Lawmakers fight grant cuts

CDBG reductions could sting cities
WASHINGTON Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives want to cut the federal Community Development Block Grant budget, a move that others say could hurt already-strained municipal budgets. Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton said Casey Thursday the CDBG program is a tool used to provide vital city services such as blighted property demolitions and street paving. As the House moves forward with its plan, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, has called on Congress to adequately fund the program that he maintains will help towns and cities move important economic development projects forward. The U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee approved $3.15 billion for the CDBG, but the House is proposing to cut that number to $1.67 billion. The Houses decision to drastically reduce CDBG funds after By BILL OBOYLE



a 25 percent cut in the last few years is the wrong course. The Senates bill will ensure that communities across Pennsylvania have the resources they need to create jobs and spark economic growth, Casey said during a Washington teleconference.

Leighton said the citys CDBG funds also go to a number of important community serviceoriented nonprots in the city including the Commission on Economic Opportunity, Ruths Place shelter for homeless women and the Osterhout Free Library. These organizations have already been decimated by other federal and state cuts as well as declining individual contributions in a struggling economy, he said. Casey highlighted local data that show the impact the program has had on municipalities across the state, and he discussed levels at which the program has been previously funded and the impact See CDBG | A12

Rodriguez a RailRider for a little while

Rehabbing Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez runs onto the field Thursday night at PNC Field prior to the start of the Railriders game against the Louisville Bats. Rodriguez, who is playing his way back to the big league after off-season hip surgery, slammed a two-run home run in the game to help SWB to an 8-0 victory. For the story, see Page 1B.

HARRISBURG Penn State University has reached tentative settlements totaling about $60 million so far with men who claim to have been sexually abused by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, a trustee said Thursday. The trustee, Ted Brown, said he was unsure of how many claims have been settled and how many remain in negotiations. We approved settlements for approximately $60 million, Brown said. He said that gure does not cover every claim made and that he expected trustees to be asked to approve more when tentative agreements are reached. The trustees voted last Friday to authorize members of a committee to approve settlements on the universitys behalf, without detailing how many accusers have come forward with sexabuse claims involving Sandusky, how many have

settled and how much money might be involved. A person familiar with the discussions told the AP on Thursday that about 25 of 31 outstanding claims were covered by the approximately $60 million in settlements the trustees approved. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity to avoid giving information that the university has chosen not to reveal. Brown said trustees were briefed on the dollar gure in private before the vote. School ofcials have said they will not publicly discuss specic gures until the deals have been made nal, which could happen in the coming weeks. The deals are limited to a range of dollar values that the board received in a closed-door session before their public meeting last Friday at a branch campus and another meeting held June 25. Sandusky, 69, was convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse, including violent attacks on boys inside school facilities, after a three-week trial last summer in which eight victims testied against him. He is serving a 30- to 60-year prison term and maintains he was wrongfully convicted. He is pursuing appeals.

WILKES-BARRE No stranger to controversy, Rolling Stone magazine has stirred emotions and raised free speech debate by putting alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover of the issue on newsstands today. But that issue will not be available in some outlets in the Wyoming Valley because some vendors dont want to sell the edition. Sheetz, with ve locations in Luzerne County, will not offer the issue for sale on its newsstands. Sheetz joins CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens and other chain stores in its

decision. A spokesman for Turkey Hill Minit Markets, with more than 20 locations in Luzerne County, said Thursday the company has not made a decision yet. In Wilkes-Barre, Anthracite Newsstand on Public Square decided after discussion it would continue to sell the issue when it hits shelves this morning. Co-owner Ann Marie Bossard said she knows the people who buy Rolling Stone every week are going to look for it. More important, she said, they wanted to give people a choice. It is a freedom that we have, said Bossard, of Wilkes-Barre.

Online series makes Emmy history

House of Cards nominated for top drama

Sen. McCain plans to stall Dempseys nomination

Associated Press

AP Television Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) Netixs House of Cards made Emmy history Thursday with a top drama series nomination, the rst time that televisions leading awards have recognized a program delivered online as equal in quality to the best that TV has to offer. The nomination, one of nine nods earned by the political thriller, is a marker in the unfolding revolution in how we receive and watch video entertainment. Its really groundbreaking, said Ted Sarandos, chief content ofcer for Netix. Its beyond our most bold expectations. We were thinking a single nomination would be a win Its as much a win for Internet television as it is for the content creators. The most Emmy nominations, 17, went to miniseries American Horror Story: Asylum. Close behind was Game of Thrones with 16 nods, while Saturday Night Live and the Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra earned 15 nominations each, including nods for stars Michael Douglas and Matt Damon. The bonanza of nominations for Game of Thrones is the swords-andfantasy shows most-ever and includes a best drama series nod and three acting bids, including one for Peter Dinklage. House of Cards stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright received acting bids, along with a number of other primarily big-screen actors who have migrated to TV for powerhouse projects, with Douglas and Damon among them. Spacey suspects the Netix haul will entice all kind of people into the creating-original-content business. I think is a great thing because more shows will get produced, more writers will get hired, more actors will get hired, more directors will get hired, more production will happen in this industry and thats a good thing economically as well as artistically, he said by phone from Baltimore. Joining House of Cards and Game of Thrones in the best drama series category are Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Mad Men and last years winner, Homeland. Mad Men, which last year missed out on the best drama trophy that would have been its record-setting fth, eclipsing fellow four-time winners Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law and The West Wing, gets another shot this year. Mad Men and its creator failed to receive any writing nominations for the rst time in the series six-year history. The major broadcast networks were shut out of the prestigious drama series category, a repeat of last year and a par-

ticular blow with the entry of Netixs streamed drama. Boardwalk Empire was the only show not to return in the category, its spot claimed by House of Cards. Besides American Horror Story: Asylum, others nominated in the miniseries or movie category are Behind the Candelabra, Phil Spector, Political Animals, Top of the Lake and The Bible, which was a hit for the History channel and is getting a sequel on NBC. Hot British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who gained fame in Sherlock and played the villain in Star Trek Into Darkness, is nominated as best lead actor in the movie and miniseries category for Parades End. In the comedy series category, nominees are The Big Bang Theory, Girls, Louie, Modern Family, Veep and 30 Rock, recognized for its nal season. Another outgoing comedy, The Ofce, didnt receive a best series nod. Another Netix series, Arrested Development, didnt earn a best comedy series but scored three nominations, including one for star Jason Bateman. Some pundits thought it might earn onlines rst best comedy series nod, given that it won a trophy in the category for Fox before the network canceled it. A 6-year-old TV academy rules change allows online entries to compete with cable and broadcast programs, although so far Internet shows have popped up only in lower-prole categories. That changed with the 65th Primetime Emmys. It certainly is a marker of the new era. It will send shock waves through the industry, Tim Brooks, a TV historian and former network executive, predicted on the eve of the nominations. They were announced by Aaron Paul, a previous winner for Breaking Bad and nominated again this year, and, in a surprise, Emmy host Neil Patrick Harris. He lled in for House of Cards

actress Kate Mara, kept in Santa Fe, N.M., by a planes mechanical malfunction. Special thanks to Kate Mara for getting me out of the house before my kids start screaming and crying, Harris said. An in-demand emcee, the How I Met Your Mother star earned a bid for hosting Broadways Tony Awards. Joining Spacey in the contest for best drama series actor are Hugh Bonneville of Downton Abbey; Jon Hamm of Mad Men; Jeff Daniels of The Newsroom and Damian Lewis of Homeland, last years winner. Kevin Bacon, one of the big-screen stars trying their hand at TV, was not recognized in the category for The Following. Breaking Bad, now in its nal episodes on AMC, goes out with a best drama Emmy nomination. Whats so great about this thing is its going to bring us all back together. A little family reunion. So we get to come back together and celebrate the time we had together and the work that we did. Its very exciting, said Paul. Actresses nominated for their drama series work besides Wright include Vera Farmiga of Bates Hotel; Michelle Dockery of Downtown Abbey; Elisabeth Moss of Mad Men; Connie Britton of Nashville and Kerry Washington of Scandal. Claire Danes, last years winner for Homeland, got a nod. If Washington wins, she will be the rst African-American to claim the best drama actress Emmy. Besides Bateman, the nominees for best actor in a comedy are Jim Parsons for The Big Bang Theory: Matt LeBlanc for Episodes; Don Cheadle for House of Lies; Louis C.K. for Louie and Alec Baldwin for 30 Rock. Jon Cryer, last years surprise winner for Two and a Half Men, didnt make the cut this year.

WASHINGTON Sen. John McCain said Thursday he will block Army Gen. Martin Dempseys nomination for a second term as Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman due to his dissatisfaction with the ofcers responses to questions about the potential use of U.S. military power in Syria. McCain, R-Ariz., pressed Dempsey during his conrmation hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee to provide his opinion on which approach in Syria carries greater risk for U.S. national security interests: continued limited action on the part of Washington, or more signicant steps such as establishment of a no-y zone and arming rebel forces Dempsey with the weapons they need to stem the advance of President Bashar Assads forces. Dempsey said he has provided President Barack Obama with options for the use of military force, but he declined to detail those choices. During a testy exchange with McCain, Dempsey said he would let this committee know what my recommendations are at the appropriate time. Dempseys response, McCain said, contradicted his commitment to provide the committee with his personal views, even if those opinions differ from the administration in power. McCain told reporters after leaving the hearing room that he planned to put a hold on the nomination, essentially blocking any further action until he gets an adequate response from Dempsey. I want to see him answer the question, McCain said. The situation in Syria, where a civil war has killed almost 93,000 people, gured prominently at Thursdays hearing amid an increasing clamor among Assads opposition for active U.S. involvement. Senators including Carl Levin, D-Mich., the committee chairman, and McCain have pressed Obama to take a more forceful approach to defeat Assads forces. While the administration has authorized lethal aid to rebel forces, it isnt trying to enforce a no-y zone in which Syrias combat aircraft would be barred from ying, or otherwise intervene militarily. Senator, I am in favor of building a moderate opposition and supporting it, Dempsey told McCain. The question whether to support it with direct kinetic strikes is a decision for our elected ofcials, not for the senior military leader of the nation. The use of kinetic strikes, a military term that typically refers to missiles and bombs, is under deliberation inside of our agencies of government, Dempsey said. Asked about Dempseys comments, White House spokesman Jay Carney said Obama always asks his military commanders for options and that is true in an arena like Syria.

Scranton native tapped for post

Air shows at Avoca likely grounded,official says

PITTSTON TWP. For nearly two decades the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport hosted annual air shows that drew thousands of spectators. But while some people like to wax nostalgic about the events, the head of the airport says its highly unlikely theyll play host to the spectacles any time soon. The possibility resurfaced during Thursdays meeting of the airports Bi-County Board as Lackawanna County Commissioner Corey OBrien said hes elded calls from residents interested in reviving the shows that ran annually at the airport from 1983 to 2000. The run came to an end when major construction projects began at the airport, and as they continued, the shows faded into the history books. The projects included the addition of a new terminal building, a parking expansion, new air trafc control tower and now a roadway expansion project. Airport Director Barry J. Centini said the shows are unlikely to return for a number of reasons, some internal, some external. The cost is prohibitive, he said, noting that at a minimum they will require a $300,000 commitment from the airport. He noted that in the 18 years they ran at the airport, the overall gross for the airport was about $500,000. Some years there were losses, many they broke even. Only a few were profitable and those prots were minimal, he said. Also factoring in is the industry itself. The air shows arent as popular as they once were and the number of performers have dwindled. The military iers such as the Navys Blue Angels and Air Force Thunderbirds have also scaled back because of budget cuts. Without military aircraft, the shows would struggle to draw, Centini said. I hate to say it, but at this point in time, it looks like its a dying business, he said. The airport also has fewer areas for parking than it once did, which would require shuttle buses and off-site parking. I think logistically wed have a hard time putting an air show on, Centini said.

State Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane has named Scranton native Joseph C. Peters to the post of senior executive deputy attorney general in charge of communications. Peters, 56, was a police ofcer in Scranton, after which he worked his waythrough law school. He then worked for the Ofce of Attorney General for Peters 16 years. He headed up its Bureau of Narcotics Investigation and later served as the executive deputy attorney general of what was then known as the Drug and Organized Crime Division. Peters was later a special assistant to the U.S. Attorney General as an organized crime and racketeering prosecutor, and went on to work in the White House for four years under two presidentsBill Clinton and George W. Bushghting terrorism and drugs. As communications director, Peters will be responsible for the press ofce and the OAGs education and outreach unit, which informs, educates and protects Pennsylvanians before they can be victimized.

UGI outage affects 5,600 customers

About 5,600 UGI Electric customers were temporarily without power for about 30 minutes Thursday afternoon following an equipment failure, a company spokesman said.

