Lyme disease puts bull’s-eye on Pa.

SCHOOL TAXES

The Wyoming Valley and other Pennsylvania communities are likely losing out on job and other economic opportunities because of the state’s marriage law and failure to protect people from job discrimination based on their sexual orientation, a business strategist says. Bob Witeck, president of Washington, D.C.-based Witeck Communications, has been researching the Lesbian/Gay/ Bisexual/Transgender community for corporations for the last 20 years. Research indicates that the LGBT community comprises 4 to 7 percent of the U.S. population and had $790 billion in buying power in 2012 nationally, said Witeck, making it the third largest minority after blacks and Hispanics. And according to research based on U.S. Census data, Luzerne County ranks 15th in the state among counties with more than 50 same-sex couples living in the same household. The county’s national rank is just below the median. But Pennsylvania does not welcome that population with open arms, Witeck said. He hopes a lawsuit seeking to overturn Pennsylvania’s marriage law, which defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman and prohibits recognition of marriages of same-sex couples performed in other states, “is going to change the perception of the state as welcoming.” Witeck noted that 278 companies signed on to a legal brief See GAY MARRIAGE| 11A

Sue Hand has known the agony of migraines. The headaches she experienced after contracting Lyme disease were worse. “I just want to feel good again,” said Hand, 67, a Dallas-based artist whose ordeal began after she suffered a tick bite on her back earlier this month while doing yard work on family property. In one sense, however, Hand was lucky: Full recovery might be a long way off, but at least she had a diagnosis relatively quickly. That’s something Jackson Township residents Ellen and Wayne Hughes longed for a quarter-century ago, when their young daughter Erin began suffering from excruciating joint pain after family members believe she suffered a tick bite during a 1988 vacation. They suffered with her for more than a decade, hoping someone could properly diagnose and treat their daughter’s increasing catalogue of unexplained symptoms, from severe joint pain to fatigue and falls. “The doctor kept saying, ‘There’s something going on here, but I don’t know what,’” Ellen Hughes said. “But nobody ever said, ‘Let’s test her for Lyme disease.’” Their stories demonstrate the range of ailments, emotions and health care issues experienced by those infected with Lyme, a tickborne illness that has has increased about 25-fold since reporting began in 1982, according to government statistics. Pa. in the crosshairs The Northeast has been ground zero for Lyme in the United States over the past 40 years.

Wayne and Ellen Hughes of Jackson Township have experienced Lyme disease in their family. A daughter and a son-in-law each contracted the disease.

HARRISBURG — For years, talk of property tax reform in Pennsylvania seemingly has been nothing more than failed bills and some slot machine cash. But some state legislators believe two bills they say will end rising real estate taxes are gaining traction. Whether they’ll pick up enough steam this session to come up for a vote is yet to be seen, but the bipartisan sponsorship lists on both the House and Senate versions are viewed by some as reason for hope. Among the area legislators who have signed on as Yudichak co-sponsors of the House version of the bill are: Tarah Toohil, R-Butler Township, Karen Boback, R-Harveys Lake, Sid Michaels Kavulich, D-Taylor, and Jerry Mullery, D-Newport Township. On the Senate side, co-sponsors include John Yudichak, Pashinski D-Plymouth Township, and Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township. Since the bills were first introduced this session, in March, they’ve gained additional co-sponsors. In the House, the bill was introduced with 62 co-sponsors and has climbed to See TAX REFORM | 12A

The disease takes its name from the Connecticut town where research into a cluster of cases came to national attention in the 1970s. It was there that what was initially believed to be rheumatoid arthritis in young people was tracked back to ticks, although it took several more years to identify the bacteria at the heart of the malady. Nationwide, the disease has blossomed in the Northeast and upper Mid-Atlantic, with lesser concentrations in the upper Midwest, Pacific Northwest and a scattering of cases elsewhere. Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut and parts of New York are among hardest-hit areas. “Lyme disease is a significant public health issue in Pennsylvania, with approximately 3,800 to 5,700 confirmed or probable cases reported annually in the past five years,”

said state Department of Health spokeswoman Kait Gillis. “We continue to be one of the leading states for Lyme disease nationwide,” she added. Just over 5,000 confirmed and probable cases were reported across the commonwealth in 2012, Gillis said, including 52 in Luzerne County, 43 in Lackawanna County, 29 in Wyoming County, 70 in Monroe County and 28 in Schuylkill County. But officials also acknowledge that local statistics might be misleading, as the infection can be contracted somewhere other than where the victim lives, while figures reflect where it was reported.

HIALEAH, Fla. — A man living with his mother in a South Florida apartment complex set their unit on fire and went on a shooting rampage throughout the building, killing six people before being shot to death by police. As the eight-hour standoff unfolded, horrified residents hunkered down in their homes, at times so close to the action they could feel the gunfire or hear negotiations between the gunman and police, authorities and witnesses said Saturday.

Eckley Miners Village in southern Luzerne County provides visitors with a unique opportunity to travel back in time at its annual 1940s festival this weekend. The two-day event portrays the sacrifices made by the people of Eckley — as well as all the region’s residents — who served bravely during World War II. The village-wide program includes replicas of Allied and Axis military encampments, gun-firing demonstrations and skirmishes, cavalry and military vehicle displays and costumed re-enactors portraying the daily lives of soldiers and mining patch town residents. Holocaust survivor Severin Fayerman was the weekend’s keynote speaker, presenting his memoirs on Saturday and today. Fayerman, an Auschwitz survivor, recounted his life in Poland, Pete G.

I’m not sure residents remember that fact.” Swing band music was to be provided throughout the weekend by area ensembles, and a special 1940s Swing Dance was held in the Freeland Public Park Pavilion on Saturday.

Former Wall tumbles at W-B clothing store Rep. Lindy Boggs dies
The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Former Rep. Lindy Boggs, a plantation-born Louisianan who used her soft-spoken grace to fight for civil rights during nearly 18 years in Congress a f t e r succeedBoggs ing her late husband in the House, died Saturday. She was 97. Boggs, who later served three years as ambassador to the Vatican during the Clinton administration, died of natural causes at her home in Chevy Chase, Md., according to her daughter, ABC News journalist Cokie Roberts. Boggs’ years in Congress started with a special election in 1973 to finish the term of her husband, Thomas Hale Boggs Sr., whose plane disappeared over Alaska six months earlier. Between them, they served a half-century in the House. “It didn’t occur to us that anybody else would do it,” Roberts said in explaining why her mother was the natural pick for the congressional seat. Her parents, who had met in college, were “political partners for decades,” she said, with Lindy Boggs running her husband’s political campaigns and becoming a player on the Washington political scene. Roberts called her mother “a trailblazer for women and the disadvantaged.” When Boggs announced her retirement in 1990, she was the only white representing a blackmajority district in Congress. “I am proud to have played a small role in opening doors for blacks and women,” she said at the time. As family tragedy brought her in to Congress, so did it usher her out. At the time of her July 1990 announcement, her daughter Barbara Boggs Sigmund, mayor of Princeton, N.J., was dying of cancer. Sigmund died that October. Her son, Thomas Hale Boggs Jr., is a leading Washington lawyer and lobbyist. The elder Boggs was first elected to Congress in 1940, two years after the couple married. Both were also active in local reform groups.

A section of a brick veneer wall at the Burlington Coat Factory collapsed, bringing Wilkes-Barre firefighters to the store along Spring Street around 9 p.m. Saturday. Plastic horses and yellow tape were placed to block the area before firefighters arrived, and Capt. Damian Lendacky said he was unsure when the collapse occurred. There were no injuries reported, he said. The city’s building inspector and PPL Electric Utilities were called to the scene.

San Diego mayor’s therapy plan flops with critics
Associated Press

ELLIOT SPAGAT

SAN DIEGO — Mayor Bob Filner’s announcement that he will undergo two weeks of fulltime therapy defies leaders of his own political party who demanded he resign over allegations of sexual harassment. The mayor’s plans failed to appease many who called for San Diego’s first Democratic leader in 20 years to step down less than eight months into his four-year term. Seven women identified themselves as targets of Filner’s unwanted advances that include touching. “Two weeks of therapy may help Bob Filner with his personal problems, but it does not help to address the needs of San Diego,” said Laura Fink, a political consultant who alleges that Filner patted her buttocks at a 2005 fundraiser when she was deputy campaign manager for the then-congressman. She is one of seven women who have publicly identified themselves as targets of Filner’s advances. Scott Peters, a first-term Democratic congressman from

San Diego, said the mayor would be unable to accomplish anything with controversy swirling around him. “I understand the mayor feels like he wants help, and I think that’s great,” Peters said. “I just don’t think it’s appropriate for him to do it as mayor. It’s pretty clear to me that he’s not going to be in a position to lead the city.” Lucas Powell, who works at a coffee house in the upscale Point Loma area and voted for Filner, said he was unimpressed by Filner’s announcement and believes the former 10-term congressman should step down as mayor. “Two weeks isn’t going change deep-seated opinions and behaviors,” Powell, 30, said during a lull in business Friday night. Julaine Rich, 45, called the two-week treatment plan “laughable” as she bought groceries nearby but was ambivalent about whether Filner should step down, partly because she was puzzled why it took years for some of the women to go public with detailed allegations. Filner’s problems began less than three weeks ago when a for-

mer councilwoman and onetime Filner supporter called for the mayor to step down, saying she had received credible evidence that he had harassed women. On Monday, Filner’s former communications director, Irene McCormack Jackson, became the first woman to publicly identify herself as target of Filner. McCormack, who took a $50,000 annual pay cut to join Filner’s inner circle in January, filed a lawsuit claiming that the mayor asked her to work without panties, demanded kisses, told her he wanted to see her naked and dragged her in a headlock while whispering in her ear. The other six women, who described their experiences to KPBS News, include Morgan Rose, a psychologist for the San Diego Unified School District who said the then-congressman repeatedly tried to kiss her during a 2009 meeting to discuss child welfare. Veronica “Ronne” Froman, a retired rear admiral, said Filner once blocked a doorway after others left a meeting, ran his finger up her cheek and asked

if she had a man in her life. Froman, who is known in San Diego as the “Navy Mayor” and has led the American Red Cross local chapter, said the incident occurred a couple years ago at Filner’s congressional office. Patti Roscoe, a businesswoman in the tourism and hospitality industry who knew Filner before he was elected to Congress in 1992, said Filner placed her in a “headlock” numerous times and tried to kiss her on the lips. “I’d have to squirm to get away. And just as recently as a few months ago this happened. I turned and he just slobbered down my chin,” Roscoe said. Filner, who is 70 and divorced, apologized earlier this month by releasing a video statement in which he acknowledged disrespecting and sometimes intimidating women and said he was seeking professional help, but Friday’s statement went further. “The behavior I have engaged in over many years is wrong,” he said at a nationally televised news conference. “My failure to respect women and the intimidating conduct I engaged in at times is inexcusable.

Flood closes I-85, damages roads in North Carolina
The Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A system of thunderstorms across western North Carolina stalled on Saturday and dumped about a foot of rain on the area, causing power outages and flash floods that swamped homes and washed out roads and bridges. There were 18 reports of swiftwater rescues, and one minor injury, said Jim Dickerson,

spokesman for Catawba County Emergency Services. He did not have details. Hickory Mayor Rudy Wright urged residents to stay indoors and away from flooded roads, The Charlotte Observer reported. “This is a time for all of us to be very careful and patient,” he said. “The cleanup is going to take a while.” Parts of Catawba and sur-

rounding counties were under water Saturday. Catawba County officials said some of the worst flash flooding in decades followed a nearly stationary weather system that dumped 10 inches of rain in about six hours. Officials closed 65 roads in Catawba County by Saturday afternoon. At least six will remain closed for up to three months to repair damage, Dickerson said.

A full damage assessment will begin today, he said. Several miles of Interstate 85 in Cabarrus County was closed for a short time due to high water. Traffic moved at a crawl along both I-85 and Interstate 77 north of Charlotte as drivers navigated water several inches deep in spots. In Lincoln County, there were reports of up to three feet of water covering roads.

Red Cross helps displaced families
The American Red Cross, Wyoming Valley Chapter, is assisting three families with food, clothes and housing arrangements after they were displaced by an apartment building fire early Friday morning on Cherry Street. The fire started around 1:30 a.m. Crews cleared the scene by about 3 a.m., a firefighter from Plymouth Station 3 said. The house sustained mostly smoke damage but appeared unfit for living, the firefighter said.

The Times Leader sought information on people delinquent on wage taxes
WILKES-BARRE — The city has denied a request to provide a list of people delinquent on the 3 percent wage taxes for the past two years, prompting an appeal by The Times Leader to the state Office of Open Records in Harrisburg. Through a Right to Know request, the newspaper last month sought the names and addresses of delinquent taxpayers and the amounts owed for 2011 and 2012. In a July 3 letter, the city’s Open Records Officer Margaret Sharksnas said the information sought was “confidential tax information” pursuant to the Local Tax Enabling Act and the Local Taxpayers Bill of Rights. The act protects a broad range of information from public disclosure, stating “any information gained by a tax officer or any employee or agent of a tax officer or of the tax collection committee as a result of any declarations, returns, investigation, hearings or verifications shall be confidential.” Sharksnas further stated the state Office of Open Records previously held the names and addresses obtained from tax returns “are exempt from disclosure under the LTEA.” The newspaper on July 11 appealed the denial to the Office of Open Records, which has 30 days to issue a binding final determination. Under the law, the burden of proof that the records are not subject to public access rests with the city. Joe Butkiewicz, executive editor of The Times Leader, disagreed with the city’s denial. “We think Times Leader

Newspaper denied access to W-B tax data
readers and the people who live and work in WilkesBarre have an interest in who is failing to pay the city wage tax,” he said. “I don’t see that information as a declaration, return, investigation, hearing or verification. It is a failure to return. The city would best serve residents, the many people who work here and other stakeholders to be open and transparent.”

ple about local history.” The cemetery includes the largest concentration of Civil War veterans in the nation, Brooks noted. Clark Switzer, a teacher from Wyoming Seminary, was dressed in period attire portraying Col. Edmund Dana, who fought in the 143rd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment during the war. Switzer (Dana) talked about his life in Wilkes-Barre, while standing over his burial site. In the past, families would ride buggies through the cemetery paths as a “repose,” he said. “It’s a peaceful place,” he said. And the cemetery did not discriminate. “Kings to paupers are buried here,” he said. Joe Slusser of WilkesBarre participated in one of the tours, recognizing many of the names on the stones as the names of local streets. He was astounded at how many Civil War veterans buried there had returned to Wilkes-Barre after the war to become local leaders. Most of all, he was impressed by the quality of the workmanship demonstrated in the stones and monuments, many dating back to the 1700s and 1800s. “These were handcarved back then, not done by machines like they are now,” Slusser said. Brooks said the cemetery is full, but there are some plots still waiting for their occupants. When the deceased have rights to the plots passed on to them through their families, they can be buried there, he said.

Man arrested in Walmart theft
Matthew Daniel McMahon, 36, of Edwardsville, has been arrested for allegedly stealing about $1,400-worth of shaving razors, over-the-counter pain and allergy medicine and Axe body spray from Walmart in Tunkhannock, state police said. McMahon loaded a tote container with the medicine and personal products on May 10 and dashed out of the store, state police said. He sped from the scene in a car that waited outside for him, police said. McMahon is charged with one misdemeanor count of receiving stolen property and one count of retail theft, court records show. He was jailed in Wyoming County Correctional Facility for lack of $15,000 bail. A pretrial hearing is scheduled for Aug. 7 in Wyoming County.

WILKES-BARRE — Ancestors of the “first families of the Wyoming Valley” are buried at the Hollenback Cemetery, Tony Brooks, executive director of the Luzerne County Historical Society, said during a tour of the cemetery on Saturday. Brooks conducted two, Civil War-themed tours during the day of the several-hundredyear-old graveyard, which is located in Wilkes-Barre’s north end. The cemetery includes 17 acres and more than 16,000 burial sites, Brooks said. Included are more than 600 Civil War veterans, many who became founders of local communities, prominent government officials and creators of wellknown businesses, he said. About 80 visitors taking the tours saw gravestones ranging from the very tall and ornate to tiny, almost unrecognizable slabs with the writing weathered away. They viewed some mausoleums as big as small homes bearing familiar area names such as Kirby, Butler, Dana, Beaumont, Slocum and Conyngham, as well as modest plates denoting the location of orphan children. Brooks emphasized the cemetery provides an educational look into the Wyoming Valley’s past and touring it gives history buffs a great opportunity to peek into the past. “It’s like living history,” he said. “It’s a great way to teach local peo-

House fire displaces two
A fire that started Friday evening outside a house on Clay Avenue’s 1200 block left two residents out of their home. An investigator’s initial report said the fire that started around 5 p.m. appears to have been accidental; an exact cause has yet to be determined, a firefighter said. Flames sparked outside, then moved through parts of the first floor before firefighters extinguished the blaze. The Red Cross, Lackawanna Chapter, is assisting with food and lodging for the two.

Jaime Verazin of Shavertown, center, is a member of Catapult Entertainment, a group that has reached the semifinals of ‘America’s Got Talent.’

A Shavertown native is a member of an innovative shadow transformation dance group that has reached the semifinals on the hit television show “America’s Got Talent.” Jaime Verazin, 28, daughter of Dr. Gary and Betsy Verazin of Shavertown, is competing with Catapult Entertainment on the show that airs every Tuesday and Wednesday at 9 p.m. on NBC. The judges on the show are Howard Stern, Howie Mandel, Mel B and Heidi Klum. Verazin’s group performs behind a giant 20-foot-by-40foot screen with a projector that sheds the light as the group creates different images and stories by manipulating their bodies and shadows. The group has formed the image of a helicopter with a female spy (Verazin) inside the chopper, she said. They also do a cliff face, and Verazin is the female spy that climbs up the cliff to escape. They also do animals, automobiles and other shapes. “It’s been really exciting,” Verazin said on a break from rehearsals. “Howard Stern even bowed after our first performance.” Verazin is a graduate of Bishop O’Reilly High School and attended DeSales University. She was accepted into MOMIX, a modern trans-formative dance company, and toured internationally with it for four and a half years,

performing in 13 countries. She moved back home for a year “to rest,” and then moved to New York City four years ago. She has done freelance dancing, including performances with the Metropolitan Opera Co. Verazin calls herself a risk taker, trying new and different art forms. “But being on America’s Got Talent has been really exciting,” she said. “Our group has gotten so much exposure.” The TV show has allowed the group to be noticed and accepted as dancers and artists. “We’re showing people the world of shadow dancing,” she said. The group’s director, Adam Battelstein, has taught with Verazin at Arts YOUniverse in Wilkes-Barre. If the 10-member group wins the $1 million grand prize, said Verazin, it will open many new doors, possibly in places such as Las Vegas.The group rehearses for hours for each 90-second TV performance, she said. The large field has been narrowed to 60 acts, and that will be pared to 20 by Aug. 21. The winner will be announced on Sept. 18. “Now we have to get votes from the public,” she said, noting that the TV judges no longer decide who goes forward. “We need people to watch and vote.” Verazin’s group will perform this Tuesday, and she urged Northeastern Pennsylvania residents to tune in and vote.

Pope continues to shake up church A bishop watches live video of Pope Francis as he waits for the pope to arrive for a meeting Saturday with Brazilian cardinals and bishops in Rio de Janeiro. Pope Francis took his message to shake up the Catholic Church to bishops from around the world, challenging them to get out of their churches and go to the farthest margins of society to find the faithful and preach.

WASHINGTON — A former CIA officer has broken the U.S. silence around the 2003 abduction of a radical Islamist cleric in Italy, charging that the agency inflated the threat he posed and that the United States then allowed Italy to prosecute her and other Americans to shield President George W. Bush and other U.S. officials from responsibility. Confirming for the first time that she worked under-

cover for the CIA when the operation took place, Sabrina De Sousa provided new details about the “extraordinary rendition” that led to the only criminal prosecution stemming from the secret Bush administration program launched after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. De Sousa is one of only a handful of former CIA officers who’ve spoken openly about the secret renditions in which suspected terrorists overseas were abducted without legal proceedings and then interrogated by other nations’ security services.

The cleric, Osama Mustapha Hassan Nasr, was snatched from a Milan street by a team of CIA operatives and flown to Egypt, where he was held for the better part of four years without charges and allegedly tortured. An Egyptian court in 2007 ruled that his imprisonment was “unfounded” and ordered him released. Among the allegations made by De Sousa in a series of interviews with McClatchy: • The former CIA station chief in Rome, Jeffrey Castelli, whom she called the mastermind of the operation, exaggerated Nasr’s terror-

ist threat to win approval for the rendition and misled his superiors that Italian military intelligence had agreed to the operation. • Senior CIA officials, including then-CIA Director George Tenet, approved the operation even though there were doubts about Castelli’s case — Nasr wasn’t wanted in Egypt and wasn’t on the U.S. list of top al-Qaida terrorists. • Condoleezza Rice, then the White House national security adviser, also had concerns about the case, especially what Italy would do if the CIA were caught, but she eventually agreed to it and recommended that Bush approve the abduction. De Sousa said her assertions are based on classi-

fied CIA cables that she read before resigning from the agency in February 2009, as well as on Italian legal documents and Italian news reports. She denies that she was involved in the operation, though she acknowledges that she served as the interpreter for a CIA “snatch” team that visited Milan in 2002 to plan the abduction. “I was being held accountable for decisions that someone else took and I wanted to see on what basis the decisions were made,” she said, explaining why she had delved into the CIA archives. “And especially because I was willing to talk to the Hill (Congress) about this because I knew that the CIA would not be upfront with them.”

Body recovered after boat crash
Authorities pulled a woman’s body from the Hudson River on Saturday near where a bride-to-be and her fiance’s best man were hurled into the water when a speedboat carrying six friends crashed into a construction barge near the Tappan Zee Bridge. Officials were working to confirm that it was the body of 30-year-old Lindsey Stewart, who has been missing since the Friday night accident, but they said it appeared to fit her description. The search for the missing man, 30-year-old Mark Lennon, was continuing, said Rockland County undersheriff Robert VanCura.

Senior officials ordered jailed

Iraq’s prime minister says he has ordered the detention of several senior security officials in connection with a major jailbreak that saw hundreds of inmates escape, including members of al-Qaida. The statement from Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s office Saturday said those detained include the chief of staff of the federal police’s fourth division, as well as other police, prison and intelligence officials. The statement called the escape of inmates from the notorious Abu Ghraib prison outside Baghdad last Sunday a “grave matter.”

The Army psychiatrist charged in the 2009 Fort Hood mass shooting said in a statement to Fox News that the U.S. government is at war with Islam. It’s the first statement Maj. Nidal Hasan has put out to the U.S. media. In the past, he has spoken via telephone with Al-Jazeera, the transcript of which is evidence in his upcoming trial. “My complicity was on behalf of a government that openly acknowledges that it would hate for the law of Almighty Allah to be the supreme law of the land,” Hasan said in the lengthy statement released to Fox News on Saturday. He then says in reference to a war on Islam, “I participated in it.” Hasan, 42, is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the November 2009 attack at the Texas Army post. His trial is scheduled to start Aug. 6. He faces the death penalty if convicted.

