New Eighth Street Bridge set to handle its first traffic, with predecessor to be closed.

WYOMING -- By this evening, the new Eighth Street Bridge spanning the Susquehanna River between Wyoming and Jenkins Township should open to traffic. At the same time, just 12 feet upstream, the 111-year-old bridge it is replacing will support its final vehicle. “We know how anxious area motorists are to see the new Eighth Street Bridge open and we are happy that the day has come. We are pleased with the rate at which this project was delivered and certainly proud of the work,” said Pennsylvania Department of Transportation District 4 spokeswoman Karen Dussinger. The $23 million project got under way in 2008 with work being done by Nyleve Bridge Corp. of Emmaus. Construction of the concrete Ibeam span is complete with just some last-minute touches being done today, including line painting, inspection, the activation of signals and other work. The new bridge will have two 12-foot traveling lanes and two 10-foot shoulders as well as a 6-foot sidewalk on the downstream side. Part of the project included improvements made to the intersec-

Entitlement news irks area seniors

Expenses vs. benefits concerns aired By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

KINGSTON – The news turned a quiet Monday morning at the Kingston Senior Center into a table-to-table discussion. The buzz was created by reports that the government is projecting a slight cost-of-living adjustment in Social Security benefits next year – the first increase since 2009 – but for most senior citizens, rising Medicare premiums are likely to exceed any increase in payments. According to The Associated Press, about 45 million people —1in 7 in the coun-

Palmentera and others said their income stays the same, but their expenses keep growing. They said food, gas and taxes continue to rise, but they are expected to pay their bills on their fixed income that hasn’t increased for three years. “Everything goes up, but we don’t get a raise,” Palmentera said. “It’s not fair. Take some off of those that can afford it. I think this is terrible.” Betty Lee Frusciante, 76, of Swoyersville, has had seven surgeries during the last seven years. She pays $100 per month for Medicare and another $165 per month for Blue Cross/Blue Shield.

try — receive Medicare and Social Security. By law, beneficiaries have their Medicare Part B premiums, which cover doctor visits, deducted from their Social Security payments each month. When Medicare premiums rise more than Social Security payments – as expected this year – millions living on fixed incomes don’t get raises, the AP said. “Why are they always picking on the senior citizens?” asked Anne Palmentera, 88, of Swoyersville. “We worked for what we are getting. What are the seniors supposed to live on?” See SENIORS , Page 12A

WILKES-BARRE – For attorney Dick Hughes, experience is one important factor in the judicial race for one of six open seats on the Court of Common Pleas. He said voters must also consider the possibility that all 16 candidates could end up serving their elected 10-year term, and another 10 years if voters say yes to their retention. “I’m urging people to treat this as getting the most qualified people on the bench,” Hughes told The Times Leader’s endorsement board.

WSCTC Area fire departments battle several fires reviews new goal for pupils Times Leader staff

Philosophy will aim to prepare students to compete in the global economy. By EILEEN GODIN Times Leader Correspondent

PRINGLE -- West Side Career and Technical Center officials Monday night discussed a change in the school’s philosophy. Nancy Tkatch, soon-to-be administrative director, informed the joint operating committee that a new school phiW H AT ’ S losophy will NEXT raise the exThe next commitpectations tee meeting is of students scheduled for 6 prep.m. April 25 in the while paring them school’s library. to compete in a global economy. Tkatch, the current Northwest Area superintendent, will be replacing Besty Ellis as administrative director as of July 1. While a pamphlet from the National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Consortium was passed out, she added that teachers are already working to integrate the new philosophy into their curriculum. The former goal of vocational education was to train students with job specific skills. The new goal will prepare students for careers such as health care, biomedical, and renewable energy through core technical standards that have been developed by leaders in the industries. In other business, the committee approved allowing culinary arts teacher Heidi Miller to attend the Pennsylvania Nutrition Education Network annual conference, April 26 and 27, at a cost of $300. A request by teacher Nicole Kmetz to take 12 students attend the annual FBLA Leadership conference/Competition, April 3-6, at the Hershey Lodge at a cost of $6,647 was approved 11-3. The cost of the trip will be “offset through fundraising” the request stated. Committee members Russell Bigus and Gary Mathers, Dallas School District representatives, and Gerald Conger, Northwest Area representative, voted against the motion. Conger stated his vote against the motion was due to insufficient information on the percentage of funds raised through fundraising. Rick Solomon was appointed as a volunteer baseball coach for the 2011 season, and Roy VanWhy was added to the professional staff substitute list, both pending clearances. A motion passed to change Jim Gaydos’s title from DPS programmer and analyst to network administrator and technology director at a salary of $40,000, retroactive to Nov. 1, 2010 and that the compensation for the 20112013 per his current employee contract. Member Karen Kyle, Dallas School District representative, abstained from voting on a motion for teacher Gary Richards to use the auto body shop for a Paint Certification Program today. Kyle stated her reason was lack of information provided.

Daycare evacuated Lehman Fire Chief Bill Hagenbagh said the Precious Angels Learning Center on state Route 118 was evacuated when smoke filled the building just before noon. Five staff members and 17 children evacuated safely to a nearby hair salon. “They performed their evacuation procedures,” Hagenbaugh said. “Fortunately, no one was harmed.” Hagenbaugh said a fan in the HVAC system overheated. Parents picked up their children from the hair salon, Hagenbaugh said.

Lutheran college attracts Jewish students Approximately 34 percent of Muhlenberg College’s students are Jewish. By KATHY MATHESON Associated Press

ALLENTOWN — One of the hottest college campuses in the U.S. for Jewish students is also one of the unlikeliest: a small Lutheran school erected around a soaring stone chapel with a cross on top. In what is being called a testament to word of mouth in the Jewish community, approximately 34 percent of Muhlenberg College’s 2,200 students are Jewish. And the biggest gains have come in the past five years or so. Perhaps equally noteworthy is how Muhlenberg has responded: offering a kosher menu at the student union, creating a partnership with the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York, and expanding its Hillel House, a social hub for Jews. "What makes us stand out is that we actually enjoy our diversity," said Randy Helm, the college’s president, an Episcopalian. "Our close-knit community has embraced differences rather than pulling into its shell or fracturing along religious, ethnic or other lines." Many major universities — including some of the country’s most highly selective schools — have large proportions of Jewish students, far bigger than the 2 percent of the U.S. population that is Jewish. But how, one might ask, did this come to pass at Muhlenberg, a liberal arts school little known outside Pennsylvania? Muhlenberg graduate Ben David, now a rabbi on New York’s Long Island, said it is a question worthy of Malcolm Gladwell’s

best-selling book "The Tipping Point," which analyzes how trends develop. "Jews are like nothing else in terms of word of mouth," said Patti Mittleman, director of Muhlenberg’s Hillel House. "There are so many Jews at Muhlenberg who are having a positive experience at Muhlenberg. That gets talked about in the synagogue and in youth group and in summer camp and in all of those ways that Jews meet each other and talk to each other." Muhlenberg’s Jewish students range from the secular to the Orthodox, and most come from the Northeast Corridor. Allentown is an hour from both Philadelphia and New York. Founded as a seminary in 1848, Muhlenberg (pronounced MYOOL-in-burg) was renamed nearly 20 years later for Henry Melchior Muhlenberg, a founder of the U.S. Lutheran church. The college is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, though it says it receives only minimal financial support from the denomination. The campus chapel is used to this day for both worship and an-

nual student convocations. But there are no required religion classes, and there is no mandatory church attendance. Muhlenberg’s Lutheran roots are not relevant in an era when universities’ religious ties are generally looser than they once were, said Jeff Rubin, a spokesman for the national Hillel organization for Jewish students. He noted strong campus Hillels at Roman Catholic schools like Boston College and Georgetown. And Emory University in Atlanta, which was founded by the Methodist Episcopal Church, is about 30 percent Jewish. "Any university that goes out of its way to create a Jewish community on its campus is going to enjoy an influx of Jewish students," Rubin said. While many Lutheran colleges have diverse campuses, Muhlenberg is unique in the size of its Jewish enrollment, said Bill Hamm, president of the Lutheran Educational Conference of North America, which represents 40 such institutions in the U.S. and Canada. Hamm was at a loss for an ex-

planation. But he said that perhaps the lesson to be learned from Muhlenberg is how "to be a welcoming community for others." David, the rabbi, said Muhlenberg’s welcoming attitude led him to attend the school in the mid-1990s. He half-joked that his choice may have unwittingly given the college the "official stamp of Judaic approval" in the region since his father is also a rabbi in the large Philadelphia suburb of Cherry Hill, N.J. "If a rabbi is willing to send his son to this place, then the Jewish experience there must be pretty strong," said David, 34. Still, many people give one main reason for Muhlenberg’s popularity: the sociable Mittleman, who has been at the college for 22 years. In "Tipping Point" terminology, she is the "connector," linking people of all faiths and backgrounds. A new dining hall at the $47,000-a-year college opened last fall with two kosher food stations, allowing observant Jews to eat with their friends in a common food court instead of in a separate cafeteria. In January, Muhlenberg announced a semester study program at the Jewish Theological Seminary. The school is also considering a major in Jewish studies, currently offered as a minor. And last month, hundreds attended the opening of an expanded Hillel that now can seat more than 300 for Shabbat dinners and bagel brunches, which students say are popular with Jews and non-Jews alike. Samantha Blum, a 22-year-old senior, grew up in a Conservative Jewish home in Villanova, Pa., hearing only Hebrew at her synagogue’s services. Now she enjoys the English services at Hillel, which also include music.

Hundreds of Pa. students rally at Capitol against planned cuts More than 30 Lock Haven University students run to Harrisburg in relay. The Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Hundreds of chanting, sign-waving students rallied Monday in Harrisburg to protest proposed cuts in higher education — and some of them

About three dozen Lock Haven University athletes said they ran in shifts for 13 hours or so beginning Sunday night from their central Pennsylvania campus, each running between 10 and 17 miles in sub-freezing temperatures, to reach the rally. They reached Harrisburg on Monday morning for the raucous rally on the steps of the Capitol, where educators

at a legislative hearing inside pleaded for additional funding. Republican Gov. Tom Corbett has proposed slashing spending by 50 percent for the 14 stateowned universities in the State System of Higher Education, as well as Pitt, Temple, Penn State

and Lincoln. State system officials have said that would result in steep increases in tuition or the loss of many jobs. The proposal, the largest cut proposed by any governor this year, has prompted many protests and rallies across the state. The students chanted, blew horns and banged on drums and tambourines and waved signs reading “Fine, I’ll Just Be A Strip-

per,” “Save Our System,” and “Raise Corporate Taxes, Not Class Sizes.” “I make $9 an hour and I’m getting stepped on by the people who represent me,” freshman Nicholas Imbesi of Kutztown University in Berks County said. Corbett said Monday he disliked cutting education, but spending cuts across state government were required.

LOCAL Barletta against temporary bills Freshman congressman won’t support another short-term measure to keep gov’t running.

By JONATHAN RISKIND Times Leader Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON – Three times won’t be the charm – at least for yet another temporary spending measure to keep the federal government operating, says U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta. The freshman Republican, a former Hazleton mayor, announced Monday in a release that he will only back legislation that sets spending levels for the remaining months of the 2011 fiscal year that ends Sept. 30. Barletta thus far has supported the House-approved GOP bill setting spending levels through Sept. 30 that cut $61

billion during that period, a bill that passed along party lines. Barletta also has voted in favor of both temporary spending bills that have passed the House and Senate and Barletta been signed by President Obama, cutting a total of $10 billion over five weeks. But the second temporary measure expires April 8, and Barletta said he’s not supporting anything now but a final spending bill for 2011. A number of lawmakers, on both sides of the aisle, have indicated they are losing patience with passing temporary spending measures. Barletta has acknowledged he didn’t like all the cuts in the original House GOP bill.

Shickshinny hails new designation

PERSONNEL CHANGE U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, has a new communications director. Shawn M. Kelly, 37, will work out of Barletta’s district office in Hazleton, but said he will travel to Washington as needed. Kelly was Barletta’s election campaign communications director. He also has worked in public relations and marketing at a Hazleton agency and for a Hazleton newspaper. Megan Sweeney, who has served as Barletta’s spokeswoman during his first few months in office, remains in his Washington office and will assume a new role.

He tried, for instance, to restore money cut from a low-income heating assistance program and from the community development block grant program. But, he said Monday that, “the people of Northeastern Pennsylvania sent me to

Washington to stop the out-of-control government spending and rein in the growth of the federal government, and that’s exactly what I’m doing.” “While that’s a great first step, my constituents demand and deserve a financially responsible long-term resolution that takes us through the end of the fiscal year. “ Rep. Tom Marino, R-Lycoming Township, "would prefer not to have another" temporary spending measure, but also wants to avoid a government shutdown, said his spokeswoman, Renita Fennick. "Ideally, he would like to pass a resolution that funds the government through the end of the fiscal year but only with deep spending cuts," Fennick said. However, Marino "does not want a government shutdown and would consider another (temporary measure) with big spending cuts as a last resort."

Borough named a Susquehanna Greenways River Town. By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

SHICKSHINNY – It may seem a bit self-evident and hardly requiring a sign, but Shickshinny will officially be designated a “River Town” today by the Susquehanna Greenways, an honor that’s been about six years in the making. “We are a small town and this really is a big deal,” Mayor Beverly Moore said. “We started with the “We are a Susquehanna Warsmall town rior Trail and now have plans to put and this in a boat launch, really is a playground, parking lot and campbig deal.” site.” The bike/hike Beverly Warrior Trail runs Moore along the west mayor bank of the Susquehanna from West Nanticoke to the PPL Riverlands Park near the PPL nuclear power plant in Salem Township. The proposed boat launch/campsite will be built near Canal Street with about $350,000 in state and federal grants, most of it already received from the state Fish and Boat Commission and the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Moore said. “It will be easier to access than the one at SCI Retreat,” Moore said, referring to a launch about four miles up river near a state prison. “We have the perfect spot for it. It’s patrolled, it’s safe, and there will be a playground adjacent to it.” Moore said the borough wanted to have all the money in place before building the boat launch and other facilities, hoping to begin construction this summer. But about $96,000 of the state money fell through. She is hoping to recoup that loss through a federal grant. The upshot: Construction probably won’t begin until next year. Using the money to better connect the town to the river fits the objectives of Susquehanna Greenways, a partnership of public and private organizations “dedicated to developing and sustaining the Susquehanna Greenway to connect communities and enrich lives through enhanced recreation, healthy living, economic prosperity and environmental stewardship,” according to their website. Shickshinny will receive a sign this afternoon noting it is a Susquehanna Greenways River Town, though Moore said no decision has been made as to the final placement of the sign. Moore, who said she has been mayor for 14 years, said the idea of pursuing the designation came after the success of hosting the Susquehanna Sojourn canoe trips. The trips explore a different section of the river and its west branch every year, typically lasting a week and covering about 100 miles of the waterway.

