Money from legalized gam-
bling will provide more than
$13.4 million in property tax
cuts for an expected 93,638
homeowners in area school dis-
tricts in 2013-14, according to
information released Thursday
by the state Department of Edu-
cation.
Estimated tax relief for indi-
vidual homes varies from a low
of $52 in Dallas School District
to a high of $213 in Wilkes-Barre
Area, though complete data was
not available for Hazleton Area
School District.
The money comes from legal-
ized gambling courtesy of the
lawknown as Act 1 of 2006. The
amount varies from year to year
depending on how much money
is generated. This year $611.6
million is available statewide.
The state uses a formula to
determine how much each dis-
trict will receive, and the dis-
trict divides that money among
all eligible property owners.
Larger districts tend to get
more money, though size isnt
the sole factor in the complicat-
ed distribution formula.

KINGSTON Mayor James
Haggerty believes an adminis-
trative policy on organizations
requesting to hire police ofcers
for security has not been fol-
lowed.
Haggerty said Police Chief
Keith Keiper on Wednesday
voluntarily ac-
cepted a paid
a dmi ni s t r a -
tive leave of
absence while
an internal re-
view of prior
requests and
police assign-
ments is con-
ducted. The
review by Mu-
nicipal Admin-
istrator Paul
Keating is ex-
pected to take
several weeks,
Haggerty said.
The mayor
said his inter-
est in reviewing the policy grew
after he talked to a Times Lead-
er reporter checking on a report
that Keiper had retired Monday
morning. He did not.
It all developed in a hurry
after our phone call, Haggerty
said about a preliminary review.
He said an administrative
policy was put in place in Janu-
ary 2009 on requests from orga-
nizations and businesses seek-
ing police to conduct security
at events. Requests are made
by the Wyoming Valley West
School District and Wyoming
Seminary for athletic and social
events, organizers of the Irem
Shrine Circus held at the109th
Field Artillery Armory and busi-
nesses for security on weekends,
Haggerty said.
Pre-approval is required be-
fore ofcers can volunteer for
special detail on a sign-up sheet.
The request is then forwarded
to the Kingston Finance Depart

A
408-foot spire that will make One World Trade Center in New York the tall-
est building in the Western Hemisphere was moved into place Thursday to
cheers from dozens of construction workers on the ground. Workers draped a huge
American ag from the side of the spire before it began a 35-minute ascent in an
event lled with emotion as one of the nal steps of a construction project that
began when the Twin Towers were knocked from the New York skyline by terrorists
in 2001, killing 2,753 people. When all 18 sections of the 408-foot spire are nally
assembled and mounted in the coming weeks, One World Trade Center will be 1,776
feet tall, reaching higher than the 1,451-foot high Willis Tower, once known as Sears
Tower, in Chicago.
THORNHURST TWP.
Dozens of people attending
one of two public hearings at
the Thornhurst Volunteer Fire
Station on Thursday had to
drive through a scenic wood-
land lled with pristine water-
ways to get there.
And many who spoke at the
state Public Utility Commis-
sion hearings want to keep it
that way.
The hearings focused on a
57-mile electric reliability im-
provement line that PPL Elec-
tric has proposed to construct
between Jenkins Township
in Luzerne County and Lake
Township in Wayne County
that also would traverse the
North Pocono region of Lacka-
wanna County.
In total, the project would
increase electricity reliability
for about 250,000 customers

U.S. suicide rate rose sharply
among middle-aged whites
NEW YORK The suicide
rate among middle-aged Ameri-
cans climbed a startling 28 per-
cent in a decade, a period that
included the recession and the
mortgage crisis, the government
reported Thursday.
The trend was most pro-
nounced among white men and
women in that age group. Their
suicide rate jumped 40 percent
between 1999 and 2010.
But the rates in younger and
older people held steady. And
there was little change among
middle-aged blacks, Hispanics
and most other racial and ethnic
groups, the report from the Cen-
ters for Disease Control and Pre-
vention found.
One theory suggests the
recession caused more
emotional trauma in whites.

WEST WYOMING Resi-
dents from surrounding com-
munities concerned about the
effects of a proposed natural
gas facility planned for a part of
West Wyoming testied about
their fears Thursday night at
a Public Utilities Commission
hearing.
UGI Penn Natural Gas has
petitioned the PUC for per-
mission to build a gate station
that would measure natural gas
from the Auburn Pipeline be-
fore it enters the Transco inter-
national pipeline.
By using its sister company,
Penn Natural Gas, which is a
public utility provider, UGI is
able to bypass zoning restric-
tions because a utility directly
services its customers.
Held at the boroughs Hose
Company No. 2, the hearing
brought out residents who stat-
ed their fears and worries about
what problems the facility may
cause.
Raymond Metzo of Firecut
Road lives 100 feet away from
the proposed site, with half of
his property located in West
Wyoming and the other half
in Kingston Township. He said
trees have been cleared to make
room for the facility, which in-
cludes four structures on a 3.2-
acre plot.
He said he not only worries
that his property will be worth-
less if the gate station is built,
but also about the noise pollu-
tion that would accompany it.
The noise travels in the
country like you would not be-
lieve, he said.
UGI spokesperson Joseph
Swope said that gas delivered
through the proposed gate sta-
tion will save UGI/PNG cus-
tomers approximately $11 mil-
lion from Dec. 1, 2013 through
Oct. 31, 2020.
But Bunker Hill resident Ma-
ria Dubiel also lives close to
the proposed site in Kingston
Township. She said neither she
nor the hundreds and hun-
dreds of people she said shes
talked to who live near the pro-
posed site would benet from
the facility because they are not
natural gas customers.
If this exception is allowed
it will open a Pandoras Box,
she said.
In a prepared statement,
West Wyoming Borough Coun-
cil President Eileen Cipriani
stated the borough objects
to UGIs petition to build the
structures for the metering sta-
tion.
There has been no submis-
sion of any kind by UGI Penn
Natural Gas that the proposed
structures in any way directly
result in any convenience or
welfare for the public in West
Wyoming Borough, she stated.
A nal, evidentiary hearing
on the plan will be held in Har-
risburg on June 3 and 4.
HANOVER TWP. A father
and mother waived their rights
to preliminary hearings Thurs-
day on charges they did not
stop their sons fromsexually as-
saulting a girl.
John E. Davis, 43, of West No-
ble Street, Nanticoke, waived a
single count of child endanger-
ment to Luzerne County Court,
while his wife, Laurie Ann Da-
vis, 35, waived two counts of
child endangerment to county
court.
Nanticoke police said the par-
ents were aware their two sons,
Nicholas James Molino, 19, and
a 16-year-old, had sex with the
teenage girl but did not stop
them, according to the criminal
complaints.
Molino waived his right to a
preliminary hearing Thursday,
sending two counts of indecent
assault to county court. The
16-year-old boy was petitioned
to county juvenile court.
The cases were transferred to
District Judge Joseph Halesey
in Hanover Township from Dis-
trict Judge Donald Whittaker in
Nanticoke due to a conict of
interest.
According to the criminal
complaints:
A teenage girl told police on
Jan. 29 she was sexually assault-
ed by a 16-year-old boy known
to her. She said the boys par-
ents, John Davis and Laurie Da-
vis, knewabout the assaults and
did nothing to stop the acts.
Laurie Davis allegedly told a
child caseworker she found out
her son was having sexual rela-
tions with the girl about a year
ago. She said she admonished
her son, telling him, Youre not
suppose to do things like that.
You did not even use a con-
dom. What if you got her preg-
nant?
The girl said she was sexually
assaulted by the 16-year-old boy
on Jan. 27, two days before re-
porting the alleged assaults to
police.
The Davis other son, Molino,
was charged with molesting
the same girl inside the fam-
ilys West Noble Street home on
Sept. 20, the complaint says.

Nanticoke police allege

UNITED NATIONS Killer
robots that can attack targets with-
out any human input should not
have the power of life and death
over human beings, a new draft
U.N. report says.
The report for the U.N. Human
Rights Commission deals with
legal and philosophical issues in-
volved in giving robots lethal pow-
ers over humans, echoing count-
less science-ction novels and
lms. The debate dates to author
Isaac Asimovs rst rule for robots
in the 1942 story Runaround: A
robot may not injure a human be-
ing or, through inaction, allow a
human being to come to harm.
Report author Christof Heyns,
a South African professor of hu-
man rights law, calls for a world-
wide moratorium on the testing,
production, assembly, transfer, ac-
quisition, deployment and use of
killer robots until an international
conference can develop rules for
their use.
His ndings are due to be debat-
ed at the Human Rights Council in
Geneva on May 29.
According to the report, the
United States, Britain, Israel,
South Korea and Japan have devel-
oped various types of fully or semi-
autonomous weapons.
In the report, Heyns focuses on
a new generation of weapons that
choose their targets and execute
them. He calls them lethal au-
tonomous robotics, or LARs for
short, and says: Decisions over
life and death in armed conict
may require compassion and in-
tuition. Humans while they are
fallible at least might possess
these qualities, whereas robots
denitely do not.
The report goes beyond the re-
cent debate over drone killings of
al-Qaida suspects and nearby ci-
vilians who are maimed or killed
in the air strikes. Drones do have
human oversight. The killer robots
are programmed to make autono-
mous decisions on the spot.

HANOVER TWP. A phy-
sician fromMountain Top was
arraigned Thursday on evi-
dence of drunken driving af-
ter Wright Township police al-
lege he was intoxicated when
driving an all-terrain vehicle
after going grocery shopping.
Mark Anthony Gonsky, 60,
of Loop Road, was charged
with two counts of driving
under the inuence of alco-
hol and one count each of
unlawful operation of ATV in
a careless way, operating an
ATV without insurance and
operating an ATV on public
streets. He was arraigned by
District Judge Joseph Hale-
sey in Hanover Township and
jailed at the Luzerne County
Correctional Facility for lack
of $20,000 bail.
According to the criminal
complaint:
Wright Township police
said Gonsky was seen leaving
Weis Market on South Moun-
tain Boulevard on an ATV on
April 29. Gonsky stopped in
front of a bank and told police
he was doing nothing wrong.
Police said Gonsky pro-
duced his drivers license but
was unable to provide an in-
surance card for the ATV.
Gonsky stated that he drove
the ATV to the grocery store
because he is unable to ride a
bicycle and has a difcult time
getting into and out of a ve-
hicle. He said he was using a
cane to shift the ATV due to a
medical condition that affects
both of his legs from a previ-
ous accident, the complaint
says.
Police allege in the com-
plaint Gonsky displayed signs
of intoxication. He was taken
to Geisinger Wyoming Val-
ley Medical Center, where a
blood test showed an alcohol
level of .189 percent.
In an unrelated incident,
Gonsky waived his right to
a preliminary hearing on
Wednesday, sending charges
of reckless endangerment, ter-
roristic threats and disorderly
conduct to Luzerne County
Court.
Those charges allege Gon-
sky threatened Fairview
Township police Sgt. Dennis
Monk on Feb. 24, according
to court records.
A preliminary hearing on
the DUI charge is scheduled
on May 8.

Casey boosts restaurants
U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton,
joined on Thursday by owners of local
restaurants, pushed for passage of new,
bipartisan legislation he says would
promote new construction and retail
improvements at restaurants across the
state.
Standing at P.J. Scanlans, Casey high-
lighted data showing
the role restaurants
play in creating jobs
and boosting eco-
nomic growth across
the state. Passing the
bipartisan legislation,
he said, would give
small businesses the
certainty they need to
grow their businesses and create jobs.
Casey said his bill would increase ac-
cess to capital by permanently extend-
ing the 15-year tax depreciation period
for leasehold improvements, restaurant
improvements and new construction
and retail improvements. It is designed
to give companies the certainty they
need to invest in their businesses and
expand. These capital investments, he
said, fuel economic activity and create
jobs.

