13 killed,including gunman,in NavyYard shooting
Ex-Navy reservist suspected of going on rampage at D.C. facility
BRETT ZONGKER, ERIC TUCKER and LOLITA C. BALDOR WASHINGTON — A former Navy reservist went on a shooting rampage Monday inside a building at the heavily secured Washington Navy Yard, ﬁring from a balcony onto ofﬁce workers in the cafeteria below, authorities and witnesses said. Thirteen people were killed, including the
gunman. Authorities said they were looking for a possible second attacker who may have been disguised in an olive-drab militarystyle uniform. But as the day wore on and night fell, the rampage increasingly appeared to be the Alexis work of a lone gunman, and Navy Yard employees were gradually being released from the complex and children were let out of their locked-down schools. Investigators said they had not established a motive for the attack, which unfolded
about 8:20 a.m. in the heart of the nation’s capital, less than four miles from the White House and two miles from the Capitol. As for whether it may have been a terrorist attack, Mayor Vincent Gray said: “We don’t have any reason to think that at this stage.” But he said the possibility had not been ruled out. It was the deadliest shooting rampage at a U.S.-based military installation since Maj. Nidal Hasan killed 13 people and wounded more than 30 others in 2009 at Fort Hood in
Texas. He was convicted last month and sentenced to death. President Barack Obama lamented yet another mass shooting in the U.S. that he said took the lives of American patriots. He promised to make sure “whoever carried out this cowardly act is held responsible.” The FBI took charge of the investigation and identiﬁed the gunman killed in the attack as 34-year-old Aaron Alexis of Texas. He died after a running gun battle with police, investigators said. Authorities were invesSee SHOOTING | 10A

Why Pittston property was not on tax rolls a mystery
County, owners dispute tax bill
Leaving a lasting reminder
W-B sees its 8th homicide victim of this year
18-year-old dies from gunshot wound as person of interest still sought
Luzerne County Assessment Director Tony Alu doesn’t know why a Pittston commercial building was removed from the tax rolls during the 2009 countywide reassessment, but said he added it back and issued a tax bill as soon as the error was brought to his attention in March 2012. The property owners, John and Angela Cooper, are paying the higher amount from 2012 forward, but said the assessor’s ofﬁce had no right to bill them retroactively for the county’s mistake, according to a recent court ﬁling ﬁled by the couple. Court action was necessary because the county has listed the property at 304 Kennedy Blvd. in Thursday’s tax sale due to unpaid taxes from the period the structure wasn’t taxed. Tax claim records say the Coopers owe $77,942 in school, county and local taxes See BILL | 10A

Harveys Lake property stirs controversy
Owners say councilman is in violation of zoning ordinances
HARVEYS LAKE — A Harveys Lake property dispute between a borough councilman and his neighbors that has been going on for nearly a year will come to a head
this month. Jeffrey and Mary Jo Algatt live at Pole 126 on Lakeside Drive and they will bring their grievances to borough council tonight. The Algatts contend that Francis Kopko, who resides next door at Pole 127, has been given preferential treatment because he sits on council. The Algatts contend Kopko has been in violation of several borough
zoning ordinances. Kopko denies the claims, saying, “I don’t go on their property, they shouldn’t come on mine. They think my property is theirs.” A hearing has been scheduled before District Judge James Tupper at 9:30 a.m. Sept. 25 regarding a fence that Kopko erected on the See PROPERTY | 10A

WILKES-BARRE — The shooting of a man at Boulevard Townhomes on Friday has turned into a homicide investigation, as the victim became the eighth person to die by gunﬁre this year in Stevens Wilkes-B arre and police continue a search for a person of interest. Luzerne County Acting Coroner William Lisman said Christopher Narainasami, 18, died at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township at 2:09 p.m. Saturday. An autopsy by forensic pathologist Dr. Gary Ross determined Narainasami, of Hazle Street, Wilkes-Barre, died from a single gunshot wound to the head. The manner of death has been ruled a homicide by Lisman. No charges have been ﬁled.

DALLAS TWP. — Bernadette Gately told the Dallas School Board on Monday night that her son, Bill, a senior, had been unfairly benched by the football coaching staff. “He had originally been benched for one game for a speciﬁc issue,” said Gately, “and I fully supported the coaching staff at that time, but I don’t understand why he has not returned
to the ﬁeld.” She said her son had played faithfully for the the last three years as a starter. “At the last game,” she said, “he wasn’t even announced.” Gately said she was coming to the board ﬁrst, before considering legal action. In another matter, resident Tom Dombroski questioned the use of propane as a fuel source for district school buses. He said its use was a safety con-
cern and he would be looking into it further, reporting back to the board. Dombroski inquired into the installation of strobe lights on the buses and was reassured by the board the lights would be in place by late September. Superintendent Frank Galicki said the parents advisory group would resume meeting in October. The next regular meeting of the School Board will be on Oct. 14 at 7 p.m.

Bear Creek Charter gets OK for sewage modules
Times Leader Correspondent
BEAR CREEK TWP. — The new Bear Creek Community Charter School project received conditional approval for the sewage modules from the Bear Creek Township Planning Commission on Monday. The board heard an informal presentation on the 62,000-square-foot school structure that will sit on part of a 97-acre lot near Forest Park. Representatives from Hemmler & Camayd, architects of the new school, and SM Design Group LLC, the project’s engineers, outlined the main features of the planned building, noting that the USDA loan being used for the construction stipulates that wetlands and streams on the property
must remain undisturbed and the plans will preserve roughly one third of the property will be preserved. The presentation highlighted a 2.7-acre wet pond that will be part of the plans and provide educational opportunities while taking care of the storm water control and irrigation needs for the property as well as a future dry hydrant. The majority of the presentation dealt with the proposed sewage disposal system, which the school construction team said will include a drip dispersal system for liquid waste after it is treated. Solid waste will be pumped out monthly, and the entire system will be inspected and monitored by a licensed sewage treatment engineer. It was noted that the school is
being built outside the Act 537 zone as deﬁned by the Department of Environmental Protection, and that the school does not plan to increase enrollment beyond the current 450 students, so the proposed treatment plant will continue to meet the school’s needs in the future. The planning commission voted to approve the plan on the condition that it meets with the approval of the township engineer. The engineer is expected to review the plan before the October township supervisors meeting, at which time the supervisors will be asked to approve the plan and send it on to DEP for review. School ofﬁcials and the construction team said they hope to have all approvals and begin construction in March 2014.

LEHMAN TWP. — An application submitted by the Dallas Area Municipal Authority to use the former M & M Trucking repair shop at 3337 State Route 118 as a solid waste and recycling center was approved during a public hearing Monday. The hearing was held before the regular Board of Supervisors meeting. The application was approved on
the condition that any trucks carrying garbage must be parked indoors overnight, Board Chairman Dave Sutton said during the regular meeting. Six trucks will operate out of the center; three garbage and three recycling, Sutton said, adding that the only maintenance allowed on the trucks at that location would be washing the exteriors. In other business, the board voted to give Police Chief Howard Kocher the approval to pursue the accredi-
tation process for the police department. Accreditation sets standards for the department to follow and is overseen by a panel of peers, Kocher said. Kocher also announced the department purchased two computers for the ofﬁce and two notebook computers for the police cruisers. The purchases were made possible by roughly $5,000 in state gaming money. The next Board of Supervisors meeting will be on Oct. 21 at 7 p.m.

The unusual event declaration was ended at 3:52 p.m. Sheehan said NRC did not have an exact estimate on what the level of radioactivity associated with the ﬂooding water would be, but that “the average American is exposed to about 620 millirems of radioactivity each year from natural and manmade sources, and the radioactivity contained in the water that leaked would have been a small fraction of that.” PPL spokesman Joe Scopelliti said
Woman threatened with gun says police
A Bronx, N.Y., man was arrested in Scranton on Sunday after he allegedly threatened his ex-girlfriend with a gun in Wilkes-Barre. Police responded to 175 Hanover St., where Narissa Lynch told them the father of her child, Alfonso Cabral, 22, threatened her with a handgun and ﬂed in a van. Police learned the van was headed to Scranton and alerted Scranton police, who, a short time later, stopped the van and took Cabral into custody. Wilkes-Barre police said Scranton police found a handgun on the ﬂoor near Cabral’s feet and seized a blue bag containing women’s clothing and two other guns, $1,600 in cash and drug paraphernalia from the van. Cabral was charged by Wilkes-Barre police with making terroristic threats and disorderly conduct, arraigned by District Judge David Barilla and jailed at Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $100,000 bail. Scranton police are expected to ﬁle separate charges. Cabral also was arraigned on possession of a controlled substance and failing to have a vehicle insured from a separate incident on Aug. 6 involving a trafﬁc stop on Wilkes-Barre Boulevard. Barilla set bail for those charges, ﬁled in a separate complaint, at $5,000. Cabral’s vehicle was impounded after that incident and the drug charge was ﬁled after Cabral asked an employee at the impound yard if he could retrieve a pack of cigarettes from the vehicle. The Falzone Towing employee saw a small blue bag protruding from the pack of cigarettes, refused to turn over the pack to Cabral and notiﬁed police of possible contraband. Police found a small amount of suspected crack cocaine in the cigarette pack, police said.
SALEM TWP. — The Susquehanna nuclear power plant declared an “unusual event” Sunday morning after 3 inches of contaminated water leaked from a cooling system into a room at the Unit 2 reactor complex. PPL and U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission ofﬁcials say the level of contamination was “low” and the public was never in danger. “The water that leaked inside the pump room would have had very low levels of radioactive contamination by virtue of the fact that it would have ﬂowed through the reactor,” NRC spokesman Neil Sheehan said. The plant declared the unusual event at 11:38 a.m. after operators received indications of the water leak. They responded quickly to stop the leak, which was contained in one
crews were able to contain the valve leak and clean the room, which was within the complex and has no exposure to the outside. The room where the ﬂooding occurred is equipped with drains, which would send the water to a cleanup system, Sheehan said. Once the water was removed, workers armed with protective clothing and radiation measurement devices would enter the room to remove any residual contamination, he added. In accordance with plant procedures, local and state emergency management agencies were notiﬁed of the situation. “We have traced the cause of the water leak to a valve on one of the plant’s multiple cooling systems. Other cooling systems were operational throughout the event. In keeping with our philosophy of operating the plant safely and conservatively, we will conduct a full investigation of this incident and make any necessary changes to be sure it does not recur,”
said Timothy S. Rausch, senior vice president and chief nuclear ofﬁcer for PPL Susquehanna. The reactor was not operating at the time, having been shut down on Saturday for workers to inspect one of its turbine blades after a sensor alerted them to possible cracks. The turbine, which rotates to generate electricity, is not part of the nuclear process but is powered by steam created by nuclear energy in the reactor. Unit 1 continued to operate at full power during the incident. Unit 2 remains under enhanced NRC oversight in the wake of two unplanned shutdowns in late 2012, following a control system failure on Nov. 9 and a valve failure on Dec. 19. Sheehan said Monday the NRC next updates its inspection ﬁndings and performance indicators for all U.S. nuclear plants at the end of the third quarter, and “at that point, we will be able to say whether there will change in our oversight posture for Susquehanna.”

State police: Mom finds meth bottle in son’s laundry
NESCOPECK — State police at Shickshinny arrested John Seltzer, 32, after his mother allegedly found a bottle of suspected methamphetamine in his dirty laundry Sunday. Jody Seltzer told police she gathered up dirty clothes in her Nescopeck house and, with her granddaughter, drove to a laundromat. When she emptied her son’s
basket of dirty clothes, she allegedly noticed a 2-liter bottle containing a white powder and liquid that had a strong odor of ammonia, according to charges ﬁled. A state police clandestine response team removed the bottle from the vehicle along with numerous items consistent with the manufacturing of methamphetamine, state police said. Seltzer, of East Front Street, Berwick, was arraigned Monday by District Judge David Barilla in
Swoyersville on three counts of manufacturing a controlled substance and one count each of possession of a controlled substance and possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $25,000 bail. State police said Jody Seltzer called them after ﬁnding the suspicious bottle. She said her son’s behavior changed within the last eight months. She said he claimed
her diamond ring was bugged and he had unplugged all electronics in their house because he believed the FBI was monitoring him, state police said. A search of their house late Sunday night revealed numerous items of methamphetamine production in Seltzer’s bedroom and attic, state police said. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on Oct. 2 before District Judge John Hasay in Shickshinny.

A homeless Boston man who turned in a backpack containing tens of thousands of dollars in cash and traveler’s checks says even if he were desperate he wouldn’t have kept “even a penny.” Glen James was honored Monday at police headquarters, where Commissioner Edward Davis thanked him for his honesty and gave him a special citation. James found the backpack at the South Bay Mall in the city’s Dorchester neighborhood Saturday. He ﬂagged down patrolling ofﬁcers and handed it over. The backpack contained $2,400 in U.S. currency, almost $40,000 in traveler’s checks, Chinese passports and other personal papers.
coffee shop. Her inventory was safely stashed at her home on higher grounds, she said. Emergency ofﬁcials offered a ﬁrst glimpse at the scope of the damage. Counties reported about 1,500 homes have been destroyed and about 17,500 damaged, according to an initial estimate released Sunday by the Colorado Ofﬁce of Emergency Management. The number of people still unaccounted for was dropping Monday as Larimer County ofﬁcials said they had made contact with hundreds of people previously not heard from in ﬂooded areas. With rescuers reaching more pockets of stranded residents and phone service being restored in some areas, ofﬁcials expect those numbers to continue to decrease. “You’re got to remem-
ber, a lot of these folks lost cellphones, landlines, the Internet four to ﬁve days ago,” Gov. John Hickenlooper said on NBC’s “Today” show. “I am very hopeful that the vast majority of these people are safe and sound.” The death toll remained at four conﬁrmed fatalities and two missing and presumed dead. Helicopter searches and airlifts resumed Monday as the sun broke through the clouds over the mountains. Rainy weather had kept the helicopters grounded most of the day Sunday and early Monday. On Sunday, military helicopters rescued 12 people before the rain, and 80 more people were evacuated by ground, Colorado National Guard Lt. James Goff said. In Estes Park, comparisons were drawn to two historic and disastrous ﬂash ﬂoods: the Big Thompson Canyon Flood of 1976 that killed 145

people, and the Lawn Lake ﬂood of 1982 that killed three. “Take those times 10. That’s what it looks like in the canyon,” said Deyn Johnson, owner of the Whispering Pines cottages, three of which ﬂoated down the river after massive amounts of water
were released from the town’s dam. Estes Park town administrator Frank Lancaster said this ﬂood is worse than the previous ones because of the sustained rains and widespread damage to infrastructure across the Rocky Mountain Foothills.
General petitioned to run for president
A group of Egyptian professionals, lawyers and ex-army ofﬁcers on Monday launched a campaign to collect signatures urging the country’s military chief to run for president, just two months after he ousted the ﬁrst elected leader. Organizer Rifai Nasrallah, a judge, said the goal of the petition titled “complete your good deed” is to make Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi give in to popular will and run for president, by collecting more than 30 million signatures around Egypt. The petition is modeled after Tamarod, or Rebel, a campaign which spearheaded protests against Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. Tamarod said it collected 22 million signatures demanding Morsi step down.

Russian shot in philosophical tiff
An argument in southern Russia over philosopher Immanuel Kant, the author of “Critique of Pure Reason,” devolved into pure mayhem when one debater shot the other. A police spokeswoman in Rostovon Don, Viktoria Safarova, said two men in their 20s were discussing Kant as they stood in line to buy beer at a small store on Sunday. The discussion deteriorated into a ﬁstﬁght and one participant pulled out a small nonlethal pistol and ﬁred repeatedly. The victim was hospitalized with injuries that were not life-threatening. Neither person was identiﬁed. It was not clear which of Kant’s ideas may have triggered the violence.