PennDOT’s new maintenance facility in Hanover Township is set to open in June.

PennDOT is moving its HQ State agency will move from Bear Creek Twp. to facility in Hanover Twp. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

HANOVER TWP. – It looks like an ordinary maintenance garage from the outside. On the inside, the facility will be Luzerne County’s headquarters for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. The $7.2 million facility is set to open in June. PennDOT’s District 4-0 spokeswoman Karen Dussinger said construction cost is $1.8 million under budget. “This will be our Luzerne County main office,” Dussinger said. “It has the big garage

bays where we will make repairs to vehicles and equipment.” Dussinger said PennDOT’s county office will relocate from its Bear Creek Township maintenance facility near the entrance/exit to the Pennsylvania Turnpike to its new location along Main Street in the Preston Section of Hanover Township. The new garage is being built in the shadows of the Huber Breaker on minescarred land that was reclaimed by Earth Conservancy. “The location was chosen because, as the PennDOT county office, it is centrally located within the county and provides easy access to Interstate 81,” Dussinger said. She said the Bear Creek facility, which was built in1937,

will remain open and used to keep supplies for road maintenance. Construction on the new maintenance garage began in January 2010. During the construction phase, there have been numerous thefts of tools, machines and supplies from the site, according to township police news releases. A Harveys Lake man was sentenced in January to one year probation for stealing 18 4-by-8 sheets of metal from the site in September. Two welding cables were stolen in early September, and in June, large quantifies of tools were stolen during burglaries of two construction trailers at the site. PennDOT District 4-0 maintains 3,600 miles of state

roads and 2,033 state bridges in six Northeastern Pennsylvania counties. Edward Lewis, a Times Leader staff writer, may be reached at 829-7196.

Judge approves sale of Mercy hospitals to CHS Owner of Wyoming Valley Health Care Systems purchases Scranton hospital, affiliates for $150M. The Associated Press

SCRANTON -- A Lackawanna County judge on Monday approved the $150 million sale of Scranton’s Mercy Hospital and affiliated facilities to Community Health Services Inc. The decision is the last formal step in the sale of hospitals in Scranton, Nanticoke and Tunkhannock, along with some outpatient clinics, to the for-profit company.

Judge Carmen Minora said Monday that Mercy Health Partners “sold it in the most responsible way possible.” Before the ruling, Mercy Health president Kevin Cook said the hospital could not generate capital needed for improvements and staff recruitment. Community Health Services has promised to invest at least $68 million over the next five years. Cook said the sale price will offset the $214 million in liabilities that will be assumed by parent company Catholic Health Partners, according to The Associated Press. In the deal, the Tennessee-based company has purchased Mercy Hospital,

Scranton; Mercy Tyler Hospital, Tunkhannock; and Mercy Special Care Hospital, Nanticoke. Referring to the $68 million, Tomi Galin, vice president of corporate communications for Community Heath Systems, said in an e-mail on Monday that, “The capital investment will be used to improve facilities, and upgrade medical equipment and facilities. After the transaction is complete more specific plans will be developed in collaboration with a new hospital board, which will be made up of local community leaders and members of the hospital medical staffs.” See MERCY, Page 4A

MARK GUYDISH OPINION

Judge’s abuses trump leniency in this decision

F

avorite phrase from last Friday’s federal court hearing regarding former Luzerne County Judge Michael Toole’s upcoming sentencing: “Crustaceans and kielbasa.” Toole’s attorney, Frank Nocito, coined the alliterative offering after attorney Harry Cardoni had testified that he annually gave lobster tail to Toole and other judges. He also slaked their search for spicy sausage with free kielbasa. Cardoni was on the stand because he’s the guy who ratted out Toole in order to save his own hide. For one week in each of three separate years, Cardoni gave Toole free use of a New Jersey beach house he owned and rented. Nocito was trying to prove the use of the house had a lower value than prosecutors claim. Under federal guidelines, Toole’s sentence drops if the value of the gifts he took slips below $10,000. Feds claim the free house use was repayment for help Toole offered from the bench. Cardoni needed a judge to pick a “neutral arbitrator” in an auto insurance dispute, and Toole had a staffer ask “Who do you want?” Then the judge appointed that person. It’s possible Toole simply didn’t understand the definition of “neutral.” Maybe he thought it meant the arbitrator wore a tan tie. It’s also possible that Toole might have been fixing a bet, not a court case. Nocito said his client had a gambling addiction that just kept getting worse. Perhaps he had started wagering on his own hearings. And it’s possible Toole was blotto and barely knew what he was doing. At the very least, odds are he had a hangover that would make a frat boy on spring break blush. Nocito described a man who began drinking in his teens and didn’t stop until his federal conviction, reaching the point where he could quaff 30 beers in a single night and somehow survive.

Toole doesn’t deserve a break You might think it odd all these serious character flaws were exposed during a hearing at which Nocito was arguing for leniency. I mean, if this were “Seinfeld,” attorney Jackie Chiles would be suavely insisting “Your Honor, my client was an alcohol-addled compulsive gambler chronically on the take at the time of the crime. But he’s better now!” In fairness to Nocito, he was a) just doing his job fulfilling a legal right all crooks have, and b) actually doing the job fairly well, considering how little he had to work with. And regardless of whether the judge decides on leniency when he finally sentences Toole, it’s important for the rest of us to remember we don’t have access to all the information he uses in making that decision. But to me, Nocito was shooting a lot of loud blanks. He suggested that Toole used the beach house only two nights a year, not a full week, so the value should be only $2,000 or so for the days used, not the $6,000-plus each week was worth. Try that one next time you rent a car. “But I only drove it two days out of the seven I had it!” And he argued Toole deserves some leniency because he rehabilitated himself since his conviction, drying up and staying dry despite tremendous difficulty landing even the most menial work. Good for Toole, and I mean it. But a year of pulling yourself out of a hole you dug for decades does not make a particularly compelling case here. Toole is where he is because he decided to sell public trust and his impartiality for free shore leave and some “crustaceans and kielbasa.” Leniency? Only if it had been crusts and kibble. And even then, maybe not. Call Mark Guydish at 829-7161 or e-mail mguydish@timesleader.com

Woman testifies to rape at age 11 Tim McGinley runs for county council “… but he put his hand on my mouth.” The woman said Drury told her not to worry, that she would enjoy the experience. “He threw my pajamas at me and said, ‘Happy Birthday,’ ” she said. Drury, who is currently incarcerated, is facing charges of rape of a person under 13 years old, aggravated indecent assault, incest, indecent assault and corruption of minors. Testimony will continue this morning. Assistant District Attorney Jenny Roberts said in her opening statement that evidence will show Drury is guilty of all charges brought against him. “(The woman) is going to tell you things you’re not going to want to hear,” Roberts said. “And things she won’t want to tell you.” Roberts said the woman did not report what occurred in October 2002 because she “wanted to forget about it” until she began having vivid nightmares in September 2008.

Drury eventually fled to Florida, Roberts said, because he learned the charges were going to be filed against him, allegedly telling friends, “You’ll never find me.” Drury’s attorney, Thomas Cometa, said the girl’s story is fabricated, and that she is “pointing the finger” at Drury as her only evidence, since there is no physical or medical evidence the events occurred. Cometa also said his client had been planning a trip to Florida for some time with two of his friends and he wanted to begin a new life there. Nothing like the alleged incident happened again, Cometa said, and the girl never told anyone until almost six years after it allegedly happened. Drury will testify in his own defense in the coming days, Cometa said, adding that Drury never knew the charges were filed against him.

WILKES-BARRE – A 19-yearold woman took the stand Monday afternoon and tearfully testified about the night Daniel John Drury Sr. allegedly raped her after her 11th birthday. “(He) came into my bedroom and raped me,” the woman, a sophomore in college, testified at the first day of Drury’s trial in Luzerne County Court. A jury of 13 men and one woman, including two alternates, was selected Monday morning. Luzerne County Senior Judge Joseph Augello is presiding.The woman testified she was sleeping in her bedroom a few days after her birthday, when Drury, 46, of Nanticoke, came into her bedroom, removed her pajama bottoms and raped her. “I tried to scream,” she testified,

PHILADELPHIA — Officials say sharpshooters have killed 600 deer at Valley Forge National Historical Park, or nearly half of the park’s estimated deer population. National Park Service officials say the first year of the four-year culling program has

sent more than nine tons of meat to food banks. Officials hope to reduce the white-tail deer population from an estimated 1,277 before the operation began in November to less than 200. They say the herd is devouring the native forest and crowding out other species.

Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi reacts Monday as he leaves the tribunal in Milan, Italy, where he made an appearance at a court hearing for a tax fraud case.

Abbas-Hamas unity sought President Mahmoud P alestinian Abbas is making a heavy push for

reconciliation with Hamas and is willing to give up hundreds of millions of dollars in U.S. aid if that’s what it takes to forge a Palestinian unity deal, a top aide said Monday. The comments were the latest sign that Abbas is giving up on stalled peace talks with Israel and prefers to pursue unity with Gaza’s Hamas rulers as he makes a push toward independence. “Of course we need the American money. But if they use it as a way of pressuring us, we are ready to relinquish that aid,” said Azzam Ahmed, an Abbas aide. The U.S. and Israel consider Hamas a terrorist group. The U.S. administration, the largest single donor to the Palestinians, withheld funds when Hamas was a part of a short-lived unity Palestinian government. WOBURN, MASS.

Kerrigan on witness list Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan is expected to be a witness at her brother’s upcoming manslaughter trial in the death of their 70-year-old father, according to a witness list filed in court Monday. Kerrigan’s name appears on a joint witness list filed by prosecutors and defense attorneys for Mark Kerrigan. The list does not specify which side plans to call the famous skater as a witness, but she has joined her family in publicly defending her brother. Prosecutors say Daniel Kerrigan died in January 2010 following a fight with his son at the family’s Stoneham, Mass., home. The Kerrigan family insists Daniel Kerrigan died of a longstanding heart condition and that Mark Kerrigan is not responsible. NAIROBI, KENYA

Pirates hijack oil tanker Pirates in two skiffs fired rocketpropelled grenades and guns at an oil tanker off East Africa before boarding the vessel and hijacking it, naval officials said Monday. The United Arab Emirates-flagged Zirku was traveling from Sudan to Singapore when it was hijacked by pirates in the Gulf of Aden on Monday, the EU Naval Force said. The ship has a crew of 29. There was no information on their status. Previous oil tankers hijacked by pirates were carrying oil valued in the range of $150 million. MADISON, WIS.

No deals with unions urged The Wisconsin school board association on Monday urged districts that have not reached new deals with teachers’ unions to hold off given the uncertainty over whether a new law removing nearly all collective bargaining rights is in effect. Many school districts, counties and municipalities have been rushing to reach deals before the law that takes away all bargaining rights except over base salary kicks in. Republican lawmakers pushed through passage of the law earlier this month despite massive protests that drew up to 85,000 people to the state Capitol and a boycott by Democratic state senators. Opponents immediately filed a series of lawsuits, and a hearing on one was scheduled today.

More radiation worries By SHINO YUASA Associated Press

TOKYO — Workers have discovered new pools of radioactive water leaking from Japan’s crippled nuclear complex that officials believe are behind soaring levels of radiation spreading to soil and seawater. Crews also detected plutonium — a key ingredient in nuclear weapons — in the soil outside the complex, though officials insisted Monday the finding posed no threat to public health. Plutonium is present in the fuel at the complex, which has been leaking radiation for more than two weeks, so experts had expected to find traces once crews began searching for evidence of it this week. The Fukushima Dai-ichi power plant was crippled March 11 when a tsunami spawned by a powerful earthquake slammed into Japan’s northeastern

coast. The huge wave destroyed the power systems needed to cool the nuclear fuel rods in the complex, 140 miles northeast of Tokyo. Since then, three of the complex’s six reactors are believed to have partially melted down, and emergency crews have struggled with everything from malfunctioning pumps to dangerous spikes in radiation that have forced temporary evacuations. Confusion at the plant has intensified fears that the nuclear crisis will continue for months or even years amid alarms over radiation making its way into produce, raw milk and even tap water as far away as Tokyo. The troubles have eclipsed Pennsylvania’s 1979 crisis at Three Mile Island, when a partial meltdown raised fears of widespread radiation release. But it is still well short of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, which killed at least 31 people with radiation sick-

Hidehiko Tokyo Electric PowNishiyama er Co., which runs the Nuclear and Industrial Safety complex, said plutoniAgency um was found in soil at five locations at the nuclear plant, but that only two samples appeared to be plutonium from the leaking reactors. The rest came from years of nuclear tests that left trace amounts of plutonium in many places around the world. While parts of the Japanese plant have been reconnected to the power grid, the contaminated water — which has now been found in numerous places around the complex, including the basements of several buildings — must be pumped out before electricity can be restored to the cooling system.

Gas prices draining extra cash By MARTIN CRUTSINGER AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON — Americans are earning and spending more, but a lot of the extra money is going down their gas tanks. Gas prices have drained more than half the extra cash Americans are getting this year from a cut in Social Security taxes. Unlike some other kinds of spending, paying more for gas doesn’t help the economy much. Most of the money goes overseas, and higher prices leave people with less money to buy appliances, computers, plane tickets and other things that can be postponed. “When food and gasoline prices are rising, it causes people to hunker down,” said Chris G. Christopher Jr., senior economist at IHS Global Insight.

