On Tuesday night, the school board authorized Bernardi to issue formal written requests to the support staff for the pay freeze and to the teachers union for the furlough. The eight board members present unanimously supported board President Nick DeAngelo’s motion to make the requests. A support staff freeze – affecting about 130 people including custodians, secretaries and aides – would save about $118,000. And a one-day teacher furlough, held See WYOMING, Page 12A

The newlyweds paid $7 for their overnight stay. “At that time seven dollars was a lot for one evening,” Jones said. “They didn’t have two nickels to rub together, so that was a big deal,” added Jones’

WILKES-BARRE – From the time Molly Hanlon Mirabito was 12, she knew she wanted to be an attorney. She graduated from the University of Notre Dame School of Law in 1987, and the following day she was in court arguing a case.

The Forty Fort resident ran for district judge in Swoyersville in 2005 and for county judge in 2009. Mirabito admitted she was naïve in 2009 while running for judge, not utilizing mass media and asking people for help, she told The Times Leader endorsement board.

RAS LANOUF, Libya — Moammar Gadhafi’s forces hammered rebels with tanks and rockets, turning their rapid advance into a panicked retreat in an hours-long battle Tuesday. The fighting underscored the dilemma facing the U.S. and its allies in Libya: Rebels might be unable to oust Gadhafi militarily unless already contentious international airstrikes go even further in taking out his forces. Opposition fighters pleaded for strikes as they fled the hamlet of Bin Gadhafi Jawwad, where artillery shells crashed thunderously, raising plumes of smoke. No such strikes were launched during the fighting, and some rebels shouted, “Sarkozy, where are you?” — a reference to French President Nicolas Sarkozy, one of the strongest supporters of using air power against Gadhafi. Reports overnight indicated that the rebels were in flight from Brega and Ras Lanouf. The rout of the rebels Tuesday illustrated how much they rely on international air power. Only a day earlier, they had been storming westward in hopes of taking Sirte, Gadhafi’s hometown and a bastion of his support in central Libya. They See LIBYA , Page 12A

Ex-clergyman’s daughter sues him, employee Marilyn Malia suing over injuries suffered in an attack outside a bar in 2009. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – The daughter of a former Episcopal priest with a history of legal troubles has filed a lawsuit against him and one of his employees for injuries she suffered after being attacked outside an area tavern. Marilyn Malia says she suffered a fractured nose that required surgery after she was

attacked by Angela Sweet in the parking lot of the River Street Ale House on July 7, 2009. The suit, filed by attorney Barry Dyller, says Malia was punched repeatedly in the head by Sweet, who was angry that Malia had thrown a drink into the face of her father, Gregory Malia, after he intentionally bumped into her inside the bar. Both Sweet and Gregory Malia, who brandished a handgun during the altercation between Sweet and his daughter, were charged in connection with the assault.

Malia pleaded no contest in September 2010 to several counts of recklessly endangering another person. Sweet was found guilty in October 2010 of simple assault and other offenses. The lawsuit is the latest of several suits that have been filed against Gregory Malia, who gained notoriety in August 2009 after a New York Daily News published an article that detailed his escapades in New

York City bars, describing him as a “big spending, champagne swilling, club hopping priest.” Malia, who also owns New Life Home Healthcare, a pharmacy that specializes in medications for persons suffering from bleeding disorders, was suspended by the Diocese of Bethlehem after the article appeared. Malia is also being sued by Patricia Mackiewicz, a former

employee of his pharmacy who alleges he sexually harassed her. He is also a defendant in a lawsuit field by Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania, which alleges his pharmacy improperly billed for mediations provided to two New Life’s employees. In the latest suit, Marilyn Malia is seeking more than $100,000 from Sweet and Gregory Malia for assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

WA to seek loan for elementary school renovation By JANINE UNGVARSKY Times Leader Correspondent

EXETER – A “no-frills” renovation of Wyoming Area School District’s Montgomery Avenue Elementary School would cost about $2 million, and while school board members seem in agreement that the work needs to be done, there is disagreement about how to pay for it. At a meeting Tuesday night, the board approved a motion to have Superintendent Ray Bernardi submit a formal application to the U.S. Department of Agriculture for a $2 million capital loan to be used for renovations at the elementary school. The loan has a fixed interest rate of 4.35 percent and a 40-year term. The length of the loan didn’t sit well with board member Frank Casarella. “I don’t like the number of years on this.

HANOVER TWP. – Township police reported the following: • Police said Mark Mercadante, 18, of Slope Street, Warrior Run, was charged with marijuana possession during a traffic stop on the Sans Souci Parkway on Tuesday. Police said they detected an odor of marijuana inside the vehicle. A canine searched the vehicle and found marijuana, a digital scale and 31 ecstasy tablets, police alleged. Mercadante was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and a traffic violation. He was arraigned by District Judge Joseph Halesey in Hanover Township and released on $5,000 unsecured bail. • Police said they are investigating damage to classrooms discovered Monday inside the Hanover Area Memorial School on West St. Mary’s Road.

We’ll get the approval and the next thing you know, there will be five votes for this.” Casarella voted against pursuing the loan, which Bernardi said would be used on infrastructure, such as upgrades to wiring and technology cabling, the heating and ventilation system, the roof, replacing the front steps and installing tile to replace the carpeting installed during the last renovation in the late 1980s. “The building is absolutely sound, but it needs these renovations,” said Bernardi. “And there are no frills. We can’t afford frills.” Casarella also objected to a five-year extension of the transportation contract with Pace Bus, noting he hasn’t seen the contract. Bernardi said the contract specifics are still being negotiattheft and receiving stolen property.

In paperwork, prosecutors argue against how defense defines gratuity involved

Feds push no leniency for Toole

By MARK GUYDISH mguydish@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – Federal prosecutors filed paperwork Tuesday arguing against leniency in the sentencing of former Luzerne County Judge Michael Toole. At a hearing Friday in Scranton, defense attorney Frank Nocito argued that Toole – who pleaded guilty to accepting a gratuity from a lawyer – should get a lighter sentence because the value of the gratuity is less than $10,000, which would reduced the sentence under federal guidelines. Specifically, Toole accepted the use of attorney Harry Cardoni’s New Jersey beach rental house at no cost for one week in separate years, valued at more than $6,000 each week. Nocito argued

New gas severance tax proposed

only one of those weeks should count because Toole is charged only with helping the lawyer a single time. Prosecutors say Toole fixed an auto insurance arbitraToole tion case by appointing a “neutral arbitrator” chosen by Cardoni. Toole pleaded guilty in 2009. In paperwork filed Tuesday, U.S. Assistant Attorney Michael Consiglio noted sentencing guidelines explicitly say “related payments that, in essence, constitute a single gratuity ... are to be treated as a single gratuity.” Adding the value for both years is appropriate “under the plain language of this provision.”

Consiglio also argues that case law cited by Nocito applies to bribes, paid before an official act, not to gratuities, paid after the official act. Nocito had also argued that Toole used the house for only two nights each week, and that the value should be calculated on a per-day basis, dropping it to about $2,000 a year. Consiglio countered that “a review of the facts … demonstrate that each gift to the defendant was a full week at the beach house, that the defendant understood the scope of the gift and accepted it,” and that Cardoni rented only by the week, never by the day. “How much the defendant and his family actually used the home is immaterial,” Consiglio wrote. “A gift received and not fully used is still a gift and does

not diminish its value.” 11:05 Lastly, Nocito argued that Toole dea.m. timesleader.com serves leniency because he has undergone “extraordinary rehabilitation” from alcohol and gambling addictions after his conviction. Consiglio called Toole’s recovery “laudable,” but “not extraordinary.” Toole’s recovery and determination in landing a low-level job so he could support his family after leaving the bench “is what is expected of an adult responsible for a household,” Consiglio added. If the judge rejects Nocito’s arguments, Toole faces 27-33 months in jail under guidelines. Sentencing is set for April 6. First reported at

Businesses by Eighth Street Bridge say new span’s opening welcome

Co-sponsor state Sen. Yudichak says measure takes different approach than bill last year. By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

State Sen. John Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township, is co-sponsoring a new natural gas severance tax bill in the state Senate. Yudichak said the bill, introduced Tuesday as Senate Bill 905, takes a different approach from the tax the state Senate failed to pass in 2010. “The percentages are different, the distribution is different, and I think the most important part of our proposal is that it is a bipartisan proposal,” Yudichak said from the Capitol in Harrisburg. The bill is co-sponsored by Sen. Edwin Erickson, RDelaware County, and Yudichak said it has at least three Republican supporters. It proposes an initial tax of 2 percent on the gross value of gas severed at the well head, increasing to 5 percent once the well has been in production for three years, and dropping back to 2 percent then zero as a well’s production declines below certain thresholds. Proceeds would be distributed equally among local governments in areas affected by gas drilling; an environmental stewardship fund; and a fund for waYudichak said ter supply, wastethe bill would water treatment and other water-reprovide relief lated projects. to communiWells producing ties impacted less than 60 milby gas drilling lion cubic feet of gas per day would through both be exempt from the direct reimtax, which would bursement to take effect July 1 if passed. municipalities Yudichak said and envithe bill would provide relief to comronmental munities impacted stewardship by gas drilling grants. through both direct reimbursement to municipalities and environmental stewardship grants.

WYOMING – Gina’s Pizza & Pasta has been in business for 57 years with a clear view of the Eighth Street Bridge. And with the opening of the brandnew, $23 million span on Tuesday, business may return to normal – or even improve. The 111-year-old Eighth Street Bridge closed Tuesday afternoon and the new concrete bridge – located adjacent to the old steel structure – opened for traffic. Gil Dominick Jr. of Gina’s took time to talk about the trials and tribulations of operating a business near the bridge. “This project hasn’t exactly helped our business,” Dominick said, taking time from making pizza shells while others made pasta. “But I guess when it’s all said and done the new bridge should benefit us.”

COURT PETITION

Visitation rights with Skrep kids pursued

Estranged wife of jailed former commissioner seeks partial custody of couple’s 3 children. By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – The estranged wife of imprisoned former Luzerne County Commissioner Greg Skrepenak has filed a petition seeking partial custody of the couple’s three children. Carrie Skrepenak, 42, filed a petition in county court on Monday that asks a judge to restore her visitation rights with the children, who currently are in the custody of their paternal grandparents, Gregory and Barbara Skrepenak of Dallas. In her petition, filed by attorney Fred Howe, Carrie Skrepenak says the children, ages 16, 14 and 12, were transferred to the custody of the Skrepenaks after their father began serving a two-year Greg Skrepenak federal prison sentence on a corruption charge. Carrie Skrepenak, who has a history of substance abuse, has served prison time for several arrests and probation violations related to those arrests. Most recently she was charged on Sept. 7 with possession of a controlled substance after police found her on the back porch of a city home with an empty packet of heroin. Skrepenak was released from prison in January. Since then she says she has asked Gregory and Barbara Skrepenak to abide by a 2009 custody order that gave her custody on alternating weekends and certain holidays. The couple has refused her request to the detriment of the children, the petition says. Contacted Tuesday, Howe said Carrie Skrepenak has only the best interest of her children at heart. He questioned why the custody petition was deemed newsworthy. “It is a private, civil custody matter. News reports can only further serve to harm the children,” Howe said. “I am proud of Carrie and her efforts at recovery and determination to regain a normal and loving relationship with her children.” The petition says the junior Skrepenak, who is currently incarcerated in a federal prison in West Virginia, supports Carrie Skrepenak’s efforts to restore visitation with the children. Attorney Peter Moses, who represented the junior Skrepenak in his criminal case, said he could not confirm nor deny that as he has not yet spoken to him regarding the custody matter. Reached at her home, Barbara Skrepenak declined to comment on the case.

Police: 2 Lackawanna County women high on bath salts endangered children Times Leader Staff

WILKES-BARRE – Two women under the influence of bath salts were arrested on charges they endangered two children in a vehicle on Monday, city police said. Police charged Donna M. Zilla, 40, of Dunmore, with two counts each of endangering the welfare of children and reckless endangerment, and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. Michele M. Pace, 39, of Throop, was charged with two counts of reckless endangerment and one count each of driving under the influence, reckless driving and failing to have children restrained in safety seats. Zilla and Pace were arraigned Monday night and jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $35,000 and $5,000 bail, respectively.

According to the criminal complaints: A city police detective spotted a Chevrolet traveling aggressively in the area of Scott and Kidder streets just after11a.m. Zilla Monday. The detective followed the vehicle, driven by Pace, to George Avenue. Pace sped away, nearly striking a utility pole and other vehicles before being boxed in a driveway by the detecPace tive and another officer, the complaint says. Police said in the complaint that two

children, a 1-year-old and a 2-year-old, were inside the vehicle and not secured to child safety seats. Pace and Zilla “appeared highly euphoric, aggressive and agitated. They were unable to control simple body movements, and when answering questions, both were flailing and talking quickly,” according to the complaint. Police alleged Pace and Zilla admitted to snorting bath salts in the morning. The two children were taken into protective custody, police said. The state House of Representatives is scheduled to vote April 4 to ban the sale and possession of bath salts before the legislation is moved to the state Senate. Preliminary hearings for the two women are scheduled on April 5 in WilkesBarre Central Court.

