Luzerne County Interim Manager Tom
Pribula has rejected the prison union’s pro-
posal to give up 3 percent raises in ex-
changefor reducedlayoffs, thoughthefinal
call may come from county council.
The manager makes decisions about
staffing and layoffs under the new home
rule charter, but council approves collec-
tive bargaining agreements, and the pro-
posal would alter an ex-
isting union contract.
Prison union repre-
sentative Tony Seiwell
said Thursday the coun-
ty won’t see future
union-generated conces-
sions from his members
if the proposal falls
through.
Pribula said county
management had con-
cerns about union stipu-
lations required as part
of the concession, thoughhe declinedtogo
into further detail.
“The management had serious issues
with it,” said Pribula, who plans to brief
county council about the matter during an
executive session Tuesday.
Without concessions, the county will
proceed as planned with layoffs at the facil-
ity, Pribula said.
The prison union – LIUNA Public Ser-
vice Employees’ Union Local 1310 -- said it
would lose 16 workers to layoffs. Three
non-union managers are also slated for lay-
off, the union said.
The layoffs are among an estimated 56
throughout the county required by the re-
cently adopted 2012 budget, which con-
tains a 2 percent tax hike.

people attended a forum Thursday
night on how to prevent the
spread of gangs in their communi-

“Nobody but nobody is not af-
fected by gangs,” said Dones, an

He warned the more than 250
people in the audience about the
presence of gangs locally despite
the distance from New York, New

ASHLEY – Borough council
voted on Thursday to solicit
bids for a new dump truck for
the street department.
Councilman Joe Gorman vot-
ed yes but stated he had reser-
vations about proceeding with
an actual vehicle purchase until
the borough had an opportunity
to review actual 2012 tax re-
ceipts.
“I’d feel more comfortable
holding off until we actually
know where we stand,” said
Gorman. “And maybe if we wait
until later in the year, we can
get a better deal when plow
trucks are in less demand.”
In another matter, borough
Solicitor Bill Vinsko announced
the properties at 70 N. Main St.
and 55-57 N. Main St. will be
offered for sale at minimum bid
amounts of $2,000 and $40,000,
respectively.
The bids must be in by March
3.
Council members also an-
nounced they’re seeking imme-
diate bids for repairs to a storm-
damaged manhole drain on Cul-
vert Street that is spewing raw
sewage into nearby Solomon
Creek.
Council President Jim Mullin
said the bid process will be over
today and work will begin as
soon as possible to correct the
damaged storm drain and stop
the sewage leak.

Kulick’s release imperiled
Federal prosecutors are seeking to
revoke the supervised release of former
mob associate Robert Kulick based on
his alleged use of alcohol that led to his
arrest on charges of violating a protec-
tion from abuse order his wife had
obtained.
U.S. Attorney Peter J. Smith on
Thursday asked a federal judge to issue
a court order directing Geisinger Med-
ical Center to release Kulick’s medical
records relating to his admission to
hospital’s Wilkes-
Barre location on Feb.
14.
Kulick was taken to
the hospital after his
arrest for calling and
threatening his es-
tranged wife, Michele
Mattioli-Kulick. At the
time of his arrest, Robert Kulick was
found to possibly be under the influen-
ce of drugs or alcohol, Smith said.
Kulick pleaded guilty in September
2009 to being a felon in possession of a
firearm. He was released from prison in
March 2011after serving 17 months. He
was also ordered to serve two years on
supervised release.
As a condition of his release, he was
ordered to refrain from excessive use
or alcohol, according to court records.
Smith said the U.S. Probation Office
applied for an arrest warrant for Kulick
on Feb. 15 for violating conditions of
his supervised release. The medical
records are needed as evidence at a
hearing that will be held to determine
if he violated those conditions, Smith
said.

WILKES-BARRE – An Edwardsville
man who police say was high on bath
salts when he called police to say there
were “90 people living in the walls” will
stand trial in March on related charges,
a county judge said Thursday.
Robert Hospodar, 30, of Franklin
Street, will face charges of disorderly
conduct and endangering the welfare of
children at a trial to be held the week of
March 26, Judge Joseph Sklarosky, Jr.,
said.
Hospodar’s attorney, Paul Galante,
said at this point he is requesting a trial,
but he and his client have been discuss-
ing a possible guilty plea.
Hospodar and Amber
Sutton, 27, of Luzerne
Ave., West Pittston, were
charged after police said
they were hallucinating on
bath salts and nearly cut
their 5-year-old daughter with knives
they were using to stab people they be-
lieved were living in the walls of their
apartment.
The girl was not injured and full cus-
tody of the child has been given to Sut-
ton’s mother, police said.
Sutton had been entered in the coun-
ty’s Treatment Court program as a re-
sult of the charges, but was removed
from the program in late December.
A county judge said in October Sut-
ton failed to appear for court and a war-
rant for her arrest was issued. She was
taken into custody in December.
Judge WilliamAmesbury said Sutton
will be lodged at the prison “until fur-
ther order of the court.”
Police saidthey respondedtothe cou-
ple’s apartment in March 2011 “for a re-
port of 90 people living in the walls.”
Hospodar, Sutton and their daughter
were in the apartment. Police said the
adults were holding knives and other
knives were on the floor.
Hospodar and Sutton “exhibited ex-
tremely paranoid behavior,” police said.
Each said the other was on bath salts,
according to the affidavit.
“They were pulling drywall off the
walls and sticking their heads in the
walls describing the people in which
they claimed they saw. They were
plunging knives into the holes in the
walls attempting to stab the people,” ac-
cording to the affidavit.

WILKES-BARRE – Bruce Lefkowitz,
owner of Harrold’s Pharmacy, wants to
move his family’s 65-year-old business
down the street to the former site of the
Old River Road Bakery.
Lefkowitz and his legal counsel, Frank
Hoegan, presented the idea to City
Council on Thursday night. Lefkowitz is
one of two bidders looking to purchase
the former bakery.
The two bids
were: Lefkowitz, do-
ing business as 250
Old River Road
Properties LLC,
$50,000; and Dar-
ren Stucker, doing
business as Beek-
man Street Proper-
ties LLC, at
$52,000. Stucker
did not attend the
council meeting and his bid was not
made available for public inspection.
Lefkowitz brought an architect’s ren-
ditionof what the property wouldbe like
if he were the successful bidder. He
called it his “vision of the property” and
said it would have a positive impact on
the community. He said he already has a
party interested in his current building
at 179 Old River Road.
“My family has been committed to
South Wilkes-Barre for more than 65
years,” Lefkowitz said. “We thought it
was fitting that we take a look at the
property.”
Lefkowitz and Hoegan said they were
not overly concerned about Stucker’s
higher bid.
“The criteria in the bid sheets said
consideration will be given to the high-
est and best use for the property,” Hoe-
gan said. “Also important is the bidder’s
ability to get financing.”

HAZLETON – Michael Leib em-
ploys 116 people at his company’s two
locations, but he said if it weren’t for
government overregulation, he would
be hiring more.
U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey on Thursday
toured Leib’s Hazleton Casting Co. to
discuss how government regulation is
affecting small businesses. Toomey
said came away with a clearer picture
of howredtape reallyholds backsmall-
business growth.
“No question, overregulation hin-
ders growth,” Toomey said. “And (the
Obama) administration has come up
with more regulations than we’ve ever
seen before.”
Toomey toured the full-service foun-
dry for ferrous and special alloys that
pours materials needed for machine
parts. Leib has another location in
Weatherly.
“Too many regulations are costing
us jobs, growth and money,” he said.
“This was a fascinating tour; these are
good-paying jobs, and this is a good in-
dustry.”
Toomey praised Leib and his oper-
ation, noting the company has found a
way to grow and to sell its products
overseas. The freshman senator said
he came to Hazleton to have a discus-
sion on the effects of overregulation on
small businesses.
Leib said if current regulations were
in effect in 1989 when he was starting
out, he would not have been success-
ful.
“We’re all for providinga healthyand
safe environment, but we need com-
mon sense, too,” he said.
Leib said he sells mining equipment
and pumps to power generation com-
panies and drilling companies. He has

SAN DIEGO
Air collision kills 7 Marines
T
wo Marine Corps helicopters collid-
ed over a remote section of the
California desert during a nighttime
exercise, killing seven Marines in one
of the deadliest military training acci-
dents in years.
There were no survivors in the latest
in a series of crashes involving troops
from Camp Pendleton, officials said
Thursday.
Two Marines were aboard an AH-1W
Cobra and the rest were in a UH-1
Huey utility helicopter when the crash
occurred Wednesday night near the
Chocolate Mountains along the Cali-
fornia-Arizona border, said Lt. Maureen
Dooley with Miramar Air Base in San
Diego.
Six of the victims were from Camp
Pendleton — the largest base on the
West Coast — and one was from Ma-
rine Corps Air Station Yuma in Arizo-
na. Their identities will not be released
until their families have all been noti-
fied.

Iraq violence claims 55
Bombs and deadly shootings relent-
lessly pounded Iraqis on Thursday,
killing at least 55 people and wounding
more than 225 in a widespread wave of
violence the government called a “fran-
tic attempt” by insurgents to prove the
country will never be stable.
Cars burned, school desks were
bloodied, bandaged victims lay in hos-
pitals and pools of blood were left with
the wounded on floors of bombed
businesses after the daylong series of
attacks in 12 cities across Iraq.
The assault demonstrated how vul-
nerable the country remains two
months after the American military left
and put the onus for protecting the
public solely in the hands of Iraqi
forces.

Nations plan ultimatum
The United States, Europe and Arab
nations are preparing to demand that
Syrian President Bashar Assad agree
within days to a ceasefire and allow
humanitarian aid into areas hardest hit
by his regime’s brutal crackdown on
opponents.
U.S., European and Arab officials
were meeting in London on Thursday
to craft details of an ultimatum to
Assad that diplomats said could de-
mand compliance within 72 hours or
result in additional as-yet-unspecified
punitive measures, likely to include
toughened sanctions.
MADISON, WIS.
Man cooks up story, meal
A man who claimed to be the new
manager of a Denny’s restaurant in
Wisconsin then cooked himself a
cheeseburger and fries is facing charg-
es.
Police say 52-year-old James Sum-
mers, wearing a tie and carrying a
briefcase, claimed he was sent by Den-
ny’s corporate office Tuesday to be the
new manager at the restaurant in Madi-
son. The current manager told him he
must have the wrong restaurant. Sum-
mers told her she apparently had not
received the memo about the change in
leadership.
Authorities say the manager called
her supervisors while Summers helped
himself to a meal. WISC-TV says police
were summoned and took Summers
into custody. Officers say they found a
stun gun on his belt. Summers is
charged with disorderly conduct, drug
possession and possessing an electric
weapon.

MESA, Ariz. — Launched by a bitter
debate, Rick Santorum and Mitt Rom-
ney are powering into a crucial stretch
of Republican primaries and caucuses,
one man badly needing money and the
other anxious to win over conservative
voters.
Romney was turning his focus Thurs-
day to tea partyers in Michigan, his
birthplace, where cash-strapped Santo-
rum is waging an unexpectedly strong
challenge. Romney’s been put on the
defensive in the auto-building state
over his opposition to the govern-
ment’s bailout of car makers.
Romney took a pounding on the auto
issue in Wednesday night’s debate, and
President Barack Obama’s re-election
campaign piled on Thurs-
day. Obama released a
TV ad in Michigan accus-
ing Romney and the oth-
er GOP candidates of
turning their backs on an
industry that supports more than 1 mil-
lion workers in the state by opposing
the bailout.
In other political news:
• Obama arrived in Florida Thurs-
day to promote an energy strategy that
the administration says will reduce de-
pendence on foreign oil in the long
term. But Obama’s pitch had a subtext:
the federal government can do little to
halt the current rise in gasoline prices.
A new Associated Press-GfK poll
shows that though Obama’s approval
rating on the economy has climbed, 58
percent disapprove of what he’s doing
on gas prices.
Republicans have seized on the is-
sue, citing Obama’s decision to reject a
permit for a cross-country oil pipeline
as evidence of a misguided policy.
• An Associated Press-GfK poll
shows 65 percent of the people asked
favor Obama’s plan to require people
making $1 million or more pay taxes
equal to at least 30 percent of their in-
come. Just 26 percent opposed Oba-
ma’s idea.
Yet by 56 percent to 31 percent, more
embraced cuts in government services
than higher taxes as the best medicine
for the budget, according to the survey,
which was conducted Feb. 16 to 20.
Votes, money, spin on the agenda

FORT MEADE, Md. — An Ar-

plea Thursday tocharges he engi-
neered the biggest leak of classi-
fied information in U.S. history.
Pfc. Bradley Manning also de-
ferred a choice of whether to be
tried by a military jury or judge
alone.
Military judge Col. Denise

March 15-16.

Coombs pro-
posed a trial
date sometime
in April. He
saidthe govern-
ment’s pro-
posed calendar
could push the
start of the trial
toAug. 3, a date
that Coombs said could jeopar-
dize his client’s right to a speedy
trial.
Manning has been in pretrial
confinement since May 2010. He
faces 22 counts, including aiding
the enemy. That charge carries a
maximum penalty of life in pris-
on. The others carry a combined
maximum of more than 150
years.
The 24-year-old native of Cres-
cent, Okla., allegedly gave the an-

MONTGOMERY, Ala. —
An Alabama woman is under
guard at a hospital after she
gave birth following her arrest
in the death of her 9-year-old
stepdaughter, who authorities
say was forced to run for
three hours as punishment for
lying about eating a candy
bar.
Jessica Mae Hardin, 27, was
transferred from the Etowah
County De-
tention Cen-
ter to a hos-
pital on
Wednesday,
sheriff’s of-
fice spokes-
woman Nata-
lie Barton
said. Etowah
County District Attorney Jim-
mie Harp confirmed that Har-
din had given birth hours af-
ter she was arrested.
Hardin and her mother-in-
law, 46-year-old Joyce Hardin
Garrard, were arrested and
charged with murder on
Wednesday in the death of Sa-
vannah Hardin.
Roger Simpson, who lives
up the hill from the double-
wide trailer where Savannah
lived with Jessica and her fa-
ther Robert Hardin, said he
saw the girl running in the
yard.
When emergency vehicles
arrived at the home hours lat-
er, he said he thought they
were there for the pregnant
woman.
Savannah had a bladder
condition common to young
girls that meant she shouldn’t
have chocolate because of the
caffeine content, Harp said.
He said there is no evidence
that the condition contributed
to her death.