Consumer spending jumped 0.7 percent last month, and personal incomes rose 0.3 percent, the Commerce Department said Monday. Both gains reflected the cut of two percentage points in the Social Security tax, raising take-home pay. They also illustrated how higher gas prices are stressing household budgets. After adjusting for inflation, spending rose just 0.3 percent. Aftertax incomes actually fell 0.1 percent. The Social Security tax cut will give most households an additional $1,000 to $2,000 this year. In December, when President Barack Obama signed it into law, economists predicted higher takehome pay would lead to more spendAP PHOTO ing and stronger economic growth. But gas prices have jumped more Larry Buckley leaves a Dollar Tree than 50 cents a gallon this year. store in Batavia, N.Y.

Democrats have readied a proposal to cut $20 billion more from this year’s budget, a party official said, but they haven’t yet sent it to House Republicans. That’s because they say it’s unclear whether the majority Republicans would accept a splitthe-difference bargain they’d earlier hinted at or will yield to demands of tea party-backed GOP freshmen for a tougher measure. The official spoke only on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. "Republicans refuse to negotiate," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid declared on Monday. "The infighting between the tea party and the rest of the Republican Party — including the Republican leadership in Congress — is keeping our negotiating partner from the negotiating table. And it’s pretty hard to negotiate without someone else on the other side of the table," the Nevada Democrat said. Republicans countered that it’s the Democrats who have yet to offer a serious plan to wrestle spending under control and that a Democratic offer from last week to cut $11 billion from the budget was laced with gimmickry. Time is running short. Stafflevel negotiations last week ran aground, and the principals are going to have to pick up the pace to have any chance of making an April 8 deadline to avoid a partial shutdown of the government. Right now it appears that the shutdown that both sides have sworn to avoid is possible — if not probable. The vehicle for the latest fighting is legislation to bankroll the day-to-day operating budgets of federal agencies — including military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan — through the Sept. 30 end of the budget year. Other major tests will soon follow, as House Republicans unveil a blueprint to attack the broader budget mess next week .

Syrian leader wavers between compromise, crackdown President Assad might announce end to 50-year state of emergency. By ZEINA KARAM Associated Press

DAMASCUS, Syria — Syrian President Bashar Assad wavered between cracking down and compromising Monday in one of the Middle East’s most authoritarian and anti-Western nations as thousands of protesters in a southern city defied security forces who fired tear gas to disperse them. The unrest in Syria, a strategically important country of 23 million people, could have implications well beyond the country’s borders given its role as Iran’s top Arab ally and as a front line state against Israel. “Nobody has an interest in

Syria going aflame,” said Hilal Khashan, a political science professor at the American University of Beirut. “Syrian instability has the potential of destabilizing the entire region.” The southern city of Daraa — parched by drought, rural and impoverished — has become the flashpoint for 10 days of anti-government protests in a country that has a history of brutally crushing dissent. At least 61 people have been killed since March 18, according to Human Rights Watch. Touched off by the arrest of several teenagers who scrawled anti-government graffiti on a wall in Daraa, the protests exploded nationwide on Friday. Security forces launched a swift crackdown, opening fire in at least six locations around the country — including the capital, Damascus, and the

country’s main port of Latakia. Assad, 45, is now facing down the most serious threat to his family’s four decades of authoritarian rule in this predominantly Sunni country, which is ruled by minority Alawites. The government has tried to calm the situation with concessions. Assad is expected to address the nation as early as today to announce he is lifting a nearly 50-year state of emergency and moving to annul other harsh restrictions on civil liberties and political freedoms. But while Syrians await the rumored announcement, security forces are trying to crush the unrest. Troops fired tear gas on a crowd of some 4,000 people in Daraa. They also fired live ammunition in the air to disperse the crowd.

We had a lot of people under the age of 30, which I think is impressive and really says something about our community and the vibrancy of our community,” Pugh said.

Times Leader Editor and Publisher Richard L.

I have a lot of duties as judge, but I wouldn’t miss this,” Mundy said. Attorney Jaime Anzalone, a 40 Under Forty winner last year who performed with County Line during the cocktail reception before the dinner, said the award is “a great idea for the area. Maybe the recognition will help encourage people under the age of 40 to stay here, because that’s what we need, that’s what we’re struggling with.” Connor said honoring folks in the community with the 40 Under Forty and other awards “is the kind of thing that we get to do outside of covering news and selling advertising that help make our jobs more worthwhile.” “It’s particularly great for us to recognize people in both Lu-

Florence valued cheerful friends, and loved to laugh, long and hard. She is survived by her husband,

By PETER JACKSON Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania’s state-owned liquor and wine stores do a better job collecting taxes, enforcing the drinking age and offering a broad selection of products at competitive prices than private operators would, the head of the largest state-store employee union said Monday. Wendell W. Young IV, whose union represents about 2,500, said privatization advocates’ estimate of a $2 billion windfall from the sale of liquor licenses is greatly exaggerated and that annual revenues may fall $180 million shy of the roughly $500 million a year the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board now generates. Republican Gov. Tom Corbett has endorsed the privatization of the liquor and wine business, largely because the expected additional revenue would help address the state’s budget problems. No up-todate, independent analysis has been done, but a leading advocate, House Majority Leader Mike Turzai, R-Allegheny, is working on — but has not introduced — the necessary legislation. The Corbett administration is preparing to begin a study. Turzai spokesman Steve Miskin said he expects that research to completed by May and that, at least until then, Turzai stands by the $2 billion estimate. “The licenses have a value. Exactly what that value is, you’re not going to know until the license are actually auctioned off,” Miskin said.

Relatives and friends may call from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday at the funeral home. Military Honors will be afforded by the AmVets Honor Guard Post 189.

Also surviving are a brother, Rev. Edwin Martin, Columbus, Ohio, along with several nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be held 9:30 a.m. Friday from the Gubbiotti Funeral Home, 1030 Wyoming Ave., Exeter, with a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. at the Trinity Episcopal Church, corner of Spring Street and Montgomery Avenue, West Pittston, with the Rev. John Major, pastor, officiating. Interment will be in Memorial Shrine Burial Park, Carverton. Friends may call from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the funeral home. Donations, if desired, may be made to the West Pittston Library or to the Trinity Episcopal Church.

Gov. stands by stance against drilling tax

Corbett speaks at County Commissioners Association to gain support for budget. By MARC LEVY The Associated Press

HARRISBURG — Gov. Tom Corbett defended his proposal to slash funding for education and his stance against taxing Pennsylvania’s booming natural gas exploration Monday as county commissioners and protesting college students descended on the capital. The Republican made the 35minute speech at the spring meeting of the Pennsylvania County Commissioners Association in Harrisburg in an effort to build support for the $27.3 billion budget proposal he presented to the Legislature three weeks ago. With county officials aware that they likely will have to provide a range of social services with less state help, Corbett lashed out at what he called a credit-card culture in state government that left him with no choice but to cut his way out of a projected $4 billion deficit. "If we don’t change this course, that gap is going to continue to increase and we will soon spend $8 billion more than we are taking in," said Corbett, who pledged during the guber-

Young, speaking at a Pennsylvania Press Club luncheon, said the state stores turn over 100 percent of the liquor and sales tax revenue they collect, while states that have privatized often must take legal action to recover taxes collected by companies that went out of business or tried to cheat. Young, president of Local 1776 of the United Food and Commercial Workers, said experience in other states suggests most of the liquor licenses would be bought by convenience stores and similarly small enterprises that would offer a limited selection at high prices. Conversely, between 2,000 and 6,000 items are available at the more than 600 state stores, and people can special-order any of 30,000 products through the PLCB system, Young said. PLCB officials, moving to head off the privatization push, said last week that they could support additional changes to make their operation more consumer-friendly, such as expanding Sunday operating hours and allowing wine and liquor to be shipped directly to homes instead of requiring customers to pick it up at a state store.

March 26, 2011 avid Roy Evans, 42, of Hunlock Creek, died peacefully on SaturD day, March 26, 2011, of a lengthy ill-

natorial campaign last year not to raise taxes. "And I don’t care how many taxes you pass, you’re not going to make up an $8 billion difference in a few years." Without action, he warned, children of the state’s taxpayers "are going to be stuck with a debt they will never be able to pay down." He attacked his predecessor, Democrat Ed Rendell, for using temporary federal recession aid to increase education spending, rather than to repair highways or upgrade sewer systems. And he singled out tuition increases at Penn State of five times the rate of inflation over the past decade. Over the same period, the average salary of a full-time professor rose 38 percent, he said. Regarding Monday’s student rally, Corbett said, "If I was a university student I’d probably be doing the same thing, but shouldn’t they be asking (about) the raises that I just described?" Corbett spent a long portion of his speech making the case for why he opposes taxing natural gas production from the hotly pursued Marcellus Shale formation beneath Pennsylvania. He would like to persuade Texas-based energy companies to move their corporate headquarters to Pennsylvania, but taxing them would foil that aim, he said.

mate on when the conflict might end. He never described the U.S.led military campaign as a "war" and gave no details on its costs, but he offered an expansive case for why he believed it was in the national interest of the United States and allies to act. In blunt terms, Obama said the U.S.-led response had stopped Gadhafi’s advances and halted a slaughter he warned could have shaken the stability of an entire region. "To brush aside America’s responsibility as a leader and — more profoundly — our responsibilities to our fellow human beings under such circumstances would have been a betrayal of who we are," Obama said.

States.’ President Obama said Monday night that he took action in Libya for humanitarian reasons. “That’s all well and good, but before he risked shedding any American blood, the president should have come before Congress and explained what we were doing because there was no immediate threat against the United States of America.” Casey, D-Scranton, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in a statement after Obama’s speech that he supports the decision to take military action in Libya, along with “our NATO partners and the Arab League to prevent the killing of tens of thousands of Libyan civilians. Casey said he also supports the “expeditious transfer of lead responsibility to NATO,” and added that more Arab League member nations should play a “more active and constructive role by contributing financially to the effort.” But Casey also said that, “it’s also important to be honest about the evolving role of the U.S. moving forward. The U.S. has the most substantial military in NATO and we will likely incur some additional expenditure by participating in this continued engagement. “We need to take a close look at these costs and weigh them against our continued missions in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as our commitments to vital domestic interests,” Casey said. Meanwhile, Rep. Tom Marino, R-Lycoming Township, said he missed seeing the president’s speech live because he was at a town hall meeting with constituents in Pike County. He said through a spokeswoman that he planned to watch the speech late Monday night when he got home and would comment after viewing it.

America is different. And as president, I refused to wait for the images of slaughter and mass graves before taking action." Obama spoke to a respectful military audience at the National Defense University. The address to the nation was the president’s most aggressive attempt to answer the questions mounting from Republican critics, his own party and war-weary Americans — chiefly, why the U.S. was immersed in war in another Muslim nation.

Amid protests and crackdowns across the Middle East and North Africa, Obama stated his case that Libya stands alone. "In this particular country, at this particular moment, we were faced with the prospect of violence on a horrific scale," he said. He also warned of the broader implications for the region, without naming the other countries undergoing violent upheaval. Obama took pains to say why he chose to intervene in Libya even while acknowledging that

America’s military cannot be used to stamp out every instance of repression. "There will be times when our safety is not directly threatened, but our interests and values are," the president said.

The president also sought to address critics who have said the U.S. mission remains muddled. He reiterated the White House position that Gadhafi should not remain in power but the U.N. resolution that authorized power does not go that far. Reaction to the speech in Congress tended to break along partisan lines.

OUR OPINION: CORRUPTION

Time for Toole to do the time

I

guilty to tax evasion. By now, you’d think Toole would be embarrassed, repentant and Toole prepared to take his punishment. But, no. Instead, he’ll squeeze the system for all he can get. Toole’s defense attorney last week argued the ex-jurist should get a reduction in his likely jail term of 27 to 33 months because, among other things, after his arrest he voluntarily had entered a treatment program for a drinking problem. Toole sometimes downed 30 beers in a night and had been a heavy gambler, attorney Frank Nocito said of his client. For that Toole wants leniency? Let’s say parents ground their teenage daughter because she ignores curfew, goes to a party and drinks a beer. A few days later the daughter, who isn’t allowed to leave the house for three months except to go to school, asks for a reduced sentence because she cleaned her bedroom. Uh-uh. No way. Go to jail, Mr. Toole. Go directly to jail. Do not pass “Go,” do not collect … well, crustaceans, or kielbasa rings or $200. Just go to jail.