The splash pad never operated until the summer of 2012. Recently, Frati said, the city hired Quad3 Group, an engineering and architectural rm on North Washington Street, to provide a plan to get the splash pad working properly. He said all costs estimated to be between $10,000 and $20,000 will be paid through an insurance claim. Ofcials say they hope Quad3s plan solves the problem and the pad is back in operation soon. Thursdays high temperature was 96 degrees in Wilkes-Barre, according to the National Weather Service in Binghamton, N.Y. The average temperature recorded at the WilkesBarre/Scranton International Airport so far this month was 74.4 degrees 3 degrees hotter than normal.

WILKES-BARRE Coal Street Park was barren Thursday. Hardly any children were at the playground, and the citys splash pad wasnt working. The splash pad has been out of commission all year, and it hasnt operated much since it was installed in 2011. With daytime high temperatures stuck in the 90s all week the temperature topped out Thursday at 96, two degrees shy of the 1953 record a run through shooting, spraying water for many had to wait. Were waiting for water-quality tests to come back from the health department, said Butch Frati, the citys public operations director. We are also awaiting additional parts that are necessary to get the system working properly. We expect the splash pad to be open early next week. Frati said new pumps were installed Wednesday, but other parts have not arrived. He said when the feature pumps run, it causes water to ood the chamber. So until all parts arrive and are installed, we cant run the system, Frati said. Problems with the pad have dogged the city since its installation. The concrete for the $145,439 splash pad installed in 2011 didnt cure properly and had to be removed. According to the city, Parrish Pools, Hunt Valley, Md., was the subcontractor that did the original work, and the general contractor was Bitting Recreation Co., Harrisburg. Parrish Pools was hired as a sub-contractor by Bitting through the COSTARS program, the city said. Opened a year late The delays caused the splash pad CLARK VAN ORDEN/THE TIMES LEADER to open nearly one year later than expected.

Avoca to build office on site of former church



Blue Cross hosts Duck Derby event

To support the American Cancer Society, BlueCross of Northeastern Pennsylvania will host the 25th annual Duck Derby fundraiser from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Coal Street Park. Ducks are to be pulled at 1:15 p.m. Those who wish to race may buy one rubber duck for $5 or six ducks for $25. All proceeds benet the American Cancer Society.

AVOCA Avoca is another step closer to transferring its municipal operations to a new borough building. The borough purchased the former Ss. Peter & Paul Roman Catholic Church on Main Street and adjoining parking lot on July 3 for $144,000. The borough building we have is just too small, said council President Joe Satkowski. And its old and needs repairs. Plans call for moving the municipal ofces and police department from the 113-year-old structure on Main Street to a newly constructed municipal building on the church grounds. The new one-oor facility will be handicapped accessible. Some ofces in the current building are not.

Accessing the mayors and secretarys ofces requires a climb of about 20 steps. Also, the amount of parking spaces will increase considerably. There are ve parking spots at the borough building, but the new facility will have more than 20. Satkowski said hes not sure what will happen with the old municipal building once the new one is constructed. The borough plans to tear down the church once funding is secured. Satkowski hopes state funding can help with that cost. The borough already received a $450,000 state grant in 2012 that was used, in part, to buy the land; the remainder will be used to help construct the building. The grant is from the Local Share Account, which receives gaming money generated by casinos, including Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. Grants are handled by

36 Polish families petitioned Bishop Michael J. Hoban to allow them to start a parish. Permission was granted and the church opened on Easter morning April 11, 1909. The building was replaced by the current church on June

Phillip Sladicka, pastor, celebrated the Mass and conducted the ceremony. Following the service, a purple ribbon was afxed to the front door signifying the closing and a procession was conducted to St. Marys Church on Hawthorne Street. The ribbon remains on the church door. The two parishes merged and became known as Queen of the Apostles Parish. The hall underneath the church was used until recently. The church held its annual spring chicken dinner there in 2012. Sladicka said the churchs stained glass windows were removed and used in a church in another part of the country. TIMES LEADER

Bernanke scolds Congress: You could have done more

MARTIN CRUTSINGER WASHINGTON Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Thursday that Congress could do more to help the U.S. economy this year but instead has focused on reducing the federal decit. During his second appearance before lawmakers this week, Bernanke told the Senate Banking Committee that the Feds low interest rate policies have carried an awful lot of the burden to drive economic growth. Fed ofcials would have been very happy to share that burden with Congress, he added. The Fed chairman made the comments only after Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., prodded him to evaluate Congresss role in supporting the economy after the recession. Bernanke said lawmakers have spent too much energy on implementing tax increases and spending cuts when the economy was growing only modestly. Those actions could end up reducing economic growth by 1.5 percentage points this year, he has said. But Bernanke said it was not the Feds role to threaten to raise interest rates or take other actions if Congress did not follow more appropriate policies. I dont think its my place or the Federal Reserves place to try to force Congress to come to any particular outcome, Bernanke said. Corker said Congress has Committee. Bernanke said the Feds efforts to boost the economy remained tied to the job markets health and ination. There is no preset course for the Feds $85 billion-amonth bond-buying program, he said. Any change will depend on the economys performance. He also said that the Fed could hold its benchmark short-term interest rate near zero even after unemployment falls below 6.5 percent. One reason the Fed might consider keeping the rate near zero longer is if ination fails to move closer to the Feds 2 percent target rate. Another would be if the decline in unemployment is caused by people leaving the workforce. The government counts people as unemployed only if they are actively looking for a job.

Biden mulling White House run

Vice President Joe Biden is opening up about a possible third presidential run in 2016. In an interview with GQ magazine, the former senator and now vice president, who twice has run for president, says the rst judgment hell make about whether to seek the Democratic nomination is to determine whether he has the energy for it. Second, the 70-year-old Biden says hell ask himself whether hes the best person for it. Biden is seen as a possible contender to succeed President Barack Obama, as is former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Democratic insiders say Clinton would start out as the heavy favorite if she entered the race.

City is largest to file for bankruptcy

Detroit has become the largest city in U.S. history to file for bankruptcy. State-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr on Thursday asked a federal judge permission to place the city into Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection. If approved, the filing would allow Orr to liquidate city assets to satisfy a host of creditors and city pensioners lined up to recoup losses from bad bond investments and unpaid contracts. A number of factors most notably steep population and tax base falls have been blamed on Detroits tumble toward insolvency. Detroit lost a quarter-million residents between 2000 and 2010.

Mob trial witness found dead

A man who had hoped to testify in the ongoing racketeering trial of reputed mobster James Whitey Bulger and vocally criticized him has been found dead, authorities said Thursday. The body of Stephen Rakes was found Wednesday afternoon in Lincoln, Mass., with no obvious signs of trauma, the Middlesex District Attorneys Ofce said. Authorities were conducting an autopsy to determine the 59-year-old Quincy mans cause and manner of death. Rakes attended Bulgers trial every day through Tuesday, when he was last seen there.


Opposition leader gets harsh sentence

Russian opposition leader and Moscow mayoral candidate Alexei Navalny was convicted of embezzlement Thursday and sentenced to ve years in prison, a harsh ruling his supporters called an obvious attempt to shut down a foe of President Vladimir Putin and intimidate other opposition activists. In a surprise move, prosecutors later asked that he be kept free pending appeal, possibly reecting an attempt to soothe public anger and to lend legitimacy to a mayoral race expected to be won by a Kremlin-backed politician. Navalny, who rose to fame as an anti-corruption blogger before leading unprecedented protests that revealed the depths of anger against the Kremlin, was found guilty of heading a group that embezzled $500,000 worth of timber from a state-owned company in 2009.

kirov, russia

JOHANNESBURG Hospital visitors say Nelson Mandela smiled and nodded Thursday his 95th birthday and South Africans celebrated upbeat reports about the former presidents health after weeks of worrying that he was on the verge of death. Children sang Happy Birthday at school assemblies nationwide, and many honored the man known as the father of the nation by performing acts of charity for 67 minutes, symbolizing Mandelas 67 years of public service. World leaders praised the antiapartheid leaders life of sacrice and vision. Outside the Pretoria hospital where Mandela was admitted for a recurring lung infection, well-wishers paid tribute to him and some received slices of a large birthday cake doled out from inside the compound. We dont only recognize him on this day. We put smiles on other peoples faces, we donate to other people less fortunate, said Thato Williams, a 13-year-old student at Melpark Primary School in Johannesburg, where 700 students gathered in a hall lled with posters created to honor Mandelas contributions to peace and education. Mandela remains very fragile, and many details of his medical condition have not been divulged or are tightly controlled by his family and President Jacob Zuma. The news that his health had improved was another dramatic turn in the life of a man who became a global gure of sacrice and reconciliation during the ght against white minority rule in South Africa. When I visited him today, I found him really stable, and I was able to say, Happy Birthday, and he was able to smile, Zuma said, according to the South African Press Association. His ofce had recently said Mandelas condition was critical but stable, but a statement Thursday said he was steadily improving. Several months ago, Zuma gave an

overly optimistic health assessment, but his remarks Thursday were matched by comments from some members of Mandelas family. Mandela is making remarkable progress, said one of his daughters, Zindzi, after tense weeks. Granddaughter Tukwini Mandela said the day was bittersweet for the family. Obviously were really grateful for people sending us good wishes and being generally supportive, but, you

know, my grandfather is not well, hes in hospital, she added. We would have preferred him to actually celebrate this day with us out of the hospital, but we are where we are, and were just keeping our heads up and were being strong. Defense Minister Nosiviwe MapisaNqakula, who also visited Mandela, described him as smiling and alert. He opens his eyes and nods, as if to say: Im here with you and appreciate what youre doing, she said.

Pakistan to try to mend fences with afghanistan

Officials weekend visit to Afghanistan may be prelude to talks with Taliban.
Associated Press

KATHY GANNON ISLAMABAD, Pakistan Pakistan is sending a top ofcial to the Afghan capital this weekend to try to mend fences with its uneasy neighbor, and hanging in the balance are U.S. efforts to arrange peace talks with the Taliban. The trip comes roughly two weeks after the Taliban closed their newly opened politi-

cal ofce in the Gulf state of Qatar following angry complaints from Afghanistan that the Islamic militant movement had set it up as a virtual rival embassy, with a ag and sign harkening back to the days they ruled the country. The political ofce was part of a U.S. plan to launch peace talks with the Taliban to end the protracted war, with American and other NATO combat troops scheduled to withdraw from Afghanistan by the end of next year. But the talks ended before they could even begin amid the uproar last month. Pakistan, which had helped persuade Taliban to agree to

sit down with the Americans and possibly with the Afghans after that now contends that intransigence, suspicion and Afghan President Hamid Karzais reluctance to invite his political opponents at home to the negotiating table in Qatar are hobbling efforts to start the talks. They (Taliban) listen to us. We have some inuence but we cant control them, Sartaj Aziz, Pakistans special adviser on national security and foreign affairs, told The Associated Press in advance of his trip to Kabul on Saturday. But they (Taliban) also

say that the High Peace Council is not fully representative, Aziz said, referring to Karzais 80-member negotiating team. President Karzai should invite other people to join them. Mohammad Ismail Qasimyar, a senior member of the Afghan High Peace Council, told the AP that if the Taliban were making wider representation on the negotiating team a condition to restarting talks, then it would be worth considering. But he was suspicious of Pakistan, wanting assurances rst that the demand was from the Taliban and not Pakistan.

WASHINGTON A bipartisan compromise on student loans promises better deals for students and parents over the next few years but could spell higher rates if it gets more expensive for the government to borrow money as expected. The Senate deal shifts decisions on interest rates from the whims of Congress to the nancial markets and is expected to come to a vote next week, well before students returning to campus this fall would face costs to borrow money to pay for tuition, housing and books. The deal heads off a potential doubling of rates on some students loans that would cost students an extra $2,600 if Congress did nothing. We have gone through weeks of negotiations and we have an agreement, said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., said students beneted: For every one of them, the interest rates on their loans will be lower. At least for now. The compromise could be a good deal for students through the 2015 academic year, but then interest rates are expected to climb above where they were when students left campus in the spring. Even in announcing the compromise, it was clear the negotiations were dicey. While this is not the agreement any of us would have written and many of us would like to have seen something quite different, I believe that we have come a very long way on reaching common ground, Durbin told reporters. Moments later, Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa, chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pension Committee, said he would revisit the whole agreement this fall, when his panel takes up a rewrite of the Higher Education Act. Can we change it? Sure, we can change it. Its not the Ten Commandments, for Gods sake, Harkin said. Harkin did little to hide his unhappiness with the compromise but said there were few options to avoid a costly hike on students returning to campus this fall. Students are going to have a better deal than they would have had otherwise, Harkin said. Under the deal, all undergraduates this fall could borrow at a 3.85 percent interest rate. Graduate students would have access to loans at 5.4 percent, and parents would be able to borrow at 6.4 percent. Those rates would climb as the economy improves and it becomes more expensive for the government to borrow money. Undergraduates last year borrowed at 3.4 percent or 6.8 percent, depending on their nancial need. Graduate students had access to federal loans at 6.8 percent and parents borrowed at 7.9 percent.