County director warns years
of state budget cuts are hurt-
ing homeless, others.
WILKES-BARRE After ve
straight years of cuts in state
grant funding, Luzerne County
Human Services chief Mary
Dysleski found herself doing
some wishful thinking Thurs-
day.
It would be
nice if during
this budget
process they
(state legisla-
tors) decided
to give us
more money,
Dysleski, the
acting direc-
tor, said. At least restore us to
where we were ve years ago.
Dysleski said the county re-
ceived $18.5 million in state
block grant funding for 2012-
13, and Gov. Tom Corbett did
not reduce that allocation in his
proposed 2013-14 budget. The
legislature must now approve
the budget.
Dysleski said funding cuts
coupled with increasing xed
costs such as utilities and em-
ployee benets have resulted
in a reduction of services.
Even if were approved for
last years allocation, it still
makes it difcult, she said.
That translates to less, or dif-
ferent, services for people.
During two hearings held
Tuesday and Thursday, Dysleski
said agency representatives of-
fered suggestions, as did con-
sumers of services and inter-
ested people from the general
public.
Dysleski said many of the
concerns centered on Luzerne
Countys homeless population.
She said talks have been held
regarding the establishment of
a centralized homeless shelter
a one-stop shop for people in
need of shelter, food, clothing,
counseling and other services,
such as help with job searches.
Without a central shelter,
many of the homeless are land-
ing in prisons or hospitals,
she said. These are homeless
people and people with mental

Dysleski said there was dis-

SCRANTON Energy company al-
liances and business groups gathered
Thursday for a gas-industry pulse-
check and to talk about where Marcel-
lus Shale drilling is headed.
With drilling operations less than 30
miles fromNortheastern Pennsylvanias
population centers, Helen Humphreys,
a Williams energy company spokes-
woman, said it is good to let the Scran-
ton/Wilkes-Barre community know
whats happening in the industry.
Introducing one of the speaker pan-
els, state Sen. John Yudichak, D-Plym-
outh Township, told the audience of
about 300 in the Hilton Scranton &
Conference Center that developing nat-
ural gas is essential to bringing down
the regions high unemployment rate.
I believe the path to our economic
recovery goes straight through the gas
elds in the Marcellus Shale play in
Pennsylvania, Yudichak said.
Current global demand for natural
gas is 63 billion cubic feet per day and
output exceeds that, said Paul Smith, a
demand developer for Americas Natu-
ral Gas Alliance.
Many speakers noted fewer rigs are
drilling in the region than a couple of
years ago. Global competition has driv-
en down the price of natural gas, and
many drillers are moving rigs to the
Bakken Shale deposit in North Dakota,
where crude oil development offers a
strong immediate return.
Regardless, it was agreed that Mar-
cellus development will grow stronger,
just not as fast as it did a few years ago.
Were convinced that its here to
stay, Smith said.
Industry experts lled discussion
panels to make examples of how their
companies do business. Most said they
rely heavily on local contractors, some
almost entirely.
About the only company thats not
(from the area), is our X-ray company,

sor Chris Cook. And were working on

Prosecutors seek more charges against DeAbreu
WILKES-BARRE Lu-
zerne County prosecutors
want to add more charges
against a mother accused
of covering up the deadly
shooting of 14-year-old Tyler
Winstead last year.
Angelina DeAbreu, 31, of
East Stroudsburg, is sched-
uled to appear in Luzerne
County Court on Monday
for the rst day of her trial
on charges of corruption of
minors, tampering with evi-
dence and false reports that
incriminated another per-
son.
Prosecutors on Thursday
led a motion seeking to add
hindering the investigation
by concealing evidence, hin-
dering the investigation by
providing false information
to law enforcement and pro-
viding false reports to law
enforcement.
Judge David Lupas sched-
uled a hearing on the request
on Monday before jury selec-
tion.
Prosecutors moved to
add the charges because De-
Abreu did not plead guilty as
expected.
Court records say De-
Abreu appeared in court on
Dec. 19 and backed out of a
plea deal when she learned
prosecutors were moving for
a sentence that included in-
carceration.
Prosecutors are likely
to face a challenge by De-
Abreus attorneys, Thomas
Marsilio and Larry Kansky.
DeAbreu surrendered
Aug. 31 at the ofce of Dis-
trict Judge Rick Cronauer on
the charges she is currently
facing at trial.
City police and county
detectives allege Winstead
was shot on April 5, 2012, in-
side DeAbreus house at 117
Hill St. when her son, Elijah
Yusiff, removed a .22-caliber
revolver from a book-shaped
case. Winstead was sitting on
a bed in DeAbreus bedroom
when Yusiff turned with his

the trigger,

WILKES-BARRE - Police
on Thursday charged Barrion
Smoot, 49, of North Penn-
sylvania Avenue, with gun-
related charges, saying he was a
convicted felon and illegally in
possession of a handgun.
Smoot was arraigned at a
local hospital on felony charges
of carrying a rearm without a
license, possession of a rearm
with an altered serial number
and a convicted felon in posses-
sion of a rearm. He was unable
to post the $30,000 bail set in
his case and will be committed
to the county prison.
According to arrest papers:
City ambulance personnel
were called to Blackman Street
around 12:40 p.m. Wednesday
for a report of a man, later
identied as Smoot, down in
the roadway. Witnesses di-
rected a police ofcer who also
responded to the scene to a
handgun on the treelawn near
the intersection of Blackman
and High streets.
The witnesses said the man
appeared to be having a seizure
and made numerous grabs at
the gun that was next to him
on the roadway. One of the wit-
nesses said he kicked the gun
out of the mans reach and a
city paramedic placed it on the
treelawn.
Smoot was combative with
paramedics, and for his safety
and that of the rst respond-
ers the ofcer handcuffed him
to the stretcher. A reghter
who responded to the call saw
a magazine for the handgun
in Smoots pants pocket and
removed it. The magazine con-
tained two .380-caliber rounds.
Smoot also had a holster made
from a coat hanger attached to
sweatpants under his jeans.
HANOVER TWP. A town-
ship man faces child pornog-
raphy charges after detectives
alleged that they traced back
pornographic videos to his
computer.
While conducting undercover
investigations into the Internet
sharing of child pornography,
Luzerne County Detective
Charles Balogh, a member of
the Internet Crimes Against
Children Task Force, and Duane
Tabak, special agent with the
state Attorney Generals Ofce,
found computers on the ARES
le-sharing network that con-
tained child pornography.
The computers were traced
back to Lewis Cudo Jr., 65, of
Main Road, Hanover Township.
Police served a search warrant
at Cudos address on Wednes-
day and seized three computers
and approximately 306 assorted
CDs and DVDs.
Police say Cudo admitted to
downloading child pornogra-
phy because he was curious
and adult porn was boring.
He told investigators that after
downloading child and adult
porn, he would transfer the les
onto the CDs and DVDs. When
asked the age of the youngest
child in any of the material he
downloaded, Cudo said it was a
3-year-old.
Police say Cudo admitted
that he was sexually aroused by
child pornography and stated:
I was going to get rid of every-
thing today, but you beat me to
the punch.
Cudo was charged with three
counts of child pornography,
two counts of disseminating
photos or lms of child sex acts
and one count each of criminal
use of a communication facility
and selling obscene/sexual ma-
terials. He was arraigned before
District Judge Joseph Halesey,
who set his bail at $20,000. His
preliminary hearing is sched-
uled for 9:30 a.m. Tuesday
before Halesey.
VATICANCITYEmeri-
tus Pope Benedict XVI came
home to the Vatican on
Thursday for the rst time
since he resigned Feb. 28,
beginning an unprecedented
era for the Catholic Church
of having a retired pontiff
living alongside a reigning
one.
Pope Francis welcomed
Benedict outside his new re-
tirement home a convert-
ed monastery on the edge of
the Vatican gardens and
the two immediately went
into the adjoining chapel to
pray together, the Vatican
said.
The Vatican said Bene-
dict, 86, was pleased to be
back and that he would as
he himself has said dedi-
cate himself to the service
of the church above all with
prayer. Francis, the state-
ment said, welcomed him
with brotherly cordiality.
A photo released by the
Vatican showed the two
men, arms clasped and both
smiling, standing inside the
doorway of Benedicts new
home as Benedicts secre-
tary looks on.
Unlike the live, door-
to-door Vatican-provided
television coverage that ac-
companied Benedicts emo-
tional farewell in February,
the Vatican provided no tele-
vision images of his return
Thursday.
The low-key approach fol-
lowed the remarkable yet
somewhat alarming images
transmitted on March 23
when Francis went to visit
Benedict at the papal retreat
in Castel Gandolfo, south of
Rome, where Benedict was
living. In that footage, Bene-
dict appeared visibly more
frail and thinner only three
weeks after resigning.
Some Vatican ofcials
questioned whether those
images should have been re-
leased, given howfrail Bene-
dict appeared. Thursdays
photo showed no obvious
signs of further decline.
The Vatican spokesman,
the Rev. Federico Lom-
bardi, has acknowledged
Benedicts post-retirement
decline but has insisted the
86-year-old German isnt suf-
fering from any specic ail-
ment and is just old.
He is a man who is not
young: He is old and his
strength is slowly ebbing,
Lombardi said this week.
However, there is no spe-
cial illness. He is an old man
who is healthy.
Benedict chose to leave
the Vatican immediately af-
ter his resignation to physi-
cally remove himself from
the process of electing his
successor and from Pope
Francis rst weeks as pon-
tiff.
His absence also gave
workers time to nish up
renovations on the monas-
tery tucked behind St. Pe-
ters Basilica that until last
year housed groups of clois-
tered nuns who were invited
for a few years at a time to
live inside the Vatican to
pray.

Boston student visa invalid
O
ne of three college students arrested
Wednesday in the Boston Marathon
bombings case was allowed to return
to the United States from Kazakhstan
in January despite not having a valid
student visa, a federal law enforcement
ofcial told The Associated Press.
Authorities charged the student,
Azamat Tazhayakov a friend and
classmate of one of the men accused of
setting off the deadly explosions with
helping after the attacks to remove a

Food crisis blame assigned
According to analysts, a violent

anti-terrorism policy.
Nearly 260,000 people died, half of
them children younger than 5, accord-
ing to a report released Thursday by
the U.S.-based Famine Early Warning
System, or FEWSNET, and the United
Nations Food and Agriculture Organiza-
tion.
The ndings follow the rst deni-

Snow day rare, unwelcome
Schoolchildren in Minnesota and

Nancy Keller of Owatonna said her
three kids were getting fed up with the
endless winter. She said several of their
tennis, soccer matches and eld trips
already have been postponed.
Theyre getting tired of having things
canceled, Keller said.
Such was the sentiment in other
states that also got slammed by the
two-day storm which dropped a wintry
mix of snow and rain Wednesday from
Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado and Wyo-
ming into Nebraska, South Dakota and
Iowa. It delivered the rst May snowfall
in Sioux Falls, S.D., in 37 years.

President
Obama
in Mexico
for talks
MEXICO CITY Seeking
to put a new spin on a long-
standing partnership, President
Barack Obama is promoting jobs
and trade not drug wars or
border security as the driving
force behind the
U.S.-Mexico re-
lationship. But
security con-
cerns are shad-
owing his two-
day visit, given
Mexicos recent
moves to limit
American law
enforcement ac-
cess within its
borders.
Arriving in
Mexico City on
Thursday on
his rst trip to
Latin America
since winning
r e - e l e c t i o n ,
Obama was met at the steps of
his plane by an honor guard and
a trumpeting bugler. He greeted
top Mexican ofcials before
heading to the National Palace
for meetings with President En-
rique Pena Nieto, who took of-
ce in December. The two lead-
ers were to speak at a joint news
conference Thursday evening.
Obama is looking for more
details from Pena Nieto about
changes he is making to the
robust security relationship
between the neighboring coun-
tries. In a shift from his prede-
cessor, Felipe Calderon, Pena
Nieto has moved to end the
widespread access U.S. security
agencies have had in Mexico to
help ght drug trafcking and
organized crime.
The president and his advisers
are saying they need to hear di-
rectly from the Mexican leader
before making a judgment.
With the new Mexican ad-
ministration coming into ofce,
it certainly stands to reason that
President Pena Nieto would
want to take a look at the nature
of our cooperation, said Ben
Rhodes, Obamas deputy na-
tional security adviser. So were
currently working with the Mex-
icans to evaluate the means by
which we cooperate, the means
by which we provide assistance.
The White House, hoping to
move the discussion surround-
ing the presidents trip beyond
security, has emphasized in re-
cent days a desire to boost eco-
nomic ties to Mexico.
Mexico accounts for $500 bil-
lion in U.S. trade in 2001 and
ranking as the second-largest
export market for U.S. goods.
A stronger Mexican economy
would result in even more trade
and job growth on both sides of
the border, Obama aides say.
Security concerns shadowing
visit, given Mexicos moves to
limit U.S. law enforcement.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kath-
leen Kane said Wednesday that she
expected to receive the Corbett admin-
istrations revised contract to privatize
the Pennsylvania Lottery any day now
but signaled that she likely will not
approve the proposal unless the legisla-
ture gets to sign off.
They would have to vote on it just
like any other privatization deal, and
also, they would have to change the
gaming rules, Kane said. She added
that she had seen no sign that the legis-
lature would be given such a role.
In February, Kane
rejected Gov. Corbetts
contract with British-
based Camelot Global
Services, ruling that
parts of it violated the
state constitution. The
Attorney Generals Of-
ce reviews state con-
tracts.
Kane made her latest remarks at a
meeting with Inquirer editors and re-
porters to review her rst 100 days in
ofce. She said administration ofcials
had told her ofce they would send a
revised lottery deal for review some-
where around the rst week of May.
When Kane, a Democrat, initially
struck down the contract, it was seen
as a political blow to Corbett, a Repub-
lican, who has made privatization of
state services a goal.
Asked if a recongured deal could
pass muster without accompanying
legislation, Kane said, I dont know,
but Im not making the decision on the
contract before it gets to my desk.
Her staff determined that the
Camelot deal usurped the legislatures
authority to regulate and manage the
lottery. She also said that by allowing
the lottery to add electronic games such
as keno, the contract would exceed
what is authorized under state law.
A Corbett aide said Wednesday that
revisions were still under way. We had
indicated to (Kanes ofce) that the
earliest they might see a revised con-
tract is the rst week of May, said Nils
Frederik-sen, spokesman for the Ofce
of General Counsel. The agreement
with Camelot expires June 30.

