WILKES-BARRE’S CELLPHONE BAN

Obscure law could Not making a connection aid police Meanwhile, Luzerne County’s DA eyes seeking an injunction like Lackawanna County’s against the substance in Scranton. By EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com

First reported at

3:24 KINGSTON – There might be a little-known law p.m. timesleader.com that may result in people getting charged for using bath salts. While police agencies are dealing with ancillary crimes of bath salts users, such as disorderly conduct, Kingston police successfully secured a conviction when a man pleaded guilty to illegally using solvents or noxious substances. A review of court records show it appears to be the first bath salts conviction in Luzerne County. Meanwhile, Luzerne County District Attorney Jacqueline Musto Carroll said Thursday she is exploring a petition that would seek a court injunction to ban the sale of bath salts by retailers, similar to a court injunction imposed in Lackawanna County on Wednesday. “I’m reaching out to police chiefs to provide us See SALTS, Page 7A

Law on books, but enforcement is open question By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – It’s been almost a year since City Council approved an ordinance that bans the use of cell phones while driving. So how many citations have been issued? “I really don’t know,” said Kathy Kane, chairwoman of council and the person who pushed for the ordinance. “I can’t get any answers on that. Nobody gives me any answers. I

don’t think we’ve cited anybody. It seems to me that more and more people are using their cell phones and driving, so I don’t think we are enforcing it.” Kane has been leading the effort to convince legislators to enact a statewide law addressing the issue. She said she has read a lot of statistics that show a high incidence of accidents caused by talking or texting on cell phones while driving. “I’ve noticed more people aren’t

Airport backs plan for connector road

The bi-county board approves sending a request to federal authorities. By ANDREW M. SEDER aseder@timesleader.com

PITTSTON TWP. – After sitting on the tarmac for two decades, a plan for an .85-mile road through Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport property connecting several industrial parks to Interstate 81 has been given permission to move to the runway. The plan can’t take flight just yet, however, as it still needs approval from the Federal Aviation Administration. At a special meeting of the bicounty airport board on Thursday, the board voted 5-0 to send an application for an easement to the FAA. The action came after numerous months of requests and presentations by Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and other officials who sought the approval. Time after time the board – made up of the commissioners from Lackawanna and Luzerne counties – voiced concerns about the project and a perceived lack of benefit for the airport. Chief among the concerns was that by building the connector road, it would entice traffic to head through the airport’s property to get to I-81, especially trucks going to and from the multiple industrial parks in Jenkins and Pittston townships. Economic development officials from the Greater Pittston Chamber of Commerce and the industrial parks said the project

is needed for economic development, to which board members said they understood and supported that but were tasked with the well-being of the airport and its customers. What changed on Thursday were two things. One was details of work being done that would allow for traffic coming in and out of the CenterPoint Trade and Commerce Park to head to I-81 via Route 315 rather than using the connector road. The other was promise of support by state Rep. Mike Carroll for a turnpike interchange near the airport and support from Dupont and Jenkins Township to apply for grants for future road projects near the airport. Luzerne County Commissioner Steve Urban said those proposals helped sway him from the no side to the yes side. And he said he will expect results. He also noted that Thursday’s action is not the last step. “The vote (Thursday) was just to ask the FAA,” Urban said. Luzerne County Commissioner Maryanne Petrilla said she came to Thursday’s meeting expecting to hold further discussions on the project. But as the discussion went deeper, it became apparent there was enough support to take a vote, she said. Petrilla said the application made to the FAA should take into account the unanimous vote and the strong support from the local business community, PennDOT and the board. Airport Director Barry J. Centini cautioned that the FAA will ask the same questions the board has been, chiefly, “What is the benefit to the airport?”

trict is facing a potential $7.9 million deficit. Namey said he has already begun discussions with administrators looking for ways to trim expenses and is considering a pay freeze as suggested by the governor, as well as cutting supply budgets to the bone and even eliminating staff positions by attrition or furlough. A combination of expected and unexpected changes to the proposed state budget account for a large share of the deficit, Przywara said. District officials did know the district could lose nearly $3 million in state funding that was essentially a passthrough of federal stimulus dollars, he said, but was not anticipating losing more than $972,000 in reimbursement for charter school expenses or another $913,693 in accountability block grants that the district used to start the full-day kindergarten program. Also slashed from the state budget was almost $30,000 in funding for dual enrollment, which allows high school students to take college courses. All told, the proposed cuts in funding would cost the district $4.2 million. In addition, Przywara said, the recently completed property tax reassessments reduced the assessed value of properties in the district by a total of $21.3 million, costing the district $283,558 in lost tax revenue. The district has also received a memo stating the cost for employee health insurance will increase by 17 percent next year, Przywara said. He’s also estimated that a provision of the new federal health care law that requires employers to cover adult children up to age 26 on their parents’ policies will cost the district $300,000, bringing the total estimated increase for health care to $2.2 million. Added to an estimated increase of $1.2 million for contracted salaries, the total gap in the preliminary budget is $7,926,391, Przywara said. The district will formally bring the matter to the collective bargaining unit at an April 7 meeting, he said, and he is hopeful that staff will come to see the hard choices the district is facing. The board agreed to hold another budget discussion open to the public within two to three weeks.

City no longer allowed to let civilians monitor security camera system

State upholds W-B cop grievance

By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – The Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board has determined Wilkes-Barre committed an unfair labor practice when it assigned civilians to monitor a camera system designed to capture criminal activity. The ruling, issued March 25 by a hearing examiner, orders the city to immediately remove civilians employed by Legion Security from the video monitoring rooms and to return the duty of monitoring the cameras exclusively to police officers. The decision prompted Hawkeye Security Systems, the nonprofit company formed to handle the camera system, to suspend its contract with Legion Security on Wednesday, said Trent

see it that way. It alleged the new policy also was an unfair practice because the Legion employees, who were in the monitoring room, would occasionally alert the officer if they happened to notice suspicious activity on a camera. Jack Marino, the PLRB hearing officer, sided with the police on both issues. In his opinion, Marino said there was no question that the city had allowed Legion employees to assume surveillance duties from November 2009 up till Feb. 15, 2010, without attempting to bargain with the union regarding the matter. That constituted an unfair labor practice, he said. See CAMERAS, Page 7A

The state Supreme Court has denied former Luzerne County Judge Ann Lokuta’s request to reconsider its decision that upheld her removal from the bench. The high court issued a one-sentence order on Wednesday denying the request. It did not file an opinion detailing its reasons. Lokuta had asked Lokuta the court to reconsider its Jan. 14 decision that upheld the state Court of Judicial Discipline’s Dec. 9, 2008, ruling that ended her 17-year judicial career.

DALLAS TWP. – Dallas School District is sending letters to parents in response to growing rumors that asbestos will be removed from the soon-tobe-razed high school before classes end in June. The letter confirms what teachers have known for days – that exterior cement panels containing asbestos will be removed in the waning weeks of May – but stresses the procedure and the panels are safe. For starters, the letter notes, the work will be done only after school and on weekends, and strictly outside. All vents or windows will be sealed before any nearby work starts. The district will also vacuum the vents before and after work, and monitor for asbestos “constantly,” said Ted Corbett, senior projects manager at TCI environmental services, a firm hired by the district to make sure all environmental work meets legal mandates. “I have two children in that school,” Corbett said, stressing the district has

gone “above and beyond” in assuring public safety. The panels in question are decorative, not structural. They line the underside of eaves that gird the building. While they are concrete, the concrete contains asbestos, a naturally occurring material that can cause serious health problems if broken into fine particles and inhaled, though the risk is higher with prolonged exposure. The panels were installed prior to

government regulation of asbestos, which had often been used in construction materials to increase “durability and weather resistance,” Corbett said, and as a fire retardant. The asbestos in the panels is “nonfriable,” meaning it is locked into the concrete and not easily broken into small enough particles to pose any risk. Corbett said the only way the panSee ASBESTOS , Page 7A

Instead, both parties are focusing on educating voters about the candidates. The county’s Republican organization will soon publicly release a voter guide showing the 16 Republican council contenders’ responses to a series of questions about their experiences and stances on county government, said party Chairman Terry Casey. “We think it’s important that people understand the qualifications and intentions of those running for those seats,” Casey said. The Democrats will hold a public forum on April 11 that will allow the 33 Democratic council contenders to briefly speak about their backgrounds and positions on county government, said party Chairwoman Kathy Kane. “It will give everybody a chance to at least get a snapshot of who they are,” Kane said, noting she will soon announce the forum time and location. Because of the number of candidates, each will have about two minutes, she said. Neither political party is endorsing a slate in the race for six county Court of Common Pleas judicial seats. Sixteen candidates – four Republicans and 12 Democrats – have crossfiled to run on both party tickets in the primary. The 12 Democratic judicial candidates will be invited to speak at the April 11 forum, Kane said. Casey expects most Republicans will support the party’s four judicial contenders along with two Democrats of their individual preference. The four Republican judicial candidates are Joseph F. Saporito Jr., Dick Hughes, James L. McMonagle and Jim Haggerty. The Democratic executive committee decided to endorse only one candidate in the primary – Jackie Musto Carroll for district attorney – because she is an incumbent and has no opposition, Kane said. Kane and Casey said their parties will rally behind the contenders who survive the primary. In the county council race, voters from each political party will choose 11 candidates to advance to the November general. Those 22 will then compete for the 11 council seats. Independent and third-party candidates may also get on the ballot after the primary if they secure nearly 1,000 nomination signatures. The chosen 11 will take office in January and oversee the county’s historic switch to a home rule government system.

After ruling, agency will scale back veterans project, attorney says By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER tmorgan@timesleader.com

EDWARDSVILLE – Catholic Social Services has lost a court challenge of a ruling that denied a zoning variance for a veterans housing complex at the former St. Hedwig’s Church property, but the decision won’t scuttle the project, an attorney for the agency said. The state Commonwealth Court on Thursday said the Edwardsville Zoning Board acted properly when it denied the variance for the proposed complex,

which straddles land located in Edwardsville and Kingston. The ruling means CSS cannot build on any portion of the complex on property that is located in Edwardsville. It is permitted to build on the land that is located in Kingston, which approved the project in 2009, said Jamie Hailstone, attorney for the CSS. Hailstone said CSS had initially planned to build a 30-unit complex, but the court ruling means it will now have to be reduced to 14 units, all of which will be located in Kingston. “We’re still going ahead with

the project, just on a smaller scale,” Hailstone said. The proposed project would cater to war veterans, including some with disabilities, and their families. It generated controversy among residents of Edwardsville, who expressed concerns at a zoning hearing in May 2009 that it would house persons with psychological and/or substance abuse problems. The Edwardsville zoning board denied the request for a variance, which was required because multi-family units are not permitted in a residential dis-

trict. The board determined CSS had failed to meet the requirements for a variance, which state the applicant must show it would suffer an unnecessary hardship. CSS appealed that ruling to Luzerne County Court, which upheld the board’s decision. The agency then appealed to Commonwealth Court. In its ruling, the Commonwealth Court agreed that CSS had not met the standard set for obtaining a variance. The court noted that to establish a hardship the applicant must show there was no other use for the property

or conforming the property to a permitted use would be cost-prohibitive. In this case, the court stated an official from CSS had testified the agency could locate the complex solely within Kingston, which does permit multi-family units in a residential district, but opted not to do so for “aesthetic reasons.” “An applicant seeking a variance must demonstrate that an unnecessary hardship will result in the variance is denied ... CSS clearly did not meet its burden,” the court said.

Gadhafi loyalist quits job

The new blow to the Libyan regime comes a day after the foreign minister flees.

Spring break alive and well for some

TRIPOLI, Libya — Moammar Gadhafi struck a defiant stance Thursday after two high-profile defections from his regime, saying the Western leaders who have decimated his military with airstrikes should resign immediately. Gadhafi’s message was undercut by its delivery — a scroll across the bottom of

state TV as he remained out of sight. The White House said the strongman’s inner circle was clearly crumbling with the loss of Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa, who flew from Tunisia to England on Wednesday. Ali Abdessalam Treki, a former foreign minister and U.N. General Assembly president, announced his departure on several opposition websites the next day. Gadhafi attempted to appear undaunted, accusing the leaders of the countries attacking his forces of being “affected by power madness.” His government’s forces re-

took the town of Brega. The rebels said they were taking heart from the departures in Gadhafi’s inner circle. The U.S. has ruled out using ground troops in Libya but it is considering providing arms.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates, however, told Congress on Thursday the U.S. still knows little about the rebels, and that if anyone arms and trains them it should be some other country.

