The Sanctuary is linked to former attorney, 2 past county judges in corruption scandal


NAIROBI, Kenya Helicopters circling overhead, Kenyas military launched a major operation Sunday at an upscale Nairobi mall and said it had rescued most of the hostages being held captive by al-Qaida-linked militants during a two-day standoff that killed at least 68 people and injured 175. The military assault began shortly before sundown, with one helicopter skimming very

close to the roof of the shopping complex as a loud explosion rang out, far larger than any previous grenade blast or gunre volley. Kenyan police said on Twitter that security forces had launched a MAJOR assault to end the bloody siege. This will end tonight. Our forces will prevail. Kenyans are standing rm against aggression, and we will win, Kenyas National Disaster Operation Centre said on Twitter. The Kenya Defense Forces later said it had rescued most hostages and had taken

control of most of the mall, though it did not provide details. Many of the rescued hostages mostly adults were suffering from dehydration, Col. Cyrus Oguna, a military spokesman, told The Associated Press. He refused to say how many hostages were rescued or how many were still being held. He said some of the attackers had most probably been killed in the operation. See RAID | 8A

A failed Wright Township townhouse development linked to former attorney Robert Powell and two past judges involved in a public corruption scandal is again on Luzerne Countys back-tax auction listing. The 37-acre tract along Church Road is owned by W-Cat Inc., a company set up by Powell and former county prothonotary Jill Moran. Powell was released from a Florida halfway house in April after completing an 18-month prison sentence for failing to report a crime relating to his kickback payments to the two judges, Mark Ciavarella and Michael T. Conahan. Both ex-judges are both in Powell prison. First National Community Bank of Dunmore has been in See DEvELOPMENT | 8A

Wilkes U. receives grant to fight student alcohol abuse

PLCB money is aimed at preventing underage and dangerous drinking

MARVEL AT THE RECOVERY: When last we left Special Agent Phil Coulson, he was being skewered with an Asgardian spear by an over-acting Norse demigod.

WILKES-BARRE Despite recent statistics that show alcohol-related incidents are down on campus, Wilkes University wants

to be more pro-active in preventing underage alcohol abuse. Wilkes recently received a $31,582 grant from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to help prevent underage and dangerous alcohol use. Wilkes received one of 20 college and university grants to develop strategies to reduce underage and dangerous alcohol use, including enforcement efforts. Recent surveys have indicated that Wilkes

ranks below the national average in alcohol consumption among first-year students. Allen said targeting freshmen appears to be effective. The grant application noted: From 2008 to 2011 the percentage of moderate and high risk drinkers among first-year students dropped from 40 percent to 29 percent. The national average among firstyear students is 44 percent, Allen said. The number of alcohol-related student conduct offenses decreased from 107 in

2009 to 65 in 2011. Freshman-to-sophomore retention rates improved from 77.9 percent in 2007 to more than 82 percent in 2011. An annual Residence Hall Survey indicates that 93.7 percent (2010) and 96.2 percent (2011) agreed, or strongly agreed, that policies were clearly explained and fairly enforced. See GRANT | 8A
AMERICAS GOATS JUMP ON DUNKIN: Legend has it, an Ethiopian goat herder named Kaldi discovered coffee when he noticed his goats jumping around after they ate some of it. Is it true? Probably not, but one thing is certain: The world sure loves its coffee. So, to show this devotion, several countries are observing National Coffee Day on Sunday. In Malaysia, theyll be enjoying kopi. In Sweden, folks will be drinking kaffe. And in Canada, its A Cup o Joe, eh? Some places even give out free coffee to note the day, so you might get yourself a freebie.

John, as his parents called him, began travelling around parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois planting apple tree nurseries a craft he learned by spending time in Wilkes-Barre in the 1790s.

COLUMBUS, Ohio Getting face time with the family doctor could soon become even harder. A shortage of primary care physicians in some parts of the country is expected to worsen as millions of newly insured Americans gain coverage under the federal health care law next year. Doctors could face a backlog, and patients could find it difficult to get quick appointments. Attempts to address the provider gap have taken on increased urgency ahead of the laws full implementation Jan. 1, but many of the potential solutions face a backlash from influential groups or will take years to bear fruit. Lobbying groups representing doctors have questioned the safety of some of the proposed changes, argued they would encourage less collaboration among health professionals and suggested they could create a two-tiered health system offering unequal treatment. Bills seeking to expand the scope of practice of dentists, dental therapists, optometrists, psychologists, nurse practitioners and others have been killed or watered down in numerous states. Other states have proposed expanding student loan reimbursements, but money for doing so is tight. As fixes remain elusive, the shortfall of primary care physicians is expected to grow. Nearly one in five Americans already lives in a region designated as having a shortage of primary care physicians, and the number of doctors entering the field isnt expected keep pace with demand. About a quarter million primary care doctors work in

Editors note: This is one in an occasional series by The Associated Press about the impact of the Affordable Care Acts health insurance exchanges. Open enrollment for these exchanges, or marketplaces, begins Oct. 1.
America now, and the Association of American Medical Colleges projects the shortage will reach almost 30,000 in two years and will grow to about 66,000 in little more than a decade. In some cases, nurses and physician assistants help fill in the gap. The national shortfall can be attributed to a number of factors: The population has both aged and become more chronically ill, while doctors and clinicians have migrated to specialty fields such as dermatology or cardiology for higher pay and better hours. The shortage is especially acute in impoverished inner cities and rural areas, where it already takes many months, years in some cases, to hire doctors, health professionals say. Im thinking about putting our human resources manager on the street in one of those costumes with a We will hire you sign, said Doni Miller, chief executive of the Neighborhood Health Association in Toledo, Ohio. One of her clinics has had a physician opening for two years. In southern Illinois, the 5,500 residents of Gallatin County have no hospital, dentist or full-time doctor. Some pay $50 a year for an air ambulance service that can fly them to a hospital in emergencies. Women deliver babies at hospitals an hour away. The lack of primary care is both a fact of life and a detriment to health, said retired teacher and community volunteer Kappy Scates of Shawneetown, whose doctor is 20 miles away in a neighboring county. People without insurance or a medical card put off going to the doctor, she said. They try to take care of their kids first. In some areas of rural Nevada, patients typically wait seven to 10 days to see a doctor. Many, many people are not taking new patients, said Kerry Ann Aguirre, director of business development at Northeastern Nevada Regional Hospital, a 45-bed facility in Elko, a town of about 18,500 that is a four-hour drive from Reno, the nearest sizable city. Nevada is one of the states with the lowest rate per capita of active primary care physicians, along with Mississippi, Utah, Texas and Idaho, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges. The problem will become more acute nationally when about 30 million uninsured people eventually gain coverage under the Affordable Care Act, which takes full effect next year. Theres going to be lines for the newly insured, because many physicians and nurses who trained in primary care would rather practice in specialty roles, says Dr. David Goodman of the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. Roughly half of those who will gain coverage under the Affordable Care Act are expected to go into Medicaid, the federal-state program for the poor and disabled. States can opt to expand Medicaid, and at least 24 and the District of Columbia plan to.

He walked out but had his hands down by the front of his pants. He complied with a second order to put up his hands and police saw that his pants were open. He put his hands down and tried to pull a brown object from his pants, prompting police to use a Taser on him. He was taken into custody and transported to the Wilkes-Barre General Hospital for treatment of injuries suffered in an earlier incident on the Market Street Bridge. Raechel Murray of Hillside Avenue, Edwardsville, said her Apple iPhone 5 was taken from her by one of the men who surrounded her in the parking lot of the Pantry Quik, 161 Carey Ave. around 4:30 p.m. Saturday. She said four black males, short in stature with thin builds and between the ages of 19 and 21 were walking south on the avenue. They entered the parking lot and one of the started talking to her. The others surrounded her and one of them grabbed her phone from her hand. They ran north on the avenue with Murray chasing them. She said they went into an apartment building on Susquehanna Avenue. Gunmen took a purse and cellphone during a robbery Saturday at a residence on Carbon Lane. The suspects were described as three black males between the ages of 18 and 25 with thin builds and between 5 feet, 9 inches and 5 feet. 11 inches tall. They wore blue jeans and blue, black and gray hooded tops.

Recent confusion over Luzerne County contractors serving on outside boards and authorities has prompted a bylaw amendment thats up for approval at Tuesdays council meeting. The countys home rule charter says employees of businesses that have contracts with the county are prohibited from serving on the countys outside boards and authorities. However, county Chief Solicitor C. David Pedri and Councilwoman Linda McClosky Houck said the charter wording does not expressly ban individual independent county contractors from serving, even though that appears to be the intent. Drew Mamary, who had been appointed to the authority overseeing the Mohegan Sun Arena, was disqualied before Pedri became chief solicitor because Mamary works as a contracted deputy coroner for the county. Two other council appointees Elaine Cook and Frank Jennifer Bognet gave Learnup county Andes compensation as independent County Notebook arbitrators to keep their seats on the Luzerne County Community College Board of Trustees. The proposed bylaw amendment says no county authority or board member shall serve as a county independent contractor in any capacity. At least seven people applied for a newly created deputy election director position by Fridays deadline. The position, which pays $35,000, was added as part of recent restructuring that resulted in three union furloughs. County Operational Services Division Head Christopher Belleman had planned to start his new position as county Flood Protection Authority executive director today but said he agreed to remain in the division head post through Oct. 15 to assist with 2014 county budget preparations.

Participating offenders must report to the Wilkes-Barre center for drug testing and mandatory treatment plans, reducing the prison inmate count by an average 100 per day, ofcials say. The county is expected to receive about $1 million in unanticipated revenue in the near future due to a past loan that was paid off early. A prior county administration obtained a cash advance on unpaid back taxes, a process known as monetization. The loan required to provide this cash advance was paid off,

Childrens Service Center, in conjunction with Luzerne County Community College, will host a juvenile resetters workshop for social workers, marriage and family therapists, and professional counselors 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Oct. 11 at the school at 1333 Prospect St., Nanticoke.

which means roughly $1 million in back tax revenue that wont be needed for the loan can be turned over to the county. Councilman Rick Morelli asked Lawton about the windfall during last weeks budget work session. Lawton said any receipts from the past monetization will be put in a contingency reserve. Lawton told Morelli he has not reached a decision on whether he will ask council to complete a monetization this year. The option was included in the 2013 budget adopted by council to address a $4.3 million void, but Lawton said he would try to nd cuts and new revenue to avoid or reduce the amount of a cash advance because of the fees involved.