CHICAGO

A federal judge has found author and infomercial pitchman Kevin Trudeau in contempt of court for failing to pay a more than $37 million fine imposed over misleading ads for one of his wildly popular weight-loss books. Friday’s ruling was the latest round in more than a decade of legal battles that began with a suit filed by the Federal Trade Commission. The regulatory agency alleged some of Trudeau’s infomercials included false and misleading statements about his books. A federal judge in Chicago agreed and ordered him to stop. Then in 2007, Judge Robert Gettleman fined Trudeau $37.6 million for violating the order. On Friday, Gettleman said Trudeau failed to pay and ordered him to transfer ownership of companies and financial accounts to a court-appointed receiver. Gettleman found him in contempt, opting not to give him jail time out of concern that those hurt by his actions would never get compensated.

TV pitchman in contempt

PYONGYANG, North Korea — Goose-stepping soldiers, columns of tanks and a broad array of ominouslooking missiles poised on mobile launchers paraded through Pyongyang’s main square on Saturday in a painstakingly choreographed military pageant intended to strike fear into North Korea’s adversaries and rally its people behind young ruler Kim Jong Un on the 60th anniversary of the armistice that ended the Korean War. The lavish assembly of weapons and troops is reminiscent of the marches held by the Soviet Union and China at the height of the Cold War. It is one of the few chances the world gets to see North Korea’s military up close. Although Pyongyang frequently uses the occasion to reveal new, though not always operational, hardware, there didn’t appear to be any new weapons in Saturday’s parade. Its arsenal of missiles, however, was front-and-center. Overlooking a sea of spectators mobilized in Kim Il Sung Square to cheer and wave flags, leader Kim Jong Un saluted his troops from a review stand. He was flanked by senior military officials, the chests of their olive green and white uniforms laden with medals. As fighter jets screamed overhead, a relaxed

looking Kim smiled and talked with China’s vice president. China fought with North Korea during the war and is Pyongyang’s only major ally and a crucial source of economic aid. Kim did not make a speech. Saturday’s parade marks a holiday the North Koreans call “Victory Day in the Fatherland Liberation War,” although the 1950-53 Korean War ended in a truce and the Korean Peninsula remains technically at war. In Washington, President Barack Obama marked the day with a

speech at the Korean War Veterans Memorial on the National Mall, saying the anniversary marks the end of the war and the beginning of a long and prosperous peace. “Here today, we can say with confidence, that war was no tie, Korea was a victory,” with 50 million South Koreans living in freedom and “a vibrant democracy” in stark contrast to dire conditions in the North, Obama said. He said the U.S.-South Korea partnership remains “a bedrock of stability” throughout the Pacific region.

Morsi supporters killed in Egypt; death toll uncertain

CAIRO — Scores of people were killed and dozens more wounded Saturday in the worst violence in recent Egyptian history as police opened fire on supporters of deposed President Mohammed Morsi. The number of dead was impossible to confirm immediately as both Morsi supporters and the government offered widely different accounts. The Muslim Brotherhood, the secret organization through which Morsi ascended to the presidency, claimed as many as 200 dead, while the Ministry of Interior announced implausibly that police never fired a live round at the protesters,

despite all evidence to the contrary. Health ministry officials put the death toll at 38 and another 200 injured. But just a brief visit to a field hospital treating casualties showed those numbers were far too conservative. A McClatchy reporter at the hospital counted 27 dead and as she left, three more bodies arrived, adding to a frantic and horrific scene. At least three of the dead had been shot in the head. Over and over, hospital workers would move a body to the ground and search the pockets for an identification card. When they found one, they wrote the name on an arm. Two other hospitals were also treating the wounded.

Doctors said the injuries could only have come from professional marksmen. Ebtesan Zain, a gynecologist, said she

came to help her fellow doctors only to discover she was not needed — everyone she encountered was dead.

TRIPOLI, Libya — More than 1,000 detainees escaped from a prison near the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi in a massive jailbreak Saturday, officials said, as protesters stormed political party offices in Libya’s main cities. It wasn’t immediately clear if the jailbreak at the al-Kweifiya prison came as part of the demonstrations. Protesters had massed across the country angry over the killing of an activist critical of the country’s Muslim Brotherhood group. Gunmen outside of the prison fired into the air as inmates inside began setting fires, suggesting the jailbreak was preplanned, a Benghazi-based security official said. Those who escaped either face or were convicted of serious charges, a security official at al-Kweifiya prison said. The two officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they weren’t authorized to speak to journalists. Special forces later arrested 18 of the escapees, while some returned on their own, said Mohammed Hejazi, a government security official in Benghazi. Three inmates were wounded in the jailbreak and were taken to a local hospital, he said. There also was confusion initially about how many prisoners broke out, with numbers of escapees ranging as high as 1,200. Benghazi’s security situation is among the most precarious in post-revolution Libya. Last year, U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in the city. Meanwhile Saturday, hundreds gathered in the capital Tripoli after dawn prayers, denouncing the Friday shooting death of Abdul-Salam Al-Musmari. They set fire to tires in the street and demanded the dissolution of Islamist parties. The two incidents highlighted Libya’s precarious security situation and the challenges the North African country faces as it tries to restore security nearly two years after the ouster and killing of longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi. In Tripoli, protesters appeared to be inspired by events in neighboring Egypt, where millions took to the streets Friday to answer a call from the army chief, who said he wanted a mandate to stop “potential terrorism” by supporters of the country’s ousted president, Mohammed Morsi, who hails from the Brotherhood. “We don’t want the Brotherhood, we want the army and the police,” Libyan protesters chanted, repeating a slogan also used in Egypt. Libya’s nascent security forces are struggling to control the country’s militias, most of whom have roots in the rebel groups that overthrew Gadhafi in 2011.

Obama and McCain are Washington’s newest odd couple
JULIE PACE
AP White House Correspondent

WASHINGTON — There was no conciliatory phone call, no heart-to-heart talk to soothe the tensions. No one knows exactly when President Barack Obama and Republican Sen. John McCain went from bitter rivals in the 2008 presidential campaign and foes over health care and national security to bipartisan partners. Yet in recent months, an alignment on high-profile domestic issues — not to mention an eye on their respective legacies — has transformed Obama and McCain into Washington’s most unexpected odd couple. The Arizona senator is a regular visitor to the West Wing and in near-daily contact with senior White House officials. McCain, in an Associated Press interview, said that he and Obama “trust each other.” White House chief of staff Denis McDonough, among the Obama advisers who speak regularly with McCain, praised the lawmaker as a “refreshing” partner who “welcomes a debate and welcomes action.” Like any good business arrangement in the nation’s capital, the secret to the new Obama-McCain alliance ultimately comes down to this: Both sides believe that

working together is mutually beneficial and carries little political risk. For Obama, the senator has become a rare Republican backer of important elements on the president’s second-term agenda, including immigration overhaul, stricter background checks for gun buyers and perhaps a fall budget deal. In return, McCain has secured increased access to the White House and an opportunity to redeem his reputation as a Capitol Hill “maverick.” That image was tainted when McCain tacked to the right during his failed 2008 presidential run against Obama. “I’ve told the people of Arizona, I will work with any president if there are ways I can better serve Arizona and the country,” McCain said. “That seems to be an old-fashioned notion but it’s the case.” Indeed, the level of attention lavished on a functional working relationship between the Democratic president and the Republican senator underscores how rare such partnerships have been during Obama’s tenure. Lawmakers, including some Democrats, long have chafed at Obama’s distant dealings with Capitol Hill and his supposed lack of understanding about how Congress operates.

It’s unlikely that Obama and McCain’s partnership will lead to a larger detente between the White House and congressional Republicans. While McCain may have sway over some like-minded members of the Senate Republican caucus, he has considerably less influence with his party’s

more conservative wing, particularly in the GOPcontrolled House. Still, the White House is hopeful that forging policy breakthroughs with McCain and other Senate Republicans will isolate the House GOP and perhaps persuade them to act. The first test of that strat-

egy probably will be the White House-backed immigration overhaul. McCain helped write and shepherd the bill through the Senate last month. Its future in the House is deeply uncertain. The administration also will try to work with McCain ahead of impending budget battles, McDonough

said, given that the senator and the White House agree there is a negative impact from across-the-board federal budget cuts, particularly on the military and defense industry. McDonough said it’s not just a shared view on policy that has made McCain an attractive partner to Obama

on these and other issues. It’s their mutual disdain for Washington meetings that never move beyond the standard talking points. “Part of what’s great to work with him is his impatience with that,” McDonough said. “You can kind of get into the meat of the matter very quickly.”

Airshowsclipped bybudgetcuts
M.L. JOHNSON
Associated Press

MILWAUKEE — One of the nation’s largest air shows begins Monday in Wisconsin, and for each of the 10,000 planes flying in, the federal government will collect about $45 for air traffic control services. The fee has angered pilots, who already pay for air traffic control through a fuel tax, and aviation enthusiasts, who say air shows have been disproportionately hurt by the automatic federal budget cuts that went into effect earlier this spring. This is the first time the Federal Aviation Administration has charged for air traffic control at AirVenture, which draws hundreds of thousands of people each year. The event is a fundraiser for the nonprofit Experimental Aircraft Association, which paid the $447,000 fee but has petitioned for a refund in federal court. Air show organizers nationwide are watching the fight under the assumption that if EAA loses, they too could soon be asked to pay. “It will be another blow to an industry that can’t sustain that kind of problem right now,” said John Cudahy, president of the International Council of Air Shows, which represents hundreds of events. Dozens of air shows were cancelled earlier this year after the military grounded its jet and demonstration teams because of the budget cuts. The teams draw big crowds, and organizers of some shows felt they wouldn’t be able to bring in enough people without them. Some shows that did go on, such as the Vectren Dayton Air Show in Ohio, saw attendance drop twothirds or more. AirVenture is among a handful of air shows being charged this year for air traffic control. Most include flyins, in which pilots arrive in their own planes, and have heavier air traffic than shows where people come by car or public transportation. A small fly-in could involve 100 or so pilots gathering at an airport for a pancake breakfast. Large ones, like AirVenture, involve thousands of planes coming and going over a week. The FAA plans to provide

87 air traffic controllers and supervisors for AirVenture. Spokeswoman Elizabeth Isham Cory said the automatic federal budget cuts forced it to seek payment for the cost. The agency said previously it had to cut $384 million from its budget by Sept. 30. John Leenhouts, president and CEO of Sun ‘n Fun Inc. in Lakeland, Fla., said it received notice about three weeks before its April event that it would have to pay more than $200,000 for air traffic control services. By that time, Sun ‘n Fun and its partner organizations — including aircraft, engine and aviation equipment manufacturers — had invested about $4 million in the event. “So there’s no turning it off, you have to do it,” said Leenhouts, a former Navy pilot. The Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association donated $125,000 in recognition of the event’s $55 million impact on the state economy, he said. But Sun ‘n Fun, a nonprofit focused on aviation education, is still struggling to pay the rest of the tab. “We cannot do scholarships or even put together some programs for kids to learn to fly,” Leenhouts said. EAA officials fear they will be in a similar position. Like Sun ‘n Fun, AirVenture is a fundraiser for aviation education programs, and EAA board chairman Jack Pelton said the unexpected 7 percent increase in costs means less will be left for those charitable efforts. It is a particularly bitter pill because the federal budget that went into effect Oct. 1 included money for air traffic control for major aviation events, as did previous budgets, said Pelton, a private pilot and former CEO of Cessna Aircraft Co. Air traffic control is funded partly by Congress and partly with a fuel tax paid by pilots. Many fliers now feel they are being taxed twice. Dick Knapinski, a private pilot and spokesman for EAA, called it an “ominous precedent.” “Congress sets the appropriations and tells the agencies how to operate their budget, but the FAA has gone around that process without any congressional approval or public input,” he said.

Winifred Schooley Shortz
July 18, 2013 Winifred Schooley Shortz, formerly of Dallas and Kingston, passed away Thursday, July 18, 2013, at the Pennwood Village Retirement Community, Newtown, Pa. Born in Wilkes-Barre, Winifred was the daughter of the late Harry B. and Winifred Griffith Schooley. She received her early education at the Wilkes-Barre Institute from 1927-1938 and finished her remaining two years at boarding school at The Masters School in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., graduating in 1940. Winifred earned a B.A. degree in psychology from Smith College, Northampton, Mass., in 1944. After graduation from college, Winifred was the Head of Sales Promotion with New York’s former Blue Cross Plan, Associated Hospital Service, from 1944 until 1947. Winifred married Robert Edwin Shortz in 1947 and traveled with him to Germany, where she was a liaison between German and American women in Division Headquarters in Goppingen, Germany, during the occupation in the 1950s. Winifred returned to the Wyoming Valley to raise their children: daughter, Winifred, and sons, Robert E. Jr., Edwin Shortz III and Frederick M., all of whom would attend her alma mater, the former Wilkes-Barre Institute by then known as Wyoming Seminary Day School. In 1957, Mrs. Shortz began her teaching career, starting as a substitute eighth-grade teacher at the Wyoming Seminary Day School. She went on to teach full-time, seventh-grade French, eighth-grade American history and seventh- and eighth-grade English classes. In addition, Mrs. Shortz served as a faculty advisor of the yearbook for five years; she was in charge of eighth-grade assembly speeches, supervised the testing program for grades one through eight and would eventually become head of the English department. Mrs. Shortz retired in 1974 and at the time of her retirement was awarded faculty emeritus status. Mrs. Shortz’s involvement with the school did not end with her retirement, however. After the Agnes flood of 1972, Mrs. Shortz, who had always been concerned with compiling and preserving the history of her alma mater, began to gather and organize the various material and memorabilia associated with the school and its predecessors. In 1976, with the board’s approval, Mrs. Shortz agreed to assemble and write the history of the Wyoming Seminary Lower School from its beginnings to the retirement of Bessie G. Atwood in 1962.

MrS. helen grace (punKy) burKe
July 25, 2013 Mrs. Helen Grace (Punky) Burke, 76, of Duryea, passed away Thursday at University of Pennsylvania Hospital, Philadelphia. Born in Pittston, she was the daughter of the late Jack and Emma Purcell Miller. She was a graduate of Pittston High School, Wilkes University and the University of Pittsburgh, where she received her master’s degrees in art and education. Mrs. Burke was truly the heart and soul of Holy Rosary School, Duryea. In her professional capacity, she served as the chairperson for the school’s first Middle States Accreditation in 1991, and co-chairperson for the 2001 Middle States Re-accreditation. She was a member of the National Catholic Schools Teachers Association, a mentor teacher for new faculty members, and organized faculty book clubs and learning communities. However, her real love was her students, and she spent countless hours beyond the school day with them. Throughout her teaching career she taught third, fourth, sixth, seventh and eighth grades, and on any given day you could find her tutoring after school or working on extracurricular activities. Mrs. Burke started a summer reading book club for her fourthgraders, who enjoyed meeting at her house, floating in her pool with books in hand and snacking on goodies. Her love of music inspired her to start the HRS Junior Choir in 1986, and she directed it for 20 years. Mrs. Burke also initiated the Forensic Program at Holy Rosary, and was the varsity and junior varsity teams’ moderator until her retirement. She willingly shared her amazing artistic talent, designing and building props and sets for all school events, literally turning paper, tape and glue into beautiful decorations. One of her favorite pastimes was rolling down the hill at McDade Park with her students on their class trip. Even in retirement, Mrs. Burke never really left Holy Rosary School, coming each day to work with students in the school’s Title I program. Generations of students and faculty will agree: She has left her handprint on each of our hearts. She was a member of Nativity of Our Lord Parish, Duryea. She was a loving wife, mom, sister, aunt and friend. She and her husband, Paul, celebrated their 43rd wedding anniversary June 24. Also surviving are son, David Burke and his wife, Heather, of Duryea; daughter, Rachael Carns and her husband, James, of Sewell, N.J.; brother, Edward Miller and his wife, Kathy, of Bear Creek; brother, Jack Miller, of Thornhurst; brother, William Miller and his wife, Mary, of Duryea; sister, Emma Ruth and her husband, Bruce, of Jenkins Township; and nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be held at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Bernard J. Piontek Funeral Home Inc., 204 Main St., Duryea, with Mass of Christian Burial at 9:30 a.m. in Holy Rosary Church, Duryea, with the Rev. Andrew Sinnott officiating.

Gay marriage
From page 1A suggesting that repealing California’s Defense of Marriage Act would be good for business. Employers, he said, are hesitant to locate businesses in states and communities in which some of their employees would not feel welcome and can’t enjoy the financial privileges and protections that straight couples are guaranteed. Relocation factor Pennsylvania’s lack of equal protections for gays also decreases the amount of available talent in the hiring pool, he said, because people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender tend to live in communities in which they are welcome and accepted. John Dawe, executive director of the NEPA Rainbow Alliance, said that “if marriage equality does not pass in Pennsylvania, we will most definitely see a loss in talent as same-sex couples relocate to any other state in the Northeast that treats all people equally, which would be every state except Pennsylvania.” “We will also see talented individuals and families not locate to Pennsylvania because of the discriminatory position compared to our neighboring states,” Dawe said. “We’ve already seen it happen.” When Witeck was asked how big the gay population is in Luzerne County or Northeastern Pennsylvania, he said it’s hard to quantify. The U.S. Census Bureau compiles information on same-sex couples who live together, but it does not specifically ask the sexual orientation of individuals. Same-sex households According to Census data compiled by the Williams Institute at UCLA School of

“One of the things that is closely related to the issue (of) marriage equality is the idea of bullying in school, and I certainly got a lot of that. I sang in the chorus and I played in the band and I sang in the church choir and I did all those kinds of things, so I was a little different than the football/baseball-playing group,” Palmer said. 40 years later Fast-forward 40-some years, and attitudes have begun to change in the Wyoming Valley and surrounding communities, according to Casey Evans, 26, of Lehman Township. “I’m from the Back Mountain, and in the late 1990s and early 2000s, it was tough being a teenager who was out in high school,” said Evans, who works at his family’s restaurant on Harveys Lake. “It was rough. It was very … I’m trying to come up with a word to describe it that wouldn’t be vulgar, that wouldn’t be very profane, because that’s really what it was, it was a profane experience. It was horrifying.” “What LGBT youth had to go through in this area and areas across the country was absolutely horrifying because you were in a confined area that you had to be in every single day, and kids can be cruel. “Today, I’m very happy to say that mindset — at least among the youth — has changed, and it seems to be changing among our adults as well,” Evans said. A profound change Since he came out when he was in eighth grade in 2002, Evans said being openly gay has become much easier. He’s not at all reluctant to talk about his fiancee, Jaron Nielsen, a Canadian who is living in Bloomsburg. Evans also ran for a seat on Luzerne County Council in 2011. And area residents — for the most part — have been

SAME-SEX FEMALE COUPLES BY COUNTY
Luzerne County is one of 15 statewide with between 1.9 and 2.4 same-sex female couples per 1,000 households. Same-sex couples per 1,000 households 0.2 - 1.8 1.9 - 2.4 2.5 - 2.8 2.9 - 3.7

With 80 same-sex couples, Wilkes-Barre ranks 22nd statewide while Scranton comes in 19th with 153. Different times While Luzerne County has a significant number of samesex couples today who are open about their orientation on Census forms, it certainly wasn’t always that way. When David Palmer was growing up in Shavertown 50-some years ago, being gay in Luzerne County was far from acceptable, he said. “Back in those days, in the ’50s and ’60s, you didn’t dare come out or identify yourself that way, and I didn’t,” said the 65-year-old Palmer, who along with his partner, Edwin Hill, 10 other same-sex couples, a widow and a teenager are plaintiffs in a lawsuit seeking marriage equality in Pennsylvania. “I never met another person that identified themselves as gay until I was in my late 20s. So when I was (living) in the Luzerne County/Wilkes-Barre area, I never met anyone that identified themselves that way,” Palmer, who now lives in Northampton County, said in a recent phone interview.

Law, households with samesex partners increased by nearly 52 percent nationally — from 594,391 to 901,997 — between 2000 and 2010. In Luzerne County, same-sex partner households increased about 66 percent, from 487 to 808. Witeck, who was retained by the Census Bureau to conduct LGBT outreach and “get the word out to gay couples to respond” in the 2010 Census, believes the numbers doesn’t necessarily indicate population growth, but rather is the result of better counting. And although methodology has improved, he believes those numbers are still an under-

count. Dawe agrees. He notes that the Census Bureau employs people to conduct Census questionnaires in their own communities, and many gay people might be reluctant to identify themselves as such for fear of discrimination. The same Census data show Luzerne County’s rank of 15th in the state for the number of same-sex couples per 1,000 households. Lackawanna County ranks 22nd. Pike, Philadelphia and Dauphin counties comprise the top three, respectively. Luzerne County ranks 628th nationally for the number of same-sex couple households

accepting and supportive. The change in people’s attitudes towards gay people, he said, “has been dramatic. It’s been a complete reversal. Back in the early 2000s it never occurred to me, even when Massachusetts legalized gay marriage, that we would come this far in such a short amount of time.” It’s also encouraging to him that the NEPA Rainbow Alliance offers support for the LGBT community as well as organized opportunities to socialize, even though there are three gay bars in Luzerne County — one each in WilkesBarre, Plains Township and Luzerne — and one in Lackawanna County — in Moosic. Evans believes social events such as the Rainbow Alliance’s annual PrideFest in Kirby Park in Wilkes-Barre serve as an important support structure in the LGBT community, “especially for people who are just coming out or who are not out yet who might be looking for that courage to be public with that decision.” He pointed out that more area businesses are supporting the LGBT community, noting that there were only about a dozen vendors at the area’s inaugural PrideFest in 2008, and now there are dozens. “I think that businesses are seeing the economic benefit of making sure that they are attracting the gay community, making sure that they are welcoming places instead of exclusive places,” Evans said. “There’s also a moral benefit as well,” he said. “A lot of businesses are seeing that discrimination is just plain wrong. You see that in antidiscrimination policies and hiring practices even though Pennsylvania doesn’t require it. … The fact that they’re making that voluntary step is astounding, and all of this in just about 10 years.”

