WILKES-BARRE Dont let its quiet drifting fool you. The Susquehanna laps lazily on its riverbanks and gently ushers boaters downstream under bridges and past sherman casting for a catch. But its history is riddled with highs and lows. Those who have strolled the River Common park or atop

the levee system on the West Side appreciate the rivers wide magnicence. However, the Susquehanna has proven powerful enough to rise up and destroy homes, claim lives and cost her bordering towns billions.

A shortage of primary care physicians in some parts of the country is expected to worsen.

COLUMBUS, Ohio Getting face time with the family doctor could soon become even harder. A shortage of primary care physicians in some parts of the country is expected to worsen as millions of newly insured Americans gain coverage under the federal

health care law next year. Doctors could face a backlog, and patients could find it difficult to get quick appointments. Attempts to address the provider gap have taken on increased urgency ahead of the laws full implementation Jan. 1, but many of the potential solutions face a backlash from influential groups or will take years to bear fruit.

Lobbying groups representing doctors have questioned the safety of some of the proposed changes, argued they would encourage less collaboration among health professionals and suggested they could create a two-tiered health system offering unequal treatment.

A Stroudsburg man was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison Friday for the 2011 fatal stabbing of a pregnant woman and the death of her unborn child. Ruben Velazquez Jr., 42, pleaded guilty in March to stabbing to death the eight-month pregnant Krystle Vasquez, 24, in his Broad Street, Stroudsburg, apartment. He stabbed her in the throat, nding and using a second knife after the rst knife broke. Minutes later, he called 911 dispatchers and told them he attacked her because she had been annoying him. Defense attorney Axel Jones pointed to Velazquezs history of mental illness, including dual diagnoses of being schizophrenic and bipolar. But Monroe County Judge Arthur Zulick said it doesnt change the fact Velazquez killed two people. I dont see that she did anything to provoke this, Zulick said. It seems fairly obvious to me his mental illness is part of the reason were here today. That doesnt help Krystle, Zulick said later. That doesnt help the rest of us. Zulick sentenced Velazquez to 20 to 40 years for Vasquezs murder and 10 to 20 years for the death of her unborn child. He ruled Velazquez must serve each sentence separately, meaning Velazquez will spend a minimum of 30 years in prison. Psychologist John A. Abbruzzese Jr. who met with Velazquez three times on behalf of the defense

testied Velazquez had a very at tone devoid of emotion, and a history of being unable to control his anger. He said Velazquez poses a danger to society. Velazquez said he stabbed Vasquez after she refused to leave his apartment. Abbruzzese was asked by prosecutor Mike Mancuso to square his inability to control anger to the fact that this was Velazquezs rst violent crime. Theres no explanation other than he was angry, Abbruzzese said. The psychologist said Velazquez said in one interview if he had to do it over again, he would wait until the baby was born before killing Vasquez. In their last conversation on Thursday, however, Velazquez said he would have asked Vasquez to leave his apartment. Jones said his client may have been affected by being heavily medicated in the Monroe County Correctional Facility when Velazquez initially failed to express remorse for the stabbing. I know he absolutely expressed remorse for that, Jones said. Ive seen it myself. The two sentences should be imposed concurrently, rather then consecutively, Jones said, because the crime was the result of one act against Vasquez. The defense will le a motion asking Zulick to reconsider that decision, Jones said later. Other than that, I believe Judge Zulick fairly considered the testimony and letters of reference from Rubens family and entered a just sentence, Jones said. There are no plans to appeal the sentence. Family members of Velazquez and Vasquez both

offered emotional testimony in which they said their loved ones tried to help the less fortunate, including people they barely knew. Mother Cindy Velazquez said her son was accomplished as a high school student and that he tried to help those around him as an adult. Our son always opened his door to anyone who needed help, she said. A sister, Celina Ann Velazquez, said her brother was gentle, giving and caring, that the stabbing was completely out of character. He gave people he barely knew shelter, food and other help, sometimes being taken advantage of for it, she said. He has always shown kindness to others and will give the shirt off his back, she added. Vasquezs family said her death has permanently torn them apart. My family is broken and will never be whole again, sister Jessica Roman said. Vasquez volunteered at churches and homeless shelters, Roman said. Vasquez often sat at a downtown bench to talk to a man who lost his home to a re. She helped so many people in her short life, mother Georgiana Nolan said. She never deserved this at all. From what I know there was no remorse, Nolan added, calling for imposing the maximum 80-year sentence on Velazquez. Youre a monster and a disease to this community and should never be allowed out again, Roman said.

SALEM TWP. Its been about five years and some still hold out. The statemandated sewer system which runs about four miles from Confers Lane into East Berwick was installed between 2008 and 2009 and some residents havent hooked up, saying the government should not dig so deep into residents pockets. The state Department of Environmental Protection called for the sewer system because septic systems were draining through the Shickshinny areas sandy earth into the Susquehanna River.

up. Hook-up was mandatory for those whose homes were within 150 feet of the new pipes, McDonald said. Residents would then have to pay around an additional $1,000 to $2,000 for a contractor to connect their pipes to the line, according to one resident, Patty McGraw, 71, who is on a payment plan to take care of her hook-up fee. Property owners pay a regular sewer bill of $56 per month for each individual dwelling unit. I pay em $25 a month. Thats all I

got, McGraw said of her payment plan. She said the bills in the townships Beech Haven neighborhood hurt the generally older population. Its a shame. Were all old people living down here, McGraw said. Berwick Area Joint Sewer Authority manages the new line, which was added as an extension to its existing system. Authority manager Gloria Bobersky said she recently sent out 85 letters to households that have not yet indicated if they had

hooked up to the line. McDonald said county Judge David Lupas issued officials a writ of scire facias, which gives them authority, in worst-case scenarios, to sell homes in a sheriffs sale if residents refuse to hook up after all township attempts. The attorney said that right now they are taking great strides to avoid sheriffs sale and all who were near that ultimatum have started cooperating. Bobersky said inquiry responses are beginning to filter back in the affirmative. Residents are hooking up, though she said its hard to know how many remain disconnected because some hook into the line and pay the monthly fee, but they do not tell the sewer authority.

KINGSTON TWP. Amateur radio operators, otherwise known as hams, have been communicating with each other since before the first radio, television, computer or smart phone. Since 1933, hams have been filling the airwaves all over the world, and on Saturday members of Murgas Amateur Radio Club based in WilkesBarre gathered at Frances Slocum State Park for a field day to keep the ham-bug alive. Club President Bob Michael of Pringle said hams from all over North America will be participating, signaling each other for 24 hours over the weekend. He estimates tens of thousands of hams will be on the air during that time. The 70-member club has been holding this annual ham radio event since 1977, Michael said. Visitors are welcome to stop by to learn how to operate ham radios and talk to other hams, he added. The group will be located in pavilion 2 at the park; visitors will notice the high-tech antennas standing up to 50 feet high reaching out to the ham universe. When hams communicate, much of the conversation involves basic introductory information, some of it in Morse code or other forms of radio language, said Joe Caffrey, a Larksville resident who has been an enthusiastic ham since 1955. Its about making contact with other

hams, Caffrey said. Some clubs even hold contests to earn bragging rights about how many contacts they made, he added. On Saturday, the club was pulling in about 30 new contacts per hour from all over the continent, Michael said. The Murgas group usually leads all of Eastern Pennsylvania each year, he said. Like any other hobby, the computer has made a significant impact on hams. One computer program sends repetitive signals at the rate of 4,000 words per minute, Michael said. Pulling in the signal is like catching a grain of sand, he said. Caffrey said ham operators are not allowed to conduct any business or do any broadcasting. But they are licensed by the Federal Communications Commission and represent a varied group of all types of enthusiasts, from government officials to mechanics and from astronauts to farmers. Caffrey admitted he tried to communicate with another ham in Australia to get a heads up on the next days stock market; however, it never really worked he said. Michael said hams provide a valuable community service. The group is called amateur because its members arent paid. But they can be of assistance whenever necessary, even during disasters, to communicate all over the world, he said. We do it because we love it, he said.

Trout, bats aided by land preservation


Balliet Run on parcel conserved by the North Branch Land Trust
Tom Venesky
tvenesky@timesleader.com

Two struggling species received a boost recently when the North Branch Land Trust conserved 400 acres in Luzerne County. As part of a mitigation project with Pennsy Supply Corp., the land trust conserved a 100-acre parcel in Dorrance Township that is home to Balliet Run, an exceptional-value stream that contains native brook trout. The trust also partnered with Earth Conservancy to conserve 300 acres in Newport Township that contains habitat for the endangered Indiana bat. That parcel was also preserved as part of the Pennsy mitigation agreement, which came about after the company expanded its quarry.

Paul Lumia, NBLT executive director, said the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service required Pennsy to mitigate the acreage from its quarry expansion because it was within a 10-mile radius of a Pennsylvania Natural Diversity Inventory hit on the Indiana bat. Pennsy contacted wanting to know if we knew of any land within the Indiana bat habitat to conserve, Lumia said. The 100-acre site in Dorrance Township was already owned by Pennsy and the conservation easement, which means the property can never be developed. It is monitored by NBLT. Lumia said his organization was interested in the tract because of the presence of native brook trout in Balliet Run. Native brook trout have been declining in Pennsylvania due to habi-

tat loss. The 300-acre parcel in Newport Township is owned by Earth Conservancy and is close to the location of the PNDI hit on the Indiana bat, Lumia said. The property also contains small caves which are used by bats, he said. To preserve the parcel, Pennsy paid Earth Conservancy $1,000 per acre for the conservation easement, which is monitored by the land trust. Earth Conservancy still owns the property. Our strategic plan is to conserve a lot of these areas in Luzerne County that are threatened, Lumia said. These two sites were prime for conservation. Earth Conservancy president Mike Dziak said the Newport Township property is part of 2,000 acres that his

organization owns in that area, and the land is enrolled in the Pennsylvania Game Commissions public access program to allow hunting. Our intention is to keep the top of that mountain green, Dziak said. Lumia said the land trust is actively pursuing other conservation projects in the county, including a 400-acre tract on Bald Mountain that contains the headwaters and tributaries to Mill Creek. The plan is to purchase the property and donate it to another land trust to monitor, Lumia said. There are also plans to conserve more than 3,300 acres in Mocanaqua. The property is owned by Earth Conservancy and Lumia said the land trust is seeking a grant from the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to acquire the parcel. If the purchase is made, Lumia said the land will be turned over to the Bureau of Forestry.

could be days before people are allowed back into their homes, cabins and RV parks, re crew spokeswoman Laura McConnell said. South Fork Mayor Kenneth Brooke estimated that up to 1,500 of the towns permanent residents and summer visitors were evacuated. Some business owners were being allowed back into South Fork to prepare for the lifting of the evacuations. Ofcials, meanwhile, closely monitored an arm of the blaze moving toward the neighboring town of Creede. We were very, very lucky, said Rio Grande County Commissioner Carla Shriver. We got a free pass yesterday. McConnell said no structures had been lost and the re was still about 5 miles from the town. The blaze had been fueled by dry, hot, windy weather and a stand of dead trees, killed by a beetle infestation. But the res spread had slowed by Saturday morning after the ames hit a healthy section of forest. Fire crews remained alert as more hot, dry and windy weather was forecast. The wildre, a complex of three blazes, remains a danger, ofcials said. Smoke permeated the air Saturday in Del Norte, where a Red Cross shelter was set up for evacuees. Anticipating the mandatory South Fork evacuation would last for days, the Red Cross promised more supplies and portable showers. New fire crews, meanwhile, descended from other areas to join more than 32 fire engines stationed around South Fork, with hoses and tankers at the ready. Firefighters also worked to move potential fuel, such as lawn furniture, propane tanks and wood piles, away from homes and buildings.

Rivers drop in Calgary, three dead in floods


Inundation forces authorities to evacuate Calgarys entire downtown
The Associated Press CALGARY, Alberta The two rivers that converge on the western Canadian city of Calgary are receding Saturday after oods devastated much of southern Alberta province, causing at least three deaths and forcing thousands to evacuate. The ooding forced authorities to evacuate Calgarys entire downtown and hit some of the citys iconic structures hard. The Saddledome, home to the National Hockey Leagues Calgary Flames, was ooded up to the 10th row, leaving the dressing rooms submerged. Water lapped at the roof of the chuckwagon barns at the grounds of the Calgary Stampede, which is scheduled to start in two weeks. Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi has said the city will do everything it can to make sure that the world-renowned party goes ahead. Bruce Burrell, director of the citys emergency management agency, said Saturday they are seeing improvements in the rivers. Dan Limacher, director of water services for the city, said the Elbow river is expected to recede by about 60 percent over the next two days, while the larger Bow river will recede by about 25 percent. The improving conditions Saturday morning prompted Calgarys mayor to tweet: Its morning in Calgary! Sunny, water levels are down, and our spirit remains strong. Were not out of this, but maybe have turned corner. However, Nenshi said later Saturday that while the city may have turned a corner, there is still a state of emergency in effect. Flows on Elbow and Bow (rivers) are dropping slowly. We do believe the peak has passed on the Elbow. However, water levels are still four times higher than 2005 ood levels, he said during a press conference. Overowing rivers on Thursday and Friday washed out roads and bridges, soaked homes and turned streets into dirt-brown waterways around southern Alberta. High River, southwest of Calgary, was one of the hardest-hit areas and remained under a mandatory evacuation order. Police said they have recovered three bodies in the town. It is estimated that half the people in the town of 13,000 experienced ooding in their homes.

DOHA, Qatar The Taliban signaled a willingness to meet demands to keep their ag lowered as the U.S. warned Saturday that their newly opened political ofce in Qatar might have to be closed as talks aimed at ending nearly 12 years of war in Afghanistan remained in limbo. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the ball was in the Islamic militant movements court, urging the Taliban to step back from the brink and begin what he called the difcult road ahead. He said the main U.S. envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan was in Doha and waiting to nd out whether the Taliban will respond. The Talibans ofce opened Tuesday to much fanfare and a simultaneous announcement that U.S. ofcials would begin formal talks with Taliban representatives, which eventually would be joined by the Afghan government raised hopes that the longstalled peace process aimed at ending Washingtons longest war could nally begin. But it ran into trouble from the outset when Afghan President Hamid Karzai temporarily withdrew from talks to protest the Talibans use of its old ag and a sign bearing the name of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, which the movement used during its ve-year rule that ended in 2001 with the U.S.-led invasion. After intervention from the Qatar government, the ag was lowered and the sign changed to the Political Bureau of the Taliban Afghan in Doha. Both the U.S. and the Qataris said the Taliban had agreed on the pre-approved name but violated the pact at the ribbon cutting ceremony. A Taliban spokesman in Doha, Shaheen Suhail, suggested the Taliban were willing to move forward despite much anger among some members over the removal of the name and the lowering of

the Taliban ag a white ag emblazoned with a Quranic verse in black. In the past 12 years, the opening of the political ofce is the rst ray in the direction of peace in Afghanistan, Suhail said. He told The Associated Press in a telephone call that the U.S. had not contacted the Taliban yet to discuss a meeting. James Dobbins, U.S. special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, arrived in Doha on Saturday. Kerry, in the Qatari capital for separate talks on Syrias civil war, said the Americans and the Afghan governments High Peace Council were ready, and he encouraged the Taliban to remain in the process. Nothing comes easily in this endeavor, we understand that. The road ahead will be difcult, no question about it, if there is a road ahead, he said at a press conference, adding its really up to the Taliban to make that choice. It remains to be seen in this very rst test whether or not the Taliban are prepared to do their part, he said.

Pilot, stunt walker die at air show The plane that crashed at an Ohio air show, killing the pilot and stunt walker, is registered to a veteran wing walker. Federal records show that the Boeing Stearman biplane that crashed Saturday at the Vectren Air Show near Dayton was registered to Jane Wicker of Loudon, Va. The Federal Aviation Administration says Wicker was also a contract employee who worked as an FAA budget analyst. An FAA ofcial says the kind of aircraft that crashed was heavily used for pilot training during World War II. The plane turned upsidedown as Wicker sat on top of the wing before it tilted and crashed into the ground, bursting into ames. The air show canceled the rest of Saturdays events after the crash but planned to resume Sunday. Southwest ights Southwest Airlines expected some lingering delays Saturday after a system-wide computer failure caused it to ground 250 ights for nearly three hours late Friday night. Full service was restored just after 2 a.m. EDT Saturday, but the Dallasbased airline was still working to clear a backlog of ights and reposition planes and crew. The airline the countrys largest domestic carrier canceled 43 ights Friday night and another 14 Saturday morning. In April, American Airlines grounded all of its ights nationwide for several hours due to computer problems.

Police estimated that about 60,000 demonstrators gathered in a central square in the city of Belo Horizonte, largely to denounce legislation that would limit the power of federal prosecutors to investigate crimes in a country where many are fed up with the high rate of robberies and killings. President Dilma Rousseff, a former leftist guerrilla who was tortured during Brazils military dictatorship, made a televised 10-minute appearance on

Nearly 600 die in ooding, landslides Soldiers worked on rocky gorges and rugged riverbanks Saturday trying to evacuate tens of thousands of people still stranded by monsoon ooding and landslides that killed nearly 600 people in northern Indias Himalayas. With bad weather and

heavy rainfall predicted over the next two days, there was an added urgency to reach the approximately 22,000 people still stranded in the oodhit Uttarakhand state, federal Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said. Since helicopters could rescue only small groups of people at a time, army troops Saturday opened up another road route to the Hindu temple town of Kedarnath, worst affected by the oods that hit the mountainous region nearly a week ago.

SANFORD, Fla. The judge in the murder trial of George Zimmerman said Saturday that prosecution audio experts who point to Trayvon Martin as screaming on a 911 call moments before he was killed wont be allowed to testify at trial. The screams are crucial pieces of evidence because they could determine who the aggressor was in the confrontation before Zimmerman fatally shot the unarmed teenager. Martins family contends it was the teen screaming, while Zimmermans father has said it was his son. Judge Debra Nelson ruled that the methods used by the experts arent reliable. But her ruling doesnt prevent the 911 calls from being played at trial. She reached the decision after hearing arguments that stretched over several days this month on whether to allow testimony from two prosecution experts. One expert ruled out Zimmerman as the screamer and another said it was Martin. Defense experts argued there was not enough audio to determine who the screams are coming from. Zimmermans attorneys also argued that the state experts analysis is awed. Opening statements are set for Monday in the seconddegree murder trial for the former neighborhood watch volunteer who says he red on the black teenager in selfdefense last year. Zimmerman is pleading not guilty.

Sewer
From Page 3A serious errors in construction plans. Sewer pipes re-routed stream water toward homes, causing flooded basements and structural damage. Carl Cragle, 73, lives on Main Street, which runs parallel to U.S. Route 11 and says he cannot connect to the sewer line because his basement was made unstable by the water damage. One contractor estimated it would cost about $24,000 to make his basement safer. He said his home which is more than 200 years old, would crumble if he connected to the sewer line before making repairs. Cragles attorney, Patrick OConnell, Bloomsburg, said they have no intent of tapping into the line until the township fixes the problem. He said Cragles problem and similar problems along the sewer line were caused by negligent Salem Township contractors and shouldnt fall to the residents to repair. McGraw said problems continued for nearly two years before the waters points of entry along the line were plugged with clay. For 21 months, I had to run constantly, day and night, three sump pumps to pump the water out, McGraw said. McDonald said the townships new engineering firm, Barry Isett & Associates of

Hazleton, has worked out nearly all of the bugs and the township employees are tending to the damages caused.
Government help

Cragle is one of the few who still holds out, almost certainly because of the high cost to repair his homes foundation if he connects. A township employee said government assistance was offered to Cragle, but it expired because he didnt use it in time. Karen Karchner, a township building codes official, said a U.S. Department of Agriculture grant sat for too long in an account to pay Cragles connection fee and the USDA also gave him about $1,260 to pay for construction. That money is no longer available. Cragle showed a bill from the sewer authority stating he owed $3,915.78 due immediately. Bobersky said there is still USDA grant money available, but only for residents 62 and older. They also must show financial hardship. McGraw said she applied for the grant but was denied because she had a job. She worked 20 hours per week when she applied. She receives a pension, but she does not work any more. Dave Vought, 58, said he was denied a similar grant because, though he is receives disability payments for lung disease, he has an old motorcycle, a car, a pickup truck and an RV from his working days, most of which he does not use.

From Page 1A dental therapists, optometrists, psychologists, nurse practitioners and others have been killed or watered down in numerous states. Other states have proposed expanding student loan reimbursements, but money for doing so is tight. As fixes remain elusive, the shortfall of primary care physicians is expected to grow. Nearly one in ve Americans already lives in a region designated as having a shortage of primary care physicians, and the number of doctors entering the eld isnt expected to keep pace with demand. About a quarter million primary care doctors work in America now, and the Association of American Medical Colleges projects the shortage will reach almost 30,000 in two years and will grow to about 66,000 in little more than a decade. In some cases, nurses and physician assistants help ll in the gap. The national shortfall can be attributed to a number of factors: The population has both aged and become more chronically ill, while doctors and clinicians have migrated to specialty fields such as dermatology or cardiology for higher pay and better hours. The shortage is especially acute in impoverished inner cities and rural areas, where it already takes many months, years in some cases, to hire doctors, health professionals say. Im thinking about putting our human resources manager on the street in one of those costumes with a We will hire you sign, said Doni Miller, chief executive of the Neighborhood Health Association in Toledo, Ohio. One of her clinics has had a physician opening for two years. In southern Illinois, the 5,500 residents of Gallatin County have no hospital, dentist or full-time doctor.