SEN. CASEY URGES A N AT I O N A L B A N U.S. Senator Bob Casey, D-Scranton, on Tuesday urged the Drug Enforcement Administration to immediately ban chemicals used to manufacture the designer drug bath salts. “A series of recent crimes and violent attacks by individuals using bath salts have shown that these drugs pose an imminent threat to public safety,” Casey wrote in a letter to DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart. DEA recently issued a temporary ban on the possession and sale of synthetic marijuana, known as K2 and Spice. Casey urged the DEA to issue a similar ban on bath salts while chemists study the effects of the drug.

this time, Dominick said. And the project has taken parking away from the front of a small strip mall owned by Dominick located near the bridge. “They took my property and I lost a lot of parking for my tenants,” Dominick said. “We have parking in the rear of the stores, but several tenants left. I’m starting to get a few of the stores rented, but it’s been difficult.” Dominick’s son, Gil III, was working the store Tuesday morning. He said the bridge project hasn’t helped business, but he said that’s to be expected. “I think a lot of people were afraid to use the old bridge because they thought it wasn’t safe,” he said. “I think the new bridge will increase traffic passing by and that should help our business.” Dominick, 42, said he was glad that PennDOT kept the old bridge open while the new one was being built. He said if the old bridge was closed during the 2 ½-year project, the effects could

River Street. “I think it will be much easier for traffic to flow,” he said. “All in all, the project went much smoother than anyone anticipated.” The original bridge was closed four times for repairs in the past: Two years between 1938 and 1940 to repair damage caused by mine subsidence and again in the late 1940s to replace the surface. In 1947 the bridge was closed to replace the surface with a steel grate. Over the years, the grate became dangerously slippery when wet and the bridge was closed from April to October in 1985 to pave the surface and reinforce the piers. Construction of the new 10section bridge began in the fall of 2008. It provides wider lanes and shoulders as well as sidewalks. Improvements made to the intersections at either end of the bridge at River Road in Jenkins Township and Wyoming Borough include turning lanes, signals, drainage and more. Contractor for the project is Nyleve Construction of Bethlehem. PennDOT said the old bridge will be demolished this spring.

Judge halts law enactment Wisconsin judge has ruled that A there should be no further imple-

Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi said Tuesday that her earlier restraining order saying the law shouldn’t be enacted had either been ignored or misinterpreted. Sumi stopped short of saying the law was not already in effect. She says she will take more testimony on that issue. The Legislative Reference Bureau posted the law on a legislative website Friday, leading Gov. Scott Walker’s administration to declare the law was in effect. Sumi revised her original March temporary restraining order blocking the secretary of state from publishing the law, which is typically the last step before it becomes effective.

Pirate jail is opened A new maximum-security prison opened in northern Somalia on Tuesday, raising hopes that it can help relieve the burden on other nations affected by piracy that are reluctant to imprison pirates. Most suspected pirates captured by international warships are released because other nations don’t want to jail them, and most Somali prisons and courts are not up to international standards. There have been notable exceptions: A U.S. court this month sentenced five men convicted of piracy to life in prison. JERUSALEM

Shaky time for peace talks Israel is considering annexing major West Bank settlement blocs if the Palestinians unilaterally seek world recognition of a state, an Israeli official said Tuesday — moves that would deal a grave blow to prospects for negotiating a peace deal between the two sides. Israel has refrained from taking such a diplomatically explosive step for four decades. The fact that it is considering doing so reflects how seriously it is concerned by the Palestinian campaign to win international recognition of a state in the absence of peacemaking. The Palestinians launched that campaign after peace talks foundered over Israeli construction in West Bank settlements. WASHINGTON

Key terror suspect nabbed A senior Indonesian al-Qaida operative wanted in the 2002 Bali bombings has been arrested in Pakistan, a rare high-profile capture in the war on terror that could provide valuable intelligence about the organization and possible future plots. Umar Patek, a suspected member of the al-Qaida-linked militant group Jemaah Islamiyah, was arrested earlier this year in Pakistan, foreign intelligence sources said Tuesday. It’s not clear if Pakistan stumbled on Patek or his capture was the result of an intelligence tip. Details about what he was doing in Pakistan also remain murky, raising questions about whether he was there to plan an attack with al-Qaida’s top operational leaders as the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 200l looms over the U.S. Patek, 40, a Javanese Arabic man, is well-known to intelligence agencies across the world. He’s believed to have served as the group’s deputy field commander in the nightclub bombings that left 202 people dead, many of them foreigners.

Plant crippled by earthquake and tsunami has been spilling radiation into the environment

Officials admit safeguards lacking By MARI YAMAGUCHI and YURI KAGEYAMA Associated Press

Yeah, just send me two of everything

A

TOKYO — Japan’s government admitted that its safeguards were insufficient to protect a nuclear plant against the earthquake and tsunami that crippled the facility and caused it to spew radiation, and vowed to overhaul safety standards. The struggle to contain radiation at the Fukushima Dai-ichi complex has unfolded with near-constant missteps — the latest involving three workers drenched with water feared to be contaminated. Safety officials said today that the three were fine and did not register high radiation levels, but the incident fed criticism of the utility that owns the plant as well as scrutiny of Japan’s preparedness for nuclear

crises. The March 11 tsunami that slammed into Japan’s northeast, wiping out towns and killing thousands of people, knocked out power and backup systems at the coastal nuclear power plant. More than 11,000 bodies have been recovered, but officials say the final death toll is expected to exceed 18,000. Hundreds of thousands of people remain homeless, their homes and livelihoods destroyed. Damage could total $310 billion — the most expensive natural disaster on record. “Our preparedness was not sufficient,” Chief Cabinet secretary Yukio Edano said Tuesday. “When the current crisis is over, we must examine the accident closely and thoroughly review” the safety standards.

Suit against Wal-Mart argued in high court

An Associated Press investigation found that Tokyo Electric Power Co. officials had dismissed scientific evidence and geological history that indicated that a massive earthquake — and subsequent tsunami — was far more likely than they believed. That left the complex with nowhere near enough protection against the tsunami. The mission to stabilize the power plant has been fraught with setbacks. The plant has been leaking radiation that has made its way into vegetables, raw milk and tap water as far away as Tokyo. Residents within 12 miles of the plant have been ordered to leave and some nations have banned the imports of food products from the Fukushima region.

By JAMES OLIPHANT Tribune Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON — A skeptical Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday in the largest employment discrimination case in history, suggesting that the massive, decade-old class-action suit against Wal-Mart Stores Inc. may have run aground at what could be its final stop. The suit accuses the retailer of systematically discriminating against potentially millions of its employees in terms of pay and promotion and has been closely watched both by workplace advocates and corporate America. A victory for the plaintiffs could unleash a flood of similar suits that seek to prove discrimination through the broader use of statistical models rather than direct evidence, and a win for Wal-Mart would be greeted with relief by large employers. The issue involves whether the plaintiffs can sue together as a sprawling class — all women who worked for the chain since 1998 — or whether their discrimination claims are too diverse to be banded together in a single action. Both a trial court and the U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco green-lighted the case. The plaintiffs maintain that individual suits against WalMart would be too costly and difficult to pursue. But although the more conservative-leaning justices on the high court seemed the most hostile to the case, nearly all its members appeared troubled by aspects of the litigation.

Syria’s leader fires Cabinet, offers concessions amid unrest Security forces monitor and control nearly every aspect of society and secret police snuff out opposition. By ZEINA KARAM Associated Press

DAMASCUS, Syria — Facing an extraordinary wave of popular dissent, Syrian President Bashar Assad fired his Cabinet on Tuesday and promised to end widely despised emergency laws — concessions unlikely to appease protesters demanding sweeping reforms in one of the most hard-line nations in the Middle East. The overtures, while largely symbolic, are a moment of rare compromise in the Assad family’s 40 years of iron-fisted rule. Security forces monitor and control nearly every aspect of society in Syria, and the feared secret police crush even the smallest rumblings of opposition. Draconian laws have all but eradicated civil liberties and political freedoms. But with the protests that erupted in Syria on March 18, thousands of Syrians appear to have broken through a barrier of fear in this tightly controlled nation of 23

million. “Syria stands at a crossroads,” said Aktham Nuaisse, a leading human rights activist. “Either the president takes immediate, drastic reform measures, or the country descends into one of several ugly scenarios. If he is willing to lead Syria into a real democratic transformation, he will be met halfway by the Syrian people,” Nuaisse said. Elsewhere in the Mideast Tuesday: • In Bahrain, the Parliament accepts resignations of 11 lawmakers from the Shiite opposition. The resignations were submitted last month over the deadly crackdown on anti-government protesters in the Sunni-ruled island nation with a Shiite majority. • In Egypt, members of the ultraconservative Muslim Salafi sect clash with villagers south of Cairo over demands that a liquor store and coffee shops be closed. One villager is dead and eight injured in the clash that erupted late Monday. Also, dozens of Salafis protest in Cairo, accusing the church of abducting a Coptic priest’s wife who some believe converted to Islam and is being held against her will. • In Jordan, King Abdullah II con-

demns violence and expresses support for dialogue and reform in his first public comments on violence at a pro-democracy protest Friday, when one person was killed. In Syria, the coming days will be key to determining whether Assad’s concessions will quiet the protest movement, which began after security forces arrested several teenagers who scrawled anti-government graffiti on a wall in the impoverished city of Daraa in the south. The protests spread to other provinces and the government cracked down, killing more than 60 people since March 18, according to Human Rights Watch.

BAGHDAD — Wearing military uniforms over explosives belts, gunmen held a local Iraqi government center hostage Tuesday in a grisly siege that ended with the deaths of at least 56 people, including three councilmen who were executed with gunshots to the head. The five-hour standoff in Tikrit, former dictator Saddam Hussein’s home town, ended only when the attackers blew themselves up in one of the bloodiest days in Iraq this year.

Speaking in a muted voice, Salahuddin Governor Ahmed Abdullah called the attack “a tragic incident carried out by ruthless terrorists.” Iraqi officials were quick to blame al-Qaida in Iraq for the slaughter, noting that executions and suicide bombers are hallmarks of the extremist group. A senior intelligence official in Baghdad likened the attack to al-Qaida’s horrifying hostage raid last fall on a Catholic church in Baghdad that left 68 dead and stunned the nation. Tuesday’s attack left 56 victims dead and 98 wounded, including government workers, security forces and bystanders, said Salahuddin health director Dr. Raied Ibrahim. Many died in the volleys of gunfire and explosions. Among the dead were councilman Abdullah Jebara, a vocal al-Qaida foe; the council’s health committee chairman, Wathiq al-Samaraie; and Iraqi journalist Sabah al-Bazi, a correspondent for Al-Arabiya satellite TV channel and a freelancer for CNN and Reuters.

Critics say legislation aimed at federal mandate would hurt Pennsylvanians, not help them

Pa. effort to block law decried By STEVE MOCARSKY smocarsky@timesleader.com

NANTICOKE – Representatives of two unions and a health care advocacy group testified on Tuesday about proposed health insurance legislation they say would hurt Pennsylvanians and limit their health care choices. The state House Democratic Policy Committee had a hearing on health care at Luzerne County Community College at the request of state Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski, D-Wilkes-Barre, who co-chaired the hearing with Rep. Mike Sturla, chairman. Those who testified attacked House Bill 42 – the Health Care Freedom Act – introduced by Rep. Matt Baker, R-Wellsboro, and currently before the House Appropriations Committee. The bill would exempt Pennsylvanians from complying with a provision of President Barack Obama’s federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that would eventually require all Pennsylvanians to purchase health care insurance or be fined. Richard Bloomingdale, president of the Pennsylvania AFLCIO, said the bill is detrimental to working families and will “prevent strides being made by the federal government to control skyrocketing health care costs. By requiring residents to obtain health care coverage, the cost of everyone’s insurance can be controlled, and eventually those costs will be reduced,” he said. Bloomingdale cited a study that found that eliminating the mandate would reduce the number of healthy people buying in-

Athena Ford, education and implementation coordinator for the Pennsylvania Health Access Network, testified that the point of insurance is to spread the risk. “If we allow people – despite having new options for getting Tickets are $100 per person and can be purchased by calling Mike or Theresa at 639-5667. HARRISBURG – State Rep. Tarah Toohil, R-Butler Township, has been appointed to the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Crime and

covered at a price they can afford – to wait until they’re in desperate need of treatment before buying insurance, or to show up in emergency rooms when they’re the sickest, we make the problem of soaring health care costs worse,” Ford said. Ford said bill supporters claim it is related to preserving people’s freedom of choice, but it would actually take away health care choices, remove new insurance options and “take us back to a time when insurance companies did all the choosing – where

they dictated who got covered and what kind of care people received.” In a phone interview after the hearing, Baker said the federal health care act is unconstitutional in mandating people to buy health insurance coverage, with the government setting coverage minimums, and that it would increase taxes tremendously. Baker also noted that Obama stated in a debate when running for office that the government should not mandate people to buy health insurance.