Leona Elko would tell you, to beat cancer, youve gotta x your eyes on the sunny side. The 42-year-old mail carrier from Nanticoke was diagnosed with breast cancer in March and, since then, has plowed through waves of struggles to where she is now, going for radiation treatments daily at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center. My life did a complete 180 everythings a challenge, Elko said. I keep my spirits up and try to get through it. The mother of two expects shell be able to return to work in about a year. She is grateful for health insurance through the U.S. Postal Service, but she said the cancer touches every part of her life; not just her body. It wreaks havoc on her emotions and her wallet.

Lisa Atkinson, a close friend who managed a fundraising event for Elko, connected her with Danielle Cavanaugh and the Think Pink Foundation. Cavanaugh, a cancer survivor, started the foundation with three friends to help women with cancer pay medical bills, buy groceries and gasoline, and cover daily expenses. Elko, the foundations rst candidate, received money for due bills and to reimburse past bills. Whatever I had paid, they refunded that. They said, No, thats yours. Pay your rent or whatever you need to pay. I was so grateful, Elko said. The Think Pink group used to be a running team that worked toward the Relay for Life each year in Mountain Top, raising money for cancer patients around the country. We ended up being the top fundraising team. I think our nal year

They realized they had raised a sizable pot of cash in only a few years but never saw it help someone directly. When we did the math, we found we had raised more than $70,000 in four years, Davis said. Thats a lot that we cannot account for. So they hung up their running shoes and gained non-prot status at the beginning of the year. Elkos response conrmed the women are on the right track, Cavanaugh said. After receiving a check in the mail, Elko called in tears, thanking them for the money. It made us feel like, oh my God, all of this is worth it just for that one phone call, Cavanaugh said. The foundation uses Cavanaughs experiences with the illness to determine base needs for cancer patients. It wants to help women wherever theres need, even paying for extra help around the house, she said. Cleaning, gas cards, grocery bills. Thats what we wanted. We want people to realize were not just raising money. We want to be able to get (the money) out now, Cavanaugh said.

Where the dummies talk and bleed, and breathe, and


PLAINS TWP. Here the dummies talk, though their lips dont move. They can bleed, ooze, rasp and go into cardiac arrest. You can insert an intravenous line, apply oxygen and measure the pulse. And if you mess up, they wont complain, theyll let you try again. In fact, thats what theyre for. Some seven years in the making, the Wilkes-Barre Area Career and Technology Center unveiled its new nursing wing for adult students taking the year-long course that can make them licensed practical nurses. Well, more like seven years in the dreaming and one year in the actual construction. The new wing cost about $900,000 and part of that came from a bond the Centers Joint Operating Committee floated, but School of Practical Nursing and Health Careers Director

Mary Beth Pacuska stressed several times during a recent tour that programgenerated money was saved up for years to cover the costs. No tax dollars were spent on this, she said. Along with more classroom space with state-of-the-art computers and interactive smart boards, the wing now has a student lounge they are adults and they had no place to wait between classes, Pacuska said and high-tech mannequins that can provide a pulse, breathing and fake bodily fluids such as blood and urine. Theres even one simulation room where students can be observed through a one-way mirror and video-recorded for closer review later. The staff can also talk through speakers in the mannequins, though Pacuska admitted the effect can be a little eerie because the lips dont move. And the staff can change the vital signs of the

patient in reaction to a students treatment (or simply to throw a wrench into the assessments). We can make them die, Pacuska said, which means the student has to perform CPR. While there are simplied

stations on one side of the new lab with basic beds and no real hospital equipment (for beginner students), the other side has cubicles that closely mimic a real hospital room, with oxygen and suction equipment on the walls. IV machines and electronic medicine carts simi-

lar to those used at local hospitals can be rolled in as needed. Diana Johnson worked a nasal feed tube into one mannequin, then reached to get some equipment. Teacher Cristen Walker admonished, Be careful. You shouldnt let go yet, it could slip out. Walker demonstrated it would help to have a second person nearby to hold the tube until it was secured. In the next station, where teacher Rita Carey-Nita was helping students work with different oxygen masks, Danielle McGlynn, who was in the program last year before the new wing was complete, said the improvements are a big help. We didnt have the handson experience before. Maria Buchleitner took a moment from the lesson to be more succinct. I love it, she said of the facility, then, before turning back to the teacher, she mouthed the words again for emphasis: Love it.

Attack on Pakistani church kills 78

PESHAWAR, Pakistan A pair of suicide bombers blew themselves up amid hundreds of worshippers at a historic church in northwestern Pakistan on Sunday, killing 78 people in the deadliest-ever attack against the countrys Christian minority. A wing of the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the bombing, raising new questions about the governments push to strike a peace deal with the militants to end a decade-long insurgency that has killed thousands of people. The Jundullah arm of the Taliban said they would continue to target nonMuslims until the United States stopped drone attacks in Pakistans remote tribal region. The latest drone strike came Sunday, when missiles hit a pair of compounds in the North Waziristan tribal area, killing six suspected militants. The attack on the All Saints Church, which wounded 141 people, occurred as worshippers were leaving after services to get a free meal of rice offered on the front lawn, said a top government administrator, Sahibzada Anees. There were blasts and there was hell for all of us, said Nazir John, who was at the church in the citys Kohati Gate district along with at least 400 other worshippers. When I got my senses back, I found nothing but smoke, dust, blood and screaming people. I saw severed body parts and blood all around. Survivors wailed and hugged one another in the wake of the blasts. The white walls of the church, which rst opened in the late 1800s, were pockmarked with holes caused by ball bearings contained

Review panel part of NSA, spy efforts

Stung by public unease about new details of spying by the National Security Agency, President Barack Obama selected a panel he described as independent experts to scrutinize the NSAs surveillance programs to be sure they werent violating civil liberties and to restore Americans trust. But with just weeks remaining before its rst deadline to report back to the White House, the review panel has effectively been operating as an arm of the Ofce of the Director of National Intelligence, which oversees the NSA and all other U.S. spy efforts. Obama described the panel an Aug. 9 speech as an independent group and said its members would consider how we can maintain the trust of the people, how we can make sure that there absolutely is no abuse in terms of how these surveillance technologies are used.


in the bombs to cause maximum damage. Blood stained the oor and the walls. Plates lled with rice were scattered across the ground.

The attack was carried out by two suicide bombers who detonated their explosives almost simultaneously, said police ofcer Shafqat Malik.

The 78 dead included 34 women and seven children, said Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan. Another 37 children were among the 141 wounded, he said. The number of casualties from the blasts was so high that the hospital ran short of caskets for the dead and beds for the wounded, said Mian Iftikhar Hussain, a former information minister of surrounding Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province who was on the scene. This is the deadliest attack against Christians in our country, said Irfan Jamil, the bishop of the eastern city of Lahore. Pope Francis led several thousand people in a prayer for the victims while on a visit to Sardinia. Those who carried out the attack, he said, took the wrong choice, one of hatred and war.

For Obama, diplomatic openings on 3 fronts

AP White House Correspondent


On the eve of a landmark trip to the U.N., Irans president offers his most expansive vision that a deal over Tehrans nuclear program could open doors for greater cooperation on regional ash points such as the Syrian civil war. It serves as something of Hasan Rouhanis nal sales pitch to U.S. President Barack Obama and the bid to restart stalled nuclear negotiations and possibly ease painful economic sanctions. But Rouhani also must try to sell his policies of outreach to skeptical Iranian hardliners. It adds up to a high-stakes week ahead for Rouhani in his rst gathering with Western leaders since his inauguration last month.

Catholics welcome popes words on gays, abortion

Associated Press

Chancellor Angela Merkels conservatives triumphed in Germanys election Sunday, and are hoping for the rst single-party majority in more than 50 years. While Merkel was headed for a third term, her center-right coalition partners faced ejection from parliament for the rst time in post-World War II history. Depending on what parties end up in parliament, Merkel could also nd herself leading a grand coalition government with the left-leaning Social Democrats or less likely with the environmentalist Greens. Either way, that would likely to take several weeks of difcult negotiations. Merkel, Germanys chancellor since 2005 and the de facto leader of the response to Europes debt crisis over the past three years, told supporters it was a super result.

Merkel triumphs in German vote


NEW YORK Catholics around the globe are reacting mostly positively to Pope Francis recent remarks that the church has become too focused on smallminded rules on hot-button issues such as homosexuality, abortion and contraceptives. At Masses over the weekend, the faithful reected on how they believe Francis comments will impact the Catholic Church. The pope said Thursday that pastors should focus less on divisive social issues and should emphasize compassion over condemnation. Marilyn White, 73, who worshipped Sunday at New York Citys famous St. Patricks Cathedral, welcomed the popes words. I think he sent a good message, White said. I think hes opening a way for people to communicate, dialogue and maybe come back to the church. New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan told

reporters after Mass that Francis speaks like Jesus and is a breath of fresh air. Outside a church in Coral Gables, Fla., Frank Recio said he was grateful that the pope is trying to shift the tone of the church. Im a devout Catholic, always have been. I think the Catholic Church had gotten out of touch with the way the world was evolving, said Recio, 69, whos retired from a career in the technology industry. He said he was glad about the way the pope discussed abortion. Recio believes life begins at conception but also supports a womans right to choose. He also said hed support changes like allowing priests to marry. Its a natural state in life, for men and women to have a partner, said Recio. Irene Delgado, a practicing Catholic in Havana, Cuba, said the church needs to adapt to modern times. The world evolves, and I believe that the Catholic Church is seeing that it is being left behind, and that is not good, said Delgado, 57. So I think that they

chose this Pope Francis because he is progressive, has to change things. She added: And I am sure the church is going to do it because the church always knows how to adapt to all eras of history. In Boston, Evelyn Martinez, 26, said she agrees with Francis that compassion should be one of the churchs main priorities. I dont believe that someones sexuality should keep them away from any religion, said Martinez, a graduate student at Emerson College who attended Mass on Saturday night. In the Philippines, Asias largest predominantly Catholic nation, Manila businesswoman Ching Domasian said Sunday that the church needs to constantly advocate against abortion and homosexuality, but she appreciates the popes outreach. A day after Francis comments signaling a dramatic shift in Vatican tone, he appeared to offer an olive branch to the more conservative wing of the church by denouncing abortions and stressing the need to defend the rights of the unborn.

Blame already flying in budget fight

Associated Press

A court sentenced Bo Xilai to life in prison for corruption Sunday, burying the career of one of Chinas most upand-coming politicians and lowering the curtain on a scandal that exposed a murder and illicit enrichment among the countrys elite. The former Politburo member and Chongqing city party leader was convicted of bribery, embezzlement and abuse of power Sunday in a case set in motion by his wifes poisoning of a British business associate in late 2011. It also was widely regarded as a political prosecution and a sign that top leaders had turned against the charismatic populist.

