The Times Leader



By PATRICK J. McDONNELL Los Angeles Times


BEIRUT -- The head of Lebanon’s powerful Hezbollah movement appeared Monday at a massive rally assailing the United States and warning that broadcast of a film produced in California mocking Islam could have grave consequences. “America must understand that


releasing the entire film will have dangerous, very dangerous repercussions around the world,” an emotional Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah’s secretary-general, told supporters gathered in a Beirut suburb. The appearance suggested that Hezbollah, an influential political and military force in Lebanon, is determined to place itself in the vanguard of global Muslim outrage against the incendiary film. The gathering was among a string of demonstrations in Muslim communities from Tunis to Jakarta after the release on the Inter-

net of a trailer for the amateur, privately produced film, which ridicules the Prophet Muhammad and the Islamic faith. The day’s protests in South Asia turned violent and left at least one person dead. Tens of thousands of pro-Hezbollah supporters attended the rally in Beirut’s Dahiyeh suburb, a stronghold where the group has the ability to stage highly disciplined actions. The gathering was boisterous but peaceful and occurred far away from the heavily See FILM, Page 10A

WHITE SOX 5 TIGERS 4 RED SOX 5 RAYS 2 NHL-LEVEL PLAYERS MAY BE AHL-BOUND Over the weekend the Pittsburgh Penguins sent 23 players to WilkesBarre/Scranton and more could be on the way if they are able to negotiate an AHL contract with the team. Players who were either on last season’s Clear Day roster, finished the season with an AHL team or played in the AHL postseason are eligible to ink contracts allowing them to play in the league while the NHL is in a lockout. Such a contract would be void if the NHL resumes play, allowing those players to go back up. Page 1B

Carolee Medico Olenginski’s lawyer, Sam Stretton, sent Luzerne County Manager Robert Lawton a letter Monday urging him to reconsider her recent dismissal. Stretton, of West Chester, hinted at age discrimination because Lawton assigned Prothonotary Deputy Art Bobbouine to oversee dayto-day operations in the office, which handles civil court records. Lawton asked Medico Olenginski to handle a special project streamlining county paper and computerized records. “There also appears to be a form of discrimination in Medico terms of age. Ms. Medico OleOlenginski nginski is 68. You replaced her with someone who is 36 years of age,” Stretton wrote, noting his client was “wellqualified.” Stretton said he “found it very distasteful” that she was replaced by Bobbouine. He said Medico Olenginski Lawton “trained and groomed” Bobbouine, shifted money in her budget to keep him under home rule and encouraged him to retake the bar exam. “It is very odd that he would act behind her back and undermine her authority with you, but that is an issue for another day,” he wrote. Bobbouine could not be reached for comment Monday evening. Lawton declined comment on Stretton’s letter. Lawton dismissed Medico Olenginski on Friday, though she will continue to be paid a $36,562 salary through 2013 when her elected term expires. See DISMISSAL, Page 10A

Buyer learns free-and-clear tax sales have pitfalls By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES


09815 10011

Hazleton resident Dee Deakos said she lined up a buyer for a vacant Hazleton lot she bought at a back-tax auction last year, but the purchaser backed out because the property title wasn’t clean. She researched the auction paperwork because outstanding mortgages and liens were supposed to be forgiven at the free-

and-clear auction. Deakos said the prior owner and another person who financed the mortgage were never Deakos properly notified of the auction as required. Deakos said she found similar missing notifications on three

other properties she bought at auction. She’s attempting to straighten out two on her own by contacting lien holders to negotiate resolutions and has filed legal action trying to force the county’s tax claim operator to refund her money on the remaining two.

“The properties were supposed to be free and clear. They lied, plain and simple,” said Deakos, who purchased the properties through her business, Pharmahouse. John Rodgers, owner of Northeast Revenue Service LLC, the county’s tax-claim operator, said his company painstakingly attempts to identify and notify all lien holders to the extent re-

quired by law, but some may fall through the cracks. Rodgers said he advised Deakos she must file court action if she’s seeking a refund, because a sale can’t be reversed without a court order. A judge will determine if Northeast Revenue’s service to lien holders was sufficient, he said. See DEAKOS, Page 10A





Wind, not rain, expected to be main problem By EDWARD LEWIS

Solomon Creek in Ashley as well as other brooks in the area with dry creek beds will likely come alive today as rain is expected through Wednesday afternoon. The heaviest rain is expected to fall Tuesday night. But, it’s not the rain that has sparked concern from the National Weather Service. A high-wind watch was issued for most of Northeastern Pennsylvania with sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph gusting to 50 to 60 mph that may cause downed trees and power failures. “In localized areas, winds from the storms can be strong enough to break off tree limbs and cause power outages,” said Alex Sosnowski, expert senior meteorologist for “In some cases, trees could be toppled and more significant power damage is possible. Some locations may be blasted by small hail as well.” Creeks and streams have

been running low -- or if at all -from a lack of rain this year. Solomon Creek has been bone dry showing its rocky bed for at least a month. “(National Weather Service) is saying 1 to 3 inches; we may have some urban and small stream problems but nothing of significance,” Luzerne County Emergency Management Coordinator Steve Bekanich said. The rainfall total measured at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport since Jan. 1 is 24.6 inches, nearly 2.5 inches below normal for this time of year, according to the National Weather Service in Binghamton, N.Y. This time last year, more than 45 inches of rain had fallen. There is a slight chance for severe thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon and night. Weather watches and warnings will likely be posted by NWS as the storm is expected to intensify. The rain will not have an impact on the Susquehanna River


WILKES-BARRE – A former county sheriff deputy charged with assaulting a woman who had been dating her former girlfriend pleaded no contest Monday to a related charge and was sentenced to 18 months probation. Jennifer M. Roberts, 34, of Wilkes-Barre Township, entered the plea to a charge of simple assault and was sentenced by Luzerne County Judge Joseph Sklarosky on the day she was scheduled to stand trial. “I apologize to the court for being here,” Roberts told Sklarosky before being sentenced. A longtime sheriff deputy, Roberts was terminated from her job in August 2011 after the July 2011 incident involving Sheila Sult of Wilkes-Barre. “It’s a difficult situation. She loved her job, it meant everything to her,” Roberts’ attorney, Peter Paul Olszewski Jr., told Sklarosky Monday. “You will never see her in court ever again.” Olszewski said his client dutifully served the residents of Luzerne County and understands the consequences she faces. “I’ve known her personally … and professionally … for a number of years,” Olszewski said, noting he believes Roberts to be a good person who faced charges of burglary, simple assault, aggravated assault and


harassment because of a domestic situation. Senior Deputy Attorney General George Zaiser prosecuted

the case. According to court papers, the assault occurred after Mary Jean Farrell, Roberts’ former girlfriend, and Roberts “exchanged words” outside the Wyoming Valley Mall on July 21. Police then responded to a 911 hangup call at Sult’s Regent Street home on July 22 shortly after midnight. Sult said she posted some things about the encounter on Facebook, and Roberts became aware of the postings and called Farrell. Sult said Farrell went to her house and pleaded with her to take the postings down, but she refused and asked Farrell to leave. Police said Roberts arrived and when Sult started to open the door, Roberts pushed it open and attacked Sult. Sult testified at an October preliminary hearing she suffered a herniated disk in her neck that requires surgery, swollen eyes and bruises on her head. Attorney William Ruzzo, who represented Sult at Monday’s hearing, said his client was in agreement with Roberts’ no-contest plea and had no objection to a probationary sentence. Roberts is to have no contact with Sult, Sklarosky said, must undergo a drug-and-alcohol evaluation and complete 25 hours of community service.

More work done to secure former landmark hotel after Facebook photo posted. By BILL O’BOYLE

WILKES-BARRE – Simply boarding up open areas on the Hotel Sterling is not keeping people out, and one man said Monday he is concerned somebody will get hurt in the condemned former landmark. Brian Shiner of Kingston often attends Luzerne County Council meetings and has been monitoring the dilapidated building on River Street. He said recent repairs have not fixed the problem. He pointed out a large hole where he said people are still getting into the building that is scheduled for demolition in the near future. “I’m concerned about the safety of anyone who enters the building,” he said. “What are CityVest and Wilkes-Barre city waiting for? Does somebody have to get hurt or killed before the building is secured?” Last week, Shiner provided a photograph he states showed five young people standing on the roof of the Sterling. Shiner said adults are also getting into the building. Refuge for homeless On a recent tour of the interior of the Sterling, there were sleeping bags and mattresses indicating that homeless people have been using it for refuge. With temperatures starting to drop, Shiner is concerned more people will be using the building for shelter. The city boarded up a couple of entry ways on Friday, and Drew McLaughlin, administra-

tive coordinator, said more work was done Monday. “We had an employee down first thing (Monday) morning at 7 a.m.,” he said. “A worker did about three hours worth of work to secure possible points of entry.” The work was done in an alley way between the Sterling and the annex building. Shiner said a rope hangs from a large open second floor window right above where the city worker was working. About 50 feet from where the worker was, Shiner found another gaping hole punched in the sheetrock. It measures about 3 by 4 feet, and Shiner said it has been open since Saturday. “The city worker never saw the hole,” Shiner said. “And he left the rope hanging. It would be easy for someone to grab the rope and pull themselves up and through the window.” Shiner said a fence should be erected to keep people out.

“What’s it going to take to secure this building?” Shiner asked. “A couple hundred dollars?” McLaughlin said the city “has made every attempt” to secure the building, which the city condemned a year ago after an engineer determined flood water imperiled it structural integrity. “People enter that building at their own risk,” he said. “The city is not the owner and has no legal liability from individuals who break the law and enter the building.” Shiner noted that the city has not posted any “No Trespassing” signs. The city received bids for the demolition of the former hotel, with the lowest nearly $500,000. The city has asked the county to share the cost of demolition. The nonprofit CityVest organization owns the building. Attempts to contact a CityVest representative were unsuccessful.

Ex-Berwick cop charged with stealing heroin Times Leader staff

BERWICK -- A former borough police officer was charged with stealing heroin packets from the police station. Christian Wilson, 29, of Berwick, was arraigned Friday on four counts of theft and a single count of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on $10,000 unsecured bail. The charges were filed by the state Office of Attorney General. According to a police news release: Members of the borough police department’s Special Operations Group in March gathered information that Wilson was injecting heroin.

During the investigation, Chief Kenneth Strish reviewed the police station’s video surveillance system, which allegedly recorded Wilson taking a package of syringes that were collected as evidence from a methamphetamine lab. State agents questioned Wilson on July 16, when he allegedly admitted he had been fighting a heroin addiction for two years. Wilson said he took the syringes to inject heroin, according to the news release. Wilson granted agents consent to search his residence on Monroe Street, where, according to the news release, a Berwick police evidence envelope was found empty. Police said the envelope should

have contained 831 heroin packets. Wilson allegedly admitted he took the envelope from an officer’s desk and used all 831 heroin packets himself. Police said the envelope was left unsecured in an officer’s desk after it was picked up from a state police crime lab where the heroin packets were examined. The officer responsible for leaving the envelope with heroin packets unsecured in a desk drawer violated Berwick Police Department policy and has been disciplined. Wilson resigned from the force on July 16. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on Sept. 24.

HARRISBURG – No player matched all five winning numbers drawn in Monday’s “Pennsylvania Cash 5” game, so the jackpot will be worth $1 million. Lottery officials said 130 players matched four numbers and won $309 each; 4,890 players matched three numbers and won $13.50 each; and 61,346 players matched two numbers and won $1 each. • Thursday’s “Pennsylvania Match 6 Lotto” jackpot will be worth at least $550,000 because no player holds a ticket with one row that matches all six winning numbers drawn in Monday’s game.

