On this date two years ago,
residents along the rising
Susquehanna River were col-
lectively braced in a state of
fear and anxiety.
In the morning they learned
they were about to be dealt a
river almost as high as it was
in the devastating 1972 Agnes
Flood, which caused $1.038
billion in damage.
By the afternoon, they were
informed the river crest was
arriving sooner and upped to
41 feet, exceeding the 40.91-
foot Agnes.
While 65,000 residents pro-
tected by the Wyoming Valley
Levee evacuated to shel-
ters, hotels and the homes of
friends and family on higher
ground throughout the day,
those in properties with no
levees scrambled to elevate
and grab what they could.
Some in West Pittston,
Plains Township, Exeter and
other areas lost all belongings
because they already had sev-
eral feet of water gushing into
their structures by the morn-
With the memories of Agnes
still fresh in many minds, resi-
dents and ofcials were on
pins and needles waiting to
see if the levee would stay
strong and be high enough.
Cracks and boils in the levee
and leaks in Market Street
ood gates increased tension
throughout the day.
The levee was designed to
hold 41 feet, but it held thanks
to an additional three-foot top
board added to handle waves
and debris.
Ofcials didnt learn until
the next day that a faulty ood
gauge threw off readings, and
the river was actually cresting
at a new record 42.66 feet.

VATICAN CITY Tens of thousands of people
answered Pope Francis call for a four-hour Syria peace
vigil in St. Peters Square late Saturday, joining Christians
and non-Christians alike in similar vigils around the world.
About 70,000 people, according to an estimate by the
Vatican, were present at the start of the vigil. It was believed
to be one of the largest rallies in the West against proposed
U.S.-led military action against the Syrian regime follow-
ing the Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack near Damascus.
Francis spent most of the vigil in silent prayer, but during
his speech he issued a heartfelt plea for peace, denouncing
those who are captivated by the idols of dominion and
power and destroy Gods creation through war.
This evening, I ask the Lord that we Christians, and
our brothers and sisters of other religions and every man
and woman of good will, cry out forcefully: Violence and
war are never the way to peace!

WASHINGTON Congress returns to work facing
a momentous vote on whether the United States should
attack Syria, a question that overshadows a crowded and
contentious agenda of budget ghts, health care, farm pol-
icy and possible limits on the governments surveillance of
millions of Americans.
Back Monday after a ve-week break, many lawmakers
stand as a major obstacle to President Barack Obamas
promised strikes against Syria amid fears of U.S. involve-
ment in an extended Mideast war and public fatigue after
more than a decade of conicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Obama insists the world must act. He blames Syrian
President Bashar Assad for gassing his own people, killing
1,429 civilians, including 426 children. The Syrian govern-
ment has denied responsibility for the Aug. 21 chemical
weapons attack outside Damascus, and blames rebels.

DALLAS TWP. While some col-
lege students spent summer soaking
up some rays, interning or traveling,
Misericordia University senior Amelia
Poplawski was doing all three.
The Plains Township resident, and
2010 Coughlin High School graduate,
was one of 16 students to participate in
an elite National Science Foundation
internship at the University of
Californias Irvine campus.
The biochemistry major spoke gid-
dily as she detailed her summer, spent
using the Gaussian computational
chemistry program to build virtual
molecules and compounds, and per-
forming calculations on energy, fre-
quency and optimizing the structure.
That might be a hard phrase for non-
science types to say, much less com-
prehend, but her enthusiasm makes it
sound fun.
Computational chemistry allows
you to investigate properties of a com-
pound that could not be done in a wet
laboratory because they are too unsta-
ble, she said. The more theoretical
information we compile on a molecule,
the more it helps us determine the
mechanism behind the molecule and
what makes it work.
The daughter of Denise and Richard
Poplawski, Amelia traces her love of
science back to her days at Coughlin
High School. Specically she cited
biology teacher Joan Blaum for ignit-
ing her interest in biology during her
freshman year and then Advanced
Placement chemistry teacher Michael
Cooney for sparking her appreciation
of chemistry.
Amelia is one of those students you
never forget one who makes you
happy to be a teacher, said Blaum,
now retired. Even as a freshman, she
was an exceptional student, a hard
worker. She is denitely one of the
most dedicated students I ever had.
Once Poplawski got to Misericordia,
her interests in multiple branches
of science were able to be combined
when she opted to major in biochem-
istry. Its a eld in which women have
made increasing strides.
Poplawski said she gets puzzled
looks when she tells some people her
major, but she said its a sign of the
times and notes she will graduate with
a math minor, too.
But general science is one thing,
computational chemistry is another.
Poplawski said thanks to technol-
ogy and medical breakthroughs over
the past generation, computer-based
research is quickly becoming a norm
in the eld and, while not as glamor-
ous as working with microscopes or
vials, it is just as important.
Anna Fedor, an assistant professor
of chemistry at Misericordia, traced
Poplawskis interest in pursuing
research in computational chemistry,
in part, to her time in one of the uni-
versitys physical chemistry classes.
By having applied for and been
accepted to what Fedor called one of
the elite internships in the nation,
Poplawski has shown the type of
research and education being undertak-
en at Misericordia, the professor said.
Poplawski said the research shes
doing combines my curiosity and pas-
sion of knowledge and science coupled
with my compassion toward people.
This is the perfect marriage.
The idea that she could be part of
the cutting-edge of medical research,
though shes only 21, makes all the
hours in the lab worth it.
It may take decades of research, but
the idea of nding a biochemical reac-
tion related to diseases such as cancer
or Alzheimers is something I hope to
see in my lifetime, Poplawski said. If
it happens, I know that my time in the
lab will have been well spent.

Barre paramedic said the city
fabricated a disciplinary hear-
ing against him in retaliation
for his suing to expose what he
considers insider trading in the

Tyler Hammond led a sec-
ond lawsuit Friday in U.S.
Middle District Court, saying
the actions of the city and Mayor
Tom Leighton are meant to deter
him from exercising his constitu-
tional right to access the courts
and engage in free speech.
Hammond and his wife
Antonia sued the city in 2009,
alleging the mayor, who also is
a real estate agent, had access to
and free use of condential city
information about properties in
Wilkes-Barre, including the for-
mer Old River Road Bakery.
The city approved and later
terminated a deal to sell the
property to Leo A. Glodzik III,
who had the exclusive towing
contract with Wilkes-Barre until
theft charges were led against
him in May. The property was
sold, and Harrolds Pharmacy

suit said.
Hammond got short notice of
his disciplinary hearing sched-
uled for 10 a.m. Friday, a time
when he would be sleeping
because he worked the previous
midnight shift, according to the
The reason for the hearing,
the suit alleges, was the mayors
incorrect belief that Hammond
created a satirical website of
Even if Hammond created
the site, it was protected speech
under the Constitution since any
member of the public can form
opinions, create and post infor-
mation on a public ofcial and

covered by the publics desire to
self-govern and engage in democ-
racy, the lawsuit stated.
The hearing was scheduled
to conict with depositions
Hammonds attorney, Cynthia

sonnel, the suit said.

Early Saturday, there were
unsettling noises coming from
the Pittston City Cemetery.
No, this isnt the beginning
of a ghost story. The noises
emanated from lawn mowers,
weed trimmers and chainsaws
as more than 50 volunteers
aided in the rst of three cem-
etery cleanups.
Weeds, trees, vines, grass
and downed limbs have over-
taken parts of the cemetery,
prompting Pittston native
Ron Faraday, a member of the
Greater Pittston Historical
Society, to organize this years
The deplorable condition
of the Pittston City Cemetery
was recently brought to our
attention and weve decided to
do all we can to get the ceme-
tery back into shape, Faraday
said. There are some graves
that are literally in the woods.
Animals have burrowed down
right near some headstones.
The rst weekend cleanup
will continue today at 9 a.m.,
and volunteers can donate as
little as an hour or work the
entire day. Three additional
volunteer work weekends are
planned: Oct. 5-6, Nov. 9-10
and Dec. 7-8.
Faraday made a map for the
volunteers and divided the
cemetery into eight sections:
the North corner, the South
corner, the Hill section, the
Jewish section, the Bank, the
Hewitt, Jones and Holvey sec-
tions, the latter named after
large families whose relatives
are buried there. The goal is to
eventually have the historical
society provide walking tours
of the cemetery with re-enac-
tors in costume, Faraday said.
Despite the name, the
graveyard is not owned by the
citys government. Its owned
by the Pittston Cemetery
Association, a group that
has dwindled to a handful of
members. The cemetery was
opened in the mid-1800s by
members of the Odd Fellows
Society and has Civil War
veterans buried there. Plots
are still available in the newer
section, but the older section
is in disarray.
Joan Sylvester, and her
son, Seth, and Donna Yentz
were cutting grass and rak-
ing leaves and debris in the
Holvey section.
My brother is buried
here, Yentz said. Weve been
coming here for years, and its
just a mess. It needed some
care. But in just a half day,
you could see the difference
In addition to muscle
power, lawn equipment is
needed. Workers are asked, if
they can, to bring weed trim-
mers. Also needed are chain-
saws, lawn mowers, rakes and
Members of the nearby
American Legion Post 477
hosted a cookout lunch for
the volunteers. Pittston
Councilmen Joe McLean said
the city crews volunteered
and are using four city pick-
ups, a dump truck and back-
Its gratifying to see all
these volunteers come out,
McLean said. They grabbed
their weed whackers and lawn
mowers and put them to good
use. Were all working toward
a common goal. Its really a
great community effort.
Acontingent fromthe Naval
Reserve stations in Avoca and
the Lehigh Valley also helped.
The hilly 50-acre cemetery
sits on the corner of Swallow
and Vine streets, across from
West Park. Some notable
residents buried there are
World War I veteran Albert
West, former Pittston Mayor
John J. Allardyce, three vic-
tims of the Avondale mining
disaster in Plymouth in 1869
and 15 victims of the Eagle
Shaft Disaster in the Pittston
Junction in 1871.

Lillian and Butch James loved Harleys. So their daughter honored their memory with a last ride
Hurysh wanted her parents to get
one last ride through town. Hurysh,
part of a family of motorcycle enthu-
siasts, honored her parents memory
Saturday with a one-of-a-kind funeral
Huryshs mother, Lillian James,
66, died in May and her father Butch
James, 65, passed a few weeks ago,
both of natural causes. The two spent
many of the best moments of their
lives together on a Harley-Davidson
motorcycle, Hurysh said.
Lehman Funeral Home on Hazle
Street, Wilkes-Barre, began offering a
motorcycle-pulled hearse service this
summer for the families it serves.
Huryshs parents cremains were fas-
tened inside the custom-built hearse
and pulled by a 2013 Harley-Davidson
Road King trike along some of their
frequented roads.
The trike pulls the casket aboard a
fth-wheel trailer. Funeral Director
Pat Lehman wanted the ensemble
to resemble a Victorian horse-drawn
hearse like those pulled a century ago.
Its trimmed with brushed, silver-
colored lanterns and rolls on tall
wheels. It was built by Tombstone
Hearse Co. in Bedford County to
match the Lehmans specications.
The side walls are made of glass with
ornate trim. Lehman said it was built
with windows with veterans in mind
to display the American ag draped
over the casket.
Maybe they were a veteran or a
rst-responder, or maybe dad was
just not a Cadillac guy, Lehman said.
We just had this built to offer it to
our families at no additional charge
just another way to honor their loved
The ride was very special for
Hurysh, who rode with her husband,
something she never does. Theres
nothing like a road trip, riding as a
pack with her family, she said. Her
rst bike was a Suzuki, a good ride for
a student, but she longed for the sig-
nature rumble of a Harley-Davidson
the kind her parents always rode.
She remembers a Christmas when
she was a child and her dad parked
the motorcycle in the living room, a
common practice for riders who didnt
have a warm place to store and work
on their bikes in winter. When you
didnt have a garage, that bike came in
the house, she said.
She remembers decorating his bike
along the Christmas tree. Butch left
his last motorcycle, a 1990 Harley-
Davidson Softail, to Hurysh.
I havent ridden it yet, Hurysh
said. He would ip if nobody rode it.
Theyre not made to sit.

Argentina Tokyo was
awarded the 2020 Olympics
on Saturday, capitalizing on
its reputation as a safe pair
of hands and defying con-
cerns about the Fukushima
nuclear crisis.
Tokyo defeated Istanbul
60-36 in the nal round of
secret voting Saturday by
the International Olympic
Committee. Madrid was
eliminated earlier after an
initial tie with Istanbul.
Tokyo, which hosted the
1964 Olympics, billed itself
as the safe and reliable choice
at a time of global political
and economic uncertainty.
Tokyo can be trusted to
be the safe pair of hands
and much more, bid leader
and IOC member Tsunekazu
Takeda said in the nal pre-
sentation. Our case today
is simple. Vote for Tokyo
and you vote for guaranteed
delivery. Tokyo is the right
partner at the right time.
Tokyo had been on the
defensive in the nal days
of the campaign because of
mounting concerns over the
leak of radioactive water
from the tsunami-crippled
Fukushima nuclear plant.
In the nal presentation
before the vote, Japanese
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe
gave the IOC assurances that
the Fukushima leak was not
a threat to Tokyo and took
personal responsibility for
keeping the games safe.
Let me assure you the sit-
uation is under control, Abe
said. It has never done and
will never do any damage to
Abe gave further assuranc-
es when pressed on the issue
by Norwegian IOC member
Gerhard Heiberg.
It poses no problem
whatsoever, Abe said in
Japanese, adding that the
contamination was limited
to a small area and had been
completely blocked.
There are no health relat-
ed problems until now, nor
will there be in the future,
he said. I make the state-
ment to you in the most
emphatic and unequivocal
Tokyo Electric Power Co.,
Fukushimas operator, has
acknowledged that tons of
radioactive water has been
seeping into the Pacic from
the plant for more than two
years after the March 2011
earthquake and tsunami led
to meltdowns at three of its
reactors. Recent leaks from
tanks storing radioactive
water used to cool the reac-
tors have added to fears that
the amount of contaminated
water is getting out of hand.

The U.S. Attorneys ofce said 27-year-
old Hicham Ramzi Nahra of Canada, and

Restaurant blast
leaves 15 dead
Somali militants attacked a restau-
rant near Mogadishus seat of govern-
ment for the second time in less than a
year on Saturday, detonating two large
blasts that killed at least 15 people and
wounded nearly two dozen, police said.
Ofcials said the attack included a car
bomb blast and a suicide bomber who
entered The Village eatery. The second
blast was caused by a suicide bomber
posing as a rst responder after the car
bomb exploded, the African Union mili-
tary force in Somalia said in a statement.
Capt. Ali Hussein, a senior police of-
cial, put the death toll at 15 and said at
least 20 had been wounded in the blasts.
3 women burned
at food festival
Three women serving Malaysian cui-
sine were burned Saturday in a cooking
accident at a street festival in eastern
The women were working in a food
tent at VegFest in Bethlehem when a
re broke out, setting the tent ablaze.
Witnesses described hearing what
sounded like a gunshot before seeing
ames shoot 12 feet into the air.
We saw a woman go running by. She
had ames on her shirt, Ty Carpenter,
who was stafng the beer tent on the
opposite side of the food court, told The
Express-Times of Easton.
The women were taken to a burn
center for treatment of rst- and second-
degree burns.
Lobstermen cope
with shutdown
Connecticut lobstermen have survived
storms and struggled with poor prices,
die-offs and a prolonged plunge in the
population that they count on for a liveli-
hood. Now the dwindling ranks of aging,
full-time lobstermen are removing their
traps to comply with the rst seasonal
shutdown on Long Island Sound.
The closure, which begins today and
lasts through Nov. 28, aims to reduce the
total lobster harvest by 10 percent this
year to give the sounds depleted lobster
population a chance to rebuild. Amid
skepticism it will reverse their fortunes,
lobstermen are tightening their belts,
shifting to other shing, laying off crews,
thinking about jobs on shore and won-
dering how theyll survive..
The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries
Commission required New York and
Connecticut to take steps to reduce
the total lobster harvest by 10 percent
in 2013. The timing was requested by
lobstermen to coincide with a drop in
wholesale prices to minimize the harm.

CAIRO Egyptian helicop-
ter gunships and tanks pounded
suspected hideouts of Islamic
militants in the northern Sinai
Peninsula on Saturday, in what
ofcials described as a major new
offensive in the insurgent strong-
hold. Residents who witnessed
winding columns of trucks and
armored vehicles pour into the area
said the operation was one of the
largest there in years.
Meanwhile, the countrys pros-
ecutor general led new charg-
es against deposed President
Mohammed Morsi, accusing him
of insulting the judiciary a crime
in Egypt punishable by up to six
months imprisonment.
A security ofcial said dozens
of insurgent suspects were killed
and wounded in the Sinai offen-
sive, which comes two days after
a failed suicide bombing target-
ing the countrys top policeman
in Cairo. Smoke could be seen ris-
ing from the towns of Rafah and
Sheikh Zuweyid, and troops set up
a cordon to prevent militants from
escaping as others combed the
area, he said.
The northern Sinai, which
adjoins Israel and the Palestinian
Gaza Strip, has long been a haven
for militants including al-Qaida-
inspired groups. Attacks have
spiked in the area since Morsis July
3 ouster, prompting the latest army
Egypts ofcial news agency
MENA reported that six military
helicopters were used to strike
weapons caches and militants
vehicles in seven villages, as part of
what it described as a campaign to
wipe out terrorist hideouts.
The army had jammed some
communications in the area, and
security forces took control of two
telephone exchanges in order to
disrupt communications between
suspected militants, it added.
The security ofcial also said
troops had arrested an unidentied
number of suspected militants but
others managed to escape to moun-
tainous areas in central Sinai.
In the past, militants used a
vast network of underground tun-
nels linking Egypt with Gaza as
a way to escape security crack-
downs. However, over the past two
months, the military has destroyed
more than 80 percent of them,
stemming the ow of weapons,
militants and goods into Gaza, a

ing a war on terrorism against

throw and government assaults on

But the lADEE spacecraft quickly ran into equipment trouble
NASAs newest robotic explorer
rocketed into space late Friday in an
unprecedented moonshot fromVirginia
that dazzled sky watchers along the
East Coast.
But the LADEE spacecraft quickly
ran into equipment trouble, and while
NASA assured everyone early Saturday
that the lunar probe was safe and on
a perfect track for the moon, ofcials
acknowledged the problem needs to
be resolved in the next two to three
S. Peter Worden, director of NASAs
Ames Research Center in California,
which developed the spacecraft, told
reporters hes condent everything
will be working properly in the next
few days.
LADEEs reaction wheels were
turned on to orient and stabilize the
spacecraft, which was spinning too fast
after it separated from the nal rocket
stage, Worden said. But the computer
automatically shut the wheels down,
apparently because of excess current.
He speculated the wheels might have
been running a little fast.
Worden stressed there is no rush to
get these bugs ironed out.
The LADEE spacecraft, which
is charged with studying the lunar
atmosphere and dust, soared aboard
an unmanned Minotaur rocket a lit-
tle before midnight from Virginias
Eastern Shore.
Godspeed on your journey to the
moon, LADEE, Launch Control
said. Flight controllers applauded and
exchanged high-ves following the suc-
cessful launch. We are headed to the
moon! NASA said in a tweet.
It was a change of venue for NASA,
which normally launches moon mis-
sions from Cape Canaveral, Fla. But
it provided a rare light show along the
East Coast for those blessed with clear
NASA urged sky watchers to share
their launch pictures through the web-
site Flickr, and the photos and sighting
reports quickly poured in from New
York City, Boston, Washington, D.C.,
Baltimore, New Jersey, Rhode Island,
eastern Pennsylvania and Virginia,
among other places.
The Lunar Atmosphere and Dust
Environment Explorer or LADEE, pro-
nounced LA-dee, is taking a round-
about path to the moon, making three
huge laps around Earth before getting
close enough to pop into lunar orbit.
Unlike the quick three-day Apollo
ights to the moon, LADEE will need
a full month to reach Earths closest
neighbor. An Air Force Minotaur V
rocket, built by Orbital Sciences Corp.,
provided the ride from NASAs Wallops
Flight Facility.
LADEE, which is the size of a small
car, is expected to reach the moon on
Oct. 6.

Sept. 11 museum nears completion
NEW YORK Far below
the earth where the twin tow-
ers once stood, a cavernous
museum on hallowed ground
is nally nearing completion.
Amid the construction
machinery and the dust, pow-
erful artifacts of death and
destruction have assumed
their nal resting places
inside the National September
11 Memorial & Museum.
A vast space that travels
down to the bedrock upon
which the towers were built,
the museum winds its way
deeper and deeper under-
ground, taking visitors on a
journey to the very bottom.
Already on display are sev-
eral pieces of mangled steel
and metal recovered from the
World Trade Center towers,
each one telling a different
story of the terror attacks that
killed nearly 3,000 people.
The rst relics that visitors
will see are two massive piec-
es of structural steel that rose
from the base of the North
Tower. Now the rusty red col-
umns soar above ground into
the sunlit glass atrium that
encloses the entrance to the
Down a long ramp, visitors
will peer down to glimpse the
last piece of steel removed
from ground zero in 2002,
which sits inside a gaping
silvery chamber that drops to
the lowest level of the muse-
Further down the ramp, vis-
itors will discover a mangled
and twisted piece of steel that
Daniels calls impact steel.
Thats because this piece of
the building was actually
destroyed by the impact of
Flight 11 slamming into the
North Tower.
You can see how, at the
bottom, the columns are bent
back, Daniels said. Thats
because Flight 11s nose,
when it pierced the building,
it bent steel like that.

Ship wreck surrenders a pirates booty
Dive discovers
treasure-laden ship
might hold as many as
400,000 coins
Associated Press
BOSTON Fog was
swallowing his ships bow,
the winds were picking
up and undersea explorer
Barry Clifford gured he
needed to leave within an
hour to beat the weather
back to port.
It was time enough, he
decided, for a nal dive of
the season over the wreck
of the treasure-laden pirate
ship, Whydah, off Cape
That Sept. 1 dive at a
spot Clifford had never
explored before uncov-
ered proof that a stagger-
ing amount of undiscov-
ered riches as many as
400,000 coins might be
found there.
Instead of packing up for
the year, Clifford is plan-
ning another trip to the
Whydah, the only authen-
ticated pirate ship wreck in
U.S. waters.
I can hardly wait, he
The Whydah was built
as a slave ship in 1716 and
captured in February 1717
by pirate captain Black
Sam Bellamy. Just two
months later, it sank in a
ferocious storm a quarter
mile off Welleet, Mass.,
killing Bellamy and all but
two of the 145 other men
on board and taking down
the plunder from 50 ves-
sels Bellamy raided.
Clifford located the
Whydah site in 1984 and
has since documented
200,000 artifacts, includ-
ing gold, guns and even
the leg of a young boy who
took up with the crew. He
only recently got indica-
tions there may be far
more coins than the rough-
ly 12,000 hes already doc-
Just before his death in
April, the Whydah projects
late historian, Ken Kinkor,
uncovered a Colonial-era
document indicating that
in the weeks before the
Whydah sank, Bellamy
raided two vessels bound
for Jamaica. It is said
that in those vessels were
400,000 pieces of 8/8, it
The 8/8 indicates one
ounce, the weight of the
largest coin made at that
time, Clifford said.
Nowwe knowtheres an
additional 400,000 coins
out there somewhere, he
The nal dive may
have provided a big hint
at where. Diver Rocco
Paccione said he had low
expectations when Clifford
excavated a pit about 35
feet below the surface and
sent him down. But his
metal detector immediate-
ly came alive with positive,
or hot, readings.
This pit was pretty
much hot all the way
through, he said.
The most signicant
artifact brought up by
Paccione was an odd-
shape concretion, sort of
a rocky mass that forms
when chemical reactions
with seawater bind metals
X-rays this week
revealed coin-shaped mass-
es, including some that
appear to be stacked as
if they were kept in bags,
which is how a surviving
Whydah pirate testied
that the crewmen stored
their riches.
Clifford doesnt sell
Whydah treasures and said
he would never sell the
coins individually because
he sees them as histori-
cal artifacts, not com-
modities. But he has given
coins away as mementos.
Two have been sold at the
Daniel Frank Sedwick LLC
auction house in Florida,
with the highest going for
about $11,400. The price
per Whydah coin would
plummet if tens of thou-
sands hit the market, but a
retail price of $1,000 each
is a reasonable guess, said
Augi Garcia, manager at
the auction.
Ed Rodley, who studied
Whydah artifacts during
graduate studies in archae-
ology at the University of
Massachusetts Boston,
said the Whydah site
keeps producing treasure
decades after its discovery
partly because its so tough
to work.

War II-era vessel.

