TRIPOLI, Libya — Trying to outmaneuver Western military intervention, Moammar Gadhafi’s government declared a cease-fire on Friday against the rebel uprising faltering against his artillery, tanks and warplanes. The opposition said shells rained down well after the announcement and accused the Libyan leader of lying. Wary of the cease-fire, Britain and France took the lead in plans to enforce a no-fly zone, sending British warplanes to the Mediterranean and announcing a crisis summit in Paris with the U.N. and Arab allies.

John Hasay March 17, 2011

John A. Hasay, 95, farmer, businessman, and veteran, passed away on Thursday, March 17, 2011. Born in 1915, in Fairmount Springs, Pa., he was the second son of the late George and Mary Paciga Hasay. He worked the family farm and walked to one-room schoolhouses on Red Hill and later in Pleasant Valley. With his father he sold eggs, potatoes, and jugs of apple cider in the North End of Wilkes-Barre, and from these early experiences he developed the skills to later sell cars. During the Great Depression, he found work in the mines with the Nottingham Coal Co. in Plymouth. When the WPA was formed, with his older brother, Andrew, he drove a dump truck at the Bernice Mines near Lopez, Pa. When World War II started, being in the service, he and his wife, the former Anna Orzechowski Hasay, who passed away in 2003, were married in October 1944, but the Army then shipped him overseas to the ChinaBurma-India Asiatic Pacific Theater, where he was stationed with the 859th Ordnance Heavy Equipment Co. as an engineer. He played a part in the construction of the Ledo Road from India to China, described as one of the greatest engineering feats of the entire war. After the war, he became a road foreman for the Pennsylvania Department of Highways and began selling cars for Bill Johnson Chevrolet and R.G. Smith in Berwick. Then Dodge went on strike in 1950, which caused him to work for Doyle Sutliff Chevrolet, where he and his younger brother, Joseph, later bought the Shickshinny business, forming Hasay Chevrolet in 1956. When Joseph suddenly passed away in 1958, John ran the business alone every day while supporting his wife and three young sons. During this time, not only did he achieve outstanding success – single-handedly selling more than 1,000 new Chevrolets in the 1973 model year – but also while being a Democratic Committeeman for over 50 years, he raised three sons, one becoming a State Representative, another, a Magisterial District Judge, while his third son worked with him at the business. His small town Chevrolet dealership was one of the nation’s longest running single Motor Division franchises in Chevrolet history, selling Chevys for over 54 years. He held life membership at the American Legion Post 495, the Mocanaqua V.F.W. Post 6434, and the United Sportsmen Camp 271. He was on the Board of Directors for the former Wyoming National Bank in Shickshinny, a member of the former Ascension Parish in Mocanaqua, and held memberships with the Catholic War Veterans, the Am-Vets, the Elks, the Moose and many other organizations. Besides his wife; brothers, Andrew and Joseph; and parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Mary. He is survived by his son George and his wife, Nancy, and granddaughter, Rachel; son John and his wife, Ember, and grandson, John Jacob, and granddaughter, Molly; son Andrew; sisters, Anna Crepack and Sophie Gabana, all of Shickshinny; sisters, Helen Heller and Irene Kropiewnicki of Bloomsburg; as well as several nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be held at 9 a.m. Monday from the Mayo Funeral Home, 77 N. Main St., Shickshinny, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. in St. Martha’s Church, Holy Spirit Parish, Fairmount Springs, Pa., with his pastor, the Rev. Anthony Generose, as celebrant. Entombment will be in the family’s mausoleum at Mossville Cemetery, near his Red Hill farm in Fairmount Township. Military services will be conducted by American Legion Post 495 of Shickshinny. Visitation will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home. Condolences may be sent by visiting www.mayofh.com. More Obituaries, Page 8A

Cherry will be retried on homicide charge

W-B man’s first trial resulted in acquittal of charge and mistrial. By SHEENA DELAZIO sdelazio@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – A city man will again stand trial on homicide charges in the death of a 1-year-old after his first trial resulted in an acquittal of first-degree murder and a mistrial. Luzerne County Judge Tina Polachek Gartley scheduled a June 27 trial date for 37-year-old Lamont Cherry, charged with homicide in the May 2009 death of his girlfriend’s 1-year-old daughter, Zalayia McCloe. Cherry first stood trial in McCloe’s

death in January, and after a two-week trial, including jury selection, a mistrial was declared due to a juror’s misconduct after the jury had decided Cherry was not guilty of first-degree murder. Juror Gretchen Black, a seventhgrade teacher at Northwest Area School District and mother of four, had conducted research after the jury had gone home for the day about retinal detachment – a complication of shaken baby syndrome McCloe allegedly suffered before her death. An investigation was conducted and Black was not charged with any wrongdoing. Cherry will now face charges of thirddegree murder and involuntary man-

slaughter. Had Cherry been convicted of first-degree murder, he would have faced the death penalty or life in prison. William Ruzzo, Cherry’s attorney, said he does not expect the new trial to last more than four days. Polachek Gartley said there will be a pre-trial hearing on June 20 where she and attorneys will discuss questions asked to potential jurors as well as instructions to be given to jurors who are selected. The judge said she will concentrate specifically on if any juror has heard about the case and what they know about it. See CHERRY, Page 4A

PLAINS TWP. – Township police are trying to sort different stories about what happened in the Woodlands Inn & Resort parking lot, where two women were struck by a vehicle early Friday morning. It may come down to surveillance video of the incident that was reported just after 2 a.m., police Lt. Richard Lussi said. Police said two women, Maria Phillips, 18, of Wilkes-Barre, and Taysha Toro, 18, of Brooklyn, N.Y., were struck by a vehicle driven by Jose M. Oquendo Jr., 29, of Wilkes-Barre. Phillips suffered a head injury and Toro suffered injuries to her wrist and ankle.

After the second crash, witnesses chased Oquendo through the parking lot. “It is an ongoing investigation,” Lussi said. “We’ve received conflicting stories about what happened.” Lussi said there were statements by witnesses that Oquendo was assaulted before he struck the two women with his vehicle. Oquendo suffered minor injuries and was transported to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center. Lussi said Oquendo refused to submit to a blood-alcohol test. Under state law, drivers suspected of being intoxicated who refuse to submit to a blood test automatically lose their driver’s license for one year. “We didn’t charge him yet because we’re still investigating to determine what happened,” Lussi said. Police may still be able to determine Oquendo’s blood-alcohol level by executing a search warrant and subpoena for his medical records, which is commonly performed by law enforcement agencies. “We’ll know more when we review the surveillance tapes,” Lussi said.

ASHLEY – The U.S. Postal Service abandoned its Ashley Post Friday. After more than 150 years of operation, the U.S. Post Office at 31 N.

It’s easy to access (and) a lot of people use it.” She said customers from Warrior Run, Sugar Notch and even parts of Nanticoke now have to travel farther and wait longer for postal services. The Ashley branch is about two miles from the Wilkes-Barre Post Office. Customers of the Ashley office said the office is also out of the flood plain, on a public bus route and offers speedier, more personal service. “This week I bought three books of stamps, just so I don’t have to go to Wilkes-Barre,” Thomas said.

in Plains Township. Many stopping by for one last visit to the Ashley office Friday said those offices can’t replace what the Ashley office offered. Gary Kratz, of Forty Fort, said he uses the Ashley Post Office when he is in the area because the smaller branch office is typically less-crowded than the main Wilkes-Barre branch. Kratz said he thinks the U.S. Post Service should keep the Ashley office. See STAMP, Page 4A

Ashley’s old post office could live on in history By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

ASHLEY – One man is working to preserve the Ashley Post Office’s interior for public display. Michael Chmiola, 28, wants to preserve the interior façade of the post office – a wood structure that will be dismantled and placed in storage unless Chmiola can convince the U.S. Postal Service to donate it so it can be placed on display. The Plymouth Historical Society has already told Chmiola that it has space to display the structure. “It’s lasted so long – maybe 158 years – and it will be gone soon,” Chmiola said. “This is an important part of our history and it should be put on display and not placed in storage or destroyed.” Ray Daiutolo, regional spokesperson for the U.S. Postal Service, said a main-

Luzerne County Senior Judge Richard Saxton has denied county Prothonotary Carolee Medico Olenginski’s legal action attempting to force the county to keep the prothonotary as an elected post when home rule is implemented in January. Medico Olenginski’s suit argued that the keeping of civil records falls under the judicial system, and putting those duties under an appointed county manager and elected council through home rule would violate the state constitution. The county had argued that there’s no case law or evidence that the prothonotary is part of the court branch and that the law allows home “The marule charters to resjority of tructure the office.

Prothonotary Solicitor Sam Stretton said he will appeal to Commonwealth Court because he does not believe the law intended the county’s executive branch to oversee the keeping of civil court records. “I disagree with the court’s rationale, and I think it creates a very dangerous precedent,” Stretton said. “I respect Judge Saxton, but this time I think he’s wrong, with all due respect.” The suit is filed against the three county commissioners as well as the 11-member Government Study Commission that drafted the charter, though the study commission has disbanded.

DALLAS TWP. – It affects twice as many people as breast cancer, but it doesn’t have a ribbon like the pink ones associated with breast cancer. If it did, the ribbon might be colored black and blue, the color of the bruises suffered by many of its victims. On Friday, nearly 300 people gathered in the Lemmond Theater at Misericordia University to learn more about it. “Understanding Relationship Violence: Perpetrators and Victims,” was the title of the lecture hosted by the Department of Psychology and Honors Program at the university. Wind Goodfriend, Ph.D., principal investigator for the Institute for the Prevention of Relationship Violence and an associate professor of psychology at Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, Iowa, presented the latest research on the psychology of per-

petrators and victims of relationship violence, the risk factors that play into abusive relationships and provided some insight into why some victims choose not to leave a violent situation. Goodfriend said she became interested in relationship violence when she followed the

lead of an instructor and started researching romantic relationships. Studying how people in romantic relationships begin to lose objectivity and overlook the bad traits of their partner prompted her to start investigating relationships gone bad, she said.

Concert benefits Haiti quake victims By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent

DALLAS TWP. – When a powerful 7.0 earthquake struck the impoverished island nation of Haiti in January 2010, it started a series of humanitarian aftershocks that rattled hearts and minds around the world. The reverberations were felt by two area students who decided to make a difference. Misericordia University seniors Sarah Terry and Devin Koslap heeded an inner call to service and boarded a plane for Haiti to join an international medical team

tasked with providing emergency services at a makeshift clinic. “No matter what I’d seen on TV, nothing could prepare me for the devastation I witnessed when I was in Haiti,” Koslap said. The two, who both major in occupational therapy, organized a benefit concert for Haitian earthquake relief at the Lemmond Theater in Misericordia’s Walsh Hall on Friday night, featuring music by local bands and entertainers. “With the recent earthquakes in Japan and New Zealand, it’s important that people don’t forget the Haitian victims,” Terry stated.

until we get in there and start talking the stuff out.” The wooden structure is old, but neither Chmiola nor the Postal Service can say when it was installed in the post office that opened in 1853 – 17 years before Ashley was incorporated as a borough. Georgetta Potoski, director of the Plymouth Historical Society, said her building has space to accommodate the structure. “We would have no problem with that,” she said. Chmiola is a member of the Plymouth and Luzerne County historical societies.

erated the Ashley Planes as a way of getting freight and passengers into and out of the Wyoming Valley dating back to 1840. In 1903 the postmaster at Ashley was paid a salary $1,100 while the postmaster at Wilkes-Barre was paid a salary of $3,200. At that time his salary was determined by the volume of mail and the cancellation of stamps at the particular post office, Chmiola said. According to Chmiola’s research, in the 1890s the postal service began the Rural Free Delivery (RFD) program, where mail was brought directly to people’s houses at no charge. Before this time people would have had to go to their local post office or general store to claim their mail. In 1904 Ashley along with Kingston and Dorranceton were granted free home delivery by the Postal Service, while the residents of Edwardsville, Luzerne, and Forty Fort were denied home delivery because the postal inspectors deemed the towns to have insufficient sidewalks, paved streets, street lights, along

with the lack of house numbering, Chmiola found.

“I just came in for old time’s sake,” she said. “Sixty-some years I used to come here.” Continued from Page 3A The woman, who declined to At least one woman came to give her name, said she used to came by the post office just to deliver the mail to St. Leo’s Church and school in Ashley on reminisce one final time.

the way to school as a child. “When we were kids we walked to school in the winter,” she said. “By the time we’d get down here, we would be freezing. It was pretty nice to come in the post office and warm up.”

Early beginnings Chmiola did some historical research and found that the post office was originally known as the Hendricksburg Post Office, established in 1853. One of the first postmasters was William Barkman. Chmiola said in 1870, the borough of Ashley was incorporated and in that year the post office’s name was changed to Ashley. The borough got its name from Herbert H. Ashley, who was one of the largest stock holders in the Central Railroad of New Jersey. The CNJ had a large railroad yard and shop complex in town. The railroad company also op-

Home delivery Chmiola said home delivery began in Ashley borough on Sept. 1, 1904. He said Ashley was served by a full post office with its own postmaster up until Sept. 21, 1904, when it was made a full sub-station of the Wilkes-Barre main post office. On Oct. 1, 1904, the new furnishings began to be delivered for the new Ashley Branch post office. Chmiola said in 2009 the Postal Service began reviewing branches and small post offices across the country and began to make decisions on which should be closed for cost-cutting efforts. Five weeks ago the Postal Service announced that the Ashley Branch would close. The last day of operation of the Ashley Post Office was Friday. “It will be the end of 158 years of service to the community when the doors are locked for the last time at 5 p.m.,” Chmiola said.

CHERRY Continued from Page 3A

Jury instructions are also important, Polachek Gartley said. Those instructions include what Polachek Gartley told the first Cherry trial jury numerous times a day – to stay away from media reports and the Internet and refrain from conducting their own research. Judges presiding over criminal jury trials routinely instruct jurors not to discuss the case outside the jury room or view media reports. Cherry testified at the January trial that he said he cared for McCloe for a number of months while living with her mother, Christa Smith, loving her, playing with her, changing her diaper and feeding her.

