WILKES-BARRE The man who had been known as Luzerne Countys watchdog will now be watched by the county for three years after pleading guilty Tuesday to illegally recording conversations. He was immediately sentenced to probation. Griffith Former County Controller Walter Grifth appeared Tuesday in Luzerne County Court, where he pleaded guilty to three misdemeanor charges of obstructing the administration of justice and was sentenced to three years probation. Grifth, 58, of Kingston Township, was originally charged with three felony counts relating to the recorded conversations, actions his attorney says were a product of Grifths zealousness.

My dad always told me everything is good in moderation, attorney Joe DAndrea told Judge Fred Pierantoni. Walter didnt understand moderation. I dont think he thought he was doing anything wrong. As part of Grifths plea agreement with the state Attorney Generals Ofce, he had to waive a preliminary hearing, resign from serving as the countys controller, remove his name from the ballot for the November election and agree not to seek ofce during his probationary period. Today is a sad day for Walter, DAndrea said. He is terribly remorseful he has been humiliated and has taken his medicine. Hes accepted responsibility. See GRIFFITH | 10A

William Jeffery Paulishs lawyer asks public to wait to hear clergymans defense

Priest in sex case released on bail

his lawyer urged the public to hear his clients side of the story before rushing to judgment. The Rev. William Jeffery Paulish, 56, was released from the Lackawanna County Prison at about 1:45 p.m. after posting $50,000 straight bail, Carbondale defense attorney Bernard J. Brown said. I just want the public to wait, Brown said, add- Paulish ing that he and his client have yet to challenge the prosecutions allegations in court. And Im going to ask the jury, if we get to that point, to extend to Father Paulish the presumption of innocence. I do have a defense strategy, Brown added, although he said it was premature to discuss specics. Ordained in 1988, Paulish has served at more than a dozen Northeastern Pennsylvania parishes, including assignments in Exeter, Hazleton, WilkesBarre and Bear Creek, according to diocesan records.

Bank was picked over eight other financial institutions


Council picks PNC as countys banker

administration to reduce the countys bank accounts from 140 to as few as 25 by the end of the year, Lawton said. The countys home rule charter mandated bank account consolidation. Some accounts must remain segregated by law. The proposal from PNC was deemed most attractive largely because the bank agreed to waive many fees to save the county money, Lawton said. PNC also will allow the County Controllers Ofce to instantly view all withdrawals, deposits and transfers oversight access that wasnt available before, he said. I think its something the public should really celebrate, said Councilman Harry Haas. Councilwoman Elaine Maddon Curry has been inquiring about banking consolidation since she took ofce in January 2012. Its about time we had one major banking service, she said. Councilman Jim Bobeck noted the administration picked the bank, and no rounds of golf or glasses of wine were involved in the selection process. Its all about the merit, he said. A council vote clarifying that individual county contractors cant serve on county boards and authorities sparked debate Tuesday. The amendment, which passed, was proposed because the charter says employees of businesses with county contracts cant serve on outside county boards but didnt expressly ban individual contractors. The amendment would apply to deputy coroners and attorney arbitrators who receive a at fee but are not on the county payroll. Councilman Rick Williams voted against the amendment, saying charter limitations have forced the county to reject several viable applicants for unpaid board and authority seats because they have very minor involvement in county government. For example, marketing professional James Reino had to give up his appointment to the authority overseeing the Mohegan Sun Arena because he works for UGI Energy Services, which has a county contract. Williams said he understands

With money constantly owin g in and out, Luzerne County government has $30 million to $70 million deposited in at least six banks at any given moment. County ofcials wanted to move this money into one bank that would offer the best and most affordable services to manage the funds, such as online transfers and check access. County Manager Robert Lawton announced during Tuesdays council meeting the administration selected PNC Bank over eight other nancial institutions that submitted proposals to handle the countys banking. PNC also will work with the

charter drafters imposed strict restrictions to prevent any appearance of favoritism and connections in the appointments, but he believes more public discussion about other options is warranted. We need to widen the pool, not narrow it, Williams said. Bobeck, who also voted no, said deputy coroners and arbitrators save the county money and should not be barred from serving on boards. One deputy coroner gave up an arena authority seat, and two attorneys stopped accepting compensation as arbitrators to keep their seats on the Luzerne County Community College Board of Trustees. Councilwoman Linda McClosky Houck said more than 300,000 people live in the county and urged more to volunteer to serve on boards.

Wyoming Area picks new super; talks, no deal in contract dispute


From page 1A State Worthington Scranton said they discovered Paulish parked in a red Toyota on Thursday night with a 15-year-old boy who wasnt wearing any pants, according to an afdavit. Paulish allegedly told police under questioning at the Dunmore police station that he arranged the meeting via the online site Craigslist. Paulish also allegedly told police he asked the teen three times whether he was 18 before their conversation turned sexual. Arrest papers did not indicate how or even whether the teen responded. The teen told police he performed a sex act on the priest, the afdavit states. Brown said he was not formally retained until Saturday afternoon, and did not see the criminal complaint against his client until Monday. He was alone in there, by himself, Brown said of Paulishs questioning by police. Terms of bail Paulishs bail was secured by real estate, court documents say, but the property in question was not listed. His address in arrest papers was listed as 450 Third St., Blakely. Lackawanna County detectives charged Paulish with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a person under 16, indecent assault of a person under 16, unlawful contact with a minor (sexual offenses), corruption of minors and indecent exposure. Paulish, who was serving as an assistant pastor at Prince of Peace Parish in Old Forge, was removed from that assignment and his ability to act as a priest was suspended by the Diocese of Scranton when ofcials were notied of the charges against him. In a letter read to parishioners in Paulishs former parishes on Sunday, Diocese of Scranton Bishop Joseph C. Bambera urged anyone who may have been involved in or may be aware of any abusive situation involving Father Paulish to immediately contact the Lackawanna County District Attorneys Ofce. Lackawanna County Deputy District Attorney Jennifer McCambridge on Tuesday said in an email that the case remains under investigation, and she was not at liberty to discuss any more details. We will continue to follow all leads, McCambridge said. Questions remain Diocesan ofcials also have declined to speak further on the allegations against Paulish, to explain why Paulish may have moved around so frequently and what prompted three leaves of absence two citing only medical reasons, and one for which no reason was listed. Bishop Bamberas practice has been to share a clerics assignment history following his removal from ministry due to an accusation of sexual abuse of a minor. As such, in the case of Father W. Jeffrey Paulish, in addition to issuing a statement about the matter, the diocese also shared the clerics assignment history and afrmed its commitment to cooperate fully with law enforcements criminal investigation into this very serious and disturbing matter, diocesan spokesman Bill Genello said Tuesday in an email to The Times Leader. In consideration of that commitment, and since it is an ongoing investigation, the diocese will not offer further comment until the investigation is complete, Genello concluded.

EXETER The Wyoming Area School Board hired a new superintendent Tuesday night while the rst negotiation session in nearly a month took place several miles away aimed at ending the teachers strike, now in its fourth week. The board voted 6-1 to hire Janet Serino, the current assistant superintendent, to lead the district for the next ve years at a starting salary of $113,065. Meanwhile, John Holland, chief negotiator for the Wyoming Area teachers union, met with lawyer Jack Dean, who represents the school board, at the union headquarters in Plains Township. Holland said a deal was not reached, but the two-hour session was fruitful. We made some progress, Holland said. We did not come to an agreement, but we have a run a few more things back to our respective groups. Dean said no offer was made, or could be made at

that session. We had a good and frank discussion about where they can go and where we can go in negotiations, Dean said. We didnt exchange ofcial offers, nor did I have authority to do so. Im going to brief the board on it. Dean said no additional talks were scheduled because he has to talk to the board rst, but that he and Holland are open to more meetings. Well be getting together again, Im sure. The teachers union has been on strike since Sept. 3, and before Tuesday night the two sides havent sat down since talks broke down on Aug. 29. The teachers contract expired in August 2010 and sides havent been able to come to an agreement since then. Several residents a the School Board meeting expressed frustration that strike is lasting too long and urged the board and the union to come to an agreement. Although not ofcially on the new job until April, Serino will be sworn in

today at noon by Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas Judge Thomas Burke. Serino, of Harding, will be the rst female superintendent in the history of the district. Wyoming Area is my alma mater, so to come back all these years later and be able to be the superintendent, I have to say Im very excited, she said and promised to work with current Superintendent Raymond Bernardi for a smooth transition. Serinos career in education dates back to the early 1970s. Serino received a bachelor of science degree in elementary education/ early childhood education from College Misericordia in Dallas Township and a master of science degree in school leadership from Marywood University in Scranton. She also has her superintendent certicate from Marywood. Her career started in the Wyoming Area School District as a summer school instructor and substitute teacher. In 1979, she started teach-

ing grades seven and eight at Sacred Heart of Jesus School in Dupont. She served as the schools principal from 1992 to 2001. When she moved to the Wyoming Area School District in 2001, Serino served as an elementary principal, the district elementary principal, the district principal of curriculum and assistant superintendent. Bernardi served as the districts top administrator since his appointment on Feb. 1, 2001. Bernardi earns $124,099 a year. In other business, and after some debate, the school board tabled a vote to lease a snow plow through the states COSTAR program. The 60-month lease was $760.99 a month for 60 months. Frank Pugliese, supervisor of buildings and grounds, urged the board to buy the truck now so it will be ready for the plowing season. Bob Trusavage of West Pittston, a taxpayer, urged the board to choose a better deal and even offered his research, which says the district can get a better price.

Former teacher union boss admits to embezzlement

Lisa Barrett has been charged with taking more than $30,000 in union funds

SCRANTON Former Wyoming Area School District teacher union president Lisa Barrett has been charged with embezzling more than $30,000 in union funds and has worked out a plea bargain with the U.S. Attorneys Ofce for the Middle District of Pennsylvania. The U.S. attorney issued a press release and led court documents

that include information outlining the charges, the plea agreement and a statement from Barrett. The plea agreement must be approved by a judge in the Middle District court. Barrett, a high school career technology teacher, resigned her position as union president and requested a sabbatical from work in February at the same time Luzerne County District Attorney Stephanie Salavantis conrmed her ofce had agreed to look into reports of possible missing funds. The U.S. attorney is charging Barrett, 48, with one count of embezzlement of funds of a labor

organization. The charge has a maximum penalty of ve years in prison followed by three years probation and a $250,000 ne, though any sentence is likely to be much lower for a rst-time offender. The plea agreement does not specify what the U.S. attorney might recommend if the agreement is accepted by a judge, but notes the ofce will recommend a reduction in the sentencing guidelines for the admission of guilt. A judge does not have to accept the attorney recommendation, or even accept the plea agreement. Pennsylvania State Education Association

Northeast Region Spokes man Paul Shemansky said the union had no comment other than to note Barrett is no longer a union member or a teacher and her defense was handled by her own attorney, Christopher Powell, not by the union. Shemansky also said the PSEA does offer training on managing money and that there are checks and balances to try to prevent such embezzlement. Barretts written statement led with the court is a series of acknowledgements that she understands the legal consequences of the plea agreement.

W-B Area deal struck on health insurance excise tax

W-B Area School Board, teachers agree to change language in new contract


WILKES-BARRE Wilkes-Barre Area School Board voted at a special meeting Tuesday to scrap language in the new teacher contract designed to avoid paying a hefty federal

Cadillac insurance tax, replacing it with a memorandum of understanding that board President John Quinn predicted will be a model of similar deals in other districts statewide. Getting an agreement both the union and the board could live with was necessary because both sides agree we dont want to see the district paying the excise tax, Solicitor Ray Wendolowski said. The tax, part of the Affordable Care Act, is a 40 percent levy on

any insurance plan where the cost exceeds a federal annual limit, initially set at $10,200 for individual coverage and $27,500 for family. Insurers must pay 40 percent of the amount spent above the limits, not of the entire insurance cost. The new teacher contract, approved at the Sept. 9 regular board meeting but never signed by both sides primarily because of this provision, initially said only that the two sides would try to negotiate any changes

needed to avoid the tax, but that if no agreement could be reached, the cost of the tax would be passed onto union members. The new memorandum requires both sides to meet a minimum of once a month for eight months beginning January 2017 to negotiate changes. If no agreement is reached, the issue would be submitted for binding arbitration, meaning a third-party arbitrator would review the last proposals from each side and craft a

compromise the two sides would have to accept. The excise tax doesnt take effect until 2018, and the new teacher contract expires Aug. 31, 2017, but Wendolowski said the new plan was crafted to avoid problems if negotiations for a new contract stall in 2017. The memorandum essentially makes avoiding the excise tax a separate negotiating item when its time to draw up a new contract. That eliminates the risk of having the excise tax kick

in while negotiations drag on. If a contract expires and there is no agreement on a new one, teachers work under the terms of the old contract until a new one is hammered out, sometimes for several years. By law, talks for a new contract must begin in January 2017. The memorandum allows either side to go to binding arbitration on avoiding the excise tax after Aug. 31, 2017, while any other contract items remain under negotiation.

Suit claims former county GOP chief owes $93K


Former Luzerne County Republican Party Chairman Terry Casey allegedly owes his former employer, M&T Bank, more than $93,000, while he contends the bank owes him income he never received. Casey, of Dallas, and M&T Bank are in the middle of civil litigation in Luzerne County Court. A copy of the lawsuit led by the bank in June 2012 was anonymously mailed to The Times Leader this week. According to the banks lawsuit, Casey in September 2010 entered into a written agreement with the bank regarding the terms of his employment

that paid him a base salary of $80,000 with a per-month minimum incentive of $9,794. Due to a banks payroll error, Casey was paid wages in excess of the agreed-upon salary Casey from November 2010 to February 29, 2012, the suit alleges. The suit alleges Casey was overpaid $93,909.81 during that time. Casey led a counter claim against M&T Bank that included a complex payment structure of salary and incentives. Casey states he was promised the $80,000 annual salary plus $9,794 in monthly incentive compensation that the bank

failed to pay. He further stated he was not paid for his nal days of employment before resigning from the bank on Feb. 29, 2012. Casey is president of Chancellor Financial Group based in WilkesBarre. He refused Tuesday to comment about the lawsuit, which remains unresolved in county court. Luzerne County Republican Party committee members voted to replace Casey as the GOPs county chairman in July 2012. Casey received 72 votes while Bill Urbanski was elected county GOP chairman with 79 votes. The chairman serves a fouryear term.

