CHEYENNE, Wyo. The U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency announced
Thursday for the first time that fracking a
controversial method of improving the pro-
ductivity of oil and gas wells may be to
blame for causing groundwater pollution.
The draft finding could have significant
implications while states try to determine
howto regulate the process. Environmental-
ists characterized the report as a significant
development though it met immediate crit-
icismfromthe oil andgas industryanda U.S.
senator.
The practice is called hydraulic fracturing
and involves pumping pressurized water,
sandandchemicals undergroundtoopenfis-
sures andimprovetheflowof oil or gas tothe
surface.
The EPA has found that
compounds likely associated
with fracking chemicals had
been detected in the ground-
water beneath Pavillion, a
small community in central
Wyoming where residents say their well wa-
ter reeks of chemicals. Health officials last
year advised them not to drink their water
after the EPAfound lowlevels hydrocarbons
in their wells.
The EPA announcement could add to the
controversy over fracking, which has played
a large role in opening up many gas reserves,
including the Marcellus Shale in the eastern
U.S. in recent years.

WILKES-BARRE Luzerne
County District Attorney-elect
Stefanie Salavantis spent nearly
$270,000 in her campaign to un-
seat incumbent Jacqueline Mus-
to Carroll, with the majority of
funding coming as loans fromSa-
lavantis parents and in-kind
contributions from the Pennsyl-
vania Republi-
can Party.
Campaign fi-
nance reports
filed Thursday
show Salavan-
tis, a Republi-
can, spent a to-
tal of $238,538
from direct
contributions
and loans for
the general
election, but al-
so received
$29,990 worth
of campaign lit-
erature and as-
sociated post-
age paid for by the Pennsylvania
Republican Party, for a total of
$269,934.
That compares to $122,805
that Musto Carroll, a Democrat,
spent in the primary and general
elections combined.
Salavantis, 29, utilized the war
chest to launch a highly critical
media blitz against Musto Car-
roll, including television, radio
and print ads that attacked her
handling of the juvenile justice
scandal.
While the total spent by Sala-
vantis is significant, it does not
take the record for the most ever
spent on a campaign for district
attorney. Thats held by David
Lupas, now a county judge, who
spent $702,038towinthe district
attorneys seat in the November
1999 election.
The district attorney serves a
four-year term and will earn
$163,602 in 2012.
Musto Carroll said Thursday
she was surprised by the volume
and substance of Salavantis
media campaign. But with just
$72,601 in contributions from in-
dividual donors, plus a $25,000
loan from her parents and rough-
ly $30,000 held over from prior
elections, she couldnt compete.
Theres no question that mon-
ey talks in politics, Musto Car-
roll said. I was never a politician,
so fundraising was not a priority

HAZLE TWP. The robbery
was carefully planned as an am-
bush.
Two men concealed their
faces and set up barrels and
cones outside a PNC Bank
branch to prevent customers
from directly driving up to the
automated-teller machine and
after-hours deposit box.
Customers had to leave their
cars to conduct their transac-

A 61-year-old woman who is a
manager at a Turkey Hill became
the victim to their plan.
State police Trooper Kenneth
Houck Jr. said Thursday a man

a pellet gun striking her in the
face before demanding the
stores deposit just before10 a.m.
Nov. 20, a Sunday.
After getting the money bag,
the man shot her second time in
the head, Houck said.
The cones were set up at 5
a.m. and you see two individu-

took place at 10 a.m. Inthose five
hours, there was some ATM ac-

Record-smashing rainfall and a
historic Susquehanna River flood
level this year may be a prelude of
what toexpect inthe future.
Climate experts in a teleconfe-
rence call Thursday warned about
continuing extreme weather
events caused by pollution in the
atmosphere. At least 148 weather
records were broken in Pennsylva-
nia in2011.
Locally, rainfall recorded at the
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Interna-
tional Airport is 58.5 inches with
three weeks left in the year, sur-
passingthe oldrecordof 53.7inch-
es set in1948.
The old rainfall record was bro-
ken on Nov. 1. Northeastern Penn-
sylvania was hit by two tropical
storms in late August and early
September, causing the Susque-
hanna River in Wilkes-Barre to
crestat42.6feetonSept. 9, nearly2
feet above the old record of 40.9
feet onJune 24, 1972.

he sexually assaulted a woman
over a 10-year-period was sen-
tenced Wednesday to 25 to 50
years in prison.
Ralph E. Lewis, 34, was sen-
tenced on charges including
rape, aggravated indecent as-
sault, incest and sexual assault
by Luzerne County Senior
Judge Kenneth Brown.
Lewis was charged with as-
saulting the now-27-year-old
woman beginning when she was
8 in 1993. The assaults resulted
in the birth of two children.
The judge said Lewis meets
the criteria of a sexually violent
predator, and must register his
address under Megans Law for
his entire life.

Casey backs LIHEAP
U.S. Senator Bob Casey, D-
Scranton, has cosponsored a
bipartisan bill to prevent drastic
cuts in the Low Income Home
Energy Assistance Program, or
LIHEAP, the main federal pro-
gram that helps low-income
families and seniors on fixed
incomes with their energy bills.
Last year Congress provided a
total of $4.7 billion in LIHEAP
funds, but the administration
has proposed a 45 percent cut as
part of efforts to control spend-
ing, according to a release from
Casey. That would reduce the
allocation to $2.57 billion in
2012.
The proposed legislation
would maintain funding at $4.7
billion. The release said the
program provided energy assist-
ance to 8.9 million households
last year an increase of 54
percent since 2008. A record 9.4
million households are projected
to request assistance next year.

WASHINGTON The U.S. House on
Thursday passed a bill imposing a ban on a
group of synthetic drugs, including those
often labeled bath salts, that can provoke
extremepsychoticreactions andviolent be-
havior.
The Synthetic Drug Control Act was ap-
proved 317-98.
While states including Pennsylvania
have passed similar bath salts bans and the
federal Drug Enforcement Agency earlier
this year approved a temporary emergency
banonthe drugs, U.S. Rep. TomMarino, R-
LycomingTownship, saidanationwideban
is needed. It takes an illegal drug out of le-
gitimate retail stores that is killing people,
that is killing our young people, Marino
said.
The bill surpassed the two-thirds major-
ity needed because it was brought to the
floor under rules allowing for expedited
passage, but 82 Democrats and 16 Repub-
licans voted no. Some
lawmakers said they
feared the bill was over-
ly broad and would in-
terfere with scientific
and medical research.
But Marinosaidinan
interview before the
vote that, There is no
known reason scientifi-
cally or medically that
there is any use for this
drugother thandanger-
ously getting high.
Asimilar measure is pending in the Sen-
ate, and Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, says
he hopes action will be taken soon.
These dangerous substances pose a tre-
mendous risk to our public health, Casey
said via email after the House vote. I am
encouragedthat theHousehastakenaction
and am hopeful that the Senate will move
quickly to pass the legislation I co-spon-
sored to crack down on these deadly drugs
because there is
no time to waste
in this fight.
The legisla-
tion bans chem-
ical compounds,
such as mephe-
drone used in
synthetic drugs
that are com-
monly sold as
bath salts or
plant food and
are essentially substitutes for cocaine, ac-
cording to the office of Rep. Lou Barletta,
R-Hazleton, alsoa proponent of theban. Al-
sobannedare chemical compounds that af-
fect the brain much as marijuana does.
Bath salts destroy many lives in North-
eastern Pennsylvania and beyond because
those who would make them, sell them,
and use them exploited a loophole in the
law, Barletta said in a statement after the
vote.
Incidents of people being sickened or
killed by using bath salts use and engaging
inviolent behaviorwhenhighonthemhave
been on the rise in Pennsylvania and else-
where.
Authorities in Luzerne County saw an
immediatedropinincidentsafterPresident
Judge Thomas F. Burke Jr. in April granted
a permanent injunction banning the sale of
bath salts containing certain chemicals
within the county.
The American Association of Poison
Control Centers says that as of Oct. 31, poi-
soncontrol centers across the countryhave
taken 5,626 calls about exposure to bath
salts, compared to 303 calls during all of
2010.
The association says that the products
have nothing to do with bathing, but con-
tainchemicals that seemtomimic cocaine,
LSD, MDPV and methamphetamine, and
creates a very severe paranoia that some-
times causes users toharmthemselves and
others, the association says.

KINGSTON Budget cuts in Washington,
D.C., dont bode well for local housing author-
ities or the low-income families that depend
on them for affordable places to live.
Dave Fagula, executive director of the Lu-
zerne County Housing Authority, told the
board on Thursday Congress recently passed
a 2012 budget for the U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development, which
funds the programs and operations of housing
authorities.
Voucher renewal funds were increased
slightly, which is good news for the author-
itys Section 8 voucher program, Fagula said.
He thinks the authority will receive enough
funding to support all the 1,115 current vouch-
ers for Section 8 housing, in which low-in-
come households receive vouchers to pay part
of their rent to participating landlords.
The bad news is that HUD continues to
underfund administrative fees for housing au-
thorities. Last year, the authority received on-
ly 83 cents on the dollar for administration,
compared to HUDs own formula for what
authorities need to operate administratively,
Fagula said.
He said HUD received administrative fund-
ing of $1.5 billion in 2010, $1.47 billion for
2011 and, for 2012, only $1.35 billion.
That translates to an approximate $125,000
cut about 20 percent for the authority.
Right now, we only have four people as-
signed to our rental assistance program and
at one time we had as many as seven, Fagula
said. And theres no relief on any of the ad-
ministrative work we have to do. We still have
to do 1,115 re-exams of income, we still have
to inspect 1,115 units every year, do all the
paperwork associated with it and everything
else.
Fagula said a HUD study showed that na-
tionally there is a $25 billion backlog in hous-
ing authority modernization needs, which
cover things such as replacement of roofs,
windows, sidewalks and fixtures.
Despite the need, modernization funding
for the county authority was reduced to $1.68
million this year from about $2 million last
year, and Fagula said he expects the funding
to dip to about $1.5 million for 2012.

WILKES-BARRE ALuzerne Coun-
ty judge on Thursday ruled in favor of
The Citizens Voice newspaper in a def-
amation case that was filed by an area
businessman.
The ruling by Judge Joseph Van Jura
in a case filed by Thomas Joseph Sr. ne-
gates a $3.5 million verdict that was
originally entered in 2006 against the
newspaper by former Judge Mark Cia-
varella.
That verdict was overturned in 2009
by the state Superior Court based on
evidence the case had been improperly
steered to Ciavarella by former Judge
Michael Conahan, who was Ciavarel-
las co-defendant in a corruption case
filed in 2009. Both judges are currently
serving lengthy federal prison sentenc-
es related to that case.
Joseph and his son, Thomas Joseph
Jr., filed suit against the newspaper in
2002, claiming their reputations were
damaged by a series of articles publish-
ed in 2001. The men said the articles,
which cited anonymous sources, false-
ly alleged that Joseph was under inves-
tigation for utilizing two of his busi-
nesses tolaunder moneyfor reputedlo-
cal mobster William Billy DElia and
others.
Van Jura heard testimony during a
non-jury trial held in May. In his ruling,
the judge did not directly address the
issue of whether the articles contained
false information. The verdict was
based on Van Juras determination that
Joseph and his son did not suffer any
financial or other harm as a result of
the articles.
Under state law, persons filing a def-
amation claim must show that the in-
formation reported was false and that
the publication of the information im-
paired their reputation and/or result-
ed in financial harm.
Van Jura said he did not find to be
credible the testimony of Thomas Jo-
seph Sr. or the junior Joseph that the
articles damaged their reputations.
Joseph Sr. provide no, or insuffi-
cient, evidence, beyond his own testi-
mony, that anyone in his community
cared about his alleged ties to orga-
nized crime, his long friendship with
reputed mobster DElia or the fact that
he was being investigated, Van Jura
said. To the contrary, witnesses who
testified for Joseph Sr. testified une-
quivocally that nothing in the article
causedthemtohave a lesser viewof Jo-
sephs reputation.
Van Jura made a similar finding for
Thomas Joseph Jr., saying he present-
ed no witnesses who said they had a
lesser opinion of himbased on the arti-
cles.
Timothy Hinton, attorney for The
Citizens Voice, applauded the judges
decision.
It has takennearly10years toobtain
a fair and just verdict in this case, Hin-
ton said.
George Croner, attorney for the Jo-
sephs, did not return a phone message
Thursday.

BELLEFONTE Former
Penn State assistant football
coach Jerry Sandusky emerged
froman overnight jail stay Thurs-
day after posting bail on new
charges that he sexually abused
two additional boys, including
one who said Sandusky assault-
ed him in his basement while his
cries for help went unheeded.
Sandusky was driven from the
Centre County jail to his home in
the back seat of a gray sedan in
the middle of a three-car convoy.
The former coach kept his gaze
straight ahead, clutching a ma-
nila envelope, during the short
car ride.
He then went inside without
answering questions from re-
porters.
Sandusky was arrested
Wednesday and charged with 12
new child sex abuse counts in-
volving two new alleged victims.
In all, he faces more than 50
charges. He has maintained his
innocence.
Sandusky secured his release
using $200,000 in real estate
holdings and a $50,000 certified
check provided by his wife, Dot-
tie, according to online court re-
cords. He will be subject to elec-
tronic monitoring under the
terms of his release.
The new allegations against
Sandusky were detailed in grand
jury report released Wednesday
that alleges the former coach
used the charity he founded to
gain access to at-risk boys, then
use gifts to groomthemfor even-
tual sexual contact.
In interviews after his initial
arrest last month, Sandusky de-
nied sexually assaulting children
but acknowledged showering
and engaging in horseplay
with them.
The latest accusers are the
ninth and 10th alleged victims
described in grand jury reports
that claim Sandusky befriended
and then molested boys he met
through The Second Mile char-
ity.
One of the new accusers said
Sandusky kept him in a base-
ment bedroom during overnight
visits to Sanduskys home, forced
him to perform sex acts and as-
saulted him.
The victimtestified that on at
least one occasion he screamed
for help, knowing that Sandus-
kys wife was upstairs, but no one
ever came to help him, the
grand jury report said.
Sandusky was charged last
month with abusing eight boys,
some on campus, over 15 years.

