Gas scare forces evacuation at Dallas

School claims pipeline company did not properly notify it of a planned, controlled release

DALLAS TWP. The strong smell of natural gas summoned emergency personnel Thursday morning to Dallas High School, where some students had temporarily taken refuge in the audi-

torium, some of them feeling sick from the smell. It turned out to be only the odorant added to gas and not gas itself from a controlled release that was part of nearby pipeline construction managed by Williams, a company that oversees pipeline operations around the country. District and emergency responders said the gas com-

pany had not properly notied district and township ofcials, a contention the company disputed. The school day was interrupted when police and reghters arrived at the school, but no one was endangered or injured. The confusion started shortly after 10 a.m. when Superintendent Frank Galicki said he received a call about a strong odor of gas in the high school coming in through the ventilators. The ventilators were shut down, the students

moved to the auditorium and the re department and township emergency management were called, he said. Williams vented natural gas into the air, which is a standard part of pipeline construction. Workers are installing a pipeline between Lower Demunds and Hildebrandt roads. State Department of Environmental Protection inspectors found low, but not dangerous, levels of methane in the See GAS SCARE | 12A

Parents hurried to pick up children at Dallas Senior High School on Thursday as fumes from a scheduled natural gas release nearby made some students sick. Measurements were taken to see if the gas was a threat.

Government on brink of a shutdown?

No compromise in sight as Democrats and Republicans feud over spending bill
Associated Press

Courthouse makeover spectacular

PUC OKs $1M penalty against UGI

Sanction is a result of using improper clamps to fix a gas leak in Wilkes-Barre Township


WASHINGTON Moving closer to the brink of a government shutdown, House Republicans vowed Thursday they wont simply accept the stopgap legislation that is likely to remain after Senate Democrats strip away a plan to dismantle President Barack Obamas health care law. A sense of confusion settled over the House, both over how to avoid a shutdown and how to handle even more important legislation to increase the governments borrowing ability to avert a default on U.S. obligations. Short of votes, House leaders shelved a vote that had been expected this weekend on the debt limit measure and gave frustrated GOP lawmakers few clues about what they plan to do to avoid a shutdown. The chaos sets the stage for weekend drama on Capitol Hill, with the Senate planning to send the fractious House a straightforward bill today to keep the government operating through Nov. 15 rather than partly closing down at midnight Monday.

First series of shingles designed to look like terra cotta tiles installed on west side of the courthouse roof

Luzerne County engineer Christopher Belleman expected the new courthouse roof shingles to look like more expensive terra cotta tiles, but he had to wait for installation to be certain. Inspecting the rst series of shingles now See SHUTDOWN| 12A covering the west side of the courthouse

roof this week, Belleman is satised with the result. The shingles are specially designed to create an optical illusion of terra cotta. I think it looks spectacular. It really complements the courthouse, Belleman said. County ofcials wanted the appearance of a terra cotta pan-and-cover roof because old postcards and artifacts indicate thats what the historic structure sported when it opened in 1909.

Historical integrity The state Historical and Museum Commission requires the county to maintain the structures original appearance as much as possible when completing repairs. High-performance shingles designed to mimic terra cotta were selected because the shingles carry a 50-year warranty and cost 60- to 75-percent less, ofcials said. Dunmore Roong and Supply Co. will be paid $834,200 to replace the roof, under the supervision of Mark J. Sobeck Roof Consulting Inc. of WilkesSee ROOF | 4A

This club is helping community at a good clip

Misericordia students coupon club puts its savings toward aiding area charities

Sister Catherine McGroarty of the Catherine McAuley House in Plymouth gives Aaron Orchard, a senior at Misericordia University and president of the Campus Clippers Club, a hug after he and Kristen Andrews of Misericordia dropped off several boxes of bathroom products. The items were purchased at a very small cost thanks to hundreds of coupons the club cut out and used to purchase the merchandise.

Clark Van Orden | The Times Leader

DALLAS TWP. Coupons are like money, and when a a group of Misericordia University students put its members coupon clipping and thrifty shopping skills together, local charities beneted. A new student club on the schools campus was ofcially created at the start of the semester with the goal of cutting coupons and trying to get the most items for the lowest amount of money and then donate those goods to food banks,

shelters and other charities. After the rst month, the Campus Clippers made their rst deliveries. Products from toiletries to Pop Tarts were dropped off at the Back Mountain Food Pantry, the Catherine McAuley House in Plymouth, the Noxen Food Pantry and Ruths Place, an emergency shelter for homeless women. They split the rst months bounty that totalled 749 items worth more than $1,772. The group, which shopped at Wegmans, Weis, Price Chopper, Target and CVS, spent just $9.40 after coupons for the haul. Aaron Orchard, a student from Belvidere, N.J., was one of the students who came up with the idea. Though he wasnt a coupon clipper

himself, he watched TV shows such as TLCs Extreme Couponing, and read Internet blogs. He did a trial run over the summer as part of the United Ways Christmas in July program and wound up buying $835 worth of items for about $50 and donated the products to the Weinberg Food. I realized we could do this, Orchard said. While some in the club were avid coupon clippers prior to joining, some, like Orchard, learned as they went. Nicole Mirra, of Dallas, said shes been pleasantly surprised by how easy the process actually is and how much money can be saved. See COUPONS | 12A

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission approved a settlement Thursday that includes a record $1 million civil penalty against UGIPenn Natural Gas in an investigation launched after a whistle-blowers tip. During its public meeting Thursday, the commission voted 5-0 to approve the settlement between the natural gas utility and the PUCs independent Bureau of Investigation & Enforcement. Under the settlement, the company will: Pay a $1 million civil penalty, which cannot be recovered from ratepayers; Implement computer recording and tracking of leak survey results; Conduct a third-party audit of certain leaks that addresses accuracy of characterization and quality of repair; Hire a third party to conduct a management audit; Provide additional information on high-pressure distribution pipelines. The settlement and penalty are the result of a lengthy investigation that began after natural gas leaks on April 4 and April 5, 2012, along Business Route 309 in WilkesBarre Township. UGI-PNG initially performed a temporary repair and a permanent repair was completed on May 30, 2012. During the informal investigation, the Bureau of Investigation & Enforcement looked into UGI-PNGs leak classications, surveys and compliance with state and federal regulations as well as UGI-PNGs compliance with pipeline repair practices. Based on its investigation, the bureau alleged that UGI-PNG was not compliant with state and federal regulations. Under the settlement, UGI-PNG does not admit any wrongdoing. UGI spokesman Joseph Swope issued a statement on behalf of the company. It read, in part: UGIPNG has commenced a number of initiatives to expand and enhance the safety and reliability of the Companys facilities and practices. These initiatives See PENALTY | 12A

PAMELA LEHMAN EASTON Four days after a 28-year-old woman was found shot to death in the West Ward, Easton authorities identied her and said she is linked to the drug trade, though they would not comment on a motive. Authorities said Thursday they had no current address for Amanda Stratford, but online searches link the victim of Sundays homicide to the WilkesBarre area, where she lived for

several years. Easton police Lt. Matthew Gerould would not comment on a motive in the slaying, nor say if authorities have any suspects in custody, but said she likely knew her killer or killers. He said investigators were releasing Stratfords street nickname, Money, in hopes that anyone who knew her may come forward with information. Stratford was involved in drug trade in and around Easton and other areas, Gerould said, and would not say if Stratford

was living in the Easton area. Stratfords mother, Elaine Smith of Nanticoke, said Thursday she didnt yet know exactly what had happened to her daughter and was awaiting word from investigators. Other family members could not be reached for comment. According to public records, Stratford lived at one time in Wilkes-Barre. Court records show that Stratford, who had also used the name Amanda Frey, had been convicted of several drug offenses in Luzerne

County in 2006 and 2004. Stratford died from multiple gunshot wounds and her death has been ruled a homicide, said Northampton County Coroner Zachary Lysek. Easton police said Stratford was found around 11:30 p.m. in the drivers seat of the truck parked on South Peach Street, an alley. Police would not say how many times Stratford had been shot. Before nding Stratfords body, police said, they received reports of gunshots in the area. Police have identied a man who they said allowed Stratford to borrow his pickup truck on

Sunday. Joseph Edward Knox, 24, was taken into custody near where the truck was found, Gerould said. Knox, of Allentown, was wanted by Wind Gap police on charges of theft and criminal trespass charges, according to court records. Knox violated his probation in February by failing to remain drug free, failing to report as directed and failing to submit to random urine screens for drugs, according to Northampton County Court records. Gerould said Thursday he would not comment on Knoxs connection to the investigation.

WILKES-BARRE A man arrested during an investigation into the Aug. 24 shooting of two young girls at the Sherman Hills housing complex made a plea agreement on Thursday in a case against him from last year. Taleek Sistrunk, of North Empire Court, Wilkes-Barre, pleaded guilty to resisting arrest during an incident that occurred on Nov. 18, 2012. Prosecutors withdrew charges of disorderly conduct (engaging in ghting) and the purchase or consumption of alcohol by a minor. Judge David Lupas sentenced Sistrunk, who turned 21 in August, to 12 months probation and to write a letter of apology to the police ofcer whose arrest attempt he resisted. Sistrunk and two other men were arrested on assault charges on Aug. 24 when police stopped the van they were in after they allegedly left the scene of a ght at 91 N. Empire Court. Police say that van t the description of a van in which a suspect in the shooting of the two young girls two hours earlier left the shooting scene. Police say Sistrunk allegedly zapped two people with a Taser during the ght at North Empire Court. He is awaiting a preliminary hearing on that assault charge.

Firefighters on Thursday afternoon responded to a report of smoke in the elevators at the James F. Conahan Intermodal Center on South Washington Street in Wilkes-Barre. Assistant Fire Chief Thomas Burke said some trash at the bottom of the main elevator shaft next to the Martz Trailways terminal caught fire and produced just enough smoke to trigger a fire alarm. Firefighters moved the elevator out of the way and quickly extinguished the fire with a pressurized water can, Burke said. He said officials do not know how the trash caught fire.

HARRISBURG Three contractors violated radiation protection requirements at the nuclear power plant near Berwick in 2011 and 2012, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission announced on Thursday. An NRC investigation involved a contract roofer who, on Oct. 11, 2011, willfully, and with careless disregard, failed to contact the Health Physics Department at PPLs Susquehanna Steam Electric Station after setting off a radiation detection monitor when exiting the plants Protected Area. The violation was iden-

tied by an NRC resident inspector assigned to the Salem Township plant. Although the violation was minor, given that the contractor cleared a subsequent monitor and the matter did not result in the spread of contamination, because it was willful, the signicance was increased to Severity Level IV, NRC spokesman Neil Sheehan said. The plant received a notice of violation. A second NRC investigation identied a contract carpenter who, on March 30, 2012, deliberately moved a High Radiation Area posting while trying to make room for a scaffold. The violation was minor because the high radiation area

was actually overhead and no actual entry into the area occurred. A third NRC investigation involved contract employees who violated the plants radiologically controlled area egress requirements. On April 6, 2011, a contract insulator who had received an alarm on a personal contamination monitor appropriately tried to re-monitor himself but deliberately leaned his head out of the monitor to avoid a second alarm. Then, on April 7, 2011, a contract electrician used an inoperable portal monitor while exiting the RCA. Although the monitor was not marked as being out of service, the

contractor noticed that no lights were on and that he could not hear it working. However, rather than investigate if it was operating properly, he used it anyway, the NRC said. None of the latter three incidents resulted in the spread of contamination. But because the actions were willful or deliberate, their signicance was increased to Severity Level IV. And given that the violations were identied by PPL, did not involve a licensee ofcial, were not repetitive and were placed in the plants Corrective Action Program, they are being treated as non-cited violations.

The ruling hampered civil lings by the Zikosky and DeAngelo families to recoup damages for their daughters injuries. The insurance companys ling this week outlines that specic argument: That because Lamoreauxs actions were intentional, the company is not required to pay claims to the Zikosky and

DeAngelo families. The insurance companys policies, the ling says, do not cover injury or property damage that is expected or intended. Lamoreaux has appealed his case to the state Superior Court, an action that is still pending. He is locked up at the State Correctional Institution at Pittsburgh. Lamoreaux has said the explosion was not a violent act of arson but an accident in a failed suicide attempt. He spent several months in a medically induced coma at the Lehigh Valley Burn Center in Allentown after the explosion.

Bridge flood gates to be tested

Cops nab person of interest in W-B shooting

EDWARD LEWIS AnD JOn OCOnnELL WILKES-BARRE A man sought by city police as a person of interest in a deadly shooting earlier this month was captured on Hutson Street Wednesday night. Jordan Stevens, 27, was apprehended without incident when authorities with the U.S. Marshals Service, state police and city police found him in a house at about 7:30 p.m. Police on Thursday did not say how they linked Stevens to the Sept. 12 shooting at Boulevard Townhomes on South Welles Street. Police said Christopher Narainasami, 18, of Hazle Avenue, and Alexander Torres Silva, 18, of South S h e r m a n Stevens Street, both in Wilkes-Barre, were shot in the apartment complex just before 1 a.m. A third person with the pair was not injured. Narainasami died at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center on Sept. 13. An autopsy showed he died from multiple gunshot wounds. The manner of death has been ruled a homicide by the Luzerne County Coroners Ofce. Surveillance video at the apartment complex recorded Narainasami, Silva and their friend walking near stairs and passing an unknown person, who turned around with a handgun and randomly started shooting, police said. Stevens was immediately named a person of interest hours after the shooting. Police said Stevens was wanted by the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole for breaking parole. He was released from state prison in October 2012 after serving a sentence for a home invasion in Wilkes-Barre nearly eight years ago. Court records say Stevens was one of three men who forced their way into an apartment at 565 N. Franklin St. and assaulted three people, including a woman who held a baby, on Dec. 12, 2005. One of the invaders shot a man in the hip with a small-caliber gun that was later found by Luzerne County deputy sheriffs in Stevens residence, when he lived at 244 Eastview Drive, on June 7, 2006. U.S. Marshal Martin Pane praised the operation that took Stevens off the streets. The coordination and cooperation demonstrated by law enforcement in this case ensured that a dangerous fugitive was taken off the streets, Pane said. It is our top priority to arrest violent crime fugitives, especially those who have no regard for human life.

