PITTSTON TWP. – For the
first time since 2008, 16 non-
unionized employees at the
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Inter-
national Airport will be getting
raises.
When the bi-county board
that oversees
the airport
met Thurs-
day, it decid-
ed to adopt
its 2012 bud-
get. Airport
Director Bar-
ry J. Centini
requested
raises of 3 to
4 percent for
the manage-
ment and
other non-
union staff.
Centini said the raises will
amount to a total of $34,700
this year. He notedthe airport’s
30 unionized workers have
been getting annual raises of
between 1 and 3 percent each
year since 2008.
The budget, along with the
raises, were approved by a 5-1
vote with Luzerne County
Manager Robert Lawton the
lone dissenter.
Lawton, attending his first
meeting since being hired last
month to the new position,
said he was fine with the bud-
get overall but was casting a
vote against approving it based
solely on the pay raises.
He noted Luzerne County

Luzerne County taxpayers owe $14.4 million to the
employee pension fund this year because $6.1million
of last year’s subsidy was never paid.
If the 2011contribution isn’t turned over soon, pen-
sion-fund holdings must be liquidated to free up cash
to cover expenses, county pension adviser Richard J.
Hazzouri said during Thursday’s retirement board
meeting.
That optionis frowneduponbecausethefundloses
potential investment return on the forced-sale assets.
Pension subsidies have been a contentious topic
since county taxpayers started shoring up the fund in
2002. Stabilizing was necessary because employee
contributions and investment returns haven’t kept
pace with guaranteed payouts
to present and future retirees.
Previous payments
The taxpayer subsidy was
$3.4 million in 2008, $8.4 mil-
lion in 2009 and $9 million in
2010.
About $1millionof last year’s
$7.1 million contribution was
paid, and the 2012 contribution
has been conservatively esti-
mated at $8.3 million by an ac-
tuary.
NewcountyInterimBudget/
Finance Chief Vic Mazziotti,
who sits on the board, said he
was not aware $6.1 million was
owed fromlast year and will re-
search the matter.
Mazziotti said the county is
facing cash-flow issues. Prior
commissioners had secured a
$17 million tax anticipation to
help until property tax pay-
ments – the primary revenue
stream – flow in, but tax bills
were issued late because of delays in approving the
amended county budget, he said.
He’d like to get the county on a schedule of paying
pension subsidies in the current year, which is the
normin many other counties.
County retirement coordinator Rick Hummer said
the county has gradually delayed paying the pension
subsidyinrecent years. Threeyearsago, theprior-year
subsidy was paid the second week of January. Last
year the payment wasn’t releaseduntil the endof Feb-
ruary, he said.

WILKES-BARRE – Boscov’s De-
partment Store – the anchor to a
downtown still struggling to return to
greatness – has seen the most rapid in-
crease in sales in the 40-store chain so
far in 2012.
And the company’s patriarch – Al
Boscov – said the center city store will
soon get a facelift.
“We’re working on ideas for remod-
eling,” Boscov said from his Reading
office. “We’ve been cleaning it up, but
the store is oldenoughthat it needs re-
modeling. The store needs some help,
and we’re going to do that.”
Boscov said the company has been
remodeling stores gradually over the
years. He noted the Hazleton area
store in the Laurel Mall was remod-
eled just a couple of years ago.
In 2012, Boscov’s Wilkes-Barre has
seen a 14.9 percent increase in sales –
the top growth rate in the chain.
“Sales are up 6.2 percent on average
for all our stores,” Boscov said. “And

Officials at the nuclear power
plant near Berwick disagree with
criticism members of the public lev-
eled at the plant at a public meeting
on Wednesday.
Eric Epstein,
president of nucle-
ar watchdog group
Three Mile Island
Watch, mostly crit-
icized the Nuclear
Regulatory Com-
mission for not do-
ing more to deter
PPL from committing safety viola-
tions at its Susquehanna Steam
Electric Station in Salem Township.
He advocated harsher punishments
such as hefty fines or more frequent
maintenance shutdowns.
But Epstein did question whether
PPL could have avoided some vio-
lations altogether if the company
wasn’t “flying solo” when it came to
sharing best-practice information
with other plants in the nuclear in-
dustry.
Barbara DeRonde, who owns land
adjacent to the power plant, said she
recently walked close to the cooling
towers with a group of people.
“I said, ‘How do you like this?
This is PPL’s level of security.’ I
couldn’t believe it. I live 45 miles
north of Indian Point (nuclear pow-
er plant in New York). It’s got its
issues, but at least security is better.
If I had a rocket launcher, I could do
some damage, perhaps, to those
concrete walls,” she said.

UNION TWP. – The cost of
cyber school and the need to
change the way it is offeredtodis-
trict students drew extensive
comment at Wednesday night’s
meeting of the Northwest Area
School Board.
Superintendent Ron
Grevera said he is re-
searching the possibility
of Northwest offering its
own cyber program.
During the public com-
ment segment of the ses-
sion, Grevera said in re-
sponse to questioning,
“We have lots of problems
with cyber programs.”
One of the biggest is that while
Northwest received 80 percent
reimbursement in the past, “of
late we’re getting zero.”
Randy Tomasacci, board presi-
dent, also said, “We’re getting
killed by cyber-school costs.”
In the summary of accounts
payable for March, the board ap-
proved a $39,195.39 payment to
Agora Cyber Charter School and
$7,607.40 to PA. Cyber Charter
School.
Albert Melone, financial con-
sultant, said these are monthly
charges. Overall, he estimated
that cyber school is costing the
district $400,000 annually.
Grevera said he has been in
communication with the Seneca
Valley School District, which has
its own cyber program, is at-
tempting to model a program for
Northwest after that being uti-
lized by Seneca.
Tomasacci also commented
that theboardmet inex-
ecutivesessionWednes-
day to discuss on-going
contract negotiations
with the Northwest Ar-
ea Education Associ-
ation.
The contract expires
at the endof the present
term.
Tomasacci would on-
lysaythat “offers havebeengoing
back forth.”
Some issues, involved a union
grievance and personnel matters,
Tomasacci said.
Theboardalsoacceptedbids of
$3,500fromJeremyKishbaughto
do excavation work for a parking
lot project at the primary school
and $11,865 from GSC Concrete
to install newsidewalks at the en-
trances to the high school gym.
Inpersonnel matters, theboard
approvedthehiringof JodyZelin-
ski and as a grade seven-to-12 En-
glishteacher; Mitchell Briggs as a
grades seven-to-12 citizenship
teacher; accepted a retirement
letter submitted by Jennifer
Wolfe, secretary to superintend-
ent, and letters of retirement
from Mary Jean Bau and Marian
Boyer.
It also heard a report by repre-
sentatives of The Nutrition
Group of Danville and Irwin, Pa.,
that conducts cafeteria services
for the district, that government-
mandated nutrition programs
could escalate costs for the 2012-
13 termby $40,434.
In addition, if the board adopts
these rates, individual costs
would rise to $1.80 for breakfast
and $2.10 for lunch.
The mandates, they said, en-
compass the offering of more
fruits and vegetables, along with
low-fat milk.
Melone stated he is going to
recommend to the board that it
act favorably upon a bond refi-
nancingprogramoutlinedbyDan
Payne of PNC Bank, in which
Payne projected that current
rates inthe bondmarket couldre-
sult in a $94,000 savings for the
district.

NANTICOKE – City Council
on Wednesday night approved
the first reading of ordinance
3-2012, which would establish
permit parking only on areas of
Coal Street, Hill Street and Or-
chard Street.
The permits, which would
be paid for by the council,
would make parking in those
areas available solely to the
residents.
At present, residents of
those streets often have great
difficulty in finding parking
near their homes because of
parking by Luzerne County
Community College culinary
students.
The ordinance will require a
second reading before the final
voting.
In another matter, City Di-
rector of Finance Pam Heard
said the city has received the
last $125,000 reimbursement
from the state Department of
Environmental Protection/
federal Environmental Protec-
tion Agency for the City Hall
HVAC grant.
The city also received a let-
ter from DEP stating that the
city will receive an Act 101 Re-

als recycled.
Heard also said the city has

Oil spill into creek is contained in Exeter
DON CAREY/THE TIMES LEADER
What appeared to be oil illegally dumped in a
storm drain flowed into a portion of Hicks
Creek in Exeter, said state Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection spokeswoman Colleen
Connolly. A contractor Thursday placed ab-
sorbent booms at the point where the creek
flows into the Susquehanna River to contain
the spill. DEP emergency response personnel
were in the area of Steven’s Lane investigating
the dumping. ‘We have not determined who
put it there yet,’ she said. If DEP cannot deter-
mine who is responsible, it will contact the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency for assist-
ance. ‘No homes are being evacuated and
there’s nothing in the air to cause eye irrita-
tion,’ said Connolly.

NUANGOLA – The state De-
partment of Environmental
Protection has given Nuangola
council and its sewer authority
the OK to advance its long-de-
bated sanitary sewer system.
It came in the form of an an-
nouncement late Wednesday af-
ternoon by Colleen Connolly,
public affairs officer at the
Wilkes-Barre office of DEP, that
the environmental agency has
accepted the authority’s revised
Act 537 plan.
The action
follows on the
heels of coun-
cil’s engineering
firm Alfred Ben-
esch of Potts-
ville filing revisions in the plan
that Connolly said were
deemed acceptable by the DEP.
She said DEP also approved a
water quality management per-
mit.
According to comment at re-
cent meetings of council and
the authority, this means
Quad3 Group of Wilkes-Barre,
the authority’s engineer, can be-
gin to solicit contractor bids.
That process, according to
statements by Rich Kresge of
Quad3, was to begin this week.
Plans are to initiate the project
in late May.
In addition, the way may be
cleared to proceed to closing on
a pending $5.4 million loan
fromthe Fulton Bank of Lancas-
ter designed to provide bridge
funding to finance expenses re-
lated to planning, design and
the installation of a pipeline
through Nuangola, Rice Town-
ship and Dorrance Township to
the Mountain Top Area Joint
Sewer Authority treatment
plant off I-81 in Dorrance Town-
ship.
David Pekar, authority chair-
man, said he received a letter
from DEP on Thursday con-
firming acceptance of the plan.
He said although a major issue
has been satisfactorily resolved,
there are still “loose ends” with
PennDOT, Luzerne County and
the Rice Township supervisors
that have to be cleared up.
Regarding finances, Nuango-
la has a $93,000 in-
voice for design
and engineering
work from Quad3
that was submitted
at the March 12
meeting of the sew-
er authority. Payment was ta-
bled, pending finalization of the
loan.
Regina Plodwick, president
of council, issued a statement
alerting residents to an appeal
process through DEP if they are
“aggrieved” by this action. She
said that, in formation obtained
fromDEP, an appeal must be fil-
ed with the environmental hear-
ing board of Harrisburg within
30 days of receiving written no-
tice of the plan’s implementa-
tion.
Appeal forms, Plodwick said,
can be obtained from the hear-
ing board at the Rachel Carson
State Office Building, 400 Mar-
ket St., Box 8457, Harrisburg,
PA 17105-8457.

I-81 fatal victim identified
A man walking along the south-
bound lanes of Interstate 81 was killed
when he was struck by several vehicles
Wednesday night.
The Luzerne County Coroner’s Of-
fice identified him as 52-year-old Dar-
ren Simonson of Plains Township.
Acting Luzerne County Coroner
William Lisman said Simonson was
pronounced dead at the scene at 9:35
p.m., a short distance from the Exit
170B ramp in Plains Township.
State police at Wyoming said Simon-
son was struck by a vehicle and pos-
sibly other vehicles at about 8:35 p.m.
Simonson’s death was ruled an acci-
dent by the coroner’s office.
The southbound lanes of Interstate
81 were closed for more than three
hours before they reopened at 11 p.m.
Anyone who may have witnessed the
incident is asked to call state police at

WILKES-BARRE
Study critiques drilling regs
A study by two Wilkes University
institutes finds Pennsylvania’s new
rules governing the natural gas indus-
try fall short in providing safeguards
and advantages to local governments.
The Institute for Public Policy and
Economic Development and the In-
stitute for Energy and Environmental
Research for Northeast-
ern Pennsylvania jointly
released a 20-page report
that comments on key
provisions of the new
impact-fee law, Act 13.
Weaknesses cited in-
clude provisions that
strip municipalities of land-use plan-
ning and local control, provisions that
give local government an option as to
whether to impose the fee, and to
choose the fee, which caps at 2.5 per-
cent regardless of market price in-
creases.
Other criticisms cited include the
regulations’ failure to establish protec-
tive measures for air pollution control,
pipeline rights of way, and compressor
station isolation distance. The regu-
lations also allow more drilling on state
land and fail to account for impacts to
counties suffering from pipelines, con-
gestion and social dislocations.
Among the strengths noted are pro-
visions that allow counties and munici-
palities to receive revenue to offset
impacts.

WILKES-BARRE – Despite
criticism from several resi-
dents, City Council appointed
Christine Jensen to the city’s
planning commission by a 3-2
vote Thursday night.
In an unexpected develop-
ment, Leonard Cornish was ap-
pointed to the same panel at
the request of Councilman To-
ny George. That vote was 5-0.
George and Maureen Lavelle
voted against Jensen’s appoint-
ment, while Council Chairman
Mike Merritt, Vice Chairman
Bill Barrett and George Brown
voted in favor.
George said Jensen was a
good human
resources di-
rector, but
lacked the ap-
propriate
background
needed to
serve on the
planning
commission. He said Cornish
has the proper background.
Jensen, now the administra-
tor at CareerLink, was not the
choice of several residents.
Frank Sorick, president of the
Wilkes-Barre City Taxpayers
Association, noted that Jensen
“took the heat” for Mayor Tom
Leighton last summer when it
was learned that she was the
one who hired Leighton’s
daughter, niece and nephew to
summer positions.
That action resulted in a
complaint filed with the state
Ethics Commission that would
later clear Leighton. Sorick
said Jensen also hired her
daughter to a city summer job
before she resigned.
“Of course Mayor Leighton
had nothing to do with the hir-
ingof his relatives –he’s just the
mayor,” Sorick said. “Of course
he offered no input or direc-
tion.”