In July 1942, about two
months after Japan invaded
the Aleutian Islands, a U.S.
submarine on patrol near
Kiska attacked and dis-
abled the armed Japanese
merchant ship Kano Maru.
But the USS Grunion never
An account by the Kano
Marus military command-
er states that the Grunion
sank after an 80 mm shell
hit near its conning tower.
He continued, We saw the

But many question
whether that anti-aircraft
shell would have sunk the
sub. A malfunctioning tor-
pedo or other equipment
problems are suspected,
but why the Grunion was
lost might never be known
with certainty.
For 64 years it lay lost
with 70 men, including
the captain, Lt. Cmdr.
Mannert Jim Abele.
After years of searching
for information about their
father, Boston Scientic

the bottom. The second,

John Abele and Mary
Bentz, a crewmans niece,
will talk about the search
Wednesday at the National
World War II Museum.
Its a story of far-ung
collaboration and wild
improbabilities, Abele said.
What Abele calls the
improbables include nd-
ing a Japanese researcher
through a brothers sons
girlfriends boss; locat-
ing the boats bell in the
Greenville, Miss., welcome
center where its still
displayed; and contacting
the mother and sons of a
Japanese captain whose
submarine chaser was
sunk by the Grunion before
the sub attacked the Kano
Abeles brothers, Bruce
and Brad, were 14 and
9 years old when the
Grunion sank. John Abele
was 5, and barely remem-
bers him. He was away a
lot of the time. Thats the
Navy, he said. I remem-
ber I got pennies for brush-
ing my teeth.
He said Brad Abele
began research in the
1990s, talking to retired
Navy men who had known
their father or were in the
14-month campaign to
recover Attu and Kiska
islands from the Japanese. THE TIMES LEADER Sunday, September 8, 2013 PAGE 7A

how sturdy is the U.S. job
Thats the key question
the Federal Reserve will
face when it decides later
this month whether to
reduce its economic stimu-
The answer depends on
where you look.
The economy has added
jobs for 35 consecutive
months. Unemployment
has reached a 4-year low
of 7.3 percent. Layoffs are
Yet other barometers
of the job market point to
chronic weakness:
The pace of hiring
remains tepid. Job growth
is concentrated in lower-
paying industries. The
economy is 1.9 million jobs
shy of its pre-recession level
and thats not counting
the additional jobs needed
to meet population growth.
Nearly 4.3 million people
have been unemployed at
least six months.
Whats more, employers
have little incentive to raise
pay. Many unhappy employ-
ees have nowhere else to go.
Still, when it meets Sept.
17-18, the Fed is expected
to reduce its $85 billion a
month in bond purchases
by perhaps $10 billion. Its
purchases have helped keep
home-loan and other bor-
rowing rates low to try to
encourage consumers and
businesses to borrow and
spend more.
Heres a look at the job
markets vital signs as the
Feds decision nears:
The unemployment
rate slid in August to 7.3
percent, its lowest level
since December 2008.
Unemployment had peaked
in October 2009 at 10 per-
cent and has since fallen
more or less steadily. Since
then, the number of people
who say they have jobs has
risen by 5.7 million. And
the number of those who
say theyre unemployed has
dropped by nearly 4.1 mil-
Thats the good news
behind the tumbling unem-
ployment rate.
But the rate has been fall-
ing, in part, for a bad rea-
son: People are dropping
out of the labor force. Once
people without a job stop
looking for one, the gov-
ernment no longer counts
them as unemployed.
Job creation
Since the Great
Recession ofcially ended
in June 2009, the American
economy has added nearly
5.6 million jobs. Yet that
hasnt been nearly enough
to ll the hole left by the
recession. The United
States still has 1.9 million
fewer jobs than the 138
million it had when the
recession ofcially began in
December 2007.
Low-quality jobs
The jobs the economy is
generating this year have
tended to be low-paying,
part-time or both. More
than 654,000 or 45 per-
cent of the 1.44 million
jobs added this year come
from three generally low-
paying industries: depart-
ment stores andother retail-
ers; hotels and restaurants;
and temporary services.
Layoffs and hiring
The American labor
market is divided between
haves and have-nots. If you
have a job, your position is
safer than its been in years.
If you dont have one and
arent willing to settle for
lower-wage work, the job
search can be brutal.
Whats ailing the US job market? It depends on where you look

HARRISBURG Its been more
than two months since a proposal
to raise billions to improve roads,
repair bridges and support mass
transit stalled amid the urry of
deal making that accompanies the
Pennsylvania Legislatures annual
budget debate.
Since then, the Transportation
Department announced new weight
restrictions on about 1,000 state
and local bridges, and the Senate
Transportation Committee has held
a series of hearings around the state
to warn of the dangers of inaction
on transportation infrastructure.
Lawmakers will return to the
Capitol from their summer break in
two weeks, with the prospects of a
deal as murky as ever.
A $2.5 billion-a-year plan passed
the Senate 45-5, while a $2 billion
House proposal got out of commit-
tee but has not had a oor vote.
The big question this fall is what
will happen in the House, where s-
cal conservatives who dominate the
Republican majority are determined
to avoid tax increases. The House
Transportation Committees chair-
man, Dick Hess, died on Friday,
adding uncertainty amid the fund-
ing debate.
PennDOTSecretary Barry Schoch
said that major sticking points are
the proper level of spending and
how much money will be earmarked
for mass transit.
If were going to have success on
this and get it through both cham-
bers, were going to have to iron out
those issues, Schoch said.
House Republicans plan to draft
a new approach this fall, although a
spokesman would not say how much
it will cost.
The one thing that truly seems to
have been missing from this entire
transportation funding debate is
the effect on the people paying for
it, said House GOP spokesman
Steve Miskin. Were thinking about
dealing with the actual and critical
needs, not necessarily an industry
wish list. THE TIMES LEADER NEWS Sunday, September 8, 2013 PAGE 11A

Debate over coal heats up in southwestern Pa.
President is such a
staunch advocate for
natural gas, some say
he has declared a war
on coal.
(Washington) Observer-Reporter
Coal accounts for more
than one-third of national
electricity generation,
more than any other ener-
gy source. It also is a polar-
izing subject, staunchly
defended on one side, con-
demned on the other.
Consider the stances
of Dan Kane and Patrick
Coal can have a good
future if we use our heads,
said Kane, international
secretary-treasurer of the
United Mine Workers of
America. It remains our
most abundant resource
and has been a stable
resource in this country
for over 100 years. Its still
one of our greatest sources
of electricity.
Grenter has a different
perspective. He is execu-
tive director of the Center
for Coaleld Justice, a
watchdog organization in
downtown Washington
that addresses environ-
mental issues related to
fossil fuel extraction.
Clean coal is a myth.
It does not exist, he
said. Coal companies say
extracting coal is good for
all of us. Again, I think
thats a myth.
A heating source for
more than two centuries,
coal continues to burn
brightly in the region, in
the nation and around
the world. But because
of increasingly stringent
environmental regula-
tions, the high cost of
implementing emissions
controls at older plants,
and the rapid development
of the shale gas industry,
the ame is ickering a
Just a fewyears ago, coal
generated about 45 per-
cent of U.S. energy, well
ahead of other sources. Its
now 37 percent. Natural
gas with environmental
issues less extreme than
coal is at 30 percent
and closing rapidly.
Yet, despite a reputation
darker than a clump of the
mineral substance itself,
coal remains a vital source
of employment and tax
revenue in Greene County
and, to a lesser extent,
Washington County.
Our regionis the largest
coal-producing area in the
state, said state Sen. Tim
Solobay, D-Canonsburg.
A lot of jobs are affected,
directly and indirectly, by
what happens with the
Pennsylvania, in 2011,
was the fourth-largest
coal-producing state with
57.4 million short tons,
according to an Ernst &
Young analysis commis-
sioned by the National
Mining Association. That
was slightly more than
half of what third-place
Kentucky (103.3 million)
West Virginia was sec-
ond (131.2 million), amaz-
ingly less than one-third
of front-running Wyoming
(437.8 million).
So, yes, a lot of jobs
within a 90-minute drive
of downtown Washington
will be affected by what
transpires in the world of
energy generation. And
those positions would not
only be in the coalelds.
Some companies
have closed or plan to
close coal-red power
plants. FirstEnergy Corp.
announced in July that it
plans to shut two in the
area Oct. 9, impacting
380 employees: Mitchell
Power Station in Union
Township and Hatelds
Ferry Power Station in
Monongahela Township,
near Carmichaels.
Hatelds Ferry is
in peril even though
Allegheny Power,
FirstEnergys predeces-
sor, invested $650 million
there to install scrubbers
to remove sulfur dioxide
and mercury from the
emissions. The scrubbers
went online in late 2009.
Tougher government regu-
lations on emissions are
anticipated, which would
require further technology
at a greater corporate cost.
President Barack
Obama is such a staunch
advocate for natural gas
that a number of observers
say he has declared a war
on coal.
Burning coal cleanly has
been a longtime issue. The
process today is as clean
as the new technologies
allow, but it is not a per-
fect process.
Theres no question
coal is getting a lot of
regulatory attention from
the (U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency), said
Steve Winberg, vice presi-
dent of research and devel-
opment for Consol Energy
Inc., the largest diversi-
ed energy producer in
the Appalachian Basin.
Consol is prominent in the
natural gas industry, work-
ing in the Marcellus and
Utica shales, and operates
the worlds largest under-
ground coal mine, Bailey
Mine in Greene County.
While touring the
National Energy and
Technology Laboratory
in Morgantown, W.Va.,
Energy Secretary Ernest
Moniz said last month
that development of new
technology for carbon
storage and sequestration
probably will be the key to
ensuring coals future.
Carbon capture tech-
nology is considered vital
to reducing greenhouse
gas released by coal-red
power plants.
Sequestration is a new,
expensive technology that
separates carbon from
emissions and stores it
deep beneath the Earths
I think its critical for
this country to continue to
improve clean initiatives,
like carbon capture and
sequestration, and develop
other technologies that
can help the environment
and still leave coal in the
mix in our economy, said
Kane, a former miner who
works at the UMWA head-
quarters in Triangle, Va.,
but lives in Ebensburg,
Cambria County.
The importance of new
technology might very well
extend beyond the coal
industry. It will likely have
a worldwide impact.
Coal consumption is
down right now, but its
obituary shouldnt be writ-
ten, Karen Alderman
Harbert said at the fourth
annual Washington County
Energy Symposium on
Aug. 1 at the Hilton
Garden Inn, Southpointe. THE TIMES LEADER NEWS Sunday, September 8, 2013 PAGE 13A

Ross Twp. shooting victim: I was never afraid
Recovering from her
leg wounds, Linda
Kozic recounts night
she lost her soulmate
Pocono Record
They planned to go out
together for ice cream
after the Ross Township
municipal meeting a
month ago.
Linda and Jerry Kozic
picked up their friend
and neighbor, Vinny
LaGuardia, on the way to
the Ross Township build-
ing. Jerry was looking to
make a run for township
supervisor in the fall,
and the three decided
they would return for
LaGuardias wife to go
out for frozen treats after-
But 20 minutes into
the evening meeting, a
gunman opened re. The
three were sitting in the
back row when Linda
said she thought the halo-
gen lights began making a
popping noise.
Her husband told her
it was gunre and to get
The shooting eventu-
ally left LaGuardia and
Jerry dead, along with
Chestnuthill Township
Supervisor Dave
Fleetwood, and Linda
clinging to life.
Linda, who grew up
in Wilkes-Barre, rested
last week in a wheelchair
under the shade of a large
oak tree in the yard of the
house she shared with
Her left leg, wrapped in
layers over the place two
inches below her knee
where a bullet entered,
sat propped on a bench.
The gunshot shattered
both large bones in her
Linda said talking
through what happened
is helping her now. She
often smiled and laughed,
brushing back her long
blonde hair as she
explained who her hus-
band was and described
their musical performanc-
es together, sometimes
with their dog Fritz, who
could bark Jingle Bells.
Even during the horror
of the evening of Aug. 5,
Linda said she was calm.
I was never afraid, she
said. I just was at peace.
The gunman, identi-
ed by police as Rockne
Newell, entered through
the main entrance to
the building then briey
moved back into the park-
ing lot.
LaGuardia rushed
toward a side door exit,
with Jerry pushing Linda
behind LaGuardia. We
were like rats in a maze.
How do we get out?
Linda said.
As LaGuardia was
jumping down the steps
toward the woods, the
shooter aimed and red.
Vinny was gone very
quickly, Linda said. As
the gunman then began to
turn the corner, Lindas
leg was exposed and she
said she saw the bullet
enter, red from close
Jerry tried to tie a tour-
niquet when she told him
she couldnt move, but a
woman approached and
said she would sit on
the wound to try to stop
the bleeding. Theres so
many people who were
instrumental in this,
she said, naming medics,
nurses and doctors who
helped save her life.
The gunman then
approached, Linda said.
There was nothing in his
eyes. He was as complete-
ly devoid of humanity as
anything Ive ever seen,
she said, comparing them
to a zombies eyes on TV.
Linda said she was
propped on her elbows,
believing that if she laid
down she would succumb
to death.
A witness told her later
that the shooter was aim-
ing for her head when her
husband stepped into the
way and was shot. Linda
said she knew immedi-
ately when Jerry was shot
that he was dead, though
someone performed CPR.
I knew he was gone,
but you keep hoping
against hope, she said.
Linda said amid her
extreme pain and loss
of blood, she heard the
struggle that brought the
gunman down.
Then she caught the
sound of a familiar voice
Pocono Mountain
Regional Police Chief
Harry Lewis, who was
en route home and had
responded to the scene.
I knew I was going to
be all right when I heard
Harry, she said, whom
she knows through her
side work in web design.
Linda said she lost at
least two liters of blood,
though a rst responder
took her blood pressure
as a miraculous 120/70.
She said she knew the
young medics were see-
ing something no one
should have to see, and
she relied on her charac-
teristic humor in bad sit-
uations to crack jokes. I
said, Dang it, Im going
to make it.
Linda said her pain was
over 20 on a scale of one
to 10, and the next thing
she asked for was mor-
phine as responders put
her into a helicopter for
transport to the hospi-
tal. I can handle a lot of
pain, she said. This is
the kind of pain that can
kill you.
Doctors performed a
CAT scan to ensure she
had been struck by no
other bullets. She remem-
bers the next few days
She had four surgeries,
including one for skin
grafts on her leg that now
has a permanent rod and
plate in place. Family and
friends surrounded her
over the next two weeks
in the hospital and con-
tinue to support her.
They were there the
whole time, Linda said.
God bless them.
She left the hospital
Aug. 16 but continues
to have her bandages
changed every day as the
risk of infection contin-
ues. For now, she said,
her routine is doctors,
then it will be rehab and
more doctors over an esti-
mated 16-month recovery.
But moving forward
without her husband, the
breadwinner for the cou-
ple and love of her life,
will be most difcult. I
miss my husband deeply,
but I know hes here, she
Linda and Jerry met in
the 1980s and started as
friends before becoming
something more, marry-
ing and performing in con-
certs together for years.
Our hearts were never
more than six feet apart,
she said, calling Jerry her
She said Jerry was run-
ning for supervisor after
becoming more inter-
ested in politics and, like
his sister, a supervisor
in Tobyhanna Township,
was someone who refused
to be complacent. They
are doers, Linda said.
Theyre people that look
out for the underdog.
Linda said she intends
to walk into the court-
room when the time
comes, even if it is with
some assistance, but
refuses to speak the name
of the shooter.
Whether he receives
a death sentence or life
imprisonment, she said
she knows the right thing
will be done and he will
never walk the streets
Lindas family and
friends have also orga-
nized the Help Linda
Kozic fund, which by
Friday had raised more
than $10,000 toward her
medical bills. She wore
one of the wristbands
being sold as a fundraiser,
and said she is most over-
whelmed by the support.
There are just no
words to say the depths of
my gratitude, she said.

AnnA BArtnicki
Sept. 3, 2013
Anna Bartnicki, 89, of
Exeter, died at the Riverstreet
Manor, Wilkes-Barre, on
Tuesday of complications fol-
lowing multiple heart attacks.
She would have been 90 on
Nov. 20.
Born to the late Michael
Johns Chiampi and
Antoinette Carpenter Chiampi,
Anna was the only girl of seven
children. She graduated from
Exeter High School, man-
aged a local drug store and
met her late husband, Edward
Bartnicki, immediately before
he served his country during
World War II. Upon his return,
they married in 1946 and
became an example to many for
the next 62 years of what mar-
riage, love, loyalty and close-
ness of family truly mean.
Only after raising her fam-
ily, Anna returned to work as
a manager for Leslie Fay. She
gave up all work outside the
home to care for her mother
and soon after that, her hus-
band. This care-giving went on
for decades, and Anna never
voiced a complaint about her
personal sacrice. During this
time, she survived open heart
surgery and cancer yet did not
miss a step upon returning
home to continue her service
to her family. Even after being
stricken with severe arthritis,
she struggled to remain active
and continued her encourage-
ment of those in her care.
Anna possessed an uninch-
ing faith and did not hesitate to
teach that faith to others by her
simple example of prayer and
complete trust in God. She was
a magnet to many children who
frequented her home from their
infancy into adulthood. She
enjoyed sewing and became the
neighborhood seamstress dur-
ing her later years.
A person who respected
life in all forms, Anna reveled
in her own pets and did much
animal rescue through her life.
She leaves behind her beloved
parrot, Mr. B, in whom she
Anna was an avid follower
of current events and could
engage in the details of poli-
tics and world news with great
enthusiasm. Although so much
of her life was spent in her
hometown, she was wise and
intuitive, thus making her
advice sought throughout her
lifetime. Even at 89, she con-
tinued her role as condante
to many. A tribute to Anna that
is an example of how loved she
was is that Jason Rynkiewicz,
a former neighbor who visited
the Bartnicki home since his
birth, took leave from his posi-
tion at the Pentagon with the
Navy to come home not only to
pay his last respects to Anna
but to be her pallbearer in full
military uniform. Her inu-
ence on the lives of so many
is reected in many instances
such as this.
Anna never sought anything
more than to be a good wife and
mother. In both those capaci-
ties she was unsurpassed.
Preceded in death by her
beloved husband, Edward, in
2007, by her parents and by
her brothers, she is survived
by her daughter and son-in-
law, Gloria and Joel Riegel,
of Exeter. Along with many
nieces and nephews, she is
survived by her step-grandson,
Brett Riegel and his family,
Michelle Brown, Rachel Brown
and Aidan Riegel.
She will be sorely missed by
her daughter and son-in-law
with whom she maintained
the closest of relationships and
also by her especially support-
ive nephew, Edward Ciampi
and his wife, Fran, of Old
Annas life was celebrated
privately by family and close
friends at the Gubbiotti
Funeral Home, 1030 Wyoming
Ave., Exeter, on Saturday. The
Mass of Christian Burial was
offered by her cherished and
close friend, the Rev. Paul
McDonnell, O.S.J., in the
Chapel of the Oblates of St.
Joseph Seminary. Interment
was in Mount Olivet Cemetery,
Pallbearers were Brett
Riegel, Joseph Bartnicki,
Walter Kalinowski, Kevin
Rogers, Kyle Rogers and Jason
Special gratitude is offered to
Dr. James Bruno who was very
instrumental in her surviving
open heart surgery and cancer
more than a decade ago. His
kindness, gentle understanding
and unfailing responsiveness
will never be forgotten.
Any contributions in her
memory may be made to the
Oblates of St. Joseph in care of
Father Paul McDonnell, 1880
Highway 315, Pittston, PA

Paul James PJ Shoemaker
passed away unexpectedly at
Wilkes Barre General Hospital
on Thursday. His spirit, presence
and twisted sense of humor will
live on through his wife, Kerris
Bellino, and his children, whom
he adored and were his whole
Paul was born on Oct. 6,
1981, son of Vicki Walker Long,
Plymouth, and Peter Yourglivich,
Lain. He was also called son
by his grandmother, the late
Jimmie JoAnn JoJo Harrison,
and aunt Judy Corker, Plymouth,
who helped raise him and loved
him dearly. He was very dedi-
cated to his mother, with whom
he waged endless two-way battles
that scared most women and
children but whom no one else
ever dare say a word against; and
Gram JoJo, who spoiled him rot-
ten and was the ercest protec-
tor, defender and staunch advo-
cate of her Peach. Paul attended
Wilkes Barre Area and Wyoming
Valley West schools, and is still
a legend in his own right in the
halls of every school he attended.
Throughout his life, Paul
worked on anything that could be
taken apart and put back togeth-
er. He started with his mothers
VCR and a brand new Nintendo
and graduated to the type of
machinery used at recycling cen-
ters, which he would proudly tell
you are bigger than a house. He
could listen to a problem with
one of those machines and not
only tell you what was wrong
with it, but have it xed before
your on-site mechanic strapped
on his tool belt. He often moved
ahead in his jobs very quickly
due to this talent, and that was a
source of great pride to him. He
rarely bragged about his abilities
and rapid advancement to his
co-workers (at least not the way
he told it). He loved his black
Dodge Charger and named it
Sideswipe, and everyone knew
when he was coming when that
car came within a block of his
He met his wife Kerris in the
most unlikely of places, but his
charm, quick wit, smile and abil-
ity to show true care and con-
cern for her were no match for
her defenses. He read her every
thought, saw through her ability
to hide her pain, taught her how
to live her life for her and no one
else, and most importantly that
true love does exist and is more
amazing than she ever dreamed.
He is survived by three children:
daughter, Destiny Danowski,
his personality twin, with whom
he shared his twisted sense of
humor and beautiful smile; son,
Kaleb Walker, his mini me,
whose facial expressions and
mannerisms are exactly like his
Dads and on whom the sun rose
and set; and daughter, Kaleigha
Walker, whose strength, deter-
mination and no fear attitude
he admired and bragged about
very often; two canine daugh-
ters, Bella Blue and Molly May,
who brought him so much joy
and comfort in both good times
and in bad; and numerous aunts,
uncles and cousins who also
reside in the Plymouth/Larksville
He was preceded in death by
too many members of his fam-
ily who died too young: cous-
ins, Randy and Matthew Jones,
of Plymouth; cousin, Brandyn
Robbins, of Larksville, whom he
loved to tell stories about and
missed dearly; and an uncle,
Terry Jones, who passed shortly
before Paul was born.
A viewing and memo-
rial service will be held at the
Kielty-Moran Funeral Home,
87 Washington St., Plymouth.
Friends may call from 5 to 7 p.m.
Monday. In lieu of owers, dona-
tions can be made to his mother,
Vicki, or wife, Kerris to be set
aside for his childrens educations
or to your local animal shelter.

square from the basilica

Francis announced the
day of fasting and prayer
Sept. 1, alarmed at the
acceleration of U.S. threats
to strike Syria after the
chemical weapons attack.
Since then, the Vatican
has ramped up its peace
message, summoning
ambassadors for a brieng
by the Holy See foreign
minister on its position on
the war. Francis appealed
directly to world powers
at the Group of 20 meet-
ing in Russia, urging them
this week to abandon the
futile pursuit of a military
solution in Syria and work
instead for a negotiated

daylong fast and organized
similar vigils in their home
dioceses. Vatican Radio

who thanked the pope for
his initiative in a letter
earlier this week, invited
Muslims to join the fast in

Even before Syria,
Congress faced a busy
and difcult fall packed
with battles.
Obama and his allies
in the Democratic-run
Senate face ghts from
House Republicans over
bills to fund government
agencies and raise the
ceiling on federal borrow-
ing to avert a market-rat-
tling government default.
Then there are efforts by
conservatives to cut off
money for Obamas health
care law, with open enroll-
ment for health insurance
exchanges beginning Oct.
After Syria, Congresss
most immediate task
is passing a temporary
spending bill to prevent
much of the government
from shutting down on
the Oct. 1 start of the
new budget year.
The stopgap measure
would buy time to work
out funding government
programs over the next
12 months, but even its
passage is in doubt.
Republicans are con-
sidering whether to use
the measure as a last-
ditch assault on Obamas
expansion of federally
subsidized medical care
and new requirement
that millions of people
without health insur-
ance either buy it or pay
penalties to the Internal
Revenue Service.
GOP leaders are eager
to avoid an impasse and
government shutdown.

that they prefer a straight-
forward temporary spend-
ing bill that would keep
agencies running at cur-
rent budget levels, reect-
ing the automatic, across-
the-board spending cuts

A grass-roots campaign
over Congress August

pressure on the leaders

Democrats and the
White House are eager
to reverse the cuts, and
many defense hawk
Republicans would like
to as well. But there have
been no fruitful negotia-
tions between the White
House and House GOP
Negotiations between
White House ofcials and
a small group of Senate
Republicans collapsed
last month over famil-
iar disagreements over
tax increases and cuts to
popular federal benet
Without a deal, those
automatic spending cuts
could become entrenched
through all of next year
and possibly into the next
several years.
A 2011 agreement
called for a total budget
of $1.058 trillion next
year to operate federal
agencies. The automatic
spending cuts triggered
by failing to follow up
with further decit
cuts by curbing benet

gure by $91 billion, to
$967 billion for the 2014
budget year.
A comparable spending
gure for the soon-to-be-
completed 2013 budget
year is about $988 billion.
The additional cuts loom-
ing next year come almost
entirely from defense.
House Armed Services
Committee Chairman
Howard Buck McKeon,
R-Calif., says many
Republicans on his com-
mittee want to reverse

dition for voting for the

Avoiding a shutdown is
just one step.

ability to fully pay all its
bills, including interest
payments to bondholders
and Social Security ben-
ets, will run out some
time in October unless
Congress raises the $16.7
trillion cap on its borrow-
ing authority.
That legislation could
be even more vexing
because Boehner and tea
party Republicans see it
as leverage to force fur-
ther spending cuts or
other GOP priorities into
Obama agreed in 2011
to Boehners demand
that spending cuts equal
the size of the debt limit
increase, but the presi-
dent says he wont do it

say such a clean debt
limit increase Obama
wants is a nonstarter.
An immigration over-
haul could get lost in the
The Senate in June
passed a broad bill that
would allow millions of
immigrants now in the
country illegally to stay,
work and eventually
acquire citizenship. House
Republicans reject what
they call a special path to

approach that begins with
better securing U.S. bor-
ders before excusing most
people who entered the
country illegally or over-
stayed their visas from
being deported.
it simple, but something
had to be provided.
That was the impetus
that drove the committee;
Catholic Social Services
took the lead and the
kitchen was established.
They wanted to be able
to sustain the needs of
people over the long
haul, Brislin said.
400 meals daily
Monsignor Joseph
Kelly, executive direc-
tor of Catholic Social
Services, said more than
400 meals are being
served at lunchtime seven
days a week and 200-plus
dinners are served on
Tuesdays, Wednesdays
and Thursdays. During
the holidays, hundreds
of meals are delivered to
people in need.
From the beginning,
all patrons were referred
to as guests, and vol-
unteers were trained to
always have eye contact
and to treat them with
dignity, Brislin said.
And we always wanted
to offer our guests choic-
es, said Brislin. The
poor dont have choices.
I always wondered what
it would be like to have
to stand in a bread line
and wait for a handout.
I wanted our kitchen to
be about interaction with
the guests to offer a
homey atmosphere.
The building that hous-
es the kitchen was for-
merly Rudolphs Electric
Service. After purchas-
ing the building, a lot
of work had to be done
cleaning the site and
constructing a kitchen
and storage area. All of it
was done through volun-
teers in the middle of the
winter of 1982-83 with no
heat in the building.
But through the grace
of God, we got it done,
Brislin said. Thanks to
so many volunteers and
the trade unions who
helped so much to get it
McAndrews, 84, said
the kitchen couldnt have
opened or operated with-
out volunteers. The build-
ing was purchased at a
U.S. Marshals auction for
$62,500 slightly more
than the committee had
hoped to pay.
We thought the kitch-
en might be needed for
six or seven years until
the economy improved,
McAndrews said. And
here we are 30 years later
and serving more people
than ever before. Times
have changed, but not
for the better. Too many
people just cant afford to
buy food.
McAndrews said the
kitchen fullls a critical
need in the community.
If the kitchen wasnt
here, where would these
people eat? he asked.
There are no other pro-
grams like this available
(in the Wyoming Valley).
The food banks are won-
derful, but you have to be
able to cook your meals.
Most of our clients dont
have homes.
Steady volunteer
Joe Boyle, a retired
postal worker, has been
volunteering at the kitch-
en every Thursday for the
past two years.
Its good to give some-
thing back, he said.
People need help and its
good that I can help my
fellow man.
Kathy Miller, of the
citys Parsons neighbor-
hood, said she volunteers
because she feels fortu-
nate that she is able to
offer her time and ser-
vice. You know the old
saying, There but for the
grace of God go I. Im
happy to be able to help,
she said.
Lien Do, 19, a soph-
omore at California
University of
Pennsylvania, and her
cousin, Randy Nguyen,
15, a student at Holy
Redeemer High School,
were making sandwiches
recently at the kitchen.
Asked why she was
volunteering, Do said,
Because I am grateful.
Mike Cianciotta has
been the director at the
kitchen for one year, tak-
ing over for the late Anne
Marie McCawley, who
ran the kitchen for 25
years. Its unfortunate
that there is such a great
need for the kitchen,
he said. But we are for-
tunate that were able to
meet the needs of our
Joe Frank has been
involved with the kitch-
en from the beginning.
He has helped secure
donations and he is one
of the kitchens biggest
donors. The numbers
keep increasing, he said.
Men, women and chil-
dren some living in
automobiles would not
have anything to eat with-
out the kitchen.
Helping children
Kelly said besides the
kitchen, the center serves
other needs. Nearly 600
backpacks lled with
back-to-school supplies
recently were distributed
to children. Many fami-
lies come to its clothes
closet to get clothing for
their children to wear to
McCawleys spirit lives
on at the kitchen through
the volunteers who she
taught by example, he
said. Everybody at the
kitchen has a sincere
desire to help others, he
said. And our clients are
so appreciative.
On June 2, 1983, the
kitchens rst meal was
served to 66 people. One
day not long ago, the
doors, as always, opened
at 11 a.m. and the crowd
started shufing in for
the mid-day meal. On
this day, more than 400
walked through the door
and another 200 would
return for dinner.
Brislin said visitors
always were impressed
with the tablecloths and
owers on each table and
rufed curtains on the
A tantalizing aroma

West Pittston Mayor
Tony Denisco, who was
faced with 853 ooded
structures in his town, said
hes been reecting on the
anniversary and marvel-
ing at continued efforts to
bounce back.
While 20 homes are
slated for buyout and some
businesses were lost, many
decided to repair and
stay put, he said. Sewer
and other infrastructure
repairs should be under
way in March.
We have a lot to do yet,
but its coming along just
ne, Denisco said. The
people in West Pittston are
very strong. Well be get-
ting by.
Residential buyouts
If pending buyouts go
as planned, roughly 200
residential properties
from Nescopeck to West
Pittston that were ooded
in 2011 will be demolished
and kept undeveloped by
This neighborhood will
never be the same, said
Beverly Condo, a lifelong
resident of the low-lying
Plainsville section of
Plains Township, which
was among the hardest hit.
She and her husband,
Ray, had 5 feet on the rst
oor and have remodeled,
but they hope their upcom-
ing buyout offer will be
high enough to allow for
a fresh start somewhere
Our life savings went to
xing up what ood insur-
ance didnt cover. Were
just existing, Ray said.
My blood pressure
medication has doubled
from the stress, she said.
About 36 properties
are proposed for buyout
in the township, most in
Plainsville. Ray Condo
estimates less than half
of the neighborhood resi-
dents have returned to
their homes.
Beverly Condo is torn

parents stayed loyal to the

I have mixed emotions,

Its not the same here any-
Plymouth Township res-
ident John Rinehimer has a
similar sense of uncertainty
awaiting a buyout offer that
will determine if he stays in
the municipality hes always
called home. Township of-
cials are hoping some buy-
out residents relocate to
property on higher ground
in the township to protect
the tax base, but Rinehimer
said hes not sure where he
and his wife will live if they
accept an offer.
Chief of the townships
Tilbury Fire and Rescue,
Rinehimer was the rst of
several township property
owners to elevate his East
Poplar Street home on a
new foundation. He didnt
move his belongings two
years ago because the rst
oor was safe at a river
level of 41.5 feet, which
was below the initial river
crest projections.
After responding to the
ooding as an emergency
worker, he returned home
to nd 16 inches on the
rst oor.
While Rinehimer and
most of the townships
ooded businesses have
remodeled and returned,
there are several proper-
ties in his neighborhood
that havent been touched.
You can still see the
mud lines on the win-
dows, he said.
Some township residents
want to leave but wont par-
ticipate in buyouts because
they owe more than their
homes are worth, he said.
Whether it will be fea-
sible for us, I dont know,
Rinehimer said.
Out of harms way
Hunlock Township
Manager Vicki Benscoter
supports the mindset that
structures dont belong in
areas prone to ooding.
Seven properties along
the river have been lev-
eled since 1996. Another
buyout is pending, and the
township has requested
four more using county-
managed federal disaster
recovery funding.
Township-owned prop-
erty that once held homes
is now a parking lot and
public boat launch near the
Susquehanna Warrior Trail
along the river.
Our aim is to have no
houses down there to make
sure everyone is away from
that river, Benscoter said.
Its not a matter of if that
area will ood again. It is a
matter of when.
Jenkins Township will
lose as many as 54 proper-
ties in buyouts, most in the
bowl-shaped neighborhood
known as The Patch near
the Eighth Street Bridge.
Township ofcials have
described The Patch as a
war zone because many
residents gave up and never
came back after the water
Supervisor Joseph
Zelonis said he will cel-
ebrate demolition in The
Patch because hes certain
it will ood again.
Ive been in ofce since
2004, and this was the third
ood. I think about it all the
time when it rains. Since
Ive been in ofce, I hate
rain, he said.
Suggestions for the post-
buyout patch have included
a community garden or a
low-maintenance tness
trail. Zelonis said hes open
to any options that require
little maintenance or worry.
Id rather cut grass there
than see that destruction
again, he said.
New chapter
Shickshinny Mayor
Beverly Moore has under-
gone a complete attitude
adjustment since the 2011
She sobbed when she
saw the aftermath two
years ago, including rst-
oor ooding of her own
home, which had been
elevated to keep the main
living area one foot above
Agnes levels. About 80
percent of the properties in
the borough were ooded,
many to the second oor.
But last week she was
bubbling with enthusiasm
talking about the boroughs
rst annual bass tourna-
ment on Sept. 14, which
will include a motorboat
and kayak shing tourna-
We are so excited. I
wont be able to sleep the
night before the tourna-
ment, she said.
Since the ood, the bor-
ough has added a concrete
boat launch, paved access
paths, a new playground,
parking lot and solar light-
ing along the river. Land
that will be cleared due to
up to 42 buyouts may house
an athletic eld, commu-
nity garden, horseshoe or
bocce pits or remain space
for events.
A new take for us is
going to be embracing the
river along with fearing it.
Were starting to open up
our town to tourism, and
there are some great ideas
out there to enhance the
town and turn it into a des-
tination, Moore said.
Visitors welcome
Most ood-damaged
businesses have reopened,
and Moore envisions a
new bike rental, kayak and
bakery catering to the bor-
oughs new visitors. She
believes new foot trafc
will offset the loss of resi-
dents in the ood zone.
A poor-us mood didnt
suit the character of the
community, Moore said.
We were ood victims
for a long time, but were
no longer victims. Were
survivors, she said.