Dont want mug shot online? Then pay up, sites say
Websites says they are providing public service. Critics say they are putting the squeeze on people.
Adam Geller
AP National Writer

After more than seven years and a move 2,800 miles across the country, Christopher Jones thought hed left behind reminders of the arrest that capped a bitter break-up. That was, until he searched the Internet last month and came face-to-face with his 2006 police mug shot. The information below the photo, one of millions posted on commercial website mugshots. com, did not mention that the apartment Jones was arrested for burglarizing was the one hed recently moved out of, or that Florida prosecutors decided shortly afterward to drop the case. But, otherwise, the graphic artists run-in with the law was there for anyone, anywhere, to see. And if he wanted to erase the evidence, says Jones, now a resident of Livermore, Calif., the sites operator told him it

would cost $399. Jones said he was angered by the terms of the offer, but no more so than scores of other people across the country discovering that past arrests many for charges eventually dismissed or that resulted in convictions later expunged make them part of an unwilling, but potentially enormous customer base for a fastproliferating number of mug shot web sites. With a business model built on the strengths of technology, the weaknesses of human nature and the reach of the First Amendment, the sites are proving that in the Internet age, old assumptions about peoples ability to put the past behind them no longer apply. The sites, some charging fees exceeding $1,000 to unpublish records of multiple arrests, have prompted lawsuits in Ohio and Pennsylvania by people whose mug shots they

posted for a global audience. They have also sparked efforts by legislators in Georgia and Utah to pass laws making it easier to remove arrest photos from the sites without charge or otherwise curb the sites. But site operators and critics agree that efforts to rein them in treads on uncertain legal ground, made more complicated because some sites hide their ownership and location and purport to operate from outside the U.S. The First Amendment gives people the right to do this, said Marc G. Epstein, an attorney in Hallandale, Fla. who said he represents the operator of mugshots.com, which lists an address on the Caribbean island of Nevis. I dont think there was ever a First Amendment that contemplated the permutations of communication that we have now. Operators of some sites say theyre performing a public service, even as they seek prot. I absolutely believe that a parent, for instance, has a right to know if their kids coach has been arrested I think the public has a right to know that and I feel they have a right to

know that easily, accessibly and not having to go to a courthouse, said Arthur DAntonio III, CEO of justmugshots. com, a Nevada-based site that started in early 2012 and now claims a database of more than 10 million arrest photos. But critics are skeptical. I cant nd any public interest thats served if you are willing to take it (a mug shot) down if I give you $500. Then what public interest are you serving?, said Roger Bruce, a state representative from the Atlanta area who authored a law, set to take effect July 1, requiring sites to remove photos free for those arrested in Georgia if they can show that charges have since been dismissed. Scott Ciolek, a Toledo lawyer who last year brought suit against four sites on behalf of two Ohioans dismayed to nd their arrest photos online, said the mug shot publishers are taking advantage of peoples embarrassment to unfairly squeeze them for prot. The individuals who are victims of these extortions want as little attention on them as possible, if you know what Im saying, Ciolek said.

Artificial pancreasprogress could aid those with diabetes


Marilynn Marchione
AP Chief Medical Writer

Doctors are reporting a major step toward an articial pancreas, a device that would constantly monitor blood sugar in people with diabetes and automatically supply insulin as needed. A key component of such a system an insulin pump programmed to shut down if blood-sugar dips too low while people are sleeping worked as intended in a threemonth study of 247 patients. This smart pump, made by Minneapolisbased Medtronic Inc., is already sold in Europe, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is reviewing it now. Whether it also can be programmed to mimic a real pancreas and constantly adjust insulin based on continuous readings from a blood-sugar monitor requires more testing, but doctors say the new study suggests thats a realistic goal. This is the rst step in the development of the articial pancreas, said Dr. Richard Bergenstal, diabetes chief at Park Nicollet, a large clinic in St. Louis Park, Minn. Before we said its a dream. We have the rst part of it now and I really think it will be developed. He led the companysponsored study and gave results Saturday at an American Diabetes Association conference in Chicago. They also were published online by the New England Journal of Medicine. The study involved people with Type 1 diabetes, the kind usually diagnosed during childhood. About 5 percent of the 26 million Americans with diabetes have this type. Their bodies dont make insulin, a hormone needed to turn food into energy. That causes high blood-sugar levels and raises the risk for heart disease and many other health problems. Some people with the more common Type 2 diabetes, the

kind linked to obesity, also need insulin and might also benet from a device like an articial pancreas. For now, though, its aimed at people with Type 1 diabetes who must inject insulin several times a day or get it through a pump with a narrow tube that goes under the skin. The pump

is about the size of a cellphone and can be worn on a belt or kept in a pocket. The pumps give a steady amount of insulin, and patients must monitor their sugar levels and give themselves more insulin at meals or whenever needed to keep blood sugar from getting too high. A big danger is hav-

ing too much insulin in the body overnight, when blood-sugar levels naturally fall. People can go into comas, suffer seizures and even die. Parents of children with diabetes often worry so much about this that they sneak into their bedrooms at night to check their childs bloodsugar monitor.

Hiring
From Page 1A areas is somewhat foreign in Luzerne County government because past ofcials rarely reached outside county borders and in some instances didnt publicly advertise positions. Before home rule, the most memorable hiring of an outside manager Indiana resident Kimberli Weiland as human resources director in 2004 was a negative experience because ofcials were forced to terminate her after learning she was wanted in her home state for a shoplifting charge and had been disbarred as an attorney for altering her law school transcripts. Voters demanded public advertising and merit hiring when they approved the switch to home rule government, and New York native Robert Lawton, who most recently worked in California, was named the rst county manager after a nationwide search. Lawton chose to advertise the eight home rule division head posts nationally through professional trade associations and government management organizations. Six of his division head nominees were conrmed by council to date four local and two outside the county. One of the newcomers Easton resident J. Allen Nesbitt as prison system overseer received high marks from council members during his budget presentation last week. The other out-of-county hire Archbald resident Richard Cardamone as budget/nance head was deemed highly credentialed but left after a few weeks on the job to accept another position outside the area. His departure bolstered the argument of some that outsiders may not be as committed to the county. Coxen said she would have provided fresh perspectives on efciencies that have worked elsewhere but does not fault council members for promoting from within. Im respecting their decision. What I respected most was their honesty, Coxen said.

residence. He addressed the judicial services division head position during a luncheon with municipal ofcials last week, saying his initial nominee was not conrmed by council. We went with somebody whos going to do a ne job, but my point is I have made every effort to put the quality of the job ahead of where youre from, Lawton said. Lawton said many county residents have been here a long time and know each other, but his newcomer status is benecial to the county. Nobody knows the county manager, and thats how it is. Thats how its going to stay, he said.
Legitimate debate

tise and recruit outside their borders, but if they do its strategic and in some cases nece s s a r y, Hill said. Lawton said he will cont i n u e searching both here and outside for top management positions because he must nd the best qualied candidates, regardless of their

The debate about hiring local isnt just occurring here. One example: the Clark County School Board in Las Vegas recently halted plans to conduct a national search for a new superintendent after widespread community pressure to hire locally, according to published reports. The board held town hall meetings and posted an online survey to obtain feedback, receiving mixed opinions. Critics argued the board should search far and wide to nd the best possible talent, with one saying, We seem to be afraid of competition. Opponents argued an outside search was an unnecessary waste of time. The board ended up unanimously appointing a 25-year veteran employee, saying he had solid plans and would need no learning curve. Doug Hill, head of the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania, said hes observed varied approaches in counties. Some outside searches are necessary due to a lack of qualied residents with necessary skills, he said. Ofcials may want applicants with new ideas and approaches from other areas while others see a value in local familiarity and contacts. I wont say its uncommon for counties to adver-

Councilman Rick Morelli said local preference in government hiring is a legitimate debate. He supports a national search for the county manager but believes division head searches should be limited to this area unless theres a shortage of qualied, viable local applicants. The perception is always hire someone from outside because they dont have political connections. I can understand and respect that, but its a slap in the face to local residents to automatically paint them as political, Morelli said. Morelli said local residents shouldnt sell themselves short and believes outside hiring will contribute to educated workers leaving the area. Just because you bring someone in from the outside, it doesnt necessarily mean theyll do a good job, he said. I think the majority of county taxpayers believe local residents should have the rst opportunity of consideration for county jobs. Urban said he ultimately rejected Coxen because he didnt believe she had experience in the departments under the judicial services division. The fact that she was not local only came into play after I reviewed her qualications, he said.

People will travel far for a great hospital, but you dont have to. Thanks to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center.
Still think all healthcare is the same?

Urban: Search locally first

However, he agrees with searching locally rst. I talked to many people upset about hirings and high salaries going to people outside the area. They ask whats wrong with local people? Urban said. Councilman Eugene Kelleher said he supports hiring the best person for the job, regardless of residency. He said he supported Hoggarths appointment because she was already proving herself in the position on an interim basis. I dont think it sends a very good message to our employees if theyre not given the chance to advance through the system, Kelleher said. Kelleher said Lawton is

doing an excellent job and faces a challenging situation nominating division heads. If he doesnt advertise nationally, someone will say same-old, same-old, but if he nominates someone outside people will say hes not giving local people a chance, Kelleher said. Councilman Stephen J. Urban said he has no problem seeking candidates outside but said applicants from the area or state may be the best t. People who have worked different places can bring in fresh ideas, but someone outside the state may not have knowledge of Pennsylvania laws and procedures, so there would be a huge learning curve, he said. Urban said hes encountered both positive and negative decisions working in information technology positions at other companies and brought that knowledge to his current employer. Thats the good part of having experience from the outside, he said. Councilwoman Elaine Maddon Curry said she wants an open search and the best candidate, regardless of residency. A hire-local approach insinuates our people would not be competitive in a regional or national search, said Councilwoman Linda McClosky Houck. She urged local residents to imagine what it would be like to be rejected from a job somewhere else because they werent natives of that area. McClosky Houck believes this area is more sensitive about hiring outside because many families have lived here for generations. I personally think its in

everybodys best interest to cast a wide net to seek applicants, she said. Merit hiring means hiring the best person who is interested period. Councilman Rick Williams said residency shouldnt be part of the equation. Its not a question of not selecting a local person. We simply want the best, he said. The hiring of several local division heads proves county residents have expertise to compete, said Councilman Harry Haas. Were not automatically discounting local candidates, and theyre now competing on a national level. I think more people would be upset if we just searched within the county, Haas said. Council Chairman Tim McGinley supports a broad geographical search, saying there may be a shortage of qualied applicants locally or regionally. But I do think we have a lot of people who live in greater Northeastern PA who are very ne people with ne qualications, and I think they should be considered, McGinley said. Councilman Jim Bobeck said the county, like any good business, should promote qualied individuals when merited while recruiting on a local, state and national basis where applicable. Good minds produce good results, and good minds can come from anywhere, he said. One of the areas greatest challenges is a brain drain as excellent people move away after graduation, and it can only be reversed by inviting them back and minimizing lingering provincialism.

GOPs basic strategy for 2016 looks unsettled


House Republicans balking over call to embrace immigration reform.
Charles BaBington
Associated Press

WASHINGTON The Republican Partys road map for winning presidential elections looks hazier than ever as GOP lawmakers and others reject what many considered obvious lessons from Mitt Romneys loss last year. House Republicans are rebelling against the key recommendation of a party-sanctioned post-mortem: embrace comprehensive immigration reform or suffer crippling losses among Hispanic voters in 2016 and beyond. Widespread rejection of warnings from establishment Republicans goes beyond that, however. Many activists say the party simply needs to articulate its conservative principles more skillfully, without modifying any policies, even after losing the popular vote in ve of the past six presidential elections. Despite Romneys poor showing among female voters, House Republicans this past week invited renewed Democratic taunts of a war against women by passing the most restrictive abortion measure in years. Despite corporate fears of the economic damage that would result from a default on U.S. obligations, GOP lawmakers are threatening to block an increase in the governments borrowing limit later this year if President Barack Obama wont accept spending cuts he staunchly opposes. Republicans have lots of time to sort out their priorities and pick a nominee before 2016. They may need it. Party activists appear far from agreed on even basic questions, such as whether to show a more conservative face to voters versus a moderate face, and whether to seek a libertarian-leaning, tea party-backed nominee as opposed to a more traditional Republican such as Romney. There are pretty vigorous debates going on within the party, said Kevin Madden, a top Romney adviser. The most immediate one centers on the only major policy recommendation from a party-commis-

sioned report written after Romneys defeat. Citing dismal showings among the fast-growing Hispanic electorate, the report said Republicans must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform. If we do not, our partys appeal will continue to shrink to its core constituencies only. Many Republicans flatly reject the advice. If the goal of it is to try to fix presidential politics, I think its the wrong thing to do, said Rep. James Lankford, R-Okla. He and many other House Republicans say the best way to attract Hispanics is with the basic conservative pitch used elsewhere: less government, low taxes, personal freedom. But Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said

these Republicans are fooling themselves. If Hispanics think you really are going to deport their grandmother and youve got a hard heart about this kind of stuff, Graham said, your economic ideas dont resonate. Its impossible winning the presidency getting 27 percent of the Hispanic vote, 30 percent

of the Asian vote and 7 percent of the AfricanAmerican vote, Graham said. America is changing. Actually, Romney did slightly worse. He won 26 percent of the AsianAmerican vote and 6 percent of the black vote. He did best among older white voters, a steadily declining share of the electorate.

Constitutional showdown looms at Pa.voter ID trial


Peter Jackson
Associated Press

HARRISBURG Pennsylvanias long-sidelined voter identification law is about to go on trial. Civil libertarians who contend that the statute violates voters rights persuaded a state judge to bar enforcement of the photo ID requirement during the 2012 presidential election and the May primary. But

those were temporary orders based on a narrower context; the trial set to begin July 15 in Commonwealth Court will explore the more complicated constitutional questions. It could be the beginning of a long process. Lawyers in the case say a panel of Commonwealth Court judges may weigh in following the trial, before what both sides expect will be an appeal by the loser to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

If the state prevails, Pennsylvania voters will be required for the first time to show an acceptable photo ID before they may cast ballots. If the court overturns the law, little will change at the polls. It remains unclear how soon the case may be resolved. The plaintiffs lawyers the Public Interest Law Center of Philadelphia, the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania,

the Advancement Project, and the Washington D.C. law firm of Arnold & Porter have asked the court to bar enforcement of the law until the case has been fully resolved by the states high court, most likely after the Nov. 5 judicial and municipal elections. No one thinks this will be decided before the November election, said Jennifer Clarke, executive director of the law center.

The states legal team includes lawyers from the attorney generals office, Gov. Tom Corbetts Office of General Counsel and the private firm of Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP. The law, approved by Republicans who control the Legislature and signed by a GOP governor, provoked a sharply partisan clash during last years presidential election campaign.

GETTYSBURG As gunshots ravaged the bodies of tens of thousands of soldiers at the Battle of Gettysburg, military doctors responded with a method of treatment that is still the foundation of combat medicine today. Union Army Maj. Dr. Jonathan Letterman is remembered as the father of battleeld medicine for his Civil War innovations. He realized that organizing the medical corps was a key for any battle. For military medicine, in particular, the lessons that Letterman gave us are as true today as they were then, said retired Lt. Gen. Ronald Ray Blanck, the former surgeon general for the U.S. Army. Before the war, medical supplies were handled by regular quartermaster wagons, Blanck said, meaning they had to compete with beans and bullets. The situation was so bad that, in some early Civil War battles, the wounded were left on the eld for days, subject to the mercy of untrained troops and civilians. In 1862, Letterman began to create an ambulance corps and three tiers of eld hospitals: at the battleeld for simple wound dressing, nearby for emergency surgery and behind the battle lines for long-term care and recovery. Dale Smith, a professor of military history at the Uniformed Services University in Bethesda, Md., said Lettermans innovations were so successful that Prussian and English observers wrote home to praise the system. Theres never been any question that he changed military medicine internationally, Smith said. But the Battle of Gettysburg was 150 years ago, and some have wondered how that could possibly be relevant for doctors in Iraq and Afghanistan, said George Wunderlich, director of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in Frederick, Md. Wunderlich recalled that about 10 years ago, a military member remarked that it was a shame the Civil War has nothing to do with what we do today with battleeld medicine. But after Wunderlich told him how Civil War

doctors resolved problems with transportation, training and even corruption, the man asked Wunderlich if those topics could be turned into a one-day course. Another man who complained that the Civil War training sessions were unrealistic called Wunderlich later after responding to Hurricane Katrina, where moving supplies was slow and difcult and even some cell towers were down. He says, Im so sorry. Im in 1862 down here and now I get it, Wunderlich recalled. Now, more than 5,500 military members and emergency responders have attended history courses run by the Museum of Civil War Medicine. The classes are designed to get people to think about how decisions get made in combat or crisis, and some are taught on battleelds at Gettysburg and Antietam. The courses include topics such as courage and innovation; artillery and its effects; evacuation; and stress and fatigue. Our job is to use history to save the lives of people today, Wunderlich said. Some of the lessons are subtle. For example, instead of just inspecting hospitals and his staff, Letterman sat beside Union General George McClellan during prebattle meetings to better predict where to station ambulances and doctors. These are the kinds of things that come out from thinking about history, Blanck said. The battles are won or lost on the creativity of the medical ofcer and the support of the commander. Wunderlich said the museum also works to dispel many myths about Civil War medicine. The battles and wounds were certainly horrible, but anesthesia using chloroform or ether was involved in more than 95 percent of all major operations, he said. And while doctors didnt yet understand exactly what germs were, they had noticed that patients did better when certain folklore was practiced. So while military camps were known for being lthy, hospitals followed strict rules for washing bed sheets and letting in plenty of fresh air and sunlight.

River
From Page 1A or washing away bridges. Nearly 25,000 homes were destroyed. while the rain-swollen wreaked havoc, even in recent years, the Susquehanna is a source of pride for many. this weekend thousands celebrate the Susquehannas beauty and the power at the three-day wyoming Valley riverFest, a festival that brings environmentalists and Sunday strollers together to learn about the river and enjoy her earthy amenities.
The rivers festival

Kayak
From Page 1A annual wyoming Valley riverFest, a three-day event celebrating the Susquehanna. Im not a water guy, so youd be surprised to see me out here doing this, Bracey said, nodding toward the river. the computer technician from wilkes-Barre paddled down from the Falls township boat launch with his girlfriend. he had tackled a shorter kayak ride last year, heading from Kingston to Shickshinny, and said he wanted to try something a little bit more challenging this year. workers from Susquehanna river tours and endless mountain outfitters helped grinning kayakers haul their boats up the steep launch ramp. David Buck, owner of endless mountain in Sugar run, stood at the top of the launch counting boats as they returned to land. Buck said he has been running the riverFest treks for 10 years and, this year, rented out about 60 kayaks for Saturdays run. the business owner said he leads excursions of all types, with one recent 100mile sojourn that lasted four days. we mostly ride the Susquehanna, Buck said. Its right there. we live on it. we work on it. emily Kinsey, an experienced kayaker who rides the Lehigh river, said that when the 200 boats cast off in Falls, it was a little nerve-wracking with everyone packed together, but as boaters spread out, she felt more at ease. there were times it felt like you were the only boat in the water, emily said. her sister, rebecca Kinsey, said she liked the fresh perspective. It was neat being on the river. Usually you see the surroundings from the roads, rebecca said. It was neat to get a different perspective. State Department of Conservation and Natural resources forester walter Fayocavitz said DCNr has cut a walking trail and set up campsites and picnic areas on one of the islands near Pittston. the boaters spoke excitedly about the island, saying it was fun to step onto the beach most see only from the mainland. Up in the park, food vendors served up carnival fixins while the non-boating crowd visited displays about the the rivers biology. Brian oram from B.F. environmental, an water inspection company, used an interactive model to show how pollution moves through the water table, and children got a close-up look at some of the Susquehannas native insects at at Penn State University display table. they looked wide-eyed at the giant winged cicada, and even more so at the cicada killer wasp that eats it.

Different groups called their June riverside celebrations different names June is National rivers month but the name riverFest stuck in 1999 when wilkes-Barre hosted the Susquehanna Sojourners, a local organization dedicated to preserving and celebrating the Susquehanna by paddling down the river on a different section each year. Since then, riverFest has grown each year from a small event to a large celebration. In addition to entertainment, food and learning, riverFest gives river lovers three opportunities this weekend to kayak and canoe down the Susquehanna river, from west Pittston to wilkes-Barre, from harding to wilkes-Barre and a day-long trip from wilkes-Barre to hunlock Creek. John maday, executive director of the riverfront Parks Committee, has been involved with the committee for 20 years and has seen riverFest evolve firsthand. he said riverFest has gradually grown over time from an afternoon event to a weekendlong celebration in a logical fashion. In its early years, it was an afternoon event with card tables in Nesbitt Park, then it was a day-long event. Next it developed into a two-day event with added elements such as entertainment and boat tours. as support from the community and sponsors grew, riverFest evolved into the weekend-long event we know today. as long as the community sees value in it, we will keep on doing it, maday said. maday compared riverFest to a classroom. he said the main goal of riverFest is to educate people about the Susquehanna river, and the entertainment, food and vendors lead people to the classroom. You need to get people in their seats before you teach them something, maday said.

the river Common, located on the eastern bank of the Susquehanna river, has been a public place of beauty since 1773, thanks to John Durkee, the man who gave the city of wilkes-Barre its name. when Durkee laid out the plan for wilkes-Barre, he designated the area along the bank of the Susquehanna river as a public or common ground. the area was further decorated in the early 1900s as a result of the City Beautiful movement, a reform philosophy

ing of it as something dirty, Cotrone said. the way we clean the river up is to get more people to use it. one of the missions of riverFest is to connect people to the river so we all become better stewards of our watershed. over the decades, government interests offered flashy designations with hope that money to clean up and preserve the river would float to the surface. Cotrone said, sadly, many of those efforts have drifted to the wayside. Former President Bill Clintons designated the Susquehanna as an american heritage river. about two years ago it was named an historic water trail. (thats a) great designation. (But) along with it really doesnt come the funds for things that are needed, Cotrone said. Cotrone estimated it will cost billions to reroute pollutants that flow into the river every year when storm water causes sewer systems to overflow along the shoreline. that deters swimmers and fishermen. It would still bear great cost, but Cotrone suggested redirecting cities storm water systems deep into the water table instead of the river to keep it from conflicting with the sewers. he said this would be much cheaper than reconstructing the sewer lines. Cotrone said to make sure they stay focused on their mission, vendors with commercial interests are not allowed at the festival. while organizing riverFest, they try to steer plans toward a common purpose understanding and preserving the river. Its not just about paddling the river, Cotrone said. everythings connected if you look at the watershed as a whole.

