This sign notifying motorists of the city’s ordinance banning cell phone use while driving is located at Old River Road and Carey Avenue. Above,
drivers, including city zoning officer Frank Kratz, right, use their phones while driving.
Law on books, but enforcement is open question
WILKES-BARRE – It’s been al-
most a year since City Council ap-
proved an ordinance that bans the
use of cell phones while driving.
So how many citations have been
issued?
“I really don’t know,” said Kathy
Kane, chairwomanof council andthe
person who pushed for the ordi-
nance. “I can’t get any answers on
that. Nobody gives me any answers. I
don’t think we’ve cited anybody. It
seems tomethat moreandmorepeo-
ple are using their cell phones and
driving, so I don’t think we are en-
forcing it.”
Kane has been leading the effort to
convince legislators to enact a state-
wide law addressing the issue. She
said she has read a lot of statistics
that show a high incidence of acci-
dents caused by talking or texting on
cell phones while driving.
“I’ve noticed more people aren’t
paying attention to driving,” Kane
said. “You can see it every day – peo-
ple run through red lights, through
stop signs because they aren’t paying
attention to driving.”
The city’s ordinance calls for a fine
of no less that $75 upon conviction of
the summary offense. As far

KINGSTON – There
might be a little-known law
that may result inpeople get-
ting charged for using bath
salts.
While police agencies are dealing withancillary
crimes of bath salts users, such as disorderly con-
duct, Kingston police successfully secured a con-
viction when a man pleaded guilty to illegally us-
ing solvents or noxious substances.
A review of court records show it appears to be
the first bath salts conviction in Luzerne County.
Meanwhile, Luzerne County District Attorney
Jacqueline Musto Carroll said Thursday she is ex-
ploring a petition that would seek a court injunc-
tion to ban the sale of bath salts by retailers, simi-
lar to a court injunction imposed in Lackawanna
County on Wednesday.

WASHINGTON – Promises
made should be promises kept
when it comes to fair pay for em-
ployees of the Tobyhanna Army
Depot, said Sen. Bob Casey, D-
Scranton.
But the Obama administra-
tion has so far failed to enact a recommended
change to the wage system at Tobyhanna to fix a
salary disparity that costs many of the depot’s
workers thousands of dollars in lost pay annually,
Casey said.

WILKES-BARRE – Jim Hag-
gerty has served Luzerne County
in several capacities through the
years.
Currently, he is Kingston may-
or and one of the
county’s home rule
transition commit-
tee members.
The 45-year-old
attorney is now vy-
ing for an open seat on the Court
of Common Pleas. He told The
Times Leader’s endorsement
boardthat his experience has pre-
pared him to serve as judge.
“I think I’ve been a very good
steward of taxpayer money,”
Haggerty said. “The lawis my ca-
reer. It would be a tremendous
honor to be a judge in our coun-
ty.”
Haggerty became mayor of
Kingston in 1998, and has also
run his private law practice in
Kingston for more than 20 years.
In 2009, Haggerty was elected
to serve on the county govern-
ment studycommissiontodraft a
home rule charter; in February,
he stepped down as chairman of
the transition committee, which
was put in place to assist the new
home rule and county council
government that will take effect
in 2012.
He also ran for state Senate in
the 20th District in an attempt to
unseat longtime lawmaker Lisa
Baker.

Apologies to Stephen Sond-
heim, but it’s time to send in the
plows.
It’s April andstill snowing.
An early spring storm moving
up the East Coast is the cause of
the latest, but maybe
not last, snowfall for
Northeastern Penn-
sylvania.
Luckily, the heavi-
estaccumulationsare
expectedtobefarther
northandeast.
Still the National
Weather Service fore-
cast between 2 and 4
inches of heavy, wet
snow for the Wilkes-Barre area.
Higher elevations could see
more, saidRayBrady, ameteorol-
ogist with the NWS in Bingham-
ton, N.Y.
It’s not as if the weather chang-
es immediately from one season
to another, Brady pointed out.
The Spring Equinox occurredon
March 20 and two days later a
storm moved through, dumping
10inches inPittston.
“We have some of our biggest
storms in March and April,” he
said. “It’s not uncommon.”
The low pressure off the coast
didn’t turn out to
be as strong as ini-
tially expected,
saidBrady, sparing
the region a repeat
of March22.
The first phase
of the storm was
forecast as a mix of
rain and wet snow
Thursday night. It
was expected to
change to all snow early this
morning and back to rain this af-
ternoon.

be messy, and the Pennsylvania

HARRISBURG – No player
matched all five winning
numbers drawn in Thurs-
day’s “Pennsylvania Cash 5”
game so the jackpot will be
worth $330,000.
Lottery officials said 70
players matched four num-
bers and won $287 each;
2,408 players matched
three numbers and won $14
each.
Monday’s “Pennsylvania
Match 6 Lotto” jackpot will
be worth at least $600,000
because no player holds a
ticket with one row that
matches all six winning
numbers drawn in Thurs-
day’s game.

POLICE BLOTTER
PITTSTON TWP. – After sit-
ting on the tarmac for two dec-
ades, a plan for an .85-mile road
throughWilkes-Barre/Scranton
International Airport property
connecting several industrial
parks to Interstate 81 has been
given permission to move to the
runway.
The plan can’t take flight just
yet, however, as it still needs ap-
proval fromthe Federal Aviation
Administration.
At a special meeting of the bi-
county airport board on Thurs-
day, the board voted 5-0 to send
an application for an easement
to the FAA. The action came af-
ter numerous months of re-
quests and presentations by
Pennsylvania Department of
Transportation and other offi-
cials who sought the approval.
Time after time the board –
made up of the commissioners
from Lackawanna and Luzerne
counties – voiced concerns
about the project and a per-
ceived lack of benefit for the air-
port. Chief among the concerns
was that by building the connec-
tor road, it would entice traffic
to head through the airport’s
property to get to I-81, especial-
ly trucks going to and from the
multiple industrial parks in Jen-
kins and Pittston townships.
Economic development offi-
cials from the Greater Pittston
Chamber of Commerce and the
industrial parks said the project
is needed for economic develop-
ment, to which board members
said they understood and sup-
ported that but were tasked
with the well-being of the air-
port and its customers.
What changed on Thursday
were two things. One was de-
tails of work being done that
wouldallowfor traffic comingin
and out of the CenterPoint
Trade and Commerce Park to
head to I-81via Route 315 rather
than using the connector road.
The other was promise of sup-
port by state Rep. Mike Carroll
for a turnpike interchange near
the airport and support from
Dupont and Jenkins Township
to apply for grants for future
road projects near the airport.
Luzerne County Commis-
sioner Steve Urban said those
proposals helpedsway himfrom
the no side to the yes side. And
he said he will expect results.
He also noted that Thursday’s
action is not the last step.
“The vote (Thursday) was
just to ask the FAA,” Urban said.
Luzerne County Commis-
sioner Maryanne Petrilla said
she came toThursday’s meeting
expecting to hold further dis-
cussions on the project.
But as the discussion went
deeper, it became apparent
there was enough support to
take a vote, she said.
Petrilla said the application
made to the FAAshould take in-
to account the unanimous vote
and the strong support fromthe
local business community,
PennDOT and the board.
Airport Director Barry J. Cen-
tini cautioned that the FAA will
ask the same questions the
boardhas been, chiefly, “What is
the benefit to the airport?”

