Govt shutdown no one wants looms

Health Care Act delay still off table with White House
Associated Press

BORN TO BE WILD: Find any old timer sitting around a bar nursing a Genny, and ask him what he thinks about MLBs Wild Card play-in games. Hell crinkle up his face, raise an eyebrow, and say, You know shonny, back in my day you had to win your division to make the playoffs! You darn kids and your rock n roll! Now, ask any baseball executive about the Wild Card games and hell smile, raise his wallet and say, The added games enhance revenue and .. ohhh I DO love money! The play-in games are set for this Wednesday on TBS. And dont forget to welcome the Pirates back to the playoffs after a 21-year absence.

WASHINGTON The United States braced for a partial government shutdown Tuesday that no one in the seat of democracy seems to want or believes is good for the country, yet the only point of agreement in Washington is that the other political party is to blame. If the midnight Monday dead-

line passes without a deal, a shutdown would affect a wide range of programs, from national parks to the Pentagon. President Barack Obama and the leader of the Democraticcontrolled Senate dismissed a late developing plan approved early Sunday by the GOP-run House that would delay by a year key part of the new health care law and repeal a tax on medical devices, in exchange for avoiding a shutdown. The White House promised a veto and said Republicans were pursuing a narrow ideological agenda and pushing the government toward shutdown. Lawmakers spoke past one

another on the Sunday talk shows, often rehashing the turbulent ghts about the health overhaul that the Supreme Court has upheld, as the nation edged toward the rst government shutdown in 17 years. I agree we should have this debate, but we shouldnt connect it to a government shutdown. Thats the fundamental disagreement between the two sides here, said Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va. Were not going to pass it because it is wrong to do a shutdown of government as the lever to make a change. See SHUTDOWN | 10A

The White House and congressional Democrats say a House-approved delay in President Barack Obamas health care law does nothing but push Washington to the brink of the first government shutdown in 17 years.

ACTING IN SPACE: Remember when Sandra Bullock was the bionic sidekick to Lindsay Wagner in the cheesy TV movie Bionic Showdown? Or when George Clooney played the role of Lenny Colwell on the show Riptide? Of course you dont. No one does. But now that the pair are Oscar-winners, they get some serious roles. Like their much-buzzed-about star turns in the space drama Gravity. The film, about two astronauts trying to survive after an accident leaves them adrift in space, is getting seriously good reviews. Yeah, but its no Battleship!Gravity opens Friday. LEAF IT TO NATURE: The romantics among us love to travel the Pennsylvania countryside this time of year and watch as nature puts on a dazzling display of color. The pessimists wonder why so many people like to go out and watch leaves starve and die. We suggest leaving the pessimists at home and enjoy the fall foliage. This week begins the peak season to check out the yellows, oranges, reds, burgundies, burlywoods, vermilions and other colors you never knew existed. SQUIDS, CUTTLEFISH AND KRAKENS, OH MY! Did you know the octopus is one of the most intelligent creatures under the sea? Or that the nautilus can adjust the flow of water into and out of its shell in a form of jet propulsion? Well, if you were aware there is an International Cephalopod Awareness Day, then youd be aware of those things. Saturday is ICAD a day to celebrate those marvelous mollusks, and ask yourself these questions: How exactly do scientists know octopuses are so smart? Do they give them tests? Which is the dumbest sea creature? Is his name Patrick Star? ITS A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD: Society frowns upon crazy. The man on the corner in tattered, dirty robes screaming The end is nigh! is not often viewed with respect. Although when the end is indeed nigh, dont complain when he says I told you so. But this Sunday, crazy will be welcomed with open flailing arms. Its Mad Hatter Day, when the roles of sanity and madness are reversed and acting crazy is encouraged. Now, that doesnt mean you should run around Public Square in your underwear wearing a chicken on your head. We want fun crazy, not crazy crazy. Understand?

Celebrating food and service

Gourmet event aids St.Vincent de Paul

PLAINS TWP. The food was varied and plentiful. The cause? Never-ending. Hundreds of area residents brought their appetites to the Woodlands Inn on Sunday afternoon to partake of gourmet offer-

ings in support of St. Vincent de Paul Kitchen on East Jackson Street in Wilkes-Barre, and its work to feed those who can barely afford to provide even basic meals for themselves. Its up about 10 percent over a year ago, Monsignor Joseph Kelly said of the number of guests served by the kitchen.

More than 400 meals are being served at lunchtime, seven days a week, with 200 or more dinners served on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Kelly, executive director of Catholic Social Services, was pleased to see the turnout for A Celebration of Food, as the event marking the kitchens 30th anniversary had been dubbed.

Emails Luzerne County Council members exchange with each other and the county manager are set to be posted on the county website starting this week an unusual public offering in Pennsylvania. County Chief Solicitor C. David Pedri said he has heard of online posting of local government ofcials emails in California and Florida but not Pennsylvania. Doug Hill, head of the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania, said counties are increasingly embracing opportunities to provide public information through their websites, but he doesnt know of any counties posting emails. Council members initiated the online posting earlier this year, saying it will eliminate processing of Right-to-Know requests for their emails and show they have nothing to hide. County Manager Robert Lawton also requested to be part of the posting, which means the emails he exchanges with council members will be publicly released. I think its a great move forward, said county Council Chairman Tim McGinley. The emails will be subject to online release starting Oct. 1. Pedri said they See EMAILS | 10A

WASHINGTON The No. 2 officer at the military command in charge of all U.S. nuclear war-fighting forces is suspected in a case involving counterfeit gambling chips at a western Iowa casino and has been suspended from his duties, officials said. Navy Vice Adm. Tim Giardina has not been arrested or charged, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation special agent David Dales said Saturday. The state investigation is ongoing. Giardina, deputy commander at U.S. Strategic Command, was suspended on Sept. 3 and is under investigation by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, a Strategic Command spokeswoman said. The highly unusual action against a highranking officer at Strategic Command was made more than three weeks ago but not publicly announced at that time. The command is located at Offutt Air Force Base near Omaha, Neb. Air Force Gen. Robert Kehler, who heads Strategic Command, suspended Giardina, according to the commands top spokeswoman, Navy Capt. Pamela Kunze. Giardina is still assigned to the command

but is prohibited from performing duties related to nuclear weapons and other issues requiring a security clearance, she said. Kehler has recommended to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel that Giardina be reassigned, Kunze said. Giardina has been the deputy commander of Strategic Command since December 2011. He is a career submarine officer and prior to starting his assignment there was the deputy commander and chief of staff at U.S. Pacific Fleet. DCI agents stationed at the Horseshoe Casino

in Council Bluffs, Iowa, discovered the counterfeit chips, Dales said. He would not say when the discovery was made or how much in counterfeit chips was found, only that it was a significant monetary amount. Council Bluffs is located across the Missouri River from Omaha. We were able to detect this one pretty quickly and jump on it, Dales said. He declined to give specifics on how authorities determined that casino chips had been counterfeited or how Giardina might have been involved.

Strategic Command oversees the militarys nuclear fighter units, including the Navys nuclear-armed sub marines and the Air Forces nuclear bombers and nucle ar land-based missiles. Kunze said Strategic Command did not announce the suspension because Giardina remains under investigation and action on Kehlers recommendation that Giardina be reassigned is pending. The suspension was first reported by the Omaha World-Herald. Kunze said a law enforcement investigation of Giardina began June 16. Kehler became aware of this on July 16, and the following day he asked the Naval Criminal Investigative Service to begin a probe. The suspension is yet another blow to the militarys nuclear establishment. Last spring the nuclear missile unit at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., pulled 17 launch control officers off duty after a problematic inspection and later relieved of duty the officer in charge of training and proficiency. In August a nuclear missile unit at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont., failed a nuclear safety and security inspection; nine days later an officer in charge of the units security forces was relieved of duty.

Meatballs sequel has sunny box-office start

LOS ANGELES Its been weeks since a familyfriendly film hit theaters, and judging by the openingweekend result for Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, moviegoers with kids were eager to return to the multiplex. The 3-D animated sequel easily beat out three new nationwide releases this past weekend, collecting $35 million, according to an estimate from distributor Sony Pictures. Though thats a solid opening, its still far below the $45 million that prerelease audience surveys had indicated for the film. Sony, which predicted a softer debut of around $33 million heading into the weekend, said it was pleased with the launch. None of the weekends other new films did especially impressive business. Ron Howards race car drama, Rush, didnt get off to that speedy a start, taking in $10.3 million in its nationwide expansion. The romantic comedy Baggage Claim grossed $9.3 million, barely beating the $9 million tally for Joseph Gordon-Levitts feature directorial debut, Don Jon; both films, however, were made for less than $10 million. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 had a slightly bigger opening than its predecessor, which opened with $30.3 million in 2009. The picture went on to collect a healthy $243 million worldwide. Like the original Cloudy, the sequel was well liked by audiences: Both installments received an average grade

of A-minus, according to market research firm CinemaScore. Roughly 80 percent of those who saw the film, which features the voices of stars such as Bill Hader and Anna Faris, were families. Cloudy 2 posted the strongest opening for an animated film since July, as Turbo, The Smurfs 2 and Planes all cannibalized one another at the box office during summers final weeks. Still, the picture is not likely to become one of the years biggest animated hits: Both Despicable Me 2 and Monsters University launched with more than $80 million apiece. Fortunately, Sony Pictures Animation didnt spend much to produce Cloudy 2, about $78 million, so the movie should do respectably for the studio. Last weekend, Universal Pictures released Rush in five theaters in an effort to spread positive word of mouth about the wellreviewed film before its wide release. The movie didnt do spectacular business, and that trend continued this past weekend. Co-financed by Cross Creek Pictures and Exclusive Media for $38 million, Rush tells the story of famed 1970s Formula One racers and fierce rivals James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brhl). The picture debuted to a warm reaction at the Toronto International Film Festival this month, and moviegoers this past weekend liked it too, giving the film an A-minus CinemaScore. Despite its subject matter, the film appealed to

I think the most important result from the weekend is that this is the debut of a new filmmaker. He was already a successful actor, and now hes added director to his resume.

Kyle Davies, Relativity Media president of theatrical distribution Relativity Media acquired the $6 million production for $4 million at the Sundance Film Festival in January, promising to pay at least $25 million to market it. Given those numbers, Relativity executives say they are optimistic the film will be a success, even with that C-plus looming. I think the most important result from the weekend is that this is the debut of a new filmmaker, said Kyle Davies, Relativitys president of theatrical distribution. He was already a successful actor, and now hes added director to his resume. Its the start of an interesting and exciting career for him. Meanwhile, the Mexican film Instructions Not Included this past weekend became the highestgrossing Spanish-language film ever released in the United States, not adjusting for inflation. With $38.6 million, the movie has now made more than Guillermo del Toros Pans Labyrinth, which collected $37.6 million in 2006. Since its release a month ago, Instructions Not Included has become a surprise hit for Pantelion Films. Before the movie starring Eugenio Derbez hit cinemas, the joint venture between Lionsgate and Mexicos Televisa had never seen one of its movies gross more than $6 million.

men and women in nearly equal measure, though it did attract an older crowd 53 percent were older than 40. Though the opening for Baggage Claim wasnt fantastic, the movie didnt cost much to make about $8.5 million. It features a predominantly African-American cast and was aimed at black moviegoers. Indeed, the main demographic that turned out to see the film over the weekend, per distributor Fox Searchlight. The movie fared particularly well in urban markets, with top results coming from Baltimore, Atlanta and Washington, D.C. The film follows a flight attendant (Paula Patton) who has grown increasingly desperate to tie the knot. Though reviews for writer-director David E. Talberts second feature were dismal, moviegoers seemed to enjoy it. The largely female crowd who saw the picture gave it an average grade of A-minus. Moviegoers did not like Don Jon nearly as much. The film earned only a C-plus somewhat surprising, given that the picture has an 81 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Written and directed by Gordon-Levitt, the movie stars the actor as a Jersey Shore-type playboy trying to hide his pornography addiction from his new girlfriend (Scarlett Johansson).