To some, Susquehanna isnt a fun place


No matter how many fun activities are planned on the Susquehanna river bank during events such as riverFest this weekend, those of us who were here in June 1972 will always know the river has potential to be anything but fun. and with good reason. early-morning sirens, ravaging waters, stinky mud, the loss of treasured possessions devastation are memories embedded in our minds from that terrible day June 23, 1972. that was the day whenthe river rose to never-before-seen heights, burst through the protective levees and spread to one mile across the valley we called home. homes, businesses and peoples ways of life were not just altered, they were lost. So forgive us if we dont frolic by the river this weekend. Pardon us if we fail to celebrate the goodness of our urban stream. mark us absent while we remember just how much we fear what happened 41 years ago and almost did again

OPINION

BILL OBOYLE

nearly two years ago. heavy rains and rising river levels drive us crazy and always will. I went through it. I lost my Plymouth high School 1966 District 2 championship basketball jacket. red with black leather sleeves, it was a real beauty. Pictures of my mom who died four years earlier gone. along with most family photos. my Little League scrapbook. my classic 1960s record albums. my dads heroic war records and medals. my moms cookbooks and recipes. my 1968 wyoming Valley west high School yearbook. my childhood. my memories. a large part of my life swept away by that river. washed all the way to who knows where. I remember being awakened by a voice amplified through a bull horn telling us all of us in a very convincing tone, to get out of our homes and to head for higher ground. my dad and I went to his sisters. Like so many others, we never returned to our home.

the struggle to return to something normal was just starting. either live with family or friends or enjoy the comforts of a hUD trailer. the choices were slim, but inconvenience was the least of our worries. Jobs were on hold, if not lost. the good people of wyoming Valley were extremely resilient. they fought back. that river beat them up pretty bad, but they wouldnt be defeated. So people cleaned up. they gutted their homes and buildings, which were already stripped of their character. walls and ceilings were removed. mud was shoveled from basements and first floors. Piles of peoples lives were stacked out front for the U.S. army Corps of engineers to gather up and take to landfills burial sites for all that was everything to everybody. In Plymouth old Shawnee much of the downtown was hit. as people ltered back to their homes to assess the damage, others volunteered to help them clean up. hundreds of people would show up daily to be sent out to do the same thing shovel mud, rip out walls and ceilings, throw out furniture and

If you were lucky enough to be paid for your work, youd get 20 bucks a day. these men and women some of them flood victims themselves wanted to help their fellow townsfolk to rebuild their homes and their lives. It was group therapy at its best. People were distraught, heartbroken and scared, and together they managed to do far more than federal funds could ever do. But the money helped, too. Gradually, people either returned to their floodplain homes, or they opted to seek higher ground. that alone was a difficult decision to leave the only place youve ever called home for a new beginning in a new neighborhood in a new town. and thats before you decided on where you would seek employment because your old employer was either weeks or months away from reopening. or relocated out of the area. or out of business. these were not the good old

The Susquehanna River brought devastation to downtown Wilkes-Barre in June of 1972. This photo shows the extent of the flooding as a fire rages in a downtown building. days. the summer of 1972 was as difficult as one could be for thousands of flood victims. So its no wonder most of them arent all that interested in celebrating the river or watching a dragon boat race. June, 1972, was anything but a festival. It was a time we want to forget, but cant. Its been said time and again that those of us who were kneehigh in the mud during the aftermath of the agnes Flood can still smell that stench. Its true. I know I can, and the closer I get to the Susquehanna, the easier it is for that smell to return. and when the smell hits, the memories follow. the river Common is beautiful, and as under-used as it is, its a great asset and should be used to market our area to attract new residents and businesses. But dont expect many 1972 agnes victims to be at the river as part of the welcoming committee.

and raise questions about Hong Kongs commitment to the rule of law. The official was not authorized to discuss the matter by name and insisted on anonymity. Hong Kongs government had no immediate reaction to the charges against Snowden, a former National Security Agency contractor who admitted providing information to the news media about the programs. Police Commissioner Andy Tsang told reporters only that the case would be dealt with according to the law. A police statement said it was inappropriate for the police to comment on the case. A one-page criminal complaint against Snowden was unsealed Friday in federal court in Alexandria, Va., part of the Eastern District of Virginia where his former employer, government contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, is headquartered, in McLean. He is charged with unauthorized communication of national defense information, willful communication of clas-

www.timesleader.com TIMES LEADER China Morning Post in an interview published Saturday on its website that he hoped to stay in the autonomous region of China because he has faith in the courts and people of Hong Kong to decide my fate. A prominent former politician in Hong Kong, Martin Lee, the founding chairman of the Democratic Party, said he doubted whether Beijing would intervene yet. Beijing would only intervene according to my understanding at the last stage. If the magistrate said there is enough to extradite, then Mr. Snowden can then appeal, he said. Lee said Beijing could then decide at the end of the appeal process if it wanted Snowden extradited or not. Snowden could contest extradition on grounds of political persecution. Hong Kong lawyer Mark Sutherland said that the filing of a refugee, torture or inhuman punishment claim acts as an automatic bar on any extradition proceedings until those claims can be assessed. Some asylum seekers came to Hong Kong 10 years ago and still havent had their protection claims assessed, Sutherland said. Hong Kong lawmakers said that the Chinese government should make the final decision on whether Snowden should be extradited to the United States. Outspoken legislator Leung Kwok-hung said Beijing should instruct Hong Kong to protect Snowden from extradition before his case gets dragged through the court system. Leung urged the people of Hong Kong to take to the streets to protect Snowden. The Obama administration has now used the Espionage Act in seven criminal cases in an unprecedented effort to stem leaks. In one of them, Army Pfc. Bradley Manning acknowledged he sent more than 700,000 battlefield reports, diplomatic cables and other materials to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks. His military trial is underway.

Hong Kong has been a historically good partner of the United States in law-enforcement matters, and we expect them to comply with the treaty in this case, White House national security adviser Tom Donilon said in an interview with CBS News. He said the U.S. presented Hong Kong with a good case for extradition. However, a senior administration official issued a pointed warning that if Hong Kong doesnt act soon, it will complicate our bilateral relations

ed to have another British-inuenced event. Games will be played, refreshments will be served and, because its a shower, gifts will be collected. This is strictly optional, Schimmel said, but anybody who wants to can bring an item for a baby. It could be clothing, diapers, baby powder and lotions or baby wipes. It doesnt have to be big and expensive. Now dont expect these items to be bundled up and shipped to Buckingham Palace, or Nottingham Cottage, where the parents-to-be stay when they are in London. The royal baby, said to be due in midJuly, will have plenty of clothing, toys, supplies and, of course, nappies to cover, as they might say in Britain, the little ones royal bum. The gifts people bring to the library will be taken to Hannahs Hope, a West Side shelter for women and children, to benet the mothers and newborns there. There are babies there that are a lot less fortunate, Schimmel said. Refreshments to be served at the Osterhout tea will likely include scones, cake as well the Eton Mess, which has a storied tradition. According to legend, the dessert originated at Eton College, where Prince William and Prince Harry went Diana Spencer to school, Schimmel said. They serve it every year, right before the big cricket match with Harrow, their biggest rival. The dessert was meant to be a cake, Schimmel said, but somebodys puppy got a little too enthusiastic and crushed the meringue. A creative cook came to the rescue by adding cream and berries to the crushed cake and mixing it all up for a deli- Queen Victoria cious, if somewhat messy result.

While royal watchers await the birth of Kate and Williams rst child, friends of the Osterhout Library will get together to sip tea, nibble on a traditional dessert known as an Eton Mess, and collect baby items for local newborns in need. We had a Downton Abbey tea (a few months ago) and somebody said, Gee, it would be nice to do this again, librarian Sandra Schimmel said, explaining how the Osterhout Library staff decidIF YOU GO What: Royal Baby Shower When: 6 p.m. Thursday Where: Osterhout Free Library, 71 S.

Heaven knows they need it. Answer: The late Lady Diana Spencer, who was Englands Princess of Wales at the time. A former English teacher, this royal leads the Special Olympics in her country. Answer: Princess Elena of Spain

Sports hero comes clean in new memoir


Jeff Pearlman
Newsday

When it comes to the medium that is the sports autobiography, our nation offers a long and storied history of nonsense. With rare exception, the process goes thusly: Step 1: Athlete signs contract to write an autobiography. Step 2: Athlete is paired with an actual writer, who agrees to take, oh, 10 percent of the payout. Step 3: Athlete allows writer two or three hourlong, sit-down interviews. They are recorded, then transcribed, then cobbled into a functional narrative. Step 4: Book lled with glorious stories of this game and that pitch and those touchdowns is released. Athlete makes a handful of contractually obligated appearances, poses for some pictures, lands three minutes on some mindless morning television show.

Step 5: Life goes on. The latest addition to the genre is Doc, the memoir former New York

Mets pitcher Dwight Gooden has written with Newsdays Ellis Henican.

And its (gasp!) outstanding. Let this be said again: Against all precedent, Doc is outstanding: a brutally honest, oft-painful retelling of the life of a one-time pitching phenom whose existence has been largely ruined by nearly three decades of on-again, off-again drug and alcohol abuse. If youre a baseball fan looking for warm stories about the Mets improbable 1986 World Series championship, this isnt your book. Gooden covers requisite on-eld turf (the 1985 Cy Young trophy, the Fall Classic, the nohitter, etc.), but with the enthusiasm of a Danny Heep at-bat. Its as if, after years of one lie after another after another, Gooden saw Doc as an opportunity to stop holding back and hiding behind excuses. In short, he seems to view this as therapy. Hence, Doc is neither

a fun nor breezy read. It does not paint Gooden in an especially positive light, and with each snort of cocaine the reader nds himself screaming, What the hell is wrong with you? Gooden admits to having been an awful husband and an even worse father. By the time one is ve chapters deep, Gooden isnt the four-time AllStar who won 194 career games. No, hes the screw-up who refuses to get his life in order. You want things to work out for Gooden, but you also learn that here is a man unwilling to help himself. The most painful segment in Doc comes in

a chapter titled Party Time, during which Gooden is introduced to cocaine a month before spring training 1986. He nds himself inside a room with two half-naked women and a line of the drug. Writes Gooden: Pretty soon, the three of us were all doing vodka shots, as I joined them on the bed. Then the coke came back out. They certainly seemed to be having fun with it. When they asked me again, I was in. I dragged my nger along the credit card, picking up some coke dust, then put it on my tongue. My face got numb. It felt weird but also good. From this moment on,

Gooden is less a baseball player, more a junkie. Whenever faced with a choice between sport or family and cocaine, he picks cocaine. Where did all that money go? he asks. I guess I know the answer to that. I sniffed a lot up my nose. Odds are, Doc doesnt sell especially well. Gooden, now 48 and off drugs for two years, hasnt thrown a major-league pitch in 13 seasons, and his endless cycle of troubles makes him more Lindsay Lohan than Meryl Streep. And yet, one gets the feeling this isnt about reaching a bestseller list. This is about coming clean.

CHICAGO In the seven years since a motorcycle accident left him paralyzed from the neck down, Ben Trockman has stopped paying attention to stares from strangers, or at least hes stopped being bothered by them. I tell people theyre staring because of how tremendously good-looking I am, said Trockman, 24, who is studying public relations at the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville, Ind. Though hes learned to use humor to handle all manner of awkward encounters, Trockman wishes people would put their nervous attention to better use. They could say hello. Or strike up a conversation about baseball. He welcomes questions about life in his power wheelchair, or how he ended up there. I would so much rather someone say, What happened to you? than stare from a distance and then walk away, Trockman said. It makes me feel better, it makes them feel better and that person will learn a little that day. Though people with disabilities have become increasingly integrated into mainstream society, thanks to disability legislation and technological advances that have made it possible to ourish in an able-bodied world, they continue to be stared at by uncomfortable strangers even some relatives and friends who dont know how to behave around people who may look, walk, talk, think, see, hear or get around differently from the norm. At the heart of the problem is that people dont acknowledge the person

rst; they acknowledge the disability, Michael Carmody said. He cofounded the nonprot Opportunity Knocks in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park, Ill., to provide afterschool programs for young adults with developmental disabilities from ag football to leadership projects to chip away at the wall of misconceptions that separates people with disabilities from a mainstream that assumes them incapable of doing things. Carmody, whose youngest brother John, 26, has Down syndrome, welcomes every ignorant encounter be it baby-talking or discussing John as though he werent standing right there as an opportunity to demonstrate, by example, how one should behave around people with disabilities, which is quite simple. Treat them like you would treat yourself, Carmody said. Patricia Wright, national director of autism services at Easter Seals, which provides services to children and adults with disabilities and special needs, said respectfully addressing people with disabilities as competent beings is paramount to the well-being of both the individuals and society. If we instantly think, I cant interact with this person, that eliminates them from the community, she said. But well-intentioned people can also misstep.

Enjoy a theme park like a VIP: no waits,no hassles


John Seewer
Associated Press

Thats a lot of standing in long lines for roller coasters, juggling show schedules and guring out when and where to eat. But theres a way to eliminate the stress of making the annual trek to Disney, Universal, Six Flags and other popular parks. Many now have VIP tours with perks usually reserved for celebrities private tour guides, no waits for the biggest attractions, reserved seating at shows and parades along with behind-thescenes peeks at places normally off limits. All of this, of course, comes at a steep price. The VIP tours at Six Flags parks in New Jersey and near Los Angeles come in at $299 per person. Cedar Point in Ohio charges $395 apiece for a full day of perks that include front-of-the-line access to its 16 roller coasters. Disney Worlds VIP tour starts at $315 per hour for up to 10 people. Time is money, and when youre waiting in line, youre wasting money, said Joey Ray, of Sparks, Nev., whose vacations usually revolve around theme parks. The ability to bypass the lines means he can see everything in a day instead of staying an extra night or two at a park. Ray said hes gone on a few of the VIP tours, including at Universal Studios Hollywood where visitors get to see the studios costume and prop departments and walk through the courtyard in the backlot where Back to the Future was lmed. Just seeing that was worth the splurge, he said. Those in the themepark industry say there are two distinct types of visitors now those who closely watch what they spend and those who are willing to shell out more but are limited by time. Gone are the days when everyone pays the same price for a themepark ticket and waits in the same lines. Everyone is not equal anymore, said Dennis Spiegel, a theme-park consultant and president of International Theme Park Services Inc. in Cincinnati. His company found in a survey just completed that the money parks make from VIP tours is small but growing. It also showed that VIP visitors are moving twice as fast through the parks with front-of-line access and that about 70 percent wouldnt come back without it. It became very apparent that this is something thats going to continue to grow in the future, said Spiegel, who noted that parks recognize the potential for ill will when guests with high-priced tickets sidestep lines full of paying customers. Their solution now is to design new rides so that people wont notice when they are being bypassed. Disney was one of the few theme-park operators offering the personalized tours up until the past 10 years. Now they can be found in regional parks including Hersheypark in Hershey, and Kings Island near Cincinnati. Six Flags parks nationwide have several levels of VIP passes depending on location. At Six Flags Great America near Chicago, the four-hour express tour is $225 per person (with a minimum of four people) while the

ultimate tour for $400 lasts all day and gets you unlimited games, food and a cabana at the water park. The biggest perk is doing it all with no waiting, said park spokesman Brandon Bruce. You can denitely cover a lot of ground, he said. Tracy Bates, a roller-coaster fan from Ridgeville, S.C., said he has shelled out for the VIP tours when hes making a one-time visit to a theme park or when crowds are heavy. His wife, Charlene, doesnt do roller coasters, so skipping the lines is a big bonus. I hate to leave her sitting while Im waiting in line for an hour, he said. The other benet is that their personal guide is always willing to take photos, he said. You dont end up with a bunch of pictures of just one of you, he said. While nearly all of theme-park VIP tours allow guests to skip the lines entirely, the ones at Disney dont they still must use the Fastpass lines available to everyone. What they do get is a personal concierge who can monitor wait times across the parks, make dining reservations, arrange for the best seats at shows and make sure everyone in the group can get autographs and

Canzler wreaks havoc for RailRiders in DH


MOOSIC If it wasnt for Russ Canzler, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre could have had an easy doubleheader sweep on Saturday at PNC Field. The Hazleton native combined to go 6-for-9 in two games with a three-run home run, two doubles, four RBI and three runs scored against his hometown team as his Norfolk squad earned a split against the RailRiders. SWB won the rst game 6-4 in 11 innings before falling in the nightcap 5-2. In the rst game, the RailRiders held a 4-1 lead in the seventh until Canzler crushed a three-run home run to even the score 4-4 and eventually force extra innings. But his performance in that game would be forgotten because the star of the game was a RailRider making his Triple-A debut. Casey Stevenson, who joined the squad just a few hours before the contest, blasted a pair of home runs, including a walk-off, two-run shot to make a grand debut. The 25-year-old inelder equaled his home run total from two previous levels. In addition to being a gamewinning shot, Stevenson said the second homer meant more because it made up for not being able to work a fundamental play in the ninth. He was called upon to sacrice a pair of runners, but couldnt get the bunt down and See RIDERS | 16C

Police again search home of Patriots Hernandez


The Associated Press NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. State police ofcers and dogs searched the home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez again Saturday as they continue to investigate the killing of a semipro football player whose body was found about a mile away. The search of Hernandezs sprawling home and vehicle in North Attleboro began in the afternoon and lasted for more than three hours. Locksmiths and several ofcers were involved, including one with a crowbar. Detectives and uniformed ofcers who searched the home, its backyard and playhouse did not comment to reporters on what they were looking for or what caused them to return to the house located not far from where the Patriots practice and about a mile from where a jogger found the body of Odin Lloyd on Monday. Lloyd family members said Friday that he had been dating the sister of Hernandezs ancee for about two years. They said the two men were friends who were together the night Lloyd died. Authorities have ruled Lloyds death a homicide. A spokeswoman for the Bristol District Attorneys ofce declined to comment on the investigation Saturday. A state police spokesman referred questions to the district attorneys ofce. An attorney for Hernandez has said he would not comment on the searches. Three search warrants were issued in the investigation earlier last week but have not been returned, meaning theyre not public. No arrest warrants were led in state courts by the time court closed Friday, Attleboro District Court clerk magistrate Mark E. Sturdy said. Courts were closed Saturday. Police previously searched in and around the home as they try to gure out who killed Lloyd. Police in nearby Providence, R.I., said they had assisted Massachusetts state police and North Attleborough police with activity related to the Hernandez investigation at a strip club named Club Desire. It was unclear if they believed Lloyd and Hernandez might have been at the club in the days before Lloyd died. Patriots spokesman Stacey James has said the team does not anticipate commenting publicly during the police investigation. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was waiting for the legal process to take its course. The Patriots drafted Hernandez out of Florida in 2010. Since then, he has combined with Rob Gronkowski to form one of the top tight end duos in the NFL.

Chicago Blackhawks right wing Patrick Kane (88) scores against Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask (40) in the second period of Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday in Chicago.

