WASHINGTON — President
Barack Obama ordered grisly
photographs of Osama bin La-
den in death sealed from public
view on Wednesday, declaring,
“We don’t need to spike the foot-
ball” intriumphafter this week’s
daring middle-of-the-night raid.
The terrorist leader was
killed by American commandos
who burst into his room and
feared he was reaching for a
nearby weapon, U.S. officials
said.
Several
weapons were
found in the
room where
the terror
chief died, in-
cluding AK-47
assault rifles
and side arms, the officials said.
They spoke on condition of ano-
nymity as they offered the most
recent in a series of increasingly
detailed and sometimes-shift-
ing accounts of bin Laden’s final
minutes after a decade on the
run.

SCRANTON – After a nearly
one-year lull in activity, federal
prosecutors on Wednesday filed
new charges in the Luzerne
County corruption probe, tag-
ging prominent area engineer
Michael J. Pasonickwithpayinga
bribe to a local school board
member.
Pasonick, 69, of Wilkes-Barre,
has agreed to plead guilty to pay-
ing more than $1,000 to the
school board member, who is not

U.S. Attorney’s Office.
The complaint says the bribe
was paid between January and

TIME FOR A CHANGE IN THE WEATHER
CLARK VAN ORDEN/THE TIMES LEADER
M
ay started out looking much like April with showers and storms, and people, like one of the walkers in Kirby Park on
Wednesday, deploying their umbrellas. Today might be the day to leave the umbrella at home, however. The National
Weather Service at Binghamton, N.Y., forecast a partly sunny day with highs around 60 degrees. Friday is supposed to be
partly sunny as well, but only in the morning. It’s expected to cloud up later with a 30 percent chance of showers.
WASHINGTON — So much
could have gone wrong for
SEALTeamSix in its mission to
confront Osama Bin Laden.
The vital things went right.
The administrationnowhas a
reconstruction that is probably
more accurate than its initial
telling. But there remains no
competing account.
The reconstruction about the
raid to get “Geronimo” comes
largely from CIA director Leon
Panetta, White House spokes-
man Jay Carney and President
Obama’s counterterrorism ad-
viser, John Brennan.
Theonlyother direct witness-
es are the compound’s occu-
pants, nowinPakistani custody.
Information gaps exist in the
official account. Among them:
how many armed defenders the
raiders encountered, who shot
at whom, why none of the com-
pound’s survivors was taken
away by the Americans, how
many commandos stormed bin

national attention, Republi-

Theregional tattoo, bodypierc-
ing and gaming community said
goodbyetooneof itsbusinesspio-
neers this week.
Frank“Franko”Kossa, of Sugar-
loaf Township, who just recently
became sole owner of Marc’s Tat-
tooing and Body Piercing shops
in Luzerne County, passed away
Monday due to
health compli-
cations. He was
45.
After grad-
uating from
Bishop Hoban
High School
and Luzerne
County Community College,
Franko became involved in trad-
ing cardandrole playing games.
He opened his first business,
The Game Studio, in Wilkes-
Barre, and after years of running
the business, his other love, side-
showacts, led himto become co-
founder of the Inkin’ the Valley
TattooConventionandfounderof
its SideShowGathering.
“While he did co-own Marc’s
Tattooing(inLuzerneCounty)he
wasn’t a tattoo artist. He was a
business man,” said Mat Dapkins
of Ashley, who worked as an ap-
prentice under Franko and Marc
Fairchild, the name behind the
business, at their Hazleton loca-
tion. “He’s a very business-savvy
person. I learned to always try to
smile and to be a good person
fromwhat he taught.”
And though he was business
oriented, he always brought a
sense of togetherness with
whomever he workedwith.
“He looked at us as a huge fam-
ily,” said Steve Gulbin of Drums,
who worked closely with Kossa
his whole professional career.
“I’ve been with him for about 13
years. He was the business end of
the shop -- the brains behind the
operation-- andheconstantlyhad
ideas. He always looked towards
getting people into the family.”
And by family, Gulbin means
the multiple tattoo shops in Lu-
zerne andLackawanna counties.
“Franko held us all to a higher
standard, and he was adamant
about that, about makingsure we
werethebest of thebest. Hetotal-
lywas akidat heart anddefinitely
cared very deeply for everyone
aroundhim. If youwerewithinhis
circle, he would do anything for
you.”
His old partner, Fairchild, re-
calledthestartof theirprofession-
al and personal relationship near-
ly two decades ago.
“FrankandI gobackalongway,
backtothebeginningof theInkin’
the Valley Tattoo Convention. It
was his brainchildandhebrought
me in on it,” said the now-retired
North Carolina resident. “We
thought of more stuff to do with
that, and helped each other out
over the years. Everything came
together pretty well.
“Hewill besorelymissed, that’s
for sure.”
Frank Kossa’s funeral will be at
4 p.m. Saturday from the Harold
C. Snowdon Funeral Home Inc.,
Shavertown.

Lawyer to speak at Wilkes
Attorney Robert Listenbee, an ad-
vocate for the rights and interests of
children in the juvenile justice sys-
tem, will deliver the spring 2011 com-
mencement address at Wilkes Uni-
versity.
The university’s 64th annual spring
commencement ceremony will be
held at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 21, at
Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza.
Listenbee, of Glen-
side, also will receive
an honorary degree,
the doctor of laws,
honoris causa. He
will be honored for
his distinguished
service to advance
the cause of juvenile
justice in Pennsylva-
nia.
In August 2009, Listenbee was
appointed to the Interbranch Com-
mission on Juvenile Justice, on which
he has examined the violation of the
constitutional rights of more than
6,000 children in the juvenile courts

‘Rally on the River’ set
A “Rally for Working Families” will
be held today from 6 to 7 p.m. -- rain
or shine -- at the River Common Am-
phitheater, Northampton Street por-
tal. Roxanne Pauline, of the NEPA
Area Labor Feder-
ation, said that since
January, community
groups have been
standing up across
the state telling their
elected leaders not to
balance the state
budget on the backs
of working families.
She said working people of the area
“will stand up and have their voices
heard on a plethora of concerns that
affect our local community.”
Pauline said the primary message
of the “Rally on the River” will be
from area teachers who will be on
hand to voice their concerns on
school funding and vouchers.
Organizers said that if Gov. Tom
Corbett’s budget is passed, it will
force school districts and local gov-
ernments to increase property taxes
and cut jobs, programs and services
in order to balance their budgets.

County woman honored
A Luzerne County woman was
among 11 Pennsylvanians honored
this week in Hershey during the Gov-

awards are jointly sponsored by state
workforce-development agencies –

Yvette Johnston was nominated by
EDSI Solutions Inc., for overcoming
hardships to turn her professional life
around.
After she lost her job due to a seri-
ous health concern that demanded
special attention, she entered the
EARN Program in 2010. She knew
that she had no other option since she
needed the assistance she received
from the county assistance office.
Johnston is now employed full-time
as a registered nurse at the Depart-

ation/PASNAP, the union representing
nurses at General Hospital, on Tuesday
voted by 88 percent majority to approve
a new collective-bargaining agreement
through April 30, 2013.
The union reached the deal with the
hospital Saturday night, hours before
nurses were set to walk out in a planned
24-hour strike.
Union representatives said their
greatest victory in negotiations was the
removal of a clause that would have al-
lowed CHS to change the terms of con-
tract without collective bargaining.
“If you do that, you don’t have a con-
tract, because it can change at any
time,” saidunionpresident andGeneral
Hospital nurse Fran Prusinski.
Prusinski said the clause was a seri-
ous concern for members that was only
taken off the table only at the 11th hour.
Under the new contract, union mem-
bers will also receive a 7.25 percent
across-the-board pay raise over two
years, though no retroactive raise pay-
ments will be made. A step-scale for
awarding raises based on years of ser-
vice was also kept, and pensions remain
intact, union representatives said.
Employee health insurance benefits
will change under the newcontract, but
insurance will continue to be provided
byBlueCross andBlueShield. CHSpro-
posed switching union employees to its

The same night nurses at Wilkes-Barre
General Hospital approved a new collec-
tive-bargaining agreement with hospital
operator Community Health Systems Inc.,
caregivers at the former Mercy Hospital
of Scranton, recently purchased by the
same company, approved their own
agreement with CHS.
Members of the Service Employees In-
ternational Union, which represents more
than 1,000 employees at the Regional
Hospital of Scranton, formerly Mercy
Hospital, on Tuesday ratified an interim
contract lasting through Aug. 31 by a 94
percent majority.
According to SEIU, the agreement keeps
intact most of the workers’ existing con-
tract while adopting new health care
coverage and retirement plans. A longer-
term agreement between the two parties
will be negotiated this summer.
Franklin, Tenn.-based CHS on Monday
finalized its $150 million purchase of the
assets of the former Mercy Health Part-
ners system, which includes hospitals
and clinics in Scranton, Nanticoke and
Tunkhannock.

witnesses, includ-
ing firefighter
Floyd Young, re-
ported seeing former Kingston
detective Daniel Griffin putting
up one of the signs, which ap-
pear to be homemade and read
“Haggerty No.”
Young on Tuesday confirmed
making that statement to Hag-
gerty, saying he saw Griffin
erecting one of the signs on the
shoulder of the Cross Valley Ex-
pressway last week.
Griffin de-
nied the accu-
sation.
“First of all,
it wasn’t me;
second of all, if
it was, you
have the right
to do it,” Grif-
fin said, add-
ing, “From calls I’ve been get-
ting, I think I am going to get
involved in it, because I think
again he’s trying to silence a vic-
tim, and that’s what I feel I am:
a victim of his administration.”
Haggerty on Wednesday
made the accusation on WILK
radio’s “Sue Henry Show,” in
which callers speculated that
the signs may have been erected
by opponents of the Home Rule
Charter passed by Luzerne
County voters in November.
Haggerty chaired the govern-
ment study commission that
drafted the charter.
“I thought it would be 100
percent unfair for the Charter
No people to get blamed for
what this corrupt cop did, and
that’s why I called the radio,”

WILKES-BARRE – Defense
attorneys attempting to secure a
newtrial for convicted murderer
Michael Bardo appeared in Lu-
zerne County Court on Wednes-
day, alleging lawyers who repre-
sented Bardo at his trial in 1993
“dropped the ball.”
Attorneys for Bardo, James
Moreno, Victor Abreu and David
Osborne, pre-
sented argu-
ments, as did
Deputy Attor-
ney General
Kelly Nelson, as
part of the last
phase of a Post-
Conviction Re-
lief Act hearing.
Senior Judge Patrick Toole
said he will allow attorneys to
file additional court papers to
supplement their arguments be-
fore he issues a ruling.
Bardo, 42, was convicted in Ja-
nuary 1993 of first-degree mur-
der and two counts of indecent
aggravated assault for molesting
and killing his niece, Joelle Do-
novan. Police said Bardo stuffed
the girl’s body into a garbage bag
and threwit into Solomon Creek
in South Wilkes-Barre.
Bardo was sentenced to death.
In January 2006, then-Gov. Ed
Rendell signed a death warrant
for Bardo after a nine-year peri-
od of inactivity in the case that
was the result of an oversight in
the county court system.
Later that month, Toole is-
sued a stay of execution for Bar-

Haggerty said.
Haggerty said he terminated
Griffin from the Kingston Police
Department in 2007 after Griffin
was charged with forging the
name of a former Kingston po-
lice chief to obtain reimburse-
ment for a shotgun he person-
ally purchased. A jury found him
guilty in September 2008 of one
count of criminal attempt of
theft by deception and one
count of forgery.
“I want people to know that
the Haggerty No signs are being
put up by a corrupt ex-Kingston
police officer; he’s not just some
average citizen who has a gripe
against some decision I’ve
made,” Haggerty said. “This
election is about reform and a
large part is about county cor-
ruption, and people want to
vote against corruption, and
what we have is a corrupt ex-
cop putting up signs against the
guy who found out and fired the
corrupt actor.”
Griffin denied that he was
fired by Haggerty, saying an ar-
biter recognized his retirement
prior to termination, allowing
him to keep his pension. He also
disputed Haggerty’s characteriz-
ing of him as “a thief,” stating
he was never convicted of theft.
“Everything to do with that
shotgun was things I was found
not guilty of,” Griffin said, add-
ing he believes he has been un-
fairly targeted by the borough
over workers’ compensation
claims he filed while on the
Kingston police force. He is cur-
rently involved in litigation with
the municipality over several is-
sues related to workers’ com-
pensation, unemployment com-
pensation and labor issues.
“They’ve gone out of their
way to basically punish me for
being injured on the job,” he
said.
Haggerty said it is within
Griffin’s rights to post the signs
but believes they should contain
a disclosure statement identify-
ing the person or group who
paid for them.
“Dan Griffin is entitled to his
opinion,” Haggerty said. “He’s
entitled to use all his time and
all his money to campaign
against me, but people should
know who is campaigning.”
Haggerty said he doesn’t plan
to file a complaint with the
county election bureau about
the signs.

own health policy, but the union
opposed the switch, saying the
policy contained hidden charges
and would be unaffordable for
nurses.
Union representatives said no
changes were made to vacation
days, which are awarded based
on years of service, and holidays,
and that nurses gained an addi-
tional personal day. Nurses typi-
cally received four personal days
to be used in a year starting in Ju-
ly. Under the newcontract, work-
ers will get nine personal days to
use in the next two years.
Prusinski said the union drop-
pedproposedlanguage regarding
staffingit sought toinclude inthe
contract, but said the union
would continue to fight for hospi-
tal policies mandating patient to
caregiver ratios.
“We want tomake sure we have
quality care and quality services,
and staffing ratios is one way to
ensure that,” Prusinski said.
Hourly rates of nurses were not
released.

to review records and prepare
an appeal.
Bardo waived his right to be
present at Wednesday’s hear-
ing.
Part of that appeal includes a
Post Conviction Relief Act
hearing held in November
2009, at which Bardo’s attor-
neys called a number of foren-
sic psychiatrists who said Bar-
do suffers fromat least six men-
tal health disorders and alcohol
dependency, which led him to
commit the heinous crime.
Moreno, Abreu and Osborne
argued in the past and on
Wednesday that Bardo’s attor-
neys at the time of his trial
were ineffective in that they
failed to present evidence that
Bardo suffered from the disor-
ders. The attorneys said
Wednesday that had the infor-
mation been disclosed to ju-
rors, Bardo might not have
been sentenced to death.
The attorneys said Bardo’s
alcohol dependency, personali-
ty disorder, post-traumatic
stress disorder, pedophilia and
a history of being sexually
abused himself, as well as pov-
erty and family dysfunction,
led to the death of Donovan.
Nelson previously argued,
and reiterated Wednesday, that
attorneys did not bring up is-
sues after Bardo’s trial until the
original PCRA hearing, that re-
cords defense attorneys want
to present are hearsay and no
one has been available to testi-
fy to them; and that Bardo
probably didn’t have enough
money to pay all the experts
defense counsel now say
should have testified at his
original trial.
Nelson also said a psychia-
trist who testified at the No-
vember 2009 PCRA hearing
said that at the time of Bardo’s
trial that the psychiatrist “may
be able” to assist counsel, not
that he actually could.
Nelson said she also won-
dered if Bardo’s original law-
yers were actually ineffective
or were just working with what
they had.

at the Wilkes-Barre Area Voca-
tional Technical School at that
time.
The school, nowcalled Wilkes-
Barre Area Career & Technical
Center, is under the authorityof a
joint operating committee that
consists of school board mem-
bers from several different dis-
tricts.
Meeting min-
utes for the Vo-
Tech’s Jan 22,
2007, board
meeting show
Pasonick was
namedas the ar-
chitect for the
project.
Three school
board members
who served on
the joint operat-
ing committee
on that date –
James Height
and Brian Dunn of Wilkes-Barre
Area, and Joseph Oliveri of Pitt-
ston Area – have previously
pleaded guilty to accepting kick-
backs from contractors who did
business with their individual
districts.
Pasonick’s firm was also in-
volved in several projects with
the Wilkes-Barre Area School
District at various times in 2007,
including a field house project at
the Solomon/Plains education
complex, the placement of mod-
ular units at Dodson Elementary
and replacement of the stadium
bleachers at Meyers HighSchool.
Anthony Lupas, solicitor for
the Vo-Tech, and Jeff Namey, su-
perintendent for Wilkes-Barre
Area, did not return phone mess-
ages seeking comment.
Heidi Havens, spokeswoman
for U.S. Attorney Peter J. Smith,
said the office would not com-
ment onthecharges beyondwhat
was included in the complaint fil-
ed against Pasonick.
Neither Pasonick nor his attor-
ney, Joseph Sklarosky Sr., return-
ed phone messages seeking com-
ment.
Pasonick is the 31st person to
be charged in connection with
the county corruption probe. His
arrest is the first since May 2010,
when local businessman Thom
Greco was chargedwithfailing to
report that he had been coerced
into buying television sets for a
bar owned by former Luzerne
County Commissioner Greg
Skrepenak’s father.
Pasonick’s engineering firm
has been employed by numerous
municipalities, school districts
and Luzerne County over the
years. He has been rumored to be
under investigation based on his
connections to former Luzerne
County Housing Authority mem-
bers Gerald Bonner and William
Maguire, who were both charged
as part of the county corruption
probe.
In October 2009, Bonner’s at-
torney, Michael Butera, identi-
fied Pasonick as the person who
paid $1,400 to Maguire – which
was passed through by Bonner –
as a reward for Maguire’s influen-
ce in hiring Pasonick for past and
future Housing Authority pro-
jects.
Bonner and Maguire each
pleaded guilty in 2009 to corrupt
receipt of a reward for official ac-
tion. Bonner was sentenced in
April 2010 to three months house
arrest and two years probation.
Maguire’s sentencing has been
repeatedly postponed as he con-
tinues to cooperate with author-
ities in the investigation of oth-
ers. Pasonick was not charged in
connection with that case.
Pasonicksignedtheplea agree-
ment on April 14, but it was not
publicly filed until Wednesday.
The agreement says the amount
of the bribe was more than$1,000
but less than $5,000. The maxi-
mum sentence is 10 years in pris-
on and a $250,000 fine, but prose-
cutors have agreed to seek a re-
duced sentence based on his
cooperation with authorities in
investigating others.
The sentencing recommenda-
tion is not binding on a judge. Pa-
sonick would not be allowed to
withdraw his plea if the judge re-
jects the recommendation. The
agreement also does not protect
Pasonick from any action that
might be taken against his engi-
neering license.

