Old bridge decision raises new questions

PITTSBURGH — The boom in oil and gas fracking has led to jobs, billions in royalties and profits, and even some environmental gains. But some experts say arrogance, a lack of transparency and poor commu- Hofmeister nication on the part of the drilling industry have helped fuel public anger over the process of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. “It’s a big issue for the industry. I have called for greater transparency. That is the only way to have an honest conversation with the public,” said John Hofmeister, a former Shell Oil Co. president and author of “Why We Hate Oil Companies.” As an example, Hofmeister said, some industry leaders have suggested that the fracking boom has never caused water pollution. But while the vast majority of wells don’t cause problems, “everybody knows that some wells go bad,” Hofmeister said.

Architect Rick Williams is hoping to preserve the old Irem Temple on North Franklin Street in Wilkes-Barre entirely, but if that’s not possible, he’s thinking about leaving the facade intact and surgically demolishing the interior to create an outdoor/indoor venue.

The recent approval of public funds to demolish a deteriorating railroad bridge owned by embattled tower Leo A. Glodzik III has prompted questions on how he acquired the bridge in the first place and why he didn’t tear it down as promised. Glodzik, 42, has become the subject of heightened scrutiny because he faces theft charges, a $519,204 state lien for unpaid personal income taxes and a civil suit alleging “insider trading” in his failed attempt to buy the Old River Road Bakery from WilkesBarre. Glodzik’s alleged theft of $2,100 from a vehicle has caused Wilkes-Barre officials to suspend a $50,050 annual towing contract with his company, LAG Towing. According to public records and past and present interviews: Glodzik bought the bridge from the Luzerne County Redevelopment Authority in 2007. The authority inherited the bridge, which was not open to vehicular traffic, as part of a railroad acquisition, and authority officials said they wanted it torn down because it was deteriorating and not linked to active rail service. County engineers had identified the bridge over the Susquehanna River as a potential flood hazard and had been pressing the authority to do something about it. The span connects the Coxton Rail Yards to the Harding section of Exeter Township. See BRIDGE | 10A

EX-PSU officials face hearing
The three will have their first chance to defend themselves in Sandusky case.
Centre Daily Times

DAILY NUMBER - 3-5-9 BIG 4 - 4-4-8-6 QUINTO - 9-2-4-9-0 TREASURE HUNT

HARRISBURG — On Halloween night last year, rumors started flying that new charges were being handed down from the grand jury that had been investigating the Jerry Sandusky child abuse case. Sure enough, during a news conference in Harrisburg the next day, then-Attorney General Linda Kelly delivered a bombshell in describing a “conspiracy of silence” in accusing three

Penn State administrators of hiding abuse allegations against Jerry Sandusky more than a decade ago. Facing charges for the first time in the Sandusky scandal was former university president Graham Spanier. He was accused of lying under oath, obstructing law authorities trying to investigate, endangering the welfare of children, conspiracy and failing to report abuse. Former athletic director Tim Curley and retired vice president Gary Schultz, already indicted and awaiting trial on perjury and failure to report abuse charges, were hit with additional charges of obstruction, child endangerment and conspiracy.

The three men turned themselves soon after for a brief arraignment in suburban Harrisburg, and they were released on unsecured bail awaiting their first formal court appearance, a preliminary hearing. The defense attorneys filed a flurry of motions, such as barring a key prosecution witness from testifying or throwing out the charges, to the various hierarchies of the state court system, and as a result, stalled the start of the preliminary hearing for months. Now, after almost nine full months since the charges were brought, Spanier, Curley and Schultz will have their first chance to defend themselves

against the evidence that prosecutors from the Attorney General’s Office outlined in a 59-page presentment. For the public, the hearing may or may not reveal new information to help fill in the holes about what is already known about the response to the Sandusky scandal, which led to the dismissal of beloved football coach Joe Paterno. The preliminary hearing starts at 9 a.m. today in courtroom No. 1 in the Dauphin County Courthouse in Harrisburg with District Judge William Wenner presiding. The hearing could spill over into Tuesday, and court officials have cleared the courtroom’s schedule for Thursday if

a third day is needed. The charges are based on emails that were discovered during the investigation and testimony from Penn State officials such as former university police chief Thomas Harmon and former general counsel Cynthia Baldwin. Spanier’s lawyers asked a Dauphin County-level judge to get a look at the prosecution’s evidence before the preliminary hearing, but the judge denied the request. The lawyers also moved for a dismissal of the charges, saying they are based on Baldwin’s unlawful testimony and some of the statute of limitations have expired.

Good show! Brit cars, planes delight
Wyoming Valley Airport brings lovers of wheels, wings together.
Times Leader Correspondent

FORTY FORT – Crowds gathered to examine a rare burgundy 1938 SS Jaguar while a 1943, dark blue Navy war plane rumbled down the runway Sunday during the European Car and Aviation Show at the Wyoming Valley Airport. Appealing to America’s love of automobiles and planes, the British Car Club of Northeastern Pennsylvania and the airport combined forces to present a unique opportunity to admire both. Joe Scrobola, of Valley Aviation, said Airport Day has been held for four years to give families an opportunity to learn about aviation. Ed Ostrowsky, club president of

the British Car Club, said this is the 11th year the group has held the car show, but it is the first year holding it with the Wyoming Valley Airport. Previously it has been held in the South Abington Park in Clarks Summit. Work being done at the park prevented the car show from being held there. Ostrowsky said there has been a steady flow of enthusiasts from when the gates opened at 9 a.m. until closing, which was well after 3 p.m. Boy Scout Pack 281 of Dallas offered food and refreshments. Threatening weather prohibited some owners from bringing their vintage cars, but there were about 100 vehicles on display. “All of these cars have character,” Joel Goldman, treasurer of the BCC said. “There is a car for everyone.” Vince Gatto of Hughestown, owner of the 1938 SS Jaguar, said that before World War II, the Shallow Side Car Co., known

as SS, made side cars for motorcycles. In 1938, the company designed and handmade only 118 SS “Jaguars.” After the war, there were changes. “Because the war had just ended, many people thought the SS looked too much like the German insignia,” he said. “Eventually the SS was dropped and they became known as Jaguars.” Proudly giving a walk-around, Gatto pointed out the car has the original registration on the front and back, the original engine block with the SS embossed on the side, and the original honeycomb radiator. Cruising the skies was an option for the more adventurous of spirit. Plane rides were available in a Cessna, an Alaskan bush plane, a 1954 T28 or a 1943 SNJ Texan. Rides cost $20 and up, depending on the type of plane. They lasted about 15 minutes and provided a scenic view of the Wyoming Valley. Scrobola said that often Airport

‘The Wolverine’ top of box office
AP Entertainment Writer

LOS ANGELES — “The Wolverine” slashed monsters and minions to debut atop the weekend box office. The Fox film featuring Hugh Jackman’s sixth turn as the claw-wielding superhero opened with $55 million in North America, according to studio estimates Sunday. Last weekend’s top movie, Warner Bros.’ low-budget horror “The Conjuring,” slipped to second place, adding another $22.1 million to its take. “Despicable Me 2” was in third with $16 million. The Universal animated sequel, with its cast of cute, yellow minions, has made more than $600 million worldwide since it came out four weeks ago. “The Wolverine,” which is set in Japan and features an international cast, earned another $86.1 million overseas. The film’s opening-week take surpassed the $120 million it cost to make, said Chris Aronson, Fox’s head of domestic distribution. “It’s a huge opening for the clawed one,” he said. “It played equally well from Maine to Maui.” Another Fox film, the animated snailracing tale “Turbo,” was in fourth place with $13.3 million. Adam Sandler’s “Grown Ups 2” followed with $11.5 million. Woody Allen’s latest, “Blue Jasmine,”

enjoyed a stellar opening of its own, though on a much smaller scale. Starring Cate Blanchett, the film opened in just six theaters but still collected $612,767. “It’s one of the biggest opening pertheater averages ever for a non-animated film,” said Paul Dergarabedian of box-office tracker Ticket sales this weekend were up almost 30 percent over the same weekend last summer, he said.

“It was a good weekend to be a moviegoer because the choices just got a lot more interesting,” Dergarabedian said, noting a mix that includes animated, independent and big-budget action offerings. “Fruitvale Station,” the Sundance winner already generating Oscar buzz, expanded to theaters across the country and edged its way into the top 10, contributing to a summer box office that is up more than 10 percent over last year.

WEST WYOMING — In a cooperative effort with the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the borough voted Tuesday to be the lead applicant for a Growing Greener grant to help improve the water quality of Frances Slocum Lake. The grant will also help fund streambank restoration and curb the erosion and storm water runoff in the upper Eighth Street area. Council also voted to apply for the FEMA National Flood Insurance Program rating system. To participate in the program, the borough must perform a series of storm water mitigation tasks. If the borough scores high enough on the rating system, residents will get a discount on their flood insurance, said council president Eileen Cipriani, pointing out that many of these tasks already have been accomplished. Council’s next regular meeting is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Aug. 12.

Tour bus flips over in wash amid Ariz. rain storm

DOLAN SPRINGS, Ariz. — A Las Vegas-bound tour bus carrying 33 people was swept away in northern Arizona by floodwaters Sunday and turned on its side as it tried to cross a wash amid heavy rains. No one was injured. The bus was pushed down the wash for an estimated 300 yards before it turned on its side around 1:50 p.m. near Kingman, Ariz., said Patrick Moore, chief of the Northern Arizona Consolidated Fire District, which had firefighters at the

scene. People inside the bus, which had left the Grand Canyon Skywalk glass bridge, climbed out the driver’s side windows and walked onto the shore. Moore didn’t know the name of the company that owned the bus. The bus company was sending another bus to pick up the tourists. The crash happened as northern Arizona was hit with a second day of heavy rain. Kingman is near the Arizona-Nevada state line and about 100 miles southeast of Las Vegas. The area where the bus accident

occurred received 0.75 inches of rain in about an hour on Sunday afternoon, said Chris Stumpf, a National Weather Service forecaster in Las Vegas. A flash flood warning was in effect when the accident occurred, he said, and the bus driver shouldn’t have been driving through the area at the time. “It was a really strong storm dumping quite a bit of rain … and it caused flash flooding,” Stumpf said. “They were driving on a portion of the road where they shouldn’t have tried to drive across. They should not have been driving through there.” There were some swift-water rescues

of stranded motorists Saturday night after a storm dropped nearly 2 inches of rain in about 90 minutes around Kingman, Stumpf said. The flash flood warning around the accident scene has expired, he said, but there’s a chance for more heavy rain and another similar warning on Monday. The crash happened as Northern Arizona was hit with a second day of heavy rain. The Arizona Department of Transportation closed an 18-mile stretch of Interstate-40 Saturday night between Flagstaff and Kingman because of the flash flooding.

Luzerne County Council Chairman Tim McGinley said he’s exploring a possible solution to force public discussion and approval on pay raises and job creations. The issue surfaced last week because county Controller Walter Griffith gave his senior auditor a $4,000 annual raise due to an increased workload, even though roughly 300 non-union county employees in other departments have gone five years without salary increases. Griffith said he can grant the raise without public justification or council approval because he has unspent payroll funds in his 2013 budget. Though he exercised the power, he said he prefers the prior government system process requiring salary board approval for pay increases and new positions. McGinley said he plans to propose the inclusion of all authorized positions and salaries in the official 2014 budget ordinance. He believes that would force the controller, county manager, district attorney and court Jennifer branches to request a budget Learn-Andes amendment if Contributing they want to Columnist increase pay or add positions that deviate from the budgeted and authorized personnel plan. Budget amendments require public hearings and council approval, McGinley said. • Thursday is the deadline for county property owners to file an assessment appeal for 2014. Appeal forms are available on the assessor’s section of the county website, www. • The county is recouping $16,500 that can be spent on diversity, but council members haven’t identified a worthy cause or program. Prior commissioners had allocated the funding to the now-defunct county diversity commission several years ago. Council voted Tuesday to ask the Luzerne Foundation, which has been holding the money, to return it to the county. Councilwoman Elaine Maddon Curry said she believes the money should be set aside for its original purpose. Several council members expressed concern the administration will spend the cash on something else if they don’t specify a plan in advance. County Manager Robert Lawton said he will keep the money separate until council reaches a decision. “I’d like to assure the chair that these funds are not part of a manager’s slush fund,” Lawton said. • In an attempt to address past concerns about speaker phone meeting attendance, county Chief Solicitor C. David Pedri is now asking council members if they lost phone connection before establishing if their votes are counted. Councilwoman Linda McClosky Houck, who attended Tuesday’s meeting by phone, was prepared. She told Pedri she was disconnected for about six seconds at 8:04 p.m. and immediately called back to be reconnected. It was during debate about a parking

Autopsy is set today for body in SUV
Authorities said an SUV and the body it contained have been removed from a ledge in a ravine in Lackawanna County, The Associated Press reported. Officials said Saturday night that the vehicle was teetering on a ledge overlooking Roaring Brook. On Sunday, WNEP Channel 16 News was reporting on its website that the man was Frank Bonacci, 24, of Dunmore, who had been reported missing. The Lackawanna County Coroner confirmed the identity Sunday afternoon, the TV station reported. Lackawanna County District Attorney Andy Jarbola said an autopsy is scheduled this afternoon but declined further comment. Scranton police said the vehicle was about one and one-half miles upstream of a command post set up near the University of Scranton tennis courts.