Kane lifts Hawks


Seidenberg. Kane, who was to the left of the net, picked up the spinning puck and tucked it past Tuukka Rask into the lower left corner of the net. All that happened after Jonathan Toews muscled past Milan Lucic to carry the puck deep into the Boston zone. The Blackhawks pushed the pace in the second, outshooting Boston 11-5 in the period and igniting the crowd in the process. Kane really had them roaring when he struck again just over ve minutes in. The puck ipped out to him on the right side and he buried it from close range after Bryan Bickell got stopped from the left wing, picked up the rebound and skated around the net. That gave Kane three goals in the past two games. For Boston, things didnt get much better after that. Patrice Bergeron played just two shifts in the period and skated gingerly to the bench. When asked about that during a break in play, coach Claude Julien wouldnt provide any details. Lets just say right now were going to give him some time, he told NBC. Corey Crawford did his job in goal for Chicago with 16 saves through the rst two periods after getting

CHICAGO Patrick Kane scored two goals, and the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Boston Bruins 3-1 in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup nal on Saturday night. The rst championship series between Original Six franchises since 1979 has been nothing short of thrilling, with only one game being decided in regulation and the teams splitting the rst four. With Kane leading the way, the Blackhawks were looking good in this one. He now has nine goals in the postseason after scoring late in the rst period and early in the second. Zdeno Chara scored 3:40 into the third period for the Bruins to cut the Blackhawks lead in half. Dave Bolland added an empty-netter for the Blackhawks with 17 seconds remaining. Game 6 is in Boston on Monday. Both teams missed some chances in the early going. But Kane nally gave the Blackhawks a 1-0 lead with 2:33 left in the rst, after a shot by Johnny Oduya closing in from the left point sheared the blade off the stick of Boston defenseman Dennis

beaten ve times to his glove side during Wednesdays 6-5 overtime victory. Rask stopped 17 shots. Boston outhit Chicago 38-19 even though the Blackhawks indicated they would go right at the Bruins Chara, just as they did in Game 4. David Krejci, Lucic and Johnny Boychuk each had ve hits. Toews hit the post just under four minutes into the game, and Bostons Nathan Horton hit the crossbar right after that. The Bruins had another chance midway through the rst period when Jaromir Jagr came out of a scrum along the boards but got stopped from the edge of the crease. Rask spread out and made a neat save with his chest or shoulder late in the period to stop a shot by Patrick Sharp closing in from the left circle. Marian Hossa was in the lineup for Chicago as expected after missing the morning skate and practice on Friday. He was scratched from Game 3 because of an upper body injury but did play in Game 4. The Bruins also had center Carl Soderberg in the lineup over Kaspars Daugavins, another adjustment during arguably the wildest nal in years. Both teams have been doing See HAWKS | 16C

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. No parent here has rushed onto a playing eld to jump a referee who made an unpopular call. No adult has gotten angry and slugged or pushed a coach or a young player, as has happened elsewhere. Nor have there been any of those embarrassing sideline brawls you sometimes see posted on online video sites. At least nobodys admitting to it. Still, parent behavior in this quiet suburb north of Chicago has been questionable enough to cause the park district ofcials to post new signs at ball elds with what you might call a few gentle reminders. This is a game being played by children, the signs in the Buffalo Grove Park District begin, with the words game and children highlighted in bold letters. If they win or lose every game of the season, it will not impact what college they attend or their future potential income.. The campaign, which began this month, is relatively low-key. You might not even notice the small blue signs if you werent standing right by them. But they speak to a growing movement in youth sports aimed at reining in parents who, many say, are too involved, too competitive and in need of a little perspective. I just want to get back to what I was brought up with as a child and thats, Let the kids play, says Dan Schimmel, the park districts executive director. Elsewhere, some youth sports leagues are requiring parents to sign codes of conduct or recite pledges before games, promising in front of their children that theyll behave. If they slip up, they might be pulled aside for a conversation or kicked out of a game if a warning does no good. Other leagues occasionally have silent games, where parents and sometimes even coaches can only offer encouragement or cheer and clap, but cant direct the young players or say or shout anything too negative. Buffalo Grove ofcials say some have questioned whether this is just another attempt to coddle children. Some wonder: Shouldnt a young player learn to take criticism? And whats wrong with a little competition, anyway? But this, say coaches, leagues and even some parents and kids, is about parent behavior that increasingly goes way over the line and interferes with a kids ability to enjoy something thats supposed to be fun. Weve all seen that person on the sidelines and were thinking, Are they really going there? Really? says Brian Sanders, president of i9 Sports Corp., a national franchiser of youth leagues and camps See BAD NEWS | 16C

Driver dies in 24 Hours of Le Mans race after a spinout


It was her specic request that Simonsens team, Aston Martin Racing, continue the worlds most renowned endurance race in honor of the Dane. Just 10 minutes into the race, Simonsen spun and skidded into the barrier at the Tertre Rouge corner where cars typically reach speeds of up to 105 mph. The 34-yearold Simonsen was taken to a hospital, where he died of his injuries, race organizers said. The violence of the impact showed as a tire from Simonsens car rolled on the track while a door hung wide open. The race was held up for nearly an hour to repair the guard rail. Tragically, and despite the best efforts of the emergency services in attendance, Allans injuries proved fatal, Aston Martin said in a statement. Simonsens death marked the rst driver fatality since 1997 when Sebastien Enjolras was killed in pre-qualifying. The last driver fatality during the race was Jo Gartner in 1986. Simonsen was participating for the seventh time at the endurance race, which is won by the team that completes the most laps in 24 hours with up to three drivers alternating. He nished second in the GT2 class at Le Mans three years ago. He clocked the fastest time in

Allan Simonsens death after a spinout cast a pall over the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The race still had more than 23 hours to go, but there was no call to stop it on Saturday after the rst driver fatality in 16 years. Simonsens partner Carina, the mother to their daughter born last year, made sure of that.

qualifying on Thursday in the GTE-Am class. Jean Todt, the FIA president, and Pierre Fillon, president of the Automobile Club de lOuest which organizes the race, paid tribute to Simonsen. Allan was an extremely talented and experienced sportscar driver who had raced in every corner of the world and was highly respected by his peers and his team, they said in a joint statement.

CyCLing SCEnE

Going the distance just takes a little preparation


jsoprano@timesleader.com

Joe Soprano

Paul Zbiek has learned a lot of interesting things while riding his bike. Just not all of them have much to do with cycling. I know where every port-a-potty is to Harrisburg in the east and to State College in the west, Zbiek said Wednesday night at Sicklers Bike and Sport Shop in Exeter. Zbiek picked up that little bit of information while racking up more miles than I care to count as an ultra marathon cyclist. He was at Sicklers on Wednesday to present a program entitled, So You Want to Do a Century. And while Wednesdays nice weather had most cyclists out on their bikes instead of at Zbieks presentation, he still had plenty to offer. For instance, those port-a-pottys he is so familiar with are a little fewer and farther between this year. According to Zbiek, budget cuts have caused the state to put fewer out this year, especially at boat launches. He also had plenty to say other than where to nd the most convenient restroom. Surprisingly, he said getting ready to ride 100 miles isnt as hard as a task as it seems. If you are turning out 20- or 30-mile rides on a regular basis now, you are only 10 weeks away from be ready to complete a century. Just take your longest ride and each week add

10 percent (more distance) to it, Zbiek said. By Week 8, you should be up to 75 or 85 miles. At that point, you are ready to ride a century. Its that easy. Zbiek assured me that even someone in as marginal shape as I am can complete a century if I just follow that simple formula. You just have to be really committed to making that increase each week, Zbiek said. He should know. He has ridden more than 100,000 miles and completed over 400 Ultra Marathon Cycling Association certied

centuries. In 2004, he was the UMCA Mileage Challenge champion with over 60 century rides. Thats two months worth of 100 milers. In August, Zbiek will attempt to ride a Metric Millennium over six days as a fundraiser. Thats 1,000 kilometers or more than 621 miles to you and me. He also suggested that if you are going to take a shot at a century, its a good idea to get a heart rate monitor and learn how to use it. It gives you a heads up that something might be going wrong before you start feeling bad, Zbiek

said. If you see your heart rate rise unexpectedly, he said, you can expect bad things. Its really helpful (to have one), Zbiek said. Its also really helpful to remember to ride out at your own pace, he said. Dont get caught up in trying to match the effort of riders out to set a torrid pace. Be careful at the start, Zbiek cautioned rst-time century riders. Its going to be a group start and their are going to be a lot of hammers there. If you try to keep up with those hammers, they are going to end up

scraping you off the pavement. How did Zbiek become such an expert on longdistance riding. It was a simple formula. His job as a professor of geography at Kings College leaves him with the summers off. And since his emphasis is on Pennsylvania geography, what better way to experience what he teaches than from the saddle of his bicycle. At least, he can make sure his students know where all those port-apottys are.

Brewers 2, Braves 0

PHILADELPHIA Pinchhitter Kevin Frandsen homered leading off the bottom of the ninth inning to lift Philadelphia over New York 8-7 on Saturday after the Mets wiped out a six-run decit. Helped by some shaky Phillies defense, New York scored two runs in the top of the ninth off closer Jonathon Papelbon (2-0) to tie it. Ryan Howard homered twice and drove in four runs. Michael Young also homered for Philadelphia, which led 7-1 through six innings. Jordany Valdespin homered in the ninth off Papelbon, who has blown three of his last four save chances after converting his rst 13 this season. Frandsen hit a long home run on the second pitch from Carlos Torres (0-1). Phillies starter Jonathan Pettibone allowed one run in six innings before leaving with a back injury.

WASHINGTON Jhoulys Chacin pitched seven shutout innings and hit an RBI single, and the Colorado Rockies snapped their ve-game losing streak by beating the Washington Nationals. DJ LeMahieu hit his rst home run and Michael Cuddyers RBI single in the rst extended his hitting streak to 20 games, the longest active streak in the majors and tied for the longest this season. Nolan Arenado also went deep for Colorado. Chacin (6-3) held Washington to ve hits with one walk and three strikeouts to win his third straight start. Making his major league debut, Rockies outelder Corey Dickerson doubled in his rst two at-bats and drove in a run during a three-run rst inning.
Giants 2, Marlins 1, 11 Innings

PHOENIX Jason Kubel hit a two-run single in the bottom of the ninth inning to rally the Arizona Diamondbacks past Aroldis Chapman and the Cincinnati Reds. Jay Bruces second home run of the game gave the Reds a 3-2 lead in the top of the ninth. Paul Goldschmidt singled past Joey Votto at rst base leading off the bottom half before Chapman (3-3) issued consecutive walks to Miguel Montero and Cody Ross. With the ineld drawn in, Kubel singled over second base for his third career game-ending hit.
Interleague Astros 4, Cubs 3

SAN FRANCISCO Hector Sanchez singled home the winning run in the 11th inning and San Francisco snapped a nine-game home losing streak to Miami. Giants right elder Hunter Pence made a diving catch to rob Placido Polanco of a likely go-ahead single to end the 11th. The Giants beat the Marlins at home for the rst time since July 28, 2010.

CHICAGO Ronny Cedenos squeeze bunt scored Justin Maxwell with the tiebreaking run in the ninth inning to lead Houston over Chicago. J.D. Martinez tied the game with a three-run homer in the sixth for the Astros. Jose Cisnero (2-0) pitched two scoreless innings for the win, escaping a bases-loaded jam in the eighth. Jose Veras earned his 15th save in 18 chances. Maxwell hit a leadoff double in the ninth against Kevin Gregg (2-1) and moved to third on Matt Dominguezs sacrice. Cedeno followed with another sacrice bunt, putting the Astros ahead.

Wells breaks out of slump for Yankees


The Associated Press

FRIDAYS LATE BOXES

NEW YORK Vernon Wells broke out of his big slump with a pinch-hit, threerun double, and the New York Yankees rallied to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-5 Saturday. Wells was in a 9-for-87 slide that landed him on the bench the past two days, with rookie outelder Zoilo Almonte starting in his place. But with the Yankees trailing 5-4 in the seventh inning, Wells batted for No. 9 hitter Chris Stewart with the bases loaded and two outs. Wells clutch hit got CC

Sabathia (8-5) off the hook after he allowed ve runs in seven innings. Mariano Rivera worked a scoreless ninth for his 26th save.
Blue Jays 4, Orioles 2

TORONTO Jose Bautista hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning and the Toronto Blue Jays won their 10th straight game. Maicer Izturis hit a solo homer in the fth and Bautista had a two-run drive for Toronto, on its longest winning streak since a 10-game

run late in 2008. The Blue Jays, who are 14-4 this month, are one victory from matching the franchise record. Toronto had 11-game winning streaks in 1987 and 1998. The Blue Jays led 2-1 heading into the eighth but Taylor Teagarden tied it with a homer off reliever Darren Oliver (3-1). Miguel Gonzalez (5-3) allowed three runs and three hits in 7 1-3 innings.
White Sox 3, Royals 2

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Alejandro De Aza drove in

Jordan Danks with a sacrice y in the ninth inning, sending the White Sox to a victory over the Royals. Jesse Crain (2-1) got through a shaky eighth inning for the White Sox, putting a runner on third with one out and then leaving him there. Closer Addison Reed handled a perfect ninth for his 21st save. Aaron Crow (3-3) was the loser. Crain extended his club record with his 29th consecutive scoreless appearance.

Bulldogs, UCLA set up another SEC-Pac-12 CWS championship


AP Sports Writer

Eric Olson

OMAHA, Neb. Its the Southeastern Conference vs. the Pac12 for the second straight year in the nals of the College World Series. Mississippi State and UCLA will square off in the best-of-three starting Monday at TD Ameritrade Park after each went unbeaten in winning its bracket. UCLA survived a rocky ninth inning to eliminate No. 1 national seed North Carolina with a 4-1 win on Friday night. The Bulldogs got a three-run homer from Hunter Renfroe and defeated Oregon State 4-1 in the afternoon. Mississippi State beat Oregon State twice in bracket play a fact that did not go unnoticed by Bruins coach John Savage. Oregon State won two of three against the Bruins in Los Angeles while winning the Pac-12 championship. To beat Oregon State, we know how good Oregon State is. Theyre good, Savage said. And to do what they did against them twice, it goes to show that theyre a little better than them. So were going to respect the game. Were going to respect the opponent. Were going to respect the next two days in terms of preparation,

getting ourselves ready and do what we do. The Bruins (47-17) are in the nals for the second time, and rst since getting swept by South Carolina in 2010. Mississippi State (51-18) is in the nals for the rst time. Each team will be

playing for its rst national championship in baseball. I know it sounds crazy, but our kids just think something good is going to happen and, by the way, our coaches do, too, Bulldogs coach John Cohen said. I think these guys are on a little bit of a roll for sure.

Three atop leaderboard at Travelers Championship


a 65, and Charley Hoffman were all at 10-under par heading into Sundays nal round at the TPC of River Highlands. Watson shot an even-par 70. Justin Rose, less than a week after his U.S. Open victory, is 7-under par and in a tie for seventh place after a second straight 68. Watson made three birdies on his opening nine holes and was ahead by four shots after the third. But bogeys on Nos. 13, 15 and 17 brought the 2011 Masters champion back to the eld. Watson, who won the 2010 Travelers, is trying to become the seventh player to win this event at least twice. Arnold Palmer and Phil Mickelson have also done it. After shooting a 61 in the opening round, Hoffman struggled and shot 73 on Friday. But he bounced back with a 66 Saturday in a round that included ve birdies. Hoffman, who has won twice previously on the PGA Tour, was leading the Travelers last year Bubba Watson chips out of a bunker on the 17th hole during the when he hit his tee shot CROMWELL, Conn. Bubba Watson made three bogeys in his last six holes Saturday to help create a three-way tie after three rounds at the Travelers Championship. Watson, Graham DeLaet, who tied for the low round of the day with on the par-4 17th into the water. He nished in a tie for second. He said he doesnt expect a similar result this year. Obviously, if I get on 17 tee, Id be lying to say Im not going to think about that tee shot, Hoffman said. But Im a much more mature, better player than I was a year ago and dont feel uncomfortable on that tee shot. DeLaet is playing this week in New England but many of his thoughts are about his native Canada. The heavy rain and ooding in Alberta forced the PGA Tour Canada to cancel its event this week. DeLaet, the 2009 Canadian Tour player of the year, has pledged to donate $1,000 for every birdie he makes this weekend and $2,500 for every eagle to help the relief effort. straight birdies and eight pull into a three-way tie ChAmPions Tour overall to shoot a 6-under with Ernie Els of South GLENVIEW, Ill. 65 and join a group of Africa and Swedens Craig Stadler grabbed the four players atop the Alex Noren atop the lead at the Encompass leaderboard at 10 under leaderboard of the BMW Championship on after the second round of International Open.

CRAIN GAME
Our weekly look at the work of RailRiders president Rob Crain, who has given us back our baseball with a side order of promotions and entertainment. BEST OF THE WEEK: Five games at home in three days gave the RailRiders plenty of opportunity to give the fans some extras, and they did. We already told you about the exciting Bat Giveaway and Cowboy Monkey Rodeo split doubleheader Saturday. By being a split doubleheader, those folks with fears of monkeys could bring their kids to get a bat during the day. Monkeys with fears of large wooden clubs could perform at night without fear of the bats. Cowboy Monkey Rodeo is the 21st century San Diego Chicken, so we hope everyone went out and enjoyed the show. And if you missed it, hopefully your child was able to acquire a nice wood bat during the day game at the stadium. MISSED OPPORTUNITY: The Tides were in as summer began and yet there were no beach days? Cmon now! Were looking for puns and fun. Thats OK, though, because the team had its youth baseball camp last week and it surprised the youngsters with an appearance by Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson. Its notable that Mr. October came to town again as the organization hasnt always felt like part of the Yankees family. A number of youngsters and their excited parents took to social media to declare their joy over the experience, and thats what having a minor-league organization in the area is all about. COMING UP: This week, the thrill and the RailRiders will be gone. The RailRiders are home today against Norfolk for Family FUNday, which includes autographs before the game and kids run the bases after. Then the Riders are on the road until July 4, when they host Buffalo. Needless to say, a fireworks show will follow the Independence Day game against the Bisons. But then its USA! USA! USA! Fireworks shows will also be featured after the Friday, July 5 game against Buffalo and the Saturday, July 6 game against Lehigh Valley.

THE WEEK AHEAD

MOOSIC He couldnt help to notice as New York players got hurt and members of the Scranton/WilkesBarre RailRiders got called up. That couldve been Hazletons Russ Canzler on the Yankees current roster after being part of the teams 40-man roster for about a month in the offseason before being designated for assignment and latching on with Baltimore. Id be lying to you if I said I wasnt paying attention to it because my dads a Yankee fan so I get the updates all the time, said Canzler, who visited his hometown over the weekend when his Norfolk Tides played at PNC Field. As far as my career, personally I feel like Ive wasted a lot of time in the past with worrying about what wouldve happened if I did this different or if this wouldve worked out differently for me. Baseball is such a game of uncertainty we dont know where well be tomorrow. And I learned that this offseason. Something could happen with the Orioles tomorrow where I could be up there with them and I wouldnt be thinking about a situation where I would be with a different team. But I know the Yankees have denitely been injury prone this year and like I said I hear it from my dad every day. Canzler played with current Yankee outelder and former RailRider Thomas Neal last year when both were called up to play in Cleveland with the Indians. Hes also been teammates with pitcher Chris Bootcheck in Durham. Bootcheck, who was having a tremendous campaign for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre,

saw time with the Yankees before getting designated for assignment last week. He has since cleared waivers and was outrighted to Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre. Theyre two great guys who handle themselves professionally and can play the game pretty well, Canzler said. So can Canzler. That was evident last year when he played nearly every day for the Indians as a September call-up. In the 26 games he played, he racked up 25 hits in 93 at-bats (.269 batting average) and bombed three home runs. More importantly, as he was let go

BASEBALL IS such a game of uncertainty. We dont know where well be tomorrow.

Russ Canzler

four different times by three teams in the offseason, his showing in the majors caught the attention of others. The 27-year-old was technically part of the Indians, the Blue Jays, the Indians again and the Yankees all in about two months before joining the Orioles. By the fourth or fth time I started to get down in the dumps, but (my family) said Hey youre getting claimed by teams so that means somebody out there is denitely interested in you and thinks you can help them at the major league level, he added. Thats what I try to keep in mind here while Im here every day to get better so if that phone call comes Im 100 percent prepared to take on the big leagues again. With the turnover of players the RailRiders have gone through this season only seven players on the active roster entering the weekend were on the Opening Day roster a

staple like Canzler would have been welcomed. He certainly would have enjoyed the opportunity as well of playing in a reconstructed stadium near his hometown. Especially since he grew up as a fan of Derek Jeter and collected Yankee paraphernalia during his childhood. Yeah it wouldve been nice to be here in Scranton and play in front of family, but Im still fortunate enough to be in this league, Canzler added. And when we go to Lehigh Valley Im close enough to home where I see a lot of family and when we come here to Scranton. Hometown isnt the only connection in Moosic for Canzler. Had he been with the RailRiders not only would he have been teammates with Neal and Bootcheck, but with Dan Johnson as well. Johnson won the 2010 International League MVP award playing for Durham. Canzler won it the next year when both were teammates for the Bulls. When we played together in Durham he was a real good teammate of mine and gave me a lot of advice, helped me out, gave me some good pointers, Canzler said of Johnson as the two chatted and caught up a bit prior to the series opener on Friday. He likes to rag on me that I won the International League MVP the year after he did. A 2004 Hazleton Area grad, Canzler has always stepped up his play as the season gets longer. He began Saturday hitting .261 with 10 home runs and 39 RBI for Norfolk at the Tides midway point of the season. Hes still on pace to equal or surpass numbers he put up in several categories during his MVP season and many of his numbers would lead current RailRiders. Even if he doesnt pick up more hardware this season, he could make the teams that passed on him ve months ago regret their moves if they havent already.

A scheduling oddity, a day off and a makeup game are including on this weeks slate as the RailRiders head to Syracuse and Pawtucket for a 10-game road trip in nine days following a day off on Monday. Syracuse Chiefs The RailRiders began play on Saturday 4.5 games ahead of the last-place Chiefs in the I.L. North standings. Lucky for SWB it has played well against Syracuse this season going 5-2. More good news is that a doubleheader will be played on Wednesday at Alliance Bank Stadium to make up a game postponed in April. Thats positives because the RailRiders have an 11-3 record in twinbills this season before Saturdays action. While the RailRiders have been in a downward spin of late with an 8-12 record in June and dropping 27 of their last 39 games since mid-May, the Chiefs havent fared any better. In fact, Syracuse has been in a worst stretch losing nine of their last 11 and 14 of their last 19 games before Saturday nights game at Gwinnett. In Syracuses 14 losses in June the team has scored 45 runs (3.2 per game) while opponents have nearly doubled that output scoring 82 (an average of 5.8 per game). Pawtucket Red Sox The rivals will square off for the first time since the first four games of the season at PNC Field in which the PawSox swept all four to ruin the RailRiders opening festivities. The defending International League champion Red Sox now host Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for a rare fivegame series starting on Friday at McCoy Stadium. Pawtucket took over first-place in the division from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the defending division champions, in that season-opening series and have only spent two and half weeks outside of the division lead since. The PawSox currently lead second-place Lehigh Valley by 4.5 games before play began on Saturday. During the only series between the two teams, Pawtucket held the RailRiders to just 12 runs in the four games. The team has been pitching solidly all season currently with the second-lowest ERA in the league at 3.65. Offensively, they began play on Saturday second in the I.L. in runs scored tallying 368.