“When they first came here,

Leib said. “But lately it’s kind
of leveled off.”
Leib said with less regula-

wading through the regula-
tions and filing all required pa-
perwork.
Leib began his company

Toomey recently launched a

mey states on his website.
“Government waste, fraud and
abuse continue eating up tax-
payer dollars at a time when
many households are watch-
ing every penny they spend.
This is not how government is
meant to work.”

Thursday said Toomey isn’t

“Implementation of these decisions is
contingent on congressional approval of
a revised service standard for first-class
mail, which would make such consolida-
tions possible,” Daiutolo said
Daiutolo said no final decision on con-
solidations can be made before May 15,
whichmarks the endof a five-monthmo-
ratorium on postal facility closings and
consolidations.
The moratoriumwas agreeduponlast
year between the Office of the Postmas-
ter General and a group of U.S. senators
to give Congress time to study andenact
legislation to shape the future of Postal
Service operations.

The same report recommended con-
solidating operations at postal facilities
at Lancaster, Reading and Williamsport
into a center inHarrisburg.
“The decision to consolidate mail
processing facilities recognizes the ur-
gent needtoreducethesizeof thenation-
al mail processing network to eliminate
costlyunderutilizedinfrastructure,”U.S.
Postal Service Chief Operating Officer
Megan Brennan said in a prepared state-
ment. “Consolidating operations is nec-
essary if the Postal Service is to remain
viable to provide mail service to the na-
tion.”
While news of the study was hardly
welcomedbyworkers onThursday, local
postal employees said they have been
working with legislators to prove their
operation is faster and more cost-effi-
cient thanthe workbeingdone at the Le-
highValley facility.
“If youtakethevolumeof mail weproc-
ess every day in Scranton and dump it at
the Lehigh Valley plant, you are going to
breakthebackof that facility,” KevinGal-
lagher, president of the American Postal
Workers Union for Scranton and North-
east Pennsylvania, said of the proposed
changes. “We have gone to (U.S. Sen.
Robert) Casey with numerous facts
about our operations that prove the post-
al service can save massive amounts of
money by keeping this service at the
Scrantonfacility.”
Gallagher saidthecost of sorting1,000
pieces of first-class mail at the Scranton
center is $6.29less thanat theAllentown
facility. He also said doing necessary ex-
pansion and renovation work at Allen-
townwill take“at least ayear” inorder to
make the center ready to accept the pro-
posedchanges inoperations.
“TheLehighValleyfacilitycan’t match
the standard of service we have here in
Scranton,” Gallagher added. “Our facili-
ty is a regional and national leader in the
processing of first-class mail.”

we do here.
“We need Congress to pass legislation
that lets the postal service serve the
American people,” Gallagher added, cit-
ing a 2006 congressional ruling that
forces the postal service to pay nearly $6
billion annually towards retirement
costs for future employees. “We are pay-

Casey and other local legislators fear

“Sen. Caseycontinuestobeconcerned
about the significant impact that the clo-

Dec. 31, 2013.
• Recall the five probationary
union workers before the three
management prison workers if
there’s an opportunity to restore
employment.
Union seeks commitment
Seiwell said he sees no reason
the county would have an issue
with the proposal. The union
would never agree to sacrifice
guaranteed raises without a
commitment that no more em-
ployees would be laid off
through the rest of the agree-
ment, he said.
“Why would they give back
raises if in two more months
they could lay more people off?”
Seiwell said. “If anything,
they’re unreasonable,” he said of
the administration.
Forgoing the raise from
March forward will save
$400,000 this year and about
$500,000 in subsequent years,
he said. Union members are giv-
ing up the raise and also the
corresponding base salary
bump-up going forward, he said.
“That’s $5 million over 10
years,” Seiwell said.
Asking the county to recall
union workers before the three
management workers is fair be-
cause “we’re the ones losing,”
he said.
The county would also cut
costs through layoffs – the exact
dollar amount isn’t clear – but
Seiwell said the prison union
proposal allows the county to
save the money from raises
while ensuring employee and
public safety is not compro-
mised from reduced staffing.
Seiwell said it is “unpreceden-
ted” for a single county union to
come up with a concession on
its own, and the county won’t
“get such cooperation again” if
this proposal dies.
He said the administration
challenged unions to make con-
cessions and “doesn’t know how
to handle it” now that one has
been made.
Discussion sought
Councilman Rick Morelli said
he believes council will want to
ensure the matter is thoroughly
discussed before any final deci-
sion.
Morelli said council members
demanded concessions, and the
handling of this first offer will
set the tone for future propos-
als.
“If this isn’t handled properly,
it could jeopardize us going
back and opening up agree-
ments with other unions, which
would put us in the same bind,”
Morelli said.
Council members have publi-
cly put employees on notice
that further cuts will be neces-
sary in 2013, in part because
this year’s use of $1.4 million in
past borrowed funds to help re-
pay debt won’t be an option
again.
Pribula said he believes writ-
ten notice has been given to all
employees scheduled for layoff.
He said he will provide a specif-
ic layoff count in the near future
and plans to brief council on the
layoffs Tuesday evening.

put on the county’s upset sale in
March.
Tyler Hammond, who has filed a
lawsuit against the city regarding the
former bakery, asked council at its Ja-
nuary meeting why a portion of the
propertycan’t be soldseparately. Ham-
mond did not submit a bid.
Bob Kadluboski, the city’s former
towing contractor anda frequent critic
of city government, asked if he could
inspect the bid packets before they
were open.
“I want to make sure they weren’t
tamperedwith,” Kadluboski said. “You
know how corrupt it is here.”
Council Chairman Mike Merritt as-
sured Kadluboski the bids were sealed
and asked him to return to his seat.
Linda Urban, George Avenue, asked
council to produce documentation
that shows benefits given elected offi-
cials are legal. Urban said she contact-
ed the state Public Employee Retire-
ment Associationandwas toldmunici-
palities are required to offer only elect-
ed officials a salary. City officials
receive a pension and health benefits,
and Urban said accepting the benefits
is illegal.
“Who authorized these benefits?”
Urban asked. “Howhave you been able
to pull this off?”
Urban said the benefits should stop,
and she promised court action would
be taken if council doesn’t act.
dorsed the Lefkowitz bid.
“This will return the property to the
tax rolls and improve the neighbor-
hood,” Sorick said.
Lefkowitz said he believes in South
Wilkes-Barre and he presented letters
of support from residents of the city
and petitions signed by hundreds of
people.
“We intend to take an eyesore and
turn it into something really nice,” he
said. “This will be great for the cityand
great for our business.”
The property was taken off the Sept.
22 county tax sale and listed for public
sale after the county, city and Wilkes-
Barre Area School District agreed to
put it out for bid, even though the city
still owes $13,054tothe county inback
taxes. Thecitywouldcarrythebalance
until the property is sold, at which
time it would pay the county.
The city originally intended to sell
the building for $38,000 to Leo A.
Glodzik, owner of LAG Towing – the
city’s towing contractor – but that deal
was terminated during the summer.
The Luzerne County Court of Com-
monPleas has ruledthe property must
be sold within six months or it will be

don’t mean they’re not
there,” said Dones. “You just
gotta know what to look for.”
Changes in a child’s or stu-
dent’s behavior, the wearing
of certain colors, having un-
explained cash, jewelry or
clothing, could be signs of
gang invol-
vement or
influence,
he said.
Dones

Barre Area
school dis-
tricts and the Luzerne Inter-
mediate Unit and liked what
he saw in terms of the pro-
grams in place.
He also lauded the efforts
of state Sen. John Yudichak
and U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta
who joined together in “Op-
eration Gang Up.” The local
initiative discussed at the fo-
rum calls for community and
law enforcement coopera-
tion to address the issue of
gangs.
“This is not a paper tiger.
This is something that we
could be proud of and I
know it’s going to work,”
said Dones.
He acknowledged it will
take time and effort to ac-
complish the goals of the ini-
tiative whose number one
priority is to keep down
criminal violence.
Barletta, a Republican and
former Hazleton mayor, said
he and Yudichak, a Demo-
crat, put politics aside and
asked the community to
come together to send a
message about gang activity.
“And that message is not
in our neighborhood, not in
our schools and not with our
children,” he said.
The program, the second
of five to be presented local-
ly, was planned well in ad-
vance of the Feb. 9 assault in
which a 15-year-old GAR stu-
dent nearly had his left hand
severed. Police charged a 16-
year-old boy as an accom-
plice in the assault. They are
looking for the 19-year-old
man who allegedly swung
the machete.
“That incident brought
more attention to effort,”
said Yudichak, and gave the
presenters at the forum the
opportunity “to try and take
that negative and turn it into
a positive.”
Brian Lavan, a former city
police officer who is the di-
rector of police operations
and security for the Wilkes-
Barre Area School District,
said the district does not
have a problem with the
presence of gangs that af-
fects the daily operations of
the schools.
The district 12 years ago
placed school resource offi-
cers in the schools and had
the officers trained in gang
awareness, he explained.
Since then, students have
been arrested for possession
of weapons, drugs and drug
paraphernalia, assaults and
theft.
“I can tell you in 12 years
all the incidents the SROs in-
vestigated none were direct-
ly, directly involved with
gang activity,” said Lavan.
But the district’s students
are influenced by gangs, he
acknowledged.
“We’re a reflection of our
neighborhoods,” he said.
“What goes on in Wilkes-
Barre comes into our
schools. We are public
schools.”

SALT LAKE CITY — A new
claim has surfaced that the Mor-
mon church has posthumously
baptized a Holocaust victim, this
time Anne Frank.
The allegations come just a
week after The Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints apol-
ogized when it was brought to
light that the parents of Holo-
caust survivor and Jewish rights
advocate Simon Wiesenthal
were posthumously baptized by
church members at temples in
Arizona and Utah in late Janu-
ary.
Mormon researcher Helen
Radkey, who revealed the Wie-
senthal baptisms, said this week
she found Frank’s name in proxy
baptism records dated Feb. 18,
showing the ritual was perform-
ed in the Santo Domingo Tem-
ple in the Do-
minican Re-
public.
The Mor-
mon church al-
most immedi-
ately issued a
statement,
though it didn’t
mention Frank by name.
“The Church keeps its word
and is absolutely firm in its com-
mitment to not accept the
names of Holocaust victims for
proxy baptism,” the Salt Lake
City-based church said.
Church officials did not return
telephone calls and emails from
The Associated Press on Thurs-
day. A spokeswoman for the
Anne Frank House museum in
Amsterdam declined comment.
Larry Bair, the president of
the Mormon temple of Santo
Domingo, said Thursday he had
looked into the reports but was
unable to verify that Frank had
been baptized.
If it did occur, Bair told the
AP, “it was a mistake.”
Mormon baptism of
Anne Frank claimed
Alleged proxy baptism of
Jewish teen who died in

The local chapter of Volunteers of America launched a new
after-school program that is helping Wilkes-Barre Area School
District students from low-income families. Learning Works is
designed to teach skills that lead to school success, present a
variety of career paths, provide a hands-on work opportunity and
help families prepare their children for high school and beyond.
Local middle school students called Learning Workers spend an
afternoon once a week, January through May, on the King’s Col-
lege campus, where college student volunteers tutor and mentor
them on a one-to-one basis. Volunteers of America has two full-
time Learning Coaches and a graduate intern who conduct regu-
lar home visits. Certified teachers and coaches provide additional
tutoring for all children in the home and help parents set and
reach monthly goals geared toward school success and family
bonding. Students in fifth through eighth grade at Dodson Ele-
mentary, Kistler Elementary and Meyers Junior/Senior High
schools participate in the after-school program and approximately
70 more receive academic help in the home. Learning Works is
funded by the Pennsylvania Workforce Investment Board. The
grant was provided through the Youth Workforce Investment
Board for Luzerne/Schuylkill Counties. Volunteers of America

The Luzerne County councilman, while interested in
learning the cost of “mothballing” the former Hotel
Sterling in downtown Wilkes-Barre, said demolition seems more likely
for the empty building. He and the 10 other council members are
continuing this month to weigh their options for handling the landmark
property at Market and River streets.
Mundy gives constituents
quality representation
I
am not sure what state Rep. Phyllis
Mundy’s primary opponent thinks he
can offer the 120th District that Rep.
Mundy cannot, other than an opportunity
for the Republican Party to win the No-
vember election.
If Democrats nominate Phyllis Mundy,
the seat will remain in Democratic hands;
if not, all bets are off.
Rep. Mundy is an unusual legislator who
approaches issues such as health care and
the Marcellus Shale from an impartial
scientific perspective instead of a partisan
political one.
She has offered a genuine solution to our
nation’s runaway health care costs, and it
aligns perfectly with the approach recom-
mended by the Automotive Industry Ac-
tion Group, American Society for Quality,
Institute for Healthcare Improvement and
other nonpartisan entities. This legislation
would encourage health care providers to
implement quality-management systems
similar to those in widespread use by in-
dustry, which would reduce preventable
harm to patients and also the associated
malpractice lawsuits.
The latter would in turn reduce doctors’
malpractice insurance premiums enor-
mously.
Nationwide implementation of these
quality systems would reduce health care
costs 30 to 60 percent (the portion wasted
by inefficiencies and avoidable medical
mistakes), or $2,500 to $5,000 per Amer-
ican – not per family, but per individual –
annually. The outcome would be much
lower health care costs for patients, and
higher salaries for doctors, nurses and
other health care professionals.
I encourage Democrats to give careful
thought to what the challenger says or
thinks he can do better, and whether he
can command the kind of widespread
respect that Rep. Mundy has earned from
Republicans as well as Democrats.