WILKES-BARRE City police are investigating a womans report that a man tried to lure her 15-year-old daughter into his car Tuesday morning near Forrest and Anthracite streets. The mother, whose name was not released, told ofcers her daughter was being followed by an unknown male at about 6:45 a.m. while she was walking to GAR Memorial Junior/Senior High School on South Grant Street. Wilkes-Barre Area Superintendent Bernard Prevuznak said a letter was sent home to the parents of students at GAR and nearby Dodson Elementary School on Jones Street informing them about the incident. Resource ofcers including district staff and police ofcers assigned to schools will be increasing their presence around the area before and after school at least until the end of the week, Prevuznak added. Police said the girl stated she heard a vehicle pull into a parking lot at the corner of Forrest and Anthracite, and its Hispanic driver asked if she spoke Spanish. The girl responded that she did and expected the man was going to ask for directions, police said. She said the male offered her a ride, which she declined. She said the male then told her he did not want to hurt her, he just wanted to give her a ride, according to a police report. The girl declined again and began to walk away,

but the man drove out of the lot and drove past her several times, she told police. When she reached South Sherman Street near Mayower Park, the man parked his vehicle in the parking lot of the Assembly of God Church on Stanton Street. She then called her mother, as the man got out of his car and began walking in the same direction as she was rst on the opposite side of the road, then crossing the street and walking behind her. The man eventually got back into his car and drove away, westbound on Stanton Street. Her mother then arrived to take her home, police said. The victim described the man as being about 5 feet, 3 inches tall, with a thin build, clean shaven, between 30 and 40 years old, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. She said the man was driving a gray Honda, possibly a Civic, but she was unable to obtain the license plate. Anyone with information is asked to call Wilkes-Barre police at 570-826-8106. Prevuznak said the letter sent to families reminds students and parents to always be aware of their surroundings. Weve always encouraged our students to walk to school with a friend or friends, he said. As well, Prevuznak noted district policy permits students to bring cellphones to and from school as long as they remain turned off during the school day because the devices can be vital in situations such as that reported this morning. We do have an incredible amount of walkers, back and forth, in all our schools, and (phones) have become a valuable security tool for families, he said.

Pakistan quake kills at least 39

Thousands of Pakistanis ran into the streets praying for their lives Tuesday as a powerful earthquake rocked a remote area in the southwest, killing at least 39 people and possibly creating a small island off the coast. The Pakistani military said it was rushing troops and helicopters to Baluchistan provinces Awaran district, where the quake was centered, and the nearby area of Khuzdar. Most of the victims were killed when their houses collapsed, according to the chief spokesman for the countrys National Disaster Management Authority, Mirza Kamran Zia, who gave the death toll. He warned that the toll might rise.

NAIROBI, Kenya The terrorists who took control of a Nairobi mall and held off Kenyan security forces for four days have been defeated after killing at least 67 civilians and government troops, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta said Tuesday. He said those killed include 61 civilians whose bodies have been recovered so far and six security forces, while about 175 were injured, including 62 who remain hospitalized. Three oors of the mall collapsed and several bodies were trapped in the rubble, said Kenyatta. His ofce later said a terrorists body was among those in the debris. Five other militants were killed by gunre, he said. We have ashamed and defeated our attackers, Kenyatta said in the televised address to the nation. He said 11 other suspects had been arrested; authorities had previously announced the arrest of seven at the airport and three elsewhere. These cowards will need

justice as well their accomplices and patrons, wherever they are, Kenyatta said. Kenyatta declared three days of national mourning starting today. At the Westgate mall, there were no immediate signs of the Kenyan Security forces closing their operation. Two Kenyan soldiers who had recently been inside the

mall told The Associated Press shortly before the president spoke that the operation was effectively nished, but they said security forces were still combing the facility and had not denitively cleared all the rooms inside. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were under orders not to speak to the media.

Kenyan forces had for two days said they were in the nal phase of the operation, only to be battled back by the militants inside the building. Explosions rang from the upscale Westgate mall in Nairobi throughout Tuesday, and the chatter of gunre from inside the building could also be heard. Fresh smoke rose from the building in the

afternoon. The Kenyan Red Cross had previously said 62 people had been killed, and it seemed certain that the number of conrmed deaths would rise as security forces search the building. Nairobis city morgue had already braced for the arrival of a large number of bodies of people killed, an ofcial said. Kenyan Red Cross spokesman Abbas Gullet said it was still not known how many more may be dead inside the building. It is certainly known that there are more casualties, he said. A government ofcial told The Associated Press that the morgue was preparing for up to an additional 60 bodies, though the ofcial didnt know an exact count. The government ofcial insisted on anonymity so he would not face retribution from government ofcials. Earlier Tuesday the al-Qaida-linked attackers used social media to give accounts of the ghting inside the mall that conicted with the government reports. There are countless number of dead bodies still scattered inside the mall, and the mujahideen are still holding their ground, the Somali rebel group al-Shabab said in one Twitter message considered to be genuine.

Six missing after flood found safe

The nal six people who were unaccounted for after massive ooding in Colorado have been found safe and well, authorities said Tuesday, but new spills were reported in water-damaged oilelds. Only one person remained missing and presumed dead. Eight deaths have been conrmed. It was a remarkable outcome after a disaster that damaged or destroyed nearly 2,000 homes, washed out hundreds of miles of roads and left many small mountain towns completely cut off. In the early days of the ooding, more than 1,200 people were listed as unaccounted for, but the list shrank quickly as people checked in after they were evacuated.

The court-martial of a U.S. Army general facing sexual assault charges has been postponed for a second time. The trial of Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair had been scheduled to begin at Fort Bragg next Monday. It was announced Tuesday that military Judge Col. James Pohl rescheduled the trial for Jan. 7 after a request from Sinclairs defense team. Sinclairs chief civilian lawyer, Rich Scheff, said the delay was over several issues that are still unresolved, including an appeal of Pohls denial of pretrial motions seeking to have the bulk of the case thrown out. The defense claims that President Barack Obamas public promises to pursue and punish sexual predators in the military put unlawful pressure on the Pentagon to bring criminal charges against Sinclair, despite what they contend is the weakness of the prosecutions case.

Court-martial for general postponed


UNITED NATIONS President Barack Obama opened the door to direct nuclear talks with Irans moderate new government on Tuesday, declaring diplomacy worth pursuing though skepticism persisted about Tehrans willingness to back up friendly overtures with concrete action. The roadblocks may prove to be too great, but I rmly believe the diplomatic path must be tested, Obama said during an address to the United Nations General Assembly. However, quiet negotiations over a possible rst encounter between Obama and Iranian President Hasan Rouhani on the sidelines of the U.N. meeting ended without an agreement for the two leaders to meet. It would have marked the rst time a U.S. and Iranian leader had met in 36 years. Senior Obama administration ofcials said the U.S. and Iran had been discussing such an encounter for days and the White House supported the idea. But they said the Iranians informed the U.S. on Tuesday that holding a meeting would be too complicated. The U.S. ofcials insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the deliberations publicly by name. Rouhani, a moderate cleric elected in June, was making his international debut late Tuesday with his own address to the U.N. General Assembly. Since taking ofce, Rouhani has launched a charm offensive with the West, calling for a new start in rela-

tions with the U.S. and declaring that Iran is not seeking a nuclear weapon. Rouhanis overtures have been welcomed by the White House, stirring up speculation of a meeting with Obama. However, Rouhani skipped a U.N. leaders lunch Tuesday afternoon, erasing the most likely opportunity to meet with Obama. The possible diplomatic thaw between the U.S. and Iran was being watched warily by Israel, which has long sought tough punishments against Tehran in retaliation for its nuclear program. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday warned that the world should not be fooled by signs of moderation by Rouhani. Iran thinks soothing words and token actions will enable it to continue on its path to the bomb, Netanyahu said. The U.S. and its allies have long suspected that Iran is trying to produce

a nuclear weapon, though Tehran insists its nuclear activities are only for producing energy and for medical research. Even without a meeting between Obama and Rouhani, it was clear that the U.S. and Iran were edging close to direct talks. Obama said he was tasking Secretary of State John Kerry with pursuing the prospect of a nuclear agreement with Iran. Kerry, along with representatives from ve other world powers, is to meet Thursday with Irans new foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif. If Kerry and Zarif hold one-on-one talks on the sidelines of that meeting, it would mark the rst direct engagement in six years between a U.S. secretary of state and an Iranian foreign minister. A spokeswoman for Zarif said Thursdays meeting indeed would mark the beginning of a new era in relations with the West.

Benedict defends his abuse record

Pope emeritus issues lengthy letter to well-known atheist
Associated Press

A family was on a drive and enjoying the fall foliage when a six-point buck ew through one side of their minivan and out the other, leaving them showered with glass and wondering what just happened, a member of the family said Tuesday. If my daughter hadnt been lying down in the back seat she would have been killed, said Chris Perry of Chateaugay, near the Canadian border. Her husband, 61-year-old John Perry, and their 16-year-old daughter were treated at a Plattsburgh hospital for minor injuries and released after Thursdays accident. Perry said the deer apparently leaped out of the woods and smashed through the rear windows on the drivers side, landed on the teen, and launched itself through the glass on the passenger side while the van was still moving.

VATICAN CITY Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI has emerged from his self-imposed silence inside the Vatican walls to publish a lengthy letter to one of Italys most well-known atheists. In it, he denies having covered up for sexually abusive priests and discusses everything from evolution to the gure of Jesus Christ. Excerpts of the letter were published Tuesday by La Repubblica, the same newspaper which just two weeks ago published a similar letter from Pope Francis to its own atheist publisher.

The letters indicate that the two men in white who live across the Vatican gardens from each other are pursuing an active campaign to engage non-believers. Its a melding of papacies past and

present that has no precedent and signals that the popes while very different in style, personality and priorities are of the same mind on many issues and might even be collaborating on them.

Benedict wrote the letter to Piergiorgio Odifreddi, an Italian atheist and mathematician who in 2011 wrote a book Dear Pope, Im Writing to You. The book was Odifreddis reaction to Benedicts classic Introduction to Christianity, perhaps his best-known work. In his book, Odifreddi posed a series of polemical arguments about the Catholic faith, including the churchs sex abuse scandal. The former Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger headed the Vatican ofce responsible for abuse cases, and was pope when scandal erupted in 2010, with thousands of people coming forward in Europe, Latin America and beyond saying they had been molested by priests while the Vatican turned a blind eye. In his letter, Benedict denies personal responsibility, saying: I never tried to cover these things up.

BEIRUT With the worlds attention on Syrias chemical weapons stockpile, international aid organizations and opposition groups are warning of widespread food shortages across the country. Save the Children said in an appeal released Monday that more than 2 million Syrian children could not obtain enough food, and activists told The Associated Press that six people have died of starvation in the suburbs of Damascus in the past days, including an 18-month old baby. Thousands of people are believed trapped in suburbs east and west of the capital Damascus held for months now by rebels ghting to topple President Bashar Assad. Regime troops are besieging the areas, and residents say food is increasingly difcult to nd. Rebels say they are trying to break the blockade. The suburbs, a major battlefront in Syrias civil war, were the site of the Aug. 21 attack that a U.N. report found included the use of the nerve agent sarin. They were home to more than 2 million people before the war, but it is unclear how many are there now. On Monday, the opposition Syrian National Coalition accused government forces of tightening their months-long siege. Assads forces are starving people to death in those areas, the coalition claimed. Famine looms in the horizon. In violence in the capital on Tuesday, a car bomb exploded in a Damascus neighborhood, killing at least three people, the government and activists said. State-run SANA news agency said the blast hit the contested district of Tadamon, which has seen months of ghting between the military and rebels seeking to topple President Bashar Assad. It said 11 others were wounded. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least seven people were killed and 15 were wounded. The difference in the death tolls could not immediately be reconciled. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, which comes amid raging battles between troops and rebels in several parts of the country.

PHILADELPHIA A training center inspired by canine rescue work on 9/11 is graduating its rst class of working dogs, some of whom will embark on search-and-rescue careers while others will serve as canine assistants to people with medical conditions. An excited yellow Labrador retriever named Socks was tted with a mortarboard and tassel at Tuesdays commencement ceremony at the Penn Vet Working Dog Center before going off to start her new job on the campus police force. Socks is among seven dogs in the inaugural class at the center, which opened in Philadelphia on Sept. 11, 2012. Cindy Otto, a longtime emergency clinician at the University of Pennsylvanias veterinary school, wanted to honor the animals that worked so hard after terrorists struck the U.S. in 2001. I spent 10 days at ground zero taking care of the working dogs there and recognized what an incredible gift those dogs are to our society and how important they are, said Otto, now the centers director. All 16 dogs currently being trained at the center are named for canines who served on 9/11. Donated by breeders, the pooches live in foster homes with volunteers who care for them while theyre not learning how to sniff out explosives, drugs or missing persons. Six other dogs who

graduated with Socks did not get mortarboards Tuesday because they are still awaiting permanent placements. But the pooches demonstrated their search skills on a manufactured rubble pile and their agility on an obstacle course. Ofcials said local police and re departments have expressed signicant interest in the remaining dogs, including a chocolate Lab named Thunder. The animals cost $10,000 each, with the money going to defray the costs of training. Thunder is denitely an urban search-and-rescue dog, Otto said. He is bold, he is strong, he has no fear on the rubble, and he will search like a machine, which is exactly what you want in a disaster setting. A more mellow golden retriever named Bretagne will likely become a diabetic alert dog, able to help detect when her owners blood sugar is getting low. And Socks, the rst canine member of the Penn police, has already started attending advanced bomb detection school, said Maureen Rush, superintendent of the campus force. Socks is way ahead of the game because of the great work thats been done already through the Working Dog Center, Rush said. Meanwhile, the second class of working dogs is training hard. Three have already put their noses to work in an ovarian cancer detection study.

