Luzerne County InterimMan-
ager Tom Pribula said hes at a
standstill completing a 2012
budget amendment until he
knows what, if any, revenue-gen-
erating options have majority
county council support.
At this point, the countyis pro-
jecting $118 million will be avail-
able, which will require 103 lay-
offs.
Pribula and several council
members say theyve essentially
scrapped proposals to generate
$2.5 million
with a 12-day
layoff for all
employees and
$1.2 million
from a union
pay raise freeze
because
unions arent
embracing those options.
Standard layoffs are permissi-
ble, but unions would have to
consent to give up12 days of pay
and a pay freeze.
Clearly the unions are not
currently amenable to those op-
tions, said council Chairman
Jim Bobeck.
The other options offered by
Pribula:
A tax increase less than the
3.93 percent hike already reject-
ed by council. The following rev-
enue is projected by various tax
hikes: 1percent, $885,742; 2 per-
cent, $1.77 million; or 3 percent,
$2.66 million.
Eliminate the homestead
deduction on primary residenc-
es to generate $4.2 million.
About 80,000 property owners
receive the break, which
amounts to about $52.
Use $2 million in capital
funding borrowed with interest
in the past to help pay this years
$25 million debt repayment tab.
Obtaining a $2 million cash
advance on 2011back-tax liens, a
practice known as monetization.

the RFP draft or decision.
Vinsko said he has been ad-

STATE COLLEGE Penn
State trustees say they decided
to oust Joe Paterno in part be-
cause the football coach didnt
meet a moral obligation to do
more to alert authorities about a
child sex abuse
allegation
against a re-
tired assistant
coach.
Trustees in-
terviewed
Thursday by
The Associated
Press also cited
statements
from Paterno
in the days and
hours leading
to his dismissal Nov. 9 after
nearly a half-century of leading
the Nittany Lions that they
felt challenged the Board of
Trustees authority. Members
saw that as inappropriate, par-
ticularly at a time of intense
scrutiny over the case of former

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C.
The race for the Republican
presidential nomination took a
turn toward the South Carolina
surreal Thursday as Rick Perry
droppedout, Newt Gingrichfaced
stunning allegations from an ex-
wife and Mitt Romney struggled
to maintain a sha-
ky front-runners
standing.
An aggressive
evening debate
capped the bewil-
dering day.
Former Sen.
Rick Santorum played aggressor
for much of the night, struggling
toinject himself intowhat seemed
increasingly like a two-way race
withless than48hours remaining
until the South Carolina polls
open on Saturday. He accused
Gingrich and Romney of playing
footsies with the left when it
came to health care. Both men re-
jected the allegations.
The debate began a few hours
after first word that Romney had
been stripped of his Iowa caucus
victory, and then had been stung
by Perrys withdrawal and endor-
sement of Gingrich.
Gingrich, in turn, was ac-
cusedbyanex-wifeof seek-
inganopenmarriagesohe
could keep his mistress.
Newts not perfect,
but who among us is,
said Perry, abruptly
quitting the race just
before the first-in-the-South pri-
mary.
His decision to end a once-
promising candidacy left Rom-
ney, Gingrich, SantorumandTex-
as Rep. Ron Paul the remaining
contenders in the race to pick a
Republican to challenge Demo-
cratic President Barack Obama
this fall.
Nine hours after Perry exited
onestage, thefour remainingcon-
tenders walkedonto another for a
final pre-primary debate.

PITTSTON
Fire damages business
Fire heavily damaged Richards Up-
holstery located at the rear of 123 Lam-
bert St. Thursday afternoon.
Assistant Fire Chief Bill Williams said
the fire appeared to be accidental, but
the exact cause is unknown.
It was reported at 12:56 p.m. There
was no one inside the single-story, wood
building. The initial attack put out the
fire, said Williams. The building was
recently put back into operation, said
Williams.
Assisting Pittston were fire depart-
ments from Jenkins Township and
Avoca and the Pittston ambulance.
WASHINGTON, D.C.
More help to warm homes
U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, on
Thursday announced Pennsylvania will
receive $52.3 million in additional Low
Income Home Energy Assistance Pro-
gram funds to help low-income and
older Pennsylvanians with their heating
costs.
Hard-working Pennsylvania families
and our older citizens
are struggling to make
ends meet this winter.
This funding will help
more Pennsylvanians
warm their homes
during the coldest
portion of the winter,
Casey said in a release.
The program is
administered by the Department of
Health and Human Services and is
designed to assist low income house-
holds, particularly those with the lowest
incomes that pay a high proportion of
household income for home energy.
The LIHEAP funds released Thurs-
day bring Pennsylvanias total allocation
for fiscal year 2012 to over $209 million.

Illegal dumpsites have been a com-
mon problem on Earth Conservancy
property for years, but none have been
larger thanthesitediscoveredthis week
in a secluded area of Plymouth Town-
ship.
The illegal dumpsite is located at the
end of Jersey Road in the Avondale Hill
areaandencompassespropertiesowned
byEarthConservancyandUGI Utilities.
Tonsof constructiondebris, furniture,
carpet and household garbage are
strewn down the hill while about 100
tiresarescatteredthroughoutthewoods

Jacqueline Dickman, director of pub-
lic affairs and development for Earth
Conservancy, said much of the trash
doesnt show signs of decomposition,
leading the organization to believe the
activity is recent.
WeworkwiththePennsylvaniaEnvi-
ronmental Council to clean up illegal
dumpsites every year, and this is one of
the worst ones weve had, Dickman
said.
According to Dickman, its likely the
tires were dumped in the area first, and
the illegal activity snowballed from
there. The Plymouth Township site
highlights a problem that seems to be
getting worse, she said.
This fall we had a number of new
dump sites appear. Its not a seasonal
thing anymore, its a year-round prob-
lem, Dickman said. I dont know if it
has anythingtodowiththerecent flood-
ing.
DumpingonEarthConservancyprop-
ertyhas beena persistent problem, part-
lybecausemuchof theacreageisseclud-
edandaccessible via dirt roads.
Dickman said once the Plymouth
Township site is cleaned up, Earth Con-
servancy will restrict access.
UGI is taking the lead in the cleanup
effort, which should begin in the next
several days. Earth Conservancy and
Plymouth Township will also help out,
Dickmansaid.
Earth Conservancy is offering a re-
ward for information leading to the ar-
rest and prosecution of those responsib-
le for the dumping. To report informa-
tion, call Earth Conservancy at 823-

Fixture in community
The building has been an edu-
cational and research center
since its construction in 1913,
attracting doctors and medical
professionals throughout
Northeastern Pennsylvania to
study and network.
WVAL has been a presence in
Wilkes-Barre and the Wyoming
Valley since it began in1954 and
now has 130 members, some of
whom create artwork in a broad
spectrum of disciplines.
Tonight WVAL will host its
January members exhibit from
5 to 8 p.m. in its new home in
conjunction with the The
Third Friday Wilkes-Barre Art
Walk. The event is open to the
public and held every third Fri-
day of every month.
Frank Rodano, owner of Ro-
danos on Public Square, has
lent a helping hand and agreed
to cater The Third Friday
event at the WVAL building.
The building will remain un-
altered by the league. Prospec-
tive buyers of the building had
ideas to transform the building
in to a storage unit, a music stu-
dio and an apartment complex.
The WVAL building was built
with a glass ceiling that has
since been covered by a plaster
ceiling until it can be restored
to its original state. Maslow
said it will cost an additional
$200,000 to restore the glass
ceiling.
Last week we hosted an
event held by the Greater
Downtown Wilkes-Barre Busi-
ness Association, and we en-
courage other local businesses
to take advantage of this mag-
nificent space, said Sindaco.
Space is now available for rent
to host an event at the WVAL
building.
In addition, WVAL is asking
the community to lend a help-
ing hand in making the building
handicap able so its accessible
for everyones enjoyment.
the medical society president,
and league President Allison
Maslowhosted the closing cere-
mony in the buildings library.
The medical society will rent
office space in the building from
the league, said Mary Lou Mill-
er, the societys executive ad-
ministrator. She said the society
is pleased the art league is gen-
erating new traffic to the histor-
ical structure.
The recent purchase was
made possible by a donation
made almost four decades ago.
Art league treasurer George
Kuffman said the late Edith
Reynolds of Wilkes-Barre gave
$25,000 to the WVAL in the
1960s that was invested in a
trust. Reynolds died shortly af-
ter in 1964.
Eventually the sum grew to
$75,000, which made the dream
of a permanent home for the
league a reality. The rest of the

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN
Bombings leave 20 dead
A
t least 20 people have been killed in
suicide attacks in southern Af-
ghanistan, authorities said Thursday,
including seven civilians who died
when a bomber blew himself up near
an airport used by the U.S.-led coali-
tion.
The attack near the entrance to the
airfield in Kandahar Afghanistans
second-largest city and the traditional
heartland of the Taliban insurgency
occurred Thursday afternoon when a
suicide bomber detonated a white
Toyota Corolla, said Zalmai Ayubi, a
spokesman for the provincial governor.
Two children were among the dead,
authorities said.
The Taliban claimed responsibility
for the attack in a statement on its
website. The insurgents said the target
was a convoy of foreign nationals who
were leaving the airfield.
CHICAGO
Study: Sex OK for heart
Good news: Sex is safe for most
heart patients. If youre healthy enough
to walk up two flights of stairs without
chest pain or gasping for breath, you
can have a love life.
That advice from a leading doctors
group on Thursday addresses one of
the most pressing, least discussed
issues facing survivors of heart attacks
and other heart patients.
In its first science-based recommen-
dations on the subject, the American
Heart Association says having sex only
slightly raises the chance for a heart
attack. And thats true for people with
and without heart disease.
Surprisingly, despite the higher risk
for a heart patient to have a second
attack, theres no evidence that they
have more sex-related heart attacks
than people without cardiac disease.
Heart patients should get a doctors
OK before engaging in sexual activity.

Pakistan PM defends self
Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani
appeared before a Supreme Court pan-
el Thursday to defend himself in con-
tempt of court proceedings, succeeding
in staving off an immediate ruling in a
high-stakes case that could lead to his
ouster and jeopardize his partys hold
on government.
Earlier this week, the high court
initiated contempt proceedings against
Gilani, contending he had deliberately
ignored their frequent demands to
pursue longstanding corruption allega-
tions against his boss, President Asif
Ali Zardari. The case, involving a mon-
ey-laundering charge in Switzerland
against Zardari and his late wife, for-
mer Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto,
was dropped by Swiss authorities at
the request of the Pakistani govern-
ment in 2008.

CDC: Teen moms clueless
A new government study suggests a
lot of teenage girls are clueless about
their chances of getting pregnant.
In a survey of thousands of teenage
mothers who had unintended preg-
nancies, about a third who didnt use
birth control said the reason was they
didnt believe they could pregnant.
Why they thought that isnt clear.
The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention survey didnt ask teens to
explain.
But other researchers have talked to
teen moms who believed they couldnt
get pregnant the first time they had
sex, didnt think they could get preg-
nant at that time of the month or
thought they were sterile.

ROMEAyoung Moldovan woman
who translated evacuation instructions
fromthe bridge after the Costa Concor-
dia ranintoa reef emergedas a potential
new witness Thursday in the investiga-
tion into the captains actions on that
fateful night.
Italian media have said prosecutors
want to interview25-year-old Dominica
Cermotan, whohadworkedfor Costa as
a hostess fluent inseveral languages but
was not on duty when she boarded the
ship Jan. 13 in the Italian port of Civita-
vecchia.
The $450 million Costa Concordia
was carrying more than 4,200 passen-
gers and crew when it slammed into
well-marked rocks off the Tuscan island
of Giglio on Jan. 13 after the captain
made an unauthorized diversion from
his programmed route.
In interviews with Moldovan media
and on her own Facebook page, Cermo-
tan said she was called up to the bridge
of the Concordia after it struck the reef
to translate evacuation instructions for
Russian passengers. She defended
Capt. Francesco Schettino.
He did a great thing, he saved over
3,000 lives, she told Moldovas Jurnal
TV.
Schettino, who was jailed after he left
the ship, is under house arrest, facing
possible charges of manslaughter, caus-
ing a shipwreck and abandoning his
ship.
Eleven people have been confirmed
dead and 21 others are still missing.
Divers searched for the missing
Thursday after a day-long break and a
new audiotape emerged of the Concor-
dias first communication with port offi-
cials who inquired about what was
wrong. Inthetape, anofficer, reportedly
Schettino, insists the ship had only ex-
perienced an electrical blackout
comments that came a full 30 minutes
after the ship had rammed into the reef.

