Review: Vets’raises skew numbers

Experienced teachers would see their salaries rise significantly more than their newer colleagues

EXETER — The two sides in the Wyoming Area School District teacher strike have said the differences at the negotiating table are small, yet critical questions of pay. A Times Leader review of the potential impact from the latest offers shows that, dollar-wise, the differences would be small for most teachers individually, but are much

greater when comparing veteran teachers to relative newcomers. Assuming that raises were spread equally among all teachers — not a guarantee — newcomers with a bachelor’s degree would see annual increases ranging from 0.48 percent to 2.77 percent over the six-year offer by the school board. By comparison, a teacher with eight years experience and a master’s degree would see increases ranging from 3.86 percent to 8.64 percent. But that high rate rises from a deferral of any retroactive raise in 2011-12, substantially increasing Clark Van Orden | The Times Leader the raise teachers would get for 2012-13.

Senate panel backs strike against Syria
Measure heads to the full Senate as Obama hints he may retaliate even without congressional OK
DAVID ESPO and DONNA CASSATA U.S. combat operations on the ground. The measure is expected to reach the Senate floor next week, although the timing for a vote is uncertain. Sen. Rand Paul, a Kentucky conservative with strong tea party ties, has threatened a filibuster. The House also is reviewing Obama’s request, but its timetable is even less certain and the measure could face a rockier time there. The administration blames Assad for a chemical weapons attack that took place on Aug. 21 and says more than 1,400 civilians died, including at least 400 children. Other casualty estimates are lower, and the Syrian government denies responsibility, contending rebels fighting to topple the government were to blame. The Senate panel’s vote marked the first formal response in Congress, four days after Obama unexpectedly put off an anticipated cruise missile strike against Syria last weekend and instead See SYRIA |12A

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s request for speedy congressional backing of a military strike in Syria advanced Wednesday toward a showdown Senate vote, while the commander in chief left open Obama the possibility he would order retaliation for a deadly chemical weapons attack even if Congress withheld its approval. Legislation backing the use of force against President Bashar Assad’s government cleared the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on a 10-7 vote after it was stiffened at the last minute to include a pledge of support for “decisive changes to the present military balance of power” in Syria’s civil war.

LEHMAN TWP. — You couldn’t have asked for a fairer day. The smell of funnel cake and simmering sausage drifted on a cool breeze through the vendor aisles as food sellers braced for the masses soon to break through the gates. Showing up early to the Luzerne County Fair has its perks. You might spot Jeremy Evans of Bloomsburg, a fifth-

PITTSTON — Two men who Luzerne County prosecutors believe were involved in the shooting of two girls at the Sherman Hills apartment complex last month are jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility on unreAlford lated charges.

a preliminary hearing on charges that he attempted to prevent the capture of a fugitive in June. Alford, 24, of Pittston, is jailed for lack of $100,000 bail, which his attorney, Assistant Public Defender Joseph F. Saporito Jr., called “outrageous” after the hearing before District Judge Andrew Barilla in Pittston. A law enforcement source close to the investigation said Alford is “Flea,” a street name listed in search warrants filed in last month’s shooting in Sherman Hills of 5-year-old Janiya McFarlane and 2-yearold Gabriella Morris.

Judge vows quick Pa.same-sex marriage case ruling
Montgomery County official has been issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples
eastern state that does not allow gay marriage or civil unions. A 1996 state law says a marriage must be between a man and a woman, and it says samesex marriages performed elsewhere cannot be recognized in Pennsylvania. D. Bruce Hanes, the elected register of wills in Montgomery County, defied the ban in late July by issuing licenses to samesex couples, as part of his duties as the orphan’s court clerk. His action followed the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to throw out part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, and a statement by state Attorney General Kathleen Kane that the same-sex marriage ban was unconstitutional. The state Health Department, which is seeking a court order to stop Hanes, said it must ensure that marriage registrations are “uniformly and thoroughly enforced throughout the state.” It said his actions have interfered with the proper performance of its powers, duties and responsibilities. “He is issuing marriage licenses that the law clearly does not allow,” said Greg Dunlap, representing the Health Department. “The Department of Health has an interest in the integrity of the record keeping system.” By the close of business Tuesday, Hanes had issued 164 licenses. Pellegrini said he was not weighing the constitutionality of the same-sex marriage ban. But questions about its constitutionality arose repeatedly, and Pellegrini said he was concerned about the potential effect of his ruling on various levels of government. The lawyers discussed how a sheriff might decide it was unconstitutional to deny gun permits to felons, or a zoning officer might think setback property line rules are an unconstitutional taking of private property. “There’s a lot of constitutional officers in this commonwealth,” Pellegrini said. The judge has to determine if the Health Department has legal standing to pursue what’s known as a mandamus action to force a government official to follow the law. He also has to decide if Hanes qualifies as a judicial officer; if he does, the state Supreme Court may have exclusive jurisdiction. Pellegrini allowed a lawyer for some of the people who have received licenses to participate in the argument. Afterward, one couple said they were not sure what to make of the session. Kevin Taylor, of Havertown, who got a license from Hanes on the second day they were available, said seeking to intervene in the Department of Health case may be just the start of his legal efforts. “We’ll probably continue to sign onto lawsuits until this is resolved,” Taylor said.

HARRISBURG — A judge promised to rule as quickly as possible after hearing arguments Wednesday about whether a suburban Philadelphia court clerk should be forced to stop issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Commonwealth Court Judge Dan Pellegrini said a central issue is “how power is allocated in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania.” “What’s before us today is generally, ‘Who decides?’” Pellegrini told the full courtroom in Harrisburg at the start of oral arguments.

Who’s in driver’s seat? No one?
Pa. congressman takes a ride in a computer-operated car
Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — A Pennsylvania congressman caught a cutting-edge ride to the airport on Wednesday. U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster, a Republican from Altoona, made a 33-mile trip from Cranberry Township to Pittsburgh International Airport at about 11 a.m. in a computer-operated car. The so-called driverless Cadillac SRX was designed by Carnegie Mellon University researchers who have been working on the project since 2008. The car uses inputs from radars, laser rangefinders, and infrared cameras to maneuver in traffic. Shuster is the chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, and he was accompanied by

Barry Schoch, secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. Shuster saw a Carnegie Mellon test vehicle about five years ago, and he said it was crammed so full of equipment that there wasn’t even room for a person inside. Now, the 2011 Cadillac is basically a standard model with all the sensors and electronics discreetly hidden. It didn’t look out of place on the drive to the airport, which began in a suburban area with stop-and-go traffic and then reached speeds of about 65 mph on a major highway. A Carnegie Mellon engineer was in the driver’s seat as a safety precaution. Shuster said he can now imagine a future where such vehicles enter the mainstream, potentially reducing accidents, fatalities and congestion on roads. But there’s also a military angle.

“It’s going to be great for our military to able to send vehicles into combat without people in them,” Shuster said. The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency began holding competitions for driverless vehicles in 2004, and a Carnegie Mellon team won the 2007 race, along with a $2 million prize. Raj Rajkumar, the leader of the Carnegie Mellon project, said the biggest design challenge for driverless vehicles is managing unpredictable events. “It takes a long time to be taught all the things we know” about driving, Rajkumar said of the software. “You can build a system that works correctly today — how do you know it’s going to work well tomorrow? Because it’s a new set of conditions, and you are unable to test all possible conditions. It’s an infinite number.” Rajkumar thinks some driverless cars may reach the marketplace by 2020, though some experts say it will take longer.

No player matched all five numbers in Wednesday’s “Cash 5” jackpot drawing. Today’s jackpot will be worth $325,000. Lottery officials reported 61 players matched four numbers, winning $283.50 each; 2,187 players matched three numbers, winning $13 each; and 28,654 players matched two numbers, winning $1 each.

GM, Nissan and Google are all working on projects, as are other universities. For now, engineers are still gathering data and running tests. A camera on the car recorded Shuster’s trip and streaming video is available online. Carnegie Mellon also let local

law enforcement know about the road tests, and one officer imagined a possible future where DUI’s no longer exist. “It’s very intriguing,” Lt. Kevin Meyer of the Cranberry Township Police Department said as he waited for Shuster to depart.

She was taken to Community Medical center in Scranton for treatment, police said. BUTLER TWP. — A White Haven man faces a slew of charges after he allegedly had illegal and prescription drugs in his system and was involved in a crash, police said. Police allege that Steven K. Koch, 31, of Old Route 940, initially denied driving when police responded to a crash on East Butler Drive on Aug. 7, but later admitted to driving the vehicle.

Secretary of Public Welfare Beverly D. Mackereth says plan to increase access for state residents
to affordable, quality health care coverage, Mackereth said. “To do this, meaningful modernization of the existing Medicaid program must be achieved if we are to create a sustainable option for Pennsylvania taxpayers,” she said. Medicaid is “an entitlement program,” said Mackereth, jointly funded by the federal and state governments that provides health care coverage to low-income children and adults, the elderly and disabled. The Pennsylvania Medicaid Program is known as Medical Assistance because it includes both the federal Medicaid Program as well as state funded only programs. Pennsylvania Medical Assistance comprises 68.6 percent of the total DPW budget and more than 17.4 million claims are processed annually. One in six state residents, or 2.2 million people, are on Medicaid, representing nearly 30 percent of the state’s general fund budget, she said. Pennsylvania’s Medicaid program is unsustainable without changes, Mackereth said. Some proposed reforms include: increasing options for long-term care, rolling out a work-search requirement and trimming the amount of benefits offered. Pennsylvania remains one of the states yet to expand the Medicaid program as part of the federal Affordable Health Care Act. Mackereth said DPW is the largest human services state agency in the United States with a budget of $28 billion — $10.9 billion in state funds, $14.5 billion in federal funding and $2.5 billion from other sources. The department employs nearly 17,000 people, she said. Mike Zimmerman, chief executive officer at Family Service Association of Northeastern Pennsylvania, based in Wilkes-Barre, said he was astonished to learn how big the DPW is and how much of the state’s budget it represents, especially in Medical Assistance. Zimmerman asked the secretary if more money would be available for his agency’s Family Finding program and

Funfest public relations coordinator Julie Ferry poses with Curtis ‘Turk’ Mattern, who will be grand marshal for Sunday’s Funfest Parade.



Curtis “Turk” Mattern — a man who has ridden his motorized wheelchair decorated with mummer string band-style feathers in Hazleton’s Funfest parades for nearly a decade — will lead this year’s parade Sunday as grand marshal. Mattern, of Fritzingertown Senior Living Community in Butler Township, has been a musician since grade school. He joined the Keystone Mummers’ String Band from Pottsville in 1987 and, in later years, when he needed a scooter to get around, band members outfitted it with feathers, and he led the band in performances until it disbanded in 2002. His favorite event was always the Funfest Parade, he said. “His obvious love of the event and his enthusiasm make him a crowd favorite, so the committee was unanimous in their vote to give him this honor,” said Funfest public relations coordinator Julie Ferry. Instead of riding in a special vehicle, the World War II veteran will be in his scooter. Keeping with this year’s Funfest theme, “A Totally 80s Weekend,” he will be dressed as a “senior rocker.” Mattern’s daughter will drive a car behind him with signage identifying him as grand marshal. The parade is set to begin at 2:30 p.m. Sunday near Citizens Bank in West Hazleton and will move east along Route 93, ending at North Pine Street in Hazleton. Funfest runs 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

HAZLETON — Pennsylvania “is closer” to finalizing a plan to reform its Medicaid program, the state secretary of public welfare said Wednesday during an area visit. Beverly D. Mackereth outlined the plan during a presentation to the Hazleton Rotary Club at Best Western Genetti’s Inn. Her office has been working with the federal government to draw up a plan that will be sustainable, Mackereth said “Gov. (Tom) Corbett challenged us to come back to him with a plan to assure increased access for Pennsylvanians,” she said, adding that a final plan might not be ready until 2015. Corbett’s goal is for all Pennsylvanians to have access

A reform plan for the state’s Medicaid program is in the pipeline, but perhaps won’t be ready until 2015, Department of Public Welfare Secretary Beverly Mackereth told attendees at Wednesday’s Hazleton Rotary Club luncheon.

her answer was “no.” The Family Finding program recognizes the role of families and their ability to care for members by using community support resources and service providers, Zimmerman said. The program offers families the opportunity to come together as the best possible people to make decisions on

keeping their children safe, he said. “Our numbers have been growing,” said Zimmerman. “I was hoping to hear that more funding would be available. Family Finding utilizes kinship care instead of foster homes, and we find that approach saves money because families get involved.”

Alleged strip club robber testifies he was framed
William Gronosky says he was at a mall when the Carousel Lounge was robbed in 2012

Holiday crashes kill at least 11


Eleven people were killed and 262 others were injured in the 661 crashes investigated by the Pennsylvania State Police during the four-day Labor Day holiday weekend driving period of Friday through Monday. Those figures do not include crashes investigated by local police. During the holiday, troopers cited 819 individuals for not wearing seat belts, 111 for not securing children in safety seats and 9,149 for speeding. They arrested 351 operators on suspicion of driving under the influence. Of the 661 crashes investigated, 77 of them, including two of the fatal crashes, were alcohol related.

WILKES-BARRE – Two BB guns used in the robbery of a Plymouth Township strip club were his, William Gronosky testified Wednesday. Gloves used in the robbery also belonged to him, but Gronosky said he wasn’t there. He told the court he was shopping at the Wyoming Valley Mall with a friend, identified only as “L Money.” Gronosky, 30, of Nanticoke, testified Wednesday at his jury trial on charges that he and another man robbed the owner of the Carousel Lounge along Route 11 at gunpoint on March 15, 2012 and got away with $3,500. Attorneys will present their closing arguments today. But, Gronosky said, the woman who claims she was driving the getaway car is wrong. Courtney Sadusky is a “six-bag-a-day” heroin user who, at one time, had a relationship with him, Gronosky said. That, he said, is why Sadusky, 24, fabricated the story of Gronosky and Kevin Williams robbing the club. Sadusky framed him, he said, and stole the BB guns and a pair of gloves

from his home to do so. “I didn’t do this,” Gronosky said. He admitted he was at the Carousel Lounge the day of the robbery, but not until much later in the day Gronosky when he went there to purchase drugs. He said he visited the strip club three to four times a week and even played pool with owner Julius Greenberg. That’s how, Gronosky said, he knows Greenberg and how he is familiar with the club — not because he was there to rob the club. Gronosky said it’s simply a coincidence that he was picked up by police near Berwick in a gas station bathroom after the robbery with Williams. They were running, Gronosky admitted, but only because they were scared – not because they committed any crimes. Sadusky told a different story early Wednesday, saying she drove Gronosky and Williams to the Carousel Lounge around 9 a.m. on March 15, 2012. Gronosky and Williams had ski masks on, Sadusky testified, and she said they wore gloves and were armed with guns. About 15 minutes later, Gronosky

allegedly told Sadusky that they pushed the owner of the strip club to the floor and took about $3,500. Sadusky testified she then took the two men to her parents’ home in Bear Creek, where they counted the money. She said the two men then asked her to drive them to the Wyoming Valley Mall in Wilkes-Barre Township, where she later picked them up with a number of shopping bags. Sadusky pleaded guilty Wednesday morning to a criminal conspiracy charge relating to the robbery before also testifying in an unrelated criminal conspiracy charge in a burglary at a Laflin home she participated in with Gronosky. County Judge Michael Vough said Sadusky will be sentenced on Nov. 7. Carousel owner, Julius Greenberg, was the first witness to testify Wednesday. The club owner said the door of his business was unlocked because he had been in and out to his car that morning, and that two men entered his office around 9 a.m., pushed him down and took money and items in Greenberg’s pockets before fleeing. Williams was convicted of related charges in May and sentenced in July to 10 to 20 years in prison.

