New jobs coming to old coal site

As many as 1,100 jobs at 3 businesses could be created on Huber Breaker properties

Former coal dump land in Hanover Township has been reclaimed by The Earth Conservancy and is being marketed to warehousing and manufacturing companies. A company is negotiating to purchase the land and already has its own forlease signs on the property.

HANOVER TWP. Two properties where waste rock from coal processed at the Huber Breaker once accumulated are close to being sold and transformed into sites for at least three businesses projected to employ as many as 1,100 people. The states Commonwealth Financing Authority on

Tuesday agreed to provide a $3.5 million Business in Our Sites loan to TC NE Metro Development Inc. of Conshohocken. That company, a subsidiary of the Texas-based Trammell Crow Co., plans to acquire the two sites, totalling 169 acres, from the Earth Conservancy and invest nearly $63.4 million to establish the Hanover Ridge Trade Center, according to state Rep. Jerry Mullery.

The 2 percent, 20-year loan from the state is to be used for site developments and infrastructure improvements including trafc signals, road improvements, site grading, road paving and water and sewer improvements. The project is expected to create more than 1,100 jobs, according to the state. The properties are near the entrance of the Hanover Industrial Estates along New Commerce Boulevard off Hanover Street. This strategic state investment will help turn what once was a barren site into an area that will be an ideal location for industry, warehouses and manufacturers, Mullery, D-Newport Township, said.

Im especially pleased that we are reusing a former brownelds site for economic development. Mike Dziak, the president and chief executive ofcer of the Earth Conservancy, said the potential for a sale and development of those properties help his organization achieve its original goal of reclaiming mine land. Its an exciting thing for this area, Dziak said. It was garbage land, totally mined out. Its an exciting thing for us. It will be our largest sale in our history and shows reclaiming mine land is an investment in our future. The Earth Conservancy

Judges to decide Sanduskys appeal

Ex-PSU assistant coachs petition gets hearing in state court session at county courthouse

PITTSTON City police were on the suspects trail early Tuesday a Bud Light trail. Police tracked a series of beverage containers to the Susquehanna River shoreline, they say, where Thomas Gale and John Patte were arrested after a reported burglary at a Kennedy Boulevard distributor. While Gale and Patte were being arrested, police allege Cody Nelson returned and grabbed a few Bud Light cans scattered on the ground. All three were later charged with burglary and other offenses. Police were alerted to a burglary at Patels Beverage at 250 Kennedy Blvd. at about 2:16 a.m. When ofcers arrived, they followed the obvious clues from the business to Riverfront Park, according to arrest papers. Gale, 37, and Patte, 48, who reportedly are homeless, began to run as ofcers yelled for them to stop, police said. During a foot chase, an ofcer fell and suffered a minor hand injury. Patte was arrested when he was found lying on the ground adjacent to the river, and Gale was arrested after a struggle with an ofcer, police said.

WILKES-BARRE A panel of state Superior Court judges now have Jerry Sanduskys fate in their hands as they consider an appeal made by his attorney, Norris Gelman, based on errors Gelman contends were made at the 2012 trial. Sandusky, 69, was convicted of molesting 10 boys in a case that led to the ring of longtime Penn State football coach Joe Paterno and NCAA sanctions

against Penn States football program. Sandusky is serving a 30-to-60-year prison sentence. Gelman argued at an appeal hearing held at the Luzerne County Courthouse on Tuesday afternoon that because of the errors made at Sanduskys trial 15 months ago, his client should be entitled to a new trial. The high court, which often takes its court sessions on the road to provide an educational setting to communities, heard three appeals at the courthouse Tuesday afternoon Sanduskys, Michael Veons and Hernan Torres and about 10 appeals in the morning at Dallas High School. The court will hear about another 35 at the Dallas High

Most of the machines will be laptops for student and teacher use

Pittston Area buying 1,250 computers

will be ordered rst thing today. This gets the devices into the hands of our teachers and students, Garzella said. The cost is $577,118 over ve years, which amounts to $146,876 for each of four years of the 1.8 percent loan to fund the purchases. Garzella said the money has already been budgeted. The loan is being furnished through First Keystone Bank and the computers are being purchased through IntegraOne. Both were low bidders. Ten laptops will be put in each kindergarten through fourthgrade classroom where teachers are starting a hybrid learning initiative. At any given time one group will be getting direct teacher instruction, one group will be working on projects and another will be using the laptops for math and reading skills. Software will allow the teacher to group students based on the data from the computer and it will allow students to move at their own pace, Garzella said. We want to get to the point where students arent being held back. Students in grades ve to 12 will have access to carts of 30 laptops. Garzella said the purchase is the second part of the districts technology plan. The rst, he said, was to upgrade the infrastructure in the schools to make each wi- capable. That is being implemented. All the computers and power adapters will be tagged and inventoried through the district warehouse. The units are replacing outdated computers, said district Technology Director Christy Savakinas. She said 95 percent of the computers are more than ve years old. In other business, the board: Unanimously voted to hire Nick Barberi as a math teacher. Barberi had been teaching and coaching football at Delaware Valley High School in Milford. Barberi is the son of longtime Pittston Area football coach Bob Barberi, who retired in 1988. Bob Barberi had been the coach at the former Pittston High School and Pittston Area for 23 seasons. We hired Nick because we thought he was the best-qualied math teacher; he has a lot of experience, Garzella said. And thats who the (hiring) committee recommended. Hired Laura Labruto as a special-education teacher. Board member Kent Bratlee said he abstained from the vote because he works for the candidates father, and Joe Kelly abstained because he wasnt part of the interviews.

Union balks on county offices cross-training, official says

Courthouse Annex. The plan was to teach employees how to perform the duties of coworkers so services could be covered when someone who normally handles a particular task is out of the ofce or busy. The wills and deeds employees are covered by two different collective bargaining agreements, both under the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, or AFSCME, union. Hoggarth said the union is not in total agreement that cross-training is permissible under union contracts. She has presented job descriptions and other information to the union but was instructed to hold off on implementing cross-training pending negotiations with the union. Some workers are still crosstraining on their own without a directive from management, Hoggarth said. Hoggarth said she is condent departments in her division which also includes the sheriff, coroner, civil and criminal court records ofces will meet overall revenue and spending budget allotments at the end of the year. The main concern is a $300,000 revenue shortfall in the civil court record division, but ofcials said receipts are expected to close that gap. Some highlights from department heads: Art Bobbouine, interim overseer of the criminal and civil record departments, announced workers have corrected a criminal court record processing backlog. The recording and ling of records were up to a year behind. Filings are up in the deeds ofce, which processes documents related to property transactions. The ofce handles about 40,000 documents annually, but lings have been increasing an average 275 per month, Hoggarth said. She attributed much of the increase to mortgage renancing and more real estate activity at the Eagle Rock residential development in Hazle Township. Interim Coroner William Lisman said his ofces 2013 budget of $487,000 pales in comparison to several other similarly sized, third-class counties. He cited the following coroner budgets in other counties: Lehigh, $1.8 million; Dauphin, $1.3 million; and Lancaster, $1.15 million. Lisman attributed his lower budget to the countys heavy reliance on funeral directors as outside contractors to handle reviews of the deceased. These contractors are paid $65 to $75 per call, which costs less than hiring employees, he said. Tuesdays budget session was the last before county Manager Robert Lawton presents his proposed 2014 budget to council by the Oct. 15 home rule deadline, Council Chairman Tim McGinley said. Council and the public will have about two weeks to digest the proposal before the rst 2014 budget public budget hearing on Oct. 29, he said.


Employee cross-training required to effectively merge two Luzerne County ofces under the new home rule structure has been slowed by union resistance, a county ofcial said. County Judicial Services and Records Division Head Joan Hoggarth disclosed the matter during a Tuesday night budget work session when Councilman Harry Haas asked for a status report on the restructuring of ofces in her division. Hoggarth said grievances were led when she started implementing cross-training in the deeds and wills ofces, which are now housed together in the countys River Street

HARVEYS LAKE Lakeside Drive resident Jeffrey Algott asked Borough Council on Tuesday night to immediately remove a fence that was placed by neighbor Francis Kopko. But Solictor Charles McCormick said the borough has no authority to move onto private property. McCormick added that the matter is being looked into by an impartial third party, Pasonick Engineering. Kopko, of Pole 127, said he put up the fence because the Jeffrey and Mary Jo Algott, at Pole 126, have propane tanks on his property, leaving a liability issue for him and his wife, Margaret, who have lived on the property for the past 43 years. Kopko also said that there was never a problem with the past owners, and that they never went on his property and always asked for permission if they did. The Algotts have stated that the fence is hindering access to their basement, which houses their heating unit, creating an unsafe environment. The Algotts have also stated that the Kopkos have unsafe issues on their property. One such issue, the Algotts said, was the storing of rain water in buckets, creating a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Kopko, a borough councilman, responded that he immediately complied with the law, and has added holes to the bottom of the buckets. He said that the Algotts, however, have not complied with the law, as they have vio-

lations, such as an air conditioner compressor which is not three feet away from the property line, a satellite dish on the side of their house, which is also not three feet away from the line, and a fence that is not within the legal limits. They have an illegal non-conforming lot and a non-conforming structure, Kopko added. He also said he and his wife have been fearful of them (the Algotts ) taking over our property. The Algotts have said they feel that Kopko is being given preferential treatment because he is a councilman, which he denies. A hearing has been scheduled on the matter before a district judge at 9:30 a.m. Sept. 25. The matter will be brought up at an Oct. 21 hearing. In other matters, Fred Lubnow, of Princeton Hydro, gave a report on the status of the floating wetland islands. Lubnow said that the five islands will be installed next spring, and that the state Department of Environmental Protection grant has been sent back in exchange for a no-cost time extension grant. Also, Mayor Clarence Hogan said the Homecoming event raised $5,747, which will be donated to various organizations. The mayor also presented Joseph Reilly and family with a plaque of appreciation for their generous gift to the Homecoming Committee. The next meeting of council will be on Oct. 15 at 7:30 p.m.

Redevelopment Authority wants to seek buyer before donating building to Historical Society

Wednesda, September 18, 2013 PAGE 3A


Developers sought for New Jersey Central station

after the appraisal is completed, authority Executive Director Andrew Reilly said. Before theres any talk of handing property over to anyone, we really should see what the property might bear to some developer who can come in and purchase the property from the authority and do a rst-class development, he said. Expressing concerns about the propertys deterioration, the Historical Society voted in July to request ownership of the site at the corner of Market Street and WilkesBarre Boulevard to ensure it will be preserved. The society is interested in obtaining the entire 6-acre property, which also includes a strip mall. Payment wasnt offered because society members estimate they must raise around $2 million to demolish deteriorating additions constructed in 1975 and restore the original station. A prior county administration gave the authority $6.1 million to buy the property for an appraised $5.8 million and start designing a restoration. County Manager Robert Lawton canceled an additional $2 million allocation to the authority in May 2012 to renovate the station for a tourism bureau and other county-related ofces, saying he would have a difcult time getting business loan funds for a project that wont create jobs. Congdon Hynes Appraisal LLC, which handles commercial property valuations in Pennsylvania and New York, will be paid $6,500 to complete an appraisal of the property within 30 days, Reilly said. The property is divided into three parcels the station, strip mall and vacant land that will be appraised separately in case prospective developers are interested in only one piece, Reilly said. Former county controller Walter Grifth urged the authority to act quickly so the station doesnt turn into another Hotel Sterling, but he said he has concerns about giving the property to the society when $5.8 million in public funds were spent acquiring it. Kingston resident Brian Shiner also said he believes the 145-year-old train station should be saved for its historical value, but he does not believe the property should be donated. Richard Kramer, a certied public accountant from Edwardsville, said he cochaired the Save Our Station committee that removed the train station from demolition as part of the Wilkes-Barre Boulevard construction project in the 1970s. The committee got the station on the National Register of Historic Places. Its a beautiful building. Its the only remaining railroad station of any consequence in Luzerne County, he said. Kramer said he is concerned vandals and other intruders are damaging the structure and asked about security. Reilly said an authority employee frequently monitors the structure and checks for evidence of break-ins, but the authority does not have funds to mothball the structure.

Catholic War Vets to meet

Catholic War Veterans, Holy Rosary Post 274, will hold its monthly meeting at 7 tonight in the club at 175 Old Ashley Road. The agenda will include nominations for new ofcers. All members are encouraged to attend.


Vaccine clinic is scheduled

The Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Wilkes-Barre City Health Department will be administering free meningococcal, tetanus (Tdap), and chicken pox vaccines from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday at the 109th Armory, 280 Market St., Wilkes-Barre. Vaccines are available for adolescents entering seventh to 12th grade who have not been previously vaccinated for these illnesses. Prior to attending the clinic, parents should submit their childs immunization record via fax to the Luzerne County State Health Center at 570820-4947. Wilkes-Barre city residents should fax records to 570-208-4105. Anyone with questions should call the Luzerne County State Health Center at 570-826-2071 or the WilkesBarre City Health Department at 570208-4268.

