Andre Dasawn Fuller charged with criminal attempt to commit homicide


Arrest made in W-B shooting of teen

Charges against Glodzik sent to county court

Tow truck operator accused of taking money from car he towed

KINGSTON State Trooper Daniel Mimnaugh said Monday the investigation started in December 2012 when his father-in-law was involved in a car accident and his vehicle was towed by LAG Towing, owned by Leo Glodzik III. Mimnaugh noticed some red ags on the towing receipt regarding what he called excessive fees, and he brought the information to agents with the FBI, where he works on a drug task force.

That information led to an investigation that eventually charged Glodzik, 42, of Duryea, with two counts of theft alleging Glodzik took $2,100 in bait money. Glodzik had been the Wilkes-Barres tower with an exclusive contract to tow vehicles involved in accidents or police matters. District Judge Paul Roberts on Monday sent the charges to county court after an hour-long preliminary hearing with First Assistant District Attorney Samuel Sanguedolce See GLODZIK | 10A

After selling out amphitheaters and stadiums all over the country including two nights at Bostons fabled Fenway Park last month - Jason Aldean brought the summers hottest country show to Scranton on Sunday. The 2013 Night Train Tour, featuring Aldean along with Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett, rolled into the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain for a large, rowdy crowd on Sunday evening. This dont feel like a Sunday night, man, Owen said following the third song of his hour-long set. Owen, the 2009 Academy of Country Music Top New Male Vocalist, took the stage at 8 p.m. with Anywhere With You, a song from his upcoming fourth album. Owen kept the hits coming as he ran through crowd-pleasers such as The One That Got Away, Alone With You, Yee Haw and Pass a Beer in quick succession. He left the large crowd wanting more as he wrapped up his 60 minutes with Barefoot Blue Jean Night, Days of Gold (his latest single and the title track of the upcoming album) and Eight Second Ride. As loud as the response

was to Owen and his hits, the noise was easily eclipsed in the rst few moments of Aldeans performance as the Georgiabred singer took over and turned Scranton into a Crazy Town. After super-charged performances of his latest No. 1 hit, Take a Little Ride, and Tattoos On This Town, Aldean mentioned his latest album Night Train and the fact he wanted to play some of that discs new tunes in addition to the big hits going back to his rst album. In other words, drink up and have a good time, were gonna be here a while, he said. Following new tune When She Says Baby, Aldean treated his fans to a nice rendition of the ballad The Truth and his early hit Johnny Cash, as a giant, yellow-labeled Sun record of the late singers Folsom Prison Blues lled the video screen. Aldean hit his stride in the middle of his 90-minute set with Amarillo Sky, his latest single Night Train, and 1994. When a hologram of Kelly Clarkson appeared to sing the No. 1 duet Dont You Wanna Stay with the cowboy-hatted singer, many in the audience had to look twice to realize she wasnt actually on stage.

Jason Aldean plays to a packed house Sunday Night at the Toyota Pavillion on Montage Mountain.

(Clarkson will be at the Toyota Pavilion in the esh next Sunday to close out the summer season with Maroon 5.) Aldean then worked his way down the home stretch with a great version of Alabamas Tennessee River, (which he told the crowd he recently recorded with the legendary band for a tribute/comeback album) and his own big hits

Big Green Tractor and Shes Country. After briey leaving the stage, Aldean stormed back for a three-song encore including an awesome rendition of John Mellencamps Pink Houses. His own hits My Kinda Party and Hicktown kept the audience on its feet and screaming as the concert wrapped up just past 11 p.m.

Sundays show also included a brief opening set by singersongwriter Thomas Rhett, who rst garnered attention as a co-writer of Aldeans 2010 song I Aint Ready to Quit. Deejay Silver, spinning everything from The Devil Went Down to Georgia to Sweet Child O Mine to Blurred Lines, kept the audience warmed up between acts.

Brewer Yuengling talks Corbett, taxes, unions

Associated Press


HARRISBURG The head of D.G. Yuengling and Son Inc. on Monday called for the passage of a right to work law in Pennsylvania that could dilute membership in labor unions and said he wanted retailers interests protected in any expansion of beer sales. Dick Yuengling Jr. said at a Pennsylvania Press Club appearance that the state would attract more businesses if it adopted a right-to-work policy that would make it more difcult for unions to organize. Right-to-work bills prohibit requirements that employees join a union or

pay union dues or fees as a condition of employment. Such bills have languished in the Republican-controlled Legislature, while critics contend the real intent to bleed unions of money and bargaining power would destroy the middle class. Yuengling also had other implicit criticisms of the business climate in Pennsylvania, including wanting to see a reduction in the capital stock and franchise tax. How many times do you have to be taxed on the same dollar? said Yuengling, whose ancestor founded the Pottsville-based brewer in 1829. He began working there in 1958. Gov. Tom Corbett has not pressed for right-to-work laws, and has said that he

does not believe there is a strong will in the Legislature to pass it. Nonetheless, Yuengling called Corbett a great man whos trying to do the right thing. Yuengling said Corbetts ofce contacted him right away after he was quoted saying his company might build its next brewery in another state. The rm recently expanded sales into a 14th state, Ohio, and it now has about 280 employees. Asked about a plan by Corbett and Republican allies to push for privatization of the state liquor system, Yuengling said his concern was the fate of the small businesses that retail beer. They made our company in the state

of Pennsylvania, and I dont want to see them hurt, Yuengling said. Yuengling was included earlier this year on a Forbes magazine list of billionaires, but he insisted Monday that he is not worth a billion dollars. Were not for sale, he said. Nobodys going to offer me a billion dollars for it, and if they (did), I wouldnt take it. Asked about Yuenglings rst foray into NASCAR, making its Light Lager brand the sponsor of Ty Dillons No. 3 Chevrolet next year, Yuengling described it as an experiment. Its not cheap. Its very expensive, and the talk about it has been phenomenal, he said. Were going to see whether this is a good thing or not.

WCTC addresses technology concerns

Times Leader Correspondent


Council reintroduces Ash Street Park bicycle ban

Times Leader Correspondent


PRINGLE James Gaydos, network administrator/technology director, shared concerns about technology systems at Monday nights meeting of the West Side Career and Technology Center Joint Operating Committee Meeting. Gaydos said solutions to such issues as wireless equipment, system infrastructure and connectivity issues would require an investment in technology. In response to questions about cost, Gaydos said he was beginning to gather data. Karen Kyle, chairperson of nance, said the project was not an option, but a must do. President Jack Gill advised Gaydos to price and prioritize in upgrading the system. In another matter, teachers presented a Power Point demonstration on the Professional Learning Communities model, employing collaborative teams of teachers, focusing on improved and comprehensive learning. With this approach, we see improved learning, said Jeanne Kravitz, giving the example of CPR taught by several different disciplines. Principal Richard Rava presented statistics indicated that the center has signicantly improved test scores in the area of math and reading, exceeding state improvement statistics. Nancy Tkatch, administrative director, gave a special thanks to Wyoming Borough for a donations of a 2004 Crown Victoria Police vehicle for use in the centers automotive programs. Gill indicated the committee was in the process of clarifying the use of emergency teaching certicates in response to a residents concern. He said the matter was a personnel issue and would be addressed in executive session. The next meeting of the Joint Operating Committee will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 23.

WILKES-BARRE TWP. The ordinance for the bicycle ban in Ash Street Park that was tabled at the July 1 meeting, was reintroduced at Monday nights special council meeting. If passed, the ordinance would prohibit bikes and other two-wheeled vehicles from entering into Ash Park. The ordinance states that the abundance

of these types of vehicles interfere with the safety of children, senior citizens and other members of the community. Those failing to abide with the ordinance would face a fine of not less than $25 and not more than $100. Jean Langley of Ash Street said the park is a walking park. She is worried someone will get seriously hurt from the bikes. She added that senior citizens walk for their health,

and appealed to council saying please dont take that away from us. Allan Mago, of Willow Street, voiced his opinion that bikes should be allowed in the park. He asked council if they want kids to ride in the street and further questioned Why hasnt anything been done about the piece of plywood that remains in a nearby park on Willow Street? Mago suggested bikes

could be allowed only after a certain time when children are off from school. Township Attorney Bruce Phillips said he is concerned for the safety of the senior citizens and that the park has always been there strictly for walking and that we dont want kids riding bikes when seniors are walking the track. The ordinance will be brought up for a vote at the September work session.

Man killed after concert at Montage

Glen Thomas identied the man as 33-year-old Michael Sanders. Sanders died at a hospital in Lackawanna County. An autopsy is scheduled.

Teachers,Board still battling at W.A.

EXETER Wyoming Area students might get an early break this fall if the school board does not meet a contract agreement with Wyoming Area Education Association the teachers union by Sept. 3. And union lead negotiator John Holland said that while the two sides are whiskers away from a settlement, the school board walked out of negotiations Monday. Attorney Jack Dean, the lead negotiator for the district, disagreed with that assessment. Dean said the board made an offer that eliminated a one-year pay freeze and increased total money for the union by $100,000, equaling a 12.5 percent raise over three years. They rejected it. School starts Wednesday, but if the strike is called students in all grades will get in a full three days before heading home. Holland said a state mediator involved in negotiations was trying to set another negotiating session for Wednesday and that were willing, but the other side has to be willing. Union leaders ran an advertisement in Sundays Times Leader displayed as a letter to taxpayers chastising the school board for allegedly overlooking the fact that teachers have been working under an expired contract for three years. In its letter, the union accuses school board members of prompting the work stoppage by bringing stale ideas to meetings and twisting the unions stance on certain contract portions. The district contends the unions demands would deplete the districts emergency fund to nearly nothing. Teachers have not received raises in the last three years for lack of a contract and, after scheduled pay increases due largely to longevity and completion of postdegree credits, only about $160,000 of the $3-million fund would remain, said former school board president and board member Frank Casarella prior to Mondays contract talks. On Monday evening Dean said the new offer would have almost completely wiped out the emergency fund. This negotiating committe has gone as far as it can go. The contract must consider three sometimes-conflicting entities: the teachers, the administration and the public, Casarella said. Meeting the union requests could raise taxes for property owners in the district, partly because the unions salary scale could give some teachers as much as a 20-percent raise over the course of the contract. He said teachers deserve their raises, but he cant agree to requests that the district cannot afford. Wyoming Area Superintendent Ray Bernardi could not be reached for comment Monday. At Wyoming Area Secondary Center, administrators are bracing for the


Woman hurt at Plains school

Around 7 p.m. Sunday Dorothy Sarnick, 73, was parking her car near the Leo Solomon school track when she was shot in the arm by what medical staff say is a .22-caliber bullet or an air-powered pellet, according to township police. Sarnick and others nearby say they heard a single loud pop sound from a wooded area at the same time Sarnick felt a burning sensation in her arm. Her windows were rolled down as she parked her car, and police say the projectile entered the open window. Sarnick planned to exercise on the schools track, police said. A thorough search of the area was unfruitful, said police said, who ask anyone with information about the incident to call township police at 570-829-3432 or call 911.


impending walkout. School board members and union representatives will be negotiating right up until the Sept. 3 deadline, said Wyoming Area Secondary Center Principal Vito Quaglia. The union intends to exhaust their available strike days if needed, he said. In the rst strike, teachers must return to work with time to complete 180 school days by June 15. If they strike again, they must return to work in time to complete the required days by June 30. There are about 160 teachers employed by the school district, which hasnt struck in over 30 years. In case of a strike, parents will be updated with the districts auto-dial phone notification system and with regular updates on the district website, www.wyomingarea. org.

RICE TWP. The townships rst emergency response team is setting up shop inside the township borders. Wright Township Volunteer Fire Department, named Rice Townships primary re department when supervisors voted to decertify their own department in June, parked one of their reserve re trucks in Rices maintenance garage Thursday, allowing the department to reach emergencies in the township sooner. The pumper/rescue truck, a 1989 Pierce Dash model capable of pumping water with storage space for gear, has been recently serviced and geared. The truck was certied

before its installation at Rice Township to be in line with the manufacturers standards, said Wright Township Assistant Fire Chief Chris Krout. Rice Township Supervisors Chairman Miller Stella said the truck sitting in their garage hints at what is to come for many volunteer departments. This is a vision for the future, Stella said. Youre going to see a lot more municipalities doing what Rice Township has done. Its because of the lack of volunteers in communities. Youre going to see more and more re companies coming together and doing whats best for the residents.

Wright Township volunteers had the truck on their own turf Monday night gearing it up to be fully-equipped to be what Krout called an initial attack piece for emergencies in Rice Township. Because all Rice Township homes are within ve roadway miles from Wrights department, the Rice Township departments decertication did not threaten homeowners insurance premiums, but the supervisors and Wright volunteers saw a need to put it there. Its something that (Rice Township) felt was important, Krout said. We do want to maintain a presence there.

WILKES-BARRE City police said they seized heroin packets, pill tablets, marijuana and contraband inside a South Welles Street house where a 10-year-old child resided with her mother. Six people were arrested when police served a search warrant at 135 S. Welles St. on Friday. Police said Nicole Genella, 41, was the legal tenant of the resident.

Love, 54, address listed as homeless, were charged with drugrelated offenses. They were jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $5,000 bail each. A search warrant receipt says police seized 66 heroin packets, money, marijuana and assorted pill tablets from the house and pockets

of clothes several of the suspects were wearing. According to the criminal complaints: Police raided the house after witnessing an alleged drug sale on South Welles Street Friday afternoon.

Kerry says evidence is undeniable that government used chemical weapons

The Associated Press

Syria vows to defend itself

against any international attack, warning that such an intervention would ignite turmoil across the region. It also would bring the U.S. closer to a conict that has killed more than 100,000 people since Assad cracked down on Arab Springinspired protesters in March 2011. Syrias civil war has been increasingly dened by sectarian killings between the Sunni-led rebellion and Assads regime, dominated by Alawites, an offshoot of Shiite Islam. It would essentially pit the U.S. and regional allies Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar in a proxy war against Iran, which is providing weapons to the Syrian governments counterinsurgency, along with Hezbollah, the militant Lebanese group that also has aided Assads forces militarily. Deputy Foreign Minister Faysal Mikdad told The Associated Press in an interview in Damascus that such an attack would trigger chaos in the entire world. If individual countries want to pursue aggressive and adventurous policies, the natural answer would be that Syria, which has been ghting against terrorism for almost three years, will also defend itself against any international attack, he added. Assad told a Russian newspaper that any military campaign against his country was destined to fail. Its also unclear what U.S. action would mean for relations with Russia, which warned Monday against the use of force not sanctioned by the U.N. Security Council, calling it a crude violation of international law. Support for some sort of international military response was likely to grow if it is conrmed that Assads regime was responsible for the Aug. 21 attack in the Damascus suburbs that activists say killed hundreds of people. The group Doctors Without Borders put the death toll at 355. U.S. Secretary of State

DAMASCUS, Syria U.N. experts collected samples and testimony from Syrian doctors and victims of an alleged chemical weapons attack Monday following a treacherous journey through government and rebel-held territory, where their convoy was hit by snipers. As Washington said there was undeniable evidence that Syria used chemical weapons and Western powers stepped up calls for swift military action, President Bashar Assads government vowed to defend itself

John Kerry said chemical weapons were used in Syria and he accused Assads regime of destroying evidence. He said the U.S. has additional information about the attack and will make it public in the days ahead. The indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity. By any standard, it is inexcusable and despite the excuses and equivocations that some have manufactured it is undeniable, said Kerry, the highest-ranking U.S. ofcial to conrm the attack. This international norm cannot be violated without consequences, he said.