HANOVER TWP. — Wearing a T-shirt that read “Got Blood,” 57-year-old Wayne Harding was arraigned late Tuesday night on charges he threatened to kill Freeland police officers and officials and burn the borough to the ground. Harding’s threat was taken seriously; borough officials postponed their monthly council meeting. Mayor Tami Martin and council President Robert Quinn did not return messages for comment Wednesday. Harding was arraigned by District Judge Joseph Halesey Harding in Hanover Township on a single count of terroristic threats. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $25,000 bail. Quinn contacted Freeland police at about noon Tuesday, alerting them to the alleged verbal threat by Harding. According to the criminal complaint: Quinn told police Harding approached a borough maintenance employee, who is not named, on Monday in the Freeland Park on Front Street. Harding allegedly told the employee, “I’m going to burn the town of Freeland to the ground, then I’m going to kill the code officer and his family, and then I’m going to kill the police.” Harding told the employee the reason he was going to kill Code Enforcement Officer Brian Maso and police officers was because of his recent arrest for allegedly threatening Maso. Maso had cited Harding with a code violation in recent days. Court records show police charged Harding on Aug. 21 with terroristic threats and two counts of disorderly conduct. Those charges were withdrawn, permitting Harding to be released from the county prison, where he had been jailed for lack of $5,000 bail. Police then cited Harding with a summary charge of disorderly conduct for alleged threats toward Maso. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on Sept. 11.

Shickshinny landlords required to keep records
Property owners to provide contact info to borough, maintain list of tenants
Times Leader Correspondent


SHICKSHINNY — Borough council enacted Tuesday an ordinance establishing a landlord registration system that requires property owners to maintain a record of rentals and tenants occupying their properties. The ordinance stems from borough officials experiencing difficulty in identifying landlords, some of whom fail to abide by

borough codes and, according to language authored by solicitor John Pike, promote the safety, welfare and health of borough residents. In addition, council at the recommendation of Mayor Beverly Moore adopted a new set of rules regarding the operation of the public playground at Oak and North Canal streets. Moore received approval for the park to be open only from dawn to dusk. Police will disperse people who violate the rules, she said.

The decision stems, council was told, from incidents of vandalism and fights occurring at the park after dark. Under the landlord ordinance, property owners will be required to provide to the borough their name, address and telephone number, number of occupants and the names of current tenants. As a prerequisite to entering into a rental agreement, the ordinance stipulates that a license must be obtained for each rental unit at a cost of $25 per unit.

In addition, information must be updated and presented to the codes enforcement officer within 10 days of any change in residents or residency. Council also conducted an executive session at the conclusion of the regular meeting, during which time shouting could be heard behind closed doors. Council members, however, declined to discuss the nature of the non-public meeting. Soon after council went

back into public session, Councilman Micheal Steeber made a motion to accept a Municipal Drug Task Force agreement that had been submitted by state Attorney General Kathleen Kane. The agreement provides for the coordination of narcotics investigations, enforcement and prosecution of those people engaged in illegal drug activities as well as for reimbursement by the Attorney General’s Office for police activities approved in advance by state officials.

Other agenda items approved by council included: • Acceptance of a donation from JHA Engineering of Tunkhannock for the purchase of a community bulletin board. • The adoption of a brake retarder ordinance; warning signs will be posted at the east and west entrances into the community. • The creation of a parking permit program for Bartoli Avenue, West Vine Street and North Susquehanna Avenue. • The approval of Reilly

& Associates of WilkesBarre and Ashburn Advisors of Wilkes-Barre to provide engineering and administrative expertise for a proposed $1.7 million block grant program. • The hiring of Jim Shepherd in the street department and Jane Wido as cleaning person for the borough building. • The tabling of the payment of invoices for ammunition by the police department after Steeber asked for more information on the type and caliber of ammunition.

Judge rebuffs challenge to $1.2B PPL power line

Government agencies acted properly in approving a high-voltage power line through the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, a federal judge has found, rejecting a challenge by environmentalists opposed to the project. “This ruling affirms the

position of the companies and the National Park Service that these permits were issued properly and after thorough study,” said Stephanie Raymond, PPL vice president of transmission and substations. “We will move forward with construction as planned.” The $1.2 billion Susquehanna-Roseland line, a partnership between PPL and New Jersey-based PSE&G, is needed to cope with increasing demand on the region’s electric grid, according to the utility companies, who jointly heralded Friday’s decision by Judge Richard Roberts as “the right decision for millions of people throughout the mid-Atlantic region who will have more reliable electric service because of this project.” Roberts’ decision, filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., rejected a lawsuit filed by environmental advocacy groups seeking to overturn last year’s approval of the 500-kilovolt transmission line that will stretch 145 miles between PPL’s Susquehanna nuclear power plant in Salem Township and the Roseland

substation near Newark, N.J. The National Parks Conservation Association, together with nine other organizations, filed suit against then-Interior Secretary Kenneth Salzar in October, claiming officials did not perform an adequate review of potential environmental impacts, and that they broke other laws during the permitting process. “The plaintiffs have not shown that NPS’ decision was arbitrary and capricious,” the judge wrote, adding the decision was “rationally based on the administrative record.” The line already is under construction elsewhere in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. A statement released by PSE&G earlier in August indicated that construction at the Water Gap was to begin Tuesday with access road construction. Construction in the four miles of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area will take about six months to complete, the utility said. The line is expected to be in service by June 2015.

HARRISBURG — The Right-To-Know officer for the state’s Public Utility Commission has responded to a Times Leader request to make an anonymous letter at the heart of an investigation into PPL public. The response letter, signed by PUC Right To Know Officer Rosemary Chiavetta, said “A legal review is necessary to determine whether the record is a record subject to access under this act. A response is expected to be provided to you on or before October 8, 2013.” The Times Leader filed a Right-To-Know request last week after a proposed settlement agreement between PPL Corp., an electric utility company based in Allentown that serves more than two dozen counties in eastern and central Pennsylvania, and the PUC was made public. The region’s largest electric utility is accused of violating its internal guidelines and state law as part of its response to a late-October 2011 snowstorm that left 388,318 of PPL’s 1.4 million customers, including many in Luzerne County, without power. PPL Corp. faces a $60,000 fine from the PUC, which has asked for public comment on the matter before approving the settlement, though all details of the matter are not being given to the public. According to a summary of the incident offered by the PUC: On April 26, 2012, after receiving an anonymous letter from a PPL employee, the PUC’s independent Bureau of Investigation and Enforcement, or I&E, began an informal investigation into PPL’s alleged improper transfer of a restoration crew in the wake of the Oct. 29, 2011, snowstorm. The allegation was that the restoration crew was transferred from a higher priority job in order to restore service to a lower priority job. The bureau alleged this was a violation of PUC regulations, the Public Utility Code and the company’s restoration procedures. That anonymous letter was not included in the public file, which led to the Times Leader filing. Melissa Melewsky, a media law counsel with the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association, said, “The letter is presumptively public pursuant to the Right to Know Law, and it is the PUC’s burden to show if the record is exempt from public access if they deny your request.”

Ariel Castro, 53, pronounced dead at hospital
AP Legal Affairs Writer

Women’s captor hangs self
street from the former school bus driver. “We’re sad to hear that he’s dead, but at the same time, we’re happy he’s gone, and now we know he can’t ask for an appeal or try for one if he’s acting like he’s crazy.” Through a spokeswoman, his three victims declined to comment. Castro was sentenced Aug. 1 to life in prison plus 1,000 years after pleading guilty to 937 counts, including kidnapping and rape, in a deal to avoid the death penalty. At his sentencing, he told the judge: “I’m not a monster. I’m sick.” A scornful Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty said: “This man couldn’t take, for even a month, a small portion of what he had dished out for more than a decade.” Castro had been in a cell by himself in protective custody because of his notoriety, meaning he was checked every 30 minutes, but was not on a suicide watch, which entails constant supervision, Smith said. She said Castro used a bedsheet. An autopsy showed the death was suicide by hanging, said Dr. Jan Gorniak, Franklin County coroner. The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio asked the prison system to conduct a full investigation. Castro’s captives — Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight — disappeared separately between 2002 and 2004, when they were 14, 16 and 20 years old. They were rescued from Castro’s run-down house in a tough Cleveland neighborhood

Here they are, back in Atlantic City Miss America contestants wait to be introduced after arriving in Atlantic City, N.J., on Tuesday. The Miss America pageant is back in the city where it began, six years after spurning the city for Las Vegas. The pageant held a welcoming ceremony Tuesday for the 53 contestants — one from each state plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The competition will begin next week.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Cleveland man serving a life sentence for holding three women captive in his home for a decade hanged himself in his prison cell with a bedsheet, officials said Wednesday in another shocking twist in the case that transfixed and appalled the city. Ariel Castro, 53, was found hanging Tuesday night at the state prison in Orient, said JoEllen Smith, a spokeswoman for the corrections system. Prison medical staff performed CPR before Castro was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. “He took the coward’s way out,” said Elsie Cintron, a neighbor who lived up the

Ariel Castro in the courtroom during the sentencing phase of his trial in Cleveland. Castro, who held three women captive for a decade, committed suicide Tuesday.

on May 6 when Berry broke out a screen door and yelled to neighbors. Elation over the women’s rescue turned to shock as details emerged about their captivity. Castro fathered a child with Berry while she was being held. The girl was 6 when she was freed.

Investigators also disclosed that the women were bound with chains, repeatedly raped and deprived of food and bathroom facilities. Knight told authorities that Castro impregnated her repeatedly and made her miscarry by starving her and punching her in the belly. Berry was forced to give birth in a plastic kiddie pool. On Castro’s old street Wednesday, freshly planted landscaping was in bloom on the site where his house stood before it was demolished by the city a month ago. Satellite TV trucks returned to record the scene. Castro’s suicide “does give a little bit of closure to the families and people that got affected by what he did,” resident Jessica Burchett said, “but at the same time he deserved to be in there for his life because of what he did to those girls.”


1 dead, 3 hurt in school stabbing

A fight inside a Houston-area high school escalated into a series of stabbings on Wednesday that killed a 17-year-old student and wounded several others, sheriff’s officials said. Three students described as “persons of interest” were taken into custody after the fight in the cafeteria at Spring High School, about 20 miles north of Houston. Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia said authorities were not searching for any other suspects and that everyone involved in the fight were students from the school district. Two victims were hospitalized with minor injuries. A third, identified only as a 16-year-old, was in surgery.

A secret meeting between a representative of the Wyoming chapter of the NAACP and a Ku Klux Klan organizer ended with the Klan organizer paying $50 to join the civil rights organization, participants said. Saturday’s meeting between Jimmy Simmons, president of the Casper NAACP, and John Abarr, a KKK organizer from Great Falls, Mont., took place at a hotel in Casper, Wyo., under tight security, the Casper Star-Tribune reported. The Southern Poverty Law Center and the United Klans of America said Tuesday that the meeting was a first. Abarr said on Tuesday he filled out an NAACP membership form so he could get the group’s newsletters and some insight into its views. He said he paid a $30 fee to join, plus a $20 donation.

Israel: Keep settlements intact
Proposal floated as part of peace talks, says official, but deemed unacceptable by Palestinians
The Associated Press

Police say they’re concerned there may be a bad batch of the drug known as Molly being sold in the Northeast after multiple overdoses in Massachusetts and New York and likely at least three deaths. Three people overdosed on Molly, a pure form of ecstasy, last week at the House of Blues club. One of them was a college student from New Hampshire who died. Over the weekend, there were two non-fatal Molly overdoses at a concert in Boston. And in New York City, two people died and four others were hospitalized during a dance music festival. New York officials said the deaths there appeared to be linked to Molly, also known as MDMA.

Police concerned over ‘Molly’ drug


RAMALLAH, West Bank — Israel has proposed leaving intact dozens of Jewish settlements and military bases in the West Bank as part of a package to establish a Palestinian state in provisional borders, a Palestinian official told The Associated Press on Wednesday, in the first detailed glimpse at recently relaunched peace talks. The official said the proposal is unacceptable to the Palestinians, underscoring the tough road ahead as the sides try to reach an agreement ending decades of conflict. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because Israel and the Palestinians have pledged to U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry not to discuss the content of their talks with the media — a pledge that has largely held up until now.

For their future state, the Palestinians seek the West Bank, east Jerusalem and Gaza Strip, territories captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war. With Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu opposed to a return to the pre-1967 lines, the idea of a Palestinian state in temporary borders has gained appeal with the Israelis. Such a deal could give the Palestinians independence, while leaving the thorniest issues, such as the fate of Jerusalem and the status of millions of Palestinian refugees and their descendants, to later negotiations. The Palestinians reject any notion of a provisional agreement, fearing that a temporary arrangement that falls short of their dreams will become permanent. Talks resumed in late July after a nearly five-year break stemming largely from Israeli settlement construction. The Palestinians have objected to Israeli

construction in the West Bank and east Jerusalem. The Palestinians say these settlements, now home to more than 500,000 Israelis, make it increasingly difficult to partition the land between two people. After months of U.S. mediation, the Palestinians agreed to resume talks. Although Israel did not pledge to freeze settlement construction, U.S. officials have said they expect both sides to avoid provocative moves. Negotiators have been quietly meeting once or twice a week for the past month or so. The Palestinian official said formal talks on borders have not yet started, and that negotiations have focused on security matters. He said the Israelis want to retain control of the West Bank’s border with Jordan, keep early-warning stations on hilltops and retain military bases near the Jordanian border.

How ‘affordable’ is health care law?

The chairman of the Transportation Committee in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives is in critical condition after complications arose after a leg operation, a caucus spokesman said Wednesday. The medical condition of Rep. Dick Hess, R-Bedford, took a downturn over the weekend, said House Republican spokesman Steve Miskin. Miskin said Hess, 74, was recovering from a leg operation he had about two weeks ago when the medical issues arose. Miskin said family members provided the update to the legislative staff in Hess’ district office.

WASHINGTON — The No. 1 question about President Barack Obama’s health care law is whether consumers will be able to afford the coverage. Now the answer is coming in. The biggest study yet of premiums posted by states finds that the sticker price for a 21-year-old buying a mid-range policy will average about $270 a month. That’s before government tax credits that act like a discount for most people, bringing down the cost based on their income. List-price premiums for a 40-year-old buying a midrange plan will average close to $330, the study by Avalere Health found. For a 60-yearold, they were nearly double

that at $615 a month. Starting Oct. 1, people who don’t have health care coverage on their job can go to new online insurance markets in their states to shop for a private plan and find out if they qualify for a tax credit. Come Jan. 1, virtually all Americans will be required to have coverage, or face fines. At the same time, insurance companies will no longer be able to turn away people in poor health. The study points to the emergence of a competitive market, said lead author Caroline Pearson, a vice president of the private data analysis firm. But it’s a market with big price differences among age groups, states and even within states. A copy was provided to The Associated Press. The bottom line is mixed: Many consumers will like

their new options, particularly if they qualify for a tax credit. But others might have to stretch to afford coverage. “We are seeing competitive offerings in every market if you buy toward the low end of what’s available,” said

Pearson, a vice president of Avalere. However, for uninsured people who are paying nothing today “this is still a big cost that they’re expected to fit into their budgets,” Pearson added.