When Tom Pugh of
Hunlock Creek rst vis-
ited Litewska Childrens
Hospital in Warsaw, Poland,
in the early 1990s, he
noticed the 350-bed facilty
was able to turn on only
every fourth light and the
elevators reached only to the
fourth oor, so the young
patients had to nd another
way to the fth and sixth
Nurses carried them on
their backs, he said.
Thanks to generous bene-
factors, including a Polish
woman who staged an opera
to pay for new elevators, life
at the acute-care hospital
is easier nowadays. Still,
its difcult to be a young
oncology or transplant
patient, feeling pain, facing
treatments and spending so
much time in the hospital
setting that Litewska has its
own school.
One bright spot is the
childrens art program, Pugh
said. Ive seen classrooms
where theyre working and
theyre smiling and having
fun. Part of it is recreation,
and part of it is a release.
Sometimes it helps them
overcome their shyness,
and it can make a child feel
pretty good to have artwork
hanging on the wall in the
Marriott in Warsaw.
International hotel chains
often purchase the artwork,
Pugh said, and area resi-
dents will have a chance to
join those corporations
in supporting Litewska.
Various pieces of art, all
crafted by the pediatric
patients, will be on display
Gallery at Luzerne County
Community College in
Nanticoke from Saturday
through Oct. 17 in an exhib-
it titled Crayons &Care II.
Pugh, who chairs the
exhibit committee, said
proceeds of any pieces
sold will benet the
Litewska art program.
Ahigher purpose
defnes this display
of youthful artwork
Cats and other animals are frequent subjects for the pediatric
patients of the Litewska Hospital in Warsaw, Poland.
Even though Michelle
Pfeiffer and Robert DeNiro
are two of the most versatile
actors in Hollywood, theyve
both spent much of their
careers married to the mob.
No performer in the modern
era is more associated with
gangsters than DeNiro, whos
enjoyed his greatest success in
a series of mobbed-up classics,
including Mean Streets,
The Godfather: Part II,
GoodFellas and Casino.
And Pfeiffer is nearly as
connected. Who can forget her
turn as a coked-up moll oppo-
site Al Pacino in Scarface
or her portrayal of a widowed
maa wife in Married To The
So it makes sense that both
actors were the rst choices
to play the roles of organized-
crime boss Giovanni Manzoni
and wife Maggie in The
Family, a dark action comedy
about a brood forced to enter
the witness-protection pro-
gram after Giovanni snitches
on his crew.
Along with their offspring
(Glees Dianna Agron,
John DLeo), Giovanni and
Maggie relocate to a sleepy
town in France where, much
to the chagrin of their FBI
handler (Tommy Lee Jones),
they quickly blow their cover
by managing their problems
the family way. The lm,
directed by Luc Besson (The
Professional), opens Friday
in area theaters.
Because The Familys
Maggie Manzoni is miles
away from Scarfaces dead-
eyed Elvira Hancock, Pfeiffer
didnt ash back to the Brian
DePalma classic. But she
did wonder if Maggie was a
smidge too close to Married
To The Mobs Angela de
I thought about it, but the
only real connection between
the two characters is that they
are both married to mobsters.
And theres a wide variety of
those women too, the actress,
55, says.
I was really excited to do
this movie because I loved
doing Married to the Mob. I
loved that character, and this
is really the rst opportunity
for me to enter back into that
world. I was just thrilled and
excited and a little bit ner-
vous that people would make
comparisons. But, I think,
ultimately, the characters are
pretty different.
DeNiro had no such trepida-
tion. In fact, as a means of pre-
paring for his role, he sat down
and re-watched GoodFellas,
the Martin Scorsese-directed,
Nick Pileggi-scripted tale
about Henry Hill (Ray Liotta),
a thug who rats out his bosses
(Paul Sorvino, DeNiro) to the
I looked at the movie to
refresh my mind, DeNiro, 70,
says. On the DVD there was a
lot of stuff that I had not seen
like interviews with Henry
Hill and other characters. I
wanted to make sure that I had
everything covered. And I
spoke to Nick Pileggi a couple
of times as well.
The Manzonis might be a
crazy clan with a penchant for
violence, but Pfeiffer found
much about Maggie that was
relatable. In many ways, the
actress says, Maggie is the
bedrock of the family.
I think (Maggies) story
is really about motherhood,
Pfeiffer says. Whether youre
a mob wife or someone from
Orange County or Europe, you
have that mother protector
(impulse). I think almost
everyone can relate to the
themes of this movie.
Pfeiffer says there are even
a few similarities between the
Manzonis and her own family,
which includes her husband
of two decades, TV produc-
er David E. Kelly (Boston
Legal), and their two chil-
dren, Claudia Rose, 20 and
John Henry, 19.
We have unconditional love
(in common), Pfeiffer says.
They would do anything for
each other, and I would do
anything for my family. We
both have that bond of priori-
tizing family.
DeNiro, the husband of
actress Grace Hightower and
the father of eight children,
concurs. Michelle and I have
a similar experiences, so its
all about family, relationships
and marriage. We were able
to move into this relationship
easily, especially with Lucs
Pfeiffer was drawn to The
Family for the opportunity
to do a movie that boasts ele-
ments of both action and com-
edy. Its right in her wheel-
house, she says, to embrace
both the dark and the light.

eties, we spend

When you look at the leather

of experiences led the artists to
create them.

woman clutching a hammer and
looking seriously determined.
Does she have a black eye? Is
she prepared to use the tool to
defend herself?

Rodney ODell Davis? Why is
she so sad?
Youll see a skeleton pouring
drinks, a rose resting on a piano

whose torso has been cut open
to reveal a chest lled with
buzzing insects. What do they
all mean?

The fall movie going season
offers a bevy of hotly anticipat-
ed performances some from
famous faces, others from less
familiar ones. Here are 10
worth being excited about:
AUGHEY Hes already
given an Oscar-worthy sup-
porting performance in
Jeff Nichols Mississippi
River coming-of-age tale
Mud earlier this year. And
McConaughey also has a role
in Martin Scorseses upcom-
ing The Wolf of Wall Street.

man who smuggles alternative
medicine. It could be the apo-

The British actors lead per-
formance in 12 Years a Slave
as a free black man with a fam-
ily in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.,
sold into slavery in Louisiana,
is a hugely powerful portrait of
undefeated dignity.
There are two on-screen actors
in Alfonso Cuarons space
thriller Gravity: George
Clooney and Bullock. In zero
gravity, Bullock grounds the
lm in one of the nest, least-
adorned performances of her
little known, Isaac landed the
lead part in the Coen brothers
Greenwich village folk revival
Inside Llewyn Davis. In a
lm about an early 60s musi-
cian always narrowly missing
his breakthrough, Isaacs own
big break is assured. He also
awlessly sings and performs
several folk ballads in the lm.
Hanks lead performance in
Captain Phillips will rightly
be hailed and almost certainly
land him another Oscar nomi-
nation. But it wouldnt work if
he didnt have a foil. In Paul
Greengrasss docudrama of
a cargo ship taken by Somali
pirates, Abdi plays Muse, the
pirate leader who nicknames
Hanks captain Irish. Its the
rst lm for the Minneapolis

Osage County, as Margo
Martindales son; and The
Hobbit: The Desolation of
Smaug, as the titular dragon.
Particularly remarkable is his
precise portrayal of Assange.
been years since the 77-year-
old actor starred in a lm, a
chance Alexander Payne gave
Dern for Nebraska, a black-
and-white road trip of father
and son (Will Forte). In it, the
loquacious Dern turns taci-
turn as an alcoholic but spir-
ited veteran.
If you thought the Sundance
Kid didnt say much, Redford
is entirely mum in director
J.C. Chandors All Is Lost.
Redford is utterly alone on

We may not be in a position to buy an
X-ray machine or a dialysis machine for the
hospital, but we can certainly send some
art supplies, said Pugh, who continued his
relationship with Litewska for years through
the John Heinz Institute in Wilkes-Barre
Township, where he was a senior vice presi-
dent and chief operating ofcer before his
Every time Ive visited the hospital, the
children have done something special for us,
he said. One time, a little boy and a little
girl, both patients, danced for us. Another
time, a group of teenagers did a scene, in
English, from Peter and the Wolf. Later they
talked to us, but their English was limited to
lines from the play, he added with a chuckle.
For kids who are in some pain and going
through treatments, they create very bright and
cheerful scenes, Pugh said of the multimedia
artwork. There are lots of birds, lots of little
animals you would see in the woods in Poland.
Flowers, a Krakow palace and the cathedral
where Pope John Paul II once served also are
represented in the artwork.
The exhibit includes 150 pieces, all framed,
matted or mounted by Bonnie Shane, owner
of Upstairs Gallery in Shickshinny. I worked
on the project all summer, Shane said.
An opening reception will take place from 6
to 8 p.m. Saturday. Then, on Sept. 15, a story
hour for children will take place in the gallery
from 2 to 3 p.m.
In the scope of the world, this connection
is not even a blip, Pugh said. But I like to
think there are a lot of children and adults in
Poland and the United States who feel good
about each other.

our lifetimes trying to become what is social-
ly acceptable, but were all light and dark,
she says. We all have both sides to us.
DeNiro has some experience making movies that
poke fun at mobsters. In both Analyze This and
Analyze That, he played a mob boss so conicted
about his career that he seeks out psychiatric help.
Everybody is always interested in dark themes,
and if theres humor connected to it, it seems that that
helps, especially if its a real integral, organic part of the
whole thing, DeNiro says.
As far as DeNiro is concerned, The Family works
because no matter how funny it is, its also authentic.
I think the human part of it has to be important
and there needs to be some grounding in reality. Not
that you cant go off in directions but you got to stay
grounded, and this does.
Through the years, DeNiro and Pfeiffer have starred
in two movies together Stardust and New Years
Day but they didnt share scenes in either one. The
Family marks the rst time theyve been on the same
set at the same time.
It was a dream come true working with him,
Pfeiffer says. As an actor, it doesnt really get much
better than working with DeNiro. The third time is a
charm. It took three movies to actually be onscreen
with him but it nally happened.
I didnt know what to expect, really. Wed only met
on the red carpet, saying cheese for the opening of the
other two lms. He was just delightful in every sense
of the word.
I was really so relieved to see how generous he was
with all of us actors. He was so giving and open. It was
just great. Our only regret is that we didnt have more
scenes together because it was really fun.
While Pfeiffer has appeared in increasingly fewer
lms over the past decade, DeNiro is a workhouse who
already has starred in a duo of 2013 releases The
Big Wedding and The Killing Season and still
has another American Hustle due out before
the end of the year.
I enjoy myself, he says. I dont really do as many
movies as you think. My movies are spread out.
With another quartet of lms scheduled for 2014
release, including possibly The Irishman, which
will reteam DeNiro with Scorsese for the tale of
Northeastern Pennsylvania-connected maa hitman
Frank Sheeran, the actor shows no signs of slowing
What am I gonna do? he asks. Die?

The Family
In reality, the artists have used not photography but
charcoal, pastels and oils to trick the eye, which is
what Trompe LOeil means in French.
Among the realistic-looking pieces youll see at
Misericordia is one Sharon Hourigan of Glen Summit
created, depicting elements precious to her family.
Along with a portrait of her 20-year-old daughter,
Meg, the piece includes clementine oranges (a favorite
fruit), a silver tray that was a wedding gift, a perfume
bottle, a sequined veil, a lamp and vase from a bed-
side table, a small book that relates a history of Glen
Summit and a larger book about Wyoming Seminary,
where Hourigans husband and daughter went to
school. We have a deep love of Wyoming Seminary,
she said.
Hourigan also loves her art lessons with Waichulis.
For me its been life-changing. He really took a
chance allowing me into the program. I didnt have a
portfolio, no resume at all. The only thing I had was the
desire and the passion and the willingness, she said.
Afull-time momfor many years, Hourigan, 56, began
studying art four years ago and is thrilled to embark on
a new venture.
Impressed by all the artists represented in the show,
she said, Im so proud to be among that group. Im so
honored. The talent is so great.

Haldol and Hyacinths:
A Bipolar Life by Melody
Moezzi; Avery Books ($26)

One of Melody Moezzis biggest
gripes about being bipolar is that
nobody rewards it. If you have can-
cer, you get owers, visitors and
compassion. If you have a mental
illness, you get plastic utensils, isola-
tion and fear. If you survive cancer,
people consider you a hero and inspi-
ration, and they tell you so.
Whats more, the mentally ill have
no champions: We have no especial-
ly loud and high-prole advocates.
No Michael J. Fox, no Christopher
Reeves, no Lance Armstrongs. No
pink boas or bracelets or ribbons or
T-shirts. They do now. Consider
Moezzis new book, Haldol and
Hyacinths, the crazy, colorful rub-
ber wristband for bipolar sufferers
Blistering, brash and irrever-
ent, Moezzi lays out the years she
spent suffering from a combina-
tion of mania and depression that
she describes as so delusional and
ecstatic that it tricks you into believ-
ing you can leap tall buildings in a
single bound, or so depressed and
hopeless that it has you begging
gravity to work its morbid magic.
Moezzi, an Iranian-American writ-
er, attorney, and activist now living
in Raleigh, N.C., is a spokeswoman
for a variety of issues, particularly
those relating to mental health and
human rights. Parts of her memoir
have appeared in various articles for
Bipolar Magazine, the website of the
National Alliance on Mental Illness,
CNN and other media outlets.
Although much of the memoir
takes place in crisis centers and
mental hospitals, this is A Bipolar
Life, not just Iranian-American
Girl, Interrupted. Moezzi describes
her childhood, adolescence, college
years including Emory law school
and marriage, and the many frus-
trating attempts made over the years
to nail down the exact nature of her
mental illness: Bipolar I, the most
severe form of the disease. In search
of its origins, Moezzi sifts through
various possibilities, beginning with
the end to her parents comfortable
life in Ohio when revolution in Iran
resulted in their expulsion from the
United States.
Though she was born in Chicago
in 1979, the nomadic life she was
exposed to before returning to
America in the early 80s guaranteed
Moezzi a dual existence from the
start. The euphoria she felt during
a summer in Glacier Park, Mont.,
now appears to have been a case of
hypomania, a mild version of what
would develop, within 10 years, into
full-blown mania, a classic indicator
of her disorder. Depression took its
toll as well.
At its worst, Moezzi compares its
emotional effects to white phospho-
rous, the chemical used on Iranians
by Saddam Hussein during the Iraq-
Iran war, which caused blisters,
burns, smoke inhalation, death. But
the biggest battle and obstacle to
getting treated Moezzi says, was
her failure to accept bipolar disorder
as an illness at all. If her family and
husband hadnt observed her care-
fully and kept notes, which Moezzi
calls her souvenirs from hell, she
would not have distinguished her
delusions of grandeur from reality.
The thing about being crazy is
that you dont feel crazy. You need no
explanation for anything youre think-
ing, feeling or doing. It all seems per-
fectly sane, ingenious even. I really
believed that I had singlehandedly
discovered the secret to life, that I
had all the most important answers.
. And more than anything, I really
believed that nothing I was doing
was remotely irrational.
Moezzi frequently suggests that
craziness is tantamount to brilliance,
with sanity running a dull second,
and that her disorder has positive
applications: If it means you have
to be a little crazy and delusional to
reach your dreams, so be it. After
all, delusions arent really delusions
if you realize them. Indeed, there
are times in the book when its hard
to say where the Iranian-American
Princess act ends and the bipolar
Melody starts. Temper tantrums,
scathing humor and intolerance for
psych ward rules are the corner-
stones of her various hospital stays.
But these same qualities also have
been the building blocks of her new-
found sanity, which Moezzi, with
typical sarcasm, calls stabilized
volatility. Theyre proof that no one
has to give up their personality and
passion for justice, much less a sense
of the absurd, to rejoin the ranks of
the sane.
Moezzi has said that though shes
hardly the quiet type, this was
not a story she was
eager to share. I didnt particularly
want to put all my crazy out there
for the world to see and judge. I
didnt particularly want to relive all
that trauma and madness. But as an
activist and advocate for the mental-
ly ill, she knew her book might save
lives. For the many who struggle to
make sense of and survive this mis-
understood disorder, her battered,
courageous postcard from the edge
cant come too soon.
Book ofers viewof bipolar disorder
We stand on the shoul-
ders of those who came
before us, goes an oft-
paraphrased line. David
Levithan gives vivid voice
to it in his latest YA novel,
Two Boys Kissing
(Knopf Books for Young
Readers, $16.99, ages 12
and older). The story is
narrated by a Greek cho-
rus of ghosts who look on
at the lives of gay teens
today and pick out a few
to recount: Harry and
Craig, though no longer
a couple, are gearing up
to set a Guinness World
Record for longest kiss;
Ryan and Avery are about
to experience the rapture
and complications of rst
We are your shadow
uncles, this chorus says,
your mothers or your
grandmothers best friend
from college, the author of
that book you found in the
gay section of the library
or names on a quilt.
We see that some boys
enjoy a freedom the ghosts
dreamed of and fought for;
it was only after Stonewall
and gay pride marches
that a school would orga-
nize the gay prom at which
Ryan and Avery meet.
Some boys, on the other
hand, still feel shame or
experience violence that
the ghosts recognize only
too well.
Francesca Lia Block
also nods to Greek sto-
rytelling in her post-
apocalyptic novel, Love
in the Time of Global
Warming (Christina
Ottaviano Books/Henry
Holt, $16.99, ages 14 and
older). A massive earth-
quake that has reduced
Los Angeles to rubble
is called The Earth
Shakera common epi-
thet for Poseidonand a
motley group of survivors
proceeds on a road trip
to the accompaniment of
readings from Homers
Odyssey. Blocks charac-
teristic blend of magical
touches and gritty realism
lends itself well to a tale
with mythic overtones.
She plays with arche-
typeswarrior princess,
consort, soothsayerin a
story that reects equal-
ly on nding ones way
home after a rough night,
a rough youth or a rough
global catastrophe.
Long Island author
Henry Clarks fresh sense
of the absurd makes
What We Found in the
Sofa and How It Saved
the World (Little,
Brown Books for Young
Readers, $17, ages 8-12)
a hilarious tale of attempt-
ed world domination and
mind control through cell
phones and junk food. The
adventure begins when
three middle-schoolers
nd a discarded sofa at
their bus stop. The couch,
part of a living room set
equipped with articial
intelligence, recruits them
for a mission to rescue
the world. When the kids
meet their rst alien, they
cant decide if hes danger-
ous: You deliberately say
off-the-wall things, and
wear only one sock and
dress like you dont know
what century it is, because
youre trying to come
across like Willy Wonka
because you gure this
will somehow charm us
and make you our friend!
To which the alien says,
Did I overdo it? Yes,
Clark overdoes it, and its
all good.
After amid-series slump,
Gennifer Choldenko is
back with Al Capone
Does My Homework
(Dial Books for Young
Readers, $17.99, ages
10 and older), the third
(and, sadly, last) of her
books set on Alcatraz
Island in the 1930s.
Moose Flanagans father
has risen to the posi-
tion of associate prison
warden, so, in the island
hierarchy, 13-year-old
Moose is no longer quite
so subordinate to the war-
dens teenage daughter
(and mini femme fatale),
Piper. Natalie, Mooses
difcult older sister with
the unnamed condition
that readers recognize as
autism, is growing up.
The hardened prisoners
are still on the constant
lookout for a break, and
lurking behind the scenes
is the shadowy gure of
Alcatrazs most famous
inmate, Al Capone.
Choldenkos storytelling
is compelling, portraying
human decency as a force
more powerful than hero-
The literary confection
Keeping the Castle by
Patrice Kindl (Speak/
Pufn Books, $16.99,
ages 12 and older) might
be termed Jane Austen
Lite. Our heroine, Althea,
has no illusions about her
responsibilities: Its up
to her to marry well, or
Crooked Castle, the decay-
ing pile of rocks that is her
family home, may fall to
wrack and ruin for want
of funds. Kindl wittily
illuminates the threadbare
state of Crooked Castle as
well as the social rules of
Regency England when
Lady Throstletwist stands
up from her rickety chair
to take leave after tea:
Her chair shuddered and
then slowly collapsed into a
sad little splintered heap on
the oor. Being extremely
well bred, she sailed on out
through the door without
a backwards glance at this
small disaster.

Wishing you were some-
one other than who you

TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
This is the kind of day in
which older Taurus people
lament the innocent, aim-
less, meandering youth
thats behind them, while
younger ones fantasize
about the freedoms of
adult life.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).
Wanting to be your best
is an admirable desire,
and yet there is a point at
which constant improve-
ment may be a form of
self-rejection. Take a break
from improving, and like
yourself as is.

Theres a fine line between
the heavy load that builds
your muscles and the one

Remember that this is not
a trap. You can step off

any moment.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).
Just because someone

The human mind loves a

Everyone has different

it would be an even

available to you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Maybe youre just being
picky, but when it comes

youd like to know the real

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).

Dear Abby:
My husband
is 99 percent
with primary
MS. My old-
est son is bipolar (hes off his
meds and doing great), and
my youngest son has Asperg-
ers. I know ... wow.
My husband refuses to
even try to understand the
boys. When they have behav-
ior problems, he tells them
if he could, he would back-
hand them. Great parenting,
huh? But at the same time,
the boys and I are expected
to have our lives revolve
around his disability and
stop everything when he
needs help. His MS is always
top priority.
I hate watching him go
through his disease, but does
that give him a free pass to
bully our boys? I realize the
boys have issues that are dif-
ficult to deal with, and Im
not giving them a free pass,
either, but I feel like Im
stuck between a rock and a
hard place. If I support my
sons, Im a bad wife. If I sup-
port my husband, Im a bad
mom. And not to sound
selfish who supports ME?
Im not really expecting
any answers, but needed to
vent, for lack of better termi-
nology. I do have a support
system of extended family
and friends, but sometimes
the lack of support inside the
house makes me crazy. Any
words of wisdom, Abby?
Stretched Thin in
Dear Stretched Thin: You
have a right to vent. Youre
carrying an enormous load
on your shoulders right
now. I wish you wouldnt
label yourself as a bad
ANYTHING because you are
just a mortal woman who is
trying to cope. Your husband
is understandably bitter and
frustrated and sometimes
takes it out on those closest
to him you and the boys.
His MS IS top priority be-
cause hes incapacitated and
it HAS to be.
Your boys need to under-
stand the importance of not
stressing out their father. Im
glad your older son is doing
well off medication, IF thats
OK with his doctor. But
its my understanding that
people with a chemical im-
balance need to stay on their
meds to maintain their equi-
librium. As to your younger
son, people with Aspergers
may have problems with
their social interactions, but
they can be taught rules of
acceptable behavior. Perhaps
its time to work a little
harder on that.
As to your own needs,
believe me, I sympathize. If
you need to vent, its impor-
tant for your sanity that you
be able to do so. Its wonder-
ful that you have extended
family and friends to support
you, but if at all possible,

Besides water and sun-

NEW YORK The game
took 21 minutes. It lasted 30
Novak Djokovic squandered
ve break points and lost that
instant classic of a game but
made Stanislas Wawrinka pay
an awfully heavy price.
After dropping the epic third
game of the nal set Saturday,
Djokovic broke the next time
Wawrinka served, then didnt fal-
ter once he had the lead. The top-
seeded Serb withstood a 4-hour,
9-minute onslaught of Wawrinkas
massive groundstrokes to pull out
a 2-6, 7-6 (4), 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory
and advance to his fourth straight
nal at the U.S. Open.
Well, I was thinking I
guess everybody was thinking
Whoever wins this game
is going to win the match,
Djokovic said. After he won the
game, I thought to myself, OK,
I guess I have to ght against
those odds.
He did, to improve to 20-7 in
ve-set matches, and now the
2011 champion will go for his
second U.S. Open title Monday
against No. 2 Rafael Nadal, who
had a much easier time in a 6-4,
7-6 (1), 6-2 victory over eighth-
seeded Richard Gasquet.
It will be the third Nadal-
Djokovic nal at Flushing

the only break coming last year
when Nadal was out with a knee

Nadal won easily despite
dropping his rst service game
of the tournament. He had
extended his streak to 73 when
Gasquet broke him in the fourth
game of the second set. Both
men held until a second-set tie-
breaker, which Nadal won 7-1 to
end what little drama existed in
the afternoons second match.
Fans certainly got their mon-
eys worth in the rst one.
I managed to nd my way
through, to adjust, and to win,
Djokovic said. Thats what
His victory will be remem-
bered mostly for a game he
lost the third game of the
nal set, a back-and-forth roller
coaster ride in which Djokovic
had ve opportunities to break
for a 2-1 lead and lost them all.
Ninth-seeded Wawrinka
had eight game points. Before
the last, he gestured to the
crowd to pump up the vol-
ume. Sensing the opportunity,
Djokovic hammed it up, as well.
Wawrinka followed that well-
deserved break in the action
with a 123-mph service winner
up the middle.

was jacked up, Penn
State coach Bill OBrien
said. I was reminded
by one of the assistant
coaches, again, this is
his rst game in Beaver
Stadium. You can take
5,000 recruiting trips
here, but it isnt like play-
ing here.
Way different,
Hackenberg said with a
Easier to laugh about
it after a game like this.
Hackenberg nished
23-of-33 for 311 yards
and a touchdown to help
offset a pair of early turn-
overs. The old rookie
passing record was 280
yards, which Zack Mills
hit twice in 2001 as a red-
shirt freshman.
Hackenberg admitted
he was a little shocked
at how much the grav-
ity of his rst home
opener affected him. It
was never more apparent
than on his third drive of
the game when the ball
simply slipped out of his
hand without being hit.
The unforced turnover
was an easy scoop-and-
score for Eastern and a
surprising 7-0 lead.
OBrien, who said lit-
tle on the sideline to his
quarterback immediately
after his two intercep-
tions last week, sensed
that he needed to step in
for a chat this time.
He just told me to
calm down, Hackenberg
said. Its just, Next play.
Thats how I approached
it, and offensively as a
whole, thats how we
approached it. And we
had a couple very good
drives after that.
This was his rst
game, OBrien said. He
was amped up. I thought
he, obviously, settled
down pretty well. I think
its pretty easy to see hes
a hard working kid. He
has talent.
It showed when he
answered the fumble with
a 43-yard strike to Allen
Robinson to set up the
Lions rst score. Other
than a second-quarter
interception that the
Eagles (1-1) ripped away
from Brandon Felder,
Hackenberg and a much-
improved running game
took care of business.
For all of Hackenbergs
early nerves, it didnt
show in the huddle.
Ill tell you something
about Christian hes
really not a guy who
wears his emotions on
his sleeve, senior center
Ty Howle said. He keeps
them back, and thats
what good quarterbacks
Hes very condent,
hes poised and he played
The bomb to Robinson
seemed to get the entire
offense into rhythm as
both Zwinak and Belton
found the end zone
before halftime as the
Lions took a 17-7 lead
into the break.
Zwinak scored again in
the third and the offense
really tore into a tir-
ing Eagles defense in
the fourth. Hackenberg
stepped up and hit
Robinson for a 45-yard
score and Belton went 51
yards to paydirt on the
next drive.
Lynch closed out the
day with an 18-yard
touchdown as he and
Tyler Ferguson led the
second-team offense into
the end zone.
Led by Glenn Carson
and DaQuan Jones, the
Lions defense smothered
the Eagles, never letting
them climb back into the
Its still a work in
progress, said OBrien,
who reversed last sea-
sons 0-2 start. We have
to execute better, espe-
cially at the beginning of
the game.
But its a lot of fun to
coach this group. Its a
resilient football team.
We told them that we won
the day today, we have to
try to win the day tomor-
row. Just try to get better
every single day.