Woman found dead in vehicle after fire
A woman is dead after suspicious vehicle fire early Saturday morning near the intersection of Route 209 and Keystone Road in Middle Smithfield Township. The Marshalls Creek Fire Co. responded to the scene for a vehicle on fire in the southbound Route 209 at about 1:45 a.m., Fire Chief Joe Quaresimo said. The vehicle did not show any exterior damage that would indicate it was involved in a crash before the start of the fire, he said. The cause of the fire is under investigation and is being treated as suspicious, Quaresimo said. Monroe County Coroner Bob Allen said the woman was pronounced dead at the scene at 2:46 a.m. Officials have narrowed her identity to several possible women, all of East Stroudsburg, but Allen said he would not be able to confirm who she was until a forensic autopsy this morning. Allen said he also cannot yet determine whether the woman was dead before the fire started. The Pocono Record

PLAINS TWP. — Peggy Dwyer modeled a lavender outfit on Sunday afternoon not only as an opportunity to raise money for Candy’s Place, Center for Cancer Wellness, but also to take part in the positive healthy spirit making that center a reality. Dwyer, participating in the fourth annual fashion show and luncheon sponsored by Candy’s Place at the Woodlands Inn & Resort, is herself a survivor and credits the center with fostering a spirit of hope and fellowship that makes recovery possible. “We are truly survivors, one day at a time,” said Dwyer. “I am simply and fully living life.” Marie Saltz, Ashley, a breast cancer survivor, echoes the need to fully embrace life after being diagnosed with cancer. “Candy’s Place helped me to do that,

the benefits of supporting cancer victims and their families. Located in Forty Fort, the center has served the community since its beginnings in 1998. Its focus is not simply on physical recovery, but on emotional and spiritual support for survivors and their families. The fashion show embodies this positive spirit as those battling cancer and survivors were able to “strut their stuff” in a celebration of hope and victory. The 22 models each sported a color associated with a specific type of cancer, with specific symptoms and challenges. “Although I’m wearing lavender in support of those with pancreatic cancer,” said Dwyer, “we are here today to support those with any type of cancer and their families.” Penny Cunningham founded Candy’s Place in memory of her sister Candice Vincent-Mamary, who lost her battle with lung cancer. “Candy said she wanted something

positive to come from her difficult struggle,” said Cunningham. “I know she would have thought the fashion show was a great opportunity to raise money and the spirits of those with cancer and those who love them.” Candy’s Place emphasized the importance of feeling attractive, being in touch with spirituality and purposeful relaxation. It offers programs that include facials, massage therapy and other forms of relaxation, emphasizing every area of a person’s life in the process of recovery. It also assists family members and caregivers, with services and support groups addressing their unique needs. Local TV news personality Brittany Sweeney, guest MC for the event, said “I am so honored to be emceeing this fashion show. Candy’s Place is truly amazing.” “We hope to raise over $10,000 in memory of Candy and in support of those battling cancer,” said Cunningham.

WILKES-BARRE — For Gleb Titov, reading U.S. current events every morning is more than just a daily routine. “Every day when I am waking up, I take my phone and look at the news,” Titov, 17, said. He checks the news on his iPhone 5 every day to “stay up to date with my country.” Titov is from Moscow, Russia, the same city where Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor who disclosed secrets about U.S. surveillance programs who is wanted by the United States on espionage charges, has been stuck at the airport for more than a month. Titov said the accounts of Snowden in the news from the two countries are different,

but he said he thinks it is interesting to compare the two. For example, American and Russian news outlets have different opinions on the subject. Titov is one of 40 students from around the world who studied English as a Second Language at Summer at Wyoming Seminary for the past four weeks. Wyoming Seminary’s setting in a suburban environment gives students an opportunity to experience American life on the East Coast, and Bahara Mohammadi said Kingston is “180 degrees different than Kabul,” her hometown and the largest city in Afghanistan. Mohammadi said the security of women in Afghanistan is the polar opposite of women in the U.S. She said she feels safe in Kingston and can go outside after 6 p.m., a freedom





she does not have back home. On the Fourth of July, Mohammadi, along with the other ESL students, went to Kirby Park to see the annual fireworks display. “I made an American flag with my own hands and brought it to the park,” she said. Although Mohammadi said she enjoys Kingston, she has not disconnected herself from her hometown. “I am very active on Facebook and I keep up with the news,” she said. On the other hand,

Geronimo Maspero, of Buenos Aires, does not keep up with Argentinian news because he does not want to distract himself from his studies in the U.S. “I do not even check the news of my favorite soccer team in Argentina,” Maspero, 15, said with a laugh. While Pennsylvania is struggling with the constitutionality of its new voter identification law, Argentina passed a bill that expanded its voting rights. This October, 16-yearolds will be allowed to vote in Argentina’s legislative elec-

tions for the first time. Mohammadi, Titov, Maspero and Rinko Oka of Tokyo all said that in order to vote in Afghanistan, Russia, Argentina and Japan, an identification card must be presented. Oka, 16, said she loves the nature in Kingston because Tokyo, as a highly populous metropolis, does not have it. “In Japan, there are a lot of wires, so we never see blue skies,” Oka said. She also said she likes the American education system because it gives her a chance to speak up for the first time. In Tokyo, classrooms are silent. Students are allowed to ask questions, but discussion and debate are not allowed. “Here, teachers give us a chance to share our opinions,” she said.

The deadly collision left the groom-to-be grieving for his intended and his best friend, while facing surgery for his own injuries as another friend is charged with manslaughter — two weeks before the wedding day. The speedboat crashed Friday night into a barge holding equipment for the construction of a replacement for the Tappan Zee. Police said it was being piloted by Jojo John, 35, of Nyack, whom they suspect was intoxicated and who has been charged with vehicular manslaughter and vehicular assault.

JERUSALEM — A divided Israeli Cabinet agreed Sunday to release 104 longterm Palestinian prisoners convicted of deadly attacks, clearing a hurdle toward resuming Mideast peace talks and giving U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry his first concrete achievement after months of shuttle diplomacy. The U.S. said preliminary talks would begin today. Release of the prisoners is linked to progress in the talks, meaning many could well remain behind bars. Neither side appeared upbeat, despite the possibility of renewed talks. Each has blamed the other for the lack of success in 20 years of negotiations, and Kerry’s

success so far has been only to get the parties back to the table. The prisoner release, approved 13-7 with two abstentions, is a key part of the Kerry-brokered deal. Next, Israeli and Palestinian teams meet in Washington on Monday, the State Department spokeswoman said, to prepare for six to nine months of negotiations on setting up a Palestinian state alongside Israel. The State Department said Kerry called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and invited them to send teams to Washington. State Department spokeswoman Jan Psaki said in a statement that talks would begin Monday evening and

continue Tuesday. It said the talks would “serve as an opportunity to develop a procedural work plan for how the parties can proceed with the negotiations in the coming months.” Netanyahu, seeking to overcome stiff opposition from ultra-nationalists, told his Cabinet that “resuming the political process at this time is important for Israel,” noting that any deal would be submitted to a national referendum. The chief Palestinian negotiator, Saeb Erekat, welcomed the vote on the prisoners as a “step toward peace,” one he said is long overdue. Negotiators made progress in previous rounds, and the outlines of a deal have emerged — a Palestinian state in most of the West

Driver in fatal train wreck questioned



The driver of a Spanish train that derailed at high speed was being questioned by a judge on Sunday as officials tried to determine if he was responsible for the accident, which killed 79 people. Francisco Jose Garzon Amo, 52, has been held by police on suspicion of negligent homicide. He has not been formally charged by a magistrate or made any official statements. However, minutes after the crash Garzon said that he had been going fast and couldn’t brake, a local resident who rushed to the scene of the accident said in an interview broadcast Sunday. The train carrying 218 passenger in eight cars hurtled far over 50-mph speed limit into a high-risk curve on Wednesday, tumbling off the tracks and slamming into a concrete wall, with some of the cars catching fire.

Pope Francis draws 3M in Rio

An Indianapolis church mourned their youth pastor, his pregnant wife and a congregation member Sunday after the three died when their bus returning from a northern Michigan camp overturned a mile from home. Saturday’s accident devastated members of Colonial Hills Baptist Church, who had been anticipating a joyful homecoming with the 37 people aboard the bus. The crash killed youth pastor Chad Phelps; his pregnant piano-teacher wife, Courtney Phelps; and chaperone Tonya Weindorf, deacon Jeff Leffew said. The crash, which happened Saturday afternoon near Interstate 465, injured dozens. Seven teens remained hospitalized Sunday, including one in critical condition. Bus driver Dennis Maurer, a 68-yearold member of the congregation, told authorities that the brakes failed.

Church mourns dead from bus crash

RIO DE JANEIRO — An estimated 3 million people poured onto Rio’s Copacabana beach on Sunday for the final Mass of Pope Francis’ historic trip to his home continent, cheering the first Latin American pope in one of the biggest turnouts for a papal Mass in recent history. Speaking from a white stage and looking out over the enormous crowd, Francis urged young Catholics to go out and spread their faith “to the fringes of society, even to those who seem farthest away, most indifferent.”

“The church needs you, your enthusiasm, your creativity and the joy that is so characteristic of you!” he said to applause in his final homily of World Youth Day. The pope’s trip, which ends when he takes off for Rome Sunday night, was hailed as a great success by clergy, pilgrims and everyday Brazilians alike. The pope’s nonstop agenda was followed live on television for all seven days. His good nature and modesty clearly charmed the nation that has more Catholics than any other. “This trip was a success. It was great to see the pope on his continent, in his house, speaking his language every day,” said the

Rev. Federico Lombardi, the Vatican spokesman. “It’s been a great experience to see this pope being even more spontaneous in his own house … so comfortable in what he was doing.” Nearly the entire 2.5 mile crescent of Copacabana’s broad beach overflowed with flag-waving faithful, some of them taking an early morning dip in the Atlantic and others tossing T-shirts, flags and soccer jerseys into the pontiff’s open-sided car as he drove by. Francis worked the crowd, kissing babies, taking a sip of mate tea handed up to him and catching gifts on the fly. Even the normally sternfaced Vatican bodyguards

let smiles slip as they jogged alongside Francis’ car, caught up in the enthusiasm of the crowd. The numbers clearly overwhelmed the area’s services: The stench of garbage and human waste hung in Rio’s humid air, and the beach and adjoining chic Atlantic Avenue looked like an improvised refugee camp plunked down in the middle of one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Copacabana’s famous mosaic sidewalks were strewn with trampled cardboard, plastic bags, empty water bottles and cookie wrappers as trash collectors in orange uniforms tried to restore order.

At least 24 dead in tour bus crash
Rescuers said Sunday that at least 24 bodies have been pulled out of the mangled wreckage of a tour bus that plunged dozens of yards off a major highway in southern Italy after slamming into several cars. The bus landed in a ravine. The Italian news agency ANSA quoted firefighters among the rescuers as also saying at least 11 people were injured in the crash Sunday night on the 116 autostrada near Avellino, about 160 miles south of Rome. Italian TV quoted people at the scene as saying about 49 people were on the bus, which was reportedly filled with Italian pilgrims returning from an excursion elsewhere in the south. Highway police said the bus crashed into cars that had been slowed by heavy traffic.

CAIRO — Deadly clashes broke out during funerals of slain supporters of Egypt’s ousted Islamist president Sunday, as the supreme leader of the Muslim Brotherhood urged his followers to stand fast after more than 80 of them were killed in weekend violence. Setting the stage for more confrontation, the militaryinstalled interim president gave the prime minister the power to grant the military the right to arrest civilians in what government officials said could be a prelude to a major crackdown on Mohammed Morsi’s supporters or Islamic militants who have stepped up attacks against security forces in the Sinai Peninsula. The extent of the bloodshed has dashed hopes of reconciliation between the country’s two camps, sharply divided over the July 3 military coup that removed Egypt’s first freely elected president following protests by millions of Egyptians demanding he step down.

Islamists staunchly reject the new leadership and insist the only possible solution to the crisis is to reinstate Morsi. Meanwhile, the interim leadership is pushing ahead with a fast-track transition plan to return to a democratically elected government by early next year. Egypt’s interior minister, who is in charge of the police, also pledged to deal decisively with any attempts to destabilize the country, a thinly veiled warning to Morsi supporters occupying two squares in Cairo in a monthlong stand-off with security forces. The international community, meanwhile, urged restraint. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry issued a strongly worded statement on Saturday, saying he told Egyptian authorities it is “essential” they respect the right to peaceful protest. He called on all sides to enter a “meaningful political dialogue” to “help their country take a step back from the brink.” The worst bout of violence since Morsi’s ouster

took place before dawn on Saturday when police and armed men in civilian clothes opened fire on his supporters as they sought to expand their sit-in camp by moving onto a nearby main boulevard. Khaled el-Khateeb, head of the Health Ministry’s emergency and intensive care department, said Sunday the death toll from the violence stood at 80. An official at Cairo’s main morgue, however, put the

toll at 83 after the facility received 11 more bodies Sunday afternoon. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media. Authorities conceded that the vast majority of those killed in Cairo were demonstrators, but the Interior Ministry said some policemen also were wounded as the military-backed administration sought to defend the bloodshed.