Wilkes-Barre
Sterling could provide
housing for homeless
I
am not sure why we need another study
or meeting of the minds to decide the
fate of the former Hotel Sterling in
downtown Wilkes-Barre.
We have paid for study after study for a
plan to save it. Then we have paid for
studies that deemed it unfit to rehabilitate
and claimed the only choice was to raze it.
We need a more common-sense ap-
proach as a solution to the Sterling. I sug-
gest we open it to the homeless. In return
for shelter, they have to make repairs to
the units they occupy. We will pay for the
heat and water for one year, and then they
would assume that expense (divided
among the number of tenants).
I realize this idea will not be liked by a
lot of people who are trained to think the
homeless are not worth trusting, but it has
worked in other areas. And if implemented
under the proper conditions, you might be
surprised what will happen.
If they raze the hotel, they will have
many costly studies and development plan
charges before there is ever a new struc-
ture built or other use for the property. In
the meantime, there will be no taxes or
other money reaped for the taxpayers.

THE TIMES LEADER www.timesleader.com FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2012 PAGE 11A
WITHIN MINUTES of singer Chris Brown’s
appearance on the 2012 Grammy Awards –
as he moved liquidly to his new single,
“Turn Up the Music” – the phrases woman-
beater and chrisbrownbeatswomen began
trending worldwide on Twitter.
What that means is that people with
Twitter accounts sent those phrases to their
followers, in enough numbers that they
showed up on every Twitter user’s home
page.
To achieve “trending” was a victory for
those who wanted to protest Brown’s ap-
pearance on stage. They said his brutality
three years earlier should have disqualified
him from a Grammy platform; he perform-
ed twice during the show – clearly a favor-
ite of the show’s producers.
On the eve of the 2009 Grammys, news
broke about Brown beating his then-girl-
friend and fellow pop star, Rihanna. The
images of her beautiful, badly bruised face
were heart-rending. The incident would
later lead to felony assault charges for
Brown, to which he pleaded guilty and
accepted a sentence of community service,
probation and counseling – a light-seeming
sentence.
At the 2012 awards show, Brown won his
first Grammy, for best R&B album. After-
ward, the 22-year-old took to Twitter to tell
off his critics: “Hate all u want becuz I got a
Grammy now! That’s the ultimate ———
off!”
But Brown’s was not the most disturbing
reaction of the night. That came from at
least 25 women on Twitter: “chris brown
can punch me whenever he wants.” And,
“chris brown can beat me all he wants ... I’d
do anything to have him, oh my.”
This is really disturbing. Could these
women really understand what they are
saying? Could they have been in abusive
relationships before and are volunteering
for more? That seems unlikely. More prob-
ably, they are making the age-old mistake of
confusing emotional intensity with love,
and passion.
But the problem with that, of course, is
that it seldom ends with one blow. U.S.
government statistics from1976-2005 state
that 30 percent of all the murders of women
are the result of “intimate partner vio-
lence.” And what doesn’t kill women – or
men – in abusive relationships, can cripple
them for life. Think of Whitney Houston,
recently dead of an assumed drug overdose,
who became hooked on drugs during an
allegedly abusive 15-year marriage. Abuse,
drugs, self-loathing – they can be a toxic
mix.
Before the tweets from these young wom-
en, we could fool ourselves into believing
that they had more self-respect. At one
time, women were believed to stay in abu-
sive relationships for financial reasons or
out of fear. The women’s movement – with
its push for access to paychecks – and the
greater availability of women’s shelters
were supposed to have won our freedom.
Now, the Grammys, and the Chris Brown
twitterati, are glorifying a man who put his
then-girlfriend in the hospital.
More disturbing still are the rumors that
Rihanna herself is seeing him again. Gossip
columns report that they spent Valentine’s
night together. This is a woman who found
the strength to leave him once.
Surely, Brown could be a changed man.
He was only 19 in 2009, and the court or-
dered him into counseling. But if his anger
and narcissism have eased, there is no pub-
lic sign of it. He seems unrepentant.
The only public message is that the
Grammys organization rewards batterers –
and so do their fans, and perhaps, their
ex-girlfriends. These are horrific lessons for
our daughters and sons.

An unsettling reaction to Chris Brown’s Grammy night
COMMENTARY
A N N E M I C H A U D
A
LLOCATING $8 bil-
lioninfederal funds to
the nation’s commu-
nity colleges for ca-
reer development and training
makes economic sense.
President Obama wants to
create a Community College to
Career Fund to prepare up to 2
million workers in the health
care, transportation and high-
tech manufacturing fields. His
proposal also would increase
the maximum Pell Grant for
college students by $85 – a
small amount, but enough to
help many students struggling
to pay tuition.
The proposed funding in
Obama’s 2013 budget is his lat-
est attempt to put more empha-
sis on community colleges,
which enroll some of the coun-
try’s neediest students. Unfor-
tunately, the funding already
has been threatened by House
budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-
Wis., who said it would leave
thecountry“drowningindebt.”
Investing in community col-
leges is a crucial step to putting
Americans in better-paying
jobs. Community colleges have
seen record enrollment amid
the higher tuition and costs at
private and public universities.
When matched with the needs
of local employers through ap-
prenticeships and internships,
community colleges become
the perfect vehicle to train a
workforce.
Akey component of Obama’s
latest community college plan
would institute a “pay for per-
formance” incentive program
to ensure that career-training
students findjobs. It alsowould
promote training of entrepre-
neurs, provide grants for state
and local governments to
recruit companies and support
paid internships for low-in-
come students.
There couldn’t be a better
time to emphasize community
colleges’ roleinreducingunem-
ployment. They will be key to
filling some of the 2 million va-
cant manufacturing jobs ex-
pected through 2018, mainly
due to baby-boomer retire-
ments. Congress shouldn’t
want to be an impediment.

OTHER OPINION: COLLEGE FUNDING
More job training
invests in future
A
LTHOUGHITcannot
be heralded as a
breakthrough, some-
thing noteworthy
tookplace this weekinLuzerne
County’s governmental affairs.
Auniongroupsignaledit was
willing to scale back. Specifical-
ly, the county’s prison union
workers offered to forego 3 per-
cent wage hikes for the year, as
per their contract, in order to
limit the number of
expectedlayoffs with-
in the lockup.
An estimated 16
union workers are
likely to lose their
jobs as a result of a re-
cently approved 2012
county budget. The much-de-
bated budget – which includes
a 2 percent tax increase – will
compel the county’s various de-
partments to soon drop an esti-
mated 56 workers. Many resi-
dents had called for no tax in-
crease this year, which would
have meant shedding more
than 100 jobs.
Against this backdrop, union
employees apparently have
seen the writing on the prison
wall and taken the rare step of
drawing up a possible conces-
sion. For that, they should be
applauded. Their willingness to
show some flexibility until the
county can get on better finan-
cial footing deserves praise.
Their concern for fellow em-
ployees’ livelihoods is com-
mendable.
The proposed deal, however,
packed too many stipulations
to be palatable. Among other
things, it would have barred ad-
ditional layoffs or job elimina-
tions of certain union workers
for budgetary
reasons through
the rest of the
contract, which
expires Dec. 31,
2013.
The county’s
interim manger,
TomPribula, on Thursday indi-
cated the plan was a no-go, al-
thoughhe declinedtoelaborate
onwhyuntil countycouncil dis-
cusses the matter.
Even so, let’s hope the in-
volved parties don’t lose sight
of the larger development –
they’ve started to explore nec-
essary, if previously taboo, op-
tions. Don’t stop talking.
Don’t start shouting.
Find compromise.
The county residents who
pay this government’s bills –
anddependonits services – are
counting on nothing less.
OUR OPINION: PRISON WORKERS
Concession offer
a positive step
The proposed deal,
however, packed too
many stipulations to
be palatable.

She said she would not have ap-
proved Stevens’ bills had she
known about the irregularities.
Burke also expressed concern
and said he intended to contact
Interim Luzerne County Manag-
er Tom Pribula to suggest he re-
quest a forensic audit of the ac-
count, based on The Times Lead-
er’s findings.
“This is a serious concern that
requires further inquiry on the
part of appropriate county offi-
cials,” Burke said. “It is my sug-
gestion (the county) undertake
an independent forensic audit to
confirm if any improper pay-
ments were made.”
In an email Thursday, Stevens
saidshehadreviewedsomeof the
records The Times Leader ques-
tioned and determined she had,
in fact, made errors in the bills.
She also sent a fax to Pribula ad-
vising himof the issue.
Inheremail, Stevenssaidtravel
time entries were included on
eachindividual bill “as amatter of
course” without knowing which
petitions would be delivered in
groups.
“When petitions were deliver-
ed in groups the final bills should
havebeenadjustedtoreflect asin-
gle charge for delivering all the
petitions. Unfortu-
nately, these ad-
justments were
not made,” Ste-
venswrote. “Myof-
fice will work with
the county to recti-
fytheerror. Wewill
also re-evaluate
our internal billing
procedures so that
this error is not re-
peated in the fu-
ture.”
Stevens’ law
partner, James Py-
rah, said he be-
lieves the billing
errors were an
oversight. He said
the office has be-
gun a comprehen-
sivereviewof all its
billings with the
county.
“Basedonevery-
thing I’ve seen, it
appears as if cer-
tain routine en-
tries like travel
time andfees toprepare petitions
got carried over across files,” Py-
rah said. “We are going to under-
take a comprehensive review of
all theserecords. . . Wewant toget
this right.”
Pool of 18lawyers
Stevens, a member of the bar
sinceNovember2001, wasamong
18 attorneys the county retained
last year to represent parents
whosechildrenhadbeentakenby
Children and Youth Services
based on allegations of abuse or
neglect.
The attorneys, who were paid
$55per hour, wererequiredtofile
petitions each month detailing
the work they performed, such as
meeting with clients and attend-
ing hearings.
The newspaper’s investigation
showedStevens collectedat least
$38,517infees solelyfor workshe
performed in creating and deliv-
ering her fee petitions to Pola-
chek Gartley and several county
offices, including $7,293 in Au-
gust and $8,860 in October.
Rules of legal ethics allowanat-
torney to charge for travel and
time spent creating a bill, said at-
torney Sam Stretton of West
Chester, an expert in legal ethics.
The issue for Stevens is she
chargeda separate fee for eachin-
dividual bill she delivered, allow-
ing her to collect as many as 38
separate fees for bills that appear
to have been delivered on the
same day.
Stretton said that would be an
ethical violation. Attorneys can
charge for travel time, but they
cannot charge the full fee for the
travel to multiple clients for a sin-
gle trip, he said.
“If I’mgoingtovisit a judge and
it takesme20minutestogotothe
courtroom for him to sign a pet-
itionandI have50petitions, I only
get travel time for one petition,
not the other 49,” Stretton said.
“She should not be billing the
same hour every time for every
fee petition. That would be
wrong.”
Stevens’ invoices show she did
just that dozens of times.
For instance, on Aug. 17, 2011
Stevens sought payment of $33
for .60 hours (36 minutes) for
time she spent traveling to the
county courthouse from her of-
fice to deliver petitions for pay-
ment for June to Polachek Gar-
tley.
Stevens listed that fee on each
of 19 payment petitions she had
filedonbehalf of clients, resulting
in a total payment of $627 ($33 x
19). That equated to pay for 11.4
hours of work.
Two days later, Stevens return-
edtothe courthouse topickup31
fee petitions for
work performed in
February and June
that had been ap-
proved by Pola-
chek Gartley. She
charged$22for .40
hours (24 min-
utes) for travel
time oneachof the
31 invoices, result-
ingina payment of
$682.
Between Aug.
22 and 23, she
charged an addi-
tional $2,420 in
fees for trips she
made to deliver 30
fee petitions to the
Clerk of Courts
and Prothono-
tary’s offices in the
main courthouse,
andtotheRegister
of Wills and Public
Defenders Office
locatedat thePenn
Place building. On
Aug. 31, she
chargedanother$2,937, whichin-
cluded delivery and preparation
fees for 39 petitions.
Asimilar pattern of billing was
repeated in numerous other
months in 2011, including Febru-
ary, April, June, July, October,
September, November and De-
cember.
Other charges
The newspaper alsouncovered
other questionable charges, in-
cluding 11 separate invoices she
submitted for travel time to the
law office of attorney Andrew
Lentowski inWilkes-Barretopick
upthefilesof11clientsonOct. 27.
Stevens charged $38.50 for .7
hours(42minutes) for eachof the
11clients, nettingafeeof $423.50.
Other questions revolve
around the amount of time Ste-
vens claimed to have spent gath-
ering information so she could
prepare her fee petitions.
For instance, Stevens claimed
to have prepared 46 fee petitions
onOct. 31, eachof whichtookone
hour to prepare. That’s not possi-
ble given there are only 24 hours
in a day. She made similar claims
for bills prepared in July and
March.
In her email response, Stevens
said the work entailed in prepar-
ingthebills was actuallyperform-
edonvariousdaysoveracourseof
a month, not on a single day, as
her invoices indicated.
Stevens saidshemadethedeci-
sion to add a single charge for the
work, typically on or near the last
day of the month, for “bookkeep-
ing purposes.”
“In hindsight I recognize that
this practice can cause some con-
fusion and we will reconsider in-
cremental billing,” she said.
Got $144Kin2011
TheTimes Leader beganinves-
tigating payments made to Ste-
vens after a report obtained from
the Controller’s Office showed
she had been paid $144,554 in le-
gal fees fromthe special legal ser-
vicesfund–nearlyhalf of thetotal
$334,117 that was spent on the
fund in 2011.
At $55per hour, that meant Ste-
vens had to have worked an aver-
age of roughly 50 hours per week,
every week for 52 weeks to have
earned that much.
Thepayment toStevens was al-
sosignificantlyhigher thanthe17
other attorneys who represented
parents, which ranged from $176
paid to attorney Matthew Loftus
to$52,362paidtoLaureenYeager

