PITTSTON – A woman living in a shelter who investigators believe may have been the victim of foul play after blood was found Saturday in a city park has a criminal history and a recently filed protection-from-abuse order. Investigators said Lillian Calabro, 48, has been missing since late Friday evening and her disappearance may be related to a Calabro crime scene discovered near the Water Street Bridge. Attempts to contact Calabro’s family Monday were unsuccessful. Investigators have not specifically said if blood and personal belongings found near the bridge belong to Calabro. In a PFA Calabro filed in November against Andrew Pacovsky, 34 of Wyoming, she alleged physical abuse in a romantic relationship she had with Pacovsky. On Nov. 19, she said Pacovsky returned to their South Main Street, Pittston, residence drunk and disorderly, and threatened to kill her cat. “I locked the door and called the Pittston police department, who asked him to leave,” Calabro wrote. A month earlier, Calabro said Pacovsky, who became dangerous while drinking, slapped her and threatened her with violence, prompting her to stay with a friend for a few days. She wrote that, since the summer of 2010, there “has been an ongoing battle about every two to four weeks” when there is a “cycle of drunken outbursts.” The protection-from-abuse order was granted Nov. 30 by county Senior Judge Richard Saxton for a one-year period. Pacovsky was ordered to stay away from Ca-

After death, father’s true heroism revealed

George Keil, who died Saturday at 94, shot twice but still saved lives. By SARA POKORNY spokorny@timesleader.com

PLAINS TWP. -- Janice Keil knew her father, George Keil, was a war hero, but she had no idea to what extent. “None of us found out that he was shot in both legs until after he passed,” she said. “We found some articles published in the 1940s in his photo albums and couldn’t believe it.” Keil, 94, of Plains Township, passed away on Saturday, but his heroic tale lives on. He suffered his wounds while in Manila in 1945. A staff sergeant in the 129th Regiment, 37th Division of the U.S. Army, he and a group of infantrymen found themselves stranded on a river bank after meeting heavy Japanese gunfire. Although two men were already killed while trying to cross to get help, Keil decided to be the third to go – wounded legs and all. He made it across to safety and rescue followed, saving the stranded soldiers. Though this story was told time and again among others afterward, George Keil himself didn’t find much reason to talk about it. “What I know about World War II, those guys went through hell,” said Janice Keil. “I think if I had come from that I wouldn’t want to be digging up those memories either.” His family only knew of a bullet wound in one leg. “I knew he swam across the

channel, but I didn’t know the details,” said Janice. “The only reason I knew he was shot in one leg is because Keil the bullet was still there and, towards the end, he would complain about that leg a lot. The bullet in the other leg had been removed, so we had no idea.” Though George Keil never chose to speak about the war, Janice feels the choice to keep it in didn’t change him. “I have seen guys come back from war that do have psychological problems that haunt them, but I never saw that with my dad.” “His family was really important to him, he was a great father,” she said. George Keil served from1941to 1945 in the Pacific Theater. He received the Good Conduct Medal, Philippine Liberation Ribbon, Asiatic Pacific Service Medal, a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart. The greatest honor was receiving the Distinguished Service Cross, the second highest military decoration that can be awarded to a member of the Army, right after the Medal of Honor. Keil leaves behind two daughters, a son, a brother, a granddaughter and a great-grandson. In his final days, Janice said, the war might have crept to the forefront of his thoughts. “He was talking to my brother not too long ago and he was very upset. All he said to my brother was ‘I could have saved more of those guys, ’” she said. George Keil’s obituary appears on Page 6A.

PSAT victims offered refunds Dallas School Board OKs motion on misuse of funds from PSAT registrations. By SARAH HITE shite@timesleader.com

DALLAS TWP. -- The Dallas School Board voted to offer reimbursements to those affected by the fundraising scheme headed by former guidance counselor John Wolensky. The board unanimously passed a motion to allow affected students and parents to file claims on the district website beginning April 14 in order to receive reimbursements for the misappropriation of funds from Princeton Review practice SAT test registrations. Wolensky pleaded guilty in March 2009 to a theft charge and was sentenced to two years probation. He admitted to unlawfully taking $24,683, but a state auditor general’s report released last year revealed that Wolensky may have misappropriated more than double that amount. Superintendent Frank Galicki said the district will begin to accumulate the necessary data in order to distribute appropriate reimbursements to those affected by the scheme between 1997 and

2008. He said that once there is verification, checks will be received within one month of filing a claim. The board also passed a motion to retain the services of attorney John Dean of the Elliott Greenleaf law offices to represent the district’s opposition in an upcoming hearing to the proposed natural gas metering facility to be built within 1,300 feet of the Dallas campus. Dean represented the district at the Feb. 9 Dallas Township zoning hearing in Chief Gathering LLC’s application to build a natural gas compressor station near the schools off Hildebrandt Road in the absence of district solicitor Benjamin Jones. Galicki confirmed the district will make an automated phone call to parents before the meeting at 7 p.m. April 14 to be held at the Dallas Middle School. In other news, the board heard a presentation from Chris Gillis, a graduate of Dallas High School class of 1977, for a possible event to mark the tearing down of the old high school. He told the board a committee has been formed to create events for Memorial Day weekend this year. Gillis estimated more than 300 former Dallas graduates would attend to tour the old and new high

school buildings.Board member Gary Mathers, head of the board’s property committee, said discussions with the general contractor at the new high school site revealed an event of that magnitude would not be safe. Board member Richard Coslett added the entire campus is an active construction zone, and holding a weekend-long event would be dangerous for attendees. Galicki said the main concerns are about the district’s liability. Gillis decided to withdraw his request upon receiving several responses from the board. Bob Nesbit of Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates told the board the high school construction project is three weeks, or 15 days, behind schedule. At last month’s board meeting, Nesbit said the project was just one week behind schedule. “Truthfully, I don’t think the general contractor was being totally honest with us,” said Nesbit of last month’s estimation. The board approved of four change orders to the project totaling $10,251. Board member Russell Bigus said errors and omissions can be reimbursed to the district after the completion of the project, set for the start of the 2011-12 academic year in September.

County officials will hold private hearings to determine what disciplinary action should be taken against three prison employees implicated in a recent drug ring arrest at the county prison. The employees --- Jason Fierman, Chris Walsh and Cpl. Joseph Ciampi – will have an opportunity to answer questions and defend themselves through a Loudermill hearing, which is a formal procedure used by public employers when employees face termination or suspension, said Prison Warden Joseph Piazza.

Piazza said after Monday’s prison board meeting. In the meantime, all three employees remain suspended without pay, Piazza said. Fierman and Walsh were arrested last week by the state Office of Attorney General after a 13-month grand jury investigation of drug activity at the prison. Ciampi was not charged but was identified as one of the people who purchased cocaine from Walsh. Grand jury records said Ciampi testified before the grand jury in April that he had purchased cocaine from Walsh on several occasions between 2008 and 2009. Piazza said the Loudermill

vote next month on any further disciplinary action that will be taken against the men, Piazza said. The prison board also voted Monday to promote treatment coordinator Jennifer Lombardo to a new day reporting center director position. She will continue to receive $41,200 annually. Piazza said five people were interviewed for the position, and the administration believed Lombardo would be the “best choice.” “She’s really been the acting day reporting center director. She was there from the beginning, and she knows how the program operates and what we’re looking for,” Piazza said.

Airport connector meeting tonight Plan would reconfigure I-81 exits for the airport, creating one exit in each direction. By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

State Rep. Mike Carroll and state Sen. John Blake will co-host a public meeting tonight to discuss the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport connector project, which would reconstruct the airport interchange off Interstate 81 and construct a road to the Grimes Industrial Park. The public meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Dupont Borough Building, 600 Chestnut St. Carroll said he and Blake will be joined at the meeting by members of the Greater Pittston Chamber of

Commerce, representatives from businesses located in the Grimes Industrial Park and Dupont Borough officials. At issue is a multifaceted plan that would reconfigure the Interstate 81 exits for the airport, creating one exit in each direction, instead of the two that currently exist. Part of the project calls for the construction of a .85-mile access road from the existing airport entrance off I-81, over the Pennsylvania Turnpike and connecting to Commerce Boulevard in the Grimes Industrial Park so trucks can have better access to I-81 and alleviate congestion in Dupont. The access road needs approval of the Bi-County Airport Board. The board did not take action at its February meeting and asked PennDOT to do more homework

and provide more data. Carroll, D-Avoca, said he and Blake,D-Archbald,wanttodiscuss the current status of the project with employers and employees in the Grimes Industrial Park as well as with the residents of Dupont. “The Airport Connector Project, which has been in the planning stages for more than 20 years, is vital to job retention and job creation while providing traffic relief for Dupont residents,” Carroll said. “At a time when unemployment is near 9 percent, projects such as this $42 million highway project are crucial to enhance job growth for the residents of Lackawanna and Luzerne counties. I am hopeful the Airport Board will carefully weigh the consequences of their decision for Northeastern Pennsylvania.”

Juror says verdict slip in cop’s trial wrong By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – A juror in the case of a former Shenandoah police officer charged with obstructing justice contacted a defense attorney after the trial to advise him the verdict slip had incorrectly stated the panel found the officer guilty of filing a false report, according to a posttrial document filed Monday. James West, attorney for Matthew Nestor, contends the statement by the juror, Diane Berger, bolsters his argument that there was insufficient evidence to support the verdict against Nestor. Nestor was found guilty on Jan. 27 of filing a false police report in connection with the fatal beating of Luis Ramirez, an illegal immigrant who died from injuries he suffered in a fight with

several Shenandoah teenagers in 2008. A second officer, William Moyer, was found guilty of making false statements to authorities, while a third officer, Jason Hayes, was acquitted of all charges. West filed a motion shortly after the conclusion of Nestor’s trial that asked U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo to overturn the verdict or, in the alternative, to grant Nestor a new trial. West maintained there was not sufficient evidence to support the verdict. In court papers filed Monday, West said Berger contacted his co-counsel, Joseph Nahas, after reading a newspaper article that stated Nestor had been found guilty of falsifying the police report. “The juror informed counsel

that this report was incorrect because the jury found no fault with any of the police reports and if count two required the false police reports the juror believed that the verdict slip is filled out wrong,” West said. West said he believes that Berger, and possibly one other juror, also contacted the court to express their concerns. “We respectfully submit that this unprecedented ... declaration by two jurors that the verdict slip was wrong as to count two, if that count found defendant Nestor guilty of a crime predicated on a false police reports ... requires a granting of judgment of acquittal,” West says. Caputo will review the document and issue a ruling at a later date.

County records options cost millions Choices include building a new facility or renovating another building. By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

Luzerne County government needs a new place to store records, and the options now on the table will cost an estimated $3.4 million to $3.8 million, according to information released Monday. County officials are considering building a facility or renovating a leased or purchased building because they want to get records out of the Thomas

C. Thomas building in downtown Wilkes-Barre, which has been criticized for temperature extremes, lack of security, leaks and fire hazards. An existing fee on deeds recorded in the county would help pay for the project. County officials are researching fees on copies and other services that would fund the center’s staff and maintenance without burdening the strapped general fund operating budget. At $3.4 million, the cheapest option is demolishing the county’s former juvenile detention center off River Street and building a new facility. The detention center’s lay-

He said the Democrats have a big edge in registrations over the GOP. “I want to urge people to get out and vote,” Sorick said. “And vote candidate, not party. Exercise your civic duty; let your voice be heard.” Sorick said he has attended City Council meetings and he has been critical of the administration and at other times he has given credit. Sorick and his wife, Katrina, own three businesses – Sorick Family Daycare, Sorick Properties and Tinos Pizza & Wings. “We believe in our great city; that’s why we are consistently investing in it,” he said. On his website Sorick has a quote from Albert Einstein that reads: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Sorick said, “Think about this quote for a second and ask yourself, ‘Does this quote apply to the way we vote?’ ”

WILKES-BARRE – A key witness against two brothers charged in the slaying of a man during a botched drug deal is their own cousin.

After nearly 90 minutes of testimony, District Judge Thomas Sharkey determined prosecutors established a case against the brothers, sending charges of criminal homicide, robbery and conspiracy to Luzerne County Court. Smith, 24, of Harrisburg, waived his right to a preliminary hearing, sending similar charges to county court. The preliminary hearing was held in Wilkes-Barre Central Court due to space limitations at Sharkey’s Hazle Township office. “What happened to Mr. Shabazz should never have happened,” said Luzerne County Assistant District Attorney Jarrett Ferentino. “We are confident we know what happened and we’re going to present it. This was a drug deal that turned violent.” Ferentino is prosecuting the case with Assistant District Attorney Jill Matthews. West Hazleton police officer Richard Naprava testified he found Shabazz lying on the ground between two houses on North Third Street begging for help. Shabazz was taken to Hazleton General Hospital and flown to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township, where he died on Dec. 7. Smith testified he was picked up in Harrisburg by Calvin Garrett, the father of Izel and Isiah, and driven to the West Hazleton apartment. He said arrangements were made to buy marijuana from Shabazz. Calvin and a woman in the apartment left before Shabazz showed up, Smith said.

and Izel tried to shoot him again, but the gun just clicked.” After a second shot, Smith said, Shabazz ran out of the apartment and jumped over a porch banister. A 38-caliber handgun seized from Isiah Garrett’s bedroom in Mechanicsburg matched the gun used in the shooting, state police Cpl. Jody Radziewicz testified.

Winning Cash 5 ticket bought at Dallas store By SARA POKORNY spokorny@timesleader.com

DALLAS -- A winning Pennsylvania Lottery Cash 5 ticket from Saturday’s drawing worth $225,000 was purchased at Turkey Hill on Memorial Highway in Dallas. No one has come forward to claim the prize yet. Winners have up to a year from the date of the drawing to claim the money. Winnings of this amount are actually

more prevalent than most think, a lottery official said. “Everyone always says ‘No one near me wins the lottery,’ ” said Kirstin Alvanitakis, spokeswoman for the state lottery. “That’s just not the case. We have the information on our website. There are peoplewhowinsubstantiallotteryprizes every day and from every region,” she said. In January and February of this year, four winners from Luzerne County came

forward to claim Cash 5 prizes, ranging from $75,000 to $225,000. Cash 5 is a nightly drawing in which players select five numbers, from one to 43, either manually or through computer-generated picks. All five numbers must match in order to win the jackpot. Prizes can also be won for matching two, three or four numbers as well. Odds of winning the jackpot prize are 1-in-962,598. The overall odds of winning any prize are about 1-in-10.5.