PHILADELPHIA — State officials can pursue their bid to steer Penn State’s $60 million fine over the Jerry Sandusky scandal to advocacy efforts in Pennsylvania, a state court has ruled in a setback for the NCAA. The NCAA calls the state effort a violation of the school’s 2012 consent decree, and therefore a breach of federal contract law. However, the Commonwealth Court judges rejected the NCAA’s motion to dismiss the case. The court ruled that a February state law known as the Endowment Act, which creates a state trust fund to hold the money, did not interfere with Penn State’s earlier settlement with the NCAA. “The consent decree is silent as to who is to control or administer the endowment and is also silent on geographic limitations on the use of the funds,” Judge Anne E. Covey wrote for the panel, which split 6-1 on the issue. The July 2012 settlement orders that the money be spent on child sexual-abuse programs, and the NCAA wants the money available for programs nationwide. State Sen. Jake Corman, R-Centre County, and Treasurer Rob McCord filed suit to ensure the money is spent within the state. “This decision brings us one major step closer to resolving the matter and having worthy child protection and sexual abuse advocacy programs in Pennsylvania begin receiving the funds,” Corman said Wednesday in a statement. Donald Remy, the NCAA’s chief legal officer, said the case presents important issues of state versus federal law. “We are reviewing the court’s opinion in detail and will decide next steps after we have had an opportunity to consider all of the options available,” Remy said. Penn State agreed to the NCAA penalties a year ago, along with a temporary loss of football scholarships and a fouryear ban on post-season play. The first of five $12 million payments has been set aside but, amid the litigation, not paid out to anyone. Penn State has remained on the sidelines of the dispute and previously asked the two sides to try to negotiate a resolution. The dissenting judge Wednesday, President Judge Dan Pelligrini, agreed with the NCAA that the suit should not move forward unless the university signs on as a plaintiff.

WEST PITTSTON — A contractor formerly from Plains Township was charged by WilkesBarre police detectives on Wednesday with failing to begin renovations to a house after he cashed a check from the homeowner. Detectives allege George Poplawski, 41, of Country Side Road, Honesdale, cashed a $900 check given to him by Patricia Koschack, of East Sidney Street, last Oct. 18 for renovations to her house. The $900 down payment was more than

half of the $1,600 home improvement contract, which called for renovations to sidewalks, drain tile and stone, the shoring up of floors and removal all garbage and debris, according to the criminal complaint. The complaint alleges Poplawski “Has yet to do any work as he agreed to in the contract” as of Tuesday. Poplawski was arraigned by District Judge Joseph Carmody in West Pittston on a charge of receives advance payment for services and fails to perform. He was released without bail. Poplawski was in Carmody’s courtroom on

Wednesday for a preliminary hearing on related charges. Exeter police allege Poplawski, formerly of West Carey Street, Plains, was hired by Matt Stuka to turn a single-family house into a rental unit with two apartments on Harland Street in February 2012. Poplawski began renovations but allegedly used below-grade materials, installed wrong-sized pipe fittings and electrical panel boxes and junction boxes, and failed to replace the front porch of Stuka’s property. Stuka previously said he learned he was billed by Poplawski for new materials when existing

and used windows, pipes and electrical wires from other jobs were used. Stuka, who paid Poplawski nearly $73,000, hired two other contractors to replace improperly installed drywall and the electrical system. Poplawski waived his right to a preliminary hearing sending charges of theft and deceptive business practices to Luzerne County Court. He remains free on $25,000 bail on the charges filed by Exeter police. A preliminary hearing on the charges filed by WilkesBarre police is scheduled on Sept. 11 before District Judge Martin Kane in Wilkes-Barre.

WILKES-BARRE — The case of a Hazleton man scheduled to stand trial this week on charges he pistolwhipped one man and held others against their will in 2012 has been continued to November. Reginald McCoy, 42, of Peace Street, is scheduled to stand trial on 10 related charges on Nov. 12, county Judge David Lupas said. McCoy is represented by attorney Charles Ross. Assistant District Attorney Molly Hanlon Mirabito is prosecuting the case. McCoy previously had been jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility but was released in May on $25,000 unsecured bail that carries a number of conditions, including a curfew. He also is required to undergo counseling and have no contact with victims involved in the case. According to the criminal complaint filed by Hazleton police, they were called on Nov. 25 to Monges Street for the report of a man who was assaulting people with a gun. Police were told one man, Gary Stemko, had been pistol-whipped and that several other people were being held against their will in a nearby house. WILKES-BARRE — An attorney for the city of Wilkes-Barre and Mayor Tom Leighton filed court papers Wednesday seeking to have a developer’s $1.5 million lawsuit against them dismissed. Attorney John Dean filed court papers Wednesday requesting that a lawsuit filed in May by South Main Plaza, L.P., be tossed out and a judgment be made in favor of the city and the mayor. The suit seeks compensation for loss of income and other damages and alleges the developer has already spent $1.5 million in land purchase and other related costs. According to the suit, in July 2001, South Main Plaza and the city entered into an agreement of sale. The developer bought a parcel of land adjacent to the plaza for $150,000. The vacant parcel was to be used for construction of a multiunit shopping center, and the agreement called for the city to assist in obtaining “permanent, irrevocable and exclusive access” to and from South Pennsylvania Avenue to the vacant lot, according to the lawsuit. “The city has repeatedly failed to make the best effort … let alone its required ‘best effort’ — to acquire access to Pennsylvania Boulevard,” the suit states. “As the city is aware, the lack of this access, as well as the city’s failure to fulfill its other obligations under the (agreement) has prevented South Main Plaza from beginning construction on the project.” In Dean’s filing, he says there was no breach of contract and that the city made every effort possible to help the developer. Dean filed a counterclaim alleging, among other counts, breach of contract and fraud.

bernard m. Prevuznak
Sept. 4, 2013
Bernard M. Prevuznak, 82, of the Parsons section of Wilkes Barre, passed at away his home (his favorite place to be), surrounded by his loving family and close friends. He left us, his loving family, to finally embrace his Lord and God on Sept 4, 2013. He was born and raised in the North End of Wilkes-Barre and was the proud son of Slovak coal miners, the late Stephen and Agnes Prevuznak. He attended Sacred Heart Elementary School, St. Nick’s High School and went on to achieve a bachelor of arts in education from King’s College. He proudly entered the military at age 17 and began a career that lasted five years, 11 months and 23 days … (as he told us often). He was a disabled American veteran who also achieved the Soldier of the Year award during his time in the service of his country. His professional career was spent educating and helping God’s underprivileged and special-needs children. He spent years working at the Kis-lyn Juvenile Center and the White Haven Forestry Center. His public school career began at GAR Memorial High School, where he served as a special-education teacher. He then went on to teach at both James M. Coughlin High School and Plains Memorial Junior High School. He retired from the Wilkes-Barre Area School District after 35 years of service in 1992. He accommodated the needs of many students during his teaching tenure and asked for little in return, with his only reward being the sure pleasure of helping a special-needs child. He married his dearly beloved wife and best friend, Lorraine L. Lavix, on Sept. 7, 1957, and would have celebrated 56 years of blissful married life together this Saturday. “Pop,” “The Legend” and “The Professor” had a lifelong love of reading and learning, and that he tried to instill in his students. His favorite reads were the Holy Bible, the writings of St. Thomas Aquinas and whatever newspapers he could get his hands on. He loved playing and watching the lottery and knew every number for the last 40 years. He was an avid sports fan (he loved those Philadelphia Phillies) and loved watching athletic competitions on television, along with “Jeopardy” and “Wheel of Fortune.” He smiled often and never gave up on people or children, specifically those with special needs. His positive attitude even during the course of his illness never wavered. He never worried about much in this life and

WASHINGTON — A later start to the school day could help teenagers get the most from their classroom time and local districts should consider delaying the first bell, Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Wednesday. School districts would still be free to set their own start times, Duncan insisted in a broadcast interview, but he pointed to research that backs up his comments that rested students are ready students. “There’s lots of research and common sense that lots of teens struggle to get up

… to get on the bus,” said Duncan, the former chief of Chicago Public Schools. The main reason? “Teen brains have a different biology,” said Kyla Wahlstrom, director at the University of Minnesota’s Center for Applied Research and Education Improvement. Wahlstrom has studied teenagers’ sleep cycles, brains and learning. She has concluded that schools that want ready students must have students arrive rested. Absenteeism, tardiness, depression, obesity, dropout rates and suto accidents all decline when students head to school after a good night of sleep.

Going to a fair? Try going local
TAKE A MOMENT to consider attending the region’s other fair … the one for the county in which this newspaper is based. It might seem a bit odd for the Luzerne County Fair to take a backseat among its own residents, but around here if you say “fair,” most minds bolt to the mammoth and popular Bloomsburg Fair. Considering the number of vendors, caliber of entertainment and volume of contests, that is frankly, fair (sorry). Only a fool would try to compare. The event in Columbia County’s most famous “burg” is more than three times the age of our own (158th for them, 51st for Luzerne County). But the Bloomsburg behemoth is still two weekends away. In the meantime, take note of our own more modest, yet still worth visiting, county fair. It opened yesterday and runs through Sunday. There are advantages to the smaller scale. While basic entry at Bloomsburg is still an affordable $7, that doesn’t include parking, rides or entertainment. In contrast, $8 gives you parking, rides and entertainment at the county fair. It’s also easier to navigate. This and the fairs of other nearby counties offer more intimate, more leisurely experiences than the Bloomsburg extravaganza, which bills itself as the “largest Ag(ricultural) fair in Pa., one of the largest in the state.” The Bloomsburg fair might be a tradition, but the Luzerne County Fair harkens back to a tradition worth keeping: The gathering of local residents to seek bragging rights in animal husbandry, horticulture and other old-school skills, and most of all to just enjoy yourself and re-establish a sense of community. So, sure, if you already bought your Bloomsburg ticket or planned your trip west, keep the date and enjoy. But why not spend some time at the fairgrounds in Lehman Township, off state Route 118 just off state Route 415 north of Dallas? Consider it a warm-up for the main event. Consider it a small-scale replacement if you just can’t get to the Bloomsburg shindig, don’t like the huge crowds, have kids too small for such a big deal, or prefer gentler entertainment that doesn’t require miles of walking just to cover the basics. Or consider it a blast from the past, a bit of history tweaked to the present, and a chance to relax with neighbors. It’s all good. Which when you think of it, could be any county fair’s motto.


A better way to close state prisons
When the state Department of Corrections moved to close state prisons in Greensburg and Cresson without any warning to its corrections officers, their families or those communities, it set a precedent that should concern communities that host state prisons across the state. To understand the concern requires context. On the evening of Jan. 8, state legislators were notified of a formal announcement of the closings to come the following day. Several media outlets reported the closings that night. How did many of the officers in those prisons learn of the closings? From inmates. That’s right: Corrections officers learned the news of the closings after being told by inmates at Greensburg and Cresson who saw the media reports on television. The news spread quickly as you could imagine. On Jan. 9, just one hour before the state made its official announcement, the state finally saw fit to notify the Pennsylvania State Corrections Officers Association, which represents 600 employees in both prisons. During testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Corrections officials acknowledged that the department started internal discussions on closing facilities as early as last June. Yet, they kept it to themselves until January. Had the department chosen to work with us, we could have helped to ease the impact on our members. Don’t we owe the people who handle our state’s most violent criminals at least that much? Our members are in danger everyday. Some have been brutally beaten; others are forced to undergo constant testing for disease after inmates have gassed them. For those unaware, gassing is when an inmate throws a bag of urine or feces at an officer or is spat upon. Some inmates suffer from various diseases, including HIV. Officers will tell you they’d rather be beaten than gassed because physical injuries can heal. We realize that occasionally life blindsides us by unexpected events, but this did not need to be such a blindsided event. In fact, the department actually allowed one of our members to transfer into the Cresson facility in December and never said a word. As bad as the harm is to those in Greensburg and Cresson, there is an additional fear and concern by other officers and their families. They all want to know what facility is next because, under the current system, no one will know until it’s too late. The state is currently building a new prison in Graterford. The plan is to replace the facility that currently exists there, but will the department use this new jail as an opportunity to also close others without any warning? An excellent model for public inclusion in the closure process was readily available, which would’ve provided opportunities for all stakeholders to provide input. In 2005, the federal government implemented the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission to provide an open process to carefully and thoughtfully evaluate the closing of military bases. The commission recognized that while the military value of a base was of compelling importance, so too was the impact upon their host communities and personnel. The mission statement for the commission is as follows: “While giving priority to the criteria of military value, the commission will also take into account the human impact of the base closures and will consider the possible economic, environmental, and other effects on the surrounding communities.” The commission held community meetings in the various locations that had been identified for possible base closure. They solicited comments and suggestions from community leaders, area businesses and employees. When the base closures were announced, the communities and employees that were impacted at least had fair warning and were given an opportunity to present their case for keeping their base open. As important, community leaders were able to plan for the worst-case scenario. Was it too much to ask that our state government demonstrate the same compassion and concern for its employees and the impacted communities? Seldom is the best decision made in a vacuum.