LOS ANGELES An investigation
unfolding near the Hollywood sign in
Los Angeles is playing out like a gory
movie script, as police worked to iden-
tity a man whose body was found in
parts over the past two days first a
head on Tuesday, then two hands and
two feet on Wednesday.
On Thursday, some 100 police offi-
cers and Police Academy recruits
searched seven acres of brush in the
Bronson Canyon wilderness park in
Hollywood to see if they could find
more body parts.
Officers, some on horseback,
pushed through waist- and shoulder-
high scrub surrounding a semi-paved
hiking trail.
It would have been a perfect place
to hide a body had it not been for a
single curious dog, police said.
Like a scene from a David Lynch
movie, a pooch being walked off-leash
on the trail Tuesday afternoon tugged
a plastic grocery bag from the brush
about 100 yards from the park en-
trance gates and began playing with
it.
It shakes the bag, and out pops the
head, officer Bruce Borihanh said.
A police search the next day uncov-
ered two hands and two feet, all ap-
parently from the same victim.
Investigators checked fingerprints,
dental records and missing persons
records in an effort to identify the
victim, a graying man believed to be
45 to 60 years old.
Police also checked with their coun-
terparts in Tucson, Ariz., where a tor-
so was found a few days ago but its
not believed to be from the same per-
son, Los Angeles police Cmdr. An-
drew Smith said.
Whoever dumped the dismembered
body parts in Bronson Canyon appar-
ently intended to hide them, he said.
If they wanted them to be found,
they could have left them at the gate,
Smith said.
Some parts may have been scat-
tered or eaten by wildlife, police said.
Police did not have a motive for the
killing, but there was no evidence that
a serial killer was at work, Smith said.

JERUSALEM The U.S. militarys
top officer headed to Israel on Thursday
at a time of mounting international anx-
iety over Irans nuclear intentions andthe
possibility that the Jewish state might
take military action to keep Tehran from
building bombs.
The arrival of the Chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army Gen. Martin
Dempsey, comes at a charged time when
Israel has grownincreasingly vocal about
its impatience over the
international commu-
nitys failure to curb
Irans nuclear program
through sanctions.
Israel, like the West,
believes Iranis develop-
ing nuclear weapons
technology. Iran says
its program is intended for peaceful pur-
poses.
In the past fewweeks, the U.S. and Eu-
rope have moved to step up sanctions
against Iran, a top Iranian nuclear scien-
tist was killed in a mysterious assassina-
tion, and Tehran has threatened to shut
down a key channel for the worlds oil
supply.
The Israeli and U.S. militaries, mean-
while, have postponed large-scale war
games, in part to avoid aggravating grow-
ing tensions between the international
community and Iran over its nuclear pro-
gram, Israeli defense officials said.
A former Israeli military intelligence
chief stoked the growing jitters by con-
tending Iran already has all the compo-
nents to build a nuclear bomb.
If the Iranians get together tonight
and decide to secretly develop a bomb,
then they have all the resources and com-
ponents to do so, Amos Yadlinwas quot-
ed Thursday as telling the Maariv daily.
It was not clear whether Yadlin, who
retired in November 2010, was referring
to the mechanical elements of a bomb, or
implying the Iranians have sufficient
weapons-grade uranium.

ledders, skiers, snowboarders and pedestrians take over a snow-covered street Wednesday in the Queen
Anne neighborhood of Seattle. As snow started falling on Seattle Wednesday morning, the National Weath-
er Service scaled back the amount expected in western Washington but said it would still be a significant
event. The total in the city would likely be 3 to 6 inches, meteorologist Dustin Guy says. More is likely in south-
west Washington, 4 to 8 inches, while less is expected in the northwest interior, 1 to 2 inches.

WILKES-BARRE A Hughes-
town man serving a federal pris-
on sentence on mail fraud and
money laundering charges was
sentenced Thursday in Luzerne
County Court to four years pro-
bation for writing a bad check
for $25,000.
August Stile, 47, of Rock
Street, was sentenced on a sin-
gle misdemeanor count of writ-
ing a bad check to which he
pleaded no contest before Lu-
zerne County Senior Judge Ken-
neth Brown.
According to court papers,
Stile wrote a check for $25,000
to Dan Meranti on Nov. 18, 2010.
Prosecutors say the two men en-
tered into a business venture
and Meranti was seeking a re-
payment of the $25,000.
Brown said Stile must serve
his sentence consecutively to a
federal prison sentence he is
serving and must pay $25,000 in
restitution.
On Nov. 15, Stile was sen-
tenced to 14 months in federal
prison, fol-
lowed by three
years, eight
months of su-
pervised re-
lease. His sen-
tencing stems
from a 2001
case and a re-
cent revocation
of his original
sentence by vi-
olating his pro-
bation after
writing the bad check.
Stile was originally indicted in
March 2001 on charges of wire
fraud, mail fraud, bank fraud and
money laundering charges and
found guilty of the charges at an
August 2002 jury trial.
A federal judge sentenced
Stile to 46 months in prison and
five years of supervised release
in April 2003. Stile was released
from prison in January 2007 and
began serving his supervised re-
lease. As part of that release,
Stile was not to commit any oth-
er offenses and pay $400 per
month toward restitution.
Prosecutors say Stile issued
two invalid checks, one for
$200,000 for a business deal for
the purchase of a hotel and casi-
no in Costa Rica and the check
to Meranti both leading to a
violation of his supervised re-
lease and his November resen-
tencing.
According to an Associated
Press story published in April
2001, Stile was sentenced to six
to 23 months in Monroe County
prison on charges he violated pa-
role in another bad check case.
The story indicates a $25,000
check was written to Kaiser
Equipment to cover the costs of
equipment. Stile pleaded guilty
to the related charge in Novem-
ber 1999 and was sentenced to
two years probation.
The AP story said Stile, who
then operated Weller Financial,
paid no restitution and tested
positive for cocaine during a vis-
it to the Monroe County Proba-
tion Office, leading to the prison
term.

JACKSONTWP. The State
Correctional Institutionat Dal-
las was placed on lockdown
status on Tuesday as the medi-
um-security facility of more
than 2,000 male inmates is be-
ing searched, state prison offi-
cials said.
Dallas is locked down for a
search, but searches are noth-
ing out of the ordinary, Penn-
sylvania Department of Cor-
rections Press Secretary Sue
McNaughton stated in an
email. Eachfacility has tocon-
duct one facility-wide search
each year.
State police Trooper Martin
Connors said an investigation
is ongoing to determine if con-
traband was brought into the
facility.
Lt. Richard Krawetz, com-
mander of the state police
criminal investigations unit for
Troop P, said he could not
confirm or deny allegations
that a correctional officer was
peddlingcontrabandinsidethe
facility.
Generally speaking, Kra-
wetz said state police routinely
conduct investigations within
state prisons.
RobinLucas, public informa-
tion officer at SCI-Dallas, said
the superintendent Jerome
Walsh ordered the lockdown
Tuesday morning.

Lucas said.

tion to the public.

WILKES-BARRE It wasnt
an actual firearm but a 1-inch
piece to a handgun.
A retaining pin to a 9 mm
handgun that fell out of a coat
pocket allegedly worn by Regi-
nald Taylor during a strip search
was enough for Senior District
Judge Andrew Barilla to send
four firearm offenses to Luzerne
County Court.
Taylor, 28, andChristianHaul-
combe, 27, were charged by city
police after a rifle and pieces to a
handgun were found inside a ve-
hicle during a traffic stop on Am-
ber Lane on Oct. 26.
Three other passengers inside
the vehicle were not charged, de-
spite attempting to hide the rifle
and carrying other pieces to the
handgun, Taylors attorney, Jo-
seph Sklarosky Sr., and Haul-
combes attorney, John Dono-
van, said during a preliminary
hearing in Wilkes-Barre Central
Court on Thursday.
Officer Corey Dumont, the on-
ly witness called to testify by As-
sistant District AttorneyJill Mat-
thews, said he charged Taylor
and Haulcombe with firearm of-
fenses because they have prior
criminal convictions that prohib-
it the possession of guns.
Dumont said he noticed four
people inside the vehicle and a
fifth person lying on a rifle in the
rear cargo area of the BMW. No
one admittedtoowningthe rifle,
he said.
Dumont saidpat-downsearch-
es were conducted, and the slide
and barrel to the handgun were
found on a passenger who was
not charged.
Taylor, Haulcombe and the
three other passengers were tak-
en to Wilkes-Barre Police Head-
quarters, where Dumont alleged
a retaining pin to the handgun
fell out of Taylors coat pocket
during a strip search.
Matthews argued that Haul-
combe, the owner and driver of
the BMW, was responsible for
the passengers and items inside
the car, including the guns as the
reason why he was charged with
firearm offenses.
Taylor and Haulcombe face
charges of illegal possession of a
firearm, firearms not to be car-
ried without a license, posses-
sion of a weapon by a convicted
felon and criminal conspiracy to
possess a weapon by a convicted
felon.
Barilla dismissed a marijuana
possessioncharge against Taylor
and a drunken driving charge
against Haulcombe.

andkilledSamantha Claudio.
Police said Beamer was at a
West Shawnee Avenue residence
with his brother, John Bogdon,
andClaudio, whenBogdonasked
if Claudio was leaving around
midnight.
An argument began between
the siblings, police said. Beamer
askedBogdontoleaveandplaced

said he held the gun in one hand
while grabbing Bogdons shirt
with his other as Bogdon threw
punches. The gun went off, po-
lice said, and Claudio screamed

collapsed.
Beamers mother came up
from a second-floor apartment,
andhe askedher to call 911.

fromcollege to enter the work force
when his father became ill and
could no longer work to support the
family.

their sincere gratitude to Dr. Gerald
Gibbons for his exceptional care
and devotion over the years and to
thestaff at HighlandManor for their
friendship, dedication and compas-

fant sister, Rosalie Christian.

HARRISBURG Gov. Tom
Corbett plans to sign newly
passed legislation designed to
provide an emergency response
plan and accurate GPS coordi-
nates for each Marcellus Shale
well site in Pennsylvania.
The bill, which passed the
Senate unanimously this week,
is the third Marcellus Shale-re-
lated bill to go to Corbetts desk.
It passed the House last month.
The bills sponsor, Sen. Lisa
Baker, R-Lehman Township,
saidit fills agapinginformation
hole for emergency responders
rushingtoaccidents at well sites
and will reduce risks to
people, property and the
environment.
Under it, state regula-
tors must write emergen-
cy regulations ordering
the well operators to pro-
vide emergency response
agencies with an emer-
gency response plan and a
unique GPS coordinate address
for both the well site and the ac-
cess road entrance.
The operators also must post
a reflective sign at the entrance
to each well site with the ad-
dress, GPS coordinates, the op-
erators emergency contact
number and anything else state
regulators decide to require.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
reportedlast week that the state
Department of Environmental
Protection undercounted the
number of producing Marcellus
Shale wells, frustrating Senate
and House staff members who
have been trying to make accu-
rate projections about how
much revenue an impact fee on
wells might generate for local
governments.
The newspaper reported that
its analysis of DEP data found
495 more wells producing gas,
or ready to produce gas, than
theDEPhas recordedas ever be-
ing drilled. Of those, 182 of
those wells didnt even show up
on the states Marcellus Shale
permit list, it reported.
Since 2008 began, operators
have drilled more than 4,000
Marcellus Shale wells in Penn-
sylvania, according to DEP fig-
ures, as multinational energy gi-
ants have spent billions of dol-
lars to join the rush exploit the
gas in the formation.
For now, Corbett, a Republi-
can, and leaders of the House
and Senates Republican major-
ities are trying to negotiate an
agreement on a bill to place an
impact fee on Marcellus Shale
wells and update state
safety laws that never en-
visioned such deep, hori-
zontal drilling across
wide areas of the state.
In addition, the state
Public Utility Commis-
sion is working to hire
seven new pipeline in-
spectors and finalize guidelines
for pipeline operators under a
month-old law that authorizes
the agency to enforce federal
safety rules over many new nat-
ural gas gathering pipelines,
such as the ones running
through Dallas Township, that
are accompanying the booming
drilling industry.
Pennsylvania was one of two
natural-gas producing states
that did not enforce the safety
rules.
The law covers many, but not
all, types of the gathering lines.
Lines built in the most rural ar-
eas would remain uninspected
by the government, although
theystill requirefederal, stateor
local permits to cross wetlands,
streams and roads.
Corbett will sign drilling bill