Tiny ticks can spread big problems
Lyme’s symptoms escalate dramatically if untreated

Lyme
From page 1A Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township, said the facility might see three to four cases a week during the peak season, from late spring until the end of summer. Lyme initially gained a foothold in eastern and southern counties and now appears to be spreading westward and northward throughout the state, Gillis said, placing larger proportions of Pennsylvania’s population at risk. Lyme numbers vary from year to year for a number of reasons, Gillis said, adding that the “true” incidence may be difficult to measure. Factors could include changes in weather patterns, migration of tick populations, genetic changes, increased exposure of people to ticks due to urban sprawl or fluctuations in species that harbor ticks, such as deer, she said. “From surveillance data alone, it is usually impossible to tell what specific factors are playing a role.” “As the weather becomes nicer, residents spend more time outdoors and don’t wear layers and layers of clothing — leaving them open to be being bitten by an infected tick,” Gillis said. “We suggest that citizens wear protective clothing, use insect repellent and do a full body check after spending time outdoors. Showering within two hours of outdoor exposure may also help prevent transmission.” Lessons learned late Hand, who works outdoors frequently, knew those guidelines well. She thought she was doing the right things. And she knew an aging pile of wood that she was working around was an ideal breeding ground for ticks. Even with knowledge and care, detection can be difficult, as some ticks are barely visible to the naked eye. “I dress accordingly. I would go home and take an immediate bath with some good strong soap,” she added. “But I didn’t check my back.” That was where one of the tiny arachnids had attached itself and bitten her, Hand would learn more than a week later, after experiencing not just headaches but severe joint pain, a swollen lymph node and, eventually, a serious fever. “If I had known three weeks ago what I know now? I’m not necessarily sure that I would have done anything differently,” Hand said. Twenty-five years ago, the Hughes family knew nothing of the dangers, and never saw the tick that apparently bit daughter Erin, who is now in her late 30s. “We think we know how she acquired it,” Ellen Hughes said. “We took a motor home to Cape Cod. We didn’t know (the area) was infested at the time.” A long ordeal It was Ellen Hughes who actually felt a bite that summer. One night during the trip, she was disturbed by the sensation of something picking at her head. She turned to her husband in distress. “‘You have a tick in your head’ he said. So he took it out, and that was the end of it,” she said. But it was only the beginning of their daughter’s ordeal. A few months later, the teen began complaining of pains in her neck. She began seeing a chiropractor, Hughes said, and would continue to do so several times each week through college. “Everywhere she went, she would seek out a chiropractor,” Hughes said. “When we went on a vacation, she had to know where there was a chiropractor.” Erin moved to New York to study art. She got married. But well into her 20s, the symptoms only got worse, her mother said. She began falling down and experienced difficulty holding on to things. “She couldn’t even hold her sister’s newborn baby,” Hughes said. Wayne Hughes added, “She fell in the middle of Fifth Avenue and broke her wrist.” Diagnosis fleeting One possibility was myasthenia gravis, an autoimmune neuromuscular disease that can affect the use of muscles and limbs. There were more doctor’s visits, including to a New York specialist in myasthenia gravis. But neither the chiropractors nor doctors pinpointed Lyme disease or anything like it. It wasn’t until another family member fell ill that a diagnosis came into sight. Bill Rolland, the pharmacist husband of Erin’s twin sister Stacy, believed he had been bitten by a tick during a visit to Tennessee, Ellen Hughes said. A short time later, during a family visit to Lake George, N.Y., about eight years ago, he developed severe flu-like symptoms despite the warm weather. “No one else got sick,” Hughes said. After enduring his own battle for a diagnosis, Rolland insisted on a Lyme disease test, which came back positive, Hughes said. And he suggested that perhaps Erin was suffering from the same condition. A visit to a New York Lyme specialist confirmed Rolland’s suspicions. It also allowed doctors to begin treating Erin’s symptoms. It didn’t mean an end to all the pain, and Hughes wonders whether things would have been different had the diagnosis come sooner. There is much debate in the medical community over cases in which people infected with Lyme go on to suffer debilitating ailments for years after the original infection. Some refer to this as post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome, or chronic Lyme, and believe that the syndrome is caused by Lyme bacteria, or Borrelia burgdorferi, which remains in the body. Others dispute that view, suggesting that different causes — perhaps related to the original infection, perhaps not — might be at work. Proper treatment While the medical community continues to strive for evidence of the syndrome’s causes, there also remains considerable debate over what should be the proper treatment, particularly whether it is appropriate to treat the symptoms with longterm antibiotics. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, for example, says “studies have shown that continuing antibiotic therapy is not helpful and can be harmful for persons with PTLDS,” both in terms of increased resistance to antibiotics and the potential for failing to diagnose some other, equally dangerous condition. That view is not shared by all. “As a family, we really don’t care what they say it is,” Hughes said wearily. “It is a mess.”

LYME DISEASE BASICS
Who: Anyone of any age may come into contact with infected ticks and become infected. When: Ticks may be active year-round, but officials advise extra vigilance in warmer months, chiefly April through September. Where: Wooded and bushy areas, as well as areas with high grass and leaf litter are the most common tick habitats. Prevention State Health Department recommendations include: • Use insect repellent containing low concentrations of DEET on clothing and exposed skin, except for your face. Apply DEET sparingly, and do not use under clothing. • Avoid tick-infested areas. • Wear light-colored clothing so ticks can be spotted more easily. • Wear a hat, long-sleeved shirt and long pants for added protection. • Walk in the center of trails to avoid overhanging brush. • Clear tall grasses and brush around homes and at the edge of lawns. • Place a 3-foot wide barrier of wood chips or gravel between lawns and wooded areas and around patios and play equipment. This will restrict tick migration into recreational areas. • Check yourself, family members and pets for ticks after leaving potentially tick infested areas and promptly remove any ticks detected. Tick removal The CDC advises: • Use fine-tipped tweezers to grasp the tick as close to the skin’s surface as possible. • Pull upward with steady, even pressure. Don’t twist or jerk the tick; this can cause the mouth-parts to break off and remain in the skin. If this happens, remove the mouth-parts with tweezers. If you are unable to remove the mouth easily with clean tweezers, leave it alone and let the skin heal. • After removing the tick, thoroughly clean the bite area and your hands with rubbing alcohol, an iodine scrub, or soap and water. • Avoid folklore remedies such as “painting” the tick with nail polish or petroleum jelly, or using heat to make the tick detach from the skin.

Ixodes scapularis. That’s the Latin name for what is commonly known as the blacklegged or deer tick. Before it bites a host and becomes engorged with the victim’s blood, the minuscule arachnid might be not much bigger than the “x” in the first sentence of this story. Its capacity for damage far outweighs the organism’s diminutive size. In Pennsylvania and other eastern states, Ixodes scapularis is the type of tick that carries Lyme Disease, spreading across the region attached to deer, small rodents and, ultimately, human beings. Their devastating cargo also has a Latin name: Borrelia burgdorferi, which refers to the squiggly coils of bacteria that are passed from the ticks to their hosts. The moniker Lyme disease comes from the Connecticut town where a cluster of cases in the 1970s ultimately led scientists toward identification of the bacteria that causes the infection. However, as a feature article in The New Yorker, “The Lyme Wars,” pointed out this month, “nearly everything else” about Lyme disease has been the subject of intense debate, including symptoms, diagnosis and treatment. While some symptoms are broadly common, there is enough variation to cause confusion and dissent. Public health officials, including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the state Health Department, note that the condition most commonly results in a distinctive Erythema Migrans “bull’s-eye” rash at anywhere from three to 30 days after being bitten. But while most victims will see such a rash — anywhere from 70 to 90 percent, health officials report — not all will, bewildering patients who may ultimately learn they were bitten by a tick that they never saw, and which never left vis-

ible evidence of its presence. In those patients who do suffer a rash, the outbreak can reach up to 12 inches across, and may appear on any part of the body, not just the bite location. Initial symptoms The infection is typically accompanied in its early stages by fatigue, chills, fever, headache, muscle and joint aches, and swollen lymph nodes, the CDC notes. Some patients suffer heart palpitations and dizziness. Sue Hand, a Dallas resident who contracted Lyme disease this month after working outdoors around a woodpile, described having many of those symptoms. Hand learned that she had been bitten on the back by a tick, which she believes she was bitten the first week of July. By mid-month, she was suffering headaches, severe back pain and a swollen lymph node. There were sleepless nights, and eventually a 103.5-degree

fever, and Hand had to be hospitalized, and given an intense regimen of antibiotics. Despite describing lingering discomfort during an interview last week, Hand saw reason for optimism. “My doctor believes that we caught it fast,” Hand said. That, public health officials say, is crucial. Left untreated, the CDC notes, Lyme can result in facial palsy, joint swelling, arthritis, and for others, neurological complaints such as memory loss. Dr. Rowena Medina, of Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in WilkesBarre, noted that contrary to what some may have heard, it is possible to be re-infected by Lyme disease, and she encourages those who have been previously treated to maintain the same care and prevention standards as those who have never been infected. “I always tell my patients that they have to be careful when they do outdoor activities,” Medina said.

Shooting
From page 1A two people hostage at gunpoint for up to three hours in their apartment until a SWAT team entered and killed him, police said. The hostages were not hurt. “The crime scene is the whole building,” said Lt. Carl Zogby, a spokesman with the Hialeah Police Department. Police were called to the aging, five-story apartment building in Hialeah, a working class suburb a few miles northwest of downtown Miami, at 6:30 p.m. Friday. The first calls reported a fire, but when firefighters arrived, they heard shots and immediately notified police, Zogby said. Vargas, who has no known criminal record, set a combustible liquid on fire in his fourthfloor apartment. Building manager Italo Pisciotti, 79, and his wife, Camira Pisciotti, 69, saw smoke and ran to the unit, Zogby said. When they arrived, Vargas opened the door and fired, killing both. Detectives were investigating whether Vargas had any ongoing disputes with the building manager, as some residents believed. His mother was not home at the time. After gunning down the building managers, Vargas went back into his burning apartment and fired 10 to 20 shots from a 9mm pistol into the street.

The gunman then kicked his way into a third-floor apartment, where he shot to death Patricio Simono, 54; his wife Merly Niebles, 51; and their 17-year-old daughter. Family members said Simono worked at a car wash and Niebles cleaned hotel rooms. Their daughter wanted to be a nurse. All six people were killed in a short time span, Zogby said, and it’s possible they were all dead by the time police arrived. Officers and Vargas then engaged in an hours-long shootout and chase, with police fol-

Several hours into the ordeal, Vargas forced his way into a fifth-story unit and held two people captive. Sgt. Eddie Rodriguez said negotiators and a SWAT team tried talking with him from the other side of the door. Miriam Valdes, 70, was in a friend’s apartment two doors down. She said she heard officers trying to convince Vargas to surrender. “Pedro let these people out,” Valdes said officers told him.

“We’re going to help you.” She said the gunman first asked for his girlfriend and then his mother but refused to cooperate. Rodriguez said the talks eventually “just fell apart.” Officers stormed the building, fatally shooting the gunman in an exchange of gunfire. Zogby said Vargas still had several rounds of ammunition when he was killed. “He was ready to fight,” Zogby said. The hostages, identified as Zoeb and Sarrida Nek, were shaken up but not hurt, he said. Police and neighbors described Vargas as a quiet

Harrisburg’s inaction on property tax reform frustrates Toohil
ANDREW M. SEDER
aseder@timesleader.com

HAZLETON — Day after day, state Rep. Tarah Toohil says she hears the same questions from constituents in her Hazleton-area district: “When is Harrisburg going to eliminate property taxes?” She wishes she had an answer for them, she says, but for many reasons she just keeps telling them she knows it’s important to them and she hopes it will be addressed

soon. While some fellow legislators believe that day is coming, perhaps as early as this session, Toohil doesn’t have that same optimism. “All of the other Harrisburg issues seem to take precedent and this always seems to get put on the back burner,” said Toohil, R-Butler Township, who was elected in 2010 after a door-to-door grassroots campaign in which she heard from plenty of residents about the hardships of making ends

meet with the ever-rising property taxes. Those frustrations have only grown louder since she’s been Toohil elected. W h i l e Toohil is a Republican, she said some of the blame for not getting anything accomplished rests on the shoulders of fellow conservatives who

took “no-tax pledges.” “I am not one of them,” she noted. Because some elected officials did, including Gov. Tom Corbett, they’re apprehensive about raising the sales tax or personal income tax or any other tax to generate the revenue required to eliminate property taxes to pay for public education, she said. Toohil said that the entire real estate tax system is outdated, but it’s also so intertwined in the state’s culture

that to change it now would take a lot of cooperation among legislators that would require assurances that enough money would be generated to pay for education under the new system. “It’s such a complicated issue,” Toohil said. “It’s been ignored and it doesn’t ever get talked about in Harrisburg, but it comes up day to day with the people that walk into my office.” She co-sponsored a House bill that would increase some

taxes to offset the property taxes to fund education, she said. While she might not agree with everything the bill calls for, she wants it to be brought to the House floor for discussion so common ground can be found and the premise of property tax reform or elimination can become reality. “It’s gaining traction, but I don’t think it’s there yet,” said Toohil. “The more we can talk about it and bring attention to it, the better chance we have of finally making progress.”

Tax reform
From page 1A 85, in the 203-member chamber. In the Senate, the bill was introduced with 17 co-sponsors and now boasts 22, in the 50-member chamber. Momentum Yudichak said there’s no doubt the issue “has picked up momentum,” and he said the reasons are a combination of a more vocal taxpayers and the governor taking the ax to state education funding three years ago. “Citizen advocates are doing a much better job organizing themselves and communicating their message,” Yudichak said. He added that when Gov. Tom Corbett, a Republican, chopped $1 billion in education funding, residents began calling for property tax reform. He said that putting 20,000 public school employees into the unemployment line and causing 70 percent of school districts to raise taxes have helped to gain supporters of the bills from urban and rural legislators, Democrats and Republicans. “That crystallized their position and made them realize we need to change how we fund public schools,” Yudichak added, calling the current taxation system “antiquated.” The so-called “Property Tax Independence Act” would replace revenues currently collected through school district property taxes with alternative, statewide funding sources.The proposal would: • Raise the state sales tax from 6 percent to 7 percent. • Raise the personal income tax from 3.07 percent to 4.34 percent. • Close some special interest loopholes in the sales and use tax. Together with some existing gaming revenues, these dollars would be enough to fully replace school district property taxes, some of the key cosponsors argue. The lawmakers say they know the plan will work because they based the calculations on a thorough analysis that was conducted last session by the Independent Fiscal Office. “That study was the piece of the puzzle that had been missing in the past,” said state Sen. David G. Argall, R-Rush Blake Township. “We always had a general concept of what it would take to replace school district property taxes. The independent analysis gave us the detailed information we needed to ensure the plan will work.” Yudichak agreed the IFO analysis was able to bring additional legislators on board. Lawmakers’ reservations But it isn’t enough to persuade state Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski to sign on. While he supports property tax reform, he said, the way these bills would go about it are not the way to go. Pashinski said he has concerns over what happens if sales or personal income tax collections dip and there’s no reserve to help offset the shortfall promised to school districts. He also has concerns about how the money generated by casinos that are earmarked to property tax reduction would be used. His idea is to cut property taxes in half and use increased sales and personal income taxes to help pay for education. He does agree that having continued public discussion about the issue is a good thing. Among the Democrats not on that list is state Sen. John Blake, D-Archbald. Like Pashinski, Blake has concerns about making such a change without having safety nets in place. “I have concerns about complete reliance on sales and income taxes to fund public education. Future economic recessions could undermine revenue collections and thus erode essential support for public education. I don’t want — nor should anyone want — a decision on such a momentous tax shift to be based on anything but sound fiscal analyses and progressive and fair tax policy principles,” Blake said. As Democratic chair of the Senate Finance Committee, he also has enlisted the IFO for an analysis of the financial impacts of the Senate version of the bill. “I anxiously await the findings of the IFO report, and I will reserve my judgment about cosponsorship of SB 76 until after I’ve reviewed that report and other studies of this proposal,” Blake said.

Sometimes,it’s all about the clothes
said, “and people who have smaller roles have more than one part.” So, the “factory girls” will have practical, sturdy clothing for their factory scene, during which they torment poor Fantine. Then most of them will change into something more along the lines of shabby-chic, old-style evening-wear for the big prostitute scene. “Do you have to raise your arms durSee CLOTHES | 2B

One by one the “factory girls” filed into the costume room where Josephine Siu, better known as “Jo Jo,” was busy working her magic. She’d hand them a dress, a skirt, an apron — whatever she had ready. As she pinned bodices and hems to make the clothing fit, she explained what else was coming. “I’ll be getting you shoes,” she told 16-year-old Michele Fromel from Dallas. “I’ll have a bonnet for you as well,” she told 16-year-old Mary Simmonds of Darestown, Md. “A lot of the girls will have to learn how to lace a corset,” Liu added. “They’ll do it for each other.” The old-fashioned outfits will help the young women re-create an atmosphere of 19th-century France when audiences attend the Performing Arts Institute of Wyoming Seminary’s production of “Les Miserables,” set for Wednesday and Thursday at the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts in Wilkes-Barre. For Siu, they’re just a handful of the many costumes — more than 200 separate pieces in all — that she’s preparing for a wardrobe-heavy show. “Every one of the main characters has at least three costume changes,” she

During their first year out of high school, many 18-year-olds sign up for basic biology, psychology and Speech 101. Anna Malsky from West Pittston signed up for Fiji, Australia and New Zealand instead. These aren’t courses ABOUT the foreign countries, but real volunteer experiences she’ll have as a participant in Global Gap, a program designed to help young people spend a year Malsky between high school and college learning about global issues and immersing themselves in other cultures. For someone who wasn’t certain what she would have studied if she immediately enrolled in higher education, Malsky said, the program sounds perfect. “I always told my parents I wanted to travel,” said Malsky, 18, the youngest of Gina and Leo Malsky’s three children, who recently graduated from Wyoming Area High School. “I think it’s going to be an adventure.” Information she gleaned from past participants’ blogs makes her suspect she’ll find herself shearing sheep in New Zealand or performing other farm tasks. “A lot of it is agricultural,” she said. Testimony from past participants includes comments that their months abroad left them feeling more mature and capable of facing all sorts of challenges. “If I can survive the jungle, if only for three months, I’m not afraid of anything,” wrote one young man who spent time in India.

BOOKSHELF
Virginia history inspires area man’s first novel
CHRISTOPHER J. HUGHES
chughes@timesleader.com

“THE SEA IS A THIEF” Author: Dave Parmelee Publisher: Sunbury Press, Mechanicsburg Available: Borrow a copy from the Osterhout Library, Wilkes-Barre; available online at sunburypressstore.com, amazon. com and barnesandnoble.com, $14.95. After years of family vacations to the island community of Chincoteague, Va., Dave Parmelee, 56, of Shavertown found the inspiration for his first novel. Released on March 19, “The Sea is a Thief” uses the island’s decision to remain loyal to the Union during the Civil War as the backdrop for a romance story. Parmelee said the idea was built in a single car ride with his two daughters on a trip to the vacation destination about five years ago.

“We actually have the little notebook where we wrote down some of the key characters and plot points. I used almost all of them. It’s fun to look back and see how that started,” he recalled. The book, though set in Chincoteague, Va., has a strong connection to Pennsylvania. The hero hails from Port Clinton, Parmelee said. Along with a recent reading at the Osterhout Library in Wilkes-Barre in support of the book, Parmelee had a pair of book signings and a reading scheduled this past week in Chincoteague during the island’s annual Pony Penning event. Times Leader: What’s the basic story behind ‘The Sea is a Thief’? Dave Parmelee: “It’s the story of a perilous romance between a young Union sailor who is sent on a gunboat to protect the island of Chincoteague and a young wildlife artist who lives there.” TL: How did you discover the Chincoteague’s historic significance during the Civil War? D.P.: “Our family has vacationed there for many years. … Chincoteague is a lovely little family vacation town. … It’s best

known for the wild ponies in the 1940s children’s book, ‘Misty of Chincoteague.’ The wild ponies roam freely, and they’re protected of course. “One year, we picked up a book on local history, and I found out that during the Civil War, Chincoteague actually voted 198-2 to remain loyal to the Union even though it’s part of Virginia. … The Virginia mainland actually sent a ship to blockade them, so the city fathers appealed to the Union to send another ship, which sank the first ship and sat in the harbor for three months to convince the mainland to leave the island alone. We read the story, and the next time we went to Chincoteague, my daughters (Susanna, now 23, and Andrea, now 18) and I sat in the car and we actually plotted this out. We said, ‘What if one of the sailors on that boat had met one of the local girls?’ The real event was the jumping-off point.” TL: How long did it take to write it? Did you think you were onto something bigger? D.P.: “It took me about 18 months. I would write it in little bits. I travel quite a lot, so I would sit in a hotel room and just

not turn on the television. I haven’t turned on a TV in a hotel room for years. I would just sit at the laptop and write. … When I finished it, I said, ‘I wonder if it’s actually publishable.’ I had no idea, so I sent it to a friend to read it. She really enjoyed it. Then I sent it to a friend who is a freelance editor who works for some of the big publishers in New York. He said, ‘Absolutely, this is publishable.’” TL: Have you ever had anything else published? D.P.: “The first actual published writing I did were columns for the Times Leader. I wrote 110 or so columns every two weeks from 1998 to about 2002. That was a real privilege. That was wonderful. … It was an opinion column that focused on local news from a conservative point of view.” TL: You held a reading at the Osterhout on July 11. How was the book received? D.P.: “It was a new experience for me. I’ve only read from it twice. One was at my daughter’s Advanced Placement English class at Dallas. I read to the English and AP History class. I’m sort of learning how to do it. Public reading is a very different

thing. I felt I had the attention of the audience, and one person said, ‘What happens next?’ If your reader says what happens next, you’ve got them. The Osterhout bought two copies. It’s such a thrill to have it on the shelves of the library where I went to borrow books when I was a little kid.” TL: What’s been rewarding about sharing the book with others? D.P.: “The most enjoyable thing is when someone you know has read it, and they tell you what they like. You start to talk about a character and how they felt about what the character said or what somebody did. Or I left some loose ends and they wonder what happened to somebody. … They walk on that path with you, which you only walk in your imagination.” TL: Any ideas for a second novel? D.P.: “I think I could do it again. I have a very interesting character who is a medicine woman who lives on the island. In the course of the book, she disappears, and we don’t know what happens to her. I could put her in a lot of interesting places in the Reconstruction.”

Time to do some window-shopping at spots that have stood time’s test
When the Posten Taxi Co. of Wilkes-Barre carried its last fare recently, the community lost one of its few remaining businesses that date to the 1800s. In the 19th century the company operated TOM a for-hire livery stable MOONEY on North Main Street. REMEMBER Through WHEN the eras of drays, flivvers, big gas hogs and “green” cars it proudly carried local people on their many errands. Yet some other businesses from those days remain. Here’s my unscientific list. I’ve avoided businesses such as legal firms with ever-changing partners and banks that have been repeatedly bought, sold and merged. I’ve left out the family-owned farms, some of which date from colonial days. This will be an urban “bricksand-mortar” tour only. If I’ve missed any, please let me know. OK, let’s show a timetraveling guest around. If our Victorian visitor grows nervous about all the cars in the streets and decides to buy some insurance, he’ll probably find the Biddle & Eno and J.W. Hoban names familiar. They both go way back into the 1800s. The name “Times Leader” on a downtown building might provide some comfort as well, because the paper’s ancestors – The Times and The Leader – could have found their way to his doorstep. While there’s been a name change and quite a lot of growth, our visitor would surely remember that a fellow named Redington was operating a small hotel on the site of his later one, now known as the Genetti Banquet and Convention Center. Hopefully he wouldn’t need the services of an undertaker, but he ought to recognize the Kniffen and McLaughlin funeral parlors, among the earliest in the area. A trip down to Hanover Township would show him that the Rifkin company, maker of security bags and supplies, is still a fixture of the community. A few more miles and he’d see the Bertels metalware company.