Alleged sexoffenderwanted in Detroitwaives extradition


WILKES-BARRE Authorities in Detroit have 10 days to pick up David Zarn from the Luzerne County Correctional Facility or he likely will be released. Zarn, 46, of Yorktown Road, Mountain Top, was captured Monday by Luzerne County detectives and Wright Township police on a warrant from the Detroit Police Department charging him with eight counts of criminal sexual contact involving two girls. The arrest warrants by Detroit police issued on May 7 allege Zarn sexually assaulted the two girls for several years in the mid- to late-2000s. Zarn told one of the girls the lewd acts were their little secret, according to the warrants.

Zarn waived his right to an extradition hearing before Judge David W. Lupas on Wednesday. Detroit police have 10 days to pick up Zarn and transport him to Wayne County, Mich., to face the felony sex charges. He is being held on $100,000 bail. Separately, court records state Zarn was charged by Wright Township police and county detectives in October after two girls, ages 16 and 14, claim he sexually assaulted them inside his Mountain Top home. The mother of the elder teens boyfriend contacted authorities after learning of a text message the girl had sent to her son about allegedly being assaulted by Zarn, according to the criminal complaint. Zarn is scheduled for trial in county court in September.

Unwelcome ATVs, trucks are damaging new recreation trail



Since the Black Diamond section of the D&L Trail opened in Wright Township on July 8, Scott Everett said the feedback has been positive. Plenty of people have been using the trail for biking, running and walking, he said. The use is growing each week as more people become aware that its here, Everett said. Work should soon begin on extending the trail from Mountain Top north toward Wilkes-Barre. it be off-limits to motorized vehicles. Were building a trail on land thats been open to the locals for years and years, and its hard when the rules change, Everett said. Theres always a period of time when people think they can still use it the way they have been. Everett said there are signs posted prohibiting the use of motorized vehicles. The trail a 10-mile stretch that runs from Mountain Top to White Haven is patrolled by the Pennsylvania Game Commission under a cooperative agreement. Wildlife Conservation Ofcer Dave Allen said the damage, which included fences being knocked down by pickup trucks, occurred Sunday night between 7 and 8 p.m. In addition to the fences, said Allen, ATVs damaged the trail surface and also attempted to create new trails on adjoining private property. The incident was witnessed by a bike rider using the trail at the time, he added.. The person didnt call it in right away or I couldve responded immediately, Allen said. From what the

WRIGHT TWP. Scott Everett was happy to see a few bike riders using the newly opened D&L Trails Black Diamond section in Wright Township on Thursday. But he wasnt happy about the reason that brought him there. Everett serves as the trail manager for the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor, one of the groups responsible for building the trail that opened on July 8. Everett was at the trail this week to survey and repair recent damage caused by vehicles. When the property for the trail was purchased by the federal government in 2001, a stipulation was that

witness told us, there were multiple ATVs, possibly six, and two full-size pickup trucks. Allen said he does have a few leads and is continuing to investigate. Meanwhile, Everett and several volunteers were out in the heat Thursday to repair the damage. The trail will remain open during the repairs, and the incident didnt really surprise him, he said. Similar

problems have occurred on trails in White Haven, Lehigh Gorge State Park and the Lehigh Valley. When a trail opens, theres always a period of time for the public to adjust to the restrictions, and the problems eventually go away, Everett said. This is typical of that pattern. The Game Commission and Bureau of Forestry will continue to patrol the trail, he added.

Two women charged with child neglect after child is burned

PLAINS TWP. Two women were arrested Thursday on charges they neglected to take a 2-year-old girl suffering from burns to the hospital. Tania Marie Staer, 32, and Amanda Melissa Lopez, 22, of Ridge Street, Hanover Township, were arraigned by District Judge Diana Malast on child endangerment charges. They were jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $50,000 bail each. Lopez gave several explanations for not taking the toddler to the hospital, such as not having child safety seats in their vehicle, according to police. She gave no answer when police asked her why she didnt call 911 for an ambulance. Police were told the toddler was burned by hot water poured by a 3-year-old boy when they lived on Mack Street in Plains Township in late May. The toddler suffered burns to her ear, neck, head and back. She was taken into protective custody by Luzerne County Children and Youth Services, treated at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center and transStaer Lopez

Lopez told police the toddler had redness to her head and back but that it did not seem that bad, the complaint states. Diaper rash cream and a bandage were placed on the toddlers burns two days after she was injured, police said. Lopez told police the toddlers burns had worsened the next day, May 30, and she told Staer: We cant home care this anymore. We have to take her to a

doctor. Lopez and Staer allegedly never took the toddler to the hospital for treatment. Staer told Lopez she did not take her daughter to the hospital because there were no back seats in their minivan, the complaint states. Lopez and Staer relocated to Ridge Street in Hanover Township on May 30. Police asked them how they transported their ve children, including the toddler who had suffered burns, to their new residence. Lopez responded the children

sat on the oor of their minivan. When police asked Lopez and Staer why they didnt stop at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital or Geisinger South Wilkes-Barre, two hospitals they would have passed when the moved from Mack Street to Ridge Street, Lopez responded they took back roads to Hanover Township, according to the complaint. Preliminary hearings are scheduled on July 23 before Malast.

LeRoy Iden Hoch, 83, of Warminster and Harveys Lake, died Wednesday. Born Sept. 21, 1929, in Kingston, he was a son of the late Ruth Hughes Hoch Parsons and LeRoy Iden Hoch. An only child, Roy lived in Mountain Top with his mother, a nurse, and his father, a pharmacist who died when Roy was 3 years old. He was cared for by loving aunts while his mother worked. In 1937, he acquired a new family when he entered Girard College in Philadelphia with 1,900 other students. There, he learned to compete and get involved, traits he maintained throughout his life. After graduating from Girard in 1947, Roy continued his education at the University of Pennsylvania, studying accounting and industrial economics there before completing his masters of business administration at the Wharton School of Business. Roy joined the Ford Motor Co. in a training program for one year and was drafted into the U.S. Army. He honorably served his country from 1953 to 1955 during the Korean Conict. Upon his return from the service, his job with IBM took him to the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and overseas to Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Britain, which satised his love of travel. He returned to Washington and in 1964, White Plains, N.Y. Roy lived in Manhattans Upper East Side for 42 years, where he was fondly known as the Mayor of Yorkville. He remained involved in the community by running block parties, acting as a court monitor and, following Sept. 11, a neighborhood rapid responder. In 2006, Roy relocated to Anns Choice, a continuing care community in Warminster,

Thomas William Wisniewski, 62, of McAdoo, died peacefully Monday at Geisinger Medical Center, Danville. He walked the walk and talked the talk, a nurse who cared for him there said shortly after his death. His strong faith in God and the compassion he exuded touched many peoples lives. Everyone he knew was greeted with a genuine smile and likely a good conversation. Tom was a loving husband, father, brother, uncle and friend, and his life story is truly an inspiration. Tom grew up in the Green Ridge section of West Hazleton and went to Transguration School and West Hazleton High School, where he joined the marching band as a drummer. His musical talent followed him to college, where he played in a Christian rock band and toured in several states. He attended St. Pius X Seminary, Dalton, and studied a short time at St. Marys College, Kentucky, before graduating from the University of Scranton in 1972. He was a connoisseur of pie; cherry and pumpkin were his favorite avors. He worked with his brother, Jack, on a Mrs. Smiths pie truck and later got his own delivery route. He had great nostalgia for the Mrs. Smiths brand. Later he had an Arnold bakery route, which he expanded into the Williamsport area. Tom settled in McAdoo and began working for the state of Pennsylvania, rst in a PennDOT ofce and later for state Sen. Joseph Gurzenda. His career continued as he became a journalist and photographer for the Sunday Independent. He became editor of the Hazleton bureau and covered many landmark stories in the Hazleton area in the 1980s. He forever remained a newshound; he loved reading the newspaper, and he rarely missed the 6 p.m. news until the advent of the DVR. He loved taking photos, preserving lifes memories for his family and friends. Tom married Susan Orman in 1979, and they spent more than 34 years together. The newlyweds often joined their friends for parties at the former Hazle Park Lake, and they frequented New Englands scenic coast. Toms community meant a great deal to him, and he was eager to serve it in any way he could. He was a member of the McAdoo Lions Club and one of the McAdoo ambulances rst certied EMTs. His efforts were instrumental in forming Greater Hazletons rst paramedic unit. He was a man of faith and an eloquent speaker, becoming a Eucharistic minister and lector at St. Kunegundas Church, McAdoo. He joined a revitalization effort and helped organize McAdoos food pantry and church heritage tour. He was a member of Holy Rosary Church, Hazleton. With the support of other dedicated volunteers, Tom resparked McAdoos tradition of block parties by starting the annual Southside Days festival. He often foretold McAdoos potential as a business and tourism hub. Many people in his home town knew and looked up to him. Showing his inner entrepreneur, he bought Bresky Baker Supply and helped turn it into the bustling cake and candy business it is today. Amid the late hours he spent at his new venture, he kept his longtime job as a salesman for Kraft Foods. He serviced grocery stores in different regions over the years, including Hazleton, Reading, Wilkes-Barre, Scranton and the Poconos until his retirement. His colleagues respected him for his fairness and for being a straight shooter, and he considered many of them personal friends. His perseverance showed in hundreds of creative store displays he built. From his sons birth in 1990 until today, he was a terric example of a father. He made life fun for young Adam and built Wizzyworld, a backyard clubhouse they enjoyed together. When his son became a Cub Scout at age 7, Tom joined as a leader. Whether he was at day camp, a Pinewood Derby race, a weekend campout or even a mall sleepover, Tom left lasting memories on his son and the other boys. He proudly helped his son with Scout projects well

into his teenage years. Tom loved his siblings, nieces, nephews and his whole family. He often had holiday cookouts and invited them each year to Christmas Eve dinner. He looked forward to each vacation he took with his wife and son, including a recent trip to Nova Scotia and a road trip through the American West. Tom was intently dedicated to his sons education at MMI Preparatory School, Freeland. He became involved with school events, rallied school spirit among the students and contributed his guidance to the schools board, beneting the education of countless youth. He was loved by many at MMI. Tom always appeared exuberant and in good health, but for 19 years he silently had a rare blood disorder. For more than a decade, he did not need treatment. But when he did, he became a poster child for cutting-edge trial medicines that are today considered standard. He continued to work and be an active family man. When his illness converted to leukemia and he needed a bone marrow transplant, his sister Gloria was a matching donor. During his six-month stay at Geisinger, battling infections and complete weakness, friends and family chipped in with cards, photos and, most important, prayers. The nurses and staff were like his family at Geisinger. When his transplant was brought into his room in 2009, they surrounded him, smiling, like it was his birthday party. He was against steep odds, and his doctors considered him a medical miracle. Tom never lost his faith in God and he praised Geisingers chaplain program and the faith his caregivers openly showed. Meanwhile, Adam and his classmates at MMI were about to graduate. Tom vowed not to miss this milestone and was granted a leave from the hospital. Looking frail but strong at heart, he was greeted at the ceremony with wild applause. He made a remarkable recovery, and by the next year was back to his energetic self. He joined a support group in which he inspired many great people like himself who were battling cancer. Tom was as proud of his family as they were of him, and he watched his son attend Scranton, his alma mater. He found out he needed a second marrow transplant, which is common, but unexpectedly, a brief illness cut his life short. Please keep his family in your prayers, including his wife, Sue; son, Adam; sisters, Pat Hovanetz and Gloria Schott, her husband, Ron Schott, and their sons, Bill and Peter; sisterin-law, Theresa Krauzlis; and various other relatives whom he united two years ago in the familys rst reunion. Preceding him in death were his father, William Wisniewski, in 1955; mother, Wanda (Yotko) Wisniewski, in 2004; and brother, Jack Krauzlis, in 1998. Great people like Tom are touched by the love and care of the Geisinger family every day. Gifts can be sent to the department where Tom received his transplant. Checks can be written to Geisinger Health System Foundation GMC Cancer Fund, with a memo of Tom Wisniewski memorial, and mailed to Geisinger Health System Foundation GMC Cancer Fund, 100 N. Academy Ave., Danville, PA 17822. The patients will thank you for helping them recover. Tom also advocated donating to Red Cross blood drives. A private funeral will be held at the convenience of the family, and he will be laid to rest in Transguration Cemetery, West Hazleton. The Stanley E. Anilosky Funeral Home, McAdoo, is assisting the family with funeral arrangements.

