Williams going home
after first round
Venus Williams absorbed
a lopsided first-round loss
at the Grand Slam tour-
nament, Monday, raising
questions about how
much longer she will keep
playing tennis while deal-
ing with an energy-sap-
ping illness. Looking le-
thargic, and rarely show-
ing off the power-based
game that carried her to
five Wimbledon titles and
seven majors overall,
Williams departed meekly
with a 6-1, 6-3 defeat
against 79th-ranked Ele-
na Vesnina of Russia.
Only once before — as a
teenager making her
Wimbledon debut in 1997
— had Williams exited so
early at the All England
Club. She hadn’t lost in
the first round at any
Grand Slam tournament
in 61/2 years. Still, Wil-
liams said she’ll be at the
London Olympics next
month and is “planning”
to be back at Wimbledon
next year. Page 1B

WASHINGTON — The Su-
preme Court threw out key pro-
visions of Arizona’s crackdown
on illegal immigrants Monday
but said a much-debated por-
tion could go forward — that
police must check the status of
people stopped for various rea-
sons who might appear to be in
the U.S. illegally.
The court upheld the “show
me your papers” requirement,
but even there the justices said
the provision could be subject
to additional legal challenges.
And they removed some teeth
by prohibiting officers from ar-
resting people on immigration
charges.
The Obama administration
had assailed the Arizona law as
an unconstitutional intrusion
into an area under Washington’s
control, and the court struck
down provisions that would
have made state crimes out of
federal immigration violations.
But several lawmakers and
civil rights groups said the part
of the law left in place by the
high court was an invitation to
racial profiling.
The court announced Thurs-
day would be the last day of rul-
ings this term, which means the
decision on President Barack
Obama’s landmark health care
law probably will come then.
The Arizona decision land-
ed in the middle of a presiden-
tial campaign in which Oba-
ma has been heavily courting
Latino voters and Republican
challenger Mitt Romney has
been struggling to win Latino
support. During a drawn-out
primary campaign, Romney
and the other GOP candidates
mostly embraced a hard line
on illegal immigrants, though

U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Ha-
zleton, madehis nameinnational
politics when, as themayor of Ha-
zleton, he instituted the Illegal
Immigration Relief Act, the first
local ordinance cracking down
on illegal immi-
grationinthe na-
tion.
On Monday,
after the U.S. Su-
preme Court an-
nounced its
opinion in the
case of Arizo-
na’s anti-illegal immigration law,
Barletta released the following
statement that applauded the
court’s findings that uphelda cen-
tral part of what is calledSB1070:
“By upholding the central part
of SB 1070 – which was also the
most controversial part of the
Arizona law– thousands of prop-
erly trained lawenforcement offi-
cers inArizonacanhelpthefeder-
al government enforce immigra-
tion law. Increased enforcement
will be an additional deterrent
and make it much more difficult
for illegal aliens to hide in Arizo-
na, take jobs awayfromAmerican
citizens and legal immigrants,
and obtain benefits through the
use of fraudulent documents.
“Today’s opinion by the U.S.
Supreme Court clearly reinforces
that states can work in harmony
with the federal government to
address the problems caused by
illegal immigration, including
fraud and crime. The Supreme
Court has once again ruled that
states do play an integral part in
combating illegal immigration.”

BEAR CREEK TWP. —
When wildlife conservation of-
ficer Gerald Kapral made his
routine check at the Pennsylva-
nia Game Commission’s public
shooting range along Suscon
Road last Monday, things were
pretty normal.
No one was using the range
that afternoon and everything
was in order, Kapral said.
By the next morning, vandals
had transformed the facility in-
to a nightmare.
During the night, vandals
spray painted racist slogans and
other graffiti over most of the
concrete floor and several
wooden shooting benches.
“It’s pretty disturbing,” Ka-
pral said. “They painted swasti-
kas and an outline of a body,
among other things. It’s very
frustrating that someone would
do this.”
The range is located on State
Game Lands 91 in Bear Creek
Township. In 2009 the commis-
sion spent approximately
$100,000 to refurbish the range,
which included adding more
shooting stations and putting
the entire facility under a roof.
The range is open to the pub-
lic, and users must possess a
valid hunting license or a shoot-
ing range permit from the com-
mission.
Commissioner Jay Delaney,
who represents the Northeast
Region and was instrumental in
getting the ranges refurbished,

Luzerne County Council may
rethink a new requirement for
employees to file an affidavit
disclosing same-sex domestic
partners, Chairman JimBobeck
said Monday.
Council put the requirement
in a section of the new adminis-
trative code defining family
members for nepotism purpos-
es.
A citizen filed a complaint
with the county ethics commis-
sion last week, saying the code
discriminates by failing to also
recognize or require affidavits
for heterosexual partners who
live together, according to two
sources with direct knowledge
of the complaint who asked not
to be identified.
“Nepotism is not gender spe-
cific. All ‘domestic partners,’ re-
gardless of gender, should be
treated equally,” the complaint
says.
The administrative code de-
fines domestic partners as two
same-gendered adults in a com-
mitted, exclusive, lifetime rela-
tionship who share at least one
residence and the common ne-
cessities of life. They must be fi-
nancially interdependent for at
least a year and responsible for
each other’s welfare, the code
said.
Impacted employees are re-
quired by the code to file an affi-
davit with the personnel direc-
tor certifying these conditions

HARRISBURG – No player
matched all five winning
numbers drawn in Monday’s
“Pennsylvania Cash 5”
game, so the jackpot will be
worth $325,000.
Lottery officials said 66
players matched four num-
bers and won $251.50 each;
2,512 players matched three
numbers and won $11 each;
and 30,389 players matched
two numbers and won $1
each.
• Thursday’s “Pennsylva-

will be worth at least $1.510
million because no player
holds a ticket with one row
that matches all six winning

BUTLER TWP. – A man
was arraigned Monday by
District Judge David Baril-

charges he threatened a
woman with a firearm.
Jarrod Paisley, 30, of St.

NANTICOKE – Police on
Monday arrested a Wilkes-
Barre man after he allegedly en-
tered a Nanticoke pharmacy
with a shotgun and demanded
pain killers.
Nanticoke police charged
Mark Steven Benjamin Sr. of
North Sherman Street with
three felony counts of robbery
and one misdemeanor count
each of theft by unlawful taking
and prohibited offensive weap-
ons.
According to court papers,
city police responded to Spo-
tanski’s Pharmacy at 243 Pros-
pect St. at 12:39 p.m. on Mon-
day for a report of an armed
robbery.
Pharmacist clerk Kathy
Smith told police a man en-
tered the business and demand-
ed fentanyl or painkillers while
pointing what appeared to be a
shotgun in a large garbage bag
in her direction. Smith said she
could see only the end of the
shotgun barrel.
In fear for her life, Smith told
the man she had no fentanyl but
quickly gave him a bottle of ge-
neric of Oxycodone and aceta-
minophen tablets she had in
front of her. The man took the
bottle and ran from the store.
Store employee Barbara An-
tolick said the man ran north on
South Prospect Street, and
both she and Smith provided a
detailed description, which in-
vestigators had Luzerne Coun-
ty 911 broadcast.
Investigators reviewed sur-
veillance footage owned by the
city of Nanticoke and deter-
mined the suspect entered a
charcoal gray Nissan Frontier
pickup. They had 911 broadcast
a supplement to the descrip-
tion.
Shortly afterward, investiga-
tors were notified by Hanover
Township police that they stop-
ped a man who fit the descrip-
tion of the robbery suspect on
Middle Road near the entrance
to Hanover Industrial Park.
Investigators arrived at the
scene and found it was Benja-
min who was stopped and that
he matched the description of
the robbery suspect except for
the color of his shirt. They also
found pills matching the de-
scription Smith provided be-
hind the driver’s seat of the
pickup, which was owned by
Benjamin’s mother, Eleanor
Benjamin, of Nanticoke.
Investigators said Mark Ben-
jamin confessed that he com-
mitted the robbery “because of
economic reasons,” that he was
sorry and that he intended to
sell the pills. He told police he
hid a “broken shotgun” under a
bed in a spare bedroom of his
mother’s house in Nanticoke,
changed his shirt and hid that
and a baseball cap in the Nis-
san.
Eleanor Benjamin consented
to a search of the spare bed-
room and investigators reco-
vered a loaded shotgun with no
stock under the bed. They
found a shirt, baseball cap, sun-
glasses and a broken piece of
shotgun in the Nissan.
Benjamin was arraigned be-
fore District Judge Donald
Whittaker, who scheduled Ben-
jamin’s preliminary hearing for
1 p.m. July 3. Benjamin was
lodged at Luzerne County Cor-
rectional Facility for lack of
$100,000 cash bail.
A woman who sat behind
Benjamin at the hearing told
Whittaker that Benjamin had
been in a car accident and was
on prescription medications.
She asked the judge about Ben-
jamin having access to the med-
ication at the prison. Whittaker
told her she could go to the
prison and talk to medical staff
there about the situation.

WASHINGTON — Democrat-
ic Rep. Dennis Kucinich has
thrown himself into a latest
cause: support of hunger-striking
postal employees who oppose
cuts to the Postal Service.
The congressman from Ohio
playedhost Mondaytopostal car-
riers, mail handlers and others
outside the Capitol, pledging he
would vote against efforts to
shutter post offices and cut em-
ployeebenefits as Congress seeks
to close budget shortfalls in be-
leaguered postal operations.
“There’s been an effort to dis-
mantle the Postal Service,” Ku-
cinich said at the morning gath-
ering. “An effort to take down the
entire infrastructure of the post
office.”
Supporting the hunger strikers
is yet another public standfor the
liberal leader, who lost his pri-
mary election this spring to a fel-
low Democratic lawmaker after
the Ohio district maps were re-
drawn, cutting short his colorful
career. He is expected to step
down from office in January.
The postal service has been
losing millions of dollars a day in
the email era, and officials have
consideredstoppingSaturdayde-
livery and closing post offices to
save money -- only to be met with
opposition fromsome in the pub-
lic and members of Congress.
Slow-moving legislation that
seeks to improve the postal ser-
vice’s bottom line has been mak-
ing its way through Congress.
The bill would save money in
part by changing the way the
postal employee retirement sys-
tem is funded, which employees
argued Monday has been an un-
necessary drain on financial re-
sources. The bill would also pre-
vent post office closures for the
next two years.
The bill was approved last
month in the Senate in a rare bi-
partisan agreement. But the leg-
islation has stalled in the House
where Rep. Darrel Issa, R-Calif.,
the chairman of the Oversight
and Government Reform Com-
mittee, is seeking further cut-
backs to postal operations.
The postal workers plan to
hunger strike for the next several
days in Washington, and in cities
around the country, according to
the group Community and Postal
Workers United. Workers will
hold vigils at the House congres-
sional office buildings.
Kucinich, an icon in some of
the nation’s most heated political
battles, saluted their effort but
drewthe line at joining the work-
ers on their hunger strike.
“I’ma vegan,” said Kucinich. “I
kind of am hungry all the time.”

HARRISBURG — The state

Sen. Stewart Greenleaf, an out-
spoken advocate of prison reform,
saidtherecent explosivegrowthin
the prison population underscores
the needfor change.
The prison population has
grown by more than 500 percent
since1980, largely because of laws
designed to get tough on crime,
while the state’s population ex-
panded by only 6 percent, the
Montgomery County Republican
said. The recidivismrate stands at
44percent, he said.
Thelegislationis designedtodi-

and parole violators into non-pris-

Sen.MaryJoWhite,amemberof

“We’re not winning any wars on
crime,” saidWhite, R-Venango.
Consultants from the Council of
State Governments worked with
stateofficials, legislators, judges, law-
yers andvictimadvocates todevelop
the“justicereinvestment”initiative.
While more than half of the sav-
ings inthe first five years is expect-

other purposes.

Life sentence is appealed
A Pittston Township man sentenced
earlier this month to life in prison for
the March 2011 death of 48-year-old
Lillian Calabro, has
appealed his convic-
tion and sentence to
the state Superior
Court.
Arthur Stoss, 50,
through his attorney,
David Lampman, filed
the appeal Friday.
Stoss was convicted of the charge
after a six-day jury trial in March.
County Judge William Amesbury was
required by law to impose the sen-
tence.
Prosecutors say Stoss brutally at-
tacked Calabro, of Pittston, at the Riv-
erfront Park in Pittston on March 11,
2011. Her body was found 10 days later,
washed ashore in Kirby Park in Wilkes-
Barre.

Compost hearing canceled
A zoning hearing scheduled for 7
p.m. Monday for the Dallas Area Mu-
nicipal Authority’s application to create
a compost facility at the State Correc-
tional Institution at Dallas was can-
celed due to DAMA’s application with-
drawal.
At a supervisors meeting earlier this
month, residents expressed concerns
about noise, traffic and security at the
proposed site.
DAMA Executive Director Larry
Spaciano has said the venture will be a
cooperative agreement between DAMA
and SCI-Dallas. He does not foresee
noise, traffic or safety concerns associ-
ated with the project.
DAMA Solicitor Benjamin Jones III
said the application was withdrawn
pending further research and discus-
sion with representatives from the
state Department of Corrections.
He said the DAMA board plans to
resubmit the application.

Two undercover drug agents
areconcernedabout asynthetic
drug they say directly targets
children by its name.
Scooby Snax with the car-
toon canine character on its
front issoldinat least twostores
inthearea, thedrugagentssaid.
The synthetic drug marketed
as Scooby Snax is sold as pot-
pourri inapinkandsilver reflec-
tive pouch. When smoked, it
mimics theeffects of marijuana,
the agents said.
“It canbelegallysoldbecause
thechemical compoundinmak-
ing this stuff changed,” one of
the drug agents said. “It has
beenaroundfor a whileinother
areas, but it’s beginning to be
sold locally.”
A clerk at a Kingston store,
which was identified by the
agents as selling the synthetic
drug, refused to sell Scooby
Snax to a reporter on Friday.
When a reporter stopped at the
other store in Luzerne and re-
quested Scooby Snax, a clerk
acted surprised, saying they
don’t sell dog treats.
Behind counters in both
stores were display cases con-
taining pink, silver, blue, yellow
and green pouches of potpourri
and incense. Adjacent to the
pouches inanother display case
were glass smoking pipes in
both stores.
Potpourri andincense sell for
$4 to $12 per gram.
The two drug agents, who re-
quested anonymity due to their
undercover status, said pot-
pourri and incense are known
by drug users as K2 and Spice,
which were banned last year
when Gov. TomCorbett signed
legislation making the sale and
possessionof synthetic drugs il-
legal.
Penalties for afirst offensefor
delivery of or intent to deliver
synthetic drugs are up to five
years in prison and a $15,000
fine. Possessionpenaltiesareup
to one year in jail and a $5,000
fine.