Two killed by Taliban suicide bombers

Five Taliban suicide bombers killed two Afghan soldiers and wounded several others on Monday when they attacked an army base in eastern Afghanistan. In a separate incident, NATO said a soldier serving with the international military coalition was killed by a bomb in southern Afghanistan. The NATO announcement provided no other details on the incident or the nationality of the soldier killed. Most of the troops serving in the countrys south are from the United States. The death brings the number of foreign troops killed this month to nine, including seven from the United States and one from Poland. A total of 112 have been killed this year, including 85 Americans.

Real estate mogul calls New Yorks attorney general a political hack
Associated Press

Mayoral candidate is a rising star

A motley gaggle of hipsters, mothers with children and two babushkas with hair dyed bright red gather to listen to something they havent heard in over a decade: a stump speech for Moscow mayor. Alexei Navalny, an anticorruption blogger who has become the best known face of Russias protest movement, is trying to take his following ofine and into the street, waging a traditional campaign of hand-shaking and leaet drives to win voters outside his base of the young and web-savvy. Navalny has little hope of defeating incumbent Sergei Sobyanin but polls show his star is rising. Polling data on the race is spotty and inconsistent, but the trends are clear: The number of Muscovites ready to vote for Navalny on Sept. 8 has breached 10 percent and may even be moving toward 20 percent.

Second suspect arrested in death of WWII veteran

Investment made in NJ transit system

The U.S. Energy Department is investing $1 million to look into improving New Jersey Transits train system after Superstorm Sandy. The grant announced at the Frank Lautenberg train station in Secaucus on Monday is the rst step toward building a new microgrid to power trains during major power outages. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz joined Gov. Chris Christie and transit ofcials in making the announcement. Christie says the NJ Transitgrid would be the rst microgrid built for a non-military use. It would supply highly reliable power when the regular power sources fail. The October storm knocked out power to more than 5 million users, severely ooded the Hoboken rail station and caused hundreds of millions in damage to rail cars that had been moved to low-lying storage yards.

SPOKANE, Wash. Spokane Police on Monday arrested a second teen suspect in last weeks beating death of an 88-year-old World War II veteran who authorities say likely fought back against his attackers. The second suspect was arrested without incident early Monday morning at a friends house in Spokane, police said. The rst suspect turned himself in last week. Both suspects are 16-years-old and face charges of murder and robbery in the death of Delbert Belton last Wednesday. The two individuals we believe are responsible for the robbery and murder of Mr. Belton are in custody, Police Chief Frank Straub said at a news conference on Monday morning. Belton, who was wounded in the

battle for Okinawa, was beaten to death in his vehicle as he waited for a friend in the parking lot of an Eagles Lodge in north Spokane. Straub said it appeared that Belton fought back against his attackers, and that may have contributed to the severity of the beating he received. Nevertheless, I encourage people to ght back when attacked, Straub said. A 16-year-old boy surrendered to authorities last Thursday night, and is in the Spokane County Jail. His identity has not been released because he is a juvenile. The second suspect, also a 16-yearold boy, was arrested in a basement apartment in Spokane just after 3 a.m. Monday. His identity and photograph were released as police searched for him, but The Associated Press, which typically does not identify juveniles accused of crimes, is no longer using his name because he is in custody. Three other juveniles with him were arrested for investigation of rendering criminal assistance, a felony, Straub said. Straub said police received a tip early Monday about the location of

the second suspect. The motive for this attack was robbery, Straub said. There is no gang activity associated with this incident. Beltons wallet was taken, Straub said. Both suspects have criminal records for assault, Straub said. Investigators believe the boys targeted Belton randomly as he sat in his car and waited for a friend. Straub said the case involved twin tragedies. It bothers me that a distinguished World War II veteran lost his life, Straub said. But the lives of the young suspects are also likely ruined, he said. Ofcers found Belton with serious head injuries on Wednesday night, and he died in the hospital Thursday. Belton was born and raised in Spokane. He survived being shot in the leg in 1945 at Okinawa, one of the ercest battles of the war, and went on to spend 33 years working for Kaiser Aluminum before retiring in 1982. Belton was called Shorty by his friends because he was little more than 5 feet tall, his niece Pam Hansen said. She believes he was targeted because of his age and size.

ALBANY, N.Y. Donald Trump on Monday defended his Trump University as a booming success for student entrepreneurs and blasted New Yorks attorney general, who called it a scam. Attorney General Eric Schneiderman shot back that Trump is making wild accusations, just like others who commit fraud and get caught. We have a terric school. Its done a fantastic job, Trump told ABCs Good Morning America. We have a 98 percent approval rating among students. Trump held several TV interviews to further contest the lawsuit Trump led Saturday by Schneiderman, which alleges the real estate mogul helped run a phony university that promised to make students rich but instead steered them into expensive and mostly useless seminars. This is a political hack looking to get publicity, Trump said. His attorney, Michael Cohen, said Saturday that Schneiderman was upset the reality TV star didnt give him more campaign contributions, which he claims Schneiderman sought even while investigating Trump University. Cohen called it extortion. Trump, in interviews with Good Morning America and NBCs Today, denied Schneidermans claims that he never met with students and didnt pick instructors. I was totally involved to a very high degree, he said. I told people what to do, and if they had listened to me, it would have made a lot of money. Schneiderman wouldnt specically say if he solicited any donations from Trump during the two-year investigation.

Death toll rises in train derailment

Palestinians: Talks halted after clash

MOHAMMED DARAGHMEH QALANDIA REFUGEE CAMP, West Bank Palestinian ofcials said they called off a planned round of peace talks Monday after Israeli soldiers killed three protesters during clashes following an arrest raid in the West Bank. But in comments that suggested the meeting had gone ahead as planned, a U.S. ofcial in Washington said no meetings have been canceled. The ofcial, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter with the media, refused to elaborate. Israeli ofcials refused to comment. The violence, the deadliest incident in the area in years, dealt a new blow to U.S.-led peace efforts, which resumed late last month after a nearly ve-year break. Palestinian ofcials have accused the Israelis of stonewalling and using the process as a cover to build new Jewish settlements. The deaths of Palestinians further soured the atmosphere. It was not known when talks will resume, but Palestinian ofcials said the break was expected to be brief. They spoke anonymously as they were not authorized to talk to media. Mondays clashes broke out when Israeli forces entered the Qalandia refugee camp, just outside of Jerusalem, on an overnight arrest raid. Shai Hakimi, a spokesman for the paramilitary border police, said hundreds of Palestinians poured into the streets and hurled rebombs, concrete blocks and rocks at ofcers. The Israeli military said soldiers rushed to the scene to provide backup and opened re after they felt their lives were in imminent danger.

Floras suit sent to county court

Roger DuPuis

A federal judge on Monday granted former Luzerne County Chief Public Defender Al Floras request to have his constitutional lawsuit against the county remanded back to county court. We are very pleased that this matter has been returned to the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas, where the plaintiffs filed the action originally, said Kimberly D. Borland, lead attorney for Flora and his co-plaintiffs. Flora filed the suit in April 2012, claiming the Public Defenders Office was so underfunded and understaffed it could not provide adequate defense to indigent clients. The situation had become so dire, Flora argued, he was com-

pelled to limit the type of cases the office would accept. That left more than 300 defendants to face charges without an attorney as the county failed to provide an alternate source of legal representation, according to the lawsuit. In his order, U.S. District Judge Malachy E. Mannion also dismissed a county motion to dismiss Floras amended complaint and to disqualify plaintiffs counsel. The dismissal was without prejudice, leaving the defense to re-file those motions. Blue Bell attorney Deborah H. Simon, representing the county and county manager Robert C. Lawton, said the defense was aware of the ruling. The timing of re-filings, if any, would be subject to appropriate court rules said Simon, who declined further comment.

In his order, U.S. District Judge Malachy E. Mannion also dismissed a county motion to dismiss Floras amended complaint and to disqualify plaintiffs counsel. The dismissal was without prejudice, leaving the defense to re-file those motions.
A trial had been set to take place on Sept. 24, but Borland said a new trial date will be sought from county court officials. It was too early to say how soon the case could now be heard, he said, but a September trial would not be practical due to the addition of witnesses. The 2012 case is separate from another suit filed by Flora in April of this year, claiming his termination by the county on April 17 was in retaliation for reforms Flora was imposing in the Public Defenders Office, and Floras revelation that 3,000 juvenile cases associated with the kids-for-cash scandal had not been expunged, despite a 2009 state Supreme Court order. Flora became part-time chief public defender in May 2010 after 30 years in the office. The past three months have seen several developments in the 2012 case. On May 7, the plaintiffs were granted permission to include that Flora no longer works in the office,

and to add three new plaintiffs. Also at that time, the trial was continued from June 24 until September. On May 31, the county filed a notice of removal, arguing that since Flora was claiming Sixth Amendment violations, the case properly belonged in federal court. The amendment, ratified in 1791, sets out the rights of defendants, including the right to a speedy trial and the right to legal counsel. In his ruling, Mannion noted that the case undisputedly could have been removed to federal court, except that the county failed to file a notice of removal within 30 days of the original suit, as required under law. We do look forward to the constitutional issues being brought to trial here in Luzerne County, Borland said.

Times-Shamrock selling newspapers



The newspapers Times-Shamrock has listed for sale and the year the company purchased them: Towanda Daily Review: 1977 The Petersburg (Va.)

The sale process will be handled by Cribb, Greene and Associates, a Bozeman, Mont.-based merger-andacquisition rm. Managing Director John Cribb said the Lynetts are willing to sell the papers off individually or as a group, though the preference would be to sell them as a group. Cribb dened the process as being at the initial stage and a six-month schedule is typical for this sort of sale. Typically the announcement that papers are being marketed for sale doesnt come out this early, but the Lynetts decided to make it known to staff members earlier in the process. Cribb said his company will be visiting newspaper sites involved in the potential sale and then will begin the process of marketing the properties and seeking potential buyers. A list will be created of potential buyers and presented to TimesShamrock and negotiations will move along from there. While Lynett did not

Neither was a message left with Scott Lynett, another coCEO of the company.

return a call seeking comment, he was quoted in the Citizens Voice story as saying the goal is to refocus and double-down on our efforts at home in Northeast Pa. All of these papers have been strong, protable investments for us for many years, Lynett Jr. was quoted as saying during a Monday morning meeting with employees that was detailed in the Citizens Voice story. We have enjoyed operating in these diverse markets and the decision to sell was difcult. However it made sense for us to offer these more distant papers for sale to someone who could take them to the next level of growth.

Judge keeps mans sex offender status

Birthday... But YOu Get

The Gifts!

Its Our

WILKES-BARRE A Luzerne County senior judge has denied a request by a man serving a state prison sentence on charges he sexually assaulted a young boy to throw out his classication as a sexually violent predator. Robert John Barbaro, 44, is serving an 18- to 48-month state prison sentence, followed by three years of probation, stemming from charges in August 2009 where police said he sexually assaulted a young boy for an eight-month period. Barbaro pleaded guilty to a charge of indecent assault in May 2010 and was sentenced the following November. That sentence was reduced, at Barbaros request, in January 2011 to 18- to 48- months. At Barbaros sentencing, he was found to be a sexually violent predator after an assessment by the state Sexual Offenders Assessment Board (SOAB). In Barbaros request to Augello, led in May, Barbaro wrote that the sexually violent predator classication is double jeopardy and that the label carries a lifetime iniction of an indelible badge of infamy. Barbaro requests that all evidence obtained by the SOAB be thrown out, and says that the classication comes with a lifetime of probation because Megans Law requires offenders to register their address and appear at a state police barracks every 90 days to be photographed and provide personal information. Pennsylvania Megans Law will inict a gross and unwarranted violation upon an offenders state constitutional right to privacy, Barbaro

wrote. The designation that (Barbaro) is a sexually violent predator will bring irreparable harm to him and his family. In Augellos ruling Monday, the judge wrote that Barbaros ling is patently frivolous and that the post-conviction request is outside the scope of what the proceeding is designed to do. Augello wrote that Barbaro doesnotallegeanyconstitutional violations and that Barbaros request was led more than a year after a Superior Court ruling. Therefore, Augello wrote, the petition was not led in a timely manner.

Cefalo amends McDonalds complaint


WILKES-BARRE Attorneys for ve plaintiffs in the class-action suit led against a Clarks Summit McDonalds franchisee led an amendment Monday in Luzerne County Court claiming a fee-laced debit card was the only available option for the employees to receive their pay. According to attorney Michael Cefalo, of West Pittston, the amendment was led on behalf of Natalie Gunshannon,

the original plaintiff, and Alisha Siciliano, Cassie Staretz, Samantha Lynn Earley and Justin Eck. Defendants are Albert and Carol Mueller, trading as McDonalds. Cefalo said the classaction suit was led on behalf of all current and former McDonalds hourly employees who were paid through a debit card issued through JP Morgan Chase. The suit claims no other form of payroll payment was offered. According to the suit: Gunshannon, of Dallas,

declined use of the debit card and quit her $7.44 per hour job because she felt the fees charged to get her wages would bring her below the federally mandated minimum wage of $7.25. Siciliano, a swing manager, claims she was denied an alternative method of payment other than the debit card and she was never give instructions on how to withdraw her wages without incurring fees. As a manager, Siciliano said she was not given instructions on how to explain to employees the ways to withdraw wages without incurring fees. Staretz, Earley and Eck claim they were not given payroll options, nor were they ever given instructions on how to use the debit card without incurring fees. These employees were told there was a one-time way of getting their money out without incurring

fees, but they were never told how, Cefalo said. We led the amendment to demonstrate to these people that there is no way to withdraw your money without incurring fees. Cefalo said when the employees inquired how to get their money out without incurring fees, they were told to gure it out. He said the employees were told the payroll system would not allow alternative methods of payment. Not long after the lawsuit was led, the Muellers announced that employees would be given other ways to receive their wages other than the debit cards. They could choose paper checks or direct deposit. And never were they provided information on how to use the debit cards without incurring fees, Cefalo said. The Muellers have 700 employees in their 16 stores.

In Tomave, other canvases were left behind, Dubert said, indicating the thieves knew exactly what they wanted. These churches are being robbed because ter-

LA PAZ, Bolivia The thieves tunneled under the thick walls of the colonial-era Roman Catholic church in the tiny southern Bolivian town of San Miguel de Tomave, emerged through the oor and made off with ve 18th-century oil paintings of inestimable value. It was the third time the highlands church had been plundered of sacred art since 2007. Most of the nely-etched silver that once graced its altar was already gone. Who would have thought they would take the canvases, too? the Rev. Francisco Dubert, the parish priest, asked of the 2-meter-by-1.75-meter oils depicting the Virgin Mary. Increasingly bold thefts plague colonial churches in remote Andean towns in Bolivia and Peru, where authorities say cultural treasures are disappearing at an alarming rate. At least nine churches have been hit so far this year in the two culturally rich but economically poor countries. We think the thefts are being done on behalf of collectors, said the Rev. Salvador Piniero, archbishop of Perus high-

rible people want to own beautiful things. Donna Yates, a University of Glasgow archaeologist blogged afterward. Yates, who is studying the Andes thefts for a global, European Unionfunded project, said the hemorrhaging of priceless ecclesiastical art in the region has continued at a steady pace, but its getting more brazen. Who is behind it? I cant say, Yates added. The market for these goods is in Europe and the United States, she says, with Santa Fe, New Mexico, one destination as a magnet for collectors of Latin American art. Cultural ofcials in the Andes have long struggled to protect Incan and pre-Columbian cultural treasures. Now, colonial sacred art has become a similar worry. By law, it is all national patrimony, its export illegal.