S-p-e-l-l-i-n-g b-e-e: It’s how you spell great

M

y heart ached when Madeline Delarche from Wyoming Valley West Middle School slipped up on “caribou” in Sunday’s regional spelling bee. You could tell she knew the word; she just had a brief lapse at the wrong time. By round six, when she made her mistake, it had become easy to root for Madeline. She seemed nervous, yet epitomized pluck every time she stepped to the microphone Jackie Tang, on the other hand, exuded cool. In pressed slacks and button shirt, he stood with one hand in his pocket, like a CEO poised to take on whatever came. From demeanor and early skill, I figured he’d be one of the last three or four, easy. But he faltered on “androcentric,” meaning dominated by masculine interests. By round six we were down to five. Daulton Zschunke from Hazleton Area’s Heights Terrace school had looked like an early out – slow to spell and unsure when he finished. His first word had been “kona,” a storm of southerly winds and heavy rains in Hawaii, and his struggle through those four letters was palpable. He knew it, too, giving out an audible “whew!” after getting it right. In round two, Daulton politely asked if he could go to the bathroom (yes), and then asked for some water. The plastic cup had a crack, and drops plopped near his feet, so he had to wait for a replacement. One would expect so many distractions to make him even tenser, but he loosened up substantially, generally breezing to Round 13, where he faltered on “hacienda.” And then there were four. On the edge of your seat Bear Creek Community Charter School’s Jennifer Goodrich became the most fun to watch. She usually spelled in a rhythmic monotone that kept cadence with a subtle bounce in her knees. She smiled often, and made the whole room chuckle when she found herself incapable of saying “ambiguity.” Contestants signal the start and end of their attempts by pronouncing the word. After spelling “ambiguity” perfectly, Jennifer tried to say it, fumbled and grinned: “I can’t pronounce it.” I held my breath in round 13 when Jennifer spelled “pitchblende” – a source of uranium – and stopped at D. We waited for her to repeat the word to signal she was done. After a long pause, she shot an inquisitive look and said “ um … E? Pitchblende?” “That is correct!” I said with relief. Jennifer faltered in round 20, spelling “sortie” – one mission by a single plane – with a D, which matches the official pronunciation. I suspect there would have been a different outcome had she asked for the alternate pronunciation, which has the T sound. The final three – Justin Prenga of Good Shepherd Academy, Ty Nichols of Geneva School, and returning champ Sukanya Roy of Abington Heights – were so good that, after five more rounds, we moved to tougher words. This meant going from “Tuckahoe” (a Virginian) and “neologism” (a new word) to “Voortrekker” (South African pioneer) and “Baedeker” (European guidebook series). Justin – lanky and very cautious with his letters – missed on Baedeker in round 26. Ty – steady and straightforward in his spelling -- missed in round 28 with “philhellenism,” the veneration of Greece. Which gave Sukanya the chance to nab her third consecutive regional title by spelling “apparatchik,” a communist secret agent. I’ve been a judge in at least five regional bees now, and the courage, talent and resilience of these kids and there families still leaves me… Well, spellbound.

Rome runs for county council

Democrat Thomas Rome, 54, of Dupont, has announced his candidacy for Luzerne County Council. A Pittston Area High School graduate, Rome has attended two years of business college and ran his own restaurant and video store business for three years. A maintenance mechanic at the Pittston Area School District, Rome has 26 years of experience in labor relations, including 18 Rome years serving as a union representative. Rome said he has “played a large role in negotiating contracts, taking pride in bringing management and workers together,” his announcement said. Rome has also volunteered in the community, coaching Little League Baseball and serving as an active member of the Dupont Lions organization. He has also assisted in one presidential campaign as well as numerous school board campaigns in an “attempt to bring about lasting change within the community,” the release said. He was endorsed by the Citizens Opposing Political Suppression (COPS) organization. “What sparked my interest in running was witnessing first hand the level of corruption and misuse of power within my own workplace and the desire to make a change to our current system,” Rome said. “Too many times has our community suffered by this misuse of power blinded by personal ambition and the desire to keep that power,” he wrote. “What we currently have is an opportunity to help level the playing field and gain back the public trust.’’ Rome and his wife, Kim, have three children.

Sources: Driver in crash stopped before

Bus operator involved in deadly NYC crash was convicted of manslaughter. By MICHAEL GORMLEY Associated Press

ALBANY, N.Y. — The driver of a bus in a horrific weekend crash that killed 15 people in New York City should not have been able to get behind the wheel because he had two drivers’ licenses and several traffic violations, two state officials familiar with the accident probe told The Associated Press on Monday. Ophadell Williams was ticketed in1995 for speeding and twice for driving without a license, using the alias of Erik Williams, the officials said. That license was suspended when the 40-year-old

driver didn’t address the charges. The revelations about Williams — a convicted felon with a 20-year-old manslaughter conviction — prompted Gov. Andrew Cuomo to launch a state investigation into how Williams was able to hold a valid commercial driver’s license at the time of the crash early Saturday. Calls to Williams’ Brooklyn home were unanswered Monday. A spokesman for the bus company that employed him, World Wide Tours, declined to comment on the instructions of federal investigators. A 15th person died Monday in the crash of the bus taking gamblers home from a few hours at the Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut. The bus was sheared in half by a sign pole after overturning on the highway, killing and

maiming people in a jumbled mess. Investigators have zeroed in on the driver’s record after Williams’ story that his tour bus carrying 32 people was clipped by a tractor-trailer fell apart when passengers and witnesses said it never happened. Investigators are piecing together his trail by matching Social Security numbers of traffic stops under different names, the officials said, speaking to the AP on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the investigation. Williams also had an incomplete log book, a requirement for commercial drivers, the officials said. Federal regulations ban commercial drivers from having more than one license. There are no federal regulations that would

Dozens of pirates nabbed

Five dozen pirates living on a hijacked ship serving as a roving pirate base jumped into the Arabian Sea on Monday after the Indian navy fired on the vessel in self-defense, the navy said Monday. The navy captured 61 pirates fleeing the battle and the fire that broke out aboard the hijacked vessel. The battle is the latest example of the piracy trade’s turn toward increased violence. A pirate in Somalia threatened Indian sailors and the government with targeted attacks in retaliation for the arrests. SACRAMENTO, CALIF.

cover instead in the industrial oil area where they believed Gadhafi forces wouldn’t fire. Brega and the city of Ajdabiya about 35 miles away again came under government bombardment on Monday, freshly exposing their importance as key crossroads for rebel supply lines, a main weakness in the Libyan region that contains most of its oil wealth. To get ammunition, reinforcements and arms to the front, they must drive along open desert highways, exposed to airstrikes. Gadhafi warplanes struck at least three targets Monday morning in Ajdabiya, missing a weapons storage site but hitting rebel fighters at a checkpoint in an attempt to stop supplies, rebels said. Oil installations — and the ports that allow Libyan crude exports — are just as key as supply lines, and so the government and rebels both went out of their way late Monday to claim victory in Brega at nearly the same time, with a state television re-

porter in the town going so far as to show the hour on his watch. The rebels have pleaded for the West to impose a no-fly zone. British Prime Minister David Cameron said David Cameron NATO was drawing up British Prime Minister contingency plans for a no-fly zone. “Every day Gadhafi is brutalizing his own people. Time is of the essence,” Cameron told the parliament in London. France and Britain were making an accelerated push Monday for a no-fly zone as U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other top diplomats from the G-8 group of prominent world economies were gathering in Paris for a previously planned foreign ministers meeting. The United States and other countries have been more cautious about a no-fly zone.

Talks between California Gov. Jerry Brown and a group of Republican lawmakers looking for a budget compromise hit a wall this weekend, and no further talks with the five lawmakers are scheduled. Brown spokesman Gil Duran tried to put a positive spin on the latest developments, saying the governor is “continuing to talk with Republican legislators.” But a spokesman for one of the senators who had been negotiating with Brown through the weekend said no meetings with those five lawmakers are scheduled. Joe Justin, spokesman for Republican state Sen. Bill Emmerson, spoke of the negotiations in the past tense Monday, blaming opposition from labor union leaders to changes in the state pension system and a cap on future government spending.

TOBRUK, Libya — Moammar Gadhafi’s warplanes, artillery and mortar shells can control huge swaths of territory by day, including oil ports, rebel supply routes and even hostile towns. Rebels say anti-government forces can still return in darkness to take advantage of Gadhafi’s own thin supply lines and overstretched ground troops. The eastern port city of Brega has gone back and forth with the setting of the sun in recent days and is key to the battle for Libya’s oil centers — so key that both sides claimed control of it nearly simultaneously on Monday. The regime offensive appears to be hampered by a lack of manpower: It can drive out rebels with barrages, but not necessarily hold the territory. Rebels, on the other hand, didn’t dare come out in the open on Monday in Brega, with a spokesman saying they were taking

Gen. Petraeus gives upbeat view of Afghanistan

Disney ride worker dies

A Disney worker injured Sunday while repairing the Primeval Whirl roller coaster died early Monday, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. The worker, identified as Russell Sherry Roscoe, 52, of Webster, Fla., suffered head injuries Sunday while working on a ride at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and was airlifted to Orlando Regional Medical Center, according to the sheriff’s office. He died there Monday morning. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration on Monday opened an investigation into the accident. No details have been released about the incident, which was not witnessed by guests at the theme park. In November 2007, Disney worker Karen Price, 63, was working on an elevated rider-loading platform when she was struck by one of the roller coaster vehicles.

Unions in Wis. rush to tie up contracts

Top war commander makes first appearance in Washington to meet with president. The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Gen. David Petraeus, in his first appearance in Washington since taking over as the top war commander in Afghanistan, gave President Barack Obama a mostly upbeat assessment of military progress that should allow the United States to begin withdrawing forces this summer, despite predictions that the wounded Taliban insurgency will mount an especially bloody fight this spring. No one is calling it the Taliban’s last stand, but U.S. officials say this is the year that the insurgency will be tamed on the battlefield and at the bargaining table. Petraeus met privately with Obama on

Monday, the start of a full week of testimony and other events. Petraeus was last in the Oval Office in June, when Obama fired Gen. Stanley McChrystal and turned to Petraeus as an Petraeus emergency replacement. Petraeus left for Kabul immediately and has made a point of staying out of the political spotlight until now. The general’s optimism comes with caveats, but it still marks a significant turn from worries a year ago about the strength and durability of the Taliban-led insurgency as the first of Obama’s 30,000 additional troops worked to take and hold Taliban strongholds in southern Afghanistan. Petraeus was expected to caution that the transition of control to Afghan security forces will be slow and difficult as the Kabul government struggles to find its

footing. And commanders are planning for a brutal spring fighting season as insurgents try to regain their place and test the fledgling Afghan troops. Petraeus, who testifies to Congress today and Wednesday, is likely to repeat his claim that the troop surge has worked to oust the Taliban from historical strongholds, particularly in the south. And he will likely begin to sketch out how the gradual U.S. troop withdrawal can take place, with Afghan troops taking control in more stable locales as U.S. forces shift to still precarious regions. Members of Congress, meanwhile, will roll out a resolution calling for Obama to withdraw U.S. forces from Afghanistan either in 30 days or no later than Dec. 31, 2011. Chief sponsors of the budget resolution are Reps. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, Walter Jones, R-N.C., and Ron Paul, R-Texas, a 2008 presidential candidate.

MADISON, Wis. — School boards and local governments across Wisconsin are rushing to reachagreementswithunionsbeforea new law takes effect that will take awaytheirability to collectively A hearing bargain over nearly all mat- on a suit ters other than challenging minimal salary the law is increases. Secretary of to be held State Doug La WednesFollette said Monday he de- day. cided to delay publication of the law until the latest day possible, March 25, to give those local governmentsasmuchtimeaspossibletoreach agreements. The law doesn’t take effect until the day after La Follette publishes it. Gov. Scott Walker had asked La Follette to publish the law on Monday, but La Follette, who called the new law the biggest change in labor management history in 50 years, said he didn’t see any emergency that warranted him doing that. La Follette said he heard from many schools, cities and counties urginghimtodelayenactmentofthe law as long as possible. Waiting the full10 days afforded under the law is the usual practice of his office anyhow, La Follette said. The law is also being challenged in court. A hearing on that lawsuit, brought by the Democratic Dane Countyexecutive,wasscheduledfor Wednesday. The new law would not affect collective bargaining agreements that are already in place, which is fueling thedecisionbyunionstoreachdeals as quickly as possible. The law ends collective bargaining for public workers over everything but salary increases no greater than inflation. It also forces state workerstomakebenefitconcessions that amount to an 8 percent pay cut on average. Walkerisproposinganearly$1billion cut in aid to schools in his twoyear budget plan.

The Wisconsin Association of School Boards is telling districts to be cautious about approving contracts that will make it more difficult for them to handle the cuts in aid Walker is seeking.

Stella C. Krystofolsky Mundy March 13, 2011 We know that life is never measured by how many years we live, but by the kindly things we do and the happiness we give. hat same happiness is what our mom, Stella C. Krystofolsky Mundy, gave throughout her life. Stella C. Krystofolsky Mundy died Sunday, March 13, 2011. Happiness and encouragement was given as she raised her six children. She was born a daughter of the late Costic and Valeria Butneski Krystofolsky, on May 4, 1918, in Plymouth. Stella graduated from Plymouth High School, class of 1936. In her younger years, she worked for Atwater Throwing Co., Leros, Mary McIntosh Laundry, and did house cleaning for families in the Wyoming Valley. Only having a high school education, our mom shined with her abilities to cook and bake, and the children were on the receiving end of many special meals. She spent many hours crocheting and had a special project of her own to crochet hat, scarf and mitten sets for the Wyoming Valley crippled children at Christmas time. Folks that knew Mom were amazed that she could tat special items with her tatting shuttle and talk with them at the same time. Many jars of her canning products were given to family and friends, only to be told by mom to make sure they returned the canning jars for a refill. Loaves of homemade bread would line the kitchen counter which she would offer whoever came to visit. Stella was a member of All Saints Church, Plymouth. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Mark Mundy, and 10 brothers and sisters. She is survived by daughters, Ellen Miller and her husband, Fred, Edwardsville; Karen Grady, Nottingham, Md.; and Valeria Jenkins

Man’s sex charge trial scheduled to avoid violating 180-day rule od exceeding 180 days is entitled to immediate release on nominal bail. Benner’s attorney, John Donovan, said his client has been incarcerated since June 23, and should be released on bail pending his trial on three counts of indecent assault and two counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse. Assistant District Attorney Jenny Roberts said she believed the 180 days end around April 20 because Benner wasn’t arraigned on the charges until 36 days after

his arrest and was being held in prison on unrelated charges. County Judge Joseph Van Jura said the 180-day period ends April 20, Benner may file another nominal bail petition and scheduled a trial to begin on April 14.