FERRARO LAID TO REST

DAMASCUS, SYRIA

Civilian deaths to be probed a massive protest movement F acing demanding reform, Syria’s presi-

dent set up committees Thursday to look into the deaths of civilians during nearly two weeks of unrest and replacing decades-old emergency laws. The moves appear to be a carefully designed attempt by President Bashar Assad to head off massive protests planned for today while showing he will not be pressured to implement reform — instead, he will make changes at his own pace. On Wednesday, he dashed expectations that he would announce sweeping changes, instead blaming two weeks of popular fury on a foreign conspiracy during his first comments since the protests began.

MADISON, WIS.

Gov. will heed judge ruling Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s top aide said Thursday the administration will abide by a judge’s order to stop preparation to implement a divisive collective bargaining law. Department of Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch said Thursday the Republican governor’s administration still believes the law took effect when a state office posted online last week. But he says Walker will abide by Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi’s ruling earlier Thursday that the law hadn’t taken effect. Sumi’s ruling came after Walker’s administration ignored a restraining order she issued earlier this week saying work on the law should stop while she considers a lawsuit challenging the statute’s legitimacy.

JEFFERSON CITY, MO.

Extra jobless aid dropped Thousands of people in Missouri who have been unemployed for more than a year soon will lose their jobless benefits, marking a significant victory for Republican fiscal hawks who are crusading against government spending. When eligibility ends Saturday, Missouri will become the only state to voluntarily quit a federal stimulus program that offers extended benefits. Michigan, Arkansas and Florida also recently took steps to cut back on money going to the unemployed, although they targeted state benefits instead. As a result, more than 34,000 unemployed residents in Missouri could miss out on $105 million in benefits over the next nine months. Unlike some other stimulus programs, Missouri’s unclaimed money would not be redistributed by the federal government to other states. It simply would remain unspent. NEW YORK

Oil highest since 2008 The price of oil rose to a 30-month high on Thursday as fighters loyal to Moammar Gadhafi pushed back rebels from key areas in eastern Libya. Benchmark West Texas Intermediate crude rose $2.45, more than 2 percent, to settle at $106.72 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. At one point it hit $106.83, the highest it’s been since September, 2008. In London, Brent crude rose $2.25 to settle at $117.20 per barrel. Energy traders worry that unrest will spread across the region to disrupt shipments from OPEC countries like Saudi Arabia and Iran. Gasoline prices continue to rise along with the price of oil. The national average on Thursday hit $3.606 for a gallon of regular, according to AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service.

Ferraro made history as the first woman to serve on a major party ticket when Democrat Walter Mondale chose her as his running mate in 1984. She died Saturday of multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer. She was 75.

Japan seeks outside nuke help

TOKYO, Japan — Japan is increasingly turning to other countries for help as it struggles to stabilize its tsunami-stricken nuclear plant and stop radiation leaks that are complicating efforts to recover the bodies of some of the thousands swept away by the towering wave. French, American and international

experts — even a robot — are either in Japan or on their way, and French President Nicholas Sarkozy visited Tokyo on Thursday to meet with the prime minister and show solidarity. Workers are racing to find the source of contaminated water that has been pooling in the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. “The amount of water is enormous, and we need any wisdom available,” said nuclear safety agency spokesman Hidehiko Nishiyama. A spokesman for plant operator Tokyo

Electric Power Co. said Thursday that radioactive contamination in groundwater 15 yards under one of six reactors there had been measured at 10,000 times the government standard. It was the first time the utility has released statistics for groundwater near the plant. Traces of radioactive Iodine-131 were found in milk in California and Washington, according to federal and state authorities who are monitoring for contamination. But the officials say the levels are still 5,000 times below levels of concern and do not represent a public health threat.

BUDGET SHOWDOWN

Tea party protests deal on spending

A tentative deal would result in cuts of about $33 billion, half of what House wants. By LISA MASCARO and KATHLEEN HENNESSEY Tribune Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON — Budget talks continued Thursday on a compromise that would avoid a federal government shutdown, even as "tea party" protesters gathered outside the Capitol to urge Republicans not to stray from the $61 billion in cuts already approved by the House. A tentative deal would result in cuts of about half that — $33 billion in cutbacks in one of the largest one-time reductions in domestic government programs. But House Speaker John Boehner insisted Thursday that Republicans had not agreed to that level of reductions. He said the GOP was holding out for the House-passed bill that included dozens of such politically divisive policy priorities as defunding The Tea Party Planned Parent- Patriots conhood and gut- verged on ting the Environmental Pro- Capitol Hill, tection Agency. telling memThat bill died in bers of Cona Senate vote. gress that it "We’re going to continue to would be fight for every- worth a shutthing that’s in down to it," Boehner, ROhio, said achieve the promised level Thursday. Pressure on of cuts. Republicans remains intense as conservatives view a compromise as a violation of the GOP’s fall campaign promise to cut spending by $100 billion. Republican leaders have argued that that has been fulfilled with the proposed $61 billion in cuts this year. Under gray skies, the influential conservative group Tea Party Patriots converged on Capitol Hill, telling members of Congress that it would be worth a shutdown to achieve the promised level of cuts. "Cut it or shut it," they cheered. Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., a conservative favorite of the smallgovernment activists, announced from the stage: "It’s time to pick a fight." Jenny Beth Martin, a co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, the group that organized the rally, said the House GOP must stand firm. "They can’t go lower than $61 billion," she said. "They’ve already compromised." White House spokesman Jay Carney on Thursday called the House measure "not viable," because it failed to clear the Senate. Carney suggested that Boehner and other Republican leaders wanted to avoid a shutdown and that the administration was optimistic about reaching an accord. "We do not have a deal," he cautioned. "But there is a target number from which the details can be worked out."

Marino remarks stir heat, but he sees no problem The local congressman had expressed concern over possible U.S. escalation. By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

U.S. Rep. Tom Marino has come under fire for comments he made earlier this week regarding the U.S. launching missiles into Libya. A story on Thursday’s online edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer labeled Marino a “geography dunce” for comments he made to another newspaper earlier in the week, alleging Marino did not realize Libya is an African nation. Marino spoke about President Obama’s policy in Libya and said Congress was not consulted before air cover and missile strikes were launched. Marino reportedly stated that “the bottom line is I wish the president would have told us, talked to Congress about what is the plan. Is there a plan? Is the mission to take Gadhafi out?” “Where does it stop?” he continued. “Do we go into Africa next? I don’t want to sound callous or cold, but this could go on indefinitely around the world.” Inquirer writer Thomas Fitzgerald quipped Thursday that “Libya, of course, is in Africa.

D’Oh!” Marino’s spokeswoman Renita Fennick said Thursday the congressman was quoted correctly, but readMarino ers, including those at the Inquirer, apparently misunderstood his comment. There are no U.S. soldiers on the ground fighting in Africa, Fennick said, and Marino wants to keep it that way. “We are not in Africa. There were missile strikes, but many of those missiles were launched from Missouri,” Fennick said. “The congressman’s position is that we don’t want to go into Africa, (but) a few days of missile strikes does not put us on a continent.” Fennick said Marino’s office was “baffled” about how the quote could have been misunderstood.

At a preliminary hearing on March 16, Hartnett pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced to six months probation. “It is one crime we found that we can charge people with,” Kingston police Chief James Keiper said. “We’ve had multiple incidents involving bath salts this year. Until the legislature makes bath salts illegal, we’ll continue to encounter this problem.” In the absence of a state law, police agencies are dealing with crimes associated with bath salts. Wilkes-Barre police said they arrested Kenneth Albelli, 37, of Dillon Street, late Wednesday afternoon when he was chasing after and yelling at passing cars on East Main Street.

Decision paves way for Hazleton-area charter school The proposed Valley Academy had been rejected by Hazleton Area School District. By STEVE MOCARSKY smocarsky@timesleader.com

It appears that a charter school will open in the Hazleton Area School District. The Pennsylvania State Charter School Appeals Board on Wednesday voted unanimously (6-0) to grant the appeal of the Valley Academy Charter School. The vote reverses a decision of the Hazleton Area School Board and will result in the grant of a charter for Valley Academy, Stephen Seach, an attorney

for the school, said in a statement. Although the appeals board has not yet issued a written opinion, it stated in a public meeting that Valley Academy’s plan substantively meets the requirements for a charter school. The appeals board commended the work of five Wilkes University professors who helped establish the curriculum, Seach said. Valley Academy Charter School founders Aprilaurie Whitley and Stanley Warner are pleased with the decision. School organizers successfully fought two legal battles thus far. In the latest round, attorney Michael Senape presented oral argument to the appeals board, and the legal briefs were a collaborative effort of attorneys Senape, Seach, Catherine McGovern and

Cordaro and Munchak lodge not-guilty pleas

James Senape. In an earlier challenge by the school district, Valley Academy witnesses testified before Luzerne County Judge Tina Polachek Gartley in support of the 1,190 signatures they had obtained. Seach presented the testimony of supporters and legal arguments, and Gartley found that there was sufficient community support for the appeal to proceed. A charter school is a type of public school free of some state restrictions. The school must be approved, or chartered, by the public school district in which it will be located. Valley Academy would serve students in ninth through 12th grades, focusing on environmental science and math. Organizers submitted an application

in 2007 to be chartered by Hazleton Area School District, and a state-mandated public hearing was held that December. District officials recommended rejecting the application at the time, though the School Board never voted on it. That’s because the academy organizers withdrew the application. They later re-entered the application , but it was denied in the spring of 2009. The Valley Academy School Board will meet to discuss further procedures. Hazleton Area School Board Vice President Tony Bonomo said there were no plans to appeal the decision of the state appeals board. He also said the charter school might even help the district’s financial situation. “It is time … to work together,” Bonomo said.

SCRANTON – Lackawanna County Commissioner A.J. Munchak and former Commissioner Robert Cordaro pleaded not guilty Thursday to a superseding indictment filed against them this week. They were arraigned before U.S. District Magistrate Judge Thomas Blewitt in the federal courthouse in Scranton at 11 a.m. Cordaro entered a “not guilty” plea, while Munchak declared himself “absolutely not guilty.” “I wish the trial was tomorrow. I’m innocent, and I’m confident that my name will be cleared,” Munchak said while leaving the courthouse. He declined further comment. “We’re very comfortable with the truth of this case. We’re very comfortable with the facts of this case. (My attorney) Bill (Costopoulos) said it when we started this process – we are also very comfortable despite the trend around here that we’re going to get a fair jury. If we get a fair jury, we’ll be fine,” Cordaro added. They face a 41-count indictment charging them with racketeering, money laundering, honest services fraud, bribery, extortion, and other offenses. The latest indictment filed on Tuesday made 15 technical changes to the second indictment, including the addition of two money laundering charges against Cordaro. While they had previously pleaded not guilty, these changes required another arraignment. Federal prosecutors allege Cordaro and Munchak used their positions as county commissioners to extort money from companies that did business with the county in what some have called a “pay to play” scheme. The latest superseding indictment made mostly technical changes to this indictment, primarily grammatical and legal clarifications, although two money laundering charges were also added against Cordaro. The trial is scheduled to begin June 6 in the Max Rosenn Federal Courthouse in Wilkes-Barre.

OTHER OPINION: IMPROVED ACCESS

Disabled deserve recreation, too

M

ORE THAN 2 million Pennsylvanians cope with some type of disability – hearing, vision, mobility, cognition. That shouldn’t keep them from enjoying the same entertainment and amenities that able-bodied citizens often take for granted. New federal regulations will improve access to many venues, in Pennsylvania and across the country, that until now had been off-limits for some disabled Americans. The set of rules, an extension of the 20year-old Americans with Disabilities Act, will cover more than 7 million places of public accommodation. They include recreational facilities such as amusement parks, movie theaters, swim-

ming pools, parks and golf courses. Disability rights advocates welcome the changes on behalf of people who use wheelchairs or otherwise are denied access to leisure activities. Places that are subject to the revised standards have until March 2012 to comply. The building industry has known for years that the changes were coming. Analysts say they provide architects with uniform standards. Accessible seating at a concert or ballgame should not be considered an unaffordable luxury. Neither, surely, should an accessible hotel room or bathroom. The 50 million Americans with disabilities deserve no less. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

LETTERS FROM READERS

Resident finds no rest from noise at airport

I

am writing in response to a previously published letter to the editor. I have been living in Wyoming for an extended time and I, too, am frustrated with the annoyance of the Wyoming airport. We all work different, hectic schedules and look forward to our time off and perhaps catching up on well-deserved rest. It is just not right for these planes to dictate our lives in such a profound manner. If there are others who agree, you really should contact your local authorities. This is an issue that needs to be addressed. A. Cooper Wyoming

If saved, Sterling could still be a jewel of city

I

am very upset to hear that the Hotel Sterling might face demolition. This was the heart and center of Wilkes-Barre from the time its doors opened to its closing. This hotel was not just another inn, but a valuable piece of history. For this building to make it through the Great Depression is fascinating. The hotel brought great joy to WilkesBarre. I remember some of the famous people to walk through its doors. I remember when President John F. Kennedy and members of Congress came to town, as well as boxer Muhammad Ali. They could have stayed anywhere, but they chose the Sterling. I worked there at one time. Each time I walked through those doors, it took my breath away. I felt like I was surrounded by art – the staircase, the woodwork, the marble, the beautiful carvings above the stairs and the chandeliers that were carefully cleaned. This building is a great part of WilkesBarre’s history. If torn down, it will be like watching a loved one die. CityVest should pay back all of the money it took from taxpayers, so that the Sterling could have a chance to come alive again. CityVest should have listened to architect Carl Handman, and fixed the roof and windows his way. With only that done, there still would have been plenty of money to work with for the interior. Why pay a construction crew from Chicago to demolish the Sterling? I don’t think they care about the building. Why pay for those workers’ meals and lodging? What a waste of money. The $6 million should have been given to the historical society; at least its heart would have saved the Sterling. It could bring back many businesses to Wilkes-Barre. Tourists would want to visit one of the oldest hotels around, and it

could be the site of art exhibits, fashion shows and weddings. The Sterling could still be the heart and jewel of this city.