Twin astronauts reunited

stronaut Scott Kelly is back home reunited with his twin astronaut A brother, after a five-month space sta-

tion mission that was marred by the shooting of his congresswoman sisterin-law. Kelly hurried back to Houston on Thursday, just a day after landing in Kazakhstan aboard a Russian capsule. He was immediately reunited with identical twin Mark, who’s married to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Giffords is recuperating in Houston from a gunshot wound to the head. She was shot Jan. 8 while meeting with constituents in Tucson, Ariz. The tragedy occurred three months into Scott Kelly’s stay at the International Space Station. Scott Kelly, who served as station commander, said he called his brother as much as he could from orbit, but satellite coverage for phone calls was sporadic. That’s why he couldn’t wait to be reunited. “Just seeing him and talking to him and seeing how he’s doing,” he said in a NASA interview conducted within hours of his touchdown with two Russian crewmates.

MINNEAPOLIS — Most of the people who fell ill in a mass drug overdose that left one person dead have been released from hospitals, authorities said Friday.

A 19-yearold man from Coon Rapids died.

Police did not release names. The boy who hosted the party was apparently among those who fell ill. The drug, also known as "Europa," is a hallucinogen with no medical use. Authorities in Minnesota initially said the drug had been purchased legally. But on Friday, a spokesman for the Drug Enforcement Administration said the substance counts as illegal because it’s so chemically similar to other drugs that are banned. The house where the party was held is a beige, two-story home north of Minneapolis. A pair of trucks stood in the driveway late Thursday, but a tall fence with a “Beware of Wife” sign made it difficult to see much else. Although rare, there have been several

U.S. deaths from drugs similar to 2C-E since 2000. Carol Falkowski, a drug abuse strategy officer with the Minnesota Department of Human Services, said the drugs were more common about 10 years ago, when raves parties were popular. Falkowski said 2C-E is chemically similar to 2C-B, which is regulated as a controlled substance and therefore would not be legal to buy online. A federal law says “cousin drugs” similar to 2C-B can be considered illegal if they’re intended for consumption, but the law does not specifically regulate all similar versions. “It’s really a sad situation where so many people are involved in using a drug that can have such harmful effects,” Falkowski said.

MANAMA, BAHRAIN

Monument is demolished

Bahrain’s army on Friday demolished the 300-foot monument that had become a symbol of a monthlong Shiite uprising against the Sunni monarchy in the Gulf nation. The destruction of the six white curved beams topped with a huge cement pearl underlined the resolve of the Sunni regime to root out any dissent in the kingdom, now under emergency rule. The structure was built in Pearl Square as a monument to Bahrain’s history as a pearl-diving center but became associated with the protests that have roiled the majority Shiite nation. Security forces overran a protest camp at the square on Wednesday, setting off clashes that killed at least five people, including two policemen. At least 12 people have been killed in the month-long revolt. CAIRO, EGYPT

Referendum will test vote

Forty million Egyptians get their first taste of a free vote in decades when a package of constitutional amendments sponsored by Egypt’s ruling military goes to a nationwide vote today. The referendum is the first major test of the country’s transition to democracy after a popular uprising overthrew President Hosni Mubarak’s authoritarian rule. They would open the elections to independent and opposition candidates and restore full judicial supervision of votes, a measure seen as key to preventing fraud.

N.H., R.I. and N.J. buck national trend by proposing cigarette tax cut. The Associated Press

CONCORD, N.H. — Bucking a national trend of raising cigarette taxes, New Hampshire, New Jersey and Rhode Island have considered reducing theirs, hoping to draw smokers from other states and increase revenue. Supporters argue reducing the tax by a dime would make New Hampshire more competitive with Maine, Vermont and Massachusetts, while opponents say that even if the state experienced higher sales as a result it still would lose millions of dollars in revenue. It’s very unusual for states to lower the tax, University of Illinois at Chicago economics professor Frank Chaloupka says. The increase in sales isn’t enough to offset the drop in state tax revenue, he says. Instead of lowering the tax, states have enacted 100 increases over the past decade, he says. "New Hampshire has been going in the same direction as the rest of the country, basically forever," Chaloupka said. New Hampshire raised its tax repeatedly since Democratic Gov. John Lynch took office in 2006, increasing it from 52 cents per pack in 2005 to $1.78 currently. That changed Thursday, when the state House passed a bill that would cut the rate 10 cents to $1.68 per pack in hopes of attracting smokers from surrounding states with higher taxes. Rhode Island’s bill would cut its tax by $1, to $2.46 per pack.

Judge stops Wis. union bargaining

BRADENTON, FLA.

An American missionary who was abruptly jailed without charges for five months in Haiti has returned to the United States. Danny Pye, a 29-year-old pastor who ran an orphanage in southern Haiti, arrived Thursday evening in central Florida, where his wife is about to give birth to their second child. Pye was released Tuesday. He was initially jailed in October over claims he took property from other missionaries, former associates with whom he split following a dispute last year. He was briefly released on Christmas Eve, then re-arrested and jailed on suspicion of having an invalid residency card.

Snipers kill 46 protesters in Yemen in mass demonstration The latest attack saw a new level of brutality in President Salah’s crackdown on dissent. By AHMED AL-HAJ and ZEINA KARAM Associated Press

SANAA, Yemen — A massive demonstration against Yemen’s government turned into a killing field Friday as snipers methodically fired down on protesters from rooftops and police made a wall of fire with tires and gasoline, blocking a key escape route. At least 46 people died, including some children, in an attack that marked a new level of brutality in President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s crackdown on dissent. Medical officials and witnesses said hundreds were wounded. The dramatic escalation in violence suggested Saleh was growing more fearful that the unprecedented street protests over the past month, set off by unrest across the Arab world, could unravel his 32-year grip on power in this volatile, impoverished and gun-saturated nation. The United States, which has long relied on Saleh for help

fighting terrorism, condemned the violence. The bloodshed, however, failed to dislodge protesters from a large traffic circle they have dubbed “Taghyir Square” — Arabic for “Change.” Hours after the shooting, thousands demanding Saleh’s ouster stood their ground, many of them hurling stones at security troops and braving live fire and tear gas. They stormed several buildings where the snipers had taken position, dragging out 10 people — including some the protesters claimed were paid thugs. They said the men would be handed over to judicial authorities. The protest in the capital, Sanaa, drew tens of thousands, the largest crowd yet in Yemen’s uprising. It began peacefully. A military helicopter flew low over the square just as protesters were arriving after the main Muslim prayer services of the week. A short while later, gunfire rang out from rooftops and houses, sending the crowd into a panic. Dozens were hit and crumpled to the ground. One man ran for help cradling a young boy shot in the head.

MADISON, Wis. — A Wisconsin judge issued a temporary restraining order Friday blocking the state’s new and contentious collective bargaining law from taking effect, raising the possibility that the Legislature may have to vote again to pass the bill. Lawmakers had passed Gov. Scott Walker’s measure last week, breaking a three-week stalemate Sumi caused by 14 Senate Democrats fleeing to Illinois. Demonstrations against the measure grew as large as 85,000 people. Dane County District Judge Maryann Sumi granted the order in response to a lawsuit filed by the district attorney alleging that Republican lawmakers violated the state’s open meetings law by hastily convening a special committee before the Senate passed the bill. Sumi said her ruling would not prevent the Legislature from reconvening the committee with proper notice and passing the bill again. Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie would not comment on whether the governor would push to call the Legislature back to pass the bill again, either in its current form or with any changes.

Obama to visit Latin America President will visit Brazil, Chile and El Salvador as a mission to create jobs. The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — A nuclear crisis in Japan, fighting in Libya, turmoil in the Mideast and the threat of a government shutdown at home. It’s a tough time for President Barack Obama to leave on a trip to Latin America. Over the next five days, Obama is to visit Brazil, Chile and El Salvador in what the White House casts as a mission to build job-creating opportunities for the United States and to address regional security concerns. The trip, considered by many

in the hemisphere as long overdue, is also an effort to solidify relationships that have slipped two years after ObaObama ma declared "a new chapter of engagement" with the region. In that time, China has expanded its economic footprint in the region and has surpassed the United States as Brazil’s top trade partner. Despite the competing, pressing demands on the president, the White House has been determined to proceed with the trip, emphasizing the potential of the burgeoning region for U.S. eco-

nomic growth. "In this increasingly interconnected and fiercely competitive world, our top priority has to be creating and sustaining new jobs and new opportunities for our people," Obama wrote in an opinion piece in USA Today. "We’ve got to keep competing for every new job, every new industry and every new market in the 21st century." Obama’s planned departure Friday was coming a day after the U.N. Security Council approved a no-fly zone over Libya and authorized "all necessary measures" to protect civilians from attacks by Moammar Gadhafi’s forces. In Latin America, Obama will meet with recently elected Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff.

Crashes of discount buses stir concern Recent years have seen a boom in buses whose main selling point is cost. The Associated Press

NEW YORK — The past year has been one of exhilarating expansion, and deadly setbacks, for the fleets of inexpensive buses plying the highways of the Northeast. Lured by cheap fares, convenient routes and in some cases free wireless Internet, customers queue up daily from curbside pickups in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington. The industry is in the fifth year of a solid boom, thanks to a new breed of bus service that eschews terminals and thrives on low pric-

es Amtrak couldn’t hope to match. But a string of fatal crashes over six months also has prompted calls for tougher regulation. In September, four people died after a Megabus driver missed his exit for a depot in Syracuse, N.Y., and smashed into a low bridge on an unfamiliar parkway. Last Saturday, a bus swerved off Interstate 95 in New York City and was sliced in two by a pole, killing 15. On Monday, a bus drove off the New Jersey Turnpike and struck a bridge support, killing the driver and a passenger. The buses were all operated under different circumstances. One was owned by a big corporation with deep pockets. Another was a casino shuttle. The third was a tiny company serving mostly Chinese immigrants.

Still, all three crashes happened in the dark, and on any bus route drivers are susceptible to fatigue. Only a few years ago, the main competition to Greyhound, Trailways and Peter Pan for bus routes between big Northeastern cities was a handful of small, fiercely competitive companies that catered almost exclusively to recent Chinese immigrants, with an occasional backpacker or college student. The new services take everything people liked about the Chinatown buses — the cheap fares and express routes — and add corporate gloss. The buses are new, spacious and have Internet access usually not seen on Amtrak. By avoiding terminals, they save on user fees and space rental charges.

Marked-off area stirs Dallas Twp. concerns

The community recently saw a controversy over a gas compressor near the schools.

This area, marked off by stakes, is stirring talk in Dallas Township. Previously there was a controversy over a plan to build a gas compressor station near the Dallas School District campus. A pipeline easement was filed Thursday, and an engineering company is expected to present the township with a land development application on Monday, the zoning officer said. Some neighbors have expressed concern and discussed taking action.

DALLAS TWP. – A marked-off area along Sedlar Road in Dallas Township has spurred talk among concerned residents and parents in the Dallas School District, where the relocation of a proposed compressor station is still uncertain. A pipeline easement along Sedlar Road between property owned by John Metz and that of Williams Field Services Co., LLC, a subsidiary of Williams Gas Co., was agreed upon in August but was filed in Luzerne County Court Thursday. The area, which begins near the intersection of Hildebrandt and Sedlar roads, has been staked off and work should begin in July, according to court documents. Dallas Township Zoning Officer Leonard Kozick said Milnes engineering company has plans to

present a land development application Monday on behalf of Williams Gas Co. No applications have been received from Williams or Chief Gathering LLC as of Friday afternoon. A spokesperson from Milnes Companies, an engineering, general contracting, surveying and management firm in Tunkhannock, confirmed Williams Gas Co. is a client. Residents in the area have been questioning whether the reloca-

low the pipeline with the stakes it leads to fields right there across the street. I have thought this for some time.” Jacobs said she and some neighbors have been curious as to what is happening just a mile down the road from their properties. “I have noticed some activity in that area,” said resident Jeff Zaykowski. “It’s still uncertain what’s going to happen.” Jim Sprypek, of Sedlar Road, said he was aware of the pipeline placement near his home but just

tion of the proposed Chief compressor station will be built somewhere along Sedlar Road. Officials from Chief Gathering could not be reached via telephone or e-mail Friday. “I pass through there three, four, five times a day,” said resident Kim Jacobs. “When I do, I cringe because I see the stakes and the trees – orange ribbons on stakes, blue and pink ribbons and blue and white ribbons on trees. It just looks like it is very heavily marked off, and if you actually fol-

heard Thursday about the potential for a compressor station in the area. “None of us are really sure,” he said. “I’ve heard from some that there is a very good possibility. The markings are more extensive than necessary for a pipeline.” He said he plans to gather with neighbors and rally for support against the possibility of a compressor station in the area. “We’re prepared to take some sort of action against it,” he said. “We’re astonished that they would even consider moving a facility like this to a residential area.” Chief announced last month plans to relocate a proposed compressor station from 1,300 feet away from the Dallas schools to a “more rural” area of the township. The company is pursuing plans to build a natural gas metering facility off of Hildebrandt Road, just over 1,000 feet from the Dallas School District campus.