England Club and reigning U.S. Open champion who wants to give Britain its rst male title winner at Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936. Federer and Nadal could meet in the quarternals, with the winner potentially getting Murray in the seminals, because all three wound up on the same side of the draw. Djokovic, meanwhile, is on the other half and at most would need to beat only one of that other trio to earn the championship. Some people would say that I was lucky with the draw, Djokovic said Saturday. But look, you know, its a Grand Slam, so I dont think that there is any easy way to the title. Williams, though, stands alone atop the womens game at the moment. Her serve, which she can consistently hit at

more than 120 mph (190 kph), is clearly unrivaled, and she leads the tour this season in aces, service games won, break points saved and rst serve points won. Her return is terric, too, and Williams leads the way in rst serve return points won, while ranking second in return games won. I dont see a weakness, three-time Wimbledon champion John McEnroe said. Shes playing the best tennis of her career. Shes not only in the best

place Ive ever seen, I think shes the best player thats ever lived. I said that a while ago, but shes cementing it in everyones mind. Shes just a level above anyone. Theres no doubt about it. Chris Evert also knows a thing or two about winning Grand Slam titles. Her total of 18 is tied with Martina Navratilova for the fourth-most in history; its also two more than Williams has right now, but even Evert acknowledges that gap probably will not last much longer.

Staal trade did not set precedent for Letang


Pittsburgh Tribune Review

Jordan Staal was traded at the NHL Entry Draft a year ago. That was no precedent for the Penguins dealings with defenseman Kris Letang. This is different than the Staal negotiation, general manager Ray Shero said Thursday.

But I dont have a crystal ball. Shero said there is no timetable to settle anything with Letang at the Entry Draft on June 30 or by the start of free-agent season July 5. Letang is in a similar spot to Staal from last

June: set to enter the nal year of his current contract, permitted by the labor contract to agree on a new deal and projected to receive a big raise. Unlike Staal last season, Letang has not informed the Penguins he is intent on playing out

the nal year of his deal. That much was reiterated to Shero by Letangs agent, Kent Hughes, during a meeting Wednesday in Boston. More meetings with Hughes are planned because the Penguins have not ruled out keeping Letang.

Shining a light on spotlighting issue


With a chocolate milk in one hand and a spotlight in the other, I eagerly scanned the dark roadside for an open field. For a young boy eager to turn 12 and Tom get my first hunting Venesky license, spotlighting was my outlet during the years before I was old enough to hunt. My father knew it, and he patiently drove the car for hours several nights each week, as I shed a beam of light on every field we passed. We had a routine. Around 7 p.m., my father and I would jump in the car for our daily spotlighting trip. Wed stop off at a gas station, which is where I always had to get a chocolate milk for the trip, and then head out to a few remote areas dirt roads and farm fields mostly and see the wildlife that ventured out after dark. With a flick of the switch, the spotlight beam would pierce the darkness and Id sweep it across a field looking for eyes. My father and I would count the does and marvel at the big bucks. We occasionally saw piebald deer and several times we watched two bucks fight unaware that they were literally in the spotlight. I learned a lot about deer behavior on those spotlighting trips. I watched how bucks during the rut would react when I put down the window and gently blew on a grunt call. Sometimes the call would get a buck so incensed that it would charge to the car, stopping several feet away looking for the source of the grunts. With my spotlight, I watched how does interacted with their fawns, taking note of how deer seemed to prefer fields with a specific variety of grasses or legumes, and how weather conditions limited movement. Oftentimes, we would see more than deer on those spotlighting trips. Bears were a special treat. Raccoons, skunks and opossums were quite common, and occasionally wed spot a coyote or fox. Those spotlighting trips of my childhood were as educational as they were entertaining. It was a great father/son time and spotlighting fueled my passion for hunting and the outdoors. It was a good thing but one that some would like to end. Several officials with the Pennsylvania Game Commission have been discussing banning or restricting spotlighting and I cant really blame them. While it would be a shame to deprive todays kids of the excitement that spotlighting offers, there are plenty of people abusing the activity and using a spotlight to shoot deer at night. Thats what the PGC wants to curtail, although a spotlighting ban would have to be implemented by the state legislature. Poachers, it seems, are as plentiful as legitimate spotlighters. Virtually anywhere in the state, there are stories about a big buck that was shot at night or, worst of all, the killing sprees that occur when poachers drive around shooting any deer they catch with their spotlight. And while our wildlife conservation officers and their deputies do a good job of nabbing them, there is plenty of poaching that goes on undetected. A ban on spotlighting would make it easier to catch poachers. Right now, if a beam of light sweeps across a dark field, theres no way of knowing if its someone spotlighting for enjoyment or a poacher looking for a deer to shoot. If spotlighting was banned, that uncertainty would be eliminated. Still, its a harsh consequence. Right now, spotlighting is allowed until 11 p.m. Its illegal to spotlight during the two-week deer season and lights cant be cast on livestock, houses and buildings. Maybe a restriction is needed instead of a ban. Eleven oclock is pretty late, so maybe spotlighting should be legal until 10 p.m. That would give deer trying to feed in the fields a break, and it would also increase the window in which WCOs can watch for poaching activity. And, best of all, a child can still jump in the car with their father a chocolate milk in one hand and a spotlight in the other and get a firsthand look at wildlife after dark.

BRAINERD, Minn. No state can rival the variety of shing Minnesota offers, whether for walleyes, smallmouth or largemouth bass, muskies, pansh, trout and even northern pike. Yes, western states have productive trout rivers, and Alaska is a wonderful destination for salmon, rainbows, grayling and pike. But to experience great shing in Minnesota, you neednt worry about crossing private land to reach good trout water, as you sometimes do out West. And you dont need a oatplane, as you often do in Alaska. In many cases in Minnesota, you dont even need a boat. I was reminded of this the other evening as I pulled on a pair of waders and stepped from shore into a lake not far from this north-central Minnesota tourist town. The sky was overcast, the air chilled. And intermittently during the next few hours, rain would dimple the lakes surface. But the largemouth bass that my shing partner, Bill Marchel, and I were seeking wouldnt be disturbed by the inclement weather that has prevailed this spring and early summer. Ill start right there, Bill said, arching a Scum Frog toward a hole in the vegetation and generalized slop that extended a couple hundred yards from shore. Made of soft plastic, and shaped like a frog, the Scum Frog is rigged weedless and is one of a dozen or so go-to baits bass anglers keep in their arsenals. Built to oat on a lake or river surface while being retrieved, this style of bait can on a good day trigger explosive hits, as largemouth bass erupt from their shallow haunts to gobble what they believe is a movable feast. Scum Frogs or their reasonable facsimiles (of which there are many) are particularly effective in spring and early summer, when bass move into shallow water to spawn. But they can be used effectively in June and July as well, and even into the fall, so long as the water temperature is at least 50 degrees. Of course these sh also can be approached by boat, and often are, as anglers employ bow-mounted trolling motors on their shing craft to sneak up on bedding areas. But wade-shing at this time of year is often more effective, providing the shore angler is properly equipped, and can cast fairly long distances. Long casts are important, Bill said. So is heavy line something in the 30-pound-test range or more. Helpful also are smooth-spooling baitcasting reels and stout rods; equipment that can both catapult baits and provide winch-like retrieves. Additionally, an understanding of where bass like to make their beds whether, in a given lake, in and among vegetation, or instead more toward open water also helps. Water about 3 feet deep is where I nd most bass at this time of year, Bill said. As he spoke, the rst sh of the evening appeared from the lake as if discharged from a cannon, its mouth agape. Simultaneously, Bills Scum Frog disappeared, and in quick succession his line drew tight and his rod bowed toward the disturbance. You really dont want to let these bass dive on you once youve got them hooked, Bill said. Its fun to ght them. But if you let them get too wound into the vegetation, you might not land them. As Bill spoke, I cast a Scum Frog that was dark colored, while Bills was light. Also, I was shing a little shallower than he was. But like Bill, I loaded the tip of my rod as powerfully as possible while casting, hoping to gain maximum distance between where I stood and where my Scum Frogs landed. The rst bucketmouth to hit my bait weighed perhaps 2 pounds and shtailed on the lake surface acrobatically. Retrieving the plump specimen quickly, I almost skidded the sh atop the lake surface to keep it from becoming entangled in bulrushes and other vegetation. This shing method almost always produces bass for Bill and me in late spring and early summer. But given this seasons cool weather, we were unsure exactly where bass would be in their springtime spawning cycle. We neednt have worried. The bass along the lakes shoreline were both plentiful and hungry. See FISHING | 15C

Group hopes to acclimate pheasants to new nesting areas


BEAR CREEK TWP. Ross Piazza had one thought as he watched the 28 pheasant chicks y out of a rearing pen into the expansive elds and undergrowth near Francis Walter Dam. He hopes they come back. Piazza, who formed the conservation group Pheasants Aeld, believes the game birds can be imprinted to the location in which theyre raised. If true, Piazza said pen-raised pheasants can be released into areas with suitable habitat and stay there, as long as thats where the birds grew up. That way, he said, pen-raised pheasants can be imprinted to stay in areas with suitable habitat and afford more opportunities for hunters and, possibly, establish their own populations in such areas. The approach is similar to the Pennsylvania Game Commissions Wild Pheasant Recovery Areas, except Piazza is focusing on places with smaller pockets of pheasant habitat instead of the wide expanses of grasslands that can hold hundreds of wild birds. Down in places like Ross Piazza of Pheasants Afield watches as a flock of 1-month-old birds leave their Washingtonville, you have thousands rearing pen and enter a natural habitat in Bear Creek on Monday morning. of acres of grass. Here, we dont, Piazza said. We want to get something in the areas where you may have several hundred acres, but pheasants can still survive and nest on their own. Piazza has studied the imprinting See PHEASANTS | 15C Ross Piazza said Pheasants Aeld also hopes to study the genetics of pen-raised pheasants to determine if certain strains are more apt to remain in the area where they were released. The group hopes to enlist the help of landowners withe suitable pheasant habitat willing to put a Surrogator on their property. If we can develop some areas of several hundred acres where pheasants will remain, nest and survive on their own that would be a success, Piazza said. For more information on the imprinting study or Pheasants Aeld, call Piazza at 760-9342.

Caught on Camera

Capture anything interesting on your handheld or trail camera? A nice buck, bear, coyote or anything unique? Wed love to see it. Each week, well run photos from a readers trail camera on the Sunday Outdoors page. Email your photo, along with date and area it was taken (township is ne), and any other details to tvenesky@ timesleader.com. Over the last few weeks, weve featured photos of great blue herons, spiders, chipmunks and bears. How about a couple of canines this week?

The rst photo was taken by Jack Mrykalos trail camera in South Abington Township in Lackawanna County last February. This beautiful coyote almost looks as if it is posing for the camera. Chris Banks of Dallas was driving along Carverton Road last winter and just happened to have his camera handy when he spied this red fox investigating a chicken coop. Notice the hen standing inside doesnt look too concerned, so its a safe bet to assume that the fox went away hungry that day.

Fishing
From page 14C Mid- and late summer also can produce productive wade-shing for bass, depending on the lake shed. But as summer progresses, early morning and late evening often yield the best action, whereas now, in early summer, midday can be as good as any time to toss weedless baits. That said, wading anglers should cut bass a break in spring and early summer. Care especially should be taken not to step in spawning beds, which appear on the lake bottom as light-colored circles and are readily identiable. Also, pre-spawn females in particular should be released. And if possible, wading anglers shouldnt stumble into deep shoreline holes and pitch headrst into the lake something Bill and I avoided the other evening, but often do not. You can tell the late spring and cold water have changed the timing of everything, Bill said. There arent many beds made yet, and the bass just seem farther behind in the spawning process than they usually are.

Pheasants
From page 14C Piazza has studied the imprinting theory for three years and has conducted field tests using a Surrogator a self-contained unit used to raise pheasant chicks with minimal human interaction. Piazza said the Surrogator, which is manufactured by Wildlife Management Technologies, is placed in an area with suitable pheasant habitat and the birds are put inside with they are a day old, then released in four to five weeks. The unit has an automatic watering system, feeders and a heat source so the pheasant chicks can grow without being accustomed to humans. And they also become imprinted to the area where the Surrogator is placed, which Piazza said is the key. Imprinting to a place. The rst four to ve weeks of their lives are when the birds will imprint to the place they live, Piazza said. Our hope is that when these birds are ushed into areas away from here without good habitat, theyll come back. The Surrogator is checked daily by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers staff from the dam to make sure the birds have adequate food, water and heat. The daily check is brief, Piazza said, and the birds arent handled. The unit was placed on Corps property across from the entrance to the dam, which is also open to public hunting. The first year birds were released from the Surrogator, Piazza said they had to travel across an open field to find water, making them susceptible to predation. That was two years ago, and Piazza said none of the pheasants could be located in the weeks following their release, but none were found dead either. We dont know what happened to them but its encouraging that we didnt nd any dead ones, he said. This year, the Surrogator was moved to a different location with a nearby water source, and the 28 pheasants that were released Monday will be monitored by Pheasants Aeld members and Corps staff from the dam working in the area. Another batch of day-old pheasant chicks will be raised in the Surrogator this summer and they will be tted with leg bands with a phone number to call. Still, Piazza admitted there is only one surere way to nd out if the pheasants are staying near the place where they were released. The only way well really get a handle on it is through telemetry, he said. The cost for telemetry equipment and transmitters for 10 birds is between $3,000 and $4,000, according to Piazza, and Pheasants Afield is applying for its non-profit status so it can seek grant money for the study. Pen-raised birds dont survive or nest well, but there havent been a lot of studies on imprinting to a place, Piazza said. When birds are released during hunting season, theyre pressured immediately and will fly 300 to 400 yards when flushed. They have no reason to come back, unless they are imprinted to a certain area. Keeping the birds in suitable habitat is the key.

Riders
From page 1C extra innings were forced. But in the end that didnt matter. Its awesome. Its a great feeling to have a game like that in the rst day, especially with a game like that in the rst game, said Stevenson, who also hit a walk-off home run earlier this season for High Class-A Tampa his rst game after being sent there from Double-A Trenton. Caleb Cotham, who got the start for the RailRiders and was coming off a bad outing his last time out when he gave up ve runs and eight walks in a loss to Rochester, couldnt have been much better. He lasted six innings, giving up just one run on seven hits and walked just one. He took the no-decision. Canzler, who was part of the Yankees organization for about a month in the offseason, was a big part of Norfolks scoring in the nightcap. In the top of the rst, he had one of two RBI singles by Norfolk as the Tides staked a 2-0 lead. Another new face to the RailRiders, inelder Brent Lillibridge, just acquired via trade with the Chicago Cubs prior to the second game, started his SWB career off with a bang by

clubbing a solo home run in the bottom of the rst to get his team within a run at 2-1. After the teams exchanged runs in the second with Norfolk leading 3-2, Canzler, who went 4-for-4 in Game 2, helped Norfolk squib out another run in the third. He laced a one-out single, hustled to third on another single and then came home on the third hit of the inning to put the Tides up 4-2. The Hazleton Area grad was at it again in the top of the seventh by smoking a one-out double off the wall for the second time in as many at bats then scored on a single as Norfolk widened its lead to 5-2. Both of his doubles in the nightcap might have been home runs in several other ballparks in the International League. Graham Stoneburner started the second game for the RailRiders and took his fourth loss of the season. He threw ve innings, the most hes pitched since tossing six on May 17. But the Tides were too much for the 25-year-old. Lillibridge came up with the chance to be a star once again and match Stevensons performance in the rst game representing the tying run in the bottom of the ninth with two outs, but he ied out to end the game.

THE T.L. EXPRESS


A split doubleheader on Saturday at PNC Field was a split for the RailRiders and Norfolk Tides. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre won the opener 6-4 in 11 innings during the afternoon, while Norfolk took the night game via 5-2 score. RailRiders at the plate: Just called up from Trenton, infielder Casey Stevenson was the hero in Game 1 with a pair of home runs, including a walk-off, two-run shot in the 11th as part of a 3-for-5 game with three RBI. Corey Patterson, Dan Johnson and Cody Grice also had two hits apiece as did J.R. Murphy, who reached base five out of six times with three walks also. Brent Lillibridge homered in his first AB with the RailRiders in the second game to highlight the SWB offense at night, while Johnson had two hits and Addison Maruszak netted three. RailRiders on the mound: Caleb Cotham bounced back from a rough start his last time out to go six innings, allowing just one run, but took a no-decision in the first game. Yoshinori Tateyama, who made his RailRider debut, earned the win in the opener, pitching 1 1-3 perfect frames with a pair of Ks. In the nightcap, Graham Stoneburner got the start. He went five innings, giving up four runs (three earned) on nine hits with four strikeouts and no walks. Chris Bootcheck, who started the season with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and had one appearance with New York, rejoined the RailRiders, taking over for Stoneburner in the sixth. He went two innings, allowing a run on four hits. Dellin Betances pitched the last two scoreless innings allowing one hit, a walk and fanned two. Attendance: Game 1: 5,829; Game 2: 9,005 Time of Game: Game 1, 3:31; Game 2, 2:58 Riding the Rails: Prior to Game 1, the RailRiders transferred a pair of pitchers who worked in Fridays game starter Zach Nuding and lefty reliever Fred Lewis to Double-A Trenton and received Game 1 starter Caleb Cotham and infielder Casey Stevenson from the Thunder. Prior to the second game, a few more moves were made with catcher Ryan Baker hitting the disabled list and infielder Dan Fiorito being assigned to Tampa. Pitcher Chris Bootcheck, designated for assignment by New York last week, was signed and assigned to SWB. Infielder Brent Lillibridge, acquired in a trade from the Chicago Cubs, was also assigned to the RailRiders. Canzler Can: Hazleton native Russ Canzler had a huge day for Norfolk during the twinbill. He clubbed a three-run home run his 11th of the season in the top of the seventh of Game 1 to tie the game 4-4. He finished the opener 2-for-5 with three RBI and capped that with a 4-for-4 performance in the second game with a pair of doubles, an RBI and two runs scored. Todays Game: The final game of the four-gamer against Norfolk is this afternoon at 1:05 at PNC Field. Todays Probables: RailRiders RHP Brett Marshall (2-6, 6.94) vs. Norfolk LHP Tsuyoshi Wada (1-4, 6.68) On Deck: The RailRiders begin a 10-game road trip to Syracuse and Pawtucket, starting Monday with five games against each division opponent. Scranton/ Wilkes-Barres next home game after the road trip is July 4. Today at PNC Field: Like every Sunday at the ballpark, its a Family FUNday with select autographs available prior to the game and kids can run the bases following the final out. On The Radio: All games can be heard on WYCK 1340-AM, 1400-AM, 100.7-FM On TV: The next televised game by WQMY (My Network TV) will be on July 4 from PNC Field.

Bad News
From page 1C based in Florida that uses sportsmanship as one of its cornerstones. In some cases, violent behavior has led to criminal charges in Newark, N.J., for instance, where parents allegedly beat up a Little League baseball umpire because he wouldnt call a game because of darkness. The level of competition in youth sports has gotten exponentially greater, forcing this level of hyper-competition, Sanders says. I think that is driving a certain level of behavior on the sidelines that is amplied. Haley Small, a 19-year-old college student who played soccer and then traveling softball through high school, puts it this way: The more competitively I played, the more interesting the parents got. Wed joke about it, but its serious. Some of my friends were walking on eggshells, says Small, now a student at Ithaca College in New York. We hear a lot more than people think. It gets so bad sometimes that some players wish their parents would just stay home, she says. Laura Marinelli, who coaches Smalls younger sister on a traveling softball team for 12to 14-year-old girls in Essex County, N.J., also has noticed more over-the-top parent behavior in recent years. Marinelli recalls one dad who was angry about a play on the eld and tried to tackle her assistant coach during a game. The coach was able to duck the parent and ended up throwing him to the ground. At a national tournament last year, she says a father of a player was so unhappy with a decision shed made that he ran at her in the dugout, screaming and pointing in her face, causing some of her players to cry. Ultimately, she asked his daughter to leave the team because she felt the dad

had repeatedly violated the teams code of conduct. The girl is a phenomenal softball player. Shes a sweetheart and a great kid, Marinelli says. But I cant have a parent like that on the sidelines. Kicking kids off teams is one of the more serious punishments that leagues and coaches use to try to keep parents under control. Some leagues and tournament ofcials also are giving umpires more power to warn offending parents and coaches and then ask them to leave the premises if they ignore the warning. It can be an effective deterrent, though in many other instances, umpires or referees at youth games are often teenagers who may not have the experience or condence to stand up to parents. And often, theres no security at games. So parents are left to police themselves. For that reason, some teams assign parents to be culture keepers, asking those people to help keep the yelling and negativity from fellow parents to a minimum. Sometimes, they even hand out lollipops to help keep themselves quiet. But sometimes the culture keeper isnt always the best person because that person is yelling just as much as the other parents, Jill Kirby says, laughing. Shes a mom in Long Grove, Ill., whose ve children participate in sports, from soc-

cer to swimming and T-ball, sometimes in neighboring Buffalo Grove. She says the signs asking adults to behave are a nice idea perhaps even a way to get people talking about the issue. But ultimately, she doesnt think the tactic will work. I think the worst offenders dont think they are the worst offenders, Kirby says, conceding that maybe even she was one of those parents, once upon a time. And then I got a little perspective, she says. Greg Dale, a sports psychologist at Duke University, agrees that its difcult for parents to see themselves as that parent, at least without a little help. He recalls a mom in California telling him about a dad she called leather lungs because he yelled so often at the ofcials, coaches and kids. Hesitant to approach him, the woman secretly lmed him at several games and anonymously sent him the video. And the guy changed the way he was acting from then on, Dale says. More often, though, he says he sees parents who say the right things about sportsmanship maybe even reciting a pledge before a game, as is the case at his own childrens Little League games. Those things help. But ultimately, I think theyre BandAids, says Dale, author of

the book The Fullling Ride: A Parents Guide to Helping Athletes Have a Successful Sport Experience. More important, he says is whether parents are actually BEING good sports, even at professional sporting events. As parents, we have to model the lessons we want our kids want to learn, he says. There are other good reasons not to interfere, says Malcolm Brown, a high school and club soccer coach in Westchester County, N.Y. One of his teams has instituted very occasional silent Sunday games. But hed like to have them more often because he says they make his players better and more able to make decisions on their own. Too often during games, theyre looking to the side for direction, he says of this generation of young athlete. They become robots. They can never become good in soccer because soccer demands the imagination and creativity of the player. Wendy Grolnick, a psychology professor at Clark University in Massachusetts, sees why silent games could be useful. But she also says coaches and leagues shouldnt punish all parents because some are overzealous. We dont want to just shut people up and make them feel like they cant say anything, says Grolnick, who wrote the book Pressured Parents, Stressed-Out Kids: Dealing with Competition While Raising a Successful Child. She recalls her own experience at meetings for parents when her daughters have played eld hockey and tennis in college. A lot of those meetings focused on what not to do, she says. It could feel a little insulting.. We need to feel like partners in the process. But theres a happy medium, even for the most well-intentioned parents and even when theyre not yelling or ghting says Mike Cherenson, a youth sports coach who founded a lacrosse league in his town, Pequannock, N.J.