Corbett forces out 2nd education chief in three months

HARRISBURG Gov. Tom Corbett dismissed his second education secretary in three months on Monday when he asked for the resignation of nominee William Harner over an undisclosed

personnel matter that nation gave no reaa spokeswoman said son for the move. did not involve his But a Corbett state service. spokeswoman, Harners dismissal Lynn Lawson, came after Corbett, a said later that it Republican, removed involved a personRon Tomalis in May nel matter that did without explanation. Harner not arise during An administration Harners time in statement on Harners resig- the Corbett administration.

Lawson could not explain why the administration was unaware of the undisclosed personnel matter before Harner was nominated, and she could not say how or when the administration became aware of it. Since it is a personnel matter, I am not going to get into the specics beyond

what weve announced today, Lawson said. Harner was in Luzerne County Thursday for a Town Hall meeting with area superintedents and district ofcials at the Luzerne Intermediate Unit in Kingston. Harner, 56, told an Associated Press reporter earlier Monday as he was

walking into the Capitol that he knew nothing about his nomination potentially being withdrawn and that he still expected to be conrmed by the Senate next month. About 90 minutes later, the administration announced his departure. Harner replaced Ron Tomalis on June 3 after pre-

viously serving ve years as the superintendent of the Cumberland Valley School District, a large district in suburban Harrisburg. His contract with the district was ending June 30, and the board there had not approved a new contract with him before Corbett nominated him in May.

Kate Gosselin sues ex over book, alleges hacking

Associated Press


PHILADELPHIA Former reality TV star Kate Gosselin led a lawsuit Monday accusing her exhusband of stealing her hard drive and hacking into her phone and computer to get material for a tell-all book. Jon Gosselin accessed email, bank accounts and other private information for a book called Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, according to the federal lawsuit. The 2012 book was written by Jon Gosselins friend and business partner, tabloid writer Robert Hoffman, but pulled from the market after two days because the information had been illegally obtained, the lawsuit said. Jon violated a federal antihacking statute in order to

publish salacious, scandalous and defamatory information about Kate, said her lawyer A. Jordan Rushie. Its damaged her reputation. The couple starred in the TLC show Jon & Kate plus 8, detailing life with their twins and sextuplets, before they separated in 2009 and later divorced. She, a former nurse who now runs a coupon website, lives in Sinking Spring. He worked in information technology and now lives in nearby Wyomissing. Both are outside Reading. The lawsuit accuses Jon Gosselin of identity theft, wiretapping and invasion of privacy and seeks unspecied damages. A lawyer who once represented Jon Gosselin did not immediately return a message. Hoffman is also named as a defendant.

Field of dreams, city of nightmares

Vile Despicable Inhuman Unconscionable Incomprehensible Unforgivable. Go ahead, pick your word, they all apply, these and many more Reprehensible Abhorrent Inexcusable Horric Detestable Demonic The shooting of two girls, ages 2 and 5, Saturday outside Sherman Hills Apartments dees description, taxes any lexicon, and most of all demands a response. Not just a rigorous response by police and the district attorneys ofce, all of whom seemed to have moved quickly in the hours following the outrageous crime. Bringing those who did this unspeakable act to justice would be a critical part of the answer, but just a part. Not just the stern and rightfully angry response of Mayor Tom Leighton. Those who committed this heinous and despicable act will be brought to justice, he vowed. No parent should ever face a day such as this. Not just the new city one-strike ordinance aimed at hitting back hard when rental properties become thieves dens or drug houses while landlords look the other way, or dont look at all. This atrocity requires a communal response. It demands the management of the property take action to end the mayhem. It demands the residents of the apartments speak up take back their turf, and that Leighton and police give them the time, methods and support needed to do that. And this requires us all to do some serious soul searching and gure out what we can and must do to end the chronic headlines that increasingly make Wilkes-Barre look like a shooting gallery. Higher taxes? A change in priorities in the services we want? A stronger show of support for neighborhood watches? More cameras? More cops? More tip lines? More aggressive policing? More state money? More federal support? Perhaps we need more connectivity, more concern for our neighbors and neighborhoods, more community. Because when toddlers lie bleeding in our elds from bullet holes, it is a stain on us all to have ever reached such a point. The words of Dante Coleman, who said she was visiting friends near the Sherman Hills Complex Sunday, strike with deep resonance. At the end of the day, theyre just babies, Coleman said. They should be able to watch TV and go out onto their patio without worrying about getting shot.

Police scour the field near where two children were shot Saturday.

Believers who attended created legacy of march

The gathering on the National Mall 50 summers ago was about more than Martin Luther Kings I Have a Dream speech. When a quarter-million Americans came together on Aug. 28, they werent concerned about impressing the folks back home who were watching on TV. They were in Washington, D.C., to make history. Already, 1963 had been a brutal year of race-based tension and conict. In May, King led a boycott to desegregate department stores in Birmingham, Ala., while police responded with German shepherds and re hoses. In June, President John F. Kennedy sent the National Guard to stop Gov. George Wallace from blocking the entry of two black students to the University of Alabama. Then the president took to the airwaves to call for civil rights legislation and that same night Medgar Evers, an NAACP leader, was gunned down by a sniper in Jackson, Miss. By the time the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom was being planned for August, no one knew what to expect. The eventual size of the crowd was unprecedented and people of all colors, genders and faiths marched with dignity. Instead of riots, there were processions and hymns. Instead of anger, there was resolve. The Americans who maintained their sense of purpose under the hot sun that day werent victims of irrational optimism. They were witnesses to the inevitability of change, believers that the protections afforded by the Constitution were everyones birthright. The now-fabled march was not a great moment in American history because Mahalia Jackson sang in a way that moved many to tears. Nor was it remarkable because Martin Luther King made one of the most memorable American speeches since President Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg. The march was one of the nations greatest moments because so many Americans, with no guarantee that their voices would be heard, gathered in one place to change the nations moral and political trajectory. While Kings I Have a Dream speech is the rst thing that comes to mind about that moment, it was only one highlight in a day that changed American society. The men and women who gathered before the Lincoln Memorial 50 years ago altered the course of history. Their hard-won legacy must not be taken for granted. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


Try to see the big picture

In response to Ms. Krzywickis Old Testament speaks of one God, I must proclaim that Jesus has and will fulll hundreds of OT prophecies. Hes the red thread running through the whole Bible. The Saviors miraculous birth is foretold in Isaiah 7:14, Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: the virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. (which means God with us.) Jews who deny Jesus was the Son of God/the promised Messiah try to hold this lack of an earthly father against him, stating the Messiah must be a descendant of King David. He was, but because genealogy was only described in the line of fathers and sons, they say that technically, Jesus doesnt qualify (see the Jews for Judaism website). A greater problem is trying to get these folks to see the big picture, that the Messiah rst had to come as the Suffering Servant (Isaiah 53 is most famous, Psalm 22:16-18 describes a Roman crucixion, written hundred of years before they even practiced such a ritual). Any day now, Christ will

Just as Isa. 53:6 says We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all, the OT recounts many times Israel turned its back on God by chasing after idols and dozens of other 10-Commandmentbreaking sins. Finally, rather than having to get clean through the blood of the sacricial lambs slaughtered by the priests, Jesus was offered as the Passover lamb for all time. Another type of Christ seen clearly in the OT is Abraham being spared the sacrice of his son Isaac by the appearance of a ram caught in a thicket near the altar (Genesis 22). And to Ms. Krzywickis question about who to listen to if you come to a fork in the road and God tells you to go one way and Jesus the other, the answer is, it couldnt happen, because Jesus and the Father are one, just different representations of the Trinity. Like Jesus, I pray for the unity of all mankind, Gods creation: that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you ... I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one. (John 17:21-22) May all be able to recognize Jesus as John the Baptist did in John 1:29, Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.

From page 1A own has been overstated. Sometimes what weve seen is that folks will call for immediate action, jumping into stuff, that does not turn out well, gets us mired in very difcult situations, he said. We have to think through strategically whats going to be in our longterm national interests. The strongest challenge to Obamas philosophy on intervention has come from the deepening tumult in the Middle East and North Africa. The president saw great promise in the region when he rst took ofce and pledged a new beginning with the Arab world when he traveled to Cairo in 2009. But the democracy protests that spread across the region quickly scrambled Obamas efforts. While the U.S. has consistently backed the rights of people seeking democracy, the violence that followed has often left the Obama administration unsure of its next move or taking tentative steps that do little to change the situation on the ground. In Egypt, where the countrys rst democratically elected president was ousted last month, the U.S. has refused to call Mohammed Morsis removal a coup. The ruling military, which the U.S. has nancially backed for decades, has largely ignored Obamas calls to end assaults on Morsi supporters. And U.S. ofcials are internally at odds over whether to cut off aid to the military. In Syria, where more than 100,000 people have been killed during the two-and-a-half year civil war, Obamas pledges that President Bashar Assad will be held accountable have failed to push the Syrian leader from ofce. And despite warning that Assads use of chemical weapons would cross a red line in Syria, there was scant American retaliation when he did use the toxic gases. On Sunday senior administration ofcial said there is very little doubt that a chemical weapon was used by the Syrian regime against civilians in an incident that killed at least a hundred people last week. The ofcial spoke on condition of anonymity because the ofcial was not authorized to speak publicly. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Monday that the Obama administration will get the facts before acting and that any U.S. move would be done in concert with the international community. But there is pressure in Congress for Obama to act swiftly, possibly along the lines of a U.S. air strike against Syria. Few foreign policy experts predicted the Arab uprisings, and its unlikely the U.S. could have or should have done anything to prevent the protests. But analysts say Obama misjudged the movements next stages, including Assads ability to cling to power and the strength of Islamist political parties in Egypt. The president has not had a long-term strategic vision, said Vali Nasr, who advised the Obama administration on foreign policy in the rst term and now serves as dean of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. Theyre moving issue to issue and reacting as situations come up. Obama advisers say the president is frustrated by what is seen as a lack of good options for dealing with Arab unrest. But the president himself has pushed back at the notion that the U.S. has lost credibility on the world stage because he hasnt acted more forcefully. We remain the one indispensable nation, Obama said in a CNN interview aired Friday. Theres a reason why, when you listen to whats happened around Egypt and Syria, that everybody asks what the U.S. is doing. Its because the United States continues to be the one country that people expect can do more than just simply protect their borders. But the perception of a president lacking in international inuence extends beyond the Arab world, particularly to Russia. Since reassuming the presidency last year, Vladimir Putin has blocked U.S. efforts to seek action against Syria at the United Nations and has balked at Obamas efforts to seek new agreements on arms control. Putins hard-line approach stands in stark contrast to the relationship Obama cultivated in his rst term with Putins predecessor, Dmitri Medvedev. The two held friendly meetings in Moscow and Washington (Obama even took Medvedev out to lunch at a local burger joint) and achieved policy breakthroughs. They inked a new nuclear reduction agreement, and Moscow agreed to open up supply lines to help the U.S. pull troops and equipment out of Afghanistan. Michael OHanlon, a national security analyst at The Brookings Institution, said the president miscalculated in assuming that a few signs of improved ties would be enough to overcome years of distrust with the Russians. The issue here is one of raised expectations, unrealistically high expectations that Obama himself deliberately stoked, OHanlon said. He hoped that a more pragmatic, disciplined, less interventionist foreign policy would appease the Russians. The White Houses ties with Russia were further damaged this summer when Moscow granted temporary asylum to Edward Snowden, the former government contractor accused of leaking documents detailing secret U.S. surveillance programs. In retaliation, Obama canceled plans to meet with Putin in Moscow next month, though he will still attend the meeting of leading rich and developing nations in St. Petersburg, Russia. But the international impact from the National Security Agency revelations has spread beyond Russia. In European capitals, where Obamas 2008 election was greeted with cheers, some leaders have publicly criticized the surveillance programs. Among them was German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who questioned the legitimacy of the programs while standing alongside Obama during his visit to Berlin earlier this year. Obama has long enjoyed high approval ratings from the European public, though those numbers have slipped in his second term. So has European approval for his administrations international policies. A Pew Research Center poll conducted this spring, before the NSA programs were revealed, showed that support for Obamas international policies was down in most of the countries surveyed, including a 14 point drop in Britain and a 12 point drop in France.

From page 1A the street names of Shai and Flea, who were inside Pages apartment before the shooting on Saturday. Cash said he spotted a black man, about 6 feet, 2 inches tall, walk out the front door when he entered the apartment through the sliding door. As Page did not respond when he asked what was going on, Cash went outside to talk to his cousin. One of the suspects yelled, Yo, come here, bro. Cash told him to wait since he did not know them. Cash said he was about to re-enter the apartment when shots rang out at about 1:45 p.m. Cash grabbed his younger daughter and tossed her to the back of the room. As he went to grab the 5-year-old daughter, she was shot, the afdavits say. Page told police, according to the afdavits, she was in her apartment with her two children and Christina Rivera and Riveras 2-year-old daughter. Page said Shai was in the apartment and Shais friend Flea stopped in to get a cell phone charger. Page left the apartment with another girlfriend, identied only as Kia, and walked to Walgreens Pharmacy on Coal Street. When she returned, Cash got out of a taxi and approached Page. Pages friend Kia told Shai he needed to leave. Cash walked through the sliding-glass door as Shai walked out the front door. An argument erupted about another man being in the apartment. Page called 911 about the domestic disturbance. About 20 minutes after calling 911, Page said she heard gunshots when she was in the bathroom. She looked out and saw Cash diving in the room and her 5-year-old girl on a couch with a gunshot wound, according to the afdavits. Riveras 2-year-old daughter was shot during the gunre, police said. Police believe one of the suspects attempted to leave town in a 1999 Dodge minivan with a tire on the roof. Police seized the vehicle in the area of 510 S. Empire St. after the shooting where several people were arrested on unrelated charges. Arrest papers say police investigated a ght about 4:07 p.m. Saturday at 91 N. Empire Court, where Jamesetta Carter and Troy Moyer stated they were attacked by ve people who confronted Camilla Hoy about a missing money card. Moyer claimed that Taleek T. Sistrunk, 21, of 308 N. Empire Court, told Hoy, You owe her money, too, according to the criminal complaint. Moyer defended Hoy and was zapped by a Taser held by Sistrunk, the complaint says. Carter stepped in to help Moyer and was pulled away by Jevaun Darryl Brown, 24, of 19 S. Empire Court. Carter attempted to run from the residence and was zapped by the Taser, according to the complaint. Sistrunk, Brown, and Trevor Whitaker, 26, of Brooklyn, N.Y., left the apartment, driving away in a mini van with a tire on its roof. They were arrested in the area of 510 S. Empire St. Sistrunk and Whitaker were charged with simple assault, and Brown was charged with simple assault, forgery and false identication to law enforcement. They were jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $50,000 bail. Although the shooting and the ght about a missing money card were unrelated, the Dodge minivan may be connected. Police received a search warrant for the Dodge that was impounded.