Politician gets a life sentence


WASHINGTON Even before a budget deadline arrives, leaders from both parties are blaming each other and some Republicans are criticizing their own for a government shutdown many are treating as inevitable. The top Democrat in the House says Republicans are legislative arsonists who are using their opposition to a sweeping health care overhaul as an excuse to close governments doors. A leading tea party antagonist in the Senate counters that conservatives should use any tool available to stop the Affordable Care Act from taking hold. President Bill Clintons labor secretary says the GOP is willing to risk the entire system of government to get your way, while the House speaker who oversaw the last government shutdown urged fellow Republicans to remember

this is not a dictatorship. The unyielding political posturing on Sunday comes one week before Congress reaches an Oct. 1 deadline to dodge any

interruptions in government services. While work continues on a temporary spending bill, a potentially more devastating separate deadline looms a few weeks later when the government could run out of money to pay its bills. This is totally irresponsible, completely juvenile and, as I called it, legislative arson. Its just destructive, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said in an interview that aired Sunday. The Republican-led House on Friday approved legislation designed to wipe out the 3-year-old health care law that President Barack Obama has vowed to preserve. But the Houses move was more a political win than a measure likely to be implemented. Across the Capitol, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said he would keep the health law intact despite Republicans attempts, in his words, to take an entire law hostage simply to appease the tea party anarchists.

WASHINGTON President Barack Obama arrives at the United Nations today with diplomatic openings, the result of help from unexpected partners, on three fronts: Iran, Syria, and elusive peace between Israel and the Obama Palestinians. All three pathways are fraught with potential pitfalls and hinge on cooperation from often unreliable nations. Obama also risks being branded as naive and misguided if the efforts fail, particularly in Syria, where hes used the prospect of diplomacy to put off a military strike in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack. Still, the recent developments mark a signicant shift on a trio of issues that have long proved problematic for Obama at the United Nations. His former Iranian counterpart used the annual U.N. General Assembly meetings, which open Monday, as a venue for ery, anti-American speeches. Failed Middle East peace talks led the Palestinians to seek statehood recognition at the U.N. despite staunch American objections. And the Obama administration has been stymied on Syria at the U.N. Security Council due to intractable Russian opposition. But this year, Iran has a new leader who is making friendly overtures toward Obama, raising the prospect of a meeting at the United Nations. U.S.brokered peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians have resumed though on an uncertain course. And Russia has joined with the U.S. on a diplomatic deal to strip Syria of its chemical weapons. Joel Rubin, a former State Department ofcial who now works at the nonproliferation organization Ploughshares, said the conuence of events underscores an often frustrating aspect of diplomacy. You never know when its going to break, said Rubin. He said Obamas biggest test now is to recognize if opportunities morph into stalling tactics. Obamas advisers cast the sudden signs of progress as an outgrowth of the presidents long-standing preference for resolving disputes through diplomacy and, in the case of Iran and Syria, with pressure built up through economic sanctions and the threat of military action. He said wed be open to diplomacy, wed pursue engagement, but that there would be pressure if Iran failed to take that opportunity, said Ben Rhodes, Obamas deputy national security adviser. And on Syria, Rhodes said it was the credible threat of a U.S. military strike that opened the door for this diplomacy.

Breaking Bad,Modern Familytop Emmys

LOS ANGELES AMCs Breaking Bad won the primetime Emmy Award for top drama Sunday night, while Behind the Candelabra, HBO, won for top miniseries or movie and ABCs Modern Family for top comedy series. Jeff Daniels won the Emmy Award on Sunday for best drama series actor for his portrayal of an idealistic TV anchorman in The Newsroom, with Claire Danes capturing top actress honors for her troubled CIA agent in Homeland. Daniels noted that hed also received an age 50-plus acting honor from AARP, which represents the interests of older Americans. With all due respect to the AARP, this is even better, Daniels said. Danes, who captured her second trophy for the terrorism drama, paid tribute to one of the series writers, Henry Brommell, who died last March and who received a writing Emmy posthumously Sunday. Danes win ended the hope that Scandal best actress nominee Kerry Washington would become the rst AfricanAmerican to win in the category since Cicely Tyson in 1995 for Sweet Justice. Julia Louis-Dreyfus claimed her second consecutive best comedy actress award for her role as an ambitious political second banana in Veep, with Jim Parsons again claiming the top comedy acting trophy for The Big Bang Theory. This is so much good fortune its almost too much to bear, said Louis-Dreyfus. Im very grateful to have the opportunity to make people laugh. Its a joyful way to make a living. Parsons added to the awards he won in 2011 and 2010 for the role of a science nerd. My heart, oh my heart. I want you to know Im very aware of how exceedingly fortunate I am, he said. Merritt Wever of Nurse Jackie won the nights rst award, for best supporting actress in a comedy series, kicking off the ceremony on a surprising note and with a remarkably brief acceptance speech. Thank you so much. Thank you so much. Um, I got to go, bye, Wever told the audience after besting a eld that included two-time winner Julie Bowen of Modern Family. Merritt Wever, best speech ever, host Neil Patrick Harris said. Backstage, she offered an explanation: Im sorry I didnt thank anyone. I was going to cry. Tony Hale of Veep claimed the trophy for best supporting actor in a comedy, a category that has been the property in recent years of the men of Modern Family. Oh, man. This is mindblowing, mindblowing, Hale said. Laura Linney was named best actress in a miniseries or movie for The Big C: Hereafter. The Voice won best reality-competition program, The Colbert Report was crowned best variety show and Tina Fey won for writing 30 Rock. Bobby Cannavale, from Boardwalk Empire, won as best supporting actor in a drama, and Anna Gunn from Breaking Bad won the best actress award in the same category. The ceremonys rst hour was relatively somber, with memorial tributes and a doleful song by Elton John in honor of the late musical star Liberace, the subject of the nominated biopic Behind the Candelabra. Liberace left us 25 years ago and what a difference those years have made to people like me, said John, who is openly gay in contrast to the closeted Liberace portrayed in the TV movie. Robin Williams offered another tribute. Jonathan Winters was my mentor, Williams said of the actor-comedian. I told him that and he said, Please, I prefer idol. Also honored was Cory Monteith, the Glee star who died at age 31 in July of a drug and alcohol overdose. Cory was a beautiful soul, said his co-star Jane Lynch. He was not perfect, which so many of us here tonight can relate to. His death is a tragic reminder of the rapacious, senseless destruc-

tion that is brought on my addiction. Harris started out the ceremony with help and harassment from past hosts including Jimmy Kimmel, Jane Lynch and Conan OBrien. When they started to squabble, nominee Kevin Spacey of the online show House of Cards got a close-up. Its all going according to my plan. I was promised the hosting job this year and they turned me down, Spacey said, channeling the scheming politician he plays

on the digital series. All eyes were on House of Cards from Netix. The political thriller, the rst online program to compete for the top trophy, is part of a video universe explosion thats added streaming services including Netix and websites like YouTube to broadcast, cable and satellite TV delivery. ABCs Modern Family has the chance at its fourth consecutive best comedy series trophy. House of Cards faces tough opposition. AMCs Breaking

Bad is after its rst best drama award as it nears the end of its ve-season run, and Mad Men would like to claim a fth honor to set a record for most wins in the category. AMCs Mad Men is tied with past greats Hill Street Blues, The West Wing, and L.A. Law. Last year, Showtimes Homeland played spoiler by taking the trophy and is nominated again along with PBS Downton Abbey and HBOs Game of Thrones.

Prisoners tops box office with $21.4 million

AP Film Writer

NEW YORK The more adult-oriented fall moviegoing season got off to a strong start over the weekend, as the Hugh Jackman kidnapping drama Prisoners opened with a box ofce-leading $21.4 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. The Warner Bros. thriller, which also stars Jake Gyllenhaal, is among the rst fall lms with Oscar aspirations to open in theaters. It was a strong debut for a serious, R-rated drama that cost about $46 million to make. Following the robust business for Lee Daniels The Butler (now up to $106.5 million in six weeks for the Weinstein Co.), the large audiences turning out for adult fare bodes well for Hollywoods coming awards season. Directed by Denis Villeneuve, the nearly 2 hour-long Prisoners is about the working-class families of two young girls who are abducted. In a story heavy with allegory, Jackman plays a father willing to cross moral lines for justice. Gyllenhaal stars as the small-town police detective trying to navigate the case.

distribution for Warner Bros., said the audience was 74 percent under the age of 50, with only 8 percent under 18. The lm, he noted, was launched very similarly to Warner Bros.s October-released Argo, which, like Prisoners, premiered at the Telluride Film Festival and then the Toronto International Film Festival. In limited release, two other adult-oriented lms opened well. Ron Howards Formula One tale Rush opened in ve theaters with a $40,000 per-screen average. And the romantic comedy Enough Said, which co-stars James Gandolni in one of his nal performances, opened in four theaters with a perscreen average of $60,000. Both lms expand next week. Prisoners, Rush and Enough Said have all

received good reviews. A few years ago, people were saying that the adult drama is dead, said Paul Dergarabedian, box-ofce analyst for Hollywood. com. Were just seeing a change. Now were nding that intersection between good movies that are also generating big box ofce. Last weeks top lm, Insidious: Chapter 2, slid to second place for FilmDistrict. The horror lm made $14.5 million in its second weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. It has made $60.9 million in two weeks domestically. The Chris Brown dance lm Battle of the Year opened poorly for Sony Pictures Screen Gems,

taking in only $5 million. Warner Bros.s 3-D conversion of The Wizard of Oz made $3 million, opening on 318 IMAX screens. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Where available, latest interna-

tional numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic gures will be released on Monday. 1. Prisoners, $21.4 million ($500,000 international). 2. Insidious: Chapter 2, $14.5 million ($3.5 million international).

3. The Family, $7 million ($1.5 million international). 4. Instructions Not Included, $5.7 million ($9.6 million international). 5. Battle of the Year, $5 million. 6. Were the Millers, $4.7 million ($9.6 million

international). 7. Lee Daniels the Butler, $4.3 million ($2.2 million international). 8. Riddick, $3.7 million ($9.4 million). 9. Wizard of Oz, $3 million. 10. Planes, $2.9 million ($7 million international).

Our lives go on without you, But nothing is the same. We have to hide our heartaches, When someone speaks your name. Sad are the hearts that love you, Silent are the tears that fall. Living our lives without you, Is the hardest part of all. You did so many things for us, Your heart was kind and true. And when we needed someone, We could always count on you.