STATE COLLEGE The
wife of ex-Penn State assistant
coach Jerry Sandusky said
Thursday that her husband is
innocent of the child sex abuse
allegations against himand that
his accusers are making up their
stories.
Dottie Sanduskys comments
were the first she has made since
her husband was arrested last
month and accused of molesting
boys he met
through a char-
ity he founded
for troubled
youth.
She released
the statement
through her
husbands law-
yer a day after a grand jury report
said one alleged victimscreamed
in vain for her to help himwhile
Sandusky attacked himin a base-
ment bedroom.
Dottie Sandusky said she is
devastated by the accusations
and that no such incident oc-
curred.
I amso sad anyone would
make such a terrible accusation
which is absolutely untrue, she
said. We dont knowwhy these
young men have made these false
accusations, but we want every-
one to knowthey are untrue.
She added that she and her
husband love children and have
always tried to help and care for
them, and would never do any-
thing to hurt them.

WASHINGTON
Payroll tax tiff continues
T
he Senate rejected dueling Demo-
cratic and Republican plans for
extending the Social Security payroll
tax on Thursday as partisan skirmish-
ing continued over a cornerstone of
President Barack Obamas plan for
breathing life back into the American
job market.
House Speaker John Boehner said
Thursday hes confident that Repub-
licans are ready to move on legislation
continuing a payroll tax cut, but the
GOP remained on a collision course
with Obama over a side issue.
Republicans want to couple contin-
uation of the cut with a provision that
would assure construction of an oil
pipeline from Canada to Texas a
move Obama has said would lead to a
veto.
The president said he would delay
his Hawaiian vacation and stay in
Washington as long as it takes to win
extensions of the payroll tax cut and
jobless benefits for the long-term un-
employed.
MOSCOW
Putin criticizes Clinton
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir
Putin, facing the possibility of nation-
wide protests against his rule, on
Thursday accused U.S. Secretary of
State Hillary Clinton of instigating
demonstrators in the wake of the dis-
puted parliamentary election.
The comments came as opposition
supporters largely stayed off the streets
after three nights of sizeable protests.
No protests were seen in Moscow and
only a small one where 10 people were
arrested was reported in St. Peters-
burg.
Putin, in televised remarks, accused
the U.S. of encouraging and funding
the Russians protesting the alleged
election fraud in Sundays elections.
TEHRAN, IRAN
Video of drone shown
Iranian state TV broadcast video
Thursday of what it said was the high-
tech U.S. drone that Tehran says its
forces downed earlier this week, and
lodged a diplomatic complaint over the
violation of its airspace.
The beige-colored drone appeared
intact and undamaged.
In Washington, Capt. John Kirby, a
Pentagon spokesman, said U.S. military
officials and others were studying the
imagery but would have no further
comment.
WASHINGTON
Holder told to fire people
Republican lawmakers told Attorney
General Eric Holder on Thursday to
fire some Justice Department sub-
ordinates over the flawed arms-traffick-
ing investigation called Operation Fast
and Furious.
At a House Judiciary Committee
hearing, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner of
Wisconsin said impeachment is an
option if Holder does not clean up this
mess quickly.
Sensenbrenner and other Repub-
licans hold the attorney general respon-
sible for the operation, in which federal
agents failed to track illicitly purchased
weapons that were later recovered in
Mexico and the U.S., many of them at
crime scenes.
The attorney general said it was
inexcusable for the Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to
use a controversial tactic known as
gun-walking in its effort to identify
and prosecute major arms trafficking
networks along the Southwest border.
The Justice Department has long pro-
hibited the tactic.

BLACKSBURG, Va. A gunman
killed a police officer in a Virginia Tech
parking lot Thursday and then appar-
ently shot himself to death nearby in a
baffling attack that shook up the cam-
pus nearly five years after it was the
scene of the deadliest shooting ram-
page in modern U.S. history.
The shooting took place on the same
day Virginia Tech officials were in
Washington, fighting a government
fine over their alleged mishandling of
the 2007 bloodbath where 33 people
were killed. Before it became clear that
the gunman in Thursdays attack was
dead, the school applied the lessons
learned during the last tragedy, locking
down the campus and using a high-tech
alert system to warn students and fac-
ulty members to stay indoors.
In light of the turmoil and trauma
and the tragedy suffered by this cam-
pus by guns, I can only say words dont
describe our feelings and theyre elu-
sive at this point in time, university
president Charles
Steger said. Our
hearts are broken
again for the fam-
ily of our police of-
ficer.
The officer was
killed after pulling
a driver over in a
traffic stop. The
gunman who
was not involved in
the traffic stop
walked into the
parking lot and
ambushed the offi-
cer. Police did not
knowwhat the mo-
tive was.
A law enforce-
ment official who
spoke on the con-
dition of anonymi-
ty confirmed the gunman was dead, but
wouldnt say how he died.
While authorities wouldnt confirm
specific details about the gunman, they
released a timeline of events.
At about 12:15 p.m., the officer called
in the traffic stop. After a few minutes
passed without hearing from the offi-
cer, dispatch tried to get in touch with
him, but didnt get a response. About 15
minutes later, police received the first
call from a witness who said an officer
had been shot at the Cassell Coliseum
parking lot and the gunman had fled on
foot.
Local, state and federal officials re-
sponded immediately. At 1p.m., an offi-
cer saw a suspicious man in a parking
lot known as The Cage. The man had a
gunshot wound and a gun was nearby.
Authorities said they responded to nu-
merous other calls of suspicious activ-
ity, but found that there were no other
threats and lifted the campus
lockdown, about four hours
after the initial alerts.
Asked if police were still
looking for the shooter, state
police Sgt. Robert Carpentie-
ri said: I think the investiga-
tors feel confident that weve
located the person. I cant
give you specifics and I dont
want to confirm that but you
can kind of read between the
lines so I wont specifically
address that question.
The officer, who wasnt im-
mediately identified, had
served on the campus police
force for four years. State po-
lice were still investigating
whether he had been specifi-
cally targeted. The campus
force has about 50 officers
and 20 full- and part-time se-
curity guards.
At the time of the shoot-
ings, students were preparing
for exams when they were
suddenly told to hunker
down. Heavily armed officers
swarmed the campus as caravans of
SWAT vehicles and other police cars
with emergency lights flashing pa-
trolled nearby.
A lot of people, especially toward
the beginning were scared, said Jared
Brumfield, a 19-year-old freshman from
Culpeper, Va., who was locked in the
Squires Student Center.
The university sent updates about
every 30 minutes, regardless of wheth-
er they had any new information,
school spokesman Mark Owczarski
said.
Harry White, 20, a junior physics ma-
jor, said he was in line for a sandwich at
a restaurant in a campus building when
he received the text message alert.
White said he didnt panic, thinking
instead about a false alarmabout a pos-
sible gunman that locked down the
campus in August. White used an in-
door walkway to go to a computer lab
in an adjacent building, where he
checked news reports.
I decided to just check to see how
serious it was. I saw its actually some-
one shooting someone, not something
false, something that looks like a gun,
White said.
The school was a bit quieter than
usual because classes ended Wednes-
day. About 20,000 of the universitys
30,000 students were on campus when
the officer was shot. Exams, set to be-
gin Friday, were postponed.

WASHINGTON Texting
while driving increased 50 per-
cent last year and two out of 10
drivers say theyve sent text mess-
ages or emails while behind the
wheel despite a rush by states to
ban the practice, the National
Traffic Safety Administration said
Thursday
An annual study conducted in
2010 by the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration of
drivers observed at selected stop-
lights andintersections foundthat
at any given time just under 1per-
cent were texting or manipulating
hand-held devices, such as using a
Web-capable smart phone or cell
phone to view travel directions,
checke-mails or calendar appoint-
ments, or surf the Internet,
manual dialing, playing hand-held
games, and holding phones in
front of their faces. But the activ-
ity increased to .9 percent of driv-
ers, up from .6 percent the previ-
ous year.
The share of drivers speaking
into headsets was also up 9 per-
cent and had increased by the
same amount. But drivers talking
into hand-held cell phones re-
mained flat at 5 percent.
Eighteen percent of drivers said
theyve sent text messages or
emails while driving, according to
the results of a national telephone
survey by NHTSA of over 6,000
drivers aged 18 or older. The sur-
vey was conducted a year ago and
released Thursday. Among driv-
ers 21 to 24 years old, half said
theyve texted behind the wheel.
The survey also found that
most drivers will answer a phone
call while driving and most will
continue to drive after answering.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. AlabamaRepublicans who
pushed through the nations toughest law against ille-
gal immigrants are having second thoughts amid a
backlash from big business, fueled by the embarrass-
ing traffic stops of two foreign employees tied to the
states prized Honda and Mercedes plants.
The Republican attorney general is calling for some
of the strictest parts of it to be repealed.
Some Republican lawmakers say they now want to
make changes in the law that was pushed quickly
through the legislature.
Gov. Robert Bentley, who signed the law, said hes
contacting foreign executives to tell them they and
their companies are still welcome in Alabama.
We are not anti-foreigncompanies. We are very pro-
foreign companies, he said.
Luther Strange, the attorney general whos defend-
ingthe lawincourt, this weekrecommendedrepealing
sections that makeit acrimefor anillegal immigrant to
fail to carry registration documents and that require
public schools to collect information on the immigra-
tion status of students.
Both sections have been put on hold temporarily by
a federal court.
Two foreign workers for Honda and Mercedes were
recently stopped by police for failing to carry proof of
legal residency.
The cases were quickly dropped, but not without
lots of international attention that Alabama officials
didnt want.

SCRANTON In a 5-year-old
case spanning two counties, a
Dunmore man and his wife filed
suit in federal court Wednesday
alleging the man was injured at
the Pittston Tomato Festival
when a National Guard Humvee
on display rolled into the crowd
James Brennan and his wife,
Mary Ann, contend the husband
and his mother-in-law, Marian
Carter a third plaintiff in the
case attended the Tomato Fes-
tival as business invitees in Au-
gust 2006.
AHumvee owned by the Penn-
sylvania Army National Guard
based in West Pittston rolled
from its display into a crowd of
people, including James Bren-
nan and Carter. The vehicle was
supposed to be under the control
of Lester William Maxwell, the
suit says.
The Humvee rolled forward
down an incline off the curb and
rolled into spectators who were
present at the Pittston Tomato
Festival, according to the com-
plaint. Mr. Brennan was injured
as he was trying to hold back the
Hummer as it pushed people
down hill, while Carter was in-
jured after being knocked to the
ground in the melee of people
fleeing from the rolling Hum-
mer.
The suit contends the incident
resulted from negligence by the
National Guard, the Tomato Fes-
tival and Maxwell and seeks un-
specified compensatory damag-
es.
The complaint filed Wednes-
day mirrors one filed in federal
court in August 2008. The case
had originated in Lackawanna
County Court but was moved to
federal court because of the invol-
vement of the National Guard.
After 19 months of legal ma-
neuvers, U.S. District Judge
James Munley ordered a stay of
the case until the plaintiffs ex-
hausted their administrative re-
medies and file another com-
plaint.
Wednesdays paperwork

PLYMOUTH TWP. The
townships proposed2012 budget
of $3.8 million is more than five
times bigger than the 2011spend-
ing plan of $710,000, an increase
due to the considerable damage
from several floods this year.
But the budget includes no tax
increase, Supervisor Chairwo-
man Gale Conrad said at the su-
pervisors meeting Monday
night. The Federal Emergency
Management Agency will fund
the additional expense to repair
damage fromfloodinginJuly, Au-
gust andSeptember, accordingto
township officials.
The total cost for the flood re-
covery projects is estimated to be
between $3 million and $4 mil-
lion.
The pro-
posed spending
plan is open for
public review
until the super-
visors vote on
whether to
adopt the bud-
get at a meeting
Dec. 27 at 10:30
a.m.
The current
real estate tax
rate is 0.756of a
mill, with 0.079
of a mill for gen-
eral purposes,
0.081 for fire
protection,
0.046for street lights and0.55for
unfunded debt services.
Also at the supervisors meet-
ing, officials said the work on
Mountain Road, as well as the de-
bris collectionfromthe floodmit-
igation, has been completed. The
FEMA funding for the disaster
cleanup came to $450,000. Also,
12 project worksheets have al-
ready been submitted to FEMA.
There are six to eight additional
worksheets that will be sent infor
payment, as well.
The borough will send a letter
of intent to the state, as well as to
FEMA, today asking for assist-
ance on behalf of the homes that
sustained damage from flooding
but fell below the 50 percent
damage level. The homes with
structural damage in excess of 50
percent are currently awaiting an
official grant, which is expected
to arrive before the end of the
month.
Conrad said the borough also
would like to redo the sewer sys-
tem and is looking for the fund-
ing.
Officials announced the geo-
technology and hydrology study
of Tilbury Terrace will start with-
in the next couple of days.
The study is expected to be
completed within the next two
weeks. After the study, the sub-
base for the Tilbury Terrace reno-
vationwill begin. Pavingis sched-
uled for next spring.
Alan Baranski of NEPA Alli-
ance, noting that on Nov. 8, the
boroughs home rule charter
passed, reported the government
study has dissolved as of Nov. 15.