From page 1A calling Mimnaugh as his only witness. Glodzik now faces a formal arraignment in Luzerne County Court on Nov. 1. Mimnaugh said agents with the FBI already had a folder containing complaints about Glodzik. Mimnaugh said he approached Glodzik about the towing fees, to which Glodzik said there was a mix-up with a similar vehicle that was also in his lot. Glodzik pulled a large roll of money from his pocket and handed Mimnaugh four $100 bills. On Jan. 14, Mimnaugh testified as part of the investigation he spoke with Glodzik about exclusively towing vehicles seized by Mimnaughs drug task force a rouse to further investigate Glodzik. Mimnaugh called Glodzik on Jan. 25 regarding a drug car where Glodzik allegedly asked about what Mimnaugh does with certain evidence left in vehicles. When the vehicle was towed back to Glodziks Carey Avenue garage, Glodzik crumpled up a piece of paper a $100 bill and told Mimnaugh to take it. Fifteen days later Mimnaugh called Glodzik with another drug car to be towed, but Glodzik sent a worker to pick up the car. Mimnaugh testified he called Glodzik on the way to LAG Towing and told Glodzik he didnt check the ashtray really well. Agents had placed $2,100 in bait money in the ashtray, Mimnaugh testified, money that Glodzik removed from the vehicle and placed in his pocket. A few minutes later, Mimnaugh testified, Glodzik removed the money from his pocket, placed it in a paper towel and told Mimnaugh it was 11 oclock meaning $1,100 was in the paper towel. Thats when agents were called in and Glodzik was arrested, Mimnaugh said. Mimnaugh said he was present when agents later interviewed Glodzik, who allegedly admitted to taking the $2,100. Glodziks attorney, Joseph Sklarosky Sr., questioned Mimnaugh about whether he was an expert on towing fees. Sklarosky also said the investigation into Glodzik only began because of a personal reason involving Mimnaugh. Sklarosky questioned Mimnaugh about the FBI never investigating Glodzik before, even though they had a file folder of complaints. Sklarosky repeatedly asked Mimnaugh if he and other agents questioned Glodzik about kickbacks to WilkesBarre Mayor Tom Leighton and Chief of Police Gerry Dessoye and other police officers. The prosecutor objected to each of Sklaroskys six or seven questions on that issue, and the district judge agreed each time that the trooper did not have to respond. You wanted to put him against the eight ball to try to find out about him giving kickbacks, Sklarosky said. And you found out he wasnt doing any of those things. Sklarosky said Mimnaugh told Glodzik in a conversation that he knew the mayor and chief of police were dirty to try to elicit information and that Mimnaugh accused Glodzik of being on drugs. Sklarosky also said the charges against his client should be thrown out because prosecutors did not establish whose money Glodzik allegedly took. The Mayors Office released a statement Monday night in response to Sklaroskys questions regarding Leighton and Dessoye. Attorney Sklaroskys comments are typical defense tactics to divert attention or responsibility away from the charges against his client. Mayor Leighton and Chief Dessoye have not done anything wrong, the statement read.

As Uggiano approached the area of South Grant and Wayne streets where he was supposed to meet the girl, he observed another man identied as Fuller approach him with a gun, the complaint says. Uggiano told police Fuller only grinned at him and began to shoot him multiple times, according to the complaint. Uggiano knew Fuller only as Uggiano Dre. Police said they found several .45 caliber shell casings in the area. Court records say Fuller was sentenced by Luzerne County Judge David W. Lupas in March 2010 to nine to 18 months in jail on a rearm charge. In that case, Kingston police said Fuller threatened a woman with a .9mm handgun that had an altered serial number on Aug. 10, 2009, court records say. Domestic violence charges were withdrawn against Fuller in the Kingston case. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on Sept. 5 before District Judge Martin Kane in WilkesBarre.

Medico survives triple-bogey to repeat


EXETER Some high school golfers that card a triplebogey would get ustered by the score and would let that effect the rest of the round. Mariano Medico just brushed it off. Another year of experience helped the Holy Redeemer Fred Adams | For The Times Leader senior forget about the bad hole Brad Evert of Hazleton Area chips out of the sand trap on hole No. 2 during the as he rebounded to shoot evenpar 71 at Fox Hill Country Club Tryba Tournament on Monday at Fox Hill Country Club.

on Monday to claim his second straight championship of the Wyoming Valley Conference Tryba Preseason Tournament. With 11 holes remaining, Medico hit a triple-bogey 6 on the par-3 hole No. 7 to go 2-over for the round. He turned things around to get even and win the tournament netting two more birdies to win by two strokes over his teammate Andrew Crossin. The difference from last year is that I can play within my game now, Medico said. It

can get out of hand but I turn it around and shot even so it was pretty impressive for me today. Said Royals coach Art Brunn Jr. about his pupil, who nished fth in the PIAA Class 2A Championships last season: It was nice that he can have a bad hole in the middle and be able to get it all back. Im just proud he didnt give up and he hung in there like that. Crossin, who took second with a 73, is a new addition to the Royals squad after transferring

from Wyoming Valley West. The senior nished two strokes shy of qualifying for the District 2 Class 3A Tournament last season with the Spartans. He showed his value Monday, as the Royals cruised to their fourth straight team title, amassing a score of 298, their highest score as champion during the run. Crossin beat teammate Chase Makowski, who was the Royals No. 2 last season and scored 76 on Monday. See MEDICO | 4B

Over the last few years, Sheptock has been content playing quarterback carousel with Tyler Bernsten and Alex George. Heck, there were even times

when one of the players was doing superb and then is replaced in the middle of the game. That wont be the case anymore. The reigns have ofcially been handed over to Bernsten as George has been shifted to tight end. Both seniors looking for the most of their playing time, Sheptock said this has been benecial to both parties. We feel that with his (Bernsten) added reps and not splitting the reps during practice that we should see a lot of improvement from his standpoint, the coach said. George was approached about the move to tight end during the offseason and started working there during spring practice. Although there are three tight ends who have seen a large See COLONELS | 4B

Penn State released its Week 1 depth chart Monday. Take a guess which starting job is still listed as up in the air. The Nittany Lions are keeping their quarterback situation under wraps headed into Saturdays opener against Syracuse. Bill OBrien might reveal whether its Christian Hackenberg or Tyler Ferguson starting under center during his press conference Tuesday, but the Penn State coach might just let it linger all the way until kickoff. During last season, OBrien made a brief, early portion of a mid-week practice open to media. But for this rst week at least, practice will be closed entirely, further maintaining some of the mystery. For now, the teams ofcial depth chart lists Tyler Ferguson OR Christian Hackenberg at quarterback. At this point, Hackenberg is the slight favorite to get the nod, but both are expected to see the eld against the Orange. OBrien said last week that it wasnt a matter of indecisiveness on his part and hinted that his players already know how the situation will play out. Other than quarterback, Penn State listed two other starting jobs as up in the air, both because of injury concerns. The Lions list right tackle as Garry Gilliam OR Adam Gress and free safety as Malcolm Willis OR Ryan Keiser. Gress missed multiple practices during camp with a sore knee while Willis donned a red nocontact jersey for a time. Neither situation is believed to be serious and OBrien still referred to Gress as his starter late last week. See PENN STATE | 3B

Williams was usually the seeded player, but after two years of illness and injury, the seven-time major champion was the one pulling the upset Monday when she defeated Wimbledon seminalist Kirsten Flipkens.

BALTIMORE Only Chris Davis stands between Miguel Cabrera and baseball history. As he heads toward the conclusion of another sensational season with the Detroit Tigers, Cabrera has a decent shot at becoming the rst major league player to win the Triple Crown in successive seasons. Entering play Monday, Cabrera comfortably led the AL with a .356 batting average, 28 points higher than runner-up Mike Trout. His 126 RBIs were best in the league, too, eight better than Davis. In home runs, though, Davis held a 46-42 advantage. And if the Baltimore Orioles slugger

can make that lead stand up, then Cabreras bid for a repeat performance will be denied. As far as me being the obstruction for him doing it again, I hope he does do it again, Davis said. That would be awesome. Hes a great hitter. He deserves everything that he gets. My goal is not to go out there and keep Miguel Cabrera from winning the Triple Crown. Its to do everything I can to put us in position to win, whether that means I hit 10 more home runs or two more home runs. Ive had a productive year so far, but if we dont make the playoffs, it doesnt really mean a lot. A productive year? Thats putting it mildly. Davis ranks 10th See DAVIS | 7B

Penn State
From page 1B Altogether, the depth chart has no radical changes since the last one was released in June. Aside from Hackenberg, Andrew Nelson (left tackle) and Brandon Bell (linebacker) are the only scholarship true freshmen who arrived on campus in June to be listed. Three other names that werent on the June list are walk-ons Adam Cole, Von Walker and Chris Gulla. Cole is a redshirt freshman listed at outside linebacker whom OBrien said could contribute on special teams. Walker is a true freshman who nds himself in the mix for the return game, perhaps early on. Gulla will back up Sam Ficken at kicker. Bill Belton is listed as the top kick returner, but the initial depth chart has his partner as either fellow tailback Akeel Lynch or Walker. Eugene Lewis is also listed as a potential kick returner. Jesse Della Valle will continue to return punts, with Belton and Walker as the top options behind him.

With the season about to start, Penn State announced that ve players have earned scholarships for the 2013-14 school year. Guard Bryan Davie, defensive end Carl Nassib, cornerback Devin Pryor, defensive tackle Tyrone Smith and running back Deron Thompson all received a one-year grant. Penn State is technically allowed to eld a full 85-scholarship team this season before cutting down to 65 for 2014 because of NCAA sanctions.

Five more earn scholarships

Former target in the spotlight

Penn States quarterback situation may have looked entirely different had Jake Waters picked the Lions back in December. But the highly regarded junior college recruit chose to stay closer to his Iowa home and went to Kansas State instead. On Monday, the Wildcats announced Waters had won their starting job, succeeding Heisman nalist Collin Klein under center.


Steelers guard Fosters turn has come

depth chart anyway. Hes started 42 of the 64 regular-season games Pittsburghs played since signing him as an undrafted free agent from Tennessee during the spring of 2009 and has nished the season in the starting lineup each of the last four years. Foster was in the lineup at right guard for each of the four postseason games the Steelers have played since he joined the team, including the Super Bowl. All that playing time hardly guaranteed Foster job security. Foster went into the ensuing seasons training camp as anything more than penciled in as a backup. Until now. You like to see a great story like that, somebody who came up from being an undrafted free agent and busts his tail, Steelers tackle Marcus Gilbert said. He was a guy that (the organization) didnt have much faith in, but I think that theyve grown on Ramon. They can count on him and they know hes one of the valuable guys on the team. And durable. Foster has avoided injury throughout his career, and his tenure has beneted via the injuries of others. During his rookie season, he stepped in for Chris Kemoeatu when the latter was injured. The following year, the Steelers turned to Foster twice when Chris Kemoeatu and, later, Trai Essex went down. In 2011, Foster started an early season game at left guard in place of an injured Kemoeatu and was in the lineup for the nal 15 games (including playoffs) at right guard when Doug Legursky was out. Last season, Foster likely wasnt going to start until rookie rst-round pick David DeCastro sustained a knee injury during a preseason game. By the time DeCastro was active again, veteran Willie Colon was out, so Foster stayed in. Finally, after four years of being a reliable starter even when not ofcially a starter, Foster was rewarded in March when the Steelers signed him to a three-year, $6 million contract and, by extension, handed him the starting gig at left guard. Thats never been an issue for Foster, who was a three-year starter at Tennessee. But he mostly played tackle there, partially the reason he slipped through the cracks at the 2009 NFL draft. Although he has lled in occasionally at tackle in Pittsburgh, Foster, at 6-foot-6 and 325 pounds, has clearly found a home at guard. And at 27, hes the senior member of a projected starting offensive line that also includes Pouncey (24), Gilbert (25), DeCastro (23) and tackle Mike Adams (23). Foster is a jovial, outgoing type, so his vocal leadership comes naturally. Teammates say his work ethic provides a solid example for younger players, too. He insists that part of his persona wont leave even now that hes nally earned the respect of the organization in the form of a guaranteed spot in the lineup.

PITTSBURGH After years of guratively working behind the scenes on the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line, Ramon Foster at last is under the metaphorical bright lights. Cameras from NFL Films shot Foster during training camp at Saint Vincent College earlier this month. Foster, a fth-year guard, and rookie lineman Mike Golic, Jr., are starring in a series of webisodes sponsored by a deodorant company. In the past, Foster was merely out to make a name for himself by working to impress enough to secure a roster spot or playing time. Its tting that as he enters his fth season assured of a starting job for the rst time, Fosters star turn has arrived. That guys a celebrity, man, affable Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey quipped, before turning serious. He deserves it. That guys been working his butt off for years before and he didnt get any (publicity) for it. Now hes getting all of it. He deserves it all. Over the rst four years of his career, Foster was used as little more than a spare part by the Steelers. Judging by the organizations personnel decisions, Foster wasnt just viewed as replaceable worse, he was indeed replaced. Repeatedly. But Foster kept rising to the top of the

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. Geno Smith appears not ready for prime time, and Mark Sanchez might not be ready for the opener. Now what for the New York Jets? Well, they have less than two weeks to solve their big quarterback question before they face Tampa Bay on Sept. 8 in the regular-season opener. We said from Day 1 that there was no timetable on us announcing a starting quarterback, coach Rex Ryan said Monday. And, theres no rush, of course except when you consider that the preseason is nearly over and the Jets still have no clarity on the situation. Smith was given an opportunity to possibly seize the start-

ing job last Saturday against the Giants, but came up with a dismal performance that included three interceptions and taking a safety when he stepped out of the back of the end zone. Sanchez, who appeared in great shape to win the competition, is now recovering from a shoulder injury suffered in garbage time against the Giants and could keep him out for the start of the season. It is conceivable, of course, that the Jets could keep everyone the media, fans and opponents guessing until the Friday before their game against the Buccaneers. Well probably have our decision before that, Ryan said. But as we said, were not going to rush the decision until were completely comfortable with that decision. And, well

stay with that. Hey, I dont know what else to say about it. Ryan is probably a bit surprised hes even still talking about the competition at this point. After all, it was deemed an open competition that would be decided when one of the quarterbacks had elevated himself above the other. But, it has been so tightly contested that there was no clear opening, an opportunity for most observers to say, Thats the guy. Until Saturday night. Thats when Smith showed his inexperience in his rst NFL start with some jitters, mistakes and missteps through three-plus quarters. It (was) pretty uneven, Smith said. I had some ups and downs. Its all a part of the learning curve.

Its a curve that could continue through Thursdays game against Philadelphia and into Week 1 against Tampa Bay. Ryan said the Jets havent yet determined whos playing against the Eagles, but Sanchez will certainly not. Many fans and media assumed Sanchez, with a solid camp and preseason performance, had clinched the starting job after Smiths performance. But then, Ryan wanted to see more of Sanchez, who went into the game and had his right shoulder crunched by Marvin Austin after completing a pass with less than 6 minutes left in the fourth quarter. Sanchez is day to day with the injury, which neither he nor Ryan would detail. Sanchez is staying positive, though, about potentially being ready for the season opener.

Stallworth, Edwards, McKnight among cuts

The Associated Press

Md. family sues over Frostburg St. football death Bama players dismiss talk
Associated Press Writer

Donte Stallworths NFL comeback from a hot air balloon accident might have ended Monday when he was released by the Washington Redskins. Stallworth could catch on with another team, especially with so many injuries at wide receiver throughout the league during the preseason. But, for now, the 32-year-old veteran of 10 NFL seasons is unemployed. I thought in his best interest, since I knew he wasnt going to be on the football team, was to tell him early, coach Mike Shanahan said. Give him a chance, possibly, to get with another football team.

Also cut Monday as NFL teams reduced their rosters they must be down to 75 on Tuesday were receiver Braylon Edwards and running back-kick returner Joe McKnight by the Jets; receiver Derek Hagan and fullback Spencer Larsen by Tampa Bay; linebacker and special teams ace Niko Koutouvides by New England; and receiver Jordan Norwood by Cleveland. The New York Giants activated defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul from the physically unable to perform list. Paul had disk surgery on his back in June, and its uncertain if he will be ready for the season opener at the Cowboys in less than two weeks.