Luzerne County Redevelopment Authority members want to see if any private developers are interested in buying the landmark New Jersey Central train station in downtown WilkesBarre before they entertain a request to donate the historic structure to the county Historical Society. The authority voted Tuesday to proceed with a property appraisal, which should be completed in 30 days, and publicly seek proposals from interested developers. A request for proposals is near completion and should be publicly released shortly

EXETER Union and school district attorneys are to meet Tuesday to continue negotiating a contract for Wyoming Area School District teachers, a conference that could end a strike now 12 days long. The parties have not met since negotiations failed in the middle of August. Teachers arrived in full force at a school board work session Tuesday night. They outnumbered residents at the meeting by about three to one. Some in the crowd were angry that another week will pass with classrooms empty, but the boards attorney handling bargaining arrangements, Jack Dean, said Wyoming Area Education Association attorney John Holland suggested Tuesday for the meeting and he agreed. I am condent, Dean said. Mr. Holland and I have a professional relationship. Our goal is to reach a fair contract. One teachers spouse spoke against the boards ignorance of an employees right to earned pay raises. Others in attendance urged board members to hold their ground and not give in to demands of the

union. John Pegg of West Wyoming told the board that by his calculations the districts general fund budget is headed for a negative balance and any agreement should be based on turning that around. Any proposal, I dont care from what side union, district it has to be scally responsible, Pegg said. What were trying to accom-

plish here is to keep the students learning. The teachers collective bargaining agreement expired in 2010. For the last three years, educators have worked under terms of the old contract without raises. Teachers struck Sept. 3 when the school board balked at union proposals for a compensation package. The hardest fought battles are over teacher contribution

to insurance premiums and scheduled pay raises for the 2011-2012 school year. The two parties must reach an agreement with enough time for students to nish school by June 15. If they cannot agree to contract terms, both must enter non-binding arbitration. If a second strike occurs, they must return with enough time to complete 180 days by June 30.

In other business, the board is to vote at Tuesdays regular board meeting to approve Janet Serino as superintendent replacing Ray Bernardi, who announced his resignation last month. Serino is now the assistant superintendent and has worked for the district for 13 years. The salary for her veyear contract would start at $113,065.

HAZLETON Ed Pawlowski would explore a severance tax on natural gas drilling and the leasing of state liquor stores as two options for restoring funding to public schools and other programs hit hard by cuts, the two-term Allentown mayor said during a gubernatorial campaign stop here on Tuesday. Democrat Pawlowski predicted that a 4 percent tax on the volume of gas extracted from the Marcellus Shale formation in Pennsylvania could generate $1.2 billion in revenues by 2019 and given the implementation of such taxes in other states, such as West Virginia and Texas, he does not believe it would hamper this states gas drilling industry. Look, the gas is here. We have the gas. Where are they going to go? Pawlowski said of drillers. I think they just want to know what the rules are. Pawlowski, 48, who also is running for a third term as mayor of the states third-largest city, kicked off his bid to unseat rst-term Republican Gov.

Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor in 2014, and his campaign stopped Tuesday afternoon at the Casa Dominicana de Hazleton in Hazleton.

Ed Pawlowski joins a crowded field of Democrats who have announced their candidacies or are widely expected to run for their partys gubernatorial nod for 2014. They include: Former DEP Secretary John Hanger State Treasurer Rob McCord afternoon at La Casa Dominicana de Hazleton, a community center on North Laurel Street, with his remarks translated by an interpreter. Cities are built on immigrants. They bring energy and creativity into the marketplace, Pawlowski said. He sees the relative harmony among Allentowns 40 ethnic groups and

Building bridges was a key theme emphasized by the two-term mayor, who said that Pennsylvanias next

governor will need to break through partisan gridlock in Harrisburg before anything of substance can be accomplished, whether that be passage of a transportation bill or increasing funding to schools or attracting more jobs to the state. The next governor needs to have a vision and is going to need to be able to sell that vision across the state, Pawlowski said. That, he said, is what he has done in Allentown over the past eight years, pointing to results ranging from a billion dollars in new development to a deal to lease his citys water and sewer plant to a county authority, generating $220 million. That enabled Allentown to fully fund its pension liabilities and reduce the citys overall debt by 38 percent, he added. He believes a similar arrangement could be applied to Pennsylvanias state-owned liquor stores. We dont have to sell them. No one has to lose their job, Pawlowski said. Whatever revenue options the state pursues, Pawlowski said, restoration of funding to all levels of education is a key priority, both for its impact on residents lives and to foster job creation. While quick to point out he is not proposing cuts to the prison system, Pawlowski said an increase in state spending on that sector from $80 million in 1990 to $1.75 billion today is symptomatic of cuts to education. We have more people in prison in this country than any other country, including China, he said. If we dont start promoting public education now, were just going to be building bigger prisons later.

Township. Carol Hurley, head of the Luzerne County Sports Hall of Fame chapter, said Joe Amato, noted drag racing champion, and Harry Amato Fritz Dorish, a former major league baseball pitcher, have been nominated for induction into the state Hall of Fame next year. The inductees wont be announced until March, Hurley said. Were honored that Luzerne County has been selected as the site for this prestigious event, Mackin said. This will be a boost to the local economy and we will receive statewide recognition in the media. Hurley said the convention location is moved each year and being selected is a signicant honor for the

county. Now we have to wait to see if our two nominees Joe Amato and Fritz Dorish are approved for induction, she said. In 10 years in the American League, Dorish, who died in 2000, compiled a 45-43 win-loss record and a 3.83 earned run average. He pitched for the Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles. Amato, 69, now a successful real estate developer, won the National Hot Rod Association Top Fuel championship ve times a record and he racked up 52 career victories.

competition. In other business, the board announced it will submit its 2014 budget in the same amount as 2013 $524,650. Mackin said no funding will be asked for or received from the county. He said the main source of revenue is the hotel tax at

around $460,000. Mackin said the Mohegan Sun Hotel in Plains Township is scheduled to open in November, but he said he could not estimate what affect it will have on the county revenue. Up until two years ago, the agency did receive some funding from the county

but that amount declined from as high as $100,000 to $40,000 two years ago. He said state funding also has been lost. The last state allocation was around $107,000, he said. To compensate for the lost revenues, Mackin said the budget was reduced signicantly.

months in prison on an unrelated escape charge and two years house arrest on the corruption of minors charge. Police said Jovanov had inappropriate contact with a juvenile female in April 2006. He was originally charged with a number of crimes, include rape and indecent assault. In the escape case, investigators say Jovanov was serving a sentence on drug and receiving stolen property charges at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility in March 2006 and was on work release.

Investigators said Jovanov did not return to the prison after completing a work shift. Jovanovs attorney, Tom Marsilio, said in court papers that nothing at the time required his client to register under Megans Law, but that now the county probation ofce is requiring Jovanov to do so. After a hearing Tuesday, county Senior Judge Chester Muroski said Jovanovs requirement to register is put on hold until the outcome of an appeal determining those specic issues in the case.

WILKES-BARRE An attorney for the county in a lawsuit led by former chief public defender Al Flora has led court papers asking that Floras attorneys be removed from the case, citing professional misconduct. Attorney John Dean said in court papers led Tuesday that Floras attorneys should be dismissed for violating the state Rules of Professional Conduct and contacting potential plaintiffs in the case. Flora led the suit in April 2012, claiming the Public Defenders Ofce was so underfunded and understaffed it could not provide adequate defense to indigent clients. The situation had become so dire, Flora argued, he was compelled to limit the type of cases the ofce would accept. That left more than 300 defendants to face charges without an attorney as the county failed to provide an alternate source of legal representation, according to the lawsuit. Several new plaintiffs were recently added to the suit, and the county led its preliminary objections to have the suit dismissed in recent days. Dean said in a ling Tuesday that, after much consideration, the county decided to make the request to have Floras attorneys removed because they contacted potential plaintiffs already represented by the county Public Defenders Ofce. Dean calls the actions serious and egregious ethical violations and notes state law says: A lawyer shall not solicit in person or by intermediary professional employment from a prospective client with whom the lawyer has no family or prior professional relationship when a signicant motive for the lawyers doing so is the lawyers pecuniary gain. County Senior Judge Joseph Augello scheduled a hearing for Oct. 8 to consider Deans request and hear from Floras attorneys, led by Kimberly Borland.

Syrian opposition urges world to act against Assad

The Associated Press

Russia: UN should bar force in Syria

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said a resolution on the U.S.-Russia deal must be enforceable, telling reporters the most effective way is under Chapter 7 of the U.N. Charter. That deals with threats to international peace and security and has provisions for enforcement by military or nonmilitary means, such as sanctions. While in principle all Security Council resolutions are legally binding, Ban said, in reality, we need clear guidelines under AP photo Chapter 7.

On Monday, U.N. inspectors submitted a report on the Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack near Damascus that deepened the Syrian crisis. It was the rst ofcial conrmation by impartial experts that chemical weapons were used in the attack, which killed hundreds. The report conrmed that chemical weapons were used but did not ascribe blame, and Lavrov and Fabius differed sharply on their interpretations. The report exposes the regime, Fabius said. On the basis of the information of our external agents, we consider that the report proves the responsibility of the regime for the chemical weapons attack of Aug. 21. The U.S., Britain and France said evidence in the report the type of rockets, the composition of the sarin agent, and trajectory of the missiles showed that Assads government was responsible.

Eruption forces thousands to evacuate Indonesias Mount Sinabung in western Indonesia spews volcanic ash into the air Tuesday. More than 6,200 people were evacuated from their villages Monday after the eruption of the 8,530-feet volcano. Mount Sinabung had been dormant for three years before it erupted, sending thick ash into the sky with small rocks pelting neighboring villages.

DAMASCUS, Syria Russia insisted Tuesday that a U.N. Security Council resolution governing Syrias handling of its chemical weapons not allow the use of force, but it suggested that could change if Damascus reneges on the deal to give up its stockpile. The main Syrian opposition coalition, meanwhile, urged the international community to take swift action against the regime of President Bashar Assad in response to a U.N. nding that the nerve agent sarin was used in a deadly attack near the capital last month.

President Barack Obama will host Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House later this month. The Sept. 30 meeting marks their rst face-to-face talks since March, when the U.S. president visited Israel. Obamas trip was followed by a restart in peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians. The White House says Obama and Netanyahu will discuss the peace talks, Iran, Syria and other regional issues. Obama and Netanyahu will both be in New York next week for meetings at the United Nations. Netanyahu says his stops in New York and Washington will focus on halting Irans nuclear program.

Muslim Brotherhood figure is arrested

Egyptian police arrested the main English-language spokesman of the Muslim Brotherhood on Tuesday along with other senior members of the group, all charged with inciting violence, state media and a security ofcial said. Gehad el-Haddad has emerged has one of the groups most well-known faces, appearing regularly in foreign media to defend the Brotherhoods policies during Mohammed Morsis year as president and following Morsis July 3 ouster by the military. His father, Essam el-Haddad, was a senior foreign policy aide to Morsi and has been in detention with Morsi since the coup. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki criticized the arrest as politically motivated, saying we are opposed to all politicized arrests, of course including this one, and detention, and remain focused on encouraging the interim government to move forward on an inclusive process that brings representatives from all sides.


LYONS, Colo. The emergency airlifts of ood victims waned Tuesday, leaving rescue crews to systematically search the nooks and crannies of the northern Colorado foothills and transportation ofcials to gauge what it will take to rebuild the wasted landscape. More than 3,000 people have been evacuated by air and ground since last weeks devastating oods, but calls for those emergency rescues are now dwindling, federal and state emergency ofcials said. Military rescue crews have met to identify new areas to check and places to cover again with hundreds of people still considered missing. Theyve kind of transitioned from that initial response to going into more of a grid search, Colorado National Guard Lt. Skye Robinson said. The states latest count has dropped to about 580 people missing, and the number continues to decrease as the stranded get in touch with families. One of the missing is Gerald Boland, a retired math teacher and basketball coach who lives in the damaged town of Lyons. Bolands neighbors, all of whom deed a mandatory evacuation order to stay behind, said Boland took his wife to safety Thursday then tried to return home. Two search teams went looking for him Monday. He was very sensible. I nd it amazing that he would do something that would put himself in harms way, said neighbor Mike Lennard. But you just never know under these circumstances. State ofcials reported eight ood-related deaths, and the number was expected to increase. It could take weeks or even months to search through ooded areas looking for people who died. With the airlifts tapering, state and local transportation ofcials are tallying the washed-out roads, collapsed bridges and twisted railroad lines. The rebuilding effort will cost hundreds of millions of dollars and take months, if not years. Initial assessments have begun trickling in, but many areas remain inaccessible and the continuing emergency pre-

vents a thorough understanding of the devastations scope. The numbers are going to change tomorrow as we get into more places, and the numbers are going to change the day after that, Federal Emergency Management Agency spokesman Ricardo Zuniga said. Northern Colorados broad agricultural expanses are especially affected, with more than 400 lane-miles of state highway and more than 30 bridges destroyed or impassable. A Colorado Department of Transportation helicopter crew has been surveying damage, said department

spokesman Ashley Mohr. County ofcials have started their own damage tallies: 654 miles of roads in Weld County bordering Wyoming, 150 miles of roads in the Boulder County roads foothills, along with hundreds of bridges, culverts and canals. Hard-hit Larimer County hasnt begun its assessment, with approximately 600 people there still awaiting rescue, but ofcials said the widespread damage leaves little doubt about what the price tag will be. Its going to be astronomical, theres no way around it, Capt. Ralph Kettle with the Poudre Fire Authority in Ft. Collins.

Storms in Mexico claim 47 lives

Associated Press


A Louisiana mans weekend alligator hunt has resulted in a colossal catch. Jim White, of Ventress, was hunting Saturday in West Baton Rouge Parish on Solitude Point when one of his lines indicated there was something on it. WAFB-TV reports what he found was a 13-foot, 4-inch alligator that weighed 760 pounds. White said the state doesnt record weight in its record books, only length. The longest alligator ever caught in Louisiana was 19-feet, 2-inches. Whites catch didnt make the books for length, but the weight is still worth noting.

ACAPULCO, Mexico The death toll rose to 47 Tuesday from the unusual one-two punch of a tropical storm and a hurricane hitting Mexico at nearly the same time. Authorities scrambled to get help into, and stranded tourists out of, the cutoff resort city of Acapulco. With roads blocked by landslides, rockslides, oods and collapsed bridges, Acapulco was cut off from road transport after Tropical Storm Manuel made landfall on Sunday. The terminal at the citys international was ooded, but not the landing strips. Commercial carriers and the Mexican military responded

by setting up ights ferrying tourists to a nearby concert hall instead of the terminal. Emergency ights began arriving in Acapulco to evacuate at least 40,000 mainly Mexican tourists stranded in the resort city where some streets were transformed into raging brown rivers. Interior Secretary Miguel Angel Osorio Chong told the Radio Formula that 27 people had died because of the storm in the Pacic coast state of Guerrero, where Acapulco is located. Osorio Chong said 20 more people died nationwide, many as a result of former hurricane Ingrid, which struck the Gulf coast on Monday. Mexican meteorologists said it was the rst time since 1958 that two tropical storms or hur-

ricanes had hit both the countrys coasts within 24 hours. While most Acapulco hotels seemed to be operating normally on Tuesday, many outly-

ing neighborhoods were without water or electricity, and oodwaters were knee-deep at the city airports check-in counters.

