It is unclear whether those statements before the Miranda rights warning would be admissible in a criminal trial and, if not, whether prosecutors even need them to win a conviction. Officials said physical evidence, including a 9 mm handgun and pieces of a remote-control device commonly used in toys, was recovered from the scene. The suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, told authorities that his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, only recently recruited him to be part of the attack, two U.S. officials said. The CIA, however, named Tamerlan to a terrorist database 18 months ago, officials said Wednesday, an acknowledgment that will undoubtedly prompt congressional inquiry about whether investigators took warnings from Russian intelligence officials seriously enough. The U.S. officials who spoke to The Associated Press were close to the investigation but insisted on anonymity because

BOSTON — The surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings acknowledged to the FBI his role in the attacks but did so before he was advised of his constitutional rights to keep quiet and seek a lawyer, officials said Wednesday.

Hazleton hospital in merger
Greater Hazleton Health Alliance soon will be part of Lehigh Valley Health Network.
By ANDREW M. SEDER [email protected]



HAZLETON — The everchanging face of local health care is once again going under the knife after Wednesday’s announcement that the Greater Hazleton Health Alliance will soon be part of the Lehigh Valley Health Network. At an official announcement Wednesday at the hospital, James Edwards, president and chief executive officer of the Greater Hazleton Health Alliance, said “Both organizations value their people and realize that’s where the care starts. That’s what has made working together a natural fit and what makes merging a logical choice.” The announcement comes four years after a partnership between the two nonprofit health-care organizations was established and follows similar mergers, purchases and affiliations between other hospitals in the region: • In 2012, Danville-based Geisinger Health System, which operates Geisinger Wyoming Valley in Plains Township and Geisinger South Wilkes-Barre hospitals in Luzerne County, acquired Community Hospital of Scranton. • In recent years the for-profit Community Health System, of

Sheriff’s stance on high-powered weaponry debated
Lackawanna, Monroe counterparts differ on county sheriff’s actions.
By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES [email protected]

Sheriffs in two neighboring counties have differing views on Luzerne County Interim Sheriff John Robshaw’s refusal to sign off on paperwork needed for citizens to buy machine

guns, short-barrel shotguns and rifles and silencers. The federal form to transfer these type of National Firearms Act, or “Class III,” weapons from dealers to individuals requires the signature of the “chief law enforcement officer” in that jurisdiction. The officer is typically the county sheriff in Pennsylvania, though police chiefs and district attorneys also could

qualify. The issue came up locally because Foster Township resident Thomas F. Braddock Jr. sent a letter to Luzerne County officials this week complaining about Robshaw’s failure to consider his transfer request for a fully automatic machine gun he wants for his collection and investment purposes. Robshaw said he won’t sign off on any such requests

because he opposes civilians acquiring automatic guns and silencers and doesn’t want to be responsible if one of these weapons is used in a crime. Lackawanna County Sheriff John Szymanski said he has taken the same stance as Robshaw since the Sandy Hook school shooting in Connecticut.

WILKES-BARRE — A Berwick woman was convicted Wednesday on seven charges relating to a September 2010 fire in Conyngham that caused $1.3 million in damage. Gail Schneider, 44, was found guilty of five counts of arson, one count of reckless burning and one count of criminal Schneider mischief after a Luzerne County jury deliberated for about 90 minutes. Prosecutors say Schneider set the blaze in retaliation for being evicted from the Lantern Lane, South Main Street, building in September 2009 after an incident with her neighbor, Nicole Buak. Schneider’s attorneys argued during the seven-day trial that the fire was not intentionally set but rather was caused by an electrical problem in the building. “I have a sense of peace … and closure,” Buak said after hearing the verdict. “Justice was served today. I don’t have to live in fear anymore.” Prosecutors say Schneider was evicted from the building after Buak had called the police on Schneider twice one evening complaining of noise. Buak testified during the trial that she saw Schneider near her vehicle and then run away. She went to see why Schneider was near her vehicle when she noticed the word “die” carved into her door and then a scratch on her vehicle. “I’m very glad today is over with,” Buak said. “It was hard to watch everything you’ve worked for … just go away.” Assistant District Attorney Shannon Crake requested that Schneider’s bail be revoked and that she be taken to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility beSee GUILTY, Page 10A

NFL draft day changed Trippi’s fortunes
At 92, Pittston native, taken first in 1945, is the oldest living No. 1 pick

in 1999

PITTSTON — When the National Football League announced its No. 1 draft pick in 1945, there wasn’t any fanfare like you can see tonight on the NFL Network and ESPN. But you can be sure that the residents of

Pittston knew who went first — it was the city’s favorite son, Charley Trippi, halfback from the University of Georgia via Pittston High School who was drafted by the Chicago Cardinals. Trippi, now 92, lives in Athens, Ga., and is the oldest living NFL No. 1 pick. USA Today published a feature story about Trippi,

and Wednesday he talked to The Times Leader about his career and his life growing up in Pittston. Growing up in the coal mining town of Pittston was a challenge, Trippi said. “My dad was a miner,” he said. “I

WILKES-BARRE — Luzerne County Specialty Court graduate Kelly said Wednesday she could have gone to prison for screwing up and committing a crime. But, instead, she found the two-year program that was able to get her on the right track, give her a second chance in life and allow her to be a mother to her 3-year-old son. “Now, I’m independent. I’m a strong woman. I don’t know what I would have done (without specialty court),” said Kelly, who did not disclose her last name. “Having depression, or other mental illnesses, doesn’t mean you have to stop living.” Kelly was one of six people who graduated from the program Wednesday. Now in its fourth year, the program saves tax dollars that would be spent on prison lodging while addressing mental illnesses and increasing public safety. Two others, including a military veteran, were accepted into the program Wednesday. “This program is a success because of the people in it,” said county Judge William Amesbury, who presides over the court. “We’re working for the betterment of all.” As of Wednesday, 23 county residents have completed the two-year program. Most offenders who end up in the program face non-violent misdemeanor or felony charges, though some with violent charges might be accepted on a case-by-case basis. A team reviews offenders’ criminal history and psychological assessments before voting whether to ac-

cept them into the program. The illnesses of past participants have included major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and generalized anxiety disorder. Their crimes have ranged from theft and trespassing to terroristic threats and arson. Due to state law and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act regulations, participants of the program cannot be identified. The two clients accepted into the program Wednesday included Joseph, a veteran who will work with the Veterans Administration to complete his program. Joseph was charged with several crimes that he agreed to plead guilty to Wednesday, including criminal conspiracy, retail theft, theft from a motor vehicle, simple assault and resisting arrest. Geri also was accepted into the program and agreed to plead guilty to a charge of retail theft. Geri and Joseph will each serve two years in the program, which is a supervised probationary period. “If you should not be successful (in completing the program), I could sentence you,” Amesbury told the two. Other graduates expressed their gratitude to everyone involved in the program and for helping them through a tough time in their lives. “I’ve come a long way,” said Marty. “It’s easy to be negative. But you’re getting help … that’s how you have to look at it.” Graduates T.J. and Mary, who have produced art that adorns Amesbury’s courtroom, said they both have learned lessons thanks to their time in the program. “I hope to never be in trouble again,” T.J. said. “They taught me how to trust others … how to deal with pain, suffering and (emotions),” Mary said.

Rally gives voice to victims

WILKES-BARRE — He was only 8 years old when the sexual abuse began. “My (relative) showed me what he wanted me to do. I couldn’t understand why he wanted me to do it, but I did it anyway. I made him happy. I remember him telling me not to tell anyone, and I don’t know why, but I felt dirty,” George Steltz told dozens of onlookers who attended a rally Wednesday in downtown Wilkes-Barre to support victims of sexual abuse and crime. The Take Back the Night march and rally, organized by the Victims Resource Center in observance of Sexual Abuse Awareness Month and Victims’ Rights Week, followed a march around Public Square that ended on the lawn of Kirby Health Center on North Franklin Street. Steltz, of Hanover Township, said his abuse continued — at the hands of his relative, then by boys in the neighborhood who also told him not to tell anyone, some of them threatening him if he did. “Grown men started using me, too,” he said. “I was a good target — quiet and submissive.” In adulthood, the abuse plagued him. By 35, he lost his

job, wife, children and house, started drinking and considered suicide, he said. Then a friend pointed him to the Victims Resource Center, where he learned a lot, but “most importantly, that it wasn’t my fault,” he said. Now 47 and a math major at Luzerne County Community College, Steltz finally feels in control of his life. He urged those in the crowd, which included many King’s College and Wilkes University students, to “not be zebras. Let’s stand together, be vigilant and take back the night.” Victims’ family members also spoke at the rally. Donna Kanka, of Monroe Township, N.J., told how her granddaughter, Megan Kanka, was abducted, raped and murdered in 1994 at the hands of a twice-convicted sex offender who lived across the street with two other sex offenders. Neither neighborhood residents nor police knew of their background. “If we knew, we would have (told) her not to go near those people (and) to be careful,” Kanka said. A campaign started by Megan’s family spurred the New Jersey Legislature to pass Megan’s Law, which requires the registration of convicted sexual predators. Every other state followed suit. Susan Hooper described how her brother, Robert Curley, died of thallium poisoning in 1991 at the hands of his wife, Joann Curley, who killed him for his

life insurance. Joann Curley was sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison. Hooper and hundreds of others wrote to the state parole board every year after Joann Curley became eligible for parole, asking that it be denied — and it has been — but Hooper has long wished to address the parole board in person. “They need to feel the impact crime has had on victims and their families, not just read it on paper,” she said. Hooper thanked state Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, for sponsoring Senate Bill 508, which would permit a crime victim or a member of the victim’s family to testify to the parole board. The bill passed the Senate 50-0 and is in the House Judiciary Committee. Citizens’ Voice reporter Mike Sisak described how difficult it was for victims to testify at former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky’s trial and reiterated why most of the victims didn’t report the abuse. Each one thought he was the only victim, said Sisak, who covered the trial last year. Luzerne County Councilman Harry Haas said that becoming a father to his 1-month-old daughter changed his perspective. “Now I worry about her, and I worry about her potentially becoming a victim someday,” he said. “So I salute everybody who has come out tonight to not be a victim (and) also to protect those who can’t protect themselves.”

Work session and regular board meeting will be combined on May 28.

EXETER — A flier with the number 1,168, representing the number of days the Wyoming Area teachers have been without a contract, was passed out to those attending Tuesday’s School Board meeting as contentious negotiations continued. District Financial Manager Tom Melone presented an updated budget that was more favorable than his last projected budget. His revised budget still predicts a $333,000 shortfall if taxes are raised to the limit allowed by the state. He said that without a tax increase, an additional $535,000 would be added to the shortfall. Board Treasurer Frank Casarella said the board still hoped to adopt a budget that does not call for a tax increase. The budget news brought a response from teachers union President Melissa Dolman. “At what point do you plan for a teacher contract?” she asked the board. “When are you gonna bend?” Board member Gil Dominick responded. Dolman replied the union had proposed quite a bend at the last negotiating session. The next negotiations be-

tween the board and the teachers union are set for May 1. In another matter, the agenda called for accepting bids for football equipment, but Mary Louise Degnan, who serves as bid chairman for the board, didn’t ask for a motion to approve the bids. Degnan said she knew nothing about the bids and had not been involved in any step in the opening and accepting of them. Casarella made the motion to accept the bids. The motion passed but Degnan, Carl Yorina, Elizabeth Gober-Mangan and Estelle Campenni voted against accepting the bids. In other matters: · Superintendent Ray Bernardi said the Secondary Center had won a silver medal in academic achievement from the U.S. News and World Report list of best high schools. · A resident said a blog article had published leaks from board contract negotiations with Bernardi. · The board approved head fall coach positions.

they were not authorized to discuss the case with reporters. Tamerlan, whom authorities have described as the driving force behind the plot, was killed in a shootout with police. Dzhokhar is recovering in a hospital from injuries sustained during a getaway attempt. Authorities had previously said Dzhokhar exchanged gunfire with them for more than an hour Friday night before they captured him inside a boat covered by a tarp in a suburban Boston neighborhood backyard. But two U.S. officials said Wednesday that he was unarmed when captured, raising questions about the gunfire and how he was injured. More than 4,000 mourners at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology paid tribute to a campus police officer who authorities say was gunned down by the bombing suspects. Among the speakers in Cambridge, just outside Boston, was Vice President Joe Biden, who condemned the bombing suspects as “two twisted, perverted, cowardly, knockoff jihadis.” Investigators have said the

brothers appeared to have been radicalized through jihadist materials on the Internet and have found no evidence tying them to a terrorist group. Dzhokhar told the FBI that they were angry about the U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and the killing of Muslims there, officials said. How much of those conversations will end up in court is unclear. The FBI normally tells suspects they have the right to remain silent before questioning them so all their statements can be used against them. Under pressure from Congress, however, the Department of Justice has said investigators might wait until they have gathered intelligence about other threats before reading those rights in terrorism cases. The American Civil Liberties Union has expressed concern about that. Regardless, investigators have found pieces of remote-control equipment among the debris and were analyzing them, officials said. One official described the detonator as “close-controlled,” meaning it had to be triggered within several blocks of the bombs. They also recovered a 9 mm handgun believed to have been used by Tamerlan from the site of a Thursday night gunbattle

that injured a Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority officer, two U.S. officials said. The officials told the AP that no gun was found in the boat. Boston police Commissioner Ed Davis said earlier that shots were fired from inside the boat. Asked whether the suspect had a gun in the boat, Davis said, “I’m not going to talk about that.” Kurt Schwartz, director of the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, did respond to the report. “Within half a mile of where this person was captured, a police officer was shot. And I know who shot him,” Schwartz said. “And there were three bombs that went off, and I know where those bombs came from. … To me, it does not change anything. This guy was captured alive and will survive. True or not true, it doesn’t change anything for me.” Dzhokhar’s public defender had no comment on the matter Wednesday. His father has called him a “true angel,” and an aunt has insisted he’s not guilty. The suspects’ parents, Anzor Tsarnaev and Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, plan to fly to the U.S. from Russia on Thursday, the father was quoted as telling the Russian state news agency RIA Novosti.

