State cites scarce funds in decision to impose restrictions on county spans

Already listed as structurally decient by the state, 16 bridges in Luzerne County will see new weight restrictions due to scarce funding for improvements.

on the Pennsylvania Department of Transportations list are open. Five of them are posted with weight restrictions: A bridge on state Route 118 over Fades Creek in Lake Township; A bridge on state Route 415 over the Harveys Lake inlet at Harveys Lake; A bridge on state Route 437 Pete g.

CityVest still owner of Sterling site, mayor warns

Nothing is going to be happening until city ownership is established

A heart that longs for home

Wilkes-Barre ofcials wont have legal standing to negotiate and nalize new development at the Hotel Sterling site until the city owns the property, and the process to secure ownership will take months, Leighton city Mayor Tom Leighton cautioned Wednesday. Its not going to happen overnight, Leighton said. He said he has had no communication with the property owner, the nonprot CityVest, throughout the citys demolition of the condemned former hotel at the corner of River and Market streets. The city has the legal

right to seek possession of the real estate because it paid for trafc barriers and demolition. The city staked its claim by ling a municipal lien against CityVest in January seeking $76,148 for its expenses over two years, and Leighton said the $419,000 demolition and other city costs will be added. A legal action similar to a foreclosure on defaulted mortgages will probably be the chosen path to city ownership, Leighton said. Local attorney David Schwager, who has no involvement in the matter, agreed to explain how the legal process works because he regularly handles real estate executions. The lien holder the city must le a writ with the county and provide the sheriffs ofce with $2,500 and various documents required to See STERLING | 12A

George Gera, a lifelong resident of Eckley Miners Village, was displaced by a June 4 fire and is eager to return to his family home. For now, hes staying at a senior living community in Butler Township.


Fire displaced Eckley man from lifelong residence

JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES George Gera misses his gun cabinet, record player and trusty encyclopedias he consulted when questions popped into his mind. He looks smart in his crisp new shirts and pants but wishes he still had the familiar worn clothes he donned to putter in his garden or relax on his front porch. Most of all, he aches for his lifelong family homestead at Eckley Miners Village in Foster

Township. All Ive got left is this, the 86-year-old said, waving his walking cane. Im in a state of limbo. A June 4 fire cast Gera out of the home where he was born and raised with 10 siblings, but the retired Wilkes University professor holds out hope he will return to that spot to live out the rest of his days. The home is among several rented to private individuals at the historic state-owned coal

patch town, and Gera is or was the last Eckley native living in the village. Gera stayed with loved ones after the blaze and two weeks ago moved very temporarily, he emphasizes to the Providence Place retirement community in Butler Township.

They particularly worried about the impact of post-re stress on his high blood pressure. Eckley ofcials offered Gera another rental unit at the historic mining village because they are still assessing options for the re-damaged structure, said Bode J.

WILKES-BARRE A Nanticoke man charged with having heroin, cocaine and marijuana inside his home in October 2011 was sentenced Wednesday to four to eight years in state prison. Karl T. Traynham, 29, of East Main Street, was sentenced on two counts each of possession with intent to deliver and criminal conspiracy. Traynham pleaded guilty to the charges in March. County Judge Fred Pierantoni ordered Traynham to have no contact with victims, codefendants or witnesses and gave Traynham six days credit for time already served in prison. According to court papers, on Oct. 26, 2011, police searched Traynhams home, where they found 34 grams of suspected crack cocaine, 842 packets of suspected heroin and a small amount of marijuana. Police said they also found a digital scale commonly used to measure narcotics for sale. Police said three men were in the home and that they learned Traynham lived there and paid the rent. Traynham was not at the residence during the search. Assistant District Attorney Jill Matthews Lada prosecuted the case. Traynham was represented by attorney Basil Russin.

The suit says a total of $39,042 is owed, which includes interest and late fees, and that Cefalo has not offered or asserted any objections to the amounts billed. Cefalos attorneys, who include his father, said in court papers Marc Cefalo has not had contact with Lipperini regarding any payment since April 2009.

Charter school directors hire 2

YATESVILLE After nearly a year of inghting and a raucous meeting Thursday night, the Pittston Area School Board returned Janet Donovan to oversee the districts curriculum. Last August, the board reassigned Donovan from director of curriculum to building principal at the Intermediate Center and did away with her former position. Superintendent Michael Garzella has been pushing to have her reinstated, but the boards majority resisted, citing the districts budget crunch. Last night, the board hired 19 people. After it re-hired Donovan as the Intermediate Center principal, the board meeting turned into a shouting match. Board members Bob Linskey, Joe Kelly and Richard Gorzkowski said they were not informed of all the internal candidates that applied for the administration positions. We dont even know who the hell applied, Linskey said. Im done playing this game. Board member Anthony Guariglia said he called the district and found out who applied. He suggested Linskey should have done the same. I shouldnt have to call to nd out

who applied for a principal position, Linskey said. Linskey and Kelly walked out of the meeting, and Board President Charles Sciandra ordered a private, executive session in a back classroom off the library to sort out the hires. Linskey and Kelly returned, but Kelly and Gorzkowski stayed out of the private meeting. When all returned, the board tabled the curriculum position. But after that, Gorzkowski made a motion to return Donovan as director of curriculum. The standing-roomonly crowd erupted in applause. The superintendent made a plea for Donovan as principal of curriculum. I support putting Dr. Janet Donovan as director of curriculum, Garzella said. I was here a month and realized we need that position. The board then voted to return Donovan to director of curriculum and to make Coreen Milazzo principal of the Intermediate Center. Linskey took issue with the way the hires were made. The district has a clear hiring policy for professional employees and it was not followed, he said. Sciandra said he spent the past three days helping interview dozens of candidates and the policy was followed. The board also hired former school board member James Red OBrien as a warehouse supervisor. OBrien previously served as mayor of Avoca for three years, was elected to three terms on the Pittston Area School Board, where he served as

president in 2007, and was elected to a four-year term as Luzerne Countys recorder of deeds. He recently ran for district judge seat formerly held by Fred Pierantoni, who was elected to the county Court of Common Pleas. He lost the Democratic nomination by a handful of votes to Alexandra Kokura of Dupont. She is running against Jerry Mecadon, who won the Republican nomination. OBrien will earn $50,000 a year plus benets. OBrien will be in charge of the districts warehouse, supplies and purchasing, Sciandra said. We need someone who can track all the districts assets, he said. In other business, the board: Hired Arthur Savokinas as principal at the primary center. He replaces Theresa McAndrew, who retired. * Hired Kevin Booth as principal in charge of human resources, security and federal programs. This is a new position. Hired Chris Lezvenick as vice principal at the high school and Joseph Giambra as vice principal at the middle school. Hired the following as special education teachers: Maria Piazza, Michael Strukus, Amy Olivieri, Heather McAndrew, Krista McGlynn, Jarryd Lokuta, Gabrielle LaScala and Andrea Wharton. Hired Kaitlyn Hopkins as a speech therapist, William Mills as a psychologist and Jennifer Stone as a social worker.

Tunkhannock Area must also pay 27 furloughed teachers back pay, which could top $2 million

United Way names new official

TUNKHANNOCK A Wyoming County judge handed down a ruling Thursday upholding an arbitrators order that Tunkhannock Area School District reinstate 27 furloughed teachers with back pay. The teachers were furloughed in July 2012 in a costcutting effort, and the nancial impact of reinstating them could exceed $2 million. The Pennsylvania State Education Association

Northeast Region ofce issued a press release praising the ruling by Senior Judge Brendon Vanston, handed down three days after both sides had made their case during a Monday hearing prompted when the district appealed the order from an arbitrator. The saga began when the district furloughed 32 teachers July 3 of last year. The union led a labor grievance, and a hearing was held in November. The union argued for full reinstatement on the basis of two points: Both sides had signed a mem-

orandum of understanding, or MOU, barring such furloughs, and the layoffs were so extensive they violated a state law barring districts from furloughing teachers solely for nancial purposes. Arbitrator Thomas G. McConnell Jr. found the rst argument so convincing he ruled in favor of the union without giving consideration to the second argument. The MOU was drawn up after the last contract expired Aug. 31, 2011. Negotiations for a new contract were still unsettled, and the two sides

signed an agreement freezing wages for one year, implementing other items both sides had agreed to at that point and barring any furloughs for the duration of the agreement, running through Aug. 31, 2012. The district argued that, while the furloughs were announced nearly two months before that date, they didnt take effect until after it, thus complying with the MOU. The union argued the date of implementation was irrelevant because a clause in the agreement says this MOU shall expire upon the ratication of a successor agreement. McConnell ruled the wage freeze was for one year but the furlough ban was not. By the time the ruling was handed down, ve of the fur-

loughed teachers had found other jobs, leaving 27 still seeking reinstatement. The district led an appeal, and Thursdays ruling was the outcome. The district could appeal to a higher court. Phone calls Thursday afternoon to attorney Frank Tunis, who handled the case for the district, and Superintendent Michael Healey were not returned. Once again we are very pleased by the outcome of the decision, union representative Sheila Saidman said in the press release. We hope this decision will end the appeals by the school district and we can get these teachers back to where they belong in front of their classrooms by the end of the month.

In cooperation with the Greater Wilkes-Barre Labor Council, the United Way of Wyoming Valley announced the selection of Sandra Major Moosic as the United Ways AFL-CIO community services liaison and director of labor participation. She will start Aug. 13, lling the position of Walter Klepaski Jr., who retired after 33 years of employment. The labor staff position and Labor Participation Department for United Way of Wyoming Valley was originally created in 1948 and Moosic will become only the third person to hold that position. She is a graduate of Lake-Lehman High School and Bloomsburg University with a bachelors in sociology and social welfare. For the past 22 years, she has been employed as a caseworker for Luzerne County Children & Youth. She is a member of Teamsters Local 401 and has also served as a union steward and trustee.

WILKES-BARRE By a contentious 5-4 vote, the Wilkes-Barre Area School Board on Thursday voted to hire Brian Leighton, the brother of city Mayor Tom Leighton, as a home and school visitor. Board President John Quinn and board members Louis Elmy, Dino Galella, Phillip Latinski and Maryanne Toole voted for the appointment while Lynn Evans, Christine Katsock, James Susek and the Rev. Shawn Walker voted against it. After the meeting, Walker and Katsock said they voted against the hire because it was not the recommendation of the committee that interviewed applicants for the position. Katsock identified Brian Leighton as the mayors brother. Katsock also said she believes that because Leightons hire went against the recommendation of the interview committee, it was made in violation of the hiring policy. Superintendent Bernard Prevuznak said he didnt want to name the members of the committee that interviewed Leighton without consulting with the solicitor, who had left the meeting early. According to the district hiring policy, which was adopted by the

Hazleton Area School Board member Robert Mehalick as director of special education. Mehalick was director of Special Education at Pennsbury School District in Bucks County and, prior to that, spent six years as director of special education at Southern Columbia Area School District in Catawissa, during which time the Pennsylvania Department of Education commended the special education department for efforts to educate all students in their home school district. Among 10 coaching appointments was Gina Elmy, appointed varsity field hockey assistant coach at Meyers High School. The vote was 8-0; Louis Elmy abstained. Galella noted the appointment was at the request and recommendation of the head coach.

WILKES-BARRE Teaming up once again, city police and state police vice and narcotic troopers from Wyoming on Thursday arrested two alleged heroin dealers from North Franklin Street. Authorities allege Rasham Robinson, 28, known on the street as Rah Rah, and Elajuwon Prioleau, 29, known as Oak, were selling heroin near their apartments during July. They dealt heroin on the street, in their apartments and from a Lincoln MKZ, according to charges led. A gun was found wrapped in shopping bags and in a box behind a tree in the backyard of Robinsons apartment at 701 N. Robinson Franklin St., authorities said. Prioleau lived nearby at 695 N. Franklin St. Authorities allege the duo were selling heroin stamped (racial slur) Please, and Prioleau Mula. Robinson was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $80,000 bail, and Prioleau was jailed for lack of $60,000 bail. The enforcement blitz by city police and state police targeting certain areas in Wilkes-Barre began in mid-July and so far has resulted in 29 arrests on drug trafcking, weapons and prostitution offenses. Police Chief Gerard Dessoye hinted at the enforcement blitz when speaking to the news media on July 19 after a deadly shooting on South Welles Street hours earlier. We actually redeployed some of our ofcers and we increased our anticrime unit signicantly, Dessoye said two weeks ago. We started an initiative for some of the lesser, quality-oflife crimes. Ive taken that focus and redirected that into violent crime. Robinson and Prioleau were arrested a day after authorities arrested six people on drug trafcking charges in the city. Eric Conahan, 22, and John Longfoot, 19, were arrested after an alleged heroin sale at Coal Street Park; Khalil Owens, 20, was arrested after allegedly selling heroin in the Mineral Springs apartment complex; Dumont Anderson, 26, was arrested after he allegedly sold crack cocaine in the area of North Pennsylvania Avenue and Harry Street, within hours Tuesday night.