Shooting raises issues of evolution

enough, he was a recipient of the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal at the Navy! What factors could have motivated him to go on a shooting spree will help answer many searching questions in American conscience. It should also be probed, independently, whether the allegation that Alexis was the shooter is true or not, and needs to be supplemented with CCTV footage. Reports that he had disciplinary issues and was not psychologically sound after converting to Christianity and had gunrelated brushes with the law makes the mosaic too confusing. The trend in the US of going on a rampage at sensitive installations needs to be studied carefully. As rightly stated by Washington D.C Mayor Vincent Gray, it should not be read as a terrorism incident. Rather, it has more to do with the mores and undercurrents of American society in an evolution of its own.

A former U.S. Navy serviceman who went on a rampage at a naval installation in Washington. D.C before being shot dead has left behind numerous questions that are unlikely to be answered. The man who was identied as Aaron Alexis, hailing from Texas, went on a shooting spree and gunned down at least 12 people. He was reportedly armed with a semi-automatic rie and a shotgun. He is also said to have snatched a handgun from a policeman nearby! The narration is too dramatic and unconvincing to believe in a heavily secured installation in the US capital. Moreover, there is confusion as to whether Alexis was acting alone or had accomplices, and what could have been his real motive? The ex-serviceman who was on a roll call as a contractor back with the military, FBI input says, was formerly a petty ofcer in the Navy who completed his full term and was decorated with medals.

Outrage long overdue in unexplained arrests

Enough. Prime Minister Stephen Harper is making discouragingly little headway with muted expressions of diplomatic concern about the fate of two Canadians a physician and a lmmaker who have been languishing for weeks in an Egyptian jail without explanation or charge. Its time to channel some outrage. The military coup that has plunged Egypt into this contempt for due process and the law is a betrayal of its 2011 democratic revolution. It is roiling relations with friendly countries such as Canada and the United States. It is scaring off aid, investment and tourism. And it is condemning Egyptians to yet more violence and instability. Thats the message Harper should be sending, forcefully and publicly, to Cairos generals and their political cronies. Dr. Tarek Loubani and John Greyson were arrested on Aug. 16 after they went into a Cairo police station to ask directions in the midst of political upheaval there. The police now allege that they and a few other foreigners took part in riots involving Muslim Brotherhood supporters near a police station and mosque. Theyve been held for a month, and on the weekend a prosecutor ordered


NEPa gas industry derails Putin plans

Without reverting to Cold War rhetoric, I think it is safe to say that Americas previous rival for world leader has returned. Russia and President Vladimir Putin are increasingly exing their muscles in world affairs. Putins role as a broker between the Assad regime and President Barack Obama may yet prove to be useful, but one cannot help but think he has an ulterior motive. Putin obviously is vying for position and prestige in todays volatile global economy and political environment. How can the country that was virtually bankrupt when the Berlin Wall was torn down in 1989 return to a position of economic and geopolitical strength among traditional and growing market powers so soon? Mr. Putin devised a plan based upon what is believed to be the nations almost limitless supply of gas and oil. His political control of Russian energy sources was well orchestrated. Putin rst expanded the supply of natural gas to the Ukraine and several other former Soviet Union satellites. Then in the winters of 2006 and 2009, he cut them off, eventually extracting signicant price increases from these newly independent countries. Putin later wrestled away government control of Russias gas and oil resources from Yukos, Russias major oil company, by convicting its CEO Mikhail Khodorkovsky of tax fraud. The indictment brought an abrupt end to discussions Yukos was having with ExxonMobil and Chevron regarding joint exploration and rening alliances. With the Putin-led government in direct control of most of Russias energy resources, he became a true energy czar by successfully taking direct control over the long-term contracts and management of the energy industry. Control of the energy industry is Michael vital to the Kremlins MacDowell patronage system, according to Bloomberg Contributing Columnist Magazine. It was also vital to Putins plan to make other countries in Eastern Europe and eventually the West increasingly dependent upon Russian gas and oil. In essence, he wanted to supplant the Wests decreasing gas and oil supply with Russias rapidly developing energy resources. Putin and his strategists, though, did not anticipate a signicant increase in U.S. gas and oil production generated by horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracking. With regard to oil output alone, the growth in the U.S. fracking industry in the past ve years has been equivalent to a nonOPEC country appearing in North Dakota, according to Daniel Yergin of the consulting rm HIS. This increased supply of oil in the U.S. upset Putins plans considerably. Another key factor in the demise of the Russian plan and more relevant to our region is the U.S. is on track to add 2 trillion cubic feet per year of natural gas to the energy market. This represents an 8 percent increase in total U.S. capacity based on initial 2012 production estimates. The expanding domestic supply of natural gas has put a damper on Russian plans to keep its prices high. As U.S. electric generating plants shifted to gas from coal burning operations, our nation shipped its excess coal to Europe, where it is now competing with Russian coal. In fact, the U.S. may supplant Russia as the worlds third largest coal producing country. This complex set of supply-anddemand issues has placed Russia in a precarious position in regard to its overall economic strategy. As a region replete with natural gas reserves, we in Northeastern Pennsylvania play a vital role in staving off Putins plans to increase Russian dominance in the energy market and, therefore, be able to raise energy prices. This development is important because free and balanced trade among nations can best be insured by many supplies chasing many buyers. All of us certainly understand how dependence on foreign energy can cause international conicts that can have catastrophic conclusions. Northeastern Pennsylvania is making the world a safer place by producing a cleaner burning fuel to protect the environment and by staving off the Middle East and now Russia from dominating the energy market.

them held for 15 days more. They fear being jailed indenitely, and have now launched a hunger strike to protest. While their families credit Harper and our diplomats for advocating for John and Tareks release at the highest levels, the pairs detention is an outrage. Our diplomats are in touch, have managed to improve their jail conditions, and have met briey with Egyptian prosecutors. But that still leaves the two in limbo. Canadians cant be expected to turn a blind eye to this. More than 115,000 have signed a petition demanding that Greyson and Loubani be freed. And at the Toronto International Film Festival high-prole stars including Atom Egoyan, Sarah Polley and Alex Gibney took up their cause. Egypt must provide a credible case, or release these men as it should release many others. The Canadian government has vouched for them. They have cooperated with Egyptian ofcials, answered questions and produced evidence that they were on their way to Gaza. Their lengthy detention without charge is yet more appalling proof of just how much Egypt has suffered in this coup.

To the new Miss America we offer hearty congratulations, and best wishes in her determination to ignore the psychos who have been posting racist comments online. It is a sad fact of modern life that bigots can gain visibility much more easily than they used to. There was a day when they had to screw up the courage to confront their targets in the esh. Now they can post a comment online under an anonymous screen name in 30 seconds. And with that vile mission completed, they can move on to pollute another online conversation. So a mere handful of bigots can spread their slime far and wide, making their views seem more common than they are in reality. The messages regarding the new Miss America, Nina Davuluri, who is

Miss America teaches a lesson



Indian-American, proved yet again that bigotry and stupidity often go hand in hand. Heres a sampling: And the Arab wins Miss America. Classic. 9/11 was 4 days ago and she gets Miss America? Congratulations Al-Qaeda. Our Miss America is one of you. For the record, Davuluri, 24, is headed to medical school, unlike the clowns who wrote these notes. When she was asked about the ugly tweets, she turned it into a teaching moment. At the end of the day, we are all Americans, she said. Some of us have different skin color or may speak a different language at home or may practice a different religion. But we are all still American. Tweet that, bigots.

From page 1A The assault came about 30 hours after 10 to 15 al-Shabab extremists stormed the mall Saturday from two sides, throwing grenades and ring on civilians. Loud exchanges of gunre rang out from inside the four-story mall throughout Sunday. Kenyan troops were seen carrying in at least two rocket-propelled grenades. Al-Shabab militants reacted angrily to the helicopters on Twitter and warned that the Kenyan military action was endangering hostages. Kenyan authorities said they would do their utmost to save hostages lives, but no ofcials could say precisely how many people were being held captive. Kenyas Red Cross said in a statement, citing police, that 49 people had been reported missing. Ofcials did not make an explicit link but that number could give an indication of the number of people held captive. Kenyas Red Cross said the death toll rose to 68 after nine bodies were recovered Sunday. More than 175 people were injured, including many children, Kenyan ofcials said. Somalias al-Qaida-linked rebel group, al-Shabab, claimed responsibility for the attack that specically targeted non-Muslims, saying it was in retribution for Kenyan forces 2011 push into neighboring Somalia. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry condemned what he called an enormous offense against everybodys sense of right and wrong, and called the attackers ruthless and completely reckless terrorists. Kerry, who was in New York, for meetings at the United Nations, spoke Sunday with Somalias foreign minister and U.N. ambassador. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said U.S. law enforcement, military and civilian personnel in Nairobi were providing advice and assistance to the Kenyan authorities. She said ve Americans were among the scores of people injured in the attack, but the U.S. had no reports of any American deaths. Earlier in the day, al-Shabab said on its new Twitter feed after its previous one was shut down Saturday that Kenyan ofcials were asking the hostage-takers to negotiate and offering incentives. Well not negotiate with the Kenyan govt as long as its forces are invading our country, so reap the bit-

Obama: Gun law fight ought to obsess us

advanced nation endures the kind of gun violence seen in the United States, and blamed mass shootings in America on laws that fail to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. Whats different in America is its easy to get your hands on a gun, he said. He acknowledged the politics are difcult, a lesson he learned after failing to get expanded background checks for gun buyers through the D e m o c rat i c - c o n t ro l l e d Senate this spring. And thats sometimes where the resignation comes from: the sense that our politics are frozen and that nothing will change. Well, I cannot accept that, Obama said. By now, though, it should be clear that the change we need will not come from Washington, even when tragedy strikes Washington. Change will come the only way it ever

victim of the Saturday attack at the Westgate Mall.