Church has long backed workers’ union rights

T

o hear some people tell it, supporting unions is up there with the seven deadly sins. However, based on its history and principles, the Catholic Church favors workers’ rights to unionize and to strike. In 1887, Baltimore’s Cardinal Gibbons supported the Knights of Labor. Catholic John Mitchell organized the United Mine Workers with the help of Father John Curran. In 1891, Pope Leo XIII argued that workers had a right to a sufficient wage, reasonable hours, rest periods, health safeguards and a decent work environment. Later, Pope John Paul II supported Solidarity in Poland and its leader, Lech Walesa, asserting the fundamental principle of “the priority of labor over capital,” saying, “There is a need for ever new movements of solidarity of the workers and with the workers” and that “the church is firmly committed to this cause.” More recently, Pope Benedict XVI wrote that the promotion of unions that can defend workers’ rights must “be honored today even more than in the past.” Indeed, Section 68 of the “Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern

World” states that among the basic human rights is the right to found unions without risk of reprisal and that strikes “may be necessary.” Referring to the troubles in Wisconsin, the chairperson of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development said, “These are not just political conflicts or economic choices; they are moral choices with enormous human dimensions.” Joseph Rogan President, Pax Christi of Northeastern Pennsylvania Eynon

Getting rid of unions makes good fiscal sense

I

t’s about time the states are correcting a problem that has been around for many years: unions. In their heyday, they were well managed and protected the workers within reasonable limits. Today, unions have become Frankenstein-like monsters. They have become so powerful that trying to deal with them was, and is, useless. States such as Wisconsin, New Jersey and others are attempting to cut these unions down to size, as they have become a cancer in our daily lives. These unions are sucking us dry of every cent we have with their pensions, health care and miscellaneous other perks that are paid for by the common taxpayer. It isn’t only happening in Wisconsin; it is happening in your backyard in Pennsylvania. Do you know how much teachers get paid? Do you know how much they pay into their health care and pensions? Who is making up the difference? You and I are with our taxes. This has got to stop. Yes, education is important. But does financing education with more of our tax dollars improve anything? I think not. A dedicated teacher with the right attitude will educate those kids willing to learn. Giving more money to the schools doesn’t guarantee a student’s willingness to learn. Giving more money to the unions doesn’t guarantee teachers will be qualified to educate our children. It starts at home. You can say the Republicans are on a witch hunt to hurt us all, but that isn’t true. They are trying to save their individual states, and us, from going bankrupt. Unions are a major part of the problem. Why don’t you see the Democrats do this? It is because the unions contribute to their campaigns, and they don’t want to see a major percentage of their support disappear. So let’s support our legislators elected to get us out of the mess. If we continue to go along this same path of spending more than we have, soon there won’t be anything there for us to spend. Charles Davis Wright Township

Legislation aims to address distracted driving By BILL O’BOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

WILKES-BARRE – An amendment to state House Bill 896 calls for additional penalties for distracted drivers. The bill was referred to the House Committee on Transportation on March 2. It originally addressed careless driving and attached penalties for persons found guilty of causing injury or death of others at $250 to $500. The amendment defines distracted driver as “having a person’s attention diverted from operating a vehicle by a radio, recording/playback device, telephone device, citizens band radio, television, computer and

as how many fines have been issued, Drew McLaughlin, assistant to Mayor Tom Leighton, said the city police department does not categorize traffic violations per specific offense. “A citation for talking on the cell phone, illegally turning on a red light, or rolling through a stop sign would all be categorized the same,” McLaughlin said. Kane said that to her knowledge there have not been any reports of people getting seriously hurt in the city in cell phonerelated accidents. “But I have seen the national statistics that show people are getting hurt and killed because of distracted drivers on cell phones,” she said. Kane said council will continue to apply pressure to state legislators to pass a statewide law. She said there are “many divided opinions” on how the law should read, but she remains hopeful an agreement will come soon. Rick Remington, spokesman for AAA Mid-Atlantic, said Ted Leonard, executive director of the Pennsylvania AAA Federation in Harrisburg, told him AAA supports House Bill 896, sponsored by Rep Chris Ross, RChester, in the current session. Remington said Leonard is

It’s also Northeastern Pennsylvania’s largest employer, with total employment at about 5,800, including tenant activities and contractors. But about seven years ago, the wage system was changed in a way that split how workers are paid at the depot. Employees known as “general schedule” workers – “white collar” employees – were included in the more generous New York labor market scale, which provided higher pay

other device.” The penalty for violation is a $50 fine. Local state legislators said they support enacting a state law and said there are several under review in Harrisburg. State Rep. Mike Carroll, DAvoca, said he is a co-sponsor of bills to prohibit both texting while driving and handheld cell phone use while driving. “As a member of the Transportation Committee, I expect legislation to advance that deals with these driving distractions, especially as they relate to younger drivers,” he said. State Rep. Tarah Toohil, R-Butler Township, said legislation is needed to be “back on the table” with regard to texting/using

electronic devices while driving. “I believe it is a very dangerous activity, which negatively impacts and can endanger the wellbeing of many people,” Toohil said. “Distracted driving legislation (i.e. HB 896) can be much more far reaching and includes the carelessness and disregard that a driver may have for others.” State Rep. Gerald Mullery, DNewport Township, said his colleague Rep. Joseph F. Markosek, D-Allegheny/Westmoreland, has introduced legislation aimed at reducing accidents caused by distracted and inexperienced drivers. Mullery said that under House Bill 580, adult drivers would be

required to use hands-free cell phones while driving. Teen drivers would be banned from using any interactive wireless communication device, such as a cell phone, personal digital assistant or laptop computer while driving. Exceptions would be made for people reporting an emergency, on-duty emergency vehicle operators and volunteer emergency responders. “I don’t believe anyone can effectively argue that an activity that draws a driver’s attention away from the road substantially increases the driver’s odds of being involved in a motor vehicle accident,” Mullery said. “I don’t need to review studies from Virginia Tech or Quinnipiac Univer-

sity to convince me of this fact. That being said, the aforementioned studies confirm that the risk of crash or near-crash dramatically increases if the driver is distracted while utilizing a cell phone.” Mullery said he supports banning texting in moving vehicles for drivers of all ages and cell phone usage should be banned for newly licensed teen drivers. A strong supporter of the effort to ban the use of handheld cell phones, and particularly texting, while driving, Rep. Karen Boback, R-Harveys Lake, said people sharing public roadways with other drivers should have their full attention on the road.

“This session, we have not considered any legislation on the floor that would accomplish such a ban, but there may be proposals before the House Transportation Committee,” Boback said. “I would certainly be willing to consider any measure that would increase the safety of our roads and highways.” State Sen. John Yudichak, DPlymouth Township, is a cosponsor of two bills in the Senate concerning the use of cell phones while driving. “I will continue to support bills that advance a common sense approach for increased traffic safety and the use of cell phones,” Yudichak said.

What do you think about WilkesBarre’s ban of the use of cell phones while driving? Go to timesleader.com to comment on the story or take an online poll.

Featured in the September 2010 issue of Seventeen magazine, the results are based on a survey conducted of nearly 2,000 male and female teen drivers ages 16-19. Seventeen magazine and AAA set out to discover what risky behaviors teen drivers were engaging in while behind the wheel – and how they justify this dangerous behavior. Of the teen drivers surveyed: • 73 percent have adjusted their radio/CD/MP3 player. • 61 percent have eaten food. • 60 percent have talked on a cell phone while driving. The reasons teen drivers think it’s fine to engage in these distractions are varied.

scheduled to testify in support of it at a House hearing in late April. Remington said cell phone use/texting comes under the umbrella of distracted driving. He said AAA supports tougher penalties for drivers who cause crashes or traffic violations as a result of distracted behavior while driving. “We support a comprehensive approach based on sound research and which includes a significant education component,” Remington said. “According to the Governors’ Highway Safety Association, 30 states (including 11 in 2010) enacted such bans. New York, New Jersey and Delaware have all banned texting; Pennsylvania has yet to act. We will continue to push for an outright ban during the current session.” AAA and Seventeen magazine conducted a national study last year regarding distracted driving among teens, including texting and cell phone use. Other distracting activities besides using a cell phone include eating and drinking, talking to passengers, grooming, reading (including maps), using a PDA or navi-

gation system, watching a video, and changing the radio station, CD, or MP3 player. Remington said AAA nationally has urged all states to ban text messaging outright. “We have worked with state legislatures, including the Pennsylvania General Assembly, to enact the necessary statutes,” Remington said. “Research has shown that the combination of visual, cognitive and physical distractions while text messaging behind the wheel makes it an inherently dangerous activity.”

than previously. But federal wage system workers at Tobyhanna – “blue collar” employees – were not paid under the New York scale. That result was a proportionately lower wage scale for the about 3,000 federal wage schedule workers at Tobyhanna. Being paid under the higher wage scale would mean raises of anywhere from about $4,000 to more than $8,000. Average salary for depot general schedule workers, including professional personnel such as engineers, accountants and supervisory personnel, is $63,672, according to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. The average salary for depot federal wage system workers, including industrial-skilled trades and supervisory personnel, is $50,112, OPM said.

Done deal or just a plan That change – and the accompanying raises – was supposed to have been approved last fall. During the final days of his losing campaign, former Rep. Paul Kanjorski, D-Nanticoke, announced that federal officials had agreed to fix the pay disparity. That’s true, Casey said in a release this week. An entity called the Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee recommended changing the system to correct the disparity, a change that also would help some 15,000 other federal employees facing similar situations in 18 other states. But the White House’s Office of Personnel Management hasn’t yet put the fairer scale into effect, Casey said. “Simply stated, OPM should move forward without delay,” Casey said in a letter sent Tues-

ty into a government that will make citizens accountable. “That’s what distinguishes me,” Haggerty said. If elected, he said, he would work hard as a judge to solve cases before they went to trial to save taxpayers money. Haggerty also supports judges

Remington said eight states ban all handheld cell phone use by drivers, and 28 have enacted such bans for novice drivers. “Again, New York, New Jersey and Delaware have each taken this step; Pennsylvania has not,” he said. The AAA/Seventeen study revealed that nearly nine in 10 teenage drivers (86 percent) have driven while distracted, even though 84 percent of teen drivers know it’s dangerous. “It’s proof that teen drivers know it is risky business to text

while driving, but they still do it,” the report stated. “However, the overwhelming majority of teen drivers engage in distracted driving behaviors anyway.” AAA President and CEO Robert L. Darbelnet said in the report that traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for teen drivers. “Because of their lack of driving experience and penchant to take risks, it’s imperative that teen drivers – like all drivers – remain focused behind the wheel at all times,” he said.

What Is distracted driving? According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are three main types of distraction: • Visual — taking your eyes off the road • Manual — taking your hands off the wheel • Cognitive — taking your mind off what you’re doing The NHTSA defines distracted driving as any activity a person engages in that has the potential to distract him or her from the primary task of driving and increase the risk of crashing. While all distractions can endanger drivers’ safety, the NHTSA says texting is the most alarming because it involves all three types of distraction.

Tensions among Depot staff The issue is one that creates tensions among the ranks of Tobyhanna workers, said Kathy Powell, first vice president of the American Federation of Government Employees, Local 1647, which represents the general schedule and federal wage scale employees.

are “wondering, why the delay?” In addition to the letter, Casey spoke to Berry this week about the Tobyhanna pay issue. The conversation was a “productive” one, according to a Casey spokesman, who declined to provide details but said that Casey will be following up in an attempt to resolve the situation once and for all. Meanwhile, Rep. Lou Barletta, D-Hazleton, who defeated Kanjorski last fall, is looking into the issue, as well, said Shawn Kelly, Barletta’s spokesman. “Lou understands there is an imbalance that affects some of the workers at the Tobyhanna Army Depot,” Kelly said. “Lou knows the vital role the employees play in keeping our military safe on the battlefield and around the world, and he knows the vital role Tobyhanna Army Depot plays in the regional economy.”