WASHINGTON The nations poverty rate remained stuck at 15 percent last year despite Americas slowly reviving economy, a discouraging lack of improvement for the record 46.5 million poor and an unwelcome benchmark for President Barack Obamas recovery plans. More than 1 in 7 Americans were living in poverty, not statistically different from the 46.2 million of 2011 and the sixth consecutive year the rate had failed to improve, the Census Bureau reported Tuesday. Median income for the nations households was $51,017, also unchanged from the previous year after two consecutive annual declines, while the share of people without health insurance did improve but only a bit, from 15.7 percent to 15.4 percent. Were in the doldrums, with high poverty and inequality as the new normal for the foreseeable future, said Timothy Smeeding, an economics professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who specializes in income inequality. The fact weve seen no real recovery in employment and wages means weve just atlined. Mississippi had the highest share of its residents in poverty, at 22 percent, according to rough calculations by the Census Bureau. It was followed by Louisiana, New Mexico and Arkansas. On the other end of the scale, New Hampshire had the lowest share, at 8.1 percent. The last signicant decline in the national poverty rate came in 2006, during the Bush administration and before the housing bubble burst and the recession hit. In 2011, the rate dipped to 15 percent from 15.1 percent, but census ofcials said that change was statistically insignicant. For the past year, the ofcial poverty line was an annual income of $23,492 for a family of four. The Census Bureaus annual report offers a snapshot of the economic well-being of U.S. households for 2012, when the unemployment rate averaged 8.1 percent after reaching an average high of 9.6 percent in 2010. Typically, the poverty rate tends to move in a similar direction as the unemployment rate, so many analysts had been expecting a modest decline in poverty. The latest census data show that the gap between rich and poor was largely unchanged over the past year, having widened since 2007 to historic highs.

Proven effective in double blind clinical study

By S. Hufford, Media Services

Doctors tummy tuck pill reduces fat bulges up to 400%

Fat in the abdominal area is different than fat in the rest of the body. It is difficult to reduce and is hazardous to your health. Abdominal fat produces destructive hormones that spread throughout the body. There are 2 types, outer fat and intestinal fat.
Dr. Frank Ryan, famous plastic surgeon to the Hollywood stars, was featured on television and in magazines across the nation on an extensive basis. Dr. Ryan fulfilled his lifelong dream of developing a line of products which would substantially improve personal appearance without plastic surgery. This product line, which includes an advanced abdominal fat reducer was previously only available to Dr. Ryans clients. It has now been made available to the public.

An advanced line of products produced by famous Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Frank Ryan is now available to the public. Previously these products had only been available to Dr. Ryans clients which included Oscar winning Hollywood movie stars and celebrities across the nation. These products substantially improve personal appearance without plastic surgery. Dr. Ryan, perhaps the most famous Hollywood plastic surgeon in recent times, was extensively featured on television and in magazines across the nation. Dr. Ryan was also one of the first professional staff members of Endless Youth and Life which provides products and services that make celebrities look and perform many years younger than their age. The first product being offered to the public is Dr. Ryans most popular non-surgical personal appearance enhancement product, Dr. Frank Ryans Abdominal Fat Reducer. Abdominal fat is the most stubborn fat to reduce and it is also the most hazardous fat to your health. Abdominal fat produces destructive hormones that spread throughout the body. A clinical study has shown that Dr. Frank Ryans Abdominal Fat Reducer can reduce your pot belly. A double blind pilot clinical study was conducted on Dr. Frank Ryans Abdominal Fat Reducer. The study was commissioned by Advanced Supplement Research and used a research group which has an expert staff consisting of more than 32 boardcertified physician investigators and more than 38 ACRP certified clinical research coordinators. This group conducts clinical services for the major drug companies. Test subjects did not exercise or diet differently than each other. Both groups were provided with calorie restriction instructions. But only the people taking Dr. Ryans pill formula experienced a 400% reduction in fat mass and a 2 times reduction in waist circumference. In addition, the study showed that Dr. Frank Ryans Abdominal Fat Reducer increased calorie burning so that you lose weight faster or you can eat more food without gaining weight. And, the study found that the all-natural Dr. Frank Ryans Abdominal Fat Reducer pill produced weight loss safely. How does Dr. Frank Ryans Abdominal Fat Reducer work? Benjamin Suarez, President of Endless Youth and Life explained. Suarez revealed, It was found in a number of research studies on laboratory animals and later confirmed in human studies, that a substance called Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) decreases abdominal body fat in three ways: 1.) CLA decreases abdominal body fat mass by decreasing the amount of abdominal fat that is stored after eating; 2.) CLA increases the rate of fat breakdown in abdominal fat cells; and 3.) CLA increases the rate of abdominal fat metabolism which decreases the total number of fat cells. You can think of CLA as a match that lights the fuse in abdominal fat. This fuse also increases metabolic rate that can result in more fat loss. Dr. Frank Ryans Abdominal Fat Reducer contains the effective dose of CLA. Suarez said, There are also a number of other beneficial effects to CLA that help decrease the future storage of fat. CLA interferes with an enzyme called lipoprotein lipase



Fat on outer abdomen reduced

Excess fat on outer abdomen Stubborn fat around intestines

Stubborn fat around intestines reduced

(LPL). LPL is an enzyme that helps store fat in the body.2 So, by inhibiting this fat-storing enzyme LPL, CLA can help reduce the re-accumulation of fat. CLA also helps the body use its existing abdominal fat for energy, thereby increasing fat oxidation and energy expenditure. Dr. Frank Ryans Abdominal Fat Reducer also contains other super highly advanced all-natural ingredients that help reduce abdominal fat. Studies have shown that Dr. Frank Ryans Abdominal Fat Reducer ingredients increase the rate of fat metabolism, which reduces both surface and intestinal abdominal fat and helps inhibit future formation of these abdominal fats.3, 4, 5 One of these ingredients is a very high quality and potent extract of green tea. This extract is EGCG, which has been shown in clinical studies to dramatically and quickly increase calorie burning which helps to quickly reduce abdominal body fat.4 These ingredients start working in 20 minutes to increase calorie burning, which is the first step to reducing the pot belly. Dr. Ryans other products include topicals, which reduce wrinkles and tighten saggy skin without plastic surgery. People who order Dr. Frank Ryans Abdominal Fat Reducer will have access to these highly advanced products used by the Hollywood stars.

Pennsylvania and the nation needs to improve the education process. As the state this week moved one step closer to nal implementation of Common Core Standards, we wish those standards came with a projected cost or projected funding. Pennsylvania on Thursday joined 44 states and the District of Columbia in adopting regulations grounded in the Common Core State Standards, a framework developed by the National Governors Association and Council of Chief State School Ofcers. The state Board of Education approved a set of regulations that included these Pennsylvania Core Standards with a 13-4 vote. The Common Core does not dictate a national curriculum. Local school districts will retain control over their own lesson plans and methods to teach the standards. We love that local control, because each school district faces its own challenges. While ofcials are correct to push standards that challenge our kids on an equal basis, leaving the nancial weight of how to reach those standards on area school districts and teachers is a heavy load. Most school districts over the past several years have battled with budget crises a process that is sure to continue as they begin planning the next budget. Teacher positions have been eliminated, course offerings cut and taxes increased. School districts dont seem to have a grasp yet how to deal with state education cuts ordered by Gov. Tom Corbett over the past couple years. Now districts face the challenge to

Unknown cost is real common core concern

We wish the process started at the bottom and outlined the financial burden and requirements for each school district as they relate to the eventual goals and standards. At least a best-guess, a sample spending plan or proposed financial aid should be on offer.


prepare their children for a new set of standards and the implementation of Keystone Exams a pass/fail test each student faces to graduate starting in 2017 without a clue as to what it will cost each local school, or whether the cost can be met to match the goals. It sounds like a work-more, spend-less approach with the outcome eventually falling to each individual student. We wish the process started at the bottom and outlined the nancial burden and requirements for each school district as they relate to the eventual goals and standards. At least a bestguess, a sample spending plan or proposed nancial aid should be on offer. Then the school districts can tell us how they plan to t that into their next budget and what it means to our children and our taxes. That sounds like a plan to pass the test, and passing, in the end, is the only option.

Golden record in deep space?

Ah, 1977. It was the fth anniversary of the Agnes ood that reshaped the Wyoming Valley and of the birth of HBO, which reshaped television. Jimmy Carter launched his presidency and I launched my West Hazleton bike shop (both proved to be illfated, though the shop lasted longer). Mark Apple computers incorporated, the Guydish rst Cray supercomStaff puter was shipped, the Columnist Coneheads debuted on Saturday Night Live and Roots redened the TV miniseries. Wilkes-Barre still had a population exceeding 50,000, though the decline continued. The Central Railroad of New Jersey Station was undergoing a painstaking restoration and revival as an elegant restaurant before beginning its second, and steeper decline. The deteriorating Paramount Theater on Wilkes-Barres Public Square closed and was on the verge of demolition, a fate avoided by remarkable effort of local business and community leaders, who brought it back as the F.M. Kirby Center. None of which, Im pretty sure, found its way onto the Golden Record mounted onto the Voyager I spacecraft when it was launched in August 1977. I was 20 years old and halfway through college when I took time off to open the bike shop that May. A space buff from childhood with a scrapbook of miscellaneous clippings and shelf full of old plastic models from Star Trek, the Golden Record intrigued me. The space age had come and crested with the landing on the moon eight years earlier. In 1977, America was making the switch from stunning rst-ever manned exploration, the Apollo program, ofcially ended to routine as the space shuttle program began. The Golden Record was, and still is, a literal shot in the deep dark. NASA gures that as long as we were shooting car-sized crafts to the edge of the solar system and beyond, why not add some sort of repository of human information, on the off-chance it would be found by intelligent life. It is, as NASAs website describes, a phonograph record a 12-inch gold-plated copper disk containing sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth. Carl Sagan, the man who made the cosmos understandable with talk of billions and billions of stars and who called humans star stuff, chaired the committee that decided what went on the record: 115 images, some natural sounds such as surf and wind and thunder and birds, spoken greetings in 55 languages, and musical selections from different cultures and eras. It all went in an aluminum jacket with a cartridge, needle and playing instructions. The notion borders on whimsical and now looks downright quaint: An atomic-powered spaceship sporting a phonograph record for aliens? Arent they more likely to have at least an MP3 player? But Voyager chugged along through ve presidents, the demise of the Soviet Union and the space shuttle program, the Iranian revolution and the hostage crisis. Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan became judges, then became convicted felons. Luzerne County voters rejected home rule, twice, then accepted it. The county reassessed property values for the rst time in four decades. The Hotel Sterling was closed, saved and demolished. Voters rejected an arena that was built anyway. A stadium was built in Moosic for a minor league

The new Libya, in place since leader Moammar Gadha was overthrown and killed in 2011 by rebels supported by France, Qatar, the United States and the United Kingdom, has descended into near chaos. Without commenting on the appropriateness of Russian President Vladimir V. Putin passing judgment on overall U.S. foreign policy, he noted that state of affairs in his piece in The New York Times of last week, adding Libya to the list of countries where U.S. military intervention has made life substantially worse, citing Afghanistan and Iraq as well. Circumstances in Libya are bad, and becoming worse. Largely through U.S. investigatory efforts, some of the leaders of last Septembers still shadowy attack on the American ofce in Benghazi, which killed four Americans including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, have been identied. However, given that the accused are members of a militia too powerful for the Libyan governments own security forces to confront, no arrests have taken place or seem to have any prospect of occurring. A second problem is that the countrys oil production, the mainspring of its economy, has dropped substantially. During the Gadha period it had reached a level of about 1.5 million barrels per day. Now, production has descended to as low as 150,000 barrels per day. This is due to disruptions by various militias, demanding money and provoking strikes, and from the general insecurity in the country that has made it too dangerous for foreign managers and technicians to live and work there. Given that Libyan education, health care, infrastructure maintenance and postwar reconstruction is almost entirely nanced by its oil revenues, the impact of collapsed oil production is catastrophic. It is ironic that one of the motivations of the international com-

Aftermath raises doubts about choices in Libya

Gadhafis rule had its problems, for Libya and for the world. It becomes arguably less clear by the day that things are better for both now than they were before the United States was involved in removing him. The story of Libya also provides an interesting commentary on the evolution of U.S. Syria policy.
munity including American, British, French and Italian oil companies in wanting to get rid of the Gadha regime was to open up the Libyan oil industry to modernization and resulting increased production. Instead, the removal of most of Libyas 2 percent of world production from the market has made it necessary for other producers, led by Saudi Arabia, to pick up the slack. Also ironically, one of the goals of Gadhas original 1969 revolution was to get Libyan oil production out of the hands of foreigners and into Libyan hands. The third symbolic, disastrous recent event in Libyas post-Gadha descent occurred last Wednesday, when one of the uncontrolled militias blew up the ofce of the Libyan Foreign Ministry in Benghazi, a former American Embassy ofce in the city. Gadhas rule had its problems, for Libya and for the world. It becomes arguably less clear by the day that things are better for both now than they were before the United States was involved in removing him. The story of Libya also provides an interesting commentary on the evolution of U.S. Syria policy.

team, then replaced. After 36 years, NASA recently announced it is quite sure Voyager I ofcially left the solar system. It is more than 11.5 billion with a B miles from the sun and still transmitting data that takes 17 hours to reach Earth. In fact, it was that data that showed it truly had left the suns sphere of inuence, transmitting yet one more priceless piece of news: There is an abrupt demarcation where the millionmile-per-hour solar wind gives way to cooler and denser interstellar space. It is a monumental achievement. And it doesnt really mater if aliens exist and nd the record (assuming they dont think the nuke is a bomb and counterattack before playing the record). Voyager I may serve up an epic lesson in perspective, showing how small we are in the grand scheme. But it also reminds us even small acts can have long and distant impact. That as we shape our lives we shape the world, and the reach of that world remains potentially boundless. Its a cosmic lesson worth taking into our daily decisions.

