Hazleton councilman says some values out of whack


By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

County reassessment needed?


A two-family house in Hazleton recently sold for $70,000, but the buyer will be paying taxes on an assessed value almost twice that, or $135,900. Another house in Hazleton assessed at $161,800 was purchased for $55,000 in March, property records show. Hazleton City Councilman Jack Mundie said hes surrounded by examples of this scenario, which is why hes pushing county ofcials to honor the countys past pledge to conduct a countywide reassessment every four years. Mundie told county ofcials many assessments in his area were too high when the last reassessment took effect in 2009, and the situation hasnt improved, he said. Here it is ve years later, and our area is still paying an unfair share, said Mundie. They promised to keep up with reassessments to be fair. The reassessment included a non-binding commissioner resolution to revalue all properties every four years to keep the assessments fresh, but county ofcials have rejected the provision, apparently believing the assessments are still accurate enough. Mundies research shows Hazleton area properties are selling 25 percent to 30 percent below assessments on average, he said, and he stressed

Chief denies coverup


Ex-assistant chief in Kingston contends media and his former bosses are attacking
KINGSTON The municipalitys former assistant police chief on Saturday admitted violating Kingstons 2009 payment policy for special detail ofcers but disputed a nding of an internal investigation that he covered up the practice of paying them in cash. Dan Hunsinger, who retired from the Kingston Police Department in March to take the job of chief in neighboring Forty Fort, further said he was being attacked by the news media and his former bosses Mayor James Haggerty and administrator Paul Keating for the violation. It just seems like theyre taking it personal and lashing out, he said of Keating and Haggerty. Hunsinger They came to his swearingin at Forty Fort and gave him a proclamation when he left Kingston, he said, adding, I dont understand. Hunsinger, 50, of Kingston To read the submitted a statement by email statement to The Times Leader to be pub- of Forty Fort lished as a letter to the editor. Police Chief He conrmed on Saturday that Daniel E. he sent the statement and spoke Hunsinger, visit www.timesto a reporter about it. leader.com I did what I did for years, Hunsinger said outside his front door. He also took issue with the report prepared by the Philadelphia law rm of Ballard Spahr, questioning its thoroughness and conclusion that he and former chief Keith Keiper were operating the equivalent of their own security force and putting the municipality at risk for a costly and possibly bankrupting claim for damages because the ofcers were paid under the table and not covered by Kingstons insurance policies and worker compensation. I wasnt taking a cut of their money, Hunsinger said. He received a letter on May 31 asking him to meet with the law rms attorney, John P. McLaughlin, about the investigation. Hunsinger said he called the mayor, who told him to talk to McLaughlin. He also prepared a response that he forwarded to the Fraternal Order of Police for review, but said the organization was mute on the matter because of his

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. President Barack Obama pushed Chinese leader Xi Jinping to do more to address the online theft of U.S. intellectual and other property coming from his country and said the hacking isinconsistent with the kind of relationObama ship we want to have with China, a top White House aide said. Obama national security adviser Tom Donilon said Xi discussion of cybersecurity took up much of the Saturday morning meeting between the two leaders, which ended with few policy breakthroughs but the prospect of stronger personal ties. Donilon said Obama described in detail instances of hacking against U.S. companies by entities in China and said the U.S. didnt have any doubt who was behind them. The president underscored that resolving this issue was really key to future economic U.S.-China relations, Donilon told reporters after about eight hours of meetings Friday and Saturday. The gathering at the sprawling Sunnylands estate was their rst meeting since Xi took ofce in March. Obama asked that the Chinese government engage on this issue and understand that if its

Are you being watched? And do you care?


Torn between desires for privacy and protection, we are now forced to choose.
By ADAM GELLER AP National Writer

NEW YORK For more than a decade now, Americans have made peace with the uneasy knowledge that someone government, business or both might be watching.

We knew that the technology was there. We knew that the law might allow it. As we stood under a security camera at a street corner, connected with friends online or talked on a smart phone equipped with GPS, we knew, too, it was conceivable that we might be monitored. Now, though, paranoid fantasies have come face to face with modern reality: The government IS collecting our phone records. The tech-

nological marvels of our age have opened the door to the National Security Agencys sweeping surveillance of Americans calls. Torn between our desires for privacy and protection, were now forced to decide what we really want. We are living in an age of surveillance, said Neil Richards, a profesSee WATCHING, Page 16A

EXETER OK, it might sound a little weird, but its a fact: Were it not for a deviated septum and the Vietnam War ending when it did, Ron Petrilla probably wouldnt be in the profession hes about to leave after 35 years. Yet the job is so ingrained in his psyche the man cant talk about himself

When I started, we had two rooms in the Kirby Health Center in WilkesBarre, the retiring executive director of the Greater Wilkes-Barre Association for the Blind said as he launched an unexpected tour of the agencys roomy, two-oor home. We served northern Luzerne County and part of Wyoming County. Thanks to numerous donations, the new home, acquired in 2007, includes

IN BRIEF
SHICKSHINNY

Law assistance sought

Mayor Beverly Moore and borough ofcials Saturday appealed to the state and Luzerne County for assistance after several people in their community recently were charged for allegedly manufacturing methamphetamine. Ofcials held a press conference at the borough building to highlight the problem and ask for help from law enforcement for the boroughs police force that has two part-time ofcers. Stephen Rodney Reider of Baer Street was charged on Tuesday after police monitoring purchases of cold medicine at area pharmacies alleged he had the ingredients to make the methamphetamine. He bought psuedoephedrine from a pharmacy in Nanticoke, according to police. Police also said he had equipment and materials consistent with making methamphetamine in his closet.

Complex renamed The Jean and Hal Flack Family Sports and Recreation Park.
By Camille Fioti Times Leader Correspondent

Back Mt. Field of Dreams dedicated


A soccer eld currently bears the name Flack Field in recognition of donations from the Flack family, whose members were instrumental in setting up The Back Mountain Recreation Endowment Fund managed by The Luzerne Foundation. They gave us a very generous nancial gift about a year ago and we thought it was about time, said Sutton of the renaming of the 130-acre sports complex. The Jean and Hal Flack Family Sports and Recreation Park was conceived by an ad hoc committee made up of Back Mountain residents in 1997. Back Mountain Recreation was incorporated as a nonprot corporation in 1998 and purchased the 130 acres it owns in 2001 and 2002. Our interest started many years ago when our children played soccer, said Hal Flack. Our kids really beneted from Back Mountain Soccer, he said, giving credit to his wife, Jean, for driving their four kids to soccer practice and games. This never would have happened without Jean. Serving as the emcee, state Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, recalled taking

LEHMAN The famous message from the movie Field of Dreams If you build it, they will come seemed to inspire some Back Mountain residents to do the same. After sending letters to nearly 30,000 Back Mountain residents, asking them what they thought the Back Mountain needs as far as recreational venues, the overwhelming response was elds and trails, said Dave Sutton at Saturdays dedication ceremony at the Back Mountain Recreation Complex. Sutton, who is the executive director of the Back Mountain Recreation Board and also the chairman of the Lehman Township Board of Supervisors, joined business and community leaders in the ceremony to rename the eld The Jean and Hal Flack Family Sports and Recreation Park.

the Lehman Township Road Department for working to build the split-rail fence that borders the complex. Eric Wojciechowski, of Boy Scout Troop 232, was given a Community Volunteer Award for his Eagle Scout Project in 2010 to clear the trails in the park and create trail maps.

Thousands of people beneted from this complex, Hal Flack said. We are humbled and overwhelmed, and a bit embarrassed by all this fanfare. A whole lot of people did a whole lot of work. The real thank-you is when we look out and see all the kids and their families here.

Douglas made a captain

State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan promoted David T. Douglas of Bear Creek Township to captain and assigned him as director of the training division at the Bureau of Training and Education. A native of Wilkes-Barre, Douglas is a 1976 graduate of GAR High School and attended Kings College. He enlisted in the state police in 1984 and was initially assigned to Troop M, Stockertown. As he progressed through the ranks, Douglas served at stations in Troop K, Limerick; Troop R, Honesdale; Troop N, Hazleton, and most recently served as station commander for the Swiftwater barracks where he served for more than 17 years. Douglas was promoted to corporal in 1991, sergeant in 1993 and lieutenant in 1995. Douglas and his wife, Cheryl, have one son: Ryan.

KINGSTON TWP. A new bus route for the adventure-bound took its maiden voyage Saturday. Working closely with organizers from the Wilkes-Barre YMCA, The Luzerne County Transportation Authority started a daily bus run to Frances Slocum State Park. The inaugural run Saturday, which was also National Get Outdoors Day, carried 12 passengers to eager LCTA and YMCA planners waiting with prizes and free ice cream. Park manager Rex Bradish welcomed the travelers who carried day bags and coolers. Whether youre a current park user or a newcomer, this service is a really good way to connect to the park, Bradish said. Bradish encouraged riders

to bring bicycles and shing poles to use on the parks 13 miles of interconnecting trails and ve miles of shoreline shing space. The bus will make two runs daily from Monday through Saturday. The morning run leaves at 10 a.m. from the Wilkes-Barre Intermodal Center near Public Square with stops from Kingston to Exeter on the way to the park. The bus then takes a morning express route at 11:15 a.m. back to the city

for campers who need to return to civilization for a few hours. At 2:30 p.m., the bus follows the express route from the Intermodal Center back to the park to pick up day visitors at 3:15 p.m. and returns to town, dropping off passengers along the way. There are no Sunday runs. Saturdays run represented 13-year-old Sophie Polgars rst ride on public transit. She rode with her mom, Michele Schasberger, the YMCAs Healthy Com-

munities coordinator, and little sister. Polgar said, while she rides the school bus and takes charter buses to New York City to visit family, she always thought public buses were dirty and uncomfortable. I wasnt expecting it to be so nice, she said. Polgar plans to take the Frances Slocum bus often this summer with her friends. Students age 18 and younger can buy a $20 summer pass for unlimited riding. Senior citizens and children shorter than 42 inches ride for free. LCTA Operations Supervisor Robb Henderson said, regardless of Saturdays turnout, he expects the summer route to grow more popular, adding that many people have called the transportation authority to learn more about it.

DRUMS A long line of cars queued along Butler Drive on Saturday to take advantage of the 11th annual Electronics Recycling Collection event organized by the Luzerne County Solid Waste Management Department as part of a countywide project. The event was co-sponsored by The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and recycling company ECO International. Up to 95 percent of the items collected at Saturdays collection will be recycled for use in future manufacturing of new products, event organizers said. Some of the items collected included televisions, stereo equipment, laptops and personal computers, cellphones and printers. Cathode ray tubes from televisions sets comprise more than 70 percent of all the weight of collected items, ofcials explained. Todays turnout was fantastic, said Elizabeth DeNardi, Luzerne County recycling coordinator. Ive been organizing this for 11 years and the response just keeps growing. The all-day event the rst of two this month in Luzerne County was estimated to serve more than 600 county households. The recycling event set for Hanover Township on Saturday will serve more than 3,500 families.

PHILADELPHIA A heavy equipment operator with a lengthy rap sheet who is accused of being high on marijuana when a downtown building collapsed onto a thrift store, killing six people, surrendered Saturday to face charges in the deaths, police said. Sean Benschop faces six counts of involuntary manslaughter, 13 counts of recklessly endangering another person and one count of risking a catastrophe. A warrant had been issued for his arrest and police had been searching for him. Authorities believe the 42-year-old Benschop had been using an excavator Wednesday when the remains of the four-story building gave way and toppled onto an attached Salvation Army thrift store, killing two employees and

four customers and injuring 13 others. Deputy Mayor Everett Gillison said a toxicology report showed evidence that Benschop was high on marijuana. That nding, combined with witness statements and evidence from the scene, led to the decision Friday to raid his North Philadelphia home and later seek an arrest warrant, he said. Benschop didnt return phone messages left by The Associated Press at numbers listed in his name. Benschop, who also goes by the name Kary Roberts, has been arrested at least 11 times since 1994 on charges ranging from drugs to theft to weapons possession, according to court records. He was twice sentenced to prison in the 1990s after being convicted on drug trafcking charges. Benschops last arrest, on a charge of aggravated assault, came in January 2012, but the case was dismissed for lack of evidence. As the criminal investigation heated up, at least two survivors sued the demolition contractor and building owner,

Rival Koreas to talk today

The North on Saturday delivered its agreement to talk in Panmunjom through a Red Cross line restored a day earlier, Seouls Unication Ministry said in a text message. Pyongyang had earlier favored its border city of Kaesong, which contains the industrial park emptied in May after tensions peaked. Representatives of the rival Koreas met on the peninsula in February 2011 and their nuclear envoys met in Beijing later that year, but government ofcials from both sides have not met since.

Trainee kills 3 Americans

A man in an Afghan army uniform turned his weapon on American trainers working with him in the countrys east on Saturday, killing three of them, while an attacker with a grenade killed an Italian soldier in the west, ofcials said. An argument between the Afghan soldier and his trainers appeared to have led to Saturdays shooting on an Afghan National Army base in Paktikas Kher Qot district, according to a statement from the provincial governors ofce. The international military coalition in Afghanistan said two American service members and one U.S. civilian died. It had initially identied them as three U.S. military personnel. The angry Afghan soldier opened re during the argument, killing the three foreign trainers and wounding three others.

Body recovered from river


Authorities planned to conduct an autopsy Saturday on a body found in a river that is believed to be that of a 15-year-old girl who was abducted more than two weeks ago. Investigators are condent that the body a sherman found Friday night in the Des Moines River near Boone is that of Kathlynn Shepard, who was abducted in Dayton, about 20 miles north of Boone, on May 20 along with a 12-yearold girl who later escaped and called 911. Authorities believe Michael Klunder, a registered sex offender who has since killed himself, approached the girls after they got off their school bus and asked whether they wanted to earn money mowing lawns. They say Klunder offered to drive them to ask their parents for permission, but he instead took them to the hog connement facility where he worked.
ISLAMABAD

BOONE, IOWA

HOUSTON Houston resident Cheryl Strains inexperience with guns was apparent as she struggled to load shells into a 20-gauge shotgun. Over the piercing blasts of gunre in the shooting range, Strains instructor, Dan Blackford, patiently directed her on how to use her thumb to shove a shell all the way inside the barrel and feel it click. Now we got a round in the chamber ready to go, Blackford said as he positioned her body on the right way to hold the shotgun. Look down your sight, put that BB right in the middle of your target and press the trigger. Strains northwest Houston community of Oak Forest is the rst neighborhood in the country being trained and equipped by the Armed Citizen Project, a Houston nonprot that is giving away free shotguns to single women and residents of neighborhoods with high crime rates. While many cities have tried gun buy-backs and other tactics in the ongoing national debate on gun control, the nonprot and its supporters say gun giveaways to responsible owners are actually a better way to deter crime. The organization, which plans to offer training classes in Dallas, San Antonio, and Tucson, Ariz., in the next few weeks, is working to expand its giveaways to 15 cities by the end of the year, including Chicago and New York. But others in Houston, while expressing support for Second Amendment rights, question whether more guns will result in more gun-related deaths rather than less

crime. Residents of Oak Forest say their neighborhood, made up of older one-story houses and a growing number of new townhomes, has experienced a recent rash of driveway robberies and home burglaries. On a recent Sunday afternoon, a group

of 10 residents, including Strain, went through training at Shiloh Shooting, a northwest Houston gun range. Kyle Coplen, the projects 29-year-old founder said his group expects to train at least 50 Oak Forest residents and put up signs saying the neighborhood is armed.

When we have a crime wave, we dont just say lets just increase police and thats all we do. We do multiple things. I see this as one aspect of what we can do, said Coplen, who graduated from the University of Houston with a masters degree in public administration.

JOHANNESBURG South Africans on Saturday said their thoughts were with former President Nelson Mandela, who was in serious but stable condition after being taken to a hospital to be treated for a recurring lung infection. Mandela, who is 94, was treated in a hospital several times in recent months, with the last discharge coming on April 6 after doctors diagnosed him with pneumonia and drained uid from his Mandela lung area. He has been particularly vulnerable to respiratory problems since contracting tuberculosis during his 27-year imprisonment under apartheid. A small girl and her father stood outside Mandelas Johannesburg home with a stone on which was written a get-well message for Mandela, who helped end white racist rule and became the countrys rst black president in all-race elections in 1994. A young boy brought a bouquet of owers that he handed over to guards at the house. Elsewhere in the city, some worshippers prayed for Mandela during an outdoor gathering. If the time comes, we wish for him a good way to go, said Noel Ngwenya, a security ofcer who was in the congregation. During the past few days, former President Nelson Mandela has had a recurrence of lung infection, said a statement from the ofce of President Jacob Zuma. This morning at about 1:30 a.m., his condition deteriorated and he was transferred to a Pretoria hospital. It said Mandela was receiving expert medical care and doctors are doing everything possible to make him better and comfortable. Zuma wished Mandela a quick recovery on behalf of the government and the nation and requested that the news media and the public respect the privacy of the former leader and his family, the statement said. Mandelas wife, humanitarian activist Graca Machel, canceled an appearance at an international forum on hunger and nutrition in London on Saturday, citing personal reasons, said Colleen Harris, a spokeswoman for the meeting. Presidential spokesman Mac Maharaj said Machel had canceled her attendance at the London meeting on Thursday, and had accompanied Mandela to the hospital on Saturday morning.

Pakistan protests drones


Just days after taking power, Pakistans new government summoned a top U.S. envoy Saturday to lodge a protest over a U.S. drone strike, suggesting that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharifs team fully intends to make good on its promise to aggressively push for an end to such strikes. Friday nights drone strike near the Afghan border, which was said to have killed seven militants, came two days after Sharif was sworn in as premier and the same day his Cabinet members took their oaths.

SANTA MONICA, Calif. The gunman who went on a chaotic rampage killing four people before being fatally shot by police at a college campus planned the attack and was capable of ring 1,300 rounds of ammunition, the police chief said Saturday. Any time someone puts on a vest, of some sort, comes out with a bag full of loaded magazines, has an extra receiver, has a handgun and has a semi-auto-

matic rie, carjacks folks, goes to a college, kills more people and has to be neutralized at the hands of the police, I would say that thats premeditated, said Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks. The killer would have turned 24 on Saturday, but Seabrooks wouldnt identify him because his next of kin was out of the country. Police had an encounter with him seven years ago, but she wouldnt elaborate because he was a juvenile at the time. The chief spoke near a display of weapons and ammo recovered from Santa Monica College where the killings ended Friday when police fatally shot him in the library, where students were studying for nals.

Seabrooks called a safe room in the library and barricaded the door. They stacked items found in the safe room against the door, hunkered down and avoided shots red through the drywall at them while they were in that room, she said. The violence, which lasted little more than 10 minutes, started about a mile away when the gunman began shooting at a house, and it caught on re. Two bodies were later found inside. Two ofcials told The Associated Press that the killings began as a domestic violence incident and the victims in the home were the gunmans father and brother.

In storms, can too much advance warning be bad?


After deadly Okla. twister, forecasters debate how to best account for human behavior.
By SEAN MURPHY Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY The average tornado warning in the 1980s went out only after a twister was on the ground. Continuing advances in storm prediction have since enabled forecasters to warn people before a funnel cloud is upon them, giving them precious time to seek shelter. Our better understanding of the nature of tornadoes such as those that have ripped through Oklahoma several times over the past month, killing dozens of people and injuring hundreds more, has still saved countless lives. And our further understanding of such violent weather patterns will no doubt save even more. Some experts, though, acknowledge there is debate about whether there can be too much advance warning of tornado strike, and if this could lead people to take foolish risks such as trying to dart across town to pick up a loved one or taking to the open road to try to outrun a

AP PHOTO

A man stands on his car as it is ooded late last month in Oklahoma City. For decades, weather researchers have worked to give people as much warning as possible before a tornado or hurricane hits so that they have time to protect themselves. But there is debate over whether increasing lead time is always a good thing.

violent storm. Theres a great philosophical discussion about what constitutes the ideal lead time, said Greg Carbin, a warning coordination meteorologist for the National Weather Services Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla. The more lead time the better, but the ip side of that is that accuracy and certainty in our predictions usually decrease with lead time.

Over the last ve years, residents in the U.S. have been given an average lead time of 13 minutes between the issuance of a tornado warning and a conrmed tornado on the ground. Thats a 17-minute increase from the 1980s, when tornado warnings were typically issued four minutes after a funnel had been spotted, said Lans Rothfusv, who is deputy chief of the warning research and devel-

opment division at the National Severe Storms Laboratory in Norman. Rothfusv credited the change to major advancements in technology, especially the introduction of the Doppler radar on the forecasting scene in the early 1990s. So, is there a sweet spot or an ideal amount of warning time? While we strive for the longest warning time possible, the answer to that is: it depends, Rothfusv said. It depends on the individual needs or the group needs. Those in charge of hospitals, nursing homes or even stadiums lled with people, for example, would need signicantly more time to prepare than a family that simply needs to get into the basement. And while Rothfusv and other weather scientists will continue to work to increase warning times, they say nding the ideal amount of warning time must also involve the input of social scientists and experts in human behavior. For years weve been looking at this from the physical science side better radars and better science, but were at this inter-

face where nature and humans intersect, he said. What were getting to is realizing we need to understand better how people respond to warnings. Maybe we could give people one hour. We need to know what the response may be. When the widest tornado on record touched down May 31 about 30 miles west of Oklahoma City an EF5 storm packing 295 mph winds at the edge of a metro area with 1.2 million residents forecasters had already given residents nearly a half-hour to prepare for the threat. With the additional time, and with the May 20 EF5 tornado that killed 24 people in Moore, another Oklahoma City suburb, still fresh in their minds, many panicked residents opted to ee their homes, and interstates and roadways became gridlocked with people trying to outrun the

approaching storm. Many were encouraged by a local television meteorologist who warned viewers that if they couldnt get underground, they should leave the relative safety of their homes and drive south. They were saying that if you werent below ground, you werent going to survive it, (and) I was still shell-shocked from May 20, said Terri Black, a teachers assistant from Moore who left her home and ended up trapped in trafc during the May 31 storm. That was very instrumental in my decision (to ee). Twenty people died in the May 31 tornado and subsequent ooding, including several who were caught in their cars along a crowded interstate. For the tornado that hit Moore, forecasters gave 16 minutes notice before the twister touched down at Newcastle and moved northeast.