Ethics Commission handbook

Kayden Stowell was born a Penguins
fan.
Literally.
During a Wilkes-Barre/Scranton
Penguins home game in March 2007,
Kayden’s mother, Amanda, went into
labor. The Penguins were playing Her-
shey that night, and Amanda waited
until the end of the
game before heading
to the hospital where
she would give birth
to Kayden the next
day.
“She wanted to see
who won,” said her
husband, Doug.
The family has
since moved from
Mountain Top to Ma-
ryland, but on Thurs-
day they returned to
reunite Kayden with
his Penguin roots.
As part of a visit ar-
ranged by the Make-
A-Wish Foundation,
Kayden, who has
Down syndrome,
spent the morning at
Coal Street watching
the Penguins practice before taking the
ice with several of the players.
After practice, Kayden visited the
Penguins locker room and had the
players sign his jersey before he left to
have lunch with Tux.
He and his family will attend Sat-
urday’s game as guests in the Pen-
guins’ Suite before stopping by the
locker room for a final farewell from
the players.
It’s a dream weekend for a child who
was born a Penguins fan.

WILKES-BARRE– Curiosity about a
country and ruler brought many area
residents out to hear Alina Fernandez,
daughter of former Cuban dictator Fi-
del Castro, speak Thursday night at
Wilkes University.
Fernandez said it was her goal to
raise awareness and encourage people
to “Google” and learn about Cuba.
“Wearesoclose, but still sofar away,”
she said.
Fernandez was a guest speaker in
honor of Women’s History Month,
sponsored by the Northeastern Penn-
sylvania Diver-
sity Education
Consortium
and the Office
of Diversity Ini-
tiatives.
Growing up,
she lived with
her mother, sis-
ter and father.
Her mother fell
in love with
Castro while
corresponding
with him dur-
ing his prison
term before he
rosetopower in
the revolution
that overturned
the govern-
ment in1959.
“Castro would write to his wife and
my mother,” she said. “I don’t know if
the prisoncensors were tiredof reading
his letters, but they got the letters
mixed up.”
One of the first institutions to fall
apart under Castro’s Communist reign
was the family, she said. Accusations of
beingatraitorwereeasilypointedat im-
mediate family members. At this time,
Operation Peter Pan was initiated and
about 14,000 children were sent to live
withAmericanfoster families, she said.
As a young girl, Fernandez remem-
bers the“hairy-faced” people, whowere
the rebels, interrupting her morning
programs. Eventually, Mickey Mouse
andDonaldDuckdisappearedfromTV.
Castro’s power grew and he con-
trolled the phone lines, education, land
and food rations. Religion was abol-
ished.
Fernandezjoinedthedissident move-
ment in 1989. She said that when her
daughter was not allowed to receive an
education, she decided it was time to
leave. In December 1993, she disguised
herself as a Spanish tourist and escap-
ed.

WEST PITTSTON – A homeowner
believes a woman she knows crawled
through a dog door and rummaged
through her house, stealing money
and a credit card, according to charges
filed.
Police charged Mary Butera, 49, of
Susquehanna Avenue, with burglariz-
ing the home of Sharon Noone on
Wyoming Avenue on Jan. 25.
Charges of burglary, theft, receiving
stolen property, criminal trespass and
access device fraud were recently filed
against Butera with District Judge Jo-
seph Carmody in West Pittston.
The charges were mailed to Butera.
According to the criminal com-
plaint:
Noone arrived home on Jan. 25 and
noticed her laptop computer was
moved, drawers open on numerous
cabinets and money missing from a
case.
She told police she believed the bur-
glar entered her house through a dog
door.
Mary Jo Hetro allegedly saw Butera
in front of Noone’s residence when
Noone was away.
Hetro is identified in the complaint
as Noone’s aunt.
Noone said she sent a text message
to Butera asking if she was aware of a
burglary. Butera responded with a
text message, “At least they did not
get your jewelry,” the complaint says.
Noone said she did not tell anyone
what was stolen from her house ex-
cept police.
Noone and Butera exchanged a se-
ries of text messages in which Butera
allegedly stated she would leave
Noone’s items on a porch, according
to the complaint.
Police allege Butera stole Noone’s
credit card, which she used to pur-
chase items at Walmart in Pittston
Township and tried to use at Walmart
in Taylor.
In an unrelated case, Butera is serv-
ing a probation sentence that expires
in April on a retail theft charge, ac-
cording to court records.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled
on April 4.

HARRISBURG
Sandusky: Toss the charges
J
erry Sandusky asked a judge Thurs-
day to throw out the child sex abuse
charges against him, arguing some
counts are not specific enough, evi-
dence is lacking in others and the stat-
ute of limitations may have run out
regarding eight of the 10 alleged vic-
tims.
The catch-all pretrial motion also
sought to delay the May 14 start of his
trial, saying more time was needed to
prepare a defense.
Nils Frederiksen, a spokesman for
the state Attorney General’s Office,
said the document was under review,
and prosecutors planned to respond in
writing within a week.
An April 5 court proceeding in Belle-
fonte has been scheduled to hash out
any remaining disputes.
Sandusky, 68, is confined to his
home in State College while awaiting
trial, and has denied the allegations
against him. He is accused of sexually
abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period,
including sexual assaults.
SANFORD, FLA.
Teen death chief quits
The embattled police chief at the
center of a fatal neighborhood watch
shooting temporarily stepped down
Thursday, saying he had become a
distraction to the investigation.
Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee has
been heavily criticized after his officers
decided not to arrest George Zimmer-
man, a neighborhood watch volunteer
who shot an unarmed black teen to
death on Feb. 26.
The shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon
Martin has sparked several protests,
and city commissioners gave the chief
a “no confidence” vote on Wednesday
night.
Zimmerman claims the shooting was
self-defense.
He told police Martin attacked him
after he had given up on chasing the
teenager and was returning to his SUV.
MOSCOW
Russian criticizes Assad
Syrian President Bashar Assad must
take the first step toward settling his
country’s yearlong conflict by pulling
his forces out of cities and allowing
humanitarian assistance, a senior Rus-
sian lawmaker said Thursday, in a
statement that signaled a marked shift
in Moscow’s stance.
The comments by Mikhail Margelov,
the Kremlin-connected chairman of the
foreign affairs committee in the upper
house of Russian parliament, indicated
Moscow’s increasing impatience with
Assad and its eagerness to raise pres-
sure on an old ally.
GIGLIO, ITALY
5 more bodies found
Search crews found five more bodies
in the wreck of the Costa Concordia
cruise ship, which struck a reef off an
Italian island in January, officials said
Thursday.
The discovery raises to 30 the num-
ber of bodies found.
Two people remain missing and are
presumed dead.
The latest bodies were all found in
spaces between the hull and the seabed
off the Tuscan island of Giglio, accord-
ing to the Italian Civil Protection agen-
cy, which is coordinating search oper-
ations.
Since the Jan. 13 capsizing, the Con-
cordia has been lying on its side, half
submerged in water near Giglio’s port.

WASHINGTON — Rick Santorum is
falling so far behind Mitt Romney in the
race for Republican delegates that his
best chance might be in states that voted
weeks ago.
The chief rival to the front-running
Romney, Santorum is trying to improve
his lot inplaces like Iowa
and Washington, where
local caucuses were just
the first step in deter-
mining delegates to the
Republican National
Convention. In those
states and a few others, supporters are
now preparing for county, congressional
district and state conventions, where the
campaigns hope to keep their delegates
— and possibly poach some.
Santorum trails Romney by 300 and
would need to win 74 percent of the dele-
gates in the remaining primaries to
clinchthenominationbeforethenational
conventioninAugust. Sofar, Santorumis
winning just 27 percent, according to the
tally by The Associated Press.
But the former Pennsylvania senator’s
campaign predicts that he will signifi-
cantly increase his delegate haul in cau-
cus states, primarily at the expense of
Romney.
“If you believe the Romney campaign’s
spin that they have this superior organi-
zation, but yet they’re losing these con-
tests, it must mean they have a deficient
candidate who is unable to appeal to the
base of the party,” said John Yob, Santo-
rum’s national delegate director.
Romney’s backers question whether
Santorumhas a sufficient organizationto
compete in upcoming primaries while al-
so trying to rally supporters in states that
held caucuses weeks or months ago.
Trailing Romney badly in the count, former Pa. senator plans
to go back and pick up backing at expense of front-runner

NEW YORK — Supermarket
chains Kroger Co. and Stop &
ShopsaidThursday they will join
the growing list of store chains
that will no longer sell beef that
includes an additive with the un-
appetizing moniker “pink slime.”
Federal regulators say the am-
monia-treatedfiller, knowninthe
industry as “lean, finely textured
beef,” meets food safety stan-
dards. But critics say the product
could be unsafe and is an unappe-
tizing example
of industrial-
ized food pro-
duction.
The Kroger
Co., the na-
tion’s largest
traditional gro-
cer with 2,435
supermarkets
in 31 states, al-
so said it will
stop buying the
beef, reversing
itself after say-
ing Wednesday
that it would
sell beef both
with and with-
out the addi-
tive.
Earlier
Thursday, Stop
& Shop said
that while the
U.S. Depart-
ment of Agri-
culture has said
the product is
safe for consumption, it will stop
selling the beef due to customer
concerns.
The chains joined Safeway, Su-
pervalu and Food Lion, among
others, who have said they won’t
sell beef with the filler.
“Our customers have ex-
pressed their concerns that the
use of leanfinely texturedbeef —
while fully approved by the US-
DA for safety and quality — is
something they do not want in
their groundbeef,” Kroger saidin
a statement. “As a result, Kroger
will no longer purchase ground
beef containing lean finely tex-
tured beef.”
The low-cost ingredient is
made from fatty bits of meat left
over from other cuts. The prod-
uct is exposed to ammonium hy-
droxide gas to kill bacteria.
Though the term “pink slime”
has been used pejoratively for at
least several years, it wasn’t until
early March that social media
suddenly exploded with worry.
Wal-Mart Stores Inc., which
sells more food than any other re-
tailer, did not immediately re-
spond to requests for comment.

statement
WASHINGTON — Drawing a new
election-year fault line between the par-
ties, the Republican-controlled House
voted Thursday to repeal a Medicare
cost-control board that has yet to be
named but is called for in President Ba-
rack Obama’s health care overhaul law.
The GOP has branded the Independ-
ent Payment Advisory Board a rationing
panel, and Republicans hope the symbol-
ic 223-181 vote to repeal it will persuade
seniors that they, and not the Democrats,
are the best stewards of Medicare.
IPAB would have the power to force
cuts to service providers like drug com-
panies if Medicare costs rise beyond pre-
determined levels. A Republican Medi-
care plan announced this week would al-
so limit Medicare cost increases, but rely
more on market competition.
If it sounds like a debate among Wash-
ington insiders, Rep. Jack Kingston, R-
Ga., said he would have no trouble ex-
plaining to constituents why he voted to
repeal the board.
“Do you remember death panels?” said
Kingston, referring to the debunked ac-
cusationbyformer GOPvice presidential
candidate Sarah Palin that Obama’s
health care law would allow bureaucrats
to withhold life-saving care.
“It’s not necessarily a death panel, but
it is a rationing panel and rationing does
lead to scarcity for some,” he added.
The health care law explicitly bars the
board from rationing care, shifting costs
to Medicare recipients or cutting their
benefits. But critics say squeezing ser-
vice providers will stifle medical innova-
tion, achieving a similar result.

DALLAS, Texas — At least
five high-ranking executives
with the Susan G. Komen for
the Cure breast cancer charity
have resigned in the aftermath
of theorganization’s decisionto
eliminate its funding for
Planned Parenthood.
Thedepartures includethree
officials from Komen’s Dallas
headquarters, as well as CEOs
of affiliate groups in Oregon
and New York City. Although
some of the executives cited
personal reasons, the resigna-
tions suggest that Komen is
still in turmoil, even after res-
toring the money.
Komen spokeswoman Leslie
Aunsaidshe couldnot speak to
individuals’ reasons for leaving
but acknowledged the effects
of the controversy among sup-
porters.
“Obviously, we know some
folks are upset. We’ve certainly
seen that,” Aun said. “We know
people have been upset by re-
cent events, but most really do
recognize the importance of
our work.”
The resignations began
about a month ago. Chris
McDonald, executive director
and chief executive of the orga-
nization’s Oregon and south-
west Washington affiliate, an-
nounced that she’ll leave at the
end of April. She said her deci-
sion wasn’t “predicated by any
one event,” but that actions by
national headquarters affected
her thinking.
Some Komen affiliates, in-
cluding McDonald’s, were
among those that publicly op-
posed the policy change that
cut off grants for Planned Par-
enthood.

“They gave him a jer-
sey when we got here,
and he just lit up,” said
Doug. “It means a lot to
see the smile on his face.”
Kayden’s smile grew
even bigger when he
stepped on the ice after
practice and was joined
by several players. Along
with his brother, Joshua,
who is 2, Kayden passed
the puck around with
Ryan Craig, Alexandre Pi-
card, Scott Munroe and
Joey Mormina.
He even managed to
get a shot past Munroe
on a few occasions.
Needless to say, they
were goals that the Pen-
guins net minder didn’t
mind giving up.
“When you see the re-
action and the happiness
from him, it’s a lot of
fun,” Munroe said. “We
have as much fun as they
do just seeing them
smile.”
Thursday’s visit was
the first time the Pen-
guins partnered with the
Make-A-Wish Foundation.
It likely won’t be the
last, said Maggie O’Brien,
regional manager for the
Make-A-Wish office in
Scranton.
“The team and organi-
zation have been incred-
ibly accommodating and
they rolled out the red
carpet for Kayden and his
family,” she said. “Now
that we’ve opened the
door and explored the
partnership, I don’t see
why we can’t do more
with the Penguins.”
That would be fine
with Craig, who has kids
of his own and said
spending time with Kay-
den and his family hit
home.
“The moment Kayden
stepped on the ice he was
so excited and started to
smile, and it was our
privilege to meet him and
his family,” Craig said.
“Hockey players in gen-
eral on any team always
enjoy doing these things.
When you see a little boy
like Kayden, and you can
make his day by spending
a little time with him, it’s
very special.”