If our gent gets thirsty after all this traveling around, he can sashay into any tavern and order up a nice, frosty Stegmaier . . .
A ride across the river to Kingston would enable him to see that Wyoming Seminary is still operating. If our gent gets thirsty after all this traveling around, he can sashay into any tavern and order up a nice, frosty Stegmaier, though someone would likely tell him that a different brewery now makes it. Finally, inspired by Steg’s logo, he’d probably want to pin gold medals on our next two businesses. They both go way, way back and have continued to provide their original services over incredible periods of time. My great-great-grandparents could have shopped at the downtown’s biggest store – Boscov’s (formerly The Boston Store). It’s stood in the same place, in the same building (though expanded), since Rutherford B. Hayes was in the White House. But even that store must give place to a company that started in downtown Wilkes-Barre when there were just 29 states in the union and Abe Lincoln was a confused freshman in Congress. It’s a company that has done the same work all that time, changing its location but not its name. In 1847 a young fellow named Oscar Smith opened a cleaning emporium on South Fell Street (later known as South State Street). One level of his four-floor operation was devoted entirely to cleaning carpets that people would roll up and bring in. By the early 20th century he had a wagon-mounted carpet cleaning machine that could be driven to people’s homes. Today the company is based in Swoyersville. Well, there you have it. Maybe you didn’t find any cents-off coupons to redeem or any sale prices to take advantage of, but one thing is still clear: Shopping for history is fun.

Anna Malsky is going to spend a year doing charity work around the world as part of a program called Global Gap.

GLOBAL
From page 1B from helping to build a road to tending organic crops, she expects there will be time for backpacking excursions, hiking, scuba diving and bungee jumping. The program, which begins in September with orientation in Oregon, allows her to earn college credits through Portland State University, but the most important part will be what she learns, Malsky said. She’s putting her graduation money toward her plane fare

“I think it’s going to be a big reality check to see how people live (in other parts of the world). We might stay in a hut.”
and is looking forward to sampling new cultures. “We’re so proud of her,” mom Gina Malsky said, predicting her daughter will return with a greater sense of self-knowledge and a wealth of experiences. “I think it’s going to be a big reality check to see how people live

— Anna Malsky

(in other parts of the world),” Anna Malsky said. “We might stay in a hut.” Speaking of rough conditions, she knows she won’t have 24/7 access to a cell phone or wi fi. She says that’s OK. “I don’t go crazy if I don’t have my phone,” she said with a grin.

CLOTHES
From page 1B ing that song?” Siu asked one of the girls, gauging whether the sleeves had to be altered. Most of the outfits DO have to be altered, Siu said. “There was one girl who came in earlier and everything fit perfectly,” she said, noting that’s a rarity. Siu is tasked with getting scores of costumes ready for the show, which is a challenge because of the musical’s setting. For last year’s Performing Arts Institute production of “West Side Story,” she said, it was possible to just go shopping and find modern clothing that looked appropriate for 1950s New York. It’s not that easy to find historically accurate clothes that represent early-19th-century France, though some have been borrowed from the Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble and other troupes. So Siu sews away, by hand and with a machine, creating rough clothes for factory workers and fine clothes for the aristocratic scenes, such as Cosette’s wedding to Marius. “This is Cosette’s dress,” she said, pointing to a partially made gown of pink and white satin. The costumes help tell the story, Siu said, explaining how protagonist Jean Valjean’s clothing goes from dark to light as he works his way from convict to generous benefactor. Meanwhile, the clothing of his nemesis, Javert, becomes progressively darker and darker, culminating with his suicide. Siu, who lives in King of Prussia, once wanted to become a concert pianist. Then she discovered her flair for design and considered fashion design before deciding theatrical costumes were more fun. “I like doing historical research,” she said. “And I enjoy collaborating with other artists.”

Musicians play trombones as a tourist from Colombia takes their picture along the Malecon in Havana, Cuba. For a place where most people earn just $20 a month at their government jobs, Havana can be a surprisingly expensive place to be a traveler. But there are plenty of free ways to have fun in this city known for sea, sun and salsa.

NEW YORK — A U.S.-based tour company has announced the launch of new people-to-people trips to Cuba that would transport U.S. citizens there by ship. Road Scholar, a Boston-based company, is offering the trips from Jamaica and Miami, with stops in Havana and other parts of Cuba. Most travel by U.S. citizens to Cuba is outlawed, but tens of thousands of Americans now visit the island legally each year on peopleto-people tours, which are licensed by the U.S. Treasury Department. People-to-people trips must have educational and cultural-exchange itineraries to be approved by the U.S. government. Typically people-to-people tours fly from U.S. airports to Havana on chartered planes. But Road Scholar’s director of international programs, Yves Marceau, said in a phone interview that “there’s nothing in the regulations or guidelines” that preclude traveling by ship on a people-topeople tour. The U.S. Treasury Department confirmed in an email that transportation “whether by bus, boat or taxi” in Cuba is permitted as part of the people-to-people programs as long as it does not detract from a “full-time schedule of educational activities that will result in mean-

ingful interaction between the travelers and individuals in Cuba.” Marceau said Road Scholar had “designed all the port programs to be consistent” with those regulations, including a visit to an agricultural cooperative and meetings with artists.
The Road Scholar trips are among several seaborne voyages planned by U.S.-based entities to Cuba.

This fall, Semester at Sea plans its first stop in Cuba since 2004, according to Semester at Sea spokesman Andrew Centofante. Semester at Sea allows college students to earn credit on multicountry study abroad programs that take place on a ship,. Centofante said the Cuba stop was approved by the U.S. government as part of an itinerary in which students will visit various ports around the Atlantic. The Metropolitan Museum of Art had advertised a people-to-people cruise from Jamaica to Havana this past April, but it did not take place. A spokesman for Academic Arrangements Abroad, which was organizing the museum trip, did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but it’s not unusual for tours sponsored by museums or universities to be cancelled if they don’t get enough participants. The Road Scholar trip will use a cruise ship operated by a Canadian company, with Canadians and

Europeans making up most of the other 1,000 passengers on the ship, Marceau said. The Road Scholar group has room for 24 participants and will adhere to its own itinerary in Cuban ports. One of the Road Scholar tours is an 11-night trip beginning in Montego Bay, Jamaica, which heads to Punta Frances, which is on a small Cuban island south of Havana called Isla de la Juventud, and concludes with five nights in Havana. A second 10-night trip starts in Miami, then heads to Cuba, with stops including rural areas and the western part of the country, and a final stop in Montego Bay. The third Road Scholar voyage runs 12 nights from Miami to Havana before traveling around the island and returning to Havana. The Road Scholar seaborne trips to Cuba have departure dates in December through March 2014. The people-to-people cultural exchange licenses were reinstituted by the Obama administration in 2011, after being halted by the Bush administration. But requirements were tightened last year after criticism that many of the trips were masking recreational tourism to the Communist island. Cuban-American Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida criticized the government for approving licenses for groups that included activities such as salsa dancing.

Dallas Rotary donates wound kits to area police officers
The Dallas Rotary Club recently donated 30 individual patrol officer kits with combat gauze, which are designed to provide personnel with a compact and durable individual hemorrhage control kit to treat bleeding from penetrating wounds and other traumatic injuries which law enforcement officers may incur in the line of duty.

NEW YORK TIMES CROSSWORD PUZZLE

HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Many are sharing. You won’t agree with it all, and you’re in just the mood to speak up, too. Don’t give an interesting opinion; give an opinion in an interesting way. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Don’t just exceed expectations; explode them. Your unique twist will make all the difference. Give what’s unexpected, and you’ll create more than results; you’ll create memories. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Slow down and build rapport with the people around you. True, you don’t have any time to waste. However, stopping to talk won’t be a waste at all. A shared moment will enrich the passage of time. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The feelings exchanged in an interaction are more important than any other thing being exchanged. Place the utmost consideration on the tone and mood of your interactions, and the rest will work itself out in the next three days. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). This simple truth will be represented in today’s events: The friendlier and easier to get along with a person is, the more likely it is that this person will be attractive to others and chosen as a friend or sweetheart. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will give your love and support, and that is better than gold. Anyone who thinks gold would be better is too young or emotionally undeveloped to be blamed for his or her wrongheadedness. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll notice that certain friends want you to themselves and are quite upset when you show favoritism or even just attention to others. This is an immature response, and yet it has real repercussions and must be dealt with carefully. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Are Facebook invitations as good as paper invitations? Is it enough to send a “thank you” via text? Just know that you will be judged for the way you answer such technological etiquette questions. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Usually you are highly motivated, but even when you’re not, you’ll push on through. That’s what sets you apart from the people who don’t succeed nearly as well. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). What a partner sometimes fails to understand is that you don’t always want your problem solved immediately. You want to be listened to and understood. And if this leads to solutions, you’ve won on all counts. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may feel like making an extra effort to bring a certain person into your world. Be careful not to set an expectation you won’t want to continue, though. Stick with people who like you for you, not for what you do. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Tis the good reader who makes the good book.” Similarly, what happens today occurs because of the mental energy you bring to your surroundings and the people in them. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 28). Your popularity has perks in August. Environmental changes will balance relationships, and formerly feuding loved ones find a mutually pleasing manner of coexistence. In September, be professionally strategic. Use the resources around you to escape, surprise or conquer the opponent (and/or your own fear). Cancer and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 39, 5, 44 and 15.

DEAR ABBY
ADVICE

Wedding gift was ordered but never delivered
Dear Abby: My daughter was married recently and has been sending out her thank-you notes. When she checked her registry to determine if all her gifts had been accounted for, she saw that her stepbrother and his wife purchased a gift, but it was not mailed by the department store. We’re assuming that it was brought to the wedding, but it’s nowhere to be found. How can we resolve this delicate situation? She wants to tell her sister-in-law, but she is concerned it might have been an oversight and be embarrassing. She plans to contact the wedding venue, but it has been three weeks and you’d think if something had been left behind that they would have contacted her. We are also going to check with the friends who packed up the cars. Any other ideas? — Steve in Florida Dear Steve: Because your daughter knows a gift was purchased by her stepbrother and his wife, she should ask them how it was to be delivered because it might have been lost en route. Such things have been known to happen, which is why it is always wise to request that a merchant provide proof of delivery. That way the recipient signs for the package, and everyone is assured it didn’t “fall off the truck.” I doubt the stepbrother and his wife, having gone to the expense of buying something, would have forgotten to give it to your daughter. I also doubt the couple who packed up the gifts would have overlooked one. As to the venue where the wedding was held, one would think that if a package had been left behind they would contact the family that rented the place, if only to protect their reputation. Dear Abby: We recently moved to another neighborhood. Most of the residents are elderly. Our closest neighbors are a very nice couple in their 70s. We’ve gotten along well, but a problem has arisen and I’m not sure how to handle it. I am a keen do-it-yourself enthusiast. When I get home from work at 2 p.m., I love to go into my workshop and work on one of the many projects I always have going. I’ll do this for a couple of hours until my wife and kids get home. I admit, it probably gets a bit noisy with all the power tools, hammers, etc., and I usually leave the door open to let some air in. My neighbor approached me today and told me his wife usually naps from 2 to 4 every afternoon, and the noise I make is disturbing her. Until he told me that, I had no idea their downstairs bedroom is only a few feet from our communal fence. (My workshop is right up against the fence.) Would it be rude to suggest she find another time to nap or maybe sleep in another room? I can’t imagine having to sit around and waste time every afternoon waiting for her to finish her nap, especially since she has most of the day to nap while I’m at work. This doesn’t seem fair to me. My wife thinks I’m being a bit hard, so we agreed to accept your opinion on this. — DIY Guy Dear DIY Guy: I’m pretty sure your neighbor’s wife takes her naps at the time of day when she needs one, and she would be unable to adjust her sleep schedule to accommodate you. However, your idea of suggesting she try sleeping in another part of the house so she won’t be disturbed is a good one. Or you might agree to a compromise so she starts her mid-day rest period a little earlier, and you start your projects a little later. That way you would both get what you need.

Romo, starters may sit for Hall of Fame Game
SCHUYLER DIXON

OXNARD, Calif. — Jason Garrett was a little bewildered by getting grilled a week early over whether Tony Romo would play in the Dallas Cowboys’ preseason opener. The Dallas coach dodged questions on the topic Saturday, a day after the team’s flagship

Donovan gives US a spark

radio station quoted Garrett as saying the Hall of Fame game against Miami next Sunday was “not going to be Tony’s game.” Pressed several times by reporters, about all Garrett would say was the coaching staff hadn’t decided the playing rotation. “I don’t want to get into the hypotheticals,” Garrett said flatly when asked about the

comments to the radio station. “We’ll talk about how each of our 90 players will or will not play in those games next week.” The Cowboys have an extra preseason game, and Garrett suggested to the radio station that the starters were more likely to debut in the second game against Oakland.

NASCAR celebrates 20th Cup race at Indy

CHICAGO — Burned out and exhausted from more than a decade as the standard bearer for U.S. soccer, Landon Donovan needed a break. For four months last winter, soccer was the last concern for the Americans’ career scoring leader. He spent time Donovan with family and friends, making up for all those holidays and get-togethers he missed over the years. He traveled to far-flung places, reveling in his respite from the harsh glare of the spotlight. And somewhere along the way, he rediscovered his love for the game he’d been so desperate to escape. The rejuvenated Donovan is a big reason the Americans are in the CONCACAF Gold Cup final today, where they’ll face Panama. He has five goals in five games, tied for a tournament high, and seven assists. Those 12 goals are one more than Panama’s entire team has scored; the Americans lead the tournament with a total of 19 goals. See SPARK | 8C

INDIANAPOLIS — Traditionalists balked and some were downright outraged at the mere suggestion stock cars dare set their fenders on the sacred ground of Indianapolis. Stage a NASCAR race at the home of the Indianapolis 500? May as well make Indy 500 winners swig orange juice in Victory Lane or have the track install lights for a night race. Heck, make it the Indianapolis 350. None of it could have been worse than big, bad NASCAR storming into their city — an open wheel city. “I think Indy cars belong at Indy and stock cars belong at Daytona,” 1986 Indy winner Bobby Rahal said more than 20 years ago. “I think it’s a big mistake because Indy has all that tradition and romance and I don’t believe it should be tampered with,” said Johnny Rutherford, also a former Indianapolis 500 champion. Romance? What is this, a love story? Well, sort of. It’s time to pucker up and kiss the bricks once again when NASCAR runs its 20th Cup race today at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon are as much a slice of Indy racing history as A.J. Foyt and Rick Mears. There’s a generation of drivers coming up who

Sprint Cup Series driver Jeff Gordon climbs into his car during practice for the Brickyard 400 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis on Saturday. Gordon won the initial NASCAR race at Indy in 1994.

dreamed of racing at Indianapolis for 400 miles, not 500. The Brickyard may not be the marquee race to win on NASCAR’s schedule. Rahal was on to something, the Daytona 500 is still No. 1. But Indy is a close runner up. “You have the Daytona 500 and then the Brickyard 400,” Gordon, a four-time Indy winner, said. “Some people may rank it different than that, but that’s how I look at it. There was a time, maybe

back in 1994, where I would have ranked this No. 1.” Then the next big thing in NASCAR, a 23-year-old Gordon won the inaugural race in 1994. An estimated crowd of 250,000 fans absolutely jammed the place and Gordon recalled the die-hards lined up 10 deep around the garage just to get a peek at the drivers that would soon usher NASCAR into a boom period. NASCAR hadn’t just raced at Indy — it took it over. Dale Earnhardt won in 1995

and then Dale Jarrett started a celebration with his 1996 win that lasts to this day, and even carried over to Indy. Jarrett and crew chief Todd Parrott knelt down and planted a big ol’ kiss on the bricks, the startfinish line for the race. Who needs milk? Tony Stewart, a former open wheel champion, never got to fulfill his boyhood dream of winning an Indianapolis 500. But the Indiana native has twice See INDY | 8C

Not a very happy birthday for A-Rod
As third baseman turns 38, controversy swirls around his career
RONALD BLUM
AP Sports Writer

After a week’s worth of high drama, secondguessing and radio interviews, it seems Alex Rodriguez is about to be lumped with Yankees who sort of just didn’t fit, failed or just faded away — the Dave Winfield, Kevin Brown, Randy Johnson and Carl Pavano wing of infamy rather than the Monument Park honor roll of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio and Yogi Berra.

AP photo

NEW YORK — Alex Rodriguez’s corner locker in the New York Yankees’ clubhouse is filled with four cardboard boxes of bats, a dozen jerseys, a dangling athletic supporter, two baseball caps and four books. Rodriguez, who turned 38 Saturday, is something of a cornered man himself these days. The Yankees consider him a major annoyance, referring to him as Mr. Rodriguez three times in a recent news release. That tension, however, pales when compared to what’s going on with Major League Baseball. Any time now, Rodriguez is expected to be hit with a lengthy penalty that could put him out of baseball indefinitely or perhaps even permanently. And MLB’s investigation to possible

ties between Rodriguez and a Florida clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs isn’t even the primary source of the deteriorating relationship. The Yankees owe him just under $95 million through 2017, and he’s missed the entire season following hip surgery in January. After a week’s worth of high drama, second-guessing and radio interviews, it seems Rodriguez is about to be lumped with Yankees who sort of just didn’t fit, failed or just faded away — the Dave Winfield, Kevin Brown, Randy Johnson and Carl Pavano wing of infamy rather than the Monument Park honor roll of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio and Yogi Berra. On the day he arrived in February 2004 after the big trade with Texas, the sign board outside old Yankee Stadium proclaimed: “A Rod, Welcome to NY.” Now the message from the Yankees is pretty much: We don’t want to see

you ever again. During a conference call with management to discuss treatment of his thigh injury, A-Rod insisted on having one of his lawyers on the phone, later saying he “just want to make sure that everything is documented properly.” Following his third straight postseason flameout, New York appears to be in no hurry for A-Rod to return. Each day’s delay means that much more of his $153,005 daily salary is reimbursed by insurance. For much of his career, Rodriguez has bristled at playing a supporting role to Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, wondering why his teammate receives adulation and he is met with a mixture of antipathy and scorn. Jeter strained a quadriceps and was allowed to rehabilitate with the major league team. See A-ROD | 8C

The woman wearing the Ryan Fraud jersey was only telling the truth when the Milwaukee Brewers threatened to toss her out of the ballpark the other day for exercising her freedom of expression. Imagine what they would have done if there was enough room to Tim add more words Dahlberg to the back of the jersey. Liar AP Sports and cheat are Columnist two that certainly fit well for the exiled left fielder, who went from beloved superstar to baseball pariah in less time than it takes to mail off a decent urine sample. Fans weren’t alone in expressing their disgust about Braun, if only because his earlier self-righteous claims that he was clean were so fresh in their ears. For the first time, players turned on one of their own, calling Braun out in a way they never did for players busted for steroids in the past. It’s taken years, but the clubhouse code of silence has been cracked, if only a little. Players who are clean seem to finally be realizing that both their careers and their fat wallets are threatened by cheaters who post numbers and do things that they have no hope of matching. Players like Skip Schumaker, the utility player for the Los Angeles Dodgers who has hit only 24 home runs in his nine year big league career. Schumaker believed Braun’s denials, bought into his story about the bumbling messenger who couldn’t get to the FedEx office on time. He even had a signed Braun jersey in his trophy room. Now he, like many other players, has had enough. “In my opinion, he should be suspended, lifetime ban. One strike you’re out,” Schumaker said. “It’s enough. It’s ridiculous.” One strike and you’re out. Kind of has a nice ring to it, even in a sport where three strikes are what really matter. Unfortunately, it has no chance of happening. While players are beginning to talk tough, the odds of that translating into any movement toward lifetime bans on the part of the players’ union are about as good as the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series. Players had to be dragged kicking and screaming into testing to begin with, and they’re not going to agree to increased penalties without a fight. It’s the owners, though, who share just as much blame for the mess baseball finds itself in. They’ve looked the other way for more than two decades now, content to allow the use of performanceenhancing drugs in the game as long as the big home run hitters were helping them sell tickets and build new stadiums. And they keep giving millions to guys who have been caught cheating. See DAHLBERG | 8C

ON THE MARK

Yesterday Sunfire Blue Chip, the main challenger in the upcoming Battle Of Brandywine (at Pocono Downs) to multiple stakes winner and current harness racing superstar Captain Treacherous, made a statement with a dominating win in the $450,000 Adios Final at the Meadows. The Jimmy Takter trainee quarter-poled early and won rather easily from there; besting a hard charging Vegas Vacation to the line in a very good 1:48.3. Word Power, who stayed last throughout the mile, weaved his way through traffic to garner the show spot. It sure is going to be exciting in just a few short weeks when the Captain and Sunfire knock heads once again!

CRAIN GAME
Our weekly look at the work of RailRiders president Rob Crain, who has given us back our baseball — with a side order of promotions and entertainment. BEST OF THE WEEK: If you like hitting the movie theater for the latest super hero flick, Thursday was for you. It was super hero night at the park and even the staff got into the fun with an array of costumes. And it was Thirsty Thursday, offering a chance to save a few bucks while conquering a villianous need for a beverage. MISSED OPPORTUNITY: Even the greatest of super heroes needs a break at some point, but those heroes who came to the game Thursday night didn’t get one … until Friday. Super Hero Night became Super Hero Morning around the 19th inning, as the RailRiders played the longest game in their history in a 2-1 win over the Toledo Mud Hens. With 20 hits and 18 left on base, the RailRiders spent most of the night looking for an on-field hero before Randy Ruiz led off the bottom of the 20th inning with a home run. Fans took in a near IL tripleheader all in one sitting, as doubleheaders only go 14 innings. Those who stayed were rewarded with … more baseball. Those who witnessed Ruiz’s blast got a free ticket to a future game (no guarantee on them playing 20 again). Items fans needed at that moment ahead of nine more innings: pillows, blankets, night lights, sleeping cap, PJs, slippers, etc. Maybe a local hotel will step up with free rooms for those who stayed. There had to be some happy yet very tired fans there. COMING UP: The RailRiders are back home Saturday for their only game at PNC Field this week. When Lehigh Valley comes to town, the first 2,500 fans will get aluminum water bottles. So be sure to get to the park early.

No Yankees fans or personnel in the organization wanted to trade Jesus Montero. The catcher was ranked the organization’s top prospect by several outlets for many years. But a deal came along early in 2012 that the team couldn’t pass up when at the time 22-year-old right-hander Michael Pineda became available. Today, New York seems to have got the best of that deal as Pineda is currently refining his skills with the S cranton/Wilkes-B arre RailRiders and Montero is sitting out with an injury after being demoted from Seattle to Triple-A Tacoma. Organizations were salivating over Pineda because of the incredible 2011 season he had for the Mariners. He made a grand entrance onto the Major League scene winning four of his first five decisions with the Mariners in April of that year en route to winning the American League Rookie of the Month and earning a spot on the A.L. All-Star Team. “He was dominant. I remember facing him and Felix (Hernandez). That wasn’t a lot of fun for me,” said Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez. “He was throwing 96-97 and I think he hit 100 a couple times that night in Seattle. He’s a very special talent for the Yankees.” Sure his superb April helped him gain recognition, but during his best games in Seattle, Pineda, now 24, was throwing his fastball with high velocity late in games. He could be clocked as high 98 MPH in the sixth or seventh inning. Returning from a shoulder injury that cost him all of the 2012 season, the velocity isn’t all the back yet. The highest he’s reached has been 96.