The December holiday season came up twice during last weeks Luzerne County Council meeting. County Councilman Harry Haas said several citizens have asked if the county will restore the seasonal display on the courthouse lawn this year. The display was canceled last year due Jennifer to an exterior Learncourthouse construction project Andes and September County 2011 ood damNotebook age to the nativity and some other display items that had been stored in the courthouse sub-basement. County Manager Robert Lawton said after the meeting the display will be up this season. Councilman Edward Brominski brought up a request for council donations toward the purchase of the courthouse Christmas tree, saying the money may not be needed because council candidate Mike Giamber has offered to donate a tree. Lawton said he is donating $200 toward the tree and treelighting ceremony. The county received proposals from 10 professional recruiters interested in nding applicants for several vacant management positions, Lawton said. The chosen recruiter must round up a list of qualied candidates for the budget and nance, human services and operational services division head positions, and staffers are reviewing the proposals, he said. We hope to move with a quick engagement to ll these important positions, Lawton said. The county has started posting Right-to-Know requests and information supplied in response to them under the Right-to-Know section of the county website, Chief Solicitor C.

Councilwoman Linda McClosky Houck suggested the county release a summary sheet or hold a seminar for authority and board members so they understand state Sunshine Act requirements. The council committee overseeing outside boards and authorities will meet at 6 in the council meeting room at the courthouse tonight. Discussion items will include county Councilman Stephen J. Urbans proposal to ban school, county and municipal elected ofcials from serving on county boards and authorities unless such appointments are required by law. Urban said his proposal will eliminate any appearance of politics in appointments and prevent elected ofcials from spreading themselves too thin when they have responsibilities to their constituents. But Councilman Rick Morelli said the county has had a tough time nding volunteers to serve on boards. He said elected ofcials may be retired with more free time.

Members of the Knights of Columbus carry a pilgrim Virgin of Fatima statue in the Rosary Rally Procession on South Street on their way around Public Square to St. Marys Church on Washington Street, Wilkes-Barre.

Fred Adams | For The Times Leader

Rosary Rally is an act of faith

Plymouth, Chapter 984, said the procession is a way for Catholics to show their faith and offer prayers for the sins of the world. St. Marys message was to make repentance of sins of the world through prayer and self sacrice, he said. As the Knights of Columbus, in full dress uniform, lead the procession, rosaries of all colors and styles dangled from the hands of parishioners, who were reciting the appropriate prayer each bead represented. The pilgrim Virgin of Fatima statue was carried through the streets and rested in front of the congregation in St. Marys Church. Calore said the reaction of downtown residents and patrons as the procession walked past was one of surprise. We passed store fronts and pubs, he said. Many would come outside and watched. I think it reminded them of the Catholic processions of their childhood. The procession began at 2 p.m. in the parking area of Holy Redeemer High School, WilkesBarre, over East South Street, to South Main Street, over East Market Street and down South Washington Street to St. Marys Church. Marian devotions were at 3 p.m. followed by a Mass at 3:20 p.m. with Monsignor Thomas Banick presiding. Inside St. Marys, people ltered in, greeting one another. Calore estimated there were about 300 or more people. This was a better turnout than last year, he said. Banick told of the three mes-

WILKES-BARRE Weaving through the streets of downtown Wilkes-Barre, hundreds of area Catholics participated in a Rosary Rally procession with a pilgrim Virgin of Fatima statue on Sunday afternoon. This was the 37th annual Rosary Rally held by the combined chapters of the Wyoming Valley Knights of Columbus. Christopher Calore, Rosary Rally chairman and a member of the Knights of Columbus,

sages of Fatima that were given to three shepherd children in Portugal from May through October in 1917. The pilgrim Virgin of Fatima statue is said to be designed based on the descriptions from the children. Calore said one of the three miracles predicted by St. Mary, which was recorded, was after a long stretch of rainy weather; the sun came out and spun violently around, drying the clothes of the people where they stood. It was noted the sun seemed to get closer, Calore said.

Fla. plaque commemorates Ice Kings warm heart


Albert Lewiss gifts to the Southern city where he spent his winters a century ago have been memorialized in stone, and now in print. The Luzerne County businessman, known for his dominance of the local lumber and ice - cutting industries in the late 1800s, was remem- Lewis bered last week with the dedication of a local historical marker next to a horse trough he donated to the city of St. Augustine, Fla., 109 years ago.

The marker came about largely through the work of Sheila Greenleaf, a St. Augustine woman with a passion for her citys history. It was a spectacular weekend honoring Albert Lewis, who bestowed so much on our community in 1904, said Greenleaf. Lewis granddaughter, Ann Lewis, of Wilkes-Barre, attended the marker dedication ceremony in St. Augustine. The event was attended by about 40 people, Greenleaf said, with the marker unveiled by Ann Lewis and L. John Arbizzani, a St. Augustine businessman who owns the land where the horse trough now stands. Albert Lewis died in 1923 and is buried in Bear Creek Village, the community that grew up around his home and base of

In addition to beautifying St. Augustine-area thoroughfares by planting greenery Lewis was fascinated by palm trees, Greenleaf learned he contributed signicant sums toward upgrading the roads themselves, just as he did around Bear Creek. Lewis was a member of the East Florida Good Roads League, which advocated for

improved roadways in the days before automobile ownership was widespread and paved roads were anything but universal. He also loved horses, and the trough stands as a monument to that and his practical realization that animals trodding up and down South Dixie Highway

needed a place to drink while hauling people and goods to and from St. Augustine. Greenleaf said that following the dedication, Ann Lewis was treated to a tour of her grandfathers former home, Casa Amarylla, now known as Wiley Hall and part of Flagler College.

Iran: More needed for full US ties

TEHRAN, Iran Iran sought Sunday to calm hardliners worried over groundbreaking exchanges with Washington, saying a single phone conversation between the American and Iranian presidents is not a sign that relations will be quickly restored. The comments by Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi appeared tailored to address Iranian factions, including the powerful Revolutionary Guard, that have grown uneasy over fast-paced outreach last week between the White House and President Hassan Rouhani, which was capped by a 15-minute phone call with President Barack Obama. Denitely, a history of high tensions between Tehran and Washington will not go back to normal relations due to a phone call, meeting or negotiation, Araghchi was quoted by the semi-ofcial Fars news agency as saying. Rouhani seeks to restart stalled talks over its nuclear program in the hopes of easing U.S.-led sanctions. Iran, however, has not claried what concessions it is willing to make with its nuclear program in exchange. Araghchi also reiterated statements by Irans Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who said he no longer opposes direct talks with Washington but is not optimistic about the potential outcome. Khamenei appears to have given Rouhani authority to handle the nuclear talks with world powers, scheduled to resume in Geneva in two weeks, and seek possible broader contacts with the Obama administration. We never trust America 100 percent, said Araghchi. And in the future, we will remain on the same path. We will never trust them 100 percent. The divisions over Rouhanis overtures were on display Saturday when he returned from New York. Supporters welcomed him with cheers, but a smaller pocket of protesters shouted insults. The U.S. and Iran broke ties after the 1979 Islamic Revolution when mobs stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. A total of 52 hostages were held for 444 days. A hard-line lawmaker, Hamid Rasaei, criticized the phone call as breaking the resistance brand of Iran, a reference to the self-promoted idea that Iran is the anchor for opposition to Israel and Western inuence in the region. Later on Sunday, Rouhani seemed to defend the cautious openings with Washington in comments on his presidential website, saying his administration is faithful to change in foreign ties, which is a

NASAs newest delivery service made its rst-ever shipment to the International Space Station on Sunday, another triumph for the booming commercial space arena that has its sights set on launching astronauts. Orbital Sciences Corp.s unmanned cargo ship, the Cygnus, pulled up at the orbiting lab with a half-ton of meals and special treats for the station astronauts who assisted in the high-ying feat. With the smooth linkup, Orbital Sciences of Virginia became only the second company to accomplish such a far-ung shipment. The California-based SpaceX company took the lead last year. Now that the space station has two U.S. private companies capable of delivering goods, he noted, its certainly relief and something were ready to celebrate, said the NASA manager overseeing this commercial effort, Alan Lindenmoyer.

national demand. The core of the opposition to Rouhani appears built around supporters of former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who once sent a letter to then-Presi-

dent George W. Bush in an attempt to open dialogue. Ahmadinejad apparently was rebuffed by Bush, and the former president later fell from favor with Khamenei after trying to challenge his authority.

Syria plans emerge

Associated Press



A car bomb in Peshawar, the third in a particularly violent week for the northwestern Pakistani city, killed at least 43 people and wounded more than 100 on Sunday in a crowded market about 350 yards from where a memorial service was being held for the victims of a church bombing last week. Bomb squad head Shafqat Malik said the bomb was planted in a car parked in front of a small hotel in the Qissa Khwani bazaar, the citys oldest and one of its biggest. The device used about 440 pounds of explosives and was detonated by remote control, he added, leaving a crater ve-feet deep. Pedestrians were just starting their Sunday shopping shortly before noon when the blast occurred near a mosque and a police station, witnesses said.

Nigerian militants kill sleeping students

Associated Press

Security forces still recovering bodies, preventing an exact count of the dead
north, said a military intelligence ofcial, who insisted on anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the press. The extremists rode into the college in two double-cabin pickup all-terrain vehicles and on motorcycles, some dressed in Nigerian military camouage uniforms, a surviving student, Ibrahim Mohammed, said. He said they appeared to know the layout of the college, attacking the four male hostels but avoiding the one hostel reserved for women. We ran into the bush. Nobody is left in the school now, Mohammed said. Almost all those killed were Muslims, as is the colleges student body, said Adamu Usman, a survivor from Gujba who was helping the wounded at the hospital. Wailing relatives gathered outside the hospital morgue, where rescue workers laid out bloody bodies in an orderly row on the lawn for family members to identify their loved ones. One body had its sts clenched to the chest in a protective gesture. Another had hands clasped under the chin, as if in prayer. A third had arms raised in surrender. Provost Idi Mato conrmed that the schools 1,000 other enrolled students have ed the college. He said there were no security forces stationed at the college despite government assurances that they would be deployed. The state commissioner for education, Mohammmed Lamin, called a news conference two weeks ago urging all schools to reopen and promising protection from soldiers and police. Most schools in the area closed after militants on July 6 killed 29 pupils and a teacher, burning some alive in their hostels, at Mamudo, outside Damaturu. Northeastern Nigeria is under a military state of emergency to battle an Islamic uprising by Boko Haram militants, who have killed more than 1,700 people since 2010 in their quest to install an Islamic state, though half the countrys 160 million citizens are Christian. Boko Haram means Western education is forbidden in the local Hausa language.



