Whitney Lukas had finished running her first Boston Marathon less than 10 minutes before two explosions killed three and injured more than 100 others near the finish line Monday. Lukas, 20, of Courtdale, had just picked up her medal and was heading toward the finish line/grandstand area to meet up with her parents, Paul and Jane Lukas, when the first bomb went off. “I just immediately thought, ‘That was a bomb, I’m pretty sure.’ … Everyone was like,

what was that? After the second one went off, everyone was silent because everybody knew what it was,” Lukas said in a cellphone interview on her way back from Boston on Monday night. Her first thoughts, after realizing bombs had exploded about 100 yards away from her, was “Please, let my parents be OK. And second, just deepest sympathies for the victims, because the spectators were easily six people deep from the fence. And deepest sympathies for the runners in that moSee NEPA, Page 8A

The Pennsylvania Game Commission board approved its largest land acquisition in Luzerne County in 50 years on Monday by acquiring more than 3,600 acres in Bear Creek and Buck townships. The property includes three tracts totaling 3,684 acres. Two tracts in the rural townships off Route 115 connect to existing state game lands, and all of the acreage will be included in State Game Lands 91. The bulk of the acreage was acquired from PPL Electric Utilities Corp., which had purchased the property from Blue Ridge Real Estate. PPL will convey 3,393 acres of property to the commission in exchange for easements for a power-line ex-

pansion project will will traverse five game lands in the area. The remaining acres will be purchased by the Game Commission with funds derived from Marcellus Shale leases at a cost not to exceed $750,000. Commissioner Jay Delaney, who represents the Northeast Region on the commission board, said one of the newly acquired tracts was slated for a large-scale housing development before Monday’s acquisition. “Now we’ll be keeping it pristine,” Delaney said. “I’m thrilled that we’re able to obtain such a large amount of land that has value for development and preserve it for our wildlife resources and sportsmen.” Delaney commended Bill Capouillez, the agency’s direc-

tor of the bureau of wildlife habitat management, and northeast region staff for their work on the acquisition. The majority of the property is forested with oak and maple interspersed with stands of hemlock and white pine. It is part of the Upper Lehigh River watershed and includes two miles of Choke Creek, which is classified as an “exceptional value” trout stream. Mike Beahm, commission Land Management Group Supervisor for Carbon, Luzerne, Lackawanna and Monroe counties, said access is another benefit of the acquisitions. Route 115 borders one of the parcels as does Buck River Road. The property is also within 20 minutes of the Poconos and WilkesBarre, Beahm said.

“We could have bought property in other counties for a lot less, but it wouldn’t be as convenient for as many people as this is,” Beahm said.”It’s in a convenient location for a lot of people.” Beahm said PPL approached the Game Commission to discuss its power line project. Agency staff assessed the impact that the power line would have on habitat and public use, and the new acreage more than makes up for that loss, he said. “The property was timbered by Blue Ridge Real Estate, so there is regeneration there. There are also places where we can do prescribed burns to create additional habitat,” Beahm said. “There is also a large rattlesnake den on one of the parcels.”

Now that the acquisition has been approved, Beahm said commission crews will work on improving an access road into the parcels that will be opened seasonally for hunters. Delaney said the funding derived from Marcellus Shale leases has allowed the commission to purchase land at a higher rate in recent years, and much of the property contains extremely valuable wildlife habitat. “This newest land purchase isn’t mine-scarred land. It’s all forest,” Delaney said. “PPL came to us because they needed right-of-ways across our game lands, and our land management staff did an exceptional job to make this happen.”

WILKES-BARRE - City police reported the following: • Police said they arrested Hoan Minh Ho, 23, of Lehigh Street, on charges he threatened another person with a gun. Ho was arraigned Sunday on charges of terroristic threats, firearms not to be carried without a license and public drunkenness.

Garrett Jr., 29, of South Cedar Street, were each charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. They were both jailed at the county prison for lack of $40,000 bail each. Preliminary hearings are scheduled on April 23. • A diaper bag, a Princess Peach bag containing 14 Nintendo DS video games, an iPhone and an iPod were reported stolen from a vehicle parked at 35 Grove Lane on Monday. EDWARDSVILLE — A woman was arraigned Sunday on charges she stole a vehicle at gunpoint.

She was jailed at the county prison for lack of $40,000 bail. Police allege Kotz was picked up by a friend and driven to an apartment on Roosevelt Street at about 2 p.m. Saturday. Kotz

pulled out a handgun and told her friend to “get out,” according to the criminal complaint. Kotz had earlier told her friend she needed to rent a vehicle to drive to New York to see her boyfriend. Wilkes-Barre police spotted the vehicle parked outside APlus at Carey Avenue and Academy Street. Kotz was captured after a foot chase, the complaint says. Police said in the complaint they found syringes inside the vehicle. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on April 24. WILKES-BARRE TWP. — Township police arrested James Thomas Ashford Jr., 29, of Marcy Street, Wilkes-Barre Township, on Saturday after he allegedly assaulted an ex-girlfriend inside her residence.

Jury selected in arson case against woman
Gail Schneider is charged with six counts of arson and one count of criminal mischief.

WILKES-BARRE — A Luzerne County jury was selected Monday for the trial of a Berwick woman charged with setting a fire that destroyed a Conyngham apartment and business complex. Gail Schneider, 44, is charged with six counts of arson and one count of criminal mischief relating to the September 2010 fire at the Lantern Lane Complex along South Main Street in the borough. “You are gonna hear how peoples lives were in danger,” Assistant District Attorney Shannon Crake said in her opening statement. “This was a catastrophic fire … that caused the building to eventually be (demolished) … and caused $1.5 million in property damage.” Crake will begin calling witnesses to testify today.

Prosecutors allege Schneider, who lived in an apartment at the building in September 2009, had been cited with disorderly conduct and was evicted. She had filed a civil complaint against local real estate developer Kenneth Temborski, police said, for the return of a $790 security deposit. A district judge ruled in favor of Temborski in December 2009. Police later discovered a computer belonging to Schneider on which they allegedly found searches for specific fire investigation information about lighter fluid and how to blow up a car. Police said Schneider also wrote a text message regarding Temborski that “paybacks are a bitch.” Crake said in her opening statement that two elderly women had to be rescued from the fire and that Schneider had the motive, the opportunity and the means to start it. Crake said she will be calling several witnesses, including the women who had to be rescued, firefighters, investigators and expert witnesses in her attempt to prove Schneider com-

mitted the crime. “Where there is smoke, there’s fire and that smoke leads right … to (Schneider),” she said. Schneider’s attorney, William Miele, said in his opening statement that his client will testify in her own defense, and jurors will see she is not responsible for the fire. Miele admitted his client sent a text message about paybacks, but what prosecutors aren’t showing is the rest of that text message that said Scheider would not return keys to her former apartment until she received her money. Prosecutors also can’t prove Schneider was in the vicinity of the complex building because a PNC Bank video shows her leaving Conyngham at 1:58 a.m. — the fire was called in more than 30 minutes later. In regards to Internet searches, Miele said, his client has had that specific computer for a number of years and the date of those searches including fire information cannot be pinpointed.

Bear Creek Charter will Pringle man charged use propane-fired system with sex assault in 2001
By JANINE UNGVARSKY Times Leader Correspondent

BEAR CREEK TWP. — The new Bear Creek Community Charter School will have a propane-fired heating system, the school’s board of trustees decided Monday. The board discussed several options for HVAC systems, including oil-fired, which was not favored because it is not in keeping with the school’s ecological focus, and geothermal. Several board members expressed regret that geothermal did not seem to be practical from either a cost or maintenance aspect, and instead settled on a $1.74 million propane-fired system that will cost about $3,500 per year to operate. Also discussed were plans for some board members to meet with representatives of the construction team to settle on the types of materials to be used in the building so cost estimates can be completed. The board briefly discussed considerations of maintenance, sound dampening, ease of replacement and relative cost for several types of surfaces. The board also approved a plan for the Bear Creek Foun-

dation to establish a “Pathways to the Future” capital campaign that will offer engraved paver bricks to be used on school grounds in exchange for donations. In other business, the board discussed some planned changes to the school admission policy aimed at curbing application fraud, in which parents claim students are residing with a relative or other custodian in a school district with preferred admission status. Under the new policy, students who do not reside with a biological parent will have to provide proof of their custody status and proof of residency. The board also discussed a requirement that paperwork documenting required vaccinations be submitted one week before school begins, with families who do not accommodate the requirement possibly losing their place in the school. The admission policy review came the same day the board learned that the school has experienced the biggest pre-enrollment demand in the school’s 10-year history, and currently has a waiting list of more than 125 for kindergarten spots..


KINGSTON — A man was charged as an adult Friday with sexually assaulting a young boy in 2001 when the man was 13 or 14 years old. Robert Allen Hunter, 25, of Hoyt Street, Pringle, was arraigned on a single count of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse. He remained jailed Monday at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $25,000 bail. District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis said Monday that Hunter was charged as an adult because he is older than 21 now despite his age when he allegedly assaulted the boy 12 years ago. “Once he turned 21, juvenile court loses jurisdiction,” Salavantis said. She said there is no statute of limitations for the offense of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse. “This law was changed that allows a victim to come forward up to their 50th birthday,” Salavantis said. “The law recognizes it takes time for victims of sexual assault to come forward.”

According to the criminal complaint: Police were notified in March Hunter allegedly assaulted a 5-year-old boy in a Chestnut Street, Kingston, home sometime during 2001. The boy stated Hunter played the game “Truth or Dare” and made him run around the house naked before he was sexually assaulted in a bedroom. Earlier this year, the boy and Hunter exchanged messages on Facebook with Hunter telling the boy “not to tell anyone,” the complaint says. Police recorded a phone call the boy made to Hunter on Friday. Hunter allegedly told the boy, “I know I did something wrong. I feel horrible about what happened,” according to the complaint. Police questioned Hunter about the alleged assault in 2001. Hunter allegedly admitted he performed a lewd sex act on the boy, telling police, “I am not excusing my actions. I feel terrible and I wish it never happened.” A preliminary hearing is scheduled on April 17.

City firefighters quickly extinguished a blaze at 73 Reno Lane Monday morning. A neighbor called 911 just before 8 a.m. when he saw smoke coming from the attic. Firefighters extinguished the blaze minutes later. No injuries were reported. Luzerne County property records list Thomas Perillo, of Plymouth Township, as owner. Fire Chief Jay Delaney said there was smoke and water damage to a bedroom on the second floor and minor fire damage in the attic. City fire inspector Capt. Alan Klapat determined the cause of the fire as electrical.

Fire quickly extinguished

Pennsylvania’s 11 casinos set a record as they generated $67.4 million in gross revenue from table games in March, buoyed by a 25 percent yearover-year increase at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem. Overall the state gaming board reported an increase of 9 percent over the previous one-month record set exactly one year earlier. Even with the record figures, more than half of the state’s casinos actually reported declines in table-game

near Mount Pocono. Mohegan Sun saw a minimal decline from $3.58 million last March to $3.55 million this March. Mount Airy also saw a slight drop from $3.67 million last March to $3.59 million this March. The biggest decrease came in the northwest corner of the state where Presque Isle Downs Casino in Erie generated $1.3 million in gross revenue from table games last month, down 38 percent from the $2.1 million reported during the same period the year before. The declines there

come less than a year after a casino opened in fellow Lake Erie border city Cleveland. In addition to the Sands, the other four casinos that saw increases were Sugarhouse Casino in Philadelphia, Parx Casino in Bensalem, Meadows Casino near Pittsburgh and the Valley Forge Casino Resort, which opened at the end of last March. The Valley Forge Casino Resort reported $3.51 million this March and along with the $3.22 million increase reported at the Sands, were primarily responsible for the record setting month. The old record was $61.9 million reported last March. Combined with March slots revenues announced earlier this month, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control

Board reported total gross revenue from gambling in Pennsylvania was up 1 percent over last March, to $296.7 million. The other three casinos that saw dips were Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino and Racetrack in Chester, the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh and Hollywood Casino at Penn National in Grantville, near Harrisburg. The state said there were 13 additional slot machines in operation in March compared to March 2012. While some casinos shed table games, others added them including the Sands, which installed 31 additional games and Rivers, which added six. Parx dropped 20 table games and Harrah’s dropped four.

Inmate’s appeals top state’s list Search
Man accused of aiming threats at district attorney has filed 77 open-records requests.

HARRISBURG – According to an annual report compiled by the state Office of Open Records, a Luzerne County inmate had filed the most appeals with the office last year. The report, issued Monday for the 2012 operating year, lists Sean Donahue as the number one person who has filed appeals in the state – 77. Overall, the office reported, its

workload has increased 89 percent and 2,188 appeals were filed. Donahue, 43, is jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility and awaiting trial on charges he aimed threats at Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis. Police said Donahue threatened to shoot it out with police officers if the district attorney did not do as he wanted and made “not-so-veiled” threats that people would be killed if he did not get the actions he demanded. The Office of Open Records handles requests for public records as well as legal matters pertaining to those requests, including appeals

when a request is denied. “The Right-to-Know Law continues to force accountability at every level of government and citizens continue to be the primary user of this sunshine law,” Terry Mutchler, executive director of the Office of Open Records, said. Mutchler said that for 2012, Luzerne County had a total of 186 appeals. Since the Office of Open Records began in 2009, Mutchler said, there have been 415 appeals from Luzerne County. “That’s not a (number) that’s necessarily higher than other counSee INMATE, Page 5A

Games of chance in focus


WILKES-BARRE — A man at the center of a city police officer’s suspension in February was cited with disorderly conduct after an altercation at O’Sullivan’s Pub on South Main Street early Sunday morning. City police allege Mathew Phillips, 22, of South Maple Avenue, Kingston, was involved in a fight with other people at about 1:34 a.m. Phillips was taken to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital for injuries he suffered in the fight, police said. The disorderly-conduct citation was not filed with a district judge as of Monday. Phillips could not be reached for comment on Monday.

Two months ago, officer Ken Jones cited Phillips with public drunkenness, harassment and disorderly conduct after Phillips showed up at the Hardware Bar intoxicated on Feb. 2. Phillips allegedly shoved and tried to punch a security officer at the bar and fought with Jones, according to the citations filed with District Judge Martin Kane. The Hardware Bar, which has been renamed Susquehanna Ale House, and O’Sullivan’s Pub are across the street from one another in the first block of South Main Street. Jones was placed on paid administrative leave after the Feb. 2 incident after it was alleged he used excessive force in arresting Phillips. Details on those allegations were not available Monday. Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis had said Jones is being investigated by the

state police at Wyoming, and if any charges are warranted, she will refer prosecution by the state Office of Attorney General due to a conflict of interest. State police Lt. Richard Krawetz, commander of the criminal investigations unit, said Monday the investigation is ongoing and “winding down.” “We have to do some more interviews and a few follow up interviews,” Krawetz said. City police cited Jones with harassment after he allegedly struck his father-in-law, Thomas Cusick, 59, in the back of the head on West Academy Street on March 23. Police later withdrew the harassment citation, according to court records. Phillips is scheduled for a summary trial on April 22 before Kane for the alleged incident on Feb. 2.