LCCC should offer options in security

The Luzerne County Community College should update its catalog and course selection in the elds of political science and history. The greatest challenge for the current generation is winning the war on terrorism, and the jobs are in homeland security. Unfortunately, LCCC is not preparing our young people for these careers. According to the current catalog, no training is offered in this area as there are no courses on the war on terrorism or on the Middle East. It is highly recommended that LCCC update its program in political science and history to reect what is going on in the world today. This will help our young

From page 1A purchased the 82-acre Huber III site in August 1994 from Glen Alden/Blue Coal Co. during a time silt was being mined. A few years ago, Dziak said, TC NE Metro Development Inc. approached Earth Conservancy about acquiring the tract for development. While those negotiations were going on, Dziak said the Earth Conservancy purchased the 87-acre Huber IV site in July 2009 for $900,000 and work to reclaim it was completed in July 2012. Since that time, TC NE Metro Development Inc. also expressed an interest in that adjoining tract and the Earth Conservancy agreed to negotiate its sale, too. Dziak said negotiations are ongoing and while there are purchase options in place, no closing date has been set, though there are indications it could close by year end or early next year. No tenants are signed on, though early plans call for construction of a 1.25 million-square-foot warehouse-industrial building and two distribution buildings, one 309,000 square feet and the other 345,000 square feet. This is a very strong project, and I am very pleased to see state funds working to bring business to NEPA, said state Sen. John Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township. Lyndsay Frank, a spokewoman for the states Department of Community and Economic Development, said the loan agreement goes through only if the land is sold. Signs on the properties have already been posted by Trammell Crow offering buildings for lease or sale with the phone number of TC NE Metro Development Inc.s Vice President Andrew Mele listed as the contact. A message left for Mele after business hours Tuesday was not immediately returned. With the pending sale of these two properties, the Earth Conservancy will have but two tracts left of the 1,600 acres of former mine land that its spent $31 million on reclaiming: One is 11 acres, the other 3 acres. Just last month, a federal bankruptcy judge permitted the sale of the Huber Breaker that will likely be demolished for scrap, ending efforts to restore the mammoth structure in Ashley. U.S. Bankruptcy Judge John J. Thomas on Aug. 22 awarded a $1.25 million bid by Paselo Logistics LLC, with an address listed on court records as 221 12th St., Philadelphia, during an auction in the federal courthouse in Wilkes-Barre. During its heyday, the Huber Breaker produced 1,000 tons of coal an hour and 7,000 tons a day, according to Ray Clarke, chairman of The Huber Breaker Preservation Society. According to the preservation societys website, the breaker was constructed in 1938 and ended operations in 1976.

From page 1A with a defense contractor, used a valid pass to get into the highly secured installation Monday morning and started ring inside a building, the FBI said. He was killed in a gun battle with police. The motive for the mass shooting the deadliest on a military installation in the U.S. since the attack at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009 was a mystery, investigators said. U.S. law enforcement ofcials told The Associated Press that there was no known connection to terrorism and that investigators have found no manifesto or other writings suggesting a political or religious motive. Alexis had been suffering a host of serious mental problems, including paranoia and a sleep disorder, and had been hearing voices in his head, according to the ofcials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the criminal investigation was still going on. He had been treated since August by Veterans Affairs, the ofcials said. The Navy had not declared him mentally unt, which would have rescinded a security clearance Alexis had from his earlier time in the Navy Reserve. The assault is likely to raise more questions about the adequacy of the background checks done on contract employees and others who are issued security clearances an issue that came up most recently with National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, an IT employee with a government contractor. Navy Secretary Ray Mabus ordered two security reviews Tuesday to look at how well the Navy protects its bases and how accurately it screens its workers. A senior defense ofcial also said Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel intends to order a review of physical security and access at all department installations worldwide. In the hours after the Navy Yard attack, a prole of Alexis began coming into focus. A Buddhist convert who had also had are-ups of rage, Alexis, a black man who grew up in New York City and whose last known address was in Fort Worth, Texas, complained about the Navy and being a victim of discrimination. He also had run-ins with the law over shootings in 2004 and 2010 in Texas and Seattle, and was ticketed for disorderly conduct after being thrown out of a metro Atlanta nightclub in 2008. Alexis bouts of insubordination, disorderly conduct and being absent from work without authorization prompted the Navy to grant him an early but honorable discharge in 2011 after nearly four years as a full-time reservist, authorities said. During his service, he repaired aircraft electrical systems at Fort Worth. In addition to those killed at the Navy Yard attack, eight people were hurt, including three who were shot and wounded, authorities said. Those three were a police ofcer and two female civilians. They were all expected to survive. The dead ranged in age from 46 to 73, ofcials said. A number of the victims were civilian employees and contractors, rather than active-duty military personnel. Those killed included: Michael Arnold, 59, a Navy veteran and avid pilot who was building a light airplane at his home; Sylvia Frasier, 53, who worked in computer security; Kathleen Gaarde, 63, a nancial analyst; and Frank Kohler, 50, a former president of the Rotary Club in Lexington Park, Md., who proudly reigned as King Oyster at the regions annual seafood festival. Mondays onslaught at a single building at the Navy Yard unfolded about 8:20 a.m. in the heart of the nations capital, less than four miles from the White House and two miles from the Capitol. It put all of Washington on edge. This is a horric tragedy, Mayor Vincent Gray said. The FBI also said Tuesday that Alexis had a shotgun when he entered the building and got a handgun inside after he started ring. Valerie Parlave, head of the FBIs eld ofce in Washington, said it doesnt have any information that he had an AR-15 assault rie in his possession.

Ex-state rep.s appeal among those heard at courthouse


WILKES-BARRE Jerry Sanduskys infamous case was not the only high-prole appeal heard by a panel of state Superior Court judges Tuesday at the Luzerne County Courthouse. Judges Jack Panella, Sally Updyke Mundy and William Platt heard appeals made by attorneys who represent former state representative Michael Veon and Hernan Torres, a Luzerne County man serving a sentence on sexual assault charges. The judges will issue rulings at a later date. Veon, 56, was sentenced to at least six years in 2010 for his role in a scheme that used tax-

payer funds for election campaigns and paying bonuses to state employees who helped those efforts. Veon is appealing a second conviction prosecutors secured earlier this year when they accused Veon and his district ofce manager of diverting state grant money from a nonprot Veon ran, Beaver Initiative for Growth, for his political benet. A judge added an additional nine months to his 6-to-14-year sentence and ordered him to pay $135,615 in restitution both issues that Veon is appealing. Veons attorneys argue that a judge made errors, including allowing prosecutors to add informa-

tion against Veon, that the Commonwealth cannot be a victim for purposes of the crimes for which Veon was convicted and that prosecutors destroyed witness interview notes. Prosecutors argue there is no basis for Veons claims and his convictions were supported by evidence in their respective cases. Torres, 41, of Tamarack Street, Hazleton, was sentenced in September 2012 to 16 to 32 years in prison for sexually assaulted a teen girl over a three-year period. Torres was found guilty after a June 2012 jury trial. Torres attorney, Caelie McCormick Sweigart, argued county Judge Joseph Sklarosky Jr.

improperly allowed a doctor to testify about statements the victim in the case made during the course of an examination in which she identied Torres as her abuser. Sweigart also argues prosecutors in the case did not properly notify Torres that they were seeking mandatory minimum sentences against him. Luzerne County Assistant District Attorney Gregory Skibitsky argued prosecutors gave Torres proper notication at the time of his conviction that he faced mandatory minimum sentences on some counts and that the doctors testimony is admissible and Sklarosky did not err in allowing the testimony at Torres trial.

From page 1A School beginning today. The three hearings Tuesday were moved to the courthouse due to the high level of media interest. A number of local and national media outlets were present in court Tuesday, as well as a others interested in the case. After Sanduskys hearing, nearly all of the courtroom cleared out, with few people remaining to hear the appeals of Veon and Torres. Dottie Sandusky there Sandusky was not at Tuesdays hearing, but his wife, Dottie, did attend. Dottie Sandusky told the media she visits her husband quite often at the State Correctional Institution at Greene in Greene County. Superior Court judges Jack Panella, Sally Updyke Mundy and William Platt are presiding over this weeks appeals. They will issue rulings at a later date. Gelman argued that three factors call for a new trial for his client: All of the victims except one delayed reporting the alleged abuse for a number of years and jurors were not instructed properly on how to consider that evidence; Sanduskys requests for continuances of the trial were denied three times and defense attorneys could not adequately prepare; The prosecutor in the case inappropriately commented on Sanduskys choice not to testify at his trial.

From page 1A Police allege two beer cans were recovered next to Patte and Gale had a beer can in his pocket and a beer can wrapped with a sweatshirt. As Gale and Patte were being escorted to cruisers, ofcers walked past beer cans and bolt cutters near the Water Street Bridge, police said. When ofcers returned to retrieve the beer and bolt cutters near the bridge, the items were missing. Police say they later found the bolt cutters and beer near Nelson, who was captured near the Fort Jenkins Bridge. Surveillance video at Patels Beverage recorded Nelson smashing a glass door window with bolt cutters, according to charges led. Nelson allegedly entered the store and removed two, 30-packs of Bud Light beer that broke open when Nelson tripped as he left out the smashed door. Video allegedly showed another man enter the store and steal an SPCA donation jar next to the cash register. The donation jar was found under the Water Street Bridge, police said. Gale and Patte were arraigned by District Judge Paul Roberts in Kingston on charges of burglary, receiving stolen property, theft and conspiracy. Nelson was charged with burglary, criminal trespass, theft, criminal conspiracy and possession of a weapon. They were all jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $25,000 bail each. Court records say Nelson pleaded guilty before District Judge Andrew Barilla on July 10 to charges of theft from a car and loitering and prowling at night led by Pittston police. He was sentenced to six months probation. Patte is facing a criminal trespass charge in county court, after Pittston police accused him of attempting to enter a womans apartment on Cherry Street on May 25, and disorderly conduct and public drunkenness charges after Pittston police allegedly found him intoxicated with two cans of Busch beer on Spring Alley on May 30. He was free on $5,000 bail and $5,000 unsecured bail, respectively, on the separate cases. Preliminary hearings on the burglary-related charges are scheduled on Sept. 25.

Norris Gelman, attorney for Jerry Sandusky, leaves the Luzerne County Courthouse rotunda after Tuesdays press conference following the Sandusky appeal hearing.

Pete G. Wilcox | The Times Leader

None (of the victims) made a prompt report . The time that elapsed (from when the incidents occurred to when they reported the alleged crimes) is striking, Gelman said. The jury in the case was not properly instructed on how to consider that evidence and that that information could have affected their verdict, he said. Gelman also argued that prosecutor Joe McGettigan made mention during his closing argument to Sandusky not testifying and getting to hear what Sandusky had to say only in an interview with TV sportscaster Bob Costas. The judge should have done something, Gelman said, noting McGettigan should not have been permitted to mention Sandusky exercised his

right. State law does not require that a defendant has to testify in his or her own defense. Gelmans other argument was that Sanduskys trial attorney, Joe Amendola, asked for continuances, which were denied, and had voluminous records to review in a short amount of time. The time between when Sandusky was charged and his case went to trial was about eight months. (Amendola) was ying blind, Gelman said of the defense attorney. Thats the worse way to try a case. States contention Chief Deputy Attorney General James Barker argued Tuesday that Amendola made no objections to the instructions given to the jury at Sanduskys trial and the

jury was clear on what evidence it was to consider. Barker also argued that a number of victims and witnesses testied about Sanduskys conduct, and that even if there were errors made, they were harmless. The mention of the Costas interview, Barker said, was in direct response to a comment made by Amendola about the interview. Barker also noted Amendola did not move for a mistrial if he felt things were done improperly and that Amendola could have had all the time in the world to prepare for Sanduskys trial, but it wouldnt have changed the outcome. How many people need to testify Jerry Sandusky was molesting little boys? Barker said.

sport is you have to immediately pick yourself right back up. I allow them maybe 12 hours of mourning period, then they have to pick themselves back up because you have an opponent on the horizon that is a good opponent. The Nittany Lions host Kent State on Saturday before getting a week off prior to the start of Big Ten play. One of the top priorities is xing some problems on defense. Penn State allowed 34 points and 507 yards of total offense to UCF. The Lions defense hadnt allowed more than 500 yards in a regular season game in more than a decade a 2001 win at Michigan State. The unit had given up 600 in the TicketCity Bowl loss to Houston at the end of the 2011 season. But what wont happen is any sort of radical change to the defense, whether it be scheme, personnel or philosophy. That much, OBrien made clear. We dont overreact, OBrien said. We have a lot of condence in our players, in our coaching ability. We know that theres improvement to make every single day. Thats why we love coaching. Thats why we cant wait to get back to practice on Mondays. Were not changing. All were going to do is try to improve the things that we do and gure it out from there. Thats just the way it goes. Thats coaching and thats what well try to do. Defense with a thud That includes keeping the low-contact thud practices where defenders dont tackle players to the ground intact. Penn State has gone the thud route since the spring to try to minimize injuries with the programs dwindling scholarship numbers.

George OLeary called it the biggest win in his 10 years coaching at Central Florida. Bill OBrien couldnt afford to put too much emphasis on the game. Twelve hours. Thats how long the Penn State coach allowed for dwellling on Saturdays disheartening loss to UCF. Losing, OBrien said Tuesday at his weekly press conference, is brutal. You do not want to lose.