Allabaugh moved to jail

William Allabaugh, the man police allege shot and killed one man and critically injured another at a Plymouth bar on Sept. 9, has been transferred to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility. A prison official said Allabaugh was transferred there from a hospital on Monday afternoon and was in medical Allabaugh isolation on Monday night. Police say Mark Ktytor shot Allabaugh outside the bar in self-defense after Allabaugh shot Stephen Hollman in the head, critically injuring him inside the bar, and then shot to death Scott Luzetsky outside the bar. Allabaugh was arraigned at his hospital bed on Wednesday on charges of criminal homicide and criminal attempt to commit homicide.



Arena restaurant irks some eateries In-house facility is planned for Mohegan Sun facility. By ANDREW M. SEDER

WILKES-BARRE TWP. – Mohegan Sun Arena’s plans to open an in-house restaurant have some nearby eateries predicting their profits will be sliced.

Armand Mascioli, one of the owners of Grotto Pizza, which has a restaurant less than a mile from the arena, said there’s no doubt the facility has been good for his business and dozens of others. But when he heard the plans for a 20,000-square-foot addition to be built to offer dining options to people attending events at the arena, his heart

sunk. “It’s going to be a major impact to all of the local restaurants, not just us,” Mascioli said. His was one of the few restaurants within a mile of the arena that was established long before the venue was built 13 years ago. He said others have made huge investments opening restaurants knowing that

the arena did not have much by way of restaurants or bars to attract fans pre and post event. “A lot of people built those restaurants around that opportunity and made large investments,” Mascioli said. While he appreciates what the arena has done for the area, he said he wishes it wasn’t going this route. “The arena’s been very good

Fabled Ringling Bros circus offers kids a treat


WILKES-BARRE – Teachers might have a harder time keeping children’s attention these days, given the proliferation of video games and fast-paced TV shows, but a couple of clowns had no problem with that on Monday. With their colorful costumes, witty banter and exaggerated actions, Cherie and Dave, of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, captivated the interest of more than 50 children seated cross-legged on the floor of the Wilkes-Barre Family YMCA

1-4. The performers said their appearances are much more than just a tried and true way to market the circus. “This is a way of Ringling Brothers giving back to the communities in which we perform each and every year,” Dave said. “We realize that not everybody’s going to … be able to buy a ticket,” Cherie added. “So it’s a way of … bringing the circus to people who might not get to go.” Ticket prices range from $27.50 to

gymnasium for the half-hour show. “This is our sixth year as ambassadors of laughter,” Cherie said. “We come about a month ahead of the circus and we go to schools, libraries, YMCAs, hospitals, cheering everybody we can.” The clowns appeared at the Y as well as at the Wyoming Valley Children’s Association in Forty Fort, Downtown Arts in Wilkes-Barre and the West Pittston Library as a community service in advance of the circus’ Barnum Bash show at Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre Township Nov.

Another teaching honor goes to WVW’s Nicholas By MARK GUYDISH

KINGSTON – Already arguably Luzerne County’s most widely honored teacher, Leslie Nicholas has nabbed another accolade, and this one comes with a $10,000 check he can spend as he chooses. Wyoming Valley West School District Superintendent Chuck Suppon confirmed Monday that Nicholas, currently a middle school teacher, is one of the semifinalists for an annual award offered jointly by the Horace Mann Company and the National Education Foundation. The semifinalists get the $10,000, with one of them landing another $25,000 check when the finalist is announced.

“These awards are few and far between,” Suppon said Monday. “It speaks volumes about the kind of teacher he is and the impact he has on the students.” Nicholas Nicholas did not respond to an email late Monday afternoon. Suppon said the district is planning a small formal ceremony acknowledging the accomplishment, probably on Wednesday. Nicholas has received numerous state and national awards. In 2009 he was one of five finalists in the Ron Clark Academy

Greater American Teacher Award created by Disney American Teacher of the Year Ron Clark when Disney stopped sponsoring that award. Nicholas was Pennsylvania Journalism Teacher of the Year in 2002, Pennsylvania teacher of the year in 2004, a Disney Teacher honoree in 2005, University of Pennsylvania Educator of the Year in 2005, and 2009 recipient of the First Freedom Award given nationally for teaching and defending the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. “That’s the nicest thing about any of the awards that I’ve received,” Nicholas said in a 2009 interview. “That I’ve been nominated by my students.”

WILKES-BARRE – Two search warrants filed Monday by Luzerne County detectives detail items seized from the home of a Kingston man charged last week with taking money from a Hazleton attorney, as well as details surrounding allegations from a second victim who alleges nearly $20,000 was taken. David A. Rigle, 56, a former physician who now is unlicensed, was arraigned last week on two counts of theft by deception after, investigators Rigle say, he bilked a Hazleton attorney out of $6,5000 for an expert medical report. The two search warrants outline several items seized from Rigle’s home on Sept. 11, including several computers, boxes of files, cellphones and a check register, after investigators received information from Michael Phillips, who alleged he was seeking a medical expert opinion from Rigle in a medical malpractice case and lost $20,000. No charges have been filed in that case, but an affidavit that accompanied the two search warrants outlines specifics. According to the affidavit filed by Luzerne County detectives, in August the office was contacted by Phillips, who said his mother, Phyllis Phillips, passed away a few weeks before, after undergoing surgery at a New York hospital. Phillips told detectives he believed his mother died as a result of mistakes made by doctors while she was being treated at Ellis Hospital in New York. In September 2011, Phillips said he contacted an attorney in Troy, N.Y. to have the case evaluated for a potential medical malpractice lawsuit. An attorney advised Phillips he would have to obtain an independent medical review on his mother’s medical records in order to proceed with a civil suit. The attorney suggested two doctors in Luzerne County: Rigle and his sister, Deborah McMenamin. Phillips then handed over documents relating to his mother’s case, See RIGLE, Page 4A

That sort of a local eatery entering a sports venue model was unsuccessful in one case. Bo Brothers, a Wyoming-based pizza, wings and barbecue restaurant, operated inside PNC Field in Moosic but pulled out in less than a year, citing a lack of business on days when the Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre Yankees weren’t playing a home game and in the offseason. Efforts to reach Bo Brothers’ owner James Ruby to see if he would have an interest in opening an arena location, were unsuccessful Monday.

Rich Jeffers, a corporate spokesman for Darden Restaurants, which owns Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Longhorn Steakhouse and other chain restaurants, said he wasn’t sure what impact an arena eatery would have on business, but he praised the arena as a business generator. “It generates traffic and that’s good for business,” Jeffers said.

Of all the local food operators, Metz would seem to have an inside track on having interest in operating a restaurant inside the arena. However, Maureen Gallagher, Metz’s vice president of marketing, had no comment Monday and said the person in the company who could talk about the arena restaurant was unavailable for comment. asked for billing records, timesheets, a face-to-face meeting to review the file and a deadline for completion in relation to the case. He said Rigle and McMenamin failed to provide anything to him. On Aug. 31, Phillips said he was contacted to make another additional payment of $5,000, and Phillips advised Rigle and McMenamin he did not have the money to pay them and refused to make any further payments. Rigle later allegedly indicated that if Phillips did not send the money, he would “incinerate” his mother’s medical records.

comes a year after Congress passed legislation that requires nearly $500 billion in defense cuts over 10 years beginning on Jan. 2. “I think Pennsylvania needs to be taking a look at the issues themselves and we need to be well represented,” Corbett said at a news conference at the 28th Division Infantry headquarters in Harrisburg. Part of the commission’s focus

will be to add to the tasks carried out by the state’s installations by marketing geographical value or operational efficiency, Corbett and the lawmakers said. One of the installations that the commission will fight hard to protect is the Tobyhanna Army Depot in Monroe County, Northeast Pennsylvania’s largest employer with 5,500 workers. “The wide-ranging impact and value of Tobyhanna Army Depot to Northeastern Pennsylvania and to our regional economy is immeasurable,” Blake

said. In addition to Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania’s major military installations include the Carlisle Barracks where the U.S. Army War College is housed, Letterkenny Army Depot in southcentral Pennsylvania and a Naval support depot in suburban Harrisburg. In two previous rounds of base closures, Pennsylvania lost the Philadelphia Navy shipyard and the Willow Grove Naval Air Station Base in suburban Philadelphia.


head, everybody laughs,” Dave piped in. There was definitely some slapstick to see, and some of it involved young audience members who volunteered. A 5-yearold boy named D’Vonte stood smiling as the clowns tossed juggling clubs back and forth to each other in front of and behind him, and 4-year-old McKayleigh Lokuta helped with magic tricks involving a wily magic handkerchief and a bunny in a top hat. Cherie said those who attend the circus can get an up-close experience at an All-Star Pre-Show Party before every performance. “Families can come an hour early and meet the performers on the arena floor, take a sneak peek backstage, try their hand at balancing peacock feathers, try on costumes and even enter to win an elephant footprint. And it’s free with their ticket. It’s pretty cool (and) really interactive,” Cherie said.

Trisch Madaya, child care coordinator at the Y, said most of the children in the after-school, pre-school and day care programs are there on scholarships. “So for a lot of the children who are in front of us, (attending the circus is) an experience they wouldn’t have because of the cost. But (Cherie and Dave) gave out discount coupons, so maybe they’ll get to see the circus after all,” Mayada said. They gave out stickers and rubber clown noses, too. Mayada was impressed with the clowns’ ability to hold the attention of so many children for 30 minutes straight. “I was surprised how they were all mesmerized by it, especially given that we had some

Romney shifts to policy in campaign


Obama announces new trade enforcement action against China. By JULIE PACE and NEDRA PICKLER Associated Press


Royal couple arrive in style

Britain’s Prince William and his wife, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, arrive on Monday in Tavanipupu, Solomon Islands, on a traditional war canoe, as the royal couple continue their royal tour.

CINCINNATI — Appealing to Rust Belt voters, President Barack Obama announced a new trade enforcement action against China on Monday, while Republican challenger Mitt Romney planned a greater emphasis on policy details that distinguish him from Obama to stop the incumbent’s election momentum. Romney’s shift comes as Republicans openly fret about the state of their nominee’s campaign and press him to give voters a clearer sense of how he would govern. In newly published polls, Romney has lost the edge he held over Oba-

ma as the candidate better able to handle the federal budget deficit and taxes. Romney pollster Neil Newhouse attributed Obama’s gains to the bump the president received overall after the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina this month. But on taxes, Newhouse acknowledged Romney’s need to do more to distinguish his plans. “I’m not sure that voters really understand the differences between the plans Mitt Romney has and Obama has,” Newhouse said. “And I think that’s one thing we’re committed to trying to do in moving forward is defining the differences between the two candidates on taxes.” One recent line of criticism from Romney appears to have brought a quick response from Obama. The White House

Iran blasts nuke agency

nuclear chief said Monday that I ran’s “terrorists and saboteurs” might

have infiltrated the International Atomic Energy Agency in an effort to derail his nation’s atomic program. It was Tehran’s harshest attack on the integrity of the U.N. organization and its investigation of allegations that Iran is striving to make nuclear arms. Fereydoun Abbasi also rebuked the United States in comments to the IAEA’s 155-nation general conference, reflecting Iran’s determination to continue defying international pressure aimed at curbing its nuclear program and nudging it toward cooperation with the IAEA inspection. Revealing what he said were two sabotage attempts on his country’s nuclear program, he challenged the perpetrators to launch new attacks, saying his country is determined to learn how to protect its interests through such assaults.