Repairs to the portable Market Street Bridge ood gates that leaked during record ooding in 2011 will be tested this weekend. Flood gates behind the Luzerne County Courthouse also will be tested Sunday. While some preliminary work on the Market Street Bridge gates will begin at 2 p.m. today, the bulk of the installation will occur on Saturday, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Trafc across the bridge will be restricted to one lane in each direction 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Saturday, and the public is encouraged to use alternate routes. Water pressure blew out sections of the gates rubber gasket seals on both the Kingston and Wilkes-Barre sides when the Susquehanna River rose to a record height in September 2011. The Army Corps has purchased new gaskets and modied the gates to ensure they rest on the ground, which will put more pressure on the gaskets to better hold them in place.

Wycallis Elementary earns national honor


Dallas Township facility becomes Luzerne Countys first Blue Ribbon school
achievement or big improvements in academic achievement. Wycallis was honored as a high achiever. Dallas School Board Superintendent Frank Galicki said getting a school on the list has been a goal of ours for about 10 years, and that it was a group effort. Its a cliche but it really is everybody that makes this happen. Reinert praised his predecessor, retired principal Kathleen McCarthy, for laying the groundwork and the staff, from reading specialists to custodians. We have a lot of aids who do a lot of things to help the dis, and they do phenomenal work. The staff work collaboratively to provide individual attention, and the school doesnt operate the way some think a school is, Reinert said, pointing to students getting one-onone attention at tables in the hallways while others moved from classroom to classroom with no bells or public announcements. The school uses a Response to Instruction and Intervention model that keeps close tabs on each students progress and modies lessons or interventions until the student is up to par. We dont assess and move on, we assess and ll the gaps. Reading Specialist Caitlin Cooper echoed the collaboration theme. Theres a culture here where everybody works together and we help each other. The recipe for our success is that its not academics rst, its taking care of each other and taking care of the kids. Galicki said the staff come up with a wide range of strategies to help students learn. Cooper said they also work to keep the students relaxed when its time to take state tests the primary assessment used to decide what schools gets a Blue Ribbon designation. We have dance parties before the test, Cooper said, and we had a circus last year after the test. Fifth-grade student R.J. Wren said he loves the school because it has nice teachers, and they get to do fun stuff like the living wax museum event, when students pick an historic character, learn about him or her, then pose as wax statues until parents or fellow students push a button that activates them so they can talk about what they learned. Im Jackie Robinson this year, Wren said. Winners will be honored during a program Nov. 18-19, and Reinert said one of the perks for the students will be getting a day off as some staff and maybe all, Galicki hinted get to travel to Washington, D.C., for the ceremony. Reinert was also working on a school parade for today, with everyone wearing a special adornment. We have about 600 little blue ribbons, he said with a grin.

Suit filed in 11 Martz crash moved to federal court

A lawsuit led by two New Jersey men against a WilkesBarre-based bus company for injuries they suffered in a crash on a snow covered highway was moved from Luzerne County Court to U.S. District Court in Scranton. Derrick Burroughs, of Hamilton, and Kwame Featherson, of Passaic, through their attorney, Gregory E. Fellerman, of Kingston, led the suit in county court in August against the Frank Martz Coach Co., FH Family LP, Patrick Graham and Liang Tian. Attorneys for the Martz Coach Co. and Tian had the suit transferred to federal court this week. Burroughs and Featherson were passengers on the Martz Trailways Bus, driven by Graham, when it struck a 2002 Buick Century on Interstate 380 in Clifton Township, on March 6, 2011. The two men said they suffered severe and permanent personal injuries, according to the suit. According to state police at Dunmore: The highway was snowand ice-covered when Tian, a native of China, lost control of his Nissan Murano and stopped in the middle of the road, where it was struck by

the Buick, driven by Lamont Phillips. After that crash, Phillips got out of his car and stood alongside the passenger side when he and his vehicle were struck by the bus, which had swerved to avoid hitting the Nissan, state police said at the time. The bus then struck a guide rail and ipped onto its passenger side, sliding at least 113 feet on its side before it stopped. Phillips was pronounced dead at the scene, state police said. There were about 30 passengers on the bus, which was traveling to Scranton from New York City, according to a

Engineer Chris Belleman, Luzerne Countys operational services division head, examines a blueprint of the courthouse roofing project now under way to stop leaks.

From page 1A will be funded with money previously borrowed through bonds. The shingles stand out because they are replacing a bland, beige rubber roong material that was 31 years old and worn out. Contractors ripped off the the old rubber and scraped away at least two layers of underlying roong material to prime the sloped surfaces for the new shingles. Thick insulation foam panels, a plywood deck and an ice and water shield must be sandwiched between the raw surface and new shingles. Parts of the roof that cant be seen from below will be coated with thicker rubber that has a 30-year warranty, said Belleman, the countys operational services division head. Rubber was selected for hidden surfaces because its elastic and durable and costs less than tile, he said. You cant beat it, he said. Contractors also will remove unused antennas and clean out eight catacombs that allow access to piping while theyre on top of the building, Belleman said. Functionality The project is the nal step to stop leaks that damaged interior plaster and artwork. The county spent millions of dollars in recent years redoing the skylight atop the main dome, stripping and sealing up the terra cotta on the domes and repairing masonry and roof line edges. Dunmore Roong is set to complete the roof work around Thanksgiving. Former county engineer Joe Gibbons believed the original terra cotta roong system was replaced after several years because it could not withstand damage from ice sliding off the domes. Instead of blaming ice, local architect Carl J. Handman, who was involved in historical research and earlier phases of courthouse repairs, attributes the terra cotta roof failure to the way it was installed. Council Chairman Tim McGinley said the new shingles are a tting addition. It looks like the type of roof that should be on the courthouse. It is very aesthetically pleasing, McGinley said.


New shingles designed to resemble terra cotta tiles are being installed on the courthouse.

UNITED NATIONS Iran started talks on Thursday with six world powers on its disputed nuclear program as U.S. ofcials tried to tamp down expectations of any quick breakthrough. The meeting on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly marks the highestlevel direct contact between the United States and Iran in six years as Secretary of State John Kerry comes faceto-face with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif. It aims to pave the way for the rst round of substantive nuclear negotiations since April. That round is expected in October in Geneva.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Zarif, both in New York this week to attend the U.N. General Assembly, have said they are anxious to clinch an agreement quickly that could bring their country relief from punishing international sanctions. But the U.S. insists Rouhani must back up his calls for moderation with actions that verify Iran is not seeking to develop a nuclear weapon. In Washington, the White House resisted putting a timeline on the nuclear negotiations. Were not expecting any breakthrough in this initial meeting, said White House spokesman Jay Carney. But this is part of us testing the seriousness of the Iranians, who are obviously engaging in new overtures and showing new interest in trying to

solve this very serious matter. Encouraged by signs that Rouhani will adopt a more moderate stance than his predecessor Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but skeptical that the countrys all-powerful supreme leader will allow a change in course, President Barack Obama has directed Secretary of State John Kerry to lead a new outreach and explore possibilities for resolving the long-standing dispute. Kerry predicted the meeting would be worthwhile. Asked what he would need to hear from the Iranians to show that theyre serious, he said: Ill let you know after theyve been serious. Rouhanis pronouncements at the U.N. have raised guarded hopes that progress might be possible. But they have also served

as a reminder that the path to that progress will not be quick or easy. In his speech to world leaders at the U.N. on Tuesday, he repeated Irans long-standing demand that any nuclear agreement must

recognize the countrys right under international treaties to continue enriching uranium. The U.S. and its allies have long demanded a halt to enrichment, fearing Tehran could secretly build nuclear warheads.

Security Council agrees to Syria deal

The ve permanent members of the divided Security Council have reached agreement on key elements of a resolution to require Syria to dismantle its chemical weapons stockpiles, U.N. diplomats said Thursday. The diplomats said Russia and the United States were still negotiating on a handful of unresolved issues, reportedly including details on how the chemical weapons will be destroyed. They spoke on condition of anonymity because negotiations have been private.

Interpol issues alert for white widow

The tabloids call her the white widow, a British-born Muslim convert who was married to one of the suicide bombers in the 2005 attack on Londons transit system. And for days now, the British media have been rife with speculation she took part in the terrorist takeover at a Nairobi shopping mall. On Thursday, Interpol, acting at Kenyas request, issued an arrest notice for 29-year-old fugitive Samantha Lewthwaite not in connection with the mall attack, but over a 2011 plot to bomb holiday resorts in Kenya. If Lewthwaite indeed embraced the jihadi cause, it would mark a chilling turnaround for the apparently grieving widow who originally condemned the London transit bombings and criticized her late husband, Jermaine Lindsay, for taking part.

farmworkers, whose incomes are some of the lowest, have benefited from wage increases
Associated Press

Farmers face labor shortages

By GOSIA WOZNIACKA FRESNO, Calif. With the harvest in full swing on the West Coast, farmers in California and other states say they cant nd enough people to pick high value crops such as grapes, peppers, apples and pears. In some cases, workers have walked off elds in the middle of harvest, lured by offers of better pay or easier work elsewhere. The shortage and competition for workers means labor expenses have climbed, harvests are getting delayed and less fruit and vegetable products are being picked, prompting some growers to say their income is suffering. Experts say, however, the shortage is not expected to affect prices for consumers. But farmworkers, whose incomes are some of the lowest in the nation, have beneted, their wages jumping in California to $2 to $3 over the $8 hourly minimum wage and even more for those working piece rate. The shortage driven by a struggling U.S. economy, more jobs in Mexico, and bigger hurdles to illegal border crossings has led some farmers to offer unusual incentives: theyre buying meals for their workers, paying for transportation to and from elds, even giving bonuses to those who stay for the whole season. And a few have stationed foremen near their crews to prevent other farmers from wooing away their workers. In the past, we were overrun with farmworkers. But not anymore, said labor contractor Jesus Mateo, whose crews saw a 20 percent pay increase. Employers have to do something to attract them. The fastest workers can now earn more than $1,000 per week. A California Farm Bureau Federation member survey being conducted this year thus far has found about half of farmers are experiencing shortages, said bureau manager Rayne Pegg. Many of the growers say their workforce has decreased by up to one-third. In some cases, farmers are being paid below market prices, because their produce is past its prime, having stayed on the branch or vine for too long. Hardest hit are small farmers, who cant afford to pay more for labor, Pegg said. Farmers say immigration reform, which would legalize their current workforce and create a guest worker program to legally bring farmworkers from other countries, could solve the labor short-

Discovery may help cancer treatments

Examining the molecular proles of tumors from 12 different types of cancers, scientists working with the National Institutes of Health-backed Cancer Genome Atlas said Thursday they had found striking similarities between tumors originating in different organs. Their discoveries, made possible by improvements in sequencing technologies and computing methods, could herald a day when cancers are treated based on their genetic proles, rather than on their tissue of origin, said University of California, Santa Cruz, biomolecular engineer Josh Stuart, a participant in the project and co-author of a commentary discussing its ndings released Thursday by the journal Nature Genetics.


age problem. Immigration reform, however, has stalled in Congress. Farmers in other states are also facing shortages. In Washington, apple growers are having a hard time nding enough workers in time for peak harvest in October. And in Oregon, pear growers whose crop is very big this year are facing the same problem. For years, farmers throughout the U.S. had access to an abundant, cheap, mostly unauthorized labor force streaming in from Mexico. Workers say they often had to beg growers for even a few hours of work and their wages were low. As the U.S. plunged into a recession and Mexicos economy improved, some seasonal migrant workers chose to remain home. Increased border security and drug cartel violence made crossings more dangerous and expensive, deterring workers. A sharp drop in Mexicos fertility rate further decreased the number of young men crossing into the U.S. to work in the elds. The trend appears long-lasting, spelling trouble for farmers, according to a new report by the nonpartisan Pew Hispanic Center. While the recession is over, the report nds, mass migration from Mexico has not resumed.

Money woes behind rate hike request

The post office, which expects to lose $6 billion this year, wants to raise stamp prices by 3 cents
Associated Press


Want a salad with that Big Mac?

McDonalds says it will start giving customers the choice of a salad, fruit or vegetable as a substitute for french fries in its value meals. The worlds biggest hamburger chain was set to make the announcement at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York City, where CEO Don Thompson was slated to speak. The fast-food company also said it would use the packaging for its Happy Meals to promote healthier options. It said all advertising to kids will include a fun nutrition or childrens wellbeing message. The changes come as McDonalds faces criticism from health advocates who say it promotes bad eating habits. McDonalds, based in Oak Brook, Ill., is also trying to shake its fast-food image to keep up with shifting tastes.

WASHINGTON Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said Thursday the Postal Service had no choice but to ask for an emergency rate hike given the agencys dire nances. One day after his cash-strapped agency proposed raising the rstclass stamp price to 49 cents, Donohoe urged swift action by Congress to overhaul the Postal Service and x its nances. The post ofce expects to lose $6 billion this year. It wants to raise stamp prices

by 3 cents next year. The request must be approved by the independent Postal Regulatory Commission. We did not want to take this step, but we had no choice due to our current nancial position, Donahoe said. Donahoe appeared before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee to press for approval of bipartisan legislation that would allow his agency to end Saturday delivery after one year and cease door-to-door delivery for new residential and businesses addresses. Many lawmakers and postal worker unions say the delivery changes would inconvenience customers. The choice is simple: greater exibility and authority now, or massive taxpayer exposure and

service degradation later, Donahoe said. Donahoe noted that his agencys request for a price hike probably wont be decided for three months, a delay that he said hampers the Postal Services ability to run an efcient and

competitive business. Thats not a good environment to be in when you are ghting for your life, he said. The Senate bill also would provide greater exibility for the Postal Service to set prices on its own.