Michael J. Pasonick’s firm did business with the Wilkes-Barre Area School District and the former
Wilkes-Barre Area Vocational-Technical School during the time of the alleged bribe.
The maximum
sentence is 10
years in pris-
on and a
$250,000
fine, but pros-
ecutors have
agreed to
seek a re-
duced sen-
tence.
The amount of the exemp-
tion per property varies from
district to district. The district
divides the total it receives by
thenumber of eligibleproperty
owners, whichmeans the more
eligible properties there are,
the smaller the tax break an in-
dividual gets.
State data show neither the
total amount given to local dis-
tricts nor the number of eligi-
ble properties has changed
much from year to year since
2008-09.
Countywide, there are
87,229 properties for the ex-
emption this fall, 265 fewer
than 2008-09. The loss has oc-
curred entirely in Hazleton Ar-
ea School District, where there
are 537 fewer eligible proper-
ties now than there were in
2008-09.
All other county districts
have seen the number of eligi-
ble properties increase, with
the biggest jump – 215 – in
Crestwood.
That change meant a slight
dropinthe estimatedamount a
single property owner saves,
from $66 to $64. By contrast,
fewer eligible properties in Ha-
zleton Area has meant bigger
savings to those who do qual-
ify.

HAZLE TWP. – The Hazleton
Area School Board on Wednesday
explored ways to make necessary
cuts in the school district budget
due to Gov. Tom Corbett’s pro-
posed budget cuts.
The initial proposed cut of 5.5
percent across all departments,
suggested by board member Steve
Hahn, might actually be more in
the area of 3.5 percent.
“Some things can’t be changed
or cut; however, there are other ar-
eas within the district that can ab-
sorb the additional needed cuts be-
yond the proposed 5.5 percent to
3.5 percent, and we are looking it
over,” Business Manager Tony Ry-
ba said.
Superintendent Samuel A. Maro-
losuggestedtheboardmakeupthe
deficit in any way other than cut-
ting student programs.
“We must put the kids first,” he
said. Ryba proposedanother scena-
riothat wouldraiseadditional reve-
nue.
Under the Act I index, the dis-
trict can raise millage by 2 percent
over the 2010-2011 tax rates.
In this scenario, if the board
adopts it, Keystone Opportunity
Zone properties for which the tax
forgiveness program has expired
would pay the additional taxes in
Carbon, Luzerne and Schuylkill
counties.
The final determination of these
facts and figures will be revealed at
today’s school board meeting.

Fatah, Hamas heal rift
R
ival Palestinian factions Fatah and
Hamas on Wednesday proclaimed a
landmark reconciliation pact aimed at
ending their bitter four-year rift that has
left them with competing governments
in the territories envisioned for a future
Palestinian state, but Israel’s leader de-
nounced it as a “mortal blow to peace.”
The alliance set off ecstatic celebra-
tions in the Palestinian territories. In-
ternational mediator Tony Blair insisted
their new government must recognize
Israel.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Ab-
bas brushed off the criticism and instead
used the occasion to deliver a scathing
attack on Israel, saying “we reject black-
mail and it is no longer possible for us to
accept the (Israeli) occupation of Pal-
estinian land.”

Actor Jackie Cooper dies
Jackie Cooper, the former child movie
star who won a best actor Oscar nomi-
nation at the age of 9
for “Skippy” and grew
up to play The Daily
Planet editor in Chris-
topher Reeves’ four
“Superman” movies,
has died. He was 88.
Cooper died Tues-
day of old age at a
nursing facility in
Santa Monica, Calif., said his son, John
Cooper.
Cooper reigned with Shirley Temple
as one of the most popular child stars of
the 1930s. Starting in comedy shorts, he
rose to top ranks with “Skippy,” a senti-
mental adaptation of a popular comic
strip. He followed with such hits as “The
Champ,” “The Bowery,” “Treasure Is-
land” and “O’Shaughnessy’s Boy,” all
co-starring Wallace Beery.

Last WWI combat vet dies
Claude Stanley Choules, the last

died Thursday at a nursing home in the

“We all loved him,” his 84-year-old
daughter Daphne Edinger told The
Associated Press. “It’s going to be sad to
think of him not being here any longer,
but that’s the way things go.”
Beloved for his wry sense of humor
and humble nature, the British-born
Choules — nicknamed “Chuckles” by
his comrades in the Australian Navy —
never liked to fuss over his achieve-
ments, which included a 41-year military
career and the publication of his first
book at the age of 108.

Bill limits abortion tax beak
The House has approved a bill that
would limit tax breaks for insurance
policies that cover abortions.
The 251-177 vote Wednesday sent the
bill to the Democratic-led Senate. The
White House this week threatened to
veto it.
The legislation is the Republicans’
latest attempt to chip away at President
Barack Obama’s signature health care
overhaul. It would prevent people from
deducting the cost of an abortion from
their taxable income, except when the
procedure is performed in cases of rape,
incest or when the woman’s life is at risk.
Opponents of abortion rights say the
bill would close loopholes in the new
health law. Abortion rights supporters
say the bill is really about discouraging
insurance companies from covering the
procedure.

MISRATA, Libya — Moammar Gadhafi’s
forces showered the port area of this be-
sieged rebel city with rockets just minutes
after an international aid ship docked there
Wednesday, killing four people as part of the
regime’s increasingly bloody attempt to
choke off Misrata’s remaining lifeline.
The attack caused panic
among hundreds of strand-
ed migrant workers and
fleeing Libyans who were
trying to board the Red
Star One, a ferry chartered
by the International Orga-
nization for Migration. In
the chaos, some families
were separated and the
boat had to redock twice to sort it all out.
The timing of the shelling suggested Li-
byan forces were deliberately trying to dis-
rupt the evacuation. Othman Belbeisi, an
IOM official, said rockets started flying just
minutes after he and others first stepped off
the ferry. “The whole place was shaking and
people started running in different direc-
tions,” he said.
State Department spokesman Mark Toner
said the regime should cease hostilities in
Misrata port and allow the IOM to provide
relief to civilians caught in the fighting.
He said the U.S. was making available an
additional $6.5 million in assistance to IOM
to help evacuate people from Misrata and for
other operations in Libya.
On Tuesday, a senior Libyan official said
the army would do what is necessary to
block sea access to Misrata, already besieged
by land for the past two months. Last week,
Gadhafi’s troops were caught laying sea
mines. The Red Star One had waited at sea
for three days before risking the approach on
Wednesday, aided by a tug boat.
Since the uprising against Gadhafi broke
out in mid-February, the two sides have
largely been locked in a stalemate. The in-
ternational community’s bombing cam-
paign, launched in mid-March, has kept Gad-
hafi’s forces from advancing to the east, but
has failed to give the rebels a clear advan-
tage.
In Benghazi, rebel military spokesman
Col. Ahmed Bani depicted the bombing of
Misrata’s port as a crime against humanity.

PHILADELPHIA — Are you the “owner”
of a dog or cat? Maybe you should consider
yourself a “human caregiver” instead. And
Fido and Fluffy? Perhaps they should be
“companion animals,” not just “pets.”
Such vocabulary shifts will help elevate
the discourse about other species and, in
turn, improve our treatment of them, accord-
ing to the new Journal on Animal Ethics.
The foreword in the peer-reviewed aca-
demic publication, which was first published
last month, even suggests getting rid of
terms like “critters,”
“beasts” and “wild
animals,” along with
phrases such as
“drunk as a skunk”
and “eat like a pig.”
“We do need to ex-
amine our language
about animals be-
cause a lot of it is de-
rogatory in the sense
that it belittles them
andour relations with
them,” said journal
co-editor AndrewLin-
zey, a theologian.
It’s not surprising
that researchers are
re-examining their
language as animal
treatment becomes
more of a social issue,
saidJames Serpell, a professor of animal wel-
fare at the University of Pennsylvania’s
School of Veterinary Medicine.
But Serpell doesn’t necessarily agree with
the recommended terminology, which he
said could be taken to “absurd” extremes.
Journal co-editor Priscilla Cohn, a philoso-
phy professor emerita at Penn State-Abing-
ton near Philadelphia, noted the discussion
has implications for humans as well.
Cruelty to animals has been linked with
anti-social and abusive behavior in people,
she wrote in an e-mail, while overcrowding
animals on factory farms has repercussions

Pet? Companion

MEMPHIS, Tenn. —Floodworries
that promptedtheU.S. government to
blast open a Missouri levee to ease
pressure on some towns are rippling
downtheMississippi River, leadingto
more evacuations and unease as the
Army Corps of Engineers weighs
whether to pur-
posely inundate
more land.
People in eight
states along the
swollen Ohio and
Mississippi rivers
and their tributar-
ies were filling
sandbags and pack-
ing up to leave
home as high water
worksitswaydown-
stream in a slow-
motion disaster
that could take
weeks to unfold.
The breach of
southeastern Mis-
souri’s Birds Point levee was heralded
by some Illinois towns alongthe Ohio
River as a needed relief from record
flooding, and the man who ordered
that action says he may do the same
with other Mississippi River spill-
ways as flood prospects mount.
Maj. Gen. Michael Walsh said he
understoodthefarmers’ frustrationat
thecorps’ decisiontosacrificethelev-
ee Monday and send a wall of water
over130,000 acres of farmland. Alaw-
suit was filed to try to save the land,
but was unsuccessful.
“This was oneof therelief valves for
the system,” Walsh said. “We were
forced to use that valve.”
That calculation to draw down the
Mississippi and Ohio rivers in the na-
tion’s midsection appeared to do its
job. On Tuesday night, the Ohio at
Metropolis, Ill., measured about the
same level it had been at the time of
theblast. Without that breach, theriv-
er was forecast to have steadily crept
up to a crest of more than 58 feet.
In Cairo, the Ohio had dropped to
60 feet, about a foot and a half lower
than it was at the time of the breach.
Cairo, atownof about 2,800residents,
is at the confluence of the Ohio and
Mississippi rivers. Downstream of
Cairo — in southeast Missouri, Ken-
tucky, Arkansas, Tennessee, Missis-
sippi and Louisiana —concerns grew
as the Mississippi River continues to
rise.
About 3,800people have beenevac-
uated from three western Kentucky
cities as officials project rivers tocrest
Friday, and another bout of storms is
expectedfor theregionover theweek-
end.
Kentucky National Guard Sgt. Cor-
nell Marvin, a spokesmanfor the Ken-
tucky Division of Emergency Man-
agement, said most people have
sought shelter with family members.
Officials in Tennessee were con-
cerned that the breathing space pro-
vided by the levee break may only be
temporary, delaying when the flood-
waters crest, because the water that
was diverted is beginning to drain
back into the Mississippi.
Memphis, where the Mississippi
was at 43.8 feet Tuesday, could see a
near-record crest of 48 feet on May11,
just inches lower than the record of
48.7 feet in1937.

APISON, Tenn.— Au-
thorities say the South has
been plagued by a variety
of swindlers since the
twister outbreak last week
that ripped apart houses
and killed 329 people in
seven states. Looters have
carried off televisions,
power tools and prescrip-
tion pills.
Elsewhere, there are

tank of gas or jacking up
the cost of a hotel room.
Authorities also warn of
construction workers who
leave with the cash before
opening their tool kit and
the danger that identities
could be stolen off wind-
blown documents.
Though the region has
seen similar scams after
hurricanes and the Gulf oil
spill, the speed of flimflam
men this time around has
surprised authorities and
survivors.
“We have received a
surprising amount of
calls,” said Noel Barnes,
consumer protection chief
for the Alabama attorney
general’s office.
Some residents are
packing firearms to scare
off the lowlifes.
Police in several of the
states have charged people
with looting. Tuscaloosa’s
mayor on Wednesday
ordered five more days of
an 8 p.m. curfew to curb
about price gouging,
Barnes said. The com-
plaints include $2 bags of
ice being sold for $5, $400
generators being sold for
$1,600 on the side of the
road, hotels jacking up
their prices and unfair
gasoline prices. In Ten-
nessee, authorities were
investigating a complaint
that a service station was
charging $40 for $20
worth of gasoline.

SHICKSHINNY – Borough
council voted Tuesday night to
acquire and demolish a structure
at 21 E. Union St. that is in the
floodplain, although the action
did meet with some debate.
Councilman Kevin Morris de-
scribed the action as a “flood
buyout,” andwhilehesaidhewas
voting for the motion, “I have to
wonder about buying all these
houses. Pretty soon there won’t
be any houses left in Shickshin-
ny.”
In addition, council discussed
a property at Canal Street and
Susquehanna Avenue, which, it
was stated, the owner wants to
transfer to the borough.
Borough Secretary Melissa
Weber said she would find out
what the owner is seeking.
Council also voted unanimous-
ly to request that PennDOT un-
dertake a traffic study for the im-
position of a brake retardant ordi-
nance.
In other actions:
• Councilwoman Francene
Tearpock-Martini inquired if So-
licitor Jeff Malak had any com-
munication from the county dis-
trict attorney about a complaint
that Tearpock-Martini had filed.
Malak said he is not aware of any
correspondence fromthe DA’s of-
fice. Councilman James Wido
said that at issue is a sign at the
Bible Baptist Church about
which Tearpock-Martini has
raised legal objection.
• Council discussed borough
records being made available un-
der the state Right To KnowLaw.
Council President Rosalie White-
bread said she has been helping
with records research on her own
time and expense since the bor-
ough can’t pay for a person to as-
sist. She said she didn’t wish to
continue this practice. “Anyone
seeking to reviewthe records can
do so on their own.”
The records are readily availa-
ble at the borough building

EXETER – Borough council
onTuesdaynight heardfromresi-
dents frustrated by a lack of ac-
tion concerning constant flood-
ing issues related to the Hicks
Creek.
Council President Richard
Murawski tried to explain to the
large crowd the actions the bor-
ough has taken to deal with two
months of wet weather. He said
temporary pumps have
beenutilizedat the Exe-
ter pumping station to
pump water from the
creek into the river.
He said the creek is
prevented from flowing
into the river by the lev-
ee when the river reac-
hes 17 feet. Then the
creek water has to be pumped
over the levee to avoid major
flooding of large parts of the bor-
ough.
Murawski said the pump
house that used to force the wa-
ter over the county-owned levee
has not hadworkingpumps since
2006. He said the borough bor-
rows andrents pumps tosave the
town on its own.
However, he said, there isn’t
enough room to station pumps
largeenoughtostopall theflood-
ing. He said the borough is look-
ingat $300,000 to$500,000 tore-
place the nonfunctioning pumps
andpossibly upto$10 millionif a
new pump house were built.
Murawski said the county,
state and federal governments
have promised help for years.
However, theleveeimprovement
projects didnot address theprob-
lemandthe countyFloodProtec-
tionAuthority has not helpedthe
borough.
Solicitor Peter Moses said the
county borrowed some money
througha bondissue years agoto
helptheborough, but it has never
disbursed all the funds.
TomMartinof theHicks Creek
Watershed Association said the
state, while admitting that it ap-
proved developments in the past
that have added to the problem,
points to the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, which has not includ-
edthe Hicks Creekprobleminits
past projects.
Murawski said the
borough has gotten to
the point at which the
federal government
has told the borough
that anact of Congress
is required to stop the
flooding of homes in
Exeter.
Council members urged resi-
dents to write to their legislators
asking for help. Officials even
provided sample letters and ad-
dresses.
Murawski told residents that
Jim Brozena, the Luzerne Coun-
ty FloodProtectionAuthority ex-
ecutive director, was asked to at-
tend the meeting but he was un-
able to. He did send an e-mail ex-
plainingthelatest inalonglineof

WEST PITTSTON – Coun-
cil on Tuesday night approved
an ordinance banning the sale
and possession of bath salts
and synthetic drugs in the
borough.
Councilman Pete Musinski
urged council to begin prepar-
ing an ordinance at last
month’s meeting to specifical-
ly ban the drugs.
The rest of the council
meeting concerned the agen-
da and public comment on
the state of the borough’s
roads.
Many residents spoke up,
but specifically several neigh-
bors from Pacific Avenue at-
tended the meeting to focus
on issues with their road.
From potholes and poor park-
ing to large trucks passing
through, the neighbors said
they wanted council to con-
sider possible solutions to the
problems.
“This body can’t speak for
50 years ago, but we will ad-
dress it and look into it,” Mu-
sinski said. “It may be like the
sewer project and take two
years, but we will address it.”
Other questions about the
ongoing sewer project and
paving projects focused on
timelines, the selection of spe-
cific streets, dust, potholes,
broken lines and noise.