Family: Man shot didn’t know area
An unarmed man shot by police as he sought help after a car crash had moved to North Carolina to be with his ﬁancee and was working two jobs, his family said Monday. Family members said at a news conference that Jonathan A. Ferrell, 24, had lived in the Charlotte area for less than a year and was likely unfamiliar with the area he was driving when he crashed early Saturday. Police were called after the former Florida A&M University football player knocked on the door of a home near the crash. He was hit with a Taser as he approached ofﬁcers and then shot, resulting in a voluntary manslaughter charge against one of the ofﬁcers. A ﬁrst appearance was scheduled for the ofﬁcer on Tuesday after being postponed by a day. Ferrell’s mother said she was praying for the ofﬁcer, Randall Kerrick.
VERACRUZ, Mexico — Tropical Storm Ingrid and the remnants of Tropical Storm Manuel drenched Mexico’s Paciﬁc and Gulf coasts with torrential rains Monday, ﬂooding towns and cities, cutting off highways and setting off deadly landslides in a national emergency that federal authorities said had caused at least 33 deaths. The governor of the Gulf Coast state of Veracruz announced Monday afternoon that 12 people had been killed when a landslide hit a bus traveling through the town of Altotonga, about 40 miles northwest of the state capital. Gov. Javier Duarte said the death toll could grow as bodies were recovered. More than 23,000 people have ﬂed their homes in the state due to heavy rains and 9,000 are in emergency shelters. The heaviest blow Sunday fell on the southern coastal state of Guerrero, where Mexico’s government reported 14 conﬁrmed deaths. State ofﬁcials
said people had been killed in landslides, drownings in a swollen river and a truck crash on a rain-slickened mountain highway. Mexico’s federal Civil Protection coordinator, Luis Felipe Puente, told reporters late Sunday that stormy weather from one or both of the two systems also caused three deaths in Hidalgo, three in Puebla and one in Oaxaca. Getting hit by a tropical storm and a hurricane at the same time “is completely atypical” for Mexico, Juan Manuel Caballero, coordinator of the country’s National Weather Service, said at a news conference with Puente. Authorities in the Gulf states of Tamaulipas and Veracruz evacuated more than 7,000 people from lowlying areas as the hurricane closed in, and the prospect of severe weather prompted some communities to cancel Independence Day celebrations planned for Sunday and Monday. Manuel came ashore as a tropical storm Sunday afternoon near the Paciﬁc port of Manzanillo, but quickly began losing strength and was downgraded to a tropical depression late
Sunday, although ofﬁcials warned its rains could still cause ﬂash ﬂoods and mudslides. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said the system dissipated early Monday. The rains caused some rivers to overﬂow in Guerrero, damaging hundreds of homes and disrupting communications for several hours. Manuel was expected to dump up to 15 inches of rain over parts of Guerrero and Michoacan states, with maximums of 25 inches possible in some isolated areas. Rains of 5 to 10 inches were possible in the states of Colima, Jalisco and Nayarit, with possible maximums of 20 inches in some places. Authorities said the rains presented a dangerous threat in mountains, where ﬂash ﬂoods and mudslides were possible. Ingrid also was expected to bring very heavy rains. More than 1,000 homes in Veracruz state had been affected by the storm to varying degrees, and 20 highways and 12 bridges were damaged, the state’s civil protection authority said. A bridge collapsed near the northern Veracruz city of Misantla on Friday, cutting off the area from the state capital, Xalapa. Thirteen people died in the state this month when a landslide buried their homes in heavy rains spawned by Tropical Depression Fernand.
UN: Clear evidence of Syria chem attack
EDITH M. LEDERER
UNITED NATIONS — U.N. inspectors said Monday there is “clear and convincing evidence” that chemical weapons were used on a relatively large scale in an attack last month in Syria that killed hundreds of people. The ﬁndings represent the ﬁrst ofﬁcial conﬁrmation by scientiﬁc experts that chemical weapons were used in Syria’s civil war, but the report left the key question of who launched the
attack unanswered. The rebels and their U.S. and Western supporters have said the regime of President Bashar Assad was behind the Aug. 21 attack, while the Syrian government and its closest ally, Russia, blame the rebels. U.S., British and French diplomats said the ﬁndings of the U.N. inspectors supported their conclusion that Assad regime was to blame. Russia disagreed. Secretary of State John Kerry briefed U.S. allies on a broad agreement reached over the weekend with
Russia to end Syria’s chemical weapons program, pressing for broad support for the plan that averted U.S. military strikes. Kerry met in Paris with his counterparts from France, Britain, Turkey and Saudi Arabia before seeking a U.N. resolution that would detail how the international community can secure and destroy Syria’s stockpile and precursor chemicals. As a sign of possible difﬁculties ahead, Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov sparred Monday over possible mili-
tary action if Syria doesn’t abandon its chemical weapons. And in Geneva, the chairman of a U.N. war crimes panel said it is investigating 14 suspected chemical attacks in Syria, dramatically escalating the stakes. Paulo Sergio Pinheiro said the panel had not pinpointed the chemical used or who is responsible. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon presented the U.N. inspectors’ report to a closed meeting of the U.N. Security Council before its release.
PHILADELPHIA — The state of Pennsylvania has denied as many as eight of every 10 applications for cash welfare in 2013, a major increase over previous years, an Inquirer review of Department of Public Welfare ﬁgures shows. It’s a pattern being repeated in 17 other states. The increased rate of denials coincides with a change in state law. Before Pennsylvanians apply for welfare, they now must seek at least three jobs and document their efforts. Critics contend that the ultimate goal of the new rule, known as pre-approval work search, is to stymie applicants from getting welfare by making the process harder. “It’s about punishing the poor for needing assistance by adding another hurdle for welfare,” said Rochelle Jackson, public policy advocate for Just Harvest, an anti-poverty group in Pittsburgh. State ofﬁcials disagree, saying the new rules are meant to encourage people to ﬁnd work and to avoid getting on welfare in the ﬁrst place. “Our view is that a job is always better than being on welfare,” Anne Bale, a DPW spokeswoman wrote in an e-mail on Friday. Bale said that in July alone, as many as six out of 10 applicants who were denied welfare were turned away because they had found work and no longer needed welfare. The aid they were seeking is known as TANF — federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. A typical payout is $314 a month for a lowincome mother and child. Advocates for the poor were skeptical of Bale’s statement, saying they had seen no data to demonstrate that so many poor people were ﬁnding jobs in recent months. “It suggests the job market has really improved, and it hasn’t,” said Peter Zurﬂieh, staff attorney at the Community Justice Project in Harrisburg. According to the state’s data, the spike in welfare denials peaked at 81 percent in February after a decades-long norm ranging from 50 percent to 60 percent. The numbers began to climb in the summer of 2012, when Gary Alexander, then the Corbett administration’s welfare secretary, implemented the pre-approval work search requirement. In other states where a similar rule is in place, there has been “a sharp decline in TANF participation,” said Timothy Casey, senior staff attorney with Legal Momentum, a New York-based advocacy organization for women.

Wesley John Bouika, 58, of Viero Drive, was sentenced on a felony charge of intimidation of witnesses, which was changed from a felony charge of incest. He had been scheduled to stand trial Monday on the incest charge. been performed in the basement of the Valley Medical Center building located next to the Frank M. and Dorothea Henry Cancer Center. The new Women’s Imaging Center, located on the ground ﬂoor of the Henry Cancer Center, opened on July 29, and Geisinger ofﬁcials celebrated a grand opening of the $1.2 million facility last week. Michael Leighow, vice president, Radiology, Geisinger Health System, said Geisinger Wyoming Valley opened the Center for Women’s Imaging in the basement of the Valley Medical Center in 2007 and since then has outgrown the space. John Buckley, Geisinger Northeast chief administrative ofﬁcer, said GWV performs almost 11,000 mammograms a year. “We’ve just seen dramatic, dramatic growth and demand for the services here. … Our radiology team is in the process of recruiting an additional radiologist to help support the Women’s Imaging Center here.” Dr. Joel Patrick Cook, director of Women’s Imaging, said breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer. About 40,000 women die from breast cancer every year. Cook said the death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1989, with larger decreases in women younger than 50. “These decreases are believed to be the result of early detection through screening and increased awareness as well as improved treatment,” he said. “It’s our goal to encourage women to get the screenings they need to
Assistant District Attorney Jenny Roberts and Bouika’s attorney, Frank Nocito, agreed with the conditions that Bouika complete sexual offender treatment and have no contact with the victim in the case, now 36. Luzerne County Judge Michael Vough said Bouika must report to the county prison on Nov. 1 to go through an intake process to begin serving his sentence. Nocito asked for the delay in Bouika reporting to prison to take care of a “medical issue.” According to court papers, in February 2012, the woman reported to Wright Township police that Bouika had been sexually abusing her since she was 10 years old.
The woman reported the abuse started as touching and progressed to sexual intercourse and that Bouika would buy her anything she wanted. The abuse stopped for a while and resumed when the woman turned 16 and Bouika bought her a car. The woman said Bouika would use that as leverage against her to force her into sexual activity with him. The woman said she got married at age 19 and she and her family had no place to live, so Bouika told her to move in next door to him. If she did not have money for rent, the woman said, Bouika would approach her about having sex with him. Around 2003, the woman and her family moved into Bouika’s
home and if she needed food, milk or diapers, Bouika would engage in the same type of behavior. A few years later, the woman was having ﬁnancial difﬁculty and needed a loan, which Bouika provided. In return, the woman said, Bouika would ask her to engage in sex for repayment of the loan. Bouika then helped the woman and her new husband purchase a house, and the conduct continued until 2011. The woman said she told Bouika to stop bothering her and Bouika allegedly replied, “I will make your life a living hell.” The woman said she began to seek counseling and disclosed the abuse to her counselor.
PLAINS TWP. — After Andrea Sama had her annual mammogram earlier this summer, she received the phone call every woman dreads. “They said they saw something,” Sama, 49, of Pocono Lake said. “They wanted me to come back for another mammogram and a sonogram.” Sama returned to the the Women’s Imaging Center at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center and had the additional tests. Dr. Grace Boyle, a Geisinger radiologist, was in the room for the sonogram and, because the tests were still inconclusive, Boyle told Sama she would need a biopsy. “I was a nervous wreck. I was crying,” said Sama, whose mother had died of cancer (lymphoma) a few years back. Registered Nurse Tracy Symeon “held my hand and was walking me through everything” as Dr. Arthur Liss, another Geisinger radiologist, performed the biopsy, Sama said. “They took extra time to talk to me about my mom and calm me down.” When Sama received a phone call from Karen Snell, Geisinger chief technologist for mammography, telling her the mass in her breast was a benign cyst, Sama said she was “so excited. I said thank you, thank you.” While Sama appreciates the caring support of the staff at the Imaging Center for helping her through a frightening and anxious time, she also credits the pleasant, comfortable atmosphere at the new facility for making the whole experience less stressful. Sama has been using Geisinger’s imaging services since she turned 40, but until this summer, mammograms had
ensure their good health. We’re very excited to have this larger, more comfortable and convenient space open in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, when many women choose to schedule their annual mammograms,” Cook said. Space doubled The new Center for Women’s Imaging is about 6,800 square feet, more than twice the size of the former center. “Waiting and subwaiting areas are much larger and the decor creates a much more comforting atmosphere. It’s very pretty in there. The center now has its own external entrance and exit. … It makes visits more convenient for the patients. In the fall, there is a plan to add several parking spaces speciﬁcally for Women’s Imaging patients. And that will be even more convenience for them,” Cook said. Sama said the new center is “bright and cheery” compared to the former one, “so you don’t feel like, oh my gosh, I’m doomed. You feel better about it.” She recommended the center to other women over 40 for their annual mammogram. “Everybody should go and have it done when you’re supposed to. It only takes a few minutes. And they can take care of everything all in one spot,” Sama said.
Drums woman receives probation in the theft of over $30,000 from Red Cross
WILKES-BARRE – A Drums woman who admitted to taking more than $30,000 from the American Red Cross was sentenced Monday to seven years probation. Shelly Zito, 44, of West Butler Drive, was sentenced on a single charge relating to using a credit card to purchase $34,462 in gift cards she used for personal use. Zito pleaded guilty to the charge in June. Luzerne County Judge Joseph Sklarosky Jr. said the ﬁrst six months of Zito’s sentence will be served on house arrest without an electronic monitor, so that money she would have paid for the monitor can go toward paying off the thousands of dollars in restitution owes to the Red Cross. “I hope you realize the damage that you’ve done,” Sklarosky told Zito. “Some people will now be hesitant to donate to charities.” Sklarosky said had it not been for an agreement between prosecu-
tors and Zito’s attorney, he would have given her a stiffer sentence. “That’s the only reason I went along with this,” Sklarosky said. “You’re going to have to make payments … if you don’t, you’ll be back here on a violation.” Zito did not speak before being sentenced. Zito allegedly took the money because she was dealing with a shopping/spending addiction, according to the criminal complaint. According to court papers, in February 2010 an audit revealed Zito used an American Red Cross card to purchase gift cards for hospital sales. A surveillance video showed Zito purchasing gift cards at a local Walmart and then using that card for personal use.
Zito’s card history was reviewed from July 2009 through November 2009 in which a subject was chosen “contest winner” and named health care workers as “winners” of gift cards, according to court papers. The health care workers were contacted by police, who noted none of them was aware of winning any contest. In October 2011, police
interviewed Zito, who allegedly told them of her shopping and spending addiction> She said she began working at the Red Cross in 2001 and was promoted in 2008, which is when she received a debit card. Soon after, Zito said she began using the card to purchase gift cards in the amount of $25 and $50 and use them for personal use.

Police allege pair shot one man and pistol whipped another
Two men arrested in West Hazleton shooting
at about 2:45 a.m. Monday when Hazleton police spotted him in the area of East Diamond Avenue and Ceder Street. Christopher Vega, 21, of Hazleton, was arrested Sunday night when found at 455 Samuels Ave. in Hazleton. Police allege Comacho and Vega were involved in shooting Joshua L. Crutch, 20, inside 227 E. Broad St. and assaulting Leshawn Williams, 21, who was beaten and pistol whipped in a car. Comacho was arraigned Monday by District Judge David Barilla in Swoyersville on charges of robbery, simple assault criminal conspiracy to commit robbery and unlawful restraint. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $100,000 bail.

According to the criminal complaints: Police said they investigated gunﬁre at the East Broad Street house and found Crutch with a gunshot wound to his leg and Williams with multiple bruises and lacerations to his face. Six .40 caliber shell casings and four .40 caliber shell casings were found on the second ﬂoor of the residence and outside, police said. Williams told police he received a phone call from a blocked number and heard a man’s voice asking to go for a ride so they could talk. Williams met two men he recognized as “Els and Brisco” and got into a car. They drove to a shopping center on West Broad Street in Hazleton, where two other men got into the back seat, pinning Williams in the middle, the complaint says. Williams said he was struck in the head with a gun and was ordered to surrender his cellphone and $400, according to the complaint.

JENKINS TWP. — Two children reported a man tried to lure them to a van by offering them water and a ride home at about 6:30 p.m. Sunday, township police said.