MaineToday Media, publisher of the Portland Press Herald, is accusing former Times Leader publisher Richard Connor of misusing more than $500,000 in company money while he also headed MTM, the Press Herald reported Wednesday. Connor, who ran The Times Leader since his Wilkes-Barre Publishing Co. bought the paper in 2006 and also ran MTM since June 2009 until he left both companies in 2011, gave himself unauthorized salary increases, according to a memo released to MTM employees on Wednesday by the company’s current publisher, Lisa DeSisto, the Press Herald reported. Desisto wrote that the company’s insurer has reimbursed MTM $537,988.68, minus a $50,000 deductible. Connor told the Press Herald he is being wrongly accused and that he tried to clear up financial questions with MTM before his departure, but that the company Connor wouldn’t cooperate. Connor said most of the expenses that MTM claims were misused were legitimate and he was ready to sort things out with the insurer. “They’re wrong, and they’re lying,” he said of the details disclosed in the memo. “It’s going to get resolved, and get resolved in my favor,” Connor told the newspaper. Wilkes-Barre Publishing filed a federal lawsuit against Connor in May 2012, alleging he has failed to repay $250,000 in loans the company made to him. Connor disputes those claims, alleging the company failed to give him credit for pay cuts and bonuses he was owed but did not accept. A trial is pending.

Hawkeye contractor cuts hours
Wilkes-Barre Area revenue loss leads to cuts for company that watches cameras.

average of 12.6 a day, starting May 1. It has been monitoring the cameras around the clock at a command center in Wilkes-Barre Police Department headquarters. The decision by the board of the Wilkes-Barre Area School District on April 8 to reject a three-year, $270,000 contract with Hawkeye led to the reduction in hours. Greg Barrouk, a city employee and member of the Hawkeye board, thanked Legion for its help. “It’s been a rough couple months for us since hearing the school board is relinquishing their funding to (Hawkeye),” he said. Hawkeye has a contract with the Wilkes-Barre Parking Authority and was paid $15,428 for February and March.




WILKES-BARRE — Facing a loss of revenue, Hawkeye Security Solutions accepted a cut in hours from the contractor monitoring the city’s camera surveillance system. After a closed-door session near the end of its monthly meeting Wednesday afternoon at City Hall, the board of the non-profit organization overseeing the camera system approved the amendment proposed by Legion Security Services Inc. Legion agreed to cut its hours by nearly half to 88 hours a week, or an

The new arrangement with Legion keeps Hawkeye within budget until the end of the year, Barrouk said. The Legion reduction is the latest development for Hawkeye and the $2 million system that went on line in 2010. The system’s usefulness was questioned after 5-year-old Kevin Miller of Dallas was struck and fatally injured by a hit-and-run driver on West North Street in December. There were Hawkeye cameras in the area, but police released photos of the suspected hit-and-run car taken by security cameras at King’s College and a private business. Frank Majikes, Hawkeye board chairman, defended the system against the criticism and said the public needs to know the system is working. City police last week charged Thom-

as Letteer Jr., 23, of Plains Township, in the boy’s death. “Certainly this board is proud of the importance and the role that the camera system played in the arrest regarding that case,” Majikes said. The reduction applies only to Legion and the system will be monitored around the clock, Barrouk explained. Two police officers assigned to light duty work rather than patrol will work in the command center for consecutive eight-hour shifts. A Legion employee will round out the schedule and be paid $15 an hour. When no officers are available, Legion employees will work the shifts. The pay rate goes up to $22.50 an hour if Legion is required to fill a shift with less than three days notice, according to the amended contract.

Agents from the Attorney General’s Office arrested James Romano, 42, police chief of Scott Township, Lackawanna County, accusing him of intimidating a witness and instructing a victim or witness to withhold information from law enforcement, Attorney General Kathleen Kane has announced. In March, Romano, who is also a part-time officer in Dickson City, was investigating sexual misconduct charges he filed against a Lackawanna County high school teacher. Romano Investigators say Romano began a romantic relationship with a woman he was interviewing as part of that investigation, revealed confidential investigative information to her and told her she was “his favorite victim.” Romano is charged with two counts of intimidation of a witness or victim, and one count of obstructing administration of law or other governmental function. He was arraigned before Scranton District Judge Joanne Corbett and held on $150,000 bail.

Parade planning ahead

WILKES-BARRE TWP. — Amid the roar of motorcycles whizzing past her at breakneck speeds, walking on a high wire 22 feet above the floor and the 12-inch knives thrown at her, Maria Dominguez finds something magical. The mother of three boys thrives on the thrill of performing, a trait she acquired from her father, Gaston, who walked the high wire and painted his face as a circus clown. She spent three months with him in Mexico in 1997, traveling from her native Chile, and hasn’t turned back. She’s part of the Lopez Troupe in the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Gold Edition Fully Charged show

at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza this week. It’s a smaller version of the threering show, featuring only one ring. There are elephants and horses, camels and dogs, and performers who dance and sing to lasers and LEDs. The audience can sit ringside, close enough to see and hear the sights and sounds. Dominguez knows all about close. She is one of three motorcyclists circling inside The Globe of Steel. The bikes reach speeds up to 65 mph while spinning around the 12-foot diameter cage. At one point, the lights shut off in the arena and the LEDs on the motorcycles criss-cross in a dizzying pattern. “It’s very dangerous, but at the same time it’s really cool,” Dominguez said. “There’s no room for mistakes.” It took two years of practice before she could master the Globe and join her husband, Jonathan, and his broth-

er Johan. She exits for a bit during the show to make room for Johan’s wife, Erika, to step inside, allowing the remaining riders to dodge her. As workers raised the rigging with speakers, lights and curtains for the show, the menacing, black steel ball was parked off to the side for assembly. Dominguez, a petite 30-year-old, rejoins her husband on the high wire, something she learned from her father starting on a wire only 2 feet off the ground. The husband and wife work without either a net or safety lines. Dominguez said he is the only performer in the world who does a handstand atop a bicycle on the wire. The troupe squeezes in a knifethrowing act for the performance, too. Dominguez said she’s not afraid and hasn’t been injured by the razor-sharp

KINGSTON — Michael Hughes, who served a state sentence for marijuana trafficking, again is facing charges he was in possession of a large amount of the drug. Hughes, 27, whose addresses were listed as Knox Street, Hanover Township, and Warner Street, Plains Township, was arrested after police allegedly found a large Hughes amount of marijuana and a loaded handgun with an altered serial number inside his vehicle during a traffic stop Tuesday night on Pierce Street. An arrest warrant was issued for Hughes on Monday after a state police Vice and Narcotics Unit allegedly discovered a marijuana packaging operation inside a Knox Street residence that authorities say he shared with Marisa Ginanni, 26, in August. Hughes was arraigned Wednesday on charges of possession and possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and firearm offenses. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $70,000 bail. Ginanni was arraigned Wednesday afternoon on two counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, and one count each of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was released on $5,000 unsecured bail. Hughes was paroled from state prison in June 2008 after serving a two-year sentence for heading a marijuana trafficking ring with his mother, Kathryn Hughes, 56, and fire-bombing a house on Poplar Street, Kingston, in December 2006, according to court records.

Four area high schools make the grade in national magazine
U.S. News & World Report awards Wyoming Area, Hanover Area, Pittston Area and Wyo. Valley West.
By JERRY LYNOTT [email protected]

Four Luzerne County high schools received high rankings from the latest U.S. News & Report. The Wyoming Area Secondary Center earned a silver medal award in the magazine’s 2013 ranking of top performing schools released Tuesday. Hanover Area Junior Senior High School, Pittston Area High School and

Wyoming Valley West Senior High School earned bronze medals. The magazine compiles its list after analyzing 21,035 public schools in 49 states and the District of Columbia based on state, federal and independent data.

WILKES-BARRE — A city man who prosecutors say slashed a teen boy in the head with a machete was found not guilty Wednesday of the most serious charge. Junior Alberto Diaz Reyes, 26, of South Grant Street, was found not guilty of a charge of aggravated assault, but was convicted of additional charges of simple assault and disorderly conduct. Prosecutors withdrew a summary charge of harassment. A jury, which was selected Monday, deliberated for about two hours Wednesday before reaching a verdict. Judge Lesa Gelb sentenced Diaz Reyes to one to two months in prison and one year probation. Diaz Reyes had already served the maximum and was released from prison Wednesday pending any other detainers. Assistant District Attorney William Finnegan prosecuted the case. Diaz Reyes was represented by attorney William Watt. Police allege Diaz-Reyes swung a machete in June 2011 that slashed a 16-year-old boy in the forehead during an argument in the area of East Northampton and South Grant streets. The boy was taken to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township, where he was treated for lacerations to his forehead, injuries to his left eye and a fractured skull, police said. WEST PITTSTON — A man accused of raping a girl and sexually assaulting another girl will face charges in Luzerne County Court. John A. Cooke, 36, of West Pittston, appeared Wednesday for a preliminary hearing before District Judge Joseph Carmody who sent charges of rape of a child, aggravated indecent assault, dissemination of sexual material to a minor and indecent assault to county court. West Pittston police allege Cooke sexually assaulted the two girls from January 2009 to June 2012, and showed one of the girls movies of pornography from January 2009 to June 2012, according to the criminal complaints. WEST PITTSTON — A Pittston woman recently waived her right to a preliminary hearing on charges she stole money while employed at Uni-Mart in Exeter. Jessica Elizabeth Yanetti, 28, of William Street, waived charges of theft and receiving stolen property to Luzerne County Court. Exeter police allege Yanetti stole $5,086 over two months while employed as a clerk at Unimart on Wyoming Avenue. She was fired on Sept. 29, according to the criminal complaint. SUGARLOAF — A Butler Township man recently waived his right to a preliminary hearing on charges he was under the influence of alcohol and marijuana when he crashed his vehicle. Giovanni Mazzola, 23, of Rock Shore Drive, Drums, waived charges of aggravated assault by vehicle while driving under the influence, driving under the influence, careless driving and speeding to Luzerne County Court. Police withdrew a second count of aggravated assault by vehicle, two counts of driving under the influence, and reckless driving against Mazzola. Butler Township police allege Mazzola had a blood alcohol level of .178 percent and had marijuana in his system when he crashed his 2011 Toyota Corolla, which rolled several times on North Hunter Highway on

Poll: Few plan for their elder years Was feud
Age-denying Americans must consider long-term care costs, pollsters say.
The Associated Press


An officer plays ‘Taps’ at a memorial ceremony Wednesday at the site of the fire and explosion in West, Texas. The fertilizer plant that exploded in Central Texas last week, killing at least 14 people, could have stored up to 270 tons of ammonium nitrate. But investigators say they don’t know how much of the explosive chemical was kept at the company because of gaps in government regulations. Investigators are trying to determine the cause of the blast.

Texas plant blast questions remain

WASHINGTON — We’re in denial: Americans underestimate their chances of needing long-term care as they get older — and are taking few steps to get ready. A new poll examined how people 40 and over are preparing for this difficult and often pricey reality of aging and found two-thirds say they’ve done little to no planning. In fact, 3 in 10 would rather not think about getting older at all. Only a quarter predict it’s very likely that they’ll personally need help getting around or caring for them-

selves during their senior years, according to the poll by the AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. That’s a surprise considering the poll found more than half of the 40-plus crowd already have been caregivers for an impaired relative or friend — seeing from the other side the kind of assistance they, too, are likely to need later on. “I didn’t think I was old. I still don’t think I’m old,” explained retired schoolteacher Malinda Bowman, 60, of Laura, Ohio. Bowman has been a caregiver twice, first for her grandmother. Then after her father died in 2006, Bowman moved in with her mother, caring for her until her death in January. Yet Bowman has made few plans for herself.

“I guess I was focused on caring for my grandmother and mom and dad, so I didn’t really think about myself,” she said. “Everything we had was devoted to taking care of them.” The poll found most people expect family to step up if they need long-term care — even though 6 in 10 haven’t talked with loved ones about the possibility and how they’d like it to work. Bowman said she’s healthy now but expects to need help someday from her two grown sons. Last month, prompted by a brother’s fall and blood clot, she began the conversation by telling her youngest son about her living will and life insurance policy. “I need to plan eventually,” she acknowledged.

Government figures show nearly 7 in 10 Americans will need long-term care at some point after they reach age 65, whether it’s from a relative, a home health aide, assisted living or a nursing home.

Despite cracks in building, garment workers remained on job


Gay marriage bill passed
hode Island senators put the state on the path Wednesday to becoming the 10th state to allow same-sex couples to marry. The gay marriage legislation easily passed the Rhode Island House in January, and the Senate vote was seen as the true test. The bill passed 26-12, and now returns to the House for a largely procedural vote, likely next week, before going to Gov. Lincoln Chafee, who supports the legislation. “This is a historic piece of legislation, one that literally has been in the works for more than 20 years,” said Sen. Donna Nesselbush, D-Pawtucket, the bill’s main sponsor in the Senate.

Immigration reform urged
Former Fla. Gov. Jeb Bush urged the nation to change its immigration and education systems to ensure a robust American economy in remarks Wednesday before the World Affairs Council in Dallas. A suburb away, former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton was delivering her first paid speech since leaving the helm of the State Department earlier this year. The dueling appearances came on the eve of the opening of George W. Bush’s presidential library, stoking speculation about each of their own political futures. Both are considered strong White House contenders should each seek the presidency in 2016.


Rescue workers use cloths to bring down a survivor after an eight-story building housing several garment factories collapsed Wednesday in Savar, near Dhaka, Bangladesh.