ROSS TWP. – Supervisors an-
nounced Tuesday that only a
handful of radio communication
units might have to be replaced
due to a Federal Communica-
tion Commission requirement.
Last month, supervisors dis-
cussed the need to see how
many of their radio communi-
cation units could be repro-
grammed and how many might
need to be replaced.
Chairman Stanford Davis said
the FCC issued a requirement
that all radio systems operate on
narrow-band frequencies versus
the wide-band frequencies. Uti-
lizing the narrow band, it would
create more frequencies for fu-
ture use.
Davis contacted Purosky and
Tuckerman, a two-way radio
dealer from Dickson City and
found out that most of their ra-
dio systems can be repro-
grammed to operate on the nar-
row band.
The township owns nine mo-
bile units and three portable ra-
dio communication units. To be
in accordance with the new FCC
regulation, Davis estimated the
township will have to replace
about four of them by October.
In other business, Davis an-
nounced a free electronics recy-
cling collection 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
June 11 at the Hanover Area Ju-
nior/Senior High School in Ha-
nover Township.

to “crack down on cities whose
elected officials have willfully
chosen not to enforce immigra-
tionpolicy by withholdingall fed-
eral funding fromthemas long as
their sanctuary policies are in
place.”
Saying that there are more
than 100 “sanctuary” cities na-
tionwide, Barletta added, “I want
to knowhowmuch they get from
the American taxpayer.”
Barletta noted at the news con-
ference that next month is the
fifth anniversary of the Illegal Im-
migration Relief Act ordinance
adopted by Hazleton in 2006
while Barletta was mayor.
The ordinance, whichhas been
ruled unconstitutional by a feder-
al district court and a federal ap-
peals court, sought to fine land-
lords who rented to illegal immi-
grants and penalize employers
whohiredillegal immigrants. Ha-
zleton was the first city in the
country to pass such a measure,
and Arizona later followed on a
statewide level.
Barletta said he still hopes the
U.S. Supreme Court will take up
the Hazleton law and uphold its
constitutionality.
He said he is tentatively titling
his federal legislation the “Mobi-
lizing Against Sanctuary Cities
Act.”
Research under way
He said he has asked the Con-
gressional Research Service to
compile a list of sanctuary cities
and estimate how much in feder-
al taxpayer dollars each receives.
Sanctuary cities is a term that
refers to places that, to varying
degrees, choose tonot focus their
lawenforcement efforts on track-
ing and arresting illegal immi-
grants or don’t turn over illegal
immigrants to federal authorities
based solely on their immigra-
tion status.
San Francisco, for instance,
adopted a policy in1989 that ille-
gal immigrants arrested on non-
felony charges would not be re-
portedto federal immigrationau-
thorities.
Immigration law overhaul ef-
forts have been stalled for several
years in Congress.
President Barack Obama said
recently that his administration
will try again to get Congress to
pass the DREAM Act, which
would create a pathway to citi-
zenship for the children of illegal
immigrants who were brought to
this country at a young age. That
proposal stalled last year in the
Senate.
Bob Dane, spokesman for the
Federation for American Immi-
gration Reform, or FAIR, which
favors stricter immigration poli-
cies, said Barletta’s proposal is a
“common sense” way to address
the issue of communities that
haveeither “don’t tell” policies in-
volving shielding illegal immi-
grants fromfederal authorities or
“don’t ask” policies involving not
demanding citizenship docu-
mentation.
“If politicians need financial
penalties tostopharboringillegal
aliens, then so be it,” Dane said.
Immigrant group reacts
But Grisella Martinez, director
of policy andlegislative affairs for
the National Immigration Fo-
rum, which calls itself an organi-
zationthat advocates onbehalf of
the value of immigrants and im-
migration to the United States,
saidthe term“sanctuary cities” is
a misnomer.
Martinez, who predicted Bar-
letta’s legislation will not go very
far in Congress this year, said
what many communities have in
place are “smart community pol-
icing policies.”
Such policies don’t harbor ille-
gal immigrants who commit
crimes, but, rather, involve not
demanding proof of immigration
status from crime victims or wit-
nesses, Martinez said.
“The policies we have seen
don’t shield foreign-born crimi-
nals fromarrest or prosecutionor
deportation,” Martinez said.
“What we are talking here (with
Barletta’s legislation) is interfer-
ingwithstate andlocalities tode-
termine the way that they should
be using their resources and the
way they should be protecting
their cities and fighting crime.
Smart community policing poli-
cies …help themget information
they need about their crime.”
Barletta said he and other city
and state officials who sought to
more strictly enforce federal im-
migration laws were sued by fed-
eral officials who spent taxpayer
dollars to do so and it’s only right
to take away taxpayer dollars –
for anything from federal hous-
ing grants to road and sewer re-
pairs –fromcities that choosenot
to enforce federal immigration
laws.
“Local elected officials who
choose to ignore enforcement of
fed immigration policies are aid-
ing and assisting illegal aliens,
and it is illegal to aid and abet
those who are in this country ille-
gally,” Barletta said at the news
conference. “They should not re-
ceive millions or even billions of
tax dollars as a reward.”
Barletta said he has not yet
identified co-sponsors for his bill
or which freshmen members will
join his immigration reform cau-
cus.

HAZLE TWP. – An 8-month-old boy
who authorities allege was violently shak-
en by the mother in February may never
fully heal, a physician testified during a
preliminary hearing on Wednesday.
Dr. John D. Van Brakle, chief of pediat-
rics at Lehigh Valley Hospital, said the in-
fant has limited if any brain activity and
requires a respirator to help him breathe.
A thorough examination of the child
showed previous injuries such as frac-
tured ribs, legs and arms that were in the
process of healing, Van Brakle said.
West Hazleton police and Luzerne
County detectives allege the boy, then 5
months old, was violently shaken on Feb.
3 by Andrea Vargas, 22, inside their resi-
dence on Tamarac Street.
Vargas initiallytoldinvestigators thein-
fant’s bruises and bone
fractures were caused
by her 1-year-old girl
tossing a metal toy car
into the crib and hitting
the baby. She allegedly
admitted to county De-
tective Lt. Gary Capita-
no that she violently
shook her baby when confronted with
other injuries found by Van Brakle.
After nearly two hours of testimony at
the preliminary hearing, District Judge
Thomas Sharkey determinedprosecutors
establisheda case against Vargas, sending
felony counts of aggravated assault and
child endangerment, and a misdemeanor
count of reckless endangerment to Lu-
zerne County Court.
“This is a very horrible assault that this
child was the victim of,” said Luzerne
County Assistant District Attorney Jar-
rett Ferentino, who is prosecuting the
case with Assistant District Attorney
Shannon Crake.
“The prognosis of this child is basically
at somepoint, thechildcanbreatheonhis
own. He can never live a normal life be-
cause of what his ownmother did,” Feren-
tino said, noting the infant is in an undis-
closed medical facility. “He is basically
living on a respirator.”
Capitano testified Vargas initially said
she was watching a NBAbasketball game
with the biological father, Jorge Robles,
on Feb. 3. During halftime, Vargas said,
her infant began crying and vomited.
Robles entered the roomand took hold
of the infant as Vargas went into a bath-
room. She alleged her infant stopped
breathing and Robles performed CPR as
Vargas called 911.
The boy was rushedtoHazletonGener-
al Hospital and flown to Lehigh Valley
Hospital.
Van Brakle said a tube had to be placed
down the infant’s throat to help him
breathe. The boy experienced seizures in
the first three days at Lehigh Valley Hos-
pital but the seizures stopped due to seri-
ous brain injuries, Van Brakle said.
Vargas remains jailed at the Luzerne
County Correctional Facility for lack of
$200,000 bail.

PHILADELPHIA– APhiladelphia
judge has ordered a Pocono area re-
sort to pay more than $2.2 million to
259sales persons he determinedhad
been improperly classified as inde-
pendent contractors instead of em-
ployees.
JudgeGaryGlazer ruledthat Vaca-
tion Charters LTD had improperly
classified employees who sold time
shares at the Split Rock Resort in
Lake Harmony, resulting in lost in-
come for those employees.
The case, filed by attorneys Mat-
thewKearney and Timothy Myers of
the LawfirmElliot Greenleaf inBlue
Bell, sought to recoup money for the
two lead plaintiffs, Albert White-
head and Austin Miller-Orteneau, as
well as 257 others who sold time
shares between June 2005 and De-
cember 2008.
The employees were paid as inde-
pendent contractors, which meant
they paid all their own federal in-
come taxes with no contribution
from Vacations Charters. They also
were not provided any benefits, such
as medical coverage.
Glazer determined that the inde-
pendent contractor agreement the
employees signed violated Pennsyl-
vania’s wage law. He ordered the re-
sort to pay a total of $2,248,491,
which includes damages and inter-
est. Whitehead will receive $11,879,
while Miller-Orteneau was entitled
to$3,874. The remainingmoneywill
be divided amongst the other 257
class members.
Kearney said the case is one of the
first in the nation where salesper-
sons have, at trial, successfully chal-
lenged the compensation structures
for persons whosell interests invaca-
tion and time share resorts such as
Split Rock.
Judge orders Split Rock
to pay sales people $2.2M
Employees who sold time shares

MOTHER’S DAY
CELEBRATION
WILKES-BARRE – For a guy
who made a career out of catch-
ing footballs, it was easy for Tim
Brown to get caught up in the
lifestyle of a rich professional
athlete.
As the featured speaker
Wednesday night for the eighth
annual Celebrity Dinner hosted
by the Volunteers of America,
Brown, a first-round draft pick in
1988 by the NFL’s Los Angeles
Raiders, spoke about how fame
and fortune sidetracked him for
a time andwhat returnedthe son
of a missionary to his Christian
upbringing.
The 1987 Heisman trophy
winner fromNotre Dame tookto
wearing a towel over his head
whileintheRaiders’ locker room
to block his view of the goings
on. Players were smoking and
drinking and cursing, he re-
called.
Eventually it wore off on him
and he lived the high life, going
out onthe townwithmovie stars
and other athletes, he recalled.
“It got to the point where I
couldn’t look at myself in the
mirror,” said Brown. In order to
do things like brush his teeth, he
found a way to avoid eye contact
with himself.
“I literally had to do that in the
dark,” he said.
At some point, he said, he real-
ized he was not acting like the
man he was raised to be and de-
cided to become that person,
knowing he would stand out
from his teammates.
Inthe two years it took for him
to transform he was tested by
other players, but he was com-
mitted, he said.
“I was determined to be the
man God wanted me to be,” said
Brown.
He earned the respect of his
teammates to the point they
played Christian rock in the
weight room and toned down
their coarse language.
By the time he reachedthe age
of 30, Brown said, he planned to
retire. However, something
changedhis mind. Whilepraying
one night, he said, he heard
these words: “Now it’s time for
you to serve.”
It took some time to realize
what it meant, he added. He was
to serve the men in the locker
room, he said, and stayed on an-
other eight years.
To this day he meets players
who still call him captain from
when he was team captain, he
said.
Brown complimented his
host, the Volunteers of America,
for its faith-based programs that
deal with youth, the homeless
and efforts to bring people out of
poverty. The former football star
assists non-profits with fundrais-
ing.
He also had some fun with the
Penn State fans who attended.
“How many Notre Dame fans
do we have here?” he asked the
crowd of several hundred in a
banquet roomat the Genetti Ho-
tel & Conference Center. “Can
somebody explain to me how I
endeduphavinga PennState fan
pick me up?”
He might have earned the re-
spect of some Penn State fans
when he spoke of the school’s
football coach, Joe Paterno.
“I like Joe Pa,” Brown admit-
ted.
The coach had high regards
for Brown too, he said. Paterno
approached himafter a game be-
tween the schools, rubbed
Brown’s head and said, “Timmy,
you should have been at Penn
State.”
Brown tells of return to upbringing

Magistrate candidate
feels he’s best-qualified
A
s I’ve been going door to door meeting
voters, I’ve found that people are con-
cerned about the integrity of elected
officials. In our discussions, the people I
meet agree: The best way to improve the
integrity of our city and the quality of life
in our community is to ensure the most
qualified, experienced people are put into
office.
For the position of magisterial district
judge in Wilkes-Barre’s 11-1-01, I am that
person.
Besides being an attorney with 15 years
experience, including five years as a prose-
cutor in the Luzerne County District At-
torney’s Office, I am also the only candi-
date who has experience doing everything
the magisterial district judge does.
On the civil side, I have experience con-
ducting civil hearings and rendering deci-
sions on arbitration panels and as a Medi-
care hearing officer. I am also the only
candidate with felony jury trial experience
and experience doing felony preliminary
hearings in criminal court as both a prose-
cutor and defense attorney.
Most important, I have worked for sever-
al years in the 11-1-01 Magisterial District
Court, appearing on behalf of the district
attorney’s office, the public defender’s
office and my private practice. I have far
more experience than any other candidate
with the types of cases that come before
this court and with the day-to-day oper-
ations of this courtroom. I also have a clear
understanding of the law, to be able to
make the correct legal judgments.
This is especially important in Wilkes-
Barre’s Magisterial District 11-1-01 because
it has the second-highest caseload in Lu-
zerne County. The person who takes over
this position must hit the ground running.
This is a legal position that should be filled
by someone with knowledge of the law.
Wilkes-Barre residents deserve the best-
qualified, most experienced candidate they
can get.
I want to put my experience and qual-
ifications to work for Wilkes-Barre. I humb-
ly ask for your vote on Tuesday, May 17.

Progress will continue
if Leighton is re-elected
A
recent writer concluded that she is
not satisfied with Mayor Tom Leight-
on’s efforts and leadership. We wonder
if that person would be satisfied with any-
thing.
Wilkes-Barre is indeed a “great city” and
it is getting better day by day, this under
the leadership of Mayor Leighton. Look
back only nine years and remember what it
was like. Then, with open eyes, look at the
progress we have made under Leighton’s
leadership. Unprecedented!
Any rational person knows it begins in
the downtown, and Mayor Leighton’s
leadership is evident everywhere down-
town.
Let’s not forget that Mayor Leighton also
has improved recreation facilities through-
out the city, gone into neighborhoods to
tear down abandoned buildings and in-
stitute new home building, paved many
roads and repaired many catch basins,
showed leadership in public safety by
hiring more police officers and authorizing
more neighborhood patrols, and stream-
lined city government. Leighton did and
will continue all this with a significantly
smaller city staff than in the past.
Sure, Wilkes-Barre still has problems, as
do all nearby communities. But by re-
electing Tom Leighton as mayor we will
see a better Wilkes-Barre and continued
progress.

