Big changes are coming
this fall for telephone users
based in Northeastern and
Central Pennsylvania.
Ten-digit dialing for
all owners of a telephone
number in the 570 area
code will begin Sept. 21.
A month later, a new 272
area code will be rolled out
in the region.
Starting Sept. 21, if a
caller dials only the sev-
en-digit telephone num-
ber, he or she will hear a
recorded announcement
stating they must hang up
and redial the number us-
ing the area code plus the
seven-digit number. This
recording will be available
permanently.
The Pennsylvania Pub-
lic Utility Commission an-
nounced the mandatory
changes on Thursday, the
culmination of a nearly
three-year old plan that
was approved July 15, 2010
by the commission when it
was informed that num-
bers in the 570 area code
10-digit dialing to start in Sept.
President
leads push
for gun laws
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama
urged lawmakers Thursday to remember the
children gunned down in America and not “get
squishy” in the face of powerful forces against
gun control legislation, as supporters struggle
to win over moderate Democrats before a Sen-
ate vote expected next month.
Obama, flanked by grim-faced mothers who
have lost their children to guns, said Washing-
ton must do something after the tragic mass
shooting in Newtown, Conn., three months
ago. He called out to the families of four chil-
dren killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School
sitting in his audience.
“Shame on us if we’ve forgotten,” Obama
said. “I haven’t forgotten those kids.”
“Shame

we’ve

HARRISBURG — A Kingston
woman was one of the people
linked to a $2.1 million prescrip-
tion-drug trafficking ring that
stretched into Northeastern
Pennsylvania from a physician’s
office in New York City, state
and federal authorities said
Thursday.
Natalie Gurinovich Petrov, 24,
of East Walnut Street, was one of
49 people charged in “Operation
Script King” that focused on
Oxycodone prescriptions being
filled at hundreds of pharmacies
across New York, New Jersey
and in the Pennsylvania coun-
ties of Monroe,
Northampton
and Lehigh.
P e t r o v ,

book page
identifies her

counts of corrupt organizations,
and one count each of acquisi-
tion or obtaining a controlled
substance by fraud, criminal use
of communication facility and
criminal conspiracy.
She remained jailed Thursday
at the Monroe County Prison
for lack of $10,000 bail. Online
court records indicate she had
two speeding violations but no

T
wo religious feasts were observed throughout the Wyo-
ming Valley and beyond on Thursday. At top, Pat Reeder
washes the feet of the Rev. Cheryl Cavalari during the Maundy
Thursday Service at the Shavertown United Methodist Church.
Also called Holy Thursday, the Christian observance falls in
the week preceding Easter Sunday and commemorates Jesus’
last supper with his apostles. At right, Sam Greenberg settles
in for a Passover lunch at the Jewish Community Center of
Wyoming Valley in Wilkes-Barre on Thursday. The Passover
meal was served with no leavened bread or food with leaven-
ing agents. Guests were served roast chicken, roast potatoes,
vegetables, fruit and matzah wafers. Passover is the Jewish
feast commemorating the emancipation of the Israelites from
slavery in ancient Egypt.

Some in the Wyoming Valley
say the fight for same-sex rights
has become a battle for civil
rights, a change in definition
that might win recognition and
benefits for gay couples.
“It’s basically the new civil
rights movement, and people
want to be on the right side of
history,” Kyle Kreider, associ-
ate political science professor
at Wilkes University in Wilkes-
Barre said Thursday.
Others, including an area
clergyman noting his church’s
theology, say the issue is not at
all the same. Either way, the is-
sue evokes strong opinion.
Even if the U.S. Supreme
Court chooses to sustain the
Defense of Marriage Act of
1996 — and Kreider said he
believes it will be overturned —
Gay rights cases before court
inspire range of views locally

Like any other morning,
44-year-old Thomas Maloney
received the day’s mail on
Good Friday 1936.
Unlike others, an unfamiliar
cigar box wrapped in brown pa-
per arrived at his home in Wil-
kes-Barre Township’s George-
town section.
His daughter Margaret re-
called in 1986 that her father
thought the package was a gift.
As Maloney pried open the
lid, the box exploded.
Maloney and his 4-year-old
son, who was standing nearby,
later died from injuries they
suffered in the blast.
They were two of the three
people who died in what was
dubbed the Good Friday cigar
box bombings at the hands of
Michael Fugmann, then 52.
A total of six people received
similar packages.

PLYMOUTH — Police
arrested a man they allege
threatened three people with a
gun at a house on Blair Street
late Wednesday night.
Steven Paul Nelson, 34, of
Pugh Street, Edwardsville,
is charged with three counts
each of simple assault, reck-
less endangerment, terroristic
threats and harassment, and
one count each of disorderly
conduct and firearms not to be
carried without a license.
Police allege Nelson showed
up at the house of ex-girlfriend
Denise Shaw just after 10 p.m.
According to police, the in-
cident unfolded in this way:
Nelson banged on a door while
screaming he wanted a jacket
returned. Shaw called Jade
Perillo, who resides on Blair
Street, to come to her house
because Nelson was causing a
disturbance.
Perillo told police that Nel-
son threat-
ened to kill
him, accord-
ing to the
criminal com-
plaint.
Perillo ran
inside Shaw’s
r e s i d e n c e
when he saw
Nelson reaching into his pick-
up truck, police said. Police
allege Nelson aimed a gun at
Shaw, Perillo and a girl before
driving away.
Edwardsville police later
spotted Nelson running into
his residence. He came outside
holding a .45-caliber handgun,
the complaint says.
Nelson does not have a gun
permit, police said.
He told police he wished
Perillo had followed himhome
because he would have put six
bullets into Perillo’s body, ac-
cording to the complaint.
Nelson was jailed at the Lu-
zerne County Correctional Fa-
cility for lack of $2,500 bail. A
preliminary hearing is sched-
uled on April 3 before District
Judge Donald Whittaker in
Nanticoke.

FedEx worker suspected
in prescription drug thefts
PLAINS TWP. — An em-
ployee at the FedEx distribution
center in Pittston Township has
been charged with stealing pre-
scription drugs that were being
shipped to a pharmacy.
Christopher Graff, 25, of
East Drinker Street, Dunmore,
was charged by the state Attor-
ney General’s Office with theft
and acquisition of a controlled
substance. He was arraigned
Monday by District Judge Di-
ana Malast and released on
$5,000 unsecured bail.
Graff could not be reached
for comment Thursday morn-
ing.
According to the criminal
complaint:
Graff, while working at the
FedEx distribution center, re-
moved packages being shipped
to a Price Chopper Pharmacy.
Graff allegedly admitted he
opened the packages and took
bottles of Norco containing 500
tablets and Vicodin containing
200 tablets on Nov 14, a bottle
of Norco containing 500 tablets
on Nov. 28, a bottle of Norco
containing 100 tablets on Dec.
6 and a bottle of Norco contain-
ing 500 tablets on Dec. 7.
Graff told investigators he
took the prescription medica-
tions to make money to pay his
half of the rent and to have ex-
tra spending money, the com-
plaint says.
Investigators allege Graff
sold the prescription medica-
tions to another man in Lacka-
wanna County and was paid
$125 to $800 per delivery, ac-
cording to the complaint. Graff
allegedly told investigators he
profited about $2,000.
FedEx was notified about the
missing prescription bottles on
Nov. 14. Security cameras were
installed in the shipping area of
the distribution center, where
Graff allegedly was recorded
moving packages from a con-
veyor belt, the complaint says.
A preliminary hearing is
scheduled on April 2.

Neil Horn said Laflin resident
Mike Costanza was “a friend
to everybody,” and when he
walked into a room, you knew
he was there.
Costanza, 59, died Tuesday,
and Horn and others said he will
missed by many in the commu-
nity, in part, because of his im-
pact through volunteer service.
Costanza was involved in
many community groups, such
as Music Box Theater, the Cath-
olic Youth Center, Big Broth-
ers/Big Sisters, Wilkes-Barre
East Rotary, Bishop Hoban
High School Parents Club, and
boys and girls basketball at St.
Nicholas/St. Mary’s Elemen-
tary School. He was a PIAA of-
ficial and member of its board of
directors.
His daughter, Lauren Costan-
za Haynes, wrote a brief tribute
to her father on Facebook that
generated many comments
frompeople whose lives Costan-
za had touched.
She wrote:
“We have lost
a great hero.
Loved and re-
spected by so
many, and the
greatest man
I have known.
With a heavy
heart, I want to
inform everyone that my father,
Michael Costanza, passed away
late (Tuesday) night. He fought
a strong battle the past few
years, and is no longer suffering.
I will miss him more than words
can say, but promise to carry on
his legacy of love, hard work,
humor, and looking out for the
underdog. You taught me well,
daddio, I only hope I can make
you proud.”
Horn, who knew Costanza for
more than 30 years, said that
when Costanza got involved
with an organization or commit-
tee, he took over. Costanza also
worked for Horn, the vice presi-
dent of operations at McCarthy
Tire, as the company’s vice pres-
ident of corporate sales.
“When he got involved, he
got involved heavy,” Horn said,
adding that Costanza always in-
sisted he work with him on ev-
ery project or group. “Mike had
two faults — he couldn’t say no
to anybody and if you gave him
a microphone, you could never
get him to give it back.”
Horn recently visited with
Costanza and noted that despite
all he was going through, he
never lost his sense of humor.
“He went through hell the last
two years,” Horn said.
Ron Evans, executive direc-
tor of Catholic Social Services,
said Costanza volunteered with
Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the
Bridge for more than 20 years.
He was a Big Brother to a young
man for most of those years, Ev-
ans said.
“This is really very sad,” Ev-
ans said. “Mike was one of the
first people I recruited for our
advisory board, and he helped
take us to another level.”
Evans said Costanza was in-
strumental in expanding the
Bowl for Kids’ Sake event to be-
come the organization’s major
fundraiser.
“He would do anything for
you,” said Evans. “He was very
loyal for a long, long time. He
will be greatly missed.”

Fire damages Plymouth apartment building
PLYMOUTH — A fire dam-
aged a five-unit apartment build-
ing in the borough Thursday
night and one person was taken
to the hospital to be checked out.
PlymouthHose Co. No. 1Chief
Jerry Bolesta said a first-floor
resident of the building at the
corner of Academy and Shawnee
streets woke up to smoke and
flames in another room.
Everyone made it out of the
building safely, and the resident,
whose name was not given, was
taken to the hospital for an ex-
amination, he said. The man ap-
peared to be unharmed, Bolesta
said.
“He took in some smoke,” said
the chief. “They took him to get
checked out, (but) he was alert
and awake and alert. Everything
was OK.”
Flames destroyed part of the
apartment unit’s rear corner.
The other apartment units were
undamaged, Bolesta said.
Dozens of neighbors flocked
around the site. Charles Schrad-
er, who lives in the building,
leaned up against an adjacent ga-
rage with only a jacket over his
chest. His knees were shaking.
Before emergency crews arrived,
said Schrader, he tried breaking
down the door and smashed a
window on the side of the house
to let out smoke.
Responders originally thought
the resident was trapped in the
building, but later found he
hadgone outside to stand in the
street with the rest of the onlook-
ers.
Hanover Township and Plym-
outh borough firefighters re-
sponded to the blaze around
7 p.m. The cause of the fire is
undetermined and a state police
fire marshal had been called to
investigate, Bolesta said.

Body found in Wilkes-Barre’s Miner Park
WILKES-BARRE — Police
on Thursday night confirmed
that a body was found in Miner
Park earlier in the day.
A woman called The Times
Leader inquiring about the dis-
covery, saying she saw a detec-
tive standing over the body of
a man who appeared to be de-
ceased at about 12:45 p.m. She
said she sawblood on the scene.
Police said detectives are still
investigating and no further in-
formation was available.
WILKES-BARRE — A deal
to sell the downtown theater
and surrounding retail space
to real estate developer Joe
Amato avoided foreclosure on
the complex and a delay on
the acquisition.
His company, City Centre
L.P., purchased the $8.4 mil-
lion mortgage that had been
called back by the group of
banks that issued it.
Amato, of Moosic, could
not be reached for comment
Thursday.
But William Moore, presi-
dent of the Greater Wilkes-
Barre Chamber of Business
and Industry, said Amato was
eager to get to work.
The chamber’s South Main
Street Redevelopment LLC
sold its minority interest to
City Centre for $1, according
to a deed in lieu of foreclosure
recorded March 22 by the
Luzerne County Recorder of
Deeds.
South Main Street took
out the mortgage that was as-
sumed by University Corners
LLC in 2008 as the chamber
looked to reduce its financial
exposure in the $31 million
project it spearheaded along
East Northampton and South
Main streets.
The chamber and William
Geary Jr., whose Los Angeles,
Calif.-based Carlsberg Proper-
ties Inc. managed University
Corners, voted to transfer the
deed to move along the sale
without going through fore-
closure, Moore said Wednes-
day.
“It would have delayed the
transfer of the property to Mr.
Amato unnecessarily,” Moore
said.
Geary, of Manhattan Beach,
Calif., could not be reached
for comment.
He filed for bankruptcy in
California and faced financial
and legal problems related
to other developments while
attempting to fill the retail
space around the anchor-ten-
ant R/C Wilkes-Barre Mov-
ies 14. With the aid of the
city, he received $1 million in
funds provided by the state
from gambling revenues to
complete the interiors of the
street-level store fronts.
The city, with the permis-
sion of the state Department
of Community and Economic
Development, split the funds
into a grant and loan that was
to be repaid in full next year
by Geary’s company. In order
SCRANTON —A woman whose ab-
duction as a teenager and recovery nine
months later made international head-
lines said she had about 100 messages
she’d like to impart to an audience at
the Scranton Cultural Center on Thurs-
day.
“But I’d have to say the main one is:
‘Hope!’ I think that encompasses every-
thing — hope that we can overcome
our individual struggles, hope that to-
morrow is going to be better than to-
day, hope that anything can happen,”
child safety advocate Elizabeth Smart
said in an interview at the launch of
the Commonwealth Health’s chapter of
Healthy Woman.
Smart was abducted from her home
in Utah at knifepoint at age 14 in June
2002 by Brian Mitchell, held captive by
him and his wife, Wanda Barzee, for
nine months, and repeatedly sexually
assaulted. Smart’s sister, who recog-
nized the voice of the kidnapper, identi-
fied him as a homeless man the family
once had do work for them.
A biker who saw a sketch of Mitch-
ell on “America’s Most Wanted” TV
show spotted him and alerted police in
March 2003. Mitchell and Barzee were
apprehended and Smart was returned
to her family. Mitchell was tried in 2010
and is serving a life sentence. Barzee
was sentenced to 15 years and is sched-
uled for release in 2016.
“I think, for me, I have forgiven them.
But in the same breath, that doesn’t
mean I would invite them over for Sun-
day dinner,” Smart said. “I think that
whatever goes unpunished in this life
will certainly be made up for in the
next.”
Smart, 25, and still living in Utah, has
been speaking publicly and advocating
for child safety for two years. “What
happened to me, I don’t think anybody
should have to experience that. … If
my speaking out helps raise awareness,
which will cause change to happen,
then I want to do that.”
One thing she is speaking about is
radKIDS — a personal empowerment
safety education program for children.
The “rad” stands for “resist aggres-
sion defensively.” Kimberly Pellicano,
Healthy Woman coordinator, said she
and another certified instructor hope to
begin offering local classes soon.
Information about radKIDS and
women’s health issues were available at
the new chapter launch. Pellicano said
the Wilkes-Barre and Berwick chapters
recently merged to include all eight
Commonwealth Health hospitals.