Areporter reviewedasampling
of billing statements submitted
bythefiveattorneyswhoreceived
the most money from the fund.
No other attorneys appeared to
have charged for travel time, al-
thoughsome didcharge for creat-
ing fee petitions.
No one in the courts or county
ever detected issues with Ste-
vens’ invoices, even though the
bills went through three sets of
eyes.
All invoices submitted by the
attorneys were first presented for
approval to Polachek Gartley,
who headed the county’s family
court division in 2011.
Once the court order was
signed, the order and invoices
went to Chief Public Defender Al
Flora Jr., who had agreed to hold
the funds in his budget, even
thoughnopublicdefendersrepre-
sented the parents.
Flora wouldsigna payment au-
thorization formthat, along with
thecourt order andinvoices, next
went to Controller Walter Grif-
fith, who issued the checks.
Polachek Gartley acknowl-
edged she never reviewed invoic-
es submitted by Stevens or any of
the other attorneys. Flora and
Griffith said they did not review
them either because they be-
lievedthat hadalready beendone
since there was a court order ap-
proving them.
Polachek Gartley said she did
not review each of the petitions
because the attorneys were taken
at their word.
Each attorney was required to
sign a document, known as a ver-
ification, under penalty of law at-
testing to the accuracy and rea-
sonableness of their charges.
They could be subject to charges
of perjury if the information was
not correct.
The judge saidshe believedthe
verificationprovidedanadequate
“safeguard” to ensure charges
wereaccurate. Askedwhyneither

chekGartleysaidthat wasnot fea-
sible.
Thepetitions wereamonghun-
dredsof motionsandcourt orders
that would be presented to her
daily for her signature, she said,
and there was not time to cross
check one petition against anoth-
er, as a reporter had done.
“You have to submit itemized
bills and verify under penalty of
perjury this is your sworn time,”
Polachek Gartley said. “We made
it clear. Youare onyour honor un-
der penalty of law.”
Countyofficials react
Pribula on Thursday de-
nounced the court for its lack of
oversight, saying it had the obli-
gationtoreviewthedocumentsto
ensure charges were appropriate.
“To trust attorneys to say their
bills are 100 percent accurate is
absurd. I don’t care if theyare offi-
cers of the court,” Pribula said.
“Someone fromthe court needed
to attest to the accuracy of the
bills.”
Griffith said he’s also upset the
fund was not more closely scruti-
nized.
As controller, Griffith is known
as an avid watchdog of county
spending. He has frequently re-
fused to issue payments if he
questions the appropriateness of
a bill.
In this case, he said he did not
reviewtheinvoicesbecausehebe-
lievedthat hadalready beendone
by the courts. Regardless, he was
not in the position to determine
the reasonableness of the charg-
es.
“When the bills come over, I
don’t know what an attorney is
doing in court. My position is to
make sure there is a payment au-
thorizationandcourt order,”Grif-
fith said. “If there is an affidavit
from two people, one who is a
judge and one who is an attorney
who did the work, who am I to
question it?”
Floraalsosaidhedidnotreview
the invoices because the money
to pay the attorneys, while it was
heldinhisaccount, wasnothisde-
partment’s money. Hewas simply
the conduit through which the
funds, whichcamefromthecoun-
ty’s general fund, were disbursed.
“All they were doing was uti-
lizing a line item in my budget
simplyas apass throughsothein-
voices couldget paid,” Flora said.
“The court reviews the invoices
for the purpose of determining
the reasonableness of the bill.”
Safeguards not utilized
Pribula and Griffith said they
were also upset because they be-
lieved Burke and Polachek Gar-
tley were trying to deflect criti-
cismby pinning blame on county
officials for failing to follow sug-
gestionsthecourt madewhenset-
ting up the fund.
In the interviewTuesday, Pola-
chek Gartley said she suggested
to the county the attorneys hired
bepaidaset salary, but thecounty
optedtogowithanhourlyrate in-
stead.
There also was no contract es-
tablished that set the parameters
for what were permissible and
non-permissible charges, and no
cap was placed on the amount an
attorney could charge.
Burke made note of Polachek
Gartley’s recommendations in a
memo he sent to Pribula on
Wednesday seeking the forensic
audit. Burke suggested the coun-
ty revisit the court’s recommen-
dation that the county engage
lawyers on a fixed contract.
“Judge Gartley has argued
strenuously in the past that this
approach would optimize meet-
ingthegoal of cost containment,”
Burke said.
Pribula said Thursday he was
“livid” when he received the me-
mo because that statement insin-
uates county management offi-
cials were somehow responsible
for the issues with the fund.
“Theyaretryingtopushit back
on the county. Why the hell did
they let it get out of control like
this?” Pribula said. “Theywant to
be autonomous, but when some-
thing blows, they want to blame
someone else.”
Told of Pribula’s comments,
Burke said his intent was not to
cast blame oncounty officials. He
acknowledged there were issues
with the court’s oversight of the
fund.
“There was a protocol in place.
The court relied primarily on the
attorney verification attached to
the fee petitions. Inhindsight, it’s
realized perhaps there could be a
systemwith better controls to re-
viewsubmissions,” Burke said.
Burke said he believes issues
with oversight arose partly due
the tremendous workload the
court, which was down three
judges, carried in 2011.
He noted that in addition to
handling family court matters,
PolachekGartleywasalsoheavily
involved in criminal court cases,
includingseveral homicide trials.
“Youhadanextraordinarily bu-
sy judge playing an administra-
tiveroleinthis area, coupledwith
a docket that was relentless in
both family court and criminal
court area,” Burke said. “Over the
past twoyears, nojudgeinthehis-
tory of this county has ever
worked harder or taken on more
responsibility.”
Regardless of who was at fault,
Burke said the key issue nowis to
audit the fund to determine if im-
proper payments were made and
toaddresschangesthatneedtobe
made.
“It’s evident that better con-
trols should be in place regarding
this process,” he said.

NEW YORK — National
League MVP Ryan Braun’s 50-
game suspension was overturn-
ed Thursday by baseball arbitra-
tor Shyam Das, the first time a
baseball player successfully
challenged a drug-related penal-
ty in a grievance.
The decision was announced
Thursday by the Major League
Baseball Players Association,
one day before the 28-year-old
outfielder was due to report to
spring training
with the Mil-
waukee Brew-
ers.
Braun’s uri-
ne tested posi-
tive in October
for elevated
testosterone,
and ESPN revealed the positive
test in December.
Braun has insisted that he did
not violate baseball’s drug
agreement.
“I am very pleased and re-
lieved by today’s decision,” he
said in a statement. “It is the
first step in restoring my good
name and reputation. We were
able to get through this because
I aminnocent and the truth is on
our side.”
MLB executive vice president
Rob Manfred said management
“vehemently disagrees” with
Das’ decision.
Das, who has been baseball’s
independent arbitrator since
2000, informed the sides of his
decision, but didnot give thema
written opinion. He has 30 days
to do so.
“Today the arbitration panel
announced its decision, by a 2-1
vote, to sustain Ryan Braun’s
grievance challenging his 50-
game suspension by the com-
missioner’s office,” a statement
from the players’ association
said.
Manfred and union head Mi-
chael Weiner are part of the ar-
bitration panel, and manage-
ment and the union almost al-
ways split their votes, leaving
Das, the independent panel
member, to make the decision.
“MLB and cable sports tried
to sully the reputation of an in-
nocent man,” Green Bay Pack-
ers quarterback Aaron Rodgers
said on Twitter. “Picked the
wrong guy to mess with. Truth
will set u free”
Brewers closer John Axford
added on Twitter: “All I can say
is that Braun has exemplary
character is continuing to han-

Dallas is trying to turn back
the clock to the 1970s once
again.
Last year, the Mountaineers
claimed their first district team
championship since 1974. That
title followed one in ’73.
With five returning regional
qualifiers – including three
district seconds from last year–
and seven wrestlers with at least
20 wins entered into today’s
District 2 Class 2A Tournament
at Lake-
Lehman, the
Mountain-
eers could be
positioned
for another
champion-
ship run.
Repeating
won’t be an
easy task
though.
Western
Wayne
claimed the
Class 2A
Duals cham-
pionship
earlier this
month with a criteria win over
Lake-Lehman. The Wildcats
defeated Dallas 36-28 in that
tournament, but during the
regular season Lehman only
beat Dallas by one point.
FOUR TO GO
Meyers standout Vito Pasone,
who is a two-time state qualifier
taking seventh last year, is
shooting for his fourth consec-
utive District 2 championship.
With three more wins, he will
accomplish the feat and become
just the 23rd wrestler in D2
history to do so. He is the Mo-
hawks’ all-time wins leader with
136 and is in the 113-pound
bracket. The previous two sea-
sons he participated at 112,
while his freshman year he was
at 103.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. —
Roush Fenway Racing will
have three cars at the front of
the season-opening Daytona
500.
Matt Kenseth won the sec-
ond of the twin 150-mile qual-
ifying races Thursday with a
bold pass of teammate Greg
Biffle. The victory gave Ken-
seth a spot on the second row
for Sunday’s race — right be-
hind teammates Carl Ed-
wards and Biffle.
Tony Stewart, the defend-
ing NASCAR champion, won
the first race and will line up
next to Kenseth at Daytona
International Speedway.
Biffle was leading headed
into the final lap, but he tried
to block Kenseth, who dove
to the inside and used a push
from Jimmie Johnson to take
the lead.
“Well, we were going so
much faster that we were go-
ing to go by him regardless,”
Kenseth said. “I think that
was his only hope, is to try to
get up the track, try to line
my front bumper up where I
had to push him. The prob-
lem was, I was going too fast.
Even if I wanted to slow
down, which I didn’t want to
on the last lap, I couldn’t
have.”

The Wilkes men needed to hit
tripledigits inovertime. BothMi-
sericordia teams trailed in the
secondhalf before takingcontrol.
The King’s women were just two
seconds away from elimination.
And all of them won.
They did it the hard way, but
four local college basketball
teams that made it tothe postsea-
son have advanced to set up a
one-of-a-kind championship Sat-
urday of basketball.
It begins at 1 p.m. in Wilkes-
Barre when King’s hosts Miser-
icordia at Scandlon Gymnasium
for the Freedom Conference
women’s title. After that, it’s a
short trip up Route 309 to Dallas
for the Freedom Conference
men’s final between Misericordia
andWilkes at 4 p.m. at the Ander-
son Center.
The winner of each game will
earn a spot in the NCAA tourna-
ment, which opens next week – a
64-team field for the women and
62 teams for the men.
Both contests will serve as a
rubber match. The Wilkes and
Misericordia men split their reg-
ular-season series, as did the
King’s and Misericordia women.
The home team won all four
games.
The King’s women are the

WILKES-BARRE TWP. –
Scott Munroe raised his hands
in relief as the puck rang off the
crossbar inthe final roundof the
shootout.
Prior to that, Munroe had
been through a nightmare of a
game as the Wilkes-Barre/
Scranton Penguins edged out a
7-6 shootout win over the Man-
chester Monarchs on Thursday.
“I’m going to take these two
points, put them under my pil-
low, go to sleep and try to forget
about it,” Munroe said. “Proba-
bly the greasiest, weirdest win
of my career.”
The shootout win improves
the Penguins to 32-16-2-5 and
moves themtwopoints aheadof
idle Norfolk for first place in the
East Division and one point be-
hind St. John’s for the confer-
ence lead.
It was valuable, but not pretty.
Despite outshooting Man-
chester 15-5 in the first period,
the Penguins wound up down
by two goals thanks to a rare
turnover fromBrian Strait and a
defensive breakdown in front of
the net.
But the Penguins tightened
things up in the second period
with four goals in a 10-minute
span.
Brandon DeFazio scored at
the five minute mark to make it
2-1, and the floodgates opened
as Brian Gibbons, Jason Wil-
liams and Cody Chupp all con-
nected to make it 4-2 Penguins

CLASS 4A
Outlook: Scranton (18-4) overcame a season-ending injury
to Karlon Quiller and an illness to superstar Terry Turner to
gain the first seed. The Knights have been favored to win the
tournament since the season tipped off.
Hazleton Area (19-4) had its 12-game winning streak snapped
by fifth-seeded Wyoming Valley West (11-12) on Feb. 17. The Cou-
gars wasted a 10-point fourth-quarter lead in that game but
recovered to defeat Crestwood for the WVC Division I title.
That Valley West rally epitomized the team’s season, as the
Spartans have been up and down for the most part.
Fourth-seeded Williamsport (14-8) has lost four games by
four points or less, including a pair of one-point setbacks.
Three losses by third-seeded Delaware Valley (17-5) have come
at the hands of Scranton. Two were by 20 or more points, the
other by three.
Sixth-seeded Wallenpaupack (8-14) won seven of its first 10
games, but it’s been downhill since then. The Buckhorns’ first-
round opponent, DelVal, defeated them by 36 two weeks ago.
Dark Horse: Williamsport only because of its fourth seed.
The Millionaires are probably the second or third best team in
the tournament.
Upset Special: Delaware Valley over Hazleton Area. DelVal
has close wins recently against Abington Heights and Scran-
ton Prep. If the Warriors can keep it close, which could be a
tough task, they shouldn’t be rattled at the end.
Best Opening Game: Valley West vs. Williamsport. William-
sport defeated Valley West 65-49 on Jan. 25, but considering
the way the Spartans came back to defeat Hazleton Area after
previously being blown out twice, they could make this game
interesting.
Prediction: Scranton to defeat Hazleton Area for the title,
with both moving to the state tournament.
CLASS 3A
Outlook: Abington Heights (19-5) and Scranton Prep (16-6)
looked like the favorites early in the season. The gap has
closed, however, to the point where it’s anybody’s tournament.
Even North Pocono (11-13), which has a victory over a very good
but hurting at the time Scranton team.
Crestwood (13-10) has defeated the other four WVC reps –
Dallas (14-8), Tunkhannock (14-9) and Holy Redeemer (10-12)
once and Pittston Area (13-9) twice. The Comets are playing
the best of the WVC bunch at this time, winning nine of their
last 11.
Dark Horse: Pittston Area. Only two of the Patriots’ 13 victo-
ries have come against teams with a winning record. But they
have two one-point losses and two two-point losses against
strong opponents.
Upset Special: Redeemer over Prep. The Royals have been
and up-and-down team as expected with all new faces in the
lineup. But if they put it all together, they can knock off Lacka-
wanna’s top seed.
Best Opening Game: Crestwood vs. Pittston Area. Pittston
Area’s Steve Stravinski, the WVC Division I scoring champ, had
his two worst league games against Crestwood in 52-50 and
49-37 losses. If he can break out, this game could go down to
the wire.
Prediction: Abington to defeat Prep for the title. Crestwood
to defeat Dallas for third place and the final state berth.
CLASS 2A
Outlook: Of the three WVC teams involved in the eight-team
tournament, WVC second seed GAR (20-2) drew the toughest
assignment in Lackawanna No. 3 Riverside (20-3). All of the
defending champion Vikings’ losses have come against Holy
Cross, the Lackawanna’s top seed. GAR hasn’t made it past the
round of eight in two of the past three seasons.
WVC No. 1 Meyers (20-2), which handed GAR its only losses,
also has a tough task with Lackawanna No. 4 Dunmore (19-7).
Dunmore has allowed 60 or more points only three times this
season. WVC No. 3 Hanover Area (10-11) has struggled against
better competition and its opponent, Lackawanna No. 2 Lake-
land (17-8), has won 11 of its last 13.
Lackawanna No. 1 Holy Cross (20-4) had its three-season
reign end last year. The Crusaders have won eight in a row,
including victories over Dunmore, Lakeland and Riverside.
Their opponent, Lackawanna No. 5 Montrose (18-8), has lost
three of its last four.
Dark Horse: Dunmore because it has a defense that could
slow down up-tempo opponents.
Upset Special: Dunmore over Meyers, if the Bucks can slow
down the Mohawks.
Best Opening Game: GAR vs. Riverside. The loser deserves
a better fate.
Prediction: Holy Cross to defeat Meyers for the title. GAR to
top Lakeland for third place and the final state spot.
CLASS A
Outlook: The field is among the weakest in recent seasons,
with no team close to the .500 level.
Five-time defending champion Old Forge (7-14) lost a coin
flip with Susquehanna (6-15) for the No. 1 seed. The Blue Devils
open with No. 3 seed Forest City (2-20). Susquehanna gets No.
4 seed MMI Prep (4-18).
The Blue Devils appear to be the favorite once again. They
have a four-game losing streak, but three of the losses have
been by three points or less. Plus, they’ve played two quality
teams – Dunmore and Riverside – tough in the second-half
season.
MMI Prep, the WVC’s only team in the bracket, could guaran-
tee itself a place in the state tournament with a win against
Susquehanna. No sites or times have been set for the semi-
finals, which will be played Tuesday.
Dark Horse: MMI has played well in some of its losses and
looks like the only team that can knock off either top seed.
Upset Special: Really, nothing appears to be an upset un-
less someone knocks off Old Forge.
Best Opening Game: Susquehanna vs. MMI Prep.
Prediction: Old Forge to defeat Susquehanna for the title,
with both teams moving to states.