N THE EYES of crook and former Luzerne County judge Michael T. Toole, the legal system is something to be bent and warped to suit his selfish interests. While “serving” on the bench, he began serving himself and abandoned the notion of fairness. In cahoots with a Kingston attorney, he assigned a hand-picked arbiter in 2006 to participate in an uninsured motorist insurance arbitration case. The arbitration panel ultimately awarded $1 million in the case. As a “thank-you” for his role in perverting justice, Toole later received free use of the attorney’s New Jersey beach house. Oh, and the attorney, Harry Cardoni, also showered the judge each year with gifts: lobster tail and kielbasa. Pretty sickening behavior, the kind of illegal deal-making one might expect in a Third World country. Perhaps all-toocommon behavior, however, for Toole and his cronies. Caught in a widespread public corruption crackdown in Northeastern Pennsylvania, Toole pleaded guilty last year to corrupt receipt of a reward for official actions. In an unrelated incident, the wayward judge was accused of failing to report to the Internal Revenue Service a $30,000 fee he received for referring a case to a different attorney. He pleaded

OTHER OPINION: COLLEGE RATES

Do more to boost athlete graduations

U

.S. EDUCATION Secretary Arne Duncan has been speaking up lately about low graduation rates for student-athletes at some colleges and universities. We applaud his effort to highlight the problem, but there are better solutions than his proposal to bar basketball teams with graduation rates below 50 percent from the NCAA tournament. Mind you, no school should be proud of a rate like that. It’s just that the system is more complex than most realize. There are three ways to measure graduation rates – the federal rate, the graduation success rate and the academic progress rate – and they have varying results. Each method is flawed, because a numerical formula can’t easily account for all the variables affecting a basket-

ball team. (The formulas are more reliable for football teams, which are much larger, and for athletic departments as a whole.) Players transfer. Coaches leave and arrive, sweeping players out with them. Kids leave for the NBA – should that choice be considered a failure for the school? And some teams with low rates actually do better than their schools as a whole; punishing them seems unfair. Colleges and universities must do more to ensure academic success for studentathletes, tying coaches’ compensation to student performance and adequately funding academic support. And the NCAA must demand accountability, particularly for the worst offenders, rather than imposing Duncan’s one-size-fits-all solution. San Jose Mercury News

LETTERS FROM READERS

Full-time principal needed at Wycallis Elementary

I

am very concerned about the decision by the Dallas School Board to eliminate the principal position at Wycallis Elementary (“Dallas District faces reductions,” March 22). I appreciate that Assistant Superintendent Paul Reinert has “volunteered to serve as Wycallis principal in addition to his current responsibilities,” but the students at Wycallis deserve a full-time, dedicated principal. I have lots of respect for Dr. Reinert, but he is not super-human. This decision demonstrates a lack of creativity and, frankly, poor judgment. To all those citizens who vote for candidates who espouse lower taxes and smaller government, it sounds great in theory but there are serious consequences. We are jeopardizing this county’s future by gutting publicly funded education. School districts throughout this state and country are in a very difficult situation. They must deal with reduced funding from state and federal sources while at the same time trying to improve (or at least maintain) quality. So, yes, Dallas is in a bind. With that said, the decision by the school board is unacceptable. I encourage everyone to come out to the next school board meeting and demand a full-time principal for Wycallis students. (The next regular school board meeting will be held at 7 p.m. April 11 in the administration building.) I will be there. Edward Foote Trucksville

I

am writing in response to the commentary “‘Bath salts’ sellers should come clean” (March 22). I think what the author has written is asinine and unfair at best. Although I am not in favor of drug use or shops that promote drug use, I think it is irrational to call these types of shops “pushers” just because they sell something that is legal and comes with warnings. That is like saying because a liquor store or bar sells alcohol, it is responsible for the person who uses it, then gets into a car accident, killing someone else. It is not fair to place blame on the store that sells the items. Technically what they are selling is not illegal, so if a person buys and consumes these products in the wrong way, it is no one’s fault except the user. Each individual needs to be held accountable for the decisions he or she makes, instead of passing on the buck to someone else. Amy Hughes Hughestown

Writer believes parades need to be made safer

T

wice in the past few months I have gone to downtown Wilkes-Barre to see parades. I have arrived beforehand and positioned myself on the curbstone to view and enjoy them. Both times, latecomers pushed their way and their children’s way out onto the street and blocked the early arrivers’ views. Both times, parents, and some grandparents, proved themselves to have little or no parenting skills by allowing their young ones to go out farther and farther into the street to retrieve candy and trinkets. At the Santa Claus parade, one small child nearly went under the wheels of a tractor-trailer to get penny candy, while the supposed-to-be-in-charge adult paid no attention. These people went so far into the parade route that they were inches, and I mean inches, from the center line of the street. At both parades they prevented the marchers from having enough room to proceed or perform. Fire trucks and other vehicles practically were brushing against these ignoramuses. If they want to be that close to the parade, then why not join some of the groups and march rather than prevent others from enjoying the festivities? I’m sure their children would be able to take home any leftover candy. At the St. Patrick’s Day parade, I spotted a young officer and asked him to do something about moving back the people. He accused me of yelling at him. If I was, then, sir, I owe you an apology. The point I was trying to make is people could get hurt. My solution to this situation is threefold: First, put barriers along the route to keep people out of the street; second, do not allow candy or other treats or trinkets to be thrown from floats or by the marching units; and third, place parade officials or police along the barriers to enforce them. These suggestions could prevent a tragedy and/or a lawsuit by parents of a child who has been hurt or killed. Lucy A. Edwards Wilkes-Barre

Even if Social Security recipients get a cost-of-living raise for the first time in three years, it’s likely that it will be erased by a larger increase in Medicare premium payments. Ray Landis, AARP Pennsylvania advocacy manager, and U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, say it’s time to re-evaluate the formula used to calculate the increases. “It’s been two years without a COLA increase, but the true cost of living is not taken into consideration in the formula,” Landis said. “Everything is going up – prescription drugs, energy, food. And those things go up at a higher rate than what the COLA increase usually is. The true cost of living is not taken into consideration.” Barletta agrees, saying it’s unfair the way the adjustments are calculated. “Congress has to take a look at the calculation and figure out a way to correct it,” Barletta said. “Any increase in Social Security will be eaten up by an increase in Medicare, and that just shouldn’t be.” Barletta said he learned that energy costs are not a part of the COLA calculation. “Over the last two years, energy costs have skyrocketed,” he said. “The AARP is strongly urging the government to take a look at the formula,” Landis said. “Even with a 1.2 percent Bill O’Boyle, a Times Leader staff COLA increase, everything writer, may be reached at 570-970else is going up at a much high- 7218.

Dussinger said motorists who have taken the old camelback steel-truss bridge know all too well the antiquated structure’s difficulties. “The reasons why the bridge was replaced are obvious to all who traveled the old bridge: narrow lanes, structural deterioration, no shoulders, narrow sidewalk. It was functionally obsolete as well as structurally deficient,” Dussinger said. She added that “the bridge had been weight-restricted to vehicles for some time now, and PennDOT stepped up its inspection schedule from every two years, which is the norm, to every couple of months, due to deterioration.” The original bridge will be demolished this spring.

er rate. It’s a no-win situation.” Landis said the decision on increases in Social Security and Medicare will be announced in September or October. “They have to come up with a more realistic formula to reflect a true cost of living increase for seniors,” Landis said. “And we have to get health care costs under control.” Founded in 1958, AARP is a nonprofit, non-partisan membership organization that helps people 50 and older improve the quality of their lives. By law, Social Security cost-ofliving adjustments are determined each year by a government measure of inflation. When consumer prices go up, payments go up and when consumer prices fall, payments stay flat until prices rebound. There had been a COLA every year from 1975 through 2009, when a spike in energy prices resulted in a 5.8 percent increase, the largest in 27 years. The Associated Press reported that next year, the trustees who oversee Social Security project a 1.2 percent COLA. President Obama, in his spending proposal for the budget year that begins Oct. 1, projects a COLA of 0.9 percent. The Associated Press contributed to this story.

Hughes, 50, of Mountain Top, was one of the highest vote-getters in the judicial race in 2009, receiving 31,000 votes and placing third to current judges William Amesbury and Tina Polachek Gartley. “When I didn’t win, I was determined to run again,” Hughes said. His years as an assistant district attorney and private civil attorney have prepared him to serve as judge, he said. The father of three has prosecuted homicide trials, handled federal criminal and civil cases, and done everything from landlord/tenant disputes to estate planning. “My work (as an assistant district attorney) is the work I enjoy the most, and I am most proud of,” Hughes said. He discussed ways he would help the court system progress if elected, including reducing the number of backlogged cases by possibly utilizing Hazleton office hours for judges to handle cases in southern Luzerne County. “It could save time, money and be more efficient,” Hughes said. He said he also favors re-establishing the Central Court system but making tweaks to it to handle cases efficiently. Calling a meeting of chiefs of police and making sure there are enough assistant district attorneys is one way to expedite cases at the Central Court – district judge – level, Hughes said.

SAN FRANCISCO — Barry Bonds’ former mistress testified Monday that he blamed a 1999 elbow injury on steroid use, and that the body and behavior of baseball’s home run king changed during their nine-year relationship. Called by prosecutors to the witness

cused of four counts of making false statements and one of obstruction for telling a federal grand jury in 2003 — months after his relationship with Bell ended — that he never knowingly used performance-enhancing drugs. Bell took the stand Monday morning after San Francisco Giants clubhouse manager Mike Murphy nervously testified that Bonds needed a bigger hat for the 2002 season. Prosecutors say that testimony is important because an enlarged head is a side effect of human growth hormone use. Under questioning from Assistant

stand, Kimberly Bell choked up as she recalled Bonds once threatening “to cut my head off and leave me in a ditch,” an outburst prosecutors attribute to steroid use.

Bonds, who holds the major league record for home runs in a career, is ac-

Bell also said that Bonds talked about the widespread use of steroids among baseball players, including his suspicion that Mark McGwire was juicing during See BONDS, Page 4B

Coach has Wildcats in Final Four in just his second year at school. By WILL GRAVES AP Sports Writer

LEXINGTON, Ky. — When Kentucky officials met with coach John Calipari two years ago to talk about the program’s vacant head coaching position, they came armed with a sales pitch. Turns out, they didn’t need one. Instead, it was Calipari who ended up doing the selling. When university Calipari President Lee Todd and athletic director Mitch Barnhart outlined their vision for returning the Wildcats to glory, Calipari cut them short and assured them he was the man for the job. “He said, ‘This is it: Notre Dame football and Kentucky basketball, and I want to be a part of Kentucky,’” Todd said. “I knew then we had the right man.” Standing in a giddy postgame locker room on Sunday night after Calipari See CALIPARI, Page 3B

Fredette tops All-America team voting By JIM O’CONNELL AP Basketball Writer

Seniors dominated The Associated Press All-America team for the first time in five years. Jimmer Fredette of BYU, Nolan Smith of Duke and JaJuan Johnson of Purdue, all seniors, were joined on the team Monday by junior Kemba Walker of Connecticut and Fredette freshman Jared Sullinger of Ohio State. It’s the most seniors since four made the 2006 team. Fredette led the nation in scoring at 28.5 points per game while shooting 40.4 percent from 3-point range, a number more impressive because of the shots he lets fly from well behind the line. He received all but one vote from the 65-member national media panel See TEAM, Page 3B

WVW beats frigid temperatures, Cougars By JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com

KINGSTON – Spring didn’t show up Monday for the start of girls spring soccer. One of the top players in the Wyoming Valley Conference did, and she helped Wyoming Valley West kick off its season with a victory. Junior Kelcie Hromisin assisted one goal and scored another on a penalty kick as the Spartans defeated Hazleton Area 2-0 on a frigid afternoon at Spartan Stadium. The victory gave Valley West (1-0) and early upper hand on Hazleton Area (0-1) in the battle for the crown in newly formed Division 1-B.

“We were supposed to have two exhibiVALLEY WEST tions and a scrimmage, and they all got snowed out,” Valley West coach Mike DaHAZLETON vitt said. “(We looked) AREA better than I thought we would to be honest with you. The reason for that is because we had nothing to measure our practices against. “We didn’t have that exhibition or scrimmage to see what we had to work on.” Hromisin alleviated any concerns she had much work to do. A Times Leader All-WVC selection last year, the junior forward set up fellow junior Alex Lecce

with Valley West’s first goal exactly 10 minutes into the game. Hromisin beat a defender inside the left part of the penalty area, but played the ball just a bit too long to get off a shot. She managed to run down the ball before it crossed the backline, then played it back to Lecce. Lecce, who was trailing the play, connected on a grounder from about 14 yards out. “She doesn’t stop,” Davitt said of Hromisin. “She keeps going. You can never tell that girl she can’t do anything because she’ll just prove you wrong time in and time out. It’s nice to have a player of her caliber, and her conditioning as See SOCCER, Page 4B

PAUL SOKOLOSKI OPINION

More than just talent is taking Pens to the top

T

heir division-clinching victory proved inspirational to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, even if it wasn’t fluid or pretty. It came in a building where 11 Calder Cup championship banners including the last two hang, which is what the Penguins are after. It happened against Hershey, which always comes after the Penguins. And it was sealed with an overtime goal as an inner strength, which is what the Penguins are all about. That Bryan Lerg made the shot that made the Penguins AHL East Division champions was a perfect fit for that game and this Penguins season. Because after a strong start to his Sunday night in Hershey, Lerg got lost for awhile during a night of clogged ice space, missed passes and action flowing about as smoothly as oil. But suddenly, there was Lerg making a slick move from nowhere with his team shorthanded in overtime, speeding down the ice with the puck before lifting over standout goalie Braden Holtby for a 3-2 Penguins victory. “It’s great to see him be able to get that,” Penguins coach John Hynes said. “He works hard. He kind of reflects a lot of our players, a lot of guys with heart and grit and skill.” Those hearts appeared broken. Especially when Hershey scoring star Keith Aucoin slid a sizzler between the legs of Penguins goalie John Curry to tie the game at 2-2 with less than two minutes to go in regulation. But the Penguins aren’t just a regular AHL team. “People might have thought it would have taken the wind out of our sails, but it didn’t at all,” Lerg said. How could it not? The Bears had their home crowd stirring, their second life in overtime, and a chance to extend their remote chance of catching the Penguins at the top of the East Division for at least one more night. But the Penguins had that team full of grit Hynes was talking about. “I think we had a lot of will to win this game,” Curry said, “especially with what was on the line, who we were playing. Everyone on the bench was saying there was no way we were going to take a loss.” Instead, they took home a piece of history, breaking a single-season franchise record with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s 52nd victory. That page of the record book turned slowly and stubbornly. Free areas of the ice were few and far between. Pinpoint passes regularly missed sticks on both sides. The puck kept taking odd bounces and abnormal angles to its intended destination. And half the time, players couldn’t even find it when it was sitting at their feet. “That’s a playoff game right there,” Lerg said. “That’s exactly what we can expect come playoff time, if we see Hershey. You’ve just got to keep strong on those guys, and hopefully, they’ll break.” By now, it’s apparent the character of the Penguins won’t crack. “The regular season gives you different challenges you have to go through as a group, and (Sunday) was one of them,” Hynes said. “The end result was going to be what it was. It’s about enjoying the competition of a game like this. “Whether you win or lose, this game makes you a better team.” At the home of the two-time defending champion, it’s where the Penguins confirmed belief they’re the best.

It’s just been a fun ride and I think we showed how much fun we can have on the court every game.” The urban university, once viewed as a mostly commuter school, has toppled some of the college game’s elite programs. The Rams earned their way to this weekend’s semifinals in Houston with a 71-61 victory against mighty Kansas on Sunday in a game that rarely was as close as the final score.