Liquor system hearing today By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

SCRANTON – State Rep. Kevin Murphy said privatizing the state’s liquor system will not only affect livelihoods, but lives as well. Murphy, D-Scranton, a member of the House Liquor Control Committee, will act as co-chairman at a public hearing today regarding the privatization of the state’s liquor stores. House Democratic Policy Committee Chairman Mike Sturla, D-Lancaster, will chair the meeting that will run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., at the University of Scranton in Redington Hall’s Collegiate Hall, 900 Mulberry St. Rep. Dante Santoni, D-Berks, will also be in attendance. Murphy said Tuesday that the 5,700 jobs that would be lost is a major concern, but he said privatizing the liquor business will lead to more crime that will have an adverse effect on all Pennsylvanians. “The average age of employees in the state liquor system is 47,” Murphy said. “These are mature professionals trying to raise families and put children through school. They take serving minors very, very seriously.”

Murphy said that over the past five years, the state’s liquor system has contributed about $2.3 billion to the treasury. “At a time when we are at a fiscal crisis here in Pennsylvania, how can we justify selling this asset and passing on an additional tax burden to the people of Pennsylvania?” Murphy asked. Murphy, who formerly served as a liquor store examiner, used to audit the state’s liquor system. He said he knows the system is self-sufficient and contributes about $500 million annually to the budget. “People have to understand that taxpayers don’t pay a dime for the liquor system,” he said. “The money contributed to the general fund are given after all expenses are paid – leases, salaries, benefits and inventory. The only people that pay are those that purchase wine and spirits.” Murphy said that if the state decides to sell the system, the revenue generated will be enjoyed by “profiteers instead of the people of Pennsylvania.” And, Murphy said, the profits generated by the liquor system and pay for needed programs will have to be made up from taxpayers.

Grand jury modifies indictment Times Leader Staff

SCRANTON – For the second time in five months, a federal grand jury has issued a modified indictment against Lackawanna County Commissioner A.J. Munchak and former Commissioner Robert Cordaro. The new indictment, filed Tuesday, makes mostly technical changes to charges filed against the men. Cordaro and Munchak were first indicted on March 16, 2010, on multiple counts, including racketeering, honest services fraud, money laundering, extortion and bribery. Authorities allege the men extorted money from companies that did business with the county. A second indictment, known as a “superseding indictment,”

& 2011

was filed in October to ensure the charges were in compliance with a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that declared certain sections of the honest services fraud statute to be unconstitutional. The latest superseding indictment makes 15 changes to the second indictment. The most significant change is the addition of two money laundering charges against Cordaro. The other changes are technical in nature, such as changing the numbers of the counts or making changes in phraseology, dates, and other aspects of the prior indictment to provide grammatical and legal clarifications. The trial is currently scheduled to begin June 6 in federal court in Wilkes-Barre.

U.S. nuke plants scrutinized

Probe shows reactors not prepared to deal with power outages like those in Japan. By MATTHEW DALY Associated Press

WASHINGTON — As a result of Japan’s nuclear crisis, government regulators are reviewing a wide range of issues potentially affecting the 104 U.S. nuclear reactors, including their ability to protect against natural disasters and terrorist attacks, respond to complete power blackouts and cope with accidents involving spent fuel. A top official with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission says a 90-day review, ordered by President Barack Obama, will include recommendations for possible changes to inspection procedures, licensing review and emer-

gency communications. Bill Borchardt, the NRC’s executive director for operations, told the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Tuesday that U.S. nuclear plants continue to operate safely. Long before Japan’s emergency, U.S. regulators knew that a power failure lasting for days at an American nuclear plant, whatever the cause, could lead to a radioactive leak. Even so, they have only required reactors to develop plans for dealing with much shorter blackouts. In one nightmare simulation presented by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in 2009, it would take less than a day for radiation to escape from a reactor at the Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station outside Lancaster after an earthquake, flood or fire knocked out all electrical power and there was no way to keep the reactors cool after backup battery

power ran out. The Pennsylvania reactors are of the same older make and model as those releasing radiation at Japan’s Fukushima Dai-ichi plant, which is using other means to try to cool the reactors. And like Fukushima Dai-ichi, the Peach Bottom plant has enough battery power on site to power emergency cooling systems for only eight hours. The risk of a blackout leading to core damage, while extremely remote, exists at all U.S. nuclear plants, and some are more susceptible than others, according to an Associated Press investigation. While regulators say they have confidence that U.S. measures will prevent or significantly delay a core from melting and threatening a radioactive release, the events in Japan raise questions about whether U.S. plants are as prepared as they could and should be.

Police officer has plan to honor leader of ‘Band’ turning it to its 1920s appearance and perhaps transforming it into a museum to the Winters family, once a prominent part of the Ephrata community. The money for the project would come from private donations and state and federal grants. All three phases would be headed by a steering committee.

EPHRATA — An Ephrata police officer wants to honor a hometown hero. Police Sgt. Brian F. Dell Isola, meeting Monday with Ephrata Borough Council’s special projects committee, laid out a threepart plan to honor the memory of the late Maj. Dick Winters. Winters, an Ephrata native who served with Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division during World War II, was immortalized in the book and TV miniseries “Band of Brothers.” Winters died Jan. 2 at age 92. In the first phase of Dell Isola’s plan, a walking trail in the borough’s linear park would be named the Major Richard “Dick” Winters Memorial Trail. The trail follows the old Conrail line and passes less than 100 feet from the home at 41 E. Fulton St. where Winters lived with his parents and grandmother. The trail would feature plaques telling the story of the decorated war hero and include his frequent wartime commands, such as “Follow me” and “Hang tough,” as well as his personal insights on leadership. Phase two would transform the borough-owned green space immediately east of the trail’s parking lot into a memorial park. Dell Isola said the park could perhaps include a reflecting pool “in keeping with his cultural upbringing as a man of peace.”

The park, Dell Isola said, would reflect “peace and serenity.” The ground is the site of the former Ephrata stockyards where, during his boyhood, Winters played and watched livestock arriving by rail cars. The final, most ambitious phase, would involve the purchase of the Winters’ home, re-

PPL promotes nuke plant’s safety

Spokesman said facility near Berwick newer than Japan’s, better prepared for disasters.

INSIDE: Japan admits its nuke plant safeguards lacking, page 5A

By STEVEN FONDO Times Leader Correspondent

LEHMAN TWP. – This week marks the 32nd anniversary of the Three Mile Island nuclear accident, and PPL would like the public to know the company is doing everything possible to prevent a similar incident at its nuclear plant near Berwick. PPL spokesman Joe Scopelliti was at Penn State Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday to discuss the safety features at Susquehanna Steam Electric Station and talk about the recent events at the Fukushima Dai-ichi facility in Japan. “I think the nuclear energy industry, as a whole, is getting, and has to get, safer,” Scopelliti said. “The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is still the regulatory enforcer and they’re under the microscope, and people are watching.” Scopelliti said that since Three Mile Island in 1979, the NRC has enacted a number of safety mea-

sures to prevent major incidents at reactors across the country. The terrorist events on 9/11 added yet another layer of safety measures to the industry. “The recent events in Japan got everyone’s attention,” he said, “and people are wondering if something like that can happen here.

“We expect to see a slight rise in radiation locally because of Japan. It’s been very difficult to get accurate details about the event.” He said Japanese officials are actually dealing with three separate disasters: an earthquake, a tsunami and a nuclear event. “It seems the facility weathered the 9.0 earthquake, but

didn’t fare as well from the tsunami. In the past, Pennsylvania has experienced earthquakes at a magnitude of 5.6 and our reactors are made to withstand much more powerful seismic events. In each instance – flooding, tornadoes or earthquakes – safety features are designed to exceed expected limitations,” he said. Scopelliti said the boiling water reactors at Susquehanna are similar to those at the Fukushima site but are much newer and have many more safety features to avert a core melt-down. “Our Susquehanna facility came on line after Three Mile Island,” Scopelliti added. “We use Mark II containment, which is much larger than the Mark I units in Japan. We have access to Susquehanna River water if necessary, and there are 1 million gallon pools beneath each reactor.” The Susquehanna nuclear plant is 150 feet above river level to avoid flooding and has five portable diesel generators and a pump truck on site for power outages and emergencies.

WILKES-BARRE – A Luzerne County correctional officer saw an opportunity to make money by peddling cocaine after another officer was convicted on drug trafficking charges, according to court testimony on Tuesday. Joseph Ciampi, 43, testified during a preliminary hearing in Wilkes-Barre Central Court that his co-worker, Christopher Walsh, 28, supplied him with cocaine at least four times from late 2008 through early 2009. At one point during their partying, Ciampi testified, Walsh asked to borrow $1,000 to buy a large amount of cocaine to make money. Ciampi said Walsh wanted to

possession and trafficking charges to Luzerne County Court. Walsh also is facing a conspiracy charge. He was one of four current and former employees at the county prison charged after a grand jury investigation called Operation Broken Trust that focused on cocaine trafficking in the area. Walsh’s attorney, Michael Butera, called the case against his client “weak.” “In the 35 years I’ve been doing criminal defense work, I’ve never seen a weaker case,” Butera told Barilla. Butera tried to discredit Ciampi and Gonda as cocaine users being used by prosecutors as key witnesses against Walsh. “There is no evidence whatso-

ever except the bold statements from two alleged drug users,” Butera said. Doherty said Ciampi and Gonda are credible witnesses in knowing the appearance and effects of cocaine. Ciampi said Walsh supplied him with cocaine during parties at his house on Christmas and New Years Eve in 2008, again during a card game in February 2009, and at a Pittston Township bar sometime in March 2009. After Walsh’s arrest, Ciampi said he informed Warden Joseph Piazza that he had used cocaine, and voluntarily surrendered the rank of corporal. He said he is still employed as a correctional officer at the prison.

OTHER OPINION: NEW AGENCY

Consumers need bureau protection

C

ONSUMERS SURE needed a friend when the deceptive lending practices of a rapacious banking industry, aided by lax federal oversight, helped plunge the nation into a recession. Given that history, how dare some members of Congress, in their zeal to stay cozy with the very same financial institutions that enabled the economic crisis, interfere with President Obama’s efforts to provide a friend for consumers now? Loudly standing in the way are Republican lawmakers who, rather than limiting their attacks to the newly created Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, are throwing bombs at Obama’s preference to head the CFPB, Harvard professor Elizabeth Warren. Because a Warren appointment can expect to be filibustered by Republicans in the

Senate, which must confirm it, Obama instead has made her a White House special adviser. But her job is to set up the new agency, which she first proposed in a 2007 article. Warren should know by now that it isn’t so much her that upsets her critics as it is her brainchild, the CFPB, which they want to scuttle. They don’t want the agency to have what it needs to be effective – independence. It’s about time consumers had a real friend to keep them from being exploited by these lenders. Warren herself put it well when she told Bachus’ committee, “We need a cop on the beat that American families can count on.” She’s right. The free-marketeers have had their way. It’s time for sensible regulation that puts consumers above lenders. The Philadelphia Inquirer

t is noteworthy that finally attention is being given to a historical Wilkes-Barre landmark – the Hotel Sterling. In a recent news article, a Luzerne County commissioner suggested perhaps the building be donated to one of the two colleges that already consume much property in the city. If my information is correct, neither college pays property taxes. Schools and churches are exempt, too. There will be many suggestions made regarding what initiative to take regarding the Hotel Sterling. I would not demolish it. It is a sturdy building that needs extensive remodeling, but I feel if the county would forego, as a donation to beautify the entrance to the city, or accept what it has spent on it (about $6 million) to sell it, a developer would bring it back to its former glory. That decision would be better than to make a park or parkade (which the city has in abundance). Put it back on the tax roll. The city needs the money, and the newly built River Common Park needs an asset to draw visitors to the area. I have been an admirer of the Hotel Sterling all my life, enjoyed many events in it and will pray to God someone has the sense to do something worthy with the property. Elaine Givens Plymouth

Quake victims deserve God’s love, our prayers

I

’m writing in response to a letter to the editor titled “Natural disasters require our help, not our prayers” (March 17), which was submitted by Justin Vacula, co-organizer and spokesman of the NEPA Freethought Society. Vacula wrote: “The recent devastation in Japan has led many well-meaning believers in God to pray, but their prayers are futile, displaying an obvious contradiction in their supernaturalistic worldview. “Theists believe that God created the universe and that everything happens according to his will.” He further wrote, in part, “disasters of the world should lead us to the conclusion that belief in an omni-God is irrational.” Mr. Vacula, by your words, you appear to be an atheist and/or New Ager and hold the belief that you are what I lovingly refer to as a “monkeyman,” evolved from your ancestral ape lineage. Your views on God and prayer are irrational and without merit. Ask the countless believers who have and do know the power of the living God, which contradict your unsubstantiated viewpoint. Why you had to publicly associate God and prayer with disasters and death, and then with the American Red