dle this in an unbelievable man-
ner.”
An evidentiary hearing on
Braun’s appeal was held Jan. 19-
20 in New York, ending the day
before the player accepted the
NL MVP award at a black-tie din-
ner.
“We provided complete coop-
eration throughout, despite the
highly unusual circumstances. I
have been an open book, willing
to share details from every as-
pect of my life as part of this in-
vestigation, because I have noth-
ing to hide,” Braun said in his
statement. “I have passed over
25 drug tests in my career, in-
cluding at least three in the past
year.”
A person familiar with the sit-
uation told The Associated Press
that, after being informed of the
positive result, Braun asked to
have another urine test taken,
and that the second test was
within normal range.
During the hearing, Braun’s
side challenged the chain of cus-
tody from the time the urine
sample was collected by Com-
prehensive Drug Testing Inc. to
when it was sent nearly 48 hours
later to a World Anti-Doping
Agency-certified laboratory in
Montreal, the person said. The
person spoke on condition of
anonymity because what took
place in the hearing is supposed
to be confidential.
Baseball’s drug agreement
states that “absent unusual cir-
cumstances, the specimens
should be sent by FedEx to the
laboratory on the same day they
are collected.”
Positive tests for performance-
enhancing drugs have been rela-
tively rare under the major
league testing program, with just
two others in 2011: Tampa Bay
outfielder Manny Ramirez and
Colorado Rockies catcher Eliez-
er Alfonzo. Ramirez at first re-
tired rather than face a 100-game
suspension for a second positive
test. Wanting to return this year,
he is serving a 50-game penalty
— the length was shortened be-
cause he missedmost of last year.
“It has always been Major
League Baseball’s position that
no matter who tests positive, we
will exhaust all avenues in pur-
suit of the appropriate discipline.
We have been true to that posi-
tion in every instance, because
baseball fans deserve nothing
less,” Manfred said. “As a part of
our drug testing program, the
commissioner’s office and the
players’ association agreed to a
neutral third party review for in-
stances that are under dispute.
While we have always respected
that process, Major League Base-
ball vehemently disagrees with
the decision rendered today by
arbitrator Shyam Das.”
Braun hit .312 with 33 homers
and 111 RBIs last year and led
Milwaukee to the NL champion-
ship series, where the Brewers
lost to the eventual World Series
champion St. Louis Cardinals.
The Brewers are counting on his
offense following the departure
of Prince Fielder, who became a
free agent and signed with the
Detroit Tigers.
Braun already was signed
through 2015, but the Brewers
gave him a new deal running
through 2020 that added $105
million and guaranteed him a to-
tal of $145.5 million over a dec-
ade.

Duringhis first twoDistrict 2-4
Class 3A diving championships,
Wyoming Valley West junior Col-
lin Vest was chiefly concerned
with making it to states.
Two district crowns in the bag,
Vest’s degree of difficulty nearly
assures himself a trip to the PIAA
swimming and diving champion-
ships in Lewisburg.
But Spartans diving coach Rob
Jacobs cautions that Vest won’t
be easing up anytime soon.
“Collin is doing more difficult
dives at districts in preparation
for PIAAs,” Jacobs said. “He isn’t
coming in thinking that he has it
made. He knows that on the div-
ing board, when you take that
hurdle, you don’t know where
you’re going to land.”
Vest seeks to break Mike
McGinley’s 30-plus year diving
record at districts at the Wyom-
ing Valley Catholic Youth Center
in Wilkes-Barre. The 11-round
District 2 Class 2A boys and girls
championships beginSaturday at
10 a.m. followed by the Class 3A
championships at 3 p.m.
Oddly enough, the focus at Sat-
urday’s district meet will be on
Vest’s teammate Ibrahim Ismail.
Since only seven schools com-
pete at the Class 3A level, only
one automatic qualifier is award-
ed to District 2. Ismail must post
a higher score than all non-qual-
ifying divers in the state for one
at-large slot.
“What he has been doing is up-
ping his degree of difficulty,” Ja-
cobs said. “He’s working on
cleaner entries and staying re-
laxed.”
Vest continued his torrent, re-
cord-breaking diving career this
season and hovered around the
350 mark towards the end of the
season. Ismail joined what Ja-
cobs called “a handful of divers in
the state” when he eclipsed a 300
score with a 302.7 in the Spar-
tans’ final meet against Hazleton
Area.
Boasting a season-high 254
mark, Dallas’ Sarah Zerfoss also
looks to defend her title as a re-
turning two-time Class 2A dis-
trict winner. Zerfoss limped her
way to a district crown a year ago
withher foot ina cast. The Moun-
taineer senior broke her toe in
early February 2011and was side-
lined for three weeks prior to the
meet.
“She has some newdives,” Dal-
las diving coach Matt Nonnen-
berg said. “She could break over
400. It just depends on what kind
of dives she makes. She’s been
working hard in practice.”
Zerfoss’ top competition –
Lake-Lehman’s Brinley Williams
– is unavailable to dive Saturday
due to a stress fracture. Holy Re-
deemer’s Olivia Vitali scored a
win over Dallas earlier this
month and looks to be a potential
threat. Hanover Area boasts Ash-
lynn Heller, who qualified for
states a year ago with a second-
place showing.
Wyoming Valley West’s Karina
Zabresky and Delaware Valley’s
Kristiana Brush look to be the fa-
vorites at the girls Class 3Alevel.
Zabresky narrowly defeated
Brush, last year’s district runner-
up, at the Ray Willis Invitational
on Jan. 23.
“The two of them should be
neck and neck,” Jacobs said.
“The Delaware Valley girl is a
great diver, and it should proba-
bly play out to the final dive.”
The District 2 Class 2A boys
championships should be high-
lighted by a set of new faces.
Lake-Lehman freshman Matt Ed-
kins posted one of the highest
scores in the Wyoming Valley
Conference with a 264 and ap-
pears to be one of the favorites in
a wide-open field.
“He’s a little nervous but he’s a
hard worker,” said Erin Yurko, a
first-year diving coach at Lake-
Lehman. “He listens to what I
have to tell him so he’s a joy to
work with. I don’t think he under-
stands how well he is capable of
doing on Saturday.”
Edkins’ top competition will
be Dallas sophomore Patrick Ma-
daya, who has a season-high 236
score. Madaya missedmost of his
freshman season after breaking
his toes on a dive in his second
meet.
“Patrick’s entries are perfect,”
Nonnenberg said. “Come district
time, he might sneak in there.”
Holy Redeemer’s Mike Pahler
will alsobe one of the favorites on
the boys’ side.

“We had a little more urgency
in our game,” said head coach
John Hynes. “We didn’t take our
offensive chances for grantedand
made them count.”
The offensive explosion con-
tinued into the third period, and
the Penguins needed it after
Manchester’s Linden Vey scored
at 4:05 to close within one.
But the Penguins responded
quickly when Bryan Lerg blewby
a defender at the blueline, gloved
down a loose puck and raced into
the right faceoff circle. Lerg
quickly passed behind a Man-
chester defenseman in the slot to
Williams, who was wide open for
the one-timer to make it 5-3.
Sixteen seconds later Zach Sill
picked off a clearing pass from
Manchester goaltender Jeff Zat-
koff in the middle and sent a slap-
shot into the net to make it 6-3.
But it was far from over.
“I wasn’t feeling good at all
about the lead,” Hynes said. “I
thought we were good, but we
were sleepy at times.”
With less than half the period
remaining, Manchester’s Robert
Czarnick scored on a breakaway
to make it 6-4. Six minutes later,
Veyscoredhis secondgoal for the
Monarchs with a shot from the
point to make it 6-5.
Munroe could sense the mo-
mentumhad changed as the Pen-
guins still clung to a one-goal
lead with four minutes left.
“I kept looking at the clock
thinking ‘why is this taking so
long,’” he said. “It was a bit of a
grind because I felt like I was do-
ing the right things, but it just
wasn’t going my way.”
Then, with 48 seconds left,
Manchester’s Trent Hunter
scored to tie things up, 6-6, and
force overtime and eventually a
shootout.
“You don’t expect to be in a
game where you score six goals
and end up in a shootout,” Mun-
roe said.
Vey connected for Manchester
in the first round of the shootout,
and Geoff Walker and Lerg
scored in the following two
rounds to give the Penguins the
advantage.
In the fifth and final round, it
was upto Munroe to earnthe win
and the extra point for the Pen-
guins as he faced Manchester’s
Brandon Kozun.

YATESVILLE – Wyoming Val-
ley West moved one step closer
to a state tournament berth, and
got a little work in as well.
The Spartans led throughout
– and maintained a double-digit
lead for the final 24:04 – in a 65-
30triumphover DelawareValley
in a District 2 Class 4A girls bas-
ketball quarterfinal game at Pitt-
ston Area on Thursday.
The victory sends Valley West
(19-5) intothe semifinals against
the winner of the quarterfinal
between Wallenpaupack (14-8)
and Scranton (5-17) tonight.
“It was our normal routine,”
Valley West coach Curt Lloyd
said of playing on Thursday, a
day ahead of the rest of the dis-
trict. “But after coming off such
ahighonMonday(theWyoming
Valley Conference Division I
championship game), it was a
bit tough to focus. This was a
first for me, having such a quick
turnaround.”
Tara Zdancewicz had a game-
high 25 points, 10 rebounds and
five assists. She was one under
her seasonaverage of 17.0 points
at halftime. Her 25 points was
her third-best outing of the sea-
son, trailing just a 28-point night
against Abington Heights on
Jan. 23 and a 26-point game at
Crestwood on Feb. 6.
Both of those games were also
Valley West wins, with the
Abington Heights victory kick-
ing off the Spartans’ current 10-
game win streak.
The Spartans mixed up de-
fenses throughout the night and
heldDelaware Valley (4-19) to21
percent shooting fromthe field–
including just 15 percent in the
second half, which saw the bulk
of Valley West’s 38-7 run. Center
Olivia Hoffman spent some time
at the top of the Spartans’ 1-3-1.
“We did that with Olivia at
Crestwood in the second half,
and just a trip or two Monday,”
Lloyd said. “She has such a long
wingspan that she creates a mis-
match with the long passes.
She’s unique that she’s a bigplay-
er who can move at the top.”
Valley West appeared to run a
number of offensive sets as well,
gettingina makeshift practice as
the game wore on. Eight Spar-
tans hadbaskets inthe game and
seven posted assists.
“Other than our three starting
seniors, we’re so young,” Lloyd
said of getting all of his players
into the game. “We don’t have
any juniors, so we are predomin-
antly sophomores and fresh-
men. It’s great toget thema little
time in a playoff game.”
Kate Smicherko had nine
points, seven rebounds and five
assists for the Spartans, who
shot 53 percent from the field
and enjoyed a 24-8 advantage in
turnovers through three quar-
ters. Taylor Reillymatcheda sea-
son high with eight points. Cas-
sie Smicherko added seven
points, and Olivia Hoffman had
four blocks and six points.
Senior Megan Braunagel, a 6-
foot-1center, was the lone bright
spot for the Warriors. She had
eight of her 11 points in the first
half and finished with nine re-
bounds.
“We are always working on
getting Megan the ball in prac-
tice,” Delaware Valley coach Gi-
na Lee said. “Her effort was out-
standing.”
Delaware Valley finished with
losses in 14 of its final 15 games.