On the day No. 22 was scheduled to be retired in honor of John Cappelletti, Akeel Lynch paid tribute
by rushing for 108 yards and a touchdown, celebrating after the score with good friend Eugene Lewis.
Cappelletti receives historic honor
John Cappelletti already
owned one unique accom-
plishment in Penn States
127 years of football. On
Saturday, he added anoth-
The Nittany Lions rst
and only Heisman Trophy
winner became their rst
player to have his number
retired. Cappelletti was
presented with a framed
No. 22 jersey at halftime
as part of a 40th anniver-
sary celebration of his
undefeated 1973 squad.
In all the years that
this school has been here
and all the players that
have gone through here,
for me to be the one to get
his jersey retired is just
unbelievable, Cappelletti
said. Its hard to compre-
hend right now.
Cappelletti said the
retirement was an idea
pitched to him by athletic
director Dave Joyner. It
took Cappelletti, who
won the Heisman after
that 12-0 campaign in
1973, some time to warm
up to it.
Last week was prob-
ably one of the more mis-
erable weeks of my life
thinking about this the
whole time, Cappelletti
said. Now its great. Its
just such a nice thing.
Hopefully its meaningful
to the fans and the school
and we have a number
retired now.
Lions coach Bill
OBrien was in favor of
the shift in tradition.
I dont make those
decisions, but Im very
supportive of it, OBrien
said. I think its a high
bar. I think you have to
win the Heisman to get
your number retired at
Penn State.
Another running back,
redshirt freshman Akeel
Lynch currently wears 22.
After the game, Cappelletti
addressed a victorious
Lions locker room and
asked Lynch to stand up in
front with him.
We want you to wear
this jersey the rest of your
career here, Cappelletti
said. When youre done
with it, I want it back!
That sent the room into
laughter and had Lynch
still smiling some 30 min-
utes later.
That, Lynch beamed,
was really amazing.
Lynch will be the last
player to wear the num-
ber, which also belonged to
Evan Royster, the programs
all-time leading rusher.
Team equipment man-
ager/historian Spider
Caldwell, emphasizing
the history of the num-
ber, was the one who sug-
gested Lynch wear No. 22
when he arrived on cam-
pus last summer.
Then I looked it up
Evan Royster, Cappelletti,
all these greats wore it,
Lynch said. So I took it.
And every time I put it
on, I remember the guys
before me.
Lynch did them proud
on Saturday, getting his
rst career carry, his rst
career touchdown and
his rst career 100-yard

sprained his knee early in
last weeks game against
With fellow linebacker
Ben Kline (shoulder) also
in street clothes, senior
safety Stephen Obeng-
Agyapong again stepped
up into a starting spot at
outside linebacker.
OBrien said both Hull
and Kline were ne and
should be able to return
for next weeks game
against UCF.
Tight end Kyle Carter
(arm) was considered
day-to-day but played
with a heavy black wrap
on his left arm. Carter
nished with two catches
for 16 yards.
During the game, the
Lions lost junior safety
Ryan Keiser early in the
rst quarter after a hit
left him woozy on the
sideline. OBrien did not
have an update on his sta-
tus Saturday.

worth took over Keisers

Ficken sets a record
Because of that,
Butterworth got to be a
part of history as he held
a record-breaking kick by
Sam Ficken.
Ficken hit a 39-yard
eld goal late in the
rst half to give him 14
straight makes, breaking
the record held by Craig
Fayak since 1992.
The milestone came in
Week 2 of 2013. In Week
2 of 2012, Ficken had
missed four eld goals
and an extra point in a
one-point loss to Virgina,
making this a particularly
special moment for the
Pretty cool, Ficken
smiled. I actually didnt
know until running into
halftime. One of the doc-
tors told me I had the
most consecutive eld
goals, so that was a nice
Geno watch
A week after scoring his
rst career touchdown,
Eugene Lewis nished
with one catch for 5 yards
against Eastern Michigan,
hauling in a pass from
Tyler Ferguson in the
fourth quarter. He now has
three grabs for 66 yards
and a score on the season.
Lewis did however get
his rst action on special
teams, lining up as a kick
returner twice and eld-

for returns of 19 and 25

EMU Hunter Matt 11-yard fumble
return (Dylan Mulder kick), 4:01. Analy-
sis: Making his frst start at an NFL sta-
dium didnt seem to bother Christian
Hackenberg. But the Lions quarterback
looked every bit like a true freshman on
his frst three drives at Beaver Stadium.
After starting 1-for-5 because of some
jittery overthrows, things get worse for
the rookie on the third drive. Hacken-
berg simply drops the ball going back
for a pass, gift-wrapping an easy touch-
down for the Eagles. Matt gets credit
for a sack and has no issues scooping
up the loose ball and stunning the Penn
State partisans with a defensive touch-
StAtE 0.
PSU Zach Zwinak 2-yard run (Sam
Ficken kick), 1:41. Drive: 6 plays, 67
yards, 2:14. Analysis: Bill OBrien isnt
about to shackle his freshman quar-
terback because of a poor start. After
handing Eastern Michigan a touchdown,
Hackenberg comes out fring on the
next drive, placing a well-thrown deep
ball to Allen Robinson, who lays out
for a 43-yard catch thats upheld by a
replay review. That sets up the Lions
frst rushing score of the season after
Robinson draws a pass interference fag
in the end zone. Zwinak rumbles of right
tackle and drives a defender backward
at the goal line for the touchdown. EMU
7, PSU 7.
PSU Bill Belton 5-yard run (Ficken
kick), 14:08. Drive: 6 plays, 68 yards,
1:02. Analysis: That didnt take long.
Hackenberg manages to fnd his sea
legs to command a productive drive out
of OBriens no-huddle NASCAR pack-
age. Looking much calmer, Hackenberg
connects with Matt Zanellato and Jesse
James for big gains to set up a pair of
nice runs by Belton, the frst of right
tackle and the second up the middle
for the score, making a man miss. Its
Beltons frst rushing score in Beaver
Stadium after scoring on a swing pass
in last years home opener. He had three
touchdowns last October against Iowa
but spent much of November on the
sideline. PSU 14, EMU 7.
PSU Ficken 39-yard feld goal, 0:17.
Drive: 8 plays, 67 yards, 1:55. Analysis: A
year ago this week, Sam Ficken was be-
ing tormented by fans on social media
after missing four kicks and an extra
point in a one-point loss at Virginia. One
year later, the junior set a new Penn
State record for consecutive made
feld goals. Ficken connects on his 14th
straight, dating back to last season.
The kick breaks a record set by Craig
Fayak, who hit 13 in a row in the 1992
season. He almost didnt get the chance
to attempt it as Hackenberg missed a
wide-open Richy Anderson earlier in
the two-minute drill, which was also
derailed by back-to-back holding fags.
PSU 17, EMU 7.
PSU Zwinak 7-yard run (Ficken
kick), 2:09. Drive: 6 plays, 33 yards, 2:27.
Analysis: Sluggish on ofense to start
the second half, the Lions defense cre-
ates great feld position to set up Zwi-
naks second score of the day. A sack by
defensive tackle DaQuan Jones brings
up a punt that gives the Lions the ball
at the Eagles 33. Hackenberg is sacked
twice, but Zwinak gains 20 yards on
third-and-24 to convince Bill OBrien to
keep the ofense on the feld for fourth
down. Hackenberg hits Brandon Felder
out in the left fat for the conversion and
Zwinak rumbles of of left tackle on the
very next play for the score. PSU 24,
EMU 7.
PSU Allen Robinson 45-yard pass
from Christian Hackenberg (Ficken
kick), 12:25. Drive: 6 plays, 84 yards,
2:29. Analysis: For the second straight
week, Hackenberg shows of both the
mistakes and the promise that comes
from raw talent. This one falls into the
latter category as he avoids pressure by
stepping way up in the pocket, stopping
before hitting the line of scrimmage and
launching a deep ball to a wide-open
Robinson for the score. The throw gave
Hackenberg the school record for pass-
ing yards in a game by a freshman. PSU
31, EMU 7.
PSU Belton 51-yard run (Ficken
kick), 9:47. Drive: 4 plays, 83 yards, 1:13.
Analysis: And its good night for the
Eagles, who are thoroughly worn down
by this point. With OBrien getting an
extended look at both Belton and Akeel
Lynch in the backfeld, both get their op-
portunities to shine. Belton breaks of
the longest run of his career, hitting a
huge hole in the middle of the line and
fnding nothing but grass between him
and the end zone. The touchdown gives
him his frst career 100-yard game. PSU
38, EMU 7.
PSU Akeel Lynch 18-yard run (Fick-
en kick), 4:26. Drive: 7 plays, 77 yards,
3:28. Analysis: Not to be outdone, Lynch
and quarterback Tyler Ferguson lead the
second team ofense into the end zone
for one last touchdown. On the same
day that the No. 22 Lynch shares with
John Cappelletti was scheduled to be
retired, the redshirt freshman does the
number proud. Its Lynchs frst career
score and it gives him 100 yards on the
ground to boot. PSU 45, EMU 7.
For good reason.
The games seem to change
when the Lions throw deep for
Take Penn States 45-7 vic-
tory over Eastern Michigan, for
With the Lions trailing 7-0
Saturday and the offense stag-
gering a bit late in the rst quar-
ter, Robinson came up with a
diving 43-yard catch that replay
conrmed putting the ball
eight yards from the goal line.
Two plays later, they crossed it
to tie the game.
That was a big condence-
builder for me, Penn State quar-
terback Christian Hackenberg,
who went on to set a Lions fresh-
man record with 311 passing
yards, said of Robinsons all-out
And later, Robinson needed
just one play to put the game
out of reach, snagging a 45-yard
touchdown catch in stride to lift
the Lions to a 31-7 lead early in
the fourth quarter.
I just try to make plays when
my numbers called, Robinson,
a junior from Southeld, Mich.,
said. The play was there.
Hes just happy he got to play
from the start this time.
Robinson was forced to sit out
the rst half of last weeks season
opener at Syracuse, due to dis-
ciplinary action taken by head
coach Bill OBrien for reasons
the coach and his players insist-
ed on keeping private.
It was a learning experience, I
guess, not being able to play the
rst half and help my teammates
out, was all Robinson said about
the matter.
In the process, Penn State
learned a lesson, too.
The Lions are a much more
explosive team with Robinson
lining up on the eld than when
hes standing on the sideline.
That became obvious when
Robinson hit the huddle for the
start of the second half last week,
and needed just two plays to pro-
duce the games rst touchdown
during a victory over Syracuse.
The rst was his 25-yard catch
on Penn States rst snap of
the third quarter. That was fol-
lowed by Robinsons 51-yard
touchdown grab, when he beat
the defense so badly he stopped
his route, plucked a low throw
before it hit the ground and still
raced untouched into the end
That followed a 2012 season
when Robinson broke onto the
college scene with a team-leading
77 catches for 1,042 yards and 11
touchdown catches including
long-distance bombs of 53, 30
and 26 yards that reached the
end zone and a pair of 45-yard
grabs against Navy.
He is better, Lions assistant
head coach and wide receivers
coach Stan Hixon said. And hes
getting better every day.
The best way to see that is to
watch opposing defenses.
Well try to throw up some
deep balls, Hixon explained.
Were going to stretch the eld
because we have some guys who
can run, speed-wise. Some of the
guys were coming open. Theyre
going to roll the coverage toward
Allen, and other guys are going
to get more catches.
Its word just as Penn State
drew it up.
While Robinson led the team
with seven catches Saturday, fel-
low Penn State receiver Brandon
Moseby-Felder nished with
six grabs and four other Lions
caught two passes apiece.
On his game-deciding touch-
down catch last week, red-shirt
freshman receiver and former
Wyoming Valley West star
Eugene Lewis credited Robinson
with drawing away some of the
coverage and leaving him open
for a 54-yard scoring strike in a
23-17 victory over Syracuse.
Ive made a few plays, so right
now Im the guy theyre rolling
(more coverage) to, Robinson
said. But I could see them roll-
ing to (Brandon Mosby-)Felder,
Jesse James, Eugene Lewis.
Richy Anderson had a couple
catches today. Some teams cover
me differently on some plays. We
have other guys. We have a lot of
None of that bothers him,
even if extra defenders watching
Robinson could mean less passes
coming his way and less of
an opportunity to latch onto the
Being able to make a play
downeld helps us. I wouldnt
say thats my primary feeling,
Robinson said. I think its just
kind of understanding a route,
maybe just get us down the eld
and get us into scoring position.
For Penn State, there are no
quicker routes to the end zone
than the ones going Robinsons
Just throw it long and watch
him soar.

Miami latest ACC teamto beat SEC foe
The Associated Press
Miami made it two
big victories for the
Atlantic Coast Conference
against the Southeastern
Conference in the rst two
weeks of the college foot-
ball season.
The Hurricanes beat mis-
take-prone No. 12 Florida
21-16 on Saturday. Add
that to Clemsons victory
against Georgia and the
ACC can come away feeling
good about its early season
showing against the league
that has won the last seven
national championships.
Ultimately, it was a split
of four spotlight match-
ups. No. 1 Alabama beat
Virginia Tech handily and
South Carolina whipped
North Carolina in the open-
ing weekend of the season.
But considering all the
grief the ACC generally
takes for not being able
to stand up to the mighty
SEC, .500 is looking solid.
How about that ACC?
Spunky little old league?
Clemson coach Dabo
Swinney said after his
Tigers had an easy follow-
up victory against South
Carolina State on Saturday.
Miami needed a lot of
help from Florida.
The Gators had ve

Stephen Morris threw a
couple of TD passes and
the Hurricanes held on.

Thomas ran for 124 yards
and three touchdowns,
Marcus Mariota threw for
two touchdowns and ran
71 yards for another score,
and Oregon started fast
and completely manhan-
dled Virginia.
The Ducks (2-0), who
gained a school-record 772
yards last week in beat-
ing Nicholls State, looked
capable of doing it again
against a Virginia defense
that hoped to keep the
Cavaliers in the game.
Oregon nished with 557
yards and did all its scor-
ing while possessing the
ball for just 21:25.
Virginia (1-1) got an
early look at what it was
up against as Mariota
dropped back on a third-
and-5 on the opening
series, then bolted up the
middle untouched, going
71 yards for a touchdown.
After 1:51, the Ducks

Coming off a 38-35 loss
at Clemson, Georgia could
not afford another defeat if
it wanted to remain a seri-
ous contender for a nation-
al title.
Murray took care of
that, turning in one of the
best games of his career
and shaking off his repu-
tation as a quarterback
who couldnt win the big
game. The fth-year senior
capped his stellar day for
the Bulldogs (1-1, 1-0 SEC)
with an 85-yard touchdown

The difculty in having a
young football team is mea-
suring success. It doesnt
always come in the form of
a victory.
Thats the message Dallas
coach Bob Zaruta wanted to
convey Saturday afternoon
after his Mountaineers
were shut out for a second
consecutive game, this time
17-0 by defending District
2 Class 3A champion
Abington Heights.
We made a big improve-
ment from last week, said
Zaruta, whose team lost
40-0 to Wyoming Valley
West in its opener. We were
much more disciplined with
our defense and it showed.
Again, it was against a qual-
ity football team thats well
Abington (2-0) scored on
its rst possession of the
game but not again until
past the midway point of the
third quarter. Dallas (0-2)
fell victim to the pass both
times as J.C. Show hooked
up with Nate Hollander for
a 28-yard touchdown in the
rst, and the duo struck
again at 4:14 of the third on
a 55-yard pass play.
Hes a leader on the foot-
ball eld, Abington coach
Joe Repshis said of Show.
He has great poise, great
eld presences. He has
experience you cant simu-
late. Hes doing a great
job for us.
Show, who has verbally
committed to play basket-
ball at Bucknell, nished
14-of-17 for 206 yards.
Hollander grabbed eight
passes for 167 yards. The
combo was the Comets big-
gest asset and Dallas big-
gest nemesis. Besides the
touchdowns, ve of their
other connections resulted
in rst downs.
(It was) a few big plays
for the most part, Zaruta
said. They were able to
drive the football, but there
was a lot of heart in that last
series right there to keep
them out of the end zone.
Zaruta was referring to
Abingtons last possession
of the game, aside from a
couple kneel downs to end
the contest. The Comets
went on a 14-play, clock-
grinding drive where the
Mountaineers held after
facing a rst-and-goal at
their 4-yard line. Abington
tacked on a eld goal
As for Dallas offense, it
labored for a majority of the
game. Quarterback Justin
Mucha led the rushing
attack with 43 tough yards.
The Mountaineers moved
into the redzone once, with
the penetration coming late
in the second quarter. A
penalty and three plays for
negative yardage resulted in
a long eld goal falling well
The Mountaineers also
put together a solid drive
after Abington went up
14-0 in the third. Muchas
running along with passes
to fullback Mike Olegenski,
wideout Chris Behm
and running back Logan
Brace moved the ball to
the Abington 23. A pair of
sacks, though, quelled the
scoring threat.

For the Times Leader
Nick Long managed to get
a foot down to stay in the
end zone just long enough
twice in the rst 17 min-
utes Saturday afternoon.
The Northwest junior
then got out of the end
zone in a hurry after
catching the ball midway
through the third quarter.
Longs two touchdown
catches put the Rangers
in front and his end-zone
interception kept them
there in a 12-7 victory over
host Susquehanna.
I thought it wasnt
going to be as close as it
was, Long said after help-
ing the Rangers dominate
early while building a 12-0
lead. But, we still pulled it
A wins a win. All we
have to do is keep improv-
The Rangers escaped
with a win by turning
away the Sabers after
they reached the 18 with a
chance to go ahead in the
third quarter.
Long made a quick move
on a misred pass, inter-
cepting in the end zone
while running forward,
then bringing the ball out
to the 17.
The Sabers never moved
across mideld again while
gaining just one second-
half rst down against a
bigger, stronger Rangers
The defense was
impressive, said Matt
Zlotek, who was in the
second of his two games
as acting head coach for
Northwest while Carl
Majer served a suspension
for the use of an ineligible
player last season.
The strength upfront
was also a factor offensive-
ly when Northwest racked
up statistical advantages
of 9-0 in rst downs, 126-9
in rushing yards and 178-
12 in total offense over the
rst 16:12 for the 12-point
Austin Mazonkey, who
nished with 173 yards
on 29 carries, was already
over 100 yards rushing at
that point. Mazonkey took
on an extra workload with
James Burger slowed by a
minor injury.
Austins a tough run-
ner, Zlotek said. He
knows where to run and he
runs over people.
The teams played on
nearly even terms the rest
of the way as Susquehanna
made a run at getting rst-
year coach Kyle Cook his
rst win.
Northwest scored on
two of its rst three pos-
Mazonkey had runs of
12, 13 and 27 yards to set
up Longs 15-yard touch-
down catch from Logan
Womelsdorf. Long was
wide open behind two
defenders in the right, back
of the end zone and just
had to be sure to secure the
ball while getting one foot
down in-bounds.
The second score came
on fourth-and-six from the
8 in the second quarter
when Womelsdorf lobbed
a pass to the back, left cor-
ner of the end zone over
a defender. Long went up
in the air and came down
with the ball for the touch-
It was over his head,
said Long, who caught six
passes for 62 yards. I real-
ly didnt think I was going
to stay in-bounds because
it was pretty far back, but
I got one foot down.
Susquehanna answered
with a 60-yard scoring
drive in which Austin
White carried four times
for 27 yards and completed
three passes. The touch-
down came when Austin
Darrow pulled in a 17-yard-
er while falling to his back
after tipping the ball up in
the air twice.
Its frustrating to be 0-2
when weve had a chance to
win the game both weeks,
Cook said.
Northwest has won
twice by a total of nine
points while Susquehanna
has suffered a pair of ve-
point losses.

Kerr hits jackpot to lock up Royals win
ask Eric Kerr for winning
lottery numbers Saturday?
The rst ones a nine,
he joked, referring to his
uniform number.
The Holy Redeemer
senior told his coach he
was going to take an inter-
ception for a touchdown on
the next play and he did
to seal the Royals 44-20
victory over Holy Cross on
Saturday afternoon at St.
Anthonys Playground.
Kerr scored twice in 53
seconds, nding the end
zone on a 38-yard screen
pass in the right at from
Jimmy Strickland where
Kerr came back around
play and raced down the
left sideline for the score.
I need a play, coach.
Free safety, Kerr said,
hunched over on the side-
line, battling illness and
promising a pick six
when he got back on the
Kerr got his one-play
break, on a snap wiped out
by offsetting penalties. He
returned to the secondary
and sprung to the ball after
an Eric Gatto pass had
been tipped. Kerr caught it
and landed on the mideld
stripe, then raced to the
end zone to put the game
out of reach.
Holy Redeemer (1-1)
trailed 8-6 at halftime
despite being favored
by many. A pair of turn-
overs by the Royals and
the ground game of the
Crusaders (0-2) kept the
contest close. But as Holy
Cross returned a punt into
Holy Redeemer territory
in the nal minute of the
rst half, the Crusaders
day was changed in the
worst way.
Leading rusher Andrew
Mies (16 rushes, 74 yards,
touchdowns and two-point
run) collapsed on the side-
line and had to be tended
to by paramedics. After a
long stoppage, a woman
cried out from the huddle
around the senior, Cant
we get him in the ambu-
lance and go? He needs to
We didnt actually see
what was going on at rst,
Reese said. Were sorry
about what happened and
hope hell be OK.
The remaining 25 sec-
onds of the half were
scrubbed and the teams
waited out a 42-minute
halftime while another
ambulance arrived on
scene. When action
resumed, Holy Cross was
without Mies and fresh-
man Josh Mies, who left
the facility during the
After last week, were
used to delays now, Reese
said of the lengthy break.
We were in the locker
room for two hours last
week (because of a weath-
er delay). We sat until
what? 11:30 last Saturday?
We might have been
looking ahead to Old
Forge a bit. This is the
Super Bowl for both
teams. Holy Cross hit us
with their best shot in the
rst half.
While Robert Torrey
and Tom Ware proved
capable replacements in
the Holy Cross backeld,
the Royals had regrouped.
Their run game, led by Pat
Villani and Charles Ross,
piled up 85 yards and two
touchdowns in the third
quarter. In the fourth
quarter, Strikland threw
two touchdown passes to
cap an efcient 13-for-16
The quarterback had

We did pretty well get-
ting our running game
going, Reese said of a
ground attack that aver-
aged 5.1 yards per carry.
Pat Villani and Charles
Ross had some very good
runs for us. People know
us for our passing game.
If we can run the ball on
people, were going to run

Grenadiers left
in Buckleys wake
Dunmore running back
Daiqwon Buckley took
the handoff, darted up the
middle, cut left and sifted
through several GARdefend-
ers for a 35-yard touchdown
and the 4,000th rushing yard
of his career.
Then he started working
his way toward 5,000.
GARcouldnt stop the star
runner as Buckley carried 17
times for 271 yards and four
touchdowns in Dunmores
48-7 victory Saturday night
at Wilkes-Barre Memorial
What made Buckleys
numbers even more impres-
sive is that GAR (0-2) actu-
ally shut him down on his
rst three carries. Those
rushes yielded just 4 yards.
But the Grenadiers knew it
was going to be difcult to
keep that up.
They ended up getting to
the outside, and we werent
wrapping and tackling like
we should have, GAR coach
Paul Wiedlich Jr. said. We
saw a great back tonight, a
heck of a runner. Played his
rear end off. Thats why hes
one of the best running backs
in the state.
Buckley had a 14-yard TD
run late in the rst quarter.
He added his record-setting
35-yard touchdown run at
8:06 of the second quarter
before racing 73 yards for a
score to close out the rst
half and give Dunmore (2-0)
a 28-7 lead.
Week 1, we came out a lit-
tle sloppy and I wasnt really
feeling myself, said Buckley,
who has made ofcial visits
to UConn and Rutgers. In
Week 2, I knew I had to step
it up.
To be honest with you,
(the record) wasnt even in
my head. I had no idea, and
it shocked me when they
announced it on the loud
While Buckley was run-
ning for 200 yards in the rst
half, GAR was able to move
the ball with some success
as well. But three turnovers
hampered any momen-
tum, and the Grenadiers
only touchdown came on
an 87-yard punt return by
Anthony Maurent early in
the second quarter. Even that
came with some anxiety as
Maurent initially mishandled
the ball.
We cant put the ball on
the ground, Wiedlich said.
In the rst half, we had a
couple nice drives and we
ended up putting the ball on
the ground two times. We
cant do that. We have to get
back to basics on Monday,
and it all starts with ball
GAR had less success in
the second half, managing
just 32 of its 151 total yards.
The Grenadiers also had a
punt blocked and returned
for a touchdown.
Maurent paced GARs run-
ning game with 51 yards on
14 carries. Rashaun Mathis
threw for 65 more.
Dunmore nally reached
the 35-point mercy rule
with 7:07 to play on Tyaire
Quillers 1-yard run. The

rushing on 37 carries.

Late Kings comeback falls 2 points short
For The Times Leader
only tting Mick Paye pulled down
a last-minute onside-kick attempt
on a relatively-friendly bounce from
the McCarthy Stadium turf.
The William Paterson senior
wide receiver did everything else.
Paye pulled in almost 100 yards
on four passes in the second half,
and the Pioneers had to withstand
a furious Kings College rally in the
nal nine minutes in a 21-19 vic-
It was the fth straight win for
Paterson over Kings as the last
four games have been decided by
just 21 points.
(Kings head coach) Jeff (Knarr)
has done a nice job with his team,
WP head coach Jerry Flora said.
This has been a battle the last ve
years with them. Last year was a
nail biter. This year was a nail biter.
We have to work on the little mis-
takes. I told the team that the two-
point stop and the hands play on
the kick were the two biggest plays
of this game. Thats what winning
teams have to do. If you want to be
good, those are the things you have
to do.
Kings, down 21-7, scored two
touchdowns in the nal 9:08
which would have been good
enough to knot the game under
normal circumstances.
The problem was an extra
point was blocked after Judens
Goimberts 3-yard run; a play where
it appeared the Monarchs only had
10 men on the eld.
After stufng the Pioneers on
the ensuing drive, the Monarchs
took the ball at the 18 with about
two minutes left and put together
a monumental drive that included
converting a third-and-10, and a
fourth-and-1. It was a beautiful
touch pass from Tyler Hartranft
that oated over the outstretched
hand of a William Paterson defend-
er and hit Josh Sanders in stride for
the 40-yard score.
Needing the two-point conver-
sion, Kings went for the tie but
Hartranft couldnt nd an open
Im proud of the kids, Knarr
said. Our backs were against the
wall, and they didnt quit. We found
a way to get the two scores, but we
just came up short on the two-point
conversion. I think our kids believe
they can stay in and win football
games. We worked hard to try and
nd a way to win.
The Monarchs (0-1) were right
there, taking an early lead on a Kyle
McGrath 5-yard run, and found
themselves knotted at the break.
It was a span of about 20 minutes
in the second half where William
Paterson took control and took
Kings out of the game.
We had some opportunities in
the third quarter and early in the
fourth that we didnt take advan-
tage of. That third quarter was
kind of ugly, and we were able
to rebound in the fourth, Knarr
said. We had one play where Josh
(Sanders) got behind the defense,
but we couldnt convert. Those are
the types of plays where we have to
make people pay. We have to work
on that to make sure we get it done
next time.
Credit that to WP seniors Paye
and quarterback Ryan Gresik, a
preseason All-American candidate.
The duo hooked up three sepa-
rate times on the Pioneers rst
drive of the second half includ-
ing a 50-yard strike downeld, a
timely conversion on third down,
and nally, a Paye diving catch in
the end zone as the Pioneers had
their rst lead, 14-7, early in third
William Paterson (1-0) increased
the lead to two scores early in the
fourth quarter, stringing together
a six-play, 47-yard drive that took
a little more than two minutes.
The capper was Gresiks third TD
toss of the afternoon, this time a
15-yard strike to Nickolas Burke.
Paye did some good things, and
we expect some good things from
him, Flora said. Its a collective
effort on offense, but its obvious
that we have some things to x.
The Monarchs offense looked
sharp, especially in the nal nine
minutes converting three third-
down chances and three fourth-
down opportunities to keep drives
Kings nished with more total
yards than William Paterson as
Dan Kempa had 105 yards receiv-
ing, and McGrath nished just six
yards short of the century mark.