Markets rally after Summers exits
Pain at the pump 1,000 times over
One thousand. Today marks the 1,000th consecutive day that the average price of a gallon of gasoline has been above $3 per gallon nationally. This is the ﬁrst time on record this threshold has been hit, according to AAA. The current streak began on Dec. 23, 2010, and AAA forecasts the national average will remain above $3 per gallon for at least another thousand days, barring a major economic recession. “Paying less than $3 per gallon for gasoline may be automotive history for most Americans, like using 8-track tapes or going to a drive-in movie,” said Jenny M. Robinson, a AAA Mid-Atlantic spokeswoman. “The reality is that expensive gas is here to stay, which is tough on millions of people who need a car to live their lives. While a few lucky drivers may occasionally pay less than $3
Stocks rose on Monday after Larry Summers, who had been the leading candidate to replace Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke, withdrew his name from consideration. Summers, a former Treasury secretary, was viewed as being more likely to rein in the government’s massive stimulus program. The president is expected to nominate Ben Bernanke’s successor as early as this month. The new front-runner is Janet Yellen, the Fed’s vice chair. Stocks were also helped by news that U.S. factory output rose 0.7 percent in August, the most in eight months.
As automakers race to make cheaper electric cars with greater battery range, General Motors is working on one that can go 200 miles per charge at a cost of about $30,000, a top company executive said. Vice President of Global Product Development Doug Parks wouldn’t say when or if such a car will be built, however. Currently GM sells the $35,000 Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid, which can go 38 miles on electricity before a gas-powered generator kicks in. It also offers the all-electric Chevy Spark subcompact that can go 82 miles on a charge. It starts at $26,685. Electric cars are eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit. The 200-mile car would cost about the same as the current Volt, and it would match the range and be far cheaper than Tesla Motors’ $71,000, all-electric Model S. The Model S can go up to 265 miles on a single charge.

current streak. Monday’s national average was $3.52 per gallon. In the greater Wilkes-Barre region, the average was $3.55 on Monday and in Pennsylvania, the average was $3.59. The increased cost of gas has an impact on the economy and people’s spending habits. “Spending more on gas concerns consumers because it reduces savings and spending for everything else we need. Our leaders can help alleviate this economic burden by encouraging a national policy that stimulates production, limits price volatility, ensures greater efﬁciency and promotes alternative energy,” Robinson said. Gas prices ﬁrst surged above $3 per gallon for eight days immediately after Hurricane Katrina Sept. 3-10, 2005. Before this current streak began, the longest previous streak above $3 per gallon was for 244 days from Feb. 17-Oct.17, 2008. The national average fell below $3 per gallon for 796 days from Oct. 18, 2008-Dec. 22, 2010, due to a weaker economy, which demands less gasoline and oil.

S. Koreans back at reopened factory
North and South Koreans got back to work Monday at a jointly run factory park after a ﬁve-month shutdown triggered by rising animosity between the rivals, with some companies quickly resuming production and others getting their equipment ready. South Korean business owners who have lost millions of dollars because of the hiatus say they’ll need several months to recover. “I feel good about the park’s resumption, but I also have a heavy heart,” said Sung Hyun-sang, president of apparel manufacturer Mansun Corporation, which has lost about 7 billion won ($6.4 million) because of the shutdown at the Kaesong factory complex. “We’ve suffered too much damage.”
CHICAGO — He has never been elected to anything, not even “student council in high school,” as he boasts. He has little patience for schmoozing. In dealing with people, he admits to being “pretty blunt” more suited to running a large private equity ﬁrm, which Bruce Rauner did successfully for 30 years, than seeking votes for governor, which he intends to do in Illinois next year. But the traits that might once have made Rauner a bust in politics are beginning to look like possible assets for a Republican in Illinois and for underdogs elsewhere across the increasingly polarized American political landscape. With three quarters of the states now dominated by one party or the other — the highest ratio in recent history — candidates from the other side often seem to have little chance on election day. In this environment, a handful of outsiders are gambling that the time is ripe for challengers who can break out of normal party mold. Instead of political skills or experience, they have chutzpah — and a lot of money. “I come from business. I don’t come from the political world, so I call it as I see it. And I think we need a lot more of that down in Springﬁeld,” Rauner, a Republican, declared to an audience of businessmen in overwhelmingly Democratic Illinois. “I can’t be bribed. I can’t be intimidated.” Rauner, a tall, big-voiced executive who’s worth close to $1 billion, is the star of a class of wealthy Republicans who take inspiration from Gov. Rick Snyder of Michigan and Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, who left the
business world in 2010 to beat established Democrats in Democratic strongholds. While technically Republicans, they ran as problemsolving CEOs. Tom Foley, a former venture capitalist, is expected to run as a Republican for governor of Connecticut. After losing by less than a percentage point in 2010, he hopes to take advantage of Democrat Dan Malloy’s low approval ratings this time. Scott Honour, who made his fortune in private equity and investment banking, plans to challenge Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton in solidly Democratic Minnesota. And Charlie Baker, former chief executive of a hospital group, is running for governor in Massachusetts. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party is shopping for its own business stars or mold-busters to run in Midwestern states where Republicans have taken ﬁrm control. The model is Mark Warner, a cellphone tycoon who took the governorship away from the GOP in Virginia in 2001. In Wisconsin, they have their eye on Mary Burke, a former executive at the company her father founded, Trek Bicycles, to challenge Republican Gov. Scott Walker. In addition to the success stories that prominent entrepreneurs tell, they can ante up resources that other ﬁrst-timers can’t. “The ability to do that is certainly something we look for,” said Danny Kanner, spokesman for the Democratic Governors Association. It’s still tough to buck the dominant party trend. In Democraticleaning California, Republican Meg Whitman, who built a fortune as CEO of eBay, resoundingly lost the 2010 governor’s race despite spending $140 million of her own money.
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - The gap in employment rates between America’s highest- and lowest-income families has stretched to its widest levels since ofﬁcials began tracking the data a decade ago, according to an analysis of government data conducted for The Associated Press. Rates of unemployment for the lowest-income families - those earning less than $20,000 - have topped 21 percent, nearly matching the rate for all workers during the 1930s Great Depression. U.S. households with income of more than $150,000 a year have an unemployment rate of 3.2 percent, a level traditionally deﬁned as full employment. At the same time, middle-income workers are increasingly pushed into lower-wage jobs. Many of them in turn are displacing lowerskilled, low-income workers, who become unemployed or are forced to work fewer hours, the analysis shows. “This was no ‘equal opportunity’ recession or an ‘equal opportunity’ recovery,” said Andrew Sum, director of the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University. “One part of America is in depression, while another part is in full employment.” The ﬁndings follow the government’s tepid jobs report this month that showed a steep decline in the share of Americans working or looking for work. On Monday, President Barack Obama stressed the need to address widening inequality after decades of a “winner-take-all economy, where a few do better and better and better, while everybody else just treads water or loses ground.” While the link between income and joblessness may seem apparent,
the data are the ﬁrst to establish how this factor has contributed to the erosion of the middle class, a traditional strength of the U.S. economy. Based on employment-to-population ratios, which are seen as a reliable gauge of the labor market, the employment disparity between rich and poor households remains at the highest levels in more than a decade, the period for which comparable data are available. “It’s pretty frustrating,” says Annette Guerra, 33, of San Antonio, who has been looking for a full-time job since she ﬁnished nursing school more than a year ago. During her search, she found that employers had become increasingly picky about an applicant’s qualiﬁcations in the tight job market, often turning her away because she lacked previous nursing experience or because she wasn’t certiﬁed in more areas. Last year the average length of unemployment for U.S. workers reached 39.5 weeks, the highest level since World War II. The duration of unemployment has since edged lower to 36.5 weeks based on data from January to July, still relatively high historically. Economists call this a “bumping down” or “crowding out” in the labor market, a domino effect that pushes out lower-income workers, pushes median income downward and contributes to income inequality. Because many mid-skill jobs are being lost to globalization and automation, recent U.S. growth in lowwage jobs has not come fast enough to absorb displaced workers at the bottom. Low-wage workers are now older and better educated than ever, with especially large jumps in those with at least some college-level training.

A Division Street bridge in Hanover Township is one of scores in Luzerne County deemed structurally deficient.
Pete G. Wilcox | The Times Leader
OUR OPINION: BRIDGE REPAIRS
Casey calls attention to risky bridge neglect
These are the raw and depressing numbers that should put every state and federal lawmaker to shame: In Luzerne County alone, there are 122 deﬁcient bridges handling combined daily trafﬁc of 721,205 vehicles. That’s 27 percent of the county’s 445 bridges and 21 percent of all bridge trafﬁc. And it is surely one reason Pennsylvania has the dubious distinction of ranking number one among all 50 states in deﬁcient bridges, with a staggering 5,543 bridges in need of repair. That’s almost one out of every four bridges. Harrisburg — a city known for its own high number of bridges crossing the Susquehanna River — proved deaf to this dilemma recently when the state Senate managed to muster approval of a bill to boost money for repairs, only to have the bill wither in the House. Enter U.S. Sen. Robert Casey, D-Scranton, who announced his proposal to boost federal funding for bridges owned by counties and municipalities, typically the most neglected spans simply because so many local governments are acutely cash-strapped. “These bridges are relied upon for many people and especially for emergency vehicles like ﬁre trucks, ambulances and police vehicles,” Casey said during a teleconference last week. “That can result in tragedies we don’t even want to contemplate.” The weakness in Casey’s plan: He’s shufﬂing existing federal money around, not increasing it. More bridges will get ﬁxed, but something else on the federal transportation to-do list will be left undone. Still, at the very least the proposal calls attention to a very real problem that does not go away simply because legislators, particularly at the state and local level, tend to close their eyes to it. It behooves pols to remember bridges are needed for safety and commerce. No one disputes that money is tight, but neglecting road infrastructure, particularly bridges, is a loselose habit that has to end.
OTHER OPINION: JOB DISCRIMINATION
Pennsylvania law, like federal law, bans discrimination on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, age and disability. And state law, like federal law, does not explicitly ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. It’s time to change both, starting with twin bills in the state House and state Senate that would make such discrimination in the workplace and in housing illegal in Pennsylvania. But it’s going to take a concerted effort to get the law enacted. House Bill 300 and Senate Bill 300 have been introduced before without success. Similar proposals go back as far as 2001 but never made it to ﬂoor votes, yet 21 states, including New York, New Jersey and Maryland, and 33 municipalities in Pennsylvania have such anti-discrimination laws on the books. One difference this year is that both bills have bipartisan sponsorship — Democrat Dan Frankel of Squirrel Hill and Republican Chris Ross of Chester County in the House and Democrat Lawrence M. Farnese Jr. of Philadelphia and Republican Patrick M. Browne of Lehigh County in the Senate. The measures have signiﬁcant support, with 90 co-sponsors in the House and 25 in the Senate. In addition, the anti-discrimination plans have public support. Susquehanna Polling and Research reports that 72 percent of
Ban job discrimination for sexual orientation
Pennsylvanians favor banning discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. Unfortunately, none of this ensures the bills will get a vote, particularly in the House. The obstacle there is Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, the Cranberry Republican who chairs the House Government Committee, where the bill sits. In typical fashion, Mr. Metcalfe opposes this plan by standing its intention on its head, asserting that giving gay people the same protection against unfair ﬁring or housing discrimination as other Pennsylvanians will infringe upon, in his words, “the rights of individuals who have religious objections to that type of lifestyle.” Public shaming might not convince Mr. Metcalfe to schedule hearings and a vote, but perhaps Mr. Frankel’s economic argument will be persuasive. In his sponsorship memo, he pointed out that all Fortune 500 companies headquartered in the state have nondiscrimination policies because they regard them as good business practice. Republican leaders, who preside over the party of business and the party that controls the Legislature, must ensure that Mr. Metcalfe releases this common-sense bill for a ﬂoor vote.
As the state legislature grapples with revisions to Act 47 in order to better enable ﬁnancially distressed communities to emerge from the program, one hard truth remains — a strengthened Act 47 fails to address the core issues that are sending an increasing number of municipalities tumbling over a ﬁscal cliff. Across the Commonwealth, cities are generating less revenue from available tax sources. As taxes fall short and service costs rise, cities are increasingly relying on borrowing, asset sales and other non-traditional methods to ﬁll the gap. Boroughs are facing similar challenges. Even townships are on the cusp of ﬁscal problems as once-soaring tax revenues are trending ﬂat or declining. The situation endangers the provision of adequate public safety and public works services to Pennsylvania residents. To ensure that communities are able to provide for the health, safety and welfare of their citizens, municipalities need to have additional options for providing services so they can remain on sound ﬁnancial footing and avoid a crisis that leads to Act 47. The fact that so many municipalities have failed to exit Act 47 is telling. Most cannot survive without the enhancements that the program offers. Pennsylvania’s municipalities are broken into thousands of puzzle pieces with each one offering — and funding — its own brand of public safety and public works services. Meanwhile, Pennsylvania’s citizens exist regionally. They make their home in one community, work in another, shop in a third and travel back and forth through others. As a result, there is a mismatch
Cities can avoid fiscal cliff problem with regional service districts
between the current method of service delivery and the way residents live that represents a failure of local government. The current disconnect is costly not only to municipalities that increasingly cannot afford to offer and fund services within con- Gerald strained boundaries. It Cross also shortchanges resiContributing dents who deserve safe Columnist homes and safe communities with plowed and maintained streets regardless of where they live, work or play. The fragmented system has another human cost as vital public sector workers become demoralized as they see their work demeaned and jobs endangered by municipalities that are forced to pinch pennies. These employees perform crucial services that keep our communities secure and well maintained. It is a hard reality, but in order to retain those services, we must pay for them. The need for regional service delivery is not a new concept. Many local government pundits advocate municipal merger as the preferred method to achieve that goal. However, consolidation is a complicated process that results in a perceived loss of local identity. When given the opportunity, citizens more often than not vote against the merger of their communities. Clearly, a fresh approach is needed. Move the focus away from consolidating local governments and toward providing better tools for regional service delivery similar to the mechanisms
COMMENTARY: GERALD CROSS
now used by school districts – a dedicated funding source and a degree of permanence once the service relationship is established. One option is to use special-purpose taxation levied through a uniform millage by the member municipalities to fund a uniﬁed budget for a special service delivery area. Each municipality would provide a portion of its existing tax base. This alternative would provide a dedicated source of funding. It would also carry a requirement that after voluntarily participation, communities could exit only if more than 50 percent of the municipalities representing more than 50 percent of the population in the district agreed to end the relationship. That is the model used by the successful existing county solid waste legislation. Municipal governments would continue to represent the interest of their constituents, ﬁelding complaints about barking dogs, speeding cars and potholed streets. But instead of directly running public safety and public works, they’d simply “write a check” in the form of tax base sharing to the service delivery district and relay any concerns that they or their residents have regarding the services. Pennsylvania is at a critical junction. If we fail to reform the way local governments operate, we will see more and more communities tumble into Act 47 with no way to claw themselves out, but plenty of reason for residents to move out for other states that take a more modern approach to service delivery.

YOUR OPINION: LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
So to protest the killing of innocent people, we’re going to kill additional innocent people in order to stop mad killers from killing even more innocent people? Brilliant strategy!
Don’t stop killers with more killing
Don’t play politics on health care act
My, oh my, we’ve got a real pair and a spare.
Why is it that U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta and our illustrious governor are still against the Affordable Care Act? More and more it’s proving to be a cost saver and a real boon to so many citizens with pre-existing conditions and an inability to pay for insurance. Even premiums are coming down. But our dynamic trio would still rather play politics than support our own neighbors. As they each stand for reelection, will they ask those people whom they have harmed for a vote? You bet they will. Conscience will not enter into their campaigns.