MOSCOW National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden left the transit zone of a Moscow airport and ofcially entered Russia after authorities granted him asylum for a year, his lawyer said Thursday, a move that suggests the Kremlin isnt shying away from further conict with the United States. Snowdens whereabouts will be kept a secret for security reasons, lawyer Anatoly Kucherena said, making it even harder to keep track of the former NSA systems analyst, who has been largely hiding out at Moscows Sheremetyevo airport since his arrival from Hong Kong on June 23. The U.S. has demanded that Russia send Snowden home to face prosecution for espionage over his leaks that revealed wide U.S. Internet surveillance practices, but Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed the request. In a statement released by WikiLeaks, Snowden thanked Russia and lashed out at the Obama administration. Over the past eight weeks we have seen the Obama administration show no respect for international or domestic law, but in the end the law is winning, he said. I thank the Russian Federation for granting me asylum in accordance with its laws and international obligations. The move already appears to have further strained tense U.S.-Russian relations amid differences over Syria, U.S. criticism of Russias human rights record and other disputes. Putin has said his asylum was contingent on him not hurting U.S. interests, but the Kremlin could have interpreted that to exclude documents he had already leaked to newspapers that continue to trickle out. The White House insisted Snowden isnt a whistleblower or dissident, saying the move to grant him asylum undermines Russias record of cooperation with the U.S. Spokesman Jay Carney said that the White House is reevaluating whether a planned fall summit with President Barack Obama and Putin should still go ahead. In his application for asylum, Snowden said he feared he could face torture or capital punishment if he is returned to the U.S., though the U.S. has promised Russia that is not the case. The U.S. has revoked his passport, and the logistics of him reaching other countries that have offered him asylum, including Venezuela, Nicaragua and Bolivia, are complicated. He now is one of the most sought-after men in the world, Kucherena told reporters at the airport. The issue of security is very

Obama orders review after plant blast

President Barack Obama on Thursday ordered federal agencies to review safety rules at chemical facilities in response to the deadly April explosion at a Texas fertilizer plant. In an executive order, Obama tasked agencies with identifying new ways to safely store and secure ammonium nitrate, the explosive chemical investigators say caused the blast. Agencies are also being told to determine whether additional chemicals should be covered by federal regulatory programs. The massive explosion at the plant in the community of West, Texas, killed 15 people, leveled hundreds of structures and damaged three of the towns four schools. A report sent to the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee in June showed the decades-old standards used to regulate fertilizer chemicals are far weaker than those used in other countries.


important for him. The Guardian newspaper on Wednesday published a new report on U.S. intelligence-gathering based on information from Snowden, but Kucherena said the material was provided before Snowden promised to stop leaking as a requirement of getting asylum. The one-year asylum can be extended indenitely, and Snowden also has the right to seek Russian citizenship. According to the rules set

by the Russian government, a person who has temporary asylum would lose it if he travels abroad. Kucherena said it would be up to Snowden to decide whether to travel to any foreign destination, but added that he now has no such plans. Snowdens father said in remarks broadcast Wednesday on Russian television that he would like to visit his son. Kucherena said he is arranging the trip.

Its been so hot in China that people are grilling shrimp on manhole covers, eggs are hatching without incubators and a highway billboard has mysteriously caught re by itself. The heat wave the worst in at least 140 years in some parts has left dozens of people dead and pushed thermometers above 40 degrees C (104 F) in at least 40 cities and counties, mostly in the south and east. Authorities for the rst time have declared the heat a level 2 weather emergency a label normally invoked for typhoons and ooding. Extreme heat began hitting Shanghai and several eastern and southern provinces in early July and is expected to grip much of China through mid-August.

Kidnapping victim Michelle Knight speaks Thursday during the sentencing of Ariel Castro in a Cleveland courtroom. Castro, convicted of imprisoning Knight and two other women in his house and raping them repeatedly for a decade, was sentenced Thursday to life without parole plus 1,000 years. Castro, 53, apologized before he was sentenced, blaming a sex addiction, his former wife and even the FBI for not thoroughly investigating the abductions. Knight, who was the first woman Castro abducted in 2002, stood within feet of Castro and told him his life was over. You took 11 years of my life away and I have got it back, she said. I spent 11 years in hell. Now your hell is just beginning.

Cruise lines post crime data online

For the rst time, the three largest U.S.-based cruise lines on Thursday began posting on their websites more comprehensive data about allegations of serious crimes committed aboard ships. The disclosures were made voluntarily but come amid growing pressure from Congress and crime victims for greater accuracy about crime at sea. The postings by Carnival Corp., Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Line show many more crimes were reported to security personnel than had previously been made public, but still a minuscule number compared with the nearly 17 million people who embark on cruises in North America every year. Before Thursday, people only had access to U.S. Coast Guard crime gures that were based solely on cases in which the FBI had concluded an investigation.

Feeling hot under the collar?

Study finds that as temperatures rise, tempers often flare
AP Science Writer

WASHINGTON As the world gets warmer, people are more likely to get hot under the collar, scientists say. A massive new study nds that aggressive acts like committing violent crimes and waging war become more likely with each added degree. Researchers analyzed 60 studies on historic empire collapses, recent wars, violent crime rates in the United States, lab simulations that tested police decisions on when to shoot and even cases where pitchers threw deliberately at bat-

ters in baseball. They found a common thread over centuries: Extreme weather very hot or dry means more violence. The authors say the results show strong evidence that climate can promote conict. When the weather gets bad we tend to be more willing to hurt other people, said economist Solomon Hsiang of the University of California, Berkeley. He is the lead author of the study, published online Thursday by the journal Science. Experts in the causes of war gave it a mixed reception. The team of economists even came up

with a formula that predicts how much the risk of different types of violence should increase with extreme weather. In war-torn parts of equatorial Africa, it says, every added degree Fahrenheit or so increases the chance of conict between groups rebellion, war, civil unrest by 11 percent to 14 percent. For the United States, the formula says that for every increase of 5.4 degrees Fahrenheit, the likelihood of violent crime goes up 2 percent to 4 percent. Temperatures in much of North America and Eurasia are likely to go up by that 5.4 degrees by about 2065 because of increases in carbon dioxide pollution, according to a separate paper published in Science on Thursday.

Silvio Berlusconi, 76, unlikely to go to prison

Italys ex-premier convicted of tax fraud

Berlusconi supporters and his own center-left Democratic Party to push through reforms to get Italy out of recession, and the ruling is likely to have a destabilizing impact. Judge Antonio Esposito, in reading the courts decision, declared Berlusconis conviction and prison term were irrevocable, though he ordered another court to review the length of a ban on public ofce. Lower courts had put it at ve years, but a state prosecutor recommended in its arguments this week that it be lowed to three, citing conicts in the relevant sentencing laws. How the government is affected by the ruling is likely to emerge in comings days. On the one side, Berlusconi supporters might withdraw support in protest, while center-left lawmakers might nd it unpalatable to continue in a coalition with a party whose leader has been convicted of defrauding the state of tax income. Beppe Grillo, the leader of the anti-establishment 5 Star Movement, declared on his blog: Berlusconi is dead. He compared the conviction to the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 that helped bring down Soviet communism. Berlusconi is highly unlikely

WASHINGTON Leaving piles of unnished business for the fall, Congress began exiting Washington on Thursday for a veweek vacation with its accomplishments few, its efforts at budgeting in tatters and its collective nerves frayed by months of feuding. The Houses chief accomplishment for the week was a bipartisan Wednesday vote to deal with spiking student loan interest rates, readying that legislation for President Barack Obamas signature. But that bit of progress came the very day that a Republican strategy of embracing painful automatic budget cuts imploded with the collapse of a major transportation and housing bill. That measure fell victim, top lawmakers said, to opposition from both conservative and more moderate Republicans and laid bare the aws in the partys budget strategy, which promised deeper cuts to domestic programs than the rank and le were willing to deliver in votes on funding bills implementing the pledge. Before leaving town, the GOP House prepared its 40th attack on Obamas signature health care law today and slated votes on other legislation aimed at embarrassing the administration and sharpening the partys political message for encounters back home with constituents. As the Senate raced out its own doors on Thursday, it conrmed Obamas nomination of Samantha Power as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. That capped an unusually productive run of advancing administration nominations but one that came only after majority Democrats threatened to rewrite the rules to take away the GOPs right to libuster such nominees. Senators also held a bipartisan closed-door luncheon in hopes of continuing the fragile sense of harmony that has enveloped the chamber since it defused the libuster battle. But that session came just minutes after Republican Senators banded together to shut down the Democrats attempt to advance their own, far more generous version of the transportation and housing bill, which was lled with funding for popular items such as road and bridge repairs and community development grants for local projects.

Man facing sex-assault charges released on bail,again


WILKES-BARRE For the second time in the past week, a man facing sexual assault charges in Michigan and Luzerne County has posted his bail and was released from the county prison.

David Zarn, 46, appeared before County Judge Lesa Gelb at a bail posting hearing Thursday morning at which 10 percent of his $100,000 bail was posted by Michael Smith Bail Bonds. Zarn faces charges on allegations he sexually assaulted the same two girls for period of

time in Michigan and then in Mountain Top. He is currently scheduled to stand trial on related charges in Luzerne County in November. Gelb said the terms of Zarns bail include that he must wear an electronic monitor and is to remain on house arrest at

his Yorktown Road, Mountain Top, home until authorities from Michigan take him to face charges there. It is unknown when that will happen. Gelb said Zarn must Zarn not have any contact with the victims in the case or

with any minors. Zarn may only leave his home for doctors appointments or to meet with his attorney since he does not have employment, Assistant District Attorney Jenny Roberts said. Zarn had previously waived

his extradition to Michigan, but last week his attorney, Joseph Sklarosky Sr., asked to withdraw that waiver and to have an extradition hearing. Gelb has not made a ruling on that request, but previously said she would accept court papers by Aug. 5.

Bodies in motion: Its all physics,you know


WILKES-BARRE By Thursday, McKenna Dolan had earned a reputation as being hyperactive. Not me! the Wyoming Valley West Middle School student insisted shortly before hopping around shouting things like Two grand jetes! while most of her dance mates awaited instructions. Elsewhere, a group of students sat in a circle on the oor trying to master clapping and slapping to the cup song from the movie Pitch Perfect, while a third group practiced lying prone, jumping up, curling and uncurling to Keshas Tik Tok lyrics: Dont stop make it pop! And, um, what has all this got to do with science? We teach them the physics of dance, Wilkes University junior Dan Lykens said as the girls from regional middle schools either practiced or discussed choreogra-

phy Thursday. Physics of Dance was just one of many science lessons about 80 girls from 20 regional schools received during the universitys annual Women Empowered by Science Camp. The students also did a bit of T-shirt tiedying, Lego robot programming, medical diagnostics and pharmaceutical compounding (without real drugs, of course). The dance lessons began at desks as Lykens led a lecture on things such as angular momentum (think a gure skater spinning with arms out and speeding up by pulling them in), projectile motion (leaping, demonstrated in the classroom with a small cannon) and center of balance (countering the extension of leg in one direction with an arm stretched out in the opposite direction, say). After the lecture, the girls headed to the aptly named ballroom of the Henry Student Center, warmed up to CottonEye Joe and Shakiras Waka waka, then broke

into groups. Did all that classroom theory help make them better dancers? It could, Elizabeth Harding said pensively. Was it the best part of the camp? Denitely, she offered with considerably more alacrity. The camp is funded through grants and attendance fess that are often covered by schools or groups sponsoring individual students, Wilkes graduate Alyssa Klinitski said. The group that had begun with clapping exercises was now on the oor spinning and leaping as Lykens and Klinitski shouted the lessons each move demonstrated Center of balance! Projectile motion! Angular momentum. Dont hit the window!

Suspended gun rights police chief weighing options

Associated Press




Janney Montgomery Scott LLC Member NYSE FINRA SIPC






HARRISBURG A Pennsylvania police chief who posted a profanity-laden video online is reviewing the legality of his 30-day unpaid suspension for using borough weapons and ammunition without prior approval, his lawyer said Thursday. Attorney Joseph P. Nahas said Gilberton Police Chief Mark

Kessler believes he did have permission to use the equipment he was shown firing. He has not discussed potential litigation with Kessler, Kessler Nahas said, adding that Kessler has an employment contract and state law gives him certain protections as a chief of police. Nahas said Kessler maintains he did not do anything wrong but he understands the punishment. He certainly cannot change their mind. He said Kessler is worried the borough council that voted 5-1 late Wednesday to suspend him may move to fire him before he is scheduled to return to the job. Kessler is a 14-year veteran of the force in the 800-population town in the heart of central Pennsylvania

coal country. The lawyer said Kessler purchased the ammunition and parts of a gun with his own money. Calls seeking comment from the boroughs elected officials and the borough solicitor were not immediately returned Thursday. Kesslers websites and videos display strong feelings about gun rights. Nahas said he has received death threats. A link on his home page solicits donations for his Constitutional Security Force to push back tyrants (and) restore what our founding fathers started. Men wearing clothing that identified them as members of that force attended the borough council meeting Thursday night.

Frank Pasquini, membership chairman for the Downtown Wilkes-Barre Business Association, provided an update on the membership drive Thursday at the groups monthly meeting at the Barnes & Noble college bookstore on South Main Street. The group has approximately 60 members and set a goal of 70 for the 2013-2014 fiscal year. Among the initiatives in the works are a restaurant week from Sept. 20 to 27, events for the universities and colleges in October and the window painting for the holiday season.

HARRSIBURG Subsidiaries of eight companies are signaling interest in selling health insurance policies through the marketplace that is being set up in Pennsylvania next year under 2010s sweeping federal law, state insurance regulators said Thursday. The interested companies include all four of Pennsylvanias Blue Cross/ Blue Shield insurers, as well as Aetna, UPMC, Geisinger and Coventry Health Care. Their proposed policies include individual and small group plans, the state Insurance Department said. The proposed plans are spread across the levels of coverage, referred to as bronze, silver, gold, platinum and catastrophic plans. They offer a range of premiums, deductibles and co-pays that depend

on variables, such as how many doctors are included in the network. However, some of the proposed plans will only be available for purchase in certain counties, the Insurance Department said. Two major commercial insurers with a presence in the state, United Healthcare and Cigna, were not on the list. The Insurance Department refused to reveal how many policies the companies are proposing and said it would not share details of the policies being proposed. None of the plans have been certied by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, a necessary step before one can be sold in the marketplace, said department spokeswoman Melissa Fox. The federal government will run Pennsylvanias marketplace after Gov. Tom Corbett declined to do so.