Kings College running back Kyle McGrath (32) dives into the end zone for a first half
touchdown as Robert Prince of William Paterson defends during a game Saturday
afternoon in Wilkes-Barre Twp.
really focus on being the peo-
ple who control the game.
With so many running backs
that can do so much it gives
everyone a break. Having
everyone fresh every time
they come in for a series is
While Martin led the
team in carries and yards,
Bernsten added 65 yards
and a TD on the ground, Pat
Inguilli ran for 57 and a score
and Calvin Garvin picked up
39 yards.
The four players also
helped the Colonels have one
of the best opening games in
school history. The 41 points
are the most the Colonels
have scored in an opener
since piling up 55 in 2003. It
was also just the third time
in school history theyve
scored more than 40 in the
rst game of the season, and
marks consecutive games
the team has racked up 40
or more dating back to a win
over Kings to end the 2012
I was very pleased with
how we established the line
of scrimmage on offense,
Wilkes coach Frank Sheptock
said. Going into the season
thats what we wanted our
MO to be. Get on the backs
of the seniors and experience
and we have a stable of backs
that can get the job done.
It wasnt all easy for the
Colonels (1-0) as Morrisville
gave them ts in the rst
half as quarterback Lemar
Johnson ran the no-huddle,
read-option offense to per-
fection. Johnson, who wasnt
on the teams roster in 2012
but ran a lot in 2011 for the
team, held the ball just long
enough to catch the Wilkes
defense off-guard whether he
was passing or holding on to
the ball and rushing. He ran
for just 27 yards, but threw
for 321 and both of his TDs
came in the rst half helping
the Mustangs stay within
one point of the Colonels at
halftime, 21-10.
We didnt think we were
going to see as much of the
zone read and then that con-
trolled passing game that I
think hurt us a lot in the rst
half, Sheptock added. They
would get the linebackers
to jump up then drop a six-
yard ball and the six-yard ball
turns into a 12-yard gain. We
didnt expect that at all.
The Colonels, who com-
mitted six penalties for 56
yards in the rst half, includ-
ing big personal fouls lead-
ing to a couple Morrisville
scores in the rst 30 minutes,
played a cleaner second half.
And when it counted
most on defense the senior
Shuttleworth came through.
With Wilkes holding onto a
35-26 lead and the Mustangs
driving with less than 5
minutes left in the game,
Shuttleworth picked off a
pass. The Colonels scored
on their next possession
pushing the score to 41-26
with 1:54 left.
The Mustangs were still
going to try to get some
points though. And when
they did, Shuttleworth
and company answered
yet again. On a second-
and-2 play, senior Rob
Houseknecht sacked
Johnson, who fumbled and
Shuttleworth recovered to
seal the victory.
After giving up a lot of
penalties and foolish things
in the rst half, I thought
the kids responded very
well, Sheptock noted.
Shuttleworth added four
tackles to his stats, while fel-
low linebacker Tate Moore-
Jacobs tallied a game-high
14 tackles.

outlook: Dallas is always going to
be in contention for the division
and district championships and
this season will be no diferent.
Sure, the Mountaineers lost
some important pieces fromlast
years squad, but the majority of
that teamis back and looking for
another run.

Lohr, Jr.; Josh Covrrubias-
Capriotti, Fr.
outlook: Its going to be a
rebuilding season for the Cougars
as they may have only won three
times last season, but lost their
three leading scorers.

Home Field: High School

Collin Masters, Jr., GK; Tanner
MacDougall, So. (1g, 1a, 3pts)
outlook: The Black Knights
advanced to the District 2 Class
2Afnals last season and had to
settle for runner-up to Coughlin.
In a loaded classifcation once
again this season, Lehman should
be right there with the rest of the

(6g, 5a, 17pts); Nick Singer, Sr.
(10g, 7a, 27pts); DanTaren, Sr. (1a,
1pt); Derek Denman, Sr., GK
outlook: The Spartans were one
of the hottest teams heading into
the playofs last season and that
earned thema win to advance to
the D2 3Asemifnals for the frst
time in three years. There are
plenty of weapons returning for
this 2013 season that should be
able to help the teamcontinue
streaking right through the 2013

(5g, 7a, 17pts); Chris Pawlenok, Sr.
(1g, 4a, 6pts)
outlook: The Royals lost some
key players froma year ago, but
they still have the talent and
experience to compete in 2013.
Meyers (a)
Coach: Jack Nolan, 8th season
Home Field: Gibby Field, Wilkes-
2012 record: 5-11
Key players lost: Mike

1a, 5pts); Nick Sisko, Jr. (1a, 1pt);
Jarek Hernandez, So. (3g, 3a,
9pts); Excel Mendoza
outlook: The 2012 season was
defnitely a down year for the
Mohawks. But with that year
of development and playing
together out of the way, the
Mohawks should improve on last
years record and contend for the
division title.
pittston area (3a)
Coach: Pat OBoyle, 5th season
Home Field: Pittston Primary

2012 record: 5-10-1

Sr. (3g, 2a, 8pts); ColinTracy, So.
(4g, 2a, 10pts); Julian Kester, Jr. D;
Eann McCloe, Jr.
outlook: Consagra is one of the
best players in the WVCwhen
other teams dont key on him. If
hes having a big season and his
teammates are very productive
as well, the Patriots will be in
contention for the division title.
Tunkhannock (2a)
Coach: Mark Stroney, 3rd season
21st year overall
Home Field: Tewksbury Field,
Digger Drive, Tunkhannock
2012 record: 10-5-1

Jr. (5g, 7a, 17pts); Matt Dymond,
Jr. (1a, 1pt); Colton Brown, So. (9g,
4a, 22pts); Patrick Cronin, So. (2a,
outlook: It took until the fnal
match of last season for the
Tigers not to win the division title.
With many players back this time
around, Tunkhannock should be
near or at the top at the same
time in 2013.
Wyoming seminary (a)
Coach: Charles Carrick, 7th
Home Field: Mericle Field,
2012 record: 11-4-1 (division
Key players lost: Dylan
Bassham, Henry Cornell, Sami
Key players returning (with

6a, 12pts); MalcolmLumia, Jr. (6g,
2a, 14pts); Andiry Molchanov, Jr.
(11g, 3a, 25 pts)
outlook: It always seemto take
the Blue Knights a little longer
than other teams to get going to
start the season due to starting
practice later because of boarders
arriving later. Seminary was gelling
late last season, and after only
losing a fewplayers to graduation,
once the teamgets going it could
be hard to beat.
Berwick (2a)
Coach: Janet Henger, 5th season
Home Field: Crispin Field and
SalemSoccer Field, Berwick
2012 record: 10-4-1 (division
Key players lost: JulioAyala,

Klinger, Jr. (2g, 4a, 8pts); Edgar
Ramos Jr., Jr. (3g, 2a, 8pts); Josh
Moran, So. (5g, 5a, 15pts)
outlook: Coming of a division
title, the Bulldogs graduated a
lot fromthat squad. While they
appear to be in a rebuilding
season, dont count themout
just yet. If they can get going, the
Bulldogs can contend again.
Gar (2a)
Coach: LenWitczak, 4th season
Home Field: Coal Street Park,
2012 record: 4-11
Key players lost: Luke Height
Key players returning (with
2012 stats): Bre Mosier, Sr. (3g,

Oldziejewski, Jr. (5g, 10pts);
Jefrey Vergara, Jr. (2g 4pts);
Anthony Tlatenchi, Jr.; Tino
Altivalla, So., GK
outlook: The Grenadiers are
already halfway to last years win
total. So surpassing that number
shouldnt be a problemthis time
around. The next goal is a winning
season, which could lead to
brighter pastures.
Hanover area (2a)
Coach: John Nealon, 5th season
Home Field: High School
2012 record: 1-13-1
Key players lost: James
Key players returning (with
2012 stats): Matt Clemons, Sr.

Dominic Gagliardi, Sr. (2a, 2pts);
Dylan Luzny, Jr. (3g, 2a, 8pts); Paul
Roman, Sr.
outlook: Last seasons debacle
of a season has been put aside
as the Hawkeyes try to get back
to the winning side of things. It
shouldnt be hard for the team
to improve on last years record,
especially since the win and tie
have already been equaled.
MMI prep (a)
Coach:Terry Jankouskas, frst
Home Field: MMI Prep Soccer,
Baseball/Softball Fields, Cedar
Street Freeland
2012 record: 2-13

GregYannes, Casey Olszewski
Key players returning (with
2012 stats): Elijah Dove, Sr. (2g,
2a, 6pts); Austin Muir, Sr.; Mitchell
Muir, Sr.
outlook: The Prepers have
already played a close game with
defending division champion
Berwick. That appears to be a sign
that the teamis headed in the frst
direction for the 2013 season.
Nanticoke (2a)
Coach: Mark Matusek, 25th
Home Field: High School football
2012 record: 10-5

(8g,4a 20pts) Wiston Godoy, Jr.
(6g, 7a, 19pts)) Ed Lukowski, So.
(16g, 9a, 41pts)
outlook: It was a tremendous
season for the Trojans last season.
After going winless the season
prior, Nanticoke gave Berwick
a run at the division title. Some
players graduated after the
season, but with many still in the
loop, Nanticoke should be right
near the top once again.
Wyoming area (2a)

Josh Donvito, Jr. D; Nick Gushka,

Giordano, So. D; A.J. Lenkaitis, Jr. D
outlook: Theres a lot of optimism
for the Warriors this season and
for good reason. The Warriors are
returning nine starters fromlast
years teamand look to be one of
the top teams in the division this
Anewwave of players coming up this season
DaVe roseNGraNT
Plenty of familiar faces
on the boys side of the
soccer eld have gone on
to greener pastures, hav-
ing graduated from high
school last spring.
Of the 15 Times Leader
First Team All-Stars in
2012, just two are back
this season.
But there is no lack of
talent for 2013. Teams
have re-loaded, some with
fresh faces and some with
players who contributed
greatly in 2012. And the
two players who return
are good ones to have
back in Dallas senior A.J.
Nardone, who led Division
I of the Wyoming Valley
Conference in points last
season with 54 points,
and Coughlin junior Travis
Keil, who busted onto the
scene late last year helping
the Crusaders to a District
2 Class 2A title.
What the movement
means around the league
is that there will likely
be more parity. That has
shown early on this sea-
Perennial Division I
power Dallas already has
one loss and needed over-
time to pick up a victory.
Wyoming Seminary, which
won Division II last sea-
son, is already in the hole
with one loss. Its early,
but Division III has turned
upside down with GAR
unbeaten so far, while
last years basement team
in D-III, Hanover Area is
already 1-0.
Heres a look at some
stories to keep an eye on
throughout the season.
Returning Times
Leader All-Stars
A.J. Nardone, Dallas
senior: He belted 19 goals
and16 assists for a Division
I-high 54 points in 2012 to
help the Mountaineers to
the Division I champion-
ship. His assist total led
the entire conference for
the second straight season.
Over his last two season,
he has totaled 27 goals, 30
assists and 84 points.
Travis Keil, Coughlin
junior: Keil didnt put up
spectacular numbers in
his sophomore season only
scoring 19 points, includ-
ing seven goals and ve
assists, but he didnt have
to on a team loaded with
seniors. He did however
score a pair of goals for the
Crusaders in the District 2
Class 2A title match.
Returning players to
keep an eye on
This list can be 187 play-
ers long with 11 from all 17
teams listed. Thats a sign
of the parity the league can
hold in 2013.
So instead of naming all
of them and taking up a
whole newspaper page, it
was limited to a fraction of
that and just one from each
team. They are:
Tommy Sebia, Coughlin,
Sr.; Alex Buchholz,
Crestwood, Sr.; Brandon
Scharff, Dallas, Sr.; Caleb
Ancharski, Hazleton Area
(keeper); Austin Harry,
Lake-Lehman, Sr.; Nick
Singer, Wyoming Valley

GAR, Jr.; Matt Clemons,
Hanover Area, Sr.; Elijah
Dove, MMI Prep, Sr.; Ed
Lukowski, Nanticoke, So.;
Aaron Carter, Wyoming

Around Division I
It looks like a wide open
division as nearly every
team can claim the title
and it wouldnt be a sur-
Dallas has to be the
favorite because it has
won the last three division
titles and many players are
hoping to make it four.
But the other teams
are not far behind by any
Coughlin, Crestwood,
Lake-Lehman and
Wyoming Valley West have
all got off to good starts
so far in the early going.
Of course, the Crusaders
and Black Knights squared
off for the District 2
Class 2A title last year
with Coughlin the vic-
tor. Crestwood also won
a game in the 2A event,
while the Spartans went
1-1 in the 3A tourney.
Hazleton Area, which is
in a rebuilding season, may
have some trouble against
the other teams.
Around Division II
Wyoming Seminary and
Tunkhannock decided the
division championship on
the nal day of the sea-
son with the Blue Knights
coming out on top after a
The remaining three
teams Holy Redeemer,
Pittston Area and Meyers
werent far behind. Semand
the Tigers also accounted
for three of the top six scor-
ers in the division last year.
All three and four of the six
have graduated. The other
two remaining Pittston
Areas Jordan Consagra
and Meyers Cal Lisman
return to make the race for
the title much more inter-
The Royals lost some
from 2012, but recently
they always seem to stay in
contention for the length of
the season.
Around Division III
A legitimate case can be
made for all six teams in
the division to bring home
the title this season.
Berwick is the reigning
champ, and even though
its in a rebuilding year,
shouldnt be counted out
until ofcially eliminated.
Hanover Area won the pre-
vious seasons and appears
to be headed back to the
right side of the .500 mark
after winning just once last
That leaves Nanticoke
as the favorite for nishing
second in the division in
2012, ve wins better than
third-place Wyoming Area.
The Warriors are in posi-
tion to pass Nanticoke in
the standings though with
nine returning starters from
a year ago. With another
year in a second-year
coachs system, Wyoming
Area looks poised for a run.
GAR, which has won just
12 combined games in the
last three years, is off to a
good start with a pair of
wins already as they are
halfway to the 2012 total,
which includes a win over
MMI Prep rounds out
the division with the only
new coach in the confer-
ence as Terry Jankouskas
begins his rst season as
coach of the Preppers.

Game of the week
FALcons (0-0) At sAints (0-0)
Line: NO by 3
the skinny: The Game of the Week panel had a contentious
call out the gate because the real GOTWlooked like Ravens-
Broncos on Thursday night. But for the weekend we liked
this one over Giants-Cowboys, NAwlins coach Sean Payton
is back fromhis Bountygate abyss and has a 10-2 record
against Atlanta. ATL made a nice ofseason add in veteran RB
Steven Jackson, should be a season-long player in the NFC
and has a big upset shot here. But its just always a risk to
side against DrewBrees at home.
cotes pick: NO 31-27
Upset of the week
seAHAWKs (0-0) At PAntHers (0-0)
Line: SEAby 3.5
AAAWWWK! thunders the Upset Bird, soaring, serpentining,
KickofWeekend sash displayed against iridescent black
feathers. Movie sequel. Sadness in Seattle. Meg Ryaawwk!
Well be a genius or an idiot with this call. Seattle ran the
table in the preseason and Russell Wilsons bunch is a
darling Super Bowl choice. Hawks are not as mighty on the
road, though, and Panthers ended last season with four
consecutive wins, so we like this as a pure hunch pick.
cotes pick: CAR 20-17
dog of the week
cHieFs (0-0) At JAGUArs (0-0)
Line: KC by 4
Constant readers knowour Dog of the Week refers not
to a betting underdog but to the weeks least interesting
matchup, and host Jacksonville being maybe the NFLs worst
teamsort of makes this a default pick. That and these teams
combined 4-28 record in 2012. Gus Bradley makes his head
coaching debut for Jaguars, but transplanted Andy Reid has a
lot more talent to work with.
cotes pick: KC 23-20
doLPHins (0-0) At BroWns (0-0)
Line: Even
Cleveland has lost eight consecutive season openers but I
see this as a trend ripe to end and make this a venue pick
tilting to the Dawg Pounders. Sorry, Dolfans. Its nothing
personal. I think Miami is the better overall teamhere, but
Browns have much young talent and could surprise under
frst-year coach Rob Chudzinski, the former Miami Hurricane.
cotes pick: CLE 23-20
PAtriots (0-0) At BiLLs (0-0)
Line: NE by 9.5
OK, lets see. Patriots have won 18 of past 19 in this series.
Coaching sensei Bill Belichick is facing rookie coach Doug
Marrone. Quarterback master TomBrady is facing rookie EJ
Manuel. NewEngland has won 10 consecutive games within
the AFC East. Pats have won a league-best nine season
openers in a row. Should I go on or will that about do it?
cotes pick: NE 37-13
BenGALs (0-0) At BeArs (0-0)
Line: CHI by 3
Ex-Canes assistant Marc Trestman (via Canada) makes
his NFL head coaching debut for Bears and faces a thorny
maiden test, with Bengals coming of frst back-to-back
playof years since 1981-82. Gals also happen to be 4-1 all-
time at The Soldier.
cotes pick: CHI 19-17
BUcs (0-0) At Jets (0-0)
Line: TB by 3
Its the Darrelle Revis Bowl as the former Stinkin Jets CB
returns to face his old team. If only Rex Ryan had a receiver
worth covering! NYJ is 6-0 all time at home vs. Bucs and I
give the Planes an upset shot here if rookie QB Geno Smith
can make a little magic. But thats a reach.
cotes pick: TB 24-10
titAns (0-0) At steeLers (0-0)
Line: PIT by 7
My sense that Pittsburgh is headed for a down year was not
altered by an 0-4 preseason, but Ben Roethlisberger is still
very good, and Steelers at home still are tough if no longer
impenetrable. Titans beat Pitt last year, though. Betting line
seems a bit fattering to the homies.
cotes pick: PIT 23-17
ViKinGs (0-0) At Lions (0-0)
Line: DET by 5
Vikings made playofs last year and swept Lions, making it an
11-2 run in series. And Minny will have a shot as long as Adrian
Peterson is the guy a million fantasy owners hope he is. A.P.
needs 151 yards Sunday to join JimBrown and Eric Dickerson
as only men with 9,000 rushing yards in frst 90 games. Like
Motown here at home, but closer than the Vegas number.
cotes pick: DET 27-24
rAiders (0-0) At coLts (0-0)
Line: IND by 9.5
So it looks like Terrelle Pryor beat Matt Flynn in the Raiders
evil-of-two-lessers quarterback battle. Not sure thats a good
thing, Oakland. Not sure there IS much good going on with
the visitors entering this game or season. AndrewLuck has
led Colts to six consecutive regular-season home wins and
the streak wont stop here, but Oaks worth a dice-roll against
cotes pick: IND 24-16
cArdinALs (0-0) At rAMs (0-0)
Line: STL by 4.5
The battle begins to see whos the third-best teamin the NFC
West, with St. Lou on the early inside rail. Rams have lost six
consecutive seasons openers, but Redbirds remain a handy
cure-all for most such streaks. STL swept two fromthe Cacti
last year, and old newcomer Carson Palmer doesnt have
enough left to put a smile on Bruce Arians Arizona coaching
cotes pick: STL 27-23
PAcKers (0-0) At 49ers (0-0)
Line: SF by 4.5
NFC heavyweight bout between reigning division champs is a
venue call for Colin Kaepernick and his Niners, although I like
Aaron Rodgers and the Cheesers to keep it inside the betting
number. Even an outright upset would not shock. Frans won
two fromPack last year (including playofs), and beating a
great QB three straight times is a mountain to climb.
cotes pick: SF 31-28
GiAnts (0-0) At coWBoYs (0-0)
Line: DAL by 3.5
I guess I get why this rivalry is treated to the marquee Sunday
night slot, although, honestly, I could as easily see both these
teams scrambling for wild-card contention as winning the
NFC East. NYG is 4-0 in Dallas newstadium, but Biggies are
banged up on the O-line, andBoys will showbetter pass-D
versus Eli Manning under the wing of sage old Monte Kifn.
cotes pick: DAL 30-27
eAGLes (0-0) At redsKins (0-0)
Line: WAS by 3.5
Robert Grifn III had six TD passes as Skins swept both 2012
games. Meanwhile Mike Vick is trying, on the early Monday
stage, to prove he has life left in his career. I give Philly a small
upset shot, but its more likely Washers will win comfortably.
cotes pick: WAS 34-17
teXAns (0-0) At cHArGers (0-0)
Line: HOU by 4
Houston has won four road openers in a row, and Mondays
nightcap will likely make it fve. Big weight on both clubs.
Houston is dreaming Super Bowl, and Diego expects new
life with stale Norv Turner fnally gone and Mike McCoy in.
Bolts a marginally tempting homedog here, but Imleading
the Texans bandwagon until injuries or results lead me
cotes pick: HOU 34-16
Something has to give in Giants-Cowboys opener
scHUYLer diXon
AP Sports Writer
Eli Manning has never lost
to the Dallas Cowboys in
their fancy $1.2 billion stadi-
um. Tony Romo is perfect in
two season openers against
the New York Giants.
Something gures to give
I dont think theres any-
thing to it, Manning said of
his 4-0 record in Arlington,
which allegedly included the
Giants quarterback scrib-
bling his name, the score,
the date and the words First
Win in the New Stadium on
a concrete column in the visi-
tors locker roomafter a 33-31
victory in 2009. Weve had
some tight games. Hopefully
we can just nd a way to hang
in there and put ourselves in
a situation to win the game at
the end.
The Giants are trying to
bounce back from missing
the playoffs a season after
Manning won his second
Super Bowl. The Cowboys
are trying to bounce out of
an 8-8 rut in coach Jason
Garretts two full seasons
and a three-year postseason
Dallas dominance over
New York in season open-
ers predates Romo by quite
a few years. The Cowboys
are 6-0 all-time in openers
against the Giants, includ-
ing the last time they started
the season at home in 2007
Romos rst full season as
the starter.
More than anything, we
need to make sure that we
create a home-eld advan-
tage, Romo said. Our fans
have done a great job. We
need them to be at their best
on Sunday night. When they
are, theyre very tough to
deal with here in Dallas.
Defensive changes: The
Cowboys decided to switch
to a simpler four-man front
after failing to stop the
Saints passing attack and
the Redskins running game
in season-ending losses that
kept Dallas out of the play-
offs. The change will high-
light DeMarcus Wares pass-
rushing skills and could lead
to big years for Sean Lee and
Bruce Carter if they stay
The Giants released line-
backer Michael Boley and
tackle Chris Canty and
signed tackle Cullen Jenkins
after nishing 31st in
defense. End Jason Pierre-
Paul needed back surgery
and missed the preseason,
and there are other ques-
tions with cornerback Corey
Webster coming off a sub-
par season.
Juggling lines: Injuries
have led to uncertainty for
both offensive lines. Giants
center David Baas has been
battling a sprained knee, and
tackle David Diehl is out
with a thumb injury. First-
round pick Justin Pugh is
starting at right tackle.
The Cowboys have a rst-
round pick starting at center
in Travis Frederick and have
had injury problems at guard
all of training camp.
On the run: Cowboys run-
ning back DeMarco Murray
is trying to make it through
a full season without getting
hurt and wants to revive a
running game that had the
worst per-game average in
franchise history last year.
The new starter for the
Giants is 2012 rst-round
pick David Wilson.
The Dez factor: Dez
Bryant nearly beat the
Giants with a miracle catch
late in last years 29-24
Giants victory, and he fol-
lowed that with a wildly pro-
ductive second half. Romo
says the loss to the Giants
was something of a tipping
point for Bryant, who also
ran an imprecise route that
led to an interception.
Cruz control: Victor Cruz
has been out with a heel inju-
ry but should be ready to go
after a third straight 1,000-
yard season.

Bruno Mars will sing at halftime of
the Super Bowl in February, a per-

tainment plans told The Associated
Press on Saturday.
The person spoke on condition
of anonymity because no announce-
ment had been made. The ofcial
word is expected to come at an
event in New Yorks Times Square
on Sunday.
The NFLs regu-
lar season began
Thursday, and the
rst full slate of
games is Sunday.
The Super Bowl
will be played
Feb. 2 at MetLife
Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
Halftime shows have drawn more
than 100 million television viewers
in the United States alone in past
Beyonce was the star of this
years Super Bowl halftime show
in February in New Orleans, where
the Baltimore Ravens beat the San
Francisco 49ers 34-31.
Some recent halftime performers
at the NFLs championship game
were Madonna in 2012, The Black
Eyed Peas with Usher and Slash in
2011, The Who in 2010, and Bruce
Springsteen and the E Street Band
in 2009.
Mars is one of pop musics top acts,
with several No. 1 hits, including his
most recent, When I Was Your Man.
The 27-year-old singer-songwrit-
er-producer was honored for best
male video and choreography for
Treasure at the MTV Video Music
Awards last month.
Mars, who was born Peter
Hernandez, released his plati-
num-selling debut, Doo-Wops &
Hooligans, in 2010, and released
his second album, Unorthodox
Jukebox, last year. His hits include
Locked Out of Heaven, Just the
Way You Are and Grenade.

The next big thing? Kellys Eagles
JosePH WHite
AP Sports Writer
WASHINGTON Now its the
Washington Redskins who must
face the unknown.
A year ago this week, the
Redskins delivered a jolt to the
NFL, introducing Robert Griffin
III and the zone-read offense. They
put up 40 points on the unsuspect-
ing New Orleans Saints, the first
salvo on the way to an NFC East
On Monday night, the leagues
next new, big thing makes its
regular-season debut. Coach Chip
Kelly, who piled up points at the
University of Oregon with a ped-
al-to-the-metal attack, will try to
do the same in the pros with the
Philadelphia Eagles, starting with
a visit to the Redskins.
New Orleans wasnt really
sure what we were going to do,
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan
said. I think we had a competi-
tive advantage there. There were
rumors, there was speculation, but
they couldnt see anything on film,
so I think the element of surprise
is an advantage.
Eagles quarterback Michael
Vick agreed Its our first time
showing anything other than what
we showed in the preseason, so
it gives us an advantage but
there is a difference: Kellys cre-
ativity has been on display for all
to see for several years.
I can only go on what Ive seen,
Washington defensive coordinator
Jim Haslett said. Ive watched 23,
24 Oregon films, and what they
did in preseason. If they can do
anything else, God bless em.
RG3 and the knee: The game
takes place eight months to the
day since Griffins reconstruc-
tive surgery on his right knee,
a remarkably quick and smooth
rehab by an athlete determined
not to lose a step after winning the
leagues Offensive Rookie of the
Year award.
Chip hits fast-forward: The
Eagles ran 74.25 plays from scrim-
mage per game during the pre-
season, more than any other team.
The trick, of course, is turning
plays into points.
Still quick Vick: Kellys offense
seems well-suited for Vick, who
beat out Nick Foles for the starting
job in the preseason. Im able to
put myself in a position to spread
the field and keep the defense off-
balance, Vick said.
Secondary concern, Part I:
The Redskins ranked 30th against
the pass last year and couldnt
afford any big-name free agents to
beef up their secondary. They used
the draft instead, selecting two
safeties and a cornerback.
Secondary concern, Part II:
The Eagles have the same weakest
link as the Redskins, with three
new starters on the back line.
Gone are cornerbacks Dominique
Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi
Asomugha, replaced by free agent
signees Cary Williams and Bradley

Pack gets another shot at read-option
JAnie MccAULeY
AP Sports Writer
Clay Matthews and the
Green Bay defense spent a
good chunk of the offsea-
son focused on guring out
how to stop the read option
and defend mobile quarter-
backs like San Franciscos
Colin Kaepernick.
Kaepernick left that much
of a mark on the Packers
embarrassed unit in a 45-31
divisional playoff loss to the
49ers at Candlestick Park
in January. Now they meet
again in a second straight
season opener between a
pair of NFC powers.
Im sure theyve been
game-planning for us since
training camp, 49ers tight
end Vernon Davis said.