WILKES-BARRE – A former Ranshaw, Pa., man charged with forcing a then-teenage girl to perform lewd sex acts over a twoyear period will stand trial on related charges next month. Chad Benner, 37, appeared Monday in Luzerne County court, where his attorney asked that he be freed on nominal bail because he has been in prison for 180 days since his arrest. A state rule says any defendant held in pre-trial incarceration for a peri-

him. In an unrelated case, Benner was designated as a violent sexual predator by the state Sexual Offenders Assessment Board in September 2005 after he pleaded guilty to criminal attempt to commit unlawful contact with a minor. He was charged by state police in December 2004 for arranging

to meet someone he thought was a 13-year-old girl -- but who was actually an undercover state police trooper -- for sex in a parking lot in Hanover Township, according to arrest records. Benner was sentenced in October 2005 to two to five years in state prison. In the most recent case, a now-22-year-old woman said she

was a minor when Benner allegedly forced her to perform lewd sex acts from July 2002 to September 2004. She reported the alleged assaults to police in December 2008 after her memory was triggered when her husband hugged and kissed her from behind, according to the criminal complaint.

Man accused of Medicare theft gets plea deal By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – A Plains Township man accused of stealing from Medicare has agreed to pay back more than $700,000 as part of a plea agreement reached with federal prosecutors. Paul Chromey, 55, was charged Monday with one count of theft in connection with health care. Chormey’s plea agreement says the total loss

was $764,758, but the U.S. Attorney’s Office reduced the amount of the loss to just $100 for purposes of the plea, which means the charge is classified as a misdemeanor, as opposed to a felony. The plea agreement, which was signed Feb. 1, was filed in federal court on Monday. Neither the agreement nor the charge filed against Chromey provide any details of the crime. The U.S. Attorney’s Office did not immediately respond to request for additional information as of Monday evening. The case marks the second time Chromey has been charged

with Medicare fraud. In 1999, he was charged with fraudulently billing the federal health care fund $89,260. Authorities said Chromey, who served as business manager for a podiatrist who had offices in Old Forge and Exeter, billed for services that were not performed. The podiatrist in that case was not charged with any crime. Chromey pleaded guilty in July 1999 to one count of mail fraud in connection with that case. He was later sentenced to three years probation and ordered to pay $29,725 in restitution.

In the latest case, the charges against Chromey say the crimes were committed between January 2006 and July 2009. The plea deal says Chromey has agreed to pay $764,758 in restitution. The first $100,000 of that sum must be paid at the time of his plea. The remaining restitution will be paid in accordance with a schedule that will be determined by the court. The maximum sentence for the crime is one year in prison and a $100,000 fine. The U.S. Attorney’s Office has agreed to recommend a lesser sentence based on Chromey’s agreement to plead guilty.

Contacted Monday, Pacovsky said he hadn’t spoken to Calabro in quite some time but was not expecting to hear anything like this about her. “She was a good, kind person, she really was,” he said. “I was very surprised when I heard about it.” In January, he was sentenced to one year in the county’s Intermediate Punishment Program on a charge of delivery of a controlled substance. The first four months of his sentence were ordered to be served on house arrest with an electronic monitor. According to court records, Calabro also has a criminal history. In June 2000, Calabro pleaded guilty to a single count of prostitution. Wilkes-Barre police said an undercover officer solicited Calabro for sex acts in November1999. Calabro told the officer prices for each, and when the officer agreed, Calabro was arrested. Calabro had been sentenced, but that was revoked when she violated the terms of her one-year probationary sentence by not reporting her prescription drug use to her probation officer. She was resentenced in October 2000 to 40 days to one year in county prison, but was paroled immediately by former Judge Michael Conahan. In 1999, Calabro was charged with writing bad checks to both Walmart and Conyngham Tobacco. Two charges were dismissed, while the outcome of the remaining charges was unknown Mon-

“There have been lots of debates about what should and shouldn’t be cut, but this project is moving forward.” Nearly $14 million was poured into the park during the last two years to build a new ice skating facility with commercial and retail space, and for other improvements. Now, construction will begin this spring of a new playground, a pavilion and the long-awaited splash pad – returning water fun to the park that once housed an Olympic-sized swimming pool. The pool was not part of the renovation plan because, Leighton said, it was cost-prohibitive to repair and maintain. A splash pad is an area for water play that has no standing water and doesn’t require a lifeguard or other supervision, he said. Phase I will also include side-

day. Calabro was a resident at the Gabriel House on William Street in Pittston, a transitional housing project for women and young children who have been homeless. Project Director Anne Marie McCawley said the facility reopened in 2005 after renovations were made on the building, originally built in 1864 and run by Catholic Social Services and the Diocese of Scranton. The diocese said the building has16 apartments available to residents referred from agencies that confirm they are homeless. Residents are interviewed before being accepted and there is a zero tolerance for drugs and alcohol.

McCawley said there are 14 women and four children living at the facility and residents are allowed to stay there for two years. McCawley said residents are required to “work toward goals that would make them independent,” including holding jobs. McCawley said residents pay a monthly fee to stay in their apartments based on their income. “Lilly was a great person. Her life was all about her daughter and her grandson.

walk improvements, electrical upgrades, and new basketball courts. It should be completed sometime in the fall. Casey said projects such as Coal Street are vital to cities. “This is an investment not just for today, but tomorrow as well,” he said. “It’s an investment in this neighborhood, this city and an investment in the future.” The funding was approved in the 2010 Appropriations Committee budget and comes as the country is “coming out of a very difficult economy,” the senator said. “This is the right kind of investment,” he said. “There are a lot of priorities out there and projects like this, where children and families benefit, should always be a top priority.” Cities such as Wilkes-Barre will be feeling the pinch of cuts projected for the Community Development Block Grant Program, Casey said. He said the city could lose as much as $1 million, and across the state more than $189 million will be lost.

Phase II of the Coal Street revitalization project will begin some time this fall. The softball fields will be upgraded, the rear parking lot will be extensively remodeled, and the multipurpose field will be resurfaced to accommodate football, soccer, field hockey and lacrosse. Leighton said that when the project is complete, Coal Street Park will be one of the premier athletic facilities in Northeastern Pennsylvania and an attractive site for athletic tournaments as well as community and entertainment events. The project was funded by a federal Economic Development Initiative appropriation secured with strong support by Casey. “This project is another piece of Wilkes-Barre’s ongoing revitalization under Mayor Leighton’s leadership,” Casey said. “The project will create jobs in the short-term and will provide children and families with a first-class facility once it is completed. I am proud to be a part of this initiative and will con-

tinue to support local economic development efforts in Northeastern Pennsylvania.” Leighton, who is running for reelection this year, said the project will greatly benefit the residents of the city and beyond. “With the help of private organizations and many elected officials -- especially Sen. Casey -- we have been able to completely revitalize in just over two years a park that had been abandoned and blighted for seven years,” Leighton said. Coal Street Park is the secondlargest park in the city and sits along a main artery that is being widened to five lanes at an estimated cost of $12 million. “Before the renovation, this was a deserted park that had become an eyesore and an anchor-weight on future development,” Leighton said. “The revitalization of the park was crucial to the growth and revitalization of the city.”

Boy Furniture Galleries offices. This option would cost an estimated $3.79 million, Cowder said, because of the $1.65 million purchase asking price and $1 million in renovations. The committee voted Monday to publicly seek more proposals to see if any other building owners in the area are interested in leasing or selling property to the county, particularly those with structures built within the last

20 years. The group agreed that properties in a 15-minute drive to the courthouse would be acceptable because the county will eventually need a courier to pick up and deliver records to county offices. The property should be around 18,000 to 20,000 square

feet and would not have to be a warehouse, Cowder said. The new records center would be a hub for genealogy researchers and title searchers to access county marriage licenses, wills and other records, preventing the need for the public to visit multiple county offices, officials say.

WILKES-BARRE – City Council recently passed an ordinance that revised the residential permit parking program. All participants in the residential permit parking program will be required to come to City Hall to renew or apply for a permit parking pass for the year 2011 by April 15. The fee for the residential permit parking pass will be $7.50 and will be valid for one calendar year. Permit parking passes are limited to two per household and one guest pass per parking permit. The registration fee for

the parking permit will be prorated for the remainder of this year to $6. Participants are asked to register with the Code Enforcement Office. Zone 1 registration begins today and Zones 2 and 3 registration starts March 29. It could take 48 hours to process the registration and produce the parking permit. Participants must show a valid Pennsylvania driver’s license and provide their name, address and license plate number to receive a parking permit pass. Anyone with questions should call 208-1629.

Scarnati, both Jefferson County Republicans, said they had not seen the lawsuit, and a spokeswoman for Corbett released a two-sentence statement in response. "The lawsuit is without merit and will be successfully defended in court," the Corbett administration said. AdultBasic coverage ended amid partisan finger pointing over who was to blame and the state government facing a projected multibillion-dollar deficit. Corbett has said the state doesn’t have the money to continue paying for adultBasic, and he instead proposed diverting money from the tobacco settlement into the state’s main bank account. The state’s Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurers, who have paid for the lion’s share of adultBasic in recent years, have decided against continuing to pay for it and the Legislature made no move to extend it.

The plaintiffs’ lawyer, Bill Caroselli, told reporters in a conference call that the Legislature and the executive branch had no legal power to end the program. "It is not discretionary, and the Legislature and executive branch must fund this program," Caroselli said. The program was created by a 2001 law, which also calls for the state to annually set aside up to 30 percent of money it receives from its 1998 settlement with major cigarette manufacturers. The state is scheduled to receive another approximately $370 million in April. Spokesmen for Smith and

DALLAS TWP. -- A Dallas Township zoning hearing scheduled for Monday evening to decide whether a natural gas company can build a metering station near the Dallas School District campus has been rescheduled for next month. The hearing for Chief Gathering LLC’s application for special zoning exceptions has been postponed until 7 p.m. April 4 in the DallasMiddleSchoolauditorium. Chief submitted plans to the township in late February to build ameteringfacilityabout1,300feet from the four Dallas schools. Plans include the construction of two metering buildings, two flow control buildings, a 100-foot radio tower, an 8,000-gallon mercaptan tank and a 10-foot flare to be used two to four times a year. Township Zoning Officer Leo-

He said one of the company’s engineers was unable to attend the March 14 meeting, and after exchanging availabledates,Kozickandtheengineer had settled on April 4 last Thursday. The meeting was originally supposed to be in the township municipal building at 601 Tunkhannock Highway.

OUR OPINION: BEE WINNER

Defining moment for true scholar

W

ball games and other athletic events. When it comes to school competitions, Roy sports inevitably top the popularity chart. We don’t begrudge young athletes their spotlights, but academic events deserve attention, too. The students who participate often work as hard as those in the more physical pursuits, putting in long hours of practice, honing technique and timing, drilling in the basics until they are executed perfectly every time. Roy, for example, has a constant methodology in her bees, asking for definitions and language of origin, pausing to collect her thoughts and “writing” the word on her hand with her index finger as she spells. So here is to Sukanya Roy, a beacon in our education system. And here’s to all the other spellers who stood before the microphone and dared to dream of a national title. And here’s to all those youngsters who compete in other events too often unheralded, including geography bees, National History Day, Math Counts and the Science Olympiad, to name a few. Forgive us for getting punny, but it’s true: They make us bee-lieve in our area’s future.

E PAUSE IN a world overloaded with bleak news of civil war in Libya, escalating gas prices and epic tragedy in Japan to look briefly on a local bright spot, three-time regional spelling bee champion Sukanya (Sue) Roy. The 13-year-old Abington Heights student weathered a wilting 29 rounds – 90 minutes of nearly nonstop spelling – Sunday to capture her third consecutive trip to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. The word that won it for her this year: “Apparatchik,” derived from Russian and meaning a communist secret agent. And remember, the Cold War was over and the Berlin Wall down before she was even born. Roy has represented our region well, coming in 12th and 28th in her two previous trips to the nation’s capital. After winning the regional bee, she promised “this year I’ll try to go all the way.” We’re rooting for her, and not because the regional bee is sponsored by The Times Leader, nor because this newspaper picks up some of the tab for her trip. No, we’re rooting for her because these competitions of wits too often wither in obscurity, forever the poor cousin to the brawny battles on football field, board-pounding basket-

QUOTE OF THE DAY “People talk about cutting waste, fraud and abuse. We’ve done it.” Haley Barbour Mississippi’s two-term governor spoke in Chicago on Monday, touting his accomplishments while in office: tackling a budget deficit without raising taxes and passing a tort reform law. Barbour is among a field of likely Republican presidential contenders, although no one has yet announced his or her candidacy.

OTHER OPINION: SCHOOL DISTRICTS

Bill would allow layoff flexibility

S

TATE LAW THAT prevents school districts from laying off employees when they cannot afford to pay them puts taxpayers in a tight spot. House Bill 855 is designed to loosen things up, but the devil will be in the details. The bill, offered by Rep. Scott Boyd, R-Lancaster County, has support from 35 lawmakers and Gov. Tom Corbett, who mentioned the effort in his budget address last week. Under present law, school districts are permitted to reduce the staff when enrollment drops substantially or a merger renders some employees unnecessary. HB 855 would expand the rules to include economic reasons when a district’s needs exceed the amount of a tax increase it could impose without going to the voters in a referendum. It also would require that any savings be used to offset costs or

cut taxes. This makes sense and would give districts facing deep funding cuts more flexibility. The second section of the bill is more problematic, but still workable. It would allow districts to consider teacher performance, not just seniority, in deciding who is let go. While the provision promises to serve the cause of good education, its success will hinge on the kind of layoff criterion set by individual districts. Because favoritism, nepotism and petty squabbles can influence school hirings and firings, such plans have to be fair to employees while putting the interests of students first. If districts respond with effective policies, their students, even in a time of short resources, have a chance to be left with the best teachers. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Pennsylvania farmers feed hungry around the world WHILE MANY people will be celebrating their Irish heritage (whether they are Irish or not) later this week on St. Patrick’s Day, we hope they will take a moment to reflect upon the hard work and productivity of farm families on “National Agriculture Day,” which will be celebrated today. Farms of all types and sizes in Pennsylvania are producing safe, high-quality and affordable food, while carefully tending to their animals, crops and land. Pennsylvania farmers produce food for consumers in the commonwealth and large population centers in the Northeast, but the fruits of their labor are not limited to the United States. In fact, food and fiber from our farms tops the list as Pennsylvania’s No. 1 export to countries around the world. Pennsylvania’s agricultural exports have increased significantly over a short period, growing by 50 percent since 2005. Among those shipments, international sales of our livestock and poultry products have increased about 80 percent.

