Developer helped pay to renovate Nesbitt Memorial Stadium


Seminary takes Mericle name off field

KINGSTON A Wyoming Seminary eld recently named in honor of the Mericle family by the schools president will no longer bear the name. In a statement issued by Board of Trustees Chairman Richard Goldberg, the Executive Committee announced Wednesday the Mericle name will be removed from the renovated Nesbitt Memorial Stadium. Robert Mericle, who donated to the renovation, is awaiting sentencing in the county corruption probe after pleading guilty to a related charge more than four years ago. This decision was made after a thorough review of the current situation and after meeting with the Mericle family, who agreed to provide support for the stadium renovation project when approached by the school, Goldberg said in the statement. The schools president, Kip Nygren, made the decision to name the eld, Goldberg said. The initial decision to name the eld has detracted from the focus of Wyoming Seminarys mission, Goldberg wrote. This is a regrettable situation, and we Mericle apologize to anyone who has been offended by the naming of the eld. It was never the intention to show insensitivity to anyone; rather, this was a gesture to honor a family for its sincere support over a 20-year period. A dedication at the eld on Chestnut Avenue and Schuyler Avenue in Kingston that had been scheduled for Saturday has been postponed, with no new date yet scheduled. The board of trustees will be discussing other potential names for the eld. Mericle, Northeastern Pennsylvanias largest commercial real estate developer, has ties to the private school. He had served on the the schools board of trustees and his daughter graduated from the school in the spring. He funded and built the thennew eld hockey and lacrosse eld at See MERICLE | 12A

Bill aims to prevent student suicides

Law would require teachers to receive training

Remembering the victims

Health premiums will cost less in Pa.

Associated Press


Average of $286 a month for a mid-range plan is 10th-lowest out of 47 states, according to figures

HARRISBURG The state House overwhelmingly passed a measure to mandate suicide-prevention training for some public school teachers. A bill cosponsored by several area representatives including Gerald Mullery, D-Newport Township, Karen Boback, R-Harveys Lake, and Sid Michaels Kavulich, D-Taylor was passed 194-3 on Tuesday. It calls for all sixth- through 12th-grade teachers in the state to receive four hours of Department of Education-approved suicide awareness and prevention training every ve years. The training would be part of professional continuing-education requirements. While student suicide and by extension, bullying have been hot-button issues statewide in recent years, locally the matter has been at the forefront. Last year around this time, the region was reeling after two Pittston Area School District teens and one from Hazleton Area took their own lives separately during a one-week span. They were the third, fourth and fth teen suicides of the year in Luzerne County. And while most had been credited, at least in part, to bullying, those claims were never completely founded.

Are you Survivor material? Find out


An open casting call for series will be held at Mohegan Sun casino on Oct. 24
PLAINS TWP. Do you have what it takes to survive? CBS network afliate WYOU-TV will hold an open casting call for the hit reality show Survivor at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs on Oct. 24. Were very excited about this casting call, said Mike Bean, president and general manager of the facility, which has in the past hosted casting calls for other national programs, including the game show Wheel of Fortune. According to information on WYOUs website,, this edition of the long-running reality series will pit two teams of 10 castaways each against one another in the Caramoan Islands, a remote locale off the tip of a peninsula in the Philippines. Those 20 contestants will spend seven weeks in the remote setting, building their own shelter and nding their own food in a bid to win $1 million. All contestants must be at least 18 years old, although Alabama, Nebraska, Mississippi, Wyoming and the District of Columbia have higher minimum ages. Participants also must be U.S. citizens living in the United States, be in excellent physical and mental health, submit to a background check and may not be candidates for public ofce until after the initial broadcast of all programs in which they appear. Building shelter and nding food will be much more taxing than a trip to your local hardware store or supermarket, according to the eligibility requirements. Registration will be held 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the casinos Sky Bridge, with casting auditions to follow in the Seasons Ballroom. Eligibility requirements and applications can be found at or by calling Mark Prutisto at 570-706-7442.

HARRISBURG Pennsylvania residents who buy health insurance in the federally run online marketplace that opens next week will pay below the national average, and the state ranks 10th-lowest out of 47 for which data were available, according to gures released by the Obama administration Wednesday. The stage average is $286 a month for INSIDE a mid-range plan, not including out- Luzerne of-pocket costs or County tax credits that ben- towns et lower-income discuss families, the g- effects of ures showed. Thats health-care below the $328 law. 3A national average. Variables including income, family size, age, hometown and tobacco use could make the premiums dramatically different for people buying in the marketplace, also known as exchanges, which are a key part of President Barack Obamas signature health care law. Factoring in tax credits, a family of four in Pennsylvania with $50,000 in annual income will pay an average of $282 a month for a benchmark policy known as the second-lowestcost silver plan. It would cost $675 without the credits. A 27-year-old in Pennsylvania making $25,000 a year will pay on average $145 per month for the same policy, or $187 before the tax credit. The federal government is running Pennsylvanias marketplace because Gov. Tom Corbett declined to host a state-run exchange. A state Department of Insurance spokeswoman said Wednesday it was premature to comment on the gures See HEALTH CARE | 12A

Wycallis named Blue Ribbon school

Municipalities get primer onObamacare

WILKES-BARRE Insurance agent Britt Trumbower has a simple solution for small governments and businesses to weather the changes coming as the result of the federal Affordable Health Care Act. Drop health care coverage. Trumbower, owner of Small Business Insurance Services Inc., said that by guiding employees to seek their own health care coverage using online marketplaces, formally known as the exchange, administrators for groups between two and 50 workers can pass some of the health care cost savings on to their employees who also may be able to take advantage of federal subsidies. Sign-ups under the exchanges starts Oct. 1. At a dinner meeting downtown on Wednesday, Trumbower explained to a group of about 15 members of Luzerne County Association of Boroughs and Townships what to expect when the act, often called Obamacare, goes into effect Jan. 1. The federal health care insurance reform plan uses a tier system with platinum coverage offering the lowest deductibles with the highest premium at one end and a bronze plan keeping premiums down with higher out-ofpocket expenses at the other. In between there are gold and silver plans. A single person seeking coverage who earns $25,000 or less annually can buy individual coverage on a marketplace for about $144-per-month on the silver tier, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation online subsidy calculator. This could be useful in Northeastern Pennsylvania, where average wages are typically lower than other parts of the state, Trumbower said. Trumbower, whose rm is based in Bear Creek Township, how businesses will be affected if they buy employee coverage. According to his study: 1.4 percent of his clients will see a decrease when paying for employees health care. 6.8 percent will have up to a 20 percent increase. 46.3 percent will have a 20 percent to 50 percent increase. 45 percent will have a 50 percent or more increase, with about 10 percent of that group seeing costs rise by more than 100 percent. Speaking to the municipal leaders, Trumbower said pooling resources with other municipalities could result in a better rate, but that would call for conditions that might not be feasible. The governments would probably have to form a board of directors to administer the joint plan, limit their offerings to avoid complications and, most of all, theyd have to agree. Thats a lot of different groups to come together and agree on this, Trumbower said. Policies started before Jan. 1 are allowed to continue until they expire in 2014, so as long as a company or government renews its plan before the deadline, it can continue for at least another year to allow for more planning. Mary Susan Riccetti, Dupont Borough assistant administrative assistant, predicted an onslaught of problems in January and wondered why theyve received no support as the online markteplaces that start up Tuesday. I think a lot of people arent going to be able to do it, Riccetti said. Weve had no guidance on how to set it up. No nothing Im amazed. Trumbower discredited Republican efforts being made now in Congress to pull the rug out from under the act, signed into law in 2010, by de-funding it. I really dont think the defunding issue is going to hold water, Trumbower said.

Dallas School Districts Wycallis Elementary was one of only 15 schools statewide and the only one in the region to be named a Blue Ribbon school when U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan unveiled the annual list of schools honored for high academic achievement. Wycallis will be honored along with 235 other public schools and 50 private schools at a recognition ceremony in Washington, D.C., Nov. 18-19. This is the 31st year of the National Blue Ribbon Schools program. Wycallis was recognized in the high performing category.

Murder victims loved ones pause for remembrance

Times Leader Correspondent

Vigil held for murder victims

of some of the murdered family members frozen in time. A single ame burned in front shedding enough light to read their names and dates. Walling, with a shaky voice, said that after the death of her daughter, a friend recommended POMC. Walling said that at the time she was always crying and was having a difcult time coping with the loss. After reading the organizations website, she discovered her grief was quite normal. I know I drove one woman at their headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio, crazy, she said. But she gave me her email, work and home phone number. Through this interaction, Walling found her strength and a way to keep her Jamie alive in her heart. Walling ran a POMC chapter locally for four years. The group has ended, but she encourages anyone who has lost a loved one due to a murder to call her at 570-235-1029. You learn to take ve minutes at a time a day, then that turns into 10 minutes at a time, she said. Gradually, you learn to take each day hour by hour. Everyone grieves differently and she stressed to never let anyone tell you there is a time limit on grieving. Before lighting the candles, Walling told the group, there is no pill to take to stop the thoughts and the feelings that we feel. Memories are not enough, I want more, I want my Jamie, she said. I often wonder, What would she look like? Would she be married? Would she have children? Walling lit her candle and turned to lite the candle of Tammy Purpura of Lock Haven who had lost her three children, Justin, Jennifer and Jon, when her husband shot them in their heads.

KINGSTON Brian Keith Smith Jr. had just fallen asleep in a cell at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility when he was awakened early Wednesday afternoon. Kingston police wanted Smith on a warrant charging him with stealing two purses. Earlier Wednesday morning, Smith was arraigned on charges led by Edwardsville police on a string of purse snatchings and separate burglaries at the same house. Through the investigation of multiple purse thefts, we were able to come through with information and track him down, said Edwardsville police Sgt. Hal Bond. There are a total of four purse thefts, and an attempted theft in Kingston and a burglary of a home in Edwardsville. Smith was arraigned just before 9 a.m. by District Judge Paul Roberts on ve counts of theft, two counts each of burglary and criminal trespass and a single count of robbery led by Edwardsville police. Later in the day at about 1:30 p.m., Roberts arraigned Smith on

three counts of robbery and two counts of criminal attempt led by Kingston police. Bail on the seven sets of criminal complaints is $35,000. Police in the two neighboring municipalities allege Smith targeted people returning to their vehicles in shopping centers or outside banks who placed their purses on the passenger-side seat. He would then open the passenger-side door and swipe the purse, then drive away in a 1999 Buick, police said. I believe it would have continued to happen, Bond said, if Smith had not been captured. It happened yesterday (Tuesday), it happened three times in the past week and a half; I believe he would have come back. He has a drug problem, he told me. Heroin. Smith was arrested by Edwardsville police when a silver Buick was stopped at about 1:06 p.m. Wednesday. Smith was a passenger in the Buick, police said.

PLAINS TWP. Time does not heal all wounds, the desire to be with that person grows greater with time, Jim Kline said during a candle light vigil Wednesday night in memory of murder victims at the Plains Township Municipal Park. Wednesday marked the National Day Of Remembrance for Murder Victims, which was designated by the U.S. Congress in 2007, according to the National Victims Support Services. Gathering during a quiet part of the park, across from the pavilion, about 30 families and friends who have had daughters, sons, husbands or wives ripped from their lives by murder came together to help one another carry on one more day. Donna Walling, of Plain Township, organizer of the the event, also mourns her daughter Jamie Marie Walling, who was murdered on Oct. 5, 2000. Walling said this is the rst year that a vigil of this nature was held. As a founder of the local chapter of the National Organization of Parents of Murdered Children (POMC), she said the group used to hold a memorial at the courthouse with a slide show of their children. Jim and Rose Ann Kline of Nanticoke still grieve for their daughter, Melissa Marie Kline, who was 25 when she was murdered by her former boyfriend on Feb. 21, 2005. Jim Kline said he visits the cemetery one or twice daily. He said that when he rst heard of POMC, he reached out to Walling. It was really easy to talk with her, he said. We all share the same pain.