Wrist slap for star is NCAA hypocrisy
TEXAS A&M STAR quarterback Johnny Manziel’s suspension for the first half of the Aggies’ opener Saturday against Rice was a sickening display of the contemptible hypocrisy of the NCAA and college football’s major powers. Technically, A&M declared “Johnny Football” ineligible and the NCAA reinstated him after the first half, according to The Associated Press. Manziel, who last season became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy, drew this wrist slap for an “inadvertent” violation of NCAA rules by signing autographs — despite A&M and the NCAA saying “there is no evidence Manziel received money in exchange … .” That finding is contrary to ESPN reports that cited unidentified sources who claim Manziel was paid thousands of dollars to sign thousands of autographs for memorabilia brokers

Only a few days ago a 15-year-old girl was shot down in Chicago, the latest in a record of deaths from illegal gunfire. I have read about these atrocities but nowhere in these reports have I read anything about the “coalition to stop gun violence” anywhere in these stories. It would seem to me they are being a bit lax in their duties. This fine organization is actually a rebirth of the old Brady gun grabbers. Their sole purpose seemingly is to propagate the idea that a proliferation of guns is evil and bad for your health. I would suggest this group begin to really stop gun violence and get moving to the areas where they can do the most good such as Chicago and their hometown of Washington, D.C. I’ll be looking for them in the news. Unfortunately, I don’t really expect these gun grabbers to be there.

in Texas, Florida and Connecticut the day before his team started preseason practice. But even if Manziel did sell thousands of his autographs for thousands of dollars, his suspension would be no less wrong. Running what amounts to a minorleague feeder system for the NFL’s money machine, Texas A&M, its fellow collegiate gridiron powers and the NCAA make billions of dollars off their players. Yes, these players have scholarships. But they are denied not only a piece of college football’s financial windfall, but also opportunities to capitalize on their own achievements for their own benefit — which they should have the right to do, like anyone else. If that’s not contemptibly hypocritical, what is?
Pittsburgh Tribune Review

The Coalition To Stop Gun Violence is a fine-sounding name. We do need a stop to gun violence. I’m all for that. Unfortunately this organization is looking in all the wrong places. The organization, based in Washington, D.C., has placed a billboard near Gilberton, asking the council there to fire police chief Mark Kessler. They say he shouldn’t have been seen on YouTube firing automatic weapons and using foul language. They say he was acting improperly. Wow, I’m shaking in my boots at all this gun violence. He was acting as a private citizen — not in any way pertaining to his capacity as a law officer. He wears no law officer clothing, nor does he speak of law enforcement. While they are busy criticizing a small-town police chief in our neck of the woods, I’d like to know the latest critique they have written against

www.timesleader.com THE TIMES LEADER

From page 1A The union proposal has no deferral: A newcomer with a bachelor’s degree would see increases from 0.48 percent to 3.52 percent, while an eight-year master’s degree teacher would see increases from 3.86 percent to 6.05 percent. The analysis suggests that under the board’s proposal the master’s degree teacher would see pay rise by a total of 30.7 percent over the six-year contract, compared to 9.7 percent for the bachelor’s degree. The changes would be 33.8 percent and 12.4 percent respectively under the union proposal. The analysis was done solely to give a relative idea of the impact of each offer on teachers with different education levels and experience. There are substantial caveats: • The analysis did not consider any raises for increased education — the expired contract being replaced provided raises for every six college credits. These are known as “column” raises. • The analysis couldn’t look at actual dollar figures in the proposals. Along with column raises, the expired contract provided annual raises for 15 years, known as “step” raises. The percentage of raises varies depending on education level, or column. When the two sides negotiate, they don’t negotiate every step and column salary. They negotiate overall annual increases, leaving it up to the union to dispense the money in the step/column matrix, district lead negotiator attorney John Dean said. • For simplicity, the analysis made an assumption that rarely holds true: A teacher would not earn any college credits for the duration of the contract. To maintain their state licenses, teachers — particularly new ones — must complete a minimum of “continuing education” credits within several years. Salary matrix All that said, The Times Leader used the step/column salary matrix from the last contract, which expired in August 2010, to calculate potential annual increases for hypothetical teachers at three different levels in the 2009-10 school year: A firstyear teacher with a bachelor’s degree, an eighth-year teacher with a master’s degree, and a teacher who has reached the top of the pay scale, working at least 16 years and earning at least a master’s degree plus 60 credits. Details of the two offers were provided by Dean. Based on the 2009-10 salary matrix from the old contract, the three teachers would have been paid $32,206, $43,370 and $79,792 that year. In the latest offers from both side, the salaries for 2010-11 should be the same because teacher received their step increases that year: $32,360, $45,044 and $80,042 — though the increase for the top teacher was a $250 sum, not an actual “step” raise. That translates into raises of 0.48 percent, 3.86 percent and 0.31 percent. Pay for 2011-12 is where the debate begins. The board initially insisted on a “true pay freeze,” meaning teachers would get no step increase at all, and that step increases would resume the following year. But that proposal was dropped in the Aug. 26 negotiations and the board proposed a raise deferral, granting the step increase on paper but not actually increasing pay. Teachers would then see a bigger increase, for two steps, in 2012-13. Teachers at the top of the scale would get a $250 raise that year. Which means salaries would remain flat for one year for the three hypothetical teachers, but would climb the following year to $33,072, $49,020 and $80,292, or 2.19 percent, 8.64 percent and 0.31 percent, making the difference for a master’s degree teacher particularly pronounced. Latest proposal The union’s latest proposal asked for the existing step increases in 2011-12 plus a $500 increase for top-of-scale teachers, and a step increase in 2012-13 plus an additional 0.25 percent. Rather than remaining flat, 201112 salaries would rise to $32,638, $46,927 and $80,542. In 201213 they would climb again to $33,154, $49,135 and $80,743. So the 2012-13 increases would be lower than under the board’s proposal — 1.6 percent, 4.7 percent and 0.25 percent, but the teachers would have seen raises of 0.86 percent, 4.2 percent an 0.6 percent the prior year, rather than no raise. The plans diverge more sharply in the remaining three years. The board proposed existing step raises for 2013-14 and 2014-15, with teachers already at the top of the scale getting $250 raises each year. In the final year of the contract, the board offered its first and only increase beyond existing step payment, bumping salary an additional 0.25 percent for those still on the steps and for those at the top of the scale. The union sought step payments plus another 0.5 percent in 2013-14, and an additional 1 percent in each of the final two years. Those at the top of the scale would see their pay increase by those percentages. Effect on salaries The upshot for the hypothetical teachers? Under the board’s proposal, the bachelor’s degree newbie would have seen his or her salary rise from $32,360 in 200910 to $35,323 in 2015-16 for an increase of $3,117, while under the union proposal it would have hit $36,195 for a total increase of $3,989. The two contracts differ for this teacher by $872 over the six years. For the master’s degree teacher with eight years at the start of the contract, salary would have risen from $43,370 to $56,688 under the board plan and to $58,047 under the union plan, giving total increases of $13,318 and $14,677 respectively, making a $1,360 difference between proposals. For the top-of-scale teacher, salary would have risen from $79,792 to $80,994 under the board’s plan and to $82,778 under the union plan, for respective total increases of $1,202 and $2,986, making a six-year difference of $1,784 between the proposals. Union leaders contend the problem is that the board’s offer just extends the old contract without any real raises. During Tuesday’s opening picket march, Union President Melissa Dolman said a settlement is simple: “The board has to offer percentage raises within the steps.” Dean counters that the steps are, by definition, already raises, that the district has only enough money in reserve to pay what it has offered, and that any other increases would require cutbacks or a tax hikes. But the analysis suggests a third dynamic often acknowledged privately but rarely discussed publicly: Veteran teachers not only have higher salaries that could make it easier to weather an unpaid strike, they also may have more reason to hold out for the better deal.

A few stands down, you’ll find Lake-Lehman High School Band girls flitting around the booth they occupy every year, taking orders from their elders and heating the oil to fry potato pancakes. Diane Lockard, a member of the band’s booster club, said they don’t know how many single potato pancakes they’ve served. Rather, they measure by how many 5-gallon buckets of potato pancake batter they go through. They have 125 gallons of the batter on hand to make the famous fair fare. “Yeah, we go through a lot of them because we make the best,” Lockard said. The county fair food stand funds the band’s operations for most of the year, Lockard said. Other vendors selling multicolored candy corn, lemonade and pizza by the slice lined the the aisles on the way to the fair exhibits. The exhibits hold what the fair’s founder, the Dallas Rotary Club, intended when it formalized the community event 51 years ago. They wanted a place for the Back Mountain to celebrate the harvest season. What started as a parade through town with Boy Scouts performing Native American dances and high school bands playing their tunes has turned into a robust yearly attraction. “It’s taken incredible life; it’s grown and prospered,” said state Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, as she spoke during the opening ceremony. In the cow barn, Tessa Zimmerman, 9, and Kaylie Skovira, 9, were tending to their calves, Daisy and Seven. Seven was named for the markings on her forehead, Zimmerman said. The two Lehman girls, members of the Yellow Rose 4-H Club, are to display their yearling heifers Friday afternoon. The cows will be judged for their obedience, physical qualities and cleanliness. The two girls seemed a little apprehensive about their debuts, but confident in their efforts so far. “The hardest part was putting (Daisy) in the trailer to get here,” Skovira said with a laugh. “This is America at its best,” said motivational speaker Bob Perks of Dallas. “This is where love starts. … This is where the harvest is.” The forecast calls for sun and warm weather until Monday. If predictions hold out, this will be the first fair to have all-sunny skies since 2000, said fair Chairwoman Brenda Pugh.

From page 1A asked lawmakers to unite first behind such a plan. In Stockholm, Sweden, where Obama was traveling on Wednesday, the White House praised the vote, and said it would continue to seek support for “a military response that is narrowly tailored to enforce the prohibition on the use of chemical weapons, and sufficient to protect the national security interests of the United States of America.” Earlier, at a news conference Obama said, “I always preserve the right and responsibility to act on behalf of America’s national security.” In a challenge to lawmakers back home, he said Congress’ credibility was on the line, not his own, despite saying a year ago that the use of chemical weapons would cross a “red line.” Secretary of State John Kerry said he believes Obama will address the nation on Syria in the next few days. The president returns home from overseas Friday night. Obama’s request also received its first hearing in the House during the day, and Kerry responded heatedly when Rep.

From page 1A and Morris suffered a gunshot wound to her face at Building 328 on Aug. 24. McFarlane was treated and released from Geisinger Medical Center, Danville. Morris remains hospitalized. Search warrant affidavits state McFarlane’s father, William Cash, known as “Junie,” was upset that two men were in the apartment of his daughter’s mother, Diana Page. Cash entered the apartment through a rear door as a man walked out the front door. Cash asked Page what was going on. When she did not answer, Cash went out the rear door when gunfire erupted, according to the affidavits. Cash told investigators he grabbed his younger daughter, a 2-year-old who was not injured, and tossed her to the back of the room. As he went to grab McFarlane, she was shot, the affidavit states. Morris’ mother, Kia, was visiting Page the day of the shooting. Investigators believe one of the suspects tried to leave town in a 1999 Dodge minivan with a tire on the roof. Investigators seized the vehicle in the area of 510 S. Empire St., where Taleek T. Sistrunk, 21, Jevaun Darryl Brown, 24, both of Wilkes-Barre, and Trevor Whittaker, 26, of Brooklyn, N.Y., were arrested after a fight. Preliminary hearings of Sistrunk, Brown and Whittaker are scheduled today before District Judge Martin Kane. Hindering allegation At Wednesday’s preliminary hearing for Alford, Pittston police officer Samuel Desimone testified he assisted state police Trooper Robert Lombardo and U.S. marshals in searching a house on Church Street, Pittston, for Keon Tyler, 25, on June 4. Tyler was wanted by Plains Township police on charges he robbed another man in the parking lot of Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs casino on Sept. 6, 2012. Lombardo went to the front door and talked to Alford as Tyler jumped 30 to 35 feet from a rear porch in an escape attempt, Desimone said. Tyler was captured after a foot chase that ended near the Susquehanna River, Desimone said. Lombardo and Desimone testified that Alford claimed he did not know Tyler. Pittston police charged Alford with two counts of hindering apprehension on Aug. 27, three days after the shooting at Sherman Hills. Barilla determined prosecutors established a case against Alford, sending the charges to county court. Court records say Tyler on Aug. 13 pleaded guilty to a robbery charge. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 17.

Goodell: Settlement is a ‘significant amount of money’
AP Sports Writer


NeW YOrk — NFL Commissioner roger goodell took issue with the notion that the league’s $765 million settlement with former players is a paltry sum compared to the sport’s revenues. “This is a significant amount of money,” he said Wednesday. “The plaintiffs also agreed it was an appropriate amount. The mediator felt it was an appropriate amount.” goodell made his first public comments since the settlement to the lawsuits was announced last week. More than 4,500 former players, some of them suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or depression, accused the NFL of concealing the long-term dangers of concussions and rushing injured players back onto the field.

“We were able to find common ground to be able to get relief to the players and their families now rather than spending years litigating,” goodell said at an event in Manhattan to promote February’s New York/ New Jersey Super Bowl. The settlement was announced last Thursday after two months of courtordered mediation and is subject to approval by a federal judge. It does not include an admission from the NFL that it hid information from players about head injuries. “We think it’s the right thing to move forward and try to do what we can to help our players,” goodell said. Some former players questioned the size of the settlement, considering it stretches over 20 years and will be divided among thousands of people — and considering See gOODeLL | 3B

DeNVer — John elway has been down this lonely road before, trudging through the tunnel in deafening silence after a stunning loss at home as the AFC’s prohibitive Super Bowl favorite following a 13-3 regular season. It happened to elway the quarterback after the 1996 season when Denver lost to Jacksonville 30-27. It occurred again for elway the executive in January when the Broncos were beaten 38-35 by Baltimore in the divisional round. elway rebounded the first

8:30 p.m., today TV: NBC time to win back-to-back Super Bowls. He said the pain of that pratfall against the Jaguars was the impetus to make them into champions. “It was a great incentive for us to come back and have an even better year the following year,” elway said. After engineering a $125 million offseason spending spree and acquiring wide receiver Wes

Welker and massive right guard Louis Vasquez — to help new center Manny ramirez fend off the likes of ravens nose tackle Haloti Ngata — elway is aiming for history to repeat itself after this latest heartbreak. Five things to watch for as the Broncos kick off the season Thursday night against the champion ravens: ROAD RAVENS: Joe Flacco looms larger than life in Denver, and not just because he engineered the stunning playoff upset with his 70-yard touchdown throw to Jacoby Jones that tied it at 35 with 31 seconds left in regulation. The NFL’s marketing machine put up gigantic banners of Flacco alongside Peyton Manning on the Broncos’ stadium to pro-

mote the league’s first game of the 2013 season. Fans are furious, Manning is miffed and Flacco is flummoxed. Still, Flacco reasoned, “being hated is not a bad thing.” This flag flap could have been avoided had baseball’s Orioles moved their game Thursday night to accommodate the champs for a customary home kickoff. “I’m not too worried about it,” Flacco said. “It’s not like they’re taking a home game away from us. They’re just making us play on the road maybe earlier than we wanted to.” ELVIS RETURNS: “Doom & gloom” is what elvis See reMATCH | 3B

Pennetta reaches first Grand Slam semifinals

Tennis star seeking aid in Wyoming Valley
For The Times Leader


NeW YOrk — A year ago, Flavia Pennetta was hanging out at her parents’ home on Italy’s heel, recovering from right wrist surgery, watching the U.S. Open on TV — and wondering how long it would take her to get back on the tennis tour. Look at her now. Pennetta is a grand Slam semifinalist for the

first time at age 31, and in her 41st major tournament. Unseeded, ranked only 83rd, Pennetta got to the final four at Flushing Meadows with a 6-4, 6-1 victory Wednesday over another Italian, 10th-seeded roberta Vinci, who happens to be her long-time friend and former doubles partner. They know each other’s games, and each other’s personalities, perfectly. While Pennetta was laid up after her operation last

With the final tennis grand Slam event taking place in New York City, the world’s best are looking for one last run at glory before the season ends. One such player was veteran Bethanie Mattek-Sands. Sands, at 28-years-old, has been a tennis professional for half of her life, reaching as high as No.30 in the world in 2011. In the tennis world, Sands is known as a fierce competitor. She’s known for her ever-changing hairstyles and colors, her high knee socks, and there was even a period where she wore eye black on court. even though Mattek-Sands is not a widely-known name outside of tennis, she is particularly known to one house-