MAIL BAG

CARL T. SHAFFER Why is this so vitally important to our farm families – and for that matter – all Pennsylvanians? First, like all businesses, farmers need expanding markets for what we produce and sell. Worldwide markets tend to level out the peaks and valleys of consumer demand, which is often caused by economic conditions. Market uncertainty is not a friend to agriculture. Depending upon the commodity, farmers have to plan and invest years in advance before their harvests. Our risks are complicated by the fact that many agricultural commodities are perishable. Farmers can suffer severe financial losses if what we produce is not consumed within a relatively short period. The export of agricultural products provides farmers some risk reduction as well as opportunity to expand our enterprises.

Second, agricultural exports help our nation to achieve a better balance of trade with other countries, which is essential to the future health of our economy and value of the American dollar. Also, food for a hungry world from America’s farmers contributes to effective foreign policy that can help nurture peace and prosperity around the globe. Pennsylvania’s farmers are exporting more of what we produce while not shortchanging consumers here at home. When opportunities for agriculture expand, investments and efficiencies in food production expand rather than shrink. With these thoughts in mind, please join with Pennsylvania’s farm families in celebration of National Agriculture Day. Carl T. Shaffer is president of the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau.

Interim judges should be allowed to run for bench

have been asked to write this letter by people who do not understand why interim judges have been asked to abstain from running for a permanent appointment to the Luzerne County bench. I didn’t think anyone in this country had to get permission to run for an elected office. In these times of internal turmoil in our county government, is there a good reason for a few politicians to evoke a promise from talented public servants to relinquish an opportunity to serve in a more permanent capacity? One case in point is Judge Joseph Cosgrove. My son, Glenn, served on a jury in his court a few weeks ago and was so impressed by Judge Cosgrove that he is still praising him today. Cosgrove greeted the jurors warmly, made sure all understood their responsibilities and called them together again to thank them when they had completed their duty. I know he would be a credit to the judicial system if he were to be returned to the bench. I read every article on this subject in detail and found no stated reason for this forced “promise” not to run. Perhaps I am missing something, but it seems undemocratic, for starters, but also inefficient, controlling and without foresight. If there is something that I don’t understand about the relationship of a democra-

Writer feels court system favors ‘deadbeat’ fathers

C

an someone from the Luzerne County Domestic Relations Department or the county courthouse explain to me why a “deadbeat” father, who owes almost $4,000 in back child support, goes into a contempt hearing and then is allowed to be free? He has no money to pay child support, yet he apparently has money to pay lawyers to represent him at these hearings and to buy airline tickets. All I ask for is an explanation. The current system does not seem to work equally for all. Once again, the rights of the children suffer. Charles Gordon Nanticoke

when she woke up Friday morning and heard about the disaster, her heart raced and she logged onto her computer to find a Facebook message from her son. The message’s subject line was short and simple but put Mickie at ease. “We’re OK, love.” In the slightly longer message, Michael told his mother that he’s sure she had heard about what happened in Japan and that while his second-floor apartment shook and there were some aftershocks that were still being felt, he and Gillian were OK. On Saturday, mother and son finally were able to speak via the

video messaging program Skype. “I love Skype,” Mickie said, noting the two have had regular video chat sessions each Saturday while he’s been in the Far East. “That’s what made it easier for me.” Mickie said that while her husband, John, a captain with the Wilkes-Barre fire department, is glued to television and Internet news reports about the goings on in Japan, she’s trying to keep her mind off it. She said her husband is “keeping it all in,” but she knows how concerned he is. “He’s nervous. How could you not be? We just want them home,” Mickie said. John said his worries were calmed immediately when his wife told him that Michael sent a message saying they were fine and how far away from the epicenter they lived.

He said his wife is doing enough worrying for the two of them. “That’s the way moms are,” he said, adding the communication between his son and his wife is making things a bit easier to cope with while they’re more than 6,000 miles apart. Though Michael and Gillian were unscathed by the earthquake, the tsunami it triggered and the dozens of aftershocks and subsequent smaller earthquakes that have been felt in Japan, there is still the potential for trouble. Michael told his mother that there is fear that Mount Fuji, the nation’s tallest mountain, which also happens to be a volcano, could erupt. Though it’s still far enough away from their apartment, there is concern about ash and getting an airplane out of Japan back to the U.S. when they’re set to leave on March 29.

Mickie said she knows how many other parents lost children or don’t know their whereabouts and called herself “considerably lucky.” “I can’t even tell you how blessed we are,” Mickie said, noting her daughter-in-law’s assignment could have been anywhere in the country, including in the region closest to the earthquake. While over there, Mickie said her son and his wife, both of whom are 26 and 2003 Meyers High School graduates, have had a great time and enjoyed their experience, which was already shaping up to be a memorable one. Now, it’s become “an experience they’ll never forget,” Mickie said. DON CAREY/THE TIMES LEADER

This is the worst nuclear crisis Japan has faced since the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said the reactor, even though it was unoperational, was believed to be the source of the elevated radiation release because of the hydrogen release that triggered the fire. “Now we are talking about levels that can damage human health. These are readings taken near the area where we believe the releases are happening. Far away, the levels should be lower,” he said. “Please do not go outside. Please stay indoors. Please close windows and make your homes airtight. Don’t turn on ventilators. Please hang your laundry indoors,” he said. “These are figures that potentially affect health, there is no mistake about that,” he said. The radiation level around one of the reactors stood at 400,000 microsiverts per hour, four times higher than the safe level. Officials said 50 workers are still there trying to put water into the reactors to cool them. They say 800 other nonessential staff were evacuated Compounding the disaster, water levels dropped precipitously inside a Japanese nuclear reactor, twice leaving the uranium fuel rods completely exposed and raising the threat of a meltdown. The death toll from last week’s earthquake and tsunami jumped Tuesday as police confirmed the number killed had topped 2,400. Police said Tuesday that a big share of the deaths were in Miyagi prefecture, where 1,254 people are confirmed dead. Officials have said previously that at least 10,000 people may have died in Miyagi province alone. A third explosion in four days rocked the earthquake-damaged nuclear plant in northeast Japan earlier Tuesday, the country’s nuclear safety agency said. The blast at Dai-ichi Unit 2 followed two hydrogen explosions at the plant — the latest on Monday. The number of people officially missing is at 3,118. But regional officials said they believe that tens of thousands may have been swept away by the tsunami that devastated a long stretch of Ja-

pan’s northeastern coast Friday. Hundreds of dead have washed ashore on Japan’s devastated northeast coast since last week’s earthquake and tsunami. Others were dug out of the debris Monday by firefighters using pickaxes and chain saws. Funeral homes and crematoriums are overwhelmed, and officials have run out of body bags and coffins. On the economic front, Japan’s stock market plunged over the likelihood of huge losses by Japanese industries including big names such as Toyota and Honda. The troubles at the Dai-ichi complex began when Friday’s massive quake and tsunami in Japan’s northeast knocked out power, crippling cooling systems needed to keep nuclear fuel from melting down. The latest explosion was heard early Tuesday, a spokesman for the Nuclear Safety Agency said at a news conference. The plant’s owner, Tokyo Electric Power Co., said the explosion occurred near the suppression pool in the reactor’s containment vessel. The pool was later found to have a defect. International scientists have said there are serious dangers but not at the level of the 1986 blast in Chernobyl. Japanese authorities were injecting seawater as a coo-

lant of last resort. The accidents at the plant injured 15 workers and military personnel and exposed up to 190 people to elevated radiation. Meanwhile, the Tokyo government struggles to help hundreds of thousands of people affected by twin disasters that flattened entire communities. Japanese authorities have evacuated tens of thousands of people from around affected reactors. Prevailing winds were pointing

out to sea, and U.S. ships assisting tsunami recovery moved further way to avoid potential danger. Miyagi prefecture bore the full force of Friday’s tsunami, and police said 1,000 bodies were found scattered across its coast. The Kyodo news agency reported that 2,000 bodies washed up on two shorelines in Miyagi. Most Japanese opt to cremate their dead, and with so many bodies, the government on Monday waived a rule requiring permis-

sion first from local authorities before cremation or burial to speed up funerals, said Health Ministry official Yukio Okuda. “The current situation is so extraordinary, and it is very likely that crematoriums are running beyond capacity,” said Okuda. “This is an emergency measure. We want to help quake-hit people as much as we can.” The town of Soma has only one crematorium that can handle 18 bodies a day, said an official, Katsuhiko Abe. “We are overwhelmed and are asking other cites to help us deal with bodies,” Abe told The Associated Press. Millions of people spent a fourth night with little food, water or heating in near-freezing temperatures as they dealt with the loss of homes and loved ones. Asia’s richest country hasn’t seen such hardship since World War II. Hajime Sato, a government official in Iwate prefecture, one of the hardest hit, said deliveries of supplies were just 10 percent of what is needed. Body bags and coffins were running so short that the government may turn to foreign funeral homes for help, he said. The pulverized coast has been hit by hundreds of aftershocks, the latest one a 6.2 magnitude quake that was followed by a new tsunami scare Monday.

Crisis in Japan prompts U.S. to review its nuclear policies

W-B bus crashes on N.J. Turnpike

Nearly a quarter of America’s plants have the same design as the Japanese ones.

The Associated Press

By ROB HOTAKAINEN, RENEE SCHOOF and MARGARET TALEV McClatchy Newspapers

WASHINGTON — As Japan copes with one crisis after another at its Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex, a review of federal records indicates that nearly a quarter of America’s nuclear reactors in 13 states share the same design of the ill-fated Japanese reactors. The plants, called Mark I Boiling Water Reactors, were designed by General Electric. GE, which is donating $5 million to Japan for its relief effort, said Monday it was too early to assess what produced the problems at the complex.

On Monday, the Japanese blasts prompted calls for an immediate review of the 104 nuclear plants now operating in the United States, including many aging facilities, to see if they could withstand a gut-punch by nature that would kill the electricity, cripple the cooling system and threaten a nuclear meltdown. The Japanese crisis, and the potential scrutiny of America’s reactors, comes as the nuclear industry seemingly had won a new lease on life. After decades as an orphan technology shuttered by the meltdown at Three Mile Island in Pennsylvania, rising concerns about global warming, the need to curb carbon pollution and a quest for more electric production to fuel economic expansion buoyed nuclear fortunes. GOP lawmakers in the House of Representatives even proposed tripling U.S. nuclear production by building 200 new

plants in the next 19 years. Now, that all seems at risk. With the Fukushima complex still making headlines, White House officials sought to assure the public that there’s nothing to worry about. “The U.S. power plants are designed to very high standards for earthquake effects,” said Gregory Jaczko, chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. “All our plants are designed to withstand significant natural phenomena, like earthquakes, tornadoes, and tsunamis.” Five of the six reactors at the Japanese plant use the same General Electric reactor that are at 23 nuclear plants in North Carolina, Georgia, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Alabama, Nebraska, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Massachusetts and Vermont, according to a database maintained by the NRC. All but two of them began oper-

ating in the 1970s. “These need to be examined,” said Michael Mariotte, executive director of the Nuclear Information and Resource Service, an anti-nuclear organization. “When the reactor designs are the same, and the reactor’s ages are the same, comparisons seem more than appropriate.” On Capitol Hill, some are calling for a halt to further nuclear development in the U.S. Rep. Ed. Markey of Massachusetts, the top-ranked Democrat on the House Natural Resources Committee, called for a moratorium on new reactors in seismically active areas until a new safety review is completed. In addition, Markey joined three other Democrats in asking the House GOP to conduct a hearing on the safety of U.S. nuclear plants. Independent Sen. Joe Liebermann of Connecticut, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Se-

curity Committee, said it was time to “quickly put the brakes on” the U.S. industry. But in a speech on the Senate floor, Tennessee Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander came to the nuclear industry’s defense: “Without nuclear power, it is hard to imagine how the United States could produce enough cheap, reliable, clean electric to keep our economy moving and to keep our jobs from going overseas.” Any reactor design today faced with the combination of an earthquake and a tsunami would likely be in a similar situation as the plant in Japan, said David Lochbaum, a nuclear engineer who directs the Union of Concerned Scientists’ nuclear safety program. Reactors are built to withstand an earthquake or a tsunami, but not both on the same day, he said: “We’ll have to go back and revisit that and see if we can do better.”

EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. — A luxury bus, operated by a company from Wilkes-Barre, crashed Monday night on one of the nation’s most heavily trafficked highways, killing the driver and another person, police said. Monday’s crash of the luxury bus, which was carrying 25 to 30 people, sent five people to a hospital’s trauma ward and left several others with minor injuries, state police said. The bus driver was thrown through the windshield, they said. The vehicle was operated by Super Luxury Tours Inc., police said. As of presstime, a company by the name had not been located. The bus was carrying 25 to 30, left several with minor injuries, state police said. The bus driver was thrown through the windshield, they said.

Offensive and defensive line

Lions’ success hinges on play in trenches Editor’s note This is the third of a four-part series previewing Penn State spring practice, which opens Wednesday. Today’s installment looks at the Nittany Lions’ offensive and defensive line. Tomorrow Linebackers and the secondary.

By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

Injuries and inconsistency on both the offensive and defensive lines haunted Penn State in 2010. Not coincidentally, the Nittany Lions had their worst season in their past six, finishing 7-6. With three starters returning on each side, Penn State heads into spring ball hoping to improve in the trenches. OFFENSIVE TACKLES Both starters on the outside return. Before last year, however, neither Quinn Barham nor

Chima Okoli played these positions since high school. Barham had shuffled between guard and center in his first three seasons in Happy Valley before being appointed the starting left tackle last spring. Okoli had started his college career at defensive tackle but found himself starting at right tackle on offense after Lou Eliades was lost for the year with an ACL injury early last season. Among those pushing for time will be Eric Shrive, who has also worked in at guard. There was definitely some

disappointment from the West Scranton grad when the coaches chose Mike Farrell over him to fill in on the first team against Indiana late in the season.