WASHINGTON Lawmakers who oversee U.S. intelligence agencies want to broaden the governments spying powers to include terror suspects who travel to the U.S. after being tracked overseas by the National Security Agency. The push comes as other lawmakers are seeking to curtail the NSAs reach in the wake of public unease over disclosures about the broad extent of the agencys spying powers. The Senate Intelligence Committee was set Thursday to debate changes in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which has come under re by some in Congress after disclosures by Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former systems analyst on contract to the NSA, stirred concerns among Americans that their civil liberties are being violated. Efforts to rein in the oncesecret surveillance programs have attracted an unusual coalition of liberal Democrats and libertarian Republicans, pitting them against House and Senate leaders who have expressed strong support for the NSA programs. Four senators unveiled legislation earlier this week to end the collection of millions of Americans phone records and data on Internet usage. The legislation by three Democrats and one Republican would end longstanding NSA surveillance practices and open up some of the actions of the FISA court, the secret federal court that reviews government surveillance requests. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the intelligence committee chairwoman, has defended the bulk collection of data. She said her committee is drafting legislation to broaden the governments ability to electronically monitor terror suspects who travel to the U.S. if they were already under surveillance overseas by the NSA. Feinstein said the bill would change the part of the law that allows targeting non-Americans outside the U.S. to allow uninterrupted spying on a suspect for a limited period of time after the NSA learns the target has traveled to the United States, so the government may obtain a court order based on probable cause. The proposal is intended to close what lawmakers describe as a brief surveillance gap that occasionally can occur because of varying legal standards between the NSAs operations, directed principally overseas, and the FBIs traditional role of tracking suspects on U.S. soil. NSA commander Gen. Keith Alexander, one of the witnesses at Thursdays hearing, testied previously there is no evidence of intentional wrongdoing in any of the NSA spying programs, even though the agency has reported thousands of errors to the FISA court. Intelligence ofcials blame those errors on a system so complex that no single person at the NSA understood it.

Bus company ends bid to get back Dallas contract


WILKES-BARRE A Dallas bus companys effort to regain a school district contract that was thrown out by a judge has seemingly come to an end in

Luzerne County Court. Jonathan Comitz, an attorney who represents Emanuel Bus Line, led a request to discontinue a court action in the companys attempt to regain a contract with the Dallas School District after another com-

pany received the contract. In June, Emanuel Bus Line led a preliminary injunction after the school board sought competitive bids for bus service. In the ling, Emanuel sought to have a contract awarded to the company.

The board received bids from Emanuel and G. Davis Inc., of Pike County, which offered a contract at $83,000 less than Emanuels. The public complained and the board allowed both companies to resubmit new proposals.

Only Emanuel did, and district Business Manager Grant Palfey determined G. Davis was still about $7,600 lower. The board voted a second time to hire G. Davis. Later that month, county Judge Michael Vough ruled

that Emanuel Bus Line would not regain the bus contract it previously held for many years. At the time, Comitz said the decision could put 25 people out of a job and that other options available to Emanuel to regain damages

were not out of the question. Comitz did not return a phone call seeking comment Thursday. A search through county court records did not reveal any other court lings regarding the issue.

60 Month Financing*

MANSFIELD Manseld University plans to cut up to 29 full-time faculty positions and 25 administrative jobs due to a projected $14.3 million shortfall over the next two years, the school said Thursday. It blamed enrollment declines over the past three years and reduced state support. We nd ourselves facing very serious challenges, said Manseld President Fran Hendricks. Those affected are all valuable to

the university, but we also have an obligation to live within our means and operate in a responsible manner. The school said discussions with faculty and staff who could lose jobs will take place in the days ahead. Manseld is in Tioga County, near the New York border. Ofcials say the decline is a reection of the shrinking number of high school graduates in northern Pennsylvania and the southern tier of New York.

Sept. 24, 2013
Albert T. Belinsky passed away Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013, after a courageous battle with lung cancer. He was born Sept. 22, 1928, in Berwick to Albert and Martha Kasparavich Belinsky. Al was a 1946 graduate of Berwick High School. Upon graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in the 187th Glider Infantry, 11th Airborne Division, spending most of his enlisted time in Japan. After his honorable discharge, he was employed as a welder at AC & F Industries in Berwick. In 1951, he enrolled at Bloomsburg State Teachers College, graduating in May of 1955 with a bachelor of science in education.

Ruths Place House of Hope,VOA merge

Donations may be given to Ruths Place online at www.ruthsplace. com, or mailed to Ruths Place, PO Box 254, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18703. Participate in the Ruths Place Walk-A-Thon from 1 to 3 p.m. on Nov. 3 at Public Square in WilkesBarre. Learn more at the website. For more information, call Director Kristen Topolski at 822-6817, or email at ktopolski@; or Tom Stires CFO, Volunteers of America at 829-6542; email at started in the basement of First United Methodist Church in Wilkes-Barre as an overnight winter shelter in 2003. It expanded to year-round operation in 2007 and now operates 24 hours a day in a standalone building in the North End, providing intensive case management to help women nd permanent housing, jobs, nancial assistance and counseling. As part of the merger, Ruths Place will become a program of VOA, along with other projects such as Manna House, Dial-aDriver and the Thrift Store on South Main Street. The board of directors of Ruths Place will stay together as an advisory group to continue fundraising and to give input on the shelters programs and nances. The groundwork for the merger was laid about a year ago at a breakfast meeting. Peggy Rapp, chairwoman of Misericordia Universitys Sociology Department, was on the board of Ruths Place at the time. She was familiar with VOAs work with the homeless in New York City when she ran a mental health clinic for the homeless there in the late 1990s. Noting that Ruths Place and the VOA are both ministry-based service organizations, Rapp brought the idea of collaboration to the board. Topolski and then board president Bill Bolan met with Alan Garner, president/CEO of VOA Pennsylvania, and Tom Stiers, VOA chief nancial ofcer, over breakfast to discuss it. Ive lived all over the U.S. north, south, east and west and seen all different kinds of service organizations. When Kristen told us, Heres what we do and heres our situation, I was blown away when they said they get 96 percent of the women who stay there into housing. They had our attention immediately, Garner said on Thursday. As discussions progressed, VOA ofcials continued

WILKES-BARRE In addition to showcasing 21 new beds that replaced worn bunks and cots, a celebratory open house at a womens homeless shelter on Thursday gave visitors a glimpse of a well-run organization thats making an incredible difference in the lives of the women sheltered there. The reason behind the celebration: Ruths Place House of Hope has merged with Volunteers of America. Even though the shelter receives funding through state and county grants, there have been months-long lags between grant approvals and disbursement of the funds, said shelter director Kristen Topolski. For a small organization, thats devastating. But for a large organization like Volunteers of America, they can bridge those funding gaps, Topolski said. Volunteers of America, founded in 1896, is a national nonprot providing local human service programs and the opportunity for volunteerism in more than 400 communities in 46 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Ruths Place, by contrast,

Holly Wickizer of Wilkes-Barre, a former resident of Ruths Place, attended the open house there on Thursday. She wants to volunteer there now that she has her own home.

to be impressed with the Wilkes-Barre shelter, Garner said. Bolan on Thursday said the shelter needs the administrative expertise and resources of the VOA in order to continue expanding. Topolski said need in the community is greater than ever, noting that Ruths Place cared for 292 women in 2012, and that number will be

surpassed in 2013. And although the shelter has merged with VOA, Topolski said all donations to the shelter will remain designated to the shelter. And private donations and fund raising play critical parts in ensuring that the shelter continues operating. Thats why volunteers are working to publicize the Ruths Place Walk-a-Thon a major fund raiser

coming up on Nov. 3. In addition to monetary donations and supply contributions, volunteers are also critical. Holly Wickizer was one of those volunteers on hand Thursday. The 29-yearold is wheelchair-bound because she developed multiple sclerosis. She became homeless when she could no longer access her house, so she ended up

sleeping in her car until she was taken in at Ruths Place. Now, she lives in her own apartment in WilkesBarre. This place is wonderful. Its like family here. They got me into my new home. Now my goal is to come back and help the people in the situation I was in. I really wish there were more places like this, Wickizer said.

Ex-Philly priest charged amid new abuse complaint

Associated Press


PHILADELPHIA A former Philadelphia priest named in more than 20 abuse complaints during a long church career has been criminally charged for the rst time after a new accuser came forward within the new time limit. The Rev. Robert L. Brennan, 75, was arrested on rape charges in Perryville,

Md., where hes been living since he was suspended after being named in a 2005 grand jury report on sexual abuse within the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia. He is now charged with sexually abusing an altar boy from 1998 to 2001 in northeast Philadelphia. Earlier complaints against Brennan were long buried in a locked vault at the archdiocese, according to documents unearthed in a landmark church-

abuse trial last year. But Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said the archdiocese after the conviction of a church ofcial over his handling of complaints did the right thing when Brennans latest accuser contacted them in January. This shows the sea change, I believe, in the manner in which the archdiocese under (Archbishop Charles) Chaput is handling complaints, Williams said.

Brennan was expected to be sent to Pennsylvania to be arraigned. It was not immediately clear if he has a lawyer. He is charged with abusing the altar boy in the church sacristy, in his rectory bedroom, in a storage area and at a movie theater. Brennan had been transferred to Resurrection of Our Lord parish despite complaints dating back to at least 1990 from school administrators, a parent and other adults of improper wrestling,

touching and other inappropriate behavior around boys. If the archdiocese would have been forthcoming from the start, he would have long been behind bars, and these kids would not have been hurt, certainly not this one, said St. Paul, Minn., lawyer Jeff Anderson, who represents the accuser and other clergyabuse victims, including two with civil suits pending against Brennan.

Our OpiniOn: MEriCLE FiELD

Dont etch the name if its still being used

Can we please stop naming places, buildings and things after people who are still alive? Certainly there is something to be said about having a person actually get to see his or her name put onto an edice, eld, facility or whatever, but it seems there have been ample local examples that serve as cautionary tales. The most recent came Wednesday when the Wyoming Seminary Board of Trustees Executive Committee announced Mericle Field would get another name. The reason is obvious. It was named after Robert Mericle, the mega-developer awaiting sentencing for his part in what remains one of Luzerne Countys most shameful sandals, commonly called kids for cash. Mericle was the cash part. He landed the chance to build the private, for-prot juvenile detention centers at the heart of the scandal and doled out $1.8 million to two Luzerne County judges as nders fees for helping his company secure the work.The judges, Mark Ciavarella and Michael Conahan (now in jail), were in the ideal position to make sure the county placed juveniles in the facilities, thus the kids part of the scandal. Mericle is awaiting sentencing in federal court.

Mericles name was removed from the scoreboard at Wyoming Seminarys field

There are few who can honestly deny the tremendous contributions Mericle has made and keeps making to worthwhile institutions such as Wyoming Seminary. Some are relentless in criticizing him, but his contributions are real, however much tainted by the seedy side of his wheeling and dealing. The urge to name a eld after him is understandable. Understandable until you consider that the youngsters the eld is meant for are the same age as many of those sent to the Mericle-built detention and treatment facilities he, and the judges, proted from. The Wyoming Seminary did the right thing in dropping the name. Other organizations have been forced to consider doing the same for places named after patrons who ended up facing criminal charges, including former state Sen. Raphael Musto awaiting a trial that could include testimony by none other than Mericle and former state Sen. Robert Mellow, who went to prison after pleading guilty to corruption charges. The lesson is simple: A person may do plenty of good that warrants commemoration with a name on a name on a building, bridge, park or other item, but their capacity for doing ill doesnt end until their last breath. Thank them while theyre alive; memorialize them after their gone.

Big Bristol Bay mine risks salmon industry

Opponents of a massive gold, copper and molybdenum mining operation proposed for the headwaters of Alaskas salmon-rich Bristol Bay are not letting their guard down. The announcement earlier this month that London-based Anglo American would end its partnership with Canadas Northern Dynasty Minerals to develop the Pebble mine was well-received by critics, but no one assumes the ght is over. Everything about the Pebble mine is huge the potential mineral recovery, the scale of the project and the potential for disaster in one of the worlds most vibrant sheries. Anglo Americans departure is no small matter. The company had reportedly invested a half-billion dollars since the partnership began in 2007. Still, in July, U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska asked the partnership to present a specic plan for what was proposed. At the same time the proponents were touting economic benets, they were too vague about the details for the Republican senator and others. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is using its authority under the Clean Water Act to review, and the agency has not been impressed. The project is enormous. Mining waste would be held behind three dams or embankments up to 740 feet high, with one of them estimated to be 4.5 miles long. The three dams would total 9 miles in length. This all would be in a setting of enormous economic impact for the state. Last year Alaskas shing industry caught 22 million salmon in Bristol Bay. The bounty of salmon also powers substantial sport-shing and tourism business. Pebble mine is a hazard to where Bristol Bay salmon spawn and a shing economy in Washington and Oregon. The mine is a bad idea, but a nancial setback for the proposal does not mean the threat has gone away.