Kingston Twp. spells out rules for gas, oil drillers in proposed law By SARAH HITE shite@timesleader.com

A draft gas and oil ordinance recently proposed in Kingston Township that makes natural gas companies liable for township road damage may be “a standard” for future municipal ordinances in the state, said Chairman James Reino Jr. The ordinance proposed at the supervisors’ March 9 meeting, limits natural gas and oil activities, including the construction of well pads, compressor stations and processing plants, to agricultural and mining zoning districts and must have a minimum site of 10

acres. The industry will be prohibited from building in residential, industrial and conservation districts. Reino said the supervisors, zoning board and planning commission all had a hand in the yearlong creation of the ordinance. He believes the drafted document does not tell companies how to conduct business, but it does ensure companies follow township regulations to minimize the effect on the community. “When we did our research, the

engineer. Companies would need to draft an excess maintenance agreement with the township to bond the roads. The draft ordinance also addresses the new storm water management requirements that must be adopted by municipalities. Reino said natural gas companies will need to follow those rules prior to subdivision and land development approvals. He said in compiling information for the ordinance, the creators were careful to abide by state and federal laws in order to avoid potential lawsuits from natural gas companies. “Most of the ordinances we’ve

biggest complaint seeing from towns was that most of the roads in the small municipalities aren’t capable of handling heavy equipment,” said Reino. The ordinance would require companies to provide plans for truck routes and to work with the township engineer to create a comprehensive report on the existing condition of the municipal roads. An engineer will create a written report supplemented with photographs and videotape to ensure the natural gas and oil companies are held liable for damages. Reino said a $3,000 application fee will cover the costs accrued by work completed by the township

seen have been challenged in court because they were trying to regulate outside of the state gas act,” said Reino. “We’ve been very careful to design this against those that have been challenged.” While Reino said he has only heard rumors of natural gas leases in the township, he said the point of this ordinance is to protect the infrastructure of the community while allowing the industry to safely conduct business in the township. The draft ordinance is currently available for public viewing at the municipal building on East Center Street in Shavertown.

WILKES-BARRE – Dave Palermo, a former member of the staff of defeated state Rep. Todd Eachus, is now working for state Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski. Palermo, of Butler Township and a member of the board of the Luzerne County Convention Center Authority, is working as a legislative assistant assigned to Pashinski by the House Democratic Caucus. Pashinski, D-Wilkes-Barre, said Palermo’s salary is $66,000 and he will report to Jack McNulty, Pashinski’s chief of staff. “This isn’t a new position,” Pashinski said. “It won’t cost taxpayers any more money.” Palermo said he has worked for the Democratic Caucus for 15 years, assigned to Eachus’ office. “Dave was transferred from Todd’s office to my local office to expand our services,” Pashinski said. “Dave has a wealth of knowledge and contacts that will benefit the constituents of the 121st District and I am fortunate to have access to his ability.” Pashinski said he intends to expand his office hours in Wilkes-Barre and expand the services provided. He said Palermo will handle a lot of grant writing to try to secure funding for the district. “We’ve talked about how he will coordinate larger efforts and events,” Pashinski said. “His full potential is extensive and we intend to use his talents in a variety of ways to benefit constituents.” Pashinski’s district office is located at 152 S. Pennsylvania Ave. in the city. Eachus, a Democrat, was the House Majority Leader before he lost his bid for re-election in November to state Rep. Tarah Toohil, R-Butler Township.

Scent may be of missing woman By JERRY LYNOTT jlynott@timesleader.com

PITTSTON – The search for a missing woman moved downstream Friday. Investigators said a dog trained to detect corpses hit upon a scent about a half mile from the bloody crime scene in a park along the Susquehanna River, where the woman’s purse, an eyeglass lens and dentures were found a week ago. Those items belonged to Lillian Calabro, 48, who did not return to her apartment in Gabriel House on March 11, investigators said. Gabriel House is a transitional housing residence for women that is located a few blocks from the crime scene in Riverfront Park below the Water Street Bridge.

The dog named Ebby, a border collie Sheltie mix, part of the volunteer Northeast Search and Rescue, found a scent in an area near the east bank of the river, said her handler Bruce Barton. “There’s something there that’s getting the dog’s interest,” he said. However the scent was not strong, possibly because of discharges of sewage and mine drainage into the river, he added. The high water and the fast current also affected the detection. A section of yellow police tape was wrapped around a tree trunk atop the bank to mark the location for searchers on land. On the river, a three-member team of the Germania Hose Co. and a single count of criminal mischief to Luzerne County Court. Exeter police withdrew two other arson counts against Bednarek.

have already heard positive feedback on the program from businesses and job seekers. In fact, several employers want to interview those who have completed the course, recognizing the value of the ESL Warehouse program and the topics covered during the program.” Several of those employers were represented at Friday’s ceremony: Mission Foods, Mountain Top; AEP, Mountain Top; Romark, Hazle Township; TJ Maxx, Pittston Township; and Assante Staffing, Hazleton. “We are definitely interested in talking to these people,” said Holly Miller of Romark Logistics. “We have openings in our warehouse associates and copacking departments.” Lauren Miles of Assante Staffing echoed Miller’s remarks, adding that her company will be interviewing for temporary positions. Amarilis Baez, one of the graduates, said she can’t wait to start

He said being able to speak English better will open more doors for him. “I guess everybody always wants to get a better job,” he said. The program was funded through a grant procured by the Luzerne/Schuylkill Workforce Investment Board, which is responsible for overseeing the programs administered through the PA CareerLink centers in Hazleton, Wilkes-Barre and Pottsville. Training for the ESL Warehouse program was provided by Luzerne County Community College and the Northeast PA Manufacturers and Employers Association. The ESL Warehouse course will be offered again starting next week and will run through the end of June. In the future, ESL courses geared toward other industries may be offered.

No data were available for the first two days of this year’s action. “We strive to be proactive as we offer services that benefit job seekers and employers alike,” said Lucyann Vierling, executive director of the Luzerne/Schuylkill Workforce Investment Board. “In our discussions with business and industry leaders, this was deemed to be a necessary program in the Hazleton area. We then identified occupation-specific knowledge and skills for warehouse associates, in addition to English-language skills, and incorporated those items into the course. A certain percentage of unemployed local residents are Hispanic and we want to be able to meet their employment needs through programs such as this.” Topics covered in the ESL Warehouse course included: principles and methods for moving, receiving, storing, labeling, handling and shipping goods; best practices for facility and personal safety; processes and procedures for taking physical and computerized stock counts and recording shortages, damage or defective product; data recording, communication, active listening and time management.

Munchak, Cordaro motions denied

By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – A federal judge on Friday denied motions filed by Lackawanna County Commissioner A.J. Munchak and former Commissioner Robert Cordaro that sought the dismissal of an indictment filed against them. U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo also denied Munchak’s motion that sought a separate trial and a joint motion that sought to have the case transferred to another venue due to pre-trial publicity. Caputo did grant several motions that sought the release of information from prosecutors. Munchak and Cordaro were initially indicted in March on numerous counts, including racketeering, honest services fraud, extortion and bribery. A revised indictment alleging the same conduct was filed in October. Prosecutors allege the men utilized their positions as county commissioners to extort money from numerous companies that did business with the county. Cordaro’s attorney, William Costopoulos, had sought to dismiss the indictment, arguing the defense had been significantly harmed by leaks of grand jury information to the media. He cited 12 articles that had appeared for less than one-tenth of 1 percent of the total hours American workers will put in over the three weeks of the tournament,” he added. The viewership does not even take into account the other ways employees watch the games: Calling off sick and staying home on the La-Z-Boy or heading out to a bar or tavern to watch the game with some cold brews and fries. Lucky’s Sporthouse in WilkesBarre Township has so many people stop by who chose that second route that the establishment even provided paper bags to customers to put over their head to alleviate any fear of being spotted by a co-worker or boss. General Manager Kathi Bankes relayed tale after tale about people coming in Friday morning and afternoon who obviously were supposed to be somewhere else.

One group of 20 came in and asked to be seated in the “back room,” which is usually only opened for overflow at busy times, hardly ever on a Friday afternoon. Another group of six came in and before they were seated made sure they had the paper bags in hand or on head. One man came in and proudly told those who would listen that he told his boss he was home sick and his wife he had jury duty. He even personalized his paper bag mask, writing: “I’m at jury duty baby!” on it. Not every place seems to be a drawing card for workers skipping out. Jennifer Hansen, the general manager at the TGI Fridays in Wilkes-Barre, said the bar area had a typical mid-day Friday crowd, though the ones who were there at 2:30 p.m. were watching the games on the bar’s multiple televisions.

in several local newspapers in 2009 and 2010. Caputo rejected that argument, noting that none of the news articles cited by the defense identified the sources of the information as being government agents. Caputo also rejected Munchak’s request to be tried separately from Cordaro. Munchak had argued his defense would be harmed if the men were tried together because Cordaro is charged with more counts than him. Caputo said the mere fact Cordaro is charged with more counts is not, by itself, grounds to hold separate trials. He noted the men are charged with engaging in a scheme and series of transactions, which supports the government’s position they should be tried together. Regarding the change of venue, Caputo said he believed that motion was premature as a jury questionnaire that will be sent out will allow the court to assess the impartiality of the jury pool. Caputo did grant motions that will require the government to turn over any evidence of other alleged crimes or wrongdoing committed by Cordaro and Munchak, which are not included in the indictment, but that it may present at trial.

STATE OPINION: NEW LAWSUIT

Use tobacco fund for health efforts

F

IDDLING WITH the state’s annual payout from the tobacco settlement funds has been Pennsylvania’s dirty little secret. Ed Rendell did it repeatedly since 2005, with support from the Legislature. Now it’s one of the few initiatives of the Rendell administration that’s been adopted by his successor. Gov. Tom Corbett wants to spend $220 million from the fund to supplement a new loan program intended to make it easier for companies to navigate the state’s bureaucracy and boost job creation. Red tape is bad and new jobs are good, that’s for sure; but is it wise to continue to raid a fund that is supposed to help ameliorate the negative health impact and added costs of smoking cigarettes? We don’t think so, and neither do the plaintiffs who filed a lawsuit to attempt to revive the state’s recently defunct adultBasic health insur-

ance program for the working poor. Three individuals were adultBasic subscribers until the program’s funding ended Feb. 28, and they’ve asked Commonwealth Court for a remedy. If Gov. Corbett wanted to, he could get behind the effort to restart adultBasic, providing a bridge for 41,000 working Pennsylvanians. The Legislature, too, has a remedy at its disposal. It could abide by the spirit of the Tobacco Settlement Act and ensure the funds are allocated directly to health-related initiatives instead of using the dollars to plug holes in the General Fund budget. Now, with the filing of the lawsuit, the judicial branch joins the executive and legislative in having an opportunity to solve this problem. There’s got to be a way to restore this low-price, highquality basic coverage plan. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

New economic policies needed for nation to prosper HIGH unemployment makes it easy to forget that the U.S. economy is the world’s strongest. We have the most productive work force. Our combination of plentiful capital, entrepreneurial ability and flexible labor means that growth is our natural tendency. And for all of our perceived problems, the economy has been growing – just not robustly. To understand where we are headed, we need to keep in mind that the recession ended in June 2009. At that point, the government already had “bailed out’’ car companies, banks and insurance companies. Government control of private businesses has been one of Washington’s usual responses to recessions. That was the case with the takeovers of the railroads in the 1970s, the savings and loan associations in the 1980s and the bank bailouts of the 1990s. Once again, the federal government reacted too late to a deepening recession. Upon taking office, the Obama administration developed an $800 billion stimulus program designed to fight the recession, which ended just a few months later with less than $100 billion having been spent. Instead of declaring victory and shifting to a policy geared for the recovery, the administration kept on spending. The unfortunate result has been a ramp up of debt without the payoff of an economic recovery or job growth. In January, our new Republican-led Congress trumpeted a program of debt reduction, grounded in immediate spending cuts. Despite the congressional members’ view that the federal deficit is an urgent problem, they are proposing a scant $60 billion in

MAIL BAG

TIMOTHY KEARNEY cuts from a total spending package of $3.7 trillion. If debt reduction is the GOP’s goal, their first move was a baby step – at best. Taken together, it is easy to see why economic policy in the United States – fiscal pump priming versus austerity – remains in limbo. The fundamental problem is that neither approach is based on the principle that growth and prosperity ultimately come from incentives to work better, to work longer and to innovate. Controlling deficits and spending is important for the long term, but not for the immediate future. The real, long-term solution to most of our country’s economic maladies is higher economic growth, which will generate jobs and reduce the national deficit. That’s the lesson of the late 1990s when major tax cuts on capital and other pro-growth policies generated an economic boom and a budget surplus. Unfortunately, even the bipartisan policies coming out of Washington today are not focusing on improving long-term incentives. The two major tax law changes approved late last year – maintaining income tax rates at 2010 levels for two years and reducing payroll taxes – are helpful, but they will not stimulate the economy as much as some people believe. The temporary reduction in payroll taxes is similar to other short-term tax cuts that already have been used by Presidents George W. Bush and Obama. History shows that consumers make purchases based on

their “permanent” incomes, not on temporary money flow. That is, consumers are smart enough to base their decisions on income they expect over the long haul. Temporary tax cuts historically have lead consumers to save and to pay down debt. With consumers already reducing debt levels, that scenario is likely to be repeated, which is good for the long term but not for the here and now. It’s also concerning that there has been no policy response to the sharp rise in oil prices due to the turmoil in the Middle East. In the recent past, higher energy prices have contributed to recessions in 1973-75, 1980 and 2008-09. In fact, the peak of $147 per barrel of oil in 2008 contributed to the deepest recession since 1981-82. Higher oil prices act like a tax hike, reducing disposable income. We risk another economic downturn if oil prices remain at today’s inflated levels. Our national economy is at a crossroads. It is time for our elected leaders to reform the nation’s economic policies. A bi-partisan effort to lower tax rates, offer fewer exemptions, offset higher oil prices, end corporate welfare and reform entitlements can create a business environment that fosters economic growth that benefits everyone.

“We should have preserved what we had and stabilized it so that 10 or 15 years down the road the building would still be there and not go the way of the Hotel Casey in Scranton,” he said. “Unfortunately, that advice was just not heeded.” The 113-year-old landmark hotel at the corner of busy Market and River streets in downtown Wilkes-Barre faces demolition, though the specifics won’t be known until CityVest, the property’s nonprofit owner and developer, releases a report about the structure and its limitations in the near future. CityVest Executive Director Alex Rogers took issue with Handman’s assertions and said the nonprofit relied on project manager Lincoln Property Co.’s expert opinion on what work should be completed with the limited funds allocated for the project. A total $7 million in government funding has been spent on the project to date. Roughly $5.6 million of that allocation was spent on the payment of back taxes before CityVest acquired it, the demolition of an attached 14-story high-rise, the abatement of environmental

Development of a mothball plan was one of the primary reasons CityVest hired Handman’s firm at the start of the Sterling preservation project, Handman said. Mothballing involves roof repairs and window sealing to stop moisture from penetrating the structure and ventilation to keep air flowing inside so trapped moisture doesn’t rot the interior. For example: the historic Stegmaier Building on WilkesBarre Boulevard was mothballed to keep it preserved for years as it awaited development into an office building, said Handman, of Eyerman, Csala,

A military official said the young man was rescued Saturday from the rubble in Kesennuma, a city in one of the most devastated areas. The official says the man was transferred to a nearby hospital, but he is too weak to talk. Kyodo, the Japanese news agency, says the man was in his 20s. The rescue is the latest and one of the few after the disaster, as the power of the tsunami, triggered by the magnitude-9 earthquake, likely pulled many people out to sea.