From page 1A tigating how he got onto the base. Ofﬁcials said he may have had a badge that allowed access. At the time of the rampage, he was working in information technology with a company that was a Defense Department subcontractor. Alexis was a full-time Navy reservist from 2007 to early 2011, leaving as a petty ofﬁcer third class, the Navy said. It did not say why he left. He had been an aviation electrician’s mate with a unit in Fort Worth, Texas. Patricia Ward, a logistics-management specialist, said she was in the cafeteria getting breakfast. “It was three gunshots straight in a row — pop, pop, pop. Three seconds later, it was pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, so it was like about a total of seven gunshots, and we just started running,” Ward said. In addition to those killed, more than a dozen people were hurt, including a police ofﬁcer and two female civilians who were shot and wounded. They were all expected to survive. The Washington Navy Yard is a sprawling labyrinth of buildings and streets protected by armed guards and metal detectors, and employees have to show their IDs at doors and gates to come and go. About 20,000 people work there. The rampage took place at Building 197, the headquarters for Naval Sea Systems Command, which buys, builds and maintains ships, submarines and combat systems. About 3,000 people work at headquarters, many of them civilians. Witnesses described a gunman opening ﬁre from a fourth-ﬂoor overlook, aiming down on people in the cafeteria on the main ﬂoor. Others said a gunman ﬁred at them in a third-ﬂoor hallway. Todd Brundidge, started ﬁring,” Brundidge said. Terrie Durham, an executive assistant with the same agency, said the gunman ﬁred toward her and Brundidge. “He aimed high and missed,” she said. “He said nothing. As soon as I realized he was shooting, we just said, ‘Get out of the building.’ ” Police would not give any details on the gunman’s weaponry, but witnesses said the man they saw had a long gun — which can mean a riﬂe or a shotgun. In the confusion, police said around midday that they were searching for two men who may have taken part in the attack — one carrying a handgun and wearing a tan Navy-style uniform and a beret, the other armed with a long gun and wearing an olive-green uniform. Washington Police Chief Cathy Lanier said it was unclear if the men were members of the military. But later in the day, police said the man in the tan uniform had been identiﬁed and was not involved in the shooting. As emergency vehicles and law enforcement ofﬁcers ﬂooded streets around the complex, a helicopter hovered, nearby schools were locked down and airplanes at nearby Reagan National Airport were grounded so they would not interfere with law-enforcement choppers. Security was tightened at other federal buildings. Senate ofﬁcials shut down their side of the Capitol while authorities searched for the potential second attacker. The House remained open. Adm. Jonathan Greenert, chief of naval operations, was at the base at the time the shooting began but was moved unharmed to a nearby military installation. Anxious relatives and friends of those who work at the complex waited to hear from loved ones.

From page 1A plus interest for 2009, 2010 and 2011. A county judge is expected to pull the property from Thursday’s sale, though no court order was entered into the civil court record system as of Monday afternoon, according to representatives of Northeast Revenue Service LLC, the county’s tax claim operator. Alu said the law is vague on recouping back-tax payment due to county error, and he opted to take a proactive approach in his bill to the Coopers. He said all taxing bodies received a copy of his March 2012 letter to the Coopers billing them for 2009 through 2011, and none raised objections or concerns. His ofﬁce was criticized last year when it did not try to force the owners of the Courthouse Towers building on North River Street to pay back taxes after Alu discovered a coding error that had caused the property to be incorrectly labeled as tax-exempt from 2006 through 2009. “There’s a big contention about whether we can go back and capture back taxes on missed properties,” Alu said Monday. Court ﬁling In the court ﬁling on the Cooper property, Dunmore attorney Mark J. Conway says the “retro-application of real estate taxes is not proper.” The issue of taxing missed properties is governed by the Consolidated County Assessment Law approved by state legislators in January 2011, Conway wrote. “There is no mention of or authority for retroactivity in that subsection,” he said. In comparison, the Second Class County Assessment Law explicitly allows taxation up to ﬁve years back when missed properties are added to the tax rolls, but Conway said this law doesn’t apply to Luzerne, which is a third-class county. Conway also argues Alu’s March 2012 notice does not constitute sufﬁcient notice of an assessment change because it lacked some details and did not inform the Coopers they had the right to challenge the assessment change to the county assessment appeals board within 40 days of the notice. The property should be removed from the sale to allow the legal disagreement to be resolved in court, he said. The property was assessed at $21,400 for the land but no structure when the reassessment took effect, county records show. In March 2012, the county valued the property at $796,300 for taxation purposes — $50,000 for the land and $746,300 for the building. The Coopers have paid taxes from 2009 through 2011 as billed by the county before Alu’s March 2012 letter and also paid 2012 and 2013 taxes at the new increased amount, the court ﬁling says. Conway, who could not be reached for comment, said in the ﬁling the couple had no involvement in county procedures that resulted in the structure being “dropped” during the three-year period. The Coopers called the county seeking an explanation for why their taxes decreased in 2009 but never received a response, he said. Alu said both the land and structure — the former Pittston Apparel Co. — were on the tax rolls until the countywide reassessment, which was handled by 21st Century Appraisals Inc. A listing of the new reassessment values was sent to all taxing bodies, but Alu said nobody noticed the dropped Cooper property, which is among 168,000 parcels in the county. Early last year, Alu received a call from one of the taxing bodies alerting him the structure was not taxed. Court guidance He said the outcome of the court case will guide his ofﬁce if missed properties are discovered in the future. “This is something the attorneys and court will have to work out among themselves,” Alu said. The Coopers, who own the neighboring Cooper’s Seafood House restaurant, could not be reached for comment Monday. They purchased the brick, fourstory commercial structure on 2.4 acres for $275,000 in 1993. A tax sale notice sent to the Coopers indicated the property would be listed for around $115,766 in Thursday’s sale to cover the $77,943 in unpaid taxes and interest and transfer tax. Properties that don’t sell in Thursday’s ﬁrst-stage auction advance to a free-and-clear sale, when all back taxes and liens are forgiven.
From page 1A person of interest in the deadly shooting. Stevens is known to frequent the Brownsville area of Brooklyn, N.Y., and is described as a light-skinned black male, about 5 feet, 10 inches tall, 170 pounds with short hair, brown eyes with a grim reaper tattoo on his right arm from elbow to wrist, and tattoo initials of “J.T.” on his right wrist. Police consider Stevens “armed and dangerous.” Stevens previously resided on North River Street and Eastview Drive, Sherman Hills, both in Wilkes-Barre, according to court records. Police said Stevens is wanted by the state Department of Probation and Parole. He was released from state prison in October 2012 after serving a sentence for a home invasion in Wilkes-Barre nearly eight years ago. Court records say Stevens was one of three men who forced their way into an apartment at 565 N. River St. and assaulted three people, including a woman who held a baby, on Dec. 12, 2005. One of the invaders shot a man in the hip with a small caliber gun that was later found by Luzerne County deputy sheriffs in Stevens’ residence at 244 Eastview Drive on June 7, 2006. Police said surveillance footage of Friday’s shooting shows three men returning to the complex at about 12:45 a.m. As the three men walked past the shooter, the gunman turned and ﬁred several times without provocation, police said. Police said the preliminary investigation does not reveal any motive for the shooting. Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Stevens is asked to call Wilkes-Barre police at 2084200 or 911.
From page 1A property line. The Algatts say the fence restricts their ability to access their basement where the home’s heating unit is, creating an unsafe condition. Mayor Clarence Hogan called it a “spite fence.” There are signs on the fence that read: “No Trespassing” and “Posted — Private Property.” There are other issues, Algatt said, such as altering of storm drainage, buckets of stagnant rain water that have served as a breeding ground for mosquitoes, dilapidated wooden structures that are in danger of collapsing and high weeds, grass and litter strewn about the Kopko property. Charles McCormick, the borough solicitor,

He said the borough has hired an independent company under the state Uniform Construction Code to assess the properties and review the complaints and cross-complaints to determine what action, if any, the borough should take. Kopko said he has not encroached on Algatt’s property. He said having his neighbor’s propane tanks on his property
creates a liability issue for him and his wife. He said delivery trucks must come onto his property to service the Algatt residence, another liability issue. “They planted arborvitaes on my property,” he said. “I’ve had the property surveyed to determine where the actual lines are.” Andy Luzetski, borough zoning ofﬁcer, said he couldn’t comment on the situation on the advice of the solicitor, but he said he wanted to make one point clear. “Mr. Kopko has not received any preferential treatment because he is on council,” he said. “That rumor is absolutely untrue.” Kopko has lived on his property for 43 years. The Algatts moved into their
home 13 months ago. The Algatts detailed their case in a letter to all council members, the mayor and solicitor. In the letter they state, “We have come to believe that (the Kopko property) is in violation of several ordinances that threatens the health, safety and welfare of us, our property and our neighborhood.” The Algatts said they are not on “a political witch hunt” — they, like Kopko, are Republicans. The Algatts said they wrote the letter — dated Aug. 21 — to try to resolve the matter rather than bring it up at a public meeting. Mary Jo Algatt said that because council has not addressed the concerns, she and her husband will ask for Charlotte Bartizek | For The Times Leader a public explanation at Mary Jo Algatt, of Pole 126, Harveys Lake, stands next to a wire fence her neighbor, Francis Kopko, has erected on the property line.

Nats game postponed following shooting
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The Washington Nationals postponed Monday night’s game against the Atlanta Braves following shootings at the nearby Navy Yard. The game was rescheduled as part of a day-night doubleheader today. “It’s a very emotional day. An extremely horriﬁc act happened very near to the ballpark,” Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims
over there and all the people affected by this. We felt it was inappropriate to play a major league baseball game with such tragedy right down the street.” Located just blocks from the Navy Yard, one of the stadium’s parking lots was used for families of the Navy Yard employees to meet following the evacuation of the facility. “Major League Baseball mourns those who have been lost to this senseless See NATS | 3B
CINCINNATI — Running back Giovani Bernard scored his ﬁrst two NFL touchdowns, one of them on a short pass that he turned into a 27-yard score, and the Cincinnati Bengals defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 20-10 on Monday night. The second-round draft pick had a 7-yard touchdown run in the ﬁrst half and turned a short pass from Andy Dalton into a third-quarter score, a preview of what the Bengals’ offense could become with a pass-catching threat out of the backﬁeld. First-round pick Tyler Eifert also had a big play, making a 61-yard catch that set up Bernard’s touchdown run.

Larry Koretz takes best shot at rocking charity weekend
Former area basketball star teaming up with his son to knock down 5,400 shots
During his illustrious basketball career, Larry Koretz doesn’t know if he even made 5,400 jump shots combined. This weekend, he’ll be aiming to do that in one day. Fred Adams | For The Times Leader The former GAR High School Jake Koretz, 10, and his father Larry Koretz the former LaSalle and GAR basketball standout, practice for the Rockathon at the Rock and La Salle University basketball Church Recreation Center in Trucksville for an attemp to shoot star will team up with his 10-yearold son Jake Koretz this Saturday 5400 baskets.
starting at 10 a.m. in an attempt to swish 5400 jumpers as part of the Rock Rec Center’s Rockathon - a three-day weekend for charity beneﬁting a POW/MIA Memorial and the construction of the center’s planned athletic ﬁeld. “It’ll be challenging,” Koretz admitted. “Fifty-four hundred jump shots we have to make that day! But it’s for two good causes at the Rock.” Two pretty good shooters are
looking forward to giving an assist. Larry Koretz, a 6-foot-8 forward with a deadly outside shot, was the ﬁrst 2,000-point scorer at GAR High School before becoming a four-year starter and 1,000 point scorer for a La Salle team that he helped advance to the NIT ﬁnals under coach Speedy Morris in 1987. After graduating from La Salle, Koretz spent a few seasons playing professionally in Europe. His son is a budding basketball player in the Dallas school system - “I don’t push it on him,” Larry said - and a developing multi-sport athlete who just came off an out-ofstate baseball tournament this past
weekend. The two have already raised pledges toward the Rock’s two charities - “A penny a make, a nickle a make. Our money will go towards the ﬁeld,” Koretz said - and both have been practicing their shooting from the 16-foot range. “We’ll just try to shoot a good percentage. If we shoot a good percentage, it’ll be less time,” Larry Koretz said. “For my son, mentally it’s really good for him. The focus of a 10-year-old is not to be in the gym for eight hours. “But he’s into it.” See KORETz | 4B

PITTSBURGH — Andrew Cashner carried a perfect game into the seventh inning and faced the minimum 27 batters in a one-hitter that sent the San Diego Padres past the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-0 on Monday night. Cashner (10-8) retired his ﬁrst 18 batters before Jose Tabata grounded a clean single into right ﬁeld leading off the seventh. Tabata was erased when Andrew McCutchen grounded into an inning-ending double play, and the right-hander cruised the rest of the way for his ﬁrst complete game in 31 career starts. Cashner struck out seven, did not walk a batter and threw 97 pitches. He also scored from second on a single, sliding home with the second run of the game, moments before giving up Tabata’s hit. The Pirates lost for the second time in eight games after entering the day tied for ﬁrst place in the NL Central with the St. Louis Cardinals, who played later at Colorado. Kyle Blanks, Ronny Cedeno and Rene Rivera each had two hits as the Padres won for the ninth time in 13 games. They are 17-3 in their last 20 at PNC Park. A.J. Burnett (8-11) took a shutout into the seventh but wound up with the loss. He allowed two runs and six hits in 6 2-3 innings, with three walks and eight strikeouts. The Pirates had won each of Burnett’s previous ﬁve home starts. San Diego broke through for two runs against Burnett in the seventh. Cedeno and Rivera opened the inning with singles, and Cashner bunted into a ﬁelder’s choice that left runners at the corners. Will Venable hit a sacriﬁce ﬂy, and Cashner scored on Jedd Gyorko’s single to left. The Padres left runners in scoring position in the fourth, ﬁfth, sixth and eighth. Reds 6, Astros 1 HOUSTON — Johnny Cueto threw ﬁve scoreless innings in his return from the disabled list and Zack Cozart homered and drove in four runs to help the Cincinnati Reds to a win over the Houston Astros. Phillies 12, Marlins 2 PHILADELPHIA — Cliff Lee had three hits, knocked in a career-high four runs and struck out a season-high 14 to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a win over the Miami
Marlins. Lee (14-6) stroked a tworun, bases-loaded single to cap off a six-run third inning and also hit his ﬁrst career triple in the ﬁfth. Chase Utley, who also drove in four runs, hit a long three-run homer in the third. On the mound, Lee allowed two runs while scattering eight hits and walking none, at one point retiring 11 straight en route to winning his fourth consecutive decision. The lefthander’s 14 strikeouts marked his fourth double-digit strikeout game this year. Lee is 4-0 with a 2.05 ERA in his last six starts and 5-1 with a 2.29 lifetime ERA against Miami. He’s also a career .391 hitter against the Marlins. Philadelphia has won six in a row over Miami. In his ﬁrst major-league start, Sam Dyson (0-1) allowed seven runs on six hits and three walks while striking out only one. He struggled to ﬁnd control, with just 34 of 63 pitches going for strikes. Utley got the Phillies started with an RBI groundout in the ﬁrst. His 17th homer in the third gave them a four-run lead. Later in the frame, Cody Asche drove in a run with a single to right ﬁeld. Giancarlo Stanton’s throw home was on the mark, but Marlins catcher Jeff Mathis couldn’t handle it before being barreled over by Domonic Brown. Rays 6, Rangers 2 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Rookie Wil Myers homered and had three RBIs, Alex Cobb pitched eight solid innings, and the Tampa Bay Rays took the lead for the ﬁrst AL wild-card spot by beating the Texas Rangers. Tampa Bay and Texas started play one-half game ahead of Cleveland, which was at Kansas City, in race for the two wild-card spots. Tigers 4, Mariners 2 DETROIT — Rick Porcello struck out 10 in six innings and the Detroit Tigers beat the Seattle Mariners to move a step closer to their third straight AL Central title. Victor Martinez broke a 1-all tie in the sixth with a run-scoring single, and Omar Infante followed with his own RBI single. Porcello (13-8) allowed a run and ﬁve hits with two walks, falling one strikeout short of his career high. Drew Smyly got ﬁve outs in relief and Jose Veras ﬁnished the eighth.