Haggerty has served in the Pennsylvania Army National Guard and U.S. Army Reserve. From 1986-88 he was stationed at both Fort Bragg, N.C., and Fort Knox, Ky., and he was a second lieutenant and tank platoon leader, 1st Battalion, 103rd Armor Regiment, from 1987-90.

The mayor said he is a man who “does a job that’s assigned to him” and feels he has stood up for the citizens of Kingston and Luzerne County. “I urge anyone to find someone who thinks they were treated unfairly in Kingston,” Haggerty said.

Report: Boy accuses ex-coach

Newspaper says Jerry Sandusky is being investigated on allegations he indecently assaulted a teenage boy. By GENARO C. ARMAS Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE — Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State defensive coordinator known for his charitable work helping at-risk children, is being investigated by a state grand jury on allegations he indecently assaulted a teenage boy, a newspaper reported. Sandusky has not been charged. A grand jury examines accusations to de-

termine if evidence warrants filing charges. A message left by The Associated Press at a number listed for Sandusky in State College was not immediSandusky ately returned. His lawyer, Joseph Amendola, said in a statement that Sandusky maintained his innocence and was disappointed the newspaper published a story “prior to any determination by the Attorney General’s Office that he did anything inappropriate at all.” “While Jerry has been aware of an on-

going investigation by the Attorney General’s Office for many months dating back to 2009, he has steadfastly maintained his innocence throughout this ordeal,” Amendola said. The Patriot-News in Harrisburg reported Thursday that it spoke to five anonymous sources with knowledge of the case who say a grand jury has been meeting in Harrisburg for 18 months to hear allegations made by a 15-year-old boy in 2009. The paper reported the teen told authorities that there was inappropriate contact over a four-year period. Amendola said that should “the allegations as set forth in today’s newspaper

article eventually lead to the institution of criminal charges against Jerry, Jerry fully intends to establish his innocence and put these false allegations to rest forever.” Sandusky retired after the 1999 season after 32 years as an assistant to Penn State football coach Joe Paterno. Once considered a potential successor to Paterno, Sandusky helped establish Penn State’s “Linebacker U” reputation and drew up the defenses for the Nittany Lions’ national-title teams in 1982 and 1986. Sandusky, 67, also has been lauded See SANDUSKY, Page 2B

VCU coach Shaka Smart answers a question before practice Friday in Houston.

Madness rules in Houston By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer

HOUSTON — VCU arrived at the Final Four with its team, its bandwagon and its T-shirt. “There goes my bracket,” it says — an oh-so-fitting statement printed in gold letters and sandwiched between the school logo and the picture of a crumpled-up piece of paper. Indeed, almost anyone who wins an office pool this year will limp home to their victory. Hardly anyone saw this THE coming. FINAL But for VCU, ButFOUR ler, Connecticut and Kentucky, all of Saturday whom got their first VCU vs. Butler 6:09 p.m. look at the court UConn tucked inside of Revs. Kentucky liant Stadium on 8:49 p.m. Thursday, this is a TV Coverage: time to act like they CBS expected it all along, to focus on winning a national championship that hardly seemed likely when the first ball was tipped back in October. Back then, VCU was listed as a 5,000-1 longshot in Vegas. Butler was figuring out how to replace NBA-bound forward Gordon Hayward and dream up a second act after almost winning it all last year, only six miles from its tiny campus in Indianapolis. Connecticut was picked 10th in the Big East. Kentucky was gearing up for a transition year after losing five key players to the NBA and freshman Enes Kanter to eligibility issues while awaiting a killer recruiting class for 2011-12. “I never thought we’d be sitting here,” Butler coach Brad Stevens said when asked what he thought of his team’s prospects in February, when the Bulldogs were 14-9 with a three-game losing streak. “But the season starts in October and it goes until at least March 1. You’re supposed to get better. It’s hard. But if you have guys willing to work through it, it can happen.” In the first semifinal Saturday, eighthseeded Butler (27-9) will play 11th-seeded VCU (23-11), in a matchup of underdog mid-majors that some might considSee NCAA, Page 3B

The New York Yankees’ Curtis Granderson runs the bases after hitting a home run during the seventh inning of Thursday’s 6-3 victory over Detroit at Yankee Stadium.

Granderson slams go-ahead homer

By HOWIE RUMBERG AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK — A healthy Curtis Granderson helped give the storied New York Yankees their earliest home win ever. Granderson hit a go-ahead homer leading off the seventh inning and Mark Teixeira had a three-run shot off Justin Verlander, lifting New York over the Detroit Tigers 6-3 Thursday in the first March opener in the Bronx. “It was great — except for the weather,” said Granderson, who arrived in New York around 11 p.m.

Wednesday after playing in a rehabilitation game with minor leaguers in Tampa, Fla., earlier in the day. CC Sabathia pitched six workmanlike innings, Derek Jeter added a sacrifice fly in the seventh using his new stride-less swing and Mariano Rivera, wearing his socks high for perhaps the first time, earned his first save and 560th of his career. Newcomers Russell Martin and Rafael Soriano did their part as the Yankees got off to a quick start on a gray, blustery, 42-degree day. “Their bullpen and the long ball is what did us in today,” Detroit manag-

er Jim Leyland said. “I thought it was actually a decent game for the conditions. It was pretty rough.” Sidelined with a strained side since March 22, Granderson made two spectacular catches against his former team and homered for the third straight opener — off a lefty, no less. He connected against former Yankee Phil Coke (0-1) as New York embarked on its first full season without George Steinbrenner as owner since 1973. “He played a good game for being See YANKEES, Page 3B

PAUL SOKOLOSKI OPINION

Japan could be the road back for Sanchez

H

e stood up from his seat and started to stretch, the breakfast room of a Tampa hotel serving as his bullpen. This is where Romulo Sanchez did his most important work of this upcoming baseball season. Because by the time he was done early Thursday afternoon, when those “bullpen” doors opened, Sanchez wasn’t just heading into a game this time. He was entering a whole new world. It is one where a country is recovering from calamity, where the native language is much different from his, where Sanchez will pitch at the end of games, not the beginning. But Sanchez believes he will get a jumpstart, if not a new start, by playing in Japan. “Right now, at this point, it’s a great opportunity,” his agent Jhosep Rojas said. The chance for Sanchez to chase more money and a relief role in Japan became reality Thursday when longtime Japanese baseball scout Richard Seko signed him to a one-year contract with an option for a second season to play for the Rakuten Golden Eagles. That transaction came just down the street from Steinbrenner Field, where Sanchez spent the whole spring training with the New York Yankees fighting to be part of their season opener Thursday. But the Yankees designated Sanchez for assignment Wednesday, right after he compiled a 3.86 ERA over seven innings and picked up a save pitching in games this spring. And a season after he went 10-8 with nearly a strikeout an inning for the Scranton/WilkesBarre Yankees, between making a couple of relief appearances for parent New York. “I loved the (Scranton/Wilkes-Barre) area,” Sanchez, a Venezuela native and resident who speaks little English, said through Rojas. “I loved the opportunity the Yankees provided to me. I’m just very proud the Yankees gave me a chance to pitch.” He will pitch for Rakuten in a closer’s role, where the 26-year-old Sanchez began his professional career before the Pirates and Yankees began turning him into a starter. To get him started, Seko pulling out a tape right at the hotel and measuring the 6-foot-5, 270-pound Sanchez for uniform size. The right-hander seemed amused, but knows this is a big task he’s undertaking. “(It’s) only for one year,” Sanchez insisted, explaining through his agent how pitching in Japan could help Sanchez grow into a major league-ready pitcher in a couple of years. He made that pitch to enter a new culture while sitting right next to a large sliding window, where everything seemed ready to slide away outside. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s scheduled workouts and game at the Yankees minor league complex were washed away by driving rains before they could be blown away by a day-long series of strong storms parading in off Florida’s Gulf Coast. Up on the hotel televisions, weather forecasters were counting the number of tornadoes touching down through Tampa’s surrounding areas – two, three, then maybe a fourth – while showing the frightening strength of a system that mangled power lines, peeled rooftops and toppled tractor trailers while leaving roadways resembling canals. The connection wasn’t lost on Sanchez, who was leaving those ominous skies in Florida for a nation struggling to recover from being battered by a tsunami last month. “Romulo is going in there with the thought it’ll inspire support for the Japanese people,” Rojas said. “He released a statement saying it will not be long until we see them rise again. They are a great nation.” Japan has become a nation of hope while trying to overcome difficult struggles. For Sanchez, it is the place to be to do some rebuilding.

SANDUSKY Continued from Page 1B

for his work with The Second Mile, a charitable organization he founded in 1977 to help at-risk children. He retired from the board of the charity in September, and executive vice president Katherine Genovese said then that he had been dialing back duties in recent years and was looking to spend more time with family and deal with his personal life. Paterno and Penn State athletic director Tim Curley were among those who appeared before the grand jury in January, the Patriot-News reported. A spokesman for the athletic department declined to comment Thursday on behalf of athletics and Paterno. Lisa Powers, a spokeswoman for the university, also declined to comment. The allegations surfaced in 2009 while Sandusky was a volunteer assistant high school football coach at Central Mountain High School in Clinton County, the Patriot-News reported. John DiNunzio, interim superintendent of the Keystone Central School District at the time, said the boy’s mother reported an incident to the principal and head football coach. According to the newspaper, DiNunzio, now interim superintendent at the Bellefonte school district, was told by the coach and principal that the boy alleged contact occurred while he and Sandusky were alone in the room on wrestling mats. The report was passed on to Clinton County Children and Youth Services. The newspaper, citing anonymous sources, reported the boy told that department that there had been indecent contact several times over four years. The case was forwarded to the Clinton County district attorney, who then forwarded it to his thencounterpart in Centre County, Michael Madeira, because the incidents where alleged to have taken place in Centre County. Madeira then referred the case to then-Attorney General Tom Corbett’s office in March 2009. DiNunzio told the PatriotNews he never heard from police “once it left his desk.” Kelly Hastings, current superintendent of Keystone Central School District, told the newspaper said she has direct knowledge of the report and that documents from the school have not been subpoenaed. The newspaper also reported that state police in Centre County two months ago began calling witnesses to a May1998 report by Penn State police detailing an earlier allegation of inappropriate contact against Sandusky by another boy. No charges were ever filed against Sandusky. In a separate story Thursday, Patriot-News editor David Newhouse said the newspaper contacted the attorney general’s office with details of the story, to ask if the newspaper was wrong and to ask if their report would harm the investigation. Newhouse said the newspaper would not have reported the story if it were told “yes,” and that the attorney general’s office declined to speak with the paper. Newhouse wrote that, in response to a question from one of Sandusky’s friends, the paper would report with equal veracity if charges are never brought and the inquiry dismissed. “We would owe that to Coach Sandusky, Penn State, The Second Mile and all who have admired his life and work,” Newhouse wrote. Responding to the PatriotNews story, Second Mile president Jack Raykovitz said in a statement the organization was “shaken by the article.” “While The Second Mile is referenced in the Patriot News article, we have been advised that neither The Second Mile nor our programs are the subject of any investigation,” Raykovitz said. “Out of respect for all parties, we cannot discuss, speculate, or comment further.” Raykovitz said the organization was committed “first and foremost to the safety and wellbeing of the children we serve. We have zero tolerance for abuse. ... Throughout our history, there have never been allegations made with regard to misconduct occurring during any Second Mile program.”

Halladay, Phillies think big

Continued from Page 1B

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — For Roy Halladay, opening day means it’s just one day closer to the postseason. Halladay and the rest of the Philadelphia Phillies are ready to get the most anticipated season in franchise history started. Expectations are high this year. So high, in fact, that anything less than a World Series title won’t be considered a success. But the Phillies have to play 162 games first, starting with today’s opener against the Houston Astros. “I think we’re all anxious, more so to get back to the postseason,” Halladay said. “That being the goal and having another quality team to put on the field, I think we’re all anxious. Opening day is just the start of it.” The four-time NL East champions became instant favorites to win their second World Series in four years after signing Cliff Lee to a $120 million, fiveyear deal. The addition of Lee to go along with Halladay, Roy Oswalt and Cole Hamels gives the Phillies a starting rotation that’s the envy of baseball. Injuries to five-time All-Star Chase Utley and closer Brad Lidge have brought Philadelphia back closer to the pack. Still, the Phillies won’t be satisfied unless they are riding down Broad Street for a championship parade in October. “Crazy things happen in baseball. It obviously takes a lot, and just because you have certain names on paper doesn’t guarantee anything,” Halladay said. “We’re very well aware of that. If we all go out and do our jobs the way we’re supposed to and we’re able to stay healthy, then we like our chances. But we all know what we’re up against. I don’t think teams are going to go running from us just because of the guys that we have on our roster.”