As U.S. drone strikes rise in Yemen, so does the anger
SANAA, Yemen The cleric
preached in his tiny Yemeni vil-
lage about the evils of al-Qaida,
warning residents to stay away
from the groups ghters and
their hard-line ideology. The
talk worried residents, who
feared it would bring retaliation
from the militants, and even the
clerics father wanted him to
stop.
But in the end it wasnt al-
Qaida that killed Sheik Salem
Ahmed bin Ali Jaber.
Al-Qaida ghters, who hide
in mountain strongholds near
the remote eastern village of
Khashamir, did call him out,
demanding he meet them one
night apparently to intimi-
date him into stopping his ser-
mons against them.
Sheik Salem felt he had no
choice but to meet them, but
a cousin who was in the police
insisted on accompanying him
as protection, according to the
clerics brother-in-law, Faysal bin
Ali bin Jaber, who recounted the
events to The Associated Press.
Once they arrived to the
car where al-Qaida was, four
missiles hit, Faysal said. At
home in the village, he heard
the blasts and heard the U.S.
drone that struck the cars. We
know the buzzing sound of the
drones overhead, he said.
Yemeni security ofcials con-
rmed three militants, along
with Sheik Salemand his cousin
were killed in the strike last Au-
gust and that it was carried out
by an American drone.
In its covert ght against al-
Qaida in Yemen, the United
States has dramatically stepped
up its use of drone strikes the
past year, scoring key successes
against one of the most active
branches of the terror network.
With more than 40 strikes re-
ported in 2012 and nine so far
this year, Yemen has become
the second biggest front in
American drone warfare, after
Pakistan.
But the escalation has meant
more civilians getting caught in
the crossre.
Civilian deaths are breeding
resentments on a local level,
sometimes undermining U.S. ef-
forts to turn the public against
militants.
yemen is second biggest
front in American drone
warfare, after Pakistan.

BOSTON Bombing sus-
pect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and
his older brother, Tamerlan, ini-
tially planned the attack for the
upcoming July Fourth holiday
but changed their minds shortly
before the Boston Marathon be-
cause the race was an ideal tar-
get, a federal law enforcement
source said Thursday.
The rapid assembly of two
pressure cooker bombs that ex-
ploded at the marathon April 15
went faster than the two broth-
ers expected and also weighed
on their decision to change their
plans, the source said.
Information about the switch
in targets came from several in-
vestigative threads and details
gleaned from hospital inter-
views with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
two weeks ago before he was
read his Miranda rights and
stopped talking to authorities,
the source said.
The 19-year-old student at
the University of Massachusetts
Dartmouth told FBI agents he
and Tamerlan Tsarnaev saw Pa-
triots Day and the symbolism
attached to it as an ideal time
to set off the bombs, the source
said. Turning the attack into a
suicide bombing was one possi-
bility the brothers considered,
the source said.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev told in-
vestigators that he and his broth-
er built their pressure cooker
bombs at Tamerlan Tsarnaevs
home, according to the source.
Once they settled on a day for
the attack, they scouted the
marathon course before decid-
ing that the nish line packed
with onlookers and a large news
media presence was where
they would set off the bombs,
the source said.
Federal investigators also
continued to search two lap-
top computers belonging to
the Tsarnaev brothers for any
evidence the pair had help plan-
ning the attacks, according to
the law enforcement source.
And Thursday night, Tamerlan
Tsarnaevs body was claimed,
said Terell Harris, a spokesman
for the Boston medical exam-
iners ofce.
Harris would not say who
claimed the body or whether it
was removed from the medical
examiners headquarters.
Tuesday, attorneys for Kath-
erine Russell, Tamerlan Tsar-
naevs wife, said her wish was
that his remains be released to
his family and we will commu-
nicate her wishes to the proper
authorities.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev died after
an early-morning shootout four
days after the attacks following
a high-speed chase from the
Cambridge campus of the Mas-
sachusetts Institute of Technol-
ogy to the Boston suburb of Wa-
tertown.

willing to commit to a 25-year
student housing agreement.

HAZLETON A city man
faces child pornography charges
after detectives alleged that
they traced back pornographic
videos to his computer.
While conducting undercover
investigations into the Internet
sharing of child pornography,
Luzerne County Detective
Charles Balogh, a member of
the Internet Crimes Against
Children Task Force, and
Trooper Mark Mackachinas,
of the state police Northeast
Computer Crime Unit, found a
computer on the ARES fle-
sharing network that contained
les with child pornography.
The computer was traced
back to Victor Quezada-Gabriel,
20, of East Diamond Avenue.
Police served a search warrant
at Quezada-Gabriels address on
Thursday and seized a com-
puter and a ash drive, each
of which has ve video les
depicting child pornography on
them.
Police say Quezada-Gabriel
admitted to downloading child
pornography and was looking
for girls between the ages of 14
and 15.
Quezada-Gabriel was charged
with 10 counts of child pornog-
raphy, two counts of disseminat-
ing photos or lms of child sex
acts and one count of criminal
use of a communication facility.
He was arraigned before

JIM THORPE
Borough weighs
options on remains
Residents of Jim Thorpe are
weighing their options in the
aftermath of a judges ruling
that could pave the way for the
remains of the towns name-
sake to return to Oklahoma.
Last month, a federal judge
sided with Thorpes sons in
a lawsuit over whether they
could transport the legendary
Native American athletes re-
mains back to his home state.
Jim Thorpe ofcials met
with residents Wednesday
night to explain the ruling
means and discuss options,
which would be to comply with
the decision or le an appeal.
HARRISBURG
Housing authorities
absorbing fed cuts
Pennsylvanias local housing
authorities are absorbing deep
federal funding cuts, prompt-
ing them to shed employees,
cut back rent vouchers or put
off repairs to housing they own.
A deeper worry is that the
automatic federal funding cuts
known as the sequester will
never be replaced, and that
their nances and ability to
serve the poor will be perma-
nently diminished, housing au-
thority ofcials said Thursday.
Housing authorities report
that they have already been
absorbing funding cuts for the
past decade, before the latest
cuts took effect March 1.
But the latest cuts were
signicant for their depth and
suddenness.
Initially, housing author-
ity executives might have
anticipated that the federal
government would deliver
the missing part of the money
once Congress reconsidered
the cuts. Housing authority
ofcials estimate they are los-
ing nearly 10 percent of their
federal subsidy.
HARRISBURG
Ofcials: Fewer abused
kids in foster homes
Pennsylvania court ofcials
say the number of abused
and neglected children living
in foster homes is declining
because of stepped-up efforts
to put them in safe, permanent
homes.
The Administrative Ofce of
Pennsylvania Courts said Thurs-
day that there are now about
14,000 foster children, com-
pared to 21,000 six years ago.
State Supreme Court Justice
Max Baer, who is spearheading
efforts to improve the system,
says judges and child-welfare
workers are collaborating on
the effort to reduce the num-
ber of children in foster care.
STATE COLLEGE
Penn State to overhaul
wireless network
Penn States main campus is
planning an $8.5 million over-
haul of its wireless network.
The Centre Daily Times
reports that school ofcials
found the number of tablets,
laptops and other devices ac-
cessing the universitys Wi-Fi
has doubled in the past 15
months.
Thats bogging down the
wireless network at the State
College campus.
Ford Stryker is associate
vice president for the Ofce of

He said Thursday the plan is
to improve the patchwork of
hodgepodge coverage over a
two-year period.

PSU trustees to mull
board changes
Proposals to change how
Penn State is governed are
headed to the schools full
Board of Trustees.
The changes would include
reducing the size of voting
trustees by two to 30 by mak-
ing Pennsylvanias governor

Thursday, and one committee
recommended sending the
proposals to the full board

WASHINGTON Fewer
people are losing their jobs. Em-
ployers are struggling to squeeze
more work from their staffs. The
U.S. is producing so much oil that
imports are plunging, narrowing
the trade decit.
A string of data Thursday
raised hopes for stronger hir-
ing and U.S. growth in coming
months. More jobs would spur
spending and help energize the
economy, which has yet to regain
full health nearly four years af-
ter the Great Recession ofcially
ended.
And an interest rate cut Thurs-
day by the European Central
Bank, if it helps bolster the Eu-
ropean economy, could also con-
tribute to U.S. growth.
The U.S. economic reports
came one day before the govern-
ment will report how many jobs
employers added in April. Econo-
mists think the gain will exceed
the 88,000 jobs added in March,
the fewest in nine months.
The government said Thursday
that the number of Americans ap-
plying for unemployment aid fell
last week to a seasonally adjusted
324,000 the fewest since Janu-
ary 2008. Unemployment applica-
tions reect the pace of layoffs: A
steady drop means companies are
shedding fewer workers. Eventu-
ally, theyll need to hire to meet
customer demand or to replace
workers who quit.
The four-week average of un-
employment applications, which
is less volatile than the weekly
gure, sank to 342,250. That was
near a ve-year low.
The gures for unemployment
applications point to potential
improvement moving into May,
said Ted Wieseman, executive
director of Morgan Stanley Re-
search.
The government also said
Thursday that the productiv-
ity of U.S. workers barely grew
from January through March
after shrinking in the last three
months of 2012. Productivity
shows how much employees pro-
duce per hour of work. When it
remains weak, employers cant
keep pulling more output from
their staffs. As customer demand
strengthens, theyll need to hire.
Productivity grew at a season-
ally adjusted annual rate of 0.7
percent in the January-March
quarter. And that was after it
shrank in the October-December
quarter. For all of 2012, produc-
tivity rose a scant 0.7 percent,
after an even punier 0.6 percent
rise in 2011.
At the same time, the govern-
ment said the U.S. trade decit
narrowed in March for a second
month. The main reason: The
daily ow of imported crude oil
reached a 17-year low.
U.S. economic reports
hold out hope for hiring
The government will report
today how many jobs
employers added in April.

Harrisburg Bishop Joseph
P. McFadden, who served as
the rst president of Cardinal
OHara High School in Marple,
was stricken early this morn-
ing while in Philadelphia for a
Pennsylvania bishops meeting
and died. He would have been
66 on May 22.
The bishop awoke feeling
ill at St. Christopher Parish
rectory and was taken to Holy
Redeemer Hospital in Philadel-
phia where he was pronounced
dead at about 7:40 a.m., accord-
ing to ofcials in the Diocese
of Harrisburg and the Archdio-
cese of Philadelphia. The cause
of his death has not yet been
announced.
He was just a people per-
son, a student-centered per-
son. He just loved being with
people. He loved being with
people, said William Mc-
Cusker, who became principal
at OHara when McFadden be-
came president in 1993, then
eight years later succeeded him
as president, which he remains
today.
On June 22, 2010, Pope Bene-
dict XVI named McFadden
the 10th bishop of Harrisburg
where he was installed at St.
Patrick Cathedral on Aug. 18,
2010. The diocese is currently
being governed by the College
of Consultors who have eight
days to elect an administrator
until a new bishop is appointed
by Pope Francis.
Although he served as the
Bishop of Harrisburg for only
a short time, he effectively em-
braced the call of our former
Holy Father, Pope Benedict
XVI, to use new forms of me-
dia to proclaim the message of
the Gospel. His service in our
state capital was instrumental
in fostering the teachings of the
Church in the public square,
Philadelphia Archbishop
Charles Chaput said on Thurs-
day.
McCusker met McFadden be-
fore the bishop became a priest,
when they both were teaching
history at the old West Catholic
High School for Boys in Phila-
delphia in the early 1970s. Mc-
Cusker and his wife, Judy, con-
sidered McFadden one of their
best friends. He had presided
over the weddings of all ve of
their children and baptized all
nine of their grandchildren.
We were both there when
he was ordained a priest and,
yes, we were there when he
was ordained a bishop and, yes,
we were in Harrisburg when he
was installed as bishop there,
said McCusker.

EDITORIAL
Writer: County controller
has served public well
I
have spoken to many people who have
expressed their approval of the job Lu-
zerne County Controller Walter Grifth
has done. I do not know him personally,
but have observed him at several public
meetings. I am a federal retiree from the
VA Hospital and learned body language.
There is no pretense in Mr. Grifth. What
you see is what you get.
I do not believe in telling people how
to vote. That is their American privilege,
but I do believe that has gone on for years
under former administrations. He has
been upbeat on programs that would save
or benet the county and taxpayers.
He attended all meetings where his
expertise was needed. In addition, and
most important, he has been visible and
available at public meetings to answer
questions, thus giving of his personal
time away from his family.
Mr. Grifth has proven himself to
his peers and taxpayers to be a man of
integrity, honesty and a servant of the
people. He occasionally has to perform
duties such as challenging the question-
able spending of a nonprot organization,
whose acquisition of 6 million dollars
of taxpayers money was supposed to
refurbish the Hotel Sterling. The issue is
under investigation. Because Mr. Grifth
is doing what his position as Controller
requires, he is vulnerable to accusations
prior to his seeking re-election. Anyone
with a grudge, with the availability of the
latest electronic technology can manipu-
late accusations against him or any other
candidate.
No matter what party a voter is regis-
tered with, Walter Grifth has served you
not the political parties.