Sherman Hills shooting suspect presses for release from jail




WILKES-BARRE An attorney for one of three men being investigated in the shooting of two girls at Sherman Hills last month wants prosecutors to le charges or release him. Taleek T. Sistrunk, 21, has been jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $50,000 bail since his arrest on Aug. 24 on a simple assault charge. City police allege Sistrunk is one of three men who assaulted several people at 91 N. Empire Court over a missing bank card, several hours after Janiya McFarlane, 5, and Gabrielle Morris, 2, were shot in Apartment 614 in Building 328 at Sherman Hills. Investigators linked Sistrunk, Jevaun Brown, 24, and Trevor Whitaker, 26, to the shooting with the discovery of a 1999

Dodge minivan with a tire on the roof. The vehicle was seized from the area of 510 S. Empire St., where it was found after the bank card ght.

Police allege one of the suspects in the shooting planned to leave the area in a van with a tire on the roof, according to search warrant afdavits.

No charges have been led in relation to the shooting. The two girls survived their wounds. Sistrunks attorney, Allyson Kacmarski, on Tuesday led a petition in Luzerne County Court seeking to have the simple assault charge dismissed. Kacmarski states prosecutors did not show good cause in their request to continue Sistrunks preliminary hearing, which was granted by District Judge Martin Kane on Sept. 12. Kacmarski said Sistrunk is guaranteed a preliminary hearing within three to 10 days of his Aug. 24 arrest. Assistant District Attorney Brian Coleman asked the preliminary hearing be continued because a witness to the simple assault case was not in the courtroom. Coleman told Kane that Sistrunk, Brown and Whitaker are being investigated for the shooting of two children at Sherman Hills.

Attorney: Woodlands has gone to extremes to ensure security


We dont offer gimmicks or gas cards...just highest cash paid plain & simple! We will give you more cash.

WILKES-BARRE The Woodlands Inn and Resort should not be held responsible for ghts among patrons who bring their bad blood to the resorts night club Club Evolution, the resorts attorney said in court papers led recently. In fact, the resort has gone to extreme efforts to provide property security by employing 18 well-trained security professionals, attorney Richard Bishop wrote. The resort on state Route 315 in Plains Township is challenging a decision by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board not to renew the resorts liquor license. County Judge Richard Hughes heard three days of testimony on the appeal in late July and early August. In response to the LCBs claims the resort failed to comply to a 2011 conditioning licensing agreement, Bishop said the resort has not been cited since the agreement was put in place in October 2011. The LCB required the resort to: Employ a minimum

of 14 security ofcers on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights; Maintain 44 surveillance cameras, provide exterior and interior lighting for surveillance cameras to record clear images, undergo gang awareness training; Separate the underage from those who are legally permitted to drink alcohol. Over the past several years the number of incidents at (resort) has decreased substantially and the Plains Township Police Department has not had any problems with (the resort) and respects the good work done by (the resorts) trained security professional, Bishop stated in court papers. During the hearing before Hughes, township police Lt. Richard Lussi testied the resort has been very proactive in trying to control any type of problems occurring at the property, Bishop wrote. Bishop stated the resort is one of the largest entertainment facilities in Northeastern Pennsylvania that attracts in excess of 1,000 customers on any given night.

With this large number of customers it is not unreasonable to expect from time to time a customer may get out of hand, but such situations are now comparatively rare and promptly resolved with a minimum amount of problems to law enforcement or to anyone else, Bishop stated. Bishop said there is no way to completely eliminate the possibility of ghts between customers who likely were drinking somewhere else before arriving at the resort. Bishop further stated the resort has never been identied as a nuisance bar and goes to great length at keeping a reputable reputation. Hughes is expected to issue a decision at a later date.

Tobacco companies claim the state inappropriately collected payments from a $340M-a-year settlement
Associated Press

Pa. to fight costly ruling in tobacco dispute

pute has drawn in the last three attorneys general and involves whether Pennsylvania appropriately collected payments based on the 2003 sales of certain tobacco products. Tobacco companies in the dispute agreed to a 1998 pact that requires them to pay states for the costs of health care for smokers, in exchange for protection from states suing the three companies that joined it. Pennsylvania gets about $340 million a year from tobacco companies as part of the settlement. Those companies that joined the settlement Philip Morris USA Inc., R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. and Lorillard Tobacco Co. then challenged whether Pennsylvania appropriately collected payments from the sales of products made by competitors that didnt join the pact. Pennsylvania could potentially have to ght over the collections in 2004 and later years, as well. A provision in the settlement entitles tobacco companies to a reduction if they lose market share to competitors that didnt join the agreement. Participating companies must prove the states didnt adequately enforce laws requiring those competitors to pay into escrow accounts in case of future litigation. Part of the dispute over 2003s collections stems from whether Pennsylvania is obligated to collect taxes on roll-your-own cigarette tobacco. The Attorney Generals Ofce maintained that the state had no law authorizing it to collect taxes on such a product when it signed on to the 1998 settlement and thus had no obligation to count it as part of what it should have collected from competing tobacco companies. However, the arbitration panel of three former federal judges seemed to think that Pennsylvania did have an obligation, and it called Pennsylvania the only state not to count escrow payments on roll-your-own cigarette tobacco. The judges then concluded that sales of rollyour-own tobacco made up 25 percent of the sales by competing companies in Pennsylvania versus a 2 percent national average. That, the judges said, suggested that Pennsylvanias departure from other states was unusual and not well justied. But King said no such testimony backing up that statistic on roll-your-own sales in Pennsylvania had been provided to the panel and unduly inated the potential award to tobacco companies.

First Deputy Attorney General Adrian King said the request to reconsider the Sept. 11 decision in a ght over enforcing payments from certain tobacco companies could be led as early as Tuesday or today.

You scream. I scream. We all scream for Yuengling?

The Associated Press

POTTSVILLE Consumers picking up a case of Yuengling lager might want to grab a carton of Yuengling chocolate chip while theyre out. The name linked to Americas oldest brewery is once again lending itself to ice cream. David Yuengling is resurrecting Yuenglings Ice Cream, an ice cream business started by his great-grandfather in 1920 to help supplement the brewerys revenue during Prohibition, according to the Republican-Herald of Pottsville.

The new company is unafliated with the Pottsville-based brewery. David Yuengling is a second cousin of brewery owner Dick Yuengling. The original Yuenglings Ice Cream later changed its name to Yuengling Dairy Products and added milk and cream to its product lineup before ceasing production in 1985. Over the years, people have always asked to bring it back and they say how much they loved it. The few people that we have told so far, everyone said its a great idea and wish we had done it long

ago, said David Yuengling, 51, who spent 30 years in the computer industry. The ice cream will be produced at Leibys Premium Ice Cream in nearby Tamaqua. It will come in 10 avors including black and tan, a chocolate and caramel mix thats a clear nod to the Yuengling beer variety of the same name. David Yuengling said it will be available by the quart in grocery stores in Pennsylvania and other mid-Atlantic states starting in March.

Corbetts welfare rule wont encourage work

The Corbett administration seems to have gured out how to deprive Pennsylvanias neediest families of welfare benets by throwing an utterly ridiculous and duplicative barrier in their paths. A new rule implemented by the states Department of Public Welfare provides a case study in how to undermine a program that you apparently dont think should exist. The rule says that before anyone can apply for welfare benets, he must ll out a form showing he has been turned down for three jobs. The rule suggests people applying for welfare may be too lazy to look for work. It also ignores that some applicants may be working, but not making enough to support their families. Why the administration even felt the rule was necessary is puzzling since welfare has had a work requirement since President Bill Clinton and Congress ended welfare as we know it in 1996. Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) rules require a person receiving benets to have a job, be in a job-training program, or search for a job under the guidance of caseworkers. So why is the state asking applicants to ll out extra paperwork, increasing the burden of an understaffed, slowpaced bureaucracy? Accusations that the true aim is to trim welfare rolls by confusing applicants isnt far-fetched. It seems to be happening. Since the job-search rule was put into effect last year, almost 80 percent of the people who applied for welfare have been turned down. That is a dramatic leap from the normal turn-down rate, which had ranged from 50 percent to 60 percent. Many applicants dont even know about the prequalifying work-search rule, so

they get rejected immediately. Its not wrong to want aid recipients to look for work, but the Corbett approach is counterproductive. Longstanding TANF procedures include an initial assessment to devise a plan to help an applicant nd a job or be trained for one. It also includes transportation and child-care assistance for the job seeker. Without those components to help a person become employed, Corbetts new rule certainly seems to be designed to discourage welfare applications. The government is supposed to help the poor get on their feet, not make people feel like losers by forcing them to nd their way through an application maze in which the ultimate goal seems to be failure. Perhaps the only way to see the prequalifying work rule as a good idea is if you have bought into the lie that most welfare recipients are lazy scammers exploiting the program. That same misguided thinking has House Republicans in Congress voting to cut $4 billion a year from food stamps. It also may explain why Corbett has put an equally dubious work rule in his proposed health-care program. But he has to know that welfare pays only $314 a month to a mother and child. No one is living the good life on such a tiny check. Corbett may not like welfare, or that too many families need it, but his job is to smartly administer the program so people dont become homeless while looking for work. The prequalifying work rule does little but add to a desperate familys suffering. It is an unnecessary rule that Corbett should strip from the books and do more to actually help aid applicants nd work.

Iranian reconciliation worth cautious attempt

Iran stands at the cusp of a new era in its relations with the West as newly installed President Hasan Rowhani addressed the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday. Rowhani is sending extraordinary signals about the need for a diplomatic reset after years of conict. President Barack Obama should proceed, albeit with extreme caution, to exploit this potential opening. Lots of topics, such as Syrias civil war, are up for discussion, but the core issue is Irans nuclear program, which the West contends is singularly focused on developing a bomb. Iran has long denied such plans but has repeatedly failed to honor treaty commitments to permit international inspections and be fully transparent about its nuclear operations. Bellicose threats from each side have only helped worsen tensions, particularly the talk of military action against Iran and calls by Rowhanis controversial predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, for Israel to be wiped off the map. The downward spiral of rhetoric removed almost all chances of a diplomatic breakthrough. Since his election in June, Rowhani has managed to silence Irans hard-line conservatives for the time being while working overtime to advance a conciliatory message to the West. Gone are the pronouncements of Holocaust denial that earned pariah status for Ahmadinejad. Earlier this month, a Twitter message using Rowhanis name wished Rosh Hoshana greetings to the worlds Jewish community. Last Thursday, Rowhani penned an op-ed column in The Washington Post calling for world leaders to lead in turning threats into opportunities and work together to end the unhealthy rivalries and interferences that fuel violence and drive us apart. In n interview with NBC News, he was emphatic: Under no circumstances would we seek any weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons, nor will we ever. Lets not forget what prompted this change of tone. A carefully orchestrated network of international sanctions, spearheaded by U.S. pressure, helped isolate Iran and deeply shook its economy. Iranians are tired of hardship and constant tension with the West. Iranian voters shift from Ahmadinejads extremism to the more soft-spoken tone of Rowhani reects a popular desire to do whatever Iran must to get the sanctions eased. A thaw is long overdue. Obama and Rowhani have exchanged letters. Theres even talk of arranging some sort of direct meeting between the two in New York. Any such encounter would be rich in symbolism, but what the world demands is substance in the way of full Iranian compliance with its international obligations. Theres no harm in talking, and theres little payoff at this point in deepening tensions with more bellicose pronouncements. But amid the cordiality, Obama should make clear that the sanctions relief Iran seeks will come only when Rowhanis kin words are matched with earnest deeds.

Barring some last-minute technical meltdown, the state will publicly unveil its new online School Performance Proles Monday, and you can expect copious coverage. But there are stories behind the scenes and in the periphery that are equally newsy. The surface stuff: SPP replaces the Adequate Yearly Progress yardstick that schools and districts had to meet each year. While AYP focused on the percentage of students scoring procient or better on math and reading tests, SPP looks at prociency in those and the state science and writing tests, the new high school Keystone tests, SATs, ACTS and other competency tests such as those taken by students at career and technical centers. SPP also puts a lot of stress on closing the gap between the percentage of students scoring procient and those scoring below procient. Schools will get a single building-level score. Theres even extra credit, a system that grants up to seven points for things like Advanced Placement scores. Acting Secretary of Education Carolyn Dumaresq gave media a preview in a web conference last Wednesday, now online: http://video. Click PDE podcasts, then Press brieng: School performance prole. The story beneath the surface: It should have been William Harner, not Dumaresq, giving the brieng. Just a few weeks ago, it was Harner serving as acting secretary, with everyone expecting him to get the post full time. He even showed up when Bear Creek Community Charter School held a press conference announcing a big federal loan for a new building. But Harner resigned abruptly Aug. 26 and fell off the political face of the Earth. What happened? No ones saying. But Philadelphia Inquirer Harrisburg Bureaus Angela Couloumbis reported

Hidden stories in latest ed reforms

Aug. 27 that three sources, under condition of anonimity, said that during his time running the Cumberland Valley School District Harner sent a male administrator an email allegedly asking him how he looked in a Speedo bathing suit. Couloumbis reports that the administrator was on vacation and led a Mark complaint later. Guydish Salacious? You bet. Stafff Relevant to Dumaresqs Columnist web press conference? Not directly, but worth pointing out. She was barely in the job that Harner had similarly barely been in when he resigned, and she was pitching the most dramatic change in the states education policies since No Child Left Behind itself. To her credit. she stuck well and effectively to her message about why this change made sense. The story on the periphery? Dumaresq gave her little presentation the day after the debut of education historian Diane Ravitchs latest book, Reign of Error: The hoax of the privatization movement and the danger to Americas public schools. While I havent nished reading the book as I write this, it is one of the most effective arguments against the types of education reforms being pushed by Corbett, including SPP. One of the reasons its an effective argument is the author. Ravitch rose to public prominence as a member of President George H.W. Bushs education cabinet. She spent years making the case for testing and accountability, but changed her tune recently, arguing the movement has been taken over and steered in the wrong direction by big business and big foundations such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation


that pour hundreds of millions into education reform, skewing those efforts toward the donors ideology and away from what works. Ravitch dubs it the corporate reform movement, heavily inuenced by prot mongers who see big bucks in all those standardized tests and the related need for new curricula, books, teacher training and student preparation and assessment programs. This Corporate reform movement succeeds by relentlessly insisting schools are in crisis, and that the only way to x them is to have more choice and less restrictive controls on the hiring and ring of teachers. But Ravitch argues and reality increasingly shows shes right that choice is code for privatization, either spending tax dollars sending kids to private schools or hiring private companies to run public schools. The transfer of public funds to private management and the creation of thousands of deregulated, unsupervised and unaccountable schools have opened the public coffers to proteering, fraud, and exploitation by large and small entrepreneurs, Ravitch writes in her rst chapter. Reign of Error has the potential and the intent to substantially reshape the debate on education reform. In Ravitchs view, the real crisis is the headlong rush to implement reforms that her data and she has a lot of it shows either are already proven failures or have no evidence they work at all. And while the new SPP system was not around when she wrote the book, I expect she would readily include it in her list of things that are simply wrong for our students.