Lawyers sum up cases in voter ID trial

Courtroom clash ends after 12 days
Associated Press

HARRISBURG The 12-day trial over Pennsylvanias tough voter-identication law ended Thursday in a courtroom clash, with the state contending that ofcials have provided safeguards to ensure any registered voter can easily get the mandatory photo ID and plaintiffs urging the judge to overturn the law because it violates voters constitutional rights. It is time to put an end to this and enjoin the law, Jennifer Clarke, director of Philadelphias Public Interest Law Center and a member of the plaintiffs legal team, told Commonwealth Court Judge Bernard McGinley. Philadelphia lawyer Alicia Hickok, arguing for the state, said the plain-

tiffs failed to show that the law is unconstitutional. State ofcials have done whatever is possible, whatever is necessary and whatever is legal to ensure that voters know about the new law and how to apply for a free, voting-only card if they lack any other acceptable forms of ID, Hickok said. The plaintiffs are the NAACP, the Pennsylvania League of Women Voters, the Philadelphias Homeless Advocacy Project and two individual voters. It was unclear how soon McGinley would rule on the case and how his decision would dovetail with an expected review by the full Commonwealth Court before it reaches the state Supreme Court. Both sides have vowed to appeal a negative deci-

sion. Hickok told McGinley the state would agree to postpone enforcement of the March 2012 law for a third time in the Nov. 5 municipal and judicial election, but the plaintiffs lawyers demanded concessions. Washington lawyer Michael Rubin said any such stipulation should remain in force until all appeals have been exhausted. McGinley said he would rule on a requested preliminary injunction by Aug. 19. Court orders have blocked enforcement of the law since Republican Gov. Tom Corbett signed it in March 2012. Critics say the law, approved by the GOP majority in the Legislature without any Democratic support, was aimed at discouraging

seniors, minorities and other Democratic-leaning groups from voting. In the trial, plaintiffs emphasized apparent problems in processing and distributing the free, voting-only ID card that the Pennsylvania Department of State created in August as a safety net for voters unable to get other acceptable IDs. The state relaxed requirements for the special card in September and has issued more than 3,800 of them so far. The plaintiffs say at least dozens of registered voters who applied for the cards before last years election did not receive them before the election, meaning they could cast only provisional ballots if the law were being enforced. The plaintiffs also point to research by their hired statistical expert, who testied that hundreds of thousands

of Pennsylvania voters lack the photo IDs they need to cast regular ballots in the Nov. 5 general election if the law is in effect. State ofcials testied they have taken decisive action to x aws in implementing the law and contend the present system ensures any registered voter who lacks an acceptable ID can obtain one. They emphasized ofcials efforts to educate voters about the new law, including last years $5 million multimedia campaign that urged voters with drivers licenses or other acceptable ID to show it.

Official blasts city at hearing

Associated Press


PHILADELPHIA A former licenses and inspections commissioner blasted the city during a public hearing Thursday for what he called a decades-long failure to protect the public that has

resulted in a string of tragedies including a fatal building collapse earlier this summer. Bennett Levin, commissioner from 1992 through 1995, alleged the department has become focused on economic development and collecting licensing fees to generate revenue.

Neil Schaefer, 85, died Monday, July 29, 2013, at the Commonwealth Hospice Unit, Wilkes-Barre, after an unexpected illness. Neil, a resident of Ormond Beach, Fla., loved the summers he spent in Exeter near his niece and her family. Neil was born Nov. 6, 1927, in New York City, a son of the late Harry and Mary Gresus Schaefer. Neil grew up in Brooklyn, where he attended St. Cecelias Roman Catholic School until he was drafted on his 18th birthday in the waning months of World War II.

WASHINGTON President Barack Obama has chosen a retired corporate and government ofcial with experience managing numerous organizations in crisis to take over an Internal Revenue Service under re for targeting political groups. Obama said his nominee for commissioner of the tax agency, John Koskinen, is an expert at turning around institutions in need of reform. With decades of experience, in both the private and public sectors, John knows how to lead in difcult times, whether that means ensuring new management or implementing new checks and balances, Obama said in a statement. Every part of our government must operate with absolute integrity, and that is especially true for the IRS. I am condent that John will do whatever it takes to restore the publics trust in the agency. Koskinen came in to overhaul mortgage buyer Freddie Mac after its near collapse in the nancial cri-

sis at the end of the George W. Bush administration. The 74-year-old also helped restructure the assets of the largest failed life insurance company in U.S. history, Mutual Benet Life, and reorganize the Penn Central Transportation Co. after it became the largest bankruptcy in U.S. history. His government experience includes handling preparation for the Year 2000 challenge for President Bill Clinton and helping restore the District of Columbia to nancial stability after years of mismanagement as city administrator from 20002003. Koskinens nomination to a ve-year term must be conrmed by the Senate. If conrmed, Koskinen would take over an agency in crisis, just as it is gearing up to administer large parts of the presidents health care law. The IRS has been under siege since May when agency ofcials acknowledged that agents working in a Cincinnati ofce had improperly targeted tea party groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status. The IRS has since released documents suggesting that progressive groups may have been targeted, too. Congressional investigations have so far shown that IRS supervisors in Washington including lawyers in the chief counsels ofce oversaw the processing of tea party applications. But there has been no evidence that anyone outside the IRS directed the targeting or that agents were politically motivated. Obama ousted acting

IRS Commissioner Steven Miller in May when the revelations came to light. The president appointed former White House budget ofcial Danny Werfel as acting commissioner while he searched for a nominee. Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., said Koskinen has the right background and experience in helping turnaround organizations facing tough challenges. Baucus chairs the Senate Finance Committee, which will hold hearings on Koskinens nomination. I look forward to working with Mr. Koskinen and hope, after a thorough review, the Finance Committee can quickly move his nomination to the full Senate, Baucus said. Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the top Republican on the Finance Committee, promised a thorough vetting of Koskinen. Hatch, who complained Obama did not consult him in making the nomination, said Koskinen must promise to cooperate with congressional investigators. I will demand signicant answers from this nominee to ensure that we not only get to the truth, but that the administration is fully cooperating with our efforts, Hatch said. With about 90,000 employees, the IRS processes more than 140 million individual income tax returns each year. Starting next year, the IRS will administer much of Obamas new health care law. The IRS, which is part of the Treasury Department, will be in charge of enforcing the mandate that most individuals have health insurance, collecting nes from people who dont. The IRS will also distribute subsidies to help people buy insurance in new state-based marketplaces known as exchanges.

Obama has asked for a 14 percent increase in the IRSs budget for next year in part to help the agency administer the health care law. House Republicans have responded by proposing to cut the agencys budget by about a fourth. On Friday, the House is scheduled to vote on a bill that would prohibit the IRS from enforcing any aspect of the health law. It would mark the 40th House vote to repeal some or all of the law. So far, all the bills have died in the Democratic-controlled Senate. Because John has a clear understanding of how to make organizations more effective and an unshakeable commitment to public service, he will be an exceptional leader who will strengthen the institution and restore condence in the IRS, said Treasury Secretary Jack Lew. An administration ofcial, speaking on condition of anonymity since the search was private, said the president directed his team to above all nd someone with extensive experience taking on organizations in crisis and knowledge of best practices to turn them around. Koskinens corporate restructuring experience includes 21 years at the Palmieri Company consulting rm, where his positions included CEO and chairman, president, and vice president. Larry Hirsch, who served on the Freddie Mac board while Koskinen was chair, credited him with turning around rock-bottom morale at the company as it relied on a government bailout to survive. Koskinen took over as interim chief after its top executive resigned and a month later the chief nancial ofcer committed suicide. THE TIMES LEADER

Gay couples get hitched in Minnesota,Rhode Island

Inclusion of the two states means more than quarter of the U.S. now allows same-sex marriage
Associated Press

PROVIDENCE, R.I. In public celebrations and intimate ceremonies, gay couples exchanged vows Thursday in Minnesota and Rhode Island as the number of places where same-sex couples can wed grew to more than a quarter of U.S. states. Dozens of gay couples began getting hitched at the stroke of midnight in Minnesota, the largest Midwestern state where it is now legal to do so. In Rhode Island, the last New England state to allow same-sex marriage, weddings began at 8:30 a.m., when municipal ofces

opened. Zachary Marcus and Gary McDowell were married Thursday afternoon at Providence City Hall by Mayor Angel Taveras. McDowell, 28, a Harvard Medical School researcher, was born in Northern Ireland. The recent Supreme Court decision striking down a law denying federal benets to married gay couples means he can petition for permanent residency. It was important for us that it be the rst day, said Marcus, 25, a Brown University medical student. Its a personal day for us, and its also a great political victory. As of Thursday, samesex couples can marry in 13

states and in Washington, D.C. The national gay rights group Freedom to Marry estimates that 30 percent of the U.S. population now lives in places where gay marriage is legal. In Minneapolis, an estimated 1,000 people packed into City Hall at midnight to celebrate 46 same-sex weddings ofciated by Mayor R.T. Rybak. Several Hennepin County judges performed 21 more in the City Councils chambers. I didnt expect to cry quite that hard, said a beaming Cathy ten Broeke, who with Margaret Miles was the rst gay couple to wed at City Hall. We do, the couple and their 5-year-old son, Louie,

said to cheers as they promised to be a family. Gov. Mark Dayton had proclaimed Aug. 1 to be Freedom to Marry Day in Minnesota. Celebrations in Rhode Island were more muted, which advocates said was probably because so many nearby states already allow same-sex marriage. Democratic Gov. Lincoln Chafee, who became one of the earliest prominent national supporters of legalizing gay marriage when he was a Republican U.S. senator, planned to attend a state lawmakers wedding later in the day. House Speaker Gordon Fox, who is gay, planned to ofciate. U.S. Rep. David Cicilline, one of the few openly gay members of Congress, stayed in Washington for the legislative session but issued a statement express-

ing support. A Washington, D.C.based group opposed to gay marriage, Alliance Defending Freedom, advised municipal clerks they could ask a colleague to issue licenses to samesex couples if they were opposed. There were no reports of that happening in either state. In some communi-

ties, excited clerks posed for photos with couples. Newport, R.I., City Clerk Kathleen Silvia gave kisses to Federico Santi and John Gacher, who have been together for 41 years and converted their civil union to a marriage Thursday morning. She called it a day of smooching. In Minnesota, budget ofcials estimated 5,000

gay couples would marry in the rst year. Voters there rejected a constitutional ban on gay marriage last fall, and the Legislature this spring moved to make it legal. Lawmakers in heavily Catholic Rhode Island passed the marriage law this spring after more than 16 years of efforts by samesex marriage supporters.

Postal service eyes alcohol deliveries to bolster business

Associated Press

WASHINGTON Special delivery from the post ofce beer, wine and spirits, if Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe has his way. In an interview with The Associated Press, Donahoe said Thursday delivery of alcoholic beverages is on his wish list as the agency considers ways to raise revenue and save money after losing $16 billion last year. He also said he endorses ending most door-to-door and

Saturday mail deliveries as a way to help stabilize the services nances. Donahoe said delivering alcohol has the potential to raise as much as $50 million a year. He mentioned how customers might want to, for example, mail bottles of wine home when they tour vineyards. Donahoe said his agency has looked at the possibility of using special boxes that would hold two, four or six bottles and ship for a at-rate anywhere in the country. Theres a lot of money to be made in shipping beer,

wine and spirits, Donahoe said. Wed like to be in that business. The Postal Service says mailing alcoholic beverages is currently restricted by law. Customers are even told to cover any logos or labels if they use alcoholic beverage boxes for shipments. The agency is also urging changes in how it delivers the mail. A House committee has passed legislation to stabilize the Postal Services ailing nances that would cut letter deliveries to ve days and phase out door-

to-door deliveries over 10 years. The bill does not include a provision to allow the agency to deliver alcohol. The Senate passed a postal reform bill last year that included a provision allowing the agency to deliver alcohol. The bill would require that such shipments would have to comply with any state laws where the shipment originated and was delivered. The measure also said the recipient would have to be at least 21 years old and would need to provide valid, government-

issued photo identication upon delivery. The agency faces $15 billion in losses this year and is working toward restructuring its retail, delivery and mail processing operations. We dont want to take any more debt on, Donahoe said. We want to be able to get protable, pay it down, just like any other business would, so that you stay strong for the future. The services losses are largely due to a decline in mail volume and a congressional requirement that it make advance payments to

cover expected health care costs for future retirees. About $11.1 billion of last years losses were due to the health care payments. Donahoe said, over the last decade, the mail volume at his agencys trademark blue boxes has dropped 60 percent. Thats our most protable mail, he said. That will continue to drop off because people pay bills online. And we understand that, its easy, its free, and so we have to continue to make changes. On a bright note,

Donahoe said the volume of packages the service handles has grown considerably in recent years, a trend he expects to continue. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee recently approved a plan for the service to gradually shift from door delivery to cluster box and curbside delivery, which includes mailboxes at the end of driveways. The agency has been moving toward curbside and cluster box delivery in new residential developments since the 1970s.