Weakened Andrea breaks Northeast rainfall records


By JAKE PEARSON Associated Press

NEW YORK The rst named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season smashed rainfall totals across the Northeast and pushed some streams and creeks over their banks but sped up the Eastern Seaboard without causing major damage. A weakened Andrea shifted away from New England on Saturday morning with winds gusting up to 45 mph. The storm was expected to reach Canadian waters by today. After bringing rain, strong winds and tornadoes to Florida, Andrea lost most of its tropical characteristics late Friday into Saturday. But it brought record rainfall for the date of June 7 for many cities and towns in the Northeast. Andrea dumped 6.64 inches of rain on Gales Ferry, Conn. The 4.16 inches that fell on New York Citys Central Park was more than double the previous record for the date, set in 1918. The 3.5 inches of rain that fell at Philadelphia International Airport doubled the 1.79 inches that fell in 1904. Newark, N.J., saw 3.71 inches, breaking the previous mark of 1.11 inches set in 1931.

Elsewhere, cars were submerged in oodwaters on Long Island, and about 50 residents were displaced by a rising stream in Chester, Pa. A retaining wall collapsed early Saturday in Manhattans Washington Heights neighborhood, sending an avalanche of rubble sliding into an apartment building and leaving three families homeless. The storm was blamed for one trafc-related death in Virginia. Late Friday, the National Hurricane Center in Miami discontinued all tropical storm warnings but cautioned about possible coastal and localized ooding from New Jersey to New England. Ofcials in the Mid-Atlantic region and Northeast had prepared for it Friday night. New York City activated its ash ooding plan, and heavy rainfall resulted in ash oods, causing some sections of roadways to be closed throughout Long Island. A number of roads were ooded in the Boston area. A ight that left Boston on Friday night headed to Palm Beach, Fla., was diverted to Newark Liberty International Airport after being struck by lightning. No one was injured.

Giant leap toward NASA Armstrong center?


Site by Mojave Desert where rst man on moon was a test pilot may be renamed for him.
By ALICIA CHANG AP Science Writer

LOS ANGELES Neil Armstrongs name is attached to a lunar crater, an asteroid, more than a dozen schools and a museum, but not a single NASA facility is christened in honor of the man whose giant leap made him the rst to walk on the moon. All that could soon change on the fringes of the Mojave Desert, where leaders at the space agencys top ight research center are mulling the consequences of a proposed name change at the place where Armstrong was a test pilot. The push by some in Congress to strike the name of former NASA executive Hugh Dryden from the facility has brought with it some questions: Is it justied to substitute one accomplished gure for another? At a time of squeezed budgets, is it worth the cost? And, besides: How long before the next space hotshot upends the worlds rst moonwalker? Managers at the Dryden Flight Research Center have no say in what theyre called nal approval rests with the U.S. House and Senate and so they have left the soul-searching to others. Im happy with the name Dryden Flight Research Center, but Ill be equally happy with Armstrong, center Director David McBride said. Both men were leaders in the eld. Though not a done deal, brainstorming is already under way: Welcome signs bearing the Dryden logo would have to be updated. Research aircraft would need their sides repainted. Letterhead and pamphlets would have to be recycled. And then theres the obligatory dedication ceremony. Dryden ofcials have not calculated a total makeover cost but dont foresee extra funds, meaning they would have to work

within their $65 million operating budget to pay for the changes. It wouldnt be the rst rebranding of a Armstrong NASA facility. In 1999, the Lewis Research Center in Ohio named for George Lewis, the rst executive ofcer of NASAs predecessor agency was changed to the John H. Glenn Research Center, after the rst American to orbit Earth and former senator. A daylong celebration was held, complete with an F-16 yover and a parade lled with oats, marching bands and a cameo appearance by Glenn. Any festivities marking a Dryden-to-Armstrong swap would likely be more muted to save money. A name switch often occurs to raise a centers prole and is not unlike what happens at universities, which shufe the nameplate on buildings and stadiums as memories fade and institutions try to cash in on a bigger celebrity or generous donor. Dryden had a tremendous inuence on the original space program, said American University space policy professor Howard McCurdy. Still, he added: With few exceptions, time diminishes everyones legacy. The Dryden moniker has existed since 1976. Before that the center, located on the grounds of Edwards Air Force Base about 90 miles north of Los Angeles, was not named for a specic person. It was here where the sound barrier was broken and where the now-retired space shuttle eet once landed. Experimental jets routinely buzz the skies. Between 1955 and 1962, Armstrong was a test pilot at the facility then called the High-Speed Flight Station. He logged 2,400 hours of ight there, including on the X-15 rocketplane that opened

the way for manned spaceight. Less of a household name, Dryden was a child prodigy who enrolled in college at age 14. An aerospace engineer, he served as director of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, the predecessor to NASA, and later as the space agencys rst deputy administrator. He died in 1965; four years later, Armstrong stepped on the moon. After the House in late February voted unanimously for a Neil A. Armstrong Flight Research Center, Dryden ofcials started a checklist of signs that would need replacing on buildings, highway exits and aircraft. This is the second attempt at a name change by Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy, whose district includes Dryden. The measure is awaiting consideration in the Senate, which failed to act last year. Some in Congress have questioned the idea, given the scal climate. I doubt in this era of declining funding for NASA that either Neil Armstrong or Hugh Dryden would want a single precious dollar to be spent on a cosmetic facility name change when that money could be spent instead on fullling NASAs mission to reach for the stars, Rep. Donna Edwards, D-Maryland, said during the bills debate. Edwards nonetheless voted for bill. The Glenn Center spent about $260,000 on a new website, fresh signs and updated printed materials. To cut down on costs, employees were encouraged to use up the old letterhead when communicating with one another. At Dryden, McBride said the metal entrance sign greeting visitors would be replaced immediately if the name change gets nal approval, while other signs would have to wait. Most research aircraft would be rebranded as they come up for maintenance, except for the few that make frequent cross-country trips.

Nations natural gas supply spells trouble for nuke plants


By MICHAEL R. BLOOD and RAY HENRY Associated Press

LOS ANGELES The decision to close Californias San Onofre nuclear plant is the latest setback for an industry that seemed poised for growth not long ago. In Wisconsin, a utility shuttered its plant last month after it couldnt nd a buyer. In Florida and now California utilities decided it was cheaper to close plants rather than spend big money xing them and risk the uncertainty of safety reviews. Meanwhile, the low cost of natural gas is discouraging utilities from spending billions of dollars

and lots of time to build nuclear reactors. New technology allows drillers to extract more gas within the U.S., increasing the supply and pushing down prices. In states where utilities operate as monopolies, they are reluctant to ask their regulators for permission to build enormously expensive nuclear plants or even x old ones when it is so cheap to build gas-red plants. In places where utilities sell power into the open market, the low prices dont offset the nancial risk of building expensive and time-consuming nuclear plants.

The world has changed with natural gas prices being so low and so much gas being available for so long, said Mike Haggarty, a senior utility analyst for Moodys Investor Service. Industry supporters acknowledge the challenging economics but say nuclear power still has long-term possibilities. While the costs to build plants are enormous, once online, the fuel and operating costs are relatively low. And reactors can reliably produce power with little or no carbon emissions, said Steve Kerekes, a spokesman for the Nuclear Energy Institute, an industry lobbying group.

Plants red by gas cost much more to run when prices surge. When gas prices are low, thats great, Kerekes said. But a lot of people dont like to put all their energy eggs in one basket. On Friday, Southern California Edison announced it would close its San Onofre plant between San Diego and Los Angeles rather than x damaged equipment that critics said could never be safely replaced. Despite spending more than $500 million on repairs and replacement power, the utility, owned by Edison International, decided to call it quits. It faced

safety investigations and regulatory hurdles to restart the plant. In February, North Carolinabased Duke Energy Corp. decided to close the Crystal River nuclear plant in Florida after workers cracked a concrete containment building during an attempt to upgrade the plant in 2009. The containment building is supposed to prevent a release of radiation in case of an accident. An attempt to x the problem in 2011 resulted in more cracks.

Even working plants are being scuttled. Dominion Resources Inc. announced in October it would close the Kewaunee Power Station in Wisconsin because it couldnt nd a buyer. Dominion CEO Thomas F. Farrell II said the plants contracts to sell its electricity were ending while wholesale electricity prices are expected to remain low. The company is keeping reactors elsewhere in the country.

Booker ofcially joins race for Senate


By ANGELA DELLI SANTI Associated Press

NEWARK, N.J. Newark Mayor Cory Booker, who formally declared his candidacy for U.S. Senate on Saturday, now nds himself competing in a primary against like-minded Democratic congressmen that will be decided in mid-summer, when exceptionally low voter turnout threatens his early advantage. Booker made his candidacy ofcial at a news conference in New Jerseys largest city, which he has led since 2006. He is vying to ll the seat of U.S. Sen. Frank L a u t e n b e rg , who died MonBooker day at age 89. Reps. Frank Pallone and Rush Holt are also planning to enter the Democratic primary. Candidates have until 4 p.m. Monday to le petitions with the secretary of state. Booker, 44, said he would travel the state to earn every vote. Hell have to hurry; Gov. Chris Christie set the primary for Aug. 13 and a special election for the balance of Lautenbergs term for Oct. 16. We need someone in the United States Senate whos actually had to work on difcult problems, whos actually had to nd people jobs, whos actually had people standing in front of their homes and had to work on everything from getting people into food stamp programs to helping young people better afford college, Booker said Saturday. A second kickoff event was planned later in the day in the predominantly minority municipality of Willingboro in South Jersey. Pallone and Holt have yet to announce formal plans. Experts say the race could be an interesting one. It will be a question of who can get organizational support from county parties or labor support from those who will knock on doors and get people out to vote, said political analyst Patrick Murray of Monmouth University. Booker has the national prole and Pallone has more money banked $3.7 million to Bookers $1.9 million, as of the end of March.

Crayola marker recycling to begin


By MARIA SUDEKUM Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Crayola has announced a new program for recycling its plastic markers, a move that comes about a year after a group of schoolchildren petitioned the crayon maker to start such a program. Crayola, a subsidiary of Kansas City-based Hallmark Cards, says under its ColorCycle program students in kindergarten through 12th grade can collect their used plastic markers, box them up and send them to a recycling facility. Crayola will pay the shipping costs. The announcement comes about a year after a group of schoolchildren in San Rafael, Calif., started an online petition aimed at encouraging Easton-based Crayola to start a take-back program for usedup markers. Crayola said then that the company did not have the facilities or a process for a recycling program that would deal with the whole marker. Crayola spokeswoman Julie Lando said in an email Thursday that the company has for several years been looking for a way to recycle the entire marker, and the new program uses a process that can repurpose the whole marker into fuel. So far, 125 schools are participating in the ColorCycle program, which is expected to be ofcially launched later this summer, she said.

administrative position. Hunsinger and other ofcers were paid $35 an hour for working the details at football games, middle school dances, graduations and other events held by the Wyoming Valley West School District and Wyoming Seminary. The fee was increased from $20 after Hunsinger and Keiper raised a concern that the ofcers would be paid less when taxes were withheld under the policy enacted Jan. 29, 2009, according to the investigation that was released Thursday. It found that Hunsinger violated the policy the day after it went into effect and he and Keiper met with the mayor and Keating to discuss it. It determined that instead of paying the ofcers through the municipalitys payroll system so taxes could be withheld, Hunsinger endorsed at least 111 checks and paid the ofcers in cash, often leaving the money in an an envelope in his desk. The investigation identied a total of $31,190 in payments that did not go through the payroll system from the effective date of the policy until April of this year. Had Hunsinger still been working for Kingston, the investigation recommended his termination.

It also found Keipers continued service was untenable because of his complicity in the cash payments and his lack of candor and cooperation in the investigation that came about after Keating was informed in late April that the Wyoming Valley West School District paid some ofcers in cash for special security assignment. Keiper endorsed at least 31 checks in violation of the policy. He resigned effective May 29 after 37 years of service with the department and a 50day suspension was deducted from his accrued leave. In his statement, Hunsinger asked how it was possible he conspired with Keiper to cover up that ofcers were working the details. He maintained Keating saw the ofcers while attending the football games and that it was common knowledge they worked middle school dances. If the Internal Revenue Service looks into the payments and nds that taxes were required, Hunsinger and the other ofcers would gladly le an amended tax claim in order to pay whatever taxes might be owed, he said in his statement. He ended it by taking responsibility for ensuring that policies were followed. I also do not deny that after time this memo was not followed and things reverted back to the way they were done in the past. I accept responsibility for that, but do I deserve this? he asked. lar challenges. Yang said China is against all forms of hacking and cyberattacks.

AIMEE DILGER /THE TIMES LEADER

Hazleton City Councilman Jack Mundie is pushing for a new Luzerne County reassessment, saying many Hazleton area properties are selling far below their assessed values.

REASSESS
Continued from Page 1A

uP nEXT
Luzerne County Council members will discuss reassessment at their Tuesday meeting, which starts at 7:15 p.m. in the council meeting room at the county courthouse in Wilkes-Barre. Aug. 1 is the deadline to le property assessment appeals for 2014. Appeal forms are available on the assessment page of the county website, www.luzernecounty.org.

other county communities with stagnant property sales also are impacted by the delay in another countywide revaluation. As part of county councils promise to study the matter, county Assessment Ofce Director Tony Alu will brief council on options at Tuesdays council meeting. To test Mundies argument, The Times Leader analyzed the assessments of 150 properties that sold for more than $50,000 in May. Only 26 properties sold within 5 percent of their assessments, plus or minus. Seventy were purchased at amounts 5 percent to 52 percent below the assessed values, which could indicate they are assessed too high. Another 54 properties sold 5 percent to 348 percent above the assessments a sign the tax values are too low. Alu said hes been compiling his own sampling of county property sales over the past year and believes purchase prices are falling about 9.92 percent below assessments overall. His estimate is about the same as the states analysis of 2011 county sales and assessments released last year, which came up with a 9.4 percent gure. The similarity makes Alu believe economy-driven real estate sale declines are leveling off. If Alus hunch is correct, purchase prices will start rising again and more closely match assessments, making the tax values more accurate. The state had ranked Luzerne Countys assessments the most accurate of all 67 counties in 2009 and 2010. Im hoping that we hit the low point and are starting to rebound. Only time will tell, said Alu. Thats why Im religiously monitoring this. County Councilman Stephen A. Urban, who voted for the last reassessment as a county commissioner, agrees with Mundie that a new revaluation is warranted. While Alus expectation of growth might hold true in some parts of the county, Urban doesnt believe real estate purchase prices will bounce back in Hazleton and some other urban pockets, leaving reassessment as the only way to make wholesale corrections. A reassessment also would elevate assessments in neighborhoods that have experienced healthy real estate sales since the last revaluation, which was based on sales from 2004 through 2007, Urban said. Property owners have the right to le appeals if appraisals and comparisons to other similar properties in their neighborhood indicate their assessments are too high, some county ofcials have emphasized. This option doesnt hold water with Mundie, who owns a tax accounting business. He said many property owners wont le appeals, including newcomers from several countries who are buying many of the properties in the countys southern half. A lot of people are intimidated and will not le an appeal unless somebody helps them, Mundie said. A lot of them think they need a lawyer. The last reassessment cost $8 million and was more involved

because the values had not been updated since 1965. The next reassessment is supposed to be completed in-house and cost signicantly less, ofcials said. Alu estimates the cost will range from $1 million to $2 million. Outside expertise would be needed to analyze sales and develop formulas to assign assessments to properties within each neighborhood, he said. Temporary stafng also may be needed to process assessment appeals and eld questions from property owners, he said. Im not so positive I can do all that in-house, said Alu, who has a staff of 17, including himself. Ofcials also must consider the cost to property owners who are paying more than their share, Mundie said. The owner of the two-family Hazleton house purchased for $70,000, for example, pays $2,586 in property taxes at the current assessment and tax rates. The tax bill would be $1,330, or $1,256 less, if the assessment were around the purchase price. But Alu cautions against the presumption a reassessment will lower tax bills in Hazleton or any other municipality. Municipalities, school districts and the county are guaranteed the same property tax revenue after reassessment, Alu said. If the majority of assessments within a taxing body are reduced, millage rates would be increased to generate the same revenue, Alu said. Mundie said hes condent the county and each school district have growing and more in-demand neighborhoods that warrant assessment increases, which could offset reductions in ones struggling to attract property buyers. Alu questions if theres enough real estate market growth to warrant the expense of another revaluation. With the economy this way, the sales prices seem to be down everywhere. Its more likely everyone went down, but in that case its uniform, Alu said. And while random examples of sales-assessment comparisons can be telling, Alu said conclusions about fair market value should be drawn only from numerous examples of valid arms length transactions in which prudent and knowledgeable strangers willingly buy and sell properties in a competitive and open market. Last years state analysis, for example, was based on 3,200 sales in the county in 2011. The State Tax Equalization Board will release its next score on county sales and assessments this summer. Alu has advocated another reassessment if the values and sales are off 15 percent, plus or minus, but said the decision rests with the county manager and 11 elected council members. I have no opinion, said Alu. All I can do is provide the facts. Theyre the ones who have to consider everything and do the right thing.

a community room that hosts everything from support groups to yoga classes, a vision center where those in need can get tted with glasses at cost, a training kitchen where the visionimpaired can learn to work on a stove and sink and use specially designed carving knives (double-bladed so they slice the right thickness automatically) and a small stock of devices for the blind (talking clocks, talking scales and even talking telephone caller-ID machines) also for sale at cost. Now we serve Luzerne, Wyoming, Wayne and Pike counties, said Petrilla, 58. We have about 700 legally blind active cases, and thats only the tip of the iceberg, believe me. Many who qualify for services dont seek them out. How did an MMI Prep school grad who went straight from what was then Bloomsburg State College into the U.S. Navy pilot training program land here? Two things happened, Petrilla said. I was halfway through ight training when the war ended and they didnt need more pilots; they offered me a commission but said it would be on a ship. I only wanted to y. And I had the grades to go on to jets but I had a problem with rapid altitude changes. They said I had a deviated septum. So Petrilla ended up with an honorable discharge and in need of a job just as the executive director of the Hazleton Area Association for the Blind retired. Petrilla got the job in 1978, moving to the Wilkes-Barre Association six years later when that executive director retired, spending nights and weekends getting his masters degree and doctorate. He never left. I think they thought theyd have to carry me out in a body bag, he chuckled. Petrilla, married to a teacher at Hazleton Area High School and the father of four, isnt retiring to a life of leisure. Im not old enough to retire, and I dont golf, he quipped. Instead, hes taking a 15-year avocation adjunct teaching nights and weekends for Misericordia University (It keeps me sharp) to fulltime status. The timing is right, he said. I dont want my rear end to grow roots in this seat. But he has promised the associations board of directors hell stick around until a replacement is named and a full transition is completed. I anticipate they will use me quite a bit, he said with another chuckle, because they dont have to pay me. Petrilla takes no credit for the associations growth during his tenure. I have a great staff, he said. I have one talent: I know my limitations and I know enough to surround myself with people who make up for my limitations. While hes happy to show off all the services in the building, he beams when discussing the summer camp being offered to children.

Im just so proud of the camping program we were able to institute since moving in this building, he said. You dont get a lot of thank-yous in this business. You never cure the blindness. You dont always recognize the progress of a client, until you work with kids. We have a graduation ceremony where each one of them gives a little speech. Each one gets up, and they really lay it on the line, how we made them feel, how they feel about themselves now. His voice takes on a wistful tone. You havent lived until youve been hugged by those kids. Reminded that he surely had plenty of hugs from his own kids, he grins again. That was my job, raising my kids. This is a pleasure. Asked what advice he would give his successor, Petrilla had no trouble coming up with an answer. Really embrace change, he said, And dont set up a comfortable system for yourself. Embrace partnerships. There are many organizations that look at this as being in competition for resources, and we have to work together.