Syrian missiles hit Lebanon Missiles fired by Syrian warplanes hit Lebanese territory Monday in one of the most serious cross-border violations since Syria’s crisis began 18 months ago, security officials in Beirut and Lebanese state media said. The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with regulations, said four missiles fired by two Syrian jets hit a rugged and remote area on the edge of the Lebanese border town of Arsal. No casualties were immediately reported. On the diplomatic front, Egypt’s President Mohammed Morsi held talks with the Turkish foreign minister on the Syrian crisis ahead of a meeting of regional heavyweights seeking ways to end the country’s civil war. NEW YORK

Occupy protesters arrested About a dozen Occupy Wall Street protesters have been arrested during a march near the New York Stock Exchange on the anniversary of the grassroots movement. A couple hundred protesters participated in the march Monday morning. Protesters who sat on the sidewalk were arrested. Earlier, they gathered across the street from Zuccotti Park, the site of the movement’s birth. But there was no sign of a planned “people’s wall” on the streets surrounding the stock exchange. Instead, protesters held a small meeting where they talked about the ills of Wall Street and corporate greed. On Saturday, at least a dozen protesters were arrested as some 300 people observed the anniversary. CHICAGO

Mayor fumes at teachers Mayor Rahm Emanuel asked a state court Monday to force Chicago school teachers back to work and end a weeklong strike he calls illegal. The union immediately condemned the move as an act of vindictiveness by a “bullying” mayor. Emanuel spokeswoman Sarah Hamilton said city attorneys filed a request in the Cook County Circuit Court to force Chicago Teachers Union members off the picket line and back into classrooms. The request argues that the labor action is illegal because state law bars the union from striking on anything but economic issues, and that the work stoppage is focused instead on such issues as evaluations, layoffs and recall rights.

NATO scales back Afghan partnering after attacks


By DEB RIECHMANN Associated Press

ABUL, Afghanistan — NATO said Monday it has scaled back operations with Afghan soldiers and policemen to lower the risk of insider attacks and reduce local tensions over an antiIslam video that prompted protests in Afghanistan.

It’s the second order that curbs contact between foreign troops and their Afghan partners, undermining the mantra that both sides are fighting the Taliban “shoulder to shoulder.” The directive could jeopardize the U.S.-led coalition’s key goal to get Afghan forces ready to take over security from foreign forces by the end of 2014 — just 27 months from now. Until now, coalition troops routinely conducted operations such as patrolling or manning outposts with their Afghan counterparts. Under the new rules issued on Sunday by Lt. Gen. James Terry, such operations are no longer routine and require the approval of the regional commander. Insider attacks have spiked in recent months. So far this year, 51international troops have been killed by Afghan forces or militants wearing their uniforms — a development that has fractured the trust between NATO troops and their Afghan allies. The disturbing trend comes as Afghans chanting “Death to America” have staged several recent protests against an anti-Islam film produced in the U.S. The film also sparked demonstrations in other nations. A protest in Kabul over the film that mocks the Prophet Muhammad turned violent Monday, with hundreds of men torching tires, cars and shipping containers and lobbing rocks at a U.S. base on the edge of the capital. More than 20 police officers were injured by rocks before the protesters were finally dispersed by officers shooting in the air, officials said. “Recent events outside of and inside Afghanistan related

to the ‘Innocence of Muslims’ video, plus the conduct of recent insider attacks, have given cause for ISAF troops to exercise increased vigilance and carefully review all activities and interactionswiththelocalpopulation,”saidcoalitionspokesman Jamie Graybeal. Earlier this month, the U.S. military stopped training about 1,000 members of the Afghan Local Police, a controversial network of village-defense units that is growing but remains a fraction of the country’s army and police force, which will soon be 352,000 strong. The coalition downplayed the impact of the directive, saying international forces had not stopped partnering and advisingAfghanforces.Coalitionofficialssaidthedirectivewas given at the recommendation of — and in conjunction with —key Afghan leaders. U.S.-led coalition companies remain partnered with Afghan units, but have changed the way they conduct their daily partnering operations, the coalition said. “In the past, elements of a company routinely conducted operations — like patrolling or manning an outpost — with elements of the Afghan battalion,” the coalition said.

WASHINGTON — More older drivers are on the road than ever before, and an Associated Press review found they face a hodgepodge of state licensing rules that reflect scientific uncertainty and public angst over a growing question: How can we tell if it’s time to give up the keys? Thirty states plus the District of Columbia have some sort of olderage requirement for driver’s licenses, ranging from more vision testing to making seniors renew their licenses more frequently than younger people. At what age? That’s literally all over the map. Maryland starts eye exams at 40. Shorter license renewals kick in anywhere from age 59 in Georgia to 85 in Texas. The issue attracted new attention when a 100-year-old driver backed over a group of schoolchildren in Los Angeles late last month. That’s a rarity, but with an imminent surge in senior drivers, the federal government is proposing that all states take steps to address what the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration calls “the real and growing problem of older driver safety.” Here’s the conundrum: “Birthdays don’t kill. Health conditions do,” said Joseph Coughlin, head of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s AgeLab, which develops technologies to help older people stay active. Healthy older drivers aren’t necessarily less safe than younger ones, Coughlin points out. But many older people have health issues that can impair driving, from arthritis to dementia, from slower reflexes to the use of multiple medications. There’s no easy screening tool that licensing authorities can use to spot people with subtle health risks. So some states use birthdays as a proxy for more scrutiny instead. Older drivers don’t crash as often as younger ones. But they also drive less. About 60 percent of seniors voluntarily cut back, avoiding nighttime driving or interstates or bad weather, said David Eby of the University of Michigan’s Center for Advancing Safe Transportation throughout the Lifespan. Measure by miles driven, however, and the crash rate of older drivers begins to climb in the 70s, with a sharper jump at age 80, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Only teens and 20-somethings do worse.

Sandusky to be sentenced for child sexual abuse Oct. 9 By MICHAEL RUBINKAM Associated Press

There’s little doubt that Jerry Sandusky faces a long prison sentence. In a few weeks, he’ll find out how just how long. A judge announced Monday he will sentence Sandusky on Oct. 9, nearly four months after the retired assistant football coach was convicted in the child molestation scandal that brought shame to Penn State. Sandusky was convicted in June of 45 counts of sex abuse involving 10 boys. Prosecutors said some of the assaults took place on the Penn State campus.


Given his age and the serious nature of the crimes, Sandusky is likely to receive a sentence that will keep the 68-year-old in prison for life. He is jailed pending sentencing and maintains

his innocence. Judge John Cleland scheduled a hearing for 9 a.m. at the courthouse in Bellefonte to determine if Sandusky should be classified as a sexually violent predator, a designation that subjects a convict

to intense reporting requirements upon release. A decision is expected to have little practical effect since he stands to die in prison. Sandusky will be sentenced immediately afterward. Tom Kline, a lawyer representing a young man who testified during Sandusky’s trial that he was fondled in a school shower in 2001, said Monday he expects his client either to testify at the sentencing hearing or supply a statement to the court. Nils Frederiksen, a spokesman in the Attorney General’s Office, said prosecu-

tors will make a sentencing recommendation to the judge. Sandusky’s attorney, Joe Amendola, did not immediately return a phone call and email seeking comment. Meanwhile, defense lawyers for two former Penn State administrators asked a Dauphin County judge on Monday to split the criminal cases against former athletic director Tim Curley and retired vice president Gary Schultz. They are charged with failing to report suspected child abuse and lying to a grand jury. They have pleaded not guilty. Their trial is set for January.

Dallas OKs Tempers flare at Lehman Twp. over ATV noise and lack of police mentoring program By SUSAN DENNEY Times Leader Correspondent

By JON O’CONNELL Times Leader Correspondent

DALLAS TWP. – School Board President Catherine Wega called it a great part of the schools’ curriculum, referring to a grade-encompassing career awareness program that is to begin its pilot in October, school officials say. The Dallas School Board on Monday adopted the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s career mentoring program as an extension of the district’s curriculum. The program is based on area business professionals volunteering as mentors to work with students, giving them early exposure to what they might find upon entering the work force. The program is to be implemented into the district’s curriculum in three phases, with the first two conducted in-house. Volunteers are to speak during assemblies and career fairs will allow students to explore the area’s business opportunities on their own. At voting time, board member Fred Parry asked about background checks as the program’s phase three has students leaving the campus for job shadowing. He expressed concern and was moved to vote no because the district does not have a current policy addressing this career awareness program’s volunteers, nothing requiring them to undergo criminal background checks before interacting with students. He said he was most concerned with the job-shadowing element. After discussion with solicitor Ben Jones, the board concluded that adopting the new program to the curriculum is the first step and setting up liability controls would be addressed after. Board member Maureen Matiska said school policy and curriculum are two separate items and do not need to be considered in the same vote.

LEHMAN TWP. -- The township board of supervisors began in a somber mood Monday night because of the death of Township Secretary Jon Rogers last Saturday. But tempers flared as two different problems brought a large number of residents to the

council meeting. One resident asked why she had been cited by the township. Board President David Sutton said there had been several complaints at the last meeting about noise coming from recreational ATV use on her property. He said this was a zoning violation, not a police matter and that she had been cited by the

zoning officer. Several residents were upset over her citation and questioned how ATVs could be used in the township. Sutton said a new ordinance that will clearly define use of ATVs in the township is being proposed. Supervisor Ray Iwanowski said this was in response to

many complaints about ATV use. “It’s been brewing, brewing, brewing,” he said. Also, residents from the Lake Silkworth section of the township complained about a lack of police presence from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. They cited a number of incidents during those hours. One resident said many of

the residents were unaware that the township police department does not cover a third shift. She was told that after 11 p.m., all 911 calls are covered by the state police. “We tried to keep police officers on duty 24 /7. Because of cost and expense we had to cut back on services,” Iwanowski said.

Charter picks engineer for construction

By JANINE UNGVARSKY Times Leader Correspondent

BEAR CREEK TWP. -- Just weeks after acquiring a plot of land on Route115 as a location for a new school building, the Bear Creek Community Charter School board of trustees took another step forward on the project by choosing a pre-construction engineer. The board voted unanimously Monday to hire Bob Becker of NEPA Engineering to handle the requests for proposals and other facets of the pre-construction phase of the program. Becker will be paid on an hourly basis, up to a maximum of $9,100. Citing urgent need, the board also voted unanimously to authorize the Bear Creek Foundation to award the bid for a new boiler for the existing school to the lowest qualified bidder. The boiler needs immediate replacement before cooler weather sets in, the board said in making the emergency authorization. In other business, the board: • Approved the hiring of Brooke Young as enrichment paraprofessional for 25 hours per week at $12.50 per hour • Reviewed the results of a parent satisfaction survey that had 55 percent of parents responding, with 98 percent saying they would recommend the school to others, 94 percent stating they feel their kids are safe, and 87 percent reporting that they feel their children are challenged. • Discussed a teacher mentoring program and approved sending two administrators and three teachers to a five-session course designed to train them to be coaches and mentors to their fellow teachers.

What’s your plan when disaster hits?


N BASIC SURVIVAL classes, you’ll often hear about the “Rule of 3s” – that a person can stay alive for about three days without water, three weeks without food. No sweat, right? After all, if you are like many Northeastern Pennsylvania residents, you’re accustomed to passing a convenience store on every corner and having the comfort of a cellphone that seemingly connects you to the entire world. But, during September – touted as National Preparedness Month – consider what could happen during a true calamity. If a blizzard, for instance, caused a widespread power outage and suspended highway travel in Luzerne County, does your cupboard contain enough peanut butter (or other rations) to keep you nourished? Do you have a flashlight? With working batteries? If compelled to leave your home because of a natural or manmade disaster, would you remember to take your insurance policy, your prescription medication? In short: Will you be ready when things go wrong? The question merits careful consideration by you, your neighbors and everyone who lives in this region, where the flood-prone Susquehanna River as recently as 12 months ago ripped holes through homes’ foundations and whole communities, briefly threatening to top the Wyoming Valley’s levees and do monumental damage.

Excessive rain and snow, of course, account for only some of Luzerne County’s potential problems.

Need we mention the nuclear power plant? Promoters of National Preparedness Month don’t aim to alarm. Instead, they want you to take common-sense precautions – such as packing a disaster supply kit and devising a family emergency plan – that can make the difference between suffering the full brunt of a “calamity” or merely experiencing a “close call.” Do your part today.