The Jayhawks led 6-0 early, and the Rams didn’t flinch. “We kept our composure and hit ’em right back,” point guard Joey Rodriguez said. Smart, who has become one of the hottest names in coaching in only his second season, now boasts a 10-0 career record in postseason play; VCU went 5-0 to win the CBI last season. But this year’s success seemed unlikely when they finished 3-5 in February, and showed up at the Colonial Athletic Association tournament thinking they had to win it to make the NCAA field. Turns out they won just enough. VCU used a buzzer-beater from Jamie Skeen in the quarterfinals to slip past Drexel, and then played one of their best games to oust regular season champion

George Mason, 79-63. Though they lost to Old Dominion in the championship, Smart sensed something different, and hearing their unexpected at-large bid blasted by commentators has only fueled their run. “We knew that we had turned the corner as a team and that we were playing much better,” Smart said, referring to the Rams’ win that ended George Mason’s 16-game winning streak. And though he was unsure if VCU would get in, Smart said the Rams “felt like if we got the opportunity to play in the NCAA tournament, we could certainly make a run.” It is how they are doing it on that run that is really turning heads. Only Florida State, beaten on

Burgess’ layup with 7 seconds left in overtime, has been close against the Rams’ pressing defense and 43.8 percent postseason 3-point shooting. Southern Cal lost by 13. Georgetown and Purdue by 18 each. And Kansas by 10. Now, Burgess said, the Rams feel there is nothing they can’t do. “As the wins kept coming, we’ve gained more confidence and we’ve just been saying, ’We don’t want this ride to end,”’ he said. “Getting to Houston, why not try to go and win two games?” The Rams (28-11) face Butler (27-9) in the semifinals on Saturday night. The Bulldogs lost to Duke in the national championship game last season, but the Rams won’t be intimidated. “We just have a lot of belief in

Alabama is in NIT semis, but defeated Kentucky and coach was previously at VCU. By MIKE FITZPATRICK AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK — All four coaches in the NIT semifinals gathered for photos Monday, three wearing snappy suits and ties. Anthony Grant sported a red Alabama pullover. If the Crimson Tide coach wanted to remind everyone which team was his, there was good reason. Grant took as many questions — if not more — about his former squad at Virginia Commonwealth than his current one from Tuscaloosa. “I’m the coach at Alabama,” he patiently reminded reporters. Yes, March has turned into a wild and magnificent ride for just about anyone with ties to VCU, and Grant is no different. He spent three seasons on the Rams’ sideline, guiding them to a pair of NCAA tournaments and a first-round upset of Duke in 2007 before bolting for a bigger job at Alabama two years ago. Though his team was left out of the NCAAs this month despite winning the SEC West, Grant quickly got his guys refocused and the Crimson Tide has rolled into Madison Square Garden, where it plays Colorado tonight for a spot in Thursday’s championship game. Wichita State faces Washington State in the first semifinal. When the Tide’s season is done, Grant is looking forward to watching the 11th-seeded Rams take on Butler in the Final Four on Saturday. But first, Alabama (24-11) goes for its initial NIT title in its sixth trip to the semifinals. A national power in football, the Tide is trying to build some basketball success behind freshman point guard Trevor Releford, sophomore forward Tony Mitchell and 6-foot-8 junior JaMychal Green, who surprised Grant recently by saying he would stay for his senior season rather than jump to the NBA. After struggling early against nonconference competition, Alabama has won 19 of its last 24 games — including a victory over Final Four participant Kentucky. The Crimson Tide went a schoolrecord 19-0 at home this season but was left out when the NCAA field was announced on Selection Sunday.

that selects the weekly Top 25. The voting was done before the NCAA tournament. Fredette became one of the most popular players in recent memory as teams that lost to BYU were “jimmered.” “I think that it’s a great accomplishment. Unbelievable,” BYU coach Dave Rose said. “It shows how good his work ethic is. He’s a player who has worked his way

each other,” Rodriguez said. “We believe in our skills and whatever coach teaches us and we go out there and perform. We’re not scared of anybody.” And the tournament has shown they don’t need to be afraid with the cast they bring: Skeen, who transferred after two seasons at Wake Forest, was the most outstanding player of the Southwest regional after scoring 26 points against the Morris twins, Marcus or Markieff. Rodriguez, the team’s steady, unquestioned leader, started his career playing alongside Eric Maynor — now with the NBA’s Oklahoma Thunder — for former VCU coach Anthony Grant. Rodriguez was so upset when Grant left for Alabama that he almost transferred.

Promising duo chose small school By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer

INDIANAPOLIS — Matt Howard followed his heart. Shelvin Mack took the best offer he had. So many people thought these two guys could have done better than playing basketball at Butler. Better than three league championships, three straight NCAA tournament appearances and the first Indiana team to make consecutive Final Fours? “Has Matt Howard maximized his four years here?” coach Brad Stevens said. “I don’t think there’s anyone that can doubt that.” Howard and his sidekick have done things most never thought possible at this small Indianapolis school. A year ago, it was the threeheaded monster of Howard, Mack and Gordon Hayward that nearly gave Butler its first national title. When Hayward left early for the NBA, most thought Butler’s heartwarming, underdog story would just fade away. Instead, the Matt & Mack Show has emerged as the hotinto an All-American. What he’s meant to our program over the last four years — it’s really kind of immeasurable.” He is BYU’s first All-America since Danny Ainge in 1981. “If you go out and play your game and have confidence in yourself, you can accomplish great things,” Fredette said. “That’s what I’ve always said in my head, and it’s worked out.” Smith, who received 61 votes, averaged 21.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 5.2 assists in leading the Blue Devils to the top of the polls for 10 weeks this season.

test late-game act in the NCAA tournament. Howard, the senior forward, hit the buzzer-beating shot to knock off Old Dominion in Butler’s first game, and the free throws to close out the crazy finish against top-seeded Pittsburgh in its second. Mack, the junior shooting guard, has averaged 21.3 points, hit every big shot Howard hasn’t and raised his stock among NBA scouts. Not a bad apprenticeship for a assumed most of the ball-handling for Duke after star freshman Kyrie Irving went down early in the season with a toe injury and was responsible for defending the other team’s top perimeter player. “It’s been a long process for me, just getting better each year and improving,” Smith said. “That’s something I hope to share with younger kids coming up. If you put the time in and get better and better and then by the time your senior year hits, you’ll start to accomplish some of those individual goals, and that’s

kid who turned down a late scholarship offer from Kentucky. By the time the Wildcats finally woke up to the guy making waves in their own backyard, it was too late. “I didn’t think it was the best offer for me,” said Mack, who admits he’d like a shot to play his hometown team for the national title next week. Or for the one who heard the minions deriding his choice something that I’ve done.” Smith is the fifth Duke player to be an All-America since 2000; two of them — Jason Williams and J.J. Redick — were selected twice. Sullinger burst onto to the national scene by averaging 17.2 points and 10.1 rebounds while shooting 53.6 percent. The 6foot-9 Sullinger, the seventh freshman All-America over the last five years, received 58 votes. “I felt he was going to have a great impact not just on our program but on college basketball. The productivity he’s had

from the outset. “When I first committed here, there were a lot of people who were not exactly happy that I didn’t go to Indiana or Purdue,” Howard said. “But it’s not always about the name.” The Bulldogs (27-9) have proven that repeatedly over the last two seasons. But the Bulldogs knew what they had in these two right from the start. Howard became an immediate starter as a freshman, a rarity at Butler, and won the league’s top newcomer award in 2008. The next year, he was conference player of the year and is closing out his career with two Final Four trips. In 2009, three more freshmen — Mack, Hayward and Ronald Nored — joined Howard in the starting lineup and all the Bulldogs did was win the Horizon League’s regular-season title and earn an NCAA tournament bid. Experience only upped the ante, and Howard and Mack have responded by taking the Butler program to unprecedented heights. throughout the course of the season has really been incredible,” Buckeyes coach Thad Matta said. “He so much fun to coach. As I’ve said, if I was starting a team, I’d select him to be our first player.” Walker had a strong start to the season and then capped it with an incredible performance in leading the Huskies to five wins in as many days to win the Big East tournament. He averaged 23.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists and was the leader of one of the youngest teams in the country.

led the Wildcats to their first Final Four since 1998, Todd believes now more than ever the school made the right call. “The more I see him on a daily basis, and (the way) he coaches and teaches players, the more proud I am of the decision we made,” Todd said. Even if it came at a steep cost — eight years and $31.65 million — and a bit of a gamble. Calipari’s resume is brilliant but also pockmarked with a couple of NCAA splotches that are hard to ignore. Kentucky plays Connecticut Saturday in Houston. In Calipari’s previous visits to the Final Four, with Massachusetts in 1996 and Memphis in 2008, they were later vacated by the NCAA for rule violations. Though Calipari was not found at fault in either instance, the stigma is something he bristles at. And it’s something that follows him wherever he goes. Even as Calipari celebrated with his players on the floor of the Prudential Center on Sunday evening after joining Rick Pitino as the only men’s coach in NCAA history to lead three schools to the Final Four, a fan stood 20 feet from the floor and taunted Calipari, repeatedly shouting “it will just be vacated.” The next week will give Calipari the stage he’s coveted for much of his career. He’s spent most of his 25-plus seasons in coaching as an outsider who thrived finding success in unlikely places. Now he’s winning at a place where it’s demanded by one of the most passionate fan bases in the country. Calipari remains adamant that he’s done nothing wrong, but knows there is a faction that remains unsatisfied with his answers. “We will all be judged 50 years from now,” Calipari said. “The good news is, there will be no emotion to it where someone wants to be nasty and mean; it won’t be here. It will be here’s the facts, here’s what he’s done.” All Calipari has done at Kentucky is win and found a way to prosper in a seat that wore down Tubby Smith and chewed up Billy Gillispie in two short years. Though he said during his introductory press conference two years ago he didn’t want to be an emperor, he’s reveled in the spotlight coaching at Kentucky provides. He’s made Kentucky basketball fun again. Superfan Ashley Judd has returned to Rupp Arena. LeBron James has stopped by for a visit. And Jay-Z strolled into the locker room after the Wildcats secured their 14th Final Four appearance to congratulate the somewhat awestruck players. Where Smith grew reticent and Gillispie outright rebelled against the role of ambassador that comes with the job, the 52year-old Calipari has embraced it with a fervor of someone half his age. His infectious energy — and his ability to lure the top high school players to Lexington — has returned the Wildcats to a perch the program has long considered its birthright. And he’s done it with a team that was supposed to be a bridge between last year’s “once in a lifetime” group that featured five first-round NBA draft picks and next year’s incoming class that could be nearly as deep.

SPRING TRAINING ROUNDUP

Tough luck again for DE Massaro

Late home run lifts Red Sox over Jays

By DEREK LEVARSE dlevarse@timesleader.com

For the second time in three years, Pete Massaro’s season has ended in the spring. A returning starter for Penn State at defensive end, Massaro will miss the rest of 2011 after tearing the ACL in his left knee during a practice on Friday, the school confirmed Monday. Massaro was also forced to miss the 2009 season after tearing the ACL in his right knee during the Blue-White Game that April. The Newtown Square native rebounded to claim a starting job early in the 2010 season, and was often the Nittany Lions’ most effective pass rusher. After recording 37 tackles and 31⁄2 sacks, Massaro was projected to start at defensive end again in 2011 along with Jack Crawford before going down at the end of the Lions’ first full week of spring practice. Friends and family were initially hopeful that the rising junior’s knee injury wasn’t as serious as his last one, but an MRI revealed that he would require surgery and another lengthy rehab. Massaro will return for the 2012 season with senior eligibility but would almost certainly be granted a medical hardship waiver to play in 2013, should he decide to go that route. Without Massaro, Penn State still has three defensive ends with significant experience in Crawford, Eric Latimore and Sean Stanley. Both Crawford and Latimore have battled injuries, however, with Crawford sitting out the spring to recover from surgery on his foot. Stanley saw time as a true freshman in 2009 but had his snaps limited in 2010 after returning from a suspension. A pair of freshmen who redshirted in 2010 – Kyle Baublitz and C.J. Olaniyan – are also expected to be in the mix, and should get increased reps this spring with Crawford and Massa-

ro out. Other injury woes Penn State’s other injury of note is wide receiver Curtis Drake, who is again experiencing problems with his left leg and is out for at least the rest of spring ball. Drake required surgery last August after breaking his left leg in preseason practice and sat out the 2010 season, using an available redshirt. His status for the 2011 season remains up in the air. If he is able to return, the Philadelphia native is projected to share slot receiver duties with Devon Smith. Early commitments Since spring practice began on March 19, the Lions have picked up their first four verbal commitments for the Class of 2012. Offensive lineman Anthony Stanko (Warren, Ohio), linebacker Camren Williams (West Roxbury, Mass.), defensive lineman Brent Wilkerson (Hyattsville, Md.) and tight end Jesse James (McKeesport) have all pledged to Penn State, according to multiple recruiting services. Penn State hosted a number of high school juniors this past weekend, including Wyoming Valley West standout Eugene Lewis, who has received a scholarship offer from the Lions.

well, up front in that position.” After a brief offensive surge by Hazleton Area, Hromisin once again worked the left side of the penalty area. This time she was tripped and converted an ensuing penalty kick for a 2-0 lead at the 26-minute mark. Both offenses then went cold in the 35-degree temperature. Hazleton Area did have some chances in the second half as Christie Kaschak, Krista Leitner, Maria Notaro and Nicole Semenza made some inroads against the Valley West defense. None could finish their chances, something that could be a problem early. The Cougars graduated two All-WVC players who combined for 36 goals and 26 assists in 2010. “We played a lot better in the second half,” Hazleton Area coach Dan Matriccino said, “but we still have no offense.

Run for NFL star apparently nearing end The Associated Press

Chad Ochocinco played in a practice game with Sporting Kansas City MLS soccer team, but he’s likely to be cut by the team.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — When it comes to soccer, Chad Ochocinco looks like a football player. The six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver seemed willing but unpolished during a practice game Monday, the fifth day of his tryout with Sporting Kansas City of Major League Soccer. He will meet with coach Peter Vermes today and neither man sounded optimistic that his hope of playing professionally would go much furtherthanMonday’sreservegameagainstthe Kansas City Brass, a local development team. It was his first organized soccer outing since the 10th grade. “It’s been a dream come true for me to be on the pitch, man, with so many of these guys who areeliteathletesatthetopoftheirgame,”Ochocinco said. “I enjoyed it.” With the NFL in a lockout and probably headed for litigation, the Cincinnati Bengals star has said he would not mind just being a practice

player for Sporting Kansas City, which would help him stay in shape until football owners and players resolve their differences. “He and I will finally chat tomorrow and kind of talk about some ideas that we have,” Vermes said. “As I said before, long shot for him to make our roster. It still remains to be the same thing.” Ochocinco lined up as an outside midfielder and was the tallest man on the pitch. He may also have been the fastest, but had trouble keeping up with men who’ve played soccer all their life. In one instance, there was a misplayed ball at the top of the box and he let a defender get there before him. On another, he kicked the ball out of bounds. His “light touch,” the ability to deaden the ball with the inside of his foot, was obviously not as good as that of the pros. “I’ve been away from the game since I was a little kid,” he said. “I’m just having fun. The skill set is not there like it should be. All I can do out here on the pitch is probably just run fast. Other than that, I just enjoyed it.”