NSAs actions. Abraham Ismail, a 25-year-old software designer taking advantage of the free Wi-Fi outside a Starbucks in Raleigh, N.C., said in retrospect, fears had prompted Americans to give up too much privacy. It shouldnt be so just effortless, he said, snapping his ngers for emphasis, to pull peoples information and get court orders to be able to database every single call, email. I mean, its crazy. The clash between security and privacy is far from new. In 1878, it played out in a court battle over whether government ofcials could open letters sent through the mail. In 1967, lines were drawn over government wiretapping. Government used surveillance to ferret out Communists during the 1950s and to spy on Martin Luther King and other civil rights leaders during the 1960s. But in earlier times, courts, lawmakers and the public eventually demanded curbs on such watching. Those efforts

didnt stop improper government monitoring, but they restrained it, said Christian Parenti, author of The Soft Cage: Surveillance in America from Slavery to the War on Terror. The difference now, he and other experts say, is that enormous advances in personal technology and the publics broad tolerance of monitoring because of shifting attitudes about terrorism and online privacy have given government and private companies signicantly more power and leeway to monitor individual behavior. The tolerance of government monitoring stems in large part from the wave of fear that swept the country after the 2001 attacks, when Americans granted ofcials broad new powers under the PATRIOT Act. But those attitudes are nuanced and shifting. In a 2011 poll by The Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, 54 percent of those surveyed felt protecting citizens rights and freedoms should be a higher priority for the government than keeping people safe from terrorists. At the same time, 64 percent said it was sometimes necessary to sacrice some rights and freedoms to ght terrorism. Whenever something like 9/11 happens, it does tend to cause people to change their minds, Richards said. But I think whats interesting is it has to be a long-term conversation. We cant, whenever were scared, change the rules forever. But up until now, theres been only limited debate about where and how to redraw the lines on surveillance. At the same time, explosive growth in social networking, online commerce, smart-phone technology and data harvesting for targeted marketing have introduced many Americans to all sorts of rich new experiences and conveniences. People have become enamored with the newest technology and media without giving hard thought to the risks or tradeoffs, experts say.

sor at Washington Universitys School of Law in St. Louis who studies privacy law and civil liberties. Theres much more watching and much more monitoring, and I think we have a series of important choices to make as a society about how much watching we want. But the only way to make those choices meaningful, he and others said, is to lift the secrecy shrouding the watchers. I dont think that people routinely accept the idea that government should be able to do what it wants to do, said Marc Rotenberg, president of the Electronic Privacy Information Center. Its not just about privacy. Its about responsibility and you only get to evaluate that when government is more public about its conduct. The NSA, ofcials acknowl-

LIVING BY THE
But Wudang Academy teaches a peaceful way

An immigrant
By JOE SYLVESTER jsylvester@timesleader.com

dees the odds in The Ragman


THE RAGMAN Author: Joseph Schillaci Publisher: RoseDog Books, an imprint of Dorrance Publishing Co. Inc., Pittsburgh Available: www.rosedogbookstore. com Joseph Schillaci of West Pittston thought the generations who followed him should know about his own father, the son of a Sicilian immigrant who went against all odds and became an American success story. So Schillaci, who turns 59 this week and owns an Avoca promotional advertising rm, talked to family and friends Schillaci of his father, Rocco Schillaci, a garmentfactory owner who died in a car accident in 1985 at age 53. Schillaci also learned about the dress industry rsthand and his father when he worked with his dad for more than 15 years. Schillaci said he learned from his father to treat employees with respect. That respect won the loyalty of most of the workers. He wrote down all he learned in book form, then stuck it in a drawer. After several years, he rediscovered it and decided to have it published. The result is The Ragman, a 52page homage to the elder Schillaci. Times Leader: What made you decide to write this book? Joseph Schillaci: To bring the history to my ancestors. Originally I wrote it as a family-tree type thing, then I thought what a great idea to write about the son of an immigrant, the success of a son of an immigrant. TL: What was the research process like? Did you talk to a lot of family and friends? J.S.: Sitting with ancestors that were still alive and working with my dad, working shoulder to shoulder with my dad. For stories about his childhood, I sat with his sister, brother. TL: How long did it take you to write? J.S.: Start to nish, it probably took about ve years. I started out on looseleaf paper, writing down old stories, then I just put it together in a binder, put it in a drawer. My dad read it. After the ood of 2011, I pulled it out of the drawer. I thought, I should nd a publisher for this. TL: Did you try other publishers? J.S.: No. (He decided to go to a vanity press and just pay to have it published.) TL: How much did you have to pay to have it published? J.S.: About $2,500. We got a half dozen complimentary copies then got the opportunity to request copies to send to certain people. They have a great extensive marketing plan within a 60to 100-mile radius. They sent copies to

IF YOU GO
What: Wudang Swordsmen Academy Where: 269 S. Washington St., Wilkes-Barre Call: 570-630-0088 Partial class schedule: Tai chi at 6 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays; kung fu at 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Dang translates to achieve. What do you teach? In addition to swordsmanship, we also offer training in traditional Wudang martial arts, Daoist longevity practices and health and tness programs. The academy focuses on the material and ideals that often characterize a swordsman. What is Daoism? Daoism is the indigenous religion and cultural mindset of the Chinese people, which has been developing for more than 4,000 years. The Daoist priests, priestesses, monks and nuns over these millennia have developed numerous health practices, medical studies, cosmological observations, laws of physics and nature, dietary practices and martial arts.

f you see Xia Chongyi teaching tai chi or kung fu or maybe taking his rescue dog, Leon, for a walk, your eye might be drawn to his hairstyle a thick top knot divided into two sections to resemble a bulls nostrils. A pin placed through the knot is like a ring through a bulls nose, Chongyi said, and it represents that youre being guided by heaven. That tradition is just one of the many facets of Chinese culture and Daoist philosophy that Chongyi, a former movie stunt person who grew up in Pennsylvania, is happy to explain and share, along with martial-arts classes at the Wudang Swordsmen Academy he recently established on South Washington Street in downtown Wilkes-Barre. Now before you get excited about the idea of working with swords, please note you have to start with the basics to make sure youre ready.

Q&A
What is Wudang? The Wudang Mountains are the mountain range where a distinctive Daoist culture cultivated martial arts and health practices for thousands of years in China. They are most famous for their swordplay. What does Wudang mean? Wu translates to wisdom, and

Simon Cowell still has a talent for relevance


By FRAZIER MOORE AP Television Writer

NEW YORK So whats new on TV? The new season of Americas Got Talent began at 9 p.m. Tuesday EDT. New judges include former Spice Girl Mel B. and supermodel/ personality Heidi Klum, who are joining forces with Howie Mandel and Howard Stern. New Yorks Radio City Music Hall is the spec-

tacular new venue. Even so, the roots of this NBC variety competition are steeped in TV antiquity, reaching back to the mediums infancy. It was on June 20, 1948, that The Ed Sullivan Show (then known as The Toast of the Town) began its 24 seasons of jugglers, opera singers, comedians, animal acts and (of course) Elvis Presley and the Beatles. It was also 65 years ago that The Original Amateur Hour moved to television after a successful run on

radio (its final CBS telecast was in 1970). The variety show was pronounced dead decades ago. And after The Gong Show in the 1970s and 80s, and Star Search, which folded in 1995, talent competitions also seemed kaput. But Simon Cowell has done his part to resurrect both genres. He was, of course, the tart-tongued judge when American Idol began its epoch-changing run on Fox in 2002. With his Syco Entertainment, he

now serves as a creator, producer and judge on Foxs The X Factor, which come fall starts its third season. And off-camera, he is the driving force of Americas Got Talent, now starting its eighth season. In a recent phone interview from his native London, the 53-year-old mega-impresario recalled enjoying talent shows like Opportunity Knocks and New Faces as a child. And he described how a few years

I cant believe the number of genealogyrelated events coming up Lets get started. The Rusyn Genealogy Conference is set for 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. June 22 at the Kings College Campus Center, 133 N. River St., Wilkes-Barre. The event is sponsored by the Carpatho-Rusyn Society, Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter.

And for those who might shy away from the idea of a sharp blade, Chongyi can teach you to use a non-violent weapon called a horse whisk. Crafted from the hairs of a horses tail, in skilled hands it can be used to disarm someone who might be threatening you with a sword. While his high-energy kungfu classes have been attracting mostly people in the 15-to-35 age range, Chongyi believes he has something for everyone, includBILL TARUTIS/FOR THE TIMES LEADER ing senior citizens.

Please dont confuse Rusyn and Russian, however. As any Rusyn will tell you, theyre two different ethnicities. CarpathoRusyns occupied land in Ukraine, Poland and Slovakia, land that was periodically invaded and seized. Heading the list of speakers will be John Righetti, president emeritus of the National Carpatho-Rusyn Society. Righetti said that many people of Rusyn descent including an estimated 30,000 in Northeastern Pennsylvania are not aware of their background because their ancestors claimed different ethnicities out of self-preservation. Northeastern Pennsylvania is still the fourth-largest settlement of Rusyns in the United States, he said. Righetti will be available to help attendees analyze their personal genealogical material to see if their ancestry is Rusyn rather than another eastern or central European one. Registration cost is $35,

with checks payable to the Carpatho-Rusyn Society, Eastern PA Chapter. Mail to Sharon Jarrow, 599 Fehr Road, Nazareth, Pa. 18064. Deadline is June 17. The societys website is www.carpathorusynsociety.org Are old Geman records giving you ts? Thursday will see the increasingly popular German Round Table, sponsored by the Northeast Pennsylvania Genealogical Society. This edition will focus on St. Nicholas Roman Catholic Church and St. Pauls Lutheran Church, both of Wilkes-Barre. N. Doug Nichol and Roseann Kebles will explain how to transcribe and translate those difcult-to-read but highly crucial old German church records. The event, 5-8 p.m., is free for society members, with a $5 fee for non-members. The event will be held at the societys library, on the grounds of the Hanover Green Cemetery, Main Road, Hanover Township. To ensure a seat, contact the society at nepgsmail@gmail. com. Previous German round tables have lled up quickly. Youll have a chance to meet some authors of local historical works when the Wyoming County Historical Society holds Founders Day. The event is set for 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on June 22. The society is located at Bridge and Harrison streets, Tunkhannock. Authors available for book signings will include Deborah

Courville, A River in Time; Julie Orlandini, widow of John Orlandini, Indian Paths of Northeastern Pennsylvania and Their Role in the French and Indian War; and G. Bert Stevenson, John Henry Stevenson and Ella Stevenson Haley, Our Back Mountain Families. Tours of the museum and genealogical library will be available. Heres a date you should denitely reserve. The annual commemoration of the 1778 Battle of Wyoming will be held at 10 a.m. on July 4 at the Wyoming Monument, Route 11, Wyoming. More later. Newspaper Update: One of the most useful tools for researching the Pittston area is the old Pittston Gazette newspaper, published variously as a weekly and daily between 1850 and 1965. By July there should be an operating search mechanism for the 1850-1906 issues, which are now available for reading via a link from the West Pittston Historical Society website. Our goal is to get it all online on Pa. Access, said Mary Portelli, society president. But its going to take three or four more years of grants. The societys website is www.westpittstonhistory.org. The site also contains 19thcentury maps of the borough and historical and genealogical forums. PA Access, formally known as Access Pennsylvania, is a union catalogue of Pennsylvania library holdings. Its website is www.accesspa.state.pa.us.

10-million audition. I cant stop thinking about it. The talent-show derby has been dominated in recent months by the hearty performance of NBCs The Voice (whose producers include reality mogul Mark Burnett) and the ratings erosion of American Idol, whose judging panel Cowell exited three years ago. Asked the most important thing he focuses on, Cowell didnt pause before replying, relevancy. Somebody once said to me, Disco died in the 70s. Those words haunt me. You have to stay relevant in EACH decade. But how? I listen. I listen to people whove had more experience than me. And I listen to 16- and 17-year-olds. Im not threatened by someone who knows more than me. I just want them to TELL me! I love learning new things, said the man worldfamous for his on-the-air outspokenness. Id rather listen than talk.

stores and libraries. TL: Whats the reaction been like from family and friends? J.S.: Well, you know families, most times they know the story. They said thats accurate, thats right on. My nephew got one complimentary copy. He said, Read the book, heard all the stories. TL: In your research, did you nd out something that most surprised you about your father? JS: I cant say there was anything I didnt know before. When I sat down and read the book, I realized it was his personality that made him successful. He was a people person; if you knew him, you liked him. There is a story about his going to meet the jobbers in New York for the rst time. They gave him work because they liked him; they gave him machinery on consignment. They gave him a building because they liked him.

ago, amid the boom of singing competitions, he hatched the idea for the broader-based talent show Americas Got Talent emerged as. He was watching a singing show in Britain when a contestant warbled a too-familiar song, and very badly, and I remember thinking: Id actually rather watch a dancing dog than listen to her. Then I said to myself, I used to LOVE that kind of show! Why dont we bring back that type of show again? So he did. Americas Got Talent (the rst in Cowells global Got Talent franchise, with original versions of the format now produced in 56 territories) premiered in 2006. And last year (ttingly) a dog act, Olate Dogs, won the $1 million prize. Cowell is expectedly bullish about the season ahead. The new panel has jelled

very well. Theres really good chemistry with the judges and the host (Nick Cannon), he said. He also sang the praises of the series new producer, Sam Donnelly. Shes totally revitalized the American show. Its by far the best weve done. Of course, AGT is hardly Cowells only project, even in the United States. Come fall, The X Factor returns on Fox after two seasons of conspicuously falling short of what the audience was led to expect. Will its third be the charm? If youd asked me that question even a month ago, Cowell replied, I would have said I honestly dont know. But recent auditions in Charleston, S.C., were by far the best two days weve shot since the series began, he declared. It suddenly just clicked. And theres one audition in particular thats probably one of my favorites that Ive ever been involved in a one-in-

Easy Rawlins hard to write off


detective (and small-time real estate mogul) drove his car off a cliff on the Pacic Coast Highway, his murderous friend, Raymond Mouse Alexander played by Don Cheadle in Devil in a Blue Dress found Easy among the hillside bushes and saved his friends life. Still, as Little Green gets going, our protagonist is all but dead. As he comes to consciousness in 1967, he agrees to do a job to pay back Mouse, who is keenly interested in nding a teenage boy gone missing somewhere in the neighborhood of the Sunset Strip. To Mouse, the boy is known as Little Green, a sobriquet that will tie this book back to Devil, as it turns out. And though hed be better off staying in bed, Rawlins takes the job. He immediately comes into contact with racist cops in an evolving post-Watts Los Angeles where blacks are beginning to feel empowered. Little Green also drops the middleaged sleuth into the hippiesex-and-drugs counterculture, only the former of which he is willing to participate in. The story sends Easy to see Mama Jo, a voodoo-potion priestess who predicted that he would rise, Lazarus-like, from the cliffside grave. She xes him up with a supply of an elixir known as Gators Blood that is sort of a black magic 5-Hour Energy drink. Little Green is a book about resurrection, and little by little, as he interacts with his family, friends, close associates and sworn enemies in various social strata of L.A., Easy Rawlins comes alive. And just as Easy is invigorated, nally feeling completely himself when a gun pointed at his chest lls him with a familiar fear of death, so is Mosley renewed in Little Green. As Rawlins nds himself back in the world where nothing ever turned out right but it kept right on turning anyway, the author is rejuvenated right along with him. (In that staggering, prolic way that successful mysteryseries writers have, Mosley has already completed a follow-up to Little Green.) Little Green is a pageturner, but not a perfectly taut one. Its over-plotted, tying an extortion storyline involving a Los Angeles-based French insurance company into a story about drugs, greed, and guns. Mosley also uses the lame device of prolonging the mystery in the book by conveniently having the title character suffer from LSD-induced amnesia. But the author does fans of gritty, sharply observed, historical crime ction a big favor by bringing Easy Rawlins

Little Green by Walter Mosley; Doubleday (291 pages, $25.95)

t the conclusion of his 2007 novel Blonde Faith, Walter Mosley did away with Ezekiel Easy Rawlins. After 11 volumes featuring the African-American World War II veteran and thinking mans detective, through whose eyes the social history of postwar Los Angeles unfolded, Mosley decided he had had enough. Im nished with that, Mosley, whos written more than 40 books, told CNN in 2009, when he was promoting a new series with a New Yorkbased private dick named Leonid McGill. Im moving on.

He immediately comes into contact with racist cops in an evolving postWatts Los Angeles where blacks are beginning to feel empowered. Little Green also drops the middle-aged sleuth into the hippie-sex-anddrugs counterculture, only the former of which he is willing to participate in.
back. And he does himself a solid, as well, because as much as Mosley might have grown sick of his creation, his familiar protagonist turns out to have plenty more hard-boiled life in him. In Little Green, hes a richly complex family man, crime-solver and deal-maker with a Southern-born black mans perspective on the 1960s social upheaval unfolding before him. Mosley would have been foolish to kill him off: Characters as rich as Easy Rawlins are hard to come by.

Not so fast, Mosley. Like Arthur Conan Doyle after he sent Sherlock Holmes tumbling off Reichenbach Falls, or more recently Ian Rankin attempting to put John Rebus out to pasture, the author has found that icing Easy who debuted in Devil in a Blue Dress in 1990 and was indelibly played by Denzel Washington in the 1995 lm of the same name was easier (sorry) said than done. So, at the start of Little Green, which has a colorcoded title like all the Rawlins mysteries save the 1997 prequel Gone Fishin (a bildungsroman set during Easys boyhood in Texas), theres Easy, rising out of a coma. I came half awake, dead and dreaming, are the rst words of the book. It turns out that after the

Guatemala: Stay safe with careful planning


ANTIGUA, Guatemala Everyone told me not to go. Even a friend who lived in Guatemala for six months advised me against going. I planned the trip and canceled it twice. But in the end I let my travelers instincts persuade me that it couldnt be that bad. And for the most part, Guatemala seemed safer to me than what I expected. With common-sense precautions and careful planning, I minimized risks and was able to enjoy one of the most fascinating and affordable countries Ive ever visited.
Guatemala has an alarming rate of homicides. Newspaper front pages often show images of covered dead bodies with police hovering nearby. But most of those crimes happen in the capital, Guatemala City. With that in mind, and the fact that Guatemala City has few tourist attractions, I skipped it altogether. Arriving in the sleek La Aurora airport on the outskirts of the capital, we were whisked away by our waiting driver to Antigua, the countrys former capital, and its most popular tourist destination. Antigua is built on a grid of cobblestone streets and boasts one of the best collections of Spanish colonial buildings in the Americas. Strolling around at night to see the colonial churches lit up is a must. By day, you can go into many of those buildings, some of which were damaged in the citys earthquakes during the last three centuries. We ventured out to nearby Finca Filadela, a coffee farm and resort that offers plantation tours. Guatemalas volcanic soil produces some of the worlds best coffee. The Finca tour was an in-depth look at how coffee beans are planted, harvested, selected and roasted, then shipped all over the world. Another highlight of Antigua was climbing the active Pacaya volcano, a steep but easy two-hour hike. From Antigua, we took a twohour shuttle to our next destination: Lake Atitlan in the western highlands. Often compared to Italys Lake Como, Atitlan is surrounded by several volcanoes that make the scenery breathtaking. The biggest town is Panajachel, which you can skip altogether, opting instead to stay at one of the smaller Mayan villages around the lake. We stayed in Santa Cruz La Laguna, which is only reachable by a 20-minute, $1.50 motorboatride from Panajachel. The longest boat ride on the lake is between Panajachel and Santiago Atitlan and takes almost an hour. In Santiago, we ventured out to seek Maximon, a curious Mayan deity, whose efgy is housed in a different, secret building every year. Enterprising locals will offer to take you to see Maximon for a couple of dollars. While I was certainly skeptical, once located, Maximon proved to be fascinating. We watched as pious Mayans presented Maximon with bottles of Coca-Cola, beer and whiskey, seeking solutions to their problems. The offerings, we were told, are sold off and the money is used for local projects. From Lake Atitlan, we took a one-hour shuttle ($12) to Chichicastenango. Famed for its expansive local crafts market, Chichicastenango is the place where you can shop for colorful Guatemalan textiles. They come in an incredible variety of blankets, shawls, backpacks, throws, wall hangings, and shirts. Remember to haggle anything down to at most half of what you are quoted. Be rm but also bear in mind that sometimes the difference is $1 so know when to let go and just pay. With the post-Columbian sights behind us, it was time for the Mayan ruins of Tikal in the countrys north. . Our hotel in Antigua recommended a local guide to us in the region and he accompanied us throughout our two days there. We followed his suggestion and kept Tikal for our last day, choosing to spend our rst one in Yaxha, a smaller Mayan site that was the setting for the reality TV show Survivor: Guatemala. On our last day, we started at 6 a.m. to beat the crowds to Tikal, one of the best-preserved Mayan sites in the world. Spread over 220 square miles, Tikal encompasses thousands of structures in addition to a primary tropical forest and a variety of wildlife. It boasts stunning architectural constructions such as Temple I, which has become a symbol of Guatemala. No visit to any country is ever complete without experiencing the local food. While the variety of local dishes isnt huge, dont leave Guatemala without trying pepian, a spicy brown-sauce chicken stew that is a national dish. Fried chicken acionados will revel in the joys of the famous local fast-food chain Pollo Campero. You are never too far from a location. Once you try it, you will understand why Guatemalans carry sealed boxes of the delicious stuff from the Guatemala City airport outlet all the way to their loved ones back in the U.S. Finally, to cool off, try licuado, a cold drink made with fresh fruit that is ubiquitous in the country.

If You Go
GETTING THERE: American, Delta, Spirit and United Airlines offer nonstop ights to La Aurora International Airport in Guatemala City from U.S. hubs. TACA ies twice daily between La Aurora and Mundo Maya Airport in Flores, the gateway to Tikal and north Guatemala. HOTEL AND GUIDES: Most hotels in Guatemala do not have their own websites and take their time replying to emails or phone reservation requests, so dont be alarmed if you dont hear back in a day or two. A good source for hotel recommendations is the Moon travel guidebook. We enjoyed stays at Posada del Cerro on Calle Jobompiche near Tikal, mailto(at)posadadelcerro.com or 502-5376-8722; Isla Verde on Lake Atitlan, a hillside, eco-cabin hotel, http://islaverdeatitlan. com , and Posada San Sebastian in Antigua, 502-7832-2621 or snsebast(at)hotmail.com. Ask your hotel to recommend local tour guides and safe transportation. An excellent English-speaking guide and driver in Tikal and Yaxha was Israel Lima, 5025713-1418 or israellima1972(at) hotmail.com. FINCA FILADELFIA: Coffee farm tours and resort: http:// www.ladela.com.gt . CASH AND CURRENCY: ATMs are abundant but take precautions by using machines in well-lit locations and stash your cash quickly in multiple pockets. Daily limit of $250 per card. Prices for tours, hotels, etc. are often quoted in U.S. dollars. You can pay in U.S. dollars or the local currency, quetzals (about eight quetzals to $1).