Baker designed to provide

ALLENTOWNThe U.S. En-
vironmental Protection Agency
announced Thursday that it will
deliver fresh water to four homes
in Dimock, Susquehanna Coun-
ty, where residential water wells
were tainted by a gas driller. The
agency also said it will begin test-
ing the water supplies of dozens
more homes as it ramps up its in-
vestigationmore thanthree years
after homeowners say the water
supply was ruined.
Capping a tumultuous two
weeks in which EPA first prom-
ised the residents a
tanker of water
and then quickly
backed away, say-
ing more study was
needed federal
environmental reg-
ulators said they
have concluded that contami-
nant levels in four of the homes
pose a health hazard and require
emergency action. Some of the
water samples, the agency said,
were found to be polluted with
cancer-causing arsenic and syn-
thetic chemicals typically found
in drilling fluids.
The first delivery of water is
scheduled for today.
Additionally, EPA said it will
sample water at 61 homes in the
area of Carter and Meshoppen
roads. The testing, to be carried
out over the next several weeks,
marks a significant expansion of
the agencys probe in Dimock, a
tiny crossroads at the center of a
national debate over gas drilling
andhydraulic fracturing, or frack-
ing.
More than a dozen homeown-
ers in Dimock say they have been
without a reliable supply of clean
water since Cabot Oil & Gas
Corp., the Houston-based drill-
ing firm blamed for polluting
their aquifer, won permission
fromstate regulators to halt daily
deliveries on Nov. 30.
After analyzing sampling data
provided by Cabot, the residents,
and the state Department of En-
vironmental Protection, EPA
said hazardous substances were
found in the water wells of sever-
al homes. But only in four homes
were theyinhighenoughconcen-
trations to present a health
threat, the agency said. EPA said
it might provide water to addi-
tional homes, or stop delivering
water altogether, depending on
the results of its own testing,
EPA is working diligently to
understand the situation in Di-
mock and address residents con-
cerns, EPA Regional Adminis-
trator Shawn M. Garvin said in a
statement.
EPAsaidthefederal Superfund
program authorized it to take
emergency action in Dimock.
EPAs decision to intervene in
Dimock is unlikely to sit well
with Pennsylvanias environmen-
tal chief, Michael Krancer, who
has accused the EPA of having
only a rudimentary under-
standing of the situation there.
DEP spokeswoman Katy
Gresh said after the EPAannoun-
cement Thursday that EPAdoes
not seem to have presented any
new data here. More than a year
ago, DEPs enforcement action
addressed this issue and ensured
funds were set aside to resolve
the water quality issues for these
homeowners.
A spokesman for Cabot said a
statement from the company
would be forthcoming.

The agency also said it will
begin testing water supplies
of dozens more homes.

UNION TWP. Under a pre-
liminary 2012-2013 budget unani-
mously approved at Wednesday
nights school board meeting,
Northwest Area School District
residents face a tax increase that
at present could average out to
$20 to $26 more inreal estate tax-
es.
Under a plan that was present-
ed by Albert Melone Jr., financial
adviser, the board approved a
budget draft that encompasses
about $17.7 million in projected
revenues and an estimated $17.9
million in proposed ex-
penditures resulting in
a deficit of about
$234,609.
Melone said, howev-
er, that at this point the
district is only comply-
ing with state regula-
tions to adopt a tenta-
tive budget.
The real process will come in
April and May, he said, when
discussions are scheduled on a
plan that must be adopted and
submitted to the state Depart-
ment of Education by June 30.
The board passed, 9-0, a tax
rate onreal estate of 9.4746 mills.
A mill is $1 in taxation for every
$1,000 in assessed valuation.
Albert Gordon, chairman of
the finance committee, said two
major issues facing the board are
continuing increases in the cost
of health insurance and retire-
ment benefits. These increased
costs are nowprojected at 12 per-
cent.
During the public comment
phase of the session, taxpayer
Fred Ruggles asked the board
about increasingco-payments for
health coverage by the profes-
sional staff.
Randy Tomasacci, board presi-
dent, said a hike in co-payments
is an issue currently on the table
in negotiations with the North-
west Area Education Associ-
ation. Tomasacci said the board
met in executive session before
the public meeting to discuss
contract issues with the NAEA.
Other than health care, Tomasac-
ci offered no other information.
The board kept per capita, oc-
cupational and earned
income tax rates at
2011-12 levels.
Also, following a
question by Ruggles,
Tomasacci acknowl-
edged the district will
lose taxes fromapprox-
imately 24 flood-dam-
aged real estate parcels in Shick-
shinny that are in the process of
being bought-out by the federal
government.
.In addition to policy and per-
sonnel matters, the board voted
7-2 to retain Carl Majer as varsity
football coach, whilethevotewas
unanimous for Brian Barchik as
varsity cross country coach and
Pete Malishchak as varsity field
hockey coach. It voted to post va-
cancy in the assistant coaching
ranks for these sports as well as
varsity softball.
The board also acted to grant
Melone the authority to explore
options to refinance 2007A and
2007B bonds through a bank
loan.

DALLAS TWP. Members of
the Back Mountain Community
Partnership discussed the inclu-
sion of Lake Township into the
group and the possibility of shar-
ing code enforcement and other
services between municipalities
at a meeting Thursday.
Amy Salansky, a Lake Town-
ship supervisor, attended the
partnership meeting to retrieve
more information about joining
the group. The partnership cur-
rently includes Dallas Borough
and Dallas, Franklin, Jackson,
Kingston and Lehman town-
ships.
I would like to be able to take
back the information I obtain to-
day to my other two supervi-
sors to kind of seal the deal and
join with you guys, she said.
Lake Township officials sent
the partnership a letter last
month about the process for en-
tering into the governmental
partnership.
Solicitor Jeff Malak said Lake
Townshipwill needtopass anor-
dinance affirmingits inclusionin
the group. The partnership will
make a recommendation for or
against Lake Townships partici-
pation, and a unanimous vote
from each individual municipal-
ity will be needed before Lake
Township could join. Then the
partnership will need to vote to
amend the intergovernmental
cooperation agreement to in-
clude Lake Township.
ViceChairmanJohnWilkesJr.,
of Jackson Township, said Lake
Township is already part of the
Back Mountain Regional Emer-
gency Management Agency.
Chairman James Reino Jr., of
Kingston Township, said the su-
pervisors alsosent aletter of sup-
port for the partnerships latest
grant application.
In other matters, Wilkes dis-
cussed the sharing of code en-
forcement and third-party in-
spectionservicesamongpartner-
ship members.
Hesaidmanyof themunicipal-
ities have similar comprehensive
plans that were drawn by the
same organizations and similar
zoning ordinances.
Wilkes even pointed out that
three municipalities in the part-
nership Dallas Borough, Dallas
TownshipandJacksonTownship
currentlyhaveanassistant zon-
ing officer in common.
He said he thought more re-
searchmaybeabletoprovideciti-
zens with better services and a
cost savings for local govern-
ments.
Sometimes these things save
money, and sometimes they
dont, said Wilkes. Its worth
looking into.
Wilkes also said having a full-
time, regional zoning office
would provide better service to
residents. For example, the Jack-
son Township zoning office is
open only until noon most days,
whichcouldbeahindrancetothe
permitting process for residents.

The businessman this week explained his motivation for donating $7.5
million to help repair cracks near the top of the earthquake-damaged
monument. It could use a little repair work, he said, and I wanted
people to get to see it as soon as possible.
Theres no such thing
as an unearned utopia
T
he United States is a nation that relies
solely on the self-determination of its
citizens for its prosperity and ultimate-
ly its survival. The protests taking place on
Wall Street are not the exemplification of a
society that is determined to persevere,
but one that wants only to watch the world
pass it by because it is easier.
The 1 percent that supposedly controls
most all the wealth more than likely
earned it.
I cannot understand why any person
would want to live by the merits of others
rather than to achieve for themselves. The
idea that they are openly campaigning for
a socialistic system seems odd to me, since
I am willing to bet that many of them
could not define it if asked.
The belief that those on Wall Street are
greedy is one of little substance, not be-
cause avarice is nonexistent but because it
is human nature to be greedy. For exam-
ple: Those who protest want the wealth
spread, to receive without cause, to
achieve without effort, a society where all
people are expected to give and in turn
receive yet do not give or receive.
Thomas More was wrong in 1516, and he
will be wrong as long as mankind survives.
Socialism, or any form of utopia, will never
be pragmatic.

Rejection of oil pipeline
death knell for economy
W
hat is President Obama thinking?
The pipeline from Canada is highly
needed.
All he apparently cares about is getting
his supporters to stay by his side. Some of
his donors would cut off funds if he doesnt
reject the pipeline.
In a 2011 Republican debate in Iowa,
presidential contender Newt Gingrich
said, It is utterly irrational to say Im now
going to protect left-wing environmental
extremists in San Francisco so were going
to kill American jobs, weaken American
energy, make us more vulnerable to the
Iranians, and do so in a way that makes no
sense to any rational American. Newt
might not always be right, but in this case
he hit the nail on the head.
If Obama doesnt ultimately accept this
proposal, he will kill our economy and
raise our dependency on foreign oil. This
pipeline would create jobs, raise the econo-
my out of the ditch and, most important to
everyday citizens, lower gas prices.
In these times, jobs and energy should
take precedence over environmental possi-
bilities, and questions such as what if?
should follow things we know for sure can
happen. Obama promised change: Lets see
some good change for once.

THE TIMES LEADER www.timesleader.com FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2012 PAGE 11A
WHEN THEYRE not attack-
ing one another, Republican
presidential candidates are
making what appears on the
surface to be a strong case
for denying President Barack
Obama a second term.
However, Obamas backers can counter
most GOP points and make some of their
own, while recognizing the handicap of an
uncomfortably high unemployment rate and
public pessimism about the countrys direc-
tion.
As the president enters his fourth year and
prepares to lay out his 2012 agenda in next
weeks State of the Union address, here are
some of the arguments his foes and support-
ers are making:
Obama has failed to cure the economic
mess he inherited. Critics repeatedly cite his
administrations overly optimistic prediction
that its stimulus program would hold unem-
ployment to 8 percent, a figure not yet
achieved. But the nonpartisan Congressional
Budget Office said that, without the Obama
program, unemployment would have been
much higher. And the administration cites
steady improvement. Private-sector employ-
ment has increased more than 3 million in the
past two years, after dropping 4.2 million in
2009.
He has failed to unite the country and is
creating class warfare. Obama oversold his
ability to end partisan discord in Washington
and bears considerable responsibility for
failing to reach out to top Republicans. But
the GOP also deserves blame for resisting his
initiatives from the start, especially Senate
Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for pro-
claiming in 2010 that his main goal was to
deny Obama a second term. The class war-
fare charge stems from Obamas effort to
reduce the nations growing income inequal-
ity.
Obamas re-election wont end partisan
gridlock, but election of a Republican presi-
dent and Senate might lead to needed chang-
es. Both are probably true to some degree. An
Obama second term would be tough if Repub-
licans keep opposing everything he proposes.
But even if the GOP achieves its electoral
goals, efforts to repeal the health care and
Dodd-Frank financial regulation laws could tie
lawmakers up in partisan knots.
Obamas foreign policy has been weak
and failed to halt Irans nuclear development.
A favorite GOP target has been the phrase,
attributed to an unnamed adviser in a New
Yorker article, that Obama was leading from
behind in dealing with the revolution in
Libya. But Obama has pushed ever stronger
sanctions against Iran, and working with
European leaders behind the scenes helped
oust Moammar Gadhafi and facilitate change
in Egypt.
Moreover, Obama has achieved significant
success overseas.
His administrations more targeted effort
has reduced al-Qaidas effectiveness by killing
many top leaders, notably Osama bin Laden.
Obama ended the Iraq war and launched U.S.
withdrawal from Afghanistan while seeking to
strengthen government forces.
Finally, Obama kept many 2008 promises:
His aggressive effort rescued the economy
from collapse; he passed the nations first
comprehensive health care measure and
greater regulation of financial markets; and he
moderated the tone of U.S. foreign policy.
Other initiatives failed, including a cap and
trade program to cope with climate change
and closing the Guantanamo prison for sus-
pected terrorists.
Like many presidents facing re-election,
Obamas record is mixed.
Ronald Reagan underwent a deep recession
before the economy strengthened in 1984, Bill
Clinton suffered significant first-term failures
but spurred economic growth and passed a
long-awaited welfare reform bill, while Ge-
orge W. Bush rode the publics post-9/11
support of his war on terror to a narrow tri-
umph.
In the end, voters will decide whose version
of Obamas record to accept.
Carl P. Leubsdorf is the former Washington bureau
chief of the Dallas Morning News. Readers may

dorf@gmail.com.