DUNEDIN, Fla. — Kyle Drabek struck out five and allowed five hits over five innings in a matchup of sons of former All-Stars, but Boston rallied for a 3-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday in a game shortened by rain. Tony Pena Jr., son of former major league catcher and current Yankees bench coach, started for Boston in place of John Lackey, who remained in Fort Myers because of the threat of rain. Play was stopped for 21 minutes after the fifth inning, and the game was called after the Red Sox batted in the top of the eighth. Pena gave up one run and two doubles to Aaron Hill over three innings. Jeremy Hazelbaker hit a two-run homer in the seventh for Boston. Drabek is the son of 1990 NL Cy Young winner Doug Drabek. Orioles 14, Tigers 9 SARASOTA, Fla. — Luke Scott homered twice off Max Scherzer and drove in seven runs to carry Baltimore past Detroit. Scott hit an opposite-field, grand slam to left in the first inning and added a three-run shot to right in the second. He came in with a .185 batting average, two homers and six RBIs. Marlins 4, Cardinals 1 JUPITER, Fla. — Ricky Nolasco pitched six strong innings and Florida had a fourrun third inning. Nolasco, who earned his first win of the spring in only his fourth appearance, retired 15 consecutive batters during one stretch before Ryan Theriot’s single in the sixth. Nolasco gave up only two hits while striking out three. Phillies 7, Astros 6 CLEARWATER, Fla. — Ben Francisco hit a three-run homer to help the Phillies beat Houston before boarding a plane to Philadelphia. The Phillies gave most of their regulars the day off against the team they will face on opening day on Friday. Former major leaguer Nate Bump, in minor league camp with the Phillies, held Houston to one run on eight hits in five innings. Houston right-hander Bud Norris, who is not scheduled to pitch in Philadelphia, gave up seven runs on six hits while walking four and striking out two in five innings. Placido Polanco played for the second time in three days.

his assault on the single-season home run record in 1998 — a mark that Bonds later broke. “He mentioned that other players do it and that’s how they got ahead, that’s how they achieved,” Bell said. Dressed in a dark blue suit, Bonds alternately watched Bell on the stand, scribbled notes and whispered to one of his defense attorneys, Allen Ruby, as she testified. Bell, wearing a gray pantsuit and white shirt, said she and Bonds met briefly on July 3, 1994, and attended a barbecue the next day. From there, they shared a romantic relationship that continued even after Bonds married another woman in 1999. Bell said that Bonds’ sexual performance declined in the later years of their relationship. She said that his testicles changed shape and shrank. She also testified that Bonds grew — and shaved — chest hair and developed acne on his back. A visibly uncomfortable Bell testified that Bonds’ behavior also changed over time. “He was increasingly aggressive, irritable, agitated and very impatient,” she said. Bell became emotional as she

Out with an elbow injury the last two weeks, Polanco went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored.

Twins 4, Pirates 3 FORT MYERS, Fla. — Justin Morneau capped his abbreviated spring action by getting a hit and Minnesota beat Pittsburgh to wrap up exhibition play. Morneau, who missed the first half of spring training while recovering from a concussion that kept him out for the final three months of last season, finished the spring hitting .192 with one RBI. Royals 10, Brewers (ss) 0 SURPRISE, Ariz. — Kila Ka’aihue hit a three-run homer, Kyle Davies struck out six in six innings and Kansas City won its fifth straight. Alex Gordon, Alcides Escobar and Jeff Francoeur also connected for Kansas City. Ka’aihue’s drive with Melky Cabrera and Billy Butler aboard in the fifth was his seventh of the spring. Indians 4, Cubs 3 GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Chicago’s Carlos Zambrano kept his composure despite some shoddy fielding behind him in his final spring tuneup. Chicago scored twice in the ninth off closer Chris Perez, who left after it looked as if he became ill. Vinnie Pestano hit a batter, then got the final out. Reds 9, White Sox 1 GLENDALE, Ariz. — Mike Leake pitched into the sixth inning, Drew Stubbs hit a three-run homer and Cincinnati beat Chicago. Leake allowed one run and six hits in 5 2-3 innings, bouncing back from a terrible showing last Tuesday when he gave up seven runs in 2 1-3 innings against the Oakland Athletics. Brewers (ss) 5, Padres 4 PHOENIX — Ryan Braun hit a pair of home runs and Rickie Weeks also connected to lead a Milwaukee split-squad. Mariners 7, Rockies 6 PEORIA, Ariz. —— Jason Vargas, Seattle’s No. 2 starter, gave up five runs and 11 hits in five innings, before the Mariners rallied with two runs in the bottom of the ninth. Rangers 6, Diamondbacks 4 SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Daniel Hudson didn’t allow a run in 4 2-3 innings and Russell Branyan hit his fifth home run of the spring, but Texas rallied for four runs off reliever Juan Gutierrez in the ninth. testified that Bonds verbally abused her starting in 1999, saying that — in addition to threatening to decapitate her — Bonds said “he would cut out my breast implants because he paid for them.” The second half of the BondsBell relationship was the same period when Bonds noticeably bulked up and started posting unprecedented power numbers for the Giants. The seven-time NL MVP hit a season-record 73 homers in 2001 en route to a career total of 762 by the time of his last season in 2007, not long before he was indicted for his grand jury testimony. In anticipation of defense attempts to portray Bell as a gold digger, Nedrow asked Bell about an interview and photograph shoot she did with Playboy that appeared in 2007. She posed nude and discussed Bonds sexual performance in the magazine. “I was trying to put my life together,” she testified. “Maybe it wasn’t the best decision.” Bell testified that Playboy agreed to pay her $100,000, but sent the money to her agent, David Hans Schmidt. Schmidt committed suicide in 2007 while under investigation for allegedly attempting to extort the actor Tom Cruise and Bell said she saw little of the Playboy payment — “about $17,000 or $18,000.”

Rob Wingert, Holy Redeemer: The junior returns to display his solid skills that helped Holy Redeemer reach last season’s success. The team was undefeated with him setting the offense all year.

crowned district champions the last four years running. With a large number of returning players, the Trojans have a good chance of being a factor this season. Wyoming Valley West: Wyoming Valley West graduated two starting seniors last year and will look to perform consistently with a young team. If the returning players are able to develop team chemistry early in the season, the Spartans have a chance to win some games. Top Players Andrew McLane, Abington Heights: The senior is one of several returning players for the Comets this season. A solid outside hitter, McLane also provides leadership for the Comets, who have high expectations this season. Michael Shmakov, Coughlin: The senior had a great season in 2010, helping the Crusaders pull upsets and advance to the district title game. One of the most feared hitters in the league, his experience will benefit the team. Pete Alexis, Holy Redeemer: The 6foot-11 senior had a team-high 200 kills in the league last season.

NFL

Players make court statements By JON KRAWCZYNSKI AP Sports Writer

MINNEAPOLIS — NFL players are defending their decision to disband the union, saying employers cannot force workers to unionize, and dissolution is “not akin to turning off a light switch.” The players made the statements Monday in a court document filed in response to the NFL’s assertion decertification was “a sham.” “It is established law that a union can renounce collective bargaining to enable its workers to protect themselves from antitrust violations,” lawyers for the players wrote in the filing. Lawyers for Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees and six other NFL players are asking a federal judge to halt a lockout im-

posed by owners, saying an injunction is needed to “stop the irreparable harm being inflicted today.” A hearing on the issue is scheduled for April 6 in St. Paul, Minn. The players say that prior court decisions have made it clear the right of workers not to unionize is absolute. The players disclaimed their union, gave up the right to strike, to collectively bargain and to have union representation. “The players sacrificed these labor law rights for one reason: to gain the ability to assert antitrust claims against anticompetitive restrictions imposed by defendants,” lawyers for the players argued on Monday. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said, “There are no surprises or

arguments we did not expect. The union’s lawyers still fail to come to terms with the jurisdictional principles that bar an injunction in this case.” Last week, the NFL wrote in response to the lawsuit to ask that the lockout be kept in place, accusing the players of trying to manipulate the law with what the league deems a baseless antitrust claim. The NFL also argues that any legal decision on the lockout should wait until the National Labor Relations Board rules on an unfair labor practice charge against the now-dissolved players’ union. The players argued that the NLRB proceedings could take years, thus there is no basis for the court to wait to tackle the issue.

The “claim that it was bad faith for the NFLPA to renounce its union status is absurd,” the court document said. It added that the NFLPA was re-formed as a union because of a court settlement, and that it existed as a union for nearly 20 years, “with renunciation occurring only after two years of fruitless collective bargaining.” U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson is scheduled to hear arguments on the injunction next week. The current players say they can’t afford to wait for the NLRB to conclude its investigation and issue a ruling. The lockout has shutdown free agency, prevented player movement and kept players from working out at team facilities.

Anthony scores 39 in Knicks’ OT win The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Carmelo Anthony scored 39 points, his best effort since coming to New York, and the Knicks pulled out a 113-106 overtime victory over the Orlando Magic on Monday night to snap a six-game losing streak. Hours after saying the game was “almost a must win” for the Knicks, Anthony added 10 rebounds, and the Knicks got some help when Dwight Howard fouled out in the extra session, then picked up his NBA-leading 17th technical foul. Amare Stoudemire had 20 points for the Knicks, who won for just the second time in 11 games and inched closer to their first playoff berth since 2004. Howard rebounded from a quiet first half to finish with 29 points and 18 rebounds, but Orlando didn’t score after he picked up his sixth foul. Bobcats 87, Bucks 86 CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Gerald Henderson scored the final seven points, including the go-ahead jumper with 22 seconds left, and the short-handed Charlotte Bobcats staged an unlikely comeback to beat the mistake-prone Milwaukee Bucks. Starting with no available centers before losing their top two point guards to injuries, the Bobcats remained in playoff contention after Brandon Jennings missed two layups and a 3-pointer in the final 15 seconds that would have put the Bucks ahead. Stephen Jackson scored 18 points for the Bobcats, who held Milwaukee scoreless over the

final 3:52. Jennings and Andrew Bogut had 26 points apiece for the Bucks, who lost their second straight and continued an alarming trend of blowing fourthquarter leads.

76ers 97, Bulls 85 CHICAGO — Thaddeus Young scored 21 points and the Philadelphia 76ers built a 23point lead and held on, beating the Chicago Bulls and ending their 14-game home winning streak. Chicago, losing for only the second time in its last 14 games overall, got 31 points from Derrick Rose, who also had 10 turnovers. The Bulls still own the best record in the East, leading by two games over the Celtics and Heat. Boston lost to Indiana on Monday night and Miami was idle. Wizards 100, Jazz 95 SALT LAKE CITY — Rookie John Wall scored 28 points and Jordan Crawford hit a key shot at the end of regulation then made two steals in overtime to lead the Washington Wizards to only their second road win. Crawford finished with 25 points, including eight in the fourth quarter and the gametying shot with 4.4 seconds left in regulation. Maurice Evans scored seven of his 12 points in overtime for the Wizards, who were without five players because of injury. Pacers 107, Celtics 100 INDIANAPOLIS — Roy Hibbert scored 26 points as the Indiana Pacers beat the Boston Celtics and remained in sole

possession of eighth place in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Boston point guard Rajon Rondo started after missing Sunday’s game against Minnesota with a jammed finger on his right hand. Coach Doc Rivers said before the game that Rondo would not play, but Rondo scored 10 points in the first 5:10 and finished with 22 points and eight assists. Trail Blazers 100, Spurs 92 SAN ANTONIO — Andre Miller scored 26 points and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the slumping and banged-up San Antonio Spurs as Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan sat out with injuries. The Blazers beat the NBA’s winningest team for the second

time in three days, this time with four San Antonio starters sidelined. The Spurs hope some will be healthy Thursday against Boston. NHL Blackhawks 3, Red Wings 2 DETROIT — Marian Hossa scored on a power play 51 seconds into overtime, lifting the Chicago Blackhawks to a win over the Detroit Red Wings. Henrik Zetterberg was called for hooking Patrick Kane with 3.7 seconds left, putting Chicago on the power play to begin the extra session. The Blackhawks took advantage on Hossa’s shot from the left circle — his first goal against Detroit as an ex-Red Wing — off a pass from Kane.

DAYTON, Ohio — The wait was certainly worth it for Notre Dame. Skylar Diggins scored 24 points and the second-seeded Fighting Irish made up for 28 years of beatings at the hands of Tennessee, upsetting the top-seeded Lady Vols 73-59 Monday night to earn a spot in the Final Four. The Fighting Irish (30-7) came in 0-20 all-time against the Lady Vols. But the operative number on this night was 3-0 — Notre Dame’s record in regional championship games. The Irish are headed to the Final Four for the first time since 2001, when they won the national championship. Natalie Novosel added 17 points and Becca Bruszewski — who didn’t practice Sunday and was listed as questionable to even play with a knee injury — had 13 for the Fighting Irish. Brittany Mallory chipped in with 10. Notre Dame advanced to play the winner of tonight’s game between top-ranked Connecticut (35-1) and secondseeded Duke (32-3). Taber Spani and Shekinna Stricklen had 13 points for the Lady Vols (34-3). Glory Johnson added 12. “I’m so excited, I’m out of breath,” said Diggins, selected as the regional’s most outstanding player. It was a watershed win after years of losing — sometimes close, usually not so close — to mighty Tennessee. The day before the game, Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw and her players were clearly upset to be

reminded about their long drought against the Lady Vols. It was also another disappointing end for the Lady Vols, who are accustomed to muscling their way into the national title picture under coach Pat Summitt. Freshman Meighan Simmons, their leading scorer at 13.8 points a game, was saddled with foul trouble and was scoreless until the waning minutes, finishing with two points. Senior Angie Bjorklund, the program’s all-time 3-point shooter and this season’s fourth-leading scorer at 11 points a game, didn’t score in the semifinal win over Ohio State and had only had one point against Notre Dame. Stanford 83, Gonzaga 60 SPOKANE, Wash. — Nnemkadi Ogwumike dominated the inside with 23 points and 11 rebounds, sister Chiney chipped in with 18 points, and Stanford is headed back to its fourth straight Final Four after the top-seeded Cardinal ended the surprising run of Gonzaga in the Spokane Regional final. There was no stopping the dynamic Stanford (33-2) duo, who scored seemingly every way around the basket. Whether grabbing offensive rebounds and scoring on putbacks or powering through the arms of the Bulldogs’ defense, the Ogwumikes were not going to be slowed. It didn’t help that Gonzaga (31-5) started the second half missing 11 of 12 shots and saw Stanford’s lead balloon to 21. Gonzaga got no close than 18.

