The local region’s unemployment rate is down six tenths of a percentage point compared to November 2010. That’s good news to area economists like Dana Harris, a business professor at Keystone College.

Thousands of Pennsylvania residents who have their child support payments credited to a state-issued debit card were unable to access money posted to the cards last week due to a processing error, but the problem has now been resolved. Domestic relations offices statewide, including in Luzerne County, were flooded with calls Tuesday from parents who did not receive money that was supposed to be deposited onto “This was the cards on Dec. 21 and a really Dec. 22. bad time Child supbecause port payments are handled they withthrough the held half of State Disbursement and Col- my previlection Unit, ous paywhich electronically deposits ment in funds directly Decemto a bank account or a debit ber.” card, known an Kathryn Mineo Eppicard. Card of Swoyersville holders can then use the card to get cash or purchase goods at retailers. The problem, which affected only the debit cards, occurred after Wells Fargo Bank, which processes the payments, changed the name of the electronic file into which deposits are made by the state, said Ann Bale, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Public Welfare, which oversees child support enforcement. Bale said the name change was made without giving the state sufficient notice, which led to errors in processing of about $1 million in support payments to 12,158 parents statewide. The error was corrected by around 1 p.m. Tuesday, and all money has now been credited, she said. See GLITCH, Page 12A

Cash tolls going up again on Turnpike

Exeter’s proposed business tax stirs concerns State law forbids a percentage tax on receipts, but not a flat rate.

The Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Tolls are going up again for drivers paying in cash on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Under the new tolls that take effect Sunday, drivers paying with E-ZPass won’t see an increase. The five-member Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission approved the toll hike in July as part of an effort to generate money needed to help pay off bonds that fund highway improvements and mass transit systems around the state. This year’s hike marks the fourth straight annual boost by the commission to pay off the bonds, and will raise approximately $23 million in new revenue next year. The new rates will

EXETER – To the dismay of some business owners, borough council at its meeting next week will consider imposing a $2,500 tax on businesses that gross more than $500,000 annually. “I definitely wouldn’t be for it. It’s hard enough trying to make it the way it is,” said Dave Voitek Jr., owner of Voitek TV and Appliances. “I don’t think any tax hike is a good idea at this time. The economy is a little shaky and anything that inhibits business is a bad idea at this time, especially for businesses that were hit by flooding,” he said.

Autopsy done on man’s torso found in bags alongside road The Associated Press

MOUNT POCONO — A coroner has ruled that the death of a man whose torso was found wrapped in garbage bags along a Monroe County road was a homicide. Police said that a passing motorist spotted the black bags at about 2:30 p.m. Monday on Route 191 in Paradise Township. Coroner Bob Allen said a forensic autopsy at Lehigh Valley Medical Center concluded that the torso was that of a 45- to 60-yearold man dead for a couple of weeks or months. A follow-up autopsy is planned to try to determine how long the remains had been there. Allen said the victim has not been identified. He declined comment on the cause of death. Officials believe the man’s arms, legs and head may also have been dumped along the road recently.

John Richard Eshelman December 27, 2011

COURT BRIEFS WILKES-BARRE – A city man sentenced earlier this month to seven to 14 years in state prison for his role in a $3.6 million cocaine distribution ring has asked a judge to reduce the length of his sentence. John Ricci, 38, with a last known address of Gilligan Street, was sentenced on Dec. 16 by Luzerne County Judge Thomas Burke on several drugrelated charges he had previously pleaded guilty to. Prosecutors say Ricci participated in the drug ring operated by members of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club, which distributed cocaine throughout the area beginning in July 2008. In court papers filed Tuesday through his attorney, John Donovan, Ricci said he should be given a reduced sentence because he has no “significant criminal history” in that the drug charges are the first felony charges he has faced; and because Ricci has testified for prosecutors on several occasions at local preliminary hearings and before the state-wide grand jury against a number of his co-defendants.

Powell begins his sentence

Former attorney Robert Powell began his 18-month prison sentence Tuesday. Powell reported at around 2 p.m. Tuesday to FPC Pensacola, a federal minimum-security prison camp housing male offenders, according to his attorney, Joseph D’Andrea. The camp is located on Saufley Field, an outlying base of the Pensacola Naval Air Station in northwestern Florida. Powell was originally ordered to report to prison Nov. 30, but U.S. District Judge Edwin Kosik granted a request to Powell postpone his report date until Tuesday so Powell could be with his wife while she underwent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor. Powell pleaded guilty in July 2009 to charges of failing to report a crime relating to his payment of $772,500 in kickbacks to former Luzerne County judges Michael Conahan and Mark Ciavarella. Inmates at FPC Pensacola have access to jobs at the adjacent naval base and to a variety of leisure-time activities, including intramural sports, lawn games, music, weekly movie screenings sometimes held in the base theater and educational and occupational training, according to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.

Casey seeks warning funds

U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, on Tuesday called on the Department of Commerce to include robust funding for flood forecasting systems and weather monitoring technologies in the 2012 National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration budget. NOAA, which provides funding for river basin commissions to do flood forecasting, received $4.9 billion for fiscal year 2012 from the Senate Appropriations Committee, up $306 million over 2011. NOAA and the Department of Commerce are responsible for deciding how to distribute those funds. In a letter to Commerce Secretary John Bryson, Casey recalled the devastation wrought by tropical storms Lee and Irene and encouraged NOAA to support proposals that improve forecasting Casey of severe weather. The Susquehanna River Basin Commission in 2011 lost federal funding for its Susquehanna Flood Forecast and Warning System, which monitors river levels and provides early warning of floods. The National Weather Service, the SRBC and its member-state agencies – including the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection – have kept the system running in the absence of federal dollars. The SRBC at its most recent meeting in Plains Township Dec. 15 requested Congress provide NOAA $2.4 million for the forecast system in 2012.

WILKES-BARRE – Fueled by an appreciation of the powers of laughter, a grandmother and her two visiting grandsons brightened up a “Laughing dreary Tuesday. usual, participais healthy ntsAsstood up and oneand heal- by-one told their jokes at the Jewish Commuing; humor nity Center’s monthly gives you a Laughing Club meeting. positive But this week’s sesframe of sion took on a new dimension. Club founmind.” der Sara Mayers’ Jeannine Luby grandsons – Ryan and Comic Matt Mayers – were there to videotape the event with a plan to pitch it to “The Rosie Show,” for airing. The show is hosted by longtime TV talk show host Rosie O’Donnell on the Oprah

Winfrey Network. Ryan Mayers, 35, a Chicago-based filmmaker, is an editor on “The Rosie Show.” Matt Mayers, 33, is a freelance filmmaker in New York City. “We’re very proud of our grandmother for organizing this club,” Ryan said. “We thought it would be interesting to document a meeting on film and I hope ‘The Rosie Show’ will be interested in airing it as a segment or a video clip.” Matt said the club members offered “an old-fashioned sense of humor.”

“I think everybody feels better when they laugh,” Matt said. “They got excited when they told a joke; everyone needs laughter.” Bob Capin, former president of Wilkes University, told three jokes. “There are a lot of new faces here today, so I will tell this joke I told last week,” Capin began. A woman yelled, “Don’t worry, they won’t remember it.” Laughter – lots of laughter. See LAUGHING, Page 12A

Police, school officials mum on probe of Sem teacher Lower School music teacher on administrative leave after school told of probe in Forty Fort. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

FORTY FORT – A music teacher at Wyoming Seminary Lower School was placed on administrative leave when the school was notified in November of an investigation by Forty Fort police. Robert Lugiano, of Shavertown, could not be reached for comment. Several attempts last week and on Tuesday to contact Lugiano were unsuccessful. Lugiano is a music teacher and

band director at the lower school campus in Forty Fort. Forty Fort police officer Bill Stone said he could not provide details of the investigation. He did say the investigation is ongoing, and the Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office is involved. No charges have been filed. In an undated letter sent to parents, Wyoming Seminary President Kip P. Nygren said he placed Lugiano on official administrative leave effective Nov. 18. “On Nov. 17, the school was made aware that the Forty Fort Borough Police opened an investigation of Bob Lugiano for an alleged incident that may have taken place on campus,” Nygren’s letter says. “It is believed

that no student or other member of the Wyoming Seminary community was involved in the alleged incident. Wyoming Seminary takes any allegation of this sort extremely seriously and I placed Bob on official administrative leave effective November 18.” Nygren did not return messages for comment. Nygren’s letter informs parents that Lugiano’s responsibilities in the performing arts department will be handled by other staff members. “At this time, I have not been given any further updates on the status of the investigation,” Nygren wrote. “The safety and security of our students and all members of our community are paramount in every action we take.”