Right now baseball is at the height of its season. And all baseball players are dreaming of playing in the major leagues. Here are a few tips which will help all baseball players. It is important for all baseball players from the Little Leagues to the major leagues to remember that You cant beat success. If you are having success you dont have to change anything. No matter how far you have progressed in your baseball career, even if you are in the major leagues, you should always revert back to the basics when you run into a problem. And it may be that you only have to make a minor change in one of the basics in order to correct your problem. Some times it may be that you have to make minor adjustments to more than one of the basics. For example, you could improve your swing by reducing the distance of your swing in order to get a faster swing, or maybe you have to make an adjustment to your stride, or both. The best way to make a cut fastball or slider curve is to rotate your thumb upward and rotate your index and middle downward when you release the ball. Curve balls are much harder to throw when there are men on base. And it is easier to throw a fastball (2 seam or 4 seam), change-up, splitnger fastball when there are men on base. When you throw a split-nger fastball you must not twist your wrist when you release the ball. Most major league hitters can hit a straight fastball. And in order to get more movement on your fastball you would release the ball off your thumb side or ring side of your pitching hand as you release the ball. It is a good idea for a pitcher to have a copper ball (or something similar) the size of a baseball to play around with between innings in the dugout. This will make the baseball a lot lighter when you go out to pitch. The amount a batter crouches down varies from standing straight up to crouching down low. Some batters like to crouch down low in order to try and swing close to the level at which the ball is coming in. If you crouch down, dont come up as you swing at a pitch. The ball is going down and you are coming up. Other batters stand straight up because they feel they can see the ball better when it is thrown. If a pitcher has his rhythm hitters should concentrate on making contact with the ball. Many things can affect your playing ability such as medications, foods that you eat, sugar, salt (lunch meat), weather, alcohol, etc. Keep both hands on the bat until you complete your swing. Hitters should have their lead foot down and also their heel down before they swing. This gives better balance. Sinker ball pitchers: if it starts off low let it go. Most hitters will do better if they stand motionless in the batters box and dont move the bat around. Some

Republican fringe is risking chaos

It is very interesting to hear the Republican members of the House ascribe their efforts to defund the Affordable Care Act, or repeal it, to the fact that they want to save Americans from it. They have not looked at the polls which indicate that millions are looking forward to having health care. They are focusing on a single agenda item, dictated by their gerrymandered districts, which want to believe that those who dont have health care dont deserve health care, because they dont have jobs. The House wont acknowledge that there are no jobs because they wont enact any jobproducing laws. They also wont work to come up with any alternative health care plans because they dont believe that those folks deserve it. Of course, there is an alternative issue at work here, i.e.: they just dont want President Obama to have a success. So as part of the circular ring squad no Affordable Health Care Act no new mental health care no new action to help brain-sick people who get guns and do horrible mass shootings. They also dont want to enact any sensible gun control laws. And so it goes, one dumb thing leads to another and we, the people, suffer. The icing on the cake will be the decision to shut the government down on Oct. 1. Every day that the government will be shut down will cost the American taxpayers $100 million, not a good way to spend our money. If this then leads to a default on our debts, it will produce another recession or worse. Maybe it is time for us, the people, to decide that we dont want to pay their salaries. What makes these people believe that this is why they were elected to serve in the House of Representatives? What were we thinking? I must admit that I am angry, disappointed and dumbfounded that one small group of our elected representatives thinks they have the right to hold the rest of us hostage to their misbegotten agenda. This strikes me as being totally un-American. I have not missed an election, primary, local, state or federal since I voted for Dwight Eisenhower my very rst time to vote. I believe this is my duty and right as an American. The chaos that our elected public servants have produced currently does not represent what the Founding Fathers wrote for us. Let us pray that they will come to their senses before it is too late.

Less than two years ago, the new Luzerne County Home Rule government began to change the way Luzerne County governs itself. As I listen to residents throughout the county, I am often asked: So whats really different, except now there are 11 council members instead of 3 commissioners? When it comes to reforming the past practices of Luzerne County government, most people would like to see major changes happen quickly. From my perspective as the only Independent on the County Council, important changes are happening, though not as quickly as we would like. Changing government is not simple. But progress is being made. County Council is now implementing sound scal and budget practices that have put us on a path to pay down our debt and budget our money wisely. We are modernizing, improving efciencies and increasing transparency in county government. New systems are being put in place to improve services to citizens by raising performance expectations, while simultaneously treating county staff fairly and with respect. Many dedicated citizens, not previously included in past political processes, are now serving on boards, authorities and commissions. And the Council is considering long term policies to improve the health, safety and economic development of our county to make Luzerne County an even better place to live, work and visit. I am running for a second term on Luzerne County Council to continue this work because I believe these changes are essential to achieving ethical, excellent and accountable county government the level of service the people of Luzerne County expect and deserve. I hope citizens will consider the hard work that the Council has devoted to building a foundation for the future and will support me with a vote in the Nov. 5 election.

Decision could cost a significant amount of money

LIU losing battle on retroactive pay raises

MARK GUYDISH KINGSTON The Luzerne Intermediate Unit lost another round in a protracted legal ght that could cost a hefty amount of retroactive teacher pay. Union lead negotiator John Holland said the LIU has no more recourse to appeal, but LIU negotiator attorney John Audi said that is not true. The dispute centers on the expired teachers contract that has been in negotiations for more than three years. The contract expired Aug. 31, 2010, and teachers have been working under the terms of the old contract without getting any raises. The union contends teachers legally should have received a step raise in 2010-11 even though the contract expired Aug. 31, 2010. Teacher contracts give raises every year up to a set number of years, called steps. The unions position hinged on a matter of days: It argued that the rst day of work that school year was Aug. 23, so the contract was still in effect and thus they still should have received the annual step raise for 2010-11 The union sought and got an arbitration hearing and the arbiter ruled in its favor. The LIU, which provides various services to area schools, primarily special education, appealed that decision in county court, where a judge ruled that precedent, including a case in Northwest Area in 2005, makes it clear a court cannot overturn an arbiters decision unless that decision is indisputably and genuinely without basis in the contract. Audi appealed the case to the Commonwealth Court, prompting the county court judge, Michael Vough, to issue an explanation of his decision and why it should be upheld. That explanation notes such an appeal must be based on errors by the lower court and not on alleged errors by the arbiter. The explanation notes that that Audi failed to allege any errors by this court, and that the appeal thus should be upheld. Holland said that means Audi can no longer appeal the case because he has no grounds to do so, but Audi disagreed, saying Vough initially issued a one-sentence ruling

without any explanation other than citing the Northwest Area precedent. I appealed to Commonwealth Court, and you have to tell why you are appealing the lower court order, Audi said. But the lower court didnt really issue an analysis. Audi said he can still take the case to Commonwealth Court and get a hearing, but that the LIU board, composed of representatives from the school boards of the 12 member districts, can also decide to pay the money, which would mean giving teachers the step increase for 201011 and the same amount for each year since. He didnt know how much that would come to but said Its a signicant amount of money.

Gas scare
From page 1A air around the school, said DEP spokeswoman Colleen Connolly. Connolly also said that while DEP would like to receive notice of planned venting, the pipeline company is not required by law to notify the state agency. Galicki and Township Emergency Management Agency Coordinator Alan Pugh said the company had apparently made some notications but did not follow protocol. Galicki said someone had called him Wednesday afternoon around 4 p.m. and he had immediately directed them to call township supervisors and EMA, who would in turn give the district directions on how to handle any issue. Those communications did not occur, Galicki said. Someone dropped the ball. Williams responds In an email, Williams spokesman Chris Stockton said company officials gave written word of the planned venting on Sept. 20 and by phone Wednesday to school district, township and emergency management administrators. Stockton said they notified local officials again Thursday before the 10:30 a.m. release from pipeline portions between Lower Demunds and Hildebrandt roads. Stockton said gas was released, but methane is lighter than air so it floated into the atmosphere. Mercaptan the odorant added because methane has no scent is heavier than air, and if the wind is right, it could drift to populated areas, Stockton said. Galicki said the release should not have occurred during school hours even if it was only the odorant. We are going to demand that there be no type of activity during school hours, Galicki said. They can release the gas and they can control everything but the wind, Pugh said. Obviously, they did smell gas here, its a concern, and we had a few other businesses in the area, including a supermarket that temporarily evacuated. Pugh said such problems can be avoided through timely notification and following protocol. Township Supervisor Elizabeth Martin said Williams employees contacted her office but did not provide information about the planned venting. They called here and they came here, but they never gave their information Never left a message, never asked to get a hold of me, left a name or number, nothing, Martin said. Martin said she knew of no written notice to the township or the school district. Shortened school day Classes resumed, but many parents picked up their children, Galicki said, a fact made obvious when his press briefing was interrupted by an announcement over the public address system calling a long list of students to the main entrance for early dismissal. Jane Tolomello went promptly to the school to get her nieces. She was frustrated at the apparent communications breakdown. They dont know what it is and theyre not prepared, Tolomello said. They have never put an evacuation plan in place. Tolomello received a notice from Williams on Sept. 20 and took it to the township office, where officials there had no word of the procedure. I gave it to them so they could make the rest of the announcements, Tolomello said. The notice was posted on the townships website. Martin echoed Tolomellos sentiment. There should have been a drill for this. We should have been more prepared, Martin said. Stockton said the company regrets concerns and inconveniences caused by the venting and plans to follow up with school officials on improving communication. We make a continuous and deliberate effort to be a good and inconspicuous neighbor and we regret when we cause any disturbance to the community, Stockton said

From page 1A include but are not limited to continuously improving customer service and increasing customer satisfaction, and in adding a signicant number of eld construction jobs to perform work associated with the Companys infrastructure replacement and betterment programs. According to the settlement, the investigation in the local incident was launched thanks to a UGIPenn Natural Gas whistleblower who reported that improper clamps were used to repair a leak on a high-pressure gas distribution line along Business Route 309 in the vicinity of the Sheetz gas station last year. The report found the clamps, which are pressure rated at 100 pounds per square inch, are not considered suitable for a permanent repair on a pipe operating at 320 pounds per square inch. Although no serious consequences resulted from this incident, the potential for serious consequences to occur was signicant, according to the 47-page report dated Aug. 16 and led on the PUCs website Tuesday. Therefore, (the Bureau of Investigations and Enforcement) submits that UGI-PNG s alleged conduct is of a serious nature and was considered in arriving at the substantial civil penalty in this settlement. A history of violations was taken into consideration when determining the penalty, the ndings of a PUC investigation shows, noting that in the past ve years UGI-PNG or its subsidiaries have been involved in at least nine cases arising from alleged gas safety violations. Earlier this year, the company was ned $500,000 for a 2011 explosion that killed ve in Allentown. At the time, the $500,000 was the highest allowable penalty under the law.

From page 1A and several rank-andle Republicans said the House simply wont accept a clean spending measure, even though thats been the norm in Congress on dozens of occasions since the 199596 government closures that bruised Republicans and strengthened the hand of Democratic President Bill Clinton. I dont see that happening, Boehner said. Still, he declared that I have no interest in a government shutdown and he doesnt expect one to occur on Tuesday. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said the Democratic-led chamber will not relent. The Senate will never pass a bill that guts the Affordable Care Act, Reid declared. A partial government shutdown would keep hundreds of thousands of federal workers off the job, close national parks and generate damaging headlines for whichever side the public held responsible. Washington faces two deadlines: The Oct. 1 start of the new budget year and a mid-October date now estimated for the 17th when the government can no longer borrow money to pay its bills on time and in full. The rst deadline requires Congress to pass a spending bill to allow agencies to stay open. The mid-month deadline requires Congress to increase the governments $16.7 trillion borrowing cap to avoid a rst-ever default on its payments, which include interest obligations, Social Security benets, payments to thousands of contractors large and small, and salaries for the military. The standoff just four days before the end of the scal year increased the possibility of a shutdown, with no signs of compromise. The No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, Dick Durbin of Illinois, said that because of the time it takes the Senate to approve even non-controversial bills, if the House amends a Senate-passed spending bill and returns it to the Senate over the weekend, That is a concession on their part that were going to shut down the government. Not far from the Capitol, at a community college in Largo, Md., Obama insisted he would not negotiate over his signature domestic achievement, either on a bill to keep the government operating or legislation to raise the nations borrowing authority. The entire world looks to us to make sure that the world economy is stable. You dont mess with that, Obama said of the debt ceiling/default measure. And thats why I will not negotiate on anything when it comes to the full faith and credit of the United States of America. Responding to Obamas non-negotiable stand, Boehner said, Well, Im sorry but it just doesnt work that way. Meeting behind closed doors, House Republican leaders encountered resistance from their rank and le over the debt limit measure even though they were attaching a list of other Republican favorites such as green-lighting the Keystone XL oil pipeline, blocking federal regulation of greenhouse gases and boosting offshore oil exploration. Republicans who lost the presidential election and a shot at Senate control last year are trying to use must-pass measures to advance agenda items that the Democratic-led Senate and Obama have soundly rejected. The last-ditch effort on Obamacare comes just days before coast-to-coast enrollment in the plans health care exchanges begins Oct. 1. Despite the popular items, the leadership was struggling to win over its recalcitrant GOP members, especially tea partybacked lawmakers pressing for deeper, decit-cutting spending measures. The spending cuts the Republicans would attach to the debt-limit legislation would be likely to represent a small fraction of the almost $1 trillion in new borrowing authority the bill would permit. Among conservatives, theres a lot of angst about that, said Rep. John Fleming, R-La. Proposed changes include requiring federal workers to contribute more to their pensions, along with other items from a failed 2011 decitcutting effort. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., the chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, insisted that the House accept the Senate bill. Republicans have got to put an end to the tea party temper tantrums and pass our bill without any gimmicks and without any games, she said. In the Senate, top Democrat Reid sought to schedule a series of votes Thursday night to speed the short-term spending bill to the House. Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Mike Lee, R-Utah, blocked the effort, however, saying they wanted the vote today. Cruz gave a 21 hourplus speech earlier this week opposing the measure if it is changed to remove the anti-Obamacare provisions.

From page 1A I thought it was a lot harder than it is, said Mirra, whose sister Megan is also in the club. The students have clipped coupons from Sunday newspapers plus created drop boxes on campus for other students and staff members to drop off their unwanted coupons each week. Assistant Director of Admissions Kristen Andrews, the clubs adviser and a coupon clipper herself, has one of the drop off bins in her ofce and joked that she loves leaving her ofce and returning to a stack of coupons that have been dropped off. Its like the Coupon Fairy showed up. I love the Coupon Fairy, Andrews said. While the newspaper glossy inserts are still a key part of a coupon clippers arsenal, thanks to technology, online coupons that can be printed and redeemed have also become popular. While most of those sites, including, limit each computer to print up to two coupons, the benets of a large college campus with plenty of computers and computer labs means than students are able to really get a lot of the really good coupons. Show college students the power of coupons, combined with the power of college students and what we can achieve together, and this is what you get, Orchard said as he stood in front of a large display of all the items purchased thus far by the club.