Checking up on home prices Home prices in some of the nation’s largest cities have fallen to their lowest levels since the housing bubble ended in 2006 and 2007. The Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller index of home prices is expected to bring more bad news. Home prices in 20 major cities likely fell 0.4 percent in January from December, according to FactSet. The housing industry has been hurt by high unemployment and uncertainty over home prices. That has kept potential buyers from making purchases.

Americans are feeling more anxious about the economy due to high gas prices, unrest in the Middle East and North Africa and the nuclear crisis in Japan. That’s why economists predict the Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence Index fell to 65.4 in March, down from 70.4 in February. Consumer confidence had risen for the past five straight months. But the events around the world have made consumers wary.

Harry & David files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Fruit basket and gift seller Harry & David filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Monday, brought down by a weak economy and a proliferation of competitors. The Medford, Ore., company, with a store at The Crossings Premium Outlets in Tannersville, agreed with a majority of its senior creditors on a reorganization plan that will eliminate substantial debt and provide financing to restructure its balance sheet, according to court documents. Harry & David Holdings Inc., which grew out of an orchard business about a century ago, has been struggling as businesses slashed corporate gift budgets and consumers cut spending in the weak economy. It relies on discretionary spending that’s often the first to get cut from household and business budgets. In addition, online competitors have grown significantly. Harry & David grows or makes about 85 percent of its products, but online competitors were able to source products from cheaper places, lowering costs. Also stores like Walmart and Target have begun offering more edible gifts, increasing competition.

Twitter co-founder returns Jack Dorsey, the Twitter co-founder responsible for the messaging service’s first tweet five years ago, is returning to oversee the company’s products. Twitter is tapping into its creator’s ingenuity as it tries to build upon its popularity to make more money by selling more ads. Dorsey, Twitter’s original CEO, announced his new role Monday on his Twitter account. He says he intends to remain CEO of a mobile payments service called Square that’s located near Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters.

Website settles Beatles suit A website that posted digital copies of The Beatles music a year before they became legitimately available has agreed to pay record companies nearly $1 million to settle a lawsuit. Court records show the owner of the site BlueBeat.com agreed to pay $950,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by the music companies EMI, Capitol Records and Virgin Records America. A federal judge had previously ruled BlueBeat infringed on the labels’ copyrights when it sold high-quality versions of songs by the Fab Four and other top-name acts, including Coldplay and Lily Allen, for 25 cents apiece.

Lennar earnings Like other homebuilders, Lennar is struggling with the weak housing market. The company has delivered fewer new homes in recent quarters and its orders have fallen. Its revenue is expected to fall 10 percent to $514.6 million in the first quarter from the same period last year. But the company has cut costs and reduced sales incentives, and CEO Stuart Miller predicts 2011 will be profitable despite the tough first quarter.

WASHINGTON — More Americans signed contracts to buy homes last month, but sales were uneven across the country and not enough to signal a rebound in the housing market. Sales agreements for homes rose 2.1 percent in February to a reading of 90.8, according to the National Association of Realtors’ pending home sales index released Monday. Sales rose in every region but the Northeast.

Signings were 19.6 percent above June’s indexreading,thelowpointsincethehousingbust.Still,theindexisbelow100,which is considered a healthy level. The last time it reached that point was in April, the final month people could qualify for a federal home-buying tax credit. Contract signings are usually a good indicator of where the housing market is heading. That’s because there’s usually a one- to two-month lag between a sales contract and a completed deal.

But the Realtors group also noted “a measurable level of contract cancellations” that also occurred in February. Many buyers canceled after appraisals showed the properties were valued much lower than their initial bids. Asaleisnotfinaluntilamortgageisclosed. The pace of sales varied from region to region. Signings fell 10.9 percent in the Northeast. They rose 2.7 percent in the South, 4 percent in Midwest and 7 percent in the West.

EBay Inc. has agreed to buy GSI Commerce, a digital marketing and e-commerce company, for $2.4 billion. GSI owns Wilkes-Barre-based Pepperjam.

W-B firm part of deal By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

The King of Prussia company that purchasedlocale-commercepowerhousePepperjam in 2009 is close to being sold itself — to eBay, the owner of the world’s largest e- commerce market. San Jose, Calif.-based eBay on Monday announced it has agreed to buy GSI Commerce Inc. for $29.25 a share, or total considerationofapproximately$2.4billion.Theacquisition, which will be financed with cash and debt, is expected to close in the third quarter of 2011, according to a release on eBay’s website. The acquisition will add services to the eBay umbrella that help retailers market and distribute their wares. Steve Denton, president of GSI Media and the chief executive of the Pepperjam network, referred calls to GSI’s corporate communications office. A message left there was not immediately returned. One person who was talking about the pending sale on Monday was Kris Jones, 35, the founder of Pepperjam. Jones, of Shavertown,leftthecompanyinApril2010 to pursue other business opportunities. He said news of the sale brought a smile

to his face. “I cannot tell you how ecstatic I am that the company I founded is going to be an eBay company,” said Jones.Hesaidhe’s stillbaskingintheideathatthelittle Jones business he started in Wilkes-Barre “will eventually be in the hands of one of the most innovative and recognized technology companies of our time has me speechless.” Jones said when he put Pepperjam on the market he had a list of about five companies he hoped would be a bidder. GSI was one of them, but so too was eBay. None of the press releases issued on the sale gave any indication what would happen to the companies that fall under GSI’s corporate umbrella once a sale is finalized. Jones said he believes the local Pepperjam work force has only a bright side. He said eBay was a client of Pepperjam long before the GSI purchase and he believes the longstanding relationship will bolster the local company’s standing in the newer larger company. “I’m confident this means nothing but

good things for the region and the company 1:18 itself,” Jones said, addp.m. ing that the deal “is a timesleader.com good fit” for the companies involved. The top official of eBay seemed to agree. “CombinedwitheBayMarketplacesand PayPal, we believe GSI will enhance our position as the leading strategic global commerce partner of choice for retailers and brands of all sizes,” said John Donahoe, eBay Inc.’s president and chief executive officer, in that release. “Weintendtoleadthenextgenerationof commerce innovation. The acquisition of GSI, which offers the most comprehensive integrated suite of online commerce and interactive marketing services available, will significantly strengthen our ability to connect buyers and sellers worldwide,” Donahoe added. GSI, a digital marketing and e-commerce company, has 40 days to solicit proposals from other potential bidders, the companies said. EBay then has a right to match any superior proposal, according to the agreement. First reported at

New Amazon app store gives users more options AMAZON HAS, for the past few years, been a powerhouse of innovation. It is far more than an online bookstore. Its scope of operations runs the gamut from ondemand video to electronics (I bought my last TV from Amazon and it was a great deal), and now it’s getting into the app business. The mobile technology landscape is extremely fragmented right now – don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. There is no clear market leader; no one vendor has any advantage over another. And to complicate matters further, both Android and Windows Phone 7 operating systems will operate on multiple devices. If you’re old enough to remember the early days of personal computing, you’ll recall that, initially, you had more than just Windows and Mac. You had Commodore, Amiga and OS/2, to name just a few. Only it wasn’t just Windows. It was IBM, HP, Compaq, and anyone else who cared to build a

“PC Clone.” Only one other OS family could claim to have the flexibility that Windows did – and that was Linux and other UNIXlike operating systems. In the PC world, Windows emerged as the clear winner with the bulk of the market share. Well, in the world of smartphones, you only have two major operating systems that can run on multiple devices: Windows and Android (which is Linux.) Only Android has an advantage here. And with Amazon stepping in to distribute apps, multiple manufacturers pro-

ducing multiple models, all carrying the Android operating system, it’s beginning to seem like maybe, just maybe, things will start to shake out in favor of Google’s Open Operating System. The Amazon app store is pretty interesting. Not only is there an independent Android Developers Portal (you can actually launch apps with Amazon instead of selling them in Android’s market), but you can also “test drive” apps before installing them on your phone. This feature is fantastic and I, for one, love it. All too often I’ve downloaded an app that didn’t do what I wanted, or didn’t live up to its publicity. Now there’s a way to keep the Angry Birds app from resulting in an angry user. Scan the QR code in the center of this story with your smartphone’s code reader to go to the Amazon app store.

Spring has yet to fully spring for some area businesses due to prolonged cold temperatures and the threat of more winter weather into April. From golf courses to the companies that might landscape them, businesses are hoping that once customers see the green that lies beneath the snow piles they will begin bringing the green for their cash registers. The Irem Temple Golf Club in Dallas has plenty of white stuff on the greens. Paul Roman, the course professional, said last year they were open in mid-March. “It was our best year ever,” he said on Monday. “Today we are still snow covered and still closed.” Roman estimates it will be about two weeks before the course could open. He is hoping for lots of sun and some wind to help melt the snow and dry out the grounds so the spring cleanup can start. Also anticipating that spring cleanup is Dave Rosenko, owner of Summit Landscaping in Dallas. Many yards still have patches of snow on them, forcing a delay in what’s typically the start of his season. Rosenko said the weather has put him off two weeks from preparing his equipment for the spring yard cleanups. He hopes to have all of his equipment tuned up and ready to go for the new target date of this Friday. While those who work outside are anxiously awaiting the thaw, those who cater to outdoor buffs are, too. The cold weather has caused business at Around Town Bicycles in Wilkes-Barre to be a little slower than normal for this time of year, said shop owner Tom Jones. Jones said that usually about March 15, business starts picking up. He has had some sales from cycling enthusiasts, but “the casual cyclist has not come to visit us yet.” He said his customers say they are tired of the cold and want to move forward. Dundee Gardens Inc. in Hanover Township has been able to keep busy in this unseasonably cold late March thanks to sunshine. Store manager Mary Ellen O’Shea said if the sun is out, foot traffic is good. “The cold weather is not so bad, as long as it is not snowing or sleeting,” she said. O’Shea said people are learning they can begin their seeds at home, in a warm place. This is drawing people in to buy potting soil, vegetable plants and herbs. “There are a lot of die-hard gardeners out there,” she said. Sales of big-ticket items are on track too. O’Shea said that last weekend, four gas grills were sold and delivered as well as some patio furniture. “Better weather is around the corner,” Jones said.

Don’t write off Big Pharma

while Eli Lilly is down 2 percent. The S&P 500 is up 4 percent. But analysts say some drug companies are good long-term buys. They look cheap with a price-to-earnings ratio below that of the S&P 500, which has a P/E of 15. Many pay big dividends. So even if the stocks languish in the short term, investors should have a strong return. Damien Conover, a health care analyst at Morningstar, says these stocks are appealing based on their dividend yields or ability to develop new drugs.

The pharmaceutical industry looks like a no man’s land to many investors. Patents on drugs that protect against competition from Investing in generics are expirhealth care: ing.

Pfizer loses the patent for its key cholesterol drug Lipitor in November. Lipitor accounts for nearly $12 billion in annual revenue. Morningstar’s Conover doesn’t expect earnings growth until 2013. But investors can afford to wait. Pfizer has a P/E of nearly 9 based on its next 12 months’ earnings estimates. And it offers a 4 percent dividend yield, nearly double the average for the S&P 500.

The colder then normal temperatures will continue this week. Our current dry spell, which began last Friday, will last into tomorrow. Only scattered clouds will form this afternoon, for another beautiful day, but a sharp breeze will add a chill to the air. A storm down south tomorrow could spread a little snow across southern Pennsylvania later in the day, but probably not quite this far north. A deepening trough of low pressure could allow for snow and rain here, Thursday night, and on Friday. Several inches of snow could accumulate, especially in higher elevations. - Tom Clark

Health care epidemic By EILEEN GODIN

A

healthy society with chronic disease cut to a minimum, resulting in lower health care costs, is the thought behind Dr. Bernie Healey’s third book titled “Transforming Public Health Practice, Leadership and Management Essentials.” Healey, a professor of health care administration at King’s College, WilkesBarre, said the inspiration for writing this book was drawn from his 25 years as an epidemiologist with the Pennsylvania Department of Health in Wilkes-Barre. An

Times Leader Correspondent

epidemiologist studies health and illness factors within a population. The book focuses on improving leadership and communication from state and federal leaders of the Pennsylvania Department of Health to the public. He said important health information is not being effectively relayed to the general public where it can make a difference. The nation’s health care system is designed to treat chronic diseases once they manifest instead of preventing them, Healey said. This is a costly way to think.