With a state budget due by Sat-
urday and likely to be voted on
sooner, state Rep. Eddie Day
Pashinski, D-Wilkes-Barre, deliv-
ered petitions bearing more than
15,000 signatures to Gov. Tom
Corbett’s office Monday urging
him to reverse proposed cuts in
education spending. Pashinski
said the welcome was less than
inviting.
“He had an
armed guard at
the door. What
did he think we
were going to
do?” Pashinski
said in a phone
interview. “It
was like he
thought we were going to crash
the party.”
Pashinski said he and state
Rep. James Roebuck, D-Philadel-
phia, were joinedby “three teach-
ers to help carry all the pet-
itions,” and were met by Secreta-
ry of Education Ronald Tomalis.
The two exchanged comments,
but Pashinski saidhe never got to
see the governor.
The petitions were drawn up
by “a bunch of different groups,”
said Kevin Hensil of the House
Democratic Communications of-
fice, so there was no easy way to
figure out howmany people from
Luzerne County signed.
Pashinski said the petition idea
had been started by teachers
unions inNortheasternPennsylva-
nia but quickly mushroomed to
signatures from around the state.
“Some are on sheets of paper,
some are onposter board, all deal
with the same basic message op-
posing school funding cuts,”
Hensil said
Pashinski and other critics ar-
gue that Corbett cut nearly $1bil-
lion in education funding last
year and is pushing for more cuts
this year, forcing local school
boards to raise taxes or cut pro-
grams and furlough staff.
The Corbett administration
has repeatedly countered that
the cuts resulted because federal
stimulus money ran out, and that
actual state money for education
increased. But Pashinski con-
tends the governor is “playing
with numbers” because he lump-
ed state subsidies for employee
Social Security taxes andstudent
transportation with basic educa-
tion money, when those pay-
ments had been separate line
items in the past.
Pashinski echoed calls by oth-
er critics to use a surplus in cash
this fiscal year to reduce pro-
posed cuts in education and so-
cial service programs. He noted
the state took in about $800 mil-
lion more than projected, and the
Republican-controlled Senate of-
fered a budget that used $500
million of that to restore some of
Corbett’s proposed cuts.
“I’maskingandwe’reaskingthat
theyutilizetheother $300million,”
Pashinski said. “Don’t make all
these local folks suffer when you
have $293 million sitting around;
this is going to cause real pain.”

WILKES-BARRE – At the request of
Mayor Tom Leighton, three City Coun-
cil members and the Parking Authority
-- along with two paid consultants and
the authority’s executive director -- met
behind closed doors Monday evening to
discuss the proposed leasing of the city’s
parking assets.
An attorney for the Pennsylvania
Newspaper Publishers’ Association said
the meeting should have been open to
the public. The Times Leader was de-
nied access to the meeting.
Parking authority solicitor Murray
Ufberg hosted the meeting on the 10th
floor of his lawfirm, Rosenn Jenkins and
Greenwald at 15 S. Franklin St. Ufberg
said the parking authority did not re-
quest the meeting.
“Mayor (Tom) Leighton asked for the
meeting,” he said.
Ufberg then had attorney Matt Rogers
of his firm cite the section of the Penn-
sylvania Sunshine Act that deals with
executive sessions in which the media
and public can be excluded. Rogers
quoted Section 708 – Executive Ses-
sions, sub-section No. 3: “To consider
the purchase or lease of real property.”
Ufberg said it did not matter if the city
and the parking were the lessee or the
lessor, that the exclusion applied.But
Melissa Melewsky, media law counsel
for the Pennsylvania Newspaper Pub-
lishers Association in Harrisburg, said
Ufberg had “completely misinterpret-
ed” that section of the law.
“That section applies only when agen-
cies are acquiring or leasing property,”
Melewsky said. “If they are divesting
property by selling it or leasing it, the
exclusion does not apply.”
Melewsky said there was a case in
Lancaster County that upheld her inter-
pretation of the Sunshine Act. In 2006,
three Lancaster County commissioners
all pleaded guilty to violating the Sun-
shine Act by holding secret meetings
prior to the 2005 sale of Conestoga View
nursing home.
“Private discussions were held to dis-
cuss the sale of county-owned proper-
ty,” Melewsky said. “The executive sec-
tion of the Sunshine Act does not apply
when the agency is getting rid of proper-
ty; it only applies when the agency is ac-
quiring or leasing property.”
Melewsky said any objector to the
meeting can file a formal objection, a
private complaint or a civil lawsuit.
Five companies have responded to the
city’s request for qualifications to lease
its 2,113 garage spaces, 160 surface lot
spaces and 800 parking meters. Leight-
on has said he wants to raise capital for
other city projects.
Attending Monday’s meeting were:
• Leighton and administrative staff
members Marie McCormick, Drew
McLaughlin, and Greg Barrouk.
• City Council members Mike Mer-
ritt, chairman, George Brown and Mau-
reen Lavelle.
• Parking Authority members Paul
Maher, chairman, Robert Jabers, Ed Ko-
tarsky, Mary Ann King and James Casey.
• Consultants Alan Wohlstetter of
Fox Rothschild, Philadelphia law firm;
J.J. Murphy of Goals Consulting.
Parking meeting is off-limits
Get-together on leasing plans draws
criticism from a media law lawyer,
who says it should have been open.

The Wilkes-Barre City Parking Authority will decide today whether to go forward with a lease on the city’s parking assets.
This is a view of the new Intermodal Transportation Center from the third floor.
Only one of the 72 voting unit mem-
bers was in favor of the county’s final
offer, union representative Paula
Schnelly said after Monday’s vote.

Ruling favors juveniles
T
he Supreme Court ruled Monday
that it is unconstitutional for state
laws to require juveniles convicted of
murder to be sentenced to life in prison
without possibility of parole.
The 5-4 decision is in line with oth-
ers the court has made, including rul-
ing out the death penalty for juveniles
and life without parole for young peo-
ple whose crimes did not involve kill-
ing. Monday’s decision left open the
possibility that judges could sentence
juveniles to life without parole in indi-
vidual cases of murder, but said state
laws cannot automatically impose such
a sentence.
The decision came in the robbery
and murder cases of Evan Miller and
Kuntrell Jackson, who were 14 when
they were convicted.
JERUSALEM
Iran focus of Russian visit
Israel urged the visiting Russian
president on Monday to step up pres-
sure on Iran to curb its suspect nuclear
program but there was no sign of any
concessions from Vladimir Putin.
With Russia an influential voice in
the international debate over Iran, the
outcome of the 24-hour visit could have
deep implications for whether Israel
decides to strike Tehran’s nuclear facil-
ities or give the international commu-
nity more time to find a diplomatic
solution to the standoff.
Israel and Russia have deeply differ-
ing approaches to Iran’s nuclear pro-
gram and the uprising in Tehran’s close
ally Syria. Russia has blocked drastic
action against the two countries, while
Israel has repeatedly hinted it may act
militarily to stop Iran’s nuclear pro-
gram.
HARRISBURG
Rendell speaks for Stetler
Former Gov. Ed Rendell testified
Monday that Stephen Stetler, his one-
time revenue secretary who is on trial
for campaign malfeasance, has a repu-
tation “as good as anyone could ever
hope to have.”
Rendell, a Democrat whose two
terms as governor ended in January
2011, was the first character witness on
the fifth day of Stetler’s trial in Dau-
phin County court. He noted the sever-
al dozen people who nearly filled the
seats on Stetler’s side of the courtroom
as a reflection of strong community
support for him.
Stetler, 62, served as a state repre-
sentative from York County for 16
years. The corruption charges against
him involve the period between 2004
and 2006, when he was chairman of
both the House Democratic Policy
Committee and the House Democratic
Campaign Committee.
He has pleaded not guilty to four
counts of theft and one count each of
conspiracy and conflict of interest.
LOS ANGELES
Jackson doc has regrets
On the third anniversary Monday of
Michael Jackson’s death, Dr. Conrad
Murray, who is serving four years in jail
for his role in the singer’s death, wishes
he had testified during his trial, his
appeals attorney said.
Jackson’s personal physician has
spent seven months in the Los Angeles
County jail since his involuntary man-
slaughter conviction last November.
As Jackson stopped breathing and
suffered cardiac arrest under the influ-
ence of the surgical anesthetic propo-
fol, jurors were told, Murray chatted on
the phone and sent and received email
and text messages.
He also delayed calling for help and
lied to paramedics and emergency
doctors, witnesses said.

murder to be sentenced to life in pris-

then 14-year-old boys.
CAIRO — The new Egyptian presi-
dent Mohammed Morsi moved first
thing Monday morning into the office
once occupied by his ousted predeces-
sor Hosni Mubarak and started work on
forming a government even before he
had a clear picture of what he could do
after the ruling military stripped most
of the major powers from his post.
The country breathed a sigh of relief
that at least thequestionof whowonthe
presidential runoff had been resolved
on Sunday after the first free and fair
elections in Egypt’s modern history.
People returned to work a day after a
panic that sent many home early for fear
that violence might erupt whenthe win-
ner was announced. Traffic was flowing
againthroughCairo’s Tahrir Square, the
birthplace of last year’s uprising and a
major intersection that had been
blocked for nearly a week by Morsi sup-
porters protesting against the military’s
power grab.
Egypt’s benchmark stock index
closed with record gains of 7.5 percent
in a sign of optimism after a president
was named. And newspapers were
brimmingwithupbeat headlines, after a
week of rumors and scaremongering.
“Morsi president on orders from the
people: The revolutionreaches the pres-
idential palace,” said a banner headline
in independent daily Al-Shorouk.
“His priority is the stability on the po-
litical scene,” said Yasser Ali, a spokes-
man for Morsi who said the president
was in his office to consult on forming a
new government and choosing his
team.
Morsi, from the fundamentalist Mus-
lim Brotherhood group, is the first Isla-
mist president of Egypt. He defeated
Mubarak’s last prime minister, Ahmed
Shafiq, in a tight race that deeply polar-
ized the nation.
Now he faces a daunting struggle for
power with the still-dominant military
rulers who took over after Mubarak’s
ouster in the uprising.
The 60-year-old, U.S.-trained engi-
neer comes into office knowing little
about his authorities and what he can
do to resolve security and economic cri-
ses and meet the high expectations for
the country’s first popularly elected
leader.
The contours were emerging of a
backroom deal between the military
and the Brotherhood that led to the rul-
ing military council blessing Morsi as
president. One mediator said negotia-
tions are still under way to hammer out
political understandings.
State TV showed footage of Morsi
meeting Monday with the ruling mili-
tary council headed by Field Marshal
Hussein Tantawi, who was Mubarak’s
defense minister for 20 years. The TV
quoted Tantawi as saying the military
will “stand by the elected, legitimate
president and will cooperate with him
for the stability of the country.”
Morsi also met with the military-
backed Prime Minister Kamal el-Gan-
zouri, who resigned Monday and was
asked to head a caretaker government
until Morsi nominates a new one.
EmadAbdel-Ghaffour, the headof the
ultraconservative Islamist party Al-
Nour, saidinthe weekbetweenthe June
16-17 presidential runoff and the an-
nouncement of the winner on Sunday,
many politicians tried to mediate be-
tween the Islamists and the generals to
defuse a political crisis.

BEIRUT — A Syrian general
was among the latest defectors
from the Syrian military, offi-
cials said Monday, after dozens
of Syrian soldiers fled overnight
to Turkey, crossing the border
with their families.
The general defectedinrecent
days, Turkish officials said.
Then, according to the state-run
Anadolu news agency, 33 sol-
diers crossed the border over-
night, including a second gener-
al and two colonels.
But a Turkish government of-
ficial, who spoke on condition of
anonymity in line with govern-
ment rules, said the group in-
cluded three colonels, and there
was no general.
The two accounts could not
immediately be reconciled.
Thousands of soldiers have
abandoned the Syrian regime,
but most are low-level con-
scripts. Therebel FreeSyrianAr-
my — which is based in Turkey
— is made up largely of defec-
tors.
Anadolu said a total of 224
people crossed into Turkey over-
night, the latest blow to Syrian
President Bashar Assad’s re-
gime.
The officer who defected sep-
arately in the last fewdays was a
brigadier general, Turkish offi-
cials said. In January, a brigadier
general appeared in Turkey, the
highest ranking officer to defect
up to that point.
Activists say more than14,000
peoplehavebeenkilledsincethe
uprising began in March 2011,
and the toll mounts every day.
There are widespread fears
that the conflict could spark re-
gional unrest — and those fears
mounted Friday when Syrian
forces shot a Turkish military
plane out of the sky.
Syria insists that the Turkish
plane violated its air space. But
Turkey disagrees, saying that
though the plane had uninten-
tionally strayed into Syria’s air
space, it was inside international
airspace when it was downed.
In recent days, both sides ap-
peared to be trying to calm ten-
sions over the incident.
Syria’s Foreign Ministry
spokesman said Monday his
country has “no hostility” to-
ward Turkey.
“We behaved in a defensive
and sovereign way,” Jihad Mak-
dissi said in the Syrian capital.
He said the search was still un-
der way for two missing Turkish
airmen who were on the plane.
Ankara has calleda meetingof
NATO’s governing body on
Tuesday to discuss the incident.
Allies can request such consulta-
tions if they feel their territorial
integrity or security are threat-
ened.

TAMPA, Fla. —Tropical StormDebby
drenched Florida with heavy rains, flood-
ed low-lying neighborhoods and knocked
out power to thousands of homes and
businesses as it lingered off the state’s
coast Monday.
The governor declared a statewide
emergency, and a tropical stormwarning
was in effect for most of Florida’s Gulf
coast. At least one person was killed by a
twister in Florida, and crews in Alabama
searched for a man who disappeared in
rough surf Sunday.
In St. Pete Beach on Florida’s Gulf
coast, atornadorippedtheroof off amari-
na and an apartment complex, and felled
fences, trees and signs.
Kourosh Bakhtiarian’s yard was flood-
ed. He saidpeople were drivingaroundto
survey the area, and he was upset police
hadn’t closed off the neighborhood
streets.
“We have a lot of visitors from outside
of this area. They just want to see exactly
where the disaster is. I mean, this is not
the happiest time. Usually people come
to the beach when it’s sunny and nice and
theycangotoget a tan. But today, we saw
a lot of visitors here.”
State officials estimated at least 35,000
homes andbusinesses were without pow-
er, including Bakhtiarian’s home.
The stormclosed the sole bridge to St.
George Island, a popular vacation island
in Florida. Power was already out on the
island and authorities said it could be for
days.
“The tourists cleared out. It’s not a
goodthingandhurts theeconomyduring
a week in peak season,” said Patrick
Sparks, 26, a manager at Eddy Teach’s
bar. “It’s a tropical storm—it’s not even a
category one (hurricane). It’s a little rash
to send everyone home.”
Residents in several counties near the
crook of Florida’s elbow were urged to
leave low-lying neighborhoods because
of the threat of flooding. Shelters were
opened in some areas.
High winds forced the closure of an in-
terstate bridge that spans Tampa Bay and
links St. Petersburg with areas to the
southeast. In several locations, homes
and businesses were damaged by high
winds authorities believe were from tor-
nadoes.
The constant barrage of wind and rain
triggered fears of the widespread flood-
ing that occurred across the Florida Pan-
handle during Hurricane Dennis in 2005.
The forecast map indicated the storm
would crawl northeast, eventually com-
ing ashore in Florida later this week.
However, a storm’s path is difficult to dis-
cern days in advance.
Underscoringthe unpredictable nature
of tropical storms, forecasters at one
point thought Debby wouldheadwest to-
ward Texas.
“There are always going to be errors in
making predictions. There is never going
to be a perfect forecast,” said Chris Land-
sea, a meteorologist at the National Hur-
ricane Center.
The storm is moving slowly, allowing
its clouds more time to unload rain. A
public advisory said parts of northern
Florida could get 10 to 15 inches of rain,
with some areas getting as much as 25
inches.