Shrinking police departments put residents at risk IN THE wake of recent violence in Plymouth, residents expressed dismay over the perceived lack of borough police resources and the resulting threat to public safety. Their concern should come as no surprise. The Pennsylvania Economy League sounded the warning as recently as 2010 concerning the evaporation of borough police forces in Luzerne County that places residents at higher risk. A joint study with the Institute for Public Policy & Economic Development found that full-time borough police forces were being gutted for financial reasons. Communities increasingly are relying on part-time officers or the state police. Quality coverage suffers as a result. The study advocated the creation of regional police forces as a solution, but overcoming political obstacles to change have so far made that goal elusive. While Luzerne County cities have largely maintained their full-time police forces since the 1970s and second-class townships have increased their full-time officers to reflect population growth, the same cannot be said of boroughs. In 1972, 57.5 percent of police officers in Luzerne County’s boroughs were full-time. By 2006, the number of full-time officers had dropped to 31.6 percent. The result is police departments with inadequate backup, training, preventive patrols or the ability to follow through on investigations. Genuine, round-the-clock police coverage is


GERALD CROSS scaled back or nonexistent. The result: Residents at a Plymouth Borough Council meeting held shortly after a recent shooting complained about slow police response times. The situation is particularly troubling given the influence that higher rates of poverty and unemployment – both of which have increased in Luzerne County – have on crime. Regional drug possession crimes spiked 200 percent from 2000 to 2006 and during the same period drug manufacturing crimes were up 155 percent. Small police departments primarily staffed with part-time officers are illequipped to deal with the ramifications. Larger regional departments made up of full-time officers have more resources for investigation and training – including specialized training – that lead to more arrests. Regional forces also have the quantity and quality of officers necessary to ensure a community has adequate coverage if a number of incidents occur at once. In Plymouth, the police department has shrunk from 12 full-time and two part-time officers in 1972 to four full-time and several part-time officers today. Meanwhile, the borough faces the challenges of a declining population of taxpayers, empty storefronts, changing demographics, a high percentage

of renters and a 24 percent poverty rate. No one expects a small borough to have the same resources as a large city, which is why a regional approach to police services is critical. The Pennsylvania Economy League estimates that a regional force would have cost Plymouth approximately the same yearly cost but would have resulted in a more professional complement better able to handle the new economic and social realities that strain resources. Plymouth is not alone. Communities at all levels of the socio-economic spectrum in Northeastern Pennsylvania are sacrificing full-time police forces to budget constraints, leaving residents with substandard coverage that often fails to provide a rapid response, investigation and arrest when crimes occur. It is past time for municipal leaders to put aside differences that have hampered the creation of regionalized police forces. Area residents deserve and should demand better of their local governments. Gerald Cross is executive director of the Pennsylvania Economy League’s Central Division, based in Wilkes-Barre.

Cartwright out of touch with county’s economy


ongressional candidate Matt Cartwright, what planet are you living on? I am writing in response to your campaign press release on Aug. 24. Luzerne County has the highest unemployment in the state. Look at the list of homeowners behind on their property taxes, which was recently published by The Times Leader; I did not count them, but I am sure it is in the thousands. Our roads and bridges are falling apart. Luzerne County is in debt from which it might never emerge. Remember the past election buzz words: It is the economy, stupid. Gerald Mech Nanticoke

fortified U.S. Embassy. The participation of Nasrallah, who seldom appears in public reportedly for fear of assassination, underscored Hezbollah’s apparent determination to use the outrage generated by the film to bolster its standing as a moral force in the Arab world. The group’s strong backing of Syrian President Bashar Assad, who is facing a bloody uprising, has cost it considerable support among many Arabs. On Sunday, a Hezbollah-controlled television station, Al-Manar, reported Nasrallah regarded the issue of the film as “more serious than what’s going on in Syria” -- a position disputed by Syrians and others who say Assad’s forces have killed thousands of civilians. During Monday’s rally, Nasrallah demanded that the United States and the international community block release of the full film. He insisted the trailer should no longer be available on the Internet and called for a boycott of websites that show the video. In his comments Sunday, the Hezbollah chief dismissed as “hypocrisy, deception and double standards” the Western arguments that blocking the video would violate freedom of speech. He called for “an international resolution criminalizing the defa-

Libyans came to Stevens’ aid Witnesses say U.S. ambassador was breathing and was rushed to a hospital. The Associated Press

CAIRO — Ambassador Chris Stevens was still breathing when Libyans stumbled across him inside a room in the American Consulate in Benghazi, pulled him out and drove him to a hospital after last week’s deadly attack in the eastern Libyan city, witnesses told The Associated Press on Monday. Fahd al-Bakoush, a freelance videographer, was among the Libyan civilians searching through the consulate after gunmen and protesters rampaged through it last Tuesday night. Al-Bakoush said he heard someone call out that he had tripped over a body. A group of people gathered as several men pulled the seemingly lifeless form from the room. They saw he was alive and a foreigner, though no one recognized him as Stevens, al-Bakoush said. He was breathing and his eyelids flickered, he said. “I tested his pulse and he was alive,” he said “No doubt. His face was blackened and he was like a para-

lyzed person.” Video taken by al-Bakoush and posted on YouTube shows Stevens being carried out of a small dark Stevens room through a window with a raised shutter and being laid on the floor. One man touches his neck to feel for a pulse. Some of the men shout, “God is great.” Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the attack on the consulate, part of a wave of assaults on U.S. diplomatic missions in Muslim countries over a low-budget movie made in the United States that denigrates the Prophet Muhammad. The accounts of all three witnesses mesh with that of the doctor who treated Stevens that night. A freelance photographer who was with al-Bakoush at the scene, Abdel-Qader Fadl, said Stevens was unconscious and “maybe moved his head, but only once.” Ahmed Shams, a 22-year-old arts student who works with the two, said the group cried out “God is great” in celebration after discovering he wasn’t dead.

WBCTC approves possibility of setting up its own cyber school By JANINE UNGVARSKY Times Leader Correspondent

PLAINS TWP. -- WilkesBarre Career & Technical Center students who need to make up an academic course could soon have another option besides summer school or making it up in their home district after the school’s joint operating committee approved looking into an arrangement with a cyber school. The committee voted unanimously Monday to allow the school’s administration and staff to evaluate setting up a cyber school, in which all instruction and assignments are done electronically on a computer, in cooperation with Seneca Valley Cyber School. Administrative Director Peter Halesey said the arrangement with the established cyber school would let students who have failed an academic class make up that class. Halesey said this would provide an additional opportunity for students to make up the work besides taking summer courses or spending time at

their home school to make it up. He said it was too early to tell how many students might benefit from the cyber school arrangement. The board also voted to approve a salary adjustment for practical nursing school assistant director Laura Zdancewicz to raise her salary to $73,399 effective immediately and prorated for the remainder of the school year. Administrators from the nursing program said they were unsure what Zdancewicz’s salary was before the increase. In other business, the board: •Approved Cheryl Fuller and Elaine Craig as per-diem appointments for the practical nursing program •Approved payment of $156 to attorney Ray Wendolowski for services from July 1 to Aug. 31 and $653 to attorney Jack Dean for services from July 131. •Accepted a letter of intent to retire from heating ventilation and air conditioning instructor Al Sanfanandre effective the end of the school year.

warned local officials and religious leaders against inciting riots. In neighboring Pakistan, protests against the film intensified Monday as demonstrators set ablaze buildings in the northwest and hurled stones at riot police in the southern city of Karachi, the nation’s commercial hub. At least one protester was killed when about 800 demonstrators clashed with police in the northwest region of Upper Dir, along the Afghan border, authorities said. Protesters torched a press club and the homes and offices of government officials, said Muhammad Mukhtiar, a police officer. Five people were arrested. Police did not say how the demonstrator was killed. In Karachi, hundreds of students affiliated with a fundamentalist organization, Islami Jamiate-Talaba, set American flags on fire, burned tires in the street and threw stones at police, authorities said. Police fired tear gas at demonstrators and arrested at least 40 people. With the protests ratcheting up, Pakistani Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf ordered the blocking of YouTube, the website on which a video trailer of the film has been posted. According to a statement issued by Ashraf’s office, he issued the order after YouTube “refused to heed the advice of the government of Pakistan to remove the blasphemous film from its site.”

He said the new charter requires “a unified vision and a collaborative approach.” Stretton said Medico Olenginski was “fully cooperating” with changes required by home rule. “Quite frankly, it appears that she is being retaliated against because she was one of the few that would stand up and raise issues and questions,” Stretton wrote.

Old Hanson’s Park land on tax sale list


The former Hanson’s Amusement Park land in Harveys Lake is among 1,280 properties scheduled for Thursday’s Luzerne County back-tax auction. Despite the abundance of properties, bidding is expected to be light because buyers are on the hook for back taxes and other liens at the first-stage auction, known as an upset sale. “If we sell 10, it will be a lot,” said John Rodgers, owner of Northeast Revenue Service LLC, the county’s tax-claim operator. Unsold properties will advance to a free-and-clear sale next year, when liens are forgiven. Properties are listed for auction after two years of nonpayment. In order to get out of a sale, property owners who don’t pay up must file for bankruptcy protection or convince a county judge they need more time. The Tax Claim Office was swamped Monday with property owners making payments. The 30-acre Hanson’s proper-

Lehman duo combines for shutout

Falcons hold off Manning, Broncos

The Black Knights’ Kishbaugh and Jenkins were stellar in goal vs. Hanover Area.

By JAY MONAHAN For The Times Leader

HANOVER TWP. – In the scoringfriendly, division-less Wyoming Valley Conference girls soccer league, goalkeeping performances like that of Lake-Lehman’s Amelia Jenkins have been few and far between. Jenkins, along with teammate Kaylee Kishbaugh, shut out Hanover Area on Monday to lead the Black Knights to a 4-0 victory. “Our goalie made some great saves in the LAKE-LEHMAN beginning of the game that kept us in,� LakeLehman coach Kelly Adamshick said. “So we HANOVER were able to calm down AREA and relax, and played our game then.� The Lake-Lehman senior kept the Hawkeyes at bay while the Black Knight offense struggled to find its rhythm in the first half. She made three brilliant saves on a bizarre corner-kick opportunity in the 31st minute. In a scoreless tie, Jenkins batted down an Amelia Hossage corner and made two quick saves as the ball dribbled in front of the box. Defender Karen Yamrick then stopped a shot with her forehead to end the four-shot Hawkeye threat. “I am at a loss for words,� Hanover Area coach Brian Bannon said. “They just didn’t head the ball right. If you come up and go through it like you’re taught, it’s in.� Jenkins made seven saves in 50 minutes to stave off the pesky Hanover Area offense. Kishbaugh, a Northwest student, stopped two shots. Lake-Lehman (5-2) scored the first goal

Atlanta built 27-7 lead helped by three Manning interceptions before Denver rally falls short.

It’s not a homecoming for former PSU QB Newsome Current Temple backup transferred out of Penn State in August 2011. By KEITH POMPEY The Philadelphia Inquirer

Kevin Newsome stepped out of Edberg-Olson Hall and avoided stepping into a controversy. The reserve quarterback for Temple could have declared this

Saturday’s game at Penn State a grudge match, considering he left State College last year with bad feelings. InNewsome stead, the former Nittany Lion was diplomatic. “No, no special feelings,� the junior said of returning to Beaver

Stadium to face his former team. “The most important game of the season is always the next game. . . . It should be treated as such.� Newsome could have fired back at Penn State, where he lost a quarterback competition to Rob Bolden in 2010. In fact, Matt McGloin, who later became the

starter, beat Newsome out for the backup spot that season. Newsome was asked which Nittany Lions he has communicated with since becoming an Owl in August. “None,� he said. He spent 21/2 years at Penn State and became an Omega Psi Phi fraternity member. “I’m not going to treat it like a homecoming, because Penn State is not my home,� he said.