Candidates OK’d for ballot
A Luzerne County
judge on Thursday ruled
two candidates who have
circulated nomination
papers will have their
names appear on the bal-
lot for the May primary.
Plains Township resident Ronald
Oley filed court papers on March 18,
challenging the petitions of Ned Evans
and Anthony C. Thomas, who are
seeking positions on the Wilkes-Barre
Area School Board.
Oley claimed Evans had an insuffi-
cient number of valid signatures on his
petitions while Thomas did not timely
file a statement of financial interest
with the school board secretary, as
required by law.
Judge Michael Vough, after hearing
testimony regarding each candidate’s
petitions, ruled in favor of Evans and
Anthony, noting there was no miscon-
duct in either case.

Woman
sentenced
for fatal
hit-run
By SHEENA DELAZIO
sdelazio@timesleader.com
Danielle castrignano, 21,
struck wheelchair-bound
corey Ryan, 20, with her car.
WILKES-BARRE — For Re-
becca Wahlers, June 15, 2012
was the worst night of her life.
She was with
friends and her
boyfriend, Co-
rey Ryan, 20,
walking across
South River
Street in Wil-
kes-Barre when
a vehicle driv-
en by Danielle
Cas t r i gnano
came at them.
Wahlers jumped out of the
way at the last minute as Cas-
trignano’s vehicle struck Ryan,
who was in a wheelchair.
“I sawhimget hit …I sawhim
hit the pavement,” Wahlers said
Thursday at a hearing at which
Castrignano was sentenced to
one to two years in state prison
on a related charge. “Seeing
(the) expression on his face … it
was the worst night of my life.”
Castrignano, 21, of Holiday
Drive, Kingston, was sentenced
on a charge of accidents involv-
ing death or personal injury to
which she had pleaded guilty in
February.
Ryan, who was paralyzed in a
car crash in 2011, died June 29
in Hospice Community Care in
Dunmore.
Castrignano told investigators
she thought she had struck a
shopping cart, according to the
criminal complaint.
City police said Castrignano
drove away after striking Ryan
and turned onto the Market
Street Bridge into Kingston. A
surveillance camera recorded
the vehicle on the bridge.
Police recovered Castrigna-
no’s vehicle parked outside the
Woodlands Inn & Resort in
Plains Township. She turned
herself in to police several hours
later.
“I’m truly, truly very remorse-
ful,” Castrignano told Judge
David Lupas on Thursday. “No
sentence that I am given will be
equivalent to (Ryan’s) life.”
Castrignano said she was not
using drugs or alcohol the night
of the accident and she believed
she had struck a shopping cart.
“I truly didn’t know that I hit
a person,” Castrignano said, tell-
ing Ryan’s family that she can-
not express how sorry she is for
the accident.
Ryan’s mother and sister also
testified Thursday, telling Lu-
pas about Ryan, whom they
Teen charged in fatal 2011 wreck released
WILKES-BARRE – A
year and a half after being
declared a delinquent and
sent to live in a group home,
an 18-year-old charged in a
wreck that killed his 16-year-
old friend is free.
Adam Fredmund appeared
before Luzerne County
Judge David Lupas, where
his attorney on Thursday
asked that his supervision be
terminated because he has
completed his court-mandat-
ed programs.
Fredmund, 16 at the time
of the incident, was charged
in juvenile court with homi-
cide by motor vehicle, un-
derage drinking and other
charges after the July 18,
2011, crash that killed Brian
Madry of Wright Township
Fairview Township police
and county detectives said
Fredmund had been drink-
ing alcohol at a party before
crashing a 2004 Kia Optima
on Lake Road, an isolated
road in the Glen Summit sec-
tion, early in the morning.
Madrywas a passenger in
the Kia. An autopsy deter-
mined he died of multiple
traumatic injuries.
Fredmund, of Fairview
Township, was declared a
delinquent in September
2011 and then ordered to re-
side in the United Children’s
Home in West Hazleton, a
group home, participate in
drug-and-alcohol counseling,
complete a minimum of 100
hours of community service
and other terms.
On Thursday, Assistant
District Attorney Mamie
Phillips said Fredmund
has done everything Lupas
asked of him and would be
an example to others on how
to handle themselves after
being criminally charged.
“We wish him well … he’s
moving in the right direc-
tion,” Phillips said.
Madry’s parents were pres-
ent in court Thursday, as
was Fredmund’s mother, and
spoke on Fredmund’s behalf.
Lupas said the most im-
portant ingredient in Thurs-
day’s proceeding, as well as
Fredmund’s case as a whole,
has been the support of the
Madry family. “They have
encouraged you to succeed,”
Lupas said. “They have lost a
child, but they are helping to
save another.”
Lupas said Brian Madry
would be proud of the strides
Fredmund has made, as well
as the way his family has
handled a difficult situation.
“You have a bright future,”
Lupas said. “(I hope) you
continue to move forward in
a positive direction.”

RICE TWP. — A Plymouth
man was arrested on charges
he threatened a state police
trooper and a Luzerne County
deputy sheriff with scissors
along Interstate 81.
Herbert Frank Pyle, 49, was
charged with two counts of
reckless endangerment and
one count each of aggravated
assault, simple assault, terror-
istic threats, harassment and
interrupting traffic. He was
jailed at the Luzerne County
Correctional Facility for lack of
$75,000 bail.
State police at Hazleton said
Pyle was walking along the
interstate and stepped over a
guide rail in the area of mile
marker 160 at about 3 p.m. Pyle
displayed scissors to Trooper
Michael Tereska and began
stabbing himself, saying he
wanted to die, state police said.
Pyle held the scissors above
his head and allegedly charged
at Tereska. Pyle was stunned by
a Taser, but he pulled the darts
out of his body while continu-
ing to stab himself, state police
said.
Joseph Christino, an off-duty
county deputy sheriff, stopped
and assisted Tereska. Pyle con-
tinued to fight with Christino
and Tereska until he was hand-
cuffed, state police said.
A preliminary hearing is
scheduled on April 3 before
District Judge Ronald Swank.
PLYMOUTH — Police
investigating gunfire near the
Susquehanna River arrested a
man who allegedly threatened
to harm an officer.
Jimmy Jovan Bell, 20, of
High Street, Plymouth, was
arraigned Thursday on two
counts of disorderly conduct
and one count each of firearms
not to be carried without a
license and terroristic threats.
He was jailed at the Luzerne
County Correctional Facility for
lack of $15,000 bail.
Police said they stopped Bell
and two females while inves-
tigating gunfire near Beade
Street and the river just before
5 p.m. Wednesday. One of the
women told police she had a
gun, while Bell and the other
woman claimed they did not
have any weapons, according to
the criminal complaint.
Bell walked around a cruiser
when an officer spotted the
grip of a gun in his jacket, the
complaint says. Police said in
the complaint they recovered
a 9mm handgun from Bell’s
jacket.
Bell threatened the officer
saying, “You’re dead, you don’t
know who you’re (expletive)
with. You’re dead, come at me,”
the complaint alleges.
Police learned one of the
guns was taken from a resi-
dence without permission, they
said. The two women were not
charged.
A preliminary hearing is
scheduled on April 3 before
District Judge Donald Whit-
taker.
HANOVER TWP. — A
woman charged with leaving
seven children unsupervised
in a residence that was later
condemned waived her right
to a preliminary hearing before
District Judge Joseph Halesey
on Tuesday.
Ajajoy Kathryn Slater, 33, of
First Street, Hanover Township,
waived a single count of endan-
gering the welfare of children
to Luzerne County Court. She
remains free without bail.
Township police allege they
found seven children unsu-
pervised in her residence on
Dec. 12. A teenager was in the
residence that was filled with
garbage, dirty diapers and
debris, police said.
A township code enforce-
ment officer condemned the
building.

“My heart longs to see my

she wonders what kind of hus-
band and father he would have
been.
Corey Ryan was injured in
an accident in which a friend
was drinking and driving. Deb-
bie Ryan said her son, who was
paralyzed, began making strides
and recovering to the point
where he was independent, get-
ting an apartment with Wahler’s

“It was supposed to be the

Castrignano’s parents spoke
about their daughter struggling
with an addiction to heroin and
completing a 30-day rehabilita-
tion program.
She was 30 days sober when
the accident involving Ryan
happened and is eager to get
her life back on track, Deborah
Castrignano said.
Deputy District Attorney
Alexis Falvello noted that Dani-
elle Castrignano has been serv-
ing a prison sentence for proba-

other criminal charges against
her, including possessing drug
paraphernalia and arguing with
police officers.
While incarcerated, Falvello
said, Castrignano has had five
misconducts, including two in-
volving drugs.
Lupas said Castrignano’s
state prison sentence will be
consecutive to the probation
violation sentence she is serving
that ends in June.
Castrignano’s attorney, Peter
Moses, compared his client’s
case to other hit-and-runs in the
area in whichw defendants did
not turn themselves in. In three
of those cases suspects have not
been found.
Moses said Castrignano’s case
is different, and she should have
received consideration because
she turned herself in and plead-
ed guilty to related charges.

SEOUL, South Korea — In a show
of force after weeks of North Korean
bluster, the United States on Thurs-
day took the unprecedented step of
announcing that two of its nuclear-
capable B-2 bombers joined joint mili-
tary drills with South Korea, dropping
dummy munitions on an island range.
The announcement is likely to fur-
ther enrage Pyongyang, which has
already issued a flood of ominous
statements to highlight displeasure
over the drills and U.N. sanctions over
its nuclear test last month. But there
were signs Thursday that it is willing
to go only so far.
A North Korean industrial plant
operated with South Korean know-
how was running normally, despite
the North’s shutdown a day earlier of
communication lines ordinarily used
to move workers and goods across
the border. At least for the moment,
Pyongyang was choosing the factory’s
infusion of hard currency over yet an-
other provocation.
U.S. Forces Korea said in a state-
ment that the stealth bombers flew
from a U.S. air base in Missouri and
dropped dummy munitions on the
South Korean island range before re-
turning home. It was unclear whether
America’s stealth bombers were used
in past annual drills with South Korea,
but this is the first time the military
has announced their use.
The statement follows an earlier
U.S. announcement that nuclear-capa-
ble B-52 bombers participated in the
joint military drills.
The announcement will likely draw
a strong response from Pyongyang.
North Korea sees the military drills
as part of a U.S. plot to invade and be-
comes particularly upset about U.S.
nuclear activities in the region. Wash-
ington and Seoul say the drills are rou-
tine and defensive.
North Korea has already threatened
nuclear strikes on Washington and
Seoul in recent weeks. It said Wednes-
day there was no need for communica-
tion in a situation “where a war may
break out at any moment.” Earlier this
month, it announced that it considers
void the armistice that ended the Ko-
rean War in 1953.

New anti-smoking ads out
G
overnment health officials
launched the second round of a
graphic ad campaign Thursday that is
designed to get smokers off tobacco,
saying they believe the last effort con-
vinced tens of thousands to quit.
The ads feature sad, real-life stories:
There is Terrie, a North Carolina
woman who lost her voice box. Bill, a
diabetic smoker from Michigan who
lost his leg. And Aden, a 7-year-old
boy from New York, who has asthma
attacks from secondhand smoke.
“Most smokers want to quit. These
ads encourage them to try,” said Dr.
Tom Frieden, director of the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention.
The CDC campaign cost $48 million
and includes TV, radio and online
spots as well as print ads and bill-
boards.

Mortars kill 10 in Damascus
Mortar shells crashed into an out-
door cafe at Damascus University on
Thursday, killing at least 10 students
in the deadliest of a rising number of
mortar attacks in the heart of the Syr-
ian capital.
The strikes have escalated as rebels
fighting to topple President Bashar
Assad try to enter the city, terrifying
civilians whose support the opposition
needs to advance its cause.
It was unclear who fired the rounds.
The government blamed “terrorists,”
its blanket term for those fighting
Assad’s regime. Anti-regime activists
accused the regime of staging the
attack to turn civilians against the
rebels.
Mortar strikes on Damascus are rela-
tively new in Syria’s crisis, which began
in March 2011 with protests calling for
Assad’s ouster, then evolved into a civil
war. The U.N. says more than 70,000
have been killed in the conflict.

Rate hike
looming
on loans
for college
WASHINGTON — Incoming
college freshmen could end up
paying $5,000 more for the same
student loans their older siblings
have if Congress doesn’t stop in-
terest rates from doubling.
Sound familiar? The same
warnings came last year. But
now the presidential election is
over and mandatory budget cuts
are taking place, making a deal
to avert a doubling of interest
rates much more elusive before
a July 1 deadline.
“What is definitely clear, this
time around, there doesn’t seem
to be as much outcry,” said Jus-
tin Draeger, president of the
National Association of Student
Financial Aid Administrators.
“We’re advising our members
to tell students that the interest
rates are going to double on new
student loans, to 6.8 percent.”
That rate hike only hits stu-
dents taking out new subsidized
loans. Students with outstand-
ing subsidized loans are not
expected to see their loan rates
increase unless they take out a
new subsidized Stafford loan.
Students’ non-subsidized loans
are not expected to change, nor
are loans taken from commercial
lenders.
The difference between 3.4
percent and 6.8 percent interest
rates is a $6 billion tab for tax-
payers — set against a backdrop
of budget negotiations that have
pitted the two parties in a stand-
off. President Barack Obama is
expected to release his budget
proposal in the coming weeks,
adding another perspective to
the debate.
Last year, with the presiden-
tial and congressional elections
looming, students got a one-year
reprieve on the doubling of inter-
est rates. That expires July 1.
Neither party’s budget propos-
al in Congress has money specifi-
cally set aside to keep student
loans at their current rate. House
Republicans’ budget would dou-
ble the interest rates on newly
issued subsidized loans to help
balance the federal budget in a
decade. Senate Democrats say
they want to keep the interest
rates at their current levels but
the budget they passed last week
does not set aside money to keep
the rates low.
In any event, neither side is
likely to get what it wants. And
that could lead to confusion for
students as they receive their
college admission letters and fi-
nancial aid packages.
Without deal by July 1, rate
on new subsidized loans will
double to 6.8 percent.