87 die in factory collapse

Palestinians appeal to pope
Palestinians in this Christian village are hoping the new pope can succeed where others have failed — pressing Israel to drop plans to build a stretch of its West Bank separation barrier through their picturesque valley. Since Vatican properties are affected, residents have appealed to the Roman Catholic Church to use more of its significant influence in the Holy Land to reroute the barrier, even as local Catholic leaders hold a special protest Mass in threatened orchards each week. The Vatican has called on Israel not to seize the lands, but local Palestinian Catholics want the new pontiff to lean more heavily on Israel. Israel has been building the barrier since 2002 in response to a wave of suicide bombings early last decade that killed hundreds of people. Israel says the barrier is needed to keep out Palestinian attackers.

SAVAR, Bangladesh — Rescuers tried to free dozens of people believed trapped in the concrete rubble after an eight-story building that housed garment factories collapsed, killing at least 87. Workers had complained about cracks in the structure before it came tumbling down, but were assured it was safe. Searchers cut holes in the jumbled mess of concrete with drills or their bare hands, passing water and flashlights to those pinned inside the building near Bangladesh’s capital of Dhaka. “I gave them whistles, water, torchlights. I heard them cry. We can’t leave them behind this way,” said fire official Abul Khayer. Rescue operations illuminated by floodlights continued through the night.

The disaster came less than five months after a factory fire killed 112 people and underscored the unsafe conditions in Bangladesh’s massive garment industry. Workers said they had hesitated to go to into the building on Wednesday morning because it had developed such large cracks a day earlier that it even drew the attention of local news channels. Abdur Rahim, who worked on the fifth floor, said a factory manager gave assurances that there was no problem, so employees went inside. “After about an hour or so, the building collapsed suddenly,” Rahim said. He next remembered regaining consciousness outside. On a visit to the site, Home Minister Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir told reporters the building had violated construction codes and “the culprits would be

punished.” Among the textile businesses in the building were Phantom Apparels Ltd., New Wave Style Ltd., New Wave Bottoms Ltd. and New Wave Brothers Ltd., which make clothing for major brands including The Children’s Place, Dress Barn and The Cato Corp. Jane Singer, a spokeswoman for The Children’s Place, said that “while one of the garment factories located in the building complex has produced apparel for The Children’s Place, none of our product was in production at the time of this accident.” “Our deepest sympathies go out to the victims of this terrible tragedy and their families,” Singer said in a statement. Dress Barn said that to its knowledge, it had “not purchased any clothing from that facility since 2010.”

OXFORD, Miss. — The investigation into poisoned letters mailed to President Barack Obama and others has shifted from an Elvis impersonator to his longtime foe, and authorities must now figure out if an online feud between the two men might have escalated into something more sinister. Paul Kevin Curtis, 45, was released from a north Mississippi jail on Tuesday and charges against him were dropped, Curtis nearly a week after authorities charged him with sending ricin-laced letters to the president, Republican U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker of Dutschke Mississippi and an 80-year-old Lee County, Miss., Justice Court judge, Sadie Holland. Before Curtis left jail, authorities had already descended on the home of 41-year-old Everett Dutschke in Tupelo, a northeast Mississippi town best known as the birthplace of the King himself. On Wednesday, they searched the site of a martial arts studio once operated by Dutschke, who hasn’t been arrested or charged. Curtis, who performs as Elvis and other celebrities, describes a bizarre, yearslong feud with the former martial arts instructor, but Dutschke insists he had nothing to do with the letters. The letters contained language identical to that found on Curtis’ Facebook page and other websites, making him an early suspect. Federal authorities have not said what led them to drop the charges against Curtis, and his lawyers say they’re not sure what new evidence the FBI has found. On Wednesday, dozens of investigators were searching at a small retail space where neighboring business owners said Dutschke used to operate a martial arts studio. Officers at the scene wouldn’t comment on what they were doing. Dutschke’s attorney, Lori Nail Basham, said Dutschke is “cooperating fully” with investigators. “The authorities state to me that no warrant has been issued for his arrest,” she said Wednesday afternoon. Dutschke was seen outside the studio watching the search on Wednesday. Both men say they have met Wicker, and they each have a connection to Holland, who received one of the ricin letters.

Marathon quiz show ahead
NBC says it’s planning a 12-daylong, around-the-clock competition show to air this fall. The network said Wednesday that the trivia-based game show, “The Million Second Quiz,” will air live in prime time from a specially built studio in the heart of Manhattan. This hourglassshaped complex will also serve as the living quarters of the four finalists. When the 12 days — or 1 million seconds — draw to a close, the winner could claim a cash prize of as much as $10 million. Viewers will be able to play along in real time and sync to the prime-time broadcast. NBC’s president of alternative and late night programming calls the show “a game, a social experiment and a live interactive event.”


Floodwaters drop but tension still high in the Midwest
Residents wary of pressure on levees until water drops below flood stage.
The Associated Press

PEORIA HEIGHTS, Ill. — Slowly retreating floodwaters gave Midwesterners some hope Wednesday that the worst was over, but many worried that the earthen and daysold sandbag levees along the Illinois and Mississippi rivers could still fail. Fast-moving currents were testing makeshift protections around Dutchtown, Mo., where the Mississippi was expected to rise well above flood stage later this week and potentially send water into

the scattered homes and businesses that comprise the tiny, unprotected river town. In downtown Peoria, Ill., tens of thousands of white and yellow sandbags stacked 3 feet high lined blocks of the scenic riverfront, holding back Illinois River waters that already reached a 70-year high and surrounded the visitors’ center and restaurants in the 114-year-old former train depot. Across the street, smaller sandbag walls blocked riverside pedestrian access to the headquarters of heavy equipment maker Caterpillar and the city’s arts and culture museum. Despite the receding water, city leaders were reluctant to

issue an all-clear. “I’m very pleased so far, but we’re not out of the woods,”

Peoria City Manager Patrick Urich said. “The water’s going to stay up for a while.”

Higher water levels over extended periods of time put significant pressure on levees regardless of how well they’re built. Sandbag walls are particularly vulnerable because of their porous nature, and concerns persisted along the Mississippi River in southeast Missouri, where smaller levees had been overtopped or breached. Elsewhere, there were no reports of other significant Midwestern population centers in peril, but high water bedeviled business and home owners who are assessing the damage across multiple states. About a dozen northern Indiana homes were condemned and as many as 200 were damaged by flooding in Kokomo.

Stephen Robert Herr
April 15, 2013


tephen Robert Herr, 58, of Pine Grove Mills, Pa., died at home after a brief but valiant battle with cancer, surrounded by his family and wife, Kathleen Wajda Herr, as he peacefully passed on. Kathy is the daughter of Sophie and the late Casimer “Mike” Wajda, Wilkes-Barre. Steve was a 1972 graduate of Ephrata Area High School, and attained an associate of arts in communications and a bachelor of science in business management from Penn State University. In his teen years, he played organ and keyboard with bands including Jericho and the original Tom Slick and the Thunderbolt Grease Slappers, playing throughout eastern Pa. and N.J. He had an extensive knowledge of music, lyrics and bands, and shared this with others enthusiastically. Steve was a partner in Herr Brothers Antiques, employed by Dank’s, State College, and by HRB Singer, State College, as a buyer and contract administrator. In 1985, he and his wife, Kathy, embarked on a new venture: restoring the Odd Fellows Lodge and transforming it into The Old Oak Tavern in Pine Grove Mills. After nine years, Steve and Kathy were blessed with a daughter, Victoria Stephanie, Baltimore, and two years later, a son, Alexander William, at home. Steve fell in love with his best friend and wife when she was 18 and he 19, and they have been together ever since. In their 28 years, they did everything together and he will remain in her heart forever. Steve enjoyed playing Hammond organs and acquiring antiques and old radios. Most recently, he had the privilege of working with his son, Alex, on his Eagle Scout project for the Boy Scouts. Renovating old homes and prop-

erties and taking on the surprises that come with these challenges were some of Steve and Kathy’s passions. They enjoyed boating and fishing at Raystown Lake and relaxing at the cabin in Vosburg and the cottage in Mount Gretna. Steve was technically gifted and was able to take apart, repair and reassemble almost anything. As co-proprietor of the Old Oak Tavern, he was very social and enjoyed engaging in conversations with friends and patrons. Steve and Kathy gathered annually with college friends for a “Big Chill” weekend, always an event to remember. He was known for his great sense of humor and will be greatly missed by many. He was preceded in death by his father, Harold “Doc” Herr; and brother, William H. Herr. In addition to his wife and children, Steve leaves behind his mother, F. Joan Clelan, and her companion, Robert M. Lauman, Cornwall, Pa.; siblings, Jeffrey B. Herr and his companion, Joella Wilson, Lebanon, Kathleen J. Herr, Lancaster, and Heidi H., wife of Thomas A. Kecskemethy, Wallingford, Pa; five stepbrothers; two stepsisters; four nieces; and six nephews. Steve was loved very dearly by both his and Kathy’s families. Steve was a caring and giving person and made the choice to donate his body for medical research to help others. A gathering to celebrate Steve’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be directed to the Herr College Fund, c/o First National Bank, 2591 Park Center Blvd., State College, PA 16801.

Scout compromise is unsatisfying

o-called gay marriage is a contradiction in terms. Webster’s Dictionary defines “gay” as homosexual, and as such “gays” cannot be married under national law. Marriage is between one man and one woman. How do I know this? The Bible tells us that God created man and woman and told them to increase and multiply, Genesis I: 27, 28; and in Scripture; “What God has joined together let no man put asunder…” Is not the practice between “gays” really sodomy, or am I missing something? Webster’s Dictionary defines sodomy in part as “any sexual intercourse held to be abnormal.” And if so, what did God, our creator, say about this? In the Bible we read that God destroyed two cities, Sodom, hence the word Sodomy, and Gomorrah, because of their sinful behavior. In Genesis, 19:15-25, we are told that Lot and his wife and family were told to flee Sodom before God destroyed both cities by fire, the inhabitants and the plants of the soil. Let me emphasize that I am not judging individuals who may be “gay,” God will judge each one of us individually. We do, however, need to get our train in this country back on the track lest we stray any farther from the behavior that our Creator demands of us. God is a patient and forgiving God, but we should learn from Scripture that he is not one to torment too far. We have been given much in this country, and we should abide by the natural laws, God’s law. We must stop killing unborn children and killing “suspected militants” with missiles from drones, killing innocent people in the way. No wonder others hate us.

panicked in the face of the media’s rush to judgment. They commissioned and accepted a flawed Freeh Report without examination. They surrendered to NCAA sanctions without a challenge and they have spent millions of our dollars seemingly to protect and promote themselves instead of defending our university. We owe it to future generations to pay forward the values and benefits we have enjoyed as proud Penn Staters. There is no room in effective governance for incompetence, arrogance or excuses. It is time to step up and show the world that Penn State’s best years are still to come. The election of Bill Association members received ballots via email on April 10.

leave them on the edge of poverty. A good example is Walmart. The largest employer in the United States, has the most workers on public assistance. Several years ago the company went from regular shifts to flexible shifts, downgrading workers’ statuses so they would not qualify for health benefits. As we are aware, politicians are trying to cut out Medicare. Many other big corporations are doing the same. A Walmart study cost taxpayers 1 billion a year. One question asked: Is the minimum wage too low? This question should be asked to the working poor. $7.25 an hour has been frozen since 2009. The Unite States sends billions and billions of dollars to foreign countries and still they ask for more. It’s never enough. The working people are on the edge of poverty, many losing their homes they cannot afford to keep. Is this the “American Dream?” I don’t think so. So continues the greed factor for big corporations.

Voters must vote smarter Former educator lauds to have good government Coughlin teacher’s efforts D I
o you want better government? Going to Harrisburg and Washington to “throw the bums out” won’t work. The “bums” were elected by the voters in general elections. So, what’s the solution? The answer is to encourage, support and elect leaders at all levels of government who believe in public service and in good government to run for office. Michael Bloomberg, an independent; John Huntsman, a Republican; and Bill Richardson, a Democrat are a few examples. To make government better means that taxpayers must be willing to pay for public funding of short election campaigns. Candidates would have access to free media advertising. This would eliminate the influence of corporations and the wealthy. Voting to elect candidates who are antigovernment and who oppose paying taxes only makes government worse. In short, if we want better government, then we must be smarter voters who know that good government isn’t free or cheap, but that is costs less in the long run than government that is bought and paid for by well-financed special interest groups and their lobbyists.

am writing to inform your readers of the upcoming election for trustees at Penn State University. My good friend and fraternity brother, William F. Oldsey, Class of 1976, has recently announced his candidacy. Bill has spent his entire professional career in the educational publishing industry. He has devoted many years to supporting education at Penn State which led to his being named an Alumni Fellow in 2009. Bill also comes from a family with roots in the Wilkes-Barre area, and he is committed to doing everything possible to restore the rightful place of honor for the university and that of the late Coach Joe Paterno. The past year has been the most difficult in our history. Unfortunately, many of those entrusted with leadership at Penn State have failed to lead. They

read with interest the comments from James Brown of Plains Township headlined “Area’s school districts are lagging in good results.” He makes many valid points. Absolutely those results are poor-and if teachers aren’t teaching or students aren’t learning, changes must be made or we will never see any improvement in those scores. However, despite only hearing in the press of failings in our public schools, there is a brighter, more positive reality. There are many outstanding teachers, at every level, throughout this valley who are doing amazing things every day. We simply never hear about them. One such example of a brilliant point of light is Gerald Gillis, a mathematics teacher at James M. Coughlin High School. For the past two years, every student in his Advanced Placement Calculus class has scored a perfect “5” in the A.P. exam. As a retired A.P. teacher, I can assure you that these results are absolutely remarkable and unique. To be sure, these results are a testimonial to both the high caliber of student and to the entire mathematics faculty at Coughlin for preparing those students for the rigor of Gillis’s class. In light of all of the negative press that they have been bombarded with, it would be wise for the Wilkes-Barre Area School Board to recognize, publicize, and honor outstanding achievements that are happening in their classrooms-they should begin by honoring Gillis.