“We spend $2.8 trillion on health care; 80 percent of this is spent on chronic diseases,” Healey said. “If you could eliminate the chronic diseases today, everyone in this country could have free health care.” He said a recent newspaper article stated there is a growing epidemic of type 2 diabetes among children “like we have never seen before.” This is related to children playing video games all day, eating See HEALEY, Page 3C

Overgrowth of yeast causes host of issues By JESSICA YADEGARAN Contra Costa Times

Brad Crooker’s thirties were stressful. His hectic scheduleasanactorandwaiter was reflected in his poor diet — lots of muffins, cookies, and other refined, onthe-go foods. In addition to intestinal discomfort, Crooker often found himself nauseous and fatigued. His symptoms were slowing him down. “I was forgetful. Sometimes I almost felt drunk,” re-

calls Crooker, now 56 and living in Danville, Calif. “I couldn’t function.” A chiropractor Crooker was seeing for his back told him candida was likely the culprit. Candida is a yeast microorganism that lives in the body’s intestinal tract with other bacteria,suchashealthfulprobiotics. According to experts, the problem arises when an overgrowth of candida causes an infection, and a multitude of See YEAST, Page 8C

Q: How important is the spleen if it can be removed without much consequence? — P.W., Huntsville, Ala. A: We can live without the spleen, but it does play a number of important roles. The spleen, an organ in the left upper part of your abdomen, is a filter for blood. It removes old, worn-out red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. It also produces white blood cells which, in turn, produce antibodies that can kill certain bacteria like Streptococcal pneumonia, Neisseria meningitidis and H.influenza. It contains specialized white blood cells called “phagocytes” that ingest bacteria, fungi, and viruses. In the past, removal of the spleen was a knee-jerk response to abdominal trauma, it’s now only done when there’s a large amount of bleeding due to spleen trauma and the person is unstable. Certain blood-forms of cancer, like chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) or hairy cell lymphoma can result in huge spleens that are very uncomfortable. Surgical removal of the spleen can relieve suffering in these folks, even if it has no direct bearing on the disease course itself. The greatest complication after splenectomy is infection by bacteria that gain a survival advantage in the absence of a spleen. Q: My 8 year-old grandson stutters. What causes it? Does it ever just “go away”? — M.W., Poughkeepsie, N.Y. A: Your grandson is in good company with some very talented people who stutter(ed): King George VI (described in the Oscar-nominated movie “The King’s Speech”); his Prime Minister Winston Churchill; Sir Isaac Newton; Mister Rogers; John Stossel; James Earl Jones; Mel Tillis; Charles Darwin; Marilyn Monroe; and Lewis Carroll. While not every stutterer is curable, 75 percent of children who stutter eventually outgrow it. The reason why there is no universal cure for stuttering is that there is no single cause. Stuttering is the result of genetic, developmental, neurological, psychological or environmental factors. It tends to run in families, but is not the direct fault of parents or the child. Four out of five persons affected are males. The Department of Health and Human Services reports that 1 out of every 30 children stutter. Beginning speech therapy before the age of 12 is very important in the effort to cure a young child’s stutter. That’s because after age 12, formal speech patterns are established. There are a number of treatment strategies including formal speech therapy; speech techniques like exhaling a breath to relax tense vocal cords prior to speaking; word substitution for words that won’t cause one to stutter; relaxation strategies; and deliberate slowing down of speech. The National Stuttering Association (www.nsastutter.org) and the Stuttering Foundation of America (www.stuttersfa.org) are two excellent resources to get more information.

Enough germs to beat the band in musical instruments By SHARI ROAN Los Angeles Times

The musical instruments kids play in school bands and orchestras are traveling denizens of bacteria and fungi, say the authors of a new study. Music education is great for kids, they note, but please, please wash the instruments! Researchers at Oklahoma State University bravely examined 13 instruments that belonged to a high school band. Six of the instruments had been played the previous week and seven hadn’t been played in a month. Swabs were taken of 117 different sites on the instruments, including the mouthpieces, internal chambers and even the carrying cases. The results scored high on the yuck factor. The researchers found 442 different bacteria, 58 types of mold and 19 types of yeast. Many of the bacteria were species of Staphylococcus, which can cause staph infection. Most of the bacteria can cause illness, the authors noted. Mold spores can contribute to the development of asthma. Even the instruments that had not been played recently harbored germs galore. “Furthermore, this study also found that many of these microbes are highly resistant to some or most of the antibiotics normally used in general practice, including methicillin,” the

authors wrote. The study showed that reeds and mouthpiece ends were more contaminated than bell ends, but even the midpoints of the instruments and bell ends contained plenty of toxins. Woodwinds tended to be germier than brass instruments. Even the woodwind cases were more contaminated than the brass cases. Clarinets were the filthiest in-

the wrong foods, and becoming overweight, Healey said. Type 2, formerly known as adultonset diabetes, is a condition in which the body fails to properly use insulin. “You should not get it at all, but if you are going to get type 2 diabetes it should be when you are in your 50s not at 11,” he said. “The problem with diabetes is the longer you have it the more damage it can do.” Healey said diabetes can cause complications such as blindness, amputations, and kidney disease. His book re-enforces part of President Barack Obama’s Health Care Reform targeting “population-based prevention programs that are cost effective in producing positive outcomes.” Healey believes chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes can be prevented if clear-cut information on the importance of diet and exercise reaches more who need it. “We say, ‘exercise,’ ‘eat a balance diet,’ but what exactly is that?” he said. He would like to see detailed nutritional information on what makes up a balanced meal. Exercise does not have to be a rigorous

They noted that many school band instruments are loaned to students and have been played by countless other people “whose health histories are un-

workout. It could simply entail a walk once a day, Healey said. Healey used a recent project as an example on how preventive care could save on health care costs. He recently used two hours of his own time to create an online colorectal cancer test. The test is comprised of a short anonymous question and answer session and an 11-minute video. The program was used on faculty at King’s College and employees of the City of Wilkes-Barre. Participants who scored in a certain percentile were referred for further testing. The program helped identify three people who, when tested by their doctor, were found to have the beginning stages of colorectal cancer. “Not only did my program help save three people, but it cut long-term treatment costs,” he said. “To treat this type of cancer it can cost between $300,000 to $1 million per person for treatments and testing.” This is an example of the types of proactive preventive-care programs that Healey says should be reaching the population. “You do not miss good health until you do not have it,” he said. Currently, Healey is a part-time consultant in epidemiology for the Wilkes-Barre City Department of Health. A Wilkes-Barre native, he still resides in Wilkes-Barre with his wife Kathryn. He was in the last graduating

Ethylen oxide is the only agent known to sterilize instruments effectively,” they wrote. The study was published March 14 in the journal General Dentistry.

Blood could indicate a problem with dog’s urinary tract, bladder or kidneys productive tract. The reproductive tract of a male dog consists of the testicles, the vas deferens, which carries sperm from the testicles to the urethra and then out the penis during ejaculation, and the prostate gland. The prostate gland, among other things, makes a fluid called prostatic fluid, which makes up part of the ejaculate. Bleeding from any of these structures can show up as blood from the penis. A urinalysis will help rule out blood from most of the urinary tract. If a urinalysis does not show blood, we can consider it less likely the blood is coming from Toby’s bladder, ureters or

kidneys. I say less likely because it is possible the bleeding is intermittent and thus might be missed on a single urinalysis. The only structure not likely ruled out is the urethra, because it is shared with the reproductive tract. Let’s say the blood is not from the urinary tract. Then I am putting my money on the reproductive tract as the source of the blood. This is even more likely if Toby still has his testicles. This is because un-neutered male dogs can have prostate issues. These can range from prostatic hypertrophy from

chronic testosterone stimulation to inflammation and or infection of the prostate and even cancer of the prostate. All of these conditions can cause bleeding. Palpation of Toby’s pros-

tate can reveal whether it is enlarged as it would be with prostatic hypertrophy or if it is irregular in shape, as it might be with cancer. Inflammation and/or infection of the prostate is/are usually quite painful and these dogs will express pain when their prostate is palpated. Further diagnostic steps will need to be performed in order to definitively diagnose a particular prostate

MARSHA recently noticed blood coming from her dog’s penis. Sometimes the blood shows up after urination; other times, there is only blood. The 7-year-old old boxer apparently is oblivious to any problems, as Marsha says he is in good spirits, with normal rambunctious activity and appetite. He is not urinating more often and otherwise is showing no signs of health problems. Both Marsha and her husband, Rod, have looked closely at Toby’s penis and have not seen any bleeding. Let’s assume that Marsha and Rod have ruled out a lesion that might be causing the bleeding. The source of the blood then is from farther inside. First consider that the penis contains the urethra, a tube in male dogs connected to the urinary tract. The urinary tract consists of the kidneys, the tubes leading from the kidneys called ureters, the bladder and finally the urethra. Blood from any part of this tract can show up from the penis. The other tract associated with the urethra is the re-

Readers agree: Older worker’s behavior could have multiple causes Dear Abby: My heart ached after reading the letter from “Stumped in California” (Feb. 4), who wondered what could be done about an older co-worker, “Anita,” who she said was showing “signs of dementia.” I would caution her about making judgments based on stereotypes of older workers and their health problems. Like Anita, I am in my late 60s. I am also underwater in my mortgage, which means I have no nest egg. Because my husband is unemployed, my savings have been depleted. My short-term memory is poor, and the meds I am on to

DEAR ABBY ADVICE help me function do not improve my memory. Anita may not have dementia. She may be suffering from unbearable worry and stress. I suggest putting out a hand in friendship to Anita instead of trying to diagnose her. — Feeling It Too in Richmond, Va.

marked and/or prolonged changes in mood, function and behavior should undergo thorough medical and/or psychological/psychiatric evaluation. Many treatable conditions can affect memory and concentration. The constant tearfulness observed by “Stumped” is a common symptom of depression. If Anita’s office has an Employee Assistance Plan, a supervisor or HR will know the procedure for referring her to an EAP clinician who can evaluate her and make recommendations for treatment, work-related considerations and follow-up. — Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Upstate New York Dear Abby: I am a state-licensed

hearing instrument specialist. The commonalities between the symptoms of hearing loss and dementia are many. A person with hearing loss has a tendency to withdraw — she’s more APART FROM than a PART OF. Also, if she’s having trouble remembering things she’s done before, she may not have heard the request. (How can you remember something if you have never heard it?) I encourage “Stumped” to talk to Anita about having her hearing tested. A hearing aid may be what she needs to help her perform better on the job. — Knows From Experience Dear Abby: I am 67 and work because I can’t live on Social Security.

Perhaps Anita is facing the same problem and must work. My coworkers are supportive, and we have access to a wellness program to help us. She should check with Human Resources. Anita needs support, not criticism. Do not assume all seniors suffer from dementia. — Seasoned Worker in Tucson

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your leisure moments will be magical. You will get swept up into a brilliant piece of entertainment. The pettiness and worries of daily life will disappear as you thoroughly enjoy yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There is nothing wrong with keeping score. If you didn’t, there would be no game. However, you realize that there are times when it is better to throw out the scorecard and start fresh. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Like the god your guiding planet Mercury was named for, you will make your next moves with speedy assurance, defying laws of gravity as though there were wings on your shoes. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s a competition on the horizon. You will give your best and most focused attention to preparing for this event. As you apply all you know, you will be a magnet for the new information you need to succeed. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You set the kind of goals that will challenge you but won’t be so difficult that you are likely to be overwhelmed by the enormity and seeming impossibility of the task. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You put people first and consider the feelings of others at every turn. When it’s your turn to get in the game, though, you play to win. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You thought you knew your priorities, but you will be surprised by your reaction to the day’s events. This indicates that something or someone is more important to you than you previously thought.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are curious about what is going on in the lives of others, but you are not nosy. You respect the boundaries of privacy. As you show interest in others without crossing the line, you’ll teach through your example. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You realize that there is no way to accomplish the day’s work without a fair dose of teamwork. That’s why you will downplay the “I” and give your emphasis to the “we.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will put yourself in the other person’s shoes. It’s not hard to do this, but it takes a special person to make the effort — a person who is willing to let go of his or her own egoistic needs. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s something you are trying to do despite the fact that, given your current situation, it seems highly improbable that you will succeed at the task. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You may feel like you are being picked on. Just keep in mind that sometimes the very thing you think of as rejection or bad luck is actually the luckiest thing that could happen to you. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 29). Family celebrates you. New friends enter your world over the next 10 weeks and will continue to be a source of variety and spice. Thrilling challenges arise in May. You will study a new culture or profession in April. June brings your favorite kind of distraction. Leo and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 11, 20, 4, 31 and 18.

symptoms ensue. Candida overgrowth is difficult to diagnose — a lack of significant medical studies means most Western doctors don’t recognize it as a condition,exceptwhenitappearsas a recurring yeast infection in women. Most sufferers turn to holistic healthpractitionerswhousevarious techniques,suchasmeasuringyeast levels in stool, to diagnose candida overgrowth and treat it with supplements, antifungal medications and, most important, a change in diet. Candida diets vary. But the overarching idea is that because yeast is a fermenting organism, you should eliminate foods that convert into alcohol — sugar, certain fruits — and can flourish in the gut as a yeast overgrowth, explains Elson Haas, a medical doctor and director of the Preventive Medical Center of Marin. Haas specializes in integrated medicine and is the author of seven books on health and nutrition. “In addition to excessive sugars, the overuse of antibiotics and alco-

hol has caused us to kill off some of the vital microfloral in our intestinal tracts,” he says. So, the best thing you can do is stop feeding the yeast what it thrives on and replenish with good bacteria, such as yogurt and probiotic supplements. That means bread is out, too. Haas recommends a diet that is low in sugar, high in protein and includes low-glycemic vegetables. To kill off an existing candida overgrowth, he uses prescription medications, such as fluconazole, an antifungal,andnaturalremediessuchas castor bean oil extract and caprylic acid. Crooker used some of those remedies. He switched to a diet of whole foods, including vegetables, yogurt, eggs and fish. And he stopped eating bread, cheese and alcohol. It took about four months before he felt better. “I went through withdrawals and started tasting yeast in my mouth at first,” Crooker recalls. “I was starving for those foods I gave up. But eventually, I felt better. I had energy, and I could think clearly.” In some people, the toxins produced by the yeast overgrowth can be absorbed into the body and affect the brain’s function.

Pubali Ray Chaudhuri didn’t have that symptom, but she did have persistent intestinal bloating and discomfort whenever she ate sugar or aged cheeses. She discovered her candida overgrowth back in 2001, and found help through a naturopath who put her on a yeastfree diet and a round of nystatin, another antifungal medication. “The diet was restrictive and interfered with a lot of things, like eating out,” says Ray Chaudhuri, 38, of Newark, Calif. “It was difficult, but it worked.” She sticks to what she calls “a modified version’ of the Atkins diet, avoiding refined sugars and carbohydrates. Not everyone who treats candida overgrowth believes diet is the culprit. Holistic health practitioner Mitchell Corwin says metal toxicity, meaning dental amalgam fillings, is the biggest contributor. “If someone is complaining of symptoms associated with candida, one of the first things I do is look in their mouth,” says Corwin, who has offices in Berkeley and Pleasant Hill, Calif.“Even one filling is enough to leach mercury into the body and cause heavy metal toxicity.”