Berwick man charged with assault after incident involving ex-girlfriend

SALEM TWP. Township police recovered a .45-caliber handgun and ammunition from the vehicle of a man charged with firing several rounds from a handgun at an ex-girlfriend and another man last month, according to a search warrant filed Thursday in Luzerne County Court. Steven Eugene Houser, 49, of Berwick, was arraigned Monday on two counts each of aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct and a single count of loitering and prowling at night. He remained jailed Thursday at the county correctional facility for lack of $50,000 bail. A search warrant affidavit alleges Zina Holter and Robert Orlando were walking through woods near Thomas Road in Salem Township on June 29 when they heard noises they believed came from a bear. Holter and Orlando said as soon as they heard noises, they heard a bang, saw a flash with sparks, then heard four more bangs they realized was gunfire. Orlando pointed a flashlight in the direction of the noise and spotted Houser holding a firearm, the affidavit states. Orlando told police he was beaten by Houser with the firearm, according to the affidavit. Houser was arrested by Briar Creek Township Police in Columbia County during a traffic stop on Summerhill Avenue in Berwick on Monday. A search of his vehicle allegedly uncovered a loaded .45 Colt revolver and 46 rounds of .45 ammunition, according to an inventory receipt. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on Aug. 7.

Plains Twp.official charged with drunken driving

PLAINS TWP. Township Code Enforcement Ofcer Kenneth Sheer Jr. had a blood-alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit after police investigated a disturbance at a trailer park last month, according to court records. Police led two misdemeanor counts of driving under the inuence and summary citations of careless driving and public drunkenness against Sheer, 49, with District Judge Diana Malast on Thursday. Police allege Shefler had a blood-alcohol level of .229 percent on June 29. An adult driver in Pennsylvania is considered legally intoxicated with a blood alcohol level of .08 percent. According to the criminal complaint: Police investigated a disturbance involving Shefler and two people at a trailer in the East Mountain Ridge Trailer Park on Oriole Court. Shefler told the officer he purchased a trailer and found two squatters inside and wanted them out. Shefler had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath, slurred speech, blood shot glassy eyes and was very off balance, police said. The officer told Shefler to stay while he went inside the trailer to talk to two people. The officer left the trailer as Shefler drove away at a high rate of speed, the complaint states. Police pursued Shefler to Canary Court in the trailer park. Shefler allegedly told police he left because he thought the officer would handle the incident for him. Police advised Shefler that he displayed signs of being under the influence of alcohol. Shefler became upset and began to argue with the officer, causing neighbors to come out of their trailers, police said. Sheer was transported to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital for a blood test. Sheer could not be reached for comment on Thursday.

PA lottery rakes in record profits

The Pennsylvania Lottery achieved records in sales and profits, even as Gov. Tom Corbett fought to hand its management over to a private British firm. The lottery Thursday reported sales of $3.7 billion in the fiscal year that ended June 30. Thats up $219 million, or 6 percent. Profits were relatively flat at just above $1 billion, rising $6.5 million, or less than 1 percent. Profit margin shrank from above 30 percent to below 28 percent, as the cost of sales rose by nearly $200 million, or about 8 percent. Corbett wants to hire Camelot Global Services to run the lottery, saying it promises higher and more

Death warrant signed for killer

Gov. Tom Corbett has signed a death warrant for the man who brutally beat a 2-year-old to death in April 2008. In a trial that drove veteran police officers close to tears, a York County jury convicted Harve Johnson, the boyfriend of Darisabels mother, of first-degree murder and sentenced him to death in November 2009.

In the Senate, crisis averted

Out of the bargain, Democrats get conrmation votes on several other stalled nominees, most notably Marylander Tom Perez for labor secretary and Gina McCarthy for Environmental Protection Agency administrator. Republicans have objected to Mr. Perez, falsely accusing him of being more of a liberal activist than a public servant. But the root of the problem in his case and Ms. McCarthys was an objection to the agencies themselves. Ms. McCarthy was being held up by Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt over a dispute about a oodway project in his state that she had nothing to do with. The agreement comes on the heels of a bipartisan vote on a comprehensive immigration reform bill and provides at least some glimmer of hope that the two parties can work together on big issues, at least in the Senate. Use of the nuclear option, while warranted under the circumstances, likely would have ended any hope of further compromise and dealmaking. The problem with Mr. Reids nuclear option was that it wasnt nuclear enough; all he wanted to do was to prevent libusters of executive branch nominees, not to change the rules for judicial nominations or legislation. Republicans would still have been free to gum up the works. They still will be and so would the Democrats if and when they lose their majority. As much as this deal is to be celebrated for afrming the principle that the president should have broad latitude to hire whom he likes for top executive branch posts, it does not resolve the problem that the libuster is now used as a matter of routine to effectively require a 60-vote supermajority for all but the most insignicant legislation. Mr. Reid and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell agreed to some minor changes to libuster rules at the beginning of this years congressional term. But whats really needed is the reform proposed by a group of junior senators last year to return to the talking libuster that is, to require a libustering senator to actually hold the oor and not just indicate an intent to block a vote and to put the onus on the minority party to produce the 41 votes to maintain a libuster rather than on the majority party to come up with 60 votes to end one. Such a reform is needed if the Senate wants to maintain its tradition of respect for the minority while still fullling its constitutional duty. The Baltimore Sun

Faced with another crisis over one of its least democratic traditions, the U.S. Senate appears to have blown off enough steam to avoid a messy and divisive showdown over the use of the libuster. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and a handful of Republicans, notably Sen. John McCain, tentatively agreed to a deal that will allow several of President Barack Obamas executive branch nominees to receive conrmation votes a rare but encouraging example of the two parties working together. Ultimately, though, it does not resolve the fate of a procedural tactic that has been abused by both Democrats and Republicans (though somewhat more egregiously by the GOP) to stie majority rule in a way that hinders the nations ability to govern itself. A 71-29 vote shortly before noon to cut off debate on the nomination of former Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray as head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau signaled the acceptance by both sides of an agreement that should stave off use of the socalled nuclear option to change Senate rules on libusters by a simple majority vote. Mr. Cordrays conrmation battle was emblematic of the worst aspects of the GOPs delaying tactics. Republicans did not raise serious objections to Mr. Cordray but rather to the agency he was nominated to head. They lost the legislative ght over the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau a key reform after the nancial meltdown of 2008 and they have tried since to render the agency ineffective by preventing conrmation of a permanent director. Thats a perversion of the Senates duty to advise and consent on presidential nominations. The price Republicans extracted for dropping their planned libusters was for the White House to withdraw its nominees for two slots on the National Labor Relations Board another agency Republicans were seeking to render ineffectual through abuse of the conrmation process and replace them with two others. Though the GOP had raised some questions about one of them, former union ofcial Richard Grifn, the main objection to his nomination and that of Sharon Block was the presidents use of recess appointments in their cases. Republican senators contend that the president violated the Constitution, and the Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case.


Cmon, Rep. Mundy Support homeowners

This letter is regarding legislators who try to pull one over on the voters of Luzerne County through their willingness or unwillingness to vote on legislation before the House or Senate. State Rep. Phyllis Mundy has stated in a recent letter to the editor that she will vote on House Bill 76 if the majority party allows for a vote. Excuse me, Ms. Mundy, this is not about a party. This is about the interests of homeowners of Pennsylvania. Its high time this country stops party politics and starts thinking about the people. I nd it very interesting that members of both parties have co-sponsored both the House and Senate bills on property tax elimination. In any organization in which Ive been involved, I never allowed anyone to inuence me about voting for an issue if I felt it was the right thing to do. I always voted or supported what my conscience felt was right. And if I were a representative and I really wanted to help the homeowners of Pennsylvania, I would co-sponsor the bill as have Rep. Gerald Mullery and Sen. John Yudichak. Both, by the way, are Democrats. Lets stop the spin, join in and get this on the oor so that it can be discussed and revised if necessary or voted on as is. Lets not be a fence sitter or cause a stalemate because there are not enough party supporters. I want a leader, not a follower. We want legislators who make up their own minds and are not inuenced by their parties or lobbyists. Im an independent thinker and I would hope all those I vote for, no matter his or her party afliation, would also be an independent thinker. I think its time we stopped dancing around the issue. You do not like this legislation or you would co-sponsor it. You would do everything in your power as a member of the House Finance Committee to move it forward. You would show you really care about keeping our homes from sheriffs sales. By the way, this isnt a political issue, it is a property tax issue. Those of us who write these letters have no political ax to grind. Our only concern is saving our homes from tax sales. We worked hard and long to have a home, only to lose it at the end of our years to a sheriffs sale, thanks to non-caring legislators who think they know whats best for their constituents. Gov. Rendell promised tax elimination when he was governor by duping the people into voting for gambling, but what happened with that? They decided to use the money for other things and forgot about the homeowners.

Main St., Wilkes-Barre, PA 18711 Here is your chance, Ms. Mundy. Stop the spin and for once be honest why you will not co-sponsor HB 76! Most of us will not end up with the pension youll be getting to save our homes. Start thinking about these homeowners who want to remain in their homes until they leave this Earth. planting grass on the soccer eld, and nally the The Newport Football League for adding the shed and helping to maintain the practice eld.

Look to ourselves for source of violence

First it was the war on poverty that would end violence. The government supplied everything but the kitchen sink. That didnt work. Then it was the lack of education. Trillions was poured into the education system. The minute someone was born, he or she entered a government program. That didnt work. The man in the home, or not in the home, would stop violence. That didnt work. Then religion was blamed for violence. Then it was more funding for police protection and 9/11 happened. Then single moms became the answer. That didnt work. Evil has no ownership on race, ethnicity, gender, or religion. It is people who are the problem. We always blame everything but ourselves.

Want to learn truth? Dont watch Fox

I just love it when letter writers direct people to Fox News to learn the real truth about what is going on and how bad president Obama is. Fox News is nothing but the mouthpiece for the Republican Party. Thats like saying if you want to protect your chickens, get a fox to guard them. Fox wouldnt know the truth if it hit it in the face. It has made so many hate-lled statements and never apologize for any when they are proven wrong. Its employees get marching orders from the GOP leaders and all day long repeat what they are told. They are not journalists, they are puppets with a bad attitude and are full of hate. As long as the price is right they will do and say anything. Its just a good example of what money can buy. I just read about how Obama is the worst president we ever had. I said now here is another Fox faithful. If you want the truth, just look around and see what is happening with the economy even after the GOP has stopped all the job bills and everything else Obama tries. He is working constantly and all Fox News feeds its listeners is what a bum he is. Do some research and compare his vacation time and accomplishments to Bush. We are safer and more people are working. And if the GOP-led Congress members would get off their duffs, we could have a lot more people working. You want to hear the truth, tune into NPR radio and TV.

Goodwills good will shouldnt be ignored

Goodwill Industries, where some workers make less than $1 per hour. Goodwill argues rightly that the alternative would be no jobs at all for those with special needs. Jobs are created specically and tailored for those with severe disabilities. While Goodwill reaps a marginal benet to its enterprise by having tasks completed by those employees, the real benet goes to the worker. The low-paying jobs are highly regulated and amount to a small percentage of Goodwills payroll. Some ourish in their roles and earn raises and competitive wages. Much as some labor-rights activists would like to make the issue about wages, its really not about money. The benets extend beyond a pay rate: Each day, Goodwills special-needs workers show up to accomplish a task, interact with colleagues, form friendships and gain a sense of self-respect. The Sentinel

George J. Kochis

Goodwill Industries shouldnt be faulted for abiding by federal labor laws that allow it to pay low rates to people with disabilities. In recent months, a lot of attention has been paid to reports that Goodwill pays as little as 22 cents per hour to its special-needs employees. Yet those employees benet signicantly in other ways and those benets wouldnt exist be it not for Goodwills practices. Goodwill is one of more than 3,400 employers in the United States that take advantage of the Special Minimum Wage Certicate issued by the U.S. Department of Labor. The certicate is granted in rare circumstances where employers create jobs for people with multiple mental and physical disabilities in ways that primarily benet the worker. In a front-page story Wednesday, our partners at abc27 News documented that practice taking place at Harrisburgs

From page 1A that the Houses severe cuts could have. Pennsylvania received approximately $200 million in scal year 2011, $236 million in 2010 and $219 million in 2009, he said. U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, along with several of his colleagues, signed a letter urging the House Appropriations Committee to provide $3.3 billion for CDBG. Barletta said he has always supported the community development block grants and will continue to ght for them. When the appropriations bill hits the oor, I will take the opportunity to offer an amendment in the hopes of restoring the funding, Barletta said. In the letter signed by Barletta and the others, several points were made about the CDBG program: More than 1 million lowand moderate-income persons have been helped through single-family, owner-occupied rehabilitations, home ownership assistance, energy-efcient improvements and leadbased abatement. The program created or retained 302,622 jobs for lowand moderate-income people. It has beneted nearly 30.5 million people through public improvements such as senior centers, child care centers and centers for people with disabilities. It has beneted more than 95 million people through services such as employment training, meals and other services for the elderly, services for abused and neglected children and assistance to food banks. Casey said CDBG funding is crucial to efforts to rebuild and revitalize communities by generating long-term job growth and economic stability, especially for the middle class. I have personally witnessed how efciently communities have used this funding to reinvigorate their economies and to create jobs, he said. This program provides crucial resources to over 1,200 entitlement cities, urban counties and states across the country and has a proven track record in its contribution to economic and community revitalization.