Councilmen-elect Jim Bobeck and Tim McGinley said they’d both like to serve as council chairman, and Councilman-elect Stephen A. Urban said he may be interested. The 11-member council will choose a chairperson at its first meeting Jan. 2. Urban, a county commissioner, said during a home rule transition work session Tuesday night that he does not believe Bobeck has done an effective job as home rule transition chairman. Urban, who sat in the audience rather than with the rest of the group, said Bobeck would have to abstain from participating in some decisions because Bobeck’s father works for a company that has contracts with the county.Urbansaidhewould make sure all council members were fully informed if he is chosen as chairman. Councilman-elect Edward Brominski walked out of the session after Urban’s comments, saying Urban mismanaged the county as a commissioner. “I don’t want to sit and listen to his garbage anymore,” Brominski said. Bobeck said he would abstain from voting if he has a conflict. He told the group he wants to be chairman because he understands what decisions must be made and has demonstrated that he’s willing to invest the time. McGinley said he will be available any time of the day because he is retiring. He said he has been busy discussing what must be done because he is interested in a leadership position, though he said he believes a new chairperson should be selected every year to provide new ideas. Three council members-elect said they are interested in the vice chairperson post – Rick Morelli, Rick Williams and Linda McClosky Houck. The work session wrapped up around11 p.m. The meeting didn’t start until after 9 p.m. because the transition members had to interview council clerk applicants. The transition committee also interviewed former county Budget/Finance Chief Tom Pribulafortheinterimcountymanagerposition on Tuesday night. The council members-elect agreed to hold a joint swearing-in ceremony at 10 a.m. Jan.2 in the courthouse rotunda. County President Judge Thomas Burke will make comments and administer the oath of office. The group also agreed to inviteoutgoingCommissionerChairwoman Maryanne Petrilla and home rule charter drafter Jim Haggerty to co-host the ceremony and make comments. The public is invited. The new council will hold its first meeting at 11:30 a.m. in the commissioners’ meeting room to choose the chairperson and other officers and appoint an interim or permanent manager. Another meeting will likely be held the next day to reopen the county budget. The council will likely hold its regular meetings on Tuesday nights.

Memo reveals Newt Gingrich once lauded rival’s Massachusetts health plan

Romney acting like the victor

DES MOINES, Iowa — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney carried himself Tuesday like a man with the party nomination in hand, even before the first votes have been cast, while a newly unearthed memo showed chief rival Newt Gingrich once offered glowing praise for what Romney did for health care in Massachusetts as governor. Romney spent the first part of the day in New Hampshire while most of his GOP rivals rumbled through Iowa’s small towns by bus in a final, frenzied dash of retail politicking

before the Iowa caucuses in exactly one week. “I’m not exactly sure how all this is going to work, but I think I’m going to get the nomination if we do our job right,” Romney said inside a packed dining room at the Coach Stop restaurant in Londonderry, N.H. Ignoring his GOP rivals, the former governor targeted President Barack Obama instead, accusing him of trying to turn the U.S. into an “entitlement nation.” Romney also signaled another line of attack against the Democrat in which he would ask voters, “Do you think

you’re better off than you were four years ago?” “We know the answer to that one,” Romney said with a smile. Meanwhile, a 2006 memo by Gingrich showed that he once praised the health care law Romney put in place in Massachusetts as governor. Romney’s rivals, including Gingrich, have tried to tar him for enacting the series of health care changes. Gingrich called the law “the most exciting development of the past few weeks” and one with “tremendous potential to effect major change in the American health system.”

Iran threatens on oil route

official news agency on Tuesday I ran’s quoted a top official as saying Iran

will close the Strait of Hormuz, cutting off oil exports, if the West imposes sanctions on Iran’s oil shipments. According to the IRNA report Tuesday Vice President Mohamed Reza Rahimi said Iran does not want hostilities but charged that the West continues its plots against Iran. The West is considering limiting Iran’s oil trade over its disputed nuclear program. Some 80 percent of Iran’s foreign revenue comes from oil exports. In Washington, State Department spokesman Mark Toner called the threat “bluster.”

STAMFORD, CONN.

Embers caused fatal fire Connecticut officials said Tuesday a Christmas morning fire that killed a couple and three of their grandchildren was caused by old fireplace embers. Officials say the fire was an accident caused by hot fireplace embers that were discarded near a mudroom on the first floor of the house. The officials say it isn’t clear if the home had working smoke detectors. Stamford Mayor Michael Pavia calls it a tragic accident. “The preliminary information is it was just a tragic accident,” he said, adding that foul play had been ruled out. DETROIT

Escorts seen as targets Detroit police fear that a killer may be targeting escorts after finding that three of four women found dead in car trunks within blocks of each other this month had placed sex-related ads on the same website. Attorneys general for 45 states had raised concerns earlier this year about how the site, Backpage.com, polices ads for adult services. Police Chief Ralph Godbee said authorities find the link “disconcerting.” The deaths could be connected, Godbee said, though he has said police were “stopping short” of calling it the work of a serial killer. The latest victims were found Christmas morning, when Detroit firefighters discovered their badly burned bodies in the trunk of a car that had been set ablaze in a garage. They were identified as women ages 28 and 29, and police were awaiting a determination from the medical examiner’s office on cause of death. WASHINGTON

Borrowing limit hike sought The Obama administration will ask Congress to raise the nation’s borrowing limit by $1.2 trillion this week, marking the third and final increase from a deal negotiated over summer. Treasury officials said Tuesday that the increase is necessary because the government will be within $100 billion of its current limit by Friday. The debt limit is the amount the government can borrow to finance its operations. The latest increase will boost that limit to $16.4 trillion. Officials say that should be enough to allow the government to keep borrowing until the end of 2012 — just after the presidential election. Congress can reject the request, although Obama can veto their objection. If Congress doesn’t act by Jan. 14, the increase will take place automatically. .

By BASSEM MROUE Associated Press

BEIRUT — Syria’s army suspended days of punishing attacks on the restive city of Homs and began withdrawing its tanks Tuesday just as Arab League monitors visited the area, activists and officials said. Huge crowds poured into the streets shortly after the pullback, shouting defiantly that they will not be cowed by the

march in a funeral. They carried the open casket overhead with the exposed face of an older man with a white beard. “Listen Bashar: If you fire bullets, grenades or shells at us, we will not be scared,” one person shouted to the crowd through loudspeakers. Many were waving Syria’s independence flag, which predates the 1963 ascendancy of President Bashar Assad’s Baath party to power. About 60 Arab League monitors — the first Syria’s regime has allowed in during

its nine-month crackdown on an anti-government uprising — began work Tuesday. They are there to ensure compliance with the League’s plan to halt violence against mostly unarmed, peaceful protesters and the pullback in Homs was the first tangible sign Assad was implementing any of the terms. After signing on to the plan early last week, Assad’s regime had only intensified the violence, rather than easing up, and it was condemned internationally for flouting the agreement. Government troops killed hundreds in just the past week. On Monday, security forces killed at least 42 people, most of them in Homs.

No big parade yet planned for troops returning from Iraq By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Americans probably won’t be seeing a huge ticker-tape parade anytime soon for troops returning from Iraq, and it’s not clear if veterans of the nine-year campaign will ever enjoy the grand, flag-waving, red-whiteand-blue homecoming that the nation’s fighting men and women received after World War II and the Gulf War. Officials in New York and Washington say they would be happy to help stage a big celebration, but Pentagon officials say they haven’t been asked to plan one. With tens of thousands of U.S. troops still fighting in Af-

ghanistan, anything that looks like a big victory celebration could be seen as unseemly and premature, some say. “It’s going to be a bit awkward to be celebrating too much, given how much there is going on and how much there will be going on in Afghanistan,” said Don Mrozek, a military history professor at Kansas State University. Two New York City councilmen have called for a tickertape parade down the stretch of Broadway known as the Canyon of Heroes. A similar celebration after the Gulf War was paid for with more than $5.2 AP FILE PHOTO million in private donations, a model the councilmen would Sgt.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. — A babysitter and trusted neighbor has confessed that he bludgeoned a 9year-old Indiana girl to death with a brick then dismembered her, hiding her head, hands and feet at a home where he was staying and dumping the rest of her remains nearby, police said Tuesday. Allen County sheriff’s investigators said in an affidavit that 39year-old Michael Plumadore admits he killed Aliahna Lemmon on Thursday. According to the affidavit, Plumadore told police that after beating Aliahna Plumadore to death on the front steps of the home in the early morning hours, he stuffed her body into trash bags and hid her in the freezer at the home in a rundown trailer park in Fort Wayne. He said he later chopped up her body with a hacksaw and stuffed her remains into freezer bags. Police said Plumadore told them he had hidden Aliahna’s head, feet and hands at the trailer and discarded her other remains at a nearby business. Police obtained a warrant to search the trailer on Monday and found the body parts. Authorities didn’t say Tuesday why Plumadore killed the child, but Sheriff Ken Fries said investigators suspected Plumadore was involved since soon after she was reported missing Friday night. Investigators questioned him Friday and Saturday and he was arrested Monday after being interviewed by detectives for several hours more. Fries said his long police career told him that Plumadore’s account of the girl’s disappearance had too many inconsistencies. “Things that were said in 29 years of doing this that just didn’t make sense,” Fries said during a Tuesday news conference. “We needed to get him to talk.” Fries said Plumadore was “factual” in talking with investigators, but he wouldn’t describe Plumadore’s demeanor. A judge ordered Plumadore held without bail or bond at an initial hearing Tuesday, sheriff’s department spokesman Cpl. Jeremy Tinkel said. He has yet to be formally charged in Aliahna’s death.

Police tape lines the scene where police found seven people dead in an apartment on Sunday in Grapevine, Texas.