Suicide bombings tore through a Shiite mosque south of Baghdad and the relatively safe Kurdish area in the north Sunday as a wave of attacks killed at least 46 people across Iraq, ofcials said. A surge in sectarian violence in recent months has heightened fears that Iraq is becoming a new battleeld, nearly two years after U.S. forces withdrew from the country. A period of calm after the pullout had raised hopes for a measure of normalcy in Iraq, but tensions have spiked amid Sunni anger over perceived mistreatment from the Shiite-led government. More than 4,500 people have been killed since April. The deadliest assault occurred when an attacker blew himself up inside a Shiite mosque during a funeral in a former insurgent stronghold south of Baghdad, prompting city administrators to criticize Iraqi security forces for failing to protect the people.

Wave of attacks kills dozens

POTISKUM, Nigeria Suspected Islamic extremists attacked an agricultural college in the dead of night, gunning down dozens of students as they slept in dormitories and torching classrooms, the schools provost said, reporting the latest violence in northeastern Nigerias ongoing Islamic uprising. As many as 50 students may have been killed in the assault that began at about 1 a.m. Sunday in rural Gujba, said Provost Molima Idi Mato of Yobe State College of Agriculture. They attacked our students while they were sleeping in their hostels. They opened re at them, he said. He said he could not give an exact death toll because security forces still are recovering bodies of students, most of whom were between ages 18 and 22. The Nigerian military collected 42 bodies and transported 18 wounded students to Damaturu Specialist Hospital, 25 miles

Couple kill mom; dad kills daughter

Authorities said an estranged daughter killed her mother with a sawed-off shotgun before her father killed her in self-defense, not realizing she was the daughter he hadnt seen in years. Ofcials said Josephine and Jeffrey Ruckinger burst into the home Friday night and killed her mother and brother before the family patriarch opened re himself, killing the assailants. Authorities on Sunday said Josephine Ruckinger killed her mother, Roberta Frew, while her husband apparently killed John Frew Jr. A relative said Josephine Ruckinger had a long-standing feud with her family.


ATLANTA After Larry Mainor left the armed forces, he spent years getting high on crack and sleeping in cars, under bridges, behind restaurants and even in the woods. Now, he nally has a roof over his head and his own bed to sleep in. Mainor is one of hundreds of homeless veterans and other chronically homeless people being helped by an Atlanta initiative aimed at getting people off the streets and in permanent housing. The city is well on its way to meeting its goal of nding homes for 800 people this year, with already more than 700 in homes.

More than 6,000 homeless people live in metro Atlanta, according to a point-in-time count in January. Atlantas Unsheltered No More initiative is in keeping with a national movement toward a housing rst approach, which advocates say is focused rst and foremost on getting the homeless off the streets and then providing them with services and other help they may need. Last year, the city sought to house 100 people in 100 days. That goal was beaten, with 131 people nding homes. Atlanta housed more homeless veterans than any other city participating in the nationwide challenge while also speeding up placement process by one-third.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands Inspectors who will oversee Syrias destruction of its chemical weapons said Sunday their rst priority is to help the country scrap its ability to manufacture such arms by a Nov. 1 deadline using every means possible. The chemical weapons inspectors said that may include smashing mixing equipment with sledgehammers, blowing up delivery missiles, driving tanks over empty shells or lling them with concrete, and running machines without lubricant so they seize up and become inoperable. On Friday, the U.N. Security Council ordered the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to help Syria destroy its chemical weapons by mid-2014. On Sunday, inspectors met with media in The Hague to explain their current plan of action, which is to include an initial group of 20 leaving for Syria on Monday. The organization allowed two inspectors to speak on condition of anonymity out of concern for their safety amid Syrias civil war; both are veteran members of the OPCW. Spokesman Michael Luhan said the men are going to be deeply involved in Syria. This isnt just extraordinary for the OPCW. This hasnt been done before: an international mission to go into a country which is involved in a state of conict and amid that conict oversee the destruction of an entire category of weapons of mass destruction which it possesses, Luhan said. This is denitely a historical rst. Syria acknowledged for the rst time it has chemical weapons after an Aug. 21 poison gas attack killed hundreds of civilians in a Damascus suburb and President Barack Obama threatened a military strike in retaliation. A U.N. investigation found that nerve gas was used in the attack but stopped short of blaming it on Syrian President Bashar Assads regime. After a urry of diplomatic negotiations involving the U.S., Syria, and Syrian ally Russia, Syria made an initial voluntary disclosure of its program to the Haguebased OPCW. The U.S. and Russia agree that Syria has roughly 1,000 metric tons of chemical weapons agents and precursors, including blister agents such as sulfur and mustard gas, and nerve agents like sarin. Timothee Germain, a researcher at the Center for International Security and Arms Control in Paris, who is not involved with the OPCW project, said that in the early phases of Syrias civil war, chemical weapons were consolidated into a small number of sites to keep them from falling into the hands of rebels. But when the prospect of a U.S. military strike emerged, the weapons may have been redistributed over a larger number of sites to preserve them. THE TIMES LEADER

Fall festival is childs play Kings celebrates homecoming

Denison House event features doll making and other crafts
Times Leader Correspondent


FORTY FORT It is believed that the behavior of a beautiful little Native American girl is the reason why corn husk dolls dont have faces, Irene Moran, a volunteer at the Colonial Harvest Festival at the historic Nathan Denison House said Sunday. She was very beautiful, Moran said. So much so, that it went to her head. She became snotty and nasty, so to teach her a lesson, they started making dolls with no faces. Dressed in period costumes, Moran and other volunteer showed a group of children how to make the dolls and other toys from the 18th century. Emily James, 8, of Dallas, Claire Barlow, 9, of Luzerne, Skylar Belgio, 9, of Forty Fort, and Kolia Croop, 11, of Tunkhannock, eagerly demonstrated the toys they made. Built in 1790, the Nathan Denison House is considered to be the oldest frame house in the Wyoming Valley.

Local artisans displayed and demonstrated crafts such as wheat weaving, pottery, wood carving and Turkish marbled paper making on the grassy lawn. Inside the restored residence, volunteers offered guided tours during which visitors watched demonstrations such as quilting and yarn spinning. An assortment of aromatic herbs perfumed the air as Sherry Emershaw described how Betsy Denison, Nathans wife, cared for her home and family with her herb and vegetable garden. With no pharmacies and a shortage of doctors, colonial mothers turned to herbs for their medicinal use. The medicine cabinet was your herb garden, Emershaw said. Mrs. Denison not only used herbs for cooking and treating ailments, but also for strewing, which means to strew dried herbs such as lavender and lemon balm across the oor to mask household odors. The herbs served as a natural air freshener to mask aromas from the cooking of slaughtered animals in the replace, candle making and body odor (bathing wasnt a daily routine). When the herbs sweet aroma passed, Mrs. Denison would sweep them out the door, Emershaw pointed out. This was a very odorous house, Emershaw said.

DALLAS TWP. More than 80 cars and trucks from around the state lled Dallas High Schools parking lot for the Economic Competition Clubs second annual car and truck show Sunday afternoon. Led by Dennis Garvey, a retired stockbroker, and Tom Gilroy, a social science teacher at the high school, the club held the fundraiser to help pay for trips to regional and state competitions. The show was dedicated to the memory of the late Chester Kunigonas, who was once a client of Garveys. A generous donation made by Kunigonas widow, Mary Ann, as well as a number of other donations from the community, helped offset the cost of

trophies, event t-shirts and food, said Gilroy. Although the high school doesnt offer an Economics class, the clubs members compete with students around the state who take AP Economics courses, Garvey pointed out. We lecture in micro, macro and international economics, said Garvey. Last year two of our regional winners went to the state (competition) and placed fourth and fth in the state of Pennsylvania. If youre a federal reserve bank with $8 million in deposits, what is your legal reserve requirement? asked Garvey, giving a sample of one of the fteen questions he asks competitors. Zero, he said, pointing out that as banks grow in deposits, so do the legal reserve requirements. Club President Lily Amadio, a senior, said shes

not sure what shell major in when she attends college next year, but shes sure itll be something in the business eld. She and the clubs roughly 23 members meet

two evenings a month to prepare for competitions. Its a good club, Garvey added. Because when out go out into the world, this gives you some business common sense.

Advocates spread word on insurance enrollment

Associated Press

HARRISBURG With enrollment scheduled to begin Tuesday in Pennsylvanias federally run health insurance exchange, advocates are ramping up efforts to spread the word and teach consumers how to shop in the online marketplaces that are a key element of President Barack Obamas signature health care law. Among those engaging in the effort are advocacy organizations that support the law, health care professionals and notfor-prot agencies that routinely help the poor get public assistance. Education campaigns are focused on going door-to-door canvassing in high poverty areas, setting up ofces in community health centers and holding question-andanswer sessions at public libraries and elsewhere. Their work will be that much more prominent since Gov. Tom Corbetts administration has remained on the sidelines during the process even as other governors take charge of the enrollment effort.

The Corbett administration spent virtually nothing to market it and received nothing from the federal government to market it, either, in contrast to other states that have embraced it. Many still people dont know about it, actual insurance coverage wont take effect until Jan. 1 and the rst enrollment period will last until March 31. So many who plan to assist people in getting coverage such as 50 organizations that run 250 federally qualied community health centers in 48 counties dont necessarily expect the gates to come crashing down immediately. Oct. 1 is an important day for when the door opens, but people dont need to rush through it, said Jim Willshier, director of policy for the Pennsylvania Association of Community Health Centers, which is helping distribute federal grants to the health centers to train people to help with enrollment. Organizations in Pennsylvania received nearly $7 million to hire and train application counselors and navigators much of it went to the health

centers to help people understand how to shop for insurance in the exchange and what their various options for coverage are. The exchange is designed to make it simple for the uninsured to shop for private health insurance by setting up a direct comparison among plans and defraying the cost with a tax credit for people whose income qualies. The targets are mostly the working poor, young people who are disengaged or those who gave up their insurance because of the cost. Whether it will work remains to be seen. The federal website, healthcare. gov, where many people will sign up and shop for coverage, could have glitches early on. The people who are hired and trained to be application counselors and navigators also may struggle to understand the process or guide people. And rates may rise if only the sickest people seek coverage. Hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanias estimated 1.3 million uninsured residents the group Families USA estimates

it to be nearly 900,000 will be eligible to get a tax credit that helps lower the cost of an individual or family health insurance plan through the exchange. The Pennsylvania Medical Society is writing a step-by-step guide that doctors can provide to patients and the public, while the Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania distributed an enrollment and outreach guidebook to its member hospitals to use with their patients and in their communities.