Last fall, the NRC gave the
power plant a “degraded corner-
stone” designation – the third
most serious for safety problems
on a five-level scale – after an
unplanned shutdown of reactor
Unit 1 in January. It was the
fourth such
shutdown in a
7,000-hour op-
erational peri-
od, prompting
the designa-
tion and put-
ting the reac-
tor among the
four lowest-
performing in
the nation for
safety.
At Wednes-
day’s meeting,
which was
called to dis-
cuss the NRC’s annual assess-
ment of safety performance at
the plant, NRC Branch Chief
Paul Krohn said the power plant
is secure.
“We spend a lot of time in-
specting security at that plant.
Don’t be fooled for a moment
about the integrity of that plant
and its ability to resist an ad-
versary. It’s strong and it’s ro-
bust. And it was strengthened
since September 2011,” Krohn
had said.
Public comment was ad-
dressed to NRC representatives
and plant officials were not giv-
en the opportunity to publicly
respond to it at the meeting.
Spokesman: Plant secure
On Thursday, PPL Susquehan-
na spokesman Joe Scopelliti said
he agreed with
Krohn’s state-
ment and doesn’t
believe DeRonde
and her group
were on PPL
property, al-
though they
might have been
on a public road
nearby.
“We have well-
armed, well-
trained individu-
als in place. … It
you tired to enter
the plant, I think
you would find a lot of resist-
ance. We have force-on-force
drills may not seem that way to
an individual, but I can promise
you that is a fortress,” he said.
Also at Wednesday’s meeting,
NRC Regional Administrator
Bill Dean said Epstein’s issue of
PPL “flying solo” was “extreme-
ly valid. … I think they isolated
themselves from the industry for
a period of time,” he said.
Dean also said he believes
PPL recognized the problem and
was working to improve.
Scopelliti disagreed with Ep-
stein’s statement and wasn’t
sure what Dean meant in his
characterization.
Scopelliti said PPL is a mem-
ber of the Utilities Service Alli-
ance, described on the alliance
website as “an independent op-
erator fleet” of 17 nuclear power
plants in the United States, and
the Institute of Nuclear Power
Operations, an organization
whose employees “help the nu-
clear power industry achieve the
highest levels of safety and relia-
bility.”
Scopelliti said PPL Susque-
hanna has employees who par-
ticipate in benchmarking – vis-
iting other nuclear facilities, ob-
serving and learning about their
procedures and bringing back
the best practices to incorporate
at their own plant.
“The fact that we’re not part
of a fleet if power plants (owned
by the same company) does not
prevent us from going to other
utilities to learn best practices,”
he said.
Visits to other plants
Scopelliti said three of the
main issues the NRC had with
PPL operations included inade-
quacies with some procedures,
procedure writing and error pre-
vention techniques.
“So we went and we looked at
other plants in the industry, saw
what would work best and devel-
oped an action plan. We trained
87 people to be more effective
writers of procedure and we’re
also training all our employees
on procedure adherence. … We
did make progress,” Scopelliti
said.
Scopelliti noted that Unit 1
was moving from the “degraded
cornerstone” designation to the
second-highest safety level –
“regulatory response” because
progress was made.
Still, the NRC will continue
ramped-up inspections until and
unless Unit 1 moves into the top
safety level, but not to the level
necessitated by the degraded
cornerstone designation.

public employee” using the author-
ity of their position for the “private
pecuniary benefit” of himself/her-
self tohire a member of his/her fam-
ily.
“I begthis council tonot appoint a
highly unethical persontoa panel to
make decisions for this city,” Sorick
said.
Bob Kadluboski, the city’s former
towing contractor, looked at Barrett
and said, “The fix is in, Bill.”
Barrett was absent from the last
council meeting when Jensen’s ap-
pointment failed by a 2-2 vote.
Council was scheduled to meet
March 29, but Barrett requested it
be moved to Thursday because he
would be unable to attend next
week. Council obliged and Jensen
received three votes.
KarenCeppaHirko, wholost abid
to become the city controller in No-
vember, said Jensen is unqualified
to sit on the planning commission.
“These positions should not be
handed to individuals chosen in se-
cret by the mayor due to their affil-
iation with him,” Hirko said. “You
(council) continue to have your ac-
tivities directed by the mayor in-
stead of acting as an independent
body that you should be.”
In other business:
•HirkoandMarkRobbins, of For-
ty Fort, told council that Controller
Kathy Kane should attend council
meetings andprovide reports onthe
city’s finances. Hirko said she has
had difficulty getting answers from
Kane, who has told her to seek the
information through a right-to-
know request.
• Kadluboski again protested
fees charged by LAG Towing, the
company that replaced Kadlubos-
ki’s City-Wide Towing, sayinghe has
copies of bills inthe hundreds of dol-
lars. Kadluboski asked council to
look into the charges and also LAG
owner Leo A. Glodzik’s relation-
ships with city employees and his
donations to Leighton’s campaigns.
George said receipts may show
high dollar amounts, but the city
would react quicker to complaints if
filed by people whose vehicles were
towed.
“The police go by complaints, not
receipts,” George, a former city po-
lice chief, said.
• Anita Frank and Lillian Cohen,
representingthe DowntownWilkes-
Barre Residents Association, asked
council to establish a zoned parking
permit area in their neighborhood.
They said other areas of the city
have permits for residents. They
said zoning the area would improve
parking for residents and their
guests.
Leighton said the city is looking
into the issue and will meet again
with the association. The mayor
said he wants to establish the zone,
but wants to be certain it is done le-
gally.
“The parking situation gives us
no sense of residence,” Cohen said.
“This would make all of our lives
easier.”

2/6/49 ~ 3/23/11
1 Year Ago
It has been 1 year since you
have been gone and it feels like a
lifetime.
You have been my guardian angel
who has opened so many doors for
me and guiding me through life
with your courage and determina-
tion you left behind to make me
go on.
You are my guiding light that
shines down on me protecting me
and because of you I have a true
path of existence today.
You have made me who I am
today and I am very grateful
everyday that God chose you for
my mother. You also took away
my fears and gave me the faith to
believe all things are possible as
long as I believe in myself the pos-
sibilities are endless.
You have touched so many people
through your lifetime and always
made a very special presence.
You are the mom that would
move a heart and soul to dance.
The memories of us together I will
cherish forever
Now you have moved my heart
and soul to dance and be grateful
for the time we spent together as a
mother and a daughter.
You saved my life and I will
never forget it!
I Love You and I Miss You Dearly!

The state Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection said
Thursday it approved a permit to
expand the Small Mountain
Quarry, setting the stage for
Pennsy Supply Inc. once again to
present its project to Dorrance
Township officials.
It will be the third time the
company asked to expand. The
courts denied the company’s
first special exception request.
Township supervisors suspend-
ed hearings on the second appli-
cation to allow the company to
conduct further environmental
testing and seek DEP approval.
Patrick Bartorillo, president of
Pennsy Supply’s north region,
said he was optimistic it would
meet with the approval of town-
ship officials and prevent the
elimination of approximately150
well-paying jobs.
“I think we have a great plan,”
he said.
It incorporates concerns
raised by the township and in-
cludes steps the company will
take such as: directing storm wa-
ter from Balliet’s Run, enclosing
rock crushing equipment to re-
duce noise and dust, and raising
the mining depth 20 feet higher
to 1,230 feet.
The company produces high-
grade construction aggregate
stone used in paving and con-
crete.
If the expansion is approved,
the quarry will be able to operate
for another 20 years. It is getting
close to running out of material.
“Our reserve situation is not
very good,” said Bartorillo
Pennsy dropped off its condi-
tional use application to the
township on Thursday, he add-
ed.
“We will go before the plan-
ning commission as soon as they
are able to see us,” he said.
That hearing will likely be
held April 30, said Ben Ostrow-
ski Jr. a township supervisor.
He received a copy of the ap-
plication but has not gone over it
yet in detail.
“The plan has changed from
the second application drastical-
ly,” said Ostrowski.
The planning commission will
scrutinize the application and
make a recommendation to the
supervisors who will schedule
hearings, he explained. .

WILKES-BARRE – The Fam-
ily Services Association of
Wyoming Valley held the first
in a planned series of Safe Zone
meetings Wednesday to address
challenges facing local lesbian,
gay, bisexual and
transgender youth.
Topics ranged from
bullying, assertiveness
training and self-es-
teem building to “com-
ing-out” issues.
The program is a
joint effort between
the association and
the NEPA Rainbow Al-
liance. Monthly meet-
ings are planned.
“The idea for this
program was actually germinat-
ed a few years ago by the Rain-
bow Alliance,” said association
Executive Director Mark Zim-
merman. “They were able to
secure grant funding for the
program and plans moved for-
ward. We’re really excited about
our involvement with this pro-
ject.”
NEPA Rainbow Alliance
spokesman John Dawe said the
group did several focus groups
and surveys to help them iden-
tify the most pertinent issues
facing local LGBT youth.
“We hope to provide emo-
tional support, education and a
social outlet for
LBGT teens,”
Dawe said. “Self-
esteem and self-
acceptance are vi-
tal steps in this
process.”
Dawe said most
LGBT youth face
multiple challeng-
es.
“These teens
are at risk, not
due to their life-
style or sexual orientation,”
said Dawe. “They’re at risk be-
cause of the cultural perception
of their lifestyle and sexual ori-
entation, and that’s a constant
problem.
“Coming out to family and
friends is a very difficult deci-
sion for these kids. It’s an ongo-
ing decision that’s made in
stages throughout life and
sometimes not made at all.”
Zimmerman explained that
the Family Services Associ-
ation, the creator of Help Line,
has been aiding local families
for more than 116 years, and
the partnership with the Rain-
bow Alliance was a natural pro-
gression for the group.
“We’re about building com-
munity,” said Zimmerman.
“We’re about family. It’s what
our name represents. Magic
happens between people, and
that’s what we’re trying to in-
still with this program.”

fore Luzerne County Judge Wil-
liam Amesbury.

40 years in pris-
on. Her trial on
an open count

The couple had been in a rela-
tionship for 18 months, investiga-
tors said.

tors she left the house after an ar-
gument with Reilly. She said she
returned later that night and had
to smash a window to get in. She
said the argument continued.
Reillywas ona bed, Jordantold
investigators, when she reached
into a closet and grabbed a load-
ed shotgun that she fired at his
head, according to the affidavit.
Jordan later described for in-
vestigators howshe triedtoclean
up the blood and drank a beer be-
fore running to her sister’s home
in Luzerne, where police were
called.
Kingston police had charged
ReillywithassaultingJordandur-
ing a domestic dispute at the
home in December.
Defense attorney Demetrius
Fannick said at the time of Jor-
dan’s preliminary hearing in
April 2011 there was a history of
Reilly being violent toward Jor-
dan.
Jordan will be required to pay
$3,407inrestitutionas part of her
plea agreement, and is to have no
contact with Reilly’s family.

HAZLETON– Renita Fennick, who has
served as communications director for
U.S. Rep. Tom Marino since January of
2011, will replace Stefanie Pollock as dis-
trict director for U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta.
PollockisleavingBarletta’sstaff totakea
position in the private sector.
Fennick, whois apast executivedirector
of the Luzerne County Republican Party,
will start her newjob on April 9.
“Renita brings a wealth of local knowl-
edge and regional expe-
rience to my office, and
I’m pleased to welcome
her to my team,” Barlet-
ta said. “I’ve known Ren-
ita for many years. She is
committed and dedicat-
edtoimprovingthelives
of people in Northeast-
ernPennsylvania andI thinkshe will make
an excellent district director.”
It’s the second high-profile change in
Barletta’s organization this year. In Janu-
ary, PatrickRothwell left as Barletta’s chief
of staff in Washington, D.C. He was re-
placed by Andrea Waldock.
Barlettaisrunningforhissecondtermin
the11th Congressional District. He has no
opposition in the Republican primary. In
November he will face the winner of the
Democratic primary contest between Bill
Vinsko, aresident of Wilkes-Barre, whichis

an activist fromthe Harrisburg area noted
for bringing an inflatable pink pig to pro-
tests.

Voice and Times Leader newspapers in
Wilkes-Barre, and was city editor of The
Times Leader until 2009, when she left for
the county Republican Party post. She
lives in Wilkes-Barre Township and has
two grown children, Ken and Chrissy Pep-
perling.