Mandela hospitalized in S. Africa
JOHANNESBURG — Nelson Mandela
was back in the hospital for the third time
in four months Thurs-
day, and the 94-year-old
former South African
president was reported
to be responding well to
treatment for a chronic
lung infection.
South Africa’s presi-
dency said that doctors
were acting with ex-
treme caution because
of the advanced age of the anti-apartheid
leader, who has become increasingly frail
in recent years.
The Nobel Peace Prize laureate was
admitted just before midnight to a hospi-
tal in Pretoria, the South African capital.
He has been particularly vulnerable to
respiratory problems since contracting
tuberculosis during his 27-year imprison-
ment for fighting white racist rule in his
country.
“The doctors advise that former Presi-
dent Nelson Mandela is responding posi-
tively to the treatment he is undergoing
for a recurring lung infection,” the presi-
dency said in a statement. “He remains
under treatment and observation in hos-
pital.”
Mandela, who became South Africa’s
first black president in 1994, is a revered
figure in his homeland, which has named
buildings and other places after him and
uses his image on national bank notes.

PRETORIA, South Africa —
Oscar Pistorius could compete
at this year’s world champion-
ships after a South African judge
eased his bail restrictions and
ruled Thursday that the athlete,
who faces a murder trial for the
shooting death of his girlfriend,
can travel overseas to run.
The international athletics
body said that if Pistorius quali-
fies, it had no objections to him
running — an
event that
could eclipse
the stir last
year when he
became the
first double
amputee to
compete at the
Olympics. Pis-
torius’ agent told The Associ-
ated Press soon after the ruling
that the world championships
in Moscow in August could be a
possibility if the runner wanted
to return to the track on his car-
bon fiber blades.
Judge Bert Bam upheld the
Olympic athlete’s appeal against
some of his bail restrictions, but
said the 26-year-old Pistorius
must travel under certain con-
ditions. The athlete could face
a life sentence if found guilty of
murder for the Valentine’s Day
shooting death of Reeva Steen-
kamp.
His passport will be held by a
court while he is in South Africa,
and he can leave the country only
if he provides an itinerary of his
travel plans at least a week before
he is due to leave. Pistorius also
must hand his travel documents
back to the court within 24 hours
of returning home, Bam ruled.
“Based on this (the judge’s
decision), and if he is up for it
and qualifies, the world champi-
onships will definitely be on the
radar,” Pistorius’ agent, Peet van
Zyl, told the AP by telephone.
The judge’s decision was “fair,”
Van Zyl said, but any return to
track would be up to Pistorius,
who hasn’t run competitively
since September and hasn’t
trained for two months. The
worlds are in August, while Pis-
torius’ next court appearance is
June 4.
Although Pistorius’ lawyers
said in the appeal hearing that
he had no immediate plans to
compete, he would likely need
to return to track in the future to
earn money, they said. Pistorius,
widely known as the Blade Run-
ner for his prosthetic legs, did
not attend the court session.
Pistorius says he killed Steen-
kamp accidentally when he fired
shots through a door in his bath-
room in the pre-dawn hours of
Feb. 14, fearing there was an in-
truder in his house.

MORE OBITUARIES, Page 7A
it is only a matter of time until
all states recognize gay unions,
whether in marriage or some
other sort of civil union, he said.
Beth Hartman, of Mountain
Top, has held a lasting relation-
ship with her partner, Sharon
Wall, for 16 years. She also is
chairwoman of the NEPA Rain-
bow Alliance, an advocacy orga-
nization for the region’s lesbian,
gay, bisexual and transgender
residents.
She said that although some
couples have gone to other
states to get married, she wants
her relationship to be recog-
nized where she lives.
The two — separately — pay
for car insurance, buy health in-
surance and file their taxes. She
said these things, and nearly 1,300
other functions, are made easier
for heterosexual married people
through federal legislation.
The Supreme Court heard
two cases this week regarding
gay couples’ rights and recogni-
tion:
• A case involving Proposi-
tion 8, the California law that
forbids gay marriage.
• The case of Edith Wind-
sor, an 83-year-old gay woman
who is fighting for recognition
to avoid paying inheritance tax
for the estate of her spouse, who
died in 2007.
If Proposition 8 and DOMA are
overturned, Kreider said, it does
not immediately mean anything
for Pennsylvanians. The state still
restricts gay unions, and he said
benefits that same-sex couples re-
ceive in spite of state laws would
be few. However, he said, it would
prove the general opinion about
gay marriage has changed drasti-
cally in a short time.
In 1996, when DOMA was
signed into law by then-Presi-
dent Bill Clinton, Kreider said
no states allowed gay marriage.
What started as a trickle has
turned into a deluge of support
for gay rights as a matter of civil
justice, Kreider said.
Kreider agreed that this is one
of the few things those from both
political parties are supporting.
What typically has been strictly a
Democratic rallying cry is seeing
strong support from some in the
Republican Party. “Republicans
are basically falling over each
other to support this,” he said.
In Pennsylvania, gay people
might not announce their orien-
tation because they fear persecu-
tion, said Hartman, adding that
no laws in this state protect gay
people from losing their jobs be-
cause of orientation.
While segments of the nation
seem to be leaning in favor of gay
marriage, the Catholic Church
will maintain its beliefs based on
scripture. Even in the far-off fu-
ture, the church will not abandon
this doctrine, said the Rev. John
Bendik of St. John the Evangelist
Parish, Pittston.
“We, as a Catholic Church,
surely could not participate in
that sort of thing,” said Bendik.
“It’s not our theology.”
The church defines marriage
using the Biblical account of cre-
ation when God told man and
woman to be fruitful and multiply
and then looked at everything he
created and called it good.
Bendik believes the gay-rights
causes are not the same as civil
rights fought for in the 1960s, he
said.
“From my perspective, it’s dif-
ferent than civil rights for persons
of color. It’s radically different,”
said Bendik, referring to basic
rights and respect black people
sought, such as sharing space on
a bus and drinking from the same
water fountain as whites.
Conversely, the Rev. Daniel
Gunn of the St. Stephen’s Episco-
pal Pro-Cathedral, Wilkes-Barre,
said some Biblical teachings are
taken out of context. “If you take
just one verse of scripture out
and hold it up, you can basically
make it say anything you want
to,” Gunn said.
“I’ve known a number of same-
sex couples who have been to-
gether for years, decades, and I
see nothing that would prohibit
themfrombeing legally joined. In
my case, there are many of them
who I would be happy to join,”
Gunn said. “How could I treat
them any differently?”
Though Catholicism opposes
such unions, Bendik said he can-
not discriminate against the peo-
ple. “I’m not one to condemn, but
I’m also not one to condone.
“What we cannot condone is
what can legally be called a mar-
riage,” he said. “The Bible defines
a marriage as man and woman.”
While these two Bible-based
ideologies conflict, social media,
TV and news outlets have helped
to advance the discussion far
enough to reach the high court,
Kreider said.
“We realized there’s really no
difference with them and hetero-
sexuals,” he said. “It’s very hard
to come up with convincing argu-
ments as to why we do not allow
gay people to marry.”

he 30-year-old for-
mer business major
in apartment 308 in
Tower 1 had pulled the
fire alarm to force the building’s
500 students to the outside.
But something happened to foil
James Seevakumaran’s plans for
a massacre at the University of
Central Florida last week.
Credit Seevakumaran’s room-
mate, arabo “B.K.” Babakhani.
When Seevakumaran point-
ed a tactical rifle at him, Mr.
Babakhani, 24, slammed and
locked the bedroom door and
hid behind furniture while dial-
ing 911. When police arrived
prepared for mayhem they
found Seevakumaran had used
his weapon on himself and died.
They also found four makeshift
explosives in his backpack, an
assault rifle, a handgun, high-
capacity ammunition drums
and hundreds of bullets. Plus,
two 22-round magazines were
waiting for the killer in the mail-
room.
The carnage averted at UCF
in orlando could happen any-
where. It already has at other
university towns, at movie the-
aters and on military bases.
and yet, after the carnage in
december that killed 20 chil-
dren and six adults at Sandy
hook elementary in Newtown,
Conn., the shootings of teenag-
ers in Miami’s overtown and
liberty City, the drive-by killing
of a mother talking with a friend
outside her home in liberty
City — after all of that and so
much more from coast to coast
— Congress still seems unable
to ban assault weapons.
These are not quick fixes.
They must be part of a compre-
hensive plan that has to include
more funding for mental health
services and better security at
our schools.
Banning weapons won’t en-
sure that criminals or the men-
tally ill don’t get high-capacity
semiautomatics or any kind of
handgun, for that matter, ille-
gally. But at least it won’t be as
easy. No one should be able to
buy a weapon on the Internet
or at a gun show without the
seller checking the buyer for a
criminal record or whether that
person was institutionalized for
emotional problems.
The National rifle associa-
tion holds the Second amend-
ment sacrosanct — and the
lawmakers who fear the Nra’s
political clout aren’t budging.
yet the vast majority of ameri-
cans — and polls show a ma-
jority of Nra members, too
— want universal background
checks. and the courts have
long upheld that the Second
amendment (like virtually all
other constitutional rights) has
common-sense limits.
let there be no doubt. The
next massacre — like the one
averted at UCF — will hap-
pen because a fearful Congress
was more beholden to the Nra
than to the citizens who elected
them.

OTHER OpiniOn: Gun COnTROL
Time for Congress
to stare down NRA
F
roM The moment it
was conceived, the de-
fense of Marriage act
was indefensible. The
Supreme Court should send it
to the dustbin of history, where
it belongs.
Fortunately, Wednesday’s de-
liberations seemed headed in
that direction, although it’s un-
clear which legal trash chute the
justices will choose. a majority
of them expressed skepticism
that doMa passes constitu-
tional muster. No surprise there.
Judicial experts have been ques-
tioning its validity from the day
President Bill Clinton signed it
into law Sept. 21, 1996.
doMa defines marriage as
between a man and woman and
denies legally married same-sex
couples the rights and benefits
available to other couples. Its
elimination should please both
social liberals and states-rights
conservatives.
doMa brought out the worst
in Clinton, who caved on prin-
ciple to shore up his bid for
re-election. his republican op-
ponent, Sen. Bob dole, had
pushed doMa as a wedge is-
sue after a hawaii court ruling
paving the way toward gay mar-
riage, throwing conservatives
into a tizzy. Clinton’s advisers
were running scared after the
“don’t ask, don’t tell” fiasco for
gays in the military and feared
the president would lose votes
if he stood up to Congress on
doMa.
Clinton reportedly regretted
his decision from the moment
he signed it. When the Supreme
Court decided to take up this
case, he wrote — in longhand
— a column for the Washington
Post saying “the law was dis-
criminatory” and he wished he
had not signed it.
The Supreme Court should
put an end to an obviously dis-
criminatory law.

Early intervention gives kids with autism best chance
aT The age of three,
Josh smiled often. To
the casual observer, he
appeared happy. To the
careful observer, the
smile came from a differ-
ent place than the smiles
of his peers. The smile
often emerged, not from the expected
interactions with parents, peers, and
teachers, but instead when spinning the
wheels of a toy or looking into a ceiling
light. Josh’s smile made him seem happy
on the surface. yet if he was happy, he was
happily unengaged with the rest of the
world around him.
I first met Josh at this age at a school
for children with autism. Josh’s diagnosis
was Pervasive developmental disorder,
Not otherwise Specified (Pdd-NoS), one
of the categories on the autism spectrum.
Josh was one of my 20 clients to receive
speech-language therapy at this school.
I saw him three times each week for
30-minute sessions. Through a combina-
tion of applied behavior analysis and
dIr®Floor-time therapies, we worked to
help Josh shape his fixation with parts of
objects into an interest in sharing things
he discovered – such as what makes a car
go – with others around him. This was not
accomplished by speech-language therapy
alone. It took a team of professionals, in-
cluding classroom teachers, psychologists,
occupational therapists, and Josh’s family
to build his engagement with others.
over time, Josh’s smile was more
readily observed when engaging in eye
contact during an activity with others. he
showed improved joint attention, which
is a child’s ability to share something with
others around them through pointing, eye
contact and other verbal and nonverbal
signals. It is such an important skill that
the lack of it is a possible red flag for
autism in children as young as two years
of age. These red flags have been studied
extensively by amy Wetherby at Florida
State University and her colleagues. The
researchers studied 54 children who were
later diagnosed as either having autism,
developmental disability, or typical
development. during this groundbreak-
ing study, researchers found nine red
flags – lack of appropriate gaze, lack of
warm, joyful expressions with gaze, lack
of sharing enjoyment or interest, lack of
response to name, lack of coordination of
gaze, facial expression, gesture and sound,
lack of showing objects, unusual prosody
or melody of the voice, repetitive move-
ments or posturing of body, arms, hands,
or fingers, and repetitive movements with
objects – that differentiate children with
autism from the other two groups.
The research team is currently gather-
ing extensive evidence on the improve-
ment of those children identified early
using these and other markers.
The implications of this study are for
early identification and intervention for
children with autism. april is National
autism awareness Month and national
data highlight the importance of early
detection and intervention. although
there is currently no cure for autism, early
intervention has been shown to be effec-
tive to help children close the gap between
where they are and where they should
be for their age. It is crucial that children
with autism gain as many skills as possible
as early as possible, because they grow up
to be adults with autism on increasingly
long waiting lists for supported residential
placement. given that the Centers for dis-
ease Control estimated that 1 out of every
88 eight-year-olds were living with autism
in 2008, the critical need for early identifi-
cation and intervention is evident.
In May, the american Psychological
association will enact changes in clas-
sification to the diagnosis categories of
autism. People who are currently diag-
nosed with asperger’s – another classifica-
tion on the autism spectrum – may or may
not continue to be included in the new
categories of autism. Unlike others on the
autism spectrum, people with asperger’s
are by definition without language impair-
ments and have at least an average IQ.
Their impairments fall mostly within the
realm of social interaction. depending
upon the specificity of their symptoms,
some currently diagnosed with asperger’s
will continue to fall within the category
of autism, while others will be classified
with something known as social pragmatic
disorder. Confusion and controversy may
surround these changes, but what will
remain clear will be the need to provide
these individuals with intervention for
social interaction.
a parent is often the first to notice signs
of potential autism, yet these signs will
not always result in a diagnosis of autism.
other diagnoses, such as developmental
delay and language delay/disorder, are
just a few of the possibilities. Warning
signs of atypical development – including
those that involve social interaction –
should be evaluated by a team consisting
of a neurodevelopmental pediatrician,
speech-language pathologist and any
other specialty areas related to the child’s
areas of difficulty, such as an occupational
therapist for fine motor and/or sensory
concerns. even if autism is ruled out, early
identification and intervention can help
with other areas of difficulty and provide
each child the best chance of closing the
gap and achieving their highest potential.

assistant professor of speech-language pathol-
ogy at Misericordia University. She specializes in
child language disorders, literacy, autismspectrum
disorders and fluency disorders.