SANANTONIO—Froma chapel pulp-
it on Lackland Air Force Base, where ev-
ery American airman reports for basic
training, Col. Glenn Palmer delivered his
first order to nearly 600 recruits seated in
the pews: If you’re sexually harassed or
assaulted, tell someone.
“My job is to give you a safe, effective
training environment,” Palmer said firm-
ly.
What the colonel did not mention di-
rectly was a widening sex scandal that
has rocked the base, one of the nation’s
busiest military training centers. Allega-
tions that male instructors had sex with,
and in one case raped, female trainees
have led to criminal charges against four
men. Charges against others are possible.
The most serious accusations sur-
round an Air Force staff sergeant sched-
uled to face a court-martial in July on
charges that include rape and multiple
counts of aggravated sexual assault. The
other three defendants were charged
with lesser crimes ranging from sexual
misconduct to adultery. All of the defend-
ants wereassignedtoturnrawrecruits in-
toairmenineight weeks of basic training.
Atwo-star general is nowinvestigating
alongside a separate criminal probe,
which military prosecutors say could
sweep up more airmen. Advocates for fe-
male service members and members of
Congress have started taking notice.
“It’s a pretty bigscandal the Air Force is
having to deal with at this point,” said
GregJacob, a former Marine infantry offi-
cer and policy director of the Service
Women’s Action Network. “It’s pretty
substantial in its scope.”
Yet there are signs the Air Force still
doesn’t have a handle on the full depth of
the problem. Staff Sgt. Peter Vega-Maldo-
nado pleaded guilty earlier this month to
having sex with a female trainee and
struck a plea deal for 90 days’ confine-
ment. Then he acknowledged being in-
volved with a total of 10 trainees — a
number previously unknown to investi-
gators.
On Friday, after months of embarrass-
ing disclosures, the head of the Air
Force’s training command ordered Maj.
Gen. Margaret H. Woodward to lead an
independent investigation. That same
day, the Air Force gave reporters rare ac-
cess to Lackland’s instructional head-
quarters in an effort to show there was
nothing to hide.
The headquarters facility is where
Lackland trains the people who train
recruits.

WILKES-BARRE–Acity man
who prosecutors say acted as
the “top of the pyramid” in a
$3.5 million cocaine distribu-
tion ring pleaded guilty Monday
to related charges and was sen-
tenced to 7 ½to15 years in state
prison.
Ronald Molnar, 40, of Joseph
Lane, pleaded guilty to charges
of corrupt organization, crimi-
nal conspiracy, possession with
intent to deliver, criminal use of
a communication facility and
three counts of delivery of a con-
trolled substance.
Molnar’s attorney, Nanda Pal-
issery, asked that his client re-
main free on bail until after Mol-
nar undergoes surgery on his
hand in July, to allow him time
to attend rehabilitation. Molnar
hadbeeninjuredina motorcycle
accident on June 2, is wheel-
chair-bound and has received
several surgeries since then.
County Judge David Lupas
said he did not want to delay the
case any more since it hadbegun
in 2008, and Molnar previously
pleaded guilty in April 2010 but
withdrew his guilty plea nearly
two years later.
“This case has dragged on. He
needs to serve his sentence,” Lu-
pas said.
Lupas said he wants to see
documentation from Molnar’s
doctor outlining the surgery and
rehabilitation time by Friday,
and that he would set a date for
Molnar to report to prison to be-
ginserving his sentence at a July
3 hearing.
Molnar said Monday his ar-
rest andcharges have beena bur-
den on himself, his family and,
most likely, the court system.
“I just want to put this behind
me,” Molnar said. “I want to try
to move on with my life.”
Prosecutors say Molnar par-
ticipated in the drug ring oper-
ated by members of the Outlaws
Motorcycle Club, which distrib-
uted cocaine throughout the ar-
ea beginning in July 2008.
More than a dozen Outlaws
members were charges with dis-
tributing hundreds of packages
of cocaine. Other members of
the Outlaws have pleaded guilty
to related charges and all have
been sentenced.
W-B pleads guilty to role in a cocaine ring
Ronald Molnar, 40, pleaded to
various charges related to
$3.5 million drug operation.

WILKES-BARRE– City police
and the Luzerne County District
Attorney’s Office will attempt
again to prosecute a man ac-
cused of slashing an ex-girl-
friend’s throat.
Zackory C. Yashkus, 18, of
Page Avenue, Kingston, was ar-
raigned Monday by District
Judge Rick Cronauer on two
counts of aggravated assault and
one count each of simple assault
and reckless endangerment. He
was released on $10,000 unse-
cured bail.
Police allege Yashkus pushed
his way into a Lynch Street resi-
dence and slashed the girl’s
throat with a knife on Feb. 19.
The girl, 17, ended their relation-
ship on Valentine’s Day, a week
before the alleged assault.
The girl survived her injuries
and underwent surgery at
Wilkes-Barre General Hospital.
It is the second time police
have charged Yashkus.
The initial case was dismissed
March 23 when the girl refused
to testify against Yashkus at a
preliminary hearing in Wilkes-
Barre Central Court.
Without the girl’s testimony to
corroborate the alleged assault,
a district judge dismissed the
case against Yashkus.
Yashkus’ attorney, Joseph
Sklarosky Sr., said during Mon-
day’s hearing he believed police
and prosecutors do not have a
witness, a reference that the girl
is not going to testify.

D-Scranton, said Congress last
week agreed to legislation that
adds26syntheticsubstancestothe
federal Controlled Substance Act,
whichwouldmake synthetic mari-
juana andbathsalts illegal.
The measure also doubles the
length of time the Drug Enforce-
ment Administrationcantempora-
rily ban substances to allow a per-
manent bantotake effect.
“For Pennsylvania communities
thathavefacedviolenceandcrimes
as a result of synthetic drugs like
bath salts, this agreement is very
welcome news,” Casey said in a
news release. “I pushed legislation
to get these substances off our
streets and prevent the horrible
acts of violence synthetic drugs in-
duce, so it is a relief that a ban ap-
pears to finally be close to becom-
inglaw.”
When chemicals used to make
synthetic marijuana change, the
DEA can seek a two-year ban on
newsubstances insteadof a year.
“All that needs to be done is
change the compounds and mole-
cules, andthis stuff is legal,” adrug
agentsaid. “It’snotlikecocaineand
heroin. It doesn’t have to be a dras-
tic change, just a small percentage
changetothecompoundsandmol-
ecules.”
The other drug agent said there
are hundreds of street names for
synthetic drugs but expressed spe-
cial concernabout Scooby Snax.
“Put a cartoon character on the
pouch and of course the younger
kidsaregoingtogoforit,”theagent
said. “It could be Scooby or Straw-
berry Shortcake, it wouldn’t mat-
ter, (synthetic) makers are target-
ingthis spice for the kids.”

PLYMOUTH – Two people
who were scared away by an
alarm at a Main Street business
early Monday morning told po-
lice they had intended to break in
and steal synthetic marijuana.
Police allege Patrick O’Gor-
man, 20, of Carol Street, Hunlock
Township, acted as a lookout af-
ter another man who has not
been charged used a rock to
smash a window at Matus News-
stand at about 4:30 a.m.
O’Gorman ran away when the
burglar alarm went off. He was
apprehended a short distance
away when police stopped a vehi-
cle allegedly driven by Heather
Marie Walton, 23, of New Street,
Plymouth.
O’Gorman and Walton were ar-
raigned by District Judge David
Barilla in Swoyersville on a
charge of criminal conspiracy to
commit burglary. O’Gorman was
also charged with criminal at-
tempt to commit burglary.
According to the criminal com-
plaints:
Police investigated a burglar
alarm at Matus’ Newsstand and
found a smashed glass door. A
witness told police a man ran
from the business and got into a
nearby vehicle. Police allege Wal-
ton was driving the vehicle occu-
pied by O’Gorman and a 12-year-
old boy.
O’Gorman allegedly told po-
lice he plannedwithanother man
toburglarize the business tosteal
synthetic marijuana. He claimed
he got scared and ran when the
other man threw a rock that
smashed the glass door, the com-
plaint says.
Walton claimed she was given
$5 for gasoline for her vehicle by
O’Gorman and the other man for
a ride to the business. When she
heard the alarm, she returned to
the front of the business and
picked up O’Gorman.
Preliminary hearings are
scheduled on July 3 before Dis-
trict Judge Donald Whittaker in
Nanticoke.
O’Gorman and Walton were
jailed at the Luzerne County Cor-
rectional Facility for lack of
$10,000 bail each.

WILKES-BARRE – A Long
Pond man who pleaded guilty
last monthtoa charge relatingto
the sexual assault of a young girl
withdrew his plea Monday and
will now face a trial.
Clark Martin Kitchell, 29, pre-
viously pleaded guilty to a
charge of involuntary deviate
sexual intercourse with a child
stemmingfromthe reportedsex-
ual assault in White Haven of a
7-year-old girl in 2011.
Kitchell onMondayaskedthat
he be permitted to withdraw his
plea and stand trial on the
charge.
County Judge Tina Polachek
Gartley grantedthat request and
scheduleda trial date for Oct. 15.
Kitchell is represented by attor-
ney Andrew Katsock. Assistant
District Attorney Jenny Roberts
is prosecuting the case.
Polachek Gartley said a pre-
trial hearing will be held on
Sept. 14.
According to court papers, on
March 3, 2011, the mother of a 7-
year-old girl reported her daugh-
ter had been sexually abused by
Kitchell, who was known to her.
The girl told her mother
Kitchell had touched her inap-
propriately when her brothers
were not in the same room and
her mother was at work.
The girl said Kitchell would
lock her in a bedroom as “puni-
shment.”
When questioned by investi-
gators, the girl said she wasn’t
sure how many times Kitchell
sexually assaultedher, but that it
hurt and she would cry.
The girl said Kitchell would
give her a snack afterward to
“make her feel better.”
Abrother of the girl toldinves-
tigators that she and Kitchell
would play boyfriend and girl-
friend and that he would see
them kiss.
Man accused of sexual assault of child to face trial

WILKES-BARRE– AHazle-
ton woman accused of violent-
ly shaking and injuring her 5-
month-old son will stand trial
on three related charges in Au-
gust, a county judge said Mon-
day.
Judge David Lupas ordered
the trial of Andrea Vargas, 24,
to begin Aug. 27 on charges of
aggravated assault, child en-
dangerment and a misde-
meanor count of reckless en-
dangerment in the February
2011 incident in which prose-
cutors alleged she shook the
boy so violently the child re-
quired a respirator to help him
breathe.
Vargas’ attorney, William
Watt, said he has not yet re-
ceivedall court papers relating
to the case and asked for a trial
date.
Assistant District Attorney
Jarrett Ferentino said the trial
will likely last about three days.
A doctor testified at a May
2011 preliminary hearing that
the childmay never fully recover
fromhis injuries. Hesaidthat, af-
ter an examination, he discov-
ered previous injuries such as
fracturedribs, legs andarms that
were in the process of healing.
“He was broken from head to
toe,” Ferentino previously said.
Ferentino said Monday the
child, now around 21 months
old, remains in very serious con-
dition, and his condition has not
changed since February 2011.
Vargas initially told investiga-
tors the infant’s bruises and bone
fractures were caused by her 1-
year-old daughter tossing a met-
al toycar intothe cribandhitting
the baby.
She allegedly confessed to
county Detective Lt. Gary Capi-
tanowhenconfrontedwithother
injuries found by the doctor that
she violently shook the baby.
Capitano testified at the pre-
liminary hearing that Vargas
said she was watching a basket-
ball game on TV with the child’s
biological father, Jorge Robles,
on Feb. 3.
During halftime, Vargas said,
her infant begancryingandvom-
ited. Robles came into the room
andtookholdof theinfant as Var-
gas went intoa bathroom. She al-
leged her infant stopped breath-
ing and Robles performed CPR
as she dialed 911.

WILKES-BARRE – A Hazle-
ton man convicted of first-de-
gree murder and sentenced to
life in prison on the January
2011 beating and stabbing death
of another man has appealed his
conviction to the state Superior
Court.
Rodolfo Hiraldo Perez, 25,
who was sentenced last month
in the January 2011 death of
21-year-old Vladimir Ruiz, filed
the appeal Monday through his
attorney, John Pike.
Perez was convicted of the
charge in March after a jury
trial.
Prosecutors say Perez and
Angel Sanchez, 21, were respon-
sible for the killing. Sanchez
pleaded guilty to a third-degree
murder charge and was sen-
tenced earlier this month to 17
to 34 years in prison.

rived home and called her, tell-
ing the girl’s mother he was stop-
ping by to drop off her belong-

HANOVER TWP. – An unsea-
sonably mild winter, coupled
with an early spring, is being
blamed for a decrease in blood
donations this year to the local
chapter of the American Red
Cross and nationally.
The American Red Cross
blood supply has reached emer-
gency levels with 50,000 fewer
donations than expected in June
across the nation. This shortfall
leaves the Red Cross with half as
many readily available blood
products on hand as at this time
last year.
Locally, The Northeastern
Pennsylvania Region of the Red
Cross is down about 10 percent
compared to last year, according
to spokesman Shannon Ludwig.
“Many regular donors got an
early start on summer activities
and aren’t taking time to give
bloodor platelets,” the RedCross
saidina release. “Inaddition, this
year’s mid-week Independence
Day holiday has reduced the
number of scheduled Red Cross
blood drives. Many sponsors, es-
pecially businesses, are unable to
host drives because employees
are taking extended vacations.”
The Northeastern Pennsylva-
nia Region of the Red Cross has
set a goal of collecting more than
1,800 units of blood over the next
two weeks. All blood types are
needed, but O-positive, O-nega-
tive, B-negative and A-negative
are especially sought in order to
meet patient demand this sum-
mer.
Toreachits goal, the RedCross
is addingemergencyblooddrives
and extending drive hours. In ad-
dition, the Red Cross is reaching
out to eligible blood donors,
blood drive sponsors and com-
munity leaders to ask them to
recruit blood donors.
Ludwig said blood supplies
typically dwindle in the summer
as college students, which ac-
count for 20 percent of donors,
aren’t at school and many other
donors are on vacation.
“We always struggle duringthe
summer,” Ludwig noted. But the
problem this year is that dona-
tions in the typically strong Janu-
ary through June period are
down. Those donations help to
build reserves to get through the
summer months.
“Our drives have remained
pretty constant, but the number
of donors are down,” Ludwig
said.
The call for help comes the
same week a Geisinger Health
System blood center opens its
doors.
Red Cross blood shortages
were cited by Geisinger when it
announced last year that it would
contract with a private company
to provide blood and platelets at
its facilities including Geisinger
Wyoming Valley. The partner-
shipmeans Geisinger HealthSys-
tem no longer depends on the
Red Cross for its blood products.
Danville-based Geisinger be-
gan transitioning its donor ser-
vices earlier this year to The In-
stitute for Transfusion Medicine,
known as ITxM, a Pittsburgh-
basedcompany. ITxMbegansup-
plying 100 percent of Geisinger’s
blood products on Jan. 9, though
Red Cross blood collections con-
tinuedat Geisinger facilities until
the spring. In the future Geisin-
ger employees and patients will
beurgedtogivebloodat theGeis-
inger blood center and at Geisin-
ger-organized blood drives.
Ludwig did not comment on
what, if any, impact Geisinger’s
decision will have on future
blood supplies. Neither did Matt
Van Stone, a spokesman for Geis-
inger.
The new Geisinger/ITxM
blood center will open Wednes-
day in the CenterPoint Com-
merce & Trade Park.
Blood supply critically low
The Red Cross is making an
extra effort to combat the
dangerous shortage.
By ANDREWM. SEDER
aseder@timesleader.com
AIMEE DILGER/THE TIMES LEADER
The Red Cross blood supply is 50 percent of what it was last year at this time due to lack of donors. The Red Cross is looking to hold
more blood drives in an attempt to build up its stock.

UPCOMING BLOOD DRIVES
WILKES-BARRE TWP.
— The Wilkes-Barre Town-
ship Council passed two or-
dinances in a special ses-
sion on Monday night.
The first ordinance
passed brings the township
into compliance with the
wastewater requirements
of the Wyoming Valley San-
itary Authority. The second
establishes a compulsory
fire escrow fund.
This fund will allow the
township to recover the
cost of repair or demolition
of a property from fire in-
surance claim money re-
ceived by the property
owner.
Both ordinances passed
unanimously with council
member John Jablowski be-
ing absent.
In the regular work ses-
sion that followed the spe-
cial session, Township Ad-
ministrator Michael Revitt
said a sign notifying of a
ban on bicycles will be put
up at the Ash Street Play-
ground. However, smaller
children with tricycles may
ride them in the park.
Revitt has also asked
township Solicitor Bruce
Phillips to prepare a re-
vised grease trap ordinance
that will include residen-
tial areas and establish
fines.
“It is very expensive to
have sewerage blockage re-
moved,” Revitt said.
Revitt said the Wyoming
Valley Sanitary Authority
had been checking the
traps but stopped at some
point. He said that, from
now on, the township’s re-
cycling officer will check
the traps monthly and will
issue fines.