Talented players could be headed for the AHL Pittsburgh sent 23 players to WBS over the weekend before lockout began. By TOM VENESKY

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and more could be on the way if they are able to negotiate an AHL contract with the team. Players who were either on last season’s Clear Day roster, finished the season with an AHL team or played in the AHL postseason are eligible to ink contracts allowing them to play in the league while the NHL is in a lockout. Such a contract would be void if the NHL resumes play, allowing those players to go back up. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins head coach John Hynes said it’s possible the team could

The Collective Bargaining Agreement for the American Hockey League doesn’t expire until Aug. 31, 2014. There’s no chance that the league can experience a lockout at the same time as the NHL, and that means a glut of talented players are heading to the AHL to log some playing time in the interim. Over the weekend the Pittsburgh Penguins sent 23 players to See LOCKOUT, Page 6B

“My home is Philadelphia. The Temple Owls are who I play for. I’m an Owl.� That’s a lot of school spirit for a guy who has yet to play a down for Temple.

ATLANTA — Matt Ryan threw his 100th career touchdown pass, Roddy White had 102 yards receiving and the Atlanta Falcons defeated the Denver Broncos and error-prone quarterback Peyton Manning 27-21 on Monday night. The Falcons (2-0) took advantage of three interceptions by Manning in the first quarter and raced to a 20-0 lead. Manning brought the Broncos (1-1) back with two fourth-quarter scoring drives, but it wasn’t enough to make up for his awful start. The only other time he’s been intercepted three times in the opening quarter was with the Colts in a 2007 game at San Diego. Ryan was much more efficient, completing 24 of 36 for 219 yards. He hooked up with Tony Gonzalez for a 1-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter, then went to White on a 4-yard score in the third period. After his horrible start, Manning finally connected with Demaryius Thomas on a 17-yard TD pass with 6 seconds left in the first half. But Ryan guided the Falcons on a 64-yard drive that put the home team solidly in control heading to the final quarter. On the game’s third play from scrimmage, Manning threw into triple coverage to Jacob Tamme, but Falcons strong safety William Moore stepped in front of the tight end for an interception. Moore ran down the left sideline 33 yards before Orlando Franklin tackled him at the 1. Falcons running back Michael Turner ran twice over the left side of the line before jumping over a stack of Atlanta and Denver linemen to cross the ball over the goal line for a 7-0 lead with 13:20 left in the first quarter.

If lockout persists, AHL could benefit Penguins may advertise out of this market to loom fans of other teams. By TOM VENESKY

On the business side of things, the NHL lockout won’t be much of an impact to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. Marketing strategies may be tweaked a bit to attract hockeystarved fans from out of the area and attendance may rise a bit, but Wilkes-Barre/Scranton CEO Jeff Barrett would gladly pass on those perks if it meant getting the NHL back on the ice.

"(The lockout) is not good for the game," Barrett said. "A healthy NHL makes a healthy AHL." The last time a lockout took place in the NHL it resulted in the loss of the 2004-2005 season. While the Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins were still selling out most of their games at that time, there was a rise in attendance throughout the AHL. According to Jason Chaimovitch, vice president of communications for the AHL, attendance rose 6.5 percent from 20032004 to 2004-2005 when the NHL lockout took place. See BENEFIT, Page 6B

Well, it’s been a week since we last had some live racing and I know for sure that I have missed it. Even though it’s not the most impressive card you’ve ever seen, we got some pacers and trotters back on the grounds tonight at the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. It won’t be long and before you know it the harness racing season will be over. Just about two months of live action to go, so get out and enjoy what’s left of it.

Philadelphia’s starting pitcher Cliff Lee winds up against the Mets in the third inning of the Phillies 3-1 win at Citi Field in New York on Monday.

Lee stifles Mets; outpitches Dickey By BEN WALKER AP Baseball Writer

NEW YORK — Cliff Lee struck out 10 while outdueling Cy Young contender R.A. Dickey, and the Philadelphia Phillies regained their winning touch by beating the New York Mets 3-1 Monday night. Jimmy Rollins homered with the help of video replay and Domonic Brown also hit a solo shot off Dickey (18-6). The Phillies pulled within 31⁄2 games of idle St. Louis for the second NL wild-card spot, though other teams are also in their path. Philadelphia had lost three of four at last-place Houston before arriving at Citi Field, where visiting teams have feasted. The Mets have dropped nine of 10 overall, and fell to 4-22 at home since the All-Star break. Lee (6-7) turned in his fifth straight sharp start, allowing seven hits over eight innings. He was in control, as always, with one walk. He has gone 14 consecutive starts with no more than one free pass. Dickey missed a chance to tie Washington’s Gio Gonzalez for the major league lead in wins, and has lost two decisions in a

row for the first time this year. Dickey projects to get three more starts this season. The knuckleballer allowed three runs, two earned, on five hits and two walks in seven innings. He struck out eight — he has 205 this year, one behind NL leader Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers — and lowered his ERA a tad to a league-best 2.67. Braves 7, Marlins 5

MIAMI — Dan Uggla hit a three-run home run in the first inning, Martin Prado tied a career best with four hits and the Atlanta Braves beat the Miami Marlins 7-5 on Monday night. Tim Hudson (15-6) allowed a season-high 10 hits in five innings, still beating the Marlins for the fifth straight time. Atlanta — which swept a three-game series from Washington over the weekend — moved within five games of the idle Nationals in the NL East. Gorkys Hernandez had his first three-hit game for Miami, the rookie’s average going from .157 to .178. Bryan Petersen and Hernandez hit consecutive triples in a four-run fourth inning for Miami.

Rangers hoping to hang on in AL West

Texas faces either Oakland or Los Angeles 13 times in season’s final 16 games. By STEPHEN HAWKINS AP Sports Writer

ARLINGTON, Texas — Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington held out one hand, then the other. Another division title is within reach for the two-time defending American League champions, and that is Washington’s way of demonstrating how they have their destiny in their own hands. As long as they can stay ahead of the surprising Oakland Athletics in the AL West. Even with the AL’s best record and being a season-high 28 games above .500, the Rangers (87-59) are still in a tight division race — with the young A’s the closest chaser instead of the expected Los Angeles Angels. “Everything is in front us,” Washington said. “Oakland, everybody thought they were going to go away. They don’t seem to be going away.” With 16 games left after their final off day of the regular season Monday, the Rangers lead the A’s by three games. The Angels, who added slugger Albert Pujols and former Texas lefty C.J. Wilson last winter, were 7 1/2 games back. “Hopefully for the rest of the season, we’ll be able to just win series,” said outfielder David Murphy, sixth in the AL with a .314 batting average after becoming an everyday player. “And we’ll be in a good spot.” Texas has won eight of its last nine series, and 11 of 13, after taking two of three games against Seattle over the weekend. The Rangers haven’t lost consecutive games in more than a month. And yet their division lead shrunk to two games — the smallest in more than five

months, since the first week of the season — when the A’s won eight of nine games. Oakland lost at home to Baltimore on Sunday, the first time in 10 days Texas was able to add a game to its division lead that was 5 1/2 games at the start of that stretch. The Rangers play seven of their last 10 games against Oakland, which is 41-19 since the All-Star break. But they play at Los Angeles and Seattle this week before “Hopefully coming home for four games for the against the rest of the A’s, then three more against season, the Angels. The seasonwe’ll be ending series able to at Oakland is just win in two weeks. Ryan Dempseries. And ster, who has we’ll be in won five consecutive starts a good with a 1.91 spot.” ERA and 36 David Murphy strikeouts in innings, Texas outfielder 33 starts the Tuesday night series opener against the Angels and Jered Weaver (17-4). The right-hander is 6-1 since getting traded from the Chicago Cubs just minutes before the July 31 non-waiver deadline. His first start for Texas was at home two days later against the Angels, when he gave up eight runs in 4 2-3 innings — the same number of runs the Rangers scored in 5 1-3 innings off Wilson that night in a game they eventually won 15-9. Dempster, who also allowed eight runs in a loss at the Yankees before his current winning streak, called it exciting to be in a pennant chase with a team that has been to the last two World Series. He has a sense why the Rangers have been able to have that kind of success.

ChiSox defeat Tigers, push Central lead to 3 Two defensive players lauded for efforts P E N N S TAT E F O O T B A L L

The Associated Press

CHICAGO — Omar Infante’s throwing error on a potential double play helped Chicago scored two runs in the fifth inning Monday and the White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 5-4 in a pivotal makeup game. Chicago increased its lead in the AL Central to three games. Nate Jones (8-0) pitched 2 2-3 innings of one-hit relief and the White Sox won their fourth straight. The game had been postponed by rain last Thursday and Monday’s makeup was the final meeting of the season between the two front runners in the division. Addison Reed, the last of three relievers in the ninth, got the final out for his 27th save in 31 chances. Trailing 4-3, the White Sox loaded the bases for a third straight inning in the fifth, driving out Detroit starter Doug Fister (9-9). When Dayan Viciedo hit a one-out grounder to short, the

Tigers tried to turn the inningending double play, but Alex Rios slid hard into second baseman Infante and forced an errant throw that got by Prince Fielder as two runs scored, giving Chicago the lead. Detroit won the season series 12-6 and captured 9 of the final 11 games between the teams, including two of three last week before the four-game series finale was postponed. Red Sox 5, Rays 2

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Jacoby Ellsbury homered and drove in three runs, Aaron Cook stopped his five-game losing streak and Boston beat Tampa Bay. Tampa Bay, coming off a 1-5 road trip to Baltimore and New York, fell 51⁄2 games behind the AL East-leading Yankees. The Rays started play four games back of the Orioles — who were at Seattle later Monday night — for the second AL wild-card spot.

Mauti nabbed Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week and Barnes is Co-Freshman. MCT REGIONAL NEWS The York Dispatch.

Two Penn State football defensive players have been honored by the Big Ten Conference. Senior linebacker Michael Mauti and redshirt freshman defensive end Deion Barnes were recognized for their efforts in Penn State’s 34-7 win over Navy last Saturday. Mauti was selected Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week for the second time in his career and Barnes was named the conference’s Co-Freshman of the Week for the first time. Mauti previously earned Big Ten weekly honors after the Northwestern game in 2010. Mauti led a defensive effort that resulted in forcing four turnovers, including one defensive touchdown, and holding Navy to



just seven points and 4 of 15 on third down conversions to boost Coach Bill O’Brien to his first career win. Mauti posted a gamehigh 12 tackles (seven solo) for his fifth career game with 10 or more tackles and second this season. The Butkus Award candidate also recorded his first sack of the season (minus-21 yards) and had two tackles for loss (minus-26). He led a defensive effort that resulted in season highs of four sacks and nine TFL. For the season, Mauti leads Penn State and is No. 3 in the Big Ten with 33 tackles (17 solo), with one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and a pass break-up. Playing in his third career game, Barnes shares his first Big

Ten honor with Indiana quarterback Nate Sudfeld. Making his second start, Barnes recorded a season-high five tackles (three solo), including his third sack of the young season. He forced his second fumble of the year on a sack on a Navy fourth down play from the PSU 31-yard-line early in the third quarter with the Nittany Lions leading, 20-0. Barnes is tied for second in the Big Ten with three sacks and tied for No. 1 in the conference with two forced fumbles. Barnes has seven tackles (five solo), with three sacks and two forced fumbles.