The parents of a Frostburg State University football player who died after a second concussion accused coaches at the Maryland school of conducting gladiatorial high-speed drills that caused players to suffer repeated blows to the head. A wrongful-death lawsuit charges that 22-year-old Derek Sheely, of Germantown, Md., returned to the eld despite bleeding from his forehead during four consecutive practice sessions in August 2011. He was never checked for a concussion or to see if his helmet was properly tted, the lawsuit said. One of Dereks teammates described the demeanor of the practices leading up to Dereks fatal injury as completely out of control, the lawsuit said. What is more,

the word concussion is not stated a single time in Frostburgs team policies. Thus, the coaches treated all injuries brain injuries and ankle sprains the same: You were expected to play through them. The lawsuit, led last week in Maryland, names the school, the NCAA, head coach Thomas Rogish, helmet-maker Schutt Sports and others as defendants. The school and the NCAA declined immediate contact. A message was left with the helmet maker, which has operations in Easton, Pa. and Illinois. The lawsuit called the full-speed drills during the Division III schools preseason camp a gladiatorial thrill for the coaches. The two-a-day practices involved nearly nonstop, head-to-head collisions, especially for fullbacks like Sheely, who had to smash into linebackers at full speed during the so-called Oklahoma Drill, causing dozens

of concussive or subconcussive blows, the lawsuit said. Two other players had suffered concussion during camp, and team ofcials knew or should have known that Sheely had suffered a concussion the prior season. Catastrophic injuries from second-impact syndrome caused by a concussion that occurs before a previous one has fully healed are rare, but can prove fatal within minutes, according to Dr. Robert Cantu, a Boston neurologist and leading expert on sports concussions. In such instances, trauma to an already vulnerable brain causes severe swelling until the brain ruptures from the brain stem, Cantu said. Sheely, after having his forehead bandaged for several days, told an assistant coach he didnt feel right and had a headache on Aug. 22, 2011. He walked off the eld and collapsed, lapsing into a coma before he died six days later, the lawsuit said.

of 3-peat, expectations

AP Sports Writer

JOHN ZENOR TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron offers a primer for what it takes to t in with the top-ranked Crimson Tide football team. For starters, dont xate on the shot at a historic three-peat, BCSor-bust expectations or the anointment by pollsters as the team to beat. Its all about Virginia Tech, taking it one game at a time, staying focused and all the other cliches that get trotted out in the football

building each year about this time. In short, ignore what coach Nick Saban puts under the external factors umbrella. I feel like if you dont think that way, youre kind of irrelevant a little to the team, McCarron said Monday. Everybody needs to have the same mindset. We cant worry about what everybody thinks, what everybodys predicting. Just go out and play the game and take one play at a time, one game at a time and well be all right. That starts Saturday in Atlanta with the Hokies, who are coming off a 7-6 season.

From page 1B Andrew is the backbone to our team right now, Medico said. We all left a couple out there for sure but he played great. Chase didnt play his game today but that happens. If we all play well and score well and putt well, were going to be real tough to beat. Overall though it was a great day for Redeemer, which placed ve golfers among the top 11 scores, all nishing at 79 or lower. Alex Rowan, who had the highest score of the bunch with an 81, tied for 14th. It was nice to see the kids play together and was a nice start to the season, Brunn added. Im happy for them. Crestwood placed second in the team race scoring 315, while Coughlin (325), Tunkhannock (336) and Dallas (339) rounded out the top ve. The Crusaders Alex Anderson and the Comets Joe Hurn were the lowestscoring non-Royals, carding 74 to tie for third. Makowski and Crestwoods Billy Dombroski carded 76s to tie for fth.

Eric Seidle | For The Times Leader

The Tryba event always gives coaches a glimpse of whats to come during the regular season and postseason.

Most of the postseason dates are set beginning with the WVC Pre-district Tournament Sept. 23 at Fox Hill, while the District 2 tournaments are set for Oct. 7 at Elmhurst Country Club. Then comes the East Individual Regional on Oct. 15 at Golden Oaks Golf Club followed by the PIAA Individual Championships, Oct. 21-22 at Heritage Hills Golf Resort, Fleetwood.

From page 1B amount of playing time in the past senior Daniel Curry, junior Drew Devitt and sophomore Ryan Casey George has t in well. Hes progressing extremely fast and were thinking hes going to be an every down player there, but hes still ghting for a position, Sheptock said. Hes been running with multiple units in camp, getting time with the ones and twos. In addition to Bernsten, George and Curry, ve other seniors return on offense after seeing plenty of time in linemen Anthony Swain and Jake Jardel, receiver Tim Bousson, running backs Calvin Garvin and Auxence Wogou. Thats not mentioning the teams leading rusher from a year ago, Pat Inguilli who gained a team-leading 619 yards on the ground as a freshman or Wilkes three top receivers from a year ago, Payton Bachman (sophomore), Jon Conklin (junior) and Devitt.

Athlete of the Week

Kristi Bowman
School: Crestwood Grade: Senior Sport: Tennis Position: No. 1 singles All in the Family: Kristi is the daughter of Pete and Suzanne Bowman of Mountain Top. He gets some pointers on her game from her sister Cassie, a former Crestwood standout who also played for the University of Mary Washington in Virginia. Stats: Bowman went 3-0 during the week without losing a set at No. 1 singles, picking up her 43rd career singles victory along the way. Hitting winners: It was a strong start to the season for last years Class 2A District 2 singles seminalist, as Bowman began by taking a 6-1, 6-1 decision against Hazleton Area. That played pivotal in the teams 3-2 victory. Bowman also captured a 6-4, 6-0 decision against Hanover Area later in the week, then used a 6-4, 6-2 win at No. 1 to help propel Crestwood past Tamaqua in a non-league contest. Coachs corner: Kristis become very patient, Crestwood coach Scott Lenio said. As a freshman and sophomore she always wanted to blast the ball past the other girl, and that didnt always work for her. In our match against Tamaqua, she was very patient, worked on some topspin, cross-court points. If shes setting up an angle she could take, shed take the angle. She really likes to play. Did you know? When shes not pounding home points on the tennis court or studying hard while trying to further her education at a science college next year, Bowman can be found working hard at K-Mart. Week in review: If consistency is the key to golf, Coughlins Dalton Lentini is on the right fairway. Lentini shot an even-par 36 to lead the Crusaders past Dallas, then matched the score and hit par again in a win over Pittston Area. Wyoming Seminarys Jon Zirnheld shot the lowest score of the week, a par 33, in a tri-match with GAR and Meyers. Crestwoods Billy Dombroski had an up-anddown week, starting with a 40 in a victory over Berwick but improving to a 2-under 34 to help the Comets down Wyoming Valley West. And Lake-Lehmans Adam Motovidlak red a 36 in a victory over MMI Prep. Defending Class 2A District 2 seminalist Nathalie Joanlanne of Wyoming Seminary also got off to a fast start, whipping up a pair of straight-set victories against MMI and Pittston Area while losing just one point during the week.

It was a struggle last season for Wilkes pass defense, as it allowed 235.6 yards per game the most in the MAC as the secondary was young and inexperienced. The benets of the growing pains, though, are that they gained experience and now have a more thorough knowledge of the system. To say that was an Achilles heel for us would be an understatement, Sheptock added. Its an area that were struggling in right now. Were giving that a great amount of attention right now in camp and trying to improve and help our players as best we can there and trying to do it by not just focusing on one area but very much a comprehensive approach to it. With senior linebackers Tate Moore-Jacobs and D.J. Shuttleworth, and senior defensive linemen Rob Houseknecht and Tom Calabrese back in the mix, pressure on the quarterback will be big to help the secondary succeed; the Colonels only combined for 13 sacks in 2012. Jason Ugwu should help enormously in the sacks department as well. Last year, after not playing organized football at all, he piled up a team-high six sacks and 16 tackles for a loss.

Paul Sokoloski

kristi Bowman has been one of the top players in District 2 during her career at Crestwood.

Aimee Dilger | The Times Leader

Its a fact that the preseason conference rankings dont mean much. In this case, with the Colonels picked to nish sixth in the MAC, thats benecial. Wilkes has plenty of depth and the potential to be a much better team than it was the last few years. If some things get ironed out, the Colonels could be set to rise to the top of the conference once again.

USA hockey team expects to be a favorite in Sochi

forward Patrick Kane said Monday. This time, its different. USA Hockey invited 48 of its top prospects including 16 players from its 2010 team for off-ice workouts and meetings at the Washington Capitals training facility. Even though we invited 48 guys, I got calls from a few agents, Why not my guy? I get that, said general manager David Poile, whose day job is running the Nashville Predators. We put some guys on the board that arent at this camp that we should be looking at. Were totally open-minded. We have to take the 25 guys that give us the best chance to win. The players will get picked to play based on their body of work and how well they perform early in the NHL season. The nal roster is expected to be announced on Jan. 1 after Detroit and Toronto play in the Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium. Brian Burke, the teams general manager in 2010, set up an advisory group to assemble the roster. Poile plans to follow the model over the next four months. NHL general managers Stan Bowman, Dean Lombardi, Dale Tallon and Paul Holmgren along with scout Don Waddell will assist Poile, Ray Shero, the teams associate GM, Burke, the teams director of player personnel and USA Hockey executive Jim Johannson. Well have much harder decisions to make, picking this team than we had 2010, Burke said. Thats what you want. The advisory group met for ve hours Sunday, spending some of that time on talking about a possible roster and some tough decisions it will have to make. We have 16 returning Olympians that have a chance to make the team, Poile said. Weve got way

ARLINGTON, Va. The U.S. hockey team has ipped the script since the last Winter Olympics. The Americans expect to be a favorite to win gold in six months at the Sochi Games after saying they were underdogs in 2010, when they won silver and were a goal away from knocking off the host Canadians. The only people that thought we had a chance were probably the guys in the locker room, or our coaches and management of USA Hockey, Chicago Blackhawks star

more depth, and way more quality than we had in 2010. Six goaltenders were invited to the camp, and three will make the trip to Sochi. Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller was named MVP of the ice hockey tournament at the Vancouver Games, but hes not a lock to keep his job because Los Angeles Kings star Jonathan Quick has been perhaps the worlds best at stopping shots the past two seasons. NHL goalies Jimmy Howard, Cory Schneider, Craig Anderson, along with 20-year-old prospect John Gibson, also are in the mix.

Busch joining Stewart-Haas Racing next season

AP Auto Racing Writer

CHARLOTTE, N.C. Kurt Busch said Monday he has signed with Stewart-Haas Racing, which is rapidly developing into a super-team and will have four cars next season with the addition of the 2004 NASCAR champion. This is the kind of situation every driver wants to be in and Im

grateful to Gene Haas and Haas Automation for providing me this opportunity, Busch told The Associated Press. Gene wants to win, and wants me to go out there and perform to the best of my abilities. The deal was rst reported by Fox Sports and ESPN. A news conference was scheduled for Tuesday by SHR. Busch recently received an offer from SHR co-

owner Haas to leave Furniture Row Racing to join a team that will now expand next season to four cars. Hell be teammates with coowner Tony Stewart, who is out the rest of this year with a broken leg, Danica Patrick and Kevin Harvick, who is leaving Richard Childress Racing to join SHR. Once Stewart returns the team has said hell be back in time for next

years Daytona 500 SHR will have three drivers with a combined 96 Cup victories and four championships. They also have a combined 675 top-10 nishes. Patrick is in her rst full season of Cup. Harvick is replacing Ryan Newman in the lineup, and Stewart said last month that Newman was being let go because SHR did not have the capability to expand to four cars.

But Haas stepped in and courted Busch on his own, and will fund Buschs ride out of his own pocket with sponsorship from his CNC machine company. Furniture Row tried desperately to keep Busch, who joined the team with six races remaining last year and has the No. 78 Chevrolet in contention for a berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship for the rst time in team history.

It seems almost imminent that Kurt Busch will use a pending offer from Stewart-Haas Racing to end two seasons of purgatory and rejoin a top NASCAR team.

Those sleepy eyes always betrayed Tracy McGrady. Whether he was pouring in 13 points in 35 seconds for Houston in 2004 or sitting on the bench and watching the San Antonio Spurs win another playoff game in June without needing him, that cool expression rarely changed. It all looked almost too easy for McGrady, even if it rarely was. McGrady announced his retirement from the NBA on Monday, ending a 16-year career that included two scoring titles, seven All-Star appearances, injuries to his knee and back and zero playoff series wins while he was leading the way. The straightfrom-high school project who blossomed into a dominant, two-way superstar will always be remembered, too, as a player who struggled with injuries. Thank all of you who have supported me over 16 NBA seasons, 7 AllStars, and countless exciting moments, McGrady tweeted on Monday morning. Retiring from NBA.

Stay tuned. McGrady didnt rule out continuing his career overseas, perhaps in China where he played last season. Ofcially retired from the NBA, he said on ESPN. Doors still open. McGrady was drafted by Toronto out of high school in 1997 and was outshined early in his career by Raptors star Vince Carter, McGradys distant cousin. He became a star in Orlando, was traded to Houston in 2004 and also played for the Knicks, Pistons and Hawks before nishing up his career with the Spurs last season. He averaged 19.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game in his career and at one point was considered one of the best perimeter players of his generation, a talent that rivaled Kobe Bryant and any other player in the league. Congrats to Tracy McGrady on an awesome career, LeBron James tweeted. 7-time All-NBA (2 1st Team), 2-time scoring champ, and just an allaround dazzling talent. The Raptors drafted

McGrady ninth overall out of Mount Zion Academy and spoon-fed him early while his body developed to withstand the rigors of the NBA. By his third season, McGrady was averaging 15.4 points, 6.3 rebounds and showing all the early signs of becoming a star. He left Toronto after that season, joining up with Grant Hill in Orlando, which is where some of the hard luck that plagued McGrady for years rst started to surface. There are a lot of things that go into winning in the NBA, former Rockets coach Jeff Van Gundy said in a phone interview. And until McGradys body betrayed him, he was a dominant player. McGradys body wasnt the only one that let him down. Hill hardly played in his rst two seasons in Orlando, leaving McGrady to carry the load all by himself. He averaged 33.8 points per game in the Magics rst-round playoff loss to Milwaukee, then scored 30.8 per game in a four-game loss to Charlotte the following season.

TORONTO R.A. Dickey pitched into the seventh inning, Jose Reyes sparked Torontos offense and the Blue Jays snapped a 10-game losing streak against the New York Yankees with a 5-2 victory on Monday night. AlexRodriguezhithis650th home run, a leadoff drive in the fth, but the Yankees lost for the ninth time in 13 road games this month. Rodriguez is 10 homers away from tying Willie Mays for fourth on the career list, which would secure a $6 million bonus for the third baseman. Derek Jeter went hitless in his return to New Yorks lineup. Jeter, who started at shortstop and batted second, nished 0 for 3 with a walk, grounding into a double play in the third. Reyes walked and scored in the third, and doubled and scored in Torontos three-run fth as the Blue Jays beat the Yankees for just the second time in 14 meetings this season. Toronto had lost 10 straight to its division rival since an 8-4 home win on April 21. Dickey (10-12) allowed two runs, one earned, and six hits in 6 1-3 innings to win for the rst time since Aug. 5 at Seattle. The knuckleballer was 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA in his three previous starts. It was Dickeys rst victory over the Yankees since May 21, 2011, when he played for the New York Mets. Rodriguezs home run was the 29th allowed by Dickey this season, second only to Oaklands A.J. Grifn. Dickey has given up 20 homers in 14 home starts. Aaron Loup worked 1 1-3 innings, Sergio Santos got one out in the eighth and Casey Janssen nished for his 24th save in 26 chances. New York right-hander Phil Hughes (4-13) allowed ve runs, four earned, and seven hits in 4 2-3 innings. He is 0-6 with a 5.84 ERA in his last nine starts.