Victims of Christmas shooting all family Gunman was dressed as Santa Claus when he shot six others, then himself. By DANNY ROBBINS and JAMIE STENGLE Associated Press

GRAPEVINE, Texas — A 56year-old suburban Dallas man facing marital and financial problems killed his estranged wife, two teenage children and three other family members on Christmas Day while dressed as Santa Claus before turning the gun on himself, authorities said Tuesday. A police spokeswoman said Aziz Yazdanpanah died of a selfinflicted gunshot wound and the six others were shot to death. Police responding Sunday morning to a 911 call made without anyone on the line found the seven people inside an apartment near Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. It appeared they had been opening presents around their Christmas tree just before the attack. Yazdanpanah became the focus of detectives after his SUV was found outside the apartment and police believe he made the silent 911 call. The slayings have shaken friends and neighbors who knew Yazdanpanah and his wife, both of whom were born in Iran, as well as their two U.S.-born children. “The Persian community is devastated,” said Mashy Modjdehi, a friend of both Yazdanpanah’s wife of 24 years, Fatemah Rahmati, as well as her sister, Zohreh, who also was killed. In addition to Yazdanpanah, authorities said those killed were Rahmati, 55, their daughter Nona, 19, their son Ali, 14, Zohreh Rahmaty, 58, Zohreh’s husband, Mohamad Hossein Zarei, 59, and their daughter, Sara Fatemeh Zarei, 22. Grapevine police spokesman Robert Eberling said Tuesday that detectives believe Yazdanpanah’s marital and financial troubles led him to kill his family. “That’s kind of what we’re looking at now,” Eberling said. “We have been speaking to family members and hope to find out more.” Modjdehi said Yazdanpanah’s wife moved out of the couple’s 3,010-square-foot home in Colleyville in April and into the apartment complex two miles away. The two children moved with her. Rahmati, known to family and friends as Nasrin, filed for bankruptcy in August 2010, and she told her attorney she hoped the proceedings would stave off foreclosure of the home where the family had lived for more than a decade. She separated from Yazdanpanah in the midst of the bankruptcy and the proceedings were

later dismissed because she failed to make the plan payments, said the attorney, George Barnes. He said his notes show that Rahmati told him, “Please don’t talk to the husband at all.” Barnes said Yazdanpanah initially accompanied his wife to meetings related to the bankruptcy and listed his occupation as “self-employed.” According to federal court records, Yazdanpanah was placed on three years’ probation in 1996 after pleading guilty to one count of subscribing to a false income tax return. He also was fined $1,000 and required to pay $30,119 in restitution to the U.S. Department of Justice. Three years later, Yazdanpanah and his wife filed jointly for bankruptcy. That case was discharged in a matter of months.

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — A California man was charged on Tuesday with attempted murder in the shooting of an Afghanistan war veteran at a homecoming party during what authorities said was a fight over football teams. But the attorney for 19-yearold Ruben Ray Jurado said his client was apparently under attack when shots were fired at Christopher Sullivan at the party to welcome him home for the holidays. Prosecutors in San Bernardino County charged Jurado with attempted murder and multiple sentencing enhancements for using a firearm. Jurado had surrendered himself to authorities a day earlier for investigation in the shooting that critically wounded the 22-

year-old Purple Heart recipient. Authorities said Jurado, who had played footJurado ball with Sullivan in high school, began arguing with Sullivan’s brother over football teams at the party Friday night and then punched him. Sullivan intervened and Jurado pulled a gun and opened fire, hitting Sullivan in the neck, police said. Sullivan remains in critical condition. His relatives say the gunfire shattered his spine and left him paralyzed from the neck down. “He’s opening his eyes more,” his 20-year-old brother Brandon Sullivan told the Associated Press. “We’re just waiting day by day.” Sullivan was wounded in a suicide bombing attack last year while serving with the military

in Afghanistan. He suffered a cracked collarbone and brain damage in the attack and had been recovering in Kentucky, where he is stationed, before coming home for the holidays. Defense attorney Michael J. Holmes said earlier on Tuesday that he wanted to talk to his client and the district attorney before commenting further on the case. “It appears that he was being attacked and he was on the ground and was being kicked in the back, stomach, the head, and that is consistent with the injuries that I observed,” Holmes said. “It is alleged at that point that Mr. Sullivan was shot.” Sullivan was an avid wrestler and football player in high school in San Bernardino, about 60 miles east of Los Angeles. He had nine months to go in the military and then planned to be-

come a firefighter or police officer. He always liked to help people, his brother said. “Say there was a person at school who never had friends or nothing — Chris would be the person who would go up to him and try to be his friend. He didn’t like people to feel alone,” Brandon Sullivan said. “He always had a smile on his face.” On Friday night, Sullivan’s friend Peter Baltimore said he was supposed to attend the party but didn’t make it. The 21-year-old said he called his friend the next morning and was surprised when it went to voicemail because Sullivan always answered his phone. “You don’t think something like that would happen at a homecoming party for someone who has been serving their country,” said Baltimore, who had planned to train with Sullivan, a fellow mixed martial arts fighter, in the coming year. “We’re all praying for him.”

By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – Workers and customers were shaken but unharmed after an armed robbery at the Queen Nails salon at the corner of South Main and Sullivan Street on Tuesday evening. According to a salon manager, who declined to give her name, shortly before 7 p.m. a man burst into the salon, waved a handgun and demanded the six workers and four customers inside hand over their money. In addition to an undetermined amount of cash, the robber also made off with the phones MATT HUGHES/THE TIMES LEADER and other items belonging to cus- Police speak with employees and customers Tuesday inside the tomers. He fled on foot into a Queen Nails salon on South Main Street after an armed robbery. parking lot across South Main Street toward Bank of America, the woman said. Wilkes-Barre police are investigating. The salon manager described the suspect as a black male approximately 22 to 24 years old, medium build and standing about 5 feet, 10 inches tall. He carried a silver handgun, possibly a .38 caliber, she said. Witnesses also indicated a second person may have acted as a lookout outside the salon, which is brightly lit and wrapped in large windows offering unobstructed views inside. The woman said she and other victims of the robbery were “shaken” but otherwise OK after the holdup.

HARVEYS LAKE -- A man was arraigned Tuesday in WilkesBarre Central Court on charges he tried to disarm a police officer and damaged a cruiser by kicking a window. Matthew S. Epright III, 52, of May Avenue, was charged with disarming a law enforcement officer, simple assault, resisting arrest, terroristic threats, criminal mischief, disorderly conduct and harassment. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $5,000 bail. According to the criminal complaint: Police investigated a fight involving Epright and his son, Matthew Epright IV, 28, at their May Avenue residence just after 8:30 p.m. Monday. The elder Epright stormed out of a room and threatened his son

saying, “I am gonna put a bullet in your (expletive),” the complaint says. Epright told police he was not going to be arEpright rested and struggled with officer Thomas Nalbone. Lehman Township officer Charles Musial arrived at the house and assisted Nalbone in arresting Epright. Epright was being escorted to an ambulance for chest pain. When handcuffs were removed from his wrists, police said, he grabbed Musial’s handgun and tried to remove it from its holster.

Musial stunned Epright with a Taser to prevent the gun from being pulled from the holster, the complaint says. Epright was seated in the rear of a police cruiser and allegedly kicked out a window. The younger Epright told police they were at a bar drinking and his father became violent when they arrived home. Police said the younger Epright suffered facial injuries and the elder Epright was treated at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township, for chest pain. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on Jan. 5 before District Judge James Tupper in Kingston Township.

OUR OPINION: PRESERVATION

Time is now to care for past

A

S ANOTHER YEAR reaches its final stage, we reflect on things old and new – and wonder which has greater value. ❏ A 15-year-old gym shoe doesn’t typically hold much appeal. Fashion a new Nike sneaker after a 1996 hot seller, however, and you apparently can slap a $180 price tag on it, market it as a “limited release” and send people into fits to buy a pair. Pre-Christmas shoppers in pursuit of retro Air Jordans jostled and fought – and, in at least one instance, knifed – one another to carry home the coveted footwear. For that kind of cash, why not scoop up four pairs of Chuck Taylors? Or a decent wingtip? ❏ Cities such as Cleveland – presumably to be joined in 2012 by Wilkes-Barre – are knocking down empty homes to make certain neighborhoods more appealing.

where in the community? ❏ The nearly 154-year-old Luzerne County Historical Society aims to increase its ability to collect and maintain pieces of our collective past by boosting its membership and raising more money. “In order to accomplish our mission and continue to accept collections of manuscripts, books and museum objects,” states a letter distributed by the society earlier this month, “we need to expand our archive and make the most efficient use of our existing space.” The nonprofit organization intends to double its membership in the next four years, to 2,000, according to the letter. Similarly, it seeks over that multiyear span to raise $1.6 million for its endowment, bringing the fund’s total to $3 million. At first glance, those might look like lofty numbers. Then again, if certain people literally fight for the “opportunity” to part with $180 for a pair of sneakers, almost no amount seems extraordinary to preserve a county’s history in perpetuity. After all, most every item in the historical society’s holdings is a “limited edition.”