WASHINGTON President Barack Obama on Sunday memorialized the victims of the Washington Navy Yard shooting by calling for a transformation in the nations gun laws to address an epidemic of gun violence, saying, Theres nothing inevitable about it. Reprising his role of the nations consoler in chief after yet another mass shooting, Obama said Americans should honor the victims of last Mondays shooting by insisting on a change in gun laws. It ought to obsess us, Obama said. Sometimes I fear there is a creeping resignation that these tragedies are just somehow the way it is, that this is somehow the new normal. We cannot accept AP photo this, Obama said. He said no other Relatives help a woman at the Nairobi City Mortuary after she identified the body of a ter fruits of your harvest, al-Shabab said in a tweet. Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, who lost a nephew and the nephews ancee in the attack, reiterated his governments determination to continue ghting al-Shabab. We went as a nation into Somalia to help stabilize the country and most importantly to ght terror that had been unleashed on Kenya and the world, said Kenyatta. We shall not relent on the war on terror. Although this violent attack had succeeded, the Kenyan leader said, the countrys security forces had neutralized many others. Former Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga told reporters that quite a number of people were being held hostage in two areas of the sprawling complex, which includes stores for such retail giants as Nike, Adidas and Bose. Many hostages were believed to be in a grocery and general department store called Nakumatt. Kenyan security ofcials sought to reassure the families of hostages but implied that some of those being held could be killed. The priority is to save as many lives as possible, said Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Lenku, adding that more than 1,000 people escaped the attack inside the mall on Saturday. We have received a lot of messages from friendly countries, but for now it remains our operation, Lenku said, adding that Kenyan forces controlled the malls security cameras. Westgate Mall is at least partially owned by Israelis, and reports circulated that Israeli commandos were on the ground to assist in the response. Four restaurants inside the mall are Israeli-run or owned. In Israel, a senior defense official said there were no Israeli forces participating in an assault, but said it was possible that Israeli advisers were providing assistance. The ofcial, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was discussing a classied military issue, would not elaborate.

has come, and thats from the American people. Obama joined military leaders in eulogizing the 12 victims killed in last Mondays shooting, speaking from the parade grounds at the Marine Barracks, a site personally selected by Thomas Jefferson because of its close marching distance to the Navy Yard. The memorial service came on the rst day of fall, which shone brightly in Washington, with sun sparkling off the instruments being played by the Navy Band and the gold dress uniform buttons worn by so many in the crowd. The invitation-only crowd included around 4,000 mourners, with the victims tearful, black-clad family members directly in front of the speakers stage. The president and rst lady met privately with the families before the service, White House ofcials said.

From page 1A litigation seeking payment of millions of dollars in loans for the Wright Township townhouse project, called The Sanctuary. Moran, the judges and their wives, Powell and his wife, and the head of the developments construction company, Michael Cestone, and his wife had guaranteed the banks loans. The W-Cat property had been up for tax auction two years ago, but First National Community Bank ended up paying $38,775 in taxes owed from 2008 through 2010 to get it out of the sale. The bank intervened because the property may be needed to recoup some of the millions of dollars in loans owed by Powell and others. W-Cat now owes $45,732 in school, county and local property taxes for 2011 and 2012. The property didnt sell at a rst-stage auction last week, when liens and all back taxes would become the responsibility of bidders. However, the property would likely draw bidders at the nal stage, free-andclear auction next summer, when all liens and taxes are cleared. The bank would have to pay $45,732 to prevent the property from advancing to the free-and-clear. The 2013 taxes also would be tacked on if payment is made 2014. The property is assessed at $1.23 million. A three-judge panel of the state Superior Court recently ordered Powells rm, the Powell Law Group, to pay First National Community Bank more than $6 million for attorney fees and defaulted loans that had been paid to W-Cat and Powells company, Big Kahuna. W-Cat initially received a 2005 loan of $2.5 million that was extended with two separate $1 million lines of credit. Big Kahuna had received a $1.35 million loan in 2003 and $225,000 in 2004. The Superior Court unanimously rejected Powell Law Groups arguments that the attorney fees were excessive and the loan documents lacked proper signatures and initials. Powells rm is still pursuing a separate November 2012 lawsuit against the bank alleging the lenders actions caused problems with loan and failed townhouse project. A county judge in June denied the banks attempt to throw out the suit. The Powell Law Group, which is now run by Moran and based in Hazle Township, alleges negligence and conict of interest by the bank and certain former bank directors, and seeks more than $50,000 in damages. Public records show Powell has an address in Florida, but he could not be reached for comment. Big Kahuna owned Powells former law ofce in Butler Township. First National Community Bank secured ownership of the Butler Township property through a mortgage foreclosure action in August 2012 and sold the property for $675,000 in July to Fox Run Plaza, LLC, county property records show. Christopher B. Slusser and Kenneth J. Temborski are listed as members of Fox Run Plaza on mortgage documents.

Al-Shabab recruited in US, congressman says

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON A member of the House Homeland Security Committee said Sunday the al-Qaida afliated group behind the deadly attack on an upscale shopping mall in Kenya recruited up to 50 people from Somali American communities in the U.S. U.S. Rep. Pete King said that between 15 and 20 of the Somali Americans al-

Shabab recruited remain active. The New York Republican says the concern is that some may return and use their abilities on the U.S. King said he assumes the FBI and local law enforcement are looking at Somali American communities to make sure no follow up attacks are planned for the United States. King told ABCs This Week he was briefed on the Nairobi attack in which

dozens were killed. He likened the incident to the 2011 terrorist attacks in Mumbai. Meanwhile, Secretary of State John Kerry called Saturdays assault an enormous offense against everybodys sense of right and wrong. Kerry, who is in New York for meetings at the United Nations, on Sunday described the attackers as ruthless and completely reckless terrorists.

He spoke Sunday with Somalias foreign minister and U.N. ambassador. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said U.S. law enforcement, military and civilian personnel in Nairobi are providing advice and assistance to the Kenyan authorities. She said ve Americans were among the scores of people injured in the attack by Islamic extremists, but the U.S. has no reports of any American deaths.

From page 1A By effective targeting at-risk groups, Wilkes can maximize resources to have the highest impact in reducing the amount of dangerous alcohol use and abuse, both on an off-campus, Allen said. Wilkes requested the grant to implement a two-year Alcohol Assessment, Analysis, and Development of an Evidence Based Prevention/Enforcement Strategy. Allen said goals of the project are to: Develop a detailed assessment of alcohol consumption trends on and around campus Evaluate the effectiveness of the campus judicial process relative to alcohol violations Identify specific high-risk populations Allen said that upon completion of the evaluation, a part-time staff person with alcohol assessment and program development experience will be employed to analyze the results and, with the assistance of Student Affairs professionals, develop an intervention program designed to curb alcohol abuse, specically targeting at-risk populations as determined by the assessment. With better assessment data, specically from sophomores through seniors and faculty staff, and a dedicated part-time assessment and program development specialist, the university feels that continued progress can be made in reducing problems associated from alcohol use and abuse, Allen said.

The Lions will also be off on Oct. 19, giving them a break in between games against Michigan and Ohio State. After taking Sunday off as always, the Lions will be back at practice Monday and work at least through Thursday. Well think about giving them Friday off, OBrien said. They have to go to class, obviously, on Friday. Maybe they can go home, if they can, for the weekend and be back Sunday for dinner and get ready to go. Color-coded freshmen OBrien and his coaching staff classify true freshmen as green light (ready to play), yellow light (wait and see) and red light (denitely redshirting). Now four weeks into the season, the staff will be trying to nalize decisions on some of those yellow lights. Through four games, the Lions have played nine true freshmen, and there may not be any more, barring injuries. Quarterback Christian Hackenberg has been joined by receiver Richy Anderson and tight end Adam Breneman on offense. Right now I dont see any other freshmen at this point on offense playing, OBrien said. On defense, when you look at the defensive line, right now I wouldnt see any true freshmen that would play right now. Linebacker Brandon Bell and cornerback Jordan Smith both made cameos on defense against Eastern Michigan and Kent State. Cornerback Anthony Smith saw the eld against Eastern. I think at linebacker, obviously weve played Brandon Bell and well continue to try to involve him in special teams and things like that, OBrien said. In the secondary weve played Jordan Smith, Anthony Smith. Those guys will continue to play. Other than that, I dont see any other freshmen playing on that side of the ball.

Lions feeling decent headed into bye week


Theyre not too banged up. They gained back a bit of momentum Saturday. The Big Ten season awaits. For the Bill OBrien and the Nittany Lions, it sounds like a good spot for an open date. Penn State will be off next weekend before returning to the eld at Indiana for the conference opener on Oct. 5. Were 3-1 and were happy to be 3-1, OBrien said after the Lions smacked Kent State 34-0 on Saturday. Would we love to be 4-0? Of course we would. But 3-1 is better than 2-2. We feel decent about where were at. We have a bye week for a few things. We can get healed up and we can also self-scout and just try to improve as a football team. I think it comes at the right time for us, four games in. Hopefully it will help us. Because of how the calendar falls this year, Penn State will actually have two open dates.

Stenson wins $10M bonus

AP Golf Writer

ATLANTA Henrik Stenson capped off the best stretch of his career Sunday with the biggest payoff in golf. Stenson held off a brief challenge by 20-year-old Jordan Spieth and closed with a 2-under 68 to win the Tour Championship by three shots over Spieth and Steve Stricker. The 37-year-old Swede also captured the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus. Stenson earned $1.44 million for winning the tournament. Stenson, who two years ago was outside the top 200, moved to No. 4 in the world. Spieth left one lasting impression on his remarkable rookie season. The youngest player in Tour Championship history ran off four straight birdies on the back nine at East Lake and pulled within one shot of Stenson with his 10-footer on the 16th. Spieth caught a buried lie See STENSON | 3B

PITTSBURGH Major Wright returned a Ben Roethlisberger interception 38 yards for a touchdown and forced a fumble to set up a eld goal as the Chicago Bears rolled to a 40-23 victory over the reeling Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night. The Bears forced ve Pittsburgh turnovers and converted the rst three of them into points as Chicagos bid for a 3-0 start began with a ourish. The Steelers trailed by as much as 21 points in the second quarter but pulled within a touchdown after a pair of scoring passes from Roethlisberger to Antonio Brown. The second, a one-handed grab by Brown in the back of the end zone with 1:57 left in the third quarter, turned what looked like a rout during most of the rst half into something else entirely. Chicago dominated most of the rst 30 minutes as the sloppy Steelers did little to prove their winless start was a misnomer. The Bears led 24-10 at the break and pushed the advantage to 27-10 when Wright pounced on Felix Jones fumble at the Pittsburgh 30. Pittsburgh now has nine giveaways in three games against no turnovers, falling to 0-3 for the rst time since 2000. Pittsburgh turned it over twice in the rst half. D.J. Williams stripped Roethlisberger in the rst quarter, leading to a 5-yard

touchdown run by Matt Forte. Chicago was up 17-3 midway through the second quarter when Roethlisberger Bears threw off his back foot in the face of a blitz. The bail sailed Steelers right into the hands of Wright, who sprinted down the sideline for a touchdown to give the Bears a commanding 21-point lead. Roethlisberger nished with 406 yards passing and two touchdowns, but also two interceptions

40 23

and two lost fumbles. The score marked the second straight week and the 10th time since the start of the 2012 season the Bears returned an interception for a touchdown, easily the most in the NFL over that span. The Steelers responded with a 33-yard touchdown pass from Roethlisberger to Brown with 6:35 left in the half to give Pittsburgh life. Still, the rst half belonged to the Bears. Chicago needed a pair of fourth-quarter comebacks to win their rst two games. There would be no slow start this time. Forte slipped into the end zone from 5 yards for one touchdown in the rst quarter and broke loose for 55 yards to set up anoth-

er and Chicagos defense continued its ballhawking ways as the Bears raced to a quick 17-0 lead. Working quickly to avoid the myriad of blitzes thrown his way, Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler completed 8 of 10 passes on a 51-yard opening drive that ended with a 47-yard eld goal by Robbie Gould. Four of those completions went to Alshon Jeffery, who came in with six receptions through the rst two weeks. The Steelers hoped the return of tight end Heath Miller would pump some life into the NFLs 31st-ranked offense. Miller hadnt played since tearing ligaments in his right knee last December against Cincinnati.