WILKES-BARRE – The
amount of the deficit was sober-
ing and the possible ways of re-
solving it even more sobering
when members of the Wilkes-
Barre Area School Board met
Thursday to discuss the 2011-12
budget.
Board members Joseph Mo-
ran, Christine Katsock and Ma-
ryanne Toole met to gather gen-
eral information about the bud-
get situation, along with Super-
intendent Jeffrey Namey and
Business Manager Leonard
Przywara, who used a series of
handouts toexplainwhy the dis-
trict is facing a potential $7.9
million deficit.
Namey saidhe has already be-
gun discussions with adminis-
trators looking for ways to trim
expenses and is considering a
pay freeze as suggested by the
governor, as well as cutting sup-
ply budgets to the bone and
even eliminating staff positions
by attrition or furlough.
A combination of expected
and unexpected changes to the
proposed state budget account
for a large share of the deficit,
Przywara said. District officials
did know the district could lose
nearly $3 million in state fund-
ing that was essentially a pass-
through of federal stimulus dol-
lars, he said, but was not antici-
pating losing more than
$972,000 in reimbursement for
charter school expenses or an-
other $913,693 inaccountability
block grants that the district
used to start the full-day kinder-
garten program. Also slashed
from the state budget was al-
most $30,000infundingfor dual
enrollment, which allows high
school students to take college
courses. All told, the proposed
cuts in funding would cost the
district $4.2 million.
In addition, Przywara said,
the recently completed proper-
ty tax reassessments reduced
the assessed value of properties
in the district by a total of $21.3
million, costing the district
$283,558 in lost tax revenue.
The district has also received
a memo stating the cost for em-
ployee health insurance will in-
crease by 17 percent next year,
Przywara said. He’s also esti-
mated that a provision of the
newfederal health care lawthat
requires employers to cover
adult children up to age 26 on
their parents’ policies will cost
the district $300,000, bringing
the total estimated increase for
health care to $2.2 million.
Added to an estimated in-
crease of $1.2 million for con-
tracted salaries, the total gap in
the preliminary budget is
$7,926,391, Przywara said.
The district will formally
bring the matter to the collec-
tive bargaining unit at an April 7
meeting, he said, andhe is hope-
ful that staff will come to see the
hard choices the district is fac-
ing.
The board agreed to hold an-
other budget discussion open to
the public within two to three
weeks.

EDWARDSVILLE – Catholic
Social Services has lost a court
challengeof arulingthat denieda
zoning variance for a veterans
housing complex at the former
St. Hedwig’s Church property,
but the decision won’t scuttle the
project, an attorney for the agen-
cy said.
The state Commonwealth
Court on Thursday said the Ed-
wardsville Zoning Board acted
properlywhenit deniedthevaria-
nce for the proposed complex,
which straddles land located in
Edwardsville and Kingston.
The ruling means CSS cannot
build on any portion of the com-
plexonproperty that is locatedin
Edwardsville. It is permitted to
buildonthelandthat is locatedin
Kingston, which approved the
project in 2009, said Jamie Hail-
stone, attorney for the CSS.
Hailstone said CSS had initial-
ly planned to build a 30-unit com-
plex, but the court ruling means
it will now have to be reduced to
14 units, all of whichwill be locat-
ed in Kingston.
“We’re still going ahead with
the project, just on a smaller
scale,” Hailstone said.
The proposed project would
cater to war veterans, including
some with disabilities, and their
families. It generated controver-
sy among residents of Edwards-
ville, who expressed concerns at
a zoning hearing in May 2009
that it would house persons with
psychological and/or substance
abuse problems.
The Edwardsville zoning
board denied the request for a
variance, which was required be-
cause multi-family units are not
permitted in a residential dis-
trict. The board determined CSS
had failed to meet the require-
ments for a variance, which state
the applicant must showit would
suffer an unnecessary hardship.
CSSappealedthat rulingtoLu-
zerne County Court, which up-
held the board’s decision. The
agency then appealed to Com-
monwealth Court.
In its ruling, the Common-
wealth Court agreed that CSS
had not met the standard set for
obtaining a variance. The court
noted that to establish a hardship
the applicant must show there
was no other use for the property
or conforming the property to a
permitted use would be cost-pro-
hibitive.
In this case, the court stated an
official fromCSShadtestifiedthe
agency could locate the complex
solely within Kingston, which
does permit multi-family units in
a residential district, but opted
not to do so for “aesthetic rea-
sons.”
“An applicant seeking a varia-
nce must demonstrate that anun-
necessary hardship will result in
the variance is denied ... CSS
clearly did not meet its burden,”
the court said.
After ruling, agency will scale back veterans project, attorney says