The district director is responsible for
Barletta’s offices in the 11th District, in-
cludingconstituent services, outreachand
staffing. Barletta has three district offices,
in Hazleton, Wilkes-Barre and Taylor.
Barletta said Pollock was instrumental
insettingupthe offices andinestablishing
hours that allowconstituents tomeet with
office representatives closer to their
homes.
“She spent many hours attending meet-
ings onmybehalf, meetingwithelectedof-
ficials and constituents, and supervising
theentiredistrict staff,” Barletta said. “She
worked even harder after the historic
flooding in September.”
Fennick leaves Marino’s communications’ office to work for Barletta

WILKES-BARRE – A King-
stonwoman, chargedinadead-
lyhit-and-run, whoviolatedthe
terms of her bail last month
and was jailed at the county
prison, posted her $50,000 bail
Thursday.
Karen McCann, 33, ap-
peared before County Judge
WilliamAmesbury, and was re-
leased from the county prison
with several conditions to fol-

from a June 2011 incident in
which 64-year-old Aloysius
McLaughlin
was killed.

had cocaine and prescription
medications in her system at
the time. She had been partici-
pating in the county’s Day Re-
porting Center last month,

police were called to the scene.
Police said they were able to
stop a vehicle driven by Hallas,
who was had a suspended li-
cense.
• July 26, 2011: Police said
Hallas stole metal from Casey-
Kasa Coal Co. in Newport
Township, and he was driving
with a suspended license.
Police said they could not
track down Hallas immediately
after they were called to the
coal company.
• Aug. 17, 2011: Police said
Hallas and two other men made
off with approximately $4,000
worth of metal piping

PITTSTON – British clothier
Boden has opened its first U.S.
outlet store in downtown Pitt-
ston.
The London-based company
that sells clothing for men, wom-
en and children primarily by
mail-order, in December began
selling overstock on weekends
in the Open Space building on
South Main Street.
What started as an experi-
ment is nowbecoming more per-
manent, with the company plan-
ning a grand opening on Satur-
day from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
“We’ve been very busy so far,”
said Holly Kelleher, liquidations
manager for Boden. “We haven’t
done any advertisement as of yet
about opening the space and we
already have some regular cus-
tomers. It’s been very well re-
ceived so far, so I can only imag-
ine now that we have a little bit
of advertising behind us that it
will be very well received.”
In 2008 Boden opened its only
call and distribution center in
the United States in the Center-
Point Commerce and Trade Park
in Jenkins Township. Two years
later, the company announced
plans to more than double the
size of its warehouse and add 60
new jobs to the work force of
140.
The store started out as an
idea floated by Pittston’s Rede-
velopment Authority, which ap-
proached Boden about holding
occasional sales in the Open
Space, a former dress factory
turned multipurpose building
the authority hopes will inspire
redevelopment and growth of
the city’s downtown.
“For some of the local busi-
nesses around us, we’ve made
ourselves kind of a flagship
store, and it’s already increased
the traffic to other stores,” she
said.

Shickshinnymaybeeligiblefor
a federal loan to keep the bor-
ough running as it recovers from
the flood of 2011.
The flood-rattled town has cut
back on services to pay for disas-
ter recovery, but a loan from the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency might help it maintain
those services through its recov-
ery.
The Community Disaster
Loan Program provides oper-
ational funding to help local gov-
ernments that have incurred a
significant loss of revenue due to
a major disaster that has affected
or will adversely affect their abil-
ity to provide essential municipal
services. The money may be used
only for services, not construc-
tion or repair costs.
The maximum amount the
borough can borrow is the small-
est of three figures:
• 25 percent of its 2011 operat-
ing budget, about $75,000.
• The borough’s cumulative
estimated revenue loss for 2011
and the subsequent three years.
• $5 million.
The loans come with a five-
year repayment schedule, which
may be extended to10 years, and
an interest rate equal to the trea-
sury-department rate for five-
year maturities on the day the
loan is issued. That rate is cur-
rently 1 percent.
Shickshinny has applied for as-
sistance and is nowworking with
a consulting firm appointed by
the FEMA, Hagerty Consulting
Firm, to determine whether the
borough qualifies for the aid, ac-
cording to borough secretary/
treasurer Melissa Weber.
To qualify, the borough must
show a loss of greater than 5 per-
cent of tax andother revenues for
the current or following year as a
result of a major disaster, and
show that the disaster adversely
impacted the level of essential
services previously provided.
Weber calledtheassessment “a
no-brainer” because the borough
clearly qualifies.
Weber saidShickshinny, which
has an annual budget of about
$296,000, has spent more than
$90,000inflood-relatedexpenses
to date.
“We’ve cut our services more
thaninhalf,” Weber said. “We can
no longer pick up leaves and
grass clippings; our road crew
has been knocked down from 36
hours to 18; I’m down to 12. Ev-
eryone’s doing their part.”
The borough has taken out a
$50,000 tax anticipation loan.
She called the federal loan pro-
gram “a godsend.”

“He’s a wannabe police officer.
Why did he have a gun?”
Benjamin Crump
The lawyer for the family of slain teenager Trayvon
Martin recently talked about George Zimmerman,
who has been at the center of a growing furor over
vigilantism, self-defense and racial profiling since he shot and killed the
unarmed black youth.
Let’s get the word out
about child abuse help
W
ith all of the child abuse cases and
parents killing their children and
babies, so many thoughts go through
everyone’s heads. What can be done? How
do we get more information out there?
Unfortunately, I do not think the people
who need help know about the proper
channels. Most of the time when child
abuse, or worse action, happens it is done
by someone young who does not have
family support.
I believe there is a way to show people
what they can do if they find they cannot
take care of a child or baby. Fire stations,
hospitals – there are so many options out
there that keep your identity private; even
if you drop off a baby, you can just leave
and not tell anyone who you are.
Between newspapers and radio, I think
we can make people aware of all their
options. What would it hurt if every
month, or every other month, papers and
radio stations let people know what they
can do, so no more lives are taken?

Wait for the government
to brighten your world
I
was considering having the exterior of
my home painted this summer, until I
read that Wilkes-Barre is going to give
building owners on gateway streets up to
$5,000 each to improve the exteriors.
Why, I thought, should I pay to paint my
house when I can just wait around for the
government to pay? The money will come
from our local share of the state gambling
tax.
If you want help from the government,
stop paying your mortgage, don’t paint
your house and get on up to the casino.
Remember, 55 cents of every dollar you
lose goes to our state government. The
more you lose, the more it has to help us.
Before you know it, they will have
enough money to paint every house in
Wilkes-Barre. It will be so beautiful that
people and businesses will flock to move
into our city.
Happy days will be here again.

Make corrupt officials
really pay for crimes
I
could care less about who steals what
from whom. What I care about is why
we have to do with less – less fire and
police protection, fewer public funds avail-
able for schools and other public services.
At the same time these corrupt political
scumbags get away with paying a portion
of the money they stole, they keep the
million-dollar home, the summer cottages,
high-priced cars, the gifts to the kids, etc.
Then they have the gall to say there isn’t
enough money left to run the government,
so taxpayers have to pay higher taxes yet
again.
It seems like it is time to feed the flag of
freedom by taking the illegal profits away
from the crooks, just like they take the
proceeds from the little guy who sells
drugs or robs the local market. We need to
make the phrase “crime doesn’t pay” mean
something to everyone, not only the poor.

Use portion of sales
to help smokers quit
T
welve years ago I got pneumonia and
was a heavy smoker, but I quit. I was
hospitalized and put on a ventilator for
several days. Because of my smoking it
took longer for my recovery and my lungs
were damaged. Recently I was hospitalized
for many problems, including my lungs.
Cigarettes cost $5 to $6 a pack. A small
percentage can be taken out of this cost so
the smoker can get a free product to help
him or her quit smoking. The smokers are
the ones who paid for these cigarettes, so
let’s all get together and help them quit.

Street paving must
accommodate disabled
M
unicipalities in the Wyoming Valley
are developing lists of streets to be
paved this spring and summer. It is
important to note that accessibility for
people with disabilities must be included
in these plans.
The Americans with Disabilities Act of
1990 requires that curb cuts be installed
when paving through intersections, even if
there are no plans to replace sidewalk
corners. This mandate stems from a court
decision in the early 1990s that determined
resurfacing city streets constitutes an
“alteration” in the language of ADA. As a
result, cities were ordered to install curb
cuts on those portions of streets where
resurfacing would take place, including
retroactive requirements for those streets
that had been resurfaced since Jan. 26,
1992, the effective date of ADA.
Curb cuts are integral to the independ-
ence of people with disabilities. A domino
effect occurs when citizens access side-
walks. One basic right leads to patronizing
restaurants, shopping and participating in
other community activities already en-
joyed by the public.
People with disabilities should contact
their municipalities and inquire about
paving plans, then determine if curb cuts
will be installed.
Anyone who discovers a potential vio-
lation can call the Northeast Pennsylvania
Center for Independent Living at 1-800-
344-7211.

Fluke is true degrader
of female population
W
hile the media focus on the bombast
of a radio pundit, the most deroga-
tory and demeaning comments re-
garding women have come from George-
town law student Sandra Fluke’s faux
testimony before the Democrats.
Remember the context was that she was
rejected as a presenter for a congressional
hearing on religious freedom and then was
allowed by the Democrats to hold a press
conference at which she expounded on her
progressive views.
Borrowing a page from President Oba-
ma’s elitist playbook, she was not there for
herself, but to represent her meek and
ineffectual classmates. She related that 40
percent of the female student body at
Georgetown was overwhelmed with the
prospect of earning or budgeting for $20 of
expenses a week.
If credible, this level of ineptness would
render these students incapable of matric-
ulating through their basic course work.
She stereotypes women who seek higher
education as non-problem solvers who
can’t speak for themselves and are just
holding out for a big government program
that will force the common taxpayer to
help subsidize their lives.
Those of us who come from families in
which the women were the equal or stron-
ger role model than their male counter-
parts find Ms. Fluke’s characterizations
beyond offensive.
Ms. Fluke has a right to speak out
against religious freedom, a tenet that
millions risked life and limb to get for our
country, but she should not have to de-
mean one half of the human species to do
it.

OR THE SECOND
time in as many years,
the House Republican
leadership has put for-
ward a deficit-cutting budget
plan that’s more of a political
statement than a governing
blueprint.
The proposed budget for fis-
cal 2013 promotes a long list of
conservative policies that are
only tangentially related to the
federal finances – for example,
repealing new federal restric-
tions on Wall Street and ending
the moratorium on offshore oil
drilling. Even the proposals
that are purely fiscal in nature
rely on changes in lawthat Sen-
ate Democrats won’t support,
such as repealing the 2010
health care reform law.
But then, the annual budgets
proposed by the White House
are largely political documents
too.
Democrats already are focus-
ing their protests on the big
changes Budget Committee
Chairman Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis.,
proposes for Medicare, starting
in about a decade. But it’s not
the draconian outline Ryan of-
fered last year, which would
havereplacedMedicarewithin-
surance subsidies for the elder-
ly that probably wouldn’t have
kept pace withthe risingcost of
medical care. The new plan
would preserve Medicare as an
optionbut haveprivateinsurers
compete with it for customers.
Ryanpoints intheright direc-
tion in many areas, such as call-
ing for eliminating tax breaks
and lowering rates, reforming
farm subsidies and consolidat-
ing federal job-training pro-
grams. But the political reality
in Washington is that highly
partisan proposals don’t get en-
acted. As ambitious as his plan
is, it seems fated to wind up in
the same dustbin.

F YOU’RE BOTHERED
by the trash strewn along
area roadways, if the sight
of beer bottles and fast-
food wrappers discarded on
Luzerne County’s stream
banks makes your heart sink,
you are not alone.
Lots of area residents cringe
at the way certain piggish peo-
ple casually litter our land-
scape. This spring, join with
the hundreds, even thousands,
of kindred spirits who do more
than carp about the mess.
Participate in one or more of
the trash pickups planned in
March and April as part of the
annual Great American Clea-
nup of Pennsylvania – a volun-
teer-powered campaign to rid
parks, playgrounds and other
public places of castoff stuff.
Find out what activities are
planned in your neighborhood
by visiting this website:
www.gacofpa.org.
So far, the site lists about a
dozen cleanups scheduled be-
tween now and May 1 in Lu-
zerne County. Among the loca-
tions: Wilkes-Barre, Wilkes-
Barre Township, Hazleton,
Harveys Lake, Hanover Town-
ship and Duryea.
Beginning at 9 a.m. Satur-
day, for example, participants
are asked to help remove flood-
swept debris from the Kirby
Park Natural Area and nearby
riverfront parks in Wilkes-
Barre. Organizers plantoscour
the territory in preparation for
late April’s Earth Day festival,
when hundreds of school-age
children visit the site for envi-
ronmental lessons.
Similarly, at noon Saturday,
trash bag-toting volunteers in-
tend to start plucking refuse
from Shickshinny Playground,
at the corner of the borough’s
Canal and Oak streets.
Be advised: Collecting litter
isn’t rocket science, but the
taskposes its share of risks. Be-
ware of handling broken glass,
heavy objects and sharp items
as well as coping with passing
traffic and other site-specific
hazards: steep hills, swollen
streams, etc. Would-be partici-
pants should contact the clea-
nup’s organizer to learn about
any age restrictions, registra-
tion requirements and other
expectations.
Several area cleanups won’t
be conducted until April, al-
lowing plenty of time to enroll
your friends, family members,
school group, sports team, civ-
ic club or other organization. If
no event is planned in your ar-
ea, consider coordinating one.
Or supplement this statewide
cleanup effort with other com-
munity-beautifying activities.
Remove graffiti. Plant flowers
and trees.
After all, this is your part of
the planet; why allowit to look
ugly?