DETROIT Coco Crisp and Daric Barton each drove in two runs, and the Oakland Athletics beat Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers 8-6 on Monday night.

From page 1B in the AL with a .302 batting average, has already surpassed his previous career high RBI total by 33 and leads everyone in both leagues in home runs. Most importantly, hes got four more homers than Cabrera, who last year became the rst player to win the Triple Crown since Carl Yastrzemski did it in 1967. Davis understands the signicance of the accomplishment. Obviously when somebody does something like that, not only is it extremely hard to do, but it doesnt happen very often, he said. You have to appreciate that. Only two players in baseball history have won it twice: Rogers Hornsby in 1922 and 1925, and Ted Williams in 1942 and 1947. One is pretty special to have. Its a pretty impressive feat to win it once, Orioles catcher Matt Wieters said. So, Im going to root for Chris to keep rolling. Whether Miggy wins the Triple Crown or not, I dont think anybodys going to doubt what kind of a player and hitter he is. No one will argue that Cabrera is among the nest right-handed hitters ever to play the game. In most years, 42 homers with a week to play in August would be good enough for the league lead. Not this year. Cabrera has been in catch-up mode for months behind the man nicknamed Crush. We dont worry about him, Cabrera insisted. We focus on what we can do here in Detroit.

Mets ace Harvey has torn ligament

AP Sports Writer

Detroit Tigers Miguel Cabrera hits a three-run double against the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday in Detroit.

Cabrera and Davis havent been in touch since the All-Star game, when Detroits third baseman had some meaningful words of advice for Davis, who was in the midst of a career year. One of the things he told me was, Dont let the talking heads get to you, Davis said. Down the stretch everybody is going to compare us and say that this guy is doing this or this guy is doing that. But the biggest thing is to go out there and continue to play. He said, Youre having a great year. You have something to be proud of. Its not whether you nish with better numbers than I do, because youve still had a great year. I really appreciated that. Davis wont measure his success in 2013 by the numbers of home runs he hits. Hes more focused on the numbers in the victory

column for Baltimore. Chris is a huge team guy, Wieters said. Hes about winning more than anything. Were all rooting for him because of that, because he cares more about us winning than any kind of home run title. Everybody in this clubhouse is rooting for him to keep going because, one, its going to help us win and two, because he deserves it. Said Davis: Theres going to be a different home run king every year. Somebody is going to come along and break somebody elses record. For me, the individual awards are nice, but at the end of the day, I play for the ultimate team award. To say that you were part of a winning team, or even a championship team, is something that nobody can ever take away from you. Thats how I feel about it.

NEW YORK Matt Harvey has a partially torn ligament in his right elbow, a potentially devastating injury for the pitcher that had given the foundering New York Mets reason to be hopeful about their future. For now, the 24-year-old Harvey and the Mets hope that he will be able to avoid reconstruction surgery on the ulnar collateral ligament. A full prognosis will not be made until swelling in the elbow goes down in about two weeks. It was tough. Obviously it was the last thing I was expecting when I went this morning, Harvey said Monday. I am going to do everything I can to avoid surgery. The National Leagues All-Star game starter on his home eld this July, Harvey has been experiencing forearm tenderness for a month or two but could not pinpoint exactly when it began. The discomfort increased during his start Saturday against the Detroit Tigers, when he allowed a career-high 13 hits. Harvey admitted he was tired against the Tigers, the 26th start of his rst full season in the major leagues. Manager Terry Collins said he noticed Harveys pitches werent as crisp, a sign of fatigue. But Collins didnt know Harvey had any issues with his forearm until Sunday and the ace went for an MRI at the Hospital for Special Surgery a day later. Nothing is shooting in my elbow at all. Thats not the issue, Harvey said. When I heard the news, I was pretty shocked. Im still very optimistic.

PAWTUCKET, R.I. A two-run bottom of the ninth loss officially eliminated the RailRiders from playoff contention. The Pawtucket Red Sox avoided a shutout in the final frame to silence the S c ra n t o n / WilkesB a r r e RailRiders 2-1 on Red Sox Monday at McCoy Stadium. B r e t t RailRiders Marshall gave the RailRiders seven shutout innings but the bullpen couldnt close the door, only earning one out in the ninth before Mark Hamilton singled through the right side to drive home Jackie Bradley Jr. Cesar Cabral entered the ninth looking for a two-inning save but took the loss. Cabral loaded the bases without earning any outs by walking Jeremy Hazelbaker, allowing a double to Bradley Jr, and plunking Brock Holt. Jim Miller had a blown save, yielding a Ryan Lavarnway sacrifice fly and the game-winning Hamilton single. Marshall allowed just two hits and did not walk a batter. He tied a careerhigh with nine strikeouts, and retired 17 consecutive batters after allowing a single to Bradley Jr. in the bottom of the first. Marshall hurled 93 pitches, 63 of them for strikes. It was exactly one year ago on Monday night that Marshall had last struck out nine batters as a member of the Trenton Thunder. S cranton/WilkesBarre received its only run of the game in the top of the first. Corey Patterson homered to right-center field. It was Pattersons fifth home run as a RailRider, and it gave Marshall an early 1-0 lead. The former Cub went 2-for-4. Allen Webster was matched up well with Marshall, but like his SWB counterpart, he earned the no-decision. Webster went eight innings, and allowed just the Patterson home run and one other hit. He walked three, and struck out five batters. Jose De La Torre (4-1) worked a scoreless top of the ninth to pick-up the win. Bradley had a 3-for-4 outing for the Red Sox.

CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER straight months of increases. Durable goods are items meant to last at least three years. Economists tend to focus on orders for so-called core capital goods. Those orders fell 3.3 percent, but the drop followed four straight months of gains. Core capital goods are considered a good measure of businesses condence in the economy. They include items that point to expansion such as machinery, computers and heavy trucks while excluding volatile orders for aircraft and defense. The big drop suggests the third quarter is off to a weaker start than some had hoped. While economists cautioned that its just one month of data, a few lowered their growth estimates for the July-September quarter after seeing the durable goods report. Economists at Barclays Capital now predict third-quarter growth at an annual rate of 1.9 percent, down from their previous forecast of 2.1 percent. At the very least, it is a reminder that the expected pick-up in economic growth in the second half of the year will be gradual, Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics, said in an email. One bright spot was that unlled orders rose to their highest level since record began in 1992. Those are orders that were placed in previous months but yet to be shipped. The increase suggests output could remain steady in the coming months, despite the weak month of orders in July. THE TIMES LEADER


Mohegan Sun creates new position

Orders for long-lasting goods plunge

AP Economics Writer

Pennsylvania has promoted an executive to a newly established job overseeing sports and entertainment. The Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority announced on Monday the appointment of Tom Cantone as senior vice president of sports and entertainment. He held a similar position at the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut since 2007. He will now oversee all aspects of entertainment at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn., Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in Plains Township and Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, N.J.

EDWARDSVILLE Another national frozen yogurt chain has made its way into Luzerne County, and the owner of the newest local franchise said the reason is simple. Melissa Posluszny, who co-owns and manages the YoGo Factory in the Gateway Shopping Center with Joe Digris of Frackville, said the model is expanding because its fun and its healthy.

Drug maker makes a $10.4B buy

Muriel Mickie Siebert, who started as a trainee on Wall Street and became the rst woman to own a seat on the New York Stock Exchange, died Saturday from complications of cancer at age 80. Siebert was founder and president of brokerage rm that bears her name, Muriel Siebert & Co. Inc. The company went public in 1996 as Siebert Financial Corp. Siebert, who was born in Cleveland and moved to New York in 1954 at age 22, started her career as a trainee in research at Bache & Co. earning a $65 a week. She went on to become an industry specialist in airlines and aerospace and later became a partner at brokerages including Brimberg & Co. She bought a seat on the New York Stock Exchange in December 1967 after months of struggling with the male-dominated business world that initially resisted her efforts to join. She established her investment rm the same year and transformed it into a discount brokerage house in 1975.

WASHINGTON Orders for long-lasting U.S. factory goods fell sharply last month as demand for commercial aircraft plummeted and businesses spent less on computers and electrical equipment. Manufacturing continues to struggle and could prevent economic growth from picking up in the July-September quarter. Orders for durable goods plunged 7.3 percent in July, the Commerce Department said Monday. Its the steepest drop in nearly a year. Excluding the volatile transportation category, orders fell just 0.6 percent. Both declines followed three

And orders for autos and auto parts rose 0.5 percent, the second straight gain. Auto sales jumped 14 percent in July compared with a year earlier. Manufacturing has slumped

this year, hurt by weakness overseas that has dragged on U.S. exports. But there have been signs that factory activity could pick up in the second half of the year.

Frozen yogurt now found in Edwardsville

Owner of YoGo Factory says fun is key to shops success.

Township in the Walmart plaza along Highland Park Boulevard. Froyo Mania opened along East Northampton Street in downtown Wilkes-Barre in May, and

two locations of Loco Yoco opened, one in Dallas and one in West Pittston. A third location of Loco Yoco was in the works but has since been pulled

off the drawing board, owner Nanda Palissery said. Posluszny, of Shickshinny Lake, said what makes the YoGo Factory different is it offers the customer a total frozen yogurt experience. Our store is much larger than your typical frozen yogurt shop and offers an inviting feel, lled with family seating, a huge, 50-foot granite yogurt bar, and both free Wi-Fi and wall mounted iPads, she said. Our main focus is not just the best tasting, creamiest froyo, but also is to provide each and every customer a total frozen yogurt experience rather than a get in, get out type of experience. The store employs 20 and offers 21 avors at any given time out of 50 available avors and more than 50 toppings. The toppings and frozen yogurt are self-serve, something

else that Posluszny said is key to the customer experience. I think its a big thing for the younger generation to come in and be creative and have that control, Posluszny said. Palissery said he absolutely believes there is room in this region for multiple frozen yogurt locations as theyre like mom and pop ice cream shops serving each neighborhood. He said he does not believe each new store is siphoning off customers from another one; instead, theyre bringing in new customers that may not have been introduced to frozen yogurt. Posluszny said the West Side has nothing like this and the community has been very welcoming and very supportive. Its a hangout, she said. It offers another alternative for the healthy living lifestyle.

The ability to push a quaint narrative about a products origins and fuel a sense of nostalgia can help drive billions of dollars in sales. Thats invaluable at a time when food makers face greater competition from smaller players and cheaper supermarket store brands that appeal to cash-strapped Americans. Its why companies such as Coca-Cola and Twinkies owner Hostess play up the notion that their recipes are sacred, unchanging docuRUSSELL 2000 1,038.47

ments that need to be closely guarded. As it turns out, some recipes have changed over time, while others may not have. Either way, they all stick to the same script that their formulas have remained the same. John Ruff, who formerly headed research & development at Kraft Foods, said companies often recalibrate ingredients for various reasons, including new regulations, uctuations in commodity costs and other issues that impact mass food production. Its almost this mythological thing, the secret formula, said the president

of the Institute of Food Technologists, which studies the science of food. I would be amazed if formulas (for big brands) havent changed. This summer, the Twinkies cream-lled cakes many Americans grew up snacking on made a comeback after being off shelves for about nine months following the bankruptcy of Hostess Brands. At the time, the new owners promised the spongy yellow cakes would taste just like people remember. A representative for Hostess, Hannah Arnold, said in an email that Twinkies today are remarkably close to the original recipe, not-

ing that the rst three ingredients are still enriched our, water and sugar. Yet a box of Twinkies now lists more than 25 ingredients and has a shelf-life of 45 days, almost three weeks longer than the 26 days from just a year ago. That suggests the ingredients have been tinkered with, to say the least, since they were created in 1930. When Twinkies rst came out they were largely made from fresh ingredients, notes Steve Ettlinger, author of Twinkie, Deconstructed, which traced the roots of the cakes many modern-day industrial ingredients.

People never outgrow need to exercise, doctor says

Akron Beacon Journal

AKRON, Ohio Youre never too old to start a new fitness routine. All Americans can benefit by embracing exercise regardless of their age, even if its just walking 15 minutes a day to start, said Dr. Richard Kratche, medical director for the Cleveland Clinic Twinsburg Family Health and Surgery Center. The truth is, its never too late to start exercising, he said. Everybody can start where theyre at and gradually work up. The benefits are huge. Two-thirds of Americans are overweight

or obese, resulting in all kinds of diseases and maladies, he said. Sedentary seniors who have significant health conditions and illnesses should talk with a doctor before getting started, Kratche said. That said, you dont really need a doctors note to walk around a store, he said. People can start walking. Literally, if they can only walk five minutes, the goal is to walk five minutes, but do it every day, and then after a week or two up it to 10 minutes. The goal is to build up activity levels and achieve a weekly minimum of 150 minutes of walking at a brisk pace, he said. THE TIMES LEADER


Though some types of arthritis are crippling, the most common form (osteoarthritis) actually benefits from moderate activity to improve range of motion, he said. Running tends to be harder on joints than walking, he said. Swimming is another activity many older patients also can enjoy. Kratche also recommends people consider exercising with others. The advantage to walking or exercising with others is the time flies, Kratche said. We have these wonderful conversations as you walk. Athletes of all ages should pay attention to

the weather, he said. When it gets really hot and humid, hydration becomes even more important. Stretching also is recommended for all ages before exercising, but probably as we get older, loosening up and taking time to warm up prior to activities is a good idea, he said. Exercise is so important, he said. Everybody and anybody can do it. We dont exercise at our peril. Exercise is a wonderful stress reducer, and all of us have stress in our life. Being able to burn some of that off on a walking path or a pool is a great benefit. Its just good medicine.