HARRISBURG Offering no
reasons for its action, the State
Government Committee on
Thursday postponed release of
Pennsylvanias congressional re-
districting maps until Monday.
We are still working out some
details, said Steve Miskin,
House GOP spokesman. The
House, Senate and governor are
workingtogethertoget thisdone.
Unfortunately, each change, no
matter how slight, has a tremen-
dous ripple effect. We are making
progress and hope to have a map
Monday to be unveiled.
The Legislative Reapportion-
ment Committee, thespecial pan-
el in charge of state legislative re-
districting, isslatedtovoteonafi-
nal plan Monday.
Theofficeof StateGovernment
Committee ChairmanDaryl Met-
calfe said the only information it
had at the moment was that the
committee staff was told to with-
drawthe bill.
Theredistrictingbill is nolong-
er on the committee schedule,
Miskin said. Candidates running
in the 2012 election may start cir-
culating their nominating pet-
itions on Jan. 24.
InareleasefromthePennsylva-
nia Democratic Party, spokesper-
son Lindsay Fritchman said the
process has already been criti-
cized for its lack of speed and
transparency, and this extension
whichwill pushthevotes onthe
newmapintothe verylast days of
the legislative session aggra-
vates those complaints.
Thesestallingtactics fromthe
Republicans in Harrisburg are
just the latest in a partisan redis-
trictingscheme that puts protect-
ingRepublicans beforerepresent-
ing Pennsylvanians, Fritchman
said. From all reports, the maps
will be heavily gerrymandered,
with districts snaking halfway
across the state and carving up
communities to pack in Republi-
can voters.
Erik Arneson, communica-
tions and policy director for Sen-
ate Majority Leader Dominic Pi-
leggi, said the process has been
openandtransparent fromthebe-
ginning. He said public hearings
were held earlier in the year.
Mullery upset with plan
State Rep. Gerald Mullery, D-
Newport Township, challenged
state Rep. Tarah Toohil, R-Butler
Township, toop-
pose the redis-
tricting plan
that splits the
Hazleton area.
If the legisla-
tive redistrict-
ing plan is ap-
proved Monday,
Mullery said, it
will split the
people of the
116th Legisla-
tive District into
two districts.
Mullery said
that despite the
organization
and cooperative effort provided
by local government officials and
private enterprise, Greater Ha-
zleton has struggled to obtain
county, state and federal funds.
How can these struggles be
eased by fracturing the regions
representation in Harrisburg?
Mullery asked. Ms. Toohils si-
lenceontheredistrictingplanhas
been deafening.
ReachedlaterThursday, Toohil
saidinastatement that redistrict-
ingiscontrolledbyafive-member
commission in Harrisburg and in
addition to the 116th, 252 other
seats are in flux.
I am deeply saddened at the
potential lossof anyof mymunici-
palities, Toohil wrote in her
emailed response. I have contin-
ually fought to keepall of my con-
stituents. Boththe Mayor of Free-
land and the Mayor of West Ha-
zleton have circulated petitions
tokeepmeastheir staterepresen-
tative, which is an acknowledg-
ment that I am not afraid of hard
work and that Imnot a lazy legis-
lator.

pulled an ad meant to warn peo-

The ad featured an image of a
womans legs ona bathroomfloor
with her underwear pulled down

couldnt say no.
Aspokeswoman for the Liquor

pulled Wednesday evening after

Some critics say the ad blamed

other experts on rape say it was a
frank but necessary discussion of

HAZLETON City Council
tried but failed to adopt the 2012
budget at the councils meeting
Wednesday night.
The delay occurred because
council passed a budget but re-
jectedtheproposedreal estateor-
dinance, 3-1, with Council Presi-
dent James Perry the only affirm-
ative vote.
Jack Mundie, Chris Puza and
Evelyn Graham voted no. Karin
Cabell was not present.
You cannot pass a budget
without passing a tax ordinance
to fund it, Mayor Joseph Yan-
nuzzi said, and Perry admitted
the real estate issue would not be
resolved at Monday nights meet-
ing, despite the budget passing.
Solicitor Chris Slusser advised
council it must address the situa-
tion before the end of the meet-
ing. He said the budget and real
estate ordinance must be passed
before Jan. 1.
Without the passage of a 2012
real estate ordinance, there will
be no ordinance in place, said
Slusser, responding to a question
as to whether the city might re-
vert to the 2011budget if no 2012
budget was passed by Jan. 1.
Had the proposed real estate
tax ordinance passed as written,
total taxes would have risen from
the current 2.83 mills to 3.23
mills in2012, at anaverage cost of
$20 to a homeowner with a prop-
erty valued at $50,000.
One mill equals $1of tax for ev-
ery $1,000 of assessed value.
Mundie was concerned about
how the increase would affect
residents. He also questioned in-
completefigures for 2011andpro-
jections for 2012.
Mary Ellen Lieb, city adminis-
trator, assured Mundie the fig-
ures were reasonable, even
though some year-end figures
were still outstanding. Lieb also
said the amount of state and fed-
eral grants was not yet known.
Concluding Monday nights
meeting and providing council
with time to reconsider both the
budget and the real estate tax
rate, council rescindedits vote re-
jecting the tax rate andtabledthe
budget on the second reading.
Council next meets on Dec. 19
at 5:30 p.m.
In another matter, Pennsylva-
nia Economy League representa-
tives presented a report about a
five-year projection of budget is-
sues from 2012 to 2016.
Joe Boyle and Jerry Cross
noted the flat value of real estate
in the city was a concern.
Although the PEL report has
yet to be finalized, PEL did indi-
cate that revenue would need to
be generated over the next five
years in order to meet increased
service and public-safety costs.

Council adopts then tables

PLAINS TWP. Repairs to
the transmission line shot out
over the weekend will take an
estimated four weeks to com-
plete and cost more than
$100,000, said the general man-
ager of WOLF-TV.
The 5-inch Heliax line failed
on Sunday after it was pierced
by three bullets from a high-
powered firearm, said Jon Cad-
man, general manager of the
FOX affiliate.
The affiliates owner New
Age Media has been scrambling
to restore over-the-air service
and received help Thursday to
temporarily broadcast signals
for FOX56 and My Network TV
(WQMY-TV) until the repairs
are made.
Cable systems receiving the
signals of affiliates FOX56, The
CW and My Network TV over
fiber optic lines were not affect-
ed by the damaged transmis-
sion line.
Crews are scheduled to climb
the broadcast tower on Penob-
scot Mountain the week of Dec.
19 to install a new line and ad-
ditional engineering tests will
follow, said Cadman.
Ill be pushing over $100,000
to fix this, he said.
Cadman also said he plans to
file a report with Hanover
Township police today about
the damage.
Neighbors in the area of the
tower heard what sounded like
someone target shooting on
Saturday, he said. The bullets
struck the copper and brass
line within a foot of each other
at a height of approximately
700 feet and caused it to lose
pressure. Approximately 100
feet of the 850-foot line caught
on fire.
This is not random, said
Cadman.
He said he was able to locate
an identical length of tubing
from a supplier.
Just the parts alone cost
nearly $60,000, he said, add-
ing three crews of tower clim-
bers will cost more than
$40,000.
While awaiting the repairs,
New Age Media worked out ar-
rangements with Nexstar
Broadcasting Group and Mis-
sion Broadcasting to carry the
FOX and My Network TV affil-
iates.
FOX will be available on dig-
ital channel 28.2 and My Net-
work on digital channel 22.2,
according to the arrangement.
The companies worked to-
gether during the September
flooding when WBRE-TV was
forced to evacuate its Wilkes-
Barre studios. New Age Media
allowed WBRE-TV, the local
NBC affiliate, to broadcast from
its facilities on state Route 315
in Plains Township.
Cadman said he was grateful
to receive the support during
the period of unanticipated
broadcast interruption.
He also advised viewers to
make changes to receive the
broadcasts.
Viewers will need to rescan
their set-top box or TV to re-
ceive the new .2 from (chan-
nels) 22 and 28, said Cadman.

UNION TWP. Six-year-old
Lexy Moore wanted Monkey
bars! As her grandmother,
Shickshinny Mayor Beverly
Moore, drew other features she
hopes to see when the town
bounces back from September
floods, Lexy chirped Dont for-
get the dog park!
Borough Fire Chief Kevin Mor-
ris offered a more concrete pro-
posal: Put up a new building to
house consolidated city services
mayor, council and fire depart-
ment -- under one roof. It was
added to a large drawing that he
and tablemate Kay Wolfe had
sketched, along with a casino on
the banks of the Susquehanna.
About 100 people participated
in an out-of-the-box community
visioning session Thursday eve-
ning in the Northwest Area High
School cafeteria, one of several
such events scheduled in coming
months to help the flood-ravaged
town devise a long-range plan for
recovery from the twin punches
of tropical storm Irene in August
and tropical storm Lee in Sep-
tember.
Pennsylvania Emergency Man-
agement Agency Director Glenn
Cannon told the crowd This is
the first time FEMA(The Federal
Emergency Management Agen-
cy) has taken on a project like
this, to do long-term recovery.
The evening began with vis-
itors milling around display
boards that listed questions in
eight broad categories such as
economic development and
mitigation. People could print
their answers on small yellow
sticky notes and press them onto
the boards.
Everyone then got a chance to
provide two words that explain
their vision for Shickshinny.
Those submissions were fed into
an Internet program that pre-
sents them as a word cloud,
with the most frequently used
words in the largest print. For
Shickshinny, the biggest words
were community, business
and family.
But the main exercise involved
groups discussing the boroughs
best assets, and sketching what
theywouldlike tosee ontosheets
of paper that stretched across
each table. Along with Lexys
monkey bars, people drew bike
paths, boat launches, excursion
trains and Elvis Presley. Resident
BrianCaverly explainedthe town
is a bit famous for, well, Elvis
sightings.
Each then presented its top
ideas. Kay Wolfe suggested
bringingbackbusinesses bymak-
ing all downtown buildings have
parking on the first floor thus
leaving nothing to damage in the
next flood.
Its a great idea! Mayor
Moore shouted.
Donna Krothe-Goobic recalled
a borough with two hardware
stores, three grocery stores, a
kids shop, a movie house, a bowl-
ing alley, then suggested creat-
ing a tourist industry with the
recreational opportunities the re-
gion offers.
Use the river for all its worth,
fishing, boating, camping,
Krothe-Goobic said. We have
Native American sites, we have
trails, we have cliffs that can be
climbed, we have trapping, we
have hunting. All this would revi-
talize the town, and we might
even need more than one pizza
shop.
Words, pictures create visions for Shickshinny
Event encourages flood-hit
town to think out of the box
in fashioning a comeback.

EXETER With an acknowl-
edgement of the challenges
ahead and a plea for taxpayers
to take an active part in meet-
ings by providing input and
comment, the Wyoming Area
School Board seated four new
board members and a new
president Thursday.
Newly elected school direc-
tors Mary Louise Degnan, Carl
Yorina, Deanna Farrell and El-
izabeth Gober-Mangan were
sworn in, as was returning
board member Estelle Cam-
penni. The newly seated board
then elected Frank Casarella as
its new president and Campen-
ni as vice president.
Campenni and Casarella ad-
dressed the board and audi-
ence, noting both the potential
and the challenges ahead.
Campenni said she felt
great excitement as she sat
surrounded by colleagues of
like mind and spirit.
Each member of the board is
a force to be reckoned with,
Campenni said, but the board
members are united in their
commitment to work together
and strive for transparency.
Casarella listed reduced
state and local property tax
revenues, building repairs and
new contracts for teachers and
administrators among the chal-
lenges facing the new board.
Our job is going to be a
tough one, Casarella said
shortly after he announced ex-
panded public participation in
decisions made by board com-
mittees.
Committees made up of
multiple board members and
appropriate school district per-
sonnel will meet and report
when necessary at school
board work sessions, Casarella
said, allowing the public to
comment and provide input
before the voting meetings the
following week.
We hope that the general
public attends our work ses-
sions and gives input so we
can listen to you and use that
information to make our deci-
sions, Casarella said.
The board will meet for a
work session on the third
Tuesday of each month, with a
voting meeting on the follow-
ing Tuesday, with the excep-
tion of this month, when a
combined work session and
voting meeting will be held on
Dec. 19.

WILKES-BARRE The city
has fined former mayoral candi-
date Betsy Summers $1,000 for
alleged violations of the Rental
Dwelling/Residence and Tenant
Registration ordinances.
According to the citys Depart-
ment of Code Enforcement, Sum-
mers was fined $500 for oper-
ation of a rental unit without a li-
cense and $500 for not having a
property manager.
Summers property is located
at 52 S. Welles St.
They can go to hell, was
Summers response when con-
tacted Thursday. Theres noth-
ing wrong with my building. I
guess I didnt follow some rule,
and I let a tenant move in before
the unit was inspected. They will
see me in City Hall soon.
Summers ran as a Libertarian
Party candidate in the November
general election, finishing third
behind Mayor Tom Leighton, a
Democrat, and Republican Lisa
Cope.
Its one thing if your property
is uninhabitable or dangerous,
Summers said. My building was
just approved for Section 8 hous-
ing. As far as a property manager
I live in the city; in fact, I live
across the street fromthe proper-
ty in question. That rule, as I un-
derstand it, is for absentee land-
lords.
I want a jury trial; thats what I
want, she said.
Summers said she received the
notice of the fines Thursday. The
letter states any person ag-
grieved by a decision or action of
the inspector may appeal for a re-
view of the decision to the Board
of Appeals within 10 days after
the filing.
Each appeal must include a
non-refundable fee of $100, paya-
ble to the city.
Oh, I will appeal this, Sum-
mers said. Its ridiculous.