Cross and donations, is beyond comprehension. God did create the universe, and man was created in his image. Jesus is our salvation, for no man will come to the father but through him. God does not wantonly kill men. He is a loving God. Men kill men. Sin, irrational thinking and stupidity destroy men. If a man builds a house on top of a volcano, would it not be logical and rational to believe that one day that house will be destroyed? Would it not be rational to believe that people will die? If men build nuclear power plants on or near volcanic fault lines, would it not be rational to believe one day catastrophic events will ensue? And, yes, it is our moral obligation to try to help our fellow man in times of disaster or misfortune, but it doesn’t necessarily mean the help must come in the form of material things or money, as you suggest. Prayer is far more powerful and lasting. Joseph Gregory Nanticoke

Lofty future envisioned for distressed Sterling

love the shape and the stonework of the Hotel Sterling in Wilkes-Barre. So many people I know would love to have an apartment or condominium there because of the location. I always envisioned the rooftop enclosed in glass with a restaurant and dance floor with wonderful views of the river; talk about dancing under the stars. Do not tear it down. C. Lane Wilkes-Barre

ell, the arena in Wilkes-Barre Township says it’s going to double its parking fee (from $5 to $10). Its board members want to pave the entire parking lot. The arena recently got $50,000 from the Luzerne County Convention Center Authority and $200,000 from a federal grant to pave a portion of the lot. My question is this: Where are the thousands of dollars from the parking fees that have been charged over the years? Guess I won’t be attending any more shows. C. Kaspriski Pittston

God will be the judge of those who spread hate

I

start this letter by giving my condolences to those families who have lost a loved one in the war on terror. Second, I apologize to those people who had to suffer the protests from the socalled “children of God” from that church in Kansas. As a born-again Christian, I feel that these people have lost the real reason why Jesus came. To paraphrase John 3:17, God did not send his son into the world to condemn it, but to save it. So if these folks truly believe that what they are doing is of God, I feel sorry for them. In Proverbs it gives a list of the things that God hates. And the hate that these people are spreading is on his list. So when the time comes when we stand before God, and we all will, they are going to have to give an account for their actions. God will have the final word. David Krommes Wilkes-Barre

reached within 60 miles of the city before they were hit by the onslaught from Gadhafi’s forces, driving them back east to Bin Jawwad under barrages of rocket and tank fire. World leaders meeting in London agreed Gadhafi should step down but have yet to decide what additional pressure to put on him. “Gadhafi has lost the legitimacy to lead, so we believe he must go. We’re working with the international community to try to achieve that outcome,” U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton told reporters after the talks concluded. German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said it “has to be made very clear to Gadhafi: His time is over.” But Germany and other countries have expressed reservations about the current military intervention in Libya, let alone expanding it. France has struck a more forceful tone. Defense Minister Gerard Longuet told France-Inter radio that Paris and London believe the campaign “must obtain more” than the end of shooting at civilians. The U.S. Navy reported Tuesday that two of its aircraft and a guided missile destroyer attacked a number of Libyan coast guard vessels, rendering them inoperable, in the port of Misrata. It said the Libyan vessels had been “firing indiscriminately” at merchant ships. U.S. ships and submarines also unleashed 22 cruise missiles late Monday and early Tuesday at Libyan missile storage facilities in the Tripoli area. New explosions were heard in Tripoli on Tuesday night in a sign of a new barrage. Libyan state TV reported

tually getting Gadhafi to step down is not going to happen overnight ... it’s going to take a little bit of time." Whether the rebels will receive arms from the allies remains an open question, Obama told NBC News as he made the rounds of the network evening news programs. "One of the questions that we want to answer is: Do we start getting to a stage where Gadhafi’s forces are sufficiently degraded, where it may not be necessary to arm opposition groups?" Obama said. A senior Obama administration official said the U.S. would soon send an envoy to Libya to meet with rebel leaders. Chris Stevens, former U.S. envoy to Tripoli, will travel to the rebel stronghold of Benghazi in the coming days to establish better

ties with groups seeking to oust the longtime Libyan leader. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal planning, stressed that the move doesn’t constitute formal recognition of the opposition. In an open letter to the international community, meanwhile, Gadhafi called for a halt to the “monstrous assault” on Libya and maintained the rebels were supported by the al-Qaida terrorist network, a claim the opposition denies. “What is happening now is providing a cover for al-Qaida through airstrikes and missiles to enable al-Qaida to control North Africa and turn it into a new Afghanistan,” he said.

A teachers union representative could not be reached for comment for this story. “We’re not going to fill those positions,” he said, saving about $440,000, though that will mean larger class sizes in elementary grades.

nia School District Health Trust plan to ask the trust to “give back” some of an estimated $15 million surplus. The trust is a consortium of nine districts. It has a policy of keeping the equivalent of threemonths premiums in reserve for any surge in claims or other problems, but Bernardi said that amounts to about $12 million, and that the trust could afford to let each district go at least one month without paying a premium next year. At Wyoming Area, that would save about $230,000. The trust has offered such premium-free months in the past, though the surplus was closer to $18 million. The trust had also been keeping premium increases in the single digits for years, but is made significant progress in eliminating cases. She also said Central Court could work if alterations are made, such as implementing a system at the district judge level in which a case is assigned an assistant district attorney, arraignment date, pre-trial date and judge from the beginning.

hiking premiums for the upcoming school year by an average of about 16.7 percent per district, Bernardi said. If all of Bernardi’s proposed cuts came through, the district would save about $860,000. That would be enough to eliminate a 6.1 percent property tax increase proposed in the preliminary budget drawn up in February. Business consultant Tom Melone said the school board would have to decide what to do with the savings if they materialize, but he noted the preliminary budget uses almost all of a $1.6 million fund balance, or surplus, expected to exist at the end of this fiscal year on June 30. He said if the savings happen, it would be prudent for the board to set aside some in re-

serve for emergencies, keeping at least some of the tax hike in place. Melone also pointed out that even if the district saves about $850,000, nearly all of that will get eaten up in the next fiscal year by the combination of the hefty health insurance increase and a jump in the amount the district must contribute to the teacher pension fund. Bernardi said the district is still looking for cuts, and likely will find more before the final budget is passed, which must occur by June 30. “Difficult economic times require difficult economic decisions,” he said. Times Leader Correspondent Janine Ungvarsky contributed to this story.

In 2009, Mirabito said she spent approximately $15,000 on her campaign. This year, she expects to spend between $20,000 and $25,000 on the primary. Mirabito said she will not take campaign contributions from lawyers, and she has made contact with voters earlier this time around to get out and let people

know about her before the May 17 primary. She said she is not soliciting contributions, because she recognizes the strain on people’s wallets due to the economy’s status. “Everyone has a lapel they can put a pin on or a yard they can put a sign in,” Mirabito said. “Not everyone has the money to give.”

A major treat

Giambi brothers and Marvin Benard take the witness stand at slugger’s trial. By RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer

SAN FRANCISCO — One by one, they walked down the aisle of Courtroom 10 and took a seat on the witness stand for their public day of reckoning. First Jason Giambi, the 2000 American League MVP. Then his brother Jeremy. And finally Marvin Benard, Barry Bonds’ San Francisco Giants teammate. In the biggest mass confession to steroids use in baseball history, the trio testified Tuesday at Bonds’ trial. They all said they purBonds chased and used performance-enhancing drugs from Greg Anderson, the trainer who is in jail for his refusal to testify against Bonds. “I understood what it was. A steroid,” Jeremy Giambi said. All three had told their stories to a grand jury in 2003, and many details of that testimony were published by the San Francisco Chronicle the following year. And the Mitchell Report in December 2007 detailed the rise of baseball’s Steroids Era. But that was on paper. On Tuesday, the players were forced to answer questions in public from a federal prosecutor about how, when and why they took performance-enhancing drugs. While Jason Giambi was a cleanup hitter for most of his career, the former Oakland and New York Yankees star led off the athlete testimony on the afternoon of the trial’s sixth day. Now a 40year-old first baseman for the Colorado Rockies, he said he first met Anderson when the trainer accompanied Bonds on the AllStar tour of Japan following the 2002 season — just before the onset of drug testing in baseball. Giambi and Bonds were separated by only an empty locker in the All-Star clubhouse, and Giambi was aware that Anderson worked with Bonds. When they returned to the U.S., Jason Giambi flew from his home in Henderson, Nev., to meet Anderson in the Bay Area, and Anderson said he would have Giambi’s blood tested to determine whether he was deficient in “zinc” and “magnesium.” When the results came back, Anderson informed Giambi his sample was positive for the steroid Deca-Durabolin. “He told me that would trip the Major League Baseball test, See BONDS, Page 6B

Big Yankees tune up A mound of success with minor leaguers won’t change Hughes By PAUL SOKOLOSKI psokoloski@timesleader.com

TAMPA, Fla. – Before they bolted from Tampa, the New York Yankees left spring training with a bang. At least, as far as their minor league affiliates were concerned. A plethora of New York’s pitchers and recovering center fielder Curtis Granderson came down to the minor league complex to work in a simulated game Tuesday, just before the parent Yankees broke camp and headed for New York to open

the 2011 season against the Detroit Tigers on Thursday. The headliner was New York’s No. 3 starter Phil Hughes, who pitched five innings in his final workout before he takes the mound Sunday at new Yankee Stadium. “Just a little tune-up,” said Hughes, who went seven innings last Wednesday to pick up the victory in his final real start See YANKEES, Page 6B

HE IS locked into the starting rotation of the New York Yankees now, so this spring training was unlike any other Phil Hughes ever experienced before. He didn’t have to fight for a job this time. That doesn’t mean Hughes ever stopped swinging. “I really didn’t try to change too much,” Hughes said. “I

WILKES-BARRE – Last year, Wilkes found ways to lose baseball games. The first-place Colonels, of late, have been finding different ways to win, posting their eighth consecutive victory with Tuesday’s sweep of King’s. Wilkes capitalized on a twoout error to end game one, scoring four runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to lock a come-from-behind 7-6 victory.

OPINION TIM DAHLBERG

VCU putting Vegas casino on the hook Jay Kornegay isn’t sure who the guy is, or exactly what his motivation was. All he knows is no one is laughing at him now. That probably wasn’t the case months ago when the man walked into the sports book at the Las Vegas Hilton, put $10 on the counter and pocketed a betting slip on Virginia Commonwealth to win the national championship. It was the kind of wager that can cause snickers among the knowing, much like betting on the Pittsburgh Pirates to win the World Series. “Maybe it’s someone whose girlfriend went to VCU,” Kornegay said. “I don’t know. But you’d like to be holding that golden ticket.” Who wouldn’t. Two more wins for the Rams, and they go into the record books as the most unlikely of all Cinderellas, the first team to win seven games in the NCAA tournament and win the national title. And the bettor who holds the winning ticket will be a cool $50,000 richer. Try making that in your office pool. “I was kind of hoping it would end yesterday,” said Kornegay, who runs the Hilton sports book. “I just shake my head thinking they’re in the Final Four.” The Hilton book will survive, of course, even if VCU caps its remarkable run with the title. The betting in Vegas is that VCU won’t, with the Rams the longest shot of the Final Four teams at 9-2 odds. But the beauty of the NCAA tournament is that there’s still room for marginal teams to get hot and do something magical. And they don’t get much more marginal than VCU, which was savaged on national television by ESPN’s Jay Bilas as unworthy when the field was announced and then made an underdog in every game by professional oddsmakers. Add Butler to the mix, and even the wise guys are scratching their heads. “There’s always been one team that is a big surprise,” said Art Manteris, who runs the sports books for Station Casinos. “I don’t ever remember two.” If the people who should know are confused, so are the average Joes. Well, not all the average Joes. Joe Pearlman, who lives in East Brunswick, N.J., and works in information technology, was one of only two people out of 5.9 million entries in ESPN.com’s bracket tournament to pick all the Final Four teams correctly, something that could make him $10,000 should VCU go on to win the national title. Pearlman’s wife, Susan, was busy at home Monday answering phone calls from people wondering how her husband is so smart, and explaining that he filled out a bracket just for fun and took only 10 minutes to complete it. “Is this a big deal every year when this happens?” she asked. This year it is, and the ESPN.com statistics show why. According to contest organizers, only 29.7 percent of the 5.9 million entries had at least one Final Four team correct, 2.1 percent had two right, and just 1,093 had three of the Final Four correct. Among the millions who had their brackets busted by VCU was President Barack Obama, who had Kansas to win it all. But the Rams did make some money for bettors in Vegas, who won $650 for every $100 they wagered that VCU could beat the Jayhawks straight up. If the NCAA had its way, of See VEGAS, Page 6B