Meyers focus is on Lehman

ed a forfeit victory over Valley View when it was determined Valley View used an ineligible player in its and hows this for irony 26-21 victory. The domino effect of both events put Meyers in a fourth-place tie in the District 2 Class 2A standings with Mid Valley instead of in third with a fairly comfortable lead. And Lakeland is in second instead of fourth. As a coach, Ill look back at (the Trail) game for the rest of the season, Meyers coach Corry Hanson said. Trail is going to win a good amount of games. If were fortunate enough to get to the postseason, those points would have helped us. Ill look back at that game all season long. However, I preach to my team its over and done with and theres nothing we can do. You have to move on. Meyers cant be sulking tonight. Lehman

Meyers is doing a balancing act. The Mohawks are looking straight ahead, where Lake-Lehman awaits at 7 p.m. today at Wilkes-Barre Memorial Stadium. At the same time, theyre also trying not to look back too much. A couple twists of fate have put Meyers (2-2) in a vulnerable spot as it faces the Black Knights (3-1). The Mohawks had the ability to control one of them but not the other. The rst came two weeks ago at Lackawanna Trail. Meyers led 21-7 at halftime and 21-14 entering the fourth quarter. The run defense a culprit in a few losses in 2012 was playing extremely well. Things went awry in the nal 12 minutes and Meyers left on the wrong end of a 26-21 score. Then last week, Lakeland (3-1) was award-

has steamrolled its last three opponents after a 13-7 season-opening loss at Class A power Old Forge. The Black Knights have done so with an impressive running game. Dustin Jones, a 240-pound fullback, is the power guy. Sophomore wingback Joey Vigil can turn the corner in an instant. Running back Brady Butler is a mixture of the two. When youre running the football and you keep getting that bang and that bang and that bang over and over again, it wears teams down, Lehman coach Jerry Gilsky said. Give me a situation when we need to throw the ball and well throw the ball. The Lehman trio has combined for six 100-yard rushing performance through four games.

Fresh off a shutout of Nanticoke, the Meyers defense will have its hands full tonight with Lake-Lehman bruiser Dustin Jones and the Black Knights tough ground game.

End of an era in New York

AP Sports Writer


NEW YORK Mariano Rivera said goodbye to Yankee Stadium with hugs, tears and cheers. Baseballs most acclaimed relief pitcher made an emotional exit in his nal appearance in the Yankees home pinstripes, when captain Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte came to the mound to remove him with two outs in the ninth inning of a 4-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night. Its time to go, Jeter appeared to

tell Rivera. Tampa Bay won its seventh straight and leads the AL wild-card race. During four minutes of thunderous chanting from the sellout crowd 48,675, an overcome Rivera sobbed as he buried his head on the shoulder of Pettitte, who also is retiring when the season ends Sunday, and then hugged Jeter. It was an extraordinary sight in a sport where a manager almost always goes to the mound to make a pitching change. Yankees See YANKEES | 7B


NEW YORK Mariano Rivera may make a debut on his nal weekend before retirement: as a centerelder. The 43-year-old closer, in his 19th and nal big league season, has said hed like to play the outeld. Yankees manager Joe Girardi says hes thinking about allowing Rivera to do it this weekend, when the Yankees nish their season with a three-game series at the Houston Astros. Says Girardi: In my mind, thinking that hes going to want to pitch, it would be a situation that I might bring him in (in) the eighth to play the outeld and close him out in the ninth if we have that opportunity. Rivera missed most of the 2012 season after hurting his knee while shagging y balls during pregame practice at Kansas City.

BROCTON, N.Y. It was a question with no right answer that tugged heavy at the hearts of Damon Janes teammates when the 16-year-old died after a hit in a high school football game: Should the season go on? Should the players rally and play every game for their star running back, whose motto was Giving up is simply not an option? Or should the teenagers forget about football and take time to mourn their friend? The Westeld-Brocton Wolverines varsity players took a paper-ballot vote and decided that the pain was too great, that their season would end after just two games. I wanted to play, I love the game, said teammate Stevie Wisecarver III, a 16-year-old quarterback who has played football since third grade. But it just wouldnt feel right without him. The team just didnt feel right. See DEATH | 3B

Selig to retire in January 2015

AP Sports Writer

RONALD BLUM NEW YORK Bud Selig said Thursday he plans to retire as baseball commissioner in January 2015 after a term of more than 22 years marked by robust growth in attendance and revenue Selig along with a canceled World Series and a drug scandal. The 79-year-old Selig said in 2003 that he would retire in 2006 but has repeatedly accepted new contracts. Some owners even his wife have been skeptical in the past that he really would do it, but this marked the rst time he issued a formal statement that he intends to step down from the sports top job.

I look forward to continuing its extraordinary growth and addressing several signicant issues during the remainder of my term, he said. Selig said he will soon announce a transition plan that will include a reorganization of central baseball management. He said he will leave on Jan. 24, 2015, which would mark the second-longest term for a baseball commissioner behind Kenesaw Mountain Landis, who served from November 1920 to November 1944. Seligs tenure included splitting each league into three divisions instead of two, adding wild cards and additional rounds of playoffs, expansion to Arizona and Tampa Bay, instituting instant replay, starting the World Baseball

Classic, launching the Major League Baseball Network and centralizing the sports digital rights under The game has grown under him tremendously. Hes made every effort to try to clean the game up, New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. Hes left his mark on the game. Theres no doubt about it. Selig bought the Seattle Pilots in bankruptcy court in 1970 and moved the team to Milwaukee. He became a leading owner by the early 1980s in his role as chairman of the Player Relations Committee, which determined labor policy. He was part of the group that forced Fay See SELIG | 7B

EDITORS NOTE: At press time, San Francisco led St. Louis 35-11 late in the fourth quarter. ST. LOUIS Anquan Boldin sparked San Franciscos offense with two big second-quarter receptions, including a 20-yarder for a touchdown, and Frank Gore ran for a season-high 146 yards and a score to help the 49ers build a 21-3 lead over St. Louis after three quarters Thursday night. Boldin, who had a monster debut with the 49ers after beating them in the Super Bowl, twisted past Cortland Finnegan even though Finnegan was agged for holding and caught a 42-yard pass from Colin Kaepernick for San Franciscos second-biggest gain of the season. Gore more than doubled his output from the previous

three weeks, surpassing 100 yards rushing with a 34-yard TD run late in the rst half. Kaepernick then engineered another scoring drive early in the third quarter, nishing it off with a 12-yard scoring pass to Vernon Davis. Kaepernick accounted for 70 of San Franciscos 88 yards on the ensuing drive, 63 passing and a 7-yard scramble. Davis, who had been questionable because of a hamstring injury, broke open for an easy catch in the left side of the end zone to push the lead to 21-3. Acquired by San Francisco for only a sixthround pick in the offseason, Boldin had 208 yards on 13 catches in a season-opening win over Green Bay. But he had just one catch the following week in a loss to division rival Seattle and a mediocre 67-yard outing against Indianapolis on Sunday. Boldin had 90 yards on ve catches Thursday night.

Steelers defense losing turnover battle

Associated Press


PITTSBURGH The Pittsburgh Steelers created just 20 turnovers in 2012. Through three games this season they are on pace for considerably less. The Steelers defense has played 190 snaps through three games and been unable to get the ball even once. Still, defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau does not believe the team is pressing even though Pittsburgh is the only team in the league not to generate a turnover through the seasons rst three weeks. No, I dont think its been to that extent, LeBeau said Thursday. So, I think were going to get some turnovers. Weve had the ball out,

and weve had the ball bouncing around. We just didnt get it. Theres no question that weve got to help our guys and get some turnovers to get some eld position. Weve got to do better there. Theres no doubt about that. Pittsburghs only real chance came last week against Chicago when cornerback William Gay jarred the ball loose from Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery. Jeffery managed to fall on it and a chance for the Steelers (0-3) to ip the eld was lost. The lack of a pass rush isnt helping. The Steelers have just three sacks. I always want more sacks, but I think were getting good pressure on the quarterback, LeBeau said. And our third-down numbers are

pretty good, and that usually means youre getting some pressure on the quarterback. LeBeau generally doesnt like to blitz unless he has to, but he sent waves of players after Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler last week. Still, the sacks were limited to defensive end Brett Keisel and outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley. We just havent had any, and thats the truth, Steelers strong safety Troy Polamalu said. When you get turnovers, its kind of a thing when the games are tight, quarterbacks dont want to take the risk. And theyre not putting quarterbacks in a position to turn the ball over. So, its a lot tougher. Thats what makes it tough getting turnovers. The defense is expected to get a boost from

the return of cornerback Cortez Allen, who has missed the past 2 games with an ankle injury. Allen made an immediate impact when he entered the lineup last season, and he nished with three forced fumbles, one recovered and two interceptions. Maybe Allen is all the Steelers need to nally get a spark. It has nothing to do with me, Allen said. When I get in there, I try to contribute to it as best as I can, but thats a collective battle, a collective mission and goal no matter whos in there. So, thats everybodys job. I dont take the weight of everything on me. My approach to it is that Im going to do whatever I can to help us win, and I hope to do it by creating some turnovers.

Pryor limited at practice for Raiders

AP Sports Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. The Tennessee Titans will go as far this season as Jake Locker takes them. Thats been the conventional wisdom since owner Bud Adams approved spending more than $100 million to shore up the defense, better protect the young quarterback and to give Locker more help on offense. Now Locker is coming off arguably his best game in just his 14th start. Locker, Peyton Manning and Alex Smith are the only starting quarterbacks yet to be intercepted in their rst three games. Behind Locker, the Titans are off to an unexpected 2-1 start with the New York Jets (2-1) up next on Sunday. Coach Mike Munchak believes it has helped his third-year quarterback knowing he was the starter from Day 1 this year and that Locker has gotten better each game. Weve been talking about what we think he can do, Munchak said. He hasnt put in one full season yet. I think hes going to do this a lot more when necessary. Everyone knows how we feel about him, but it has to happen on the eld. We get that, we all know that, and so does he. I think he had the opportunity presented to him and went 94 yards. Lockers accuracy has been his biggest issue and the reason why so many people questioned Tennessee for making him the eighth overall draft pick in 2011. This offseason, the Titans brought in three new starters to bolster the offensive line and better protect Locker. They also signed a new tight end in Delanie Walker and drafted another receiver in Justin Hunter to give him as much help as possible. Against San Diego, Locker got the ball at the Titans 6 with 2:05 left and no timeouts trailing 20-13. Locker completed seven passes to six different receivers and capped the drive by throwing a 34-yard touchdown pass to Hunter with 15 seconds left for a 20-17 victory. It was the second straight

week Locker led a successful fourth-quarter drive of 90-plus yards. He took the Titans 99 yards for a TD in a 30-24 overtime loss at Houston Unlike quarterbacks like Russell Grifn III, Russell Wilson or even Cam Newton, Locker didnt start as a rookie. He won the starting job in training camp going into his second season but hurt his left, nonthrowing shoulder in the opener. He missed ve games after aggravating the injury and wound up throwing for 2,176 yards with 10 touchdowns and 11 interceptions for a 74 passer rating. He completed just 56.4 percent of his passes. The Titans havent asked Locker to take over games throwing yet. He is completing more of his passes at a rate of 58.6 percent and has three TD passes. Jets coach Rex Ryan sees an improving quarterback in Locker. Clearly, hes always been great at running when he tucks that ball in and runs, Ryan said. I think hes averaged about 7 yards a carry throughout his career. Hes a dual-threat that way because he can run with it, but hes become more accurate as a passer.

ALAMEDA, Calif. Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday, three days after being knocked out with a concussion, and his status for Sundays game remains in question. Pryor passed a concussion test Wednesday that allowed him to return to practice but he still must be cleared for contact before the Raiders (1-2) decide whether to play him Sunday against Washington (0-3). Theres still some hurdles that he has to clear but he was cleared to go ahead and noncontact practice, coach Dennis Allen said. He was able to get in there and practice some on a limited basis today. During the part of practice open to the media, Pryor did conditioning without a helmet and watched backups Matt Flynn and Matt McGloin run practice. But Allen said that Pryor put the helmet on later and got some plays in with his teammates. Allen said hed like to know as soon as possible about Pryors status and that he wont speculate about whether Pryor will play until doctors clear him for contact. Pryor was hurt late in Monday nights loss in Denver when he was knocked out on a helmet-to-helmet hit by linebacker Wesley Woodyard on a quarterback draw. The play was determined to be legal by

the NFL because Pryor was a runner between the tackles. Pryor was cleared to attend meetings and have physical activity Wednesday and passed an additional test after that to allow him to practice. Pryor said Wednesday it was his rst concussion and described the symptoms as mild. But because of the uncertainty, offensive coordinator Greg Olson has had to design two game plans this week: one that includes designed quarterback runs for the more mobile Pryor, who leads the team with 198 yards rushing, and one for the more tradi-

tional pocket passer Flynn. Its a few tweaks here and there really, Olson said. Obviously youll be able to add the option of some of the things were doing with Terrelle in the run game. But to be honest with you, since Terrelle has taken over, weve done some of those things when Matt has gotten in and taken some of the few reps that he has. Hes done some of those things and hes comfortable with that. Hes obviously not the athlete that Terrelle is but as far as knowing when to pull the ball and when to hand it off, hes good at that.