hopes the Hazleton community will not view Lehigh Valley as an interloper. “We’re ready to do that with you, not to you,” Swinfard said. At separate meetings in April, the boards of both organizations signed a formal agreement to allow a full asset merger of the Greater Hazleton Health Alliance into Lehigh Valley Health Network. Brian Downs, a spokesman for the network , said that because the deal is for a full asset merger, there is no price tag attached because there is no sale being made. Downs said the merger transaction must be reviewed and approved by the Federal Trade Commission, the state Attorney General’s Office and the state Department of Health. Once all that is done, the merger date will be determined and so will additional details. When the merger is complete, the 150-bed Hazleton General Hospital and the Hazleton Health and Wellness Center will remain separate entities under Lehigh Valley Health Network, officials said. Trippi was always a little apprehensive when he was a child, he said, but he always felt confident about his athletic ability. And he proved it through his career: • Trippi was a two-time AllAmerican at Georgia. • He was named Most Valuable Player in Georgia’s 9-0 victory over UCLA in the 1943 Rose Bowl, outshining teammate and Heisman Trophy winner Frank Sinwich. Georgia finished the season at 11-1 and the consensus national champion. • Trippi won the Maxwell Award in 1946 and finished runner-up to Army’s Glenn Davis in the Heisman Trophy voting. • Drafted by the NFL’s Chicago Cardinals as the top over-

The board of directors will remain in place, but networkappointed members will have a majority of the seats. The Alliance Medical Group will become a separate division of the Lehigh Valley Physician Group. Edwards said there are no plans for reductions in staff, though the opposite is possible. “We would anticipate growth,” Edwards said. “Growth means more jobs.” Thomas Kennedy, chairman of the Greater Hazleton Health Alliance Board of Directors, made the formal announcement and said the plans have been in the works for more than a year. He called the decision “absolutely the right thing to do.” William Hecht, the chairman of the Lehigh Valley Health Network Board of Directors, also praised the merger and called it “a giant first step in enhancing the health and well being in both communities.” Donna Palermo, the president of the Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce, called the proposed merger “a great all pick in 1945, Trippi served in the military in World War II and returned to Georgia to complete his degree, playing for the Bulldogs in 1945 and 1946. • Trippi played in the NFL for nine years; he later coached in Chicago for five years and five years at Georgia. • He played baseball for the Southern Association’s Atlanta Crackers before joining the NFL; he hit .334 in 106 games. • Trippi played in the 1947 NFL Championship Game when the Cardinals defeated the Philadelphia Eagles, 28-21. Trippi wore basketball shoes because the field was icy; he ran for 206 yards and scored two touchdowns — a 44-yard run and a 75-yard punt return.

1996 with the consolidation of Hazleton’s two hospitals, Hazleton General and Hazleton-St. Joseph. The Lehigh Valley Health Network employs 12,000 and includes two full-service hospitals: Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest in Salisbury Township — which includes an additional clinical campus, Lehigh Valley Hospital-17th Street in Allentown — and Lehigh Valley Hospital-Muhlenberg in Bethlehem. Lehigh Valley acquired the Muhlenberg hospital 15 years ago. Pending regulatory approval, officials from the two systems said they plan to do a needs assessment to determine how the merged organization can meet the health care needs of the expanded Lehigh Valley Health Network community. Until approval is given, both systems will continue operating as they have. The pending sale of the former St. Joseph’s Hospital also will move forward, and Edwards said he believes that deal will close before the merger approval is granted. said. “Every Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas they all gather here. I love to play with the grandkids. We have a great time.” Trippi signed a four-year deal with the Cardinals for $100,000 for four years. According to The USA Today article, Trippi decided to attend Georgia on the recommendation of Harold Ketran, a former Georgia player who had opened a Coca-Cola bottling plant in Wilkes-Barre. Ketran gave Trippi a job driving soda trucks in the summer. Trippi lives in Athens, where he became successful as a real estate developer. He attends as many Georgia Bulldog home games as possible. ers who don’t want to wear ear plugs, he said. The difficulty obtaining sheriff approval is prompting more people to resort to creating special trusts to assume ownership of Class III weapons, Scoda said. The federal government still conducts background checks of the primary trustee, but approval of the local chief law enforcement officer is not required for these transfers, he said. Braddock is considering a trust. Scoda said the background check is “more thorough” for individual transfers than trusts. Attorney David Goldman, managing partner of Apple Law Firm PLLC, said his Floridabased firm “created the concept of gun trusts” about six years ago. The trusts have become increasingly popular across the country, and Goldman doesn’t agree with news articles describing them as a “loophole.” “The loophole is that sheriffs are given the arbitrary ability to make decisions without evaluating somebody. A background check is still conducted, but the local sheriff doesn’t get to insert his personal beliefs into Second Amendment rights,” Goldman said.

Franklin Tenn., has acquired eight hospitals in the region: Wilkes-Barre General, Tyler Hospital in Tunkhannock, Special Care Hospital in Nanticoke, First Hospital in Kingston and the former Mercy and Moses Taylor hospitals in Scranton, Mid-Valley Hospital in Peckville and Berwick Hospital. Edwards said that the successful relationship between the two systems led to discussions about how to continually strengthen the relationship.


Hazleton General Hospital staff await Wednesday’s announcement that the Greater Hazleton Health Alliance and the Lehigh Valley Health Network are merging.

Benefits explained

“It’s really a natural progression,” Edwards said. “As we discussed how to move forward, it really made sense.” Dr. Ronald Swinfard, president and CEO of the Lehigh Valley Health Network, said the partnership benefits both systems and he sees the ability to expand offerings available to Hazleton patients. He said he

said. “I used to greet him at the door when he came home from work. He was always tired, and I could see the pain in his eyes.” Feeding five kids was difficult, and after seeing the struggles of his parents, Trippi said, he came up with a game plan.

Door to future

“I knew if I could excel in baseball or football or both, I could get a scholarship, go to college and find a career to benefit me in the future,” Trippi said. “Once I got to Georgia, doors opened up for me.”

• Trippi played halfback for four seasons before switching to quarterback for two seasons, then back to offensive halfback for one season; he switched to defense in 1954 and 1955. He was also the Cardinals’ punter and he excelled on special teams. • He is the only player in the Pro Football Hall of Fame with at least 1,000 yards of receiving, passing and rushing. “It makes me feel good,” Trippi said, reflecting on his athletic career. “I’m grateful for all the opportunities I had in football and baseball.” He grew up at 90 E. Railroad St. After graduating from Pittston, he attended LaSalle Military Academy in Long Isthese transfers likely have no idea what’s going on in our county, so they’re asking the chief law enforcement officer to determine if that person has a good reputation,” Martin said. He said he wants to be involved in actively monitoring and tracking who has Class III items. “I’d like to know if there are 20 people in my county who have suppressors (silencers),” Martin said. “To me, it’s public safety.” The federal form requires chief law enforcement officers to certify they have no information indicating the applicant will use the transferred item for an illegal purpose. Martin begins by reviewing the application and verifying applicants’ county residency. He said he may reject applications from county newcomers if he can’t gather enough information about them. He also completes background and criminal history checks, including a search for district judge-level summary offenses such as disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. Braddock said he turned to the Luzerne County sheriff for his transfer because his municipality does not have a local police force.

He was recruited by several major colleges. “Notre Dame came to my house wanting to recruit me,” he said. “But I had already committed to Georgia.” He watches the NFL draft on TV, he said, but not as intently as he has in the past. He’s not jealous of the multimillion-dollar contracts of today. “We get a good pension from the NFL,” he said. The memories of a storied football career remain fresh in his mind, but Trippi plays a different game these days against much smaller competitors. “I have 15 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren,” he

cause of her conviction. “She is a danger to the community. … She is a flight risk,” Crake said. “I’m concerned for the safety of the victims in this case.” County Judge David Lupas said that for those reasons he was granting Crake’s request. Schneider was handcuffed in the courtroom and later taken by the sheriff’s department to the county prison, where she will remain until she is sentenced on June 24. “I can’t tell you how happy I am,” Crake said of the verdict and for the closure it brings to everyone involved. “The responsible party is being held accountable. It’s relief.” Crake said arson cases are among the hardest to try, and she is thankful for the work of Cpl. Shawn Hilbert and Trooper James Surmick. “It was a team effort,” she said. Schneider testified Tuesday she did not start the fire, and although she had some problems with Buak and the owner of the property, Kenneth Temborski, she had moved on with her life.

“I have a sense of peace … and closure. Justice was served today. I don’t have to live in fear anymore.”

Schneider said she endured a “nightmare interrogation” by officers and was being accused of setting the blaze because of coincidences. She had gone to a Conyngham bar that night and just happened to be in the area. But she said nothing as she left the courthouse early Wednesday evening. Her attorneys left the courthouse soon after the verdict was read. Temborski, who had to rebuild the Lantern Lane building, but with only one floor and four tenants as opposed to two floors and eight tenants before the fire, said he also is glad the case is over after almost three years. “There are no winners here. Hopefully, we can get on with our lives,” Temborski said. “This isn’t a win — it’s justice.”

Szymanski said the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives does its own extensive background checks and ultimately decides if these transfers are approved, prompting him to question why county sheriffs are drawn into the process. “Why do we have to sign off? I feel very uncomfortable signing for an automatic firearm or silencer. God forbid something happens. Then people will turn around and say I signed it,” Szymanski said. “We don’t think sheriffs should be involved, period.” Monroe County Sheriff Todd Martin said he believes the signoff is required as an extra precaution to make the federal bureau aware of any local law enforcement concerns about applicants. Martin said he won’t critique the approach of counterparts because they have discretion over how they handle such requests, but he embraces the opportunity to evaluate and review applicants and considers it part of his job. “I feel we’re part of the process.

Association, said he has never received requests to sign transfers and hasn’t heard of any approved by other municipal chiefs. County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis said she never received a transfer request and does not know if her office would process them or forward them to the sheriff’s office, which already handles concealed weapon permits. Applicants must pay a $200 transfer fee, submit two sets of fingerprints and passport photos. Chris Scoda, owner of gun dealer Advanced Arms LLC in Pittston, said the two previous Luzerne County sheriffs approved Class III transfer requests after conducting background checks. “For the current acting sheriff not to want to sign is kind of odd. I don’t think personal beliefs belong in that position,” Scoda said. He said the federal review of transfer applications is a “very intensive process” involving the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He disputed the perception silencers are being purchased for crime. Silencers have become more popular for target shooting and hunting because they reduce weapon recoil and noise pollution for neighbors and shoot-

Johnson’s homer can’t save RailRiders Bench leaving Lions
Tape-measure shot isn’t enough to overcome bullpen breakdown
By PAUL SOKOLOSKI [email protected]






MOOSIC - For the longest time, Cody Johnson wondered how long it would take him to turn on the power. And when he unleashed it, the ball jumped from his bat with an awesome display of brute strength. Johnson’s first home run of the season cleared the grassy knoll, hit the back of the walkway and onehopped off the rocks in right field Wednesday for the longest home run See RIDERS, Page 6B

at revamped PNC Field. That blast - which traveled some 450 feet in the fourth inning - wasn’t quite enough to save the Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre RailRiders from falling 5-4 to Columbus in a morning matinee game. But it did make Johnson feel a lot better about himself after a slow start to the season. “It just felt good to get that

Kenseth With the first pick... hit with penalty
Illegal connecting rod lands team one of largest penalties in NASCAR history.
By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer



CHARLOTTE, N.C. — In one of the largest penalties in history, NASCAR stripped Matt Kenseth of everything but the trophy from his victory at Kansas after his engine failed a post-race inspection. NASCAR said Wednesday one of the eight connecting rods in the engine of the No. 20 Toyota did not meet Kenseth the minimum weight requirement. Although it was potentially a quality control issue by engine provider Toyota Racing Development — and one that gave no advantage to Kenseth in Sunday’s race — NASCAR levied a severe penalty against a Sprint Cup team for the second week in a row. Kenseth was stripped of 50 driver points in the standings — he earned only 48 points for the victory — and NASCAR also erased the three bonus points he earned for the win that would have been applied in seeding for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. In addition, the victory will not be credited toward his eligibility for a wild card berth in the Chase. So, although Kenseth has two wins on the year, the Kansas win does not count in any form toward his Chase eligibility. Kenseth also lost his pole award, which could hurt his eligibility for next year’s Sprint Unlimited exhibition race. NASCAR suspended crew chief Jason Ratcliff for six races, fined him $200,000 and placed him on probation until the end of the year. And in a rare move, car owner Joe Gibbs had his owner’s license suspended for the next six races and he won’t earn car owner points during that time. He also was docked 50 car owner points.

Central Michigan offensive linesman Eric Fisher blocks against Western Kentucky during the second half of the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl NCAA college football game at Ford Field in Detroit. Only twice since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 has an offensive tackle been drafted first overall. On Thursday night, the Kansas City Chiefs could make it three.


Spring practice exit interviews came and went. Steven Bench didn’t get the answer he was hoping for. As he did last April, Penn State coach Bill O’Brien sat down with players individually for some honest discussions following the Blue-White Game. Bench left his meeting pessimistic about his chances to start at quarterback this season and has made the decision to transfer at the end of the spring semester. Penn State confirmed the departure on Wednesday afternoon. “After meeting with Steven, he informed me he wants to play elsewhere,” O’Brien said in a release. “We want what is best for Steven. I want to thank him for his contributions to the program. We wish Steven the best in the future and will assist him any way we can.” The move leaves junior college transfer Tyler Ferguson and incoming freshman Christian Hackenberg as the top candidates to start under center when the Nittany Lions face Syracuse on Aug. 31. Ferguson was rated by some recruiting services as the No. 2-rated JUCO quarterback to sign over the winter. Hackenberg is considered by many to be the country’s top pure drop-back passer coming out of high school in this past recruiting class. Austin Whipple and D.J. Crook

PHILADELPHIA — Pinch hitter Brandon Inge hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the eighth inning and the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-3 Wednesday night. Roy Halladay pitched six innings of one-hit ball and Chase Utley and Ryan Howard hit upper-deck solo homers off Wandy Rodriguez, but Mike Adams (1-2) couldn’t protect an eighthinning lead. Pedro Alvarez hit a solo homer off Antonio Bastardo in the seventh and his RBI single in the fourth was the only hit off Halladay. Vin Mazzaro (1-0) retired the four batters he faced to earn the win. Mark Melancon worked the eighth and Jason Grilli finished for his ninth save in nine tries.