PITTSTON TWP. – After
holding off on a parking lot ex-
pansion project last September,
the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton In-
ternational Airport sought more
bids and saved more than
$158,000 when it awarded the
contract Thursday.
The much-needed work will
add an additional 130 revenue-
generating parking spaces to
the more than 1,100 currently
on the property by converting
one of the two existing employ-
ee parking lots into a paid lot
and enlarging the other employ-
ee lot to accommodate all work-
ers.
At $536,518 for a base bid,
Sproul Construction of Clarks
Summit offered the lowest bid
of the three that were made. Its
offer of $71,226 for an alternate
project will likely also be ap-
proved, making the total project
$607,744.
When the project was put out
for bid last fall, Popple Con-
struction of Laflin was the lone
bidder and offered to do the
work for $766,000. Airport Di-
rector Barry J. Centini felt that
was too high. He blamed the
amount of work keeping con-
struction crews busy after the
September flooding for the lack
of bids and the highball offer he
felt Popple made.
Popple did submit a bid in
this round, too, totaling
$689,692 when factoring in the
base bid and the alternate work.
But even at $76,000 less than
its bid of just seven months pri-
or, it wasn’t low enough.
Pikes Creek Site Construction
was the third bidder, offering to
do the work, which Centini be-
lieves will start in April and
take less than two months to
complete, for $1.07 million.
Airport engineer Steve Myku-
lyn said the airport’s parking
woes will be taken care of at a
savings from the original bid.
Centini noted parking has
been on the rise thanks to addi-
tional fliers, mainly brought on
by the Marcellus Shale industry
that’s set up operations across
the state’s Northern Tier and
has chosen the airport in Pitt-
ston Township as its preferred
hub.
In February, parking was up
14.4 percent from the year prior
and Centini noted 18.3 percent
of the vehicles that used the
parking lot had out-of-state tags.
Centini said vehicles parked
at the terminal’s garage and sur-
face lots commonly bear tags
from states where gas drilling
companies are based, including
Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and
Tennessee.
Rebidding parking lot project saves airport $158,000
Work will add 130 paying
spaces to more than 1,100
currently there.

years without a raise, and in the midst of
budget crunches and layoffs, it wouldn’t
be right tothengoandapprove payhikes
for airport workers.
“I’ll be asking them to make further
sacrifices. It won’t be easy to ask themto
do that” while all employees at the air-
port aregettingtheir raises, Lawtonsaid.
Just last month, Luzerne County offi-
cials announced 61 employees would
lose their jobs due to budget cuts. At
least 40 of the 61furloughed workers are
unionized, records show.
Efforts to approve pay rates for the
non-union staff at the airport have been
brought up for numerous votes and
failed over the past three years. Typical-
ly, Lackawanna County’s three represen-
tatives have beensupportive, but the Lu-
zerne County contingency has been op-
posed.
In some cases, Luzerne County offi-
cials have tried to sway Lackawanna
County officials to vote for payments to
fund the airport retirees’ pension fund in
exchangefor their supportingpayraises,
but those efforts failed.
But with all new representatives from
LuzerneCountyontheairport boardthis
year, the matter was brought up once
more and finally gained approval.
Rick Williams, one of the three Lu-
zerne County designates on the airport
board, said he felt the time had come to
compensate airport officials better.
“They’ve sacrificed the past few
years,” Williams said.
He said the vote was difficult but said
“to keep good management people in
place, you need to compensate them
properly.”
Williams said that when the county
budget process comes up later this year
he will advocate for raises for county
managers, too.
“They’ve also sacrificed,” Williams
said.
Lawton said he stands by his vote and
noted it was not a knock on those work-
ing at the airport, but a reflection that
times are tough with budgets.
When asked if the raises will likely be
used by county managers as leverage for
requestingraises, he said, “I will play the
hand I’ve been dealt.”

Thefundhasonlythreerevenue
streams – employee contribu-
tions, investment returns and the
taxpayer subsidy.
Annual employee contributions
intothefundhavehoveredaround
$4 million since 2008, Hummer
said.
The fund’s expenses are signifi-
cantlymore: $13.3millionin2008,
$18.5 million in 2009 and $16.3
million in 2010, Hummer said.
Last year’s total expenses havenot
been audited for release, he said.
Retiree payouts
Retiree payouts consume the li-
on’s share of the costs, which also
include administrative expenses
and money manager fees.
Pension adviser Morgan Stan-
ley Smith Barney has focused on
boosting the fund to cover both
current and future liabilities,
though county officials don’t ex-
pect an end to taxpayer subsidy in
the foreseeable future.
As of last year, the gap between
fund assets and future liabilities
was projectedat around$50.7mil-
lion. County employees are guar-
anteed specific pension amounts
by law.
The fund was valued at $194.3
million as of Thursday – a $42.5
million increase since Morgan
StanleySmithBarneytookover as
pension adviser in September
2008, officials said.
The adviser actually generated
about $57 million in investment
returns during that period, but
nearly $15 million had to be used
to cover expenses that exceeded
contributions, officials said.
Future payouts
More stress could be placed on
thefundif countyofficials approve
potential retiree cost-of-living in-
creases andanearly-retirement in-
centive.
The law requires the board to
consider a retiree cost-of-living in-
crease every three years, though
approval isn’t mandated. The last
increasein2009iscostingthefund
$4.76 million over 10 years, Hum-
mer said.
County officials are preliminari-
lyexploringanearlyretirement in-
centive next year that could re-
ducepayroll costs but increasethe
taxpayer subsidy.
The state pension law allows
the employee pension fund to pay
for an early-retirement incentive
everyfiveyears, andthelast incen-
tive was in 2008, when 127 em-
ployees retired. That incentive
cost thefund$4.4millionover five
years, Hummer said.

Barre, Scranton and Binghamton, N.Y.
All three are gaining sales faster than
the average: Steamtown Mall sales are
up 9.4 percent and Binghamton is up
8.9 percent.
Boscov said he recently opened a
store in Monmouth, N.J., and others are
planned, including
one in Baltimore.
Boscov said new
store manager Tony
Georgetti has been a
key factor in the
Wilkes-Barre store’s
success.
Georgetti, 42, of
Sugarloaf, took over as store manager
in August. His mother, Janette Georget-
ti, is assistant store manager in Hazle-
ton.
Tony Georgetti attributes his store’s
success to its 135 employees – many of
them with years of Boscov’s experience
– and great customer service.
“We have a great group of people
working here,” he said. “Our customers
are our number one priority.”
Georgetti started working at the
Wilkes-Barre store when he was in high
school. He went on to be an assistant
store manager at several Boscov’s loca-
tions. He’s glad to be back home.
“This store has that community feel,”
Georgetti said. “Downtown Wilkes-
Barre has a lot to offer business-wise.
Boscov’s is a family-owned corporation
and we have that feeling here. And cus-
tomers can buy whatever they want un-
der one roof.”
Georgetti said he doesn’t have a time-
line on when remodeling will begin, but
a contractor has been looking at the
store.
“Wilkes-Barre has always been good
to us,” Boscov said. “The nice part
about Wilkes-Barre is that it keeps get-
ting better and better.”
Boscov said the Wilkes-Barre store
doesn’t do the same large volume as
others – about $20 million per year.
That ranks it 35th out of 40 Boscov
stores.
“It still does nice volume,” Boscov
said. “But we would like to see it come
up.”

acknowledging that Merah, a 23-
year-old Frenchman of
Algerian descent, had
been under surveil-
lance for years and that
his travels to Afghanis-
tan and Pakistan were
knowntoFrenchintelli-
gence — yet he wasn’t
stopped before he start-
ed his killing spree on
March 11. Merah had
beenona U.S. no-flylist
since 2010.
“One can ask the
questionwhether there was a fail-
ureornot,”FrenchForeignMinis-
ter Alain Juppe said on Europe 1
radio. “We need to bring some
clarity to this.”
Three Jewishschoolchildren, a
rabbi andthree paratroopers died
in France’s worst Islamist terror-
istviolencesinceawaveof attacks
in the 1990s by Algerian extre-
mists.
Merah filmed all three attacks,
Prosecutor Francois Molins said
Thursday, and claimed to have
postedthemonline.
“You killed my brother; I kill
you,” he said in the video of the
first attack, in which one French
paratrooper died, Molins said.
“Allah Akbar,” (God is Great), he
declaredduringthesecond, when
two more soldiers were killed.
TheprosecutorsaidMerahtold
police he wanted to
“bring France to its
knees.”
Authorities aretry-
ing to determine
whether Merah’s 29-
year-old brother, Ab-
delkader, was in-
volved, and are
searching for accom-
plices who might
haveencouragedMe-
rah to kill or fur-
nished the means to
do so, Molins said.
Merah espoused a radical form
of Islam and had been to Afghan-
istan and the Pakistani militant
stronghold of Waziristan, where
he claimedtohave receivedtrain-
ing from al-Qaida. He also had a
long record of petty crimes in
Franceforwhichheservedtimein
prison, and prosecutors said he
startedto radicalize behindbars.
Merah told negotiators he
killed to avenge the deaths of Pal-
estinian children and to protest
the Frencharmy’s involvement in
Afghanistanaswell asFrance’ law
against the Islamic face veil.
Police detainedhis mother and
brother and surrounded Merah’s
building soon after 3 a.m.
Wednesday. They tried to detain
Merah but were rebuffed by a vol-
ley of gunfire from his second-
floor apartment inacalmresiden-
tial area of Toulouse.
For the next day and a half, the
police, the neighborhood and the
nationwaited.
Near midnight Wednesday, the
detonations began, as police set
off blasts to pressure him to
emergeandblewtheshuttersoff a
window. Through the night they
continued.
Merahstoppedtalkingtonego-
tiators, Interior Minister Claude
Gueant said, and suspicions sur-
facedthat thegunmancouldhave
committedsuicide.
Then around 11:30 a.m., police
commandoes moved in, entering
through the door and windows,
Gueantsaid. Merahwasinthelast
room they checked: the bath-
room.
He burst through the door fir-
ing a Colt .45, then jumped out a
window “with a weapon in his
hand, continuing to shoot,”
Gueant said.
In the gunfight, he was shot in
the head, Molins said.
Three members of the elite
squad were wounded Thursday,
bringing the total of injured offi-
cers throughout the standoff to
five.
The SITE Intelligence Group,
which monitors Internet messag-
es, reportedThursdaythatalittle-

responsibility for the attacks in
France. Jund al-Khilafah issued a
statement saying “Yusuf of
France” ledanattack Monday.
French President Nicolas Sar-
kozy, speaking in Paris, an-
nounced tough new measures to
combat terrorism.
Sarkozy appealed to citizens
not to equate the violent acts of
extremists with France’s estimat-
ed 5 million Muslims. Muslim
leaders urged against any back-
lashagainst believers.
Sarkozy had alienated some
Muslims with his push to ban Is-

bate about halal meat, and his
strict immigrationpolicies.
Now, he may see his political
fortunes improve due to this
week’s dramatic events.

ATLANTA—Flankedby his family, his
former manager and a group of team-
mates he hates to leave behind, Chipper
Jones choked up a bit and delivered the
news that’s been looming for years:
It’s time to call it a career.
This time, he means it.
With his 40th birthday approaching
and a long string of injuries slowing him
down, Jones announced Thursday he will
retireafter onemoreseasonas theAtlanta
Braves’ third baseman.
“I have fulfilled everything,” Jones said
during a news conference at the team’s
spring training stadium in Kissimmee,
Fla. “There’s nothing left for me to do.”
Jones, who has spent his entire 18-year
career with Atlanta, actually planned to
retire after the 2010 season, only to
change his mind. As he battled leg issues
this spring, he openly wondered if he’d be
able to make it through the season.
So, he’ll give it one more year with the
Braves, then become a full-time dad to his
three children.
“I just want to make it final,” Jones

NEWYORK—Each time Tim
Tebow steps on the field for the
New York Jets, defenses will
know what to expect.
Well, the unexpected, of
course.
The versatile and elusive quar-
terback with the flair for dramat-
ic victories was acquired
Wednesday from the Denver
Broncos and will give the Jets’ of-
fense a boost — for at least a few
snaps a game.
“Instead of a team just prepar-
ing for our base offense, they will
have to prepare for what we do
and what we may do,” coach Rex
Ryan said at LSU’s pro day
Thursday in Baton Rouge, La.
Tebow, who arrived at the Jets’
facility in Florham Park, N.J., for
the first time Thursday after-
noon, won’t start as he did in
Denver, not with New York com-

BOSTON — Top-seeded Syracuse
used a breakout game by the slump-
ing C.J. Fair to advance to the East
Regional final.
Wisconsin missed two potential
winning shots in the final seconds,
and the Orange hung on for the 64-
63 win Thursday night to reach the
round of eight for the first time since
2003, when they won their only na-
tional championship.
Fair, who had scored a total of 20
points in his last six games, finished
with 15 on 7-for-9 shooting.
Kris Joseph, a 75 percent free
throw shooter, missed the front end
of a 1-and-1 with 18 seconds to go
with Syracuse up by a point, giving
the Badgers a chance at the victory.
Passing the ball around the perim-
eter of the zone but creating much
space, Jordan Taylor let go a 3 with 3
seconds left. It bounced off the rim
and Josh Gasser’s shot at the buzzer
was off.
Syracuse (34-2) plays Ohio State
or Cincinnati in the regional final
Saturday.
A matchup of two very different
styles of defense, the game came
down to a final possession for the
Badgers (26-10), who finished 14 of
27 from 3-point range but couldn’t
make one over the final 6 minutes.
Scoop Jardine had 14 points for
Syracuse, while Dion Waiters had 13
and Brandon Triche 11.
Jared Berggren and Taylor both
had 17 points for Wisconsin, which
led Division I this season by allowing

THE TIMES LEADER www.timesleader.com FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 2012 PAGE 3B
➛ N C A A T O U R N A M E N T
ATLANTA — At Kentucky,
the bar is set a lot higher than
most places.
National championship or
bust.
“It’s Kentucky,” coach John
Calipari said. “Do you expect
anything else?”
Tonight, the Wildcats will be
matched against one of the few
college basketball programs that
can give them a run for passion
and tradition. If Kentucky brings
up Adolph Rupp, Indiana can
quickly counter with Bob
Knight. Few fans get as worked
up about the game as those in
the Bluegrass State — unless
you happen be among those
hoops-crazy Hoosiers.
“There’s always been a special
aura around and about Indiana
to me,” said coach Tom Crean,
“and I would say the same thing
about Kentucky.”
With a dozen national titles
between them (seven for the
Wildcats, five for Indiana), this
is about as good as it gets with-
out actually being at the Final
Four. Throw in some enticing
subplots — from Crean leading
a remarkable turnaround in
Bloomington after the storied
program fell on hard times, to
Calipari positioning Kentucky
for another title run with his lat-
est one-and-likely-done dream
team — and there’s no doubt
the Georgia Dome will be rock-
in’ for this South Regional semi-
final.
But this is merely a prelude
for the top-seeded Wildcats
(34-2). Unless they are cutting
down the nets in New Orleans,
this season will be judged a fail-
ure.
“You’re supposed to win every
game by 25,” Calipari said. “If
you’re winning by 15, what’s the
issue? What’s going on with the
program? If you lose, God for-
bid, lose one, how can we lose
this game?”
Fourth-seeded Indiana (27-8)
handed the Wildcats one of their
defeats, a buzzer-beating 73-72
victory a couple of weeks before
Christmas. While that was a
mere speed bump for Kentucky
on the way to finishing No. 1 in
the rankings, the thrilling win
was a huge boost to Indiana’s
self-esteem.
Yep, the Hoosiers are back.
“I feel like we’re playing with
a lot more confidence than we
were playing with back then,”
said junior forward Christian
Watford, who hit the winning 3-
pointer against the Wildcats, a
shot that has been replayed over
and over on both sides of the
Ohio River.
Back in 2002, Indiana made a
surprising run to the national
championship game, held in the
same mammoth building where
the Hoosiers face the Wildcats.
But that was a rare blip of suc-
cess in the post-Knight era.
Mike Davis didn’t last. Kelvin
Sampson was forced out by alle-
gations of serious NCAA viola-
tions. Taking over a program in
tatters, Cream’s first team went
6-25 and managed only one win
in the Big Ten.
Over the last two seasons, it
was still difficult to detect even
a blip of light at the end of the
tunnel. The Hoosiers went a
combined 22-41 overall, just 7-29
in conference play.
“When you’re coming off what
we’ve dealt with the last couple
of years, you have no choice but
to treat every game as the most
important game,” Crean said. “If
you do that enough, it leads to
moments like this.”
Kentucky won 24 straight be-
fore losing to Vanderbilt in the
championship game of the
Southeastern Conference tour-
nament. In a way, that might’ve
helped the Wildcats, removing
the burden of a winning streak
before they headed off to the
NCAAs. They barely broke a
sweat in their first two games.
“Their team is clicking on all
cylinders,” Crean said.
The Hoosiers coach is most
impressed by the way Calipari
— for the third year in a row —
has molded a collection of high
school stars into a powerhouse
college team.
Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-
Gilchrist and Marquis Teague
could very well be the latest
batch of Kentucky blue-chippers
to stop off in Lexington for only
a year on their way to the NBA.
But they hardly come across as a
bunch of kids worried about in-
dividual stats at the expense of
the team’s success.