Writer believes Dobash
will work well on council
I
met Kathy Dobash through a good
friend. I wanted my daughter to take art
lessons because she likes to draw. So
Kathy comes to my home every week and
teaches art to three children. She is show-
ing the children’s work at the Hazleton
library during May.
Kathy is a great person to know; she
works well with everyone!
She is a candidate for Luzerne County
Council. I believe she is serious about her
concern for the children of this county.
Her understanding and compassion will
be required to ask the important questions
to safeguard tax dollars. She will work to
keep funds directed to their intended pur-
pose without wasteful spending. I also
believe she will consistently ask questions
and work with other elected council mem-
bers to provide accountability to the tax-
payers.
Elect Kathy Dobash for Luzerne County
Council.

backed in run for mayor
I
support Abe Belles for mayor of Wilkes-
Barre Township.
You might say his age is a factor. But
with good people around him, and his
honesty and sincerity, it’s a plus.
Abe Belles cares about the future of
Wilkes-Barre Township and its young
residents. Abe might not win, but he cares
enough to try. At least he doesn’t have
cronies around him.
Wilkes-Barre Township needs real, pro-
gressive leadership and down-to-earth
ideas.

School voucher bill
a drain on taxpayers
A
report released by Pennsylvania’s
Education Law Center shows that the
school voucher bill (SB1) currently
before the Legislature in Harrisburg would
cost the state’s taxpayers more than $1
billion in its first four years.
It also shows that less than 8 percent of
the funds would go to kids from the
“worst” 144 schools in the state, while
two-thirds of the money would go to stu-
dents already enrolled in religious and
other private schools.
Let’s face it: The school voucher bill
would drain public funds away from the
public schools that exist to serve all kids,
and because the vast majority of the pri-
vate schools that would benefit from this
bill are religious, the bill would violate the
state constitution.
State lawmakers need to remember
what Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin
wrote more than 200 years ago: “When a
religion is good, I conceive it will support
itself; and when it does not support itself,
and God does not care to support it, so
that its professors (adherents) are obliged
to call for the help of the civil power (gov-
ernment), ’tis a sign, I apprehend, of its
being a bad one.”

IVE WILKES-BARRE Mayor
Tom Leighton a few minutes
and he’ll take an hour – not be-
cause he’s long-winded, but because he
has two terms of accomplishments un-
der his belt that even his opponents ac-
knowledge: A revitalized downtown
with a net gain of 53 newbusinesses, a
multiplex movie theater, a city credit
rating restored fromabysmal to stable,
new downtown streetlights and side-
walks, revamped facilities at Coal
Street Park …
And on and on. It’s a tough record to rival, and it’s the reason
The Times Leader endorsement panel unanimously picked
Leighton as the preferred candidate in the May 17 Democratic
primary.
Leighton’s political opponents in this race – fromboth parties –
argue he has focused on downtown at the expense of city “neigh-
borhoods.” The incumbent counters that 1) he was initially elect-
edto revive a dying downtown, 2) downtownprovides the largest
single infusion of tax dollars to city coffers, benefiting all resi-
dents, and3) he has steeredmillions of dollars into neighborhood
improvements such as paving roads and repairing bridges and
sewers.
To those people who say Leighton has let crime fester, he touts
a net increase of 29 new police officers during his tenure.
The incumbent has flaws. Allegations of sweetheart deals in-
volving city transactions continue to dog himdespite his denials,
a problem easily corrected with more rigorous transparency. His
answers to our endorsement panel’s questions regarding police
management made him sound almost too detached from that vi-
tal component of public safety.
And disagreements with Crime Watch participants over the
city’s lack of a police department liaison dedicated to the group –
resolved only recently, after popular Crime Watch leader Char-
lotteRaupdecidedtorunagainst Leighton–always seemedcoun-
terproductive.
Perhaps most important, this endorsement does not diminish
the concern for neighborhood improvements reverberating
throughout the city – concerns strong enough to push five people
into the race to unseat Leighton, 50. He ignores those concerns at
his ownpolitical peril. But webelievehis recordmakes himaclear
choice to lead this city of about 42,000 for the next four years.
In November, the winner of the Democratic nomination will
face one of three Republican contenders: Karen Ceppa, Lisa Cope
or Frank Sorick. The mayoral post pays about $80,000 per year.

YVIRTUEOFher personal commitment to
the city’s Crime Watch network – 16 years
patrolling streets without compensation –
Charlotte Raup brings a newdynamic to the may-
oral race.
“I’m ready for this,” the 54-year-old said soon
after announcing her decision to run. “This is ve-
ry personal for me.”
If elected, Raup promises to cut the mayor’s
yearly salary by $20,000 and to work with community and busi-
ness groups. She wants to eliminate city council members’ health
care benefits, crack down on absentee or negligent landlords, and
look to similar-sized cities for successful ways to improve Wilkes-
Barre.
Raup might lack the experience and managerial expertise of in-
cumbent TomLeighton, but fewpeoplewouldquestionher sincer-
ity and drive. Or her loyal following within the city.
Nick Punko, in contrast, has redefined “low profile” in his run
for the Democratic nomination for mayor. He has declined to be
photographed, declined interviews and did not respond to repeat-
edmessages invitinghimtomeet withTheTimes Leader endorse-
ment panel.
Inone brief conversationwitha reporter, Punko, 54, saidhe was
a truck driver fed up with the city’s shoddy streets, and that he
wanted to see the focus shift from downtown to the neighbor-
hoods. He alsosaidhe ranfor mayor because some friends “put me
up to it.”

WASHINGTON — An al-Qai-
da suspect who was subjected to
harshinterrogationtechniques at
a secret CIA prison in early 2004
provided his interrogators with a
clue — the nom de guerre of a
mysterious courier — that ulti-
mately proved crucial to finding
and killing Osama bin Laden, of-
ficials said Wednesday.
The CIA had approved use of
sleep deprivation, slapping, nud-
ity, water dousing and other co-
ercive techniques at the now-
closed CIA “black site” in Poland
where the Pakistani-born detai-
nee, Hassan Ghul, was held, ac-
cording to a 2005 Justice Depart-
ment memo, whichcitedGhul by
name. Two U.S. officials said
Wednesday that some of those
now-prohibited
practices were
directed at
Ghul.
Ghul was not
water boarded,
or subject to
near-drowning,
the most noto-
rious interroga-
tion technique
and one that
critics describe
as torture.
Two other
CIA prisoners
— al-Qaida’s
operations
chief Khalid
Sheikh Mo-
hammed, and
his successor,
Abu Faraj al-
Libbi — gave
their interrogators false informa-
tion about the courier after they
were water boarded repeatedly,
U.S. officials said.
Those lies also played a role in
the decade-long manhunt, how-
ever.
In the end, intelligence gained
from interviews with numerous
detainees, high-tech eavesdrop-
ping and surveillance, and other
investigative spadework provid-
ed insights into people who were
close to bin Laden.
The nuances of that complex
chain of events were often lost
Wednesday amid a renewed pub-
lic debate about the efficacy and
morality of coercive interroga-
tions that the CIAcarried out un-
der President George W. Bush.
“I think the issue has been mis-
characterized on both sides,”
said a former CIA official who
was involved in internal debate
over the so-called “enhanced in-
terrogation techniques” program
at the time. “The people who say
‘enhanced interrogation tech-
niques’ directly led to catching
bin Laden are wrong, and the
people who say they had nothing
to do with it are also wrong.”
The current CIAdirector, Leon
Panetta, said it was impossible to
know if the same information
could have been gleaned without
using those techniques, which
have been banned under Presi-
dent Barack Obama.

SAN FRANCISCO — The im-
ages are bloody, grotesque and
convincing: Osama bin Laden
lies dead, the left side of his head
blasted away.
Unverified photos purporting
to show bin Laden’s corpse rock-
eted around the world on televi-
sion, online via social media and
in print almost as soon as his
death was announced.
The pictures have spreadwith-
out regard for their origin or
whether the images are real.
Newsrooms and the public
havebeenleft inthetoughspot of
deciding what to believe when
software has made doctoring
photographs easier than ever.
And the hunger for visual evi-
dence of bin Laden’s death may
onlygrownowthat President Ba-
rack Obama has said the govern-
ment’s photos will remain classi-
fied.
“I don’t think society tolerates
the invisible anymore,” said Fred
Ritchin, a professor of photogra-
phy at New York University who
has writtenabout digital technol-
ogy undermining trust in the ve-
racity of photographs. “Every-
thing has to be imaged.”
Inperhapsthemost widelydis-
tributedphoto, abloodiedbinLa-
denappears tobe missinghis left
eye, and he is grimacing as if he
died in pain. The White House
says bin Laden was shot above
his left eye.
Reuters reported on its pho-
tography blog that the mouth,
ear and beard in the picture ex-
actly matched a photo the news
agencyhadsnappedof binLaden
at anews conferencein1998. The
upper half of the face appears to
be froma different corpse.
Another photo released on the
website liveleak.com shows bin
Laden lying on his back with a
wound over one eye as a soldier
with an American flag insignia
on his shoulder stands over the
body. The photo is in green and
black, as if taken with a night vi-
sion lens.
The website has since retract-
edthephoto, whichliveleak.com
indicatedwas made witha photo
of binLadendigitally stitchedin-
to a still from the 2001 movie
“Black Hawk Down.”
Another picture, by far the
most gruesome, shows an ex-
tremely bloody face that resem-
bles bin Laden with most of the
skull missing and brain visible.
The spread of fake photos and
the ease of making them has
forced news organizations to be
more vigilant than ever.
“The challenge here is these
techniques are quite sophisticat-
ed,” said Santiago Lyon, director
of photography for The Associat-
ed Press. “A good Photoshop
forger ... canmakeit verydifficult
at first glance to detect whether
an image has been manipulated
or not.”
Experiencedphotoeditors can
often spot telltale inconsisten-
cies such as shifts in color, con-
trast or light source that signal a
fake, Lyon said.
For the most newsworthy pho-
tos that also raise suspicions, the
AP has access to software that
can analyze photos down to the
level of the pixel, the basic build-
ing block of all digital images.
At least as important as the im-
ageitself is vettingthecredibility
of its source, Lyon said.
The AP did not escape from
the lightning spread of doctored
photos. The news service pulled
fromitswiresatotal of sixphotos
that included apparently doc-
tored images of bin Laden’s
corpse the AP could not verify.

are” as a country. Though some
may deny his death, “the fact of
the matter is you will not see bin
Laden walking this earth again,”
thepresident saidinaninterview
taped for CBS’ “60 Minutes.”
He said any release of the pho-
tos could become a propaganda
tool for binLaden’s adherents ea-
ger to incite violence.
White House press secretary
Jay Carney said the president’s
decision applied to photographs
of bin Laden, said to show a por-
tion of his skull blown away from
a gunshot wound to the area of
his left eye, as well as to a video
recording of his burial several
hours later in the North Arabian
Sea.
The president made no public
remarks duringthedayabout the
raid, apart from the taped inter-
view. But he arranged a visit for
today to ground zero in Manhat-
tan, where the World Trade Cen-
ter twin towers once stood.
After two days of shifting ac-
counts of the dramatic raid, Car-
ney said he would no longer pro-
vide details of the 40-minute op-
eration by the teamof elite Navy
SEALs. That left unresolved nu-
merous mysteries, prominent
among them an exact account-
ing of bin Laden’s demise. Offi-
cials have said he was unarmed
but resisted when an unknown
number of commandos burst in-
to his roominside the high-secu-
rity compound.
The officials who gave the lat-
est details said a U.S. commando
grabbed a woman who charged
toward the SEALs inside the
room. They said the raiders were
concerned that she might be
wearing a suicide vest.
Administration officials have
said bin Laden’s body was identi-
fied by several means, including
a DNA test. Members of Con-
gress who received a briefing
during the day said a sample
from the body killed at the com-
poundinPakistanwas compared
to known DNA from bin Laden’s
mother and three sons.
After two days of speculation
about releasingthephotographs,
there was no detectable public
debate in the U.S. about the mer-
its of the raid itself against the
man behind the terror attacks
that killed nearly 3,000 Ameri-
cans on Sept. 11, 2001.
Attorney General Eric Holder
told Congress the operation was
“entirely lawful and consistent
with our values” and justified as
"an action of national self-de-
fense.” Noting that bin Laden
had admitted his involvement in
theevents of nearlyadecadeago,
he said, “It’s lawful to target an
enemy commander in the field.”
Holder also said the teamthat
carried out the raid had been
trained to take bin Laden alive if
he was willing to surrender. “It
was a kill-or-capturemission,” he
said. “He made no attempt to
surrender.”
Bin Laden had evaded capture
for nearly a decade, and officials
said he had currency as well as
two telephone numbers sewn in-
to his clothing when he was
killed, suggesting he was pre-
pared to leave his surroundings
onamoment’s noticeif hesensed
danger.
Administration officials said
the twodozenSEALs involvedin
the operation were back at their
home base outside Virginia
Beach, Va., and the extensive de-
briefing they underwent was
complete. Saluted as heroes na-
tionwide, they remained publi-
cly unidentified because of secu-
rity concerns.
In addition to bin Laden’s
body, the SEALs helicoptered
out of the compound with com-
puter files, flash drives, DVDs
and documents that intelligence
officials have begun analyzing in
hopes the information will help
themdegrade or destroy the net-
work bin Laden left behind.
In New York today, Carney
said, Obama will lay a wreath at
the World Trade Center site and
hold a private meeting with rela-
tives of some of the victims.

The town’s residents were still confused and suspicious on Wednesday about bin Laden’s killing.
Laden’s room and which commando, or
two, killed bin Laden.
Tosome ingovernment andintelligence
circles, the operationbore the hallmarks of
a pure kill mission despite officials’ state-
ments that “Geronimo” would have been
taken alive if he had surrendered.
Obama gives the green light
Latelast week, Panettagot thewordthat
Obama was giving the green light for the
raid. Other options, including the idea of
“just blowingtheplaceup” fromaB-2bom-
ber, had been discarded, he said.
Obama directed Panetta to proceed un-
der Title 50, meaning this would be a cov-
ert operation.
Operational control fell toAdm. William
McRaven, head of the Joint Special Forces
Command, who is stationed in Afghanis-
tan. Panetta said: “My instructions to Ad-
miral McRaven were, ‘Admiral, go in and
get binLaden. Andif he’s not there, get the
hell out.’ ”
TeamSix was ready.
Its 25 members had rehearsed the as-
sault many times — two or three times a
night in Afghanistan, Panetta said. The
U.S. had a strong sense for at least several
months that bin Laden might be at the
compound, which Americans had been
monitoring for months longer than that.
Intelligence officials watched so closely
that theysawafamily’s clothes onthethird
floor balcony and, at one point, a man re-
sembling bin Laden out in the courtyard,
Panetta said. They surmised bin Laden
and his “hidden family” lived on the sec-
ond and third floors, because his trusted
courier —who had unwittingly drawn the
U.S. to this unlikely hideout — occupied
the first floor, with his brother in a gues-
thouse.
Whentwo helicopters carrying the com-
mandos crossedover intoPakistan, the op-
eration invited its first risk. Pakistani au-
thorities, kept in the dark about the U.S.
mission, might engage the choppers.
But the strong Pakistani military pres-
ence in Abbottabad, with a military acade-
my near the compound, provided a cover
for the Americans. No one would be sur-
prised to hear choppers flying at night.
Reaching their target, the raiders sud-
denly had to improvise.
Their plan to place a rappelling teamon
the roof with a second teamdropping into
the courtyard was jettisoned when one of
thehelicopters hadtoput downhard. Both
choppers landed in the courtyard, behind
one ring of walls with more to go.
.
Gunfire erupted, as the commandos
surely had expected and might have start-
ed. But the compound was populated with
morethantwodozenchildrenandwomen,
accordingtotheU.S. Theraiders facedlife-
and-death calls about who was lethal and
whowas just intheir way. TheSEALs went
in with the assumption that some of those
they encountered might be wearing explo-
sive suicide vests.
A violent melee was going on, key de-
tails still largely a mystery.
The raiders trying to get into the house
breached three or four walls, Panetta said,
not specifying whether they scaled them
or blewholes. Onthe first floor, the SEALs
killed the courier and his brother, and the
courier’s wife died in crossfire. They shot
open some doors.
They then swept upstairs and burst into
a third floor room, entering one at a time,
saidCarney. Thereall theU.S. intelligence,
the surmising and the guesswork paid off.
Bin Laden’s wife charged at the SEALs,
crying her husband’s name at one point.
They shot her in the calf. Officials said one
SEALgrabbedawoman, fearingshemight
be wearing a suicide vest, and pulled her
away fromhis team. Whether that was bin
Laden’s wife has not been confirmed. Also
in the roomwere bin Laden and a son.
The first bullet struck bin Laden in the
chest. Thesecondstruckabovehis left eye,
blowing away part of his skull.
It is not confirmed whether the shots
came from one commando, two or in a
spray of gunfire. The son was shot dead in
that room, too.
The raiders’ work was not done.
They quickly swept the compound, re-
trieving possibly crucial records on the op-
erations of al-Qaida.
They destroyed the chopper that gave
them trouble. This renewed worries that
Pakistani authorities would discover the
mission prematurely. Neighbors certainly
noticed. “We had to blow the helicopter,”
Panetta said, “andthat probably woke up a
lot of people, including the Pakistanis.”
Thenon-combatants, their hands bound
withplasticties, wereleft for Pakistani offi-
cials to round up.
The raiders boarded the remaining
Black Hawk and flew off to the USS Carl
Vinson in the North Arabian Sea, bin La-
den’s body with them.
Only then was Pakistan informed of
what had happened in its land.
Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mul-
len called Pakistani Army chief Ashfaq
Kayani to tell himthat anoperationhe had
not known about was complete, a U.S. offi-
cial said. Panetta calledhis Pakistani coun-
terpart shortly afterward.
Mere hours after the operation, before
most of the world knew bin Laden was
killed, his body was buried at sea.