No letdown for Warriors in victory

For The Times Leader

If only it hadnt been Akron. Ordinarily this would have given Kent State some hope. Fellow MAC program Akron, regarded as one of the weakest teams in the country, went into the Big House last week and was one play away from upsetting venerable Michigan. It was denitely a good game, but Ill never be rooting for Akron til the day I die, Kent State wideout Chris Humphrey said with a smile about the in-state rival. They fell short and I was happy about it. But you like to see a MAC team compete with those big guys. It gives us condence, but its not going to alter the way we prepare. regardless of the animosity, its not a bad example for the Golden Flashes to follow, coming off a game at LSU with another tough test this weekend at Penn State. Tough place. Tough environment. Tough football team, Kent State coach Paul Haynes said. Thats what weve been dealing with the past few weeks and were looking forward to it. To go into those big venues and play and play against the bigger schools, our guys look forward to it. A great challenge, but its fun, too. It would be more fun for the Flashes if they were at full strength. Haynes hasnt had it easy in his rst season as See FLASHeS | 6B

A ballgame begins in the aftermath of Washington tragedy

AP Sports Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) The vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff greeted players in the Washington Nationals clubhouse before the game, handing out blue and gold Navy caps. Manager Davey Johnson and his players held those caps from Adm. James Winnefeld over their hearts during a pregame moment of silence, disturbed only by the sound of a helicopter hovering nearby. Baseball was played in the

nations capital Tuesday, just a short walk from the site where a gunman killed 12 people at the nearby Navy Yard military instillation. It was another attempt from the world of sports to restore normalcy when things really arent normal. Theres nothing we can do to replace the lives that were lost yesterday, Nationals outelder Denard Span said. Fans arrived via the Navy Yard subway station, although they were sparse in number because Mondays game was rescheduled without

much notice. The USS Barry, anchored in the Anacostia river and the Navy Yards top tourist attraction, was easily visible from the players parking lot. The U.S. and team ags were at half-staff on the center eld concourse. Then, at 1:07 p.m. on this cool, late summer day, the rst pitch was thrown. The Nationals were back in their regular curly W caps, and soon fans were cheering an inning-ending double play by the home team. It was back to work, playing the rst game of a day-night doubleheader hast-

ily arranged after the previous nights game was postponed. It hit me hard, Span said, because this is right across the street from our stadium. Just to know that we come here every day for work, and you drive by the Navy Yard all the time. Much of the chaos that engulfed the ballpark 24 hours earlier was gone. The stadiums parking lot had been used as a staging area for relatives on Monday, when even Johnson was asked for extra ID to get See TrAGeDY | 3B

Spartans make a statement in win


KINGSTON Over the last few seasons, Wyoming Valley West was one of those teams in Division I of the Wyoming Valley Conference that competitors saw as an easy victory and a chance to improve in the standings. Not anymore. After three down seasons when the Spartans had just three wins against the top teams in the league, they appear to be back in contention. Another example came on Tuesday night when WVW shut out LakeLehman 3-0 to improve its record to 4-1 and dropped the Black Knights, last years District 2 Class 2A runnerup, to 2-2-1. More importantly, it was Valley Wests rst victory over LakeFred Adams | For The Times Leader Wyoming Valley Wests Hunter Maxwell moves the ball away from Lehman since 2006. Most of those Lehman defender Ben Brooks during Tuesday nights game in seasons, the teams didnt play each other since they were in different Kingston.

divisions. But the Black Knights had won the last four matches over the previous three seasons. Valley Wests only setback this season is a heart-breaking double-overtime loss to Dallas when the Mountaineers scored with mere seconds remaining on the clock. I think its a big statement to the league that were not to be underestimated, Spartans coach Charlie Whited said. I thought we played a very nice game against Dallas. To lose in double-overtime with one tick left on the clock my goalie catches the ball and they said he fell into the net. Ive had a really hard time with that. But the boys are really stepping it up. On Tuesday, eddie Thomas and Nick Singer continued their big seasons. Thomas scored a pair of goals making it a league-leading 10 for the season, while Singer registered his WVC Division I-leading ninth assist. Thomas got the scoring started

when Lehman goalie Collin Masters came out of the net a little bit and Thomas struck the back of the net on the breakaway giving the Spartans a 1-0 lead at the 9:25 mark of the rst half. The lead was extended around the 10-minute mark of the second half when Singer crossed a pass to Thomas from about 35 yards away. Since the two have been playing together for about 10 years, Thomas knew exactly where the ball was going to be. He then headed it into the goal for a 2-0 lead with 30:45 left in the second half. We know where each other is on the eld all the time, Thomas said. So it works out well. We normally feed each other the ball very well. The Black Knights had a few chances to get on the board. Perhaps the most notable opportunity came in the rst half when a shot sailed See SPArTANS | 6B

NANTICOKe Alyssa Kelly probably isnt your average setter. The Delaware Valley senior is a powerful hitter from the outside, an imposing gure in the middle and hovers around the 6-foot-2 mark. Dont let her size fool you because she has great touch on the ball, lofting perfect set-up shots to teammate Taylor Braunnagle, another 6-foot athlete with tremendous pop on her swing. Mix size with versatility, and you understand why the Warriors are one of the best in the Wyoming Valley Conference. Braunnagle had 19 kills, while Kelly added 11 spikes and 12 assists as Delaware Valley swept Nanticoke Area, 3-0, in a battle of top teams in the league. Game scores were 25-16, 25-10 and 25-14. The Warriors rebounded after a tough three-set loss to conference power Holy redeemer last week, while Nanticoke drops to 4-2 in the league. That was a tough loss to redeemer, but we had to focus on our own mistakes and learn from them, Braunnagle said. We had to worry about xing the errors because that hurt us in the redeemer match. Height is a tough matchup for anyone. And Delaware Valley presents that problem with ve girls near 6-foot or taller. What makes the Warriors tough is that versatility. Kelly, a strong hitter, has shown that uncanny ability to put the perfect spin on the ball for her hitters. Braunnagle, an all-state talent, is equally as talented in the back row as she is at the net. And thats not counting steady libero Jess Balcarcel and setter Isabella Wood. Thats what makes them a talented team, Nanticoke head coach Debbie Gavin said. They use all that height perfectly. One of their tallest players is their setter, and they play every position. They are all good passers. Put it together, and you have a well-rounded team. Nanticoke, with a roster of just two seniors, never backed down from the challenge. The Trojans had leads early in the rst two sets, only to see Delaware Valley ex its experience. A 6-0 run on Kellys serve in the rst stanza gave the Warriors a seven-point (125) edge. Braunnagle showed her dominance in the nal two. She dropped eight of her game-high 19 kills in the second set, and had three aces in closing out the third stanza.

We have a tough one with Tunkhannock that we need to prepare for, and we have a challenging tournament coming up in the future. Lauren Rinehimer had seven assists and two kills for Nanticoke, while sophomore Abbey Zaykoski added four kills. They ght to the end, and play as a team to the last point, Gavin said. We werent afraid of them or we werent gun shy. Delaware Valley is a talented team, and it shows. We have ve brandnew girls, and a new setter. We improve every single day. As long as we can win the games that we need to win, and can continue to improve each day, hopefully, we can start to peak when we hit the postseason.

From page 1B past an armed guard. When we got to the eld (Monday), every guy on the team was like, We need to get this game somehow cancelled just because its so close over there, right across the street, Braves third baseman Chris Johnson said. Theyre using the parking lots for stuff. They probably dont want trafc down here. And the last thing we want is cheering going on when theres people hurting right across the street. By contrast, fans saw no overt signs of extra security at the ballpark on Tuesday. Its a shame that our society has got to be worried about that kind of stuff, but I feel pretty safe here today, said Nationals fan Kevin Neale from Rockville, Md. Im glad to be at the ballpark. Sorry for all the people who had families and who had to deal with that yesterday. Its just an unfortunate situation. Introducing the moment of silence, the Nationals public address announcer said that Washingtonians and Americans remain united before asking fans to remember all those affected by yesterdays senseless act of violence.

Steelers open to all options after 0-2 start

lifeless performance that did little to hint at better days ahead with unbeaten Chicago (2-0) visiting next Sunday. Right now, weve got to keep playing, free safety Ryan Clark said. We cant panic and abandon what we have learned. We do have to shore some things up. We do have to be a lot more sound. If we dont, this is going to keep happening. The Steelers have become one of the NFLs most consistent not to mention resilient franchises by dealing with adversity on the y. Old players move on, new ones come forward. At the moment, its not happening. Pittsburghs rebuilt offensive line now playing without injured star Maurkice Pouncey is struggling. So is quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and whoever happens to line up behind him in the backeld. The Steelers are 31st in the NFL in points (19), yards rushing (37.5 per game) and yards per carry (2.4). Felix Jones took his chance at the ever-turning carousel at running back and managed 37 yards on 10 carries,

PITTSBURGH The offense cant hold onto the ball. The defense cant take it away. The receivers cant get open. The running backs cant nd any holes and the linebackers cant cause any chaos. Other than that, the rst two AP photo weeks have been just ne for the Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (7) is sacked by Bengals Pittsburgh Steelers. defensive tackle Geno Atkins (97) and defensive end Michael Pittsburgh is 0-2 for the rst Johnson (93) in the second of Mondays game in Cincinnati. time in 11 years following a 20-10 loss at Cincinnati on Monday night, another largely

all of it coming in the rst half. After halftime, Jones disappeared entirely, only touching the ball on a kickoff return. Not exactly the dedicated commitment to running the ball coach Mike Tomlin or offensive coordinator Todd Haley talked about at length during the offseason. Weve got a lot of young guys in there that were trying infuse and they need to get better in a hurry, Tomlin said. They need to increase the rate of that improvement. We havent to this point, but Im optimistic about our work moving forward.

yards receiving. Together, theyve combined for more yards (653) than nine different teams. With the type of offense we have I dont think moving the ball is an issue, McCoy said. McCoy, a 2011 All-Pro, ran for 184 yards in a win over Washington in Week 1. He was held to 53 in a loss to the Chargers on Sunday, but he caught ve passes for a career-best 114 yards. Jackson, a two-time Pro Bowl pick, followed up a 104-yard performance in the opener with 197 yards receiving vs. San Diego. The Chargers focused on stopping the run, so the Eagles turned to their air attack. Michael Vick threw for a career-high 428 yards in a 33-30 loss. Teams have to pick and choose their poison, Jackson said Tuesday. We have great balance. If they want to take something from us, we always have another option. Coming into each game, we really dont know how any team is going to play us. We watch lm and things like that, but the majority of the time when we go into a game, things kind of change up.

College GameDay 9 a.m. Saturday, ESPN ing their displeasure to ESPN and pleaded with fans to come downtown before the 2:30 p.m. game against Delaware State. Itll be more than worth it to sacrice three hours of tailgating to head downtown, support local businesses and provide the best welcome ESPN College GameDay has ever received, NDSU athletic director Gene Taylor said on the website. Besides, Taylor said, the tailgating lots will open earlier than usual. Its only the fourth time GameDay has featured an FCS matchup the last in 2008 for Hampton at Florida A&M and it comes during a week where theres a dearth of topight Football Subdivision games. The stars aligned right, Bison head coach Craig Bohl said. Fitting also said GameDay has been moving away from stadiums and tailgating as backdrops, noting the Michigan show two weeks ago was on the quad instead of near the Big House and the Clemson set eschewed the exterior of Death Valley for a huge lawn on Aug. 31. Fitting said he understands why some fans, particularly NDSU students, are worried about the nearly two-mile trip downtown. But we want to show off the school, we want to show off Fargo, we want to show off North Dakota in the absolute best light. The downtown area does that for what were looking for, Fitting said, noting ESPN is working with the school to line up transportation. Plus, the Bison play in a big brick building with a roof.


DAVE KOLPACK FARGO, N.D. ESPN is calling an audible for its popular College GameDay show by departing from its typical large-campus backdrops think Michigan and Clemson and featuring North Dakota State, owners of back-toback Football Championship Subdivision titles and an earlyseason victory over a Big 12 team. North Dakota State, in a way, is sort of the Alabama of the FCS, GameDay senior coordinating producer Lee Fitting said in explaining why the show is coming to Fargo on Saturday. Theyre two-time defending national champions, ranked No. 1 in the current poll, ten national titles for the program. The next question was, why not? The news made fans of Bison Nation ecstatic over the imminent arrival of Lee Corso and Co., but some of them are grumbling about where the shows setting up shop. Rather than broadcasting from the Fargodome, where dozens of green and yellow coach buses and other homemade party wagons gather for tailgating, ESPN will be in front of the citys historic Fargo Theatre. Fitting said his director returned from a scouting trip to the city of about 100,000 people with a single recommendation that serves up a slice of postcard-worthy Americana. It just screamed at him as the best location, Fitting said. Parts of Bison Nation think otherwise, so much so that ofcials with the schools athletic department have implored them to stop tweet-

SOUTH BEND, Ind. Notre Dame Stadium is a tough place to play again, thanks in part to Ozzy Osbournes Crazy Train. Coach Brian Kelly has made the House that Rockne Built a tough place to win after nearly a decade of mediocrity. The UP NEXT 2 2 n d - r a n k e d Michigan St. Fighting Irish at Notre Dame (2-1) enter 3:30 p.m. S a t u r d a y s Saturday, NBC game against Michigan State (3-0) on a nine-game home winning streak, the longest such streak at the school since winning 10 straight under Bob Davie in 1997-98. Kelly made some subtle changes in how the team prepares for games, such as moving the pregame Mass from the morning of the game to a day earlier. Some other small schedule changes were made to help the players, he said. Its given them the opportunity to regroup a little bit, focus in on the game and not all the other things that are going on around the campus, he said. The school helped out by trying to enliven what is known as a quiet stadium by piping in music during the game, such as Crazy Train a staple when the opponent is facing third down and playing Dropkick Murphys Im Shipping Up to Boston before the opening kickoff. The university rst started piping in music when Notre Dame played its rst home night game in 21 years, a 31-17 loss to USC two years ago. The Irish havent lost at home since, going undefeated at home last season for the time since 1998. They like that extra energy of the music, Kelly said. Michigan has the nations longest home winning streak at 17 games, while South Carolina and Georgia are tied for second at 13 and Notre Dames streak is tied for sixth longest in the nation. Kelly got off to a rough start at Notre Dame Stadium, going 6-5 in his rst 11 home games, including stunning losses to Tulsa and South Florida.