points and Dieng anchored
Louisville’s stifling defense with
seven blocked shots, helping
the Cardinals knock off top-
seeded Michigan State 57-44
Thursday night in the West
Regional semifinals.
Louisville (29-9) smothered
the NCAA tournament’s best-
shooting team with its matchup
zone, getting good pressure
from its guards up top and
some big swats by Dieng, one
of the nation’s top shot-block-
ers.
The Cardinals relied on 3-
point shooting in the first half
and went inside the second to
befuddle the Spartans, earning
a trip to the West final against
Marquette or Florida on Sat-
urday.
Michigan State (29-8) started
slow and never got going
against Louisville’s amoebic
defense, shooting 28 percent
while being outscored 20-14
inside by the leaner Cardinals.
Dieng finished with five
points, nine rebounds and had
three steals. Peyton Siva over-
came a rough shooting night —
four points on 2-of-9 shooting
— with nine assists.
Draymond Green had 13
points and 16 rebounds in his
final game for Michigan State
and Brandon Wood added 14
points.
This sweet matchup of top
programs featured two of col-
lege basketball’s best short-
preparation coaches.
Pitino has used his speed-the-
opponent-up system to reach
the Final Four five times, be-
coming the first coach to lead
three different schools to the
national semifinals. Once past
the NCAA tournament’s first
week, he’s had a knack for guid-
ing his team farther along the
bracket, advancing to the re-
gional final all 10 times he’s
gotten a team to the semifinals.
Tom Izzo has been supremely
consistent in 17 years at Michi-
gan State, building teams that
can handle the rigors of the Big
Ten or switch to greyhound
mode when the opponent plays
fast. He’s been as consistent as
any coach in the game, leading
the Spartans to the Final Four
six times, including the 2000
national title, and 10 trips to
the regionals round the past 15
years.
Izzo played the right hand
the last time these two basket-
ball brains met, taking the
Spartans to the 2009 Final Four
after they found a way to break
Louisville’s pressure.
Pitino had something up his
sleeve this time.
With Michigan State bogging
the game down, the Cardinals
struggled early, missing 12 of
their first 13 shots. They
snapped out of it by hitting 3s.
Florida 68, Marquette 58
PHOENIX — Bradley Beal
scored 21 points to lift Florida
to a victory over Marquette and
set up Gators coach Billy Dono-
van with a meeting against his
old boss, Rick Pitino, in the
West Regional final.
The seventh-seeded Gators
(26-10) expanded a six-point
halftime lead to double digits,
then held off third-seeded Mar-
quette (27-8) to take their sec-
ond straight trip to the regional
final. Last year, they lost to
Butler. This time, they meet
Louisville and Pitino.
Beal, a freshman who has
NBA written all over him, shot
8 for 10 and had six rebounds
and four assists.
Marquette got 15 points from
Jae Crowder and 14 from fellow
senior Darius Johnson-Odom,
but the Golden Eagles exited
the tournament in the round of
16 for the second straight year.
Ohio State 81, Cincinnati 66
BOSTON — Deshaun Tho-
mas scored 26 points and Jared
Sullinger had 23 points and 11
rebounds to lead second-seeded
Ohio State to a victory over No.
6 seed Cincinnati, putting the
Buckeyes in the East Regional
finals.
Aaron Craft added 11 points
— all in the second half — with
five assists and six steals, tak-
ing charge during a 17-1 second-
half run that turned a four-point
deficit into a double-digit lead.
Cashmere Wright scored 18
and Sean Kilpatrick had 15 for
the Bearcats, who were at-
tempting to match Big East
rival Syracuse by beating a Big
Ten opponent to advance to the
round of eight. The top-seeded
Orange advanced earlier Thurs-
day by beating fourth-seeded
Wisconsin at the TD Garden.
It’s the first trip to the region-
al finals for Ohio State (30-7)
since 2007, when it lost in the
national championship game to
Florida.

The Associated Press
ST. LOUIS —Ohio is happy to
make room for anyone who
wants tojumponthebandwagon.
Just don’t expect the Bobcats
(29-7) to buy into that whole lov-
able underdog thing.
Yes, they realize they’re the
13th seed, the only “little guy”
left in a tournament that now
looks like a who’s who of college
basketball. They’re well aware it
wouldtake themanother century
or two to match top-seeded
North Carolina’s tradition —
they’re in the regional semifinals
for the secondtime, while the Tar
Heels have lost count of how
many times they’ve been here.
But they don’t much care.
“Nobody in our locker room
feels like we’re a Cinderella
team,” D.J. Cooper said Thurs-
day. “We feel like we cancompete
with anybody on the national
stage.”
Even North Carolina (31-5),
their opponent tonight in the
Midwest Regional semifinal.
“They played some big-time
opponents and haven’t been con-
cerned about the name on the
front of the jersey,” North Caroli-
na coach Roy Williams said.
“They have just played.”
It would be easy to stereotype
Ohio as one of those plucky little
schools that catches a hot streak
and a little bit of luck, but the
Bobcats don’t look a whole lot
different thanthey didduring the
regular season. Sure, their 3-
point percentage is markedly bet-
ter than it was during the regular
season, as is their free throw per-
centage.
But Ohio has been playing the
same type of nasty, pressure de-
fense all year. Just ask Louisville,
which needed a furious rally at
the end of the game to hold off
the Bobcats 59-54 back in No-
vember.
Ohio is forcing more than 17
turnovers a game, and ranks
fourth in the country in steals
(9.3). Opponents are averaging
just 62 points, and the Bobcats
have held10 to 55 or fewer. South
Florida, another Big East mem-
ber, was held to 56 in the third
round.
Offensively, no one’s figured
out a way to contain the silky
smooth Cooper, who averaged 20
points, six assists and four re-
bounds in Ohio’s first two tourna-
ment games.
“D.J. Cooper of course, be-
cause he’s really a gifted kid who,
the last couple games, has really
been dominant for them,” Wil-
liams said when asked what con-
cerns himmost about Ohio. “But
they’re really a good basketball
team. They guard you, they take
the ball away from you, they re-
bound the basketball.”
Adding to the challenge is
North Carolina likely will be
without dazzling point guard
Kendall Marshall, who had sur-
gery Monday to insert a screw in
the right wrist he broke when he
was fouled on a drive against
Creighton last Sunday. The cast
is off Marshall’s wrist, but he is
still wearing a brace, hasn’t prac-
ticed and said Thursday that if
the game were that night, he
wouldn’t be able to play.
“We have planned as if he’s go-
ing to play, and then obviously
you got to have some type of con-
tingency plans in your mind in
terms of adjustment of offensive
and defensive strategy,” Ohio
coach John Groce said. “But it
does makeit difficult because, ob-
viously, he makes them a differ-
ent team.”
With Dexter Strickland, Mar-
shall’s backup, out since January
with a knee injury, that leaves the
Tar Heels with freshman Stilman
White or Justin Watts. White, de-
scribed by Williams as “a wacko,”
appears to be the more likely op-
tion.
ThoughWhite has playedinall
but four of North Carolina’s
games, he’s logged double-digit
minutes only once. He’s scored
23 points and dished out 19 as-
sists, numbers Marshall comes
close to matching in one game.

52.9 points per game.
Syracuse reached that many points with
9 minutes to play but there were two lead
changes and two ties still to come.
Wisconsin, which averaged 7.7 3-pointers
per game and has a season high of 15, hit
one from beyond the arc on six straight
possessions in the second half, the last of
those by Taylor with 7:03 to play that gave
the Badgers their last lead of the game,
59-56.
Syracuse went ahead for good on a spin
move by Waiters with 6:03 to play, but the
lead was never more than three points.
Gasser made two free throws with 31
seconds left to bring Wisconsin within 64-
63.
The win was No. 890 overall for Jim Boe-
heim, third on the all-time list, and it was
his 48th in the NCAA tournament, break-
ing a tie for fifth place with John Wooden.
Fair, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward who
was the Orange’s fifth-leading scorer at 8.3
points per game, was 7 for 27 from field
over the six-game stretch. The Orange had
been struggling offensively as well, failing
to reach 60 points three times in their last
seven games.
Syracuse won again without starting cen-
ter Fab Melo, who was declared ineligible
for the tournament by the school just days
before the Orange opened with a shaky win
over 16th-seeded North Carolina-Asheville.
The 7-foot Melo missed three games in Ja-
nuary, one of which was a loss to Notre
Dame.
The Badgers were trying to reach the
regional final for the first time since 2005.
Wisconsin, which basically uses a six-
man rotation, was in foul trouble right
away with Mike Brueswitz and Berggren
both picking up two personals within the
first 9 minutes. The Badgers took a 17-11
lead about a minute later, but Syracuse
went on a 7-0 run capped by a 3-pointer by
Waiters with 8:43 left.
A 3 by Taylor gave Wisconsin a 23-22
lead with 5:37 left in the half. Syracuse
went on an 11-0 run to get the pro-Orange
crowd in TD Garden into the game. Fair
and Waiters had four points each in the run
and Jardine capped it with a 3 with 2:28
left.
Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan didn’t call a
timeout during the run because his players
had already used two in the opening min-
utes, the first when Ryan Evans was
trapped on the baseline 5:08 into the game
and the second with 11:13 left when Gasser
had trouble inbounding the ball. Syracuse
took the Badgers off the hook near the end
of the half when Rakeem Christmas fouled
Gasser taking a 3 as the shot clock ran out
with 30 seconds left — he made two free
throws — and then by turning the ball over
after a timeout with 15 seconds to go. Tay-
lor turned that into an easy layup with 3
seconds remaining that made it 33-27.

ORLANDO, Fla. — Charlie Wi
felt a lot better walking off the
golf course compared with his
last round.
So did Tiger Woods.
Coming off a final round at In-
nisbrook in which he made a 13
on one hole, Wi hit an 8-iron over
the water to 6 feet for birdie on
the 18th for a 6-under 66, giving
hima share of the leadwithJason
Dufner in the Arnold Palmer In-
vitational.
It’s the fourth time Dufner has
been atop the leaderboard after a
round during the Florida swing
— except that none of those
rounds have been on Sunday.
The last time Woods was seen
on the PGA Tour, he was being
driven away in a golf cart after
withdrawing in the middle of the
final round at Doral with sore-
ness and swelling in his left
Achilles tendon.
Woods, a six-time champion at
Bay Hill, shot a 69 without break-
ing a sweat, much less breaking
any body parts. There was noth-
ing particularly special about this
round, except for a 30-foot birdie
putt that swirled around the cup
at the15th, and a couple of three-
putt bogeys that kept his score
from being lower.
“I didn’t really do anything
great today,” said Woods, who
had only two approach shots in-
side 15 feet on the par 3s and par
4s. “I was just solidall day. I drove
the ball well, hit my irons decent
and putted all right. It’s just one
of those days where not a lot was
going on.”
Maybe not in his group.
Behind him, though, it was a
different story.
Phil Mickelson was all over the
place, going from a bunker to a
magnolia tree on his way to an
unlikelypar; hittinga tee shot out
of bounds for double bogey; hit-
ting into the water for another
double bogey; and somehow es-
caping with a 73.
InthegroupbehindMickelson,
AnthonyKimmadeonlytwopars
onthe backnine for a 32 that shot
him up the leaderboard. Kim fol-
lowed two birdies with two bo-
geys, made two more birdies and
then hit 5-iron on the 17th hole
for an ace. He was leading until a
pair of bogeys on the back nine
gave him a 69, a good start for a
guy who has been in the tank
most of the year.
“I’ve been running my head in-
to a brick wall,” Kim said. “So I
moved away from the brick wall,
and now I can swing and make
some birdies out here.”
Nick Watney was on the oppo-
site side of the course, and not as
many people saw his 68. He was
pleased to see some putts go in,
whichhas contributedtohis slow
start this year.
“I putted really well and it’s
nice to do that because that’s
been my Achilles this year,” Wat-
ney said.
This is Woods’ last tournament
before the Masters, where he has
not won since 2005.