OTHER OPINION: THE WORKPLACE

Offer employees flexible hours

A

S FEDERAL AND state governments pull back on child-care aid and struggle to find affordable ways to help families with problems of elder care, family advocates are looking to the private sector for more help. They’re urging employers to let caregivers have more flexible schedules to ease the burden of looking after young children and frail parents. Doing so can actually pay off for both the worker and the employer, as suggested by researchers writing for the Future of Children’s Work and Family project, a collaboration between Princeton University and the Brookings Institution. Flexible schedules can allow caregivers to work around their family obligations, which cuts down on unexpected absenteeism and the firings that can result. It would lead to higher proEDITORIAL BOARD

ductivity and a healthier workplace environment. When caregivers are fired from work for living up to their responsibilities at home, it’s an expensive move for the employer. Replacing even a minimum-wage worker costs about 20 percent of the worker’s salary, according to Heather Boushey, of the Center for American Progress. Comp time, split shifts and job sharing are tools employers can use to give employees some flexibility. Added to the pressures of caregiving, workers have had to cover for others laid off in this sluggish economy. They have watched their own salaries shrink. It’s only fair that employers, which have been able to survive a rough economy thanks to employees’ extra sweat for less pay, work this out. The Philadelphia Inquirer

Curb on mercury emissions a win for public health IT IS one of the most important public health measures in a generation, one that will save tens of thousands of American lives. It will protect the IQ of countless American kids, and help clear the air for the millions of Americans with asthma. It might be the biggest health story you’ve never heard of. I’m referring to the ruling the Obama administration unveiled Dec. 21 to control toxic mercury pollution from coal-burning power plants. These rules have been 21 years in the making, and now, at long last, they will bring Americans some relief from a pervasive toxin. The United States always has shown good sense when taking on hazardous substances in our environment. We banned lead in gasoline and paint after scientific research proved it was harming our children. We joined the world in banning CFC refrigerants after scientists demonstrated they were depleting the Earth’s ozone layer. And we took strong action to reduce sulfur emissions from coal plants, which were poisoning our forests and lakes with acid rain. Now we have taken aim at another Public Enemy: mercury. Why is this such a big deal? For many Americans, it might come as a surprise that mercury contamination is even a problem. Moms will know that doctors warn against eating too much canned tuna, but might not be sure how the mercury gets in the fish. Every year, U.S. power plants release al-

FRED KRUPP most 50 tons of mercury into the environment. When coal is burned, some of the mercury in it deposits locally and some can travel hundreds of miles to contaminate rivers, lakes, animals, plants and ultimately our bodies. Mercury is highly toxic. Mercury exposure, especially in infants and children and developing fetuses, can lead to serious neurological problems, including impacts on thinking, memory, language and fine motor skills. Scientists at New York’s Mount Sinai Center for Children’s Health and the Environment have estimated that mercury exposure causes reductions in intelligence for between 316,500 and 637,200 American children each year, and also causes disruptions in behavior. Most of these effects will last a lifetime. Many of the other toxic pollutants controlled by these rules – such as chromium, arsenic and dioxin – are known or probable carcinogens and can attack the brain, lungs, liver and kidneys. Industry lobbyists always have complained about measures to protect the environment and public health. The Clean Air Act would lead to the “collapse of entire industries,” said the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in 1971. Phasing out CFCs would kill the refrigeration

business. Removing lead from gasoline would mean huge price hikes. Despite these wild predictions, the sky never fell, the American economy continued to prosper and costs have been far outweighed by the public health benefits. President Obama and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson were right to stand firm on this rule. The new regulations will impose some costs, but they will save far more in public health benefits. And here’s what the coal lobbyists aren’t telling you: • Canned albacore tuna has become so contaminated by mercury that children under 6 should be restricted to, at most, one meal a month. Children ages 6 to 12 should eat no more than two meals a month. • All 48 of the continental United States had mercury fish consumption advisories as of March 2011. The new mercury and air toxics rule has been in the works since 1990 – long enough for the electric utilities to prepare. Many, to their credit, have done just that, and they support the new rules. But a few outliers didn’t make the necessary investments, betting they could endlessly delay the new rules. They are the ones making the most noise. Sorry, time’s up. Twenty-one years is long enough to wait for such a big, life-saving win.

don’t understand why there is no hunting allowed on Sundays in Pennsylvania. There are several reasons why it should be permitted. Many deaths are caused by animals each year, including about 150 auto-related nationwide. If hunting were allowed on Sundays, we might be able to reduce the number of accidents each year. Pennsylvania was ranked as first in deer-auto collisions in a State Farm Insurance survey. Wild animals can carry diseases, and an overpopulation of animals can make those diseases spread. Small game, such as raccoons, skunks and weasels, can carry rabies. Several members of my family had to get rabies shots because a rabid raccoon bit our dog. Deer can carry deer ticks, which can transmit Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Wild animals cost people money when the areas we inhabit overlap. Bears can damage cars and property, and they might endanger humans when looking for food.

An estimated $1.1 billion is spent on car repairs each year from deer-versus-auto accidents. Deer eat expensive shrubs, and rabbits eat greens from gardens, costing people hard-earned time and money. If Sunday hunting were allowed, it would add a total of 24 days of hunting over an entire year. I’m still in school and I have time to hunt only on weekends. Our neighbors in New York have the ability to hunt on Sundays. Given all this information, I am not sure why Pennsylvania still does not allow Sunday hunting.

Budget amendment would rein in spending

E

fforts finally are being made to get absurd government spending under control. Congressmen Lou Barletta and Tom Marino support the idea that our government should be held to a standard and forced to curb its trillion-dollar spending habit. Unfortunately for taxpayers and future generations, there hasn’t been a system in place effective enough to prevent wasteful spending. A Balanced Budget Amendment would change that by forcing our government to spend within its means. In the interest of our nation’s fiscal stability, we need to keep future generations from being saddled with mountains of debt. Thank you, Congressmen Barletta and Marino, for your support of a sorely needed amendment. It’s about time someone stands up against outrageous government spending. Theresa Kane Olyphant

Voitek Electronics on Wyoming Avenue in Exeter will have to pay an additional $2,500 in taxes each year if council adopts a new business privilege ordinance. Borough council President Richard Murawski said finding adequate revenue for the borough has become increasingly difficult.

taxes the way it is,” DePrimo said. All three business owners thought it would be fairer to tax a percentage of sales rather than a flat rate, with some noting that $2,500 could be burdensome to small-business owners who have small markups while it would be a drop in the bucket to a retail giant like Walmart that is expected to open in the borough in 2013. Charging a percentage-based business privilege tax is what cities such as Wilkes-Barre and Hazleton do. Hazleton’s tax carries a rate of 0.2 percent of gross receipts on services and rentals and 0.1 percent on retail and wholesale gross receipts; businesses that gross less than $5,000 are exempt. Wilkes-Barre charges rates of 0.15 percent for wholesale and 0.225 percent on retail.

fessor at Misericordia University, said he was hopeful that the rate would drop, even slightly, but he heard from many local employers that holiday hiring wasn’t going to be what it had been in past years. “Sales were off all year and they probably told employees to work harder, more hours and maybe even qualify for overtime, but they were not going to bring in extra people this year,” Mellon said. Liuzzo said while he had hoped to see a drop in the rate from October because of expectations that retailers would hire seasonal workers to handle holiday sales, “it wasn’t a real downer for me.” Harris and Liuzzo said they’re seeing indications that the tide is turning, albeit slowly. “The overall march is in the right direction, but the drum beat is slow right now,” Liuzzo said. He said the national employment situation is showing posi-

“They gave us very little time to make the change in our system. We worked to make the change, but some mistakes were made,” Bale said. The timing of the glitch, just a few days before Christmas, made for a rough holiday for parents like Kathryn Mineo of Swoyersville, who said she was unable to pay for Christmas presents for her 18-year-old disabled son. Mineo said it was particularly

That might have been an option for Exeter about 25 years ago, but the Local Tax Reform Act of 1988 prohibits the imposition of any new business tax based on a percentage of gross receipts after Nov. 30, 1988, according to the Taxation Manual from the Governor’s Center for Local Government Services. But the act does not prohibit new flat-rate business privilege taxes, according to the manual. Borough council President Richard Murawski said he’s aware of only two other boroughs in the state that charge such a tax. He said the idea was suggested as a possible source of revenue to council by the borough’s tax collector, Don Wilkinson Agency. Murawski said finding adequate revenue for the borough has become increasingly difficult over the past few years. “Our revenue sources are drying up. The last few budget meetings have been difficult. Something has to give. We’ve been crunching as much as we can on the expenses side. The new council will have to take a

look at it,” he said. Murawski will see his 20-year tenure on council end when new members take their seats Jan. 3. Councilman-Elect Larry Dellegrotto said a business privilege tax was brought up briefly at a prior council meeting, but no details were ever released to the public and he had no information on the proposed ordinance. Council also will consider amending an amusement tax ordinance to impose a $100 annual fee on any coin-controlled, music-playing device and a $150 annual fee on any other coin-controlled amusement device. The borough secretary is on vacation and copies of the proposed ordinances were unavailable.

tive signs and that should begin trickling down to the state and local levels. The United States’ unemployment rate decreased four-tenths of a point to 8.6 percent last month while Pennsylvania’s rate decreased two-tenths of a point to 7.9 percent. “At the national level we’re seeing some significant improvement,” Liuzzo said. And reports of holiday sales increasing nearly 4 percent over 2010 mean people believe we’re in a recovery rather than a recession. “We’re looking at a recovery here. The question is how fast or slow,” he added. The local data is included in a report released today by the Department of Labor and Industry’s Center for Workforce Information & Analysis. Among the data highlighted in the monthly report for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton region are: • All of the positive movement, both short-term and longterm, has been within serviceproviding industries. Goods-producing industries were down slightly both over the month and over the year.

• Leisure and hospitality employment showed a normal seasonal decline in November, but was up 500 from a year ago. This was the 14th consecutive month that the supersector showed an over-the-year increase. • Retail trade showed a seasonal increase of 1,400 jobs. This gain matched the previous record increase, first set in November 2007. • Professional and business services added 900 jobs in November. The increase was mainly driven by temporary hires at the Amazon.com warehouse in Hazle Township. The professional and business services supersector increased 4.5 percent locally over the year, compared to a 0.5 percent increase statewide. • Education and health services continued strong growth, adding 800 jobs since November 2010. When broken out by individual counties, Lackawanna (down one-tenth to 8.8 percent) and Wyoming (down six-tenths to 8.6 percent) saw declines in the unemployment rate, but Luzerne saw a one-tenth of a percentage point increase to 9.5 percent.

difficult because the state had withheld part of her previous support payment after determining she had received an overpayment for an unrelated reason. “This was a really bad time because they withheld half of my previous payment in December. It was like, thanks for the warning right before Christmas. I was already behind,” Mineo said. Bale said DPW realizes the error came at a bad time. State officials worked as quickly as possible to rectify the problem. “The timing of the glitch was not good. Fortunately, the money is now on the cards,” she said.