He sprinted onto the eld on Pittsburghs opening possession and Roethlisberger found him for a 6-yard gain on the teams second offensive play. The momentum quickly vanished. Roethlisberger dropped back to pass on Pittsburghs third offensive snap and stepped up in the pocket to evade the rush. Williams reached for Roethlisbergers hands and the ball came loose. Anderson pounced on it at the Pittsburgh 17. Chicago needed four plays to make it 10-0. Cutler found Forte for an 11-yard gain on thirdand-9, and one play later Forte ipped into the end zone for his second touchdown of the season.

Yankees celebrate Riveras career

AP Sports Writer


NEW YORK Humble as ever, Mariano Rivera began his special day by paying tribute to a Hall of Famer. The New York Yankees retired Riveras No. 42 Sunday, and the great reliever honored Jackie Robinson during a ceremony in Yankee Stadiums Monument Park. Robinsons No. 42 was retired throughout the major leagues in 1997 on the 50th anniversary of the day the Brooklyn Dodgers second baseman broke baseballs color barrier. Players wearing 42 at the time were grandfathered. It is a great pleasure and honor for me to be the last player to ever wear number 42, Rivera said during

the 50-minute ceremonies before the last regular-season day home game of his 19-season career. As Rivera stood nearby, Robinsons wife Rachel unveiled a plaque dedicated to Jackie. Then with his wife and three sons, Rivera uncovered his number changed from Robinsons Dodger Blue to Yankees navy that will be on display in Monument Park alongside the 15 other retired Yankees numbers, honoring 16 players and managers. Before a sellout crowd, the Yankees staged a sort of this is your baseball life pageant for Rivera. Several of Riveras former teammates were on AP photo hand, including Core Four New York Yankees relief pitcher Mariano Rivera walks onto the field member Jorge Posada,

Its official: Phillies are Rynos club

PHILADELPHIA Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. didnt see a reason to wait until the offseason to explore other possibilities. The Philadelphia Phillies removed the interim tag from Ryne Sandberg, signing him Sunday to manage the next three years. I think this is the right person to take us forward, Amaro explained on the decision not to wait. I know his philosophy on the importance of cohesiveness throughout the organization, and thats exactly what were looking for. I know he understands the importance of player development and scouting, hes got an idea and a vision of whats necessary to move this organization forward. Sandberg had been serving as interim manager since the Phillies red Charlie Manuel on Aug. 16. He entered the season as the Phillies third-base coach after from 0the bullpen for a pregame ceremony at Yankees Stadium managing the teams Triple-A Lehigh before a game against the San Francisco Giants on Sunday. The Valley club for two years previously. See RIVERA | 3B 13-time All-Star closer is retiring at the end of this season.

The move was not a surprise, but Sandberg expressed his relief that it nally became ofcial. I think theres been a very large weight lifted off of me, Sandberg said. Im still focused on the last eight games still focused on todays game to tell you the truth but Im looking forward to not only the eight games left but to 2014 and getting the wheels turning in that direction. Before joining the Phillies organization, Sandberg managed in the Chicago Cubs minor-league system for four years. As a player, Sandberg spent 15 of 16 major-league seasons with the Cubs. He left the organization in 2010 shortly after Chicago named Mike Quade its manager to join the Phillies, the team that originally drafted him and ultimately traded him to the Cubs in 1982. Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005, Sandberg hopes to overcome the notion that See PHILLIES | 3B

Kenseth triumphant at New Hampshire

AP Sports Writer

LOUDON, N.H. Matt Kenseth made it 2 for 2 in the Chase, holding off teammate Kyle Busch to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Kenseth followed his win in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship opener at Chicagoland with his series-high seventh victory of the season. Kenseth made his 500th career start and maintained his points lead as the series shifts to Dover. Kenseth and Busch made it a 1-2 nish for Joe Gibbs Racing for the second straight week and helped the organization win for the fourth time in the last ve Cup races. Chase drivers lled six of the top 10 spots. Greg Bife was third and Jimmie Johnson fourth. Dale Earnhardt Jr. was sixth and Carl Edwards ninth. Kenseth joins Bife (2008) and Tony

Stewart (2011) as the only drivers to win the rst two Chase races. Stewart went on to win the title.

Kenseth won for the rst time at New Hampshire and moves on in the No. 20 Toyota to Dover, where hes a two-time

winner. He led 29 laps there earlier this year before an engine failure ended his day. For me to win at Loudon, its more than a stretch, more than a dream, Kenseth said. This is probably one of my worst places. This just shows you how good this team is. JGR, with Busch, in the past has dominated the regular season, but dropped off considerably once the Chase began. Now theyve carried over their success into the Chase and are a credible 1-2 threat to give Toyota its rst Sprint Cup title. Theres somebody faster so it doesnt matter how fast I am, Busch said. JGR has won ve of the last seven races dating to Buschs win at Watkins Glen in August. Kenseth won at Bristol, Busch took Atlanta and Kenseth won the last two. Kenseth has obliterated his season best for wins. His previous high was ve

in 2002 and Kenseth won only once in 2003 when he won the Cup championship. While NASCAR has been smacked with scandal, Kenseth has quietly gone under the radar doing what he does best: winning races. He has 31 wins in 500 starts. Its been a great start for JGR, Kenseth said. I just feel like the luckiest guy in the world to be standing here. Chase drivers took spots 13-17: Kurt Busch, Joey Logano, Jeff Gordon, Ryan Newman and Clint Bowyer. Kevin Harvick was 20th and Kasey Kahne slammed the inside wall with 48 laps left and was 37th. Kenseth took the lead from Bowyer with 92 laps left. Martin Truex Jr., whose future is in limbo after NAPA dropped its sponsorship of Michael Waltrip Racing in the wake of the NASCAR scandal at Richmond, led a race-high 98 laps.

From page 1B in the bunker short of the 17th green and made bogey, while Stenson steadied himself with an 8-foot birdie on the par-5 15th to return his lead to three shots. Stenson only made it easy at the end with three pars nearly holing out from the bunker right of the 16th green, hitting a scary shot from the right fairway bunker on the 17th to the middle of the green, and saving par from another bunker on the 18th. Spieth closed with a 64, while Stricker had a 65. Stenson, who nished at 13-under 267, became the rst European to win the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup. His amazing summer began with a tie for third in the Scottish Open. Stenson followed with a runner-up at the British Open and the World Golf Championship at Firestone, third place at the PGA Championship and a win at the Deutsche Bank Championship. The Tour Championship was his second win in three tournaments of the FedEx Cup playoffs. Since the Scottish Open, its been just an incredible run, he said. Im speechless. It was a tough day out there. To hang in there the way I did, Im really satised. It hasnt quite sunk in yet. I had to ght hard mentally to keep all this aside, and I managed to do that. Its going to feel better as the week goes on. Im pretty sure about that. Tiger Woods, the No. 1 seed going into the Tour Championship, never recovered from his 73-71 start. He closed with a 67 to tie for 22nd, his worst nish ever at East Lake, and wound up second in the FedEx Cup. That still was worth a $3 million bonus. Woods wrapped up the PGA of Americas points-based award for player of the year, and he captured the PGA Tour money title and the Vardon Trophy for the lowest adjusted scoring title. Next up is a vote of the players for PGA Tour player of the year. He is the heavy favorite with ve wins this year. The award is to be announced on Friday. Stricker had birdie chances on the last two holes, unaware that making one of them would have been worth an extra $1 million. He only cared about winning the tournament, knowing he needed birdies and for Stenson to make a mistake. I knew the putt meant a lot. I didnt know it meant that much, he said with a smile. Instead of nishing second in the FedEx Cup, Stricker had to settle for third and the $2 million bonus. Spieth had a 55-foot birdie putt across the 18th green that stopped inches away. His season was simply remarkable. The young Texan started the year with no status on any tour, and wound up with a win, more than $3.8 million in earnings and a trip to the Presidents Cup in two weeks. Henrik obviously was playing phenomenal golf, Spieth said. I felt like once a few putts started falling, we have a shot at it. Stenson became the fth player to win his debut at the Tour Championship, a list that starts with Tom Watson when the elite 30-man eld began in 1987. He also became the rst player to go wire-to-wire without ties since Watson.

Penske stands by team despite scandal

AP Sports Writer

LOUDON, N.H. Roger Penske was set to surrender his usual spot on the spotter stand for a seat in a suite. Its one concession from the fallout of the Richmond scandal. But Penske, back at a NASCAR track for the rst time since the sports big embarrassment, insisted his team was in the clear and knew nothing about a deal with Front Row Motorsports to get Joey Logano into the Chase. We didnt do anything, quite obviously, Penske said Sunday at New Hampshire. When I heard the crew chief on whatever car it was made all this big noise, we didnt have any deal at all. Thats how people role play stuff in NASCAR. I think at the end of the day, it worked out for everybody and were moving on.

The arrangement was brought to light in a late race conversation between Front Row team members, who were willing at Richmond to have David Gilliland move aside for Logano in exchange for something it had previously asked for from Penske Racing. When told to relay that information to Loganos spotter, the crew chief is told the request for track position is coming from the whole committee. Weve got the big dog and all of his cronies, the spotter said in an apparent reference to team owner Penske and other team employees. There was no evidence of any wrongdoing on Loganos analog radio communications, which are accessible to the public. But NASCAR placed both Penske Racing and Front Row on probation, banned digital radios on the spotter stand - its possible the Penske team com-

municated over the a private, digital radio - and only one spotter per team will be allowed on the stand. That means Penske believed to have been The Big Dog referred to in the Front Row radio chatter - can no longer watch the race from his preferred perch on the roof, and NASCAR has installed a camera atop every roof to monitor things. Penske said he had only watched one race at a NASCAR track from a spot other than the spotter stand. Im going to nd a nice spot in the suite, he said, or maybe Ill stay home and watch on TV. Penske has plenty on his plate besides dealing with NASCARs penalties and hoping Logano can rebound from his 12th-place spot in the Chase to work his way into contention. His IndyCar Series team signed former Indianapolis 500

winner Juan Pablo Montoya to mark an open-wheel return and hes trying to nd a Cup ride in 2014 for Sam Hornish Jr. Hornish is closing in on a championship in the Nationwide Series but his status for next season is up in the air. With Logano and defending champion Brad Keselowski locked into the two Penske Cup seats, theres no room at Penske in the top series for Hornish, who has made 93 career Nationwide starts for Penske and has run 130 Cup races for him since 2007. Hornish is a three-time IndyCar champion and the 2006 Indianapolis 500 winner for Penske. Penske said hes yet to make a decision on Hornishs future. There have been other teams that have contacted him, he said. I just told him, Hey, take a good look and see whats out there. Thats what were doing right now.