Cardinals 4, Nationals 2

WASHINGTON — Yadier Molina hit a two-run single off Stephen Strasburg during St. Louis’ three-run first inning, and the Cardinals beat the Nationals to complete a sweep and give Washington’s All-Star ace the only four-start losing streak of his young career. Jaime Garcia (2-1) allowed a run on Bryce Harper’s sixth-inning groundout, but otherwise added to the offensive struggles of the Nationals, who have lost six consecutive home games and nine of their last 12 overall to fall to 10-11.

Rockies 6, Braves 5, 12 innings

Mets 7, Dodgers 3, 10 inn.

NEW YORK -- Jordany Valdespin hit a grand slam in the 10th inning and the New York Mets rallied past the Los Angeles Dodgers to save early sensation Matt Harvey from his first loss of the season. David Wright tied it with a two-out single in the ninth off Los Angeles closer Brandon League, handed his first blown save in six chances. Matt Kemp hit his first homer of the year and drove in three runs as the Dodgers grabbed a 3-1 lead against Harvey. The budding Mets ace pitched pretty well, though, and was bailed out when his teammates rallied late.

DENVER — Wilin Rosario scored from second on Yorvit Torrealba’s single to left and the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Atlanta Braves in 12 innings. Michael Cuddyer and Josh Rutledge homered for the Rockies. CINCINNATI — Mat Latos pitched four-hit ball into the eighth inning, Todd Frazier hit a long home run and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Chicago Cubs.

Cobb’s gem helps Rays chill Yanks in Tampa
The Associated Press

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Alex Cobb scattered three hits over 8 1-3 innings, Ben Zobrist drove in two runs and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the New York Yankees 3-0 on Wednesday. Cobb (3-1) gave up only two hits through the eighth — Eduardo Nunez’s second-inning single and an infield single by Jayson Nix in the sixth. The right-hander, who struck out seven and walked one, was replaced by Fernando Rodney after giving up a one-out single in the ninth to Brett Gardner. After allowing Ichiro Suzuki’s single, Rodney completed his third save by retiring Robinson Cano and Travis Hafner. Zobrist put the Rays up 2-0 on a two-out, two-run double off Andy Pettitte (3-1) in the fifth.

BALTIMORE — Jim Johnson walked Maicer Izturis with the bases loaded in the 11th inning to force in the tiebreaking run, and the Blue Jays beat the Orioles to avert a three-game sweep and end Baltimore’s run of consecutive extra-inning victories at 17. The Blue Jays hit four home runs, but the decisive run came without Izturis taking a swing. With two outs in the 11th, J.P. Arencibia and Munenori Kawaski singled before Johnson (1-2) hit Brett Lawrie with a pitch and issued a four-pitch walk to Izturis, the No. 9 hitter in the lineup.

Cara Pricher’s five goals led the Mountaineers past Crestwood in a game played Tuesday. Kelsie Davis added a pair of scores for Dallas. Daniella Callaghan and Lizzy Dessoye each scored three times for the Comets.

COLLEGE LACROSSE DeSales 11, Kings 6

King’s couldn’t hold on to a halftime lead and fell at home to DeSales. Lenny Fox led the Monarchs with a hat trick, while Kevin Sweeney, Kieran McMahon and Mike O’Brien also scored.

tional speaker yesterday in (former player and cancer survivor) Jess Ras and the girls really took it to heart. They wanted it as bad as anybody could want anything.” Valley West (3-5 Div. 1) entered the game with three losses by one run and two more by two runs. But the Spartans broke out of the gates quickly as singles by Sabrina Hamersley, Kelcie Senchak and Casey Dolan — along with two Lehman errors — meant a 3-0 lead after one inning. Danielle Grega and Senchak each tripled and scored in the third for a 5-0 lead. Senchak’s triple was indica-

tive of Lehman’s season as the ball skimmed off the top of the outfielder’s glove. The Black Knights (0-8 Div. 2) have had things go wrong too many times, leaving them one of two WVC teams without a victory. Like Wednesday. Lehman hit plenty of balls hard, but right at Valley West fielders. Dolan, the Valley West shortstop, ended up with six assists on groundouts and three putouts on popups. Earlier in the week, it was a 2-1 loss to Nanticoke. “We’re hitting the ball hard, but we’re hitting it at them,” Lehman coach Wayne Oplinger said. “Every ball the other team hits falls in between us, goes an inch over our glove, goes an inch below our glove. Those are facts. How do we change that? I don’t know.” Lehman had a couple scor-

ing chances, the final with one out in the seventh when Vickey Cadwalader doubled. Ruckle, though, got the next two batters to post her second shutout in four games.

will be joined this summer by fellow walk-on Jack Seymour to round out the quarterback stable for this season. Bench, meanwhile, will hunt around for a new school where he may be able to start immediately. Because he is leaving before the start of preseason camp, Bench is eligible to play immediately for another FBS school in 2013. With the exception of the most recent recruiting class, all Penn State players are permitted to transfer without penalty until camp opens because of the NCAA sanctions imposed last July. “I’ve decided to leave Penn State and go to a school that will give me the opportunity to compete for the QB spot and reach my full potential,” Bench wrote on his Twitter account. “Thanks for the love and support. I appreciate it more than y’all know.” The south Georgia native was one of the very first recruits brought in by O’Brien’s overhauled coaching staff. A verbal commitment to Rice, Bench jumped on a scholarship offer from Penn State in the month before national signing day. When he arrived in the summer of 2012, Bench made a quick impression on the team in preseason camp. With Rob Bolden having transferred and Paul Jones struggling, Bench claimed the top backup spot behind Matt McGloin by the time the season started. It was Bench who took the field in Week 2 when Matt McGloin had to briefly leave the game with an injury. His first collegiate play came on a fourth down on the road at Virginia. He finished out the half against the Cavaliers, going 2-for-7 for 12 yards while adding 18 on the

ground. The son of a high school coach, Bench picked things up quickly before hitting a wall midway through his true freshman season. He made only the briefest of cameos the rest of the campaign, going 0-for-1 against Purdue. Though he didn’t play much last season, he had the advantage of a year learning O’Brien’s offense. And he was one of the most outgoing members of the Lions’ 2012 recruiting class, choosing to come to Penn State at its lowest point. On Saturday at the BlueWhite Game, Bench and Ferguson both went 9-of-15 passes and directed two touchdown drives. O’Brien said afterward he wasn’t close to naming a starter, but did hint that he would likely have to keep the competition to two quarterbacks once camp opened. “It’s very difficult to get three quarterbacks reps during training camp, so we’ll have to evaluate that over the next couple of months, how we are going to do that, if we are going to do that,” O’Brien said. “Only one quarterback can play at a time, in my opinion, so we have to do a good job of making sure we know where these two guys stand and make sure they know where they stand. “And then when training camp starts, we have to get Christian some reps and let him get in there and compete and see how that goes. We’re a long way off from that but it is a decision that has to be made at some point in time.”

Red Wings defeat Kings to boost postseason hopes
The Associated Press

Zwinak on the shelf

Penn State also announced Wednesday that top tailback Zach Zwinak suffered a left wrist injury early in the BlueWhite Game and that he will be ready to play in the season opener.

DETROIT — Jordin Tootoo netted the go-ahead goal early in the third period, and Johan Franzen scored on a power play with 6:26 left, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-1 win Wednesday night over the Los Angeles Kings and into eighth place in the Western Conference. Detroit is one point ahead of Columbus and one behind seventh-place Minnesota. All three teams have two games remaining. The Red Wings are aiming to extend their postseason streak to 22, the longest in North American professional sports. Detroit’s Jimmy Howard made 23 saves and Pavel Datsyuk scored a game-tying goal midway through the second period. The Dallas Stars, who are four points behind Detroit, host Columbus on Thursday and Detroit on Saturday.

Lightning 5, Maple Leafs 2

TAMPA, Fla. — Martin St. Louis scored three goals and the Tampa Bay Lightning snapped a six-game losing streak with a victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs. St. Louis, who has 16 goals this season, took over the lead in the NHL scoring race with 58 points — two more than teammate Steven Stamkos and injured Pittsburgh Penguins forward Sidney Crosby. Stamkos scored his 29th goal, two behind NHL-leading Alex Ovechkin of Washington, and added an assist. St. Louis’ goal in the second period came off wrist shot off a slick pass from behind the net by Nate Thompson. In the third period, with the Lightning leading 3-2, St. Louis got to a rebound of Keith Aulie’s slap shot off the boards and slipped the puck past goalie James Reimer.

The RailRiders bullpen imploded while failing to protect a two-run lead, as Columbus scored three times in the eighth inning to pull off the victory. Jeremy Hermida blasted a game-tying two-run homer and Matt Carson scored the winning run on a bases-loaded fielder’s choice. Cody Johnson launched a monstrous home run for the RailRiders first run estimated to be a 450-some foot shot - for the longest blast at the recently-revamped park. RailRiders at the plate: Addison Maruszak had two hits, including an RBI single, after entering the game for ailing outfielder Thomas Neal following the first inning. Johnson unloaded his first home run of the young season. David Adams delivered a bases-loaded, two-run single to put the RailRiders ahead in the seventh inning. And Corban Joseph and Bobby Wilson both doubled and scored runs. It was a four-walk day for Dan Johnson before he flew out to end the game in his only official at-bat. RailRiders on the mound: Ryan Pope came out of the bullpen to make an emergency start because of Friday’s rainout, and allowed two runs while keeping the game manageable through his 3 1/3 innings. Relievers Mark Montgomery and Josh Spence were solid through the sixth inning, but it was a rough outing for Cody Eppley, who pitched out of deep trouble in the seventh before surrendering the game-winning, three-run rally in the eighth. Sam Demel allowed an inherited runner to score the winning run. Play of the game: Third baseman David Adams made two of them. His first was a spectacular backhanded stab of a bullet down the third base line, but he needed nifty glovework on the short-hopped throw from first baseman Dan Johnson to retire Matt Lawson. That stranded Columbus runners on second and third to end the seventh inning, keeping the game tied at 2-all. In the eighth, Adams made a great diving grab of Cedric Hunter’s bunt attempt. Attendance: 5,756 Time of Game: 3:35 Today’s Game: The RailRiders try to get back on the winning track against Columbus at 6:35 p.m. today at PNC Field. Today’s Probables: Former big leaguer Chien-Ming Wang, a righthander who’s 1-0 for the RailRiders and didn’t allow a run in his first start, opposes Columbus RHP Carlos Carrasco, who’s making his first appearance of the season. Riding the Rails: After drilling a one-out double in the bottom of the first inning, Scranton/WilkesBarre outfielder Neal didn’t come out for the second inning. He said the move was precationary, since he felt a little something grab in his hamstring during the earlymorning game. Also, the battle turned into a marathon partly because the team’s combined to allow 14 walks, with RailRiders pitching surrendering six of them. On Deck: The set with Columbus, as well as the homestand, comes to a close Friday, when the RailRiders send Brett Marshall to the mound looking for his first win. On the Radio: All games can be heard on WYCK 1340-AM, 1400-AM and 100.7 FM. HOW THEY SCORED COLUMBUS SECOND: Matt Carson started the inning with a single off the glove of third baseman David Adams, the first of three straight hits off Ryan Pope. Cedric Hunter followed with a sharp single to right field, sending Carson to third base. Mike McDade then cued an opposite field single to left, bringing home Carson. COLUMBUS 1-0. COLUMBUS THIRD: Tim Fedroff led off with a homer onto the grassy birm in right field. COLUMBUS 2-0. RAILRIDERS FOURTH: Cody Johnson did Fedroff one batter, launching a towering two-out solo homer over the grass and onto the walkway before it one-hopped against the rocks in right field for the longest home run at revamped PNC Field. COLUMBUS 2-1. RAILRIDERS FIFTH: Bobby Wilson doubled to center field, then scampered to third base when Columbus right fielder Jeremy Hermida caught a pop by Gil Velazquez on the run in foul territory. One out later, Addison Maruszak looped a single in front of a diving Hermida to score Wilson. RAILRIDERS 2, COLUMBUS 2. RAILRIDERS SEVENTH: Corban Joseph, Zoilo Almonte and Dan Johnson all drew walks to fill the bases with two outs. David Adams delivered Joseph and Almonte by lining a two-run single to center field. RAILRIDERS 4-2. COLUMBUS EIGHTH: Ryan Ruhlinger singled to left field, then Hermida followed with a long home run to right field, tying the game. Carson reached base on a slow-rolling single to third base, and McDade and Juan Diaz both drew one-out walks to fill the bases. Carson scored when pinch hitter Cord Phelps reached on a fielder’s choice. COLUMBUS 5-4.

monkey off my back. Finally!” Johnson said. He nearly knocked that monkey to moon. Johnson, who clubbed 16 homers in 59 games for DoubleA Trenton last season, sent a towering moonshot well over the right field wall against Columbus starter Trevor Bauer to provide the RailRiders with their first run. On the list of impressive homers going back to the old park’s history, the blast rivaled Darryl Strawberry’s bomb off the center field rocks during a 1995 game - when the place had a double deck and was called Lackawanna County Stadium. “I got it good,” Johnson smiled. “He left a first-pitch changeup up in the zone. The ball came in where I was swinging.” Unfortunately for the RailRiders, it didn’t make a huge difference in the outcome. Regular reliever Ryan Pope gave them a chance, coming out of the bullpen and limiting Co-

lumbus to two runs over 3 1/3 innings. David Adams delivered two runs with a bases-loaded single in the seventh inning - to go along with two sterling defensive plays at third base - as the RailRiders took a 4-2 lead. And Johnson’s fourth-inning blast came an inning before the RailRiders tied the game when Bobby Wilson doubled and scored on Addison Maruszak’s two-out looping single in the fifth. But all that work was wasted by a breakdown from Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre’s normally-reliable bullpen. Adams’ nifty backhanded play at third stranded two runners in scoring position in the top of the seventh inning, setting up a tie-breaking single by Adams in the bottom of the frame for a 4-2 RailRiders lead. But the late relievers couldn’t hold it. Ryan Rohlinger singled to start the eighth, then Jeremy Hermida crushed a game-tying, two-run homer off Cody Eppley. Matt Carson followed with a slow-rolling infield hit to third base, finishing Eppley’s outing. Ex-major leaguer Sam Demel - who’s been outstanding with

men on base, was victimized by a day that saw both teams combine for 14 walks. He issued the last two free passes of the game, filling the bases with Clippers, before Cord Phelps reached on a fielder’s choice to score Carson with what proved to be the winning run. “Everybody’s out on the field, you’ve got long counts, it’s hard to really stay on your toes,” said Johnson of a drawn-out affair that last 3 hours, 35 minutes. He didn’t have to deal with that dilemma in the field, though. Johnson hit out of the designated hitter spot in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s lineup, and drew two walks himself after clubbing the home run that gave him a 1-for-2 day. That hit raised Johnson’s average to .143 on the season. “Just haven’t been seeing the ball well, not giving myself enough time,” Johnson said. “Had a rough start to the season.” It got rougher just after the International League season opened, when Johnson left the team for six games due to a family matter. “My mother had heart surgery, that’s what I was gone for

a week,” said Johnson, adding his mom is recovering well. “I’m just happy to have that burden off me. It’s a lot easier to focus now.” He, along with everyone else, watched with amazement as he nearly sent his first homer as a RailRider soaring out of sight. “”It was just a great feeling,” Johnson said. “Huge relief.”