But he doesn’t need that right now because he’s been getting out batters on his devastating slider. In a start on July 18, he struck out eight, all were swinging on sliders. “That’s my baby. I’ve always had a good slider,” said Pineda, who was ranked as the No. 13 prospect by MLB.com entering the 2011 season. “The thing is when I keep my left shoulder closed my slider is better, that’s where I want to be.” Pineda, who was originally signed out of the Dominican Republic by the Mariners in December of 2005, has said many times that he’s missed playing the game because of the shoulder injury. He was shut down at the end of spring training in 2012 after being hit with an anterior labral tear in his pitching shoulder. He had surgery for that on May 1 and saw his first action coming back from that on

June 9 with High-A Tampa. “It’s hard (getting back into form) because I have almost two years of working hard everyday, everyday,” he said. “Because I need work in for my shoulder and everything is good.” He appears to be getting back into form. In three of his four starts with the RailRiders, he has allowed two runs or less and currently has a 4.15 ERA with the team. He’s also been racking up strikeouts with 23 in 17 1-3 innings. That’s reminiscent of his 2011 form when he whiffed 173 in 171 frames with the Mariners, which included a career-high 10 against Tampa Bay in July of that year and five in five innings against the Yankees earlier in the campaign. He recently started a game with Rodriguez in the same lineup and the successful slugger praised the 6-foot7, 260-pound Pineda. “Let me tell you some-

thing about Mike: he’s one of the strongest and fastest pitchers in the whole organization from Rookie ball to the big leagues,” A-Rod said. “And it’s hard to believe because he’s such a big man. If there was a combine like football he would be really high in the grade. You can’t believe how fast this guys is. He’s as fast as anybody. And in the weight room he’s just a monster. “It’s going to take time for him, especially being a power pitcher. But I see him next year pitching 94-98 getting back to that velocity. I think this year he’s going to be a factor at some point.” While in Seattle, Pineda played with stars like Ichiro Suzuki and Felix Hernandez – who may someday end up in the Hall of Fame. In two of his four starts with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, he played alongside Rodriguez and Derek Jeter. His first rehab start came in Jeter’s first rehab game with the RailRiders and he was in awe. “When they made the trade I was thinking ‘wow I want to pitch in the same game this guy is at shortstop,’” Pineda said. Pineda’s last outing Came on July 23 when he only lasted three innings and Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was reported as saying it was due to “innings management.” That has riled up speculation that Pineda could be used in New York’s bullpen at some time this season in an attempt to save his arm and shoulder for more workload as a starter next season. “I don’t know. I don’t have any control over the situation,” Pineda said about possible being put in a relief role. “All I can do is be ready for pitching every five days.” And if he keeps throwing the way he has recently, that time could be soon.

THE WEEK AHEAD
The next seven days are huge for the RailRiders, with games against teams with winning records. If Scranton/Wilkes-Barre is going to make a run at the playoffs, it will have to get consistent this week. And if it does make the postseason, the next eight games will be an indicator of how the team would represent. Louisville Bats The week starts with the RailRiders seeing the Triple-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds. Today, the teams meet for the seventh time this season. The season series concludes Monday night in Louisville. In the five games of the season series prior to Saturday, Louisville won three. Bats speedster Billy Hamilton, who stole a Minor League Baseball record 155 bases last season, has shown he is a game-changer against the RailRiders. The two-time Futures Game participant has stolen 59 bases this season, including five against SWB. Those came in four games because the top prospect in the organization didn’t play in the first game after the All-Star break. The Bats also have slugger Mike Hessman on the squad. Hessman,the active career leader in all of the minors with 400 professional home runs, has 380 bombs in the minor leagues, 14 in the Major Leagues and six in Japan. Indianapolis Indians The top affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates started the weekend with the second-best record in the International League and a huge lead in the West Division, up 10 games on second-place Louisville. The Indians have reached that point with a patient offense and strong pitching. They lead the league in walks, drawing 442 entering the weekend, and in stolen bases, swiping 122 — nearly 20 more than any other team.They also lead the I.L. in team ERA with a mark of 3.39.That’s bad news for a RailRiders offense that has scored in just seven of their last 65 innings prior to Friday, including just two runs or less in 10 of their last 13 contests. When the teams met earlier this season at PNC Field, the Indians took three of four, holding SWB to just four total runs. Indianapolis has a familiar face on the squad in Hazleton native Russ Canzler, who was acquired from Baltimore earlier this month after being designated for assignment. Since being acquired by Pittsburgh, he has struggled with Indianapolis. The 27-year-old was starting to heat up for the Tides prior to getting DFA’d, getting his average up to .276 with 11 homers. He began the weekend playing in nine games for the Indians, hitting just .219 (7 for 32) with three RBI. He’s usually a player with a high on-base percentage, never finishing a full season with a mark under .315. So far for Indianapolis, his OBP is an uncharacteristic .257. Maybe seeing his hometown team will be a good thing. This season against Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre, while playing for Norfolk in eight games, he hit .364 (12 for 33) with two home runs, six RBI and five runs. Lehigh Valley IronPigs The RailRiders see the IronPigs just once this week with a game at PNC Field on Saturday night in the first of a two-game series. It will be the seventh meeting of the season between the teams.They have split the previous six games, with the IronPigs winning three of four in Allentown and the RailRiders taking both games at PNC Field when Derek Jeter was playing in Moosic on a rehab assignment. Lehigh Valley began the week directly ahead of the RailRiders in the I.L. North standings. So if the RailRiders are going to make up ground in the division, this is a big opportunity.

Marathon games seem to follow around the Toledo Mud Hens. For the second straight season, the Triple-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers could end up being part of the lengthiest game in the International League. That’s because on Thursday, Toledo arrived at PNC Field for a 7:05 p.m. game and didn’t leave the ballpark until early Friday morning as the teams played for 20 innings and 5 hours, 26 minutes in a 2-1 victory for the RailRiders that was capped off in the bottom of the frame when slugger Randy Ruiz launched a walk-off home run on the first pitch of the inning at 12:33 a.m. Sure that was the long, but the Mud Hens were part of a longer game time wise last season. On Aug. 5 last season, Toledo went 19 innings in a 10-9 loss to Rochester at home; that game took 6:32 to complete. When comparing the two games there are some astronomical stats and major differences, besides the number of runs scored. The RailRiders and Mud Hens combined for 29 hits on Thursday/Friday and collectively went just 4 for 27 with runners in scoring position for a .148 batting average. The teams also left a total of 32 runners on base paced by SWB’s 18. In last year’s game, Rochester piled up 25 hits on its own and the two combined for a staggering 43 hits. Toledo had problems hitting in that game as well going just 3 for 17 with runners in scoring position

and leaving 20 runners on base. The Red Wings meanwhile, were 9 for 17 in the stat and only left 14 men on the basepaths. Danny Dorn was the only position player to see action in both games. Last year, he played first base for the Mud Hens and was 2 for 9 at the plate. Last week, he played all 20 inning in right field and ended the game 3 for 7 with his team’s only RBI and a walk. Toledo reliever Matt Hoffman was the only pitcher to see action in both games. He tossed two scoreless innings last week, while in the 2012 contest he was charged with allowing the tying run in the eighth inning to eventually force the extra session. Some other tidbits from the marathon: •Current RailRiders starter Chris Bootcheck pitched 1-3 of an inning in the eighth inning for Toledo allowing a pair of hits in last year’s game. •The 5:26 game marked the longest time for a tilt in SWB franchise history, besting the previous time of a 5:13, 19-inning game the Red Barons played in the 2001 playoffs against Buffalo. •The next game the Barons played after that marathon was the first game of the Governors’ Cup Championship against Louisville, which was managed by current SWB skipper Dave Miley. The RailRiders are playing Louisville this weekend. •The International League has the honor of being the league in which the longest professional game in history was played. That was more than 32 years ago when the Pawtucket Red Sox and Rochester Red Wings went 33 innings before

the PawSox won 3-2 on June 23, 1981.
Smith keeps going

For some reason Greg Smith can’t seem to find a team that wants to hold onto him. As a 29-year-old and a left-hander Smith should be able to keep a job with some organization – especially with the numbers he’s putting up this season for Lehigh Valley. Smith, who pitched for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees in 2011 and posted a 3-3 mark with a 4.84 ERA, has been phenomenal for the IronPigs this season with a 5-1 record, an ERA of 1.93 and has only allowed 43 hits and nine walks in 51 1-3 innings for LV and was named the International League Pitcher of the Week for the week of July 15-22 after going eight shutout innings in a victory over Columbus. Smith was in the Blue Jays organization signing a minor league deal with the club in December 2012. But that didn’t last long and he was soon pitching independently for the Grand Prairie AirHogs before signing with the Phillies in May. He started off with Double-A Reading before shortly getting promoted to Double-A. He’s now with his eighth MLB organization in the last eight years. Originally drafted by the Diamondbacks in 2005, he was traded to Oakland in 2007 and was on the move again the next year going to Colorado. He signed with the Yankees in 2011 before getting released and picked up by the Red Sox. He was with the Los Angeles Angels Triple-A team in 2012.

FRIDAY’S LATE BOXES

This Date In Baseball
July 28 1931 — Bob Fothergill of Chicago hit a home run and a triple in an 11-run eighth inning. The White Sox set an American League record by recording 12 hits in the inning and beat the New York Yankees 14-12. 1940 — King Kong Keller hit three homers to give the New York Yankees a 10-9 win over Chicago in the first game of a doubleheader split. 1951 — Clyde Vollmer of Boston hit a grand slam in the 16th inning, the latest ever hit in a major league game. The Red Sox beat the Cleveland Indians, 8-4, in 16. 1958 — For the sixth time in his career, Mickey Mantle hit home runs from both sides of the plate. New York beat the Athletics 14-7. 1971 — Sixteen-time Gold Glove winner Brooks Robinson committed three errors in the sixth inning against the Oakland A’s. Frank Robinson’s three-run homer in the ninth won the game for the Orioles. 1976 — John Odom (five innings) and Francisco Barrios (four innings) combined on a no-hitter as the Chicago White Sox beat Oakland 2-1. 1979 — Dave Kingman of the Chicago Cubs hit three home runs in a game for the second time in the season and became the sixth player in major league history to accomplish the feat. Kingman’s homers weren’t enough as the Cubs lost to the New York Mets 6-4. 1983 — AL president Lee McPhail ruled that George Brett’s “pine tar” home run against New York on July 24 should count. The umpires had disallowed the homer because the pine tar on Brett’s bat exceeded the 18-inch limit.

NATIONAL LEAGUE ROUNDUP

WASHINGTON — Bryce Harper, Ian Desmond and Denard Span all homered, powering the Washington Nationals to a 4-1 win over the New York Mets on Saturday. Dan Haren (5-11) pitched seven innings for his first win since May 9, allowing one run and three hits. Desmond and Span hit backto-back homers against Dillon Gee (7-8) in the second inning and Harper followed with a two-run drive in the third. Despite a tumultuous week, which included the Nationals firing their hitting coach and demoting former closer Drew Storen to the minors, Washington has won three of four games after dropping six straight following the All-Star break. Braves 2, Cardinals 0 ATLANTA — Andrelton Simmons hit a two-run double

Randy Choate (1-1) walked Freddie Freeman to open the eighth. Evan Gattis struck out and Brian McCann singled. Rosenthal relieved and struck out Dan Uggla before walking Chris Johnson to load the bases. Luis Avilan (3-0) pitched a perfect eighth and Craig Kimbrel recorded three outs to earn his 30th save. Cardinals starter Joe Kelly pitched 6 1-3 scoreless innings.

Newman knocks Johnson off of Brickyard pole
JENNA FRYER
AP Auto Racing Writer

Kyle Busch wins Nationwide race at Indy
AP Sports Writer

INDIANAPOLIS — The Rocket Man got his fuel back. Finally. Ryan Newman snatched the pole away from Jimmie Johnson with a blistering lap of 187.531 mph around Indianapolis Motor Speedway to set a track record for NASCAR races at the Brickyard. Newman was the last of the 45 drivers to make a qualifying attempt Saturday as Johnson’s No. 48 was atop the scoring tower for well over an hour with a lap of 187.438. Driver after driver had failed to knock Johnson from the pole, and the fourtime Brickyard winner watched and waited to see if Newman could get the job done. Newman, an Indiana native, pulled it off as Johnson smiled his approval. “You can’t count Ryan out, and he put up a whale of a lap,” Johnson said.

It’s the 50th pole for Newman, who established himself as an elite qualifier with six poles his rookie season. He set a NASCAR record with 11 poles in 2003, and won at least one pole a year for 11 seasons. But he’d been in a drought of late, and Newman’s last pole was late in the 2011 season. Now he’s got another one, and the 50th of his career is good enough for ninth on the career list, and it comes at a critical time for Newman. Team co-owner Tony Stewart told Newman he’s not being re-signed for next season two weeks ago, and Newman is currently looking for a job for 2014. “I guess it helps, but I don’t know if my phone will be ringing tonight. Maybe, hopefully, Monday morning,” said Newman, a normally stoic driver who admitted he grew emotional on the backstretch of his cool-down lap. Carl Edwards qualified third at 187.157, and was already seated for the post-qualifying news conference when he watched on television

as Newman knocked Johnson and Edwards down a notch. “I felt really good — second is the worst,” Edwards said about qualifying third. “It’s the worst to qualify second, and nobody wants anybody to go through what Jimmie just had to go through. We all don’t feel too bad for Jimmie, but that was pretty dramatic. I didn’t really expect that.” Johnson, who today will try to win his fifth Brickyard and tie Formula One’s Michael Schumacher as the winningest driver at Indy, said his lap wasn’t perfect. “I did miss Turn 2 a little bit on my turning point, and felt like I made that mistake,” Johnson said. “But Ryan hit all four corners great and got it done. Happy for him. It’s got to be a big day for him, being a hometown boy and all. Very happy for Ryan and very happy for our team.” Denny Hamlin qualified fourth and was followed by Stewart, a two-time Indy winner, as Stewart-Haas Racing has two cars starting in the top five.

DAN GELSTON

INDIANAPOLIS — Kyle Busch had a commanding lead wiped out with one illtimed caution. He snagged it back just in time to extend his dominant run in the Nationwide Series — and seal his latest win with a kiss. Busch was the newest driver to kiss the bricks, leading 92 of 100 laps Saturday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He turned his baseball cap around, dropped to his hands and knees, and planted a big one on the bricks. How’d they taste? “Like bricks,” he said. Busch even gave the bricks a celebratory slap. Not bad after a late scare off a restart dropped him to third with six laps left and nearly turned Brian Scott into the surprise winner. Busch fell back after some

hard racing with J o e y Logano that almost wiped out his nearf l a w l e s s Busch day. But his No. 54 Toyota was the fastest car all day and he roared back to take the lead with three laps left. He won for the eighth time in 15 races this season. He took his usual bow before he grabbed the checkered flag. Then, off to the bricks. “It’s Indianapolis. It’s pretty awesome to be able to win here, whether you are driving Nationwide or Cup, sports cars, Formula One, MotoGP, anything,” he said. “It’s pretty cool, this place, with the history and all the automobiles that have raced on this surface and the surfaces before it. And all the

fans who have been here over the years, it’s awesome.” Crew chief Adam Stevens became choked up atop the pit box. That’s what winning at Indy can mean, even in the second-tier NASCAR series. It was the wave of emotion Scott wanted to feel. Scott, who has never won a Nationwide race in 128 starts, briefly took the lead and was in position to become the upset winner. He just couldn’t hold

off Busch. Few can in Nationwide. He has a record 59 Nationwide wins in 259 starts. “I should have won here last year but I messed up, I almost messed up again and gave it away,” Busch said. “I was able to persevere there to get it back. Such a great race car.” Busch won from the pole and gave Toyota its first NASCAR win at Indianapolis and second ever at the track.

Snedeker takes Canadian Open lead
The Associated Press

OAKVILLE, Ontario — Brandt Snedeker was on seventh tee when he noticed something wasn’t quite right. He couldn’t find Hunter Mahan’s name at the top of the Canadian Open leaderboard. “I looked at my caddie, and I go, ‘What’s going on?’” Snedeker said. “He goes, ‘I think Hunter had to leave because (his wife) went into labor.’” His caddie was right. Mahan, the secondround leader at 13 under, withdrew Saturday to rush home to Dallas for the birth of his first child Saturday, leaving a big opening for Snedeker. “Kind of left the tournament wide open,” Snedeker said. “Hunter was going to be hard to catch because he was playing so good. The way he drives the golf ball on this golf course, he was going to play really well on the weekend. For me to catch him, I knew I was going to have to shoot something really low.” Snedeker had a 9-under 63 at rainy Glen Abbey to take the lead after the third round. He won the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in February for his fifth PGA Tour victory. “I know how to handle it and I know what to expect tomorrow especially on a golf course like this,” Snedeker said. “I’m not too concerned about my number right now. I know what I have to do tomorrow.” The 2012 FedExCup champion had nine birdies in a bogey-free round, playing the front nine in 6-under 29. “You always feel like you’re exactly one swing away from hitting something off the planet or something like that,” Snedeker said. “I felt like I managed my game really well today.” Mahan withdrew before he was scheduled to tee off Saturday in the round that was delayed 80 minutes because of lightning. “I received exciting news a short time ago that my wife Kandi has gone into labor with our first child,” Mahan said in a statement. “Kandi and I are thrilled about the addition to the Mahan family and we look forward to returning to the RBC Canadian Open in the coming years.” Sweden’s David Lingmerth was a stroke back after a 65, and Matt Kuchar and Jason Bohn were 12 under. Kuchar had a 64, and Bohn shot 66. “The birth of a child is a truly magical, special thing. You may get it once in your lifetime. It just doesn’t happen that often,” Kuchar said. “Hunter right now is playing some of the best golf in the world. It kind of gives the rest of us a chance with him not in the field.” Dustin Johnson also shot 63, good for a tie for fifth at 11 under with John Merrick (72), Greg Owen (67), Charley Hoffman (67) and Kyle Stanley (66). Merrick, two strokes behind Mahan on Friday after matching the course record with a second-round 62, played alone in the third round after Mahan withdrew. Merrick declined to playoff alongside a non-scoring marker. David Hearn was the top Canadian, shooting a 68 to reach 5 under. He made the cut Friday by birdieing his final three holes. “I felt good yesterday finishing the way I did,” Hearn said. “I didn’t play my best getting to the weekend but it’s a pretty

tight leaderboard.” Mike Weir was 3 under after a 73. “It was kind of adventurous and not very profitable at all,” Weir said. “Didn’t make anything again and struggled a little bit at times. Just never seemed to get in the flow of the round.”
Scottie Scheffler wins US Junior Amateur

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Scottie Scheffler won the U.S. Junior Amateur on Saturday, beating Davis Riley 3 and 2 in the 36-hole final at Martis Camp Club. The 17-year-old Scheffler, from Dallas, won the Texas Class AAAA state championship for the second year in a row this season and led Highland Park High School to the team title. The 16-year-old Riley is from Hattiesburg, Miss.

Langer shared the overnight lead with American Mark Wiebe but birdied three of his first seven holes to jump in front on his own. David Frost of South Africa shot his third straight 68 to sit alone in second place, while Wiebe only managed a 70 to drop into third, four shots back. Langer’s only bogey came on the 14th, but he finished with two birdies on 15 and 17 to stay in control. “That was as good as I can play,” said the German veteran, who is bidding for his second Senior British Open title having won at Carnoustie in 2010. “My ball-striking was almost perfect and I played really well, apart from the mistake at the 14th.” His lone bogey came when he hit his tee shot to the back of the green, sent his approach putt long and left and missed the return. He got it back immediately with a birdie at the

long 15th, added another at the long 17th and just missed his birdie chance from 12 feet at the last. Frost made three birdies in a row from the seventh but then made three bogies came on the 10th, 14th and the 18th, with two other birdies in between. Three players are in joint fourth place, six

shots back — home favorite Sandy Lyle (69), Australian Peter Fowler (70) and first-round leader Gene Sauers of the U.S (70). Colin Montgomerie of Scotland also had a 69 but is tied for 13th at 2 over. Miguel Angel Martin of Spain had the day’s best round of 65 but is also on 2 over.

Penguins hold car wash

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins mascot Tux rinses off a car of a Penguins fan on Saturday in the Coal Street Park ice rink parking lot in Wilkes-Barre during the Penguins car wash event.

Pete G. Wilcox | The Times Leader

With the start of the 2013-14 AHL season less than three months away, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins showed their season ticket holders a bit of appreciation on Saturday. Penguin players, staff and coaches personally washed the cars of season ticket holders who drove over to the Ice Rink at Coal Street. It was the first time the Penguins held the event, and despite being a little wet they may hold it again in the future. The Penguins’ first home game of the 2013-14 season will be on Oct. 12. Although the full season schedule has yet to be announced, the Penguins are guaranteed the following home dates: Saturday, October 12 Friday, November 29 Saturday, December 14 Friday, December 27 Saturday, January 4 Saturday, January 11 The Penguins will once again take the ice during the Thanksgiving (November 29) and Christmas holidays (December 27). Opponents for all guaranteed dates and the full Penguins schedule will be announced with the release of the complete American Hockey League schedule later this summer.

Romo
From page 1C Even if Romo plays, it will only be a handful of snaps. His most important preseason game is the fourth one this year — Aug. 24 against Cincinnati. But Romo just signed the richest contract in franchise history — six years, $108 million with $55 million guaranteed, or $3 million more than Super Bowl winner Joe Flacco got from Baltimore. And Romo didn’t take a real snap the entire offseason after having a cyst removed from his back. Thus the varying questions for Garrett on what he hopes to get out of the preseason and how many games are ideal for the starters. “Well, we have five, and so what we’re going to do is try to get our players ready as best we can with those five preseason games,” Garrett said. “The balance is to get your team ready, your starters ready, evaluate your young guys — that’s a really important thing so you cut your team down the right way. And obviously avoiding injuries is an important part of the preseason.” Health isn’t an issue for Romo, who didn’t talk to reporters while leaving the field after Saturday’s early practice. Garrett has acknowledged that Romo “wasn’t quite himself” when training camp opened a week ago, but said the quarterback has progressed well. “You know, he hasn’t been in this environment in a little while,” Garrett said recently. “We’ve monitored his throwing a little bit in the individual periods. But he’s responded well to everything and he’s getting better every day.” Garrett had four preseason games each of his two previous training camps as coach. If he considers that the ideal number for starters — he wouldn’t say — the Cowboys could hold the first teams out of the game against the Dolphins and play them briefly in the last exhibition against Houston on Aug. 29. “We think it benefits us to be out here a few days earlier, and we certainly think it benefits us and the players on our football team, particularly the young guys to evaluate them in an extra preseason game,” Garrett said. Tim Steele became the first to crunch his car against the speedway’s concrete walls in an official practice. Steele slid off turn three and slammed into the barrier. Gordon was the fastest driver in the opening practice. So it began — and there was no turning back. Gordon, Mark Martin, Jeff Burton and Bobby Labonte have raced in all 20 Brickyards. IMS later added Formula One, Grand-Am, and motorcycles to the racing schedule. With IMS set for a $100 million makeover, there’s even talk of adding lights.