From page 1B tragedy,” Commissioner Bud Selig said. “Major League Baseball’s security department will continue to track this matter in consultation with the Nationals and under the guidance of the local authorities.” The postponement was announced shortly after 3 p.m., about four hours before scheduled start. “We have to be in contact with the federal authorities, the state and D.C. authorities to have a coordinated effort, and then whenever you cancel a game, MLB is involved and we have to go through the correct procedures for that,” Rizzo said. With some streets north of the stadium closed, there was heavy trafﬁc on South Capitol Street, parallel to the thirdbase. Potomac Street, parallel to ﬁrst-base line, was blocked by police. Police activity was visible around the stadium, and sirens could be heard throughout the afternoon. Players from both teams were in the clubhouses at the time of the postponement along with stadium employees. The doubleheader will open a three-game series. The Braves have a 10-game lead over second-place Washington in the NL East, and the Nationals began Monday 4½ games behind Cincinnati for the ﬁnal NL wild-card berth. Washington starter Dan Haren and Atlanta’s Mike Minor were pushed back to this afternoon, and the Nationals’ Tanner Roark opposes Freddy Garcia in the night game.

BOSTON — If Mariano Rivera is going to get back to Fenway Park, the Yankees will have to be one of the AL’s wild card teams. The Yankees were eliminated from the AL East race after losing to the Red Sox Sunday night. During a pregame ceremony, the Red Sox honored Rivera and then he spent the rest of the night watching his team fall to Boston for the sixth time in seven games over the last 11 days. “A great ceremony. Great,” Rivera said. “Well done. Humbling. At the same time, I deﬁnitely appreciate what the Red Sox organization did. I will never forget it.” When the game turned into a rout, Rivera even took time to sign autographs for fans near the Yankees’ bullpen — at one time, signing the back of a young boy’s Rivera No. 42 shirt. And when he walked in from the bullpen after the ﬁnal out, the remaining fans cheered. A quartet of cellos played what was certainly the classiest version of “Enter Sandman” that ever graced a baseball diamond to start the ceremony before the ﬁnal scheduled game at Fenway of his career. The lengthy ceremony opened with the Red Sox needling the likely Hall of Famer for one of his career lowlights: the blown save in Game 4 of the 2004 AL championship series that allowed Boston to come
back from a 3-0 deﬁcit and advance to the World Series. The Red Sox went on to win their ﬁrst Series title in 86 years, and when they received their rings before the home opener against the Yankees the next year, Rivera was given a standing ovation. Highlights of the appearance — one of just ﬁve postseason blown saves in his 19-year career — were played on the scoreboard, with commentary from former Red Sox players Dave Roberts, Kevin Millar and Bill Mueller. Then the scoreboard ﬂashed, “But seriously …” and the accolades followed. “Yeah, I felt it. I feel it the whole series, the fans,” he said when asked if he felt respect the trio from 2004 had for him. “It was respect. Even the last hour in the bullpen, the fans standing up and clapping. It was great.” Later, he even signed the bullpen wall. “I can’t tell you (what I wrote),” he said, smiling. “I was giving things. Thank you!” The entire Red Sox team waited for Rivera in the inﬁeld, and Boston slugger David Ortiz greeted him with a big hug. In keeping with the tradition of Rivera’s farewell tour, the Red Sox gave him a teamsigned No. 42 that hung on the Green Monster’s manual scoreboard whenever he came in to pitch. He was also given the pitching rubber from the visitor’s bullpen and a painting of him tipping his
hat to the crowd during the 2005 ring ceremony. “It’s a blessing to me to play here for so many years,” Rivera told reporters outside the Yankees’ dugout before the game. “To come here to play against the Red Sox at Fenway, it’s always a great game. But it’s never easy.” Including playoffs, Rivera was 15-7 with 64 saves and a 2.59 ERA in 127 games against Boston in his 19-year career, starting with two innings of scoreless relief on Sept. 10, 1995. For him to face the Red Sox again — either at Yankee Stadium or at Fenway — both teams would have to make the playoffs. “Hopefully it’s not the last time,” Rivera said before the game, when the Yankees were 11½ games behind ﬁrst-place Boston in the AL East and 2½ games out in the wild-card race. “We’re ﬁghting for something. We want to get to the playoffs. I don’t have any thinking about myself.” The 43-year-old Rivera has said he will retire after this season, his 19th in the major leagues, all of them with the Yankees. He has 651 career saves — tops in baseball history — with a 2.22 ERA and even the rival Red Sox called him the greatest closer in baseball history. “What he’s done is remarkable,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said before the game. “He’s a role model and I mean that in the greatest sense I can say it. Everyone should look up to his life.”
Out of the game, into the Hall for Helton?
By PAT GRAHAM
AP Sports Writer
DENVER — Todd Helton has more homers than Hank Greenberg, more RBIs than Johnny Mize, a higher career batting average than Eddie Murray and has scored more runs than Willie McCovey. All those ﬁrst basemen are in the Hall of Fame. Helton will ﬁnd out in ﬁve years if he’s done enough over his 17-year career with the Colorado Rockies to merit consideration. The 40-year-old Helton, who announced his retirement over the weekend, holds virtually every offensive record for the Rockies, the only club he’s ever known. But he remains on the bubble for the Hall of Fame, mainly because he spent his career playing half his games in the friendly conﬁnes of Coors Field. Asked about his enshrinement possibility at his ofﬁcial retirement ceremony before the game Monday against the St. Louis Cardinals, Helton quickly tabled such talk. “Obviously, it’s an honor to be mentioned in that conversation,” Helton said. “But that’s for a later date.” His numbers, though, do some pretty loud speaking. He’s a .317 hitter in his career with 367 home runs, 1,397 RBIs and 1,394 runs. He was an All-Star from 2000 to 2004 and captured three Gold Glove awards. “He’s a Hall of Famer, no matter what peo-
ple say,” Rockies outﬁelder Carlos Gonzalez said. “He put up great numbers and he didn’t play all his games in Coors Field. That (argument) frustrates me, because we don’t have control over that. “He deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. He’s a great player and that’s where the great players go.” The days of grabbing his glove and sauntering out to ﬁrst base are quickly dwindling for Helton. After Monday, just 11 more contests remain in Helton’s illustrious career. The normally stoic Helton allowed his emotions to surface as he addressed a crowded room, a rare peek into his personality. His wife and two kids were by his side at the table. Troy Tulowitzki and a few other Colorado players were listening in the audience. Even former Rockies slugger Matt Holliday, who’s now a member of the Cardinals, showed up and took a seat next to Tulowitzki. “I’m going to miss walking out of the tunnel at night … trying to ﬁgure out how I’m going to get a hit the next day or how we’re going to win a game the next day,” Helton said, pausing for a moment to gather his emotions. “To me, that’s going to be the hardest (part). “My relationship with the game is going to come to an end. The relationships I made in the game will carry on. To me, that is what is important.”

Ligotski showing improvement for USP cross country
Orange, who are ranked sixth in the nation. “Serra has done an outstanding job,” coach Ange Bradley said.“She came in as one of our top freshmen and now she’s starting and playing almost 70 minutes a game.” The coach was impressed with Degnan’s play in a 4-0 victory over Michigan State. “Serra had a key defensive responsibility and, while she didn’t get the statistics to show it, she was a very integral part for us to get a shutout,” Bradley said. The coach calls Degnan“a great player and a great athlete”and likes the fact that she played basketball and softball beside field hockey as a youngster. “That makes Serra an all-around athlete, not just a manufactured hockey player,” Bradley said. Syracuse opens Atlantic Coast Conference play at Boston College Friday. PANTHERS NEED WIGNOT – The Pittsburgh women’s volleyball team is 7-3 despite the fact that junior standout Monica Wignot has played in just one match and four sets for the Panthers thus far this season because of an injury. As a sophomore,Wignot (Holy Redeemer) was named to the Big East Conference second team and entered this season with 606 kills, 290 digs, 113 blocks and 72 service aces for her career. “Monica was our top outside hitter after the spring season and we have big expectations for her this season,” coach Dan Fisher said.“She is a steady player in the back row and can really be a force at the net with both her blocking and attacking.” The coach feels that Wignot“has to be smart” about her rehab so she can return to the lineup at 100 percent. “That’s short term,” Fisher said.“In the long term we expect her to challenge for a starting spot as an outside or right side hitter.” CANNON DOING THE JOB – Senior Erik Cannon (Dallas) is a key performer on defense for the Lafayette men’s soccer team. He’s started all six games for the Leopards, who have given up just four goals but have just one victory with five ties this season. “Erik has developed into one of the top outside backs in the Patriot League,” coach Dennis Bohn said.“He is one of our most consistent players. He’s a strong defender who is also heavily involved in our attack.” Cannon also does the job in the class room.A biology major, he’s been named to the Patriot All-Academic team his first three seasons. “Erik is a tremendous student-athlete and an even better person,” Bohn said.“I am very proud of his patience and his progress throughout his career.” SOWINSKI LEADS THE WAY – The Holy Cross women’s cross country team lists eight freshmen on the roster and coach Jim Kavanagh has called on Rachel Sowinski (Holy Redeemer) to be a leader in the group. She’s doing it on the course, finishing 16th in her first college race (18:28 for 5k) in a meet against New Hampshire and Providence and then she finished 13th out of 100 runners at the Nassaney Invitational in Smithfield, R.I., with a time of 18:47.7. “Rachel has been all we hoped for when we recruited her and so much more,” Kavanagh said.“She loves to run and her enthusiasm is contagious. She’s made the transition to college running remarkably well.” Kavanagh said that he’s talked to Sowinski about the team a number of times. “Rachel knows we expect her to be a leader among the first year runners and she’s done a great job the first two races,” the coach said.“Our latest discussion was to talk about her challenging the veteran women in both workouts and races.” The coach will see how the talks work out when Sowinski and her mates compete in the National Catholic Championships Friday at Notre Dame in South Bend. DAVENPORT FITS RIGHT IN – Freshman Sauni Davenport (Wyoming Valley West) has started all seven games on defense for the 3-4 Hofstra field hockey team. In fact, she’s second on the team in minutes played. “We had an opportunity to watch Sauni at various events for the past several seasons and we saw someone with so much potential,” coach Kathy DeAngelis said. “She came in well-prepared for preseason camp. She has great fitness and is one of the fastest players on our team.” The coach feels that Davenport has done a lot of great things for the team in just seven games but feels that even better things are yet to come. “I think Sauni will continue to get better,” DeAngelis said.“The sky is the limit for her and we are very excited to see how she will develop in the future.” BROWN, LEE DOING THE JOB – Juniors Lindsay Brown and Courtney Lee have been solid performers in the early going for the Slippery Rock field hockey team – Brown on offense and Lee on defense. Brown (Crestwood) leads the 2-2 team with four goals and three assists for 11 points. She entered the season having played in 37 games with 30 starts with seven goals and two assists her first two seasons. “Lindsay is a captain and continues to be our veteran on the forward line,” coach Julie Swiney said. Lee (Holy Redeemer) is sharing goalkeeping duties and is 2-1, giving up three goals with 14 saves. “Courtney is using her experience to help guide a young defensive team,” Swiney said. Lee entered the season with a 14-17 career record with three shutouts in the goal. GOOD START FOR ANTALL —- Freshman Paige Antall (Hanover Area) kicked off her college career with the Chestnut Hill women’s cross country team. She finished 44th out of 117 runners with a 5k time of 22:30.95 at the Division II-III portion of the Fordham Fiasco at Van Cortlandt Park. “Paige ran well in her first college meet, but we think she can run much faster as the season progresses,” coach Phil Reilly said.“Paige has handled the college training well. For women, the jump from high school isn’t as dramatic as with the men, but I think Paige will be fine when she is in a 6k race. She’s very passionate about the sport and is an extremely hard worker.” Antall and her mates will compete in the Philadelphia Metro Championships this weekend.

Brianna Ligotski was a strong performer with the University of Sciences in Philadelphia women’s cross country team last season as a freshman, but it appears that the sophomore has stepped up her efforts this season. Ligotski (Holy Redeemer), the Devils’top finisher in all seven meets last season, kicked off this season by competing in the Delaware Invitational and finished fifth among non-Division I runners and 39th out of 205 runners overall. Her 6k time was 24:25.45. She followed that up by finishing second in the Wilmington, Del., Invitational with a 5k time of 20:22.76.That was the top time ever by a Devil runner in the event. “Brianna worked hard over the summer and her hard work shined with her effort at Delaware,” coach Bob Heller said.“She lowered her time from last year by over a minute.” Heller likes the way Ligotski pushes herself and her teammates to work hard to improve. “Bri is one of the top runners in our conference and will contend for the individual conference title,” Heller said.“I expect a lot of good things from her as the season progresses.” Ligotski will be competing in the Metro Championship Saturday in Philadelphia. DEGNAN STARTS FOR ORANGE – Freshman Serra Degnan (Wyoming Area) played a solid game coming off the bench in her first game with the Syracuse field hockey team. but the 5-foot-2 forward has started the last five games for the 6-0
Miller’s dedication part of big weekend at Rock Recreation
For The Times Leader
The Rock Recreation Center in Trucksville will raise money for two memorial causes with its Rockathon, scheduled for Sept. 20-22. The Rock is working on plans for both a POW/MIA Memorial at the base of its driveway and an artiﬁcial turf outdoor sports playing ﬁeld in the name of Matthew Benjamin Rondina, a Kingston Township Raiders youth football player who died at age 13 in 1998 from brain cancer. A personal athletic challenge from one of Rondina’s friends,
a 5K trail run and a 3-on-3 basketball tournament, is part of the weekend along with other community activities. Elijah Miller, development director at Rock Recreation, will attempt to run 54 miles Friday. Rondina wore number 54 as a junior football player and many of the weekend’s events have a connection to that number. There will also be a Watch Fire ceremonial burning from Friday night, Sept. 20 into the following morning in memory of Prisoners of War and Missing in Action soldiers. The 5K trail run and 3-on3 basketball tournaments are
scheduled for Sept. 21 when live music and food and craft vendors are also planned to create a carnival atmosphere at Rock Recreation. Related basketball activities, including a two-hour camp that is included with registration in the tournament, continue Sept 22. Miller, 27, is a Dallas and Penn State graduate currently pursuing his MBA at The University of Scranton. During his days as a high school football player with the Mountaineers, he always played with the number 54 written on his arm to remember his friend and former
junior football teammate. His latest effort to honor Rondina’s memory is the “strong run” in which he plans to cover a mile at a time and complete each mile with 10 pull-ups. “Basically, my goal is within a 12-hour period to run 54 miles and do 540 pull-ups,” Miller said. Miller has run up to 25 miles in training efforts. “Usually, when you train for something like this, you do 50 to 75 percent of the goal in training,” Miller said. “Then, you try to let heart and adrenaline take care of the rest.” Miller is trying to call attention to fundraising efforts
for the Matthew Benjamin Rondina Memorial Sports Field. He said the total project, including site preparation and bleachers next to the ﬁeld, will cost close to $1 million and the non-proﬁt organization has progressed about $175,000 toward that goal. The POW/MIA activities are part of being patriotic and putting country above community, according to Miller. Former Korean War POW Fred Searles and Debra Kay Anderson, the daughter of an MIA U.S. Air Force pilot, will be the guest speakers at a Watch Fire Service. The Watch Fire will be built at dusk and