Harrellson: Kentucky’s Renaissance man

Senior center came of age when Wildcats lost Kanter

By WILL GRAVES AP Sports Writer

THE FINAL FOUR

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky center Josh Harrellson could hear the murmurs when the NCAA ruled freshman big man Enes Kanter permanently ineligible in January. The thought was the Wildcats were done without the highly recruited Kanter. That they couldn’t thrive relying on Harrellson, a little-used reserve who played all of 88 minutes as junior, to serve as their only post presence. Harrellson tried not to take it personally. He knows better than most how good Kanter is and even offered to give up his senior year if it meant Kanter — sidelined for accepting improper benefits while playing for a Turkish club team two years ago — could take his place. Though it was a heartfelt gesture, it had no bearing on Kanter’s situation. “I wanted him to play more than anybody,” Harrellson said. “Well, maybe

Coach (John Calipari) wanted him to play more.” And the rest of one of college basketball’s most ardent fan bases. Harrellson was considered too goofy, too slow, too inconsistent to be considered a legitimate threat at either end of the floor. This is the same kid who once skipped a game as a freshman in high school to go deer hunting, who had his Twitter privileges revoked by Calipari after expressing frustration over what he considered a lack of respect from his coach. Kanter’s nickname is “the UnderKanter,” a twist on one of his idols, professional wrestler “The Undertaker.” Har-

rellson’s nickname is “Jorts,” a tribute to his affinity for knee-length jean shorts that he likes to wear regardless of the sometimes unpredictable Bluegrass weather. Many felt there was no way the Wildcats could be considered a legitimate Final Four threat with Harrellson as the enforcer. But the end of Kanter’s season became the beginning of Harrellson’s renaissance. The player considered an afterthought in October is owning March while leading the Wildcats to their first Final Four in 13 years. Kentucky (29-8) plays Connecticut (30-9) in Houston on Saturday for a spot in the national title game. “When Josh heard Enes couldn’t play, he changed his mentality,” said Kentucky guard DeAndre Liggins. “He started to do all his extra stuff to make him better.” Technically, Harrellson didn’t have a choice. Calipari’s punishment for Har-

rellson running off at the Twitter was to make him run until he puked on the court. He ordered Harrellson to endure grueling conditioning drills 30 minutes before each practice. Calipari was trying to get Harrellson to quit. Harrellson did the opposite. Suddenly the kid who admits he only picked up the game because he was tall and good at it, but couldn’t play more than a handful of minutes without asking to come out, was running the floor alongside Calipari’s latest batch of McDonald’s All-Americans. He scored 23 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in a win over Louisville on New Year’s Eve and led the Southeastern Conference in rebounding, averaging 8.8 in league play. Harrellson has been even better in the postseason, where he’s averaging 12.8 points and 8.7 rebounds a game while holding his own against some of the best post players in the country.

Patience paying off for Skeen

Butler duo has shined in tourney

By HANK KURZ Jr. AP Sports Writer

By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer

RICHMOND, Va. — Patience has been a necessary virtue for Jamie Skeen since he transferred from Wake Forest to Virginia Commonwealth University three years ago. First, he had to sit out a season. Then there was a coaching change. Even when he got on the floor last season, the Rams still had Larry Sanders as their dominant low post player. It wasn’t until Sanders left early for the NBA did the middle open up for the former North Carolina “Mr. Basketball.” Now the 6-foot-9, 240 pounder is a big reason the Rams are headed to the Final Four. VCU (28-11) will play Butler (27-9) on Saturday in Houston. “He’s had a phenomenal year for us and one that just keeps getting better and better,” Rams coach Shaka Smart said. “He became our go-to guy. He was going to get as many touches as he could handle, and now we’ve been able to go to him over and over and over again and he’s responded.” Skeen has averaged 15.4 points and 7.4 rebounds for the Rams (28-11), and was probably never better than in their 71-61 shocker against Kansas in the Southwest Regional championship. He was 4 for 7 on 3-pointers, scored 26 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. He’s still trying to absorb all that has happened. “Making it to the Final Four, that’s just a surreal feeling,” Skeen said Tuesday. The Rams’ run through five schools from major conferences has made them a national curiosity, and the 5,000 or so fans that welcomed them home early Monday can’t stop praising them. Skeen had little trouble Tuesday getting some information from his professor in a Sociology class — his major — so he wouldn’t be too far behind when he returns from Houston.

INDIANAPOLIS — Khyle Marshall spent most of the season trying to crack Butler’s experienced lineup. Crishawn Hopkins settled for playing everybody else’s best point guard. When the two finally got a chance to show what they could in last week’s regional final, well, they delivered in typical Butler fashion — making all those critical plays to help send the Bulldogs get to a second straight Final Four. “I think Khyle’s been big all through the tournament. He does things that don’t show up, like tips and hustle plays,” senior Matt Howard said. “They really are coming along because we’ve put them in positions where they can be successful.” Even though they’ve taken different paths to get here. Marshall, a muscular 6-foot-7, 210-pound forward from Florida, made an immediate impact because of his size and athleticism. He averaged 5.9 points in 15.2 minutes this season, with a steadily increasing role as the top backup for the foul-prone Howard or 611 sophomore center Andrew Smith. Hopkins, last season’s player of the year in Indianapolis, has barely averaged 6 minutes and played in only 20 of 36 games. The reason for the big disparity between the highly-touted newcomers: Butler has a plethora of guards and long-range shooters already in its rotation, but always wants another big body. Coach Brad Stevens, admittedly a numbers fanatic, doesn’t think their stats are reflective of what they’ve done. “He (Hopkins) plays the same spot as Ronald (Nored) so we had to decide whether to play him every other possession in practice or whether to let him run the other team’s stuff,” Stevens said Monday. “Last week, he was Erving Walker and Jordan Taylor. Two weeks before that, he was Norris Cole and he was just unbelievable. We couldn’t guard him (Hopkins).” Walker and Taylor are the point guards for Florida and Wisconsin. Cole is the point guard for Horizon League rival Cleveland State. And all three would acknowledge it’s not easy beating this defense — especially now. Only two of Butler’s last 14 opponents have reached 70 points — Florida and Pittsburgh — and in the tournament, opponents are shooting just 41.2 percent from the field. But the young duo is following the same roadmap Smith and others have taken at Butler.

A standout point guard — he set the Oregon record with 458 career assists from1991-95 — Smith dreamed of playing Division I basketball, maybe getting a shot at the NBA.

UConn freshman Jeremy Lamb, center, goes to the basket during practice in Storrs, Conn., Tuesday. The Huskies junior star Kemba Walker gets most attention, but the play of three freshmen, especially Lamb, has been part of the team’s Final Four run.

UConn frosh still calm and cool By PAT EATON-ROBB Associated Press

STORRS, Conn. — Connecticut’s freshmen aren’t showing any signs of nerves headed into the Final Four, just a quiet confidence. Junior All-American Kemba Walker says that will be a key to how the Huskies perform in Houston this weekend on a stage bigger than freshmen Jeremy Lamb, Shabazz Napier and Roscoe Smith have ever played. UConn was back on campus Tuesday, practicing before today’s trip to Houston. The Huskies play Kentucky on Saturday. Walker said once they get to Texas, he will sit down with the freshmen and tell them about his experiences during the 2009 Final Four, where UConn lost to Michigan State. He wants to make sure this class does not get as overwhelmed as he did by the experience. “I don’t think anybody could tell them anything right now,” Walker said. “They’re on top of the world right now. They’re playing great basketball, each and every one of them. We’re going to need these guys big time for us. They got us where we are now, so hopefully they can keep it up.” Walker has gotten most of the credit for UConn’s nine-game run through the postseason, averaging almost 27 points a game in the NCAA tournament. very little playing time, and would probably be better off at a Division III program. Accepted at Harvard, Yale and Brown, Smart instead chose to take an academic scholarship at Kenyon College, a small private school in Gambier, Ohio, and play for Bill Brown. “Bill Brown is probably the closest I had, definitely the closest I had to a father figure in my life,” Smart said. “Going to Kenyon was an easy decision.” Academically, Smart did so well at Kenyon — he graduated magna cum laude — that his adviser suggested he pursue a Ph.D. But

Calhoun to decide future after Final Four STORRS, Conn. — Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun says he won’t make a decision on his future until well after the Final Four. The 68-year-old Hall of Famer, with two national championships, is taking his fourth UConn team to the national semifinals. He said Tuesday if UConn wins another title, “standing on the podium would be a bad time to make a decision, and quite frankly if things don’t go well it would be a lousy time to make a decision.” There were calls for Calhoun’s job after the Huskies failed to make the tournament in 2010 and the NCAA issued a report that found several major recruiting violations in the UConn program. UConn finished this regular season with losses in four of its last five games, but has gone 9-0 since.

But Lamb has been averaging over 18 points, and shooting over 73 percent from 3-point range. His 3-pointer, steal and dunk were keys to UConn’s win over San Diego State in the regional semifinals. And his teammates say his calm, almost stoic demeanor, has helped keep the Huskies from getting too keyed up in key situations.

Brown, who left after Smart’s freshman year, had told Smart there would always be a job open on his staff, and Smart couldn’t pass up the opportunity. After graduating from Kenyon, Smart joined Brown as an assistant at California (Pa.) University. “I believe he sees coaching as the way I see teaching, which is a way to reach kids and to make a difference in their lives,” said Peter Rutkoff, an American studies professor at Kenyon who served as Smart’s adviser and directed his senior honors project. “The coaching thing really grabbed him in a way that was undeniable.”

“He just has that laid-back personality, but trust me no one’s heart is beating any faster than his,” said coach Jim Calhoun. “I think he can be a very special player and he’s starting to become a special player.” Smith scored a career-high 17 in the Huskies first-round win over Bucknell and has been averaging six points and five rebounds. Nappier averages eight points, and had 10 in the regional final win over Arizona. But Walker says Nappier’s biggest contributions have not shown up on the stat sheet. “He brings that extra playmaking ability to the team,” Walker said. “There’s times when I’m not able to be on the ball the whole game because maybe I’m a little fatigued. Guys will want to ball pressure me, and he gives me that extra edge.” Nappier said the freshmen realized their time had come during the Arizona game, when during a late timeout, the coaches drew up a play for Lamb instead of Walker. “For the whole team to point out a freshman, it showed a lot,” he said. Lamb says he’s been inspired by watching video clips of his father, Rolando Lamb, hitting a game-winning buzzer-beater in the second round of the 1984 tournament for Virginia Commonwealth. That shot sent Northeastern and its coach, Jim Calhoun, walking off the court dejected.

That was no surprise to Bavery, the social studies teacher who would coach Smart at Oregon High School. His former players often worked his youth camps. When they used their breaks to get water, eat lunch or even just rest for a few minutes, Smart would stay out on the court, working on his game, and the campers would soon join him. “Pretty soon, you’d literally see the entire gym, 35 to 40 campers chasing him all over the gym,” Bavery said. “It was like the Pied Piper. That was where you could really see his high-level passion for

the game.” Smart spent two years at California, working camps in his free time. It was at one of those camps that he caught the eye of Dayton coach Oliver Purnell, who offered him a job as director of basketball operations. Two years later, Smart was hired as an assistant at Akron by Keith Dambrot, LeBron James’ high school coach. On Smart’s first day, Dambrot put him in charge of James’ workout — no small task considering that was the summer James got drafted.

Penguins add two defensemen for stretch run By TOM VENESKY tvenesky@timesleader.com

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins have added a couple of young defensemen during their stretch run into the playoffs. Joe Rogalski – a 2010 6th Round draft pick, was signed to an amateur tryout contract on Friday after he completed his fourth season of junior hockey with the Sarnia Sting in the OHL. Rogalski, 19, posted 32 points (seven goals, 25 assists) and 44 penalty minutes in 63 games with Sarnia this season. On Monday, the Penguins signed 2006 6th Round draft pick Viktor Ekbom to an amateur tryout contract. The 21-year-old defenseman recently completed his third season in the Swedish

PRO TENNIS

The Associated Press

earlier, Lopresto and the Colonels (10-4, 5-0 Freedom) were given a golden opportunity when Monarch third baseman Matt Pritchard delivered an errant throw that would have potentially ended the game. “I was just trying to find a hole and bring some runners home,” said Lopresto. “The whole game we were beating ourselves up. Stealing a win from King’s would give this team a huge lift for the rest of the series.” Lopresto finished the first game with a 3-for-4 performance – his second straight three-hit outing – and raised his batting average to .333. “I’m staying confident and keeping a clear mind at the plate. It’s a combination of me seeing the ball well and not getting aggressive up there.” After going 2-4 in its spring training trip to Myrtle Beach, S.C., Wilkes is undefeated since migrating north and holds a 1½game lead over DeSales in the Freedom Conference. Tied 3-3 in the nightcap, the Colonels tallied five runs in the fifth inning. The inning was capped by Meyers graduate Rich Cosgrove’s two-run triple to the deepest part of center field. Cosgrove finished with two hits and three RBIs. “Early in both games, we weren’t getting the big hits,” said Wilkes coach Joe Folek. “Timely hitting benefits us in the late innings, and that was the difference in the game.” Against a King’s (5-11, 1-3 Freedom) team that came into the contest with an average of 14 hits per game, starters Al Clocker and

George Parkhurst, Harry Parkhurst and Bijoy Ghosh all won in singles action as the Blue Knights swept Holy Redeemer.