HIALEAH, Fla. — The gunman who went on a shooting rampage at a South Florida apartment complex was described as a quiet man who took his mother to doctor appointments, yet also someone who was known for getting into fights and yelling at his mom. The conflicting portrayals of Pedro Vargas, 42, emerged as police tried to piece together why he set ablaze the apartment he lived in with his mother and then killed six people before police fatally shot him. As the eight-hour standoff unfolded, horrified residents hunkered down in their homes, at times so close to the action that they could feel the gunfire or hear negotiations between the gunman and police, authorities and witnesses said Saturday. As the rampaged winded down, Vargas held 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. “Nobody seems to know why he acted the way he acted,” said Lt. Carl Zogby, a spokesman with the Hialeah Police Department. 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 of the shootings. “He was a good son,” said Ester Lazcano, who lived on the same floor as Vargas and his mother. “He’d take her in the morning to run errands” and to doctor appointments. Lazcano said she was in the shower when she heard the first shots, and then there were at least a dozen more. “I felt the shots,” she said. Miriam Valdes, 70, was in a friend’s apartment two doors down. She said she heard officers trying to convince Vargas to surrender. She said the gunman first asked for his girlfriend and then his mother but refused to cooperate. Valdes said Vargas was also known as a difficult person who sometimes got into fights and yelled at his mother. “He was a very abusive person,” she said. “He didn’t have any friends there.” Police were called to the aging, five-story apartment building in Hialeah, a working-class suburb a few miles northwest of downtown Miami, on Friday at 6:30 p.m. The first calls reported a fire, but when firefighters arrived, they heard shots and notified police, Zogby said. Vargas, who has no known criminal record, set a combustible liquid on fire in his fourth-floor 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.

Police: $53 million in jewels stolen in Cannes
Associated Press

PARIS — A staggering 40 million euro ($53 million) worth of diamonds and other jewels was stolen Sunday from the Carlton Intercontinental Hotel in Cannes, in one of Europe’s biggest jewelry heists in recent years, police said. One expert noted the crime follows recent jail escapes by members of the notorious “Pink Panther” jewel thief gang. The hotel in the sweltering French Riviera was hosting a temporary jewelry exhibit over the summer from the prestigious Leviev diamond house, which is owned by Israeli billionaire Lev Leviev. A police spokesman said the theft took place around noon, but he could not confirm local media reports that the robber was a single gunman who stuffed a suitcase with the gems before making a swift exit. The spokesman spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter on the record. The luxury Carlton hotel is situated on the exclusive Promenade de la Croisette that stretches a mile and a half along the French Riviera, and is thronged by the rich and famous throughout the year. The hotel’s position provides not only a beautiful view of the sea but also an easy getaway for potential jewel thieves along the long stretch of road. “It’s a huge theft. Anytime you talk about a heist with many millions of dollars it turns heads and feeds the imagination,” said Jonathan Sazonoff, U.S. editor for the Museum Security Network website and an authority on high-value crime. He said the likelihood of recovering the stolen diamonds and jewels is slim, because the thieves can easily sell them on. “The fear is, if you’re dealing with high-quality

minerals, it’s hard to get them back,” Sazonoff said. “They can be broken up and so they can be easily smuggled and sold.” The valuable gems were supposed to be on public display until the end of August. It was not immediately clear how many pieces were stolen. Several police officers were placed in front of the Carlton exhibition room — near a Cartier diamond boutique — to prevent the dozens of journalists and photographers from getting a look at the scene of the crime. Hotel officials would not comment, and attempts to get comments from Leviev or his company were not immediately successful. Europe has been struck by several brazen jewelry thefts in recent years, some of which have involved tens of millions of dollars in treasure. On Feb. 18 in Belgium, about $50 million worth of diamonds were stolen. In that heist, robbers targeted stones from the global diamond center of Antwerp that had been loaded on a plane headed to Zurich. Authorities have since detained dozens of people and recovered much of the items stolen in that operation. Five years ago, in December 2008, armed robbers wearing women’s wigs and clothing made off with diamond rings, gem-studded bracelets and other jewelry said then to be worth $108 million from a Harry Winston boutique in Paris. Also in 2008 — in February of that year — in a scene reminiscent of the movie “The Italian Job,” masked thieves drilled a tunnel into a Damiani jewelry company showroom in Milan, Italy. They tied up the staff with plastic cable and sticky tape, then made off with gold, diamonds and rubies worth some $20 million. The robbers had been digging for several weeks from a

building under construction next door. Cannes appears to be a favorite target this year — in May it was struck by other two highly publicized jewelry heists during the Cannes Film Festival. In the first theft, robbers stole about $1 million worth of jewels after ripping a safe from the wall of a hotel room. In the second, thieves outsmarted 80 security guards in an exclusive hotel and grabbed a De Grisogono necklace that creators said is worth 2 million euros ($2.6 million). Sazonoff said it is normal for robbers to gravitate to a place like Cannes, whose glimmering harbor and glamorous film festival attract the world’s rich and famous. “Why do thieves target Cannes? It’s simple … On the Cote d’Azur, it’s where the monied people flow,” he said. Sazonoff also said police would likely probe whether Sunday’s heist is linked to recent jail escapes by alleged members of the Pink Panther jewel thief gang. On Thursday, gang member Milan Poparic escaped his Swiss prison after accomplices rammed a gate and overpowered guards with bursts from their AK-47s, police said. Police say the Pink Panther network’s members are prime suspects in a series of daring thefts.

According to Interpol, the group has targeted luxury watch and jewelry stores in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the United States, netting more than 330 million euros ($285 million) since 1999. Poparic is the third member of the Pink Panthers to escape from a Swiss prison in as many months, according to Vaud police.

“The brazen drama of it is their style… The possibility of the reemergence of the Pink Panther gang is very troubling and taken seriously by law enforcement worldwide,” Sazonoff said. “The theft of high value diamonds is exactly what they do, so it’s not a great leap to assume they are on the warpath again. They are a crime wave waiting to happen.”

MOBILE, Ala. — Republicans hoping to reach beyond the party’s white, aging core must do more than retool campaign strategy and tactics, say young GOP leaders pressing elected officials to offer concrete policies to counter Democratic initiatives. “It’s very easy to just say no, and there are times where it’s appropriate to say no,” said Jason Weingartner of New York, the newly elected chairman of the Young Republican National Federation. “But there are times where you need to lead and present ideas on the issues of the day.” Weingartner and other under-40 activists at a recent national young Republican gathering in Mobile said their party must follow an all-of-theabove approach. Their assessment goes beyond the more general prescriptions that many party leaders, including Reince Priebus, the Republican National Committee chairman, have offered since November, when Republicans lost the popular vote for the fifth time in the past six presidential elections. The latest loss was due in large measure to President Barack Obama’s advantage over Republican nominee Mitt Romney among younger and nonwhite voters. For the most part, Priebus has avoided policy recommendations for elected Republicans and says the Republican platform, a political document that’s supposed to reflect the core values of the party, isn’t the problem. Weingartner and many of his colleagues agree with Priebus on the platform, and they praise the “Growth and Opportunity Project” that Priebus outlined in March. But the young Republicans’ ideas are more explicit than the chairman’s blueprint and stand in contrast to a hyperpartisan Congress where many Republicans tailor their actions to please primary voters who loathe cooperation with Democrats. Weingartner said House Republicans, who won’t pass the Democratic-led Senate’s version of an immigration overhaul, should pass their own version that at least “streamlines and expands” legal slots for foreign students and workers. For now, he said, that would sidestep Republicans who demand border security and Democrats who demand a citizenship path for immigrants already in the country illegally. On health care, Weingartner said that besides regularly voting to repeal Obama’s law, the GOP should emphasize its own ideas such as buying insurance across state lines, while better explaining the Affordable Care Act’s cost shift onto younger, healthy individuals. On same-sex marriage and abortion, young GOP leaders say Republicans should tolerate a range of views, even while maintaining a socially conservative identity. Some of these activists say their party must tread lightly after the Supreme Court recently threw out the most powerful part of the Voting Rights Act, the law that became a major turning point in black Americans’ struggle for equal rights and political power. “We don’t have to lose our principles,” said Angel Garcia, who leads the Young Republicans in Chicago, Obama’s hometown. “But we have to have a conversation on all these issues so we don’t leave Democrats to say we’re just old white men and racist, bigoted homophobes.” THE TIMES LEADER

Signs of declining economic security widespread
Survey finds increasing hopelessness among whites as economy lags.
Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Four out of five U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near poverty or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives, a sign of deteriorating economic security and an elusive American dream. Survey data exclusive to The Associated Press points to an increasingly globalized U.S. economy, the widening gap between rich and poor and loss of good-paying manufacturing jobs as reasons for the trend. The findings come as President Barack Obama tries to renew his administration’s emphasis on the economy, saying in recent speeches that his highest priority is to “rebuild ladders of opportunity” and reverse income inequality. Hardship is particularly on the rise among whites, based on several measures. Pessimism among that racial group about their families’ economic futures has climbed to the highest point since at least 1987. In the most recent AP-GfK poll, 63 percent of whites called the economy “poor.” “I think it’s going to get worse,” said Irene Salyers, 52, of Buchanan County, Va., a declining coal region in Appalachia. Married and divorced three times, Salyers now helps run a fruit and vegetable stand with her boyfriend, but it doesn’t generate much income. They live mostly off government disability checks. “If you do try to go apply for a job, they’re not hiring people, and they’re not paying that much to even go to work,” she said. Children, she said, have “nothing better to do than to get on drugs.” While racial and ethnic minorities are more likely to live in poverty, race disparities in the poverty rate have narrowed substantially since the 1970s, census data show. Economic insecurity among whites also is more pervasive than is shown in government data, engulfing more than 76

percent of white adults by the time they turn 60, according to a new economic gauge being published next year by the Oxford University Press. The gauge defines “economic insecurity” as experiencing unemployment at some point in their working lives, or a year or more of reliance on government aid such as food stamps or income below 150 percent of the poverty line. Measured across all races, the risk of economic insecurity rises to 79 percent. “It’s time that America comes to understand that many of the nation’s biggest disparities, from education and life expectancy to poverty, are increasingly due to economic class position,” said William Julius Wilson, a Harvard professor who specializes in race and poverty. He noted that despite continuing economic difficulties, minorities have more optimism about the future after Obama’s election, while struggling whites do not. “There is the real possibility that white alienation will increase if steps are not taken to highlight and address inequality on a broad front,” Wilson said. Invisible poor Sometimes termed “the invisible poor” by demographers, lower-income whites are generally dispersed in suburbs as well as small rural towns, where more than 60 percent of the poor are white. Concentrated in Appalachia in the East, they are also numerous in the industrial Midwest and spread across America’s heartland, from Missouri, Arkansas and Oklahoma up through the Great Plains. More than 19 million whites fall below the poverty line of $23,021 for a family of four, accounting for more than 41 percent of the nation’s destitute, nearly double the number of poor blacks. Still, while census figures provide an official measure of poverty, they’re only a temporary snapshot. The numbers don’t capture the makeup of those who cycle in and out of poverty at different points in their lives. They may be suburbanites, for example, or the working poor or the laid off. In 2011 that snapshot showed 12.6 percent of adults in their prime working-age years of 25-60 lived in poverty. But measured in terms of a person’s lifetime risk, a

much higher number — 4 in 10 adults — falls into poverty for at least a year of their lives. The risks of poverty also have been increasing in recent decades, particularly among people ages 35-55, coinciding with widening income inequality. For instance, people ages 35-45 had a 17 percent risk of encountering poverty during the 1969-1989 time period; that risk increased to 23 percent during the 1989-2009 period. For those ages 45-55, the risk of poverty jumped from 11.8 percent to 17.7 percent. By race, nonwhites still have a higher risk of being economically insecure, at 90 percent. But compared with the official poverty rate, some of the biggest jumps under the newer measure are among whites, with more than 76 percent enduring periods of joblessness, life on welfare or nearpoverty. By 2030, based on the current trend of widening income inequality, close to 85 percent of all working-age adults in the U.S. will experience bouts of economic insecurity. “Poverty is no longer an

issue of ‘them’, it’s an issue of ‘us’,” says Mark Rank, a professor at Washington University in St. Louis who calculated the numbers. “Only when poverty is thought of as a mainstream event, rather than a fringe experience that just affects blacks and Hispanics, can we really begin to build broader support for programs that lift people in need.” Rank’s analysis is supplemented with figures provided by Tom Hirschl, a professor at Cornell University; John Iceland, a sociology professor at Penn State University; the University of New Hampshire’s Carsey Institute; the Census Bureau; and the Population Reference Bureau. Among the findings: —For the first time since 1975, the number of white single-mother households who were living in poverty with children surpassed or equaled black ones in the past decade, spurred by job losses and faster rates of out-of-wedlock births among whites. White single-mother families in poverty stood at nearly 1.5 million in 2011, comparable to the

number for blacks. Hispanic single-mother families in poverty trailed at 1.2 million. —The share of children living in high-poverty neighborhoods — those with poverty rates of 30 percent or more — has increased to 1 in 10, putting them at higher risk of teen pregnancy or dropping out of school. Non-Hispanic whites accounted for 17 percent of the child population in such neighborhoods, up from 13 percent in 2000, even though the overall proportion of white children in the U.S. has been declining. The share of black children in high-poverty neighborhoods dropped sharply, from 43 percent to 37 percent, while the share of Latino children ticked higher, from 38 to 39 percent. Working class gloomy Going back to the 1980s, never have whites been so pessimistic about their futures, according to the General Social Survey, which is conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago. Just 45 percent say their family will have a good chance of improving their economic position

based on the way things are in America. The divide is especially evident among those whites who self-identify as working class: 49 percent say they think their children will do better than them, compared with 67 percent of non-whites who consider themselves working class. In November, Obama won the votes of just 36 percent of those noncollege whites, the worst performance of any Democratic nominee among that group since 1984. Some Democratic analysts have urged renewed efforts to bring working-class whites into the political fold, calling them a potential “decisive swing voter group” if minority and youth turnout level off in future elections. “They don’t trust big government, but it doesn’t mean they want no government,” says Republican pollster Ed Goeas, who agrees that working-class whites will remain an important electoral group. “They feel that politicians are giving attention to other people and not them.”