An Eynon Buick GMC Dealership
DETROIT — Daniel Sedin
scored his second goal of the
game with 15.4 seconds left
in regulation and Alex Bur-
rows had the only score in a
shootout, lifting the Van-
couver Canucks to a 4-3 vic-
tory that snapped the De-
troit Red Wings’ NHL-record
23-game home winning
streak.
Detroit hadn’t lost at Joe
Louis Arena since Nov. 3
against Calgary.
The NHL-leading Red
Wings hold a one-point lead
over Vancouver in the West-
ern Conference. The Ca-
nucks have won an NHL-high
21 games on the road this
season.
A sold-out crowd stood
during the shootout, which
started with Roberto Luongo
stopping Jiri Hudler’s shot
and Jimmy Howard going
low to smother David
Booth’s attempt.
Henrik Zetterberg missed
the net on Detroit’s second
attempt and Alexander Edler
was denied.
Todd Bertuzzi, who signed
a two-year extension with
the Red Wings, couldn’t put
his team ahead and Burrows
took advantage with a back-
hand.
Detroit was 16 seconds
away from getting the win in
regulation, but the Canucks
pulled Luongo to have an
extra skater in the Red
Wings end for a faceoff.
Sedin took a slap shot
from the slot that Howard
never saw after his team-
mates failed to clear the
puck when it was behind the
net.
Justin Abdelkader scored
with 6:14 left in the third
period to give Detroit a 3-2
lead — 20 seconds after
Vancouver’s Cody Hodgson
tied the game.
Newly acquired defense-
man Kyle Quincey scored to
put Detroit ahead 6:05 into
the third period and Darren
Helm had a goal 11:16 into
the game to give the Red
Wings a 1-0 lead.
Sedin tied it at 1 at 13:34
of the second and Hodgson
tied it again, getting credit
for a goal that went in off
the right skate of Detroit
defenseman Niklas Kronwall.
Quincey, in the first game
of his second stint with the
Red Wings, couldn’t hide his
smile on the bench after
putting them ahead 2-1.
The Red Wings, who draft-
ed Quincey in 2003, acquired
him for a first-round pick
and prospect Sebastien Piche
from Tampa Bay on Tuesday
in a three-team trade with
Colorado.
Luongo made 33 saves and
Howard had 40 stops.
Detroit led 1-0 after the
first period despite being
outplayed.
Vancouver outshot the Red
Wings 17-5 in the first, but
defenseman Kevin Bieksa
had the puck poked away by
Helm and his fluttering wrist
shot got past Luongo at
11:16.
Detroit didn’t do much
with three power plays in the
first, going scoreless and
getting only one shot com-
bined with an extra skater.
The Red Wings looked out
of sync, missing playmaking
center Pavel Datsyuk for a
second game. Datsyuk, the
team’s leading scorer, is ex-
pected to be out for two
weeks after right knee sur-
gery Tuesday.
Sedin tied the game at 1 at
13:34 of the second. He slid
the puck around Howard and
into the net while engaged
with defenseman Ian White.
The Red Wings were fortu-
nate the game was tied after
Quincey was called for two
penalties in the first half of
the second period and Drew
Miller put Vancouver on
another power play, holding
the Canucks scoreless each
time they had an extra skat-
er in the period.
Detroit outshot the Ca-
nucks 15-8 in the second
period, but had nothing to
show for it.
The Red Wings created
more chances in the third
period, especially when Ab-
delkader swiped at a puck in
the crease that Luongo
didn’t cover.
Ducks 3, Hurricanes 2
RALEIGH, N.C. — Saku
Koivu scored the only goal in
the shootout to lift Anaheim
over Carolina.
Corey Perry, who reached
30 goals for the third time in
his career, and Luca Sbisa
scored in regulation for Ana-
heim. Jerome Samson and
Jamie McBain had goals for
Carolina.
Jonas Hiller had 30 saves
for the Ducks, who went
5-1-2 on their eight-game,
15-day road trip. Anaheim
improved to 2-22-2 when
trailing after two periods.
Carolina’s Justin Peters,
starting his second straight
and playing in his fourth
consecutive game because
Cam Ward is injured, made
35 saves.
The Hurricanes’ Jiri Tlusty
assisted on Samson’s goal to
extend his point streak to
nine games, two short of the
longest run since the club
moved to North Carolina
from Hartford in 1997.
Wild 3, Panthers 2
SUNRISE, Fla. — Matt
Cullen and Erik Christensen
scored in the shootout in
Minnesota’s victory against
Florida.
Cullen and Kyle Brodziak
scored in regulation, Dany
Heatley had two assists, and
Niklas Backstrom stopped 41
shots for the Wild.
Christensen scored the
first goal in the shootout,
followed by Cullen. Back-
strom stopped Kris Versteeg
and Sean Bergenheim to seal
the win. Cullen is 7-for-13 in
shootout attempts this sea-
son.
The Wild won for just the
second time in nine games.
Bergenheim and Mikael
Samuelsson scored for the
Panthers, who got 26 saves
from Jose Theodore. Florida
has lost four straight.
Sharks 2, Maple Leafs 1
TORONTO — Patrick
Marleau scored two goals,
and San Jose sent stumbling
Toronto to its seventh loss in
eight games.
James Reimer started in
goal against the Sharks and
made 24 saves, but his re-
cord dropped to 11-9-4. Mar-
leau was the only player to
beat him with a pair of sec-
ond-period goals that lifted
the Sharks (32-20-7) to their
first win in five games. Antti
Niemi made 29 saves.
Jake Gardiner scored for
the Maple Leafs (29-25-7),
who are 1-6-1 since Feb. 7.
Blues 3, Predators 2
NASHVILLE, Tenn. —
Shootout goals by T.J. Oshie
and Andy McDonald pushed
St. Louis past Nashville.
Chris Stewart and Vladi-
mir Sobotka scored for St.
Louis in regulation. Roman
Josi and Colin Wilson had
goals for Nashville.
Jaroslav Halak made 25
saves for the Blues, then was
perfect in the shootout, stop-
ping Wilson and Martin Erat.
Pekka Rinne stopped 22
shots for the Predators.
Stewart got the only goal
of the opening period, then
Josi and Wilson gave Nash-
ville a 2-1 lead. Just 34 sec-
onds after Wilson’s goal,
Sobotka tied it.
Stars 3, Blackhawks 1
CHICAGO — Michael Ryd-
er scored on a deflection
with 5:02 left in regulation
as the Dallas Stars rallied
with three goals late in the
game to defeat Chicago,
ending the Blackhawks’ four-
game winning streak.
Tied at 1, Ryder got behind
Chicago’s defense and redi-
rected Mike Ribeiro’s shot
between Corey Crawford’s
left pad and the near goal
post.
Dallas’ Loui Eriksson was
credited with a goal 74 sec-
onds later that made it 3-1.
He scored after Ryder’s shot
deflected off Chicago defen-
seman Brent Seabrook’s
skate.
Dallas’s Steve Ott scored
on a deflection midway
through the third to tie it at
1.
Stars backup Richard Bach-
man made 26 stops in his
first start since Feb. 2, a
stretch of 11 games.
Marian Hossa scored Chi-
cago’s lone goal and Corey
Crawford finished with 22
saves.

MIAMI — Jeremy Lin was
no match for the Miami Heat.
Forcing Lin into easily the
worst game of his remarkable
run as New York’s starting
point guard by running

PHILLIES
Utley hopes to stay healthy
CLEARWATER, Fla. — Chase Ut-
ley’s batting average and slugging per-
centage have dropped each season
since 2007. He’s played in fewer games
the last two years and spent more time
on the disabled list.
Is the five-time All-Star on the de-
cline?
“I’m always looking for ways to im-
prove. I haven’t come to the conclusion
that I need to change things,” Utley
said after the Philadelphia Phillies
practiced on Thursday. “I think what
I’m doing now is putting me on track
to contribute like I have in the past.”
The biggest question surrounding
Utley is his health. The second base-
man missed the first 46 games last
season because of a right knee injury.
Though he returned in late May, Utley
clearly wasn’t himself. He batted just
.259 with 11 homers and 44 RBIs in 103
games.
MARINERS
Montero looking to develop
PEORIA, Ariz. — At first glance, it’s
easy to see the potential in Jesus Mon-
tero.
The Seattle Mariners’ prized acquisi-
tion in an offseason trade with the New
York Yankees is an imposing presence.
He’s a catcher and designated hitter
listed at 6-foot-3, 235 pounds, and the
ball jumps off his bat with a crack audi-
ble across the Mariners’ spring training
facility.
The 22-year-old Montero went 20 for
61 in 18 games with the Yankees after a
September call-up last season. He hit
four home runs. When the Mariners
went in search of offense combined
with youth and promise, Montero was
their target.
The team hopes to develop him as a
catcher, with veteran Miguel Olivo
providing some power and handling
the pitching staff while Montero works
on his defense and game-calling.
METS
Beltran will pay up
JUPITER, Fla. — Carlos Beltran
plans on paying New York Mets lefty
and former teammate Jonathan Niese
in person for a $10,000 nose job.
Beltran, now with the St. Louis Car-
dinals, said Thursday that he’ll have a
check for Niese when his new team
plays the Mets in spring training. The
clubs are about a 40-minute interstate
drive apart in Florida.
“I did get the bill, yeah,” Beltran
said. “I want to go there and give it to
him personally.”
Beltran maintained he didn’t recom-
mend surgery last summer, but he did
offer to foot the bill after Niese said the
procedure wasn’t a priority.
“He came to me the day after the
conversation and he said ‘Are you sure
you’re going to pay for it?”’ Beltran
said. “I said, ‘Well, I’ll pay for it if
you’re going to do it.’ I guess he was
happy that he didn’t have to pay
$10,000 for his nose.”
GIANTS
Lincecum says he’s healthy
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — San Francis-
co right-hander Tim Lincecum went all
out during his bullpen session Thurs-
day and reported that he felt just fine.
The two-time NL Cy Young Award
winner said he took a precautionary
route after feeling some tightness in
his back earlier in the week.
Giants closer Brian Wilson also aired
it out during his bullpen session.

TAMPA, Fla. —Eric Chavez spent the
offseason wondering where — and if —
he might play again.
There was only one place he really had
in mind.
Chavez was back with the New York
Yankees on Thursday after agreeing to a
$900,000, one-year deal. The 34-year-old
Chavez said retirement was a possibility,
but he was happy to return to the Yan-
kees after playing 58 games with them
last season.
“If there was no interest at all, in my
mind I was probably going to shut it
down,” Chavezsaid. “I wouldn’t say‘here
or nowhere’ — but this was obviously
coming back to a place
I was familiar with. ... I
knewthis was going to
be a good team, obvi-
ously a team that was
going to have an op-
portunity to go back to
the playoffs.”
Once a centerpiece
in Oakland, Chavez was already consid-
ering retirement after the 2010 season,
his 13th with the Athletics. He ended up
signing a minor league deal with New
York and was able to work his way into a
part-time role for the Yankees.
Chavez hit .263 with two homers and
26 RBIs last year, starting 33 games at
third base and also playing a bit at first.
“He adds depth to our club, and if you
giveAlex(Rodriguez)adayoff, thisguy’s
a player,” manager Joe Girardi said. “You
knowhe’s going to catch it. He’s got very
good hands.”
Chavez is a six-time Gold Glove win-
ner, but he broke a bone inhis left foot on
May 5 after just 17 games and didn’t re-
turn until July 26.
That was part of a disturbing pattern
for Chavez, who has played only 122
games over the last four seasons. He’s al-
so had shoulder and back problems.
“I actually felt that when he got hurt
we missed him,” Girardi said. “He was
playing really well for us. He plays an ex-
cellent third base, swings the bat. The
big thing about Chavvy is keeping him
healthy. Last year was kind of a freaky
thing that he had. We hope that he’s be-
yond the freaky things, but you don’t
know.”
Chavez played in the postseason five
times withOakland. Hedidn’t playmuch
for the Yankees in last year’s Division Se-
ries loss to Detroit, striking out in a
Game 2 loss in his only at-bat of the se-
ries.
NewYork’s status as a perennial World
Series contender made it an attractive
franchise for Chavez.
“It’s the winning, it’s the way everybo-
dy goes about their business here — it’s
very professional — and it became too
appealing for me not to come back
again,” he said. “It took a long time, but
I’m happy the way things worked out.
The teamlooks fantastic. It looks like it’s
ingoodpositiontowina lot of ballgames
again.”
Chavez said he found out in recent
weeks that it might be realistic to come
back to the Yankees.
“There were a fewother teams. I don’t
know how serious it was. I don’t even
know how serious it was an interest on
my part,” Chavez said. “This was the
spot that — if I was going to come back
—I wanted it to be.”

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Ja-
son Bay signed with the New
York Mets following an All-Star
2009 season in Boston that was
also one of the best of his ca-
reer.
Two years and a $66 million
investment
later, Mets
management
is still waiting
to see if he’ll
ever display
that kind of
talent in
Queens.
After post-
ing 20 or more home runs in
six of his first seven major
league seasons — including
four with 30-plus — concus-
sion, rib and shoulder issues
culminated in Bay hitting just
18 total homers the past two
years for the Mets.
But after a summer of virtual
training isolation spent hitting
off a “tee-like contraption” and
concentrating on the basics,
Bay said Thursday he’s hopeful
people will get to see the player
he knows he can be.
“I’m trying to approach (the
season) like any other one,” he
said. “The first year I came in, I
was kind of the new guy and
then last year, coming off the
concussion, I’m just trying to
get back to it, and I did it this
offseason. Not really trying to
work on anything new. But just
trying to do what I’ve always
done. That’s the way I’m gonna
approach it, regardless of
what’s happened in the past.”
There’s no question that a lot
could be riding on Bay making
a significant improvement with
the Mets doing very little in the
way personnel tweaking this
offseason.
The Mets have about half of
their payroll this year promised
to Bay, pitcher Johan Santana
and third baseman David
Wright. So another year of sub-
par production could bring
about wholesale change.
Those aren’t sentiments lost
on Bay.
“I think everybody knows we
have some work to do — no
question,” Bay said. “I don’t
think anybody (in the club-
house) thinks any differently. ...
Are we the No. 1 favorite for the
division? Probably not. But I
don’t think it’s out of the realm
of truth that we can be pretty
good.”
Aside from the injuries, an-
other thing that has slowed
Bay’s production with the Mets,
he said, was tinkering with his
batting stance last season.