FTER THE Wikipe-
dia-driven Internet
blackout Wednesday,
its a safe bet that ev-
ery high school student with an
overduehomeworkassignment
is well clued in to the debate
over regulating online piracy.
The 24-hour shutdown of the
English-language version of the
do-it-yourself encyclopedia was
launched as a protest against
pending federal legislation be-
ing pushed by Hollywood stu-
dios, music labels, cable firms
and traditional media compa-
nies.
The protest was all but un-
avoidable online from the
black placard placed across
Googles home page to the esti-
mated 7,000 other sites that
sought in some way to raise
awareness.
That speaks to both the pow-
er of the Web and the changing
face of discourse about major
public policy issues facing Con-
gress in a digital age. The Inter-
net providers concern is that
while the need to crack down
on piracy is undisputed its
just as critical to get it right.
Under versions of the antipi-
racy measure being debated in
the U.S. Senate and House, the
digital providers contend that
websites could be blocked over
a single errant link to copy-
righted material buried in a
mountain of webpages.
Clearly, thats not a workable
approach.
Certainly, its good that the
Senate likely will look at reca-
librating its proposal. The hope
on all sides of this debate
should be that Congress comes
upwithantipiracyrules that are
both reasonable and workable.

We like plenty of the long-

customed to Graham. He has
been a fixture at WVIA-FM
since its start, nearly 40 years
ago. Hes our guest on many a
weeknight, or maybe we are his.
We get together around 7, usu-
ally in the kitchen, sometimes
the car. We spend quality min-
utes, maybe even a few hours.
Hebegins withjazz; weunwind.
While we eat, he plays music
not heard elsewhere on the ra-
dio dial. He talks about singer-
songwriters, new tracks and in-
dependent labels; we learn.
When he marks an occasion,
such as Martin Luther King Jr.
Day, with the appropriate song
selection, we nod approvingly.
Ona day whenthe stockmarket
nosedives and Graham puts to-
gether a playlist that includes a
Depression-era tune, we chuck-
le.
We await Grahams roundup
of artists upcoming perform-
ances at venues such as the
Deer Head Inn (Delaware Wa-

(Bethlehem). He gets tongue-
tied and trips over titles, or mo-
mentarily misplaces a postcard
with pertinent info, and we love
it, because its George and be-

raw.
For almost 38 years, Graham
has treatedus to MixedBag, a

varieties of rock, plus folk,
blues, world music, fusion, Ca-
jun/zydeco, reggae, new acous-
tic, Celtic andother sounds vir-
tually eradicated from modern

modern life.
Graham, a Carbondale native
with an eclectic bent, is chron-

and admirer of music.
WelookforwardtohisWeek-

Taxes are currently 5.215 mills,
which amounts to $521.50 on a
$100,000 property.
Six of 11 council votes will be
required to pass the budget.
Council members already have
some opinions on what options
they will and wont consider:
Bobeck said hes not in favor
of the one-time fixes because he
believes they are Band-Aids.
He would support elimination
of the homestead break, saying it
forces businesses to shoulder a
higher percentage of the tax bur-
den.
Bobeck would be open to a
tax increase, saying the county
was strapped with debt frompast
administrations. Staff cuts are al-
so necessary, he said.
Layoffs are inevitable. Its just
amatter of scopeat this point, he
said.
Elaine Maddon Curry said
she will consider any options ex-
cept a taxincrease andremoval of
the homestead break.
Edward Brominski said he
doesnt support raising taxes or
eliminating the homestead. He
said he regularly surveys resi-
dents and has heard strong oppo-
sition to any increased costs to
property owners.
Brominski said he believes the
county could function with 103
fewer workers, though hes open
to other options to reduce that
number.
StephenA. Urbanwont raise
taxes or eliminate the homestead
break, which he implemented
during the reassessment to sup-
port home ownership.
He said he would consider
monetizationandthe use of bond
money to cover expenses in addi-
tion to layoffs.
Rick Morelli wont raise tax-
es or eliminate the homestead.
He would consider the other
short-term solutions to get
through the year, saying hes con-
fident the new home rule admin-
istration will identify efficiencies
to cut costs in 2013.
Harry Haas said many prop-
erty owners cant afford a tax in-
crease inany amount, sohe wont
vote to raise taxes or eliminate
the homestead.
Haas doesnt support one-time
fixes, saying council members
were electedto make very tough
decisions.
He had hoped unions would
give up12 days of pay and/or pay
raises and said layoffs appear to
be the only remaining option.
Staff reductions must be surgi-
cal because services would be
impacted if some departments
lose additional workers, he said.
He encourages departments to
increasefeeswherepossibletore-
duce layoffs.
Stephen J. Urban will not ap-
provea taxhikeor thehomestead
elimination. He would consider
the other options
Urban said a tax hike wouldnt
endthecountysmoneyproblems
because additional union-nego-
tiated pay hikes will increase
costs again next year. If unions
dont want to cooperate, then Im
willing to take the hard line and
lay people off, he said.
Eugene Kelleher said he
would not eliminate the home-
steadbreakbut wouldsupport a2
percent tax increase, which
would amount to a little over $10
more this year on a property as-
sessed at $100,000.
Kelleher said he would consid-
er the short-termfixes but agreed
withPribulas suggestiontotryto
weanoff monetizationtoincrease
back-taxreceiptsincomingyears.
Layoffs must fill the gap, but he
does not believe the county can
handle 103 layoffs in one shot.
I support some cuts, but not
too severe, Kelleher said.
Rick Williams said he will
consider any options and ex-
pressed disappointment that the
12-days-without-pay and union
payhikefreezeoptionsarent pan-
ning out. Williams said he wants
tohear Pribulas thoughts onhow
layoffs would be implemented in
light of feedback from managers
about the impact of cuts.
Its a very untenable situation.
Its the price were paying for past
thoughtless decisions, he said.
Linda McClosky Houck said
shedliketoseecombinationof all
options that have been proposed.
The current scenario with 103
layoffs is too extreme, and the
council and Pribula have a nar-
row time frame to come up with
an amended budget and hold a
public hearing before the final
budget adoption by Feb. 15, she
said.
TimMcGinley could not im-
mediately be reached for com-
ment Thursday.

to confirm that an RFP was necessary,
which I did. Regardless, I will get you
something. You are welcome to look at
whatever they have on the bids.
Sinceit becameknownlast weekthat a
$1million donation was used to fund the
purchase, Leightonhas stoodbyhis deci-
siontoconceal thenameof thedonor. He
also had not said publicly the purchase
was made witha donationuntil this year.
Karen Ceppa Hirko, the woman who
first inquired about the fire engine pur-
chases through a right-to-know request,
said two other RFPs were received
from American LaFrance of Summer-
ville, S.C., and Pierce Manufacturing of
Appleton, Wisc. Neither company re-
turned calls requesting information.
Documents missing
Drew McLaughlin, the citys adminis-
trative coordinator and spokesman for
Leighton, said the city did a search and
couldnot locateanydocumentsconcern-
ing the other two RFPs.
Leighton told City Council at its last
meeting that an exhaustive and thor-
ough search was conducted by city and
fire department personnel to locate any
and all documents pertaining to the pur-
chase of the fire engines.
The city was able to locate invoices
andpayment documents as well as a pro-
posal from KME for three fire engines
subsequent totheinitial right toknowre-
sponse, but any other documents were
not able to be found.
What happened to those records?
asked Hirko, the wife of a city firefighter.
Transparency and good record-keep-
ing is an essential part of being a good
stewardof taxpayer money, saidJay Os-
trich, director of public affairs at the
Commonwealth Foundation Public Poli-
cy Center inHarrisburg. Wheneither of
those elements is lost, its incumbent up-
ontheelectedofficialstocorrect it imme-
diately.
The purchase of the three fire engines
has been surrounded by controversy
since Hirko brought the issue to light.
Hirko said she remains concerned about
why the matter was concealed fromCity
Council and the public.
When Leighton addressed council, he
cited donor-requested anonymity as a
condition of the donation.
The city to this day will uphold the
agreement to not reveal the identity of
the donor, he told council.
The mayor also chose to conceal the
donationfromcouncil andthetaxpayers.
Hesaidhewasconcernedthat hadhenot
done so, the identity of the donor might
be revealed.
Celebration encouraged
Althoughthat wasLeightonsconcern,
it was not a concern of the donors. In the
letter sent to then-city finance director
John Koval on June 7, 2006, Greg Dabel,
then the international director for Kids
for the Kingdom the charity that dis-
bursedthefunds encouragedthecityto
celebrate the donation.
In the letter, Dabel wrote:
The donors wish to remain anony-
mous andout of thelimelight. Theyhave
a heartfelt desire to see their community
well-served by the latest and best fire-
fighting and life-saving equipment.
We realize you will want to publicize
the arrival of the new fire trucks and the
fact that a generous local donor provided
the money. Feel free to do so. However,
please keep the donor identity confiden-
tial.
The letter goes on to urge the city to
promote and mention Kids for the
Kingdom in any press release or public
ceremony.
Dabel said any such publicity would
aid the charity in its primary mission to
help children in need worldwide. Dabel
requestedcopies of news clippings of the
dedication of the newfire trucks.
Kids for the Kingdom is based in Gra-
ton, Calif.
Leighton has said that despite allega-
tions to the contrary, the donor has no
ties to any city employee or city elected
official, current or retired, and has never
received a city contract, project, or other
considerations as aresult of thecontribu-
tion.
Melissa Melewsky, media lawcounsel
forthePennsylvaniaNewspaperPublish-
ers Association, said agencies (cities)
usually celebrate donations anony-
mous or otherwise.
Agencies are usually very happy to
say they received money froman anony-
mous donor and the amounts, she said.
Press releases are usually sent out. I re-
ally cant venture a guess as to why this
was concealed. Ive never heard of it be-
fore.
Melewsky said the matter was an is-
sue about government process that for
whatever reason didnt involve public
scrutiny.
Well probably never learn the rea-
sons why, she said.