LOUISVILLE, K.Y. — After playing 30 innings in two days and traveling to Louisville in between, the Scranton/WilkesBarre RailRiders had a comparatively restful evening, rallying from three runs down to defeat the Louisville Bats 4-3 Saturday night. Dan Johnson knocked in two runs on a 3-for-5 performance to lead the RailRiders after the Bats scored twice in the second and once in the sixth for a 3-0 lead. Matt Daley picked up the win in relief pitching two perfect innings. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and

Louisville resume their four game series today at 6:05 p.m. at Louisville Slugger Field.

Spark
From page 1C “I’ve enjoyed myself tremendously,” Donovan said Saturday. “I’ve enjoyed helping with the younger guys. I’ve enjoyed being a part of team that really doesn’t have ego, that’s really excited about this opportunity. It’s been really fun to be a part of, and I’ve enjoyed it a lot.” Donovan wasn’t enjoying much after helping the Los Angeles Galaxy win their second straight MLS title Dec. 1. Saddled with the title of “best player the U.S. has ever produced” since he scored twice at the 2002 World Cup, helping fuel the Americans’ stunning run to the quarterfinals and earning him best young player of the tournament honors, nothing Donovan did was ever good enough. Though the entire U.S. team was dismal at the 2006 World Cup, he took the brunt of the criticism. He was the hero four years later after his spectacular goal against Algeria in stoppage time lifted the Americans into the knockout round, only to hear more grumbling when the Americans lost to Ghana. His early failures in Germany only fueled the negativity, and his success with the Galaxy was overshadowed by the arrival of David Beckham. By the time the Galaxy hoisted the trophy, he was, understandably, drained — mentally and physically, and wasn’t sure if he wanted to keep playing. Never mind that he only turned 31 on March 4, and the World Cup was less than two years away. While the Galaxy told him to take the time he needed, U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann wasn’t quite so understanding. He left Donovan off the roster for a series of World Cup qualifiers, saying Donovan needed to work his way back onto the team. When he finally felt Donovan was ready to play, Klinsmann said he expected Donovan to be even better than the player he’d been before his sabbatical. “It was his choice to take a little bit of time off. It was his choice to get a little bit of distance,” Klinsmann said Saturday. “He knew his way back to this group only goes through hard work. It goes through good performances. It goes through showing on and off the field. “Because of what he achieved in the past, his benchmark is higher than a lot of the other guys,” Klinsmann added. “We had honest conversations about it, and I said, ‘I want the best Landon ever, I’m not happy with anything less.’ And he took that challenge.” In Donovan’s first game back with the Americans after an 11-month absence, he scored twice in an exhibition against Guatemala and became the first U.S. player to crack the 50-goal mark. He’s been simply dazzling in the Gold Cup, scoring or having an assist in each of the Americans’ games. But it’s not simply the numbers on the stat sheet. He plays with a pace and rhythm few other players can match, and he sees the field as well as any coach. Both when he plays wide and in front of the goal, he requires additional attention from opposing defenses, opening up opportunities for his teammates. He’s also gone out of his way to help the many young players, and his veteran leadership will be even more vital Sunday with Klinsmann suspended for the game because of a tirade over officiating during the semifinals. “It’s been great to see him back in the fold and playing the way he’s been playing,” said captain DaMarcus Beasley, who has known Donovan since they helped the U.S. reach the semifinals of the 1999 FIFA Under-17 World Championship. “Like he’s said in different interviews, when he’s happy and excited, that’s when he plays his best. He’s done that throughout this tournament, throughout this month and hopefully he’ll do the same through our qualifying — if he gets called up.” While Klinsmann hasn’t indicated who will be on his roster for the next round of qualifiers, which begin Sept. 6 in Costa Rica, it’s hard to see him bypassing Donovan again. He’s done everything the U.S. coach has wanted — and then some.

Indy

From page 1C won the Brickyard, putting an emphatic end to his skepticism that a winning a NASCAR race in Indy would never mean as much had it happened in open wheel. “The first time they came, I’ll be honest, I was 100 percent against it,” he said. “When you grow up in the state of Indiana, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is the Holy Grail to you. I didn’t want to see anything different come to it. To me, it was the Indy 500 and

that’s all it was supposed to be.” That feeling didn’t last for long. Stewart won in 2005 and 2007 and was won over that NASCAR could truly call Indianapolis home. “It was everything to me,” he said. “My whole life, since I was a kid, that’s what I wanted to do. Not that I had some fascination with kissing bricks as a child. But my fascination to do it here was pretty obsessive.” NASCAR first kicked the tires of running in Indianapolis in the early 1990s. By 1992, the stock car series was ready to take a dip in the Indy pool with two days of tire testing.

An estimated 30,000 fans at the Speedway chanted “We want a race,” as the cars roared from the pit past a hand-lettered sign, “Indy fans love NASCAR.” In 1993, former IMS president Tony George extended the official invitation for NASCAR to come aboard. On Aug. 4, 1994, NASCAR hit the track for its first practice on the 2½-mile track. Cup veteran Ken Schrader was the first driver to complete a lap. Greg Sacks was the first to bring out a yellow flag as his engine burst just minutes into the opening session.

A-Rod
From page 1C Rodriguez strained a quadriceps and was sent to the minor league camp in Tampa, Fla., as if he had been a disruptive student dispatched to the principal’s office for a timeout. Wherever he goes, contretemps unfold. His life has seemed to unravel since Dec. 13, 2007, when his record $275 million, 10-year contract was finalized — on the same day George Mitchell issued his report on performance-enhancing drugs in baseball. He helped the Yankees win the 2009 World Series, shaking his image as an

automatic October out by hitting .365 in the postseason with six homers and 18 RBI. But in the time that matters most for the Yankees, he has only six postseason RBI in 75 at-bats since as his body has fractured with alarming frequency. He’s made six trips to the disabled list in six seasons for a strained right quadriceps (2008), right hip surgery (2009), a strained left calf (2010), right knee surgery (2011), a broken left hand (2012) and left hip surgery (2013). All the while he kept generating tabloid headlines for his divorce; for dating Madonna, Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz and Torrie Wilson; for participating in high-stakes celebrity poker games; for the $30 million sale of his Miami house; for

buying a Manhattan condominium that came with tax abatement. “Everyone goes through personal issues. Mine are on the front page of the papers,” he said five years ago. “I’m fine with it.” He was an example once, a three-time AL MVP praised for a work ethic that included daybreak spring-training sessions with coaches when most teammates were still asleep. But Rodriguez’s reputation has never been the same since just before spring training in 2009, when he admitted using performance-enhancing drugs while he was with the Texas Rangers from 2001-03. “I’m very sorry and deeply regretful,” he said then, adding he had been “young and stupid.” for cheating. They’re all economic and until there’s a new system in place the incentive will always be there for players to cheat. First time suspensions have to be longer, a year at minimum instead of 50 games. Those dumb enough to be caught twice should be banned for life. All contracts need to include a clause that future years are automatically voided if a player tests positive to PEDs, and owners have to agree not to give any player coming back from drug suspension more money than they made before. Take away the rewards for doping and the game can still be saved.

From page 1C The Oakland A’s didn’t seem to mind that Bartolo Colon tested positive last year for testosterone and had to miss the team’s playoff run. Instead of punishing him for that, they gave him a $1 million raise and a new contract to be their ace this year. Melky Cabrera also came out richer after testing positive for the same thing. The Toronto Blue Jays gave him a two-year contract for $16 million, more than he was making in San Francisco when he was caught. “He’s still a good hitter, on the stuff or not,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said at the time. Actually, he’s not. Cabrera has only three home runs and 30 RBI this year, while his OPS has plummeted from .906 last

year with the Giants to .676 this year. No matter, he’s got his money and it’s guaranteed. Braun has his money, too, and he’ll keep getting it even if he never plays another inning or hits another home run. He signed a deal a few months before being caught the first time, and the pay is staggering. He got $10 million just to sign and will be making an average of $21 million a year by the time it ends in 2020. And you thought juicing didn’t pay? In Braun’s case the $3 million he loses in pay this year is nothing. It’s like robbing a bank filled with bags of cash and being told everything will be OK if you return a couple rolls of nickels. Instead of being outraged, though, Brewers owner Mark Attanasio simply talked about Braun taking a step in the right

direction with his vague admission that he did something wrong. Meanwhile, the inductee dais at the Hall of Fame will be empty Sunday, a stark reminder of all that is wrong with the game. Baseball writers couldn’t stomach putting Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens or Sammy Sosa in among baseball greats, and fans should be grateful that they care enough about the sport to keep them out. Getting Braun to cop to something was a big step for Bud Selig and his investigators, who are going after players in the Biogenesis Clinic scandal like they’ve never gone after any before. Before they’re done Alex Rodriguez could be exposed once more, and 20 other players reportedly are targets. But all the policing doesn’t change the underlying motives

HOUSTON — Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is still recovering from a right calf strain, but said Saturday that he feels good and shouldn’t be out of camp much longer. Foster rushed for 1,424 yards and 15 touchdowns last year for his third straight 1,200-yard season. The Texans placing him on the physically unable to perform list the night before the start of training camp was somewhat of a surprise. “I thought he’d be ready to go, but (the team trainer) just thinks he needs a few days with them to work into the routine,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “But he’s had a good summer; he’s been here every day. I expect him back pretty quickly.” But they certainly aren’t going to rush their star running back onto the field only to have him suffer a setback. “I have played through a lot of things, but this is just something you can’t and there’s no reason to right now,” he said. “I’m just going to take my time and when I feel 100 percent confident, I’ll be ready.” Foster spent the offseason using a different training regimen in an attempt to try and “reinvent” himself. He said the injury was what prompted the change, but that it ended up being beneficial because he thinks doing

the same workouts too much could cause a plateau in performance. Steelers PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver Markus Wheaton will have to be a quick study if he wants to make an impact during training camp. The third-round draft pick missed minicamp and organized team activities due to NCAA rules, though he did work out with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in the weeks leading up to camp. The Steelers hope Wheaton can develop into the kind of deep threat they lost when Mike Wallace left for Miami in free agency. Wheaton says he’s just trying to make the team, a given barring a setback. Pittsburgh will need more production out of its receivers this season with tight end Heath Miller on the Physically Unable to Perform list with a left knee injury. Miller said Saturday he still has no timetable for his return. Bills PITTSFORD, N.Y. — The Buffalo Bills have released tight end Mickey Shuler a day before the team opens training camp. The Bills announced the move Saturday morning, as players were scheduled to take physicals at camp in suburban Rochester. The first practice is set for Sunday evening.

Buffalo claimed Shuler off waivers in May, after he was released by the Oakland Raiders. Listed at 6-foot-4 and 247 pounds, Shuler was selected by Minnesota in the seventh round of the 2010 draft out of Penn State. He split his rookie season with Minnesota and Miami, where he had two catches for 44 yards in six games. He split the 2011 season between Cincinnati, Minnesota and Miami. Shuler spent the final 11 weeks of last season on the Raiders’ practice squad. Ravens OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta dislocated his hip in practice Saturday and is expected to remain sidelined through the Sept. 5 regular season opener. The injury occurred when Pitta collided with safety James Ihedigbo in the back of the end zone vying for a pass from Joe Flacco. Pitta lay prone for several minutes before being carted off the field. “Dennis has a dislocated hip. We’ll have to take a look at that and see exactly what it is,” coach John Harbaugh said after practice. “It’s a serious injury. He is going to be out for a while. He will not be in the Denver game and we’ll just have to play it from there to see how long it goes.” The Super Bowl champions begin defense of their title on the road

against the Broncos on Sept. 5. Raiders NAPA, Calif. — Oakland Raiders receiver Andre Holmes has been suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances. The league announced the suspension Saturday. Holmes will be eligible to return to the Raiders’ active roster Sept. 30. He will be allowed to participate in all preseason practices and games. Holmes was claimed off waivers from New England in May. He played seven games for Dallas last season, catching two passes for 11 yards. Seahawks RENTON, Wash. — Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin will get a second opinion on his sore hip next week in New York, and Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Saturday all options remain for how the injury is handled. Speaking after practice, Carroll said the range for treatment is still unknown. He said Harvin could be back on the field in a couple of weeks, or surgery may be the solution to solve the discomfort in the area around Harvin’s hip socket. “There is a whole array of situations that could occur. We have to wait and see. It’s everything that he might be able to come back here in a cou-

ple of weeks and be ready to go, there may be some procedures that need to take place and there are a number of different ways that can happen and the lengths of the recovery depend on what has to take place,” Carroll said. “It’s uncertain right now, but for sure we’re going to take our time, be very patient and let the docs get a good look at it and make sure everyone has their two cents on it and we know exactly where it sits and see what the next step holds and we don’t know that right now.” Harvin’s exam is expected to be Tuesday. Carroll has not indicated which hip is bothering the wide receiver and when asked if surgery would be season ending, said, “That’s a possibility but we’re hoping it’s not the probability. We’re thinking it’s going to be better than that.” Jets CORTLAND, N.Y. — Rex Ryan has a prediction: If the New York Jets can draft South Carolina star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, he won’t be the coach. Ryan, considered by many to be in a make-orbreak season, delivered a gem when asked Saturday how much of his daily discussions with general manager John Idzik involve looking beyond this season. “It’s safe to say I won’t be here if we draft Clowney,” a grinning

Ryan said. “I can just say that right now. I think I’m going to say that without hesitation.” Clowney is the frontrunner to be the No. 1 overall selection in next year’s draft. Holding that top pick would likely mean the Jets had a terrible season. ”Shoot, that draft is miles away,” a laughing Idzik said. “That’s pretty funny, though.” Panthers SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said he has nothing to hide when it comes to testing for the human growth hormone. The same goes for two of his top targets in the passing game — Carolina wide receiver Steve Smith and tight end Greg Olsen. All three players said they’re in favor of the NFL

working out an agreement with the players union on a reliable way to test for HGH, providing it’s safe and not too intrusive. Earlier this week the two sides discussed appropriate procedures to test players for supplemental HGH, which is a banned substance but difficult to detect. Newton said having blood drawn is “not a big deal.” “Whatever the NFL decides to do I’m all for it, whether HGH testing or any testing,” Newton said. “I’ll be prepared to do the test.” The NFL notified players in an email recently to be prepared in training camp to be tested for HGH for a study used to determine a good threshold for a positive HGH test.

Pierre-Paul played hurt last season
AP Sports Writer

TOM CANAVAN

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Driving a car for more than 30 minutes, standing up straight for extended periods and getting into his football stance all had the same effect on New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul last season. It hurt, and it hurt a lot. The 2011 All Pro player disclosed on Saturday that he played last season in pain, and it didn’t go away until he had disk surgery on his back in June. “A back is a really, really horrible thing to have, back surgery period and you don’t want to rush back,” Pierre-Paul said Saturday before the Giants held their first practice. “I’m not concentrating on the first game, the second game, the third game, fourth game, fifth game, sixth game. I’m just trying to come back when I feel like I’m ready to come back.” While he feels better now, the catalyst of the Giants’ defense is not sure whether he will be ready for the season opener at Dallas on Sept. 8, although that is his goal. The Giants have placed him on their active physically unable to perform list, leaving him to continue his rehabilitation. “Honestly my plan is to get better, come out here and be a big part of the team and try to get to the playoffs because that’s where it starts

to make a Super Bowl run,” he said. “And be a better player than I was last year.” To be honest, Pierre-Paul had a sub-par 2012 season. After recording 16 ½ sacks in helping the Giants win the Super Bowl in 2011, he had 10 less last year as New York posted a 9-7 record and missed the postseason. To his credit, Pierre-Paul never talked about his back or how much it hurt. He tried to reduce the pain level by strengthening his core during the season, and he admitted taking three shots during the year to numb the pain. It didn’t work and it showed on the field. Pierre-Paul was not as dominant as he had been the previous year, although many suspected that was because opponents were paying more attention to him with double-and-triple team blocking. “Like I said, I don’t know how much my back had to do with it or whatever,” said Pierre-Paul, who added the pain started two years ago and only got worse. “It was a constant pain when I got down in my stance. When we played a 4-3, I always have to be down, and the push off that was there, and the pain takes away a big part of it.” Pierre-Paul said he disclosed the pain with the trainers and talked to the team doctors about it, but they recommended that he continue his core training. The pain seemed to disappear after the season ended, but it returned during minicamp. That’s when the disk prob-

lem was discovered and the surgery was performed. The disk problem had also caused him to lose strength in his right leg, tests showed according to Pierre-Paul. After less than two months of rehabilitation, Pierre-Paul feels he’s at 75 percent. “The whole discomfort is gone,” said the first-round pick who is entering his fourth season. “When I sit down I don’t have that pain any more. When I am standing up I don’t have that pain. I can stand up straight. Basically everything is gone. That’s a good thing. I am doing pretty good.” Pierre-Paul believes he can regain the explosiveness that made him one of the NFL’s mostfeared defenders.

PHILADELPHIA — Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin tore the ACL in his right knee during practice Saturday and could miss the season. Maclin went down at the end of a non-contact drill and appeared to be in pain while he was on the ground for several minutes. He was helped onto the cart and needed assistance getting off it and going into the team’s practice facility. “Appreciate all the love and support twitter fam…. sad day but I have setbacks my entire life. Minor setback for a MAJOR comeback! #birdgang,” he wrote on Twitter. Philadelphia is in its second full practice under new coach Chip Kelly. The first practice with pads is today. The Eagles signed wide receiver David Ball to the

90-man roster. The 29-yearold Ball played for Kelly at New Hampshire, and broke Jerry Rice’s Division I-AA record for touchdown receptions. Ball spent time in training camp with Chicago and the New York Jets in 2007-08.w Maclin is headed into his fifth season with the Eagles. He led the team with 69 catches for 857 yards and seven touchdowns last season, and the former firstround pick is in the final year of his rookie contract. Two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson is Philadelphia’s other starter. The team has veterans Jason Avant and Riley Cooper, along with several younger wideouts in camp. Maclin has averaged 64 catches, 863 yards and six TDs in his first four seasons. His best year was in 2011 when he had 70 receptions for 964 yards and 10 TDs.

PGC’s Roe to retire
The Pennsylvania Game Commission’s executive director has announced his plans to step down next year. Upon his retirement in January, Carl G. Roe will have spent more than eight years heading the agency. Roe said it has been his pleasure to serve Pennsylvania’s hunters and outdoors enthusiasts while working to benefit the state’s wildlife. “Serving with the Game Commission, particularly in the role of executive director, has been a great honor and privilege,” Roe said. “I take pride and satisfaction in the years I’ve spent here, and our many, many achievements.” Upon his retirement Jan. 17, Roe will leave behind a lengthy list of accomplishments, some of which predate his appointment as executive director. Roe joined the Game Commission in 2001 as the agency’s first-ever longrange strategic planner. The Game Commission’s strategic plan, which charts a course for present and future wildlife management statewide, is a product of his efforts. Among its many objectives, the plan contains one of Roe’s most widely-known guiding philosophies — that Pennsylvanians should understand the Game Commission plays an integral role in the encounters people have with wildlife. To that end, Roe developed the “Connect with Wildlife” slogan the commission has used for several years. Roe later was named director of the commission’s Bureau of Administrative Services, where he spearheaded a transition to electronic hunting-license sales. Today, the Pennsylvania Automated License System helps nearly 1 million hunters annually to purchase licenses. The Board of Game Commissioners in December 2005 unanimously selected Roe as executive director. At the agency’s helm, Roe chalked countless achievements. More than 50,000 acres were added to the state game lands system during his tenure. He oversaw the expansion of bear season to four days, including a Saturday opener. He implemented the Mentored Youth Hunting Program. He helped establish wild pheasant recovery areas and doubled to 200,000 the number of pheasants released annually. He helped to enact a permitonly fisher trapping season in select areas of the state. He shifted the focus of the deer management program to take into account things like the herd’s health and habitat — a change that was lauded by independent outside audits. And, of course, bald eagles continued their remarkable comeback, and biggest population gains, during Roe’s tenure. The list goes on and on. All the while, Roe earned a reputation for being an approachable leader. Robert Schlemmer, president of the Board of Game Commissioners, said Roe’s charismatic personality and his willingness to openly answer questions from the state’s sportsmen are among the qualities that will make him hard to replace. “He’s been quite an ambassador for hunters and other Pennsylvanians who enjoy wildlife, and the type of enthusiasm he brings to the job you just don’t find every day,” Schlemmer said. Roe’s work with the Game Commission represents his second career. He served with the U.S. Army from 1970 to 2000, taking part in combat tours in Vietnam and El Salvador, and retiring with the rank of colonel. At his retirement, he was Director of the Americas Studies at the U.S. Army War College’s Department of National Security and Strategy, where he taught strategic planning for national security. Roe is a lifelong scholar, earning a master’s degree in public administration from Penn State University; a master’s degree in management from Salve Regina University in Newport, R.I.; a master’s degree in Latin American Studies from the University of Texas; and a bachelor’s degree in political science from Virginia Polytechnic Institute. A native of Wayne, Montgomery County, Roe grew up hunting and fishing in Pennsylvania, and continued these activities during his young adulthood on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. He is a member of the National Wild Turkey Federation, Ducks Unlimited, Woodcock Limited and the National Rifle Association. Roe currently resides in Carlisle with his wife, Ines. They have two daughters, Courtney and Ashley.

Hunting on sunday a risky proposition
From a hunter’s perspective, the opportunity to hunt on Sunday’s sounds like a great idea. It’s another day of the week to do what I enjoy most, whether that’s busting up a flock or turkeys in the fall, busting the brush with a beagle for rabbits or stillhunting the December woods in pursuit of a buck. But there’s another perspective to consider — one that leads me to believe that all-out Sunday hunting for every game species and every season is not a great idea. I truly believe the resource, in this case deer, could withstand being hunted seven days a week. But not tom with the length of the Venesky current seasons and the high rate of participaOutdoors tion, which equates to Columnist an enormous amount of pressure at certain times of the year. It would just be too much. The lawsuit filed recently by Hunters United for Sunday Hunting seeks to put the authority of Sunday hunting in the hands of the Pennsylvania Game Commission. In that case, it would be up to the PGC to determine when and for what species Sunday hunting would be enacted. The lawsuit doesn’t specifically designate which species could be hunted on Sunday and no one behind the scenes has said deer are the main objective here. In fact, those involved in the matter have told me they’d like to see Sunday hunting allowed for small game and woodchucks, for example. Some would like to see Sunday hunting on private land only or use it as a means to further expand opportunities for youth hunters. I wouldn’t mind having Sundays to hunt small game, woodchucks or even fall turkey, for that matter. There isn’t a high level of participation in those seasons right now, so a seventh day to hunt probably wouldn’t impact those species that much. But the problem I have with the matter is there’s no guarantee that the PGC board, if given the authority, won’t open the deer seasons up to Sunday hunting. That concerns me, especially when it comes to the rifle season. There are more hunters in the woods on the first day of the rifle deer season than any other time of the year. The second highest-participation day is the first Saturday. Add Sunday to the mix and I bet the hunting pressure would be just as great. It’s another day that deer will be pushed, driven, road-hunted and pressured. It’s too much. My thoughts hold true for the archery and late flintlock seasons. Right now, deer season begins on Oct. 5 with archery, and continues until Jan. 11 with the conclusion of flintlock season. In between, there are about four weeks when the season is closed, and 64 days — including the regular archery, rifle and late muzzleloader seasons — when deer can be hunted. Add in the antlerless season for junior, senior, disabled and active military hunters (Oct. 24-26) and the early muzzleloader season (Oct. 19-26), and that’s 10 more days of deer hunting opportunities. Yes, I do believe the deer need that one day each week that is devoid of hunting pressure. Some may argue that deer are always under pressure due to the threat of predation, and that’s true. But why add to it by hunting on Sunday? It’s also true that the Game Commission can limit the impact to the deer herd by reducing the number of antlerless licenses allocated each year. But when it comes to Sunday hunting, they can limit the number of hunters in the woods and the pressure that results. There are other concerns with Sunday hunting, namely the impact it will have on private landowners, such as farmers. They’ve been vocal in their opposition and many have said they will post their land is Sunday hunting were allowed. Is Sunday hunting really worth that risk? If it is going to become a reality, I can live with limited Sunday hunting for species where hunter participation isn’t that great. Woodchucks and early small game, for example. But when it comes to deer, the line has to be drawn.