IN BRIEF
Jerry and Sons Market, West Main
Street, Nanticoke, recently hosted
the Nanticoke Historical Society for
a book signing in conjunction with
the release of its new book Images
of America-Nanticoke by Chester
Zaremba.
The book is one of the latest in
the Arcadia Publishing Companys
series on local history.
The book contains a large number
of previously unpublished photo-
graphs from the Nanticoke Histor-
ical Societys collection. It is avail-
able for purchase through many
local commercial outlets or from the
societys office at the Samantha Mill
House, 495 E. Main St., Nanticoke.
Julianna Zarzycki, president of
the society, lauded the owners of
Jerry and Sons Market for their
support of the society and its ef-
forts to preserve the history of Nan-
ticoke. At the book signing, from

The Democrat from Illinois and other party

renewal of a payroll tax break. They met recently in a closed-door
meeting with President Obama, who has traveled to Scranton and other
communities to campaign for Congress to extend the tax break, which is
set to expire at years end.
Congress, Postal Service
have failed to deliver
N
ow that its been announced that our
first-class mail delivery will slow and
overnight mail will be nonexistent, I
suppose we will still receive our bulk
mail with no interruptions.
The U.S. Postal Service probably would
not be losing money if it would raise the
price of the bulk mail. There would be less
of it and less for me to throw away! Talk
about not being eco-friendly!
A few postal workers I talked with be-
lieve that Congress has something to do
with this mess. I should have known Con-
gress had its fingers in it somehow.
I am of the opinion that if we did away
with congressional elections and had a
national lottery, this country would be
better off. These people in office with all
their experience are getting nothing done,
so lets pick someone by lottery for four
years. Something has to give in this coun-
try, and I dont want it to be hardworking,
struggling Americans. Theyve given
enough.

Dont remove religion
from hospital displays
I
thank Maria Thubbron of Nanticoke for
her letter to the editor (Worker: Holi-
day policies compromise my religion,
Nov. 23) disclosing the disturbing email
sent to employees of an area hospital. The
email listed acceptable neutral seasonal
holiday decorations of snowmen, holly and
sleighs, but not Santa, angels and men-
orahs.
She wrote that because Santa depicted
Saint Nicholas he could not be used, as in
previous years, to bring smiles to sick
children as they received small gifts. I
agree with her that in this Judeo-Christian
community, our religious freedom is being
taken from us.
What right does a hospital CEO or board
have to restrict the joyous celebrations of
Christmas and Hanukkah, especially in a
hospital environment of sickness and suf-
fering?
I wish I knew the name of the hospital,
because I dont ever want to go there.

Lack of pre-Agnes photos
saddens local chronicler
I
n 2008 The Times Leader printed a
letter to the editor in which I asked for
pictures of Public Square and the sur-
rounding vicinity before the Great Fire of
1970 and the Agnes Flood in 1972. I
couldnt find any photos, even black-and-
white ones, online.
In the past three years, I have queried
the historical society, prominent area pho-
tographers and longtime salesclerks at the
few mid-century businesses still in oper-
ation. Seemingly nothing but pictures of
Agnes remain.
Now with Wilkes-Barres Hotel Sterling
in the news in a way none of us would have
wanted, it would be good for local history
buffs to begin keeping track of the small
businesses that open and close, sometimes
in less than a year. As the singers Simon
and Garfunkel said, I have a photograph.
A photograph means so much.
I also would suggest that the over-50
crowd consider a baby boom department
of the historical society. Baby boomers are
living history.
Wilkes-Barre was a grand place. Do not
let the 20th century fade undocumented.

Reader recommends
works of poet Stone
M
ore than a decade ago, poet Ruth
Stone came to the Penn State Wilkes-
Barre campus as a featured reader in
the annual poetry weekend seminar under
the direction of professor David Chin. She
was, in my opinion, the best of many fine
poets to appear at PSU over the years, and
she left an indelible impression.
Ruth recently passed away in Vermont.
Though she now belongs to the ages, her
poetry will live on, enjoyed primarily for
its simplicity and accessibility. In the
words of Sandra Gilbert: By turns sly,
subtle, exuberant, bawdy, and bitter and
always unflinchingly honest Ruth Stone
is one of poetrys wise women, one of our
ages fiercest, purest, most original poets.
If you have any interest in poetry and
have never read Ruth Stone, by all means
indulge. If you rarely read poetry but are
open to a new experience, my recommen-
dation is the same. Her titles are readily
available in bookstores and online. You
wont be sorry.

Dont be complacent;
become involved citizen
T
his country will not be the country you
once knew if you do/say nothing. Now
is the time to let your voice be heard.
Find out for what your elected repre-
sentatives are voting and write to them; let
them know where you stand on those
issues. Write letters to the editor. Get
involved and speak up for your freedoms.
Find out who is running for office, for what
they stand and then vote.
I am so sad that we have been so com-
placent and lazy. We truly have let down
the next generation. By our silence, we are
allowing small groups of people destroy
our America.
Do you remember America, the greatest
country in the world? Great, because we
are a Christian nation that lives by the
Constitution and the Bill of Rights, which
were written by great men who placed
their trust in the wisdom of the holy Bible.
America, whose values, society and in-
stitutions have largely been shaped by
biblical principles.
Do you remember our national motto:
In God We Trust? Well, do we trust him?
Do you realize that people are trying to
remove this motto from our country?
Weve already let one person remove
prayer from schools and the Ten Com-
mandments from our courtrooms. Our
freedom of speech is now in question at
graduations, etc.
We need to get back to the Bible, our
foundation, and start standing up for the
freedoms and liberties God has bestowed
on us.

Writer fears Washington
taking away freedoms
W
hat is going on in Washington? They
are stripping our Constitution, and
we are losing our freedom every day.
Senate Bill 1031 violates the Posse Com-
itatus Act. It would let the military work
with the local police. This is unconstitu-
tional and scary. There also is a provision
that stripped the Habeas Corpus Act of
1679, wherein a person unlawfully de-
tained cannot be ordered to be prosecuted.
That protects you from illegally being
thrown into prison. So if the government
calls you a terrorist, it can lock you away
without a reason indefinitely through
the military without a trial or attorney.
Yes, right here in the USA.
We are going to need the people to fight
to protect our rights. What is it going to
take to wake up everyone?

CIENTISTS AT NASA
think they have found
something like a twin
for the Earth.
Thanks to the Kepler tele-
scope, launched on a planet-
hunting mission in 2009, they
have discovered a planet suffi-
ciently like Earth perhaps to be
hospitable to life, even intelli-
gent life.
The new planet, unpoetical-
ly called Kepler-22b, is located
in a place known by a poetic
metaphor, theGoldilocks zone,
where the porridge of life is not
too hot and not too cold. Its
surface temperature is a pleas-
ant 72 degrees, and it revolves
around a star that could be our
suns twin, a year there being
290 days.
The only problemis that this
planet is 2.4 times the size of
Earth and scientists fear that it
might be covered with gas or
liquid. Our twin could turn out
to be all wet.
Unfortunately, no family re-
union is likely. Kepler-22b is
600 light years away. But ab-
sence makes the heart grow
fonder and more curious.
Does Kepler-22b have a Con-
gress that shows signs of intel-
ligent life?

Pittston Area School Board
Member Ross Latona moved
Tuesday night to repeal a year-
old teacher hiring policy, and
after a 6-3 vote in favor, new
board President Anthony Gua-
riglia said they drop-
ped the policy be-
cause I dont see that
people are following
it.
The obvious re-
sponse is this:
Shouldnt the board
take steps to make
sure it is followed?
But this affront to
Pittston Area tax-
payers runs far deep-
er than abdication of
responsibility.
Latona and Guari-
glia must think or
at least hope resi-
dents have forgotten
all that transpired, beginning
with the districts public cor-
ruption fiasco. To disabuse
them of that notion, heres a re-
cap.
In April 2009, Pittston Area
Superintendent Ross Scaranti-
no agreedto pleadguilty to fed-
eral charges that he had accept-
ed a bribe in exchange for help-
ing a contractor get district
work. Scarantino served 13
months in prison.
Despite Scarantinos glaring
admission, the board couldnt
simply fire himand strip himof
pay and benefits. It had to work
out a deal to save the district
more than $300,000 that Sca-
rantino claimed he was due
thanks to an ambiguous con-
tract. The board then adopted
tougher language in adminis-
trative contracts to avoid the
embarrassment of giving po-
tential future crooks generous
perks for leaving the district to
serve their jail sentences.
After Scarantino signed a
plea agreement, boardmember
Joseph Oliveri sat before an an-
gry crowd and said with a
straight face that
he knew nothing
about any wrong-
doing. Four
months later, Ol-
iveri resigned
from the board
and agreed to
plead guilty to ac-
cepting a bribe for
helping a contrac-
tor get district
work.
In January of
this year, after
months of re-
search and discus-
sion, Pittston Area
adopted a new
teacher hiring policy designed
to objectively screen candi-
dates, reducingboardinfluence
and hopefully erasing the
districts image as nepotism-
central, thus taking another
step in restoring public trust.
But on Tuesday, the board
met to swear in new members
and reorganize, electing Guari-
glia as president and Latona as
vice president. They barely
took their seats when Latona
moved to repeal the hiring pol-
icy.
Taxpayers are left wondering
if the reforms so rigorously pur-
sued in the wake of Scarantino
and Oliveri will slowly unravel.

She saidThursday she knewit wouldtake consid-

name to become well-known, she said.
Salavantis took in a total of $33,365 fromindivid-

loans fromher parents, whichtotaled$205,000. She
also personally loaned the campaign $2,000.
Salavantis said she intends to hold several fun-
draisers once shes in office in hopes of paying back
the debt. She saidshe does not believe it wouldpose
a conflict should attorneys contribute as she would
not allowcampaign contributions to impact her de-

I hope I can pay back the contributors who
helped me along the way if possible. If not, they

The industry has long con-
tended that fracking is safe, but
environmentalists and some resi-
dents who live near drilling sites
say it has poisoned groundwater.
The EPA said its announce-
ment is the first step in a process
of opening up its findings for re-
view by the public and other sci-
entists.
EPAs highest priority re-
mains ensuring that Pavillion
residents have access to safe
drinking water, said JimMartin,
EPA regional administrator in
Denver. We look forward to hav-
ing these findings in the draft re-
port informed by a transparent
and public review process.
The EPA also emphasized that
the findings are specific to the
Pavillion area. The agency said
the fracking that occurred in Pa-
villion differed from fracking
methods used elsewhere in re-
gions with different geological
characteristics.
Kathryn Klaber, president of
the natural gas industry-backed
advocacy group Marcellus Shale
Coalition, said environmental
protection is critical to the indus-
try. She welcomed a review of
the report, adding scientists and
engineers in Wyoming will be
able to secure more facts.
However, it is entirely too
early in this process, given the
lack of peer-reviewed data, to ar-
rive at any kind of absolute con-
clusions, said Klaber.
The report drew a stronger re-
sponse from Tom Jiunta, a co-
founder the Gas Drilling Aware-
ness Coalition in Luzerne Coun-
ty that has been critical of the in-
dustrys practices in the
Marcellus Shale.
It confirms what weve been
saying all along, said Jiunta.
Weve seen hundreds of inci-
dents of water contamination
from fracking and it goes against
what the industry claims. In Pa-
villion the fracking occurred be-
low the level of the drinking wa-
ter aquifer and close to water
wells, the EPA said. Elsewhere,
drilling is more remote and
fracking occurs much deeper
than the level of groundwater
that would normally be used.
Environmentalists welcomed
the news of the EPA report, call-
ing it an important turning point
in the fracking debate.
This is an important first in-
dication there are potential prob-
lems with fracking that can im-
pact domestic water wells. Its I
think a clarion call to industry to
make sure they take a great deal
of care in their drilling practic-
es, said Steve Jones with the
Wyoming Outdoor Council.
Pavillion resident John Fen-
ton, chairman of the group Pavil-
lion Area Concerned Citizens,
applauded the EPA for listening
to the homeowners with contam-
inated water.
Those of us who suffer the
impacts from the unchecked de-
velopment in our community are
extremely happy the contamina-
tion source is being identified,
Fenton said.
Calgary, Alberta-based Encana
owns the Pavillion gas field. An
announced $45 million sale to
Midland, Texas-based Legacy
Reserves fell through last month
amid what Encana said were
Legacys concerns about the EPA
investigation.
Encana spokesman Doug
Hock said there was much to
question about the draft study.
The compounds EPA said
could be associated with frack-
ing, he said, could have had oth-
er origins not related to gas de-
velopment.
Those could just have likely
been brought about by contam-
ination in their sampling process
or construction of their well,
Hock said.
The low levels of hydrocar-
bons found in local water wells
likewise havent been linked to
gas development, and substanc-
es such as methane itself are nat-
urally occurring in the area.
There are still a lot of ques-
tions that need to be answered.
This is a probability and it is one
we believe is incorrect, Hock
said.
Sen. James Inhofe said the
study was not based on sound
science but rather on political
science.
Its findings are premature,
given that the Agency has not
gone through the necessary peer-
review process, and there are
still serious outstanding ques-
tions regarding EPAs data and
methodology, the Oklahoma
Republican said in a statement.
Wyoming last year became
one of the first states to require
oil and gas companies to publicly
disclose the chemicals used in
fracking. Colorado regulators are
considering doing the same.
The public and industry repre-
sentatives packed an 11-hour
hearing on the issue in Denver
on Monday. They all generally
supported the proposal but the
sticking point is whether trade
secrets would have to be dis-
closed and howquickly the infor-
mation would have to be turned
over.
And while the EPA empha-
sized the Wyoming findings were
highly localized, the report is
likely to reverberate.
The issue has been highly con-
tentious in New York, where
some upstate residents and poli-
ticians argue that the gas indus-
try will bring desperately needed
jobs while others demand a ban
on fracking to protect water sup-
plies. New York regulators
havent issued permits for gas
drilling with high-volume hy-
draulic fracturing in the Marcel-
lus Shale since they began an ex-
tensive environmental review in
2008.
Kate Sinding, an attorney with
the Natural Resources Defense
Council in NewYork City, said in
an email Thursday that the EPA
in Wyoming is now recognizing
what other experts and families
in fracking communities have
known for some time: Fracking
poses serious threats to safe
drinking water.