dozens of child sex abuse
counts four days before Paterno
was pushed out. The head
coach had testified before a
state grand jury about a 2002
allegation against Sandusky
that was passed on to him by a
graduate assistant.
A day after the graduate as-
sistant, Mike McQueary, came
to see him, Paterno relayed the
accusations to his superiors,
one of whom oversaw campus
police. Board members didnt
think that was enough.
Theres an obligation, a mor-
al responsibility, for all adults to
watch out for children, either
your own or someone else,
trustee Mark Dambly said. It
was in our opinion that Joe Pa-
terno did not meet his moral
obligation and for that reason
me, personally for that rea-
son, I felt he could no longer
lead the university and it was
unanimous.
But Dambly and three other
trustees interviewed Thursday
on the Penn State campus said
they still intended to honor Pa-
ternos accomplishments and
contributions to the school.
Obviously Joe Paterno is a
worldwide icon and has done a
tremendous amount for the uni-
versity, trustee Joel Myers
said.
But the university, this in-
stitution is greater than one
person.
The trustees spoke out ahead
of todays board meeting, their
first gathering since November.
The trustees described the
long deliberations in the days
leading up to Paternos ouster
as emotional and nerve wrack-
ing. The trustees said they were
shocked by the lurid details that
had emerged about the case
that week, after having been
given a 7-minute briefing about
Sandusky months earlier by
school President Graham Span-
ier and general counsel Cynthia
Baldwin.
Paterno was dismissed the
same day Spanier also departed
under pressure. The board initi-
ated an internal investigation
into the Sandusky
case and the role of
Penn State officials.
Dambly said trust-
ees had been advised
not to speak because
of the ongoing inves-
tigations but changed
their minds after the
recent alumni town
halls with new school
President Rodney Erickson.
We determined as a group
that the Board of Trustees need-
ed to answer the questions of
what we knew, when we knew
it and why we made the deci-
sions that we made, Dambly
said.
The trustees on Thursday cit-
ed three reasons for Paternos
immediate removal as head
coach. Besides the moral obliga-
tion to do more in conjunction
with reporting the 2002 allega-
tion and statements issued by
Paterno they felt may have chal-
lenged trustees authority, the
trustees also said there was con-
cern that Paterno would not be
able to properly represent the
school if allowed to stay on as
head coach the rest of the 2011
season.
On Nov. 6, as trust-
ees began to arrive in
State College in the
wake of Sanduskys ar-
rest, some were sur-
prised by a statement
from Paterno made
without consulting
the university, trustee
Stephanie Deviney
said. At the time, Paternos son,
lawyer Scott Paterno, had been
also speaking on behalf of his
father.
When were in the biggest
crisis of this university, we all
should have been coming to-
gether, and at that point we
working separately, Deviney
said.
In a statement the morning of
Nov. 9 that caught the school
off-guard, Paterno announced
he was retiring effective the end
of the year. At the time, Paterno
said he was devastated by the
case.
This is a tragedy, Paterno
said then. It is one of the great
sorrows of my life. With the
benefit of hindsight, I wish I
had done more.
After a two-hour meeting lat-
er that night in which Dambly
said the trustees came to a con-
sensus, vice chair John Surma
had an assistant athletic direc-
tor relay a message to Paternos
home to call him.
According to The Washington
Post, Surma told Paterno, In
the best interests of the uni-
versity, you are terminated. Pa-
terno hung up and repeated the
words to his wife, who redialed
the number.
After 61 years he deserved
better, Sue Paterno said. He
deserved better. The she hung
up.
According to Davis on Thurs-
day, Surma never got the
chance to say that he regretted
having to tell him the decision
over the phone; and that the
school was going to honor his
contract and retirement pack-
age as if he had retired at the
end of 2011.
With Spanier in attendance,
general counsel Cynthia Bald-
win had briefed the board about
the grand jury investigation into
Sandusky in May. Dambly said
Thursday trustees were led to
believe the investigation was re-
lated to Sanduskys charity for
at-risk youth, The Second Mile,
or activities in Lock Haven.
Authorities have said Sandus-
ky met his accusers through the
charity.
The case was not presented
in a way as anything we should
really be concerned about,
Myers said. Trustees said they
learned the details with the rest
of the public on Nov. 5: through
newspaper, broadcast or online
accounts.
Blaming Joe Paterno for the
failure of administration offi-
cials and the board to properly
investigate Jerry Sandusky is
unjustified, Paternos lawyer,
Wick Sollers, said in a state-
ment to The New York Times.
In another statement, the
group Penn Staters for Respon-
sible Stewardship said the
boards comments have done
nothing but raise additional
questions.
Other critical alumni have
called for wholesale changes in
the boards makeup, and more
transparency into how the
board operates.

the news media for putting his ex-wife
front and center in the final days of the
race, but Santorum, Romney and Paul
steered well clear of the controversy.
Lets get onto the real issues, thats all
Ive got to say, said Romney, although
he pointedout that he and
his wife, Ann, have been
married for 42 years.
All four remaining GOP
candidates lustily at-
tacked Obama, while San-
torum in particular
sought to raise his own
profile.
Introduced to the audi-
ence, he mentioned his
change of fortunes in Io-
wa, where an eight-vote
defeat in kickoff caucuses
was now a 34-vote advan-
tage though the Iowa
Republican Party did not
declare a winner.
Santorum jabbed at
both Gingrich and Rom-
ney, but seemed to focus
more attention on the for-
mer. If Gingrich is the par-
ty nominee, he said, You sort of have
that worrisome moment that some-
things going to pop. And we dont need
that in a nominee.
Recent polls, coupled with Perrys en-
dorsement, suggested Gingrich was the
candidate with the momentum and
Romney the one struggling to validate
his standing as front-runner. Whatever
else the impact, the days events reduced
the number of contenders vying to
emerge as Romneys principal conserva-
tive alternative.

employment approaches 10 percent. He
adamantly refused to explain why some
of his millions were invested in the Cay-
man Islands, how much was there or
whether any other funds were held off-
shore.
Under pressure from his rivals to re-
lease his income tax returns
before the weekend a de-
mand first made by Perry in a
debate on Monday he told
reporters it wouldnt happen.
Gingrich released his own
tax return during the day, re-
porting that he paid the IRS
$613,517 in taxes on more
than $3.1 million in income.
He also donated about 2 per-
cent of his income to charity.
His effective tax rate,
roughly 31.6 percent of his ad-
justedincome, was about dou-
ble what Romney told report-
ers earlier this week he had
paid.
Gingrich grappled with
problems of a different, possi-
bly even more crippling sort
in a state where more than
half the Republican electorate
is evangelical.
In an interview scheduled to air on
ABC News, Marianne Gingrich said her
ex-husband had wanted an open mar-
riage so he could have both a wife and a
mistress. She said Gingrich conducted
an affair with Callista Bistek his cur-
rent wife in my bedroom in our
apartment in Washington while she
was elsewhere.
He was asking to have an open mar-
riage and I refused. That is not a mar-
riage, she said in excerpts released by
the network in advance of the program.
Asked about it during the debate, Gin-
grich repeatedly criticized the media,
and then briefly addressed the accusa-
tion. The storyis false, he said, withno
elaboration.
He said his two daughters from the
first of his three marriages the ex-wife
making the accusations was the second
of three had sent a letter to ABC
complaining about this as tawdry and
inappropriate.
In fact, the letter made no such accu-
sations. Instead, Kathy Lubbers and
Jackie Cushman wrote ABCthat anyone
who has endured a failed marriage un-
derstands it is a personal tragedy filled
with regrets, and sometimes differing
memories of events.
Those werent the only political
events in the run-up to the Saturday pri-
mary. Television commercials for the re-
maining candidates and their allies ran
virtually without letup, generally de-
signed to diminish each others support.
Santorum, whosefortunes haveebbed
since what appeared to be a narrow loss
in Iowa, pronounced himself the winner
there after all when state party officials
in Des Moines announced he had fin-
ished 34 votes ahead of Romney instead
of eight behind.
There have been two contests. We
won one, he said, and he proceeded to
ridicule Romney and Gingrich as weak
challengers toObama. Howcanyoudif-
ferentiate ourselves on the major issues
of the day if we nominate tweedledum
andtweedledee insteadof someone who
stood up and said, No? he said to one
audience, referring to his oppositionto a
requirement topurchasehealthcarecov-
erage.
Iowa Republican chairman Matt
Strawnsaidthepartywouldnot namean
official winner because the results were
so close and some votes couldnt be
counted. Results fromeight of the states
1,774 precincts were not certified to the
state party by Wednesdays 5 p.m. dead-
line.

ston Area girls swimming team
that leads the Wyoming Valley
Conference Division 3 with a 5-0
record.
When Nina Fischer walked in-
to her first Pittston Area swim-
ming practice four years ago, she
was just like the rest of her inex-
perienced freshman teammates,
willing to make an impression on
a first-year coach.
One problem: she barely knew
how to swim.
She might have been the
worst swimmer we ever had, Pa-
triots coach Amy Hazlet said.
I thought she was going to
drown.

year, Fischer has moldedinto one

teammates cemented their one-

Her personal bests in the meet
against the Warriors are a far cry
from the times she posted as a
freshman and sophomore.
She couldnt finisha 200 free,
said Hazlet, whose team cap-
tured the division title in 2011.
She barely could swim a 50

Im a determined per-

I had to ask some of the
more experienced swim-
mers to help me.
Nina Fischer
Pittston Area swimmer
Barre/Scranton Penguins.
He helped the Pittsburgh Pen-
guins win a Stanley Cup as an as-
sistant coach in 2009. He landed
his first head coaching job in the
AHL last season in with the
Houston Aeros, and took them
to the Calder Cup Finals.
Then he took over Minnesota
Wild this season, and his rookie
NHL season as a head coach got
off to a rocket start when a 20-7-3
record had the teamat the top of
the Western Conferences North-
west Divisioninearly December.
Placinga handonthe shoulder
of his young defenseman Jared
Spurgeon, Minnesota Wild head
coachMikeYeoleanedover toof-
fer some rare, in-game advice.
This is how Yeo deals with his
first run of NHL adversity.
With a gentle but firm grip.
Right now, Yeo said, we let
things affect us ina very negative
way.
Its all been pretty positive for
Yeo since he left the Wilkes-
That was before injuries hit
Minnesota hard.
The lineup Yeo took into a 5-1
loss in Philadelphia on Tuesday
was missing Guillaume Laten-
dresse, Jarod Palmer, Mikko Koi-
vu and Pierre-Marc Bouchard,
and others were playing through
assorted upper and lower body
injuries and an illness thats
shelved top goalie Niklas Back-
strom.
The results ever since have
been maddening.
Minnesota not only fell on
hard times, the Wild fell into sec-
ond place in the division and to
eighth in the conference while
going 2-6-2 over their past 10
games and taking an 11-game
road losing streak into Thurs-
days battle in Toronto.
I cant remember anytime
(like it), said Minnesota defen-
seman Nick Johnson, who spent
last season with a Wilkes-Barre/
Scrantonteamthat finishedwith
the AHLs best regular season re-
cord.
Yet, the Wild can depend on
their coach to get them out of
this skid.
I think hes got a system for
us, Johnson said.
Its the Pittsburgh system.
Its similar, Johnson said.
Hes been a Pittsburgh guy for
awhile, so its quite similar. You
need to play up-tempo and phys-
ical.

above the rim. She had already
positioned herself for the re-

the inevitable of-

The Pittston Ar-

red-and-blue banner honored her
accomplishment.
But the unabashed center
stood 38 seconds and one point
shy of cementing her most sub-
stantial legacy with the Patriots
girls basketball program.
Pittston Area rallied in the
closing minute to force overtime
Thursday, leading to a 56-49 vic-
tory over Wyoming Valley West
that secured the Wyoming Valley
Conference Division I first-half ti-