ABoVE: The colorful cemetery in Chichicastenango is pictured, where graves carry symbols of the Mayan and Catholic faiths. Chichicastenango is also famed for an expansive local crafts market. ToP: Lake Atitlan, in Guatemalas western highlands, is shown surrounded by volcanoes Tomilan and Atitlan. Tourists can spend a day shuttling on local boats between the lakes small towns, each of which has a particular character.

Edwards wants to make some noise


By JOHN ERZAR jerzar@timesleader.com

Pocono Raceway, Long Pond Length: 160 laps/400 miles Radio: MRN Weather forecast: Mostly sunny with a high of 78 and a 10 percent chance of precipitation

LONG POND For a guy who likes to talk, Carl Edwards wants to make some more noise. Pocono Raceway could be the place. Thats because while his season on paper looks terrific, his season behind the wheel of the No. 99 Ford hasnt been. Ive thought about that a lot, Edwards said. We talk about the struggles were having and then

I think Wow, were second in points. That can sometimes be a false sense of security. Ive been a lot Edwards worse in points and been having more fun, Ill tell you that. Were not dominating races, leading laps and winning races, and thats what its about.

Todays Party in the Poconos 400 presented by Walmart could make for a fun 160 laps for Edwards, who will start alongside NASCAR Sprint Cup points leader Jimme Johnson in the front row when the green flag drops at approximately 1 p.m. Edwards has won here twice in June 2005 and August 2008. He dominated the June 2009 race, leading 103 laps before finishing second. Except for

a couple glitches, the 2.5-mile trioval has been one his best tracks. Then again, thats where the problem exists this year. Edwards best tracks in the past havent been his best tracks in 2013. If we can figure those things out, Edwards said. This track is like that. Its a fast track; its an aero track. Were just missing

MIAMI The NBA Finals. Just being here can be memorable and miserable. And surprise, its those supposedly stoic Spurs who are having more fun, while the South Beach bunch is a little grumpy and grouchy. The Miami Heat may be on top of the basketball world, but theres no joy unless they stay there. Playoffs aint fun, man. Im sorry to bust anyone on the outsides bubble, Dwyane Wade said. As a player in the playoffs, you have no joy until its over and you won. If you dont win, you have no joy for a while.

Brotherly love on draft day


By DAVE ROSENGRANT | drosengrant@timesleader.com

Last week, hundreds of Major League hopefuls got a phone call that they were selected in the 2013 edition of the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft. Those youngsters most likely got the thrill of a lifetime and enjoyed one of the best days of their lives during the events three days and 40 rounds.

Our weekly look at the work of RailRiders president Rob Crain, who has given us back our baseball with a side order of promotions and entertainment. BEST OF THE WEEK: The Mini Pillow Pet Giveaway on Saturday night appeared to be popular with the young fans even though it could have been a tough pitch. Of all the animals you probably dont wat to use as a pillow, a porcupine is likely at or near the top of the list. It was another week of few home games, making the giveaway part of what would have been a banner day regardless. The Allied Jersey Auction was also Saturday, raising money for a good cause. MISSED OPPORTUNITY: Well, what can we say? Last month, when Bark In The Park night was held, we wondered why other animals werent getting their day/night at PNC Field. Before you could say purrrrrrrfect, the Wilmington (Del.) Blue Rocks hosted Purr In The Park night on Tuesday against the Carolina Mudcats. The Blue Rocks, the Class A-Adv. affiliate of the Kansas City Royals, won the game 3-1 and made national headlines. NBC News had a report with the headline, Take meow to the ball game: cool cats to watch baseball. NBC noted that Wilmington is only the second minor league team to have a day for felines the State College Spikes of the NY-Penn League (Class A short season) have hosted two nights for cats. According to the report, State College had 11 cats in attendance for the inaugural event in 2011. WDEL Radio reported 12 cats at Wilmington last week on a 75-degree day. Maybe more dogs turn out for Bark In The Park, but the cats deserve their turn. More will come out as long as such promotions continue. COMING UP: Theres three more games with Buffalo before the RailRiders go back on the road. All the usual staples are in place Sunday, Family FUNday; Monday, $1 hot dogs; 2 for 1 Tuesday. Monday is also Youth Softball Night, appropriately honoring our youngsters who play on teams throughout the region on the night Holy Redeemer bids for its first trip to the PIAA Class 2A softball championship game. If youre not heading to Allentown for a high school game, take your daughters to the ballpark and enjoy the discounted eats.

crAIN GAME

WEEK AHEAD
Heres a look at the upcoming week for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: Theres only two teams on SWBs schedule this week and both squads the Buffalo Bisons and Lehigh Valley IronPigs squared off last week. Its a big week for the RailRiders because both teams are ahead of them in the standings and if they are going to make up ground in the I.L. North, now is a good opportunity.

Buffalo Bisons

There are three games in the series with the top affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays from today through Tuesday. The Bisons offense packs a punch with four hitters batting over .300, including Jim Negrych, who leads the I.L. with a .356 average beginning the weekend. They also have power in Mauro Gomez (15 home runs) and Luis Jimenez (13). Jimenez has a team-leading 52 runs batted in and sports a .338 batting average. His OPS stands at 1.007 entering play Saturday. Buffalo entered the weekend in second place in the North Division, 3 1/2 games behind front-running Pawtucket.

Lehigh Valley IronPigs

It was a lot of fun. It was a lot of exciting times for me and my family and my brother as well. It was like a celebration both days. It was a lot of hard work that paid off in the early stages of our career and a lot of excitement.

On May 21, RailRiders outfielder Thomas Neal announced on Twitter that he is donating $20 for every hit he compiles from then until the Triple-A All-Star Game on July 17 at Reno to the victims of the deadly tornado in Moore, Okla. The RailRiders are also matching Neals contributions. When Neal started action on May 21, his average was .323. Since then, his average has risen to .327 and was at a highwater mark of .359 on May 31 after hitting safely in nine of 10 games. SWB games remaining until All-Star Game: 38 Total hits: 19 in 16 games (through Friday) Hits last week: 4 (through Friday) On pace for: 58 hits Total contributions by Neal and the RailRiders: $760

The rivalry has picked up over the years and when the teams meet on Thursday at Allentowns Coca Cola Park to start a four-game series, it will be the first of 12 meetings this season. In the rivalry between Scranton/WilkesBarre and Lehigh Valley, SWB has historically owned the `Pigs, holding a 48-32 record in the series. The IronPigs have won just one season series, going 9-7 in 2010. The RailRiders could be in for a few surprises this weekend when they travel down the Pennsylvania Turnpike as a few injured Phillies could be set for rehab assignments at that time in Chase Utley and Carlos Ruiz. That is just speculation, and so is the possibility that Carlos Zambrano, who signed a minor league contract with Philadelphia last month, could pitch for Lehigh Valley during the series. Cody Overbeck leads the team with 11 home runs and Cody Asche has knocked in 38, eight more than any other IronPig. The IronPigs have also been hot recently. Since being a season-low eight games under .500 at 16-24 on May 16, they have gone 14-7 since. They are now third in the North Division, six games behind first-place Pawtucket. All four games of this series will be broadcast on Service Electric cable and on WYLN-35.

NEW YORK In the longest major league game in more than three years, Adeiny Hechavarria hit an RBI single in the 20th inning and the Miami Marlins outlasted the New York Mets 2-1 on Saturday, well after Matt Harvey left with lower back tightness following another stingy start. Steve Cishek retired Daniel Murphy on a fly ball to the leftfield warning track for the final out of a game that took 6 hours, 25 minutes. It started 5 hours before the Belmont Stakes about 13 miles away and still ended around an hour after winner Palace Malice crossed the finish line. The last big league game to last as long also involved the Mets, according to STATS. It came when they beat St. Louis 2-1 in 20 innings on April 17, 2010.

The right-hander struck out seven in six innings. MILWAUKEE -- Jean Segura homered and Jonathan Lucroy hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the sixth inning, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to a win over the Philadelphia Phillies. Domonic Brown hit his NLleading 19th home run, and had a two-run double in the eighth to account for all of the Phillies runs. Tyler Thornburg (1-0) pitched two innings of scoreless relief to earn his first major-league victory. A top prospect for the Brewers coming into the season, he joined the team Wednesday despite going 0-7 with a 6.75 ERA in 12 starts for Triple-A Nashville. CINCINNATI Mat Latos turned in seven solid innings and the Cincinnati Reds broke out of their slump with a win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Crestwood graduate picked in MLB draft


Years ago, high school and college baseball players wouldnt discover they had been drafted by a major league team until they got a letter in the mail, days after the fact. On Saturday, Matt Wotherspoon wasnt even in the first handful of people to find out that he had been selected by the Detroit Tigers. It was pretty funny, said Wotherspoon, a Crestwood grad whos back in town after finishing his junior year at the University of Pittsburgh. I got a few text messages congratulating me, so I actually found out from that. I went upstairs to do something and I missed it. Not that it made the day any less memorable. Wotherspoon got to spend the day with friends and family as the Tigers made him their 20th-round selection with the 606th overall pick. Wotherspoon was one of the top pitchers to come out of the Wyoming Valley Conference in recent years. He was undrafted out of high school because he was set on attending Pitt and playing there. The 6-foot-1 right-hander will now have another decision to make turn pro and sign with the Tigers or return to Pitt for his senior season. Wotherspoon said Saturday he wasnt leaning one way or the other yet. Just like every other college junior who was drafted this weekend, it will come down in part to contract negotiations and how much the team is willing to offer. But that can wait for another day. Saturday was about enjoying a milestone in what has been a successful career. Though it was widely expected that Wotherspoon would be drafted this year, theres still nothing that quite prepares a player for the moment that it happens. I mean, it was a pretty big shock, Wotherspoon said. It was something Ive been working toward for quite some time. So I was kind of stunned at first. Just happy, really. You hate to use the line, but it was literally a dream come true. As a member of the Panthers rotation in 2013, Wotherspoon went 9-3 in 15 starts and led the team with 85 strikeouts in 107 innings. He finished the year with a 3.70 ERA. Pitt has proven to be a strong pipeline to the draft for WVC players in recent years. Coughlin grads Chris Sedon (10th round, 2009, Detroit) and Ray

MEMPHIS, Tenn. Rookie Shawn Stefani overcame a quadruple bogey and shot a 4-under 66 on Saturday to take the third-round lead in the St. Jude Classic. The 31-year-old Texan blew a two-stroke lead with the quadruple bogey on No. 11, but rebounded with four birdies over his final five holes to move back atop the leaderboard. He had eight birdies to go with that quadruple bogey to reach 12-under 198 at TPC Southwind. Harris English was a stroke back after a 69, finishing out of the lead for the first time this week. Scott Stallings, Patrick Reed and Nicholas Thompson were 8 under. Stallings had a 67, Reed shot 64, and Thompson had a 66. Phil Mickelson was another stroke back after a 65. Thirteen players shot at least 4 under on a day with easier pins on the small, firm greens. This is just the 16th tour event for Stefani, who earned his way onto the PGA Tour by finishing sixth on the Web. com Tour money list in 2012 in a two-time win season. He did play in the U.S. Open in 2009 at Bethpage but missed the cut there. His best finish so far came at the Tampa Bay Championship when he tied for seventh in March. Stefani went off in the final group with English, who had a share of the lead after 18 and had the lead to himself after 36 holes. English opened strong with two birdies in his first three holes to become the first to get to 12 under here this week. But the 23-year-old English bogeyed Nos. 5 and 8 with his playing partner getting his third birdie on No. 9 to take the lead to himself. Stefani hit his approach on the par 4 to 7 feet to set up the birdie, helping him make the turn at 11 under. He then birdied No. 10 rolling in a 12-footer to go to 12 under with a twostroke lead over English. Then the rookie ran into trouble on the island green of the par-3 No. 11. Stefani hit into the water short of the island green on the par-3 No. 11, took his drop and then hit into the back bunker where he had a buried lie. He managed to get the ball out but didnt clear the slope, so the ball rolled back into the bunker. He pushed an 8-footer past the hole 4 feet before finally salvaging a quadruple bogey.

I mean, it was a pretty big shock. It was something Ive been working toward for quite some time. So I was kind of stunned at first. Just happy, really. You hate to use the line, but it was literally a dream come true.

Williams wins second French crown

LPGA Championship

PITTSFORD, N.Y. Overcoming rain and a muddy course, Morgan Pressel shot a 2-under 70 to take the lead after two rounds of the LPGA Championship. At 6-under 138, Pressel had a two-shot lead over top-ranked Inbee Park and Chella Choi. Park shot 68, while Choi, the first-round leader, struggled with a 73. The final two rounds will be squeezed into a 36-hole marathon Sunday at Locust Hill Country Club to determine the winner of the tours second major. The change in schedule came after nearly five inches of rain fell Thursday, forcing officials to postpone the first round.

PARIS Two hours before her French Open final, Serena Williams practiced on center court, the stands deserted as she whacked one winner after another to the distant sounds of a brass band playing on the plaza. When the music stopped, the seats filled and the match began, Williams went on defense, relentlessly chasing down one shot after another to defeat familiar foil Maria Sharapova. With a 6-4, 6-4 victory, the No. 1-ranked Williams won her first French Open championship since 2002. Eleven years, Williams said in French during the trophy ceremony. I think its unbelievable. Now I have 16 Grand Slam titles. Its difficult for me to speak because Im so excited. Then the national anthem played for the first American singles champion at Roland Garros since Williams previous title. Williams whacked 10 aces, including three in the final game, and the last came on match point at 123 mph her hardest serve of the day. She then sank to her knees, screamed at the sky and buried her face in the clay. The victory completed her rebound from a shocking loss to 111th-ranked Virginie Razzano in the first round at the French Open a year ago. Since that defeat shes 74-3, including titles at Wimbledon, the U.S. Open, the London Olympics and the season-

ending WTA Championships. Both finalists swung with their typical aggressiveness from the baseline, but Williams superior serve and defense proved the difference. She silently ran side to side whipping groundstrokes with little apparent strain, while Sharapova often found herself lunging after the ball to stay in the point, with each shot accompanied by her familiar shriek. When Williams once summoned a grunt herself to match Sharapovas volume and pound a winner, the crowd responded with a laugh. Sharapova completed a career Grand Slam by winning Roland Garros last year, but shes still looking for a breakthrough against Williams, who has won their past 13 meetings since 2004. I played a great tournament and I ran into a really tough champion today, Sharapova said.

Black (seventh round, 2011, San Francisco) both were selected while playing for the Panthers. At Crestwood, Wotherspoon was a two-time all-star selection and helped lead the Comets to the District 2 Class 3A championship game as a junior in 2009. The Comets knew they had something special in Wotherspoon well before he even took the field for them. Hes just a really good person, Crestwood coach Mark Modrovsky said. Most people are rooting for Matt Wotherspoon. Because if youve met him, thats the type of person he is. Hes really easy to root for, and thats (aside from his) baseball ability. His familys awful proud today, and its deserved. Wotherspoon made his varsity debut in WVC play in 2008. By 2009, he had established himself as the leagues best pitcher. In that junior campaign, he went 6-0 in the regular season with a 1.58 ERA, striking out 52 in 44 innings. College and pro scouts alike had already taken notice, with Wotherspoon ultimately accepting a scholarship offer to pitch at Pitt. As a senior in 2010, Wotherspoon upped his regular-season strikeout total to 53 in eight fewer innings, keeping his ERA at a pristine 1.94. Wotherspoon finished his Comets career in league play at 12-3 with a 2.18 ERA and 133 strikeouts. He credits his time at Crestwood and the people around him for helping prepare him for this moment. Coach Modrovsky played a huge role for me, coaching me for years at Crestwood, Wotherspoon said. Every time the scouts came to see me it was just, Hey, man just go out and have fun. There wasnt any added pressure. You just throw your game. I really think that carried over for me and helped me.

Nadal facing Ferrer for 8th title

Lions land another top QB


Three scholarship quarterbacks have transferred from Penn State since last summer. Bill OBrien and his staff have had little trouble filling the vacancies. The Nittany Lions added another highly regarded quarterback on Saturday when four-star recruit Michael OConnor announced his decision. Ill be spending the next 4 years in Happy Valley, just committed to Penn State! OConnor posted on his Twitter account. Thanks to everyone who supported me along the way! OConnor, who attends IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., becomes Penn States 11th verbal commitment for the 2014 signing class. The Lions can only sign 15 players in February because of NCAA sanctions. The 247Sports.com composite rankings, which average in projections from multiple major recruiting services, rate OConnor as the No. 12 pocket passer in the country. At 6-foot-4 with an impressive arm, OConnor fits

Regions Tradition

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. David Frost birdied the 16th and 17th holes en route to a 6-under 66 and a one-stroke lead over Fred Couples after the third round of the Regions Tradition. Frost, the South African who won the Toshiba Classic in March for his fourth Champions Tour title, had four birdies on the final eight holes to move to 12-under 205 in the major championship.

PARIS His words catching in his throat, Toni Nadal called it really a miracle that his nephew is back in the French Open final. Seriously? Miraculous? More like expected, given that Rafael Nadal Nadal is 58-1 for his career at Roland Garros, a seven-time champion who will become the only man with eight titles at one Grand Slam tournament if he beats David Ferrer in Sundays all-Spanish final. Here is what Uncle Toni, who has coached Rafa since age 4, Ferrer meant: They harbored doubts about whether a return to the top was possible after Nadal was sidelined for about seven months with a left knee injury. There were times, the younger Nadal said, when it was impossible to think that I would be here. After outlasting top-seeded Novak Djokovic 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-7 (3), 9-7 in a taut and terrific semifinal that stretched across

more than 4 hours, the thirdseeded Nadal referred to his time away, saying, When these kind of matches happen, you suffer, but I really enjoy these moments, no? I really enjoy suffering, because whats harder is when I am in Mallorca last year and I had to watch these kind of matches on the TV. As Nadal began accumulating Grand Slam titles, the biggest question was how long his body would be able to withstand his always-onthe-move playing style. Citing bad knees, he decided not to defend his Wimbledon championship in 2009, just weeks after losing to Robin Soderling in the fourth round of the French Open (that remains Nadals only defeat at his favorite tournament). Nadals left knee was what held him out of action from last June, when he lost in the second round at Wimbledon, until this February. He missed the London Olympics, the U.S. Open and the Australian Open.

the mold of the pro-style quarterback that OBrien prefers to run his offense. Penn State has just two scholarship quarterbacks on the roster for the 2013 season. Junior college transfer Tyler Ferguson and incoming five-star freshman Christian Hackenberg will compete for the starting job in August. With the graduation of Matt McGloin and the transfers of Rob Bolden (LSU), Paul Jones (FCS Robert Morris) and now Steven Bench (South Florida), the Lions were looking to add some more depth at quarterback. OConnor is used to traveling to find opportunities. A native of Canada, OConnor bolstered his profile for colleges when he moved to the U.S. to play at The Baylor School, a prep school in Chattanooga, Tenn. He recently moved to Florida, where he will play his senior season in the fall. According to multiple recruiting services, OConnors scholarship offers included Michigan State, Mississippi State, Missouri, Rutgers, South Florida and Vanderbilt.

Hamlin hoping to stage a rally at Pocono


The comeback was right on schedule. Denny Hamlin knew perfectly well he had to make up for lost time after a nasty wreck kept him out of four races in April. As he creeped back toward the top 20 in points in May, he found himself running better than usual last week at Dover, a track he has struggled at in the past. Likely needing two wins to claim a wildcard spot in the Chase, Hamlin was on the pole at Dover and led 41 laps. But his run of bad luck continued. Hamlin blew a tire and crashed hard into the wall, ending his day 20 laps before the checkered flag. A potential top-five finish turned into a painful 34th and another setback. It was frustrating because we were making big strides from a numbers standpoint, Hamlin said. That one bad finish took Hamlin us all the way back to where we started again, now with less races to do it. You just cant just cant miss races and expect to be where you want to be in points. Its just not possible. With 13 races left before the Chase, Hamlin finds himself in 26th place in the points standings. Because qualifying was rained out on Friday another bit of misfortune Hamlin will start 17th in todays Party in the Poconos 400. If he is going to make an improbable charge into the postseason, it might have to begin here at Pocono Raceway. Hamlin needs to get at least one win to get into the wildcard discussion. If I get one, itll put me in the mix, he said. But then Ill have to leapfrog guys on points. And with the bad finish (at Dover), thats going to be hard to do. Were going to have to rely on two wins and barely get into that top 20 at the end. On one hand, Pocono has arguably Hamlins most successful track, winning there four times in 14 career starts. On the other, all of them came between 2006-10, and the repaving of the track before last season means that new tactics are needed to succeed. Its a completely different racetrack, Hamlin said. When you put down new pavement, its all different. Your setups are no longer the same. You have to learn all over again. At Pocono, we still run really well here. Im optimistic. With the way weve been running, we can win any given week. And weve got little over 10 (races left) to make it happen. Its a tough situation for a driver who is used to contending for the Sprint Cup crown. But on a few levels, Hamlin is happy to have the opportunity this season, even if the odds are long. A disappointing start to 2013 got worse in the fifth race as Hamlin was injured in a frightening crash on the final lap of the Auto Club 400 in California. He suffered a compression fracture in his back and there was some uncertainty about how long he would be out of action. Hamlin ultimately missed four races before easing back into his car last month at Talladega. He drove for just the first part of the race to get credit for a handful of points before being replaced in the car by teammate Brian Vickers. A week later, he looked to back in top form, finishing second at Darlington. He followed that up with a fourth-place finish at Charlotte and was in line for another big day at Dover before he cut a tire. Weve had to reassess our goals but also take into consideration that was the second-best Ive run at that track, Hamlin said. Had we just not run over something, we had a shot at a win. At least I feel like Ive turned a corner at that racetrack. Every week I go out now, Im going to drive as though I need the win. That takes a toll on you competitors because you dont

let as many past you, but were in a little different situation than everyone else right now. Adding a further sting to last weeks issues was that the win went to Tony Stewart, who will be one of Hamlins top opponents for one of the two wildcard spots. In other words, the clock is ticking. Last year, Hamlin won backto-back races just before the Chase began. Repeating that feat could be enough to qualify him once again, but hed prefer not to make things quite that dramatic. Weve got some really good ones down the stretch, but you dont want to wait until there are three races left and you need to win two, Hamlin said. Thats pressure for sure.