It had been 20 years since a championship series had at least three games go to overtime, and this is just the sixth time since 1927 it has happened. The only other nal to feature more OT games during that stretch was when Toronto and Montreal played ve in 1951. Teams that have won Game 5 after splitting the rst four have gone on to win the championship 15 of 22 times since the league went to a best-of-seven format in 1939.

Tour de France still has significance


AP Sports Writer

JOHN LEICESTER

PARIS Ahead of its 100th running starting next Saturday, the Tour de France remains a fantastic idea. Asking riders to pedal around Western Europes largest country and up and down some of its tallest mountains for three weeks is still zany and whimsical enough to be interesting. But is the Tour still worth taking seriously as a sports event? The fall of Lance Armstrong in the past year, along with other dopers who ruined the credibility of cycling and its showcase race, has opened that question to debate like never before. From the outset in 1903, when journalist Geo Lefevre and his editor Henri Desgrange, hatched the idea of an endurance race around France to boost sales of their newspaper, LAuto, the Tour has always been part-publicity stunt, part-genuine sporting contest. Then, as now, it sucked in spectators with the theater both gruesome and inspiring of men made to suffer on bicycles. And even now, at the sports nadir, the Tours essential charms to fans and sponsors remain the same: roads, mountains, the beauty of France and men willing to push themselves to extremes. The timing alone in July when much of France is either vacationing or thinking about it makes it more than likely that the Tour will be still be around for its 200th edition. The competition is always colorful if not always believable, a fun excuse for sleepy villages to come alive and a free summer spectacle for holidaymakers. The millions of people who line the route largely dont seem to care how many riders are pumped up on banned drugs and blood transfusions. Just as long as they see the spandex-clad racers zoom by and get a good picnic spot and freebies from sponsors, whose oats precede the riders, tossing out sweets, cheap sunhats and bite-size packs of cured sausage. Tour spectators, surveys

suggest, make a day of it, often coming in groups and spending six or more hours by the side of the road. Their presence and media coverage in a month when other sports, including soccer, are largely dormant means the Tour remains worthwhile for sponsors, which argues for it continuing to hold a special place in athletic calendar. French lottery and gaming operator La Franaise des Jeux spends 9.5 million ($12.5 million) per year on the cycling team that bears its name. But in French television and newspaper publicity, it recouped nearly that same amount from the team at the 2012 Tour, when its rider Thibaut Pinot nished 10th and won stage eight, said FDJ sponsorship director Thierry Huguenin. Nestle Waters sponsorship manager, Francoise Bresson, said it spends 3 million to 5 million euros ($4 million to $6.5 million) each year to have its Vittel brand plastered over the end of each days stage, generating publicity in France and overseas that otherwise might have cost at least 10 times that amount to buy. The Tour makes a prot for its

owners, ASO, but the company wont say how much. For its 100th edition, it is in rude health, Bresson said in an interview about the Tour. Doping has no or little impact. The sporting exploits dominate and the festive dimension. In these times of crisis, there arent that many free sporting events which are a pleasure for the spectators. Doping also isnt new to the Tour. The intense physicality of the race long encouraged it. As far back as 1924, the Pelissier brothers, Henri and Francis, were telling famed French journalist Albert Londres that they dosed up on cocaine, chloroform and assorted pills. In short, said Francis, we run on dynamite. Armstrong might have scoffed at that. Dynamite? Amateurs. By 1999, when he and his U.S. Postal Service teammates hijacked the Tour, riders had become lab rats. Drops of testosterone, shots of cortisone, human growth hormone to help build muscle. Transfusions of blood and injections of erythropoietin, a hormone that stimulates the

body to produce oxygen-bearing red blood cells and is used in medicine to treat anemia. Engrained, widespread and relatively risk-free because drug testing was so poor, doping became more of a necessity than a choice in professional cycling. Scientists estimated at least 80 percent of riders in the grand tours of France, Spain and Italy were manipulating their blood. It became as routine as saying we have to have air in our tires or water in our bottles, Armstrong told interviewer Oprah Winfrey this January, when he nally confessed, after years of lawyer-backed denials, that he doped for all seven of his Tour wins from 1999-2005. Those titles have now been stripped from him and not reattributed, blowing a hole in the Tours roll of honor as large as that left by World War II. Armstrong, his doping peers and cyclings woeful failure to unmask them earlier blew even larger holes in the credibility of the sport and its administrators. The ultimately bogus tale of the cancer survivor who conquered the

Tour with willpower and sweat had drawn new interest and fans to what had mainly been a European sport and its most famous race. Now that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has jimmied open the secrets Armstrong kept hidden for so long, how many fans have been lost to cycling forever? What is disappointing is the amount of people that say, You know, look, Ive lost faith in it, I dont believe in it anymore. Because, you know, fool me once, fool you. Fool me twice, fool me, Jaimie Fuller, owner of sportswear manufacturer and cycling sponsor Skins, said in an interview. People really felt let down about the fact that it just keeps biting us. How many riders are still doping? Only they know. Cyclings anti-doping program is more believable than it was when Armstrong was cheating with impunity. Cycling teams, race organizers, the sports governing body and even the riders themselves fund the drug testing that is arguably more rigorous than that faced by professionals in tennis, the NBA, the NFL or Major League Baseball. Riders in the top tier of teams were tested an average of nearly 12 times in 2012. But no one is foolish enough to say all dopers have been weeded out. In May at Italys grand tour, the Giro dItalia, Vini Fantini teammates Mauro Santambrogio and Danilo Di Luca tested positive for EPO. Alexander Serebryakov also was positive for EPO in a test in March. Another Russian, Nikita Novikov, tested positive for a muscle-building drug in May. Their respective teams Euskaltel-Euskadi and Vacansoleil are among the 22 riding the Tour. Optimists say such incidents demonstrate that cycling is now doing more than other sports to confound cheats, not that it has more cheats. You only nd what you look for, Tour director Christian Prudhomme said in an interview. When the police catch thieves, we congratulate them. When cycling catches cheats, people say, there are still things going on.

NEWTON, Iowa For the most part, IndyCar drivers enjoy racing at Iowa Speedway. That doesnt mean todays race is going to be easy. The temperatures expected to reach the low 90s by the time the green ag drops. Its also the last of ve straight races without a break, and few tracks in the IndyCar Series are as physically demanding as Iowas steep-banked, .875-mile oval. Though Iowas bullring setup is great for the fans, its easy to see why many drivers think the smallest oval on the IndyCar circuit is also the most draining one this season. Its probably the toughest (track), especially after ve weeks. It is what it is. Thats why we prepare ourselves for that, Tony Kanaan said. Myself physically, I tried to be ready because I knew it was going to be a long stretch. But you can tell. Everybodys getting tired. Iowa isnt exact the ideal place for a weary race team. Its so small that drivers are turning four times about every 17 seconds at speeds of up to 185 mph. That, combined with some of the steepest banking in IndyCar and the lack of a true straightaway, puts tremendous physical pressure on the drivers. Brad Goldberg, an engineer for the No. 83 Chip Ganassi Racing car driven by Charlie Kimball, said that at Iowa the G-force is roughly ve times a drivers body weight laterally and twice that vertically at its peak. Even though the banking at Texas is steeper than at Iowa, at least that 1.5-mile oval offers a pair of straightaways that give drivers a chance to catch their breath.

If youre a 200-pound guy, youd basically have 400 pounds youre trying to squat and 1,000 pounds youre trying to hold yourself up against. If you can imagine trying to do that at the same time in a weight room, thats what they feel twice a lap, Goldberg said. The cold winters and hot summers have also added character to the track since its rst IndyCar race in 2007, with a signicant bump in the second turn and warping in the nal one. Those imperfections can make a driver momentarily lose and then regain control as though theyre driving in a snowstorm 500 times in a 250-lap race. Of course, snow is the last thing drivers will need to worry about on a weekend when the track temperature will likely hit 120 degrees. Such oppressive heat can cause dehydration, which can lead to a lack of focus on a track that demands constant concentration. Still, focus can be elusive for teams that havent had a real break since the end of April by far the longest such stretch of the year. Its not so much as just drivers, but the poor guys working on the car. They dont have days off, Goldberg said. When were back at the shop, were not just sitting by the pool drinking margaritas. But even with all the challenges Iowa presents, most drivers say that Iowa is among the more fun tracks theyll visit all year. Iowa is reminiscent of the popular short tracks that dot the Midwest, and along with Milwaukee is the only oval of a mile or less left on the series. Its a fun place to race, Graham Rahal said. It is a great place to go. You can get two lanes developed here. It makes it enjoyable, puts on a good show.

Allmendinger wins Nationwide Series race


The Associated Press ELKHART LAKE, Wis. AJ Allmendinger slid past Justin Allgaier with seven laps to go, then defended his lead through a late restart and a pair of nerve-testing green-white-checkered overtime nishes to win Saturdays NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Road America. For Allmendinger, it was another step toward rebuilding his racing career after sitting out part of last season because of a violation of NASCARs substance-abuse policy. It also was a return to victory lane at Road America for Allmendinger, who won at the four-mile road course in Central Wisconsin in the Champ Car Series in 2006. Allgaier nished second, followed by Parker Kligerman, Owen Kelly and Sam Hornish Jr. Billy Johnson led on a restart with eight to go, but he slid wide in Turn 5 and was passed by Allgaier and Allmendinger. Allmendinger then made the decisive move one lap later, snatching the lead from Allgaier at the top of the hill in Turn 6. Hed have to defend his lead on three more restarts, fending off a charge from Allgaier with three laps to go and then facing two green-white-checkered finishes NASCARs version of overtime. Allmendinger once again took the lead, only to watch another caution come out for Michael Annetts accident to trigger a second overtime. With drivers facing concerns about having enough fuel left on the second green-white-checkered restart, Allmendinger held on again to take the checkered ag and stop in Turn 5 to celebrate in front of the fans. Allmendinger started from pole

position and led early, but made a mistake on lap seven and briey slipped off the track. He regained control and got back on track but lost two places in the process, going from rst to third. That gave the lead to Johnson, a California native with a background in sports car racing. But Johnson was penalized for entering pit road too fast on lap 14, sending him to the back of the eld. Kligerman then slid off track while in the lead on lap 19, allowing Kelly to take the lead with Allmendinger right on his back bumper. Defending race winner Nelson Piquet Jr. then had a rough moment before the races halfway point, plowing into the back of Brian Scotts car. Piquets hood crumpled in the crash, costing him any chance of contention.

Health care without a checking account


THERES SOME good news for consumers without bank accounts worried about whether they can benet from the Affordable Care Act. The U.S. Department of Personal Health and Human Services said last Finance week that it is proPamela Yip posing new rules to address a concern that many insurance companies planned to require customers to pay premiums automatically through a checking account. The tax preparation rm Jackson Hewitt Tax Service raised the concern in a recently issued report. It said that without a rule change, about 8.5 million Americans could be affected. More than 1 in 4 uninsured Americans eligible for the new premium assistance tax credits under the ACA does not have a checking account, the report said. Among the uninsured, non-elderly population with household incomes in the tax-crediteligible range, 27 percent are effectively unbanked. Many consumers dont have the option of opening a bank account, and if they do, a lot of consumers refuse to do it because of the high fees attached to them, said Brian Haile, senior vice president for health policy at Jackson Hewitt. Jackson Hewitt called on the federal government to require insurance companies to accept payment through prepaid debit cards and other forms of payment commonly used by unbanked Americans. On Friday, the government responded with its proposed rule that would require issuers of qualied health plans in all states to accept a variety of forms of premium payment. Open enrollment for state-based insurance exchanges starts in October. The federal government will run the exchange in Texas. We realize that a segment of the population that will seek health insurance coverage through an exchange will not have bank accounts or credit cards, and we have received numerous questions and comments on this topic, the proposed rule said. These people should be able to access coverage through an exchange on the same basis as those with a bank account or credit card and should not be unable to access coverage merely due to the inability to pay their share of the premium. Therefore, we propose to require qualied health plan issuers at a minimum accept a variety of payment formats, including, but not limited to, paper checks, cashiers checks, money orders, and replenishable pre-paid debit cards, so that individuals without a bank account will have readily available options for making monthly premium payments. Insurance companies may also offer electronic funds transfers from a bank account and automatic deduction from a credit or debit card as payment options. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas said its developing two payment options for its members: Partnering with certain retailers where members shop to allow them to walk in and make a payment in person, using cash or a debit card. Designating Blue Cross Blue Shield locations where members can walk in to pay and also speak with a customer service representative about health benets questions they may have. We are also establishing a process to allow on-demand credit card payment acceptance for retail premium payments, said spokeswoman Margaret Jarvis. While we will continue to accept the traditional forms of payment checks and money orders we will also accept partial/multiple payments as long as full payment is made by the due date, she said. UnitedHealthcares Golden Rule Insurance Co. accepts checks, cash, money orders, cashiers checks, Western Union and electronic funds transfer for premium payments, said spokeswoman Ellen Laden. We accept pre-paid debit cards with the Visa or MasterCard logo for initial premium payments and in certain other circumstances, she said. There is no surcharge to customers for using them.

For a growing number of Internet retailers, ofine is the new online. Across the country, retailers that existed only in cyberspace are now opening -- or thinking of opening -- traditional stores at a time when e-commerces explosive growth has spawned a slew of dire predictions that brickand-mortar retailing will become irrelevant or even extinct. Online giant Amazon is actively exploring a store concept. Specialty retailers like Warby Parker, which sells eyeware, and Bonobos, a mens clothing company, already operate stores. In Minnesotas Twin Cities area, Sigma Beauty, a fast-growing, fouryear-old online makeup retailer, recently opened its rst outlet _ at the Mall of America. I feel that everything weve done with this company was backward, joked Simone Xavier, who launched Sigma with her husband, Rene Xavier Filho.

The double-digit growth in online sales has often come at the expense of physical retailers, which is why companies such as Best Buy and Target are spending millions of dollars to upgrade their websites and mobile software. But todays retailer will gladly record a sale any way they can get it, said Jeff Green, a Phoenix-based retail consultant. It is strange to see e-commerce sites open physical stores, Green said. But when you think about, its not surprising. The most successful retailers are going to have a combination of bricks-and-mortars and digital sales. For online retailers, you might as well get to the sale as close as you can. Bricks-and-mortar retailing may seem outdated, but the physical store still offers a credible and safe place for customers to examine the product, ask questions, buy and, if necessary, return it. Its about taking the risk out of buying, said Steven Dennis, a retail consultant and a former top executive with Neiman Marcus and Sears. Thats especially true of certain products like clothing, shoes, handbags and eyeglasses, where consumers still prefer real store interaction vs. a purely digital experience. In some cases, consumers may think a deal is too good to be true. For example, Warby Parker markets itself See STORES | 2D

Five questions small company owners should ask themselves at mid-year


By Caroline McMillan | The Charlotte Observer

Hows Business?
manager of Vine American Kitchen, a restaurant that opened late last year in Ballantyne, N.C., said the hours he recently spent passing out free jambalaya, chocolate-chip cookies and menus at the annual Ballantyne Business Bash were fruitful. Summer can be a slow time of the year, especially if youre new on the scene, Garen said. But thats just another reason to make sure you keep your name circulating. You dont let your guard down, he said. Youve got to stay up on your business. Stay sharp. Someones more likely to seek out a restaurant where they know someone, Garen said, and summertime business events and family-friendly festivals facilitate that one-on-one interaction. You exhibit what you have, you have fun, and you generate business, Garen said. 2. Am I playing off the news?

Whether the summer means tourism slam, business as usual or slow goings, every entrepreneur should make time for a midyear checkup on their small business, experts say.
Running a business is a dayto-day process, said Gregg Thompson, North Carolina director for the National Federation of Independent Businesses. But its much more than (that). Its a longer-term planning process. June and July are months when businesses should assess the year so far and begin planning for the next six months and beyond, Thompson said. But even the prospect of an assessment sounds daunting and potentially expensive. So The Charlotte Observer spoke with a handful of smallbusiness owners and consultants for their best tips and strategies for a midyear analysis that wont break the bank _ or consume those long-awaited vacation days. Here are ve questions to ask about your business: 1. Am I networking enough? Joe Garen, senior operations

David Tobin, one of the founders of Tobin Starr and Partners, a Charlotte, N.C.-based architectural and design rm, said he starts every meeting with a discussion of local and national news. Those few minutes help them stay apprised of the marketplace, which, in turn, has generated a lot of business, Tobin said. His rm designed the NASCAR Hall of Fame building in Charlotte and has big-name clients, such as Brixx Pizza and Pandora Jewelry. These updates were especially important when the economy crashed and many of the privatesector gigs dropped off. Tobin Starr and Partners relied on news to nd opportunities for publicsector jobs, such as the renovation they recently worked on at the University of North CarolinaCharlotte. Its important for us to pay attention to even try to participate, he said.

Frumpy sweatpants and T-shirts -- those just arent working out. When it comes to tness gear, many women want functional and cute. Yoga pants have to do the job at the gym, then be attering as they walk the aisles at the grocery store. If youre more put together, youre more likely to feel good about what youre doing, said Caitie Beisswenger, as she shopped recently for tness gear in Edina, Minn. Workout attire is taking on a whole new shape as athletic-apparel retailers are rushing to cater to women looking for all-purpose, stylish exercise clothes. Activewear is a $30 billion industry in the United States, and its been growing steadily in the past few years as womens participation in sports increases, according to Global

Information research. The industry is responding to customer demand for versatility, comfort and promotion of a healthy lifestyle. Gap Inc.s Athleta brand, previously a catalog-only business, opened its Edina location in 2011 as its rst bricks-and-mortar store in the Midwest. Women at the store walk around in yoga pants and ip-ops, some toting their daughters wearing running shorts and tennis shoes. Women appreciate the stores cross-functional offerings, general manager Jen Sheedy said, such as capri pants that have mesh behind the knees to accommodate sweating during a workout, but that are chic enough to wear under boots in the winter. I wore all Athleta when I went to the Twins game and I didnt feel out of place, Sheedy said. See FITNESS | 2D

OFFICE COACH

Basket caseemployee must be taught to restrain emotions


Q.: I recently hired an employee who appears to be a high-strung basket case. Shannon is experienced and intelligent, but working with her is almost unbearably exhausting. Every phone call lasts at least an hour, and most of our face-to-face meetings end in tears. Her lengthy emails are all marked Urgent! With Shannon, every little thing becomes a major deal. She emailed me repeatedly for two days about the exact wording on her business cards. Shannon can perform well when shes focused, so I know she has potential. But her ofce-mate is ready to drive off a bridge just to get some peace. What should I do about this? A.: The key question is whether Shannon can control this excessive emotionality. If not, then retaining her would be unfair to both her co-workers and the business. When a chronically disruptive employee wreaks havoc on morale and productivity, the only responsible choice is to let that person go. If Shannon is currently in a new-hire probationary status, you will need to make this decision quickly. Give her a chance to improve by providing clear expectations and frequent feedback. Focus only on work-related issues and avoid the temptation to critique her personality. To circumvent legal landmines, consult your human resources manager or labor attorney. If Shannon is able to consistently demonstrate self-control, perhaps she can achieve the potential you see in her. But if her unrestrained emotional needs continue to be a drain and a distraction, then you should end her employment during the probationary period. Otherwise, you may be living with this problem for a long, long time. Q: For several years, my work as a project manager has not been very fullling. Although management occasionally tosses a new assignment my way, the job never really changes much. Recently, I was disappointed to learn that I had not been considered for a newly created position. Someone from outside was hired instead. I have become extremely discouraged, because I see no way to improve this situation. Talking with my supervisor wont help, because I have had four different bosses in the past ve years. Do you have any suggestions? A: Revolving-door management is a pretty sure sign of an organization in turmoil. When the environment is in a constant state of ux, employee morale and development tend to be overlooked, so work frequently becomes less rewarding. Project-focused people are often especially frustrated, because new managers tend to replace the pet projects of predecessors with their own initiatives. After several such changes, project team members may conclude that nothing they do will ever have a lasting impact. Although youre undoubtedly tired of breaking in new bosses, the wisest short-term strategy is to develop a strong partnership with your manager-of-the-moment. That way, you might have an advocate the next time a potentially rewarding opportunity comes along. But if the chaos continues, the only long-term solution is to nd a more stable place to work.