manager.
The two men picked Sunday
to commit the robbery, a day
when the bank branch on Sus-
quehanna Boulevard is closed.
The barrels and cones we-
rent there when the bank
closed that Saturday, Houck
said.
He said the men brought the
barrels and cones with them.
The banks surveillance cam-
eras recorded the men setting
up and repositioning the bar-
rels and cones at 4:55 a.m. It
wasnt until a few minutes be-
fore 10 a.m. that the woman
was confronted by a gun-wield-
ing man at the after-hours de-
posit box.
The woman was on her cell
phone talking to her fianc,
who listened to her screams.
Houck said that after she was
attacked, the woman got into
her car and followed the man,
who drove a white SUV, possi-
bly a Dodge Durango or Nitro.
The woman was expected to
recount her experience to re-
porters on Thursday, but Tur-
key Hill prohibits employees
from talking to the media.
The robber wore a dark hat, a
hooded sweatshirt with GAP
across the chest and blue jeans
with white fading on the legs.
The other suspect wasnt seen
during the actual robbery, but
is seen on the video wearing
dark clothes while setting up
the barrels and cones.
Anyone with information
about the robbery is asked to
call Trooper Houck at 459-

tropical storms Irene and Lee as
well as other upcoming projects.
DAMA serves Dallas Borough
and Dallas, Jackson, Kingston
and Lehman townships. The av-
erage household currently pays
$260 a year for solid waste col-
lection and $330 in sewer fees.
Spaciano said the authority
hadbeenmulling the idea of self-
collection about six months be-
fore making a final decision on
the matter in July.
Nine full-time employees have
already been hired for the new
program and the authority is
waiting on the delivery of four
30-yard garbage trucks and one
10-yard truck via the states pur-
chasing program.
Spaciano said the board also
plans to hire three or four more
part-time employees.
DAMA most recently con-
tracted J.P. Mascaro & Sons,
based in Audubon, for solid
waste collection. Spaciano said
in the past there have been ser-
vice issues with various con-
tracted collectors.
Our primary focus is provid-
ing the best possible service to
our customers, said Spaciano.
The programis set to begin on
Jan. 2. Spaciano said there are a
few changes for customers, in-
cluding a switch in the recycling
pickup schedule.
He said the program will in-
clude single stream recycling,
which means any sort of recycla-
ble material such as glass, paper,
aluminum and plastic, can be
mixed in bins. Recyclables will
be collected every other week.
Spaciano also said special ar-
rangements, such as privately
contracted collection services
for customers with long drive-
ways, will no longer be available
for insurance purposes.
Its going to be a little bumpy
in the beginning, but were going
to advertise these changes to en-
sure theres a minimal impact,
he said.
In other business, the board
changed its meeting schedule
for 2012 to 7 p.m. every second
Tuesday of the month.

DALLAS Albert Pujols
could have been a wealthy Cardi-
nal for life, planning for the day
his statue would be erected out-
side BuschStadiumnext to those
of Stan Musial, Bob Gibson and
the other St. Louis greats.
Instead, exactly six weeks after
leading the Cardinals to a second
title in one of the most thrilling
World Series ever, he decided to
accept the second-highest con-
tract in baseball
history for a
new future in
southern Cali-
fornia with the
Los Angeles
Angels.
The three-
time NL MVP
agreed Thursday to a $254 mil-
lion, 10-year contract with the
Angels, leaving behind a heart-
broken fan base by jilting one of
the sports traditional teams for
an expansion club with only one
championship in its half-century.
For baseball, it was a virtually
unprecedented move.

Wyoming Valley West Superin-
tendent Charles Suppon said
there was a simple reason for re-
jecting the PIAA transfer waiver
for EugeneLewis. Theschool dis-
trict didnt have enough informa-
tionabout the star athletes trans-
fer to Meyers to approve it.
Basically, at
this point the
school board
has decided not
to sign off on
him because
they dont want
to make a deci-
sion until the
athletic com-
mittee meets, Suppon said.
What they want to do is gather
all the facts because right now
were hearing a lot of stuff and we
want to decipher whats fact and
whats fiction.
Suppon also said he expected
to receive a PIAA transfer waiver
from Holy Redeemer regarding
the transfer of Lewis sister, Alex-
is, fromValley West and it will be
rejected as well for the same rea-
son.
Eugene Lewis has verbally
committed to Penn State to play
football, but is alsooneof thebest
basketball players in the Wyom-
ing Valley Conference. Alexis Le-
wis is a freshman and considered
one of the top newcomers to var-
sity basketball.
The PIAA requires both
schools to sign the waiver to al-
lowa transferring student to par-
ticipate in athletics. If it isnt
signed by both, a student can still
practice at the newschool but not
participate in games until the is-
sue is resolved.
Lewis enrolled at Meyers on
Tuesday and began classes on
Wednesday. He also practiced
with the Meyers basketball team
on Wednesday.
Suppon emphasized that the
refusal to sign the waiver wasnt
done as a vindictive act.
We have the utmost respect

PITTSBURGH Pittsburgh
quarterback Ben Roethlisberger
played through a painful left leg
injury to lead the Steelers to a
14-3 victory over the Cleveland
Browns on Thursday night.
Roethlisberger passed for 280
yards and two touchdowns, in-
cluding a 79-yard scoring strike
to Antonio Brown with 2:52 re-
maining to help the Steelers win
for the eighth time in their last
nine games.
Roethlisberger went to the
locker roomfor X-rays following
a gruesome second-quarter
sack but returned to start the
second half, passing for 178
yards after the break.
Pittsburgh (10-3) moved a
half-game ahead of Baltimore in
the race for the AFCNorth title.
Colt McCoy passed for 209
yards but also threw two inter-
ceptions for the Browns (4-9),
who lost for the 15th time in
their last 16 meetings with the
Steelers.
Hillis, who rushed for 1,177
yards last season, was playing in
his third straight game for the
first time this season. He was
listed as questionable heading
into the game after being limit-
ed in practice during the abbre-
viated week with a hip injury.

for the Wilkes-Barre Area School
District, Suppon said. This has
nothing to do with principal (An-
thony) Schwab, Meyers andespe-
cially coach Pat Toole. It has
nothing to do with any entities or
individuals mentioned. Its just
that we want to make sure the in-
tegrity of the Wyoming Valley
West School District as far as
PIAA rules and regulations is ad-
hering to everything.
There is a possibility, Suppon
added, that Valley West could
signthe waiver once it finishes its
inquiry into Lewis transfer.
Meyers verified that the Lewis
family has moved into a home a
short distance from the high
school. However, Lewis didnt
necessarily have to transfer to
Meyers. According to Suppon,
Lewis couldhave finishedout the
school year and graduated from
Valley West since he started the
school year there. He could have
also played on the Valley West
basketball team despite living in
another school districts bounda-
ries.
Alexis Lewis could have done
the same thing, but then would
have to transfer to Meyers or a
private school such as Redeemer
for the 2012-13 school year if the
family remained at its current
residence in Wilkes-Barre.
Meyers has requested a hear-
ing before the District 2 Athletic
Committee to resolve the issue.
The athletic committees regular
meeting is scheduled for Dec. 21,
but has a continuance of another
eligible hearing scheduled for
Dec. 14.
District 2 Athletic Committee
chairman Frank Majikes said no
date has been set for Lewis hear-
ing.
LEWIS
Continued fromPage 1B
Depth and seniority were
concerns for Holy Redeemer
coach Mara Pawlenok at the
beginning of last season.
But when it came to the Dis-
trict 2 championship meet, the
deepness of the Royals girls
swimming and diving team
paved the way for its second
concecutive district title.
Despite Scranton Prep captur-
ing seven individual or relay
championships, Holy Redeemer
managed a 285-262.5 decisive
win in the Class 2A meet over
the Cavaliers.
The Royals return the major-
ity of their instrumental pieces
from a year ago, including dis-
trict champions Julie Ann Mah-
le and Elizabeth Finnegan.
We only graduated three,
said Pawlenok, of her undefeat-
ed Wyoming Valley Conference
Division 1 championship-win-
ning team. We added a lot of
depth and also have some new
people coming in who make our
team a lot stronger.
Scranton Prep won the WVC
Division 2 title with a 7-0 record
and return two of its top swim-
mers from a year ago.
Pittston Area and Wyoming
Area battled it out for the WVC
Division 3 championship. The
Patriots defeated the Warriors
twice to post a 10-0 record.
Division 1
Holy Redeemer is poised for
another run at a division and
district title with a corps of
quick swimmers. The Royals
return all four parts of their
200-yard medley relay team,
which earned eighth place at
the PIAA Class 2A champion-
ships at Bucknell University.
Mahle, the opening leg of that
relay, won the 100 backstroke at
districts against a crowded field
that featured four swimmers
with seed times within three-
tenths of each other. Elizabeth
Finnegan is the reigning 100 free
champion. Rachel Finnegan and
Bethany Chmil also return from
the medal-winning relay.
Dallas Sarah Zerfoss won the
districts diving title and later
placed eighth in the state on a
broken toe. Zerfoss did not
return to the board until a week
before the championship meet
and posted a 373.5 score for her
second straight Class 2A diving
championship.
She has a strong work ethic,
said Dallas coach Romayne
Mosier. She knows what she
needs to do.
Shes recovered nicely from
her injury. Its not an issue.
Hazleton Area returns just
one swimmer from the last
years decisive Class 3A 400 free
relay race. With a district title
on the line, the Cougars squan-
dered a one-second lead in the
last leg and fell short by .54
seconds.
Class 3A 200 IM champion
Shaina Grego returns for a
young Hazleton Area squad that
will swim with a chip on its
shoulder this season.
That was tough, said Hazle-
ton Area coach Michele Yaku-
bowski. They remember that.
They bring it up at practice. Its
pushed them really hard to
motivate a young team for this
season.
Wyoming Valley West returns
three legs of the district-winning
400 free relay team but is with-
out Janelle McDaniels, who
swam the final leg of that race.
Kayleigh Fishe, Morgan Hana-
del and Desiree Holena return
for a Wyoming Valley West
squad that is one of the smallest
girls teams in Frank Tribendis
32-year coaching career. Triben-
dis said water polo conditioning
has moved its team into conten-
tion again.
They were training very
intensely playing water polo,
noted Tribendis. We were look-
ing so weak that it didnt seem
like wed be up to where we
normally are. Now they are
coming around.
Berwick, Hanover Area, Lake-
Lehman and Wyoming Semi-
nary will also contend in the
Division 1 ranks. The Bulldogs
and Black Knights must both
compete with low numbers. The
Blue Knights seek to capture
their first win since 2008 with a
talented group of freshmen that
includes Bailey Disler. Hanover
Area should gain points on the
diving boards with Ashlynn
Heller.
Crestwood suspended its
swimming and diving program
weeks before the start of the
season, according to Crestwood
athletic director Tony Moze-
leski.
Mozeleski cited facility con-
cerns as the reason for the sus-
pension. Crestwood used Nanti-
cokes pool as its home facility
last season.
Division 2
Scranton Prep looks to return
the conference championship
banner to the Byron Complex.
Both sophomore Mia Nonnen-
berg (500 free, 200 IM) and
senior Rebekah Campo (100 fly,
50 free) each claimed two dis-
trict championships at last
years race.
Its nice to have that top
talent, said Scranton Prep
coach Joe Their. It really makes
for strong relays and a good
overall team unity.
Abington Heights carries a
host of quick swimmers from
last year that makes it compet-
itive at the 3A level.
Much of Division 2 will be
marred by young squads and
low numbers. Tunkhannock lost
eight seniors to graduation, and
half of its team has never com-
peted at the high school level.
Vanessa LaTorre should lead a
deep Valley View team that will
be dependent on many fresh-
man and sophomore swimmers.
Holy Cross sophomore Megan
Carey secured the Class 2A 200
free title in her first district run
and aims to challenge Campo as
one of the quickest short-dis-
tance swimmers. The Crusad-
ers, along with Wallenpaupack,
are in their second year of a trial
membership for WVC swim-
ming.
Division 3
Division 3 typically has come
down to Wyoming Area and
Pittston Area.
The Warriors were hit hard by
graduation, losing three mem-
bers of their relay team. Wyom-
ing Area will depend on Tia
Brown and a young team.
Its pretty much a rebuilding
year, said Warriors coach Mau-
reen Pikas.
Pittston Area boasts 16 se-
niors on its roster this year and
returns strong talent from its
defending-championship team
in Michelle Fernando and Sa-
mantha Scialpi.
Meyers boasts a strong junior
class, heralded by Eilish Hoban
and Kylee McGrane, that is
primed to upset the balance of
power in the conference.
It always is competitive
between us, Coughlin, Wyoming
Area and Pittston Area, said
Meyers coach Jeff Ney. I dont
expect anything to change.
Coughlin expects to be the
dark horse in the division with a
crop of five seniors that includes
Cece Julius and Stephanie Mile-
wski.