LONG POND AJ Allmendinger will replace Bobby Labonte next week at Michigan International Speedway for JTG Daugherty Racing. Allmendinger could drive even more Cup races for the struggling race team. Labonte, the 2000 Cup champion, is 28th in the Sprint Cup points standings and hasnt finished better than 15th in a race. With the team scuffling along, JTG Daugherty Racing decided it was time for a change in the No. 47 Toyota. Weve kind of gone backward the last three years, coowner Brad Daugherty said by phone. We cant exactly put a finger on it without being able to benchmark it against a second team. Its really hard. Hes available, so we thought wed stick him in there to see if he has a different perspective on what were doing and what were not doing. Allmendinger will likely also race for JTG-Daugherty at Watkins Glen and at three other tracks where the team was currently lacking major sponsorship. Allmendinger has driven a limited NASCAR schedule since being suspended for a failed drug test last year. Roger Penske fired him but gave him another chance in IndyCar. Hes set to drive in two NASCAR Nationwide Series races this season for Penske Racing. I have raced for Phoenix Racing some this year and feel confident Ill be able to provide JTG Daugherty Racing with a good comparison, Allmendinger said. Im thankful for this opportunity to work with the team and Bobby. Daugherty said the team hasnt given up on Labonte. Hopefully, this will help Bobby moving forward, Daugherty said. Were putting Bobby back in the car. This isnt an unseating of Bobby Labonte. We just want to figure out why were struggling so badly. We believe hes going to embrace it. Hes a competitor like anybody else. He doesnt want to get out of the race. But its the best thing for the team. Labonte was 29th in the points standings in his first year with the team in 2011 and 23rd last year. He has 21 wins in 703 career cup starts. Hell make his 702nd consecutive start today at Pocono Raceway. But its not enough to keep a full-time ride. We think were building better race cars, Daugherty said. Weve got to get stronger in the engine department. Were behind.

LONG POND Like father, like son. Chase Elliott, son of NASCAR legend Bill Elliott, became the young driver to ever win an ARCA Series race as he won the Pocono 200 on Saturday at Pocono Raceway. The 17-year-old led the final 21 laps after working his way up from the 32nd starting spot. His father, one of Sprint Cups most popular drivers, won five times at Pocono. Erik Jones, another 17-yearold, finished in second.

NOT A BETTER IDEA?

The manufacturers breakdown of the top-20 drivers is nine Chevrolets, six Toyotas and five Fords. Chevy drivers have won six of 13 races, while Toyota has won five and Ford just two. That left Greg Biffle, driver of the No. 16 Ford, wondering if Ford is a bit behind the other two. Defending race winner Joey Logano is thinking the same. Well, I guess if you look at it the results dont lie, said Logano, who will start 22nd in his No. 22 Ford, and I think thats obvious for all you guys to see. But I do feel like we are working really hard and trying to make improvements and trying to work together as one Ford and as one team and trying to figure out what weve got to do to go a little faster. Fords have made up 33 percent of the fields through 13 races. Toyota is third at 27 percent.

Pocono. Well be pushing for 300 pretty soon. I dont think you sacrifice the racing. We race just as hard for 400 miles as we do for 500 miles. The human attention span is probably a little more acclimated to 400 miles. On a side note, Burton was joking about going to 300 miles.

THE BLACK HOLE

SHORTER IS BETTER

TIRE TALK

Last years races were the first time Pocono events were 400 miles instead of 500 miles. That suited Jeff Burton just fine. It was nothing but a positive to take it to 400, Burton said last week at a test session at

Goodyear will use the same tire combination today as in the two Pocono races in 2012. The left-side tires will have a circumference of 87.4 inches while the right-side tires will be 88.3 inches. Teams are limited to nine sets of tires.

Lining up based on owners points certainly wasnt a good thing for Paul Menard. Hell start ninth, which is good in one sense and bad in another. While 49 of 70 Pocono winners have started in the top 10, none has ever won from the ninth starting position. Marcos Ambrose finished 13th in last years race after starting ninth.

Vettel takes 3rd straight pole at F1 Canadian GP


By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer

MONTREAL Sebastian Vettel earned pole position at Formula Ones Canadian Grand Prix for the third consecutive year. The championship points leader drove the fastest lap in the final qualifying session with a time of 1 minute, 25.425 seconds. Its his third pole position of the year, and hell be looking for his third victory in Sundays race. Lewis Hamilton will be in the front row on the 2.71-mile course located on the Ile Notre Dame. Its the second straight

year the two will line up sideby-side in the front row at the Circuit Giles Villeneuve. Intermittent rain dampened the course and slowed the cars for the last two of the three qualifying sessions. The forecast Sunday called for a low chance of rain. Driving for Infiniti Red Bull, Vettel enters the weekend with a 21-point lead over Kimi Raikkonens Lotus in the Formula One standings. The second qualifying session was interrupted when Felipe Massa turned sideways and skidded into the wall at Turn 3. The Brazilian banged his hands on

the steering wheel of his Ferrari before climbing out of the car. Rookie Valtteri Bottas was third in qualifying the first time he has qualified in the front two rows. Monaco winner Nico Rosberg, who had been on the pole for the previous three races this year, was fourth on Saturday, followed by Mark Webber and Fernando Alonso. Earlier Saturday, the teams completed their third practice run, a session that was cut short to allow for the repair of a barrier that was damaged during a support race. Webber had the fastest lap in practice on Saturday (1:17.895).

something at those places and it really shows up because a lot of tracks are that way now. Theyre very smooth and fast and are the meat of the season. Not that Edwards is complaining about being second in points. Its how he arrived at the spot thats a bit troubling. After a 33rd in the seasonopening Daytona 500, Edwards dusted off the field at Phoenix the following week. He led a race-high 122 laps as he posted his 20th career victory. Since then, he has led just 31 laps in the next 11 races. His ability to constantly bring home solid finishes coupled with some bad luck by drivers also poking around in the top-10 in the standings are the main reasons hes only 30 points behind Johnson. If you can go out every week and have the fastest car and qualify on the pole and are leading laps and racing for the win, you really dont think about points that much, Edwards said. Were hanging on that second in points and saying thats great. But we know we can be better and dont want to be complacent because of our fortunate posi-

tion in points. Like (crew chief) Jimmy Fennig pointed out, if the Chase started tomorrow we would not be in a good spot. We know we have to step it up. Another driver feels the same way Jeff Gordon. He was 22nd in points entering last years Pocono 400. He is currently in 11th, the spot hell start today, but has

been plagued by a roller-coaster season that includes three finishes of 34th or worse. We go into every race trying to win, said Gordon, who has won a record six times at Pocono including August of last year. Were further up the points at this point this year than we were last year and I dont feel like weve had a terrific season.

Ride a bike to work and positively influence a friend


Cycling or walking - to work can provide a lot of benefits. Improving physical fitness, saving money on gas, enjoying your commute more. There is even that whole lowering your carbon footprint thing. But, according to a recent study, the advantages of using a bike to get back and forth from work go well beyond the individual doing the riding. Researchers at Penn State found that people who bicycle or

CYCLING

JOE SOPRANO
walk to work are likely to influence co-workers or partners to do the same. And thats really good news, considering that other studies show how that more than 80 percent of American adults do not meet the guidelines for aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities. Riding or walking to work is something that the lead researcher of the study, assistant professor of kinesiology Melissa Bopp, calls active commuting. And according to Bopp, active

commuting (AC) is great way to help adults integrate the recommended activity into their daily routine. And when your co-workers see you coming to work on your bike, they are more likely to bike or walk to work, too. Social influences are important, specifically interpersonal influences, such as spouses and co-workers, Bopp said. People who reported that their spouse (actively commute) are more likely to do it themselves. Bopp added that the strength of the relationship is also a factor. I was surprised at how much of an influence that ones social

life has, Bopp said. She added that having a spouse that actively commutes appears to be a very strong factor on whether someone will ride or walk to work. (Maybe I should be concerned that my wife hasnt developed my love for riding a bike to work.) According to Bopp, other factors are involved, too. Employees who were offered more support are more likely to be active commuters, Bopp said. And the community plays a part as well. Bopp said things like bike lanes and parking spots for bikes all make it more likely for people to leave the car at

home when they go to work. Bopp came to her conclusions by studying employees at large companies throughout the state. She also noted that men are more likely to actively commute than women, and people without children are more likely to do it than people with children. Whatever other factors enter into a persons decision to use a little healthier way to get to work, its nice to know that you can be helping them make that choice just by riding your bike.

Pump it up

I was reminded of an important lesson by Tom Jones of Around Town Bicycles earlier this month.

Its something I knew but just ignored. I pass it along because I assume many cyclists are like me. After suffering through several flat tires in a short amount of time last month, Jones asked me if I was pumping up my tires before every ride. Of course, I wasnt. Tires can lose 20 percent of their air volume overnight, Jones said. And not replacing that air can lead to flats while you are out on the road. So dont forget to spend a few minutes with your floor pump before you head out for your next ride.

Bruins bring momentum, defense to Stanley Cup


By COLLEEN KANE Chicago Tribune

Matt Mileski looks over a putt on the green of the 12th hole during Saturdays play in the Wyoming Valley Country Club Classic in Hanover Township.

FRED ADAMS/FOR THE TIMES LEADER

Matthews awaits Open call at WVCC Classic


By JAY MONAHAN For The Times Leader

HANOVER TWP. With every passing day, another X gets marked on the calendar for Brandon Matthews. Days away from nearly qualifying for the U.S. Open and relegated to the first alternate, Matthews Open hopes rest beyond his control. Rather than wait impatiently for a phone call bearing good news, the Dupont resident competed in Day Two of the Wyoming Valley Country Club Classic Saturday in Hanover Township. Matthews, along with teammate Ken Ralston, fell to John Olszewski and Eric Williams in the quarterfinals of the championship flight. (Olszewski and Williams) played really well, Matthews said. They absolutely deserve to win this tournament. Theyre on top of their game right now. They were making unbelievable shots all day. Leading by a hole, Williams drained a 15-footer for a birdie on the 17th hole to clinch his teams semifinal berth. Even if I ended up making that putt on 17, we still would have been lucky to take it to 18, Matthews said. We would be six-under on the day even though we were playing match play. We ran with them for as

Justin Jumper and his son Brad look a putt Saturday.

long as we could but theyre just playing great golf this weekend. Matthews was leading Mondays U.S. Open sectional qualifier in Purchase, N.Y., before Gavin Hall sunk a birdie on the final four holes to surpass the Pittston Area graduate and Temple sophomore for a qualifying spot in the tournament. According to Temples athletics website, Matthews has two paths to qualify for next weekends Open at Merion Golf Club outside of Philadelphia. If an exempt player withdraws from the

Open, his replacement comes from a sectional deemed by the United States Golf Association to have been the toughest. If a Purchase, N.Y., qualifier leaves the field, then Matthews will replace him. Matthews said he is still on the waiting list and that he could find out up to an hour before Thursdays tee time whether or not he will compete. He will be able to hit practice balls and putt at Merion while waiting to get the call. Matthews said he is scheduled to leave Tuesday for an Am Tour

tournament in Spring Grove outside of Pittsburgh. The duo of Mike Duda and Tim Crossin held off a late charge from Brad and Justin Jumper on the 18th hole. Trailing by one, Justin Jumper topped his tee shot and landed approximately 50 yards out of the box. Duda directed a fairway shot 10 feet short of the pin, setting up a chance for him to clinch the win with a pair of putts. Duda and Crossin will face Olszewski and Williams in the first semifinal flight. The teams of Rick Berry/Tom Wasilewski and Mike Blazick/Art Brunn Jr. will face off in the other semi match. Both duos won their matches by more than one hole to play. The championship flights tee off at 8:24 a.m. at the Wyoming Valley Country Club. The final round is set to begin at 2:30 p.m.

BOSTON The Bruins had just knocked off the top-seeded Penguins in the Eastern Conference finals in shocking fashion, inducing a collapse of one of the leagues best offenses on the way to a series sweep. Bruins center Patrice Bergeron figured that allowed for a short celebration Friday night after the Bruins 1-0 series-clinching victory at TD Garden. Obviously enjoy this tonight, Bergeron said. But still tomorrow we have to refocus and get back at it. The Bruins will refocus to try to win their seventh Stanley Cup and second in three years in the coming weeks. Heres a look at what the Blackhawks can expect if they advance out of the Western Conference finals. How the Bruins won: Disbelief was the word Penguins coach Dan Bylsma chose to describe the disintegration of his teams offense in the series. Some of it was luck, both the Penguins and Bruins coach Claude Julien said, but much was the Bruins tight, disciplined style of play and the goaltending of Tuukka Rask. Led by the top defensive duo of Zdeno Chara

At press time, the game between the Los Angeles Kings and Chicago Blackhawks was still in progress.

EDITORS NOTE

and Dennis Seidenberg, the Bruins limited the leagues regularseason scoring leaders to two goals in nearly 14 periods of play. The Penguins never led. Theyre consistent, Penguins center Sidney Crosby said. They dont give you chances. You have to earn them. We earned them, but unfortunately we didnt capitalize on them. The Bruins penalty kill was 15-for-15 against one of the leagues best power-play units, a stat Julien credited to preparation and in-series adjustments. Whos hot: Six players scored for the Bruins in the series, including center David Krejci, who upped his playoff total to 21 points with four goals in the first three games. Brad Marchand, who said he embraced the irritator role, scored twice in Game 2 and then assisted the winning goals in the next two games. But the Bruins take pride in being a complete team rather than just a couple of star players. There are four lines that can play. Its a huge advantage, Bruins winger Jaromir Jagr said. Theyre stimulating. You feel alive. I wouldnt say fun, but theres no other place Id rather be. Its kind of a misery you enjoy. Youre cranky, especially after a loss. You dont like the other team. Youre just a general grouch, but its the time you feel most alive as a basketball player and theres nothing like it. Once you taste it, you dont want to live without it. Its a grind, though, for a team that will be playing its 100th game of the season Sunday. Wade has battled a painful right knee for a while, Chris Bosh is in a shooting slump, and the minutes are adding up for LeBron James, who has played deep into June the last three years and then competed in the Olympics last year. Its a toll for myself to go through what Ive been through the last 2 years. But Ive been blessed, Ive been blessed to be able to be in three finals, Ive been blessed to be a part of a great Olympic team and to play basketball, the game that I love, James said. Im not going to be able to do it forever. The opportunities that the game has given me for the last couple of years, I wouldnt substitute that for rest, he said. James and the Heat at least got some with two days off following the Spurs 92-88 victory in Game 1. Both James and Wade had mentioned fatigue when talking about Miamis poor fourth-quarter performance, just three nights after the end of a difficult, seven-game series against Indiana to decide the Eastern Conference championship. The break gave the Heat more time to examine ways their own Big Three can be successful on offense, as well as get some more defensive pressure on the Spurs, who committed just four turnovers none by Parker in the opener. I think its been great for us, these last I dont know how many hours its been since Game 1, James said. But weve used the time, I think, wisely in this case. They showed up in better spirits Saturday, James and Wade among several players taking part in a post-practice shooting contest, the kind of fun it seemed they would always have from the moment they debuted as Miami teammates three years ago in a welcoming party that rivaled a rock concert. There will be time for partying if they rally to win the series after a one-game deficit, just as they did last year in the finals. The Heat havent lost consecutive games in five months, and they know this is no time to start. Were not a team that really says too much this is a mustwin game, but this is a must-win game for us, Wade said. We have to win this game at home.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre lost for the 12th in its last 18 games at PNC Field on Saturday night as Buffalo overcame an early threerun deficit to cruise to a 10-4 win.

RIDERS
Continued from Page 1C

At the beginning of the game it appeared as if the night would be special for the home team as well. In the first three innings Brett Marshall showed the form that earned him the ranking of the sixth overall prospect in the organization by Baseball America and what earned him a callup to New York earlier this season. Through the first three all he allowed was one hit, a double to the gap in left-center to the reigning International League MVP Mauro Gomez with two outs in the first. He then struck out four of the next six hitters he faced including getting all three on strikes in the third. I was feeling good and had a lot of confidence with my pitches and when I struck out the side in the third inning I was like OK this is good, Marshall

said. He was helped by the offense scoring two runs in the bottom of the third and one more in the fourth. Thomas Neal and Bobby Wilson laced back-to-back doubles in the third and Alberto Gonzalez followed with a single for a 2-0 advantage. In the next inning, Dan Johnson singled in a run for the 3-0 cushion. In the fourth though, the RailRiders ran into trouble. Marshall gave up four runs as Buffalo netted three consecutive two-out doubles from Jim Negrych, Ricardo Nanita and Mike McCoy to take a 4-3 advantage. The Bisons were right back at it in the top of the fifth to end Marshalls day. They got to the righty for another run on two walks and a run-scoring single to push the lead to 5-3. The 23-year-old Marshall, who allowed 21 runs in his previous three starts, ended his day with 100 pitches through five innings after the good beginning

allowing five runs on six hits in four innings. In his three starts prior to being promoted to the Yankees he gave up just three runs. For me, I like to focus on the positives. I will put this game behind me. Its over. Its done with it, cant do anything about it, Marshall added. But I will look at the first three innings. I will go back and look at video and see what I was doing right and go to the fourth and see what was going on. Josh Spence relieved Marshall and didnt fare much better as Buffalo scored another run in the sixth to go ahead 6-3. Meanwhile, after staking Marshall to a 3-0 lead, Buffalo starter Claudio Vargas kept the RailRiders bats in check. The veteran Vargas retired the next seven batters he faced until Josh Bell hit a solo shot leading off the bottom of the sixth to cut the lead to 6-4. And after Bells blast, Vargas got the next three

Down 1-0 after a record regular season that goes for naught without another title, the Heat can turn their moods around with a victory over San Antonio on Sunday night in Game 2. Back in the finals for a third straight year, the Heat have lost some of the ability to enjoy the ride. With exorbitant expectations, all that matters is the destination. But San Antonio, absent from this stage for six years, is soaking up what could be its last shot for Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. After all, Duncan is pretty ancient at least, according to those wise-cracking Spurs. Older than dirt, coach Gregg Popovich called him this week. Parker listed him at age 50 Duncan is actually 37 and the repeated ribbing appears almost out of character for a franchise that was often considered the definition of basketball blandness. My friends and everybody on the team, we get like the funny Instagram doctored-up photos or jokes where theyre making fun of how old some of the people on our team are who shall remain nameless, reserve Matt Bonner said. And we get a kick out of that. Despite the notion theyre old, the Spurs are actually overall the younger, less-experienced team in these finals. Miami has nine players in their 30s to the six on the Spurs, and their Big Three and Bonner are the only Spurs to have played in the NBA Finals. That makes it easier for the Spurs to enjoy this trip more than when they were the team expected to be here every year. We definitely are having fun, Parker said. I think we appreciate every moment. We dont take anything for granted, because its been a long time. Its been six years. Felt like forever. After the Memphis series, there was a lot of emotion. Heat veteran Shane Battier wasnt exactly sold on the notion of this Spurs transformation into a happy-go-lucky group. Dont believe them, first of all, he said. They are extreme competitors and they have a level of self-deprecation I think that is part of them, but dont buy it for one second. Those guys are killers. Theyre cut-throat and they will stomp on you if need be, and were the same way. We appreciate the opportunity to play in the finals. Difficult to get here. Hardest thing youll do in this game is to try and win a championship, so we appreciate the opportunity and we want to make the most of it, he said. But he agreed with Wade that the playoffs arent fun. No, theyre not, he said.

for my partners, and Im proud of Todd, one of the greatest horse trainers of all time. Sent off at odds of 13-1, Palace Malice returned $29.60, $11.20 and $6.70. Oxbow, trained by D. Wayne Lukas, returned $9.90 and $6.10, and Orb, trained by Shug McGaughey, paid $3.30. He made a good run around the turn, but we had given up so much, McGaughey said about the colt who was still ninth with a half-mile to go and just could not make up the difference. I dont think he got tired. He put up a pretty good run to get where he was, and those horses just werent coming back. Incognito was fourth, followed by Revolutionary, the lly Unlimited Budget, Overanalyze, Vyjack, Golden Soul, Will Take Charge, Giant Finish, Midnight Taboo, Freedom Child and Frac Daddy. The Belmont concludes a Triple Crown season in which hopes were high that Orb could break the 35-year drought without a sweep of the classics. In fact, its the fourth time in ve years each race was won by a different horse. Rosie Napravnik, who was aboard Unlimited Budget, became the rst female to ride in all three Triple Crown races in the same year. She was trying to become the second female jockey to win a Triple Crown race. Pletchers other Belmont starters were Revolutionary, Unlimited Budget, Overanalyze and Midnight Taboo. All week, Pletcher expressed optimism that Palace Malice was ready to unleash a big effort. On June 2, the son of two-time Horse of the Year Curlin put in a blazing 4 furlong workout in 47.40 seconds. Pletcher called it one of the most impressive works hed ever seen. And it carried over to the race and gave the nations leading trainer his second Belmont win (he won the 2007 Belmont with the lly Rags to Riches) to go with his 2010 Derby win with Super Saver. Smith won his second Belmont, having won aboard Drosselmeyer in 2010. The game plan was mapped out, and it really went according to plan, Smith said. We were laying third on the outside of Oxbow, like we wanted. At the three-eighths, Gary said, Go on, little brother. And we went on it with it, man.