WILKES-BARRE – The Pennsylva-
nia Labor Relations Board has deter-
mined Wilkes-Barre committed an un-
fair labor practice when it assigned ci-
vilians to monitor a camera system de-
signed to capture criminal activity.
The ruling, issued March 25 by a
hearing examiner, orders the city to
immediately remove civilians employ-
ed by Legion Security from the video
monitoring rooms and to return the
duty of monitoring the cameras exclu-
sively to police officers.
The decision prompted Hawkeye Se-
curity Systems, the nonprofit company
formed to handle the camera system,
to suspend its contract with Legion
Security on Wednesday, said Trent
Miller, president of the
security firm. Legion
was set to be paid
$131,000 in 2011, Miller
said.
The city has until
April 14 to decide
whether to appeal the
decision, Mayor Tom
Leighton said in a press
release. He did not in-
dicate whether it will do so.
The ruling resolves a complaint the
police union filed in December 2009
that challenged the city’s decision to
allow Hawkeye to hire Legion to mon-
itor the $2.1 million surveillance sys-
tem, which became operational in No-
vember 2009.
The union argued the city had com-
mitted an unfair labor
practice because, by
allowing civilians to
monitor the cameras,
it was taking away
work from police offi-
cers.
After the grievance
was filed, the city al-
tered its policy on
Feb. 15, 2010, by sta-
tioning one police officer in the mon-
itoring room. One Legion Security
guard was also present, but the sole
duty was to provide technical support,
such as fixing downed cameras, and
not to monitor the cameras.
The city believed that resolved the
union’s complaint pending the ruling
on the grievance, but the union didn’t
see it that way. It alleged the new pol-
icy also was an unfair practice because
the Legion employees, who were in
the monitoring room, would occasion-
ally alert the officer if they happened
to notice suspicious activity on a cam-
era.
Jack Marino, the PLRB hearing offi-
cer, sided with the police on both is-
sues.
In his opinion, Marino said there
was no question that the city had al-
lowed Legion employees to assume
surveillance duties from November
2009 up till Feb. 15, 2010, without at-
tempting to bargain with the union re-
garding the matter. That constituted
an unfair labor practice, he said.

Luzerne County’s Democratic and
Republican parties won’t be endors-
ing county council candidates for the
May 17 primary, according to the
chairpersons of both parties.
Instead, both parties are focusing
on educating voters about the candi-
dates.
The county’s Republican organiza-
tion will soon publicly release a voter
guide showing the 16 Republican
council contenders’ responses to a se-
ries of questions about
their experiences and
stances on county gov-
ernment, said party
Chairman Terry Casey.
“We think it’s impor-
tant that people understand the qual-
ifications and intentions of those run-
ning for those seats,” Casey said.
The Democrats will hold a public
forum on April 11 that will allow the
33 Democratic council contenders to
briefly speak about their back-
grounds and positions on county gov-
ernment, said party Chairwoman
Kathy Kane.
“It will give everybody a chance to
at least get a snapshot of who they
are,” Kane said, noting she will soon
announce the forum time and loca-
tion.
Because of the number of candi-
dates, each will have about two min-
utes, she said.
Neither political party is endorsing
a slate in the race for six county Court
of Common Pleas judicial seats.
Sixteen candidates – four Republi-
cans and 12 Democrats – have cross-
filed to run on both party tickets in
the primary.
The 12 Democratic judicial candi-
dates will be invited to speak at the
April 11 forum, Kane said.
Casey expects most Republicans
will support the party’s four judicial
contenders along with two Demo-
crats of their individual preference.
The four Republican judicial candi-
dates are Joseph F. Saporito Jr., Dick
Hughes, James L. McMonagle and
Jim Haggerty.
The Democratic executive commit-
tee decided to endorse only one can-
didate in the primary – Jackie Musto
Carroll for district attorney – because
she is an incumbent and has no oppo-
sition, Kane said.
Kane and Casey said their parties
will rally behind the contenders who
survive the primary.
In the county council race, voters
from each political party will choose
11 candidates to advance to the No-
vember general. Those 22 will then
compete for the 11 council seats. In-
dependent and third-party candidates
may also get on the ballot after the
primary if they secure nearly 1,000
nomination signatures.
The chosen 11 will take office in Ja-
nuary and oversee the county’s his-
toric switch to a home rule govern-
ment system.

that upheld her remov-

The high court is-

Lokuta had asked

DALLAS TWP. – Dallas School Dis-
trict is sending letters to parents in re-
sponse to growing rumors that asbe-
stos will be removed fromthe soon-to-
be-razed high school before classes
end in June.
The letter confirms what teachers
have known for days – that exterior ce-
ment panels containing asbestos will
be removed in the waning weeks of
May – but stresses the procedure and
the panels are safe.
For starters, the letter notes, the
workwill be done only after school and
on weekends, and strictly outside. All
vents or windows will be sealed before
any nearby work starts.
The district will also vacuum the
vents before and after work, and mon-
itor for asbestos “constantly,” said Ted
Corbett, senior projects manager at
TCI environmental services, a firm
hiredbythedistrict tomakesureall en-
vironmental work meets legal man-
dates.
“I have two children in that school,”
Corbett said, stressing the district has
gone “above and beyond” in assuring
public safety.
The panels in question are decora-
tive, not structural. They line the un-
derside of eaves that gird the building.
While they are concrete, the concrete
contains asbestos, a naturally occur-
ring material that can cause serious
healthproblems if brokeninto fine par-
ticles and inhaled, though the risk is
higher with prolonged exposure.
The panels were installed prior to
government regulation of asbestos,
whichhadoftenbeenusedinconstruc-
tion materials to increase “durability
and weather resistance,” Corbett said,
and as a fire retardant.
The asbestos in the panels is “non-
friable,” meaning it is locked into the
concrete and not easily broken into
small enough particles to pose any
risk. Corbett saidthe only way the pan-

DAMASCUS, SYRIA
Civilian deaths to be probed
F
acing a massive protest movement
demanding reform, Syria’s presi-
dent set up committees Thursday to
look into the deaths of civilians during
nearly two weeks of unrest and replac-
ing decades-old emergency laws.
The moves appear to be a carefully
designed attempt by President Bashar
Assad to head off massive protests
planned for today while showing he
will not be pressured to implement
reform — instead, he will make chang-
es at his own pace.
On Wednesday, he dashed expecta-
tions that he would announce sweep-
ing changes, instead blaming two
weeks of popular fury on a foreign
conspiracy during his first comments
since the protests began.
MADISON, WIS.
Gov. will heed judge ruling
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s top
aide said Thursday the administration
will abide by a judge’s order to stop
preparation to implement a divisive
collective bargaining law.
Department of Administration Secre-
tary Mike Huebsch said Thursday the
Republican governor’s administration
still believes the law took effect when a
state office posted online last week.
But he says Walker will abide by Dane
County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi’s
ruling earlier Thursday that the law
hadn’t taken effect.
Sumi’s ruling came after Walker’s
administration ignored a restraining
order she issued earlier this week say-
ing work on the law should stop while
she considers a lawsuit challenging the
statute’s legitimacy.
JEFFERSON CITY, MO.
Extra jobless aid dropped
Thousands of people in Missouri
who have been unemployed for more
than a year soon will lose their jobless
benefits, marking a significant victory
for Republican fiscal hawks who are
crusading against government spend-
ing.
When eligibility ends Saturday, Mis-
souri will become the only state to
voluntarily quit a federal stimulus
program that offers extended benefits.
Michigan, Arkansas and Florida also
recently took steps to cut back on
money going to the unemployed, al-
though they targeted state benefits
instead.
As a result, more than 34,000 unem-
ployed residents in Missouri could
miss out on $105 million in benefits
over the next nine months. Unlike
some other stimulus programs, Mis-
souri’s unclaimed money would not be
redistributed by the federal govern-
ment to other states. It simply would
remain unspent.
NEW YORK
Oil highest since 2008
The price of oil rose to a 30-month
high on Thursday as fighters loyal to
Moammar Gadhafi pushed back rebels
from key areas in eastern Libya.
Benchmark West Texas Intermediate
crude rose $2.45, more than 2 percent,
to settle at $106.72 a barrel on the New
York Mercantile Exchange. At one
point it hit $106.83, the highest it’s
been since September, 2008. In Lon-
don, Brent crude rose $2.25 to settle at
$117.20 per barrel.
Energy traders worry that unrest will
spread across the region to disrupt
shipments from OPEC countries like
Saudi Arabia and Iran. Gasoline prices
continue to rise along with the price of
oil. The national average on Thursday
hit $3.606 for a gallon of regular, ac-
cording to AAA, Wright Express and
Oil Price Information Service.