Clark honored bycaptaincy
AP Sports Writer

PITTSBURGH — Ryan Clark spent all preseason talking about how rejuvenated Troy Polamalu looks in practice. Listen to Clark long enough, and the Pittsburgh Steelers safety throws around words like “amazing” and “incredible” when describing his future Hall of Fame teammate, who missed half of the 2012 season with a calf injury. Thing is, the 33-yearold Clark has a good 18 months on Polamalu. Oh, and he played 15 games last season, missing only the opener in Denver due to a blood condition that makes it dangerous for him to play

at altitude. Ask Clark why there’s so much chatter about Polamalu instead of himself, and Clark just laughs. “I’m not as important,” he said. “That’s why nobody cares about that.” Nobody, it seems, except the guys inside the Steelers locker room. More than a decade into a career that’s seen him evolve from longshot undrafted rookie free agent to unfiltered — for better or worse — mouthpiece for the league’s top defense, Clark will serve as one of four Pittsburgh captains this fall. While calling the honor “a blessing,” it’s also a position he tried to avoid for years. When his LSU teammates chose to look elsewhere for

leadership during his time with the Tigers, Clark was relieved. “(You) always ran out of the tunnel last, (you) have to hug like 18 people on the sideline before (you) can even play a game,” Clark said. “Coach (Mike) Tomlin even asked me last year against Washington, did I want to go out and be a captain and I was like, ‘I’m good coach, I want to stick to my routine.’” Maybe, but he’ll gladly walk to midfield for the coin toss on Sunday when the Steelers open the season against Tennessee and stand alongside Ben Roethlisberger, Brett Keisel and Maurkice Pouncey. He’ll shake hands. He’ll brohug. He’ll play nice with the

referees. Yes, it’s mostly ceremonial. It’s also symbolic of Clark’s slow steady rise from afterthought to leader. Overlooked in the 2002 NFL Draft, Clark carries a chip on his shoulder that’s never really gone away. Not even a Pro Bowl appearance in 2011 or his evolution into one of the more cerebral players in the pros has allowed Clark — at least in his head — to shed the stigma of that comes with being passed over 245 times by general managers who are supposed to know good football players from marginal talent. “Kids, they come in now and they’re asking me what round I was taken in,” Clark said. “But you can believe

Old man Vick embraces his quarterback legacy

PHILADELPHIA — Before RG3, Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson, there was Michael Vick. The 33-year-old Vick may be the old man on the block now, but he’s proud to have helped pave the way for multidimensional quarterbacks in the NFL. More teams are turning to QBs who can run and the read-option offense has become the latest trend. Vick gets his first chance to play in Chip Kelly’s version of this up-tempo offense when the Philadelphia Eagles open the season against Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins on Monday night. While Griffin, Kaepernick and Wilson get most of the attention for their success last year, Vick isn’t ready to pass the torch and drift off to retirement. “I feel like I was kind of the ambassador of this offense in the NFL, like I was the originator,” he said Wednesday. “In 2006, I ran for 1,000 yards running the same type of read-option offense. It’s in the record books and I couldn’t have done it without running the read option. I don’t think you can be a dropback passer and run for 1,000 yards in one season, so it was a big accomplishment for me. “It was something that I was shooting for. I probably had some other goals set, but it was one of

them.” Vick has evolved as a quarterback since his days with the Atlanta Falcons when he ran first and passed when he had to. He proved he could thrive in the pocket in 2010 when he had his best all-around season, led the Eagles to an NFC East title and was a Pro Bowl starter. Vick replaced six-time Pro Bowl QB Donovan McNabb in Philadelphia. McNabb was another gifted runner who despised the label “running quarterback.” Vick embraces it, but also wants to be known for his passing ability. “I think as kids — when we’re in the backyard — we idolize certain guys and we want to be like those guys who we look up to,” he said. “You don’t want to just be viewed as a running quarterback, like all you can do is run or ‘he’s just athletic.’ We put a lot of hard work into our craft and what we do, to be able to go out and execute and run an NFL offense, which is hard, because if anybody could do it, we probably wouldn’t be here. “Sometimes you don’t get credit for what you do, but I think at the end of the day, you’ve got to be the best football player that you can be.” Vick is the oldest player on Philadelphia’s roster and he’ll be the oldest QB to start a season opener for the Eagles since 35-year-old Ron Jaworski in 1986. He knows there’s a generation of players in the league now who grew up playing him on video games.

Some of those guys are defenders he still outruns despite a 10-year age difference and some are the quarterbacks stealing his spotlight. Vick appreciates the recognition they give him for being sort of a trailblazer. “It means a lot,” he said. “It means the way I’ve been able to play the game and others before me has trickled down to the younger generation.” As for RG3, Vick said: “I’m a fan of his just like he’s a fan of mine. It’s great that you have guys that respect what you do. I like the way he plays the game, the desire he brings, his intensity, his heart, the way he carries himself with his teammates and you can tell everybody in the organization likes him and that’s the type of character you have to have as a quarterback in this league. “You want everybody to like you, and you want to be that franchise guy.” Just don’t ask if Vick if he’s watched film on Griffin to learn from him. “I was running the read option before RG3 started running the read option so I know how to do it,” he said. “The thing I respect is the way they do it and the way he did it last year and putting his team in position to excel and be successful. “He’s taken it to another level and I have a lot of respect for him.” And they’ll square off on Monday.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Once Bills quarterback EJ Manuel practiced Sunday for the first time in two weeks, coach Doug Marrone had an inkling the rookie first-round draft pick might be ready to open the season. On Wednesday, Marrone was convinced, announcing Manuel had fully recovered from a left knee injury and will start against the New England Patriots on Sunday. “He’s 110 percent. He looks good out there,” Marrone said following practice. “And that’s what we’re going to go with.” That’s a relief for Marrone. He was expressing uncertainty about Manuel’s status since the quarterback was hurt scrambling during a 20-16 preseason win over Minnesota Aug. 16. “Obviously, being a Catholic, there were a lot of prayers to that,” Marrone said. “I mean, honestly, you go home and say ‘Gosh, I hope he’s healthy,’ but you really don’t know.” Manuel was far more confident he would be ready, especially after taking part in individual drills on Sunday in his first practice since having what the team called a “minor procedure” Aug. 18. “I felt I would be good to go a few days ago as far as my knee,” Manuel said. “I

know mentally, if I had the chance to go out and play, I’d be ready for it.” Manuel showed little sign of a limp despite wearing a small brace during practice. “I haven’t had any hesitation,” Manuel said, noting he hasn’t determined whether he’ll wear the brace on Sunday. “It feels fine. It feels strong, so I can do all my normal movements.” He opened practice as he had done in training camp. Taking the snap, Manuel dumped a short pass over the middle to C.J. Spiller, and then took off running without a sign of a hitch toward the end zone with the rest of the starting offense. Manuel also spent another half-hour throwing passes following practice.

His return is the first bit of positive news for the retooled and rookie-laden Bills, who have been stung by a series of setbacks over the past week. Starting cornerback Stephon Gilmore will miss the first month with a broken left wrist. Starting safety Jairus Byrd’s status is uncertain because of a foot injury and after he missed most of the offseason before signing his franchise tender two weeks ago. Kicker became an issue after rookie Dustin Hopkins hurt his right groin in practice Monday. Marrone called the injury minor, but ruled Hopkins out from playing Sunday. Dan Carpenter will fill in after the fifth-year player signed Tuesday.

From page 1B the NFL takes in more than $9 billion a year, a figure that will rise when new TV contracts start in 2014. Goodell noted that those billions are revenues, not profits. The settlement applies to all past NFL players and spouses of those who are deceased — a group that could total more than 20,000. It sets aside $75 million for medical exams and $10 million for medical research. Individual payouts would be capped at $5 million for men with Alzheimer’s disease; $4 million for those diagnosed after their deaths with a brain condition called chronic traumatic encephalopathy; and $3 million for players with dementia. The NFL’s litigation may still not be over. Four former players filed a federal lawsuit in New Orleans on Sunday against the league and helmet maker Riddell, claiming they hid information about the dangers of brain injury. They want medical care for past, current and future NFL players.

As the league and retired players debate what happened in the past, the NFL has promoted its initiatives aimed at making the game safer. Goodell appeared on “CBS This Morning” earlier Wednesday to help announce a program with Under Armour and GE to donate money toward projects that prevent head injuries.

From page 1B and Von Miller called themselves in Denver, where the Pro Bowl pass rushers combined for 29½ of the Broncos’ league-leading 52 sacks in 2012. Dumervil signed with the Ravens in free agency after his infamous fax foul-up in Denver led to his release by the Broncos. He won’t see Miller on Thursday night because Denver’s All-Pro linebacker is serving a six-game drug suspension. “He’s like a younger brother,” Dumervil said. “We’ve spoken. We talk all the time. He’s dealing with tough times and he’ll fight through it.” RAHIM’S REDEMPION: Safety Rahim Moore is out to make amends for the most memorable mistake in Denver’s playoff loss, when he mistimed his jump on Flacco’s heave to Jones. “I haven’t seen it from him one snap or one second where he’s dwelled on that,” Broncos secondary coach Cory Undlin said. “If anything, he’s used it as motivation.” Veteran cornerback Champ Bailey appreciates Moore’s accountability but noted there were plenty of goats in that game. “He wasn’t the guy that put us in that situation,” Bailey said. “So, we’ve all got to own that one.” RAVENS REBUILT: For the first time in the Ravens’ 18-year existence, Ray Lewis isn’t manning middle linebacker. Daryl Smith, who signed a free agent deal in June, is the veteran replacement. He’s a sure tackler entering his 10th season and could help provide some of the veteran presence the Ravens lost. Smith was part of a Ravens defensive revamp as they also said goodbye to starters Ed Reed, Bernard Pollard, Paul Kruger and Cary Williams, and hello to Dumervil, Chris Canty, Marcus Spears and Michael Huff. Flacco parlayed his fantastic playoff run into a six-year, $120.6 million contract, but also lost his two favorite targets as receiver Anquan Boldin was traded and tight end Dennis Pitta is sidelined with a fractured hip. RECORD RETURNER: As a former special teams coordinator, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he had “reluctant admiration” for Trindon Holliday, who piled up an NFLrecord 248 yards in returns against the Ravens in January. Denver’s diminutive returner became the first NFL player to take back both a punt and a kickoff for TDs in a playoff game. Those touchdowns were the longest punt (90 yards) and kickoff (104 yards) returns for scores ever in the postseason. Of course, Holliday was a footnote when Jones’ tying TD grab made him the star instead. Otherwise, it might have been Holliday and not Jones putting his fingerprints on the Lombardi Trophy, appearing on Jimmy Kimmel’s late show and then prancing across the floor with Karina Smirnoff on “Dancing With The Stars.”

One game shouldn’t define a season

t i m e S l e a d e r P l ay e r o f t h e W e e k
Tyler Burger RB – Northwest The heat and humidity Saturday night at Wilkes-Barre Memorial Stadium took its toll on players from Holy Redeemer and Northwest. Among them was Northwest starting running back Austin Mazonkey. Burger stepped in and filled the void, rushing 19 times for 136 yards and two touchdowns as the Rangers hung on for a 28-24 victory over Holy Redeemer. Burger didn’t have his first carry until late in the first quarter. He had 12 rushes for 86 yards in the second half, with his 38-yard TD run giving Northwest a 10-point lead with 10:53 remaining. Given Consideration Mike Baur — QB — Wyo. Valley West C.J. Curry – QB – Berwick Isaac Foust – RB – Williamsport

Down by six, ball on its 6-yard line, 1:56 to play. Quarterback Josh Sayre gets Lake-Lehman out of the hole with a 34-yard strike down the left sideline to Joey Vigil. Then he connects for 21 yards on a slant to tight end Tyler Long. A pass interference penalty follows, putting the ball at the Old Forge 21 with 57 seconds left. Two plays later, it was over. Old Forge linebacker Shane Schuback, an all-state pick last year, makes a perfect break on a pass. Interception. Old Forge hangs on 13-7. “It was a game that would’ve put us on the map,” Lehman coach Jerry Gilsky said. Lehman has always been on the map … as the football program next door to highly successful rival Dallas. And a victory at Class A power Old Forge would have brought some legitimacy to those preseason accolades heaped on the Black Knights, who are considered the Wyoming Valley Conference’s best hope for a District 2 Class 2A title. But one loss shouldn’t define a season. There are nine more games to go before the postseason begins. The Black Knights need to digest what Wyoming Area coach Randy Spencer said after Saturday’s 35-7 loss to Scranton Prep. “You look at last year’s team, we started 1-2,” Spencer said. Wyoming Area, a preseason favorite for the D2-2A crown in 2012, rebounded to win the district title and make its first state appearance since 2003. History just might find a way of repeating itself. Time will tell.

• Holy Redeemer to pass block well. Quarterback Jimmy Strickland was sacked only twice against Northwest, one being the coverage variety. But for the most part, Redeemer’s line did a nice job against some big fellas from Northwest. • Hanover Area’s defense to shut down Mid Valley. The Hawkeyes allowed just 94 yards to the Spartans in their 12-7 victory. The only Mid Valley touchdown came via kick return. That’s a heck of an effort from a team that surrendered 346 yards and 34.4 points per game last year.

The artificial turf at Scranton Memorial Stadium looks fine from a distance, but up close it’s just about had it. The hash marks and yard lines are worn out pretty badly. A Wyoming Area assistant said after Saturday afternoon’s game there were areas where you can lift up the turf and stick your hand under. He wasn’t exaggerating. While I didn’t inspect every inch, I found a spot around the 20-yard line on the scoreboard end of the field where I could stick my foot under the turf because a seam separated. The life of these fake grass fields is about 10 years, give or take. The turf at Scranton Memorial has been there since at least 2003 and gets heavy use. Three high school football teams plus the NEPA Miners use it. And that’s just

Lake-Lehman sophomore wingback Joey Vigil better get used to his name being mispronounced. The stadium announcer at Old Forge was saying it like it’s spelled in the first half, but his last name is actually pronounced Vee-hill. Obviously, someone told the announcer because Vigil’s name was announced correctly in the second half. After last Friday’s game, Vigil is on the way to making a name for himself. He rushed 13 times for 140 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 45 yards.

Three things that were expected and unexpected that happened in Week 1.
The Expected:

career highs for the senior who looks like he has spent plenty of time in the weight room. • Hazleton Area being unable to stop Scranton running back Jake McCarthy, who rushed for 232 yards and three TDs in the 45-29 victory over the Cougars. McCarthy, a junior who has verbally committed to play baseball at Virginia, is the premier back in District 2. • Dallas and Wyoming Area to struggle in their openers. Dallas lost 40-0 to Wyoming Valley West, and Wyoming Area fell hard to Scranton Prep 35-7. Both perennial playoff teams were gouge by graduation and could find it difficult to make the postseason.
The Unexpected:

Berwick receiver Andrew Force is glad to see Dain Kowalski, a transfer from Central Columbia, in the backfield. Kowalski starred at Central Columbia last year and fills the void left by the graduated Matt Cashman, who rushed for over 1,300 yards in 2012. “It’s awesome having Dain come over from Central Columbia. He can do so many things for you. He’s a dangerous runner who can go inside, break one outside, cutback, break tackles. He plays defensive back, covers well and is a good tackler. When you have someone like him join your team, you definitely are better than you were without him.”