Differences small between D.C. student loan bills
Both chambers would link the interest rate to the 10-year note plus an added percentage.
Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The House is set to go along with a bipartisan Senate compromise that would link college students’ interest rates to the financial markets and offer borrowers lower rates this fall. The Senate bill hews closely to one the House already has passed, and leaders from both parties and in both chambers expect those differences won’t stand in the way of quick resolution, perhaps as early as Wednesday. House approval would send the measure to President Barack Obama, who has said he would sign it into law “right away.” But critics note that if the economy improves, as expected, rates could climb higher. If the Republican-led House consents to the Senate’s tinkering with the House’s earlier proposal, and Obama signs the legislation before students start returning to campus, families would see better deals on some federal loans this year than they did in 2012. Undergraduates could borrow at rates as low as 3.4 percent for subsidized Stafford loans and 6.8 percent on unsubsidized Stafford loans last year, while graduate students and parents borrowed at 7.9 percent last year. Those 3.4 percent rates doubled on July 1 because Congress did not act. Lawmakers from both parties said the rate increase was unacceptable and worked on various proposals to extend rates, overhaul rates and even remake the entire program before classes start this fall. Both chambers would link the interest rate to the 10-year Treasury note plus an added percentage, based on the type of loan. Each sets caps on how high the loans can go.

But under the Senate bill, once a student or parent takes a loan for the school year the rate would not change. The House bill would make the interest rate variable, meaning it could change every year until the loan is repaid. A look at what the House and Senate bills would mean for students and their parents: UNDERGRADUATES: Senate: Undergraduates who take subsidized and unsubsidized Stafford loans would pay the 10-year Treasury note, plus an additional 2.05 percent. That would put the interest rate at about 3.9 percent this fall. Rates would be capped at 8.25 percent. House: Under the House bill, undergraduates who take subsidized and unsubsidized Stafford loans would pay the 10-year Treasury note, plus an additional 2.5 percent. That would translate to an interest rate of about 4.3 percent interest rates for loans taken this fall. Rates would be capped at 8.5 percent. GRADUATE STUDENTS: Senate: Graduate students would borrow at the interest rate of the 10-year Treasury notes plus an additional 3.6 percent. That would bring 5.4 percent interest rates for borrowers this fall. Rates would be capped at 9.5 percent. House: Graduate students and parents would borrow at the 10-year Treasury note plus an additional 4.5 percent. Under this formula, graduate student loans this fall would carry a 6.3 percent interest rate. Rates would be capped at 10.5 percent. PARENTS AND SOME GRADUATE STUDENTS: Senate: Parents and some graduate students would borrow at the 10-year Treasury note plus an additional 4.6 percent. That works out to a 6.4 percent interest rate for fall term. Rates would be capped at 10.5 percent. House: Graduate students and parents would borrow at the 10-year Treasury note plus an additional 4.5 percent. That would bring about 6.3 percent interest AP photo rates for borrowers this fall. Rates would Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., chair of the Senate Republican Caucus, speaks with reporters just before the final vote Wednesday on whether be capped at 10.5 percent to reverse the recent hike in rates for government student loans, at the Capitol in Washington.

For months, the media had given in-depth coverage on Kate Middleton’s pregnancy that precariously bordered on utter voyeurism. The hoax call placed by two Australian DJs to the hospital, where Kate was getting treatment for morning sickness, represents a tiny example of the great media interest in her pregnancy. But now the “great Kate wait” is over. The Duchess of Cambridge delivered an eight-pound, six-ounce, baby boy, much to the delight of her compatriots, who arrived in hordes outside the Buckingham Palace to celebrate his birth. Congratulatory messages have poured in from all over the world following the much-awaited birth of George Alexander Louis. The international interest in the arrival of the royal baby has been especially phenomenal. The media in the US — a country that has been historically bereft of an aristocratic class and prides itself for giving its citizens equal opportunities — has ironically shown a great obsession with the royal baby. The news of Kate’s

Our royal fascination

delivery made it to every major news bulletin and websites such as the New York Post altered their layout to dedicate space to coverage of the event. It seems like the modern fairytale has generated much fascination among the Americans, despite their age-old dislike for the concept of nobility or a privileged class. But there are some who are rather puzzled or annoyed by this abnormal fixation on the latest addition to the British royal family and have taken to the social media to express their views. These people, however, should know that the royal baby mania is not going to die anytime soon. Soon the paparazzi will go in a mad rage to snap a picture of the newborn. Subsequently, the baby’s looks will spawn columns in tabloids. So, everyone must get ready to hear and watch anything and everything about the future King of England. George Alexander Louis — is definitely going to be the most talked about baby in the world, and there’s nothing that will change that.

The Khaleej Times, Dubai

One of the most reliable indications that things are not well in an economy or a society is a rise in street trading and increased harshness in enforcing the rules that control it. When people can’t find proper jobs or can’t stand the ones that are available, they go to the streets with a barrow-load of vegetables, a swatch of scarves or a tray of cheap plastic toys. Sometimes they have licences; often they do not. Then the police or their auxiliaries appear, one day taking bribes, the next day confiscating produce, but in either case standing between ordinary men and women and what they see as their right, and sometimes their desperate need, to make a living. China and Tunisia are about as different as two countries could be. Yet that has not stopped Chinese critics likening the death of a watermelon vendor in Linwu, in Hunan province, last week to the case of Mohamed Bouazizi, the Tunisian fruitseller whose suicide led to the fall of Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali. Deng Zhengjia was apparently beaten up by chengguan, officials whose job is to keep China’s cities free of the untidy open-air commerce other Asian countries generally tolerate. The Chinese concern with order verges on the obsessive, but it is espe-

An obsession with order


cially problematic when it is combined, as it is, with serious corruption, reaching to the highest levels of party and government. … Rivalling Deng as an object of sympathy at the moment is Ji Zhongxing, a former taxi driver who blew himself up in his own wheelchair at Beijing airport. He too appears to be a victim of the chengguan, who he says crippled him after a traffic incident in 2005. When the evasion of planning regulations magnifies the suffering inflicted by natural disaster, as it has in the past, a particularly cruel form of suppression threatens those whose lives have already been shattered by the loss of loved ones, although Monday’s earthquake near Dingxi in western China does not seem, so far, to have a dimension of that kind. The corruption experienced by the average Chinese citizen is petty compared to what goes on higher up. In that stratosphere, the corrupt police the corrupt. The ubiquity in China of inducements that are legal, semi-legal and illegal, with vague boundaries between the three, has created a minefield for international corporations, as GlaxoSmithKline is discovering. Who in these circumstances is the corrupt, and who the corrupter?

Has the time come to flip the classroom?
Over the last 15 years, educators have been developing a model that literally stands the classroom on its head. This disruptive innovation uses a variety of technologies to promote change for improvement. The disruptive innovator creates change through a mishmash of current technologies, such as Wikispaces, Edmodo and Screencast, rather than development of new technologies. Educators are using disruptive innovation to invert the classroom. Flipping the classroom is a unique use of disruptive innovation that is gaining wide acceptance in the educational community. The basic idea behind the concept is simple: Have students do at home what they normally would do in the classroom, and conversely, do in the classroom what they would do at home. Instead of passively listening to lectures in the classroom with an expert talking at the students, the students view lectures at home through the Internet, freeing classroom time for application and experimentation of the concepts presented in the lecture. From the late 19th century through the 20th century, the educational model in the United States followed the industrial model. This educational model seats student in rows of desks and delivers a standard education aimed at the average student. Many students are simply bored. Enter the flipped classroom. The idea of the flipped classroom most likely originates with the publication of “Effective Grading” in 1998. The authors, Barbara Walvoord and Virginia Johnson, argued that teachers should give first exposure to the course’s concepts prior to class and concentrate on the processing part of learning in the classroom. The model, however, encompasses more than lectures at night and homework during the day. And it is. The instructor creates outside-of-theclassroom activities John through the use of video lectures, slides Kachurick and videos from places Contributing such as YouTube, Khan Columnist Academy or TED. com. It does not matter when the student interacts with the material because the interaction with the material is more important. Additionally, the instructor develops a variety of activities for real-time learning within the classroom. Now, the activities like homework take place in the classroom, and the activities like lectures take place outside the classroom The at-home activities are the starting point, since these are where the student explores concepts and discovers the meaning of these ideas. The student seeks answers to “What?” and “So-What?” questions. Since these are individual activities, they can take place through technology formats delivered via the Internet. The student-to-explore concepts (“What”) uses a range of Internet tools, including audio and video lectures developed by the instructor or found on the Internet. Additionally, the student can engage in on-line chats with fellow students or students from around the world. Engagement with content rich websites enhances the exploration. In seeking the answer to the “So-What” question, the student employs such technologies as blogs, reflective podcasts and vodcasts. Self-testing enables students to determine the strength of their learning. All of these activities come about through disruptive innovation that disrupts the industrial model of education. So what does the teacher do? Well, the teacher is responsible for not only creating the on-line environment, but also the classroom setting where the real-time activities take place. In this in-class learning environment, the student seeks answers to the questions of “Now What?” and “How to Apply the Learning?” Instructors must provide educationally enriching activities for these groups of learners. These group endeavors, termed demonstration, application and experiential engagement, are achieved through creative and personalized projects and presentations, and hands-on activities, simulations, experiments, case studies and applications from the arts. Whether our schools embrace these new educational models or continue the industrial model depends on appropriate funding for technology and the development of educators. The world is changing at a dynamic pace and education must change as rapidly as well. It’s time to flip the classroom.

Trying again in Mideast
Like second marriages, attempts by the United States to promote a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians represent a triumph of hope over experience. But Secretary of State John F. Kerry, who has engaged in his own version of shuttle diplomacy in recent weeks, deserves credit for bringing the two sides back to the bargaining table. He announced Friday that Israeli and Palestinian negotiators would meet in Washington for initial talks within a week or so. Of course, this initiative could unravel. On Sunday, a Palestinian spokesman warned that talks would be “conditioned on many clarifications about core issues” and that several “sticking points” remained unresolved. But Kerry obviously was confident enough to go public with the announcement, and there are indications that he has been able to finesse objections from both sides that have previously blocked the resumption of talks. For example, while Israel may not formally agree to suspend settlement activity in the West Bank, in practice it may be willing to exercise restraint. The outlines of a so-called finalstatus agreement have been obvious for decades and can be found in dusty briefing books dating to the Clinton administration. The Palestinians would finally get an independent state

in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, in exchange for recognizing Israel and relinquishing the dream of a universal “right of return” for the descendants of those displaced when Israel was created after World War II. … It is true that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has always been skeptical of a two-state solution, and that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is a weak and unpopular leader (who does not even control the Gaza Strip, which is ruled by Hamas). But these complications needn’t be fatal to a resumption of negotiations. For the Palestinians, an agreement would mean not only a long-dreamed-of state but an unprecedented infusion of economic and technical assistance. And a deal would allow Israel to remain both a Jewish and a democratic state, and would spare the country from the condemnations its occupation of the West Bank has provoked in Europe and the U.S. — a source of embarrassment and anger for many Israelis. It’s a truism that the United States can’t dictate a peace agreement to the Israelis and Palestinians. But this country possesses unique leverage that administrations of both parties have exerted in the cause of a lasting peace. Kerry’s initiative is in that tradition. We hope it succeeds.


Food stamp use unfair, teen says
My name is McKayla and I am turning 14 soon and I already think it is ridiculous about food stamps and welfare. I understand that the people who are injured or retired need them, but many people take advantage of the help without need. My parents and the rest of the hardworking people have to get money taken out of their paychecks that they worked for to pay for the lazy people who sit around all day doing nothing but watching television and getting free food. In my opinion, it should be the other way around. The people who don’t have jobs should get them. I mean, I also understand that their aren’t many jobs around this

Main St., Wilkes-Barre, PA 18711 area, but you should at least try and show that you have respect. The small jobs that people have and aren’t getting paid well for barely have money and sometimes can’t even get enough money to put food on the table for their own kids. I am not saying that the people who work should get food stamps, but maybe if the food stamps were taken away, you would have a couple bucks in your paycheck and not getting money taken out from the government to give to the liars. Welfare should only be provided to the people who literally can’t work because of injuries or sickness. It gets me so steamed when I go to the supermarket and it is food stamp day and I see a whole bunch of people with food filled to the top of their carts. Anyway, this is my opinion and I am not trying to offend anyone, but I think what I wrote is 100 percent true.

From page 1A The authority publicly sought proposals to demolish the structure, and Michigan-based Dorr Associates was the only company to respond. Authority members expected the demolition would cost the authority, but Dorr offered to pay the authority $500 for the span. The company believed removal costs were less than the estimated $49,000 it would receive in steel scrap value, and the authority approved the sale in July 2007. Dorr Associates later revoked its offer, and the authority voted to accept the company’s withdrawal in September 2007.