Times Leader Correspondent
said the majority of those who
use the facilities cause no prob-
lems.
“Certainly a sportsman would
never do this,” he said. “Four
years ago this site was nothing
but dirt and the PGC realized
the value the range is to sports-
men and sports shooters. I am
hopeful the PGCgets the person
who did this gross activity and
prosecutes to the fullest extent
of the law.”
Kapral said the range is used
frequently, and the problems
with vandalism have occurred
before.
“All the ranges get hit with
vandalismbecause they’re locat-
ed in remote areas. There’s bul-
let holes in the roof, the sup-
ports – anything they can shoot
they do,” he said. “But the graffi-
ti, while it’s cosmetic, the nature
of it goes above and beyond
that.”
Commission information and
education supervisor for the
Northeast Region Bill Williams
said the agency doesn’t have any
suspects in the latest act of van-
dalism. He said it was reported
to the agency on Tuesday morn-
ing, meaning the vandals struck
some time after Kapral’s visit at
1 p.m. the day before.
The range will remain open
and the commission’s Food and
Cover personnel will repair the
damage. Kapral said some of the
shooting bench tops may need
to be replaced because they
have been marked with graffiti
before.
“The last time they sprayed
the table tops we just turned
them over, but we can’t do that
now,” he said. “To have our
Food and Cover guys repair this,
that will take time away from
wildlife habitat work that they
normally do.”
Two years ago, the agency im-
plemented a new policy that all
users of its shooting ranges
must possess a valid hunting li-
cense, which costs $20.70 for a
resident adult, or a range-use
permit for $30. Since then, Ka-
pral said, vandalism at the rang-
es has decreased some, but the
problem obviously persists.
“The Game Commission is
providing a safe place for those
who want to target shoot or
sight in their rifles, and a few
knuckleheads do something like
this and ruin it for everybody,”
he said. “I don’t understand it.
If those responsible are
caught, Kapral said they could
face fines between $100 and
$200 for each count, in addition
to restitution for the cost of re-
pairs. In addition to routine
checks by WCOs, the Game
Commission does conduct ran-
dom surveillance at all its rang-
es.
“If anyone is caught damaging
the ranges or any other Game
Commission property, they will
be taken to the local magistrate
and the penalties could be pret-
ty steep,” Kapral said.
To report any information
about the vandalism on the SGL
91 range, call the PGC’s North-
east Region Office at 675-1143.

NUANGOLA — The sewer
authority made it official
Monday night that Environ-
mental One Pumps of Niskay-
una, N.Y., has been approved
for a procurement contract
for grinder pumps for a sew-
age collection system that is
targeted to begin this sum-
mer.
Quad 3 Group of Wilkes-
Barre found the bid of
$961,592 to comply with
specifications according to
information forwarded to au-
thority Chairman David Pe-
kar by Rich Kresge, project
engineer for Quad 3. The au-
thority members voted unan-
imously to accept Kresge’s
recommendation.
The authority, however, ex-
tended for 30 days the official
awarding of construction
contracts to Wexcon Inc. of
Mooresville and Doli Con-
struction of Chalfont. A reso-
lution was passed for the au-
thority to issue a letter of in-
tent in favor of Wexcon and
Doli, but an official vote has
been postponed to July 26.
On April 26, Wexcon sub-
mitted a contract proposal
of $4,464,275 and Doli,
$1,137,841, for two phases of
work on a pipeline that will
connect Nuangola with the
Mountain Top Area Joint
Sanitary Authority treat-
ment plant in Dorrance
Township.
Pekar and solicitor Bob Go-
nos said paperwork on a loan
guarantee from the U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture for
$9,342,700 is in the prepara-
tion process. The loan is
more than $2 million more
than the $6,958,600 sought at
the inception of the project in
2007.
Tom Williams, a Nuangola
resident who serves as the
state director of the USDA in
Harrisburg, said the pro-
posed increase in funding is
generally regarded as normal
by USDA officials, given cost
escalations and legal process-
es that go into projects of this
nature.
Because of his association
with the federal agency, Wil-
liams has generally been
credited with assisting the
borough in obtaining fund-
ing. Williams, however,
called his involvement ”noth-
ing special.”
Another part of the finan-
cial process is that Nuangola
is negotiating with Fulton
Bank of Lancaster for a simi-
lar amount of money to pro-
vide the authority gap financ-
ing to meet its contractual
obligations through the ac-
tual construction phases. Go-
nos said both an audit report
from Lawrence Cable and Co.
of Wilkes-Barre and a letter
of conditions have been for-
warded to Fulton in accord-
ance with legal procedure
that leads up to a loan clos-
ing.
Discussions also centered
on a recent meeting with Joe
Gibbons, chief engineer for
Luzerne County, who has re-
vised his demands with re-
gard to Blytheburn Road to
include a seven-year bond
and repair of shoulders and
swales at a cost Pekar esti-
mated at $185,000.

HAZLETON – A city
man was arrested on Mon-
day after allegedly threat-
ening to kill his siblings,
pointing a gun at one of
them.
City police say Daniel
Stiegelbauer, 24, was taken
into custody without in-
cident after a domestic
dispute on North Locust
Street in which he alleged-
ly pointed a handgun at
his brother, Michael, and
threatened to kill him and
his sister, Claudia Stiegel-
bauer.
Stiegelbauer was charged
with two felony counts of
aggravated assault. He was
also charged with four
counts of simple assault,
two counts of recklessly
endangering another per-
son and two counts of ter-
roristic threats, all misde-
meanors, police said.
Stiegelbauer was taken
to Luzerne County Cor-
rectional Facility for
overnight arraignment,
police said.

“Our prosecution team will ask
the judge to fashion a sentence
that reflects the horrific acts Mr.
Sandusky committed …”
Linda Kelly
Pennsylvania’s attorney general told NBC’s “Today” show that the
prison sentence for former Penn State University assistant football
coach Jerry Sandusky should take into account he represents a “a clear
and present danger to the community.” The convicted pedophile might
not learn his punishment for months.
City resident shudders
at idea of taking stroll
T
his is in response to J.W. Davies’ com-
ment in a letter to the editor (June 10)
suggesting that people walk around
their Wilkes-Barre neighborhoods.
Seriously? I am afraid to walk from the
car to the house, especially at night.
Before I could think about walking
around the neighborhood, I would have to
secure all my ground-floor windows and
doors, make sure the surveillance cameras
were on and the alarm system (which I
paid for myself) was set. I would have to
remove all jewelry and leave my purse
hidden at home. I also would make sure
my sidearm was loaded or, at the very
least, I had Mace.
And then, maybe, if it was daylight, I
could set out for a walk around my neigh-
borhood.

PennDOT partnerships
a poor idea for citizens
T
oday would be a good day to let your
state senator, your representative and
your governor know that you oppose
House Bill 3, a bill to allow public-private
partnerships with the Pennsylvania De-
partment of Transportation.
Public-private partnerships are govern-
ment-sanctioned monopolies because they
create an elite of specially chosen busi-
nesses that are granted non-compete claus-
es and “comprehensive development
agreements” to guarantee profits. That is
not free enterprise. It’s also not good for
you and me.
Tolls on “free” highways and higher road
taxes will be the result of HB 3, while rich,
connected cronies get richer.
There is more than enough money for
highways right now, if only the Legislature
would stop diverting the funds to non-
highway projects such as parks and mu-
seums.
Help yourself. Stop the fleecing. Write,
call, email and fax your public servants to
vote no on HB 3.

Passenger rail can run
better on private track
I
love trains. As a wheelchair user, I great-
ly appreciate not having to risk airline
crews dropping my sole means of mobil-
ity while hoisting it onto an airplane. And,
like The Times Leader’s Mark Guydish
writes (“Romney should talk to the real
people who use Amtrak,” June 19), I, too,
have met some really cool and nice people
on trains – folks who like scenery, breath-
ing space and the awesome rush you get
from zipping through town and country
alike.
But that does not mean that Amtrak
should be subsidized to the tune of $1.5
billion every year. Amtrak accounts for less
than one-tenth of 1 percent of all passenger
travel in the United States and its fares
average twice the cost of airfares or in-
tercity driving. It is far too expensive and
far too underused.
Subsidies are part of the reason. They
insulate Amtrak from market pressures to
offer better, faster service to more people.
It is possible that American rail will not
survive without government, but I have
more faith in trains than that.
Put locomotive transportation in the free
market, and I believe that its providers will
find ways to attract more customers who
appreciate its beauties and convenience.

Hold our elected officials
to high truth standards
T
here’s been much said about the Su-
preme Court’s decision in Citizens
United. There’s even a push for a con-
stitutional amendment to stop such enor-
mous funding as in super PACs.
But what about political twisting of the
truth, half lies and outright lies by those
attack ads and politicians?
If I tell a lie about you in public, I very
likely will pay dearly for it. But the politic-
ian can tell even bigger lies and just might
get elected for it.
What if we required proof before any
statement could be used in campaigns?
Would that be so bad? Would your delicate
sensibilities be ravaged if politicians and
political ads had to tell the truth?
Now I realize your favorite politician
never lies, so such a rule shouldn’t bother
you. As for me, I would savor and relish
such a delicacy.

Writer: Mundy’s stances
are unsettling to stomach
I
thought I would suffer incontinence
reading state Rep. Phyllis Mundy’s letter
to the editor (June 7) about her opposi-
tion to the voter ID law.
She has been a representative in the
state Legislature for several years and
seemingly has kept quiet about the person-
al ID required by both the Pennsylvania
Fish and Boat Commission and the Penn-
sylvania Game Commission.
It should be noted that she opposed the
“castle doctrine” bill that gave citizens the
right to defend their homes and permitted
them to stand their ground when ap-
proached by intruders. That bill was ve-
toed by then Gov. Ed Rendell and later
signed into law by Gov. Tom Corbett. It
also should be mentioned that she re-
ceived an “F” assessment from the Nation-
al Rifle Association for her anti-gun stand.
It also should be noted that Australia has
suffered one of the highest records of hoo-
dlum attacks since it passed a law prohib-
iting its citizens from owning certain arms.
The criminals kept their guns while the
law-abiding people turned in their weap-
ons, leaving them unarmed in the face of
threats.
As for the voter ID law, I see nothing
wrong with such a law. It simply verifies
that you are who you claim to be when you
exercise one of our most precious free-
doms.
No, Representative Mundy, I do not
subscribe to your opposition to the voter
ID law, and your position on many other
matters.

Cartwright’s letter fails
to spark reader’s trust
I
n his letter to the editor (June 8), 17th
District congressional candidate Matt
Cartwright pleads for the passing of an
infrastructure bill, which he claims is
stalled by Republicans in the House of
Representatives.
The reason for the delay, according to
him, is the GOP wants “controversial con-
cessions.” Said concessions are not elab-
orated on, which to me is telling. They
probably are not as controversial to the
average American as they are to someone
of Cartwright’s status.
The voters gave control of the House to
the GOP in the last federal election in
order to curb spending.
The fact is President Obama had a Con-
gress that was in full control of both
houses and could have passed the same
bill when they had the chance. Instead,
Obama and the Democratic-controlled
Congress used the time, energy and other
precious resources to pass the health care
bill – which is likely to be found unconsti-
tutional – as well as the failed stimulus
package.
Why weren’t the projects in the new
infrastructure bill included in the stimu-
lus? Are they in the same classification of
“shovel-ready jobs” we heard touted as
selling points for that bill? The very same
shovel-ready jobs that President Obama
literally laughed off when asked about
them post-stimulus?
I am a registered independent and have
no fealty to any political party, so I am able
to sit on the sidelines and make up my
mind based on facts, not partisan rhetoric
and talking points. Hence I am wary of a
candidate who is essentially supporting
the same policies and projects that have
proven to be failures by the current admin-
istration.

JURY OF Centre
Countycitizens onFri-
day reached the same
conclusion that much
of America did after hearing
NBC sports analyst Bob Costas’
interview with former Penn
Stateassistant coachJerrySand-
usky in November.
When a 68-year-old man who
has just been charged with sex-
ually abusing 10 young boys
goes on national television, ad-
mits he “horsed around” with
kids, showered with them,
hugged them and touched their
legs, it’s nostretchtodecide that
samemanmeets theclassic defi-
nition of a pedophile.
That is the verdict of a careful
jury that listenedas a sadparade
of young men, all singled out for
victimization by Sandusky, gave
heart-breaking testimony about
how they were wooed and then
abused. The panel found the for-
mer coach and Second Mile so-
cial agency founder guilty on 45
of the 48 counts he faced.
But locking Sandusky away,
first pending sentencing and
then for what should be a long
prisonterm, is not the endof the
child sex abuse scandal that roil-
ed Penn State and toppled its
legendary coach, the late Joe Pa-
terno, and the university’s for-
mer president Graham Spanier.
Earlier this month came re-
ports that high-ranking Penn
Stateofficials hadfailedtonotify
police about a 2001 incident in-
volving Sandusky and a boy in a
universityshowerbecauseit was
“humane” to the former defen-
sive coordinator.
A just verdict was delivered
against Sandusky, but justicehas
not yet been completely served
in this horrendous scandal.

Romney has lately taken a softer tone.
Obama said he was pleased the
court struck down key parts of Arizo-
na’s law but was concerned about
what the high court left intact.
“No American should ever live un-
der a cloud of suspicion just because
of what they look like,” Obama said in
a written statement.
“What this decision makes unmis-
takably clear is that Congress must
act on comprehensive immigration re-
form,” Obama said.
Romney did not immediately com-
ment on the court decision Monday,
but he said, “I believe that each state
has the duty — and the right — to se-
cure our borders and preserve the rule
of law, particularly when the federal
government has failed to meet its re-
sponsibilities.”
In Monday’s decision, the court was
unanimous on allowing the immigra-
tion status check to go forward. The
justices were divided on striking
down the other portions.
Justice Anthony Kennedy said the
law could — and suggested it should
— be read to avoid concerns that sta-
tus checks could lead to prolonged de-
tention.
The court struck down these three
major provisions: requiring all immi-
grants to obtain or carry immigration
registration papers, making it a state
criminal offense for an illegal immi-
grant to seek work or hold a job and
allowing police to arrest suspected il-
legal immigrants without warrants.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said the
ruling marked a victory for people
who believe in the responsibility of
states to defend their residents.
Civil rights groups that separately
challenged the law over concerns that
it would lead to rights abuses said
their lawsuit would go on.
Even with the limitations the high
court put on Arizona, the immigration
status check still is “an invitation to
racial profiling,” said American Civil
Liberties Union lawyer Omar Jadwat.
The Obama administration sued to
block the Arizona law soon after its
enactment two years ago. Federal
courts had refused to let the four key
provisions take effect.
Five states — Alabama, Georgia, In-
diana, South Carolina and Utah —
have adopted variations on Arizona’s
law. Parts of those laws also are on
hold pending the outcome of the Su-
preme Court case.
Chief Justice John Roberts and Jus-
tices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader
Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor joined
all of Kennedy’s opinion.
Justices Antonin Scalia and Clar-
ence Thomas would have allowed all
the challenged provisions to take ef-
fect. Justice Samuel Alito would have
allowed police to arrest undocument-
ed immigrants who seek work, and al-
so make arrests without warrants.
Scalia, in comments from the
bench, caustically described Obama’s
recently announced plans to ease de-
portation rules for some children of il-
legal immigrants.
“The president said at a news con-
ference that the new program is ‘the
right thing to do’ in light of Congress’
failure to pass the administration’s
proposed revision of the Immigration
Act. Perhaps it is, though Arizona may
not think so. But to say, as the court
does, that Arizona contradicts federal
law by enforcing applications of the
Immigration Act that the president
declines to enforce boggles the mind,”
Scalia said.