WILKES-BARRE — Two luxury vehicles swiped the same day from two dealerships have been linked to a multistate, high-end car-theft ring. A 2013 BMW X5, valued at $58,000, was stolen from Wyoming Valley Motors in Kingston and a 2010 BMW X5, valued at $39,000, was taken from Bennett Infiniti in Plains Township. The two BMWs were reported stolen on Dec. 11, a day after two men claiming to be father and son showed up at the dealerships near closing asking to look at the cars. State police Bureau of Criminal Investigations obtained a search warrant for phone and text records from four cell phones allegedly used by Anthony Jesus Quezada, 24, of Hialeah, Fla., Michael Quezada, 23, of North Bergen, N.J., and Juan Y. Burgos, 26, of New York City. Anthony Quezada and Burgos are facing car-theft charges in Berks and Montgomery counties, and Michael Quezada is facing car-theft charges

PYONGYANG, North Korea — North Koreans celebrated the birthday of their first leader Monday by dancing in plazas and snacking on peanuts, with little hint of the fiery language that has kept the international community fearful that a missile launch may be imminent. Pyongyang fired off a rocket ahead of the last anniversary of Kim Il Sung’s birth — the centennial — but this time the day was simply the start of a two-day holiday for Pyongyang residents who spilled into the streets. Girls in red and pink jackets skipped along

streets festooned with celebratory banners and flags and boys on inline skates took a break to slurp up bowls of shaved ice. There was no sense of panic in the North Korean capital, where very few locals have access to international broadcasts and foreign newspapers speculating about an imminent missile launch and detailing the international diplomacy under way to try to rein Pyongyang in. Elsewhere in the region, however, the focus remained on the threat of a launch as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wrapped up a tour to coordinate Washington’s response with Beijing, North Korea’s most important ally, as well as with Seoul and Tokyo. In Seoul, South Korean Defense Minister Kim Kwan-jin told a parliamentary committee Monday that North Korea still appeared poised to launch a missile from its east coast.


Oblivious to international tensions over a possible North Korean missile launch, Pyongyang residents spilled into the streets Monday to celebrate a major national holiday, the birthday of their first leader, Kim Il Sung.


The exiled leader of Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood denied Monday widespread accusations by other pro-rebel political factions that the group is seeking to impose its will on other members of the country’s opposition. The rare news conference by Mohammad Raid al-Shaqfa highlights the suspicions that his movement has raised in an already fractured opposition. The fundamentalist group has a powerful donor network among members in exile and supporters in oil-rich Gulf countries, especially Qatar. Many in the opposition say the Brotherhood uses its support and money as key levers for influence.

Attorney Robert Allard and the family of 15-year-old Audrie Pott also announced plans on Monday to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the three 16-year-old suspects as well as their parents and the family of a girl who hosted the Labor Day party where their daughter was attacked. Allard says that the photos show enough of the girl’s clothing had been removed to put markings on her body. He says she passed out after drinking alcohol mixed with Gatorade. Audrie’s father Lawrence Pott pleaded with witnesses to come forward at a San Jose news conference.


Iraq explosions kill at least 55
Mayhem comes less than a week before first vote since U.S. pulled out.
By ADAM SCHRECK Associated Press

People gather at the scene of a car bomb attack Monday in east Baghdad’s neighborhood of Kamaliya. Less than a week before Iraqis in much of the country are scheduled to vote in the country’s first elections since the 2011 U.S. troop withdrawal, a series of attacks across Iraq, many involving car bombs, has killed and wounded dozens of people, police said.

Bill limits abortion coverage

Republicans in the Pennsylvania House on Monday pushed out of committee a bill that would prevent most coverage for abortions under the health exchange in Pennsylvania being set up as part of the federal health care overhaul. The Health Committee voted 15-9 in favor of the proposal that provides exceptions only for victims of rape and incest or when the mother’s life is in peril. One Democrat voted for it. A Democratic sponsored amendment that would have added an exception for the mother’s health was defeated along party lines. Committee chairman Matt Baker, R-Bradford, said the health exception would represent a substantial change from the state’s longstanding public policy that does not permit public funding of abortions under most circumstances.

BAGHDAD — Insurgents in Iraq deployed a series of car bombs as part of highly coordinated attacks that cut across a wide swath of the country Monday, killing at least 55 on the deadliest day in nearly a month. The assault bore the hallmarks of a resurgent al-Qaida in Iraq and appeared aimed at sowing fear days before the first elections since U.S. troops withdrew. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but coordinated attacks are a favorite tactic of al-Qaida’s Iraq branch. Iraqi officials believe the insurgent group is growing stronger and increasingly coordinating with allies fight-

ing to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad across the border. They say rising lawlessness on the Syria-Iraq frontier and cross-border cooperation with a Syrian group, the Nusra Front, has improved the militants’ supply of weapons and foreign fighters. The intensifying violence, some of it related to the provincial elections scheduled for Saturday, is worrying for Iraqi officials and Baghdadbased diplomats alike. At least 14 candidates have been killed in recent weeks, including one slain in an apparent ambush Sunday. “Of course we are concerned about the violence in the country that has been increasing in the last weeks,” United Nations envoy Martin Kobler told The Associated Press. He condemned the bloodshed and urged Iraqi officials to push ahead with

the elections. “They should be free and fair, and every voter should go to the polls free of intimidation and fear,” he said. Iraqi Army Maj. Gen. Hassan al-Baydhani, the No. 2 official at Baghdad’s military command, said authorities managed to defuse three car bombs in Baghdad before they could go off. He described the violence as an attempt to derail the elections and intimidate voters. “The terrorists want to grab headlines as we approach election day,” he said. Monday’s attacks — most of them car bombings — were unusually broad in scope. Among the places where attacks erupted were the Sunni-dominated western Anbar province and Saddam Hussein’s hometown of Tikrit, the ethnically contested oil-rich city of Kirkuk

and towns in the predominantly Shiite south. The deadliest attacks hit Baghdad, where multiple car bombs and other explosions killed 25 people. In one attack, a parked car bomb exploded at a bus station in the eastern suburbs of Kamaliya, killing four and wounding 13. Qassim Saad, a teacher in a nearby school, said his pupils began screaming as the explosion shattered windows. He described a chaotic scene where security forces opened fire into the air upon arrival to disperse onlookers as overturned vegetable carts sat stained with blood amid wrecked storefronts. Saad blamed politicians and security forces for lapses that led to the attacks, saying that elected officials “are doing nothing to help the people and are only looking out for their benefits.”

WASHINGTON — The fate of a bipartisan Senate effort to subject more firearms buyers to background checks remains uncertain as seven Republicans amenable to a gun control debate are still likely to resist such an expansion. On an initial showdown over the gun control bill last week, 16 Republicans voted to reject a conservative effort to derail the measure, a roll call that allowed debate on the legislation to begin. Gun control supporters are hoping they can get enough votes from this group to help win approval for expanded background checks, the cornerstone of the effort by President Barack Obama and others to reduce firearms violence. So far, seven of the 16 have said they will oppose the bipartisan background check proposal, or are leaning toward doing so. Four said they will support it or are likely to, and the remaining members of that group haven’t indicated a position. The Senate starts debate today on an amendment by Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Patrick Toomey, R-Pa., that would expand background checks to cover transactions at gun shows and the Internet. The system, aimed at stopping criminals and others from getting firearms, now covers only sales handled by licensed gun dealers. “The Toomey-Manchin proposal, while well-intentioned, is not a solution to illegal gun violence. We already have major holes in the current” background check system, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Monday in a written statement.

Big tax deadline? Not so much for many out there
There’s no big penalty for being late, as long as you don’t owe.

Man killed in house blast

A man who was killed when a homemade explosive blew up at his California home was an eccentric who bicycled around his neighborhood dispensing anti-government conspiracy pamphlets, a neighbor said Monday. “He definitely seemed paranoid about things and people,” Donna Swift said. “It was getting more extreme.” A bomb squad, the FBI and other investigators descended on a quiet street of ranch-style homes in the Orange County city of Costa Mesa after the 52-year-old man died in a Sunday night blast. His name wasn’t immediately released.

WASHINGTON — Here’s a little secret for all you procrastinators on Tax Day: The Internal Revenue Service doesn’t like to talk about it, but as long as you don’t owe any additional taxes, there is no penalty for filing a few days late. The late filing penalty is usually 5 percent of the unpaid taxes for each month

— or part of a month — a return is late. That can add up quickly if you owe additional taxes. But what if the unpaid taxes are zero? Five percent of zero is … zero! However, if you wait more than three years to file, you forfeit your refund. So maybe it was better to file by Monday, after all. Besides, if you’re getting a refund, why wait? The IRS got a late start on tax season this year, thanks to a last-minute tax law passed by Congress on Jan. 1. But the deadline for filing returns didn’t change, so if you owe money, it’s time to settle up

with the government. In all, the IRS expects to process 149 million returns from individuals this year, including returns from people who file for 6-month extensions. About a quarter of returns are usually filed in the last three weeks before Tax Day. This year the IRS received more than 10 million electronically filed returns from Friday through Sunday. A look at this year’s filing season, through April 5: • Returns filed so far: 96.6 million. • Share of taxpayers getting a refund: 81 percent.

• Total amount of refunds issued so far: $214 billion. • Average refund: $2,755. • Average refund in 2012: $2,794. • The rise of computers: 89 percent of returns have been filed electronically. • Clinging to the past: That leaves 11 percent still filing paper returns. • These people are getting a refund: 29 percent of Americans in a Pew Research Center poll said they like doing their taxes. • These people are getting a big refund: 5 percent said they love doing their taxes.

• These people are not getting a refund: 26 percent said they hate doing their taxes. • As of March 9, the IRS detected 220,821 fraudulent returns. • Number of fraudulent returns involving identity theft: 85,385. • Amount of fraudulent refunds stopped by the IRS: $1.8 billion. • Ever wonder why tax laws are so complicated? Number of lobbyists registered to lobby Congress on taxes: 6,503. • Number of organizations that pay lobbyists to lobby Congress on taxes: 2,221.





Event to assess Pa. casinos’ odds of success
Local casino chief will be on panel discussing whether state keeps its number-two gaming status.

PHILADELPHIA — The eighth annual Pennsylvania Gaming Congress today at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel will focus on Pennsylvania becoming the second highest grossing state in casino revenues and whether it can main-

tain that position. Mike Bean, general manager at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in Plains Township, will be on a panel discussing whether the state can maintain its Bean number-two status. That discussion begins at 1:30. Among the topics are how Pennsylvania will continue to grow the industry, whether hotels and non-gaming amenities make sense, if regulatory

change is needed and whether state casino operators can weather the increasing competition from all neighboring states. Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs is in the process of constructing a hotel and convention center, and its parent company is also a player in Connecticut, where its flagship casino is located. Mohegan Sun also has partnered with Resorts Casino in Atlantic City to operate that historic boardwalk resort, has applied to operate a casino in western Massachusetts and has partnered with another group that’s looking to get a license to operate a downtown

Philadelphia casino. Also on the agenda today is the view from Wall Street; the scene of the gaming industry in Western Pennsylvania; an update on the legislative and regulatory matters being discussed in the state; and a presentation from the six applicants vying for the final casino license to be awarded in Philadelphia. Dan Meuser, a Jackson Township resident and the state secretary for the Department of Revenue, will offer the keynote speech during the event’s lunch. And the opening keynote address will be made by Bill Ryan, chairman of the state gaming control board.

Property Tax Relief
The average statewide property tax reduction for each household is expected to be about $200 this year, according to the state’s budget secretary. Charles B. Zogby on Monday certified that more than $778 million in gaming revenue will be available for property tax relief this year. Some of that will go toward the enhanced Property Tax/Rent Rebate program.

ties, but we do see a lot from Luzerne County,” Mutchler said. “There is a lot of Rightto-Know Law attention paid in Luzerne County because citizens seem very engaged in their government.” He said that number does not include requests that have been processed in total – only appeals. Mutchler noted in the annual report that the office may be in jeopardy because of hurdles involving transparency. “Frankly, the future of true transparency and providing public records to Pennsylvanians is shrouded in uncertainty,” he said. The office routinely decides whether a record is a public record, processes appeals, litigates court cases, responds to inquiries, files enforcement actions and conducts medications, hearings and training. In 2012, the office responded to 785 requests for its own records. According to the report:

• 248 appeals were granted, 889 were dismissed, 477 were denied, 78 are pending; • 56 percent of appeals are made by citizens, 31 percent by inmates, 8 percent by companies, 4 percent by media and 1 percent by government officials; • 25 percent of appeals made involved county agencies, 19 percent school districts, 16 percent by townships; • Philadelphia accounted for 59 percent of appeals involving local agencies. Types of records ordered to be released by the Office of Open Records include: • Inspection reports of school cafeterias; • The cost of agency investigations and lawsuits including those involving allegations of sexual harassment, misappropriation of funds and discrimination; • Records demonstrating how property-tax assessments are determined; • Government e-mails to determine how, why and when money is spent and to ensure agencies are run in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

in Berks County, according to court records. Michael Quezada also faces similar charges in Berger and Mercer counties, New Jersey, court records say. A law-enforcement source close to the investigation said the three men are “persons of interest” in the car thefts at Wyoming Valley Motors and Bennett Infiniti because of the similarities of how luxury vehicles were stolen from dealerships in the greater Philadelphia

area and New Jersey. According to the search warrant recently signed by Luzerne County Judge Richard Hughes: Two men showed up at Wyoming Valley Motors about 7:45 p.m. Dec. 10 and inquired about a BMW X5 for sale. They asked to take the vehicle for a test ride but were told they couldn’t because the dealership was closing for the day. A salesman showed them the interior and engine compartment of the BMW. The two men said they would return the next day, Dec. 11, when the dealership noticed the same BMW missing from the lot.

Two men who identified themselves as a father and son from Hazleton arrived at Bennett Infiniti sometime between 7 and 7:30 p.m. Dec. 10, just before closing, and asked about a 2010 BMW. An address and phone number the two men gave to a Bennett salesman were fake, the search warrant says. State police allege the two men took the BMW ignition key from the salesman’s jacket when the salesman was getting a CarFax report on the vehicle. The search warrant states Reading police in Berks Coun-

ty charged Anthony Quezada and Burgos after they allegedly switched keys for two 2013 BMW X6s from a dealership in Reading on Dec. 18, when they showed up just before closing asking to look at the two vehicles. The three men allegedly used the same scheme at a dealership in Conshohocken, showing up just before closing on Jan. 13, asking to test drive a 2010 Porsche, according to the search warrant. No charges have been filed for the thefts of the two BMWs in Luzerne County.

DALLAS TWP. — Contention continues over the cheerleading program in the Dallas School District. At the school board’s regular meeting Monday, parent Michael Alves read a letter that had been sent to his wife by board solicitor Ben Jones III. Jones’s letter accused Alves’ wife, Lisa, of harassing school administrators and warned that her behavior might make her liable to criminal prosecution. Alves and his wife, along with other parents, have spoken out against head cheerleading coach Suzanne Powell. Alves disagreed with the letter and said his wife was not harassing or rude. “I’m proud of my daughter and my wife,” he said. He also said he did not appreciate the effort to intimidate her. Lisa Alves said posts on the cheerleading team’s Facebook posts had bothered her daughter. “My daughter has reason to be upset,” she said. Another parent asked that a more qualified person be put in place as varsity cheerleading coach. She also suggested the

district adopt a code of ethics for coaches. In a close vote, board members approved a resolution that appointed coaches for the 2013-14 fall season that included the coaches for the controversial cheerleading program. Board members Maureen Matiska, Fred Parry and Karen Kyle voted against the measure. Board member Larry Schuler was absent from the meeting.