PITTSBURGH—Evgeni
Malkin scored twice, James Neal
had four assists and the Pitts-
burgh Penguins clinched a play-
off spot with a 5-1victory over
the Nashville Predators on
Thursday night.
Chris Kunitz, Matt Cooke and
Pascal Dupuis also scored to
help Pittsburgh pull within a
point of the NewYork Rangers
for the top spot in the Eastern
Conference with nine games
remaining. Marc-Andre Fluery
made 29 saves for his NHL-
leading 40th victory.
Pittsburgh captain Sidney
Crosby was held without a goal
for the12th straight game and
failed to score a point, but it
hardly stopped the Penguins
fromwinning their ninth
straight home game to keep the
heat on the Rangers.
Nashville’s Alexander Radulov
scored in his return to the NHL
after four years in Russia, but the
Penguins picked apart Predators
goalie Pekka Rinne. The league
saves leader allowed two goals in
the first 5 minutes.
Nashville hopes Radulov will
take some of the pressure off the
always busy Rinne as the fran-
chise gears up for the postsea-
son. The talented 25-year-old left
the Predators after the 2007-08
season to go home to Russia,
where he won two MVPs and
one title while playing for the
KHL’s Salavat Yulayev Ufa.
Radulov re-wrote the KHL
record book —he’s the league’s
career goals leader —before
Nashville general manager Da-
vid Poile lured himback to the
teamthat took himin the first
round of the 2004 draft. He
made an immediate impact,
scoring his first NHL regular-
season goal since March 20,
2008, when he beat Fleury on a
rebound midway through the
second.
One problem, all it did was cut
Pittsburgh’s lead to 4-1. While
Radulov might have become the
best player in Russia, Malkin has
developed into arguably the best
player on the planet.
Malkin needed less than 90
seconds to score in his fifth
straight game, beating Rinne
with a knuckling slap shot from
the right circle to give Pitts-
burgh a quick lead. Rinne ap-
peared to be in position to make
the save only to watch the puck
deflect off his glove and into the
net.
Less than 3 minutes later the
lead was 2-0 as the red-hot Du-
puis deflected a Kris Letang shot
fromthe point between Rinne’s
legs. Dupuis’ 22nd goal of the
season extended his points
streak to a career-best eight
games.
And just like that the NHL’s
highest-scoring teamwas off the
races.
Cooke made it 3-0 early in the
second period following a nice
drop pass fromNeal, whose four
assists were a career-high. Ku-
nitz added his 22nd later in the
period when his crossing pass
attempt directed at Crosby de-
flected off Nashville defenseman
Shea Weber’s skate and into the
net.
Flyers 2, Capitals1
PHILADELPHIA—Matt
Read and Wayne Simmonds
scored shootout goals to lift
Philadelphia past Washington.
Claude Giroux scored his 27th
goal for the Flyers, and Alex
Ovechkin had his 33rd for the
Capitals.
Read scored on the first shot
of the shootout against Braden
Holtby, and Matt Hendricks beat
Ilya Bryzgalov on Washington’s
first attempt. Giroux and Ovech-
kin were both denied and anoth-
er round came up empty for both
teams. Simmonds scored, and
Bryzgalov stuffed Troy Brouwer
to preserve the win.
Bryzgalov stopped 30 shots
and improved to 9-1-1with a 1.23
goals-against average in March.
The Capitals did pick up a
point and have 81, putting them
one ahead of Buffalo for eighth
place in the Eastern Conference.
Lightning 3, Oilers 2
TAMPA, Fla. —Teddy Purcell
scored in the sixth round of a
shootout, and TomPyatt had
two goals in regulation in Tampa
Bay’s victory over Edmonton.
Steven Stamkos and Martin
St. Louis also scored in the extra
session.
Ladislav Smid pulled Ed-
monton even at 2 with 3:47 left
in regulation with his first goal
in 38 games.
Linus Omark also scored for
the Oilers. It was the first time
that Edmonton’s Nikolai Khabi-
bulin, who stopped19 shots,
played in Tampa since Game 7 of
the 2004 Stanley Cup finals,
when he helped the Lightning
beat Calgary 2-1to win the
team’s only NHL championship.

round of a shootout in the Min-
nesota Wild’s comeback victory
over the Calgary Flames.
Dany Heatley and Darroll
Powe scored in regulation for the
Wild. Josh Harding stopped 27
shots and all four Calgary shots
in the shootout to hand the
Flames their fourth straight loss
Lee Stempniak and Anton
Babchuk scored for Calgary,
which failed to gain ground in
the race for a playoff spot in the
Western conference.
Powe tied it at 2 with 7:37 left
in the third when his shot trick-
led over the goal line. Officials
originally ruled no-goal, but
changed the call after a replay
review.

games go and how I’m feeling
each game,” Munroe said. “I ex-
pect to play two, three if need
be.”
Considering Saturday’s game
is at 7:05 p.m. followed by a 3
p.m. start onSunday, Hynes said
that would be a difficult turn-
around for Munroe to play both.
He also expressed confidence
in Killeen, who has made three
starts in his rookie season and is
1-2, to step in with a strong per-
formance when needed.
“In my time here we never
played a guy three in three,”
Hynes said. “We feel like we al-
ways have another goalie that
can play.”
Considering a goaltender
doesn’t skate up and down the
ice like a forward, what is it
about playing three games in
three days that is difficult?
Several things, Hynes said,
and they’re all related to mental
and physical factors.
“The goalie is the one player
that’s on their feet for 60 min-
utes. They play the entire game
and don’t get that break,” he
said. “It’s also a lot harder on
their groin with the pushing off
and side to side. It’s a lot harder
than it is for a player skating
out.”
A goaltender is also taxed
mentally throughout a game be-
cause he has to be tuned in the
entire time, Hynes added.
Regardless of the mental and
physical demands that come
with the position, Munroe has
enjoyed being the Penguins go-
to guy since Brad Thiessen was
recalled to Pittsburgh late last
month.
For the month of March, Mun-
roe is 5-2 and he has allowed just
three goals in his last two starts.
On the season, he is 17-6-3 and
has only lost four times since the
start of 2012.
“It’s been nice to get back to
the mentality of not wondering
if you’re going to play, but know-
ing you are and preparing ac-
cordingly,” Munroe said. “It’s
been a couple of years since I’ve
beeninaroutinelikethis andI’m
feeling good.”
Heading into a three games in
three days stretch this weekend
with a healthy lineup, Wilkes-
Barre/Scranton Penguins head
coach John Hynes isn’t left with-
out a big decision.
It’s unlikely that he will start
goaltender Scott Munroe for all
three games, but the question is
when will Munroe sit and when
will backup Patrick Killeen get
the nod?
Hynes said Munroe will start
tonight’s game against Adiron-
dack, but after that it’s up in the
air.
For now.
“We’ll probably look to get Pa-
trick in a game, but I don’t know
if that will be Saturday or Sun-
day,” Hynes said after Thurs-
day’s practice at Coal Street.
Munroe said he’s started three
games in three days in the past,
but even he admitted the situa-
tion will have to play itself out
over the weekend.
“We’ll have to see how the

mitted to Mark Sanchez. But Te-
bow gives the Jets the option to
run offensive coordinator Tony
Sparano’s wildcat offense — the
one that confused teams while in
Miami with the Dolphins — and
provides an intriguing presence
when games are on the line.
“Timis anoutstandingfootball
player, and we can use him,”
Ryan said. “He’ll fit our wildcat
package. As a defensive coach, I
knowhowhard it is to defend the
wildcat. We can take it to another
level with Tim. We will have
things for Tebow each week.”
Consider that fair warning.
“What we’ve seen from him,
you’ve got to watch every time
he’s in there,” Jets defensive end
Mike DeVito said. “He has the
ability to throw the ball and a
great ability to run the ball, so
any role we put him in, it’ll keep
defenses on their toes.”
DeVito and the rest of the Jets
know that from experience. Te-
bowled a 95-yard winning touch-
downdrive against NewYork last
November, scoring on a 20-yard
scramble with less than a minute
remaining. That set off a string of
stirring comebacks as the Bron-
cos rode Tebow’s incredible late-
game play —despite his ugly me-
chanics and passing stats — all
the way to the playoffs, including
an overtime win over the Pitts-
burgh Steelers in the opening
round.
Long before all that, Tebow al-
ready had developed a faithful
following that overlooked his
flaws and focused on his leader-
ship and ability to come through
in the clutch. He’s bringing those
same qualities to New York, but
he’ll be in a different role.
“They want me to come in and
compete and get better, and get
better as a quarterback and to
help the team any way possible,”
Tebow said Wednesday night.
“Whatever that role is, I will do
my best every time I step on that
field and give my heart and soul.”
Sanchez will get the snaps as
the starting quarterback, and
Ryan and general manager Mike
Tannenbaum have told anyone
who’ll listen that he is their un-
questioned No. 1 guy under cen-
ter.
“Mark is a great competitor,”
Ryan said. “He’s our starting
quarterback. We’re incredibly
fortunate to have two young
quarterbacks with playoff experi-
ence and playoff wins. Mark has
taken us to two AFC champion-
ship games in three years. That
speaks volumes about him. He is
just hitting his stride.”
But Sanchez also is coming off
a shaky seasoninwhichhe hadas
many touchdown passes as turn-
overs: 26. His decision-making
and leadership came under fire
by fans, media and even some
anonymous players in the offsea-
son. After a quick flirtation with
the idea of chasing Peyton Man-
ning, the Jets issued a huge vote
of confidence to Sanchez by giv-
ing him a three-year contract ex-
tension.
But less than two weeks later,
New York traded for Tebow — a
player with a rock-star persona
and an impressive resume smat-
tered with comeback wins. Just
how secure Sanchez’s job is re-
mains to be seen once he throws
his first interception or has a bad
drive. But what the Jets envision
is Sanchez leading the offense
and Tebow running the wildcat
formation when they need a
spark.
“If our offense is sputtering,
and we have, say, three three-
and-outs, and we roll this out
there and it’s successful, who
knows?” Tannenbaum said on
1050 ESPNRadioonThursday. “I
think it will just depend on the
game and the situation.”
Third-and-long? Put Tebow in
to make defenses dare him to
throw.
Fourth-and-goal? Try to tackle
the guy, who’s built more like a
fullback at 6-foot-3 and 245
pounds.
Oh, he’s in the wildcat, which
Sparano so adores? Well, defens-
es need to decide if he’s going to
take off running, hand it off or
catch defensive backs napping
with a toss over their heads.
So, it could be five snaps a
game. Or, seven. Maybe even
nine or 10. One thing’s for sure:
Tebow gives the Jets their first
true multipurpose threat since
Brad Smith, who left as a free
agent last offseason.

plaining his decision, that noth-
ing is as critical for the league
right now as the safety of players
and real concern about concus-
sions.
In the current climate, those
issues seem to permeate every
decision made at NFL headquar-
ters.
“They’re not unrelated. You
can certainly see the rules of the
National Football League have
changed over the years. What
used to be considered normal
player conduct that could result
in serious injury has been ex-
pressly prohibited by the rules,”
Sen. Dick Durbin said in a tele-
phone interview Thursday.
“Teams are dramatically more
sensitive now to concussions
and howsoon a player is ready to
play again. It shows awareness of
the fact that what happens on a
football field is more than a
game. Some of these injuries can
have an impact on a person’s life.
It also is an indication that those
of us, as fans, should hold these
leagues to a higher standard.”
Durbin, an Illinois Democrat
and the assistant Senate major-
ity leader, is organizing a Judi-
ciary Committee hearing to ex-
amine whether bounties in ma-
jor sports should be considered a
crime. He plans to invite wit-
nesses from the NFL, along with
officials from the NBA, NHL,
NCAA and Major League Base-
ball.
At an October 2009 House
hearing on brain trauma in the
NFL, Goodell was taken to task
by lawmakers for not doing
enough about concussions amid
a growing body of medical litera-
ture linking head injuries in foot-
ball with brain disease. That set
in motion a series of changes to
the league’s policies on head in-
juries — and they keep on com-
ing.
On Wednesday, a few hours af-
ter the NFL announced its un-
precedented penalties against
the Saints, the chairman of the
competition committee, Atlanta
Falcons president Rich McKay,
talked about proposals that will
be considered next week at the
owners’ meetings in Palm
Beach, Fla. Among them:
• Allowing each team to des-
ignate one player per week who
can go on the inactive list be-
cause of a concussion and be re-
placed on the roster.
• Expanding the rule that pro-
hibits horse-collar tackles to also
have it cover quarterbacks who
are in the pocket.
• Expanding the protection of
defenders from crackback blocks
by also deeming them defense-
less players who cannot be hit in
the head or get hit by someone
leading with a helmet.
“The protection of the players
is the big thing,” New York Jets
coach Rex Ryan said. “You don’t
have a league without the play-
ers.”
Goodell’s stern punishment of
those involved in the Saints’
bounty system sent a message to
everyone in the NFL: Do not en-
courage deliberately injuring
players. Goodell also was harsh
because of attempts to cover up
the bounties.

staffing shuffle in
early stages
NEW ORLEANS — A person
familiar with the situation says
there are three strong
candidates on the Saints staff
to step in as interim coach:
defensive coordinator Steve
Spagnuolo, offensive
coordinator Pete Carmichael
Jr. and offensive line coach
Aaron Kromer.
As the Saints try to regroup
from penalties handed down by
the NFL for running a bounty
program, the person said
Thursday it’s still too early to
tell how reassignments on the
coaching staff and in the front
office will shake out.
The person spoke to the
Associated Press on condition
of anonymity because the
Saints have not announced
their plans.
The league suspended Sean
Payton for a year, general
manager Mickey Loomis for
eight games and assistant head
coach Joe Vitt for six.
New Orleans is figuring out
how to move on.