Smith to start at QB for Jets
AP Sports Writer

From page 1B suspended top target Allen Robinson, O’Brien’s opening drive script called for Hackenberg to run his no-huddle “NASCAR” package. O’Brien knew even midway through training camp that he could trust Hackenberg to be able to switch paces on offense when called upon. He was adamant that it wouldn’t be an issue. “Absolutely no challenge with changing the tempo with a young quarterback, especially one that’s smart,” O’Brien said. “Made some mistakes, sure, but (he’s) done a really nice job of operating the offense.” Teammates, of course, knew all about Hackenberg’s accolades in high school and how ESPN named him the country’s top pro-style quarterback recruit in this past signing class. It takes a lot more than that, however, to lead an offense. That started in June, when he arrived in Happy Valley. “Once he got on campus and you had conversations with him, you find out he’s very poised and very confident,” senior tackle Garry Gilliam said. “He’s a pretty mature kid. He handled himself well on the road in an NFL stadium for his first away game. “We’re looking forward to big things out of him. He’s a great guy.” From there, the big hurdle was picking up O’Brien’s complex playbook during preseason practices. Wide receiver Matt Zanellato said that after a few weeks, it became obvious that Hackenberg’s confidence was beginning to take off. “It’s a complete NFL offense,” Zanellato said. “Before we got into training camp, he had a sheet with him during (informal workouts) to call plays. I’m sure we’ll see real big strides in him as the season progresses. “Matt McGloin was a fifth-year senior last year and he got more and more confident as the season went on. I’m sure we’ll see that from Hackenberg as the season goes on. He’ll get even more and more comfortable in the scheme.” But finding that initial comfort level in the opener wasn’t going to be easy. Especially with Robinson benched for the first half. That handicap kept the Nittany Lions’ passing game looking short for much of the first half. Hackenberg opened 11-for-15 in the opening 30 minutes but had just 69 yards passing. His deepest throw, intended for tight end Kyle Carter, was intercepted. Hackenberg settled down in the second half, going 11-for-16 for 209 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Certainly Robinson’s return was a huge part of that, but so was just getting his first game experience. “As a freshman coming in, the first snap is always going to be big (to get through),” Hackenberg said. “Once I got that out of the way and started getting a few completions under my belt, and the team started moving the ball, I definitely felt more comfortable.” To further that, Hackenberg simply needs to be exposed to more and more situations. His second interception against the Orange came on a zone blitz where a defensive end dropped back into coverage as linebackers brought the pressure from the outside. “I’m not sure Christian has ever even seen that before in a live game,” O’Brien said with a bit of a laugh. It was a mistake, and a very costly one as the Orange scored on the next play to pull within six late in the fourth quarter. It was also a sign that O’Brien isn’t going to play it safe just because his quarterback is a few months removed from his prom. “He’s got good poise, he’s a smart guy,” O’Brien said. “Like I said after the game, it’s one game and he needs to make improvement. We spent a lot of time in the film room (Monday) showing these guys the tape and I personally spent a lot of time with Christian, showing him the mistakes that he made and where he’s got to improve week to week. “He’s got a great demeanor, great poise. Smart guy. Fun to coach. And he’ll improve.”


FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Geno Smith is the new face of the franchise for the New York Jets. Well, at least for the opening game of the season. Beyond that, we’ll see. The rookie quarterback will start for the Jets in the opener at home Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The team finally confirmed Wednesday what had been expected since Mark Sanchez injured his right shoulder in a preseason game against the Giants on Aug. 24. “They’ll try to rattle my cage,” Smith said of the Buccaneers. “I expect those guys to come out fired up and they want to make a statement. They’ve got a rookie quarterback and they’ll want to hit me and get me off my game, but I expect those things. And I look forward to it.” But, will Greg Schiano’s defense be able to unnerve him? “No,” Smith said with a confident smile. Smith, who had an up-and-

down preseason, was the team’s second-round draft pick out of West Virginia after he was projected by many to be selected early in the opening round. After Smith threw three interceptions and took a safety in three-plus quarters against the Giants, it was widely assumed Sanchez had won the job. But Rex Ryan chose to put Sanchez in the game in the fourth quarter — and he suffered the injury that could sideline him several weeks. “We realize that a rookie quarterback and all that, that’s certainly a challenge,” Ryan said. “I think our guys are ready to rally behind Geno, and the big thing we’ve told Geno is, ‘You just have to be part of the solution.’” Despite announcing Smith as the starter for this week, Ryan wouldn’t commit to him as the long-term guy under center. It was an approach that was echoed by both owner Woody Johnson and general manager John Idzik. “We’ll always put the best player we can on the field on Sunday, and that will continue,” Johnson said. “The competition’s ongoing.”

New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith (7) runs with the ball during the team’s practice in Florham Park, N.J., on Monday.

With Smith stepping into the starter’s role, it makes Sanchez’s status with the team unclear. Ryan has still never declared a winner to the competition — and he might not ever do so. If Smith can be solid during Sanchez’s absence, he could make it hard for Ryan to pull him. And, by never saying whether Smith or Sanchez had won the job, Ryan would never technically have benched the anointed starter. While many look at the move as the team moving forward with a new quarterback, Idzik was asked if, when healthy, Sanchez has a chance to be the Jets’ starter again. “Yes, of course he does,” Idzik said.

Pens looking for Hall of Famers

Fans can take part in selecting the inaugural class by visiting wbspenguins.com or the Official Facebook Page of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. The following players are eligible: G Adam Berkhoel D Josef Melichar mined by combining fans votes along with input from local media members and Penguins front office representatives. The inaugural Penguins Hall of Fame class will F Dennis Bonvie F Eric Meloche F Jesse Boulerice D Alain Nasreddine D Brendan Buckley F Steve Parsons F Greg Crozier D Peter Ratchuk F Robert Dome D John Slaney F Shane Endicott be announced during the month of October 2013. Barrett hopes to have the players representing the first Hall of Fame class come to a home game for a ceremony, but that will all F Michael Sivek F Jon Filewich F Martin Sonnenberg F Dave Gove G Robbie Tallas D Chris Kelleher D Mike Wilson F Jason MacDonald F Alexander Zevakhin F Alexander Mathieu depend on their schedules and availability, he said. As more former Penguins retire and reach the eligibility requirements, the list of potential Hall of Famers will expand, Barrett said.

It took 15 years for the Wilkes-Barre/S cranton Penguins to create their own Hall of Fame, but there’s a good reason, according to team CEO Jeff Barrett. “You have to have some history to create some history,” he said. Now, as the Penguins enter their 15th season, the organization feels that

enough players have come through, and made an impact, that a Hall of Fame is warranted. So do the fans. According to Barrett, voting for the first class opened Wednesday, and in less than a day, the Penguins received more than 300 emails with fans’ choices. In order to be considered for inclusion, players must meet the following requirements:

• Must have spent parts of at least two seasons in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton • Been retired from professional hockey for at least two full seasons • Made a significant contribution to the Penguins and community, either on the ice or off “It’s not just about their play on the ice, it’s about how they worked with the community, their teammates, the organization and the fans,” Barrett said.

“It encompasses everything.” And it’s bound to spark some lively debate over who deserves a Hall of Fame nod and who doesn’t. Barrett views that as a positive. “I think the discussion will get emotional and it’s fun because people are excited to make their case for their favorite player,” he said. “They’re actively involved.” Selections will be deter-

NEW YORK — Struggling ace CC Sabathia pitched effectively into the eighth inning before Mariano Rivera earned his first four-out save in more than two years, helping the New York Yankees hold off the Chicago White Sox 6-5 on Wednesday night for a three-game sweep. Robinson Cano homered for the Yankees, trying to chase down a playoff berth with a late-season charge. Brett Gardner hit a two-run triple and Lyle Overbay an RBI double in a four-run fourth against Erik Johnson (0-1), who was making his major league debut. New York, which entered 2½ games behind Tampa Bay for the second AL wild card, has won 15 of 18 home games and 17 of 24 overall. Next up for New York, an 11-game gauntlet against division rivals Boston and Baltimore — beginning tonight with a four-game set against the first-place Red Sox.

OAKLAND, Calif. — Jarrod Parker got plenty of home-run help and pitched his way into Oakland’s record book, and the surging Athletics pulled into a tie atop the AL West with Texas by overpowering the Rangers. Parker (11-6) allowed two runs in six innings to extend his unbeaten streak to 18 straight starts, eclipsing Catfish Hunter’s Oakland mark set from June 2-Sept. 3, 1973. Parker also has won his last nine decisions, the most by an A’s pitcher since Dan Haren won 10 in a row in 2007. Brandon Moss, Daric Barton and Coco Crisp each hit two-run homers and Josh Donaldson added a three-run drive for Oakland.

Zimmermann wins 16th for Nationals
Braves. Gee (11-9) cruised after he was given a 5-0 lead in the third. The right-hander allowed one run on four hits in seven innings. Freddie Freeman homered off Mets reliever Vic Black with two outs in the eighth. The Mets had 12 hits, including 11 in only 4 1-3 innings against Kameron Loe (0-2), who made his first start in the majors since 2007. He filled in for Julio Teheran, who was given a rest — a possible sign of things to come this month as the Braves move closer to the postseason. At least two Mets hitters reached base in each of Loe’s innings. LaTroy Hawkins gave up a double to Elliot Johnson to lead off the ninth. Dan Uggla and pinch-hitter Andrelton Simmons popped up and Hawkins earned his seventh save when pinch-hitter Chris Johnson struck out.

The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — Jordan Zimmermann became the National League’s first 16-game winner, pitching seven solid innings to lead the Washington Nationals past the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 on Wednesday night. Zimmermann (16-8) struck out five, walked one and allowed two runs in winning his fourth straight start. Ryan Zimmerman’s solo shot off Phillies reliever Zach Miner in the seventh inning tied the game at 2. Jake Diekman (1-4) walked the leadoff batter in the eighth, then allowed pinch-runner Jeff Kobernus to score on a fielder’s choice for the winning run. The Nationals sat outfielder Bryce Harper to rest his ailing hip. The Phillies wasted a chance to tie the game in the eighth with runners on first and third and one out. Craig Stammen struck out Darin Ruf and the ball scooted away from catcher Jhonatan Solano on strike three. Chase Utley was tagged out on a mad dash for home by a lunging Solano for the strike ‘em out-tag ‘em out double play. Rafael Soriano worked the ninth for his 38th save.

Logan Morrison had a tworun homer. SAN DIEGO — Pablo Sandoval hit three homers and drove in six runs, leading a rare power show by the San Francisco Giants. Sandoval started the day with 10 home runs this season. He then hit a two-run shot in the fifth inning, a leadoff drive in the eighth and a three-run homer in the ninth. Sandoval’s only previous three-homer game came in the opener of last year’s World Series. He wound up as the MVP of the Series. San Francisco hit six home runs overall. The Giants began the game tied with Miami for the fewest homers in the majors with 80. Tim Lincecum (9-13) won again at Petco Park as the Giants avoided the three-game sweep.

Young Spieth picked for Presidents Cup
AP Golf Writer

Jordan Spieth started the season without status on any tour. He ends it by going to the Presidents Cup. Fred Couples used his captain’s picks Wednesday on the 20-year-old Spieth and Webb Simpson to fill out his 12-man team, making Spieth the youngest American to play in the Presidents Cup since it began in 1994. “I’m just super stoked,” Spieth said. Nick Price used his picks on a pair of rookies — Brendon de Jonge of Zimbabwe and Marc Leishman of Australia — as the International team tries to win for only the second time. The matches are Oct. 3-6 at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio. Spieth was just starting his sophomore year at Texas a year ago when he decided to turn pro at the end of 2012, even though he failed to get out of the second stage of PGA Tour qualifying and was not a member of any tour. He played well enough to earn special temporary status on the PGA Tour, won the John Deere

Classic in July and lost in a playoff last month at the Wyndham Championship. He is assured of being the first player since Tiger Woods in 1996 to start a season without status and reach the Tour Championship.

Couples left out young players his last two times as captain — Dustin Johnson in 2009, Keegan Bradley in 2011, even though Bradley had won the PGA Championship for his second win as a rookie. The captain said he had help from his team “and probably all of the United States” in taking Spieth. Couples said not taking Bradley in 2011 “wore on me a little bit,” especially after watching Bradley play well at the Ryder Cup a year later. “I’m going with the young guy and our whole team is excited,” Couples said. “We have a great team, but to pick Jordan I think was the right move.” By taking the rookie, Couples left Jim Furyk off an American team for the first time since the 1997 Ryder Cup, ending a streak of 15 straight teams. Couples said it was such a tough decision that he did not call Furyk, and left him a text message late Tuesday night. Furyk didn’t mind the delivery — “All you’re looking for is contact,” he said — and while he was disappointed, he said Couples was in a tough spot. “Everyone is going to argue what the name a few from the NFL, as well as Grant Hill, Scott Burrell and Monte Williams from the NBA. Conway has treated local residents and former pros Joe Amato and Andy Ashby, along with Raghib and Qadry Ismail. Sands’ history with Wyoming Valley goes deep, as Qadry Ismail was her brother’s track coach. It was Ismail that was responsible for pointing her in the direction of Conway. “He’s another mentor, a fellow athlete that has walked through the fire and gone through a lot of different things,” Sands said of Ismail. withdrawal put Pennetta in the field. Taking full advantage, Pennetta has won five consecutive matches in straight sets, eliminating four seeded players along the way: No. 4 Errani, No. 21 Simona Halep and No. 27 Svetlana Kuznetsova.

right call is,” Furyk said. “He had so many good players … he wasn’t going to make a bad choice.” Couples also said he would consider Johnson, who hasn’t won since the Tournament of Championship in January at Kapalua. Simpson was inside the top 10 who qualified for most of the two-year process until the final hole, when Zach Johnson made a 25-foot birdie putt at the TPC Boston to move into the 10th spot by what amounted to $5,715 in PGA Tour earnings. Couples had said Monday night he was leaning toward Simpson. Furyk narrowly made the Presidents Cup last time and then went 5-0 at Royal Melbourne. He also is a past champion at the Memorial, played at Muirfield Village. “The whole thing was not fun,” Couples said. “I know all the stats. But at the same time, Jordan deserves to be on the team and Webb Simpson is a class act, great player. As Nick Price says, you get two picks and those are who we are going with.” Price, on the other hand, leaned on

history at Muirfield Village in guiding his picks. He said Tim Clark does not have a long history playing the Memorial, and that de Jonge and Leishman were better suited for Muirfield Village. “We can debate amongst the three guys from here until eternity as to what you think and who you feel would be best,” Price said. “But I had to make the decision yesterday, and I really think that out of the three guys, Brendon and Marc would probably end up playing Muirfield better than Tim does.” The picks meant that Price will have six rookies on his team, though it’s not like experience has helped the International side in the past. The Presidents Cup has become a lopsided event, with Americans holding a 7-1-1 advantage. They have won the last four times, and the last three matches have not been particularly close. Besides, the Americans had six rookies a year ago and won handily in Melbourne. “It’s going to be a tough job for us to win the cup, but I think we have got a really strong team right now,” Price said.