Independent reviews for military assaults

Last year a military jury convicted Air Force Lt. Col. James Wilkerson of aggravated sexual assault against a civilian woman who worked at his air base in Aviano, Italy. He was sentenced to spend a year in connement and be expelled from the military. But then his commander decided to toss out the verdict and keep Wilkerson. The trial was irrelevant. A convicted rapist was back in the good graces of the U.S. Air Force. And the victim? I was assaulted. I reported it. I endured the public humiliation and the end result is that it was all for nothing, she said in a statement after the decision. Her experience is not nearly as unusual as it ought to be. The Defense Department estimates that some 26,000 sexual assaults are committed each year by service personnel, against both women and men. One in every three female members of the military has been sexually assaulted, it reports. But the vast majority dont report the attacks. Why not? In many instances, those who have led complaints have gotten no action from their commanders; in some cases, they have been punished themselves. Sometimes, the person to whom they are required to report the crime is a friend of the attacker or even the attacker himself. According to a Pentagon survey, half of those who didnt report thought nothing would be done if they did. Air Force Sgt. Jennifer Smith told The New York Times she never reported any of the assaults she suffered in her 17 years in uniform because its a career ender to come forward. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., is pushing a bill that would take decisions about most serious crimes, including these sexual abuse cases, out of the hands of commanders and place them with professional military prosecutors. Some 44 senators are cosponsoring or endorsing the Military Justice Improvement Act, including Republicans Mark Kirk of Illinois, Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky. Illinois other senator, Democrat Dick Durbin, has not decided. The military opposes the change, arguing it would undermine discipline and cohesion. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno has argued that victims need to know that their commander holds offenders accountable, not some unknown third-party prosecutor. But commanders may be swayed by friendship, or they may let a soldiers military talents outweigh the interests of victims. Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey has acknowledged, You might argue that we have become a little too forgiving because, if a perpetrator shows up at a court-martial with a rack of ribbons and has four deployments and a Purple Heart, there is certainly the risk that we might be a little too forgiving of that particular crime. Under the Senate bill, commanders would retain the right to decide nonjudicial disciplinary action in cases that are not approved for prosecution. They would retain jurisdiction over serious offenses that are unique to the military, such as being absent without leave. Many countries, including Canada, Britain, Germany and Israel, have already adopted the approach proposed by Gillibrand. If this is so detrimental to good order and discipline, why do we trust our allies to be on the battleeld next to us? asked Greg Jacobs, a former Marine who is now the policy director of the Service Womens Action Network. After seeing a documentary exposing the abuses of the status quo, thenSecretary of Defense Leon Panetta transferred the decision about prosecutions from unit commanders to ofcers higher up the chain of command. His successor, Chuck Hagel, has asked Congress to change the rule allowing top commanders to overturn verdicts, as happened in the Wilkerson case. Sexual assault is as much the enemy of our men and women in uniform as the adversaries they face on the battleeld. Its time for Congress to make a priority of vanquishing that threat.

Councilman urges: Visit Swoyersville

As a Swoyersville council member, I would like to invite everyone to see what Swoyersville has to offer. I believe we have a lot to offer in our little town. For instance, try some home-baked goods from the Owen Street Bakery. Instead of heading to the area chain restaurants, try Murphys Pub, The Tipsy Turtle, Rose Dans Deli or Bingos Hoagies just to name a few. Before going to dinner, why not catch a play at the Music Box Theater, located at 196 Hughes St. There is always ne entertainment going on and its a great place for a date night. Nothing to do on a Friday night? Stop in and try your luck at bingo at the Swoyersville Hose Company Brodrick Station No. 279 on Slocum Street. You will be helping out the volunteers and a great cause. Also, watch for fundraisers for Swoyersville Hose Company No. 379, Maltby Station, as they have events throughout the year. Catch a drink at some of our local watering holes. Along with some mentioned above, we have The Black Diamond Tavern, Half Time Lounge, The Rec Room, Bayos Cafe, Hurleys Saloon, Knuckleheads, and many others to choose from. I would like to invite everyone to come to Swoyersville this weekend and join me at the Andrew Lawrence American Legion Post 644, 259 Shoemaker St., this Friday and Saturday from 3-11 p.m. as they host their bazaar with live entertainment Friday by Tom Tobin Band. On Saturday Swoyersville will also be rockin with the legendary Flaxy Morgan. Please come support a great cause. Everyone is invited! Join us for lots of food, drinks and live entertainment! As council member, I am working on a Swoyersville website that will promote all we have to offer so please stay tuned.

NSA leaks expose flaws beyond security issues

When he leaked secret information on the National Security Agencys massive surveillance efforts, Edward J. Snowden set in motion events that are still playing out. While he languishes as a U.S. fugitive with uncertain status in Russia, his countrymen have been debating the constitutional limits of the government spying he exposed. The former intelligence contractors actions have also inadvertently put the focus on another uncomfortable truth for Americans back home to consider: How much the international prestige of the United States has been tarnished over the past decade or so by the unorthodox excesses in the ght against terrorism. The telling moment came in a letter sent by U.S. Attorney General Eric J. Holder Jr. to his Russian counterpart, Justice Minister Alexander Konovalov. In an attempt to counter the fears that Mr. Snowden himself expressed about his possible fate, Mr. Holder assured the Russian government that the fugitive would not be subject to torture or the death penalty if he were returned to the United States. It has come to this: The government of the United States must explain itself to Vladimir Putins Russia, where raw power is used to stie dissent and foes of corruption nd themselves imprisoned or worse. Further, the cynical leaders of Russia do not have much reason to believe U.S. assurances. They will remember that in 2007 President George W. Bush declared with a ne disregard for the truth: This government does not torture people, a ction that has not survived revelations about waterboarding and renditions of terror suspects to foreign countries for torture there. On security policy, the Obama administration has yet to show it is much different from its predecessor. To be sure, Mr. Holders letter is a promise that Mr. Snowden would be handled in the traditional U.S. judicial system with its constitutional protections not in the nether world of CIA detention centers or Guantanamo Bay (still not closed). But implicitly having to make that distinction underscores the problem. Once upon a time, Americas reputation for decency preceded it. Now we have to tell leaders like the autocratic Mr. Putin that our behavior will be above reproach really, cross our hearts. The Dallas Morning News

limits lead to more crashes and road rage. You want people to be relaxed, spaced out, and driving at a comfortable rate. Maximum safety occurs when speed limits are set to the 85th percentile free-owing trafc speed, realistic speed cushions are used during enforcement, and engineering improvements are made to roads. None of these items are in the cited state bill or the others. The current Middle Road would never be built as-is today, due to various problems in that area. Another bill of concern is state HB1580 to legalize school bus passing cameras to supposedly stop illegal bus passes, whereby tickets are automatically mailed out. If this is a concern, all you need is to have a plastic breakaway arm come out of the bus left side one second after the ashing reds appear to block the oncoming lane. I have never seen an illegal pass in my lifetime, though. The common crash is a bus running over the students. These issues are more proof of the onslaught against the safe-driving motorist. You never get the full story. Please contact your two state legislators and the governor and ask them to oppose the above anti-driving bills, as well as other automated trafc enforcement bills. All of this should be banned. Lastly, I strongly recommend the people who are on the wrong side of these issues check out the National Motorists Association so you can get unbiased information. Things are not always as they appear.

absolute power. States rights should not include the ability to revoke citizens rights or previously granted citizens rights in that state. States have recently tried to revoke voting rights, worker rights, health care rights, abortion rights and environmental protections. This is states rights run amok. It is the absolute power of states that is to be feared and needs to have limits. Citizens are protected from the federal government by the restrictions that are in the Constitution. Citizens are not likewise protected from the states. The federal government needs to be the watchdog on state governments to prevent this. Congress should broaden citizens protections with a new civil rights law, which would review and void all state laws or actions enacted by any state that attempted to revoke citizens rights. Unfortunately, we also have congressional actions and Supreme Court decisions using the conservative philosophy to disregard citizens rights. Rights granted and then prevented are just empty words. Voiding rights prevents individual responsibility and freedom from being exercised.

Thanks to Geisinger for care of loved one

On behalf of myself and my family, I would like to thank everyone at Medical Oncology Associates for their kindness, compassion and professionalism shown to my wife, Anne Skovira, during her treatment from 1998 until 2012. Anne passed away on July 9, 2013, from complications of stage IV breast cancer. During Annes illness, we encountered many caring people in the ofce, any of which were willing to go above and beyond the call of duty despite the hour or the effort required. We will forever be grateful to Drs. Greenwald, Saidman, the nursing and ancillary staff, front desk, Carol Greenwald and anyone else I may have forgotten to mention. Your ofce gave us 14 years with Anne because of your efforts; you should be very proud of your accomplishment! May God bless you as you continue your efforts to assist patients who are aficted with this horrible disease.

Federal oversight prevents state abuse

Conservatives have long extolled the values of their conservative philosophy. Yet there are some problems. Conservatives say they believe in individual responsibility and freedom. Yet as soon as they are in charge, they are busy repealing other peoples rights. When a party gets control of the legislative and executive branches of a state government, it effectively becomes a dictatorship and can do whatever it wants. They pretend to be for civil rights but then they repeal the rights in practice. Even more insidious, they make laws to void federally guaranteed rights. Citizens are left with only the right to go to court after the right has been lost in practice. There is no timely remedy for the rights that are lost. The states cannot be trusted with

From page 1A schedule a property for sale. Though sheriffs sales are usually for mortgage foreclosures, they also are the venue to acquire real estate based on outstanding liens, he said. The deadline has passed to submit paperwork to get properties listed in sheriff sales scheduled today and Oct. 4, which means the earliest sale for the Sterling property would be Dec. 6, he said. Court paperwork for the Dec. 6 sale must be led by Sept. 12. Sheriffs sales are open to other bidders, but its unlikely other prospective buyers would surface because they would have to pay the city and also accept other liens attached to the property. Countys stake County Chief Solicitor C. David Pedri said the county holds second lien position with its claim of $6 million that had been loaned to CityVest, which largely used those funds to make the parcel larger, pay a consultant and tear down an attached hotel structure. Even though the county lien is for a higher amount, the county must accept second lien position because state municipal law gives precedence to costs associated with demolition, Pedri said. County Manager Robert Lawton also publicly disclosed the county would move to the second slot if the city handled demolition. If and when the property is sold to a private develop-

Though the re was ruled an accident, museum ofcials must wait for a nal copy of the re marshals report to proceed with an insurance claim on the structure, Morin said. Morin is optimistic the house will be rebuilt but said it will take time for the planning and approval process. We believe the original house is salvageable. It looks structurally stable, Morin said.

er, the county will receive any proceeds left after the city lien is satised, Pedri said. CityVest has remained silent since it led a legal notice of its plans to dissolve in April. Scranton attorney George Reihner, of Wright & Reihner P.C., is handling the proposed dissolution and could not be reached for comment. The legal notice stated CityVest will be ling articles of dissolution with the Pennsylvania Department of State because the nonprot is now engaged in winding up and settling its affairs so its existence can be terminated. CityVest status unclear Department of State Deputy Press Secretary Matthew Keeler did not locate any CityVest ling to dissolve.

Its unclear if a dissolution could be approved when CityVest owes $6 million to the county and what will be hundreds of thousands of dollars to the city. The dissolution form requires nonprot corporations to indicate if they have any outstanding liabilities or court judgments and, if so, whether provisions have been made to pay and resolve them. Nonprots also must send notice of their plans to dissolve by certied or registered mail to all known creditors and claimants. The Department of State also requires clearance certicates from the state revenue, and labor and industry departments verifying no taxes are owed by the dissolving corporation, Keeler said. A revenue spokesperson

said the department does not publicly disclose if clearance certicates are issued. Lawton said Thursday the county had tried to enter into a demolition agreement with the city and CityVest so ownership issues could be resolved in advance. However, the agreement zzled because the county wouldnt accept CityVests demand for a special liability release protecting the nonprot from any future claims or actions. The city ended up identifying funding to handle demolition on its own. Though the city will supervise post-demolition clean-up of the Sterling lot, Leighton stressed CityVest will remain responsible for maintenance and liability on the cleared 4-acre parcel until the ownership changes.

safety fencing. Morin has called Gera a treasure and said he is missed. Gera often shared his memories of life in the patch town with museum visitors. Mr. Gera would be welcomed back, Morin said. Gera is struggling to accept the pace of government. I really am bitter with the state, he said. He blames the re on electrical problems and said he had warned museum ofcials about the need for new wiring. Gera also questions the low water pressure that hampered reghters battling the blaze. Morin said a review identifying electrical improvements needed at multiple museum properties had been under way before the re and will be implemented as funding is available. The actual preservation will always be ongoing in a complex this size, Morin said.

pied. Morin said he is focusing on a long-range plan to repair, maintain and preserve structures with limited funds. The state is committed to the future of Eckley, but were not expecting any increases in state funding. Im looking at how we can manage essential expenses and services differently for the future, Morin said, noting other state historic sites are wrestling with the same dilemma. Multimillion- dollar improvements would be required to signicantly boost the water pressure, but Morin said the ow met acceptable standards during the blaze. Even though it was disastrous, we still didnt lose the home. Emergency crews are aware of the pressure issues, he said. For now, Gera must be content with occasional visits to his old garden and picnic table. He bowed his head at the thought of facing a new chapter somewhere else. Its my home my sentiment.

Speaking Wednesday before the state Senate Transportation Committee, Schoch said the restrictions will slow down the deterioration of the bridges. The measure aims to allow the continued use of the bridges in the absence of much-needed repairs. Higher fuel taxes and fees for drivers would pay for the work, but legislation on the increases has been mired in Harrisburg. The Associated Press reported Gov.