Pelini unsure about discipline

AP College Football Writer

LINCOLN, Neb. Nebraska coach Bo Pelini said Tuesday he doesnt know if hell be disciplined for his profane rant about Cornhuskers fans two years ago, adding that he expects most will continue to support him. An audio of Pelinis tirade leaked to the sports website Deadspin has Big Red fans buzzing. Pelini issued an apology in a statement Monday night and reiterated it during the Big Ten coaches teleconference on Tuesday. Chancellor Harvey Perlman has expressed disappointment in Pelini but declined to comment when asked if the coach would be disciplined. Athletic director Shawn Eichorst said he was disheartened. Pelini said he has met with Eichorst and spoken on the phone with Perlman about the audio. He did not elaborate. Pelini told reporters he was shocked by the release of the audio, though he indicated he knew a potentially damaging audio existed. Pelini said he might lose some fan support but that he was condent many would understand that his comments were made during what he thought was a private conversation before his radio show after the Huskers 34-27 win over Ohio State in October 2011. I think Ive built up enough points with our fans over the last ve years in how Ive conducted myself, how Ive run this program and what weve done with this program to earn some forgiveness for something that was made in a private setting, Pelini said. People will understand this isnt how I feel about the fans. Ive said it over and over. The Deadspin audio caught Pelini speaking off air with Husker Sports Network play-by-play man Greg Sharpe and associate athletic director for community relations Chris Anderson. Pelini criticized fans who left the stadium in the third quarter, when the Huskers trailed 27-6.

Nebraskas comeback was the biggest in program history. Pelini also used profanity while ripping two Omaha World-Herald sports writers. Pelini had dressed down one of the writers in his postgame news conference that night for writing what he thought was an overly critical column about quarterback Taylor Martinez. In the days before the Ohio State game, Pelini faced withering criticism for the Huskers performance the week before in a 31-point loss at Wisconsin. Pelini repeatedly uses expletives while talking about fair-weather fans and how the day is coming that hell be gone and that he wonders how the team will fare without him. Ive said it over and over since Ive been here that we have great fans, but Im human like anybody else, Pelini said. You say things in an emotional moment under certain circumstances and like anybody else, youre human, you make mistakes, you apologize for your mistakes and you move on. Thats all you can do in this situation. Pelini is 51-21 in six seasons at Nebraska, but he hasnt won a conference title and the Huskers have had a run of lopsided losses on the national stage. His contract runs through the 2015 season. Hes being paid $2.975 million this year.

From page 1B thud practices would come into question Tuesday after the Lions struggled badly with missed tackles on Saturday. As such, he addressed the issue right away on Tuesday. Defensively it comes down to tackling. Weve got to tackle better, OBrien said. It has nothing to do with thud. About 120 teams in the country all basically practice with thud. Very rare that teams go live anymore, especially if you look at pro football. Thats trickled down to college. It has to be about being in better football position, being aligned correctly. I thought we were aligned improperly sometimes. So those are things we can correct. We have to do better and will do better. OBrien wanted to get across that the Lions are far from unique with the way they practice. And that lowcontact during drills is not the same as no-contact. We hit. We hit in practice, OBrien said. Well have nine-on-seven today. We probably hit at Penn State more than a lot of teams that are out there. It has nothing whatsoever to do with that.

From page 1B near the net and Spartan keeper Derrick Denman ew through the air making a diving catch to keep Lehman out of the net. I always tell my keepers you have to make three big saves if you want to win a game and that was huge, Whited added. When he dove down here and made that play that was fantastic. The third goal of the game registered by the Spartans was an own goal with less than two minutes left in the game. The Spartans defense

Penn State is getting healthier, but the main concern this week remains the status of linebacker Mike Hull. The junior has been battling a sprained knee suffered early in the season-opener against Syracuse, and it is still hampering him. Hull sat out against Eastern Michigan and suited up against UCF. But the speedy linebacker still didnt look to be near 100 percent and spent much of the rst half on the sideline. I would say the one guy that is day-to-day would be Michael Hull, OBrien said. Hes sore. (Sunday), Monday, he was sore. Were going to have to watch him in practice and see how he does. Everybody else is just basically normal for the fourth week of the season. Theres no major injuries. By PAUL SOKOLOSKI Well have to keep an eye on that. Still smarting from a preseason groin injury, Regan Rome lined up to begin her nal high school girls cross country season and felt as if also did a good job contain- she limped through an earlying Lehman leading scorer season dual meet. Im just getting back now, Austin Harry, who couldnt get any good shots off. she said afterwards. Im still Masters made ve saves running with some pain. She nearly lapped the back on the night for the Black Knights with each one end of the eld. This is what it has come to being nearly as acrobatic as Denmans diving catch for Rome, who has been the Wyoming Valley Conference in the losing effort.

From page 1B a head coach. He inherited a program that was one of the countrys biggest surprises last season, winning 11 games and coming close to an unbelievable BCS berth before losing the MAC title game. Coach Darrell Hazell left for the Big Ten to take over at Purdue. His replacement was Haynes, who had been on staff at Ohio State for seven years working with Hazell before serving a year at Arkansas as defensive coordinator. Now, two of the biggest reasons for the Flashes success in 2012 are banged up as they prepare to travel to Happy Valley. Slotback Dri Archer a rst-team All-American as a junior and dynamic as any player in the Big Ten has been slowed by an ankle injury suffered in the Flashes opener. He may not be able to play Saturday. Undersized but highly productive defensive tackle Roosevelt Nix has been dealing with back issues but is expected to give it a go against the Nittany Lions. Archer is the Flashes best player by far, having led the team in rushing (1,429) and receiving (561) yards a year ago while also returning three kickoffs for touchdowns. He tried to play against the Tigers this past weekend but wasnt able to stay on the eld, nishing with just one catch for 7 yards. Dri is kind of back to where well see on Saturday how he feels, Haynes said. He played about seven plays (against LSU) and didnt feel great out there. Well assess him as the week goes on. Hes probably doubtful. Starting nose tackle Nate Terhune had surgery for a broken bula on Monday and is out. Offensive linemen Pat McShane and Jason Bitsko are also banged up.

Rome preparing for final run

rst WVC girls runner in 22 years to make the national Foot Locker Cross Country Championships when she nished fourth in the Northeast Regional while running a time of 18:14 in New York. Following a path last carved by former Meyers standout Mary Wazeter in 1980, Rome then placed 19th among 40 of the nations top high school runners at the Foot Locker national championships in San Diego. That came after Rome set the pace for Dallas 17-0 league championship season a year ago, and shes a big reason why the Mountaineers are the preseason favorites to win a team state title. Add to that Romes three District 2 titles - the rst two in Class 3A and last years Class 2A championship - and her third-place nish in last seasons PIAA Class 2A state eld, and its easy to see why Romes excited about nishing her high school career at Dallas with a ourish. Its my last season here, said Rome, who has college visits scheduled with William & Mary, Georgetown and Virginia. I just want to make it the best I can. That can be difcult when youre constantly widening the gap on the rest of the eld. Then again, Rome has been dealing with dusting the competition for so long, shes grown accustomed to mostly running alone. You kind of have to keep pushing, just kind of develop mental toughness, Rome said. Im going in thinking I want to beat a certain time. My teammates are close-ish. And you never know. There are some good girls coming up in the Valley. The Mountaineers know just what to expect from their senior standout and unques-

tioned leader, who can be found prodding, encouraging and inspiring younger teammates hoping to someday follow in her footsteps. Shes kept her head, Samuel said, shes humble about things, shes been a great team leader. Which is impressive, considering the pressure that comes from always being the one to beat while endlessly running with the lead. Honestly, I think its going to be more fun, more enjoyable, Rome said of her last run through high school. I have a great team, great coaches. I can only control what I do. Ive had a great career thus far, cant complain. I do think my times help push my other teammates. In my four years here, Ive never had a team work so hard and be so committed. I think its going to be a fun year.

Rookies make Bengalsoffense tough to stop

AP Sports Writer


CINCINNATI Two rookies are making the Bengals offense tough to stop so long as Andy Dalton keeps his cool First-round pick Tyler Eifert and second-round choice Giovani Bernard made the biggest plays during a 20-10 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night that gave Cincinnati (1-1) an early edge in the AFC North. Eifert caught a 61-yard pass against one of the NFLs stingiest defenses, setting up the rst of Bernards two touchdowns. The running back got the second one by turning a short pass into a 27-yard score. Double trouble. A lot of weapons, man, All-Pro

receiver A.J. Green said. Thats the biggest thing. Players had the day off on Tuesday before starting their short week of preparation to host Green Bay (1-1), which is coming off a 38-20 win over Washington. One focus will be to keep the momentum going on offense. The Bengals only glaring problem on Monday night was Daltons inconsistency. He was coming off one of the best games of his three-year career, completing 78.7 percent of his throws during a 24-21 opening loss in Chicago. Against the Steelers (0-2), he missed his rst three throws, twice overshooting an open receiver. Dalton was so revved up for the game that his aim was way off. I had a lot of adrenalin going, and the balls were sailing a little high on me at

the beginning of the game, Dalton said. I came back and played a lot better in the second half, and we did what it took to win the game. Dalton nished 25 of 45 for 280 yards with the one touchdown to Bernard and no interceptions. His passer rating of 81.7 was the best in his ve career games against the Steelers, who usually get him out of sync with their blitzes. And it wasnt just the passing. The Bengals also ran for 127 yards and nished with 407 total yards. Theyre the rst team to get 400 yards on the Steelers in a non-overtime game since New England had 453 yards during a 39-26 victory on Nov. 14, 2010, at Heinz Field, according to STATS LLC. Last year, Dallas had 415 yards in a 27-24 overtime victory at Cowboys Stadium. What the Bengals did on Monday

night was rare. If you can run the ball well against this team, you can run the ball well against a lot of people, left tackle Andrew Whitworth said. So to be able to run the ball well, it says something about the teams potential. Even in years when weve run the ball really well, weve had a tough time running it against them. Its denitely exciting. We have a young nucleus thats back and has a (promising) gure ahead of it. Whitworth returned after missing much of training camp and the season opener with knee problems. Although Dalton repeatedly got hit while throwing, he wasnt sacked. And the line provided plenty of openings in the fourth quarter, when BenJarvus GreenEllis carried 13 times and the Bengals drained the clock.

Rookie Giovani Bernard (25) has given the Bengals offense an added dimension after scoring two touchdowns Monday against the Steelers.

Weve got a good group, Whitworth said. And if we can continue to do things right, we can be really good.

Wrestler Burroughs riding big win streak

Associated Press

Fed court nixes NJ appeal in sports betting case

The Associated Press

PABLO GORONDI BUDAPEST, Hungary Defending champion and 2012 Olympic goldmedalist Jordan Burroughs brings a 60-match winning streak to the wrestling world championships in Budapest. The American will face Gamid Dzhalilov of Tajikistan in Wednesdays rst round in the 163pound freestyle category and could meet former world junior champion Kakhaber Khubezhty of Russia in the second round. Burroughs said the changes made this year to the scoring system one of the key modications credited with helping the sport regain its place at the Olympics until at least 2024 favor his assertive style. Im an aggressive, offensive wrestler, Burroughs said before his weigh-in Tuesday. It got easier for me. Im scoring twice as many points as I was. Among the changes, the matches feature cumulative scoring and two, three-minute rounds. Before, there were separate scores in each of three, two-minute periods. Also, more points are awarded for attacking moves, there is no overtime period and a match can end with time still on the clock if one of the wrestlers achieves a seven-point advantage. Wrestling was cut from the list of Olympic core sports in February. However, it was voted back into the games on Sept. 8 by the International Olympic Committee at a meeting in Buenos Aires and was guaranteed a spot in 2020 and 2024, but not beyond. A decision on its place after 2024 is expected around 2017. Leadership changes at the international wrestling federation FILA, more wrestlers in executive positions and a guaranteed place for female ofcials in the sports governing body are also expected to improve the sport.

New faces, new places mark start of NFL season

AP Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Alex Smith is still winning in red. Hes just doing it for the Chiefs these days. Mike Wallace is nally happy in Miami, Anquan Boldin is making everyone happy in San Francisco, and thats just the start of the new faces in new places making a splash this season. Wes Welker went from hauling in passes from Tom Brady in New England to doing the same from Peyton Manning in Denver howd he get so lucky? Steven Jacksons legs are churning in Atlanta, Darrelle Revis is defending passes in Tampa Bay and Elvis Dumervil is putting heat on quarterbacks for Baltimore after a bizarre end to his time with the Broncos. I feel amazing, said Dumervil, who actually agreed to a restructured contract to remain in the AFC West, only for the paper work to arrive late at the league ofce. Denver was forced to release Dumervil to avoid having the $12 million he was set to make this season become guaranteed. Dumervil still considered staying in Denver, but ultimately signed with the Ravens. Its always nice to get a guy in there who can bring new ideas to you and new ways of doing things and Elvis has certainly done that, Baltimore coach John Harbaugh

said. Hes latched on with the things were doing, and its been a great mesh. Its been a happy marriage for a lot of other high-prole players, too. After Smith was benched in favor of Colin Kaepernick during San Franciscos NFC championship run last year, he began looking elsewhere to play this season. The 49ers worked a trade in February to send him to Kansas City, and now Smith is running the offense for new coach Andy Reid. Hes doing it well, too. Smith has thrown four touchdown passes without an interception in beating Jacksonville and Dallas, matching the Chiefs entire win total from last season. From about mid-season last year I was thinking about where my next opportunity was potentially going to come, Smith said, and when this presented itself, I jumped at it. He wasnt alone in jumping on the Chiefs bandwagon. Reid climbed aboard after 14 seasons leading the Eagles, and veteran defensive backs Sean Smith and Dunta Robinson were signed in free agency. Together, theyve helped turn around a franchise that heads to Philadelphia on Thursday night seeking its second 3-0 start in a decade. The one neat thing about the business is everybody has a personality, Reid said of his team, more than half of which is new this year.