PLAINS TWP. — Nutrition Inc. will once again be the food service management contractor for the Wilkes-Barre Area Career & Technical Center after the school’s joint operating committee approved the renewal of the company’s contract Monday.

The company has been providing food service to the school for about nine years.

DA wants Lehman Township dissolves its municipal authority Melvin to serve time
By CAMILLE FIOTI Times Leader Correspondent The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Suspended state Supreme Court Justice Joan Orie Melvin deserves a public corruption sentence similar to that being served by her sister, state Sen. Jane Orie, a prosecutor said Monday. Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr.’s brief statement accompanied sentencing memorandums his staff filed for Melvin, 56, and a third sister, Janine Orie, 58, Melvin’s former aide. They were convicted in February on theft of services and other charges for misusing the state senator’s staff and Melvin’s lower court staff to illegally campaign for Melvin when she ran for the state’s highest court in 2003 and 2009. Sen. Orie was convicted last year of similarly misusing her own staff on her own campaigns and is now serving 2½ to 10 years in prison. The former lawmaker was acquitted of ordering her staff to campaign for Melvin, however. Melvin and Janine Orie face scheduled sentencing May 7 and Zappala’s office argued both sisters deserve sentences in the aggravated range of the sentencing guidelines. “Regarding defendant Joan Orie Melvin, the actions of all three co-defendants are coextensive; therefore, we would expect a sentence similar to that given Jane Orie,” Zappala said in the statement.

LEHMAN TWP. — The supervisors passed a resolution Monday to dissolve the Lehman Township Municipal Authority and transfer its operations to the Dallas Area Municipal Authority. The LTMA was formed in

1985 out of a need to provide sewer service to residents in the Oakhill subdivision. Ron Ritts, chairman of the LTMA said the authority had been mostly inactive for some time, since DAMA took over maintenance of the pump stations and right of ways. Jack Haley, attorney for the LTMA, said the only change

residents should experience is a slight reduction in their sewage bills, since the township will no longer be taking a cut. The board discussed the possibility of starting a spring or fall clean-up program in the future. Borough Secretary Marian DeAngelis said she would help monitor the proposed three-day program by collecting fees and

checking identification. Unlike the township’s current recycling drop-off program, the proposed annual clean-up would be for township residents only. The board said the recycling grants that the township can apply for at the end of the year can be used to fund the proposed clean-up program, which may begin later this year

or next spring. The board also discussed the possibility of providing a tire and electronics drop-off service for residents. “We’re not looking to make money,” said Chairman Dave Sutton. “We’re just looking to provide a service for the residents.”

PRINGLE — Residents are reminded that 2013 burn stickers are available at the borough building, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Residents must purchase burn stickers annually as per the borough’s burn ordinance. LUZERNE — Residents are reminded that yard waste collection is only for those who have a current garbage sticker. Next pickup will be April 28. Small amounts of yard waste will be collected by the street department every other Monday after that. Residents may dispose of brush and yard waste in an open container; no green trash bags will be accepted. This does not include grass clippings, dirt and rocks. Brush must be tied in bundles no longer than 3 feet and open containers are not to exceed 30 pounds. Yard waste should be placed curbside by 6 a.m. For information, call the borough building at 287-7633.

NEWPORT TWP. — The Luzerne County Fourth District Democratic Committee will hold a Meet the Candidates dinner rally on April 26 from 6 to 10 p.m. at Alden Manor, Middle Road. There will be food, refreshments, music and an introduction of local and county candidates. Donation of $25 includes door prize ticket. For information, call Gale at 814-5465 or Karen at 735-2989.* PLYMOUTH — The Plymouth Republican Organization will meet Thursday at 7 p.m. at Happy Pizza, Plymouth. Elected judges, inspectors and committee persons are requested to attend. A brief discussion will be held on upcoming events. WILKES-BARRE — The Committee to Elect Joe Caffrey to the Wilkes-Barre Area School Board has scheduled meet-andgreets for May 2, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Riverside Cafe, Old River Road, Wilkes-Barre, and May 9, 7 to 9 p.m. at at the Chicken Coop, Wilkes-Barre Boulevard.

Finish line scene of explosions, chaos and gore
Scenes like a war zone face runners and spectators at end of Boston Marathon.
The Boston Herald


tiMeS LeADer

BOSTON — Runners who had just finished their 26.2-mile ordeal, already on the verge of collapse, were stunned and shocked by the explosions that rocked the finish line Monday afternoon. “I was just finished and collecting my medal when it went off,” said runner Mike McMahan of Maple Grove, Minn. “Then the next one went off 10 seconds later. I saw flames on that one. I didn’t see flames on the first one. My wife was at the 25 and a half mark when she was stopped. She had to borrow a cellphone to text me she was all right. This is my first Boston and my 22nd marathon. This was an investment, not a cheap adventure. I will remember this, but not for the reasons I want. I will remember this.” Greg Meyer of Michigan, the

1983 Boston men’s champion, was running with his sons, Danny and Jay. “I grabbed my medal, went to the VIP tent to get my clothes and boom,” Meyer said. “I told Danny, who was struggling the last three miles. I said, ‘Thank God you kept running because the three of us would have been there right about then.’ We all ran the whole way together. “This is so sad and I feel so bad for the people. This is an event that brings people together, not for this kind of stuff. We don’t need this.” A runner in his mid-30s who said he was an Army veteran from Maryland said, “I’ve lived through Afghanistan five times and Iraq twice. I can’t believe it happened here.” Alicia Shambo, 51, of Hopkinton, Mass., was handing out Mylar blankets at the finish line when the explosion occurred. Shambo, a former U.S. Navy medic, said she rushed to get people to safety. “The extent of the injuries is

just horrible,” Shambo told the Boston Herald outside Tufts Medical Center emergency room. “Extremities just dangling.” Shambo said she aided a 20-something woman who had shrapnel lodged in her lower leg. “She is going to be OK,” said Shambo. “I can’t say that for everybody.” Rachel Fox, a Herald reporter who was interviewing people at

the finish line several hundred feet from the blasts, said, “I heard the bang. I thought it was a celebratory thing. Then I saw the smoke. All in one, the ground started shaking, and it was completely quiet for a couple of seconds. The first bang was followed by a second bang. My first thought was run … I knew something wasn’t right. “People were screaming and crying. I saw people fall to the

ground. I wasn’t sure if it was runners falling from exhaustion or injuries,” Fox said. Chris McIntosh, publisher of the Boston Business Journal who was at the Lenox Hotel near the scene, said, “It’s chaos down here. Two bombs just went off at the finish line within five seconds of each other. There must be casualties. Now I’m seeing fire trucks and ambulances racing down Boylston Street toward

the scene.” Stunned and crying people could be seen walking away from the scene down Beacon Street. At the Marathon finish line, City Council President Steve Murphy said he was “30 to 40 feet” from the two explosions. “I heard an explosion and then another one 15 seconds later,” Murphy told the Herald. The councilor said he saw people injured and several people being taken out in ambulances. “I saw a guy coming towards me with blood on his face” a shaken Murphy said. Parker Wellington, 24, of Cambridge, Mass., was at the corner of Clarendon and Boylston with his family waiting for his sister Laura to cross the finish line when the explosions went off. “One second it was just normal, then it sounded like a cannon going off,” he said. “There was a huge cloud of smoke down one side of the finish line.” Then 10 or 15 seconds later, the same thing happened.”

“They just kept filling up with more and more casualties,” Lisa Davey said. “Most everybody was conscious. They were very dazed.” The fiery twin blasts took place almost simultaenously and about 100 yards apart, knocking spectators and at least one runner off their feet, shattering windows and sending dense plumes of smoke rising over the street and through the fluttering national flags lining the course. When the second bomb went off, the spectators’ cheers turned to screams. As sirens blared, emergency workers and National Guardsmen who had been assigned to the race for crowd control began climbing over and tearing down temporary fences to get to the blast site. Blood stained the pavement, and huge shards were missing from window panes as high as three stories. Boston police said two people were killed. Hospitals reported at least 134 injured, at least 15 of them critically. About 23,000 runners took part in the race, one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious marathons. One of Boston’s biggest annual events, the race winds up near Copley Square, not far from the landmark Prudential Center and the Boston Public Library. It is held on Patriots Day, which commemorates the first battles of the American Revolution, at Concord and Lexington in 1775. Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis asked people to stay indoors or go back to their hotel rooms and avoid crowds as bomb squads methodically checked parcels and bags left along the race route. He said investigators didn’t know precisely where the bombs were planted or whether they were hidden in mailboxes or trash cans. He said authorities had received “no specific intelligence that anything was going to hap-

In this image from video provided by WBZ TV, spectators and runners run from what was described as twin explosions that shook the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday.

pen” at the race. The Federal Aviation Administration barred low-flying aircraft from within 3.5 miles of the site. Obama was briefed on the explosions by Homeland Security adviser Lisa Monaco. Obama also told Mayor Tom Menino and Gov. Deval Patrick that his administration would provide whatever support was needed, the White House said. A few miles away from the finish line and around the same time, a fire broke out at the John F. Kennedy Library. The police commissioner said it may have been caused by an incendiary device but didn’t appear to be related to the bombings. The first loud explosion occurred on the north side of Boylston Street, just before the photo bridge that marks the finish line. The second explosion could be heard a few seconds later. They occurred about four hours into the race and two hours after the men’s winner crossed the line. By that point, more than 17,000 of the runners had finished the race, but thousands of others were farther back along the course. quickly,” she said. Whitney saw only one victim with moderate injuries as she and her family were leaving. She saw many more graphic photos of more seriously injured victims posted on Twitter, she said. Whitney, a student at Luzerne County Community College, said she was grateful for the experience to qualify and run in the marathon. “But it’s just crazy to feel so accomplished but to feel so sad for the victims and their families.” A volunteer’s perspective Jim Moran, of Clarks Green in Lackawanna County, was working a security detail at the marathon Monday, as he and several friends have done for many years. “Our station was 50 yards from the finish line. … About 50 yards beyond the finish line, an explosion went off. Then 100 to 150 yards behind us, another explosion. There was glass all over our intersection,” Moran recounted via phone from

The attack may have been timed for maximum carnage: The four-hour mark is typically a crowded moment near the finish line because of the slow-butsteady recreational runners completing the race and because of all the relatives and friends clustered around to cheer them on. Runners in the medical tent for treatment of dehydration or other race-related ills were pushed out to make room for victims of the bombing. A senior U.S. intelligence official said the two other explosive devices found nearby were being dismantled. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the findings publicly. A woman who was a few feet from the second bomb, Brighid Wall, 35, of Duxbury, said that when it exploded, runners and spectators froze, unsure of what to do. Her husband threw their children to the ground, lay on top of them and another man lay on top of them and said, “Don’t get up, don’t get up.” After a minute or so without another explosion, Wall said, she and her family headed to a Starbucks and out the back door his hotel room early Monday evening. “We had to rip down all the barriers so people could escape the scene. There were people with bleeding hands and more severe injuries,” he said. Moran said many of the security guards in his detail are volunteer firefighters and helped direct spectators as well as emergency vehicles arriving on scene. Others were asked to “go up a street and clear people out. After we secured the area, there were about 25 police cars there.” He described the explosions as “startling. It’s an amazing sporting event. To see that happen … I was an EMT way back when, and I work with a lot of medical personnel. To see that many people covered in glass … ,” Moran said, his voice trailing off. What was going through his mind after the explosions? “After the second one, you hope there’s not a third one,” he said.

Bill Iffrig, 78, lies on the ground as police officers react to a second explosion at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday. Iffrig, of Lake Stevens, Wash., was running his third Boston Marathon and near the finish line when he was knocked down by one of two bomb blasts.


through an alley. Around them, the windows of the bars and restaurants were blown out. She said she saw six to eight people bleeding profusely, including one man who was kneeling, dazed, with blood trickling down his head. Another person was on the ground covered in blood and not moving. “My ears are zinging. Their ears are zinging,” Wall said. “It was so forceful. It knocked us to the ground.” Out in time Sean Robbins of Shavertown had left the finish line with his mother, Joanna Robbins, and his nephew, Blake Williams, “not long before the explosions,” he said. After they left the race area, they stopped for coffee and boarded the T (rail system). They learned of the explosions from a transit-authority official while trying to transfer from the orange line to the green line, which had been shut down because of the bombings. The explosions took place in the very place Robbins’ mother and nephew had been viewing the race. “It’s tough to get your head around,” said Robbins, who ran his first marathon in Boston. “It reminds me a lot of 9/11 — a beautiful day … and to have this horrible event happen.” Mountain Top native Amanda Grinavich, 25, was watching the marathon in an area near Fenway Park. Living in the city and work-

Competitors and race volunteers were crying as they fled the chaos. Authorities went onto the course to carry away the injured, while race stragglers were rerouted away from the smoking site. Roupen Bastajian, a state trooper from Smithfield, R.I., had just finished the race when he heard the blasts. “I started running toward the blast. And there were people all over the floor,” he said. “We

started grabbing tourniquets and started tying legs. A lot of people amputated. … At least 25 to 30 people have at least one leg missing, or an ankle missing, or two legs missing.” At Massachusetts General Hospital, said Alisdair Conn, chief of emergency services, said: “This is something I’ve never seen in my 25 years here … this amount of carnage in the civilian population. This is what we expect from war.”

Whitney immediately called her father via cellphone and learned he was uninjured. Her mom’s cellphone battery had died, but Jane and Paul ran toward each other, and the family was soon reunited safely. That was Paul’s first concern, he said. He described the scene as chaotic after the second bomb exploded. Whitney said Boston police directed them and others to a street that runs parallel to Boylston Street as they evacuated the area. “Their response was incredible.

to walk by there for a little while,” she said. “It’s crazy to be watching the news and seeing these things happening where you live. But the people of Boston are tough people. So I’m not worried,” Grinavich said.