He took offense, and he was hell-bent on revenge, Michelle Boice said. A message left for Musial at the police department was not returned Thursday afternoon. According to an afdavit led in the case, Richard and Jason Boice and Sult all admitted to the purchases, but told investigators they reimbursed the authority for the items although the paybacks ranged from immediately after the transactions to more than a year later. Calls to authority solicitor Tom OConnor were not returned Wednesday and Thursday. Questions raised Michelle Boice questioned why it took four years to investigate $800 worth of purchases for which the authority had been reimbursed. If they were thieves, and they were on the take, dont you think it would have been bigger? It would have been more than a battery and a quart of oil, she said of her husbands purchases, which troopers said amounted to

$115. Troopers said Jason Boice made $670 worth of purchases: $177 for a water pump and $492 for a furnace. Sult, meanwhile, was charged over $31.74 worth of purchases: $6.77 for a headlight and $24.97 for a fan. The three were notied of the charges by mail from the ofce of District Judge James Tupper. Preliminary hearings in the case have been set for Sept. 5, court ofcials conrmed Thursday. The afdavit indicated the defendants told police they used authority accounts for several reasons, from simple convenience to taking advantage of the authoritys tax-exempt status or seeking access to items that were only for sale to contractors and municipalities. Maybe thats something thats not right, but its something thats done, Michelle Boice said. The board was aware of it. After (the allegations) they stopped the practice. According to troopers, OConnor advised Sult and the Boices after the allega-

tions arose that anyone making personal purchases using authority accounts should reimburse the accounts by writing a check. Attorney Peter Moses, who is representing Richard Boice, said his client maintains his innocence and believes the case is politically motivated. The other two defendants also have legal representation, Moses said. Attorney Ferris Webby, who is representing Jason Boice, said he had not yet seen the afdavit on Thursday and declined comment on the charges. Efforts to reach an attorney for Sult were unsuccessful. Michelle Boice said she was glad the charges would put to rest rumors that her family members were involved in large-scale graft. For four years, some people believed that tens of thousands of dollars were missing from the authority. Its less than $1,000, and its not missing, she said. Despite the case, Richard Boice plans to continue his run for mayor, his wife said, even though this will probably hurt his chances of success.

plan increased spending by $2.5 billion a year. But neither the governor nor leaders of the House Republican majority endorsed the Senate plan, leaving the issue unresolved as legislators left Harrisburg for the summer. PennDOT said Pennsylvania has 25,000 state-owned bridges, the third largest number in the country. The state, however, is the leader in the number of bridges classied as structurally decient. The classication indicates resented by Jeffrey Yelen. Pierantoni also reduced Johnstons original bail amounts $150,000 and $100,000 to $75,000 straight on the two different cases Johnston faces on related charges of aggravated assault and rearms offenses. Yelen said Thursday Johnston would be able to post his bail if it were around $5,000 10 percent of $50,000 but that anything higher would be harder to post. Johnston said Thursday at this time he is unable to post his bail. Pierantoni said Johnston will remain in the county prison. If he is able to post bail, Pierantoni said, he must wear an electronic

there is deterioration to one or more of a bridges major components, but it is safe for travel. PennDOT added that the American Association of State Highway Transportation Ofcials set bridge weight-limit posting criteria that range between where the structures ability to bear loads in excess of 80,000 pounds or factor of safety starts to decline, to where its reduced by half. At the halfway point the bridge can remain open without having to post weight limits, but at the risk of accelerated deterioration. PennDOT said bridges that were scheduled for repairs would be added to the posted list because the money is not available to restore them back to that acceptable factor of safety. The weight limits could affect the routes of truckers, school buses and emergency vehicles, Schoch noted. monitor. Johnston said he has a cousin who still lives in the area, but his wife has since moved to Ohio. These are very serious offenses, Assistant District Attorney Jim McMonagle said Thursday. He shot up the place. He could be looking at mandatory minimum (sentences). At the time of Wimms sentencing in September 2007, attorneys said the shooting appeared to be related to drug trafcking. A defense attorney who had represented Wimms, Demetrius Fannick, said at the time it appeared as though it was drug or territory-related. Some people were selling drugs where they werent supposed to.

At the time of Wimms sentencing, prosecutors said Johnston received the more severe sentence because none of Wimms bullets struck anyone and Johnston had a prior criminal record. Pierantoni scheduled a pre-trial hearing date for Aug. 22, and is allowing Johnston to get another attorney. He is currently rep-

With playoffs looming,Monday looks like day for announcement

Players facing suspensions could iar with the process told The in the parking lot and rolling Associated Press on Thursday. down the window. However, be back in time for postseason
AP Sports Writer


NEW YORK Looming playoffs could force an end to negotiations in baseballs latest drug scandal as pressure builds to impose penalties so stars can still make the postseason. Monday appears to be the deadline for Alex Rodriguez and 13 others to accept suspensions for their ties to the Biogenesis of America antiaging clinic. While A-Rod is expected to get a lengthy ban, a penalty starting that day would allow Texas All-Star outelder Nelson Cruz to return for October. Major League Baseball is prepared to issue two simultaneous announcements no later than Monday, a person famil-

One would list players who accept suspensions; the other would name those disciplined without deals, but who could challenge penalties before an arbitrator. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized. Most players face 50-game suspensions for their links to the now-closed Florida clinic, which has been accused of distributing banned performanceenhancing drugs. But baseball is threatening to kick Rodriguez out for life unless the three-time AL MVP agrees to a long ban, perhaps around 200 games. Rodriguez appeared ready to talk Thursday as he was leaving the teams minor league complex in Tampa, Fla., waving a group of writers to his car

when he saw a second group with TV cameras approaching, he said: Ill talk to you guys, but no cameras. Rodriguez closed the window and waited a moment, then left without saying another word. Baseballs highest-paid player with a $28 million salary, Rodriguez played in a simulated game and saw 31 pitches over six at-bats, played third and ran bases. The Yankees expect A-Rod to be accused of recruiting other athletes for the clinic, attempting to obstruct MLBs investigation, and not being truthful with MLB in the past. Baseball has considered suspending him for violations of its labor contract and drug agreement, which would cause him to start serving his penalty before the

case would go to arbitration. Sidelined following hip surgery in January and then a strained quadriceps, the 38-year-old third baseman hopes to return to the Yankees in a few days. He is to play today and Saturday at Double-A Trenton, putting himself in position to rejoin New York for Mondays series opener at the Chicago White Sox if hes not banned. Barring a rainout this weekend, Cruzs Rangers would have exactly 50 games remaining before they play at the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night. If he les a grievance, as a rst offender, the penalty would be delayed until after a decision by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz. But the lengthy legal process likely would risk his eligibility for the playoffs and

the start of next season. Cruz said Thursday he hadnt made any decision about a possible appeal. Asked whether he was told specically what penalty could be forthcoming, Cruz responded, No, I cannot tell you. Sorry. Detroit shortstop Jhonny Peralta is the other targeted All-Star on a pennant contender, and the Tigers would have 53 games left before playing at Cleveland on Monday. Pantoliano Another All-Star shortstop, San Diegos Everth Cabrera, could serve all of a 50-game suspension this year if he begins with the Padres game against Baltimore on Tuesday. Others facing discipline include injured Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli and Seattle catcher Jesus Montero, who is in the minor leagues with Triple-A Tacoma.

Logano hopes to get closer to Chase


LONG POND The drivethru window is closing soon and the line is still quite long. Joey Logano is among those trying to get there before its slammed shut. Logano heads to Pocono Raceway this weekend as one of several drivers battling for a spot in the 12-driver Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship. The field for Sundays 400 will be set today in qualifying that starts at 3:10 p.m. Sundays race begins at 1 p.m. There are six more races left until the Chase field is set. The top-10 drivers in points make the Chase along with the two drivers 11-20 in points with the most victories. (Ties for those two spots are broken via drivers points). As is stands, seven slots appear to be locked up for the Chase barring unforeseen collapses. But the separation from eighth-place Greg Biffle to 19th-place Paul Menard is just 45 points. Logano is 18th in points and just 35 back of Jeff Gordon, who holds the 10th spot. The driver of the No. 22 Ford isnt about to gamble and go all-out for a victory knowing there is some wiggle room. No, no, I think we can do it in points, said Logano, who is in his first year with owner Roger Penske after spending four seasons with owner Joe Gibbs. We can break ourselves in the top 10. We did this already once coming from more than 35 points back and brought ourselves into the top 10 and in a shorter amount of time than weve got now. Logano needs to look no further than his recent races. He has gone from 10th in points to 18th in the last four races as consecutive 40th-place finishes at Daytona and Loudon proved costly. Prior to the swoon, he went from 18th to 10th in five races. The goal is to stay even

NEW YORK A new play about the New York Yankees will star The Sopranos star Joe Pantoliano as Yogi Berra, Francois Battiste as Reggie Jackson, Chris Henry Coffey as Joe DiMaggio, Christopher Jackson as Derek Jeter and Bill Dawes as Mickey Mantle. Bronx Bombers will make its world premiere on Sept. 17 at Primary Stages at The Duke theater on 42nd Street. Its conceived by Fran Kirmser, commissioned by Tony Ponturo, and written and directed by Eric Simonson, the team that put together Broadways Lombardi and Magic/Bird. Producers said Thursday the play will examine how baseballs most storied franchise has always remained focused on maintaining a great team, even when dealing with some of the games most iconic and tempestuous personalities. Casting for Babe Ruth and Carmen Berra will be revealed later.

keel. Easier said than done, though, Logano said. You know, obviously, yes, when youre moving up through the points, its obviously when its the easiest. You get a lot of confidence. You get a lot of momentum, and everyones attitudes are great. You have two bad finishes,

yes, its going to it hurts. It takes some wind out of your sail for sure. But you have to find the silver lining, wherever it is, and look forward. The more you dwell on the stuff, it just hurts the team. Pocono Raceway could provide some momentum. Logano won from the pole

there in June 2012, posting his second of two Cup victories in his five-year career. He led 49 of 160 laps, the most of any driver. Of course, a silver lining means a dark cloud, something Logano doesnt want to see today. Qualifying for the race this past June at Pocono

was rained out and he had to start 21st based on owners points. He finished 10th. Todays forecast is for sunny skies with a high in the mid-70s and a 20-percent chance of rain. I think it would be a great See NASCAR | 4B

Clutch, difficult catches helped set Carter apart

AP Pro Football Writer


MINNEAPOLIS Cris Carters entry into the exclusive club in Canton will be commemorated with a bronze head-and-shoulders bust, like all of the Pro Football Hall of Fame members before him. His hands might be a more appropriate body part to feature. Over 16 seasons in the NFL, with re and grit and air, Carter exemplied just what a wide receiver is paid to do: catch the ball. After overcoming some well-publicized troubles in his early years, Carter became a highlight-reel xture and unappable performer in the 1990s for the Minnesota Vikings.

He wasnt the fastest, the biggest or the most elusive of the bunch, but he made happen some of the most impossible grabs and often did so at the most opportune times. Tiptoeing both feet at the sideline and successfully pulling in a pass in the split-second before falling out of bounds. Leaping to his feet after being whistled down and sticking his arm straight out to signal a rst down. Jumping in front of two defenders to corral a ball in the end zone with his ngertips. Those are the images of what set Carter apart. After missing the cut ve times for the Hall of Fame, Carter was nally voted in. Hell be inducted on Saturday with this years group about a 3-hour drive from where he

grew up in Middletown, Ohio. I catch everything that the normal people catch and I catch a few things that no one catches. Thats what I used to say to myself before every game, Carter said recently. Four of his former Vikings teammates, Chris Doleman, John Randle, Randall McDaniel and Gary Zimmerman, preceded Carter with enshrinement over the past ve years. Carter retired after the 2002 season behind only Jerry Rice for alltime receptions and touchdowns. Hes fourth in those categories now, passed by Tony Gonzalez and Marvin Harrison in catches and Randy Moss and Terrell Owens in scores. Wherever he See CARTER | 4B

Sensitivity training set for Eagles WR Cooper

The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA The Philadelphia Eagles are setting up Riley Cooper with sensitivity training after the wide receiver was caught on video making a racial slur. In meeting with Riley yesterday, we decided together that his next step will be to seek outside assistance to help him fully understand the impact of his words and actions, the team said in a statement Thursday. He needs to reect. As an organization, we will provide the resources he needs to do so. Cooper apologized profusely Wednesday after a video of him using the N-word at a Kenny Chesney concert last month surfaced on the Internet. The Eagles immediately ned him, and the league plans no further discipline. I know Riley made a heinous mistake, coach Chip Kelly said. I was appalled by it. I was actually shocked by it because since Cooper Ive been here since April, thats not the Riley Cooper I know. He accepted responsibility for it and he has to live with it, but I hope at some point in time well have a chance to move on from it. But right now I dont think its going to be something thats going to go away very quickly. Cooper, who grew up in Clearwater, Fla., was selected in the fth round of the 2010 draft by the Eagles out of the University of Florida. He has just 46 catches and ve touchdowns in three years with the Eagles, but has been practicing with the starters since Jeremy Maclins season-ending injury last week. Teammates Michael Vick, Jason Avant and others expressed forgiveness for Cooper. LeSean McCoy also said he forgives Cooper, but he doesnt view him the same anymore. Just on a friendship level, and as a person, I cant really respect somebody like that, McCoy said. I think as a team, we need to move past it. There are some things that are going to be hard to work with, to be honest. Cooper spoke to the media again after practice Thursday, telling them his meeting with teammates a night earlier was extremely emotional. Theres been no friction, Cooper told reporters. I respect a lot of the guys that came up to me yesterday and today. Numerous, numerous, numerous players said, Coop, we know thats not the type of person you are. We respect you, and were behind you, and if you need anything, call me, text me, you know Im there for you. That denitely felt good. Cooper could have trouble outside the locker room when hes on the eld.