Pilots who fly in the area are in contact with the FAA tower at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, he said. “But when weather becomes a factor, and I’m thinking about 9:30, 10 o’clock last night when they said this may have occurred, it was very nasty and visibilities were quite poor,” Zampetti said. “Why the helicopter got into this area, no idea. But any time weather becomes a factor, you’re messing with disaster.” The federal agencies will do a thorough investigation, Zampetti said. “They going to look at the aircraft. They’re going to look at mechanical,” he said. “They’re going to look

2007 sale of bridge
United Sanitation Network Inc., which had submitted a bid to demolish a hazardous railroad trestle in Edwardsville, stepped up and offered to buy the bridge for the same $500, and the authority publicly approved that sale in November 2007. United Sanitation is listed at the address of one of Glodzik’s properties on Foote Avenue, Duryea. The $500 check to the authority was signed by Glodzik, doing business as LAG. County Community Development Director Andrew Reilly, who also serves as interim redevelopment authority director, said a bill of sale transferred the bridge to Glodzik. Though there was an understanding Glodzik would tear down the structure, Reilly found no contract stipulating the demolition must be completed or establishing a deadline. Glodzik was never required to record a deed or pay property taxes on the bridge because the county considered it personal property that did not include land, officials say. County Flood Protection Authority members questioned the status of the bridge removal in October 2011 because the span sustained further damage from record Susquehanna flooding a few weeks earlier. Officials said two stone pillars supporting the bridge had

eroded, and debris often caught on the piers, causing back-up. The Redevelopment Authority solicitor sent a letter to Glodzik that month conveying the flood authority’s concern that the structure “is in danger of collapse.” Reilly said there is no record of a reply from Glodzik in authority files. Glodzik could not be reached for comment Friday. In August 2012, Glodzik told a reporter he was negotiating a deal to sell the bridge to a scrap company. He said his engineers inspected the bridge and concluded it was not going to fall. “That bridge will be there a hundred years from now,” he said at the time. County council last week approved a $10 million federal flood recovery project list that included $614,600 to demolish the bridge. Reilly said the amount is based on an engineer’s estimate. Former county engineer Jim Brozena estimated the tear-down at a minimum $500,000 a year ago, largely because a causeway

must be built on the river to remove the bridge. If the project costs less, the difference will be allocated to other flood recovery projects approved by council, Reilly said. The county could require demolition contractors to provide any salvage income to the county or allow contractors to factor the scrap value into their bids to reduce the county’s up-front expense, he said. County assistant solicitor Stephen Menn said he is researching the legal requirements to demolish the privatelyowned property and the possibility of filing liens against Glodzik’s properties in an attempt to recoup at least some of the demolition expense. Glodzik owns at least five properties — three in Wilkes-Barre and two in Duryea, records show. In addition to the state lien, he owes property taxes from 2011 and 2012 on the Duryea properties. His property on Morgan Drive in Wilkes-Barre also is in foreclosure proceedings.

It’s so in depth, not just to solve what happened in this accident, but to prevent future accidents like this from happening,” he said. Zampetti said he was told by Civil Air Patrol that the wreckage was

located by tracking an emergency locator beacon. The electronic beacon sent out a signal that search crews on the ground honed in on, he explained. The electronic locator beacon is designed so that is triggered by impact, he said. “It’s a safety device for locating downed aircraft,” he said.

From page 1A such as Pennsylvania, Colorado, Arkansas and North Dakota. Previously inaccessible deposits of shale oil and gas have been unlocked by fracking, a process in which large amounts of water and sand along with chemicals are injected deep underground to break apart the rock. One of the biggest promoters of the Marcellus Shale drilling boom in Pennsylvania says that while fracking opponents have exaggerated some risks, the industry hasn’t always handled key issues well, either. Terry Engelder, a Penn State geologist, cited the highly publicized case in Dimock, Susquehanna County, where 18 families began complaining in 2009 that nearby drilling had polluted their water supply with methane gas and toxic chemicals. State environmental regulators ultimately agreed, imposing large fines on Houston-based Cabot Oil & Gas Co, and temporarily banning the company from drilling in a 9-squaremile area around the town. Cabot paid the fines but denied responsibility for the contamination. Engelder said at least some of the industry’s missteps have been unintentional and come from inexperience. In Dimock, the land had so many layers of rock and the drilling boom was so new that the industry and regulators struggled to understand and explain the problems with the water wells, Engelder said. Cabot spokesman George Stark said that in retrospect, the company realized the geology around Dimock was “highly unusual” and pre-drilling tests for methane would have helped determine which wells had natural contamination of methane. While many issues were at play, Engelder said, experts came to believe the well construction techniques used in the early years of Pennsylvania’s drilling boom “were just inadequate to the task” of protecting groundwater in that area. Regulations for well cement jobs were later strengthened considerably, but by that time, anger and negative publicity had started building, and the damage was done. Engelder and Hofmeister say that to the industry’s credit, the drilling boom has brought many benefits. Many communities haven’t had major problems and welcome the jobs and the royalty payments that can reach hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars for a single landowner. But Engelder said the industry can’t just focus on positives. “There never will be a risk-free gas industry in Pennsylvania, just like there never will be risk-free driving a car,” he said. Engelder said he believes the industry should work more closely with opponents and give them detailed explanations of the geology, the risks and the benefits of drilling. “I would do whatever it took to try and engage these people over a period of time,” he said. But some industry critics are skeptical. “You can’t change the spots on a leopard,” said Jim Switzer, a Dimock resident who says drilling ruined his water. “They would spend a billion dollars to say they weren’t responsible for something rather than spend a couple million dollars of taking care of who they screwed.” Another drilling critic who battled Colorado’s Encana Oil & Gas for 10 years over its work around his property said he was angered not only by noise and pollution but also by industry attitudes. “Those people moved into our valley like a conquering army,” said Thomas Thompson, who complained that the heavy equipment that accompanied drilling in Rifle, Colo., created endless dust storms that caused health problems for him and his wife. Thompson said he’s never said the U.S. shouldn’t develop natural gas resources, just that it should be done responsibly. After years of asking government agencies and the industry to address the problems, Thompson and his wife relocated to Texas and settled a lawsuit over his claims. The company said Thompson essentially “did not like having oil and gas activity on his property.” “We realize that this is sometimes the case, particularly if an individual doesn’t have mineral rights and receives no economic benefit from our presence and activity,” Encana spokesman Doug Hock said in an email. “Generally, we’re able to reach some sort of accommodation. In other cases, such as this one, it’s not possible.” Despite the anger from some critics, Hofmeister thinks many in the industry are “rather unemotional” about the opposition. “It’s a big world,” Hofmeister said. “The industry will move on to where it will be successful.”

From page 1A he’s suggesting that the minarets and dome, and possibly the barrel vault roof, remain to cover an open space below that could be used for performances, farmers markets, flea markets or any number of uses. His idea calls for “selective demolition” of the existing stage area and filling in the basement. It would “preserve the post card image as well as create a very interesting outdoor covered stage,” he said. Time is not on the building’s side, and a decision on its future should be made in the next year or two. “I’m not sure what the life expectancy is,” he said. “In some period of time something will fall off that.” The building is owned by the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Business and Industry, which bought it for $992,000 in 2005 from the Irem Temple A.A.O.N.M.S. The chamber’s goal was to put it in safekeeping until a new use was determined and funding could be secured. Calls left with Bill Moore, chief executive of the chamber, and Frank Joanlanne, chairman of the board of the chamber, were not returned Friday. Earlier this year the chamber unsuccessfully sought $2.4 million in local share gambling funds to bring the building up to code for occupancy. Ross Mccarty worked on the funding when he was former vice president of real estate with the chamber and hasn’t stopped pursuing other sources. Mccarty, of WilkesBarre, has been critical of the chamber for not making the building a priority. “It’s the only asset that they have that they are in control of that they can do something with,” he said. His efforts are focused on saving and restoring the building. “I just don’t want to see the building crumble, because that would be criminal,” Mccarty said. He has created a Facebook page in support of his efforts and been in touch with “some influential people from the area” as well. The building has even attracted the attention of two photographers from France who want access to it. They’ve photographed historic theaters across the country. Some are in ruins and some have been converted into stores and for other uses. “Don’t ask me how the Irem Temple got on their radar screen in Paris,” Mccarty said. He said he’s optimistic his work isn’t in vain. “With each additional piece of exposure or public awareness that’s a step in the right direction,” he said.

From page 1A people free on bail or probation wear ankle bracelets that can sound an alarm if they leave home without permission, fail to show up for work or linger near a playground or school. To assess these monitoring programs, The Associated Press queried a sample of corrections, parole and probation agencies across the U.S. for alarms logged in a one-month period and for figures regarding the number of people monitored and the number of officers watching them. The AP also reviewed audits, state and federal reports and studies done of several of these programs, which detailed problems that included officers failing to investigate alarms or take action when offenders racked up multiple violations. Twenty-one agencies that responded to the AP inquiry logged 256,408 alarms for 26,343 offenders in the month of April alone. It adds up for those doing the monitoring. The 230 parole officers with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice handled 944 alerts per day in April. The Delaware Department of Correction, which has 31 field officers, handled 514 alarms per day. “When we first introduced this technology … officers thought they were just going to go play golf for the day,” said Jock Waldo, a spokesman for Boulder, Colo.-based BI Inc., which produces about half the bracelets used in the U.S. However, the devices require scrutiny of the vast amount of data they produce, Waldo said. Sorting through alerts, and deciding which are serious enough to merit a rapid response, can be fraught with peril.

Newman is Indy’s leading man
AP Auto Racing Writer

Driver completes childhood dream with victory in Brickyard 400
INDIANAPOLIS — Ryan Newman fulfilled the childhood dream of so many who grew up in Indiana — winning at storied Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Newman, from South Bend, ended a 49-race losing streak with Sunday’s victory at the Brickyard, and he did it by beating Jimmie Johnson. Again. Newman set a NASCAR track record in knocking Johnson off the pole in qualifying, then used a fast final pit stop Sunday to snatch the win from the four-time Indianapolis winner. The two were the class of the field — they combined to lead 118 of the 160 laps — but it was Johnson who dominated the race and appeared to be just a bit better. But Johnson pitted from the lead with 27 laps remaining and it was a slow final stop for the Hendrick Motorsports crew. Newman pitted after that and took only two tires to move into the lead after the green-flag stops cycled through the field. The closest Johnson would get to him again was when he paid a congratulatory visit to Newman in Victory Lane. Newman was remarkably composed as he took the checkered flag and in Victory Lane. “I don’t realize it yet. It’s a dream come true,” he said. “It can’t hit you all at once, it’s not good enough. It will take a week or so for it to sink in.” The victory comes as Newman is looking for a job. See NEWMAN | 4B

‘Almost like old times’

Vinny Scarantino will fight Friday in Scranton
For The Times Leader

NEW YORK — Derek Jeter was feeling nostalgic. He homered for a big hit. He took part in Hideki Matsui’s retirement ceremony. Then he watched Alfonso Soriano running up the first base line with his arms held out wide, flashing that electric grin. “A lot of great memories here with Sori,” he said, “and it was almost like old times.” The newly reacquainted duo created another memory Sunday. Jeter connected on the first pitch he saw to give the Yankees a jolt in his return from the disabled list and Soriano made the captain a winner with a game-ending single that lifted New York over the Tampa Bay Rays 6-5 Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep. Playing with Jeter for the first time since being re-acquired by New York from the Cubs on Friday, Soriano homered among his first four hits with the Yankees and drove in three runs. “I remember from 2001 to 2003, nothing changed,” Soriano said. “We get old but, more important, he loves the game, I love the game.” The 37-year-old Soriano and the 39-year-old Jeter were teammates from 1999 until Soriano was traded

to Texas for Alex Rodriguez after the 2003 season, but they hadn’t played together this season because Jeter was still out with a strained quadriceps. The Yankees lost Soriano’s first two games and he was 0 for 8. But Jeter was activated from the DL for the second time this month

and homered against Matt Moore in the first, sending a drive to rightcenter that ended the Yankees’ ninegame homerless drought. He went 2 for 4 and scored twice. “He’s a movie, that’s what he is,” manager Joe Girardi said. Soriano gave it a happy ending.