Anti-Amendment propaganda is psychological crime
HENRY FORD defined psychological crime as the abuse of people’s most noble motivations to manipulate them for dishonest and selfserving purposes. Ford himself, however, became a psychological crime victim and unwitting accomplice when he believed, and then re-published as The International Jew, anti-Semitic propaganda from a Tsarist propagandist named Boris Brasol. No citizen, therefore, should ever dare think himself or herself too intelligent to believe a well-packaged lie. The role of propaganda in drawing the United States into the Spanish-American War and First World War, along with Adolf Hitler’s perpetration of the most monstrous psychological crimes in history, reinforces the conclusion that a basic understanding of psychological warfare should become a mandatory element of high school civics classes. The propaganda that is now coming from the enemies of the Second Amendment is a good current-issues case study. A recent advertisement from Mayors Against Illegal Guns features a “gun owner,” complete with beard, pickup truck, and Southern drawl, who supports universal background checks. He does this while he holds a shotgun in an unsafe direction, and with its chamber closed so it is not

possible to tell whether there is a live round inside. This gruesome psychological warfare blunder tells us that this man is clearly not a gun owner, and his father never taught him to hunt as he claims. He is almost certainly an actor whom billionaire mayor Michael Bloomberg hired to portray a stereotype of the people whom President Obama says “cling to guns and religion.” Wilkes-Barre’s Mayor, Thomas Leighton, should seriously reconsider his membership in this organization. President Obama posed with a shotgun to suggest that the Second Amendment protects the right to shoot clay targets, while New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that nobody needs ten bullets to kill a deer. These are lies by omission, because the Second Amendment does not relate to sporting uses of firearms. Former Governor Ed Rendell said of the Sandy Hook school shooting, “The good thing about Newtown is, it was so horrific that I think it galvanized Americans to a point where the intensity on our side is going to match the intensity on their side.” It sounds, quite frankly, like Mr. Rendell is glad that Adam Lanza murdered 26 people instead of being shut down at two fatalities by an armed staff member, which is what happened when

TIME-HONORED tradition in the editorial writing business is “shooting the wounded,” a euphemism that roughly translates to piling on when a person finds misfortune. We will try to resist. Take Ron Johnson, until recently the bold and even revolutionary CEO of J.C. Penney, the middle-market department store chain and familiar face in malls across America. Penney has been around since 1902 and has had its headquarters just north of Dallas in Plano since 1987. We offered optimism for a corporate neighbor and key North Texas employer when it brought Johnson aboard in 2011. He came with a head full of ideas from triumphs developing Apple Inc.’s stores and Target’s transformation from big-box budget store to something decidedly more hip and happening. Instead, he joined the wounded, brought down by ideas that alienated more shoppers than they attracted and the hubris to resist leavening his bold strokes with realistic data analysis. The customer might not always be right, but in the retail game, the customer almost always has a choice. Johnson’s philosophy, born of

CEO forgot that customer rules

Assistant Principal Joel Myrick used a pistol to arrest Luke Woodham at Pearl High School. “Armed Teacher Stops School Shooter” is not the kind of headline that Rendell and Rahm “Never let a good crisis go to waste” Emanuel need to support their agenda. Plenty of people in England were similarly glad the death toll on the Lusitania (1915) was as high as it was, and for similar reasons. Images of dead American women and children, as propagated by cartoonist William Allen Rogers, were the best way to sell a world war to a nation that had no stake in it. These images evoked visceral hatred of Germany while they discouraged rational inquiries into the well-founded suspicion, and now proven fact, that the Lusitania’s cargo included ammunition whose sole purpose was to kill German soldiers. This psychological crime killed more than 100,000 Americans along with countless Germans with whom we had no legitimate quarrel. We need to remember this whenever anybody tries to exploit a tragedy for political gain, whether it consists of Rogers’ “Little Lost Children of the Lusitania” or the President’s posturing with the families of Adam Lanza’s victims.

past success, was that he would not wait for the customer to tell him what kind of Penney to build. Instead, he would remake the chain based on his intuition of what they should want. Sales reports didn’t dissuade him. With New Coke finality, the customers rejected Johnson’s concept of specialty shops within each Penney store. Instead of discounts and coupons, Johnson implemented “low everyday prices,” take ’em or leave ’em. As bargain shoppers fled, Penney’s revenue fell 25 percent last year. The irony is that Johnson’s concepts, over time, might have worked. Even a Johnson critic like retailing legend Allen Questrom was impressed personally; yet he advised Penney board members to test them before rolling them out everywhere. “I like the shops,” he said, “but I’m not the customer. The question is: Do J.C. Penney’s customers like it?” Had Johnson shown the patience to test-market his shopswithin-a-store, no-coupon ideas at selected locations, he could have evaluated customer reaction and, if necessary, adjusted. Instead, he went all in before the cards were dealt.

Letter to editor seen as degrading, close-minded S

Editorial board
PRASHANT SHITUT President and CEO JOSEPH BUTKIEWICZ Vice President/Executive Editor

peaking as a “young person of America,” I believe every human being was created in God’s image. One cannot try and place blame on gays or lesbians based on their own views of God and society. The author of a recent letter to the editor should not generalize the younger generation as closed-minded. As a 19-year-old, trust me, we know more about what’s happening in this day and age than one could even grasp. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but this article seemingly intended to slam and degrade gays and lesbians. Who you love is entirely up to you and most of the time you cannot help who you fall in love with. How is gay marriage a privilege? You speak of it as them receiving special rights. What gives you the qualifications to classify who can and cannot get married? As far as I’m concerned, this article is judgmental and nosy. Regardless of people’s preferences, they are still people. Our ancestors enslaved innocent African Americans because of the belief and our “right” that we were superior. In my eyes, the accusations and judgement placed on gays and lesbians comes from a simialr viewpoint. No one person is more superior than another and no one person

has the right to judge another. As a firm believer in God, no one has the right to downgrade this issue but Him. If this article is written based on the teachings of God then leave his judgement with him and don’t try to do his work. The only thing “perverse” about this situation is the amount of people who think they have the right to place themselves above any gay or lesbian. Anything that is not “socially accepted” is fought and met with strong opinions. Are women’s rights not established? Are people of black ethnicity still slaves? Things change. Society changes. Either roll with the punches or be stuck bitter in the past. This article is full of strong opinions and this is my strong opinion. No one is forcing their lifestyles or beliefs on you, so my advice for the author is to grow up and look around. There have always been gays and lesbians, it’s just now that society is more accepting and open about it. With all the corruption and bad people in the world, this is one of the least of my concerns.

Lawmakers suggest terrorism involved in Boston
By DAVID ESPO AP Special Correspondent

WASHINGTON — With little official information to guide them, members of Congress strongly suggested on Monday that the deadly Boston Marathon explosions were acts of terrorism and vowed to bring anyone responsible to justice. “My understanding is that it’s a terrorist incident,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein told reporters, saying she had been in contact with U.S. intelligence agencies. Feinstein, who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, said intelligence officials reported no advance warning that “there was an attack on the way.” Sen. Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, the senior Republican on the panel, issued a written statement that said, “As the evidence mounts that this was a terrorist attack, our intelligence and law enforcement agencies must do whatever is necessary to find and interrogate those responsible so

we can prevent similar attacks.” The remarks stood in contrast to President Barack Obama’s own brief statement at the White House, where he made no mention of terrorists or terrorism as a possible cause of the bombings. Two other members of the intelligence panel, Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Angus King, I-Maine, said that based on initial press reports that “multiple improvised explosive devices may have been involved at this high profile national event bear the hallmarks of a terrorist attack.” Majority Leader Harry Reid said on the Senate floor that Obama had spoken with officials in Massachusetts and “pledged every federal resource available … to bring justice to the perpetrators….” House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said “we will ensure that justice will be done” as the casualty toll mounted in explosions blamed for at least two deaths and dozens of injuries

The flag on the East Front of the U.S. Capitol is lowered to halfstaff on Capitol Hill on Monday, in Washington, after the explosions at the Boston Marathon.


WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama vowed justice for the victims of the Boston bomb attacks on Monday but cautioned against the urge to “jump to conclusions” before a full investigation is finished. “We still do not know who did this or why, and people shouldn’t jump to conclusions before we have all the facts,” Obama told reporters. “But make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this. We will find out who did this, we will find out why they did this. Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups, will feel the full weight of justice.” The remarks came just over three hours after bomb blasts along the route of the Boston Marathon claimed the lives of at least two people and injured at least two dozen more, some of them seriously. Early reports from the Boston police suggest that one or more bombs may have been

planted in garbage cans in time to go off as runners neared the finish line of the race. Obama The White House has promised all its resources to the investigation of and response to the explosions. Obama is being briefed by senior officials and has directed the FBI director and Homeland Security secretary to make all needed resources available to state and local government agencies. As details continued to emerge, Obama appeared in the White House briefing room to pledge his efforts to find those responsible and bring them to justice. He declined to take questions about whether the bombs were part of a terrorist plot and did not speculate on who might be behind the attacks.

bridges. County Manager Robert Lawton was so impressed with Gibbons’ skill and work ethic he designated him acting county manager if someone is needed to run the county in his absence. During his first year as manager, Lawton has relied heavily on Gibbons to handle and develop projects and plans. Lawton told Gibbons in a letter that he was accepting his resignation with “regret and reluctance.” “You have served the public faithfully throughout your 12year tenure here, often under very trying circumstances – during hardships both natural and man-made,” Lawton said. Gibbons’ assistance and support of his colleagues during the home rule transition will be remembered, Lawton said, adding that many will wish him well while wishing he would change his mind about leaving. “You always looked beyond the boundaries of your job and your agency for opportunities

to improve public service. You always began with the question, ‘Is this good for Luzerne County?’ You are a leader of integrity, persistence and vision.” Gibbons, 40, of Plains Township, said he made the decision to leave with a “heavy heart.” He declined to discuss his specific plans but said he will be supervising about 90 employees. “The call to public service is an important part of my life, and I consider myself extremely fortunate to have used my skills to help advance the region my family has called home for six generations,” Gibbons said. He said his decision had nothing to do with the county’s switch to home rule, its “extreme challenges” or Lawton’s leadership effectiveness. “My decision is based solely on career development and advancement,” said Gibbons, a 12-year county employee. “It was the hardest decision I ever had to make in my career.” Gibbons, who is paid $79,277 annually, will remain with the county through May 3. He was known by colleagues for his candor and aggressive

hunt for ways to save money and find revenue. County Assistant Solicitor Vito DeLuca said Gibbons’ departure will be a “tremendous loss to the county.” “He’s very intelligent, honest, an extremely hard worker and very knowledgeable about not just his trade, which is engineering, but so many other aspects of county business,” DeLuca said. Gibbons was hired as a staff engineer in 2001, promoted to assistant chief county engineer in 2005 and became chief engineer in 2007. He previously held engineering positions at Virginia-based Branch Highways and PennDOT District 5 in Allentown. During his time as county chief engineer, Gibbons oversaw courthouse restoration, at least 18 county bridge replacements and the repaving of about 30 miles of county roads. He’s often the go-to guy for preparing and evaluating cumbersome public requests for proposals, leases and contracts. The county engineer’s office employs three engineers, though Gibbons said Chris Bel-

leman is the only other statelicensed engineer on staff. In addition to the soon-to-bevacant chief engineer position, the county budget funds an up to $85,000 operational-services division-head position required by home rule. This division

head will oversee engineering, roads and bridges, recreation, solid waste/recycling, planning/zoning, emergency management, 911, building and grounds and security. Gibbons said he believes the new home-rule administration

is advancing a plan for financial recovery and streamlining operations. “It’s not a sprint. It’s a marathon. It’s going to take a few years to see the real benefit of the success that the team’s had,” he said.

agement staff that has that kind of historical knowledge, that’s a problem,” said county planning/zoning director Adrian Merolli, who serves on the flood protection authority along with county Councilman Stephen A. Urban and three citizens. Merolli said Gibbons has “vast experience and knowledge” on the levee operation. “You can find someone else, but the learning curve will be huge,” Merolli said. Brozena, who worked for the county 33 years, has said he would provide assistance in a flood, but county officials

say they can’t rely solely on someone who is not on staff and may not be available. A local engineering grasp of the levee is crucial because the 15-mile wall protects at least 14,200 properties from Susquehanna River flooding. The number of protected properties is likely higher because the figures are based on the 1972 Agnes Flood zone, when the Susquehanna crested at 40.9 feet. The levee held back a record 42.66-foot Susquehanna in September 2011. The levee runs from Exeter to Plymouth on the Susquehanna’s west side and from the county courthouse in Wilkes-Barre to Hanover Township on the east bank. Gibbons said his understanding of the levee and other county projects is

“what made me struggle the most” deciding to leave. “I realize I have some institutional knowledge that nobody else — including the manager — has,” Gibbons said. The public may not realize the depth of his involvement watching over the levee during flooding, he acknowledged. “When we have an emergency, I’m usually the guy out in the field and less the guy in front of the cameras,” he said.

Gibbons said another engineer can and must get up to speed. “The authority will need to go out and find someone who has detailed experience. I learned it, and someone else will,” Gibbons said. While new leadership is needed, levee crews are equipped to staff the levee and pump stations if the Susquehanna rises, he said. “It’s not like we don’t have other people here who know how to run the pump stations and monitor the levee. I think I’ve had the opportunity to help develop the levee staff so that they’re experts in their respective parts of their responsibilities,” Gibbons said. As it did in September 2011, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers also would likely send representatives here to provide assistance if the Susquehanna

reaches flood stage , officials said. The Army Corps of Engineers is wrapping up repairs of levee damage caused by the record 2011 flooding. The agency is expected to spend $2 million to $3 million fixing damaged floodgates, boils and other scars. A local engineer also is needed to ensure levee maintenance and inspections are completed to keep the levee system certified, including work on pump stations. Three people were interviewed for Brozena’s position. Merolli said the authority is still discussing how to proceed. The authority has historically shared resources with the county — Gibbons’ recent assistance is an example — because the levee and flood control were viewed as the responsibility of both.

Explosions come after Africans Desisa, Jeptoo win annual run
By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer

Runners start the 117th running of the Boston Marathon, in Hopkinton, Mass., on Monday morning. Several hours later, a pair of bombs exploded near the finish line in Boston, killing three people.

BOSTON — The Kenyans finally face a challenge to their dominance of the Boston Marathon, and it’s from their East African neighbors. Ethiopia’s Lelisa Full coverage Desisa took the title of the Boston in the 117th edition Marathon of the world’s oldest bombing marathon on Monday, begins on Page 1A. winning a three-way sprint down Boylston Street to finish in 2 hours, 10 minutes, 22 seconds and snap a string of three consecutive Kenyan victories. “Here we have a relative newcomer,” said Ethiopia’s Gebregziabher Gebremariam, who finished third. “Everything changes.” In just his second race at the 26.2mile distance, Desisa finished 5 seconds ahead of Kenya’s Micah Kogo to earn $150,000 and the traditional olive wreath before a gruesome bombing near the marathon’s finish line left everyone stunned. American Jason Hartmann finished fourth for the second year in a row. “It was more of a tactical race, the Ethiopian versus the Kenyans. That fight played out very well,” defending champion Wesley Korir, a Kenyan citizen and U.S. resident, said after finishing fifth. Race day got started with 26 seconds of silence in honor of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. A little more than 2 hours later, the lead runners passed the Mile 26 marker, which was decorated with the Newtown, Conn., seal and dedicated to the memory of those killed there. But it finished with another horrific tragedy. Two bombs exploded in the packed

The NHL postponed Monday night’s Boston Bruins game at TD Garden because of the Boston Marathon bombings. No makeup date has been scheduled, and no other games around the country were immediately called off. Major League Baseball said no changes were planned to ceremonies at ballparks around the country to commemorate Jackie Robinson Day. Spokesman Pat Courtney said several teams informed the league they planned moments of silence The NHL said it “wishes to express its sympathy to all affected by the tragic events.” Bruins President Cam Neely, a long-

time former Boston player, said the postponement was made in consultation with city, state and league officials. He said authorities are still gathering information and “it is vital they have all resources available for their investigation.” Two bombs exploded near the marathon finish line Monday, killing two people, injuring dozens and sending authorities rushing to aid wounded spectators. A senior U.S. intelligence official said two other explosive devices were found nearby. Fans arriving early to TD Garden for the Bruins’ game against the Ottawa Senators were met by police who were in the area to secure the arena and a

Royals keep their unbeaten string going

HANOVER TWP. — Holy Redeemer played more innings Monday than in its two previous games combined. And while the offensive outburst wasn’t as spectacular, it was effective nonetheless. The Royals banged out five hits in a four-run second inning and Kayla Swanek fell a triple short of the cycle as they defeated Hanover Area 8-1 in Division 3 of Wyoming Valley Conference softball. Swanek paced Redeemer (3-0) with a double to start the four-run inning. She added a two-run homer over the



ing unearned. About the only thing missing from Swanek’s 3-for-4 performance at the plate was a triple. But Redeemer coach Mark Senchak wasn’t going to ask for anything more from the sophomore. “Nothing,” Senchak said of Swanek, who had six assists on groundouts. “There’s nothing more Kayla could have done today. She was command-

left-center field fence in the fifth, pushing the lead to 8-0. She was also the winning pitcher, with the only Hanover Area run be-

ing in the circle.I know she has higher expectations, but she did what I wanted her to do and that was keep the game where we had a chance to win it.” RBI singles by Kaitlyn Kaluzny and Jen Ringsdorf brought in two runs in the fourth. Kasey Miller plated another on a fielder’s choice, while Biz Eaton singled and eventually scored on a wild pitch. Meanwhile, Hanover Area (3-1) didn’t generate much offense until Caitlyn Bogart and Haylee Bobos hit consecutive singles in the fourth. Toni Elick and Morgan Konek did the same

Hill won’t do ‘SNF’ theme
The Associated Press



Chasing Hendrick ‘not in spirit’ of rules?
By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Faith Hill is out of the football game. The country star announced Monday morning on Twitter that she won’t be doing the “Sunday Night Football” theme song this year. She’s been featured at the top of the broadcast for six years now. Hill says in her tweet it’s been

an honor to appear on the NBC show, but that it’s time to “let someone else rock the open. Difficult decision. Kinda emotional.” “Sunday Night Football” executive producer Fred Gaudelli tweeted “great love and appreciation” to Hill for her participation over the years. He made no mention of what the show plans to do with the opening.