Pittston man charged with sexual assault of 4-year-old


PITTSTON A Pittston man was arrested Tuesday on sexual assault charges, and corruption of a minor, after he allegedly molested a 4-year-old. Eric Shields, 23, promised the child a chocolate bar if he performed an act sometime between December 2011 and August 2012, according to the criminal complaint.

Survivors struggle; quake toll at 285

Survivors built makeshift shelters with sticks and bed sheets Wednesday, a day after their mud houses were attened in an earthquake that killed 285 people in southwestern Pakistan and pushed a new island up out of the Arabian Sea. While waiting for help to reach remote villages, hungry people dug through the rubble to nd food. And the countrys poorest province struggled with a dearth of medical supplies, hospitals and other aid. The quake attened wide swathes of Awaran district, where it was centered, leaving much of the population homeless.


WASHINGTON Tea party conservative Sen. Ted Cruz ended his all-night talkathon to dismantle President Barack Obamas health care law after 21 hours and 19 minutes as legislation required to avert a partial government shutdown at midnight Monday easily cleared an initial Senate hurdle. Weary after a day and night on his feet, Cruz simply sat down at 12 noon EDT on Wednesday, the predetermined time for the Senate to adjourn, as several of his colleagues applauded. Senate Republicans and some House members congratulated the Texas freshman. Cruz actually joined every other senator in a 100-0 procedural vote to allow the measure

to ofcially be lain before the Senate. He says Republicans should rally against the measure in a vote scheduled Friday or Saturday on whether to cut off a libuster on the measure itself, a vote that promises to give Democrats controlling the chamber a procedural edge if Cruz is not successful in blocking them. Cruz wants to derail the spending bill to deny Democrats the ability to strip a defund Obamacare provision out, a strategy that has put him at odds with other Republicans who fear that the move would spark a shutdown. After the vote, Cruz told reporters he hopes that Republicans will listen to the people, and that all 46 Republicans come together. Coming into this debate we clearly were not united, there were signicant divisions in the conference. I hope those divisions dissolve, that we come together in party unity. He added: Otherwise, I will say this: Any senator who votes with Majority Leader

Harry Reid and the Democrats to give Majority Leader Harry Reid the ability to fund Obamacare on a pure 51-vote, party vote, has made the decision to allow Obamacare to be funded. The Senates top Democrat, Majority Leader Harry Reid, shrugged off Cruz effort. For lack of a better way of describing this, it has been a big waste of time, said Reid, D-Nev. Since Tuesday afternoon, Cruz with occasional remarks by Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and other GOP conservatives has controlled the Senate oor and railed against Obamacare. At 10:41 a.m. EDT Wednesday, Cruz and his allies reached the 20-hour mark, the fourthlongest Senate speech since precise record-keeping began in 1900. That exceeded Marchs 12-hour, 52-minute speech by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., like Cruz a tea party lawmaker and potential 2016 presiden-

tial contender, and libusters by such Senate icons as Huey Long of Louisiana and Robert Byrd of West Virginia. In a reection of the limited GOP support for Cruz effort, no members of the Senate leadership came to the Texans aid. Cruz said he has learned that defying party leaders is sur-

vivable, adding, Ultimately, it is liberating and that his long evening involved sometimes some pain, sometimes fatigue. But he added, You know what? Theres far more pain in rolling over. Far more pain in not standing up for principle.

Were ready to talk, Irans president says

Irans new president said Wednesday his country is ready to negotiate and has nothing to hide as world powers prepare to revive stalled talks over Tehrans disputed nuclear activities. Iran has agreed to meet with six world powers today on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly to try to restart nuclear negotiations that stalled in April. The West suspects Iran is trying to build a nuclear weapon, something Tehran has repeatedly denied. If there is political will on the other side, which we think there is, we are ready to talk, President Hasan Rouhani told editors in New York in a meeting on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly. We believe the nuclear issue will be solved by negotiation.

Sandy Hook 911 tapes to be released

The states Freedom of Information Commission on Wednesday ordered the release of the 911 tapes from last years shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, ruling in favor of an appeal by The Associated Press for access to records withheld by investigators. The recordings could shed light on the law enforcement response to one of the worst school shootings in U.S. history. The FOI panel accepted the recommendation of its hearing ofcer, Kathleen Ross, who last month rejected an argument from prosecutors that releasing the tapes could harm the investigation into the Dec. 14 massacre. Prosecutors said they would appeal the commissions ruling in Connecticuts courts.


WASHINGTON The Washington Navy Yard gunman did not target specic individuals when he opened re inside a building, killing 12 people, and was under a delusional belief that he was being controlled by extremely low frequency electromagnetic waves, the FBI said Tuesday. Records recovered from Aaron Alexiss computer and cellphone reveal paranoia and mental health problems that authorities are investigating as the root cause. Ultra-low frequency attack is what Ive been subject to for the last 3 months, and to be perfectly honest that is what has driven me to this, read a document agents recovered from Alexis after the shooting. He had also written my ELF weapon an apparent reference to extremely low frequency waves

on a shotgun he used in the rampage. Alexis, a 34-year-old former Navy reservist and IT contractor, used a valid badge to access the Navy Yard on the morning of Sept. 16 with a sawed-off Remington shotgun he had purchased two days earlier. He was killed by a U.S. Park Police ofcer following a rampage and shootout that police now say lasted for about an hour. Authorities say Alexis had only recently started his job, and that although there was a routine performance-related issue addressed to him on the Friday before the shooting, theres no indication that he targeted particular co-workers or was motivated by problems in the workplace, said Valerie Parlave, head of the FBIs Washington eld ofce. There is no indication that this caused any sort of reaction from him. We have not determined there to be any previous relationship between Alexis

and any of the victims, Parlave said. At the Pentagon on Wednesday, Deputy Secretary Ash Carter said the department will complete three separate reviews in late December, including internal and independent assessments of base safety procedures as well as the security clearance process.


Lawyer: Jackson made fatal choice

Syrian rebel groups ally, call for Islamic law

Split from the main opposition group fuels President Assads claim he is battling extremists
Associated Press

Michael Jackson died because of his own bad choices, not because of anything done by AEG Live, a lawyer for the producer of Jacksons comeback concerts told jurors Wednesday. Delivering his closing argument in the long-running negligence case by Jacksons family, defense attorney Marvin Putnam said the company did not know anything about Jacksons use of propofol as a sleep aid and did not hire Dr. Conrad Murray to be his physician for the This Is It shows in London. Putnam said Jackson and AEG Live both wanted the concerts to go forward but suggested the company would have pulled the plug on the tour if it had known Jackson was using propofol.


BEIRUT Nearly a dozen of Syrias powerful rebel factions, including one linked to al-Qaida, formally broke with the main opposition group in exile Wednesday and called for Islamic law in the country, dealing a severe blow to the Western-backed coalition. The new alliance is a potential turning point, entrenching the schism within the

rebellion and giving President Bashar Assad fuel for his long-stated contention that his regime is battling Islamic extremists in the civil war. The Turkey-based Syrian National Coalition the political arm of the Free Syrian Army rebel group has long been accused by those ghting inside Syria of being a puppet promoted by the West and Gulf Arab states supporting the Syrian rebellion. Wednesdays public rejection of the coalitions authority will likely be extremely damaging for its future in Syria, particularly at a time when the U.S. and Russia are pushing for peace talks. If the groups involved

stand by this statement, I think this could be a very big deal especially if it develops into a more-structured alliance instead of just a joint position, said political analyst Aron Lund. It basically means that some of the biggest mainstream Islamist forces within the so-called FSA are breaking up with the political leadership appointed for them by the West and Gulf states, to cast their lot with more hard-line and anti-Western Islamists, he said. The announcement came less than two weeks after the coalition elected an interim prime minister, Ahmad Touma, charging him with

organizing governance in opposition-held territories that have descended into chaos and inghting. In a joint statement, 11 rebel groups that are inuential in Aleppo province in the north, including Jabhat al-Nusra, which is listed as a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department, said they rejected the authority of the Syrian National Coalition as well as Toumas appointment. A video on the Internet showed Abdel-Aziz Salameh, political chief of the Liwaa alTawheed brigade that is particularly strong in the northern city of Aleppo, reading the statement.

NEW YORK Some malls around the world have been scrambling to add security guards to look for suspicious people following a deadly attack on a shopping center in Nairobi over the weekend. But for other malls, its been business as usual. The mixed reactions by malls across the globe isnt unusual in an industry whose security efforts vary from unarmed guards in most shopping centers in the U.S. to metal detectors and bag searches in places like Israel to main entrances that resemble airport security lines in India. The disparity offers a glimpse at why any moves following the Nairobi incident to increase mall security in countries that have less strict procedures arent likely to last: The industry continues to struggle with how to keep shoppers safe without scaring them away. No one wants, when you go shopping, to be strip searched, to be interviewed in a room by a security guard, said Simon Bennett, director, Civil Safety and Security Unit at the University of Leicester in England. That might be acceptable in aviation, but it is not in commercial retail. Security concerns come after 12 to 15 al-Shabab militants, wielding grenades, took control of Westgate mall in Nairobi. Terrorists held Kenya security forces for four days, killing at least 67 civilians and government troops and injuring 175 others. The Kenyan government said Tuesday that the attackers were defeated, with several suspects killed or arrested. In the aftermath, security was tight at the Junction Mall in Nairobi. In the U.S., the International Council of Shopping Centers, a trade group of shopping centers representing about one third of retail space globally, said the U.S. governments Department of Homeland Security is reaching out to corporate security at all malls. At the same time, the group said some of the malls in the U.S. and South Africa are beefing up private security personnel, while others are bringing in more off duty police ofcers. Mall of America, the biggest U.S. mall, added extra uniformed security ofcers and stepped up other measures, but ofcials at the Bloomington, Minn.-based mall declined to elaborate. We will remain vigilant as we always do in similar situations, said Dan Jasper, a mall spokesman. In general, U.S. malls focus on reacting to a shooting more than preventing one. Malls depend on private security personnel, most of whom dont carry guns, though they do work with local police. And while theyre trained to look for suspicious behavior and report that to authorities, theyre discouraged from intervening.

The Ford SUV was reported stolen by George Moses to the Wilkes-Barre Police Department on Sept. 9. It was taken from the area of 115 S. Main St. A witness on Sept. 11 reported seeing Andrew Chewey, 29, of West Poplar Street, Plymouth Township, driving the Ford in West Nanticoke, who said he got it from Mosley about three weeks ago. He stated Mosley took it to a scrap yard behind ABC Scrap Metal in Hunlock Township.

State police searched General Metals and Auto Parts Recycling behind the scrap yard and found the crushed Ford among other vehicles that Mosley had been crushed. General Metals owner Jason Tricarico told police he did not know how the Ford ended up on his property, the complaint says. Douglas Johnson, an employee at General Metals, identied Mosely as the per-

son who dropped off the Ford. General Metals accepted it without the title, state police said. Court records say Mosley is serving a one-year probation sentence that was imposed on Nov. 19, 2012, for retail theft and theft by deception. Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Mosley is asked to call Trooper John McGeary at 570-697-2000.