JUPITER, Fla. — Despite a new hair-
cut and new uniform, Jose Reyes was
easy to recognize on his first day at
spring training Thursday.
Several dozen fans shouted Reyes’
name as they clustered along a practice-
field fence at the Miami Marlins’ com-
plex, and when he walked over to sign
autographs, the tumult resembled a
New York subway station at rush hour.
“Don’t push! Don’t push!” one fan
said.
“Make a line, for God’s sake!” said an-
other.
That’s why the Marlins signed Reyes:
to cause a commotion. They figure he’ll
do it on the bases, leading off and using
his speed to disrupt defenses, like last
year with the New York Mets when he
won the NL batting championship.
There’s also the Big Apple-style buzz
he’s bringing to the Marlins, a franchise
in transition after finishing last in NL
attendance each of the past seven years.
The Marlins anticipate sellout crowds
this season in their new ballpark, and
they’re being touted as potential playoff
contenders thanks to an offseason
spending spree.
The biggest deal was a $106 million,
six-year contract for Reyes, and the
shortstop already ranks among the most
popular players with Marlins fans. His
No. 7 jersey has become a common
sight in Miami.
“They haven’t seen me play here yet,”
he said. “When they see me play, they’re
going to fall in love with me, because
I’m a guy who gives 100 percent every
day.”
They loved him in New York, where
he made the All-Star team four times
and hit .337 last season with 39 steals
and an NL-high 16 triples.
He had been with the organization
since age 16, but the cash-strapped fran-
chise didn’t make a serious offer when
he became a free agent this offseason.
Marlins officials began courting him in
person at a New York hotel at midnight,
only moments after the signing period
began.
He sealed his deal with Miami at the
winter meetings, and Reyes is now so
eager to start earning his big salary that
he reported for camp three days before
the first full-squad workout.
“This is my new team, my new fam-
ily,” he said. “It’s a good feeling.”
Reyes sported closely cropped hair af-
ter having his dreadlocks shorn to com-
ply with the Marlins’ dress code. He said
he likes the new look, but his daughter
needed time getting accustomed to it.

JUPITER, Fla. — The offseason has
been a whirlwind for suddenly famous
St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Da-
vid Freese. After rocketing to stardom
as the NL championship series and
World Series MVP, the team’s No. 6 hit-
ter got the red carpet treatment all over.
There was a late-night sitdown with
David Letterman, an appearance on the
Country Music Awards and countless
interviews. He savored them all.
The biggest honor was getting recog-
nized at the Texas-Missouri football
game not long after the Cardinals fin-
ished off the Texas Rangers.
“Seeing the highlights on the Jum-
botron, that crowd on its feet for two
minutes or however long it was, that
was incredible,” Freese said Thursday, a
big grin on his face. “That was an amaz-
ing feeling.”
Another highlight was visiting his al-
ma mater, Lafayette High School, in St.
Louis County.
“I had a great time in L.A. and all
that,” Freese said, “but the stuff that
really hits home is stuff that’s closer to
home.”
Around Thanksgiving, he decided
that baseball would always come first.
The celebrity appearances didn’t halt
completely, but Freese had his priorities
straight. He arrived at spring training a
few days early, ready to work on an
encore for a magical October that prob-
ably can’t be topped.
“It would have been a shame to not
have taken advantage of the things that
he was able to do and see, because
some people never, ever, experience
that in their lifetime. Most don’t,” man-
ager Mike Matheny said. “He had that
timeframe and then it ended and he got
pretty diligent. If you look at him, he
looks in as good a shape as I’ve ever
seen him.”
Freese hit five homers and drove in 21
runs in the postseason, becoming the
sixth player to be named MVP of a
league championship series and World
Series in the same season. Rather than
worry about heightened expectations,
he’ll concentrate on just doing his part.
When he began lifting weights with
teammates Matt Holliday and Chris
Carpenter in St. Louis, “it was go time,
it was 2012.”
That’s the way it’s got to be.

It might take a group effort by
all sevenWyomingValley Confer-
ence Class 3A teams to knock off
Delaware Valley from the top of
District 2 at this weekend’s indi-
vidual tournament at Hazleton
Area.
The Warriors, who rolled to
the district duals title earlier this
month and won two meets at the
PIAA Championships, are the
runaway favorite to claim their
first team title in school history
this weekend. They enter the
tourney with six No. 1 seeds and
three No. 2s. No other team has
two top seeds and just two other
schools have two second seeds.
The defending teamchampion
is Pittston Area, which was third
in the WVC Division I standings
this season. Thetwoteams ahead
of the Patriots, Coughlin and
Wyoming Valley West, were both
blasted by DelVal at district
duals. Coughlin is looking for its
first team championship since
1995, while a winfor the Spartans
would be their first since 2002.
It won’t be easy for the WVCto
stop Delaware Valley, which ran
away with the teamtrophy at last
weekend’s Lackawanna League
Tournament winning by 127
points over the second-place
Abington Heights.
FOUR TO GO
There has only been one wres-
tler fromtheLackawanna League
to win four district champion-
ships, West Scranton’s Dave Mor-
gan from 2001-04. Delaware Val-
ley’s C.J. Palmer is looking to tie
Morgan’s mark and become just
the 23rd wrestler in the entire
district to accomplish the feat.
SHOOTING FOR THREE
Jamie Scarantino has quietly
had a nice career for Pittston Ar-
ea. After taking fifth in his first
district tournament as a fresh-
man, he has won two champion-
ships in row. Now, the 103-poun-
der is looking for his third
straight title. He enters as the top
seed in his bracket with a 24-5 re-
cord and enters with 103 career
wins. He is the only wrestler in
the 3A tournament looking to
earn the accolade.
A REPEAT PERFORMANCE
After finishing third in the dis-
trict his first two years, Crest-
wood’s Kyle Hankinson claimed
his first title in 2011 and placed
fourth at regionals. Now, he’s
gunning for his second straight
D2-3Atitle. He’s the No. 3 seed at
145 entering with a 22-2 record
and 91 career wins.
GOING FOR FIRST GOLD
The top wrestlers don’t always
win district championships.
Just as Chad Hoffman.
The Hazleton Area senior
placed eighth at the PIAA Cham-
pionships last season and is the
district’s only returning state
medalist in Class 3A. He did all
that last year without winning a
district title, being a two-time
third-place finisher. He may be in
line for his first district title this
weekend at his home gym. He’s
the top seed at 195 with a record
of 28-3 and has 102 career wins.
Wyoming Valley West’s Kyle
Krasavage is ina similar situation
as Hoffman. His previous two
seasons he placedsecond, includ-
ing a trip to states in 2010, and
was one winawayfromstates last
year. Entering with 90 career
wins and a 26-2 mark this season,
he is the No. 2 seed at 126.
Coughlin’s Brad Emerick (285
pounds), the only unbeaten in
Class 3A at 33-0, may have the
best chance to win his first dis-
trict gold. The junior is seeded
first in his bracket and no one in
his weight has less than five loss-
es. He took third last year.
Also placing third last year and
being a No. 1 seed this time
around is Crestwood’s Bob Gray.
A senior, he’s 18-14 this season
and sits atop the 113-pound
bracket.
Second-place finishers from
last year looking for their first
gold medal are Coughlin’s Billy
Poray (113) and Frankie Mah-
moud (138) and Crestwood’s
Roger Legg (182).
ROOKIE STEPPING STONE
Keep an eye on the following
freshmen who pulled upsets
throughout this seasonandcould
pull off a few more and grab a
gold medal: Coughlin’s Bobby
Hawkins (103); Hazleton Area’s
Larry Romanchik (113); Crest-
wood’s Dan Ritz (126); and
Wyoming Valley West’s Cody
Cordes (145). The foursome have
combined for a 94-30 mark.

Warrior currently has 90 career
wins. He could have his hands
full with Dallas’ Steven Mingy
(22-18) and Meyers’ Jeff Nealon
(25-9) also seeded in the brack-
et. He won golds at 119 the
previous two years.
A REPEAT PERFORMANCE
Winning a district title is an
achievement for any wrestler,
winning two is twice as nice.
Five grapplers are up for that
honor this weekend, but only
four can win.
That’s because Lake-Leh-
man’s Nick Shelley (21-3) and
Dallas’ Bill Dixon (26-5) are
both in the 160-pound weight
class and both are seniors.
Shelley’s teammates Bryan
Carter (15-2, 152) and Austin
Harry (30-1, 126) are also look-
ing for their second straight. As
is Meyers senior Darren Stuck-
er (18-4, 145), who missed out
on states last year by one win.
GOING FOR FIRST GOLD
A trio of Dallas wrestlers –
Dominic DeGraba (106), Ste-
ven Mingy (132) and Kris Roc-
cograndi (152) – were all sec-
ond-place finishers last year
and will be looking to get over
the hump this weekend.
DeGraba and Roccograndi
are top seeds with records of
36-8 and 20-6, respectively,
while Mingy (22-18) is a No. 4
seed.
In addition to the Mountain-
eers, Hanover Area’s Steve
Radzwilla was a third-place
finisher at 171 in 2011. This
year, he’s the top seed at 182,
entering with a 26-4 mark.
At 195, Nanticoke’s Pedro
Bracero is the No. 1 seed with
upper-hand are Lake-Lehman’s
John Tomasura (106) and Jim-
my Stuart (113). They are both
seeded second in their respec-
tive brackets. Hanover Area’s
Dominic Vitale, seeded fourth
at 138, is also an intriguing
candidate entering with a 24-7
record. GAR’s Zac Faust, a
220-pounder, is in a weight
with just five wrestlers, but the
top seed is Lackawanna Trail’s
Eric Laytos, a state champion
in 2010.
LOOKING AHEAD

gional Tournament, which will
be held March 2-3 at William-
sport High School.
just one loss on his record
opposed to 22 wins. He was a
third-place finisher at 189 a
year ago.
GAR sophomore A.J. Luton
(113), Meyers’ Kashif Alston
(126) and Dallas’ Zach Ma-
cosky (138) were also third-
place finishers and regional
qualifiers last season. Wyoming
Area’s Nick Heck (138) was
second-place finisher in 2010
and is this year’s top seed.

MARANA, Ariz. — The roar
resonated across Dove Moun-
tainfromfans packedaroundthe
18thgreenas Tiger Woods, need-
ing a birdie on the last hole to
stay in his match, hit a shot that
dropped out of the Arizona sky
and landed 5 feet from the hole.
That was followed by silence.
Woods missed the putt so bad-
ly that it never even touched the
hole.
No one was more surprised
than Nick Watney, who removed
his cap to shake hands with
Woods after a1-upvictoryThurs-
day in the Match Play Cham-
pionship. It was the third
straight time in this fickle event
that Woods failed to get out of
the second round, and it raised
more questions about his ability
to make key putts that once
seemed so automatic.
“I was fighting the blocks all
day withmy putter,” saidWoods,
who missed three putts inside10
feet onthelast sixholes. “Left-to-
right putt, I took it slightly shut
right there, and I knew it — and
blocked it open.”
Watney was so sure that
Woods would square the match
that he already had his yardage
bookout, checkingthe hole loca-
tion on the first green (the 19th
hole of their match), trying to
decide if 3-wood was the right
club off the tee.
“The old adage is to expect
your opponent to make it,” Wat-
ney said. “And when it’s Tiger
Woods, you really expect him to
make it.”
Just not this Tiger Woods.
“I didn’t miss a single shot
coming in, which is good. And
that was fun, to hit the ball that
well,” Woods said. “Unfortunate-
ly, I just didn’t make a putt when
I needed it.”
Two weeks ago, Woods
couldn’t buy a putt at Pebble
Beach and closed with a 75,
which was 11 shots worse than
playing partner and eventual
winner Phil Mickelson. He also
struggled to make putts in Abu
Dhabi, when he failed to win de-
spite being tied for the 54-hole
lead with Robert Rock.
In other matches Thursday:
• U.S. Open champion Rory
McIlroy, the No. 2 seed, made
only three birdies but won two
straight holes with par to put
away Anders Hansen and ad-
vance to the third round. He
plays Miguel Angel Jimenez, the
48-year-old Spaniard who beat
PGA champion Keegan Bradley.
• Dustin Johnson, headed for
defeat inthe openingrounduntil
outlasting JimFuryk in 20 holes,
blasted Francesco Molinari early
and rolled to a 7-and-5 win. “I
was definitely in a better mood,”
Johnson said of the short day.
Johnson has played two medi-
um-length players in Furyk and
Molinari. Next up is another pea
shooter, Mark Wilson, who
breezed to a win over Robert
Rock of England.
•Steve Stricker celebratedhis
45thbirthday instyle. Twodown
on the back nine, he rallied to
catch Louis Oosthuizen, then
won the match with a 20-foot
birdie putt on the 18th hole that
had so much break even Stricker
wasn’t sure he could make it.
He will play Hunter Mahan,
who never trailed in beating Y.E.
Yang.
• Ernie Els, one day after be-
coming only the third No. 64
seed to win, had another short
day that precedes a long flight
home. He lost, 5 and 4, to Peter
Hanson of Sweden.