Hunters head into the woods for the Monday opening day of deer season. A lawsuit filed last week in federal court seeks to allow sunday hunting in Pennsylvania.

Sunday hunting heads to court
Group’s lawsuit takes aim at ban
tOM VeNesKY

There are a lot of reasons why Kathy Davis would like to see the ban on Sunday hunting in Pennsylvania removed. The prohibition is a “blue law,” Davis said, and is out-dated and unconstitutional. Forty two other states allow S unday hunting, the sport is safe so safety isn’t an issue and landowners should be delaney allowed to hunt their property any day of the week, she added. But there is an even bigger reason that compelled Davis, who is president of Hunters United for Sunday Hunting, and her group to file a lawsuit in federal court last week seeking to have the state’s prohibition on Sunday hunting lifted. That reason has to do with the future of the sport she loves. Having Sunday’s to hunt would allow children more opportunity to enjoy the

sport. Small game season, for example, would be a good starting point for Sunday hunting and giving young hunters more time afield, Davis said. “Isn’t that really the goal here? Our kids are only have Saturday off from school to hunt now, and that’s a busy day for their sports,” Davis said. “Sunday would give them a chance to get back into hunting. Sundays are critical to passing our tradition on.” In the lawsuit, the Pennsylvania Game Commission is named as the defendant even though the agency has gone on record with its support of Sunday hunting. In 2010 the PGC approved a resolution supporting Sunday

hunting. Despite that support, Davis said the agency had to be named because they’re the regulatory agency. Yet it’s that very support that could lead to a resolution in the case. Since the suit has been filed, the PGC and the state Attorney General’s Office has 60 days to respond before a date for mediation is set. Davis is hopeful both sides can sit down and reach an agreement. “I’m hopeful that will go well,” she said. Jay Delaney, a commissioner on the PGC board who represents the Northeast Region, declined to comment on the lawsuit but said he did support the Sunday hunting reso-

lution. He cautioned that the resolution wasn’t made with the intent of spawning a lawsuit, but rather to ask the state legislature to consider giving the PGC regulatory authority over Sunday hunting. “The resolution doesn’t say we’ll enact it. We just want the authority to be with the Game Commission,” Delaney said. The state legislature has made several attempts over the last 15 years to remove the Sunday hunting ban, with no success. The last time was in 2011 when now-retired state Rep. Ed Staback introduced a bill giving the Game Commission the authority to enact Sunday hunting. The measure stalled in the House Game and Fisheries Committee, but Davis was pleased to see the support and talk that the bill generated on the issue. Despite the failed attempts in the state legislature, Davis is optimistic success will be had at the federal court level because Sunday hunting is more about a constitutional right than politics and public opinion. Still, there are opponents of Sunday hunting who See HUNTING | 11C

Caught on camera
Velvet bucks and does with fawns have been caught on a lot of cameras this summer. We’ve recieved a lot of summertime deer photos and enjoy them all. This week a portion of those photos are featured (the rest to come soon). The first photo is a nice portrait of a doe in the woods at Hickory Run State Park. Patty Horn snapped the photo in late June. The next photo is described as a “deer family” by Rick Voelker, whose trail camera captured this image of a doe, fawn and a young buck in Bear Creek Township. Tom Svetz of Nanticoke set up a trail camera at Silver Lake Farms in Shickshinny and sent in photo of a rapidly growing fawn nursing and a group of bucks. Notice the lopsided antler growth of the buck in the back. Finally, Camille Daniels captured a nice close-up of a pair of fawns outside of Mountain Top. Daniels shot the picture on July 8 and the fawns are growing right on schedule. Check back next week for more summertime deer photos. Capture anything interesting on your handheld or trail camera? A nice buck, bear, coyote or anything unique? We’d love to see it. Each week, we’ll run photos from a reader’s trail camera on the Sunday Outdoors page.

From page 11C have been equally vocal over the years. The Pennsylvania Farm Bureau, which has 58,300 members, has opposed Sunday hunting anytime the issue has come up. Mark O’Neill, spokesman for PFB, said the organization still opposes any expansion of Sunday hunting. O’Neill also pointed out that a good number of farm bureau members are also hunters, but they still oppose Sunday hunting. “The last time this issue came up we had a policy vote on Sunday hunting and it was 94 percent in opposition. That’s pretty staggering,” O’Neill said. “Although we may have been the leaders in opposition, we aren’t alone. There are hikers, bird watchers, bikers as well. And not all hunters are for this either.” O’Neill said the PFB opposes Sunday hunting because farmers appreciate having that one day a week to work on or enjoy their property without having to worry about interference from hunting. He said farmers could post their land against hunting on Sundays, but many believe there will be issues with some hunters who won’t abide by it. “There is a concern that some would ignore it, and some of our farmers told us they would just post their land ‘No Hunting’ instead of just no hunting on Sunday,” O’Neill said. “That would be a shame because farmers and hunters have generally developed good relationships. “We will be monitoring this lawsuit and if there’s a reason for us to file a brief, we’ll keep our options open.” While Davis would like to see small game hunting opportunities on Sunday as a way to attract youth to the sport, she is fine with leaving the ultimate decision up to the Game Commission. She said Sunday hunting could be implemented with any species. “If the Game Commission doesn’t believe our deer population can handle an additional day, I don’t have a problem with that,” Davis said. “But I prefer they not exclude it.” Davis said her organization is accepting donations to carry the matter through the legal process and the feedback so far has been positive. That’s another reason why she is hopeful that Pennsylvania will soon join the other 42 states that allow Sunday hunting. “You can go to a bar, casino or strip club after church on a Sunday, but you can’t hunt. It’s an antiquated law that has no business in everyday life,” Davis said. “Why should I be restricted on Game Lands, my private land or private land I have permission to hunt on?”

www.timesleader.com THE TIMES LEADER

3 to be inducted posthumously into Baseball HOF
JOHN KEKIS
AP Sports Writer

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — One created baseball’s foremost dynasty, one transformed the role of the men in blue, and one notched the first hit in the first professional game. That’s the impressive legacy of baseball pioneers Jacob Ruppert, Hank O’Day and James “Deacon” White, who are finally about to receive the recognition they deserve — induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. The three men represent the Class of 2013 and they’ve all been dead for more than 70 years, making Sunday’s festivities something out of the ordinary. For only the second time in 42 years, baseball writers failed to elect anyone to the Hall of Fame, sending a firm signal that stars of the Steroids Era — including Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, and Roger Clemens, who didn’t even come close in their first year of eligibility — will be judged in a different light. “When December rolled around and the ballots were out for completion, it started to dawn on us that there was a better-than-likely chance that the writers might not

come to a 75 percent vote on anyone this year,” said Hall of Fame president Jeff Idelson. “Disappointed? Yes, because we feel there are candidates on the ballot who certainly deserved consideration. But surprised? No.” Approval on 75 percent of returned ballots is needed for induction, and with pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine and slugger Frank Thomas eligible for the first time next year, Bonds, Sosa and Clemens figure to be on the outside looking in for a long while. “I believe that this past year was an aberration — the first real ballot with some uncertainty among how the voters feel about some of the candidates on it,” Idelson said. “But looking forward, we don’t believe that this is the norm.” One thing remains constant — the awards for those who have chronicled the game. Longtime Philadelphia Daily News writer Paul Hagen will be honored with the J.G. Taylor Spink Award and the family of late Toronto Blue Jays broadcaster Tom Cheek will be given the Ford C. Frick Award in a ceremony on Saturday at Doubleday Field. Dr. Frank Jobe, whose groundbreaking surgery on

pitcher Tommy John has evolved into a game-changing medical procedure, also will be honored. The Baseball Writers’ Association of America last failed to elect a player in 1971, when former New York Yankees great Yogi Berra fell just short. Back then, the Veterans Committee selected Dave Bancroft, Jake Beckley, Chick Hafey, Harry Hooper, Joe Kelley, Rube Marquard, Satchel Paige and George Weiss. This time, the 16-member Pre-Integration Era Committee dug deep into the archives to elect an owner, an umpire, and a player who had significant roles in baseball’s earliest decades. Ruppert, who was born in

Manhattan in 1867, went to work for his father in the family brewing business instead of attending college. He also fashioned a military career, rising to the rank of colonel in the National Guard, and served four terms in Congress from 1899-1907 before becoming president of the Jacob Ruppert Brewing Co. upon the death of his father in 1915. Interested in baseball since he was a kid, Ruppert and Tillinghast Huston purchased the Yankees prior to the 1915 season for $480,000, then proceeded to transform what had been a perennial also-ran in the American League into a powerhouse. Miller Huggins was hired
Conveniently Located on Wyoming Ave., Kingston

as manager soon after Ruppert gained control of the franchise, and Ruppert then snared Babe Ruth in a 1919 trade with the Boston Red Sox, a deal that changed the dynamics of the sport. Four years later, Ruppert had Yankee Stadium constructed and “The House That Ruth Built” became baseball’s mecca. Ruppert also hired general manager Ed Barrow from the Red Sox in 1921, and together they won 10 AL pennants and seven World Series in 18 seasons. O’Day was born on the rural west side of Chicago

in 1859, played ball as a kid with his older brothers, and after completing his education apprenticed as a steamfitter while pitching for several local teams. He turned pro in 1884, but his arm suffered mightily in seven years of action and he retired not long after leading the New York Giants to the National League pennant in 1889 and pitching a complete game to clinch the 19th century precursor to the modern World Series. During his playing days, O’Day umpired occasionally and was so proficient

he was hired in 1895. After working a season in the minor leagues, he joined the National League in 1897 and went on to umpire more than 4,000 games. His greatest contribution to baseball was convincing everyone associated with the game to treat the men in blue with dignity. Despite repeated physical and verbal assaults from players and fans, O’Day maintained his signature code of fairness, often ignoring enormous bribes to favor the home team, and his colleagues eventually adopted his pioneering ways.

BUSINESS

www.timesleader.com THE TIMES LEADER

Bosses often confer on internal job moves
Q.: I recently applied for a position in another department without telling my boss. The job description sounded interesting, but lacked important details, including work hours. I figured, however, that I could ask those questions during the interview. A few days later, I was shocked when my boss informed me that “Phyllis,” the manager of the other department, had called to inquire about my work history. Shortly thereafter, Phyllis got in touch with me to discuss the position. When I learned that the hours would not fit my schedule, I withdrew my application. Now I feel awkward around my boss, because she knows I applied for another job. Although there is no policy on this, I believe Phyllis was completely out of line to contact my manager before speaking with me. Do I have a right to be angry with her? A.: Probably not. Telling your boss about an external job search is hardly ever a wise move, but internal job postings are an entirely different matter. In fact, many companies require that the manager be informed before an employee can interview in another department. Even without such a policy, managers frequently pick up rumors about these applications through the grapevine. Because bosses can feel blindsided by surreptitious transfer attempts, employees generally fare better if they explain the situation up front. In this case, Phyllis apparently conducted a rather standard internal background check before scheduling interviews, not realizing that your manager had been kept in the dark. Since she neither violated a policy nor intended to do you harm, your anger would seem to be misplaced. To avoid such unfortunate misunderstandings in the future, your human resources department should clearly define confidentiality expectations during the job posting process. Both managers and employees need to understand when and how this information can be shared. Q: A supervisor who reports to me spends a lot of time listening to one employee’s personal problems. “Pete” really cares about his staff, which is a strength, but I think he’s overdoing it with this woman. I don’t want to sound unsympathetic, but they need to spend less time chatting and more time working. How should I coach Pete about this? A: First, you must be sure that Pete understands his role as a supervisor. While he should certainly demonstrate caring and concern, his primary goal is to produce expected results. If he starts becoming a buddy or a counselor to employees, then he has inappropriately crossed a boundary. Pete also needs to recognize that attention is a powerful motivator. Whenever he participates in an extended gab session, he is tacitly encouraging the employee to come back for more, so he needs to start setting an appropriate time limit.

OFFICE COACH

Like many polite people, Pete may feel trapped in these conversations because he doesn’t know how to escape without seeming rude. He may therefore benefit from rehearsing verbal exit strategies. For example: “I’m sorry you’re having problems, and I certainly hope things work out. However, I think it’s time for both of us to get back to work.”

From page 1D American Eagle Outfitters and previously worked at GapBaby and Eddie Bauer, is filling her calendar with three-day trips to see 15 stores at a time. “I want to see that we have the right mix in the stores,” she said. “It’s one thing to see it on paper, but it’s better to see it in person.” Schumacher, who has 9-year-old triplets, started her job at Penney a year ago today, just as Johnson admitted that the store’s marketing wasn’t working and that twice-a-month discounts and everyday low prices were confusing shoppers. Penney has returned to coupons and regular discounting with printed ads twice a week. This year, does she feel the weight of the back-to-school season all on her shoulders? “I have a great team of experts with a lot of passion,” she said. “We haven’t had inventory like this in a while.” Canadian brand Joe Fresh, which debuted in Penney’s women’s department earlier this year, is now in children’s. Faux leather bomber jackets for boys are among the top-selling items in the collection, she said. Nike has been added to the girls department, and Penney’s own workout apparel brand, Xersion, has been extended to boys and girls. National brands including Disney and Penney’s Arizona have focused on age-appropriate dresses, skirts and matching sweaters, leggings and jeans. “So much of it is fundamental retail,” Schumacher said. “We have the inventory. We have the denim. tight budgets and letting their kids once again make the decisions.” Alliance Data Systems chief economist Rodney Davenport said credit card sales across his company’s portfolio have been strong this year. Alliance Data, based in Plano, operates 120 store-branded and cobranded credit card programs for major chains, including J. Crew, Pier 1 Imports, HSN, The Buckle and Barneys New York. How consumers use revolving credit accounts reveals how they feel about job security and overall confidence about their household finances, Davenport said. “Consumers are allowing themselves to carry a balance again on their credit cards. Department stores and specialty stores seem to do better in periods like this,” he said. The company also has seen the preferred payment shift from debit to credit, especially among consumers with better-than-average credit scores, said Mel Gintert, senior manager of marketing intelligence for Alliance Data. Nearly 50 percent of shoppers surveyed by Alliance Data said they plan to purchase their back-to-school items with a credit card, a shift from the company’s 2012 study, when 60 percent planned to purchase with debit. “When we see that shift, it tells us that consumers are once again comfortable using credit,” Gintert said. Finally, about 55 percent told Alliance Data that they plan to make purchases throughout the school year instead of buying everything at once.

will,” Schumacher said. She’s also keeping an eye on the competition. “My children think everyone shops the competition on Sunday afternoon,” she said. Penney and other retailers expect a tailwind this year in back-to-school shopping. Analysts see consumers opening their wallets a bit more.

The NPD Group expects sales to increase 3 percent from a year ago, and shoppers in its survey said they expect to spend more at department stores and specialty stores this year. “Consumers are spending more on desirables rather than only necessities,” said Marshal Cohen, NPD’s chief industry analyst. “Parents are loosening up on the

From page 1D owns the company with her husband, Emmanuel Williams. Paula Tompkins, CEO and founder of Dearborn, Mich.-based ChannelNet, said her business has picked up as the financial services and automotive financial services sectors have gained ground. She noted that changes in the digital world favor her business, too. “Customers are empowered now. They don’t want to hang on” with phone calls to call centers, she said. Instead, consumers are willing to handle many transactions online. ChannelNet has 100 employees, the bulk in Dearborn, and plans to hire six people in the next few months and at least another 12 within the next year. The company offers Web-based connections to retain customers and build business, which includes a platform for managing the auto lease turn-in process online. Clients include BMW Financial Services and Audi Financial Services. Tompkins founded the privately held company more than 25 years ago in California and opened a Dearborn office in 1996 to be near auto clients. The headquarters was moved to Michigan in 2001. She favors the Michigan workforce, noting that pay packages are 30 percent higher in California. “The economy is improving,” she said. But companies also realize that it’s essential to have a brand website that’s customer-friendly. The company’s patented software enables consumers to research a purchase, view sales incentives and complete a transaction at a store, through a call center or on their mobile device. Mark Zandi, chief economist for Moody’s Analytics, predicted that small-business hiring should grow slowly, but steadily pick up in the next year or so. Credit is flowing a bit more freely to small business owners, he said, allowing them to expand operations. Many small businesses are tied into the housing market, he said, so as housing revives, so to should hiring. Think real estate agents, mortgage companies, landscapers, garden supply retailers and hardware stores, law firms, accountants, home improvement, plumbers and electricians, moving companies and trucking jobs. “It won’t be a straight line — government cuts and tax increases are hurting — but prospects are better over the next several years,” Zandi said. Job hunters won’t necessarily find a straight line to a paycheck, either. The key elements are training and talent. Ronia Kruse, president and CEO of OpTech in Troy, said her firm could hire more than 115 people by the end of the year. That’s up from 200 employees now. The company, which provides information technology and engineering staffing, is looking at expanding into office space in downtown Detroit, as well. But Kruse says the challenge in hiring will be finding the right people with degrees in math, computer science, engineering and the like. She needs experienced program managers, mechanical engineers and electrical engineers. “Everybody is hiring the talent to deliver the projects,” Kruse said. Many companies had put projects on hold during the recession, she said, and now need to move forward.

Biofuels
From page 1D expand beyond the government mandates remains an open question. But already those that produce so-called feedstocks like soybean oil and animal fat suppliers are feeling an economic boost. U.S. animal rendering operations have struggled in recent years, after cattle herds were thinned by drought, Cook said. But demand from the biofuels industry has provided a surprising boost. Prices on products such as tallow are up more than 50 percent since 2007. “The biofuels demand continues to grow. It’s put a good underpinning in the market,” Cook said. Farmers have seen a similar benefit. A 2011 study by Purdue University found high demand from the biofuels sector had led to rising prices on crops such as soybeans and corn. Concern that rising biofuel demand will lead to a spike in food prices is pushing scientists to look

for fuel sources outside the food supply. Some hope that algae, of which there is near-limitless supply across the world’s oceans, can one day fill that void. But the technology to convert algae into an economically viable fuel has not been developed yet, said Arthur Ragauskas, a chemistry professor at Georgia Tech who works on developing new biofuel technologies. And scientists are waiting to see whether a new technique to turn trees, cornstalks and certain species of grass into a fuel source will prove cost-effective. “There have been breakthroughs that five or six years ago no one knew if they would happen,” Ragauskas said.

STICK vs. CARROT Investors have been punishing companies for missing earnings estimates far more than they’ve rewarded companies for topping them this reporting season. Companies that have topped expectations have seen their stocks beat the rest of the market by 0.9 percentage points over the following two days, according to a review by Barclays. That’s a nice boost, but the effect is more than double that on the other side: Companies that have reported weaker-than-expected earnings have seen their stocks underperform the market by 2.4 percentage points over the following two days. Fortunately for investors, the majority of companies been beating 66 i have h b b ti expectations: t ti percent through Wednesday, according to S&P Capital IQ. RISING CREDIT STARS Good news for bond investors: More companies than usual look like safer investments. Standard & Poor’s keeps a running tally of what it calls “rising stars,” which are companies whose credit ratings move up to investment-grade from junk status. This year, 20 companies have done so. That’s nearly double the number of “fallen angels” that S&P has counted. These are companies that fall to junk status from investmentgrade. Usually, the number of fallen angels is bigger than that for rising stars. ORLANDO BLUES? A potential warning sign for investors of Comcast (CMCSA), SeaWorld Entertainment (SEAS) and Walt Disney (DIS): Fewer visitors flew into Orlando’s airport this spring than a year earlier. Citi analyst Jason Bazinet says that’s not a cause for alarm, but it could make it tougher for the companies to generate strong attendance growth for their area theme parks. Orlando’s airport saw 2.2 percent fewer passengers in May than a year earlier, following a 3.7 percent drop in April. Much of the weakness is due to a drop-off in U.S. tourists: Domestic passenger counts fell 2.5 percent in May, compared with a rise of 0.4 percent for international flyers.

Under the ETF hood
InsiderQ&A

Ryan Issakainen
Who he is: Senior Vice President and Exchange Traded Fund Strategist for First Trust Advisors His insight: Look for ETFs that are designed to deliver better returns than benchmark index funds.

The number of new exchange traded funds launched in the first half of 2013 fell about 45 percent from last year. But that merely reflects a maturing industry for the funds that hold multiple investments, like mutual funds, but trade like stocks, says Ryan Issakainen, the ETF strategist for First Trust Advisors. Rather than just create new funds based on various benchmarks, firms like Wheaton, Ill.-based First Trust are now designing ETFs that track more complex factors, such as various stock valuation metrics. This offers investors more diversity, but can also make choosing funds a bit more challenging. Does the drop in new issues indicate that sponsors are running out of ideas for new ETFs? I think what is taking place is the ETF industry is maturing. In the first stage of ETF growth, there were all sorts of asset classes and subcategories within those asset classes, and you could build an ETF that could cover that benchmark. It started with big categories like equities, then moved to sectors, then to themes. In the second stage, we’re seeing the development enhanced ways to access those asset classes. Can you be more specific? Stage two is taking, for example, large-cap equities or international equities, and instead of an ETF that tracks a benchmark, using a model that tracks dividends, or other factors. These funds are designed to deliver better returns than just the benchmark index. You might still have a fund that holds large-cap value stocks, but it’s designed to give better representation to stocks in the index that have bigger potential. That could mean weighting the portfolio according to investment merit instead of size. Is there still a place for the broader ETFs that track market indexes, for example, or major commodities? I don’t think those sorts of ETFs are going away anytime soon. Each has a place and a purpose in a portfolio. Some investors just want exposure to a benchmark, and want the ETF managers to make decisions based on tracking that benchmark. There are others looking to outperform the benchmark, and there are ETFs that will appeal to them as well. Some investors worry that if they buy a smaller ETF, it might shut down. Should that be a concern? It’s very difficult to predict when an ETF sponsor is going to close a fund. Some folks have looked at the size and trading volume as predictors. Combined with those factors, investors should look at the ETF sponsor’s track record and whether or not they’ve ever closed a fund before. The largest issuers very rarely close an ETF down. And if it’s not popular today, that doesn’t mean it never will be. We’ve had several ETFs that were small that some of the pundits predicted would close, and three or four years later were some of our largest ETFs. Interviewed by Eileen AJ Connelly.