(After the shot) everyone on
the team said we have to win

THE TIMES LEADER www.timesleader.com FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2012 PAGE 3B
S P O R T S
There was, Trevor Woodruff
admitted, some concern coming
into the game. Misericordia was
off to a rocky start in the new
semester, losing three of four
including a pair of FreedomCon-
ference games on the road.
So with DeSales coming into
the Anderson Center Wednesday
night, the Cougars coach was
looking for a turnaround.
We just hadnt had a good
feeling to ourselves, Woodruff
said. Hadnt played well, hadnt
shot well.
At the opening tip, however,
any anxiety vanished.
We looked very aggressive,
very confident, very loose,
Woodruff said. Once the game
started, we looked like a confident
team. Guys were secure in the
movements they were making.
That hasnt been the case (late-
ly).
Both the Misericordia men
(87-72) and women (56-49) post-
ed important victories over De-
Sales, which has been the top
programon both the mens side
and womens side in recent years.
For Woodruffs squad, it was a
chance to hold serve with a home
win. For TomGriffiths womens
team, it was not only a victory
over the teamthat beat the Cou-
gars in last years conference title
game, but a chance to celebrate a
milestone.
Senior forward Christine Marks
became the programs all-time
leading scorer, surpassing Missy
Longhis mark of 1,365 points.
Marks led all players with 25
points to rally the Cougars past
the Bulldogs.
Both Misericordia teams reac-
hed the playoffs last year and both
lost on the road to DeSales. For
the men, the Bulldogs have ended
their season the last two years.
But that wasnt on their minds
on Wednesday.
It didnt matter who we were
playing, Woodruff said. (The
improvement) would have hap-
pened if it had been anyone else.
The kids played quality minutes.
They played hard. I dont think
the effort would have been any
different.
Coming together for Colonels
On Wednesday night, it was
Matt Mullins. Last week, Kendall
Hinze got top honors, being
named the leagues player of the
week. Paul Huch leads the team
in points and rebounds.
Wilkes is off to its best start in
recent years, and balance is one of
the biggest reasons.
Mullins came through with 30
points tops for any Wilkes play-
er on the season on Wednesday
in a win against rival Kings.
It was the sixth straight victory
for the Colonels (12-3, 5-0), who
hold a two-game lead over the
rest of the FreedomConference.
Were not looking ahead, but I
think theyre getting the feeling
that well do what it takes to win
the game, coach Jerry Rickrode
said. If we have to run this, or if
we have to run that, or if we have
to use this substitution rotation
and use these guys on the floor
theres not selfishness in here.
Theyll do what it takes. Thats
what Imstarting to feel.
It took awhile to develop that,
but were starting to get that.
Off and running
On the womens side, another
local teamis off to a perfect start
in the conference.
For the second straight year,
the Kings womens squad has
won its first five league games
after beating Wilkes at home on
Wednesday.
Last season Kings finished the
conference slate 5-4 and had to go
on the road for the Freedom
semifinals, losing to DeSales.
Coach Brian Donoghue said
the difference this year is his
teams athleticismfromtop to
bottom.
Its all 17 (players), Donoghue
said. Were really deep athletical-
ly, which enables us to contin-
ually push things. Its exciting to
watch us nowdefensively.

win at Northwest
The Associated Press
Boys, girls teams
to change classes
Three boys basketball teams
and six girls basketball teams
will be switching PIAA
classifications for the next two
seasons.
The PIAA released its winter
sports classification report on
Thursday that will slot teams
for the 2012-13 and 2013-14
school years.
In boys basketball, GAR will
jump from Class 2A to Class
3A. GAR reported a male
enrollment to the PIAA of 263,
which fell between the PIAA 3A
parameters of 244-430. Holy
Redeemer will drop from Class
3A to 2A. Redeemers male
enrollment is 229, down from
260 during the current
two-year PIAA cycle that ends
upon the completion of this
school year.
The Nanticoke boys will also
fall from Class 3A to 2A as its
reported enrollment was 243.
In girls basketball,
Lake-Lehman and Meyers will
move from Class 2A to Class
3A. Meyers reported a female
enrollment of 239, which fell
right on the cutoff line between
2A and 3A.
Holy Redeemer will go from
Class 3A to 2A, while
Northwest will move from Class
A to 2A.
Two girls programs from the
Lackawanna Conference will
also be affected. Abington
Heights will drop from Class 4A
to 3A. Blue Ridge will move
from Class A to Class 2A.
John Erzar
WILKES BARRE Trying to erase a
sizeable first-half deficit while at home,
Holy Redeemer aggressively pressured the
Tunkhannock ball handlers and swarmed
to the ball in the paint throughout the
second half.
The Royals frenetic defense brought
them within a point of tying the game with
just two and a half minutes to go before
Tunkhannocks Kassie Williams picked up
where she left off in the first quarter.
Williams knocked down an open three-
point shot to create just enough distance to
keep the Royals from coming back in a
46-41 win in a Wyoming Valley Conference
Division II girls basketball contest.
I was a little nervous after I had missed
a few, said Williams, who made three out
of three shots from three-point range in the
first quarter. But that shot was big for us.
Williams jumper set Tunkhannocks lead
at 42-38 with 2:15 to go and sparked the
Tigers defensively.
Tunkhannock kept the Royals from get-
ting off a clean shot or even getting an
open look at the basket and held Re-
deemer to three points down the final
stretch.
I told them that we needed to stay com-
posed and that we worked too hard to let
this game slip away, said Tunkhannock
coach Amanda Golden. And they did
exactly what they had to do.
With the win Tunkhannock moves to
11-3 on the season and 3-3 in Division II.
The Royals are now 7-6 overall and 5-1 in
the division.
Tunkhannock started the game with an
inside-out attack offensively, scoring in the
paint behind the post play of Lisa Kintner
and the rebounding of Gabby Alguire and
Williams shooting from behind the arc.
The Tigers kept to this strategy throughout
the first half, taking a 35-20 lead at halftime
before Redeemer turned the momentum in
its favor.
The Royals opened up the third quarter
with a full-court, man-to-man defense be-
fore settling in to a zone defense. The
strategy created a number of turnovers and
held Tunkhannock to just two points in the
third quarter. Redeemers offense followed
suit, scrapping underneath the rim for
second- and third-chance points. The Roy-
als aggressive third quarter cut the lead to
six to start the fourth quarter, where Tunk-
hannocks offensive struggles continued.
The Tigers mustered just two points off
of stray free throws for almost five minutes
of play before Williams three-pointer.
I distinctly remember telling Kassie to
pull it out on that play, said Golden, but
Im obviously happy with the way the play
turned out. I just keep telling them in the
fourth quarter to just take care of the ball
and keep making free throws.
The Tigers added three more free throws
over the final minute and a half to close out
the game. Williams scored a game-high 18
points for Tunkhannock, while Alguire and
Kintner each scored nine points.
Alexis Lewis notched 10 points and 12
rebounds for Redeemer.

MATTHEWSHUTT
For The Times Leader
board, it was an assist that put
Pittston Area in position. Guard-
ed heavily by the Spartans
Cheyenne Reese, Hopkins deliv-
ered a pass to a double-covered
Jackie Rabender. Rabender was
fouled and made one of her two
free throws to push the game to
overtime.
Shes finally maturing into
the player she has the potential
to be, said Pittston Area coach
Kathy Healey. She made that
nice assist to Jackie. Shes not
afraid to pass the ball either. She
carries us. But she makes the
other guys.
Down by six points with 3:31
remaining in regulation, the Pa-
triots went on a 16-3 to end the
game.
Hopkins finished with a dou-
ble-double with19 points and12
rebounds, finishing witha career
total of 1,005 points. Teammate
Allie Barber finished with 15
points.
Needing 14 points, Hopkins
road to 1,000 did not come easy.
Reese played stingy defense,
holding her to five points
through the first half.
Hopkins was called on a tech-
nical foul with 6:10 left in the
fourth quarter her fourth per-
sonal foul of the game with her
five points shy of the landmark.
Healey kept her in the game, and
later Hopkins missed two con-
secutive free throws with 1:30
left that would have knotted the
mark.
There was a thought in my
mind. I definitely doubted my-
self, said Hopkins. Honestly, I
think it took the two missed free
throws to actually give myself a
gut check that I need to do this.

In 2011, Dallas won the Dis-
trict 2 Class 2A Wrestling team
championship and lost out on
the duals championship by one
mere point.
The Mountaineers are expect-
ed to contend for both titles
again this year. But that will be
the last time for at least the next
two seasons.
Thats because the PIAA re-
leased its winter sports classifi-
cation reports on Thursday and
Dallas will be moving up to
Class 3A for the 2012-13 and
2013-14 seasons.
The Mountaineers are the
only school of the 14 Wyoming
Valley Conference teams to
move from its current classifica-
tion. The PIAAs enrollment
figures for Dallas next two
seasons are 366, which is above
the 322 maximum to stay in
Class 2A. The number surpasses
Tunkhannocks enrollment of
359 for the next two seasons as
the lowest-enrollment in Class
3A in all of District 2. The maxi-
mum number for Class 2A used
this season and last season was
341.
The only other team from
District 2 on the move is Valley
View, which will bump up to 3A.

Azarenka, who beat French
Open champion Li Na to win the
Sydney International last week,
has only lost eight games at Mel-

three women who can overhaul
Wozniacki for the top ranking at
the AustralianOpen.

PHILADELPHIA Evgeni
Nabokov made 40 saves and
the New York Islanders
snapped a 13-game losing
streak in Philadelphia with a
4-1 victory over the Flyers on
Thursday night.
Josh Bailey, Matt Moulson,
Mark Streit and Michael
Grabner scored to help the
Islanders also break an eight-
game losing streak against
Philadelphia, which had won
23 of its previous 24 games
against the Islanders.
The victory was the Islan-
ders third in their last four
games, and it marked the first
time New York won in Phila-
delphia since April 7, 2007, a
4-2 victory.
Matt Read scored for Phila-
delphia.
Penguins 4, Rangers 1
NEW YORK Richard
Park scored the go-ahead goal
2:23 into the third period,
Evgeni Malkin padded the lead
with two, and Marc-Andre
Fleury made 30 saves to give
the Pittsburgh Penguins a
victory over the New York
Rangers .
Park finished a crisp, three-
way passing play with Matt
Cooke and Deryk Engelland
that worked right-to-left across
the Rangers zone, and beat
Henrik Lundqvist with a shot
inside the left post.
Malkin scored with 12:50
remaining to make it 3-1, turn-
ing a giveaway by Marc Staal
into a backhander under the
crossbar, and added an empty-
netter with 1:40 left. Chris
Kunitz gave the Penguins a 1-0
lead in the first period.
Carl Hagelin scored New
Yorks lone goal, and Lundqvist
made 32 saves for the Eastern
Conference-leading Rangers.
Bruins 4, Devils 1
NEWARK, N.J. Nathan
Horton and Gregory Campbell
scored in a 35-second span in a
four-goal third period that
carried the Boston Bruins to a
victory over the New Jersey
Devils.
Defenseman Andrew Fe-
rence tied it at 3:01 of the
period and Horton and Camp-
bell put the Bruins ahead for
good as they beat New Jersey
for the third time in three
games this season. Chris Kelly
added an empty-net goal in the
final minute.
Tim Thomas made 30 saves
as Boston snapped the Devils
three-game winning streak
with the three-goal outburst in
the 4:44 span.
Petr Sykora scored for the
Devils, who limited the de-
fending Stanley Cup cham-
pions to 12 shots against Mar-
tin Brodeur in the opening 40
minutes at the Prudential
Center.
Maple Leafs 4, Wild 1
TORONTO Phil Kessel
scored his team-leading 25th
goal and Joffrey Lupul picked
up three assists to lead the
Toronto Maple Leafs to a win
over the Minnesota Wild.
Nazem Kadri, Joey Crabb
and Mikhail Grabovski also
had goals for Toronto, which
avoided its first four-game
losing streak since last season.
That was more than enough
offense for Leafs goalie Jonas
Gustavsson, whose shutout
bid ended when Nick Johnson
scored with under 3 minutes
remaining. Gustavsson fin-
ished with 20 saves.
The Wild, beset by injuries
to captain Mikko Koivu,
Pierre-Marc Bouchard and
Guillaume Latendresse, fell to
2-10-3 since Dec. 17.
Predators 3, Blue Jackets 0
COLUMBUS, Ohio Pekka
Rinne turned aside 38 shots
including 18 in the third period
for his fourth shutout, and
Martin Erat had a goal and an
assist in a two-minute burst in
the second period to lift the
Nashville Predators past the
Columbus Blue Jackets.
Mike Fisher, on the power
play, and Shea Weber, with a
long short-handed shot into an
empty net, also scored for
Nashville, which won for the
ninth time in 11 games.
Columbus fell to 2-3 under
interim coach Todd Richards
and was the last team to be
shutout this season. Steve
Mason made 22 saves.
Blues 1, Oilers 0
ST. LOUIS Jaroslav Halak
made 15 saves for his second
straight shutout, and Alex
Pietrangelo scored with 5:14
left in the St. Louis Blues
victory over the Edmonton
Oilers.