Robby Gordon and Michael
McDowell earned the two
spots up for grabs in the first
race, while Joe Nemechek and
Dave Blaney each raced their
way into the 500 in the second
qualifying race.
Two-time Daytona 500 win-
ner Michael Waltrip failed to
qualify for the race after
wrecking as he tried to return
to the track surface after a late
pit stop. The accident means
it will be the first time since
1972 neither Darrell Waltrip
or Michael Waltrip will be in
NASCAR’s biggest race of the
season.
“I just went the wrong way
and lost the car,” said a deject-
ed Waltrip. “I feel like I let ev-
erybody down. I don’t know
what to say. It’s just sad.”
The two qualifying races
could not have been more dif-
ferent, and both were far cal-
mer than Saturday night’s ex-
hibition Daytona 500. That
race was the first display of
new rules NASCAR imple-
mented to break up the two-
car tandem racing that fans
vehemently opposed.
But the return of pack rac-
ing led to three multi-car acci-
dents and a sling-shot pass at
the end of the race that gave
Kyle Busch the win over Stew-
art.
The first race on Thursday
had one early five-car accident
that began when McDowell
ran into David Gilliland, who
shot directly into Juan Pablo
Montoya and Paul Menard.
Menard then questioned the
style of racing NASCAR has
created.
“It’s a mess out there,” said
Menard, who was also
wrecked in the Shootout.
“NASCAR is trying to dictate
physics. Physics says two cars
are going to push and they’re
trying to make rule changes to
keep us from doing it, so it’s
kind of hybrid pack racing and
tandem racing. It’s causing a
pretty unsafe situation.”
On the last lap of the race,
with Stewart trying to hold off
Dale Earnhardt Jr. in a race to
the checkered flag, Danica Pa-
trick was wrecked as the pack
raced down the backstretch.
Patrick was hit by Aric Al-
mirola as they raced along the
backstretch. The contact sent
her car sliding across the
track and into an inside retain-
ing wall. Her Chevrolet lifted
off its wheels as it hit the
SAFER barrier, which notice-
ably softened the blow.
She was not injured and will
make her Daytona 500 debut
on Sunday.
“It happened really quick,”
she said. “We were just look-
ing to finish, to be honest, and
unfortunately that wasn’t the
case. It felt pretty big. I don’t
know what it looked like.”
Stewart, who owns Patrick’s
car, said he tried to watch her
race from his rearview mirror.
“I got to see a replay of it,
but I didn’t see how it start-
ed,” he said. “The little bit I
could see, I thought she did a
good job. There wasn’t any
doubt in my mind she would
do that. It’s hard for her now
because she’s trying to gain
the confidence of the guys
around her that she’s solid and
is going to make good deci-
sions.
“She’s trying to gain the oth-
er drivers’ confidence.”
The second race was cau-
tion-free and had very little ac-
tion until the end, when Ken-
seth passed Biffle for the win.
It made it unclear what the
Daytona 500 will look like, but
Stewart, who is 0 for 13 in this
race, said he’s not been hold-
ing back during SpeedWeeks
and will race hard on Sunday.
DAYTONA

a conference championship, last
winning in 2003. Wilkes and
coach Jerry Rickrode won the
league in 2001.
Misericordia joined the Free-
domConferencein2008-09. Both
the men’s and women’s programs
are looking for their first title.
On the men’s side, the Cougars
(20-6) have won 11 straight after
beating FDU-Florham 76-73 in
the semifinals. Wilkes (17-8)
topped Eastern 103-98 in over-
time.
“It’s pretty evenly matched
teams. You could probably pick it
out of a hat and have just as much
luck,” Misericordia coach Trevor
Woodruff said. “It’s going to be a
grind. It’s going to be two phys-
ical teams – tough, interior
teams. It’ll probably come down
to who makes the fewextra jump
shots, the few extra free throws
one way or the other.
“I expect it to be a terrific col-
lege basketball game.”
The Colonels, meanwhile, are
heating up offensively. They shot
an impressive 32-of-62 (52 per-
cent) from the floor in 45 min-
utes against the Eagles on
Wednesday.
“I thought we did a decent job
in the second half, getting into
our half-court offense,” Rickrode
said after the game. “Now we
didn’t get into it late in the game
because they kept fouling us, but
once we were in it, we moved the
ball well – especially around the
perimeter – and were able to find
some open threes.
“We did a good job shooting
the ball and knocking down our
free throws late.”
Though the game happened
backinNovember, Wilkes has the
distinction of handing Misericor-
dia its worst loss of the season at
78-50.
“We erased that one,” Wood-
ruff said with a smile. “That one
(makes) you just throw your
hands up. It was over that quick.
“I tried to watch (the film)
leading into our second game
with them, but nothing I was go-
ing to watch was going to help us
prepare. We were so bad that …
there wasn’t any sense in going
back to it.”
For the women, Misericordia
(16-10) was the only Freedom
Conference team to beat top-
seeded King’s during the regular
season. But that came at the An-
derson Center.
Saturday’s tilt will be at Scan-
dlon, where the Lady Monarchs
(22-4) have won 15 straight, in-
cluding a dramatic 55-53 victory
against Eastern in the semifinals.
Down by one, Senior Samantha
Simcox came up with an offen-
sive rebound, scoring the put-
back and drawing a foul with two
seconds left.
“I think we have not yet played
our best basketball,” King’s
coachBrianDonoghuesaidhead-
ing into the playoffs. “They un-
derstand that they’re playing ve-
ry well, but they understand we
still have a couple more things
that we can do, especially offen-
sively.”
The Cougars, meanwhile, had
much less tension in their semi-
final win, closingstronglyagainst
four-time defending champ De-
Sales, the teamthat beat themin
last year’s title game.
“I told them (after the win),
‘Let’s make sure this isn’t the
highlight of our season,’” Miser-
icordia interim coach Dave Mar-
tin said. “Just getting back to the
championship shouldn’t be the
highlight of our season.”

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. —
Reserve Andre Dawkins scored
22 points and freshman Austin
Rivers added 20 to lead No. 5
Duke to a 74-66 victory over
No. 15 Florida State on Thurs-
day night.
The win kept the Blue Devils
(24-4, 11-2) tied with No. 7
North Carolina for first place in
the Atlantic Coast Conference
while Florida State (19-8, 10-3)
dropped a game behind.
Dawkins scored 18 points
over the last 11:23 of the first
half, going 5 of 7 from 3-point
range as Duke took a 39-32
lead. The Blue Devils took the
lead for keeps at 17-15 on a
layup by Rivers with 10:44
remaining in the half.
Ryan Kelly added 13 points
and Miles Plumlee had 10 for
Duke, which shot 42.3 percent
from the field, including 13 of
28 from 3-point range.
Michael Snaer had 18 points
for the Seminoles, while Ber-
nard James added 13 points,
nine rebounds and five blocked
shots. Snaer, whose first of two
buzzer-beating game-winning
3-pointers this season ended
Duke’s 45-game home winning
streak 33 days ago, sat out the
last 9:49 of the first half after
drawing his second personal
foul.
The Seminoles, who have
never won an ACC title, beat
Duke and North Carolina last
month. But they never got a
shot at any last-second heroics
Thursday although they got
within three points twice, the
last at 61-58 with 4:17 left on a
three-point play by James.
Dawkins scored 12 points in a
3-minute span that sparked a
14-4 run midway through the
half that gave the Blue Devils a
26-17 lead. The 6-foot-4 Daw-
kins hit successive 3s just 24
seconds apart a bit later to give
the Blue Devils their largest
lead of the half, 39-26. Duke led
53-40 6 minutes into the second
half.
Dawkins finished 6 of 9 and
Rivers was 4 of 8 from 3-point
range.
Florida State was just 4 of 15
from long range, 12 of 12 at the
free throw line and shot 39.7

Jobless applications steady
Weekly applications for unemploy-
ment benefits were unchanged and the
four-week average of applications fell to
its lowest level in four years last week.
The figures add to evidence that show
the job market is improving.
No states reported significant in-
creases in unemployment applications.
For the week ended Feb. 11, Pennsylva-
nia showed the second-largest decline
in applications, 3,789, due to fewer
layoffs in the construction, retail, scien-
tific and technology services and enter-
tainment industries.
State data lags one week behind the
national data.
P&G cutting 5,700 jobs
Consumer products maker Procter &
Gamble Inc. said Thursday it plans to
cut 5,700 jobs over the next year and a
half as part of a cost-cutting plan.
The job cuts equal about 10 percent
of the company’s non-manufacturing
workforce, and are expected to be
complete by the end of the fiscal year
that ends June 2013. The cuts include
1,600 jobs that P&G announced earlier
this month.
Other parts of the cost-cutting plan
include streamlining operations and
cutting costs related to packaging and
materials.
Oil sands survives test
A European Union committee failed
Thursday to reach a definite decision
on labeling oil derived from oil sands
as worse for climate change than crude
oil — a proposal vigorously opposed by
officials in Canada, where such oil is
produced.
Canada had threatened to take the
EU to the World Trade Organization if
it singled out that type of oil as worse
for the environment than others. But
the European Commission contends
that science justifies its proposal.
T-Mobile losing subs
Customers have been leaving T-
Mobile USA, the country’s No. 4 cell-
phone company, for the last two years.
Now that all three of the bigger carriers
have the iPhone, that stream has turn-
ed into a flood.
The company on Thursday said it
lost a net 526,000 subscribers in the
fourth quarter. Worse, it lost a net
802,000 subscribers on contract-based
plans, which are the most lucrative.
That’s an unheard-of figure for an in-
dustry that was characterized by rapid
growth for more than a decade.

The next building to go up in
the CenterPoint Commerce &
Trade Park will be hard to miss.
Mericle Commercial Real Es-
tate Services on Thursday an-
nounced construction of a
120,416-square-foot speculative
“flex” building, saying it is the
first project in the new Center-
Point East Phase IIC section. Be-
cause it will be highly visible
from I-81 and I-476, there will be
more emphasis on the exterior
appearance, said Mericle spokes-
man Jim Cummings.
“Nice exterior finishes and
high-end glass” will be used both
to impress passing drivers and
“so that it will be attractive not
just to manufacturers and distrib-
utors, but to office and medical
tenants,” Cummings said.
Flex buildings are designed to
offer varied amounts of space, ac-
commodating one or many ten-
ants.
“Pretty much all the buildings
we construct are designed so
they can be subdivided,” Cum-
mings said. Occasionally a tenant
will want the entire building, but
more often “multiple businesses
of different types” take smaller
spaces.
Work is well under way on the
newproject site, a 22.78-acre par-
cel located at 501-575 Keystone
Ave. in Jenkins Township, a Mer-
icle release stated.
Mericle Vice President Bob Be-
secker estimates the building
will house four to eight tenants
and more than100 jobs when ful-
ly occupied. The space can be
subdivided as small as 12,083
square feet.
Besecker said the building will
be ready for tenants in late sum-
mer.
Cummings said Mericle is see-
ing a lot of interest inspaces from
5,000 to 30,000 square feet. “We
just needtostayaheadof demand
and have something to show
when companies come calling,”
he said.
The building will be the 20th
developed by Mericle in Center-
Point since 2005 and will grow
the total square feet constructed
intheparkto5.5million. Closeto
3,000 people work in Center-
Point.
While declining to provide a
figure, Cummings said the occu-
pancy rate inCenterPoint is high-
er than state or national levels.

NEWYORK—Sears saidThursdaythat
it’s unloading some of its profit-busting
stores, but theretailer fell short of revealing
how it plans to woo shoppers back into its
remaining ones.
Investors have long speculated the trou-
bled retailer could sell off its massive real
estate holdings to generate extra cash. But
industry watchers say that will do little to
solve Sears’ main problem: Rivals have
been able to lure customers away fromthe
chainbecauseof itsdrabstoresandunexcit-
ing merchandise.
“The image is atrocious. The stores are
old and they’re run down. They don’t look
like a nice place to visit,” said Ron Fried-
man, a partner in the retail and consumer
products industrygroupof accountingfirm
MarcumLLP in NewYork.
As part of a plan to turn around the com-
pany, Sears, based outside of Chicago, said
on Thursday that it will spin off its smaller
Hometown and Outlet stores as well as
some hardware stores ina deal expectedto
raise $400 million to $500 million.
Inaseparatedeal, Sears will sell 11stores
tothe real estate companyGeneral Growth
Properties for $270 million. The company
also said it plans to cut inventory by $580
million.
Shares soared 19 percent Thursday on
the news, despite that the company alsore-
porteda$2.4billionlossforthefourthquar-
ter that was much worse than what Wall
Street analysts had expected.
Industry watchers weren’t as impressed
as Wall Street. Theysaidthat Sears’ biggest
problemis that the company hasn’t invest-
ed in its stores.

NEWYORK—Pepsi is hop-
ing to win back soda drinkers
with a compromise.
Some people don’t like the
calories in regular soda, but
loathe the taste of zero-calorie
diet drinks. So the nation’s No.
2 cola company is rolling out
“Pepsi Next,” a cola that has
about half the calories of regu-
lar Pepsi at 60 calories per can.
The cola, which is slated to
hit store shelves nationally by
the end of March, is Pepsi’s
biggest product launch in
years. Thedrinkcomes as peo-
ple increasingly move away
from sugary drinks to water
and other lower-calorie bever-
ages because of health con-
cerns. It’s also an attempt by
Pepsi to revive the cola wars
against Coke and others.
Pepsi Next isn’t the first
drink to try to hit the sweet
spot between diet and regular
cola. Dr Pepper Snapplerolled
out its low-calorie Dr Pepper
Ten, which has 10 calories.
The company said the drink,
which has sugar unlike its diet
soda, helped boost its fourth-
quarter sales.
But coming up with a suc-
cessful “mid-calorie soda,”
which has more calories, has
been more challenging for
beverage makers. In 2001,
Coke rolled out “C2” and Pep-
si in 2004 introduced its “Pep-
si Edge,” both of which had
about half the calories of regu-
lar soda. Both products also
were taken off the market by
2006 because of poor sales.
Pepsi says its latest stab at
an in-between soda uses a dif-
ferent formula to more closely
imitate the taste of regular so-
da. Pepsi Next is made with a
mixof three artificial sweeten-
ers and high fructose corn syr-
up.

Personal Training For Everyone
I decided to seek help from a trainer after all my failed efforts to get motivated and back to the
gym. Going shopping for a wedding dress was fast approaching and I gained about 30 lbs.
over the spring and summer months. I knew I had to do something so I bought some other
diet plans off of infomercials and nothing seemed to get me motivated to stick with it.
When I went to the sales team at Odyssey, they matched me up with Mary Majikes. From
the frst consultation, Mary was professional and genuinely wanted to help me meet my goals.
I decided to buy 12 sessions and meet with Mary once a week. During the time I spent with
Mary she stayed focused on what my needs were to lose weight. She gave me tons of advice
on weight training, eating clean and ways to keep motivated. I knew Mary was invested in
helping me when she started to send me texts to give me advice on different supplements,
ways to use faxseeds, whey protein, etc. Mary would also send me texts to see how I was
doing with my exercise plans during the week to make sure I was on track. Every week I
noticed that I was getting stronger by the amount of weights I was able to lift and my cardio
endurance was getting better as well. I also started to enjoy spin class again.
While training with Mary I lost 25lbs, 8% body fat, and 20 inches. I would recommend
Mary to anyone who is looking to get back into shape or to mix things up if you’re lacking
motivation. Mary is passionate in what she does and is very knowledgeable of her industry.
I went to other gyms before and the trainers would use the same workouts on all their clients
and would not spend the time on the nutrition aspect of losing weight. Mary spends the time
to create workouts specifcally to her client needs and gives nutrition advice based on their
lifestyle. - Krissy Cesari