Says he is angry over glamorization of bombing suspect

Photographer releases photos of Tsarnaev

Rolling Stones cover photo, a softly-lit image of a brooding Tsarnaev, insults ofcers killed in the line of duty, their colleagues and their families by glamorizing the face of terror. It also could be an incentive to those who may be unstable to do something to get their face on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, he said. Rolling Stone said the cover story on Tsarnaev was part of its longstanding commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage of the most important political and cultural issues of our day. Boston Magazine printed more than a dozen photos from the day Tsarnaev was captured, including images of police during the manhunt and Tsarnaev as he was captured and taken away by ambulance. Three images showed Tsarnaev as he emerged from the boat, head bowed, with red smudges and streaks on his clothing and the boat. Two images showed the red dot of the laser sight in the middle of his forehead and just above his left eye. The other showed the dot on the top of his head as he buries his face in his arms. In his statement, Murphy said the capture played out like a television show, but he hopes his photos show it was as real as it gets. Ofcer Sean Collier did give his life. These were real people, with real lives, with real families, he said. And to have this cover dropped into Boston was hurtful to their memories and their families. I know from rst-hand conversations that this Rolling Stone cover has kept many of them up again. Its irritated the wounds that will never heal again, he wrote. There is nothing glamorous in bringing more pain to a grieving family.

From page 1A The clerk at Leo Matus News Stand on Public Square said it will sell the issue, but the owner was not available for comment. First Amendment issue As a First Amendment advocate, Wilkes University communications professor Loran Lewis said newsstands should not make any changes. I do not think they should decide what people should and should not read, he said. Although the magazines photo choice is controversial, said Lewis, it is not out of the norm for Rolling Stone, which featured Charles Manson on its cover in 1970. It has a history of doing investigative stories, he said. It is and Rolling Stones longstanding commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage of the most important political and cultural issues of our day. Wilkes University gets a subscription to Rolling Stone, so Lewis received an early copy of it. While many people believe the cover glamorizes Tsarnaev, Lewis said the article features the story of how a teenager turned into the accused Boston bomber. Having a picture showing him as an average kid works in that regard, he said. Another viewpoint Mary Ann Angel Soroka, of Kingston, said she will buy the magazine for the article to read it and see what it is about, but does not believe the terror suspect should be on the cover.

BOSTON A police photographer, furious with a Rolling Stone cover photo he believes glamorizes the surviving Boston Marathon suspect, released gritty images Thursday from the day he was captured. Photos released to Boston Magazine by Massachusetts State Police tactical photographer Sgt. Sean Murphy show a downcast, disheveled Dzhokhar Tsarnaev with the red dot of a snipers rie laser sight boring into his forehead. The pictures were taken when Tsarnaev was captured April 19, bleeding and hiding in a dry-docked boat in a Watertown backyard. Murphy said in a statement to Boston Magazine that Tsarnaev is evil and that his photos show the real Boston bomber, not someone uffed and buffed for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. The April 15 bombing killed three people and injured more than 260. Massachusetts Institute of Technology ofcer Sean Collier was allegedly killed April 18 by Tsarnaev and his brother, Tamerlan, who died following a shootout with police later that evening. State police spokesman David Procopio said in a statement Thursday that the agency did not authorize the release of the photos to Boston Magazine and will not release them to other media. The State Police will have no further comment on this matter tonight, he added. Murphy, who did not return a message from The Associated Press, said in his statement to Boston Magazine that

From page 1A their properties with the aim of increasing their values and creating an incentive for people to build on the empty lots. Her group would pay for improvements in order for homeowners to receive up to $5,000 in matching funds from the city through the Gateway Facade Improvement Grant Program. Skate park proposal An additional component of Clearys proposal dealt with purchasing an abandoned building and converting the site to a skate park for youths. Councilman George Brown, who introduced the group to council, said hes received an awful lot of phone calls from neighbors about these (empty) properties. The city has had to dump loads of dirt on some of them to prevent access and keep out trespassers, he said. During questioning from council, Cleary acknowledged this was the groups rst attempt at an endeavor of this size and scope. Councilman Tony George expressed concerns about Clearys proposal and the fact that the group does not have nancing in place for the construction. Theres no taxes while theyre being built, he said. We lose taxes while you rent, too. He suggested the city would benet more if the group bought blighted properties, remodeled them and sold them rather than attempting to build new houses on the vacant lots. Cleary explained her group hasnt yet committed to a specic plan because it was not sure the city would agree to the proposal. The group can do a lease-purchase option, she said, that transfers the deed so taxes are paid upon the transfer of ownership. Theres different ways to do the agreement, and the idea is to get these properties back onto the tax rolls and to put money back into Wilkes-Barre, she said. Councilwoman Maureen Lavelle asked if the facade program dealt with the parcels the group wanted to buy from the city. Cleary told her the facade grants apply only to owneroccupied houses and In the Gap is providing the money to the homeowners who cant afford the renovations. She said that the group would like to help as many homeowners on that block of South River Street x up their properties as an incentive to sell the lots it wants to buy from the city.

N.Y.judge blocks Sept.11 claims against airlines

Associated Press

NEW YORK The owners of the World Trade Center cant demand billions of dollars more in insurance money for the destruction caused by the Sept. 11 attacks, a federal judge decided Thursday. Judge Alvin Hellerstein ruled after hearing testimony by economic experts for the trade center owners and for the airlines linked to the planes that were hijacked in the attacks. The non-jury trial was held to decide whether the owners could collect more than the nearly $5 billion theyve already received toward reconstruction. In ruling against developer

Larry Silverstein and World Trade Center Properties, the judge cited state laws that bar windfalls and double recovery on the same loss. The judge said that though he was ruling against the trade center owners, they deserved credit for spearheading the recovery effort at the 16-acre lower Manhattan site. You were dealt a very severe blow, the judge said of the attack, which turned the trade center into an inferno and destroyed the twin towers. Since then, the developers workers have labored to create beauty out the ashes of the destruction, he added. A spokesman for Silverstein Properties said the developer was deeply disappointed by the rul-

ing and would appeal but remains committed to the ongoing construction projects on the site. We will not rest until we have exhausted every option to assure that the aviation industrys insurers pay their fair share toward the complete rebuilding of the World Trade Center, said the spokesman, Bud Perrone. During the four-day proceeding, Silversteins attorneys had insisted that the aviation companies owed at least $3.5 billion for letting hijackers board planes that destroyed three skyscrapers on Sept. 11, 2001: the prominent twin towers and 7 World Trade Center, a 47-story building that caught re after debris from one of the jet crashes pierced its facade and collapsed hours later.

Attorney Roger Podesta, speaking for companies including United Airlines Inc., US Airways Inc., American Airlines Inc. and its parent company, AMR Corp., had argued that making aviation companies pay would amount to double compensation. He said an $8.5 billion total recovery would be more than two and a half times the fair value of the buildings that fell. But attorney Richard Williamson, representing World Trade Center Properties, said damages from the attacks had totaled at least $7.2 billion. The trade center owners say it has cost more than $7 billion to replace the twin towers and more than $1 billion to replace the third trade center building that fell.

A-Rod homer helps RailRiders silence Bats


MOOSIC The second rehab appearance in as many homestands for the RailRiders started in similar fashion as the previous. Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter left town a week ago after spending ve days in Northeast Pennsylvania and third baseman Alex Rodriguez arrived for Thursdays game at PNC Field. During Jeters tenure with Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre, the team won four games in a row. The current stretch of games at home with Rodriguez in the lineup started with an 8-0 win over

Louisville. Rodriguez, who played seven innings in the eld, was a big part of the teams scoring hitting a two-run home run and nearly missing another nishing the night 1 for 4. After ying out to deep right in his rst at-bat, Rodriguez planted a 1-2 fastball from Chad Reineke onto the lawn in right-center in the bottom of the third giving the RailRiders a 2-0 lead. That set the tone for the rest of the game for the RailRiders. Anytime I can get the ball in the air, especially to center and right center thats a good sign, said Rodriguez, who is nearing the end of his 20-day rehab and is scheduled to return to the

Yankees on Monday. The RailRiders also got a big performance from right-handed starter Michael Pineda, who nished his rehab stretch while Jeter was playing for the RailRiders and is now a full-time part of the team. He used a wicked slider to punch out a season-high eight all swinging and only allowed three hits and no runs. Throwing his slider in the dirt several times, he got Louisville batters to chase the pitch for strikeouts. Two times on the night he got a strikeout on a slider in the dirt and catcher J.R. Murphy had to throw to rst to complete the out. Three other times,

Murphy had to tag the batter out on a K in the dirt. Combine that pitch with a fastball that was topping out at 94 miles per hour and Pineda looked unhittable in the rst four innings. They were swinging at it every time I put it down so when thats the case you basically throw until they stop swinging at it, Murphy said about Pinedas slider. He had some really bad swings on that pitch. The problem Pineda ran into was that his pitch count got high and he had to leave before getting the last out in the fth inning for the second See RAILRIDeRS | 6B

Fans flock to PNC Field to see troubled Yankees star trying to make big league return


MOOSIC - Steroids scandals and past postseason failures gave way to unaldulterated adulation for Alex Rodriguez when he pulled on a Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders uniform. It seems fans who flocked to PNC Field to see him Thursday just wanted the troubled star back in a New York Yankees uniform. Im a Yankees fan, hes a Yankee, said Daniel Hoffman, who traveled from his home in Queens to watch A-Rod begin a Triple-A rehab stint with the RailRiders. He can help the team. It didnt take A-Rod long to show how. He slammed a two-run home run the opposite way during his second at-bat for the RailRiders in the third inning of the Triple-A teams 8-0 victory over Louisville, shortly after being robbed of extra bases when Louisville right fielder Josh Fellhauer made a terrific catch of his drive against the wall in the bottom of the first inning. That one felt good, Rodriguez said of his shot over the right field wall. The first one felt good as well. The homer was the only hit of the night for Rodriguez, whos coming back from offseason hip surgery. He wound up going 1-for-4 against Louisville pitching, and played seven innings at third base without handling a chance. Hes likely to spend this weekend playing for the RailRiders before the Yankees decide if hes ready to rejoin them Monday. Im excited, A-Rod said. (But) we cant get ahead of ourselves. Honestly, if I didnt get another hit it doesnt See RODRIguez | 4B

Johnson handles the brown links of Muirfield

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, playing for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders, hits a ball deep to right field in the first inning that was caught at the warning track during Thursdays game against and the Louisville Bats at PNC Field in Moosic.

Pete G. Wilcox | The Times Leader

guLLANe, SCOTLAND A blue sky and a gentle breeze usually means ripe scoring conditions at the British Open. Just not on the brown links of Muireld. zach Johnson handled it better than anyone Thursday. Helped along by a 45-foot eagle putt and only one bogey despite trouble lurking around every pot bunker, Johnson had a 5-under 66 for a one-shot lead, the rst time hes been atop the leaderboard at any major since he rallied to win the Masters six years ago. Tiger Woods more than survived the late end of the draw, after the sun had thoroughly baked out the crispy greens and allowed only eight of the 20 rounds under par. He knocked one putt clear off the green, but 10 one-putts most of them for pars carried him to a 69, a good start in his bid to end his ve-year drought in the majors. The golf course progressively got more dried out and more difcult as we played, Woods said. And Im very pleased to shoot anything even par or better. And for all the talk about Muirelds men-only membership, at least the club doesnt discriminate against age. Mark OMeara, the 56-year-old who won his claret jug in 1998 at Royal Birkdale, shot a 67 and nearly tied Johnson for the lead See gOLF | 6B

PEDs, Pirates and Puig headline second half in MLB

The American League won the AllStar game on Tuesday night, giving home-eld advantage in the World Series back to the junior circuit after three years of NL dominance. Now the race is on to get to the Fall Classic, and some underachieving preseason favorites are looking to make their moves. every playoff spot is legitimately up for grabs, with no team leading a division by more than a half-dozen games. And the NL east, where Atlanta is up six on Washington, is the only place where the division leader is ahead by three games or more. What to look for in the second half, that begins today: CLOCK IS TICKING The Washington Nationals need a healthy Bryce Harper to get into a groove and help them chase down Atlanta. The big-spending Dodgers are suddenly surging, 17-5 since June 22, thanks to the youthful exuberance of Yasiel Puig, with a smile to match that of owner Magic Johnson. North of the border, the Blue Jays made the biggest offseason moves but NL Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickeys knuckleball has been mostly off-target and Toronto nds itself in last place in the powerful AL east. But dont count anyone out in whats widely considered the toughest division in the majors. Pedro Alvarez and the Pittsburgh Pirates appear poised to put 20 years of misery behind them, after two years of teasing their fans by being in the hunt heading into the break only to fade down the stretch. With the Houston See SeCOND HALF | 6B


AP Sports Writer

Much of the focus as baseball heads into the second half is on the possible suspensions of Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun and a handful of All-Stars implicated in the Biogenesis performance enhancing drug scandal. Puigmania, a Pirates revival and one impressive power show in Baltimore may shift the gaze back onto the eld, where there will be a lot to watch headed down the stretch of the regular season. Fans who have been celebrating Mariano Rivera at every stop of his farewell tour should get a chance to watch returning stars Derek Jeter, Chris Carpenter, A-Rod and even Manny Ramirez after a rst half dominated by 20-somethings.