The Packers have been
forced to relive the game in

even if many of Green Bays

It was a disappointing
night for us, quarterback
Aaron Rodgers said.
Kaepernick, for one, has
vowed to forget about that
impressive playoff debut
eight months ago.
Were not worried about
what happened last year,
he said.
The Packers have no
choice but to be worried.
They were embarrassed
by the NFC champions in
their opener last year at
Lambeau Field, then again
in the postseason.
Two newtackles: Rookie
left tackle David Bakhtiari
and inexperienced starting
right tackle Don Barclay
are being counted upon
to ll huge holes in Green
Bays offensive line. They
face the daunting task of
protecting Rodgers against
one of the best defensive
fronts in football.
Rodgers simple message:
Block those guys, please.
Kaepernicks top tar-

Michael Crabtree sidelined
until at least November

right Achilles tendon that
required surgery.

Whats the real reason behind
House Bill 1576?
The bill, which was intro-
duced earlier this year by state
Rep. Jeff Pyle
Indiana) essen-
tially revamps the
process in which
plant and animal
species are listed
as threatened or
endangered, and
it also throws all
the work out the
window for those
species that are
already listed.
Even the process
used to designate
waterways as wild
trout streams would also be
Even better, all 73 species
currently listed as threatened or
endangered in the state - such as
the Indiana bat, Northern ying
squirrel, peregrine falcon and the
osprey, would have to be re-eval-
uated not by the Pennsylvania
Game Commission of Fish and
Boat Commission, but by the
Independent Regulatory Review
Commission, which would deter-
mine if the listings are accurate
and if the species are truly
deserving of such a designation.
If the bill is passed, the agen-
cies would have two years to
prove that the Indiana bat, for
example, is truly endangered. If
they dont produce acceptable
data that particular species can
be removed from the list.
The politicians supporting
the bill have been throwing out
feel good terms to back the
legislation. Pyle stated that the
legislators are simply asking
for sufcient burden of proof
that a species is in fact threat-
ened of endangered.
State Rep. Dan Moul
(R-Adams) said the bill simply
asks the state agencies to
provide evidence that backs up
their decision.
Burden of proof and evi-
dence? That may be a little hard
to do considering were talking
about species that are endan-
gered, meaning they are few
and far between.
Hard to nd.
Is that enough proof?

tend that the bill would bring
transparency to the process
that agencies use to designate a

Junior hunters this fall
will get two shots at taking
part in a special pheasant
hunt just for them.
In an effort to better
accommodate the busy
schedules families often
have, the Pennsylvania
Game Commission this
year is allowing the sports-
mens clubs that host
junior pheasant hunts
some leeway in planning
their events.
In previous years, all
Junior Pheasant Hunt
events statewide were
held on the same Saturday.
But this year, clubs are
permitted to host events
on either Saturday in the
junior pheasant season.
And some clubs have
responded by scheduling
two events one each on
Oct. 12 and Oct. 19.
Were glad to see clubs
stepping up to meet the
growing interest our junior
hunters have demonstrat-
ed, Game Commission
executive director Carl G.
Roe said.
Junior pheasant hunts
are events for youngsters
between the ages of 12
and 16 years old who have
successfully completed a
Hunter-Trapper Education
course. The events are
held on Saturdays during
the one-week junior pheas-
ant season, which this year
runs from Saturday, Oct.
12 to Saturday, Oct. 19.
Junior pheasant hunts
all are held on lands open
to public hunting, and
the Game Commission
provides clubs with about
3,000 pheasants to stock
for the hunts. The commis-
sion stocks another 15,000
pheasants statewide ahead
of the junior season, and
this year plans to release
more than 200,000 pheas-
ants across Pennsylvania.
Youngsters taking part
in a junior pheasant hunt
event are not required to
purchase a license, but
they must wear the neces-
sary amount of uorescent
orange and be accom-
panied by an adult as
required by law.
Juniors who register to
hunt in a special event,
or who otherwise hunt
pheasants in the junior
season, must adhere to
Pennsylvanias long-stand-
ing daily bag limit of two
pheasants and may only
harvest cock pheasants in

some water. Looks like the jay appreciated
the gesture.
Earlier in June, Gary Cobb caught this pair
of bluebirds (above), each with a grub, keep-

graph a pileated woodpecker for years.

have a camera with a stronger telephoto lens,
its difcult to get close enough, he wrote.

members of the hazleton archery Club, from the left: Linda ebert, Leo mchugh, Jonathan Kochie, Bob Bugaiski, Kristen ebert and Billy ebert, sitting.
Jonathan Kochie draws back his compound bow while shooting from a plat-
form at the hazleton archey Clubs 3d course.
Although the start of archery
season is still a month away, there
is still plenty of opportunity to do
a little bowhunting right now.
The Hazleton Archery Club,
which is actually located in
Freeland, has 26 acres open for
hunting, seven days a week.
But instead of pursuing deer,
the main quarry at the club are
3D targets.
Thirty of them.
With the Oct. 5 opener of
archery season weeks ago, the
club becomes a busy place dur-
ing September as hunters ne-
tune their bows and hunting
skills on the 3D course. Club
president Bob Ski Bugaiski
said the course was designed to
not only hone shooting skills for
those who use a bow or cross-
bow, but the 3D targets were
situated in a wooded area to
simulate hunting conditions.
When youre on the course,
youre putting yourself in an
exact hunting setting and shoot-
ing at a target that is the exact
size of that animal, he said.
Its a hunting setup.
The course includes life-size
replicas of deer, elk, moose, tur-
key and antelope, to name a few,
and even features of couple of
locations where shooting is done
from a 12-foot high platform that
can accommodate ve people.
Bugaiski said the platforms
simulate shooting from a trees-
tand, an important aspect for an
archery hunter who is preparing
for the season.
You shoot down from the plat-
form so youre getting used to
shooting at the same angle you
would from a treestand, he said.
Youre also learning to judge dis-
tance, as with the case with all of
our targets. The distances arent
marked so you have to judge, just
like when you do when a deer is
in front of your stand.
The club also offers a practice
range for archers to sight in their
bows before they head out onto
the 3D course. Club director Leo
McHugh said practice range is
also used by hunters to sight in
their crossbows, which are also
welcome on the 3D course.
McHugh said crossbows
were allowed at the club
once the Pennsylvania Game
Commission approved their use
for hunting several years ago.
This is an archery club, and
since theyre legal nowwe encour-
age it, said McHugh, adding
he hunts with a crossbow. Its a
good place to sight in a crossbow
because we have targets up to
60 yards. A lot of people in town
cant do that in their backyards.
The club started putting out
3D targets in the late 1980s and
at one time the course consisted
of 40 targets. Bugaiski said it
was cut back to 30 because it
took a lot of time to go through
a 40-target course and more and
Close to the real thing
The Hazleton Archery Clubs 3D course ofers hunters
an opportunity to practice in realistic hunting situations
The Hazleton Archery Clubs 3D
course consists of 30 targets and
is open seven days a week until the
beginning of archery season. Each
shooting station has an adult and
youth distance and the course is
open to the public. The fee to use
the course is $7 for club members
and $8 for non-members. For

stream, thats just sugar-
coating the bitter truth
driving the legislation.
During a public hearing
late last month on the bill,
state Rep. Martin Causer
Potter) made a few com-
ments that hint at the real
reason behind the bill. In
my opinion, the bill is all
about making it easier for
business, industry and
land developers to proceed
with their projects at the
expense of the states
threatened and endan-
gered species.
Heres what Causer
had to say at the hearing:
Listing species as endan-
gered places severe hard-
ship on businesses. We
cant run jobs and busi-
nesses out of the state just
because species are threat-
ened with extinction.
I dont believe the
endangered species des-
ignation is meant to run
any business out of the
state. Its designed to help
businesses and industries
locate their projects in a
responsible manner that
wont drive an endangered
species to extinction.
Causer also mentioned
the hardship that the
endangered designation
places on businesses.
What about the the
hardship that was placed
on dozens of species for
decades that drove them
to the verge of extinction?
What about the irresponsi-
ble land use, pollution and
development that created
those hardships in the rst
The PGC and PFBC have
done a commendable job of
studying, monitoring and
protecting our threatened
and endangered species
to prevent any more from
becoming extinct, like the
passenger pigeon. At the
same time, industry, at least
in our area, doesnt seem to
have missed a beat.
Take a drive through
Noxen and gaze up at the
towering wind turbines
lining the mountain tops if
you need proof.

While 3D targets have
become a great way for
hunters to practice for
archery season, Bugaiski
said they have changed the
sport of archery. Years ago,
he said, many of the club
members werent neces-
sarily hunters but simply
archers who loved the sport.
They competed in leagues
and target competitions and
at one time the clubs league
had 60 shooters.
Today, he said, most of
the club members along
with those who shoot at
the facility are hunters
interested in practicing
rather than competitive
When archery was a
sport, we had a lot more
people and groups com-
ing out, Bugaiski said.
People still come here,
but there isnt the amount
of leagues that there used
to be. That went to the
wayside when 3D came in,
and now the focus is more
on hunting.
Bugaiski and McHugh
themselves are avid
archery hunters and are
still happy to see the club
serve the needs of those
who prefer hunting with a
In fact, hunting is what
attracted Bugaiski to
archery in the rst place.
Its a good season with
the pleasant weather, plen-
ty of time to hunt and the
deer are moving, he said.
Years ago I was hunting
deer with a rie and saw
another hunter re a shot
from his hip at a deer.
After I saw that I went
home, put my rie in the
case and didnt hunt for
10 years until I discovered

Napoli hit two home runs,
Jonny Gomes and prized
rookie Xander Bogaerts also
connected, and the Boston
Red Sox kept up their dizzy-
ing scoring spree at Yankee
Stadium, bashing New York
13-9 Saturday for their fth
straight win.
The AL East leaders
became the rst visiting

the Highlanders at Hilltop
Down 12-3, the Yankees
rallied with four runs in
the sixth inning and chased
John Lackey (9-12). Mark
Reynolds added a two-run
double in the eighth off Red
Sox reliever Drake Britton
that made it 12-9.
David Ortiz and Dustin
Pedroia each contributed
to Bostons ve doubles. By
the end of the fourth inning,
it was 10-2 and every Red
Sox batter had gotten a hit.

enough for David Huff (2-1),
tagged for nine runs and
eight hits in 3 1-3 innings.
Orioles 4, White Sox 3
Wieters hit a two-run single
in the 10th inning to lift
Baltimore to its third con-
secutive win.
Pinch-hitter Henry
Urrutia started the win-
ning rally with a one-out
ineld single against closer
Addison Reed (5-3). Pinch-
runner Chris Dickersonthen
went all the way to third on
Nick Markakis base hit.
Reed bounced back with a
strikeout of Nate McLouth,
but Markakis stole second
and both runners scored
when Wieters lined a single
into right eld.
It was the ninth consecu-
tive loss for the White Sox,
who grabbed a 3-2 lead on
Conor Gillaspies pinch-
hit homer against Tommy
Hunter (4-3) in the top half
of the inning.
Danny Valencia had three
hits and Brian Roberts hom-
ered for the Orioles, who
were 1 for 17 with runners
in scoring position before
Wieters hit.
Blue jays 11, Twins 2
Adam Lind hit a pair of
three-run homers and J.A.
Happ snapped a three-game
losing streak, leading the
Toronto Blue Jays over the
Minnesota Twins.
Linds rst home run
highlighted a ve-run rst
inning a night after Toronto
posted ve runs in the third
frame in a victory over
Minnesota. Lind went deep
again in the eighth for his
second multi-homer game
this season and 10th of his
Happ (4-5), who entered
the game with a 7.71 ERA
in his last three outings,
allowed an unearned run on
ve hits while striking out
four. The left-hander, who
suffered a fractured skull
and sprained knee on May 7
when he was hit in the head
by line drive, hadnt pitched
past the fth inning in back-
to-back starts.
Kevin Correia (9-11) took
the loss for Minnesota.
Royals 4, Tigers 3
Salvador Perez hit a two-run
homer off Justin Verlander
and the Kansas City Royals
beat the Detroit Tigers.

pitch over the left-eld wall
to put the Royals ahead 4-2.

with three no-decisions in
six starts since an Aug. 6
victory at Cleveland.
The Tigers have dropped
his past six starts and are
13-17 in his 30 starts this
The Royals have won all
ve games Verlander has
started against them this
season. Verlander allowed
four runs and eight hits in
seven innings, while walk-
ing one and striking out
Wade Davis (7-10), the
second of ve Kansas City
pitchers, picked up the vic-
tory on his 28th birthday.
Greg Holland worked a
perfect ninth for his 39th
save in 42 chances.
Athletics 2, Astros 1
OAKLAND, Calif. Dan
Straily pitched seven score-
less innings to lead surging

Yoenis Cespedes and Jed
Lowrie homered as the As
won for the seventh time in
nine games to remain on top
of the AL West. They began
the day with a half-game
lead over Texas.
Straily (9-7) allowed two
hits, struck out seven and
walked one in his third con-
secutive victory. The right-
hander has a 1.50 ERA over

ning streak.
Dan Otero allowed a
run in the eighth, but Sean
Doolittle got four outs for
his rst save in four chances,
completing the ve-hitter.
Houston starter Brett
Oberholtzer (4-2) pitched
six stellar innings, allowing
one run and seven hits.
Cardinals 5, Pirates 0
Wainwright bounced back
from back-to-back sub-par
outings with seven shutout
innings and David Freese
homered to lead the St.
Louis Cardinals to a win.
The victory moved the
Cardinals into rst place,
a half-game ahead of the
Pirates in the NL Central
with their third win in four
games. Pittsburgh has lost
four of six including the rst
two of the three-game set.
The Pirates remain stuck on
81 wins, one shy of assur-
ing them a winning record
for the rst time since they
went 96-66 in 1992.
Wainwright (16-9) had
given up 15 earned runs
over his previous two starts,
both against Cincinnati.
He allowed a career-high
nine runs in two innings of
a 10-0 loss Aug. 28. But he
regained his form against
the Pirates allowing just two
Jeff Locke (9-5) allowed
three runs on three hits over
ve innings.
Phillies 6, Braves 5
Freddy Galvis hit a game-
ending homer with one out
in the ninth inning to lift the
Philadelphia Phillies to a
win over the Atlanta Braves.
Atlanta had trailed 5-3
going into the ninth, but
Andrelton Simmons hit a
two-out two-run homer off
Jonathan Papelbon (5-1),
who blew his seventh save
in 32 opportunities.
Galvis, who had four hits,
got Papelbon the win by
connecting on a 1-0 pitch
from Freddy Garcia (0-1)
into the seats in right eld.
It was the rst four-hit game
for Galvis, who had been
0-for-7 since being recalled
from Triple-A Lehigh Valley
on Sept. 3. It was his fth
homer of the season.
Carlos Ruiz singled,
doubled and drove in
three runs, and Cesar
Hernandez and Kevin
Frandsen each had three
hits for the Phillies.
Freddie Freeman had
two hits and two RBIs for
NL East-leading Atlanta,
which dropped its third
Nationals 9, Marlins 2
Zimmerman homered twice
and drove in three runs,
powering the Washington
Nationals to a victory over
the Miami Marlins.
Zimmerman hit a two-run
shot in the rst and a leadoff
drive on Nathan Eovaldis
rst pitch of the third.
Tanner Roark (5-0)
pitched six scoreless innings
as the Nationals won for the
third time in four games to
remain on the fringe of the
NL wild-card race.
Eovaldi (3-6) lasted just
three innings in his shortest
outing of the season. He was
charged with ve runs and
nine hits.
Reds 4, Dodgers 3, 10 innings
Hamiltonstole secondinthe
10th inning to set up Todd
Fraziers game-winning sin-
gle, helping the Cincinnati
Reds win.
Ryan Ludwick opened
the Cincinnati 10th with a
leadoff walk against Brian
Wilson (1-1). Reds manager
Dusty Baker then went to
the dynamic Hamilton, and
the speedy prospect took
second as catcher A.J. Ellis
dropped the ball while tak-
ing it out of his glove.
Frazier followed with a
line-drive single into right
eld to give Cincinnati ve
wins in its last six games.
J.J. Hoover got three outs

homer for NL West-leading
Los Angeles.

scoreless inning then Jim
Henderson pitched a perfect

three-run homer for the
streaking Indians, and Nick
Swisher had a solo shot.

Corey Kluber (8-5), the
rst of seven Cleveland
pitchers, allowed two runs

after walking the leadoff hit-
ter in the sixth.

for the rst time in six starts
since coming off the dis-
abled list on Aug. 11. The
left-hander allowed six runs
in six innings.

First impressions can
be a good place to start
Did you know it takes
a tenth of a second for
your brain to form a rst
Its true. Smart guys
in white coats who carry
clipboards around found
that out.
In the time it takes for
Rex Ryan to get cranky
at a press conference, our
brains take in all the infor-
mation about someone
and spit out a judgment
about their attractive-
ness, trustworthiness and
whether we can bum 5
bucks from them.
And your brain, if you
believe those science types,
is almost always right.
Luckily, when it comes
to fantasy football, your
brain cant make deci-
sions without you help-
ing it along. Because rst
impressions in fantasy are
seldom what they seem.
If they were, ex-Jet QB
Glenn Foley would have a
bust in Canton based on
his 415-yard, 3 TD perfor-
mance on opening day in
1998. (He threw for only
334 more yards and 1 TD
the rest of the year and
was soon benched.)
Or Kevin Ogletrees
114-yard, 2-TD debut
effort for Dallas last year
would translate into a top
10 fantasy WR spot. (He
nished the year with 4
TDs and 436 yards.)
Luckily, history pro-
vides a guide to players
who have a track record of
strong starts, and are not
ashes in the pan. (Or are
they a ash in the pans?)
And while there are
some exceptions to the
rules, this start/sit list is a
good starting point.
Start: Of course, your
going to start guys like
Drew Brees and Tom
Brady who usually excel
in season openers. (Brady
has been particular good
in Week 1 the past three
But the off-the-radar
guy who may surprise the
most is the Steelers Ben
Roethlisberger. Ben (Im
not going to try and spell
Roeslithhwhatever again)
has long gotten credit for
being a great real-word
QB, but an average fan-
tasy guy. But thats not
entirely true.
If he didnt get injured
late last year, he would
have had a career high in
TDs and yards. His issue
has been staying healthy
over a full season, but
thats not a problem in an
With no running game
right now, trust Bens arm
over the Titans in Week 1.
Careful: The Chiefs
Alex Smith and the
Texans Matt Schaub will
have their moments this
year, but not this week-
end. Its not their fault.
Both K.C. and Houston
like to run and they both
face defenses that will be
sacricial lambs to their
ground games.
Also, you probably cant
bench the Packers Aaron
Rodgers, but hes got a
tough matchup. And, not
counting a 2011 game
against shootout-inducing
New Orleans , he usually
comes out of the gate slow.
Start: If you are wor-
ried about Matt Forte of
the Bears, dont be. Yes,
hes a must start every
week, but hes got a nasty
Bengals defense waiting
for him today.
Hes also one of the
best Week 1 backs over
his career. Since entering
the league in 2008, hes
scored at least one TD in
four out of five openers.
And hes done most of
that damage as a receiver.
So let Cincy shut down
the run. They probably
will, but they wont shut
down Forte.
Careful: Marshawn
Lynch, Seahawks.
Historically, Lynch is a
closer. He does his best
work in November and
December. Which is nice
for your fantasy play-
offs, but not so nice in
September. Seattle heads
East this week and faces
a Carolina D that can con-
tain the run. Hell get his,
just not today.
Also, beware of guys
whose teams fall behind
big and they get forgot-
ten. Darren McFadden
of the Raiders could fall
into that category today.
Start: Reggie Wayne
of the Colts may be at the
tail end of his prime, and
that may show up as the
year slogs on, but hes also
had a heck of a lot of suc-
cess leading off.
Hes had 100 yards
in each of the last three
openers OK, so he had
99 yards in 2010, but
well round up and that
includes 2011 when he
had Kerry Collins throw-
ing him the ball. He
should do ne against the
Raiders today.
Careful: The Giants
Victor Cruz is nice fanta-
sy player most of the time.
But just not when the
Giants play the Cowboys.
He had 8 catches for 81
yards over two games
against Dallas last year,
including a 58-yard effort
in the opener. Look at
the bright side: Hell be a
great play Week 2 against
the Broncos.
Start: Finding a sure-
thing tight end for Week 1
is a tough job. Theres not
a lot of statistical evidence
to sift through. We know
the Saints Jimmy Graham
and Cowboys Jason
Witten will probably have
good games, but theyre
no-brainers. So, lets go
with Kyle Rudolph of the
Heres the logic: The
Lions can score, but they
cant stop anyone either.
Adrian Peterson will
nd the end zone a few
times, but to keep up the
Viking have to nd TDs
from other sources. And
guess who led the team in
receiving TDs last year
Rudolph, of course.
Careful: Every year,
Vernon Davis of the
49ers is supposed to take
a leap forward into fantasy
superstardom. Every year,
he teases and falls short.
You may think a Green
Bay-San Francisco game
would be a shootout, but
look for it to be a 20-17
type game with Davis not
playing a big role.
Do you REALLY need a
start/sit hint for a kicker?
If you drafted smart, you
should only have one on
your roster. NEXT!
Start: Heres a hint
you dont really need:
ALWAYS start the defense
that plays the New York
Jets. Not only will you
score lots of fantasy
points, but you could end
up being mightily enter-
tained. Can you say butt
fumble? This week, that
team is Tampa Bay.
Careful: Da Bears were
the top scoring fantasy
defense a year ago. But
that was when they were
coached by the defense-
loving Lovie Smith. They
may still be a good squad,
but opening against the
Bengals wont be easy.

Playing in his rst Grand
Slam seminal, Wawrinka
opened with about as aw-
less a rst set as possible.
He broke Djokovic twice
over the rst 18 minutes,
and when he completed
the second break with a siz-
zling crosscourt forehand
winner one of seven in
that set Djokovic simply
glanced across with a look
that landed somewhere
between bemused and
Yes, Wawrinka was going
to be there all day, and by
the time the fth set rolled
around, the scene near his
changeover chair showed
it. It looked like his living
room, strewn with towels,
shirts, a warmup jacket
and an assortment of rack-
ets, including the mangled
remains of one stick he
smashed in the fourth set,
which drew him a point
It was that kind of day;
the players each won 165
points. And Game 3 was
that sort of game.
It started innocently
enough, with an ace and
a forced error by Djokovic
that gave Wawrinka a quick
30-love lead.
But when Djokovic
scrambled to get to a deft-
ly struck drop shot, then
Wawrinka sprayed the
reply wide, things started
setting up for something
special. Djokovic followed
that hustle play with an
acutely angled backhand
for a winner to make it
30-30. Wawrinka hit a fore-
hand winner to make it
40-30, and for the next 15
minutes, each man tried in
vain to close out the game.
The nal 23 points
included six winners, two
double-faults and at least
one small rest break for
Wawrinka after a cruelly
efcient dink-lob-overhead
combination of Djokovics
chased Wawrinka off the
court and onto the ledge
near the front row.
That game, I was
already quite tired, quite
dead physically, Wawrinka
said. Just trying to stay
with him, to ght, to give
everything I had in my
body. But it was tough.

Jeff Gordon (24) and Kurt Busch (78) lead the field at the start of the NASCAR race
at Richmond International Raceway on Saturday.
The Charlotte Observer
Carl Edwards claimed an unex-
pected victory and the Chase for
the Sprint Cup picked up some
new championship contenders.
Edwards passed Paul Menard
on a restart with three of 400 laps
remaining and held off Kurt Busch
to win Saturday nights Federated
Auto Parts 400 at Richmond
International Raceway.
Once the dust settled, Edwards,
Jimmie Johnson, Clint Bowyer,
Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch, Matt
Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt Jr.,
Kurt Busch, Greg Bife and Joey
Logano all claimed spots in the
Chase by nishing the rst 26
races in the Top 10 of the series
Martin Truex Jr. and Kasey
Kahne claimed the two wild
card positions. When the
Chase begins next weekend at
Chicagoland Speedway, Kenseth
will be the top seed.
Ryan Newman nished third
in the race, Jamie McMurray was
fourth and Menard was fth.
Pole-winner Jeff Gordon took
early control of the race, leading
the rst 49 laps.
Brad Keselowski got around
Gordon to take the lead on Lap
50 and remained out front until a
round of green-ag pit stops got
underway on Lap 91.
During the green-ag stops,
Johnson was penalized for speed-
ing on pit road and feel three
laps down under green-ag con-
Once the cycle of stops were
completed on Lap 98, Keselowski
was back in the lead followed by
Kenseth and Kurt Busch.
After 100 laps, Keselowski
continued to hold a comfortable
lead over Kenseth.
The rst caution of the race
was displayed on Lap 137 for
debris. All of the lead-lap cars pit
for fuel and tires and McMurray
took over the race lead on the
restart on Lap 142. He was fol-
lowed by Keselowski and Kyle
After 200 laps, Keselowski
held the lead followed by Kurt
Busch and McMurray.
David Stremme spun to bring
the races second caution on Lap
207. During a round of pit stops,
Kurt Busch came off pit road rst
and took over the race lead on
the restart on Lap 215, followed
by Keselowski and McMurray.
Four laps later, Keselowski
whose car was fastest on short
runs took back the race lead
on Lap 219.
Gordon was forced to pit under
green on Lap 224 for a loose
wheel and fell two laps down
under green-ag conditions.
Debris on the track brought
out the third caution of the race
on Lap 267. All of the lead-lap
cars pit for fuel and tires again
with Bowyer taking over the race
lead on the restart on Lap 274.
He was followed by Keselowski
and Kurt Busch.
Gordon, who had already made
up one lap under green, returned
to the lead lap during the third
caution after getting the free
pass for the rst car not on the
lead lap.
With 100 laps remaining,
Bowyer continued to lead fol-
lowed by Keselowski and
Just after another round of
green-ag pit stops began,
Johnson had another at tire and
hit the wall, which brought out
the fourth caution of the race on
Lap 343. Edwards was the rst
off pit road and took over the
race lead on the restart on Lap
352, followed by Menard and
Kurt Busch.
With 30 laps remaining,
Edwards remained out front fol-
lowed by Kurt Busch and Menard.
Bowyer wrecked on Lap 394 to
bring out a caution and all of the
lead-lap cars dived to pit road
for fuel and tires. Menard took
over the race lead on the restart
on Lap 398 after taking just two
fresh tires during his stop. He
was followed by Edwards and
Mark Martin.
Shortly after the restart,

WASHINGTON For the fourth
consecutive summer, teen employ-
ment has stayed anchored around
record lows, prompting experts to
fear that a generation of youth is
likely to be economically stunted
with lower earnings and opportuni-
ties in years ahead.
The trend is all the more striking
given that the overall unemploy-
ment rate has steadily dropped, to
7.4 percent in August. And employ-
ers in recent months have been
collectively adding almost 200,000
new jobs a month. It led to hopes
that this would be the summer
when teen employment improved.
In 1999, slightly more than 52
percent of teens 16 to 19 worked a
summer job. By this year, that num-
ber had plunged to about 32.25 per-
cent over June and July. It means
that slightly more than 3 in 10 teens
actually worked a summer job, out
of a universe of roughly 16.8 million
U.S. teens.
We have never had anything this
low in our lives. This is a Great
Depression for teens, and no time
in history have we encountered any-
thing like that, said Andrew Sum,
director of the Center for Labor
Market Studies at Northeastern
University in Boston. Thats why
its such an important story.

feld of big
data, jobs go
Chicago Tribune (MCT)
Professionals in big data are big
deals in todays largely sluggish
U.S. job market.
The demand for talent capable
of gleaning useful information
from businesses increasingly large
and diverse data sets generated
by sensors, electronic payments,
online sales, social media and more
is outpacing the supply of work-
Take Enova International, which
analyzes more than two dozen data
sources to determine, in less than
10 minutes, whether an applicant
will qualify for one of its three-
year, $10,000 loans.
In the past three years, the grow-
ing Chicago online lender has dou-
bled the size of its analytic team to
25 people, and next year, it would
like to increase it by 50 percent,
said Adam McElhinney, Enovas
head of business analytics. Theres
a shortage of talent that were look-
ing to address, McElhinney said.
By 2018, the United States
might face a shortfall of about 35
percent in the number of people
with advanced training in statistics
and other disciplines who can help
companies realize the potential
of digital information generated
from their own operations as well
as from suppliers and customers,
according to McKinsey & Co.
That decit represents more
than 140,000 workers, the consult-
ing rm estimates.
Workers in big data are hard
to come by in the short term. A
recent survey by CareerBuilder
an afliate of Tribune Co., which
owns the Chicago Tribune and is
a partner in McClatchy-Tribune
News Service found that jobs
tied to managing and interpret-
ing big data were among the hot
areas for hiring in the second half
of 2013.
There arent enough of them.
Period. End of story, said Linda
Burtch, founder of Burtch Works,
an Evanston, Ill.-based executive

for quantitative professionals
has grown so across industries
that there arent enough kids