Graham Andrew, a senior official of the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency, suggested the diplomat’s comments reflected his own feelings. “We want to study the data carefully, but one-billionth shows just how far away it is from human danger,” he said. “For members of the public, the dose limit in the air or ingested is 1 milisievert a year and this is 1000 million times less than that.” Graham said that — after consultation with the IAEA — the International Civil Aviation Organization found there was no reason to curtail normal international flights and maritime operations to and form Japan and “there is no medical basis for imposing additional measures to protect passengers.” The CTBTO forecast earlier this week that some radioactivity would reach Southern California by Friday.

installation of a new roof membrane and repairs to the gutters, copper cornices and atrium skylight, he said. The roof of the hotel is shaped like a square with a hole in the middle. At the center is a lower-level atrium topped with a covered skylight at the thirdfloor level of the seven-story structure, he said. The roof slopes inward, draining into massive gutters on the edges of the center opening, Handman said. The chosen window option – installing new glass in all the broken windows – would have cost $39,600 at the time, Handman said. An alternative – covering all window openings with plywood – would have cost around $587,000 because of the equipment required to access the windows from the exterior, he said. A basic ventilation system would have cost $80,630 in addition to a $6,000-a-year operating expense, he said. Handman said CityVest declined to act on his recommendations, and his company was not retained after CityVest hired Lincoln Property, Philadelphia, in September 2003. The company was paid a total $520,100 as project manager. Handman said he submitted a revised roof repair proposal in November 2003 but received no response. CityVest later autho-

graphic obtained Thursday by the AP showed a moving plume reaching the U.S. mainland after racing across the Pacific and swiping the Aleutian Islands. The comments Friday reflected expectations by IAEA officials and independent experts that radiation levels — which are relatively low outside of the immediate vicinity of the Japanese plant — would dissipate so strongly by the time it reached the U.S. coastline that it would pose no health risk whatsoever to residents. A presentation Friday showed radiation levels peaking in Tokyo and other cities in the first days of the disaster at levels officials said were well below risk points before tapering off. “The rates in Tokyo and other cities ... remain far from levels which require action, in other words they are not dangerous to human health,” said Andrew. While set up to monitor atmospheric nuclear testing, the CTBTO’s worldwide network of stations can detect earthquakes, tsunamis and fallout from nuclear accidents such as the disaster on Japan’s northeastern coast that was set off by a massive earthquake and a devastating tsunami a week ago. Since then, emergency crews have

No response from CityVest Handman said he again contacted CityVest in September 2004 to request completion of the mothballing that he had identified as a need in 2003 but received no response. But Rogers said CityVest gave Lincoln a copy of Handman’s report, and Lincoln recommended roof patching with continued monitoring. A local company was paid $21,624 for roof repairs, and another company later received $15,000 for additional roof work, records show. “Lincoln’s professional advice was to patch the roof and continue to monitor the roof on an ongoing basis,” Rogers said. Rogers said he’s become frustrated that people are critiquing CityVest when nobody else expressed a willingness to tackle the challenging Sterling project. Many don’t realize that CityVest successfully restored two rundown single family homes and a deteriorated former Wilkes University dorm on South Franklin Street near the intersection of Ross Street in Wilkes-Barre, he said. “Those properties are now occupied and back on the tax rolls. That project has been a

tremendous benefit to that historic neighborhood,” Rogers said. CityVest also acquired an abandoned and decaying building on North Main Street that was later torn down. A new building in its place includes King’s College housing and a coffee shop, he said. Rogers said the soon-to-be-released report on the Sterling will show that numerous developers rejected the property because of costly structural repairs – independent of the roof – that would be required to adapt the building for reuse. “We tried to exhaust every opportunity to give that building every chance of being redeveloped,” Rogers said. Handman, who has been working on the Luzerne County Courthouse restoration project, said he expects the upcoming CityVest report will say the deterioration of the project has gone “beyond the point of no return.” He doesn’t believe the low ceilings are an impediment in developing the property, as some have stated, because interior walls may be moved. The exterior walls are made of brick and stone, he said. “You just gut everything down to the structure, stabilize the structure and rebuild,” Handman said. “I look forward to seeing the report.”

There should be no doubt about the Libyan leader’s intentions “because he has made them clear,” Obama said. “Just yesterday, speaking of the city of Benghazi, a city of roughly 700,000, he threatened ‘we will have no mercy and no pity.’ No mercy on his own citizens.” Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum criticized Obama’s policy toward Libya as "indecisive" and said if current trends continue the United States’ role in world affairs will to "simply be the military for the United Nations." Santorum criticized the president Thursday night before a Fayette County Republican dinner in Uniontown, which is about 40 milessouthofPittsburgh,thePittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Friday.

with the 1979 Three Mile Island accident. The International Nuclear Event Scale defines a Level 4 incident as having local consequences and a Level 5 as having wider consequences. Nuclear experts have been saying for days that Japan was underplaying the severity of the nuclear crisis.

"He’s been on the side of tyrants when the tyrants were our enemies, and he’s been on the side of the revolutionaries when the authoritarian regime was our friend," Santorum said. Santorum has yet to formally declare a 2012 run for the presidency, but has been making frequent political appearances in key states that appear to be the groundwork for one. Santorum lost his re-election bid to remain Pennsylvania’s junior Senate member in 2006, and now lives and votes in Virginia. He said he’ll decide whether to run for the presidency sometime this spring. Parts of eastern Libya, where the once-confident rebels this week found their hold slipping, erupted into celebration at the passage of the U.N. resolution on Libya. But the timing and consequences of any international military action remained unclear. Misrata, Libya’s third-largest city and the last held by rebels in the west, came under sustained assault well after the cease-fire announcement, according to rebels and a doctor there. The doctor, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he feared repri-

sals, said Gadhafi’s snipers were on rooftops and his forces were searching homes for rebels. “The shelling is continuing, and they are using flashlights to perform surgery. We don’t have anesthetic to put our patients down,” said the doctor, who counted 25 deaths since the morning. The rebels still hold eastern Libya, which has most of the country’s oil reserves. Oil prices slid after the cease-fire announcement, plunging about $2.50 in the first15 minutesofNewYorktrading.They were down slightly for the week, settling at $101.07 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Mustafa Gheriani, a spokesman for the rebels, said the opposition is considering calling Gadhafi’s bluff by holding new protests in Tripoli and elsewhere in Gadhafi’s western strongholds to see if his forces open fire. “The idea is that when he cannot bomb civilians, the whole world will see that Libya does not want him,” Gheriani said. “I believe his troops in Tripoli will leave him. We want to make our revolution a peaceful one again, just surround his compound and make him leave.”

PIAA BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT

Royals blitzed in fourth

Lancaster Catholic beats Holy Redeemer with late run By JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com

OREFIELD — As quickly as Holy Redeemer erased one deficit Friday night, another began forming on the horizon. And this time, the Royals had no time left to react. Lancaster Catholic went on a 15-2 run after Redeemer tied the game early in the fourth quarter to eliminate the Royals from the PIAA Class 3A boys basketball playoffs with a 56-41 victory in a quarterfinal game at Parkland High School. The District 3 champion Crusaders improved to 29-1 and will play District 12 and

defending state champion Neumann-Goretti (25-4) in LANCASTER the semifinals on Tuesday. CATHOLIC District 2 champ Redeemer ended its season at 24-5. “The second half of the game, we came out a little HOLY flat,” said Redeemer coach REDEEMER Mark Belenski, whose team trailed 25-24 at halftime. “I talked about second shots, and they came right out and got three shots at the basket. “Right there, I scratched my head and said, ‘It’s going to be a long half.’ They took it to us. They wanted it more than we did and played

a little more aggressive defensively.” The loss marked the third consecutive season the District 3 champion ousted the District 2 champion in the quarterfinals. But after battling back from a 35-27 deficit midway through the third quarter, it appeared Redeemer had an excellent shot at breaking the drought. Pete Alexis, the Royals’ 6-foot-11 center, grabbed an errant three-point attempt and scored the fourth quarter’s first basket to tie the score 39-39. But then came six consecutive Redeemer misses that allowed the CruSee ROYALS, Page 3B

Simply because for once at states, she wasn’t last. Edwards finished her preliminary run of the girls Class 3A 200yard freestyle in 2:01.58 – slower than her District 2 championship-winning time but a bit faster than the 2:01.72 of Archbishop Carroll’s Christine Loughery. That meant Edwards, who’s always been seeded at the very back of the 32-swimmer fields she’s competed in during state competition, moved up a slot after four years of trying to place 31st. “That’s what I said, I finally beat someone,” Edwards said gleefully. Edwards averted last place Friday morning with one of those late surges she’s become known for throughout her illustrious swimming career at Hazleton Area, passing Loughery in the second half of the last lap to find a higher placement in the 200 freestyle event. “Bria always gives it everything she has,” Hazleton Area coach Michelle Yakubowski said. “If I see someone next to me, it just kicks in,” said Edwards, explaining her penchant for finding See SWIMMING, Page 3B

Alexis posts big night in final game for Royals The Penn State-bound senior finished with 24 points and nearly had a triple-double.

By DAVE KONOPKI dkonopki@timesleader.com

OREFIELD — The constant running up and down the court, and playing four quarters with two or three defenders constantly draped on him wasn’t the reason Pete Alexis took a deep breath near the locker room after the game. He was trying to control his emotions. The Holy Redeemer senior scored a team-high 24 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and blocked nine shots, but it wasn’t enough for the Royals to avoid a 60-51 loss to Lancaster Catholic in the quarterfinals of the PIAA Class 3A boys basketball playoffs. “I love these guys,” said the 6foot-11 Alexis. “We’re family. We’re always going to be family.” The Penn State-bound Alexis

concluded his outstanding high school career Friday night at Parkland High School. His personal numbers were impressive, but the final numbers on the scoreboard weren’t what he wanted. And the Lancaster Catholic defense had plenty to do with it. “Their defense is tenacious,” Alexis said. “They were on us for all four quarters. They’re in your face the entire game.” Putting two and three defenders on Alexis each time up the floor was exactly the game plan for the Crusaders, said coach Joey Klazas. “We knew (Alexis) had a very strong inside game,” Klazas said. “We put three guys on him to make sure he had pressure all night. We were also trying to make the entry passes as difficult as possible.” Alexis scored 10 points and blocked seven shots in the first two quarters. Despite the blocked shots, the undersized Crusaders – whose tallest player is 6-4 – didn’t back down from

the Redeemer center. “They kept coming at us,” Alexis said. “They never stopped.” Alexis picked up his third foul in the third quarter, but never came out of the game. He continued his strong play in the second half, scoring eight of his 14 second-half points after grabbing an offensive rebound. But the Royals struggled to consistently put the ball in the hands of their big man. Still, Redeemer coach Mark Belenski praised the efforts of his players. “They played hard and they played well,” he said. “Kudos to our kids, especially our seniors. I’ve learned more from them this season than they did from me. They’re all great kids and they’re going to be successful in life.’’ Including Alexis during the next four seasons at Penn State. “Pete had a great high school career,” Belenski said. “But his best days are ahead of him.” Alexis, who finished his high school career with approximate-

saders to turn up the tempo and eventually take over with a 50-41 lead with just over two minutes to play. “We’ve seen it all year, all the guard pressure and we’ve handled it,” Redeemer guard Austin Carr said. “Just not tonight, for some reason we couldn’t handle it. A team out of the area, we don’t really know them. Films don’t teach you their defense and how it’s going to be in real life.” Lancaster Catholic knew what to expect from Alexis, and the Penn State recruit turned in one of his finest performances in his final time in a Redeemer uniform. Alexis scored a game-high 24 points, shooting 11-of-14 from the field, grabbed 13 rebounds and nearly pulled off a triple-double by making nine blocks. Yet he too had to deal with the Crusaders swarming to him when he touched the ball. “Their defense was tenacious,” Alexis said. “They were all over us for all four quarters. We usually don’t see that back at home. It was four quarters of straight man-to-man or zone and always in your face.” Compounding Lancaster Catholic’s fourth-quarter surge was poor shooting by Redeemer. Alexis hit both of his fourth-quarter shots, but the rest of the Royals finished 0-of-16 from the field. That included an 0-for-11 effort from beyond the arc in an attempt to rally quickly. “We talked at halftime and said they made some big shots,” Lancaster Catholic coach Joey Klazas said, “but if we continue the pressure I thought we could be more aggressive and wear them down a little bit. I think we did. They were tired at the end of the game.” The game started well for Redeemer as forward Steve Ruch knocked down a pair of three-

Ruch finished with three field goals in the first quarter, but over the final three quarters Alexis scored nine of the Royals’ 12 baskets. Conference tournament to get into the tournament. Quincy Diggs led Akron with 11 points. The Zips shot only 35.9 percent and 7-foot center Zeke Marshall was just 2-for-13 from the floor.