Ross back better than ever

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Aaron Ross return to the New York Giants seems to agree with the veteran cornerback. The 30-year-old Ross is back after a one-year stint in Jacksonville and has been one of the early surprises at training camp. In the rst week of camp, Ross has intercepted two passes, defended a couple of others and been a presence for a secondary that gave up 254.3 yards last season, ranking 28th in the league. The way Ross is playing, there is a chance that he could push incumbent Corey Webster for a starting job. Webster struggled last season and agreed to a $3 million pay cut for the nal year of his contract, lowering his salary to $4 million. Prince Amukamara is set at the other corner.

Brees stunned by takeout tip talk

METAIRIE, LA. Drew Brees says hes amazed his $3 tip on a $74 takeout order last month has become a talking point on national television and the Internet. The quarterback was in the locker room at Saints headquarters Thursday morning when he noticed a discussion on a network morning show about tipping on takeout orders, referencing a photograph of his takeout receipt that was circulated online. Brees said he gures the person who initially photographed the receipt did so innocently because he visits the San Diego-area restaurant regularly and poses for photos with staff.

Linebackers key to the Dallas defense

AP Sports Writer

Cowboys counting on Carter,Lee

ending injuries Lee with a badly damaged toe in the sixth game at Carolina and Carter with a dislocated elbow on Thanksgiving against Washington. But the defense ultimately faltered without them. The Cowboys couldnt stop Drew Brees passing game and got run over by Washington rookie Alfred Morris in a pair of season-ending losses that kept them out of the playoffs for the third straight year. Carter and Lee arent watching anymore, though. Theyre at the center of a defensive makeover that started soon after the season, when the Cowboys red defensive coordinator Rob Ryan and replaced him with Monte Kifn so they could return to the more linebacker-friendly 4-3 defense after nearly a decade in the 3-4. When youre playing the 4-3 defense, those (linebackers) are protected a little bit more, coach Jason Garrett said. They gotta get to the football and make plays. Both have shown they can. Lee has a knack for interceptions, something that was sorely missing last season on a defense that tied a franchise low with seven. Lee has that many in 35 career games, a high number for a linebacker. Carter could have led the Cowboys in tackles last season if he hadnt been injured. His strength is speed, and hell get his best chance to show it in the new scheme because one of the weakside linebackers biggest jobs is running down plays away from him. I think guys are doing it well, Carter said. Coaches kind of introduced us a little slow just to get guys the whole grasp of the whole scheme. Now were out here just ying around, getting to the ball. Carter and Lee joined the Cowboys a year apart and followed similar paths. Both were second-round

OXNARD, CALIF. Sean Lee dismisses talk of how good the Dallas defense could be if he and Bruce Carter started together at linebacker for a full season. 49ERS It hasnt happened yet. So until it does and until the Cowboys get back to the playoffs Lees not listening. Until you win a Super SANTA CLARA, CALIF. Injuries Bowl, until youve got it on are suddenly piling up fast for the San tape week to week, it means Francisco 49ers in training camp. nothing, Lee said. Thats All-Pro linebacker Patrick Willis was wearing a black cast around the base of all hype. If we lean on that his right hand and wrist and was among hype, were never going to be good. more than a dozen players not parThe Cowboys are counting ticipating in practice Thursday. Barely on this playmaking pair to be 45 minutes into the workout, trainers carted cornerback Chris Culliver off the good. Dallas won three straight eld with an apparent left knee injury. Willis injured his hand during one-on- games last season when both one blocking drills Wednesday. He stood were sidelined by seasonon the sidelines the rest of practice with his wrist and hand heavily wrapped. Cullivers injury appeared even more serious. He was covering a punt in a non-contact drill when he went down in BRETT MARTEL pain.

Willis, Culliver injured at camp

draft picks who played quite a bit as rookies but never started. Both earned starting jobs going into their second seasons. When Lee injured his toe last year, Carter took over the defensive play-calling on the eld. Even though he missed the nal ve games, Carters rst season as a starter did plenty to help him prepare for a leading role. A whole lot more comfortable, he said. The more years you play, the more experience you gain, it just makes the game a lot slower for you. Especially for me, a guy coming off an injury. Lee has missed at least one game in each of his three seasons after an injury-lled career at Penn State. Last years injury when he got his foot stuck awkwardly in a pile came after he had a career-high 21 tackles against Seattle and just a week after he tripled his career best in quarterback pressures with six.

ENGLEWOOD, COLO. It happens to so many of the great cornerbacks and Champ Bailey knows it will happen to him, too. Entering his 15th year in the NFL and still in search of the Super Bowl title that is the only piece missing from a Hall of Fame-bound career, Bailey knows the move from cornerback to safety is inevitable for defensive backs trying to prolong their careers. Youve got to look at history, Bailey told The Associated Press after practice on Thursday. Ronnie Lott. Rod Woodson. Aeneas Williams. They all did it and they all did it before I did. History says this is about that time. I understand that and Im not naive about it. Lott was 26 when he made the move a small detour on his way to the Hall of Fame. Williams was 33. Woodson was 34. Bailey turned 35 in the offseason. He knows the whispers and questions get louder with each passing year. Every time he gets beaten badly and that happened twice in the playoff loss to Baltimore last year its not simply a bad play, but rather a possible sign that his career is dwindling. Every time the Broncos sign or draft another cornerback and that happened a handful of times this offseason its not simply a transaction but rather a possible sign the Broncos are looking for his eventual replacement. All of which may be true, Bailey concedes. But nobodys going to determine when I move if I dont feel like its the right time, he said. Itll denitely be a decision and, whether Im here or somewhere else, it has to be the right t. Thro ugh the rst week of this, his 10th preseason with the Broncos, Bailey and Denver still look to be the right t for each other, the way they have been since Bailey arrived in Denver in a trade with Washington for Clinton Portis in the 2004 offseason. Bailey is lining up in his usual spot on the corner, sparring with members of Denvers loaded receiving corps namely, Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker. In deference to the mileage on those thirty-something legs, the Broncos are limiting his time on the practice eld, the same way they have the last few seasons. I think thats going to help in the long run, Bailey said. But his time on the sideline isnt down time.

The wife likes it long, he said. Ryan learned defense and much of what he knows about football from his father, Buddy Ryan, who won Super Bowls as a defensive coach with the New York Jets and Chicago Bears, and who was head coach of three playoff teams in Philadelphia, all of them known for having one of the best defenses in the NFL. Ryan said he and his brother Rex, the head coach of the Jets, both tend to work collaboratively with players because of their fathers inuence.

Ryan spent the past two seasons in Dallas, where his defenses ranked in the middle of the league in yards allowed 14th in 2011 and 18th in 2012. He was red after last season, but was not out of work long. Saints head coach Sean Payton, looking to change his teams scheme from a 4-3 (four linemen, three linebackers) to a 3-4, hired Ryan in early February. Payton, who has been known to work closely with star quarterback Drew Brees on offensive game plans, said Ryans approach toward soliciting player input ts with the Saints overall approach.

From page 1B can maintain its sevenyear grip on the BCS title. Manziel, who won the Heisman Trophy as a freshman, and Clowney are regarded as favorites to claim the leagues fth Heisman in seven years. But like Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin said of his team, its time to hit the reset button. Or at least the challengers of Saban and the twotime defending national champion Tide are hoping that button is working. So are the other power conferences, for that matter. Sabans peers arent backing down. LSUs Les Miles: I like us in any game. South Carolinas Spurrier, in humble-condent mode: We may fall at on our face but thats what were going to try to do, try to win the conference. Win the SEC, and a national title shot seems likely to come. Georgia defensive end Garrison Smiths take on the SEC: Crystal balls dont win crystal trophies. Theres no telling which team is going to come from where with the amount of talent, Smith said. Nobody can predict the future. 5 THINGS TO WATCH 1: CHASING THE TIDE: Alabama might be the team to beat nationally after claiming three of the past four championships, but navigating the competitive SEC is a challenge for any team. Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M are in pursuit, and so are Georgia, South Carolina and Florida. All four nished last season among the nations top nine teams. 2. MADE-FOR-TV GAMES: This list clearly begins with the Sept. 14 rematch in College Station between Alabama and Texas A&M, the only team to beat the Tide last season. That game was a Heisman moment for Manziel. Alabama gets a bye week to change gears for the no-huddle offense. A week earlier, defending East champion Georgia tries to avenge a 35-7 loss to South Carolina. Florida and LSU, perhaps somewhat overlooked in the preseason, meet on Oct. 12 a year after Will Muschamps team managed to end the Tigers 18-game regular-season win streak, 14-6. 3. SEC NEWBIES: Arkansas nabbed a proven winner in Bret Bielemma, Auburn landed offensive whiz Gus Malzahn, Kentucky got a spark with Mark Stoops and Tennessee turned to Butch Jones, who is already making waves on the recruiting trail. Now, if only all four of the leagues new head coaches can nd a starting quarterback. In the meantime, its no coincidence that those teams had the SECs four most generous defenses before the bosses made changes at the top. The result: A combined mark of 3-29 in league play, $15 million in buyouts and fresh starts. 4. RISING STOCK: Vanderbilt is coming off its best record since 1915, going 9-4 two years after a second straight two-win season led to the hiring of James Franklin. Back-to-back bowl games is also a rst for the Commodores, who have gone from doormats to respected foe under the ever-condent coach. Theyre led by one of the SECs top wide receivers in Jordan Matthews. Mississippis turnaround in Hugh Freezes rst season was impressive, too. The Rebels won seven games, including the BBVA Compass Bowl. 5. YOUTH MOVEMENT: From vestar newcomers to talented players with a year under their belt, the SEC is full of youngsters with the potential to emerge as stars. Missouri wide receiver and prized 2012 signee Dorial GreenBeckham racked up 21 catches for 267 yards and four touchdowns in the nal ve games. Alabamas Yeldon ran for 258 yards in the SEC and BCS championship games plus freshman runner Derrick Henry, linebacker Reuben Foster and tight end O.J. Howard could develop signicant roles. Ole Miss defensive end Robert Nkemdiche, defensive tackle Lavon Hooks and wideout Laquon Treadwell are freshmen to watch, along with Florida cornerback Vernon Hargreaves and defensive ends Carl Lawson (Auburn) and Chris Jones (Mississippi State) among others.

RailRiders win another extra inning affair

Hanover advances at Post 644 tourney

Collin Cook drove in the go-ahead run in the top of the seventh inning as Hanover No. 1 downed West Pittston 7-3 at the Swoyersville American Legion Post 644 U-12 Tournament on Thursday. Jeremy Callahan had two hits and scored on Cooks gamewinner. Shaun Gurnari also had two hits and a run. Andrew Janosky had two hits for West Pittston, and John Angella, Zac Noscavage and Pat Musinski each scored a run. Abrecht Memorial 8-9 baseball Northwest 7, Mountain Top Red 0 Joey Noss (4 1/3 innings) and Hunter Gmiter (1 2/3 innings) combined on a one-hitter for Northwest. Noss fanned 10 as only Collin Wills managed a hit for Mountain Top. Gmiter added four strikeouts.

INDIANAPOLIS Having played at least one extra inning game in its last three series Scranton/Wilkes-Barre seemed destined to get in an overtime affair with Indianapolis in the current set. That came on Thursday night at Victory Field. And like their previous two games that went extras, the RailRiders came out victorious with 2-1 victory in 12 innings when David Adams (3 for 6) singled in Alberto Gonzalez. Caleb Cotham pitched his best game of the season for the RailRiders tossing six shutout innings before letting a pair of batters reach base in the seventh, leading to the only run he allowed. After Chase dArnaud and Matt Hague singled to begin the seventh, Cotham was pulled in favor of lefty Josh Spence, who got Andrew Lambo on strikes. But with runners on rst and third, Hazleton native Russ Canzler came through against SWB reliever Dellin Betances hitting a sacrice y to bring in the run giving the Indians a 1-0 lead. Down to their last chance in the ninth, the RailRiders nally got to the Indians when J.R. Murphy led off with a double as Indianapolis right elder Lambo ran through the wall and appeared to have caught the ball, but it was ruled a ground-rule double. Two batters later after moving to third on a single by Thomas Neal, Murphy scored on a wild pitch to even the score at 1-1 and force

free baseball. After Adams hit in the top of the inning, Canzler came up in the bottom of inning 12 with a chance to tie or win the game for Indianapolis. There was a runner on rst with two outs and Canzler was fanned by Jim Miller, who pitched the nal 1 2-3 scoreless frames to pick up the win and improve to 2-5. 2014 Schedule Revealed To start the 2013 season, the RailRiders rst seven games were scheduled to be played at reconstructed PNC Field. As the 2014 International League schedule was revealed on Thursday, Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre will play its rst seven games of that campaign on the road when the season begins on Thursday, April 3. The rst home game of 2014 is set to be a week later on Thursday, April 10. The season opener and the rst home game will both be games against I.L. North Division rival Syracuse. The RailRiders also announced start times for the 2014 schedule. In April and May, Monday through Thursday night games will begin at 6:35. Friday and Saturday night will be at 7:05 and that will be the normal start times for every evening contest beginning in June.