BELMONT
Continued from Page 1C

Its huge. Its huge, Pletcher said about his second Belmont win. We always felt like he had a big one in him. We were just waiting for it to nally develop. I told (owner) Mr. (Cot) Campbell this horse is training unbelievable. I know hes got a big run, we just need to put it all together. Palace Malice, who skipped the Preakness, covered the 1 miles in a slow 2:30.70 on a fast track following a 24-hour downpour. A crowd of 47,562 turned out on a warm, sunny afternoon as Tropical Storm Andrea moved out of the area. For the second time during this Triple Crown run, Pletcher sent out ve horses. He came up short in the Derby ve weeks ago, skipped the Preakness and regrouped, and came through at his home track for an owner who has supported him from the start. Its the mother of all great moments, Ill tell you that, the 85-year old Campbell said. Im proud for Dogwood and proud

World-class trout

Evans late goal lifts US over Jamaica


The Associated Press

PhOTO PrOvided

Last Sundays feature on Wilkes-Barre taxidermist Frank Kotula winning Best in World for his brown trout mount left many readers yearning to see the world-class work. The winning mount is pictured above. The fish was caught by Len Peznowski of Wilkes-Barre in November 2011, while fishing in Oswego, N.Y.

Brad Evans saved the United States from another deflating World Cup qualifier on the road. After Jamaicas Jermaine Beckford tied the score in the 89th minute, Evans scored an unlikely goal in the second minute of second-half stoppage time following an excellent pass from Michael Bradley, giving the U.S. a thrilling 2-1 win over Jamaica at Kingston on Friday night that solidified the Americans chances of qualifying for next years World Cup. It makes traveling a little easier, U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. Jozy Altidore scored for the second straight game, putting the Americans ahead in the 30th minute. They had scored the first goal in four of five previous road qualifiers under Klinsmann, but were only 1-2-1 in those matches. It looked as if they would drop points again when an unmarked Beckford beat goalkeeper Tim Howard with a close-range header from Rodolph Austins 40-yard free kick. In wasting an

early lead during in the semifinal round last September, the U.S. allowed both Jamaica goals off corner kicks. But just over a minute into four minutes of stoppage time, Bradley quickly played an American corner kick to Graham Zusi. He gave the ball right back, and Bradley faked around Alvas Powell and slid a pass to Evans. With three Jamaicans about 5 yards from him, Evans spun and beat goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts from about 10 yards. It was the first international goal for Evans, starting at right back because Steve Cherundolo is resting after a knee injury sidelined him from December to April, and Timmy Chandler tore a left knee ligament last month. Theyre dire moments. Evans said. I think we can do better at certain moments, and I think everybody will tell you that from the top down. So theres still work to be done. But three points, on the road, in a place we havent won, is pretty special. Starting a stretch of three qualifiers in 12 days, the U.S. (2-

1-1) improved to seven points in the 10-game final round of the North and Central American and Caribbean region, trailing Costa Rica (2-1-1) on goal difference and ahead of Mexico (1-0-4) on goals scored. Costa Rica won 1-0 at home against Honduras on a goal by the New York Red Bulls Roy Miller, and Mexico tied 0-0 at Panama (1-03), which has six points. Honduras (1-2-1) has four points and the Reggae Boyz (03-2) have two, with little chance of reaching next years tournament in Brazil. We are obviously disappointed, Jamaica coach Theodore Whitmore said. The Americans host Panama on Tuesday on Evans home field with Major League Soccers Seattle Sounders, then play Honduras on June 18 at Sandy, Utah.

It was luck. Chuck Peterman admits that was the main reason why he landed a five-and-a-half pound largemouth bass to win the championship for the Harveys Lake Wednesday Night tournament last year. I threw it in the right spot, set the hook and that was it, Peterman said. Lucky. Hes hoping luck is on his side again this year when the new tournament season kicks off on June 19. The Harveys Lake Wednesday Night tourney is one of several to be held in the area some weekly Bass season after the opens on June June 15 15 in waterways across the state. opening day The season conof bass seatinues until Oct. son.

The tournaments offer anglers the opportunity for a decent payday, but many choose to participate for the thrill of the competition and the camaraderie among those who simply love to fish. Joe Kosloski, tournament director for PA Bass Casters, said his group holds several open tourneys each year that nonmembers are welcome to compete in. Turnouts for open tournaments are usually pretty good, he said, and Kosloski has taken steps to make them more appealing to the casual angler. I keep the entry fees down and I dropped the limit to five fish because it keeps the weights closer, Kosloski said. Anglers see these tournaments on television and they want to experience what its like. I try to keep my tournaments geared more toward the amateur anglers who like the small tournaments. Since 2004, the Suskie Bassmasters have been holding a Wednesday night bass tournament on the Susquehanna River, launching from Nesbitt Park. The weekly tournament kicks off on June 19, and treasurer Lynda Morris expects an increase in participants. Last year, we had a lot of new anglers and were already getting calls from anglers interested about fishing this summer, she said. Last year, we had up to 30 boats in one night, and Im hoping for between 30 and 40 this year. Part of the reason for the continued rise in interest, Morris said, is anglers are continuing to realize just how productive the smallmouth bass fishery is in the

Caught on camera
Capture anything interesting on your handheld or trail camera? A nice buck, bear, coyote or anything unique? Wed love to see it. Each week, well run a photo from a readers trail camera on the Sunday Outdoors page. Email your photo, along with date and area it was taken (township is fine) and any other details to tvenesky@timesleader.com. There is a cruel side to nature, one that is often masked by the beauty that abounds. This red fox is a good example of what can happen when a population is left unchecked. Robert Krull of Swoyersville took this photo of a red fox that appeared in his backyard with a bad case of mange in February. Mange is a skin disease caused by mites and it is easily spread through a population via contact. Its more common where high densities of foxes occur and, unfortunately, it is usually fatal.

Pennsylvania Game Commission biologists are seeking assistance from residents in a regional monitoring effort to collect bat maternity colony data this summer. This monitoring is especially important to measure bat mortalities caused by White-Nose Syndrome (WNS), a disease that affects hibernating bats in Pennsylvania and other parts of the eastern United States. WNS primarily kills during the winter, but the true impact of WNS on bat populations cannot be determined using estimates from winter hibernacula alone, said Nate Zalik, Game Commission wildlife biologist. Pennsylvanians can help us more fully gauge the impact of WNS on bats by hosting a bat count this summer. We are especially urging people who have ever conducted a bat count for the Game Commission in the past to redo a count this year. To obtain applications and information on how to participate, visit the Game Commissions website (www. pgc.state.pa.us) and put your cursor over Wildlife in the menu bar at the top of the homepage, click on Wildlife in the drop-down menu, scroll down and choose Pennsylvania Bats in the Wild Mammals section, and then click on Appalachian Bat Count. Forms on the website guide interested participants through the steps of timing, conducting a survey and submitting their findings to the Game Commission. Scout groups, 4-H clubs, local environmental organizations, and individual homeowners can all participate in this important effort. Pennsylvanias two most common bat species, the little brown bat and the big brown bat, use buildings as their summer roosts, Zalik said. Abandoned houses, barns, church steeples and even currently-occupied structures can provide a summer home to female bats and their young. Monitoring these maternity colonies can give biologists a good idea of how bat populations in an area are doing from year to year. With the occurrence of WNS in Pennsylvania, monitoring these colonies is more important than ever. Zalik noted that the fieldwork isnt difficult to do, and Pennsylvanians can play a huge role in helping the Game Commission get a better understanding of what is happening to bats this summer.

I get people from Allentown and Scranton to the Harveys Lake tournaments. If the bite is on at Harveys Lake, the guys will be there, Kosloski said. So far things are shaping up nicely at Harveys Lake in anticipation of tournament season. Dalley said he has done well fishing the lake this spring and is confident that there are plenty of monster bass topping the sixpound mark in the lake. Morris said her tournament on the river has seen plenty of smallmouths in the five- to sixpound range over the years most of them caught north of the boat launch. The chance to land a lunker is what has brought Peterman, who is a member of PA Bass Bandits, out to the tournament trail for the last five years. That, and a little luck. The guys at the tournaments are very friendly and theres always a good chance to catch something big in the lake, he said. Its just a fun time. A night out. Some guys are in to golf or bowling leagues. I fish for bass.

We welcome that because it promotes the fishery, Morris said. The tournament is about educating anglers and the public about how good the river is. The anglers are out there, they just didnt know of the potential. Duke Dalley, who runs the Wednesday night tournament at Harveys Lake, said he has also gotten a considerable amount of phone calls from anglers wanting to know if the event will be held this year. Like Morris, Dalley is expecting an increase for his tournament and is hopeful that he can get between 30 and 40 boats. A lot of people are anxious for it, Dalley said. Bass fishing itself is increasing in popularity and people like the tournaments

because it combines fishing with competition and camaraderie. Still, the bass tournament trail has hit some rough water along the way. Last year, a concern over liability if an angler got hurt nearly derailed the Harveys Lake contest until Dalley and his partner, John Niezgoda, stepped up to post insurance and had participants sign a waiver releasing them from liability in case of an injury. The entire issue, however, has forced some of the smaller tournaments to cease operations because of the cost of insurance. The insurance ordeal last year scared people and some tournaments folded, Kosloski said. With the bigger tournaments, I think it peaked like NASCAR. Now it seems the smaller ones those that are three or four hours are more popular. Still, there is one factor that drives tournament success more than money, competition or camaraderie. It goes back to the sole reason why anglers cast a line in the first place. They want to catch fish.

Notice of a Finding of No Significant Impact Back Mountain Regional Fire and EMS, Inc. - Fire House Construction Luzerne County, Pennsylvania The USDA, Rural Development has received an application for financial assistance from the Back Mountain Regional Fire and EMS, Inc. Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. The Back Mountain Regional Fire and EMS has applied to Rural Development (RD) for a loan to construct a six bay addition onto a recently acquired property in Lehman Township. The Fire company has purchased a parcel of land approximately 9 acres in size that includes a 5,800 square foot office building. The office building, which was previously used as a doctors office, will be renovated to serve as the central headquarters for the Back Mountain Regional Emergency Services. Rural Development funds will be used to construct this six bay addition about 5,900 square feet in size, to house the fire companys trucks, ambulance, equipment and rest room. As required by the National Environmental Policy Act, the Rural Development has determined that the proposal will not have a significant effect on the human environment and, therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement will not be prepared. In order to avoid or minimize any adverse environmental impacts, USDA Rural Development will require the applicant to incorporate the following mitigation measures into the proposed projects design: a. The applicant will require in the contract documents that the contractor(s) abide by the Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control Plan as reviewed and approved by the Luzerne County Conservation District. No fill will be placed in floodplains or wetlands. Should the applicant become aware from any source that historic or archeological resources are located at or near the project site, the Bureau of Historic Preservation and USDA Rural Development will be contacted immediately. All construction debris will be disposed of at a Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) approved landfill and in accordance with DEP regulations. Should the scope of the project change or be amended to include additional ground disturbing activities, the applicant/engineer will contact SHPO and Rural Development immediately so it can be determined it a Phase I Archaeological Survey is necessary to locate all potentially significant archaeological resources.

Advance directives let you have a say


When it comes to your health and the kind of medical care you receive, you want to maintain as much control as possible. thats why, as you age, it becomes critical to draw up an advance directive, or living will, clearly stating your wishes about life-sustaining treatments when you reach the point that you can no longer decide for yourself. note that this isnt the same as a medical power of attorney, in which you appoint a person to make decisions about your medical care if you are unable to communicate. With an advance directive, you make the decisions. Drawing up an advance directive is important for everyone, but its particularly critical for those who have been diagnosed with Alzheimers disease or any other form of dementia. the Alzheimers Association encourages all individuals to prepare advance directives, which remove the burden of difcult care decisions from the caregivers and ensures the wishes of the diagnosed individual are respected and implemented, said Debra Adams, vice president of programs and services at the Alzheimers Associations Greater Dallas chapter. Advance directives are an essential part of a care plan for a person with Alzheimers disease or related dementia. heres what you need to know on advance directives. stARt eARLY: Patients diagnosed in the early stages of Alzheimers should start on their advance directive while theyre still lucid, experts said. one of the advantages of getting a diagnosis early is so the person can complete their directives and other legal and nancial documents while they are still competent to do so, said Kay Paggi, a Dallas geriatric care manager. thats critical, elder law attorneys said. if youre the attorney, you always try to not have somebody sign documents that you provide to them if you dont think theyre lucid enough to understand what theyre signing, said John mcnair, elder law attorney at Barnett mcnair hall LLP in Dallas. You dont just sign an advance directive, mcnair said. You have to make a decision. if someone is unable to make those choices about their care that are required in properly completing an advance directive, then they probably lack the capacity to care for their own health, he said. DementiA PRoVision: most advance directives take effect only when a person is unable to make health care decisions and is either permanently unconscious or terminally ill, said Barbara coombs Lee, president of compassion & choices, an end-of-life choice advocacy and support group. But what of the situation in which a person suffers from severe dementia but is neither unconscious nor dying? compassion & choices has made available a provision that can be added to any advance directive to advise physicians and family of the wishes of a patient with Alzheimers or other dementia. its pretty unique because if youre looking at someone whos terminally ill and mentally competent to make a contemporaneous decision, a person with Alzheimers will never meet those dual criteria, Lee said. When theyre mentally competent, they wont be in the terminal phase of their illness, and when theyre in the terminal phase of their illness, they wont be mentally competent. heres some of the language in compassion & choices dementia provision: if i am unconscious and it is unlikely that i will ever become conscious again, i would like my wishes regarding specic life-sustaining

tea expert David Decandia has spent his entire 17-year career in the shadow of coffee. At his employer, Los Angeles beverage chain coffee Bean & tea Leaf, coffee comes rst in the company name. it also takes up most of the companys processing facility in camarillo, calif., and brings in 90 percent of the revenue. But more Americans are complaining that their coffee buzz feels like a hangover, citing concerns about over-caffeination and high prices. Decandia is reading the tea leaves _ and seeing a cultural shift toward his brew of choice. the tea industry is going straight up, and at some point, it will reach the level of coffee, he said, standing in a lab ringed by porcelain cups, maps of tea estates and bags of dried oolong. its time. People have maxed out on other types of beverage. Americans developing a hankering for tea are turning one of historys oldest drinks into what may be the beverage industrys sexiest new offering.

Aging baby boomers and Redbull-swigging youngsters are expected to buy more tea. Asians, long a key revenue source, form the fastest-growing racial group in the country.

s people get busier and planning a party becomes more time consuming, some local grocery stores are stepping in to lend a hand. multiple grocery stores have long made veggie, cheese, cookie trays available to customers and theyre almost always pick up only. But times have changed and some grocers are offering catering for everything from small ofce get togethers to large tailgate parties and more. And some are even allowing you to customize your spread without stepping foot in the store.
schiels markets, with two locations in Wilkes-Barre, have been offering catering for 13 years for customers that order in-store or via phone. its a good niche for the independents, said owner Gary schiel, who added that while other grocers are now joining in to that market, hes not too concerned. We count on our quality to keep customers coming back and to spread the world to add to the clientelle list, schiel said. While schiels has relied on a catering menu for years, online ordering has not been added. one chain, Gerritys, is offering that option and even throwing in delivery so you truly never have to talk to a store employee or step foot through the automatic doors in any of their nine area stores to get a catered affair. the scranton-based grocer, with markets throughout Lackawanna and Luzerne counties, has launched a revamped and expanded online order and delivery site that allows shoppers to customize their event for any occasion. if its just a cake you need, you can create and order one of those, too. the revamped website and delivery option is being rolled out just in time for the busy summer season that includes graduations, weddings and barbecues. Gerritys strives to be forward thinking, ahead of the curve and progressive in all we do, which is why it was important to us to offer such a state-of-the-art online catering site to our customers, said Joseph Fasula, co-owner of Gerritys supermarkets. this innovative website demonstrates we are embracing and incorporating a national trend into our business model. no matter the event, birthday or graduation parties, holiday get togethers, business meetings, or funeral luncheons, our catering website serves as a one stop shop party store, said Fasula. the Gerritys site lets you select the quantity or size of each item and also variations, such as opting for sugar free over regular. You can also buy add ons such as napkins, plates, plastic ware and more. Go to order Buffalo wings and boxes offering bleu cheese dressing will also appear. And to top it off, if you live within 10 miles of a Gerritys, you can choose to have the order delivered. While its not an original idea, the online ordering and delivery is unique in this region.

like Visa gift cards and signed movie posters. Red Robin will also reward any guest who sees the movie during opening weekend (July 26-28) and brings their ticket stub into participating restaurants the following monday through thursday, with $3 off their visit. sounds like a good Fathers Day gift idea to me. But its not the only one. moms, if you have a little tyke, sign him or her up, along with dad, for next weekends free Lowes Build & Grow Kids clinic. Kids will enjoy building a monsters University chest. Kids will also get a free apron, project patch and project kit. Register early as each Kids clinic only has between 50 and 100 spots and they ll up fast. the recommended ages are 5 to 12 but you can bring younger children as long as you can provide them the help and supervision they need. Dad will love spending time with the kids and its a nice after-Fathers

Day event to look forward to. the workshops will be held on saturday, June 22 at 10 a.m. and sunday, June 23 at 2 p.m. and the edwardsville, Wilkes-Barre, Dickson city, mount Pocono and hazleton stores are all participating. Go to www.lowesbuildandgrow. com to learn more and to register. now i normally wouldnt advocate spending more than $400 on a gift for dad but when its a deal like this and its a gift that will really be used by the entire family, i must. Walmart has a 50 Element 1080p LeD hDtV on sale this week for $428. ive checked online and at other area stores for the same product and this is the cheapest i could nd for a new one. so i say if you want it and you can afford it, get it.

CVS is offering $10 in extra Bucks rewards when you purchase $50 in Bass Pro Shops, Golfsmith, iTunes or Kohls gift cards. Whether the cards are given as gifts or used personally, its a good offer. not to be outdone, Rite Aid is offering $10 is +Up Rewards if you purchase $50 in Discover Home Improvement gift cards, which are able to be used at dozens of retailers that cater to do-it-yourselfers including Home Depot, Do It Best, Ace, Tractor Supply and more. see the full list and other card details here: www.homeimprovementgiftcard. com/home.html Also on the topic of gift cards, Price chopper is offering three times the fuel rewards when you purchase Lowes, itunes, Applebees, Sears, Curtis Lumber and Regal Cinema gift cards through June 16.

3-d printing predicted to mold our tomorrows


By Eric AdlEr The Kansas City Star

KANSAS CITY, Mo. _ Tim Middleton lives and breathes now, but the mind of the 42-year-old Eudora, Kan., man often oats to the future, to what one might call the printable life. It is a time _ with tangible signs popping up with increasing frequency around the globe _ when nearly any product one needs is created by simply pushing a button and printing it out in usable three dimensions. A pair of glasses? Print it. A knee joint? Print it. Red taillight lens for a 65 Mustang? Print it. A birthday cake, a prom dress, a fullsize house for a family of four? Print away. I have attempted printing my own shoes, Middleton said, laughing. He is a graphic designer who in the past two years has instructed more than 60 people on the art and science of 3-D printing in Saturday classes at Hammerspace, a community workshop in Kansas City for builders, hobbyists and inventors. Theyre kind of hard, Middleton said of his shoes. The material is a little uncomfortable. But it is absolutely a possibility. More than possible: Such specialty 3-D-printed shoes already exist, produced and sold along with 3-D-printed nylon bathing suits, jewelry and dresses by Continuum Fashion of New York. Cakes, cookies, sailboats, toys, architectural models, musical instruments, weapons, prosthetic hands and legs: All are items in recent years proved to be producible by 3-D printers. Interest is high enough that the federal government last year earmarked $30 million to help support a new public-private institute in Youngstown, Ohio, dedicated to promoting and funding 3-D printing research. It is a technology _ although already considered overhyped in some circles _ that many manufacturing experts say is even now only in its infancy, at a place similar to where personal and business computing was in the 1970s. Like computing, they said, 3-D printing not only is likely to change the things we make and how we make and sell them, but also change how we live in good, bad and inconceivable ways. It is a bit tricky to predict, said Hod Lipson, a professor of mechanical engineering at Cornell University and coauthor with Melba Kurman of Fabricated: The New World of 3D Printing, a 2013 book on the promises and perils of an emerging technology. It is a little like trying to sit down in the 1970s and predict how computers were going to be used. Everyone could predict it would automate payrolls, but no one ever predicted social media. Given that caveat, Lipson predicted of 3-D printing: It is going to change everything. Exactly when, how and how much, of course, is hard to say.

It took ve hours and ten minutes to print this coffee mug at the Prototype Studio at Hallmark in Kansas City, Mo.