From page 1B It doesn’t stop there. The Koretzs will be shooting at the same time as a 3-on-3 basketball tournament being run by Larry Koretz for boys and girls in the fourth grade and up. The cost for the tourney is $54 per player, but teams can enter at half that price - $27 - until Friday’s festivities. The 3v3 basketball tourney will includes prizes for the winners of a 3-point shooting contest and a free throw contest and willalsofeatureinflatableactivities. And Sunday, following and 11 a.m. memorial service at Back Mountain Harvest Assembly church, Larry Koretz will conduct a Father &
Son camp from noon to 2 p.m. at the Rock Rec Center. “I’ve volunteered at camps, but not really a three-day event, not like an event like this,” Koretz said. “I’m going to do a lot of different drills you can do with your son in the driveway, and I want to do different things - a little question and answer session. “My son, his dedication has inspired me.” The inspiration for all this was a conversation Koretz had with his workout friend Elijah Miller, a Dallas High School assistant football coach. Miller wanted to keep the memory of his late boyhood friend Matthew Rodina - who died of cancer at the age of 13 - alive while trying to honor the No. 54 Rodina wore when they both played for the Kingston Twp. Raiders. Hence, the 5400
jump shots and the $54 entry fee to go along with the 54-mile run Miller will be conducting as part of the weekend. The sports field at the Rock Rec will become the home field for the Kingston Twp. Raiders - who currently don’t have one - and have the number 54 emblazoned in the middle. It will be named in the memory of Matthew Benjamin Rondina. “That was his best friend,” Koretz said of Miller. “They played together with the Kingston Twp. Raiders. The kid (Rondina) just wanted to play football, play catch, when he had cancer. And he couldn’t. At first, the Raiders wore a patch with his number. Then they had an award named after him. Then he just kind of got forgotten about.” Koretz hopes the fundraiser,

Hanover Area running back Isaiah Taylor carried the offense with 195 rushing yards on 24 carries and a 24-yard touchdown run in a loss to Lakeland.And from the air,Tunkhannock receiver Brett Stage attacked with five catches for 124 yards, including touchdowns of 35 and 59 yards, in a victory over Montrose. … Lake-Lehman standout Dominic Hockenbury ground out a time of 16:35 in boys cross country. Tunkhannock’s showed why it was the state’s preseason top-ranked team when Jack Tidball finished with a 17:19, while his teammates Jake Toczko, Carson Ayers and Ben Siegel all cracked the 18-minute mark.And Andrew Plyers of Hazleton Area finished with a time of 17:34 in a tri-meet. …Three field hockey players hit the trifecta, with each scoring three goals in a game.Wyoming Valley West’s Danielle Grega accomplished all the scoring for the Spartans in a 3-2 victory over Dallas. Meanwhile,Wyoming Seminary’s Mallory Lewkowicz went for three goals in a 7-0 win over Abington Heights and Crestwood’s Elizabeth Dessoye scored three of the team’s five goals in a shutout of Wyoming Area. … Kyle Gregaris of Crestwood did them one better on the boys soccer field, scoring four goals in a victory over Meyers.Tunkhannock’s Aiden Cronin and Berwick’s Joshua Maron both had a three-goal game during the week.And while Holy Redeemer’s Ian McGrane didn’t score any goals, he didn’t allow any, either.The keeper made 14 saves in a 1-0 shutout of Wyoming Area. … Holy Redeemer’s Lydia Lawson had five goals and an assist against Wyoming Area, while her

I hope this jump-starts the Rock in the right direction, doing more things with the community.” So that means a lot more jump shots from the Koretz team next year? “Do I want to shoot 5400 jump shots next year and make ‘em? I’m not sure,” Koretz laughed. “Physically, I would love to do it. Mentally, it takes a lot.”
From page 1B 49ers, this time a 29-3 rout on Sunday night. It was an addendum to the 42-13 blowout the Seahawks served on San Francisco last December, but this victory means more. Seattle now has the advantage going forward in a division race no one expects to be decided until December. Here are ﬁve things to know about the Seahawks second straight convincing home win over the 49ers: 1. SEATTLE MADE BETTER ADJUSTMENTS: When a weather delay forced the teams into the locker room it came after Seattle had a punt blocked, Wilson
had been intercepted and the Seahawks had a total of 27 yards of offense. The hour delay allowed the Seahawks to make adjustments to get more production out of the run game, which became especially important with Wilson struggling. Defensively, Seattle was stout after the delay. 2. BEAST MODE CAN’T BE STOPPED: Coming out of its opener, Seattle’s lack of a run game was a major concern, especially going up against a San Francisco defense known for being stout at stopping the ground game. But Lynch has ﬁgured out how to run against the 49ers. He came in with three straight 100-yard rushing games against the 49ers and if not for a few negative yard-
School: Pittston Area Grade: Junior Sport: Girls Soccer Position: Forward All in the Family: Allie is the daughter of Steve and Sophie Barber of Pittston Twp. Her dad is a former wrestling coach at Wyoming Valley West, and her older brother Steven was a standout wrestler and football player for Pittston Area. She has an older sister, Mary Beth, who began her high school career playing soccer and ended it on the sidelines as a cheerleader. Stats: Barber scored four goals during Pittston Area’s 14-2 victory over MMI, giving her 100 for her high school career. Reaching her goal: While 10 different players scored in Pittston Area’s runaway victory, Barber produced points when it mattered most. She scored four of the team’s first five goals to get the Patriots off to a strong start - and get her milestone goal out of the way.That was the plan, said Barber, who was aware she was only four away from her career 100th goal coming in. Coach’s corner: “She’s an excellent forward,” Pittston Area coach Nicole Tieso said.“She’s also a leader on the field. She’s not selfish, she distributes the ball very well. She has speed and she’s a great ballhandler. She’s just an all-around good player. She knew she only had four to go (for her 100th goal).To me, it was even more of a milestone for her to hit it in her junior year.” Did you know? When she’s not scooting around the soccer field, Barber can be found on a fastbreak for Pittston Area’s girls basketball team or running full-speed for the Patriots’track and
field squad. No wonder she spends part of her off time working the fast food drive-through at McDonald’s. From her angle: “You don’t really think of scoring 100 goals. It was an awesome feeling,” Barber said.“My team made it more special - they all hugged me and made it a big thing. I wanted to just get it over with and just do it. It was a nice feeling.” Although she may have rather her 100th goal would be the game-winner in a one-point win, Barber said the lopsided victory didn’t dampen the moment a bit.“If you think of all the goals I scored,” Barber said,“I had to get goals against better competition to get in that position in the first place.” Week in review: It was a big week for Holy Redeemer’s golf team, which kept getting par or under performances through three victories. Mariano Medico led the way with par-36 matches against Wyoming Seminary and Nanticoke Area, and shot 1-under 35 against MMI. Medico shared medalist honors with teammate Ryan Crossin, who also scored 36 against Nanticoke Area. Chase Makowski went 2-under 34 against MMI and hit par 36 against Sem.And Alex Rowan and Mike Bowland both finished at par 36 against MMI and Sem, respectively. … Crestwood running back Frank Aigeldinger led a big weekend for high school football’s ground attack, rushing for 323 yards on 21 carries and scoring on touchdown runs of 9, 3, 61 and 65 yards in a victory over Pittston Area. Northwest’s Austin Mazonkey was nearly as impressive, rushing for 200 yards on 11 carries and scoring on 64- and 45-yard touchdown runs
girls soccer teammate Emily Schramm had two goals and three assists in the same game. Lake-Lehman’s Shoshana Mahoney had three goals against Nanticoke Area and Coughlin’s Nora Fazzi made four assists against Hazleton Area. … Dallas’ Olivia Musto led the team to its first girls volleyball win of the season with seven kills and seven digs.Tunkhannock’s Erin Smith scored 20 points and had 18 assists and 12 aces in a victory over Wyoming Valley West, then she came back with 21 assists and eight points in a win over Wyoming Area. Lake-Lehman’s Diana Sutliff made 20 kills and had eight blocks against Nanticoke Area. Holy Redeemer star Nicole Slavoski made 18 kills against Delaware Valley and served 17 points with seven kills against Lehman. Redeemer’s Lexie Evans had 28 assists in that Delaware Valley match. Hanover Area’s Shalianna Rios made 26 digs and five aces against GAR, while Crestwood’s Nicole Jankowski had 10 aces among her 21 service points while her teammate Emily Sipple served nine aces in a match against GAR.Wyoming Area didn’t come away with victory, but Aubrey Hiedacavage kept the Warriors competitive. She had 25 assists in a loss to Nanticoke Area and added 20 more, along with five digs, in a defeat to Tunkhannock. … Coughlin’s Dana Schneider was a two-time winner on the tennis court at No. 1 singles, posting a 6-0, 6-2 victory against Berwick and a 6-2, 6-2 sweep against Wyoming Area. Crestwood’s Kristi Bowman had a pair of singles sweeps, including a 6-1, 6-0 victory against Tunkhannock. And MMI’s Stephanie Pudish lost just one game

WRIGHT TWP. — Just like that, with a stroke of genius and a little bit of bad luck, Pittston Area’s two-goal lead quickly became erased. Two Crestwood goals in a matter of 37 seconds created a whirlwind of problems for the Patriots going into halftime. Fortunately for the Patriots, it still had more offense left in its tank in a chilly Monday night game in Wright Township. Pittston Area scored two goals and held off another late rally to post a 4-3 victory over the Comets. “They were resilient,” Pittston Area coach Nicole Tieso said. “It was exciting. I couldn’t be happier with them as a team.” Pittston Area’s Madison Mimnaugh scored the go-ahead goal in the 48th minute when she handled an Allie Barber corner kick and blasted it into the net. The Patriots received a cushion to its lead in the 68th minute when the speedy Barber caught wave of a long pass from 65 yards out. Barber skirted around Comet defenders and goalkeeper Meg White to supply Pittston Area with a 4-2 lead. “I told them (at halftime) that they had to tighten it up on defense,” Tieso said. “We didn’t give them the outside shot because they have some excellent outside shooters. Fortunately, we were able to connect offensively and hold it out.” Crestwood threatened late, Gabby Termini made the best of a long feed from Lexi Gaetano in the 71st to put the Comets back to within a goal at 4-3. “They didn’t give up, and that’s what I’ve always appreciated,” Crestwood coach Russell Kile said. “We had a couple of bad breaks. It’s always nice to
play Pittston Area. They always bring a nice team to the table.” White made a series of saves in the closing minutes, including diving stops in the 73rd and 77th minutes, to keep Crestwood in contention. She ﬁnished the game with 12 saves. After Pittston Area owned a two-goal lead for the majority of the ﬁrst half, the Termini sisters added extra ﬂair to even the score. Gabby Termini kicked a grounder that bounced right through the hands of the Pittston Area goalkeeper to give the Comets their ﬁrst life. Moments later, Olivia Termini arced a ball from 35 yards beyond the keeper’s vertical leap to go into the break at 2-2. “It was great,” Kile said. “We always tell them, the best time to score a goal is right after another goal. So we tell them to work hard for a minute, work hard for two minutes.” Gabby Termini ﬁnished with two goals, while her sister Olivia added three points off a goal and an assist.Sara Ruby scored the Patriots’ ﬁrst two goals. Barber tallied a goal and two assists. Mindina Lieback made nine saves for the victory.

Zach Johnson rallies to win BMW Championship
AP Golf Writer
LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Zach Johnson is having a September to remember, and there’s still one very big week to go. In one tournament, he made a 25-foot birdie putt on his ﬁnal hole to earn the last spot on the Presidents Cup team. In the next one, Johnson made a bunch of big putts in the ﬁnal round of the rain-delayed BMW Championship for a 6-under 65 for a two-shot victory over Nick Watney. Next up? His win Monday at Conway Farms gave Johnson the No. 4 seed going into Tour Championship, giving him a clear shot at the FedEx Cup and its $10 million prize. “It’s hard to grasp the last two weeks of golf,” Johnson said. “It’s not like you have to win every week to win that FedEx Cup. You’ve just got to win at the right times, or play well at the right times. And I like the momentum I have for next week.” Johnson’s 10th career win came at the expense of Jim Furyk, who
endured another dose of ﬁnal-round disappointment. Furyk, who had a one-shot lead, has failed to win the last six times he had at least a share of the lead going into the last round. He holed a 12-foot birdie putt at No. 10 to build a two-shot lead, but played the last eight holes in 2-over and wound up with a 71 to ﬁnish alone in third. Furyk had to settle for slice of history Friday as the sixth player in PGA Tour history with a 59. Only three players in that exclusive club went on to win — Al Geiberger is the only player to win when the 59 was not in the ﬁnal round. “I don’t know if I used them all up on Friday and knocked them all in or what, but I just wasn’t able to get the putts to go,” Furyk said. Johnson wasn’t the only player who felt like a winner Monday. Luke Donald, a member at Conway Farms, was No. 54 in the FedEx Cup and was on the verge of being left out of the top 30 players who advanced to the Tour Championship. He ran off four straight
birdies on the back nine, atoned for a bogey on No. 16 with a birdie on the 17th, and then saved par from a bunker on the 18th hole for a 66 to tie for fourth. That moved him up to No. 29 to get him into East Lake. Watney was at No. 34, and he went from playing his way into the top 30 to nearly winning the tournament. Watney closed with a 64 and was tied for the lead until Johnson made an 18-foot birdie putt out of the ﬁrst cut on the 16th hole, and a 12-footer for birdie on the next hole. “The guys ahead of me were ahead of me for a reason — they’ve been playing well all year,” Watney said. “Luckily for me, I kind of pulled everything together.” The FedEx Cup points will be reset, meaning the top ﬁve only have to win the Tour Championship to capture the cup. Tiger Woods will be the No. 1 seed, though he doesn’t go there with much momentum. Woods started the ﬁnal round in cool, breezy conditions just four shots behind and was never a factor
after missing a short par putt on the opening hole. He closed with a 71 and tied for 11th, seven shots behind. “It was not a very good putting week,” Woods said, who was coming off a tie for 65th on the TPC Boston. “It’s just one of those weeks where I just didn’t have it.” Henrik Stenson, a winner in Boston and angry enough in Chicago that he snapped off the head of his driver during the ﬁnal round, will be the No. 2 seed at East Lake, followed by Masters champion Adam Scott, Johnson and Matt Kuchar. Steve Stricker, who played in the ﬁnal group with Johnson, was one shot off the lead when he started the back nine bogey-double bogey. He closed with a 72, a round that cost him one of the top ﬁve seeds. Furyk had company in his misery. Matt Jones of Australia had a chance to get to the Tour Championship — which, in effect, would have put him in the four majors next year — but his 8-foot birdie putt on the last hole hit the lip.
Zach Johnson flicks a bug away from his putting line on the 13 hole during the final round of the BMW Championship at Conway Farms Golf Club, Monday in Lake Forest, Ill.
That cost him a spot in the top 30. Harris English was at No. 28 and might have caught the worst break of them all. In a driving rain Sunday, he lost the grip on his tee shot and pulled it into grass so thick the ball was never found. The horn to stop play sounded a minute later, and English
went back out Monday morning to No. 8 to play his third shot on the par 5. He wound up with a double bogey, never found momentum and fell out of the top 30 by two shots. Lee Westwood also fell out of the Tour Championship with a poor week. Johnson put his postseason in jeopardy by
skipping the opening FedEx Cup playoff event to attend his brother’s wedding. He was at No. 27 before he arrived for the BMW Championship and started the week just wanting to make sure he was in Atlanta. He did that and more, giving him 10 wins in his 10 years on the PGA Tour.
Nasty weather plaguing NFL Montoya leaving NASCAR
AP Pro Football Writer
Nasty weather often plagues the NFL. Everyone knows about the Lambeau tundra or the whipping winter winds off Lake Erie in Cleveland. But for Mother Nature to wreak havoc with games in September? That doesn’t bode well for the rest of the season. Already, three games, including two in prime time, have been disrupted by weather issues, mostly lightning. Kickoff for the Ravens-Broncos opener to the season on Sept. 5 in Denver was delayed for 33 minutes. On Sunday, New Orleans’ visit to Tampa Bay was interrupted for 69 minutes. And the showcase matchup of San Francisco at Seattle went through a one-hour delay in the ﬁrst quarter Sunday night. Hardly ideal — for the teams, the fans, or the folks watching on TV. But necessary. “We knew ahead of time we would have weather sometime during the game, early in the game,” said Mike Kensil, the league’s vice president of game operations who was in Seattle on Sunday. “We have a security meeting at 100 minutes (before kickoff), at 90 minutes a meeting with the TV teams, and we go through the scenarios in case there is weather. “We go through our meteorological services and the services the stadium uses. Safety is paramount.” Lightning is the biggest worry because it’s so unpredictable and dangerous, Kensil said. The NFL and stadium authorities track any storm that includes lightning, and when it gets