Brett Gardner drew a leadoff walk from Jake McGee (2-3) in the ninth. McGee then switched belts on his uniform before facing Jeter, threw a wild pitch and received a visit from manager Joe Maddon. See YANKEES | 4B

Vinny Scarantino has a name to try to live up to when he steps into the boxing ring. “I was named after Vinny Pazienza,” said Scarantino, a 17-yearold who will enter his senior year at Pittston Area in the fall. “He was a really, really tough fighter Scarantino – a five-time world champ. He’s kind of who I base things off of. “I try to be like him and always be exciting in every fight.” Scarantino has made contact with the Italian-American fighter from Rhode Island and keeps in touch with him through the mail. “I mostly fight like an Italian fighter,” Scarantino said. “I come in for a hard fight every single time – rushing in, just coming in to fight always.” Scarantino made his amateur debut in Scranton, but has spent most of his nine sanctioned fights going against opponents in their hometowns. He is looking forward to concluding the Novice portion of his amateur career back in Scranton Friday night at the Hilton Convention Center at 7. Summer Thunder, a pro-am card produced by Northeast Boxing, will include six fighters who train in Pittston.

sounded, the Americans on the bench raced onto the field to join their teammates. Several players jumped up and down, and hugs and high-fives were exchanged. Coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who watched the game from a luxury box after being suspended for his tirade over the officiating in the semifinal, quickly made his way down to the field, pumping his fists in the air as he walked. The Panamians, meanwhile, could only watch in disappointment. They came into the game full of confidence after beating Mexico twice during the tournament, but

never really threatened the United States. The only downer on the day for the Americans was another injury to Stuart Holden’s right knee. He collapsed to the ground after colliding with another player in the first half and grabbed at his right knee. He was able to walk off the field on his own, but U.S. Soccer later said he had sprained the knee and it would need further evaluation. Holden missed almost 2 ½ years because of injuries to his right knee, only returning to the U.S. squad in late May. The U.S. had been the class of the Gold Cup, outscoring

opponents 20-4 in the tournament. Klinsmann used a mostly young team, and its confidence appeared to grow with every victory. Though Klinsmann and his players had insisted his onegame suspension wouldn’t change anything — “We’re going to use it a little bit as a rallying cry,” Landon Donovan said Saturday. “We want to win the trophy for him.” — they lacked their usual sharpness early on. Donovan and Eddie Johnson both struggled to get free, covered closely by Panama’s dogged defense. See GOAL | 4B

DETROIT — Jhonny Peralta’s grand slam capped an eight-run sixth inning for Detroit, and the Tigers overcame Miguel Cabrera’s ejection in a 12-4 win over the collapsing Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. Cabrera was tossed while batting with the bases loaded in the third and manager Jim Leyland was ejected, too. Detroit still got plenty of additional chances against a Philadelphia team that stumbled to its eighth straight loss. In the sixth, the Tigers scored eight runs on only two hits. The Phillies made three errors and walked three batters in the inning. Rick Porcello (8-6) allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings to win his fourth straight start. Red Sox 5, Orioles 0 BALTIMORE — Jon Lester allowed four hits over seven innings, David Ortiz went 4 for 4 with his 20th home run and Boston earned its first series win over Baltimore in two years. Mike Napoli had two doubles and an RBI for the Red Sox, who took two of three in the duel between AL East foes. Boston had lost six straight series to Baltimore since a four-game sweep in July 2011. Indians 6, Rangers 0 CLEVELAND — Ubaldo

Jimenez pitched eight scoreless innings and Cleveland shut out Texas for the second straight game. Jason Kipnis’ two-out single in the fifth broke a scoreless tie. Yan Gomes’ RBI single and Michael Bourn’s two-run double added three runs in the sixth as the Indians, who have won four straight, completed their first three-game sweep at home over Texas since Aug. 12-14, 1980. Blue Jays 2, Astros 1 Toronto — Colby Rasmus drove in Emilio Bonifacio with a game-winning single in the ninth inning to carry Toronto past Houston. Royals 4, White Sox 2 CHICAGO — Alex Gordon hit a two-run homer in the 12th inning and Kansas City beat Chicago for its sixth straight victory. Mariners 6, Twins 4 SEATTLE — Nick Franklin homered twice, including a three-run shot, and Seattle held off Minnesota for the victory. Athletics 10, Angels 6 OAKLAND, Calif. — Yoenis Cespedes drove in four runs on his most productive day since winning the Home Run Derby, and Oakland rallied from five runs down to beat Los Angeles.

NEW YORK — Alex Rodriguez is expected to fight any suspension imposed by Major League Baseball, a source said Sunday, as it now appears suspensions are imminent for the Yankees third baseman and others in the Biogenesis probe. The length of a possible suspension for Rodriguez — which reportedly has ranged from 100 games to a lifetime ban — remains unclear. MLB has the ability to seek whatever punishment it believes would be approved by an arbitrator, according to baseball’s Basic Agreement. Rodriguez, who is recovering from a Grade 1 quadriceps strain, was not spotted Sunday at the Yankees’ minorleague complex in Tampa. He is expected to be there until at least Thursday before beginning a rehab assignment. MLB’s disciplinary actions obviously could interfere with those plans — or not, depending on how Rodriguez and his advisers choose to proceed. Rodriguez can appeal any disciplinary action by MLB. Under the Basic Agreement regarding punishment for the use of performance-enhancing drugs, players are suspended 50 games for a first positive test and 100 games for a second and get a lifetime ban for a third. “He will fight any suspension vigorously with evidence,” a source said Sunday. The New York Post first reported Sunday that Rodriguez faces a suspension in the coming week and might be banned until the 2015 season. On Thursday, Rodriguez reiterated during an interview on WFAN that his representatives have not been working with MLB on a plea agreement, which is what Ryan Braun of the Brewers did a week ago.

WASHINGTON — Wilson Ramos hit a grand slam and rookie right-hander Taylor Jordan had six strong innings for his first major league win to lead the Washington Nationals to a 14-1 rout of the New York Mets on Sunday. The Nationals won their third game in a row and fourth in five to salvage a tumultuous 11-game homestand. They lost the first six games after the All-Star break, fired hitting coach Rick Eckstein last Monday and demoted former closer Drew Storen to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday. Mets right-hander Carlos Torres (1-2) could not build on his solid start last week against the Atlanta Braves. Cubs 2, Giants 1 SAN FRANCISCO — Travis Wood pitched a four-hitter over seven innings and had a home run among his two hits in helping the Chicago Cubs complete a three-game sweep in San Francisco for the first time in 20 years. Welington Castillo also homered for the Cubs, who won their third straight and fifth of seven. Dodgers 1, Reds 0 LOS ANGELES — Yasiel Puig homered with two outs in the 11th inning to give Los Angeles the victory over Cincinnati. Cincinnati pitchers set a franchise record with 20 strikeouts. Puig, Adrian Gonzalez, Hanley Ramirez and Tim Federowicz each fanned three times as the Dodgers established their highest single-game total for strike-

outs since the franchise moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles following the 1957 season. Marlins 3, Pirates 2 MIAMI — Jose Fernandez had a team rookie record 13 strikeouts in a pitching duel with Gerrit Cole, leading Miami past Pittsburgh. Fernandez (7-5) allowed five hits and two runs in eight innings. The 20-year-old AllStar right-hander walked none and threw 97 pitches, 74 for strikes. Rockies 6, Brewers 5 DENVER — Troy Tulowitzki homered early, then doubled to start a tworun rally in the eighth inning that propelled Colorado past Milwaukee. Michael Cuddyer, Dexter Fowler and Corey Dickerson also homered for the Rockies, who salvaged a split of their 10-game homestand. Padres 1, Diamondbacks 0 PHOENIX — Tyson Ross outpitched All-Star Patrick Corbin with eight dominant innings and San Diego beat Arizona to close out its first winning road trip of the season. Braves 5, Cardinals 2 ATLANTA — Jason Heyward homered and drove in two runs to help the Atlanta Braves beat St. Louis, capping their first three-game sweep of the Cardinals at home in 10 years. The Braves broke a 2-all tie with two runs in the sixth inning off rookie Shelby Miller (10-7) and two relievers.

LOUISVILLE, K.Y. — After recording just four hits and one run in the first five innings, the RailRiders compiled eight hits and eight runs in the final four innings as Scranton/Wilkes-Barre blasted the Louisville Bats 9-2 Sunday at Louisville Slugger Field. The RailRiders captured the lead in the first inning when Dan Johnson hit into a fielder’s choice, scoring Adonis Garcia to give Scranton/Wilkes-Barre a 1-0 advantage.

tacked on an RBI double to give Scranton/Wilkes-Barre a seven-run advantage. The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre bullpen secured the victory, allowing just three hits and no runs in the last five innings of the game. Josh Spence earned the win on the mound, allowing one hit and striking out two in two innings of work. The RailRiders will try to complete a four-game sweep of Louisville at 7:05 p.m. today at Louisville Slugger Field.

Greater Wyoming Area falls in state semis
run ended in the semifinals of the 9-10 softball state playoffs at Caln Little League Sunday with a 5-0 loss to Newberry. Nicole Filinskie smacked two singles, while Evan Freeman chipped in one single for Greater Wyoming Area. Kari Melberger recorded eight strikeouts in loss. In the state tournament, Greater Wyoming Area went 3-0 in pool play to advance to the semifinal matchup, and finished the season ranked third in the state.

THORNDALE — Lily Harden logged three singles as Greater Wyoming Area’s

From page 1B The decision: walk Jeter intentionally. “I don’t want to name the manufacturer right now, don’t want to cause any kind of disgrace or concern there, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen that,” Maddon said of McGee’s belt, which broke at a crucial moment in the game. After Robinson Cano struck out, Soriano hit a sharp bouncer up the middle for the win. He was mobbed by his teammates and doused with a liquid during a postgame interview. Mariano Rivera (2-2), the Yankees’ fourth reliever, got three groundball outs in the ninth. Rookie Wil Myers homered twice and drove in four runs against beleaguered Yankees starter Phil Hughes and Kelly Johnson had an RBI double, but the AL East leaders lost for only the fourth time in 25 games. Ichiro Suzuki had four hits and drove in a run on fellow Japanese star Matsui’s bobblehead day. Matsui signed his retirement papers in an onfield ceremony before the game in front of the third sellout at Yankee Stadium this season, with Jeter standing alongside him. “This is Matsui’s day,” Jeter said, “so everyone needs to focus on him.” Jeter’s homer was the Yankees’ first long ball by a right-hander since June 25, and his presence appeared to give the team an immediate lift. “Just wave the magic wand,” Andy Pettitte said. “It was cool.” After he homered and gave a quick wave of his cap from the dugout steps, Cano singled and Soriano followed with

his first hit with New York in nine atbats. Vernon Wells had a sacrifice fly and Suzuki had RBI single to make it 3-0. Jeter started at shortstop for the first time this year. He was the designated hitter on July 11 when he returned from rehabbing the ankle he first broke during the opener of the AL Championship Series in October. He was sent right back to the disabled list when he strained his right quad running out a grounder. The Yankees won just four of 12 during his most recent absence. “He’s the face of the organization,” Soriano said. “When he’s on the field we can feel the energy.”

Jeter’s take: “It was fun — I’m tired. I worked hard to try to get back on the field.” Johnson, who drove in the run in Tampa Bay’s 1-0 win Saturday, pulled Tampa within two on a double in the second and Tampa took the lead in the third. Evan Longoria and James Loney singled with one out, then Myers laced a shot to deep left for a 4-3 edge. But in the bottom half, Jeter opened the inning by lining a single that glanced off Johnson’s glove behind second base. Girardi was concerned Jeter would overdo it on the bases, but the 13-time All-Star only needed another easy jog to score his second run. Soriano sent him into a trot, eking a homer over the right-field wall just out of the reach of a leaping Myers. “If I had one more step, I feel like I could catch that ball,” Myers said. Myers put another ball of his own out of everyone’s reach in the fifth, an oppositefield shot to right for the first multihomer game of his career. Plagued by home runs throughout his career, Hughes has allowed 20 this season. Often mentioned in trade rumors, Hughes yielded five runs and nine hits in four-plus innings and left to a vociferous Bronx cheer. He was lifted after walking Matt Joyce in the fifth, and the New York bullpen shut down the Rays the rest of the way. Preston Claiborne, Boone Logan, David Robertson and Rivera combined on five innings of one-hit ball. Moore’s six-start winning streak ended when he was lifted after five innings with the score tied at 5. Moore allowed five runs and eight hits.

Sprint Cup Series driver Ryan Newman celebrates after winning the Brickyard 400 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday.

From page 1B Stewart-Haas Racing has signed Kevin Harvick to join the team next season, and team co-owner Tony Stewart informed Newman two weeks ago he won’t be brought back in 2014. It didn’t change the post-race mood, as Stewart hustled to Victory Lane, lifted Newman from behind and the two shared a long embrace. “He just had an awesome weekend,” Stewart said. “I kept looking up the board and watching and I was scared to ask where he was at and how big of a lead he had. I didn’t want to jinx him. Just really proud of him — he’s a great teammate and an even better friend.” Johnson, the Sprint Cup Series points leader who was hoping to tie Formula One’s Michael Schumacher as the only five-time winners in Indy history, finished 2.657 seconds behind Newman in second. “There’s definitely disappointment there, but that’s racing. It happens,” Johnson said. “We win as a team, lose as a team. There’s been some late race mistakes on my behalf that have taken race wins away from us. Granted, not a major event like this. We still ended up second. “We have a lot to be proud of over the course of the weekend. We’ll do the best to let it roll off our shoulders by tomorrow afternoon.” Kasey Kahne, Johnson’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate, was third and Stewart was fourth as Chevrolet swept the top four spots. All four cars were also powered by Hendrick Motorsports. “We had pretty good power all day long, there were several scenarios where I noticed it,” Stewart said. “That’s what you expect from Hendrick.” Matt Kenseth was fifth in a Toyota and followed by Hendrick’s Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon, as all four Hendrick entries landed inside the top seven. Earnhardt rallied from a loose wheel on the opening run of the race to grab his top-10 finish. “I knew it was loose,” said Earnhardt, adding it was a no-brainer to pit. “You have a wheel falling off, you have something serious happening. Come in, it’s dangerous staying out there. You can hit the wall, or wreck something, or wreck some other people. I don’t want to do that. It is a long race. We had an early chance to fix that, and that is fine. It gave us an opportunity to try some different strategies, and it worked out for us.” Joey Logano was eighth in a Ford, and followed by Juan Pablo Montoya and Kyle Busch, who picked up his first career win at the Brickyard in Saturday’s Nationwide Series race. NASCAR’s 20th running at the historic Brickyard wasn’t the most exciting race — there were three cautions, for stalled cars or debris, and no accidents or spins — and the field spread out into single-file racing and passing wasn’t easy. Montoya complained at one point over his radio that attempting to pass another car only cost him position on track. “It’s just Indy, it’s always hard to pass,” Kahne shrugged. “The competition’s close, so you can get runs and then you can kill your run a little bit if that guy runs a certain part of the race track. So the guys that know where to put their car when a car being them is faster, it’s tough to pass them.” The in-race intrigue came via varied strategies among the teams as they all tried different methods to steal a good finish in a race that logged as the fastest Brickyard in history at 2 hours, 36 minutes and 22 seconds. ”Overall I thought it was an exciting race,” said Kenseth. “I thought there was a lot of different strategies there at the end and the two fastest cars ended up battling for the win. It wasn’t any harder (to pass) than normal. It’s just always hard to pass here.”