TRIPOLI, Libya — Moam-
mar Gadhafi struck a defiant
stance Thursday after two
high-profile defections from
his regime, saying the West-
ernleaders whohave decimat-
ed his military with airstrikes
should resign immediately.
Gadhafi’s message was un-
dercut by its delivery — a
scroll across the bottom of
state TVas he remainedout of
sight. The White House said
the strongman’s inner circle
was clearly crumbling with
the loss of Foreign Minister
Moussa Koussa, who flew
from Tunisia to England on
Wednesday.
Ali AbdessalamTreki, a for-
mer foreign minister and U.N.
General Assembly president,
announced his departure on
several opposition websites
the next day.
Gadhafi attempted to ap-
pear undaunted, accusing the
leaders of the countries at-
tacking his forces of being “af-
fected by power madness.”
His government’s forces re-
took the town of Brega.
The rebels said they were
taking heart from the depar-
tures in Gadhafi’s inner circle.
TheU.S. has ruledout using
ground troops in Libya but it
is considering providing
arms.
Defense Secretary Robert
Gates, however, told Con-
gress on Thursday the U.S.
still knows little about the re-
bels, and that if anyone arms
and trains them it should be
some other country.

WASHINGTON — Budget
talks continued Thursday on a
compromise that would avoid a
federal government shutdown,
even as "tea party" protesters
gathered outside the Capitol to
urge Republicans not to stray
from the $61 billion in cuts al-
ready approved by the House.
Atentative deal would result in
cuts of about half that — $33 bil-
lion in cutbacks in one of the
largest one-time reductions in do-
mestic government programs.
But House Speaker John
Boehner insisted Thursday that
Republicans had not agreed to
that level of reductions. He said
the GOP was holding out for the
House-passed bill that included
dozens of such politically divisive
policy priorities
as defunding
Planned Parent-
hood and gut-
ting the Envi-
ronmental Pro-
tection Agency.
That bill died in
a Senate vote.
"We’re going
to continue to
fight for every-
thing that’s in
it," Boehner, R-
Ohio, said
Thursday.
Pressure on
Republicans re-
mains intenseas
conservatives viewa compromise
as a violation of the GOP’s fall
campaign promise to cut spend-
ing by $100 billion. Republican
leaders have argued that that has
been fulfilled with the proposed
$61 billion in cuts this year.
Under gray skies, the influen-
tial conservative group Tea Party
Patriots converged on Capitol
Hill, telling members of Congress
that it would be worth a shut-
downtoachievethepromisedlev-
el of cuts.
"Cut it or shut it," theycheered.
Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., a con-
servative favorite of the small-
government activists, announced
fromthe stage: "It’s time to pick a
fight."
Jenny Beth Martin, a co-foun-
der of Tea Party Patriots, the
group that organized the rally,
said the House GOP must stand
firm.
"They can’t go lower than $61
billion," she said. "They’ve al-
ready compromised."
White House spokesman Jay
Carney on Thursday called the
House measure "not viable," be-
cause it failed to clear the Senate.
Carney suggested that Boehn-
er and other Republican leaders
wanted to avoid a shutdown and
that the administration was opti-
mistic about reaching an accord.
"We donot have a deal," he cau-
tioned. "But there is a target num-
ber fromwhich the details can be
worked out."

HAMILTON, Mont. — A Montana
RadioShack owner said he will contin-
ue to give away guns with satellite
television subscriptions despite the
corporation’s insistence he halt the
promotion.
Since October, Steve Strand has
been offering a gift card for a $125
pistol or $115 shotgun and a free back-
ground check to customers who sign
up for two-year Dish Network packag-
es.
Those not interested in the firearms
can opt for a $50 pizza gift certificate.
RadioShack Corp. officials called
Strand on Tuesday and ordered him
to pull the promotion.
“RadioShack has taken the position
that we’re tarnishing their brand im-
age with the promotion,” he said. “I
don’t think this is a negative impact. I
don’t think they understand the way
of life in Montana.”
RadioShack Corp. has stated that
Strand’s offer does not follow the cor-
poration’s marketing practices.

TOKYO, Japan—Japanis increasingly
turning to other countries for help as it
struggles tostabilize its tsunami-stricken
nuclear plant and stop radiation leaks
that are complicating efforts to recover
the bodies of some of the thousands
swept away by the towering wave.
French, American and international
experts — even a robot — are either in
Japan or on their way, and French Presi-
dent Nicholas Sarkozy visited Tokyo on
Thursday to meet with the prime minis-
ter and show solidarity.
Workers are racing to findthe source of
contaminated water that has been pool-
ing in the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear
plant since the March 11 earthquake and
tsunami.
“The amount of water is enormous,
and we need any wisdomavailable,” said
nuclear safetyagencyspokesmanHidehi-
ko Nishiyama.
A spokesman for plant operator Tokyo
Electric Power Co. said Thursday that ra-
dioactive contamination in groundwater
15 yards under one of six reactors there
had been measured at 10,000 times the
government standard. It was the first
time the utility has released statistics for
groundwater near the plant.
Traces of radioactive Iodine-131 were
found in milk in California and Washing-
ton, according to federal and state au-
thorities who are monitoring for contam-
ination. But the officials say the levels are
still 5,000 times below levels of concern
and do not represent a public health
threat.