Penguins coach not focused on record

The team is four victories away from a season record and can clinch a playoff berth tonight. By TOM VENESKY tvenesky@timesleader.com

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins coach John Hynes doesn’t think about the fact that his team can clinch a playoff spot tonight with a win over the Worcester Sharks. He doesn’t really care that the Penguins are on the verge of winning the East Division, laying claim to the best record in the AHL and setting a team record for wins in a season. The 2005-06 squad posted 51 wins. Heading into tonight’s game at Mohegan Sun Arena, this season’s U P N E X T team has 48 with 13 games re- Worcester Sharks at W-B/ maining. But Hynes Scranton Penguins doesn’t really WHEN: 7:05 give such acco- p.m. tonight lades much WHERE: Mohethought. He’s fo- gan Sun Arena, cused on some- Wilkes-Barre Township thing else. “Our goal is to be the best team we can be. I know it sounds cliché, but in reality it’s tough to have these (other) goals because you don’t know what the circumstances are going to be,” Hynes said. “To me, it’s more about finding ways to win games. Everything else follows along with that.” So it’s no surprise that Hynes is more interested to see how his team responds tonight at home on the heels of a four-game road trip through western Canada that earned the Penguins seven points. A good starting point would be for the Penguins to pick up where they left off on Wednesday’s comefrom-behind 4-1 win over Manitoba. “We just want to make sure we get back to how we ended against Manitoba,” Hynes said. “We have to be the team that plays the best when the puck drops, and the players did a good job of doing that this week.” The Penguins had the day off on Friday after going 3-0-0-1 during the road trip and because of the extensive travel returning home from Wednesday night’s game at Manitoba. Hynes felt the time away from the ice would help his players when it comes time to get back on it tonight. “It should help mentally. I’m glad it’s a nice day out. They can come back re-energized,” he said.

pointer and Scott hit a jumper from the baseline, was fouled and converted a three-point play for a 55-44 lead. In the first half, Hansbrough started a 10-0 spurt with a jumper and capped it with a 3-pointer that gave the Irish a 16-6 lead against the slow-starting Zips. Akron misfired on11of its first 13 field goal attempts and 7-foot Zeke Marshall was 0-for-6 early, including a missed slam dunk.

wanted,” Grego said. “I felt strong in the water, it’s just like I couldn’t go anywhere. (But) I was trying my best. Everything just came out of me.” On the boys side, it took all the energy Tunkhannock swimmers had in reserve just to bump up a few spots. David Novak moved up one spot from where he was seeded to 30th by finishing the 200 freestyle in 1:48.63. Ben Spencer jumped from 29th to finish 27th in the 200 IM with a time of 2:00.10. And their Tigers teammate, Matt Kupchunas, swam the 100 butterfly in 53.98 seconds to remain where he was seeded, at

31st. “It means a lot,” Novak said. “The district competition is not as really high as the states. I wanted to go faster than I did at districts. I didn’t quite get there, but it was good.” That sense of satisfaction might not have shown in the standings, but to the Tigers, it was real. They moved up this season to Class 3A from Class 2A, where times are generally slower. “They’re a lot deeper with the speed,” said Novak, who competed in the PIAA 500 freestyle in Class 2A last season. “It’s real deep. They’re all just fast. Nothing you can really do different,

NOTES On the injury front, Hynes said Joe Vitale is day-to-day and likely won’t play tonight. Defensemen Joey Mormina and Carl Sneep will be out this weekend and goaltender John Curry, who left Wednesday’s contest after the first period, should be back by Monday. Hynes said Curry’s situation is “real minor” and he needs rest more than anything.

It’s a little different (class). They stepped up to the challenge.” Even when the challenge was too great to get them near the medal stand. “It was decent,” Spencer said of his IM. “Not my best, but good.

Buckeyes roll in opener The Associated Press

CLEVELAND — Close to home, Ohio State lived up to its No. 1 billing. William Buford scored 18 points, freshman Jared Sullinger added 11 before getting some extended rest, and Ohio State looked every inch the part of a No. 1 overall seed in rolling to a 75-46 win over Texas-San Antonio in the second round of the NCAA tournament Friday. Playing a two-hour drive from their Columbus campus, the Buckeyes (33-2) were cheered on by more than 15,000 fans, who made Quicken Loans Arena feel just like home. Ohio State built a 16-point halftime lead, ballooned it to 38 in the second half and were never threatened by the No. 16 seed Roadrunners (20-14). The blowout allowed Ohio State coach Thad Matta to rest his starters for Sunday’s East region matchup with George Mason, a 61-57 winner over Villanova.

North Carolina 102, Long Island University 87 CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Tyler Zeller scored 32 points, John Henson added 28, and North Carolina used its hulking size to overcame sloppiness in its return to the NCAA tournament in a victory over scrappy Long Island University. Harrison Barnes added 24 points and 16 rebounds for the second-seeded Tar Heels (27-7) who eventually wore down the 15th-seeded Blackbirds (27-6).

The win was the first in the NCAA tournament for the 11thseeded Golden Eagles (21-14) in two years. Marquette will play Indiana State or Syracuse on Sunday in the East region.

They were once ranked as high as No. 5 but failed to get out of the first weekend of the NCAA tournament for the second straight year. Hancock scored 18 points, and Morrison had 10 points and 11 rebounds for George Mason, which won its opening tournament game for the first time since its Final Four run in 2006.

trailed by 10 in the first half only to inch their way back. Isaiah Tate popped George Mason’s first 3 of the second half with 1:57 left to make it 54-51, and the Wildcats crumbled from the freethrow line. Antonio Pena missed two and Mouphtaou Yarou clanked the front end of a one-andone. Morrison took advantage, dunking in a miss with 55 seconds left for George Mason’s first lead since early in the game. After Corey Fisher drew a foul on a 3-point attempt and made all of them for a 57-56 lead, Hancock followed with the biggest shot of his career.

Devils’ playoff hopes dwindling after defeat The Associated Press

NEWARK, N.J. — Rookie Michal Neuvirth stopped 33 shots for his fourth shutout and the Washington Capitals put another dagger in the New Jersey Devils’ playoff hopes with a 3-0 victory on Friday night. Defenseman Jeff Schultz broke an 81-game goal drought and Alex Ovechkin made a pair of fantastic passes to set up goals by goals by Mike Knuble as the Capitals bounced back from a loss, despite recording only 12 shots. The win gave the Capitals 94 points, tying them for first place in the Eastern Conference with idle Philadelphia. The loss was the second in as many nights for New Jersey and left it six points behind idle Buffalo in the race for the eighth and final playoff berth in the East with 11 games to play. Rangers 6, Canadiens 3 NEW YORK — Ryan Callahan, Marian Gaborik and Brian Boyle scored 1:07 apart in the Rangers’ highest-scoring first period in more than 11 years, and New York held on for a key victory.

Henrik Lundqvist held off the Canadiens late and finished with 22 saves to reach 30 wins for the sixth straight season. P.K. Subban, Brian Gionta and James Wisniewski scored for Montreal.

The Wilkes baseball team scored four runs in the eighth inning to complete a 7-5 comeback win over Eastern on Friday in the Freedom Conference opener for both teams. Down 3-0 entering the fifth, Scott Skammer hit a two-run single and scored on an error to tie the game. Then in the eighth, Matt Ruch added an RBI double and Angus Neary capped off the Colonels’ scoring with a three-run homer that proved to be the difference. Al Clocker struck out five while giving up three earned runs in seven innings to pick up the win for Wilkes (6-4, 1-0).

WORLD CUP SKIING

Vonn vs. Riesch for overall crown The Associated Press

LENZERHEIDE, Switzerland — Lindsey Vonn and Maria Riesch predicted their five-month fight for the World Cup overall title would come down to the last race. It has. The forecast today is for sunshine and high drama, with the two-way race for the giant crystal globe trophy to be decided by two giant slalom runs down a steep Swiss hillside. Vonn is looking to extend her era of domination, trailing by just three points in her bid for a fourth straight title. Riesch, a distant runner-up the past two years, is chasing an elusive first overall crown.

Riesch did just enough to take the lead Friday, finishing fourth while Vonn was 13th in a tense slalom won by Tina Maze of Slovenia. Yet the German’s threepoint edge on her American friend can be lost in hundredths of a second, with a race victory worth 100 points. “I know I have a chance to be in there. I’ll fight and see what happens,” said Vonn, who led by 27 points following Wednesday’s downhill. It’s a perfect scenario for Alpine skiing — two 26-yearold marketable racers, who are best friends and biggest rivals, slugging it out to the end. “My chances are 50-50,” Riesch said.

SPRING TRAINING

Burnett struck by liner in N.Y. loss Rubby De La Rosa threw four hitless innings in his second spring start. De La Rosa, the Dodgers’ minor league player of the year last season, has not allowed a run in his last eight innings spanning three outings. Giants starter Jeff Suppan, competing for the long relief spot in the bullpen, allowed two runs and seven hits over four innings.

Castillo released from team

he New York Mets released second baseman Luis Castillo on Friday T despite still owing him $6 million, cutting ties with a three-time All-Star linked to one of the most painful plays in team history. Mets fans never forgave him for dropping a potential game-ending popup by Alex Rodriguez in 2009, a misplay that let the New York Yankees score two runs to win in the bottom of the ninth. Castillo was booed — a rarity in spring training — this week after he was slow to cover first base during an exhibition game. Luis Hernandez, Daniel Murphy, Justin Turner and Brad Emaus will compete for the starting job at second base.

HOUSTON ASTROS

Myers faces Phils in opener

JUPITER, Fla. — Brett Myers will start the Houston Astros’ season opener in Philadelphia against his former team. Myers is in his second season with the Astros. Roy Oswalt, who’s now in Philadelphia, started Houston’s last eight opening days. Astros manager Brad Mills says he’s “thrilled” with Myers as the opening day starter, adding “there’s nobody else we would want there.” Myers went 14-8 with a 3.14 ERA in 2010, his first year with the Astros after pitching the previous eight years for the Phillies. The 30-year-old is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA in four starts this spring. NEW YORK YANKEES

Gardner leaves with bruise

New York left fielder Brett Gardner left Friday’s game against Toronto after being thrown out trying to score from second on a third-inning single. Gardner fouled a ball off his right shin, bruising it, in Thursday night’s game, and was not running at full speed in the game with the Blue Jays. “The clutch was slipping,” Gardner said jokingly. “I’m good. I’m not worried about it. Just a little swollen. Just a little bruise.” Gardner used a shin pad in Friday’s game for added protection. Also, injured New York Yankees’ pitchers Joba Chamberlain and Pedro Feliciano are scheduled to throw off a bullpen mound on Saturday. LOS ANGELES DODGERS

Blake could end up on DL

Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Casey Blake might start the season on the disabled list after hurting his back. Blake was hurt while trying to beat out a bunt. He was 1 for 13 (.077) this spring. Blake was scheduled to play catch earlier Friday. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly says if Blake does end up on the disabled list he may move Juan Uribe to third base to start the season. MINOR LEAGUE BASEBALL

Five hit with 50-game bans

Five minor league pitchers in the Dominican Summer League have been suspended 50 games each after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. Eliseo Batista from the Yankees organization, Marcos Coca and Daniel DelaCruz from the Philadelphia system, Ruben Mejia from the San Diego system and Jose Williams of the Cincinnati organization were penalized Friday. The suspensions of all five players will start at the opening of the 2011 Dominican Summer League season.

DUNEDIN, Fla. — A.J. Burnett was hit by a line drive in the first inning and hurt by his own wildness and catcher Russell Martin’s sloppy play in the New York Yankees’ 6-5 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday. Burnett was struck on the upper part of his right buttock by Juan Rivera’s liner but remained in the game. He then had the same control problems that plagued him last season, throwing two wild pitches while giving up four runs and five hits in four innings. Martin committed two errors and allowed a passed ball, and threw poorly on three Blue Jays stolen bases. Toronto’s Brandon Morrow worked five shutout innings, giving up three hits and striking out six. Jose Molina homered in the third inning for the Blue Jays. Mets 3, Braves 0 PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — David Wright hit a two-run homer and an RBI single in the New York Mets’ victory over the Atlanta Braves. Wright, who was batting just .200 entering the game, drove in a run on a base hit in the fourth inning, then hit a long homer over the left field wall in the sixth inning. It was his first home run of the spring. Braves starting pitcher Jair Jurrjens gave up three runs — two earned — on five hits with two strikeouts and no walks in six innings. He was perfect through the first three innings, but Jose Reyes reached on an error in the fourth. Oliver Perez, contending for a lefty specialist role in the Mets’ bullpen, walked one but retired the side in the sixth. Cardinals 10, Nationals 4 VIERA, Fla. — Jamie Garcia pitched four effective innings, drove in two runs and scored on a wild pitch for St. Louis. Garcia allowed two runs and five hits, walked two and struck out one. He also had an RBI single and an RBI groundout in two at-bats. Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann was hit hard, giving up six runs and eight hits in four innings. He walked two and threw two wild pitches. Phillies 3, Pirates 2 CLEARWATER, Fla. — Pirates right-hander Brad Lincoln was struck in his pitching arm by Jimmy Rollins’ line drive and forced to leave early with a bruise. Lincoln, a big part of the Pirates’ future, was hit in the third inning and quickly tracked down the ball near the first-base line. Rollins appeared startled by the accident and slowed down, and Lincoln tapped the Phillies

Angels 7, Padres 6 TEMPE, Ariz. — Bobby Abreu hit his first two homers of the spring and Brandon Wood connected for the third time for the Angels. Angels Right-hander Ervin Santana worked four innings in his fourth start, allowing four hits and two earned runs. The Padres’ Dustin Moseley allowed eight hits and six runs in his third spring start. Royals 6, Indians (ss) 5 SURPRISE, Ariz. — Chris Getz had two hits and two RBIs, right-hander Kyle Davies yielded two runs and six hits in five innings and Melky Cabrera went 2 for 3 with a double to raise his Cactus League-leading average to .518. Left-hander David Huff, who is competing for a spot in the Indians rotation, allowed three runs on six hits in 2 1-3 innings.