From page 1B “You as an individual coach have a responsibility to try to give those players who put themselves at risk and in harm’s way a chance to achieve success, and that goes for universities and professional teams, as well,” Parcells said. “I know I preached that to every organization and to every coaching staff I ever had. These guys deserve a chance to win, and we have to give it to them.” Fellow Hall of Famer Harry Carson was already on the Giants’ roster when Parcells was hired. Despite being one of the best linebackers in the league, Carson said Parcells didn’t hesitate to tell him he had bad habits as a middle linebacker and that he could be better, and then riding him on it. When Carson was at his lowest point, Parcells built him back up and made him better. “Bill is not for everybody,” Carson said. “But he is a coach who knows his stuff and he was able to implement what he wanted to do with players like me, who were willing to bite the bullet and be patient with him and not take it personally or be bruised by the criticism he might level at you. His criticism could be brutal, but he knew what buttons to push for each player.” Parcells also knew he wanted hardnosed players who knew their roles. He never asked them to do things they couldn’t do. “He gets his players’ expectations so high, they don’t have a choice but to succeed,” Cowboys tight end Jason Witten said. “He did that year after year after year.” Despite living on the edge off the field, Taylor respected Parcells no-nonsense style. “Don’t get me wrong the guy could coach his (butt) off and you gotta remember that was one helluva staff, but what struck me in the early days about Bill was his ability to motivate,” Taylor said in statement released through his agent, Mark Lepselter. “He’d always try to tweak me and I’d give it right back but I knew he knew that I was a little different.” Parcells was a little different, too. He was a Jersey guy, even before Tony Soprano or Bruce Springsteen made that popular. Coming from a family that by his own admission was confrontational, he loved the give and take. Giants coach Tom Coughlin, who worked under Parcells from 1988-90, recalled being dragged to a deli one morning during training camp in his first season. “As soon as he opens the door of the coffee shop it’s like old home week,” Coughlin said. “He’s busting everybody’s chops in the deli and he’s busting their chops and it’s back and forth, back and forth. It was an interesting scene, it’s like the way he is when he gets on a roll with people. He’s got one comment right after another and he’s having a good time with it and you might give him a little feedback so he can build on it.” Parcells cared about his people and let them know, Coughlin said. As important as Parcells’ congratulatory calls after Coughlin won Super Bowls with the Giants, Coughlin also recalls the call he got from him after being fired in Jacksonville. It was just as important.


From page 1B But they found their rhythm in the second half, creating several chances. The best came in the 56th minute, DaMarcus Beasley chipped a ball into Donovan, who was in front of the goal at the near post. Donovan got his head on the ball, but not at the angle he wanted and it flew wide of the net. As the crowd groaned, Donovan threw back his head and Beasley swatted the red flag in the corner. The Americans were still scratching to create something — anything — when Shea replaced Joe Corona in

the 68th minute. He didn’t waste any time making his presence felt as the Americans pushed forward again. Alejandro Bedoya fed Donovan, but he muffed the shot. The ball continued to roll past Panama’s Roberto Chen and on toward the net. Parked inches from the goal line, Shea stuck out his left foot and tapped the ball past goalkeeper Jaime Penedo for his second international goal. The Americans had a chance to double the lead in the 84th minute when Shea fed a wideopen Eddie Johnson 2 yards from the goal. But Johnson couldn’t finish it, sending the ball flying over the cross bar.

Chase Wood, Dawry Aquino, Jose Castillo, Will Feliciano and Rocky Marzan also train at the gym and are scheduled to have amateur bouts on the Summer Thunder card. The fight will serve as a transition for Vinny Scarantino. It is his last bout in the Novice Class and he has already made tentative arrangements to make his Open Class debut against the same opponent Aug. 17 in Reading. Reading’s Christian Oliveneia and Scarantino each have nine Novice fights already. They are scheduled to meet each other, then move to Open Class and fight again. Scarantino normally fights at 119 pounds and Oliveneia at 130, but they are set to meet at 125. The move up to a higher level of amateur competition is part of Scarantino’s plan for “going pro around 2016.” Scarantino’s training includes sparring with Jerome Rodriguez, an Allentown light welterweight who is off to a 4-0-1 start in his professional career.

Colts ready for 2nd round with Pagano, Luck
AP Sports Writer

ANDERSON, Ind. — Andrew Luck and Chuck Pagano walked onto the practice field Sunday with new perspectives about training camp. This time, the Colts’ second-year quarterback knew where to go, what to do and how the offense should be run. This time, the Colts second-year coach was looking good and feeling fine. A lot has changed in the 12 months since Luck came to Anderson University as Peyton Manning’s replacement and Pagano spent the summer trying to rebuild the Colts. Now, the message is all about building on the foundation Indianapolis laid in 2012.

“We can sit there and read the press clippings and pat ourselves on the back and certainly get complacent. We’re not going to get complacent,” P a g a n o said after Pagano the Colts wrapped up their first two practices. “You get complacent in this league, you go right back to where you were. It’s kind of unfinished business for us.” When the Colts were previously on this Division III campus, about 25 miles northeast of Indianapolis, they were almost universally considered the NFL’s worst team. Players were so disgusted at falling to No. 32

in the power rankings that they made T-shirts as a daily reminder that they wanted to prove the doubters wrong. Back then, Luck was still cramming to become an NFL quarterback after missing most of the team’s offseason workouts because of his classes at Stanford, and Pagano was trying to fight through the sluggish feeling and unexplainable bruises — the first symptoms of leukemia. By early October, Luck was settling into his new role, Pagano had taken a leave of absence as he underwent chemotherapy and interim coach Bruce Arians and the Colts veterans were busy leading Indy back to respectability. When Pagano returned to the sideline in late December, the Colts had

already clinched a playoff spot, Luck was putting the final touches on one of the best rookie seasons in NFL history and Arians had all but sewn up the Coach of the Year Award. The expectations have only grown in Round 2. On Sunday, the Colts showed off their new T-shirt — a photo of the Lombardi Trophy with the words “Hoist It” underneath. “We set that bar so high, we set the stage so high,” Pro Bowl receiver Reggie Wayne said after arriving at camp via helicopter Saturday. “There’s still not a lot of buzz about us. We’ve got to prove people wrong, got to show them what we can do, what we’re made out of.” It starts with Luck, who

will run his second offense in two years. The good news is that he’s working again with a coordinator, Pep Hamilton, and a system that the two ran at Stanford. His familiarity has turned him from a pupil into a teacher for the rest of his teammates. Indianapolis’ offseason goal was to protect Luck better this season. They signed two offensive linemen who were veteran free agents, drafted two more and are hoping the combination of quicker throws and a more efficient ground game that Luck won’t have to endure nearly as many hits as last year. If all goes well, Luck may not have to throw the 681 passes he did in the regular-season and playoffs, either.

Top pick Cooper agrees to contract
GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Arizona Cardinals have reached a contract agreement with first-round draft pick Jonathan Cooper. The four-year deal is worth about $14.5 million, the maximum allowed under the NFL collective bargaining agreement for Cooper as the seventh pick overall. The 6-foot-2, 311-pound guard from North Carolina missed the first two days of training camp, when the team worked out in shorts. He was en route to Arizona and also missed Sunday’s practice, the team’s first in pads. He was expected to practice Monday. Cooper had worked out at left guard with the starting unit through the offseason.

Center Koppen out with injury

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Center Dan Koppen appeared to seriously injure his left knee Sunday in 9-on-7 drills, just five weeks after rejoining the Denver Broncos following J.D. Walton’s setback in his comeback from ankle surgery. Koppen, an 11-year veteran who played his first nine seasons with the Patriots, was caught in a pile early in the workout and was carted off the field and taken for medical tests. Manny Ramirez, who took most of the snaps at center during Denver’s offseason practices, stepped in for Koppen, whose teams have gone 10828 in games he has started. Koppen’s injury is the latest setback to Peyton Manning’s patchedup pocket of protection. Left guard Zane Beadles was the only starting lineman to come out of last season unscathed.

Pitta has surgery, out for year
OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta is lost for the season after undergoing hip surgery, a major blow to the team’s bid to repeat as Super Bowl champions. Pitta was hurt Saturday, the third day of training camp, when he collided with safety James Ihedigbo in the back of the end zone while going for a pass from Joe Flacco. He was operated on Saturday night. “Dennis out for the year,” coach John Harbaugh said Sunday. “It’s the type of thing that he’s not going to be able to come back from this year. There’s enough damage in there.”

PHILADELPHIA — They grilled burgers, drank beers and tossed footballs around the parking lots as if it were an ordinary Sunday during the NFL season. Hours before the Philadelphia Eagles put pads on for the first time under new coach Chip Kelly, fans tailgated outside and waited for the Linc to open its gates Sunday. More than 65,000 tickets were distributed for practice, and nearly half the people showed up. The estimated crowd of 30,000 was a club record for practice. As former NBA MVP and Philadelphia 76ers star Allen Iverson famously once said: “Practice! Not a game! Practice!” That’s how excited they are about Kelly and their beloved Eagles. “The fans are phenomenal,” general manager Howie Roseman said. “It’s unbelievable how they support us.” People came from all over the area, including a couple vacationing from Texas and a family from North Carolina visiting friends in Philadelphia. “We can’t wait to see the Chip Kelly offense,” said John Sharleton, a longtime Eagles fan now living near

Houston. “Once we heard we can get free tickets to see the first practice, it made our trip.” Wide-eyed kids sat in the stands trying to figure out exactly what was happening on the field. Kelly doesn’t run a typical NFL practice. He has stations set up for the various positions and loud music blaring through the speakers. Practice is fast-paced and appears hectic to first-time observers. The Eagles had 11 on 11 scrimmages without tackling, and fans got to see quarterbacks Michael Vick, Nick Foles and Matt Barkley compete for the starting job. After a bunch of running plays — Kelly certainly is no Andy Reid when it comes to pass-run ratio — Foles threw a deep pass to loud cheers. It fell incomplete. Dennis Dixon made a big connection when he hit DeSean Jackson for a touchdown on a deep pass in a 1 on 1 drill. An injured Todd Herremans signaled the TD. Herremans tweaked his right knee, but seemed fine. “It was like spring ball in college,” defensive end Brandon Graham said of the atmosphere at practice. Some players weren’t sure what to expect after last year’s disastrous 4-12 season. “It’s really nice to see the support,

especially after what happened last year,” tight end Brent Celek said. “But it’s a new year and I’m glad to see everybody in Philadelphia is supporting us.” The Eagles started the festivities by introducing several players on Alumni Day. Hall of Famer Tommy McDonald, Donovan McNabb, Brian Dawkins, Brian Westbrook and Mike Quick were among the former Eagles in attendance. McNabb, who will officially retire as an Eagle on Monday, drew the loudest cheers, slightly edging Dawkins. That was surprising considering Dawkins is one of the most popular athletes to ever play in Philadelphia and fans have always been divided in their feelings toward McNabb. “The reception was great,” McNabb said. “It was awesome. I enjoyed being back.” Kelly, wearing a white visor, walked onto the field to a nice ovation along with the red-shirted quarterbacks. He exchanged hugs and handshakes with some of the former players and was down to business once practice started. The Eagles lured Kelly away from Oregon after firing Reid on Dec. 31. Kelly had tremendous success in college, leading the Ducks to a 46-7 record in four seasons and turning the program into a national powerhouse.


Hill: Suspension was for marijuana
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — New York Giants safety Will Hill says the recent four-game suspension imposed on him by the NFL was for using marijuana last season. The second-year player, who made the team as a free agent in 2012, said Sunday that the league didn’t impose a penalty immediately because Hill tried to fight it. He was also suspended for four games early last season for using a performance-enhancing drug, which he and the team said was Adderall. The 23-year-old Hill would miss the opening four games of the season if he makes the team. He said he has not used any banned substances this year. He recently underwent drug rehabilitation in March and April in Boston, and followed that with outpatient meetings in New Jersey.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — For all the money Tennessee spent this offseason, how well the Titans fare this season easily rests on quarterback Jake Locker. No longer a rookie or even a first-year starter, Locker goes into his third NFL season healthy with a new playbook, a rebuilt offensive line protecting him and some new teammates to catch his passes. So how the Titans bounce back from a 6-10 season and whether they reach the playoffs for the first time since 2008 will depend on how well Locker plays. Locker, 25, welcomes the pressure.

“I think that’s an awesome place to be …,” Locker said. “I feel very confident and very comfortable in what we’re doing right now. I’m excited about that opportunity.” The Titans certainly have done everything possible to put Locker in position to succeed. They bolstered the offensive line with two new guards in veteran Andy Levitre and rookie Chance Warmack. They also drafted another receiver in Justin Hunter to go with Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright and Nate Washington. Shonn Greene was signed to bring a power running back for a change of pace with Chris Johnson. Delanie Walker is a new receiving option at tight end too. Tennessee also cut veteran

Matt Hasselbeck in March and signed Ryan Fitzpatrick strictly as Locker’s backup, not competition for the starting job. “We’ve done what we think is necessary to do,” Titans coach

Mike Munchak said. “Now hopefully we’re right. We have to go prove that we’re right on what we did and all those things that we did are obviously going to benefit Jake.”