Recent commentary
prompts sorrowful laughs
I
was amused to read the April 30 edito-
rial cartoon depicting an air trafc
controller - whose associates have re-
cently been laid off, creating ight delays
- wondering why the FAA administrator
who cant gure out how to manage a 2
percent cut without seriously disrupting
the entire industry isnt red himself.
Very good question.
Immediately following that cartoon is
commentary from an LA Times colum-
nist extolling the virtues of the Obama
administrations cost cutting activities.
Just the headline was funny - Obamas
ght to streamline federal regulations.
Even funnier, the article states that Cass
Sunstein, who brought the few successes
thus far left the government 8 months
ago, and Obama has not chosen to ll the
open position. In other words, the one
man who seemed concerned and capable
of actually managing the government in
a way to make it more efcient, is gone,
and there seems to be no urgency to
replace him.
The CEO of any company performing
as has the leader of our federal govern-
ment would have been red a long time
ago for incompetence and malfeasance
in ofce. Instead, this guy is reelected for
another four years. Still funnier.
Were it not for the serious damage
being done, one could have a real belly
laugh.

Credit sheriff for stance
on machine gun permit
I
would like to commend Luzerne County
Interim Sheriff John Robshaw for his de-
cision to not approve the required Class
III permit needed to buy a machine gun.
It is refreshing to read about a public
ofcial who has the courage of his convic-
tions. I was pleasantly surprised to learn
that the Commonwealth gives sheriffs the
discretion to make these serious deci-
sions.

Elected ofcials guilty in
failure to support checks
I
am completed disappointed in our
elected ofcials. When 90 percent of
the people support background checks I
would expect our elected ofcials to vote
accordingly. But I guess they are more
interested in their jobs and what the NRA
wants rather than what the people want.
In my view these ofcials are no better
than the people that pulled the trigger
and slaughtered so many people, so many
babies.

Shameful government
allows terrorists on dole
T
hose two cowards who were respon-
sible for the Boston carnage had plenty
of help from the United States govern-
ment. Both of those cowards received
welfare benets.
Allegedly, they used taxpayer dollars to
kill Americans, bought material for the
bombs with our money, attended our
schools, traveled to Russia and back. Sev-
enteen Muslim terrorist lived among us
also as neighbors and killed 3,000 people
on 9/11, and the same excuses - law en-
forcement failed to exchange information.
Those cowards along with family came
here for the American dream and the
citizens of Boston received a nightmare.
The governor of Massachusetts refuses to
release any information on government
benets those cowards received under
the privacy act.

Plymouth councilman
is seeking re-election
I
would like to clear up the rumor that
has circulated around Plymouth for the
last few weeks. The rumor is that I have
resisgned my seat on borough council.
That is completely false! I am still a mem-
ber of Plymouth Borough Council I have
not resigned my seat.
This rumor was started when on March
8 I had to make what was one of the most
difcult decisions I had to make while
serving in public ofce. The decision was
to step down as Council President and
only as presdient for personal reasons. I
will continue to work and ght hard as I
can for the benet of Plymouth Borough
and all our residents.
I feel that there is so much more that I
would like to see done for the betterment
of our town. This is why I am running for
re-election to the councill.
I would like to thank all the residents of
Plymouth for their continued support.

OTHER OPINION: POLITCAL BUCKS
Require companies
to disclose donors
T
HE SECURITIES and
Exchange Commis-
sion is considering a
rule to require public-
reporting companies to disclose
their political contributions. The
American political system needs
such a rule.
Since the Supreme Courts
Citizens United decision, com-
panies have been free to spend
money in politics without limit,
though not directly to federal
candidates. Many companies
have donated through trade as-
sociations and front groups, put-
ting the intermediary groups in
the spotlight while the compa-
nies remain in the shadows.
This is dishonest. When an
interested party is spending big
money to reach voters, those
voters need to know who is
speaking to them.
Shareholder advocates have
been pushing companies to dis-
close contributions, and some
companies have agreed to do it.
Boeing now says it has a policy
to prohibit trade associations
and other third-party organiza-
tions from using Boeings funds
for any election-related political
expenditure. That is a good
policy.
More than half the Fortune
100 companies have adopted
some kind of disclosure policy,
says Bruce Herbert, chief execu-
tive of Investor Voice, a Seattle
social-purpose company.
It is time to make disclosure a
requirement for all public com-
panies.
The objection to this is that
the SEC exists to protect inves-
tors, not voters, and that politi-
cal spending is too small to af-
fect stock values. Maybe it is,
but investors are also owners.
If the owners of a company
want to know what political
causes it supports, it ought to
tell them, because it is their
company. People want to know.
They want to know what their
company is saying, and what
other companies are saying to
them.
The SEC has been compelling
corporate disclosure for almost
80 years. It has the power to do
this, and it should do it.

Right to Know
needs more clout
P
ENNSYLVANIAS laugh-
ably weak Right to
Know laws must be
strengthened. Revisions
made just ve years ago opened
up even larger loopholes that
need to be closed. If it is to have
any effect whatsoever, the state
Ofce of Open Records must be
the nal deciding factor on what
is made public.
When lawmakers revised the
states Right to Knowlaws, it did
so under the guise that govern-
ment should be transparent. Re-
cords should be open whenever
possible, according to the spirit
of the law, and government agen-
cies should be proactive in fulll-
ing requests for information.
Since those revisions, how-
ever, getting public records has
been made even more difcult,
according to Kim de Bourbon,
executive director of the Penn-
sylvania Freedom of Information
Coalition. Not only are many
local, county and state agen-
cies not complying with open-
records requests, some even go
so far as to at-out lie to deny
the release of taxpayer-funded
information.
A story in Mondays Sentinel
by the nonprot news group
PublicSource detailed an exam-
ple from2011 involving the state
Department of Environmental
Protection. The agency said it
couldnt fulll an information
request because it would mean
trawling through raw data
and creating a new record. In
fact, those records did exist. The
agency simply opted to lie about
it.
Perhaps even more troubling,
the revised Right to Know laws
opened up a giant loophole that
agencies never before had the
option of jumping through. The
Ofce of Open Records is the go-
to agency to appeal denied infor-
mation requests. However, that
ofce doesnt get the nal say in
anything. Government agencies
have the ability now to appeal
Ofce of Open Records rulings
using the court system.
A misconception is that Right
to Knowrequests primarily exist
so nosey reporters can get their
hands on private or personal in-
formation. PublicSources jour-
nalism revealed that only 4 per-
cent of Right to Know requests
come from media outlets. The
people being hurt the most by
the states weak open-govern-
ment laws are everyday citizens.
State lawmakers like to talk
out of both sides of their mouths
when it comes to open records.
Politicians delight in talking up
the virtues of full disclosure, yet
they approved Right to Know
laws that ensure the opposite
can happen far too frequently.
While the latest amendments
to the states Right to Knowlaws
are only ve years old, its time
for Harrisburg to reconvene and
truly get serious about the pub-
lics right to information about
our government.

trict received the smallest total,
getting $320,493 to distribute as
tax exclusions to an estimated
6,116 eligible property owners.
Wilkes-Barre Area received the
most at $2.9 million to distribute
to 13,622 people
Only homeowners and farm
owners qualify for the break;
commercial and rental proper-
ties do not.
The money comes in the form
of homestead or farmstead ex-
clusions, rather than a true tax
cut, meaning the property own-
er is technically billed the full
amount due and the exclusion is
deducted off that bill.
In releasing estimated home-
stead exclusions for each school
district Thursday, the state used
data for the number of eligible
properties from each county tax
assessment ofce. In some cases,
full data was not provided, so no
estimated exclusion was given.
Hazleton Area was one such
case. The Times Leader used
available data to calculate an ap-
proximation in the accompany-
ing chart.
In all cases, the nal exclusion
amount will be calculated by the
districts and could vary slightly
from the state estimates.
This years total allocation
statewide is $4 million less than
last year.

ment for billing and payment.
Ive seen documents that
were processed properly, but
Ive seen others that were not,
Haggerty said.
Haggerty said pre-approvals
came from Keiper and/or As-
sistant Police Chief Dan Hun-
singer, who retired in April to
become police chief in Forty
Fort. The mayor was quick to
point out that Keiper may not
have handled pre-approvals and
designated the task to subordi-
nates other than Hunsinger.
Right now, we dont know
if Chief Keiper or Hunsinger
were doing the pre-approvals,
or someone else in the depart-
ment, Haggerty said. But
Keiper is the police chief and
ultimately responsible. The best
way we thought to go forward is
if Keiper took an administrative
leave for an internal review.
Keiper and Hunsinger could
not be reached for comment on
Thursday.
Wyoming Valley West Su-
perintendent Chuck Suppon
said the school district utilizes
Kingston police for security at
football games, graduation and
dances held at the middle school
on Chester Street in Kingston.
He said all school-sponsored
events involves a formal request
to Kingston for ofcers that in-
cludes signed checks.
Suppon said he did recently
discover that one dance at the
middle school involved the pay-
ment of cash to ofcers who
signed receipts.
The superintendent said he
could not respond to dances
sponsored by different athletic
booster clubs because those
dances were not school spon-
sored.
I can say it was done for
some football games but not all
football games, Haggerty said.
This policy is in place to make
sure our ofcers are covered by
liability insurance. We wanted
to know where our ofcers are
working and to make sure our
town is protected in the event
an ofcer is hurt.
Last month, it was reported
that information related to the
Wyoming Valley West student
activities fund was turned over
to the Internal Revenue Service
for review.
Suppon said he has no knowl-
edge that the IRS is examining
the fund.

The 36-year-old inmate from
Arizona is under investigation
in the stabbing death of Wil-
liams on Feb. 25 at the U.S.
Penitentiary-Canaan. Williams
diedfrommultiple stab wounds
inicted by an inmate wielding
a homemade knife, according
to federal authorities.
Con-Ui was serving a sen-
tence at the prison in Canaan
for a 2005 conviction on drug
charges. He was indicted along
with six other men in June
2003 in Arizona for participat-
ing in a drug ring connected to
the New Mexican Maa gang.
He pleaded guilty to conspira-
cy to distribute cocaine and a
rearms charge and received a
sentence of 11 years and three
months.
Con-Ui was to be released
from federal custody on Sept.
17 , but still faced a life sen-
tence in Arizona for a rst-de-
gree murder conviction. He has
since been moved to the Ad-
ministrative Maximum Facility
in Florence, Colo., whose in-
mates include Ted Kaczynski,
the Unabomber; Ramzi Yousef,
convicted in the 1993 attack
on the World Trade Center,
and Terry Nichols, who helped
carry out the bombing of the
federal building in Oklahoma
City in 1995.
Wirth said. The project includes
the construction of three new
substations and 11.3 miles of
138/69-kilovolt line connecting
proposed substations in Coving-
ton Township in Lackawanna
County and Buck Township, Lu-
zerne County.
While many residents didnt
question the need for new
230-kilovolt transmission line,
most questioned the route the
line would follow.
The proposed route is inap-
propriate, said Philip Mosley
of Clifton Township. Calling
it nonsensical, he said there
are less intrusive ways the line
could run.
This was also pointed out by
state Rep. Kevin Haggerty, D-
Dunmore, who said he received
400 petitions on Thursday from
constituents. He was applauded
after telling an administrative
law judge a better route could be
found, and its not too far fromthe
current one being eyed by PPL.
Haggerty said the PPL route
would forever change the natu-
ral beauty of this area of the Po-
conos. He urged a route change
to the north of the proposed
one, saying its more rural and
less populated.
Others said there were pub-
lic lands adjacent to the route
that would be better suited and
would impact fewer private
properties.
Opponents cite reasons
One by one, residents
mostly fromThornhurst, Clifton
and Buck townships voiced
their displeasure for how the
line, with its 145-foot-tall steel
poles, would impact the bucolic
scenery that generations have
come to cherish.
June Ejk, a supervisor in Clif-
ton Township, noted her small,
rural municipality has no post
ofce, no police force and few
businesses.
People live in Clifton Town-
ship because they enjoy a sim-
pler, quieter way of life, she
said.
Edward Page, a Thornhurst
resident told the judge he pro-
tests the project most vehe-
mently.
Good luck trying to sell your
home if you live anywhere near
these gargantuan towers, Page
said.
Union weighs in
Not everyone who took the
podium opposed the project.
Henry Stanski, a member of
the International Brotherhood
of Electrical Workers, said the
project would create jobs. The
Shavertown resident said since
the last time he was in Thorn-
hurst he has noticed many new
homes and with it the increased
need for electricity.
PPL noted the current 69-ki-
lovolt power lines serving the
region are no longer adequate
for customer needs, especially
in winter months when residen-
tial heating increases demand.
Also, the region is served by
lines that span great distances,
in some cases 40 miles, making
the region more susceptible to
extended power outages.
Wirth also noted that moving
the lines further north would
defeat the purpose of the project
because the substations have
been slated for areas that have
the greatest need.
The lines must stay as close
to the substations as possible,
he said.
But Ron Ashton, a Buck
Township resident, said he is
convinced that the power would
be used by customers in New
Jersey and New York.
He said PPL is more inter-
ested in reliable revenue than
reliable service.
Administrative Law Judge
David A. Salapa will use the tes-
timony as the basis for his nd-
ings and will make a recommen-
dation to the PUC. The PUC,
at a future public meeting, will
use his recommendation and
either vote to afrm it, reject
it or modify it and vote on the
amended decision.
PPLs application states that
it wants construction to begin
in spring 2014 for an in-service
date of November 2017. But
before it could start it, the com-
pany needs PUC approval and
right of eminent domain.
Wirth said about 75 percent
of the properties needed have
been signed over.
But 32 remain, including
about a half-dozen in Luzerne
County.