The Los Angeles Dodgers Yasiel Puigs play was one of the highlights of the first half of season.

Aimee Dilger /The Times Leader

Maria Trivelpiece Hazleton Area INF Sophomore Two-time All-WVC. Paced the team with a .600 batting average. Tied for team lead with 18 stolen bases. Had 15 RBI, two triples and four doubles.

Demko proved to be a quick learner

WVC play. All those statistics improved except for her ERA, which was 0.51 as a junior. Now consider unlike many softball pitchers, Demko didnt start working at her craft until she was 12 years old. Until then, Demko played baseball, which was a challenge in itself playing as a girl against boys. When she switched to softball at 12, she wanted to be a pitcher. Her dad found a pitching coach and the road to success began. I did Little League Baseball and I had to transfer over to softball, Demko said. My dad was like Do you want to be a pitcher in softball? I was like Sure why not? Baseball presented a challenge, but softball did as well. It was a big transition, Demko said. Its not like playing with the boys. Softball was a little harder because the ball is bigger. Just adjusting your bat to it. Demko was a rst baseman and right elder in baseball. Once inside the pitching circle in softball, she rarely left. Pitching can carry a team far in softball. But the position requires more than just skill. Its a nerve-wracking job, especially when the other team starts its dugout

In the world of softball, Becky Demko was late to the circle. But she was also an incredibly quick learner. So quick that Demko established herself as a premier pitcher in the Wyoming Valley Conference throughout her career, which ended in the Hazleton Area star being named The Times Leader Player of the Year. Demkos number were quite impressive in earning Times Leader All-WVC rst-team honors once again. She posted an 11-1 record with 99 strikeouts, 23 walks and a 0.80 ERA in 88 innings pitched in

chants. The mental aspect is just as important at times as physical ability. You just kind of block all that out, Demko said, so it doesnt go to your head like the cheering or the cheering of the other team or fans. You just kind of focus on the game and not think about anything. You have to play with a clear head. Demko will continue pitching in college at Penn State Berks. She leaves Hazleton Area with more than just amazing numbers. Yeah, you play to win, Demko said. But after everything, you remember all the good memories with everyone. All the jokes, all the team fun.

Kaya Swanek Holy Redeemer P Sophomore Posted a 9-0 record with a 0.66 ERA, 62 strikeouts and just six walks in 52.2 innings. Added power at the plate with four homers, two triples and two doubles.

Saban waves off Bear comparisons,three-peat talk

John Zenor
AP Sports Writer

HOOVER, Ala. Nick Saban is as hard to distract as he is to beat. Ask the Alabama coach what winning a third straight national title would mean, and he wonders why hed waste brain juice thinking about it. Compare him to Bear Bryant, and he swiftly dismisses such talk though it isnt sounding so farfetched these days. The Crimson Tides ultra-focused coach didnt let 1,000-plus reporters at Southeastern Conference media days change his process-oriented approach. Three straight titles sure would be huge, huh? I dont think about it in

that regard. I never, ever do, Saban responded before his podium address. I think the most important thing for me to do is to get our staff, the people in our organization, our players to be as good as this team can be. Can we get them to make a commitment to a standard that is going to let them play at a high level on a consistent basis that they are capable of? And if we do that maybe well give ourselves a chance, and I think thats the goal. Thats what I think about. Thats what we focus on. Thats what we try to get accomplished with the players. Saban has won two straight championships and three of the last four after

claiming another one at LSU. Can observers fairly say hes reaching Bear-ied air? I dont think I have any reason that anybody should do that. I think Bear Bryant is probably the greatest coach in college football in terms of what he accomplished, what his legacy is, said Saban, citing not only the titles but how Bryant inuenced his players lives. Theres no way that we have done anything close to what hes done in terms of his consistency over time, how he changed what he did to impact the times. They threw the ball and won. They ran the wishbone and won. He changed tremendously to do what he needed to do to be success-

ful. The Tide has been mostly driving the Rolls Royce of football conferences since Saban got the program rolling. The SEC has won the last seven national titles. Even losses to top contenders Texas A&M last year and LSU two years ago have been mere speed bumps to an Alabama program with the sturdiest of shock absorbers. Bama barely pulled out wins over both LSU and then Georgia in the SEC title game last season. Once again as the Tigers Les Miles points out the Tide doesnt have to play East powers Georgia, Florida or South Carolina in the regular season. LSU, meanwhile, faces

Georgia and Florida. There can never be an equal path to the championship, said Saban, the lone

coach who voted for a ninegame league schedule in the spring. Unless everybody plays everybody, thats

the only equal path to the championship. Everybody doesnt play everybody in the NFL.

Finally,France tastes victory

LALPE DHUEZ, France After ve grueling hours of riding, as he strained and sweated to victory in an eye-popping Tour de France stage with crowds that turned cyclings most famous climb into a huge and raucous high-mountain party, Christophe Riblon didnt want it to stop. Winning a Tour stage is always special. Becoming the rst French stage winner at the 100th Tour was doubly special. Doing all this in front of hundreds of thousands of screaming fans, several rows deep up 21 steep hairpin bends in the Alps, well, Riblon wanted the pleasure to last and last. It was as if the crowds were carrying me. Magical, Riblon said. The last kilometer (half-mile) wasnt long enough. I so would have liked to have proted more from that moment with the crowds. It was incredible. I would have liked for it to go on for 10 kilometers (six miles) like that. In a Tour that has offered a kaleidoscope of racing drama and scenic beauty from its June 29 start point on the French island of Corsica, this Stage 18 was the one that most set hearts racing and tongues wagging when organizers unveiled the race route last October. When their bodies and minds are already sapped by more than two weeks of racing, it sent the riders not once but twice up the legendary climb to the ski station of LAlpe dHuez. Between the two ascents, the route hared down a sinewy, narrow and risky descent with no safety barriers that some riders, including Tour champion-in-themaking Chris Froome, felt was dangerous. The gamble could have backred horribly had a rider plunged off a missed bend. But feared storms didnt materialize, so the roads didnt become overly treacherous. The racing proved engrossing. Watching the riders high-wire act on the Col de Sarenne descent, especially a heart-in-mouth moment when Froomes rival Alberto Contador zipped past him as they sped downhill, was an adrenaline high. The double ascent to LAlpe dHuez made the roadside hordes doubly frenzied. It was as though someone had scooped up an entire outdoor music festival with hundreds of thousands of people, tents, barbecues, colors, smells, noise, outdoor toilets and all and scattered them across the mountain. The riders cleaved through curtains of people screaming and running alongside them. A man waving a Japanese ag inadvertently caught it on the handlebar of Froomes teammate Richie Porte, giving him a fright. And the French got a perfect crescendo when Riblon spared them the indignity of a Tour without a stage win. The last time that happened was 1999. With just three stages left after Thursday to the nish in Paris, French chances were fast running out. A Frenchman winning on LAlpe dHuez is a beautiful recompense for France and for the Tour de France. We, the French, France, our team, didnt deserve to come out of this Tour de France without a stage victory, said Riblon. Riding to the line, he shed a dog tag engraved with the names of his wife and two daughters out of his jersey and kissed it. Although not from the same country or team, Riblon used the limelight of victory as a soapbox to defend Froome against suspicions voiced in some quarters about the British riders performances. Froomes clear physical superiority has raised eyebrows. Because cycling was so let down by Lance Armstrong and his generation of dopers, some observers are nding it hard to believe that Froome could be riding clean even though the sports anti-doping tests are more credible now than when Armstrong was win-

ning and cheating. Among the many banners that spectators hung on the switchbacks to LAlpe dHuez was one that read: Froome dope I believe in cycling and I dont think there are many cheats left, Riblon said. What I want most of all is to eradicate suspicion. Honestly, I dont really understand why the yellow jersey (Froome) is being put on trial He doesnt deserve this. When harm is done to the yellow jersey, the whole of cycling is hurt. To combat suspicion, Froomes team released his performance data from six races, including this Tour, to French sports newspaper LEquipe. The newspaper reported Thursday that it had an outside expert analyze the data including how much power Froome generated and his climbing times on 18 ascents and that he found no anoma-

lies. LEquipe, owned by Tour organizers ASO, said Sky also told the newspaper that Froome has had 48 anti-doping tests this year, including 19 so far at the Tour before Thursday stage. The team owns all that data and the team made the decision to release that data, said Froome. But, yeah, Im really happy to hear their ndings and to hear their take on it and, basically, backing us up to say that these performances are very good, strong, clean sporting performances. I know what Im doing is right and Im extremely proud of what Ive done to get here. So no one can take that away from me, he said. Having barely put a foot wrong for more than two weeks, Froome ran short of energy on the second ascent to LAlpe dHuez, slowing suddenly as he sought assistance from his team.

Its a horrible feeling, Froome said of the sugarlow. Porte dropped back to their team car to fetch an energy bar, rode back and handed it over to Froome. That cost both of them a 20-second time penalty because food supplies werent allowed that late in the stage. Still, Froome has plenty of time to spare, even more now than he started the day with. After his aggressive downhill from Sarenne, Contador labored on the last uphill. He nished 11th. Froome was seventh. His overall lead grew to 5 minutes, 11 seconds over Contador. Colombian Nairo Quintana moved up to third overall, 5:32 behind Froome, who is now just three days away from becoming the second successive British winner after 2012 champion Bradley Wiggins.

NEW YORK Paul Pierce stared straight ahead, an occasional smile or laugh interrupting the otherwise distant look on his face. Now a Net, its clear hes still getting over not being a Celtic. Its tough when youve been in a situation like me for 15 years, Pierce said. But hes getting used to it, and he and Kevin Garnett are ready to make the most of their new surroundings. Traded from Boston to Brooklyn, the duo was introduced along with Jason Terry on Thursday at a news conference at Barclays Center, their new home. Pierce said it was difcult to leave the city where hed spent his entire career. He appeared dazed at times while listening to questions and answers, even having to ask for one to be repeated while trying to ght his way out of a fog. You saw the trade and its like, OK, theres a trade. But for me to actually be here now, looking for a place to live, being in this arena, trying to get to know my way around the city, its really starting to sink in now that its become real, Pierce said. Im no longer a Boston Celtic, Im a Brooklyn Net and thats what it is right now, he continued. Its a business. At some point we all have to move on and Im here to try to create some kind of legacy here in Brooklyn. The crowd applauded, appearing more excited about having Pierce in Brooklyn than he was about being here. Thats understandable given his history in Boston, where he is the Celtics No. 2 career scorer and was the NBA Finals MVP when they won the last of their NBA-high 17 championships. Hell yeah, hes been with Boston his whole life, Garnett said. Youve been in a system, been in a city, especially its the Celtics. Yeah, its very difcult.

But Pierce realized it would be coming, saying he thought the writing was on the wall in June when the Celtics negotiated a deal with the Los Angeles Clippers to let coach Doc Rivers out of his contract in Boston. Its sinking in and Im liking what I feel right now, Pierce said, adding he got a jolt when he saw his new white-and-black uniform in the locker room. The Celtics and Nets agreed to the blockbuster trade on draft night and it became ofcial last week. Garnett waved a no-trade clause to accept the deal after some urging from Pierce during a lengthy phone call and while saying it was unfortunate they had to move on, he seemed to have a little easier time embracing it, greeting the audience with Whats up, Brooklyn! before his rst remarks. I dont know anyone that loves change, but change has to happen for things to (get) better, he said. The three newcomers were joined on the podium by general manager Billy King and rst-year coach Jason Kidd, who at 40 is a longtime rival, a former teammate of Terrys and just a few years older than his new players. And they got a visit at the end from Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov, who made a late decision to attend the news conference and meet the players whose salaries helped the teams payroll soar so high that the club will pay about $80 million in luxury tax next season. I think theyre still counting money in the back ofce, but frankly speaking, I just hope the check doesnt bounce, Prokhorov joked. The Russian billionaire has said his goal was to win a championship within ve years of buying the team in 2010. Including the signing of Andrei Kirilenko this summer, Brooklyn has now gotten into position to contend. For me, its not the way to wait 10, 15 years for results, Prokhorov said.