Irish LBs face comparisons with Teo

Associated Press


SOUTH BEND, Ind. At rst glance, Notre Dame linebackers Jaylon Smith and Jarrett Grace dont appear to have a lot in common other than being starters the 22nd-ranked Fighting Irish are counting on to help slow No. 14 Oklahomas offense. Smith started for the Irish just four days after attending his rst college class and was in on the tackle on the rst play. Grace didnt play as a freshman, was primarily a special teams player as a sophomore and didnt get his rst start until last week, the fourth game of his junior season. He is listed as a starter again when the Irish (3-1) face the Sooners (3-0) on Saturday. The 6-3, 233-pound Smith was a ve-star recruit from Fort Wayne who drew headlines when he announced where he was going to school while

Grace, who is 6-3 and weighs 253, was a less-heralded recruit from Cincinnati who had to wait and work for his opportunity. They have a common thread that binds them, though: inevitable comparisons to Manti Teo. Grace because he is trying to replace the Heisman Trophy runner-up at middle linebacker and Smith because he is the highestrated recruit Notre Dame has signed since Teo famously arrived on campus. Both say the comparisons to the rookie San Diego Chargers linebacker dont add any pressure. Honestly, I dont feel it at all, Grace said. We have a great relationship. I support him and he supports me. Smith, who accomplished something Teo didnt in becoming the rst Irish linebacker to start his rst game since Kory Minor did it in 1995, said hes just focused on trying to learn the

college game. He set his own legacy. Im just here trying to contribute any way I can, he said. Smith has contributed so far with 11 tackles, one for loss, with one pass breakup. The Irish had expected Smith to start the season as a backup, but he won the starters job after returning starter Danny Spond abruptly decided to end his playing career after suffering for the second straight year from a hemiplegic migraine, a rare form of headache that causes temporary stroke-like symptoms. Spond still attends practices and is helping Smith learn the position of drop linebacker, which can include everything from covering receivers to taking on 300-pound linemen. He will be called on to do AP photo all those things against Oklahoma, Notre Dame linebacker Jarrett Grace (right) and his freshman teammate Jaylon Smith, have a comwhich is averaging 272 yards a game mon thread that binds them in comparisons to Manti Teo. running and 219 yards passing.

From page 1B Added 17-year-old senior cornerback Joey Villafrank: It feels like theres more to life. Before, football used to be life for me; it was the only sport I played. But now I realize that theres more than just playing the game. Its a grief thats spread through the close-knit villages of Brocton and Westeld, tucked amid grape farms about an hours drive south of Buffalo, where the oncerival high schools were forced to combine their teams three seasons ago because of budget cuts. Townspeople have held vigils, lighted candles and released balloons. Theyve stayed up nights making ribbons and cookies as fundraisers for the Janes family. The Green Arch Restaurant is contributing apple pies. Hair salons are dyeing streaks of blue and green, reecting Westelds school colors of blue and white and Broctons of green. Memorial T-shirts with Damons motto are being printed. And a spaghetti dinner benet at the Nickel Plate Depot planned for Sunday is expected to draw hundreds. Its just a tragic thing that happened, 71-yearold Harold Montague said as he nished his coffee at the Green Arch, recalling a procession for Damons funeral that stretched for more than a mile and a half. A lots been done that Ive never seen before. Damon took what hospital ofcials would later describe as a helmet-to-helmet hit during the third quarter of Westeld-Broctons Sept.

13 game against Portville, a 32-6 loss. He was able to get on his feet but lost consciousness on the sidelines. He died three days later at Women & Childrens Hospital in Buffalo. An exact cause of death has not been released. In his obituary, his

family wrote that Damon liked shing, hunting and just about every kind of sport soccer, basketball, ice skating, motocross and snowboarding. He put 110 percent into everything he did, it said. His motto was, Giving up is simply not an option.

SUNRISE, Fla. Vincent Viola grew up in Brooklyn, graduated from West Point, is a former chairman of the New York Mercantile Exchange and after the Sept. 11 attacks founded a center devoted to combating terrorism. Hes now the new owner of the Florida Panthers, said a person familiar with the situation. Viola will be introduced in that role Friday after paying $250 million to buy the NHL franchise, the person said, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the terms have not been made public. The Panthers scheduled a Friday news conference to discuss ownership, but conrmed no other details. Completing the sale will have an immediate effect on the on-ice product, at least in one respect. The move cleared the way for the team to complete the signing of two-time Vezina Trophy winner Tim Thomas, a Stanley Cup-winning goaltender who took last season off before deciding that he wanted to return. The Panthers announced Thursday evening that Thomas signed a one-year deal. Thomas has been with the Panthers

on a tryout deal, and it was believed that the team was waiting for the ownership change to be completed before wrapping up his signing. Tim is a proven winner who we are pleased to have signed, Panthers general manager Dale Tallon said. He is a erce competitor who brings to our club a wealth of experience including a Stanley Cup Championship, two Vezina trophies and a Conn Smythe. He is a hardworking, driven and dedicated individual who will help our club achieve future success. Viola will replace Cliff Viner, a longtime Panthers fan who became a cogeneral partner of the team in 2009 and took over as general partner, chairman and CEO the following year. I know the parties are working very hard on a transaction and theyre going to try to consummate it as quickly as possible, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said earlier this week. Panthers sign Thomas Tim Thomas is ofcially back in the NHL. The Stanley Cup-winning goalie signed a one-year contract Thursday with the Florida Panthers, a move that was expected for several days. Financial terms were not released.

Selinsgrove (3-1) at Berwick (4-0) 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Selinsgroves Dave Hess (50-21, 6th year); Berwicks George Curry (427-92-5, 44th year) Last Meeting: Berwick 17-7 in 2012 All-Time Series: Berwick leads 16-10 Quick Fact: Selinsgrove averaged 1.6 yards per carry vs. Berwick last year. Scouting Selinsgrove: The Seals enter off a dominating 42-13 performance against Shamokin. The defense controlled Shamokin, allowing one offensive score. The Selinsgrove offense showed balance like it has all season. Junior QB Isaiah Rapp is a capable thrower. There are three quality running backs as well senior Connor Liesenfeld, junior Zach Adams and sophomore Angelo Martin. Scouting Berwick: The Dawgs finally broke open their game with rival Valley West late in the third quarter, scoring three consecutive TDs for a 42-28 victory. Berwick took to the ground in the second half as its run-pass ratio was 31-4. RB Dain Kowalski made amends for a costly fumble early to score the final two TDs. RB Nate Maczuga looked good toting the ball. The Dawgs showed they have a lot of guys capable of making plays. What To Expect: Berwick got over a big hump last Friday only to find another on Crispin Field in the form of Selinsgrove, an old-time rival prior to the Dawgs joining the WVC. They cant afford a letdown vs. the Seals John Erzar

Nanticoke (1-3) at Wyoming Area (1-3) 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Nanticokes Ron Bruza (12-21, 4th year); Wyoming Areas Randy Spencer (32-28, 6th year) Last Meeting: Wyoming Area 44-14 in 2012 All-Time Series: Wyoming Area leads 32-6-1 Quick Fact: Wyoming Area led just 14-7 at halftime last year. Scouting Nanticoke: The Trojans came into the season with just about every starter back. Expectations were high; results have been low with the only victory coming against winless Columbia-Montour Vo-Tech. The offense hit rock bottom last Friday in a 36-0 loss to Meyers. The running game, Nanticokes bread-andbutter, has just 81 yards in the last two games combined. The Trojans have had some success here and there throwing the ball, but the offense isnt designed to lean in that direction. Scouting Wyoming Area: It was far from pretty, but the 20-12 win over Hanover Area could be the boost the young Warriors needed. They took advantage of Hanover Area miscues as Ryan Murray recovered a fumble and picked off a pass at critical junctures. The defense hasnt been all that bad, save for the Lake-Lehman debacle. The offense, though, has been hacking and wheezing throughout as the Warriors continue to search for playmakers. The search could take some time. What To Expect: This is about as even as the teams have been in quite some time. Still, that doesnt means Wyoming Area wont have enough to win. John Erzar

Lake-Lehman (3-1) at Meyers (2-2) 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Lehmans Jerry Gilsky (21-15, 4th year); Meyers Corry Hanson (10-15, 3rd year) Last Meeting: Lehman 50-29 in 2012 All-Time Series: Meyers leads 28-16 Quick Fact: Meyers led 14-13 at halftime last year before Lehman scored 30 thirdquarter points. Scouting Lehman: The Black Knights have trampled their last three opponents, with Holy Redeemer the last victim in a 61-22 victory last Friday. A couple late TDs by Redeemer were window dressing. Three guys went over 100 yards on the ground for Lehman, with 240-pound Dustin Jones (172 yds.) leading the way. RB Brady Butler topped 100 for a second consecutive game. The Black Knights threw one pass and have tossed just six in their last three games. Really, there was no need to bother. However, they might need to air it out some tonight. Scouting Meyers: Meyers showed no ill effects from a 26-21 loss to Lackawanna Trail two weeks ago, shutting out Nanticoke 36-0. QB Matt DeMarco continues to run the ball well out of the read-option attack. A bonus, though, has been the converted receivers throwing the last two games. Hes 10-of-14 with two TDs in that span. RB Nate Mahalak is the lunchpail guy in the backfield. Except for a glitch against powerful Old Forge, the run defense has been stellar. What To Expect: This will be Lehmans toughest game since the opener at Old Forge. The Black Knights have too many weapons and can attack from too many angle for Meyers to handle. John Erzar

Williamsport (1-3) at Dallas (0-4) 1 p.m. Saturday

The Coaches: Williamsports Kevin Choate (1-13, 2nd year); Dallas Bob Zaruta (7-8, 2nd year) Last Meeting: Dallas 31-7 in 2012 All-Time Series: Dallas leads 4-1 Quick Fact: Williamsport had a season-low 102 yards of offense when the teams played last year. Scouting Williamsport: The Millionaires left Central Mountain with a 24-21 victory in their season opener. They also left their offense there. Williamsport hasnt scored an offensive TD in its last three games. The only touchdown came via kick return. Last Fridays 30-7 loss to Hazleton Area was quite disappointing since Hazleton Area hadnt played well defensively in its first three games. Its starting to look like another year where the wheels come off by mid-season. Scouting Dallas: The Mountaineers saw their losing streak hit five with a 7-0 setback against Coughlin. Cant fault the defense. It shut down Coughlins running game and has played well for the most part this year. The offense has been well off course, with Dallas only score this season a late TD vs. Berwick in Week 3. The running game is non-existent and Dallas didnt help matters with four turnovers vs. Coughlin. What To Expect: Williamsport isnt playing well on either side of the ball. Dallas, at least, is playing well defensively. That should allow the Mountaineers to snap their slide. John Erzar

Tunkhannock (1-3) at Crestwood (3-1) 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Tunkhannocks Rod Azar (4-20, 3rd year); Crestwoods Greg Myers (51-49, 8th year) Last Meeting: Crestwood 27-20 in 2012 All-Time Series: Tunkhannock leads 9-6 Quick Fact: Crestwood scored three consecutive second-half TDs last year to erase a 14-6 halftime deficit. Scouting Tunkhannock: The Tigers have been the hard-luck team of the WVC. Two losses by five points or less have tossed them from possible playoff qualifier to also-ran at this point. They dug themselves in a 12-point hole vs. Pittston Area last Friday and could only climb out enough for a 12-10 loss. RB Ryan Cywinski rushed for a career-high 142 yards and enters off consecutive 100-yard efforts. The defense against the run has been solid the past two weeks. Scouting Crestwood: The Comets enter off a big 27-19 victory over Wallenpaupack that catapulted them back into the D2-3A playoff talk. A big defensive stop at the 4-yard line with less than a minute left sealed the win. The defense kept the Buckhorns off the board in the second half, allowing a rally from a five-point deficit. On offense, the running game cooled, but RB Frank Aigeldinger and QB Jay Popson did just enough to prevail. Wallenpaupack outgained Crestwood 325-201. What To Expect: A couple breaks here and there, and we have a pair of 3-1 teams battling it out for a possible playoff position. So thats why Crestwood cant just look at Tunkhannocks record and assume a victory. John Erzar

Northwest (4-0) at Hanover Area (1-3) 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Northwests Carl Majer (37-23, 6th year); Hanover Areas Ron Hummer (35-46, 8th year) Last Meeting: Northwest 34-13 in 2012 All-Time Series: Hanover Area leads 4-2 Quick Fact: Last years game was tied 13-13 entering the fourth quarter. Scouting Northwest: It was another close call for the Rangers last Friday as they edged GAR 26-20. Three victories have come by six points or less, so this is a team living on the edge. RB Austin Mazonkey makes things go. Hes coming off a careerhigh 352 yards rushing vs. GAR. He leads the entire WVC with 811 on the ground. The defense hasnt allowed an opponent more than 120 yards on the ground, but the competition hasnt been top flight. Scouting Hanover Area: Four turnovers proved costly as the Hawkeyes fell to Wyoming Area 20-12. It was the third time this season they had at least three turnovers. Hanover Area doesnt have the firepower to make up for such mistakes. RB Isaiah Taylor has been a pleasant surprise with consecutive 100-yard games. Consistency on both sides of the ball has been wavering, which was expected for the young team. What To Expect: Upset special? Maybe. Northwest has been winning close games and Hanover Area played some pretty good opponents thus far. John Erzar

Pittston Area (1-3) at Hazleton Area (1-3) 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Pittston Areas Mike Barrett (7-17, 3rd year); Hazleton Areas Jim Drumheller (6-18, 3rd year) Last Meeting: Pittston Area 26-21 in 2012 All-Time Series: Hazleton Area leads 16-14 Quick Fact: Hazleton Area committed a season-high five turnovers in last years meeting. Scouting Pittston Area: The Patriots snapped a six-game losing streak last Friday with a 12-10 victory over Tunkhannock. They led 12-0 late in the third quarter. There wasnt much offense for Pittston Area as RB Kyle Gattuso (54 yards) was the leading ground gainer. The defense gave up yardage via the run and hasnt created a turnover since the season opener. Scouting Hazleton Area: The Cougars ended a nine-game slide by routing Williamsport 30-7. RB Zach Zukoski rushed for a career-high 190 yards on a careerhigh 29 rushes. QB Ryan Heller made his first start and had a nice game tossing the ball. The run defense has improved each week. The Cougars have a plus-5 turnover ratio the last three games. What To Expect: Pretty much like last year, a tough game where both teams will have to grind out offense. Hazleton Area gets the edge since Pittston Area has lost 10 of its last 11 games on artificial grass. John Erzar