Mineo said she’s also upset because she suspects she is going to be hit with some additional charges because there is a fee charged to anyone who uses the phone to check their balance. She said she called the line repeatedly over the past several days to check if the money was there. Bale said Eppicard allows users to check balances six times a month for free. After that there is a 25-cent charge per call, but there are no plans at this time to reimburse users who were charged.

Zola’s attorneys, Ferris Webby and Joseph Yeager, argued at his trial the killing was alcoholfueled in combination with betrayal, anger and disappointment. The attorneys argued Zola did not lay in wait for Cave to return home that day, and that Zola did not know Cave was dead until told so by investigators. The attorneys argued Tuesday for a minimum sentence of eight to 20 years. Assistant District Attorneys Chester Dudick and Alexis Falvello said the events leading up to Cave’s death showed Zola had intent to kill her and that he did lay in wait. The couple had an argument at a local restaurant the night before; Cave shut off Zola’s cellphone service; Zola thought Cave was seeing other people; they argued. Zola went to Cave’s apartment, parked a block and a half away and waited for her in

Prokopchak noted the budget was “basically the same as last year.” He said both revenues and expenses had remained relatively flat. the kitchen. Prosecutors argued Tuesday for the maximum sentence of 20 to 40 years. Cave’s mother, Rosemarie Sult, spoke before Zola’s sentencing Tuesday, saying that her daughter’s death has destroyed her family and that every day she visits her daughter’s grave. “That’s all I have (left) of my baby girl,” Sult said. Cave’s daughter, Alyssa Ledden, also spoke, saying she forgives Zola for what happened, and that she remembers the good times she had with him in her life. “Every day I have to wake up and know my mother isn’t here,” Ledden said, adding that her infant son will never get to meet his Grandma Rose. “He looks just like her.” Zola’s mother, Maxine, spoke of the good son she raised, and she described him as loving, thoughtful and kind. “He loved Rose with all his heart and soul,” his mother said.

ERIE — A guidance counselor and track coach at a Pennsylvania Catholic school has been suspended without pay for two weeks after he sent the student body an insulting email criticizing the lack of fan support at a recent basketball game. Chet Moffett apologized for the email he sent to students at Erie’s Cathedral Prep high school after its Dec. 13 loss at General McLane, the Erie Times-News reported Tuesday. Moffett’s email was sent to all students at the all-male school, but primarily targeted 36 students whom the coach saw not sitting in a student cheering section.

OPINION SAM DONNELLON

Holiday now about the Classic

JOHN COLLINS WILL tell you the idea grew from seeing the same picture on several walls in the NHL offices. NBC’s Jon Miller, the other man credited with creating the Winter Classic, remembers watching people wrapped like fur trappers in Edmonton back in 2003 for an outdoor NHL game between the Oilers and Canadiens and thinking, “Yankee Stadium.” But the real heroes in the amazing growth of the Winter Classic reside not in the New York offices of Collins’ NHL, or cross town in the offices at 30 Rock, where Miller is a vice president of sports. No, the real heroes are the Einsteins who first invented the concept of the Bowl Championship Series, then moved their most significant games off New Year’s Day, or its legal holiday equivalent. To a league seeking to infiltrate American culture, it was the equivalent of volunteering to serve a game misconduct. Collins, 50, had barely unpacked his boxes when Miller called him with this idea he had been sitting on since he got that glimpse of the 2003 Heritage Classic, played in Edmonton between the Oilers and Canadiens in late November amid temperatures well below freezing.

‘Ultimate reality show’ NBC, which for 37 years had aired the Rose Bowl on that date and had a new contract with the NHL, was looking for some programming. Miller had pitched the idea to the league as far back as 2004, but it evaporated via labor strife and resistance from some owners. Collins’ arrival breathed ice back into the idea, and it became a reality on Jan. 1, 2008, when the Buffalo Sabres and Pittsburgh Penguins met amid a snowstorm in Ralph Wilson Stadium. It was pretty on television, a mess at ground level. “The ultimate reality show,” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said. The game had to be stopped to shovel off snow. Cracks appeared on the surface of what was then a rented rink. That blizzard in Buffalo in the inaugural game between the Sabres and Penguins, anticipated before the game and delivered during it, stopped thumbs in mid-channel-surf click, creating instant credibility to the game’s name, and a postgame buzz that excited those at the top of a league once scorned for its unyielding ways. Bettman bristles at that description. Since that game, the NHL has staged successful and memorable Classics in Chicago, Boston and last year, Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, where rain pushed it from a day game into a cool sight under the lights. Ratings have increased with each one and the league has experienced unprecedented revenue growth. Which explains why, when he was asked if the event had changed the sport’s image, “in your eyes,” Bettman shot back. “No, the question is, ’Has this event changed the sport’s image in your eyes?’” The answer is a resounding yes, of course. Once routinely criticized for a perceived lack of vision and copycat creativity, the NHL is perhaps the most progressive professional sports league these days.

watching Wilson and Lewis play more like seasoned veterans than rookies. Wilson led the Royals with 14 points, including three NBA range three point baskets. Lewis, who played just her second game for Holy Redeemer after transferring from Wyoming Valley West, scored 10 points/ The 5-foot-11 Wilson put on a shooting clinic from behind the arc. She tossed in a buzzer beater from 35 feet that gave Holy Redeemer a 19-8 at the end of the first quarter. “I was confident that it was going in,” Wilson said. “What I liked best is that my teammates showed trust by getting the ball to me.” Wilson also was red-hot in the second half. She nailed a threepointer midway through the fourth quarter that gave the Royals a 62-30 advantage. Lewis was outstanding of both ends of the court. Early in the first quarter, she made a perfectly timed block against Sarah Degnan, who was racing in for a layup wound up sprawled on the floor. “I was able to knock the ball away,” said Lewis, a much-hyped player who led an area eighth grade team to a national tournament last summer. Lewis also made a dazzling play play in the third quarter. She stole the ball in back court, brought it to front court and hit Julia Wignot on the other side of the basket for a layup. “I didn’t feel any pressure,” said Lewis, when asked how she’s dealing with the high expectations surrounding her. Parker, a former star at Wilkes University, had high praise for Wilson and Lewis. “I’m very fortunate to have two great freshmen on the team.” He also credited senior guard Wignot with playing a key role in the victory. “Wignot is the catalyst of this team.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Alex Dragicevich hit four 3-pointers and scored a career-high 22 points to lead Notre Dame to a 72-59 win over No. 22 Pittsburgh on Tuesday night in the Big East opener for both teams. Jerian Grant added 15 points and nine assists, and Eric Atkins also scored 15 points for the Fighting Irish (9-5, 1-0), who trailed 26-25 at intermission but rallied with a 18-for-25 performance from the field in the second half. The loss was Pitt’s second straight after a 59-54 loss to Wagner at home on Friday, while Notre Dame extended its home winning streak to 28 games.

Dwyane Wade finished with 24 points and eight assists for Miami (2-0), which got 18 from Chris Bosh and twice saw its lead cut to three in the final minutes. Cole delivered the answer both times with a pair of jump shots, and the Heat escaped.

Ray Allen scored 28 points on 8 for 12 shooting for the Celtics, while Rajon Rondo finished with 22 points and 12 assists and Keyon Dooling scored 13 off the Boston bench. Hawks 106, Nets 70

NEWARK, N.J. — Marvin Williams had 14 points and nine rebounds and the Atlanta Hawks opened a double-digit lead early and cruised past the sluggish Nets on Tuesday night in their final home opener in New Jersey. The crowd was booing the Brooklyn-bound Nets by halftime.

Gambling Boilermakers hold on

Colonels’ Mendoza offers building block

The Associated Press

DETROIT — Purdue quarterback Caleb TerBush took the final snap, sprinted to the sideline and handed the football to coach Danny Hope. Perhaps empowered by getting a contract extension recently, Hope made the gutsy decision to go for two onside kicks in the first half and both gambles paid off for the Boilermakers in a 37-32 win over Western Michigan on Tuesday night in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. Raheem Mostert returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown, third-string running back Reggie Pegram scored the first two TDs of his career and Carson Wiggs made two field goals to give the Boilermakers a 27-15 lead at halftime. Wiggs also recovered one of his onside kicks, both of which he tapped toward a sideline after running at full speed as if he was trying to boot the ball deep. Purdue (7-6) had another 12point lead early in the fourth quarter, but the Big Ten team had to hold on for the win against the Mid-American Conference program. The Broncos (7-6) got the ball with a chance to go ahead, but their comeback hopes ended when quarterback Alex Carder fumbled for his fifth turnover with just under 2 minutes left. Ryan Russell forced the final fumble and Bruce Gaston recovered to seal the win in a game that entertained 46,177 fans inside the home of the Detroit Lions. The Boilermakers played in a bowl for the first time since 2007, when they beat Central Michigan — also in Detroit. Western Michigan fell to 0-5 in postseason play. Purdue’s Akeem Shavers ran for a career-high 148 yards on 22 carries, filling in for the injured Ralph Bolden, and was named the game’s MVP. TerBush was 8 of 13 for 101 yards with a 33-yard touchdown pass to Gary Bush midway through the third quarter that put Purdue up 34-18. Robert Marve was 6 of 7 for 76 yards with a1-yard scoring pass to Pegram in the first quarter. Purdue defensive end Gerald Gooden had two of his team’s four interceptions, and gave back one of those two turnovers to the

The Penguins offense did come to a life in the second period when Paul Thompson broke in on Holtby and got off a shot. Holtby made the save but the rebound went to Zach Sill, whose shot went high. Tangradi also had a chance when his shot hit the post, something that turned into a reoccurring theme for the Penguins in the second period. “I think we hit a mask, a glove and a post all on one sequence in the second period,” Penguins captain Ryan Craig said. Head coach John Hynes was happy with his team’s response in the second period and said the Penguins had nine quality scoring chances. But none of them found the back of the net. “That was the difference in the game,” Hynes said. “When you have that hard of a push and don’t get a goal, it’s a little bit harder to come back in the next 20.”