Bonds aide says trainer injected star The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Barry Bonds’ former personal shopper has testified that she saw the slugger’s private trainer inject Bonds in the navel before a road trip during the 2002 season. Kathy Hoskins said Thursday she was in Bonds’ bedroom packing his clothes for the trip when the seven-time NL MVP and trainer Greg Anderson came into the room. Anderson expressed concerns about her presence but Bonds said not to worry about Hoskins because “she’s my girl.” Hoskins testified that she then watched Anderson inject Bonds. She said didn’t ask about the injection, but Bonds volunteered that it was “a little something, something for when I go on the road. You can’t detect it.” Bonds is charged with lying to a federal grand jury when he said no one other than his doctor ever injected him with anything. The owner of Major League Baseball’s records for home runs in a career and a season also is accused of lying when he said that he never knowingly used performanceenhancing drugs. Hoskins testified after prosecutors called Barry Bonds’ orthopedic surgeon to the witness stand — a move they may wind up regretting. Dr. Arthur Ting contradicted the testimony of a key prosecution witness, former Bonds business partner Steve Hoskins, who is the brother of Kathy Hoskins. Their dad played for the San Francisco 49ers and was a friend of Barry Bonds’ baseball star father, Bobby Bonds.

Braves usher in new era The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Welcome back, Chipper. Nice way to start, Fredi. Returning from major knee surgery, Chipper Jones doubled before scoring the 2011 season’s first run on a chilly, damp opening day, and Derek Lowe allowed three singles in 5 2-3 innings, helping the Braves beat the Washington Nationals 2-0 Thursday to make Fredi Gonzalez a winner in his debut as Atlanta’s manager. The Braves played their first regular-season game since Bobby Cox retired at the end of 2010 after two decades — and 15 playoff appearances — as their skipper. With his sinker in fine, darting form, Lowe (1-0) struck out six and walked two. Dodgers 2, Giants 1 LOS ANGELES — Clayton Kershaw struck out nine in seven dominant innings and Matt Kemp scored the go-ahead run on a throwing error by catcher Buster Posey in the sixth, sending the Los Angeles Dodgers to a victory over the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants in their season opener. Kershaw (1-0) allowed four hits and walked one in his first opening-day start. The 23-yearold left-hander struck out three of the four batters he faced in the first, giving him 500 strikeouts in his career. Reds 7, Brewers 6 CINCINNATI — Ramon Hernandez hit a two-out, three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning, rallying the Cincinnati Reds to a victory over the Milwaukee Brewers in an openingday flashback to their NL Central title season. The Brewers became the first team in 42 years to open the season with back-to-back homers when Rickie Weeks and Carlos Gomez connected off Edinson Volquez. Ryan Braun also had a solo shot, helping Milwaukee take a 6-3 lead to the ninth. Padres 5, Cardinals 3 ST. LOUIS — Cameron Maybin tied it with a two-out homer in the ninth inning and grounded a single that led to the goahead run in the 11th as the San Diego Padres opened with a win over the St. Louis Cardinals. Cardinals star Albert Pujols had an awful start to what could be his 11th and final season in St. Louis. He grounded into a career-worst double plays while going 0 for 5. The three-time NL MVP cut off contract negotiations at the start of spring training and could be a free agent this fall. AMERICAN LEAGUE Angels 4, Royals 2 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Torii Hunter and Jeff Mathis homered, helping Jered Weaver and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Kansas City Royals in a chilly season opener. Weaver allowed two harmless singles to Melky Cabrera over 6 1-3 innings, improving to 3-0 in his last four starts against Kansas City. The 2010 major league strikeout leader fanned six and walked two as the Angels won their opener for the seventh time in the last eight years.

in a situation not knowing he would be here today,” Jeter said. With the flags above the lights in right field whipping toward the foul pole, Teixeira connected off Verlander in the third inning. Normally a .235 hitter in the first month of the season, the first baseman didn’t get his first hit last season until his fifth game. “I’ve been petitioning the league to start in March for years. “Finally they let us start in March because everybody knows my Aprils,” Teixeira said. “It’s great to start this way. ... Last year was awful, it was embarrassing.” Slimmed down by 25 pounds and healthy after having surgery on his right knee this winter, Sabathia gave up six hits and three runs — two earned. Starting on opening day in each of his three seasons with New York, Sabathia struck out seven and walked two. Joba Chamberlain, Soriano, the AL saves leader for Tampa Bay last year, and Rivera pitched perfect innings and the Yankees retired the last 10 overall. Chamberlain (1-0) got the win. “That’s the way we drew it up,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said with a smile. Verlander was making his fourth straight opening day start, most for the Tigers since Jack Morris went 10 in a row. He was hoping to get off to a quick start to his season after going1-2 with a 5.29 ERA last year in April before finishing 18-9, and he altered his offseason workout to help accomplish that. “Obviously, coming out of the spring that I had, this is not the results that I wanted,” said Verlander, who had a 0.96 ERA this spring. Pitching in shirt sleeves, the right-hander reached 97 mph on the radar gun in the first, but walked Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez before striking out Robinson Cano with his 31st pitch of the inning. Verlander gave up just two

er more fitting for the Maui Invitational than a Final Four bracket. In the second game, it’s No. 3 Connecticut (30-9) vs. No. 4 Kentucky (29-8) in the rematch of a game that really was on the schedule in Maui. UConn won 84-67 back on Nov. 24. A trip to Houston wasn’t on anyone’s mind back then. “That game showed what we could be and certainly what John needed to fix,” UConn coach Jim Calhoun said of Kentucky’s John Calipari. “It turned out, I needed to fix some things, too, but it was later because the problems showed up in the Big East.” All these teams had problems during big portions of this season. All got better and started peaking around the beginning of March. That has culminated in probably the most inconceivable foursome in Final Four history — not a single No. 1 or 2 seed for the first time ever, and a group of teams chosen by a grand total of three people out of more than 8 million entrants in bracket contests run by ESPN and Yahoo. “At first, it was the selection and how we shouldn’t be in the tournament,” VCU point guard Joey Rodriguez said. “Then it became, we can’t do this in this game, we won’t be able to do that in that game. We keep proving people wrong, and now, we’re here.” Like so many players from schools in smaller conferences, the VCU group remembers watching last year’s Duke-Butler final, seeing the Bulldogs fall a bounce short of the championship and thinking, sure, that could be them. Sort of the same way people dream about winning the lottery. Led by 33-year-old coach Shaka Smart, the Rams went only 12-6 and finished fourth in the Colonial Athletic Association. They wound up as one of the last teams placed in the tournament bracket. They took immense flak from Jay Bilas, Dick Vitale

other hits, including Rodriguez’s one-out double in the sixth that hit the fence in rightcenter just above the 385-foot marker. He walked Cano, but struck out Nick Swisher and Jorge Posada with two deceptive changeups, one 85 mph, the other 86. Jhonny Peralta drove in his first run of the month. After going without an RBI in 66 spring at-bats, he hit a sacrifice fly to center in his first plate appearance to give Detroit the lead in the second inning. Miguel Cabrera lined a single to left and, in his first at-bat with Detroit, Victor Martinez hit a hot shot to shortstop that Jeter, making a half-dive to his left couldn’t corral, for a base hit. Sabathia walked the bases loaded before Peralta flied to Granderson. Detroit closed it to 3-2 on Brandon Inge’s two-out single in the fourth, and tied it on Cabrera’s sacrifice fly in the fifth with help from Cano’s error on Rhymes’ sacrifice attempt. Covering first, Cano closed his glove before Teixeira’s toss arrived and the ball fell to the field. Swisher had an RBI single in the eighth. Granderson right away tested the injured side, diving on the slick turf to make a catch on Will Rhymes’ sinking liner in the first. Granderson came up smiling and holding up his glove. He also made a running over-theshoulder catch in the ninth.

and a whole group in the bracketology set who called VCU undeserving when its name showed up and teams such as Colorado and Virginia Tech were left out. The Rams answered by winning five games on their road to the Final Four by an average of 12 points. Now, they’re celebrities, across the nation and around their own campus — located in Richmond, Va., with enrollment of 32,000, about the same size as George Mason, the Virginia school that also made the Final Four as an 11 seed back in 2006. “I went to the bookstore the day the Final Four T-shirts came out, and that was a mistake,” VCU guard Bradford Burgess said. “People were taking pictures, giving me hugs, signing autographs. It took me an hour and a half to get out.” On the blue blood side of the bracket, UConn will face Kentucky in a matchup of a No. 3 seed vs. a No. 4. Granted, these weren’t implausible picks by any means, though Kentucky fans had every reason to believe it would be another year. They lost five players to the NBA draft after last season, including the No. 1 pick, John Wall. Meanwhile, they’ve got a virtual roster of McDonald’s All-Americans signed and ready to show up in Lexington next fall. Calipari figured out his team and got it revved up at precisely the right time. Led by freshmen Brandon Knight (East region most outstanding player) and senior Josh Harrellson (14.8 points and 9 rebounds a game in the tournament), the Wildcats returned to the Final Four for the first time since they last won it all, in 1998. “This team went from me dragging them to them dragging me,” Calipari said. “They became empowered, and that’s when they became special. They know it now. They get it.” The Huskies are a young team led by junior Kemba Walker, a guard from the Bronx who has added a nice mid-range and 3point-shooting game to his repertoire and has averaged 26 points a game since UConn went on a remarkable postseason run.

NIT

Wichita St. tops ’Bama for crown The Associated Press

NEW YORK — The only shocker about the end to Wichita State’s season was the location. J.T. Durley and Graham Hatch scored 12 points each to lead a balanced offense, and the Shockers overwhelmed top-seeded Alabama 66-57 on Thursday night to win the NIT championship at Madison Square Garden. Hatch was 4 for 4 from beyond the arc, including back-to-back baskets in the closing minutes, as Wichita State (29-8) finished up a remarkable postseason run in style. After getting left out of the NCAA tournament — and after hardly any critics argued on their behalf — the Shockers left little doubt they should have been selected. They beat Nebraska by 27 points, won at Virginia Tech, beat College of Charleston, then set a school record for wins in a season with a 75-44 romp over Washington State in the semifinals. They added one more victory against the Crimson Tide. Tony Mitchell had 13 points and 12 rebounds to lead Alabama (25-12), which lost for the second time in two trips to the NIT title game. Leading scorer JaMychal Green struggled with foul trouble and finished with 12 points, and Trevor Releford and Charvez Davis had 10 each. Alabama briefly pulled ahead in the second half on a free throw by Chris Hines with 15:06 left, but Wichita State answered with eight straight points to regain control. The lead never fell below five the rest of the way.

PSU WB sweeps doubleheader

PSU Wilkes-Barre defeated PSU Hazleton twice on Thursday’s doubleheader thanks in large part to the play of Matt Kempenski. PSU W-B won the first game 1-0 after Kempenski pitched a complete game three hitter. Kempenski struck out seven batters in the outing while also scoring the only run of the game on a single by Kyle Jola. In the second game, a 6-5 win for PSU W-B, Kempenski brought home Rob Bisson on a single in the bottom of the eighth to give the lead.

Adamshick, Lavery join forces in girls game By VAN ROSE vrose@timesleader.com

For the last three days, Meyers girls basketball coach Chris Gray was witnessing a dream come true: Selena Adamshick and Maddie Lavery practiced together as teammates under Gray’s tutelage at the Meyers gym. “Selena wore a Meyers jersey that was inside out,” Gray said. “I couldn’t help but imagine how wonderful it would have been if they both really played for Meyers.” Of course, it was a brief experience. Lake-Lehman’s Adamshick and Meyers’ Lavery, two of the top front line players in the conference, will join forces as members of the East team for tonight’s Dr. George P. Moses Senior All-Star Classic at Holy Redeemer High School. Tipoff is 6:30 p.m.followed by the boys all-star game at 8 p.m. Proceeds benefit local charities.