Thats the way it is in life. So if youre going to get that full player, they need to express themselves, I think. Thats what we do. Wallace has had no qualms with expressing himself in Miami. The former Steelers wide receiver was miffed that he caught only one pass in the opener, but came back to match a career high with nine catches against the Colts on Sunday. He was acquired to give Miami a badly needed deep threat, and so far hes helped the Dolphins to a 2-0 start. Hes a guy thats really intellectual when it comes to football, fellow wide receiver Brian Hartline said. Probably doesnt get a whole lot of credit for it, but he really understands the game, wants to learn more about the game and like I said, has a rare skill set. Sounds like many of the same qualities Boldin has brought to San Francisco. The 49ers acquired him from the Ravens for a sixth-round pick, and hes helped them overcome the loss of Michael Crabtree to a torn Achilles tendon. Boldin was shut down last week by Seattle, but had 13 catches for 208 yards and a touchdown in a Week 1 win over the Packers. Its my job to catch the ball. And anytime (Kaepernick) throws the ball my way, Im going to make sure to catch it, Boldin said. For me, its a business. I come out to do my job.

NEWARK, N.J. A federal appeals court dealt another blow to New Jerseys efforts to legalize sports gambling Tuesday, upholding a ruling that the states betting law conicts with federal law and shouldnt be implemented. The case was heard by a three-judge panel at the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, and the state could seek to have the case re-heard by the full appeals court. But Tuesdays ruling more likely means New Jerseys last chance to legalize sports gambling is to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the case. In March, U.S. District Judge Michael Shipp ruled that some of the questions raised in the case were novel, but he suggested the best way to change the U.S. law was to get Congress to repeal or amend the 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act. Tuesdays appellate ruling, by a 2-1 majority, reinforced Shipps view. We are cognizant that certain questions related to this case whether gambling on sporting events is harmful to the games integrity and whether states should be permitted to license and prot from the activity engender strong views, judges wrote. But we are not asked to judge the wisdom of PASPA or of New Jerseys law, or of the desirability of the activities they seek to regulate. We speak only to the legality of these measures as a matter of constitutional law New Jerseys sports wagering law conicts with PASPA and, under our Constitution, must yield. In a dissenting opinion, Judge Thomas Vanaskie agreed substantially with his two colleagues but differed in his interpretation of PASPA, a law that allowed state-sanctioned sports gambling only in Nevada and three other states. PASPA attempts to implement federal policy by telling the states that they may not regulate an

otherwise unregulated activity, Vanaskie wrote. The Constitution affords Congress no such power. Gov. Chris Christies spokesman on Tuesday reiterated that the administration would take the case to the Supreme Court if necessary. In the dissent, the judge agrees with New Jerseys central argument that the law is unconstitutional since it prevents sports betting in New Jersey against the wishes of its own elected ofcials and citizens, spokesman Colin Reed said in an email. This makes the issue all the more appropriate to be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. Two years ago, the people of New Jersey voted overwhelmingly to bring sports betting to New Jersey, and the governor agrees with his constituents. Theres no reason it should be limited to only a handful of states. Its a fundamental issue of fairness. Voters passed a sports betting referendum in 2011, and last year New Jersey enacted a law that limited bets to the Atlantic City casinos and the states horse racing tracks. Bets wouldnt be taken on games involving New Jersey colleges or college games played in the state. Christie said at the time that he hoped to grant sports betting licenses by early this year, but those plans were put on hold. The NFL, NBA, NHL, Major League Baseball and the NCAA sued the state last year and claimed the betting law would harm the integrity of their games. The NCAA moved several of its championship events out of New Jersey, though it later relented. Attorneys for the state had attacked PASPA on several constitutional levels. They argued the law unfairly grandfathered Nevada, Oregon, Montana and Delaware, which each had some form of sports gambling at the time, and said the law violated state sovereignty and equal protection provisions and trampled the authority of state legislatures under the 10th Amendment.

Builders confident but still worried

U.S. homebuilders condence in the housing market held this month at its highest level in nearly eight years. But builders are starting to worry that sales may slow if mortgage rates continue to rise. The National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo builder sentiment index released Tuesday registered at 58 this month. Thats unchanged from August, which was revised down from an initial reading of 59. Readings above 50 indicate more builders view sales conditions as good, rather than poor. In the latest survey, which included 264 respondents, a measure of current sales conditions was unchanged, while a gauge of trafc by prospective buyers rose one point. But builders outlook for single-family home sales over the next six months fell three points. Mortgage rates have risen more than a full percentage point since May, when Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke rst indicated the Fed could slow its $85 billion a month in bond buying this year.

Survey: Sluggish economic recovery to persist

CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER WASHINGTON A robust recovery for the global economy remains well out of reach. Thats the view that emerges from a survey of economists just as the Federal Reserve is expected this week to reduce its stimulus for the U.S. economy. Europe has nally emerged from recession. Japan is growing after two decades of stagnation. And the United States is trudging ahead. Yet an Associated Press survey of more than two dozen economists suggests that global growth will remain below full health this year and next. Persistently weak growth would make it harder to resolve many of the worlds biggest economic challenges. They include historically high unemployment in Europe, sluggish spending by consumers and businesses in the United States, heavy government debts in Europe and Japan and unstable economies in some emerging nations. The economists think the 17 nations that use the euro will grow at an annual rate barely above 1 percent in the second half of 2013 and in 2014. From April through June, the eurozone eked out its rst quarterly growth after 18 months of contraction a 1.2 percent annual rate. No acceleration is foreseen in the next year and a half. The United States and Japan are expected to fare only slightly better. The economists think the U.S. economy will grow at a 2.3 percent annual rate in the second half of 2013 and 2.6 percent in 2014. Japan is expected to grow 2.2 percent next year far weaker than its 3.8 percent growth rate from April through June. Normally, a healthy expansion in advanced economies produces annual growth of 3 percent or better. The United States expanded at an average pace of 3.25 percent from 1976 through 2007. But it hasnt grown at a 3 percent rate or faster since 2005. The AP survey collected the views of private, corporate and academic economists on a range of issues. Among their views: The Fed will start reducing its $85 billion in monthly bond purchases after its latest policy meeting ends today. The initial cut in purchases will be small $10 billion a month. The Feds bond purchases have been intended to keep long-term loan rates low to induce people to borrow and spend. Though U.S. hiring and growth remain soft, some Fed ofcials dont think the bond purchases are doing much good anymore. The biggest obstacles to faster U.S. growth vary from tepid job and pay growth to the lingering squeeze from a Social Security tax increase and government spending cuts to doubts about whether Congress will raise the governments borrowing cap. If the cap isnt raised, the United States could default on its debt by mid-October. That would risk a downgrade of U.S. credit. The U.S. unemployment rate wont return to a range associated with a healthy economy roughly 5 percent to 6 percent before 2015 and perhaps not until 2016 or later. The rate is now 7.3 percent. Congress should not increase the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour. Some economists warn that a higher minimum wage could lead some employers to hold back on hiring lower-wage workers. That could escalate unemployment, they say.

22 firms paying $14.4M to feds

Job seekers put on best face


Twenty-two investment rms are paying a total of $14.4 million to settle federal charges of improperly short-selling certain stocks and buying them soon after in public offerings. The Securities and Exchange Commission announced the settlements Tuesday. One of the best-known is the hedge fund D.E. Shaw & Co., which agreed to pay $465,986 in restitution plus interest and a $201,506 penalty. Short-selling is a bet that a stock will lose value. Short-sellers borrow shares and agree to sell them in hopes that the share price will fall. They can then buy the shares at a lower price, return them to the lender and pocket the difference. SEC rules prohibit short-selling a stock in the ve business days before a public offering and then buying that stock in the offering.

Microsoft OKs dividend increase

Microsoft said Tuesday that its board approved a 22 percent increase in the companys quarterly dividend to 28 cents along with a new $40 billion stock buyback program. The new dividend represents an increase of 5 cents over the worlds largest software companys previous dividend. It will be paid on Dec. 12 to shareholders of record as of Nov. 21. The increase in the dividend will cost Microsoft an extra $416 million per quarter.

WILKES-BARRE Job seekers can file dozens of applications online and mail in the same amount of resumes, but a career fair offers something that those other two cannot: face-to-face interaction. You have to get an idea of their character, thats something you cant portray over the Internet, said Megan Erwine, the director of marketing for Erwine Home Health and Hospice Inc., of Kingston. Erwine was among the representatives from two dozen businesses, temp agencies or other organizations on hand Tuesday for the 18th annual Times Leader Job Fair at the 109th Field Artillery Armory on Market Street. The event attracted hundreds of job seekers, including Jeffery Kairo of Forty Fort. Kairo, a Shavertown native, came dressed in a shirt and tie and said it was his first job fair in more than a dozen years. The 43-year-old had worked the past 11 years in Stevensville, Md., at the Paul Reed Smith Guitar production facility. But cuts in hours led him to quit that job and move back this summer to his native Luzerne County, where he accepted a position at the warehouse near Hazleton, he said. But while he enjoys his

job, the commute is a bit much and he was hoping to land a job closer to his Forty Fort home. The ability to sell himself in person was an opportunity he could not pass up. Filling out an application takes the personal profile out of the whole picture, said Kairo. Face to face, I consider to be better. Erwine said that in cer-

tain positions, especially home health care, a certain personality sometimes trumps a long resume. It takes a special kind of personality, and thats something you can pick up when face to face, Erwine said. But sometimes resumes do work. Ty Simms, of WilkesBarre, says he has applied for his past three jobs

online and was called in for interviews for all three. Unfortunately, each job ended up being short term or not to his liking, he said, so he decided to bring a stack of resumes to the job fair Tuesday, hoping his stay in the unemployment line will be short-lived. Fingers crossed, said Simms, Ill be working by October.

Coming off of a weak backto-school shopping period, a research rm expects holiday sales growth will be slower this year during the crucial holiday season. Shoppers are also expected to visit fewer stores as they research purchases online. Retail revenue in November and December should rise 2.4 percent during the biggest shopping period of the year, Chicago-based research rm ShopperTrak said Tuesday. That compares with a 3 percent increase in 2012 from 2011. Although the economy continues to recover slowly, consumers remain cautious about spending and are not ready to splurge, said ShopperTrak founder Bill Martin. While the job picture has been improving in the U.S. and the turnaround in the housing market is gaining traction, the improvements have not been enough to sustain higher levels of spending for most Americans. Most continue to juggle tepid wage gains with a higher cost of living. Revenue at stores opened at least a year a measure of a retailers health rose 3.6 percent in August, according to a tally of 10 retailers by the International Council of Shopping Centers.

From Friday to Friday, youre invited to dine downtown


Sample the city


Wednesday, September 18, 2013 PAGE 1C

Paul Cozza used pumpkin, pecan, cranberry and sweet spices to enhance this biscotti he prepared at the Westmoreland Club in Wilkes-Barre, where he is the pastry chef.

Did you know that Boscovs Restaurant, down in the basement of the Wilkes-Barre department store, can whip up an omelet filled with spinach, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese? Or that the IBOP Coffee Company around the corner uses organic milk and cocoa? And the S&W Restaurant on North Main Street cuts potatoes for its famous hash-browns by hand? Those are just a few of the culinary delights you might discover for yourself if you visit local eateries during the firstever Downtown Wilkes-Barre Restaurant Week, which begins Friday and lasts through Sept. 27. Eighteen restaurants signed up, organizer John Maday from the Downtown Wilkes-Barre Business Association said. And theyre all doing something different. Discounts and specials are the order of the Friday-to-Friday week, from Froyo Manias offer to sell you all the yogurt, complete with toppings, you can fit into an 8-ounce container for $3 to Mimmos Pizzas promise that a large pie with one topping will be $10 between 2 and 6 p.m. If upscale dining is more to your liking, several fine-cuisine restaurants in downtown Wilkes-Barre have put together prix-fixe dinner menus, which allow the diner to chose several courses for one price, typically $30. We tried to include a little bit of everything beef, fish, veal and chicken, Cafe Toscana manager Marcello Ahmeti said, pointing to a prix-fixe dinner menu that offers appetizers, soup or salad, entrees and dessert. Ahmeti agreed to have a chef prepare several dishes from the menu for newspaper photographs and they were beautiful. Flat iron steak, crusted with roasted garlic and peppercorns, was sliced and fanned out over a plate with creamy risotto and mushrooms. Gamberi Scampi showcased seven plump shrimp likewise artfully arranged around linguine. We cook the pasta in water until its al dente, Ahmeti said. Then we finish cooking it in the sauce, for extra flavor. A Mista Verdi salad of fresh baby greens represented the second course, and Cafe Toscanas signature olive-oil sauce was there for bread dipping. I think the sun-dried tomatoes are the most important ingredient,

Flavors of fall mingle well in fresh biscotti

The word biscotti comes from a medieval Latin word that can be translated as twice-baked and was used to describe baked goods that did go through two periods of baking. That removed quite a bit of moisture and allowed them to be stored for long periods of time. Such long-lasting foods were useful when you were packing provisions for a long journey. Some people even believed they would be edible for centuries. But in modern times, you can expect your friends and family will enjoy fresh-baked biscotti so much, they will eat it quickly, especially when you combine the wonderful avors of autumn. This recipe celebrates autumn by using pumpkin, cranberries and pecans as well as a touch of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and allspice all of which will combine for a heavenly aroma in your kitchen. PUMPKIN PECAN Paul Cozza CRANBERRY BISCOTTI Yield: 2 dozen cookies Ingredients: 5 and 1/4 ounces unsalted butter, softened 8 ounces brown sugar 3 large eggs 1 cup pumpkin puree 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon ginger 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves 1/4 teaspoon allspice 1/2 tablespoon baking powder 1 and 1/4 pounds (about 4.5 to 5 cups) all-purpose our 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup pecans, toasted 1 cup dried cranberries Method: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and uffy. Scrape down the bowl and mix in the eggs and pumpkin puree. Coarsely chop the pecans and incorporate into the mixture. In 2 or 3 additions, add the dry ingredients slowly, scraping the sides of the mixing bowl after each addition. Form the dough into a log about the length of the cookie sheet and about 3 inches wide. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Pull the log out of the oven and turn it down to 300 degrees F. Allow the log to cool slightly. Slice the log into 1/4 inch and line up on the same sheet on which you baked the log. Bake the cookies again for about 8 to 12 minutes or until slightly golden on the cut side and crisp. Cool completely and store in an airtight container for about two weeks.