Moore gets 3,000th, UConn routs Duke

Cavaliers top James, Heat

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Make it one more Final Four for Maya Moore and Connecticut. Moore had 28 points, including the 3,000th of her career, to lead top-seed UConn to a 75-40 win over Duke on Tuesday night The Huskies are two victories away from winning their third straight national championship, mathcing the school’s own run from 2002-04 and Tennessee’s from 1996-98.

Next up for coach Geno Auriemma’s latest juggernaut is Notre Dame on Sunday in the national semifinals in Indianapolis. The two Big East teams are plenty familiar with each other, having played three times this season already. UConn won all of those matchups including a 73-64 victory in the Big East tournament championship game. Once again rural Storrs, Conn. is the center of the college basketball world as both

the men’s and women’s teams are in the Final Four. It’s the third time in the past seven years that both programs have advanced this far with 2004 culminating in dual titles. Earlier in the day, Moore became only the second fourtime All-American. She was a unanimous choice for the third straight year and has helped Connecticut to an unprecedented 149 victories in her stellar college career, while losing only

three times. Tuesday night she became only the seventh D-I player to reach 3,000 points. Southwest Missouri State star Jackie Stiles was the last in 2001. Texas A&M 58, Baylor 46 DALLAS — Sydney Carter scored 22 points and Texas A&M finally beat Baylor to send the Aggies to their first Final Four in school history. Texas A&M (31-5) had lost

eight straight games against its Big 12 rival, including the previous three this season. When it counted most, the Aggies scored the first seven points in the Dallas Regional championship and led throughout the game. Baylor (34-3) and All-American post player Brittney Griner will have to settle for the Big 12 regular season and tournament trophies the still-young Bears already won this season.

The Associated Press

CLEVELAND — In an unbearable season of losses, Cleveland got the win it wanted most. The Cavaliers took down LeBron James. Despite blowing a 23-point lead, the Cavs battled back and beat the Miami Heat 102-90 on Tuesday night, getting a dose of revenge against James, who was making his second homecoming visit to Cleveland since leaving the city as a free agent last summer. J.J. Hickson scored 21 and Anthony Parker scored 20 for the Cavs, who were embarrassed by James and the Heat 118-90 on Dec. 2 — a night when Cleveland fans unleashed their hatred on the superstar.

Durant scored eight of Oklahoma City’s nine points in overtime, but served as a decoy to create room along the right side of the lane as Westbrook drove to the basket and got fouled.

Fiesta Bowl fires CEO over ‘apparent scheme’ By BOB BAUM AP Sports Writer

PHOENIX — The Fiesta Bowl fired president and CEO John Junker after a scathing internal report released Tuesday found “an apparent scheme” to reimburse employees for political contributions and “an apparent conspiracy” to cover it up. Thereimbursements,listedasat least $46,539, appear to violate state and federal campaign finance laws. The Arizona attorney general’s office is conducting a probe of the matter. The BCS reacted swiftly, saying it would undertake an investigation of its own to “consider whether the Fiesta Bowl should remain a

of spring training. “Not as many innings as last time, but better command. It’s starting to get going.” Much to the surprise – and delight – of a handful of wide-eyed fans expecting to see an exhibition between minor leaguers, the guys who can save Hughes also got it in gear at the Yankees minor league complex. Big league relievers Mariano Rivera, Joba Chamberlain and David Robertson all threw simulated innings during the minor league workout. Their extra work load was necessitated when Monday’s spring exhibition game against Tampa Bay was rained out, forcing the Yankees to find other avenues where their key players could get one last round of spring training time other than in the big team’s final spring game against Detroit on Tuesday afternoon. And the minor league complex opened up when the scheduled Class Triple-A game between the Scranton/WilkesBarre Yankees and Lehigh Valley (of the Philadelphia Phillies), along with the Double-A game between those two organizations, was postponed due to wet grounds. That gave Hughes enough ground to work five solid innings, allowing four hits, one run but no walks against minor league hitters and Granderson. “Just pounding the strike zone, throw a lot of strikes,” Hughes said his objective of the day was. “I feel like I accomplished that for the most part.” New York’s three key relievers accomplished some spring-ending success Chamberlain pitched two sol-

New York’s starting rotation, ready to take the ball Sunday and wrap up the first series of the season against the Detroit Tigers at Yankee Stadium. It was a difficult place for Hughes to find a regular home during his earlier years. He was just 21 years old when he opened the 2008 season as the youngest pitcher in the major leagues, gaining a staring job more on his potential as a No. 1 draft pick and power pitcher than on performance. After going 0-4 during two stints with the Yankees, Hughes ended that 2008 season pitching the Scranton/WilkesBarre Yankees to the Governors’ Cup. That’s where the 2009 season began for Hughes after losing a training camp battle to stay

BCS bowl game or other appropriate sanctions.” TheFiestaboardofdirectorsvoted unanimously to fire Junker “for his improper and inappropriate activities documented” in the report. Junker, in his ubiquitous bright yellow Fiesta Bowl sports jacket, had been the face of the event for three decades, leading it from an upstart event to one of the BCS giants. With an annual salary of about $600,000, he had been on paid administrative lead since Feb. 4 after, the board said, he failed to complywithtwowrittendirectives to cooperate with the investigation. The board said the probe also uncovered “excessive compensaid innings, closer Rivera set down the side after a walk, and Robertson allowed a single to former teammate and current SWB Yankees infielder Kevin Russo, but struck out two in his inning of work. Granderson worked out the kinks in the sore muscle in his side by hopping back and forth to take swings on two fields where projected Triple-A and Double-A pitchers were working simulated games. In the cloudy but near-70-degree weather of Florida, the atmosphere was hardly intense. The first inning ended when Hughes called a low, sinking liner to center field gap an out there were no outfielders in this simulated game - drawing incredulous laughs when he proclaimed, "Grandy (Granderson) would’ve had it.’ Maybe by picking it from the ground at the base of the wall. To his credit, and to Brad Suttle’s surprise, Hughes stopped Suttle from returning to the bench and awarded a double when Suttle’s towering drive to right field one-hopped over the wall. Guess Hughes doesn’t have the same faith in New York right fielder Nick Swisher as he has in Granderson. And Ray Kruml went from having a grand old time to feeling like a victim of grand larceny. Kruml, an outfielder on Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s roster, singled home Suttle in the fifth inning for the only run off Hughes. But later, Kruml solid swing was crumpled when hard-throwing SWB Yankees pitcher Lance Pendleton sawed off his bat. Pendleton was just returned to the Yankees organization Sunday from the Houston Astros. The Astros selected Pendleton in December’s Rule 5 Draft, but elected to return him to the Yankees instead of keeping him on the major league roster all seawith New York. At least, until Hughes was promoted from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to become so dependable in a late-inning relief role, the parent Yankees leaned on him hard to help them win their 27th World Championship. Even last spring, Hughes went right down to the wire before besting Joba Chamberlain for the last spot in New York’s rotation. Just the thought of those spring trainings past made Hughes grimace a little. Maybe that’s why Hughes still feels the need to prove himself, even after putting together a whole season of evidence that suggests he is in New York’s plans to stay. By the time the Yankees opened the playoffs last season, they had just two starting pitchers they were sure they could count on – staff ace CC Sabathia and Hughes. Not much as changed since

tion, nonbusiness and inappropriate expenditures and inappropriate gifts.” The 276-page report of an investigation that conducted by Fiesta Bowl board members and a retired Arizona state Supreme Court justice, was published on the bowl’s Web site fiestabowl.org. The investigators said it found the “apparent scheme” to reimburse at least $46,539 for employees’ political contributions. The probe also found “an apparent conspiracy to conceal the reimbursement scheme from the bowl’s Board of Directors and state officials,” according to the news release accompanying the report. The BCS issued a statement

from executive director Bill Hancock and Penn State University President Graham Spanier, chair of the presidential oversight committee. “We are deeply disappointed and troubled to learn of these findingsrelatedtotheFiestaBowl,”the BCS said. “Unprofessional, unethical or improper behavior is unacceptable. There is no place for such activities in higher education or in collegiate sports. It is expected that all parties contracted with the BCS will live up to the highest standards. We do not wish to be associated with entities that believe otherwise. “ BCS leaders said they will appoint a task force to evaluate the

Maxwell was obtained from Washington in an early February trade.

then. A.J. Burnett is hardly a rock as this year’s No. 2 starter. And things are so shaky behind Hughes, the Yankees just went out and signed Kevin Millwood to find out if the fading starter has anything left. Hughes may be just getting started. He won 18 games and lost only eight in his breakout season last year, earning a trip to his first All-Star Game. He was the first Yankees pitcher since Ron Guidry in 1985 to work at least 175 innings and not hit anyone. He won his first five starts and had a 10-1 record by the middle of June, before tailing off late in the season. Hughes was 1-2 in the playoffs – losing twice to the Texas Rangers in the American League Championship Series. But the electricity he brought to New York’s starting rotation last year has the Yankees excited about this season.

Hughes plans to make sure that feeling stays around the whole year. “I want to do a lot of the same things I did in the first half of last year, and continue them through the second half this year,” Hughes said. “I want to take the ball every five days, winning ballgames for this team.” He took the ball for a simulated game Tuesday at the Yankees minor league complex, pitching five sharp innings while sharpening up for his first start of the season. That will come Sunday in New York. “I’ll try to work hard, and we’ll see how this year plays out,” Hughes said. It is not hard to see how the past can motivate Hughes, and stop him from playing around. Paul Sokoloski is a sports columnist for The Times Leader. Reach him at psokoloski@timesleader.com.

Wichita State blows out Washington St. in NIT The Associated Press

Bowl officials said the initial, brief investigation of the reimbursements allegations was “flawed.” That probe found no evidence of any such wrongdoing.

ahead basket in the closing seconds, and top-seeded Alabama withstood a late rally to beat Colorado 62-61 in the NIT semifinals Tuesday night. Releford finished with 13 points for the Crimson Tide (25-11), who advanced to play Wichita State on Thursday night for the title.

and I should look into taking something else,” said Jason Giambi, wearing a blue suit, white shirt with checks and black-red-and-white striped tie. “He said he would send me a package of things that I needed.” By mid-December, Anderson sent testosterone to Giambi along with syringes and vitamins. “Did you understand that to be a steroid?” Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey D. Nedrow asked. “Yes,” Giambi answered. Bonds is charged with four counts of making false statements to the grand jury and one count of obstruction for denying he knowingly took performanceenhancing drugs. He told the grand jury that Anderson had told him he was taking “flaxseed oil” and “arthritic balm,” which in reality were designer steroids nicknamed “the clear” and “the cream.” With the courtroom full and getting warm, Giambi, a fivetime All-Star with 415 career home runs, said Anderson explained how the two designer steroids worked by raising both testosterone and epitestosterone and keeping the ratio roughly the same as naturally occurs, so as not to “trip a drug test.” “It was very secretive to get your hands on it,” Giambi said. “The clear” turned out to be Tetrahydrogestrinone (THG) and “the cream” was a testosterone-based substance. Giambi paid about $10,000 to Anderson for several shipments. Before Giambi testified, U.S. District Judge Susan Illston told jurors the testimony was to show “the manner in which Greg Anderson distributed performance-enhancing drugs” but that they shouldn’t infer “the defendant engaged in certain conduct” just because other players did. Bonds, in a gray suit, white shirt and gray tie, watched from the defense table, taking notes and occasionally looking to see how jurors reacted. He didn’t have any interactions with the players. As Jason walked out after 36 minutes of testimony, he went past Jeremy, who was on his way toward the witness stand. As Jeremy left a half-hour later, he smiled and gave a pat on the back to Benard, who was on the way in. Bonds’ agent, Jeff Borris, attended the trial for the first time

course, you would never read about those figures. The organization likes to pretend that the tournament exists solely for the purpose of picking a national champion, ignoring the fact that millions of people around the nation wager a bit of their paychecks on the tournament in one way or another. But they do, and for many they’ve become an annual rite of spring. Technically, the office pools and online contests are gambling — with some of them offering big winnings — but even the strident antigambling types at the NCAA mostly keep silent about what drives a big

The Fiesta Bowl, however, is greater than a few individuals; it is the product of thousands of dedicated volunteers and exemplary employees who work tirelessly and care so deeply about the Fiesta Bowl and all it does for the state of Arizona.”