Walker ties course record; Lincicome, Lewis share LPGA lead The Associated Press

HUMBLE, Texas — Jimmy Walker tied the course record with a 9-under 63 on Thursday to take a two-shot lead over Josh Teater and Nick O’Hern after the first round of the Houston Open. Walker matched the record set by Johnson Wagner and Adam Scott in the first round of the 2008 tournament. Wagner went on to win that year. Chris Kirk was three back after a 66, and Steve Stricker, John Rollins, Nathan Green and Brendan Steele shot 67s and were four behind. Most of the big-name players were in the hunt, as they finetune their games for next week’s Masters. Lee Westwood and Padraig Harrington were in the large pack of players at 4 under, Phil Mickelson and Retief Goosen

were at 2 under and former Masters champions Angel Cabrera and Fred Couples were 1 under. Walker Calm conditions yielded low scores all day at the Tournament Course at Redstone. A total of 32 players broke 70 and 87 players shot even-par (72) or better. Walker needed only 23 putts, the fewest of any player in the first round, to make up for several erratic tee shots. “I’m not going to say like, ’Oh, every time I hit the green, this one is going in,”’ Walker said. “I just kept stroking it. I felt like I kind of got back to feeling that stroke that I was using earlier in the year, when I was putting so good and

playing so good.” Walker changed putters at the start of the season, and he’s made six cuts in eight starts and already has three top-10 finishes this year. His round Thursday matched the lowest of his career. “When you putt well,” he said, “it cures a lot of ills, for sure.” Like Walker, Teater and Rollins also need victories to earn invitations to Augusta next week. And as long as they’re in town, they’re both hoping to see their favorite college basketball teams take home a trophy, too. Teater is a die-hard Kentucky fan and Rollins is the only VCU graduate on the PGA Tour. Both have tickets to Saturday’s Final Four games — ButlerVCU and Connecticut-Kentucky — at Reliant Stadium, about

25 miles from the course. And both are hoping they have a tough decision to make on Monday — fly to Augusta to get ready for the Masters or stay in Houston an extra day to see their team play for a national championship. “I don’t want to cross a bridge that I haven’t gotten to,” Teater said. “If it comes to that, I’ll probably stay for the game. But Monday night, it would be nice to be there, celebrating with everybody else.” Teater wore a blue shirt and a white belt with a “UK” logo on his belt buckle during his round. He went to Morehead State in Kentucky, but grew up rooting for the Wildcats. Kraft Nabisco Championship RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — Brittany Lincicome and Stacy

Lewis overcame the stifling desert heat for 6-under 66s Thursday, taking the first-round lead at the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Sandra Gal and Mika Miyazato were one shot back at the LPGA Tour’s first major of the year. Lincicome is the 2009 Kraft Nabisco champion, while Lewis is still looking for her first LPGA Tour victory. They sometimes room together on the road, and they went to dinner together Wednesday night before making identically excellent starts at Mission Hills. Temperatures topped 90 degrees by midday in the Palm Springs area, and caddies were given permission to take off their jumpsuits when it rose above 100 during the afternoon rounds.

as it was prior to the 2007 season. District 2 will get only one state qualifier in the 16-team state tournament. District 3 gets the most – nine – because it has 98 teams playing in the spring. District 2 has 20. District 11 gets three teams, District 12 gets two and District 1 gets one. The state playoffs are set to begin May 31.

TOP PLAYERS It’s tough to single out specific players, so here are the ones who made The Times Leader All-WVC team last year as underclassmen. Sherry Chen, Wyoming Valley West: Quickness and pursuit ability make her a top-notch defender. Lindsey Humanik, Coughlin: Plays a big role defensively, but can also counterattack. Kelcie Hromisin, Wyoming Valley West: Very quick forward who will lead the attack. Isabella Jaffin, Berwick: Perennial all-star who has been the heart and soul of the offense. Colleen McDonald, Dallas: Arguably the most complete player in the WVC. Kelly Sheptock, Berwick: Made an impression last season on defense as a freshman. Olivia Spagnola, Coughlin: A midfielder who shines on both offense and defense.

T E A M - B Y-T E A M C A P S U L E S Teams are listed in predicted order of finish.

DIVISION 1-A

1. Dallas 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 13-1 Div. A, 1st 2010 postseason: D2-2A champion; lost 3-2 to Trinity in second round of state playoffs. Coach: Chris Scharff Home field: School district campus Players to watch: Seniors – Meghan Gallis, FB; Sara Kneal, FB; Demetra Szatkowski, FB. Juniors – Kassondra Michno, FB; Colleen McDonald, MF/F; Sabrina Zurek, MF. Sophomores – Ashley Dunbar, F; Wendy Greenwood, MF; Amber Yang, K. Outlook: The Mountaineers will certainly miss Times Leader Player of the Year Ellen Arnaud and divisional MVP Tara Connors, but don’t write them off. There is plenty of talent returning led by McDonald, who is arguably the best all-around player in the WVC. Szatkowski is also one of the WVC’s best defenders, and Gallis was a first-team all-star last season. The pieces are in place for another divisional title and another District 2 championship as well. 2. Coughlin 2010 WVC Record/ Finish: 10-3-1 Div. A, tied 2nd 2010 postseason: D2-2A runnerup; lost 2-0 to Donegal in first round of state playoffs. Coach: Joe Spagnuolo Home field: Dan Flood School Players to watch: Seniors – Crystal Chudoba, Kristi Gabriele, Nour Hasan, Brittany Kulesza, Korey Patrizi, Jenna Silliboy, Alexis Spagnola, Olivia Spagnola. Juniors – Grace Fazzi, Lindsey Humanik, Marissa Lecara, Bailey Novak, Ivy Nulton, Amanda Sax. Outlook: The Crusaders have arguably the best blend of talent and experience in the WVC, and that could lead to the division and district titles. Humanik and Olivia Spagnola were all-WVC last season and first-team all-stars along with Hasan. Nulton, Patrizi, Alexis Spagnola and Sax were second-team stars. The Crusaders lost a few players to graduation, but have enough depth to fill those holes. 3. Berwick 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 9-3-2 Div. A, 4th 2010 postseason: Lost 3-1 to Coughlin in D2-2A semifinals. Coach: Paul DiPippa Home field: Crispin Field Players to watch: Seniors – Bella Jaffin, F; Olivia Jaffin, FB. Juniors – Abby Takacs, MF; Jade Welsh, F; Sarah Wilczynski, K. Sophomores – Caty Davenport, MF; Bridget Orlando, FB; Kelly Sheptock, FB. Outlook: Berwick has eight starters back and should be right in the battle with Coughlin and Dallas for the division and top seed in districts. Jaffin was all-WVC once again and Sheptock was the only freshman to get the honor last season. Orlando and Welsh earned second-team divisional honors. Best part of the eight returning starters is they are spread throughout the field, giving Berwick no weak spot to exploit. 4. Holy Redeemer

2010 WVC Record/Finish: 5-9 Div. A, 5th 2010 postseason: Lost 1-0 to Lake-Lehman in D2-2A quarterfinals. State classification: 2A Coach: Bob Hughes Home field: Eddie White Field Players to watch: Seniors – Allison Capaci, FB; Beth Kolodziej, K; Alexandra Marriggi, FB; Danielle Phillips, F: Deena Prescavage, FB; Kiera Stachowiak, MF. Juniors – Shaina Dougherty, F; Alexa Kalaft, K; Erin Gruber, MF; Hallie Rexer, MF. Freshman – Nina Paoloni, FB. Outlook: Redeemer could be one team that makes significant improvement this season. Capaci was a first-team all-star last season, while Mariggi and Rexer, who has verbally committed to St. Francis, made the second team. To take the next step, the Royals need to get more scoring against the upper tier teams. The defense should be solid. 5. Crestwood 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 4-10 Div. A, 6th 2010 postseason: Lost 6-0 to Berwick in D2-2A semifinals. Coach: Pasquale Calabrese Home field: Football stadium Players to watch: Seniors – Marianna Hererra, MF; Amanda Lee, FB; Samantha Pruce, FB. Juniors – Sarah Andrews, MF; Hannah Coffin, F. Sophomore – Emily Orrson, MF. Freshman – Gabby Termini, MF/F. Outlook: Crestwood is a team to watch as the season progresses. The Comets have some experience back, but will be relying heavily on underclassmen that includes a promising group of freshmen. The core will form around Herrera, a first-team all-star last year, and Andrews and Lee, who were second-team selections. The Comets probably won’t make a run at the division, but could pull off a couple surprises late in the season.

DIVISION 1-B

1. Lake-Lehman 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 8-0-4 Div. B, 2nd 2010 postseason: Lost 3-1 to Dallas in D2-2A semifinals. Home field: Football stadium Coach: Kelly Spencer Adamshick Players to watch: Seniors – Sarah Bray, F; Cassi Cragle, M; Alexa Decker, FB; Kriisty Komrowski, FB; Jenn O’Brien, FB. Junior – Nikki Sutliff, MF. Sophomores – Ashley Jackson, K; Karen Yamrick, FB. Freshmen – Kaylee Hillard, MF; Shoshana Mahoney, F; Emily Sutton, MF. Outlook: Lehman could look different this season. The Black Knights were known for their defense in recent years, but Spencer expects the offense to be much better. Bray, a second-team all-star last season, is the top offensive threat back. There is also experience at midfield and defense, although losing keeper Becca Stull, one of the best ever to play the position in the WVC, will be a big void to fill. 2. Wyoming Valley West 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 8-4 Div. B, 3rd 2010 postseason: Lost 4-0 to Abington Heights in D2-3A semifinals.

Coach: Mike Davitt Home field: Spartan Stadium Players to watch: Seniors – Sherry Chen, FB; Kelsey Keefer, MF; Kaleigh Reynolds, MF. Juniors – Kelcie Hromisin, F; Carrie Sedeski, MF. Outlook: The Spartans are a legitimate contender for the division title. Chen and Hromisin were All-WVC selections last season. Chen is a quick-footed defender, while Hromisin is a playmaker who makes the offense go. Keefer earned first-team honors and will be a factor at midfield. There are a few holes to fill – goalkeeping perhaps the biggest – but there is plenty of talent to choose from. 3. Delaware Valley 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 10-0-2 Div. B, 1st 2010 postseason: Lost 1-0 to Hazleton Area in D2-3A semifinals. Coach: Donnel Leiva-Vazquez Home field: High school Players to watch: Seniors – Mindy Dennis, Kalie Mackey, Marissa Schick. Juniors – Amy Ahlers, Kyrsten Brockmann. Freshman – Anna Chamberlain. Outlook: DelVal will have a decisively tougher schedule, so it will be a team to keep an eye on throughout the season. Three first-team all-stars plus others have graduated, but there is a nucleus of players to build around. Brockmann was a second-team all-star and Mackey was an honorable mention selection and the two will anchor the defense. Dennis was honorable mention as a midfielder. The Warriors’ main concern will be on the attack where graduation took a toll. They should be competitive with everyone. 4. Hazleton Area 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 10-0-1 Div. C, 1st 2010 postseason: Lost 4-0 to Abington Heights in D2-3A championship game. Coach: Dan Matriccino Home field: Football stadium Players to watch: Seniors – Brandi Benko, FB; Alyssa Bogert, FB; Nicole Kracum, MF; Maria Notaro, MF; Ashley Schoener, MF: Nicole Semenza, FB/MF; Sara Spock, FB/MF. Juniors – Megan Baranko, K; Krista Leitner, MF. Sophomores – Stephanie Fuchs, FB; Mariah LaPorte, F. Outlook: All-WVC selections Chiara Matriccino and Danielle Semenza graduated, taking most of the offense with them. So in the early going generating offense will be challenging. The defense should be solid with second-team all-star Nicole Semenza and honorable mention selection Bogart back. So are six more starters from last season, making a successful season likely. 5. Nanticoke 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 2-12 Div. A, 7th 2010 postseason: none Coach: Ryan Amos Home field: Football stadium Players to watch: Seniors – Carlee Komorski, F; Paige Pientka, MF. Junior – Cassie Yalch, MF. Sophomore – Brittany Sugalski, MF/FB. Outlook: Nanticoke should be solid at midfield as well as defense. There could be some work to do on

offense and at goalkeeping where the Trojanettes were hit hard by graduation. Still, Nanticoke has a lot of good athletes, although on-field experience is lacking. The main objective will likely be improving every game and picking up a few more victories.