Some of the choices diners may select from the prix-fixe menu Cafe Toscana will offer during Restaurant Week include, clockwise from bottom left: Mozzarella Caprese, Cozze Posilipo, fresh bread, Mista Verde, Gamberi Scampi and Flat Iron Steak.

Hispanic and Asian flavors combine for quick chili

Ahmeti said with a twinkle in his eye, vowing to reveal no more. For sample appetizers, he showed us Cozze Posilipo (Prince Edward Island mussels served in a light marinara) and Mozzarella Caprese (fresh mozzarella cheese served with fresh tomato and deep-red, velvetysmooth slices of roasted red pepper that seemed to melt in your mouth.) OK, its time to admit we couldnt resist the food when Ahmeti invited us to sample. It was wonderful, and we vow to return. Maday hopes many diners will come away feeling equally enthusiastic about Restaurant Week, citing it as a chance for new clientele as well as loyal customers to mix and match the many styles of food that are available. Are you hungry for a half rack of St. Louis-style ribs or a pulled-pork sandwich? Theyre among the specials at Maers BBQ on South Main. Do beer-battered haddock, blackened salmon, filet mignon and shepherds pie sound appealing? You can find that variety down the street, at Bart and Urbys. Ahi tuna fresh from Hawaii, wasabi-encrusted filet mignon and a house salad boasting pineapple and coconut are just a few of the offerings at Oyster, inside the Genetti Best Western complex on West Market Street, where the dessert section of the prix-fixe menu includes coconut pie, spumoni or a chocolate pagoda.

Cafe Toscana manager Marcello Ahmeti presents his flat iron steak and Mista Verde salad.

There will be prix-fixe hibachi specials and sushi specials at Katana in the Midtown Village on South Main Street, and if you take a friend to Rodanos on Public Square, youll find spe-

cial deals involving two entrees at lunch time and dinner. By the way, if you thought the Anthracite Newsstand was just See DINING | 4C

A robust chili thats on the table in just 30 minutes? Thanks to a blending of Hispanic and Asian avors, its easy. I started with the base of an average turkey chili some onions, jalapenos, garlic, ground turkey and white beans. Nothing unexpected there. But all those basics get a serious avor boost from an unexpected ingredient

sweet white miso. Its the same stuff used in the soup you slurp at the sushi bar. Miso is an underappreciated ingredient. It effortlessly amps the savory-salty avor of anything it touches, particularly in wet rubs and other sauces for meat. In this recipe, it replicates in just minutes a depth of avor youd normally need a long simmer to attain. And dont be put off by the sweet in the

name. Sweet white miso isnt really sweet, just milder than darker miso. The chili is nished with corn kernels cut from the cob and just barely heated, preserving their fresh avor and texture. And to tie everything together, the chili is nished with cilantro and lime juice. TURKEY AND CORN CHILI WITH SWEET WHITE MISO Start to nish: 30 min-

utes Servings: 8 2 tablespoons canola oil 1 large yellow onion, diced 1 to 2 jalapeno chilies, nely chopped (for less heat, discard the inner ribs and seeds) 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 teaspoon ground cumin 2 1/2 pounds (40 ounces) lean ground turkey 15-ounce can white kidney or navy beans,

drained 1 quart low-sodium chicken broth 1/2 cup sweet white miso 6 ears corn, husks and silk removed (or 3 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed) Salt and ground black pepper 2 limes, cut into wedges, to serve Chopped fresh cilantro, to serve See CHILI| 4C

Turkey and corn chili with sweet white miso is quick and easy for fall.

PENNSYLVANIA - Todays announcement by CompTek has the Free TV Hotlines ringing off the hook. Thats because Wilkes-Barre area residents who find their zip code listed in todays publication are getting Free TV channels thanks to an amazing razor-thin invention called Clear-Cast. Wilkes-Barre area residents who call the Toll Free Hotlines before the 48-hour order deadline to get Clear-Cast can pull in Free TV channels with crystal clear digital picture and no monthly bills. This announcement is being so widely advertised because a U.S. Federal law makes TV broadcasters transmit their signals in digital format, which allows everyone to receive these over-the-air digital signals for free with no monthly bills. Heres how it works. Clear-Cast, the sleek micro antenna device with advanced technology links up directly to pull in the Free TV signals being broadcast in your area with crystal clear digital picture and no monthly bills. Clear-Cast was invented by a renowned NASA Space Technology Hall of Fame scientist who currently holds 23 U.S. Govt issued patents. For the past 20 years, he has specialized in developing antenna systems for NASA, Motorola, XM Satellite Radio and companies around the world. His latest patent-pending invention, ClearCast, is a sleek micro antenna device engineered to pull in the Free TV signals through advanced technology with no cable, satellite or internet connection and no monthly bills. Clear-Cast is being released to the general public because we just dont think people should keep paying for TV when they can get it for free, said Conrad Miller, Manager of Operations at CompTek. Theres never a monthly bill to pay and all the channels you get with Clear-Cast are absolutely free. So you see, Clear-Cast is not like cable or satellite. It was engineered to access solely the over-the-air signals that include all the top rated national and regional networks, like ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, CW and about 90% of the most watched TV shows like Americas Got Talent, NCIS, 60 Minutes, American Idol, The Big Bang Theory, The Bachelorette, Person of Interest, CSI, The Mentalist, Two and a Half Men, Sunday Night Football plus news, weather and more all for free with no monthly bills, Miller said. Thats why Clear-Cast is such a great alternative for everyone who is sick and tired of paying expensive cable and satellite bills every month, he said. People who get Clear-Cast will say it feels like getting an extra paycheck every month. You see, with Clear-Cast youll receive free over-the-air broadcast channels with crystal clear digital picture, not the cable or satellite only channels. So being able to eliminate those channels puts all the money you were spending back in your pocket every month, Miller said. And heres the best part. The sleek micro antenna device called Clear-Cast is so technically advanced it pulls in even more of the channels being broadcast in your area for Free with no monthly bills. That way you can channel surf through the favorite TV shows. The number of shows and channels youll get depends on where you live. People living in large metropolitan areas may get up to 53 static-free channels, while people in outlying areas will get less. That means even if youre in a rural area that just pulls in NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX and PBS broadcasts theres hundreds of shows each year to watch for free. Consumers report that the crystal clear picture quality with Clear-Cast is the best theyve ever seen. Thats because you get virtually all pure uncompressed signals direct from the broadcasters for free. Clear-Cast was engineered to link up directly like a huge outdoor directional antenna but in a lightweight, slim-line package. Its sturdy copper alloy and polymer construction will most likely far outlast your TV. It just couldnt be any easier to get Free over-the-air digital TV shows with Clear-Cast. Simply plug it into your TV, place Clear-Cast on a window pane and run autoscan. It works on virtually any model TV and is easily hidden out of sight behind a curtain or window treatment. Thousands of Wilkes-Barre area residents are expected to call to get Clear-Cast because it just doesnt make any sense to keep paying for TV when you can get hundreds of shows absolutely free.

From page 1C a place to buy a newspaper or a lottery ticket, please note they will be serving breakfast sandwiches all day, along with soups and burgers, homemade brownies and even french-fried green beans. And, youll nd more than gyros at King of Kings Gyros, where you also might choose some falafel (a spicy bean patty fried, Middle Eastern style) or even all-American grilled cheese. A few restaurants are offering a prix-xe lunch menu during Restaurant Week. Among them, Bottlenecks on South Main Street is offering several choices of paninis, from ham-and-cheese to Cuban. Senunas Bar & Grill on North Main is offering soup with salad or sandwich, and if youd like to try Maryland Crab Fries, topped with bacon, green onions, crab meat and cheddar cheese, youll nd them here. Three Guys Pizza, on North Main, meanwhile, will discount hoagies, regular and Sicilian pizza during Restaurant Week, and Petes Place on East South Street, will offer several of its Middle Eastern specialties, including the eggplantbased dip baba ghanouji as well as kibbi (a patty of meat and bulgur wheat), hummus (a chickpea dish) and tabouli (a salad of parsley and cracked bulgur wheat.) You can eat your way around the world during restaurant week, Maday said, lamenting the fact that, while the owners of El Rincon Latino and Southside Bistro wanted to be part of Restaurant Week, neither one will be open in their new locations in time. El Rincon Latino will soon bring its Mexican food to Public Square, and the Southside Bistro will offer French-style food at South Main and East Ross streets. Still, Maday is pleased to have 18 restaurants participating in the inaugural event, and he reminds restaurant-goers that the opening night coincides with the Third Friday Artwalk in downtown Wilkes-Barre, so you should be able to walk around and visit some downtown art galleries before or after dinner.

High school freshman can conquer shyness by reaching out to others

dating soon. The problem is Ive never had a close friend who was a boy, and the idea isnt natural to me. How can I ask a boy out if I dont even grasp the concept of being friends with one? Im frustrated over this, especially because I really like one particular guy. The only advice I have been given is, Get over your fear and just TALK to him. This isnt very helpful to me. I want to know how to get over my Dear Abby: Im a 14-year-old girl who just started high school. I started to notice boys when I was in middle school, and Id like to start

ADVICE fear! Abby, your thoughts would be appreciated. Cant Find the Nerve in Ohio
Dear Cant Find the Nerve: Ill gladly share some thoughts. The first is I hope you realize how many girls and guys your age feel EXACTLY the same way you do. Social skills dont come naturally to everyone but they can be learned. And like any learned skill, they take practice. The surest cure for shyness which is the fear you are experiencing is to forget about yourself

and concentrate on the other person. Smile and introduce yourself if the guy doesnt know you. If you share a class with him or know an activity hes involved in, ask a question about it. Hes not good at sports? Not musical? Ask him about a class assignment. You dont have to be brilliant or witty. Try leading off with a friendly remark or a compliment. (Nice shirt, cellphone, etc.) I know very few people who dont appreciate a compliment. Overcoming shyness takes practice, so dont go after the boy you really like at first. Make a point of smiling and saying hello to everyone. Its friendly, its welcoming. Keep in mind that the majority of people have the same insecurities you do. Many of them will respond

positively because they appreciate being noticed. Thats how you make friends of both genders. I have a booklet that offers even more suggestions. The title is How to Be Popular, and it contains hints for polishing social skills for people of all ages. It can be ordered by sending your name and address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to Dear Abby Popularity Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Remember, you dont have to be the prettiest or smartest girl in school. But you CAN be one of the nicest. Show an interest in others. Be honest but always tactful. Cultivate your own interests so you will have something to talk about with others.

If there are clubs at your school, join the ones that interest you. Its another way of making friends of both sexes. Most young people go out in groups these days. So, if you and some friends plan to do something (and after you have been friendly and let the young man you like notice you), smile and ask if hed like to come along. If hes shy, its a way of making HIM feel less selfconscious, too. Good luck!
To receive a collection of Abbys most memorable and most frequently requested poems and essays, send a business-sized, selfaddressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abbys Keepers, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). Of course you can be mad at someone and still love that person, but emotionally immature people dont understand this as well as others do. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Take those things that you are obligated to do off your list. Obligation just isnt a strong enough motivator to get you to take action now. Youll be too busy addressing that which is urgent or fascinating. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If your focus seems fuzzy or your attitude is at half-mast, dont go forward. Go for total engagement or none at all. A determined effort is needed if you are to avoid wasting your time. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Someone is keeping you in the dark because he or she is afraid of your possible reaction. When theres little else to go on, let your keen instinct take over. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You dont have to do anything you dont want to do, as long as you are strong enough to believe it and you certainly are! Youll get the chance to show your backbone. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you realize that someone is rating you on your looks or status rather than on their experience of you as a person, you are being objectified. Steer people to the real you, not the you on paper. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your physical travels mirror your mental travels. Your thoughts will take you all over the map. Every time you land someplace new, recognize those thoughts that are responsible for the journey. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Love is the magic ingredient of success. If you apply skill, money and talent to a project but do not apply love, you wont find as much success as you would if you applied nothing more than love. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You can only come at a relationship from your own point of view, but at least you recognize that others think differently. That you care enough to ask about their experience of things will matter. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Dont cheat yourself! Being generous is one thing, but giving like you dont even exist will ultimately be a detriment to all. Claim what you need, and hold on to it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Nothing will be written in stone today. You may choose and then change your mind, speak and then retract, claim and then trade your claim for another. Stay versatile. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Utterly narcissistic people dont see themselves as lacking empathy. Your pointing it out will make no difference. Navigate the interaction by accepting the limitations of this type. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Sept. 18). Your desire for special family bonding will be fulfilled now and at many points throughout the year. At work, you run a fair operation and earn the trust of clients and partners in October. November brings an expansion. January features a fun twist. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 2, 11, 22 and 19.