New Wyoming Area super sworn in

WILKES-BARRE A city man charged with shooting and killing another man after a fight between their sons entered a not-guilty plea at a formal arraignment Wednesday and will likely stand trial on a homicide charge in January. Shauntae Thomas, 36, is charged with the shooting death of Derrick Cottle, 40, in April. Thomas attorneys say he was overcome with the intense emotion after seeing his son beaten and lying in a pool of blood. Because of threats to him and his family, Thomas believed his actions were justified, his attorneys have said. Senior Judge Joseph Augello said a trial will likely be held the second or third week of January. WILKES-BARRE A lawyer representing a Plymouth Township adult entertainment bar filed court papers Tuesday asking that a lawsuit against the establishment be thrown out. The Getaway Lounge filed court papers through its attorney, Daniel Lynch, of Philadelphia, asking that at least one of the counts in the lawsuit be dismissed. Tuesdays court papers also say the bar denies any negligence on its part in the suit filed by Rachel Fincham Kaminski. Kaminski filed the suit last month stating the business knowingly gave her alcohol when she was drunk, causing her to drive drunk and ultimately strike a car headon. She and two others were injured. The suit seeks more than $100,000 in damages. According to the suit, Kaminski was at the Getaway Lounge on Nov. 26, 2011, and was drinking until about 11:30 p.m. The bar and an unnamed worker, identified in the suit as Jane Doe, continued to provide her with drinks even though she was visibly intoxicated, had slurred speech and was speaking incoherently, according to the lawsuit. Kaminski left the bar and tried to drive home, side-swiping several vehicles, driving on the wrong side of the road and causing a head-on collision. Kaminski had a blood-alcohol level of 0.301 percent, the suit states. A person in Pennsylvania is consider intoxicated with a BAC of 0.08 percent. WILKES-BARRE A Lycoming County man charged with sexually assaulting a teen girl pleaded no contest Wednesday to a related charge and was sentenced to three to 10 years in state prison. James Walter Zerby, 46, of Linden, entered the plea to a charge of unlawful contact or communication with a minor and was sentenced by County Judge Lesa Gelb. Zerby must register his address under Megans Law and appear for a Megans Law hearing where a judge will determine if he is a sexually violent predator on Nov. 26. Zerby was arrested by Newport Township police in May 2012 after the girl alleged he sexually assaulted her at a residence in Glen Lyon from 2003 through 2006. Zerby is known to the girls family. WILKES-BARRE A man charged with allowing gambling devices at a local pool hall pleaded guilty Tuesday to a related charge and was ordered to pay a $100 fine. David Walkowiak, 57, of Guys and Dolls Billiards on South Wyoming Avenue, Edwardsville, pleaded guilty to a summary count of disorderly conduct and was ordered to pay a $100 fine by County Judge Lesa Gelb. Walkowiak had originally been charged with a count of allowing gambling at the business, but prosecutors were agreeable to the disorderly conduct charge. According to court papers, in May 2012, an officer with the Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement found six video gambling devices in operation in the pool hall. Court papers indicate Walkowiak told police people playing the machines would receive a payout. WILKES-BARRE A Philadelphia man sentenced in July on charges relating to the May 2012 robbery of a Plymouth Township strip club has appealed his case to the state Superior Court. Kevin Williams, 31, was sentenced on July 8 to 10 to 20 years in state prison after being convicted by a Luzerne County jury in May of robbery, trespassing, theft, receiving stolen property and two counts of criminal conspiracy. Prosecutors say Williams and his co-defendant, William Gronosky, entered the Carousel Lounge on U.S. Route 11 in March 2012, pointed guns at the clubs owner and left with cash and other items.

Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas President Judge Thomas Burke administers the oath of office on Wednesday to the Janet Serino, of Harding, who will become the next superintendent of Wyoming Area School District when Ray Bernardi retires in April. Serino, 60, will be the first female superintendent in the history of the district. About 50 people, mostly Wyoming Area staff and family members of Serino, attended the event at the districts Secondary Center and were treated to a luncheon. Serino was sworn-in as the district is caught up in a nearly monthlong teachers strike.

Anti-snitchproblems worsen with Facebook

Erie County law enforcement ofcials are exasperated that witnesses to crimes refuse to divulge what they see, and criminals wont lead police to the masterminds behind their actions. Now we have insights into one powerful force thats scaring witnesses and intimidating our youth: Facebook posts that identify and castigate snitches. As Lisa Thomspon and Kevin Flowers reported on Sept. 15, at least three Facebook pages have been created with posts about the names and photos of Erie people believed to be cooperating with police. The pages used the name Jay Reed or some variation but disappeared after reporters tried to contact the creators. People criticized as snitches and family members were afraid to speak to reporters. The news story also followed the case of a 15-year-old robbery suspect who refused to tell Judge John Trucilla the name of the person who supplied him with marijuana. Jay Reed had frightened the teen enough that he would not speak up in court, even though his cooperation could have led to a lighter punishment. Assistant Public Defender Emily Stutz said her young clients are legitimately terried about the consequences if they cooperate with law enforcement. We understand why police, judges and Erie County District Attorney Jack Daneri are disgusted by witnesses who refuse to talk and fed up with criminals who clam up or change testimony at hearings and trials. There are no easy solutions to change the anti-snitch culture, which isnt unique to Erie. Facebook pages targeting snitches also popped up in Tacoma, Wash., and Jacksonville, N.C., in recent months. The Jacksonville page was quickly shut down after it was publicized. Curtis Speller, a gang and behavior specialist, told WCTI-TV that those behind the Facebook page were promoting crime, promoting punishment and taking the law into their hands. Law enforcement ofcials in Erie need to do more than wring their hands about the use of social media to frighten Erie residents. First, they must realize that the fear of retaliation against victims and cooperating criminals is real. What type of assurance can police provide to make sure that those who cooperate and their families stay safe? Police also need to understand the power of social media and, especially, the dangers of online bullying. . Law enforcement ofcials should also consider convening a diverse group of college students, especially those majoring in criminal justice, to talk about why the anti-snitching culture developed. Young people know risks and benets of Facebook and other social networking sites. Their expertise could help local ofcials nd ways to build trust in communities where not snitching is regarded as the golden rule.

Keep focus on better victim restitution

When someone is the victim of a crime, the impact can be physical, emotional or nancial many times, its all three. Every day, I talk with victims who were devastated nancially because of a crime someone committed against them. Some lose their jobs, their retirement savings, even their homes. Court ordered restitution is designed to help victims with the expenses they have incurred because of someone elses actions. And it is a right of crime victims. While most judges order restitution, too often victims receive very little of the money. One reason is that some offenders often have few resources and even fewer nancial prospects. Other reasons include the policies, practices and priority that the system places on the issue of restitution. In February, the Restitution in Pennsylvania Task Force released a report concluding that while restitution has been mandatory for most crimes since 1995, its one of the most underenforced victims rights. The Task Force report includes 47 recommendations that could greatly enhance Pennsylvanias restitution process and go a long way toward restoring victims. Some of those recommendations include creating consistent restitution collection programs across all counties, encouraging counties to dedicate staff to focus on collections and enacting legislation that would allow wage attachments for defendants who have the ability to pay, or who have been found in contempt for not paying restitution, costs or nes. It has been six months since the report was released and we do have some good news to report. Carol The Administrative Lavery Ofce of Pennsylvania Contributing Courts is developing a Columnist restitution bench book and other materials for the juvenile and criminal justice system. The Juvenile Justice Subcommittee is developing a victims guide to the juvenile justice system. The Board of Probation and Parole is now receiving quarterly court data that provides the amount of nes, costs and restitution owed per offender on state parole supervision. Dauphin County has assigned staff to work solely on the collection of restitution and Lancaster County is ling civil judgments. Legislation has been introduced to ensure that state lottery winners and recipients of state income tax refunds pay their restitution obligation. The progress that we are making is promising, but there is still more work to be done. Statewide, $434 million in restitution was assessed from 2010 to 2012, and $50 million was collected. While there are caveats to this raw data, it does demonstrate the enormity of unreimbursed losses to victims, as well as the potential for relief to those victims if successfully collected and paid. Other recommendations from the report need to be acted on. Each countys restitution policies and practices are vastly different. State and county agencies perform restitution functions with varying levels of attention and success. Resources and tools available to stakeholders are few. Communication at all levels is inconsistent. Offenders, too, benet from paying restitution. Research shows that offenders who pay restitution and who understand that the money is going to pay for their victims losses are less likely to commit another crime. It is critical that legislators and policymakers at the state and county level remain focused on changes that would improve the ordering, collection and distribution of restitution. Its good for victims, its good for offenders and its good for the community.

Obstruction is trumping logic in GOP budget fight

It appears that Republicans in Congress would rather shut down the federal government or breach the debt ceiling than make peace with a law that is making health insurance more accessible and fair for the American public. What a disgrace they are. Ordinary Americans desperately want to see their elected leaders pull together for the good of the country. Polls show they oppose defunding or dismantling the Affordable Care Act, especially if it means shutting down the government or defaulting on debt. But Republicans arent listening to the American people. They are tuned in to the roar of the tea party, which hysterically portrays the full rollout of Obamacare as the end of the world as we know it, and nds even the pain of a government shutdown to be a preferable alternative. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and his minions are wrong about that. A shutdown would be costly and traumatic. The two during President Bill Clintons time in ofce six days in November 1995 and a second, three-week-long stretch beginning about a month later cost the American people $1.4 billion. Nearly 300,000 federal workers were furloughed, and almost half a million essential employees worked without a paycheck. GOP members of Congress are callous about the hardship theyve already imposed on government workers with their misguided sequestration policy. The Republican-controlled House budget keeps sequestration in place, forcing continued pay cuts upon a sizable number of middle-income families. But elected ofcials will have a harder time ignoring the effects of a shutdown, which could include stalled benets for military veterans and delays in processing everything from passports to gun permits. What could justify such a disruption? In the awed logic of Republicans, the funding legislation that must be passed by Monday presents the last, best shot to upend Obamacare. Offering more evidence of their distorted view of reality, Cruz and his allies think a shutdown would persuade some Democrats to defund health care reform. Other Republicans hope to delay its implementation. None of that is going to happen. And funding for the Affordable Care Act would continue in the event of a shutdown. Away from the hysteria in Washington, states, businesses and families are preparing for the Oct. 1 opening of insurance marketplaces that will enable millions of Americans to purchase insurance policies without being penalized for being sick or older or female. Yes, there will be glitches. And yes, there are xes to be made in the sprawling health care law. But congressional Republicans arent interested in xes. Their fear is not that Obamacare wont work, its that it will, and Democrats will get the credit for bringing nancial and medical security to American families. After ve years of opposing the presidents attempts to transform the nations broken health care system, Republicans still have presented no serious proposal for making medical care affordable and accessible to all Americans. Their plan begins and ends with getting rid of Obamacare. What a sad group they represent. Congress used to be a place where people with deep political and philosophical differences came together and compromised for the good of the nation. Now obstruction for no rational reason is seen as the gold standard of performance. It isnt, and it never will be. But Republicans seem prepared to harm the nation before they learn that lesson.