Barry Bonds trial developments SAN FRANCISCO — What happened Tuesday at the Barry Bonds trial on day 6: THE WITNESSES: Barry Sample, director of science and technology, Quest Diagnostics (discussed processing of Bonds’ 2003 drug tests as part of Major League Baseball’s survey); Dale Kennedy, a subcontractor for Comprehensive Drug Testing (who testified about collecting the samples); former Giants head athletic trainer Stan Conte; and three current and former players: 2000 AL MVP Jason Giambi; Jeremy Giambi; and Marvin Benard. PROSECUTION POINTS: The Giambi brothers and Benard testified they understood the substances they received from Greg Anderson were steroids and human growth hormone. Conte testified Bonds added significant muscle mass before the 2000 season and he noticed acne on the slugger’s back. DEFENSE POINTS: Defense lawyer Cristina Arguedas got Jason Giambi to agree he told a grand jury in 2003 that Anderson told him “the clear” and “the cream,” which in 2002 were undetectable by tests, were substances that had steroid-like effects without actually being steroids. She got Jeremy Giambi to say Anderson told him “the clear” was “chemically or molecularly altered steroids or alternatives to steroids.” QUOTE OF THE DAY: Jason Giambi on what Greg Anderson said after Giambi gave Anderson blood that showed positive for the steroid Deca-Durabolin: “‘He told me that would trip the Major League Baseball test, and I should look into taking something else. ... He said he would send me a package of things that I needed.”

and watched from the Bonds family row. Jeremy Giambi, tieless in a blue sports jacket and gray crewneck sweater, said he met Anderson only once but they spoke by telephone several times. When Jason got back from Japan, he told his brother about Anderson. “He had said he had access to an undetectable alternative steroid,” Jeremy Giambi remembered Anderson saying. Like his brother, Jeremy had his blood tested for Anderson. “He had said that I had some deficiencies in a few categories, and also that he had access to some PEDs and thought it would be a good idea to go on and use these PEDs,” said Jeremy, who played for four major league teams from 1998-2003. portion of the tournament’s popularity. They don’t worry about such things in the sports books, where Kentucky should draw plenty of action as the new favorite to win it all. VCU, the underdog in all five of its wins, should also be a popular pick as a 21⁄2-point dog to Butler. The Rams won’t be as popular behind the counter at the Las Vegas Hilton, though, if only because Kornegay cringes at the thought of paying out $50,000 on a $10 bet. “I was a Kansas fan yesterday,” he said. “And I’ll be rooting for Butler on Saturday.” Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

Mets’ Bay could start season on DL The Associated Press

VIERA, Fla. — New York Mets left fielder Jason Bay was scratched from Tuesday’s lineup against Washington because of discomfort in his rib cage, and the team acknowledged there was a chance he would start the season on the disabled list. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Bay appeared to have a strained muscle. He did not play Saturday because of a stiff back and was set to return to the field Monday, but the game was rained out. Alderson said the team did not think the rib cage and back ailments were related. “But he hasn’t been examined yet by an orthopedist,” Alderson said. Bay planned to return to the Mets’ spring training base in Port St. Lucie to be checked Tuesday afternoon. The Mets have until 11 a.m. Thursday to make a roster move if he needs to go on the DL. “It’s a possibility, of course, this late in spring, but we’ll wait and see what happens and keep following it the next couple days until we get a feel for what it actually is and how it’s progressing,” Alderson said. “We’ll probably have a move or two we won’t make until the very end.” Bay missed the final two months last season because of a concussion. The Mets still aren’t

Mets 8, Nationals 2 VIERA, Fla. — Carlos Beltran returned to the Mets’ lineup with a hit and a sliding catch in right field. Beltran had not played in a major league spring training game for three weeks because of tendinitis in his left knee. The All-Star singled in the first inning and later retired Jerry Hairston Jr. with a nice grab down the line. David Wright hit a three-run homer for New York. Outfielder Jason Bay was a late scratch for the Mets because of discomfort in left rib cage.

Royals 3, White Sox 2 SURPRISE, Ariz. — Bruce Chen pitched five solid innings, Brayan Pena hit a two-run homer and Kansas City earned its sixth straight victory. Chen allowed one run — Adam Dunn’s first-inning homer — and four hits. The veteran left-hander, who won 12 games for the Royals last season, walked four and struck out four. The White Sox scored another run in the sixth when rookie reliever Jeremy Jeffress walked three, including one with the bases loaded, and had a wild pitch. Jeffress was acquired from Milwaukee in the Zack Greinke deal.

ariners 7, Rockies 2 SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.— Ryan Langerhans delivered a basesloaded triple, Jack Cust hit a two-run homer and Seattle ended its stay in Arizona with a victory. Miguel Olivo added two hits for the Mariners, who play a final exhibition game at Dodger Stadium before opening the season in Oakland on Friday.

Reds 8, Indians 3 GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Bronson Arroyo shook off the effects of mononucleosis to pitch into the seventh inning for Cincinnati. Arroyo allowed six hits over 6 1-3 innings, including two solo homers by Shin-Soo Choo. That’s nothing new. The Indians right fielder is a .500 (6 for 12) hitter in his career against Arroyo, including four homers.

Buchholz allowed one run, struck out three and walked two in his final spring start. Gonzalez hit his second homer in the fourth. Rays right-hander Wade Davis also pitched four effective innings, yielding one run and five hits. He struck out one and walked one.

Harang gave up eight runs, six earned, and 11 hits in 5 2-3 innings.

PHILADELPHIA — Phillies closer Brad Lidge is expected to miss three to six weeks after an MRI exam Tuesday showed he has a strained right shoulder. Philadelphia general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said the reliever will not need surgery to fix the problem, deemed a posterior rotator cuff strain. Lidge will start the season on the disabled list. The NL East champions open at home Friday against Houston. “It’s an issue obviously when you lose your closer,” Amaro said. “It’s not good news.” Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said prior to Tuesday night’s exhibition game against Pittsburgh that Jose Contreras likely would begin as the team’s closer. Setup man Ryan Madson is another option for Manuel. Lidge had issues with his velocity during spring training. Last season, he was 1-1 with a 2.96 ERA while converting 27 saves in 32 chances.

TAMPA, Fla. — Alex Rodriguez drove in his 15th run of the exhibition season with a base-loaded walk, Freddy Garcia allowed one run in 4 2-3 innings and the New York Yankees beat the Detroit Tigers 2-1 Tuesday. Detroit and New York open the regular season Thursday at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees still have several decisions to make, including who will be the leadoff hitter in some games. Manager Joe Girardi said Derek Jeter will bat first against left-handed starters — that could leave Brett Gardner to lead off against righties. A-Rod drew the RBI walk off Rick Porcello during the third. Garcia, the Yankees’ fifth starter, gave up four hits and struck out three. Porcello allowed one run and four hits over 5 1-3 innings.

The club is waiting on more test results due back by the end of the week before the severity can be determined. “It does appear there are stomach and colon issues that will keep him out for a while, and we don’t know the extent of either of those, but we do think it will keep him out for a while based on the medication he’ll have to take,” Alderson said. Paulino is suspended through the first eight games of the season anyway as he finishes out a 50-game suspension from last year, related to use of performance-enhancing drugs. Mike Nickeas will serve as Josh Thole’s backup until Paulino returns. The Mets have nearly rounded out their opening day roster, with some room for changes if Bay needs to go on the disabled list. Alderson announced Tuesday that Blaine Boyer has earned the final bullpen spot, and the Mets have asked 38-year-old reliever Jason Isringhausen to stay behind in extended spring training for a couple of weeks. Pitcher Manny Acosta has been designated for assignment.

Fed to release loan list The Federal Reserve plans to release documents on Thursday identifying financial companies that received Fed loans to survive the financial crisis. The central bank is being forced to take the action because commercial banks had lost a court battle to keep the information private. The Fed had argued that releasing the names of banks that drew the emergency loans could cause a run on them, defeating the purpose of the program.

Aaron’s to create jobs Lease-to-own retailer Aaron’s Inc. said Tuesday that it plans to create almost 1,000 jobs in the U.S. and Canada this year. The company, which sells and leases residential furniture, consumer electronics, home appliances and accessories, said it has added 50 workers so far this year and is on schedule to hire 500 more based on current store opening plans. An additional 75 franchised stores is expected to create about 400 jobs. Last month Aaron’s reported its fourth-quarter net income climbed 23 percent and said demand for its basic home furnishings remains strong even in a challenging business environment. Aaron’s, based in Atlanta, has more than 1,800 company-run and franchised stores in 48 states and Canada including those in Kingston, Hazleton, Scranton and Bloomsburg.

Toys R Us to pay $1.3M The Federal Trade Commission said Tuesday that Toys R Us, the largest U.S. toy retailer, agreed to pay $1.3 million to settle civil charges that it violated an agency order barring it from discussing its discount-chain competitors with its suppliers. The FTC said between 1999 and 2010, Toys R Us violated the order by complaining via its Babies R Us subsidiary to several suppliers about the discounts other retailers were giving on baby products and requesting information about how companies supplied products to discounters. The 1998 order came about after the FTC found Toys R Us used its position as the top U.S. toy retailer to stop toy makers from selling some toys to warehouse clubs. That has not happened since, but the FTC said that Toys R Us did not comply with other parts of the 1998 order. Toys R Us and Babies R Us have stores in Wilkes-Barre.

Disaster tab: $218B G

The Associated Press

ENEVA — The economic cost of natural and man-made disasters jumped threefold to $218 billion in 2010 from $68 billion the previous year, with earthquakes the main cause of death and destruction, insurer Swiss Reinsurance Co. said Tuesday. About 304,000 people died in disasters last year, a sharp rise from 15,000 in 2009. Haiti’s earthquake alone claimed 222,000 lives, while almost 56,000 people were killed by Russia’s summer heatwave and over 6,200 people died from floods in China and Pakistan. The Zurich-based company said insurers bore $43 billion of the cost of disasters last year, a 60 percent year-on-year increase. The earthquakes in Chile and New Zealand had insured losses of over $12 bil-

The only man-made catastrophe to make the costliest top 10 was the Deepwater Horizon explosion that caused a massive oil spill in the Gulf. lion, it said. Eight other disasters, including storms in the United States, Germany, France and Australia cost insurers more than $1 billion last year. The only man-made catastrophe to make the costliest top ten was the Deepwater Horizon explosion that caused a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. In its annual report, Swiss Re predicted that losses from recent quakes in New Zealand and Japan will make 2011another expensive year for insurers.

“Although no long-term trend of increasing global earthquake activity has emerged, the number of fatalities and insured losses from earthquakes are on the rise,” Balz Grollimund, one of the report’s authors, was quoted as saying. “The main reasons are population growth, the higher number of people living in urban areas as well as rising wealth and rapidly increasing exposures.” With his industry’s interests in mind, Swiss Re’s chief economist Thomas Hess also noted that many developing countries have poor disaster insurance coverage. Some of the new-found wealth in countries like China should be used to improve emergency preparedness and insurance protection against extreme weather events such as flooding, he said.

Firm wins for its smartphone apps By DAWN DRUMIN Times Leader Correspondent

Local programming firm Appalachian Apps has won first place and a $10,000 prize in the open category of an AT&T contest for their smartphone application “Rah Digga’s Straight Spittin.” AT&T’s OpenCall contest was held in Orlando, Fla., last week at the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA)Wireless 2011 mobile device conference.

The discount retailer is expected to have a strong second-quarter earnings report. Two weeks ago, Family Dollar raised its forecast for the quarter above the expectations of financial analysts. The company said its revenue was hurt by bad weather in January, then helped by better weather in February. Investors will want to know if the company has more to say about its rejection of a $7 billion buyout offer from investor Nelson Peltz’s Trian Fund.

The Agriculture Department’s report on the prices farmers received for their crops during March will show how fast inflation is rising at the nation’s farms. Food makers and supermarkets have been raising prices because ingredients are more expensive, and that has hurt consumers’ confidence about the economy. The report will look at what farmers received for crops including grains, soybeans, fruits and vegetables, livestock and cotton. Prices rose an average of 2.4 percent in February.

Developing countries pose risk By PAUL WISEMAN AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON — The world’s biggest economies are recovering from the Great Recession at troublesome speeds: too fast or too slow. China, India and other major developing countries quickly returned to breakneck rates of growth after escaping the worst of the economic downturn in 2008 and 2009. Their rapid recoveries showed for the first time that emerging economies have grown big and strong enough to thrive independently while the United States and other rich countries struggle. And today, to an unprecedenRapid growth ted degree, the in the develdeveloping oping world is world is drivpulling jobs ing the global recovery, inand investstead of relying ment from the on the United U.S. and other States for ecorich countries. nomic leadership as it used to. This picture emerges from The Associated Press’ new Global Economy Tracker, a quarterly analysis of 22 countries that account for more than 80 percent of the world’s economic output. The developing world’s share of global economic output has risen from 18 percent in 1980 to 26 percent last year, the World Bank says. So growth in emerging markets now has a far bigger effect on the world’s economic performance. Leading the transformation is China, which last year replaced Japan as the world’s second-biggest economy. Japan, after more than a decade of stagnation, is struggling again in the aftermath of the earthquake and nuclear disaster that struck earlier this month. Rapid growth in emerging economies has lifted hundreds of millions of people out of poverty and created vast consumer markets for U.S. goods and services. At the same time, “this two-track world poses some unusual risks,” warns Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz of Columbia University. He and others fear that too much money flowing to developing economies is driving up commodity prices and inflating dangerous bubbles in emerging market stocks and housing prices. Rapid growth in the developing world is also pulling jobs and investment from the United States and other rich countries. And it’s fanning international disputes over trade and currencies. The AP Global Economy Tracker found that: • The fastest-growing countries — China, India, Indonesia — are all in the developing world. The slowest are all European: Spain, Italy and Britain. The United States ranks 12th among the 20 largest economies plus Argentina and South Africa. • Speedy growth is triggering inflation in emerging countries. The countries where consumer prices rose the most last year were Argentina, India and Russia. • High unemployment is plaguing rich countries. At the end of 2010, unemployment was more than 20 percent in Spain, 9.6 percent in the European Union as a whole and 9.4 percent in the United States. (The U.S. rate fell to 9 percent in January and 8.9 percent in February). In contrast, the unemployment rate was 5.3 percent in Brazil.