Faith Hill announced on Twitter that she will not be performing the “SNF” theme this season.


CHARLOTTE, N.C. — If garage gossip is to be believed, somebody dropped a dime on NASCAR champion Brad Keselowski and his Penske Racing team at Texas Motor Speedway. The story blowing like wildfire Monday through NASCAR goes like this: Keselowski was parked at Texas next to Jim-

mie Johnson, while teammate Joey Logano was further down the garage parked next to Jeff Gordon. The assigned spots gave Hendrick Motorsports crews crystal clear views of the Penske cars all weekend As the story goes, there may have been eavesdropping on team chatter over the scanner during practice runs. Did someone from Hendrick ask NASCAR to take a closer

look at the Penske cars? On race day, NASCAR inspectors were indeed sniffing around looking for an infraction. What they found in the rear-end housings on the No. 2 and No. 22 Fords were confiscated — Logano barely made the start of the race — though NASCAR vice president of competition Robin Pemberton curiously

Jerseylicious has simply been dominant for trainer Wayne Givens, and I expect more of the same in tonight’s fourth leg of the Bobby Weiss Series, for 3-year-old pacing fillies. Trained by Wayne Givens, the daughter of Western Ideal is a perfect 6-for-6 on the early season. She has yet to be even challenged this year, winning every race by open lengths. Drawing the rail this evening look for driver Corey Callahan to point her to the lead early on and never look back in that fifth race. BEST BET: JERSEYLICIOUS (5TH) VALUE PLAY: ACHILLES BLUE CHIP (13TH)

University of Pittsburgh junior Matt Wotherspoon went up against one of the best and proved that he belongs on “the best” list as well. Wotherspoon (Crestwood) and the Panthers faced No. 16-ranked Notre Dame in a key Big East Conference baseball game last Saturday in Pittsburgh. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound right-hander came away with a 4-2 victory. Pitching for the Fighting Irish was Adam Norton, who entered the game with a 7-0 record. Wotherspoon pitched eight innings, allowing both runs, giving up just four hits and striking out five. “Their guy (Norton) threw a heck of a game but we were able to get some timely hits,” Panthers coach Joe Jordano said. “And Matt just pitched an outstanding game.” Wotherspoon has made nine starts and has a 5-1 record with a 2.98 earned run average. In 66.1 innings, he’s given up 58 hits and 26 runs, 22 earned. He’s walked 17 and struck out 51. “Matt has a lot more confidence now and can repeat pitches,” pitching coach Jerry Oakes said. “His mental side of the game is getting better every week.” Oakes enjoys working with Wotherspoon. “We have a lot of fun together,” the coach said. “He’s such a great kid and fun to be around. I push him big time to be the best possible but it’s all for the right reasons and he knows that. “My goal for Matt for him is to be the best ‘pitcher’ he can be and get him to compete every inning of every game – never taking a pitch or an inning off.” Senior Sam Parente (Pittston Area) is also having a solid season for Pitt, which is 24-9 overall and 6-3 in Big East play. He’s hitting .311 (39-for-124) with six doubles, three triples, two home runs, 23 RBI and 25 runs scored. SOROKAS FITS RIGHT IN – Sophomore Bobby Sorokas (Coughlin) is doing the job hitting the baseball and pitching it as well for the Pitt-Bradford baseball team. The 5-foot-10, 160-pounder is hitting .342 (13-for-38) with a home run, three runs scored and eight RBI. He’s a lefty-hitting outfielder. On the mound, he’s 1-0 in two starts with a 2.19 earned run average. In 12.1 innings, he’s given up seven hits and five runs, three earned, with three walks and six strikeouts. The victory came in a seven inning 11-1 victory over Nichols. “Bobby came in during the fall and slowly but steadily gained our respect,” coach Bret Butler said. “He earned a starting job through the winter. He is one of the hardest outs on the team with two strikes. He just hangs in there and battles and does not get rattled.” The coach likes what he sees from Sorokas on the mound. “He’s earned a rotation job,” Butler said. “He pitched a beauty in a losing cause to league leading PSU-Behrend. He tossed a four-hitter (in 5.1 innings) but go a no decision as we lost in extra innings.” RECORD FOR HAYWARD – Freshman Dannah Hayward (Coughlin) set a St. Joseph’s record in just her second outdoor meet of the season. She finished fourth out of 45 in the 400 meter hurdles in a time of 1:01.41 at the competitive Colonial Relays in Raleigh, N.C. She was the top freshman finisher, the

time earning her a spot in the ECAC meet and the junior nationals this summer. Last weekend, she finished fourth in the 100 hurdles (15.04) and seventh in the 800 (2:21.32) at the Delaware Open. “Dannah had a marvelous indoor season and has started the outdoor season in a similar manner,” coach Kevin Quinn said. “She’s a terrific kid and quite an athlete and has taken very well to the rigors of college training as well as being very successful academically.” Two other area athletes are competing with the Hawks – junior Mercedes Yanora (Holy Redeemer) and freshman Sara Radzwilka (Wyoming Area). Zanora finished fourth in the 400 meter dash (59.51) and helped the 4x400 finish second and the 4x100 finish third at Delaware. GRILLINI PITCHING IN – Sophomore Anthony Grillini has a 2-0 record and a save for the Binghamton baseball team, which is 16-12 overall and 7-7 in America East play. The 6-foot, 175-pound right-hander, has worked in seven games and has a 4.61 earned run average. In 13.2 innings, he’s given up 16 hits and nine runs, seven earned, with six walks and 10 strikeouts. “Anthony has become one of our main go-to guys out of the bull pen,” coach Tim Sinicki said. “He is pitching important innings in very important games. He continues to work extremely hard to improve his skills.” The coach sees Grillini in even a bigger role the next couple of seasons. “Looking ahead to his junior and senior years, Anthony will get strong consideration to join our starting rotation,” Sinicki said. YURCHAK IMPRESSES – Sophomore Jackie Yurchak (Hazleton Area) is having a solid season with the Hood softball team. She’s hitting .271 (19-for-70) with a double, three home runs, seven RBI and 12 runs. Playing first base, the outfield and catcher for the Blazers, she’s made just three errors on 65 chances (.954). “I’ve been really impressed with Jackie’s play this year,” coach Terry Burdette said. “She struggled with the bat last season but I knew she had a great work ethic and I gave her some additional hitting work to do outside of practice and it’s really paid off. She is much more relaxed and confident at the plate.” The coach talked about Yurchak’s versatility. “Last season, we were short on catchers so Jackie volunteered to catch although her primary position was in the outfield,” Burdette said. “This year, her versatility has helped us at first base in addition to the outfield. Bottom line is that she is a real team player and is a big part of our success thus far.” The Blazers are 17-12 overall and 5-4 in the Commonwealth Conference. KRACUM WORKING HARD – Sophomore Nicole Kracum (Hazleton Area) is competing with the Lebanon Valley women’s tennis team. Thus far, she’s 1-0 at No. 6 singles and is 5-0 competing at No. 3 doubles. “Nicole worked diligently on improv-

ing her technique and match play over the summer,” coach Joy Graeff said. “She took private lessons (with Wilkes coach Chris Leicht) and played multiple times a week with her friends. “She also tested and found a new racket that added to her style of play.” Kracum’s doubles play has been a key to the Dutchwomen who are 8-6 overall and 2-1 in Commonwealth Conference play. “Nicole hurt her knee at the end of the fall, but proved her dedication by rehabbing it to where she is strong and playing some of her best tennis, especially in doubles. She is a pleasure to work with because she listens to advice.” PIPER DASHES TO RECORD – Sophomore Raisha Piper (Hanover Area) set a Keystone record in the 400 meter dash at the recent Muhlenberg Invitational. Her time was 1:02.90 and was good for 12th place in the race. She also ran a leg on the 4x400 relay that also set a school record (4:16.13). Coach Michael Badway feels he knows the secret to her success. “A major part of Raisha’s successful start to the outdoor season is because for the first year, she decided to give up basketball and focus on track,” he said. “She is a very versatile sprinter and has earned a spot on both the 4x100 and 4x400 relays that will compete in the Penn Relays (April 25-26 in Philadelphia).” Piper is currently ranked third in the 400 and fourth in the 200 in the Mason Dixon Conference. That championship is May 3-4 in Newport News, Va. Senior Rebecca Drumheller (Hazleton Area) is also competing with the Giants. She finished 13th in the 800 meter run (2:33.28) at the Muhlenberg meet. NOVAK ON THE MOVE -- David Novak, of Tunkhannock, had another impressive weekend on his bicycle. Novak, who rides for Lindsey Wilson College in Kentucky, won the Midwestern Collegiate Cycling Conference Region Critireum Sunday in South Bend, Ind. He finished fourth in the Road Race Regional on Saturday at Purdue University.

Athlete of the Week
School: Pittston Area Grade: Senior Sport: Track and Field Events: 110-meter hurdles, 300-meter hurdles, 100-meter dash All in the family: Ronnie, 18, lives in Duryea and is the son of Brenda and Ron D’Eliseo - a former star basketball player for Pittston Area’s powerful playoff teams in the 1980s. Stats: D’Eliseo won the 110-meter hurdles and 300-meter hurdles and was also a member of the winning 1600-meter relay team while helping the Patriots forge a 75-75 tie with Wyoming Valley West. Back in a flash: - D’Eliseo’s didn’t just hurdle past everyone in the meet last week, he leaped over everyone who ran on Valley West’s track in Plymouth. D’Eliseo set the track record with a winning time of 14.7 seconds in the 110 hurdles, then set another track record in the 300 hurdles with a time of 38.9 seconds. Coach’s corner: “He’s come tremendously far in just a few short years,” Pittston Area coach Jason Mills said. “He’s just become a leader for us. He’s already got the record here (at Pittston Area) for 110s (hurdles). He’s going to have an opportunity to compete in four different events at districts and probably be a top three (finisher) in all four.” Did you know?

in the fifth. Both times, though, saw those one-out opportunities go unfulfilled. “If we would have played them a couple more innings, we were definitely getting around (on Swanek). It would have been a different game if we could have got around to a third time,” Hanover Area coach Tami Thomas said. Instead, Hanover Area managed a lone run in the sixth thanks to an errant throw. Brittany McNair hit a oneout double for Hanover Area and moved to third on a steal. She got caught in a rundown between third and home and while diving back to third the throw ricocheted off her helmet and into left field. Redeemer scored its first run when lead-off hitter Chelsea Skrepenak tripled and scored on an off-line throw to the infield. “She’s always a spark plug and gets this team going,” Senchak said. “Speed kills.

HAZLETON — Hazleton Area score two runs in the third inning and held off a Nanticoke rally for a 2-1 victory Monday in a battle of unbeatens in Wyoming Valley Conference Division 1 softball. Consecutive doubles by Rachel Roccograndi and Kayla Benjamin allowed Nanticoke to move within 2-1. Winning pitcher Becky Demko, though, got a groundout to end the game. Demko finished with nine strikeouts. Hazleton Area scored its first run on a double steal by Maria Trivelpiece and Renee Taylor in the third. Taylor was running for Celine Podlesney, who opened the frame with a double and moved to third on Trivelpiece’s single. Later in the inning, MacKenzie Yori reached on a fielder’s choice. She then stole second and when the throw went into center field she was able to score. Demko took a no-hitter into the seventh.

BRISBANE, Australia — Greg Norman almost couldn’t stand to watch. The Great White Shark had circled around the elusive green jacket too many times without being able to wear it. Pam Scott was on the other side of the world, trying to catch every agonizing moment. Norman’s close calls lurked in the memories of so many Australians on Monday. They woke up, nervously turned on the TV or radio or went online and discovered Adam Scott was still going strong at the Masters. No Australian had worn the famous green jacket, although Norman and Scott had been among the handful of Aussies to finish runner-up. Pam Scott was home with her daughter in Queensland state, watching her 32-year-old son on TV, knowing that generations of people were willing him on, desperate for another big fish in Australian golf.

“We leaped in the air,” she said. “We were sitting on the bed all morning from four o’clock and couldn’t contain ourselves. It was just such a relief.” It was the kind of relief that cascaded across the nation. Shouts of “You little bewdy” (beauty) echoed through usually quiet suburban streets. Commuters whooped and hollered on buses on their way into work. The prime minister was interrupted during a radio interview on the national broadcaster for an update from Augusta National. “Butterflies doesn’t cut it,” Pam Scott told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. of the gutwrenching final holes. “It was hard work this morning. You never know until the last putt.” Adam Scott defied the pressure, a picture of poise as he sank a 12-foot birdie putt on the second extra hole to beat Angel Cabrera in a playoff as darkness descended, setting off jubilation

on the course and thousands of miles away in Australia. Two other Australians — Jason Day and Marc Leishman — were in the top five at the start of play: Day held the lead at one stage before finishing in third place; Leishman tied for fourth with Tiger Woods. Horns honked in morning traffic. Yells could be heard from households in tightly packed neighborhoods. People talked about knowing, in years to come, exactly where they were when Scott won. Shopkeepers at Peregian Beach, near a resort course designed by Adam’s father, Phil Scott, spoke of the pride of having a Masters champion from their neck of the woods. Phil Scott was with his son at Augusta. At the Kooralbyn International School in the Gold Coast hinterland, where Scott spent his final three high school years before graduating in 1997, former schoolmasters remembered

him as a “tall, skinny, stringbean sort of fellow.” “But you could see he was determined,” school principal Geoff Mills told Fairfax Media. “He was determined back then and he hasn’t lost that grit and determination you need — not just for sport, but for life in general.” Like Norman, Jack Newton is an Australian who knows what it’s like to be a Masters runnerup. He tied for second behind Seve Ballesteros in 1980. Unlike Norman, a wealthy businessman who was in Florida keeping track of Scott’s progress, Newton was in outback New South Wales state for a junior golf clinic. He watched the final round on a motel TV in rural Forbes. “It’s a wonder you didn’t hear my yelling in Queensland,” Newton said. “I’ve got to say when I looked at the leaderboard … I thought ‘you bloody beauty.’ The 100-pound gorilla is gone.”