From page 1D as a place where consumers purchase designer eyeglasses for as low as $95. That low of a price might prompt shoppers to suspect there must be a catch _ either the product is poorly made, or the website is a scam altogether. Opening a store would help alleviate those fears, Dennis said. But dont expect online retailers to completely shed their digital roots. Its one thing to open one experimental store in a suburban shopping center to showcase your products; quite another to operate dozens of stores in big malls or large cities, which requires money and expertise that are often beyond the reach of Internet rms. If youre going to a hightrafc area and paying a decent amount of rent, it puts the pressure on you to know what you are doing, Dennis said. Take Sigma Beauty. Founded in 2009, the New Brighton, Minn.-based Internet makeup retailer quickly grew, thanks to its international reach and deftuse of social media like YouTube. The company expects to generate $25 mil-

lion in sales this year compared to $18 million in 2012. Opening a store was never part of the plan, Xavier said. The cost of maintaining and

building the store is humongous. I was very hesitant. Added Filho: Financially, it doesnt make any sense. Youre going to lose $1,000 per day.

But when the couple learned of available space at the Mall of America, they quickly jumped on it. For one thing, Xavier said,

although Sigma Beauty sells to customers in more than 100 countries, very few people in Minnesota are aware of the company.

In addition, a retail space provides an ideal place for Sigma Beauty to host events like beauty parties in which the company recruits celebrity makeup experts from YouTube to offer personal makeup tutorials. But running a store requires a whole new mindset, Xavier said. Online, its very easy, she said. People can purchase products anywhere, anytime. You are not restricted to the hours of the malls; youre not restricted by the weather. Everything in the society around us affects the (store) sale. Xavier also discovered that even relatively small adjustments to the store -- placing merchandise in front of the cash registers or pumping a scent near the store entrance to draw in customers -- can really affect sales. Since the store opened last December, the location now generates enough sales to almost cover the costs of operating it. Encouraged by this, Xavier and Filho said they might consider opening Sigma Beauty stores in New York and Los Angeles. Its a challenge for us, Filho said. Can we do it? It looks like yes. It has become a toy for us to play with.

Fitness
From page 1D Beisswenger shopped at the Edina store on Friday, sporting a ponytail, running shorts and blue sneakers. She said she buys tness gear that she can wear not only to the store, but also to her job at an ad agency, at least on casual days. Id rather look sporty than frumpy, Beisswenger said. Athleta is pushing a sporty look, for sure. But its also pushing a sporty lifestyle. Several times a week, the racks are rolled aside and the store is transformed into a workout studio. Customers can attend free Zumba classes taught by Colleen Wakaruk, an Athleta sales associate as well as a personal trainer who owns a gym. The store has running coaches and is planning to start a bicycling club soon. We want to be more than somebody who sells you clothes, Sheedy said. Athleta customers are willing to pay a little bit more for their activewear, too: Yoga pants average about $75, support tops are around $50 and swimwear $55. But the store has an anytime, any-reason return policy, and it offers free alterations. It might seem silly to have your yoga pants altered, Sheedy said _ unless youre wearing them all day. Canadian retailer Lululemon Athletica underestimated how much customers wear their

yoga pants in public when the company had to recall a line of them for being too seethrough. A few yards away from Athleta, a regional tness chain is jumping on the same bandwagon. Steele Fitness, with six locations in Minnesotas Twin Cities area, just partnered Winthrop Regional Small Business Development Center, for example, has a certied nancial planner on staff who can sit down with a business owner, quickly run through the nances for the last two to three years, and highlight problem areas and solutions, Daly said. Its not an alternative to an in-depth analysis from a business nancial consultant or CPA who knows the operation intimately, but its often benecial to get fresh eyes and new ideas, Daly said. Weve seen some places close that

with Under Armour to create a store within its Edina tness center called Under Armour for Steele. Steele Fitness founder and CEO Steele Smiley said the 2,500-square-foot outpost, which opened last month, is the future of retail. Its not just a store where men and women weve all known needed help, that we even tried to reach out and help, Daly said. But they always say, Oh no, were doing ne. Well see it through. Then they close up two months later. Had they asked for help sooner, they probably wouldnt have. 4. What is my competition doing? It doesnt cost any money, but a few simple Internet searches can go a long way toward helping your business better compete in the marketplace, said Dawn Newsome, founder and owner

can buy athletic apparel, but a center for a healthy lifestyle. Our concept is all wellness, all the time, Smiley said. The Edina location has wellness coaches, workout equipment and a locker room complete with luxurious white bathrobes. Then, on its street level, it has workout gear, of Moonlight Creative Group, a Charlotte marketing agency that predominantly works with nonprots. Start with your own brand checkup, Newsome said. Have you gotten any positive or negative press? Are customers talking about your brand? Are they saying what you want them to say? This will give you a point of reference and a way to analyze your goals for the next six months, she said. As for the competition: See whats being said about them. Visit their websites, blogs and social

including co-branded items that Steele and Under Armour worked on together. Womens tops advertise the Edina store or feature slogans like Pretty Sweaty. People love the specialized collection, Smiley said. Because its the unexpected. He said customers appremedia pages. See what theyre touting, and the medium they used to do it. Its not like youre spying, Newsome said. Youre just staying current, making sure you know whats going on in the industry. You may learn some trends that you werent aware of that you want to get up to speed on. 5. How do I get ready for fall? It may be the last thing on your mind as you consider the ofce policy on ip-ops, but its crucial to look ahead at upcoming events and holi-

ciate the high-performance aspects of Under Armour gear, which runs from about $20 to $150. And, of course, they like that it looks good. Women want to look like, I could wear this out with jeans, said Lily Smith, who works at Steele. And they do. I have, and I get compliments. Smiley plans to open Under Armour stores next to every Steele Fitness center as the company expands nationwide. Target Corp. is also expanding its activewear selection. In October, the retailer opened its rst stand-alone store for its C9 by Champion line, in San Francisco. The store offers athletic apparel for men, women and children. Most items are available for less than $30, said Target spokesman Lee Henderson. Our guests are looking for those higher-end pieces, he said. C9 provides higherend technology at that lower price. The C9 line also sponsors marathons and other races, as well as in-store Target events, Henderson said. Thats because more and more, its not enough for retailers to offer workout clothes. They have to offer a lifestyle. You have to respond to the customer a whole lot faster, Smiley said. You cant be Macys anymore.

Business

From page 1D At the midyear mark, its important to take a look at prots and losses over the rst six months _ and consider an outside opinion, said Carol Daly, a consultant with the Rock Hill, S.C.-based Winthrop Regional Small Business Development Center. For a quick, budget-conscious tune-up, consider free resources through local nonprots and publicly funded business incubators. The

days in the next six months, especially if you want to save money. Consider what you want your stafng to look like and how many people youll need to hire, Daly said. Do you need to install security cameras, revamp the layout to decrease shoplifting, or budget for part-time security? Dont let those considerations sneak up on during the busiest, most stressful time of year. And for retailers, consider what inventory youll need to order ahead of time. Think ahead, Daly said.

BUCKLE UP Stock investors had been enjoying a smooth ride in 2013. But since May 31, the Standard & Poors 500 index has fallen at least 1 percent in a day five times in 16 trading sessions. Thats a 31 percent rate of frequency. Before May 31, the S&P 500 had fallen 1 percent only six times in the 103 trading days since the end of 2012, or 6 percent of the time. The recent spate of turbulence means 2013 is on track to have roughly the same number of 1-percent down days as last year, when the S&P 500 had 21. To be sure, thats still much lower than it was during the financial crisis and its aftermath. Number of days when the S&P 500 fell 1 percent or more

PILING HIGHER The cash hoard for big companies keeps growing larger. Companies in the S&P 500 held $1.094 trillion in cash at the end of March, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices. Thats up from $1.091 trillion at the end of 2012, and its the 18th time in the last 20 quarters that a record was set for cash. The figure excludes cash held by banks and other companies that hold large amounts of cash as part of their day-to-day operations. Give credit to continually growing profits. Earnings per share for S&P 500 companies rose 5.2 percent in the first quarter from a year earlier.

BIG BUYBACKS Companies continue to use some of their big cash reserves to buy back their own shares. S&P 500 companies purchased $100 billion of their own stock during the first quarter, up from $99.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices. The technology sector once again was the leader. IBM and others techies accounted for 18 percent of all the dollars used for buybacks. But the health care sector is catching up.

On fast-casual dining
InsiderQ&A

Rick Wetzel
Who he is: Founder of Blaze Pizza His strategy: Delivering quailty pizza for slightly more than fast food prices.

Blaze Pizza founder Rick Wetzel is betting that people want a place where they can grab a quick, made-to-order pie without the hassle of having to sit down for table service. The concept is known in the industry as fast-casual, a style popularized by Chipotle and Panera. Customers like these chains because they feel theyre getting restaurant quality food for a little more than they would pay at a fast-food restaurant. Their rapid growth in recent years has made them popular with investors too. Blaze has two locations in Southern California with 150 more in development in 10 states. Investors include Maria Shriver, LeBron James and Tom Werner, one of the owners of the Red Sox. Wetzel, who founded Wetzels Pretzels and sold it to a private equity firm in 2007, notes there are few publicly traded fast-casual chains despite their popularity. But hes hoping Blaze could soon help change that. How does Blaze Pizza work? The pies run from $5 for a cheese pizza to $7.45 for choosing any toppings you want. You go down the line and pick whatever meats, cheeses and veggies you want. Theyre really thin crust and cook in about 2 minutes in 800-degree ovens. Theyre 12-inch pies large for individual sizes. So we have boxes out on the floor if people want to take some home with them. What defines a fast-casual chain? Its halfway between a McDonalds and a place like Applebees. Its about the quality of the food, not just going down the assembly line like at Chipotle. Panera is a fast-casual concept and its not an assembly line. Fast-casual hamburger places like Five Guys are executing differently too. Where do fast-casual restaurants draw their customers from? Fast-casual puts enormous pressure on casual dining because were basically delivering the same quality food at half the price and you dont have to tip the waiter. But were mainly taking from quick service. People whod rather pay $7 and get something thats really tasty and good for you. Quick-service restaurants have their best days behind them. Theyre at the end of their road the trends are all leading toward healthy eating. Do you see Blaze Pizza going public in coming years? Im very careful about that. It looks like were being egotistical or that were bragging if we say we think we can go that direction. But it would be a great way to tap the capital markets and give our investors liquidity. There arent a whole lot of fast-casual companies (that are public) but theres a huge appetite for them. For now, its a lot of blocking and tackling. Were very focused on securing the real estate and establishing the brand. But it could happen as early as three years from now well have the scale and well have the revenue to support it.

Its official: The housing recovery is here to stay. Although the housing market is well off of its peak, there are more signs its recovery has become sustainable. In May, new-home construction rose almost 29 percent over the year prior. Also builders applied for permits to build singlefamily homes at the fastest pace in five years. These are some of the reasons why homebuilder optimism rose to its highest level in seven years this month. With all the good news, consumers are poised to spend more on their homes. After a 10 percent jump in home-improvement spending last year to $125 billion, the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard

Tool time

University predicts a 20 percent rise this year. Some stocks already reflect the boom. Home Depot is up 19 percent this year and Lowes is up 12 percent. But there is still time to buy, if you dont delay. There arent a lot of potential negative catalysts looming, says Morningstar financial analyst R.J. Hottovy. One sign to watch: rising mortgage rates. Analyst Brian Sozzi of Belus Capital advises buying home-improvement stocks over the next two quarters but rein it in if mortgage rates, currently approaching 4 percent, rise above 5 percent. That might chill enthusiasm for home-improvement projects, he says.

Mortgage rates surge

InterestRates

Mortgage rates fell in the early part of this past week. But they surged as markets responded to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernankes statements Wednesday that the Fed will likely reduce its bond purchases later this year. The average on the 30-year fixed mortgage was at 4.21 percent Friday morning. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note, which mortgage rates track, hit a two-year high.

The upside of stock buyback programs for investors is that they limit the number of shares a company has trading. A smaller number of shares means that the companys profits get split among fewer investors, which Stock boosts earnings per share. But thats not Screener always what happens. Companies issue new shares throughout the year for various reasons, from raising money to paying employees. Often, companies issue more new shares than they repurchase, which means investors stakes are getting diluted. During the first quarter of this year, 328 companies in the Standard & Poors 500 index said they repurchased their own shares. Of them, only 212 reduced their number of shares outstanding, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices. This screen from Citi Research shows big companies that have reduced their share count by at least 10 percent over the last year.

Q A

Spending Company Money

What does a companys capital allocation refer to? S.L., West Palm Beach, Fla. Its how the company spends its money, doing such things as buying back some of its shares on the open market, paying shareholders a dividend, paying off debt, buying another company, investing the money, or reinvesting it in the firms core business (perhaps building a new factory or hiring more employees). Companies should spend effectively, though buying back overpriced shares or paying too much for an acquisition, for example, is wasteful and hurts shareholders.

Many stock investors discard the annual proxy statements and ballots they receive from their holdings without looking at them. Thats a shame, as investors have been wielding more power lately. More attention is being paid to matters of corporate governance, such as board composition, voting rights and CEO pay issues. And the link between corporate governance, shareholder rights and choosing solid investments is gaining the attention it deserves. According to data from proxy advisory firm Institutional Shareholder Services, as of last year, 21.5 percent of S&P 500 companies had an outside director serving as chairman of the board, a huge increase from just 3 percent 10 years ago. Other heartening signs include corporations increasingly embracing shareholder-friendly gestures such as eliminating staggered board elections and putting majority voting in place. Both of these have a huge influence on the level of difficulty shareholders have in voting out underperforming or even

*** Once I decide to invest in a mutual fund or a stock, how do I actually do it? R.B., Honolulu You can invest in most mutual funds either through an account you set up at a brokerage, and/or through the mutual funds parent company (such as Vanguard or T. Rowe Price). Some funds have small minimum initial investment requirements, such as $500 (compared with $10,000 or more for other funds). A good place to look up mutual fund track records, fees and other information is at morningstar.com. Remember that for many of us, index funds such as ones that track the S&P 500 are the best bet.

incompetent directors. Staggered board elections remain in only a quarter of companies. Theyre a shareholder nightmare because they have only a portion of the board coming up for election in any given year. Meanwhile, plurality voting is giving way to majority voting. Majority voting requires directors to receive a majority of votes cast in order to be elected. Far fewer votes can prevail with plurality voting. Not everything is improving, though. Multiple-class stock structures are on the upswing, permitting insiders to maintain voting control. Its no surprise theres still work left to do in reminding corporate managements and boards that they are beholden to shareholders, not their own self-interest and control. And more shareholders need to come to the realization that theyre part-owners of public companies, so they should act like it. Recent years have delivered accelerated progress, though, strengthening shareholders more than ever. If we investors continue to take longterm views and weigh factors such as corporate governance policies in our investment decisions and proxy voting, well see far more victories toward the goal of having stronger companies to invest in and a stronger marketplace.

The smartest move I ever made, many years ago, was getting out of a big brokerage and transferring all my money to AARP, which charged relatively little. At the brokerage, my money was just sitting there, doing nothing, while I was charged very steep annual fees. J.R., Las Vegas The Fool responds: Many years ago, traditional fullservice brokerages did charge steep fees. Thats partly what drove the growth of discount brokerages that started out with fewer services but lower fees. Today, there are many solid brokerages charging relatively little and also offering many services, such as banking, retirement planning, mutual funds, annuities and more. (Learn more about some good ones at broker.fool.com.) AARP still offers financial services, such as immediate annuities and insurance. It has partnered with Schwab, for example, providing financial advising and brokerage services. (Learn more at AARP.org.) Its great that you realized how harmful steep fees can be. If a firm is taking hundreds of dollars from your account every year, it better be more than making up for that with great performance.

Valero Energy (NYSE: VLO) was recently one of the cheapest stocks in the S&P 500. Having both fans and doubters, it deserves some consideration for a berth in your portfolio. Based in San Antonio and sporting a market value north of $20 billion, Valero is one of Americas largest oil refiners and ethanol producers. Its stock doubled in value over the past year, and yet it still looks compelling, with its price-toearnings (P/E) ratio in the single digits and a solid dividend yield. (Its dividend has grown by about 8 percent annually, on average, over the past five years.) Valero has been profiting from strong international demand for energy products. Naysayers dont like Valeros vulnerability to volatile commodity prices and worry that the company may suffer from proposed regulations requiring cleaner gasoline. Bulls see a lot of promise in the U.S. shale boom and like that Valero (and others) have been buying thousands of rail cars in order to transport inland crude to its refineries. Valero has also made investments in next-generation biofuel technologies such as green crude and algae farms, although each will take considerable time to prove effective at commercial scale. No company or stock is a sure thing, but Valero has been looking intriguing at recent levels. If management executes well, there could be a lot of upside to this oil stock.

First-time buyers are struggling to take participate housing resurgence

The Philadelphia Inquirer

Alan J. Heavens

Philadelphians Luis Valenti, 25, and Eleonora Barbieri, 26, are getting married July 14. If planning a wedding doesnt seem stressful enough, the couple are settling July 10 on their rst house, a duplex listed at $155,000. Two major events in the lives of anyone, and just four days apart. With the housing recovery and interest rates going up, we

thought the time was right, said Valenti, who works in the nancial industry. They also wanted to lock into an FHA loan by June 1, before the rules changed, Barbieri said. Since then, all loans with less than 10 percent down require that mortgage insurance be paid for the life of the loan. In addition, mortgage insurance will no longer be canceled when the loan balance is 78 percent of the original amount. They beat the deadline.

First-time buyers like Valenti and Barbieri are key to the health of residential real estate. So there is concern, at least on the national level, that there might not be enough of them to sustain the housing recovery. This buyer segment is so important, in fact, that the National Association of Realtors surveys 3,000 members monthly for the latest percentages. The April survey, said spokesman Walt Molony, put rst-time buyers at 29 percent, weaker

than the historic norm of 40 percent. Other research organizations report similar ndings. Tight credit, competition with investors for lower-end properties, and limited inventory typically are cited as reasons. Economist Kevin Gillen, of the University of Pennsylvanias Fels Institute, maintains that since the housing bubble burst in 2007, many lower-income home buyers have been effectively cut out of the market.

Cheesecake Factory succeeds with indulgence for common man


Los Angeles Times

Tiffany Hsu

The Cheesecake Factory is at once an ostentatious den of dining and decorative excess as well as a homespun throwback to family tradition. Witness the orid murals and Frenchinspired checked oors, the dozens of cheesecakes in sumptuous avors such as white chocolate caramel macadamia, and the calorie-laden dishes that regularly land the chain on extreme eating lists. But behind the extravagant menu and interior design, theres a classically American story involving an entrepreneurial housewife and a cheesecake tweaked from a newspaper recipe. The business has its roots in Detroit after World War II, when Evelyn Overton sold baked goods from her home kitchen so that she could keep an eye on her young children. A quarter-century later, she and her husband, Oscar, relocated to Southern California with $10,000 to their names. Inspired by their work, their son David Overton eventually opened the rst Cheesecake Factory restaurant in Beverly Hills, Calif., in 1978, using money that his accountant helped raise. I didnt know what I was doing, Overton, 67, said recently over a lunch of sliders, iced green tea and a cup of tortilla soup. And I really didnt like the name I thought we had so much more to offer. But in the end, he said, I couldnt think of another name. In its rst year, the Cheesecake Factory made no money. Now 35 years old and based in Calabasas, Calif., the company earns nearly $2 billion a year in revenue. Celebrities such as Halle Berry and Justin Bieber have been known to drop in, Overton said. There are 162 Cheesecake Factory restaurants in the U.S., along with 11 eateries under the Grand Lux Cafe brand and one RockSugar Pan Asian Kitchen. Cheesecake Factory locations gross, on average, more than any other chain in the U.S., Overton said. The Honolulu branch pulls in $20 million a year. The company made its market debut in 1992, when Overton agreed to an initial public offering in large part because he wanted to help his mother retire. The chain enjoyed a 25 percent revenue growth each year through 2007. But when the recession hit, Overton said, he took too long to realize that it was here to stay. The companys stock plunged from roughly $30 a share in 2007 to $5 a share in late 2008 before management moved to scale back store openings. In recent years, the chain has had to raise food prices slightly to keep up with the increase in commodity costs. I should have reacted quicker, Overton said. The company has since embraced caution. It has no plans to spin off Grand Lux and RockSugar as separate public companies, and offers few bargains or advertisements across its restaurants. Overton said his business only participates in social media because thats the future. But with the stock now near an all-time high at about $41 a share, Cheesecake Factory is slowly easing back into expansion mode. It opened its rst licensed international location in Kuwait last year, recently launched an eatery in Dubai and has several more on the way in Asia. Barring remote states such as Alaska and the Dakotas where the chain probably wont go Overton said the Cheesecake Factory is also

growing in the 40 states with current locations. Many of the new openings are in the suburbs, where stores smaller than the customary 10,000-squarefoot urban restaurants are working out well, he said. These days, the Cheesecake Factory offers more than 200 menu items and more than 30 cheesecakes. Its a far cry from opening day, when the menu was two pages and featured a dozen cheesecakes. When I trust my own taste buds, thats what people like, he said. Im not a gourmet and I dont try to be. The common man likes my taste. Often, that means heaping portions drenched in salt and butter.