4. PHILADELPHIA – Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah The Eagles did a lot in free agency to fix the perimeters of the defense, but they need help inside. But if an offensive tackle falls … 5. DETROIT – Ezekiel Ansah, DE, Brigham Young Lions hope the disruptive but inexperienced Ansah can ease the pain of losing top sacker Cliff Arvil to free agency. A lineman seems a certainty. 6. CLEVELAND – Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama After spending big to patch up the front of the defense, the Browns pick a corner to pair with Joe Haden in the secondary. 7. ARIZONA – Lane Johnson, T, Oklahoma This is a bit high for Johnson, but the talent level among the left tackle prospects drops off dramatically after him. A QB comes later. 8. BUFFALO – Chance Warmack, G, Alabama Guard positions are a mess, but so is quarterback. Don’t be shocked if the Bills trade for a late firstround pick to take Syracuse’s Ryan Nassib. 9. NEW YORK JETS – Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State Rhodes is a big, physical corner who will fill the void left by the trade of Darrelle Revis to Tampa Bay. Could end up better than Milliner. 10. TENNESSEE – Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri The Titans need a disruptive force inside for a defense that allowed 4.2 yards per carry and surrendered 471 points. 11. SAN DIEGO – Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon Leading sacker Shaun Phillips is a free agent and might not be back. Jordan is an overrated prospect, going as high as two in some mocks. 12. MIAMI – Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington The Dolphins made a big splash in free agency, but still need more help defensively. The corner talent drops after the first three prospects. 13. NEW YORK JETS – Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia The Mark Sanchez era ends, but things might not pan out with Smith, who is the most overrated player in the draft. 14. CAROLINA – D.J. Fluker, T, Alabama Fluker brings toughness and versatility to an offensive line that could have issues at the tackle spots this coming season. 15. NEW ORLEANS – Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia The Saints are moving to a 3-4 defense and Jones would provide an edge rusher. A lack of a secondround pick could cause a trade down . 16. ST. LOUIS – Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia Small but creative playmaker who made Geno Smith look better than he is. The Rams sorely need some playmakers. 17. PITTSBURGH – Barkevious Mingo, OLB, LSU The Steelers defense finished with just 37 sacks and didn’t get enough

production from the edge. They hope Mingo could provide it. 18. DALLAS – Jonathan Cooper, G, North Carolina The Cowboys need help on both lines. It just depends who’s available at the time, although a receiver is a possibility. 19. NEW YORK GIANTS – Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina The Giants must get better up front after allowing 4.6 yards per carry. Williams will give them a guy who can plug up the middle. 20. CHICAGO – Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee The Bears could go in several directions, but definitely need someone to work opposite of Brandon Marshall. 21. CINCINNATI – Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas The Bengals are solid at the cornerback spots, but there is uncertainty at the safety positions with Chris Crocker unlikely to be back. 22. ST. LOUIS – Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama This is a bit high for Lacy, but with Steven Jackson gone the Rams need a workhorse back and there’s not many in this draft. 23. MINNESOTA – DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson There is a glaring need at receiver, especially with Percy Harvin gone. Hopkins could be better than receivers picked ahead of him. 24. INDIANAPOLIS – Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State The Colts patched up several holes in free agency, so they won’t have to reach for a certain position. Werner was a top-10 pick entering the season. 25. MINNESOTA – Manti Te’o, LB, Notre Dame The strange girlfriend story aside, Te’o is a heck of a football player who can solidify the middle of the Vikings’ defense. 26. GREEN BAY — Eric Reid, S, LSU The Packers went heavy on defense in last year’s draft, with their first six picks on that side of the ball. The trend continues. 27. HOUSTON – Keenan Allen, WR, California The Texans need a big, physical receiver to work opposite and be the heir apparent to Andre Johnson, whose been in the league over a decade. 28. DENVER – Jonathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State The Broncos were solid up front, but age is a concern. Plus, two D-line contributors are free agents, leaving the position thin. 29. NEW ENGLAND – Jamar Taylor, CB, Boise State The Patriots showed how venerable they are in the secondary in the AFC title game when Aqin Talib was injured. 30. ATLANTA – Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame Tony Gonzalez is coming back for one more year, so Eifert will be able to learn under one of the best tight ends ever. 31. SAN FRANCISCO – Jonathan Banks, CB, Mississippi State The secondary was the only weak spot – as shown in the Super Bowl – that keeps the defense from being the NFL’s best. 32. BALTIMORE – Jonathan Cyprien, S, Florida International Big safety to help fill a huge void, but the Ravens are a good candidate to trade down with a team looking for a quarterback.

Calif.-based TRD, also lost five points in the manufacturer standings. The penalty to Kenseth, who held off Kasey Kahne of Hendrick Motorsports to earn his second win of the season, dropped him from eighth to 14th in the standings. JGR said it would appeal the penalty. “It is our understanding that one of the eight connecting rods on the engine was ruled too

light,” the statement said. “We are working with our partners at TRD on this issue.” Lee White, president of TRD, said the connecting road was three grams underweight and JGR had nothing to do with the mistake. “We take full responsibility for this issue with the engine. JGR is not involved in the process of selecting parts or assembling the Cup Series engines,” White said. “It was a simple oversight on TRD’s part and there was no intent to deceive, or to gain any type of competitive advantage.”

Payerl ready to grind out playoff goals

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant (35) shoots as Houston Rockets center Omer Asik defends in the first quarter of Game 2 of of a first-round NBA playoff series in Oklahoma City on Wednesday.


Thunder blows lead, hangs on for victory
OKLAHOMA CITY — Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook each scored 29 points, and the Oklahoma City Thunder recovered after squandering a 15-point lead in the fourth quarter to beat the Houston Rockets 105-102 on Wednesday night and take a 2-0 series lead. Durant hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 2:28 to play, and the Thunder didn’t relinquish the lead after that. Durant missed a free throw with 1 second left, but Houston was out of timeouts and Carlos Delfino couldn’t connect on a desperation shot at the final buzzer. James Harden scored 36 points and spearheaded a 21-2 comeback that wiped away the big deficit and put the Rockets up 95-91.

Memphis' Gasol wins defensive player honors
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Grizzlies center Marc Gasol has won his first NBA Defensive Player of the Year award after anchoring the league's stingiest defense. Gasol received 212 points and 30 first-place votes to edge Miami's LeBron James, who had 149 points and 18 first-place votes, the NBA announced Wednesday. "It's a great honor," Memphis coach Lionel Hollins said. "Marc's played well. There's a lot of other guys that are worthy, you know. They saw fit to give Marc the award, and he was deserving." The 7-foot-1 Spaniard averaged 1.7 blocks and 1.0 steals.

Pacers 113, Hawks 98

INDIANAPOLIS — Paul George followed his triple-double by scoring a playoff careerhigh 27 points to lead Indiana past Atlanta. The Pacers lead the best-ofseven first-round series 2-0 and have won four straight home games over the Hawks. It’s the first time Indiana has held a 2-0 series lead since the 2004 Eastern Conference semifinals.

How does a player who spends the regular season going to the dirty areas, banging along the boards and posting in front of the net elevate his game for the playoffs? He does it with more determination. That’s Adam Payerl’s game plan as he prepares to play in his first AHL postseason this Saturday when the Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins travel to Binghamton for Game 1 against the Senators. The 6-3, 216-pound Payerl has established himself as a rugged power forward during his rookie season with the Penguins. He consistently played a gritty game all regular season, and now he could play an even bigger role in the playoffs - a time when unsung heroes emerge. And it’s usually those who spend the season grinding away on the bottom lines that find goal-scoring success in the playoffs. “Goal scoring is a whole different ballgame in the playoffs,” said team leading scorer Chad Kolarik. “You’re not going to see a lot of the tic-tac-toe plays, the pretty goals. It’s going to be a lot of grind and go to the net hard. “Guys that didn’t have a ton of goals during the year, but they’re going to be key parts in the playoffs.” Such a scenario happens every year, Kolarik said, pointing to Washington’s Joel Ward as an example. When Ward played with Nashville two seasons ago, he tallied 10 goals in 80 regular

score goals in the playoffs,” Payerl said.


season games, but went on to post seven goals in 12 playoff contests that year. Payerl, who scored three goals in 44 regular season games, could be in store for similar postseason glory. He likes to mention another NHL player who went from bottom line grinder to playoff hero Max Talbot, who scored two goals in Game 7 of the Finals to propel Pittsburgh to the Stanley Cup in 2009. “Guys like that end up winning games for their team in the playoffs,” Payerl said. But what does a player whose style already includes playing in the dirty areas need to do differently to find playoff success? Well, Payerl already knows what his plan is. “It’s just a matter of having more determination and will to put the puck in the net. You can get to the dirty areas, but it’s not the same when you go there and bear down that extra little bit to

The Penguins enter the postseason with five players who scored at least 20 goals in the regular season (Chad Kolarik-31, Derek Nesbitt-26, Trevor Smith-23, Riley Holzapfel-21 and Paul Thompson-20). Binghamton had no 20 goal scorers in the regular season, so one would assume that offense would be a Penguin advantage. Not so fast. Head coach John Hynes admitted this his team does have good depth on offense, but the goal stats from the regular season don’t mean as much in the playoffs. “The most important thing isn’t about what happened in the regular season, but about playing your best hockey going into and through the playoffs,” Hynes said. “That’s our focus.” Kolarik agreed. “I don’t think anyone has an advantage in this series. Both teams have played well against each other and I expect it to be a great series,” he said. Still, Nesbitt said there is a benefit to playing on a team with so many proven goal scorers. He spent the majority of the regular season with Peoria and was the only player to top the 20-goal mark. “There’s not as much pressure to score as there is when you’re the only guy. Where I came from it was a little more pressure every night,” Nesbitt said. “Now, to be able to spread it around is a huge plus.”

PASADENA, Calif. — The first championship game in the College Football Playoff will be held at Cowboys Stadium. The BCS conference commissioners announced Wednesday that Arlington, Texas, edged Tampa, Fla., in the bidding to be the site of the first title game in the new playoff system. “The stadium itself was the biggest determiner,” BCS executive director Bill Hancock said about the $1.2 billion dollar, state-of-the-art home of the NFL’s Cowboys and the Cotton Bowl. “It’s still the stadium with a capital ‘T.’” The game will be held Jan. 12, 2015. The final three sites for the semifinal rotation also were announced and Cowboys Stadium came up a winner again. The Cotton Bowl will be part of the six-bowl rotation, along with the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta and the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Ariz. The Holiday Bowl in San Diego also bid for a spot in the semifinal rotation, but couldn’t pull the upset. The Rose, Orange and Sugar bowls are already part of the semifinal rotation. The Rose and Sugar will host the first semifinals Jan. 1, 2015, The next season, the Cotton and Orange bowls will host the semifinals on New Year’s Eve. The semis will be played in the Fiesta and Chick-fil-A bowls after the 2016 season.

For the Cotton Bowl and its organizers, landing a spot in the rotation and the first title game is the culmination of a long slow return to prominence for a game with a rich history. The game dates to 1937 and has hosted some of the most memorable matchups in college football, including Notre Dame’s stirring comeback victory led by Joe Montana against Houston in the 1979 game. But when the Bowl Championship Series was implemented in 1998, the Cotton Bowl was left out and lost much of its luster. Organizers for years tried to break into the BCS, but couldn’t overcome the limitations of their antiquated namesake stadium in Dallas. Things turned for the Cotton Bowl when it moved out of the

IN BRIEF Healthlaw featurestalls

House Republicans have put off a vote on legislation to rescue a main feature of President Barack Obama’s healthcare overhaul — affordable coverage for people with pre-existing medical conditions — after it ran into strong opposition from conservatives and Democrats. The legislation is a departure from past GOP efforts to kill the Affordable Health Care Act outright, and faced a White House veto threat. Democrats are against it because it would bail out the struggling program to help those with pre-existing conditions get insurance by raiding a disease prevention provision the administration says is essential. Conservative groups also urged Republicans to vote against it, saying it perpetuated the federal role in health care.