Its well past time for citizens of the USA to politically revolt against our elected governing elite, or EGE. The EGE has mal-served our country for decades.

America is no longer respected around the world, agencies of our government are abusing and spying on us citizens, the national debt and decit have America on the brink of nancial collapse, and now Congress has exempted its members and their staff

members from Obamacare. Enough is enough! If your congressperson (1) doesnt deserve an A+ for service in Congress and (2) strongly support abolishing the IRS and (3) openly advocate replacing the income tax with the FairTax, you should work to defeat your congressman in the 2014 primary election.

We can have a new Congress if we are willing to do our part. All that is required of you is talk to your friends, neighbors and colleagues at work; then go to the polls on the day of primary elections and vote for change that really matters!

From page 1A There is no timeline for those decisions. It would be inappropriate to speculate on hypotheticals, NCAA president Mark Emmert said. For now, though, Penn State football and prospective student-athletes will benefit immediately from additional scholarships being made available. I am pleased that the NCAA is recognizing the important changes and reforms that the university has undertaken and will continue to make moving forward, Gov. Tom Corbett said in a statement. We are also encouraged that the NCAA shares our view that the primary purpose of athletic scholarships is to provide an educational opportunity for student athletes. To that end, Penn State will be able to sign a maximum of 20 players (up from 15) in its upcoming 2014 recruiting class before returning to the normal annual limit of 25 for the 2015 class. Concurrently, Penn State will be able to field a 75-scholarship team (up from 65) in the 2014 season. That overall scholarship number will increase to 80 for 2015 and be back to the normal 85 for the 2016 campaign.

Penn State remains banned from the postseason through the 2015 season. The program will be eligible for bowl games and the Big Ten championship beginning with the 2016 season. Penn State will continue to pay its $60 million fine in annual installments of $12 million. Wins by Penn State from 1998-2011 (111 by Joe Paterno, 1 by Tom Bradley) remain vacated. According to the NCAA, additional mitigation may be considered in the future depending upon Penn States continued progress.

We have to keep doing what were doing, which is working extremely hard to do whats right, Penn State head coach Bill OBrien said. When the rules changed a little bit, we adapted to those rules. The rules now are we can sign a few more guys and can get back to 85 scholarships a little bit sooner. We cant go to a bowl or compete for a championship, but we definitely can get more on an even playing field numbers-wise, and thats what were concentrating on as a staff.

Lions reversal It marks the start of a stunning reversal for the Nittany Lions, who were being discussed last summer as a candidate for the so-called NCAA death penalty complete suspension of the program for one season or more. Its important to remember this case has been handled in an extraordinary manner because of the extraordinary circumstances of the situation, Emmert said. That process began in June 2012

with the release of the university-commissioned Freeh Report, which concluded that Penn State administrators sought to cover up allegations against former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, who was ultimately convicted of 45 counts of sexual abuse of children. In July 2012, the NCAAs executive committee, comprised of university presidents from around the country, granted Emmert unique authority to sidestep the traditional enforcement process and impose the sanctions directly. Emmert said the Freeh Report served as a stand-in for the work that would normally be done by NCAA investigators. The Freeh Report, overseen by former FBI director Louis Freeh, has been the subject of intense debate ever since, with many critics arguing that its findings werent supported well enough. Over the last 14 months it has become clear to open-minded people that the Freeh Report is deeply flawed and the actions by the NCAA were precipitous and unjust, the Paterno family said in a statement on Tuesday. This action begins to correct the mistakes of the (Penn State) board of trustees, Mr. Freeh and the NCAA. The Paterno family remains involved in a lawsuit against the NCAA, seek-

ing to repeal the sanctions entirely, as well as restore the 111 wins that were stripped from Joe Paterno, who died in January 2012. Penn State culture That lawsuit takes particular aim at Emmert, who made repeated references to problems with Penn States culture when initially announcing the sanctions. On Tuesday, Emmert was asked if he saw a culture change in the past year. Ill refer to Sen. Mitchell for his observations about what has and hasnt changed in the university over the past year, Emmert said. Certainly the interest in seeing change behaviorally at the university was central to what the Athletics Integrity Agreement was about. And that Penn States fulfillment of nearly all of those requirements at this very early date has been a very strong indicator of the seriousness with which theyve taken this mission. Mitchell chimed in, as Emmert requested. Penn State has undertaken a major effort on the issue of culture, Mitchell said. This process is not in any way complete. So far theyve been very active, thoughtful and taken meaningful action.

From page 1A Prosecutors allege Grifth recorded three conversations: A July 2010 phone call with county pension fund ofcials and attorneys; An August 2010 retirement board executive session; A March 2011 phone call with Y. Judd Shoval, a member of the nonprofit CityVest board that owns the Hotel Sterling property in WilkesBarre. Last month the condemned structure was demolished after CityVest failed to secure a developer. Senior Deputy Attorney General Anthony Forray said his office was staying mute on a recommendation for Grifths sentencing. The misdemeanor charges carry a maximum of two years in prison on each charge. Grifth said nothing before being sentenced and did not respond to reporters questions after Tuesdays hearing. DAndrea said if Griffith was trying to hide something, he wouldnt have handed over the conversations to federal investigators and that Grifth wants to move on with his life and continue with his auto repair business in Nanticoke. He loved what he did and he could really over do it, DAndrea said. DAndrea said Griffiths actions were not malicious or harmful and that no real damage was done by Griffith recording the conversations. The county (has suffered) bigger black eyes that Ive been involved with, DAndrea said, alluding to other public ofcials being charged with corruption. This

From page 1A Senate Bill 76, if passed, would forever eliminate the antiquated and inequitable school property tax. Taxes on real estate constitute the main funding source for school districts, counties and municipalities. Gebhardt and her group say property taxes are unfair and contribute to residential foreclosures. They say by eliminating the tax and opting for higher income and sales taxes, revenue would increase and in a more fair manner. Senior citizens are getting hammered, said Charlie Urban of Kingston, a member of the group. And hardworking, middle-class families are getting hit hard. Support for bill Tom Dombroski of Trucksville, Gebhardts father, said 24 state senators are now supporting the measure just two short of a majority. State Sen. John Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township, said he was proud of the citizen lob byists who turned out. We have formed a broad, bi-partisan coalition with state grass roots

The Property Tax Independence Act will eliminate school property taxes across the Commonwealth and will replace those taxes with funding from a single state source. The act would introduce a modernized school funding method that is based on 21st century economic realities. The act would utilize in great measure the current sales tax mechanism to fund schools, restoring the original intent of the tax. The sales tax provides a predictable and stable funding source that is tied to economic growth. This is in clear contrast to the school property tax which is not based on economic growth and is subject to much variation. Current school spending regularly exceeds tax revenue and the act would address this problem head-on by limiting school budget increases to the rate of inflation.

griFFiths public career

november 2009: Griffith is elected controller. He had previously sought positions on Wilkes-Barre City Council and had been outspoken in a number of city aspects. January 2013: District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis says Griffith had illegally recorded conversations and supplied them to a grand jury investigating the Hotel Sterlings nonprofit owner, CityVest. May: Griffith is charged with three felony counts relating to three recorded conversations, violating a wiretap law. august: Griffith resigns from his controller post as part of a plea agreement. sept. 24: Griffith pleads guilty and is sentenced to three years probation. one will heal quicker. When asked if Griffith will seek election after his probation is over, DAndrea said public service is in his clients blood, but that it is possible Griffiths perspective will change on serving the public. Grifth must still face a civil suit filed by Shoval surrounding the recorded conversations. Shoval says in the suit Grifth recorded a March 29 telephone conversation without Shovals knowledge or consent. Shoval seeks damages for violation of the state wiretap law and invasion of privacy. Attorneys who were appointed to repre sent Grifth in the case recently filed court papers asking for the lawsuit to be thrown out. A judge has not yet set a hearing date or ruled on the attorneys request.

organizations to advance the simple idea that our students, our schools and our taxpayers deserve better than an archaic property tax system that can no longer adequate ly fund our schools, Yudichak said. State Rep. Karen Boback, R-Harveys Lake, said she has supported property tax reform for years and she is a cosponsor of House Bill 76. With people losing their homes across the state, now is the time to act on real reform, she said. State Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, said Tuesdays rally and other forums held recently are important to getting commitments from people

willing to work to get a bill to the governors desk. In addition to the elimination bills, there are proposals to freeze property taxes for senior citizens, so it is possible we will see action on that front as well. Other viewpoints State Reps. Phyllis Mundy, D-Kingston, and Eddie Day Pashinski, D-Wilkes-Barre, say the measure is flawed and has many shortcomings. The intent is noble and deserves careful attention to rectify the inadequacies of the bill, Pashinski said. Multibillion-dollar companies have the responsibility and the resources to pay their fare share. HB 76 would give

Wal-Mart, Home Depot and huge companies like these a complete pass on property taxes which would then pass the burden of higher costs back on the very people we are trying to help. The Pennsylvania State Education Association opposes measure. On its website, the PSEA states: The Property Tax Independence Act is a flawed piece of legislation that unfairly targets working class families, increases the tax burden on those who can least afford it and weakens your local schools. For these reasons, PSEA opposes this legislation and asks that you not lend your name or sup port to the proposal.

From page 1A County Correctional Facility for lack of $25,000 bail. According to the criminal complaint: Isaac initially told police he was shot by an unknown person on Blackman Street. Police were unable to nd a blood trail from Blackman Street to Isaacs residence. Police told Isaac they were investigating alleged threats made to his girlfriend. After being told of the investigation, Isaac refused to allow police to search his residence. A search warrant was obtained that allowed police to enter Isaacs residence, where blood spatter was found on the floor leading to the base ment, where a loaded .9mm handgun was found under garbage bags and a table cloth. Police said the handgun was reported sto len in 2011. A burnt marijuana cigarette and two plastic bags with pictures of teddy bears used to package marijuana were found in the residence, police said. After being Tasered, he allegedly told the two officers, Me and my family will be coming to get you with it (handgun). Isaacs girlfriend wrote in her PFA petition that he punched her several times after going onto her Facebook page on June 8. A county judge issued a six-month restraining order prohibiting Isaac from physically assaulting and harassing his girlfriend. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on Oct. 8 before District Judge Rick Cronauer in WilkesBarre.

But thats not entirely accurate either. Sure, Leblond wants to play, but he has more to show than just his penchant for ghting. For a guy like myself, Im labeled a tough guy, he said. But maybe I can get some penalty kill time in the preseason and that will lead to doing it in the regular season. Every shift matters and Im going to show them what I got. Leblond was signed to an AHL contract in the offseason after posting 98 penalty minutes in 33 games with Norfolk last year. After an extended stay in Pittsburghs training camp, Leblond was reassigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Sunday and practiced with his new team for the rst time on Tuesday. When he signed, it appeared that Leblond would split the enforcer duties with Steve MacIntyre. That changed on Monday when MacIntyre was claimed off waivers by Edmonton. Despite losing his potential enforcer partner, Leblond said nothing has changed with his approach. Macs a great guy and Im happy for him, but its still the same here, he said. Im here to do my job and we have to win games and have team toughness. With or without Mac, were going to have that. I know what I have to do. While he may be the only proven AHL heavyweight on the Penguins roster, Leblond certainly isnt the only player on the team capable of dropping the gloves. In addition to Payerl, McGrath and Johnson, last years team penalty minute leader Bobby Farnham also returned from Pittsburgh and skated on Tuesday. Leblond is happy that hes not the only guy who can provide toughness.

Leblond ready for preseason opportunity


Considering that Adam Payerl, Patrick McGrath and Chaz Johnson were teammates with PierreLuc Letourneau-Leblond during Tuesdays scrimmage, it wasnt likely that the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins new tough guy would have an opportunity to drop the gloves. And one might assume that Leblond is licking his chops to get into an exhibition game - perhaps tonight against Rochester, to put his stwork on display for his new team.

If its only one guy, what if Im not in the lineup or Im on the bench? he said. And its not about ghting, its about going into the corners and being stronger than the other guy. Winning battles and winning games, its good to have a team like that. NOTEBOOK The Penguins open the exhibition season tonight in Rochester against the Americans. They then play three more times in the preseason over the weekend for a total of four games in ve days. See LEBLoND | 5B

Penn State coach Bill OBrien (left) spent Saturday thanking the fans who stuck it out through a rainy day against Kent State. On Tuesday, the storm clouds began to part when the NCAA announced a reduction in sanctions.