Fresh generation of implants giving new life to old bones

she could only dream of a few months earlier. Arthritis had worn away so much of the cartilage in Olsons right knee that it was just bone grinding on bone. The pain had steadily worsened for two years, making it difcult for her to walk up the stairs of her home. She teaches rst grade in Irvine, and its tough to meet the all-day needs of 30 kids when you can barely rise from your chair. On April 23, she had total knee replacement surgery. Four weeks later, she was back in class. On July 13, her daughter Lauren got married, and Denise was able to walk down the aisle. Later, during the reception, when Denise and her husband, Chad, were sitting together, the DJ played Come Away With Me by Norah Jones, which happens to be the couples song. He invited her onto the dance oor. She accepted. Just the two of us got up and danced on the oor. It was wonderful, said Olson, who is 54. I got to dance with my daughter and my son-in-law. And

You get these cards from people, and theyre traveling all over the world. Theyre on their bicycles, and theyre on cruise SANTA ANA, Calif. Denise Olson ships. Its not life and death, but quality of life has become so danced at her daughters wedding. That might not sound like a profound important that people really appreciate it. Particularly if theyve accomplishment, but it was a moment been debilitated for a long period of time.

the party went on until the closing hours. Better implants, improved surgical techniques and a more in-depth understanding of how to treat a patients pain during and after surgery have helped make total knee replacements available to a wider patient base, from younger people like Olson to long-suffering seniors. The evolution of the procedure comes at a time of surging demand: About 600,000 total knee replacements were performed in the United States last year, and that number is expected to increase to 3.5 million a year by 2030. The need for surgery is exploding, says Dr. James T. Caillouette, surgeon in chief at Hoag Orthopedic Institute in Irvine, Calif. Shorter hospital stays and faster, less

painful recovery periods have made the operation popular among patients who are both older and younger than used to be the norm for such candidates. Baby boomers are hitting the age at which

their knees are wearing out, and theyre not willing to give up their active lifestyles without a ght. I would say at least half of my patient population is under 65, Caillouette said. Twenty years ago,

that was not the case. But its not unusual for me to see a patient in their late 30s or 40s with end-stage arthritis who needs surgery. We used to be See KNEES | 2C

When the babys outlook is bleak, perinatal hospice offers range of support
The Baltimore Sun


BALTIMORE Jenny Mohler lay on an examining bed holding her pregnant belly at Sinai Hospital in Northwest Baltimore. Sonogram pictures hung from a machine in the right corner of the room. She was nervous, unable to block a feeling of uneasiness as she waited for a specialist to come in and decipher the images. Just two days earlier, the Catonsville, Md., resident had received a call while sitting at her desk at a Catholic Charities health clinic in Baltimore, where she worked as a school counselor. There were developmental concerns about the baby, Dr. Mary Ann Sorra told her. The babys head was misshapen and its limbs short. Dont worry, Sorra told Mohler, but more tests were needed as soon as possible. Mohler, who was 19 weeks into her pregnancy, began a frantic Internet search, typing developmental disorders and short limbs into her ofce computer. Could it be Down syndrome? Or maybe dwarsm? As she and husband John, now 33, waited at Sinai that September day last year, he tried to assure her that nothing major was wrong. She wanted to stay positive, but it was difcult. A perinatologist who deals in high-risk pregnancies came into the room to deliver the diagnosis: Your baby has thanatophoric dysplasia, they remember him saying. The Mohlers unborn child was

suffering from a rare disorder whose name meant deathbearing malformation in Greek that would prevent the rib cage from growing, smothering the

heart and lungs. The baby would likely be stillborn. Or it would die shortly after birth, unable to breathe on its own. The baby, whose sex they

didnt even know yet, had just been given a death sentence. Two months later, across town at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Kimberly Queen lay in a bed 30 weeks pregnant and ghting for her life. Machines beeped all around her, monitoring her blood pressure, heart rate and other vital signs. A nutritional tube ran from her arm, trying to nourish a body so frail that her organs were on the verge of shutting down. Queens health was deteriorating from hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition that causes severe nausea and vomiting, making it hard for expectant mothers to keep enough nutrients in their bodies. The Elkridge, Md., resi-

dent had cycled in and out of the hospital her entire pregnancy, and just days before Thanksgiving was admitted to Howard County General Hospital. Her symptoms were so severe that doctors transferred her by ambulance to Hopkins for more specialized care. A small group of doctors in scrubs entered her room to give Queen and her ance, Keith Brown, now 34, some news about her fourth child. Brown held her hand while two doctors sat in chairs near the bed. One did most of the talking. An ultrasound, the doctor said, showed blood and uid around the brain of the baby Queen already had named Kirsten. The babys weight was below normal, and she probably wouldnt survive the pregnancy. If she did, her quality of life would not be good. She might not be able to breathe on her own, the doctors said, urging Queen to consider terminating the pregnancy. Queen, a certied nurse technician at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, took the news as if she were on the job. She felt the doctors were talking about some other patient, someone other than her. She found herself explaining to her ance what the doctors were saying, but not fully absorbing the news herself. She said little to them. But in the middle of the night, her maternal instinct kicked in. She woke up and could think of one thing: Her baby might die. A matter of faith Queen and Mohler discovered

themselves in a spot they would never have predicted: grieving instead of celebrating new life and growing families. Terminating the pregnancy was not an option for either. Mohler cited her strong Catholic beliefs. Queen wanted to give her baby every chance to live, no matter the odds. Their predicaments would become the most trying they had ever confronted. Doctors encouraged Queen and Mohler to connect with a hospice program to handle the myriad emotions. Both women turned to Gilchrist Kids, a division of Towson, Md.based Gilchrist Hospice Care, one of a handful of hospices in the area with a perinatal component. They were connected with social worker Briana Shirey, who became a source of comfort. Queen, now 33, said her doctors focused on the possibility of terminating the pregnancy and pushed palliative care for the baby to prepare her for death after she was born. But Queen did not want to think about that; she even ignored advice to contact Gilchrist. I was feeling my baby moving around in me, she recalled. I had already seen the sonogram with her features. She had the nose of my son, the mouth of my daughter. In order for me to accept the possibility that my child wasnt going to be here anymore, I had to know I did everything I could to make sure the doctors did what they could to save her. One afternoon, she was sitting See pERINATAL | 6C

patients will literally say to you, I dont want to live if I cant walk. Because its not much of a life for an elderly patient to be trapped inside. Theyre cut off from their family and their friends. They want to be back to who they were. How it works Total knee replacement, also called arthroplasty, might be a misnomer: The entire knee isnt cut out. In fact, many of the parts are kept in, including the ligaments at the edges of the joint, the lateral and medial collateral ligaments, as well as the patella bone and its own ligament. The procedure is commonly recommended in people whose articular cartilage, which covers the thigh bone (femur), has been ravaged by degenerative osteoarthritis. The meniscuses, the disc-shaped pads between the cartilage on the femur and the shinbone (tibia), also can wear over the years. The femur and tibia are shaved down to make way for the implant, which resurfaces the bones. Imagine youre essentially doing a retread on a tire, Caillouette said. Most implants have a metal tray that holds a plastic platform that stands in for the meniscus. The covering on the femur is super-strong metal, and when the knee bends, the pieces glide on top of one another. Earlier generations of the implant used titanium, but that metal was found to wear out too quickly, Caillouette said. Newer models use cobalt-chrome, a longer-lasting alloy. The plastics in them also are harder and more wear-resistant, says Caillouettes colleague Dr. Robert S. Gorab, the chief medical ofcer at Hoag Orthopedic Institute. Several companies have come out with revised knee systems this year. At an annual meeting of orthopedic surgeons in Chicago earlier this year, there was so much buzz about the new versions of knee implants on display that the trade magazine Orthopedic Design & Technology dubbed 2013 the year of the knee. New rollouts include the Persona by Zimmer, the Journey II by Smith & Nephew, and the Attune by DePuy Synthes, a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary. The latter was developed with help from Caillouette THE TIMES LEADER and Gorab, who were part of an international team of surgeons that worked on the Attune for more than six years. The project cost about $200 million, one of J&Js most expensive ever. Researchers studied how patients move, and what deciencies had hampered previous designs. Although knee replacement had historically been a very successful procedure, some patients had complained that their implants felt unstable as they tried to walk stairs, or that the gadgets simply felt strange inside them. The goal was, whats it going to take to make it invisible? Caillouette said. The science of pain Hoag Orthopedic Institute, which opened in November 2010, has become one of the highestvolume orthopedic centers in the country. Nearly 1,500 knee replacements were performed there in 2012, a 28 percent increase over 2011. DePuy launched the Attune in March (Caillouette implanted the rst one on the West Coast), and between that model and the others, the 70-bed hospital should become an even busier place. Patients are usually kept for at least one night after undergoing the procedure, but the protocol for their treatment has changed vastly over the years. Knee surgery hurts, a lot, and this used to be a dealbreaker for many patients. But Caillouette says patients receive different kinds of pain treatment: Gone are the days when only general anesthesia would be used, leaving the patient groggy and out of sorts upon awakening. Also, more care is taken to avoid cutting some soft tissue inside the knee. Now a patient will wake up from surgery without pain, said Caillouette, who along with Gorab is a founding partner of the Hoag institute. They dont need IV narcotic pain medicine around the clock, because were giving them little doses of different things, as opposed to hitting them with a sledgehammer. Lieberman, of USC, says some patients can be given anti-inammatories three days before the procedure, a step he calls pre-emptive analgesia. A patient might receive a spinal anesthesia or a femoral nerve block, isolated in the knee area. Post-op, drugs can be administered that can last for days, giving the patient time to get up and moving. Patients are now encouraged, by nurses and physical therapists, to begin walking within six hours. Theyre putting weight on it right away, that night, Lieberman said. Thats allowed us to discharge them earlier, which is very good for them mentally and medically. Patients can go home the next day, or two days after the surgery. Olson, who was one of Caillouettes patients, was able to walk into his ofce for a checkup 10 days after her operation. Shes still in physical therapy to improve her lateral exibility and range of motion. Success stories Most implants adhere to the bone by a cement-like substance called polymethly methacrylate. The adhesive can eventually fail, as could other components; the plastic platform is also more likely to show wear than the metal above and below it (the platform itself can be replaced). Because of these factors, its unknown how long a shelf life the new generation of implants can have. That makes it tricky to recommend treatment to very young patients, like those in their 40s. Redos, or reimplantations, can be complicated. One goal is to create an implant that doesnt need cement, and instead begin to grow into the bone. That would make it last longer. Right now, cementless total hips in the United States dominate the market, he said. So in total knee replacements, if you got to the stage where you could reliably get in-growth and stability in the components right away the hope is that it would be more durable in younger patients. Jerry Brooks of Newport Beach, Calif., got his arthritic right knee replaced in 2002, and his left knee in 2003. He says his X-rays show almost no wear at all in his models, called the Smith & Nephew Journey. Hed had problems with the right knee for years, and it nally gave out while he was competing in the 2001 Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii. I feel like Im 25, says Brooks, who is 72 and in remarkable physical shape, for any age. He doesnt race so much anymore, but he still runs 25 miles a week, bikes 150 miles, and swims 5,000 to 8,000 yards. Im grateful for the fact that I got two gifts, so I can continue doing what I want to do. Lieberman says those kinds of stories inspire him.

From page 1C used to be very fearful of doing that, because we didnt think the implants would last very long. Now, with the new generation of designs and materials, they look like theyre going to last a very long time, 20 to 30 years or longer. But even the boomers Greatest Generation parents are getting the implants in higher numbers. Life expectancy keeps increasing, of

course, but theres also a greater awareness of how quickly health can decline if immobility leaves an elderly person homebound and isolated. A lot of the patients will come in and think theyre too old. And theres nobody whos too old for the operation anymore, says Dr. Jay R. Lieberman, head of orthopedic surgery at the University of Southern Californias Keck School of Medicine. The major reason why we do these operations in patients in their 90s is for pain, and because

Duck Dynastyis a canny curation of cultures

Los Angeles Times


210 Division St. | Kingston | 288-3607

Reality TV is experiencing another Mad Men moment, with bandannas and iced tea in place of fedoras and highballs. Last week, the Season 4 premiere of Duck Dynasty drew nearly 12 million viewers, making A&Es celebration of backwoods Alabama the No. 1 nonction show on cable and the No. 1 show of the week. Suddenly people who wouldnt know a Louisiana cedar if their Prius ran into it were chattering about the Robertsons, an extended clan of duck-call magnates who have been entertaining an increasing percentage of the population with their family-centric, redneck-and-proud hijinks. With the shoulder-length hair and Old Testament beards, the Robertson men catch and eat bullfrogs, race souped-up riding mowers and take their wives deer hunting. They ght over who blew up the duck blind, pull pranks on their Uncle Si and do anything to avoid the wrath of their wives.

Critics and cable execs can brag all they want about the growing sophistication of the idiot box, but in the end, people want to watch what theyve always wanted to watch: a bunch of good ol boys trying to weasel out of work so they can go shin. The Robertsons occupy a very American cultural sweet spot, in which great wealth coexists with a sort of nationally beloved folksiness. Their duck calls now fuel an empire called Duck Commander. In West Monroe, La., the Robertsons hunt, sh and mingle with the locals down at the hardware store. But in contrast to realitys other beloved rednecks, Honey Boo Boo and such, they require neither coupons nor subtitles. They may be backwoods, but they aint poor nor ignorant. Patriarch Phil was a star quarterback for Louisiana Tech who turned down an offer from the Washington Redskins because professional football would have interfered with duck season. Third son Willie, who expanded Duck Commander and now serves as CEO, has a business degree; he and his wife, Korie, a

local who has known Willie since childhood, attended the same college. Willie and his brothers Jase and Jep may tell the occasional fart joke and prefer play to work, but they are all smart, articulate and equally deft with a well-placed oneliner as a deadpan pause. Likewise the sins associated with hillbilly culture drinking, sloth, prejudice and a propensity for violence are utterly absent here. The Robertsons are prayerful Christians. Beyond Phils continual celebration of women who know how to cook and carry the Bible, Duck Dynasty is resolutely nonpolitical. The show has cast itself, smartly, as a classic mischief-maker tale, minus acrimony or shock. Animals may be harmed, but people are not. To ensure the message is clear, Willie provides a John-Boy-like voice-over at the end of each show reminding viewers that the only thing that matters is family. The miracle of the show, and the family, is they are at once quite sincere about their identity and in on their own joke.

More migraine sufferers turning to surgical,alternative treatments

The Dallas Morning News


Swollen eyes, nausea, pressure so intense they feel their eyes might pop migraine sufferers learn to describe the pain in many ways. Its like everythings closing in because youre hurting so bad, says Phyllis Little of Wichita Falls, Texas. Littles near-daily migraines and sensitivity to light and sound left her debilitated. Experts say theres no cure for migraine, and like many chronic sufferers, Little tried many treatments before she found some relief. Although there is no cure, people with occasional migraine headaches have many options, from medication to dietary changes. For chronic sufferers such as Little, there are more extreme measures. Botox injections, which helped Little, have become mainstream in recent years. Some doctors offer lessproven surgical alternatives. Thanks to a marketing push, one such surgery implanted neurostimulation has received attention in Dallas under the name Omega Procedure. Another option, nerve decompression surgery, is performed at a few major hospitals nationwide, including in Texas. While practitioners point to success stories, the American Headache Society says the surgeries are unproved, so its important for patients to understand options and implications. Botox The most widely used of these procedures is a familiar x for frown lines and wrinkles. Botox blocks nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. In patients with migraine, the treatment is usually a series of injections across the forehead, temples and the back of the neck. I like it in some cases, says Dr. George Nissan of the Baylor Headache Center, but I dont go to it rst line. Nissan describes lines of defense against migraine. His initial treatment usually involves lifestyle changes, like avoiding trigger foods or adding an exercise routine, as well as preventive medication. Nissan considers Botox a step beyond these early measures. The Food and Drug Administration approved the use of Botox for migraines in late 2010. Nissan says hes been using the treatment for a decade. This type of off-label treatment, involving drugs approved to treat other conditions such as seizures, is common. Botox is approved to treat only migraine headaches designated as chronic patients must document theyve had 15 or more headache days a month, and that eight of those were severe. Before suggesting

Botox, Nissan asks patients to keep a headache diary for close to three months. He says the treatments can be prohibitively expensive. Each one, involving as many as 31 injections, can cost more than $1,000. The drug effects last only about three months. Rather than focusing on the specic cause, Nissan tries to tackle the problem from a variety of angles. He often uses the rst injection as a test. If it doesnt reduce a patients pain level in the initial round, hell seek another treatment. Its not like xing a car where you go in, you need a tuneup and you expect the car to be perfect when you get out of the garage, Nissan says. With headache it doesnt work that way. Surgical alternatives Unlike Botox, surgical treatment for migraine remains controversial. Nerve decompression aims for complete relief, while neurostimulation aims to reduce pain levels. Doctors point to what they deem success stories, and ads promise relief. Some experts are skeptical. According to a statement released last year by the American Headache

American Headache Society: americanheadachesociety. org For nerve decompression: Dr. Bahman Guyuron, services/plastic-surgery For Botox: botoxchronic For implanted neurostimulation: Baylors Center for Pain Management,

Society, a professional organization of health-care providers, surgery for migraine is a last-resort option and is probably not appropriate for most sufferers. To date, there are no convincing or denitive data that show its long-term value. Dr. Elizabeth Loder, the societys president-elect and the chief of the division of headache and pain in the department of neurology at Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston, says randomized, controlled, multicenter studies are the standard by which surgeries should be measured. Both treatments have undergone randomized clinical trials published in medical journals, but Loder said nerve decompression in particular is unproved.