W-B Rosary rally set for Sunday

The Knights of Columbus, combined Councils of the Wyoming Valley, will host their 37th annual Rosary Rally, this Sunday, September 29, 2013. The Rosary Rally will be at Our Lady of Fatima Parish, (St. Marys Church) 134 S. Washington St., Wilkes-Barre. The religious and laity alike are invited to partake in this prayerful event. A Rosary Procession, with the Pilgrim Virgin Fatima Statue, will begin at 2 pm from Holy Redeemer High School, 159 S. Pennsylvania Blvd., Wilkes-Barre. The faithful will continue in procession, praying the rosary, over East South Street, up South Main Street to Public Square, continuing over East Market Street, and down South Washington Street to St. Marys Church. Those who will not be in the procession are invited to go directly to the church by 3 p.m. Marion devotions will take place

That bill would allow school districts to swap their property taxes for an earned income tax on the wages of workers and a business privilege tax and/or a mercantile tax. Both of those taxes are similar to a regressive sales tax that penalizes the poor. House Bill 1189 would NOT tax income derived from capital gains, dividends and interest that are primarily the exclusive domain of the wealthy who would dearly love to have school property taxes on their estates and mansions lowered. Again, House Bill 1189 would benet the wealthy, but for the poor and working class in Pennsylvania, it would be a bad joke.

Tax bill benefits rich, not poor

House Bill 1189, the Optional Property Tax Elimination Act (OPTEA), which was developed by Seth Grove, a Republican state representative from the 196th District, benets the rich at the expense of the poor and working-class in Pennsylvania.

Immigration in focus

Mericle donations span manyyears

In addition to court-ordered fund to benefit children, developer has given millions to charity
court-mandated contributions. And there are donations in the past, like the December 1998 contribution Mericle made to the Greater Wilkes-Barre YMCA in memory of his father, Robert S. Mericle. The younger Mericle has served as a board member there and a pool bears the Mericle name. And there was a donation many years ago to the Junior Achievement of Northeastern Pennsylvania, who named a facility the Mericle Family Center for Enterprise Education. The food bank land was estimated at costing $1 million and he donated $2 million in land and construction costs toward the building of the Junior Achievement Center in Pittston Township. By all accounts, Mericle is self made. In 1985, Mericle founded Mericle Properties and began his career in commercial real estate. As a 20-year-old college sophomore, Mericle watched shoppers jam into department stores in search of the it item of the year, Cabbage Patch Kid dolls, and decided to get in on the action himself. Mericle called the manufacturer with an order for 10,000 dolls and eventually sold them all, pocketing $75,000. That launched Mericles two-year career in the toy business. Mericle distributed toys to stores along the East Coast for Mattel, Hasbro and other manufacturers. But he made a business decision to get out of the toy trade. It was too volatile a business for me, Mericle was quoted as saying in a 1994 Times Leader story. He liquidated that company upon graduating from college in 1985. At age 22, he purchased 15 Wilkes-Barre SHEENA DELAZIO

Developer Robert Mericle has donated to local organizations for more than 20 years, and he continues to do so even though hes pleaded guilty to a federal crime.

Case in limbo Much like the naming of the Wyoming Seminary eld, Mericles criminal case remains in limbo. Mericle pleaded guilty on Sept. 2, 2009, to withholding information on a crime for his role in the county corruption scandal. At his guilty plea hearing, Mericle admitted he paid $1.8 million in nders fees to former judges Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan for their assistance in helping him obtain a contract to build two juvenile centers. He has not been sentenced yet; he is expected to testify in the ongoing

case of former state Sen. Raphael Musto. Musto, 83, was scheduled to go to trial in November on charges he abused his position as a senator by accepting $35,000 and other gifts from a developer, identied by Mustos attorneys as Mericle. Mustos attorneys, John Riley and William Murray, led a motion seeking to postpone the trial, arguing Musto, who suffers from cirrhosis of the liver and other medical conditions, was too ill to assist in his defense. U.S. District Judge Richard Caputo denied the motions in October, prompting the attorneys

to le an appeal with the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. Appeal issues In the appeal, the attorneys argue Caputo erred because he ruled without holding a hearing, which prosecutors and the defense requested, to resolve differences in opinions by three medical experts who had examined Musto. One of the experts, hired by the court, said Musto was t for trial. But two others, including one hired by prosecutors, disagreed. That appeal is still pending and had been scheduled to be heard by a panel of judges Sept. 26.

Due to scheduling conflicts, the panel of judges said they will now accept court papers instead of holding a hearing before a decision is issued. In a related matter, Riley and Murray in November filed a motion seeking to dismiss one of the two counts included in second indictment filed last month because the offenses, which allegedly occurred in 2006, are outside the five-year statute of limitations. A few days later, Caputo granted a request to dismiss one of the counts, but ruled that four other counts against Musto will stay.

Health care
From page 1A released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, but noted that the information is still subject to change and only offers a few snapshots of what someone might pay. Under the 2010 federal health care law, uninsured Americans required to have insurance in 2014 or else pay a penalty will be covered in one of two ways. Also, insurance companies may not increase prices for preexisting conditions, or deny someone coverage because of one. Many people, ranging from lower-income workers to the middle class, will qualify for tax credits to help buy a private plan through the exchanges. The federal government will send the money for the tax credit directly to insurers, and policyholders will pay any remaining premium. One hitch in Pennsylvania is that it is likely that many childless adults and some others with incomes below 100 percent of the federal poverty level $11,490 for a single person will not be eligible for a tax credit or for Medicaid because Corbett and the state Legislature have not signed on to a Medicaid expansion that was envisioned by the 2010 federal health care law. A recent study by Families USA, a group that supports the health care law, said nearly 900,000 Pennsylvanians would qualify for a federal tax credit. Four levels of coverage will be offered on the exchange: bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Bronze plans generally have the lowest premiums but cover less while platinum plans have the highest premiums and cover more. If a 27-year-old Pennsylvania resident with $25,000 in annual income buys a bronze plan, he or she will pay $109 on average per month after the tax credit, $36 less than for a silver plan. A family of four earning $50,000 per year will pay $152, $130 less per month than for a silver policy. A silver plan covers 70 percent of medical costs, so policyholders will pay the difference up to an annual out-of-pocket cap.

From page 1A tragedy, when four Luzerne County teens took their lives in a week, Mullery said. Making teachers aware of the warning signs of suicide can help save lives. District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis got involved, schools brought in grief counselors and others to talk about the issue, and candle light vigils were held in several communities. Just this year, Salavantis kept the issue of bullying front and center by bringing in antibullying speaker John Halligan to 14 area high schools and West Side Career and Technology Center this month, as well as seven presentations geared for parents. But the House bill focuses on ensuring that teachers who interact with students are aware of the warning signs of suicide and protocols for how to prevent them. Salavantis on Wednesday thanked the House for taking up and approving the bill and said oftentimes teachers are poised to notice signs or changes in students behavior that could raise a red ag. She said four hours of additional training is a small amount of time compared to the lifelong pain caused by a suicide. Dave McLaughlinSmith, the superintendent of the Crestwood School District, said the bills requirements (sound) like a reasonable request. Cursory training in any health/safety/welfare issue is never a bad thing. With that said, initial identication/recognition training of the warning signs for all staff members might save lives, but increasing the knowledge base/skills set of our guidance counseling staff could be valuable tenfold, McLaughlin-Smith said in an email. Boback, who has experience as a legislator and a public school employee, has a unique perspective. As a mother and a former teacher, I feel that a school should be a safe haven for students. I cosponsored this legislation because, if passed, it would provide extra training that would enable teachers to recognize the signals of a student at risk of suicide, Boback said. The bill goes to the state Senate for consideration. State Sen. John Yudichak, D-Plymouth Township, said the bipartisan nature of the bill should help it receive quick consideration and said he will support it because any additional steps put in place to help prevent suicide is a worthwhile effort. When you recognize that 90 percent of these suicides could be prevented if the proper training was in place and the warning signs were recognized, Yudichak said, this helps the school districts, helps the teachers and most importantly it helps the students. If it becomes law, it would take effect during the 2014-15 school year.

with the NCAA starting to restore lost scholarships as soon as this Februarys signing class. Thats still months away. From the perspective of the coaching staff, theres still a 2013 season to worry about, starting with a game at Indiana on Oct. 5. I think it gives me a chance to talk to our team about sticking with it and taking it day-byday. Sticking together and being committed, OBrien said Tuesday. It doesnt have any effect on this year, so weve got to immediately get back to work on Indiana and try to improve on some things to compete in our Big Ten schedule the rest of the way. Today is denitely more about the future. Its about next year, and the year after and the year after that. It doesnt have much of an effect on this year. Thats the way we see it. Well talk to our team about it, but then well quickly move on to getting ready for Indiana. On Wednesday, Penn State players followed OBriens lead. I mean, we found out yesterday, and I guess were happy about it, defensive tackle Austin Johnson said. But were focused on nishing this year up and getting ready for Indiana next week. Even tailback Akeel Lynch, already one of the teams most upbeat and outgoing personalities, was all aboard the focus bandwagon. Obviously its positive news for Penn State as a whole, Lynch said. But were just focused on the bye week, getting healthy and preparing for Indiana the week after that. With the Lions focus this week clearly on, uh, focusing, it will take some time to take a true measure of what the NCAAs decision means to current Penn State players. For Lynch and Johnson both redshirt freshmen its a bit of vindication. As two guys who had just arrived at Penn State in June 2012, they didnt even have a full month to settle in before the sanctions hit, threatening to split the team completely apart. They both chose to stick it out. Im just happy with my decision, Johnson said. I was a man of my word. That summer, only one

Lions quickly getting back to business


Bill OBriens message was heard loud and clear by his players. The Penn State coach set the tone for his program on Tuesday in the immediate aftermath of the NCAAs announcement of reduced sanctions for the Nittany Lions. OBrien was positive but publicly subdued about the news that Penn State would be getting a reprieve

Penn State redshirt freshman running back Akeel Lynch could be one of several Lions benefiting from the NCAA easing sanctions on the program.

time in pittsburgh helps Megna


Yankees eliminated from playoff race

NEW YORK The New York Yankees failed to make the playoffs for only the second time in 19 years, getting mathematically eliminated Wednesday night during an 8-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. Evan Longoria homered twice as the Rays won their sixth straight and lowered to three their magic number over Texas for clinching an AL wild-card berth. Slowed by age and hobbled by injury, the Yankees (82-76) were chased with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning when the Cleveland Indians completed a 7-2 win over the Chicago White Sox. Despite baseballs highest opening-day payroll at $230 million, the Yankees failed to claim one of the 10 playoff berths.

We didnt get to where we wanted to get, manager Joe Girardi said after it was over. Since starting the latest run of success in 1995, New York had missed the playoffs only in 2008 when the team bid goodbye to old Yankee Stadium. This time, the Yankees are saying goodbye to Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte, who are retiring when the season ends Sunday. Before a quiet crowd of 37,260, the Yankees lost for the eighth time in 11 games and were eliminated from contention for a playoff berth on their own eld for the rst time since 1991. Fans gure to be more exuberant during Thursday nights home nale, when Rivera likely will make his nal Yankee Stadium appearance. David Price (9-8) ended a ve-start winless streak,

one shy of his career worst, and Longoria drove in four runs. Price allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings with eight strikeouts and no walks. Longoria hit a three-run homer in the sixth off David Huff, and David DeJesus hit his second of the season on the next pitch. Longoria homered in the ninth off Preston Claiborne, his 31st of the season and ninth in 18 games this year against the Yankees. Phil Hughes (4-14) allowed three runs and seven hits in two innings-plus, walking slowly to the dugout and looking up to the stands when he was removed from what likely was his nal start with the Yankees.