DEATH
Why did so many middle-aged
whites that is, those who are
35 to 64 years old take their
own lives?
One theory suggests the re-
cession caused more emotional
trauma in whites, who tend not
to have the same kind of church
support and extended families
that blacks and Hispanics do.
The economy was in reces-
sion from the end of 2007 until
mid-2009. Even well afterward,
polls showed most Americans re-
mained worried about weak hir-
ing, a depressed housing market
and other problems.
Pat Smith, violence-prevention
program coordinator for the
Michigan Department of Com-
munity Health, said the reces-
sion which hit manufacturing-
heavy states particularly hard
may have pushed already-trou-
bled people over the brink. Being
unable to nd a job or settling for
one with lower pay or prestige
could add that nal weight to a
whole chain of events, she said.
Another theory notes that
white baby boomers have always
had higher rates of depression
and suicide, and that has held
true as theyve hit middle age.
During the 11-year period stud-
ied, suicide went from the eighth
leading cause of death among
middle-aged Americans to the
fourth, behind cancer, heart dis-
ease and accidents.
Some of us think were fac-
ing an upsurge as this generation
moves into later life, said Dr.
Eric Caine, a suicide researcher
at the University of Rochester.
One more possible contributor
is the growing sale and abuse of
prescription painkillers over the
past decade. Some people com-
mit suicide by overdose. In other
cases, abuse of the drugs helps
put people in a frame of mind to
attempt suicide by other means,
said Thomas Simon, one of the
authors of the CDCreport, which
was based on death certicates.

about nine months after losing
to Alabama in the BCS cham-

after the thought in terms of

CAMP HILL Like many wrestling
coaches, Cael Sanderson is known mostly
as being a competitor and stone-faced
when it comes to being in the spotlight.
Its rare to see the successful head coach
at Penn State University in a joking mood
in public or in front of media members.
The Penn State Coaches Caravan has
brought out the lighter
side of the 33-year-old
while spending time
with football coach Bill
OBrien and women
volleyball coach Russ
Rose in the Lancaster
and Harrisburg areas on
Thursday.
Im having fun. Im
just thinking of ways to
get at the other coaches
out there and give them
a hard time, said Sand-
erson, who led the Nit-
tany Lions on their third
straight national cham-
pionship in March and
is participating in his
first PSU caravan tour.
This is all about having
fun.
Heck, Sanderson even
admitted to looking
up some Chuck Norris
jokes on the Internet
in attempt to get some
laughs out of PSU faith-
ful at the Radisson in
Camp Hill Thursday
evening. But he didnt
give media members a
glimpse of what was to come.
He doesnt want to give away his mate-
rial, Rose said.
Sanderson even joked about having dis-
cussions with OBrien about a wrestling
meet being held at Beaver Stadium.
If OBrien would let us do something
in the corner of the stadium wed be there
in a heartbeat, Sanderson joked.
He quickly turned serious though when
asked about a possible meet at the Bryce
Jordan Center. The Nittany Lions hold
all home wrestling meets at Rec Hall, a
unique environment for wrestling to be
held because of the close atmosphere
and loudness levels despite a capacity of
Penn State wrestling coach says he en-
joys ribbing the schools other coaches

PETE G. WILCOX/THE TIMES LEADER
Dylan Reese (2) of the Penguins, left, tries to get a shot off in front of Senators goalie Nathan Lawson in the second period of Thursdays Calder Cup playoff
game at Mohegan Sun Arena.
WILKES-BARRE TWP. Zach Sills
shorthanded goal in the third period
of Thursdays Game 3 against the
Binghamton Senators gave the Wilkes-
Barre/Scranton Penguins a boost.
Riley Holzapfels goal 10 minutes
later gave them the series.
With starting netminder Jeff Zat-
koff a late scratch, the Penguins rode
a stellar goaltending effort from vet-
eran backup Brad Thiessen and scored
three times in the third period for a 3-2
win. The victory gave the Penguins a
3-0 sweep of the Senators and a ticket
to the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
Its a nice feeling to do it in three
games, said head coach John Hynes.
We were prepared to play four or five
if we had to, but mentally and physi-
cally its nice to be able to finish it and
go into a bit of rest and recovery.
Thursdays game presented plenty of
questions right off the bat when Thies-
sen was the first Penguin to skate onto
the ice for warmups. Head coach John
Hynes said the team was monitoring
Zatkoffs status since late Wednesday
night and the decision to start Thies-
sen wasnt made until 2 p.m. before the
start of the game. Zatkoff is day-to-day,
Hynes said.
With a new face in net, the Penguins
found their struggles at the other end
of the ice early on.
Binghamton jumped out to a 1-0 lead
five minutes into the first period when
Mark Stone picked off a Joey Mormina
outlet pass and zipped it over to Matt
Puempel in the slot, who fired the
puck past Thiessen.
The lead held well into the third pe-
riod as both teams exchanged a hand-
ful of scoring chances. The Penguins

The Philadelphia Phillies Ryan Howard (6) and Domonic Brown celebrate after Howard hit a solo
home run against the Miami Marlins in the fourth inning on Thursday in Philadelphia.
Kendrick tosses 7 strong
as Phillies beat Marlins
PHILADELPHIA Ryan
Howard and Domonic Brown
hit solo homers to back Kyle
Kendrick and the Philadelphia
Phillies beat the Miami Marlins
7-2 Thursday night.
Kendrick (3-1) allowed two
runs and seven hits in seven in-
nings to earn his ninth straight
win against the Marlins, dating
to May 28, 2010.
Justin Ruggiano hit a solo
shot for Miami. Alex Sanabia
(2-4) gave up four runs two
earned and six hits in five
innings.
Kendrick followed up a three-
hitter against the New York
Mets with his fifth consecutive
solid start. Hes outpitched
Philadelphias three aces
Cole Hamels, Roy Halladay
and Cliff Lee so far. While they
have three Cy Young Awards,
a World Series MVP Award
and 14 All-Star appearances on
their resumes, Kendrick has
never won more than 11 games
in a season.
But Kendrick has a 2.43 ERA
this season and the Phillies are
4-2 in his starts. Hamels, Hal-
laday and Lee are a combined
5-8 with a 4.85 ERA, and the
Phillies are 5-13 in their starts.
Kendrick is quite a bargain,
too. Hes making $4.5 million
this year. Hamels, Halladay and
Lee will earn a total of $64.5
million.
Howard gave the Phillies a
2-1 lead in the fourth when he
hit a towering, opposite-field
drive that just cleared the left
field wall. That temporarily
gave him more homers (four)
than walks (three). He then got
an intentional pass in the fifth
and drew another walk in the
eighth, his first multiwalk game
since Sept. 1 against Atlanta.
Brown lined a shot over the
right field fence to tie it at 1
in the second. He had an RBI
single in the eighth and fin-
ished 3 for 4, his fifth multihit
game in the last eight. Hes 12
for 31 with two homers and
seven RBIs in that span.
A pair of unearned runs in
the fifth helped the Phillies take
a 4-1 lead. Chase Utley drove
in a run with a sacrifice fly
and Jimmy Rollins scored on a
passed ball after reaching on a
fielding error by second base-
man Donovan Solano.
Juan Pierre walked to start
the game and went to second
on Solanos single. Pierre
swiped third base for his 600th
career steal and scored when
Placido Polanco grounded into
a double play.
Ruggiano hit one out to
straightaway center leading off
the sixth, cutting the deficit to
4-2.
Nationals 3, Braves 1
ATLANTA Dan Haren
pitched eight sharp innings, De-
nard Span hit a two-run double
and the Washington Nationals
beat the Atlanta Braves.
The Nationals, who snapped
a nine-game losing streak to
Atlanta on Wednesday, allowed
their NL East rivals to get only
three runners in scoring posi-
tion over two nights.
Haren (3-3) won his second
consecutive start, giving up
four hits and one run with one
walk and four strikeouts.
Rafael Soriano earned his
ninth save in 10 chances by
pitching the ninth. He retired
Justin Upton and Freddie
Freeman on groundouts before
Evan Gattis singled and Dan
Uggla popped up.
Padres 4, Cubs 2
CHICAGO Yonder Alon-
sos two-out fly ball to right
field dropped in front of Julio
Borbon for an RBI single that
led to a four-run eighth inning
and boosted the San Diego
Padres over the Chicago Cubs
for a four-game series split.
Travis Wood (2-2) retired
his first 14 batters before Kyle
Blanks singled, and he led 2-0
when Jesus Guzman reached
on an infield single leading
off the eighth. Blanks walked,
Jedd Gyorko flied out and Nick
Hundley fouled out.
Alonso, pinch hitting for Joe
Thatcher, lofted a ball to right
on the windy afternoon. Second
baseman Darwin Barney back-
pedaled and Borbon sprinted
in. Borbon called for the ball,
Barney peeled off, and the ball
fell just in front of Borbons
outstretched glove as Guzman
scored.
Red Sox 3, Blue Jays 1
TORONTO Ryan Demp-
ster won his second straight
start and the Boston Red Sox
took advantage of a season-high
10 walks to beat the Toronto
Blue Jays.
Dempster (2-2) allowed one
run and four hits in six innings.
The right-hander, who walked
three and struck out four,
retired 10 of the final 11 batters
he faced.
Winless in his first four starts
this season, Dempster posted
his first victory by beating
Houston a week ago.
Andrew Miller got two
outs in seventh and Junichi
Tazawa got the third. Koji
Uehara pitched the eighth and
Joel Hanrahan finished for his
fourth save in five chances.
Boston improved its major
league-best road record to 9-3
and won its seventh series in
nine tries this season.
The Red Sox have won eight
of 10 and are 20-8 overall, their
best start since opening 20-7 in
2002.
Brett Lawrie homered and
Colby Rasmus had three hits
but the last-place Blue Jays lost
for the 12th time in 16 games.
Toronto dropped to 4-12
against AL East opponents.
Lawrie connected leading off
the bottom of the first, his third
homer of the season and the
third leadoff shot of his career.
Boston took the lead with a
two-run second. Mike Napoli
doubled and scored on Mike
Carps single to right, and
Stephen Drew drove in Will
Middlebrooks with a sacrifice
fly.
Blue Jays left-hander J.A.
Happ allowed two runs and
three hits in 3 2-3 innings, his
shortest start of the season.
Happ (2-2) matched a career
high with seven walks and
struck out two.
David Ross drew a leadoff
walk from reliever Brad Lincoln
in the sixth and moved to
second on a wild pitch. Steve
Delabar replaced Lincoln but
allowed an RBI single to Jacoby
Ellsbury.
Toronto loaded the bases in
the seventh but Tazawa struck
out Adam Lind to end the
threat.
Cardinals 6, Brewers 5
MILWAUKEE Jake West-
brook allowed one run over
six innings for his 100th career
win and the St. Louis Cardinals
held off the Milwaukee Brew-
ers.
Westbrook (2-1), came in
with a 0.98 ERA, best in the
majors it increased to 1.10.
In his 12th season, he walked
three and struck out four. The
Brewers were 1 for 8 with run-
ners in scoring position against
him.
Westbrook allowed Norichika
Aokis double to open the game
and then nothing more until
one out in the fourth when the
Brewers pushed across a run on
three consecutive singles. He
struck out Alex Gonzalez and
then fanned Wily Peralta (2-2),
his third strikeout of the inning.
Westbrook left with a 6-1
lead for the relievers to protect,
but the Brewers scored twice in
the seventh, one in the eighth
and one in the ninth.
White Sox 3, Rangers 1
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Hec-
tor Santiago allowed two in
five-plus innings filling in for
Jake Peavy, Tyler Flowers hit
a three-run homer and the
Chicago White Sox beat Texa,
handing the Rangers their first
series loss of the season.
Flowers drive just inside the
foul pole in left field was the
third straight hit after Texas
right-hander Justin Grimm
(2-1) retired 10 in a row on the
day he was named AL rookie of
the month.
Adrian Beltres homer in
the second was the only hit
through five innings against
Santiago (1-1), who had six
strikeouts and two walks in 5
1-3 innings. The left-hander
made his first start of the sea-
son and fifth of his career after
Peavy was scratched because of
back spasms.
Addison Reed pitched
around two of Chicagos eight
walks, striking out the side in
the ninth for his 10th save and
second in two nights.
The coldest May game at
Rangers Ballpark came just
three weeks after the coldest
day game there -- and the Rang-
ers lost both.
The game-time temperature
of 44 was 37 degrees cooler
than the previous night. It was
a 40-degree difference on April
10, when the temperature at
first pitch was 39 degrees for
2-0 loss to Tampa Bay in a day
game after it had been 79 the
night before.