SCRANTON– Public and paro-
chial schools had their say on pro-
posed legislation before the state
Senate regarding school vouchers
during a Democratic Policy Com-
mittee hearing Thursday at Mary-
wood University.
Officials from the Scranton,
Blue Ridge and Moun-
tain View districts along
with representatives of
the Scranton Hebrew
Day School, Keystone
Christian Education As-
sociation and the Dio-
cese of Scranton ad-
dressed their polar takes
on Senate Bill 1.
About 50 percent of
students in Scranton will
become eligible for the opportuni-
ty scholarships in their third year
if the bill is enacted, according to
Scranton Federation of Teachers
President Rosemary Boland.
She saidthe bill, as written, will
not prohibit private schools from
choosing their students from a
fieldof applicants while the public
system would continue to accept
all students.
“Theplainfact is that unless the
child is well-behaved, belongs to
the ‘right’ social class or religion,
or hastheright mixof intellectual,
creative, and athletic abilities,
that childmay not be chosentoat-
tend said private school,” Boland
said.
Redistributingpublic dollars in-
to private education will cause
challenges to districts across the
commonwealth, said Mountain
ViewSchool District Superintend-
ent Dr. Andrew Chichura.
“The voucher system is going
totakemorefunds fromthepublic
schools. The proponents say that
it’s not going to, but there’s only
one pot of money,” he said.
Opponents seek the addition of
accountability standards in pri-
vate schools to the current lan-
guage in S.B. 1.
In separate testimony, REACH
Foundation Executive Board
Member and KCEAExecutive Di-
rector the Rev. Theodore Clater
saidreligious schools build“much
more of a community-based fam-
ily environment.”
Clater also called the
accountability to parents
amore“trueaccountabil-
ity” than reporting facts
and figures to a govern-
ment entity.
Diocese of Scranton
Secretary for Catholic
Schools and Superin-
tendent Kathleen Han-
lon said there are often
misconceptions about
theexclusivityof private, Catholic
schools.
“Our families, contrary to pop-
ular belief, represent thesocietyin
which we all live and have the
challenges which we all face,” she
said.
She said private schools also
regularly accept students with

U.S. Rep. Tom Marino has
come under fire for comments he
made earlier this week regarding
the U.S. launching missiles into
Libya.
A story on Thursday’s online
edition of the Philadelphia In-
quirer labeled Marino a “geogra-
phy dunce” for comments he
made toanother newspaper earli-
er in the week, alleging Marino
did not realize Libya is an African
nation.
Marino spoke about President
Obama’s policy in Libya and said
Congress was not consulted be-
fore air cover and missile strikes
were launched.
Marino reportedly stated that
“the bottom line is I wish the
president would have told us,
talked to Congress about what is
the plan. Is there a plan? Is the
mission to take Gadhafi out?”
“Where does it stop?” he con-
tinued. “Do we go into Africa
next? I don’t want to sound cal-
lous or cold, but this could go on
indefinitely around the world.”
Inquirer writer Thomas Fitz-
gerald quipped Thursday that
“Libya, of course, is in Africa.
D’Oh!”
Marino’s spo-
keswoman Ren-
ita Fennick said
Thursday the
congressman
was quoted cor-
rectly, but read-
ers, including
those at the Inquirer, apparently
misunderstood his comment.
There are no U.S. soldiers on the
ground fighting in Africa, Fen-
nick said, and Marino wants to
keep it that way.
“We are not in Africa. There
were missile strikes, but many of
those missiles were launched
from Missouri,” Fennick said.
“The congressman’s position is
that we don’t want to go into Afri-
ca, (but) a few days of missile
strikes does not put us on a conti-
nent.”
Fennick said Marino’s office
was “baffled” about how the
quote could have been misunder-
stood.
Marino remarks stir heat,
but he sees no problem
The local congressman had
expressed concern over
possible U.S. escalation.

els at the high school could be-
come a threat would be to grind
or sand them into powder.
Still, he conceded, workers will
be required to wear special suits
and respirators under govern-
ment regulations, but he noted
those regulations also protect
students andthepublic. Asbestos
removal has been done in hospi-
tals using the same procedures
the district will use, and “You
can’t evacuate a hospital.”
The Dallas High School work
will be done when no students
are around and only outside.
District Buildings and
Grounds Supervisor Mark Kray-
nak said the contractors want to
remove the panels before the last
day of school – June 3 – because
they have a very tight schedule
for the demolition of the building
this summer. A new school on
neighboring property is set to
open next September, and the
demolition work must be fin-
ished before then.
Kraynak said the school board
managed to get the construction
of the newschool andthe demoli-
tion of the old one done at a sub-
stantial savings, and that keeping
to the tight schedule ensures the
cost won’t increase.
Removal of the panels before
the end of school is one of several
efforts to keep the project on
schedule.
The letter being sent to par-
ents notes that, “on or about May
9th, items will start being re-
moved off hours and over week-
ends fromwithin the school …in-
cluding but not limited to specif-
ic stets of student lockers, sci-
ence andchemistry labproducts”
andsurplus/storednon-essential
supplies.
Superintendent Frank Galicki
said removal of the panels would
occur only between 4 p.m. and
12:30 a.m., and on weekends. He
said teachers had been recently
toldabout it, andthat heknewru-
mors had begun circulating. The
letter is being sent out to all par-
ents and posted on the district
website to head off the growing
rumors.
“We want to be completely
open about this,” Galicki said.
“Anyone with any questions can
call us.”
The letter includes the admin-
istration phone number, 674-
7221.

Ted Corbett, a senior
project manager for TCI

discusses the safety pre-
cautions that will be used
in the removal of exterior

Santora, argued Lokuta had
been wrongly prohibited
frompresenting evidence at
a second hearing that was
called to re-examine her
case in light of the Luzerne
County corruption probe.
The attorneys also
claimed the high court
erred in upholding the dis-
ciplinary court’s finding
that attorney Richard
Sprague, a member of the
panel that presided over her
misconduct trial, was not
obligated to recuse himself
based on his prior represen-
tation of Robert Powell, a
key figure in the corruption
probe.
The ruling leaves Lokuta
only one option – an appeal
to the U.S. Supreme Court –
in seeking to regain her
seat.
Michak said he had not
spoken to Lokuta on Thurs-
day, but believes she in-
tends to file the appeal.