The Huskies (8-1) appeared

they went up nine points and
again in the second when
they went up by 16 points.
But Harvard, the first team
from the Ivy League to be in
the Top 25 since Princeton in
1998, got back in the game by
using its crisp passing attack
and some solid work under-
neath.
Kyle Casey had 12 points to

Many top stars have changed
teams in their careers, fromBabe
Ruth to Willie Mays to Barry
Bonds. But this is perhaps the
best player in the game over the
past decade, exiting shortly after
one of the great postseason pow-
er shows.
A big and burly offensive force
witha shavedhead, the nine-time
All-Star has a roomfull of honors,
winning the 2001 NL Rookie of
the Year award, NL MVPs in
2005, 2008 and 2009, a batting ti-
tle in 2003 and a pair of Gold
Gloves at first base. Who would
have predicted that when the
Cardinals selected him in the
13th round of the 1999 amateur
draft with the 402nd overall se-
lection?
And now, hes going West.
As his deal fell intoplace onthe
final day of the winter meetings,
the Angels struck another big
agreement, a $77.5 million, five-
year contract with left-hander
C.J. Wilson, the ace whose Texas
Rangers lost to the Cardinals in
the seven-game World Series.
This is obviously the moment
where we have thrown our hat in
the ring, new Angels manager
Jerry Dipoto said.
Had he stayed in St. Louis be-
fore packed, adoring crowds, Pu-
jols wouldve established a Cal
Ripken-like legacy of loyalty, a
rare modern star who remained
with a franchise from first at-bat
to final swing.
Instead, some of his former
fans will see him as a sellout.
Pujols rejected a multiyear ex-
tension last offseason that was
said to include a small percent-
ageof thefranchiseandcut off ne-
gotiations a day before he arrived
at spring training. St. Louis also
offered the slugger a 10-year deal
that chairmanBill DeWitt Jr. said
was in excess of $200 million.
I would like our fans to know
that we tried our best to make Al-
bert a lifetime Cardinal, he said
in a statement, adding later in a
telephone interview: They were
substantially higher than our
bid.
In St. Louis, Pujols has accom-
plished so much that he would
have been beloved no matter his
future performance. But in Ana-
heim, he will have to prove him-
self anew.
I think his bodys going to
start breaking down and hes not
going to be good for 10 years,
said Katie Coyle, fitness coordi-
nator at the Webster-Kirkwood
YMCAinMissouri, a die-hardfan
who wore team colors to work
during the playoffs. I think hes
going to regret leaving here. If
hed have stayed here and signed
a long-term deal with the Cardi-
nals, theyd have had compassion
for himbecause theyve seen him
at his best.
Pujols contract, which like
Wilsons is subject toaphysical, is
only the third to break the $200
million barrier, following Alex
Rodriguezs $252 million, 10-year
deal with Texas before the 2001
season and A-Rods $275 million,
10-year agreement with the Yan-
kees before the 2008 season.
This is a monumental day for
Angel fans and I could not be
more excited, said owner Arte
Moreno, who bought the team
for $184 million from The Walt
Disney Co. in 2003, a year after
its only title.
Despite a top-four payroll this
year, the Angels languished to a
second-place finish behind Texas
in the AL West. They spent
$331.5 million on just two play-
ers, capping an unusual winter
meetings in which the New York
Yankees and Boston Red Sox
watched while the Angels and
Miami Marlins spent as if they
were the sports financial elite.
Moving into a new ballpark
next season, the Marlins failed to
reel in Pujols but acquired All-
Star closer Heath Bell, All-Star
shortstop Jose Reyes and left-
hander Mark Buehrle for $191
million, meaning the two clubs
committed $522.5 million to just
five free agents.
I think baseball needs to have
a steroid-testing policy for own-
ers, said Andrew Zimbalist, a
sports economics professor at
Smith College.
Pujols became the first player
to hit 30 home runs in his first 11
seasons and the second after Al
Simmons (1924-34) to reach 100
RBIs in his first 10. He has a .338
average, 445homeruns and1,329
RBIs to become a franchise icon
second only to Musial.
PUJOLS

still be anchored there, too.
Instead, the moment Pujols
took flight for Anaheim, the
landscape of baseball was dras-
tically altered.
St. Louis, still catching its
breath after manager Tony
LaRussas retirement, has al-
most no chance of defending
the World Series title it just
won. Miami came up just short
on its biggest gambit and be-
came just another multimil-
lion-dollar also-ran. The Amer-
ican League West is the new
center of power. The Los An-
geles market became big
enough to support two teams.
And the smartest guy in the
game at the moment, any-
way is Angels owner Arte
Moreno.
The comparisons between
Moreno signing Pujols to a
$254-million, 10-year contract
and former Ranger owner Tom
Hicks signing Alex Rodriguez
to a similarly stratospheric
but ultimately disastrous
deal are already beginning.
Pujols will be 41 and hardly
the most fearsome slugger in
in baseball by the end of it.
The big difference is that Mo-
reno will get his value back
long before 2018.
Unlike A-Rod, Pujols joins a
team with what was arguably
the best pitching staff in the
AL, and it got considerably
better when Moreno slapped
down another $77.5 million
over five years to steal free-
agent pitcher C.J. Wilson from
the rival Texas Rangers. Pujols
likely will have Torii Hunter
and Vernon Wells batting on
either side of him in the order
for protection, meaning a li-
neup that ranked 10th in pro-
ducing runs a season ago is
headed nowhere but up. Just
as important as the on-field
upgrade is how competitive
this makes the Angels in their
battle against the Dodgers for
headlines.
Signing Pujols would have
been a boon for the Marlins,
too. Unveiling Pujols along
with a new ballpark, a new
manager (Ozzie Guillen) and
new superstar sidekicks (for-
mer Mets shortstop Jose Reyes
and Mariners closer Heath
Bell) might have enabled the
Marlins to give the Miami
Heat a run for the headlines. It
also would have gone a long
way toward the ballclubs tar-
get of doubling attendance,
which is what ownerships
counting on to recoup most of
the money laid out during an
uncharacteristic spending
spree.
Although the economics of
the deal wont be settled for
years, it seems clear the Cardi-
nals had the most to lose.
We are disappointed that
we were unable to reach an
agreement to keep Albert Pu-
jols in St. Louis, team owner
Bill DeWitt said in a state-
ment. Albert is a great cham-
pion, and we will always be
thankful for his many achieve-
ments in a Cardinals uniform,
as well as his contributions to
the St. Louis community. I
have the highest regard for
Albert both personally and
professionally, and appreciate
his direct involvement in this
process. I would like our fans
to know that we tried our best
to make Albert a lifetime Car-
dinal, but unfortunately we
were unable to make it hap-
pen.
Last January, the Cardinals
offered Pujols nine years and
$198 million. That wouldnt
even have made him the high-
est-paid first baseman. Their
last offer reportedly was for 10
years and pushed the guaran-
teed dollars somewhere past
$200 million. So while De-
Witts statement thanking
Pujols for all his contributions
big roles in both of St.
Louis last two World Series
championships sounds
right, the part about manage-
ment trying our best to make
Albert a lifetime Cardinal
doesnt go far enough.
They had the guy in town
his whole career and the
chance to lock him up long
before it came to this. Pujols
knows the town, especially the
ballpark, and would have kept
the Cardinals competitive for
another handful of seasons or
so. Instead, another team will
reap the benefits of a few extra
dollars from his pursuit of the
home-run mark somewhere
down the road. And nowhere
would that feat be as wel-
comed as it would have been
in St. Louis.
He left a pretty good im-
pact over there. I dont think
fans will soon forget what his
contributions were, said for-
mer Cardinals manager and
star Joe Torre, now an exec-
utive with Major League Base-
ball. I still think the St. Louis
fans are going to be more
appreciative than angry.
And even the angry ones
know where to find Pujols.
Just dont try touching the
statue.

MIAMI A new playground for multi-
millionaires shimmers in the South Florida
sun, all steel and glass and girders, looking
like something beamed down from the fu-
ture into the modest surrounding Little Ha-
vana neighborhood.
Such an eye-catching edifice will always
draw attention, and while the first game re-
mains four months away, the Miami Mar-
lins new ballpark already is attracting brisk
business, All-Star players and the scrutiny
of federal investigators. The ballpark made
possible a spending spree unprecedented in
the Marlins strange history.
We have a glorious new ballpark, and we
want to be good, owner Jeffrey Loria said.
We want to win.
After years of poor attendance and mea-
ger payrolls, the Marlins anticipate capacity
crowds next season, and with revenue on
the rise, Loria went shopping to upgrade
the team.
A decade after buying the Marlins, art
dealer Loria has mastered the art of the
multiyear deal. The New York native sud-
denly became George Steinbrenner.
First he hired Ozzie Guillen, a veteran
manager as colorful as the Marlins newuni-
forms. Then Loria turned his attention to
free agents.
The Marlins were the talk of baseballs
winter meetings in Dallas this week, mak-
ing deals for NL batting champion Jose
Reyes, All-Star left-hander Mark Buehrle
and All-Star closer Heath Bell that totaled
$191 million.
I was a little surprised they had that
much money to burn, said Terry Collins,
manager of Reyes former team, the NL
East rival New York Mets.
The Marlins struck out in their bid for
slugger Albert Pujols, the biggest prize in
free agency, who eventually chose the Los
Angeles Angels. Even so, Miamis makeover
is extreme. The Marlins offer to Pujols was
for more than $200 million over 10 years,
roughly equal to what they paid every play-
er combined over the past five years.
The courtships came as the Securities
and Exchange Commission began to inves-
tigate whether the Marlins ballpark agree-
ment with the city and county violated fed-
eral securities laws. Despite the investiga-
tion, team officials went to Dallas in a
spending mood.
In the past, they spent the winter meet-
ings as spectators or worse, as sellers
unloading talent when it became too expen-
sive. All-Stars Miguel Cabrera, Josh Beckett
and Dan Uggla were among those traded.
But this year, Marlins executives proudly
moved about the hotel in Dallas with their
chests out, a big-budget posture so familiar
to agents they have a name for it: puffing.
Twitter was abuzz with quips about the
Marlins buying the Yankees and signing
Brett Favre. Its a big change for a franchise
long regarded as thrifty or just plain
cheap.
Wow!! The Marlins are putting it out
there, tweeted outfielder Torii Hunter of
the big-budget Angels. Baseball party in
Miami.
Its good for baseball, San Diego Padres
general manager Josh Byrnes said. Theres
a lot of excitement there. Its amazing how
the game runs in cycles.
Andrew Zimbalist, a sports economics
professor at Smith College, said Loria
wants to give next years big crowds a com-
petitive team so fans keep coming back. For
that reason, spending big now makes sense,
he said.
Not everyone in Miami has been toasting
the new Marlins. Some civic leaders contin-
ue to fume about the $515 million deal for
the ballpark, which was built mostly with
public money. Financial details remain mur-
ky, and recent SEC subpoenas to the city
and Miami-Dade County seek a long list of
documents and records, including those in-
volving communications between govern-
ment officials and executives with the Mar-
lins and Major League Baseball.

C O L L E G E F O O T A L L
LAWRENCE, Kan. Former
Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis
has been hired at Kansas, where
hell try to rebuild a program
that won the Orange Bowl just a
few years ago but floundered un-
der Turner Gill.
Weis will be introduced during
a news conference Friday
Weis is wrapping up his first
season as offensive coordinator
at Florida after
spending one
season direct-
ing the Kansas
City Chiefs of-
fense. But his
most extensive
college experi-
ence came with
the Fighting Irish, where he
went 35-27 in five seasons before
he was let go.
The 55-year-old Weis helped
the New England Patriots win
three Super Bowls on the staff of
Bill Belichick, and has also spent
time with the New York Jets and
New York Giants.
Kansas athletic director Shea-
hon Zenger is hopeful that Weis
high profile will energize a fan
base that had grown apathetic
under Gill, who was fired after
going 5-19 in just two seasons.
School officials would not dis-
close the terms of Weis contract.
Gill signed a five-year deal
that guaranteed him $10 million,
which means the school is on the
hook for roughly $6 million after
firing him. Weis was making
about $800,000 per year with the
Gators.
It was little secret that Weis
wasnt fond of Kansas City dur-
ing his time with the Chiefs, and
he moved on to the Gators in
part so that he could be near his
son, who is also on the football
staff. He bought a horse farm in
nearby Ocala, and has several
health issues that include possi-
bly needing hip surgery after the
season that could make it diffi-
cult to jump right into recruit-
ing.
Still, the opportunity to re-
build the Jayhawks appears to be
enough of a challenge.
Weis was considered one of
the bright stars of coaching
when he took over at Notre
Dame, his alma mater. The Bill
Parcells disciple had a successful
debut and was rewarded with a
10-year extension, but when the
program didnt progress, he was
fired with six years remaining.
He initially received a termina-
tion payment of about $6.6 mil-
lion, but was to receive smaller
annual payments through 2015.
Zenger rarely spoke publicly
about the job search, preferring
to keep his cards close to the
vest. It was rumored that he was
interested in longtime friend
Mike Leach, who decided to re-
turn to coaching at Washington
State, along with coaches like
Kevin Sumlin at Houston and
Larry Fedora at Southern Miss.
Established assistants like Gus
Malzahn also were rumored to
be in the running.
In the end, Zengers first major
hire since arriving at Kansas
turns out to be someone whose
stock has suffered since his diffi-
cult tenure in South Bend, where
he put together some of the na-
tions top recruiting classes but
failed to turn them into national
championship contenders.
Of course, expectations will be
much lower at Kansas.
The Jayhawks beat Virginia
Tech in the Orange Bowl in
2007, but for the most part the
program has had a bleak history.
Mark Mangino was considered
extremely successful despite go-
ing just 49-48 during seven sea-
sons in charge, and he left Kan-
sas in shambles.