Finals defeat shouldn’t dim Popple’s year

H

e stood despondently on the medal stand shaking his head back and forth, as if trying to erase what just happened as merely a bad dream. But the nightmare wasn’t going away for Josh Popple. His visions of grandeur were shattered, and so was he. The care-free kid from Coughlin once insisted his free-spirited demeanor would always be on display – win or lose. Yet, Popple could barely keep his melancholy eyes from falling to the floor as he accepted second place. “Not hurt. Just extremely distraught,” Popple said as he was, remembering how he brought his hands to his face in dismay on the wrestling mat. “It wasn’t the ideal ending.” He was sure he was going to end this drought, and become the first state champion in Coughlin’s wresting history. Popple breezed through the 189pound bracket to the PIAA Class 3A finals, running his record for his senior season to 44-0 after the state semifinals Saturday morning at Hershey’s Giant Center. It gave him a chance at the redemption he was seeking against Kenny Courts, who ended Popple’s gold medal thoughts in last year’s 171-pound state quarterfinals. They met in a rematch for the 189-pound state title Saturday night. In 38 seconds it was all over. Popple’s undefeated season. His state title quest. His hopes of being first on Coughlin’s championship wall by being first in the state. They were all gone because Courts, a Central Dauphin star who won last year’s PIAA title, became a two-time state champ by using a fireman’s carry to pin Popple for the second straight season. “It’s tragic,” Coughlin coach Steve Stahl said. It shows how quickly things can change with sports in general and with wrestling in particular. “The highs and lows are extremes,” Stahl said. “One minute you’re on top of your game.” Less than a minute may leave you down in the dumps. Popple dumped Kiski Area’s Matt McCutcheon 7-2 in the semifinals. It gave him the school’s single-season victory record of 44, to go along with the single-season pin record of 31 he already held. Then Popple began plotting his gold medal path. “We know Courts is really aggressive and he’s very good on his feet,” said his father Mark Popple, a former area wrestling star for Coughlin and Wilkes. “Josh is good on top, we know he can go a full six minutes. Courts, he tries to get everything done quickly.” The idea was for Popple to push his opponent the distance, and punish him with points late in the match. But it never got that far. A large Coughlin contingent barely began generating a chant of “Let’s go Popple,” when the referee slammed his hand to the mat. “I knew he was going to be tough, he’s pretty quick,” Popple said. “I guess I didn’t react as fast as I needed to.” What he needs to do now is hold his head high with pride, after joining Bill Pfeffer and Chuck Chulada as Coughlin’s only state finalists and becoming the school’s first silver medalist in 36 years. “Everyone’s goal is to be on that number one podium,” Popple said. “In the long run, finishing second is a great accomplishment in itself. A lot of kids would want to be there.” It is where the will of champions stand through heartache and heartbreak, never feeling great until they take one more step.

SPRING TRAINING

NHL ROUNDUP

Bailey’s early exit a concern for A’s

Hossa nets a pair as Blackhawks win

GOODYEAR, Ariz. — The Oakland Athletics can only hope that closer Andrew Bailey isn’t seriously hurt. Bailey faced three batters in his second spring outing Monday and left a 9-8 loss to the Cleveland Indians with discomfort in his elbow. The right-hander had surgery at the end of last season to remove bone chips and bone spurs from the elbow. The A’s said Bailey will be examined by Dr. James Andrews in Alabama on Tuesday. Chris Carter had three RBIs on two home runs for Oakland, including a thundering shot off the scoreboard well beyond the left-field fence. A’s starter Dallas Braden allowed six runs — four earned — in four innings. Travis Hafner drove in two runs with two doubles for Cleveland. Indians starter Justin Masterson gave up five runs over four innings. He struck out four without a walk.

CHICAGO — Marian Hossa scored two power-play goals less than 3 minutes apart to ignite a five-goal outburst by Chicago in the second period, and the Blackhawks rolled to a 6-3 win over the San Jose Sharks on Monday night. Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane each had a goal and an assist in the second as Chicago snapped an 0-1-2 streak and moved into fourth place in the Western Conference with 84 points.

Phillies 7, Astros 6 KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Cole Hamels threw a pair of brushback pitches to Bill Hall in a spring training game that got testy. Apparently annoyed when the Houston infielder stepped out of the batter’s box during his delivery, Hamels threw up and in to Hall a couple of times in the second inning. Hall shouted at Hamels and was held back by plate umpire Laz Diaz, who stepped in front of Hall and issued a warning to both benches. But that was the extent of it. Carlos Lee, Chris Johnson and Jason Michaels homered off Hamels, who could not get out of the fourth inning.

innings. Washington starter Jason Marquis also had a good day, striking out four while allowing three hits and one run over five innings. Twins 9, Marlins 0 FORT MYERS, Fla. — Kevin Slowey kept pace in his bid for the final spot in Minnesota’s rotation, throwing four shutout innings against Florida. Slowey, competing with fellow right-hander Scott Baker to be the fifth starter, struck out three and gave up two hits. Nick Blackburn, already penciled into the Twins’ rotation to start the season, threw three scoreless innings in relief against a Marlins team that left most of its regulars at home. Danny Valencia and Luke Hughes homered for Minnesota. Brewers 12, Giants 8 SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Matt Cain pitched three hitless innings in his first appearance since San Francisco’s spring opener, but Milwaukee rallied for six runs off Jeff Suppan. Cain had not pitched in a game since Feb. 27 due to inflammation in his right elbow. He gave up three hits and struck out one.

Aubrey Huff and Pablo Sanchez homered for the Giants. Rangers 5, Dodgers 4 SURPRISE, Ariz. — Adrian Beltre went 1 for 3 in his spring debut and Josh Hamilton hit his first home run to power Texas past Los Angeles. Beltre, who signed a six-year, $96 million contract with Texas in January, missed the first 15 games because of a strained right calf. He ran hard on a third-inning grounder, then singled in the fifth before giving way to a pinch runner. Hamilton hit a three-run homer off Dodgers starter James Ely. Texas starter Neftali Feliz

scattered three hits and a run over four innings with a walk and five strikeouts. After the game Feliz, the AL Rookie of the Year as a closer last season, said he’s working for a spot in the rotation. Last week, he said he was more comfortable closing. Mariners 5, Cubs 3 PEORIA, Ariz. — Matt Garza had a positive outing for his new team, pitching four solid innings in Chicago’s loss to Seattle. Acquired from Tampa Bay this winter in an eight-player trade, Garza had struggled in two of his first three appearances with the Cubs. He was much better against the Mariners, giving up a run and three hits with three strikeouts and two walks. Padres 7, White Sox 6 GLENDALE, Ariz. — Jake Peavy felt good over four innings against his former team, but the Chicago White Sox lost to San Diego. Peavy threw 67 pitches, 47 for strikes, in his third start of the spring. He allowed three runs and six hits, struck out two and walked a batter. Aaron Harang started for San Diego, allowing two runs — one earned — over four innings. He had allowed seven runs over five innings in his last two Cactus League starts. Rockies 3, Reds 2 SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Jhoulys Chacin pitched five sharp innings and Colorado beat Cincinnati on Jose Lopez’s single in the bottom of the ninth. Red Sox 2, Yankees 1 FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Boston Red Sox showed off their much-improved bullpen, shutting down the New York Yankees in their second and final meeting of spring training. Five relievers followed exYankee Alfredo Aceves to the mound, combining for six shutout innings. New setup man Bobby Jenks earned the win, striking out one in a one-hit sixth. In five spring outings, he has not allowed a run.

NBA ROUNDUP

New Jersey beats Boston for 5th straight win Nuggets 114, Hornets 103 NEW ORLEANS — Ty Lawson scored 23 points and the Denver Nuggets combined for 17 3-pointers in a victory over the New Orleans Hornets on Monday night. Raymond Felton added 22 points, hitting six 3s for Denver, while J.R. Smith hit five 3s and finished with 18 points.

The Associated Press

NEWARK, N.J. — Brook Lopez scored 20 points, Deron Williams added 16 and made the clinching 3-pointer, and the New Jersey Nets extended their longest winning streak in three years to five games with an 88-79 victory over the Boston Celtics on Monday night. Kris Humphries had 16 points and 15 rebounds, following his strong performance against Blake Griffin by turning in one against Kevin Garnett to help the Nets snap a nine-game home losing streak against the Celtics. New Jersey has won five in a row overall for the first time since late December-early January in the 2007-08 season. Ray Allen scored 19 points and Garnett had 18 for the Celtics, who couldn’t overcome horrible shooting nights from All-Stars Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo and fell back into a tie with Chicago for the best record in the Eastern Conference. A night after allowing a franchise low in the shot clock era in an 87-56 victory over Milwaukee, the Celtics wasted a good defensive effort with a bad offensive one. Pierce was 2 of 10 for seven points, while Rondo

points. He scored 40 in the previous meeting between the two teams on Jan. 28. Heat 110, Spurs 80 MIAMI — Chris Bosh scored 30 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 29 and the Miami Heat avenged their worst loss of the season by rolling past the NBA-leading San Antonio Spurs.

Rockets 95, Suns 93 HOUSTON — Kevin Martin scored 23 points, Chuck Hayes had a career-high 21 points and nine rebounds and the Houston Rockets snapped a seven-game losing streak to Phoenix with a win over the Suns. Jazz 112, Sixers 107 SALT LAKE CITY -- Al Jefferson scored 30 points as the Jazz defeated the Sixers in overtime. Grizzlies 105, Clippers 82 MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Zach Randolph had 30 points and 12 rebounds to help the Memphis Grizzlies snap a two-game skid with a victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.

COLLEGE LACROSSE

Manes ties Monarch record WILKES-BARRE – Chelsea Manes tied a school-record with 10 points and 10 different King’s players scored in a 26-1 win over Cedar Crest College Monday afternoon in women’s lacrosse. The 26 goals broke a school record for most goals in one game, surpassing the previous mark of 25 set in 2006 against Chestnut Hill College. The win also snapped a 34-game losing skid for King’s over the past three seasons and the team did in its first game of 2011. The Lady Monarchs took a commanding 14-1 at halftime then scored 12 unanswered tallies in the second half to post the

non-league victory. Manes was outstanding leading King’s offensive attack finishing with three goals and seven assists in the contest. The seven assists fell one shy of the school mark set by Lindsay Sabo in 2005. Krystina Villarrea followed with six points on five goals and one assist, while Sarah O’Doherty posted five points on five goals in the win. Lea Rivieccio and Andrea Alesso each scored three goals. Catherine McMahon and Amanda Harney added two tallies, while Allison Gourniak, Jessica Ormrod, and Dana Coscia contributed one goal each.

Dyshon Pack, a 6-5 sophomore swing player, also helps out inside. “It’s always better for me to play people my size,” Alexis said. “I feel more confident playing people my size.” Alexis showed that with a strong performance against Neumann-Goretti last season. The Penn State recruit scored 19 points, but Neumann-Goretti was able to limit his overall effectiveness by pushing the tempo. PET has the guards to do that if it desires. Carrington Ward, a 6-3 senior, is the Chargers’ go-to player. The quick-footed Ward averages over 18 points and is coming off a 28-point performance against District 1 third seed Pope John Paul II in a 62-56 first-round win. He is a 1,000-point scorer, having also played at Communications Tech in Philly, and drawing interest from smaller Division I college programs. Devante Chance is Ward’s running mate in the backcourt.

The Panthers’ losses have been 56-49 to prep school Friends Central, 62-61 to Boys and Girls High from New York City and 47-42 to Kimball High of Dallas, Texas. Those three opponents are a combined 82-13. The losses haven’t deterred USA Today from overlooking Imhotep, which jumped from 25th in the nation to 19th after a 78-36 rout of District 3 third seed Wyomissing.

Neither West Scranton’s Tyler Hughes nor Danville’s Andrew Andreychik, two of the region’s top overall athletes, had much success. Redeemer coach Mark Belenski was particularly pleased with the defensive effort in the 60-55 first-round win over Danville. Andreychik took only eight of the Ironmen’s 31 second-half shots, with several coming after Redeemer opened an 11point lead in the fourth quarter. “I thought we played good defense,” Belenski said. “We made them take shots that they didn’t want to. Different kids were taking shots for them.” Tonight’s winner will be going farther than any team in the two schools’ histories, albeit PET has been around just nine years and Redeemer four.

Moore opened the game with two baskets and didn’t score again. Winder had just one field goal in the second half. The Mohawks, though,

approval for further testing. “We’ve got to find a stadium to put the tests in,” Hawkins told The Associated Press. “We also need to check in advance what is wanted, testing-wise. I expect there will be a contractual commitment that we don’t report the information from the tests so we don’t undermine the officials if there is a controversial goal. “Just at the time when we are testing technology that will hopefully help officials in the future, we don’t want Hawk-Eye showing they are wrong.” Hawk-Eye’s ball-tracking technology, which is achieved by positioning cameras around the stadium, has already been successfully deployed in tennis and cricket. But just testing during matches wouldn’t produce enough results to prove to FIFA that HawkEye is capable of accurately and speedily ruling on disputed goals. Due to the minor number of disputed goals in matches, most of the testing on the pitch is likely to take place on non-matchdays. Blatter reversed his opposition to goal-line technology after England was wrongly not awarded a goal at the 2010 World Cup when the ball clearly crossed the line in the last-16 match against Germany. Frank Lampard’s “goal” would have leveled the match at 2-2, but Germany went on to win 4-1.

Huge ticket sales expected for ’12 Games LONDON — Sebastian Coe is predicting massive demand when tickets go on sale to mark the 500-day countdown to next year’s Olympics, another milestone in the multi-billion-dollar project that is changing the face of east London. With a giant countdown clock unveiled Monday night in Trafalgar Square, Coe’s Olympic organizing team is prepared for a heavy crush when 6.6 million tickets are put up for sale online today for the 650 competition sessions across 26 sports. “It’s a big day emotionally,” Coe said in an interview with The Associated Press. “It’s a big day in reality of course.” Coe said the ticket launch marks the third biggest online retail site in history after eBay and Amazon. He said organizers have worked hard to prevent the system from crashing. “I think there’ll be a massive interest,” said Coe, a two-time

Olympic 1,500-meter champion who heads the local organizing committee. “We’ve done everything we can to stress-test the system. I’m not going to sit here and tell you there will be no glitches. I really hope not. This is not without its challenges.” The tickets, ranging in price from $32 to $3,215, are being sold through a single official website. Organizers stress the tickets are not being sold on a firstcome, first-served basis. Customers can apply for tickets over a six-week period ending April 26. Any oversubscribed tickets will be distributed via a ballot or lottery system. Tickets will be allocated by June 24. “You want Madonna, you want cup finals or Super Bowls, you go first-come first-served,” Coe said. “Here, you stand no greater statistical chance” of acquiring tickets on the first day or last day. More than 2.5 million people have already registered interest in buying tickets.