NHL lead with 62 points, a
point ahead of Detroit. The
Red Wings were at Phoenix on
Thursday night.
Edmonton has dropped 12 of
its last 13 road games.
Halak, coming off a 1-0 victo-
ry over Dallas on Monday, has
four shutouts this season and
20 overall. He improved to

stark contrast from the 2:57
mark she swam as a sophomore.
She swims the 50 free in approxi-
mately 29 seconds, compared to
her 54.19 best time two seasons
ago. And her time in the 100 free
is 36 seconds faster.
Im really happy about my
times, said Fischer. I was not
expecting such drops as Im ex-
periencing.
Even Fischers times in the
past year are much improved
compared to the beginning of
the season. She shaved 10 sec-
onds off her fastest time in the
500 free swim Friday, posting a
6:48.78 that shows a grand im-
provement from the 7:07 she
swam in her first meet of the
year.
She is just committed; I never
thought she would be doing the
times she swims, said Hazlet.
She worked hard during the
summers and the weekends to
get here. Shes very deter-
mined.
Fischer said that her struggles
in the pool didnt slow her moti-
vation in the pool.
I just really loved the sport,
she said. Im a determined per-
son. I dont like to quit things
once I start them. I had to ask
some of the more experienced
swimmers to help me.
Only one of the 15-member se-
nior class boasted any swim-
ming background as a freshman.
As the class lone experienced
swimmer, Sam Scialpi took a
leadership role as a freshman
and helped Fischer and team-
mates through the process.
Scialpi said she didnt know
what to expect when she joined
the team.
I had taken a year off from
swimming at the time, she said.
So I was coming from a weird
place as well. But I enjoyed help-
ing everyone out to make the
team better.
Fischer, in particular, was a
work in progress. The two of
them committed themselves to
offseason workouts at the FAST
program at Wyoming Valley
West, and weekend workouts
with swimming trainers to im-
prove their stroke technique.
Both currently find themselves
among Division 3s top swim-
mers.
Shes meant to swim, said
Scialpi, of her teammate. Shes
naturally a swimmer.
A librarian within the Pittston
Area School District, Hazlet said
her strong senior class has set
the tone for the rest of the team.
She carries five swimmers who
are at the top of their class aca-
demically, and the hard work
shown by Fischer and Scialpi
trickled down to the younger
swimmers.
Coach started off her first
year the same year as we did,
said Scialpi. So it was as much
of a challenge for her as it was
for us.

reer was stopped by a knee in-
jury17 games into the inaugural
1999-2000 season of the AHL
Penguins.
Thats when his coaching ca-
reer began.
Yeo was hired as a Wilkes-
Barre/Scrantonassistant by Mi-
chel Therrien, and quickly im-
pressed the guys he once
dressed with in the locker room.
Its a big difference from be-
ing a player totally different
job, said Dennis Bonvie, who
played under his old teammate
Yeo in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
You have to somehowget your-
self awayfromthe players a little
bit because youre not a player
anymore. He did a good job of
doing that.
Yeo also did a pretty good job
of positioning players for suc-
cess.
When current Penguins head
coach Dan Bylsma took over for
Therrien in midseason of 2008-
09, he leaned on Yeo all the way
to the Stanley Cup title.
He was great, really a smart
hockey guy, said current
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton head
coach John Hynes, who spent
his first training camp as a
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton assist-
ant in 2009 interacting with Yeo
in Pittsburgh. He has great
work ethic and preparation.
Nobody can completely pre-
pare for this.
In less than a month, the 37-
year-old Yeo went from being
the toast of the town in Minne-
sota to coaching a team thats
quickly becoming toast in the
playoff race. Especially when
one bad break keeps turning in-
to another, and pretty soon, 5-1
losses like the one the Wild suf-
fered against the Flyers keep
mounting.
Is that what weve got right
now? Yeo said, shaking his
head. If something bad hap-
pens, we cant go out and play
our game? I think we should
have a lot more push- back than
were having right now. We got
down and we didnt battle.
But hes not about to back
down from a challenge.
He does a good job challeng-
ing us, Johnson said, and
showing us what weve done
right.
Its all going so wrong right
now for Yeo.
Yet, those who have been
around himinsist hes not about
to lose a handle on things.
I think hes proventhat inthe
first part of the year, said Bon-
vie, now a pro scout with the
Chicago Blackhawks who
watched Yeo work against the
Flyers. When hes had a full
club, hes put together a goodre-
cord. Hes learned under some
really good coaches. I think
thats a big plus. Theyve had a
lot of injuries as of late. When
youre not deep as a club, it gets
tough.
But is Yeo tough enough to
withstand such a difficult
stretch?
Thats the other adjective Id
use to describe him. Hes a men-
tally tough person and coach,
Hynes said.
You know what they say.
When things get tough for their
teams, tough coaches can get
them going again.
As much as anything, we
need everybody to go out and
play the right way, Yeo said.
The Wild can count on their
rookie coach to showthemhow.
Theyve had a lot of injuries
as of late, Bonvie said. When
youre not deep as a club, it gets
tough. But if you watch his club,
everybody plays very hard.
Thats a credit to the coach. You
can tell when teams are well-
coached by how hard theyre
playing.

get yourself ready, thats what
you do, and you still use all that
time very wisely. When your
coach feels it is best to do other
things to get yourself ready, that
is what you do.
Coach Bill Belichick revealed
little about Bradys absence on
Wednesday, lumping it in with
every other player in the NFL

Belichick doesnt give out much
information or insight on any-
thing injury-related. Ever.

being on the injury list but prac-
ticing in full all week.
The quarterback stretched and
ran a few drills Thursday during
the 15 minutes the media were
allowed access to the session. He
ran with the ball in his left armas
backup quarterback Brian Hoyer
half-heartedly attempted to
knock it out. Brady showed no
signs of being in pain.
The day before, Brady had to
find ways to keep himself occu-
pied during the missed session.
You dont go lounging around
taking naps or anything like
that, he said with a chuckle.
You just try to do other things to
get yourself ready to go. So catch
up on your film work and get
some extra treatments and so
forth. Its just a matter of ulti-
mately were trying to be as pre-
pared as we can for Sunday. Im
certainly going to be as prepared
as I possibly can be.
Its not the first practice that
Ive missed over the years. You
come off a game Saturday or
Sunday and youre just doing ev-
erything you can to be prepared.
Youre just putting in extra work
and making sure youre getting
prepared.
Then Brady promised to be
out on the field, and a while later
he was.

received intravenous fluids after
leaving practice Wednesday. It
was fortunate it happened on a
Wednesday and not later in the
week.
Manning texted coach Tom
Coughlin late Wednesday eve-
ning and told him he was feeling
better.
Whenhe got toworktoday, he
had a nice breakfast and seemed
to do fine, Coughlin said. He is
not quite himself, but almost.
There was almost no chance
Manning would miss the game
because of a stomach virus. After
all, his streak of 128 straight
starts, including playoffs, is tops
in the NFL.
A shoulder injury in 2007
didnt sideline him and a foot in-
jury two years later couldnt keep
him off the field.
Manning took over as the ac-
tive leader in consecutive quar-
terback starts at the beginning of
the season when his brother, Pey-
ton, was sidelined after neck sur-
gery.
Manning downplayed his ill-
ness and the fuss it created. It
marked the first time this season
that he was listed on the teams
injury report.
I didnt watch too much TVso
I didnt see the attention it was
getting, he said. You know,
when you get into big games like
this any little thing that pops up
people make a big deal about. We
can put it behind us now and fo-
cus on the game.
Kevin Gilbride said that Man-
ning took great offense when the
offensive coordinator toldhimhe
looked pale before practice
Thursday.
Manning shot back thats the
wayhealways looks inthewinter.
We did everything with him,
Gilbride said. Maybe we slowed
down a couple of the drills be-
tween our work sessions, where
the defense is up and we normal-
ly do a lot of drills. We did a cou-
ple, not quite as many. For the
most part. He participated in ev-
erything and did everything we
normally do.
For much of the season, Man-
ning has carried the Giants. He
threw for a career-best 4,933
yards. His 29 touchdown passes
and 92.9 percent quarterback rat-
ingwerethesecondhighest inhis
eight NFL seasons. Six of the Gi-
ants nine wins in the regular sea-
son came in games in which he
engineered fourth-quarter
drives.
Tackle David Diehl said there
has been a little bug going
around.
Were just glad hes back out
here, andready togo, Diehl said.
Were not surprised. Were sure
he was sitting there breaking
down film while resting and get-
ting ready for today. We know
that he is going to do everything
he can to be prepared for this
one.
Manning took every snap for
the Giants this season.

SALT LAKE CITY Sarah
Burkewas anXGames star witha
grass-roots mentality a dare-
devil superpipe skier who under-
stood the risks inherent to her
sport and the debt she owed to it
for her success on the slopes.
The pioneering Canadian
freestyler, who helped get super-
pipe accepted into the Olympics,
died Thursday after a Jan. 10
crash during a training run in
Park City, Utah.
Burke, who lived near Whis-
tler, in British Columbia, was 29.
Sarah was the one who, in a
very positive
way, stood in
the face of ad-
versity and
asked, Why
not? said Pe-
ter Judge, the
CEO of Cana-
das freestyle
team. What she would have
wanted was for her teammates
and others in her sport to stand
up and also say, Why not? To
benefit from the significant op-
portunities available to them, be-
ing able to compete in the Olym-
pics and the X Games. Those
were the things she wanted and
cherished and fought for.
A four-time Winter X Games
champion, Burke crashed on the
same halfpipe where snowboar-
der Kevin Pearce sustained a
traumatic brain injury during a
training accident on Dec. 31,
2009.
Tests revealed she sustained
irreversible damage to her brain
due to lack of oxygen and blood
after cardiac arrest, accordingto
a statement releasedbyher publi-
cist, Nicole Wool, on behalf of the
family.
She saidBurkes organs andtis-
sues were donated, as the skier
had requested before the acci-
dent.
The family expresses their
heartfelt gratitude for the inter-
national outpouring of support
they have received from all the
people Sarah touched, the state-
ment said.
Judge said the accident did not
come on a risky trick, but rather,
a simple 540-degree jump that
Burke usually landed routinely.
It was more the freaknature of
how she landed, he said. The
angle of how she hit must have
beenexactly the right way, to cre-
ate a very bizarre circumstance.
Burke will be remembered as
much for the hardware she col-
lected as the legacy she left for
women in superpipe skiing.