THE TIMES LEADER THURSDAY, MAY 5, 2011

I
t started with a thicket of tangled of
legs.
It ended with a stumbling colli-
sion.
And it nearly made the Tunkhannock
Tigers sick.
Because the guy who makes them go
wasn’t moving.
It turned out Mike Papi merely
bruised his shoulder while taking a
tumble on his fifth-inning groundout
against Holy Redeemer on Tuesday.
But the sight of their star leaving the
game gave the Tigers reason to trem-
ble.
“I mean, everyone’s hearts went into
their throats,” said Tunkhannock pitch-
er/first baseman Rich Condeelis. “He
(Papi) is a tough kid. To see him down
and out for awhile, that was a little bit
scary to everybody.”
Papi – who’s expected to return in
time for today’s game against Wyoming
Area – wasn’t as much frightened as he
was perturbed, because the last time he
didn’t finish a game he started was …
“Never,” Papi said.
But there he was on the bench at for
the final 2½ innings Tuesday, forced to
watch this time rather than help the
Tigers hang onto a heart-pounding 10-9
victory.
All because Papi, who’s so smooth
and talented he’s headed to Virginia to
play on a college baseball scholarship
next season, finally got a pitch to hit.
He doesn’t get many, as the No. 3
hitter in Tunkhannock’s lineup has as
many walks as official at-bats on the
season. That’s just fine with Tigers
cleanup man Mike Healey, who has
slugged five homers this year and leads
the Wyoming Valley Conference with
25 RBI in 10 games.
“My teammates behind me are defi-
nitely capitalizing on the option I’m
leaving them,” Papi said.
Take him out of Tunkhannock’s li-
neup, and some of those options come
crashing down.
That’s what happened in the top of
the fifth inning against Holy Redeemer.
Papi had already drawn two more
walks to add to a season full of them,
smacked a homer, then got tangled up
while trying to beat the first baseman
to the bag on a grounder.
Papi came down hard on his shoul-
der, which is why he went to the bench
instead of finishing the game as an ace
relief pitcher.
“I was coming to the base,” Papi
said. “I think he (the first baseman)
slid feet-first into the base.”
The rest of the Tigers seemed to lose
their footing along with him.
They didn’t score another run, or
manage another hit, after Papi left.
The Tigers disagree they were too
shaken to get back in the swing of
things.
“I’d look at it like you’re trying to win
the game for him,” Condeelis said.
But winning without him makes it
tougher on the Tigers, especially after
watching Papi stay on the ground for a
good while.
“That’s frightening,” Tunkhannock
coach Gary Custer said. “We don’t
want to see that guy get hurt. It was a
clean play. That’s the way it works.”
It works this way in baseball, wheth-
er you are at the top of your game or
struggling. With little rhyme or reason,
things can change in an instant, and
fortunes can change for anyone.
“Most definitely,” said Custer, a good
baseball man. “It could be one pitch,
anything can happen. Play the game
hard, play the game the right way, and
things like that are more likely to hap-
pen.”
That is something baseball players
can’t consider, because playing with
fear can put them in a paralyzing funk.
But the opportunity for injury is always
there, in every game, through every
inning, with every pitch. Even for big-
name players as skilled as Mike Papi.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Dialed In
was made the early 4-1 favorite
for the Kentucky Derby after
drawing the favorable No. 8 post,
with Uncle Mo as the second
choice in a full field of 20 horses.
Trained by two-time Derby
winner Nick Zito, Dialed In has
won three of
four career
races. Owner
Robert La-
Penta let out
a cheer when
the post was
drawn on
Wednesday.
“It’s a big thing, and he de-
serves it,” Zito said, referring to
his horse’s status as the favorite.
Three times in the last seven
runnings the favorite has worn
the garland of roses, most recent-
ly Big Brown in 2008.
“So far, so good,” Zito said. “If
he has another couple of good
days we’ll be happy. Things are
doing all right.”
Things haven’t been going so
well for Uncle Mo, who drew the
No. 18 post, three slots from the
outside. The colt is being treated
for a gastrointestinal infection,
which was blamed for his stun-
ning first-ever defeat in last
month’s Wood Memorial.
Owner Mike Repole has said if
Uncle Mo isn’t sufficiently reco-
vered, then he won’t run in Sat-
urday’s 1
1
⁄4-mile Derby. However,
trainer Todd Pletcher said Uncle
Mo might be able to win even if
he’s at less than his best.
“But we’re committed to bring-
ing himover there at 100 percent,
anything less than that, we won’t
accept,” he said.
Uncle Mo, who was last year’s
2-year-old champion, jogged a
mile around the dirt track at
Churchill Downs on Wednesday
and later stood in the starting
gate to familiarize himself with
the surroundings. He is sched-
uled to gallop on Thursday.
“I’ve always saidI thinkhe’s the
best horse of his generation,”
Pletcher said. “We proved that

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Wilkes-

everything right offensively during
Wednesday’s Game 4 matchup against
the Charlotte Checkers.
Theyspent tons of time inthe offensive
zone and created chances fromjust about
every spot. They even peppered Char-
lotte goaltender Mike Murphy with 44
shots.
Unfortunately for the Penguins, he
saved themall as the Checkers won1-0 to
take a 3-1 series lead in the East Division
finals with Game 5 this Friday in Char-
lotte.
While Murphy did make several great
saves throughout the game to preserve
the shutout, it was the stop made by the
officials that kept the Penguins off the
board midway through the first period.
That’s when Brett Sterling fired a shot
from in close on Murphy that the Char-
lotte goaltender thought he had covered.
But the puck slid underneath Murphy
and laid in the paint when Ryan Craig
swooped in to slam it into the net.
The officials waived off the goal, how-
ever, citing incidental contact with the
goaltender before Craig shot it in.
Penguins coach John Hynes said there
wasn’t any contact with Murphy.

DETROIT — Max Scherzer
pitched eight scoreless innings,
and Magglio Ordonez homered
for the first time this season to
lead the Detroit Tigers to a 4-0
win over the New York Yan-
kees on Wednesday night.
Ordonez has been in a hor-
rendous slump to start the
year, but he had two hits
Wednesday, including a two-
run homer in the third that
gave the Tigers a four-run lead.
Detroit has won its last two
since a seven-game losing
streak.
Scherzer (5-0) allowed four
hits and two walks. He struck
out nine.
Freddy Garcia (1-2) pitched
seven-plus innings for the Yan-
kees, allowing four runs on 10
hits. He walked two and struck
out eight.
Scherzer allowed a leadoff
single to Derek Jeter in the
first, then retired 10 straight
hitters, striking out four in a
row at one point. Detroit
opened the scoring with a run
in the second when Victor
Martinez, Ordonez and Jhonny
Peralta hit consecutive singles.
Martinez was activated
Wednesday from the disabled
list after being out with a
strained right groin.
Twins 3, White Sox 2
CHICAGO — Nick Black-
burn earned his first win in a
month, Jason Kubel had two
RBIs and Minnesota beat Chi-
cago to sweep a two-game
series.

Tuesday night 1-0 when Fran-
cisco Liriano held the White
Sox hitless. Last-place Chicago
has lost 17 of 21.
Blackburn (2-4) held the
White Sox to four hits and a
run in 6 2-3 innings, including
Alex Rios’ solo homer in the
third that tied the game 1-1.
John Danks (0-5), a 15-game
winner a year ago, gave up
eight hits and three runs over
eight innings for Chicago. Matt
Capps got his fifth save in six
chances.
Blue Jays 3, Rays 2
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. —

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Nick
Markakis homered, Jake Arrie-
ta pitched seven strong innings
and the rejuvenated Baltimore
Orioles got a lucky landing to
beat Kansas City, snapping the
Royals’ four-game winning
streak.
It was 3-1 in the eighth when
Alcides Escobar singled with
one out against Orioles reliever
Jim Johnson. Mike Aviles fol-
lowed with a drive past center
fielder Adam Jones that
wedged under the fence, in
plain sight.
Aviles circled the bases with
what fans thought was a tying,
inside-the-park home run. But
second base umpire and crew
chief Tim Welke made Aviles
return to second with a double
and sent Escobar back to third.

NEW YORK — Major
League Baseball believes the
Los Angeles Dodgers do not
have enough money to make
their end of May payroll, a per-
son familiar with the team’s fi-
nances told The Associated
Press.
The person spoke Wednes-
day on condition of anonymity
because MLB’s investigationof
the team’s finances under own-
er Frank McCourt is ongoing.
The Los Angeles Times first re-
ported that the Dodgers lacked
the cash to make their May 31
payroll.
The person said that if the
Dodgers don’t have the money,
MLB would step in and make
payroll.
“We’ve been assured that all
their obligations will be met,”
union head Michael Weiner
said in a telephone interview
with the AP.
Commissioner Bud Selig
and the man he appointed to
monitor the Dodgers, Tom
Schieffer, were to meet Thurs-
day. McCourt said in a state-
ment to the AP that he blamed
the commissioner’s office for
any financial issues.
“The fact that we had obliga-
tions coming due in 2011 was
no surprise to us and no sur-
prise to Major League Base-
ball,” McCourt said.
McCourt has publicly com-
plained Selig has refused to ap-
prove a 17-year contract with
Fox that could be worth more
than $3 billion, a deal that
would include a front-loaded
payment of about $300million.
His lawyers sent a letter to
MLB putting his complaints in
writing, a precursor to a possi-
ble lawsuit.
“We developed a plan which
eventually became the Fox
transaction. We’ve been work-
ing on that plan, in different
versions, for the last six
months,” McCourt said. “That
is a transaction that is now
completely negotiated, ready
to be signed, and ready to be
closed. It’s the series of delays
in allowing us to close this
transaction that has created
the problem here. Otherwise,
there would be no problem
here. My recent investment in-
to the club was necessitated by
the delay.”
The commissioner’s office
effectively took control of the
teamonApril 20, andSchieffer,
the former Texas Rangers pres-
ident, was appointed by Selig
the following week. Schieffer
must approve any transaction
over $5,000. MLBis investigat-
ing the finances of the team
and related entities since
McCourt bought the Dodgers
fromthe Foxdivisionof Rupert
Murdoch’s News Corp. in
2004.
Rob Manfred, MLB’s execu-
tive vice president for labor re-
lations, said McCourt and the
Dodgers were the cause of any
difficulties. Manfred met with
Schieffer on Wednesday and
was to join Thursday’s session
with Selig.
“Any financial problems
facedby the Los Angeles Dodg-
ers are the result of decisions
made by Mr. McCourt and his
management team over a peri-
od of years,” Manfred said in a
statement. “The pace of the
commissioner’s investigation
has been adversely impacted
by the Dodgers’ failure to pro-
duce documents in a timely
manner and by the complexity
of the financial structures sur-
rounding the club. The com-
missioner intends to complete
the investigation promptly but
will not accept less than a thor-
ough investigation.”
The Dodgers said late
Wednesday that the docu-
ments and financial informa-
tion requested by MLB on
April 20 had been placed in a
data room at Dodger Stadium
earlier inthe dayandthat a cur-
rent financial report on the
team was given to Schieffer
and MLB executive vice presi-
dent John McHale Jr. last
week.

If this season
is a mess –
what with rain-
outs, more
rainouts, sched-
ule and site
switches almost
daily – just wait
until 2012.
The 2012 girls soccer season
will be the last in the spring.
Then it’s a few months off and
back to the field for the fall 2012
as the PIAA moves all girls
soccer to one season.
The change could affect just
what the Wyoming Valley Con-
ference looks like in fall 2012.
After chatting informally with
several people in the girls soc-
cer circle, here are some of the
things that could happen.
· Exodus of teams: The WVC
has 20 teams in girls soccer.
Three of them – Delaware Val-
ley, Honesdale and North Poco-
no – will likely be moving to the
Lackawanna Conference. Makes
sense. Those schools play in the
Lackawanna Conference in just
about every other sport.
So that would put the WVC at
17 teams for the fall 2012, but
some observers see it shrinking
even more.
· Loss of programs: One per-
son said he could see WVC girls
soccer down to 14 teams by fall
2012. That might be a bit pessi-
mistic, but then again. Soccer
programs will be battling the
big monster – field hockey – in
the fall for players and will
come out on the losing end.
GAR and Hanover Area could
be two programs on the en-
dangered list. Both have strug-
gled with numbers, and GAR
had just 12 girls on its preseason
roster.
Wyoming Area would have
been on the list as well, but has
seen a huge increase in its ros-
ter under first-year coach Mike
Pryor. I was shocked when I saw
the Warriors’ bench loaded with
reserves. In the past, Wyoming
Area was lucky to have four or
five backups. It had 31 on its
preseason roster.
Wyoming Seminary also had
trouble finding players, finishing
2010 with only 12 healthy. The
Blue Knights, though, had 29 on
their preseason roster.
The issue for both soccer
programs is field hockey. Wyom-
ing Area has formed a solid field
hockey program in a short peri-
od of time. Seminary has one of
the best field hockey programs
not only in the state but the
nation. If there is a mass exodus
of players to that sport, the
soccer programs will surely be
hurt, but hopefully not to the
point where both schools will be
forced to can soccer.
· Where to play: This one is
too complicated to explain fully,
but put it this way: there are
schools out there that will have
a girls soccer team, a boys soc-
cer team and a field hockey
team all trying to play in the
same stadium. Oh, and don’t
forget the football team, which
just might want to practice on
the synthetic surface as well
because it has a Friday night
game on the field.
One person floated the idea of
playing boys and girls soccer
doubleheaders. The problem,
though, is when do the jayvees
get to play? Alternate fields are
going to be a necessity, and
inevitably some program will
end up angry with the solution.
· Officiating: I know most of
the soccer officials by name or
face. Except at one game, I
didn’t know who the three offi-
cials were. A person there said
the WVC gets some from the
Scranton area in the spring. But
let’s be honest, the WVC won’t
get them in the fall 2012. So
more soccer officials will be
needed. And the way some
coaches think about the officiat-
ing now, wait until a bunch of
newcomers take the field.
Obviously, there are or will be
a few more problems, but those
four have come to the forefront.
PLAYOFF FORMAT UPDATE
The playoff format published
in the WVC preview needs to be
revisited. The format was a
proposal, something not noted
when it was received, and the
change is a minor one.
There is no play-in game for a
District 2 playoff berth. Instead,
the 10-team playoff is as follows:
the top four teams in Division
1-A; the top three teams in Divi-
sion 1-B; the top two teams in
Division 2-A; and the top team
in Division 2-B.
The top two teams in Divi-
sion 1-A will receive first-round
byes. The rest will be seeded by
the D2 soccer committee.
The regular season is set to
end May 13, but that won’t
happen since Honesdale and
Tunkhannock have a makeup
game set for May 18, the final
possible regular-season date
that won’t hamper the district
tournament.
OUT OF LINE
The Tunkhannock-Meyers
game played at Wilkes-Barre
Memorial Stadium had some
quirkiness to the field.
First, the football field side-
lines were used, and the teams
probably set an unofficial WVC
record for throw-ins. Secondly,
since the school didn’t want
extra temporary lines painted
on the field, the penalty area
was 20 yards long, not 18 yards.
And the keeper box was 5 yards
long not 6 yards.
Both teams agreed to the
dimensions.
GOOD AND BAD DEICISIONS
Last week’s Dallas-Coughlin
game was called with plenty of
time left in the second half due
to lightning. The result was a 1-1
tie in the crucial contest, but it
was the correct call to not wait
out the lightning to see if play
could resume. The game was
played at night at Lake-Lehman
and with a huge storm just a
few miles away, there was no
reason to keep everyone at the
stadium.
Now the bad decision. It was
amazing how many people
stood around in the parking lot
and didn’t seek shelter either
inside a vehicle or the school
with lightning all around the
area.
BIG GAME CHANGE
The Dallas vs. Berwick game
on Monday will be at Dallas,
not Berwick as on the original
schedule. The teams flip-
flopped home dates so the first
meeting could be played on
Berwick’s fake grass.