Writer believes poll
on website is biased
I
was just wondering who puts together
the questions for the online Poll on the
Times leader website. Whoever it is, your
bias is showing. The following question
constantly appears in your poll:
Which of these statements about the
coal industry in Pennsylvania do you
believe to be MoST true?
The coal industry has taken huge
strides to become environmentally
friendly
The coal industry creates high-quality,
high-paying careers for Pennsylvanians
The coal industry represents the best
way to reduce our dependency on foreign
energy
The coal industry has great potential for
economic growth in Pennsylvania.
you cannot proceed in the poll without
choosing an answer. What about those
of us that feel that “none of the above” is
“MoST true.” I realize it’s not a big thing,
but it’s been bugging me for a while.

Secular progressives
have taken over Easter
I
am very upset about the latest attack on
our religious traditions. First it was the
war on Christmas, now it’s the war on eas-
ter. The schools across this country, that
won’t let the students even use the word
easter, are putting us on a path to becom-
ing a godless nation.
The secular progressives continue
to push their agenda. Take for example
Canada and China, where a woman can
have an abortion at any time, for any
reason. The push is on for the same thing
in this country, but believers have prayed,
protested, called their legislators and
did everything they could to defend the
unborn. We must continue this fight and
never waver. I want to remind people that
courage is not the absence of fear, courage
is the ability to do what’s right even when
we’re most afraid, with god’s help.
all Christians know that Jesus paid a
debt he did not owe because we owed a
debt we could not pay. We are all called
to be witnesses to our Faith and to speak
up when this Faith is attacked. Now is the
time to speak up for our beliefs before the
time comes when we’re not allowed to
speak up for them at all.
Wishing everyone a “happy easter.”

ming Valley’s largest manhunt,
police later arrested Fugmann,
who faced a high-profile trial at
which he was convicted of the
April 10 killings and sentenced
to death.
The victims
It all began around 9:30 p.m
April 9, 1936, after Fugmann
purchased cigar boxes at Wil-
kes-Barre stores.
He mailed the bombs from
post offices in Wilkes-Barre and
waited for the bombings to be-
gin.
Prosecutors say Fugmann
had an ill-will toward the re-
cipients – all had been involved
in the mining industry, labor
unions or law enforcement –
though two of the recipients
got the boxes mistakenly be-
cause they had the same names
as two men in the local mining
industry.
After the first bomb explod-
ed, police got out the word to
be on the lookout for similar
boxes.
Former county sheriff Lu-
ther Kniffen, of Wilkes-Barre,
escaped injury when his secre-
tary, Vera Franklin, damaged a
mechanism of one bomb while
trying to open the box.
When Kniffen took the box
from Franklin, the bomb fell
harmlessly onto the floor and
smashed into pieces.
Harry Gouldstone, of Kings-
ton, superintendent of the But-
tonwood Colliery of the Glen
Alden Coal Co., told his fam-
ily to keep an eye out for sus-
picious packages. His family
refused to touch the cigar box
when it arrived and called au-
thorities.
Two other bombs, mailed to
county Judge Benjamin Jones
and to James Gorman, a state
Anthracite Conciliation Board
umpire from Hazleton, were in-
tercepted in Wilkes-Barre and
Hazleton post offices before
they could be delivered.
A sixth bomb wasn’t found
until it exploded around 3:30
p.m., killing recipient Michael
Gallagher of Hanover Town-
ship.
Soon, the Wyoming Valley
was seized by panic. Boxes ar-
riving at homes through the
mail made residents anxious;
some people doused packages
they received with water, ruin-
ing Easter presents, or called
authorities.
The unexploded bombs were
tested for fingerprints and each
were found to contain a 1½-
inch stick of dynamite.
Within a few days, more than
50 suspects had been taken
into custody. Investigators
worked diligently, saying little
about the probe until several
weeks later.
Fugmann’s arrest, trial
On July 1, Fugmann, a for-
mer miner and deserter from
the German army in World War
I, was taken into at a Wilkes-
Barre railroad station on his
way back from treatment for a
mining injury at Moses Taylor
Hospital in Scranton.
The following day, investiga-
tors raided his home at 31 Oak-
lawn Ave., Hanover Township.
Fugmann was charged shortly
thereafter with 10 counts relat-
ing to the bombings.
“My heart is clean, so help
me God,” Fugmann said at his
arraignment before the magis-
trate, Judge John S. Fine.
That September, Fugmann’s
trial began. Monroe County
Judge Samuel Shull presided
over the case that was pros-
ecuted by District Attorney
Leon Schwartz. Fugmann was
defended by attorney Edward
McGovern.
Then came the testimony
and evidence with all fingers
pointing at Fugmann.
A clerk at Schulte’s Cigar
Store on East Market Street
in Wilkes-Barre identified Fug-
mann as the man to whom he
sold cigar boxes. Investiga-
tors found nails in Fugmann’s
home, a foreign brand, that
were the same type used in the
cigar box bombings.
Brown paper matching the
type in which the boxes were
wrapped also was found at Fug-
mann’s home.
Then, dynamite was found
buried in Fugmann’s cellar.
Fugmann was in downtown
Wilkes-Barre the night the box-
es were mailed, and his hand-
writing matched writing on the
outside of the boxes, investiga-
tors said.
Fugmann testified the cigar
boxes were stolen by a man
who later committed suicide
by using dynamite and that
he could not explain how his
handwriting ended up on the
boxes.
Strained relationship
Evidence against Fugmann
mounted when investiga-
tors pointed out a previously
strained relationship with Ma-
loney.
The two men had been al-
lies in forming the United An-
thracite Miners of Pennsylva-
nia. Fugmann eventually had
quit the group, while Maloney
fought for his beliefs and con-
sequently went to jail.
Fugmann’s wife, Cuni, pre-
viously had loaned Maloney
$505, and when Maloney failed
to repay the money, Fugmann
began to make insistent de-
mands for it and complain
about Maloney to the commu-
nity.
On Oct. 7, Fugmann was
convicted of the killings and
sentenced to death by electric
chair.
Fugmann exhausted all ap-
peals, with higher courts up-
holding his conviction.
On July 17, 1938, Fugmann
had a last meal of cheese,
noodle soup, bread, pumpkin
pie and syrup at the Rockview
State Penitentiary.
“I’m paying with my life for
a crime I did not commit,”
Fugmann said before he was
executed.

were running low.
After consideration of public
input and area code relief op-
tions, the commission approved
an overlay plan for the 570 code.
An overlay plan means that
once the existing telephone
numbers in the 570 area code
are exhausted, new telephone
services in that geographic re-
gion will be assigned telephone
numbers with the new area
code, which has been desig-
nated as 272. The geographic
region includes all or parts of
29 counties stretching from the
Harrisburg area in the south
to the Poconos in the east, the
New York state line in the north
and Clinton County in the west.
The original intent was to roll
out the new272 area code in the
summer of 2011, but the imple-
mentation was held off for two
years.
Denise McCracken, a PUC
spokeswoman, said the commis-
sion had two choices when it
came to the area code situation.
It could have split the current
570 region geographically and
forced half the region to change
area codes or it could just re-
quire new phone numbers after
a set date to have the 272 area
code.
The latter option was chosen,
she said, because it impacts few
people.
The 570 area code was estab-
lished in 1998 after phone num-
bers were exhausted in the 717
area code that had served a large
swath of Central and Northeast-
ern Pennsylvania.
With the same situation on
the horizon for the 570 area
code, the North American
Numbering Plan Administra-
tor informed the state PUC of
the plan in 2010 to add the 272
area code as an overlay. North
American Numbering Plan Ad-
ministrator is the neutral, third-
party, area code relief planner
for Pennsylvania.
An overlay will mean that
it’s possible to have one area
code for a home phone and an-
other for a cellphone. Neighbors
would have to dial 10 numbers
whether they’re calling each
other or relatives in Alaska.
Overlays have become more
widely used over the past de-
cade and already exist else-
where in the state.
In the Philadelphia area, 484
has been assigned within the
610 area code since 1999, and
267 has been distributed within
the 215 area code since 1997. In
Western Pennsylvania, the 878
area code soon will be issued in
regions now served by the 412
and 724 area codes.
Bill Moore, the head of the
Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber,
said the switch will be a minor
inconvenience but it will not
cost companies any business.
“If this were 1980, I’d say it’s
complicated, but now it’s com-
monplace,” Moore said. He
came to this area from Connect-
icut, where 10-digit dialing has
been mandated statewide since
2009.
“Businesses have the area
code on letterhead and business
cards, so it won’t be much of a
difference to them,” Moore said.
For new businesses, the costs
of printing materials with the
phone number would have been
a necessary cost anyway.
In an age of cellphones, he
said, 10-digit dialing is becom-
ing the norm; and while it
might be a small inconvenience,
experience has shown him that
people will adapt quickly.

criminal record.
At a news conference at the
U.S. Drug Enforcement Admin-
istration’s field office in New
York City, Pennsylvania Attor-
ney General Kathleen G. Kane
said prescriptions for Oxycodo-
ne were allegedly written by Dr.
Hector Castro from the Itzamna
Medical Center in Manhattan.
Castro’s office manager, Patri-
cia Valera-Rodriguez, was the
contact person for two compet-
ing drug trafficking rings led by
Bryn Stevenson, 29, of Bartons-
ville, and John Romangnolo,
44, of Cresco, in Northeastern
Pennsylvania, Kane said.
Arrest papers linked Petrov to
the Stevenson ring.
Prescriptions sold
Intercepted conversations
showed that Stevenson and Ro-
magnolo both sent names and
personal information of individ-
uals to Valera-Rodriguez, who
then wrote out prescriptions
for Oxycodone in those names,
authorities said. The hard copy
prescriptions were then alleg-
edly sold for $500 each.
Agents said Romagnolo, who
was known as the “Script King,”
traveled to New York and met
Valera Rodriguez at least three
times a week to obtain prescrip-
tions. Between March 2011 and
December 2012, Romagnolo al-
legedly paid Valera-Rodriguez
more than $30,000 for illegal
prescriptions.
According to the criminal
complaint, Stevenson preferred
to have his prescriptions deliv-
ered to Stroudsburg by Valera-
Rodriguez’s husband, Hector
Rodriguez.
Investigators followed Steven-
son on Jan. 15 to Mount Airy Ca-
sino near Mount Pocono, where
he met Valera-Rodridguez and
her husband in their hotel room,
the complaint says.
Once they had the prescrip-
tions, Stevenson and Romagno-
lo allegedly employed numerous
“runners” or “fillers,” who filled
the scripts at multiple pharma-
cies.
Then pills were allegedly il-
legally consumed or sold for
profit throughout Monroe and
surrounding counties. The orga-
nization’s “fillers” allegedly paid
cash, used private insurance or
medical assistance to pay for the
prescriptions.
Kane said Romagnolo and
Stevenson, with the help of
Valera-Rodriguez, kept careful
track of when and where each
prescription was filled, so they
would not draw the attention of
pharmacies or law enforcement.
500 scripts, 70,000 pills
Agents estimate that between
March 2011 and March 2013 the
organizations led by Stevenson
and Romagnolo filled more than
500 prescriptions, using 100 dif-
ferent names. They are allegedly
responsible for illegally obtain-
ing more than 70,000 Oxyco-
done tablets with an estimated
street value of $2.1 million.
Demand for Oxycodone in
Northeastern Pennsylvania was
so high that many pharmacies
ran out of the drug or refused to
fill prescriptions, according to
the complaint.
Over the past two days agents
searched defendants’ homes,
seized more than two dozen
handguns and rifles, five ATVs,
a dirt bike, digital scales, numer-
ous pill bottles, several prescrip-
tions and several thousand dol-
lars in cash.
“Many of the guns seized dur-
ing our searches were loaded
and strategically placed, sug-
gesting that the defendants
were ready to resort to violence
at a moment’s notice,” Kane
said. “The common perception
is that prescription drug abuse
is not a violent issue. Based on
the guns that we have seized, it
is clear that is not the case.”

BOMBING
SUBMITTED PHOTO
At this home on St. Mary’s Road in Hanover Township, Mi-
chael Gallagher was killed in 1936 by a cigar box bomb sent to
him through the mail by Michael Fugmann.
Obama’s event comes as gun
control legislation faces an un-
certainfuture, eventhoughmore
than 80 percent of people say in
polling they support expanded
background checks. Backed by
a $12 million TV advertising
campaign financed by New York
Mayor Michael Bloomberg, gun
control groups scheduled rallies
around the country Thursday
aimed at pressuring senators to
back the effort.
Obama said the upcoming
vote is the best chance in more
than a decade to reduce gun
violence. He encouraged Ameri-
cans, especially gun owners, to
press lawmakers home from a
congressional spring break to
“turn that heartbreak into some-
thing real.”
“Don’t get squishy because
time has passed and it’s not
on the news every single day,”
Obama said.
Moderate Senate Democrats
like Mark Pryor of Arkansas and
Heidi Heitkamp of North Dako-
ta are shunning Bloomberg as a
meddling outsider while stress-
ing their allegiance to their own
voters’ views and to gun rights.
While saying they are keeping
an open mind and that they sup-
port keeping guns from crimi-
nals and people with mental
disorders, some moderates are
avoiding specific commitments
they might regret later.
“I do not need someone from
New York City to tell me how to
handle crime in our state. I know
that we can go after and prose-
cute criminals without the need
to infringe upon the Second
Amendment rights of law-abid-
ing North Dakotans,” Heitkamp
said this week, citing the consti-
tutional right to bear arms.
Heitkamp does not face re-
election next year, but Pryor
and five other Senate Demo-
crats from Republican-leaning
or closely divided states do. All
six, from Southern and Western
states, will face voters whose
deep attachment to guns is un-
shakeable — not to mention
opposition from the still-potent
National Rifle Association,
should they vote for restrictions
the NRA opposes.
“We have a politically savvy
and a loyal voting bloc, and the
politicians know that,” said An-
drew Arulanandam, spokesman
for the NRA, which claims near-
ly 5 million paying members.
The heart of the Senate gun
bill will be expanded require-
ments for federal background
checks for gun buyers, the
remaining primary proposal
pushed by Obama and many
Democrats since 20 first-grad-
ers and six women were shot
to death in December at an el-
ementary school in Newtown,
Conn. Senate Democratic leader
Harry Reid of Nevada has said
there aren’t enough votes to ap-
prove a ban on assault weapons,
while prospects are uncertain
for a prohibition on large-capac-
ity ammunition magazines.
Today, the background checks
apply only to sales by the na-
tion’s roughly 55,000 federally
licensed gun dealers. The Sen-
ate measure is still evolving as
Sens. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.,
Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and
Mark Kirk, R-Ill., use Congress’
two-week recess to negotiate for
additional support in both par-
ties.