Astros 9, Marlins 2 JUPITER, Fla. — Ricky Nolasco gave up seven runs in his second spring start for Florida. Nolasco, whose start to spring training was delayed because of a sore right thumb allowed eight hits in two innings. In his first start in March 13, he was tagged for four runs in 1 2-3 innings against the Nationals. Left-hander J.A. Happ allowed an unearned run on four hits in five innings for Houston, his longest start of the spring. Wilton Lopes, Houston’s setup man, pitched another scoreless inning. He hasn’t allowed a hit in six innings this spring. Tigers 8, Red Sox 3 FORT MYERS, Fla. — Max

Scherzer gave up two runs pitching into the fifth inning and Ryan Raburn hit a threerun homer for Detroit. Scherzer allowed two hits and three walks in 4 1-3 innings He struck out two. Clay Buchholz yielded three runs — one earned — and five hits in four innings. He walked two and struck out one. Brennan Boesch and Andy Dirks also homered for the Tigers. Boston’s Ryan Kalish had two hits, a walk, scored a runs and stole two bases. Rockies 9, Brewers 7 SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Ty Wigginton and Ben Paulsen each drove in two runs and Greg Reynolds went six innings for Colorado. Reynolds, who got through the third unscathed, gave up six runs and nine hits. Carlos Gonzalez, Troy Tulowitzki, Ryan Spilborghs and Jose Morales also drove in runs for the Rockies, who won their 10th in the last 12 games.

Prince Fielder hit a threerun homer and Ryan Braun had two hits and drove in a run for the Brewers. Diamondbacks 8, Mariners 5 PEORIA, Ariz. — Mariners closer Brandon League blew a one-run lead in the top of the ninth inning. The Diamondbacks scored four runs off League with only one hit and a sacrifice fly. League walked three and the Mariners made an error in the inning. Milton Bradley hit a tworun homer in the third inning. Former Mariner Willie Bloomquist had two hits and a game-tying RBI, and Tony Abreu doubled twice and scored twice. Gerardo Parra added a hit and a run batted in. Dodgers 6, Giants 3 SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Matt Kemp tripled and drove in a run and Andre Ethier added an RBI double to lead Los Angeles.

Reds 14, Cubs 13 MESA, Ariz. — NL MVP Joey Votto hit a two-run homer, Scott Rolen had a three-run shot and Cincinnati outlasted the Cubs. Votto knocked in the goahead run with a single in the sixth inning before a crowd of 13,182, the fourth-largest in HoHoKam Park history. Starlin Castro hit a threerun homer for Chicago. Cubs pitchers Carlos Zambrano and Carlos Silva struggled. Zambrano, the starter, gave up six runs and seven hits in 4 2-3 innings. Silva entered in the sixth and yielded eight runs (five earned) on 11 hits in three innings. White Sox 18, Athletics 1 GLENDALE, Ariz. — Carlos Quentin had four hits, including a homer, and drove in four runs to power the Chicago White Sox to a rout of the Oakland Athletics. Quentin singled and doubled twice, but he wasn’t the only White Sox hitter who had a big day. Paul Konerko homered and drove in three runs, and Gordon Beckham had three hits, three RBIs and scored four runs. Tyler Flowers added a two-run homer in the eighth. John Danks pitched six solid innings for Chicago, yielding four hits and a run. He had four strikeouts and no walks — control had been a problem for him this spring.

‘Talkin’ Baseball’ composer to perform at Cooperstown Cashman’s song will be a part of this summer’s Hall of Fame induction weekend. The Associated Press

As a minor league pitcher, Dennis Minogue hardly had Hall of Fame talent. Once he changed his tune — and name — and forever linked Willie, Mickey and the Duke, he earned his spot in Cooperstown. The Hall will honor “Talkin’ Baseball” composer and singer Terry Cashman this summer as part of induction weekend, 30 years after his song became a ballpark favorite. Funny thing, the popular refrain almost included another player. “I kept trying to fit Joe DiMaggio into the song and it wasn’t working,” Cashman told The Associated Press this week. Once he dropped Joe D, the

most familiar verse flowed rather easily. “It just came into my head that way,” Cashman said. “I sat down and wrote the whole thing in 20 minutes.” Cashman said he was inspired to write the song by a picture of all four great center fielders walking across the field at Shea Stadium during an Old-Timers’ Day. He liked the photo so much, in fact, he bought the rights to use it. Cashman, 69, also was stirred by the memory of debates he had on the street corners of New York in the 1950s over which of the three future Hall of Famers was best. Being a Giants fan, Mays was his guy. Cashman said, however, that’s not why Willie’s name came first in the song — it simply sounded better that way. Mays is the only one still alive from that famed trio. Mantle died more than 15 years ago and

Snider passed away last month, with “Talkin’ Baseball” often playing in memory for the Duke of Flatbush. “And Willie will soon be 80,” Cashman said. Cashman will perform his

song once again during ceremonies on July 23 that hail a writer and broadcaster, as well as executive Roland Hemond for lifetime achievement. The next day, Roberto Alomar, Bert Blyleven and Pat Gillick will be inducted.

“Just the idea I’m in the baseball Hall of Fame is like heaven for me,” he said by phone from his home in the Bronx. His original sheet music for the song, incidentally, is already part of the Cooperstown collection. “’Talkin’ Baseball’ symbolizes the spirit of New York baseball in the 1950s and ’60s and the timeless love for the national pastime for every baseball fan whose enjoyed Terry’s ballad over the years,” Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson said Friday. “We are pleased to honor Terry and his classic tribute to the game and its great players.” Last year, the Hall recognized John Fogerty and “Centerfield” on its 25th anniversary, marking the first time a musician or a song had been singled out for tribute during the festivities. Cashman was among the visitors in town that day and heard the performance.

Edwards earns pole at Bristol Roush Fenway continues its strong run, claiming the top two spots for Sunday’s race. The Associated Press

BRISTOL, Tenn. — Roush Fenway Racing continued its strong qualifying runs Friday by sweeping the pole at Bristol Motor Speedway. Carl Edwards turned a lap of 128.014 mph in a Ford to knock teammate Greg Biffle from the top starting spot for Sunday’s race. Biffle’s lap of 127.622 mph was good enough for second. It gave a RFR driver the pole for the third consecutive race. Edwards won the pole in Phoenix and Matt Kenseth won the pole at Las Vegas, where Edwards picked up his first win of the season. Regan Smith qualified a careerbest third in a Chevrolet, and his 6.25 qualifying average this season is best in the Sprint Cup Series. Paul Menard was fourth in a Chevy, and David Ragan was fifth to put three Roush drivers in the top five. “This is fun; the cars have just been great,” Edwards said. “Greg motivated me. I didn’t think anybody was going to be able to go that fast. I thought that the track had slowed down a lot more than that, so I was out there driving my heart out.” It was Edwards’ ninth career pole, second of the season and fifth in the last 19 races. For Biffle, it was a nice start to the weekend after his disastrous run at Las Vegas two weeks ago. Although he thought his car was just a tick off from Edwards’ racewinner, a series of problems in the pits led to a 28th-place finish. He’s 32nd in the points — danger-

That’s hard to do when you’ve got a really, really fast car.” Defending race winner Jimmie Johnson qualified sixth and was followed by Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jeff Gordon. Martin Truex Jr. qualified seventh in a Toyota, and Mark Martin and Kasey Kahne rounded out the top 10.

Crews work on cars after practice on Friday for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, set for Sunday at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Matt Kenseth, the fourth Roush driver, qualified 11th. Kurt Busch, a five-time Bristol winner, was the highest qualifying Dodge driver at 20th. Meanwhile, Goodyear was plagued all day Friday with tire issues when the ones at Bristol failed to lay enough rubber on the track surface. Typically, as drivers run more laps, rubber grounds into the surface and alleviates excessive wear. But it didn’t happen after a full day of track activity Friday, even after the sun came out and the track surface got hotter. Drivers

were only able to go about 30 laps before their right-side tires wore down to the cords. So Goodyear called for about 1,300 new tires to be shipped from North Carolina to Bristol in time for the Nationwide Series race today. Nationwide teams will qualify this morning on the tires already at the track, then switch to the new ones in the race during an early competition caution. Goodyear officials said they were like everyone else in “wondering why” the tires were wearing down so quickly.

MARCO ISLAND, Fla. — NFL players and their leadership tried to make a few things perfectly clear Friday: They consider the letter Commissioner Roger Goodell sent them a day earlier an attempt to create “dissension.” They refute the league’s contention that the union walked away from negotiations. They dispute the owners’ depiction of their last-minute offer made last Friday. They say it wasn’t close to acceptable because it would have made salaries a fixed cost and eliminated

the NFL’s version of last week’s proposal and told players: “I hope you will encourage your union to return to the bargaining table and conclude a new collective bargaining agreement.” Players were upset by that line, particularly the reference to “your union” — the NFLPA renounced its status as a union and says it is now a trade association, which permits the court actions

Clark, his team’s main representative, called it “probably the worst deal in sports history,” echoing words used by NFLPA chief executive DeMaurice Smith in a radio appearance. Smith said he does not consider Goodell’s letter — e-mailed to all active players Thursday — an attempt to engage in good-faith negotiations. The league, he said, could attempt to restart talks by writing, instead, to lawyers representing the players now that the union has dissolved. “Let’s not kid ourselves.

PALM HARBOR, Fla. — Sergio Garcia is not thinking about winning, which is becoming tougher to do with each bogey-free round at the Transitions Championship. Garrett Willis and Chris Couch were tied for the lead when another gorgeous day at Innisbrook ended. Willis had a 4-under 67 in the still of the morning to put his name atop the leaderboard for the second straight year — this time on a Friday, not a Thursday. Couch had a 64 in the afternoon as the breeze began to stir, making a par from the trees on the 18th to tie for the lead. Even so, it was tough to ignore the name one stroke behind them. Garcia is among the most talented players in golf, but his enthusiasm waned so much last year that he took a 10-week break. He hadn’t played in America in seven months. Passion no longer seems to be an issue. The 31-year-old Spaniard looked moderately disgusted when birdie putts turned away. He produced a fist pump normally saved for a Sunday when he holed a chip for birdie from behind the 13th green. About the only thing that went wrong in his round of 66 was when he felt something on the back of his cap as he walked off the 14th tee early in his round. Turns out it was a bee that stung him on his middle finger, although he got the

stinger out and all was well. A par save on the final hole felt even better. “Just keep trying to do the right things and see what we finish,” he said. “I’m not worried about winning. I just want to keep building confidence into my head, and these rounds obviously help. If we go out there tomorrow and shoot another round – beautiful. If not, that’s fine. I’ve just got to make sure I keep building up.” Willis and Couch were at 9-under 133, one shot clear of Garcia and Webb Simpson, who had a 67 in the afternoon. Paul Casey, who led after the first round, had to settle for a 71 and was two shots behind along with Justin Rose (65) and Gary Woodland (68). Innisbrook is one of the toughest tracks in Florida, although it was vulnerable in such ideal weather. It’s not so much the number of players who produced low scores, rather the high scores that were absent. As a result, the cut of 1-under 141 was the lowest in tournament history. Going into the weekend, only eight shots separate first from worst, a rarity on the Tour. Willis is making his own kind of progress. A year ago, Willis opened with a 65 to take the first-round lead, then followed that with a 77 and missed the 54-hole cut. He followed his opening 66 with a solid 67 Friday to finish his round atop the leaderboard. “It’s a lot cooler to lead after the second round than it is the first round,” Willis said.

The Week Ahead

Goods that endure

Durable goods orders

Companies hold off on buying expensive equipment when their budgets are hurting. The Commerce Department’s February report on orders for durable goods – products that last at least three years – will show how confident companies are about spending. The reading for January rose because of aircraft orders, which tend to fluctuate. Without transportation, orders had their biggest drop in two years.

Housing is still a dark blot on a brightening economic picture. Two reports will tell how many newly built and previously occupied homes were sold in February. Analysts expect mixed news: They forecast that more families bought new homes in January, but fewer bought existing homes. High rates of unemployment and difficulty getting loans have dampened homeownership.

The Commerce Department makes its final report on fourth-quarter gross domestic product on Friday. In its second report a month ago, the government said spending cuts by state and local governments held back economic growth. It revised its estimate of how much GDP grew during the quarter to an annual rate of 2.8 percent. The first estimate was 3.2 percent. Economists are looking for the government to again revise the number, this time, upward.

RICHMOND, Va. — Removing menthol cigarettes from the market would benefit public health because the minty flavoring has led to an increase in smokers and makes quitting harder, a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel said Friday. The agency’s Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee stopped short of recommending an outright ban. The FDA should consider other factors, the advisers said, including that a ban could increase counterfeit and smuggled cigarettes. Panels like the tobacco committee advise the FDA on scientific issues. The

agency doesn’t have to follow their recommendations but often does. Many analysts believe it won’t ban menthol, which about 19 million Americans smoke. “We just think this is too much of a political hot potato,” said Ira Loss, an analyst with Washington Analysis who has covered the agency for three decades. Lawrence Deyton, director of the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products, signaled a ban is not a sure thing. While there is no timeline for the agency to act, the FDA intends to provide a progress report in about 90 days. “I need to be very clear. ... The report

does not set FDA policy, does not set FDA actions,” Deyton said. “Receipt of the final report will not have direct, immediate effect on the availability of menthol products.” While the panel said menthol smokers are not likely to be at a higher risk of disease or exposed to a greater number of toxins, menthol cigarettes make it more likely for certain groups like youth and African Americans to experiment with smoking and make it harder for them to quit. The panel said more research is needed and said the federal agency should develop a program to monitor marketing of menthol cigarettes. It also sug-

Continental recalls tires Continental Tire says it will recall 390,000 truck tires, most of which are used as original tires on 2008-2009 Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks. Continental says about 330,000 of the tires were used on new Ford trucks while the rest were sold as replacement tires. The company says there was a fatal crash involving the tires in January 2011. The recalled tires are LT275/70R18 125/122S with outline white letters and black sidewall and ContiTrac size LT275/70R18 125/122S with black sidewall produced between May 2007 and September 2008.

INFLATION HURTS The Associated Press

W

ASHINGTON — Inflation spooked the nation in the early 1980s. It surged and kept rising until it topped 13 percent. These days, inflation is much lower. Yet to many Americans, it feels worse now. And for a good reason: Their income has been even flatter than inflation. Back in the ’80’s, the money people made typically more than made up for high inflation. In 1981, banks would pay nearly 16 percent on a six-month CD. And workers typically got pay raises to match their higher living costs. No more. Over the 12 months that ended in February, consumer prices increased just 2.1 percent. Yet wages for many people have risen even less — if they’re not actually frozen.