MINNEAPOLIS Andre Hollins saw Mo Walker this spring before leaving for Italy on a study abroad program, and Minnesotas standout point guard noticed a change in his big teammates physique. Walker had lost about 15 pounds. One month later, upon Hollins return to campus in mid-June, the junior-tobe could hardly believe his eyes. The 6-foot-10 Walker has shed about 45 pounds. I said, What have you been doing? Hollins said, smiling wide. Thats just a testament to the hard work hes been doing.

The incredible shrinking Walker is also a clear sign of the inuence of new coach Richard Pitino. The Gophers dont start the season for four more months, but the 30-yearold son of the Hall of Fame coach has not held back in trying to mold the program to his preference and style. Pitinos fast-paced offense makes lumbering big men all but obsolete, so Walker knew he had to get in shape or be stuck at the end of the bench. It was more of a wakeup call to me. I knew I was overweight and stuff, but I kind of just lived with it and played with it comfortably, the junior from Toronto said. But ever since Ive

been changing my body, its been a big benet to me. Said Pitino before a practice this week: I dont think Mo Walker could have played in any system at that weight. pitino Wa l ke r said hes at 265 pounds and wants to drop 15 more. Pitino said hes more focused on Walkers bodyfat percentage, encouraging him to turn as much ab into muscle as he can. I feel a lot better going up and down the court, Walker said. My wind is a little bit better. Im de-

nitely a little better. I feel like that just affects my overall game, rebounding and just overall defense, all the things that coach really stresses on. Walker tore the posterior cruciate ligament and meniscus cartilage in his right knee just 12 games into his freshman year and missed the rest of that season. He took a redshirt the next year while trying, unsuccessfully, to recover from the injury and return to playing shape. Last season, coach Tubby Smith and his staff saw potential for Walker with some initial weight loss, but his conditioning still lagged and he averaged only 6.6 minutes per game.

With fellow junior Elliott Eliason the only other returning post player with any experience, theres plenty of room for Walker to grow into a role and thrive. Cutting out carbohydrates, particularly the sugars in soda and juice, was the biggest step for Walker. The key, of course, is maintaining the discipline all season to stick with it. The rst few weeks people were telling me I looked pretty good, and I didnt really see it, but I think maybe like the fourth or fth week I started seeing the results and, yeah, I started looking at myself a little more in the mirror, Walker said with a sly smile.

CINCINNATI Four years after the Cincinnati Bengals were featured on HBOs Hard Knocks show, coach Marvin Lewis still hears about his profane tirade to his team after a poor preseason game. The Bengals are ready to get the NFL talking about them again. NFL Films crews started shooting video on Thursday for the rst episode of the show, which follows a team through training camp. The Bengals are the second team to be featured twice during the shows eight seasons the Dallas Cowboys also made a second appearance. Cincinnati had quarterback Carson Palmer and receiver Chad Johnson then going by the last name of Ochocinco when it was on the 2009 show. Hard Knocks won two Emmy Awards that year for editing and production. Ross Ketover, an executive producer for the show, presented Lewis with one of the shows Emmys on Thursday. Its not really the trophy that were actually striving for, Lewis said, laughing, but weve got some accomplishments to do along the way. But thats awesome. Many teams refuse to do Hard Knocks because it shows interactions between players, coaches and frontofce managers in otherwise private

moments. The Bengals had a few such moments during the 2009 show. One of the lasting lines was delivered by Lewis in the locker room after a preseason loss. Unhappy with a ragged performance, Lewis berated his team as the cameras rolled and screamed at the players to reach down inside and be a (profanity) pro. Lewis regretted that the moment was shown on television. He said on Thursday that he still gets comments about it. I got one yesterday, he said. If you took the time to think about it, its probably something you would have done in the connes of your own group, but thats something that just happens in the moment. couple of things, Lewis said. No. 1, from the standpoint of our fans, the comments people have made to me talking about what a great opportunity it was for them to get to know the Cincinnati Bengals players when we did it a few years ago in 2009. And from the standpoint of me as the coach: We have to go win football games, regardless of who is watching. The Bengals havent won a playoff game since the 1990 season, a streak of futility that ties for seventh-longest in league history. The Bengals are 0-4 in the playoffs under Lewis, losing in the opening round at Houston each of the last two seasons. Theyre trying to reach the playoffs for a third straight season, which would be a rst for the franchise. Its a much different team from 2009. The ashy Johnson got a lot of the

attention in training camp that year, and not always in a positive way. Palmer and an assistant coach were caught saying that the receiver didnt try hard every play in camp. Last year, Hard Knocks featured the Miami Dolphins, who released Johnson during training camp after his arrest in a domestic battery case.

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis holds an Emmy award after it was presented to him by Ross Ketover, senior coordinating producer for NFL films and also an executive producer for this years HBO production of Hard Knocks, Thursday, during a news conference, in Cincinnati. HBO won the Emmy the last time they featured the Bengals, and hopes to repeat their success with the Bengals named as the featured team for the 2013 season of Hard Knocks.

From page 1B really matter. All Im thinking about it hitting the ball hard. Anytime I get the ball in the air, its a good sign. I just feel so fortunate after such a big surgery to be back on the eld. Fans at PNC Field were equally as enthusiastic about getting a chance to see him work his way back to New York. Hes a good player, said Jim Eshelman, a RailRiders season ticket holder from Glen Ridge. I respect him for being a good player. The really bad stuff surrounding A-Rod? Well, that kind of got lost in Thursdays excitement. A smattering of boos greeted each of the plate appearances A-Rod made for the RailRiders, but that discontent was quickly drowned out by a stadium full of applause. Im really happy that hes here, said Yankees fan Ned Jones of Avoca. I think its great for the stadium, great for the area. Some fans at the park went to great lengths to keep controversty surrounding A-Rod out of the conversation. Some said they hoped hed recover from three straight sub-par postseasons, where he batted just .219 in 2010, .111 in 2011 and .120 with no RBI and 12 strikeouts in 25 at-bats last October - when A-Rod was embarrassed by a Possibly less than A-Rod thinks. Hes been linked to the Florida anti-aging Biogenesis clinic and its distribution of performance-enhancing drugs, and met with Major League Baseball investigators about the matter last week. Long suspensions - possibly as long as 100 games - have been rumored for players found guilty of using banned suplements provided by the clinic - a matter which A-Rod atly declined to discuss during a pregame press conference. Some people in the stands talked about it almost hesitantly. It does bother me, Hoffman said. But its like that for a lot of players. Hes just one of the many. Theres no proof, Eshelman said. Hes not convicted of anything I know of. I mean, Marchesano said, who am I to judge? Judging by the reaction of most of the 8,256 fans at PNC Field, A-Rods past sins and failures are forgiven, for now. I just think hes a great player, Jones said. I just hope he stays here a couple of days. As for the great steroids controversy surrounding A-Rod? Thats up to a higher power than me, Jones said.

benching in the American League Championship Series against Detroit. I think hes a good player, I think him and (Derek) Jeter play well together, so I say Why

not? said Brooklyn native and current Pittston resident Florence Marchesano. Hell be 38 next week, how much time does he have (left), anyway?

From page 1B his 25-foot birdie putt on the 18th took a hard spin out of the cup. Another former champion, 54-year-old Tom Lehman, opened with a 68. It was an eclectic group who broke par, from major champions to players making their British Open debut. What they all had in common was nding a way to get through a rm, fast and frightening test at Muireld that gures to get even harder if the Royal & Ancient doesnt put some water on the links course. Phil Mickelson opened with a 69 and felt like he got off easy by playing in the morning. Mickelson was concerned about some hole locations being too close to the edge of slopes, and he pleaded with the R&A to let go of its ego and just set the course up the way the best players can win. Some of the best did just ne. Anytime you shoot under par in an Open or a major, for that matter you have to be putting at least somewhat decent, Johnson said. And I putted great. I made some nice birdie putts and obviously that one for eagle. But I struck some really nice, solid par putts. Thats what youve got to do to stay in it. Rafael Cabrera-Bello of Spain joined OMeara at 67, while the group at 68 included Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker, who each have contended on Sunday over the last two years in the Open. Two-time major champion Angel Cabrera, who lost in a playoff at the Masters in April, and 19-year-old Jordan Spieth were in the group at 69. It was a beautiful day along the Firth of Forth. And it was hard work. No one felt safe until the ball stopped bouncing along the crusty fairways, and no one was sure when that would happen. I havent seen anything like this, said Snedeker, who tied the 36-hole Open record a year ago at Lytham. Ive played in, I think, ve Opens. This is completely new to me foreign to see a 2-iron going 300 yards. You have got to be wary of how youre shaping your golf ball, and what shot selections youre using on the greens. OMeara thought he hit a reasonable bunker shot on the 15th until it kept rolling and rolling off the green and into another bunker. They get so glassy and crispy around the holes, Graeme McDowell, who played with Woods, said after a 75. You literally can see 300 footprints around the hole from all the players and caddies that have been out there today. They just get really shiny, and really glassy. I couldnt single out a pin that I thought was unfair. But if you got on the wrong side of them, they could make you look very, very silly. Yes, there was plenty of that. Rory McIlroy never looked comfortable, and it caught up with him. After missing left of the 12th green, he chipped it up the slope and watched it roll back down to his feet. His next chip was long and he wound up with double bogey. On the 15th hole, his putt to the back pin rolled well past the hole and into a bunker for another double bogey. A bogey-bogey nish gave him a 79, his highest score at the Open since that 80 in the vicious wind of St. Andrews in 2010. At least he had some company. Luke Donald, another former No. 1 player in the world, had a double bogey

Rail Riders
From page 1B straight start. In the fth, Denis Phipps led off with a double and Pineda then got the next two batters before issuing his rst walk of the game to Louisvilles No. 9 hitter Jason Donald to end his night. Pineda nearly got a called third strike on Donald earlier in the at-bat but it wasnt called. Pineda threw 82 pitches with 56 of them for strikes. I dont have control for the situation but they are controlling my pitches and said just 80 pitches on the mound right now is good, said Pineda, who lasted ve innings in his rst start for the RailRiders, but hasnt gone past the ve-inning mark since a June 25 rehab start for Double-A Trenton. Dan Johnson blasted a solo home run in the bottom of the fth, No. 15 of the season, that landed on the sidewalk behind the grass in right eld to extend the RailRider lead to 4-0. SWB wasnt done scoring after that as it put up four more in the bottom of the eighth highlighted by a three-run homer from Brent Lillibridge. It was Lillibridges seventh since joining the club on June 22.

Second Half
From page 1B Astros now in the AL, the NL Central is one of the most competitive divisions. Reds manager Dusty Baker knew it would be a stiffer challenge this year. I gured itd be close, closer, because none of us have the Astros in our division that we were counting on not to malign them but they were in our division last year and every team kind of counted on beating them, he said. Now youve got to beat each other. So far its only been California dreamin for Josh Hamilton in his rst year in Los Angeles, even with Houston in the division. Hell have to improve on his .224 average, .413 slugging percentage for the Angels to have a shot to overtake Home Run Derby champ Yoenis Cespedes and the pesky As. Albert Pujols ballclub is 11 games back in the AL West and nine games behind for the wild card. HOMER CRUSH Baltimores big bopper Chris Davis is off on a race of his own. With 37 homers before the break tying Reggie Jackson (1969) for best ever in the AL talk of the single-season home run record is bubbling again. Crush Davis, however, doesnt have his sights set on Barry Bonds 73 homers, he wants to top Roger Maris 61, the number he thinks is the legitimate, untainted mark. After everything came out, I assumed 61 was the record, Davis said. I think its what a lot of fans would agree on. Davis, whose previous career high for homers was last years 33, needs 25 long balls in 66 games to reach 62. Of course, most of the rest of baseball goes with Bonds number, including Davis teammate Adam Jones. He still hit them over the fence, Jones said. A HALF FOR THE AGED Move over whippersnappers, the old guard is back maybe. Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, Matt Harvey, Patrick Corbin and a record 39 rst-time AllStars grabbed the spotlight in the rst half but expect to see some seasoned stars in the next few weeks that could impact the pennant races. The injury-ravaged Yankees have hung around in the potent AL East with a Whos on First? lineup. Now they should get Derek Jeter back after a one-game false start and Alex Rodriguezs return from offseason hip surgery is imminent. The St. Louis Cardinals have surged to baseballs best record in part behind the pitching of some pretty good rookies. Imagine how much better theyll be if 2005 NL Cy Young Award winner Chris Carpenter is fully recovered from a nerve injury and bad back. Talking about back, how about Manny Ramirez all the way from Taiwan? The twice suspended slugger is hitting .300 with three homers in eight games for Texas top minor league club, Triple-A Round Rock, and the Rangers are in need of a big righty bat. Could it be the dreadlocked Ramirez? WHEELIN AND DEALIN After pushing their payroll over $200 million this offseason, dont expect the Dodgers to sit quietly as the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline approaches. They got an early start acquiring Ricky Nolasco from the Marlins to bolster the rotation and could make further moves. The resurgent Red Sox might be on the lookout for another reliever after picking up left-hander Matt Thornton when lefty Andrew Miller was lost for the season with an injury. Teams hoping to ll a spot in the rotation can call Cubs executive Theo Epstein. Matt Garza is up for grabs and hes one of the most prominent names fans will hear a lot of in the next two weeks. The agging Phillies could look to move inelder Michael Young. The pitching-rich Giants might try to trade Tim Lincecum after he threw a no-hitter just before the break. If A-Rod is unable to play because of his hip, expect the Yankees to look for a corner inelder. Pitchers Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain could be the bait.