Jayson Megna has the same goal this season as he had last year, only its a little more clearer. Even though he was a rookie last season, Megnas goal, like any player in the AHL, was to make the NHL. With Pittsburghs depth at forward, Jayson Megna Megna never got to suit up for the parent club, but its clear he has caught their attention. The 23-year-old had an impressive rookie tournament in the offseason and replicated that performance during his time in Pittsburghs training camp. He survived the rst round of cuts before being reassigned on Sunday, and after having spent a few weeks around the NHL club, Megna has a better idea of what hes after. They play the game at the highest level in the world, so when you get a little taste of that it ups your own game, Megna said. It was a great experience up there and Im denitely coming in with a little more condence. And ready to work. Last season, Megna showed ashes of his offensive prowess and also struggled at times as he transitioned from from college into the pro game. He nished the season registering ve goals and 12 points in 56 games. Now, with a year of pro experience plus the time in Pittsburghs training camp, Megna is ready to improve on last years numbers. I know I still have to prove myself before I get a chance, work on the little things, he said. Continue to use my speed, work on my shot and focus on the things I learned up there. It all translates and hopefully it will give me a better shot to go back there.

Buccaneers bench Freeman for rookie

AP Sports Writer

Dallas turns back Lehman challenge

For The Times Leader

TAMPA, Fla. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have benched quarterback Josh Freeman and replaced him with rookie Mike Glennon. The move Wednesday came two days after coach Greg Schiano insisted Freeman remained the starter because he gave the team the best chance to win. The coach changed his mind after meeting Tuesday with general manager Mark Dominik and later discussed the switch with ownership. This is a performancebased decision, Schiano said Wednesday. Were not getting the job done on the eld. The winless Bucs have lost their rst three games, two on eld goals in the closing sec-

onds. Freeman has completed just 45.7 percent of his passes for 571 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. Dating to last season, theyve dropped eight of nine games, and the offense hasnt played well throughout the stretch. There are a lot of reasons for it. Its not just one guy, Schiano said of Freeman, who is in the nal year of the contract he signed as a rookie. Buts thats a critical piece of it. The quarterback touches the ball every play. Glennon was drafted in the third round out of North Carolina State, where he spent part of his college career as a backup to Russell Wilson. He will make his rst pro start Sunday at home against Arizona. After setting single-season team records for passing yards

and points scored in 2012, the Bucs have scored just three offensive touchdowns through three games none in the past seven quarters. Freemans completion percentage and quarterback rating (59.3) are last in the league, See BUCS| 3B

LEHMAN TWP. Naturally, the rst team to score off Dallas in eight games received plenty of acclaim from the Mountaineers. So after the Lake-Lehman girls soccer team gave the Mountaineers their rst scare of its 2013 campaign, Dallas coach Abe Lewis was already thinking strategy for the next time the two teams face in the District 2 Class 2A seminal or nal round next month. Lewis prediction came after his Mountaineers fought off an aggressive Lake-Lehman squad in a 4-2 victory to remain the lone undefeated team in the Wyoming Valley Conference. I saw two teams that I see down the future in the playoffs, Lewis said. I dont see any reason why Lake-Lehman and Dallas shouldnt be a district championship game. Dallas found itself in trouble after Julia Hutsko gave the Black Knights a lead in the 18th minute from an Emily Sutton assist.

Dallas Talia Szatkowski leads a rush upfield against Lake-Lehman during their WVC girls soccer match Wednesday night.

Fred Adams | For The Times Leader

Lake-Lehman is a good team, Lewis said. They have two or three of the better attacking players in the league. Its really a challenge for any defense to face Lake-Lehman. The decit was short-lived as Tiffany Zukosky set up a 20-yard Talia Szatkowski score to even it up at 1-1 apiece in the

23rd minute. Just two minutes later, Ruby Mattson put the Mountaineers ahead with excellent ball control and ashy speed. Mattson bulleted down the sidelines, weaved around three defenders and the See SOCCER | 3B

Faster between snaps hasnt proven better yet for Eagles

The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA The purpose of Chip Kellys fastpaced offense is to run as many plays as possible in the shortest amount of time to maximize scoring potential. It worked for two quarters. Since cramming 53 plays into the first half of their season opener, the Philadelphia Eagles have run 145 plays in the last 10 quarters. Not coincidentally, they beat Washington 33-27 in Week 1 and lost the next two games. Overall, opponents have run 227 plays to Philadelphias 198. Thats not the formula for success in this frenetic attack. Weve got to move the ball and score points, offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said Wednesday. A lot has been made about how many plays (are run). We dont worry about how many plays weve got to run. Weve got to score more points than the opponent. However we can get that done, we have to do that. In losses to San Diego and Kansas City, the Eagles were on the short end of time of possession considerably. That can wear down a defense, which was evident in both games. The Chargers scored 13 points in the final 8:55 of the fourth quarter in a 33-30 win in Week 2. The Chiefs put the game away with a drive that lasted 8:15 in the fourth quarter. But Kelly downplays ball control. Instead, he focuses on play totals. Time of possession means nothing. Its plays run, Kelly said. Theyre running a lot more plays and were not running enough plays. Thats the whole argument that Ive always had with the time of possession because a team can hold it for 40 minutes, if they run the same amount of plays, thats a different deal. Right now, plays run, were not running enough plays on offense, were turning the ball over too much offensively, were not executing the way were supposed to execute and thats what we have to do to be able to keep our defense off the field. The teams inability to convert on third-and-long is part of the problem. The Eagles are 4 for 21 in third-and-5 situations and longer. Typically when you go back, you evaluate third downs, its really never one thing, Shurmur said. The throw may be off. You may drop the football. The quarterback may have gotten pressure. But the key is for us to stay on the field. By the way the numbers work out, you want to have shorter third downs than longer ones because as the distance goes up, theyre tougher to make. While Shurmur and Kelly offered contradictory thoughts on play totals, the main goal is to score points any way possible. The Eagles (1-2) will have to do plenty of that Sunday at Denver (3-0) against Peyton Manning and the Broncos No. 1 ranked offense. Denver leads the league in yards (486.7) and points (42.3) per game. The Eagles are second in yards (461.7) and eighth in points (26.3). We have to convert third downs, stay on the field, not have penalties, not turn the ball over or do the little things that kill a drive, quarterback Michael Vick said. We just have to limit the mistakes, make as many plays as possible. If we do everything right, then well have 70-80 plays in a game.

Knicks, Nets to share NBA All-Star weekend in 15

AP Basketball Writer

NEW YORK Two sparkling arenas. One AllStar city. The NBA is bringing its All-Star weekend back to New York in 2015, and the Knicks and Nets are putting aside a strengthening rivalry on the court to share it. Barclays Center in Brooklyn will host the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday night and the skills events, highlighted by the slam dunk contest, on Saturday before the 64th All-Star game goes to Madison Square Garden on Sunday, Feb. 15. To have two brand-new buildings, in effect, is what we have in support of New York City. Its good for basketball. Its good for the teams. Its good for the NBA, and its great for the city, Commissioner David Stern said Wednesday at a news conference that included Mayor Michael Bloomberg and ofcials from both teams. With two state-of-theart venues after the construction of the Barclays Center, which opened last September, and a threeyear renovation project at the Garden both with $1 billion price tags the league saw the opportunity to show off two of its best buildings in what its touting as a weeklong celebration of basketball. So the NBA went to the teams about two years ago,

Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver said, and eventually a plan was arranged in which they both could be part of the leagues midseason spectacle. This is a great event for the entire league, not just for New York City, and I think they recognize the power of both organizations working together in what in essence are new buildings would make this truly a global event, Silver said. And so what it was worth putting aside whatever independent interest they had and working in a cooperative nature. The league last split sites for its midseason showcase in 2010, when the Saturday events were in the Dallas Mavericks arena and the game was held at the Cowboys stadium. The game was last held at Madison Square Garden in 1998 in what turned out to be Michael Jordans nal All-Star appearance with the Bulls and Kobe Bryants rst overall. The Garden was ready to host again after its project, which took place over the last three summers, but Barclays also was a strong candidate to land another marquee event to the many it has staged in its opening year. Silver said the teams realized the game wouldnt come back to New York again right away, so sharing was the only way both could be involved.

Huge rally keeps Americas Cup at home

AP Sports Writer

SAN FRANCISCO The big black cat almost used up its last life at the start, burying its bows in a wave and falling behind a boatload of Kiwis. Of course, it was only tting in this Americas Cup that Oracle Team USA would need to survive neardefeat again.

With one last spectacular push in a winner-takeall nale Wednesday, the United States managed to hang onto the Auld Mug in closing out the longest, fastest and, by far, wildest Americas Cup ever with one of the greatest comebacks in sports. Skipper Jimmy Spithill steered Oracles spaceage, 72-foot catamaran to its eighth straight vic-

tory, speeding past Dean Barker and Team New Zealand in Race 19 on a San Francisco Bay course bordered by the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the Embarcadero. All but defeated a week ago, the 34-year-old Australian and his international crew twice rallied from seven-point decits to win 9-8. Owned by software billionaire Larry

On your own youre nothing, but when youve got a team like this around you, they can make you look great. They did all of that today and the whole series.

Im so proud of the boys. They didnt inch. It could have been over shortly after the start just inside the Golden Gate Bridge.

From page 1B punching in the eventual game-winning goal. Zukosky assisted on her second goal in the 36th minute, shooting a ball from 16 yards out that the Lake-Lehman goalkeeper was unable to control. Ashley Strazdus knocked in the rebound to give Dallas a 3-1 lead. Our two forwards (Strazdus, Szatkowski) allow us to counter-attack on defense, Lewis said. We catch them off guard some times. Szatkowski provided the Mountaineers with a majestic set piece goal in the 46th minute. From 27 yards out, she found the top-right corner from the far side. Lake-Lehman controlled possession for the majority of the second half after Hutsko produced her second goal on a misdirected Shoshana Mahoney shot in the 48th minute. The Black Knights had several opportunities to cut the lead in half to no avail. Sutton was left wide open in the 52nd minute and lifted the ball over the post. In the 70th minute, Dallas goalkeeper Sidney Emershaw (15 saves) made a quick reaction save on a close range kick. They have some very touted by general manager Mark Dominik as a franchise quarterback, has thrown for four TDs vs. 12 interceptions in the last six games. The switch caps a tumultuous month in which Freeman missed a team photo shoot on Labor Day, was not voted a team captain for the rst time in three years and refuted good players who are able to control the ball that are more experienced and bigger in size than us, Lewis said. They took advantage of size and we had trouble winning the head balls. Wyoming Valley West 8, Meyers 0 Alyssa Shaver recorded two goals and had one assist in the Spartans shutout win.

From page 1B Tampa Bays had trouble scoring points despite having proven playmakers in running back Doug Martin and receivers Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams. The fth-year pro, once

but his inconsistency down the stretch contributed to the Bucs losing ve of nal 6 games to nish 7-9 and miss the playoffs for the fth straight year. He threw nine interceptions in the nal three weeks of 2012, and his slow start this year raised questions about Schiano possibly turning to Glennon in two weeks, when the Bucs

have a bye. The coach said as late as Monday that Freeman was his starter, but apparently changed his mind on Tuesday an off day for players and informed Freeman and Glennon of the change Wednesday morning. The 25-year-old was the third quarterback selected in the 2009 draft

behind Mark Sanchez and Matthew Stafford. He made his rst NFL start a win against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers after Tampa Bay began his rookie season with seven consecutive losses. The former Kansas State star followed with a breakout season in 2010, when the Bucs went 10-6 but failed to make the playoffs.