Small number of schools drop out of lunch program

Associated Press


WASHINGTON The Agriculture Department says 524 schools out of about 100,000 have dropped out of the federally subsidized national school lunch program since the government introduced new standards for healthier foods last year. The new standards have been met with grumbling from school nutrition ofcials who say they are difcult and expensive to follow, conservatives who say the government

shouldnt be dictating what kids eat and unsurprisingly from some children who say the less-greasy food doesnt taste as good. But USDA says the vast majority of schools are serving healthier food, with some success. Data the department is planning to release Monday shows that 80 percent of schools say they have already met the requirements, which went into place at the beginning of the 2012 school year. About a half percent have dropped out of the

program. In an effort to stem high childhood obesity levels, the new guidelines set limits on calories and salt, and phase in more whole grains in federally subsidized meals served in schools main lunch line. Schools must offer at least one vegetable or fruit per meal and comply with a variety of other specic nutrition requirements. The rules aim to introduce more nutrients to growing kids and also make old favorites healthier pizza with low-fat cheese and whole-wheat crust, for

example, or baked instead of fried potatoes. If schools do not follow the rules, or if they drop out, they are not eligible for the federal dollars that reimburse them for free and low-cost meals served to low-income students. That means wealthier schools with fewer needy students are more likely to be able to operate outside of the program. According to the USDA data, gathered from the states that administer the programs, 90 of the 524 schools that dropped out of the program said specically that they did so because of the new mealplan requirements. Most of the rest did not give a reason. Some school nutrition ofcials have said buying the healthier foods put a strain on their budgets. A study by the Pew Charitable Trusts Kids Pick your own Tomatoes
HAYRIDES starting Sept 28

Safe and Healthful Foods Project, also expected to be released Monday, said that 91 percent of school food ofcials the group surveyed said they face challenges in putting the standards in place, including problems with food costs and availability, training employees to follow the new guidelines, and a lack of the proper equipment to cook healthier meals. But that study says 94 percent of the more than 3,300 ofcials surveyed said they expect to be able to meet all of the requirements by the end of this school year. It shows that this is certainly doable, said Jessica Donze Black, director of the Pew project, which has lobbied for the healthier foods. Leah Schmidt, president of the School Nutrition Association and director of nutrition programs at a

Kansas City, Mo. school district, said any schools that would consider forgoing the federal funds would have to have very few students eating the free and reduced-cost meals. She agreed that many schools have met challenges in trying to meet the new standards, but she said that is to be expected. Any time you have something new youre going to have some growing pains, she said. As some schools struggled to follow the new guidelines at the beginning of the last school year, USDA relaxed some of the original requirements. In December, the department did away with daily and weekly limits on meats and grains that school nutrition ofcials said were too hard to follow. Congress has also had its say on the new guidelines. In 2011, after USDA rst

proposed them, Congress prohibited USDA from limiting potatoes and French fries and allowed school lunchrooms to continue counting tomato paste on pizza as a vegetable. The school lunch rules apply to federally subsidized lunches served at reduced or no cost to low-income children. Those meals have always been subject to nutritional guidelines because they are partially paid for by the federal government, but the new rules put broader restrictions on what could be served as childhood obesity rates have skyrocketed. Schoolchildren can still buy additional foods in other parts of the lunchroom and the school. Separate USDA rules to make those foods healthier could go into effect as soon as next year.

With these uncertain and unique conditions, one overarching principle governed the teams work: Dont make it worse, they wrote, saying BP deserved recognition, not condemnation for its spill response efforts. The federal judge presiding over the case without a jury has set aside exactly 120 hours over 16 days for the trials second phase, which he divided into two segments. The rst part, lasting four days, focuses on BPs efforts to seal the well. The second segment, lasting 12 days, is designed to help U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier determine exactly how much oil spilled into the Gulf. Under the Clean Water Act, a polluter can be forced to pay a maximum of either $1,100 or $4,300 per barrel of spilled oil. The higher maximum applies if the company is found grossly negligent, as the government argues BP should be. But the penalties can be assessed at amounts lower than those caps. Congress passed a law dictating that 80 percent of the Clean Water Act penalties paid by BP must be divided among the Gulf states. THE TIMES LEADER

Al-Shabab is operating closely with al-Qaida and in conjunction with the equally vile Boko Haram terrorists in oil-rich Nigeria and al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb. Given the large Somali diaspora around the world, attacks could also be staged elsewhere. Recently, Senior US ofcials claimed the group was on the run after staging a tactical retreat from Mogadishu, the Somali capital, and losing control of the port of Kismayo from which they launched their piracy. The horror perpetrated in Nairobi shows the optimism was misplaced. Such atrocities cannot be tolerated and the international community cannot turn a blind eye. It is to the credit of the African Union that it is leading the way in seeking to deal with al-Shabab, but far more than Africas interests are at stake in the battle. As the death toll in the Nairobi massacre again shows, Islamic terrorism threatens us all, and the international community must do all it can to confront it. Somalias chaos and the terrorism it has spawned as a failed state was allowed to fester for far too long. The Australian

The slaughter of innocents perpetrated by Islamic militants at the Westgate Shopping Mall in Kenya, a country that is a longstanding and important Western ally, should leave the international community in no doubt about the dire consequences when failed states are allowed to become breeding grounds for terrorism. Somalia, the wreck of a country on the Horn of Africa from which the evil, al-Qaida-afliated al-Shabab thugs responsible for the massacre emanate, has lacked stability since the regime of General Siad Barre, a Soviet toady, lost power in 1991. In the ensuing anarchy - with the international community unable and unwilling to do much - the worst forms of malevolent Islamic extremism have spawned and thrived, leading to the attack by the al-Shabab terrorists that claimed the lives of scores of people. Another 200 people were wounded. Kenya, which has 4,000 soldiers in Somalia as part of an African Union military force battling to restore security to Somalia, is the al-Shabab terrorists immediate target, but Nairobi needs help and the international community should be unhesitating in coming to its


Partisan politics fuels budgetary battle

The budget battles in Washington, D.C., are back in the news. The rhetoric blasting from both major parties can be confusing, because it is actually two separate issues: One ght is over a budget for the scal year that begins Tuesday, and a related clash about raising the debt ceiling, which will be reached Oct. 17. Failure to resolve each issue would effectively lead to a government shutdown. Congress has until Tuesday to agree to a scal year 2014 spending plan. The government will undergo a shutdown if the Congress fails to reach an agreement, where all but the most essential services for safety will cease until a compromise is reached. Over the last 40 years, there have been almost 20 short shutdowns of nonessential government operations due to budget impasses. The most well-known shutdown occurred in 1995-96 when President Bill Clinton clashed with House Speaker Newt Gingrich. At that time, the government was shuttered for a total of 28 days. While there is a lot of loose talk about the risk of another recession or even a depression from a short shutdown, that is not a likely outcome this time around. In spring 2013, the Obama Administration warned of a severe economic slowdown due to sequestration mandatory federal spending cuts totaling $85 billion which was passed by Congress and signed by President Obama in 2011. In fact, the economy barely noticed those spending cuts. The experience from 1995-96 also raises doubts that a short shutdown would lead to a recession. At that time, rather than a recession the economy enjoyed a sustained boom. Most important, Congress is already working on a short-term plan to keep the government funded while discussions over Timothy the ultimate shape of Kearney the budget continue. The bigger ght will Contributing Columnist be over the debt limit, which is more than $16 trillion and will be eclipsed around Oct. 17. At that point, the administration will not be able to legally issue any new public debt. In practice, it means the government would only be able to spend as much as it generates in tax revenues. Given the present budget decit of some $700 billion, Washington would be required to initiate deep spending cuts in order to bring the budget into balance immediately unless the debt ceiling is raised. The lack of action by lawmakers, though, would not result in a default by the federal government, as Congress has the ability to pay interest on its existing debts and to borrow to replace debt coming due. In prior debt ceiling negotiations, Congress has been able to secure spending cuts from the Obama Administration by hanging tough. While most of the cuts are just a reduction in projected growth rates, the 2011 debt ceiling deal led to the sequestration deal and actual spending cuts. President Obama has said he would no longer negotiate with Congress even though in 2006 as a senator he called increasing the debt limit a failure of presidential leadership. By not negotiating with Congress, it is hard to reach any conclusion except that he was right. In an era of divided government, protracted budget negotiations should be expected. One important sticking point remains funding the Affordable Care Act, which was passed strictly along a party-line vote. Under our U.S. Constitution, Congress has the responsibility to set the spending priorities of the country. The 113th Congress was elected and re-elected in response to the partisan rewriting of the social contract. It is likely that there will be a bipartisan repealing of parts of the Affordable Care Act, perhaps the tax on medical devices or the exemption for Congress and its staff from the law. A shutdown if any is likely to be brief. For the debt ceiling, it is hard to envision Congress approving a spending plan and then not approving the debt needed to support it and our nation.

World must prepare for U.S.policy changes

The U.S. Federal Reserve has brought both good and bad news by deciding to delay scaling back its massive bond-purchasing program. The Fed has been printing money to inject liquidity into the nancial system and thereby stimulate the U.S. economy. Each month, it has purchased $85 billion worth of Treasury and mortgage bonds to encourage people to borrow, spend and invest. The Fed was widely expected to take its rst step toward rolling back the measures this month. A majority of Wall Street analysts predicted that it would announce a reduction of $10 billion-$15 billion in its bond purchases at its Sept. 18 meeting. But it decided to keep the current quantitative easing measures intact, citing the weak hiring and economic growth gures. The Feds unexpected move is good news for a group of emerging countries whose currencies have plummeted in value since May, when Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke rst


suggested a possible pullback of the stimulus. The Feds decision is welcome as it will give some relief to these vulnerable economies. It also gives them more time to prepare for Washingtons eventual tapering of the monetary stimulus. The Korean government also welcomed the decision, although it experienced an recent inow, rather than an outow, of foreign capital in recent months. Korea is no longer a crisisprone country. Rather, its strong fundamentals have earned it safe haven status. For Korea, the U.S. represents the second-largest single export market. A slow U.S. recovery would hamper growth of Koreas exports. Yet it seems to be only a matter of time before the Fed starts winding down the stimulus program. It is expected to take its rst step within this year. Policymakers need to keep their guard up.