Coughlin (4-0) at Wyoming Valley West (4-0) 7 p.m. today

The Coaches: Coughlins Ciro Cinti (44-37, 8th year); Valley Wests Pat Keating (34-15, 5th year) Last Meeting: Valley West 12-6 in 2012 All-Time Series: Valley West leads 28-17-3 Quick Fact: The teams combined for less than 400 yards of offense in last years game. Scouting Coughlin: As expected, Coughlin had its hands full with winless Dallas last Friday. A Dave Parsnik TD catch in the third quarter led to the 7-0 win. RB Paul Cole and QB Tim Pilch were coming off 100-yard rushing performance vs. Western Wayne, but neither found much running room. The Crusaders finished with 72 rushing yards after averaging 293.7 in their first three games. The shutout was nice, but came against a struggling offense. Scouting Valley West: The Spartans fell at rival Berwick 42-28 last Friday. The 42 points were the most the Spartans have allowed since surrendering the same in the 2009 season finale against Whitehall. The run defense was carved up a bit in the second half and gave up 254 yards, more than it allowed in the last two games combined. Turnovers, including one at the Berwick 1-yard line late in the first half, were costly. What To Expect: Coughlin always seems to play Valley West tough, but the Crusaders can never get over the hump for a victory. Look for a similar game tonight. John Erzar

Holy Redeemer (1-3) at GAR (0-4) 7 p.m. Saturday

The Coaches: Redeemers Pat Reece (4-10, 2nd year); GARs Paul Wiedlich Jr. (29-12, 4th year) Last Meeting: GAR 68-25 in 2012 All-Time Series: GAR leads 6-0 Quick Fact: GAR pulled away last year with 30 second-quarter points. Scouting Redeemer: Redeemer was overwhelmed by Lake-Lehmans running game in a 61-22 loss last Friday. The Royals saw three Black Knights each rush for over 100 yards. Run defense has been a perennial problem. Redeemer tacked on a couple cosmetic touchdowns at the end to make the score a little more respectable. QB Jimmy Strickland continues to pile up passing yards. But with no running game, defenses only have to scheme for one thing against the Royals. Scouting GAR: Its been an incredibly rough start for GAR, which came into the season with playoff aspirations. Now the Grenadiers will probably have to win out and hope things fall into place. The defense got stampeded via the run for the second time in three weeks as Northwest finished with 362 on the ground in its 26-20 victory last Friday. Offensively, RB Rich Sickler had his second 100-yard game for GAR and QB Rashaun Mathis tossed his first two TD passes of his career. What To Expect: GAR hasnt been tested much through the air and everyone knows Redeemer will throw the ball. If the Grenadiers slow down that then a victory looks likely. John Erzar

Conference teams have had just one 100yard rushing effort or none at all. I approach them like any other opponent, Hanson said. You look at their ve best plays and you have to try to take away their ve best plays and go from there. If theyre able to beat you with their sixth, seventh, eighth best plays then they are a better team. A noticably difference in Meyers this year is is run defense. The Mohawks have held three opponents to under 100 yards rushing. Last year, they held one. Hanson credits

middle linebacker Jacob Brominski and the two big guys in front of him defensive tackles Richard Assuah (340 pounds) and Carlo Telesco (285). He also pointed out the contributions of linebacker T.J. Cistrunk and defensive end Phillip Texidor. Lehmans defense will be trying to stop Meyers new read-option attack. Receiverturned-quarterback Matt DeMarco has run it effectively. He leads the WVC with 10 rushing touchdowns and has 614 yards on 59 carries. Backs like Zahir Dunell, Nate Mahalak and Mark Robinson get enough carries to keep defenses honest.

Crusaders silence Redeemer

Well, thats what weve been talking about. Shes back to doing what she did last year in scoring goals for us. Shes starting to click a little offensively. The Crusaders changed up their game plan in the second half after a seemingly back-and-forth rst half that saw very few favorable scoring chances for either team. We had last nights game against Nanticoke. Theyre a little tired, Spagnuolo said. Playing two games within 24 hours is a little tough. It took them a little while to get their legs under them. Once we settled in, it took care of itself. Coughlin added an insurance goal in the 60th minute when Emma Sukowoski dished a pass to Tona in the middle of two defenders. Tona went left this time to give Coughlin a 2-0 lead. Lydia Lawson came with the Royals best opportunity to equalize a minute following Tonas rst goal. Lawson found an open shot and went high with her shot, allowing Jasmine Barretto to make one of her four saves on the game. Led by Nora Fazzi, the Crusader defense slowed down a Holy Redeemer offense that came into Thursdays match as one of the most potent offenses in the league. Fazzi spotted the Royals Lawson, limiting her to just one scoring chance. We move her around a lot. Shes our best marking back, Spagnuolo said. In the Pittston game, she marked Allie Barber and held her to one shot. Today, she marked Lydia Lawson, one of the big scorers in the league, and held her to a shot. Holy Redeemers defense kept the decit at one with two nice defensive outputs following Tonas rst goal. Autumn Kaminski made a defensive save near the post on a corner kick chance in the 55th. In the 58th, Royal goalkeeper Gabby Tomasura saved a Megan Lercara shot for one of her 22 saves on the game. The victory moved Coughlin (9-2) into sole possession of third place in the WVC. Holy Redeemer falls to 5-3-1 to remain in seventh place.

For The Times Leader

WILKES-BARRE Galloping down the sidelines, Mary Tona ignored the Coughlin fans calls to take a quick strike from 20 yards out. She paused momentarily, opting instead to take her chances getting around two defenders. She made a quick move left, scurrying past a Holy Redeemer defender to the base line. Tona struck a 16-yard ball with her left foot that arced in the air to the far right post where it caromed into the net to end a scoreless drought. Tona scored both of Coughlins goals to lead the Crusaders to a 2-0 shutout of Holy Redeemer Thursday in Wyoming Valley Conference girls soccer action at Eddie White Field. Her game-winning goal came in the 46th minute on a play designed for the Coughlin sophomore. We worked the ball from the middle of eld, Coughlin coach Joe Spagnuolo Jr. said. (Hailee) Dumont gave her a pass to the outside. Mary took her on and had a nish in the upper 90.

The Spartans pulled an upset victory of LakeLehman with a four-goal rst half effort. Alex Hargrave scored two goals, and Michaela Shonk produced a goal and an assist. Wyoming Valley registered two goals in the nal two minutes of the rst half after Lake-Lehmans Kaylee Hillard cut the 2-0 lead in half. Shoshana Mahoney had a goal and an assist for the Black Knights.

Big night on the service line leads Grenadiers

For The Times Leader

WILKES-BARRE Jocelyne Vazquez set the tone from the opening serve, and her teammates were happy to follow her lead. Vazquez ripped off six straight points to open up the match as GAR proved too tough behind the service line en route to a 3-0 victory over Pittston Area in Wyoming Valley Conference play. Game scores were 25-14, 25-18 and 25-11. The win snaps a six-match losing streak for GAR (3-6), while the Patriots are still searching for their rst win in 2013. We are realizing how important the concept of a team is, GAR rst-year head coach Hattie Caruso said. You have to work together to achieve positives and progress forward. No doubt, it was a team effort behind the service line. And Vazquez was a huge part of it. The senior outside hitter had three aces in the rst six points of the rst set, and was more

impressive to start the nal stanza ripping off nine straight points on her serve, ve of them consecutive aces. It wasnt just Vazquez. Junior Brittany Stephenson added six, while GAR combined for 20 team aces. If you are looking for a way to stop a six-match losing streak, thats a pretty good way to start. We have been working hard in the gym every day, perfecting our serves, Caruso said. We work on focusing on service placement, and understanding what serves will be in. We want to be in control of our serves, and understanding where the right spot is. Serving is such a big part of this game. We have to stay focused and keep control there. Having Banessa Flores on your side of the court doesnt hurt, either. The sophomore setter was in the right spots. She had 22 assists, and wasnt called for a setting violation the entire match. She utilized a strong jump-serve, and showed incredible hustle digging several balls

off the net to keep the point alive. She spread her assists to ve different attackers, and added three kills of her own.a She is a young lady who has been working hard since seventh grade to succeed in this position, Caruso said. She is doing wonderful. We are blessed that she is on our team. Pittston Area (0-9) struggled to nd any type of offensive rhythm in front of a loud, boisterous GAR student section. The Patriots found themselves down 18-4 in the opening set, and 10-1 in the third stanza. Danielle McAndrews group battled in the second, thanks to three kills from senior Kaitlyn Simyan. GAR used a 17-7 run to break open a 5-5 score and pull away to a 25-18 victory. It wasnt necessarily handling the serve, we couldnt get to the second ball, the Pittston Area head coach said. We didnt have the communication. We couldnt hear each other think or talk. Their serves were in, and I was impressed with our serves because we usually struggle there. The difference is they

did a nice job of handling our serves. Stephenson had a matchhigh 11 kills, while Jackie Rocha added nine. Jacqueline Rabender had ve kills to pace the Patriots.

Pittsburgh sends three more to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton

The Pittsburgh Penguins re-assigned forwards Zach Sill and Harry Zolnierczyk and defenseman Brian Dumoulin to Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton on Thursday.

Royals hope success repeats


It was right around a year ago at this time when the Holy Redeemer golf team began the most successful team run in Wyoming Valley Conference history that culminated with grabbing the runnerup at the PIAA Class 2A Team Championships. Today, the Royals begin their quest to not only get back to the state tournament, but to be the rst team from District 2 to claim the gold medal. This morning at Fox Hill Country Club, the Wyoming Valley Conference Team Championships will be held with the Royals taking on Lake-Lehman in the Class 2A portion of the event. In Class 3A, Coughlin, Crestwood and Dallas will battle it out for the right to claim the title. Each winner advances to the District 2 Team Championship on Oct. 4, also at Fox Hill. Were going through the same expectations we had last year, Holy Redeemer golfer Mariano Medico said. Were just going to play our game and take it one step at a time. The Royals nished undefeated in the WVC with a 12-0 record to claim the 2A Division III title and have won 53 of their last 54 WVC

league matches, including four straight unbeaten seasons. Theyre taking on the Black Knights, who claimed the 2A Division IV championship with a mark of 8-2 and are quite a remarkable story. Lehman had a respectable campaign in 2012 nishing with a 6-6 record but was second to Hanover Area in the division. That coming after four straight seasons of two wins or less going with 38 losses over that time. Earlier this week, Lehmans Nick Egan and Adam Motovidlak played at Fox Hill and advanced to the District 2 Individual Tournament with top 10 nishes as the WVC Pre-District Tournament. Egan ended tied for seventh carding an 86, while Motovidlak tied for ninth with 87. Still, the Royals are condent, especially since when they met Lehman during the season, the Royals won by 36 strokes. Redeemer is looking for its second straight WVC 2A title and fourth consecutive conference title overall. Were expecting to make it to states obviously, said Royals senior Chase Makowski, who won the pre-district tournament. Its just team playoffs, but I think the real challenge is going to be at districts. The Class 3A event appears to be more even.

Coughlin and Dallas nished with 8-2 marks in the 3A Division I. The two split the matches during the regular season. The Crusaders won on the second day of the season by 22 strokes, but when they met last week, the Mountaineers turned in a two-shot victory. Both teams also lost to Crestwood to make up the loss column. The Comets, meanwhile, nished with a 9-1 record claiming the top spot in 3A Division II with their lone setback coming to Wyoming Valley West by eight shots last week. The Mountaineers and Comets each advanced three participants to the District 2 Class 3A Individual Tournament with strong showings in the Pre-District event earlier this week. Coughlin, the reigning WVC Class 3A team champion, will have two golfers in districts. Picking an outright winner in 3A was complicated more at pre-districts when Dallas Ryan Georgetti won the event, while Crestwoods Joe Hurn and Coughlins Daulton Lentini tied for second two strokes behind. The Crusaders Ryan Keyes nished seventh in the tourney, while the Mountaineers Brendan Baloh and Justin Brojakowski tied for ninth with the Comets Billy Dombroski.

ecently,MedicalDoctorandalternative medicine expert Dr. Liza Leal, revealed a simple secret that amazed millions who suffer with digestion nightmares. And people havent stopped talking about it since.

Id give anything to make it stop!

Thats what most people will tell you when asked about their digestive problems. Its just horrible says Ralph Burns, a former digestion victim. I was tortured for years by my Acid-Reflux. Sometimes Id almost pass out from the pain. My wife suffers with digestion problems too. If she eats one wrong thing, she spends hours stuck in the bathroom dealing with severe bouts of constipation or diarrhea.

FDA Warns About Popular Antacids

A recent FDA warning explained that excessive use of antacids could lead to an increased risk of hip, wrist, and spine fractures. Especially in people over the age of 50. So when Dr. Liza Leal discussed an alternative to her clinic, you can imagine how thrilled people were to find out they could finally get relief without having to rely on Prevecid, Nexium, Prilosec and other dangerous antacids. But now, according to Dr. Leal, your stomach problems could be over by simply drinking a small amount of a tasty Aloe Vera extract. Its as simple as that!

Dr. Liza Leal, co-founder of Meridian Medical Dental Healthcare for pain management and author of Living Well with Chronic Pain
Francisco DeWeever, a Certified Nutritional Microscopist, My patients report their IBS, Crohns, Colitis, Constipation, Acid Reflux and a host of other digestive problems have all but disappeared. AloeCure may be the most important application ever discovered for digestive health!