DIVISION 2-A

1. North Pocono 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 8-3-1 Div. C, 2nd 2010 postseason: Lost 10-0 to Coughlin in D2-2A quarterfinals. Coach: Hosiah “Dave” Davis Home field: New high school, Covington Twp. Players to watch: Seniors – Corrine Glassman, FB; Chelsea Kincel, FB; Jessica Korshnak, F; Fjollza Shabani, MF; Sarah Wicker, MF. Juniors – Alyssa Hamill, Jr.; Michelle Stefanelli, MF; Meghan Utter, K. Outlook: The Trojans were very young last season, yet turned in a strong season. Four all-stars return, including first-team selection Hamill, who will anchor what should be a strong defense. Midfield also looks impressive. The downside is North Pocono will likely start slowly due to lack of outdoor time. But once the Trojans get rolling they could roll into first place in the division. 2. Honesdale 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 5-6-1 Div. B, 4th 2010 postseason: none Coach: Eric Eisele Home field: Stourbridge Elementary, Players to watch: Seniors – Taylor Corbin, MF; Natalie Hoff, MF; Randi Jo Kowalczyk, F; Alicia Manzione, FB; Benita Pursch, FB. Sophomores – Rhea Fowler, MF; Ally Hicks, F; Seneca Propst, MF. Outlook: Hoff was a first-team all-star last year and Manzione was a second-team selection. If they and the other seniors blend well with a solid sophomore class, the Hornets will likely improve quite a bit on last year’s record. The division is wide open, and there’s little reason to doubt Honesdale’s chances to finish at the top. 3. Wyoming Seminary 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 1-13 Div. A, 8th 2010 postseason: none Coach: John Hannigan Home field: Forty Fort Soccer Fields or Payne-Pettibone Players to watch: Seniors – Hope Charney, FB; Caroline Meuser, F; Allison Parkhurst, FB; Lucie Povova, K. Juniors – Jahneece Davis, F/FB; Katrina Grosek, MF/FB. Sophomores – Jessica Casterline, FB/K; Christine Harris, F/MF; Bridget McMullan, MF. Freshmen – Julia Grosek, MF; Molly Turner, MF; Margi Wiles, F. Outlook: Seminary will get away from the WVC’s perennial powers by dropping down a division, so that should help. The Blue Knights return seven letterwinners, but overall this is a very young team. The coaching staff has been moving players to different positions, so continuity might not be a strong suit early. Nonetheless, Seminary could be the dark horse for the divisional crown.

4. Pittston Area 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 2-10 Div. B, tied 6th 2010 postseason: Lost 5-0 to Hazleton Area in D2-3A quarterfinals. Coach: Nicole Tieso Home field: Primary Center, Rock St., Hughestown Players to watch: Seniors – Sara Kielbasa, FB; Kaylene Sutkowski, MF. Juniors – Danielle Fereck, MF/F; Sarah Kosik, FB. Sophomore – Elizabeth Mikitish, MF/F. Outlook: Pittston Area returns some experienced players, but overall the team is very young, with 10 freshmen on the 31-player roster. Add in nine sophomores, and it seems clear the Patriots will experience some growing pains throughout the season. However, the seniors and other returnees have taken the lead in guiding the squad. If the newcomers blend with the veterans quickly, Pittston Area will likely increase its win total from 2010. 5. Hanover Area 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 2-10 Div. B, tied 6th 2010 postseason: none Coach: Brian Bannon Home field: High school Players to watch: Seniors – Krista Colorusso, MF/F; Mary Kate Keating, MF/F. Junior – Gaby Murphy, F/MF. Sophomores – Kayla Keating, MF/F; Samantha Masher, FB/MF. Outlook: Mary Kate Keating, a first-team all-star last year, gives Hanover Area a dangerous frontline player, while Masher is a strong defender. After those two, the Hawkeyes will need to sort out the lineup with limited on-field time. Another problem is numbers as only 17 players are on the roster. Staying healthy, obviously, will be the key to improvement.

DIVISION 2-B

1. Wyoming Area 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 8-4 Div. C, 3rd 2010 postseason: Lost 10-1 to Dallas in D2-2A quarterfinals. Coach: Mike Pryor Home field: 10th St., Wyoming Players to watch: Seniors – Michelle Gitkos, FB; Sarah Mack, MF; Katie Scalzo, MF/F; Kourtny Schwerdtman, F; Megan Yurek, K. Outlook: Pryor takes over as coach and has a nice group of returning players with which to work. Scalzo, a first-team all-star last season, has one of the strongest legs in the WVC and can score from anywhere. Schwerdtman adds stability up front and Mack does the same at midfield. Yurek and Gutkos pace the defense. If the Warriors can fill some voids caused by graduation, they could win the division. 2. Meyers 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 5-7 Div. C, tied 4th 2010 postseason: none Coach: Jason Nolan Home field: Gordon Avenue Players to watch: Seniors – Melinda Formola, FB; Christine Knooren, FB; Maureen Lisman, F; Kaylee Macko, MF; Ariel Weidler, MF. Juniors – Leanne McManus, F; Alivia Weidler, K. Outlook: Meyers will be playing

with heavy hearts after the passing of teammate Megan Horst. The Mohawks are dedicating the season to her. The season could see improvement and perhaps a run at the division. Six seniors return who logged significant time as underclassmen and the goalkeeping is experienced as well. Knooren, Lisman and Macko were first-team all-stars last year. 3. Tunkhannock 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 4-8 Div. C, 6th 2010 postseason: none Coach: Kaaron Swanson Home field: Roslund Elem., Rte. 29 Players to watch: Seniors – Alissa Franko, FB; Maria Romero, MF. Juniors – Ameila Ayers, FB; Spencer Corby, K; Janel Kalmanowicz, F; Brielle Sherman, F; Vicki Williams, F. Sophomores – Anna Boecker, FB; Mackenzie Drungell, MF; Katie Proulx, FB; Rachel Russell, MF. Outlook: Tunkhannock returns several experienced players and should be able to improve on last year’s record. Ayers and Romero are returning second-team all-stars and will anchor the midfield and defense, respectively. There is also stability up front with three returnees and in goal. The Tigers should be competitive in every game and could make a run at the division if things fall into place. 4. GAR 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 5-7 Div. C, tied 4th 2010 postseason: none Coach: Stephanie Frank Home field: old Wilkes-Barre Twp. H.S. Players to watch: Seniors – Emilee Bubblo, MF; Kaitlyn Dunbar, MF; Ashley Maloney, FB; Alicia Riggsbee, MF/F. Juniors – Kaleigh Bubblo, MF/FB; Caitlyn Kovach, FB; Brianne Majikes, FB. Sophomore – Freshman – Jillianna Leco, K. Outlook: Frank becomes the fifth new GAR coach in as many years and will inherit the same concern, a lack of numbers. Only 12 players are on the roster, so staying healthy is imperative. The Grenadiers graduated a lot of speed up front, but there are still some solid players on the roster. Leco and Bubblo were second-team all-stars last season, while Riggsbee was an honorable mention choice. 5. MMI Prep 2010 WVC Record/Finish: 0-12, 7th 2010 postseason: none Coach: Kim McNulty Home field: Raiders Field, 23rd St., Hazleton Players to watch: Cassie Caldwell, FB; Rachael Daniels, MF; Julia Dasher, FB; Katlyn Frey, FB; Alexis Haupt, F; Cathy Hood FB; Lyndsey Joseph, F; Erin Kislan, F; Gabbie Lobitz, MF; Amanda Miller, K. Outlook: It’s been a tough road for MMI, the smallest school in the conference with just 59 girls. The Preppers made some inroads in 2009 with two victories, but backslid last year. First-team all-star Diana Anthony has graduated, but there is some experience returning. The main goals will probably be improving throughout the season and picking up a couple victories.

Martinek, Parenteau lead Isles past Rangers The Associated Press

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Radek Martinek and P.A. Parenteau both had a goal and assist during the Islanders’ four-goal second period, and New York put the area-rival Rangers back into postseason peril with a 6-2 victory Thursday night. After Blake Comeau got the Islanders even 1-1 at 3:24, Martinek put them in front 33 seconds later. Things settled down for a bit, but the Islanders struck for two more goals 1:16 apart — the first by Jesse Joensuu at 13:28 and the second by Parenteau to turn it into a rout. Matt Moulson scored his 31st goal of the season against backup Chad Johnson with 11:22 left, and Trevor Gillies made it 6-1 at 14:00. Even a one-goal deficit seemed daunting to the Rangers, who lost for the second time in two nights. Thrashers 1, Flyers 0 PHILADELPHIA — Nik Antropov scored the only goal, and Chris Mason stopped 43 shots for his first shutout of the season in the Atlanta Thrashers’ win over the Philadelphia Flyers. Mason earned his 21st career shutout and was sensational against the Eastern Conferenceleading Flyers. He stopped 14 shots in the second period and got some timely offensive help for his 13th win of the season. Antropov scored his 15th goal midway through the third period and it stuck to keep Atlanta’s faint playoff hopes alive. The Thrashers crashed after a 20-15-6 start and will need to win their final five games and get some help to make the postseason for only the second time in team history. Atlanta went 3-1 vs. Philadelphia this season. Senators 4, Panthers 1 SUNRISE, Fla. — Rookie Colin Greening scored twice in the second period and the Ottawa Senators completed a season sweep of the Florida Panthers with a victory. Nick Foligno and Filip Kuba also scored for the Senators, who have won six in a row against Florida dating to last season. Marek Svatos had two assists. Craig Anderson made 37 saves to improve to 9-4-1 since being acquired in a trade with Colorado in February. Michal Repik scored for the Panthers, whose season-high losing streak stretched to seven games. Scott Clemmensen, starting in goal with Tomas Vokoun nursing a back injury, stopped 19 shots.

2:30 into overtime to give the Washington Capitals a 5-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Capitals had a 3-on-2 rush, resulting in Brooks Laich’s shot that goalie Steve Mason couldn’t handle. The rebound went to Chimera and he tapped the puck in to give Washington its 12th victory in March. The Capitals reached 101 points, crossing the 100-point plateau for the third straight season, to move within a point of Philadelphia — a 1-0 loser to Atlanta — for the Eastern Conference lead. Scottie Upshaw forced overtime for Columbus, fighting off two Washington defenders to score his 22nd goal of the season with 5:37 remaining in the third period. Maple Leafs 4, Bruins 3 BOSTON — Nazem Kadri scored the only shootout goal to help the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Boston Bruins. With the point for reaching overtime, the Bruins clinched a tie for the Northeast Division title. The next Boston win or loss by Montreal will give the Bruins the division title. Joffrey Lupul scored twice for Toronto, Luke Scheen added a goal and former Bruins forward Phil Kessel had a pair of assists. Brad Marchand, David Krejci and Andrew Ference scored for Boston. Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, who made 28 saves, made a

right-pad save on Mikhail Grabovski’s penalty shot 43 seconds into overtime, but Kadri beat him with a backhand shot over the left shoulder in the shootout. Tyler Seguin, Michael Ryder and Rich Peverley each failed in the shootout for the Bruins. James Reimer made a glove stop on Peverley to end it. Lightning 2, Penguins 1 TAMPA, Fla. — Martin St. Louis scored his 30th goal of the

season, helping the Tampa Bay Lightning clinch their first playoff berth since 2007 with a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night. Steve Downie also scored for the Lightning, who have won three in a row following a fourgame losing skid. Pittsburgh, which had won its previous four road games, got a goal from Michael Rupp. Penguins center Sidney Crosby, sidelined for nearly three months with a concussion, resumed skating with his teammates in the game-day practice. The Pittsburgh captain, out since Jan. 6., is not ready yet to participate in full practices. A return to game action for the postseason has not been completely ruled out. Wild 4, Oilers 2 ST. PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota goalie Niklas Backstrom ended a six-start winless streak, beating his favorite opponent in the Wild’s victory over the Edmonton Oilers. Defenseman Tom Gilbert and Linus Omark each had powerplay goals — a rarity for Edmonton’s struggling special teams unit — but the last-place Oilers fell to 0-8-3 in their last 11 games. Antti Miettinen, Marek Zidlicky, Brad Staubitz and Martin Havlat scored for Minnesota. Backstrom has never lost to the

Thiessen named first team AHL All-Star Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins goaltender Brad Thiessen was named to the AHL All-Star first team on Thursday. Thiessen, 25, began his season with eight consecutive victories and has never looked back en route to amassing an AHL-high 32 wins (32-7-1) and a top-ranked 1.88 goals-against average through 42 appearances for the league-leading Penguins. A native of Aldergrove, B.C., Thiessen is tied for the AHL lead with seven shutouts, ranks seventh in save percentage (.924), and has not lost back-to-back appearances all season long. He could become the first AHL goaltender to record more than 30 wins and fewer than 10 losses since Hartford’s Jason LaBarbera in 2003-04 (34-9-9). Thiessen is the fourth Wilkes-Barre/Scranton player and second goaltender to be named to the AHL’s First All-Star Team, joining defenseman John Slaney (2000-01), goaltender Dany Sabourin (2005-06), and defenseman Micki DuPont (2006-07). Defensman Ben Lovejoy and forward Janne Pesonen were named to the AHL Second All-Star Team in 2008-09. Other players named as first team all-stars were: defensemen Marc-Andre Gragnani (Portland) and Maxim Noreau (Houston), left wing Alexandre Giroux (Oklahoma City), center Corey Locke (Binghamton) and right wing Mark Mancari (Portland).