Social Security recipients have gone two straight years with no increase in benefits. Money market rates? You need a magnifying glass to find them. That’s why even moderate inflation hurts more now. And it’s why if food and gas prices lift inflation even slightly above current rates, consumer spending could weaken and slow the economy. “It feels far more painful now than in the ’80s,” says Judy Bates, who lives

near Birmingham, Ala. “Money in the bank was growing like crazy because interest rates were high. My husband had a union job at a steel company and was getting cost-of-living raises and working overtime galore.” Bates, 58, makes her living writing and speaking about how people can stretch their dollars. Her husband, 61, is retired. They’ve paid off their mortgage and have no car payments. But they’re facing higher prices for food, gas, utilities, insurance and health care, while fetching measly returns on their savings. “You want to weep,” Bates says. Consumer inflation did pick up in February, rising 0.5 percent, because of costlier food and gas. Still, looked at over the past 12 months, price increases have remained low. Problem is, these days any inflation tends to hurt. Not that everyone has been squeezed the same. It depends on personal circumstances. Some families with low expenses or generous pay increases have been little affected.

LOS ANGELES — The Apple iPad 2 has been selling out in stores across the United States since its launch Friday, and the scarcity of the device will probably continue as Japan continues to recover from the earthquake and tsunami that struck the nation March 11 and as it tries to rein in an escalating nuclear crisis. Apple pushed the delivery time for those ordering the iPad 2 online to four to five weeks Thursday, the same day that the research firm IHS iSuppli issued a report that said five key components of the tablet made in Japan will be in short supply because of factory shutdowns. “The aftermath of the Japanese earthquake may cause logistical disruptions and supply shortages in Apple Inc.’s iPad 2, which employs several components manufactured in the disaster-stricken country — including a hard-to-replace electronic compass, the battery and possibly the advanced technology glass in the display,” IHS iSuppli said in a statement. Apple officials were unavailable to comment on the report. IHS iSuppli said it has identified five parts in the iPad 2 supplied by Japanese companies: NAND flash drives from Toshiba; memory manufactured by Elpida; electronic compasses from AKM Semiconductor; glass used in the tablet’s touch screen likely from Asahi Glass Co.; and batteries from Apple factories in Japan. “While some of these suppliers reported that their facilities were undamaged, delivery of components from all of these companies is likely to be impacted at least to some degree by logistical issues now plaguing most Japanese industries in the quake zone,” IHS iSuppli said.

Netflix cuts a deal to add a TV series to its Internet video streaming service The Associated Press

LOS GATOS, Calif. — Netflix Inc.’s Internet video streaming service will be the only place to watch an upcoming TV series with a high-powered pedigree that includes Academy Award-winning actor Kevin Spacey and the director of an Oscar-nominated film about Facebook. The deal announced Friday illustrates Netflix’s growing clout in Hollywood as it mines revenue from its 20 million sub-

scribers to create new home entertainment options. In this instance, Netflix will be showing a series that won’t have a scheduled broadcast time. Episodes could be released in bunches instead of just one per week. “It’s a show people will be able to discover over time,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, said in a Friday interview. “It doesn’t have to happen over the first week, first month or even the first year of the show.”

Netflix didn’t disclose how much it is paying Media Rights Capital, the studio behind “House of Cards.” The agreement covers 26 hour-long episodes, an usually large commitment for a series that hasn’t even entered production. The series will debut on Netflix late next year. The high-profile names connected to “House of Cards” made it a hot commodity. Besides featuring Spacey in his first regular role in a TV series,

the pilot will be directed by David Fincher, a respected filmmaker nominated for a best-director Oscar for “The Social Network,” a movie based on the legal battle pitting Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg against his former friends and classmates at Harvard University. “House of Cards” is based on a novel about British politics during the 20-year regime of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

This will mark the first time that Netflix owns the exclusive rights to an episodic series, an advantage that has worked well for pay-TV channels such as Time Warner Inc.’s HBO and CBS Inc.’s Showtime. HBO, which has approximately 28 million U.S. subscribers, has steadfastly refused to license critically acclaimed series such as “The Sopranos” and “The Wire” to Netflix’s streaming service because of their intensifying rivalry.

The result will be showers and mountain snow from California to the Northwest and into the northern Rockies. There will be a few scattered showers and thunderstorms over the nation’s midsection as well.

You can tell by stepping outside this morning that winter has made a comeback with colder temperatures. Under cloudy skies this morning, there will be scattered flurries with a bite in the wind, but very dry air aloft will soon mix in to allow for clearing and some sunshine this afternoon. Just keep in mind that today's high will be 25 degrees colder than it was on Friday. Under clear skies tonight check out the 'Super Moon'. It's full at the same time the moon is closest to the earth. This happens only once every 18 years. It's actually a tiny bit bigger and a little brighter than normal. Enjoy the view. - Tom Clark

tmospheric decor is characterized by soft textures, transparency, iridescence, opacity — or even all of those at once. It can create a mood of quietude and retreat. And it is, some designers say, popular now as an antidote to an increasingly jarring and sped-up world.

“We’re seeking balance and understanding, and we want to unclutter our minds,” says design consultant Laura Guido-Clark of Berkeley, Calif. Despite atmospheric decor’s quiet, it has “an inherent energy,” she says. Many of these elements were on the runways of Monique Lhuillier and Chanel this spring, and in furnishings, they offer a counterpoint to the season’s alter ego, an

exuberant jumble trunk of hot hues and wild colors. The colors in atmospherics tend to be lightweight and sheer — as Guido-Clark notes, “veiled like mist or air.” Yet there can be elements of strength and purity. We see a lot of dreamy hues — soft whites, blush, silver — but also hefty colors — graphite, charcoal. See SERENITY, Page 3C

Setting a slower pace for domestic life By MARY BETH BRECKENRIDGE Akron Beacon Journal

A slow home, on the other hand, is reasonably sized and carefully designed. It might have an entry where family members can easily take off their boots, stash their keys and store their backpacks. It might have a living space that encourages people to talk or read, not just watch TV or surf the ’net. It’s energy-efficient, filled with natural light and designed for easy flow among rooms and outside access. It doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive, he said, just easy to live in. He and his partners design those kinds ofhousesthroughtheirfirm,Housebrand, and they encourage others to do the same through the Slow Home Studio (http:// www.slowhomestudio.com). Brown and partner Matthew North also have written abookonthesubject,“What’sWrongWith This House? Fast Houses, Slow Homes and How to Tell the Difference.”

John Brown believes a home should ease stress, not add to it. Brown founded the slow-home movement, a philosophy that emphasizes livabilityandsustainability.It’saboutbuilding a home that works for the occupants, not one meant to impress. The concept was inspired by the slowfood movement, with its focus on healthful,sustainablewaysofproducingandpreparing food, explained Brown, an architect, real-estate broker and architecture professor in Calgary, Canada. “You can think of the typical cookie-cutter house as being like fast food” — often supersized and designed to satisfy our craving for beauty, he said. It’s a house that’sdesignedtoseduceusintobuyingby feeding our fantasies of a more glamorous life, he said, not one that’s necessarily easy to live in or easy on the environment. See SLOWER, Page 5C

The amount of natural light, the ability to maintain natural flow, access to the outside and energy-efficiency are crucial factors in a slow home.

ll this talk of a potential government shutdown didn’t really hit home until a friend put our merry little band of travelers on notice that it could keep her away from an upcoming happy-birthday-everyone trip we’ve planned for months. After all, a shutdown isn’t really what it sounds like, particularly if you’re one of the “lucky” “essential” employees of the federal government, in which case not only do you have to come to work, you have to come without pay. (Boo hiss.) Now I don’t mean to make light of serious business as I say my biggest concern as I read the news on this matter was whether we really could end up with an empty seat on our oceanfront balcony or too much leftover frozen concoction in our blenders. We had some hope, in that our friend apparently straddles a gray area between essential and non-essential. It’s possible, she said, she could sneak out of Dodge as the latter. You’re not essential; you’re free to go, as it were. Not so good for an ego maybe, but great for vacation plans. Anyway, at such a time as this, good old government hopes, Americans are watching and learning, cleaning their own houses, so to speak. I made an effort anyway and indeed decided to re-examine my own life, at least from the perspective of what is essential vs. non-essential. Of course, I started inside the house. (OK, so I get like this with pretty much every approach of spring.) When you can see the grass again, you also can see all the flaws anew, and you tend to get restless and agitated. My still-new concrete driveway, for one example, is showing its first signs of “spalling,” which is a bad, bad word associated with rock salt, which I never used and never intend to, so how did THAT happen? Strike one for a springy mood. Time to depart this vale of tears, hide inside and pretend I saw none of this, I decided. But ha, said the universe. Watch what I can do: i.e., make all your indoor technology fail at once. Have I offended you, universe? I didn’t wait for an answer but instead hastily summoned all the lazy reprobates to a mandatory meeting in the “Capitol,” i.e., house, of which I am president and CEO. In attendance were the cell phone, the land phone, the laptop, the desktop and even the microwave. Listen up, my impassioned speech began, you “people” are essential employees of this household, and I expect you to show up for work. Now is NOT the time to go lethargic rogue. Would you like to see my tax bill? In response, the cell phone powered down unaided for the 40th time in a week, the desktop computer groaned and fizzled, and the right row of microwave touch keys decided to join the left in early retirement. Now I can only cook in increments of time that contain 2s, 5s and 8s. Does anyone else get this much respect? A careful household manager probably would have waited things out, or at least tried to live without, in a very Thoreau sort of way. Computers and mobile phones, after all? Not essential. Right? I apparently am not careful. More like exasperated and defeated, so I threw in the towel early and conceded to the quitters. You’re all replaceable, I barked, and replace I did, starting with two of the priciest “employees” at once: the cell and the computer. “Geez, good day at the track?” my brother asked. As if. Unless he meant my recent $100 bonus win at a Night at the Races. More like one bad day of caution-tothe-wind abandon, I said. But I prefer rationalization. You can just say I averted a total domestic shutdown.

For many of us, decorating can be daunting. Stephen Saint-Onge seeks to take the scariness out of the process in his new book, “No Place Like Home: Tips & Techniques for Real Family-Friendly Home Design.” Saint-Onge is familiar to many through his television appearances and his House Calls With Stephen Saint-Onge column in Better Homes and Gardens magazine. In his book, he inspires his readers with rooms that are warm, approachable and functional and helps them achieve similar results by giving them processes to follow and room makeovers to emulate. The book is heavy on the how-to. Saint-Onge provides guidance on everything from weekend makeovers to major renovations, pointing out specific elements in each room that readers might incorporate in their own homes. He sprinkles the book with tips and ideas and helps readers get started on projects by posing questions to help them define their needs and wants. “No Place Like Home” is due out next week from Wiley Publishing and will sell for $19.99 in softcover. •••

Q&A Q: Where can you buy individual sheets? I have three top sheets but no contour sheets to go with them. All I ever see anymore are sheet sets. A: Flat or fitted sheets packaged individually are less common than they used to be. Target, Bed Bath & Beyond and larger Macy’s stores sell some sheets individually, and you might be able to find a limited selection at off-price retailers such as T.J. Maxx, HomeGoods, Marshalls and Gabriel Bros. Mail-order sources are another option. The Company Store, L.L. Bean and Lands’ End all sell individual sheets. I also found them at a number of online retailers, including Amazon.com, HardToFindSheets.com, Boscovs.com, Shopbedding.com and CSNStores.com. •••

What’s new

A Hudson company is using engineered plastic to make Adirondack chairs that are virtually maintenance-free. The Rocky River Rondack Co. says its chairs are designed for both durability and comfort. The plastic mimics the look of natural wood but never needs to be sanded, stained, painted or sealed. The chairs can stay outdoors yearround, although they fold to make them easy to store. They recline in three positions and have a curved back for comfort. The chairs come in white or toffee and sell for $369 plus shipping on the company’s website, http:// www.rondackchairs.com.

ALAN J. HEAVENS task, I prefer sizing the walls. The sizing can be easily washed from the surface for painting. Painting contractor David Magargee, of the venerable Magargee Bros. in Germantown also applies a coat of clear sizing to the walls before paper. First thing in the morning, the workers put down protection for the flooring. Then, using a hand pump, they squirt water all over the walls — yes, just water, no particular temperature. “Then they wait, and after awhile someone gets up and tests the wall, and if the paper doesn’t come off easily, they spray it again and wait until it does,” Magargee said. They are so good at this that the paper, glue, and sizing all come off, and they don’t have to wash the walls, he said. Removing wallpaper from plaster walls is never a problem, he said. When the paper has layers of paint on top of it, it is scored with a broad knife to let the water seep underneath for easy removal. If you want to paint over it, and because there is no interior oilbased paint anymore, use an acrylic paint. Zinsser has products that seal the paper before you paint — one of those is called Shieldz universal wall-covering primer. Make sure you spackle the seams before you paint, he said. Otherwise, they can open up and ruin a paint job easily. For customers with really bad walls, Magargee uses something like an artist’s canvas as a substratum for painting. The canvas is applied to the wall to hide most if not all of the imperfections before his crew begins to paint. The canvas comes in12-,16-, and 20-ounce weights, although he said the 20-ounce material “is getting harder to find.” Questions? E-mail Alan J.