Marino found the city continued
to be in violation after February
2010 based on testimony by offi-
cers that Legion employees would
sometimes adjust camera views
and alert officers to activity, even
though they had been instructed
not to monitor the cameras.
Miller said Thursday he found
that part of the order to particular-
ly “absurd.”
“Our guys were there for tech-
nical support. They were not al-
lowed to monitor the cameras,”
Miller said. “If they saw a crime in
progress, what is the moral human
being to do? Not say anything be-
cause it’s a violation of a labor
agreement?”
Phil Myers, president of the po-
lice union, said he doesn’t fault
the Legion employees from speak-
ing up, but the fact remains they
were doing the job of a police offi-
cer.
“I guess they did what they felt
was right. The fact is they
shouldn’t have been there. They
were doing a police officer’s job by
just being there,” Myers said.
Miller was also upset by state-
ments made by police who said
they saw Legion employees watch-
ing movies, sleeping, doing puz-
zles or reading magazines and
newspapers while on duty.
Miller acknowledged some em-
ployees did do that, but said he
had no issue with that because
their job was technical support,
not to monitor the cameras.
He said he was upset police
raised that issue in their com-
plaint given that he has personally
seen police officers sleeping, read-
ing books or texting while they
were supposed to be monitoring
the cameras.
“Sometimes they’re playing a
computer game or watching a mo-
vie,” he said. “It’s something you
try not to bring up . . . (but) I’m
not going to have my guys run
down in the press.”
Told of Miller’s comments,
Myers said he was not aware of
any allegations officers were sleep-
ing or otherwise not paying atten-
tion to the cameras.
The PLRB order directs the city
to remove the Legion guards im-
mediately. It does not provide any
monetary award for police officers.

with information on places
where bath salts are being sold,”
MustoCarroll said. “We may con-
centrate on one municipality or
take it a big step forward and go
countywide. We’re exploring the
possibilities right now.”
Three Lackawanna County
judges on
Wednesday
granted an in-
junction that
banned six
Scranton busi-
nesses from
selling bath
salts. The six
businesses
were targeted
in a petition fil-
ed by Lacka-
wanna County
District Attor-
ney Andrew
Jarbola after
the retailers did
not voluntarily
remove bath
salts from shelves.
Musto Carroll said she had a
discussion with Jarbola on
Thursday.
“What we hope to accomplish
is similar to what the district at-
torney did in Lackawanna Coun-
ty,” Musto Carroll said. “What
this will do is give prosecutors a
basis to charge retailers with dis-
tributing the products under the
nuisance laws until the state leg-
islature can put something into
place.”
ThestateHouseof Representa-
tives on Monday is scheduled to
vote on legislation that would
ban certain chemicals used in the
manufacture of bath salts. If it
passes, the bill will be taken up in
the state Senate.
But police in Kingston charged
RichardGaryHartnett, 26, of Par-
sons, with a seldom-used crime
of illegal use of certain solvents
when he was found yelling on Da-
vis Street on Feb. 6. Hartnett was
foundwithtwocontainers of bath
salts in his pockets, according to
the criminal complaint.
At a preliminary hearing on
March 16, Hartnett pleaded
guilty to the charge and was sen-
tenced to six months probation.
“It is one crime we found that
we can charge people with,”
Kingston police Chief James
Keiper said. “We’ve had multiple
incidents involvingbathsalts this
year. Until the legislature makes
bath salts illegal, we’ll continue
to encounter this problem.”
In the absence of a state law,
police agencies are dealing with
crimes associated with bath
salts.
Wilkes-Barre police said they
arrested Kenneth Albelli, 37, of
Dillon Street, late Wednesday af-
ternoon when he was chasing af-
ter and yelling at passing cars on
East Main Street. Police said he
was under the influence of bath
salts.
It was the third time Albelli
was arrested this week for caus-
ing disturbances on East Main
Street, police said.
Earlier this week, city police
chargedtwoLackawanna County
women with reckless endanger-
ment while they were under the
influence of bath salts while rid-
ing in a vehicle, according to
charges filed.

The sale of illegal use of certain
solvents and noxious substances
law says: “No person shall, for the
purpose of causing a condition of
intoxication, inebriation, excite-
ment, stupefaction, or the dulling
of his brain or nervous system,
intentionally smell or inhale the
fumes from any noxious substance
or substance containing a solvent
having the property of releasing
toxic vapors or fumes.
“The law also prohibits the retail
sale of any noxious substance or a
solvent capable of releasing toxic
vapors or fumes.”
T H E W O R D I N G O F T H E L AW:
U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton,
signed on as a cosponsor of legis-
lation that would ban so-called
bath salts and other synthetic
drug substitutes and classify them
as controlled substances.
H.R. 1254, or the Synthetic Drug
Control Act, was introduced
Wednesday. It would ban the com-
pounds used in synthetic drugs
that are sold as bath salts or plant
food. It also would include the
drugs among those listed by the
U.S. Drug Enforcement Adminis-
tration as Schedule 1 substances
that have no legitimate medical
use such as heroin and marijuana.
The bill gives the DEA more au-
thority to temporarily ban so-
called bath salts in the interest of
public safety until the chemical
can be proven harmful or lacks
medicinal or industrial value. Once
proven, the chemical should be
banned permanently.
Recent reports of erratic and
violent actions committed by
people under the influence of
so-called bath salts have been
shocking, said Barletta.
“There is no question that syn-
thetic drugs such as these bath
salts pose a clear and present
danger to the residents of North-
eastern Pennsylvania, and these
substances should be banned
immediately,” he said.

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — An
early morning phone call on a
Saturday usually means one
thing for the IT workers at the
New York state Division of
Housing and Community Re-
newal.
"I said, ‘Great, the server’s
down,’" said John Kutey, 54, of
Green Island.
Nope. Instead, he and six col-
leagues hadhit the jackpot: $319
million in the multistate Mega
Millions game’s fifth-largest
prize in its history.
"It still seems unreal to us,"
Kutey said Thursday at a news
conference at state lottery head-
quarters in Schenectady.
Eachof the sevenwinners will
collect a check for $19.1million,
after taxes.
Some of their colleagues
might be kicking themselves.
Co-winner John Hilton, 57, of
NorthGreenbush, saidthere are
about a dozen workers in the in-
formation technology depart-
ment who start playing the lot-
tery at $2 per person when the
jackpot hits $100 million.
"We keep a checklist of who’s
in and who’s out for any particu-
lar drawing," he said. This time,
five names were crossed off the
list when they declined to play.