On the night, Hershey’s power play was 2-for-6 while the Penguins blanked on four chances. A rematch at the Giant Center tonight was the only consolation the Penguins could take from Tuesday’s loss – one that won’t linger for more than a day. “We’re excited we get to play them again tomorrow,” Craig said. “That’s the great thing about these home-and-home series. We get a chance to answer back tomorrow and get right back at it in a rink that will be rocking.” NOTES - D Boris Valabik left the ice just four minutes into the game holding his hand.

Bradley said he still hasn’t spoken to Paterno since “the day after this all happened” though talks regularly to Paterno’s son, Jay, the team’s quarterbacks coach, about the 85-year-old coach’s health.

Coach: ‘Big Ben’ has shot to play The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin believes injured quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and center Maurkice Pouncey both have “a shot” to play in Sunday’s regular season finale at Cleveland. “It is our intention right now that if those guys are healthy enough to practice and prepare, then we will play them,” Tomlin said Tuesday. Given the way backups Charlie Batch and Trai Essex handled themselves in a 27-0 win over St. Louis last Saturday, the Steelers (11-4) may not need Roethlisberger or Pouncey to hurry back from their badly sprained left ankles to keep the team’s hopes of an AFC North title alive. Batch played effectively against the Rams, passing for 208 yards. ing treated for lung cancer and a broken pelvis. While Bradley has gotten many calls of advice and encouragement from fellow coaches, he saw no need to call Paterno for any advice about bowl preparations. “We’ve got a group of guys and staff that know how to prepare for a bowl game,” Bradley said. “I know Coach, I think he’d be mad if we call. He knows we have a job to do.” Asked if he got a break during the Christmas holiday, Bradley chuckled. “I didn’t get a whole lot of personal time,” he said. “Listen, Santa wasn’t real good to me this year.”

Last year, Wilkes’ Myzar Mendoza became the first Colonel wrestler to win the championship of the Wilkes Open in head coach Jon Laudenslager’s tenure. Today at the 79th annual open, also known as The Rose Bowl of Wrestling, Mendoza and other Colonels will attempt to win another gold medal for their coach, now in his ninth season. Mendoza Mendoza, a sophomore, claimed the title at 125 pounds last year. He should be in contention again today. Two of his teammates – seniors Shane Everett and Anthony Dattolo – placed second and fourth, respectively in the 2010 event. Both are returning. Dattolo enters with a record of 16-0 this season as he’s currently ranked fifth in the nation at 149 pounds in the most recent d3wrestle.com poll. Mendoza, who has been wrestling at 133 this season, begins the tournament with an 11-4 mark and is coming off a championship at the Messiah Petrofes Tournament. Everett, a 157-pounder, holds a 12-5 record this season.

HIGH SCHOOL WRESTLING

Tunkhannock prepared to host annual tourney

Two-day event features 21 teams, including one school from Northern Virginia. By DAVE ROSENGRANT drosengrant@timesleader.com

The largest high school wrestling tournament held locally is ready for the 34th edition. The Tunkhannock Kiwanis tournament will take place Thursday and Friday at Tunkhannock High School with 23 teams on hand. Wrestling will begin Thursday morning at 10:30 with the first round, and will continue throughout the day until eight wrestlers are left in each weight class. Action picks up Friday at 10 a.m., with the semifinals and the medal round slated for approximately 3 p.m. The finals are tentatively scheduled to go off at 5 p.m. Fifteen District 2 teams are part of the field, including six from the Wyoming Valley Conference and Wyoming Seminary. Representing the WVC are Coughlin, GAR, Lake-Lehman, Nanticoke, Tunkhannock and Wyoming Area. Wyoming Seminary, which participates in the high school prep division and not in District 2, is only sending a handful of grapplers from its B Team to take part in the event. From the Lackawanna League, Blue Ridge, Elk Lake, Lackawanna Trail, Montrose, Scranton, Scranton Prep, Valley View and Western Wayne will make the trip to Wyoming County for the event. Warren County, a high school from Virginia, will make another appearance in the event. The Wildcats, who are the only out of state team in the tourney, are coached by Matt Wadas, the son of tournament director Frank Wadas.

What: The 34th annual Tunkhannock Kiwanis Tournament When: Thursday and Friday at Tunkhannock H.S. Times: Wrestling begins at 10:30 a.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. Friday. The finals are scheduled for 5 p.m. Friday.

Mountain East and Wyalusing round out the field. One change was made for the 2011 event as Wyoming Seminary replaces Phoenixville. Wyalusing won the team title last year beating out second-place Honesdale by 25 points and third-place Coughlin by 35. Those three teams could once again challenge for the team trophy this week and should get strong competition from Western Wayne, Pocono Mountain East and Lake-Lehman. Four returning champions from 2010 will look to defend their titles in Warren County’s Kyle Montague (113 pounds), Northeast Bradford’s Zach Green (138), Wyalusing’s Ryan Hart (132) and Lackawanna Trail’s Eric Laytos (220). In addition to the aforementioned, eight grapplers who are wrestling in the event will be trying to improve on runner-up finishes from last year. Three of those participants are from Cedar Crest in Sean Hughes (120), Brett Pallas (138) and Cody Lloyd (145). Coughlin returns Bill Poray (113) and Frank Mahmoud (138) as silver medalists last year. Wyoming Area’s Andy Schutz (132), Western Wayne’s Joe Ingaglio (285) and Wyalusing’s Anthony Clark (182) are also back for another shot. Lake-Lehman freshman Austin Harry (132) was a state qualifier last season and will also be participating. On Thursday, five mats will be set up at Tunkhannock with three in the gym and two in the cafeteria. For Day 2, only the mats in the gym will be used.

fensive end Andre Carter, and guards Brian Waters and Logan Mankins all are starters for the AFC from the Patriots. Special teamer Matthew Slater is the other New England representative. Linebacker Willis, DE Justin Smith, cornerback Carlos Rogers and tackle Joe Staley will start for the NFC from the 49ers (12-3), who had only Smith and Willis make the Pro Bowl last year. Green Bay’s Rodgers is the starting NFC quarterback, backed by record-setting Drew Brees of New Orleans (12-3). “It does have special significance, because when I was voted in in 2009, I was the third guy and I was very thankful to be voted in, and got the opportunity to start because of some injuries and guys not going,” Rodgers said. “It’s great to be voted in as a starter, that means a lot to me and it’s a special honor.” Four of the NFL’s biggest headline makers this season did not get voted in by players, coaches and fans: Lions DT Ndamukong Suh, Steelers LB James Harrison, Panthers rookie QB Cam Newton, and Denver QB Tim Tebow. Suh might have lost support after drawing a two-game suspension for stomping an opponent, and Harrison’s one-game suspension for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Browns QB Colt McCoy might have reduced his support. Fifteen first-time Pro Bowlers made the NFC squad, including Rogers, Staley and safety Dashon Goldson of the 49ers. Thirteen AFC players were first-time selections, including Gronkowski, Carter and Slater of New England. Carter is on injured reserve (left quadriceps) and won’t play. “If you look around the NFC, you see a ton of amazing and talented players at tight end,” said the Saints’ Jimmy Graham, the starter at the position and a firsttime Pro Bowler. “And to be thought of in that company by

Moffett was harsher yet on students who sat with their girlfriends, apart from the cheering section, writing “if she made or wanted you to sit with her, then she’s a high maintenance, selfish pig and you should dump her now.” Moffett referred to other students who sat apart with classmates as “boy lovers.” The email referred to General McLane as “General McLame” and its fans as “mayonnaise sandwich eating, sister loving, trailer park dwelling clowns.” It also referred to another school, Mercyhurst Prep, as “Mercyworst.” The Rev. Scott Jabo, Cathedral Prep’s president, confirmed the email went to all students and said Moffett has apologized and offered to resign, but school officials believe he was contrite and deserves to keep his job. Moffett’s pay during the suspension is being given to General McLane and Mercyhurst, which are being encouraged to use the money for student programs. “He took full responsibility,” Jabo said. “He apologized to the

Receiver named to run struggling Split Rock Resort By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

A Philadelphia company has been appointed by a federal judge to operate Split Rock Resort while a legal dispute plays out in court. ROPA Associates LLC was assigned as a receiver to manage the day-to-day operations of the 1,200-acre year-round resort in Kidder Township, Carbon County. Split Rock is owned by Vacation Charters LTD and employs 546 people.

I N

U.S. District Court Judge A. Richard Caputo appointed ROPA Associates in November in response to a petition filed by Textron Financial Corp. that claimed Vacation Charters was on the verge of filing for bankruptcy and had improperly used maintenance fees paid by timeshare holders to pay attorneys fees and to fund a portion of a $2.2 million settlement in a separate class-action lawsuit. Textron Financial Corp. is the mortgage holder of Split Rock Resort and its properties.