It pays to
a salary
When you took your latest job,
did you negotiate for more pay?
If not, you might have left money
on the table. And thats an error
few can afford to make in this peri-
od of anemic pay growth.
Since the Great Recession, pay
has been going up at a snails pace.
In fact, according to
the Economic Policy
Institute, wages fell
for the bottom 70 per-
cent of workers from
2007 to 2012. And
the period up to that
point wasnt particu-
larly helpful for pay
Research by
Lawrence Mishel and
Heidi Shierholz for
the institute shows
that from 2000 to
2007 the median
workers wage growth
was just 2.6 percent. People at the
higher rungs of compensation did
better, but even there, gains were
From 2007 to 2012 white-collar
occupations, blue-collar and ser-
vice job compensation remained
unchanged for managers and pro-
fessionals, while it declined 2.2 per-
cent for sales jobs, the researchers
said. The vast majority of wage
earners have already experienced a
lost decade, one where real wages
were either at or in decline.
With such a lousy environment
for pay, and with the unemploy-
ment rate still at recessionary
levels, many people have concluded
they are simply lucky to have a
job. They fear that asking for more
money could be a dangerous move
when applicants far outnumber
Yet a new survey by
CareerBuilder, a Tribune Co. afli-
ate, suggests there might be more
room to negotiate for pay than
people assume.
About 45 percent of employers
said they are willing to negotiate
salaries for initial job offers. And
they expect job applicants to try to
negotiate pay.
In contrast, 49 percent of work-
ers said they accept the rst offer.
The survey was done online by
Harris Interactive and involved
2,000 hiring managers and human
resource professionals and about
3,000 full-time private-sector U.S.
The research shows that people
are more daring with age. About
55 percent of workers 35 and older
said they negotiate the rst offer.
Only 45 percent of those 18 to 34
did so.
Men are more willing to talk
money. About 54 percent of men
said they negotiated, while only 49
percent of women did. That may
be one reason why a pay gap exists
between men and women in the
same types of jobs.
Research of recent college gradu-
ates done last year by the American
Association of University Women
showed men averaging more pay
than women in virtually all profes-
sions. For example, after majoring
in business, women were earning
about $38,000 on average, while
men at the same stage of careers
were earning $45,000.
Many employers expect a sal-
ary negotiation and build that into
their initial offer, said Rosemary
Haefner, vice president of human
resources at CareerBuilder. So

Q: Career coaches
always tell people to keep
their skills current and
update them if theyre out
of date, but I never see spe-
cics of how to go about
doing that. Do you know
of any resources where I
can look up what skills are
most needed by compa-
nies, and where I can learn
them, so that I dont just
waste my money studying
the wrong things? The
penalty is too great if I get
this wrong.

interests drive the direc-
tion of your skill develop-
Just as the best career

To avoid that, spend

Also explore this sense
of high risk that you feel
so that it doesnt hold you
back. Take some deep
breaths to help bring any
anxiety down so that you
can think this through
more freely.
How urgent is your need
to enhance your skills?
Your needs are different
if youre a recent college
graduate vs. someone who
has been in the same job
for several years.
If youre getting feed-
back from your boss, or
noticing that you dont
have the skills needed for
promotion, also take note
of that.
What is your personal
orientation to learning? If
you have a habit of learn-
ing new things taking
up new hobbies, for exam-
ple adopt this perspec-
tive for your career.
If this isnt part of your
general makeup, adjust
your expectation for updat-
ing skills from one and
done to a lifetime learning
You dont necessarily
have to start big espe-
cially if lacking a big
picture plan has prevented
you from taking any action.
Have a couple of major
areas in mind. Maybe
youd like to learn some

Your rst steps could be
as simple as doing some
reading, trying some tuto-
rials, or going to a lunch-
and-learn. Then if someone
asked you what you had
learned recently, youd be
able to give an interesting
If you want to move up,
then get clear on your pre-
ferred direction and make
a more extensive plan.
Again, it might not
require an expensive
investment. For example,
if you want to improve
your public speaking, try
Toastmasters for speak-
ing and YouTube for
PowerPoint lessons.
If youre concerned
that your job is going to
become obsolete, examine
your fear to see if its real-
istic, and then think about
the timeline. Get input
from your boss to help
make a plan.
All this said, there are
some things that are high
value regardless of your
industry. Project manage-
ment skills, computer

Historically, Enova typi-

Enova, a unit of Texas-
based Cash America
International Inc., visits with
Northwestern University
and the University of
Chicago several times a
year, recommending that
they adjust their curriculum
to help turn out graduates
with the skills for big data.
Over the past ve years,
there has been a conver-
gence of data analysis
and computer science,
McElhinney said, noting
that big data requires pro-
ciency at both. Five years
ago, that was not the case.
On Oct. 11 at the
University of Chicago,
Enova, which has more than
1,000 Chicago-area work-
ers, is sponsoring a data
smackdown in which it will
provide students with a data
set and business case, and
the students have six hours
to make recommendations.
Meanwhile, IBM said Aug.
14 that it has now partnered
with more than 1,000 colleg-
es and universities, includ-
ing those at Northwestern
and DePaul, to try to narrow
the skills gap on big data.
Thanks partly to advanc-
es in software and database
systems, companies nd
it easier to capture, store,
crunch and share the data
in ways that help their busi-
ness serve customers, pre-
dict their behavior, innovate,
improve productivity and
cut costs. The computing
power of the average desk-
top computer, for example,
has risen by 75 times from
2000 to 2013, McKinsey
period of employment for
teens as they are off from
school and get their rst
brush with employment
and the responsibilities
that come with it. Falling
teen employment, however,
is just as striking in the
12-month numbers over the
past decade.
The picture these teen
employment statistics pro-
vide looks even worse when
viewed through the complex
prism of race. Sum and col-
leagues did just that, com-
paring June and July 2000
and the same two months of
2013. In2000, 61.28percent
of white teens 16 to 19 held
a job, a number that fell to
39.25 percent this summer.
For African-Americans, a
number that was dismal in
2000, 33.91 percent of 16-
to 19-year-olds holding a
job, fell to a staggering low
of 19.25 percent this June
and July.
It wasnt terribly better
for Hispanics, who saw the
percentage of employed
teens fall from40.31 percent
in the two-month period of
2000 to 26.7 percent in June
and July 2013.
One of the more sur-
prising ndings of Sums
research is that teens whose
parents were wealthy were
more likely to have a job
than those whose parents
had less income. Some
46 percent of white male
teens whose parents earned
between $100,000 and
$149,000 held a job this
summer, compared with just
9.1 percent of black male
teens whose family income
was below$20,000 and 15.2
percent for Hispanic teen
males with that same low
family income.
That nding is impor-
tant because a plethora of
research shows that teens
who work do better in a
widerange of social and
economic indicators. The
plunging teen employment
rate is likely to mean trouble
for this generation of young
workers of all races.
Kids that get work expe-
rience when they are 17 or
18 end up graduating from
college at a higher rate, said
Michael Gritton, executive
director of the Workforce
Investment Board, which
promotes job creation
and teen employment in
Louisville, Ky., and six sur-
rounding counties. There
are economic returns to
those young people because
they get a chance to work.
Almost every person you
ask remembers their rst
job because they started to
learn things from the world
of work that they cant learn
in the classroom.
The teen employment
numbers are calculated from
the Current Population
Surveys, carried out by
the Census Bureau for the
Labor Departments Bureau
of Labor Statistics. This sur-
vey of households is used
in determining estimates
for the size of the civilian
workforce, the number of
employed nationally and the
unemployment rate.
Unemployment data is
calculated in a different
fashion, and while it tells a
similar story of hardship for
teens, it is not considered
by researchers to be as accu-
rate as the employment data
because it underestimates
the severity of the slow
The weak employment
numbers sometimes prompt
a mistaken narrative that
younger workers are just
staying in college longer
rather than entering the
workforce, or are going on
to graduate school given the
impaired jobs market.
I think there is this myth
out there that there is some
silver lining for young peo-
ple, that they are going on
to college. You dont see
an increase in enrollment
rates over and above the
long-term trend. You cant
see a Great Recession blip,
said Heidi Shierholz, a labor
economist at the liberal
Economic Policy Institute,
a research group. They are
not in school. Theres been
a huge spike in the not-in-
school, not employed. Its
just a huge missed opportu-
Even before the economic
crisis exploded in the sum-
mer of 2008, workers ages
16 to 19 made up a declin-
ing share of the overall
workforce, in part because
of a decades-long climb in
college enrollment, and in
part because universities
now place less importance
on work and more on life
experiences and community
But most of this decline
in youth in the workforce
is thought to be the result
of the severe economic cri-
sis and its aftermath, with
older workers taking the
jobs of teens.
People entering into the
labor force in their 20s, it
looks like more and more
now theyre not going to
have any work experi-
ence as teens. Labor force
participation is as low as
its ever been, said Keith
Hall, who served as com-
missioner of the Bureau of
Labor Statistics from 2008
to 2012.
Hall points to a troubling
trend within an already wor-
risome statistic. Because
of the so-called Great
Recession and the slug-
gish growth thats followed,
middle-age and older work-
ers are not moving up the
career ladder. The natural
order of career progression
has been stunted.
I think that means that a
lot of workers arent advanc-
ing through their careers,
he said. Younger workers
arent going to be progress-
ing through their careers as
they did before.
number given them, they
are oftentimes undervalu-
ing their market worth.
Some hiring managers
will not have the leeway
to raise the offer, but its
never a bad idea to nego-
tiate, especially if you
have experience and pos-
sess in-demand technical
skills, Haefner said.
The most likely work-
ers to negotiate are those
applying for professional
and business services
jobs, the survey shows.
About 56 percent of them
negotiate, compared to
55 percent in information
technology and leisure
and hospitality and 54
percent in sales.
If hiring managers cant
meet salary requirements,
a majority will sweeten
benets, the survey
shows. About 33 percent
will offer a exible sched-
ule, 19 percent will grant
more vacation, 15 percent
will let an employee tele-
commute at least once a
week, and 14 percent will
pay for a mobile phone.
During the next year,
about 54 percent of the
hiring managers and
human resource profes-
sionals said they will be
open to negotiating sala-
ries on initial job offers.

A rise in rates has led to
losses for many bond
mutual funds, and
investors are continuing to
pull their money.
When interest rates rise,
bond prices decline
because investors can
purchase newly issued
bonds paying higher
interest than those issued
previously. That can lead to
smaller investment returns
or even losses for
diversified bond fund
shareholders, and for
investors in individual
bonds who dont hold them
until they mature.
Expectations are that there will be a steep decline in mortgage
refinancing activity as interest rates climb.
Mortgage rates have risen more than a full percentage point since
May when Chairman Ben Bernanke first signaled that the Federal
Reserve might reduce its bond purchases later this year. The purchases
have helped keep long-term interest rates low.
The Mortgage Bankers Association expects that total refinance
volume will drop from $673 billion in the first half of this year to $294
billion in the second half, according to a recent report from Stern Agee.
The latest report on unemploy-
ment is due on Friday. Although
unemployment remains elevated,
the job search process continues
to change. The online networking
site, LinkedIn, has had a definite
impact, according to a recent sur-
vey of executive search consul-
tants by William Blair, the Chica-
go-based asset management
In its latest quarterly survey, a
larger percentage of search firms
reported that their clients were
conducting more of their place-
ment searches internally. The
number reached 46 percent, up
from 34 percent in the third-quar-
ter of last year.

Rich Feldstein is a partner at
Nigro Karlin Segal & Feldstein,
a business management firm
with offices in Los Angeles and
New York. It caters to rock stars,
actors, athletes, executives and
other wealthy individuals. He
says that when youre stitching
together a financial plan, it helps
to assume the worst.
A lot of your clients are
has-beens by the time theyre
30. So working with them must
be different from working with
regular Joes, right?
I would say its a matter of helping
them get their arms around
reality. The ballplayers typically
start being admired when theyre
11, 12, 14 years old, so theyre
brought up in a false world of Im
invulnerable and Im the great-
est. But we have to assume the
worst. And there are very few that
go on to have productive careers
as coaches or announcers.
What do they do when they
cant play ball?
Its very difficult to make the
transition. Even though many
pro basketball players are
college grads, they were never
career focused. If theyre at
all entrepreneurial, we try to
introduce them to people that can
actually run a business, but who
need financing. We try to stay
away from restaurants, though.
The failure rate in restaurants is
extraordinarily high.
So how do you want them to
think about money?
This comes from one of my
favorite investment advisers, Ric
Kayne at Kayne Anderson in Los
Angeles. There are basically two
types of investments. There are
cows, where you milk the cows
every day and you sell the milk
and put the money in your pocket.
Thats like the interest on a bond
or dividend on a stock. You want
to have lots of cows.
Now if you want to have a sliver
of pigs, a pig is an investment that
you have to continuously feed
and love and take care of, and
you hope that youll sell it at a
price greater than what you have
invested. Your first pig is typically
owning a home.
Do you find that celebrities
are more susceptible to being

The boom for luxury retailers is slowing down.
Since the stock market bottom in early 2009, they
have enjoyed sharp increases in revenue. The slow
and steady economic recovery has
been helped by wealthier shoppers
who continued to spend, in part,
because they were less impacted
by job losses. This supports the
conventional wisdom that luxury
stocks are a safe bet because the
rich keep spending no matter what
the economy is doing.
But luxury retailer Nordstrom,
high-end clothing and accessories
maker Ralph Lauren and luxury
handbag maker Coach all recently
reported quarterly revenue results
that fell short of analyst expectations. Each of their
stocks has outperformed the Standard & Poors 500
index over the last five years. But over the last 12
months, each stock is trailing the broader market.
These companies reflect whats going on in the
marketplace. Luxury sales in North America are
expected to rise 5 percent to 7 percent this year,
according to Bain & Co. Thats after
growing 13 percent in 2012 and 9
percent in 2011.
Analysts say that slower revenue
growth is to be expected; as the
housing and job markets show signs
of a sustainable recovery, consum-
ers feel more comfortable and their
spending shifts to bigger-ticket items
like cars, homes and appliances.
But if investors can get accustomed
to slower growth, the stocks are
still good buys, particularly as the
holiday season approaches, says
Morningstar financial analyst Paul Swinand.
Nothing is going to take off like gangbusters,
he says. But these are good companies that will
continue to perform.
Luxury cools off
High end? Luxury stocks are trailing the market in the last year, but have been big long-term winners.

The rise of mobile computing is
hitting Intel. Customers are increas-
ingly turning to smartphones and
tablet computers instead of the PCs
that run on Intels processors.
Intel hopes that its Bay Trail chip
makes inroad in the tablet market,
but one powerful group of investors is
betting that Intel will still struggle:
hedge funds. Many are betting that
Intels stock will fall.
After surveying 708 hedge funds,
Goldman Sachs found that the group
had sold $5.7 billion of Intel stock
short as of the end of July. Selling a
stock short means an investor makes
a profit when the stock falls.
This screen shows other stocks
that hedge funds are betting against.
Hedge funds invest for big clients like
pension funds, endowments and
wealthy families. To be sure, they
dont have a perfect track record.
Some of the stocks they have bet
against have been strong this year.
Hedge funds had sold $2.3 billion
of Gilead Sciences (GILD) short at
the start of the year, for example.
The stock jumped 67 percent in the
years first seven months.

Mortgage rates ease
Average rates on fixed mortgages declined this
past week but stayed close to their highest levels
in two years. The rate on the 30-year loan was
4.51 percent. The spike in interest rates in recent

regulators reported on the industrys record-high

A smart wealth-building strategy
is to invest money methodically,
understanding that over the long
run, the patient investor has usu-

to get rich quick in stocks are often
just gambling.
The media present a momentary
drop in the stock market as unam-
biguously bad, and the possibility
of a longer drop as reason to panic.
The only ones who should panic are
those who need to sell their hold-

hold stocks only with money you
can leave in the market for five, or
even 10, years.
If youre investing over the
decades ahead, dont let a depressed
market depress you. It can be full of
profit-making opportunities for the
savvy and patient investor.

Wiring Profits
Move over, paper checks and
bank wires. A new way to send
money from place to place is catch-
ing on in a big way. Meet the online
money transfer, which will revolu-
tionize the industry of sending cash
from point to point. One of the best
ways to invest in this new develop-
ment is via Western Union (NYSE:
WU), which offers a convenient,
inexpensive way to send cash to any
country you please.
Once, Western Union was the
only game in town. But it got too
comfortable in its market-leading
position and lost exclusive contracts
with agents in Mexico while failing
to cut prices to thwart competitors
elsewhere around the world. Industry
rivals capitalized on that weakness.
It hasnt been the end of Western
Union, though. Remember, this
company survived the death of the
telegraph, so disruptive technology
is nothing new. Its already growing
its online business at a 30-percent-
plus annual clip.
Western Union still has major
competitive advantages. Its network
includes 500,000 agents, and it offers
some services others dont, such as
two-way money transfers. Its profit-
ability is unmatched, as it turns $0.17
of every dollar in revenue into pure
free cash flow (an average of $1 bil-
lion in each of the last five years).
With its P/E ratio recently near
11, Western Union deserves a
higher valuation. (The Motley

My Dumbest Investment
Young and Bilked
Twenty years ago, my wife and
I were newlyweds and did not
have a lot of cash. I talked her
into investing $3,000 into one of
her friends investment funds. We
liked him and his wife and trusted
him. He eventually bilked
us for the total amount after
buying a private airplane (in
which we received a short
ride for our $3,000 investment)
and a house in a warm climate,
along with many other luxuries.
He took his mothers only money
for retirement and many other
friends money, too. His monthly
reports showed great returns that
turned out to be false. We did
receive one check for $300. Not
close to what we gave away.

There are indeed some charlatans
out there, such as Bernie Madoff,
who also sent his clients falsified
reports. One red flag to help you
spot such fraudsters is consistent
high returns. You can earn high
returns in the stock market, but
not consistently. There will be

J.R., Sacramento, Calif.
Its rarely certain that a given
stock will rise or fall. Every
investor or analyst has his or her
own opinion, and sometimes,
inevitably, theyre wrong. They
can have different focuses, too.
Some might seek very under-
valued stocks, while others will
accept a smaller margin of safety
in exchange for greater possible
growth. Read the arguments, do
your own research and make up
your own mind.
Whats a high-yield stock?
B.S., online
Its one that pays out a rela-
tively hefty dividend, expressed
as the dividend yield. Dividend yield
is simply the current annual divi-
dend amount divided by the stocks
current price.
If McDonald Farms (ticker:
EIEIO) pays $1 per year (typically,
it would be $0.25 per quarter) and
trades for $25 per share, its yield is
4 percent (1 divided by 25 is 0.04).
Some solid companies, such as
Visa, sport low dividend yields.
Others, such as Google, pay no
dividend at all. Thats not neces-
sarily bad; it just suggests that
these companies have better
things to do with their money,
such as reinvesting it to grow
their business. Instead of a divi-
dend, they might deliver relatively
rapid stock price appreciation,
though thats never guaranteed.
Dividends arent guaranteed, either,
but with established, growing com-
panies, theyre darn reliable and
provide welcome income.

The Beauty of Bear
The stock market posted a string
of losing days in mid-August, lead-

all expect occasional bear

Divorce andhomevalues:
Till equity do us part
Mary Shanklin
Orlando Sentinel (MCT)
Forget the whole till death
do us part thing.
Many unhappy couples
are now calling it quits,
local divorce attorneys and
real-estate agents say, for
one simple reason: Home
prices have been rising,
which means they can nal-
ly get some start-over cash
out of houses that used to
be underwater.
So many couples have
been living together and
biding their time, Orlando
lawyer Leigh Sigman said.
I know many people who
have coasted for years and
touched base with me peri-
odically until they got
equity in their homes.
Before the 2007-09 reces-
sion, couples who divorced
vied rst for the children
and then for the real-estate
assets, Sigman said. But
once the economic down-
turn stripped houses of
half their value, the one-
time happy abode became
the hot potato that no one
wanted in a divorce because
it came with a mountain of
mortgage debt worse
than credit cards, Sigman
For better, for worse
or at least until the house
can sell for a prot?
Exactly how the hous-
ing market might be
affecting the divorce rate
is uncertain. In Orange
County, divorces were on
the downslide from 2007
to 2008, heading into the
recession, but the per-
capita rates for the county
have increased since then.
Meanwhile, home values
have had a bumpy ride over
the same stretch, bottom-
ing out in 2011 before rally-

photos of remote spots
Salvador Rodriguez
Los Angeles Times (MCT)
Mounted on cars, bikes
and even snowmobiles,
Google Street View cam-
eras have been scouring
the globe taking panoram-
ic pictures of roads, alleys
and buildings.
The images have rede-
ned the way people navi-
gate, turning two-dimen-
sional maps into a virtual
tour guide.
But Google is seeing
even more possibilities
for one of the most popu-
lar Web tools. The search
giant wants to turn your
smartphone into a Street
View camera and help it
take 360-degree, interac-
tive pictures of every nook
and cranny on Earth.
Eventually, Google
wants its users to be able
to view not only land-
marks and buildings but
also remote hiking trails,
insides of theme park
attractions, and beach
hideaways wherever a
smartphone can go.
We want to go every-
where. The idea with this
project is to show you the
world as it is, to bring you
good imagery anywhere
you might be interested
in looking, said Luc
Vincent, Google Maps
engineering director. At a
city level, at a street level,
indoor, outdoor, on a trail,
in Antarctica, in Africa, in
the U.S. everywhere.
But although many
travelers are lauding the
Photo Sphere initiative, it
is raising concerns among
privacy advocates and
watchdog groups.
Parker Higgins, a
spokesman for the
Electronic Frontier
Foundation, said that
although Google is not
breaking any laws, some
people already were both-
ered by Street View simply
because they werent used
to the fact that anyone can
type in their street address
and see their house.
In other parts of the
world, people are very
uncomfortable with the
idea of Google coming
through and photograph-
ing everything, and you
can imagine that theyd be
even more uncomfortable
with individuals doing this
and collectively uploading
to Google, he said.
Google has taken steps
to placate privacy worries
with Street View, such as
automatically blurring
faces and license plates
captured in photos by
Street View vehicles.
It has no plans to do
so for the Photo Sphere
images but said it has put
in place a team of modera-
tors to weed out racially
derogatory or sexually
explicit images. Users can
also easily le a report of
a photo that may include
privacy violations. Itd be
up to Google to delete the
Because the photos go
through the moderation
process before they are
even published, I dont
think we have concerns
about things slipping
through the cracks, and if
they do, of course we have
the tools that users can
use to report issues, said
Sierra Lovelace, a spokes-
woman for Google.
Owners of certain
smartphones were able to
take Photo Sphere photos
starting last November,
but Google ramped up
the initiative this summer
with a new Views web-
site where the images can
be seen.
To populate the website
with images, Google has
begun recruiting individu-
als to contribute, the same
way content was built up
for online encyclopedia

Howto de-stress your business frequent travels

Then came Pennsylvania,

With the advent of con-

other states, now we are

Ballance said of why
Atlantic City has to offer a
reason for people to make
the drive. The goal is to
show Atlantic City is not a
one-trick pony.
Gov. Christie and the
Legislature have played a
big role in trying to turn
things around and market
Atlantic City as a tourism
destination vs. a gambling

lighting on the Boardwalk
and getting rid of vacant
lots. It has full planning

the new district.
Casinos walled them-
selves off from the city,
Palmieri told the board.
We are creating more

The group stressed the
need for Atlantic City to
develop midweek conven-

the last few years, the
resort lacks the minimum
threshold of 25,000 rooms

Volvo Saved My Life
My name is Kathy. I am a wife, mother of two beautiful daughters and two golden retrievers. I am also the
proud owner of a Volvo!!!! In fact my family of 4, has 4 Volvos!!! We will never purchase any other brand of
automobile. I have a front license plate that reads VOLVO.FOR LIFE and no truer words could be spoken.
On March 31, 2007 my younger daughter and I were victims of an attempted carjacking. A wanted fugitive
was on the loose and a police pursuit of him was in progress. We were in our Volvo S40 and he came at me
head on, side swiped me and then hit me again in the rear with his Mercedes. He then got out of his vehicle
and put a gun to my head!!! I ducked to protect my daughter and he red the round into my Volvo. I hit the
gas pedal and ed the scene.
My Volvo, by some miracle, even with the damage it sustained got me away from there. His Mercedes was
disabled from the impact. My daughter called 911 and he was nally apprehended. My car was impounded
for 65 days and had $10,000 worth of damage. The state police told me if I were driving anything else we
would have been dead.
They also told us because it was a Volvo they were able to carefully take the interior apart, piece by piece and
retrieve the bullet which was lodged in the heater core intact. One of the ofcers said this bullet would have
stopped a moose dead in its tracks, BUT IT DIDNT STOP MY VOLVO!!!!!
The S40 was our rst Volvo and we still have it. Since that day in March we have purchased 3 more Volvos
an XC90, S60 and another S40. We are an all American family with a house on our cookie cutter lot with
two golden retrievers and 4 Volvos proudly parked in our driveway. I recently picked up a book called Volvo
Saved My Life and wanted to tell my story.

Abraham Lincoln said it best.
As the drums of disunion began to drown
out the softer melodies of comity and rea-
son, Lincoln, a candidate for U.S. Senate,
warned a convention of Illinois Republicans
that the nation could not escape its moment
of decision.
A house divided against
itself cannot stand, he said
in a celebrated 1858 speech. I
believe this government can-
not endure permanently half
slave and half free. I do not
expect the Union to be dis-
solved I do not expect the
house to fall but I do expect
it will cease to be divided. It
will become all one thing, or
all the other.
The showdown he foresaw
came three years later, when the guns began
to fire at Fort Sumter.
Today we face another division of the
house and another looming showdown.
This one will not be resolved with guns
the violence will be rhetorical but it will
be difficult, nonetheless.
We took a step toward the showdown
last week when the IRS announced that
married, same-sex couples will now be
allowed to file joint federal tax returns, just
as married opposite sex couples do. Adam
and Steve or Keisha and Rose will
be entitled to all the federal exemptions
and deductions marriage provides, even if
they live in states that prohibit same-sex
marriage. Washington will recognize their
union, even if North Carolina does not.
You might think that is simply proof
North Carolina and other recalcitrant states
are on the wrong side of history again
and will eventually and belatedly have to
concede the fact. Youre right, except that it
may not be as eventual and belated as you
Consider Article IV, Section 1 of the U.S.
Constitution, which reads, in part, as fol-
lows: Full faith and credit shall be given
in each state to the public acts, records and
judicial proceedings of every other state.
Its called the full faith and credit clause.
What it means is that each state honors and
recognizes the official acts of other states.
It is why, if you owe child support in
Alabama, you still owe it in Alaska. And
why, if you lost a civil suit in West Virginia,
you are still liable for damages in South
And why, if Massachusetts considers you
married, Mississippi does, too.
Or at least, thats the theory. While that
rule still applies for most of us, same-sex
couples face a patchwork of laws under
which their marriages might go from recog-
nized to unrecognized and back again sim-
ply by taking a road trip.
But if your home state says youre mar-
ried, and the federal government says youre
married, can Mississippi really say that you
are not?
That is the question at the root of the
impending showdown and sooner or later
likely sooner it will go to the courts,
probably all the way to the top.
The Constitution saying what it says, the
Defense of Marriage Act having been partly
overturned, the tide of public acceptance
being what it is, it is hard to imagine the
answer will be favorable to the foes of mar-
riage equality.
Once again, the hidebound elements in
this country will be dragged, kicking and
screaming, into the present. Once again,
change will come.
Once again as was the case with seg-
regation, womens rights, workers rights
that change will be something that is
imposed by the many upon the obstinate
That is regrettable. Change that is
imposed is almost invariably change that is
And resentment brings challenges of its
own. On the other hand, if those hidebound
elements truly require dragging, kicking
and screaming, last weeks IRS ruling sug-
gests the rest of the country stands ready to
accommodate them.
Abraham Lincoln spoke a verity for the
ages, one America would be well-advised to
heed. Make no mistake:
The showdown is inevitable.
A moment of decision is coming once
again to this divided house.