MOOSIC — When arriving
at PNC Field in the near future,
it will be hard not to notice
everything that is brand new or
updated at the state-of-the-art
structure.
But there are also old aspects
of the $43 million stadium that
will be on display and were re-
vealed on Thursday afternoon.
The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre
RailRiders unveiled mementos
from the past to signify patrons
of the game. Bricks are now a
part of the sidewalk as fans walk
into the stadium. The bricks
contain names of people and
businesses that were visible when
Lackawanna County Stadium was
first erected in 1989. The names
on these bricks are those who
gave donations by purchasing
season tickets or a ceremonial
brick to help support the sport
even before ground breaking
began in the 1980s.
Some original bricks were kept
in storage and others were lost
over the years. So RailRiders per-
sonnel tracked down the names
with the help of Northeast Base-
ball and these donators are once
again recognized with several
different patches planted in the
ground of PNC Field’s main plaza
and on the left field concourse.
“We wanted to show apprecia-
tion of people in the past. With-
out the names of folks on these
bricks minor league baseball
probably would not be a reality
in Northeastern PA,” RailRiders
president and general manager
Rob Crain said. “But these people
showed vision to know how good
this would be for our area and
this is a great way to honor them.
“It’s a great way for us to show
appreciation of the past and
as we get going here into the
future.”
A WEATHER GUARANTEE
Earlier in the week, the team
posted a video of Crain standing
on the field behind home plate
in shorts and a tee shirt in the
middle of a snow shower. In the
video, Crain said that if the tem-
perature doesn’t crack 60 degrees
for Opening Day on Thursday,
fans in attendance will get a free
ticket to any Sunday through

Jarome Iginla speaks to the
media in Calgary, Alberta,
after being traded to the Pitts-
burgh Penguins on Thursday.
Penguins
the team
to beat?
Trade for six-time All-Star
Jarome Iginla puts Pittsburgh
in prime position for Cup.
PITTSBURGH — Sidney
Crosby knows the Pittsburgh
Penguins will be considered
Stanley Cup contenders so long
as his familiar No. 87 hangs in
the dressing room.
“We’re always in the conversa-
tion as far as favorites,” Crosby
said.
At the moment, a case could
be made the Penguins are the
only ones in it.
Already riding a 13-game win-
ning streak behind the typically
sublime Crosby and a suddenly
responsible defense, Pittsburgh’s
quest for the franchise’s fourth
Cup received a rocket-fueled
boost late Wednesday night
when general manager Ray
Shero acquired six-time All-Star
forward Jarome Iginla from Cal-
gary.
All it took was the rights to a
couple of prospects and a 2013
first-round draft pick, a pittance
for a future Hall-of-Famer still
searching for his first champion-

Goal for Sem
same despite
differences
Henry Cornell returns to lead
a squad much younger and
different than last year’s.

See TENNIS, Page 5B
The differerences this year are
subtle, yet distinct.
There are no boys named
Parkhurst powering their singles
play.
There are new faces up and
down their lineup.
And most noticeably, Wyo-
ming Seminary’s boys tennis
coach is now a woman more ac-
customed to coaching in the col-
lege ranks rather than one of the
most respected tennis guys on
the local circuit.
“I think it’s definitely differ-
ent,” said senior Henry Cornell,
who played No. 3 singles for
Sem last season and will battle
for the top spot in the lineup this
season. “I’ve been playing with
Mike since I was little.”

WASHINGTON — Vander Blue’s buzzer-
beater came at the end of the first half. For
a change, Marquette didn’t need one at the
end of the game.
After sweating through a pair of edge-of-
your-seat comebacks in the NCAA tourna-
ment, Blue and the Golden Eagles figured
out how to put one away early, earning
Marquette’s first trip to the Elite Eight since
2003 with a 71-61 win over Miami on Thurs-
day night.
Blue, who spurred the rallies that beat
Davidson by one and Butler by two, finished
with 14 points. He wasn’t Marquette’s lead-
ing scorer — that was Jamil Wilson with 16
— but it was Blue’s offensive and defensive
energy that pushed the Golden Eagles to a

LOS ANGELES — LaQuinton Ross hit
the tiebreaking 3-pointer with 2 seconds to
play, and Ohio State advanced to the brink
of its second straight Final Four appearance
with a 73-70 victory over Arizona on Thurs-
day night in the West Regional semifinals.
Ross, the Buckeyes’ remarkable reserve,
scored 14 of his 17 points in the second half
for the second-seeded Buckeyes (29-7), who
rallied from an early 11-point deficit and
weathered the sixth-seeded Wildcats’ late
charge for their 11th consecutive victory
since mid-February.
Deshaun Thomas scored 20 points for
Ohio State, and Aaron Craft added 13 be-
fore ceding the Buckeyes’ final shot to Ross.
Craft hit an awfully similar 3-pointer against
Ohio State’s Deshaun Thomas celebrates a field goal against Arizona in
the NCAA men’s basketball tournament Thursday in Los Angeles.

Mets
Bobby Valentine
to work as analyst on SNY
NeW YORK — Former Mets man-
ager Bobby Valentine will be a pregame
and postgame analyst
for 12-15 of New
York’s telecasts on
cable channel sNY
this season.
the network
said thursday that
Valentine will work
Monday’s opener
against san Diego with Bob Ojeda and
Chris Carlin. Valentine was an analyst
for esPN in 2011.
A former manager of texas (1985-
92), the Mets (1996-02), Boston (2012)
and Japan’s Chiba Lotte Marines (1995,
2004-09), Valentine also is the new

CARDiNALs
Musial to be honored
with uniform patch
st. LOUis — the st. Louis Car-
dinals will wear a patch on their
left sleeve this season to honor the
memory of stan Musial.
the Hall of Famer widely considered
the greatest Cardinal player ever died
in January. the Cardinals will debut
the patch in the season opener Monday
at Arizona.
the patch is unusual for one honor-
ing a deceased icon: there is no black,
a nod to Musial’s always-sunny disposi-
tion. it features a red border and Mu-
sial’s No. 6, in red, with his signature
through the number. the background
of the patch is the color of the jersey —
gray for road games, white for home,
and cream-colored when the Cardinals
wear their new alternate jersey.
iNDiANs
Feller to be honored
with annual MLB award
CLeVeLAND — Late Hall of Fame
pitcher Bob Feller is being honored by
Major League Baseball with an annual
award named for him.
the Bob Feller Act of Valor Award
will be given each year to a major
leaguer and Hall of Famer who displays
good character, assists those less
fortunate, supports U.s. servicemen
and women and conducts himself with
dignity on and off the field. the U.s.
Navy will give a companion award to
one service member.
Feller served in the Navy, interrupt-
ing his baseball career to enlist im-
mediately after the Japanese attacked
Pearl Harbor in 1941. Feller did so
despite being eligible for an exemption.
Feller missed four seasons but still
recorded 266 career victories and led
the American League in wins six times
and strikeouts seven times.
A celebrated figure in Cleveland,
Feller died in 2010 at the age of 92.
tigeRs
Detroit will begin
season without set closer
KissiMMee, Fla. — the Detroit
tigers have optioned rookie reliever
Bruce Rondon to triple-A toledo,
leaving the AL champions without an
announced closer as they prepare for
Monday’s opener at Minnesota.
Rondon went 2-1 with a 5.84 eRA
in 13 spring training games with nine
walks and 19 strikeouts in 12 1-3 in-
nings.
Jose Valverde struggled in the
postseason last year and became a
free agent, and the tigers brought the
22-year-old Rondon to camp as his
potential replacement. Manager Jim
Leyland said thursday that any of his
seven relievers could be used to close
games early in the season.
Valentine
Embracing a new role, Cano ready to go for Yanks
By ROB MAADDI
AP Sports Writer
tAMPA, Fla. — Robinson Cano
turned the World Baseball Classic into
a personal display.
there was a backhanded grab and
glove flip to start a double play against
Venezuela. there was a home run he
crushed off the second deck against
italy. And, in the end, there was an
MVP award for helping the Dominican
Republic win the international crown.
“He had a great series,” Yankees
manager Joe girardi said. “they were
pitching around him and he still hit the
ball well.”
None of this is anything new. Cano
already has established himself as the
top second baseman in the majors dur-
ing eight seasons in New York. He’s a
four-time All-star with four silver slug-
ger Awards, two gold gloves and three
straight top-6 finishes in the AL MVP
race.
But, it was a different Cano at the
WBC. Wearing his country’s name on
his chest brought out his leadership.
“Robbie not only played well, but
also he became the leader of that
team,” said Yankees bench coach tony
Pena, who managed the Dominican Re-
public to an 8-0 run in the tournament.
“Robbie led the way. He got everybody
together and told them what was the
purpose of being there. He had an in-
credible series with the bat and with
the way he handled himself with the
team.”
Cano hadn’t shown a vocal side
with the Yankees. He didn’t have to,
either. Derek Jeter is the captain of a
team that features a star-studded cast.
there’s Alex Rodriguez, Mariano Rive-
ra, Mark teixeira, Curtis granderson,
CC sabathia, Andy Pettitte.
Cano simply went about his business
quietly and did it better than anyone.
He’s averaged .314, 29 homers and 102
RBis over the past four seasons. He’s
durable, too. Cano has played at least
159 games six straight years.
But these aren’t the same Bronx
Bombers anymore. they’ve been de-
pleted by injuries in spring training.
Jeter, Rodriguez, teixeira and grander-
son won’t be in the lineup against Bos-
ton on opening day and all of them ex-
cept Jeter may be out at least a couple
more months.
it’s Cano’s team now — and going
forward.
“Cano was a great leader in the Clas-
sic,” said Felix Lopez, the Yankees’
chief international officer. “Maybe he
can be the leader that he was of that
team and take us to great things.”
Pena is sure of it.
“i knowhe could do it,” he said. “He’s
starting to grow into that. sometimes
players need time to know what their
role is. Definitely i think he’ll be more
vocal and he will lead the way.”
Cano is 30, no longer the young kid
on the block. He’ll make $15 million in
the final year of his contract and is set
to become a free agent after the season.
A $100-plus million deal awaits him in
the near future and there’s no way the
Yankees could let him walk.
But Cano will leave it to his agent,
scott Boras, to handle that. He’s fo-
cused on the present.

Halladay returns as Phils beat Jays
CLeARWAteR, Fla. — Roy Halladay
allowed two runs over 4 1-3 innings
in his first big league spring training
appearance in 11 days, prepping for the
regular season in the Philadelphia Phil-
lies’ 7-2 win over the toronto Blue Jays
on thursday.
the two-time Cy Young Award win-
ner had not pitched in a major league
game since March 17, when he came
out of a start against Baltimore after
one inning due to a stomach virus. He
pitched in a minor league exhibition last
saturday.
Against the Blue Jays, he gave up
eight hits and two walks and struck
out two. edwin encarnacion and Adam
Lind hit consecutive RBi singles in the
third.
toronto starter Brandon Morrow gave
up three runs — two earned — and six
hits in seven innings.
Astros (ss) 11, Tigers 4
KissiMMee, Fla. — Jonathan
singleton hit two home runs and Jason
Castro and Rick Ankiel each hit one,
and a Houston Astros split squad beat
the Detroit tigers despite a three-run
homer by Prince Fielder.
tigers starter Anibal sanchez gave up
nine runs and 11 hits in five innings.
Castro connected for his sixth homer
and Ankiel his fourth. Ankiel drove
in four runs for Houston and Ronny
Cedeno had three hits and scored twice.
Braves 2, Astros 0
KissiMMee, Fla. — Andrelton
simmons hit his third home run of
spring training and Paul Maholm struck
out two in four shutout innings as the
Atlanta Braves topped a Houston Astros
split-squad.
Maholm was named by Braves
manager Fredi gonzalez as the No. 2
starter in the Braves’ rotation. He will
start Wednesday at home against the
Philadelphia Phillies. Maholm ended
the spring with an eRA of 1.63
Lucas Harrell, the Astros No. 2
starter, went six innings, allowing a run.
His spring eRA is 2.25.
Cardinals 1, Marlins 0
JUPiteR, Fla. — Lance Lynn deliv-
ered what was easily his best outing of
spring training and three relievers made
a first-inning run stand up for the st.
Louis Cardinals in a victory over the
Miami Marlins.
Lynn allowed only two hits in six in-
nings while striking out five. He retired
the final 14 batters he faced.
edward Mujica, trevor Rosenthal and
Mitchell Boggs combined to allow only
one hit over the final three innings to
seal the victory and ensure that the Car-
dinals (16-14), who have one grapefruit
League game remaining, will finish with
a winning record.
Matt Holliday had an RBi single off
Justin Nicolino for the game’s only run.
Nationals 5, Mets 1
VieRA, Fla. — gio gonzalez allowed
one hit and struck out seven over four
innings as the Washington Nation-
als closed out their spring training in
Florida with a victory over the New
York Mets.
Daniel Murphy singled in the first
inning, his first at-bat in a major league
game this spring. the Mets’ second
baseman has been slowed by a strained
right intercostal muscle but he thinks
he’ll be ready Monday for opening day.
Murphy also slid headfirst into second
base tagging up on a fly ball.
Pirates 2, Yankees 1
tAMPA, Fla. — Lyle Overbay has
emerged as the top contender to be the
New York Yankees’ starting first base-
man with Mark teixeira beginning the
season on the disabled list.
Overbay had an RBi double as the
Yankees ended their Florida segment
of spring training with a loss to the
Pittsburgh Pirates.
Mariners 6, Cubs 4
MesA, Ariz. — Kelly shoppach hit a
two-out, two-run double in the eighth
inning, spoiling the Chicago Cubs’ final
game at HoHoKam stadium by leading
the seattle Mariners to a victory.
the Cubs closed out their stay at
HoHoKam stadium with a 6-4 loss
thursday to the seattle Mariners in
front of a crowd of 11,635.
After 17 years at HoHoKam, the
Cubs will move to their new facility
being built in Mesa. HoHoKam will be
dormant for spring training next season
before the Oakland Athletics move in
for the 2015 season.
Cubs left fielder Alfonso soriano hit
a two-run home run in the third innings
off Mariners’ No. 2 starter Hisashi
iwakuma. iwakuma was scheduled to
throw 80 pitches but came out after four
innings because of a dry skin patch on
his fingertips. He said through an inter-
preter that it happens every spring and
it was nothing to be worried about.
Padres 6, Indians 4
PeORiA, Ariz. — Cleveland indians
opening day starter Justin Masterson
closed out a solid spring with seven
strikeouts in a loss to the san Diego
Padres at Peoria sports Complex.
the right-hander allowed two runs
and six hits in five innings. He’ll open
the regular season April 2 against the
toronto Blue Jays.
Diamondbacks 9, Rangers 3
sURPRise, Ariz. — trevor Cahill
scattered four hits and struck out 11 in
five-plus innings and the Arizona Dia-
mondbacks beat the texas Rangers.
the Rangers’ lineup was made up
entirely of minor-leaguers, the majority
slated to start the season in Class A.
texas’ major leaguers had left Wednes-
day for Arlington and an exhibition
against the Mexico City Red Devils later
thursday.
Royals 8, Reds 3
gOODYeAR, Ariz. — Alex gordon
and salvador Perez hit home runs off
Matt Latos in Kansas City’s five-run
third inning, and the Royals beat the
Cincinnati Reds.
gordon’s homer was his seventh
of the spring, and Perez — who also
doubled — hit his second, a three-run
shot.
Brewers 6, Rockies 2
sCOttsDALe, Ariz. — Kyle Lohse
had a solid debut three days after sign-
ing a $33 million, three-year contract
with the Milwaukee Brewers, pitching
into the fourth inning of a victory over
the Colorado Rockies.
Lohse gave up two first-inning hits, in-
cluding a run-scoring double by Carlos
gonzalez, but settled down after that.
He also gave up doubles to todd Helton
to lead off the second and Dexter
Fowler to lead off the third. He did not
walk a batter and struck out two.