B R I E F

In May, Vacation Charters was court ordered to pay more than $2.2 million to 259 salespersons who were improperly classified as independent contractors instead of employees by the company. The salespersons sold timeshares between June 2005 and December 2008. Timeshare holders of Split Rock paid annual maintenance fees that Vacation Charters improperly used to pay $150,000 in legal fees to a law firm it had employed to file a planned bankruptcy petition, according to court re-

cords filed by Textron. The bankruptcy petition had not been filed as of Tuesday. Textron also alleged Vacation Charters improperly used $345,000 from the maintenance fee account, which it later reimbursed at Textron’s insistence, to pay a portion of the $2.2 million class-action settlement. Vacation Charters in October advised Textron that it needed $2.6 million to meet payroll for its employees in November and December and to operate the resort complex through the end of

the year, according to the petition. Textron filed its own lawsuit against Vacation Charters in October, claiming the company defaulted on more than $6 million in mortgage loan agreements. The suit further alleged the company missed a payment of $45,327 into a tax reserve account and failed to provide monthly financial reports as required by the mortgage agreement. A default judgment was en-

LCD price fixing settlement

Sharp Corp., Samsung Electronics Co. and five other makers of liquid crystal display panels used in computers and televisions have agreed to pay $538.6 million to settle antitrust claims by indirect purchasers. Earlier this month, the panel makers agreed to pay $388 million to settle price-fixing claims by direct buyers of the products as part of a series of cases consolidated in federal court in San Francisco. The companies allegedly fixed prices of thin-film liquid crystal display panels, driving up prices for purchasers of televisions, notebook computers and monitors from 1999 to 2006, according to a class action, or group, lawsuit filed in 2007.

Shoppers walk to the Kmart store on Wilkes-Barre Township Boulevard in Wilkes-Barre Township on Tuesday. Sears Holdings, which owns Sears and Kmart, announced it will close 100 to 120 stores, but did not specify which ones.

Sears, Kmart struggle By MICHELLE CHAPMAN and ANNE D’INNOCENZIO AP Business Writers

NEW YORK — Sears Holdings Corp. plans to close between 100 and 120 Sears and Kmart stores to raise cash after a weak holiday shopping season for the retailer. The closings fueled speculation about whether the chain can turn itself around. Its stock fell 12.5 percent Tuesday, closing at $33.38. The closings are the latest and most visible in a long series of moves to try to fix a company that has struggled with falling sales and shabby stores as rivals like Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Target Corp. spruced up their looks and turned into one-stop shopping sources. “There’s no reason to go to Sears,” said New York-based independent retail analyst Brian Sozzi. “It offers a depressing shopping experience and uncompetitive prices.” Sears did not say which stores will

Home prices fall again

The Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller index released Tuesday showed prices dropped in October from September in 19 of the 20 cities tracked. It was the second consecutive monthly decline. Home prices have fallen roughly 32 percent nationwide since the housing bubble burst five years ago.

close but said it will post on http:// www.searsmedia.com when a final list is compiled. The company would not discuss how many, if any, jobs would be cut. Locally there are Kmart stores in Wilkes-Barre, Hazle and Pittston townships, Moosic, Berwick and Scranton. A store in Edwardsville has been closed since the September flooding. Sears has locations at the Wyoming Valley Mall, Viewmont Mall and Columbia Mall. It also operates a distribution center at the Hanover Industrial Estates in Hanover Township. Billionaire investor Edward Lampert purchased Kmart out of bankruptcy in 2003 and bought Sears, Roebuck & Co. a year later. Since 2004 Sears Holdings — which operates both Kmart and Sears stores — has watched its cash and short-term investments go from about $2.09 billion for the year ended Jan. 31, 2004 to $1.34 billion for the year ended Jan. 31, 2011, according to FactSet.

ure now stands at about $700 million. Some industry experts say part of the problem Sears is facing is that economic difficulties continue to grip its core customers. These middle-income shoppers have seen their wages fail to keep up with higher costs for household basics like food. But the bigger issue, analysts say, is that Sears hasn’t invested in remodeling, leaving its stores uninviting. Sears Holdings announced Tuesday that revenue at stores open at least a year fell 5.2 percent for the quarter-to-date at both Sears and Kmart. That includes the critical holiday shopping period. Its Kmart stores reported a 4.4 percent decline, with layaway faltering as rivals like WalMart and Toys R Us found success with their own layaway programs. Both Kmart and Sears stores reported weak consumer electronics sales. Sears, whose same-store revenue dropped 6 percent, also reported softer sales of home appliances. 10-YR T-NOTE 2.01%

KIDDER TWP. – A Missouri company that owns or manages 10 ski resorts across the country has added two local ski areas to its portfolio. Peak Resorts Inc., of Wildwood, Mo., has purchased Jack Frost Mountain and Big Boulder Ski Area from Blue Ridge Real Estate Co. for $9 million. Peak Resorts is familiar with the two Carbon County resorts because it has leased and managed them since 2005. “Jack Frost and Big Boulder have been an important part of our portfolio since 2005, and we are very happy to be adding them to our family of resorts long term,” Jesse Boyd, vice president of Peak Resorts, said in a statement posted on the company’s website. Now with12 resorts, Peak owns or operates more ski areas in the United States than any other company. These are its first acquisitions in Pennsylvania. Its properties include Attitash, Crotched Mountain and Wildcat in New Hampshire, Mount Snow in Vermont and others in Ohio, Indiana and Missouri. Carl Wilgus, the president and chief executive officer of the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau, said he sees the sale as a positive for the ski resorts. “That company owns 12 ski areas so it should provide them with additional resources and marketing power,” Wilgus said. He said the company is very familiar with the two resorts and wouldn’t have made a decision to spend $9 million if it didn’t like what it was seeing. Known first as Hazard Mountain, Big Boulder opened to the public in 1949 and was later renamed, becoming the first commercial ski operation in Pennsylvania. In 1956, it employed the first successful snowmaking application in the country. Big Boulder has 15 trails, nine lifts and two terrain parks. Jack Frost Mountain, which opened in 1972, offers 21 trails, eight lifts and five terrain parks. A message left with a Jack Frost/Big Boulder spokeswoman was not returned Tuesday.

The storm that brought yesterdays rain is now moving out of the area. As it pulls away, it will bring us windy conditions at times along with snow showers and flurries. A steady W-NW wind of 1520mph will howl this morning and early afternoon. It will be colder as well with afternon temps in the 30s. The temperature will drop into the lower 20s this evening. It looks like warmer air will move back over the region just in time for the holiday weekend. Friday should be little warmer but will feature some light rain and sprinkles. Saturday should be mild with temperatures in the 40s. - Kurt Aaron

CHEF’S CORNER THOMAS COOK RAMADA HOTEL

No-bake pie takes stress out of holiday By MICHELLE LOCKE

For The Associated Press

T

he economy may be in a funk and consumer spending in a slump, but there’s one glass that seems to be more than half full — flutes of Champagne to be precise. • After seeing sales tumble as the recession hit, Champagne shipments were up nearly 22 percent comparing the first six months of this year to the same period in 2010, with a total of 7.5 million bottles shipped to the United States as of June, according to the Washington-based Champagne Bureau. • From July 2010 to June 2011, 18.3 million bottles were shipped, about a 20 percent increase over the July 2009-June 2010 period. • The trend may be due to people spending more, between $30 and $50 on a bottle of wine, says Gwendolyn Osborn, wine expert for online retailer Wine.com. Because there are some good Champagnes to be found in that range, “people are buying them, since it is viewed as a luxury,” she says.

Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label, which sells for about $45 on the site, was No. 6 on Wine.com’s Top 10 sellers for 2011. Bargain-priced bubbles were popular too, of course. The No. 2 wine on the list was a cava from Spain, Jaume Serra Cristalino Brut Cava, which goes for $7.99. Still, there was definite interest in Champagne. Dom Perignon 2002, which has a price tag of about $160, jumped from 67th place last year to No. 27 on the list this year. No need to sell author and wine expert Leslie Sbrocco on the joys of Champagne. She’s such a fan she had a glass of pink bubbly tattooed on her calf. Sbrocco, author of “Wine for Women” and founder of the website ThirstyGirl.com, likes all kinds of sparkling wine, including cava from Spain and prosecco from Italy. “But Champagne is the icon; it is the mother ship, if you will, of bubbles,” she points out. “So when I think of bubbles I immediately am drawn to Champagne.” To be called Champagne, the wines have to be made with grapes from the Champagne region of

France. Sparkling wines are believed to have originated as a happy accident: Grapes were fermented and barreled during a cool harvest, which made the yeasts that turn sugar into alcohol go dormant. A warm spring then woke up the yeasts, restarted fermentation and, in the process, created bubbles. Just where and when that happened is unclear, but records show that sparkling wines were produced in the Languedoc region of southern France decades before the Champagne region became renowned for its sparkling wine. At first, winemakers saw bubbles as a flaw and a dangerous one at that since the re-fermentation could cause the weak glass bottles of the era to explode. The advent of better corks and stronger bottles helped turn Champagne into a reliable product, one that was taken up by the French royal court. These days, sparkling wines are available from all over the world, including many that are made the same way as Champagne. Still, Champagne See CHAMPAGNE, Page 2C

THE HOLIDAYS CAN be very stressful, especially when everyone is shopping late. The supermarkets sometimes become unbearable, with people blocking the aisles in which you need to obtain many ingredients. My No-Bake Chocolate Peppermint Pie requires only a few ingredients that are sure to add lots of flavor. Chocolate pudding topped with marshmallow, whipped cream and peppermint candies, all over a crumbled crust, will make some of your kitchen work simpler so you can enjoy free time over the holiday week. You can also substitute a flavor of your choice for the chocolate pudding.