Weather shuffles around
local high school schedule
The Times Leader staff
Misericordia’s Pete Egbert
was named Freedom Confer-
ence Baseball Coach of the
Year on Wednesday, with six of
his players being named to the
all-conference team. A total of
nine local college players in all
earned all-conference honors.
Egbert helped lead the Cou-
gars to the top seed in this
weekend’s Freedom Confer-
ence tournament in Quaker-
town, posting a 23-13 overall
record with a 14-7 mark in
league play.
The 23 wins were the most
for the program since joining
the NCAA Division III ranks in
1993.
A pair of Wyoming Valley
West grads – infielder Andrew
Tressa and outfielder Kenny
Durling – were named first-
team All-Freedom on Wednes-
day along with teammates Pat
Clark and Matt Karabin, both
pitchers.
Catcher Andy Gonzalez and
infielder Nate Newman made
the second team to round out
the Cougars’ honors.
In addition, King’s outfielder
Chris Sweeney (Crestwood)
and Wilkes infielder Matt Ruch
(Holy Redeemer) made the
first team, while King’s desig-
nated hitter Brenton Eades was
on the second team.
Freedom tourney opens
A late-season surge helped
King’s hold off rival Wilkes and
claim the fourth and final spot
in this weekend’s Freedom
Conference tournament.
The Monarchs’ reward will
be to face another area team,
top-seeded Misericordia, in the
tournament opener at 4 p.m.
Friday at Quakertown Memo-
rial Park in Quakertown.
The Cougars swept the regu-
lar-season series from King’s
(16-17-1, 11-9-1), scoring 37 runs
in three games at the Mon-
archs’ home field.
No. 2 seed DeSales will play
No. 3 FDU-Florham at 7 p.m.
to close out the first day of the
double-elimination tourna-
ment, which continues Sat-
urday and concludes with
Sunday’s championship round.
SOFTBALL
King’s hosting tournament
Two-time defending league
champion King’s will go for a
third straight title beginning
Friday when the Lady Mon-
archs play host to the Freedom
Conference Softball Champion-
ships this weekend at the
school’s Betzler Complex in
Wilkes-Barre Township.
King’s (15-11, 8-6 Freedom)
is the No. 3 seed in the four-
team, double-elimination tour-
nament. The bracket opens at
11 a.m. Friday with No. 1 De-
Sales and No. 4 Manhattan-
ville. King’s will then take on
No. 2 FDU-Florham at 1 p.m.
The tournament continues
through Saturday with the
championship round starting
at 1 p.m.
Single-day tickets are set at
$6 for adults, $5 for seniors
and $3 for students. All-session
tickets are also available at $10
for adults, $8 for seniors, and
$5 for students.

no contact with the goalie and
then I watched it on video and
there was not contact,” Hynes
said. “I’m not sure what the ra-
tionale was behind waiving it
off.”
Instead of being up1-0, things
remained scoreless through the
second period as the Penguins
continued their attack.
But Murphy held his ground,
making several big stops includ-
ing three during 59 seconds of a
Penguins 5-on-3 advantage.
On the night the Penguins
were 0-for-5 on the power play
andhaven’t scoredwiththe man
advantage in their last 16 chanc-
es, dating back to the third peri-
od of Game 1.
Charlotteis aperfect 25-for-25
on the penalty kill at home and
8-for-8 when facing a two-man
advantage.
Still, Hynes remained confi-
dent that the Penguins cansolve
the Charlotte penalty kill by
simply continuing to improve
on their power play.
“We’re getting quality scoring
chances. Eventually the puck’s
going to go over the goal line,”
he said. “We haven’t got the
bounce we need.”
Charlotte’s goal at 2:01 of the
third came during its fourth
power play of the night. With
the puck in the Penguins zone,
Chris Collins was hurt while try-
ing to make a clearing attempt
along the boards. With Collins
on the ice, the puck made its
way to the man he would’ve
been covering – Chris Terry,
who fired a wrist shot from the
right circle for a 1-0 lead.
The Penguins roared back in-
to the Charlotte end on the next
shift. Murphy came up big,
sprawling to stop Geoff Walker
at the post and again during a
jam-up at the crease.
At the end of the night, Mur-
phy earned his first shutout of
the playoffs and held the Pen-
guins to just one goal in the last
two games.
If the Penguins hope to avoid
being eliminated on Friday
night, they are well aware that
Murphy is the riddle that they
need to solve.
“Right now he’s the joker and
we haven’t found a way to solve
it yet,” Hynes said. “You can al-
ways solve a goaltender. You
have to finda way to do it andbe
committed to that. You have to
be relentless in that solution.”
And confident that sooner or
later at least one bounce will go
your way.
“We have to get rewarded at
some point,” Craig said, adding
the plan for Game 5 is simple.
“Just stick with our game,” he
said. “We’re not going to change
our game now. Win one game.
That’s what we need to do.”

OMAHA, Neb. — Jim Delany
calls the Nebraska Cornhuskers

Ten.
The Big Ten commissioner
said Wednesday that the Big
Ten’s attraction to Nebraska
went beyond geography and a
shared culture with member
schools.
“It’s really about the games,”
Delany said. “We’re not the
NFL, but the NFL has a very
small-market team, Green Bay,
and their games are national
games, and everything they do
is followed. The Nebraska brand
has developed in such a way as
other names like Oklahoma,
Texas, Southern Cal. It’s one of
those programs.”
Though Nebraska accepted
its invitation to the Big Ten last
June, the school’s appeal to the
conference was called into ques-
tion last week when the presti-
gious Association of American
Universities dropped Nebraska
from its membership.
The AAU is made up of about
five dozen of the top research
universities in the nation. Each
of the current Big Ten schools is
a member. Nebraska joined the
association in 1909 and became
the first school to be dropped.
Nebraska fell short on a number
of criteria related to its prowess
as a researchinstitutionandwas
voted out.

Carr chooses Hampden-Sydney
Holy Redeemer senior basketball player Austin Carr has
decided to continue his education and basketball career at
Division III Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia. "We are
thrilled with Austin’s decision to join our program here at
Hampden-Sydney College,” said Dee Vick, the program’s
head coach. “Austin is the consummate student-athlete
and will be an asset to our basketball team and our school.
Raised in a basketball family, he is an old-school player who
understands the value of good character, a strong work
ethic, and playing with intensity." Pictured from left to right
are: Front row, Jim Carr, Austin Carr, Trish Carr. Back Row:
John McCarthy, assistant coach; Michael Booth, vice princi-
pal; Mark Belenski, head coach; James Higgins, athletic
director.
STATE COLLEGE — Penn
State and Ohio State are taking
their Big Ten grudge match to
the volleyball court.
OK, the rivalry may not have
the same intensity as a football
slugfest at Beaver Stadium or
the Horseshoe. There’s not even
a Big Ten men’s volleyball con-
ference.
But there will still be a lot at
stake when the Nittany Lions
(24-6) and Buckeyes (24-6) meet
Thursday night in the NCAA
championship semifinals at
Penn State’s Rec Hall. After all, a
berth in the final on Saturday is
at stake, as is an opportunity to
boost thenational popularityof a
sport that has its roots on the Pa-
cific Coast beaches.
Of course, a California school
isn’t out of the mix for a title, ei-
ther. The Ohio State-Penn State
winner will meet either top-
ranked and top-seeded Southern
California (23-3), or upstart UC-
Santa Barbara (17-14) on Satur-
day night.
“There’s some West Coast bias
in volleyball,” said USC coach
Bill Ferguson, whose Trojans
play in what is considered to be
men’s volleyball toughest
league, the Mountain Pacific
Sports Federation. “But that’s
not to say that there are not un-
believable quality programs in
Penn State and Ohio State.
“You’ve got the cool Big Ten
thing going on. There’s nothing
negative that can come of it.”
But the championship is just
one piece of a weekend-long
event.
Penn State is a co-sponsor
with USA Volleyball on an event
called “Volleyball Extravagan-
za.” It’s a first-of-its kind gather-
ing that includes a U.S. men’s na-
tional training team scrimmage;
a USAVolleyball boys clinic; and
a boys high school tournament
that will include 35 teams.
“My intent was to raise the bar
for future men’s volleyball cham-
pionshipweeks,” saidPennState
coach Mark Pavlik, who helped
create the event. “Let’s turn it in-
to a celebration of men’s and
boys’ volleyball to the stage
that’s the biggest that our sport
has.”
Volleyball great Karch Kiraly,
a U.S. women’s national teamas-
sistant coach, said it’s a logical
step to take to promote the sport
on NCAA tournament weekend,
especially in a state like Pennsyl-
vania which has a strong boys
high school volleyball reputa-
tion.
Unlike other countries, the
United States does not have an
established professional volley-
ball league from which to draw
players, so high schools and col-
leges are the breeding grounds
for the next batch of potential
Olympians.
“This is looked at to help con-
tinue or accelerate the process of
keeping the sport in front of the
eyeballs of lots of boys, andthat’s
a great thing,” Kiraly said
Wednesday as he watched the
Trojans practice.
At the high-school level, there
are about 450,000 girls playing
volleyball, compared to about
50,000 boys. Kiraly said that is in
part to a trickle-down effect of
the impact of the Title IX law,
which mandates equal opportu-
nities for men and women in ath-
letics.
The weekend’s marquee at-
traction, though, remains the
matches at Rec Hall, the 5,800-
capacity home of the second-
seeded Nittany Lions, who won
their 13th straight Eastern Inter-
collegiate Volleyball Association
championship this season.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. —No one
else at Quail Hollow has won
more majors, and no one is close
to his PGA Tour victories. Not
surprisingly, no one had more
fans following his every move
Wednesday at the Wells Fargo
Championship.
That used to be the case for Ti-
ger Woods.
This time it was for Arnold
Palmer, the King, but only for a
day.
The tournament that always
goes the extra step brought in an
81-year-old for its star power in
the pro-am. Palmer, who once
lived on the 15th hole and helped
bring the Kemper Open to Quail
Hollow years ago, played with
clubpresident JohnHarrisonand
Sam Saunders, Palmer’s grand-
sonwhowas givena sponsor’s ex-
emption.
“It played tougher than I’ve ev-
er seen it play,” Palmer said. “But
it’s great. I think it’s set up for a
real good tournament.”
Woods, who last year missed
the cut with his highest 36-hole
score, is not playing because of
what he described as a minor
knee injury sustained in the third
round of the Masters. He is to de-
cide Friday whether to play next
week in The Players Champion-
ship.
Quail Hollow isn’t suffering
from lack of star power.
The defendingchampionis Ro-
ry McIlroy, who turned 22 on
Wednesday.
His birthday celebration in-
cludedbeingselectedfor random
drug testing. McIlroy only has
two wins, although last year was
extraordinary. He rallied with a
late eagle just to make the cut,
then closed with a course-record
62 for a four-shot victory over
Phil Mickelson.
McIlroy hasn’t played in Amer-
ica since he shot 80 in the last
round of the Masters to lose a
four-shot lead. He isn’t playing
next week at The Players, so that
meant a trip over from Northern
Ireland, than going right back
home.

LOS ANGELES — Los An-
geles Clippers forward Blake
Griffin was named the Rookie of
the Year on Wednesday after a
landslide vote, becoming the
NBA’s first unanimous choice for
the award in 21 years.
Griffin received every first-
place vote from a panel of 118
media members, easily outdis-
tancing Washington’s John Wall.
The 6-foot-10 forward is the first
to win it unanimously since San
Antonio’s David Robinson in
1990, and just the third unani-
mous choice in NBAhistory after
Ralph Sampson in 1984.
Griffin led all rookies in scor-
ingandreboundingwhileplaying
in all 82 games for the Clippers,
finishing 12th in the entire NBA
in scoring (22.5 points) and
fourth in rebounds (12.1). The
electrifying dunker was the
NBA’s first rookie All-Star since
YaoMingin2003, andhe wonthe
dunk contest at All-Star weekend
with an iconic leap over a car.
“My teammates, every single
one, did such an amazing job
helping me in a year that was fil-
led with ups and downs, when I
was learning a lot about the
game,” Griffin said while accept-
ing the award at the Clippers’
training complex. “Everybody
has been unbelievably incredible
and really helped me get back
from injury to this point. We’re
excited about where the Clippers
are headed. We just laid the foun-
dation, and we can’t wait until
next year.”
The No. 1 draft pick out of Ok-
lahoma in 2009 missed all the
2009-10 season with a broken
kneecap, but returned with one
of the most impressive debut
campaigns in a generation.
Griffin was named the Western
Conference’s Rookie of the
Month six times, becoming the
first player to sweep that award
since Chris Paul did it with New
Orleans in 2005-06. He’s the first
rookie to average 20 points and
10 rebounds since Elton Brand in
1999-00.

Andrej Meszaros spoiled Tho-
mas’ shutout bid with 3:34 left in
the middle period. The Flyers
pulled the goalie with over 2
minutes left, but back-to-back
penalties gave the Bruins a 5-
on-3 advantage. Chara put a slap
shot in with1:22 left for Boston’s
first power-play goal of the play-
offs.
A victory in any of the next
three games would help erase
the sting of last year’s collapse,
whenBostonled3-0ingames be-
fore Philadelphia came back to
tie the series. In Game 7, the
Bruins tooka 3-0leadbut lost 4-3
and the Flyers went on to the
Stanley Cup finals.
That, and the fact that the
Bruins have yet to score a 5-on-4,
power-play goal in the postsea-
son, will keep themfromgetting
too confident.
Boston was 0 for 28 with a
man advantage heading into
Game 3.
The Bruins came back to Bos-
ton after taking the first two
games in Philadelphia to steal
home-ice advantage and jumped
right on the Flyers.
Boucher made the initial save
on Boston’s first charge, but the
puck wound up behind the net.
Patrice Bergeron dug it out and
passed it in front to Chara, who
slappedit intothe net just 30sec-
onds in.
Only33seconds later, withthe
crowd still celebrating the first
goal, Hortonhelpedset upKrejci
to make it 2-0.
The goals were the fastest al-
lowedby the Flyers at the start of
a playoff game in franchise histo-
ry. It was the fastest a team had
scored two goals to start a play-
off game since the RedWings tal-
lied twice in 61 seconds against
Phoenix in 1998, according to
STATS LLC.
And the Bruins kept going.