Its important to separate fact from wish, and the way to do that is to hold these treatments to the same standards that we hold other drugs, Loder says. Implanted neurostimulation Implanted neurostimulation uses wires the width of spaghetti noodles to deliver electrical stimulation and ease migraine pain. he stimulators are implanted under the skin near the forehead or the back of the neck. Theyre attached by wires to a battery pack, about the size of a silver dollar, placed in the chest wall or above the buttocks. Electrical impulses to targeted areas in the head and neck block pain in migraine patients, who can control the strength of those currents. Its really like turning on and off a light switch for these people, says Dr. Brian Flanagan, co-director of Baylors Center for Pain Management. It isnt FDA-approved to treat migraine and is not

always covered by health insurance. Like Botox, neurostimulation has been an off-label treatment for years, Flanagan says. The treatment is advertised in the Dallas area by the Migraine Treatment Centers of America, which recommends patients to partner physicians such as Flanagan, who says the treatment has a good track record. Its not a new technology, Flanagan says. Its probably been around for 15 to 20 years, and several of the pioneers in this were based in Dallas. Before doing surgery, Flanagan requires potential patients to do a brief trial. The device is attached for a few days while portions remain outside the body. If the trial reduces pain by more than 20 to 30 percent, Flanagan says he proceeds with the implantation. Although Flanagan says the surgery is low-risk, he adds its often costly and does not completely eliminate symptoms. A 50 per-

cent reduction in pain is considered a victory. Nerve decompression Nerve decompression surgery aims for an even higher rate of pain reduction. The newest of the three procedures, this surgery is performed by plastic surgeons and is based on the idea that pain can be treated by relieving pressure on nerves caused by surrounding tissue. Before performing surgery, Dr. Jeffrey Janis, a plastic surgeon formerly with the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, uses Botox to weaken or paralyze muscles compressing nerves in the face, head and neck. Numbing blocks can also be used in certain circumstances to diagnose trigger points. Janis says this procedure allows him to pinpoint the nerve that may be caus-

ing migraine symptoms. Unlike a typical Botox treatment, this technique uses fewer injections and pinpoints specic trigger nerves. If Botox is successful in eliminating migraines, Janis discusses permanently decompressing those nerves through surgery. Dr. Bahman Guyuron, a plastic surgeon at University Hospital Case Medical Center in Cleveland, pioneered the surgery. Guyuron discovered that patients whod had the muscles between their eyebrows surgically removed during a brow lift often saw a reduction in migraine. Janis said the procedure isnt ideal for everyone. It usually isnt covered by insurance and can cost as much as $20,000. He treats only patients whose migraines have been ofciallydiagnosedbyneurologists.

So You Have Been Diagnosed with BREAST CANCER Now What?

Ask questions, lots of questions. For starters, you need to choose a surgeon. A credentialed Breast Surgeon. Anything or anyone short of that, in my view is less than comprehensive in the total care of the breast. Breast Surgery is a specialty which requires many years of training, as well as many hours of testing and study in order to meet the rigorous criteria mandated by the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBS), in order to be CERTIFIED. Certification in Breast Ultrasound, Stereotactic Needle Biopsies of the breast and proficiency in Breast Surgery Techniques are vital in an effort to offer complete, comprehensive treatment to patients. So, is your choice for a surgeon important? Does documented certification and experience matter? YOU BET IT DOES! Information is power. Information is the ability to make the best choices. In keeping with his pioneering spirit and ever increasing thirst for knowledge, Certified Breast Surgeon, Dr. Louis Blaum, Jr. of BLAUM Breast Care Specialist, LLC continues to lead the field in offering the best comprehensive treatments and technological advancements to his patients in the Wyoming Valley and surrounding areas. BRACHY THERAPY is one of those technological advancements. It is used for patients who need radiation treatment to their breast. The beauty of this treatment option is that instead of the usual 6 weeks for traditional breast radiation, with Brachy Therapy it is 5 days. Radiation is administered by the radiation doctors to the effected breast, through a balloon catheter, which is inserted in the breast by Dr. Blaum, in our office. Although not all breast cancer patients will qualify. For those patients that need a lumpectomy or partial mastectomy and meet the necessary criteria, it is an encouraging treatment option. Dr. Blaum is accepting new patients and new patient referrals. Please contact his office at 570-714-3911 should you have any breast treatment concerns, or need a second opinion. Office hours by appointment. PEACE OF MIND...VICTORY thru FAITH and COURAGE. One Patient at a Time.

Breast Cancer, words no one wants to hear, but those who have, there is a new procedure, to recieve your Radiation Therapy. The Contura MLB Brachy Therapy Catheter. Simply put it cuts the radiation therapy from 5 days a week for 6 or 7 weeks to 2 times a day for 5 days. Of course there are restrictions but if you qualify, the procedure is easy. After lumpectomy surgery the balloon catheter is inserted in the cavity. Radiation is delivered through the catheter and does not touch your skin (inside or outside). No chance of burns, or skin irritation. It takes minutes for your therapy and after 5 days the balloon catheter is removed. The incision is small and visually covered with a band aid. You can also carry on as usual, the catheter does not limit activity, nor ability to wear clothing. If you survive the lumpectomy, this procedure is far less than that. Early detection is the key, dont wait as you may miss the opportunity to try this procedure. - Jennie Henderson

From page 1C in her apartment when the phone rang. She picked up to hear a soothing voice: Shirey from Gilchrist Kids. Shirey had reached out. The social worker asked some simple questions: How are you feeling? Is anything bothering you? For Queen, talking about what was going on brought clarity to her situation and a sense of relief. Shirey visited once a week, assuring Queen that it wasnt selsh to shut out relatives sometimes. Shirey said it was normal to want to be alone. Shirey got Queen to understand that she had to accept that her baby might not survive. She coaxed Queen into picking a funeral home. Most important, she helped Queen think through a birth plan, a key part of the grief process. Such plans outline how a mother envisions labor and delivery, and list what care the baby should receive after birth. Queens plan called for doctors to do whatever was necessary to keep Kirsten alive. She also wanted to bathe, dress and hold the baby right away she knew Kirstens life might be measured in minutes. Shirey also worked with the Mohlers, encouraging them to bond with their child. Talk to the baby, she said. Rub Jennys belly and interact with him anyway you can, she urged husband John. Your time is limited, so during pregnancy, that is your time, Mohler said. That is your time to love the baby, to bond with the baby and parent while the baby is in the womb and while the baby is still alive. The slimmest of odds Jenny, now 32, had no illusions about the chances of their babys survival the condition occurs in 1 in 20,000 to 50,000 newborns, and few survive. The Mohlers had to accept that they wouldnt have long with their baby. The couple felt unconditional love for their unborn child and drew strength from their Catholic faith during the pregnancy. After nding out about their babys illness, the Mohlers had taken the afternoon off from work and made the 15-minute drive to the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Towson, Md. There they joined others in the adoration chapel, a small building connected to the main church where parishioners go throughout the day to pray. They sought comfort from God in the modest room with a few rows of simple wooden chairs and stainedglass windows, praying for their unborn child and their family. Then they went to a park near their home where they sat quietly, sometimes holding hands, sometimes crying. Those moments were the hardest the couple, married since 2009 and together ve years prior to that, had ever faced. The Mohlers hadnt planned on nding out the sex of the baby until it was born. After the diagnosis, they wanted to know. They named him Joseph Angelo Mohler Angelo because Jenny felt she was carrying an angel in her womb. They took him to concerts and to a football game at Virginia Tech, their alma mater. John frequently sang to him. Their daughter, Abby, 2, talked to her little brother through the womb. It was hard to explain to her because she was so young, Jenny said. We just told her that this was her little brother and he would soon be an angel. Dealing with death day after day is not an easy job, Shirey acknowledges. She tries not to think about her own family, including her two children. Instead, she focuses on how she can help someone elses family. Jenny Mohler entered the hospital Dec. 13. Josephs head had grown too large and doctors needed to perform an emergency Caesarean soon. Sorra started to worry that the baby would die in the womb, putting the mother at risk. Mohler had gotten frequent sonograms throughout the pregnancy to monitor the babys development. Within seconds of delivery, Jenny and her husband were greeted by a sound they werent sure they would ever hear from Joseph. He cried. Dr. Sorra felt a sense of relief. She went into the waiting room to deliver the news to the Mohlers parents. Congratulations, she said. Everything went well. You have a grandson. John, the father, swaddled Joseph and nuzzled him. He held him up so Jenny could see her son as doctors sutured the incision from her C-section. He then brought him over for Jenny to kiss on the cheek. The parents remember their baby gazing at them almost knowingly. The Mohlers took their son to another room, where their parents, young Abby, Shirey and other relatives and friends waited. Photos were taken as everyone in the room bonded with the baby. They made molds of his tiny feet and hands. Their actions stirred the emotions of the medical staff, Sorra said. It was extremely moving, Sorra said. There was so much joy and tragedy at the same time. Soon, the babys breaths became further and further apart. He became still, as if he was sleeping. A doctor came in to say Joseph had died. Joseph lived one precious hour, which the Mohlers say they will remember forever. It was very peaceful, Jenny Mohler said. We didnt even realize he had passed. Joseph was buried Dec. 22 in a baptism gown made from a recycled wedding dress they received from the nonprot group Isaiahs Promise. His casket was so small his father was able to carry it in his arms down the aisle of St. Mark Church in Catonsville, Md. I know most people would expect us to say the most difcult day was the day of his death, but to be honest, it wasnt at all, Jenny Mohler said. December 13 was an amazingly gracelled and peaceful day full of love. Because we had good care and we were prepared, the hour we spent with our son was truly one of the most beautiful and meaningful of my life. Meanwhile As Queens pregnancy progressed, her baby began to defy the doctors dire diagnosis. The bleeding in Kirstens brain stopped and the swelling went down. She went into labor at 37 weeks on Jan. 13. Doctors at Hopkins were prepared for the worst, stationing equipment nearby to help resuscitate Kirsten if that were needed. None of us knew if the baby was going to breathe at birth, recalls Dr. Renee Boss, a neonatologist. None of us knew if the baby would have a normal heart rate. We were prepared to do whatever we needed to do for the baby if it came to that. After three days of labor, Queen delivered Kirsten, who weighed 5 pounds 9 ounces and had a healthy heartbeat. She looked like her father but had Queens nose. Shes breathing, ance Keith bellowed upon hearing his baby girls cries. Shes breathing. Queen felt an overwhelming sense of happiness and relief. She came out crying, she recalls. It was the best sound ever. Even Shirey, who normally keeps her emotions under wraps around clients, couldnt hold back the tears when she arrived the next morning to see a baby who was very much alive. Kirsten stayed for ve days in the neonatal intensive care unit for monitoring. The outcome looked promising. Now 6 months old, Kirsten is home, where her two sisters and brother dote on her. She beat all odds, Queen said. She is showing them wrong every day. Kirsten is still at risk for developmental problems, but therapy has helped her considerably. Therapists also are helping her learn to crawl. Queens son Khalil Brown, 5, climbs into his parents lap as they gaze down at Kirsten. With a big grin, he said, Happy family ending.

Based on laboratory wear simulation testing, the LEGION Primary Knee System with VERILAST Technology is expected to provide wear performance sufficient for 30 years of actual use under typical conditions. The results of laboratory wear simulation testing have not been proven to predict actual wear and performance in people. A reduction in total polyethylene wear volume or wear rate alone may not result in an improved clinical outcome as wear particle size and form are also important factors in the study of the potential for wear caused by loss of calcium from bone and implant loosening. These other factors were not studied as part of the testing. There are potential risks with knee replacement surgery such as loosening, fracture, dislocation, wear and infection that may result in the need for additional surgery.

Woman who is battling many past regrets must honestly face the future
Dear Abby: I am a 65-year-old active woman who still works. I play tennis several times a week and have a loving relationship with my kids. I know with certainty that I have many good things in my life. However, since my sister died last year, I have been having second thoughts about a lot of the decisions I have made over the years especially regarding relationships and my choice of jobs. I realize now that more than a few of my decisions were based on low self-esteem, although I dont come across that way. Im feeling depressed and lonely, and its hard to be posi-

tive. I feel like my world is shrinking, and I dont know how to get back on track and be a positive and happy person again. As it is, Im faking it with my children, and my friends have no idea how I really feel. How do I improve my life at this late stage? Depressed in San Diego Dear Depressed: One way would be to be more honest with your friends and fake it less. If they are good friends, theyll be willing to listen and give you an honest perspective or the benefit of their life

experience. Thats what friends do for each other. You are lucky to be vital and active, because it means your world doesnt have to shrink any more than you want it to. Because you say youre lonely, perhaps its time to consider enlarging your circle of acquaintances. The loss of your sister is probably what started your re-evaluation of your life and choices, and thats normal. But please remember that regret is the cancer of life. You cant change the past, and you mustnt allow it to cloud your future. While you may be having second thoughts about choices you made when you were younger, the lessons you learned from them have made you the person you are today.

Dear Abby: I think our culture is severely lacking when we dont teach our children how to politely and nonaggressively stand up for themselves when the need arises. People suffer in all sorts of relationships work, family, friends because theyre afraid of confrontation. Raising a subject that may be embarrassing and risking anger-ing someone isnt fun, but its COMMUNICATION. If you have a problem, large or small, address it in private with the individual. And if someone tries to talk to you about something youd rather not hear, be an adult, listen and respond civilly instead of reacting childishly. We teach children to respect authority, be kind to others and be leaders but we dont teach them

healthy confrontation, which is something we all encounter in our lives. Talking It Out in Indiana Dear Talking It Out: I agree with you. The kind of communication youre describing is a skill. It requires not only a strong ego on the part of the confronter, but also tact and diplomacy. And the confrontee needs to have the ability to listen without responding with hostility to what is being said.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You like to have a detailed understanding about all thats in your environment, and today youll connect with someone who can help you broaden your knowledge. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Have a talk with your thoughts. The unsupportive ones have been taking up too much real estate in your brain. Ask for all supportive notions to come forward. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It does no good to dwell on your dissatisfaction with the way things are. An ailing situation can and will get better once you land on a vision of the way you want it to be. Think about what a longrange solution would look like. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Something you understand, dear crab, is that the waves are not influenced by the wishes of man. They are obedient only to the pull of the moon. Likewise, youll respond to a higher force. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may suddenly realize that your situation calls for a different kind of energy than the kind youve been applying to it. Youll cause a shift by demonstrating a different mood and tone. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Today its as futile to resist a natural attraction as it is to defy a physical force like gravity. Besides, maybe theres a good reason you want what you want. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You dont have many regrets, because you realize that you can, at any point, make a new choice. Even if you cant take on a new venture at this time, its never too late to be who you want to be. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Recognize that even though your feelings are real, they may not pertain to the current situation. Triggers from the past may still be influencing your reaction to the present. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Youll be excellent at doing whats right in front of you. If its next to you or behind you, youre going to assume someone else is handling it or that its already been dealt with. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Today is a bit of a travesty, but dont worry. The commonly mistaken definition of travesty an unfortunate event will not apply. Its the real meaning a false or distorted representation that will apply. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Do your best is a cliche at risk of losing real meaning if left unexamined. How do you do your best? You apply yourself, and all you have and know, with full respect and attention to the task at hand. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What you put your money into is the least of your investments. Your time and attention are far more precious than money, and your loved ones know this. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Aug. 27). Youll get to know an interesting new someone, and this changes the flow of your year. September brings funding for an important goal. Youll be involved with a special event in November and will be credited with its success. January is your chance at a high position. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 33, 25, 48 and 15.