Threats could disrupt
core of democracy
Its a scenario that makes
reasonable people shake
their heads with disgust.
Last Tuesday, a month
after three people attend-
ing a town meeting in the
Poconos died in a barrage
of gunre, police 40 miles
to the northwest arrested a
Freeland man and charged
him with terroristic threats.
Authorities allege he threat-
ened to kill borough police
ofcers and ofcials and set
re to the town over a code
enforcement matter.
It also was a code issue
in Ross Township, Monroe
County, that allegedly
angered the suspect there.
While the Freeland
man was being arraigned
Tuesday evening, Ross
Township ofcials convened
publicly for the rst time
since the August shooting,
behind a metal detector
and under the protection of
sheriff deputies at the 911
center. Freeland ofcials
understandably postponed
their scheduled public meet-
ing in light of the alleged
Events in both towns

delay our representative
form of local government.
The heart of democracy
is for citizens to face local
ofcials and air their griev-
ances, and that had to be
shelved because of safety
A lasting effect might
very well be be that people

cerns may be dissuaded

A town hall is where
issues are debated with
spirit, if warranted and
eventually decided after suf-
cient discussion and delib-
eration. After all, having dif-
ferences of opinion openly
aired is key to what makes
our representative form of
government work.
Some town ofcials
already have been wary
and security conscious, and
more are likely to add pro-
tection. Armed guards and
police at a public forum can
be expensive and intimidat-
ing to some citizens, but
really, who could fault local
leaders now?
Sadly, as we approach the
twelfth anniversary of the
Sept. 11 terrorist attacks,
we have become numb to
the lifestyle changes that

Being frisked and

And now more of us can
expect to have armed of-
cers present when airing
our grievances at public
forums. That certainly does
not send positive signals
about the society into which
we are evolving.
It might sound simplis-
tic, but we have to work
individually and collectively
to curtail the violence that
threatens our precious
rights. After all, freedom
lost is difcult to regain.

Head trauma payout
is right choice
The National Football
League, unquestioned behe-
moth among American
pro sports collectives, does
nothing without consider-
ing the nancial effects. And
this is not mutually exclu-
sive from doing something
like the right thing.
Thats what the NFL did
in agreeing to pay more than
$765 million to settle law-
suits from thousands of for-
mer players who developed
dementia or other concus-
sion-related brain disorders.
One could argue that a
$9 billion annual industry
could have afforded more;
others say these former play-
ers knew the games risks
and took them anyway. And
before we go too mushy on
NFL altruism, lets be clear
that the league did not want
these lawsuits chipping
away at publicity with a new
season about to kick off.
No number would have
satised everyone, boosters
and critics alike. But beyond
the bottom line, the NFL,
without admitting wrong-
doing, did make the more
important statement of set-
tling with all 18,000 former
players, with the vast major-
ity of the cash going to com-
pensate athletes with certain
neurological ailments. It
also set aside $75 million for
medical exams and $10 mil-
lion for research.
Individual payments
would be capped at $5
million for those with
Alzheimers disease; $4 mil-
lion for those diagnosed
after death with chronic
traumatic encephalopathy, a
brain condition; and $3 mil-
lion for former players with
dementia. Tony Dorsett,
one of the greatest Dallas
Cowboys, was among the
named plaintiffs.
And, important, the
NFLs settlement money
will go to the former play-
ers, not attorneys litigating
what could have been a long
and drawn-out court ght.
There wasnt a whos right
or whos wrong here, said
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones,
who was involved in some
of the settlement talks. Its
just that the money will go
to the ones that need that.
Say what you will about
Jones and around here,
who doesnt? but he obvi-
ously appreciates the his-
tory of his franchise and the
He knows, as we all
should, that the NFL rose
to phenomenal popularity
and prot through the
hard-hitting efforts of these
retiredplayers, who didtheir
jobs when we all understood
far less about head injuries
and their long-term effects.
Many of these players have
passed away, but of those
still alive, too many struggle
with residual injuries from
their days in uniform. They
gave much of themselves,
usually in those years when
their paychecks were a far
cry from what todays pro
athlete might bring home.
Its jarring and sad to see
some of these former stars
on NFL Films video from
the playing days of their
youth, compared with their
physical struggles today. It
wasnt right, it wasnt just
and it wasnt tolerable.
An admission of NFL lia-
bility, to these players, isnt
the point. Whats important
is that the league is nally
putting some of its bounty
of today into a place it can
do the most good.

IRS move spurs showdown for change
We must avoid loss of ability to lead
In the annals of dishonest Washington
debates, the question of whether to strike
the Syrian regime of Bashar Assad in retalia-
tion for the use of chemical weapons is nota-
ble for its breathtaking incoherence.
Nor is this dubious distinction conned
to one side of the aisle; both Democrats and
Republicans have resorted to distortions and
lies to further their cases for and against a
limited intervention of the kind proposed by
President Barack Obama.
Among those against the
notion of any intervention in
Syria, there have been a vari-
ety of rationales articulated.
Among them, a U.S. missile
strike against Syrian chemi-
cal weapons related targets
will ignite a larger war in the
Middle East; intervention will
inevitably involve the commit-
ment of ground troops; chemi-
cal weapons were not used by
Assads forces but by the reb-
els; and most credibly, we have no dog in this
ght. Only this last argument carries water.
As the Syrian civil war has raged, Assad
has attracted Iranian ground troops, Iranian
elite Islamic Revolutionary Guards and
Hezbollah terrorists to his battle.
For their part, rebels who were once domi-
nated by domestic opponents of Assads
brutal dictatorship are now joined by a
hodgepodge of groups, many afliated with
For many Americans unfamiliar with the
Syrian landscape, the only question is why
we should care.
The answer is that unchecked, this war
will spill over to our allies in the region. That
as the worlds sole superpower, we have an
interest in preventing the use of weapons of
mass destruction. And that there is no great-
er blow to Iran short of an actual attack that
will diminish its power than the removal of
its greatest Arab ally, Assad.
Finally, some allege that any strike will
embroil the United States in a broader
Middle East war. But how?
Who will ght? Will Assad seek to bring
the full might of the United States against
him, rather than accepting a few empty mis-
sile strikes?
Will Hezbollah drag
Lebanon into a ght
with the United States
that could destroy their
already precarious
Will an Iran that has
been walking a tight-
rope in pursuit of nucle-
ar weapons for more
than two decades throw it all away to keep
Assad aoat? Or will the Russians choose
this moment for World War III? These are
ridiculous notions.
The problems posed by Barack Obamas
arbitrary red lines on chemical weapons use
in Syria are not about a wider war or boots
on the ground.
They are about an incoherent White House
policy whose advocates cannot explain why
Libya was a humanitarian imperative but
Syria is a sideshow.
Why death by chemicals is somehow more
horrifying than 110,000 dead by convention-
al means.
Why the time for attention to the Middle
East is over, but Syria is suddenly vital.
Obama administration policy leaves the
American people wondering what the presi-
dent seeks to achieve with a few missile
Will he decapitate the Assad regime? He
insists not.
Will he turn the tide for the rebels? After
promising to arm them and largely failing, it
will be hard to make that case.
Is it the world that is clamoring for
American action? Hardly.
And what next?
Are we working
to empower a
next generation
Syrian govern-
ment? Sorting the
Islamist extrem-
ists from the
true democrats?
Not to hear the
admi ni s t rat i on
tell it.
The challenge is how to help good men
and women rid themselves of a tyrant, and
how to help them replace that tyrant with
something that is not worse.
While a well placed missile might be a step
along that path, that is far from manifest.
The challenge of Syria for Barack Obama
is not a wider war. It is a complete loss of
American leadership, power and credibility.

youre seeking?
Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman
of the Joint Chiefs of Staff: I cant

Senate hearing on the use of
force in Syria, Sept. 3.
We have a problem.
The president pro-
poses attacking Syria,
and his top military
ofcer cannot tell
you the objective.
Does the commander
in chief know his
own objective? Why,
yes. A shot across
the bow, explained
Barack Obama.
Now, a shot across
the bow is a warn-
ing. Its purpose is to
say: Cease and desist, or the next
shot will sink you. But Obama
has already told the world and
Bashar al-Assad in particular
that there will be no next shot. He
has insisted time and again that the
operation will be nite and highly
limited. Take the shot, kill some
sh, go home.
What then is the purpose?
Dempsey hasnt a clue, but
Secretary of State John Kerry says
it will uphold and proclaim a norm
and thus deter future use of chemi-
cal weapons. With a few Tomahawk
missiles? Hitting sites that, thanks
to the administration having leaked
the target list, have already been
scrubbed of important military
This is risible. If anything, a pin-
prick from which Assad emerges
unscathed would simply enhance
his stature and vindicate his con-
Deterrence depends entirely
on perception and the perception
in the Middle East is universal:
Obama wants no part of Syria.
Assad has to go, says Obama, and
then lifts not a nger for two years.
Obama lays down a red line, and
then ignores it. Shamed nally by a
massive poison gas attack, he sends
Kerry to make an impassioned case
for righteous and urgent retaliation
and the very next day, Obama
undermines everything by declar-
ing an indenite timeout to seek
congressional approval.
This stunning zigzag, following
months of hesitation, ambivalence,
contradiction and studied delay,
left our regional allies shocked and
our enemies gleeful. I had strongly
advocated going to Congress. But
it was inconceivable that, instead
of recalling Congress to emergen-
cy session, Obama would simply
place everything in suspension
while Congress nished its Labor
Day barbeques and he ew off to
Stockholm and St. Petersburg.
So much for the erce urgency of
enforcing an international taboo
and speaking for the dead children
of Damascus.
Heres how deterrence works in
the Middle East. Syria, long com-
mitted to the destruction of Israel,
has not engaged Israel militarily in
30 years. Why? Because it recog-
nizes Israel as a serious adversary
with serious policies.
In this year alone, Israel has four
times launched airstrikes within
Syria. No Syrian response. How did
Israel get away with it? Israel had
announced that it would not toler-
ate Assad acquiring or transferring
to Hezbollah advanced weaponry.
No grandiloquent speeches by the
Israeli foreign minister. No leaked
target lists. Indeed, the Israelis
didnt acknowledge the strikes even
after they had carried them out.
Unlike the American president,
they have no interest in basking
in perceived toughness. They care
only about effect. They care about
only one audience the party to
be deterred, namely Assad and his
Assad knows who did it. He
didnt have to see the Israeli prime
minister preening about it on world
And yet here is Obama, hav-
ing yet done nothing but hesitate,
threaten, retract and wander about
the stage, claiming Wednesday in
Sweden to be the conscience of the
world, upholding not his own red
line but the worlds. And, inciden-
tally, Congress a transparent
attempt at ofoading responsibil-
What should Congress do?
To his dovish base, Obama
insists on how limited and militar-
ily marginal the strike will be. To
undecided hawks like Sens. John
McCain and Lindsey Graham, who
are prepared to support a policy
that would really alter the course of
the civil war, he vaguely promises
the opposite to degrade Assads
military while upgrading that of
the resistance.
Problem is, Obama promised U.S.
weaponry three months ago and
not a rie has arrived. This time
around, what seems in the mak-
ing is a mere pinprick, designed
to be, one U.S. ofcial told the
Los Angeles Times, just muscular
enough not to get mocked.
Thats why Dempsey is so glum.
Thats why U.S. allies are so
stunned. Theres no strategy, no
purpose here other than helping
Obama escape self-inicted humili-
This is deeply unserious. Unless
Obama can show the country that
his dont-mock-me airstrike is, in
fact, part of a serious strategy for
altering the trajectory of the Syrian

Hold on to your nickles!
Lunar outlook on a solar world
The Jewish holy days are like hus-
bands. Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur,
Hanukkah and Passover never arrive
quite when theyre expected.
Every time I get home, whether from
work or after running various errands,
my wife says either, Are you back
already? or I was
ready to call out the
National Guard.
And every year, as
Jewish women peruse
the calendar, only two
responses to the dates
are possible: I cant
believe how early (or
late) the holidays are
this year.
Ill acknowledge the
possibility that men
(other than rabbis)
also look up the dates
of the holidays and exclaim about them,
but strictly out of political correctness.
Ive never heard of a man doing so. And
to be honest, my best guess is that even
in the case of male rabbis, its their
wives who are ipping through the cal-
endar and yelling, Samuel, take your
good suit to the cleaners right now.
Rosh Hashana is going to be earlier
than your mother when she comes for
Shabbos dinner.
The earliness of the holidays is par-
ticularly extreme in the year that began
Wednesday night (Happy 5774, every-
body!). Rosh Hashana arrives so pre-
maturely that many Long Island school
districts arent starting the year until
the Monday after the Jewish New Year,
on Sept. 9. Having grown up in a part
of the nation, South Carolina, that is as
likely to adjust the school calendar for
Jewish holy days as it is to create dis-
trictwide vacations for Aztec fertility
rites, this warms me.
Hanukkah will be upon us so quickly
this year that the rst night is actu-
ally the evening before Thanksgiving.
This creates an unusual gap between
the Festival of Lights and Christmas.
It also guarantees my daughter will
receive a gift-wrapped can of cranber-
ry sauce as her second-night present
(which beats the slightly stained issue
of The Economist and matched pencil
and eraser set shell be unwrapping on
nights seven and eight).
The Jewish calendar is predicated on
the moon, and a year usually has about
355 days. Every important aspect of
our life on Earth, like when to plant
crops, switch out my wardrobe from
ski togs to tube tops, and crown cham-
pions in winter sports like hockey and
basketball (mid-summer) is predicated
by the sun, and a calendar of about 364
Yet our balky ways of measuring time
persist out of custom, holiness and
tradition, and for more people than just
the Jews. Its actually a harmless, fun
link to the past.
The Jewish calendar runs in 19-year
cycles, and seven of every 19 years are
leap years, to which a full extra month,
called Adar II, is added.
Granted, this is odd, but the
Gregorian calendar we all use in real life
has its oddities too: Leap year, which
adds a 29th day in February, occurs in
all years divisible by four (2012, for
instance) except years divisible by 100,
which are not leap years (1700, 1800,
1900) except for those also divisible by
400 (2000), which are. So its as simple
as that!
Trying to run a solar world on a lunar
calendar is like telling time with a ther-
mometer. Sure, its usually warmest at
4 p.m. and coldest at 4 a.m. and often,
using this knowledge, youd get the
hour right. But if you use the mercury
to gure out when to go to work and
a warm front rolls in overnight, youre
going to be very late.
And most Christian denominations
have the oddest of all possible worlds.
Christmas is always Dec. 25, but Easter
oats around the calendar like mad.
I could explain why, but Id need a
sextant, a telescope and notes from
both God and Epsteins mother.
Easter, in fact, will be on April 20
next year. That seems really late, but
far be it from me to talk smack about
the punctuality of other peoples holi-

to Obamacare
I am a 51-year-old female
living in Northeastern
Pennsylvania. I have not
had health insurance for
the last 10 years, and if it
were not for the implemen-
tation of Obamacare,
I would be looking at
remaining uninsured for
the next 14 years, until I
turn 65 assuming I live
that long while not getting
proper health care.
You see, as a clerical/
secretarial worker in this
part of Pennsylvania, the
odds of nding a job that
offers health benets are
slim to none for someone
my age. And purchasing
insurance on my own is
pretty much impossible,
as my pre-existing condi-
tions (arthritis, a back
injury and a thyroid prob-
lem not to mention
being female and over 50)
cause most insurers to
either deny me outright or
price me out of the market.
(Who can afford to pay
$700/month for individual
health coverage, especially
on a secretarys wages?)
But thanks to
Obamacare that problem
is nally going away for
me. For the rst time, I
have hope to have compre-
hensive health coverage
so that I can not only get
treatment for my existing
health issues, but also per-
haps prevent or treat any
new problems that crop
up with age before they
become life-threatening.
Come October, I nally
will be able to buy insur-
ance from companies that
cannot deny me cover-
age and that will actually
compete for my business
instead of rejecting me.
Can any of you under-
stand what that means
to someone like me? To
go from wondering if you
will live to see your 65th
birthday because you can
feel your health deteriorat-
ing but cant see a doctor
to even get a diagnosis, let
alone treatment, to know-
ing that you will, nally,
be able to have the cover-
age you need so that you
can get the health care
you deserve as a human
being? Never before has
a piece of legislation been
so vital to my future wel-
fare. I will ght to preserve
Obamacare at all costs,
because my life literally
depends on it.

News puzzles
army veteran
I dropped out of Avoca
High School. I have 10
years of formal schooling.
Will someone help me
understand several matters
that are seemingly beyond
my poorly educated brain?
How did someone like
Bradley Manning, a sad
sack E-3, come to control
the dispersal of top-secret,
vital military documents?
How did Manning come
to be in the army to begin
with? He makes Beetle
Bailey look like Gen.
George S. Patton.
The army and its wel-
fare are of particular con-
cern to me. I joined at 17.
In those days, you werent
kept out until you turned
18. As soon as I said I
do in the old Veterans
Administration Building
on North Main Street, we
ew out of Avoca airport
on a prop-driven DC3. I
considered the army as
much of a family as my
own, and Im an only child.
Now, while superb
troops are still dying in
Afghanistan, they barely
merit a mention in the
media, while certain ele-
ments tout traitors such as
Manning as hero whistle-
Many of the same peo-
ple who praise Manning
advocate for GIs to go to

of the Suez Canal and its
protection from damage by
radical elements is vital to
the U.S. economy and mer-
its possible military action,
we have no dog in the ght
in Syria. It is a human
tragedy, but both sides are
piratical bandits. The only
possible mission for the
U.S. in Syria is protection
of the WMDs. Period.
Lastly, Id like to say that
although I have limited
education, I was taught
that the mission of the U.S.
Army is to close with,
kill or capture the ene-
mies of the United States. I
never was told we were an
international police force
to hold the hand of foreign
Neither is it the mis-
sion of the U.S. Army to

Family thanks
all for help
On Aug. 9, we had a re
in our home in Mountain
Top that has changed our
lives forever. Even though
our hearts are lled with
sadness, we want to
express our gratitude to
the people of Mountain
Top and the surrounding
areas. Your thoughtful-
ness and generosity have
been overwhelming.
To the American Red
Cross and the many busi-
nesses too numerous to
mention who contributed
food and clothing, we say
thank you.
The community of
Mountain Top should be
so proud of three young
individuals Brittany
Randall, Adam Wood and
Justin Kraft who took
it upon themselves to
raise money to help our
family. We will be forever
grateful for the kindness
you have shown.
To the Wright Township
Fire Department, it sad-
dens our family to hear
people condemning your
department. We know
that you gave your all to
save our family and our
home. Since the re, you
have given endlessly of
your time to help us and
we will be forever grate-
ful. Your appearance at
my wifes funeral service
in Mountain Top and my
grandsons memorial ser-
vice in New Jersey was
very comforting to my
family. We know that you
share in our grief, but
together we will make it
through this difcult time.
We are trying to put
our lives back together.
The love, prayers and sup-
port that we have received
from family, friends and
the parish community
of St. Judes Church are
helping us through the
healing process, and we
thank each and every one
of you from the bottoms
of our hearts. We hope
one day to relocate to the

Obama fouts
the law
The increasing lawless-
ness with which President
Obama has been acting
in his second term is
not only scandalous, dis-
graceful and politically
motivated, but it is also
not going unnoticed.
In a strong rebuke
to the despotic actions
being taken by the Obama
administration, a federal
appeals court came down
hard on the administra-
tions Nuclear Regulatory
Commission by ruling the
NRCs delaying of a deci-
sion on a proposed nucle-
ar waste storage facility
was in violation of federal
law. In a majority opinion,
the court judges declared
that the Obama adminis-
tration was simply out-
ing the law, and that
Obama may not decline
to follow a statute or pro-
hibition simply because of
policy objections.
Obamas lawlessness is
also blatant in his selec-
tive enforcement of his
own health care act,
Obamacare, after it was
signed into law in 2010:
In 2011, he ended
the CLASS Act, a long-
term care insurance plan
originally included in
Obamacare that proved
to be unworkable.
This summer he
issued a one-year delay
on the employer mandate
that would force large
employers to insure their
employees or pay a pen-
alty. He also delayed pro-
visions that would limit
out-of-pocket health care
costs on individuals and
He has now ignored
legal statute and issued
a delay on anti-fraud
measures. Taxpayers
now are at signicant
risk for fraud and abuse,
as Obama seemingly
seeks to push as many
people as possible onto
Obamacare subsidies,
whether they are eligible
or not.
He recently circum-
vented a GOP amend-
ment to Obamacare
that have required mem-
bers of Congress and
their staffs to abide by
the same health care
exchange rules as every-
one else, by permitting
the Ofce of Personnel
and Management to
pass a special ruling that
accords Congress less
expensive employer-sub-
sidized premiums while
using the exchanges.
At a recent press con-
ference, Obama was
asked about his decision
to pick and choose what
parts of Obamacare he
enforced. He replied, In
a normal political envi-
ronment, I would have
contacted the Speaker of
the House, and asked for
help to tweak the law.
One must wonder what
Obama considers a nor-
mal political environ-
ment. Is it one where his
party controls both the
House and the Senate?
President Obamas fall
from grace as the can-
didate elected to cur-
tail executive power in
2008 is not only tragic,
but also his tyranni-
cal actions should be
immensely alarming to all

A missile strike on
Syria generates scant
enthusiasm in the United
Already one can per-
ceive the outlines of a
new anti-war movement
in this country.
In the past, anti-war
efforts have focused on
the harm we cause in the
countries where we inter-

ment is more broadly

selves is assuming new
A new anti-war move-
ment will be more sophis-
ticated than in the past.
In 2003, when Secretary
of State Colin Powell
gave the U.N. Security
Council a package of false
data about Iraq, the news
media accepted it.
Anti-war elements
debunked Powells data
within days, but that
debunking did not reach
the public at large. Now,
as Secretary of State John
Kerry recites new intelli-
gence data to rationalize
a missile strike in Syria,
scrutiny is quick in com-
Kerry has expressed
high condence that
on Aug. 21, the govern-
ment of Syria used a
nerve agent called sarin
against a neighborhood
in the eastern suburbs of
History should give
pause, and not only the
Iraq episode of 2003.
Back in 1998, the Clinton
administration sent
ocean-based missiles into
a pharmaceutical produc-
tion plant in the Sudanese
capital of Khartoum,
destroying the plant.
A component of a dif-
ferent nerve agent, one
called VX, was allegedly
being produced at the
plant, to be handed over
by Sudan to al-Qaida. A
State Department press
release at the time recit-
ed, The U.S. is con-
dent that this Sudanese
government- control l ed
facility is involved in the
production of chemical
weapons agents.
That condence was
later shattered when
independent analysts
were unable to conrm
any traces of such produc-
tion at the plant.
Regardless of how the
evidence plays out on
Syria and sarin, anti-war
activists are focusing on
examining facts.
Also gaining more
scrutiny are the aims of
a military action. Already
Congress is skeptical that
a missile strike in Syria
would serve a valid pur-
President Obama
claims that striking Syria
is in our national inter-
est, but his articulation
of that interest is mud-
dled, since Syrias weap-
onry does not threaten
the United States. He
hints at degrading
Syrias overall military
capacity, so perhaps the
chemical weapons are not
his only focus.
Are we sending a mes-
sage to Iran, perhaps
unrelated to the chemical
weapons issue?
Are we attacking only
because President Obama
inadvisedly made a threat
about use of chemical
weapons as a red line?
The anti-war move-
ment can now count on
greater public support. It
is able to draw on public
sentiment that govern-
ment might be better

Following a decade of
no-response to my com-
mentaries, many letters
to the editor, appearances
at board meetings, posi-
tion papers
and letters
directly to all
board mem-
bers request-
ing replies
or meetings,
I submit
this pro-
tocol for
changes at
Area School
The need is to address
a pathetic chain of events
that has resulted in indict-
ments for fraud, bribery,
nepotism and cronyism,
low student achievement,
aging facilities and a
mode of management-by-
crisis. The school board
seemingly has lost any
semblance of credibil-
ity with parents and the
taxpaying community. I
challenge anyone to nd
a school district that pro-
duced the outcry prompt-
ed by the news media of
Luzerne County reporting
on the Wilkes Barre Area
School District. It is a
complete humiliation that
affects our most treasured
resource, our children.
I want to congratulate
Super i nt endent- el ect
Bernard Prevuznak,
but condolences might
be more appropriate. It
appears that he was able
to get a $19,000 raise.
There is no question that
working for this board,
coupled with the challeng-
es he faces, he will earn
every cent.
The elimination of the
position of deputy super-
intendent is a major mis-
take considering all the
issues mentioned above.
Bernard, you would
have better off accepting
your present salary and
demanding a deputy. You
have a golden opportunity
to be an agent of change
extraordinaire due to your
three-year contract.
My proposed protocol
for change:
First and foremost, for
this board to achieve any
semblance of forward
movement, organizing
and implementing a plan
for regaining credibil-
ity needs to be item one.
Make an immediate public
apology and pledge that
behaviors will change.
Considering the depth
of the problem(s) it is rec-
ommended that an exter-
nal task force be estab-
lished. Not an advisory
committee, a task force.
A task force is an assem-
bled group of community
leaders who are stakehold-
ers trained to accomplish
a specic task, to present
ndings and choices to the
elected board for action.
Preferably, the task force
would be implemented
by this sitting board to
afford the newly reorga-
nized board in December
a foundation from which
to move forward.
In any other district
outside Luzerne and
Lackawanna counties,
candidate searches and
other employment issues
would not be a stand-
alone item. Because of
the deplorable fact that
its not what you know
but who you know, hiring
practices are a stand-alone
issue for this district.
Consider nepotism:
We are upset that it takes
place. Consider bribery:
We deplore the prac-
tice that has sent school
board members to fed-
eral penitentiaries. The
news media and radio
talk shows have reported
this issue relentlessly.
This single issue has been
studied to death by this
and previous boards. It
is highly recommended
that, due to the serious
credibility issue here,
the board establish a hir-
ing policy that forbids
the employment of board
members relatives in the
Wilkes-Barre Area School
District. Now!
Another serious cred-
ibility issue that continues
to raise its ugly head is
contracts or the lack of
contracts for services.
Misuse of the term emer-
gency repairs to bypass
bidding requirements
is only one problem.
Professionals working in
the district without writ-
ten contract is another
problem. Certication of
teaching and support staff
and possible use of emer-
gency certicates need to
be looked at as well.
Create a report, gener-
ated by administrators of
school buildings, show-
ing every certication and
expiration date for every
teacher and support staff
worker. Teachers, admin-
istrators, support and staff
not holding a valid certi-
cation should be given
timelines to meet certi-
cation requirements.
A review of all vendors
needs to be conducted to
see that all contracts have
been board-approved.
Be it the public or pri-
vate sector, management-
by-crisis without a mas-
ter plan is very costly. In
the ideal world, the cur-
riculum goals drive facil-
ity needs. When Dallas
School Board decided to
build a new high school,
curricular needs were
established and the archi-
tects designed the facility
to meet those curriculum
goals. In the Wilkes-Barre
Area School District, the
facilities to some extent
drive the curriculum. It is
no ones fault, the school
buildings are old and need
updating or need to be
Dont think for one min-
ute that facilities dont
impact student achieve-
ment. Considering the
size of the district, age
of the buildings and the
number of school build-
ings, a number of options
exist, including consoli-
dation, renovations, new
construction or a combi-
nation. From the piece-
meal studies that have
been done internally and
by architects, it is appar-
ent that a cost of $100
million is not unrealistic
in bringing the district to
where it needs to be.
Legislation has estab-
lished that a vote of the
taxpaying public must
approve this level of
expenditure. As such,
three factors will force the
much-needed updates to
be delayed for years down
the road: board credibility,
a failing economy and the
missing long-range plan
that would identify and
validate need.
To analyze curriculum
wants and needs, to estab-
lish the facilities needed
to meet the curricular
objectives, and to evaluate
the present facilities and
their adaptability, a mas-
sive study that leads to a
master plan is in order. A
master plan would lay out
timelines for completion
based on funding available
and enrollment projec-
A study of this magni-
tude will exceed a million
dollars; but we cant afford
not to do it. We just spent
$3 million on a football
stadium that might be
torn down. We have spent
millions upon millions on
high schools that might be
closed or torn down. The
fact is we dont know, and
until we approach this in
a business-like manner we
will never know.
This bleak scal picture
will change. The real-
ity that school districts
need to bring curriculum,
equipment and facilities
up to date will win out,
and the combination of
local, state, federal and
private funding will sur-
face. But be assured get-
ting that money will be a
competitive process, and
districts with validated
master studies in place
will have the advantage.
Fairly new to
Pennsylvania, major
capital projects must be
approved by a vote of the
taxpayers. The credibility
of the board and master
plan identifying needs will
be the catalyst to success.