Paille with an open shot at 13:39
of the second. Horton, a playoff
rookie, made it 4-0 with his fifth
goal of the postseason at 15:14 of

TAMPA, Fla. — Sean Bergen-
heim scored two goals and
Dwayne Roloson stopped 33
shots as the surging Tampa Bay
Lightning completed a series
sweep of the top-seeded Wash-
ington Capitals with a 5-3 victo-
ry in Game 4 on Wednesday
night.
Playing on consecutive
nights for the first time this
postseason, the Lightning ex-
tended their winning streak to
seven games and advanced to
the Eastern Conference finals
for the first time since their
2004 Stanley Cup champion-
ship season.
For Alex Ovechkin and the
Capitals it was yet another
bitter postseason disappoint-
ment.
Rookie Michal Neuvirth
stopped 32 shots for Washing-
ton, but Bergenheim scored
twice in eight minutes during
the second period to build a 3-1
lead that induced chants of
“sweep, sweep, sweep” from a
sellout crowd of 20,835.
The Lightning’s big three of
Martin St. Louis, Vincent Leca-
valier and Steven Stamkos have
elevated their games, but so has
Bergenheim, who has a team-
leading seven goals through
two rounds. St. Louis’ sixth
goal of the playoffs, with 3:08
remaining, finished Tampa
Bay’s scoring.
Ryan Malone and Marc-
Andre Bergeron added goals for
the Lightning, who have not
lost since dropping into a 3-1
hole against the Pittsburgh
Penguins in the first round.
Marco Sturm, John Erskine
and John Carlson scored for the
Capitals.
The Lightning won the first
two games in Washington, then
pushed the Capitals to the
brink of elimination by winning
Game 3 in Tampa on Tuesday
night.
They were expecting the
toughest game of the series
Wednesday, calling the Capitals
a proud team that would not be
taken lightly. Washington felt
the first three games could have
gone either way, with Ovechkin
insisting after Game 3 that the
series was far from over and
that he expected his team to
come back and win.
Malone scored with Ovech-
kin in the penalty box for charg-
ing, giving Tampa Bay a 1-0
lead at 12:37 of the first period.
The Lightning have not lost a
game in the playoffs in which
they’ve scored first, however
Washington proved again to be
resilient after falling behind
early.
The Capitals tied it late in
the first, scoring for only the
second time in 17 power-play
opportunities in the series.
Jason Arnott and Ovechkin
assisted on Sturm’s goal, how-
ever Washington couldn’t build
on the momentum during a
second period in which it was
outshot 17-10.
Sharks 4, Red Wings 3
DETROIT — Devin Set-
oguchi scored 9:21 into over-
time to finish a hat trick, and
the San Jose Sharks took a
commanding 3-0 lead over the
Detroit Red Wings in the West-
ern Conference semifinals with
a win.
The Sharks will have a
chance to sweep the series in
Game 4 on Friday night in
Detroit.
San Jose’s Dan Boyle scored
the tying goal with 4:08 left in
regulation, setting up the
Sharks’ second overtime win of
the series.
Pavel Datsyuk scored a go-
ahead goal late in the second
period, but Detroit couldn’t
hold on.
The Red Wings also didn’t
capitalize when Setoguchi went
to the penalty box at 5:14 of
overtime for holding, failing to
score a third power-play goal.

CHICAGO — Newly
crowned MVP Derrick Rose
scored 25 points, Joakim Noah
added 19 points and 14 re-
bounds, and the Chicago Bulls
beat the Atlanta Hawks 86-73
in Game 2 of the Eastern Con-
ference semifinals on Wednes-
day night to tie the series.
The top-seeded Bulls shook
off a dismal performance in
the opener and looked more
like the team with a league-
leading 62 wins, building a 14-
point lead and ending the
game on a 9-2 run after the
Hawks got within six.
Now, the series shifts to At-
lanta for Games 3 and 4 Friday
and Sunday, with Chicago at
least in better shape after a
103-95 loss in Game 1.
The night started with Com-
missioner David Stern pre-
senting Rose the MVP trophy,
and the superstar point guard
showed just why he became
the youngest player to win the
award — at least in the first
half, when he scored 16
points.
He went cold after that and
wound up hitting just 10 of 27
shots, going 1 of 8 on 3-point-
ers. He did convert 4 of 6 free
throws after failing to get to
the line in the opener.
Whether the left ankle he
sprained in the first round
against Indiana and then
twisted at the end of Game 1
was bothering him wasn’t
clear.
At times, he seemed more
aggressive, but the shots stop-
ped falling.
Noah helped pick up the
slack. So did Luol Deng, who
scored all but two of his 14
points in the second half and
grabbed 12 rebounds in the
game.
Carlos Boozer, bothered by
a turf toe injury on his right
foot, had eight points and 11
boards, and the Bulls let out a
small sigh of relief after sal-
vaging a split at home.
They won even though they
shot just 39 percent and were
5 of 22 on 3-pointers, because
they dominated on the glass
and locked down Atlanta.
The Bulls outrebounded the
Hawks 58-39 after getting bea-
ten on the boards 38-37 in
Game 1 and held them to 33.8
percent shooting, after they
converted just over 51 percent
in the opener.

Stern hopes to keep
dispute out of courts
CHICAGO — Commissioner
David Stern hopes the NBA
does not follow the NFL’s lead
and keeps its labor dispute with
the union out of the courts.
Stern says litigation is “not
appropriate to making a deal.”
He says they “understand what
a chaotic situation looks like.”
All he has to do is look at the
NFL, where locked-out players
and owners are embroiled in a
bitter dispute that’s playing out
in court.
The NBA’s current collective
bargaining agreement expires
June 30, and Stern has made it
clear the owners will lock out
the players if a deal that gives
them the financial relief they’re
seeking can’t be reached.

A full field of 20 will start theKentucky Derby with early favorite, Dialed In, drawing the No. 8 post position.
last year and identified what we
thought was the reason for the
poor performance in the Wood. I
think if he shows up and he’s the
Uncle Mofromthe Breeders’ Cup
or the Champagne or even the
Timely Writer, he’s the horse to
beat.”
Uncle Mo would have to over-
come a bit of history.
Only one horse since 1900 has
come out of the No. 18 hole to
win and that was Gato Del Sol in
1982.
Still, Pletcher and Repole were
relieved to have avoided the rail.
“We had this overlying fear we
were goingtoget the1,” the train-
er said. “Once it was anything be-
sides that we were happy.”
Repole’s other colt, Stay Thir-
sty —also trained by Pletcher —
landed in the No. 4 post and is
20-1 on the morning line set by
Churchill Downs oddsmaker
Mike Battaglia.
Pletcher ended an 0-for-24 skid
in the Derby last year when Su-
per Saver won from the No. 4
post.
Nehro was the third choice at
6-1. The other 17 horses were list-
ed at double-digit odds.
The dreaded No. 1 post along
the inside rail —the last position
revealedduringthe draw—went
to Arkansas Derby winner Ar-
charcharch. That spot did in last
year’s Derby favorite, Lookin At
Lucky, who was blocked behind
horses and finished sixth for
trainer Bob Baffert.
Like Uncle Mo’s connections,
Baffert was happy that stalker
Midnight Interlude escaped the
inside post.
“My wife texted me. She’s at
LAXand said, ‘If we drawthe No.
1, let me knowso I can get off the
plane,”’ he said. “This is the
toughest part of getting through
the whole Derby. From now on
it’s the luck.
“I wanted to be on the outside.
When you have a lightly raced
horse youwant tokeephiminthe
clear as much as possible.”
ArcharcharchandMidnight In-
terlude were the co-fourth choic-
es.
The other trainer with two
starters is Mike Maker, who will
saddle Twinspired and Derby
Kitten.
A total of 22 horses were en-
tered, two more than the maxi-
mumallowed field of 20, which is
based on earnings in graded
stakes races. Sway Away and Rul-
er On Ice were shut out because
their earnings weren’t high
enough to put them among the
top 20.

NEW YORK — Tennessee Ti-
tans backup quarterback Chris
Simms was acquittedWednesday
of driving while high on marijua-
na, winning a case he said
stemmed from a police officer’s
mistake.
“I’m really just happy it’s all
over with,” a relieved but politely
indignant Simms said as he left a
Manhattan courthouse with his
wife, Danielle. “I love the NYPD,
and I’mmad that this happened.”
Jurors, who deliberated for
about an hour in the misdemean-
or case, declined to comment as
they left court.
Simms, the 30-year-old son of
former New York Giants quarter-
back Phil Simms, was arrested
around1a.m. July1at a police so-
briety checkpoint in downtown
Manhattan. He was heading
home to New Jersey after going
out to dinner with his wife and
two friends.
A police officer told jurors that
Simms made a tire-squealing
turn just before the checkpoint,
his Mercedes-Benz SUV reeked
of marijuana and Simms himself
was “like a zombie.” Slurring his
words, Simms said there wasn’t
any marijuana in the car because
“he smoked it all,” Officer Fran-
cisco Acosta testified.
Simms denied the allegations.

GM is on a roll
General Motors has seen its
sales grow by double digits the
last few months, and it’s clear
the company is recovering well
from the recession and its bank-
ruptcy. The latest proof is likely
to come in its first-quarter earn-
ings report. But there’s a big
uncertainty about the future that
investors will want to hear GM
address: How much are sales
likely to dip because of parts
shortages following the March
11 earthquake in Japan?
Is Kraft raising prices again?
The food maker has been con-
tending with the same rising
commodities costs as its com-
petitors, and it has been raising
prices. Its first-quarter earnings
report today is expected to show
whether the company plans
further price hikes. It’s also
expected to give a forecast for
Kraft’s profit margins. The com-
pany has said its margins were
hurt by rising ingredient prices,
but it has forecast a recovery for
the second half of the year.
A case of job market nerves
The Labor Department's weekly
count of how many people applied
for unemployment benefits is caus-
ing some anxiety among investors.
It comes a day after payroll com-
pany ADP disappointed the market
with its estimate of job growth in
April. And it’s a day before the
Labor Department issues its report
on employment for the month. Un-
employment benefit applications
have been moving higher the past
few weeks – another cause for
concern.

Mohegan Sun slots’ take up
Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs
Casino in Plains Township reported a
5.16 percent increase in gross revenues
from its slot machines in April 2011
when compared to April 2010.
The state’s Gaming Control Board
released slot revenue figures for April
on Wednesday and showed that only
four casinos in the state – Mount Airy,
Mohegan Sun, Rivers and Sands –
reported increases. Four others de-
creased and the ninth, SugarHouse,
was not open last April to compare
year-to-year data.
The board reported slot machine
revenue in April rose 8.3 percent over
April 2010, rising from $195.2 million
to $211.3 million. When taking Sugar-
House out of the equation, revenues
only rose 0.82 percent with $196.8
million generated this year.
Dunkin’ to sell stock in IPO
Dunkin’ Brands Group, owner of
coffee chain Dunkin’ Donuts and ice
cream shop Baskin Robbins, filed plans
Wednesday to sell at least $400 million
of stock in an initial public offering.
The planned IPO comes as Dunkin’
Brands would to like to double the
number of its Dunkin’ Donuts outlets
in the U.S. in the long term, to 15,000.
Dunkin’ plans to list its stock on
Nasdaq under the symbol DNKN and
said it would use proceeds to pay off
debt and for general corporate purpos-
es.
In a regulatory filing, Dunkin’ didn’t
outline how many shares it plans to sell
or when it hopes to do the deal.
ConAgra’s bid is rejected
Ralcorp Holdings Inc. has once again
rejected a purchase bid by ConAgra
Foods Inc.
On Wednesday, packaged food maker
ConAgra made a $4.9 billion bid for
cereal maker Ralcorp Holdings Inc. in
an effort to broaden its business mak-
ing store-brand products.
The $86-per-share bid topped a previ-
ous bid of $82 that Ralcorp also reject-
ed, ConAgra said. Ralcorp said the
$86-per-share bid from ConAgra is not
in shareholders’ best interests.
Closing the deal would have made
ConAgra the third-largest packaged
food maker in the U.S.
Time limit on iPhone info
Apple is updating the iPhone to
reduce the amount of time the device
stores information about its users’
whereabouts.
The software released Wednesday
follows through on Apple’s recent
promise to revise a feature that logged
iPhone users’ movements for up to a
year. Apple says the location data won’t
be kept for more than a week after the
changes to the iPhone’s operating sys-
tem are installed.
Apple Inc. faced a backlash from
privacy watchdogs and some indignant
iPhone owners after researchers
showed how the surveillance tech-
nology could be abused at conference
last week.
Apple, the world’s most valuable
technology company, denied it was
spying on iPhone users.

FOR YEARS, THE
Flip video cam was
considered king of
the handheld por-
table cameras. There
wasn’t much that
could beat their
portability, cost, or ease of use.
And while I wasn’t personally a
fan of the plucky little devices, they
did gain quite a devoted following
over the years.
Unfortunately, economic reality
took a toll on the company and it
recently went out of business, leav-
ing a gap since manufacturers of
such small digital camcorders are
hard to come by.
But Flip fans can exhale and re-
joice. You no longer need to mourn
the loss of your beloved Flip.
Olympus has stepped in to fill the
void with an admirably capable and
quite futuristic offering: the
LS-20M.
The LS-20M is a very portable
digital camcorder and since it is
capable of shooting HD video and
packs dual linear PCM microphones
for excellent sound quality at range,
it’s a very able one as well.
though still reasonable given its
capabilities — price of $299.99.
In unrelated news, T-Mobile has
announced that its 4G network is
now available in the Wilkes-Barre/
Scranton market. Though there is a
catch. Full 4G speeds will not be
immediately available in this area,
likely pending increases in band-
width handling capabilities.
T-Mobile reports that high-speed
4G connectivity is currently only
available in Las Vegas, New York,
and Orlando.
The LS-20M also includes several
of Olympus’s proprietary video
filters, so you can adjust the light-
ing of shots in order to achieve a
desired effect.
The Olympus model won’t be
available until June, and it’s report-
ed to come in at a rather steep —

ATLANTICCITY, N.J. —Af-
ter twobadyears inwhichgam-
blers either stayed home or
held onto their wallets more
tightly, the nation’s casinos be-
gan to slowly rebound last year,
with revenue increasing slight-
ly even as the number of jobs
declined.
Anannual AmericanGaming
Association survey released
Wednesday found the nation’s
483commercial casinos tookin
$34.6 billion in 2010, an in-
crease of just under 1 percent
from the $34.28 billion posted
in 2009. That marked the first
time in three years the casinos’
revenue increased.
But jobs in the industry de-
clined slightly to 340,564, a
loss from 2009 of 4,346, or 1.3
percent. That was due largely
to casinos shedding workers to
cope with the continued slug-
gish economy. Oklahoma expe-
rienced the largest percentage
decline in its work force when
one of its three racetrack casi-
nos closed last year, eliminat-
ing about 327 jobs.
“There’s no question the last
several years have been chal-
lenging for the commercial ca-
sino industry,” said Frank Fah-
renkopf Jr., the association’s
president. “There’s good rea-
son to be optimistic about the
future of gaming. The industry
has made tough choices and
implemented newstrategies to
persevere.”
Casino taxes to state and lo-
cal governments totaled nearly
$7.6 billion, an increase of 3
percent.
Nevada’s casinos took in
$10.4 billion, virtually the same
amount as the year before.
Atlantic City, N.J., the na-
tion’s second-largest casino
market after Las Vegas, posted
the biggest annual decline at
9.4 percent.
NewJersey was for years the
only state beside Nevada with
legal commercial casinos, but
it’s now is beset by fierce com-
petition from casinos in neigh-
boring Pennsylvania, NewYork
and Delaware, not to mention
Indian casinos a short drive
away in Connecticut.

PLAINS TWP. – A new Dun-
kin’ Donuts franchise is expect-
ed to open on state Route 315
near the Mohegan Sun at Poco-
no Downs casino by winter.
Wilkes-Barre-based Richland
Real Estate Investments Ltd.
announced Wednesday that a
franchise of the coffee and
doughnut shop operated by
Cope Enterprises LLC, of
Wilkes-Barre, will be the first
tenant of its Richland 315 devel-
opment project, located across
the street from the Isabella Res-
taurant and Bar on Route 315.
Richland is also seeking ten-
ants for a proposed three-story,
53,000-square-foot office build-
ing it plans to build on the 8.5-
acre parcel as well as for a re-
maining vacant subdivision.
TFP Real Estate Develop-
ment Ltd., an affiliated compa-
ny of Richland, is also seeking
to develop a Microtel hotel and
two fast-food restaurants on an
additional 5-acre plot on Route
315 between New Age Media
Fox Studio and Lispi Brothers
Towing & Services.
Plans submitted to the Plains
Township zoning office in April

WILKES-BARRE — The county’s
largest powersports dealer has solidified
its position by purchasing its chief com-
petitor.
William L. Davis Jr. and Jacqueline R.
Davis, the owners of Two Jacks Cycle &
Powersports on North Washington
Street in Wilkes-Barre, purchased Riders
World from the Volpetti Family Partner-
ship Ltd. at the end of April. That part-
nership is owned by George and Made-
line Volpetti of Lehman Township.
The new owners have already begun
remodeling their former competitor’s
Coal Street building, which will become
the base of operations for Two Jacks.
J Hanley, Two Jacks’ general manager,
said the plan is to close the Two Jacks
building at 1019 N. Washington St. and
move all of Two Jacks’ inventory and op-
erations into the 338 Coal St. location
that Riders World has occupied since
2001 this summer. Two Jacks has leased
the North Washington Street location,
but as part of the Riders World purchase,
it obtained the former Riders World
building.
According to county property transac-
tions, the purchase price of the 25,414-
square-foot building and the 2.9 acre
property it sits on was $1.5 million.
Hanleysaidthe move “just made sense
for us to continue to grow and expand.”
“We wanted to compete with the big
boys and to do that we needed more
brands,” he said.
The two dealers held franchise rights
to different cycle makers.
TwoJacks has franchiserights toSuzu-
ki, Kawasaki and BMW, while Riders
World had the franchise rights to Yama-
ha, Triumph, Honda and Can Am. The
new Two Jacks will sell six of the seven
brands. Hanley said a decision was made
to drop the Honda brand.
The former Riders World building was
only using half its space. Hanley, of Kun-
kle, said the remodel will convert what
was storage area into a modern show-
room.
Hesaidthat whiletheremodel is going
on, all service workfor customers of both
businesses will take place at the North
Washington Street location.
So far, Hanley said, the reaction from
customers has been positive.
“Everybody seems happy that every-
thing will be under one roof,” Hanley
said.
William Davis, of Mountain Top, pur-
chased Two Jacks in 2009 fromJack Wil-
liams and Jack McHale, the two “Jacks”
in the business’ name. He previously
owned Valley Rent All in Wilkes-Barre.
Riders World relocated to Wilkes-
Barre from Kingston Township in July
2001.