Santana’s
career in
jeopardy
By MARC CARIG
Newsday
VieRA, Fla. — Johan santana,
a two-time Cy Young Award win-
ner and the first pitcher to have
authored a no-hitter in a Mets
uniform, may have thrown the fi-
nal pitch of his illustrious career.
santana faces his second ma-
jor surgery in the last three years
after an MRi on Wednesday
revealed a probable tear in the
anterior capsule in his left shoul-
der. it is the same injury that al-
ready put his career in jeopardy.
the lefthander missed 19
months, including the entire
2011 season, recovering from his
first capsule surgery. For santana
to return, he would have to once
again rehab from a complicated
procedure that only a select few
have endured even once.
general manager sandy Al-
derson said santana almost cer-
tainly will be lost for the year —
his final season under a six-year,
$137.5-million contract with the
Mets —though the general man-
ager stopped short of forecasting
an end to the pitcher’s career.
“Johan has had an exceptional
career,” said Alderson, who an-
nounced the news on a confer-
ence call thursday night. “We all
hope that career will continue.
i think there’s still questions
that have to be answered with
respect to the injury and how
it’s going to be addressed. so,
until we have better information
about his prognosis and his abil-
ity to return to pitching, i’ll defer
that question.”
santana was never the same
upon his return last season from
surgery, though for one improb-
able night at Citi Field, the
lefthander flashed his previous
greatness.
though he taxed his body,
needing 134 pitches to complete
the feat, santana no-hit the Car-
dinals on June 1. But since that
night, santana’s effectiveness
sagged, eventually prompting
the Mets to end his season in
August.
the 34-year-old santana
hoped an offseason of rest might
prepare his body for the grind
of spring training. instead, he
arrived at camp unprepared to
pitch, the start of what became
a five-week saga regarding his
health.
Criticism from team officials
triggered a messy public dispute
that escalated when santana
threw a surprise bullpen session
— seemingly out of his desire to
prove his health.
throughout it all, the Mets
insisted that santana’s shoulder
was structurally sound, an asser-
tion based on an exam early in
spring.

injury that caused him to miss

ship after 16 seasons in western
Canada.
“Talking to our coaching staff,
as a group, we said if there’s a
chance to get Jarome Iginla …
we want to try and get Jarome
Iginla,” Shero said. “There was
no doubt if we could try and add
this guy, we were going to try
and add him.”
The stunning deal capped a fu-
rious four-day stretch for Shero,
who brought in veteran forward
Brenden Morrow from Dallas on
Sunday and bruising San Jose
defenseman Doug Murray on
Monday. In the span of 96 hours,
the Penguins added three play-
ers with a combined 1,682 points
and 189 playoff career playoff
games.
And they did it without giv-
ing up a single player on a roster
that has put together the NHL’s
second-best record with a month
to go in the regular season.
“I’m pretty cognizant of the
fact, this team on paper, that’s
a pretty good team on paper,”
Shero said.
The key now will be finding a
way to make it work on the ice.
Iginla could make his debut in
Pittsburgh as early as Saturday
barring any immigration issues,
capping a frantic week in which
the three-time Olympian agreed
to part ways with the only fran-
chise he’s ever known.
It wasn’t an easy decision for
the 35-year-old, who is Calgary’s
all-time leadingscorer with1,095
career points. Yet Iginla knew
the struggling Flames needed to
rebuild and understood he could
help get the process started if he
agreed to be traded.
He did not suit up for Wednes-
day night’s game against Colo-
rado — snapping a streak of
441 consecutive games played
— and waited for the phone to
ring. At one point it appeared he
was headed to Boston. Bruins
general manager Peter Chiarelli
believed he’d “won the Jarome
Iginla sweepstakes” around noon
on Wednesday before Iginla —
who had to sign off on the trade
— apparently had a change of
heart.
Ultimately, the chance to be
reunited with Crosby won out.
The two became fast friends
while playing for Team Canada
in the 2010 Vancouver Olym-
pics. Iginla set up Crosby for the
game-winning and country-shak-
ing goal in the gold medal game
against the United States.
“When it comes down to the
choice I had, one or the other,
it’s really hard to pass up the op-
portunity to play on a team with
Sid and (Evgeni) Malkin,” Iginla
said.
Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma
is keeping quiet on who gets the
first crack at taking the ice with
Iginla, though it appears unlikely
Bylsma would break up the trio
of Crosby, Chris Kunitz and Pas-
cal Dupuis, the highest-scoring
line in the NHL.
More likely is Iginla joining
Malkin and All-Star forward
James Neal on the second line
though Bylsma understands
nothing will be set in stone. He
has five weeks to figure out what
combinations work and will ex-
periment heavily even as the
Penguins try to lock down the
top seed in the East.
Though Bylsma is aware tin-
kering with a group that entered
Thursday unbeaten in March
comes with its potential pit-
falls, he pointed out that Iginla,
Morrow and Murray all had no-
trade clauses in their contracts.
All three waived them for the
chance to pull on Pittsburgh
sweaters this spring.
“We’re talking about players
choosing to come to Pittsburgh
and be a part of our team,” Byls-
ma said.
That should put to rest any
concerns about whether Iginla
and Morrow — both former cap-
tains — will mesh with a dress-
ing room where the unques-
tioned leader is all of 25.
“We’ve got great acquisitions
but I think (chemistry) is proba-
bly one of the biggest priorities,”
Crosby said. “But it helps that
nobody in the room is leaving.
I think we have great chemistry
here. Those guys are going to
add to it.”
While Shero acknowledged
the Penguins will become public
enemy No. 1 in the league — if
they weren’t already — Crosby
downplayed the notion the last
four days have affected the pres-
sure to win.
“If anything, it should moti-
vate us even more knowing that
we’ve added some guys that are
going to help us and we’re a bet-
ter hockey team,” Crosby said.
One that has certainly put
the rest of the league on notice
about its intentions.
“They are not afraid to load
up,” said Nashville defense-
man Hal Gill, who helped the
Penguins win the Cup in 2009.
“I think that is good for hockey
to have teams that are willing
to sacrifice and do whatever it
takes to win the Cup.”

Penguins looking for
another solid start
By TOMVENESKY
tvenesky@timesleader.com
All season Wilkes-Barre/
Scranton Penguins head coach
John Hynes has preached the
importance of having a good
start. He praised his team when
they came out firing on all cylin-
ders, and he didn’t hesitate to be
critical when they didn’t.
Wednesday’s 4-2 win over
Binghamton was achieved
thanks to a good start — three
first-period goals.
Tonight, when the Penguins
host the Providence Bruins,
they face another challenge:
achieving a good start on a con-
sistent basis.
“We have to do it every first
period. It’s crunch time for us
to keep a playoff spot,” center
Trevor Smith said. “First peri-
ods, first shifts or the first five
minutes — whatever you want
to call it, it’s about gaining mo-
mentum early.”
Wednesday’s win marked the
fourth time in the last 10 games
that the Penguins — who have
the lowest scoring offense in
the Eastern Conference, scored
four goals or more. It was also
the first time in a little over two
months that they scored three
times in the opening period.
So is the offense back on
track?
“It’s not so much about it be-
ing back on track, it’s that we
really came out with the right
mindset and played the way we
want to play,” Hynes said. “Our
game was on track, and that cre-
ated better offense.”
Notes
• Pittsburgh recalled G Jeff
Zatkoff after he stopped 28 of
30 shots on Wednesday. Zat-
koff backed up Tomas Vokoun
against Winnipeg on Thursday.
After spending four seasons
with the Los Angeles organiza-
tion, the call-up was the first of
Zatkoff’s career.
“It’s special for him and well-
deserved,” Hynes said. “That’s
one of the reasons why he came
here.”
Scott Darling was recalled
from Wheeling later in the day
on Thursday to fill Zatkoff’s spot
in Wilkes-Barre.
• With the trade deadline
approaching April 3, and Pitts-
burgh already pulling off three
major moves, Hynes wouldn’t
rule out the possibility of more
changes impacting the AHL ros-
ter. The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton
Penguins have lost one player
— D Joseph Morrow, in trades
this season.
“There’s always the possibility
and nothing is set for sure until
the deadline passes next week,”
Hynes said. “At this point, you
just focus on what you have.”
• Pittsburgh reassigned Beau
Bennett to Wilkes-Barre/Scran-
ton on Thursday.

At Arlington, Texas
No. 4 Michigan vs. No. 1 Kansas,
7:37 p.m. EDT. (TBS)
Michigan has the edge in back-
court production, especially if Ben
McLemore stays cold. Kansas has
an experience advantage. It might
come down to how well Wolver-
ines post Mitch McGary, who had
a monster game against VCU,
matches up with the Jayhawks’
Jeff Withey. Withey is averaging
16.5 points, 11 rebounds and six
blocks in the NCAA Tournament.
Pick: Kansas 66-64
No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast vs.
No. 3 Florida, 10:07 p.m. (TBS)
Is Florida Gulf Coast still walk-
ing on sunshine? The Eagles are
the tournament’s best story and
the nation will learn Friday night
if the Eagles are content with two
tournament victories. It’s a style
contrast. The Eagles are soaring
on offense, averaging 79.5 points
with Bernard Thompson (23.0)
and Sherwood Brown (20.5) lead-
ing the way. Florida clamps down
on the defensive end. The Gators
have reached the regional final
each of the past two years, and
this should be a third.
Pick: Florida 70-57

The Cardinals take on these odd
Ducks, who impressively battled
their way into the Sweet 16 with
victories over Oklahoma State and
Saint Louis. Both of Louisville’s
NCAA opponents have commit-
ted season highs in turnovers.
“We’re going to make mistakes,
we just have to play through the
mistakes,” said Ducks coach Dana
Altman, advancing to the Sweet 16
for the first time in his career. Or-
egon won the first NCAA title, and
the Ducks brought the trophy with
them. Louisville is the favorite to
hope up this year’s hardware.
Pick: Louisville 80-64
No. 3 Michigan State
vs. No. 2 Duke, 9:45 p.m. (CBS)
Tom Izzo against Mike Krzyze-
wski is always a treat. Michigan
State forward Adreian Payne may
be the key. “He’s really expanded
his game,” Duke’s Ryan Kelly said.
“He can knock down shots out to
the three-point line.” For Duke,
Kelly’s return has opened the
game for Mason Plumlee, who
averages 17.2 points and 10 re-
bounds. Payne and Derrick Nix will
slug it out against Plumlee and
Kelly. The Blue Devils didn’t shoot
it well against Creighton, but they
turned in their best defensive
performance of the year, holding
the nation’s second-best shooting
team to 30.2 percent.
Pick: Duke 56-53
- Kansas City Star
Peters has unique perspective
on Pittsburgh’s newest additions
By TOMVENESKY
tvenesky@timesleader.com
Warren Peters has found him-
self in a enviable position. He’s
the only player in the Pittsburgh
organization who has played
with both Brenden Morrow
and Jarome Iginla — the two
major players that the Penguins
acquired in trades this week.
Peters played with Iginla when
he was called up to the Calgary
Flames for 16 games in the
2008-09 season. He had nothing
but good things to say about the
former Flames captain after he
learned of the trade Thursday.
“Having grown up in Saskatch-
ewan and having been a part of
the Calgary organization, Jarome
was the face of that organization
for a long time for a lot of rea-
sons,” Peters said. “Obviously his
play on the ice, the way he con-
ducted himself as a leader and he
was a face in the community. He
epitomized what it meant to be a
Calgary Flame.”
Now the 35-year-old Iginla
will wear the Penguins crest as
he makes a push for the first
Stanley Cup of his career. Peters
recalls Iginla as the player who
always set the benchmark in
fitness tests, practice habits and
the way he played the game.
“He was the consummate
professional,” Peters said.
Both Iginla and Morrow join
Pittsburgh after long tenures
with their previous teams,
where they both served as
captains. They also leave teams
that have been struggling for
one considered a favorite to win
the Cup.
Peters thinks that fact alone
will give Iginla and Morrow a
spring to their step as members
of Pittsburgh.
“Knowing the type of guy
Jarome is, you could see the
hardships they’ve gone through
in Calgary and he’s always taken
it personally. I think now he’ll
be rejuvenated. The same goes
for Brenden Morrow,” Peters
said. “They have a shot at the
Cup this late in their careers,
and that’s exciting for them.”
So what do the high impact
trades in Pittsburgh mean to the
Penguins here?
For one, that commitment to
winning in Pittsburgh is conta-
gious all down the organization.
“It shows the players here the
commitment level of the orga-
nization they’re in,” head coach
John Hynes said. “Whether
it’s here in Wilkes-Barre or in
Pittsburgh, it’s about creating a
winning environment.”
Peters agreed, and said one
could sense the excitement
in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton
locker room on Thursday.
“It’s exciting to be part of an
organization that makes it that
clear and that evident they’re
in it for one reason — to win it
all,” Peters said.
It’s also exciting for Peters
to see two veteran leaders who
were influential early in his
career join him in the Pittsburgh
organization.
“Hockey’s a small world. You
don’t ever want to burn a bridge
because you never know when
you’ll play with somebody again,”
Peters said. “Those are two pretty
impressive guys that Pittsburgh
went out and got, guys who were
the heart and soul of their hockey
clubs who will do whatever it
takes to win the Cup.”
double-digit lead in the first
half, a spread Miami never came
close to making up.
“It’s amazing, man,” Blue said
in a postgame television inter-
view. “Everybody said this team
wasn’t any good.”
The third-seeded Golden Ea-
gles (26-8) will face either top-
seeded Indiana or No. 4 seed
Syracuse in the East Regional
final on Saturday, aiming for
a spot in the Final Foul for the
first time since Dwyane Wade
took them there a decade ago.
Wade, the Miami Heat star,
tweeted congratulations to
coach Jim Larranaga and the
Hurricanes — as well as his
alma mater.
“Congrts on an amazing sea-
son for coach L and the canes…
after 3 tries in the sweet 16 we
finally figured it out. Congrts,”
he posted.
Marquette was knocked out
in the round of 16 the past two
years and four of the last five.
The game wasn’t hard to de-
cipher. Marquette could shoot;
Miami couldn’t. The Hurricanes
(29-7) had sentiment on their
side, returning to the arena where
Larranaga led mid-major George
Mason to the Final Four seven
years ago, but they made only 35
percent of their field goals and
missed 18 of 26 3-pointers.
“We just shot the ball so
poorly,” Larranaga said, also
lamenting some injuries that
hindered his team’s preparation
this week. “When you can’t put
the ball in the basket, you really
have a hard time staying with a
team like Marquette.”
Marquette, meanwhile, shot
54 percent, a stark turnaround
fromits 38 percent rate fromthe
first two games in the tourna-
ment. Davante Gardner added
14 points, with 12 coming in the
second half when the Golden
Eagles were comfortably ahead.
Syracuse 61, Indiana 50
WASHINGTON -- With its 2-3
zone defense disruptive from
start to finish, and Michael
Carter-Williams pouring in 24
points, fourth-seeded Syracuse
upset No. 1 seed Indiana to
reach the NCAA tournament’s
East Regional final.
Syracuse limited Indiana
to its lowest point total of the
season, forced 19 turnovers,
compiled 10 blocks and held
the normally efficient Hoosiers
to 33 percent shooting.
After getting past preseason
No. 1 Indiana, Syracuse (29-9)
will face No. 3 seed Marquette
on Saturday night in an all-Big
East matchup for a berth in the
Final Four. Coach Jim Boeheim
and the Orange haven’t been
to the national semifinals since
Carmelo Anthony led them to
the 2003 title.