Cartoon on games gets it all wrong

I am writing today because I am very upset with the cartoon printed in todays edition (9/20) blaming video games for the recent Navy Yard shooting. My objections are not with the cartoons message itself, but with the gross factual inaccuracies of the cartoon. The cartoon depicts a video game store with numerous posters for violent shooting-type games; however, it is obvious the artist never heard of, much less played, many of these games mentioned, as there are numerous problems with these posters. The rst and most glaring error is a poster for the game Thrill Kill. Thrill Kill was a game developed in 1997 for a 1998 release that was then canceled. I say again, the game was never released. What does a game that doesnt exist, and was canceled 15 years ago, have to do with anything? Second, the game Postal 2 is being advertised. Postal 2 was released in 2003, 10 years ago. Again, what relevance does this have to today? Third, the game God of War is advertised. God of War takes place during ancient mythological times, so there are no guns whatsoever. How is

Main St., Wilkes-Barre, PA 18711 this game promoting gun violence? Fourth, the games Mortal Kombat and Thrill Kill, (if it had been released, which again, it never was) are depicted in the posters as having people get shot. This is incorrect, as both are/were martial arts ghting games. Mortal Kombat was in fact based off of the old Bruce Lee and Jean-Claude Van Damme kung-fu movies of the 1980s and 1990s. The only character in either game that has a gun is a policeman! Again, how does this promote gun violence? While I think you can certainly make a reasonable argument about the inuence of video games (as well as movies, rap music, etc.) in terms of gun violence, to do so in such a lazy, poorly researched way, is simply insulting to the thousands of people such as myself who have grown up with video games and are normal functioning members of society. This cartoon was simply a bad attempt to the stir the pot and grab some PR for both the paper and artist. The artist simply found a bunch of video game titles with violent names and used them. Never mind how old they are, or if they even have guns in them, or if they even were ever actually made. A simple 30-second Google search proves all of what am saying. That fact that this was not done is unacceptable. Now maybe the cartoonist does not work for you, but if he does I certainly hope he is severely disciplined for this, as well as the editor who was asleep at the wheel. Your paper should also print a retraction as well. If he does not work for your paper, I certainly hope you will forward this along to him, and I certainly hope you will be more diligent in choosing cartoons in the future.

With three former top Penn State ofcials awaiting trial on charges of covering up convicted pedophile Jerry Sanduskys horric predations, easing NCAA sanctions on the football program makes a mockery of those penalties and their ostensible purpose of righting priorities that put gridiron glory ahead of childrens victimization. Indeed, the Penn State conduct alleged in the Freeh report was so egregious that the football program deserved the NCAAs death penalty, which the university avoided by agreeing to unprecedented sanctions without contesting them. Yet now, the NCAA is easing sanctions that apply directly to the football program at the behest of former Sen. George Mitchell, its independent athletics integrity

Wrong move by NCAA


monitor for Penn State. While there is more work to be done, Penn State has clearly demonstrated its commitment to restoring integrity in its athletics program, said Mr. Mitchell in announcing restoration of some football scholarships. That would enable Penn State to again award the one-season maximum of 25 by 201516 and the full-roster maximum of 85 by 2016-17. But so long as Penn State has more work to be done, the NCAA has no business helping refuel Happy Valleys football-rst mentality. Easing these sanctions now sends the message that Penn States failure regarding Mr. Sandusky really wasnt that big a deal and that Nittany Lions football remains the biggest deal of all.

From page 1A The Houses near partyline vote was 231-192, shifting the focus to the Senate less than 48 hours before government funds would run dry. Even if that happens, some critical services such patrolling the borders, inspecting meat and controlling air trafc would continue. Social Security benets would be sent and the Medicare and Medicaid health care programs for the elderly and poor would continue to pay doctors and hospitals. The Senate was not scheduled to meet until midafternoon Monday, 10 hours before a shutdown would begin, and even some Republicans said privately they feared that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., held the advantage in the fastapproaching end game. If so, a House GOP rank and le that includes numerous tea party allies would have to choose between triggering a shutdown or coming away empty-handed from their latest confrontation with Obama. We will not shut the government down, said the No. 3 House GOP leader, Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California. If we have to negotiate a little longer, we will continue to negotiate, he added without elaboration. He suggested the House would get back together in enough time, send another provision not to shut the government down, but to fund it, and it will have a few other options in there for the Senate to look at again. McCarthy said the House would not relent on demands for fundamental changes into Obamacare that can protect the economy. Republicans said the law was costing jobs and driving up costs. The American people overwhelmingly reject Obamacare, said Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. They understand its not working. The only people who arent listening to the argument are the career politicians in Washington. Its Harry Reid who wants to use brute political force. Obama has said he wont let the law, his chief domestic achievement, be gutted. Democrats say Republicans are obsessed with attacking the overhaul, which is aimed at providing health coverage for millions of uninsured Americans, and the president. The House bill did contain new concessions from Republicans, who have criticized the requirements imposed on insurers. They said their measure would leave intact most parts of the law that have taken effect, including requiring insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing conditions and to let families plans cover children up to age 26. An exception: Insurers would be allowed to deny contraception coverage based on religious or moral objections. But it would delay a requirement for people to purchase coverage or face a penalty, and the creation of marketplaces, which are supposed to start functioning this Tuesday, where people could shop for coverage from private insurers. McCarthy and Kaine were on Fox News Sunday, while Cruz appeared on NBCs Meet the Press.

Tom Wolf, businessman and former pastor Max Myers, Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski and Lebanon County Commissioner Jo Ellen Litz. Bradford County Commissioner Mark Smith and former U.S. Rep. Mark Critz, who are seeking the states second ofce, also attended. County Democratic Chairman Bob Boyer said invitations were extended to all Democrats who he understood to be running for the posts, but the others all indicated they had previous engagements that prevented them from attending. Hanger, of Hershey, said he wants to save the states public schools from privatization, condemning cuts to education while spending money on failed charter schools. He wants to keep natural gas drilling out of state parks and allow for more stringent zoning and regulation of drilling on private land. Its insane that we dont have a drilling tax, Hanger said. Wolf, of York, called for renewed emphasis on investing in infrastructure, from xing ailing bridges to improved telecommunications facilities across the state. He said there needs to be a new conversation on those issues and job growth generally, so young people, like his own children, dont feel the need to move out of state to nd good jobs. We need to create a state that attracts people like our daughters, said Wolfe, who also took aim at growing income inequality across

the commonwealth. Myers, from Cumberland County, said he would focus on the states growing poverty epidemic, saying one-fth of Pennsylvanias residents are living at or below the poverty line. He also sounded a cry for improving public schools, bringing manufacturing jobs back to the state by nancing startups, if necessary and better environmental stewardship. I am not opposed to natural gas, I am opposed to pollution, said Myers, adding that he favors a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, until more is understood about the process or it is replaced by a different method. Pawlowski reiterated the message he brought to Luzerne County during an appearance in Hazleton earlier this month, describing his success in working to revive Allentowns nances, funding its once-struggling pension system and encouraging new development. He pointed to the vast number of struggling cities across the state as evidence of the work that needs to be done. We have a one-party system, folks, he said of Republicans who control the governors mansion and legislature. And yet they cant get basic things done, like passing a transportation bill.

Litz, who served on the metropolitan planning organization in her county, stressed the need for properly funding infrastructure. She also said the natural gas industry is not paying its fair share of taxes, both by incorporating out of the state and by not being required to pay a severance tax. Those are two big-ticket items that would help solve our problems, said Litz, who added that shed like to see the state capitalize on an overlooked industry: chocolatemaking, which is done here by 76 companies. Id love to be known as Pennsylvania, a state of chocolate, Litz said. Critz, of Johnstown, lost a bitter battle for the 12th District Congressional seat last year to Republican Keith Rothfus. He said his record as a tough campaigner and his time in Congress would serve him well as lieutenant governor. Also, he noted that being from Western Pennsylvania would balance well with the many gubernatorial hopefuls from the states eastern counties. Smith, who described growing up in a mobile home and going to food banks with his grandparents, described himself as an example of the people whom Democrats philosophy is intended to help. After graduating from college and working as an industrial designer in Detroit, he moved home to Bradford County. In 2008 at age 29, he was that countys youngest commissioner chairman and only the second Democrat to hold the post.

Leon Kolanowski looks over the gourmet desserts offered by the Westmoreland Club on Sunday at the St. Vincent de Paul Kitchen gourmet dining event celebrating 30 years of service.

Aimee Dilger | The Times Leader

From page 1A restaurants and other food-service providers donated gourmet food and rafe items to serve guests who paid $30 per person or $50 per pair for tickets to benet the kitchen. Kelly predicted the event could bring in as much as $50,000 for the kitchen, or double what organizers had hoped. Were so happy with the turnout, he said. But his joy at Sundays packed house stands in contrast to the sobering $400,000 per year that it costs to serve basic meals to needy individuals and families and that is with a 90 percent volunteer staff, the monsignor said. Sister Lucille Brislin knows the need all too well. She was named the kitchens rst on-site coordinator in 1983, and admits that the problems facing needy people today are an even greater challenge than what organizers encountered 30 years ago.


For more information, see or call 570-829-7796. What we see now is that the issue of poverty is far more complex, there are more layers of poverty, Brislin said, noting that more people in what had been the middle class are nding themselves struggling to provide the essentials of life. Scranton Bishop Joseph C. Bambera praised the kitchens work, adding that many who greeted him Sunday wanted to chat about the Catholic Churchs new leader, Pope Francis. Bambera reminded the audience of the new pontiffs emphasis on Jesus Christs message of serving others before serving oneself, as he said kitchen staff and volunteers have done. Other fundraisers, including the kitchens main sponsor for a day program, also help keep the food on the tables. Dave Shemo, president of the St. Vincent Kitchen Advisory Board, said Sundays event was a tting way to recognize the kitchens three decades of service while raising funds. We are an agency that feeds people, 365 days a year, Shemo said. What better way to celebrate that than to have a festival of food? Presenting sponsors of the event were attorney and Mrs. Carl N. Frank, Mericle Commercial Real Estate, McCarthy Tire Service and Sundance Vacations. Im touched by the generosity, Shemo said. And Im not surprised, because our community is a generous one.

From page 1A will be posted once a week at www.luzernecounty. org, with the rst posting tentatively slated for Friday. Pedri advised council against sending each other emails containing information that isnt subject to release, such as discussions about pending litigation or certain personnel information. He has decided to review the emails before they are posted, at least initially, to make sure they are not disclosing information that is exempt from public release. The emails citizens sent to a council member wont be publicly posted unless the council member forwards the information to one or more council colleagues, Pedri said. County Information Technology Director Steve Englot estimates he will spend about a half hour per week rounding up and posting the emails but said there is no additional expense to offer the service. Some citizens scolded council members earlier this year for discussing county matters through email. Their criticism stemmed from Councilman Elaine Maddons reference during a council meeting to a council email exchange she read about the topic of lling council vacancies. While some council members never share views through emails, the responses of those who do are often copied to all 11 council members. If you want open government, this is the place to discuss it not private emails, West Wyoming resident Ray Gustave told council in March. Kingston resident Brian Shiner, who faithfully attends meetings, said he and other citizens hes spoken to do not know what to expect from the online posting. If they use the county email solely to communicate, its a positive step, but if they switch to private email and phone calls, it will do an end-run around the goal of making the emails public, Shiner said. The sharing of county information through email started accelerating in January 2004, when then-Commissioner Todd Vonderheid complained hand-delivered memos were required to invite row ofcers to a meeting. The employees and ofcials who had email at the time didnt pay much attention to it because prior commissioners rarely used email to convey messages. Lawton also said he will be posting a check register on the county website this month listing each payment another rst for the county. The register will be published monthly and allow citizens to track the spending of county funds as they would in their own checking account, he said.

rays, rangers not done yet

BEN WALKER The Tampa Bay Rays and Texas Rangers are pushing this regular season to game No. 163. On a Sunday punctuated by Miamis Henderson Alvarez pitching a no-hitter, Tampa Bay and Texas both won and wound up even, forcing a tiebreaker for the second AP photo AL wild-card spot. The Rays will play at Texas on Monday Tampa Bay Rays James Loney, left, Matt Joyce, center, and Sam Fuld, right, celebrate after the Rays defeated the Toronto Blue Jays night, with the winner visiting Cleveland on Wednesday night in another all-or-nothing 7-6 on Sunday in Toronto. matchup. Rangers rookie Martin Perez starts against reigning AL Cy Young winner David Price. Texas gets a boost, too All-Star slugger Nelson Cruz will be active after his 50-game penalty from Major League Baseball in the Biogenesis drug scandal. Hes served his suspension, Rays star Evan Longoria said. It is what it is. Justice has been served. Asked if he expected to play, Cruz said: I think so. It will be baseballs rst tiebreaker ofcially, this is a regular-season game and the stats count since Minnesota beat Detroit 6-5 in 12 innings for the 2009 AL Central title. What was supposed to be the nal day of the regular season began with the possibility of a three-way tie for a pair of AL wild-card spots. Instead, Cleveland clinched its rst postseason berth since 2007, winning 5-1 at Minnesota to nish at 92-70 and one game ahead of Texas and Tampa Bay as the top wild card.