Warriors fend off Lions


WEST PITTSTON It seemed every time Wyoming Area needed a lift, the Warriors had someone step up. That little extra was enough for the Warriors to take a 1-0 victory over Lackawanna Trail in a WVC Division 1 eld hockey crossover game Wednesday. Were glad we won, but were not completely satised, Warriors coach Lunda Comiskey said. Theres still some things to work on. Both teams are battling for playoff position. Wyoming Area (4-5) remains sixth in Class 2A while gaining ground. The Lions stay two wins ahead of Delaware Valley and Wallenpapack for the nal playoff spot in Class 3A. Sometimes we were passive with our opponents in the circle, Lackawanna Trail coach Katie Snyder said. We have to be fast to the ball and be aggressive to the ball. Even with a loss, though, this is a good learning experience. Theres a lot (of season) still to go. Bree Bednarski scored the games lone goal on a hustling play in the 25th minute. After Abby Thornton red a shot from the top of the circle, Trail keeper Kerrigan Buck stacked her leg pads to make the initial save. The rebound came to Grace Angelella, who quickly dished to Bednarski. The sophomore charged past the goalie and another defender toward the post and red a shot into the goal for a 1-0 lead. Bree has brought an intensity on the eld,

Comiskey said. Shes demanding the ball come to her with her play and shes lifting the rest of the forwards to play with greater intensity. That was all Wyoming Area goalie Christina Granteed would need. The junior was tested just once in the rst half, but it was as challenging of an opportunity as she will likely face all season. A clearing pass that was red upeld by a Lackawanna Trail defender took a strange hop on the grass to elude the Warriors defensive backs. The Lions Daria Lewandowski, one of their top scorers, was rst to the ball and was charging in on a breakaway. Granteed came out toward the top of the circle and made a sliding stop on the Trail junior. Youve got to stay prepared, Granteed said of her rst opportunity 11 minutes in. Im thinking, against her, its just the two of us. Youve got to go at it for your team and make the save. I knew, too, that if I didnt get it, my defense would have gotten there for me. In the second half, Granteed continued to shine en route to her second shutout of the season. She faced three Trail corners and ended up with four saves in the half, stopping Jordan Laytos on a pair of chances on the doorstep, Nicole Rosa on the Lions best corner of the day and Maddy Lee at the far post on a long cross with 75 seconds to play. Its different, Granteed said of being busy in the second half after a rst half of little activity. In the

rst half, youre coming off warmups so youre ready. Youre not warmed up when youve waited a long time like that. But youve got to stay in the game mentally. Thats what keeps you ready. Wyoming Area was not able to entend its lead, though, as Buck was also a wall in goal. The junior, in her rst year as a starter, made 17 saves, her secondhighest total of the season. A number of the stops could be classied as more than routine. Our defense has been pretty fantastic, Snyder said. Theyve done a relaly good job this year. We havent had a lot of goals scored against us. (Kerrigan) was awesome. She had 17 saves. This was one of her best games she was aggressive and didnt let up on the ball.

Lehman spikers win fifth straight

For The Times Leader

Tom Fox

LEHMAN TWP. A team grows up together on the court for the past three seasons, and as a coach and player, you know what follows. Lofty expectations. And with expectations sometimes brings pressure to live up and exceed what is set for you. Right now, all Kevin Koziol wants his LakeLehman volleyball team to do is continue to improve and enjoy the moment. So far, so good. Lehman fought off a pesky Wyoming Area charge, battling back from decits in the nal two sets en route to a 3-0 victory in Wyoming Valley Conference play Wednesday. Game scores were 25-19, 25-23 and 25-18. It was the fth straight win for Lake-Lehman, which remains two games behind undefeated Holy Redeemer. Wyoming Area,

which had won three consecutive coming into the match, fell to 4-4. I think we played pretty well, especially in the last 10 points of that third set, Koziol said. The girls have kept their heads and just play the game. Its no surprise to see the Black Knights in this spot. The team lost just one senior off last years team that qualied for the district 2A playoffs. Then again, when you have a squad thats been playing together on the varsity level for so long, its just second-nature to know where teammates are going to be, where the pass is going to be set up or where the back-row dig is coming from. Maria Chinikaylo has been setting teammates for years now. The hitters are comfortable with spots on the court, and playing to their strengths and counterbalancing their teammates weaknesses. This year especially, we

are all working as one unit and are coming together nicely, senior Kahli Kotulski said. We are ne with the expectations so far, and we know we have to kill it every time we step on the court because we want to keep it going. This year means the world to us. Weve been working for this season for a long time now. Last year, we made the playoffs, but we didnt go as far as we would have liked. This year, we know we can do it and we are going to work our butts off to get there. Sometimes, though, you do have the pressure. Koziol wont deny the lofty goals. Right now, the Black Knights are sitting in the top-half of the WVC. Looking at the district 2A standings, its not out of the realm of possibility Lehman (6-2) could reach as high as a No. 2 seed. I keep telling the girls to expect excellence, and you achieve that by expecting it, the head coach said. We still have some old

habits of falling back into sloppiness here or there, or playing down at times. We are trying to use some different tactics to keep going strong. Wyoming Area had thoughts of its own. After struggling with eight attack errors and ve service miscues in the opening set, the charge began. The Warriors held a 22-21 lead in the second set, only to see Danae Sutliff respond with two consecutive kills and a Lehman ace ended a 4-1 run and gave the Black Knights a 25-23 victory. Wyoming Area also held a brief lead in the third before Kotulski took over. She recorded four of her teamhigh eight kills in the nal 18 points of the set, which allowed Lehman to close on a 12-5 spurt to break open a 13-13 tie. Hitting woes hurt the Warriors with a total of 24 attack errors in the match. Im happy that we battled, Wyoming Area rst-year head coach Nick

Lake-Lehman 3, Wyoming Area 0 WA 19 23 18 LL 25 25 25 WA: Samantha Acacio 9 kills, 2 aces, 2 blocks; Audrey Hiedacavage 21 assists; Mallory Bohan 7 kills, 5 digs. LL: Kahli Kotulski 8 kills, 2 aces; Danae Sutliff 6 kills, 1 ace; Maria Chinikaylo 23 assists, 1 kill.

Diaco said. We have girls that dont quit and will battle until the very end. It was nice to see us come close and hang with LakeLehman. We just have to continue to work with the girls to adapt to our style of play.

NFL coaching legend Vince Lombardi had several catchy sayings. One of the most memorable was, Its not whether you get knocked down, its whether you get up. Sounds cool. Looks good on a locker room wall. Its meaningless, though, unless applied. And LakeLehman has applied it this season. The Black Knights came into the season as the coaches and medias darlings in Class 2A of District 2. They were highly favored to capture the D2-2A crown, something the program hasnt done since 1997. They had all the pieces in place. Then Old Forge scattered them on opening night. Lehman was driving for the potential winning touchdown, a storybook ending to what was to be a storybook season. Interception, game over, Old Forge wins 13-7. A win in that game puts us on the map, Lehman coach Jerry Gilsky said. You get more of an identity. Old Forge is a small school that cranks out quality teams annually. Lehman is a tad bigger in enrollment but way smaller in recognition. Yet, the Black Knights didnt let the loss sink them for too long. Theyve wiped out their last three opponents. Granted none were of the stature of Old Forge. Montrose hasnt scored yet. Wyoming Area is going through a massive rebuild. And Holy Redeemer hasnt been able to get on solid footing since the programs first game in 2007. But the fact that Lehman knocked all three down and didnt let them up speaks volumes. Football is football, Gilsky said. (Old Forge) was a game that really measured us as a team. In a way, we learned from the first game of the year. The kids in the last three games came out of the gates strong. They understand what it take to be a winner. And what it takes to get back up.

When Lake-Lehman intercepts a pass this season, it has meant one thing six points. The Black Knights have returned all three of their interceptions for touchdowns. Kody Pachamovitch and Josh Winters each had a pick6 against Holy Redeemer on Friday. Joey Vigil had one earlier this season.

Expected: Dallas to battle Coughlin tough despite the records. Coughlin stayed unbeaten with a 7-0 victory over the winless Mountaineers. The biggest margin of victory in the last five meetings was Dallas 28-14 win in 2011. Even that game was a closer contest than the final score indicated.

Dallas struggles this season are reminiscent of those of the 2008 Mountaineers, who finished 2-8. Both teams couldnt score to start the season.

Wyoming Areas 20-12 victory over Hanover Area on Friday meant the Warriors wont have a chance to set the record for the worst start in school history. That distinction still belongs to the 1974 team that lost five in a row before defeating Dallas 20-18. The 1974 team finished 2-6-2, with the other win coming via forfeit against Hanover Area. The worst team in the schools 48 seasons was the 1976 team that finished 1-10. Oddly, those Warriors won their opener 19-0 over Bishop

The PIAA requires a running clock in high school football if a team leads by 35 points in the second half. A California youth league took its mercy rule a step further. According to a story on, the Northern California Federation Youth Football League has instituted a $200 fine and a one-week suspension for a coach if his team wins by 35 points or more. Teams must also sit their starters once up by 28. The thinking is players on losing teams were getting discouraged and losing interest in football. In the PIAA adopted the same rule this season, heres how much the following WVC coaches would owe, provided they still pay a fine despite being suspended: Berwicks George Curry, $600; LakeLehmans Jerry Gilsky, $600; Meyers Corry Hanson, $400; Crestwoods Greg Myers, $200; Tunkhannocks Rod Azar, $200; Wyoming Valley Wests Pat Keating, $200.

Pens rout Wings to close preseason

TheAssociated Press

From page 1B member of the 2012 signing class, Jamil Pollard, left before the season started. In some cases, players in that class such as District 2 alums Eugene Lewis and Nyeem Wartman, essentially picked Penn State on three separate occasions. They chose the school once before their senior seasons of high school began. They chose it again before signing day in the winter after the Sandusky scandal changed everything around. The third time came that summer when the sanctions freed them from their letters of intent. They all had their reasons. I just took football out of the equation, Lynch said. I looked at the academics, the social life and life after football. I believe once I graduate here, if I pursue the NFL or I dont, Ill be in a good position because of the large alumni connections and the academics. I really liked the school all-around, Johnson said. I loved the way (defensive line coach Larry Johnson) coaches. Its just Penn State. Now that 2012 signing class will get some more reinforcements from the restored scholarships. And with the NCAA leaving the window open for future leniency, theres some hope that a trip to a bowl game could be a reality after all. But if thats truly on the

BALTIMORE Ryan Flaherty hit a pair of two-run homers, Jonathan Schoop had a solo shot in his big league debut and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 9-5 on Wednesday night to snap a six-game skid and clinch their second straight winning season. Steve Pearce also homered for Baltimore and Chris Davis doubled in a run to increase his RBI total to 137 tied with Miguel Cabrera for the major league lead, pending Detroits late game in Minnesota. The Orioles were eliminated from playoff contention one night earlier, so manager Buck Showalter rested Adam Jones, Brian Roberts and Matt Wieters and moved Davis from rst base to designated hitter. With a lineup that included Jason Pridie, Schoop and Steve Clevenger, the Orioles ended a streak of 21 straight games of scoring ve runs or fewer. Schoop, a 21-year-old prospect, contributed two hits including the homer in the sixth and scored three runs.
Indians 7, White Sox 2

CINCINNATI Daisuke Matsuzaka scattered four hits in 7 2-3 shutout innings to win his third consecutive start, outdueling Cincinnatis Mat Latos in the New York Mets victory over the Reds. Eric Young Jr. drove in the only run for the Mets, who won two of three in the series to further dampen Cincinnatis hopes of hosting the National League wild-card playoff game on Tuesday. The Reds came into the game in third place in the Central Division and second in the wild-card standings, one game behind Pittsburgh. The Pirates and Reds end the regular season with a threegame series starting Friday in Cincinnati. Matsuzaka (3-3) allowed two walks and hit a batter.

shortstop Derek Jeter, third baseman Alex Rodriguez, rst baseman Mark Teixeira and center elder Curtis Granderson. Hobbled by the ankle he broke in last years AL championship series opener, Jeter didnt make his season debut until right before the All-Star break and wound up playing just 17 games because of recurring leg injuries. Teixeira, who injured a hand while with the U.S. team at World Baseball Classic, played in just 15 games and needed season-ending surgery. Rodriguez, coming back from hip surgery, and Granderson, who broke a forearm and pinkie when hit by pitches, each played about one-third of the season.