Riders help lift IL to All-Star win

THe TimeS LeADeR STAff RENO, NEv. Indianapolis Indians catcher Tony Sanchezs second-inning three-run blast powered the visiting International League to a 4-3 victory over the Pacic Coast League on Wednesday at the Triple-A All-Star game. The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders were key to the ILs victory, from manager Dave Miley through players Thomas Neal and Chris Bootcheck. Neal started and played a solid right eld. He walked in his two plate appearances. He reached base with one out in the second inning and stole second base while Louisvilles Billy Hamilton batted. He was stranded there. His walk in the fourth inning came with two outs and Neal was stranded at rst base. Bootcheck pitched scoreless fth and sixth innings for the IL, allowing one hit and one strikeout. The rst batter he faced, Renos Chris Owings, lined out to Neal in right eld. Bootcheck closed the fth with a pair of groundouts. In the sixth inning, Fresnos Roger Kieschnick snuck a single in bewteen a y out, ground out and strike out. IL starter Greg Reynolds of Louisville picked up the win, PCL starter Jarred Cosart took the loss. Columbus Preston Guilmet notched the save by recording the games nal out. Sanchez was named Top Star for the IL, while the PCLs Top Star honor went to Memphis reliever Michael Wacha, whose dominant appearance was representative of the entire bullpens All-Star performance.

She hasnt nished higher than a tie for 17th at Kingsmill. Her career best is a tie for eighth a year ago at the Kraft Nabisco. Ive been hitting it probably the best Ive hit it in a long time this year, said the 28-year-old University of Arizona grad from Westford, Mass. Ive been giving myself a lot of opportunities, and its frustrating that I havent been able to really go deep and make some putts. Everybody in the 144-player eld was tormented by temperatures in the 90s, high humidity, little wind and a glaring sun. Teenager Lexi Thompson, who was tied with Canadas Jessica Shepley and Creamer at 66, said after her round that she drank a bottle of water per hole to stay hydrated.

Walshe beneted from a morning tee time, but it wasnt as if it was cool then, either. At 7 in the morning I was sweating and Im sweating now, she said just after completing her round around 1 p.m. Creamer, who opened with a career-low 60 in her 2008 victory at the course, was satised to be a shot off the pace. Im very pleased. I had a lot of shots out there that I could have gone lower with, she said. But at the same time, it was a good start. I havent been able to start off the way I wanted the last couple of events, so this was nice to post a good number. Shepley, a former University of Tennessee player, has struggled this year but is encouraged.

Ive had a couple of good results. I played a couple smaller events up in Canada, she said. Ive been working hard on my swing a lot. Im trying to stay patient, so was hoping one of these rounds would come soon. Thompson, who was the youngest winner ever of an LPGA event when she took the 2011 Navistar at the age of 16, was asked if American players had been eclipsed by the South Koreans who have dominated in recent years. There are a lot of good American golfers out here. There is so much competition, she said. It doesnt matter where youre from; it matters how well you bring it out on the golf course. No one questions how well

Park has played. Shell go for an unprecedented fourth consecutive womens major in the same year when she heads for the Womens British Open late this month. Shes already won six times on the tour this year while ascending to No. 1. Naturally, galleries expect her to win every time out. I do feel more pressure coming into this tournament, she said after a 67 that left her tied with Haeji Kang, Jacqui Concolino, Gerina Piller and Karine Icher. But I try to enjoy it. I enjoy the fans coming out to watch. Defending champ So Yeon Ryu had a 68 along with a large group that included Morgan Pressel and Natalie Gulbis. Se Ri Pak, a ve-time winner.

Long day and a good score for Woods at British Open

AP Sports Writer

GULLANE, SCOTLAND By the time Tiger Woods nally made his way up to the 18th green, the bleachers were half empty and long shadows crept across the fairway. If Woods needed to be reminded how long this day was, the clock on the giant yellow scoreboard read 7:37 p.m. more than ve hours after he teed off. The major championships are usually grinds, but for anyone playing in the afternoon Thursday the rst round of the British Open proved more of a test than ever. The wind was blowing harder than expected, the golf course was drying up by the minute, and anything around par was a score to be respected. And there was Woods, feeling awfully good about a 2-under 69 that had to give him hope his ve-year drought in the major championships might come to an end this week on a golf course playing like it is in the middle of a drought. It was tough, Woods said. The golf course progressively got more dried out and more difcult as we played. Im very pleased to shoot any-

thing even par or better. A day that began with a near catastrophe off the rst tee ended with a sixfooter that found the center of the cup on the 18th green. Hardly surprising since Woods had 10 one-putts as he scrambled his way around the links course for one of the better scores of the afternoon. He was three shots off the lead set by Zach Johnson, who was part of a morning surge of players who took advantage of easier conditions to set the pace. More importantly, perhaps, Woods has a morning tee time of his own today on a course that at least for the rst day was set up to favor the early players. The guys that played early had a huge, huge break, Phil Mickelson said after shooting a 69 himself in the morning. Because even without any wind, its beyond difcult. That Woods managed to break 70 in the afternoon was impressive enough. That he did it after nearly snap hooking a 3-wood out of bounds on his opening tee shot and having to take an unplayable when the ball nestled in a deep clump of unruly grass was doubly so. When I got over that tee shot I was

(thinking), if I hammer it, this 3-wood is in that bunker, Woods said. So maybe I should take something off it. Maybe I should hit 5-wood. Hence I hit a ip hook left and there she goes. Woods somehow managed to make a bogey ve on the rst hole even with a penalty shot by hitting his third into a greenside bunker and getting up-anddown. It set the pattern for a day of one-putts that not only prevented the round from getting away from him, but put him in prime position going into the second round. Were supposed to get a different wind tomorrow, Woods said. It will be interesting to see what the course setup is. Just how tough was Muireld in the afternoon? So tough that the threesome Woods was playing in became a twosome when former champion Louis Oosthuizen withdrew on the ninth hole with an apparent injury after going 4-over-par through eight holes. So tough that his other playing partner, Graeme McDowell made two double bogeys and shot a 75 despite feeling he played well. So tough that Woods was 1-over at the turn before one-putting

the next four holes to spark a 3-under 32 on the back nine. Tiger played phenomenally well for his 2-under par, McDowell said. Really ground it out well, did what he did best. Playing well early in majors hasnt been the issue for

Woods in recent times, though. Closing it out on the weekend has been, the main reason why hes still stuck at 14 major championships and hasnt won one since beating Rocco Mediate on one leg in the 2008 U.S. Open.

Fewer Americans seek jobless aid

The number of Americans applying for unemployment benets fell 24,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 334,000, a sign that steady job gains should continue. The drop left unemployment benet applications at the lowest level in 10 weeks, the Labor Department said Thursday. Some of the decline might have been caused by seasonal factors. Still, the broader trend has been favorable. The four-week average, which smooths out uctuations, fell 5,250 to 351,000.

Dell delays vote on buyout, sign it lacks support

ROUND ROCK, TExAS Dell delayed Thursdays vote on founder Michael Dells plan to take the slumping computer maker private in a sign the board needs more time to rally support. Dell called a special shareholders meeting to order, then quickly adjourned it without a formal vote of the $24.4 billion buyout offer from Michael Dell and a group led by investment rm Silver Lake. It was rescheduled for Wednesday at the companys headquarters in Round Rock, Texas. The postponement is a signicant setback for Michael Dell and the companys board, which has spent the past ve months trying to persuade shareholders to approve the buyout proposal. Supporters believe Dell Inc. stands a better chance of turning around if it can make long-term strategic decisions without worrying about meeting Wall Streets quarter-to-quarter expectations. The mounting opposition to the deal is likely to increase the pressure on Michael Dell and Silver Lake to sweeten their offer. Dells stock rose 32 cents, or 2.5 percent, to $13.20 in morning trading after the delay was announced. Its unclear whether Silver Lake and other lenders nancing the bid will be willing to raise the stakes, given a deepening slump in the PC market that has been causing Dells earnings to crumble. PC sales have been falling as people delay replacing traditional computers and spend their money instead on the latest smartphones and tablets. Tablets are expected to outsell laptops this year. Michael Dell, who is Dells CEO, is hoping to evolve the company into a more diversied seller of technology services, business software and highend computers much the way IBM Corp. had successfully transformed itself in the 1990s. The delay is a vindication for two major Dell shareholders, Carl Icahn and his Southeastern Asset Management fund. They own a combined 13 percent of Dell and have been leading the mutiny against the proposed deal.

Job seekers flock to area grocer

The $10-an-hour jobs drew hundreds of applicants to the markets Kingston location on Pierce Street. The jobs needing to be lled are in Kingston, Pittston and Scranton. While the positions were advertised as cashiers openings, Maria Ferrese, Aldis district manager, noted she was looking for people who are willing to perform a variety of tasks. She said that none of their employees were above doing any job for the overall benet of the store. The goal was to nd employees who would develop a sense of loyalty to Aldis.

Benchmark crude for August delivery rose $1.56 to nish at $108.04 a barrel, the highest close since March 19, 2012.

U.K. air accident investigators recommended Thursday that aviation authorities temporarily disable a Honeywell emergency transmitter on all Boeing 787 Dreamliners following a re last week at Londons Heathrow Airport. The Air Accidents Investigation Branch also recommended that the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and other regulators carry out a safety review of lithiumbattery powered emergency locator transmitter systems in other types of aircraft. In a report issued Thursday, the investigators said that the greatest damage to the parked Ethiopian Airlines Dreamliner occurred around the aircrafts Rescu406AFN emergency locator transmitter near the planes tail.

We are a very small staff and we usually hold on to people for a long time, Ferrese said, noting the three local stores employ less than 30 people in total. Prior to the fairs start, at 3 p.m., scores

of people already were waiting in line for a chance to prove themselves worthy of the part- and full-time positions. Some of the applicants were unemployed, while others had part-time work but

said they needed the stability of a consistent paycheck. Senior citizen Cynthia Rackley, of Mountain Top, said many of the available jobs in this area are either minimum-wage

or part-time, which she feels isnt enough to support herself. She voiced a desire to work because she wants to avoid drawing Social Security from the government. Another applicant,

Tom Tippens, 32, of Wilkes-Barre, has a part-time job but has been looking for a full-time job since February, despite having a degree from Edinboro University.

IRS may also have targeted liberals, documents show

STEPHEN OHLEMACHER WASHINGTON The investigator who wrote a scathing report about the Internal Revenue Service targeting tea party groups says he is disturbed the agency withheld newly released documents showing liberal groups also might have been singled out for additional scrutiny. In prepared testimony, J. Russell George told a congressional panel Thursday the IRS did not provide the documents to his ofce during a yearlong audit. George said he just received the docDOW 15,548.54

uments last week. George issued a report in May that said IRS agents in a Cincinnati ofce improperly singled out groups with tea party and other conservative labels for additional scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status during the 2010 and 2012 elections. Georges report blamed ineffective management for allowing the practice to continue for more than 18 months, delaying hundreds of applications for more than a year. Since the revelations were made public, three

congressional committees and the Justice Department launched investigations and much of the top leadership including the acting commissioner of the IRS was replaced. The reason the report focuses on the terms Tea Party, Patriots, and 9/12 is that the IRS provided us a document at the beginning of our audit that shows these were the terms they used to select the potential political cases, George said in prepared testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Last month, the IRS provided documents to Congress that suggested some liberal and progressive groups might have been singled out for additional scrutiny as well information that was not included in Georges May report. Some Democratic lawmakers said this was proof that Georges report was one-sided. George, however, said he rst saw the documents last week. They were not provided during our audit, even though similar documents that list Tea Party but not Progressive were, George

said. I am disturbed that these documents were not provided to our auditors at the outset, and we are currently reviewing this issue. The IRS did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The IRS was screening the groups applications because agents were trying to determine their level of political activity. IRS regulations say tax-exempt social welfare organizations may engage in some political activity but the activity may not be their primary mission. It is up to the IRS to make that determination.