Q: Our bedroom was rebuilt by the previous homeowner after a fire with what I’m guessing is an old style of wallboard; wallpaper was then put directly over that wallboard. I’ve been trying to remove the wallpaper, but it is completely an uphill battle. Where the seams were spackled, the wallpaper comes off easily when dampened with water. But on most of the rest of the space, the paper might as well be glued to the thin layers of cardboard-like wallboard. Once the paper is saturated and scraping is attempted, trying to get it off often tears or gouges the surface of the wallboard. Dry scraping works only on the spackled areas. I’ve used a commercial product to help get the paper off more easily, but it doesn’t make a difference in this case. The process is so tedious and the results so poor that I can only stand to do a little at a time before I get frustrated and disgusted. The reason for doing it myself rather than trying to hire someone is to save money, so I don’t want to call someone in. I also don’t want to drywall the entire room, which is 19 by 19 feet, but I’m not getting a paintable surface. Will the whole room require a thin layer of joint compound to be lightly sanded to smooth out all of the rips and gouges on the paper surface before I can prime and paint the room? A: I have been in your situation several times, and I agree that removing wallpaper from a surface that wasn’t sized is a job and a half. Wallpaper sizing is a liquid coating applied to a surface — in effect, you are priming the wall with it. Sizing a wall before papering not only helps the paper better adhere to the surface, it facilitates easier removal with fewer nicks and gouges. Although many paint manufacturers contend that the latest generation of primers for new drywall accomplishes the same

Textures include voile, moire silk, slubbed wool, crystal, hammered metals, blown glass, ceramic, even translucent concrete. Mud Australia, a top ceramics studio, creates beautifully curvy vessels and plates in soft, chalky hues with names like “ocean,” “milk,” “powder,” “dust.” Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka creates conceptual furniture out of interesting materials. He’s designed a line of thick, clear polycarbonate furniture for Kartell called The Invisibles. And Paper Cloud, created for Moroso, is a white, fluffy sectional sofa. Describing his interest in light and wind, Yoshioka says, “I’m fascinated by elements that stir and stimulate the imagination.” Italian designer Diego Grandi, who along with Manola Bossi created the voluptuously elegant gold-glazed Oppiacei Table, says, “I call myself a ‘slow addict.’ I listen to silence with pleasure.” Trove’s dreamlike wallpapers include Ciel, with a cloud motif; an oceanic Sargasso; and Nekkar and Askella, both with a cascade of feathery petals. At Design Within Reach, find One & Co.’s 47 Table, a chunk of timber given a shimmery coat of silver.

Z Gallerie has a spherical lamp made of hundreds of oyster-shell tiles; its iridescence is both organic and jewel-like. Find here also the Cloud vase, a milky swirl of cirrus glass. Roubini Rugs has Tony Duquette’s Malachite rug, an eddy of emerald and ink like a sliver of the mineral itself. And Campion Platt’s Mariner rug collection, inspired by travels through the Turks & Caicos, uses the soothing natural patterns of waves and the landscape. Art Addiction offers several large format prints that would create instant atmosphere, and provide a launch point for other furnishings. A series of dandelions, about to catch the wind. A collection of X-rayed sea urchins and shells, elemental and artistic. And a dramatic group of horse images in which the animals have been photographed, all sinewy muscles and whipping manes, on a blustery, misty day. There’s something of the dream world about them.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, four out of five fire-related deaths among civilians occur in the home. It makes sense to be prepared. Smoke alarms can alert you to a fire, and sprinklers can extinguish a blaze. Beyond that, fire extinguishers are a must, but even that might not be sufficient. If it’s small enough and you think you can put it out, “always make sure everyone is out of the house and at a safe distance,” says Heather Paul of State Farm Insurance. Most home fires occur in the kitchen; unattended cooking is the leading cause. For any kitchen fire, the first thing to do is turn off the heat. For a grease fire or any pan fire on the stove, place a metal lid or plate over the fire to cut off the oxygen supply. (And keep the lid on; lifting it resupplies oxygen and contents will burst back into flame). A fire extinguisher can handle a grease fire (don’t use water; that only makes the fire spread). If the fire is contained to the pot, bank the spray from the extinguisher off the back of the stove or the bottom of the microwave if it’s above the stove. If the oil or grease has already spilled and the top of the oven is on fire, sweep the spray of the extinguisher at the base of the fire. For a toaster fire, unplug the toaster and use an extinguisher. If a fire is in the oven or microwave, leave the door closed until the fire burns out. Fire extinguishers are not created equal. Some are rated for fires involving paper, trash and cloth; some for fires involving flammable liquids; still others for electric fires. Some are multipurpose, the best choice for homes. Not sure what to buy? Go to your local fire department or the NFPA website (nfpa.org). Have an extinguisher on each floor of the home, but at least have one in the kitchen. Familiarize yourself and your family with how the extinguisher works. (In general: Pull the pin, aim at the base of the fire, squeeze the trigger evenly, spray in a back-and-forth motion.) Check it annually to be sure it’s filled and working properly. The best place to have it looked over is at a fire station, Paul says.

Architect Hallie Bowie has long been guided by a similar philosophy in designing additions and renovations through her New Leaf Home Design in Ohio. But before learning of the slow-home movement recently, she never had a name for it, she said. Modern ideas merge Bowie sees the movement as a marriage between green building and the Not So Big House idea, championed by architect Sarah Susanka in her design books. At its heart, a slow home is really about good design, she said. “It seems to me the slow home has a real values kind of focus,” Bowie said. Its design grows from the occupants’ emphasis on the quality of time they spend with family and friends, not on the quantity of their possessions or their desire to impress people, she said. A slow home takes different forms for different people. A family who wants less emphasis on television might create a viewing area separate from the great room, Bowie said. A family who wants to interact more with neighbors might have a front porch. Brown said slow homes eliminate the little annoyances that tend to make our already harried lives more stressful — such as entries without closets, bathrooms that opendirectlytolivingareasorlaundry rooms so close to the back door that people are constantly tripping over laundry baskets when they enter. He likens those kinds of poorly designed elements to an ill-fitting pair of shoes. They just make it harder to get through the day. Author Shannon Honeybloom also sees a slow home as a nurturer. To her, the slow-home movement involves determining how you want to live or raise children and then creating an environment that supports those goals, a concept she outlines in her book “Making a Family Home.” She advocates creating a way of lifeandahomethatputlessemphasis on instant information and entertainment and more on encouraging interaction, imagination and learning. Elemental concepts Honeybloom’s concept of a slow homemightincludesuchelements as a comfortable reading chair, a backyard garden where the whole family can putter, a computer somewhere other than where the children usually play and a stepstool in the bathroom that enables little ones to wash their own hands or brush their own teeth. Most average homes designed before 1950 are slow by design, Brown said. They’re often simple, “but they work,” he said. But like the food industry, he said, the housing industry started turning out houses — or “products,” as he calls them — designed

DEFINING FEATURES OF THE SLOW HOME

Remodeling

Slow Home Studio’s 10 attributes of a slow home: 1. Location. A slow home is in a walkable neighborhood that minimizes use of a car. 2. Orientation. A home is correctly oriented to the sun and properly related to its surroundings. 3. Organization. A home is modestly sized, with a good flow between spaces and a strong connection to the outdoors. 4. Entry. The front and back entries are spaces, not just doors. 5. Living. Indoor and outdoor living spaces have good daylight and are easy to furnish. 6. Kitchen. The kitchen is compact, with an efficient layout, good work surfaces and good storage. 7. Dining. A home has a well-defined dining area that properly fits a table and suits daily use. 8. Bedrooms. All bedrooms have good daylight and sufficient storages and can logically fit a bed. 9. Bathrooms. A home has an appropriate number of well-organized, modestly sized bathrooms. 10. Services. Service spaces are unobtrusive and highly functional.

for short-term sale rather than long-term livability. Dazzling features and square footage sold houses, not abundant natural light, access to the outdoors or a location in a walkable neighborhood. Ideally, Brown said, a slow home would be designed that way from the start by an architect who takes into consideration the occupants’ interests, needs and habits. Still, he said you can slow an existing home. Something as simple asrearrangingfurniturecanmakea better fit. The slow-home movement isn’t “a touchy-feely new-age thing,” Brown said, but a way of helping homes better serve their occupants.

Abandoned child can’t share in family’s nostalgia for late mother Dear Abby: My mom died of an aneurysm 23 years ago. I was only 7. I occasionally hear an aunt or uncle talk about how much they loved her and miss her. I moved in with an aunt when I was 5, due to abuse from my father. Two years later, my mom was gone. As kids, my brother and I never received counseling. We bounced from home to home and finally ended up in a stable environment with our grandma. I usually feel guilty when people talk about my mom because I cannot relate. I tell myself that maybe God sacrificed her so I could have a good life. Sometimes, I feel more anger than love toward her because of the

DEAR ABBY

only of yourself, but also the dynamics in your family. You do not deserve to be carrying around any guilt at all.

ADVICE

Dear Abby: When people have a serious illness, their friends and family usually send “Get Well” messages and flowers to the hospital. Unfortunately, it isn’t the custom to send supportive greetings and gifts to those who are dealing with psychiatric illnesses. These people deserve all of the attention and good wishes that other patients receive. Please let it be known that psychiatric illnesses are treatable and recovery is possible. Support in all forms is essential in all patients’ progress toward recovering from serious illness of any kind. — Kathy in Universal City, Texas

abuse and abandonment. What am I supposed to feel about her? Can someone love a person they never knew? — Emotionless in Oklahoma City Dear Emotionless: It is very difficult to love someone you never knew. And from your description of your childhood, your feelings are understandable. However, because those feelings are bothering you and creating guilt, they should be discussed with a licensed professional. If you do, you will gain a better understanding not

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

CRYPTOQUOTE

Dear Kathy: You make a good point. The reason some people may be hesitant to acknowledge someone’s mental illness may be the stigma that’s still attached to these kinds of problems. But you’re absolutely right. When people are ill, they need to know they’re cared about — and a card with warm good wishes is a step in the right direction. Dear Abby: I’m 14 and have a big problem. My teacher, “Mrs. Smith,” adores me. She is always calling on me and telling the class about all the things I’m doing correctly. After she does it, the other kids glare at me and call me “Teacher’s Pet.” It makes me uncomfortable, but I can’t help it if Mrs. Smith likes

me. What should I do? — Don’t Want to Be Teacher’s Pet Dear Don’t: When a student excels at athletics, music or drama, it usually makes the boy or girl a celebrity on campus. Sadly, the same is often not true when a student excels at academics, and it’s a shame. Because being used as an example is making you a target, ask your teacher to tone it down. And if it doesn’t happen, have your mother speak to the teacher and/or the principal, if necessary. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Status is not the same thing as power, and today will illustrate this difference. You care more about what you can actually do than what people think about you while you’re doing it, which shows that you value power over status. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don’t like having to rely on others to meet your needs, but that is the way it is, and there’s no getting around it today. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Someone has repeatedly disappointed you. Normally, you would take this as a sign to move on, but things are different this time. You realize that if this person does what he says he will even once, you will benefit greatly. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Not only do you appreciate an environment that is neat and orderly; today, you require it to feel that all is right with the world. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Usually, you would prefer to be unencumbered by material things. However, today you’ll have an idea of how important it is to save the items that help you to recall happy days and the people you have loved. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Some people wrongly believe that two powerful people cannot easily exist in one relationship. You’ll prove this theory untrue, as you and a partner each apply your ambition to a mutual aim. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In some ways, you are fundamentally different from those you were brought up around, but today you’ll mostly see the ways in which you are alike. You’ll appre-

ciate the special circumstances that helped create you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are uniquely equipped to understand raw concepts and bring your visionary powers to what is unfinished. You will turn theory into practice and make music, either literally or figuratively. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). An event this afternoon could cause you to ponder things you usually don’t give much thought to, such as your position in society. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will be entrusted with a responsibility, and you’ll be in a position to choose the right associations and arrangements to handle the situation. Evaluate each deal, and determine its appropriateness for you and yours. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You and your loved ones don’t always agree on the little things. But when it comes down to doing what’s necessary, you unify, and the strength of your group will help you to prevail. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Someone close may be acting unconsciously to limit you. Call out the behavior. If you don’t, the pattern of subtle restriction will continue. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 19). Relationships and love will bring satisfaction and deep emotional fulfillment. There’s fantastic news for your family in June. Because of your keen handling of money, you’ll make a beautiful event happen in July. You share a special connection with Sagittarius and Libra people. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 25, 33, 5 and 19.

MINI COOPER FROM PAGE 1

,so the Countryman doesn’t look like a car that has only had a nose job. I liked how the extra weight of the longer car and the longer wheelbase made the Countryman feel stable. The car didn’t bob up and down on highway expansion cracks the way a shorter-wheelbase Mini Cooper hatchback did. And the heavier weight — 600-plus pounds more than a three-door Mini Cooper hatchback — was apparent as my passengers and I felt some body roll as the Countryman traveled on twisty roads. This isn’t so noticeable on the smaller Mini Coopers. Still, the Countryman, with all-wheel drive, tracked right along with confidence. The tester had the standard suspension, which felt more compliant than that of many Mini Cooper hatchback models and provided a surprisingly comfortable ride. But it wasn’t quiet. I heard road noise from the run-flat, 18-inch tires and had to turn up the radio. The Countryman has the same two 1.6-liter engines that are in other Minis. The base engine is naturally aspirated and produces 114 foot-pounds of torque at 4,250 rpm. The tester had the turbo version with a more adequate peak torque of 177 foot-pounds starting at a low 1,600 rpm. Moving through the gears via the rather ratchety-feeling manual, I got the Countryman moving easily into traffic and out on the highway. There was a bit of turbo lag, but the turbo is a good match for this 3,200-plus model. Fuel economy for the test car was rated at 25 mpg in city driving and 31 mpg on the highway. I managed 28 miles a gallon in combined city and highway driving. The tester was front-drive all the time, except when sensors detected wheel slip. Then, all-wheel drive engaged automatically. It can send as much as half the engine torque to the rear wheels. 135

The interior is like that of other Minis, with a large speedometer in the middle of the dashboard, not in front of the driver, and toggle switches serving as window controls. The center rail’s storage spot, which was clipped in place, was flimsy. The back seat offers 33.8 inches of legroom which is up from 29.9 inches in the Mini Cooper hatchback. Shoulder room is 52 inches, up from 44.7 inches. Cargo space of 41.3 cubic feet maximum compares with more than 70 cubic feet in the RAV4 and other SUVs. There’s a nice liftgate at the rear, not two small doors as on the Clubman. The Countryman comes with many standard safety features, including electronic stability control, traction control and seven air bags.