From page 1B was always going to be a product of his erce determination. Raised in poverty in a fourroom apartment with a single mother and ve siblings, Carter couldve easily strayed from his Hall of Fame track. He was ineligible for his senior year at Ohio State because of a federal investigation for organized crime that revealed he signed early with an agent. He forced Philadelphia coach Buddy Ryan, who famously said of Carter, All he does is catch touchdowns, to cut him after the 1989 season. Then, Carters abuse of alcohol and drugs were destroying his career, let alone his life. But with arguably the best investment in franchise history, the Vikings paid the $100 waiver fee to claim Carter. Ten years later, he had been picked for eight Pro Bowls, made the playoffs eight times and, in the latter part of his career, helped lead one of the most potent passing games in the league. The Vikings never reached the Super Bowl with him but were NFC runners up twice in that span. Carter hatched an offseason conditioning plan with his personal trainer to fuel all those accomplishments, using Rice, the San Francisco star, as his motivation and a timezone advantage as his reward. The addictive behavior that fueled his chemical dependency worked in his favor on the eld. By the time Jerry Rice woke up I was done with my work, Carter said, adding: I knew that if Jerry Rice was ahead of me, that day I had caught up to him a little bit.

From page 1B I think it would be a great opportunity, and I look at the rst race we had in Pocono this year, we had a really good car, Logano said. Qualifying got rained out. So we had to start a little further to the back than we wanted to, and we fought all day to get our car to be good enough up front and get that track position, and I think we nished tenth. I felt like we were a lot better than that.

Big night for Lochte, Magnussen, US golden girls

Kosuke Hagino claimed the silver, more than a second behind, and Brazils Thiago Pereira took bronze. Lochte, who took a long break after London and cut back his training to work on a reality TV show, hardly looked in peak form while swimming the second leg on the 4x100 free relay team that nished second behind France. That was followed by an even bigger disappointment fourth place in the 200 freestyle. Now, after something of an epiphany, he nally has reason to scream his nonsensical catchphrase. Lochte trailed Pereira at the midway point, but he turned it on during the breaststroke leg and pulled away on the freestyle nish, gliding across the water to win by about a body length, 1.31 ahead of Hagino. It was the 13th world championship gold of Lochtes career, his 21st medal overall, and his third straight title in the 200 IM a race he lost to Michael Phelps at the last Olympics. My goggles were fogged up so I couldnt see the rest of the eld, Lochte said. I had no idea if I was winning or in last place. I was just focused on making my turns well, and toward the end I was just praying that I would touch the wall rst. In the relay, Ledecky put the Americans ahead at the start, and Franklin zipped away with a dominant anchor leg to win in 7:45.14. Katie led it off like a champ, said Shannon Vreeland, the second of the U.S. swimmers. With Missy as an anchor, you just have a lot of condence in the rest of the relay.

BARCELONA, SPAIN Ryan Lochte feels like himself again. Looks more like himself, too, with that gold medal around his neck. Missy Franklin and Katie Ledecky have felt this way all along. Theyre piling up so much gold they might need bigger suitcases to get home. Lochte bounced back from a disappointing start to the world swimming championships, showing he still knows how to touch the wall rst with his victory in the 200-meter individual medley Thursday night. Thats worthy of a Jeah! The rst two days I wasnt myself, Lochte said. I was too worried about the outcome of each race, about nishing rst, about my times, and thats not me. I am a swimmer who is really relaxed and goes out there to have fun. No one is having more fun than a pair of American teenagers. Franklin, the 18-year-old who recently graduated from high school, is 4 for 4 at the championships after anchoring the U.S. to victory in the 4x200 freestyle relay, matching her gold-medal haul at the London Olympics. Ledecky, only 16 and getting ready for her junior year of high school, is 3 for 3 after swimming the leadoff leg of the relay. It was her rst chance to be part of a U.S. relay team at a major international meet. Being part of a team is the most important part about swimming for me, Franklin said. You want to go

out there and race harder than youve ever raced before. Chances are, there will be more trips to the podium for the stalwarts of the American team. Lochte has four events remaining and Franklin three. Ledecky will be a big favorite in the 800 free, the event that produced her breakout gold medal at the London Olympics last

summer. I am not going to think about the outcomes or about winning, said Lochte, who got through a demanding double by posting the secondfastest time in the seminals of the 200 backstroke behind another American, Olympic gold medalist Tyler Clary. I just need to have fun. The U.S. settled for silver and

bronze in the mens 100 free swimmings glamour event. Australias James Magnussen rallied on the return lap to edge Jimmy Feigen and reigning Olympic champion Nathan Adrian. Lochte barely celebrated after his race, letting out a deep breath as he squinted to see his winning time 1 minute, 54.98 seconds. Japans THE TIMES LEADER

Gay,lesbian sports hall of fame honors athletes

Associated Press

Inbee Park gestures on the first green during the first round of the Womens British Open on the Old Course at St Andrews, Scotland, on Thursday. The 25-year-old from South Korea already has won three majors this year. She is trying to become the first golfer, male or female, to win four in one season.

Seeking 4th major, Park opens with 69 Russia will enforce anti-gay law during Olympics
The Associated Press ST. ANDREWS, SCOTLAND Wearing a black rain suit and a soft smile, Inbee Park looked calm as ever standing before the imposing Royal & Ancient clubhouse just moments before she teed off Thursday in the Womens British Open. Only after her unsteady round of 3-under 69 did Park reveal perhaps the biggest surprise at St. Andrews. She was nervous. But then once the round started, and especially playing so good in the rst few holes, that really gave me a lot of condence, Park said. I didnt feel much pressure when I was playing during the round. Im just glad that its already started and I got the rst round under my belt. Park wound up three shots behind Morgan Pressel and Camilla Lennarth of Sweden, a solid start to what should be a fascinating week at the home of golf. Her pursuit of history looked more like a highspeed chase when the 25-year-old South Korean made six birdies in 10 holes. Three poor tee shots, two three-putt bogeys and one double bogey from a pot bunker on the back nine made her realize theres a reason no golfer has ever won four majors in a single year. Felt like a roller coaster today, Park said. She was only too happy it nally stopped with a 6-foot birdie on the 18th hole, ending a slide during which she dropped four shots in a vehole span. Pressel, one spot out of making the Solheim Cup team this week, caught a break when the rain and wind never materialized in the afternoon. She made seven birdies in a round of 66 that gave her a share of the lead with Lennarth, who birdied the 18th. Stacy Lewis, the former No. 1 player in womens golf, shot 31 on the tougher back nine for a 67 to be part of a large group that included former U.S. Womens Open champion Na Yeon Choi and Nicole Castrale. Another shot behind were Paula Creamer, Catriona Matthew and Lizette Salas. Those who played early had reason to worry. Lewis was on the 10th tee when she looked over at Park knocking in an 18-foot birdie putt, her fth of the round. Castrale had not yet teed off when her husband saw a leaderboard with Parks name in a familiar position. Its amazing, the fact we all possibly can play with history, Castrale said. Its amazing what shes done to this point, the composure she has. I dont know what she shot today, but Im going to guess shell be in the mix come Sunday. If there were nerves on the rst tee for Park, she didnt show it. She opened with a wedge into about 7 feet for birdie, and then she really poured it on with an astounding display of her putting stroke. She rolled in a 30-foot birdie putt on No. 3 with perfect pace.

CHICAGO Dave Pallone, who was part of Chicago history when he umpired the rst night game at Wrigley Field, is returning to Chicago to take part in another chapter of American sports history: His inclusion in the inaugural class of what organizers say is the rst-of-its-kind National Gay & Lesbian Sports Hall of Fame. Tonight, Pallone will be honored in the rst class of inductees that includes tennis greats Martina Navratilova and Billie Jean King, Olympic diving champion Greg Louganis, and Jason Collins, who in April became the rst active male professional

athlete in a major team sport to publicly reveal he was gay. It is a tremendous honor and I hope it gives young people and adults alike who happen to be LGBT and want to be in professional sports another example of why they should continue to strive for their dreams, Pallone said. Rick Garcia, a prominent Illinois gay rights activist agreed, saying he hopes the hall of fame encourages gay and lesbian youth to have a career in sports and excel in that career and still be honest about who they are. The events will include a dinner tonight to honor the inductees at a ceremony at the Center on Halsted and an event on Saturday at Wrigley Field called Out

at Wrigley, which organizers says is the largest Gay Day at a major league sporting event. Executive Director Bill Gubrud said the decision to establish what he says is the countrys rst hall of fame honoring gay athletes and their supporters is not tied to Collins announcement earlier this year. He said factors such as changing attitudes about homosexuals, particularly among young people, made him and others think this was the ideal time to create an institution that honors the contributions that gays have made in sports as well as the hardships many endured because of their sexual orientation. Among those being inducted is the late Glenn Burke. An outelder with

the Oakland Athletics and the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 1970s, Burke is widely believed to have delivered the rst high-ve. Though he did not publicly come out until two years after he left baseball, Burke maintained until he died of complications due to AIDS in 1995 that he was run out of the game by prejudiced and homophobic managers and front ofces that knew he was gay. This will help preserve history, said Gubrud. You are not going to know where to go if you dont know where youve been and many in the gay community dont know Glenn Burke. Gubrud also said that a number of the inductees who are not gay are being recognized for hav-

ing helped create safe environment for LGBTs to compete in sports at every level. Among those is Ben Cohen, an English rugby player. He founded a foundation to stop bullying against LGBTs, Gubrud said. Gubrud said Chicago was chosen to be hall of fames home for a number of reasons, starting with the citys place as a major gay tourist destination. Also, he said, Chicago is one of the most gay-friendly cities in the United States. He also said the Cubs hold a special place in the gay community, explaining that it was the Cubs more than a decade ago that became the rst professional sports team to place an ad in a gay newspaper.

AKRON, OHIO Webb Simpson shot a 6-under 64 in his rst competitive round at Firestone Country Club to take a one-stroke lead in the Bridgestone Invitational. The 2012 U.S. Open champion had six birdies in an eight-hole span to get the upper hand on seven-time Bridgestone winner Tiger Woods. Woods, with top-10 nishes in 11 of his 13 starts on the course, shot a 66 in the World Golf Championships event.

MOSCOW Russia will enforce a new law cracking down on gay rights activism when it hosts international athletes and fans during the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, the countrys sports minister said Thursday, appearing to contradict assurances to the contrary from the International Olympic Committee. Russias contentious law was signed by President Vladimir Putin in late June, imposing nes on individuals accused of spreading propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations to minors, and even proposing penalties for those who express these views online or in the news media. Gay pride rallies also are banned. An athlete of nontraditional sexual orientation isnt banned from coming to Sochi, Vitaly Mutko said in an interview with R-Sport, the sports newswire of state news agency RIA Novosti. But if he goes out into the streets and starts to propagandize, then of course he will be held accountable. Mutko emphasized that the law wasnt designed to punish anyone for being gay or lesbian. But like the

Russian lawmakers who authored the bill, Mutko said athletes would be punished only for propaganda, a word that remains ambiguous under the new law. The corresponding law doesnt forbid nontraditional orientation, but other things: propaganda, involvement of minors and young people. The law species punishment for foreign citizens, to include nes of up to 100,000 rubles ($3,000), time in

prison for up to 15 days, deportation and denial of reentry into Russia. Four Dutch citizens working on a documentary lm about gay rights in the northern Russian town of Murmansk were the rst foreigners to be detained under the new law, although their case did not make it to court, according to RIA Novosti. While activists and organizations supportive of gay rights have called for a ban

on Russian-made products like Stolichnaya vodka in bars across North America, they have yet to nd a unied response to the Sochi Games. Instead of a boycott of the Olympics, athletes have made individual gestures and called for protests, such as a pride parade, to be held during the games. The IOC said last week that it had received assurancesfromthehighestlevel of government in Russia

that the legislation will not affect those attending or taking part in the games. t pledged to ensure there would be no discrimination against athletes, ofcials, spectators and the media in Sochi. IOC spokesman Mark Adams said Thursday the committee continues to accept past assurances from the Russian government that the law will not affect athletes, ofcials or spectators during the games.

Cornell goes out right at the top

For the Times Leader

Golden welcoming chance to focus only on football

AP Sports Writer

KINGSTON student athletes wish to go out on top in their nal year of competing at the high school level. While Henry Cornell did not exactly go out on top, he came as close as he possibly could. Cornell, 18, of Wyoming Seminary recently completed a 12-0 regular season in boys tennis and reached the District 2A nals in both singles and doubles competition. He was ranked No. 1 going into both tournaments. I didnt feel too much pressure, said Cornell on his reaction after learning he was ranked rst. I was happy about it I guess. For his efforts, Cornell was named The Times

Wyoming Seminarys Henry Cornell has been named The Times Leaders Boys Tennis Player of the Many Year.