Lions see light at the end of the tunnel


Not a week ago, Bill oBrien made one of the bolder statements of his tenure. If we had 25 scholarships to give, the Penn State coach said Thursday, it would be unbelievable what we could do in recruiting. The Nittany Lions are going to get a chance to nd out much sooner than expected. oBriens plan to pull Penn State out of the darkness of NCAA sanctions got an enormous shot in the arm Tuesday with the announcement that the programs scholarships would be gradually restored. It affects that plan immediately. Penn State had been planning for the past year to sign another recruiting class that was capped off at 15 because of the sanctions. Now theyll be able to sign 20 in February for the 2014 class in addition to any early enrollees in January. The 2015 class will be back to the

maximum 25 allowed scholarships that oBrien referenced. oBrien didnt have his normal afternoon press conference on Tuesday because the Lions have a bye week. But he still had his normal spot on the Big Ten coaches teleconference. I found out this morning that there was an announcement going to be made, oBrien said. Weve got a long way to go here at Penn State. Were happy right now for our players, our student-athletes that are here and our football program. Theyre a resilient bunch of kids. Penn State still has practices this week through Thursday. But with no game to plan for on Saturday, the coaching staff will take some extra time to adjust its recruiting strategy. Aside from the obvious advantage of getting to send out more offers, Penn State suddenly becomes a bit more attractive to top recruits who had written the school off because of the sanctions. oBrien said generally his staff didnt

have trouble landing top players once they got them on campus. Despite the massive penalties against the program, Penn States 2014 recruiting class started the week ranked 29th in the country out of 130 teams according to 247sports composite rankings, which average the rankings from several major recruiting services. The difcult part came with the numbers, oBrien said. For instance, say that you could only take one at suchand-such position say it was an offensive tackle. That was difcult that you were only going to be able to take one kid in the class for that position. That was tough. As far as recruiting, we always felt that from the day we walked in here that once we were able to get a young man and his parents here on campus, that the place sold itself. As far as just recruiting the individual athlete, that was never difcult here. Its just the See LIoNS | 5B

LEHMAN TWP. Just when Jean Lipski thought she had seen everything in her 33 seasons as Lake-Lehmans head coach, Crestwood came to visit. In their rst game on the black turf, the Comets were lights out. They scored six times in the rst 8:50 of play to post a 6-2 victory in what was to be a battle of two of the top teams in WVC Division 1-2A.

Ive never had six goals scored against one of our teams like that, Lipski said. I dont have any explanation. I told them in the timeout that they had to start playing or its

going to be 60-0. The defending state champions scored on their rst shot, and six of the games rst nine See CoMETS | 4B

NEW YoRK Matt Moore had New York ailing for ve wild innings, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Yankees 7-0 on Tuesday night to push them to the brink of missing out on the postseason for the second time in 19 years. Tampa Bay roughed up Hiroki Kuroda in tightening its grip on an AL wild-card spot with its fth straight win. Matt Joyce had a leadoff homer as the Rays jumped ahead 3-0 in the rst and David DeJesus had two RBI doubles. Tampa Bay has a one-game lead over Cleveland for the top wild card with ve to play. Texas and Kansas City played

later. The Yankees trail the Indians, who won 5-4, by ve games and also are behind the Rangers and Royals. The Yankees would be eliminated Wednesday if Cleveland wins or they lose. Moore (16-4) gave up only three hits but threw three wild pitches to up his AL-leading total to 16 and walked six. Jamey Wright and Jake odorizzi, who earned the save with three innings, nished the four-hitter that ensured New York could not pass the Rays in the standings. The defeat also gave the Yankees 75 losses for the rst time since they lost 86 games in 1992. The Rays got right to work

against Kuroda (11-13), tagging him for three more rstinning runs. Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon put Joyce in the top spot with hopes of getting him going. In a 3-for-41 slump coming in, Joyce connected on a 1-1 pitch for the Rays seventh leadoff homer of the season. Wil Myers followed with a single and DeJesus drove him in with a double to right eld. Evan Longorias sacrice y capped the inning. Kuroda has yielded 23 of his 77 runs this season in the rst inning. After that, the biggest mystery for the eerily quiet lateseason crowd of 43,407 was See YANKEES | 5B

Wednesday, September 25, 2013 PAGE 3B

From page 1B If we could have got some serves in, we could have had a really good ballgame with them, Gavin said. We shot ourselves in the foot with the serves, there is no doubt. We had spurts of good volleyball, and then, we made mistakes at critical times. The serves were the problem. We played two or three good points, then we would have an error on the serve. We were up at one point, and had another service error or missed a pass. Its inconsistencies that well go back and correct in practice. Tied at 20 in the nal set, it was Pocono junior hitter Mallorie Deschaine who took over. She took three perfect sets from senior Amanda Hall to build a 23-20 lead, and took advantage of two GNA errors to close the match. Pocono, coming off a three-set loss to Redeemer last Thursday, was led by Deschaines nine kills. Losses are going to happen, Summa said. You have to face the adversity and overcome it. Championship teams are built on how you bounce back from a loss. We did enough to win today. But if you want to be in a championship-caliber position, we have to play a lot better.

Oracle wins again

AP Sports Writer

Shaq shows Sacramento some love

AP Sports Writer

SAN FRANCISCO Skipper Jimmy Spithill and defending champion Oracle Team USA overtook Emirates Team New Zealand on the upwind third leg Tuesday to win their astonishing seventh straight race and force a winner-take-all nale in the longest Americas Cup ever. All but defeated a week ago, Oracle Team USA tied the faltering Kiwis 8-8 on the scoreboard by winning its 10th race overall. Oracle was docked two points for illegally modifying boats in warmup regattas. If it hadnt been hit with the harshest penalties in the 162year history of the Americas Cup, Oracle Team USAs sailors would be hoisting the silver trophy in victory. Instead, the epic 19th race is scheduled for Wednesday, weather-permitting, on San Francisco Bay. Either Oracle will nish one of the greatest comebacks in sports history or Team New Zealand, marooned on match point for the past week, will get the elusive win it needs to claim the Auld Mug for the second time in 18 years. Oracle, which trailed 8-1 last Wednesday, came from behind and passed the Kiwis after they tacked too early and slowed while zigzagging toward the Golden Gate Bridge. The American-backed boat with only one American on its 11-man crew sped past and built its lead to more than 1,000 yards on the windward fourth leg going past Alcatraz Island. The nal margin was 54 seconds. Spithill, a 34-yearold Australian who has been almost deant about his teams ability to rebound from the penalties, did a yby of Pier 27-29, with his crew lining the port hull to wave and pump their sts toward the crowd. Earlier, Oracle forced Emirates Team New Zealand into two penalties during the wild start of Race 17 and won by 27 seconds. The races were so pivotal that software billionaire Larry Ellison, who owns Oracle Team USA, skipped making a keynote speech before 60,000 people at Oracle Open World so he could witness the comeback rsthand from a chase boat on the bay. Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker dominated Spithill at the start and beat him to the rst mark with his 72-foot catamaran, allowing him to control the race.

Tiger measures up to player of the year

AP Golf Writer


ATLANTA Tiger Woods always has been measured against Jack Nicklaus and his 18 majors, and most recently Sam Snead and his 82 PGA Tour victories. Now hes being measured against himself. And its not a fair ght. The PGA Tour sent out its awards ballot Monday to those players eligible to vote. The winners are to be announced Friday. Woods should be a lock for player of the year, provided he is measured against the other four names on the ballot instead of the previous seasons when he won the award. He won ve times this year, and the only tournament that could be classied as a medium-strength eld was at Torrey Pines. Woods won two World Golf Championships, at Doral and Firestone. He won The Players Championship on perhaps his least favorite course on tour. And he won Bay Hill. The world ranking points he earned from those ve wins alone were more than any player has earned all year except for Henrik Stenson. But he didnt win a major, the very standard by which Woods measures a great season. And there was nothing particularly memorable about his wins, except that two of them were on a Monday and all of them were on courses where he had won before. In fact, Woods couldnt even remember where he won. It was a harmless oversight, but no less amusing, when Woods last week at East Lake put himself down for winning Memorial instead of Torrey Pines. Nice problem to have. Woods already has won the award 10 times. His record this year is worse than every season he won the award except 2003. So this has been a great season by any other comparison except with himself. Three of the last four winners did not win

a major. Luke Donald won in 2011 with only two victories, one of them at Disney. He also won the money title and the Vardon Trophy, and his win at Disney was one of clutch performances. Needing nothing short of a win to be the rst player with money titles on both sides of the Atlantic in the same year, he birdied the rst six holes on the back nine and shot 64 to do just that. Jim Furyk won in 2010 with only three victories and one other signicant trophy the FedEx Cup. Phil Mickelson won the Masters that year, but the other majors went to players who werent even PGA Tour members at the time (Graeme McDowell, Louis Oosthuizen, Martin Kaymer). Woods won in 2009 with seven wins and a sweep of all the other awards (Vardon, money title). To be sure, Mickelson and Adam Scott could have made a convincing case by winning the Tour Championship. That would have given either of them three wins, including a major and the FedEx Cup (Mickelson would have needed some help for the latter). But they didnt. One of the more famous sayings in golf is that the scorecard has only a number, not pictures. These are the numbers: Woods led the league with five wins. He won the money title by over $2 million. He won the Vardon Trophy for lowest adjusted scoring average. Scott won the Masters and The Barclays, which arguably has the strongest eld in golf. He nished in the top 5 at two other majors. Mickelson won the British Open and the Phoenix Open. He was runner-up in the U.S. Open. Stenson also is on the ballot with two FedEx Cup playoff wins and the trophy itself (along with the $10 million bonus). He nished in the top 3 at two other majors. Two great wins and zero majors dont cut it.

Matt Kuchar is also on the ballot, but only for balance. He had his best year ever with two wins. That will have to do. Adding pictures to the scorecard is the only thing that could change the vote. Mickelson came within a dimple of 59 in the Phoenix Open. He had the lead on the back nine at Merion and was runnerup at the U.S. Open for the sixth time. He bounced back to win the British Open the major not even Mickelson thought he could win with what his peers consider one of the greatest closing rounds in a major. It left him one leg short of the Grand Slam, though winning on a links course already denes him as a complete player even without a U.S. Open. Scott became the rst Aussie in a green jacket and he was leading the British Open on the back nine until making four straight bogeys. He was poised for a run at the Tour Championship until getting sick at the wrong time. Both are great stories. But did they have better years? Here are a few things to keep in mind. This is a vote of the players, and theres no telling how they dene the award. Best player or best year? Do they have an agenda? Is it a popularity contest? Still bafing is Rickie Fowler winning rookie of the year in 2010 over Rory McIlroy, even though McIlroy won at Quail Hollow, Fowler didnt win at all and neither reached the Tour Championship. Is it a sentimental pick for Mickelson, the greatest to have never won player of the year? Is there resentment toward Woods for how he handled the penalty given to him at Conway Farms for his ball moving? The tour wont release results, only a winner. And it wont reveal voter turnout. Most of these guys only pay attention to their tee times. One nal thought as it relates to Woods: If his record this year belonged to any other player, would this even be a debate?

SACRAMENTO, Calif. Shaquille ONeal spent the rst part of the century smashing Sacramentos dreams of an NBA championship. Now he wants to spend the next part doing anything he can to build the Kings into a winner. Declaring the new name of the city Shaqramento, ONeal began by taking steps in his size 22 shoes Tuesday to make amends to Kings fans for his past verbal swipes. The new minority owner of the Kings said he just wanted to rile up people and market the game when he called the franchise the Sacramento Queens while winning three titles with the Los Angeles Lakers. I apologize, ONeal said. If you see me around town, come give me a hug, give me a kiss. Ill do whatever you want. The 15-time All-Star center promised to use the same brand that bullied Sacramento for years to bring positive attention to Californias capital city. ONeals larger-than-life personality did just that on his rst day on the job. He attracted a crowd of about 75 reporters, with TV trucks ghting for the closest parking space outside Sacramentos suburban practice facility and about a dozen fans trying to sneak into the parking lot. ONeal said has no intention of being a silent investor. He wants to be a mentor to volatile center DeMarcus Cousins, give his input on basketball decisions and help the team build the NBAs rst indoor-outdoor arena. ONeal said he learned decades ago from Hall of Famer and friend Magic Johnson that endorsements are good, but you want to own stuff. He declined to reveal his stake in the team but said joining an NBA ownership group was always one of my dreams and aspirations, especially after retiring in 2011 after a 19-year playing career. New Kings majority owner Vivek Ranadive said he rst approached ONeal about joining his group after he swayed the league to keep the Kings from moving to Seattle and bought the team from the Maloof family in May. Ranadives primary partner, 24 Hour Fitness founder Mark Mastrov, is friends with ONeal. The two partnered in the past to build about 20 gyms, especially in South Florida during ONeals time with the Miami Heat. ONeal said he moved from Los Angeles and couldnt nd a place to work out at all hours and found Mastrov by searching his name on Google. Make no mistake: Shaq is a shrewd businessman, Mastrov said.

Notre Dame has knack for winning close ones

Associated Press

SOUTH BEND, Ind. Notre Dame has a knack for winning close games under coach Brian Kelly. Kelly attributes the ability of the 22nd-ranked Fighting Irish (3-1) to nish games to tough-minded players. I just think it happens over a period of time. When we rst got here, I dont believe that we were able to win some of those games. I think its just a matter of time, Kelly said. Were four years into our program. Our kids believe that if they prepare the right way and

they take care of the things that theyre supposed to do, that they have a belief. After starting 2-5 under Kelly in games decided by a touchdown or less, the Irish are 10-1 in such games dating back to a 15-12 victory over Pittsburgh a fourth of the way through Kellys second season in 2011. The lone loss was 18-14 to Florida State in the Champs Sports Bowl in 2011. The Irish, who face No. 14 Oklahoma (3-0) on Saturday, were in a close game with the Sooners a year ago. The Sooners tied the game at 13-13 when Blake Bell scored on a 1-yard run with 9:10 left in the game. But the Irish n-

ished with a 17-0 spurt in the nal 5:05 to improve to 8-0. Last year, they made all the plays down the stretch and thats what changed the game, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said. Its a 13-13 game with six minutes to go and they make all the plays in the end. Offensive tackle Zack Martin said its a mindset Kelly brought to Notre Dame, saying the 17-13 victory over Michigan State last week was the kind of game the Irish likely would have lost before last season. We nd ways to win football games, Martin said. Were always striving for that perfect game, but

perfection is not possible. We strive for that, but at the end of the day were winning football games. Kelly had similar success at Cincinnati, where he went 8-0 in his nal two seasons there in one-score or less games after starting 2-2. Even with the slow start at Notre Dame, Kellys winning percentage in games decided by a touchdown or less is .667. That is the best of any Irish coach since Ara Parseghian went 13-6-4 in such games from 1964-74. Knute Rockne was an impressive 19-35 in such games, going 15-0-2 in AP photo such games in the nal seven years Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly is held back by line judge Paul Engelberts of his 13 years as coach from 1918- after the bench was called for unsportsmanlike conduct during the second 1930. half of Saturdays game against Michigan State.