From page 1B Clinic on Pierce Street, Kingston. Conway is a trained chiropractor, but over the many years of research, he has become a sports injury specialist. He also teaches athletes better ways of developing strength, explosion, speed and endurance without the risk of injury. Conway accomplishes this through an accelerated rapid relief treatment treating patients with all types of sports injuries,

including some of the top names in sport, like Sands. “Even though I’ve been formerly trained as a chiropractor, I’ve always been interested in sports,” Conway said. “When I was treating people, I knew there was more, so I started my research.” At Conway Clinic, an athlete is trained to properly absorb force effectively reducing injury. Once this is mastered, the athlete can then increase strength, speed, and endurance. “The neurological system is the key to it,” Conway said. “We can test an athlete to see what muscles are turning on

and turning off. A muscle is designed to absorb force, if it can’t absorb force, it’s going to translate into the joint and it’s going to cause inflammation so that’s where the pain cycle starts. If we can get to the neurological problem, that’s where we found the key… we can unravel everything.” The Who’s Who list of professional athletes Conway has treated includes more than three-dozen professional athletes, including Reggie White, Jerome Bettis, Cris Carter, Deion Sanders, Kordell Stewart, Shannon Sharpe, Ray Lewis, Jamal Lewis and Elvis Grbac to tour from August 2012 until February 2013, and dropped down as far as 166th after her comeback began with a 3-7 record. Her ranking was still too low last month to get directly into the U.S. Open’s main draw, but another player’s

“I really respect him as a person and as an athlete.” In addition to treating athletes from around the world, Conway is a bit of a matchmaker, although he would disagree. “He actually was responsible for introducing us,” Sands said, speaking of how she and her husband met. Justin Sands was being treated for injuries that occurred while playing football at the University of Albany. “I think I was 19-years-old

and Bethanie was 17,” Justin said. “He’s our mentor, our second dad, our best friend, he’s everything.” Conway was on-hand for this year’s Open, leaving Kingston a few days before the event began in New York City. Mattek-Sands played Mathilde Johansson in the first round, taking her out of the tournament 6-3, 6-1. Sands fell in the second round, losing to the No.24 seed, Ekaterina Makarova 6-4, 6-4 last week.

“I started taking OPC Factor and approximately a week after, I went back and had my blood checked. My blood sugar had dropped from about a 180 down to a 112. I had been having back problems and it seemed to resolve that. I like the taste. The taste is very pleasant. It has helped my overall health. The thing that I’ve noticed the most is the lack of back pain. I’ve just felt good this past year,” rejoices Doyle Allen, ID.

“After 2 weeks my blood sugar went from 180 to 112 and stayed there!”

Frontier, unions agree to pacts
Frontier Communications Corp. has received two contract ratifications with the Communications Workers of America locals representing about 200 Frontier employees in Pennsylvania, many in Dallas Township. Union-represented employees in Frontier’s Pennsylvania operations ratified one agreement on Aug. 8 and another on Aug. 19. The company and union bargaining committees worked together to address issues that were priorities for both parties: the intense competition in the telecommunications business, the challenging economic times and the importance of hiring and retaining the best employees with competitive wages and benefits, according to a Frontier corporate release. The ratified contracts expire in November 2016.

Motel 6 breaks ground in W-B Twp.
WILKES-BARRE TWP. — Ground has been broken on a Motel 6 construction project along Schechter Drive, and the national chain says the motel is expected to open by May. Another Motel 6 is slated for Allentown and it, too, has a May opening date affixed to it. The projects are the first new-construction Motel 6 locations in the northeastern United States set to feature the brand’s award-winning “Phoenix” design. The projects are both franchise developments. “Our latest projects in Allentown and Wilkes-Barre represent the execution of our accelerated franchise growth strategy which includes expansion in the northeast,” said Dean Savas, senior vice president of franchise for Motel 6. “We are proud to work with our franchise partners to bring Motel 6’s new design to Pennsylvania.” The Wilkes-Barre project is owned by Bipin Patel of Hotel Squared LLC in Winchester, Va., and the lead contractor is A. Pickett Construction Inc. of Kingston. The new Motel 6 will include 78 guest rooms. Patel and Hotel Squared LLC operate seven existing Motel 6 properties located in West Virginia, Virginia and Maryland. Efforts to reach Patel were unsuccessful. These will be the 16th and 17th Motel 6 locations in Pennsylvania. The ones nearest to Wilkes-Barre are in the Harrisburg area. The Luzerne County location is within one half-mile of two existing hotels: the Hampton Inn at 876 Schechter Drive and the Hilton Garden Inn at 242 Highland Park Blvd. And only a few miles away, along state Route 315 in Plains Township, two other hotels are under construction. A $50 million seven-story hotel and convention center at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in Plains Township is less than two months from completion and a Microtel Inn & Suites is being built as well.

Dollar Menu due for price change

Auto sales rise by double digits
AP Auto Writers

McDonald’s Corp. says a revamped version of its Dollar Menu that includes items priced at $5 could be launched nationally this year. The world’s biggest hamburger chain says it has been testing versions of its famous value menu that’s called “Dollar Menu & More” in five markets across the country. The company noted that no official changes have yet been made to its current Dollar Menu, which was introduced more than a decade ago. The change would come after McDonald’s unsuccessful attempt last year to get customers to switch from the Dollar Menu to a pricier “Extra Value Menu,” which features items costing closer to $2. If the new Dollar Menu & More is rolled out, the Extra Value Menu would be retired, said Neil Golden, chief marketing officer for McDonald’s, which is based in Oak Brook, Ill.

Global summit starts, growth up

Something unfamiliar will be in the background as world leaders hold a summit in Russia starting today: economic growth throughout the developed world. And something will be missing: worry about a renewed financial crisis. Leaders from 20 of the largest economies are more confident about their banking systems than at any other time since they began meeting five years ago. What’s more, the economies of the United States, Europe and Japan are finally growing simultaneously. Yet fears are rising about emerging nations, which have helped drive the global economy for years: Growth is slowing, investor money is leaving and borrowing costs are rising, in part because of higher interest rates in the United States.

New name, location for Mexican restaurant

DETROIT — Toyota, Ford, Nissan, Chrysler and General Motors all posted double-digit U.S. sales gains last month as people snapped up pickup trucks and small cars to lead the industry toward its best month in six years. Toyota posted the biggest gain, with sales up nearly 23 percent over August of last year. Nissan sales were up 22 percent, the best August in company history. At General Motors, sales were up almost 15 percent for the company’s best month since September 2008. Chrysler and Ford each reported 12 percent gains. Auto stocks rose, with Ford and GM up more than 3 percent. U.S.-traded shares of the Japanese automakers all rose more than 1 percent. Chrysler and GM each forecast that total U.S.

sales in August ran at an annual rate above 16 million, a pace not seen since November 2007, a month before the start of the Great Recession. Mustafa Mohatarem, GM’s chief economist, predicted that rate of sales is here to stay. History, he said, shows auto sales follow a trend, and that trend is now back above pre-recession levels. “With the underlying economy fairly solid and with the still very high average age of the fleet, I have full expectations that we will continue to see a fairly steady industry,” Mohatarem said. The average age of a vehicle on U.S. roads today is a record 11.4 years, according to the Polk research firm. That means more people have to replace cars and trucks that they kept through the recession. While GM didn’t officially raise its sales forecast for the year from 15.5 million, Mohatarem

Scott Garberding, senior vice president of manufacturing for Chrysler Group LLC, marks a milestone earlier this summer in sales of the automakers’ Grand Cherokee SUV; the company reported its sales of the vehicle last month were up 40 percent.

said he expects the year to end with sales closer to 15.8 million vehicles. Also, the industry is on better footing than it was in 2007. Prices are high and automakers aren’t resort-

ing to huge discounts to pull customers into showrooms, Mohatarem said. Consumers are spending at record levels to buy loaded-up vehicles, according to the TrueCar.

com auto pricing web site. The average U.S. vehicle sold for an estimated $31,252 last month, up almost $1,000 over August of last year and $24 higher than the previ-

ous record in December of 2012. Five automakers, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Nissan and Volkswagen, all had record-high selling prices last month, according to TrueCar.

WILKES-BARRE — A downtown Wilkes-Barre Mexican restaurant has closed its doors and posted a sign informing customers it will soon reopen at another location. Paola Mendez and her husband, Jerry Ruiz, opened their eatery in September 2011 at North Main and Union streets. Dubbed El Rincon Latino, the name translates to “The Latin Corner.” But the restaurant’s signs were removed recently

and a note on the door informs customers it will reopen in two to three weeks at 21 Public Square. That spot formerly was occupied by European Bistro, which itself closed earlier this year. The restaurant will also get a new name, since it’s not on a corner any longer. The new restaurant will be called “El Zocalo Mexican Restaurant.” Translated, that means “The Meeting Place.” Mendez had restaurant experience before opening El Rincon. She worked at La Tolteca in

Wilkes-Barre. That’s where she met Ruiz, who was one of the restaurant’s managers. Mendez left the restaurant business to raise their son, Sebastian, but eventually the restaurant bug bit her once more. Since El Rincon opened Mendez has had a second child. The building at 21 Public Square is 1,700 square feet, according to Rob Finlay, who manages Humford Equities, the building’s owner. He said he is excited to see another ethnic restaurant coming to one of his buildings in downtown

Wilkes-Barre. Humford already owns the buildings occupied by Katana, Thai Thai and Cafe Toscana. Other restaurants also opened in downtown in recent years including Letts Eat, which serves Indian cuisine, and King of King Gyros, which serves Greek and Mediterranean fare. Finlay said a five-year lease was signed with Mendez and Ruiz and the owners have been paying rent since June, even though they haven’t opened yet. He said a lot of interior work was needed, including a special-

ly fabricated metal hood to help with cooking exhaust. He said that while he can’t guarantee the two-to-three-week opening promise will be kept, he believes it’s possible. “If anyone can do it, they can,” Finlay said. The building that had operated as El Rincon is owned by Thom Greco. There was no word on whether Greco has another tenant lined up for that location, which has seen quite a few restaurants open and close over the past several years.

Tread lightly, lovingly when a loved one’s pet dies
Akron Beacon Journal


Three little letters can mean a lot in college life. But the choice to join a fraternity or sorority is still fraught.

Going Greek?
Students consider the pros and cons of sorority, fraternity life
When Brandon Locke began his college career at Robert Morris University, he quickly found a campus family: Alpha Chi Rho fraternity, one of five men’s frats at the Moon campus. “Being in a fraternity is just like having a home away from home, and always having people there you can count on,” says Locke, 21. He is the vice president of Robert Morris’ Interfraternity Council. KELLIE B. GORMLY “It’s much more than … letters. It’s a brotherhood, is how I see it.” One of the things that Locke, whose hometown is North Huntingdon, and his brothers explain to incoming freshmen is that today’s Greeks, unlike the “Animal House” image, is “not what you see and know of stereotypical Greek life back in the day.” With the start of a new school year, many young men and women entering college are considering rushing to join a sorority or fraternity. Joining a Greek organization is a big decision, though, and the Greek life, while offering many benefits, isn’t for everyone, experts and members say. “When looking at Greek life, there are pros and cons,” says college admissions expert Katherine Cohen, chief executive officer and founder of IvyWise, a New York City-based educational consulting company. “When we’re counseling students, we advise them to look at everything before going down that road.” Membership in a sorority or fraternity offers many benefits, Cohen says. Students can form deep connections that last beyond college and join alumni networks that can be beneficial when looking for a job. Greek organizations provide many volunteer opportunities through each chapter’s philanthropy charity work. The clubs offer leadership opportunities that seem to have paid off for many: 85 percent of key executives at Fortune 500 companies are fraternity and sorority members. “There is something to be said for that,” Cohen says. favor of less conventional honeymoon options. “There are a lot of people taking road trips, or taking the train, or doing a staycation, or doing a more scaled-down version,” says Meg Keene, publisher and executive editor of A Practical Wedding website, apracticalwedding.com, and author of a guidebook of the same name. There’s even a word for the smaller, simpler options: minimoons. Part of the story is the economy, Keene says. Newlyweds in their early and mid-20s have been hit hard by unemployment and underemployment, and big-ticket items like international airfare and luxury hotels may not fit their budgets. But fans of the alternative honeymoon see other advantages as well: the chance to connect with your new spouse without major distractions (the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame),

“You can always find something to do and someone to do it with. You’re likely to find some lifelong friends. Greek groups make the campus a little bit smaller so it’s not so overwhelming. It’s a way to feel like you have a home and an anchor.”

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

— Alexandra Robbins, Author of the best-seller “Pledged: The Secret Life of Sororities”

Grief is keen mental suffering or distress over affliction or loss; sharp sorrow; painful regret, according to dictionary.com. In my circle of friends, there is almost always someone who is grieving over the death of a well-loved pet. Indeed, most of us have lost at least one dog, cat, hamster or guinea pig that we have been inordinately attached to. Just this year, as many as five of my friends have had a cat or dog pass over the Rainbow Bridge. And each one asks: “How do I cope with losing my best friend, one that has been with me through thick and thin? One who loves me even when I can’t stand myself?” Remember that someone who has never had a animal/human relationship won’t understand your pain. Don’t allow them to diminish your grief. Statements such as “It’s only a cat” or “You can get another one” only make you feel more lonely. Mental health experts understand that your grief is your own and no one else can tell you how to feel. The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine advises that when a person has little or no support to deal with the loss of a pet, the grief and mourning can feel overwhelming and isolating. “The human-animal bond represents the types of relationships we have with our companion animals. We form these relationships for many reasons: physical, social, emotional and psychological,” according to a report from the school’s Specialty Care Services titled “Pet Loss and Bereavement Information for Pet Owners.” One of my friends recently lost her companion of 10 years. She wrote about Jake’s death on a blog, giving all her friends and associates in animal rescue the opportunity to express their sorrow for her loss. Another friend told me she received more sympathy cards after her beloved Labrador retriever, Caleb, died than she did after her mother’s death. Perhaps as a group we are more fortunate than most to have the support of friends who share an understanding of the depth of feeling we have for our pets when that bond is broken. So what does the average person do? Authors Lawrence Robinson, Jeanne Segal, Ph.D., and See PET | 2C

However, Greek membership isn’t the only way to make friends and build a network: You can do that elsewhere in the college community and beyond, says Cohen, who did not join a sorority during her years at Brown University. She was involved with See GREEK | 2C

Honeymoons turning into more modern ‘mini’moons
Chicago Tribune


After months of wedding preparation, the last thing Beth and Rob Puno wanted to do was to plan an elaborate overseas honeymoon. So they didn’t. “My husband and I threw our bikes onto the bike rack on the car and drove up the California coast from the Bay Area to Mendocino,” says Beth Puno, 30, of Berkeley. They stayed at a bed and breakfast, packed their lunches and explored by bike for five or six hours a day. “It was perfect,” Puno says. “We just got to exalt in that feeling of love, and we got to relax, and we got to explore some really beautiful redwood forests, just the two of us. It was so quiet and peaceful, I couldn’t believe it.” The Punos aren’t the only ones rejecting tropical getaways and European tours in

“Just because when someone says ‘honeymoon’ most people think of their toes in the sand and a drink in their hand, doesn’t mean you have to book a tropical vacation.”