The Cheesecake Factory regularly ends up on the Xtreme Eating list compiled by the nonprot advocacy group Center for Science in the Public Interest. This year, its Bistro Shrimp Pasta entree was called out for being crammed with 3,120 calories and 89 grams of saturated fat equal to three orders of classic lasagna and a slice of tiramisu from the Olive Garden, according to the group. The average adult should cap daily consumption at 2,000 calories and 20 grams of saturated fat, the group said. The restaurant chain has recently tried to be more welcoming to scalewatchers, launching a socalled Skinnylicious menu two years ago with 52

dishes featuring less than 590 calories each. Theres also a gluten-free menu in the works with more than 70 items. But, at its core, the Cheesecake Factory is an indulgent brand, Overton said. Its hard to make delicious food without some calories, he said. Going out to a restaurant like this is very celebratory. The hard-core guest wants what they want, they have their favorites, and thats what they order. Another factor in the chains appeal: its ambience. The solid wood countertops are inspired by the Victorian details around San Francisco. Overton hasnt been to Egypt a planned store opening

there this year was put off due to political unrest but the columns holding up Cheesecake Factory ceilings look like they are from a Luxor temple. Now, though, the decor is becoming more muted and modernized, as the Cheesecake Factory seeks to update its riotous looks. Youve always got to change and move into the future, Overton said. Hes also deeply involved in the music selection at the restaurants, picking each song instead of relying on packaged lists, usually weeding out thumpy tunes and hip hop. Before the restaurants, before the thrill of running a business, music was Overtons rst love.

Fraud laws should treat all perpetrators equally


he famous tale about infamous robber Willie Sutton says he was asked why he stuck up dozens of banks. His reply, so the story goes, was, Because thats where the money is. modern-day scammers who prey upon the elderly may have similar thoughts. to counter that, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey is offering the Senior investor Protections enhancement Act of 2013. the penalties for perpetrating nancial fraud range from $5,000 to $100,000 for individual offenders and $50,000 to $500,000 for businesses. mr. Caseys bill would add on civil nes of $55,000 to $150,000 for individuals and $100,000 to $550,000 for businesses that defraud victims who are 62 or older. the Pennsylvania senator is acting on the understandable impulse that the elderly deserve added pro-

tection against such crimes because their higher rates of mental, physical and cognitive impairment make them more vulnerable to being bilked out of savings, pensions or investments. But the consequences of such crimes are the same for victims who are 61 or less. in fact, some young potential victims would be hurt harder by such losses than some of their elderly peers. Despite the bills good intentions, it would create a special class of victim, which strikes us as unfair. mr. Casey introduced a similar bill twice before, but they failed to draw bipartisan support. there may be a reason for that. A lot of Willie Suttons are out there targeting young and old because thats where the money is. the nations laws should be geared to crack down on all of them.

NoNe oF this opinion piece constitutes legal advice, but most people know that remedies are available when a conservator, power of attorney, or trustee mismanages William the affairs of an entity Levinson to which he owes a duciary duty. Contributing the Pennsylvania Columnist State University is past the point at which the Legislature, or some other external authority, needs to determine whether these remedies are now relevant, reasonable, and necessary. You can re and humiliate a person of unquestionable character and integrity like Coach Joe Paterno, and you can also kill another human being. What happens to you afterward depends entirely on whether you can justify the action in question. the growing preponderance of the evidence indicates that the trustees action was based per their own admission at the time on highly incomplete information. this information proved subsequently to be faulty. the trustees defective judgment, however, went far beyond what they did to Coach Paterno. their action admitted falsely on Penn States behalf that the University approved or facilitated Jerry Sanduskys crimes in any way, shape, or form, and this has caused enormous damage to Penn States reputation.

Penn State needs outside intervention


Character and integrity determine what one does after one makes an error in judgment, as the trustees did on Nov. 9, 2011. the trustees hired public relations rms primarily, as i see it, to defend their own bad decisions. then they brought in the Freeh Group to investigate the events surrounding Jerry Sanduskys activities. the resulting report was internally inconsistent at best, and more problems have been uncovered since its release. the trustees would have known about these defects had they studied the report before two of their leaders afrmed its ndings of guilt at a public meeting in July 2012. the trustees afrmation of the Freeh Report provided the NCAA the excuse it needed to slap unprecedented sanctions on the University, and in contravention of the NCAAs own written rules. President Rodney erickson agreed to the sanctions without consultation with the Board of trustees, who supposedly have duciary responsibility for the University, on the grounds that the NCAA had threatened a four-year shutdown of Penn States football program. if the trustees believed ericksons story, they should have pursued legal remedies against the NCAA. two NCAA ofcials, ed Ray and Ameen Najjar, denied, however, that the football death penalty was ever on the table. the trustees failure to make any identiable effort to nd out who is telling the truth, and then act accordingly, underscores the perception that nobody is minding the store.

there is also widening evidence of the NCAAs lack of integrity, and violations of its own rules, with regard to universities other than Penn State. Florida Attorney Benjamin Haynes has even used the word extortion, and its denition as a felony in Floridas criminal code, with regard to the NCAAs threats to a University of miami football player. the controlling majority of Penn States trustees has taken no identiable action in response to these serious questions about the NCAAs tness to regulate collegiate athletics. the Board has also taken no identiable action to reassess the Freeh Report despite negative assessments by prominent attorneys. trustee Kenneth Frazier instead reacted to an alumnus criticism of the report with an angry tirade that included a derogatory remark about the alumnus skin color. A handful of trustees are attempting to do their jobs by challenging both the Freeh Report and the NCAA sanctions. the controlling majority has reciprocated with implied threats to remove members of this minority from the Board. Penn State cannot heal itself while this majority remains in charge, and the Legislature or some other outside authority needs to intervene.

Embracing the spirit of a community leader


SometimeS, the solution we are looking for is right in our own back yard. that was the case when a discussion began between myself and Dotty martin, the editor Joe of our community Butkiewicz paper the Dallas Executive Post, Vice President editor of Advertising Denise Sellers and advertising associate Diane mcGee. We wanted a way to honor the good people and achievers of the Back mountain. our sister paper the Sunday Dispatch has a very popular Person of the Year event celebrating the good people of the greater Pittston area. We wanted to acknowledge people who foster community spirit in the Back mountain area. We wondered what we could name our Back mountain award? the answer was as close and comfortable as a quiet tree-lined street in old Dallas: Wed name the award for the late state Sen. Charles Lemmond, a Back mountain resident who lived the example of community spirit in his actions and wonderfully pleasant demeanor. Charlie Lemmond died in 2012 but with the blessing of his wife Barbara and daughter Judy we announced that we would be accepting nominations from the readers of the Dallas Post. And when it came time to pick a winner from the nominations, we found a couple whose contribution to the Back mountain literally cuts through the community back yard. Judy Rimple and her husband David have been champions of the creation, expansion and care of the Back mountain trail, a project more than 20 years in the making. Way back in 1990 or so Rimple wanted to ride her bike from the Back mountain to the Susquehanna River. Lacking a suitable path she wandered into a local bike shop and was directed to a group of likeminded people who were meeting in the Back mountain and working on a variety of projects to improve the community. one of those projects was the trail. Judy joined the group and over time - decades of time - land that once was a railroad bed has been acquired, cleared, marked, traversed and enjoyed. the Back mountain trail starts in Luzerne and follows a path adjacent to state Route 309. it is a simple path, sometimes in close earshot of the highway, sometimes drifting away. As it passes into Kingston township it rises gently. that path is covered by a canopy of trees and leads to a bridge and a waterfall and a little notch valley and nice view points. it has things of the country birds and small mammals and burrs and ticks and weeds and owers. it attracts people and people with dogs and joggers and runners. it is the sort of amenity every community should have, one piece of many that makes the Wyoming Valley area a nice place to live. So to honor the Rimples and the trail, built by an army of volunteers, with an award named for Lemmond was just magical. What could be more down home? Well, heres something to reect on. Charlie Lemmond lived in Dallas for 50 years but he is not from the Back mountain. He was born in Hazleton and raised in Forty Forty. Judy Rimple lives in the Back mountain but she moved here from Colorado. She made our home her home and made it better with unwavering enthusiasm and determination. it would be appropriate to mention that the presentation of the award tuesday night - in the Lemmond theater on the campus of misericordia University in Dallas township - was attended by university president micheal macDowell and his wife tina. they are from somewhere else Colorado and California and though they are about to retire from serving the school they worked to make a leading institution in the region, they have decided to continue to live here. Look back far enough and we are all from some other place. our love of the past and tradition should be in balance with the new energy and suggestions of people who join our community. Arent we lucky then? Charlie Lemmond made the Back mountain his home. So did Judy Rimple, and the macDowells and thousands of others. Name another valley community and we can repeat the thought. Now look out the back door and think of whats possible. if with perseverance, ingenuity and determination a trail can be carved from here to there, what cant we do? if we all work together.

Ardor for president has cooled in Germany

resident Barack obamas quick visit to Germany Wednesday after the G-8 summit in Northern ireland provided him with at least one insight on top of his talks with Chancellor Angela merkel. that had to be that the Germans ardor for him has cooled since he rst ran for president. During the 2008 campaign he received an adoring reception in Berlin, where he spoke to an audience of 200,000. this time, at the citys Brandenburg Gate, 6,000 tickets were handed out and an estimated 4,500 people turned up to hear him. He must have grasped the Germans disappointment as more than a dozen protesters from Amnesty international criticized his failure to carry out his promise to close the prison at the U.S. Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. the surveillance systems that he has maintained and expanded from previous administrations, targeting foreigners and Americans, also do not play well among Germans who experienced rst the Nazis then the east German Stasis activities against them in the

days of Hitlers and Communist rule. mr. obamas talks with ms. merkel were important, given the critical role that a healthy Germany plays in keeping other parts of the european economy from falling into ruin. ms. merkel couldnt say much publicly since she faces elections in September and some Germans see the situation as one in which they work hard, pay taxes and keep their economy stable while the Cypriots, Greeks, irish, italians, Portuguese and Spanish dont, yet expect the Germans to pick up the shortfall. the proposal by mr. obama to reduce U.S. nuclear weapons by another third, if the Russians reciprocate, makes sense and must have sounded good to the Germans. the Russians, however, do not appear to be enthusiastic, citing Americas efforts to build up its missile defenses as inconsistent with the trust needed for mutual force reduction. Besides, with the gridlock in the Senate, the Germans and Russians should be skeptical on whether the president can get such a treaty ratied.

With Syria, America sidelined,barely relevant


WASHINGTON The war in Syria, started by locals, is now a regional conict, the meeting ground of two warring blocs. On one side, the radical Charles Krauthammer Shiite bloc led by Iran, which overies Contributing Iraq to supply Bashar Columnist al-Assad and sends Hezbollah to ght for him. Behind them lies Russia, which has stationed ships offshore, provided the regime with tons of weaponry and essentially claimed Syria as a Russian protectorate. And on the other side are the Sunni Gulf states terried of Iranian hegemony (territorial and soon nuclear); non-Arab Turkey, now convulsed by an internal uprising; and fragile Jordan, dragged in by geography. And behind them? No one. Its the Spanish Civil War except that only one side the fascists showed up. The natural ally of what began as a spontaneous, secular, liberationist uprising in Syria was the United States. For two years, it did nothing. President Obamas dodge was his chemical-weapons red line. In a conict requiring serious statecraft, Obama chose to practice forensics instead, earnestly agonizing over whether reported poison gas attacks reached the evidentiary standards of CSI: Miami. Obama talked chain of custody, while Iran and Russia, hardly believing their luck, reached for regional hegemony the ayatollahs solidifying their Shiite crescent, Vladimir Putin seizing the opportunity to dislodge America as regional hegemon, a position the U.S. achieved four decades ago under Henry Kissinger. And when nally forced to admit that his red line had been crossed a game changer, Obama had gravely warned what did he do? Promise the rebels Arms. Thats it? Its meaningless: The rebels are already receiving small arms from the Gulf states. Compounding the halfheartedness, Obama transmitted his new calculus through his deputy national security adviser. Deputy, mind you. Obama gave 39 (or was it 42?) speeches on health care reform. How many on the regional war in Syria, in which he has involved the United States, however uselessly? Zero. Serious policymaking would dictate that we either do something that will alter the course of the war, or do nothing. Instead, Obama has chosen to do just enough to give the appearance of having done something. But it gets worse. Despite his commitment to steadfast inaction, Obama has been forced by events to send F-16s, Patriot missiles and a headquarters unit of the 1st Armored Division (indicating preparation for a possible larger force, explains The Washington Post) to Jordan. Americas most reliable Arab ally needs protection. It is threatened not just by a ood of refugees but by the rise of Irans radical Shiite bloc with ambitions far beyond Syria, beyond even Jordan and Lebanon to Yemen, where, it was reported just Wednesday, Iran is arming and training separatists. Obama has thus been forced back into the very vacuum he created but at a distinct disadvantage. We are now scrambling to put together some kind of presence in Jordan as a defensive counterweight to the IranHezbollah-Russia bloc. The tragedy is that we once had a counterweight and Obama threw it away. Obama still thinks the total evacuation of Iraq is a foreign policy triumph. In fact, his inability to negotiate a Status of Forces Agreement that would have left behind a small but powerful residual force in Iraq is precisely what compels him today to re-create in Jordan a pale facsimile of that regional presence. Whatever the wisdom of the Iraq War in the rst place, when Obama came to ofce in January 2009 the war was won. Al-Qaeda in Iraq had been routed. Nouri al-Malikis Shiite government had taken down the Sadr Shiite extremists from Basra all the way north to Baghdad. Casualties were at a wartime low, the civil war essentially over. We had a golden opportunity to reap the rewards of this too-bloody war by establishing a strategic relationship with an Iraq that was still under American sway. Iraqi airspace, for example, was under U.S. control as we prepared to advise and rebuild Iraqs nonexistent air force. With our evacuation, however, Iraqi airspace today effectively belongs to Iran . The U.S. air bases, the vast military equipment, the intelligence sources available in Iraq were all abandoned. Gratis. Now were trying to hold the line in Jordan. Obama is learning very late that, for a superpower, inaction is a form of action. You can abdicate, but you really cant hide. History will nd you. It has now found Obama.

Its hard to get behind law on saggy pants


READER WARNING: Theres going to be puns. How could there not be puns in a column about Wildwood, N.J., enacting a ban on saggy pants that expose peoples butts or underwear along its boardwalk. The law will take effect July 2, The Associated Press reports, with a rst offense punishable by a $25 ne. Subsequent violations might reap nes as high as $200 and 40 hours of community service. Presumably youd have to be really cheeky to merit that sort of penalty. This is just adding a little bit of decency to our town, Mayor Ernest Troiano Jr. was quoted as saying. Its amazing and this is a pun how far decency has fallen through the cracks. Yes, that was a pun to die for, and thank goodness you were warned in advance before you did. I myself take a stern view of people parading about with posterior decolletage. Really, do we have to look at that? If we want to be grossed out, we could look at really large people in small bathing suits at the nearby beach. It is hard not to sympathize with a Jersey Shore resort that is trying reg Henry Pittsburgh Post Gazette to maintain standards when at any minute Snooki and her pals might arrive. I am surprised they didnt pass an ordinance requiring tuxedos to be worn on the boardwalk. But any suggestion that Wildwood is trying to be the fashion police was squelched by city Commissioner Pete Byron, also quoted in the AP story despite not making any puns. Theres a line that gets crossed between being a fashion statement and being obnoxious, he said. Families can feel threatened. He is so right. Buttocks are anathema to family life. If too much is made of buttocks, a little kiddie can wake up screaming in the night because he thinks a monster pair of buttocks is hiding under the bed. As it is, the attempt by Wildwood to become Mildwood has led to cries of racism, just as it has in other places with similar bans. Civil libertarians say such laws are unconstitutional. Thats because the trend called sagging, which is said to have originated in the prison system, was made popular by hip-hop artists. (It is a relief to know that I am nally trendy. I am at the age when a lot of personal sagging is going on, although not yet my pants.) I read in The New York Post that the rapper The Game who is apparently famous, which explains why I have never heard of him has denounced the Wildwood law as racist and promised to pay the nes for the rst ve people ticketed. This is very sporting of The Game but call me naive I am not sure that racism is involved in this case. Maybe he could have a chat with The Situation, one of the dopier characters in the Jersey Shore cast, concerning what else? the situation. Certainly racism is a lingering legacy in this country, but I dont think the cause of equality is helped by blaming everything on race. I think we do better by assuming the best about people in the absence of clear evidence to the contrary in Wildwoods case, that its just wellmeaning silliness inspiring the law. So while the residents of Wildwood have my sympathy, I dont think a law is needed, especially one that goes into effect just before the Fourth of July, Americas great celebration of freedom. Fashions change, as does societys denition of obscenity, dooming Wildwood to ght a hopeless rearguard action against the tush menace.

These assaults on our freedom have been largely caused by a failure on the part of our elected ofcials to do their jobs and abide by the rule of law -- our U.S. Constitution, a failure by the courts to protect citizenry and uphold the rule of law, and fairly on the part of We the People to know our rights and stand up for them when they are threatened or violated. We have congress and President Obama working in cahoots to enact Legislation that renders Americans powerless in the face of government surveillance and indenite detention. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) erode our most basic constitutional rights by re-authorizing sweeping police powers to be used by the federal government. Believing that the NDAA is a threat to anybody causing trouble, which under present government leadership means anyone exercising their free speech rights. Constructing the laundry list of abuses, injustices, and userpotions meted out upon the American people by this government in past years alone, it is a wonder we have any freedoms left to call our own and not this dismantling of all we hold dear did not come about overnight. What started with the subtle undermining of religious freedom back in 1970s and 80s has snowballed into an all-out attack on all aspects of our freedoms. Nothing has been spared, from our First Amendment Rights to free speech, religion, assembly, press, redress our Second Amendment right to gun ownership our Fourth Amendment right to free from unreasonable searches and seizures, ad the Fifth Amendment assurance of due process, to name just a few. We have surveillance drones getting ready to take the skies over Orlando, Florida. Only communist countries use these drones, not free countries under Gods and mans rule. It is expected under Obama there will be 30,000 such drones ying overhead; some of which will be armed to kill and used to monitor and control political demonstrations, sporting events, and concert arenas. We are being subjected to military drills with black hawk helicopters and armed forces in major American cities from Boston to LA while marauding SWAT teams are unleashing their repower on unsuspecting homeowners guilty of nothing more than reaching for a ashlight.

The U.S. House recently passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would end abortion after the point when scientists agree unborn children can feel pain. It passed in the House by a mostly partisan vote of 228-196. HR 1797 notes, By 8 weeks after fertilization, the unborn child reacts to touch. After 20 weeks, the unborn child reacts to stimuli that would be recognized as painful if applied to an adult human, for example, by recoiling. The science behind the concept of fetal pain is fully established and Dr. Steven Zielinski, an internal medicine physician from Oregon, is one of the leading researchers into it. He rst published reports in the 1980s to validate research showing evidence for it.

PERSPECTIVES
tutionality of Act 13 is forthcoming. In the time since the state Appellate Court produced its decision, there has been one important revelation regarding the dangers associated with the shale gas industry. It has come to light that PA Department of Environmental Protection has substantiated 161 cases of water contamination associated with drilling activities within the past few years. This makes clear that controlling the shale gas industry is rooted in a concern for health and safety, and not just a matter of avoiding inconvenience. The constitution of Pennsylvania clearly states that citizens have the right to access clean drinking water. Allowing the shale gas industry to rapidly expand its activities throughout Pennsylvania is an affront to our constitution. The last hope for citizens who wish to protect themselves from the inherent dangers of unconventional drilling, and other related activities, rests upon the right of local municipalities to adopt and enforce appropriate zoning regulations. We sincerely hope that if Correale Stevens is appointed to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, which appears to

www.timesleader.com TIMES LEADER be likely, then he will recognize the importance of allowing local municipalities to protect the health and safety of citizens and vote to uphold the unconstitutionality of Act 13.

a member group of the statewide Taxpayer Group known as The PTCC (Pennsylvania Taxpayers Cyber Coalition), I would like to personally thank State Representative Phyllis Mundy for her public support of HB 76, (The Property Tax Independence Act). As Representative Mundy stated in her letter I will vote for HB 76 if and when the majority party allows for a vote. On behalf of our members, I say thank you Representative Mundy for your support, and we do take yes for an answer. In addition I would like to ask Representative Mundy as the Democratic Chair of the House Finance Committee, (where the bill is currently stuck as Representative Kerry Bennighoff, the Republican Chair has stated the bill will stay until SB 76 has made its way through the State Senate) that she place the full weight of her ofce behind moving HB 76 out of Committee and to the oor, for a vote. Thank you for all you do for the good people of Pennsylvania, Representative Mundy, and I thank you for put-

ting the taxpayers of our Great State ahead of party politics.

Led by Governor Tom Corbett, the state of Pennsylvania has appealed the zoning decision to the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court. But due to the resignation of one Supreme Court justice, this appeal has been in limbo. Now that Governor Corbett has nominated Correale Stevens to ll the vacancy within the states highest court, it appears that a ruling on the unconsti-