their 71-61 loss to Marquette in an East Regional semifinal in
the NCAA college basketball tournament on Thursday in Wash-
ington.
Iowa State last Sunday to send
the Buckeyes forward.
Mark Lyons’ acrobatic three-
point play for the Wildcats (27-
8) had tied it with 21.8 seconds
left.
Craft dribbled down the
clock and gave it to Ross,
who coolly drilled his second
3-pointer and set off a wild cel-
ebration in the Ohio State sec-
tion of the Arizona-dominated
crowd.
On Saturday, Ohio State
will face the winner of the
late game between underdogs
Wichita State and La Salle. As
the only top-eight seed left in
the West, the Buckeyes will be
Atlanta-bound with one more
win.
Sam Thompson added 11
points for the Buckeyes, who
trailed for nearly the entire first
half before pushing ahead and
nursing a small lead through-
out the final minutes.
Lyons scored 23 points in-
cluding his gutsy three-point
play for the Wildcats, who
rallied from a 10-point deficit
in the second half before fall-
ing just short of their second
NCAA regional final in four
years. Solomon Hill added 16
points in his native Los An-
geles, but the rest of Arizona
combined for just 31 points on
10-for-29 shooting.
After Arizona jumped out to
that early 11-point lead, Ohio
State gathered its game and
mounted a 33-13 surge span-
ning halftime, taking a 53-43
lead with 11 minutes left. The
Wildcats finally answered, but
Ross kept the Buckeyes in front
with nine consecutive points
down the stretch.
Craft became a tournament
hero last Sunday against Iowa
State, hitting a last-second
3-pointer and drawing a ques-
tionable charge moments ear-
lier in the Buckeyes’ 78-75 win.
Ross had his turn in the spot-
light at Staples Center, and he
didn’t flinch.
The game was the second
NCAA tournament meeting
between Ohio State coach
Thad Matta and Arizona’s Sean
Miller, whose friendship goes
back two decades to their time
together at Miami of Ohio and
Xavier.
Despite losing to UCLA in
the Pac-12 tournament semi-
finals to cap an inconsistent
stretch of play, Arizona got a
No. 6 seed and blew out Bel-
mont and Harvard in the NCAA
tournament’s first weekend,
reaching the regional semifi-
nals for the 15th time.
Ohio State hasn’t lost since
Feb. 17, beating Indiana on the
road before winning the Big
Ten tournament. The Buckeyes
had much more trouble than
Arizona in their first two NCAA
games, but they’re showing a
knack for last-minute heroics at
the perfect time.
Arizona took the lead on its
first basket, a 3-pointer from
Lyons in the opening minute,
and held it throughout a slow-
moving first half featuring 19
fouls. With superior ball move-
ment and scoring balance, the
Wildcats eventually pushed the
margin to 31-20 on Nick John-
son’s 3-pointer with 7 minutes
left in the half.
Ohio State finally awoke
when Craft returned to the
game after sitting early with
two fouls, trimming the mar-
gin to 38-34 by halftime. The
Buckeyes finished the half on
a 14-7 run capped by the sec-
ond 3-pointer from Thomas,
who scored 16 of their 34 first-
half points with his steady all-
around game.
Thompson’s layup with
17:39 left gave Ohio State its
first lead since 2-0, and the
Buckeyes opened the second
half with a 10-0 run while hold-
ing Arizona scoreless for more
than 6½minutes spanning half-
time.
As the only school west of
Wichita left in the regional, Ar-
izona had a significant home-
crowd advantage at the cavern-

201 3 wVc Boys t e NNi s caPs ul es
tanski may be missing his first
boys season since taking over
the Sem program, his replace-
ment is more than capable of
stepping in.
Former Misericordia Uni-
versity women’s tennis coach
Allison Joanlanne begins her
first season guiding a boys
team, after stepping in to lead
Sem’s girls program through
the fall after Balutanski suf-
fered a stroke.
“Difference? It’s colder
in the spring,” Joanlanne
laughed. “I don’t really see any
difference.”
The players do.
“With Allison, you do a lot
more running and condition-
ing out in practice,” said junior
Chris Kim, who opened the
season in Sem’s top singles
spot. “When Mike was here, it
was just play.”
Joanlanne is also carrying 10
players on the varsity roster —
up a couple players from what
Sem fielded in the past — and
stresses preparation is just as
important as actaul play.
“The first day (of practice),
we did a team warmup,” Cor-
nell added. “That’s the first
time we’d ever done that.
“I’d say Mike was a little
more old-school.”
Whether they’re playing for
their old coach or a new one,
the goal of the Blue Knights
remains the same.
They intend to capture WVC
and District 2 crowns, then ad-
vance as far as they can in the
state tournament.
That ambition took the Blue
Knights to the PIAA Class 2A
finals last season, but a repeat
of that run may be asking a lot.
Gone are top singles players
and twins George and Harry
Parkhurst — who battled each
other for the District 2 singles
championship before graduat-
ing.
Still, filling Sem’s lineup
with four new faces hardly
seems like an ominous task to
Joanlanne.
“They’re all just as talent-
ed,” Joanlanne said. “I’m very
lucky.”
She does admit to one differ-
ence, though.
Joanlanne finds it easier get-
ting her points across to high
school players moreso than in
the college game.
“You take a younger kid,
they seemto catch on quicker,”
Joanlanne said. “You’re able to
mold them. I find it easier to
work with the younger kids.”
Joanlanne helped the Semi-
nary girls squad work through
an unbeaten regular season,
stepping in to coach the club
when Balutansky suffered his
stroke in preseason practice.
That success, and her nine
years coaching in college,
brought Joanlanne instant
respect among players who
reached the state champion-
ship round under their old
coach.
“She started (at Sem) by do-
ing a good job with the girls
team back in the fall,” Cornell
said. “And we knew she had a
college backround in tennis.”
That experience has Joan-
lanne and her first boys team
hopeful of continuing Sem’s
run of success.
“State finals last year. They
have a great act to follow,”
Joanlanne said.
But the Blue Knights believe
they have a chance to get there
by following their new leader.
“Obviously, losing George
and Harry — our first two
singles players from last year
— was big,” Kim said. “It’s go-
ing to be hard to get where we
were without them.
“But I don’t count us out of
anything.”
Not even another long play-
off run.
“Things are no different this
year,” Cornell said. ” I think
we still have a quality team.
We’re looking to do some of
the same things.”

“When it’s snowing outside
it’s hard to think spring,”
Crain said in between snow

“We want people to come out

a sNeak Peak
Everyone likes something
for free. On Wednesday, the
RailRiders are holding a free
preview of everything new at
the ballpark in Moosic.
Gates at newly-renovated
PNC Field will open at 5:30
p.m. that night for guests to
experience several highlights
that will be seen throughout
the season.
Not only can fans see the
stadium for the first time,
players will be working out in
their brand new RailRaiders
gear — with some available
for autographs. All concession
stands will also be open along
with inflatables in the Family
Fun Zone.
a New game
The Lehigh Valley IronPigs,
the RailRiders closest and
biggest rivals, made national
news this week by unveil-
ing new urinals in men’s
restrooms that have a urine-
controlled video game directly
above.
While there are hundreds
of new amenities at PNC
Field, this is not one of them
as Coca-Cola Park in Allen-
town will be the first venue
in the baseball world with
the system. Crain applauded
IronPigs general manager
Kurt Landes and is expecting
more of a rivalry throughout
the season.
“Kurt Landes is a good
friend of mine and his creativ-
ity, his innovation is wonder-
ful,” the SWB president and
GM said. “We throw around
ideas like that a lot. Some-
times you do them and some-
times you can’t. But they’re
innovators in our industry. I’m
very happy for (the IronPigs).
It’s a cool thing.”
tickets still aVail-
aBle Don’t be afraid that
you won’t be able to get a
ticket for the Opening Day
event at PNC Field. While
there are thousands of tickets
sold for the first game in his-
tory of re-branded PNC Field,
there are tickets remaining.
“We encourage people to
come out and be a part of his-
tory,” Crain said. “Come out
and be a part of the opening
of this brand new ballpark
come see it and we’re anxious
to see everyone. No matter
what the temperature we’re
going to put on a great show,
especially on Opening Day,
because this doesn’t happen
all that often.”
One aspect that might not
be available for the opener is
lawn seats. With the colder
than normal temperatures,
sod has not been installed in
the outfield yet. It will be laid
down by opening day, but may
not be ready for fans by then.
Crain said that a decision on
that will be made closer to the
game.