pen.
The next good thing could be
the dual-threat playmaking
quarterbackandaspiringlawyer
known as RG3 becoming Bay-
lors first Heisman Trophy win-
ner.
That is quite a thought con-
sidering that the Bears used to
be a constant fixture at or near
the bottom of the Big 12 stand-
ings and never had a winning re-
cord in the league before Griffin
arrived.
There also were concerns
each of the last two summers
during realignment talks that
Baylor could be left out of a ma-
jor conference before the Big 12
twice revived itself.
Now the 15th-ranked Bears
(9-3) have their most wins in 25
years and are going to their sec-
ond consecutive bowl game af-
ter a 16-year postseason
drought. With a win over Wash-
ington in the Alamo Bowl, they
would match the school record
of 10 wins set in 1980 during
Mike Singletarys senior season.
Its great whenever you can
build something up from the
ground up, because here at Bay-
lor, things hadnt beengoodfor a
while, Griffin said. The foun-
dation had eroded away and we
were able to get the grass back
green.
Griffin, the nations most effi-
cient passer and one of the most
exciting players, is one of five
Heisman Trophy finalists who
will be in NewYork for Saturday
nights ceremony. He is the only
one from the Big 12, whose last
two winners have been Oklaho-
ma quarterbacks, Sam Bradford
in2008andJasonWhitein2003.
The Heisman to me has al-
ways been about excitement,
Griffinsaid. Anybodywhowins
it is deserving. But if youwant to
talk about excitement and what
college football is really about, I
think were doing it here at Bay-
lor.
All with the 6-foot-2, 220-
pound Griffin at the helm.
Griffin has completed 267 of
369 passes (72 percent) for
3,998 yards with a Big 12-lead-
ing 36 touchdowns and only six
interceptions, and run for 644
yards with nine more scores. He
has averaged 387 total yards a
game and his touchdown passes
have averaged more than 36
yards each.
This season began with Grif-
fin throwing for 359 yards and
fiveTDs inanationallytelevised
Friday night game, when he
even had a 15-yard catch on a
third-and-10 drive that led to the
game-winning field goal in a
wild 50-48 victory over No. 16
TCU, the nations best defense
the previous three seasons.
There was the Saturday night
special three weeks ago against
then-No. 5 Oklahoma, a team
the Bears had never beaten.
Griffin set school records with
479 yards passing and 551 total
yards in a 45-38 victory. On the
final drive, Griffinhadruns of 22
and 8 yards before his scram-
bling 34-yard TD throw across
the field with 8 seconds left.
The last play of the game,
threw back of the end zone,
whichkindof defines tomehim,
and how hes matured into a
great player, Missouri coach
Gary Pinkel said. He not only
has great athleticism, his accu-
racy at throwing, his arm
strength, also his playmaking
ability. ... Hes a special one.
After a 4-0 November sweep
by the Bears who had won a
combined four Big 12 games in
November the previous 15 sea-
sons Griffin made his final
statement for Heisman voters
by throwing for 320 yards with
two long touchdowns and ran
for two more scores in a 48-24
victory over Texas.
He epitomizes everything
you have to be to become a com-
plete player on and off the field
and thats why hes a finalist,
Baylor coach Art Briles said.
Griffin, a fourth-year junior,
holds or shares 46 school re-
cords.
By the time Griffin played his
first game for the Bears in 2008,
when at 18 he was the nations
youngest FBS starting quarter-
back and weighed only about
190pounds, hewas alreadyaBig
12 champion and NCAA All-
American in the 400-meter hur-
dles. He graduated from high
school near the top of his class
beforeenrollingat Baylor for the
spring semester.
CoachBriles toldme hes not
a prophet, but he did say that in
two or three years, Id be a Heis-
man Trophy finalist, Griffin
said. And its coming true.

PITTSBURGH NFL Hall of

co Harris has been reinstated as
the chairman of a Pittsburgh
scholarship foundation, less than
a month after he stepped down
from the job after drawing criti-
cism for his support of former
Penn State football coach Joe Pa-
terno amid a child sex abuse
scandal.
The Pittsburgh Promise board
voted Wednesday to reinstate
Harris as chairman. Hed stepped
down as board chairman on Nov.
17 after Pittsburgh Mayor Luke
Ravenstahl complained about
Harris statements backing Pa-
terno.
Harris said previously his sup-
port for Paterno should not be
considered an endorsement of
former coach Jerry Sandusky.
Sandusky is facing 50 counts of
child sex abuse involving 10
young boys.
Ravenstahl says Harris showed
he understands the importance

MEMPHIS, Tenn. Justin
Fuente filed away his notes from
his interview for the Memphis
coaching position and, thinking
he probably didnt get the job,
wrote thank you notes to the uni-
versitys search committee. Then
the phone started ringing off the
hook.
That was Wednesday morning.
By the end of the day, TCUs co-
offensive coordinator had accept-
ed an offer to take over the Ti-
gers struggling football pro-
gram.
Had a good practice, and then
got home and sprinted to the car,
then jumped on the plane and
came here, Fuente told fans and
university officials who attended
a Thursday news conference an-
nouncing him as the next Mem-
phis coach. I didnt sleep but
about 10 or 15 minutes, woke up,
started the day. A lot of fun.
That was Fuentes last TCU
practice. He will not be on the
sidelines when TCU meets Loui-
siana Tech in the Dec. 21Poinset-
tia Bowl in San Diego.
Fuente is replacing Larry Por-
ter, who was fired after the Ti-
gers season-ending 44-7 loss to
eventual Conference USA cham-
pion Southern Mississippi on
Nov. 26. Porter was 3-21 in two
seasons as headcoachof his alma

person search committee to re-
place deposed coach Joe Pater-
no, has said only that the new
coach must be highly ethical,
understand the importance of
academics, and of course, one
thats able to win.
Few connected to the coach-
ing hunt are talking two weeks
since the committee was
formed. With prospective candi-
dates still employed elsewhere,
people are understandably re-
luctant to give out any details.
One person who doesnt have
that problem is interim coach
Tom Bradley.
Bradley, who accompanied
Joyner down to Dallas, is one of
the few people in a position to
publicly express interest in the
job. The long-time assistant
took over for Paterno after he
was fired on Nov. 9.
Though he has not inter-
viewed for the job yet, Bradley
told The Associated Press he ex-
pects to sit down with Joyner
some time next week.
Tom and I are talking about
that now. Were going to work it
out on his schedule, Joyner
said. Hes got a lot of things hes
got to pay attention to right
now.
Joyner said head coaching ex-
perience is a strong thing to
consider but was not a require-
ment for the job.
Regardless of what happens
with the coaching search, Bra-
dley and the current staff are ex-
pected to coach in the bowl
game against Houston on Jan. 2.
Bradley is the lone person
Penn State has acknowledged is
a candidate for the job. How se-
rious of a candidate is up for de-
bate, given that the school may
decide to distance itself fromthe
old regime in light of the Jerry
Sandusky scandal.
New charges were brought
against the former defensive co-
ordinator on Wednesday, bring-
ing the total to 52 counts of sex-
ual abuse against 10 children.
On top of that, the Big Ten re-
quested Thursday that the con-
ference be allowed to participa-
te in the investigations or re-
views by Penn State and the
NCAA regarding the Sandusky
case.
A statement from the Big Ten
Council of Presidents/Chancel-
lors said it will reserve the right
to impose sanctions, corrective
or other disciplinary measures
on Penn State if the school is
found to have committed viola-
tions of institutional control or
ethical conduct.
The statement contains much
of the same language as a notice
written three weeks ago by
NCAA president Mark Emmert
announcing a probe into the uni-
versity and its athletic depart-
ment.
Penn State has already begun
an internal investigation into
the allegations against Sandus-
ky and into an alleged cover-up
by top university officials.
Though not facing any crimi-
nal charges, Paterno and presi-
dent Graham Spanier were oust-
ed by Penn States board of
trustees in the wake of the scan-
dal.
Addressing the situation, the
Big Ten said that while it is pre-
mature to reach any conclusions
regarding civil or criminal liabil-
ity arising out of these events,
there does appear to be suffi-
cient information to raise signif-
icant concerns as to whether a
concentration of power in a sin-
gle individual or program may
have threatened or eroded insti-
tutional control of intercolle-
giate athletics at Penn State.
More honors for Still
Defensive tackle Devon Still
earned another first-team All-
America designation on Thurs-
day, as he was named to the Wal-
ter Camp team. Earlier this
week, the Delaware native was
named a first-teamAll-American
by CBSsports.com.
Still was a finalist for the Bed-
narik Award (top defensive play-
er) and the Outland Trophy (top
interior lineman) during Thurs-
days college football awards cer-
emony in Orlando, Fla. The Bed-
narik went to LSUs Tyrann
Mathieu while the Outland went
to Alabamas Barrett Jones.
The senior had already swept
the Big Ten honors he was eligi-
ble for, being named the confer-
ences defensive player of the
year, the defensive lineman of
the year and a first-team all-con-
ference selection.
Still remains a finalist for an-
other national defensive player
of the year award the Nagur-
ski, which will be presented
Monday.

missioner Jim Delany says he
would support the elimination
of automatic bids to the Bowl
Championship Series as long as
the teams from his league get to
play in the Rose Bowl.
But if college footballs leaders
want to turn the BCS into a
four-team playoff, Delany plans
to push back. And Notre Dame
athletic director Jack Swarbrick
would be on Delanys side of the
debate.
Delany was at the Intercolle-
giate Athletics Forum on Thurs-
day, part of a panel discussion
with Atlantic Coast Conference
Commissioner John Swofford,
Conference USA Commissioner
Britton Banowsky and Moun-
tain West Conference Commis-
sioner Craig Thompson.
The commissioners, universi-
ty presidents and athletic direc-
tors who control the BCS are in
the early stages of determining
the future of major college foot-
balls controversial postseason
system.
Among the many possible
changes is eliminating automat-
ic bids to the highest-paying
bowl games and having the BCS
set only the matchup for the No.
1 vs. No. 2 national champion-
ship game. The other bowl
games would be free to make
deals with whatever schools and
leagues they would like, much
the way it was before the BCS.
Banowsky said automatic-bid
status had become divisive. C-
USA, which does not have an
automatic bid, just lost three
members SMU, Houston and
UCF to the Big East, one of
six conferences that has an auto-
matic bid through the 2013 sea-
son. Thompsons league, which
also is a non-AQ conference, is
losing Boise State and San Die-
go State to the Big East.
I feel strongly that it has
been a negative driver from our
perspective, Banowsky said. I
hope that as we evolve the BCS
we do it in a way that can create
a more happy BCS without cre-
ating these class systems. I
think its possible to do it, create
a competitive format that re-
quires teams to be competitive
teams in order to participate
and rewards the teams that are
competitive.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.
Minnesota running back Adrian
Peterson returned to practice
Thursday on a limited basis, a
big step toward healing from a
sprained left ankle.
Quarterback Christian Pon-
der, however, didnt practice as
he nurses a right hip pointer
that is jeopardizing his chance
to play Sunday at Detroit.
Peterson has missed the last
two games with his injury, but
he made significant strides in
cutting and planting on his foot
without pain.
It was really encouraging to
see some of the things he was
able to do, Vikings coach Leslie
Frazier said. Hes headed in the
right direction, far more im-
proved than he was a week ago.
Peterson was unavailable for
comment Thursday, preferring
to push his weekly media ad-
dress to Friday. But the team
has sensed his eagerness to be
back on the field, despite the
2-10 record.
Hes the ultimate competitor.
He definitely wants to be in
there. But when the times right
hell be back, right tackle Phil
Loadholt said.
The Vikings gained a season-
high 489 yards in last weeks
loss to Denver without their
best player, giving them some
confidence that the offense can
finish the season strong. Wide
receiver Percy Harvin, however,
downplayed the Peterson effect
and put the onus on the entire
team for these final four games.
I dont think having him or
not having him has anything to
do with what weve got going on
right now, Harvin said. Weve
just got to execute better, be
able to finish games, play all
four quarters. We cant have one
game when we play good on of-
fense and not so good on de-
fense or play good on defense
and not so good on offense.
Weve just got to find a balance
so we can do both.
Tight end Kyle Rudolph
played sparingly against Denver,
but he caught a touchdown
pass, making another highlight-
reel reception by plucking the
ball out of the air over a defend-
ers helmet and hanging on long
enough to establish possession
before another opponent swat-
ted it out. Harvin beamed when
asked about another young skill-
position player the offense
ought to be able to rely on as a
foundation, even if there are up-
grades that must be made on
the line and the other wide re-
ceiver spots for the Vikings to
improve.