A May article in The New England Journal of Medicine described how two Michigan doctors used a 3-D printer to save an infants life by printing a custom tracheal splint to support the babys airway. In the last year, meanwhile, one young mans mission to use a 3-D printer to produce a workable handgun sparked immediate outcry from the public and concerned government ofcials who envision the technology being used to put caches of cheap and untraceable guns into the hands of criminals or terrorists. In May, Cody Rutledge Wilson, a Texas law student who describes himself as a crypto-anarchist, test-red a rudimentary handgun he created on a 3-D printer he bought on eBay. He released his gun design online, prompting the U.S. State Department to demand that he remove it. Business ethicist Kirk O. Hanson of Santa Clara University said that improved technologies frequently usher in fresh fears. Better 2-D printing fostered high-grade counterfeiting. The Internets role in money laundering continues to reveal itself. Hanson said of 3-D printing: This is simply the latest technological breakthrough that has great potential for good and great potential for harm. Understanding 3-D printing and the future requires understanding how most products are made now. The range is broad, from printing to stamping, casting to injection molding. Many manufacturing processes involve tooling or machining parts _ a subtractive process that produces a part by cutting or chipping or shaving away. You start with a block of material and subtract things until you get what you want, said Robert Landers, a professor of mechanical engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla. But the rst word in 3-D printings alternative name, additive manufacturing, tells how it is different. Instead of chipping or cutting away at some material, a 3-D printers nozzle runs back and forth, over and over again, oozing out layer after layer of whatever material is inside. It could be spools of plastic, metal, ceramic or cookie dough. These printers have already been used to create a heart valve. Some predict the printers will use biological tissue to create entire replacement organs. We added this service a few years ago as a way for customers to conveniently plan a party on-line. The feedback has been great. Customers love it, Natale said. Price Chopper is doing something similar to Gerritys with the customizable ordering of party trays and cakes but delivery is not available. It does require a signicant commitment, said Heidi Reale, the direc-

Instructions for what to build are guided by software, much of which is free online. The 3-D printer builds a whole object in place, as if it were growing from the bottom up. Or it creates parts of an object that can be assembled. Printers can be small enough to t on a desk, using spools of thermoplastic lament that looks like weed trimmer line. Or they can be huge, with nozzles pouring out stone-like material to create walls or 10-foot-tall sculptures. 3-D printing technology is not new. It rst came to public notice in the early 1980s, and industries and scientists began toying and experimenting with it soon after. The airplane, automotive and other industries have used industrial 3-D printers for years to design and test specialty parts. Few people, at this point, envision 3-D printing replacing the cost-effective injection molding or other mass production techniques in the near future, if ever. When you make parts for the automotive industry, for example, you have thousands and hundreds of thousands of components, said Landers, the Missouri professor. I dont think it will ever compete with the truly highvolume stuff. It is very good for small volume. For many companies, that means using the printers to work out kinks in prototypes before sending a product into mass production. In Kansas City, Garmin uses several 3-D printers for prototypes. Likewise, Hallmark Cards has seven 3-D printers to test ideas and create small volumes of ornaments and keepsakes. Weve had them for at least six years, Hallmarks Scott Browning said of the printers. Ours are running every day, most of the day. What is new is the growth in the industry, particularly in personal 3-D printers produced by companies with names like 3D Systems Corp., MakerBot, Stratasys, MakerGear, FlashForge and Zen Toolworks. In May, Staples became the rst major U.S. retailer to announce it would soon be selling 3D Systems Cube 3-D printer at its stores, beginning in Europe, and also online starting at $1,299. Additive manufacturing and 3-D printing is a $2.2 billion industry, according to a 2013 report prepared by Wohlers Associates, an industry consulting group in Fort Collins, Colo. It is barely a speck compared with the $1.8 trillion generated by U.S. manufacturing last year. But in 2010, 2011 and 2012, the global market for 3-D or additive manufactured products grew 24.1 percent, 29.4 percent and 28.6 percent respectively, according to the report. Sales last year of industrial 3-D printers (those costing $5,000 or more) grew 19.3 percent, which is nothing compared with the personal 3-D printer market: up more than 300 percent each year on average since 2008. tor of shopper and digital marketing for the Schenectady, N.Y.-based grocery chain. She said that the possibility is not out of the realm. It doesnt mean that down the road it wont be a possibility but not in the near future. Schiel said the delivery portion of the business is labor intensive but he believes its one more added facet to keep the stores competitive.

TEA

Bel-Air and Gordon Ramsay at the London in West Hollywood, Calif., offer afternoon tea menus. Corporate America is taking notice. Soda giants PepsiCo and Coca-Cola are plugging teas through brands such as Brisk, Honest Tea and Fuze. Tea-infused waters, soft drinks and energy drinks are increasingly prevalent. So too are teaavored booze options such as spiked iced-tea brand Twisted Tea and Arnold Palmer Hard, a mixture of iced tea, lemonade and alcohol. Even Howard Schultz, chief executive of coffee giant Starbucks Corp., is betting big on tea. Last year, the company expanded its $1 billion Tazo Tea business by opening its rst Tazo tea shop. Starbucks also spent $620 million for mallbased tea retailer Teavana, which it hopes to expand to at least 1,000 locations from 300 currently. We could do for tea what weve done for coffee, Schultz told investors. This is a big, big

opportunity. But Earl Grey still has a while to go before overtaking joe. Last year, the American tea industry pulled in $987 million in revenue at the wholesale level, a tenth of the $9.6 billion for coffee manufacturers, according to research group IBISWorld. And its not just java _ tea consumption domestically also lags behind bottled water, soft drinks, milk and juice. Still, the ancient brew may be catching up. Tea drinking is growing in the U.S. at a faster rate than coffee, according to IBISWorld. In the past decade, the amount of tea consumed by the average American grew 22.5 percent and will rise an additional 3 percent in the next ve years. Coffee slumped 1.9 percent between 2003 and 2013 and will grow less than 1 percent through 2018. Coffee and soda are facing a backlash from authorities and consumers over health concerns. Coffee also is struggling with supply chain disruptions and an overcrowded market. Tea could rocket past coffee sales by 2017, coffee and tea industry panelists said at last years World Tea Expo in Las

Vegas. Two years ago, a record 281 million pounds of tea was imported into the U.S., according to the Tea Association of the USA. The surge is driven by consumers such as Christopher Caplan, 21, who in the past year has gone from drinking as many as ve cups of coffee a day to weaning himself off the really addictive stuff with a daily cup of tea. It got really bad, the Koreatown musician said of his coffee habit. And theres so much more variety that you can get out of tea _ not all of them caffeinated, so many with ingredients that have healthful qualities. The tea market is attempting to shatter its reputation as a bland liquid served from unwieldy porcelain pots. Specialty iced teas _ Southern sweet tea, tea lattes, Thai teas, Taiwanese boba and more _ are increasingly common on menus, according to the National Restaurant Association. The beverage is becoming more portable _ a key selling point for an on-the-go nation. The growth rate of bottled tea sales is outpacing that of soft drinks, according to sev-

eral studies. More teas are being sold in convenience stores and fast-food outlets such as Sonic Drive-In, which in April launched a new line of iced green teas with multitudes of avor combinations. Now, tea retailers are targeting coffee shops as they attempt to bring tea out of the home. Its a tricky endeavor, considering that Starbucks alone has about 13,000 coffee-focused cafes in the country. There are 4,000 specialty tearooms and retail shops in the U.S., according to the Tea Association.

Still, small chains such as Bird Pick Tea & Herb and Chado Tea Room _ where one wireless password is no coffee _ have gradually expanded. And experts believe that new gadgets _ one mimics an espresso maker by quickly creating standardized cups of loose-leaf tea _ could allow tea to be served via drive-throughs. Everyones been really jumping on the bandwagon, especially in L.A., said IBISWorld analyst Agata Kaczanowska. Teas popularity has been a long time coming for the self-

taught DeCandia, 53, who early in his tea career at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf had to create blends by mixing leaves with a snow shovel on a steel oor. When he arrived at the company, fresh off a gig as an oil distribution manager for Halliburton Co., he was a warehouse worker. There was no ofcial position for a tea expert partly because low demand didnt warrant one. These days, teas share of overall Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf sales has increased to 15 percent from 3 percent in the late 1990s. The company this year erected two buildings at the Camarillo warehouse dedicated to the tea operation, giving DeCandia 10 times the space he used to have. A new tea bagging machine was ordered. DeCandia _ tanned, ip-opwearing and fond of the word dude _ even penned a childrens book called Master Davey and the Magic Tea House. The recent popularity of his favorite drink, of which he downs three gallons a day, hits close to home. My daughter says that all of her friends dig tea now, he said. And why wouldnt they?

BAD OMEN? Warnings from companies about the strength of their quarterly earnings have been coming more quickly than usual. Video game retailer GameStop, for example, said late last month that it expects to earn up to 7 cents per share in the second quarter. That was below the 8 cents that analysts had been forecasting. GameStop is one of 76 companies in the Standard & Poors 500 index that have given a lower-than-expected forecast for second-quarter results, according to S&P Capital IQ. To be sure, another 19 companies have offered higher-than-expected forecasts. But the ratio of 4:1 for discouraging-to-encouraging profit forecasts is worse than the 10-year average of 2:1. S&P 500 earnings growth

HIGH-FREQUENCY DOMINATION The computers have already taken over. The growth of high-frequency trading has slowed in recent years, but it still dominates the market. Last year, 51 percent of all shares traded in the U.S. were handled by highfrequency traders, according to estimates from the Tabb Group and World Federation of Exchanges. These kinds of traders are fully automated, and theyre making trades in fractions of a second. To be sure, high-frequency traders share of the market is down from 55 percent in 2011 and a peak of 61 percent in 2009. But its still well above the 21 percent that they controlled in 2005.

STILL UPBEAT The stock market has slowed since reaching a peak on May 21. But Wall Street remains undeterred, with many strategists sticking with their forecasts for continued gains in 2013. Credit Suisse strategists even raised their forecast on Wednesday. They expect the S&P 500 to end the year at 1,730, up from their prior forecast of 1,640. That would be a 7.5 percent climb from Wednesdays close. They say that stocks still look cheap relative to bonds and that lower commodity prices should help the global economic recovery continue.

Upside for autos


InsiderQ&A

David Whiston
Who he is: Auto stock analyst for Morningstar Outlook: Auto stocks still have room ro run.

U.S. auto sales have risen 7 percent this year. Sales of high-margin pickup trucks are booming. The growth has fueled a nice run for auto industry stocks. But is it too late for investors to jump in? Morningstar auto analyst David Whiston doesnt think so. He says theres still upside in autos, particularly Ford and General Motors. The Chicago-based analyst expects U.S. sales to keep rising in the next few years, as automakers roll out new vehicles and run their global operations more efficiently. What is your forecast for U.S. auto sales? For the year, 15.2 million to 15.5 million. Every month, other than April, weve been roughly in that range. Youve got a lot of great product available from many manufacturers, imported or domestic. Readily available credit. Pretty stable gas prices. Theres still a very old fleet. Both Ford and GM shares are near 52-week highs. Are they still good investments? I think both GM and Ford are still cheap. For GM, I have a fair value estimate of $52. On Ford, my valuation is $21. (GM is trading around $34, while Ford is around $15). Im still looking for a couple of things. One is a continued increase in their main engine of profit generation, the United States. Ford is operating at a very high level. GM still has lower margins in North America than Ford, because of things like outsourcing too much of their information technology, and not embracing common vehicle platforms as quickly. GM has a lot of inefficiencies; theyre going to clean that up over time. U.S. auto sales are still coming off one of the most severe lows ever. In 2009 we sold only 10.4 million vehicles. That was the worst year per capita since at least 1951. A normative level of demand of low 16 million to low 17 million is not unrealistic. The driver population is increasing by about 1 percent a year. Combine that with ongoing restructurings at GM and Ford, I think its a really attractive story for investors. U.S. pickup truck sales are up 21 percent this year. How will that impact GM and Ford earnings? It should be good news for both because this is a segment that even Toyota cant touch them in. The (Toyota) Tundra has not lived up to Toyotas expectations. Theyre pretty much retreating in that segment now. These vehicles are the most profitable the Detroit Three make. What do you think of Tesla Motors? I love the product and I love the management team. But people forget this is an automobile company at the end of the day, not a tech company. Theyre not money-making cars. The revenue theyre getting from selling those zero-emission credits is really material to them. You need enough scale as an automaker to survive in any part of the business cycle, not just in an upswing. Were pretty conservative long-term investors. Answers edited for content and clarity.

Utility stocks have gone from rst to worst. After soaring 18.4 percent through the end of April, theyve since plunged 9.6 percent. Its a similar story for telecom companies, and makers of toothpaste and other consumer staples. Since the beginning of May, these three groups are the worst performers of the 10 sectors that make up the Standard & Poors 500 index. Expect the trend to continue, strategists say. Consumer condence is at its highest level in almost six years, and home prices soared 12 percent in April compared to a year earlier their biggest jump since 2006. Thats pushing investors toward stocks that do best in a strong economy, such as nancials. Defensive stocks rallied early in the year, when doubts about the economic recovery were high.

15-year fixed mortgage tops 3 percent


The average rate on a 15-year fixed mortgage rose above 3 percent this week for the first time in a year. Speculation that the Federal Reserve may soon slow its bond purchases has pushed mortgage rates higher over the last month. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note, which mortgage rates track, hit its highest level in over two years last week.
MIN INVEST PHONE

Defensive sectors tend to be big dividend payers. S&P 500 stocks that pay dividends rose 2 percent in May, only a third of the 6 percent gain for non-payers. Utility, telecom and consumer staples stocks remain the markets most expensive relative to their earnings and other valuation measures, says Goldman Sachs strategist David Kostin. He suggests better values can be found in the nancial and industrial sectors.

Investors are getting more comfortable with risk. Everything from consumer confidence to the housing market to the overall economy has shown improvement in recent months. That has led to increased confidence in stocks whose Stock profits rise and fall the most with the Screener strength of the economy. These sectors are called cyclical stocks because their fortunes are highly dependent on where the economy is in its cycle. Examples of cyclical stocks include department stores, banks and electronics makers. This screen from JPMorgan shows cyclical stocks that generate large amounts of cash per share and are rated as Overweight by its analysts.

Ask the Fool

Why should I invest in stocks if they all go down with the market? There may be another big drop, so shouldnt I get out? G.T., Biddeford, Maine Successful investors have learned that the value of individual stocks as well as the overall market will fluctuate over time, sometimes soaring or sinking sharply. Over the long haul, if youve bought stocks at undervalued prices, they should approach or exceed their intrinsic value. But that can take time, which is why successful investors also need patience. Exiting stocks makes sense if you really have little or no faith in them. But think twice about exiting in anticipation of a drop, as no one knows exactly what the market will do in the short term. You dont want to be sitting on the sidelines for months or years, missing out on gains. That said, if you feel sure that any holding is very overvalued, selling can make sense. *** If you sell a stock that you hold in a Roth IRA for a loss, can you deduct the loss when you take money out of the Roth? You can deduct investing losses in regular brokerage accounts, but what about Roths? H.S., Galena, Ohio If you follow the rules, youll pay no tax on your Roth withdrawals, but youll also get no tax benefits from losses. Since the overall long-term trend of the market is upward, though, the Roths benefits tend to far outweigh the costs. For example, imagine investing $5,000 per year in your Roth and earning an average annual gain of 8 percent. In 25 years, youd have more than $365,000, and youd be able to take it all out tax-free!

Why Bother With Stocks?

The Motley Fool


Fools School

Match and Outperform


It might seem smart to trust your money to professional mutual fund managers, letting them decide what to invest it in. But consider: Most managed stock mutual funds tend to underperform the overall stock market average. Many charge steep loads (sales fees), sometimes topping 5 percent. More standard is the annual expense fee, which is typically around 1 percent to 2 percent. Even that can significantly hurt your performance. Many fund managers are eager to attract more investment dollars to boost their fee income. But as a fund grows bigger, with more money to invest, its more likely to park some in less promising investments and to have its overall performance suffer. Fortunately, instead of ending up invested in funds that lose to the market, you can choose to match the market average. Invest your longterm money in index funds designed to track the performance of a broad market index, such as the S&P 500 or the Dow Jones Wilshire 5000.

The S&P 500 is an index of 500 leading companies in America. The Dow Jones Wilshire 5000, a whole market index, contains almost every U.S. stock. There are even broader indexes, such as the FTSE Global Equity Index, which includes more than 7,400 securities in 47 different countries and tracks about 98 percent of the worlds investable market value. Investments such as the Vanguard Total World Stock Index ETF will easily park you in it. Index funds usually have extremely low fees sometimes less than 0.20 percent (thats a fifth of 1 percent). Theres little turnover within them, too, so commission costs are minimal. Best of all, investing in index funds is simple, taking very little time or energy. Once youve invested in them, you can forget about them (ideally adding money regularly, though). However the stock market performs in the coming years, your index fund will roughly track that.

Name That Company

My dumbest investment would be when I rolled over about $30,000 worth of retirement account money to Fidelity years ago. A perky young fellow from Fidelity strongly encouraged me to invest in its Growth Company Fund. This was back in January 2000, before so many growth stocks tanked. Ironically, I did sense that many tech stocks were due to crash and burn, but I didnt bother to check what the fund held. I assumed that the fund managers would be smart enough to avoid damage from crashes. Sigh. T.G., online The Fool Responds: Many professional investors as well as amateurs were stung when the market imploded. But over time, it has recovered. Many brokers and investment salespeople dont have great track records or your best interests at heart, but others do. The Fidelity Growth Company Fund actually has a strong longterm record. Over the past decade, it has averaged 10.3 percent annual growth, and since its inception about 30 years ago, it has averaged 12.8 percent annually. Still, you would have done well to take your own market assessment into account in your decision-making. Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

Reverse Growth

DuPont (NYSE: DD) is becoming more of a science company, and that could bode well for investors. The company has been pursuing growth opportunities that create higher value for example, buying Danisco, a global enzyme and specialty food ingredients company, while jettisoning its performance coatings unit, a lower-margin commodity business. DuPonts strategy is to build and leverage its science lead in agriculture and nutrition, bio-based industrials and advanced materials. It still faces stiff competition, though, in agriculture, where it faces the likes of Monsanto and Dow Chemical. Competition with Monsanto cost DuPont a lot in legal fees, and ended with DuPont agreeing to a $1.75 billion licensing deal with the seed giant. So now DuPont and Monsanto will collaborate as DuPont gains access to some key patents in Monsantos portfolio. DuPont itself has a vast intellectual property portfolio, providing a strong base for future growth. To that end, the company has set long-termgrowth targets to grow its sales by 7 percent each year while its operating earnings are expected to grow at a 12 percent annual clip. The main knock against DuPont right now is a stock price that isnt quite a bargain unless its growth rates rise. For maximum potential growth, consider adding the company to your watch list and waiting for a dip in price to offer a bigger margin of safety.

Q: Half the employees in our department are young people in their 20s, while the rest of us are over 40. The younger folks are denitely a different breed. Their ringleader, Mike, is rude, arrogant and disrespectful. He likes to order people around and create unnecessary drama. In staff meetings, he does all the talking. Several of us complained to our manager about Mike, but she didnt do anything. When we went to human resources, they just referred the issue back to our boss. Now Mike has been promoted to team leader and struts around the ofce like hes running the show. Most of the older employees have been here for many years and would like to retire from this company. But we are tired of working with an ofce bully. Do you have any suggestions for dealing with this kind of person? A.: I do have some suggestions, but you probably wont like them. Your young colleagues cocky, self-centered attitude is undoubtedly annoying, but youve offered no evidence to support labeling him a bully. Bullies are cruel

and intimidating. Mike just sounds like a jerk. Despite his jerkiness, Mike has recently been promoted, which is a clear sign of management support. Continuing to gripe about him could easily backre and damage your own career. When one co-worker has difculty with anothers personality, management often views the complainer as the source of the conict. You also fail to indicate how Mikes aggravating behavior creates any actual business problems, which makes me wonder exactly what you have complained about. Complaints to management should always focus on work-related issues, not personal irritations. Finally, you and the other long-termers appear to be promoting generational warfare. Branding the younger group as a different breed sounds like dangerous and divisive stereotyping, which is anything but healthy. If one of these youngsters should eventually become your boss, that attitude will not serve you well. Q: No matter how hard I try, I cant get my boss organized. Hes always late and constantly asks for information at the last minute. Although he told me is very unlikely that my condition will substantially improve, I would like my wishes regarding specic life-sustaining treatments, as indicated on the attached document entitled My Particular Wishes to be followed.

to manage his calendar, he still makes appointments himself and sometimes gets doublebooked. I have offered numerous suggestions, but he hasnt tried any of them. He doesnt even seem to realize he has a problem. As his assistant, I feel that I should be able to x this, but I dont know how. A: Sad to say, I am not terribly optimistic about your ability to improve this situation. In matters of organization, you and your scattered boss are simply opposite personality types. This combination is not unusual, because chaotic managers often rely on meticulously thorough assistants to save them from themselves. While some of these assistants relish the feeling of being indispensible, others are driven absolutely bonkers by their disorganized bosses. If you fall into the latter category, you will have to decide whether your managers good qualities outweigh his inefciency, because that trait is not likely to disappear.