For the better part of my life I purposely avoided a lot of foods. Especially ones with even a tiny bit of seasoning. Because if I didn't, I'd experience a burning sensation through my esophaguslike somebody poured hot lead or battery acid down my throat. Add to that those disgusting "mini-throw ups" and I was in "indigestion hell". Doctors put me on all sorts of antacid remedies. But nothing worked. Or if they did, it would only be for a brief period. And then boom! My nightmare would return. Then one day at dinner, a friend of mine said, "Why don't you try an aloe drink?" I said, "Aloe drink? Jeez. That doesn't sound good at all!" The next day he brought me a case of something called AloeCure. I was shocked! AloeCure tasted pretty good too. It has a pleasant grape flavor that I actually enjoy drinking. I decided to experiment. I stopped taking the PPIs altogether and replaced it with a daily diet of AloeCure. Then something remarkable happened - NOTHING! Not even the slightest hint of indigestion. And here's the best part. The next day we had Italian food - my worst enemy. But for the first time in 40 years I didn't need pills or tablets to avoid indigestion. Thank you AloeCure! - Ralph Burns

Finally Theres Hope...

At first, the thought of drinking aloe vera might make some people back away. But in fact, this delicious digestion cocktail is doing amazing things for people who suffer with stomach problems --even if theyve had them for years. Heres how it works

ATLANTA Jason Heyward had a career-high ve hits, including a leadoff home run, and the Braves rode a ve-run rst inning to post a 7-1 win over the Phillies on Thursday night.

SAN DIEGO Alexi Amarista hit an RBI single in the 11th inning and San Diego outlasted Arizona. Tommy Medica led off the 11th with a swinging bunt down the third-base line for an ineld single. Jesus Guzman batted for reliever Nick Vincent (6-3) and hit a ground-rule double that center elder A.J. Pollock misplayed. Josh Collementer (5-5) intentionally walked Nick Hundley to load the bases, and Amarista slapped a single through a drawn-in ineld.

NEW YORK Scooter Gennett capped a four-run second inning with a two-run single and Milwaukee overcame some wild pitching that included the beaning of David Wright for a victory over New York. Wright was hit in the helmet by a pitch from Johnny Hellweg with two outs in the third inning. The All-Star third baseman went down to his hands and knees but he was able to walk off the eld unassisted. The Mets said he was removed as a precaution. Hellweg hit Lucas Duda with the next pitch in the back of the leg and then loaded the bases with a four-pitch walk. But the Mets, who entered with a home record worse than all in the National League except the Cubs (31-50), could not take advantage. Coming off a road trip in which they won ve of six, the Mets were 0 for 14 with runners in scoring position in dropping to 32-46 at Citi Field.

BALTIMORE Miguel Gonzalez pitched seven innings of two-hit ball, Matt Wieters homered and drove in two runs, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2 on Thursday night. Nick Markakis had two hits and an RBI for the Orioles, who won the season series 10-9. Baltimore is 13-5 at Camden Yards against the Blue Jays since the start of the 2012 season. Gonzalez (11-8) allowed one unearned run, struck out ve and walked one. The only hits were a single by Kevin Pillar in the third inning and a double by J.P. Arencibia in the seventh. Gonzalez retired 13 straight batters at one point. It was the rst game this season in which the right-hander didnt give up a run. His effort almost went for naught. Tommy Hunter took over in the eighth and yielded two singles before Brett Lawrie snapped an 0-for-18 skid with an RBI double. Hunter then struck out Moises Sierra and Anthony Gose with runners on second and third.

Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Mark Buehrle throws to the Baltimore Orioles in the first inning of Thursdays game in Baltimore.

Jim Johnson got three outs for his AL-leading 48th save. Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle (12-10) left the game with a bruised right calf after being struck by a line drive off the bat of Steve Pearce. Buehrle allowed three runs and eight hits in 3 1-3 innings, his shortest outing since Sept. 4, 2011, against Detroit. It was Buehrles 429th consecutive start without going on the disabled list. This injury did not appear to be serious, and his next start wont come until 2014. The Blue Jays turned three double plays and Chad Jenkins allowed just one hit

in 3 1-3 innings of relief. But it wasnt enough to prevent Toronto from absorbing its sixth loss in nine games. Toronto got a rst-inning run without benet of a hit. Munenori Kawasaki walked and hustled around the bases to score from rst on a dropped y ball by left elder Jason Pridie. Wieters tied it in the second, hitting a curveball into the seats in left eld for his 22nd home run. In the Baltimore third, Brian Roberts singled and scored on a double by Markakis, who moved up on an ineld hit and came home on a y ball by Wieters.

From page 1B manager Joe Girardi checked with the umpires to make certain Jeter, who is on the disabled list, could take part. I was so thankful they came out, Rivera said after the game. Rivera, who retired four straight batters, wiped his eyes with both arms as he walked off and blew a kiss to the rst row behind the Yankees dugout. He hugged a tearful Girardi in the dugout, grabbed a towel to dab the tears, and came out again and doffed his cap to the crowd. All the while, the Rays remained in their dugout applauding. Throughout the stands, fans blinked back tears. When Rivera came off, Pettitte came out for his own curtain call as the Rays waited. After the last out, Rivera remained on the bench for a moment as New York, New York played. The 43-year-old Rivera then took a nal walk to the mound, where he stood, rubbed his feet on the rubber, kneeled and gathered dirt as a keepsake. Rivera had entered with one out and two on in the eighth to a recorded introduction by Bob Sheppard, the longtime Yankees public address announcer who died three years ago. Fans stood, applauded and chanted his name as he jogged in from the bullpen to Metallicas Enter Sandman and continued for two minutes as he took his warmups. The entire Tampa Bay bench emptied and stood on the dirt warning track in front of the dugout and applauded. Fans remained on their feet, chanting his name as he got two quick outs on six pitches. In his rst appearance since the Yankees retired his No. 42 during a 50-minute ceremony Sunday, Rivera retired Delmon Young on a groundout and Sam Fuld on a comebacker. He lingered on the dugout bench when the eighth inning ended and took in the whole stadium scene as he teammates ran onto the eld. Rivera jogged out last and was given another standing ovation. With the crowd shouting at a postseason level, he retired Jose Lobaton on a comebacker and Yunel Escobar on a popup to second before the famous, nal scene.

MINNEAPOLIS Jim Leyland sat behind his desk, his blue-and-orange Detroit Tigers hat covering a lowered head. Amid the din of players shouting and chanting a few feet away in the visitor clubhouse at Minnesota, the 68-year-old manager was asked how that sound of celebration made him feel. Theyre awful happy, Leyland said, barely looking up and repeating himself after his voice cracked hard on the rst try. Even a gruff, grizzled guy like Leyland can get

While he presided over a 7-month strike in 1994-95 that led to the cancellation of the World Series for the rst time in 90 years, MLB and its players have had labor peace since. Although he repeatedly said he would not take the job full time, he was formally elected commissioner July 9, 1998. He turned running the Brewers over to his daughter Wendy, but the Selig family did not sell the franchise until 2005. Selig agreed to a new contract in 2001. He rst announced his planned retirement in 2003, telling a group from Associated Press Sports Editors he would leave when his current term expired at the end of 2006. For a guy who took it in Sept. 9, 1992, and I told my wife it was twoto-four months 14 years later I think that will be enough. Theres no question, because there are other things I really would like to do. Asked again if this was his nal term, Selig responded; Oh, theres no question. He then agreed to new contracts in 2004, 2008 and 2012. Selig was at the helm while baseball was criticized for being slow to react to the rise of performanceenhancing drugs. Management didnt have a drug agreement with its players from October 1985 until August 2002, and drug testing with penalties didnt start until 2004. Selig has repeatedly defended his record, saying baseball acted as fast as it could in a matter that was subject to bargaining with players. Owners have repeatedly praised his nancial stewardship, which has led to record franchise values as shown by the $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2012. MLB revenues, which totaled $1.7 billion in 1992, are projected to top $8 billion this year, and the average player salary has tripled under his tenure to more than $3 million.

Japan parts makers in price-fixing plea

Nine Japanese auto parts manufacturers and two of their executives will plead guilty and pay $740 million in criminal nes for conspiring to x the prices of more than 30 products sold to many of the worlds largest automakers operating in the U.S., the Justice Department announced Thursday. The action is the latest development in the largest criminal investigation the Justice Departments criminal division has ever carried out. To date, it has resulted in charges against 20 companies and 21 executives, and the companies have agreed to pay $1.6 billion in criminal nes. From steering assemblies to seat belts, the price-xing conspiracies went on for more than a decade and affected more than $5 billion in auto parts sold to U.S. car manufacturers and installed in cars sold in the United States and elsewhere. In all, more than 25 million cars purchased by American consumers have been affected by the illegal conduct.

Signs point to job market picking up

CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER WASHINGTON The job market is sending signs that it may be strengthening. The number of people seeking unemployment benets has sunk to its lowest point in six years because few companies are laying anyone off anymore. A survey of service companies found that they added jobs last month at their fastest pace in six months. And more small businesses say they plan to hire than at any point since the recession began. All of which is prompting some economists to forecast a healthier job gain in September than the economy has produced in recent months. If you put all that together, it suggests that there has been an improvement in job market conditions, said Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics. Ashworth predicts that employers will have added 220,000 jobs in September. That would be the biggest gain in nearly seven months and would mark a sharp reversal from the summer. Job growth has averaged just 155,000 a month since April, down from 205,000 in the rst four months speed borrowing, spending and economic growth. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke noted last week that the job market is still far from what all of us would like to see. Yet it might already be improving. Last week, applications for unemployment benets fell 5,000 to a seasonally adjusted 305,000. The number had reached 294,000 two weeks earlier, but that gure was distorted by computer upgrades in California and Nevada that prevented those states from processing all their claims. Those two states have now caught up and are reporting complete data, the government says. Excluding the distorted gure, last weeks 305,000 applications were the fewest since September 2007, three months before the Great Recession began. Applications generally reect the pace of layoffs. Layoffs had already fallen in July to the lowest on records dating back to 2000, according to a separate report. Applications have dropped an additional 7 percent since then. The dwindling number of people seeking unemployment benets is signaling further acceleration in payroll gains, Jim OSullivan, an economist at High Frequency Economics, said in a note to clients.

Immigration and Customs Enforcements Homeland Security Investigations spokesman Brandon Montgomery said the warrant was executed at the companys Toano, Va., headquarters in coordination with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Department of Justice. No other information about the details of the search was provided and Montgomery said the warrant is sealed. He could not say whether the warrant was related to a particular person or for the company as a whole.

Air Products CEO decides to retire

Averting a potentially disruptive and costly proxy battle, Air Products Chief Executive John McGlade has decided to retire from the Trexlertown company. Air Products has a facility in Hanover Township. The decision, announced Thursday morning, comes less than two months after activist investor Bill Ackman disclosed he had acquired a major stake in Air Products, one of two Fortune 500 companies in the Lehigh Valley. The actions our board is announcing today will ensure an orderly leadership transition and a company that is well positioned to deliver long-term shareholder value, McGlade, who is 59, said in a press release from Air Products.

NEW YORK The boom in sales of new cars in the U.S. has been fueled by consumers replacing vehicles they kept through the recession. But a top auto industry executive says that the pent-up demand likely will be satised by late next year. Jim Lentz, Toyotas North American CEO, told The Associated Press in an interview Thursday that demand for new cars from owners of older models could dry up sometime late in 2014. If the economy isnt creating jobs at a faster pace when that happens, the boom could screech to a halt. The market then has to work off a much better economy, an improving economy, Lentz said. If we dont have that, I think the market may atten out. New car and truck sales hit a three-decade low of 10.4 million in 2009 as the nancial crisis dried up money for car loans and U.S.-based auto companies nearly went out of business. Consumers, many who feared they could lose their jobs, refused to buy new cars and
DOW 15,328.30

instead kept their old ones on the road. Sales, though, gradually rebounded and now are running at an annual rate of around 15.6 million, just below pre-recession levels. Lentz, speaking at the APs New York headquarters, said the average car and truck in the U.S. is now more than 11 years old. At the same time, the supply of coveted used cars that are one-to-ve years old is down to levels not seen since the 1980s. Used car prices have jumped, making their monthly payments as high as those for new cars, Lentz said. Thats brought more buyers into new-car showrooms, he said. But as people replace their cars at a faster rate, the used-car supply increases. Eventually, prices will drop and lure buyers out of the new-car market, he said. So in time, as that one- to ve-year base builds its way back up, I think were going to reach that equilibrium, probably sometime near the end of 2014, he said. Jesse Toprak, senior analyst for the auto pricing site, disagrees, saying pent-up demand isnt close to tapering off.

NEW YORK Wish you could make your student loans disappear? Student loan forgiveness programs can make it happen, but theres a problem. There needs to be more awareness about these programs, says Betsy Mayotte, director of regulatory compliance at American Student Assistance, a nonprot that helps borrowers manage their student debt. So the organization released a student loan forgiveness guide earlier this year on its website. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a government watchdog, released its own guide last month to bring attention to the programs.

This program is for those who work in federal, state or local government jobs, or at a nonprot thats been designated as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. The CFPB estimates that a quarter of the countrys workforce falls into those categories. Individuals must also have high student loan balances relative to their

Under this program borrowers can qualify for reduced monthly payments, and after 25 years the remaining balance is forgiven. It is important to note that the forgiven amount is taxed as income, which means you will likely have to pay a sum to the IRS thats lower than the amount forgiven. The program is for those whose federal student loan debt is high relative their income and family size. Your lender will ultimately decide if you are qualied, but you can see if you would benet from this program by using this online calculator: http://1. .

Borrowers can apply to have their monthly payments reduced, and after 20 years of payments, the balance is forgiven. Any forgiven amounts are taxed as income. This program is for those with a high level of federal student loans compared to their income, and who took out their rst federal student loan after Oct. 1, 2007. Use the Department of Educations online calculator to see if you qualify:

Depending on your job, you may be able to get help with your loans. American Student Assistance put a list together of over 60 programs. Some are based on type of job, others are state programs. You can see them here: http://bit. ly/15xGpNs . Some state programs even help with private loans. Mayotte of ASA recommends an Internet search to see if your state or job qualies for some sort of student loan help.