LA QUINTA, Calif. A little
extra time off this winter left Da-
vid Toms and Camilo Villegas
feeling fresh for the Humana
Challenge.
Toms and Villegas shot 9-un-
der 63 to top a leaderboard dot-
tedwithimpressivescoresinthe
opening roundThursday.
Ted Potter Jr., Sang-moon
Bae, Brandt Snedeker and Bob
Estes were one stroke behind in
postcard-perfect weather on the
pro-am tournaments three gen-
erous Palm Springs-area cours-
es.
VillegasandTomsbothplayed
bogey-free at the erstwhile Bob
Hope Classic, which has drop-
pedonedayof itstraditional five-
roundformat this year.
After playing on the winning
U.S. teaminthe Presidents Cup,
Toms passed on a hard-to-get
spot in the lucrative Chevron
WorldChallengeinDecemberto
spendextratimewithhis family.
He shook off an unimpressive
start tothenewseasoninHawaii
with excellent play alongside
Presidents Cup teammate Phil
Mickelsonat La Quinta Country
Club, whichfeatures the tourna-
ments toughest course.
Toms also got a boost playing
alongsideMickelson, whostrug-
gledtoa74. Tomsmadea30-foot
birdieputtonthesixthholeright
after Mickelson holed an eagle
putt, ratcheting upthe energy in
anoftenstaidtournament.
Thats probably the biggest
crowd Ive ever had playing golf
here, Toms said. It was nice to
play a good round and have peo-
ple energized and out there
cheering for your birdies.
Villegas recovered from his
disappointing 2011 with an ex-
tended break in his native Col-
ombiaandFlorida. Inhistourna-
ment debut, he made nine bird-
ies in his first crack at the Nick-
laus Private course, coasting
through a round he could barely
recall after he finishedit.
You feel that youre a little
rusty, but at the same time,
yourementallyfresh,saidVille-
gas, a three-time PGATour win-
ner. Its a funny game. Some-
times being mentally fresh is
more important.
The Humana Challenge has
been invigorated by multiple
changes including its new title
sponsor, an increased purse and
a partnership with the Clinton
Foundation to promote healthy
lifestyles. Bill Clinton, who will
play alongside old friend Greg
NormanonSaturday, showedup
to the event Thursday.
Enthusiastic crowds also
showed up in the Coachella Val-
leytocheer onanimprovedfield
including Mickelson, defending
champion Jhonattan Vegas and
world No. 8 Dustin Johnson,
who matched Norman at 72 in
theSharksfirst PalmSpringsap-
pearance since1986.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. Dar-
rell Waltrip was nicknamed
Jaws as a driver for his outra-
geous trash-talking. His loqua-
ciousness launched his second
career, as one of NASCARs
most recognized and outspo-
ken television analysts.
But on the eve on his induc-
tion into the NASCAR Hall of
Fame, ol DW has no idea what
hes going to say in tonights cer-
emony.
Ive written 10 speeches and
after the 10th one, I threw it
away, and said I cant write a
speech, Waltrip said. Impret-
ty spontaneous, so Im just go-
ing to get up and say what I
think and hope its the right
thing.
Waltrip hasnt always said the
right thing in a career that dates
back to his 1972 debut in NAS-
CARs top series. He angeredhis
rivals as a driver, and his strong
opinions as an analyst for both
Fox Sports and Speed have
made him one of the more pola-
rizing commentators in NAS-
CAR.
Some might even think it cost
him a shot in last years voting,
when despite three champion-
ships and 84 victories, Waltrip
was shut out of the second Hall
of Fame class. Waltrip had
signed on with Speed as an ana-
lyst for voting day, and from his
perch on the stage at the back of
the Great Hall, his face couldnt
hide his heartbreak over not
making the second class.
He tried not to get his hopes
up this time around, but every-
body knew how badly Waltrip
wanted to be included in the
third class. Brian France called
his name last June, Waltrip
rushed onto the podium and
kissed the NASCAR chairman.
Waltrip goes into the Hall of
Fame withthree-time champion
Cale Yarborough, NASCAR
modified great Richie Evans, in-
novative crew chief Dale Inman
and Glen Wood, one of NAS-
CARs original team owners.
Yarborough from 1976-78 be-
came the first driver in NAS-
CAR history to win three con-
secutive championships, a re-
cord that stood until Jimmie
Johnsons run of five-straight ti-
tles. He finished second in the
standings three times, and end-
ed his career with 83 victories
sixth on the all-time list.
Yarborough was a four-time
Daytona 500 winner, but decid-
ed in 1980 to run only partial
schedules for the final nine
years of his career.
Inman led his cousin, Hall of
Famer RichardPetty, to a record
seven championships. The crew
chief won an eighth title with
Terry Labonte.
Wood, 86, formed a race team
that still competes today in
Stuart, Va., with his four broth-
ers.
Evans, winner of nine NAS-
CAR national modified cham-
pionships over a 13-year span,
was killed in a 1985 accident at
Martinsville Speedway. He was
44.

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pen-
guins head coach John Hynes
sees no reason why his team
cant replicate their success on
the road at their home rink as
well.
After all, Hynes said, he
doesnt see a difference in men-
tality between home and away
games, the style of play is the
same and, bottom line its a 60-
minute game that needs to be
won whether its at home or on
the road.
We want to be able to play
our best hockey regardless of
where we are, Hynes said.
The Penguins have won their
last seven road games for a total
of 16 wins away from the Mohe-
gan Sun Arena this season. At
home, however, theyve dropped
five of their last seven and are
6-9-1-2 overall.
The Penguins spent last week-
end on the road and came back
with three big wins, including a
two-game sweep of St. Johns
that culminated with a thrilling
4-3 overtime victory.
Center Ben Street had the
game-winner in that overtime
game and has six points in the
last three road games. Hes hop-
ing those big wins last weekend
carry over to success today when
the Penguins host the Manches-
ter Monarchs at 7:05 p.m.
The morale on the road is
pretty good right now. Everybo-
dys in a good place, Street said.
We just have to keep it rolling
while were here, too.
Besides, Hynes said, the Pen-
guins owe it to their fans to put
some Ws up at home.
We want to do better at home
partly because its more enjoya-
ble to win there and give our
fans something to be proud of.
Your performance at home is im-
portant to them because thats
when they get to see you,
Hynes said.
Manchester comes to Wilkes-
Barre with a six-game losing
streak. The Monarchs are in
third place in the Atlantic Divi-
sion and have split the previous
two meetings with the Penguins
this season.
Despite the six-game losing
skid, Hynes expects Manchester
to present a big challenge.
The last time we played them
they came at us hard, he said.
Theyre a well-structured team
thats physical, aggressive and
fast.
Were going to see a team
that needs and wants to win.
That makes it more important
for the Penguins to set the tone
early, according to winger Paul
Thompson who has three goals
in his last three games.
We have to get off to a good
start and stay to our game
against them, Thompson said.
Do the things that make us suc-
cessful.

State jobless rate falls
Pennsylvanias seasonally adjusted
unemployment rate fell to 7.6 percent
in December, down from 7.9 percent in
November, the state Department of
Labor & Industry said Thursday. The
rate was down 0.9 percentage points
from December 2010.
Seasonally adjusted total nonfarm
jobs in Pennsylvania rose 6,500 in De-
cember to 5,699,100. Goods-producing
industries accounted for the majority
of the increase. The largest increase
was in construction. Mining & logging
increased for the sixth consecutive
month, to a record high of 34,400 jobs,
since records began in 1990.
Wegmans on Fortune list
Wegmans Food Markets has been
ranked No. 4 on the 15th annual 100
Best Companies to Work For list pub-
lished by Fortune magazine. Wegmans
has appeared on the Fortune list every
year since it was first published in
1998, and has been ranked among the
top 5 for eight consecutive years.
Wegmans employs approximately
42,000 at its 79 stores in six Northeast-
ern states.
Chesapeake Energy, which has signif-
icant operations in the Marcellus Shale,
ranked 18th. Last year it was 32nd.
Google was ranked first in this years
listing.
Pay hikes, bonuses at Ford
Ford salaried workers will receive
both merit raises and bonuses this
spring for the first time since 2008,
reflecting the automakers growing
financial strength.
Letters went out last week to about
20,000 salaried workers around the
world with the good news, spokeswo-
man Marcey Evans confirmed.
The 2.7 percent base salary increases
will take effect April 1, according to the
letter obtained by the Detroit Free
Press. Ford declined to discuss the size
of the white-collar bonuses.
BofA turns to profit
Bank of America made $2 billion in
the last three months of last year, re-
versing a loss from a year earlier. It
offset legal expenses over mortgages
and losses in its investment banking
business by selling debt and its stake in
a Chinese bank.
The bank said Thursday that it made
15 cents per share in the fourth quarter,
in line with most estimates.
For the year, the bank made $1.4
billion. It lost $2.2 billion in 2010.

THE TIMES LEADER FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2012

ROCHESTER, N.Y. Kodaks mo-
ment has come and gone.
The glory days when Eastman Ko-
dak Co. ruled the world of filmphotog-
raphy lasted for over a century. Then
came a stunning reversal of fortune:
cutthroat competition from Japanese
firms in the1980s and a seismic shift to
the digital technology it pioneered but
couldnt capitalize on.
Kodak filed for Chapter 11bankrupt-
cy protection on Thursday, raising the
specter that the132-year-oldtrailblazer
could become the most storied casual-
ty of a digital age.
Already a shadow of its former self,
cash-poor Kodak will now reorganize
in bankruptcy court, as it seeks to stay
inbusiness. Thecompanyis pinningits
hopes on peddling a trove of photo pat-
ents and morphing into a new-look
powerhouse built around printers and
ink. Evenif it succeeds, it seems unlike-
ly to ever again resemble what its red-
on-yellow K logo long stood for a
signature brand synonymous in every
corner of the planet with capturing,
collecting and sharing images.
Kodak has notched just one profit-
able year since 2004. At the end of a
four-year digital makeover during
which it dynamited aged factories,
chopped and changed businesses and
eliminated tens of thousands of jobs, it
closed 2007 on a high note with net in-
come of $676 million.
It soon ran smack into the recession
and its momentum reversed.
Faced with aggressive rivals like Ja-
pan-based, Fuji, Kodak sliced its global
payroll to18,800froma peakof 145,300
in 1988.
Founded by George Eastman in
1880, Kodak turned photography into
an overnight craze with a $1 Brownie
camera in 1900. Propelled by East-
mans marketing genius, Kodak held a
virtual monopoly of the U.S. photo-
graphic industry by1927. In1975, engi-
neer Steven Sasson created the first
digital camera, a toaster-size prototype
capturing black-and-white images at a
resolution of 0.1 megapixels.
But a reluctance to ease its heavy re-
liance onfilmallowedrivals like Canon
andSonytorushlargelyunhinderedin-
to the fast-emerging digital arena.

Chapter 1 1 develops for Kodak
By BEN DOBBIN
AP Business Writer
Photography pioneer has had only
one profitable year since 2004 as
it struggled to adapt to digital age.
PITTSTON TWP. Thanks to the
Marcellus Shale boom, 2011 was the
best year since1999 in total passengers
that boardedor deplanedat the Wilkes-
Barre/Scranton International Airport.
Airport Director BarryJ. Centini said
during Thursdays Bi-County Airport
Boardmeetingthat 464,560passengers
traveled through Wilkes-Barre/Scran-
ton last year. That was 30,588, or 7 per-
cent higher, than in 2010 and the most
since 475,845 took off or landed locally
in1999.
Centini said he doesnt have flight
numbers from that time, but he is al-
most certain there were more flights
leaving and departing from the airport
10yearsagothannow. Heattributedthe
increaseinactivitytoonething: Marcel-
lus Shale natural gas drilling.
Absolutely, without a doubt, he
said. He said a quarter of all vehicles
parked in the airports surface and ga-
rage lots bear out-of-state tags, and
most of them are from states such as
Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee
andColorado, all basesfordrillingoper-
ators or where drilling also is taking
place.
While 2011 was good but not record-
setting, 2012 might be both, Centini
said. If the economy can turn around
and drilling continues to expand, the
airport is in a prime position to be the
hub of gas company workers flying in
and out of the region.
Representatives from the airport
have been attending conferences and
makingit a point toportray the regions
Gatewaytothe Poconos image but al-
so the proximity to the states northern
tier where the majority of gas drillingis
taking place.
Due to high demand, two airlines
have announcedupgrades to the size of
jets servicing the airport.
The first began Jan. 11, with U.S. Air-
ways adding 13 seats to its morning
flight to Charlotte, N.C. The larger
craft, capable of carrying up to 80 pas-
sengers, is in effect only through Feb.
15, but starting March 4, the flight will
again be upgraded to a larger jet.
Also beginning March 4, U.S. Air-
ways will upgradeits afternoonflight to
Charlotte by 17 seats and United Ex-
press will upgrade two of its four daily
flights toNewark, N.J., by13seats each.
The increases will provide 1,680
more departure seats per month from
the airport.
Centini said the Charlotte flights
were targeted because its a connector
hub for flights heading to and fromthe
airport inDallas/Ft. Worth, Texas. The
larger planes will have first-class seat-
ing available.

gets boost
from drilling

WASHINGTON The economy is
off to a fast start in 2012.
The outlook for hiring is improving
now that unemployment benefit appli-
cations are near a four-year low. Infla-
tion is tame, business travel is rising
and the depressed housing market is
showing signs of improvement after
three dismal years.
Thats the picture shaped by a flurry
of data Thursday, including: Fewer
people sought unemployment benefits
last week than at any time in nearly
four years, the Labor Department said
Thursday. Applications last week to-
taled just 352,000 after the biggest sea-
sonally adjusted drop in more than six
years.
Manufacturing expanded in the
Northeast in January, according to sur-
veys by the Federal Reserve banks of
New York and Philadelphia.
Consumer prices were unchanged
in December, in part because gas is
cheaper.
Total spending on business travel
rose 7.6 percent last year, the Global
Business Travel Association said last
week. Still, the job market has a long
way to go before it fully recovers from
the damage of the Great Recession,
which wiped out 8.7 million jobs.
Andwages arent keeping up within-
flation. The department said in a sep-
arate report Thursday that average in-
flation-adjusted hourly earnings drop-
ped 0.9 percent last year.