US new-home sales jump 7.9 %

Americans stepped up purchases of new homes in August after cutting back in July, suggesting that higher mortgage rates are not yet slowing the housing recovery. Sales of new homes increased 7.9 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 421,000, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. That comes after sales plunged 14.1 percent in July to a 390,000 annual rate. The rebound in sales could ease worries that higher mortgage rates have started to dampen sales. It coincided with the best month of sales for previously occupied homes in more than six years. And homebuilders remain more condent in the market than theyve been in eight years. New-homes sales were 12.6 percent higher in August than a year ago, although the pace remains well below the 700,000 consistent with a healthy market.

Stamps maygo up 3 cents BlackBerry

ANDREW MIGA WASHINGTON It soon could cost 49 cents to mail a letter. The postal Board of Governors said Wednesday it wants to raise the price of a rst-class stamp by 3 cents, citing the agencys precarious nancial condition and the uncertain prospects for postal overhaul legislation in Congress. Of the options currently available to the Postal Service to align costs and revenues, increasing postage prices is a last resort that reects extreme nancial challenges, board chairman Mickey Barnett wrote customers. The rate proposal must be approved by the independent Postal Regulatory Commission. If the commission accepts it, the increase would become effective Jan. 26. Under federal law the post ofce cannot raise its prices more than the rate of ination unless it gets approval from the commission. In seeking the increase, Barnett cited extraordinary and exceptional circumstances which have contributed to continued nancial losses by the agency. As part of the rate increase request, the cost for each additional ounce of rst-class mail would increase a penny to 21 cents while the price of mailing a postcard would rise by a cent, to 34 cents. The cost to mail a letter to an international destination would jump 5 cents to $1.15. The Postal Service also said it would request price increases totaling 5.9 percent for bulk mail, periodicals and package service rates, according to a ling to be made with the commission today. Media and marketing businesses that rely on postal services say a big increase in rates could hurt them and lower postal volume and revenues. Rafe Morrissey, the Greeting Card Associations vice president of postal affairs, said the rate increases were no substitute for common-sense, structural reforms and the group hoped they would be rejected. The post ofce expects to lose $6 billion this year and is seeking help from Congress to x its nances. For some time Ive been saying that BlackBerry was on course for disaster. Dwindling sales, a shrinking market share and an aura of old-fashionedness have all conspired against the oncepopular smartphone manufacturer. The latest news looming buyouts, layoffs and cuts to its product line all seem to indicate that Nick BlackBerry Delorenzo has failed in TECH TALK its attempt to innovate itself out of an untimely demise. It didnt have to be this way. BlackBerry has a lot of intrinsic value a still signicant market-share, unique encryption technologies and a proprietary operating system but the company violated a cardinal rule of the technology industry a few years ago. It stopped trying new things. During that time, BlackBerry did release new products, but they appeared to be bland, incremental improvements with little to distinguish them from previous models. Software development fell off as Googles Android and Apples iOS platforms exploded in popularity and lured away programmers. By the time the company realized its mistake, the publics perception of the brand had already taken a turn for the worst. Blackberry recently released a pair of new models the Z10 and Q10 and a new version of the BlackBerry operating system. The Z10 is a relatively slick device thats similar to current generation Android devices, while the Q10 is similar to previous BlackBerry devices, featuring a full QWERTY keyboard and a smaller screen. The company had high hopes for the Z10 and was

has put itself on the ropes

depending on good sales to help bolster both its public image and its agging nancial reserves. Sadly, sales were tepid, and as a result, BlackBerry has announced that its cutting 4,500 jobs worldwide. This even though there are still a large (though dwindling) number of BlackBerry users and that some businesses mandate their use due to the security offered by their e-mail service. So, what should the company have done? One option, and I believe it to be a viable one, would have been to abandon the BlackBerry operating system in favor of a customized version of Android. This would have allowed it to reduce its operating costs operating system development is relatively expensive while expanding both the appeal and capability of its devices by making all of the apps and features available with the Android operating system available to its users. Its likely the company could have produced an emulator that would have allowed these Androidbased devices to continue to run previously-written BlackBerry apps. Whatever the case, BlackBerry isnt dead yet its just in big trouble. While its demise is not quite a foregone conclusion, the company is up against two massive players that can basically afford to ignore them Apple and Google and a third in Microsoft that basically has unlimited money to burn in the mobile phone market. The lesson that can be taken from all of this: In the tech world, its not enough to be good, its not enough to be needed. You need to be dynamic and progressive, and BlackBerry let itself fall behind.

Durable goods orders are up

$10 wage bill signed in Calif.

Companies placed slightly more orders in August for U.S. long-lasting manufactured goods, stepping up demand for cars, trucks and machinery. Even with the gain, business spending on factory goods may not be strong enough to accelerate economic growth in the July-September quarter. Orders for durable goods, items expected to last at least three years, increased 0.1 percent in August, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. That comes after orders plummeted 8.1 percent in July, which was largely because of a steep drop in volatile commercial aircraft orders.

Calling it a matter of justice, Gov. Jerry Brown put his signature on a bill that will hike Californias minimum wage to $10 an hour within three years, making it one of the highest rates in the nation. The legislation signed Wednesday at a ceremony in downtown Los Angeles will gradually raise the current minimum of $8 an hour to $9 on July 1, 2014, then to $10 on Jan. 1, 2016. The increase is the rst to the states minimum wage in six years and comes amid a national debate over whether its fair to pay fast-food workers, retail clerks and others wages so low that they often have to work second or third jobs. The state Senate approved AB10 on a 26-11 vote Sept. 12, and the Assembly followed hours later on a 51-25 vote. Both chambers voted largely along party lines.

Amazon banking on new Kindle

AP Business Writer





on 7/17/2008

SEATTLE Amazon is refreshing its lineup of tablet computers with new devices called Kindle Fire HDX, which are signicantly faster and lighter than the previous generation. The 7-inch and 8.9-inch versions also have sharper, more colorful displays than older models, and both have more pixels per inch than the latest iPad. To help those who are unfamiliar with tablets, the new Kindles come with a feature called Mayday, which allows users to summon a live customer service representative in a tiny video window. The helpers can explain new features or troubleshoot problems while guiding users with on-screen

hand scribbles. They can even take control of the device from afar. CEO Jeff Bezos introduced the feature to reporters Tuesday, saying it is completely unique and takes advantage of Amazons massive cloud computing and customer service infrastructure. It also builds on Inc.s reputation for excellent customer service. You shouldnt have to be afraid of your device, Bezos said. While the new Kindles are upgraded in several ways, Amazon also cut the price on what will be its entry-level 7-inch tablet, the Kindle Fire HD with 8 gigabytes of memory, to $139. The base HD model previously cost $199, but had 16 gigabytes of memory. The price

makes the tablet just $20 more than Amazons latest dedicated e-reader, the Kindle Paperwhite. The Kindle Fire HD is sheathed in a new magnesium alloy body like the HDX models, but has the same screen resolution and processing power of the older model. However, it drops the front-facing camera and microphone found in last years HD. Globally, Amazons shipments in the April-June quarter were down 59 percent from a year earlier at 470,000, NPD said. That compared with 14.6 million for Apples iPad, down 17 percent from a year ago, and 10.8 million for Samsungs Galaxy line, which is more than six times more than a year earlier. Amazon sells most of its Kindles around the Christmas holidays, Baker said.

Across the land, fantasy football fuels lifelong friendships

leagues in which participants draft fantasy teams and accumulate points based on how athletes fare in real competition now are played by 13 percent of all Americans, according to a 2012 study. Evidence of fantasy-league popularity which surpasses the number of people who play golf or watch the American Idol nals is everywhere, from drink specials for leagues at sports bars to workplaces developing guidelines for allowing fantasy sports at the ofce. Its just one of those things thats sort of like everyone has a fantasy team, said Matthew Berry, ESPNs senior fantasy analyst, whose book, Fantasy Life, was No. 5 on the New York Times best-seller list for two weeks after its publication in July. And if you do, youre not looked at weird, he said. It was 1988 when the friends from New Trier heard about a game some people were playing called rotisserie football, which involved football statistics. One of the teens stuck a sheet of notebook paper into a football magazine, and each friend took turns picking players. Jerry Rice, Dan Marino and Neal Anderson were among those drafted during choir rehearsal. Shubart, known as the most organized of the group even at age 14, tallied each players scores by hand from statistics in the newspaper. It was fun because we were play-

CHICAGO So much has changed since they rst passed around a football magazine in class to pick fantasy teams a quarter of a century ago. Marriages. Kids. Jobs. Thinning hair. But each year, as summer winds down and NFL previews begin landing in mailboxes and online, the seven friends from New Trier High School know its that magical season again. Its the time of year when, no matter where they live or how much their lives have evolved, the guys will get back together and see that some things dont change. Jeffrey Shubart will bring a ridiculous number of spreadsheets. Murphy Murph Monroe will complain how much he hates football. Frank Baiocchi will remind everyone, again and again, of the only year his fantasy team won the championship. How about that 1995? he asks, prompting barely an eye roll from buddies who have heard it so many times they dont even bother to tell him to zip it. It was a good year, Baiocchi says with a grin. Across the country, friends like the group from New Trier are already deep into their annual tradition of fantasy football. Once considered a nerdy pastime for extreme fans, fantasy sports

ing football in a way nobody else was, recalled Dave Gordon, now 39 and still inexplicably referred to as Dave Gordon both names by his friends. When the guys headed off to separate colleges across the country, keeping up the pastime known as fantasy football by that point was never in question. Each player would make a long-distance call to Shubarts dorm room at the University of Michigan to declare his starting lineup. Each week, Shubart would tally results and send them off with six postal stamps. They returned each summer

to Chicagos North Shore, where theyd get together to play basketball, see movies or hang out at each others parents houses as always. And when autumn neared, theyd hold their annual draft at one of their parents kitchen tables. The average fantasy sports player in 2013 has played for 8.5 years, and 75 percent play with people they know, according to the Fantasy Sports Trade Association. Though not rocket science, those simple stats coupled with Internet technology that makes it all See FOOTBALL | 2C

WILKES-BARRE For a diehard fantasy-football fanatic, its no longer a case of rooting for the home team but a matter of rooting for his or her own team, one created and pored over and rearranged perhaps countless times. Millions of fantasy-team owners engage in growing numbers every year in this battle tied to the National Football League, and the name of the game is usually besting and beating your closest friends. In this world, nobody really cares which NFL team wins or loses anymore. Instead, its all about who scores. For years, groups of all sorts have gathered in garages, hotel rooms, bars, patios, basements, living rooms and cabins to hold the drafts at which they choose with varied reasoning the players who will make up their fantasy teams. With any luck, an armchair coachs selections will rack up enough collective points to catapult him or her to victory and perhaps a big pot. In Northeastern Pennsylvania, the time-consuming, friendship-cementing pastime has taken hold every bit as much as it has across the rest of the footballwatching land. Justin Eddy, Brian Harris and Randy Knappman are three friends who participate in multiple fantasy leagues. Knappman, a 31-year-old jeweler, is in 11 leagues. He has been playing fantasy football for 14 years. How can he keep track of 11 teams, more than 100 players and still have a real life? I just root for everybody, he said. I probably have whoever scores on one of my teams. Eddy, 32 of Pringle, works in the electronic security business, and Harris, his best friend, is a 34-year-old businessman from Newport Township. Harris once bragged he was ranked 87th in the world by some fantasy-football website. His friends just scoff at the boast, noting they are ahead of him in one of their leagues. And thats what its about winning and points, points, points. You can never get enough points, diehards say. We had a guy in our league who was losing, and he didnt care about his team, Harris said. He wouldnt make any changes, so we kicked him out. But they remained friends. Eddy takes it to a different level. A devout Denver Broncos fan, he struggles with picking up players on teams playing the Broncos. I cant root for a guy to score because it would hurt the Broncos chances of winning, he said. I dont want anybody playing against the Broncos to do well. Websites do the work to compile the statistics. In the years before website development, league leaders would have to rely on newspapers to accurately report the statistics from each game. That took a lot of time and effort, and mistakes could be costly. Even while getting interviewed about their little addiction, Eddy, Harris and Knappman conSee LOCAL | 2C

Eric Dickerson, Ron Springs and Some memorable NFFL team Kenny Anderson on your fantasy- names include the Touchtones, football team, you won the title.