Volunteers, including Marcos Garcia, left, and Norberto Saenz, field calls from
concerned Hispanics from around Arizona as 23 radio and television stations
statewide air a program, ‘Hoy Somos Arizona,’ reviewing four key provisions of
the impact of SB1070 might have on families and individual’s rights in Phoenix.
The program aired before the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the Arizona im-
migration law.
“I think it surprises some peo-
ple, the length of time it took,”
Corbett said. “But havingbeenan
assistant DA, an assistant U.S. at-
torney and handling cases like
this, I understood that you have
to do a complete investigation
and get as many witnesses as you
possibly can.”
Corbett said the wisdomof the
investigation’s deliberate pace
was evident in the jury’s decisive
verdict on Friday — convicting
Sandusky on all but three counts.
“I think the jury demonstrated
with their convictions on 45 of 48
counts that it was an ironclad
case,” Corbett told CBS’ “This
Morning.”
While defending the slower
pace of the investigation, Corbett
also defended the speed with
whichSandusky’s case went from
grand jury presentment to trial
— seven months. Defense attor-
ney Joe Amendola has said he
and fellow attorney Karl Romin-
ger didn’t have enough time to
prepare their defense and even
asked to withdraw from the case
because they weren’t prepared.
“I’m not surprised that they
would say that,” Corbett said.
“Obviously it will be the sub-
ject of an appeal at some point in
time. ... But in this case the jury
had the opportunity to hear the
compelling testimony of these
nowyoung men who were young
boys who suffered at the hands of
this pedophile.”
The current state attorney gen-
eral, Linda Kelly, told NBC’s “To-
day” show that all parties in-
volved knew the judge intended
to move quickly. She said prose-
cutors supported that decision
because Sandusky was on house
arrest while awaiting trial.
Sandusky, 68, remains behind
bars in the Centre County Cor-
rectional Facility, where he’s
been held since late Friday. It
could be months before he’s sen-
tenced, andhis ownattorneys say
he will likely spend the rest of his
life in prison.
Sandusky’s conviction is only
just the start of possibly years of
legal proceedings over the case.
Besides appeals, there remains
an active investigation into Sand-
usky by the state attorney gener-
al’s office as well as a federal in-
vestigation.
Corbett said Penn State trust-
ees arestill awaitingtheresults of
an internal investigation by for-
mer FBI director Louis Freehinto
the school’s handling of the Sand-
usky case.
Meanwhile, Sandusky lawyer
Rominger said Monday that the
ex-coach wants “people to know
that he’s not guilty.”
Karl Rominger, who helped de-
fend the 68-year-old retired de-
fensive coach, visited him at the
Centre County jail, where he is
being kept under observation
and away from other inmates
pending a psychological review
that will help determine the next
step toward his sentencing,
which is in about three months.
Also Monday, Judge John Cle-
landorderedcountyprobationof-
ficers to evaluate whether Sand-
usky is a sexual predator, a find-
ing that could be a factor in his
prison placement. Such orders
are pro forma in sex abuse cases.
Sex offenders are required to un-
dergo treatment while in prison,
so Sandusky, if deemed a preda-
tor, would likely be sent to a facil-
ity with such a program.

partner and notify the office
within10 days of any change in a
domestic partnership.
Bobeck was not familiar with
the ethics complaint but said re-
consideration of the affidavit is
warranted because employees
weren’t required to provide sim-
ilar disclosure for other rela-
tionships that meet the family
definition, such as parents, sib-
lings and children.
“It’s not uniform in its appli-
cation,” Bobeck said.
Council has the option to can-
cel the affidavit or require dis-
closure of other relationships
under the family definition, he
said.
Heterosexual partners aren’t
included because the domestic
partner definition was meant to
cover the “same-sex equivalent
of a husband or wife,” Bobeck
said.
“This is more analogous to
marriage,” Bobeck said.
Bobeck said the inclusion of
domestic partners in county
policy is not new. The county
personnel policy adopted by for-
mer commissioners in January
2011 contained domestic part-
ner in the definition of immedi-
ate family but did not explain
what that meant, he said.
The affidavit was modeled af-
ter wording in Pennsylvania
government and other govern-
ing bodies that provide health
benefits to same-sex domestic
partners, Bobeck said.
Insurance not offered
The county doesn’t provide
benefits to same-sex domestic
partners and won’t unless coun-
cil publicly unveils, discusses
and votes on such an addition,
officials said at a recent council
meeting.
It’s unclear if any council
members are interested in pro-
posing the idea.
Allegheny County recently
extended health benefits to
same-sex partners of employ-
ees. Pittsburgh, Philadelphia
and Harrisburg also provide the
benefit.
Pennsylvania government
started offering health care cov-
erage to the unmarried partners
of state workers – both same-
sex and heterosexual -- in 2009.
To be covered, state employees
must provide three documents
dating back at least six months
that show proof of their joint re-
lationship, such as a durable
power of attorney assignment
or commingled bank account
records, according to state ad-
ministration office spokesman
Dan Egan.
Bobeck said council has time
to change the administrative
code because it won’t take effect
until July 19.
The code also includes the
following in the definition of
family: spouse, parent, steppa-
rent, child, stepchild, sibling,
step-sibling, brother- or sister-
in-law, cousin, aunt, uncle,
grandchild, grandparent or the
parent or stepparent of a spouse
or domestic partner.

Conduct and Ethics Commis-
sion keeps details about com-
plaints confidential.

PRINGLE – West Side Ca-
reer and Technology Center
Administrative Director
Nancy Tkatch presented “a
year in review” at Monday
night’s Joint Operating Com-
mittee meeting.
She said the recent school
year had provided opportuni-
ty to integrate academic and
technical training so that stu-
dents can maximize their po-
tential.
“We want them to know
why they are learning some-
thing. We want learningtobe
relevant,” said Tkatch, high-
lighting community service
done by center students that
was helpful to the communi-
ty and the students.
She also said many center
students further their educa-
tion after graduation at col-
leges and technical schools.
Superintendent Raymond
Bernardi lauded Tkatch for
structuring quantitative
goals for students that allow
them to measure success.
In another matter, Principal
RichardRava saidthe number
of behavioral infractions by
students during the 2011-2012
school year had declined dra-
matically. He credited the
school’s teachers with com-
mitment and consistency in
maintaining high standards.
Board Vice President John
Gill said the center provided a
great opportunity for students
to prepare themselves for
their futures. Gill said the
school would continue to
adapt to the needs of the stu-
dents and the community.
The committee will next
meet on July 23 at 6 p.m.
Integrating academic and
technical training aids

efore he made an impossibly
long putt for victory, Rick La-
neski received a pep talk from
his playing partner.
It convinced him someone was lend-
ing a hand from above.
Maybe it was beyond belief that the
late Joe “Len” Laneski could influence
his son’s fortunes in the John A. Allan
Tournament over the weekend. But
when his teammate, Brandon Mat-
thews, suggested such a possibility,
Rick Laneski didn’t discount such a
scenario.
“Brandon and I became friends be-
cause of my father,” Laneski said, be-
fore describing the conversation he had
with Matthews before the final shot of
the Allan Tournament’s quarterfinal
round Saturday. “He (Matthews) said,
‘Your dad’s helping put it in the hole.’ ”
Sure enough, Laneski rolled his
14-foot shot down the sloping green on
the ninth and last hole. And when it
fell into the cup, Laneski and Matthews
earned the victory, 1-up, and went on to
win the tournament.
“I had some help on that one,” La-
neski said.
Maybe he needed some assistance
from beyond. Or maybe Laneski’s su-
pernatural shot was simply made by
pure talent.
“Ricky’s a great golfer,” Matthews
said. “He’s no slouch at all.”
But the fact Laneski believed he had
assistance from the heavens may have
given him enough assurance to make
such a shot.
Because the game of golf is all about
confidence.
Develop it, and soon you are spray-
ing the ball from a sand trap to the
edge of the cup.
Lose it and you’ll sink as if you’re
standing in quicksand.
With one supportive statement,
Matthews gave his partner enough
belief to not only survive, but thrive.
“It seems like every time, I bring out
the best in him,” Matthews said. “And
he brings out the best in me.”
As usual, Matthews was the best big
hitter on a course.
The recent Pittston Area graduate
and 2010 PIAA state golf champion
energized the Fox Hill Country Club
with his soaring drives and array of
birdies.
He showed why he is headed to
Temple’s golf team in the fall and why
everyone predicts he’ll be holding a
PGA tour card in his near future.
“It was like playing with Jack Nick-
laus,” Laneski said. “I said, ‘This kid is
going to be winning on the pro tour.’ ”
Laneski?
He was just par for his own club
course.
“I parred the course to death,” La-
neski said. “But that was my job.”
“Ricky,” Matthews said, “is one of
the nicest guys you can ever meet in
the entire world.”
Fox Hill members all say Laneski is a
nice man.
He’s a humble man.
But in one shining moment during
his club’s biggest tournament, he be-
came Superman.
“I would rather that happen for him
than me,” Matthews said.
It nearly happened when Matthews
had the putter, but his own try for a
long birdie came to a sudden stop on
the side of the hole.
It only added to the suspense, and

OMAHA, Neb. — Brandon Dixon’s
tie-breaking double started a three-
run ninth inning for Arizona, and the
Wildcats won their
first national title
since 1986 with a 4-1
victory over two-time
defending champion
South Carolina on
Monday night.
James Farris and
Mathew Troupe com-
bined to limit the
Gamecocks to three
hits as the Wildcats
won their fourth title
overall. The others
came in 1976 and 1980.
Dixon, who entered
the game in the sixth
inning, sent a groun-
der down the third-
base line past LB Dant-
zler for his first hit of
the CWS.
Tyler Webb relieved Matt Price
(5-5), and Trent Gilbert drove in his
second and third runs of the game
with a two-out single that broke open
the game.
South Carolina was trying to be-
come the first team in 40 years to win
three consecutive national titles.
The Gamecocks loaded the bases
against Troupe (6-1) in the ninth but
couldn’t score.

The biggest difference, though, was
the grand prize – the District 16 Little

Nanticoke once
again rallied from an
early and small deficit
against Duryea/Pitt-

Monday.
In little over an hour, Nanticoke won
its second consecutive district cham-

with neighboring Newport Township.
Up next is a trip to the Section 5 play-
offs where Nanticoke will face the D32
champion at 7:30 p.m. on July 3. The
sectionals will be hosted by the D17
champion, either North Pocono or Old
Forge.
The two teams played Thursday,
and DPT took a 2-0 lead after one in-
ning before Nanticoke rallied for a 4-2
victory. DPT again put Nanticoke in a

This past Saturday night at Pocono Downs was just sensational. If
the local Plains Township oval was not considered the fastest five-

world records were broken left and right, with Googoo Gaagaa steal-

breathtaking world and track record mile of 1:50.4. Let’s just hope the
weather holds out for this upcoming Saturday, I’ve got a feeling the
racing may even get more exciting yet.

NEW YORK — Robinson
Cano homered and drove in
three runs to extend his recent
tear, Hiroki Kuroda took a
shutout into the eighth inning
and the New York Yankees beat
the Cleveland Indians 7-1 on
Monday night.
Nick Swisher and Dewayne
Wise also went deep for the
homer-happy Yankees, who
opened a seven-game home-
stand against the top two
teams in the AL Central with
their third consecutive victory
and 13th in 16 games. After
winning an intense Subway
Series across town against the
Mets over the weekend, New
York roughed up Josh Tomlin
(3-5) early and breezed the rest
of the way.
Cano hit a tiebreaking
homer in the eighth inning
Sunday night at Citi Field and
picked up right where he left
off in this one. He smacked a
two-run double in the first
inning and a solo homer in the
third to the short porch in
right.
After a slow start to the
season, Cano has hit six of his
17 homers in the last eight
games. Earlier in the day, the
three-time All-Star moved
ahead of Texas second base-
man Ian Kinsler in fan ballot-
ing for the American League
squad.
Wise added an RBI triple in a
rare start.
Royals 8, Rays 0
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Luke
Hochevar tossed his second
career shutout, Eric Hosmer
homered and Yuniesky Be-
tancourt drove in three runs to
lead Kansas City in a rout of
Tampa Bay.
The mercurial right-hander
struck out eight while walking
only one in his second straight
dominant outing.
Tigers 8, Rangers 2
ARLINGTON, Texas —
Miguel Cabrera drove in three
runs with a pair of doubles,
Rick Porcello struck out seven
in six innings, and Detroit beat
Texas.
After their first 12 batters,
the Tigers had already roughed
up Rangers rookie right-hander
Justin Grimm (1-1) for six runs
and eight hits.
Twins 4, White Sox 1
MINNEAPOLIS — Francisco
Liriano spoiled Kevin Youkilis’
first game with Chicago, throw-
ing a season-high seven innings
to lead Minnesota over the
White Sox.
Youkilis, acquired from Bos-
ton on Sunday, singled in the
eighth inning for his first hit as
Chicago’s new third baseman.

PHILADELPHIA — Joe
Blanton threw seven effective
innings, Jimmy Rollins home-
red for the fourth time in five
games and the Philadelphia
Phillies beat the Pittsburgh
Pirates 8-3 on Monday night.
Blanton (7-6) allowed three
runs — two earned — and
seven hits, striking out eight.
Despite a 4.87 ERA, Blanton
has more wins than Roy Halla-
day (4) and Cliff Lee (0) com-
bined.
Coming off a disappointing
sweep in a day-night double-
header against Tampa Bay, the
last-place Phillies rebounded in
the opener of a four-game se-
ries with Pittsburgh. They are
15-2 against the Pirates in their
last 17 meetings at Citizens
Bank Park.
But these aren’t the same old
Pirates. They entered the game
with the best record in the NL

CHICAGO — The job is his
again, theninthinningoncemore
falling under his jurisdiction.
Bobby Parnell has been named
the Mets’ closer pro tempore, the
mansittingonthebackendof the
seesaw until their $12 million
man – Frank Francisco – is
healthy enough to throw again.
“We just think he’s the best op-
tion right now,” Mets manager
Terry Collins said Monday after-
noon.
For the second straight day,
Collins assured reporters he will
not be taking a mix-and-match
approach to turn off the lights. In
an odd wrinkle, one player in the
locker room was unaware of Par-
nell’s new role.
“Terry hasn’t really told me
that I’m clos-
ing,” Parnell
said. “SoI’mgo-
ing to be ready
seventh, eighth
and ninth.”
After strug-
gling in that
role last season,
is Parnell the right man for that
spot? Or is he simply the only
pitcher Collins can rely on to get
outs?
“I think his confidence is much
better,” Collins said. “I think his
experience doing it already is go-
ing to help himthis year. He’s go-
ing to get that chance.”
Anointed the closer late last
season, Parnell went through a
torturous final month, blowing
four saves in September. In the
off-season, the Mets did not
spend much money, but the cash
they spent went to relievers. Par-
nell was out as closer; Francisco
was in.
As recently as March, Parnell’s
future in the Mets’ bullpen was in
jeopardy, but he made the team
out of spring training. By mid-
May, after 19 appearances, his
ERA had dipped to 2.00.
“I wanted him to have some
confidence,” Collins said. “That’s
why throughout this first half,
when we’ve kind of mixed and
matched who’s going to pitch
where, Bobby was absolutely
dominant in that seventh inning,
where he was coming in and
mowing guys down, so his confi-
dence was high.”
He’s had some hiccups since
those halcyonearly moments. He
facedfour batters without record-
ing an out in a June 10 loss to the
Yankees. He blewa save in Wash-
ington.
“Next thing you know,” Collins
said, “he’s got a blown save next
to his name that perhaps
shouldn’t be there because we
didn’t play very good defense.
And all of a sudden, I think some-
times your confidence can wane
just a little bit. ’Look, I’mnot get-
ting the job done.’ “
Still, Collins is entrusting Par-
nell to play bouncer at the bull-
pen’s back door. Parnell said his
brief tenure last September pre-
paredhimfor this secondchance.
“I kind of have an idea what to
expect.” Parnell said.
Francisco is on the 15-day dis-
abled list with an injured left
oblique.
Until he’s ready to return, Col-
lins hopes Parnell draws on his
2011 tenure as closer.
“He had some ups and he had
some downs,” Collins said. “And
he’s learned how to deal with
them all and he’s actually come
back better. I think this is the
chance to show everybody what
he’s learned.”
Will heprepareanydifferently?
“Same preparation,” Parnell
said.
Is he excited?
“Yeah,” he deadpanned.
More excited than working
random spots in the seventh,
eighth and ninth?
“I’m always excited,” he said.
Injury gives Parnell a second chance as Mets’ closer
A strained oblique landed
Frank Francisco on the DL,
prompting the change.