Cornell’s three goals lead Sem The Times Leader Staff

HAZLETON – Henry Cornell scored two of his three goals in the second half to break a tie and lead Wyoming Seminary to a 4-2 victory over Hazleton Area on Monday in a Wyoming Valley Conference boys soccer crossover match. Malcolm Lumia and Cornell each scored in the opening 40 minutes to give the Blue Knights a 2-0 lead. But the Cougars evened the score at 2-2 on tallies from Robert Caffray and Tyler Bicking. Cornell then nailed a pair of penalty kicks less than four minutes apart in the second half to help Seminary pick up the win. Wyoming Seminary 4, Hazleton Area 2

of the game on one of Emily Sutton’s two goals. Sutton maneuvered through the middle of the field to strike the corner of the net in the 32nd minute. The Black Knight offense opened the second half with a more driven authority, piling on three goals in a 17-minute span. Shoshana Mahoney added the second goal off a Sutton feed to engineer the scoring frenzy. Morgan Goodrich stole a ball off a defender and launched a strike from 20 yards, and Sutton capped the offensive output with her second tally of the game. “Well, the first half was terrible,” Adamshick said. “Second half was much better. We just played with confidence and put the ball on the ground, made some great passes. We settled down and put the ball in the net.” Hanover Area (3-3) was held scoreless, despite controlling possession for the majority of the

first half. The Hawkeyes held a 19-16 advantage in shots, and a 7-2 edge in corner kicks. The Hawkeyes nearly scored on two Caitlyn Bogart indirect kicks from over 30 yards out that just sailed over the crossbar. “We just couldn’t put it in the net,” Bannon said. “That’s pretty much how this year has been going. We lost one of our top goal scorers (Gabby Murphy), and we’re just looking for someone to step up. We have a pretty young crew.” Lake-Lehman 4, Hanover Area 0

Eagles center out with torn ligament The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Eagles center Jason Kelce will miss at least four to six weeks because of a tore knee ligament, and it’s possible he could face seasonending surgery. Kelce injured his right knee in Philadelphia’s 24-23 win over Baltimore on Sunday. An MRI on Monday revealed he tore his medial collateral ligament and has a partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament. Eagles head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder said Kelce’s MCL needs at least four to six weeks to heal. Kelce will undergo further testing on Tuesday to determine whether his ACL needs to be reconstructed. If so, he’ll miss the rest of the season.

starting job at quarterback. The 21-year-old, who left Penn State in August 2011, was out of football for a year while attending Tidewater (Va.) Community College, which does not have a football team. So in addition to being unfamiliar with Temple’s offense this summer, he wasn’t in peak shape. After being denied a waiver to transfer to Temple in January, Newsome took courses at Tidewater until the end of July. So he


ASHBURN, Va. — The early glow from Robert Griffin III’s fast start faded quickly for the Washington Redskins on Monday when defensive starters Brian Orakpo and Adam Carriker were declared out for the season. Two-time Pro Bowl linebacker Orakpo tore the pectoral muscle near his left shoulder, and defensive end Carriker tore the quad tendon in his right knee in the first quarter of Sunday’s 31-28 loss to the St. Louis Rams. The injuries rob two players from a team that has allowed 63 points and more than 800 yards in its first two games, tempering the early promise by Redskins (1-1) have shown with rookie was way behind Coyer and backup Juice Granger during training camp. Since the season began, he has been leading the scout team in practice. However, the Portsmouth, Va., native did line up at wideout during Wednesday’s practice. “I would definitely do whatever is needed for the team,” Newsome said of a possible position switch. “You know if I can help in any regards or any way to help give us a chance to win, I would do whatever I have to do, because it’s all about the team, the team, the team.” Newsome said he approached

quarterback Griffin. “It’s an opportunity for somebody else now,” linebacker London Fletcher said. “We’re a no-excuse football team.” Orakpo had surgery on the same shoulder after a suffering tear in the final game of last season, then damaged some scar tissue in the shoulder during a preseason game last month. Coach Mike Shanahan said the latest tear is in a different part of the muscle. Orakpo will have surgery and require four months of recovery time. Orakpo, a first-round draft pick in 2009, had at least 81⁄2 sacks in each of his first three NFL seasons. He was injured Sunday while making his first — and only — sack of this season. He returned to the game

Temple coach Steve Addazio about moving to wideout or safety after last Saturday’s 36-27 loss to Maryland. Addazio was not available to comment. Newsome is confident that he can provide a spark at wideout, if needed, even though he has not played the position. “You can’t coach heart,” he said. “You are born with ambition. You are born with heart and integrity in your profession. “And this is my profession. Winning games for the Temple Owls is my profession.” Two years ago, Newsome expected to be handed Penn State’s

twice but was unable to keep playing. “He’s obviously everything you look for in a Pro Bowl player,” Shanahan said. “And we’ll miss him.” Shanahan said Rob Jackson and Chris Wilson, a pair of career backups without an NFL start between them, will compete to take Orakpo’s outside linebacker spot. Carriker was hurt on the Rams’ second offensive play and did not return. The fifth-year veteran, who had 51⁄2 sacks a year ago, will require five months of rehabilitation after his surgery. He will be replaced by Jarvis Jenkins, a 2011 second-round pick who missed his entire rookie season with a knee injury. starting quarterback position as a sophomore, replacing the graduated Daryll Clark. Instead, Newsome walked the sideline for most of the season, throwing just 13 passes. He did not go with the team to that year’s Outback Bowl, and disconsolately walked away from State College the following August. A year later, he says his only goal is to make his teammates better. “I’m not a selfish player at all,” he said. “I want to do the best for the team. . . . I help with the scout, and I do the best I can to give [Temple’s starting defense] a good look.”

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — JR Motorsports parted ways Monday with crew chief Tony Eury Jr., 10 days after his father was ousted as competition director. Eury Jr. was crew chief for Danica Patrick and is a partial owner of the Nationwide Series team. “I had hoped he would be here for a long time, but as we’ve discussed the direction of JR Motorsports moving forward, it was clear our differences in ideas were too vast to overcome,” said Dale Earnhardt Jr., one of four owners of the race team. Earnhardt Jr. and Eury Jr. are cousins, and Eury Jr. was his crew chief for many years at the Sprint Cup level. “I love him like a brother, and you’ll never hear me say a bad thing about him,” Earnhardt said. “I know he’ll have much success in anything he does going forward.” JR Motorsports on Sept. 7 released Tony Eury Sr. as competition director after a discussion with him about team performance. JR Motorsports has won nine Nationwide races, but none since Jamie McMurray’s win at Atlanta in 2010. The team this year fields cars for Patrick and Cole Whitt, and is winless on the season.

Wingert playing a big role for Elizabethtown women’s soccer

The best way to describe the play of Laura Wingert with the Elizabethtown women’s soccer team is consistent. Coach Jason Petronis has a few more adjectives. “Laura’s value to our team and our program can’t be measured,” he said. “Her work ethic, leadership and constant energy on the field are invaluable.” Wingert (Holy Redeemer) is in her Wingert fourth season with the Blue Jays. She has been named to the Commonwealth Conference first team her previous three seasons. She entered this season with 19 goals and 19 assists for 57 points and had played in 54 games and started 52. This season, Elizabethtown is off to a 3-0-3 start and Wingert has had a big hand in compiling that record. She had the winning goal in a 2-1 victory over Lasell to give the Blue Jays the seasonopening Lasell Kick-Off Tournament title. And, last weekend, she had an assist on the goal that tied Eastern 1-1. “This season, Laura has a solid supporting staff around her so she’s able to focus more on an attacking role,” Petronis said. “So, it’s just more of the same for her – hard work, unselfish play and a ton of energy on the pitch.” NEW SPOT FOR LEO – Sophomore Emily Leo (Crestwood) has started all eight games for the No. 23-ranked Fairfield field hockey team, the Lady Stags standing at 5-3 after a 5-0 loss to No. 16 Michigan last Saturday. Leo has picked up a pair of assists. “Emily is playing a new position for us this fall as a right defender,” coach Jackie Kane said. “She is learning her new role and excelling in creating interception opportunities, positive tackles and a right-side attack. She has great speed on the ball and sees the field well distributing the ball to her teammates. She is a hard worker and a team player.” Freshman Kristian Stefanides of Forty Fort (Wyoming Seminary) is also on the squad. She’s played in all eight games off the bench and also has picked up two assists. WALLACE DOING THE JOB – Sophomore Kyle Wallace is


BILL ARSENAULT starting at left guard on offense for the Villanova football team which is off to a 2-1 start. The 6foot-2, 285-pounder from Larksville (Wyoming Valley West and Wyoming Seminary) has helped the Wildcats rush for over 200 yards in all three games – 244 yards and four touchdowns in a 31-10 victory over Rhode Island last Saturday, 287 in a 28-13 triumph over Fordham and 212 in a 40-10 loss to Temple, a Football Champion Subdivision school. It’s the first time in 20 years that Villanova has accomplished that feat. “Kyle has emerged as a mainstay along the offensive line,” head coach Andy Talley said. “He had a terrific preseason camp and really took ownership of the left guard spot. He brings a toughness and a good understanding of the game. He has a bright future here at Villanova.” Wallace played in nine games and started five for the Wildcats last year as a true freshman. Villanova will face Penn Saturday in Philadelphia. PHILLIPS LEADS THE WAY – Senior Shauna Phillips (Dallas) is a key performer on the Widener women’s volleyball team, which is 8-8 after sweeping four games in the Neumann University Knights Invitation in Aston. The 6-foot middle hitter has 94 kills, 31 blocks and 22 digs and has a .236 attack percentage. She entered her final season with 356 kills, 146 blocks and 70 digs in 79 matches. “Shauna has emerged as our top middle hitter,” coach Donovan Anglin said. “She is being relied on to carry a great portion of the offensive load. She has evolved into an offensive weapon in the middle as well as a force at the net with her blocking.” Phillips is also serving as a tricaptain this season. “Shauna is relied upon not only for her leadership on, but off the court as well,” Anglin said. “I’m expecting a great year from her.” FOUR HELP THE ROCK – Slippery Rock field hockey coach Julie (Zoolkoski) Swiney played her high school field hockey at Crestwood so it’s not surprising that she has four former Wyoming Valley Conference players on

her squad – senior Gabrielle Malishchak (Nanticoke) and Ally Banks (Coughlin) and sophomores Lindsay Brown (Crestwood) and Courtney Lee (Holy Redeemer). All four are starting for The Rock. Midfielders Malishchak has picked up an assist and Banks’ two assists are key performers on defense. “Both are very well-rounded players and have been differencemakers for us,” Swiney said. “They are the core of our offense and defensive corner units. And, as captains, they are the leaders of our team on and off the field.” Brown has also picked up an assist thus far while keeper Lee has given up six goals and has 31 saves with a shutout. “Lindsay and Courtney have really matured from last season,” Swiney said. “Lindsay has become a consistent player with a great game sense in the offensive end of the field. Courtney has improved her technical skill and more importantly her communication which has helped our team defense tremendously.” The Rock is 3-3. After opening with three victories, the team ran into a buzz saw the past week – losing 2-1 to No. 1-ranked Shippensburg, 1-0 to No. 2 Bloomsburg and 2-0 to No. 6 Millersville. STIREWALT, SOKACH SOLID – Junior Sunny Stirewalt of Shavertown and sophomore Carly Sokach of West Pittston, both former Wyoming Seminary athletes, are off to good starts with the Penn field hockey team. Stirewalt, an attack, has scored two goals for the 3-3 Quakers, the goals coming in a 5-2 victory over Lehigh and a 5-4 triumph over Liberty. “Sunny came in with a great fitness level and that has really helped her game,” coach Colleen Fink said. “Now she’s fast and quick. She already had the ability but now she’s going at the pace we need. Now she can shake defenders and I really see her coming into her own.” Sokach has played every second in the goal after having seen action in just three games with one start as a freshman. She has given up 19 goals and has 36 saves. “Carly makes incredible saves in practice and once she transmits that to games she will really come into her own,” Fink said. “She went from a player who didn’t see much action to a per-

son that the team relies on. Once she gains a little more faith and confidence with the fact that she is our leader on defense, she will be fine.” DUTTER READY TO PLAY – Sophomore Zach Dutter (Dallas) has played in all seven games off the bench for the Springfield men’s soccer team, the Pride currently 1-6. “Zach came in last year as a great talent with great skills on the ball but was not ready for the physical aspect for college soccer,” coach Steffen Siebert said. “This year he seems to have the

right attitude and fitness which it takes to compete at this level.” The coach said that Dutter is also working a lot on his tactical awareness compared to last year. “I believe that Zach can have an even bigger input on the team this year because of the changes he’s made,” Siebert said. JACOBER KNOWS HER ROLE – Senior Rony Jacober (Hazleton Area) is not only a key performer for the Delaware Valley field hockey team, but the 5foot-2 midfielder is important for another role with the Aggies. “As a captain, Rony under-

stands that her role is to lead on and off the field,” coach Carol DiGirolamo said. “She has helped the team refocus and strive for a better season than last year (3-14 overall and 1-6 in the Freedom Conference). The Aggies are 2-3 after a 1-0 victory over Juniata last Saturday. Jacober picked up a goal and an assist in a 3-2 loss to Cabrini. “Rony’s skill has continued to get better every year,” DiGirolamo said. “She plays an important role on our midfield line. We depend on her to spark our offense.”