Van Rose Memorial
at Pocono Downs
LAWRENCEVILLE, GA.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barres Brett
Marshall threw seven scores in-
nings and Addison Maruszaks
two-run double in the seventh
broke open a scoreless game that
eventually became a 4-1 victory
for the RailRiders over the Gwin-
net Braves on Thursday night.
The RailRiders have now won
five consecutive games to run
their record to 14-11.
Marshall (1-2) faced the mini-
mumin four of his seven innings,
and forced Gwinnett into three
groundball double plays. He al-
lowed just five hits, walked three
and struck out two. Cody Eppley
came on in relief and recorded
his second save of the season.
Gwinnett starter Sean Gilmar-
tin had a no-hitter going into the
seventh, but Melky Mesa erased
that with a lead-off single. Zoilo
Almonte followed with a base hit
to left field, moving Mesa to sec-
ond. Mesa advanced to third on a
groundout by Dan Johnson and,
after a walk to SWB newcomer
Ronnier Mustelier, Maruszak
drove a double into left-center
field, scoring Mesa from third
and Mustelier from first. Luke
Murtons single to left scored
Maruszak to cap off the inning
and stake SWB to a 3-0 lead.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre added
an insurance run in the eighth
when David Adams reached
on a fielders choice and Mesa
launched a triple over the head
of center fielder Todd Cunning-
ham.
Gwinnett ended the RailRider
shutout in the eighth courtesy
of an RBI single from Brian Mc-
Cann. McCann went 1-of-4 in his
first game of 2013 with Gwinnet
as part of a rebah stint.
Gilmartin (2-1) ended up toss-
ing 6 2/3 innings in the falling
effort and allowed three earned
runs.
The RailRiders are in the
midst of a nine-day, eight-game
road trip before returning home
for an eight-game home stand on
Monday. It starts with the first
of four against the Indianapolis
Indians (Pittsburgh Pirates) at
6:35 p.m.

Ovechkin helps lead Capitals past Rangers in Game 1
WASHINGTON Alex
Ovechkins franchise-record
31st career playoff goal got the
Capitals started before less-
heralded teammates Marcus
Johansson and Jason Chimera
scored 46 seconds apart, and
Washington beat the New York
Rangers 3-1 Thursday night
in Game 1 of their first-round
series.
Ovechkin, a two-time MVP
who led the NHL with 32 goals
this season, crashed the net to
score on a power play about
seven minutes into the second
period to tie the game for the
Capitals, the third-seeded team
in the Eastern Conference.
Carl Hagelin had put sixth-
seeded New York ahead 1-0
in the first period -- the only
puck that made it past Braden
Holtby, who finished with 35
saves.
Game 2 of the best-of-seven
series is Saturday in Washing-
ton.

MONTREAL Craig
Anderson made 48 saves in a
spectacular goaltending perfor-
mance as the Ottawa Senators
beat the Montreal Canadiens in
Game 1 of their playoff series.
Jakob Silfverberg and Marc
Methot scored early in the third
period and gave Ottawa a 1-0
lead in the best-of-seven series,
with Game 2 set for Friday
night at the Bell Centre.
Erik Karlsson and Guillaume
Latendresse also scored for the
Senators, who were outshot
50-31 but saw Anderson easily
win the goaltending duel with
Carey Price, who was beaten
twice through the pads.
Rene Bourque and Brendan
Gallagher replied for Montreal.
The Associated Press
riod, outshooting Binghamton
14-7, but were unable to get any-
thing past goaltender Nathan
Lawson.
It wasnt until nearly midway
through the third period before
they would solve Lawson, and
they did it shorthanded.
The play started when Jay-
son Megna gained the puck and
rushed up ice with Zach Sill on
a two-on-one. Sill reached out
and got enough of his blade on
Megnas pass to loft the puck
over Lawson into the top corner
to even things up 1-1.
The goal provided a huge mo-
mentum boost for the Penguins
as did Sills celebration as he
jumped against the glass.
The celebration went a little
bit overboard, Sill said. It was
pure excitement and emotion
that I couldnt really control. We
were fighting for a goal all game
up until then and just werent
getting it.
After that, the goals got even
bigger. With the Penguins on a
power play with less than two
minutes to play, Trevor Smith
sent a backdoor pass out in front
that Holzapfel one-timed into an
empty net.
Smitty made a great pass and
it was easy to put it in there,
Holzapfel said of the goal, which
is the second of his postseason
career. I havent had too much
success in the playoffs in my ca-
reer, so to get that one and keep
the team moving on is a great
feeling.
Megna added an empty net
goal that seemed to seal the win
with 28 seconds left, but Bing-
hamton did manage to score
with two seconds on the clock.
The team will be off today
and resume practice on Sunday.
Theyll also watch the scores
over the next few days to see
who they will face next.
Well enjoy this for a couple
nights and Im not sure well be
starting (the next series) for a
little bit, so its nice, Holzap-
fel said. Binghamton played
great tonight and all series, and
they were a desperate team that
wanted that win tonight.

A layup by Nazr Mohammed
cut the Nets lead to 93-92 with
25.2 seconds remaining.
Nate Robinson then fouled An-
dray Blatche, who had missed a
free throw only moments earlier.
This time, he hit both to make it
a three-point game with 19.2 sec-
onds left.
The Bulls had a chance to tie
it, but Marco Belinelli missed
a 3-pointer and Joakim Noah
stepped out of bounds with
about six seconds left.
Chicago still had a chance,
though.
Noah tied up Williams after
the inbounds, resulting in a jump
ball with 3.6 seconds left.
Johnson controlled the ball,
and the Nets hung on.
Gerald Wallace added 15
points as Brooklyn won its sec-
ond straight.
Only eight NBA teams have
come back from a 3-1 deficit to
win a best-of-7 series, but the
Nets are in position to do just
that.

Poll finds widespread support for Redskins name
WASHINGTON Its been
a rough offseason for the Wash-
ington Redskins, and not just be-
cause of the knee injury to star
quarterback Robert Griffin III.
The teams nickname, which
some consider a derogatory term
for Native Americans, has faced
a barrage of criticism. Local
leaders and pundits have called
for a name change. Opponents
have launched a legal challenge
intended to deny the team fed-
eral trademark protection. A bill
introduced in Congress in March
would do the same, though it ap-
pears unlikely to pass.
But a new Associated Press-
GfK poll shows that nationally,
Redskins still enjoys wide-
spread support. Nearly four in
five Americans dont think the
team should change its name,
the survey found. Only 11 per-
cent think it should be changed,
while 8 percent werent sure and
2 percent didnt answer.
Although 79 percent favor
keeping the name, that does
represent a 10 percentage point
drop from the last national poll
on the subject, conducted in
1992 by The Washington Post
and ABC News just before the
team won its most recent Super
Bowl. Then, 89 percent said the
name should not be changed,
and 7 percent said it should.
The AP-GfK poll was conduct-
ed from April 11-15 and included
interviews with 1,004 adults on
both land lines and cell phones.
It has a margin of sampling error
of plus or minus 3.9 percentage
points.
Several poll respondents told
The AP that they did not con-
sider the name offensive and
cited tradition in arguing that it
shouldnt change.
Thats who theyve been for-
ever. Thats who theyre known
as, said Sarah Lee, a 36-year-old
stay-at-home momfromOsceola,
Ind. I think we as a people make
race out to be a bigger issue than
it is.
But those who think the name
should be changed say the word
is obviously derogatory.
With everything that Native
Americans have gone through
in this country, to have a sports
team named the Redskins
come on, now. Its bad, said
Pamela Rogal, 56, a writer from
Boston. Much farther down the
road, were going to look back on
this and say, Are you serious?
Did they really call them the
Washington Redskins? Its a no-
brainer.
Among football fans, 11 per-
cent said the name should be
changed the same as among
non-fans. Among nonwhite
football fans, 18 percent said it
should change, about double the
percentage of white football fans
who oppose the name.
In Washington, debate over
the name has increased in recent
months. In February, the Nation-
al Museum of the American In-
dian held a daylong symposium
on the use of Indian mascots by
sports teams. Museum Director
Kevin Gover, of the Pawnee Na-
tion, said the word redskin was
the equivalent of the n-word.
District of Columbia Mayor
Vincent Gray, a Democrat, sug-
gested that the team would have
to consider changing the name
if it wanted to play its home
games in the city again. Del-
egate Eleanor Holmes Norton,
a Democrat who represents the
district in Congress, said shes a
fan of the team but avoids say-
ing Redskins. Just this week,
a D.C. councilmember intro-
duced a resolution calling for a
name change, and it appears to
have enough support to pass, al-
though the council has no power
over the team.
We need to get rid of it, said
longtime local news anchor Jim
Vance in a commentary that
aired in February.
Vance, of WRC-TV, revealed
that he has avoided using the
name on the air for the past few
years.
Other media outlets have
done the same. The Washing-
ton City Paper substitutes the
name Pigskins, and DCist.
com announced in February that
it would avoid using the name
in print. The Kansas City Star
also has a policy against printing
Redskins.

McIlroy opens with 67,
ties for Wells Fargo lead
CHARLOTTE, N.C. For all
the talk about the greens, Rory
McIlroys most important club
was his driver Thursday in the
Wells Fargo Championship.
McIlroy kept the ball in play
at Quail Hollow and gave him-
self plenty of birdie chances on
a cloudy, soft afternoon. He ran
off six birdies in a seven-hole
stretch around the turn and fin-
ished with an 8-foot birdie putt
for a 5-under 67 to share the
lead with six other players.
It was the first time this year
McIlroy has been atop the lead-
erboard after any round, and the
first time he broke par in the
opening round.
Now that I feel like Im
swinging it well, this is the sort
of golf I expect to play, McIlroy
said.
Nick Watney, Ryan Moore,
Robert Garrigus and PGA Tour
rookie Derek Ernst shot 67 in
the morning. Daniel Summer-
hays and Nate Smith, a Monday
qualifier, joined McIlroy by post-
ing their 67s in the afternoon.
Phil Mickelson and Lucas
Glover were in a large group at
68, with 19-year-old Jordan Spi-
eth in another big group at 69.
The talk going into the Wells
Fargo Championship was the
shape of the greens. Two of
the putting surfaces had to be
entirely replaced by sod just
a week ago the 10th green
had to be sodded twice and
the other greens were ragged.
Some had ugly patches of brown
where there was no grass.
But they werent as bad as
players feared, and there wasnt
much public grumbling, mainly
because Quail Hollow has a his-
tory of being in pristine shape
and players seemed willing to
accept this is an exceptionally
bad year.
It was fine, Boo Weekley
said after his 68. First off, they
were pretty smooth. It aint 100
percent, but I mean theyre good
enough to play golf on.
The bigger problem was
cool, soft conditions that made
Quail Hollow seem longer than
usual. Thats why McIlroy was
so pleased with missing only
three fairways. The greens
werent smooth, but they were
soft enough that getting into
position off the tee was pivotal
in setting up birdie chances.
Theyre not the best greens
that weve ever putted on, but
theyre certainly not the worst,
either, McIlroy said. The ball
still rolls pretty well on them.
As long as you give yourself
chances for birdies, thats all
you can ask. If you drive the
ball well, you can really take
advantage of that. And for the
most part today, I did drive the
ball well.
McIlroy got into the mix
quickly with four straight bird-
ies two of them on the par
5s, a 7-iron to 3 feet on the par-3
sixth hole, and a big drive on
the short, par-4 eighth that left
him a flip wedge into about 3
feet. A tee shot that found the
rough on the ninth led to bogey,
but the worlds No. 2 player
bounced back with an up-and-
down birdie on the par-5 10th
and an approach into 8 feet on
the 11th for another birdie.
His biggest scare came on
the 18th, when McIlroy looked
nervously down the left side of
the fairway as the ball flirted
with the winding creek, barely
clearing the water. From there,
he hit 8-iron that stopped close
to where it landed, and he made
an 8-foot putt that bounced
more than it rolled.
Kingsmill Championship
WILLIAMSBURG, Va.
Thai teen Ariya Jutanugarn shot
a 7-under 64 to take a two-
stroke lead after the first round
of the LPGA Tours Kingsmill
Championship.
The 17-year-old Jutanugarn
was 8 under through 16 holes,
but pulled her drive and had a
double bogey on the par-3 17th
before rebounding with her
ninth birdie of the day on the
par-4 finishing hole.
Cristie Kerr, the only-two
time winner in the tours eight
previous visits to the River
Course, had six birdies and one
bogey in a 66 that put her alone
in second place.
So Yeon Ryu and Dewi Claire
Schreefel shot 67, and a huge
logjam at 68 included top-
ranked Inbee Park, No. 2 Stacy
Lewis and former Kingsmill
winner Suzann Pettersen.
China Open
TIANJIN, China Dutch-
man Robert-Jan Derksen shot
a 6-under 66 to take the first-
round lead in the China Open,
while 12-year-old Ye Wocheng
opened with a 79 at Binhai
Lake.
At 12 years, 242 days, Ye
became the youngest player
in European Tour history. He
broke Guan Tianlangs mark of
13 years, 177 days set last year
in the event.
Guan made history last
month when he became the
youngest to play in the Masters
at 14. Defending champion
Branden Grace of South Africa
had a 74.