SCRANTON – Lackawanna County
Commissioner A.J. Munchak and former
Commissioner Robert Cordaro pleaded not
guilty Thursday to a superseding indict-
ment filed against them this week.
They were arraigned before U.S. District
Magistrate Judge Thomas Blewitt in the
federal courthouse in Scranton at 11 a.m.
Cordaro entered a “not guilty” plea, while
Munchak declared himself “absolutely not
guilty.”
“I wish the trial was tomorrow. I’m inno-
cent, and I’m confident that my name will
becleared,” Munchaksaidwhileleavingthe
courthouse. He declined further comment.
“We’re very comfortable with the truth of
this case. We’re very comfortable with the
facts of this case. (My attorney) Bill (Costo-
poulos) saidit whenwe startedthis process
– we are also very comfortable despite the
trend around here that we’re going to get a
fair jury. If we get a fair jury, we’ll be fine,”
Cordaro added.
They face a 41-count indictment charging
themwithracketeering, money laundering,
honest services fraud, bribery, extortion,
and other offenses.
The latest indictment filed on Tuesday
made15 technical changes to the second in-
dictment, including the addition of two
moneylaunderingcharges against Cordaro.
While they had previously pleaded not
guilty, these changes required another ar-
raignment.
Federal prosecutors allege Cordaro and
Munchak used their positions as county
commissioners to extort money from com-
panies that did business with the county in
what some have called a “pay to play”
scheme.
The latest superseding indictment made
mostly technical changes to this indict-
ment, primarily grammatical and legal clar-
ifications, although two money laundering
charges were also added against Cordaro.
The trial is scheduled to begin June 6 in
the Max Rosenn Federal Courthouse in
Wilkes-Barre.

HAZLETON– With his two children
at his side, single father Peter DeMarco
stood outside state Rep. Tarah Toohil’s
office on Monday to ask her and other
elected officials to pass a state budget
that forces large corporations to help
fill a budget deficit rather than shift the
entire burden of program cuts and
higher local taxes onto working
families.
DeMarco joined more than a
dozen other Northeastern Penn-
sylvania labor leaders and repre-
sentatives of the Coalition for
Labor Engagement and Ac-
countable Revenues (CLEAR)
who said Gov. Tom Corbett’s
proposed budget requires sacri-
fice from students, homeown-
ers, small-business owners, educators
and health care workers to fill a $4 mil-
lion deficit.
However, they said, the budget lets
big business, particularly out-of-state
gas drillers, escape paying their fair
share.
DeMarco, of West Hazleton, saidhe’s
a registered Republican and a Service
Employee International Union mem-
ber who works as a certifiednursing as-
sistant at a nursing home and as a Real-
tor in the Hazleton area.
“If you’re working or unemployed, if
you have children going to school ... if
you’re simply struggling to pay your
bills and put food on your table day af-
ter day, we’re all in the same boat, and
that boat is starting to sink,” he said.
DeMarco acknowledged that Cor-
bett vowed not to raise state taxes.
“What we’re not told is that
taxes in your local school dis-
tricts will go up. The home you
are struggling to pay for now
and may even be losing will
cost you even more money to
live in with higher taxes. And
renters, if your landlord is pay-
ing higher taxes, what do you
thinkis goingtohappentoyour
rent?” he said, adding that
Medicaid cuts will hurt “the most vul-
nerable.”
This can be avoided by closing cor-
porate loopholes and by taxing cigars
and smokeless tobacco, he said.
Toohil, R-Butler Township, in an e-
mailedstatement saidshe’s pleasedthe
coalition members were exercising
their First Amendment rights, but she
wasn’t sure why they were targeting
her, as they never askedher positionon
the issues. She said she has concerns
about the budget and wants to see edu-
cation funding increased.
“We need to create a better formula
for our schools,” Toohil said. “We need
to make cuts in the bloated welfare
budget with proven fraud, abuse and
waste problems.
“I believe that $27.3 billion is the
number that we will endupwithfor the
budget. However, we need to change
some of the priorities. When I go back
to session in Harrisburg on Monday, I
am going to talk to our leaders about
these problems and fight for my con-
stituents,” Toohil said.
S TAT E B U D G E T C U T S Protesters say governor’s proposed plan lets big business, gas drillers escape paying their fair share
Labor reps protest outside Toohil’s office

It appears that a charter school will
open in the Hazleton Area School Dis-
trict.
The Pennsylvania State Charter
School Appeals Board on Wednesday
voted unanimously (6-0) to grant the
appeal of the Valley Academy Charter
School.
The vote reverses a decision of the
Hazleton Area School Board and will
result inthegrant of acharter for Valley
Academy, Stephen Seach, an attorney
for the school, said in a statement.
Although the appeals board has not
yet issueda writtenopinion, it statedin
a public meetingthat Valley Academy’s
plan substantively meets the require-
ments for a charter school. The appeals
board commended the work of five
Wilkes University professors who
helped establish the curriculum, Seach
said.
Valley Academy Charter School
founders Aprilaurie Whitley and Stan-
ley Warner are pleased with the deci-
sion.
School organizers successfully
fought two legal battles thus far. In the
latest round, attorney Michael Senape
presentedoral argument to the appeals
board, and the legal briefs were a col-
laborative effort of attorneys Senape,
Seach, Catherine McGovern and
James Senape.
In an earlier challenge by the school
district, Valley Academy witnesses tes-
tified before Luzerne County Judge Ti-
na Polachek Gartley in support of the
1,190 signatures they had obtained.
Seach presented the testimony of sup-
porters and legal arguments, and Gar-
tley found that there was sufficient
community support for the appeal to
proceed.
A charter school is a type of public
school free of some state restrictions.
The school must be approved, or char-
tered, by the public school district in
which it will be located.
Valley Academy would serve stu-
dents in ninth through 12th grades, fo-
cusing on environmental science and
math.
Organizers submitted an application
in 2007 to be chartered by Hazleton Ar-
ea School District, and a state-mandat-
edpublic hearingwas heldthat Decem-
ber. District officials recommended re-
jecting the application at the time,
though the School Board never voted
onit. That’s because the academy orga-
nizers withdrew the application. They
later re-entered the application , but it
was denied in the spring of 2009.
The Valley Academy School Board
will meet to discuss further proce-
dures.
Hazleton Area School Board Vice
President Tony Bonomo said there
were no plans to appeal the decision of
the state appeals board. He also said
the charter school might even help the
district’s financial situation.
“It is time …toworktogether,” Bono-
mo said.
Decision paves way for Hazleton-area charter school
The proposed Valley Academy
had been rejected by Hazleton
Area School District.