The online process at www.tickets.london2012.com is available for residents of the U.K. and 26 European countries, with Visa the only credit card accepted. Elsewhere, including in the United States, the sales are handled through national Olympic committees. About 1 million tickets will go to non-European overseas buyers, with American fans representing one of the biggest blocs, Coe said. Tickets for many sports start at $32, while the top seats for the

men’s 100-meter final will go for $1,200. Coe said ticket sales are the organizing committee’s “single biggest financial dependency,” projected to raise about $800 million in revenue. Authorities have promised to crack down on any illegal or unauthorized sales. “You do want to get tickets into the hands of the people who really want them,” Coe said. “You don’t want them in the hands of people that see them as something that’s tradable.”

LONDON — Goal-line technology could be coming to the Premier League next season, with Hawk-Eye hoping to test its system during top-level matches for the first time. But with football’s lawmakers yet to allow referees to consult high-tech aids, the trials and results will remain secret. Hawk-Eye founder Paul Hawkins is also concerned that if his system contradicted a ruling on a disputed goal and the results were made public, the matchday officials would be undermined. The sport moved closer to adopting goal-line technology earlier this month after the International Football Association Board approved another year of testing and FIFA president Sepp Blatter declared that it “helps referees.” Hawk-Eye didn’t participate in the tests before IFAB’s annual meeting that all failed to meet the criteria because they weren’t conducted in stadium conditions. Blatter accepts that future tests will have to take place in stadiums and has identified England as a likely location. And Hawkins, whose company was sold to electronics giant Sony Corp. last week, plans to speak to FIFA in the next week to gain

NFL LABOR DISPUTE

Lead negotiator: Owners proposed 10-year contract The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Had enough of the he-said, he-said rancor between the NFL and players? Don’t expect it to go away anytime soon. The outcome of the league’s first work stoppage since 1987 could be decided in court; the first hearing on the players’ request for an injunction to block the owners’ lockout was scheduled for April 6. In the meantime, there probably will be more of the same as Monday, when Kevin Mawae — president of the NFL Players Association, the now-dissolved union — accused the league of spreading “complete falsehoods and complete lies.” New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, on the same conference call as Mawae, said the owners’ final offer Friday “was all a front.” “I think it was all a show, with no real intent to get a deal done, other than just to say they made a proposal — that was no different than anything else that they proposed over the last couple years, couple months, couple weeks,” said Brees, a named plaintiff in the players’ antitrust lawsuit against the league. Brees and Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday, also a member of the players’ executive committee, complained that the players were not given enough time to assess and ask questions about the proposal owners made Friday morning. “It just seems odd you would wait until Friday to put out a 20-point proposal, when each point has a number of different details in it,” Saturday said. The NFL’s lead labor negotiator, Jeff Pash, said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press that Friday’s proposal contained various

new provisions. He said owners offered a 10-year deal. “I was frankly surprised that the (owners’ labor) committee supported an offer as forthcoming as that was,” Pash said. He also said the league would have been willing to agree to a third extension to the collective bargaining agreement, which originally was due to expire at the end of March 3, before two delays. But another extension, he said, “wasn’t really discussed in a serious way, because it was perfectly obvious they weren’t interested.” By the end of Friday, talks broke off, the union announced it no longer would represent players, Brees and others filed suit, and the owners imposed a lockout at midnight. “If they were saying they were not going to negotiate, under any circumstance, after 4 p.m. on Friday, don’t you think you have to ask yourself: Who was it who was in Washington putting on a show?” Pash said. “We answered all the questions they had at the time, and we never put a deadline on it. We’re not the ones who were filing a lawsuit at 5 o’clock,” Pash said. For all the things the owners and players disagree on, the two main sticking points are clear: how much money owners would get up front before dividing the rest of $9 billion in annual revenues with players, and the union’s demand for full financial disclosure. “If we’re going to talk about ’trust,’ maybe you should ask the owners if they trust each other to see each others’ books,” Mawae said. “I think that’s a greater issue than the players trusting the owners.”

The Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE — Penn State may still have its share of doubters, but getting into the NCAA tournament for a game in sunny Arizona makes it much easier for the road-weary Nittany Lions to take the heat. Sprinkled among the well wishes and congratulations on campus Monday from classmates to forward Jeff Brooks were a handful of shocked or angry students. Like it or not, 10th-seeded

least, Happy Valley is Hoops Valley. “It’s sweet,” said Battle, the school’s all-time leading scorer. “It’s super sweet.” Allow the steady senior, who usually doesn’t smile much in front of the cameras, to grin a lot, like he did on Monday. He earned it. Meanwhile, DeChellis was still trying to work out the schedule for the trip. The Nittany Lions will return to practice today, and plan to arrive in Arizona later tonight. It’s just the kind warm destination that will rejuvenate Battle. Thursday’s forecast for Tuscon? Sunny with a high of 87 degrees.

STATE COLLEGE — The Penn State Lady Lions are back in the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2005, and they get to stay home, too, in the first round. Sixth-seeded Penn State (24-9) drew No. 11 seed Dayton (21-11) in an East region firstround game to be played at the Jordan Center in State College. First- and -second round games are played at campus sites. It’s Penn State’s first trip back to the tournament under fourthyear coach Coquese Washington. She was tasked with rebuilding the program after longtime former coach Rene Portland stepped down in 2007. The Lady Lions have made steady progress since then, and the team targeted a return to the NCAAs this season with the school hosting the first two rounds. Mission accomplished for Washington — though she had to wait through about the first 45 minutes of the selection show on ESPN before hearing Penn State’s name called. The draw sets up favorably for a team seeded sixth. If the Lady Lions get past Dayton, they could have a second-round date against No. 3 seed DePaul in Happy Valley. Beyond that, the East regionals would be played

court for the players — though he’s not going to ease up on them too much. “I tell them the time to rest is in April and May,” DeChellis said. “Sure, they’ve played a few games in a few days, but let’s move on. Toughen up and move on. ... I’m ready to go. The staff had to talk me out of practicing today.” These are heady times for Penn State basketball, a program which often has a hard time escaping the shadows of iconic coach Joe Paterno’s football program. Those Lions, by the way, start spring practice this week. Yet there’s been nary a mention of football around town the past couple days. For one week at

Penn State will play No. 7 Temple on Thursday in a West region game in Tucson, Ariz. “I’ve seem some people say, you guys don’t deserve this, and I was like, ‘Then why do you go to this school’,” Brooks said to laughs at a news conference. Nearby, an exhausted Talor Battle, recovering from four games in four days, planted his forehead on his hand and chuckled with a wide grin.

Monday, the Nittany Lions rested. They’ve played in “one-anddone” mode for several weeks now, even before the exhausting yet fruitful four-game run to the Big Ten tournament title game Sunday that cemented their first bid to the NCAAs since 2001. The top-ranked Buckeyes beat Penn State 71-60 for the conference championship. Still, coach Ed DeChellis had other designs for Monday on the plane ride home from Indianapolis. He wanted to practice, though he put it up for a vote to the rest of his coaching staff. DeChellis lost, 5-1, with the head coach the only one in favor of practicing. Finally, a day off the

three-plus hours away in Philadelphia. “Being at home is good for us. We can be in our same routine, stay in our own beds, things won’t be too different,” Washington said. “And we have the benefit of playing in front of our fans, an environment that we’ve been successful in this year.” Penn State is 13-3 at the Jordan Center, though they did lose two of their last three conference games at home. But at Penn State, once a staple of the Top 25, getting back to the tourney is an important step that Washington wanted the team to take this year. The coach and forward Julia Trogele, the team’s only senior and captain, sat next to each other in the middle of the first row, anxiously awaiting for Penn State’s selection. Minutes after the initial burst of elation, Trogele put a hand on Washington’s back and the two leaned forward to talk quietly while the rest of the room buzzed.

on Dec. 30. The two pre-eminent teams in the sport broke off their annual matchup in 2007 in a testy split. The most emotional matchup of the tourney, however, likely will be in the Dallas region with No. 6 Georgia vs. No. 11 Middle Tennessee State,whichisstilldealingwiththe death of teammate Tina Stewart. “The tragedy was most unspeakable and our full committee and shared our thoughts and condolences,” selection committee chairwoman Marilyn McNeil said. “However, what we want to assure everyone is they were considered like everyone in the field. We looked at their body of work and what they had done on the floor over the entire season. They were selected as one of the 33 best atlarge teams in the country.” First up for UConn is former star Jen Rizzotti and her Hartford Hawks, who won the America East title. The two teams have played each other over the last six years but didn’t meet this season. Hartford is winless in 11 meetings against UConn. Baylor and Stanford were the other two No. 1 seeds. It was the second straight No. 1 seed for the Cardinal, who fell to UConn in the

title game last season. The Huskies will be trying for theirthirdconsecutivetitle,matching their run from 2002-04 and Tennessee’s from 1996-98. UConn is one of a record nine Big East teams in the field. The Big East got 11 men’s teams in their field announced Sunday. Auriemma said he’s happy they got nine bids but was surprised Syracuse didn’t get in. “I was hoping that we’d get 10,” he said. “I don’t know what the rationale was for not taking Syracuse.” Unlike the men’s bracket that expanded to 68 teams this year, the womendecidedtostickwith64.Indianapolis will host the Final Four on April 3 and 5. The last time the Final Four was in Indianapolis, Baylor won the championship as a No. 2 seed. The Lady Bears, led by sophomore center Brittney Griner, will face No. 16 Prairie View in their opener on Sunday in the Dallas region. No. 8 Houston will play No. 9 West Virginia, No. 5 WisconsinGreen Bay takes on No. 12 Arkansas-LittleRock,andNo.4Michigan State plays No. 13 Missouri Valley champion Northern Iowa.

Lady Bears will meet for the fourth time this season. Baylor beat Texas A&M by a total of15 points in their three meetings — including a three-point win in the Big 12 title game. Stanford, which opens against UC Davis, could also face UCLA for a fourth time this year. The CardinalswepttheNo.3seedinSpokane three times, but the Bruins had a late lead in the Pac-10 title game on Saturday. Tennessee will open at home in the Dayton region against No. 16 Stetson, which needed a 55-footer at the buzzer to advance to the Atlantic Sun tournament championship game. No. 8 Marquette will play No. 9 Texas in the other game in Knoxville. No. 5 Georgia Tech will play No. 12 Bowling Green and No. 4 Ohio State faces No. 13 Central Florida. The Buckeyes have had a rollercoaster season, winning their first seven games before dropping seven of the next nine. They righted themselves and have won their last nine games capped by a Big Ten tournament title. No. 2 Notre Dame plays No. 15 Utah and No. 7 Arizona State meets No. 10 Temple.

winning this debate. It looks like the majority of contests are sticking with the old way of doing things. From ESPN.com and its pool that drew 5.4 million entries last year to Mark Fehrman of Wausau, Wis., and his pool of about 80 entries, the reasoning was the same: People already were pushing the Thursday deadline, so it just didn’t make any sense to ask them to pick four more games in two less days. “I thought about it all weekend,” said Fehrman, a paper broker who is in his12th year of running his pool. “I considered offering an incentive, maybe an extra point if they got their bracket in on time and got it right. But knowing the group, everyone is going to drag their feet. If there was a deadline of Tuesday, a lot of people might not enter.” Jason Waram, vice president of fantasy games and social media for ESPN.com, said his staff began kicking around this dilemma last summer, shortly after the NCAA decided to expand the field from 65 teams to 68. They also polled some contestants to see what they thought. After what he called “definitely a spirited debate,” the status quo won out. “First and foremost, it was about getting the most people inside and letting them have a chance,” Waram said. “We all know that the more people in this, the more fun it is.” The same was true at Yahoo, which had another thing to consider — its $1 million bonus for accurately picking every game. Considering that no entry has come closer than 56 of 63, there wasn’t much of a push to make the challenge any more difficult, said Edwin Pankau, Yahoo’s senior product manager for fantasy sports. “I read somewhere that getting perfect with 63 is about as likely as winning the Powerball twice in a row,” he said. “Getting perfect with 67 is probably up to 10 times in a row.” In addition to their nationwide contests, ESPN.com and Yahoo also host pools for people who put together a contest among family, friends and coworkers. This year, those pools are limited to the usual 63 games. Waram and Pankau said there may be an option for those smaller pools to switch to a 67-game format next year. In a sampling of more than a dozen pools Monday by The Associated Press, one of the few that bumped up its deadline was in the clubhouse of the Houston Astros. Third baseman Chris Johnson said he and his teammates were scrambling to get their ballots turned in, but they also had extra motivation about this year’s tournament. The Final Four and the championship game are in Houston. “I gotta get home and do some serious research,” Johnson said. “But I’ve got Duke winning it all.” The new tournament format caught plenty of fans and pool organizers by surprise. Since the old play-in game was for a No. 16 seed and the dubious honor of being firstround fodder for the No. 1 overall seed, it was widely assumed the “First Four” games would serve up the fresh meat for all four No. 1 seeds. It wasn’t until the new-look bracket came out Sunday that the masses realized how different things are. Only two of the games will decide No. 16 seeds. The others will decide the No. 11 seed in the Southwest and the No. 12 seed in the East. There are some pretty familiar teams in that mix, too — Clemson vs. Alabama-Birmingham for No. 12 tonight, and Southern Cal vs. Virginia Commonwealth for No. 11 on Wednesday night. So instead of pushing up the ballot deadline, there could be incentive to wait even longer to see which teams snag those 11th and 12th spots, especially since teams in those seeds have a pretty good track record of pulling off upsets. “A lot of the things that we used to do for March Madness, we’ve had to change a little bit,” said Bob Scucci, race and sports book director for Boyd Gaming in Las Vegas.

Tressel apologizes to loyal Buckeye supporters The OSU coach talked to public for first time since being suspended last week. The Associated Press

CANTON, Ohio — Bothered by harsh criticism directed at his cherished coach, Dustin Fox wanted to offer support to Jim Tressel. “He’s my guy,” Fox said as he waited for Ohio State’s embattled coach. “He has helped more people, won more games and done more for the university,” said Fox, a former defensive back for the Buckeyes. “He changed my life, and I’m so far from perfect. I can’t throw stones.” Seconds later, Tressel stopped before entering a crowded restaurant dining room and hugged Fox, who played for him on the Buckeyes’ 2002 national title team. Fox asked Tressel how he was doing after perhaps the most turbulent week of his career. “I’m OK,” Tressel said. Standing before an audience of loyal supporters, Tressel apologized several times Monday during his first public speaking

so being a distraction to Ohio State’s top-ranked basketball team, which enters this week’s NCAA tournament as the No. 1 overall seed. As part of the school-imposed penalties announced last week, Tressel was publicly reprimanded and required to make a public apology. During a news conference last week in Columbus, Tressel never offered any such apology. So, before he was whisked off following the event, Tressel was asked if this speech served as his public repentance. He looked AP PHOTO puzzled. OSU coach Jim Tressel apologized to fans at a luncheon sponsored by the Pro Football Hall of Fame “I’ve tried to apologize all Monday in Canton, Ohio.