No increase to students’ econ savvy
WASHINGTON — The Wall Street meltdown of 2008 and the ensuing recession did little to help make high school seniors financially savvy and less than half of them have a solid understanding of economics, according to an Education Department report released Tuesday. In real terms, that might mean that students might have difficulty understanding the impact of a poor credit rating, the relationship between consumer spending and higher unemployment or how inflation can eat away at pay raises. Students’ scores of economic literacy changed little between 2006 and 2012, suggesting that the national discussion about the millions of jobs that were lost and homes that were foreclosed didn’t translate to higher academic achievement. During that period, several states added an economics course to high school offerings and some started requiring it to earn a diploma. “It is astonishing that high school seniors do not know more about how economics affects their wallets, their country and the world at a pivotal time in their lives, whether they choose to enter the workforce or pursue higher education,” said David Driscoll, chair of the National Assessment Governing Board, which runs the federal tests. “We need to do more to educate all students in economics so they can make informed decisions, whether they are negotiating a car loan, voting or reading financial news.”

FordMotor profitrises

Ford Motor Co.’s first-quarter profit rose 15 percent to a $1.6 billion thanks to record earnings in North America and strong sales in China. The automaker lost money again in Europe, although it sees some hints of improvement there. Ford earned 40 cents per share, up from 35 cents in the same quarter a year ago. Without one-time charges, including restructuring costs in Europe, Ford would have earned 41 cents. That beat Wall Street’s forecast of 37 cents, according to analysts polled by FactSet. Ford earned $2.4 billion in North America, the highest quarterly total since the company began reporting results regionally in 2000.

iTunes celebrates a decade
By NEKESA MUMBI MOODY AP Entertainment Writer

Britainmay see recession

Recession may just be a word. But in Britain it may become a habit — and a dangerous one at that. It’s possible that official figures on first quarter economic growth, to be released today, could show the country is back in recession, and tension is building. Although economists on average expect growth of 0.1 percent on the quarter, they warn it would take the smallest statistical variation to put the figure in negative territory. That would place the country in recession, typically defined as two consecutive quarters of economic contraction. Another recession — the third since the 2008 financial crisis — is already being referred to with foreboding in the media as a “Triple Dip.” Experts warn that its confirmation would create a wave of negative media attention that would scare consumers away from spending, feeding into a vicious cycle that has the economy flat-lining.

NEW YORK — When Apple launched its iTunes music store a decade ago amid the ashes of Napster, the music industry — reeling from the effects of online piracy — was anxious to see how the new music service would shake out. “The sky was falling, and iTunes provided a place where we were going to monetize music and in theory stem the tide of piracy. So, it was certainly a solution for the time,” said Michael McDonald, who co-founded ATO Records with Dave Matthews and whose Mick Management roster includes John

Mayer and Ray LaMontagne. The iTunes music store became much more than a solution; it changed how we consume music and access entertainment. It’s not only music’s biggest retailer, it also dominates the digital video market, capturing 67 percent of the TV show sale market and 65 percent of the movie sale market, according to information company NPD group. Its apps are the most profitable, it has expanded to books and magazines, and it is now available in 119 countries. This week, iTunes posted a record $2.4 billion in revenue in first-quarter earnings. “They revolutionized the retail landscape by making a truly interactive and

very user-friendly space and platform, and they managed to do it by keeping a great music experience attached to what was very difficult technology,” said Scott Borchetta, head of Big Machine Records, home to Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw and Rascal Flatts. But as iTunes celebrates its 10-year mark Sunday, it faces renewed scrutiny on how it will continue to dominate in the next decade — or whether it can. With competition from subscription services like Spotify and other services like Amazon.com, Netflix, Hulu and others, iTunes will likely need to reinvent itself to remain at the top of the digital entertainment perch.

Spring is upon us, and summer is closing in. I’m starting to see cyclists everywhere as the weather warms up. I’ve noted that many riders are using a variety of apps, for a variety of reasons. GPS-enabled applications to track their progress, speed and route. Apps that remind you when it’s time to hydrate. Even good ol’ fashioned music apps. But what happens when your battery dies? What do you do then? For people on extended bike rides, all of those apps use up a whole ton of power. Sure, there are power packs, extended batteries and all sorts of other gadgets and gizmos you can use to keep your phone charged, but at some

point, you’re going to run out of power. More to the point, all of that represents extra weight you’ve got to lug around. A company called Siva Cycle has stepped in to solve this problem with a product called “Atom,” a small generator and battery pack that mounts to the frame of a bicycle. The Atom has a USB port, so devices can be charged using their standard cables, and the power output is the same as a computer’s USB power jack, so, according to the company, it will charge a device just as quickly as a desktop computer. Using bicycles to generate power is nothing new; dynamo-type generators have been powering lights on bicycles for decades.

The Atom is different — it uses a magnetic rotor mounted on the actual hub of the bicycle wheel to generate electricity, without generating additional drag on the wheel itself. Out of the box, the Atom comes with the generator itself, a removable battery pack with a USB plug, a 3-foot-long adhesive ribbon cord that carries the power from the generator to wherever your device is stored and some other accessories to help mount the device. According to the company, no tools other than those required to remove the bicycle wheel are required.
10-YR T-NOTE 1.71%

The Atom will fit any bike with a hub flange less than 3 inches in diameter and a minimum of 20mm of space between the wheel dropout and the hub flange. Bikes with disc brakes may need to mount the Atom on the front wheel, provided that there is clearance, but a separate version for bikes with disc brakes is in the works. The Atom is a Kickstarter project and is not yet available for purchase; it’s set to begin shipping in November for early adapters who contribute $85 or more to the campaign. After that, it will retail for $105. For more information on the Atom, visit http://www.kickstarter.com/ projects/332999904/the-siva-cycleatom-powering-your-life-one-pedal-a.

It’s truly an addiction — of the most colorful sort

Engaged? Manage your mother-in-law

Michelle Bankes of Luzerne plays the computer game Candy Crush Saga earlier this week as her daughter Lily, 5, watches.



t’s their secret pleasure, of sorts. Despite hectic lives with spouses, children and jobs, Michelle Bankes, Wendy Vandegrift and many others — even, we’re told, a Catholic nun — somehow steal away time to rearrange candy on a computer screen. These “candy crushers” are among the millions who have become hooked on the online game Candy Crush Saga, which many play through Facebook. The game has become one of the most popular online games, surpassing even FarmVille 2, according to websites such as medium.com, games.com and The New York Daily News.

By JOE SYLVESTER - [email protected]

Gamers have a ‘crush’ on

“I’ve played other games, (but) I lose interest,” Bankes, 27, of Luzerne, said. Candy Crush Saga is different. “I don’t know what it is; I guess because it does change as you go on,” she said. Candy Crush Saga was launched for the first time on Facebook almost exactly a year ago, according to the game’s developer, King.com. Now it is the most popular game and overall app on the social network, the company said. “It is the first game to unseat the previous leader, Zynga, from this cov-

eted spot in several years. According to AppData (http://www.appdata. com/), the game is estimated to have more than 15 million daily players on Facebook alone,” King reported The company’s latest figures show the game is played more than 80 million times a day across both Android and iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices) mobile platforms – on top of the gameplay on Facebook. “We feel this popularity is due to the fact that Candy Crush Saga is a perfectly ‘snackable’ or ‘bite-sized’ game,

The to-do list for your wedding seems endless, but one thing you won’t want to forget is deciding how to “manage” your future mother-in-law. “Your fiance’s mother is not your mother, and she’s also not really your friend — yet she’s about to become a big part of what you hope will be the rest of your life,” says Deanna Brann, Ph.D., author of “Reluctantly Related: Secrets to Getting Along with Your Motherin-Law or Daughter-in-Law,” and “Mothers-in-Law and Daughters-inLaw Say the Darndest Things.” Dealing with your future motherin-law isn’t nearly as difficult as you may fear, though, Brann says. Keep in mind that she is not sure how things are supposed to be either. The situation is just as new to her as it is to you. Here are some tips from Brann for starting out on the right foot and setting the tone for how your relationship will go. • Decide what you will call her. Figuring out what you are comfortable calling your future mother-in-law may not seem like a big deal to you, but it’s a really big deal to her. Once you’ve made the decision, talk with her about your choice so she can get used to it. Let her wear it for a while. • Give her a piece of the action. Let her be part of the preparations — as well as the wedding itself. You can assign her major duties or small tasks, but be sure to give her something to do that she can feel good about that will ensure she won’t feel pushed aside or ignored. • Ask her for input. Remember, this is her child’s wedding, too. You don’t have to let her make the most critical decisions, but asking her for her opinion will make her feel valued. • Let her join in the fun. If you’re having a “nail” day or other excursion that includes your mother and bridesmaids, consider asking your future mother-in-law to come along. You don’t have to ask her every time, but extending a few invitations assures her that you want her to be a part of your new life with her son. • Share with her. Keep her updated on the wedding plans and share some of the funny stories with her. Many mothers of the groom feel as though the wedding is happening around them, with them being merely passive observers instead of key players. Help her to have some special memories that she can share with her friends, too. Above all, remember to speak and act with kindness and compassion. Your efforts will go a long way toward ensuring that everyone lives happily ever after.

What causes someone to become a stalker?
Actor Hugh Jackman recently made headlines when he was confronted by a stalker as he left a gym in New York City. Katherine Thurston, 47, followed the actor from his home to the gym, where she chased him with an electric razor (reportedly full of her pubic hair) and repeatedly declared her love. It wasn’t the first time Thurston had accosted Jackman. He and his family reported seeing her outside their home, as well as his children’s school. Many news outlets wanted to focus on the hilarity of the situation. But the important question

So what conclusions has science drawn? We do know that there appear to be two types of stalkers: those who go after a former romantic partner, and those, like Thurston, who pursue an acquaintance or a stranger.

in this situation is what causes someone to stalk? Sure, Hugh is a tall and handsome celebrity, and some of us might follow him around for a minute to snap a photo. But what is happening in the mind of a person who goes to such lengths to repeat-

edly follow a celebrity to work, break into his or her house and even threaten his or her family? What is happening in the brain of someone who stalks? It’s a question science has been trying to answer even before stalking was criminalized in California back in 1990. So what conclusions has science drawn? We do know that there appear to be two types of stalkers: those who go after a former romantic partner, and those, like Thurston, who pursue an acquaintance or a stranger. In short, these “romantic” stalkers are much like addicts — but their heroin of choice just

happens to be a past lover. In stalking cases involving former partners, researchers like Rutgers University’s Helen Fisher believe that stalking behaviors may be linked to some kind of overactivity in the love areas of the brain. She suggests that this heightened activity in the brain’s reward and love systems are behind a “romantic” stalker’s focus, attention, impulsivity and obsession. It’s a form of love — but taken way, way beyond the pale. The second type of stalker is a bit harder to explain. Here’s what we do know: Studies sug-

New machine burns up to 526% more calories than aerobic exercise

Exercises all 620 body muscles in 10 minutes and flattens abs like a board

By John Whitehead, Media Services

Endless Youth and has announced the Total10™ which is being heralded by health and fitness professionals as the best exercise machine in history. The Total-10™ burns up to 526% more calories per minute of workout than aerobic exercise. The Total-10™ provides both aerobic and resistance exercise at the same time. It exercises all of the body’s 620 muscles in 10 minutes. The Total-10 ™ is the perfect exercise machine for the young, old, and even the disabled. It does not cause injuries like other forms of exercise because it does not put stress on the joints or the back. It mimics swimming. Studies show the public is very uneducated about fitness, losing weight and shaping their bodies. This is why the majority of attempts to lose weight and shape the body usually fail. As a consumer writer, I found even I was very uneducated. I got a major education from Dave Dearth, Chief of Staff for Personal Training at Endless Youth and Life®. Dearth is a Certified Professional Body Builder who has won the titles of “Mr. America” (officially called the Nationals), and “Mr. Universe” (officially called the Internationals). It is well known among fitness professionals that Professional Body Builders know more about losing weight and body shaping than any other professional group including doctors. This is because their livelihood depends on it. For a quick education, here is my interview with Dave Dearth. Q: Is it true that you are friends with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lou Ferrigno who played the Incredible Hulk on TV? A: Actually, I am friends with nearly all of the Professional Body Builders. We are a close knit group because there are very few of us. There has only been in history a little over 200 male Professional Body Builders which requires that you are certified and get a pro card from the International Federation of Body Builders (IFBB). Yes, I am friends with Arnold and Lou. I have worked closely with Arnold on a number of fitness projects. Q: So, as one of the ultimate experts on fitness, losing weight, and body shaping, how do you rate the Total-10™? A: I have studied the scientific data from the university studies on the Total10™. I have used it myself, and I have my clients using it. I can say with expert authority that the Total-10™ is indeed the best exercise machine in history for the average person. Q: Can you substantiate that with facts? A: Yes I can. The Total10™ provides both aerobic and anaerobic exercise at the same time. Anaerobic exercise is also called resistance exercise which means you apply resistance to the movement of muscles with weights, bands, or other techniques. Aerobic exercise

After you workout on the Total-10 ™ Also perfect for seniors and you will never want anything else people with disabilities

Front slides into back for compact storage.

Takes as little as 10 minutes a day, 5 days a week to lose weight fast, get flat abs and shape your body.

No impact, no injuries. People with arthritis, bad backs and bad joints can do it easily. Also strengthens bones.