SERVING THE PUBLIC TRUST SINCE 1881

XXXXXXXXX, XXXXXXXX XX 2013 Page XX

OUR OPINION: KINGSTON PAYMENTS

Ethical conduct is as easy as ABC


ND YET AGAIN we have a public employee who cant understand why the behavior was page report released by Kingston, see rule number one before complaining about no one talking to you. And the third and most important rule: You dont have to break any law to be unethical. In the end, this isnt about violating a law or a municipal policy. Its about having the moral compass that can tell you when to pause and think things through. This was one such case. Police do a difcult and dangerous job, and the public owes them respect and due compensation. But ofcers, particularly brass, must remeber how important public trust is to getting their job done. That trust is threatened by this behavior. Even when well intentioned, if police accept payment out of approved procedure for doing their job, they open themselves up to questions and doubt. Suddenly, the public has the right to ask what other compromises they are willing to make for personal prot. Admittedly, there are gray areas when it comes to ethical behavior. This was not one such case. And the fact that Hunsinger seems unable to understand that is the real crime here.

wrong. Former Kingston Assistant Police Chief Dan Hunsinger refuses to be made a scapegoat. He complains he wasnt contacted and no one returned his calls during an investigation into unreported payments to Kingston cops doing after-hours security work, proving they had already made up their minds. He grumbles about an effort to make this out to be some sort of criminal conspiracy. Note Hunsinger doesnt deny that he and outgoing Chief Keith Keiper violated a 2009 municipal policy that mandates prior approval for police to provide private security, and that payment for such security was supposed to pass through Kingstons payroll system, as an investigation from an outside law rm revealed. So, rst rule of ethical behavior to remember: If you did what someone accuses you of, youre not a scapegoat. The second rule: If the evidence is as conclusive as it seemed to be in the 200-plus

A little advice for the Republican Party: Chill out


YOUD THINK theyd never seen a scandal before. Like the nerd hero of some R-rated sex comedy who suddenly nds himself alone with a willing girl for the rst time, some on the Republican right are giddy, hyperventilating and acting a little goofy at the troubles now plaguing Team Obama. Not that one cant understand their eagerness. It must feel like Wile E. Coyote nally nailing that bleeping Road Runner after years of Acme product failures. Similarly, after years of trying to manufacture scandals out of Palin mumblings, Limbaugh rantings and pixie dust (see ACORN, Shirley Sherrod, death panels and birthers), the right suddenly nds that it nally has some charges of real substance with which to yoke the White House. News that the IRS has unfairly targeted conservative groups is, indeed, troubling, outrageous and offensive to our fundamental notions of fairness and freedom. Youd think it would be difcult to overstate the seriousness of these misdeeds. But the modern conservative movement starts out with overstatement and works its way up from there. So, conating this disaster and the lesscompelling Benghazi story, a chorus of gures on the right Dick Morris and Allen West among them has begun raising the dread specter of impeachment. seen that impression quantied yet again from within the partys own ranks.

OTHER OPINION: ON HIKES AND TAXES

Utility rates go up, but rarely drop


Gillespie plans to introduce a package of legislation that would ultimately eliminate all school residential property taxes. His plan would increase the states personal income tax from the rate of 3.07 percent to 4.5 percent and add food and clothing to items taxed under the state sales and use tax. It would also increase the rate on those items from 6 percent to 7 percent, with those funds being transferred into a newly created Residential Property Tax Elimination Fund. Rep. Groves legislation would allow most school districts to implement an additional earned income tax, mercantile tax or business privilege tax. Additional revenue would have to be used for a dollar-to-dollar elimination or reduction in school district property taxes. He said a school district would have the exibility to choose the tax rates that are right for it. Both ideas have some merit, and well hold off on endorsing one approach or another, but its just good to see our lawmakers take the lead on this issue, which is important to many local folks. Everyday heroes: Cheers to the everyday heroes passersby who helped save ve children from a burning building last week. Isael Vega was walking by a house on Prospect Street in York when he saw children on a roof. He climbed up a wrought iron porch pillar and handed them down to Juan Torres on the ground. Chuck Nispel and Roy Hedrick, who were working nearby, also came to the rescue, using a ladder to help children escape the ames. This is a great example of people getting involved and preventing what might have been a horric tragedy.
York Daily Record

SSORTED thoughts on assorted subjects: Fee hikes: Heres something weve long wondered about utility price increases: Often, the rationale for such bill hikes is that the utility must pay for infrastructure improvements. That, in part, is the reason given for recent rate hike requests by Columbia Gas and York Water Co. Cost to be covered in this rate ling include replacement costs for over 30 miles of aging pipeline, said York Water CEO Jeff Hines. The money would also be used to pay for lter plant replacements and improvements to two dams. OK, it costs money to replace those pipes and like with any business, those costs are passed on to customers. But what happens when the infrastructure project is completed and paid off via the increased rates? Do the rates go back down proportionally? That rarely, if ever, seems to happen. Rather, the higher fees seem to become part of the utilitys revenue base. And when another infrastructure project is needed, the utility asks the state Public Utility Commission for yet another rate hike. Increasing costs tend to be a fact of life, but shouldnt fee increases attributed specically to infrastructure improvements be nite and enforced by the PUC as such? Property tax reform: Its encouraging to see two state lawmakers from York County playing leading roles in efforts to reform property taxes in Pennsylvania. State Reps. Keith Gillespie, R-Hellam Township, and Seth Grove, R-Dover Township, presented their ideas for property tax reforms during a state House Finance Committee information meeting Monday.

COMMENTARY
JOE BUTKIEWICZ
WHEN I began working for The Times Leader in 1982 as a correspondent I would type my stories at home and deliver my copy to the paper. Before that climb up the marble steps to the newsroom, Id pass a bronze plaque bearing the names of the men who worked for the Wilkes-Barre Publishing Company who answered the call to the colors of World War II. The plaque is tall, wide and substantial, suggesting the signicance of the effort and sacrice of the 122 men named in three columns. When my byline was rst published, some of those veterans still worked at the paper, including Paul Arthur and James Lee. There are many familiar local newspaper names on the Honor Roll including Tom Considine and Robert Patton, who went on to work at the Sunday Independent, and William Watson who founded the Sunday Dispatch. Publishing company owners Harrison Hal Smith and A. DeWitt Smith are listed on the plaque, but had sold the paper and moved on by the time I started here. That sale precipitated the newspaper strike in 1978 that yielded another daily paper and competition that lingers to this day. That conict was heated and occasionally violent even when I started so its not too surprising that the management felt strongly about commemorating the effort. At some point in the late 1980s or so, the Honor Roll was removed and replaced with a new plaque honoring the publisher who led the newspaper through the strike.

This plaque honors the men working at Wilkes-Barre Publishing Company who served their country during World War II.

CLARK VAN ORDEN/THE TIMES LEADER

The strike period was very difcult but a newspaper war cant compare to a real war. And nothing says as much as the name Kenneth Hobbs at the top of the honor roll and the star aside the name. Hobbs lived on Andover Street in Wilkes-Barre, graduated from Meyers High School in 1937 and went to work in the advertising department of the Wilkes-Barre Publishing Company, according to published reports from back then. Like many of his generation, Hobbs went into military service during World War II. He reached the rank of corporal and was shipped to Europe where he was killed in action in 1945 in Germany. In August, 1948 the Wilkes-Barre Record the morning paper then reported on the belated funeral service held for Hobbs, complete with military honors. The pastor of Second Welsh Presbyterian Church

ofciated at the funeral home. Military services were held at the grave in Fern Knoll Burial Park, Dallas. The names of the military honor guard were listed as was the name of the bugler. Its a fair guess he played Taps. Twenty ve years ago, when the plaques were switched, many of the employees even the ones who were at the paper during the strike were unhappy that the original plaque was removed. We all worried that it was sold for scrap. But a new owner and a new general manager gave the nod last month to restoring the original Honor Roll to its rightful place. On Thursday by coincidence, the anniversary of D-Day it was back home. And with that we offer the commemoration on the bronze tablet: Proudly we pay tribute to the members of our organization who answered the call to the colors.

A message from Qusair: Well count on Putin, thanks


ON WEDNESDAY, Qusair fell to the Bashar alAssad regime in Syria. Qusair is a strategic town that connects Damascus with Assads Alawite heartland on the Mediterranean, with its ports and Russian naval base. Its a major strategic shift. Assads forces can now advance on rebel-dominated areas in central and northern Syria, including Aleppo. For the rebels, its a devastating loss of territory, morale and their supply corridor to Lebanon. No one knows if this reversal of fortune will be the last, but everyone knows that Assad now has the upper hand. What altered the tide of battle was brazen outside intervention. A hardened, well-trained, well-armed Hezbollah force from the terrorist Shiite group that dominates Lebanon and answers to Iran crossed into Syria and drove the rebels out of Qusair, which Syrian artillery has left a smoking ruin. This is a huge victory not just for Tehran but also for Moscow, which sustains Assad in power and prizes its warm-water port at Tartus, Russias only military base outside of the former Soviet Union. Vladimir Putin has stationed a dozen or more Russian warships offshore, further protecting his strategic outpost and his Syrian client. The losers? NATO-member Turkey, the major supporter of the rebels; Jordan, Americas closest Arab ally, now drowning in half a million Syrian refugees; and Americas Gulf allies, principal weapons suppliers to the rebels. And the United States whose bystander president, having declared that Assad must go, that he has lost all legitimacy and that his fall is just a matter of time, is looking not just feckless but clueless. President Obama doesnt want U.S. boots on the ground. Fine. No one does. But between nothing and invasion lie many intermediate measures: arming the rebels, helping Turkey maintain a safe zone in northern Syria, grounding Assads murderous air force by attacking airelds. Obama could have chosen any rung on the ladder. He chose none. Weeks ago, as battle fortunes began changing, the administration leaked that it was contemplating possibly, well maybe, arming the rebels. Then nothing. Obama simply does not understand that if America is completely hands-off, it invites hostile outside intervention. In 1958, President Eisenhower venerated by todays fashionable realists for his strategic restraint landed Marines in Lebanon to protect the proAmerican government from

threats from Syria and Egypt. In the 1973 Yom Kippur War, Russia threatened to send troops on behalf of the Egyptian army. President Nixon threatened a U.S. counteraction, reinforced the Sixth Fleet and raised the U.S. worldwide military alert level to DEFCON 3. Russia stood down. Thats how the region works. Power deterring power. Obama deals instead in empty abstractions such as international legitimacy and useless conclaves, such as Friends of Syria conferences. Assad, in contrast, has a real friend. Putin knows Obama. Having watched Obamas retreat in Eastern Europe, his passivity at Russian obstructionism on Iran, his abject bended-knee reset policy, Putin knows he has nothing to fear from the American president. Result? The contemptuous Putin oods Syria with weapons. Iran, equally disdainful, sends Revolutionary Guards to advise and shore up Assads forces. Hezbollah invades Syria and seizes Qusair. Obamas response? No warning that such balance-altering provocations would trigger even minimal American response. Even Obamas chemical weapons red line is a farce. Its very pronouncement advertised passivity, signaling that anything short of WMD say, massacring 80,000 innocents using conventional weapons would draw no U.S. response. And when that WMD red line was nally crossed, Obama went into lawyerly overdrive to erase it. Is it any wonder that Assads allies are on full offensive Hezbollah brazenly joining the ground war, Russia sending a small armada and mountains of military materiel, Iran warning everyone to stay out. Obamas response is to send the secretary of state, hat in hand, to Moscow. And John Kerry returns actually thinking hes achieved some great diplomatic breakthrough a peace conference that Russia will dominate and use to relegitimize Assad and marginalize the rebels. Just to make sure Kerry understood his place, Putin kept him waiting outside his ofce for three hours. The Russians know how to send messages. And the one from Qusair is this: If youre ghting for your life and have your choice of allies Obama bearing international legitimacy or Putin bearing Russian naval protection, Iranian arms shipments and thousands of Hezbollah ghters which would you choose?

Michigan actor, like Ernie the play, keeps on going


The owers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land Every spring, Ernie Harwell slid into baseball season by reciting that biblical verse on the radio. And now, every spring, Will Young slides into Ernie Harwell by shaving his mustache. My wife says, Oh, no, there it goes, Young says, laughing. And the transformation begins. For the third year in a row, Young, a sprightly 73, will portray Harwell, the beloved Detroit Tigers broadcaster, in the play Ernie, which reopens this week at the City Theatre, in the shadow of Comerica Park in Detroit. I was blessed to be able to write that play. I was more blessed to meet Young, who so thoroughly captures the voice, movement and heart of Harwell, that people leave the theater shaking their heads and saying, If I didnt know better, Id swear it was him. The funny thing is, Young arrived in Detroit in 1961, soon after Harwell did. He spent decades listening to that famous voice, he says, like everybody else in the car, camping, playing catch with the transistor radio on. But, Young notes, I must be the only person in the state of Michigan who never actually met Ernie. Thats OK. Hes gotten to know him in a way few people could. In Ernie, Young is asked by his fellow actor, T.J. Corbett (who plays a curious,

COMMENTARY

magical boy), to broadcast your life. Young gets to recite stories from Ernies childhood, teenage years, Army service, early broadcasting stints with the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Giants, all the way to his farewell at Comerica Park, less than a year before he died from cancer at 92. He also gets to detail the achingly beautiful love story between Ernie and Lulu, Ernies wife of more than 65 years. One of Youngs most nerve-wracking moments was when the real Lulu Harwell sat in the audience on opening night. Young did everything he could not to look at her. When, afterward, she complimented his performance, he exhaled long enough to blow a curtain open. So far, nearly 44,000 people have seen Young perform this role over three summers. Not bad for a man who gave up acting for nearly 30 years, working as an English and speech teacher in the Berkley school system, driving in every day from Milford, because he wanted a small-town life. It was only after he retired from teaching that Young felt the acting bug again, and landed small roles in local productions. He once told himself, If I could ever get to act once at Purple Rose Theater (in Chelsea), I could never do better than that. Now, this week, he will give his 150th straight leading role performance in Ernie, taking a Cal Ripken Jr. approach by never yet missing a show. Imagine the pressure of having to portray a local legend night after night.

Spring is upon us, the voice of the turtle has been heard and while Harwell has been gone three years, his spirit lives on in those who loved him and one special man who portrays him.
Many patrons hang around after the nal curtain, just to tell Young about the time Ernie came to their church, or let them into the Tiger Stadium booth. And increasingly, people around town or at the market in Milford see him and say, Hiya, Ernie. How do you handle that? Usually, I just say, Thank you. The theater is rich with actors associated with one role. Hal Holbrook as Mark Twain. Theodore Bikel as Tevye. It is impossible for me to imagine anyone better as Ernie Harwell than Will Young. And thats not because he sounds or looks the most like him. Its because Ernies spirit of decency, humility and basic goodness is the same spirit that graces Will Young, the man. The reason audiences love him so much as Ernie is because he is so much like Ernie. Ernie was always encouraging to young guys in the business. So it seems right that one of his nal legacies is giving a 73-yearold man a similar career boost. Spring is upon us, the voice of the turtle has been heard, and while Harwell has been gone three years, his spirit lives on in those who loved him and one special man who portrays him. Especially once he loses the mustache.

W-B Twp. Mayor Panel gaskets is not the top cop need to be xed he gall of Mayor Carl Kuren read with alarm, Mr. Chris T to take over schooling of the I Bellemans statement that no Wilkes-Barre Township Police repairs have been made to the
rubber gaskets on the closure panels on the Market Street Bridge. These gaskets nearly failed during the last ooding event when the river reached a level of 42.66 feet! Considering the increased development in Wyoming, Susquehanna and Bradford counties associated with new construction and fracking pads, runoff will surely increase. I suspect a ood stage level here at 42.66 in all likelihood will be the new normal. PropDepartment. Thats the chief of polices job. I have talked to some police ofcials; they are bitter and morale is down. We have an excellent police department in Wilkes-Barre Township, except for two or three who are cronies for Mayor Kuren. The police chief should stand up to Mayor Kuren. Defend your ofcers or step aside. Now, a safety ofcer is being considered. Thats only to put all employees under the microscope. Their jobs will be

impeded upon, including their performance. Theyll be looking over their shoulders.

How about part of St. Josephs Monastery? How about regionalization for the Wilkes-Barre Township police department? Mayor Carl Kuren, set up meetings with Laurel Run, Ashley, Hanover Township and Wilkes-Barre. Form a partnership, have a dialogue and communication. Have a sit-down to make Wilkes-Barre Township and the area better. Form a neighborhood crime watch. Listen Mayor Kuren, many people can do a lot better job than you can, but you cant see the light. An excellent choice would be administrator Mike Revitt. Hes educated, knows the ins and outs and has the name recognition. Its that simple.

This month, the focus is on mens health


EACH JUnE we celebrate Fathers Day, but did you know that June is also recognized as Mens Health Month? According to the Mens Health network, the purpose of Mens Health Month is to raise awareness of preventable health problems and to encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. Studies show that the most common threats to mens health can be avoided through lifestyle choices. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), men tend to be less involved in their own health than women. As a result, heart disease, cancer, accidents, respiratory infection, stroke, type II diabetes, and suicide account for about 70 percent of the most common health threats to men. The good news is there are ways to reduce the likelihood of these events. Regular physician visits Staying healthy is connected to making the right choices. All men should visit their primary care physician at least once a year. Your personal physician knows your medical history and is in the best position to offer advice. Typically, a physician will recommend regular screenings for cholesterol levels, blood pressure, triglycerides, blood sugar and body mass index. When kept in check, these indicators greatly reduce the chances for heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer and other problems. Regular physician exams may

also reveal other possible warning signs, like unusual moles or lumps that may be precursors to cancer. Your physician will also check your heart and lungs. Remember that a visit with your physician is the time to talk about your health concerns. Be open and honest about any aches or pains. Discuss any changes youve noticed in your health, such as sudden weight gain or loss, balance problems, sudden headaches or appetite changes. Also talk to your physician about anxiety or depression. Men typically try to hide emotional distress, but depression and anxiety are medical conditions that can be treated with medications, counseling or a combination of both. Physical tness Being physically active plays a signicant role in maintaining mens health. Regular physical activity helps control weight, strengthens muscle and bones, improves balance, coordination and cardiovascular health, and reduces the risk of stroke, heart disease and cancer. Small changes in your daily routine can make a big difference. Try taking the stairs instead of an elevator. Walking for 30 minutes four times a week can have a positive impact on your health. Even greater health benets may be drawn from more intense exercise like jogging, swimming, biking, weight training, and organized sports. Talk to your physician about starting an exercise program and get moving. Eating healthy Its no secret that eating right

COMMENTARY

makes you healthier. Many men tend to reach for fast food because its convenient, quick and easy. But frequent fast food meals may take their toll by adding weight and increasing cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Eating a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, proteins, carbohydrates and other healthy foods can help keep your weight in check and improve overall health. In addition, many physicians recommend one to two alcoholic beverages per day, provided that there is no history of alcohol abuse and that the alcohol isnt taken with certain prescribed medications. Studies show that moderate alcohol intake can reduce blood pressure and decrease the risk of stroke and heart disease. Precautions Staying healthy involves taking precautionary measures. Ask your doctor which vaccines are appropriate for you, and make sure you get a u vaccine each year. In addition, be sure you have recommended screenings for prostate, colon, and skin cancer. Cancer is most treatable when its detected early. Finally, take time during Mens Health Month this June to learn how you can take a more active role in your own wellness.

he Wilkes-Barre Cosmos Youth Soccer organization should be embarassed by the actions of its Under 8 year old team coach and some parents. The Hanover Area Youth Soccer U8 team was leading the Cosmos team 5-2 midway through the 4th period when the ofcal had to stop the game and disqualify the Cosmos team due to the conduct of the coach. The game started off innocently enough and the children on both teams were playing well and seemed to be enjoying themselves. The score at half time had Hanover leading 3-2. As the third quarter progressed, Hanover increased the lead to 5-2 and thats when things turned ugly. Some parents became more and more vocal. I say some parents because it was obvious some of the Cosmos parents were as sickened and appalled by the conduct those parents displayed in front of the children as we were. At rst, they started complaining that the Hanover children were clearly older than their children. While a couple of the Hanover kids are bigger than others, all of them had presented their birth certicates at registration and met the age requirements for spring soccer. This was the second time these 2 teams played so if the Cosmos had an issue with the ages, the proper way to handle it would have been to lodge a complaint with the league, after the rst game, not rant and rave on the sidelines in front of the children during the second game. As Hanover started to increase its lead, the parents and coaches turned their attention to the ofcial. One such incident was when the ofcial called for a Hanover throw in. The coach charged the eld demanding to know why. The ofcial explained that the Cosmos kicked the ball out of bounds and that a Cosmo parent,

standing on the sideline, kicked the ball back into play. A couple of the other parents then got up and stood right on the out of bounds line. I dont know what possible reason that would be for except to try to intimidate the Hanover players (6-, 7- and 8-year-olds). The situation deterioriated when the Cosmo coach believed the ofcial should have called an off-side penalty against Hanover. That is when the coachs conduct was so bad that he was ejected from the game, refused to leave the eld and left the ofcial no other choice but to end the game. There is a correct way to handle disagreements. Ranting and raving in front of the kids to the point where they get disqualied and the kids lose the opportunity to compete is clearly the wrong way. I am proud of the Hanover Area Youth Soccer organization, coaches, parents and especially the kids. They perform their best and play with a high level sportsmanship. I feel sorry for the kids on the Cosmos team. They seemed to be enjoying the game and playing their best. There always seems to be a small minority of parents who have to act in such a way to ruin the experience for everyone. The Wilkes-Barre Cosmos Organization should be embarrassed by this incident and should re-educate everyone of the rules of conduct as published by the Wyoming Valley Youth Soccer Association.

Partially finished with a concrete floor, the basement has another fireplace as well as a bar. This is the largest area of the house at 17.1x18. Fitting in a pool table, and dart board to accompany the bar could turn the lower level of the house into an entertainment area. Add in a television and a set of couches and this floor could also become a second sit down/living area for company or relaxation. There is also a small laundry room going off of the basement. The spacious, fenced in back yard is ideal for children or animals to have an area to play and run around. A bird bath and bushes sprinkled throughout the yard set just the little hint of decoration and variety without overwhelming the space. For more information or to set up a viewing contact David Rubbico at his office at (570) 826-1600 or his cell phone at (570) 881-7877.