Sixers lose, face future without collins
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Greg Monroe had 27 points and 16 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons made the most of their home finale by beating the Philadelphia 76ers 109-101 on Monday night. For both teams, the game was overshadowed by uncertainty off the court. Doug Collins is on his way out as Philadelphia’s coach, and Pistons owner Tom Gores remained noncommittal before the game on the status of team president Joe Dumars and coach Lawrence Frank. A person familiar with the situation has told The Associated Press that Collins and the Sixers are trying to resolve their future relationship after the coach told them he would not return for a fourth season. NEW YORK — Andray Blatche led a bevy of Brooklyn bench players with 20 points and 11 rebounds as the Nets erased an early 17 point deficit to beat Washington. Kris Humphries, who was the team’s original starting power forward at the beginning of the season before falling out of the rotation, added 20 points and nine boards for Brooklyn. Mirza Teletovic added 14 points and MarShon Brooks chipped in 12 for the Nets.

CLEVELAND — LeBron James watched from the bench in street clothes as Norris Cole stripped Kyrie Irving of the ball with 2.2 seconds left to give Miami, resting most of its top players for the playoffs, a win over Cleveland. Cole finished with 18 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists. CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Gerald Henderson scored 27 points, Kemba Walker had 23 points and a career-high 13 assists and the Charlotte Bobcats defeated a New York Knicks team playing without Carmelo Anthony and a few others 106-95 on Monday night. The Knicks played only seven players, resting Anthony and others after wrapping up the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Griner is top pick by Mercury
Prospective players for the 2013 WNBA basketball draft pose for a photograph at ESPN in Bristol, Conn., on Monday.

The Associated Press

BRISTOL, Conn. — Brittney Griner left an indelible mark on women’s college basketball. Now she’s ready to take on the pros. The Phoenix Mercury took Baylor’s star center with the top pick in the WNBA draft Monday night. Despite knowing she was going first, the two-time AP Player of the Year admitted she was extremely nervous. “It’s a dream come true, I’m like a little kid in Disney World the first time meeting all the characters,” Griner said. “Sitting at the table they said 15 seconds and my heart started beating so fast. I was grabbing

the tablecloth underneath.” The 6-foot-8 phenom finished as the second all-time scorer in women’s NCAA history, with 3,283 points. She is the top shotblocker ever, shattering both the men’s and women’s college marks with 748. She also had a record 18 dunks — including 11 this season. Like Phoenix, Chicago added a budding star in Elena Delle Donne with the No. 2 pick to an already stacked roster that just missed making the playoff last treated over the last seven days is absolutely shameful. I feel like we’ve been targeted over the last seven days more than I’ve ever seen a team targeted in my life.” While those are certainly fighting words, NASCAR spokesman Brett Jewkes posted Monday on Twitter that Keselowski would not be punished for his post-race remarks. NASCAR is still reviewing the actual alterations on the Penske cars, and penalties are practically guaranteed. NASCAR traditionally hands out sanctions on Tuesdays, and on this particular week, that’s the exact day that Keselowski and his No. 2 team just happen to be scheduled to celebrate their Sprint Cup title with NASCAR officials at the White House. When the dust settles, crew chiefs Paul Wolfe and Todd Gordon will likely be sidelined for

season. The 6-foot-5 forward, who can play multiple positions was second in the nation in scoring (26.0) and averaged 8.5 rebounds. She finished her career at Delaware with 3,039 career points — fifth all-time in NCAA history. Tulsa took Notre Dame guard Skylar Diggins with the third pick. Diggins averaged 17.1 points, 6.1 assists and 3.1 steals while helping the Irish reach the Final Four the past three seasons. several weeks while Keselowski and Logano are stripped of critical points in the standings. Remember, it will be for something that hasn’t been deemed illegal, at least not yet. It’s more likely this is a case of something in development that the Penske crew was trying and NASCAR decided was too close to the edge. And there’s the rub in all of this. NASCAR gets to decide when a team has crept too close to a non-existent line in the rule book. Johnson’s crew chief, Chad Knaus, has won five championships with one toe on that mark, and the general public is only aware of the times he’s gotten his hand slapped. Nobody has any idea how many developments or experiments or trickery by Knaus and the Hendrick group have gotten through without a mention.

MONTREAL — Scott Hartnell scored three goals and the Philadelphia Flyers snapped a four-game losing streak with a 7-3 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Monday night. Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek each had a goal and two assists, and Wayne Simmonds and Erik Gustafsson also scored for the Flyers (18-21-3), who matched their season high for goals as they try to make a late push for a playoff spot. Philadelphia is in 12th place in the Eastern Conference, four places and seven points behind the New York Rangers and the postseason cutoff. The Flyers have six games remaining, starting with a home matchup with the Rangers on Tuesday. Max Pacioretty, Brendan Gallagher and Alex Galchenyuk scored for the Canadiens (2610-5), who were coming off a 5-1 loss in Toronto. They have had two lopsided losses since

clinching a playoff spot on Thursday.

cutoff with only six games left.

TORONTO — James Reimer made 31 saves, and Phil Kessel snapped a scoreless tie late in the third period to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs to a victory over the New Jersey Devils. Kessel broke the deadlock at 13:28 of the third, and Jay McClement scored into an empty net with 36.6 seconds remaining to back the stellar goaltending of Reimer, who earned his third shutout of the season. Toronto (24-14-5), aiming for its first postseason berth since 2004, is 9-1-4 in its past 14 games. The Devils (15-17-10) lost for the 10th straight time (0-6-4) and were blanked for a second consecutive game, following their 2-0 home defeat to Ottawa on Friday. New Jersey, the defending Eastern Conference champion, is in 11th place — six points below the postseason

Canucks 5, Predators 2

CHICAGO — Chicago’s Andrew Shaw, Niklas Hjalmarsson and Marian Hossa scored in the third period after Dallas rallied to tie it, and the Blackhawks went on to beat the Stars for their sixth straight win. Jonathan Toews netted his team-leading 21st goal, and Viktor Stalberg also scored for NHL-leading Chicago, which has points in nine consecutive games. Ray Emery made 16 saves and improved to 16-1. NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Ryan Kesler scored two goals and Roberto Luongo made 36 saves to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a win. Derek Roy, Jason Garrison, and Alex Burrows also scored for Vancouver, which has won five of its past six. Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, and Jannik Hansen each had a pair of assists.

avoided a very important word in explaining the problem with the Penske cars. Pemberton never said the cars were illegal. The furthest Pemberton went Saturday in describing the problem in the rear-end housings was they were “not in the spirit of the rule.” That might very well be the issue behind Keselowski’s postrace rant, when he hinted that NASCAR was not treating the Penske teams fairly. “There’s so much stuff going on, you guys (reporters) have no idea — you have no (expletive) idea what’s going on,” he said. “I can tell you there is no team in this garage with the integrity of the 2 team.

streets near the finish line of Monday’s Boston Marathon on Monday, killing two people and injuring more than 100 in a terrifying scene of shattered glass, bloodstained pavement and severed limbs, authorities said. A White House official speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation was still unfolding said the attack was being treated as an act of terrorism. President Barack Obama vowed that those responsible will “feel the full weight of justice.” Rita Jeptoo averted the Keynan shutout by winning the women’s race for the second time. Jeptoo, who also won in 2006, finished in 2:26:25 for her first victory in a major race since taking two years off after having a baby. After a series of close finishes in the women’s race — five consecutive years with 3 seconds or less separating the top two — Jeptoo had a relatively comfortable 33-second margin over Meseret Hailu of Ethiopia. Defending champion Sharon Cherop of Kenya was another 3 seconds back. Shalane Flanagan, of nearby Marblehead, was fourth in the women’s division in her attempt to earn the first American victory in Boston since 1985. (Two-time winner Joan Benoit Samuelson, running on the 30th anniversary of her 1983 victory, finished in 2:50:29 to set a world record for her age group.) “The hardest part about Boston is the Bostonians want it just as bad as we do, which really tugs at our heart,” said Flanagan, a three-time Olympian. “We all want it too. We want to be the next Joanie.” Kara Goucher, of Portland, Ore., was sixth for her third top

Lelisa Desisa of Ethiopia crosses the finish line to win the Boston Marathon on Monday.

10 finish in Boston in as many tries. The last American woman to win here was Lisa LarsenWeidenbach in ‘85; Greg Meyer was the last U.S. man to win, in 1983. “There’s just more pure numbers of African runners,” said Goucher, who noted that the field of five American women with personal bests under 2:30 was the strongest in years. “That’s a good team of American women,” she said. “One day the opportunity is going to be there.” This year it was the men’s race with the sprint to the finish. Desisa, 23, was among a group of nine men — all from Kenya or Ethiopia — who broke away from the pack in the first half of the race. There were three remaining when they came out of Kenmore Square with a mile to go. But Desisa quickly pulled away and widened his distance in the sprint to the tape. It’s Desisa’s second victory in as many marathons, having won in Dubai in January in 2:04:45. He is the fourth Ethiopian to win the men’s race and the first since his training partner, Deriba Merga, won in 2009. Desisa is the 24th East African to win

in the past 26 years and Jeptoo is the 15th East African winner in the last 17 years on the women’s side. A year after heat approaching 90 degrees sent record numbers of participants in search of medical help, temperatures in the high 40s greeted the field of 24,662 at the start in Hopkinton. It climbed to 54 degrees by the time the winners reached Copley Square in Boston. Japan’s Hiroyuki Yamamoto was the first winner of the day, cruising to victory in the men’s wheelchair race by 39 seconds over nine-time champion Ernst Van Dyk of South Africa. Tatyana McFadden, a Russian orphan who attends the University of Illinois, won the women’s race. The 53 wheelchair competitors left Hopkinton at 9:17 a.m., followed 15 minutes later by the 51 elite women. The men were under way at 10 a.m., followed by three waves that over the next 40 minutes sent the entire field on its way to Copley Square. Last year’s race came under the hottest sustained temperatures on record. About 2,300 runners took organizers up on the offer to sit that one out and run this year instead.

Cardinals 10, Pirates 6

CINCINNATI — Brandon Phillips drove in a pair of runs with a bases-loaded single in the eighth inning and the Cincinnati Reds ended their fivegame losing streak by beating the Philadelphia Phillies 4-2 on Monday night. Cincinnati’s five-game slide matched its longest slump from last season, when it won the NL Central. The Reds still didn’t hit much, but left-hander Cliff Lee helped them by letting in a run on a wild pitch in the seventh. Todd Frazier followed with a sacrifice fly for a 2-0 lead. Bronson Arroyo (2-1) gave up pinch-hitter Chase Utley’s tworun homer in the eighth, but Cincinnati rallied against the Philadelphia bullpen. The Reds loaded the bases against Jeremy Horst (0-1), and Phillips singled off Mike Adams to break the tie. Aroldis Chapman got his third save.

Starling Marte had three hits and Neil Walker homered for the Pirates, who had their threegame winning streak snapped.

MIAMI — Jordan Zimmermann pitched a six-hitter for his third victory of the season, and Washington bounced back from a humbling weekend to beat Miami. Ryan Zimmerman hit his first home run and had four RBIs to lead a 16-hit outburst. Zimmermann (3-0) struck out six, walked one and threw 102 pitches in his second career complete game. The Nationals were outscored 18-5 while being swept in a three-game series at home against Atlanta. They took out any lingering frustration on the Marlins (2-11), who came into the game tied for the worst record in the majors.

Blue Jays 4, White Sox 3

PITTSBURGH — Jon Jay and Matt Holliday each had two hits and two RBI as St. Louis jumped on Pittsburgh early. Allen Craig doubled and drove in three runs for the Cardinals, who knocked around James McDonald (1-2) with a seven-run second inning. McDonald gave up eight runs, three earned, and walked two in 1 1-3 innings, the shortest start of his career. Lance Lynn (2-0) labored through five innings to get the win. Lynn allowed four runs, walking three and striking out four.

Mark Buehrle pitched in and out of trouble into the seventh inning to beat his former team, J.P. Arencibia and Maicer Izturis hit solo homers and Toronto topped Chicago. Arencibia went deep in the first and Izturis connected to begin the second as the Blue Jays opened a seven-game homestand with their third victory in four games. Buehrle (1-0) went 6 1-3 innings in his first career start against the White Sox, allowing two runs and nine hits. The lefthander walked two and struck out three. A four-time All-Star during his 12 seasons with the White Sox

Red Sox 3, Rays 2

from 2000-11, Buehrle starred for Chicago’s 2005 World Series championship team, pitched a no-hitter in 2007 and perfect game in 2009.

BOSTON — Mike Napoli drove in the winning run with a double in the ninth inning and Boston completed a three-game sweep of light-hitting Tampa Bay. The Rays had two hits before finally showing some offensive punch in the ninth when Desmond Jennings led off with a single, stole second and scored the tying run on a single by Ben Zobrist off Andrew Bailey (1-0). Joel Peralta (0-1) retired Boston’s first batter in the bottom of the ninth before walking Dustin Pedroia. Napoli then hit a liner off the left-field wall and Pedroia easily beat the throw home.

Violent backdrop to Jackie Robinson Day
MIAMI — Lined up in front of their dugouts, all wearing No. 42 on Jackie Robinson Day, the Washington Nationals and Miami Marlins stood for a moment of silence to honor bombing victims at the Boston Marathon. What began as an annual celebration to salute the man who broke baseball’s color barrier 66 years ago turned somber after a pair of explosions near the finish line in Boston — about a mile from Fenway Park — killed three people and injured more than 130 on Monday. Hours later, Major League Baseball went on with ceremonies for the fifth Jackie Robinson Day at stadiums all over the country and north of the border in Toronto. “Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by this horrible occurrence and we are monitoring the situation,” MLB spokesman Pat Courtney said in a statement.



(Valid PA Driver's

There were moments of silence before each of the seven night games. At Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, President Barack Obama’s remarks to the nation were shown on the video board while the Phillies were taking batting practice. “I think everyone was thinking about it,” said Philadelphia outfielder Ben Revere, who taped the message “PRAY for Boston” on his glove. “It hurts to see something like that happen.”

IN BRIEF Dish offering to buy Sprint

Dish Network Corp. is trying to snag U.S. wireless carrier Sprint Nextel away from its Japanese suitor in recognition of the way satellite dishes are losing their relevance in the age of cellphones that play YouTube videos. Dish offered $25.5 billion in cash and stock on Monday for Sprint, which Dish says beats the offer from Japan’s Softbank Corp. Softbank is offering $20 billion in cash, and shareholders get to keep 30 percent of Sprint. Dish is offering $17.3 billion in cash, and Sprint shareholders get 32 percent of the combined Dish-Sprint. Sprint Nextel Corp.’s stock jumped on the news, as investors started looking forward to a bidding war between Dish and Softbank. Sprint had accepted the Softbank offer and was expecting to close on it this summer. Sprint, the country’s third-largest cellphone carrier, said it would evaluate Dish’s offer.