Montoya was signed without any sponsorship. Montoya will team next season with current IndyCar points leader Helio Castroneves and Will Power while driving for Penske, winner of 15 Indianapolis 500s. Also on Penskes to-do list, keeping 19-year old Ryan Blaney in the organization. Blaney earned his rst Nationwide Series victory Saturday night at Kentucky Speedway. He held off Austin Dillon and survived several late cautions to take the checkered ag. Penske wanted Blaney to run in the Truck Series next year, along with some Nationwide races. He showed hes as good or better as anyone out there, Penske said. Penske also ruled out any interest in Martin Truex Jr. or expanding his Cup team or Nationwide teams beyond two cars each.

From page 1B make good managers. I dont know too many Hall of Famers who went to the minor leagues for six years to work their way up, Sandberg said. I thought it was necessary. It was also the only job that was offered at the time that had something to do with it. As it turns out, it was the right path. The new skipper also believes he can succeed because hes a great communicator. Communication is one of my strengths, which is ironic because as a player I think I wasnt strong at all at communicating. I was focused on catching the ball and hitting it, and it kind of stopped there, Sandberg said. That was all part of going to the minor leagues and aging a little bit and maturing. And I think raising ve kids in the house, all teenagers at once, I think the communication skills really developed then too, and its continued. Since Sandberg took over in mid-August, the Phillies have gone 18-16. They were 53-67 at the time he took over the ballclub. Based on the body of work that he did for us, we had to kind of take that into account, Amaro said. It was very, very clear to me right from the getgo the way he handled the transition, which was a very difcult period, having to take over for an icon of sorts in Phillies history in Charlie (Manuel). It was a very difcult circumstance, and he handled it well. He handled the players well and he handled the clubhouse well. I really liked the instincts and how he handled things. Sandberg signed a three-year AP photo contract, taking him through Ryne Sandberg was officially installed as the Philadelphia Phillies manager 2016 with a club option for Sunday, just over a month taking over as the interim skipper after Charlie 2017. Manuel was fired.

From page 1B role reversal threw a ceremonial rst pitch that Rivera caught. Former manager Joe Torre also was on hand along with Gene Michael, the general manager at the time Rivera signed with the organization in 1990. After video highlights of a 19-year big league career that includes a record 652 saves, a recording of Yankees longtime public address announcer Bob Sheppard introduced Rivera. Then the bullpen door swung open and the rst chords of Enter Sandman, rang out. Only this time the song that for more than a decade almost always indicated the end of the game for New Yorks opponent was being played live. Metal icon Metallica performed their hit from a stage in center eld, lead singer James Heteld crying out, For you Mariano. Instead of jogging in from the bullpen, Rivera slowly walked to the ineld. Standing in front of the mound, many of Riveras friends and family took photos and videos as the 13-time All-Star was given several long ovations and serenaded with chants of Mar-i-ano! While Metallica played, Andy Pettitte, Riveras teammate on ve World Series championships, began his warmups in right eld. Pettitte announced Friday with Riveras encouragement that he was also retiring at the end of the season and, in a neat coincidence, his nal regular-season start was to come on Riveras day. Rivera has saved 72 of Pettittes 255 regular-season wins, the most for any tandem in major league history. At every stadium the Yankees visited this season, Rivera was presented gifts of appreciation. The San Franicsco Giants, led by pitching coach Dave Righetti the former Yankee that Rivera supplanted as the teams career saves leader gave Rivera an ink print of his appearance at their ballpark in 2007 and a guitar from Metallica member Kirk Hammett signed by Giants Hall of Famer Willie Mays. Its a credit to not just his talent but who he is, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of the adulation Rivera received from opponents. Hes one of the greatest people in the game as far as how he handles himself, how humble he is, how well respected and revered he is by all the other clubs. Yankees captain Derek Jeter and manager Joe Girardi one of Riveras rst catchers carried out a rocking chair made of bats and stamped with the logo honoring Rivera that the Yankees are wearing on the side of their game caps for the remainder of the season. He was the greatest pitcher I ever caught, he was the easiest pitcher I ever caught, Girardi said. The numbers speak for themselves but the way he has gone about his business is something you wish everyone could do. The Steinbrenner family presented Rivera with a crystal glove holding a ball, and a framed replica of his retired number and the plaque that will have a permanent place in Monument Park. Rivera, a son of a Panamanian sherman, made his big league debut in 1995, starting 10 games, spoke for more than six minutes on a beautiful autumn afternoon, the time of year he excelled. He nished his speech eager to shift the spotlight off himself and back to his team. Lets play ball, Rivera said.

Americans stave off elimination

AP Sports Writer

SAN FRANCISCO This has become the Americas Cup that just wont go away, thanks to ckle wind and Oracle Team USAs remarkable resurgence. Twice down by seven races, the defending champions no doubt have Emirates Team New Zealand on edge. Skipper Jimmy Spithill and his mates with Oracle Team USA were masterful in light air Sunday on San Francisco Bay, winning Races 14 and 15 to cut the Kiwis lead to 8-5. Spithill steered his 72-foot catamaran

to huge leads in both races and has won four straight since the Kiwis reached match point on Wednesday. Docked two points in the biggest cheating scandal in the 162-year history of the Americas Cup, Oracle needs four more wins to keep the oldest trophy in international sports. Oracle won Race 14 by 23 seconds and then took Race 15 by 37 seconds. After the regatta was slowed by too much wind, too little wind and then wind from the wrong direction, Spithill and the Oracle boys have made it a contest. Oracle has won six of the last eight races and six of 10 since Spithill replaced

American tactician John Kostecki with British Olympic star Ben Ainslie, who had been the helmsman of the backup boat. Race 16 and Race 17, if necessary, are scheduled for Monday. Oracle Team USA, owned by software billionaire Larry Ellison, has made changes to its catamaran every night at its base on Pier 10. Whatever it did after Saturdays race was postponed made the cat look like a rocket ship sailing downwind on its hydrofoils, its hulls completely out of the water. The American boat even foiled sailing upwind on the third leg of Race 15 at about 35 mph.

Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker was slightly ahead at the start but had a little skid heading across the wind, which helped allow Spithill to reach the rst mark rst and round with a 3-second lead. Sailing downwind, Oracle opened a lead of some 765 yards. There was a heart-stopping moment when Oracle sailed into a wind shadow and slowed dramatically as it passed Alcatraz Island and approached the top mark. The Kiwis closed to about 100 yards, but then they lost their wind and Spithill surged around the fourth mark and sped across the wind on its foils to the nish line just off Americas Cup Park on Pier 27-29.

Panthers feast on a Giant disaster

helped open up an offense that had been mostly stagnant this season. Newton had 223 yards passing and threw two touchdown passes to Brandon LaFell and one to Ted Ginn Jr. He ran for 45 yards and his rst TD of the season. The Panthers had started their rst two seasons 1-5 and 1-6 under Rivera and there was plenty of speculation surrounding his job entering the game Sunday after their slow start this year. Despite missing three defensive starters, the Panthers elected to defer to the Giants after winning the coin toss. Carolinas defense dominated from there. The Panthers set the tone early, sacking Manning ve times in the rst quarter. They limited the Giants to 18 total yards 1 yard passing and two rst

CHARLOTTE, N.C. The Carolina Panthers wanted to eliminate talk of coach Ron Riveras job security entering the bye week. So they earned their most lopsided victory. Cam Newton threw three touchdown passes and ran for another, and Carolina sacked Eli Manning seven times as the Panthers handed Tom Coughlin his worst defeat as coach of the New York Giants, 38-0 Sunday. It was the largest margin of victory in Panthers history after they surrendered fourth-quarter leads in their rst two games, losses to Seattle and Buffalo. The Panthers (1-2) allowed Newton to run out of the read option, which

downs in the rst half and took a 17-0 lead to the locker room. The Panthers turned to a read-option on their second possession, something they used frequently the last two seasons but havent gone to much this year. Newton ran four times for 40 yards on the drive, with fullback Mike Tolbert scoring on a 2-yard run. After a 53-yard eld goal by Graham Gano, Newton found LaFell in the corner of the end zone with 12 seconds left in the half. Carolina then put the game away with touchdowns on its rst two possessions of the third quarter. Newton connected on a 20-yard strike to LaFell and then scored from 3 yards on a quarterback draw. Newton later connected on a 47-yard pass with Ginn. THE TIMES LEADER

Goaltender injuries causing ripple effect


WILKES-BARRE On Saturday afternoon, as the rst day of Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins training camp came to an end, head coach John Hynes spoke about the importance of having depth at the goaltender position. The chain effect is more dramatic than any other position, he said. Later in the day, Hynes words would ring true as Pittsburgh goaltender Tomas Vokoun left the practice ice and underwent a procedure to dissolve a blood clot in his pelvis. Vokoun is out indenitely, leaving Pittsburgh with Marc-Andre Fleury and Jeff Zatkoff, last years starter with WilkesBarre/Scranton. Adding to the ripple effect is goaltender Peter Manninos status. He is still considered day-to-day with an injury. And just like that, only two days into WilkesBarre/Scrantons training camp, the goaltending position could undergo some major changes. Right now its a twopronged effect because Mannino is day-to-day and, as of right now, Zatkoff is going to get a good oppor-

tunity to become the num- have two goalies out. ber two in Pittsburgh with But theres more. Hynes Vokoun out, Hynes said. added that the team may We, as an organization, look at bringing a third

goaltender to go along with veteran Andy Chiodo and rookie Eric Hartzell. With a pair of preseason games coming up this week, Hynes said things are going to pick up and it would be nice to have a third goaltender to help carry the load in practice. It seems ne now, but there may be an inux of players coming down Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, and then we get into games, he said. With Vokoun and Mannino both sidelined, the opportunities for Chiodo and Hartzell undoubtedly improve. Chiodo, 30, is entering his 11th professional season and his second stint with the Penguins. He was the starter in net when the Penguins went to the Calder Cup Final in 2004 and spent the last three seasons in Europe. Hartzell, 24, was signed by the Penguins over the summer after completing four seasons of college hockey. Earlier this year, he was named the USA Hockey College Player of the Year after leading Quinnipiac to the Frozen Four. As of now, both players represent Wilkes-Barre/ Scrantons goaltending tan-

dem, with Chiodo being the seasoned veteran and Hartzell the top prospect. But that could change with another injury or someone getting healthy again. Its difcult when you have injuries because theres only two (goaltenders) per team, Hynes said. It really affects the depth in your organization and its a rapid, trickle effect more than any other positions. Chiodo and Hartzell are both ready for any extra opportunities that may come their way. You dont want anyone to go through what Vokoun is going through, Chiodo said. The main thing, in professional hockey, is things happen every day. All we can do is be prepared. Over my years, Ive seen so many situations where guys have injuries and as a player you just try to be prepared every day. Hartzell is taking a similar approach. Wherever I am is where my focus is. Right now, my mind is in Wilkes-Barre until otherwise, he said. But this is why practice is so important. Its your opportunity to get better every day and if Im called

upon, Ill be ready to go.