PAGE 4B Wednesday, September 25, 2013


From page 1B attempts at goal. The Comets (8-0 in WVC) kept Lehman (5-2-1) from gaining possession on the offensive side of the mideld stripe while simply churning into the Knights circle and ring away. One minute in, the Comets earn a corner. Ashleigh Thomas passes to Marissa Surdy, who blasts from the wing. Morgan Kile is in front for a perfect redirection. Just 1:23 later, Surdy has a reverse-stick shot on a corner swatted down by Knights keeper Tif Malinowski, only to have Crestwood draw another corner. This time, Surdy winds up and blasts a shot that clips a defender and hit the backboard of the goal. Ninety-one seconds after that, Casey Cole has a ticketed shot kicked away by Malinowski. Cole, though, springs to the rebound and lifts a shot into the top corner of the goal on the stick side, making it 3-0 Crestwood 4:06 in. Cole does it again, scoring her second goal 1:40 later on another corner. Surdy takes the injection pass from Thomas and looks to her left for Cole, who slips a shot stick side into the net. Less than two minutes later, Surdy gains possession in trafc in front of the Lehman goal and dishes a nifty backhand pass to Thomas, who pushes the ball home for a ve-goal edge. Eighty-six seconds had elapsed when Hannah Ackers moved to the middle of the circle and nds a deected crossing ball coming her way. She res a shot from point-blank range for a 6-0 lead. Well executed, Crestwood coach Elvetta Gemski said of the amazing start. And well supported by everyone on the eld. Its always the goal entering the game to start strong. Our passing was sharp and quick. I was very pleased with their level (of play) at the beginning of the game. The 51 minutes that followed were more of what was expected. Shots were 8-7 Lehman the rest of the way, while Crestwood enjoyed a 4-2 edge in corners called after the outburst. The Comets did go to their bench, but starters were also still rotated into play. All of them went in and performed their roles well,

Dana Maurizi worked a give-and-go with Nicole Chaiko for the first goal, scoring from the end line after sending the injection pass to Chaiko. Katrina Mikitish added a marker two minutes later on a blast from the top of the circle off the set up by Alexa Danko. Thats been a big area of emphasis, Hadzimichalis said of penalty corners. Before our last game, we hadnt scored consistently on corners all season. In the second half, Pittston Area enjoyed a 13-5 shots advantage to go with that 10-1 corners edge. Once we got down 3-1, we played like this wasnt attainable, Tunkhannock coach Ashlie Lewis said. They just couldnt get mentally back up. But we can take a lot out of this moving forward. The first half was much different, as the Tigers went step for step with the Patriots. On the fast grass in Tunkhannock, the Tigers posted 11 of the 18 first-half shots and earned eight of the 11 corners before the break. Pittston Areas Alana Platukus opened the scoring on a long rush up the right side. After receiving the ball near midfield, she charged into the circle and fired a 10-yard blast past Mary Sicker. Tu n k h a n n o c k answered on a corner, nullifying a great defensive play by Pittston Areas Julie Stella. Stella blocked the initial shot from the circle only

to have it go back to Tunkhannocks Haylee Underwood. A second shot by Underwood got to the front of the goal, where Maggie Sohns directed it home to tie the game in the 22nd minute. We knew they were a tough team, really aggressive to the ball, Lewis said. They are a really fast team overall, too. We just shut down (to start the second half) and couldnt recoup from that. Time just wasnt on our side after that. Emily Herron set up the game-winner with a long rush late in the first half. Herron sent a cross to the far post where Chaiko was waiting to tuck it home for the lead. Maurizi added a late goal for Pittston Area. Alissa Zamber and Elissa Stretch had defensive saves for Tunkhannock. Both goalies played well, despite the one-sided score. Lea Garibaldi of Pittston Area made 12 saves, while Tunkhannocks Mary Sickler had 11 stops.

The gurines were delayed by train and truck trouble in a cross-country journey, and the Yankees were forced to give out vouchers to the rst 18,000 fans entitled to one of the promotional gifts in tribute to the retiring closer. Alas, the bobbleheads arrived in the third inning. The Yankees bats didnt.

The Yankees were 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position overall. Kuroda settled down after the first and held Tampa Bay hitless until the sixth, when James Loney doubled with the bases loaded for two runs. Kuroda extended his winless skid to eight starts,

From page 1B Head coach John Hynes is happy to have so many games clustered together. Its nice because you can look at different players and see them in game action. It also gives you a better look at your depth pool, he said. For your main core guys, its about getting good reps and having a good idea how you want to start the season with your lineup. With Jeff Zatkoff in Pittsburgh and Peter Mannino still injured, the Penguins signed goaltender Jeff Deslauriers to a professional tryout agreement on Tuesday. The 29-year-old played for the Penguins in the 20062007 season, registering a 22-123 record and a .908 save percentage, along with career bests in shutouts (4) and goals against average (2.47). Deslauriers spent the majority of last season with the Fort Wayne Komets (ECHL), going 6-8-1 in 15 games with 3.25 GAA and a .902 save percentage. Hes a big goalie, has good experience and he stops the puck, Hynes said. He stops the rst shot and is hard to beat laterally. The Penguins now have three goaltenders in camp with Deslauriers, Andy Chiodo and Eric Hartzell. Hynes admitted on Tuesday that there is a goaltending competition between the three. We feel good about the group of goaltenders we have. We have depth, Hynes said. If Jeff (Zatkoff) was here you had your proven guy from last season. We dont have to be too concerned about the situation in Pittsburgh because we have three guys here who we feel can play. Theyre ghting for their careers and to be able to get into a starting job. Hynes said Hartzell and Chiodo will split time in net for tonights contest. Pittsburgh reassigned forward Tom Kuhnhackl and defenseman Harrison Ruopp to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday.

From page 1B numbers that were the difficult part. Though the Lions remain under a postseason ban, the NCAA acknowledged that too could be ended early given continued strong compliance by the university. Its an angle the coaches will be sure to mention as they visit more schools and more homes. Were obviously looking at it and studying it just like we did when the sanctions came out last July, OBrien said. It takes a while to digest everything and then to apply it to where youre headed. OBrien wouldnt get into specifics of his new recruiting plan and, given the circumstances, was very low-key about what he called welcome news during the call with media. That was almost certainly by design. Having made progress with the NCAA where none appeared possible, Penn State wasnt about to come across as overly celebratory, recognizing theres still a chance for further leniency. Instead, some of the most vocal trumpeting on Tuesday was done by OBriens peers in the Big Ten who have been sympathetic to what has been an unprecedented and bizarre situation. I think that whole (sanctions) thing is a bad deal, Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said. So hope fully some steps are taken to make it a little more fair. Ferentzs son, Brian, is currently on the Iowa staff and formerly worked as an assistant coach with OBrien with the New England Patriots. OBrien nemesis Tim Beckman the Illinois coach who sent most of his staff to State College to recruit players in the immediate aftermath of the sanctions said he was glad to hear of the reductions because more scholarships meant more opportunities for top high school players. That sentiment was echoed throughout the conference. Were all in this business to help kids out, Purdue coach Darrell Hazell said. Any time you can help some people out, I think thats why we do this. I havent heard many of the details, but Im happy for Penn State. Theyre able to get into a situation where they can help people out and not punish people who had nothing to do with what tragically happened in the past.

Burleson breaks arm in car accident

ALLEN PARK, Mich. Two days after a victory that for this franchise was downright historic, the Detroit Lions are facing another dose of adversity. Receiver Nate Burleson broke his arm in a single-car accident early Tuesday after he reached over to keep two pizza boxes from falling off the front passenger seat, authorities said. Coach Jim Schwartz stopped short of writing off the rest of Burlesons season, but surgery is scheduled for Wednesday. Its not an emergency surgery, Schwartz said. Natell be back at some point, and when he will, he will be a big contributor again to our team. Burlesons car hit a center median wall on a highway in suburban Detroit and he was taken to a hospital. Michigan State Police Lt. Mike Shaw said there were no indicators of alcohol on the scene or on Burlesons person after the crash at 2:25 a.m. The team didnt say which arm was broken. Burleson has a team-high 19 catches 10 for rst downs and his 239 yards receiving is second to Calvin Johnson on the Lions. The 11-year veteran had six receptions for 116 yards, his highest total since 2007, on Sunday to help Detroit win at Washington for the rst time in franchise history.

49ers move forward without Smith

AP Sports Writer


SANTA CLARA, Calif. Carlos Rogers understands a key piece of San Franciscos defense is missing with the absence of Aldon Smith, yet the veteran cornerback is determined to make sure it never becomes an excuse for the teams recent poor play. The 49ers are moving forward without their star linebacker and sacks leader as he begins rehab for substance abuse and an indenite leave from the team. He played in Sundays 27-7 loss to the Colts, but is gone now following his second DUI arrest in 20 months last Friday morning that also included suspicion of marijuana possession. Smith apologized Sunday night. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio has no idea how long Smith might be away, and that seems to be the case all around. I think its a distraction to whoever wants to think about it, to whoever

wants to pay attention to it, Rogers said Tuesday. When I get out there on the eld and play, Im thinking about playing whatever team, Im not thinking about Aldon and whatever situation went on with him. Were going to continue our meetings, were going to continue to go on the eld and practice, whether hes here or not. Thats the only thing we can do. For each individual, if you continue to worry about Aldon and let that be a distraction, let that say, Oh, this teams not going to be the same because Aldons not here, then it will be a distraction. While everybody in the locker room is rooting for Smiths recovery, his fellow defenders are now focused on getting the most from the guys who will take over for him: Dan Skuta and Corey Lemonier, among others. We believe hell be healthier, and not just as a football player but as a normal human being, and we wish him the best of luck, safety Donte Whitner said. But we believe that the guys who are going to back him up

Skuta and Lemonier theyre going to go in there and theyre going to do a great job. Everybody else has to pick up their play with Aldon not being out there. A defense that has been so dominant stopping the run in recent years suddenly ranks a surprisingly low 29th in the league, with opposing offenses running against the NFC champion Niners (1-2) at every chance. Weve let a couple of them pop, which we havent done in the past which skews the statistics, Fangio said. And weve been in games where theyve been able to hand it off a high amount of times. So, I think its a combination that we havent been as sharp and the type of games weve been in. Expect the St. Louis Rams to do more of the same Thursday night without Smith, and perhaps also fellow All-Pro Patrick Willis as he nurses a groin injury. And the 49ers will miss the menacing, swarming presence of Smith, who set a franchise record with 19 sacks last season.

San Francisco linebacker Aldon Smith walked off the field in uniform on Sunday for the last time in a while. Smith has left the team for substance abuse treatment.

Teen concussed after

fight at Candlestick
SAN FRANCISCO A teenage football fan suffered a concussion and a broken arm and nose at Candlestick Park after police say he was attacked during the San Francisco 49ers 27-7 loss to the Indianapolis Colts this weekend. The San Francisco Chronicle reported that a 29-year-old man was arrested Sunday on suspicion of beating the 15-year-old boy for urinating in the mans car. Reports of other assaults at the game were also logged with stadium security. 49ers season ticket holder Daisy Barringer said she was kicked and punched by another 49ers fan. The 36-year-old said she has seen violence at both home games this year, and during the preseason. Security was increased at the stadium two years ago after two shootings, a beating and ghts broke out during a preseason game with the Oakland Raiders.

Injuries adding up early in NFL

AP Pro Football Writer

Cowboys Spencer to have season-ending surgery

RVING, Texas Dallas defensive end Anthony Spencer will have season-ending surgery on his left knee and may have played his last game for the Cowboys. Spencers agent, Jordan Woy, says doctors have a good idea what type of surgery but were still considering options. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones spoke earlier on his radio show, saying Spencer was likely to have microfracture surgery. The 29-year-old Spencer is on a one-year contract with the franchise tag for the second straight season, so he will be a free agent when hes healthy again. Hes making $10.6 million this season. Spencer originally injured the knee in offseason workouts and aggravated it during a conditioning test the day before training camp. He had arthroscopic surgery July 25 and missed the preseason and the opener against the Giants. Last years leading tackler for the Cowboys returned and played more than half the game in Week 2 against Kansas City before he was sidelined again.

Indianapolis Colts sign a pair of linemen

INDIANAPOLIS The Indianapolis Colts signed defensive lineman Lawrence Guy and offensive lineman Xavier Nixon on Tuesday. The 6-foot-4, 318-pound Guy spent part of last season with the Colts but was waived in August during the nal cuts. Nixon, a 6-6, 314-pound tackle, had been on Washingtons practice squad. To make room for the players, Indianapolis (2-1) waived receiver DaRick Rogers and running back Kerwynn Williams. Rogers joined the practice squad on Sept. 2 and was promoted to the active roster on Sept. 19 when Indy was hit by a rash of injuries. Williams, a seventh-round pick, was on the practice squad until he was promoted to the active roster when Vick Ballard went down with a season-ending knee injury two weeks ago.

PHILADELPHIA Jeremy Maclin wouldve been a perfect complement to DeSean Jackson in Chip Kellys offense if he wasnt hurt. The wide receiver was one of four Philadelphia Eagles to tear an ACL in training camp. The Eagles really felt Maclins absence in last weeks loss to Kansas City. Jackson was held to just three catches after having 16 receptions for 297 yards and two touchdowns in the rst two games. We never look at it if we had Jeremy Maclin, its a different situation, Kelly said Tuesday. I dont think its productive to think about it that way. Its not going to change. Mac isnt coming back until next year. Several NFL teams face similar problems. Replacing important starters with capable backups often can be the difference between missing the playoffs and playing in January. Its not always the best teams that win in the end, but the healthiest ones with the most depth. ACL injuries are perhaps the most signicant because theyre season-ending and require a longer recovery time, but plenty of other body parts besides the knee are knocking players out of the lineup. Here are ve common injuries putting players on the sideline: ACL/KNEE: A torn anterior cruciate ligament used to be a devastating injury. Modern medicine changed that, and many players come back and perform at a high level. Check Adrian Peterson. Still, its a big deal because guys are out for the year.