Flattens and firms abs like a board

You shed body fat much faster than with aerobic exercise
uses only oxygen for energy. Anaerobic puts such a demand on the body that both oxygen and body chemicals are needed for energy. The Total-10 ™ has adjustable pedal resistance, adjustable elastic band resistance and the exercise ball induces extra resistance to the core muscles which is mostly your abdominal muscles. Here it is in a nutshell. The biggest cause of health problems and disabilities is Inadequate Muscle Demand. To remedy this, you need to do exercise that provides Adequate Muscle Demand. When you break a bone in your arm and put it in a cast, your muscles and bones deteriorate in a matter of weeks. When astronauts go into space, their muscles and bones deteriorate in a few weeks because of weightlessness. Contrary to popular belief, things like cleaning house, walking or aerobic exercise are not going to provide Adequate Muscle Demand. It is a law of nature that you USE IT OR LOSE IT. Aerobic exercise is good for cardiovascular health. But, if you only do aerobic exercise, your muscles and bones will deteriorate because there is not enough demand put on them to maintain their mass and strength. Bicycles, spin-bikes, treadmills and ellipticals will not do the job because they do not get resistance exercise to the upper body. The Total-10 ™ for the first time in history, in one machine, provides the fastest, safest, the most pleasant and most fun way to exercise all of the body’s 620 muscles with Adequate Muscle Demand in10 minutes. When you do resistance exercise, it triggers what we call the Healthy Chain Reaction or HCR. Q: Can you explain HCR? A: Your body has adaption mechanisms which enables it to change to meet demands. When you do resistance exercise, the body’s adaption mechanisms perceive that you will need stronger muscles in the future. So, it starts a chain reaction to provide you with stronger muscles. First, the body must strengthen your bones to support the stronger muscles. Therefore, your bones get denser and harder. For example, Professional Body Builders who do extreme resistance exercise get bones like steel. One who was a friend of mine got into a terrible car accident with enough force to fracture his back even with his hardened bones. Orthopedic surgeons normally staple a fracture together.But, his orthopedic surgeon was finding that the staples were bending when he was trying to insert them into the bone with his staple device. The surgeon had to use a high speed drill with diamond tips to drill holes in the body builder’s bones so that he could pin the fracture together. I have a 71 year old male client that I have trained for the past 17 years who uses heavy resistance and aerobic exercise. He is stronger and can run faster than 90% of men in their twenties. One day he slipped on ice in the front of his house and went down a long flight of concrete steps. He had welts all over his body but not a single broken bone because his bones were that hard. The Total-10™ will definitely help seniors get stronger and denser bones so they do not fall and break bones which is the leading cause of nursing home admissions. When you do resistance exercise it depletes some of

your muscle tissue which the body has to replace. This and having to build up your bones causes your body to increase the performance of all of your organs and glands in order to provide the building blocks for the stronger muscles and bones. It also improves the performance of your brain which is well documented in scientific studies. Your hair, skin and nails will also dramatically improve in appearance. It will literally de-age you. Q: Why does resistance exercise burn up to 526% more calories than aerobic exercise? A: There are many reasons. First the depleted muscle tissue must be replaced which burns a lot of calories. Most of the replacement is done within 72 hours. Second, your muscles go into a state of partial constriction for 72 hours after resistance exercise. This partial constriction also burns a lot of calories. The building of bones and organs also contributes to calorie burning. Therefore, your body is burning extra calories for 72 hours after the workout, even while you are sleeping. Most of the calorie burning from resistance exercise takes place after your workout. With aerobic exercise, you stop burning 90% of extra calories when you stop working out. A University of Akron study proved that the Total10™ burned 22% more calories than a spin-bike during a 40 minute workout. A spin-bike does provide resistance to the lower body but not the upper body. A University of Illinois study shows that, in a one hour workout plus 39 hours after the workout, resistance exercise burned a total of 1,236 calories and aerobic exercise burned a total of 235 calories. Therefore, resistance exercise burned 526% more calories than aerobic exercise. Most Professional Body Builders who do extreme resistance exercise burn over 7,000 calories a day. Q: Does the Total-10™ shorten the time it takes to do old-style aerobic and resistance exercise each week? A: Yes it does. This is because, with the Total10™, you are doing aerobic and anaerobic exercise simultaneously and you are doing it in a very efficient manner. You are not getting up and moving from ma-

chine to machine or having to set aside times to do resistance exercise then aerobic exercise. I have estimated I can cut my clients’ workout time by 50% with the Total-10 ™ and get better results. Q: What kind of results have you experienced with your clients? A: People who said that they could never lose weight before shed body fat rapidly. Their muscles became firm and shaped. Their abdominal muscles became firm and flattened like a board. You get good results working out 10 minutes a day, 5 days a week, better results 20 minutes, 3 times a week and great results 30 minutes, 3 times a week. Can you spare 50 minutes to 1-1/2 hours a week to get super fit and attractive and avoid disabilities? They say swimmers have the best looking bodies. This is because swimming also provides both aerobic and anaerobic exercise in a very efficient way. With the Total-10™, you are, in effect, swimming in air.

Q: How can my readers get a Total-10™? A:You have to try the Total-10™ to really appreciate it. Once you have worked out on the Total-10™, you will never want anything else. Even people who have disabilities like arthritis, bad joints and bad backs cannot believe how easy and comfortable it is to do a Total10™ workout.

games.” As of Friday, she was stuck at Level 110 for a couple of weeks. “I’m getting Gray to the point of frustration,” Gray said. But a cousin, a Catholic nun who also plays the game, tells her not to get discouraged. She sees friends who have paid for extras to get to the next level, though there is no guarantee the 99 cents paid for the extras will get them to the next level. Some people play the game on their phones. Gray said she doesn’t play nearly as much as some colleagues she saw at a trauma conference recently. “I was really psyched to be there,” she said. “I looked over at my colleague, and she’s playing Candy Crush (on her phone). I said, ‘Are you serious?’ ” Gray plays the game to try to decompress, she said, noting some strategy is involved. “I think it starts out as a form of relaxation,” Gray said. “It’s also as a form of avoidance.” She said people who spend a majority of their relaxation or downtime playing Candy Crush or any games leave less time for interaction with other people, though playing the game with friends on Facebook does create a sort of community. “If they’re paying for it, spending money, giving out their credit-card number, if they’re spending a couple hundred dollars, that’s a problem,” she said. It’s also a problem if it’s taking up too much of your time and you’re not getting things done, if it’s taking time away from your family or work, Gray said. “You should find something to enrich yourself that’s more active and engaging,” Gray advised. “Discipline yourself; say you’re only going to play for a half hour tonight or you’re not going to play at all.”

meaning you can pick it up and play it for 1-2 minutes or for hours – making it an ideal game for when you are commuting, waiting in line or simply taking a break,” the company said. The game is also easy to learn yet difficult to master. The ‘tasty’ challenges Playing Candy Crush Saga initially involves matching three or more colorful pictures of hard candy and jelly beans on a board but gradually offers other challenges. Obstacles such as jelly appear and must be removed. The game includes audio of pleasant background music and voice-overs congratulating players on moves with phrases such as “Tasty!” and “Sugar Rush! In another phase of the game called Ingredients, ingredients appear, and players must collect them and bring them to their delivery point. In Time Limited, players must reach the score required to earn at least one star, and in Candy Order, players collect a number of candies before running out of moves. Friends playing on Facebook can ask for help via extra “lives” or moves from friends. The game is free for the most part; players can pay 99 cents or more to buy extra tools or “lives” to help them advance to the next level. Bankes, who’s been playing for about three or four months, was stuck at Level 305 last week but by Monday was working on 307. Getting that far is no small feat. She did it with some help from her fellow players. “There’ll be different things you have to beat,” she said. “The farther you get in the game, they add other things.” The game developers keep adding more levels, too. There were as many as 350 last week. Bankes said her playing time varies, and she plays either on her phone or on her home computer. “On an average day, like an

hour or two total,” she said. “A few minutes here and there. It’s not like an obsession or something.” She only paid for some extra moves one time. “I was stuck on a level for two or three weeks,” Bankes recalled. “I paid 90 cents and got five extra moves and got off the level. There are times I don’t want to keep playing. It gets aggravating, but I keep playing.” Her husband, Roger, plays, as does her daughter, who is 5 and doesn’t have a full understanding of the game. Michelle and Roger also have a son who is 3.

Wilkes-Barre native Wendy Vandegrift, 47, a married paralegal with three children who lives in Dover, Del., and plays Candy Crush Saga, said she keeps the game in perspective. “I play almost every day,” she wrote in an online response. But, she pointed out, she only plays for “probably an hour” each day, and she’s “definitely not hooked. I can stop whenever I want.” “It’s a fun, challenging, sometimes frustrating game,” Vandegrift said, adding “I NEVER pay for anything.” As of last week, she was stuck

at Level 165 for two weeks. A form of frustration, avoidance Marie Gray, Ph.D., a certified psychologist and an adjunct psychology professor at Misericordia University, can understand people’s attraction to Candy Crush Saga. She knows people who play quite a bit. She also has been playing for about two months, though she limits herself to just playing after dinner. “My children are grown; I’m a grandmother,” she said. “My kids think it’s really funny I’m playing these games. I was always dead-set against video

gest that most stranger stalkers have some type of psychiatric diagnosis. In fact, a recent study by researchers at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, found that individuals who stalk strangers are more likely to have a psychopathology. Generally, it’s some type of personality disorder — characterized by an inability to conform to social norms and expectations when it comes to relating to others. In other words, most stranger-stalkers are mentally ill. It can be easy to dismiss stalking. One U.S. prosecutor even said, “no blood, no crime.” And seemingly outrageous stories about celebrities don’t make it any easier to take seriously. But being stalked is no joke — it can imprison the victim in his or her own life and leave them extremely vulnerable to harm. And most stalkers, whether they fall into the romantic or stranger category, require mental-health intervention. Because both cases, unfortunately, can lead to violence. The psychopathology involved means that an individual may become increasingly obsessive over time, and the “increased rejection” only makes it more difficult to control impulsive behaviors. There’s still a lot that needs to be understood about the science of stalking; many interested researchers believe it has been woefully understudied. But the one big takeaway is this: If you have been or are being stalked, alert the authorities immediately. Don’t wait until things go too far.

THURSDAY, APRIL 25, 2013 Page 7C

Stranger’s encouraging words helped inspire woman toward her goal
Dear Abby: I was moved by the letter from “Losing Slowly in Ohio” (Jan. 14), who is 50 pounds overweight and walks every day with her friend to lose weight. She said that almost daily people made fun of them. My heart goes out to her. I was in her shoes once. With diet and exercise I lost more than 60 pounds, and I’ve kept it off. But I was never ridiculed as she was. On the contrary, one day after I had just begun a daily 1-mile jog and was struggling to keep going, I passed by a man who cheerfully called out to me to “keep at it, and one day you’ll be a 10!”

Abby, I can’t tell you what that meant to me. I thought about his encouragement whenever I felt hopeless and was thinking of giving up. The memory of his kind words inspired me to go on. Thirty years later, I still think about his encouragement with amazement and gratitude. We all have a choice: We can be kind to each other and offer friends and strangers alike support for the challenges we all face, or we can make ourselves feel superior by being cruel and demeaning. In the end, our choice shapes our character and we receive what we give, so we must

choose wisely. I’m sorry that “Losing” has met with only ignorant jerks so far. I would be honored to pay it forward and tell her how incredibly brave she is, and to encourage her to stick with it. Because she has the courage to keep exercising in the face of constant humiliation, I know without a doubt that she will reach her goals. — Wendy in Colorado Dear Wendy: Thank you for your upbeat response. Many other readers were quick to “weigh in” with letters of support for “Losing Slowly”: Dear Abby: Please let “Losing Slowly” know she has another option to continue her new, healthy lifestyle in a safe environment. I have worked in

malls for years, and they have all had a mall walkers’ club. The mall allows people in to walk, including many seniors, before it opens in the morning. There she will have access to a place where everyone is on the same page. The walkers are safe from traffic, the climate, and morons who have the manners of a junkyard dog. The regulars there can tell her how many miles they can cover. It’s a great society of people who support and root for each other. — Never Giving Up in Southern California Dear Abby: I would suggest the two ladies create T-shirts that read “At Least We’re Trying!” and watch the

jeers turn into cheers. — Carol in Wisconsin Dear Abby: I applaud her effort and your response, but may I raise the issue of people like myself who are ridiculed about being too THIN? Strangers say things like “Eat something, or the wind will blow you away!” Please remind your readers that making fun of very thin people is just as hurtful as doing it to overweight individuals. — Wisp of a Woman in the West
To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included.)



ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you request things repeatedly, you’ll sound like a nag, and you’ll be tuned out. So instead, you’ll take matters into your own hands and make it look like fun, too. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The task you’ve been dreading won’t be so bad. Today’s high energy level will make it easier. Once you get over your initial resistance, it will be smooth sailing. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Crowds can cause you stress, especially when you have to keep track of someone or stick with a group. Evening offers just the tranquility you need to calm your nerves. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Does acting “as if” something is true really make it so? Test the theory by assuming a warm familiarity with someone you hardly know. You’ll be surprised at how little time it takes to feel like you’re old friends. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Perhaps one of the most important efforts you can make right now is simply to get more sleep. Taking great care of yourself will set you up to do optimal work in the days to come. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your manner of speaking may be different from that of others, but oh, how you get your point across! The language of emotions is universal, at least in the way you’re communicating now. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The difficulties of the past have made you strong and determined to do something remarkable with your life. Those who’ve had it easy will be affected by the future you create. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your talents will be highlighted, especially your artistic and interpersonal gifts. This creates a sheen of glamour around you, and you’ll enjoy how others react to you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have many friends, but the one who encourages you to give full, enthusiastic expression to your ideas is truly special and will be cherished as such. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). As your guiding planet pulls across the sky from the sun, you might be tempted to do whatever it takes to reach a goal. Take a step back and think about this. A righteous process is the ultimate success. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The reason you go forward with duties you aren’t thrilled to carry out is that you know a valuable secret: The bigger life happens beyond the small world of what you want to do. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your understanding of human motivation and behavior will save you from a hassle — that is if you act on what you instinctively know. Don’t be swayed by strong personalities. Stand up for yourself. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 25). Your limited view of yourself will be challenged this year. You’ll rip up the plan and love how your life follows a natural course through the next seven weeks. Then it’s back to the drawing board, and a new goal shapes your decisions. Cancer and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 4, 33, 12 and 30.