Oops.
There are plenty of tasks in
the job description for NFL
receivers: running proper
routes, blocking, developing
chemistry with the quarter-
back. And there is one very
basic requirement catching
the ball.
Not so easy, it seems, even
for the likes of Super Bowl
winners.
Drops are not an official NFL
statistic, yet every team has a
system for counting them. And
every team has its share of
players who make that statistic
necessary, including the unde-
feated Packers. They gave star
quarterback Aaron Rodgers
nightmares with all the throws
his targets flubbed in last Sun-
days victory at the Giants.
Drops are part of the game,
Rodgers said after the half-
dozen blatant ones by his re-
ceivers. They are going to
happen. Its just frustrating
when they are having a direct
impact on a drive, they may
stall. I dont know how many
we officially had tonight, but
more than is acceptable in an
offensive run.
Some players make spectac-
ular catches Santonio
Holmes won a Super Bowl for
Pittsburgh with one and
then cant hang on to an easy
pass. Others cant hang on to
any passes, as Jaguars tight
end Marcedes Lewis showed a
few weeks ago, with a drop in
the end zone with nobody
around him the most costly.
It seems to have reached
epidemic proportions through-
out the league, even though
the weather hasnt turned bad
yet.
Miami wide receivers coach-
es Steve Bush and Ike Hilliard
track drops when they watch
film, and theyve seen far too
many from Brandon Marshall,
for instance. Dolphins running
back Reggie Bush, who has
good hands, has seen Marshall
mess up a bunch of throws,
including four potential touch-
downs, and has a theory why
so many players have the drop-
sies.
A lot of it probably has to
do with the lockout and guys
not being able to be around as
much during the offseason,
Bush said. When we have that
much time off, youre going to
be playing some type of catch
up, and I dont think the NFL is
going to be completely back
until another season.
Cris Carter, a semifinalist for
the Hall of Fame this year, was
known for having one of the
best sets of hands in the game.
He doesnt see the lockout as a
factor, and he doesnt see any-
thing changing anytime soon.
For one, the NFL has be-
come a passing league, so more
balls are in the air. Thus, more
of them are landing on the
ground. But Carter, who made
1,101 catches for 13,899 yards
and 130 touchdowns, sees
another reason for the bobbles.
A lot of receivers are not
working on catching the foot-
ball, as far as training, and not
concentrating on catching it,
he said. Their ability to catch
the football is not better. Look
at the advances of athletes and
equipment, and yet what re-
ceivers were able to do 30
years ago compared to today,
they dont run better routes or
catch the football better. The
fundamentals, they dont work
on ... and they are really hard
to get and the last things that
really come together.
Larry Fitzgerald, Wes Welker,
Jason Avant and Reggie Wayne
are among those who have
mastered all aspects of receiv-
ing. Throw them the ball and
they nearly always catch it.
They also dont call special
attention to themselves. Some
would argue that too many
wideouts are divas, as con-
cerned with their post-TD
celebrations and calling atten-
tion to themselves as with
catching the darn ball.
There also are too many
wideouts who want to run with
the ball before they get it. Ted
Ginn Jr. with San Francisco
and Roy Williams with Chicago
helped cost their teams games
by deflecting perfect passes to
the opposition. DeSean Jackson
dropped three passes against
New England, two that could
have gone for scores, turning a
close game into a lopsided loss
for Philadelphia.
It drives coaches and offen-
sive coordinators mad.
Cant drop balls, especially
when theyre catchable, said
Browns coach Pat Shurmur,
whose team unofficially leads
the league in that ignominious
category. We talk about it all
the time and the players would
tell you, Any ball in the air is
ours. That needs to be the
mentality and weve got to get
that done.
Another problem is that the
drops remain on players
minds.
Theres no question it gets
in their head and that is the
biggest challenge. If they start
thinking about it, that makes it
harder to stop. You have to
massage their psyche, said
Giants offensive coordinator
Kevin Gilbride. You see it
when they start thinking about
running with the ball before
they have it.
Our guy Victor Cruz, when
its a tough catch, hes all in
there all the way, making those
catches. When he has some
room or its a so-called easier
catch, he sometimes is looking
to run before he has the ball.
You talk to them about it
and you try to find out, is it
lack of concentration? Poor
fundamentals? Hits by the
defense? Trying to do too
much? You dont want them
thinking about the next stage
of the play before they make
the catch.
There are some players who
cant get enough of the drops:
defensive backs.
You have to look at the guy
and the game, because theres
so many things that can make
it happen, Giants safety Kenny
Phillips said. Take a guy like
Brandon Marshall. Hes a great
receiver, and he might drop
some, but hes also going to
burn you any time you take it
easy on him. Hell catch it and
be gone. So you cant ever
expect them to (drop it). But
you can hit them and make
them drop it.
I sure hope its a trend. I
play defense and I want to see
them dropping the ball.

GREEN BAY, Wis. The
cheese is going fast.
The NFLs only publicly
owned team said Thursday
that it sold 185,000 shares in
the first 48 hours of a stock
sale that began Tuesday
morning. Thats almost
three-fourths of the 250,000
shares made available in the
fifth stock offering in team
history.
The team set a Feb. 29
deadline for the sale, but at
the current rate all available
stockwill begonelongbefore
that as fans the famous
cheeseheads snap up
shares.
The Packers are tremen-
dously appreciative of the
support weve received from
our fans, saidMarkMurphy,
Packers president andCEO.
The team is selling shares
for $250 each, plus a $25
handlingfee. As of Thursday,
thePackershaveraisedabout
$43 million, which will go to-
ward a $143 million expan-
sion of Lambeau Field. Plans
call for adding 6,700 addi-
tional seats, newhigh-defini-
tion video screens and a new
entrance by 2013.
The expansion will en-
hance the stadium experi-
ence for fans, increase our
teams home-field advantage
and ensures that Lambeau
Fieldcontinues beasourceof
pride for fans everywhere,
Murphy said. Were hum-
bledbytheresponsefromour
fans and their desire to help
the Packers achieve long-
termsuccess.
The shares went on sale at
packers.com. Stock can only
be purchased by individuals,
not businesses, and theres a
200-sharecap, afigurethatin-
cludes any stock purchased
during the last sale in1997.
The stock isnt an invest-
ment inthetraditional sense:
Its value doesnt increase,
there are no dividends, it has
virtually no re-sale value and
it wont give buyers a leg up
on the 93,000 people on the
waitinglistforseasontickets.
What buyers get is a piece
of paper declaring them a
team owner, voting rights
andtheright toattendthean-
nual stockholder meeting at
Lambeau each summer be-

get access to a special line of
shareholder apparel.

Unemployment claims fall
A steady decline in the number of
people applying for weekly unemploy-
ment benefits is the latest signal that
the economy has strengthened.
Applications fell last week to a sea-
sonally adjusted 381,000, the Labor
Department said Thursday. Thats the
lowest level since late February.
A four-week average for applications,
which smooths week-to-week fluctu-
ations, fell for the ninth time in 11
weeks to an eight-month low.
GOP blocks consumer chief
Senate Republicans on Thursday
blocked President Barack Obamas
choice to head the new consumer pro-
tection agency that was designed to
help curtail the excesses and abuses
that led to the financial meltdown.
Republicans presented a near-solid
front in filibustering the nomination of
former Ohio Attorney General Richard
Cordray to be director of the Consumer
Financial Protection Bureau. The agen-
cy was an essential element of legisla-
tion enacted last year to overhaul the
financial system.
Only one Republican voted to ad-
vance the nomination.
Net worth fell in summer
Americans household net worth fell
4 percent to $57.4 trillion in the July-
September quarter, as stocks, pension
funds and home values lost value, ac-
cording to a Federal Reserve report
released Thursday. It was the sharpest
drop since the tumultuous period after
the September 2008 bankruptcy of
investment bank Lehman Brothers.
And it was the second straight quarter-
ly fall.
Stock market declines, in particular,
have held back Americans quest to
recover losses from the 2008 financial
meltdown.
Stocks have rebounded about 9 per-
cent since last quarter ended.
McDonalds sales soar
McDonalds Corp. said Thursday a
key revenue figure rose 7.4 percent in
November on strong demand from
markets around the world.
In the U.S., sales were boosted by
sales of breakfast items and the season-
al addition of the peppermint mocha to
the companys coffee menu.
The worlds largest fast-food chain
says revenue at stores open at least 13
months rose 6.5 percent in both the
U.S. and Europe and 8.1 percent in the
region covering Asia Pacific, the Mid-
dle East and Africa.

WASHINGTON Jon Cor-
zine told a congressional panel
Thursdaythat heneverintended
tobreakrules requiringfailedse-
curities firm MF Global to safe-
guard client
funds. He also
said he
doesnt know
what hap-
pened to an
estimated
$1.2 billion
that went mis-
sing.
Corzine is testifying before
the House Agriculture Commit-
tee about the firms bankruptcy,
which followed disastrous bets
on European debt that were
made while Corzine was CEO.
Corzine deflected blame for
the companys collapse. He ar-
gued that he inherited a firm al-
ready doomed by his predeces-
sors bad financial decisions.
He appeared strained and at
times grasped for words. But
Corzine responded to every
question posed, choosing not to
exercise his Fifth Amendment
right.
His answers were cautiously
worded. He often said he
couldnt recall or lacked access
to materials needed for him to
answer.
Im not in a position, given
the number of transactions, to
know anything specific about
the movement of any specific
funds, he said.
Still, Corzine said he accepts
responsibility for the firms risky
bets andsaidits customers loss-
es weigh on his mind every day
every hour.
The former U.S. senator was
subpoenaed to explain how MF
Global, whichheledforabout 20
months, collapsed into the
eighth-largest bankruptcy in
U.S. history and why an estimat-
ed $1.2 billion in client funds re-
mains unaccounted for.
He said he cant say whether
there were operational errors
at MF Global or whether other
companies have held onto mon-
eythat shouldbereturnedtoMF
Global.
Corzine faults predecessors for firms fall
Ex-senator testifies in D.C.
that he doesnt know what
happened to missing $1.2B.

WILKES-BARRE Tom McDonald
lives in Nanticoke, but when he wants au-
thentic Italianfood, he goes toFranks Piz-
za.
The best way I can put it is like this
real people, real food, McDonald, 45, said
Thursday at the grand opening of the res-
taurant at 198 S. Main St.
McDonald and his wife, Lisa, were
among a large crowd that showed up to
wish owners Philip and Rosa Bellia well in
their relocated business. Franks Pizza
moved its operations fromPenn Plaza as a
part of major development project at the
plaza.
The restaurant is nowlocated in a build-
ing owned by the Bellia family. It formerly
was occupied by First General Lamp and
had been vacant for five years.
Wethinkthisisabetter location,Philip
Bellia, 45, said.
The business was opened in December
1975 by Rosas parents, the late Frank and
Concetta Genova.
This is very emotional for us, Rosa, 41,
said. Were very proud to be a part of the
resurgence of downtown Wilkes-Barre. We
want to contribute to the vibrant move-
ment that has been going on the past few
years.
Franksfeaturespizza, strombolis, Italian
pasta dishes, wings and soups. The restau-
rant isopenMonday, TuesdayandWednes-
day from10 a.m. to11p.m.; Friday, 10 a.m.
until midnight; Saturday, 11 a.m. to mid-
night; and Sunday, noon to 10 p.m. Take-
outs are available by calling 822-2168.
Imglad to see Franks Pizza stay in the
downtown, said Mayor Tom Leighton.
They could have relocated anywhere, but
they chose our downtown.
State Sen. John Yudichak said he has pa-
tronized Franks since he was a young boy
taking guitar lessons at Krygers in Penn
Plaza.
I never accomplished the guitar, but I
certainly acquired a taste for Franks Piz-
za, Yudichak said. By staying in down-
townWilkes-Barre, the Bellia familyshows
a strong commitment to the city.
Whenplans torenovatePennPlazawere
announced, they included construction of
a new 6,000-square-foot building near the
corner of SouthMainStreet andHazleAve-
nue. The buildingwas tohouse the relocat-
ed Franks Pizza and one or two additional
new tenants, but the Bellia family decided
to move closer to the center of downtown.

DETROIT Ford Motor Co.
said Thursday it will resume pay-
ing a dividend in March, more
than five years after it halted pay-
ments because of financial prob-
lems.
The companys board ap-
proved a quarterly dividend of 5
cents per share. It will be paid on
March1to shareholders of record
as of Jan. 31.
We have made tremendous
progress in reducing debt and
generating consistent positive
earnings and cash flow, Execu-
tive Chairman Bill Ford said in a
statement.
Ford stopped paying a divi-
dend in September 2006, when it
was deeply indebt. Fordreported
its tenth straight profitable quar-
ter in the third quarter of this
year, and it earned $6.6 billion in
2010.
Ford previously planned to
wait to resume its dividend until
it achieved investment-grade sta-
tus. Fords credit sank to so-
called junk status in 2005 as it
racked up billions in debt.
But Chief Financial Officer Le-
wis Booth said Ford changed its
mindover thesummer anddecid-
ed it didnt need to wait for the
ratings agencies to act.
Ford has around 4 billion out-
standing shares, so Fords payout
will be around $200 million each
quarter, Booth said.
Ford stock fell 33 cents, or
nearly 3 percent, to close at
$10.75 in a market that was rat-
tled by European economic
woes.

Slightly warmer
air will move into
town today com-
pared to yester-
day, but another
cold wave will
start to move in
tonight. As it
does, we can
expect nothing
more than some
cloudiness and
some flurries;
but, since the air
will become very
dry at all levels
of the atmos-
phere, we can
also expect to
see a good deal
of sunshine this
weekend. In fact,
tomorrow will
make six sunny
Saturdays in a
row. But it will be
our coldest day
so far this sea-
son, and under a
full moon
Saturday night,
readings could
drop to near 20
outside of town.
Our next chance
for a stormwill
probably hold off
until Thursday
next week.

NATIONAL FORECAST: A few snow showers will extend from the eastern Great Lakes through north-
ern New England as a weak cold front passes through that region. The northern and central Great
Lakes will have a few lake effect snow showers as well. The southern tip of Texas will have a few
showers, as will the Florida Keys.

neering firm to serve as School District

federal-aid transportation related work.

of interest and re-advertise for new state-
ments of interest.

est will be published in (3) local newspa-