tralias Scott Hend and South

Rory McIlroy, of Northern Ire-
land, chips to the ninth green
during the first round of the
Wells Fargo Championship at
Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte,
N.C., on Thursday.
6,600. The 2012-13 season at
Rec Hall was sold out for the
first time in school history be-
fore a meet was even held this
past season.
The Bryce Jordan Center can
hold more than 15,000 fans.
That doesnt mean though that
Sanderson is jumping at the idea
of moving every home meet to
the BJC, especially with tickets
costing just $6 at Rec Hall. But
there is progress on the possibil-
ity of wrestling being held there.
One thing we always kind of
thought about as a staff is break-
ing the attendance record which
is about 16,000, Sanderson
said. But yeah wed like to do
that.
Another topic the four-time
NCAA champion wrestler is
stern about is his beloved sport
possibly being removed from
the 2020 Olympics. Earlier this
year, the IOC recommended
that the sport be removed from
the games. Later this month,
May 24-27, the IOC will meet in
St. Petersburg, Russia, to decide
which three sports will be nar-
rowed down to be included on
that years Olympic program.
A final vote will be held in Sep-
tember. Sanderson, who won an
Olympic gold in 2004, has been
one of the top supporters in
helping make sure the sport re-
mains. One of the several items
hes done to help the sport sur-
vive the latest obstacle is post
addresses of IOC members on
his website, encouraging fans to
flood them with letters of sup-
port.
He said no matter where he
goes, especially during the cara-
van tour, he gets approached
endlessly about the sports sur-
vival in this tough time.
Support is definitely growing
and its getting down to crunch
time here, he added. Theres
a lot of support out there for
wrestling it just has to come to-
gether and make sure the voice
is heard.

Texas in 2009 at the Alamo-
dome in San Antonio before go-
ing to Yankee Stadium and the
home of a Cowboys rival, the
Washington Redskins.
Last year, the Irish played
Miami in Chicago, a huge re-
cruiting hub for them, and now
theyre coming to the stadium
that always has players and
coaches looking skyward for re-
plays on the giant video board
that hangs over the field.
Just 4 years old, Cowboys
Stadium has already hosted a
Super Bowl and an NBA All-Star
game, and gets the Final Four
next year.
Theres no question that
when you talk about playing
here at Cowboys Stadium, that
gets every recruits attention,
Kelly said. They knowthat ven-
ue. They want to play here. And
with it being announced that its
the destination for the first na-
tional championship game, all
eyes are on this geographic area,
in particular this venue.
Alabama started its second
straight championship season
and third in the past four
with a 41-14 victory against
Michigan at Cowboys Stadium
last year. The Crimson Tide lost
to Texas A&M and went into
the BCS game ranked second to
Notre Dame before blowing out
the Irish 42-14.
The four-team playoff will
have a rotating system of semi-
final sites with existing bowls
including the Cotton Bowl,
which is played at Cowboys Sta-
dium. The championship game
is open to bidding every year,
and Cowboys Stadium edged
Raymond James Stadium in
Tampa, Fla., for the title game
on Jan. 12, 2015.
The next question for Kelly is
whether or maybe when
the playoff field expands.
I like where were starting,
Kelly said. I think the focus is
going to be on the format and
the format being the four teams
playing it off and getting to a
championship game. I think
thats going to be the focus and
moving forward, it will be on
whether its eight (teams), 16,
whatever the number is.
After leading the Irish to the
BCS title game, Kelly has seen it
all when it comes to the postsea-
son. He won consecutive Divi-
sion II national championships
in a 16-team playoff at Grand
Valley State. He was denied a
chance to play for the BCS title
with unbeaten Cincinnati in
2009. He waited more than a
month to play Alabama, and the
Irish promptly fell behind 28-0
before halftime.
Ive played every week, and
Ive had 42 days off, Kelly said.
I do not like 42 days off. Our
football team didnt like 42 days
off. Now, Alabama played very
well in the national champion-
ship game. We needed to play
the next week. If there is a break
of seven to 10 days, thats fine.
Thats almost exactly what
it will be when the title game
comes to Cowboys Stadium.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. Notre
Dame unveiled a plan Thursday
to add buildings and more than
3,000 revenue-producing pre-
mium seats in and around Notre
Dame Stadium in a push to
make that area of campus more
of a community hub.
The stadium that opened in
1930 and was expanded in 1997
is used fewer than 10 times a
year for football games, com-
mencement and recreational
events. The idea is to use the
stadium as a centerpiece where
academics, athletics, students
social lives and the surrounding
community come together.
Well take our most iconic
athletic venue and reimagine it
as the site of year-round univer-
sity use, not five-day-a-year ath-
letic use, athletic director Jack
Swarbrick said.
The first step is to see if space
in and around The House that
Rockne Built can be better uti-
lized. The proposal would add
more than 3,000 seats in new
buildings that would rise up
over the sides of the stadium
and include classrooms, a media
center, student center and com-
munity center.
The proposal would solve a
challenge facing the universitys
academic side: Finding space in
a central area on a campus. It
would also help the athletic de-
partment raise money through
premium seating and by hold-
ing other events at the stadium,
such as concerts and possibly an
event such as the NHLs Winter
Classic, Swarbrick said.
Were in a business where
we have to generate some ad-
ditional revenue out of that sta-
dium to support the program,
Swarbrick said. Long-term
premium seating plays a role in
that.
Under the proposal, buildings
running parallel to the sidelines
would rise about three stories
above the stadium, providing
premium club-style seating that
would include areas where fans
could sit and eat. Swarbrick said
corporate sponsors and other
groups had expressed interest
in having areas they could have
during game days.
We have a critical lack of
that, he said.
The plan would increase seat-
ing to about 84,000, up from
the present 80,795, although
Swarbrick said he doesnt know
how accurate that estimate is.
The plan also calls for the press
box to be moved to the other
side of the field and the oppo-
nents locker room to be moved
to the other end of the stadium,
meaning they would no longer
use the tunnel where Notre
Dame enters.
Although some Notre Dame
alumni have opposed changes
to Notre Dame Stadium, such as
talk of adding video scoreboards
or artificial turf, Swarbrick said
he has been encouraged by
the response hes received so
far from those who have seen
the proposal. He also said peo-
ple should keep in mind that
Rockne, who was involved in
designing the building, didnt
build a traditional stadium.
He built a state-of-the-art
stadium. We want to keep every-
thing about that building, but
embrace that original vision,
Swarbrick said.
He said construction wouldnt
impact the existing bowl.
Thats the essence of the
iconic venue, and we want to
protect that, he said.
Swarbrick said university of-
ficials had looked at what had
been done at other high-profile
facilities, such as Fenway Park,
Lambeau Field, Wrigley Field,
the stadiums at Michigan and
Ohio State, and the Rose Bowl.
An artists rendering of the
plan appeared to show two black
scoreboards on the west side
of the stadium. Swarbrick was
asked if those were video boards.
Absolutely no decision made
on video boards, Swarbrick
said, saying the two scoreboards
shown on the west end zone
were put off to the sides so they
wouldnt block the view of the
Hesburgh Library, which has the
mural widely known as Touch-
down Jesus.
The rendering also shows the
stadium connecting to the Joyce
Center, which would allow fans
to go inside during bad weather.
The building on the stadiums
east side would be a media cen-
ter. Executive vice president
John Affleck-Graves said it
would likely be one of the most
widely used buildings on cam-
pus.

its hard to bet against him.
Obviously, were rooting for
Goldencents, but the Derby is
something that you never know
how it will evolve, Pitino said.
If we dont win it, Id like to see
someone like (trainer) Shug Mc-
Gaughey win it. Hes never won
the Derby, hes a great trainer
and a friend of mine. Id like to
see a Goldencents-Orb exacta,
that would be awesome.
Its anybodys ball game.
Its not like basketball, where
you can look at a team and say
theyve got a little bit more fire-
power. You just dont know in
the Derby because you dont
knowwhos going to get into rac-
ing trouble.
Perhaps, but Pitino is an ac-
tive participant in thoroughbred
racings crown jewel because
Goldencents overcame adversity
to win last months Santa Anita
Derby and earn his way into the
139th Run for the Roses.
After moving outside to surge
past pacesetter Super Ninety
Nine on the final turn, the brown
colt held off Flashback for a one-
length victory that came just
hours before Louisville rallied
past Wichita State 72-68 in a na-
tional semifinal in Atlanta. Gol-
dencents instantly became part
of a phenomenal roll for Pitino,
the school and the city, boost-
ing local rooting interest for the
Derby.
Two days later, Pitino was
elected to the Naismith Memo-
rial Hall of Fame and the Cardi-
nals went on to beat Michigan
82-76 for their first national
championship since 1986. Louis-
villes womens team reached the
NCAA final before their amazing
run ended with a blowout loss to
Connecticut.
Euphoria remains evident
nearly a month later with Gold-
encents T-shirts joining the sea
of Cardinals red championship
gear. Many are hoping the kar-
ma is just as strong on Saturday
when the horse battles morning
line favorite Orb (7-2) and un-
beaten Verrazano (4-1), the sec-
ond choice.
Coach has been on a tremen-
dous run, and we just keep think-
ing that its going to continue,
said Goldencents trainer Doug
ONeill, seeking his second
consecutive Derby win follow-
ing Ill Have Anothers last May.
Watching him win that champi-
onship, especially after the inju-
ry to (guard) Kevin (Ware), has
been very inspirational for all of
us and were all feeling it. Hope-
fully, we can keep the roll going.
However, the possibility of
winning the Derby has the
60-year-old Pitino wondering if
the odds have been too good to
him. Asked last week what hed
do if Goldencents won the Der-
by, the coach joked, Id be walk-
ing around looking for lightning
to hit me.
Figuratively speaking, Pitinos
racing associates want to make
sure that happens.
Nobody seems to have a big
problem with Pitino getting the
attention this week despite his
small stake in Goldencents, co-
owned by Josh Kaplan, Glen
Sorgenstein and Dave Kenney.
At the very least, Pitino has cre-
ated a buzz around Barn 45 that
might otherwise be missing
though Kevin Kriggers quest to
become the first African-Amer-
ican jockey to win the Derby
since 1902 is another interesting
subplot.
DERBY
Continued from Page 1B
LOUISVILLE, Ky.
Propped up inside jockey Kev-
in Kriggers locker at Churchill
Downs is a photo dating back
more than a century. Staring
back at him is Jimmy Wink-
field, the last black jockey to
win the Kentucky Derby.
Its easy to assume the bond
between the two men is about
color. And thats true, but only
to a point.
On Saturday, Krigger will
be aboard Goldencents, the
third-choice at 5-1, and could
become the first African-Amer-
ican rider to win the worlds
biggest horse race since
Winkfield won back-to-back, in
1901-02. And either way, hell
be the first just to attempt the
feat since Marlon St. Julien fin-
ished seventh aboard Curule
in 2000.
Krigger wound up in pos-
session of the photo after
taping an interview for a
documentary. What spoke to
him personally wasnt the long
and troubling history of black
jockeys that began soon after
the picture was taken, but
something in the fierce pose
that Winkfield struck.
The look in his eyes, Krig-
ger recalled, was telling me,
Youre going to do it.
The 29-year-old makes
it clear that the cause hes
most interested in is his own.
That was apparent, even at
the tender age of 5, when he
pulled his horse alongside the
family car so he could clamber
onto the roof and hop onto the
horses back. It was all part of
his grand plan: Not Im going
to be the first African-Ameri-
can to win the Kentucky Derby
in 100-something years. Just,
Im going to win the Kentucky
Derby.
Albert Krigger smiles when
he hears those words now.
But it wasnt always easy back
in St. Croix, part of the U.S.
Virgin Islands, when he tried
to reign in his headstrong son.
More than once, the principal
called to let Dad know his son
was absent from school. He
would leave work and head
to the remote corners of the
island, where hed find his son
riding or racing.
Id give him money for
schoolbooks and clothes and
hed use it to buy medicine or
bandages for the horse. When
he was 15 or 16, I gave up,
the father recalled. I finally
said to my wife, Hes going to
ride anyway. You can deal with
that stuff now. Maybe youll
have more luck.
By then, it was already
too late. Krigger had a horse
named Dandella, whom he ran
in match races over quarter-
and half-mile flat strips. Over
the course of 100 races, he fig-
ures he lost no more than four.
He started training alongside
fellow islander Julio Felix and
by 17, decided to follow him
to the States.
Krigger rises early I
never yet saw a horse in bed,
he likes to say. He has a work
ethic second to none and the
kind of confidence thats hard
to shake. Yet he had no idea
how tough the road was about
to become.
First, at Thistledown outside
Cleveland, and then during a
largely frustrating few years
on the Southern California
circuit, most of the riders Krig-
ger found himself up against
were more experienced and
much more ruthless. The
jockey culture, especially at
the higher levels of the sport,
was distinctly Latin.
Even today, they are only
about four dozen African-
Americans among the 1,000 or
so active riders in The Jockeys
Guild. Back in the day, though,
they dominated at Churchill
Downs. Thirteen of the 15 rid-
ers in the first Derby in 1875
were black; they won 15 times
among the first 28. But their
fame and fortune was soon
choked off by jealousy and Jim
Crow laws, and soon after the
turn of the last century, black
jockeys practically disap-
peared.
Krigger believes it wasnt
his color that held him back,
but the quality of his mounts.
After a successful stint at
Emerald Downs outside Se-
attle, he returned to Southern
California with something to
prove. All those early morn-
ings hustling at the racetrack
to find a ride finally began to
pay off when he landed a few
belonging to trainer Doug
ONeill, whose own break-
through came last season
when he won the Derby with
Ill Have Another.
Last September, after letting
Krigger work Goldencents,
ONeill lobbied to keep him
in the saddle for the bay colts
maiden run. It was no small
favor, but ONeill has done it
before. Last year, relatively
unknown jockey Mario Gutier-
rez delivered for ONeill in the
Derby. Kriggers payback so
far came with a victory in the
Santa Anita Derby, one of the
most important prep races.
He worked Goldencents
maybe six weeks or so before
his debut, and he got off him,
and in his best U.S. Virgin ac-
cent just said, Wow, man, this
horse can really run, ONeill
recalled. So I had Kevin and
Tom (Knust, his agent) start
planting the seeds to the own-
ers. They fell in love with him
right away, too.
One of the colts owners was
Rick Pitino, whose Louisville
Cardinals won the college
basketball title last month.
Hes a cool guy, Krig-
ger said with a laugh. What
I liked was watching him
yesterday, standing off to the
side while somebody else was
being interviewed. Once every-
body saw it was him, he just
walked right over, cool as can
be, with this look on his face
like, Lets get it on! I like that
kind of confidence.
Replying to the inevitable
question about whether he
played basketball, Krigger said
he did, a little, but Im not
going to brag about it.
Most of the boasting is
reserved for Goldencents,
anyway.
Ive been confident since
the first day I got on this horse
that he was going to be in the
Kentucky Derby, he said.
The truth is Kriggers ambi-
tions dont end there, either.
That picture, he said,
referring to the photo of
Winkfield, is going to take the
whole Triple Crown journey
with me.