Packers left tackle Bryan Bulaga, Chargers wide receiver Danario Alexander, Giants free safety Stevie Brown, Broncos center Dan Koppen, Colts defensive tackle Brandon McKinney and Dolphins tight end Dustin Keller were among those who tore ACLs in the summer. Since the season opener, Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey and running back LaRod Stephens-Howling, Colts running back Vick Ballard, Panthers guard Garry Williams and Bears defensive tackle Henry Melton joined the list. Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones, Lions running back Reggie Bush and Cowboys defensive end Anthony Spencer also have been sidelined by other knee injuries this season. CONCUSSION: Raiders quarterback Terrell Pryor had his best passing day before leaving Monday nights loss to Denver with a concussion. Its uncertain when Pryor will return, but his concussion isnt as severe as the one that ended the season for Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb. Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson, Packers tight end Jermichael Finley and running back Eddie Lacy, Eagles cornerback Bradley Fletcher, Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather, Panthers cornerback Josh Thomas, Bengals defensive end Michael Johnson, Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara, Chargers right tackle D.J. Fluker and 49ers safety Eric Reid are among those whove suffered concussions so far. HAMSTRING: Clay Matthews became the latest Packers player to injure a hamstring during a 34-30 loss to Cincinnati on Sunday. He joins safety Morgan Burnett, cornerback Casey

Hayward and fullback John Kuhn, causing coach Mike McCarthy to joke that the Wisconsin diet must be a factor for the teams spate of hamstring pulls. There are varying degrees of hamstring injuries. Falcons running back Steven Jackson already missed one game and could be out a few more. Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald played through his the past two weeks, but his production dropped signicantly. Eighteen players listed on last weeks injury report had hamstring injuries, including 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, Saints right guard Jahri Evans and Dolphins safety Chris Clemons. Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin, Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin, Vikings safety Jamarca Sanford and Jets running back Chris Ivory were added to that group over the weekend. FOOT: Chargers linebacker Manti Teo and Steelers running back LeVeon Bell still havent made their NFL debuts because of foot injuries. Bill safety Jairus Byrd also missed the rst three games with a foot problem, and Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon will miss two months. Broncos left tackle Ryan Clady went down for the season with a Lisfranc tear in his left foot, and Cardinals linebacker Lorenzo Alexander is out for the year because a torn ligament in his right foot. ANKLE: There were 22 players listed with ankle injuries last week. Falcons wide receiver Roddy White and Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew played through theirs, while Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen, Chiefs tight end Anthony Fasano, Colts safety LaRon Landry and Redskins tight end Fred Davis sat out.

Eagles back to practice after long layoff

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA After three games in 11 days, the Philadelphia Eagles got a break. Theyll return to face the undefeated Denver Broncos and record-setting quarterback Peyton Manning. Some break. The Eagles, off since losing to the Kansas City Chiefs last Thursday night, returned to work Tuesday with a full prac-

tice. I mean, thats just the way the schedule laid itself out, coach Chip Kelly said. We knew it going in. We had a plan of what we were going to do. Kelly and the staff met Friday and Saturday, took off Sunday and were back in Monday watching video and preparing for the Broncos, who beat the Oakland Raiders handily Monday night.

Outstanding performance, Kelly said. Offensively very difcult when you see the quarterback playing at that level right now. And hes got a lot of weapons. The Eagles will need to be at full strength to take on that offense. I got my body back fresh, linebacker Trent Cole said. I think we all needed a little break. We came off a tough loss, a game we should have

won, so it was good to get away a little bit. Now, were back and were ready to go. Quarterback Mike Vick followed two good performances with a tough game, in which he threw two interceptions and lost a fumble. It was very important to get some time off, Vick said. Everybody had the opportunity to look at their mistakes and think about the things that they didnt do as well.

PITTSBURGH Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is trying to keep things as normal as he can these days, believing routine and repetition will lead to a sense of comfort and he hopes success. Good luck with that. Winless in North America in 2013, the Steelers (0-3) will try to snap out of their funk on Sunday in London when they face the Minnesota Vikings (0-3). While Minnesota is already overseas, Pittsburgh will remain on this side of the Atlantic until Thursday evening. By the time the Steelers arrive in London, they will have less than 48 hours to overcome jet lag and try to turn around their season. It isnt ideal, Tomlin said, but it beats the alternative. I value normalcy in the early portions of the week from a preparation standpoint and from a practice standpoint use of our facilities, the comforts of home if you will, Tomlin said. Even if home isnt exactly comfortable these days. Pittsburgh is off to its worst start since 2000 after falling to Chicago 40-23 on Sunday night. While the beleaguered offense took a major step forward in piling up 458 yards the teams highest total in four years the Steelers also turned over the ball ve times. Ben Roethlisberger threw two interceptions and fumbled twice, with two of the miscues leading to defensive touchdowns. Its the kind of sloppy play Roethlisberger has generally avoided during his 10 years at quarterback. Then again, he isnt getting much help from the guys in front of him. The Bears stunted and twisted their way into the backeld all night, leading to what Tomlin called confusion that gave Roethlisberger little time to get his feet set and throw. All it takes is ve to 10 (breakdowns) to produce catastrophiclike results, and thats some of the things that are occurring, he said. Obviously, we need to strive for more consistency to minimize those things. A more productive running game would help. The Steelers actually took a signicant step forward against the Bears, rushing for a season-high 80 yards, including a 25-yard burst from recently reacquired Jonathan Dwyer. While it gave Pittsburgh condence it could run the ball, it didnt include any job security for either Dwyer or Felix Jones. Both gure to head back to the bench if rookie running back LeVeon Bell makes his season debut. Bell hasnt played since spraining his right foot in a preseason game against Washington last month. He has been cleared to participate in practice, and Tomlin is optimistic the second-round pick will be able to run onto the eld at Wembley Stadium on Sunday night.

Giambis walk-off blast keys huge Indians win

The Associated Press

CLEVELAND Pinch-hitter Jason Giambi belted a two-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a stunning 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. Giambi drove a 1-1 pitch from Addison Reed (5-4) into the lower deck in right field to save the Indians from a potentially devastating loss. Giambis shot bailed out controversial closer Chris Perez, who gave up two homers in the top of the ninth. As he rounded third base, the 42-year-old

Giambi slowed down before being engulfed by his teammates as the Indians celebrated their 13th straight win over Chicago. Bryan Shaw (6-3) came in after Perez had nearly given away a game the Indians couldnt afford to lose.
Blue Jays 3, Orioles 2

BALTIMORE Toronto eliminated Baltimore from the playoff hunt, using two clutch RBI singles by Mark DeRosa to beat the Orioles in 10 innings. Baltimores sixth straight loss, combined with Clevelands comeback win over the Chicago White Sox, left the Orioles six games

behind the Indians for the final wild-card slot with five games left. DeRosa singled in the tying run in the eighth inning and put the Blue Jays ahead in the 10th. Sergio Santos (1-1) worked a perfect ninth and Casey Janssen got three outs for his 34th save. Jose Reyes drew a oneout walk in the Toronto 10th off Francisco Rodriguez (2-1) and Munenori Kawasaki singled. Reyes appeared to be picked off second but was called safe, drawing Orioles manager Buck Showalter out to argue the call. Brett Lawrie then hit into a fielders choice and DeRosa singled to right.

Pittsburgh embracing playoff-bound Pirates

ST. LOUIS Cardinals rookie Michael Wacha lost his no-hit bid on Ryan Zimmermans ineld single with two outs in the ninth inning, and St. Louis beat the Washington Nationals 2-0 Tuesday night to close in on the NL Central title. Making his ninth career start, Wacha came about as close as possible to nishing off the third no-hitter in the majors this season. Instead, he became the third pitcher to have a bid broken up with one out to go. Zimmerman hit a chopper just over Wachas glove the pitcher said he thought it nicked his mitt and the ball bounced slowly toward shortstop. A charging Pete Kozma grabbed it with his bare hand and whipped a throw to rst that was a little wide, pulling Matt Adams off the bag just as Zimmerman arrived.

Freddie Freeman hit a y ball to deep center for the rst out before Evan Gattis, who had two hits, hit a grounder that Scooter Gennett bobbled behind second base for an error, leaving runners at rst and second. Brian McCann popped out to third base for the second out before Simmons rst hit of the night ended the game. Craig Kimbrel (4-3), who leads the majors with 49 saves, struck out the side in the ninth. He has 96 strikeouts in 65 innings.

Its the second triple-digit-loss season in Marlins history, joining the 108-defeat year in 1998. Mike Redmond, the rstyear Marlins manager, was a rookie on that team, playing in 37 games. Ruf drew a bases-loaded walk, Frandsen followed with an RBI groundout and that was all the offense that the Phillies would need. Michael Stutes (3-1) got the

CINCINNATI Daniel Murphy hit a three-run homer off Mike Leake, whose long streak of scoreless innings got shattered early, and New York beat Cincinnati, a costly setback to the Reds hopes of a second straight NL Central title. The Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates clinched playoff spots on Monday night, but hope to chase down the rstplace St. Louis Cardinals with closing surges. Leakes one very bad inning made that much less likely for the Reds, who opened the day tied with Pittsburgh two games behind St. Louis. Leake (14-7) gave up four runs and eight hits in only 1 2-3 innings, matching the shortest start of his career. Wilfredo Tovar ended his scoreless innings streak at 21 2-3 with an RBI single, and Murphys homer gave left-hander Jon Niese (8-8) the big lead.

PITTSBURGH The image is seared into 12-year-old Chad Rowlands memory forever. The slightly up the line throw up from Barry Bonds. The dive to the plate by catcher Mike LaValliere. The textbook slide by Sid Bream. The Pittsburgh Pirates walking off the eld in stunned silence after collapsing in the ninth inning of Game 7 of the 1992 NLCS. The Atlanta Braves piling on top of each other in jubilation on their way to the World Series. Even now, 21 years later, it still stings. You never love baseball more than when you were 12, Rowland said. I cried my eyes out that night. The tears were welling again on Monday night, this time for an entirely different reason. This time, the throw from the superstar outelder was wisely cut off by the veteran rst baseman picked up at the waiver deadline. This time, the catcher was positioned right on top of the plate. This time, the runner was out. This time, nally, the Pittsburgh Pirates were on

the right side of history. One of the sports most beleaguered to put it mildly franchises is back in the postseason. Pittsburgh clinched a spot in the NL playoffs on Monday night when catcher Russell Martin tagged out Chicagos Nate Schierholtz at home to end a thrilling 2-1 victory at Wrigley Field that reverberated in a bar 500 miles to the east, where Rowland let a generation of anguish and angst melt away. I was freaking out, Rowland said. He wasnt alone. At a time of year when the Pirates are typically playing out the string and attention in the self-dubbed City of Champions turns to the Steelers and the Penguins, the Pirates yes, the Pirates are currently the hottest thing going. A steady stream of fans poured into the teams store at PNC Park on Tuesday, many of them with cups of coffee in hand trying to fend off the effects of another late night in a season that has restored the faith of one of baseballs most tormented not to mention faithful fan bases. Rick Hilinski ducked in

Hilinski became a season-ticket holder in 2011, believing the hiring of manager Clint Hurdle and the emergence of talented center elder Andrew McCutchen were harbingers of the clouds nally parting. Hilinski remembers the good old days, when Roberto Clemente tracked down y balls

in the outeld at Three Rivers Stadium and Willie Stargell tried to hit home runs into the Allegheny River. The Pirates used to be postseason regulars back then. Between 1960 and 1992, the Pirates won three World Series and made the playoffs 10 times. Hilinski spent countless nights during his childhood sitting with his father and uncle hanging on every pitch. Now he does it with his son, who grew up doing karate because nobody really wanted to play baseball. Together theyve watched a renaissance decades in the making.

Consumer confidence takes hit from jobworries

WASHINGTON Americans condence in the economy fell slightly in September from August, as many became less optimistic about hiring and pay increases over the next six months. The Conference Board, a New Yorkbased private research group, said Tuesday that its consumer condence index dropped to 79.7 in September. Thats down from Augusts reading of 81.8, which was slightly higher than previously estimated. Consumers condence is closely watched because their spending accounts for 70 percent of economic activity. The September reading was only slightly below Junes reading of 82.1, the highest in 5 years. While condence has bounced back from the depths of the Great Recession, it has yet to regain a reading of 90 that typically coincides with a healthy economy. In September, condence fell on a dimmer outlook for the next few months. Lynn Franco, who oversees the survey, said that reected concerns about the job market and wages. Consumers were actually more optimistic about present conditions. While overall economic conditions appear to have moderately improved, consumers are uncertain that the momentum can be sustained in the months ahead, Franco said. Amna Asaf, an economist at Capital Economics, said she believed that higher interest rates and lower stock prices contributed to the drop in condence. But she noted that the survey concluded before last weeks decision by the Federal Reserve to make no changes to its bond buying program. That decision sent stock prices up and interest rates down. We suspect that if the rebound in equity prices is sustained, along with the drop back in gasoline prices, condence will rebound, she said. On Tuesday, the average U.S. price for a gallon of gas was $3.46, according to AAA. Thats eight cents cheaper than a month ago. Recent data suggest economic growth may be slowing. Consumers spent more cautiously in August as their income barely grew. And higher interest rates are threatening to slow home sales, just as many markets are starting to recover. The economy added 169,000 jobs in August, a modest gain but hardly enough to signal robust job growth. The U.S. unemployment rate fell to 7.3 percent from 7.4 percent. But the

Miners Bank now offers Small Business Administration (SBA) loans. Small Business Administration Loans make it possible to qualify businesses more easily and provide them with more exible terms than conventional loan options. The SBA allows higher loan to value ratios, in some cases, 100 percent nancing, and longer nancing terms with different payment options. To learn more about the SBA, visit In Luzerne County there is a Miners Bank in Hazleton and one opening in Conyngham later this year.

Oil falls near $103 a barrel

The price of oil fell for the seventh time in eight days, as the U.S. signaled a willingness to pursue a diplomatic path with Iran. Meanwhile, the average price for retail gasoline fell a penny to $3.46 a gallon. Benchmark oil for November delivery fell 46 cents to nish at $103.13 a barrel, the lowest close since July 30. Oil has dropped 6.7 percent since closing at a two-year high of $110.53 on Sept. 6. Some analysts said that a seeming thaw in relations between Iran and Western powers and apparent diplomatic progress over the elimination of Syrias chemical weapons were easing fears of a potential disruption in oil supplies.

decline was mostly because more people stopped looking for work and were no longer counted as unemployed. A weaker outlook for the rest of the year was a key reason the Federal Reserve decided last week to hold off on slowing its $85-billion-a-month in bond purchases. The bond purchases have kept longer-term interest rates low, making mortgages and other consumer loans more affordable. Many economists believe the Fed wont reduce the bond purchases until December at the earliest. The economy has been held back this year by tax hikes, federal spending cuts and weaker global growth. It expanded at an annual rate of 2.5 percent in the April-June quarter. But many economists say growth is slowing in the July-September quarter to an annual rate of 2 percent or less.