Builders’ outlook mixed

U.S. homebuilders are concerned that limited land and rising costs for building materials and labor will slow sales in the short term. Still, their outlook for sales over the next six months climbed to the highest level in more than six years — suggesting the obstacles could be temporary. The National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo builder sentiment index released Monday fell this month to 42 from 44 in March. It was the third decline since January. Measures of customer traffic and current sales conditions both declined from March’s reading. Readings below 50 suggest negative sentiment about the housing market. The last time the index was at 50 or higher was in April 2006.

DOW takes year’s biggest plunge
Drop in commodity prices, China worries rattle the markets.
By MATTHEW CRAFT AP Business Writer

Securities trader pleads guilty

A securities trader has pleaded guilty for his role in a scheme involving the unauthorized purchase of about $1 billion of Apple stock that wound up costing his employer $5 million. Federal prosecutors say 40-year-old David Miller of Rockville Centre, N.Y., pleaded guilty Monday in Hartford to conspiracy and fraud offenses. Authorities say Miller, while employed as an institutional sales trader for Rochdale Securities LLC of Stamford, executed a trade to buy 1.6 million shares of Apple stock on the day the company was scheduled to announce earnings. Prosecutors say the scheme was designed so Miller would profit if the stock price rose, but it fell. GAS PRICES

NEW YORK — A steep fall in commodity prices led the stock market to its worst day this year on Monday, as worries about the global economy resurfaced. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 265 points, its biggest loss in five months. The first trigger came from China. News that the world’s second-largest economy slowed unexpectedly pummeled oil, copper and other commodities. In the stock market, companies that produce oil and mine for metals fared the worst. A slowdown in China, a huge importer of basic

materials like copper, would stymie profits at those companies. “The weak data out of China is spooking a lot of investors,” said Dan Greenhaus, chief global strategist at the brokerage BTIG. Oil prices hit their lowest level since mid-December, and gold plunged below $1,400 an ounce for the first time in two years as a selloff in metals continued from last week. Concerns that Cyprus and other troubled European countries may sell gold to raise cash have also weighed on prices for precious metals, Greenhaus said. The Dow lost 265.86 points to close at 14,599.20, a drop of 1.8 percent. Caterpillar, a maker of heavy equipment used by miners, led the Dow lower, falling 3 percent to $82.27. The Standard & Poor’s

500 index slumped 36.48 points to 1,552.37, a loss of 2.3 percent. It was the biggest drop for the stock market since Nov. 7 — Election Day — last year. China’s economy expanded 7.7 percent in the first three months of the year, well below forecasts of 8 percent or better. That news pummeled copper, oil and other commodities. Crude oil slid $2.58 to finish at $88.71 in New York trading The plunge in commodity prices hit mining and energy stocks. Cliffs Natural Resources lost 8 percent to $17.61. Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold fell 8 percent to $29.27, the worst drop in the S&P 500. Analysts at Citigroup placed a “sell” rating on the mining giant on the expectation that copper prices will continue sliding.

J.C. Penney job No. 1: Calming vendors





Source: AAA report for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre/Hazleton area

NEW YORK — As J.C. Penney Co. burns through its cash after a disastrous turnaround plan and taps almost half of its credit line, the flailing department store chain doesn’t only have to calm its investors. It has to restore confidence among its several hundred suppliers whose constant flow of merchandise must continue if the retailer is to survive. Penney announced Monday that it would draw $850 million from its $1.85 billion revolving credit line to pay for replenishing inventory partic-

ularly for its overhauled home area. Some analysts say the move shows that the Plano, Texas-based company is burning through cash faster than expected. Penney is also looking for alternative sources of funding. It comes at a critical time. Penney is wrapping up back-to-school orders and is starting to order goods for the critical holiday shopping season. Normally, retailers order goods well in advance but don’t pay for them until about 30 to 60 days until after goods are shipped. If vendors start demanding to be paid in advance, stores face a cash crunch when they order goods for busy

shopping periods. “Maintaining a seamless flow of merchandise is critical,” said Marshal Cohen, chief retail industry analyst with market research firm The NPD Group. If shoppers see empty shelves, they’ll go somewhere else, he says. The concerns about the future of Penney are mounting a week after Penney fired its CEO Ron Johnson 17 months on the job and rehired his predecessor Mike Ullman. Johnson spearheaded a costly turnaround plan that included getting rid of most discounts, bringing in hip brands and transforming the stores into collections of mini-boutiques.

WILKES-BARRE — A local company that sells vacation packages is threatening to sue Facebook for refusing to remove a page that’s critical of the company’s business practices. Attorneys for Sundance Vacations in Wilkes-Barre Township recently notified Facebook they intend to add it as a co-defendant in a lawsuit filed in Luzerne County against Albert Whitehead, a Philadelphia man who created the “Boycott Sundance Vacations” page on the popular social networking site several years ago. Whitehead contends Sundance’s actions are being taken in an attempt to silence him and others who have complained about the firm’s sales practices. Sundance’s attorney, Donna Walsh of Myers, Brier and Kelly, maintains Whitehead has damaged the company’s reputation by making false and defamatory statements, despite a settlement agreement in a separate lawsuit that precluded him from doing so. Sundance is now threatening to add Facebook to the case because it has refused demands to remove the page, despite being provided evidence that Whitehead has been ordered by the courts to take it down. According to documents filed in Luzerne County Court, Whitehead, who had been denied a sales position with Sundance, filed suit against the company in Philadelphia, alleging discrimination. Sundance filed a counter complaint against him, alleging he was defaming the firm through postings he made on the Facebook page. Whitehead and Sundance reached a settlement of the Philadelphia lawsuit in February 2007 in which Whitehead agreed to refrain from posting any further disparaging comments about the company on Facebook or other Internet sites. Sundance alleges he failed to abide by the terms of that agreement, prompting the company to file suit in Luzerne County in April 2012. A county judge sided with Facebook in November 2012 and ordered Whitehead to refrain from making any future derogatory posts. Despite those directives, Sundance says Whitehead has continued to defy the order. Sundance now is seeking additional sanctions against Whitehead. In a March 7 letter to Ryan Spear, an attorney who represents Facebook, Walsh notes she has asked the company multiple times to remove the site, but it has refused to do so, despite the court orders issued in Luzerne County. The letter threatens to file suit against Facebook if it continues to refuse to remove the page. Contacted Monday, Spear, of Seattle, Wash., said he could not comment on the case. Walsh could not be reached for comment Monday.

You may be surprised to discover how many calories you burn during spring cleaning
As much of the country begins to thaw out from a long and cold winter, the warmer temperatures are sure to get many Americans up and moving. Whether you find yourself doing yard work, taking an extra walk around the block, or cooking and cleaning indoors, give yourself the credit you deserve for these activities: Yard work is hard work. Now that the snow has melted and/or the rain has ceased, it’s time to get that yard under control. One half hour of mowing the yard burns 187 calories. That, on top of 30 minutes of gardening, can help you burn a whopping 320 calories in just an hour. Not warm enough yet for yard work? No problem. Thirty minutes of light cleaning plus 30 minutes of cooking burns about 125 calories combined. If you’re planning a deeper clean — baseboards, windows, scrubbing down the kitchen and bathroom — you can up that burn to 200 calories an hour! Pack away those winter clothes. Not only will you free up closet space, but you may just slim your waistline in time to get back into last season’s shorts. Boxing up and moving all those heavy sweaters and coats will help you burn about 85 calories in just half an hour. If you’re carrying those boxes upstairs, in 30 minutes you


H ealth

will have burned 305 calories! Rearranging furniture isn’t easy. Now that you’ve freed up enough space, it’s time to spruce up your furniture arrangement. That can include some heavy lifting, so it’s no wonder this activity burns about 204 calories every 30 minutes. If you’re ready to enjoy some fresh air, so are the kids. We’ve heard it time and time again: it’s the little things that count. Take a walk around the block pushing your child in a stroller for 30

minutes and you’ll burn 85 calories. If you ditch the stroller, you can burn 125 calories by walking while carrying the child during that same 30-minute interval. Spring chores and activities burn almost as many calories as an actual workout. Apps like MyFitnessPal available on all platforms including the Web, offer an enormous fitness database, allowing users to track just about any food they eat or activity they perform. - MCT Information Services

Free overactive bladder program offered

MINNEAPOLIS — The waiting room at Cedar Riverside Clinic was packed with patients and translators one recent morning and buzzing with multiple languages. To Julie Tate, waiting to see her doctor, it was a familiar sight. “I used to go to the emergency room” for medical care, Tate said. But now, after 14 years as a patient at the Minneapolis clinic, she knows her doctor personally — and much of the staff as well. “The people at the front desk know you,” said Tate, now a member of the clinic’s board of directors. “You know you can get care if you need it.” That’s exactly the sort of bond that state health officials hope to build on as they embark on an experiment between community clinics like Tate’s and the state of Minnesota to reform medical care for thousands of underprivileged patients. An alliance of 10 community clinics has contracted with the state in an unusual experiment that aims to improve health care and reduce costs for nearly 22,000 people on Medical Assistance, the state’s Medicaid program. The 10 clinics have banded together to form an “accountable care organization,” or ACO, a medical care delivery system that rewards doctors

and hospitals for controlling costs and boosting quality. ACOs were adopted by the 2010 Affordable Care Act as a model in which hospitals and clinics link together to give patients coordinated medical care and share whatever money they manage to save. Now, more than 40 percent of Americans live in areas served by at least one ACO, according to a recent analysis by the consulting firm Oliver Wyman. “Successful ACOs won’t just siphon patients away from traditional providers,” the report said. “They will change the rules of the game.” The Minnesota clinics, members of the Federally Qualified Health Center Urban Health Network, or FUHN, represent one of the first times that

safety-net clinics have tried to form an ACO. Under a three-year contract with Minnesota, the clinics will keep half the money they save Medical Assistance, with half returned to the state. While ACOs have spread steadily among conventional clinic and hospital groups, the Minnesota experiment is one of the first to apply the model to an unusually disadvantaged patient population. A large share of patients at community clinics are poor, many are immigrants or non-English speakers, and some are homeless. They have higher rates of chronic illnesses such as asthma and diabetes than the general population, and often wind up seeking treatment at overextended, high-cost hospital emergency rooms because they lack regular preventive care. Under the Minnesota experiment, “those at a higher risk now have a care team who works with each patient, to keep them out of the emergency room,” said Peggy Metzer, CEO of People’s Center Health Services. “These clinics have very close relationships with their patients,” said Jonathan Lips, an attorney at Halleland Habicht who advised the clinics during negotiations with the state.

ORLANDO, Fla. — Even though children’s nutrition has received lots of attention the past few years, you’re still more likely to find chicken fingers and fries on kids’ menus than wraps and salads. Ninety-seven percent of major restaurant-chain children’s meals were deemed unhealthful in a recent report by the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a consumer-advocacy group. “I think what most restaurants have done is just add one or two meals that meet nutrition standards and left the rest of the menu very unhealthy,” said Margo Wootan, nutrition policy director for the Washington-based organization. “I think what “They’re still serving up the most restausame old junk rants have they always done is just have.” With Amer- add one or two icans spending nearly meals that half of their meet nutrition food budgets standards and on eating out, re s t a u ra n t s left the rest of have been unthe menu very der increasing pressure from unhealthy. government They’re still and health advocates to serving up the make meals same old junk more healthful, especially they always for young- have.” sters. Restaurants say they Margo Wootan Nutrition policy are making director steady progress. But kids are growing out of these meals earlier, and many parents aren’t exactly clamoring for fewer calories, less salt and more vegetables. And that’s why many restaurants are making token changes rather than substantial ones, some experts say. “There’s always been this mentality that people don’t go out to eat healthy,” said Julie Casey, an Orlando consultant who helps restaurants make themselves more childfriendly. Anna Hancy of Orlando agreed with that last week as her 3-year-old daughter, Henley, ate chicken nuggets and fries at Chick-fil-A. “It’s kind of a splurge,” Hancy said. “It’s not the most nutritious meal she’ll eat this week. She’s also 3 and very picky, and it’s something she will eat.” Chick-fil-A offers a variety of sides for children, including applesauce

Where does coffee stand in your health?

We are often asked whether coffee is good or bad for the health. The answer is both good and bad. Many studies have been done that show no overall adverse outcome on health associated with caffeine from coffee. However, there are certain aspects of coffee drinking that may be deleterious to health. THE GOOD •The Nurses’ Health Study and Health Professions Follow-up study done on 130,000 people tracked caffeine consumption for approximately 20 years and found that coffee does not increase mortality.

There was no relationship found between coffee consumption and increased risk of death from any cause including cancer or heart disease. • Studies around the world con-

sistently show high consumption of caffeinated or decaffeinated coffee is associated with low risk of type 2 diabetes, so scientists hypothesize there may be a long-term benefit from caffeine on diabetes. • Other preliminary research has shown that coffee may protect against Parkinson’s disease, liver cancer and liver cirrhosis, as well as a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. • A study led by Harvard School of Public Health researchers published in the Sept. 26, 2011, issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine, found that, among women, drinking coffee may reduce the risk of depression. The study found the risk of depression

and fresh fruit. Last year, it introduced grilled chicken nuggets. But last week during lunchtime in an Orlando Chick-fil-A, children were eating fried nuggets, not grilled ones, which last year made up just one-half of a percent of the chain’s overall sales. The healthier nuggets were never meant to generate blockbuster sales, spokesman Mark Baldwin said in an email, but “we felt it was our responsibility to offer a grilled version of our nuggets as a healthier alternative for our nutrition-minded customers.” “(Restaurants) make more money selling junk food,” said Marion Nestle, a New York University nutrition and publichealth professor and author of “What to Eat,” in an email. “Until that problem is addressed, I don’t see things changing.” Wootan suggested chains should put more energy into making healthier fare “something more interesting than a plain grilled piece of chicken.” Her group’s study looked at every combination of entrees, sides and drinks for America’s biggest chains.

met the standards established by a panel of nutritionists for the study. Another was based on how many met less-stringent standards in a restaurant-industry program called Kids LiveWell. CSPI’s criteria included having no more than 430 calories, 35 percent of them from fat, and 770 mg of salt. It also docked meal combinations with sugar-sweetened drinks. Kids LiveWell standards are similar but allow 600 calories. Three percent of restaurants’ meals met CSPI’s standards. Fewer than one out of 10 met the KidsLive Well Standards. McDonald’s has cut the size of its french fries and now includes apples in all Happy Meals. Still, the report called out the fast-food giant, saying it was one of several chains having no meals that met even the restaurant industry’s nutritional criteria. Orlando-based Darden Restaurants’ Olive Garden was in the middle of the pack, though the report noted it offers more-

healthful whole-grain pasta. One percent of its meals met CSPI’s standards, and 11 percent met those of Kids LiveWell. Darden’s Red Lobster was one of the highest-ranking, with only Subway and IHOP having a greater percentage of meals that got a CSPI thumbs-up. All of Subway’s meals met the CSPI standards. At IHOP it was 31 percent and at Red Lobster, 28 percent. “Americans are increasingly conscious of making healthy

choices … and Darden wants to ensure that those who dine with us find the choices they desire,” Darden said in a statement. Nutritionists who work closely with the restaurant industry acknowledge changes may seem slow. But it takes time to test products, find sources of healthy foods at an affordable cost and even consider things such as the choking hazards of grapes, said Orlando dietitian Jo Lichten, who has worked with chains in-

steering her young sons toward healthful choices when they go out to eat but says it’s not easy. “They’re mostly the same: burgers, hot dogs,” she said. “I think it’s tough on the restaurants to please as many kids as possible.”