- Hynes said he may hold an intra-squad practice today as players continue to battle for a spot in the organization. With the rst exhibition game coming up on Wednesday in Rochester, Hynes said the expected inux of players from Pittsburgh will mean that not everyone will get penciled in for a preseason game. Thats why practices and scrimmages are important, he said. When youre in a training camp setting, youre going against guys you are going to play with. But youre also ghting for a spot and to make a name for yourself, Hynes said. Not everyone is guaranteed a game, and when it gets to competitive situations in practice or a scrimmage, that may be their only opportunity. Sundays practice featured plenty of intensity, highlighted by Clark Seymour and Chaz Johnson exchanging big hits during two-on-two drills. Johnson is a nine-year pro known for his physical play, and Hynes was happy to see him establish the intensity during practice.

Anytime a guy does that in the drills or a practice, it always raises the competitive level, Hynes said. You have to be ready to go. Anytime you have guys practice at that intensity level, it always raises everyone elses game. - Hartzell spent some time with Pittsburgh as their third goaltender during the postseason and also was with the big club for the start of this years training camp. Although he has yet to play a professional game, Hartzell said the experience with Pittsburgh helped prepare him for the big day. Those guys are just so good up there and it really helped my game. You have to be patient and not overreact against them, he said. Theyre just so good at what they do that it helps you read plays and stay patient. I wouldnt trade that experience for the world. - Despite the uncertainty surrounding the goaltender position throughout the organization, Hynes said Mannino wont be rushed back. Even though it seems like theres a good opportunity, its more important for him to be ready for the regular season, Hynes said.

In the rst month of the season, the coach had been questioned frequently about his offenses puzzling woes on third downs. After a tough loss to Central Florida a week ago that left the Lions ranked 122nd out of 123 teams in the category, he rubbed his temples with his hands, growing tired of hearing about it.

CINCINNATI A freshman offensive lineman for Cincinnati was killed and two freshman receivers were injured in a onevehicle accident following the Bearcats 14-0 win over Miami of Ohio on Saturday night in nearby Oxford. Ben Flick of Hamilton, Ohio, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, which occurred south of Oxford. Receivers Mark Barr of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Javon Harrison of Dayton, Ohio, were taken by Flick helicopter to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. Barr and the driver of the vehicle whose identity has not been released were listed in critical condition. Harrison was in stable condition. The three players are redshirting and didnt dress for the game or travel with the team. They were returning from Oxford, located 25 miles north of Cincinnati. I cant put into words how tragic this is, coach Tommy Tuberville said in a statement. As a father and a coach, its something you hope you never have to go through. Ben was so proud to be a part of this team and university. He worked hard and had shown a great deal of improvement since the summer. His future was bright. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Flick family on their loss. We also hope and pray for Mark and Javon to recover from their injuries. The 6-foot-6, 272-pound Flick was a guard at Hamilton High School, where he made the AllGreater Miami Conference second team as a senior. Barr is a 6-foot-1, 163-pound receiver who caught 33 passes for 741 yards while helping St. Thomas Aquinas win a Florida state title as a senior. Harrison was a receiver and quarterback at Huber Heights Wayne in suburban Dayton. Harrison enrolled at Cincinnati in January and participated in spring football. The Bearcats have a bye week following their win in Oxford. Our hearts go out to all the families involved, athletics director Whit Babcock said. We are doing all we can to help and support them along with the rest of our student-athletes.

Daughter of mom who was murdered should learn the truth in time
Dear Abby: My granddaughter was murdered by her boyfriend. They had an 18-month-old daughter, Bella. All three were living together when he shot her, but we dont know what room Bella was in when it happened. Another family member (Ill call her Lucy) took Bella into her home, and Bella calls her Mom. Lucy has been taking Bella to the prison to visit her father, but has told her he is her uncle. I told Lucy I thought it would be better to wait until Bella is old enough to understand, THEN tell her what happened and let her decide whether she wants to visit her father. Bella went into the closet one day

ADVICE and came out holding a T-shirt with her mothers picture on it, asking, Who is this? Lucys only response was, You know you arent allowed in my closet. Take that back! She never answered the question. I have a framed photo of Bellas mother on my wall. The last time Bella was here, I noticed her looking out of the corner of her eye and scowling at the picture. I was the only one who noticed. Bella is now 4, and I cant accept that Lucy thinks its OK to lie to her. I feel it should be Bellas decision whether to visit her dad. Am I wrong?

How should this be handled so Bella isnt traumatized any more than need be? Because of these incidents, Im almost convinced she should have some kind of counseling, but perhaps shes too young. This is why I desperately need advice, in the best interest of the child. Bellas Great-Grandma Dear Great-Grandma: Is Lucy a member of your family or the murderous boyfriends? I find it hard to comprehend that a family member of the victim would drag a toddler to a prison to visit the lowlife who killed her mother. I do not think it is healthy to lie to children. This situation will explode when Bella finally learns that the woman she has always called Mom

isnt her mother, and the man in the orange jumpsuit not only isnt her uncle but killed her birth mother. That poor girl wont know whom she can believe and could have trust issues that affect her relationships for the rest of her life. Dear Abby: What is your opinion about females and car maintenance? My mother raised me alone and taught me to be independent. She would not let me drive an automatic car until I had mastered driving a standard (stick shift). I was also not allowed to drive until I was able to perform basic, essential tasks changing a tire, checking the oil and maintaining all fluid levels. I am thankful and appreciate that I have these skills. However, I know

many women today who cant perform these tasks and would rather make it a mans job. I think every woman should have these skills. Where do you stand? Independent Lady in Florida Dear Independent Lady: I stand beside you. There is no guarantee that a woman will have a man to take care of her. However, if she cant learn the basics of taking care of her car, she should be sure that shes a member of AAA.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You correctly assume that right now you have more energy at your disposal than others. Thats why even though the task at hand is difficult and weighty, you feel it is your duty to take it on. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It seems that lately when you help others it comes at your own expense and it is very expensive, indeed! This isnt the way it has to be. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You assume that whats going on inside everyone elses head is pretty close to whats going on inside your head. An interaction will remind you that some people are hardwired very differently. CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you feel that you must continually try harder and harder to make a relationship work, thats a sign that the relationship is inherently dysfunctional. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Keeping score can be such a chore that youd rather avoid playing the game. When you spend time doing the things that are intrinsically worthwhile, you dont have to worry about what your takeaway will be. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may have claimed your territory long ago, but some of the invisible fences you erected to protect your space have eroded over time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You dont mind problems, as long as they are new problems. If you see the same problem twice, its an invitation to consider and try out a wider array of options. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The reason you shouldnt jump through the hoops being dangled before you today is that its a trick. However easy the first jump is, the hoop will only get higher and higher. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will be a magnet for amorous attention. If this kind of attention is unwanted, prepare to pull a third party into the conversation and tap dance away from your admirer. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Youd like to think that your feelings are self-generated and contained, and yet the days ups and downs will have a lot to do with how the people around you are feeling. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you consider it a high honor that people can relax and be themselves around you, then you will be pleased by todays events. You may also be shocked or amused by what happens. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Music and math are related, but its hard to dance to math. Your stars highlight new tastes and tunes. Mix up the soundtrack of your life, and let your mood follow a song. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Sept. 23). You care deeply about global matters, and this year youll act to improve circumstances for people you dont know. At home, a loving gesture in October starts a beautiful new era in a relationship. You will be able to afford what you want in December. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 40, 33, 16 and 2.

Harper Lee in spat with museum

Associated Press


MONTGOMERY, Ala. To Kill a Mockingbird author Harper Lee is at odds with a museum in her Alabama hometown that celebrates her literary achievement over use of the words in the title of her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Lee is seeking a trademark for the words when they are used on clothing. The Monroe County Heritage Museum in Monroeville is opposing the application, contending the sale of souvenirs with the words is vital to its continued operation. Lees New York attorney, Robert Clarida, said the 87-year-old author, who lives in Monroeville, has never received a penny from the museums sale of T-shirts, caps and other souvenirs. They want to continue selling the merchandise without Ms. Lee getting any money, he said Friday. Museum Director Stephanie Rogers said Lees book drives tourism in the rural south Alabama county. She said the museum has always been supportive of Lee, and she has never said anything about the souvenirs when visiting the museum. I feel like all we do is honor her here, she said. The nonprot organization operates several attractions in Monroeville and uses To Kill a Mockingbird for its website address. The organizations attractions include the old county courthouse housing the courtroom that served as the model for the movie To Kill a Mockingbird. The courthouse draws 25,000 to 30,000 visitors annually and features a display that tells Lees story in her own words. In April and May, it will present its 25th annual production of the play, To Kill a Mockingbird. Rogers said the museum pays royalties to produce the play, but it has never paid for selling the souvenirs. She said tourists want a memento of their visit, and the proceeds are the key to museums continued operation and its educational programs. Museum attorney Matt Goforth said Friday, We are hopeful this legal dispute, originally initiated by Ms. Lees attorneys, will not damage our relationship. Lees attorney said people occasionally show up online up selling To Kill a Mockingbird merchandise, but a letter to cease usually takes care of that. He said the trademark application is aimed at the museum because of its continuous sale of merchandise. That merchandise is remaining on sale while the trademark application is pending. Attorneys on both sides said the timeline for legal arguments set by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Ofce means the case could take a year or more. Last week, Lee settled the lawsuit she led to secure the copyright to her classic novel. A federal judge in New York City approved the order dismissing the case against Samuel L. Pinkus, the son-in-law of Lees former literary agent, and companies he allegedly created. Two other defendants had been dropped from the suit a week earlier. Lees trademark application was rst reported by The Monroe Journal, the newspaper in Monroeville.