Peterman and Tom Swartwood, orgaSince it began 31 years ago, the

Fantasy football has stood the test of time in this area

league is as simple as it gets 6 points for a touchdown scored, 3 points for a touchdown thrown, 3 points for a field goal, 1 point for an extra point and 2 points for a safety. You have 7 roster spots a quarterback, 2 running backs, 3 receivers and a kicker. Add up the points they score, and if you have more than the team youre playing, you win. In 1983, Al Gore had not yet invented the Internet, so compiling scores was a challenge. Newspaper accounts were sometimes incomplete until USA Today burst onto the scene and provided NFL box scores on all games. But league leaders still had to add them up. It was tedious, to say the least. And keeping track of your team was even more difficult. Trying to determine the extent of injuries was left to the release of the weekly NFL injury report. But sometimes players were ruled out after the NFFLs Thursday-night change deadline. Too bad; either you got lucky or you played with less than seven players on the field. As fantasy football has evolved yardage leagues, points per reception, defenses, multiple roster spots, tight end as a separate position and more the NFFL has remained constant. Perhaps this is why it has lasted with basically the same franchise holders. A few have passed away, but the core of the league remains. And there have been memorable moments. Take the time one team

owner drafted a punter who happened to have the same last name as the teams placekicker. Too bad he chose the punter and was stuck with him for a week. Whens the last time a punter scored? And then there was the year my team was in the championship hunt. Nick Laiuvara, may he rest in peace, and I owned the Hit Men, and Eddie Murray was our kicker. During a mid-season game, the Detroit Lions were winning and had advanced the ball to within the 5 yard line with time running out. They could have had Murray kick a field goal to ice the gamer, but nooooo, they ran the clock out. See FANTASY | 2C

From page 1C easier may be enough to explain fantasy footballs growth, said Berry, who began playing fantasy sports when he was 14 years old. What it says about the American public? I dont think it says anything particularly insightful, Berry said by phone during a break from a 14-city book tour. The appeal is its fun. And guess what? Americans like to do fun things. Simple at heart In 2007, ESPN hired Berry to be its senior fantasy sports analyst. His daily Fantasy Focus podcasts are now a morning ritual for fantasy players everywhere, and as of this week he had more than half a million Twitter followers. Berrys Twitter bio hints at the simplicity behind fantasys popularity: Im just as surprised as you that its a real job. But for the guys from New Trier, there was something else, too. In January 1992, a few weeks after completing their fourth fantasy football season, one of the original league members was killed in a gas explosion in Chicago. Stephen Hoenig, a budding actor who had known most of the guys since elementary school, died while being photographed at a studio on Chicagos Near Northwest Side. The photographer and makeup artist also were killed in the blast, which touched off res and explosions that damaged 18 other buildings in the neighborhood. Each of the friends came home for Hoenigs funeral. And the following August, Hoenigs younger brother who had always been in the background, looking up to the older guys took over his fantasy team without question. It was like thats exactly what he wouldve wanted, said Jonathan Hoenig, now 37. It gave me a lot of strength to know that the tradition and something we all loved would continue. And continue it did. The guys kept their fantasy league going as each graduated from college, met his wife and had children and they advanced in their careers a lmmaker, a college admissions director, two attorneys, a hedge-fund manager and two who work at arts foundations. In 1995, with the friends living across the country, they restructured their league to make annual drafts quicker and easier to keep up. With what is known as a dynasty league, fantasy players keep the same athletes year after year and draft only rookies to replace retirees. Oh the places they go The New Trier friends have held their annual draft in Atlantic City, while in canoes in Wisconsin, at Shubarts ofce in New York and on the weekends of three of their weddings. On the few occasions when one league member couldnt be there in person, hed be there by phone or via Skype, as was the case this year with Jason Chaet. When Heather Chaet went on her rst date with Jason, he mentioned the fantasy-football tradition right away. He basically put it on the line, This is my crew, this is what we do every year, she recalled with a laugh. And while the seriousness of the ritual might have been lost on their wives at rst, they now look forward to reunions as much as the guys. Draft weekend each year has become the time to meet the new babies, tour new homes and catch up with old friends. Joanna Shubart and Samantha Gordon giggle when they see their husbands huddle in a corner whispering about a secret draft trade. During one recent draft weekend, Heather Chaet surprised the group with T-shirts that read Future owner of (their fathers fantasy team name) for each of the players children. There are now 13 future owners. The New Trier friends play only for bragging rights. They dont even have a league name. The friends tried to vote on one once, back in 1998, but couldnt agree. So the top of the Internet site that tracks their results online is labeled The Ofcially Untitled League. But for the next several months, you can bet each of the friends will be on that site once a day, if not more, to share football articles, vacation rental home ads for the next draft weekend and, of course, talk trash. Who at the age of 40 makes a new best friend? Thats what Id like to know, Monroe said. These are my best friends forever for better or worse.

I have them both on one team. I gotta nd out whos available. The pace is constant and frenetic. As Harris said, its not about the money, even though some fantasy leagues offer big payoffs. I just want to win, Harris said. I want to beat them. As a league commissioner, Harris said, he sometimes has to make decisions for the integrity of the league. That gives you some idea as to the level of commitment fantasy players make. Fantasy football is so popular now that the major networks make reference to it all the time, Harris said. If a guy gets hurt or has a huge day, you will hear them say, If you have him on your fantasy roster ESPN and the NFL Network have fantasy-football shows.

editor asked me what the NFFL was, and I told him. You mean you guys dont play real football? he asked. The standings never ran again. Today, fantasy football is a multibillion-dollar industry with millions of leagues, and it has changed the way football fans root. Sure they want their favorite teams to

win, but if it comes down to an NFL team win or an NFFL win, fantasy wins out. From typewriters and newspaper reports to Internet and smartphones and network coverage, fantasy football has grown beyond all expectations. Long live Larry Kinnebrew and a 2-yard TD plunge.

Mom-to-be wants husband to join her on the alcohol-free bandwagon

Dear Abby: Im three months pregnant. Before I got pregnant, my husband and I enjoyed having wine with dinner or a margarita when we were out on the town. We didnt drink to excess, but have enjoyed alcohol in moderation. Obviously, I cant drink anymore, but my husband carries on like nothing has changed. Im becoming resentful every time we go out to eat. I asked him once if hed quit drinking until our baby arrives. He looked shocked and said, Why? Im not pregnant. I guess I feel left out because hes having fun. I want him to suffer with me. Any advice? Resentful in Tennessee

Dear Resentful: Yes. If you feel you are missing out on fun if you cant drink, you have a potential alcohol problem. Tell your husband that when he drinks in front of you, it makes you crave alcohol, and ask again that he respect your feelings. Dear Abby: Im a 28-year-old man who was born disabled. I have not had a date in years. Id like to date and have a girlfriend, but when women look at me, all they see is my wheelchair. Im a good person, well-mannered, respectful, caring and compassionate.

Any advice you can offer would be appreciated. Lonely in Illinois Dear Lonely: Im glad you wrote because its important that you not allow yourself to be isolated. Get out and participate in activities you enjoy that include like-minded people. While you may have been born disabled, Im sure you have abilities and talents that would be welcomed if you choose to volunteer them. If you havent already, search the various online dating sites for both disabled and nondisabled individuals or contact a disability advocacy organization for guidance or to help you get access. Seek advice within the disabled community from individuals who have experience with dating.

They can also help you navigate any physical barriers that might prevent you from dating, if thats an issue. Theres a saying, Seek and ye shall find, and it applies in your situation. I wish you the best of luck. Dear Abby: My husbands much older sister has no problem calling to ask for money, but never calls just to say hello or to see how hes doing. This has been going on for almost 10 years. Shell tell us she or her sons need it for bills or school expenses. He has talked to her about it, but nothing has changed. We both work hard, while she refuses to ask the childrens father for a cent. Should we continue to give her money because it may affect our nephews if we dont? Aunt in the South

Dear Aunt: That you have tolerated this for 10 years tells me you and your husband are kindhearted and responsible people, and I respect that. However, fathers have a legal responsibility to support their children, and your sister-in-law should make sure it happens whether that involves hiring an attorney to help or applying for funds from the state to see her boys are taken care of. If you must give her money, give her enough for a consultation with an attorney.
To receive a collection of Abbys most memorable and most frequently requested poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abbys Keepers, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). Youre happier when you feel you have too much to do than when you feel you dont have enough to do. For you, its a joy to be busy as long as youre doing something meaningful. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You see a shortcut, but you wont compromise your morals for anything, not even to achieve one of your most important goals. Goals achieved through amoral means do not provide satisfaction. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It is sometimes not worthwhile to fix things or fight for things. Fixing will only work for a short time. Fighting will only strengthen your opposition. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Hungry people behave differently from satisfied people. Do what you can to feed your various needs and wants, and you will avoid the pitfalls that ensnare those who hungrily take the bait. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Its not that you need life to be constantly exciting, but you do your best to entertain yourself and others through some of the duller bits. This tendency of yours will charm someone new today. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The cure for low self-esteem is not to come up with a more reasonable estimation of what you can do. Rather, its to stop thinking you always have to do. Youre worthy just because you are. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Opinions arent facts. Its easier to see this when the opinions in question are someone elses. Examining your own thoughts is trickier, but youll do it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your sense of humor will be highlighted. What makes you funny is that youre so in love with the truth, and you have a way of stating it that makes people laugh instead of take offense. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Agreements that yield mutual satisfaction will be repeated, while unfair arrangements wont work for very long. Thats why its important to make sure that everyone shares in the profits. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Because you care so deeply for someone, you will knock yourself out in an effort to make this person happy. Today this wont be easy, but not caring would be harder for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Relationships have their ups and downs, and this is definitely a high point. Spending time with the one you love makes your heart feel so light that its as though your whole being is gravity-resistant. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Learning that happens slowly will stick with you. Take large endeavors in small chunks, and dont stress over them. After a small amount of effort, put your tools down. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Sept. 26). A better structure to your finances will improve your lot in November and December. By February, youll have enough for a substantial investment. In 2014, youll break out of a stale routine to pursue a wild and exciting undertaking. Virgo and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 1, 22, 27 and 41.