LOCKOUT Continued from Page 1B

be getting some familiar faces, namely defensemen Robert Bortuzzo and Brian Strait and forward Eric Tangradi. Hynes said the three players are in discussions with management about the prospect of playing in the AHL. "There’s a possibility that could happen," he said. "I would anticipate it by the end of this week or early next week. Definitely before camp." AHL training camps can open on Sept. 28 and they all will be crowded thanks to the lockout. Considering that players were sent to their AHL teams all at once - as opposed to the waves of cuts that occur during a typical training camp, Hynes said he will make some adjustments to how he runs things. "We might have to split them into two groups so they all get enough work in," Hynes said. "They also haven’t went through the rookie camp or Pittsburgh, so for the younger players it will be a lot more teaching time. But all



Eric Tangradi (top) could be suiting up for the Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins this season.

the players should be more rested and eager." Because of the crowded conditions, Hynes said, Wheeling and all East Coast Hockey League teams will benefit from the glut


If the lockout proves to be lengthy this year, Barrett said it’s possible the Penguins will make some attempts to lure fans starved to see some hockey and perhaps boost their own attendance. Last season the Penguins had five sell-outs and ranked 11th in the league with an average attendance of 6,028. "It wouldn’t make any sense to re-brand our marketing campaign on a lockout that may not last," he said. "What we may find ourselves doing is going for people outside the area." That doesn’t include Pittsburgh, which is five hours away and isn’t logistically feasible to attract fans to Wilkes-Barre. Barrett said 90 percent of the team’s fans are within a 45-50 mile radius of Wilkes-Barre, so attracting fans from Philadelphia on a regular isn’t likely. Besides, Barrett added, getting Flyers fans to root for a team affiliated with the Pittsburgh Penguins won’t happen. But what Wilkes-Barre/Scranton may do is market specific games that may appeal to fans from NHL cities. The Penguins host the Flyers AHL affiliate - the Adirondack Phantoms, twice during the regular season. Those games may be a draw to fans in Philadelphia if the lockout persists. "We may have to evaluate those types of games," Barrett said.

of talent coming down from AHL camps. "The rules in place really strengthen the AHL and ECHL by allowing so many talented players to play here and, because there’s only so many spots in the AHL, it will make the ECHL stronger," he said. From an AHL coach’s standpoint, the lockout does present some benefits as well. Hynes, for example, knows his training camp roster from day one and, after the season begins, he won’t have to worry about a player getting called up to Pittsburgh the day of a game. Or anytime for that matter, as long as the lockout persists. "It’s nice to have that roster stability, but on the flip side the players still need to invest the time and make their case here to go back to the NHL when it does return," Hynes said. "This will be the only game in town, so there will be a lot more scouts and NHL coaches and management paying attention."

Oil plunged suddenly Monday afternoon, dropping more than $4 per barrel at one point in a dramatic end to an otherwise quiet trading day in New York, Benchmark crude fell $2.38, or 2.4 percent, to finish at $96.62 on the New York Mercantile Exchange. That’s the biggest percentage decline since July 23. Oil plunged below $95 per barrel during the sell-off. Traders were unsure of the cause of Monday’s price drop. Some questioned whether an errant trade or another rumor about a release of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve was to blame.

smaller jets for larger airlines. There was only one international flight that sat on the ground for more than four hours, and it’s susceptible to a big fine. Caribbean Airlines flight 526 from Georgetown, Guyana to New York’s JFK Airport sat on the ground for four hours and three minutes. U.S. and international airlines can be fined up to $27,500 per passenger if a flight is stuck for more than three hours. The last time there were more three hour delays in a single month was October 2011. There was just one long delay last July. Overall, flights were less ontime in July than they were in both June 2012 and July 2011.


NEW YORK — The number of long delays in July involving planes stuck on airport tarmacs was more than the previous eight months combined, the government said Monday. Twenty-eight planes were stuck on the ground at U.S. airports for more than three hours that month, the height of the summer travel season. Eighteen of those planes were operated by U.S. carriers. Sixteen of the U.S. flights were going in or out of Chicago O’Hare on July 13, a day of severe thunderstorms. All of the longest delays were on regional carriers that operate

United Airlines, which has a base in Chicago, had the worst on-time rate. US Airways had the best ontime rate for a network carrier, but Hawaiian Airlines and Alaska Airlines topped the overall list. As more flights were stuck and passengers grew frustrated, they complained much more. The Department of Transportation received just under 2,500 complaints in July, almost double a year earlier and up 50 percent from June. They also had more reason to complain about lost or damaged bags. The mishandled baggage rate fell from a year earlier but was up from June.

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Federal prosecutors on Monday appealed a judge’s order that would free a disgraced businessman while he awaits sentencing for a $200 million fraud scheme at his Iowa-based brokerage. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Cedar Rapids filed paperwork asking Chief Judge Linda Reade to keep Peregrine Financial Group CEO Russ Wasendorf Sr. detained at the Linn County jail. Reade ruled hours later that Wasendorf would stay behind bars while she considered the appeal. Prosecutors said Wasendorf presents a risk of fleeing abroad or committing suicide before his sentencing hearing, which has not been scheduled. He is likely to face a recommended sentence of at least 24 years to life in prison, they disclosed in the filing. The filing came hours before the 64-yearold Wasendorf was to appear in federal court in Cedar Rapids to plead guilty to mail fraud, embezzling customer funds and lying to regulators. U.S. Magistrate Judge Jon Scoles ruled last week that Wasendorf could be released to live with his pastor in suburban Cedar Rapids after he formally entered his guilty pleas, saying he did not present a flight risk. In the appeal, prosecutors said Scoles was mistaken in downplaying the risk of Wasendorf not showing up for sentencing. Wasendorf was arrested in July after attempting to commit suicide outside the Cedar Falls-based firm and leaving a note detailing how he made false bank statements for 20 years to prop up the company and embezzle customer funds.

iPhone 5’s popularity highlights future risk of Net traffic jam WELL, AS PREDICTED, the launch of the iPhone 5 drove Apple fans into a frenzy, and pumped sales to stratospheric heights – a whopping 2 million in the first 24 hours. Naturally that rate of sale will decline to more reasonable levels in the coming days. Featuring high-speed 4G LTE connectivity, these devices are capable of consuming substantially more data than previous models. It’s only natural to assume that users of the latest iPhones will be putting the connectivity of their new devices through quite a workout – video calls, YouTube uploads, high-speed music downloads and the like. Curiously, the iPhone 5’s 4G is incompatible with European 4G networks, in contrast to other 4G

TECH TALK NICK DELORENZO phones which can be used internationally – and while there was rampant speculation that “NFC” (Near Field Communications) capability would be offered in the iPhone 5, allowing users to pay at the checkout counter with just a swipe of the device, that hasn’t happened. Still, it’s a big leap from 3G to 4G, and obviously people are buying the new iPhone in droves. But will any of them spare a moment of thought for the networks? Probably not. An interesting tidbit – it IS possible to run out of Internet – or, more correctly – it’s possible for a carrier to max out the amount of data its network can handle at any given moment.

diate issue, it’s possible we’re just a few revolutionary gadgets away from an Internet traffic jam – slowdowns caused by too many people trying to use the network at the same time. And at the rate mobile devices are being phased in, by the time this happens, it won’t just be an inconvenience – it will have far-reaching implications for everything from e-mail to e-commerce. This is, in part, why some providers have taken “unlimited” data plans off the table. Despite that, most carriers are confident that, for the time being, their networks will remain relatively quick and efficient. Time will tell whether that confidence is realistic or merely born out of hubris.

4G devices come online, this problem will only get worse. There are some bright spots amid all of this cloudiness. 4G signals are specifically designed to carry data efficiently, so the problem is not as bad as it would otherwise be. In addition, most providers are investing large amounts of money in infrastructure upgrades – adding capacity to their networks to cope with future increases. On top of that, they’re running out of usable spectrum. The government, the FCC in particular, periodically auctions off different chunks of the radio spectrum for use by commercial carriers – and the word is that the government is planning on making more available to commercial carriers, from frequencies previously reserved for military use. Even so, the radio spectrum – the usable portions at least – is finite, and while it’s not an imme10-YR T-NOTE 1.84%

Today will be a wash out. We don't get but just a handful of them all year and today promises to be a very rainy day. Some of the rain will be heavy as moisture-laden air is transported northward by a strong low level jet stream ahead of an approaching cold front. Indeed, the clouds will be racing across the sky today and winds will gust to between 20 and 35 mph. In higher elevations, gusts could approach 50 mph. Rainfall totals will range from 1"' to 1.8," enough to put a dent in our rainfall deficits. The rain will end tonight and the wind will diminish overnight as well. Keep dry today...if you can. - Tom Clark

6 Professionals On Hand To Assist You!


Proven ways to lose weight Here are some proven ways to shed extra pounds adapted from a recent article in Environmental Nutrition newsletter: Don’t believe in magic. There is no secret formula or food that will make weight fall off your body without effort. Be especially careful if a diet plan eliminates an entire food group. Pay attention to calories. They really do count. A proven strate-

gy for weight loss is to eat small portions of low-calorie foods. Spread calories over the day. Studies show that people who skip meals tend to eat more calories and have trouble losing weight. Goal is three small meals a day. Eat more high volume, low-calorie foods. A plateful of food does not have to be a plateful of calories. Two cups of lettuce, tomatoes, carrots and cucumber, for example are full of

nutrients and fiber for a mere 50 calories. Focus on nutrient-rich foods. Several studies show that eating foods high in nutrients and low in calories is an effective strategy for weight loss. Move it, move it, move it! Research continues to show that exercise COMBINED with a good diet plan can help us lose weight without starving. The goal? At least 30 minutes of activity most days plus at least 2 days a

week of muscle strengthening exercise. Eat more fiber. It may be one of the most important hungercontrolling nutrients we know of, say experts. Where is fiber? Only in foods that begin life in the ground: fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes and other plant-based foods. Eat fewer SoFAS. That’s nutritioneze for “Solid Fats and Added Sugars.” Solid fats can be identified on food labels by checking


— MCT Information Services



for “saturated” or “trans fats.” Don’t drink your calories. One 12-ounce soda adds 150 liquid calories. Learn “portion control.” Eating half our usual intake is a proven way to eat half our usual calories ... and lose weight. Create a meal plan. A good place to start is to access “SuperTracker.” It will show you a weight loss plan that works — for life.

Tyler Memorial recognized for infection control efforts 3M Corporation’s Infection Prevention Division recently recognized Tyler Memorial Hospital’s Central Supply Department for adopting an Every Load Monitoring policy to ensure proper sterilization of medical instruments, implantable devices and other surgical supplies. Current sterilization guidelines from the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation call for the periodic use of a “biological indicator” — a self-contained device that contains live/active spores that is sterilized along with a load of surgical instruments — to test whether proper sterilization of instruments has occurred. Tyler Memorial is located in Tunkhannock.

DMSO known as an effective pain reliever


Top high school athletes say eating habits are as important as workout habits. Wayzata swimmer Emma Paulson starts preparing for a meet five days in advance through her food.