— Megan Finley, Offbeat Empire associate publisher book a tropical vacation. Unless you and your partner love the ocean, surfing, snorkeling and sunbathing! Then the tropics are the way to go,” Finley said in an email interview. “But never because ‘that’s just how it’s done.’” Among the real-life alternative honeymoons that Finley cites is one inspired by the New Orleans episode of “Man v. Food.” A foodie couple honeymooned in New Orleans, where they sampled the city’s storied restaurants. Finley also points to a pair of history buffs who delayed their honeymoon so it overlapped

the lack of stress and planning at a time when you’ve probably had your fill of both, and the opportunity to carve out a unique adventure that truly reflects your tastes and interests as a couple. At the website Offbeat Bride ( offbeatbride. com), Offbeat Empire associate publisher Megan Finley sees the alternative honeymoon as a reflection of a larger willingness to question wedding conventions. “Just because when someone says ‘honeymoon’ most people think of their toes in the sand and a drink in their hand, doesn’t mean you have to

with the anniversary of D-Day, and then took a self-guided tour of France, and a Texas-based couple who went to Reykjavik, Iceland, for their honeymoon because they wanted to go somewhere they had never been before. Enticed by cheap winter airfares, they decided to “experience what a real winter feels like.” There was also a philanthropic couple who bought a week at a safari lodge in South Africa from a nonprofit auction, and a couple who rented a camper and spent three weeks visiting as many state parks as possible. Keene says she wishes more people would take alternative honeymoons. But she does have one caution: When it comes to honeymoons, timing counts. “I always advise people, it doesn’t matter where you go, just go somewhere for a couple of days (immediately after the wedding) or stay at home and unplug the phone, because

what’s important about the honeymoon is the time period when it takes place,” she says. “Have a little bit of time to absorb what happened and emotionally process what happened.” Keene, who dated her husband for five years, says she was surprised at how much she treasured time alone with him during their honeymoon in Britain. Even an evening with a British relative, while wonderful, seemed like more of an interruption than she would have expected. Puno’s honeymoon was similarly emotionally intense. “I was in a daze after the wedding, and it took those five days to just kind of calm down, let everything sink in, to understand what really happened,” she says. “I’m going to remember (my honeymoon) forever, even though it was a really humble, simple experience.”

Elena Marie Habersky, Dallas, was among 25 members of The University of Scranton’s Class of 2013 to graduate from the university’s Honors Program. Habersky also participated in the Special Jesuit Liberal Arts Honors Program, placing her among the Habersky select few students able to graduate from two honors programs. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree, magna cum laude, in international studies, with minors in philosophy, Arabic and theology, and a concentration in peace and justice studies. She received the Excellence in International Studies Award at graduation. Habersky’s research project, “The Fate of Egypt’s Coptic Christians as a Result of the Arab Spring,” examined the security and freedom of Egypt’s Christian minority following the fall of President Mubarak. She was mentored by William J. Parente, a professor of political science at the university. Habersky was among the five members of the university’s Class of 2013 selected for Fulbright U.S. Student Program awards. She earned a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship to Jordan. Habersky is a member of Alpha Lambda Delta, Alpha Mu Gamma, Phi Alpha Theta, Theta Alpha Kappa and Alpha Sigma Nu. She was also named to “Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.” Habersky was a member of the Justice Club, United Students for Fair Trade, the Royal Historical Society, Scranton Emerging Leaders I and II, and a staff writer for the student newspaper. Habersky studied abroad in Ecuador, Jordan and Egypt, where she taught English and had a summer internship at Better World, NGO. She was awarded the Provost Grant to study Christianity in Uganda and the Magis and World Youth Day in Madrid, Spain. Habersky is a graduate of Dallas High School.

LCCC nursing students hold health fair
Luzerne County Community College nursing students recently held a health fair at the college’s kiosk at the Wyoming Valley Mall. The students performed free blood pressure screenings and provided information on nutrition and skin cancer prevention. At the fair, from left, first row: Amanda Szychowski, Plains Township; Stephanie Flynn, Wilkes-Barre; Karen Noss, registered nurse and associate professor, nursing, LCCC; Dana Hupczey, Hazleton; and Alysia Uliano, Hazleton.

Although many people think Greeks have the best or the only good social life among a student population, Cohen says she didn’t feel second-rate because she was not in a sorority. “There are so many alternatives to Greek life where you can find smaller communities within a community,” she says. And if you can’t find a club you like, you can found one, Cohen says. Greek life does have its downside. Membership in a fraternity or sorority takes a big commitment of both time and money. It’s not just membership dues; there are other costs, such as money for functions, formals, possible residency in a house, and the like. And with constant social events, some people may have a difficult time keeping up with their college workload. Alexandra Robbins — author of the best-seller “Pledged: The Secret Life of Sororities” — agrees. She spent a year undercover at a university following some sorority members and observed and heard about many positives, but also unhealthy things such as excessive binge drinking, hazing and intense pressure to conform and fit the group’s mold. The good thing sororities offer, Robbins says, is a “ready-made social calendar.” “You can always find something to do and someone to do it with,” she says. “You’re likely to find some lifelong friends. Greek groups make the campus a little bit smaller so it’s not so overwhelming. It’s a way to feel like you have a home and an anchor.” Still, prospective recruits for Greek life should do their research and look at the big picture, Robbins says. Membership in some organizations can be allconsuming and leave little time and money for anything else. Members in some groups must follow rules, such as dress codes. “A lot of people go into these groups thinking they’re just social groups,” she says. “They don’t realize until it’s too late that sororities and fraternities often try to control your life and identity — much more than just your social calendar.” Scott Irlbacher, Robert Morris’ director of special programs and student community standards, has observed many benefits of sorority and fraternity membership at the school. Greek students are less likely to go home on weekends, and they have higher GPAs and graduation rates — 21 percentage points higher than the general population — at Robert Morris, where about 9 percent of students are Greek. Though Greek life may not be for everyone, Irlbacher says, any students with an interest should check it out, even though they risk rejection. They may find their home away from home. “Every group has its own personality,” Irlbacher says. “It’s a matter of finding that fit.”

From page 1C Robert Segal writing for Helpguide.org, a nonprofit resource for supporting better mental health, offer this advice: • Don’t let anyone tell you how to feel and don’t tell yourself how you should feel. • Reach out to others who have lost pets. Check online message boards, pet loss hotlines and pet loss support groups. • Rituals can help healing. A funeral can help you and your family members openly express feelings. • Look after yourself. The stress of losing a pet can quickly deplete your energy and emotional reserves. Eat healthy foods, get lots of sleep and exercise to release endorphins to lift your mood. The loss of a companion animal may be doubly debilitating for seniors. If you are or know someone mourning the death of a pet he or she could try these methods for getting past the grief: • Try to find new meaning and joy in life. Fill the time you would normally give your pet with volunteering, picking up a long-neglected hobby, taking a class or helping friends care for their pets. • Stay connected with friends. Pets often help seniors meet new people and regularly connect with friends and neighbors on walks. Try to spend time with at least one person every day to help ward off depression. • Boost vitality with exercise. Staying active can help boost the immune system and increase energy. Finally, is it always a good idea to immediately go out and get a new pet after the loss of a well-loved one? Well, as much as I love saying “Puppies heal the heart,” the answer is a personal one that only you can make for yourself. In most cases, it’s best to mourn the old pet first, and wait until you’re emotionally ready to open your heart to a new animal.

Lopez,Connick,Urban latest‘American Idol’judges
AP Television Writer


LOS ANGELES — “American Idol” is betting that a judges’ remix with Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban will fare better with viewers than bickering divas Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj did last season. On Tuesday, Fox announced the rumored addition of Lopez and Connick as judges for season 13. They’ll join Urban to make up the talent show’s first panel consisting solely of singers — a la NBC’s successful 2011 upstart “The Voice.” Pop star and actress Lopez will be back on “American Idol” after a

two-season run as judge in 2011 and 2012 that was a boon for the show and her c a re e r. Connick, a respected jazz singer and musician, proved adept as a mentor Jennifer Lopez in several “Idol” appearances. Urban’s return to the contest was announced last month by Fox Chairman Kevin Reilly, who said the singer didn’t get a chance to show his personality in his first turn as a judge. Urban appeared overwhelmed last season by the Carey-Minaj crossfire that drew complaints from

some viewers. “I think this season of ‘Idol’ is gonna be a blast,” Urba n said in a statement Tuesday. “ N e w t e a m , new energy and a whole Harry Connick Jr. new field of artists to be discovered and given a chance!” Fox also announced that original judge Randy Jackson, who exited along with Carey and Minaj at the end of last season, will be back in a new role as inhouse mentor to the contestants. Ryan Seacrest, also part of “Idol” from the start, will again host.

“Sur-prise, surprise! I am so happy to be back as part of this amazing show that started it all,” Jackson s a i d . “ T h e original talent show is back with Keith Urban a vengeance and ready to discover the best talent in America.” Record executive Jimmy Iovine had served as mentor in recent seasons. Fox said that Universal Music Group’s Interscope Records, under Iovine’s direction as chairman, will continue to release “Idol” winner and contestant music.

Although judges have been a part of the show’s entertainment formula since the early antics of Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul, “Idol” also won viewers by discovering future stars including Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson. But recent winners haven’t caught similar fire as recording artists. Seacrest, also set to host NBC’s new “The Million Second Quiz,” said that early “Idol” auditions have cemented his belief “that a new superstar is within our sights.” Tryouts are ahead in Atlanta; Austin, Texas; Boston; Detroit; Omaha, Neb.; Salt Lake City and San Francisco. “American Idol” returns in January.

New PBS team low key about milestone
NEW YORK (AP) — Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff didn't think much about the milestone upon being appointed the first women to co-anchor a national daily news program on television — until flowers began filling their offices and strangers offered congratulations. The veteran journalists are the regular co-hosts of PBS' "NewsHour," effective Monday. They will be the faces for a newscast known for many years as the home of founders Jim Lehrer and Robert MacNeil. Two days earlier, PBS will premiere a new weekend edition of "NewsHour," based in New York instead of Washington. Hari Sreenivasan will be the host. In 2006, Katie Couric at the "CBS Evening News" became the first woman to solely anchor a national newscast. Ifill said she was surprised by how many people made a big deal of two women anchors when PBS announced the change in early August. "I'm very touched by that," she said. "I'm most touched by young women who stop me on the street and tell me how happy they are about this. I'm amazed at the investment people have in this." Following Lehrer's retirement two years ago, Ifill and Woodruff were part of a five-person anchor rotation with Jeffrey Brown, Ray Suarez and Margaret Warner. Two of the five anchored each night, depending on their schedules. There was nothing wrong with it, said the show's executive producer, Linda Winslow. But she came to conclude that a regular team makes for a sharper identity; people are more likely to say they watch Brian Williams instead of the NBC "Nightly News," for example. The new anchors have lengthy Washington resumes. Woodruff, 66, was a White House correspondent for NBC News during the Carter administration and has two stints at PBS with 12 years at CNN in between. Ifill, 57, started in print, working at The Washington Post and The New York Times, before joining NBC News and then PBS in 1999. Ifill hosts "Washington Week," meaning Woodruff will fly solo on the "NewsHour" on Fridays. Both say they share sensibilities and news instincts. "She's exactly the kind of person you'd want to have by your side if there's a big, breaking story," Woodruff said of her partner. "You want to be beside someone you can trust, whose judgment you can trust." Winslow said it seemed to be the combination that clicked. The women think alike, but have distinct styles. During interviews, Ifill is more conversational, Woodruff more questioning. "She's leaning forward and Gwen is more inviting you to come forward," she said. "NewsHour" anchors have often seemed more like solo artists than a team. Winslow said there will be an effort to have Ifill and Woodruff appear on-screen together more and interact. The show helped draw attention to the pairing when Ifill and Woodruff interviewed President Barack Obama last week, with the poison gas attack in Syria the chief topic.

Single mother rips older workers for staying on the job for too long
Dear Abby: I am appalled at older workers who hang onto their jobs so they can live lavish lifestyles, while young workers trying to support families are left with lack of advancement or even laid off because they don’t have tenure. I am a single mom, and when my sons are out of college I plan to take a less stressful job (and thus less pay), so a younger person can have my job to support a family. In the past, there was more of a sense of social responsibility. Now it’s every man for himself and hang everyone else! — Disgusted in Columbus, Ohio Dear Disgusted: Many older people

work longer these days not to live lavish lifestyles, but to survive. It’s presumptuous to say someone should retire. Many seniors are unprepared financially to do so through no fault of their own. And while you may think now that you’ll take a reduction in pay when your sons are out of college, it remains to be seen if that will be feasible when the time comes. Dear Abby: My cousin died a short time ago at a very young age and in an unnatural and devastating way. As soon as people outside the family started finding out, they began asking

what happened. Many of these questions were posted on my relatives’ Facebook pages. Isn’t that a very insensitive thing to do? It’s not just that they are asking questions of a grieving family who lost their son only hours before, but that they did it through Facebook. — Mourning in the Midwest Dear Mourning: Please accept my sympathy for your family’s tragic loss. We live in an age in which respect for privacy has nearly disappeared, and folks routinely bare intimate and sensitive details about their lives on the Internet. Of course questions like the ones your relatives are being asked are tasteless — whether in person or via electronic media. If a person wishes to convey this kind of information,

it is usually done VOLUNTARILY. Dear Abby: Too often we hear horrifying stories in the news about prescription drug addiction and overdoses. I’d like to offer hope to addicts who are still using. There IS life after drugs. For 10 years I was addicted to pain pills. I finally hit rock bottom and went into rehab when I realized my daughter was pulling away from me. I had been spending our rent money on pills I’d buy on the streets. After I was sober for a few days, I realized I liked the feeling. After the sixth day, I was “me” again, and I loved it. I have been sober for two years and am now entering school to become a patient tech. It’s exciting because I will be helping others. I be-

lieve this is what I was meant to do. Everyone keeps saying I should tell my story, but to be honest, my story isn’t finished yet. Thank you for letting me share. — Enjoying Sobriety in Florida Dear Enjoying Sobriety: You’re welcome. You’re right that your story isn’t over yet, but from where I’m sitting it looks like the next chapter will be a happy and constructive one. I wish you success in your journey.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your sign mate Thomas Jefferson had it absolutely right when he said, “In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.” TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will return to the role of student with a long list of fresh questions. The more you learn the more you appreciate the endless loop that is the learning process. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). For you, the glory has never been in riding on your high horse; rather, it’s in getting back on the horse after you’ve been knocked off. Today you’re something of a comeback kid. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will politely listen to the advice and philosophy of admired teachers, even though you may not be able to relate to it as of yet. The ideas will apply when you find evidence of their truth in your own life. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sleep is an important part of any mammal’s life. Don’t lie awake worrying about tomorrow when you should be asleep. Instead, outline the plan that will assuage your worries. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your request for excellence will only be understood and acted upon if you also put it in writing. There’s something about ink and paper that makes it so. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll give a gift. The presentation will be crucial to its reception. Some items are so perfect, they shouldn’t be packaged with other items that might dilute the value. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You appreciate your family, but that doesn’t mean you need every member around you at all times. You’ll call on your kin as needed. Set boundaries to instate the policy. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Submitting to the judgment of others is a kind of agreement you don’t want to get into. When your friends get “judgy,” it’s time to pull back and assert your independence. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You understand what you’re dealing with much better than anyone else does. What can you do to shed light on the matter so the others can see it, too? AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your instructions will be helpful in solving a mystery. You won’t spell out the answer, but you’ll tell people where they should look for the clues. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s exciting when a natural phenomenon unfolds before you. You’ll enjoy watching one of life’s stranger processes in detail. Paying attention is its own reward. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 5). You won’t be so easily pleased, and because of this an inner fire ignites. Ordinary marks of progress won’t satisfy you. You won’t stop until you’ve achieved what no one else has. Love in abundance will support you. Your professional status rises in November. There’s a financial reward in October and January. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 24, 11, 7 and 14.