LATROBE — Casey Hampton’s deep belly laugh, the one that could cut the tension in a meeting room or light up the sideline in an instant, is gone. So is the massive backside that could send opposing centers back onto their heels and the wisdom that comes with being a five-time Pro Bowler. And for the man used to trotting onto the field for the Pittsburgh Steelers when Hampton’s familiar No. 98 came chugging off, it’s just weird. “Sometimes, I wish he was still here,” Steve McLendon said. “There’s not much you can say about it. I miss him. I think we all do.” While the decision to cut 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year James Harrison in the offseason created headlines, the 35-yearold Hampton was nudged quietly toward retirement when the longest-tenured member of one of football’s most stable franchises was not offered a new contract. He remains unsigned, even though McLendon insists Hampton can still play. McLendon may be right, but it most certainly won’t be with the Steelers, leaving defensive end Brett Keisel as the last man standing from a defensive front that led Pittsburgh to three Super Bowl appearances and two championships during a six-year stretch between the 2005 and 2010 seasons. Chris Hoke retired at the end of 2011. So did end Aaron Smith. Now Hampton is gone and Keisel doesn’t have a deal beyond 2013. “If it is the end, I want to go out on top,” Keisel said. “And I want to go out on top if it’s not the end.” As has become tradition, Keisel arrived for training camp at Saint Vincent College on Friday in a dump truck with a Steelers hard hat perched atop his head and the barely-in-control thatch of hair that serves as his beard in midseason form. The entrance was more than a little symbolic, with Keisel pointing out the team is “under construction.” If so, the strongest beam needs to be replaced. Even as Hampton’s play declined as he approached his mid-30s, he remained the unquestioned heart and soul in the middle of Pittsburgh’s 3-4 defense. He clogged up running lanes between the hash marks and served as a mentor on the sidelines and in the classroom, one who knew how to push buttons with his homespun charm. The job has now been passed down to Keisel, coming off a steady season in which he picked up 4.5 sacks and was credited with 40 quarterback pressures. Surrounded by a bunch of 20-somethings, Keisel understands he’s now the old guy, one who is ready to carry on the legacy left behind by the players who molded him from seventhround reach in 2002 to a veteran well into his second decade in the NFL. “If we need answers, we look to him,” defensive end Ziggy Hood said. “If he leads us through, I’m just going to follow.”

Snedeker wins Canadian Open
The Associated Press

OAKVILLE, Ontario — Brandt Snedeker won the Canadian Open on Sunday for his second PGA Tour title of the year, closing with 2-under 70 for a three-stroke victory. Snedeker took the lead Saturday after secondround leader Hunter Mahan withdrew when his wife went into labor, and held on in the breezy final round at Glen Abbey. Mahan’s wife, Kandi, gave birth to daughter Zoe Olivia Mahan early Sunday in Texas. Snedeker finished at 16-under 272. The six-time PGA Tour winner also won the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in February. Snedeker had two birdies and a bogey on the front nine. He birdied the par-4 10th to move to 16 under, but gave the shot back on the par-3 12th. He birdied the par-5 16th and parred the final two holes. Dustin Johnson, William McGirt, Matt Kuchar and Jason Bohn tied for second. David Hearn was the top Canadian, shooting a 73 to tie for 44th at 4 under. “It wasn’t the finish that I was really looking for. I had a nice chance today,” said Hearn, a playoff loser in the John Deere Classic. “I’ll take away some positives from the week. I appreciate the support from everyone here this week and it always feels good to play at home.” SOUTHPORT, England — Bernhard Langer and Mark Wiebe were tied after two playoff holes Sunday night in the storm-delayed Senior British Open when darkness suspended play at Royal Birkdale. They will finish the playoff this morning. Wiebe shot a 4-under 66 to match Langer at 9-under 271. Langer had a 70. They each parred the par-4 18th twice in the playoff. Langer, the 2010 winner at Carnoustie, blew a two-stroke lead with a double bogey on the final hole of regulation after hitting into a greenside bunker. Minutes earlier, Wiebe’s birdie putt at No. 18 came up short. DENHAM, England — Hall of Famer Karrie Webb rallied to win the Ladies European Masters on Sunday, making two eagles in a 7-under 65 for a one-stroke victory.

The 38-year-old Australian, preparing for the Women’s British Open at St. Andrews, hada16-under200 total at Buckinghamshire. She has three victories this season, also winning the Australian Ladies Masters in February and the LPGA Tour’s ShopRite LPGA Classic in June. Webb eagled the par-5 ninth and 14th holes. South Africa’s Ashleigh Simon was second. She closed with a 69.

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — The rain, the gloom, the small gathering of fans didn’t matter. For the families of baseball pioneers Jacob Ruppert Jr., Hank O’Day and James “Deacon” White this was what they had long been waiting for. All three have been dead for more than seven decades. Now their legacies were secure with their induction Sunday into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. “This is a day we will all remember for the rest of our lives,” said Jerry Watkins, great-grandson of White and one of nearly 50 family members in attendance. White, a barehanded catcher who grew up in Caton, N.Y., near Corning, was one of major league baseball’s earliest stars. In fact, he was the first batter in the first professional game on May 4, 1871, and laced a double. An outstanding hitter, White was regarded as the best catcher in baseball before switching to third base later in his nearly 20-year career. Ruppert was born in

Manhattan in 1867 and instead of college went to work for his father in the family brewing business. 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 purchased the Yankees before the 1915 season for $480,000, then proceeded to transform what had been a perennial also-ran in the American League into a powerhouse. He hired Miller Huggins as man-

ager, Ed Barrow as his general manager, snared Babe Ruth in a 1919 deal with the Boston Red Sox that changed the dynamics of the sport and built Yankee Stadium in 1923. O’Day was born on the rural west side of Chicago in 1859 and played ball as a kid with his older brothers. He 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.

Andie MacDowell likes small-town role
Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Watching mainstream TV makes Andie MacDowell anxious these days. The Golden Globewinning actress says that she can unwind only when watching reruns of “I Love Lucy” and “The Andy Griffith Show.” That’s why when the opportunity arose to star in the Hallmark Channel’s first original

prime-time series, “Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove,” MacDowell didn’t think twice. “We need diversity. We need to have options for everybody, and there aren’t many options for people who want to watch something wholesome,” says MacDowell over the phone from Vancouver, Canada, which stands in for the fictional town of Cedar Cove in Washington state. “A lot of people are

complaining about the very real violence in the world. And I’m not saying there’s not a place for it — but we’ve got gobs of it on TV now. When you look back at programming 30 years ago, as opposed to today, you think, ‘How far are we willing to go?’” The same could be said of sex. And even though MacDowell rose to fame in 1989 thanks to her role in the sexually charged — and at the time shock-

ing — Steven Soderbergh film “sex, lies and videotape,” she’s happy that “Cedar Cove” presents love in a romantic and idealized form. The initial response has been good. The premiere of “Cedar Cove” pulled in 3.8 million viewers last Saturday night and ranked No. 1 in social media as measured by Trendrr. “Cedar Cove,” based on a series of books by the

same name written by the bestselling romance novelist Debbie Macomber, stars MacDowell as Judge Olivia Lockhart, an attractive, single, middleaged woman whose position at the Cedar Cove Municipal Court makes her a local celebrity in the quaint, sun-dappled village. Her love interest, Jack Griffith, is played by Dylan Neal, a hunky actor best known for the role of Dylan Shaw on “The Bold and the Beautiful.” Griffith is new to town and edits the Cedar Cove Chronicle newspaper. In the show, small-town life is very Mayberry. Lockhart rides a bicycle to work, its front basket loaded with fresh flowers. She waves to families playing with their kids on green lawns. Her mother, played by Paula Shaw, is a sweet but chiding gossip; her daughter is artistic and free-spirited and knows how to shoot straight when it comes to her mother’s love life. “I think it’s important that men and women of a certain age are represented on television, because there aren’t many places that you’ll see that,” says MacDowell, who at 55 looks every inch the stunning L’Oreal model that she is. “It’s so much fun, particularly at my age, to represent characters that are vibrant and sexy and romantic.” And romance is what he Hallmark Channel is gunning for, says Michelle Vicary, Hallmark’s executive vice president of programming. “This kind of program-

ming is underrepresented, and we know there is a huge audience for it,” Vicary says. “Debbie Macomber has sold 170 million copies of her books. And there are 11 books in the Cedar Cove series — about this strong, unconventional leader of a town.” Stories by Macomber have a proven track record at Hallmark. TV movies based on her books, includ-

ing “Debbie Macomber’s Mrs. Miracle,” “Debbie Macomber’s Call Me Mrs. Miracle” and “Debbie Macomber’s Trading Christmas,” were Hallmark’s most watched movies for three years in a row, with each reeling in close to 5 million viewers during their respective premieres. They also ranked No. 1 among the coveted demographic of women ages 25 to 54.

Grandmother’s empty house needs the family’s undivided attention
Dear Abby: My grandmother made the decision to move to an assisted-living facility two years ago. She left most of her belongings in her farmhouse, which has sat empty since then. Her health is fine, so she should be around for many years. It has already been decided that my dad will inherit the house, but he doesn’t want to live there. I’m afraid the house is going to become unlivable if it sits for years without utilities or anyone taking care of it. Dad mows the grass, but that’s about it, and all of Grandma’s belongings are collecting dead flies. Nobody seems to care but me. How do I get my family to take care of

ADVICE Grandma’s house? — Conscientious in Kansas City, Kan.
Dear Conscientious: Your father may be inheriting the house, but is he also inheriting all of the contents? If the answer is no, there should be a family discussion about the disposition of the furniture, clothing, linens and any possible heirloom items. I agree with you that nothing good can happen to the house if no one is paying attention. It’s an invitation to theft or vandalism. Someone should check the place at least once a month. If no one else in the family is will-

ing to step up to the plate and help out, because you are conscientious, it looks like you’re elected. If it’s too much for you, perhaps a caretaker could be hired to watch over, or possibly live in, the house. Dear Abby: My son, “Joe,” is 19, a high school graduate living at home with his dad and me until he leaves for college next year. He will be paying his tuition, and we are charging him a token rent ($100/month) while he’s not in school. He eats dinner with us most nights, and I usually do his laundry. He has a part-time job. This has been working out fine except for one thing. Joe has a longtime girlfriend, and he has been spending some nights at her house. (She lives alone.) We haven’t forbidden this

because he’s an adult, and I worry that if we say no he will move in with her. However, we are not comfortable with his spending nights there. Part of our objection is we don’t like the example it sets for his 13-year-old sister, but aside from that we don’t think it’s a good idea, although we can’t say why. We know they’re sexually active regardless of who sleeps where. Are we old-fashioned, or is it reasonable to ask him not to spend the whole night with his girlfriend? — Old-School Parent Dear Old School: Because you have misgivings about your son spending the night at his girlfriend’s, you and your husband should talk to him about it together. Although he is an

adult, I agree that what’s going on sends a wrong message to his younger sister who, unless you talk to her about your family values, will think this is acceptable. Take time to think through why you are uneasy about what your son is doing. If it has anything to do with worry about an unplanned pregnancy, your husband might be able to get through to him better than you can. If he intends to complete his college education, becoming a father could slow him down, if not end it.
To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). For any given problem you put your mind to, you can think of multiple solutions that are worth a try. Avoid, however, trying to solve another person’s problem if they haven’t asked you to. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The sociologist Erving Goffman suggested, “The gestures which we sometimes call empty are perhaps in fact the fullest things of all.” You’ll give and receive such gestures today. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Sometimes people just need to vent. You’ll be there for them when they do. But when it’s time to concentrate on you, close up shop. Protect your time. CANCER (June 22-July 22). After a long day of sitting in a chair, it makes no sense to decompress by sitting in another chair. You are best when in movement. The hardest part is starting from an immobile state. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Living up to your own expectations seems like it would be easy. But actually, in the world of expectations, yours are the most demanding you could choose. Go easy on yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You know but one thing about another person. But all you have to do is begin an interaction, and before you know it, you will know two to five things. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll start a new project with good intentions and then proceed to fumble and falter a bit, which is completely normal and to be expected. Don’t give up too soon! SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Better is better. If it’s only a little bit better, feel good and take the win. A little bit better plus the magic ingredient of every day equals something you can be proud of in the end. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If illness can be psychosomatic, wellness can be, too. That is precisely why the entertainment you call a “guilty pleasure” is actually a necessity for your health and happiness. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Minimizing and oversimplifying a challenge won’t help you succeed. If you’re struggling, assume there’s a good reason. Avoid being needlessly frustrated. Take a break. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Excitement doesn’t always lead to closeness between people. Some relationships are like the birth of the universe. They start with a Big Bang and then spread apart and drift in different directions toward outer space. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You think you’re merely recounting recent happenings, but you also may be inspiring spontaneous wonder and enthralling someone who is intrigued by your lifestyle. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 29). Feed your plans to the paper shredder — a whimsical, unforeseen opportunity brings August adventure. Follow your winning instincts to a new job in September. A wish for your family is granted in October. November brings a fast-paced learning environment. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 1, 22, 7 and 18.