Steelers off to worst start in 45 years

In this Nov. 18, 2012 photo, former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end L.C. Greenwood stands on the sidelines during a ceremony honoring the Pittsburgh Steelers 80th anniversary team. Greenwood, who won four Super Bowls as a member of the Steel Curtain defense, died Sunday in Pittsburgh. He was 67.

DENVER Peyton Manning made quick work of the Philadelphia Eagles in a game that was billed as fast-break football at its nest. The Denver Broncos scored more points than they ever had in their 54-year history on Sunday, blowing out the Eagles 52-20 behind Mannings four touchdown throws and two special teams scores. With two TD passes each to Demaryius Thomas and Wes Welker, Manning completed all but a-half dozen of his 34 throws for 327 yards. He didnt even step on the eld in the fourth quarter and cooled his cleats on the sideline for a 12-minute stretch in the rst half, too. Ho hum. Just another day in the life of Manning, whose 16 TD passes are the most in the rst month of a season, besting the previous mark of 14 set by Don Meredith in 1966 and tied by Kurt Warner in 1999. Manning also joined Milt Plum in 1960 as the only quarterbacks to throw that many touchdown passes without an interception. In a game billed as a warp-speed matchup between teams that like to snap the ball quickly, Manning got off to a rather slow start but drove the Broncos (4-0) on a trio of long touchdown drives in the third quarter to make this one another laugher. The Eagles also (1-3) surrendered two TDs on special teams in losing for the third straight time, all to AFC West opponents: Trindon Hollidays 105-yard kickoff return and Steven Johnsons blocked punt, which he scooped up himself and returned for a 17-yard score. Matt Praters 53-yard eld goal capped Denvers 15th straight regular season win, which bested the franchise mark of 14 set in 1997-98 and also broke the previous franchise scoring record of 50 points set against San Diego on Oct. 6, 1963. Only the 1966 Dallas Cowboys, with 183 points, scored more than the Broncos 179 in their rst four games. Holliday, the former NCAA track champion who has run sub-10-second 100-meter dashes, tied his own franchise record with a 105-yard touchdown return on a kickoff in the rst half. It was his sixth TD return in 21 career games. It oddly worked in Philadelphias favor, keeping Manning on the sideline for more than 12 minutes on the game clock, and Michael Vick capitalized on a tiring Denver defense to keep it close for a while. The Broncos led 21-13 at halftime. After throwing a 6-yard scoring pass to Welker, Manning stood impatiently on the sideline for the nal 10:19 of the rst quarter and the rst 42 seconds of the second quarter, and when he did get the ball back, his 40-yard pass went off a wide-open Eric Deckers ngertips.

Big Ben:Were the worst

AP Sports Writer

LONDON Greg Jennings showed that the Vikings have someone other than Adrian Peterson who can make big plays. Jennings and Peterson provided the kind of 1-2 punch Minnesota had been hoping for when it signed the wide receiver in the offseason, and each scored two touchdowns in a 34-27 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers at Londons Wembley Stadium for the Vikings rst victory of the season. It would have been a long ight back to take after a loss, Jennings said. It was a special day. To do this at Wembley Stadium is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Not so for the Steelers, who fell to 0-4 for the rst time since 1968. Thats a hole only one team has dug itself out of to make the playoffs, the San Diego Chargers in 1992. So much for the city of Big Ben giving a lift to Ben Roethlisberger. We are in unchartered territories and the water is dangerous right now, so we have to stick together and get out of it, Roethlisberger said. Right now, you could say were the worst team in the league. That hurts.

PITTSBURGH L.C. Greenwood, the relentless defensive end who made up one quarter of the Pittsburgh Steelers Steel Curtain defense of the 1970s, has died. He was 67. The Allegheny County Medical Examiners ofce said Greenwood died Sunday from undisclosed causes just before noon at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital. A six-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro, Greenwood played for the Steelers from 1969-81, helping Pittsburgh win an unprecedented four Super Bowls in a six-year span. Greenwood, Joe Greene, Ernie Holmes and Dwight White formed the bedrock of the defense that helped turn a perennial loser into a dynasty. L.C. was one of the most beloved Steelers during the most successful period in team history and he will be missed by the entire organization, Chairman Dan Rooney said in a statement. He will forever be remembered for what he meant to the Steelers both on and off the eld. Greenwood was taken in the 10th round of the 1969 NFL draft nine rounds after Greene out of Arkansas A&M (now Arkansas Pine-Bluff). He blossomed into a tenacious pass rusher who used his superior speed to blow past offensive tackles and into the backeld. Though sacks did not become an ofcial statistic until after his retirement, Greenwood posted 73 during his 13-year career. Greenwood thrived in the postseason. He sacked Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach four times in the 1976 Super Bowl, a 21-17 Pittsburgh victory. See GREEWOOD | 2B

Its a record great eight at Monster Mile for Johnson

AP Sports Writer

DOVER, Del. Jimmie Johnson held off a teammate, passed a pair of Hall of Famers, and dominated once more at Dover. His slice of track history was more than just another milestone to tack on his bio. His latest win at his favorite track put the Chase eld on notice that his run at a sixth championship in the No. 48 is gaining steam. Johnson never let Dale Earnhardt Jr. catch him down the stretch Sunday and won for a record eighth time at Dover International Speedway. Johnson had shared the mark of seven wins AP photo on the concrete mile with Bobby Allison and Jimmie Johnson celebrates in Victory Lane after he won the NASCAR Sprint Cup race Sunday at Dover International Speedway. Richard Petty.

Truthfully, it was the rst thought that went through my mind when I crossed the nish line, Johnson said. It wasnt long after I thought about the impact of winning in the Chase. Johnsons win bumped him from third to second in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship standings. Matt Kenseth, who won the rst two Chase races, holds an eight-point over Johnson as the Chase heads to Kansas for the fourth race. Led by Johnsons fth win, the entire top 10 was made up of Chase drivers. Joey Logano, Jeff Gordon and Kyle Busch rounded out the top ve. Kevin Harvick, Kenseth, Ryan Newman, Greg Bife and Clint Bowyer completed the top 10. Youve got to win when youre at your

best track, Johnson said. We had to win here today. I think any points on the 18 or 20 would have been a very good day. Max points, its an awesome day. Not so much for Earnhardt, who had one of the fastest cars, but he missed pit road and gave up the lead early in the race. He had a strong enough No. 88 Chevrolet to get back into the race and contend for his rst win of the season but couldnt pass Johnson. We left everybody in the mirror. We were clicking off some laps, Earnhardt said. But just not fast enough to get to Jimmie. Kenseth kept his points lead even as he fell short in trying to become the rst driver to win the rst three Chase races. See NASCAR | 6B

in this Oct. 28, 1979 photo, the ball pops loose as Dallas quarterback Roger staubach is tackled by Pittsburgh steelers l.C. Greenwood during a game in Pittsburgh. Greenwood, who won four super Bowls as a member of the steel Curtain defense, died sunday in Pittsburgh. He was 67.

AP file photo

From page 1B Unlike the quiet Holmes, the intimidating White and the unparalleled Greene, Greenwood was a showman. While recovering from an ankle injury during the 1973 season, Greenwood wore a pair of high top cleats that a friend painted gold. He wore them twice both Steelers wins and went back to his usual cleats after the ankle healed. The Steelers lost the ensuing game, and the gold cleats soon returned. Knee problems forced Greenwood to retire before the 1982 season. His 13 years in Pittsburgh are tied for the third-longest tenure with the team in franchise history. Greenwood remained in Pittsburgh after his retirement, working as an entrepreneur and motivational speaker. Despite support from his teammates including Greene Greenwood has not been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He was a nalist six times, the last coming in 2006.

Its all new for Mohawks


Meyers is having a great start under rst-year coach Allison Banks, as the Mohawks lead WVC Division 2 and have yet to lose in league play. Meyers has had great play across the board, scoring at least two goals in each of its divisional games while allowing just ve goals in six games. As a new coach, I came in not knowing anyone and trying to give everyone a chance, Banks said. This team has really played well together. The defense has been doing a great job with talking to each other and making plays. And (goalie) Sabrina (Robertson) has been just great for us. That defense and the rst-year starter in the net have helped Meyers reduce its goals against from 1.65 in 2012 to 1.14 so far this season.

WILKES-BARRE TWP. Eric Hartzell did something that he didnt have a chance to do since his college days. The rookie netminder played a full game, manning the net for all three periods of the Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins 2-1 win over the Hershey Bears on Sunday. Hartzell, 24, stopped 20 of the 21 shots he faced, including a urry in the waning seconds to preserve the win. It was fun to end the game like that, he said. But just to be able to get that full professional preseason game under my belt is nice. Last season, Hartzell wrapped up his college career at Quinnipiac University, where he started all but one of his teams games over the last three seasons. In his rst experience as a pro with the Penguins, Hartzell played half a game twice before getting the full three periods on Sunday. On the preseason, hes made 45 saves on 49 shots. So far, one of the toughest adjustments to the pro game for Hartzell has been not playing all three periods every night.

The rst game in Rochester, they came at us hard in the rst period and had 16 shots and two goals. Thats one of the games you wish you could play the whole night because, after that, you feel you can stop anything, Hartzell said. When you get yanked after one period it really doesnt reect how you played. Nor does playing all three periods of the last exhibition game necessarily mean that Hartzell has an edge in the Penguins goaltending competition for the starting job. Head coach John Hynes said Hartzell, who out of Andy Chiodo and Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers was the only netminder to play a full preseason game, got the chance in order to gain experience. Still, Hynes liked what he saw from his young netminder. He played well tonight. He was tested and came up large there at the end, Hynes said. He got better as the training camp has gone on. Now, Hartzell will get back to work in practice and hope he sticks as the Penguins begin to trim the roster. And after spending the

last three years as the number one guy for his college team, Hartzell will continue to adjust to being a rookie again, even though his play in net suggests otherwise. Coach Hynes and Billy (Guerin) gave me a talk about what I have to do to not only be the good rookie but to continue to succeed and grow. They really helped to put me in my place, Hartzell said. Not that I had a big head or anything. They were making sure that I knew I was a rookie again. And what comes with that job? Its fun to pick up pucks. I didnt do it for the last three years, Hartzell said.