He was given a polite standing ovation the moment he entered the room at Tozzi’s on 12th, a restaurant he has visited annually for the luncheon since his days coaching Youngstown State. Along with Fox, former Buckeye players Tim Anderson and Kirk Barton shared the dais. Last week, Tressel was suspended by Ohio State for the first two games next season and fined for failing to notify the school about information he received last April involving two players and questionable activities involving the sale of memorabilia. Five Ohio State players, including star quarterback Terrelle Pryor, were suspended five games in 2011 for selling jerseys and other memorabilia to the owner of a local tattoo parlor, who was under investigation in a federal drug trafficking probe.

The Fed meets

How builders feel

The Federal Reserve’s regularly scheduled meeting on interest rates is likely to be a balancing act. The central bank is still concerned about helping the economy grow. But it’s also seeing inflation becoming a problem. Economists expect the Fed to agree to continue its $600 billion bond-buying program to put more money into the economy. But some Fed officials are concerned about inflation and are likely to dissent.

The National Association of Home Builders releases its housing market index for March. The index is the housing industry’s version of the consumer confidence index – it measures how optimistic builders are about the economy. With unemployment high and a backlog of foreclosed homes still on the market, builders aren’t likely to sound very upbeat. Still, there have been some small signs of change, and spring, the industry’s best season for sales, is almost here.

Gold production continues decline in South Africa

Major gold producer South Africa says its gold production fell to 422,916.58 pounds in the last year in what is an ongoing decline in yields from century-old mines. The Chamber of Mines said Monday that production fell 6.4 percent in 2010. They blamed a 7.6 percent decrease in the average grade mined, leading to a lower yield of some 0.11 ounces for every ton of ore. Gold was discovered in what became Johannesburg in 1886. Gold companies spurred by higher prices are mining at the deepest depths in the world, down to 2 miles. South Africa produced nearly 70 percent of the world’s gold in the 1970s. Production has been falling since and China, Australia and the U.S. now contribute more of the world’s share.

Pilot licenses are checked

Indian authorities have begun checking the licenses of all airline pilots in the country after at least four were found to be flying using fake documents, a top civil aviation official said Monday. Two pilots were arrested last week for using fake certificates to gain licenses, including a pilot with national carrier Air India who falsified his qualifications. The other two pilots were being investigated for irregularities in their flying licenses. The licenses and other documents of all 4,000 pilots flying commercial aircraft in the country will be scrutinized, said India’s director general of civil aviation.

O’Hare expansion OK’d

Officials with the U.S. Department of Transportation say there’s a partial agreement in a long-running dispute between the city of Chicago and two major airlines over the further expansion of O’Hare International Airport. United and American had filed a lawsuit accusing Chicago of violating a lease agreement that gives airlines authority to approve expenditures for capital projects. Chicago Mayor Richard Daley countered that the airlines reneged on a 2001 promise to help see through the overhaul of O’Hare. The $15 billion expansion of O’Hare is a signature project from Daley’s 22 years as mayor. He didn’t run for another term and leaves office this spring.

TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2011

A Brookings Institute report released Monday shows that the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre metropolitan region – and most of the rest of the state -fared well when compared to the 99 other largest markets in the nation when it came to overall economic performance. Along with Pittsburgh, this region ranked in the top 20 na-

tionally in the fourth quarter of 2010 using a Brookings formula that combines four economic indicators: Percent job change from the peak quarter to the fourth quarter of 2010; change in the unemployment rate from December 2007 to December 2010; percent change in economic output (gross metropolitan product) from the peak quarter to the fourth quarter of 2010; and percent change in an index of house prices from the

peak quarter to the fourth quarter of 2010. The report noted that only five of the nation’s top 100 most populated metropolitan areas (Bridgeport, Conn.; Cape Coral, Fla.; El Paso, Texas; Harrisburg; and Scranton/WilkesBarre) saw housing price increases. The one area in which the region ranked toward the bottom of the pack was foreclosures.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre was one of just 14 large metropolitan areas that saw an increase from the third to fourth quarters last year. Larry Newman, vice president of planning, policy and development for the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business and Industry, said the report illustrates what area economic development officials have known since the recession began four years ago.

“The Brookings data is the latest sign of some fundamental shifts in our community’s relative economic health. The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (metropolitan statistical area’s) comparatively strong economic performance during the recent recession comes as welcome news, because it represents a marked change from our performance during past national recessions.”

Central bank devalues peso

Cuba’s central bank is devaluing the country’s two types of peso by about 8 percent in relation to the dollar and other foreign currencies. The announcement published in state newspapers on Monday says the hard-currency peso used by tourists will now be worth one dollar, down from $1.08. Each hard-currency peso is still worth 24 of the standard pesos with which most Cubans are paid. The Central Bank says the move should stimulate exports and local production. The move could be a boon for the island’s crucial tourism industry by making trips more affordable, and it will also increase the peso value of remittances sent from abroad, a key lifeline for many cash-strapped Cubans working for salaries of about $20 a month.

The upscale home furnishings retailer has predicted it would have strong fourthquarter sales, including the results from holiday season. Other retailers who cater to higher-end shoppers did well for the quarter, and that bodes well for WilliamsSonoma. Besides its namesake kitchen ware chain, it owns Pottery Barn and West Elm home goods stores.

AUTOS ARE IDLED By GREG GARDNER

Detroit Free Press

D

ETROIT — Japanese automakers idled more plants at least for the next few days as the government rolled out an energy conservation policy and supply chains are disrupted in the wake of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. The depth of the post-tsunami damage was still being assessed.

Over the weekend, Tokyo Electric Power Co. warned of massive rolling blackouts through much of the country, including central Tokyo. Most businesses responded with self-imposed restraint on power use, particularly at night when shortages are expected to be most acute. Since Saturday, cooling systems malfunctioned at three separate reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. The crisis deepened late Monday

when efforts to keep the core of the reactor covered with water failed. That raised the possibility the reactor’s containment vessel could explode and the fuel inside it could melt down. Toyota Motor Corp. is idling all manufacturing plants through Wednesday, which means 40,000 vehicles won’t be assembled. The automakers’ wholly owned factories west of Tokyo sustained little or no damage. But four plants in northern Japan, including the Central Motor plant in Miyagi, where

Toyota makes the Yaris subcompact, and the Kanto Auto Works Iwate plant, where it assembles the Scion xB and xD models, were forced to halt production in the tsunami’s wake. Toyota donated 300 million yen (about $3.7 million) for relief and recovery efforts. Nissan Motor Co. is contributing 30 million yen to those efforts and is studying additional relief efforts, including giving trucks and forklifts, medical supplies, blankets, respiratory masks and other first aid provisions. Production at Nissan’s Tochigi and Iwaki plants is suspended until Friday. Four other plants — Oppama, Kyushu, Nissan Shatai and Yokohama — will be idle until Wednesday. Honda Motor Co. on Friday closed its Tochigi research center north of Tokyo, where one employee was killed when a collapsing cafeteria wall fell on him. On Monday, the company said the Tochigi powertrain plant, as well as the Sayama assembly plant, where it makes the CR-V, Accord, Fit, Acura RL and TSX, and its Ogawa engine plant will close until March 20.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A hacker organization on Monday released e-mails in which a former Bank of America Corp. employee asserts the company is hiding foreclosure information from regulators. The posting by a member of a group known as Anonymous includes e-mails in which a Balboa Insurance employee raises questions about removing from the record documents that were sent out in error. The e-mails don’t indicate the loans have foreclosure issues. A Bank of America spokesman told McClatchy Newspapers that the former Balboa employee stole documents from the company. “We’re confident he will not be able to substantiate his outlandish assertions,” the spokesman said. The Charlotte bank bought Balboa Insurance as part of its 2008 Countrywide Financial Corp. acquisition. Last month, the bank agreed to sell the unit to Australia’s QBE Insurance Group. One of Balboa’s products includes what’s known as lenderplaced insurance used by financial institutions.

Delights, disappointments with first brush with Apple’s iPad2 I GOT MY IPAD 2 this week. I must say that I was impressed ... at least initially. Apple has managed to cram all of the bells and whistles of the previous device -- and a bit more power to boot -- into a smaller, more lithe package that’s lighter than some of the manila folders I’ve been pushing around my desk lately. The new case design, slightly more “pinched,” is the most obvious change, as is the clearly visible speaker grille. The next thing to catch the eye are the

TECH TALK NICK DELORENZO two ports for the front-and-rear-facing cameras that the newest iPad sports. Compared to the old iPad and the Motorola Xoom, from a design standpoint at least, the iPad 2 is superior. But my delighted smile, alas, was short lived. For as soon as I powered on the device, I was confronted with exactly the same screen I saw on the old one. You see, while Apple may have packed more power into the latest iPad, they

forgot to tweak the user interface in any significant way. When I turn on a device, I want to say “Wow.” Instead I said, “Oh.” To be sure, there’s a noticeable difference in the performance of the new iPad. The older model would chug when I managed to overwhelm it. The new one can juggle playing multiple videos, even while changing directions, with-

out missing a beat. But I keep coming back to the fact that it’s just more of the same. With the original iPad, and granted, I’m not the device’s biggest fan, there was something “cool” about just having one. But with the new iPad, alas, the thrill is gone. Perhaps some future release will bring back the “gee whiz” factor, but for now, the accolade goes to the Xoom. Nick DeLorenzo is director of Interactive and New Media for The Times Leader.

Gross sees trouble ahead for Treasurys Interview with Pacfic Investment Management Co. co-founder Bill Gross Bill Gross is so bearish about the U.S. bond market that his fund has sold its Treasury bonds and notes. And his fund is the world’s biggest bond fund, the PIMCO Total Return fund, with $237 billion in assets. He recommends that other investors follow his fund’s example. Treasury prices are likely to take a hard fall when the Federal Reserve’s bond-buying program ends June 30, Gross says. “When the Fed stops buying, who will take their place?” No foreign country, fund manager or other investor has the ability or desire to replace the Fed’s $75 billion in monthly purchases, he says. It will take a large jump in yields to draw buyers back. So Total Return by last week had dumped its bonds and notes. It still has Treasury bills,

mortgages, and foreign bonds among its holdings. The fund can also own stocks. Yet Gross is also wary about stocks. The Fed’s purchases have kept interest rates low. That has helped the S&P 500 rise 22 percent since Chairman Ben Bernanke dropped hints about the program last August. But the Fed’s support for the economy is “artificial,” Gross says. Take that away and bond and stock markets “could have a shock.” His advice: Look overseas. Gross recommends companies like Coca-Cola. It gets about three-quarters of its revenue outside the U.S. If you want bonds, look for countries that don’t have heavy debt loads like the U.S.: Brazil, South Korea and Indonesia.

Bill Gross is one of the founders of Pacific Investment Management Co. and manages its Total Return fund. Gross is the closest thing the bond market has to a celebrity. Morningstar named him bond fund manager of the decade for 2000-09.

HIV can be transmitted by oral sex

Two recent studies found that some interactive digital or video-based games such as Dance Dance Revolution provide a greater calorie burn among children when compared to walking on a treadmill at 3 mph.

Step toward fitness JEANNINE STEIN Los Angeles Times

“Exergames,” interactive digital or video-based games such as Wii Fit and Dance Dance Revolution, are part of today’s fitness landscape for children and young adults. But do they really offer a substantial calorie burn? Two studies find that some of the games do, but whether they’re fun enough for people to stick with them is another thing. The first study, published online last

week in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, set out to quantify how many calories children burned while engaging in a number of exergames, and compared those activities with walking on a treadmill at 3 mph. Researchers analyzed energy expenditure among 39 boys and girls, average age about 11, as they spent time on the games and the treadmill. The participants were also asked to rate how well they enjoyed the games, a mix of commercial

and consumer products: Sportwall, the Jackie Chan Alley Run by Xavix, Lightspace Bug Invasion, Cybex Trazer Goalie Wars, Dance Dance Revolution and Nintendo Wii Boxing. Walking at 3 mph on a treadmill produced a metabolic equivalent, or MET, of 4.9 among the children. MET values approximate how much oxygen the body uses during an activity.

The bottom line on perfect butts WILLIAM HAGEMAN Chicago Tribune

We have a real conflict when it comes to butts. Most people like them. To admire, at least. On the other hand, hardly anybody likes their own. Our butts are either too big, too small, too narrow, too flat, too flabby ... they need work. David Kirsch, a celebrity personal trainer and nutritional consultant, has seen butts from all sides. “You get somebody who’s pear-shaped, and think they have too much junk in their trunk,” he says. “It’s not quite as perky or quite as firm as it should be, it’s not as high as it should be. The opposite end is somebody that is more stick-shaped, like Twiggy, who doesn’t have hips or a butt. Some models I work with have hips but have a flat butt, a pancake butt, so you want to See BUTTS, Page 4C

Q: Many believe that HIV cannot be contracted by oral sex. But aren’t people still at risk from this type of contact? — R.W., Philadelphia A: They are, but the risk of contracting HIV (or some other sexually-transmitted disease like herpes or genital warts) from oral sex is much lower than from vaginal/anal sex. That risk is obviously much greater when one partner is HIV-positive or has a known STD; when the HIV status of either partner is unknown; when one partner injects drugs; or when a partner has multiple sex partners. The risk of oral sex increases if there’s contact with blood (e.g. — mouth sores or menstruation), oral or genital ulcers or when there’s an active STD infection. To reduce the risk of passing on an infection, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggest the use of a physical barrier like a latex or plastic condom to reduce transmission. Natural condoms made from lambskin are not sufficient to prevent the transmission of disease. For the female, a cut-open condom or dental dam can be used as a barrier. Abstinence and mutual monogamy with uninfected (i.e. — confirmed STD-negative) partners are the only ways of being 100 percent safe. Q: When my grandfather was recently hospitalized with severe pneumonia, the respiratory therapist said that the high concentration of oxygen he’s getting may actually be causing him to get worse. How? — B.G., Lima, Ohio A: You may be surprised to learn that the air we breathe is only comprised of only 21 percent oxygen. The major gas we breathe is actually nitrogen (78 percent), with traces of water vapor, carbon dioxide, ammonia, helium, neon, krypton, xenon and argon (plus other rare gases). Your grandfather is caught between a rock and a hard place because while he needs a high concentration of oxygen to survive and overcome his pneumonia, they may cause irreversible lung injury. Doctors, respiratory therapists and nurses do their best to provide adequate oxygen at the lowest concentration levels they can. Too much oxygen generates free radicals, abnormally charged molecules directly toxic to lung tissue. Too much oxygen causes fluid to accumulate in the lung tissue. It attracts platelets and white blood cells which cause even more lung tissue inflammation. Lung water increases, O2/CO2 gas exchange decreases and the result is lung scarring.