Oilers, improving to 14-0 in his career against them. With both teams out of the playoff picture — the Oilers were never in it this season — this game was all about streaks. The Wild beat Edmonton at home for the 16th time in a row, matching the longest current run of consecutive home wins against one team in the NHL. They’ve outscored the Oilers 58-21 during the stretch. NBA Celtics 107, Spurs 97 SAN ANTONIO — Rajon Rondo had 22 points and 14 assists, Paul Pierce scored 21 and the Boston Celtics stopped slipping further from first in the

Eastern Conference, beating the slumping San Antonio Spurs. Kevin Garnett added 20 points and the Celtics, winning for just the second time in five games, moved within 2 games of Chicago for the No. 1 playoff seed in the East. The Spurs stayed stuck in an untimely tailspin. The NBA’s winningest team lost its fifth in a row and is in danger of falling out of first place after comfortably being No. 1 in the West all season. Tony Parker led the Spurs with 23 points and Tim Duncan, playing for the first time in five games after spraining his ankle last week, had 20 points and 13 rebounds.

CMYK March auto sales

The employment report

Car companies are expected to be the beneficiaries of the rising price of gasoline, because consumers are looking for smaller cars that cost less to gas up. March sales numbers that come out today are expected to be up 16.5 percent from a year ago, and 25 percent from February. J.D. Power and Associates predicts that 24 percent of cars bought by individuals in March were small cars. So the Honda Civic and Ford Fiesta are likely to show big gains.

The Labor Department’s monthly est. report on employment is arguably the 200k 185k ’10 ’11 most important economic number for investors right now. And they’re look- 150 ing for more signs of improvement. Although the unemployment rate is 100 expected to be unchanged at 8.9 percent, economists are predicting a 50 moderate increase in jobs. Investors and economists are likely to be more optimistic after the government 0 reported a drop in the number of O N D J F M people applying for unemployment Sources: Bureau of Labor benefits.

Factory orders take a fall

U.S. factories orders fell in February, as the government cut demand for military planes and communications equipment while businesses bought fewer computers, turbines and power generators. Orders to U.S. factories slipped 0.1 percent in February after three straight monthly gains, the Commerce Department reported Thursday. When excluding transportation, orders rose 0.1 percent. That’s the seventh straight increase for that category. Still, a key measure of what businesses spent on capital goods fell for the second straight month. Even with the decline, factory orders totaled $446 billion last month. That’s a level economists view as healthy and it is 26.4 percent above the recession low hit in March 2009. Economists expect the sector will grow in the months ahead, based on strong demand for exports and tax cuts designed to encourage businesses to spend more on capital goods.

Rite Aid sales down

Rite Aid Corp. said Thursday that a key sales measurement slipped in March because of lower sales of Easterrelated products. Rite Aid said sales at stores open at least one year fell 0.1 percent over the four weeks ended March 26. At the stores open at least a year, pharmacy revenue grew 0.8 percent, and sales of non-pharmacy items like seasonal goods, candy, and cosmetics fell 1.8 percent. Prescriptions filled at those stores rose 0.6 percent. Sales at stores open at least one year is considered a key measurement of retailer health because it excludes results from stores that opened or closed in the last year. Easter was on April 4 of 2010, which put the holiday and the related sales in Rite Aid’s March period. This year, the holiday falls on April 24.

Car production to restart

Honda and Mazda say they will resume limited production at several Japanese factories in early April, but full production depends on the flow of parts. Honda Motor Co. said Thursday that two assembly plants will restart April 11, but only at half the normal rate. Honda also says it will start making parts on Monday for regions outside Japan. Honda cautioned that the parts supply situation remains fluid. Mazda Motor Corp. says it will start making cars at the Hiroshima and Hofu plants Monday. A decision on resuming full-scale production will come later. Many Japanese factories are restarting nearly three weeks after the country was hit by a devastating earthquake and tsunami.

Orbitz cuts rental firms

One-stop shopping on Orbitz Worldwide got whacked again for consumers looking to book a specific airline, hotel and rental car from that single site. Beginning Friday, Alamo Rent A Car and National Car Rental brands will no longer be available on the Orbitz Worldwide site. Orbitz, the second-largest online travel agent in the U.S., has replaced Alamo and National car rentals with Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group (DTG).

Some of the recent economic numbers have pointed to a leveling off in manufacturing. Investors will get another reading from the Institute for Supply Management, which releases its assessment of manufacturing activity during March. Investors will want to see if hiring is still rising at the nation’s factories. They’ll also want to see how fast prices are rising for raw materials – and how much of those costs are being passed on to customers.

NANJING, China — Financial leaders of the Group of 20 top economies appeared to reach informal agreement Thursday on the need for China’s currency to have a wider role in global finance, but not as a substitute for the U.S. dollar. French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde said the daylong meeting agreed the G-20 should study including China’s yuan in the basket of currencies that sets the value of the International Monetary Fund’s SDRs, or Special Drawing Rights — a quasi currency created by the IMF

that is used in dealings with and between member governments. “We raised with our Chinese friends the idea of including the yuan, under conditions and a time frame to be agreed upon,” Lagarde said. The basket now includes the dollar, Japanese yen, euro and British pound. Including the yuan would underline China’s increased clout in the global economy and finance after it last year overtook Japan to become the second-biggest economy. It might also serve as a carrot that other G-20 members hope will encourage Beijing to relax controls that limit the Chi-

nese currency’s appreciation. Since the gathering in the eastern Chinese city of Nanjing was not an official G-20 meeting, there was no formal agreement, Lagarde said. She also clarified there was “no suggestion whatsoever that the dollar be replaced by SDRs,” an option that has been raised by China as a way of reducing global reliance on the dollar for trade and as a reserve currency. SDRs are allocated by the IMF based on each country’s voting rights in the organization and the fund acts as a middleman between countries that want to exchange them for freely traded currencies.

Small firms hopeful

By MATT HUGHES mhughes@timesleader.com

A new survey of small business owners released Thursday finds the economic outlook improving for the nation and the state of Pennsylvania in the spring. PNC Financial Services Group’s sixmonth Economic Outlook Survey found that half of small-business owners statewide and nationally expect sales to improve in the next six months, but rising non-labor costs threaten to squeeze profits and raise selling prices. “The recovery light hasn’t turned green, but it’s a lighter shade of yellow,” Stuart Hoffman, chief economist for The PNC Financial Services Group Inc., said in a statement. “The survey results support our view that the half-speed recovery that began in July 2009 is transitioning into a selfsustaining economic expansion.” The survey was conducted between Jan. 31and March 4 and polled1,445 owners and senior managers of businesses with annual revenues between $100,000 and $250,000. In Pennsylvania, the poll found 50 percent of business owners expect sales to increase in the next six months, up from 43 percent in the fall. The outlook for Pennsylvania job-seekers has also improved, according to the survey, which found that 15 percent of business owners expect to hire full-time employeesinthenexthalf-year,upfrom12percent in the fall, while only 8 percent plan to downsize, down from 11 percent six months earlier. The national unemployment rate of 8.9 percent is expected to change little when new statistics are released today. The region including Lackawanna, Luzerne and Wyoming counties continues to holdthehighestunemploymentrateofPennsylvania’s14 metro areas, though unemployment in the region dropped four-tenths of a percentage point to 9.1percent from December to January. Unemployment was at 9 percent in Luzerne in January, a percentage point lower than the rate a year earlier.

quarters of respondents in the national poll said a sustained rise in energy prices would negatively impact their businesses. Bruce Fendler, owner of Fendler Distributing/Harry’s Market in Wilkes-Barre and a respondent in the survey, said sales have risen slightly at his business, but economic uncertainty has led customers to wait until the last minute to place orders. Rising fuel costs have also resulted in higher commodity prices, he said.

“It’s heading up, and nobody’s really surprised when they see something up,” Fendler said of rising food prices. “Everything is commodity-driven.” Fendler said he thinks Luzerne County willalsobeslowerinitsrecoverythanother areas of the state. “I’malwaystoldwelagbehindhereinthe Valley,” Fendler said. “We lag behind when it’s in recovery, and we lag behind when it’s headed down hill.”

Fed names banks that took loans By JEANNINE AVERSA AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve is naming the banks that drew emergency loans during the financial crisis, offering information on its oldest lending tool for the first time in the central bank’s nearly100-year history. The Fed was compelled to make the information public after the Supreme Court rejected a bid by major banks to keep it secret. At the height of the 2008 financial crisis, the Fed loaned as much as $110 billion through the socalled “discount window.” The documents offered details about which banks borrowed money from the lending program from August 2007 through March 2010. Big U.S. banks such as Wachovia and Morgan Stanley relied on the Fed for short-term loans of $6 billion and $1.25 billion, respectively, in the fall of 2008, the documents showed. So did some of the largest foreign banks — Barclay’s borrowed $1billion. But smaller institutions also drew from the discount window at the critical time for the financial sector. The Savings Bank of Maine and the Bank of Yazoo City in Mississippi both borrowed millions, the documents showed. Hardly any loans are now being madebecausebanksareinstronger financial shape and economic conditions have improved. BloombergL.P.hadsuedtheFed seeking details about the Fed’s discount window lending as well as other Fed loans made during the crisis.Asimilarlawsuitwaslaterfiled by News Corp.’s Fox News Network LLC. Other news organizations including The Associated Press had filed briefs with the appellant court in their support. The Fed had said that some of the information being sought was made public in December. At that time,theFedrevealeddetailsabout all of its crisis-lending programs — except for commercial banks that drew loans through its discount window program. MostoftheFed’scrisis-eralending — more than $3 trillion worth — camethroughthoseotherprograms. Fed documents showed that it had given trillions in emergency aid to U.S. and foreign banks as well as companies. The disclosures were required under the financial overhaul law enacted last year. The new law says the Fed beginning in late 2012 must provide information on any commercial banks that draw emergency loans from its discount window, although those details will stay secret for about two years after the borrowing takes place.

‘Walking on water’ products could be deadly

By JENNIFER C. KERR Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The government is warning people to stay out of those giant seethrough inflatable spheres known as “water walking balls” because of the risk of suffocation or drowning. The Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday that it “does not know of any safe way to use” the products, which are popular at amusement parks, resorts, malls and carnivals. They resemble hamster balls but are large enough for humans. People climb into the plastic, airtight balls and then roll

around — or try to walk — on water in pools, lakes or rivers. “Wewanttotellthepublichow dangerous these products are before someone is killed,” said Inez Tenenbaum, chairman of the commission. “Our investigation into water walking balls will not stop with today’s warning.” The agency is worried about too little oxygen in the balls as well as the buildup of carbon dioxide. Another concern: the fact that the product has no emergency exit and can be opened only by a person outside of the ball — a serious problem if a person inside the ball experiences distress.

The commission said it is aware of two incidents in which people were hurt. In the first, a 5-year-old girl in Kingston, Mass., passed out last year while inside a ball for a brief time. In the other, a young boy suffered a broken arm when the ball he was in fell out of a shallow above-ground pool onto the hard ground. The balls, CPSC says, could also spring a leak or puncture, raising the drowning risk, especially with young children who can’t swim. Calls to manufacturers such as Eurobungy USA in Miami were not immediately returned.

If you owned energy stocks or Apple during the first quarter or the last year — congratulations. You were one of the big winners. But if you bought gasoline, you’re probably feeling a little battered. And if you wanted higher Treasury yields, you had a good quarter but the last year has been painful. A look at who won and who lost:

Energy stocks Oil is back above $100 per barrel. That made energy No. 1 among the 10 industries in the S&P 500 over the last three and 12 months. Apple The iPad launched last year is a hit, and so is this year’s version. Its stock rose 8 percent in the first quarter to $348.51. Credit Suisse’s forecast: $500 in a year. Dividend investors More than 100 companies in the S&P 500 raised dividends during the quarter, up from 66 in the fourth quarter and 70 a year ago. Investor uncertainty Unrest in the Middle East and Japan’s nuclear crisis made investors anxious. Individual investors lost some bullishness during the quarter, according to a survey by the American Association of Individual Investors. But

they’re more optimistic than a year ago. Indian stocks After being a top performer early in the bull market, India’s Sensex index fell 5 percent in the first quarter, partly because of inflation. Earlier gains mean it’s up 11 percent over the last year. Bond yields Investors including PIMCO’s Bill Gross dumped Treasurys. The 10-year Treasury yield, which moves opposite its price, ended the quarter at 3.46 percent, up from 3.37 percent at the end of 2010 but down from 3.83 percent a year earlier. Drivers A gallon of regular gas rose through the quarter to an average $3.61 – up 29 percent from $2.80 a year ago. Stan Choe, Elizabeth Gramling • AP

Welcome to the wacky weather month of April when we can have deep,wind driven snow and 90 degree temperatures. This year we begin the fourth month with a few hours of steady snow much to the dismay of every single person reading this column this morning. At least it's only a nuisance snowfall of a few inches with light winds. Later today, the snow will diminish as temperatures rise to near 40 or higher, and much of it will melt soon away as snow usually does in April. Skies will begin to clear tonight, but a steadfast northwest wind over the weekend will keep temperatures colder than normal with only limited sunshine. - Tom Clark