Two Jacks Cycle & Powersports on Coal Street in Wilkes-Barre is the site of the former Riders World, which Two Jacks
purchased. The move means the Two Jacks location on North Washington Street will soon close.

Surprising sales
Companies have a new way to
surprise investors – they’re selling
more stuff.
So far, more than three-fifths of
the companies in the S&P 500
have reported first-quarter earn-
ings. Of them, 229, or 76 percent,
have beaten the revenue fore-
casts of financial analysts. That’s
the highest amount since the
recession ended in June 2009.
Revenue surprises are a sign
that the economy is getting
healthier. Consumers aren’t letting
rising prices on basics like food
stop them from buying things that
aren’t necessities. Two out of
every three companies that sell
extras like dresses, motorcycles
and trips to Las Vegas had more
revenue than investors expected.
And companies are spending
more. Caterpillar says it will nearly
double its capital spending this
year to $3 billion. Capital spend-
ing is the money a company puts
toward building plants and buying
equipment.
The revenue surprises are one
reason the S&P 500 is up 1.6 per-
cent in the second quarter and 7
percent this year.
Revenue surprises also came
from industrial and technology
companies that produce every-
thing from bulldozers to cell-
phones. These companies typi-
cally do well when the economy is
growing and businesses increase
production.
But analysts question how long
the trend can last. Companies like
Procter & Gamble and
McDonald’s are raising prices.
The price of gas goes up almost
daily. At some point, it’s feared
that consumers will be forced to
make a choice between splurging
and gassing up their cars. And
companies won’t be able to sell
as much.

The casino operator, which owns
the Bellagio and Luxor in Las Ve-
gas, said its first-quarter loss nar-
rowed as its revenue rose.
First-quarter net income fell 12 per-
cent as the cereal maker dealt with
higher ingredient costs and spent
more on new products.
The packaged food maker made a
$4.9 billion bid for cereal maker Ral-
corp Holdings, which Ralcorp later
rejected.
Serious doubts about the health of the job market
and the pace of the economic recovery put mar-
kets on edge Wednesday. Stocks fell after payroll
processor ADP said companies added 179,000
new jobs in April, far fewer than economists had
expected. The Institute for Supply Management
said its service sector index rose at the slowest
pace in 8 months in April. The Dow fell 0.7 per-
cent. The S&P 500 index fell 0.7 percent. The
Nasdaq fell 0.5 percent.

We have proba-
bly had more
rain in the past 3
weeks than in
any other 3-
week period
since records
began. The total
is a little over 8
inches. So I'm
happy to report
that today will
be a day without
rain because
above 6,000 feet
the air is now
bone dry. But
despite the
return of sun-
shine, a gusty
breeze will help
keep afternoon
readings 10
degrees below
normal. Another
shallow trough
of low pressure
will approach
Friday, and this
will limit sun-
shine over the
weekend and
bring a chance
for scattered
showers. The
outlook for this
month is for us
to have normal
rainfall, so per-
haps the worst
of the rain is
now behind us.
- Tom Clark
NATIONAL FORECAST: A frontal boundary will produce showers and thunderstorms over portions of
the Upper Midwest and the Mid- to Upper Mississippi Valley today. Showers can also be expected in
New England as another system is slow to move out of the region. Meanwhile, high pressure will
allow for sunny to partly cloudy skies from the Mid-Atlantic to the Southeast.

LOS ANGELES — Jeans for this
springandsummerhavegonefrombasic
blues and intense indigo to Technicolor
versions of playful Crayola shades. It’s all
very 1980s a la Esprit or Benetton, but
thistimethere’snothingjuniorabout col-
ored denim. It’s coming in sleek skinny
shapes andcroppedlengths that livenup
simple T-shirts or button-downs and
work well with neutral sandals or flats
rather than a pair
of old-school high-
top Reeboks.
The most pop-
ular color seems
to be red. Celebri-
tiessuchasRihan-
na and Rachel Bil-
son have been
seen sporting at-
tention-grabbing
skinny reds. For
colder months,
red jeans look
saucy paired with
leopard accesso-
ries and a sharp
black blazer. But
for summer,
they’re good with
a simple white T-
shirt or black-and-
whitestripedtank
top and black
flats. The colorful
jeans are the focal
point for anoutfit,
and you don’t
have to do much
else in the way of
styling. Too much
pattern or addi-
tional color worn
with brightly col-
ored pants will
have you looking
like a box of
crayons that’s ex-
ploded and per-
haps melted.
Labels includ-
ing Rag & Bone,
Paige, 7 for All
Mankind, J Brand
and Current/El-
liott are serving
upanarrayof rain-
bow shades for
spring and sum-
mer. Besides red,
many of them are
also doing hues
such as teal, lem-
on yellow, laven-
der and salmon
pink.
Colored jeans
make it easy to
wear denim-on-
denim, as is the
current trend.
Anyof thesestyles wouldlookgreat with
a basic blue jean jacket or simple cham-
bray shirt. Try dressing up a pair with a
crisp white shirt tucked in, a skinny belt
andasexypair of heelsor wedgesandals.
Any simple top that’s mostly solid will
work, though there are some exceptions
— be conservative when pairing bright
jeanswithapatternedtoporaccessory. A
graphic pattern can work, but make sure
it’s not too busy. Stripes would be the
best bet.
And don’t wear a color in your top or
accessories that matches the color of the
jeans. Colorful pants with any kind of
matching top will make you look like
you’re clad in a trendy version of a Hot
Dog on a Stick uniform rather than tak-
ing a spin on summer’s denim color
wheel.

ith socks replacing colored and patterned tights as the new below-the-skirt

wherethe“schoolgirl” lookhas always beenapart of everydaylife. •Theladies of
Redeemer (andeveryother Catholichighschool, for that matter)arenostrangers

are almost positive they know why the look is suddenly making a mainstream

socks they regularly wear as part of their school uniform. What they don’t love is when the socks fall down.
The schoolgirl look is the new hot style for summer

I
’ve always wanted to pair thigh-
high socks with a shift dress and
tie it all together with Mary
Janes.
But no matter how fit my phy-
sique gets, my legs are still thick.
So, basically, I’ve been denying my-
self this little piece of fashion nirva-
na since I was 12. Maybe I’ll have my
chance this spring.
While longer skirts are definitely
the trend of the year, shorter ones
are not a faux pas, and this season,
when it comes to the sheath, socks
will replace opaque tights, leaving
more room for skin — and for mis-
takes, too, if you aren’t careful.
Not only are stylists and retailers
leading the way by showing us con-
trasting black socks with white or
patent leather shoes for a totally
mod look, they are teaching us how
to play with color and texture as
well. For instance, you can wear tax-
icab-yellow peep-toe shoes with a
brown striped sock. Or orange shoes
with navy-blue socks paired with a
white short skirt.
The look has been around the
block before, of course, but its origin
can be traced to1957, said Clare Sau-
ro, director of Drexel University’s
Costume Collection. That’s when
Hubert de Givenchy designed the
waistline-less sack dress, the prede-
cessor of the miniskirt.
French designer Andre Courreges
would taper the look a bit and add
geometric proportions, but by 1966,
British fashion designer Mary Quant
had refined the mini so it skimmed
the body.
Although Roberto Capucci — the
subject of a current Philadelphia
Museum of Art costume exhibition
— is credited with introducing the
sheath-with-socks combo to the cou-
ture world (he even produced his

“Rachel Berry, from ‘Glee,’
wears the schoolgirl look,”
Bridget Guarnieri, a senior at Re-
deemer, said. “She’s the first per-
son I think of now when I hear
about it, so I’m pretty sure that’s
whypeople are startingtogofor it
again.”
Principal Anita Sirak also is no
stranger to the trend.
“It really brings me back to
when I was just starting out as a
teacher,” she said. “When I was in
college the trend was to wear a
plaid skirt with knee socks. I have
a picture of me in my first year of
teaching, and that’s exactly what
I’mwearing.”
As far as Redeemer’s dress code
is concerned, any solid-color
socks that match the uniformwill
work. The uniforms are a mixture
of maroon, navy and a darker pur-
ple bordering on blue, but that
doesn’t mean those are the only
sock colors you’ll find in the hall-
ways.
“I find that green goes really
well with the uniform,” Lauren
Bernardi, a junior, said.
“Purple also looks really good,”
Nina Palloni, a freshman, said.
The girls have discovered a va-
riety of colors complement the
uniform, but there’s one they tend
to avoid.
“I stay away from the white as
much as I can, because they make
my legs look pale,” Becky Ri-
chards, a senior, said.
Sock wearers also must be on
guard for a wardrobe malfunction
that often results fromthe school-
girl look.
“My day is completely ruined
whenmysocksfall down,”Bernar-
di said. “It’s terrible when you’re
walking down the hallway with
your arms full of books and one
just drops.”
Nylon socks are the best way to
go when it comes to material se-
lection, as they tendto stay up the
best.
“Wool are the worst,” Guarnieri
said. “They fall down a lot, and
they aren’t as comfortable.”
Whilesocksarecertainlyahuge
part of the trend, it’s all about the
footwearwhenitcomestodisplay-
ing personal style with the uni-
form look. The girls at Redeemer
can wear any shoe considered tra-
ditional. That means no heels and
nothing athletic, just flats.
“I have a tonof different shoes; I
love shoes,” Palloni said. “I try to
wear different ones all the time.”
Animal print, glitter, odd colors
and designs – it all works.
“Aslongasit matchesthesocks,
you’re good to go,” Richards said.
The combination possibilities
are endless.
“These are our main accessory
withtheuniforms, sowedoevery-
thing we can with it,” said Aman-
da Urbanski, a senior.
The girls love to express their
style through socks and shoes
while at school, but will you catch
themwearing the trendoutside of
Redeemer’s walls?
“It’scute, but no,”Bernardi said.
“I think because we wear it every
day. It would be strange to wear it
anywhere but here.”

own line of socks), the look
didn’t rock the ready-to-
wear industry until Quant
incorporated the pairing in-
to her fashion repertoire in
the late ’60s.
Other designers paired the
two as well, like Austrian-
born Rudi Gernreich (of
thong-invention fame), who
made dresses with coordi-
nated socks — and under-
wear, Sauro said. “It was ve-
ry schoolgirl style.”
Well, the schoolgirl look is
back.
The good thing is that you
don’t necessarily have to go
out and buy new socks, as-
suming you have some
tucked in the back of your
drawers.
And the socks don’t even
have to reach your knee. An-
klets are acceptable, even
encouraged. Wear them with
pumps and even open-toed
shoes.
The No. 1 no-no: You don’t
want to show too much roly-
poly meat; larger legs should
be toned for this trend to
work. (Use your own discre-
tion here.) Also, shave.
Smooth thighs are a must.
I’m looking forward to
wearing a pair of bold pink
socks with my black shift on
the first warm day of spring.
There is hope for me yet.

O N T H E W E B
Dear Abby: I am a
marriage counselor
writing in response
to the March 22 let-
ter from the man
who objected to his
wife having dinner
with a mutual (male)
friend while the writer was on a busi-
ness trip. I found his signature, “Feel-
ing Cheated On in Illinois,” excessive,
perhaps even a signal he has an “own-
ership” attitude toward his spouse,
which is associated with controlling
behavior. In the absence of any reason
to distrust her, why is he so upset?
My husband of 20 years was going
to Japan for a week to visit our foster
daughter. I was unable to go, so one
of my female friends went with him
instead. My husband is attractive, and
no doubt has had many opportunities
to cheat. I realize many spouses are
unfaithful, but you don’t keep them
faithful by keeping them on a short
leash. All that does is make a poten-
tial cheater sneakier.
Because spouses who cheat some-
times claim their lovers-in-waiting
are “just friends” doesn’t mean men
and women can’t be “just friends.” “Il-
linois” is insecure at best, controlling
at worst. I think he should have an
appointment with a therapist and dis-
cuss his expectations of his wife.
— Barbara in Maine
Dear Barbara: I heard from readers
who have firsthand experience in this
subject. And many of them agreed
with you. Read on:
Dear Abby: I’m an at-home wife of a
husband who travels frequently. He
has logged more than 3 million fre-
quent flyer miles in the last 20 years.
I’ll bet the “Illinois” man dines out of-
ten with female colleagues. It’s a fact
of business life these days. And I’ll
bet a lot of the women are married,
too. So, really, what’s the difference?
He needs to look inward at his
own actions and ability to trust.
While travel may be part of his job,
why must his wife be denied adult
companionship when he’s away? A
man and woman eating out together
doesn’t automatically equal “date.”
I do it often when my husband trav-
els. I pay my own way and meet my
friend(s) at the restaurant. It’s a “get-
together” and the only way I can stay
sane.
— Been There And Will Continue
Dear Abby: I travel often and enjoy
dinners with lots of people, both
male and female. I’ve dined with
my neighbor’s husband while we
were stranded at an airport trying
to get home. Should we have sat at
different tables? Implying that this
behavior is “questionable” is outra-
geous. My husband is sometimes
invited to dinner by neighbors when
I’m away and I thank them for their
kindness.
— Julia in Gainesville, Fla.
Dear Abby: I hurt for the wife who
is stuck at home “several nights a
week.” Why couldn’t her husband just
say, “Good for you, you have com-
pany!”? Married people can be friends
with other married members of the
opposite sex. If “Illinois” can’t handle
that reality, then he should find a job
that lets him be home with his wife
every night.
Cathy From Cleveland
DEAR ABBY
A D V I C E
Husband’s lack of trust may mean he wants more control in marriage
To receive a collection of Abby’s most
memorable — and most frequently re-
quested — poems and essays, send a busi-
ness-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus
check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in
Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box
447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage
is included.)
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You
want to feel a reflection of the
joy you bring to what you’re
doing. You’re not working for the
praise, laughter and applause,
but when it comes, it lets you
know you’re on the right track.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The
extremes of work and play,
socializing and self-interest,
money and art — balancing these
things is not something that
always comes naturally. That’s
why they call it a balancing “act.”
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll
act as the wise shaman of your
group. You won’t boss people
around, and yet you’ll cause
them to behave differently.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You
have several tasks to tackle, and
you will spend about two hours
on each one. You will be incred-
ibly productive in these relatively
short stints of work, concentrat-
ing intensely and doing what
needs to be done.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will ben-
efit from exploring your interest
in the natural world. You have
a special connection with rocks,
plants, animals and weather.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll
add new people to your team.
The type of help you want will
come from someone who is con-
fident enough to give you a firm
handshake while looking you in
the eye.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll
gain the respect of a boss or
colleague. It’s not because
everything you do is golden. It’s
because you have the heart to
keep going forward even when
there’s no sign that you’ll find
success.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your
perspective is unique. You’ll
mostly keep your opinions
and observations to yourself.
However, there is one thing you
notice, which you should share.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
You like who you are, and you
like your life. This is reflected in
your activities of the day. You
say “yes” to only the proposi-
tions that look, sound and feel
like they are going to be a blast.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You
don’t ask anyone to be perfect.
You just ask them to show up
and try. You’ll see the proof in
action that someone respects
you, and that makes you
feel proud.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
There’s more for you to do, so
some of your usual self-care
activities might slip through the
cracks. The sacrifices you make
will be worth it in the end. You
can catch up tomorrow.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
can make a mistake and come
back from it. But you much pre-
fer to avoid the pitfalls in the
first place. The research you do
today will allow for exactly that.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 5).
You’ll discover something new
that you can do or a different
and more effective way of oper-
ating with people. You’ll use
this skill to bring prosperity to
you and yours. August brings
love, laughter and many beauti-
ful nights with good friends.
Your special bond with animals
drives the action in September.
Libra and Leo people adore you.
Your lucky numbers are: 4, 10,
24, 33 and 17.