D.A. Points blasts out of the sand on the No. 18 hole during the
first round of the Houston Open on Thursday in Humble, Texas.
Points shot an 8-under-par 64 to take the first round lead.
Points uses old putter
to take an early lead
By DOUG FERGUSON
AP Golf Writer
HUMBLE, Texas — The put-
ter D.A. Points once took from
his mother paid off nicely for
him Thursday in the Houston
Open.
Points opened with five
straight birdies and wound up
with an 8-under 64 on a pleas-
ant morning with only moderate
wind at Redstone Golf Club. He
had a one-shot lead over Cam-
eron Tringale and John Rollins.
Rory McIlroy had to fight hard
for a 73.
In his final tournament be-
fore the Masters — and his first
event since August at No. 2 in
the world — McIlroy caught the
lip of a bunker and followed with
a 5-wood into the water for a
double bogey on the par-5 eighth
hole that put him at 3-over par.
He rallied strong on the back
nine with three birdies in a four-
hole stretch, only to miss a 7-foot
par putt after a flop shot over a
wide bunker.
“I felt like on the front nine I
was a little tentative,” McIlroy
said. “I just tried to commit to
myself a little more on the back
nine and it seemed to help. If I
could have got it back to even par,
I would have been pretty happy,
but I’m 1-over par and, hopefully,
the conditions are a little calmer
tomorrow morning.”
Points first borrowed the Ping
Anser from his mother during
his junior years in Illinois, and
like most golfers, he abandoned
it once he stopped making putts.
But he recently asked Ping to
clean it up for him and add some
weight. He also got a putting les-
son — no, not from Steve Strick-
er — and he was on his way.
“Maybe I’m an idiot for not
having used this putter the
whole time,” Points said. “It
worked well today.”
A mild wind gained strength
in the afternoon, and Rollins still
managed a 65. Angel Cabrera
of Argentina, a two-time major
champion who lives in Houston,
was in the group at 66.
Phil Mickelson was at 4 under
and right in the mix until he hit
his tee shot into the water on the
sixth hole and made double bo-
gey, nearly hooked a 3-wood into
the hazard on the next hole and
three-putted for bogey, and then
made bogey on the par-3 ninth
from a bunker to wind up at 72.
Sanders helps Milwaukee beat Los Angeles
The Associated Press
MILWAUKEE — Larry Sand-
ers scored 13 of his career-high
21 points in the third quarter
and the Milwaukee Bucks rallied
to beat the Los Angeles Lakers
113-103 on Thursday night.
Sanders was 8 of 11 from the
floor and had 13 rebounds.
Kobe Bryant scored 30 points,
leaving him four points behind
Wilt Chamberlain (31,419) for
fourth place on the NBA’s career
list. Dwight Howard had 15
points and 15 rebounds, and
Steve Nash scored 16 points.
Monta Ellis scored eight
points for Milwaukee during a
late 12-3 run, and the Lakers
never got closer than eight the
rest of the way.
Pacers 103, Mavericks 78
DALLAS — Paul George had
24 points and eight rebounds
and the Indiana Pacers broke
open a close game in the third
quarter to beat the Dallas Mav-
ericks.
George scored 13 points in
the third, including eight in a
20-5 run that broke a tie game at
halftime.
The first-place Pacers won
their fourth straight and have a
half-game lead for the second-
best record in the Eastern
Conference.
Dirk Nowitzki scored 21
points for Dallas, which re-
mained 1½ games behind the
Los Angeles Lakers in the race
for the final playoff spot in the
Western Conference.
N B A
PITTSBURGH — Pas-
cal Dupuis scored twice and
Evgeni Malkin had a goal in his
return to the lineup, leading
the Pittsburgh Penguins to a
4-0 victory over the Winnipeg
Jets on Thursday night for their
14th straight win.
Chris Kunitz had a goal and
an assist and Sidney Crosby
had two assists to push his
league-best points total to 56 as
the Penguins capped a giddy 24
hours and within three victo-
ries of its own NHL record for
consecutive wins. Malkin, back
from an upper body injury, got
his first goal in three weeks.
Tomas Vokoun stopped 20
shots and even recorded his
first assist while getting his
50th career shutout.
Al Montoya, making just
his fourth start of the season,
made 39 saves for Winnipeg but
the Jets were no match for the
NHL’s hottest team.
The league record for con-
secutive wins was set by the
Mario Lemieux-led Penguins
in 1992-93, and appears to be
in serious jeopardy, though
Lemieux — who now co-owns
the franchise — hardly appears
to mind.
Pittsburgh hosts the New
York Islanders on Saturday and
Buffalo next Tuesday. If the
Penguins can handle a pair of
Eastern Conference also-rans
they could head to New York to
face the Rangers April 3 with a
chance to tie the record.
The latter half of Pittsburgh’s
streak has been filled with taut
defensive struggles, one-goal
thrillers and stunning third-
period comebacks, proof the
Penguins say, that they’re ready
for playoff hockey.
There was no such drama
required against the Jets on a
night Pittsburgh didn’t exactly
play like the weight of the third-
longest streak in league history
felt like a burden.
Less than a day after the Pen-
guins acquired six-time All-Star
Jarome Iginla from Calgary,
Pittsburgh hardly looked like a
team in need of any help. Iginla
won’t play until this weekend
at the earliest. Considering the
ease with which his new club is
playing at the moment, Iginla
can take his time.
Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma
says he will experiment with
line combinations while trying
to work in Iginla and Brenden
Morrow — who came over in a
trade with Dallas on Sunday —
but it’s unlikely he’ll mess with
the trio of Kunitz, Dupuis and
Crosby.
Islanders 4,
Flyers 3 SO
PHILADELPHIA — Colin
McDonald scored two goals,
Josh Bailey tallied the clinching
score in the shootout and the
New York Islanders won again
on the road, coming up with a
shootout victory over the Phila-
delphia Flyers.
John Tavares also scored for
New York, which won its fourth
straight on the road while
improving to 10-4-1 away from
home this season to pull into
a tie with the Rangers for the
eighth and final playoff spot in
the Eastern Conference.
Scott Hartnell scored twice
and Mike Knuble also tallied for
the Flyers, who blew a two-goal
lead while falling further out of
the playoff picture. Philadelphia
last missed the playoffs in 2007.
The Isles, who last made the
playoffs in 2007, dominated the
final two periods of regulation
after falling behind 2-0 in the
first period.
McDonald tied the game at 2
with 9:56 left in the final period
when his one-timer from close
range after Keith Aucoin’s pass
from behind the net beat Ilya
Bryzgalov on the stick side.
McDonald scored again from
the point 5½ minutes later
when his slap shot deflected off
the skates of Flyers defenseman
Bruno Gervais and past Bryzga-
lov to put New York ahead 3-2.
But the Flyers tied it with
29.8 seconds left in regulation
when Hartnell tallied on the
power play with Bryzgalov
pulled. New York goalie Evgeni
Nabokov appeared to have the
puck frozen, but it was knocked
loose and to Hartnell in front of
the left post. Hartnell corralled
the puck with his skates and
then knocked it past a sprawled
Nabokov.
After a scoreless overtime
period, the teams each scored
once in the regulation period
of the shootout. After Philadel-
phia’s Wayne Simmonds missed
his attempt in the fourth round,
Bailey wristed a shot past Bry-
zgalov on the stick side to give
New York two points.
The Flyers took a 2-0 lead
after the first period on goals
from Hartnell and Knuble.
Hartnell opened the scoring
by one-timing a pass from
Giroux from the slot low and to
Nabokov’s glove side. Hartnell
fanned a bit on the shot, shak-
ing his head in mock disgust
before smiling after the power-
play tally.
Knuble, who was a healthy
scratch in eight straight games
and 10 of the last 11, put
Philadelphia ahead two goals
when he finished a 2-on-1 break
by deking past Nabokov with
a slick backhanded shot into a
wide-open goal.
Maple Leafs 6,
Hurricanes 3
TORONTO — Joffrey Lupul
scored the go-ahead goal with
3:10 remaining, helping the
Toronto Maple Leafs hold off
a Carolina comeback and beat
the Hurricanes.
Lupul raced past Joe Corvo
and beat Justin Peters for his
seventh goal this season, shift-
ing the puck from his backhand
before tucking the puck into
the net.
Jay McClement sealed it with
his sixth of the season on an
empty-netter with 45 seconds
to go before Nikolai Kulemin
added his sixth with 3 seconds
left — also into an empty net.
Tyler Bozak, Cody Franson
and Dion Phaenuf also scored
for Toronto.
Eric Staal, Jordan Staal and
Alexander Semin scored for the
Hurricanes, who rallied from a
2-0 hole for a 3-2 lead early in
the third before extending their
winless streak to seven games.
Coyotes 7,
Predators 4
NASHVILLE, Tenn. —
Radim Vrbata had two goals
and an assist and Rostislav
Klesla added four assists and
the Phoenix Coyotes scored
six times in the opening period
to cruise to a victory over the
Nashville Predators.
Martin Hanzal, David Moss,
Matthew Lombardi, Keith
Yandle and Antoine Vermette
also scored for the Coyotes,
who snapped a seven-game los-
ing streak — thanks to their big
first period that included five
goals in a span of 6:40.
The Coyotes’ seven goals
were just one short of the num-
ber they had in the entirety of
their skid. Phoenix has scored
10 goals in the last two nights
after being outscored 16-5 in
their previous six games.
David Legwand, Rich Clune,
Gabriel Bourque, and Shea We-
ber scored for Nashville, which
had its three-game winning
streak snapped.
Kings 4,
Blues 2
ST. LOUIS — Mike Richards
scored the go-ahead goal with
2:43 to play, Jonathan Quick
made 20 saves and the Los
Angeles Kings continued their
dominance of St. Louis with a
win over the Blues.
Dustin Brown had a goal and
an assist, and Trevor Lewis and
Justin Williams also scored for
the Kings. Jarret Stoll assisted
on Lewis’ goal, giving him 100
with Los Angeles.
The win gives the Kings only
their second sweep of a season
series against St. Louis after
first doing it in 2005-06. Los
Angeles has beaten the Blues
eight straight times, including a
4-0 sweep in last season’s West-
ern Conference semifinals.
Vladimir Tarasenko scored
both goals and Jaroslav Halak
made 36 saves for the Blues,
who have lost four of their last
five.
Senators 3,
Rangers 0
OTTAWA -- Ben Bishop
turned aside 24 shots to earn
his second career NHL shutout
and the Ottawa Senators beat
the New York Rangers 3-0 on
Thursday night.
Andre Benoit, Guillaume
Latendresse and Colin Green-
ing scored for the Senators,
and Mika Zibanejad and Chris
Neil chipped in with two assists
apiece.
Henrik Lundqvist made 26
saves for the Rangers, who
applied heavy pressure while
trailing 1-0 midway through
the third period but could not
get the puck past Bishop. The
Ottawa goaltender was unflap-
pable, throwing his body in
front of a Ryan McDonagh shot
and using the shaft of his stick
to block another.
When the Senators finally re-
lieved the pressure after about
a minute, they went down ice
and Latendresse beat Lundqvist
with a low shot from the faceoff
circle. Greening scored into an
empty net with just over two
minutes to play.
The Senators had the only
goal of the opening two periods
when Benoit let loose a point
shot that found the back of the
net with Anton Stralman in the
penalty box for tripping.
Lundqvist was visibly upset
with McDonagh immediately
following the goal. Not only did
Lundqvist not see the shot, but
he took an elbow to the head
from his defenseman just before
it went in.
McDonagh was in between
Lundqvist and Ottawa forward
Chris Neil battling fighting for
position in front of the net.
Neil won that battle to help
the Senators take a 1-0 lead
which proved to be all they

U.S. growth slow, steady
The U.S. economy grew at a slightly
faster but still anemic rate at the end
of last year. However, there is hope
that growth accelerated in early 2013
despite higher taxes and cuts in gov-
ernment spending.
The economy grewat an annual rate
of 0.4 percent in the October-December
quarter, the Commerce Department
said Thursday. That was slightly better
than the previous estimate of 0.1 percent
growth. The revision reflected stronger
business investment and export sales.
Analysts think the economy is grow-
ing at a rate of around 2.5 percent in
the current January-March quarter,
which ends this week.
Steady hiring has kept consumers
spending this year. And a rebound in
company stockpiling, further gains in
housing and more business spending
also likely drove faster growth in the
first quarter.
Jobless rate inches up
The number of Americans seeking
unemployment benefits jumped by
16,000 last week, the second consecu-
tive weekly increase. But the longer-
term trend in layoffs remained consis-
tent with an improved job market.
Applications increased to a season-
ally adjusted 357,000 for the week end-
ing March 23, the Labor Department
said Thursday. That’s up from 341,000
the previous week, which was revised
slightly higher.
First-time applications are a proxy
for layoffs. They have been declining
steadily since November. At the same
time, hiring has accelerated, lowering
the unemployment rate in February to
a four-year low of 7.7 percent.

Cyprus banks
reopen without
major turmoil
NICOSIA, Cyprus — There were
longlines of anxious people but nosign
of trouble as banks in Cyprus opened
Thursday for the first time in nearly
two weeks, after an international bail-
out that sought to prevent the country
fromfinancial ruin.
The government has imposed
a daily limit on how much people
can withdraw to stop a run on its
banks — the first such action in
the 14-year history of the euro cur-
rency. Cypriots took the measure in
their stride, aware that with their
economy teetering on the edge of
collapse, any undue panic would
make the situation worse.
“Everything has been paralyzed. Be-
sides my business being already low,
now no one thinks of buying flowers,”
said flower shop owner Christos Pa-
pamichael who was among about 30
people waiting patiently for bank doors
to open.
The limits on transactions, have
been imposed initially for seven days
and are being reviewed daily. Accord-
ing to Central Bank assessments, the
restrictions are to be fully lifted in a
month, Foreign Minister Ioannis Ka-
soulides said.
President Nicos Anastasiades ex-
pressed his “warm gratitude and deep
appreciation towards the Cypriot
people for the maturity and spirit of re-
sponsibility they have shown at a criti-
cal time for the stability of the Cypriot
economy,” a statement from his office
said.
A deal was finally reached in Brus-
sels with other euro countries and the
International Monetary Fund early
Monday. The country’s second-largest
bank, Laiki, is to be split up, with its
healthy assets being absorbed into the
Bank of Cyprus.
PITTSTON TWP. — A
study of the feasibility of re-
storing direct flight service
between the Pittsburgh In-
ternational and the Wilkes-
Barre/Scranton International
airports is under way, and
area leaders are hopeful it will
showthere is a need. But even
if that’s the case, convincing
an airline to handle the flights
is another story.
According to an article
in the Pittsburgh Post-
Gazette, The Allegheny
County Airport Author-
ity board hired Texas-based
Mead & Hunt Inc. last year
to develop possible busi-
ness plans, including costs
and flight schedules, for
airlines that might be in-
terested in starting service
between Pittsburgh and 13
other airports in the state,
including Erie, Harrisburg,
Johnstown, Lancaster and
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
Mead & Hunt will be paid
$299,148 for the work. The
airport authority will chip in
$74,787, and the rest will be
paid by a $224,361 state grant.
Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton
International Airport Direc-
tor Barry Centini said he
believes there is a market
here that would fill seats
if flights were offered. Wen
USAir ran flights between
the two airports, passen-
gers responded positively,
he said.
The last flight between
the two airports occurred
June 2, 2007, when USAir
ended its scheduled flights.
Now for a passenger to get
to Pittsburgh, he or she must
fly to Philadelphia and get
on a connecting flight.
With the Marcellus Shale
Industry taking off in the
state’s Northern Tier and
the southwestern portion
of the state, Bill Moore
said restoring flights makes
smart business sense for
an airline. The head of
the Greater Wilkes-Barre
Chamber, Moore said there
is likely plenty of travel be-
tween the two regions by
shale industry workers.
“The more convenient
you can make it for the
business traveler, the more
likely they are to use it,”
Moore said. And for casual
and leisure travelers, it’s
also convenient — as Pitts-
burgh offers more destina-
tions than the local airport
does and it’s only an hour
flight between the two.
US Airways dropped Pitts-
burgh International as a hub
in November 2004. Within a
few years, the airline elimi-
nated service to many of the
smaller airports in the state
that served as feeders for
flights from Pittsburgh, in-
cluding Wilkes-Barre/Scran-
ton, Harrisburg and Lehigh
Valley.
Centini said he believes
the study will show there
is an interest in flights be-
tween the two regions. “I
don’t believe it’s a matter
of numbers,” he said. “It’s a
matter of which airline.”

Mario Picone, left, works with traders at his post on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange this week, which
ended with the S&P 500 breaking new ground. U.S. markets will be closed today.
S&P reacheS new heightS
NEW YORK — There goes another
stock market record.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 crossed
into record territory Thursday morning,
beating the closing high it set in pre-fi-
nancial crisis days. Three weeks earlier,
the Dow Jones industrial average beat
its own 2007 record.
The S&P 500, a barometer that inves-
tors use to gauge how the market is per-
forming, edged above the Oct. 9, 2007,
record close of 1,565 about an hour into
trading. It closed at 1,569.19, up more
than 6 points from the day before, a
small increase but notable for the mile-
stone it obliterated.
Even as the S&P hit newpeaks, inves-
tors noted that the U.S. economy’s foot-
ing is still uncertain, and the European
debt crisis still far from resolved. Some
also are concerned that the gains are be-
ing artificially fueled by the Federal Re-
serve’s easy-money policy.
“Getting back to where we were is an
important step,” said Howard Silverb-
latt, senior index analyst at S&P Dow
Jones Indices. But, he cautioned in a
note to investors: “Markets are volatile,
and if you are a long-term investor you
should expect declines.”
For most of this year, the stock mar-
ket has zoomed ahead. A mixed perfor-
mance over the last twoweeks, thanks to
the bailout of cash-strapped Cyprus, has
been more the exception than the rule.
Thursday marks the end of first-quarter
trading, as markets will be closed for the
Good Friday holiday. The Dow is up 11
percent for the three-month period, the
best performance in more than a year.
Last year, it lost ground in two quarters
and was up 4 percent and 8 percent in
the other two.
Thegovernment reportedthat theU.S.
economygrewfaster thanfirst estimated
in the fourth quarter. But the growth, an
annual rate of 0.4 percent, was still ane-
mic. The number of Americans seeking
unemployment benefits jumped for the
second consecutive week. On a longer
time frame, though, jobless claims have
been declining since November.