Carnival results affected by mishaps

Lingering images of passengers stranded at sea for days as toilets back up and air conditioners fail have been enough to keep vacationers away from Carnival Cruise Lines, even as the company continues to discount sailings. The cruise industry has mostly rebounded from the economic downturn but Carnival Corp.s namesake brand cant seem to shake a spate of bad publicity from earlier this year when three ships suffered mechanical problems and res. That, along with ongoing geopolitical fears in the eastern Mediterranean, is why Carnival said Tuesday that bookings for the next three quarters are below last years pace, even with lower pricing. The worlds largest cruise company now expects revenue to drop 3 percent in 2013, worse than its prior forecast. Shares plunged more than 6 percent in morning trading. Carnival has struggled to restore passengers condence following the February breakdown of the Carnival Triumph, which stranded passengers for ve days in the Gulf of Mexico. That was quickly followed by two other instances of ships having to be towed back to port.

Pork producer OKs Chinese takeover

AP Business Writer




on 7/17/2008

RICHMOND, Va. Shareholders of Smitheld Foods Inc. on Tuesday approved a plan to sell the worlds largest pork producer and processor to a Chinese company. The Smitheld, Va.-based company said more than 96 percent of the votes cast during a special meeting in Richmond were in favor of Shuanghui International Holdings Ltd.s $34 per share offer, or $4.72 billion in cash. The deal, which is expected to close Thursday, will be the largest takeover of a U.S. company by a Chinese rm, valued at about $7.1 billion including debt. Its

sale to Hong Kong-based Shuanghui comes at a time of serious food safety problems in China, some of which have involved Shuanghui, which owns food and logistics enterprises and is the largest shareholder of Chinas biggest meat processor. We will cease to be the company you saw in the past, Smithelds CEO Larry Pope told shareholders. This does not mean the company goes away, the company just enters into a new phase and a new era of its life. Smithelds shares rose to a penny to $33.99 in morning trading Tuesday, just short of the buyout offer. Smitheld Foods, whose brands include Armour,

Farmland and its namesake, was founded in 1936 and has grown to annual sales of $13 billion and has about 46,000 employees. Pork producers such as Smitheld have been caught in a tug of war with consumers. The company needs to raise prices to offset rising commodity costs, namely the corn it uses for feed. But shoppers are still extremely sensitive to price changes in the current economy. By raising prices, Smitheld risks cutting into its sales should consumers cut back or buy cheaper meats, such as chicken. In 2009, Smitheld Foods posted its rst annual loss since 1975, and lost money again in 2010, but has since rebounded.

KUNKLETOWN A movie shooting right now in the Poconos is part of a planned series of featurelength motion pictures that will carry the Zombie Killers tag in the title. Its part of the ever-growing genre of movies about the undead that seemed to gain life ironically enough in Pennsylvania when George Romero shot Night of the Living Dead in 1968 for a reported $114,000. Zombie Killers: Elephants Graveyard, started shooting this month in Eldred Township. Another entry into the genre with the tagline: A small community may be the last outpost of humanity in the wake of a plague that may not be new to world history. Guarded by a small band of young warriors, life and death. While written, directed and produced by former Pleasant Valley High School teacher B. Harrison Smith, the idea for the movie was gestating in the mind of a local businessman for years. I trademarked this three years before Walking Dead, said Jeff Trainer, a Lehigh Valley developer and Smiths backer. This isnt something that came up overnight, he said. I looked at World War Z. Our goal is to make stuff just as good a quality, Trainer said. As a scene was being

shot, veteran Hollywood actor Billy Zane, who stars in the lm, and his soldiers were coming down a ridge on ATVs. The actors, carrying military weapons, had Zombie Killers etched on the backs of their uniforms. Their duds looked like paintball gear. The world of professional paintball inspired Trainer to work on the story that combined the elements of paintball teams with prep for a zombie attack. Trainers son, Ian, is a professional paintball player for San Diego Dynasty. The Lehigh Valley teen has been playing professionally for years, and puts in practice at Camp Pendleton in California. The team gures into the lm. What I was trying to do was show how young ghters train to ght, said Trainer, who took early cracks at writing the story. Before getting involved with the zombie movie, Zane, who starred in The Phantom and Titanic, was in Washington shooting another independent project. He said he knows theres a lot riding on this little zombie movie with ambitions for sequels, mostly for Trainer and Smith. I thought it was a clever variation on a theme. Zombie movies are like the white label generic kind of cinema where you can put your brand upon any story you want imprinted upon it.

Partly rowdywith more than a chance of meatballs

Homemade desserts and entertainment are the highlights of this food-centric fund-raiser

Theres a place where you can get a spaghetti and meatball dinner and homemade dessert for a song this weekend. And that dessert should be just as sweet as the music that will come as a side dish. The place is Covenant Presbyterian Church in Scranton on Saturday evening for the Arcadia Chorale Annual Pasta Dinner. The singing servers of the Arcadia Chorale, formerly The Robert Dale Chorale, and their music director, chef Steven Thomas, will serve up songs along with dinner to raise money for the chorales 20132014 season. Many of the approximately 30 chorale members will chip in and make their special desserts to follow the meal. One of the highlights is a peanut butter cream-filled perfectly chocolate cake created by Patty Sherbine, a former chorale-board member whose husband, Bruce Sherbine, sits on the board. The cakes ingredients include Hersheys Cocoa, eggs and milk, and the peanut butter cream filling consists of heavy whipping cream and Reeses Peanut Butter Chips. Patty Sherbine and singer Kathy Shucosky said there will be a lot of chocolate cakes among the desserts, along with pies, puddings and brownies. While the spaghetti and meatballs are not homemade, the sauce will be seasoned specially for the dinner. We buy standard cans of sauce and add things to it to make it tasty, chorale member Larry Hickernell, one of the cooks, said. That means about six cans of industrial-size sauce will get a healthy helping of onions, spices, herbs and the meatballs. About 150 people will be fed by the six cans of doctored sauce, about 300 meatballs and 20 pounds or more of pasta, Hickernell said. The nice thing is lot of people who are in the chorale or on the board will make desserts, Hickernell said. A lot of supermarkets donate the supplies. Once the dinner is under way, the singers will both serve and entertain throughout the dinner.

Thomas described the mix of tunes, which hes still deciding on, as lighter-fare entertainment. The main focus, besides the food, is the individual singers, said the music director, who chairs the Division of Performing Arts at Wilkes University. There will be a lot of solos, Broadway and popular songs. Diners can stay a while after they finish their meal, too. People are welcome to stick around after theyre done for the rest of the show, Thomas said.

Blending the best of ginger and banana breads

The Associated Press

The great thing about quick breads also is the most obvious. Theyre quick. Stir together some ingredients, pop it in a pan, throw it in the oven. Your house will be lled with the fantastic smells of baking, and you probably didnt do more than 15 minutes work. This quick bread is no exception. It is equally at home on a breakfast or brunch table, served with coffee or tea mid-afternoon with a dusting of powdered sugar, or after dinner with a dollop of whipped cream. Weve combined the spicy fall avors of gingerbread with the sweet, moist avors of banana bread. For nutrition, we added some bran. For fun, we ecked it with chopped bittersweet chocolate. Be sure to use very ripe bananas for the best avor. CHOCOLATE BANANA GINGER QUICK BREAD Start to nish: 1 hour 15 minutes (15 minutes active) Servings: 16 1 cup buttermilk 2 eggs 1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil 6 very ripe bananas, mashed 1 cup packed brown sugar 1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup molasses 2 cups bran 3 cups all-purpose our

Jewish youth and community alliance visit St. Lukes Villa

Members of the Bnai Brith Youth Organization and the Jewish Community Alliance visited St. Lukes Villa of The Diocese of Scranton on the first day of Rosh Hashanna. The mission was to honor the memory of Larry Roth by blowing the shofar, a rams horn, to those who are home bound and cannot attend services. The shofar represents a wake-up call for personal improvement for the Jewish New Year 5774. The group shared a part of their day and mission with the residents, families and staff at St Lukes Villa. The program and visit was organized by Barbara Sugarman, Jason Cohen and Jeff Ross.

FRAZIER MOORE NEW YORK Ive always wanted one thing, says Wendell Pierce. To have a diverse career, to be a journeyman actor. Mission accomplished this fall. With no fewer than four projects in release, Pierce will meet himself coming. Earlier this month, he made his latest appear-

ance in a recurring role on the USA law drama Suits. He has a new film opening, an edgy indie drama titled Four wherein he plays a family man who keeps his homosexuality secret while he hooks up harmfully with a teenage boy through an online dating site. In December, he returns as fancy-free

jazz trombonist Antoine Batiste on HBOs glorious New Orleans series Treme, airing its final season. And thats all on top of Pierces dandy new role on The Michael J. Fox Show, which premieres on NBC at 9 p.m. EDT Thursday in a special hour-long edition. This, Pierce sums up proudly, is the diversity I

always wanted. On the new comedy, Pierce summons his rascally charm to play Harris Green, news director of a New York TV station and longtime pal of former anchor Mike Henry, played by Fox. Mirroring Foxs own real-life plight, Mike suffers from Parkinsons disease, but, after several years retired from the

anchor desk at home with his family, he is persuaded by Harris to return to work (just as Fox is returning to full-time acting after a dozen years of limited performances). Even though Harris sees Mike as his meal ticket (Guaranteed ratings! he crows when Mike agrees to come back), they are truly friends, and, reflecting that, Pierce and Fox have forged a chemistry that pops on screen. Pierce, who turns 50 in December, got into acting as a youngster growing up in New Orleans.

Teenage sister who is out of control needs her reins to be pulled tight
Dear Abby: Im 21, and my 16-year-old sister is out of control. She told me she smokes marijuana, drinks alcohol, abuses painkillers and does coke. Abby, she is beautiful, and I dont want to see her do this to herself. Shes living with me about an hour away from my parents because Dad is an alcoholic and he abuses our mother. I brought my sister here to get her away from all that because I know what it was like growing up there. Im having trouble giving her advice to stay away from those things because I did them, and I feel like a hypocrite. Please help. Trying to Be a Big Sis

ADVICE Dear Trying: Youre lucky you were able to straighten out without becoming addicted to any of the substances you experimented with, but your sister may not be so lucky. Because shes out of control, you MUST step in and put a stop to it for her sake. Your sister needs counseling, and if she is going to remain your responsibility, it is imperative that you assert control. Talk to her school counselor about getting her the help she needs. You may have to drug-test your sister on a random basis as a condition of her continuing to live with you. Kits are available at your pharmacy.

Stop feeling guilty, stay strong, and you may be able to steer your sister back on the right path. Dear Abby: Im a 23-year-old soldier in the Army, currently deployed overseas. Im less than a month away from returning home to my husband. However, I have not been faithful to him during my tour. I have had sex with several people over here, and if thats not complicated enough, I appear to be pregnant. I dont know what to tell my husband. I actually still kind of love him. Advice? Deployed and Pregnant Dear Deployed: You need to make certain you are pregnant and that this is not a false alarm. Whether you are or not, you have some difficult

decisions to make. While it wont be pleasant, you and your husband are due for an honest conversation upon your return. If you both still kind of love each other, forgiveness is possible, and couples have been known to get beyond this and have successful marriages. Dear Abby: The rule that white pants can be worn only from Memorial Day to Labor Day needs to be amended. I love my white pants. They go with nearly everything, and I almost cry when they must be stored away for another nine months. Ridiculous! My proposal would be to extend the grace period so it begins on Easter Sunday and lasts until Halloween. How does that sound? Marilyn in San Marcos, Calif.

Dear Marilyn: You will be delighted to know that according to Emily Posts Etiquette, 18th Edition, that old rule about wearing white no longer applies. Whats important isnt the color, but the weight of the fabric. Here in Southern California, summer can start late and continue through October. Lightweight fabrics such as cotton and linen are acceptable during hot weather, and when the temperature drops, winter whites in wool, corduroy, silk and satin are common.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Getting more information doesnt always clear things up. When theres little else to go on, youll use your intuition and instinct and get astounding results. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Because you have such a curious mind and a courageous spirit that makes you unafraid to follow your curiosity, your day will be made livelier by elements of mystery, glamour and illusion. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Its more stressful to be in the middle of opposing forces than it is to be on either side of the battle. Your most peaceful option is to retreat as soon as possible to a safe and neutral territory. CANCER (June 22-July 22). People who cant connect with themselves also cant connect with others. Try not to expect a deep connection with those who are ill-equipped and/or unable to make this happen. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Its important to do things the right way. Take the time to read all of the instructions or the map before you start an endeavor. Any shortcut you attempt is apt to make things harder. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You dont mind it when your path is cluttered with one obstacle or another. You see this as training for tougher times. This is only making you stronger for later when it will matter most. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A surge of raw energy will help you tackle big and small jobs. Burning some of it off in exercise will bring favorable results to your mood. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A person with horrible and abundant problems will be most effective in distracting you from your own, which pale in comparison. Suddenly the world wont seem so bad. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Dont you hate to get unsolicited advice? At least in todays case it will be something useful, though you will have to dig deeper and interpret to figure out its use. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You cant be too nice today. But who deserves your niceness the most? When people violate the rules of civility, you are being nice to the general public by calling them out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People who feel trapped are generally not as friendly as those who feel free. In other words, its easier to love your neighbor if you have something to do with the choice of where you live. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will address the how and the why of a problem, thoroughly going through the mechanics of each. The why will prove more important and will be crucial to the solution. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Sept. 25). Choose your next move carefully. The inspired action you take will help your family, but loveless labors arent worth the energy drain. You reinvent yourself in November and find a fresh income source. Reunions and new agreements happen in January. In February, youll focus on one talent and become an expert. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 19, 33, 27 and 41.