Ever-multiplying airline fees can catch consumers bysurprise
during a speech at a meeting of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce. Unbundling allows passengers to pay for only the services they want, he said. Jean Medina, spokeswoman for industry group Airlines for America, said fees have a consumer benefit. “The model of charging customers for services they value and are willing to pay for has enabled airlines to keep airfare affordable,” she said, adding that airfare increases since 2000 haven’t kept pace with the national inflation rate. Without ancillary revenue, airlines in 2012 would have lost more than $8 per passenger, she said. The fee craze began in 2008, as airlines scrambled to boost revenue to offset rocketing jet-fuel prices while not raising base fares, which would put them at a competitive disadvantage, said Jay Sorensen, president of IdeaWorksCompany, which regularly examines airline fees. To be fair, some fees are for new services not formerly included in fares _ wireless Internet access and new economy seats with extra legroom, for example. Fees are big business. In 2012, airline revenue from sources other than tickets, so-called ancillary revenue, amounted to an estimated $36.1 billion worldwide, up 60 percent from 2010, according to IdeaWorksCompany. Fees were a big part of that growth. Airline stock analyst Hunter Keay said in a report this month that fees are a key indicator of an airline’s financial prospects. “We factor in our opinion of an airline’s willingness to pursue new fees when we decide whether or not to recommend the stock,” he wrote. But for consumers, Europe, according to IdeaWorksCompany. But some airlines are coming up with ways to simplify _ to rebundle the now-unbundled services. United last month was the first U.S. carrier to introduce annual subscriptions to gain more legroom and prepaid checked bags. Starting at $499 a year, the Economy Plus subscription gives United travelers access to Economy Plus seats, which offer more legroom. United passengers can prepay for checked bags for a year, starting at $349. American went a different route. In December, it came up with “Choice” packages that can be bought on a per-trip basis. For example, its Choice Essential option costs $68 for a round trip and offers no change fee, one checked bag and early boarding. Such packaging of services is likely the future of fees, Sorensen said. “You’ll buy light, medium or luxury,” he said. “The consumer inherently understands this approach better than the pure a la carte approach.” There are notable exceptions to the fee frenzy. Southwest Airlines is among them. It allows passengers to check two bags for free. It has no change fee. JetBlue is also known for being customer-friendly, allowing one checked bag for free and having generous economy-class legroom. How do you avoid fees? There’s no easy answer. Mostly, you have to know what services are available and what they cost because it’s so difficult to compare fares, apples to apples, among airlines, experts say. “The consumer needs to compare, do the math, take the time,” Banas said.

Buying a plane ticket today can be a dizzying consumer experience, sometimes with an overwhelming number of choices to make, each with its own price tag. Checking a bag? With most airlines you’ll have to pay for that _ and maybe for a carry-on. Prefer an exit row? That will cost you. Want to board early to snag overhead bin space for your roll-aboard? Be ready to pony up or use an airline credit card. Need to change your flight? That might set you back a whopping $200 on a big carrier. Want a Coke during beverage service? Frontier Airlines charges $1.99. Each airline, large and small, has its own offerings and prices, creating a bewildering hodgepodge of tack-on fees. Eventually, airline prices will simplify, industry experts say. “The fees are so high these days that the actual price of the ticket loses its meaning,” said Max Levitte, co-founder of Cheapism.com, which recently charted airline fees among a dozen carriers. “You feel like you’re being nickel-and-dimed all the time. … Consumers don’t know what to expect unless they read all the fine print, which is a lot nowadays.” What consumers call fees, airlines call unbundling _ making a la carte choices from services formerly included in the fare. Airline officials couch it in terms of giving fliers more choices. United Airlines CEO Jeff Smisek last month likened it to customizing a pizza. “We used to serve you a pizza with all the toppings, and that’s all you got,” he said

the trend is not a good one, said Anne Banas, executive editor of SmarterTravel.com, which also has published a chart to help readers negotiate the fee minefield. “For the consumer, it is very confusing,” she said. “Unless the consumer fights back, airlines are going to keep getting away with this and make it harder to make a good decision.” No-frills Spirit Airlines, recently named America’s most-hated carrier by Consumer Reports, is king of the nickel-anddime. In 2012, about 39 percent of the airline’s revenue came from ancillary revenue, according to IdeaWorksCompany. Examples? It charges $10 if an airport agent prints your boarding pass at the airport rather than you printing it yourself

at home or at an airport kiosk. Its website has 38 different fees for luggage, including carry-ons. It charges $3 for soda or juice. Spirit officials have defended the fee strategy, saying passengers who fly the airline know what to expect. “Our customers have told us again and again they want low fares and the option to choose the add-ons they want,” said Spirit spokeswoman Misty Pinson. “And we’re proud to give them what they need.” While Spirit and other high-fee airlines get slammed in consumer satisfaction surveys, customers don’t seem to vote the same way with their wallets. Spirit is thriving while America’s most loved airline, Virgin America, which has one of the best

all-inclusive airfare offerings, struggles, Sorensen said. “We see surveys that say consumers hate fees, but I’m not seeing that in practical application,” he said. Big network carriers have joined the fee party. In May, United, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and US Airways raised ticket-change fees to $200 from $150. While a passenger changing a flight has a real cost to airlines _ they potentially won’t be able to resell the vacant seat _ a $200 fee is reaching too far, Sorensen said. “It’s a decision obviously made by the bean counters rather than someone who’s in operations,” he said, calling it a fee “filled with conflict.” “If you apply strict enforcement, you get a black eye with the con-

sumer. If you begin to waive it based on consumers begging, then you train consumers to behave that way.” New and higher fees are cropping up often. In June, Chicago-based United instituted a $75 fee for changing or canceling flights bought with frequent-flier miles. Alaska Airlines has charged relatively low baggage fees, but this month it increased the cost of checking the first two bags to $25 each from $20 each, for tickets bought on or after Oct. 30. Meanwhile, the fee trend is spreading globally. The government of India recently approved a la carte pricing for airlines, and several European carriers, including Air France, British Airways and KLM, introduced bag charges for flights within

Can you explain the difference between secondary offerings and subsequent offerings? — F.L., Chicago The two terms are often assumed to mean the same thing, but they technically don’t. Remember that a company “goes public” when it first issues stock via an IPO (initial public offering) on the open market. At that time, it’s common for insiders or large investors to retain sizable ownership stakes, with only a portion of shares sold in the IPO. These big investors may later sell some of their (already issued) shares on the open market, via a secondary offering. At this point the investors collect the sales proceeds, not the company. If the company later wants to raise more money, it can issue new shares, via a subsequent (or followon) offering. These new shares increase its number of shares outstanding, diluting the value of existing shares and often not delighting existing shareholders. Investment banks underwriting the issuance will get a piece of the action, as well. These days, subsequent offerings are often called secondary offerings, confusing matters. *** Warren Buffett’s mentor, Benjamin Graham, said, “In the short run the market is a voting machine. In the long run it’s a weighing machine.” What does that mean? — K.L., Escondido, Calif. Graham was pointing out how from day to day, the stock market reflects the popularity of various stocks and the psychology of investors. Investors “vote” by buying and selling, sending prices up and down. Over the long run, though, the popularity contest fades away and value is what matters. Stock prices ultimately reflect or approach the value of the underlying companies, based on their sales and earnings, and their potential growth. Focus on the long run.

Be Careful With Numbers
To be better investors, we need to think critically about not just words, but numbers. They’re not always what they seem. If a company reports “record earnings,” for example, that isn’t necessarily impressive. Imagine that Porcine Aviation (ticker: PGFLY) earns a record $3 per share in 2010. But if it earns $3.01 in 2011, $3.02 in 2012 and $3.03 in 2013, each of those will also be record earnings, but they’ll represent anemic growth. You need to examine how quickly a company’s earnings are growing. (That alone isn’t enough, either, though. So keep reading.) Let’s say that Sisyphus Transport Corp. (ticker: UPDWN) reports revenue up 200 percent over the past year. That’s more telling than “record earnings” and would intrigue most investors. Check to see what the actual revenue numbers are, though. Perhaps Sisyphus has been struggling and took in only $300,000 in 2011. Two hundred percent growth would put it at $900,000

Q

in 2012. That’s still mighty tiny. It’s smart to consider companies in the proper context, too. A behemoth such as Wal-Mart can’t double earnings as quickly as a small upstart can. It’s usually easier to double $50 million than $50 billion. As companies grow larger, expect their growth rates to slow. They can’t keep doubling annually forever. Another potential danger is the “annualized” growth rate. When a company (or mutual fund) takes its total return over a number of years and annualizes it, it’s telling you how much it earned, on average, per year. This is generally handy, but check what period of growth is covered. For example, if Acme Explosives Co. (ticker: KBOOM) increased its earnings from $0.12 per share in one year to $0.37 five years later, its annualized growth is about 25 percent. If Wanton Punctuation (ticker: ?#$@!) doubled its earnings in three months, its annualized rate would be more like 1,500 percent. Annualizing a short period’s returns can magnify the gain or loss and distort matters. Those might have been extraordinary months. Numbers can tell you a lot — if you look carefully.

My Dumbest Investment

The Motley Fool Take

Timing Your Taxes
My dumbest investment strategy involved how I managed my traditional IRA. I made contributions while working and deducted them from my income tax, as allowed. My mistake was not taking out more of my money before starting on Social Security. Now that I’m retired and a widower, I’m paying a lot in income taxes, as my IRA withdrawals triggered the taxation of my Social Security benefits. It’s worth warning people about this. — J.K.C., via email The Fool Responds: For many retirees, it can make sense to take big chunks out of your IRA early, while delaying taking Social Security. Yes, you’ll lose some appreciation potential in your IRA, but your deferred Social Security benefits will increase by about 8 percent (for most of us) annually up to age 70, delivering a sizable guaranteed return and boosting your ultimate payout a lot. Everyone’s situation is different, though, due to marital status, earnings history, life expectancy, risk tolerance and other considerations.

FedEx Should Deliver
Shares of FedEx (NYSE: FDX), the world’s biggest air-freight company, have racked up a double-digit gain over the past year, but they have room to grow. FedEx has been dealing with sluggish economic conditions and high fuel prices by cutting costs and raising rates. The company has been slimming down its air-transport network and has offered voluntary employee buyouts to reduce unnecessary staffing. Some don’t like its cutting flights to Asia (due to weak demand) or its strengthened focus on ground deliveries, as those moves might constrain growth and result in tougher competition, but the moves are likely to boost profitability. The company is replacing older aircraft with more fuel-efficient planes. Meanwhile, the U.S. Postal Service may be a competitor, but it’s also a customer, with FedEx recently securing a seven-year contract extension worth $10.5 billion for airportto-airport transportation of U.S. mail. The long-term growth of e-commerce should boost FedEx’s business, as it delivers items ordered online. A threat, though, is a rise in same-day deliveries, featuring retailers working with companies such as eBay to offer faster service to customers. FedEx recently posted estimatetopping earnings, though management tempered near-term expectations. The stock seems appealingly valued and is likely to appreciate over the coming years. (The Motley Fool’s newsletters have recommended FedEx and eBay.)

USDA tries new strategy to stem glut of sugar imports
TREVOR GRAFF
Sugar glut means lower prices
Mexico, through the NAFTA free trade pact, is exporting tons of government subsidized sugar to the U.S., threatening an already low sugar price; trends in prices and trade: Until recently, price supports had kept the U.S. sugar price higher than the world price; in cents per pound 2013 2Q 40 20.3¢ 35 30 25 20 15 10 5

Prices in turmoil

WASHINGTON _ U.S. sugarcane and sugar beet farmers are bracing for a flood _ but not one caused by the weather. Rather, it’s a flood of imported sugar from Mexico. Record production and imports are poised to sweeten the U.S. market a bit too much. “This is a lot of sugar for our country to cope with,” said Jack Roney, the director of economics and policy analysis at the American Sugar Alliance, an industry group of U.S. sugar producers. “Prices are dropping to levels not seen since the 1980s, and the USDA is trying to avoid the consequences of that catastrophe.” To deal with the glut, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has taken the unusual step of retiring sugar-import credits and purchasing more than 100,000 tons of sugar, which allowed it to take 330,000 tons of surplus sugar off the market. The plan, which cost $43.8 million, weaved through a maze of sugar policy, transferring purchased sugar from the Agriculture Department to refiners in an attempt to lower foreign imports. In return, refiners surrendered import credits that had been awarded to

Facts about the U.S. sugar program

allow them to bring in sugar from overseas. The Agriculture Department expects the plan to save it an estimated $66.9 million by avoiding loan forfeiture costs from its sugar loan program. But many surrounding the industry say the move doesn’t make up for what they charge is outdated policy. Brian Mabry, acting coordinator of the department’s communications office, said officials had to take action among “atypical market conditions this crop year, including record yields and increased imports.” Mexico’s recent sugar surplus is causing problems for the U.S. market because that country has unlimited access to the U.S. market, because of provisions that are part of the North American Free Trade Agreement. A June

Agriculture Department report predicts that Mexico will export its record sugar surplus to the U.S., shipping more than 1.9 million tons into an already-saturated market this year. “It’s really become one market only separated by the costs of moving product around,” said Tom Earley, vice president of Agralytica, a Washington food and agriculture consultancy. Couple the solid season in Mexico with what Agralytica says is another strong crop in the U.S., and domestic prices are at prolonged lows. Sugar prices are nearing levels unseen since the 1980s. Prices have fallen to 16 cents per pound for raw sugar. U.S. prices peaked at an average of 38 cents per pound in 2011, after having fallen to 18 cents in 2000. Protecting the domestic market from heavily subsidized foreign sugar producers _ such as those in Mexico, where the government owns a 20 percent stake in the sector _ is a priority for the American Sugar Alliance. “We have a U.S. sugar policy for one reason only, and that’s foreign subsidization,” said Phillip Hayes, the alliance’s director of communications. Hayes said the subsidization had led to the record

supplies and artificially depressed prices of the current market. But opposition to the safety nets enacted under the U.S. sugar program rose to new levels during this year’s debate over a new five-year farm policy. Many confectioners and candy

companies view the surplus plan as a patch for outdated policy. “The fact that the current sugar program is forcing the USDA _ and ultimately American taxpayers _ to pay a $44 million down payment for excess sugar ahead of expected loan for-

feitures later this summer underscores exactly why this program needs to be reformed,” said Jennifer Cummings, a spokeswoman for the Coalition for Sugar Reform. Industry stakeholders charge that the sugar program contributes to con-

sumers’ and sugar-using manufacturers’ rising sugar costs. The Coalition for Sugar Reform, for example, says American candy factories and bakeries cut nearly 127,000 jobs from 1997 to 2011 because of rising sugar prices.

Deidre, by organizing these events, has allowed us to remember things we never had a chance to learn. Likewise, Mrs. Evan and that red and black jacket have allowed me to realize how much Coach Evan taught me. We always can learn more about ourselves as well as others. That’s no hollow victory.

YOuR OpiNiON: LETTERs FROM REAdERs

C’mon legislators; support tax bill

Homeowners and retirees, if you want school property tax elimination as much as me, it’s time to get busy. Many homeowners, around 10,000, lose their homes each year because they cannot afford to pay their school taxes and each year there are around 350,000 homes in foreclosure in Pennsylvania. The Property Tax Independence Act has been introduced in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and Senate HB 76 & SB 76, by Representative Jim Cox, and Senator Dave Argall as prime sponsors. For the past 30 years the General Assembly has continued to offer Pennsylvania homeowners nothing more than fraudulent, valueless approaches to property tax relief. We were also offered property tax relief from casino gaming revenue, which was for property tax relief, and the horse racing industry, which they divided up. To add insult to injury they used the table’s games revenue to balance the budget. Now we have the Property Independence Act HB 76 & SB 76, sponsored by 68 representatives and 20 senators. In Luzerne County we would like to thank these lawmakers who are sponsors of these bills; Senator John Yudichak (prime sponsor), Senator Lisa Baker, Rep. Karen Boback, Rep. Gerald Mulley, and Rep. Tarah Toohil. Our thanks to the representatives and senators who have shown they truly care about the school children and taxpayers of Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, we have not been able to have Phyllis Mundy, Mike Carroll, and Eddie Day Pashinski to be co-sponsors after presenting them with signed petitions from their constituents with

only excuses that the bill is flawed with ambiguous language. On April 14 an article was published in the Times Leader and Abington Journal about PTCC group pushes bill to the elimination of school property tax and statements were made by Rep. Carroll and Rep. Mundy about the bill. Representative Mike Carroll, and especially Phyllis Mundy are making lame excuses for not supporting HB 76, Carrolls’ comments about his not being certain if the bill would fully fund education and whether or not his schools would receive the same funding are ridiculous and indicate that he has not done any homework whatsoever on the legislation. The numbers and funding provisions are available from multiple sources, including legislation itself. Mundy is the worst of the lot, even though she said she will vote for the bill. She has always opposed elimination and makes biased and just untruthful comments to justify her position. We are infuriated by her taxpayer/business warfare ploy, suggesting that the legislation should be rejected because it eliminates for businesses; the IFO analysis clearly stated that the enactment of HB/ SB 76 would attract businesses and jobs to Pennsylvania. Finally, they want to see “relief” through the homestead exclusion which DOES NOT give a 50% reduction as they claim. The law allows an exclusion from taxes of 50 percent for everyone. And without a hard cap on property taxes they eventually rise to previous levels but with new taxes to pay for the temporary “relief.” Neither of the three, Mundy, Carroll and Pashinski, represents the needs of their constituents in any way but is apparently giving their loyalty to the special interests that pay for their campaigns.

Representative Mundy, you stated you support HB 76. Thank you, now lets take another step as Minority Chairperson of the Finance Committee. Why won’t you co-sponsor this bill and get your plus-nine members a push to get the bill out on the floor for a vote. Take the lead, don’t say you will wait for the majority to allow for the vote. The vote on June 17, 2013, was 24-0, 15 Republicans and 10 Democrats.

A few months ago I was contacted by two, professional photographers based out of Paris, France, requesting that they be given permission to photograph our 107 year old Irem Temple Mosque located on North Franklin Street in Wilkes-Barre. They reached out to me assuming that I was still in charge of the Real Estate holdings of the Greater Wilkes-Barre Industrial Fund. I explained to them that I was no longer affiliated with the Chamber, but after reviewing their website and credentials, I told them that I would see what I could do to gain them access to the Mosque. The artists from Paris are by no means “fly-by-night” photographers. They have art galleries in Paris, London, and Stockholm. Using large format camera equipment, their artistic passion is focused on memorializing historically significant, deteriorating theaters of Golden, by-gone eras. Please visit their website at http://www.marchandmeffre.com to view some of their work. These men are flying to the United States next week to photograph several, historically significant, grand theaters

There’s still time to save Temple

on the east coast, as well as in Canada. They have specifically set aside nine days to spend in Wilkes-Barre with hopes that they will be allowed to photograph our Irem Temple. They will be in Wilkes-Barre from today through August 5. The fact that our Irem Temple appeared on the “radar screen” of these artists in Paris, France should tell us something about the architectural significance of this treasure sitting in our back yard. The residents of Northeastern Pennsylvania should feel honored that our iconic, historic landmark has gained global attention. This is an opportunity for our community that simply cannot be ignored. The problem is that the leadership of the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business and Industry has made it clear that they have no intention of allowing this French team to enter the Irem Temple, which they unfortunately own and control. When several members of our group reached to the President of the Chamber, William Moore, to express their concern over his stance on this opportunity, Mr. Moore’s scripted response was, “Thank you for contacting me about the Irem Temple and allowing photographers to enter the building. On the advice of our insurance carriers and legal counsel, we are unable to allow anyone to enter the building.” 2 The Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business and Industry, as Stewards of several publically financed projects and assets in the Wilkes-Barre area, including their ownership of the Irem Temple Mosque, I cannot help but feel that the Chamber is not fulfilling their fiduciary responsibility in doing whatever they can to promote our community assets, and to fulfill their Mission of enhancing the quality of life in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Why in the world would they stand in the way of any attempt to promote an initiative that could potentially assist in the restoration of this one of a kind landmark? If anyone can attach a shred of logic to any of the Chambers actions as they relate to the handling of the Irem Temple Mosque, please let me know, because I am surely at a loss. In stark contrast to what immeasurable contributions our Chamber made to this community over the past three decades, I’m not quite sure what their current mission or strategy is, or even what their significance and role is in contributing value to this community. Several months ago, we created a Facebook page titled; “Irem Temple Mosque Restoration Project,” which is devoted to keeping the public aware of any and all developments concerning our 107 year old Mosque. As of this writing, there are 372 concerned citizens who are members of this Facebook community. This website serves as a forum to discuss and exchange ideas on how to save our Irem Temple. This is no small task, but a lot of good ideas are being shared by the 372 members. Yes, there is clearly hope for the future of the Irem Temple. I invite all concerned citizens to view our Facebook page for news and updates at: https://www.facebook.com/ IremTempleMosqueRestoration Conclusion: The Hotel Sterling is now our newest parking lot. The residents of Wilkes-Barre cannot allow our Irem Temple to be the next victim of the wrecking ball due to unnecessary complacency. The Irem Temple can be saved. Thank you for listening.

Mr. Obama threatened publicly to “marginalize” opponents of his anti-coal agenda, and Barackobama.com does this by calling them climate change “deniers.” No rational person denies that climate change is a fact of nature, or even that carbon dioxide emissions may contribute to it. Mr. Obama knows this despite his effort to control the language of the argument, which is a basic PsyWar technique. Note also that he chose the hottest month of the year to renew this agenda, which is yet another psychologically manipulative technique. What honest and rational people deny is the proposition that the diversion of hundreds of billions of dollars from the economy, with much of the money falling into the pockets of Mr. Obama’s campaign donors at Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan Chase, will stop or even mitigate climate change. Cap and trade supporter Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s “Cap and Trade Could be a Boon to New York,” named these firms, and others, as explicit beneficiaries of this agenda. Leadership by honest example, or “walking the talk,” is the best propaganda on earth. When it comes to climate change, that leadership is simply not there. “Copenhagen climate summit: 1,200 limos, 140 private planes and caviar wedges” in the Telegraph, a British publication, describes what United Nations climate conference attendees do when they think nobody is watching them.. The United Nations then held its subsequent (2010) climate junket at the Mexican resort of Cancun, while Mr. Obama does not hesitate to use Air Force One and its carbon emissions for lessthan-essential travel.

heinous crimes, the victims in the Henry Stubb murder only wish they had an opportunity to stand their ground. Voting is an important tool, voter ID makes sense. Ronald Felton sees racism around every corner. If that were true, the president, mother white, claims he is black, Attorney General is black. How did they achieve such high honor in a racistnation? It’s amazing to me how government leaders pick and choose which racial crime will inflame the community. He who does justice will be in the presence of the lord. Felton remarks are divisive.

I wouldn’t be much of an American, if I didn’t stand up and respond to the remarks by Ronald Felton, NAACP, leader, that stand your ground benefits the white folks. That remark was an insult to every law abiding citizen, regardless of race. The city of Wilkes Barre, had its seventh homicide, black on black crime is epidemic all across America. Did he address that issue? Does he believe that citizens don’t have a right to defend themselves, their homes or family? Wilkes Barre had some