“They have an excellent ability to engage their patients, and this will put to the test the effectiveness of data-driven primary care.” Cedar Riverside Clinic had 35,000 patient visits last year. More than 58 percent of its patients were non-English speakers, 94 percent live in households below the federal poverty line, and about 68 percent were Medicaid eligible, Metzer said. Like the coalition’s other health centers, Metzer’s clinic is federally mandated to give people care when needed and must be accessible to everyone. “It’s really a holistic approach to care,” said Dr. Jaeson Fournier, chairman of FUHN and CEO of West Side Community Health Services in St. Paul. Fournier said the project will also give the 10 clinics access to greater shared medical information to better understand how patients are being treated, the resources they use and the challenges they face. To help chart those patterns, the clinics have partnered with Optum, an Eden Prairiebased health care services and technology company, which is

to benefit patients going to the safety-net clinics,” said Julie Sonier, senior research fellow at the University of Minnesota. The project should “reduce the

Graphic novel teaches teens about HIV/AIDS
By Joey Holleman The State (Columbia, S.C.)

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Looking for a new and more effective method for delivering important messages about HIV/AIDS to teens, University of South Carolina researchers turned to the graphic novel format. Aiming for a storyline that would grab those readers, they turned to students at the Department of Juvenile Justice for ideas. The result is “AIDS in the End Zone,” a graphic novel that relays a story of high school sports, teen jealousy and unprotected sex to teach about HIV/ AIDS. Kendra Albright and Karen Gavigan, research professors in USC’s school of library and information science, plan to give the graphic novel format a test drive this spring. They’ll talk with teens during special events at local library branches asking them questions about HIV/ AIDS before and after they read the graphic novel. “AIDS in the End Zone” certainly is a non-traditional way to get across a health safety message. Graphic novels use a comic book-like format to tell a story. At 34 pages, this one takes five to 10 minutes to read. Albright is a believer in tai-

loring the message to the audience. During her HIV/AIDS research work in Africa, the most effective way to reach Ugandans was via radio and drama. That makes sense in a country with a strong tradition of oral history, she said. Some efforts to disperse HIV/AIDS information to African-American adults in South Carolina have focused on barbershops and hair salons, where many topics traditionally have been discussed. Albright and Gavigan thought graphic novels seemed appropriate for broaching HIV/AIDS talk with teens. They recruited illustrator Sarah Petrulis to ink the novel. Tailoring the message to the teen age group, however, seemed beyond the professors. “What can two white, middleaged women say to AfricanAmerican teens that they will listen to?” Albright said. For ideas, they went to the Department of Juvenile Justice’s school in Columbia, where about 900 students in grades 4-12 attend classes while incarcerated or detained. Over eight weeks of discussion, the students came up with characters, a plot and a moral message to go with the health lesson. A new student moves to a fictional South Carolina town and takes over as the quarterback for the high school football team. The spoiled rich kid he replaces as quarterback plots to punish him. The former quarterback

decides to set up the new guy with a young woman who only a few kids at the school know is HIV positive. The students worked on character development, coming up with family backgrounds for each of the main characters. They offered suggestions to Petrulis on high school clothes and settings. The messages dropped in along the way involve alcohol consumption, sexual abstinence, condom use, HIV testing and living with HIV/AIDS. Those messages can be found in plenty of other places — textbooks, brochures, pamphlets. “But the existing items on HIV/AIDS are boring, and that makes a difference on what information they retain,” Gavigan said.

Tired of being last picked for the softball team? Get college coaches’ tips
By LESLIE BARkER The Dallas Morning News

Tips from coach Amber Conner: On making mistakes: Don’t hang your head; don’t point the finger at someone else, she says. “Nobody wants to play next to Debbie Downer.” On listening: Be coachable. You have to be able to take criticism. “No coach is out there to hurt your feelings or make you feel silly.”

There are, in all probability, more hangdog experiences than letting your softball team down. At this time of year, though, as the days get longer and the sounds and smells of this spring and summertime sport permeate the air, we’re hard-pressed to think of others. To make sure you’re the player hefted onto teammates’ shoulders as the game ends (or at least not the one glared at during recaps of games lost), we sought tips from softball experts. Amber Conner is head coach of the University of Dallas women’s softball team. T.J. Hubbard holds the same position at the University of North Texas. For starters, Conner says, don’t sell yourself short. Anyone can play the game. “Softball does not discriminate,” she says. “You see all shapes and sizes who have great success at our sport at all levels.” If you want to play well, Hubbard says, start by being enthusiastic. “The big thing to me is walking off and on the field instead of hustling or sprinting,” says Hubbard, who’s coached the Mean Green women’s softball team for 10 years. “That’s a personal pet peeve.” Echoes Conner: “Hustle! That’s something you can always do, no matter your skill level. I will take a kid hustling and giving me everything they have physically and mentally over an extremely talented kid who gives me 75 percent every time.” Once you’ve mastered enthusiasm, here are some tips from Conner and Hubbard about the physical aspects of the game. HITTING Swing to hit the good pitches. That might sound obvious, but it’s very tempting to get revved at the plate and think any pitch is a good one. “Some people, if the ball’s between them and the dugout, they’re swinging at it,” Hubbard says. “If they can touch it, they want to hit it, which isn’t necessarily the best plan to take.” Know the basics. What’s the strike zone? Where is the plate in relation to where you are? “If you can have a picture in your mind of what those look like, it will be a lot easier to swing.” Focus on form. “Keep your feet shoulder width apart, your weight evenly distributed,” he

Hubbard says. Additionally, “I’d think if you show up with flat-soled tennis shoes and it was down to you and someone with cleats, I’d pick the person with cleats.” Take care of your glove. “If I was the guy picking the team, I’d look at gloves,” he says. “If you have one that looks like it’s

from 1937 with broken laces … if I don’t think you can catch with that glove, I wouldn’t pick you. It doesn’t have to be new, but it had better be in good shape.” Be prepared. “If you show up and don’t have a glove or bat or cleats, it would be pretty tough to pick you,” he says.

says. “Have the bat on the back side of your body, your front shoulder and hip sideways to the direction of the pitch.” Hit from the core. “Explode the bat through the strike zone,” says Conner, who played softball for Texas State University. “For me, the hands are only for holding the bat. The core is where the hit comes from.” CATCHING A FLY BALL Make sure you can see it. It might sound like a well-duh suggestion, but if you’re playing during the day, be sure to wear sunglasses and-or a cap. (Also, sunscreen, which won’t help you catch a ball, but it could save your life.) Don’t run with your glove up. “A lot of would-be players have it over their heads,” Hubbard says. Instead, just hold it while you run like somebody handed it to you before you started a jog. Get behind the ball. “Everyone struggles to catch balls in the air — running around to the right, to the left and forward, and the ball falls behind them,” Hubbard says. Don’t run directly underneath it, he says. “It doesn’t reach a peak and then come straight down. It will always have an angle on the downward slide.” If you are directly underneath it, it will always fall behind you. THROWING Warm up. Conner has her teams start on their knees. “We work from the ground up on how to throw, every single day,”

she says. “We start with wrist flips, then progress all the way to throwing hard.” Grip the ball with three fingers. Not five, not two, not one. Three: index, middle, ring, Hubbard says. “Put your top two fingers perpendicular to the horseshoe-shaped seams. You don’t want them to run along the seams, but across. If your fingers are on the seams, that will make the ball spin like a flying saucer.” Think of the ball as a clock face. “If your fingers are on the 3 and 9, you can’t control it. You want it on 12 and 6, and it’ll stay on its path.” Position yourself. “The elbow should be above or even with the shoulder for a good overhand throw,” Conner says. “Point the elbow, not the glove, toward the target.” Take the step. Make sure you do so with the opposite foot from the one holding the ball. “I’ve seen people try to step with the right and throw with the right,” Hubbard says. Let ‘er rip, like a kid would. “Get your elbow back, arm swing going forward,” he says. “Aim for the target and go. You want to get into a straight line. That’s how the body works efficiently.” “I don’t teach my daughters (he has three) a lot of mechanical stuff. Your body will naturally teach what you need to do to perform correctly.” “Follow through,” Conner

says. “There’s nothing worse than throwing and standing straight up. You have to have follow through, some bend-atthe-waist action.” SLIDING Keep running at full speed. “The biggest mistake is trying to slow down before you slide,” Hubbard says. “That’s when your feet get tangled or stuck in the ground if you’re wearing spikes or cleats.” He compares it to playing on a Slip ‘n Slide: “You don’t get to it and stop. You keep running.” Lean back a little, “almost like you’re going to fall on your back,” he says. Kick your feet into the air as you near the ground. “Let your bottom take the brunt of it as you slide forward.” Practice on the ground. “We have the team members sit on the ground, straightening out their left leg. Take the right leg and fold it under, like you’re making a 4 with your legs. That’s the position you should be in when you hit the ground.” EQUIPMENT Leave your gym shoes at home. First, they won’t give you enough traction on dirt and grass. Turf shoes or cleats will,

to be 20 percent lower among women who drank four or more cups of caffeinated coffee than those who drank little or none. Those who drank decaf, tea, soft drinks, chocolate and other beverages containing less caffeine did not appear to be protected against depression. • Caffeine has been shown to increase alertness and test performance. THE BAD • Coffee contains cafestol, which increases LDL cholesterol levels. Usually, this is resolved by using a paper filter. However, if you drink your coffee boiled and unfiltered, via French press, or Turkish style, you will ingest large levels of cafestol. Unfiltered coffee has been shown in some studies to increase LDL by 8 percent. • There may be a short-term

negative effect on diabetes with coffee. In studies that give people caffeine or caffeinated coffee, followed by something rich in glucose, it was found that the subjects’ sensitivity to insulin dropped and their blood-glucose levels were higher than expected. • Coffee prepared black, or with a small amount of milk and sugar may be healthy. However, most coffee drinks contain large amounts of processed sugar, syrups, cream and whipped cream — which can increase blood sugars and cholesterol levels. Further, many coffee drinks have upward of 500 calories — 25 percent of the total calories that are needed for a 2,000-calorieper-day diet. Thus, the calories alone in these drinks can lead to weight gain. • Coffee drinking as a lifestyle behavior appears to be linked to other negative lifestyle behaviors, such as exercising less, a less-healthy diet and increased smoking. Thus, whereas coffee may be neutral on the health, other associated behaviors may cause adverse health outcomes.

Friend’s unwanted celebrations make woman’s birthdays unhappy
Dear Abby: I was raised that a person’s birthday is his or her day to do whatever he or she wants, but my wishes are being ignored by a friend I’ll call Wade. For the last 10 years I have ignored my birthday and tried to avoid all celebrations. My family understands how I feel and gives me no grief. I met Wade five years ago. He’s a co-worker who has become a good friend. Wade has made it his goal in life to make me celebrate my birthday. I have tried being nice about the presents and even a surprise birthday party one year, but I really prefer to be left alone. He says I am “rude” for not letting

him celebrate my birthday. Other than this issue, he’s a great guy. Advice, Abby? — Non-Observant in Florida Dear Non-Observant: Wade may be a “great guy,” but he appears to be insensitive when it comes to respecting the feelings of others. Before your next birthday, “remind” him that you prefer not to celebrate or acknowledge it. A good friend should listen and respect the other person’s wishes. Dear Abby: I am one of four sisters. Two of my sisters, their husbands and

I want to plan a trip to Italy. We do not want to include our fourth sister and her husband. None of us like him or can forgive how he abused her in the past. For her sake, we tolerate him at family gatherings and holidays, but none of us want to be with him for an extended period. We also don’t think his health would allow him to do a lot of the things we want to do on this vacation. How do we plan this trip while excluding our sister and her husband without hurting her feelings or causing a big family blowup? Should we just not mention it? Or should we tell her she’s invited but not her husband? — Sis in a Pickle Dear Sis: Surely your sister knows how you all feel about her husband,

so it won’t be a shock if you tell her she is invited but he is not. Under the circumstances I doubt if she will join you, and there will probably be hurt feelings. But sneaking this past her would be like trying to smuggle dawn past a rooster, and I don’t think it would be long before she finds out anyway. Dear Abby: My husband and I have been married for nine years. I worked until 2010, and then quit to be a stay-at-home mom to our two small children. Because I no longer work, I watch what I spend, but my husband never lets me forget that he is the wage earner. When I want to spend money he always says, “What’s in it for me?” or, “What do I get?” I feel like this

degrades me. Why does he do this? — Stay-At-Home Mom in Georgia Dear Stay-At-Home Mom: Your husband may say it because he feels stressed or resentful that he is the sole wage earner now. The first time it happened you should have responded that “what’s in it for him” is that his children have a full-time mother, which the majority of children today don’t have, and “what he gets” out of it are offspring who have a mother rather than a caregiver raising them.
To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are a key part of a cycle. You’ll like your role, perhaps because it’s one you have never played before. Even though this is new territory, there’s already something graceful in your approach. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Someone is thinking of you and in just the way you would most prefer. It’s satisfying to have some control over the way you are perceived. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your power won’t grow from shunning the parts of you that you don’t like, but from integrating all parts of you and accepting the polarities: good and bad, strong and weak, yin and yang. CANCER (June 22-July 22). One person may spark your good mood, but you keep the flames alive even after this person has left. The field of love that is around us will not be an abstract concept to you now, but a reality that you can feel. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are moments in which you can’t see the point in drawing a conclusion, because the deeper you get into things the more you realize that everything is a mystery. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may have picked up an inaccurate belief along the way, and now it seems abundantly apparent. Put the idea to the test. You won’t have to ask too many questions to get to the truth. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Just as the wind moves stagnant energy outside, new influences move the energy of the mind. That’s why intellectual experiences are important to your health. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be even more sensitive to the energetic reality around you. You can pick up on dark auras and either do something to lighten them or avoid them altogether. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There are many risks around you now that are not worth taking. Ask yourself honestly: Are you willing to accept, surrender to and dwell in whatever comes of this action? If not, don’t take the action. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). So much negativity can be cleared away by simply cleaning up the environment of your thoughts and the environment of your home. You’ll be amazed at how much better you feel when all is clean. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Much of the action you take now is driven by the spirit of cooperation. Very little personal effort is involved, and this is because of your naturally friendly and helpful attitude. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Is it better to deliver a white lie or a hard truth? You aspire to telling the truth, but your compassion may influence you to take a softer approach. This is a call that only you can make. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 16). You have a clear sense of focus this year and will stay on task until your aims are accomplished. You have aspirations for your personal life, too, and refer to your wish list often. You’ll adventure with a special someone in the weeks to come, building lasting bonds. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 12, 5, 33 and 28.