Aimee Dilger File Photo | The Times Leader

Leaders Boys Tennis Player of the Year. First year coach Allison Joanlanne saw good things in Cornell when she rst took over the program. While she did not know too much about her senior player, she knew he had what it took to do great things and was not surprised at all when he advanced as far as he did in the District 2 tournaments. Hes a good player, said Joanlanne. Hes been improving since (his) freshman year from what I heard and was number three last year (in the District 2 tournament) and looked really good and earned his spot and had a good record. I


Chris Kim, Wyoming Seminary Season Achievements: Ranked No. 6 in District 2 2A singles, ranked No. 3 in District 2A doubles. Kim reached the quarerfinals of the District 2 singles tournament ranked as the No. 6 seed. He also competed in the District s doubles semifinals ranked as the No. 3 seed. Cory Dulsky, Tunkhannock Season Achievements: Ranked No. 7 in District 2 2A doubles. Dulsky went into the singles tournament unranked, but upset the No. 8 seed to advance to the quarterfinals. Dulsky also reached the quarterfinals of the doubles tournament as the No. 7 seed. Pat Loftus, Holy Redeemer Season Achievements: Ranked No. 8 in District 2 2A singles. Loftus advanced to the second round in both the doubles and singles tournament. Ross Gladey, Crestwood Season Achievements: No. 3 seed in Distrist 2 3A singles, No. 3 seed in District 2 3A doubles. Gladey reached the quarterfinals in both District 2 singles and doubles as the No. 3 seed. Trent Woodruff, Pittston Area Season Achievements: Ranked No. 3 in District 2 3A singles, ranked No. 8 in District 2 3A doubles. Woodruff reached the District 2 3A singles quarterfinals as the No. 4 seed and reached the second round of the doubles tournament as the No. 8 seed. Alex Machalick, Crestwood Season Achievements: Ranked No. 3 in District 2 3A doubles Machalick reached the quarterfinals of the District 3 3A singles tournament and reached in the District 2 3A quarterfinals as the No. 3 seed. Francois Ross, Dallas Season Achievements: No. 7 in District 2 2A singles. Ross reached the District quarterfinals ranked as the No. 7 seed, but lost in the first round of the doubles tournament as an unranked player.

was happy for him cause hes a senior and got to the nals. Some might think its in singles matches when Cornells nerves are highest, but he said that wasnt the case. I was most nervous for doubles play because you play with someone else so its less predictable, said Cornell. We had a strategy, but it was hard to say how the match was gonna go cause we were also facing two kids who were unpredictable. Cornell lost in both nals matches, but when looking back on his high school career, his senior season will be one to remember. He said, however, while his individual success in 2013 was nice, he will look back more on the overall team success in seasons prior. I was more accomplished with previous seasons, Cornell said. My junior year we got to the

state nals and we had an incredible run to get there. Freshman, sophomore and junior years we won districts, so they were all great seasons. Cornell now leaves Wyoming Seminary behind to move on as a student at the University of Virginia where he will major in engineering. He also hopes to be a part of the universitys mens tennis team which is ranked NO. 1 in the nation after recently winning a national championship. Cornell left behind a good impression on, not only his team mates, but his rst year head coach as well. Hes a very good student, said Joanlanne. He graduated one of the top (students) in his class. And hes a hard worker and practiced hard at every practice. He was co-captain along with junior Chris Kim and was a pleasure to have on the team. He was a good team player.

CORAL GABLES, FLA. Miami coach Al Golden stood behind a lectern for a half-hour Thursday to talk about his team, discussing things like how the Hurricanes worked in the weight room and their depth at certain positions. In other words, normal football stuff. And that itself seems rather abnormal, given what the Hurricanes have been through over the last two years. When Miami opens practice on Saturday, it will mark the third straight training camp where the Hurricanes will be dealing with the uncertainty that comes with what might be looming following an NCAA investigation into the actions of a rogue former booster. By the time this camp ends, Golden thinks his team will nally have answers in the form of whatever additional penalties, if any, that the Hurricanes will be getting slapped with. Its been an anomaly for sure, since weve been here, Golden said of a summer that didnt come with any additional problems or bombshell accusations. My biggest focus right now is to keep the team focused. We know at some point theres an answer coming. Were going to do everything we

can in our power to bunker down and stay focused and not let this disrupt our third consecutive training camp. Miami got its Notice of Allegations from the NCAA in February and met with the Committee on Infractions in June. Although theres no deadline for that committee to act, the expectation after that meeting was that the Hurricanes would receive word within eight weeks which, in this case, would be Aug. 9, or around the time Goldens team will be wrapping its rst full week of camp. School ofcials have spent months preparing for the outcome, whatever it is. The NCAA began investigating the Hurricanes in March 2011 after former

booster and convicted Ponzi scheme architect Nevin Shapiro said he gave dozens of athletes, coaches and recruits impermissible benets over an eight-year span, often long before any of Miamis current players were even thinking about college. The most damning charge the NCAA eventually brought against Miami was that the school lacked institutional control when it came to monitoring Shapiro, who is now serving a 20-year federal prison sentence for defrauding investors out of $930 million. So far, the Hurricanes have missed two bowl games and last seasons Atlantic Coast Conference title game because of the investigation.

PHILADELPHIA Alex Arias and pinch-hitter Roger Kieschnick had RBI singles off Jonathan Papelbon in the top of the ninth inning, then Sergio Romo escaped a bases-loaded jam in the bottom half as the San Francisco Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 Thursday night. Matt Cain (7-6) gave up one run and six hits in eight innings. The struggling ace lowered his ERA to 4.57. Cole Hamels allowed seven hits and struck out ve in eight scoreless innings. The 2008 World Series MVP hasnt pitched like a three-time All-Star this season, but he left with a 1-0 lead that he gave himself with an RBI single. Then Papelbon (2-1) blew it a familiar scene for the 2012 All-Star closer. He started the season 13 for 13 in save opportunities, but is 7 for 13 since.

The Cardinals avoided their rst sweep in a set of at least ve games since 1916, when the New York Giants took all six games. Kelly (2-3) pitched six scoreless innings and had two hits. Tony Cruz added three hits, including a two-run double during an eight-run seventh inning.

Darvish strikes out 14 as Rangers beat Arizona

The Associated Press

ARLINGTON, Texas Yu Darvish struck out 14, matching the most in his 50 major league starts, and the Texas Rangers hit three solo homers and beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-1 in a makeup game on Thursday night. Darvish (10-5) had no walks and scattered ve hits while throwing 78 strikes in 111 pitches over seven scoreless innings. It was his major league-leading eighth game this season with at least 10 strikeouts. A.J. Pierzynski, Mitch Moreland and David Murphy all homered off Zeke Spruill (0-1), who went four innings in his rst major league start.
Indians 6, White Sox 1

The Royals last won nine straight when they opened the 2003 season at 9-0. The last time Kansas City won more in a row was a 10-game string in 1994, STATS said. Butler had two hits and drove in two runs. Justin Maxwell had a hit and an RBI a day after being acquired in a trade with Houston. James Shields (6-7) gave up two runs on ve hits and ve walks in six innings for the Royals, who swept the three-game series and are showing potential to be a factor late in the season.
Orioles 6, Astros 3

CLEVELAND Ryan Raburn homered twice and drove in four runs and the Cleveland Indians won their eighth consecutive game, a victory over the Chicago White Sox. The Indians have won 13 of 17 and completed a four-game sweep of the reeling White Sox, who have dropped seven in a row and are 26 games under .500 for the rst time since 1980. Raburn hit a two-run homer in the third, had an RBI single in the fth and belted a leadoff home run in the seventh. Justin Masterson outpitched Chris Sale (6-11) in a matchup of All-Star hurlers. Masterson (13-7) gave up one run in 6 2-3 innings and has won all four of his starts against Chicago this season.
Royals 7, Twins 2

BALTIMORE One day after being acquired from the Houston Astros, Bud Norris dominated his former teammates over six innings in his Orioles debut, and Baltimore got a home run from Chris Davis in a victory. The only runs Norris (7-9) allowed were on solo homers by Brett Wallace and Mark Krauss. The right-hander gave up four hits, walked two, and his season-high eight strikeouts included three by cleanup hitter Chris Carter. Davis hit his major league-leading 39th home run off Travis Blackley in the seventh, a solo shot that gave him 100 RBIs for the season. He is the 39th player in club history to reach the 100 RBI mark and the rst since Nick Markakis in 2009.
Red Sox 8, Mariners 7

MINNEAPOLIS The Kansas City Royals won their ninth straight game, stretching their longest winning streak in more than a decade by beating Minnesota behind Billy Butlers hitting and Lorenzo Cains highlight reel catch in center eld.

BOSTON Daniel Navas long single to center eld capped a six-run rally in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Boston Red Sox came back to beat the Mariners and sweep Seattle in the three-game series. One night after winning in 15 innings for their major league-leading 10th walkoff victory, the Red Sox did it again to open a one-game lead in the AL East over the idle Tampa Bay Rays.

Oil giants quarter worst since 2010

Pickup trucks led the charge in July, but strong sales of small cars show that demand for new vehicles is broad and not slowing down. Car sales grew in the rst six months of this year, but not at the blistering pace of trucks and SUVs. Through June, full-size pickups were up 22.5 percent over the year before, while cars were up 5 percent. But in July, sales of smaller cars took off. General Motors said its car sales jumped 24 percent, including a 42 percent increase in subcompact and small-car sales. Honda Civic sales were up 30 percent to 32,416, their best July in 13 years. Part of the frenzy was seasonal. Small cars traditionally sell better in the summer and then taper off as winter approaches. But its also an indication of the high level of demand from all kinds of customers, which is likely to remain for the rest of this year. GM, Ford, Chrysler, Toyota, Honda and Nissan all reported double-digit sales gains last month. Of major automakers, only Volkswagen had a down month.

Procter & Gambles quarterly results beat Street

MAE ANDERSON NEW YORK As Procter & Gamble posted quarterly results on Thursday that beat Wall Street expectations, newly reinstalled CEO A.G. Laey promised a leaner, more focused company. In his rst remarks since retaking the helm of the worlds largest consumer products company in May after a stint in the same job from 2000 to 2009, Laey said P&G is targeting cost cutting and growing its largest and most protable brands. The company, which makes products that include Tide detergent and Crest toothpaste, has a facility in Mehoopany, Wyoming County. Laeys comments came after P&G reported that while scal fourth-quarter net income dropped 48 percent due to a writedown related to its Braun Appliance business and other one-time costs, its adjusted prot and revenue beat Wall Street expectations. We will continue to make choiceful investments in core brands, our biggest innovation opportunities, and in our core developed and most promising developing markets, he said. Analysts and investors had been interested to hear how Laey, who replaced former CEO Bob McDonald, plans to rejuvenate the business. Oppenheimer analyst Joe Altobello said sales trends were better than expected but kept his Market Perform rating on the stock. While encouraged by these results, we believe the necessary improvements at P&G will take time, and the stock seems to already reect further momentum, he wrote in a client note. P&G has been working on a turnaround effort aimed at focusing on its top 40 top businesses, 20 biggest new

Exxon Mobil reported its lowest quarterly prot in more than three years, as the oil and gas giant again struggled to boost production and results from its rening operations weakened. Net income fell 57 percent in the second quarter. Exxon said Thursday that it earned $6.86 billion, down from $15.9 billion in the year-ago quarter, which included a gain from the sale of a Japanese lubricants division and other assets. Excluding those year-ago gains, Exxons net income fell 19 percent. On a per-share basis Exxon earned $1.55. Analysts polled by FactSet expected Exxon to earn $1.90 per share. Revenue fell 16 percent to $106.47 billion from $127.36 billion a year earlier.

Jobless claims take a big dive

Initial jobless claims unexpectedly plunged last week to their lowest level since the early days of the Great Recession as the labor market continued to show signs of strengthening. The number of people ling for rsttime unemployment benets fell by 19,000 in the week ending Saturday to 326,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. The last time the number was lower was in January 2008.

NEW YORK The stock market got jolted out of the summer doldrums Thursday by better news on the economy, sending indexes back to all-time highs. The Standard & Poors 500, the Dow Jones industrial average and the Russell 2000 index all set records. The S&P broke through 1,700 points for the rst time. The Nasdaq hit its highest level since September 2000. The gains were driven by a steady ow of encouraging, if incremental, reports on the global economy. Overnight, a positive read on Chinas manufacturing helped shore up Asian markets. Then, an hour before U.S. trading started, the government reported that unemployment claims fell last week. At mid-morning a trade group said U.S. factories revved up production last month. And while corporate earnings news brought both winners and losers, investors were able to nd enough that they liked in companies including CBS, MetLife and Yelp. Its just a lot of things adding up, said Russell Croft, portfolio manager of the Croft Value Fund in Baltimore. Its hard to put your nger on why exactly, but basically its a bunch of pretty good

data points coming together to make a very good day. Overall, analysts said, the news was good but not overwhelmingly so. Enough to suggest that the economy is

improving, but not enough to prompt the Federal Reserve to withdraw its economic stimulus programs. Its becoming a familiar template this year. Stock indexes have been setting

record highs even while the underlying economy is more often described as decent, but hardly going gangbusters. Take company earnings, the most important thing for stock investors. Earnings at S&P 500 companies are up 4.3 percent this quarter, and revenue is down 0.4 percent, according to S&P Capital IQ. In previous eras, that hardly would have been considered encouraging. In the second quarter of 2007, before the nancial crisis imploded, earnings rose 8.7 percent and revenue was up 5.8 percent. But compared with the second quarters of 2008 and 2009, when earnings plunged more than 20 percent each time, this years results look positively cheery. Other economic indicators have been following a similar fashion of not too good, not too bad. While layoffs are steadily declining, companies arent hiring as quickly as they did before the crisis. The economy is growing, but not fast enough to drive signicant job growth. The Commerce Department reported this week that the U.S. grew at a tepid annual rate of 1.7 percent in the second quarter. Theyre not great numbers, but theyre positive and theyre continuing to grow, said Tim Courtney, chief investment ofcer of Exencial Wealth Advisors in Oklahoma City. Thats about all the market needs to hear.

He noted newsstand sales of most consumer magazines were falling steadily as online alternatives proliferated. Sales of the adult sophisticate category of