INDIANAPOLIS — Scranton/
Wilkes-Barre needed just one
more hit. The Yankees had al-
ready racked up nine of them by
the time they
loaded the bases
in the eighth in-
ning, and the
team’s best pow-
er hitters were
coming to bat.
No such luck.
Trailing by a
run, the Yankees
left the bases
loadedinthe top
of the eighth,
squandering
their best
chance to pull
ahead in a fran-
tic 9-8 loss to In-
dianapolis on
Monday night at
Victory Field.
Scranton/
Wilkes-Barre
(41-37) dropped
three of four games in the series.
It was the team’s seventh loss in
eight games.
Down by a run in the eighth,
Chris Dickerson and Corban Jo-
seph reached to lead off the
eighth. Ronnier Mustelier’s sacri-
fice bunt put runners on second
and third for Jack Cust, the
team’s leader in home runs.
But Indianapolis reliever Evan
Meek got him to pop up to short
for the second out and then, with
a base open, opted to intentional-
ly walk veteran slugger Russell
Branyan.
Meekthengot out of thejamby
striking out Francisco Cerevelli.
The Yankees went down in order
in the ninth to end the game.
Branyan had hit a two-run
homer inthesixthtopull theYan-
kees on top 8-7, erasing an early
7-2 deficit. But the Indians an-
swered right back in the home
half, with Starling Marte’s RBI
triple putting Indianapolis (47-
30) back up for good.
Yankees starter Dellin Betanc-
es lasted three innings, walking
four and striking out four. All sev-
en runs against himwere earned.
Michael O’Connor came on in re-
lief and took the loss.
Dickerson, Mustelier and Bra-
nyan each had two hits apiece.
Branyan finished with three RBI
while Mustelier and Colin Curtis
each drove in two.
The Yankees host Gwinnett for
a four-game series that opens at
7:05 tonight in Rochester.

Tenth-inning single
lifts Greater Pittston
The Times Leader staff
vantage in the first.
“Same kind of scenario,” Nan-
ticoke manager Jason Rinker
said. “Even after a walk, the de-
fense pulls together. It’s a com-
plete teameffort. It works out re-
ally well.”
But after Bella Gorzkowski fol-
lowed with a single, Nanticoke
pitcher Jenna Lipowski silenced
DPT’s bats. Gorzkowski’s single
to left in the fourth was the only
other hit allowed by Lipowski.
She pitched perfect innings in
the third, fifth and sixth.
Nanticoke quickly erased the
1-0 deficit in the second inning.
Miranda Dunn walked and
Megan Murphy reached on an
error, both coming with two
outs. Liz Moore followedwithan
infield single that scores both
girls.
Murphy delivered an RBI dou-
ble inthe fourthtomake it 3-1be-
fore Nanticoke scored three
times in the fifth to take a five-
run lead.
Morgan Briggs had the big hit
in the fifth, a seeing-eye single
between short and third to score
Abbie Corcoran and Lipowski.
Helping her own cause, Lipow-
ski hit anRBI single earlier inthe
inning.
“When you’re up 3-1 and you
get those three insurance runs, it
takes a lot of pressure off,” Rink-
er said. “It makes everything a
lot smoother. It’s a world of dif-
ference between 3-1 and 6-1.”
DPT’s Nina Cencetti pitched
well in defeat. She allowed just
four hits and fanned six. But
some costly errors helped Nanti-
coke produce runs.

MIAMI — The NBA cham-
pionship trophy was center
stage, bathed in white light and
sitting on a pedestal. And each
Miami Heat player offered it a
different greeting.
Mike Miller bowed. Udonis
Haslem kissed it three times.
Chris Bosh hugged it, and Le-
Bron James strolled past before
waving at the crowd.
Dwyane Wade did something
different. In a nod to his pre-
ferred postgame fashion style
throughout the playoffs, he
emerged with a pair of faux eye-
glasses and slipped the frames
onto the neck of the trophy. Heat
president Pat Riley, coach Erik
Spoelstra and team managing
general partner Micky Arison all
donned similar pairs of the black
spectacles as well for the party.
The glasses were fake. The
sentiments were all real.
And with that, two years after
Wade, James and Bosh opened
their time together with a cele-
bration, they got the party they
really wanted on Monday. Hun-
dreds of thousands of people fil-
led the streets of Miami for the
Heat championship parade, and
then 15,000 more got into the
arena afterward for a long, loud
reception for the NBA’s new
kings.
“It’s the best feeling I’ve ever
had. ... This was my dream, right
here, to be able to hoist that Lar-
ry O’Brien Trophy up, hug it,
grab it, never want to let it go,”
James said.
During the parade, players and
coaches were on double-decker
buses with friends and family,
most of them taking photos and
video of the crowd. Other Heat
staff were on flatbed trucks, as
confetti fell and horns blared ev-
ery step of the way. Wade cra-
dled the championship trophy in
his arms for much of the ride.
And then the party moved in-
side, with a similar setup to the
event that welcomed James and
Bosh to Miami to play alongside
Wade in July 2010.

NEW YORK — The only
things standing in the way of a
major college football playoff are
12 university presidents.
They figure to be more of a
speed bump than a road block.
The BCS commissioners will
present their four-team playoff
proposal to the presidential over-
sight committee Tuesday in
Washington.
The committee is headed by
Virginia Tech’s Charles W. Steger
and includes one university lead-
er from each of the 11 major foot-
ball conferences, as well as inde-
pendent Notre Dame.
Whether approval will come
quickly or the presidents will
take some time to mull over the
proposal, maybe toss it back for
tweaks, is unknown. The com-
missioners have been careful not
to get too far out in front of the
presidents when publicly talking
about a playoff.
But it is safe to say the men
whohave spent hours uponhours
hashing this out over the last six
months believe their bosses will
approve of their work.
“I’m confident as we brief (the
presidents) over the next weekor
so, give them an understanding
of the evolution of the ideas —
what’s been put off to the side,
why it’s been put off to the side,
how we were able to manage the
things that seemed to be irrecon-
cilable for a long time — that
they will give our advice appro-
priate weight,” Big Ten commis-
sioner Jim Delany said after last
week’s meetings in Chicago.
“Could there be a present with
a bow on it and everything wrap-
ped up (Tuesday)?” Delany said.
“It couldhappen, if you’re real op-
timistic. But I would think we’ll
probably need to spend some
more time together, andprobably
resolve some outstanding is-
sues.”
The Big Ten presidents and
their cohorts in the Pac-12
haven’t been as quick to embrace
the idea of a playoff. A model
called the plus-one, which is basi-
cally the BCS but with participa-
nts for the No. 1 vs. No. 2 cham-
pionship game determined after
the bowls are played instead of
before, was deemed preferable to
a playoff by those leagues.
Nebraska Chancellor Harvey
Perlman, who is a member of the
oversight committee, has said he
still prefers the status quo to a
playoff and that he will need con-
vincingtosignoff onthecommis-
sioners’ plan.
But he alsousually qualifies his
comments on changes to the col-
lege football postseason the way
he did to The Washington Post
last week: “Clearly, that all the
commissioners reached a con-
sensus of some sort is a big step,”
he told the newspaper. “I think
the presidents wouldbe reluctant
to overrule the people that ac-
tually work in the area unless
there was good reason to do so.”
The plan to be presented
would go into effect during the
2014 season. Under the proposal,
national semifinals would be
played on NewYear’s Eve or New
Year’s Day. The sites for those
games will rotate among the four
current BCS games —Rose, Sug-
ar, Orange and Fiesta —and pos-
sibly another bowl or two.
The national championship
game would be played about 10
days later at another neutral site.
The title game site would be bid
on the way the NFL handles
where the Super Bowl is played.
Any city that can pay the multi-
million dollar tab and accommo-
date a huge event could poten-
tially host college football’s
championship game, including
those that don’t currently host
bowl games.

DALLAS — A former Baylor
basketball player is facinga feder-
al extortion charge for allegedly
threatening to release “deroga-
tory informa-
tion” about
Heisman Tro-
phy winner
Robert Griffin
III unless he
was paid.
Richard Kha-
mir Hurd, 25,
was arraigned
Monday in federal court in Waco.
His bond was set at $25,000.
A person familiar with the sit-
uation told The Associated Press
that Griffin, the Baylor quarter-
back who was the No. 2 overall
draft choice of the Washington
Redskins, was the target of the al-
legedextortionattempt. The per-
son spoke on condition of ano-
nymity because authorities had
not disclosed the fact.
Griffin was at an NFL rookie
symposium Monday in Ohio,
where players were not made
available to reporters.
Court documents say that last
week, Hurdcontacteda represen-
tative from a St. Louis agency,
threatening to publicize deroga-
tory information about a client
unless he was paid a “substantial
sum” of money. The representa-
tive is identified in documents
only by the initials B.D.
Griffin’s agent is St. Louis-
based Ben Dogra, who didn’t re-
spond to messages Monday. The
documents don’t name Griffin.
Accordingtocourt documents,
Hurd met at a Waco business Fri-
day with someone who agreed to
handle the transaction. After
signing a non-disclosure agree-
ment, handing over the informa-
tion and receiving a check, Hurd
was arrested by an undercover
FBI agent, documents said.
Wilkerson hurt in crash
NEWARK, N.J. — New Jersey
police say New York Jets defen-
sive linemanMuhammadWilker-
son suffered minor injuries in a
two-car crash early Saturday.
State Police Lt. Stephen Jones
says Wilkersonwas drivinga2011
Dodge Challenger northbound
on the Garden State Parkway in
Kenilworth, UnionCounty. Heat-
tempted to change lanes and
struck the rear left side of a 2011
ToyotaSiennacarrying11people.
Wilkerson’s vehicle flipped
over and came to rest on its roof.
The Jets say Wilkerson re-
ceived stitches in his forearm.
Jones says three people in the
minivan reported pain but de-
clined treatment at the scene.
Police don’t believe alcohol
was involved. Wilkersonwas tick-
eted for careless driving and fail-
ure to maintain his lane.
Steelers release Troy Smith
PITTSBURGH — The Pitts-
burgh Steelers have released vet-
eran quarterback Troy Smith, a
former Ohio State star who won
the 2006 Heisman Trophy.
Smith signed with the Steelers
earlier this year. He has also
spent time in the United Football
League and with the San Francis-
co 49ers (2010) and the Balti-
more Ravens (2007-2009). The
Ravens drafted him in the fifth
round (174th overall) in 2007.

AURORA, Ohio — Flanked by
the shining helmets of all 32 NFL
teams, the head physician for the
Cleveland Browns warned some
of the league’s rookies about the
dangers of concealing head inju-
ries and concussions.
“Don’t try to hide it,” Dr. Mark
Schickendantz cautioned. “A lit-
tle ding is not just a little ding.”
As part of a four-day retreat de-
signed to ease their transition
from college athletes to paid pro-
fessionals, NFC rookies attended
a seminar on health and safety
Monday hosted by Schicken-
dantz, one of many speakers who
will address the first-year players
on a variety of topics during the
league’s rookie symposium, now
in its 15th year.
Shickendantz touched on a
number of health issues ranging
from banned substances to heat
and hydration during his Power
Point presentation.
He spent a significant portion
of his discussion dealing with
concussions, a subject at the fore-
front of league matters the past
two years. Shickendantz began
by explaining that the players
will have to undergo a prelimina-
rybasetest duringtrainingcamp,
and he outlined the necessary
steps they’ll have to followif they
sustain a head injury.
Shickendantz emphasized the
league was only interested in the
players’ well-being.
“Our only agenda is your
health and safety,” he said. “It’s
about you, not about us.”
Dallas Cowboys rookie corner-
back Morris Claiborne found the
session informative and helpful.
While most players don’t consid-
er head injuries on the field, Clai-
borne said any outside discus-
sion on potential long-term ef-
fects of head injuries are sober-
ing.
“You think about it when
you’re sitting in here,” Claiborne
said afterward outside one of the
conference rooms at The Ber-
tram Hotel. “Being a football
player, once you’re on the field,
you don’t think about getting
concussions or stuff like that. It’s
very important.
“It could be the difference be-
tween life or death. If you feel
symptoms or those kind of
things, you need to tell some-
one.”
The issue of players hiding
their symptoms from trainers
and teamdoctors has been one of
the league’s major obstacles in
trying to improve safety and min-
imize health risks.
League rookies receive advice
on concussions during retreat
By TOMWITHERS
AP Sports Writer
Looking lethargic, and rarely
showing off the power-based
game that carried her to five
Wimbledon titles and seven ma-
jors overall, Williams departed
meekly Monday with a 6-1, 6-3
defeat against 79th-rankedElena
Vesnina of Russia. Only once be-
fore —as a teenager making her
Wimbledondebut in1997 —had
Williams exited so early at the
All England Club.
She hadn’t lost in the first
roundat any GrandSlamtourna-
ment in 6
1
⁄2 years. Still, Williams
said she’ll be at the London
Olympics next month and is
“planning” tobe backat Wimble-
don next year.
“I feel like I’m a great player,”
Williams said, sounding a tad
like someone trying to convince
herself.
She repeated that affirmation
as she continued: “I am a great
player. Unfortunately, I had to
deal with circumstances that
people don’t normally have to
deal withinthis sport. But I can’t
be discouraged by that. ...
There’s no way I’m just going to
sit down and give up just be-
cause I have a hard time the first
five or six freakin’ tournaments
back.”
Later, as part of a slightly testy
and awkward exchange with re-
porters, Williams said: “I’m
tough, let me tell you. Tough as
nails.”
Her loss, in her first match
since a second-round ouster at
the French Open, was part of an
odd Day 1, even if the true tour-
nament favorites in action won
easily: Novak Djokovic, Roger
Federer, Maria Sharapova.
Among those sent home were
sixth-seeded Tomas Berdych,
the 2010 runner-up at Wimble-
don; 11th-seeded John Isner; No.
16Flavia Pennetta; andNo. 18Je-
lena Jankovic, who was rather
easily beaten6-2, 6-4 by KimClij-
sters, a four-time major cham-
pion who has been beset by inju-
ries in her last season on tour
and, like Williams, is unseeded.
Other seeded losers: No. 23
Andreas Seppi, No. 24 Marcel
Granollers and No. 27 Daniela
Hantuchova of Slovakia, who
was upset by100th-rankedJamie
Hampton of the United States
6-4, 7-6 (1).
Truth be told, the biggest sur-
prise might very well have been
the way Isner — the highest-
ranked American man — blew a
match point, wasted a two-sets-
to-one lead, dropped a tiebreak-
er on grass, and bid a 6-4, 6-7 (7),
3-6, 7-6 (7), 7-5 farewell to Wim-
bledon in the first round against
73rd-ranked Alejandro Falla of
Colombia.
Then again, there’s a pattern
here.
It’s the third consecutive ma-
jor tournament that Isner leaves
after a five-set loss, including18-
16 at the French Open against
261st-ranked Paul-Henri Math-
ieu. This from a guy who’s best
known for winning the longest
match in tennis history, 70-68 in
thefifthafter morethan11hours,
against Nicolas Mahut at Wim-
bledon in 2010.
“I didn’t put my opponent
away. I had my chances, and I
didn’t do it. It’s all on me. Was
just not great on my part,” said
the 6-foot-9 Isner, whohit 31aces
to Falla’s four. “I get out there
sometimes, and lately it’s hap-
pening quite a lot, and I get out
there inthe matchandI’mjust so
clouded. I just can’t seem to fig-
ure things out. I’mmy ownworst
enemy out there. It’s all mental
for me, andit’s pretty poor onmy
part.”
Mental strength has long been
viewed as Ernests Gulbis’ weak-
ness, because his strokes are as
good as they come, but the 23-
year-old from Latvia who is
ranked 87th stood tall in a 7-6
(5), 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4) victory over
Berdych.
“A lot of players mature later
than others. Some mature at 15;
some mature at 29. I hope it’s
somewhere in between; 23 is
OK,” Gulbis said. “If I hit the ball
well, I hit stronger than everybo-
dy else. It is like this, you know.
Maybe only couple guys hit the
ball as strong as I do.”