Sporting nutrition Top athletes believe diet is key to success By JASON GONZALEZ Star Tribune (Minneapolis)


INNEAPOLIS — The raw bell peppers’ crispness muffled the

noise coming from James Onwualu’s mouth as he described the purpose of the colorful snack. Red, yellow and green peppers, mixed with broccoli and spinach, are a vital part of living a purified life, the Cretin-Derham Hall High School senior said. It’s the nourishment he sees as required to adequately prepare for goals that reach far beyond being the best wide receiver in Minnesota.

Emphasis on nutrition, carefully sculpted to match growing teenage athletes with their sport’s demands, are the edge that Onwualu and other talented individuals use to become the best in their sport. In a generation more accustomed to going online to educate themselves, these athletes form their detailed eating habits by heeding coaches, personal trainers and even parents. “It’s specific today with who you are and to the athlete,” said Onwualu, a Notre Damebound football standout. “My friends and schoolmates think I’m pretty crazy for it. They think I’m already where I want to be. But in my mind I’m not

where I want to be.” Across the metro, blue-chip athletes are similarly disciplined and committed. At Minneapolis Southwest, soccer player Zach Neiberger replaced chips with fruit. Shakopee cross-country runner Maria Hauger eats loads of spinach and red meat for the iron boost required for distance running.

Middle ground is a sound way to get baby to sleep, study says By MARY MACVEAN Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES - Nearly every parent knows that gripping, awful feeling of a baby screeching when put to bed — and the ensuing anxiety over whether to pick up the baby or tough it out and let the baby cry. New research shows that a middle ground not only brings peace to the household but also does no harm. So-called behavioral sleep techniques don’t cause long-lastSee CRYING, Page 2C


Q: What is your opinion of the pain reliever DMSO? I know it’s used on horses to relieve tendinitis and arthritis. I’ve heard that it helps with sprains and arthritis in people, but I’m not sure how safe that practice is. — R.H., Roswell, Ga. A: DMSO is a sulfur-based topical ointment or gel suspension that has an amazing ability to be absorbed through the skin and quickly combine with water-based tissues and provide rapid pain relief. DMSO also has the ability to draw water out of inflamed tissues and quickly reduce localized swelling. It’s most effective on soft tissue injuries like muscle or tendon strain because they’re plump with water. It’s been safely used for over 50 years to provide pain relief to horses and other animals. Other than causing garlic-like taste and breath and a pungent garliclike body odor from its sulfur base, it’s time-tested safe pain relief for animals and humans not allergic to sulfa or sulfur compounds. It doesn’t have any issues with liver toxicity, kidney toxicity or gastrointestinal ulcers and bleeds — unlike traditional anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin, Advil and Aleve. DMSO is available in many health food stores and veterinary supply stores as an over-the-counter topical product, but does not have an FDA approval for topical relief in humans. The reason for that is unclear, though it is not because of safety concerns. It is FDA-approved for use as a pain reliever instilled in the bladder of folks with “interstitial cystitis”. The most likely reason why it’s not FDA approved and promoted for humans is economics: there’s little point in a drug manufacturer spending millions of dollars seeking approval for a drug available without a prescription. Q: My husband lost both of his legs due to poor circulation. Since the double amputation, he’s suffered with phantom leg pain. The pain pills don’t help much. Is there anything else you can suggest? —N.R., Eau Claire, Wis. A: Treatment of phantom limb pain is not easy. Since abrasion or excess pressure of the stump can trigger or aggravate phantom pain, a comfortable wellpadded covering is very important. Pain medications, especially the codeine, hydrocodone or oxycodone types, are much more effective in treating nerve pain than aspirin, Advil or Tylenol. Another method of treating nerve pain is actually the use of anti-seizure medications like Tegretol or Neurontin — regardless of whether there’s a seizure disorder. Anti-depressants like Elavil, Pamelor, Trazodone or Cymbalta can also help. Dr. Mitchell Hecht is specializes in internal medicine. Send questions to him at: "Ask Dr. H," P.O.

“Crying it out” was for a time recommended, at least among mothers desperate for sleep. That “is not usually recommended nowadays because of the distress it causes parents and infants,” the researchers wrote.

ing harm to the child or to the relationship between the parent and child, the study published this week in the journal Pediatrics shows. “Parents and health professional can confidently use these techniques to reduce the short- to medium-term burden of infant sleep problems and maternal depression,” the study authors wrote. The study, by researchers at several institutions in Australia and Britain, of children at age 6 was a follow-up to one conducted of infants whose parents reported sleep problems at age 7 months. Nearly half of parents report sleep problems in their babies who are 6 months to a year old, and techniques such as “controlled comforting” and “camping out” have been shown to help. Controlled comforting is gradually increasing the time taken to respond to the baby’s cries. Camping out has the parents sitting with the baby as he or she settles to sleep and gradually moving toward the door. Such techniques also have been shown to reduce maternal depression. And, the researchers say, there could be other benefits:

NUTRITION Continued from Page 1C

Swenson says no to sweets. Wayzata football player Mitch Underhill stopped drinking Gatorade. Each of these sacrifices has molded this group into the best and, in some cases, convinced fellow teammates to simply pay more attention to meals. “(Performance) depends on what you eat. I don’t eat candy. I don’t drink pop. I keep my muscles hydrated and healthy,” Onwualu said. “I feel my body is more pure. Food has kind of become not a pleasure. I don’t love different kinds of food, but there are certain things I eat that are good for you.” Hopkins volleyball coach Vicki Seliger-Swenson empowers her team by handing out articles on nutrition. She said the awareness has created an overall healthy environment regardless of the athlete’s commitment level. An average week for Onwualu begins with a visit to the supermarket with a detailed grocery list, edited by nutrition and training coach Ted Johnson. Onwualu prepares his own meals. Along with peppers, his recent lunch included a couple of forms of fruit

and three sandwiches — turkey, chicken breast, ham. This midday refuel is part of a 5,000-6,000-calorie diet engineered for Onwualu’s needs not only as a football player, but more specifically a wide receiver. “Pretty sophisticated stuff” is how Johnson categorized the lifestyle. Along with the rigorous nosupplement nutrition habits he instills in clients, he also pushes them beyond traditionally accepted workouts. Underhill, training alongside Johnson after missing all of last season because of a knee injury, gained 20 pounds while maintaining 8 percent body fat. In-

Our Newest Men’s Line HAS ARRIVED...

depth analysis of the Wayzata running back’s body type and its needs produced a diet of six to seven meals a day. At each meal he consumes a serving of vegetables and avoids sugars. The senior’s attempts to gain weight allow for one sweet exception: His final meal of the day is often ice cream and waffles. “I pretty much just eat the same thing. We don’t have anything else (at home),” Underhill said. “It’s more about performance and gaining weight. And outlasting everyone.” Found among the Waconia volleyball team rules is a section on nutrition. It’s important to coach Jim Lee that his athletes are well-

fed. “If we eat healthy, we play healthy,” Pioske said. “You can tell if you eat a bunch of junk food. You feel slower and don’t feel as energized. You’re more awake and alert.” That means limits — two cans of soda per week, no coffee, no candy or cookies Monday through Friday — to help Lee’s group produce a more balanced diet. Rasa Troup, a sports nutrition specialist and dietitian for University of Minnesota athletics, believes such guidelines will help create good eating habits. An advocate for healthy lifestyles and nutrition-minded athletes, Troup is concerned about misinformation leading to exaggerated eating that has adverse effects on athletes. Her research has shown that teenagers often use unqualified sources, such as the Internet or teammates, as nutrition guides, instead of a trained professional. “From my experience is that when I talk to high schoolers, only a few of them understand how to fuel the body for physical performance. Some don’t fuel enough and some are overfueling,” said Troup, also a former Olympian. “If athletes get information from correct places, they can fuel the body for adequate performance.”

Woman’s friend and golfing companion has knocked her into the rough Dear Abby: I thought “Arlene” was a close friend until I heard that she and another “friend” had arranged a trip to the theater. Several other women were also invited, but I wasn’t. I should point out that when Arlene and I attended shows in the past, I was always the one buying the tickets. I paid for her golf dues last October because she was a little short, and she still owes me about $1,000. Arlene and I have shared many shopping trips together, and I have always picked up the tab for lunch. What’s your take on this? I’m crushed! — Left Out

DEAR ABBY ADVICE Dear Left Out: If this was a one-time event, then it’s time to “uncrush” yourself because, regardless of how much money you have invested in your relationship with Arlene, you don’t “own” her. My take on this is that in your zeal to be a good friend you have gone overboard. If being excluded is an ongoing problem, then you and this woman are not as close as you assumed, or she has decided to take a breather. In that case, my advice is to work out a payment plan for the golf dues you are owed and widen your circle of friends.


Dear Abby: We have a large condo in Florida and are thrilled to have family and friends visit. I keep a small calendar of our appointments, events, etc. in the corner of my kitchen. A few of our visitors have made it their business to read the calendar and ask me who and what these events are all about. My husband and I have been having some marriage problems and are seeing a therapist. One relative noticed these appointments and wanted to know “what that was all about”! Abby, isn’t it rude to read someone’s personal calendar and ask these kinds of questions? I must leave the calendar where it can be seen or my husband doesn’t remember medical appointments, etc. — Calendar Girl


Dear Calendar Girl: Of course it’s rude to read someone’s personal calendar. (It’s called snooping.) Before the next houseguests come to visit, relocate the calendar to a private area. Then remind your husband about his appointments. That way he will know the schedule, and there will be nothing to arouse anyone’s curiosity. Dear Abby: Why can’t bakeries slice English muffins and bagels completely through? Nobody eats either one without toasting them and slicing them first. Along the same line: Why do loaves of bread have “ends”? Everybody throws them away and they are wasted. — Mina in Kelso, Wash.

Dear Mina: English muffins aren’t meant to be sliced. To prepare them at their best, they should be purchased whole and the perimeter perforated using a fork so the muffin can then be torn apart before toasting. This leaves lots of irregular nooks and crannies so when they are buttered, they are even more succulent. As to the ends of bread loaves, not everyone throws them away, just as not everyone cuts the crusts off. Some people enjoy the heels because they make for a chewier sandwich. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). Loved ones have angered, irritated and frustrated you. You think that’s what pushes you away, and maybe that’s true. But it’s also what draws you close. Revisit the situation with fresh, forgiving eyes. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll become someone’s informal mentor. With every piece of assistance you offer, you’ll grow just as enriched and educated as the one you’re helping. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may secretly feel that certain work is below you, but you do it anyway, mostly because it needs to be done. This ethic will hold you in good stead in an organization and among your loved ones, too. CANCER (June 22-July 22). People will listen carefully to what you say and will take you quite literally. This might not be as nice as it sounds. Be very careful how you word things. Figure out what you want before you talk. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your natural, easy-going pace will give you an increased immunity to stress. You progress without pushing yourself or anyone else. Others learn from your example. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may feel that agreeing with those around you is part of your job: It’s what’s expected, and it will be easier than disagreeing. And yet, you won’t always do so. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be offered a challenge, and you’re not one to back down. You might initially be stumped, but not for long. In the evening, you’ll go at the problem from a new angle and solve it immediately.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Thinking is all well and good, but thinking can’t make it so. You won’t be able to force yourself or the entirety of the world to do what you think. But when you start to move, so does everything. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In the area of romance, you’ll get as much attention as you give. The equality is comforting. You can relax into the idea that fair is fair. Enjoy this rare moment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Humanity has come far from its primitive stage, and yet it’s likely that the day will be shaped by the age-old question of what to eat. What’s simple and true never changes. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The same thing can be said in hundreds of ways, but there are more than a few people who like the way you say it the most. That’s why you’ll have followers and fans today. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When people copy your style, it doesn’t always feel like a compliment, and yet it always is. They wouldn’t bother to emulate you if there wasn’t something irresistibly appealing about what you do. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 18). If people want to know what you’re thinking about (and they often will), they need only look at what you’re doing. You put your mind in motion this year. The next five weeks bring about a healing. November turns strangers into friends. Cancer and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 4, 1, 30 and 15.