nity and a great chance with Penske. We’re going to be competitors and I’m looking forward to the challenge.” Ganassi decided in August not to bring Montoya back next year to his NASCAR program. It put the Colombian on the free agent market, and even though Ganassi has said he’d not ruled out using Montoya in his other programs, Montoya considered everything. He spoke with Michael Andretti about an IndyCar ride, and Furniture Row Racing about replacing Kurt Busch at the end of the NASCAR season. There were calls to Europe, and a new rumor about a possible test with Lotus in Formula One. Then came discussions with Penske and all bets were off with the other teams. Montoya will team next season with current IndyCar points leader Helio Castroneves and Will Power while driving for Penske, winner of 15 Indianapolis 500s. He could also drive in some

within 5 miles, meteorologists try to predict its path toward the stadium. “Last night, it was tracking to come right over the stadium,” Kensil added. “We knew within a mile and a half of the stadium we would have to clear the ﬁeld. As we were clearing the ﬁeld, we had a bolt of lightning somewhere (nearby).” Scoreboard messages, public address system announcements and word of mouth all are used to clear a stadium. Fans generally are sent into the covered corridors or even into lounges until the storm clears the area. It’s an awkward process for the players. Already in the midst of heavy action, they not only have to stop play-
ing for a lengthy break, but then need to ﬁre up their engines again. “I’ve never had a rain delay, ever, in football,” Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins said. “It was kind of one of those things, you don’t want to do too much and wear yourself out. We sat around a little bit and once they gave us that 10-minute warning (to return to the ﬁeld), we started to warm up again and go over some last minute checks and started over. “We did the same pregame ritual that we usually do, we just restarted the whole process.” Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson took a shower during the interruption.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — With a chance to start over and maybe drive in any series he wanted, Juan Pablo Montoya thought long and hard about what mattered most at this stage of his career. The answer was simple: Winning. So when a team owner synonymous with winning put an offer in front of him, Montoya snapped at the opportunity. He’ll leave NASCAR behind for a return to open-wheel to drive for Roger Penske — the IndyCar Series rival of Montoya’s longtime boss, Chip Ganassi. “He’s very excited for me,” Montoya said Monday after texting with Ganassi, who is in Europe. “Something that we have with Chip is that we’re very good friends. We have a lot of respect for each other. He had to make a decision this year to go in a different direction. I had to do the same thing. I had an opportu-
NASCAR races as part of the deal. “My No. 1 choice was going to be in a winning car. I really wanted to be in a winning car,” he said. “It came down to I wanted to race for Roger. In a way it’s always been one of my dreams to be able to be part of his organization. Being here, it’s unbelievable. I’m so excited. I’m like a 5-year-old kid right now.” Some could also consider the move a big piece of gamesmanship in the racing rivalry that spans two series between Ganassi and Penske. Castroneves and Ganassi driver Scott Dixon are currently locked in a ﬁerce battle for the title, and the competition has heated up over the last two races as Dixon has been involved in incidents with Power and the Penske organization. “He’s a great driver and deserves a great drive,” Ganassi told The Associated Press. “He will have that there at Penske Racing.”
Earnhardt, Logano have some real chasing to do
AP Sports Writer
JOLIET, Ill. — If the plan was to spot the competition a lead, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Joey Logano have their rivals right where they want them. Both got off to a miserable start in the opening race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Logano, the polesitter, was forced to drop out of Sunday’s rain-delayed race at Chicagoland Speedway when his engine quit with 91 laps remaining. He finished 37th. Some 50 laps later, Earnhardt wound up following Logano onto pit road with a race-ending problem of his own. He settled for 35th. They were the only two in the 13-driver Chase qualifying field not to finish the first of NASCAR’s 10-race, season-ending playoff series. None of the other drivers finished worse
than 16th. “I am pretty angry,” Logano said. “That was such a fast race car we had.” Logano qualified for the Chase for the first time this year, and was embroiled in the scandal-plagued race at Richmond last weekend. After a wideranging investigation, NASCAR officials punished Michael Waltrip Racing for its role in manipulating the race. Additionally, Logano’s Penske Racing team was placed on probation Friday for its role in bargaining for track position at Richmond to get Logano in the Chase. At least Logano’s problems on this night were limited to the track. He had gone to pit road once before his exit, complaining of cylinder problems with his Ford. “Unfortunately the motor blew up. You have these every once in a while,” said Logano, teammate of defending
series champion Brad Keselowski. “It’s a bummer to have it in the Chase when you are running for a championship. I feel like Chicago was one of those tracks we could win at. Everyone was doing the right thing. … It just wasn’t our day I guess.” Earnhardt felt the same way. He got caught in a slow-speed pile-up on pit road, damaged the nose of his car and struggled to keep the front end together the rest of the race. “We were going to get that patched up and maybe be able to make something out of it,” Earnhardt said. “But something broke there in the motor. It’s tough.” The question going forward becomes whether either man can make up the deficit. Five-time champion Jimmie Johnson finished 39th in the 2006 playoff opener and came back to win the title. But he only dropped
to ninth in what was then a 10-driver qualifying field; Logano and Earnhardt will head to the next Chase occupying the last two spots in the 13-driver field. Earnhardt moves to the next race in New Hampshire ranked 13th, 53 points behind leader Matt Kenseth, who won the opener at Chicagoland. Logano is 12th, 52 points back “Everyone did a good job. That is what we have to hold our heads up about,” Logano said. “It is a tough break for this team. We are strong. We have battled through a lot of adversity this year and we will keep doing it.” Earnhardt was not quite as optimistic. “We have some pretty tough competition in the Chase,” he said. “The average finish is going to be inside the top 10 to win the championAP photo ship. So you can do the Joey Logano (22) listens to his crew before the NASCAR Sprint Cup series auto race at Chicagoland numbers, you can do the Speedway in Joliet, Ill. on Sunday. math.”

NCAAwon’t budge on paying college athletes
AP National Writer
MILWAUKEE — The structure of the NCAA could look very different by this time next year as members try to resolve the growing disparity between big-money schools and smaller institutions. What won’t change, however, is the amateur status of the players who make college
athletics a billion-dollar business. “One thing that sets the fundamental tone is there’s very few members and, virtually no university president, that thinks it’s a good idea to convert student-athletes into paid employees. Literally into professionals,” NCAA President Mark Emmert said Monday at Marquette University. “Then you have something very different
from collegiate athletics. One of the guiding principles (of the NCAA) has been that this is about students who play sports.” Emmert and the NCAA have had a turbulent year, with money the source for most of the discontent. After Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel was investigated for allegedly receiving money for autographs — he was cleared — Time
magazine put him on the cover along with the headline “It’s Time to Pay College Athletes.” Oklahoma State is investigating whether rules were broken after a series of Sports Illustrated stories that alleged cash payments to players and academic misconduct. The NCAA is also facing an antitrust lawsuit from former players who believe they’re owed millions of dol-
lars in compensation. “(There’s) enormous tension right now that’s growing between the collegiate model and the commercial model,” said Emmert, who spoke as part of Marquette’s “On the Issues” forum. “And, by the way, this is nothing new. This tension has been going on forever and ever. It has gotten greater now because the magnitude of dollars has gotten really, really large.
“The most valuable (television) products are things you have to watch in real time, and that’s sports and ‘Dancing with the Stars,’” he added. “So we’re seeing an explosion in the value of sports media properties and that’s injected a lot of revenue into sports. … That’s led to a lot of the discussion. This whole notion of, ﬁrst and foremost, treating student-athletes in fair fash-
ion while still maintaining the student-athlete, is at the core of all of this.” One way to address that would be by allowing athletes to turn pro straight out of high school, Emmert said, something the NBA and NFL don’t allow. Other professions don’t impose an “artiﬁcial juncture,” he said, noting that ballet dancers don’t have to take a detour to college before joining a troupe.
Clowney dealing with fame, pain
AP Sports Writer
COLUMBIA, S.C. — Jadeveon Clowney’s happy to get a rest with No. 12 South Carolina starting a week off — both for his aching right foot and from the spotlight that follows him around. The Gamecocks All-American defensive end wears a walking boot to protect a recurrence of bone spurs in his foot, an injury he’s dealt with since high school. Clowney’s had all aspects of his game analyzed this season and has been criticized for his conditioning even though opponents have been running away from whatever side the 6-foot-6, 274-pound lineman lines up on.

Saban, ‘Bama harping on improvement
eye-popping stats this season after his helmet-ﬂying hit on Michigan’s Vincent Smith last New Year’s Day became the talk of college football. In week one, TV cameras caught Clowney breathing heavy as North Carolina’s high-speed offense played away from him. Clowney, who said he was dealing a stomach virus, had three-tackles and no sacks in South Carolina’s 27-10 victory. Clowney was kept in check a week later at Georgia in a 41-30 loss to the Bulldogs, although he did get his ﬁrst sack of the season. The lasting image of that contest was Clowney breaking through the line and Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray heaving a long pass down ﬁeld that Justin Scott-Wesley caught for an 85-yard touchdown. “Very frustrating,” Clowney said after the game. “I told the coaches you got to put me somewhere else, in the middle if you want to, somewhere I can make some plays, help my team get in position to win.” Things came together for the Gamecock defense last Saturday night
Vanderbilt running back Wesley Tate (24) crosses the goal line for a touchdown in front of South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, right, during the second half of Saturday’s game in Columbia, S.C.
as it held Vanderbilt to under 300 yards in a 35-25 victory. The defense collected ﬁve sacks, including a critical one by Clowney in the second half that jarred the ball loose for a fumble that South Carolina recovered deep in its territory to stop a Commodores rally.

Got hay fever? Don’t blame goldenrod
provides a blaze of brilliant yellow at a time when most plants are fading. It attracts pollinators and other beneficial insects, making it good for our gardens as well as our planet. And like other native plants, it can do just fine without our help, thank you very much. Think it’s the goldenrod making you sneeze? It’s a common mistake, said Dr. Bela Faltay, chief of allergy and immunology at Akron General Medical Center in Ohio. Goldenrod and ragweed are close cousins, so people who are allergic to one are typically allergic to the other, he said. But the properties of their pollen grains put them on opposite ends of the hay-fever misery scale. Ragweed is windpollinated, which means it has pollen grains that are tiny enough to be blown by the wind from one plant to another — and unfortunately, to people’s noses. Faltay said ragweed pollen can travel as far as 30 miles, and it’s easily breathed in. Goldenrod, on the other hand, is pollinated by insects. Its pollen grains are big, heavy and almost Velcro-like, designed to stick to visiting insects and
The fall bloomer often gets blamed for autumn allergies, when the real culprit is ragweed. What’s more, some people can see it only as a weedy wildflower, not an asset to a garden. It’s time to change that thinking. Goldenrod has much to offer in the landscape. It
be carried to other plants. The pollen grains fall to the ground rather than wafting in the air. While Faltay said you might breathe in some goldenrod pollen if you were very close to the plants, normally people aren’t exposed to it that way. And while the scent of goldenrod might produce a sneeze, that’s not a true allergic reaction, he said.

Avoiding the dreAded FreshmAn 15

An education in healthful choices for students
mArY therese BieBeL
From Erika Green’s whole-grain pasta to the collard greens, wild rice and ﬁsh on Jared Luchetta’s plate, Wilkes University’s cafeteria on a recent Wednesday appeared to be ﬁlled with healthful choices. That’s good news for anyone trying to avoid what nutritionists and student advisers tend to call “the dreaded Freshman 15,” and, yes, the phrase doesn’t seem complete without the adjective. After all, in an age of increasing obesity, most people are dismayed to see the number on the scale creep up. While not every college freshman gains weight, some may have a difﬁcult time avoiding it, Geisinger Health Care System dietitian Samantha Cortese said. Adjusting to new freedoms and a demanding schedule, they may ﬁnd themselves eating for comfort, indulging in 2 a.m. pizza fests, and ﬁnding little time for exercise. “We were going to go running together, weren’t we?” asked pharmacy major Liz Walters, 22, of York. “Yeah, we went once,” classmate Keith Hunsicker, 22, of Telford, Pa., responded. Walters and Hunsicker were eating lunch recently in the Henry Student Center at a table ﬁlled with fourth-year students, who expect to graduate from Wilkes’
Caesar salad, a tuna wrap and 2 percent milk made up the bulk of Keith hunsicker’s lunch, which also included a side of fries. A fourth-year pharmacy student from telford, he said he gains a few pounds every year and takes them off over the summer. At right is pharmacy student Alyssa Jones.

six-year pharmacy program in 2016. It’s been a while since they were freshmen, but Hunsicker remembers he started a pattern that year of gaining a few pounds each semester and losing
it over the summer. He doesn’t worry about it, he said, explaining taste appeal was the main reason he ﬁlled a tray with a tuna wrap, salad and french fries. When she was a fresh-
man, Walters said, she gained about 10 pounds but subsequently lost most of it. She tries to make healthful choices — such as a turkey burger with cheese and a salad — but
admits she doesn’t have time to be the track-andﬁeld athlete she was in high school. “With certain majors, you’re sedentary a lot of the time. But, a few of us get together for
‘Insanity,’ ” she said, explaining there’s extra motivation when a group of friends exercises in time with that intense workout video. Making time for physical activity is a good tool
to help students stay ﬁt, Cortese, the dietitian, said in a telephone interview. “There are usually a lot of great exercise opportunities on a campus,” she said. “They’ll have exercise classes; they’ll have gyms. “If it’s a nice day, get out and walk. Don’t take the shuttle bus to the parking lot,” Cortese suggested, adding club sports and intramural sports teams can be a fun way to stay active. “I have a sport, if you count studying,” Erika Green said with a laugh. Seriously, Wilkes student Green, 21, of Kingston, said she makes time for 15 to 30 minutes of walking or riding an exercise bike every day, and she watches what she eats — selecting salads and whole-grain pasta when it’s available, choosing lean meats for protein and trying to avoid the empty calories of junk food and soda. When we caught up with her last week, for example, her beverage was water. Hunsicker’s was 2 percent milk, and Walters had diluted lemonade with water to slash the calories. At a nearby table, Jared Luchetta, 18, of Hazleton, who is a freshman undeclared science major, opted for chocolate milk — calcium-rich but a bit of a calorie indulgence — that he balanced out with tilapia, wild rice and collard greens. To tell the truth, Luchetta really See DIET | 2D
Searching for a good night’s sleep
McClatchy News Service
MINNEAPOLIS — Most nights, Thomas Copenhaver ﬁnds himself sleepless. So, he used a sleep-monitoring device to ﬁnd out how bad it was: While he was in bed for six hours and 42 minutes one night, he woke up 14 times and slept only two hours and 46 minutes. “It’s kind of like the night before a vacation — you don’t sleep because you worry that you’ll oversleep and miss your ﬂight,” he said. “That’s just me in a nutshell every day.” With as many as 70 million Americans reporting trouble sleeping, health ofﬁcials have
redoubled efforts to unlock the mysteries of this essential bodily function. Still, they’re only beginning to learn how sleep works and why we need it. “We’re not even at the halfway point of our understanding of the complexities of sleep and health,” said Dr. Mark Hansen of the Mayo Clinic’s Center for Sleep Medicine in Rochester, Minn. What we do know is that our 24/7 priorities have shifted away from getting a good night’s sleep. “This business of sleep deprivation is not so much a disorder as a choice,” said Dr. Virend Somers, a Mayo Clinic cardiologist who has been
studying the effects of sleep disorders on the heart for 25 years. “And one of the reasons it’s a choice is people don’t quite understand or realize the consequences of not getting enough sleep.” Earlier this year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declared sleeplessness “a public health epidemic,” citing a link to chronic diseases, such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease, depression and even “early death.” Adults need seven to nine hours of sleep a night to function properly. Yet, one out of three American adults say they routinely See SLEEP | 2D