- With Sundays 2-1 win over Hershey, the Penguins wrap up the preseason with a 2-1-1 record. Nick Drazenovic scored on a rst period power play and D Philip Samuelsson added a nice goal in the third period for the game-winner. Carrying the puck toward the net, Samuelsson acted like he was going to skate around the back but abruptly stopped and tucked the puck behind Hershey netminder Riley Gill for the score. Theres plenty more to

come, Samuelsson joked after the game. But in all seriousness, showing an offensive side to his game is a goal Samuelsson has set for himself this year. It kind of shows my game has progressed. I dont want to be labeled as a one-dimensional defenseman, he said. I have some offensive upside. The more comfortable I get, the more plays Ill be able to make. - Hynes said roster cuts will be made today, but he hasnt decided how many players will go. - Sundays game featured plenty of offensive chances and 21 shots from the Penguins, but Hynes said scoring is an area where

his team can improve. In four preseason games the Penguins scored seven goals. I think our team game can get better offensively. Thats an area we have to grow in this week before we get into the regular season (Oct. 5). - F Bobby Farnham, D Brian Dumoulin, D Harrison Ruopp and G Peter Mannino have battled injuries and didnt play a preseason game. As far as who could be ready for the start of the regular season, Hynes said Farnham should be able to go, Dumoulin and Mannino were possible and Ruopp wont be ready.

Penguins ready for another run at Stanley

Every year, teams have to nd new players to replace those who have graduated. Wyoming Area has done a nice job transitioning in new players this season, especially a pair of freshmen.

WEST POINT, N.Y. Sidney Crosby leaned down to unlace his skates in the locker room after a spirited practice at Armys Tate Rink, then glanced around and smiled at all the familiar faces. Home away from home for the Pittsburgh Penguins superstar. Its nice to have everyone here, Crosby said. Their exhibition slate over and the new NHL season looming, the Penguins traveled to West Point for three days of training and team building over the weekend. It was their third trip here since 2007, and general manager Ray Shero was hopeful the experience would help a team that opped badly against the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup playoffs just when it seemed destined to challenge for its fourth championship. Were getting together with our group in a different place, but its not just a different place, Crosby said. Its pretty special. Were all together in this. Were trying to benet from all this. The team arrived Friday morning, met with members of the football team before the Black Knights ew to Dallas for a game, had lunch with the cadets, and listened to a brief talk from Army hockey coach Brian Riley

before hitting the ice for the rst time. Not much seems to have changed. After their stunning exit in four games in the Eastern Conference nals, the Penguins appear set to give it another go at the Stanley Cup. While other teams make themselves over year after year, Pittsburgh has maintained the status quo on its roster. The Penguins signed high-scoring Evgeni Malkin, defenseman Kris Letang, winger Pascal Dupuis, and coach Dan Bylsma to contract extensions, essentially keeping the core of the team intact. Also back is goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, whos in the last two years of his contract and was a weak link in the playoffs. Well see how its going

to work, Shero said. I think these guys are at the right age. That core group is about 26 years old. They should be going into their prime. Its not like we made long-term commitments to players that are 33, 34, 35 years old. These guys are special players, top players, and you try to keep them. Weve been a good hockey team over the last seven years, and we want to try to win a Stanley Cup again like everybody else, said Shero, who also signed a familiar face from the past, defenseman Rob Scuderi. The players appreciate what management has done. I think it helps, said Crosby, healthy again after being plagued by injuries that included a concussion suffered at the 2011 Winter

Classic. Theres no guarantees. It doesnt mean that the seasons not a process. Being familiar, having that trust in one another, knowing your role and whats expected, that goes a long way. Im glad that were able to have that. Thats huge, Dupuis said. You want to go to battle with guys that you trust. I wanted to come back. I didnt know how much they wanted me back. Seeing all these pieces of the puzzle falling back together, now its a matter of us playing together and making it happen. You dont want to repeat history. You dont want to be a team that does it again and again. At the same time, you can learn from this stuff. That these star players faltered at the most inopportune of times is certainly not unprecedented in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Just ask Bobby Orr, Phil

Esposito and their teammates on the 1971 Boston Bruins. The highest-scoring team in league history to that point was beaten in seven games by the aging Montreal Canadiens, who used a stunning performance by goalie Ken Dryden, a rookie with six NHL games under his belt, to spur an upset nobody in his right mind would have predicted. The Penguins played the Bruins three times in the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season and won all three by one goal. After beating the New York Islanders and Ottawa Senators in the playoffs, Pittsburgh collapsed. The highest-scoring team in the league went bust as Crosby and Malkin didnt score a single point and Boston outscored Pittsburgh 12-2 in the sweep.


EDMONTON, Alberta The Edmonton Oilers chose former Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguin Andrew Ference their new team captain on Sunday, making him the 14th in franchise history. The 34-year-old Ference is entering his 14th NHL season and his first with the Oilers. Drafted in the eighth round of the 1997 draft, Ference has 37 goals, 156 assists and 645 penalty minutes in 760 career games. The Edmonton native has played for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Calgary Flames, and Boston Bruins throughout his NHL career. He helped Boston to its sixth Stanley Cup championship in 2011.

SeahawksOT rally makes history

The Associated Press

HOUSTON Steven Hauschka kicked a 45-yard eld goal in overtime to give the Seattle Seahawks a 23-20 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday and the rst 4-0 start in franchise history. Houston (2-2) failed to score on two possessions in overtime. The Seahawks got the win on their second drive in overtime after rallying from a 20-3 decit. A key play on the winning drive came when Doug Baldwin caught a 7-yard pass and Kareem Jackson was penalized for unnecessary roughness for dumping him into the ground. That got Seattle in eld goal range and Hauschkas kick came four plays later.

From page 1B Unlike the quiet Holmes, the intimidating White and the unparalleled Greene, Greenwood was a showman. While recovering from an ankle injury during the 1973 season, Greenwood wore a pair of high top cleats that a friend painted gold. He wore them twice both Steelers wins and went back to his usual cleats after the ankle healed. The Steelers lost the ensuing game, and the gold cleats soon returned. Knee problems forced Greenwood to retire before the 1982 season. His 13 years in Pittsburgh are tied for the third-longest tenure with the team in franchise history. Greenwood remained in Pittsburgh after his retirement, working as an entrepreneur and motivational speaker. Despite support from his team-

From page 1B 60-yard touchdown in the second quarter. They still needed a big stop from the defense in the closing moments, when Everson Griffen stripped Roethlisberger of the ball on the 6-yard line with 19 seconds left and Kevin Williams recovered the fumble to seal the victory. It feels great to get our rst home win of the season, Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said. And we had to come all the way to London to get it. I think Ill always have a special place in my heart for Wembley Stadium. He suddenly has a bit of a quarterback controversy as well. Cassel nished 16 of 25 for 248 yards and two touchdowns with no turnovers. But with Ponder hoping to have recovered from a rib injury after the coming bye week, Frazier said he doesnt expect a permanent switch. If youre asking, our quarterback is Christian Ponder, Frazier said. Now well discuss a lot of things when we come out of the bye, but were going to enjoy this victory for a little while at least. Regardless of the quarterback, Peterson and Jennings will pose a threat to any team going forward. Peterson ran for 140 yards on 23 carries while Jennings nished with 92 yards on three receptions. That offset two touchdown runs by Pittsburghs rookie running back LeVeon Bell, who made his long-awaited debut for the Steelers after a foot injury. He gave the team its rst rushing touchdowns of the season by breaking off to the right for an 8-yard score to make it 10-7, somersaulting into the end zone, and again pulled Pittsburgh within 3 by plowing in from the 1-yard line in the third quarter. But Peterson and Jennings added their second touchdowns to help Minnesota pull away, although Pittsburgh made sure it was a tense nish after Jerricho Cotchery caught a 15-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter and Shaun Suisham kicked a 28-yard eld goal to make it a one-possession game with 3:40 left. The Steelers got the ball back on their own 22-yard line with 1:43 left and no timeouts, and Roethlisberger completed six passes to get a rst-and-goal at the 6. But after spiking the ball, he overthrew Cotchery in the end zone and was stripped on the next play. Roethlisberger nished 36 for 51 for 383 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. The Steelers are still looking for their rst turnover of the season, as they failed to recover Cassels fumble on the Vikings 38 in the second quarter, with the ball bouncing forward before being recovered by Jerome Simpson for a 10-yard gain. We came up short, but we played better than we have in recent weeks, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said. We gave up explosive plays, you cant do that. Were going to focus on getting better, and thats whats going to change the outcome of football games.

Indians returning to postseason

TheAssociated Press

Rays 7, Blue Jays 6

MINNEAPOLIS The surging Cleveland Indians earned their rst postseason berth since 2007, beating the Minnesota Twins 5-1 Sunday to clinch an AL wild card as Ubaldo Jimenez tied a career high with 13 strikeouts. Nick Swisher homered in the rst inning for the Indians, who became the rst major league team to win its nal 10 regular-season games since the 1971 Baltimore Orioles nished with 11 straight victories, according to STATS. Jimenez (13-9) gave up one run and ve hits in 6 2-3 innings for the Indians, who became the rst team to sweep seven four-game series in one regular season since the 1943 St. Louis Cardinals. After the nal out, Cleveland players mobbed each other on the diamond in a jubilant celebration. Scott Diamond (6-13) gave up four runs two earned and seven hits for the Twins (66-96).
Rangers 6, Angels 2

TORONTO Evan Longoria and Tampa Bay assured the Rays would tie for an AL wild-card berth, scoring six runs in the rst inning and then holding off Toronto. Longoria hit an RBI double as the Rays used their highestscoring rst inning since 2010 to go ahead early. Tampa Bay took a 7-0 lead into the sixth before Toronto rallied.
Orioles 7, Red Sox 6

BALTIMORE Ryan Flaherty had two hits subbing for Chris Davis after baseballs home run champ left with a sprained wrist, and Baltimore wrapped up its season with a victory over playoff-bound Boston.
Yankees 5, Astros 1, 14 innings

ARLINGTON, Texas Texas forced a one-game tiebreaker for the second AL wild-card spot, winning its seventh straight when Geovany Soto hit a tiebreaking RBI double and later homered to beat Los Angeles. About the same time Tampa Bay wrapped up its 7-6 win at Toronto to necessitate a victory by the Rangers to keep playing, Craig Gentry hit a two-run single in the fth for a 2-1 lead. Los Angeles quickly tied the game against major league strikeout leader Yu Darvish in the sixth, but the Rangers went ahead to stay in the bottom half on Sotos two-out double. Adrian Beltre and Soto added solo homers in the eighth.