OPI NI ON
By JIMLITKE
AP Sports Columnist LOUISVILLE, Ky. Trainer
Rudy Rodriguez placed his
trust in jockey Garrett Gomez
after Vyjack landed post No.
20, the far outside spot in the
starting gate for the Kentucky
Derby.
Some trainers would map
out elaborate schemes to
compensate for the poor draw.
Rodriguez, a former jockey
and Vyjacks morning exercise
rider, knows the best-laid plans
are scrambled the moment the
gate springs open on Saturday.
Rodriguez will put the race
in the hands of Gomez, the
nations leading rider from
2006-08. Gomez is winless in
nine Derby mounts.
Hes a big boy, hes been in
the big races. Its up to him,
Rodriguez said. The Derby is
so hard, everything has to go
perfect. When you break from
the gate, its a different game.
Rodriguez was aboard
Thursday morning for Vyjacks
final pre-Derby workout, three
furlongs in a moderate 37
seconds.
He went the way I expected
him to go, Rodriguez said. It
was easy, comfortable. It was
what I was looking for. We just
opened his lungs a little bit.
Vyjack, 15-1 on the Derby
morning line, won his first four
races, including the Jerome
and the Gotham stakes at
Aqueduct. His lone defeat
came in the Wood Memorial, a
one-length loss to undefeated
Verrazano.
We just let him tell me
when hes ready, Rodriguez
said.
The way he is right now is
what got us here. I dont have
to change anything.
RUN OFF: While everything
went smoothly for Vyjack, a
headstrong Normandy Inva-
sion ran off during his gallop.
After a visit to the starting
gate, Normandy Invasion, a
12-1 shot in the Derby, went
comfortably through the lane
before accelerating around the
clubhouse turn. He unexpect-
edly hit top gear down the
backstretch as the exercise
rider struggled for control. He
was finally brought to a halt
with the help of an outrider.
Normandy Invasion was
clearly feeling his oats.
Thats him, trainer Chad
Brown said. Hes really sharp
right now.
LONESOME: While the
other Derby horses have
been acclimating at Churchill
Downs, Lines of Battle re-
mained isolated in quarantine
following a 14-hour trip from
Ireland.
T.J. Comerford, assistant
to trainer Aidan OBrien, said
the colt has settled in nicely
since arriving Wednesday.
He is scheduled to gallop on
Friday following his quarantine
release. Until then, the colt can
only walk around the fenced-
off barn.
Were used to traveling
our horses, Comerford said.
Theres not a problem. Hes
100 percent.
Lines of Battle earned his
way here with a victory in the
UAE Derby on March 30. He
is 30-1 on Saturdays morning
line.
This will be OBriens fifth
starter in the Derby, a race
in which he hasnt had much
success. Last years runner,
Master of Hounds, was pulled
up and did not finish.
Aidan would like to win it
because its a major race, one
of the biggest races, Comer-
ford said. Its not easy. Weve
come out here more than
most, and weve tried. God
loves a trier.
OBrien will not make the
trip. He will be at Newmar-
ket in England on Saturday
to saddle three horses in the
famed 2,000 Guineas.

BUSINESS
SECTI ON B
IN BRIEF
Prots send stocks higher
Encouraging news about the job
market and higher prots from CBS,
Facebook and other companies sent
stock prices higher on Wall Street.
The Dow Jones industrial average
rose 130 points, or 0.9 percent, to close
at 14,831 Thursday, wiping out nearly
all of its 138-point fall the day before.
The Standard & Poors 500 climbed
15 points, or 0.9 percent, to 1,597.
The Nasdaq rose 41 points, or 1.3
percent, to 3,340 points.
CBS and Facebook rose after report-
ing income that was better than Wall
Street analysts had been expecting.
The Labor Department reported that
applications for unemployment benets
fell to a ve-year low last week.
Three stocks rose for every one that
fell on the New York Stock Exchange.
Volume was slightly below average at
3.4 billion shares.
US jobless claims fall to 5-year low
of 324,000
Unemployment applications fall
The number of Americans seeking
unemployment aid fell last week to
seasonally adjusted 324,000, the lowest
since January 2008. The drop points to
fewer layoffs and possibly more hiring.
The Labor Department said Thurs-
day that weekly applications fell
18,000, the second straight sharp
drop. The four-week average, a less
volatile measure, plummeted 16,000 to
342,250, close to a ve-year low.
Applications are a proxy for layoffs.
When they fall below 350,000, it is
generally consistent with moderate
hiring.
GM 1Q prot falls 14 percent; new
pickups key to year
New trucks key for GM
New cars were key for General Mo-
tors in the rst quarter. New trucks
will be the key to the rest of this year.
Two new Opels the Mokka
subcompact SUV and Adam small car
helped GM stanch its rst-quarter
losses in Europe, while the Cadillac
XTS and Chevrolet Malibu sedans
took China by storm. GMs worldwide
sales rose almost 4 percent in the rst
three months.
Now GMs fortunes rest on the rede-
signed Chevrolet Silverado and GMC
Sierra full-size pickups. The trucks,
which were last updated in 2007, go on
sale in a few weeks. GM hopes to cut
into Fords lead in the pickup segment,
which is red-hot due to a recovery in
the housing and construction markets.

Buffetts views on the role of wom-
en appeared online Thursday in an
editorial he wrote for Fortune maga-
zine.
He says most of Americas pros-
perity was created using only about
50 percent of its talent the men.
So hes condent the country will
prosper as more women excel in the
workforce.
For most of our history, women
whatever their abilities have been
relegated to the sidelines, Buffett
writes. Only in recent years have we
begun to correct that problem.
Buffett, 82, discussed the topic at
the University of Nebraska at Oma-
has business college Thursday and
took questions from students. The
talk was broadcast online at Fortune.
com.
Women just havent had the same
chance, he said.
When it comes to investing Buffett
said anyone looking to manage other
peoples money should learn every-
thing they can and try to develop a
track record of managing money.
They wont care about your gen-
der if they think you can make thema
lot of money, Buffett said. But he en-
couraged the students to make sure
they dont dene success strictly in
monetary terms.
When you get to be my age if
the people you want to have love you,
love you then you are a success, Buf-
fett said.
Buffett is getting ready to face
more than 30,000 Berkshire Hatha-
way shareholders this weekend. He is
Berkshires chairman and CEO.
Berkshire owns roughly 80 subsid-
iaries that include railroad, clothing,
furniture and jewelry rms. Its insur-
ance and utility businesses typically
account for more than half of the
companys net income. The Omaha,
Neb., company also has major invest-
ments in companies such as Coca-
Cola Co., Wells Fargo & Co., and In-
ternational Business Machines Corp.,
better known as IBM.
Buffett: Women are key to nations prosperity
By JOSH FUNK
AP Business Writer
WASHINGTON The average
U.S. rate on the 15-year xed mort-
gage fell to a new record low last
week, and the rate on the 30-year
xed loan declined.
Cheaper mortgages have encour-
aged more home-buying and re-
nancing.
Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said
Thursday that the average rate for
the 15-year xed mortgage slipped
to 2.56 percent. Thats the lowest on
records dating to 1991. It fell from
2.61 percent last week, the previous
record.
The rate on the 30-year loan de-
clined to 3.35 percent from 3.40
percent last week. Thats near the
average rate of 3.31 percent reached
in November, the lowest on records
dating back to 1971.
Low mortgage rates have helped
sustain a housing recovery that be-
gan last year. Home sales and con-
struction are up from a year ago, and
prices are rising in most markets.
The number of Americans who
signed contracts to buy homes rose
in March to the highest level in three
years, the National Association of Re-
altors said earlier this week.
And home prices rose 9.3 percent
in February compared with a year
earlier, according to the Standard
& Poors/Case-Shiller 20-city home
price index. Thats the biggest annual
gain in nearly seven years.
Still, prices are surging because
more buyers have fewer homes to bid
on. And sales are rising in some mar-
kets hit hardest by the housing crisis
because investors are scooping up
homes before prices rise further.
Mortgage rates are falling because
they tend to track the yield on the 10-
year Treasury note. The yield fell to
1.63 percent on Thursday the low-
est this year.
The yield declines when demand
for Treasurys increases. The Federal
Reserve has been buying Treasury
bonds since the fall. And in recent
weeks, concerns that economic
growth is slowing in the U.S. and
abroad has led investors to shift mon-
ey into safer assets, like Treasurys,
and away from stocks.
To calculate average mortgage
rates, Freddie Mac surveys lend-
ers across the country on Monday
through Wednesday each week.
15-year mortgage at record 2.56%

ECB slashes
rates to boost
Euro zone
FRANKFURT, Germany The
European Central Bank cut its key
interest rate to a record low 0.50 per-
cent Thursday and announced other
measures to spur lending and help lift
the euro area out of a stubborn reces-
sion.
ECB President Mario Draghi said
the bank was prepared to ex its
muscles further in the face of high
and rising unemployment and grow-
ing evidence that Europes economy
is getting weaker. He said the ECB
stood ready to act if needed, but he
also implored European governments
which responded to the regions
debt crisis by slashing spending
to do more to stimulate economic
growth.
On Wednesday, the U.S. Federal
Reserve signaled it wouldnt rule out
taking more action to boost growth
and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke
warned Americas political leaders
that their policies were holding back
the economy.
The ECB lowered its benchmark
renancing rate from 0.75 percent,
as expected, at a meeting of its rate-
setting council in Bratislava, Slovakia.
And out of concern that Europes -
nancial industry is lending too cau-
tiously and holding back business
investment, the ECB also extended
its offer of unlimited, cheap loans to
banks at least through July 2014. Pre-
viously, the ECB had planned to end
the program as soon as this July.
To jolt banks into lending more
freely, Draghi said the ECB would
even consider charging banks to de-
posit funds with the ECB. Since 2008,
the ECB has reduced the interest rate
it pays to banks on deposits from 3.25
percent to zero, creating an incentive
for them to lend that money out in-
stead.
Together, the measures announced
by the ECB Thursday amounted to a
grim recognition: Despite record-low
interest rates, European banks still re-
main risk-averse, while some compa-
nies dont want to risk borrowing in a
slow economy.
Draghi also delivered a warning to
Europes political leaders: Extraordi-
nary actions by the central bank will
not be enough to heal the regions
economy. Governments need to accel-
erate efforts to cut excessive regula-
tions and make Europe a more hospi-
table place for business.
The economy of the 17 European
Union countries that use the euro cer-
tainly needs a boost. The ECB says
the eurozone will shrink 0.5 percent
for all of this year and unemployment
is at 12.1 percent.