These Omega-3 products contain both a high amount of DHA and EPA, which are natural anti-inflammatories that support healthy cellular function. These ingredients work from within the body to reduce systemic inflammation. At PRN, our Omega-3 products are in their natural triglyceride form, the same form that the Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) are in when we absorb them from eating fish. Most other fish oil products are low quality or in a synthetic form, which is more difficult to absorb, leaves a fishy odor or after-taste, and could be potentially harmful in large quantities. It could take up to 40 synthetic capsules to equal the same therapeutic benefits found in just four capsules of PRN’s condition specific products. Our formulas are so effective that our entire business model is based on the therapeutic nature of the product and the physician’s recommendation of it.

BUTTS Continued from Page 1C

give them a little more meat there.” Kirsch knows butts. He wrote the book on them. Really. “David Kirsch’s Butt Book” (David Kirsch Inc.) offers a series of exercises to shrink, narrow and/or tighten your bottom. We asked Kirsch to walk us through three butt exercises to improve our bottom line. On each, start in a standing position. Have your feet shoulder-width distance apart, your core tight, shoulders back. After your workout using all three exercises, take a day off. “If you’re doing it properly, you’ll need a day off,” he says. You should notice improvement in a couple of weeks. Crossover lunge “Take your left leg, step forward and across the right leg and down into a lunge. Instead of the traditional lunge, you’re taking your leg and crossing the other leg and lunging down. It’s more than the quadriceps and the glutes. It’s also working the outer part of the thigh and the outer part of the butt. So for somebody, for example, who has a pearshaped body and thinks there’s too much junk, what they’re doing is firming and lifting what you already have. Do 15 to 20 repetitions for each leg. Do a lunge, come back to the starting position.

“When you do a lunge, one of my catch phrases is, ‘Put your brain in your butt.’ The idea behind that is to really focus on your butt, not your thighs. When you do the lunge, when you’re stepping in with your left leg, really anchor in your leg heel. ‘What you should feel, if you’re anchoring in your heel, you’re going to feel the energy through your calves, your hamstrings, right into your glutes. Your glutes primarily. I write in the book it’s great as the enemy of saddle bags. You’re not only lifting and toning your butt, you’re working the outer parts, shaving off that fat.” Platypus walk “This is going to focus on the inner thighs and lower part of the butt. For anyone who believes their butt is droopy, it’s going to lift it up. It’s like having a butt-lift. You’re going to start in a plie position, wide stance, second position (toes turned out), hands on your hips or behind your head. You start in the second position, but go down into a squat, so your thighs are parallel to the ground. Knees are out, toes are out, knees are in line with your heels, as always with any leg exercise. “You’re going to waddle like a duck, back and forth, so your right leg will come forward, then

A

your left leg, and you maintain the squat the entire time. Take 5 to 10 steps forward, then go in reverse. You don’t turn around; you go in reverse. Forward-reverse, forward-reverse. Three to five times. In the beginning, you will be able to do it a couple of times. You’ll feel it right away. The stronger you get, the more you can increase the number of times you do it.” Sumo lunge “This is something I created for Heidi Klum. I’d been working with her a lot before babies, and I’ve done them with her since. Lift your right leg, right knee up, do a circular roundhouse. Swing your right knee out to the side. Land (out to the side) in a wide stance squat. The position’s going to be squatting like a sumo wrestler. And give the same attitude.” “Come out of the squat, bending at the waist and lifting your right leg, kick out, leading with your heel. “Do 10 to 15 on each side. It’s really cardio intense. Here the idea is you’re not only sculpting the outer thighs and lower part of your butt, but it’s also cardio, and cardio is melting fat. As you tone and sculpt your perfect buttocks, you’re going to shed the excess layers of fat.”

The Wii game came in at 4.2, Dance Dance Revolution was 5.4, the Lightspace game was 6.4, the Xavix game was 7, the Cybex Trazer was 5.9, and the Sportwall was 7.1. All games were played at a moderate to vigorous intensity, and four of the games surpassed treadmill walking in calorie burn. The children liked the Sportwall game the most, and the Xavix game the least. Children who were overweight or at risk for becoming overweight enjoyed the games more than kids with lower body mass indexes. In the study, the authors said that although exergaming may not be the answer to getting sedentary children moving, it does have potential: “It appears to be a potentially innovative strategy that can be used to reduce sedentary time, increase adherence to exercise programs, and promote enjoyment of physical activity,” they wrote. “This may be

especially important for at-risk populations, specifically children who carry excess body weight.” But when it comes to sticking with a fitness program, it’s all about what people like to do. In a study on interactive video games published online recently in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, researchers measured calorie burn and enjoyment among 100 men and women age 18 to 35 that

played four types of games: shooter, band simulation, dance simulation and fitness. All but the shooter games substantially provided greater calorie expenditure over resting. On average, the shooter games created a 23 percent increased energy expenditure over rest, band simulation produced a 73 percent increase, dance simulation came in at 298 percent over rest, and fitness games was highest: 322 percent more burn than rest.

Be careful when giving pets human food

ALL JUNK CARS & TRUCKS WANTED

YOUR PET BY JEFF KAHLER, D.V.M. If you are going to give your dog “people food,” you must, and this is important, be discriminate. There are certain foods that are acceptable and, in fact, can be healthy; however, the converse is also true. There are certain human foods that can be disastrous for our dogs. If you are going to treat your dog to your food, I offer these few guidelines and this mantra: Be strong and know you are doing what is best for your dog. Remember, it is not supposed to be up to them what they eat, it is up to you to make proper nutritional choices. Does it sound like I am trying to convince myself here? Try to look at your dog as a very young child, say about 2 or 3 years old. Would we let that child decide what to eat? Here, sweetie, a bowl of ice cream and a bowl of broccoli, which would you like to eat? Not likely, right? The same needs to hold true for your dog. Stay away from meat and meat scraps. Meat is too high in fat and can cause digestive problems ranging from diarrhea to vomiting and even severe pancreatitis. I know there are some of you who have been feeding meat to your dogs all their lives and have had no problems. I

also know of several cases where dogs that received meat almost daily died from pancreatitis that was uncontrollable. Chicken can be OK if is it skinless and lean, as are the complex carbohydrates such as breads and pastas and potatoes. Remember, dogs are omnivores and get most of their energy from carbohydrates. My dog likes carrots, of all things (and they help keep his teeth clean). I do not want to provide an exhaustive list of acceptable treats. I hope only to help you in making choices that are best for your dog, knowing that we are all somewhat powerless when it comes to them.

HAVE YOU EVER felt manipulated by your dog? Perhaps your dog is so good at it that you do not even realize when you are being manipulated. I must admit, I have fallen under my dog’s spell in the past and I fight it almost daily; I am here to tell you all to be strong. It seems dogs become especially adept at teaching us to feed them things that we may or may not realize are not good for them. You’ve seen the look, right? They cock their heads a bit to the side and look at you with ever-so-longing eyes that unequivocally say, “That piece of roast beef really looks good and I am sure it is harmless.” Don’t do it! Well, at least I talk a good game ... There are few absolutes in this world, and this command never to give human foods as treats to our dogs is not one of them. I am not naive enough to think that just because I tell you it is wrong, you are not going to do it. In fact, it doesn’t even mean I am not going to do it. Yes, I, too, have succumbed to being manipulated by my dog when it comes to giving him my food. That said, I must try to redeem myself as a member of the veterinary profession and spokesman for the proper nutrition of our pets.

We’ll rebalance your account periodically to realign it with the strategy’s allocations, and make adjustments based on our view of the markets. So if you’re considering options to supplement current income, build assets for retirement, or generate income in retirement, talk to an M&T Securities, Inc. registered representative at any M&T Bank branch or at 1-800-724-9949.

Yield and total return information reect the deduction of a management fee of 1.75%, which is the standard annual fee on an individual, non-qualiďŹ ed account of $250,000 or less. Actual account fees will vary. Yield and Total Return information is based on the performance of an Enhanced Income Balanced Strategy account that was credited with an initial investment at the inception of the strategy and reects the cumulative effect of all underlying mutual fund changes, asset class reallocations, quarterly account rebalances, reinvestment of any dividends and capital gains, and the deduction of underlying mutual fund expenses from the inception of the strategy to the date indicated. As of 1/31/11, the Enhanced Income Balanced Strategy accounts assets were allocated as follows: 34% to ďŹ xed income funds, 64% to equity funds, and 2% to cash or money market funds. Asset allocation will vary. Stated performance does not reect the effect of taxes at any level, and does not reect how a customer’s Enhanced Income Balanced Strategy account would have performed in the past or would perform in the future, due in part to the effect of fees and other expenses and to the timing and amount of additions to and withdrawals from the account. Account withdrawals may adversely affect the yield and total return of an Enhanced Income Balanced Strategy account. The performance data quoted represents past performance. The 12-month yield reects the amount of income (including capital gains and any return of capital) received by the Enhanced Income Balanced Strategy account from underlying mutual funds during the twelve months ended 1/31/11, less the standard annual fee described above, divided by the market value of the model account on the last day of the period, which includes reinvested income, distributions, and/or return of capital. Yield will uctuate based on, among other things, the identity of and the amount of income generated by the underlying mutual funds in the Strategy, changing allocations among asset classes within the Strategy, and the market value of the account. Yield information is historic and does not predict the current or future earning power of a customer’s Enhanced Income Balanced Strategy account. The Enhanced Income Balanced Strategy is for long-term investors. Account values will uctuate based on market, economic, political and other inuences, and accounts may lose value over time regardless of the amount of income they may generate. There is no guarantee that an Enhanced Income Balanced Strategy will achieve its investment objectives or attain any particular performance level. An increase in interest rates may cause a decrease in the market values of ďŹ xed income securities. Equity prices are generally more volatile than ďŹ xed income prices. The prices of high yield (non-investment grade), international, and long-term ďŹ xed income securities are generally more volatile than the prices of investment grade, U.S. and short-term ďŹ xed income securities. DiversiďŹ cation and asset allocation do not assure a proďŹ t or protect against loss. Past performance does not guarantee future results. #             ##     #      !

Canine-loving readers offer jealous wife some doggone good advice Dear Abby: You advised “Jealous of the Four-Legged Mistress” (Jan. 31) that her husband, “Monty,” needs to “put her in a higher rank in the pack,” because he pays more attention to “Ginger,” the dog, than he does his wife. My heart ached for Ginger. She’s clinging to the one parent she has left and trying to make sure she doesn’t lose him, too. Ginger and the other dog are suffering from separation anxiety. If dogs don’t have a routine, they have a hard time learning to trust. If “Jealous” wants to make friends with the dogs, she should take them

DEAR ABBY ADVICE for a daily 30-minute walk. She may have to walk them separately at first, but once they get used to it, she can walk them together. In addition, she should start feeding them. After a few weeks of this routine, I guarantee Ginger will start paying attention to her new mistress, and after a while, “Jealous” will find herself a permanent object of Ginger’s affection. If some chew toys and closed doors don’t improve Monty’s attention to his wife’s physical needs, THEN it’s time to see a marriage counselor. — Mama of a Rescued Dog

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

Dear Mama: Like you, many readers were unwilling to let sleeping dogs lie. They made no bones about offering helpful suggestions. Read on: Dear Abby: Many of the behaviors “Jealous” described — following her husband around and being first to greet him at the door — are perfectly normal. People keep pets for their devotion and affection, and Ginger is an example of what dogs do that produce rewards for them. I think the real issue is that the wife is concerned her husband is more affectionate toward Ginger. She shouldn’t blame the dog for doing what comes naturally. — Erica in Sacramento, Calif.

CRYPTOQUOTE

Dear Abby: Losing his first wife was traumatic not only for Monty, but also for the two dogs. Perhaps Ginger is more bereft over the loss if she was close to his deceased wife. Animals experience loss, too. Instead of feeling threatened, “Jealous” should talk to a professional who can help her learn to gain Ginger’s trust, loyalty and affection instead of competing with her. It’s possible “Jealous’” physical needs are being neglected because of her attitude. — Jamie in Reno, Nev. Dear Abby: Because dogs “love the one they’re with,” “Jealous” should spend quality time with Ginger. Take her for walks, give her treats and win

her over with kindness. As a boarding kennel operator, I deal with clingy dogs all the time. It’s my job to make them feel at home and develop a bond with them. Consequently, the pets I take care of love me as much as they do their owners. “Jealous” sounds very insecure. She needs to learn a little about canines to understand that Ginger’s behavior is acceptable. — Dog Lady in Michigan

To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are primal instincts to contend with. Perhaps you’ll even be moved to act like a Neanderthal, as someone close to you has a way of stirring an ancient emotion in you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re always on the lookout for new things that make you happy. Note the sounds of the birds’ calls or the smell of lavender soap balls. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You know what needs to be done around your home, and it’s too much for only one person. Consider posting a “help wanted” sign on a local bulletin board, the Internet or your own refrigerator. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Moving and changing your environment will bring you luck. Furniture, items on shelves and items in closets are all ideal subjects to be rearranged, reorganized or redistributed to charity. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). This is a day to let go. Throw away your bad feelings, and dump your grudges. It won’t be a process. You’ll just do it. You’ll overlook your differences and move to a place of acceptance — it’s easy. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll have new business with old friends and colleagues. When you make an effort to remember only the good things about this person, your business goes smoothly. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In the past, you have given a certain person your undivided attention. Now there are others who need your attention as much or even more.

MINUTE MAZE JUMBLE BY MICHEAL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll find a major source of bonding with a new friend. This is what was needed in order for the relationship to blossom. Tonight features laughter and possibly dancing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When it’s your turn to deliver your work, you won’t have the luxury of blending into the group. You’ll be out in the open, all eyes on you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll walk into a situation that is indifferent and turn it into a friendly environment. Another person will walk into the same place and turn it into a hostile environment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You still think something was your fault, when, in fact, many factors were involved in the situation. So release the guilt and move on. You’ll feel free just as soon as you do this. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have a sharp sense for finding what’s hidden, uncovering the mystery and solving riddles. Additionally, you might locate something that you thought was lost forever. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 15). This year brings intellectual and aesthetic growth. You are alert to opportunity, and over the next five weeks you will seize the chance to serve and earn a profit. April brings a run of good luck in your personal life, and your popularity will be on the rise. There’s a special connection with Virgo and Libra people. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 3, 18, 21 and 46.