HOUSTON Mark Reynolds hit a tiebreaking homer in a four-run 14th inning, and New York went into an offseason of uncertainty with a victory over Houston, whose 15-game losing streak was the longest at the end of the season in more than a century. Alex Rodriguez also didnt get into the game. The appeal of his 211-game drug suspension starts Monday. New York nished with its fewest wins in a non-strike season since 1992 and failed to make the playoffs for only the second time in 19 years. CHICAGO Bruce Chen pitched four-hit ball into the seventh inning and Kansas City beat Chicago to nish off its best season in 24 years.

MarlinsAlvarez no-hits Tigers

AP Sports Writer

From page 1A The Dodgers will be minus center elder Matt Kemp for the postseason because of swelling in a bone in his left ankle, an injury that caused him to missed 52 in the last two months. In the AL, Detroit opens at Oakland and the wild card visits Boston. Texas won its seventh in a row, downing the visiting Los Angeles Angels 6-2. Tampa Bay held on for a 7-6 win at Toronto. To the Rays, this tiebreaker is a chance for payback. Texas beat Tampa Bay in the division series in 2010 and 2011. The Rangers are hosting this game because they won the season series, 4-3. We have something to prove in Texas, Longoria said. Weve left that place too many times with our heads down and disappointed. I feel like now is the time to be able to turn that page.

MIAMI The Detroit Tigers are saving their hits for the playoffs. With their postseason slot already decided as AL Central champions, the Tigers watched the other team do all the celebrating Sunday, when Henderson Alvarez pitched a no-hitter and the Miami Marlins scored in the bottom of the ninth to win 1-0. The only run scored when Luke Putkonen threw a wild pitch with two out and the bases loaded in the ninth. The Marlins mobbed Alvarez, who had been standing in the ondeck circle because he was due to bat next. The Tigers played with a patchwork lineup but didnt begrudge Alvarez or the Marlins for celebrating. It was exciting for them and it was very special for him, so you have to be happy for that,

no matter what side youre on, Tigers inelder Hernan Perez said. Any time a guy gets a no-hitter there should be a big celebration, and its great for the Marlins to end the season that way. The no-hitter was the rst for the Marlins since Anibal Sanchez now with the Tigers threw one in 2006 against Arizona. Sanchez watched from the visitors dugout as fellow Venezuelan Alvarez celebrated the feat. It was great to be a part of such an exciting moment for this guy, Sanchez said. He threw a great game, and Im really excited he did that. Detroits Justin Verlander struck out 10 in six scoreless innings in his nal tuneup for the playoffs. The Tigers righthander allowed only three hits but three more than Alvarez. He threw a heck of a ballgame, Verlander said. To do something like that is pretty impressive.

Nick Swisher homered as the Indians became the rst big league team to win their nal 10 regular-season games since Baltimore closed with 11 straight victories in 1971, STATS said. Im telling you, were bringing that wild-card game back to the 216 and that place is going to be packed out and rockin, baby! Swisher said, citing Clevelands area code. Rookie Danny Salazar is set to start for the Indians against either Texas or Tampa Bay. The NL playoff scene is settled. Johnny Cueto starts for Cincinnati against Francisco Liriano and the Pirates at Pittsburgh on Tuesday night in the NL wild-card playoff. In the best-of-ve division series, the NL wildcard winner is at St. Louis AP photo and the Los Angeles Miami Marlins starting pitcher Henderson Alvarez, left, and Jose Fernandez, right, celebrate Dodgers start at Atlanta. Alvarezs no-hitter against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.

Heat signs Spoelstra to multiyear extension NASCAR

The Associated Press

MIAMI Erik Spoelstra has been with the Miami Heat for nearly two decades, and their relationship wont be ending anytime soon. Spoelstra has signed a multiyear extension to remain as coach of the two-time defending NBA champion Heat, the team said Sunday afternoon. The move comes one day after the Heat announced several

other front-ofce moves, including promoting Andy Elisburg to general manager and hiring Juwan Howard as an assistant coach. Spoelstra is 260-134 in his rst ve seasons with Miami, going to the playoffs in each of those years, the NBA nals in each of the last three and winning the title in 2012 and 2013. His resume suggests that hes already well on a Hall of Fame path: Only 12 other men in NBA history mul-

tiple championships as a coach, and only seven others have collected rings in backto-back years. Hes won while helping LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh not only gure out ways to play with one another, but having each of those stars change their game to make everything t within the Heat system. Last season may have been Spoelstras

best coaching job. The Heat rolled through the regular season, winning 27 straight games at one point on the way to a 66-16 record. Then in the playoffs, Miami had to rally from a 1-0 second-round decit against Chicago and ultimately had to grind out seven-game victories over Indiana in the Eastern Conference nals and San Antonio in the NBA Finals.

Southern Cal cans Kiffin as losses mount

AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES Southern California red Lane Kifn early Sunday morning, ending the coachs tumultuous tenure a few hours after the Trojans lost 62-41 at Arizona State. USC posted a short news release on its sports website saying athletic director Pat Haden informed Kifn

of the decision upon the team c h a r t e r s arrival b a c k in Los A n ge l e s Kiffin after the ugly defeat. The Trojans (3-2, 0-2 Pac-12) matched the most points allowed in school history in their seventh loss in 11 games.

USC spokesman Tim Tessalone declined to conrm ESPNs report that Ed Orgeron, Kifns assistant head coach and the former Mississippi head coach, would take over in an interim role. Orgeron didnt return a message from the AP. After Saturdays loss, Kifn said of his job security, Thats the last thing Im worried about.

Now USC must nish an already disappointing season without Kifn while looking for another coach to reboot its proud program. The Trojans have a bye this week before returning Oct. 10 at the Coliseum against Arizona. Kifn went 28-15 in parts of four seasons in his selfdescribed dream job, but USC is 0-2 in conference play for the rst time since 2001 after losses to Arizona State and Washington State. The ring comes less than ve months after Haden said Kifn had been as good as he can be in the face of USCs sanctions. Before this season began, Haden said he was 100 percent behind the

embattled Kifn. But like the precocious coachs other two head coaching jobs, his USC tenure had a quick, messy exit. Kifn faced enormous expectations at USC especially last season, when the Trojans started out ranked No. 1 in the country with quarterback Matt Barkley and star receivers Robert Woods and Marqise Lee. USC wound up falling out of the top 10 by midSeptember, and out of the poll entirely by November ending the season as the rst team in nearly a half-century to open No. 1 and nish unranked. USC lost ve of its last six games, including the Sun

Bowl, and Kifn parted ways with his father, defensive guru Monte Kifn. Kifn largely stayed out of NCAA trouble at USC. But while everybody realized the challenges facing Kifn and his staff, he didnt help his navigation of the Trojans troubles with his standofsh personality and several strange ethical decisions. Last year, USC was reprimanded by the Pac12 for underinating footballs before a loss to Oregon. Kifn also was criticized for switching jersey numbers on players in an attempt to deceive the Trojans opponents. The offense has been largely terrible this season, but Kifn was nally undone by another dreadful game by his defense, which had been solid under new coordinator Clancy Pendergast until Arizona State piled up 612 yards.

For how bad I felt like we struggled with the car, that was a decent finish, Kenseth said. Johnson dominated as he usually does at Dover and led 243 of the 400 laps to help extend his Chase record with his 23rd career win in 93 starts in NASCARs version of the playoffs. He swept Dover in 2002 and 2009 and won races in 2005, 2010 and 2012. He jumped a restart and served a pass-through penalty that cost him the win in the spring race. Crew chief Chad Knaus brought the same car back for this one and, this time, Johnson was pretty much flawless. Johnson has his sights set on a bigger piece of NASCAR history. Hes in the hunt for his sixth Cup championship, which would put him one behind Petty and Dale Earnhardt Sr. for most in series history. Jimmie is probably the most underrated champion we have in this industry, Knaus said. He is by far and above the most powerful driver over the course of the last 25, 35 years in this sport. Johnson caught a huge break when Earnhardt slowed during a greenflag pit stop and missed the entrance to pit road. He went from holding a 3.7-second lead on Johnson to trailing by more than 9 seconds after he finally made his stop. Johnson took the lead and took off for his 65th victory in 428 career starts. Even smart pit strategy that included a late four-tire stop wasnt enough to boost Earnhardt past his Hendrick Motorsports teammate. The mistake I made coming on to pit road and missing pit road completely (cost us), Earnhardt said. If I had not given up that track position and had a smart enough race to keep the lead when it counted, right at the end we might have won the race. It would have been hard to get by us just like it was hard to get by Jimmie. Other Chase driver finishes include, Kasey Kahne in 13th, Kurt Busch 21st, and Carl Edwards 35th. Edwards entered fourth in the standings but plummeted to 11th once a late tire issue sent him to the garage.

Family members refuse to pay for deadbeat dads cremation expenses

Dear Abby: I was divorced 14 years ago. Afterward, my ex, Tom, hid from me because he was afraid Id have him arrested for not paying child support. Our son is a Marine, and the Red Cross notified him that his father was dying in a hospital on the East Coast. My exs aunt had contacted them to notify my son as next of kin. Tom had remarried, divorced again and had a girlfriend. He died a few days later. Nobody is willing to pay for his cremation. I asked his sister and aunt if we could split the bill three ways, even though I realize Im not obligated. They refused, even after being told the remains would be deemed

ADVICE unclaimed. The county would dispose of him as an indigent drifter. I do not resent my ex because I realize his death was as unpredictable as his life. But I do feel bitterly taken advantage of. How can I demonstrate honor to my son by dishonoring his father that way? On the Spot in California
Dear On The Spot: You are not the next of kin; your son is. Ask him what he thinks would be the appropriate way to handle his deadbeat dads remains. You made the effort to have the family pay for the burial, and that

should show your son that you tried to honor his father. I dont know how long it has been since your ex passed, but this is a case where the body could have been donated to a medical school. Dear Abby: A friend who lives out of town asked me if she can stay with me for a few days. We often host each other. However, she also mentioned that she has a bedbug infestation. I could take precautions, but some friends have said it was nervy of her to even ask because it put me in an awkward position. I honestly would prefer she not come. Any advice? Possible Host in New York Dear Possible Host: Yes. Tell your friend you would love to see her, but

in light of her revelation, you think it would be better if she stays in a hotel during this visit. And unless you are absolutely sure that her home and clothing are insect-free, entertain her away from your dwelling. Dear Abby: My husband died three years ago and Im still grieving deeply. Time hasnt made it easier; in fact, its getting more difficult. No one around me understands or even cares. How do I find a good therapist? I dont know what questions to ask to see if I can trust him or her with my thoughts, and if we would get along. Any suggestions? Dying of a Broken Heart Dear Dying: A way to find a good therapist would be to ask friends

and/or your doctor for referrals and explain that since your husbands death your grief hasnt lessened. Your state psychological association can also provide the names of members who specialize in grief counseling. Interview several prospective therapists. A question you should ask is how many patients with your problem he or she has successfully treated. However, the bottom line is whether you feel the therapist listens well and has the compassion to help you.