said.
He praised the Braves organization,
calling Bobby Cox “the greatest manag-
er any of us will ever know,” thanked
team executives John Schuerholz and
Frank Wren for building a perennial
winner and fought back tears as he turn-
ed to his teammates.
“I’ve been thinking about this and the
reason I stayed around is you guys,”
Jones said. “I played on teams where
clubhouse cohesion wasn’t there. That
never happened with you guys.”
Around baseball, Jones was praised
for this long, consistent career, which
included the NL MVP award in1999, an
NL batting title in 2008, seven All-Star
games — and, quite possibly, will in-
clude an induction ceremony at Cooper-
stown.
Even fans of the rival NewYork Mets,
who were continually battered by Jones
as crowds in the Big Apple tried to rat-
tle him by chanting his actual name
(“Larry! Larry! Larry” was a familiar
chant at old Shea Stadium), offered up
nothing but respect.
Jones already reciprocated by nam-
ing one of his children Shea.
“He’s a great ballplayer who has al-
ways been a Mets nemesis,” said New
York fan John Ring, speaking before
Mets’ spring training game in Port St.
Lucie, Fla. “I mean, he just tore them
apart. He’s been an asset to the game,
but as Mets fans we never wanted to see
him in the lineup.”
Mets third baseman David Wright
grewup wanting to be like Jones, which
didn’t change after they both wound up
in the big leagues.
“He’s been one of those guys where I
always looked across and tried to take
away some of the things from his game
and apply it to mine,” Wright said. “He’s
been so consistent, so good for so long
and been part of a lot of great times. It’s
going be a little odd looking across
there and not seeing Chipper in uni-
form, that’s for sure.”
New York Yankees shortstop Derek
Jeter, whose17-year stint with one team
is surpassed only by Jones among ac-
tive players, has always been impressed
by the way the Atlanta player carries
himself: a wad of tobacco in his jaw, a
batting glove always dangling out of his
back pocket when he took the field.
“He just looks like a ballplayer, you
know? His actions, his mannerisms, ev-
erything he does,” Jeter said. “I really
can’t say enough good things about
him. The way he’s gone about his busi-
ness, his consistency, how he took care
of himself, what he means to the team.
He could flat-out hit. He’s a Hall of Fam-
er, for sure.”
He should be a first-ballot selection,
according to Cox, who attended the
news conference with the only other
manager Jones will have in his big
league career, current Braves skipper
Fredi Gonzalez.
Schuerholz, the former general man-
ager and nowteampresident, and Wren
are the only GMs of the Jones era. Sta-
bility meant a lot to the third baseman,
who never seriously considered leaving
the Braves.
“To have two top executives and only
two managers at one table after all
these years says a lot about this orga-
nization,” Jones said. “There have been
times when I could have gone into free
agency to see if the grass is greener, but
it never was.”
While other players came and went,
Jones was always the one constant in
the clubhouse.
“He was the face of the franchise,”
said former teammate Andruw Jones,
who’s nowwith the Yankees. “You don’t
see it too much any more. It’s hard for
players to stay with one organization.”
No matter what happens in his final
season, Chipper Jones will go down as
one of the game’s greatest switch-hit-
ters, a guy who could hit for average
(.304 in his career) and power (454
homers and 1,561 RBIs).
Shortly after reporting for what will
be his final spring training, Jones mar-
veled that he was still with the Braves
with his milestone birthday coming up
in April.
“Never in my mid-20s would I have
given myself a snowball’s chance to be
in camp and have a job at 40 years old,”
Jones told The Associated Press. “But I
like to think I’ve kept myself in pretty
good shape over the years. The skills
are still there to go out and get it done. I
don’t know for how much longer, but
we’re going to ride it as long as we can.”
That ride lasts one more season.
The Braves said Jones hopes to re-

TAMPA, Fla. — Move over
Red Sox-Yankees, there’s a new
rivalry brewing in baseball.
The Washington Nationals
are tired of Phillies fans taking
over their ballpark, so they’re
trying to ban those red-clad
rowdies from purchasing tick-
ets for the first series between
the teams in May.
Last month, the Nationals
launched a “Take Back the
Park” initiative designed to lock
out Phillies fans. The team
made tickets for a three-game
series on May 4-6 available only
to season ticketholders and lo-
cal fans who reside in Washing-
ton, D.C., Maryland or Virginia.
“Our campaign ignites what
should be a natural rivalry be-
tween a great young team in
Washington and an established
veteran team in Philadelphia,”
Nationals chief operating offi-
cer Andy Feffer told The Associ-
ated Press. “This is an opportu-
nity to give our fans the chance
to make Nationals Park unique-
ly ours — it’s our park, our
team, our town and our time,
and we want the hometown
crowd to be here to be a part of
it.”
The initiative received more
attention in Philadelphia than
in D.C. It was front-page news in
the Philadelphia Inquirer and a
hot topic on sports talk radio.
“The Nats, their manager and
their fans are doing a lot of
squawking for a team that has
accomplished nothing,” said
Glen Macnow, afternoon host
on 94-WIP FM in Philadelphia.
“Win a couple of games, show
you’ve got more than just poten-
tial and get back to us.”
The ticket campaign was just
the start. Some of the Nationals
then started talking trash in
spring training.
Manager Davey Johnson said
he prefers his starting rotation
over any in the league, adding
that his top three pitchers
match up with Philadelphia’s
star-studded cast. There aren’t
many who would choose Ste-
phen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez
and Jordan Zimmermann over
Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Cole
Hamels.
But the Phillies weren’t of-
fended.
“He should take them, be-
cause that’s his only option,”
Lee said. “It’s what he’s got to
do.”
Johnson’s boast may put
some added pressure on his
young pitchers.
“Those guys have established
their reputation and they’re big-
name guys,” Gonzalez said. “We
want to try and stay with them,
try and compete with them,
keep humble and fly under the
radar and let everyone assume
what they want to assume. That
speaks highly of us that Davey
would say that. It’s an honor.
“At the same time, it’s a lot of
shoes to fill.”
The Phillies have captured
five straight NL East titles, won
the 2008 World Series and had
the best record in the majors
each of the last two seasons.
The Nationals, on the other
hand, haven’t had a winning re-
cord since 2003 when they were
the Montreal Expos.
It didn’t stop Washington’s
Brad Lidge from making this
bold statement on the team’s
website.
“Probably the most talented
team I’ve ever been on, and I’ve
been on some great teams,”
Lidge said.
Lidge is one of three Nation-
als who earned a World Series
ring in Philadelphia. Outfielder
Jayson Werth and reliever Chad
Durbin also played for the ‘08
Phillies.
Laynce Nix made a reverse
move, traveling north on I-95
from Washington to Philadel-
phia.
“It felt like home games for
the Phillies,” he said of games at
Nationals Park. As for the brash
talk coming fromthe Nationals,
Nix simply shrugged it off.

Pa. jobless rate steady
Pennsylvania’s seasonally adjusted
unemployment rate was 7.6 percent in
February, unchanged from the January
rate, the state Labor & Industry De-
partment said Thursday. The U.S. rate
was 8.3 percent.
The state’s unemployment rate was
down 0.4 percentage points from Feb-
ruary 2011.
Seasonally adjusted total nonfarm
jobs in Pennsylvania were up 16,700 in
February to 5,717,600.
Nationally, new claims for unemploy-
ment benefits fell again last week to
348,000, a new four-year low as the
economic recovery continues to accel-
erate.
Mortgage rates on rise
The average U.S. rate on a 30-year
fixed mortgage rose above 4 percent for
the first time in five months. The sharp
increase suggests the window to buy or
refinance a home at historically low
rates is closing.
Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said
Thursday that the rate on the 30-year
loan jumped to 4.08 percent, up from
3.92 percent the previous week. A
month ago, it touched 3.87 percent, the
lowest since long-term mortgages
began in the 1950s.
The average on the 15-year fixed
mortgage rose to 3.30 percent, up from
3.16 percent last week and a record low
of 3.13 percent two weeks ago.
Movie-going down in U.S.
Ticket sales for movies shown
around the globe rose 3 percent in 2011
to $32.6 billion, thanks largely to
growth in booming markets like China.
U.S. and Canadian sales fell.
The Motion Picture Association of
America said Thursday that theatrical
revenue from the U.S. and Canada
dropped 4 percent to $10.2 billion as
attendance fell last year.
International ticket sales rose 7 per-
cent to $22.4 billion.
iPhone tops in Canada
Research In Motion, maker of the
BlackBerry, has been ousted from the
top spot for smartphone shipments in
its home market of Canada for the first
time, trailing Apple’s iPhone.
RIM, based in Waterloo, Ontario,
shipped 2.08 million BlackBerrys last
year in Canada, compared with 2.85
million units for Apple, data compiled
by IDC and Bloomberg show. In 2008,
the year after the iPhone’s debut, RIM
outsold Apple by almost five to one.

P
LAINS TWP. – A noted econo-
mist told members of the Grea-
ter Wilkes-Barre Chamber of
Commerce on Thursday that
the nation’s economy is “improving.”
“But it’s not going gangbusters,” said
Jay Bryson, Ph.D., global economist for
Wells Fargo Securities.
Bryson addressed about 100 chamber
members duringa lunchmeetingat The
Woodlands, outlining his take on where
the national and global economies are
and offering predictions and advice.
Bryson said economic growth in
Pennsylvania appears to be positive at
present, whichhesaidis consistent with
the expansion that has taken hold in the
overall U.S. economy. He credited shale
gas drilling for much of the improve-
ment.
“Over the past few years, shale gas
production has ramped up significantly
inPennsylvania, whichcouldbe helping
to boost employment in the common-
wealth,” he said.
Bryson provided a report done by
Wells Fargo on the shale industry in
Pennsylvania, offering three different
scenarios. Depending on how well the
economy performs, Bryson predicts the
state could see anywhere from 570,000
to 825,000 new jobs by the year 2020.
He said Pennsylvania’s economy has
been lagging behind the rest of the U.S.,
but the shale industry has helped bring
it back. The question is how long it can
be sustained.
“It’s hardfor metoseethis area’s econ-
omy booming if the U.S. economy isn’t
booming,” Bryson said. “If the nation’s
economy continues to grow, this area
may lag a little behind.”
During his presentation, Bryson said:
•Growth in consumer spending like-
ly will remain historically slow.
• Since that is two-thirds of the total
economy, overall growth will lag.
• Private sector hiring is strong, but
the public sector has seen huge layoffs.
• The federal budget deficit and
world oil prices are major concerns.
Bryson said gasoline prices likely will
hit $4 per gallon, but barring a major in-
cident with Iran, they probably won’t go
to $5 per gallon.

Economist Jay Bryson of Wells Fargo Securities predicted Thursday Pennsylvania’s economy will continue to grow,
but slowly.

Drilling aids area growth, economist tells chamber

NEW YORK — Since the
credit crisis of 2008, everyone
has been waiting for the banks
to start lending money again.
It’s finally happening, but
there’s a catch: Businesses are
afraid to spend it.
Bank loans to businesses
grew 10 percent last year after
dropping 19 percent in 2009 and
9 percent in 2010, according to
the Federal Reserve. JPMorgan
Chase, Bank of America and
Wells Fargo confirmed the
growth in their latest financial
results.
But much of the loan growth
comes from lines of credit, not
traditional loans. And instead of
tapping available credit to pow-
er up plants, open factories and
hire people,
businesses are
waiting.
At the same
time, they are
hoarding cash.
JPMorgan, the
nation’s largest
bank, is holding
a record $200
billion in busi-
ness deposits,
up 26 percent
last year alone. Wells Fargo and
Bank of America also say depos-
its from middle-market busi-
nesses have soared.
“Our business customers are
feeling optimistic,” says Perry
Pelos, head of commercial bank-
ing for Wells Fargo. “But I’m not
seeing any boom yet because
they are still a little uneasy
about the future.”
Bank loans play a vital role in
powering what economists call
a virtuous cycle. Banks lend to
companies, which spend to
open factories to create wid-
gets. Plants mean jobs, which
leads to more money in people’s
pockets to spend. It re-energiz-
es the economy.
Small and midsize businesses
depend on bank loans to grow
far more than large corpora-
tions, which can pay for their
plans by selling bonds or stock
in the financial markets.
On a bank’s books, a line of
credit that a business can tap as
needed counts the same as a
traditional, lump-sum loan.
While they don’t break out the
numbers, banks say businesses
are opening lines of credit but
are skittish about drawing on
them.
Lending up,
but not biz
spending

LOSANGELES—Does the econom-
ic recovery actually have legs? Long
ones, according to the Conference
Board, whose index of leading econom-
ic indicators (including jobless claims)
continued to perk up in February in the
biggest increase in nearly a year.
The index, which includes improv-
ing measures such as income and sales,
was up 0.7 percent last month to 95.5
after rising 0.2 percent in January and
0.5 percent in December. That’s the
most substantial advance in 11 months
and the highest point since June 2008.
Fueling the uptick: a promising jobs
market, with the unemployment rate at
a three-year low and first-time claims
for jobless benefits falling last week to a
four-year low, according to a Labor De-
partment report Thursday.
Buildingpermits are up, accordingto
the index, as are stock prices, which
late last month helped the Dow Jones
industrial average close above 13,000
for the first time since the financial cri-
sis. And the country’s consumers are
spending more this year — expendi-
tures that make up the largest chunk of
economic activity.
The Conference Board gauge antici-
pates what the economy will look like
three to six months in the future.
The “continued broad-based gains ...
confirm a more positive outlook for
general economic activity in the first
half of 2012,” Conference Board econo-
mist Ataman Ozyildirimsaid in a state-
ment.
Consumer expectations are still mut-
ed, though, he said, as is industrial pro-
duction and neworders for those facto-
ry-made goods. His colleague, econo-
mist Ken Goldstein, added that an un-
expectedly warm winter may have
given an added boost to spending and
sentiment.

First Full Last New
March 30 April 6 April 13 May 20
We've now had
temperatures in
the 70s on seven
of the past 10
days, and again
this afternoon,
readings will
easily rise to
nearly 25
degrees above
normal. The
warmest temper-
ature on record
for March in our
area is 85, set
back in 1998. I
do not think it'll
get that warm
this month. In
fact, today will
probably be the
last day this
month with
highs in the mid
70s. Today's
forecast high is
normal for May
31. Indeed, it is
normal for the
weather to be
abnormal and
this month was
simply meant to
be this way by
the random
nature of how
weather patterns
evolve and at
times persist.
- Tom Clark
NATIONAL FORECAST: Warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico flowing northward ahead of a storm
system will result in showers and thunderstorms from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes. Some strong
to severe storms will be possible. Much of the East will continue to experience well above normal
temperatures as well. A few showers will fall over the northern Rockies.