OMAHA, Neb. — Ryan
Lochte still has Michael Phelps’
number.
Phelps, though, has put him-
self in position to go for another
gaudy number: eight gold med-
als at the London Olympics.
Lochte won his latest show-
down with the winningest Olym-
pian ever, beating Phelps for the
first time in the 400-meter indi-
vidual medley at the U.S. Olym-
pic swimming trials Monday
night.
In taking the first spot on the
Olympic team, Lochte extended
his dominance of Phelps that
goes back to last year’s world
championships, where the 27-
year-old Floridian won five gold
medals and both head-to-head
races against Phelps.
Phelps started strong on the
butterfly leg, his best stroke, but
Lochte took command when
they switched to the breast-
stroke. He built a lead of about a
half-body length and held off
Phelps in the freestyle finish,
cruising to the wall with one
arm extended to post a time of 4
minutes, 7.06 seconds. Phelps
claimed the second Olympic
spot in 4:07.89, setting himself
up for another eight-event pro-
gram in London — something
he insisted he wouldn’t do again
after the Beijing Games.
In other finals on the opening
night of the trials, Peter Vander-
kaay became a three-time Olym-
pian by winning the 400 free,
while 19-year-old Elizabeth Bei-
sel earned her second straight
trip to the Olympics in the 400
individual medley.
Brendan Hansen also was im-
pressive in the semifinals. The
former world-record holder
broke a minute in the 100 breast-
stroke, going into Tuesday
night’s final as the top qualifier.
Local star Corey Welch, a 2001
Wyoming Valley West grad, was
5.57 seconds off the pace in the
breaststroke and did not reach
the finals. His time of 1:05.86
during Heat 11 placed him130th.
Welch had a great start, swim-
ming the first 50 meters in 29.84
seconds – a time which would
challenge for one of 16 finals
berths. The last 50 meters were
where the former University of
Florida standout fell off the pace.

Brandon Sutter realizes his
role as a checking-line center
won’t be changing with his new
team, the Pittsburgh Penguins.
He does have reason to believe
it’s a job that might have become
a little easier.
After spending the past four
seasons with the Carolina Hurri-
canes having to defend against
Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Mal-
kin, Sutter now counts both as
teammates.
“I can remember coming into
Pittsburgh having to play against
Crosby or Malkin, which wasn’t
always a ton of fun,” Sutter said
on a teleconference call Monday,
three days after being acquired
by Pittsburgh in a deal that sent
Jordan Staal to Carolina. “I’m
looking forward to being on the
other side of that now.”
Another benefit in joining the
prolific Penguins is the potential
of a trickle-down effect Crosby
and Malkin can provide in help-
ing Sutter add a little more of-
fense — something he found to
be missing in his game Carolina.
“I felt there were times where I
almost felt like I was stuck,” Sut-
ter said, referringtohowthe Hur-
ricanes regarded him mostly for
his defense.
“I don’t want to be looked at as
just a defensive player. I want to
score goals and do things, too,”
Sutter said. “Obviously, I don’t
knowwhoI’ll be playingwithyet,
but in terms of roster, their ros-
ter’s obviously deeper than what
we’re used to in Carolina. And a
chance to play with more talent-
ed players, too, can help.”
Though it took a few days for
the shock of being traded for the
first time inhis career to wear off,
Sutter is finding himself more ex-
cited about the opportunity to
join a proven winner.
“I’ve still yet to play in a playoff
game. For me, I’m a point now
where it’s about winning,” he
said. “And obviously, playing
with two big guys down the mid-
dle, playing behind them, is go-
ing to be a great opportunity for
me.”
Sutter was the key piece of the
deal for the Penguins in finding a
player who could immediately
step in and fill Staal’s role. At 23,
Sutter is a 2007 first-round draft
pick who has spent the past four
seasons establishing himself as a
capable third-line center.
Sutter had 17 goals and 15 as-
sists in 82 games last year, with
his best season coming in 2009-
10, when he had 21 goals and 40
points in 72 games.
As part of the deal, the Pen-
guins also acquired defenseman
Brian Dumoulin and Carolina’s
No. 8 pick, which they used to
draft defenseman Derrick Pou-
liot.
Staal’s long-term future in
Pittsburghhadbecomeuncertain
after the player rejected the Pen-
guins’ offer of a long-term con-
tract extension. Staal was look-
ing for a chance to expand his
role from beyond the shadow of
Crosby and Malkin, and also in-
terested in joining his older
brother, Eric Staal, in Carolina.
Though they play the same
role, Sutter wasn’t interested in
drawing comparisons between
him and Staal,
“I’mmy own player. I don’t feel
like I’m here to replace anyone,”
Sutter said. “I feel like the Pen-
guins hadtomake a deal. I’mglad
they picked me. I’m going to a
winning team where there’s op-
portunity.”
Winnipeg signs goaltender
Pavelec to five-year extension
WINNIPEG, Manitoba —
Goaltender Ondrej Pavelec and
the Winnipeg Jets have agreed to
a $19.5 million, five-year deal.
The 24-year-old Czech had
been headed to restricted free
agency this summer. He made
$1.3 million last season.
He appeared in 68 games last
season, compiling a 29-28-9 re-
cord, 2.91 goals-against average
and .906 save percentage.
Pavelec was originally drafted
by the Atlanta Thrashers in the
second round in 2005.
Jets backup Chris Mason is eli-
gible to become an unrestricted
free agent on July 1. Winnipeg al-
so acquired the rights to Toronto
goalie Jonas Gustavsson over the
weekend at the NHL draft.

$410M Madoff settlement
Money manager and Bernard Madoff
associate J. Ezra Merkin will pay $410
million to compensate investors after
losing more than $1.2 billion of their
money to Madoff’s Ponzi scheme.
New York Attorney General Eric T.
Schneiderman on Monday called the
agreement one of the largest of its
kind. As part of the deal, Schneider-
man will drop civil charges against
Merkin accusing him of misleading
clients on Madoff’s involvement in
their investments.
Merkin managed four funds -- Ariel
Fund, Gabriel Capital, Ascot Fund and
Ascot Partners.
Microsoft buying Yammer
Microsoft is paying $1.2 billion to
buy Yammer, an Internet startup that
has built a social network similar to
Facebook for the business world.
The deal announced Monday comes
nearly two weeks after word of Micro-
soft’s negotiations with Yammer first
leaked. Yammer provides ways for
companies to create private social
networks for their employees. It has
more than 5 million corporate users.
Yammer plans to continue offering a
standalone service, while Microsoft
will encourage its use alongside its
other business products, including
Office and SharePoint.
Verizon spectrum deals
Verizon Wireless on Monday said
that it has agreed to sell some wireless
spectrum rights to T-Mobile USA and
swap others, in a continuing quest to
get regulators to approve a bigger spec-
trum deal it has worked out with a
consortium of cable companies and
another wireless carrier.
The deal with T-Mobile USA would
improve the ability of both companies
to offer fast wireless data services,
Verizon said.
RIM shares in freefall
Shares of BlackBerry maker Re-
search In Motion have dived to a nine-
year low Monday after Morgan Stanley
downgraded the stock, saying RIM’s
challenges are piling up.
Research In Motion Ltd.’s shares fell
75 cents, or 7.6 percent, to $9.11. The
day’s low was $9.01, the lowest since
2003. RIM shares have lost 94 percent
of their value since their 2008 peak.
Morgan Stanley’s Ehud Gelblum set
a price target of $7 on the shares, be-
low most Wall Street analysts.

Microsoft’s Surface
tablet comes late toa
game dominatedby
Apple andseveral
Android-basedde-
vices, but witha differ-
ent approach.
By the time the
Surface comes tomarket, any newMi-
crosoft-powereddevice will have more or
less the same user experience. If youcan
use Windows 8, you’ll be able touse a
computer, a Surface or a Microsoft
phone. Unlike iPadandAndroidtablets,
whichrundedicatedoperatingsystems,
the Surface will runa specializedversion
of Windows 8.
There have beenWindows tablets in
the past –essentially stripped-downPCs
crammedintoa tablet body that offered
relatively anemic performance andwere
difficult touse. The Surface is different:
Since Microsoft is the manufacturer, it
will have full control over the user expe-
rience.
The twoversions of the Surface look
the same onthe outside but are radically
different inside.
The basic model will runWindows
RT, a lightweight versionof Windows 8,
andwill be drivenby a mobile-optimized
Nvidia Tegra ARMprocessor. Windows
RTwill only be able torunapps that are
approvedfor Surface tablets fromthe
Windows store –just like iPadandAn-
droiddevices. It will offer 32or 64GBof
storage, feature a10.6-inchHDscreen,
andUSB2.0andmicroHDMI jacks. It
weighs inat about1½pounds.
The Surface Profeatures anIntel Core
i5processor andwill runthe full version
of Windows 8–it will offer 64or128GB
of storage, a better display, USB3.0and
MiniDisplay jacks andadds a stylus.
Bothwill share a commondesignand
interface, MicroSDcardslots, a multi-
touchscreenandtwodifferent types of
covers: TouchType.
The TouchCover features a touch-
sensitive keyboard; the Type Cover
features anactual “tactile” keypad.
Surprisingly, at launch, bothdevices
will offer Wi-Fi only. There’s nowordon
price yet, but Microsoft suggests that it
will be “competitive” withdevices of
similar power. Accordingtothe compa-
ny, they’ll be available at aroundthe
same time that Windows 8hits the
stores, whichis expectedtobe this fall.
The specs andcapabilities of these
devices, the Surface Proinparticular,
seemtosuggest that these devices will
have superior utility inmany ways to
current tablets –particularly considering
that the Surface Prowill runWindows 8
andbothoffer true USBconnectivity.
The fact that they’re late tothe game
doesn’t helpMicrosoft, but maybe mon-
ey andtheir PCmarket share will be the
wedge that it needs tobe successful.

SUPER-SIZED IN LONDON

T
he newly constructed two-story McDonald’s restaurant at the Olympic Park in east London will be its big-
gest and busiest in the world, seating 1,500 diners and serving up to 14,000 people a day, the company
said Monday. The building is designed to be reusable and recyclable after the London 2012 Olympic and Para-
lympic Games.
WASHINGTON—Americans
bought newhomes in May at the
fastest pace in more than two
years. The increase suggests a
modest recovery is continuing
in the U.S. housing market, de-
spite weaker job growth.
The Commerce Department
said Monday that sales of new
homes increased 7.6 percent in
May from April to a seasonally
adjusted annual rate of 369,000
homes. That’s the best pace
since April 2010, the last month
that buyers could qualify for a
federal home-buying tax credit.
Even with the gains, the an-
nual sales pace is less than half
the 700,000 that economists
consider to be healthy.
Yet the increase follows other
signs that show the housing
market is slowly improving near-
ly five years after the bubble
burst.
Builders are gaining confi-
dence in the market and starting
to build more homes. Mortgage
rates have plunged to the lowest
levels on record, making home-
buying more affordable. Prices
remain low and have started to
stabilize. And sales of previously
occupied homes are much high-
er than the same time last year.
The median price of a new
home sold in May edged down
0.6 percent from the April to
$234,500. But the median price
was 5.6 percent higher than the
same month one year ago.
At the current sales pace, it
would take 4.7 months to ex-
haust the May supply.
New-home
sales rise
By MARTIN CRUTSINGER
AP Economics Writer
The seasonally adjusted unemploy-
ment rate for the tri-county Wilkes-
Barre/Scranton metropolitan area held
steady in May at 8.7 percent for the third
straight month. The rate continued to be
the highest among the state’s 14 most
populated regions.
Pennsylvania’s jobless rate also was
unchangedinMayat 7.4percent. The na-
tional rate climbed slightly, by a tenth of
a point, to 8.2 percent.
While there hasn’t been much move-
ment in recent months locally, with the
total number of nonfarmjobs unchanged
at 258,000, the unemployment rate de-
creased by six-tenths of a point over the
year. That mirrored Pennsylvania’s drop,
while the U.S. rate was down eight-
tenths.
The local region’s seasonally adjusted
total nonfarm jobs were up 1.8 percent,
or 4,600, over the year.
The number of people employed re-
mained steady in both Lackawanna and
Wyoming counties and increased by 100
in Luzerne. But because of labor force
changes, the unemployment rate grewin
Luzerne and Wyoming by one-tenth of a
percentagepoint to9percent and8.6per-
cent respectively. In Lackawanna, the
rate dropped by one-tenth to 8.3.
Anthony Liuzzo, director of the mas-
ter of business administration program
at Wilkes University, saidthe lackof posi-
tive movement is troubling.
He expected a slow and painful recov-
ery from the worst recession since the
first half of the last century but he was
hopeful there’dbemorepositivemoment
by now.
“I’m not satisfied with the way (the
rates) have been going,” Liuzzo said. At
5.5 percent, State College had the state’s
lowest large market unemployment rate.
At 8.2, 8.2 and 8.1 percent respectively,
Johnstown, Philadelphia and Allen-
town/Bethlehem/Easton are the only
other metros besides Wilkes-Barre/
Scranton with a rate above 8 percent.

Q: What types of
screening tests are
available for depres-
sion? What blood
tests, X-ray tests,
verbalization tests,
written tests might
help diagnose de-
pression?
— J.B., Atlanta
A: The mind and the body are
interconnected. I believe that you
can’t look at the physical health
without looking at the mental
health — and vice versa. Whenever
I perform a complete history and
physical examination, I always in-
quire about mental health — par-
ticularly when there are physical
conditions that might predispose
one to depression. Examples in-
clude chronic pain conditions like
arthritis or migraine headaches;
hypothyroidism;
menstrual problems;
cancer; and heart
disease. Treatment
to improve one’s
physical health of-
ten, but not always,
leads to an eventual
improved sense of
well-being and an
improvement of
one’s mood.
While there aren’t
specific blood tests
to measure brain chemical neu-
rotransmitter levels or imaging
tests to pinpoint depression, there
are a number of depression screen-
ing tests that have been developed
over the years — many available
through a Google search.
I have developed my own screen-
ing questions which I’ll share with
you:
1) On a scale of 1 to 10, with “1”
feeling very happy and “10” feeling
like you wish your life was over,
how would you rate your mood?
2) On a scale of 1 to 10, with “1”
feeling very calm and “10” feeling
so anxious you could crawl out of
your skin, how would you rate your
anxiety level?
3) How would you rate your con-
centration — good, fair, poor or
somewhere in-between?
4) How would you rate your mo-
tivation — good, fair poor or some-
where in-between?
5) Do you have increased irrita-
bility?
6) Do you have increased crying
spells?
7) Are you stress-eating?
8) Do you have a decreased in-
terest in enjoyable activities?
9) Do you have difficulty falling
asleep? (a red flag for anxiety) and
10) Do you have trouble staying
asleep? (a red flag for underlying
depression). This provides both the
patient and the doctor with a mea-
sure of their mental state that can
be remeasured and compared after
an antidepressant is started.

n 2006, Charlotte Gray experienced her first signs of liver trouble. Six
years, several complications andonetransplant later, Gray, now60, and
her family still fight to keep her health in check.
Meanwhile, her 32-year-old daughter, Kelly Kablick, who eventually be-
came her mother’s living donor, is fighting a concurrent battle.
“It started when she switched family doc-
tors,” Jennifer Keller, 39, another of Gray’s
daughters, explained of her mother. “They or-
deredlab work andfoundnot only that her liv-
er enzymes were elevated but that she had a
Stage I tumor on her kidney.”
Inremovingthetumor doctors noticedmild
cirrhosis on the liver. More complications,
some liver-related, arose. Gray also was deter-
mined anemic, esophageal problems were
found, and her spleen became enlarged due to
the enlarged liver.
Thenjaundice andbouts of confusionset in,
and Keller knew something was terribly
wrong.
“I’m a nurse, so unfortunately I know too
much,” she said. “After she started to experi-
ence periods of confusion I called the doctor
to have her looked at.”