Finding health care buys Investing in health care: Part 2 of a two-part series

There’s a myth that health care stocks are a bad buy because big drug companies are struggling with a shortage of new products. Health care is a broad and diverse industry. And financial analysts say two types of companies look attractive: those that help lower the cost of medical care and those that sell unique products. Here are three analyst favorites: TUESDAY CLOSE

Alere makes diagnostic products like tests for HIV and congestive heart failure that consumers can use at home. That means they visit doctors less often, and that lowers the cost of their care. Alere’s earnings are expected to rise 3 percent this year, but analysts expect 13 percent in 2012. The stock has fallen 7 percent during the last year, but analysts expect it to rise 20 percent over the next year.

Analysts like Zoll because it makes a defibrillator that’s worn as a vest. The LifeVest is designed to help patients after a heart attack and before they can have bypass surgery or a permanent defibrillator implanted. The product’s revenue rose 61 percent to $71 million in 2010. Zoll’s earnings rose 93 percent. That has sent the stock up 66 percent during the last year. The S&P 500 is up 12 percent. Analysts believe Zoll can rise another 21 percent over the next year.

Today's sunny morning will soon give way to high, thin stratus clouds which may form a ring around the sun, a sign that rain or snow is coming. And indeed some will arrive early tonight, but only a small amount is likely, most of which will melt upon contact with the pavement. A little rain could mix in as well at the start. By Thursday morning expect to see less than 2 inches of new snow. Another storm along the coast could bring more snow Thursday night and Friday morning. There may be enough then to impact travel, especially in higher elevations. Colder than normal temperatures will continue through the weekend. - Tom Clark

DAVID HOWE CORK RESTAURANT

Begin spring with lighter, spicier flavors

SPRING IS IN THE AIR, and our thoughts are on lighter, spicier foods. I’ve always loved Asian cuisine because it is so full of flavor. This recipe is a favorite, as it blends various flavors and textures for a delicious, Asian-inspired meal. It’s easy to prepare and will impress your family and guests with its great presentation and taste. Not a fan of salmon? The basting sauce also will work well with chicken. Steamed broccoli spears are a nice complement and, if you’re looking for a good wine to pair with this dish, try a nice dry Riesling, Gewurztraminer or rosé. Many Viogniers and Champagnes also will work well. •••

ASIAN-STYLE SALMON

By SUSAN M. SELASKY

INGREDIENTS: 2 salmon portions, 8 ounces each fried wonton slices steamed broccoli spears BASTING SAUCE: 4 ounces teriyaki 1 teaspoon sesame oil 1 cup hoisin barbecue sauce 4 ounces chopped green onions 2 ounces chopped roasted peanuts 1/3 cup soy sauce Mix sauce ingredients well in a glass mixing bowl. Spray grill with non-stick spray and grill salmon for approximately 1 minute on both sides. Continue cooking at 375 for approximately 15 minutes or until you’ve reached your desired temperature. Begin basting with the sauce right before you put the salmon in the oven. Cover salmon with remaining sauce 5 minutes out. When salmon is done, plate and pour remaining sauce from oven onto the salmon. Top with a nice pile of fried wonton strips and sprinkle a bit of green onion on top for garnish as well. Serve with the steamed broccoli spears.

arch and April wouldn’t be the same without the Lenten fish fries served up at many neighborhood churches, clubs and organizations, such as the Knights of Columbus. • They’re a big draw for hundreds of people. Tim Huber has been running the Friday fish fry at the United Methodist Church in Royal Oak, Mich., for 14 years. At each of the church’s three fish fries so far this year, more than 300 people have been served, Huber says.

“As fast as it comes out of the oven or deep-fryer, it’s on their plate,” he says. “No one has to wait more than half an hour. “We buy absolutely only the best fish you can buy,” says Huber, a church member and fish broker. “We serve frozen skin-on Icelandic baby cod, haddock and walleye.” If you want to have your own, check out these recipes for beer-battered fish and coleslaw:

•••

BEER-BATTERED COD Serves: 4 Preparation time: 20 minutes Total time: 45 minutes Batter: 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 egg, separated 12 oz. beer 1 tablespoon vegetable oil Oil for deep frying

Fish: 2 pounds cod fillets, rinsed, patted dry Flour for dredging Salt and pepper or an all-purpose seasoning, optional Tartar sauce, optional ••• In a large bowl, sift together the flour and salt; make a well in the center. Add the egg yolk and half of the beer; whisk, gradually drawing in the flour to form a smooth See FISH, Page 2C

This Asian-inspired salmon dish was prepared by David Howe at Cork restaurant in Wilkes-Barre.

One extra benefit of a NEPA fish fry is it often includes potato pancakes, a regional favorite.

The fry baskets at Good Shepherd Polish National Catholic Church in Plymouth keep the goods - fish and fries - in a holding pattern.

Broccoli Cheese Chicken is Mmm-mmm good By KATHY SWEETRA ksweetra@timesleader.com

Here you go, again. Couldn’t get out of the office on time; traffic was insane; someone has basketball practice, and you have a PTA meeting. Somehow you need to get a hot meal on the table. I’ve been there way too many times. What to do? Well, with apologies to all the gourmet cooks out there, I have been known to rely on good, old-fashioned Campbell’s soup recipes. Unlike some of those recipes you see in magazines that require a lot of prep time, these meals really are

fast and easy; and, more important, picky eaters seem to like them. Who has time to coax a reluctant child to eat on days like this? Also, the portions can usually be stretched for any surprise guests, a constant phenomenon at my house. Considering I only have one child, it always amazed me that I was usually cooking for at least four people. Go figure. Dozens of recipes are available using all kinds of Campbell’s soups, but this broccolicheese chicken has been a staple at my house for years. I usually serve it over rice boiled with

chicken bouillon cubes to make it more of a pseudo-Chinese meal. You can make as much rice as you need, hence the larger quantities, if necessary. I also use boneless chicken tenders instead of the breast halves if I’m in a real hurry. Every minute counts, so not having to cut up the breasts can be a real time-saver. I also add more water than called for in the recipe (usually about threequarters of a can) to have a better consistency for pouring over the rice. So take a deep breath and get started on this tasty meal that

should only take you about 30 minutes to prepare: •••

EVERYDAY BROCCOLI CHEESE CHICKEN Ingredients: 1 tbsp. butter or margarine 1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breast halves 1 can Campbell’s Broccoli Cheese Soup 1/3 cup water or milk 1/8 tsp. pepper 2 cups broccoli florets In skillet over medium heat, in hot butter or margarine, cook chicken 10 minutes or until browned on both sides. Spoon off fat.

FOTOLIA.COM PHOTO

Stir in soup, water and pepper. Heat to boiling. Add broccoli. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 10 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and broccoli is done, stirring occasionally. Note: Start boiling water for the

rice at the same time you start the chicken. That way everything should get done at the same time (always a plus). Also, this recipe is supposed to make four servings, but you can add extra meat and broccoli, if desired.

paste. Stir in the remaining beer and the oil; do not overmix. Cover and let stand for 15 to 30 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the oil for deepfrying (you’ll need at least 8 cups) to 375 degrees. Cut the cod fillets into 4-inch pieces. Beat the egg white until very foamy and fold it into the batter. Place the flour in a pie plate or shallow dish and season with salt, pepper or all-purpose seasoning. Working in batches, dredge the fish pieces with flour, shaking to remove the excess. Dip a piece into the batter and place in the hot oil. Fry about 4 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish or until golden brown and crisp. Remove and drain well on paper towels; keep warm. Repeat with remaining pieces of fish. Serve with tartar sauce, if desired, and coleslaw. Adapted from “Anne Willian’s Cook it Right” by Anne Willian (Readers Digest, $29.95).

Lonely bluegrass fan ready to make music with a new woman Dear Abby: I have been married for 21 years, and the past eight or 10 of them haven’t been good. I have tried to get my wife to go camping, out to dinner or to bluegrass concerts we both love. I can’t convince her to do any of these things with me. But when her sister calls wanting her to go somewhere, she’s gone and stays out all day. About two years ago I started going out alone to clubs that feature bluegrass music on Fridays and Saturdays. I met a wonderful lady at one of them and we have gotten close. I have told her I love her. We have a lot in common, and she cares for me, too. I have not been unfaithful to my wife (yet),

DEAR ABBY ADVICE but I don’t know how much more I can handle. I am lonely and miserable. Abby, I don’t know what to do. Please advise before I do something stupid. I’m an avid reader of your column and I trust your advice. — Tempted Down South Dear Tempted: Marriage is like a garden. If it isn’t tended and fertilized occasionally, it withers. It appears you and your wife stopped communicating not long after your 10th anniversary. Sneaking around is not the answer

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

to your problem. It’s unfair to your wife and to the woman you say you love. So man up and offer your wife the option of intensive marriage counseling. Dear Abby: I have been married to a wonderful guy for four years, and I’m fortunate to have nice and caring inlaws. My only issue with them is the personal questions they ask — like how much money people make. Abby, they know exactly how much their children make, as well as the amount of their son-in-law’s salary. Once I’m out of graduate school and settled into my career, I know they will ask me. I feel my finances are my personal business and no one else’s — especially if my husband and I are living

CRYPTOQUOTE

comfortably. How do I handle the situation when my in-laws ask me about my income? — Not Quoting Figures Dear Not Quoting: Start now and tell your husband how you feel about questions about how much people earn. That way he’ll be less inclined to “spill” when his parents start pumping him for the information. When they ask you, say that you are not comfortable with that question because you feel it is too personal. Smile when you say it. Dear Abby: I have been estranged from our grandchildren for nine years. One of them is now 18 and we would like to reach out and contact her, but have no idea how to do it. We

don’t know what caused the estrangement with her parents, but we have never stopped loving our grandchildren. How do you contact someone who isn’t in the phone book, is of age and across the country? — Bonney Jean in Hawaii Dear Bonney: My heart goes out to you in this — I’m sorry to say — not uncommon predicament. A way to locate your granddaughter would be to do it via a Google search. I wish you luck. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will make a bigger effort to try to understand where someone dear to you is coming from. Learning more about his or her interests will help you gain the insight you desire. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A new person will arouse your curiosity. A bit of casual research is in order. You’ll learn the most from a Sagittarius or Gemini who is intrigued with the subject. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Moods are fleeting, but email is forever — at least it has the potential to be, as once you hit that “send” button, there’s no going back. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll perform as an individual with all eyes on you and will gain the acceptance of your audience. This personal win will bolster your confidence and give you the motivation to continue to grow. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You prefer to do business where there is a strong sense of stability and tradition around matters of finance. You will connect with those who share your values and make a deal. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have many friends, and yet you may not get the kind of attention you need from them now. Think about the relationship you’d really like. Once you start thinking about this, you will magnetically draw it to yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Sit back and relax because today will be a smooth ride. Your preparation will pay off, your good karma will come back around, and you’ll be just plain lucky.

MINUTE MAZE JUMBLE BY MICHEAL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

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

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You will communicate masterfully. Your word choices put others at ease. For instance, instead of saying “no problem,” which has negative connotations, you’ll say “my pleasure,” which creates good feelings. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The presentation of an idea will sell it, whether the idea is a good one or not. A pleasant appearance drives the demand. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You know a number of ways to make others feel better. You will boost someone’s mood with your kind words. Afford yourself the same kindness by engaging in positive self-talk. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You like people who might be classified as “go getters” as long as what they are going to get benefits you, too. Having common interests will help you tolerate the naturally opportunistic. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will be successful at selling a product or service, just as soon as you can see the product or service from the customer’s point of view. Your strongly empathic nature makes this easy for you. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 30). Your year is filled with friends, pleasures and amusements that balance well with your professional and family life. Next month a hobby connects you in business. In June, you will blossom as an inspired teacher and/or artist and will be paid well for your expertise. Pisces and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 2, 14, 49 and 18.