From page 1D hadn’t known what that last item was. “I just told them to give me some of everything (at the hot-entree station),” he said. Tasting it, he described it as “OK” and said he likes spinach better. Campus cafeterias such as the ones Sodexo runs at Wilkes University and King’s College offer an array of food stations, so there are usually plenty of opportunities to try new foods. Cortese advises filling half a plate with veggies and fruit and devoting the remaining two quadrants to a lean protein and a healthful starch. “The real focus is setting up a healthy plate,” she said, suggesting grilled or broiled chicken without the skin, ﬁsh, lean beef, hummus or tofu as the protein. For a starch, she recommends “any kind of whole-grain pasta or rice or a baked sweet potato,” or maybe the seeds of a delicate grain-like herb called quinoa. “That’s trendy now.” “The nice thing about the campus cafeterias is they like to keep portions to single servings, so you can try to avoid that all-out binge,” Cortese said, suggesting students wait before reﬁlling a plate, to give their brains time to signal that they’re full. If you want dessert, fruit is
TIPS FROM THE DIETITIAN
• Soda, sweetened coﬀee beverages and alcohol all can wreck your diet, but water is your friend. • Make time for exercise in your daily routine. • Fill half your plate with veggies and fruits, the rest with lean protein and a healthful starch. • If you really want an indulgent dessert, split it with a friend.
an ideal option. If you’re intent on having something that’s more of a confection, she said, try splitting it with a friend. “Drink plenty of water,” Cortese added, “and avoid sweetened beverages like regular sodas. Be cautious of coffee drinks because they could easily have 300 calories in a medium.” Also, she said, pay attention to every bite. “If you notice you’re a rapid eater, pace yourself. Turn the TV off. Turn off your laptop. Talk to your companions and savor the food. Finally, she pointed out, many calories a college student might consume are due to alcohol. They’re either in the drink itself or the drinking makes you feel hungry so you dig into the deep-fried chicken wings or potato chips or pizza. “Of course you would want
Ericka Green, 21, of Kingston, said she tends to choose whole-grain pasta when it’s available, one of many healthful choices she makes in the university cafeteria.

to make sure you’re of legal age,” Cortese cautioned. “And then, think of portion
size. The recommendation is no more than two drinks per occasion for a male and one
for female. Any more than that brings on food cravings.” It also could make you too
drunk to drive safely — but that’s a topic for another health story.
From page 1D get less than seven, according to the CDC. On average, people are getting two hours less sleep a night than we did 40 years ago. Young people, in particular, might be setting themselves up for future problems because of their round-the-clock devotion to mobile devices and social media. “We are only going to see the health consequences of those lifestyle choices 20 to 30 years down the road,” Somers said. Hansen said scientists know that sleep plays a vital role in repairing our bodies, consolidating memory and other rejuvenating functions. Yet they still haven’t determined exactly how some of these re-energizing properties work. A groundbreaking study published last fall in the Annals of Internal Medicine documented what happened when a group of healthy volunteers were allowed to sleep for just 4.5 hours a night. After several nights in a row, their fat cells aged and became less sensitive to insulin — a characteristic of diabetes, University of Chicago researchers found. Troubled sleepers are increasingly seeking medical treatment, propelling the number of sleep centers to an all-time high. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine has accredited an estimated 2,500 sleep centers across the country. Inside these laboratories, specialists treat a host of disorders, including insomnia, sleepwalking, narcolepsy and restless leg syndrome. At Mayo’s sleep center, one of the nation’s largest, sleep studies are conducted on patients six nights a week in the 24-bed clinical lab. Ted Mueller, of Rochester, spent a night under observation last year. A snorer who complained of always feeling tired, he was referred by his doctor, who suspected that he might have sleep apnea, a serious disorder that interrupts a person’s breathing while sleeping. When Mueller checked into the sleep center, sensors were attached to his eyes, scalp, face, chest and legs. Electrodes monitored his breathing, movement and heart. Infrared cameras captured images of him while technicians monitored the room. Halfway through the night, a technician woke Mueller to equip him with a CPAP machine, which blows air into the nose. The next day, Mueller’s sleep doctor reviewed the results. “They found I had fairly significant sleep apnea,” he said. “They told me that out of the four stages of sleep, I was only sleeping in the first two phases.” Now he sleeps with the CPAP machine most nights and says he feels “fantastic.” While a high-tech sleep lab might provide the answer for some people, many turn to home remedies. In fact, Hansen and other doctors urge their patients to improve their “sleep hygiene,” nighttime rituals that foster good sleeping conditions. Janine Hanson, who owns a communications consulting business, struggled off and on with sleep problems until she worked on her sleep hygiene. Now, she goes to bed at 11 every night and avoids making plans that will interfere with her bedtime. She switched from coffee to tea, sleeps with eye shades and leaves her cell phone outside her bedroom. “Having those rituals makes me feel like I have some control,” she said. Managing technology is essential to a good night’s sleep, but there are no clear guidelines. Some doctors recommend avoiding screen time before bedtime, but a recent Mayo study suggests that holding the devices at least 14 inches away from your eyes will diminish the effects on the body’s melatonin, a hormone that helps control the natural sleep cycle. “I tell my patients if you find something that works, stick with it,” Hansen said. Take Copenhaver, of Richfield, Minn. He’s gone to great lengths in his mission to fall asleep, including sleeping pills and heavy exercise. But when all else fails, he simply watches old TV shows. “It used to be ‘M*A*S*H*,’” he said. “Anything that I’ve watched a lot before works. … Anything that I don’t have to pay attention to. It works every time.” Lately, his show of choice is an episode of “The West Wing.” It’s the one, Copenhaver says, where they have to bring in a shrink because the president can’t sleep.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Brady Williams has ﬁve wives and 24 children but no organized religion. The newest polygamous family from Utah on reality TV considers itself progressive and independent. Williams and his wives slowly withdrew from the fundamentalist Mormon church in their rural community outside of Salt Lake City during the mid2000s after re-evaluating their core beliefs. The family no longer teaches the tenets of fundamental Mormonism to their children at home, opting instead to take from other teachings such as Buddhism to instill good, moral values in their two dozen children, who range in age from 2-20. “Since we have left the religion, it’s now about love and it’s about commitment, and it’s about happiness as a family,” said Brady Williams, 43, a project manager in his brother’s construction business. “It’s not about the fear of hell or the promise of heaven.” It wasn’t the ﬁrst time Brady Williams has crossed religious lines. As a teenager, his parents left mainstream Mormonism and joined polygamy. He said that transition was very difﬁcult but not as hard as leaving the fundamentalist church his ﬁve wives all grew up in. The women still have family members in the church who pray for them
A new polygamous family debuts on realityTV

to repent and return. They haven’t been ostracized by family and friends in the community, but town leaders have made it clear to Brady Williams, a former church leader, that they prefer the family leave town. Dealing with that scrutiny may help the Williamses as they brace for newfound attention now that TLC has debuted the one-hour special about the family, called “My Five Wives.” The show, which aired again Monday night, could turn into a full series depending on ratings. Non-afﬁliated plural families are actually quite common among the estimated 38,000 fundamentalists who practice or believe in polygamy, most living in Utah and other western states, said Anne Wilde, co-founder of a polygamy advocacy group called Principle Voices. The group estimates that about 15,000 are independent like the Williams.
The two largest organized polygamist churches are Warren Jeff’s Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on the Utah-Arizona border and the Apostolic United Brethren in northern Utah, of which the Williams used to belong. The practice of polygamy is a legacy of the early teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The mainstream church abandoned polygamy in 1890 as Utah moved toward statehood. The family lives in two large multiplexes built by Brady Williams that sit across a valley from a breathtaking mountain range. One is a two-story building that resembles a motel with three green doors on the bottom level, each the house of one of the wives. The other two wives live in the ground ﬂoor of an adjacent four-plex. Two of the wives work outside the home and one in the construction busi-
ness. The other two are taking college courses. Two of the wives are cousins, and all have been married to Brady Williams for at least 14 years. The ﬁve wives take turns ﬁxing dinners on weeknights for 30 hungry people. Rosemary, the third wife, likes to experiment with new recipes while the other wives stick with the old standbys like spaghetti. “It’s like having Thanksgiving dinner ﬁve nights a week,” Brady Williams said. The family is taking some risk in coming out: Polygamy is illegal in Utah and the trailblazers for polygamous families on reality TV, the Browns of the “Sister Wives,” ﬂed Utah for Las Vegas in 2011 after a local prosecutor opened an investigation after the ﬁrst season aired. No charges were ﬁled, but the family uprooted their lives and moved permanently to Nevada. The Browns challenged Utah’s
prohibition on plural marriage, and a ruling is pending from a federal judge. The Utah Attorney General’s ofﬁce does not enforce the law against consenting adults unless there is another crime involved such as child abuse, domestic violence or fraud, spokesman Paul Murphy said. Rosemary Williams, the third wife, said the fear of prosecution is always in the back of their minds, though they feel there is more acceptance for polygamous today than when the Browns came out. Brady Williams said the increasing social and legal acceptance of gay marriage has helped society open up
toward plural marriage. But he’s still concerned, which is why the show isn’t saying exactly where they live for the family’s safety. In addition to the Browns and now the Williams family, TLC also has done a special featuring the Darger family of Utah. HBO’s ﬁctional show about a polygamous family, “Big Love,” ran for ﬁve seasons. These shows create nervousness among plural families but the net impact is positive for the polygamous community because they help dispel many of the negative myths, said Wilde, of Principle Voices.
The Williams family said it chose to do the TV show after declining previous offers to show that polygamy can be healthy and stable. “There is an unhealthy stigma attached to polygamy,” Brady Williams said. “There is nothing wrong with consenting adults living and loving how they choose.” Pick your own Tomatoes

Volatile younger sister must take the initiative and reach out for help
Dear Abby: My younger sister, “Tanya,” is 22 and a single mother. Her son is 2. She’s pregnant again, and this time her baby will be a girl. My sister is very dramatic and emotional. She gets angry easily and has a short fuse. She’s great with her son, except he picks up on her drama and is somewhat dramatic himself. I’m concerned my niece will be just like her mother. Although Tanya has a good heart, her emotional issues have caused her to have horrible relationships with men, as our mother did. When I suggested to my sister that she talk to someone about her anger, she flipped out. We were both sexu-
ADVICE ally abused as children. I have dealt with those issues and she has not. Was I rude to suggest she see someone about her emotional problems? — Just Trying to Help
Dear Trying To Help: Suggesting that Tanya discuss this with a professional wasn’t rude; it was a loving thing to do. Your sister reacted defensively because she isn’t ready to admit she needs help. What you must do is hope that one day she will be receptive, but also accept that it may never happen. Not everyone is strong enough to face the
fact that they need help or willing to reach out for it. Dear Abby: How does a person quit being a quitter? At 46, I have realized that this is what I am. I have quit everything — church, jobs, school. If I don’t like a friend, I just drop the person. The same goes for books, exercise — everything! How do you stop the lifelong habit of quitting? — Quitter in Charleston Dear Charleston: I hate to see you give yourself a pejorative label. It’s time to have yourself evaluated because it is possible you suffer from attention deficit disorder — and if you do, there is help for it. If that’s not the case, start small, give yourself a goal you CAN accom-
plish and don’t stop until you have reached it. It doesn’t have to be anything complicated, but see it through. Then give yourself another, more difficult assignment and finish it. Perseverance is a skill that can be learned. Each time you succeed, you will reinforce the idea that you CAN do it. The more you do this, the better you will feel about yourself. Dear Abby: I am a married woman with several single friends. They are always eager to do things with me, but married life is a lot different than being single. I’d love to connect these friends, who don’t know each other. I realize making friends can be hard, and I’d love to help them in that way. What would be the best way to do this? I don’t have a lot of time to
spend inviting everyone together and having them get to know each other. I’d like to do a quick introduction, then let them go have fun doing “single people” things. Is this possible? — Unifier in Pittsburgh Dear Unifier: Absolutely. Call or email your friends and tell them there are people you want them to meet because you think they’d enjoy each other. Arrange a group lunch and introduce them. After that, if the chemistry is right, they’ll become friendly.

BY HOLIDAY MATHIS
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll deal in this conundrum today: Struggling to prove your deservedness really only proves that you believe you don’t deserve it. Believe in your worth. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The phone will keep buzzing, and the emails will keep rolling in — that’s just modern life. Don’t be bullied by your devices. Just because it rings or dings doesn’t mean you have to respond. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some people can sit and do nothing at all. You rarely see the value in this. However, there is great benefit to doing nothing at all for a stretch of today. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will notice the energy that’s directed at you, as you are very attractive to people who are outside of your circle. You may talk and open up a bit, but remain protective of your time. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). People seem to expect something from you that is different from what you’d like to give — a clue that you may be mismatched to your environment. The way to find out is to explore a bit and see whether things aren’t better “over there.” VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may do nontraditional things with your loved one from time to time, but your relationship itself is quite traditional in terms of the role you expect each other to play. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There is always a simple solution and the hard way. Being relaxed helps you see a the simple solution. If you are not relaxed, you’ll notice only the hard way. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s one thing to be surprised by a sudden bout of good fortune and quite another to expect it. The latter is demotivating. If you’re going to give someone a gift, let it be a surprise. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re a fast learner. You may get it wrong once, but you won’t get it wrong the same way twice. You’ll switch tactics at least three times before the day is over. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You want to be independent, but someone will offer to help you, and you will seem like an ingrate if you don’t take that help. This is a legitimate assist. And don’t worry — if it works out, it will still be you doing the work. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you can be still inside yourself, you will be protected from the chaos of the world. It will swirl around you, but you won’t be swept up in the momentum. You’ll be the eye of the storm. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Those who have not been well taken care of by their families value loyalty just as much as others do. Have patience with those who are still learning the power of allegiance. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 17). A special someone will help you understand and use your talents. October brings a career breakthrough. Spend many hours fully fleshing out your ideas before you share them with a potential team in November. You’ll find a benefactor in December. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 22, 13, 29 and 48.