“Can (vitamin) B-12 taken orally be
effective (for more energy) or
must other B-vitamins be in-
cluded?”
B-vitamins taken orally (in food or
supplements) can indeed be
effective for energy production.
That’s one of their main purposes
— to help our cells derive energy
from the foods we eat. B-vitamins
also help produce red blood cells
that feed our body oxygen and
other nutrients. A deficiency of
vitamin B-12 — a condition called
“megaloblastic anemia” — can
cause fatigue and weakness.
When this condition is corrected,
energy levels can return to nor-
mal.
Here is some other interesting
information about vitamin B-12
from the National Institutes of
Health (NIH) Office of Dietary
Supplements (ODS): Vitamin B-12
is primarily found in foods of
animal origin such as meat, fish,
poultry, eggs, and dairy foods.
When we eat these foods, B-12 is
“freed” for use in our body by the
action of stomach acid and en-
zymes. Synthetic vitamin B-12 —
found in dietary supplements and
fortified foods — is already in its
“free” form. Whether natural or
synthetic, vitamin B-12 is absorb-
ed into the body only when it
combines with “intrinsic factor” —
a substance formed in the cells of
the stomach. Some people can
get plenty of vitamin B-12 in their
diets and still have a deficiency of
this vital nutrient, however. A
condition called “pernicious
anemia” destroys the stomach’s
ability to produce intrinsic factor
which prevents the absorption of
B-12.
People most at risk for vitamin
B-12 deficiency are those who
follow a strict vegetarian diet or
have a reduced amount of stom-
ach acid. And as we age, our
stomachs produce less acid. For
this reason, nutrition experts now
recommend people older than 50
obtain most of their vitamin B-12
from foods with “free” vitamin
B-12 such as fortified cereals and
dietary supplements.
How much do we need? The Rec-
ommended Dietary Allowance
(RDA) for healthy people older
than the age of 14 years is 2.4
micrograms of vitamin B-12 daily.
Higher doses have not been
found to be toxic since the body
is able to limit how much it ab-
sorbs.

DETROIT – Loretta Moore looked at her-
self in the mirror one morning and didn’t
like what she saw.
“I was ridiculously overweight,” Moore
said. “I couldn’t get into most of my clothes
anymore.”
Standing 5-feet-4, Moore weighed 252
pounds.
That image was all it took for Moore, 56,
of Detroit to start walking regularly.
It took a funeral for Jodi Davis.
At the funeral of a relative, she watched
as the woman’s son cried at his mother’s
casket. The woman who had died was in
her early 40s.
“I thought that could be me” in the cas-
ket, said Davis, 45, of Coloma in western
Michigan. Davis, too, was extremely obese.
She is 5-feet-6 and weighed 300 pounds.

the state, Moore and Davis
took similar steps to get their
weight and health under con-
trol.
They began walking regular-
ly and eliminated a lot of sug-
ary and high-fat foods from
their diets.
Moore
shed 69
pounds in
the past
two years
and is
working
toward los-
ing more.
And she no
longer
takes med-
ications to
control her
once-high
blood pres-
sure.
After dropping 162 pounds
over 16 months, Davis has
maintained her weight for
about 10 years. She became a
healthy living advocate for Blue
Cross Blue Shield of Michigan
and is featured on the cover of
the recently released “The Joy
Fit Club: Cookbook, Diet Plan
& Inspiration” (Wiley, $27.99)
by Joy Bauer, a nutrition expert
on NBC’s “Today” show.
Moore and Davis are proof
that getting fit starts by taking
it one step at a time.
Health and fitness experts
say that walking is one of the
best ways to improve your
health — and that when the
weather is warm, it’s a great
time to get started.
“There are clear physical,
emotional and social benefits of
walking,” said Victor Katch, an
avid walker and University of
Michigan movement science
professor.
Walking reduces depression
and wards off or slows the pro-
gression of chronic diseases
such as diabetes and heart dis-
ease, Katch said. And one of the
best things about walking as a
major form of exercise is that
almost everyone can do it.
“Walking is easy to do. It en-
gages most of the major mus-
cles of the body. It’s good for
balance and internal function-
ing,” he said.
And, unlike some exercises,
you don’t have to go anywhere
special to do it, said Katch, who
walks daily — sometimes twice
or three times on a really good
day. “I’m a mover,” he said. “I’d
like to say I’m a mover and a
shaker, but really, I’m just a
mover.”
Katch and other walking ad-
vocates say two of the best
ways to stick to a regimen is to
have a partner or group, to walk
in places that inspire and en-
courage you and to set a goal —
such as walking a 5K or a half
marathon.
The scenery, improved
health and group support are
among the attractions for the
Detroit River Walkers — a
group of almost 1,000 people 60
and older who walk Tuesday
and Thursday mornings on the
Detroit RiverWalk in a program
sponsored by Detroit Receiving
Hospital.
“My strength and endurance
have improved,” said Edythe
Hayden Friley, 65, who has
been walking with the River
Walkers for five years. “And it’s
good for me emotionally. You
hear so much bad stuff about
the city. But here, there’s such
peace, tranquility and beauty
along the water. It just makes
you feel good.”
The Detroit RiverWalk is one
of Moore’s favorite places to go
for a stroll, too. She walks
along the riverfront at least
three times a week. Occasional-
ly, they veer off along the near-
by Dequindre Cut Greenway.
“We started out just doing a
few miles, but sometimes we
get in about 7 miles,” says
Moore, a clinical care manager
for a mental health facility in
Wixom.
“I can wear all my clothes
again,” she says. “I love the new
me.”
Davis walks every day for at
least 1 ½ miles along Lake Mi-
chigan near her home.
Both women suggest walking
at a brisk pace; as they lost
weight, they were able to walk
faster.

I had no feeling in my feet and did not feel comfortable walking up
steps and maintaining my balance. My feet would swell and hurt so
bad that even a blanket on them would be painful. It limited me
because I couldn’t walk even in my bare feet. Now I can walk in my
bare feet and I love it.
I now can walk up and down steps easily and don’t have the
severe pain that I had. I recommend Neuropathy Center
of Kingston to everyone I know. I also like the people here.
It’s like being part of a family.

of aliver transplant. Her position
on the list was determined by
her MELD, or Model for End-
stage Liver Disease, score. The
scale goes as such: a score of less
than 9 is a 1.9 percent mortality
rate, 10to19is 6percent, 20to29
is 19.6 percent, 30 to 39 is 53.6
percent, and 40 or more is 71.3
percent. At the time Gray’s score
was 14.
In late August 2011 she was
taken to the University of Penn-
sylvania to begin the transplant
process.
“There were millions of tests
that had to be done so she could
even be put on the transplant
list,” Keller said. “Cardiac work-
ups, colonoscopy, endoscopy,
MRIs, CAT scan, bloodwork. It
was an entire day of appoint-
ments and counseling and tests
and lab work.”
On the other end of the spec-
trum was the discussion of a liv-
ing donor, for which Keller said
there was no shortness of volun-
teers.
“Myself, my sister, my brother,
sister-in-law, mom’s best friend,
friends of the family … There
were a lot of people willing.”
At first it was thought that
Gray’s 38-year-old son, Jeff,
wouldbe the donor, but that hit a
snag.
“What we didn’t know is that
in addition to having to match
my mother’s blood type, the do-
nor hadtohave a certainBMI (or
body-mass index, which is an ap-
proximationof body fat basedon
weight and height). My brother
would have had to lose a tremen-
dous amount of weight in order
to fit the criteria.”
Eventually it was determined
that Kablick, whose BMI was ac-
ceptable and O Negative blood
type fit with Gray’s A Positive,
was to be the donor. That, in it-
self, was a process.
“Youhave togothroughall the
same tests as the recipient, and
you also have to meet with a psy-
chologist,” Keller said. “If you’re
married (which Kablick is) your
spouse has to go with you be-
cause he has tobe absolutely cer-
tain that he’s OK with this.
“It’s also incredibly lengthy.
My sister started the process in
October, and the surgery was in
January. They make it as long as
possible so the donor has time to
back out if they want to.”
This thought process is not
uncommon, as Keller said be-
coming a donor takes its toll.
The eight-hour procedure re-
moves 60 percent of the donor’s
liver.
“They explain to you that, go-
ing into this, the recipient is go-
ing to feel like garbage because
of all the toxins intheir bodythat
the liver isn’t filtering out, so
they really have nowhere to go
but up. As a donor, you feel per-
fect going in, but your body is
used to having 100 percent of its
liver so once more than half of
that is gone, you’re going to feel
like you got hit by a train.”
Kablick had a rough recovery.
“When she came out of ICU
andwent into a regular roomshe
woke up in a panic,” Keller said.
“She needed someone to be with
her.”
There was a mental toll on
Gray as well.
“Liver-transplant patients are
extremely confused coming out
of anesthesia,” Keller explained.
“My mother was yelling, ‘Get me
out of here, get me out of here,’
and trying to rip her tubes off.
We needed someone to sit with
her at all times.”
The transplant was a success,
though it wasn’t until June that
the family and doctors realized
something had happened during
Gray’s recovery process.
“She had a stroke, and we had
no idea,” Keller said. “We took
her to doctors in June because
she was having neurological
changes, anda CATscanshowed
swelling in her brain, and some-
time after the surgery she had a
stroke. It mimics a lot of the
symptoms of recovery, like
weakness and confusion, so it’s
not hard to mistake one for the
other.”
Today, Gray’s battle contin-
ues. She is again hospitalized at
the University of Pennsylvania,
where she underwent an emer-
gency appendectomy Sunday.
Though insurance has cov-
eredmany of the procedures, the
medical bills mount, with some
“coming out of the woodwork,”
Keller said. Home therapy, medi-
cation and transportation costs
add to the expenses. To offset
these costs the family has
planned a benefit at Rodano’s on
Public Square inWilkes-Barre on
Sunday. A $20 fee will cover a
day of music, food and beverag-
es, and additional money will be
raised through basket raffles.

Dear Abby: “Penns-
ville, N.J., Reader”
(May 15) complained
that her book club
members don’t al-
ways read their cur-
rent book and want
to socialize instead.
I can add nothing to your thoughtful
answer. Still, her letter troubles me.
As you know, literacy is under siege
in America, and many people can’t
follow the directions on a box of cake
mix. Years ago, I heard Margaret
Mead speak. She warned us against
turning into a “machine-worshipping
society,” and that is precisely what we
have become. It’s killing off a part of
our brains. We are wired to electronic
messaging most of the time, at our
peril. Reading serious books helps to
reclaim our brains.
Each member of my group has a
voice in selecting the book. Most of
us do read the monthly selection, and
the moderator — friendly but firm
— keeps us on track with our discus-
sions. No one ventures too far afield,
ever. If someone comes to the meet-
ing and hasn’t read the selection, she
simply listens and takes notes while
the others discuss the designated
chapters.
I feel strongly that if anyone wants
to socialize instead, he/she should
arrange and host their own meetings
at home and make it clear that the
gathering is a social chat.
— Book Club Member in New York
Dear Book Club Member: Readers
agree that the reading and socializing
should be kept separate and were
quick to offer solutions to the prob-
lem of mixing the two. Read on:
Dear Abby: For years, I have led
three book groups in three different
states. Our monthly meetings are
two hours long; the discussions are
60 to 90 minutes. Socializing comes
afterward. We choose books by ballot,
voting from a list submitted by mem-
bers. Each member leads discussions
on a rotating basis of a book that par-
ticularly piques their interest.
If the nonreaders of the group
mentioned in the letter (who should
not be attending a book group just
to socialize) were discussion leaders,
they WOULD read the book. If they
choose to attend without reading,
they should remain quiet during the
discussion and wait to socialize later.
Give those lazy nonreaders a task!
— Sergeant-At-Arms in South Dakota
Dear Abby: I have discovered the
joy of audio books. Most of them are
classics long out of copyright, but
classics are classics because they are
GOOD. My local library has a way to
access current books by best-selling
authors. I get all of these treasures on
my cellphone and listen to them.
Being “too busy” is no longer an
excuse for not being well-read. I’ll
bet the women in that club would get
with the program if they were intro-
duced to audio books.
— Wired Bookworm, Stillwater,
Okla.
Dear Abby: Here’s how our club
handled the problem of members not
reading the books: We started charg-
ing $5 for failure to do it. The money
is held by our treasurer, and every
summer it is used to pay for meals
during our yearly summer outing.
— Book-Clubber, Too
DEAR ABBY
A D V I C E
It should be all about discussing the book when serious readers meet
To receive a collection of Abby’s most
memorable — and most frequently re-
quested — poems and essays, send a busi-
ness-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus
check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in
Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box
447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage
is included.)
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re
observant and curious about
interactions regardless of wheth-
er or not they involve you. In
fact, you best interpret how oth-
ers are feeling by the way they
look when they are not interact-
ing with you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your
powers of reason will be put to
excellent use. You’ll calm some-
one with logic — maybe yourself.
You’ll solve a problem or prove a
postulate.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Wealth
is transient. Some have built
riches over a lifetime only to see
the next generation dwindle the
funds down to nothing. Realizing
the temporal nature of riches,
you’ll spend yours in a way that
makes you happy.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Others
know your beauty because they
can stand back and take in the
entire picture of you — or at least
the picture from their angle.
You’re too close to observe your-
self, so believe their
compliments.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s
nothing wrong with being silly. In
fact, you’ll create something so
right by connecting with another
person in a shared bit of inan-
ity. The human condition can be
quite absurd, indeed!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are
not the only one allowed to write
on the blank page of your life.
Sometimes people take their
own pen and start scribbling.
You will take those lines and
make something beautiful out of
them.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll
revisit a scenario from last week.
This is not a rerun in which the
lines are predictable and the out-
come is the same. This is more
of a do-over. The outcome is up
to you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll
do your best work while sleep-
ing. Your mind’s poetry will
weave associations as beautiful
as they are nonsensical. Keep a
notebook and pen next to the
bed, and jot down your impres-
sions immediately upon waking.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Those who do not readily say
“thank you” are perhaps not as
mindful of your contribution as
they might be. You’re much more
likely to give to those who know
how to receive graciously.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Style and technique figure into
your success in a big way today,
so don’t be afraid to spend the
bulk of your time making things
exactly what you want them
to be.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You
have a strong need for an audi-
ence, and you’ll attract a decent
one. What they lack in numbers
they’ll have in heart. People want
to be involved with you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are
so giving and open-minded now
that the necessity of personal
boundaries may not occur to
you. Draw some anyway. Later,
you’ll be glad you did.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 26).
You’ll right something from your
past and start anew in July. You
like being rich in experiences,
but you also want to be rich in
money. Your lucky numbers are:
30, 24, 1, 26 and 39.