Ingredients:

Crust: 1 2/3cup graham crackers 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoon butter, melted Filling: 3/4 cups sugar 2 tablespoons cornstarch 1 1⁄2 cups milk 1 egg 2 tablespoon butter 3 ⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips or 1 ⁄2 cup Dutch-processed cocoa Whipped Cream: 2 tablespoons whole milk 1 1-pound bag miniature marshmallows 2 cups heavy cream 1⁄4 cup sugar 2 tablespoon vanilla extract May add food coloring for a holidaythemed pie Steps: Crust: Combine ingredients and press in to coat 9-inch pie pan Filling: Combine dry ingredients and egg in a large bowl, then add to a medium sauce pan. Stir in milk and bring to a boil over medium heat. Lower heat while whisking gently for a few extra minutes. Remove from heat, add vanilla extract. Layer over crust. Whipped Cream: Beat ingredients until soft peak forms. Apply over pudding with spoon or spatula. Garnish with peppermint candies.

A fresh take on the (tired) meatball appetizer So long dull shrimp cocktail By ALISON LADMAN For The Associated Press

ALISON LADMAN For The Associated Press

Meatballs are a great holiday entertaining food. They are homey, well-loved and easy to do ahead of time. But let’s face it, they’ve been done. They’ve been done with grape jelly and ketchup. They’ve been done with beer and barbecue sauce. And they’ve been done with creamy gravies. So how about something a little different? Something that adds some zing to the appetizer offerings. This recipe has all that, plus a do-ahead sensibility. We’ve given directions for making the meatballs on the stove, but if AP PHOTO you prefer you can transfer them to Cranberry chipotle meatballs are a great holiday entertaining food.

Is shrimp cocktail a mainstay of your holiday-season party table? And are you a little bored with the same old dish? This year, try something different. We start with the same easy, pre-cooked shrimp, but this time they get tossed with a zesty Jamaican-style seasoning blend and skewered with cubes of tangy mango and cool, crunchy cucumber. Add a touch of zippy pepper, and nobody will suffer from yet-another-shrimp-cocktail syndrome. ••• CARIBBEAN SHRIMP SKEWERS Start to finish: 30 minutes Makes 24 skewers 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon dry ginger 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 1/2 teaspoon salt 10 ounces peeled and deveined cooked medium shrimp 6 Peppadew peppers, quartered 2 mangoes, peeled and cubed 1/2 English cucumber, cut in 1/2 moon slices In a medium bowl, stir together the garlic powder, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger,

has maintained its cachet, not least because of a robust name protection campaign waged by French producers who have reached agreements with wine regions and governments around the world to stop referring to sparkling wines from elsewhere as Champagne. U.S. officials signed an agreement in 2006 to stop new producers from using the name. However, existing brands were grandfathered in, though they are required to put the origin on the label, i.e., “California” or “American.” French Champagne tends to be expensive, with some bottles commanding hundreds of dollars. But there are values to be found. Sbrocco advises looking at non-vintage blends offered by some of the big houses, including the Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label and Louis Roederer Brut Premier. Another emerging trend is “grower Champagnes,” made by smaller producers who mostly grow their own grapes, as opposed to the big Champagne houses that buy grapes from all over the region. One way to identify a grower Champagne is if it has the initials RM on the label, which stands for Recoltant-Manipulant, literally, harvester-handler. Sarah Elliott, certified sommelier and wine director at Commonwealth restaurant in San Francisco, sees grower Champagnes as producing more unique styles tied to smaller parcels, something that seems to be contributing to a trend of more people viewing Champagne as a good food wine, not just something you pop in celebration. At Commonwealth, chef Jason Fox is known for experimental dishes with unexpected flavor combinations or textures, like vinegar foam served with noriflecked potato chips, and Elliott finds that “bubbles are a lot of fun with his food.” Another change on the Champagne front is renewed interest in drier style wines that have had very little or no sugar added after the in-bottle fermentation. Some

examples are Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut and Pol Roger Pure, which Sbrocco would pair with “oysters or goat cheese or anything salty.” About that tattoo: It’s based on a glass of Billecart-Salmon rose (ro-ZAY), and was documented on the reality TV show LA Ink. Like Sbrocco, Osborn, the Wine.com expert, likes to drink pink, citing a Canard-Duchene Brut Rose on the website that sells for about $45 she says is “really fantastic.” True Champagne “has a taste unlike any other,” Osborn says. “It brings all of these wonderful assets together, beautiful packaging, beautiful to look at. I would rather have one beautiful glass of Champagne than a few glasses of just about anything else.”

Man with roving eye online needs meds to help him remain grounded Dear Abby: My marriage has been on the rocks since 2008, when I caught my husband talking to other girls online. He swore he would never do it again and I trusted him, only for it to happen again and again. We have a 2-year-old and I’m pregnant with our second child. He has now placed another ad online stating that he’s a single dad. I am torn. He keeps telling me he loves me and wants only me, and he doesn’t know what’s wrong with him. He is bipolar and not taking meds for it. He promised this time he will get help and try to get better. This is the fifth time he has placed

DEAR ABBY ADVICE an ad or chatted with other girls online. I don’t know if I should call it quits or keep trying. I love him and want us to be a family, but I don’t know how much more I can take. — Torn in California Dear Torn: Because you still love your husband, make his taking his medication a condition of your continuing the marriage. He needs to be willing to prove to you that he wants you to stay. If he won’t do that, then you will have to decide if this is the way you want to spend the rest of your life.

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

Dear Abby: I’m an independent, never-married woman who has been holding out for the right man. I finally found him in “Wayne,” a 49-year-old widower with two adult daughters. Wayne and I have been together for a year — living together for six months — but his daughters still refuse to meet me. Wayne says they need time because they lost their mother only two years ago. The rest of his family has been welcoming and sweet. I’m invited to some family functions, but allowed to attend only those that Wayne’s daughters won’t be at. I feel like I am able to share only part of his life and nothing will move forward until his children accept me. I love Wayne. I have searched my whole life for someone like him. How

CRYPTOQUOTE

long is long enough to wait? What if they never do? — On the Sidelines Dear On The Sidelines: You ARE sharing only part of Wayne’s life, and won’t be moving forward until his adult daughters accept you OR Wayne asserts himself. Wayne should be ashamed of himself. He should have introduced you to his daughters when you started living together. As his partner, you should not have been excluded from any family functions. As long as Wayne does nothing, nothing will change. Dear Abby: My husband and I have worked hard and spent our money carefully. We are almost ready to pay off our home. I would love to have

a “mortgage-burning” party, but I’m worried about showing off in this uncertain economy. Can we have this party, or should we just make our last payment and be quiet? — Thrilled in San Jose Dear Thrilled: Taking into consideration that many people have not been as fortunate as you in spite of the fact that they too worked hard and lived frugally, my advice is to have a quiet celebration with your husband and forgo the party. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed 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’ll finally have the chance to pursue an interest you’ve wanted to know more about for a long time now. You’ll enjoy getting lost in a wealth of new information. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll free your mind from material concerns. You’ll find this easy to do, especially when you’re in a relaxed environment surrounded by beauty. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can like and respect yourself even when you wish you would have acted differently or projected a different side of yourself. Your compassionate attitude will help you grow into the person you want to be. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Because you are so multifaceted, you can connect with people on many different subjects. You’ll have a knack for saying the thing that breaks the conversation wide open. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Remember that this is not just about being able to paint or write a story. Creativity is what helps you solve a problem or make a relationship strong and special. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s not OK to quit when the going gets tough. On the other hand, it’s silly to fight the currents of life by swimming upstream. Only you know when it’s right to change direction. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The way you see a situation may be causing you stress. Ask a trusted friend to give you another perspective on the matter. You’ll open your mind to a liberating viewpoint.

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Studies prove that regular exercise bolsters your reserves of selfcontrol. Even goals that are not fitness related will be more easily accomplished. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There’s a problem that keeps you from having what you dearly want. Truly, no one is to blame for this. You’ll make headway once you decide that you’re the one who will change. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Things of value will come easily. If you recognize the value and cherish these things, you’ll be among the few who do. Most people don’t see the value of something until they are deprived of it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). No time to stop and assess where you are. Keep going until you get a sense of pride and accomplishment. For you, this will come only at the very end of a project. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will be the astute one in your group, and they really need you to point out the little signs of improvement you see. You’ll note the incremental progress and inspire the others to continue forward. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 28). You promote harmony and cooperation wherever you go. The actions you take in January have unusual and unexpected results, making it a memorable time. February brings freedom, and you’ll adventure on through the spring. May features a meaningful commitment. Libra and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 21, 24, 30 and 14.

The proposed Francis E. Walter Hydroelectric Project would consist of the following: (1) a 600-foot-long, 16-footdiameter steel penstock attached to the existing outlet; (2) a concrete powerhouse 50 feet long by 75 feet wide; (3) two 4.5megawatt (MW) generators for a total installed capacity of 9.0 MW; (4) a tailrace channel to direct flow back to the Lehigh River; (5) a proposed 0.5-mile-long, 12.4kilovolt transmission line interconnecting with an existing Pennsylvania Power and Light Corporation distribution line; and (6) appurtenant facilities. The estimated annual generation of the project would be 26.0 gigawatt-hours.