Resident finds no rest
from noise at airport
I
am writing in response to a previously
published letter to the editor. I have
been living in Wyoming for an extended
time and I, too, am frustrated with the
annoyance of the Wyoming airport.
We all work different, hectic schedules
and look forward to our time off and per-
haps catching up on well-deserved rest. It
is just not right for these planes to dictate
our lives in such a profound manner.
If there are others who agree, you really
should contact your local authorities. This
is an issue that needs to be addressed.

If saved, Sterling could
still be a jewel of city
I
am very upset to hear that the Hotel
Sterling might face demolition.
This was the heart and center of
Wilkes-Barre from the time its doors
opened to its closing. This hotel was not
just another inn, but a valuable piece of
history. For this building to make it
through the Great Depression is fascinat-
ing.
The hotel brought great joy to Wilkes-
Barre. I remember some of the famous
people to walk through its doors. I remem-
ber when President John F. Kennedy and
members of Congress came to town, as
well as boxer Muhammad Ali. They could
have stayed anywhere, but they chose the
Sterling.
I worked there at one time. Each time I
walked through those doors, it took my
breath away. I felt like I was surrounded by
art – the staircase, the woodwork, the
marble, the beautiful carvings above the
stairs and the chandeliers that were care-
fully cleaned.
This building is a great part of Wilkes-
Barre’s history. If torn down, it will be like
watching a loved one die.
CityVest should pay back all of the mon-
ey it took from taxpayers, so that the Ster-
ling could have a chance to come alive
again. CityVest should have listened to
architect Carl Handman, and fixed the roof
and windows his way. With only that done,
there still would have been plenty of mon-
ey to work with for the interior.
Why pay a construction crew from Chi-
cago to demolish the Sterling? I don’t
think they care about the building. Why
pay for those workers’ meals and lodging?
What a waste of money.
The $6 million should have been given
to the historical society; at least its heart
would have saved the Sterling.
It could bring back many businesses to
Wilkes-Barre. Tourists would want to visit
one of the oldest hotels around, and it
could be the site of art exhibits, fashion
shows and weddings. The Sterling could
still be the heart and jewel of this city.
We need to stand together and listen to
the cries of our city’s ancestry being
thrown away, discarded like a candy wrap-
per. So much will be lost. We need to stand
up, protest and be heard.
Don’t let the modern world take away
our history.

Church has long backed
workers’ union rights
T
o hear some people tell it, supporting
unions is up there with the seven dead-
ly sins. However, based on its history
and principles, the Catholic Church favors
workers’ rights to unionize and to strike.
In 1887, Baltimore’s Cardinal Gibbons
supported the Knights of Labor. Catholic
John Mitchell organized the United Mine
Workers with the help of Father John Cur-
ran. In 1891, Pope Leo XIII argued that
workers had a right to a sufficient wage,
reasonable hours, rest periods, health
safeguards and a decent work environ-
ment. Later, Pope John Paul II supported
Solidarity in Poland and its leader, Lech
Walesa, asserting the fundamental princi-
ple of “the priority of labor over capital,”
saying, “There is a need for ever new
movements of solidarity of the workers
and with the workers” and that “the
church is firmly committed to this cause.”
More recently, Pope Benedict XVI wrote
that the promotion of unions that can
defend workers’ rights must “be honored
today even more than in the past.”
Indeed, Section 68 of the “Pastoral Con-
stitution on the Church in the Modern
World” states that among the basic human
rights is the right to found unions without
risk of reprisal and that strikes “may be
necessary.”
Referring to the troubles in Wisconsin,
the chairperson of the U.S. Conference of
Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Domestic
Justice and Human Development said,
“These are not just political conflicts or
economic choices; they are moral choices
with enormous human dimensions.”

Getting rid of unions
makes good fiscal sense
I
t’s about time the states are correcting a
problem that has been around for many
years: unions.
In their heyday, they were well managed
and protected the workers within reason-
able limits. Today, unions have become
Frankenstein-like monsters. They have
become so powerful that trying to deal
with them was, and is, useless. States such
as Wisconsin, New Jersey and others are
attempting to cut these unions down to
size, as they have become a cancer in our
daily lives. These unions are sucking us
dry of every cent we have with their pen-
sions, health care and miscellaneous other
perks that are paid for by the common
taxpayer.
It isn’t only happening in Wisconsin; it is
happening in your backyard in Pennsylva-
nia. Do you know how much teachers get
paid? Do you know how much they pay
into their health care and pensions? Who
is making up the difference? You and I are
with our taxes. This has got to stop.
Yes, education is important. But does
financing education with more of our tax
dollars improve anything? I think not. A
dedicated teacher with the right attitude
will educate those kids willing to learn.
Giving more money to the schools doesn’t
guarantee a student’s willingness to learn.
Giving more money to the unions doesn’t
guarantee teachers will be qualified to
educate our children. It starts at home.
You can say the Republicans are on a
witch hunt to hurt us all, but that isn’t
true. They are trying to save their individ-
ual states, and us, from going bankrupt.
Unions are a major part of the problem.
Why don’t you see the Democrats do this?
It is because the unions contribute to their
campaigns, and they don’t want to see a
major percentage of their support dis-
appear.
So let’s support our legislators elected to
get us out of the mess. If we continue to go
along this same path of spending more
than we have, soon there won’t be any-
thing there for us to spend.

cope with some
type of disability –
hearing, vision, mobility, cog-
nition.
That shouldn’t keep them
from enjoying the same enter-
tainment and amenities that
able-bodied citizens often take
for granted.
New federal regulations will
improve access to many ven-
ues, inPennsylvania andacross
the country, that until nowhad
been off-limits for some dis-
abled Americans. The set of
rules, an extension of the 20-
year-old Americans with Dis-
abilities Act, will cover more
than 7 million places of public
accommodation.
They include recreational fa-
cilities such as amusement
parks, movie theaters, swim-
ming pools, parks and golf
courses. Disability rights advo-
cates welcome the changes on
behalf of people who use
wheelchairs or otherwise are
denied access to leisure activ-
ities.
Places that are subject to the
revised standards have until
March 2012 to comply. The
building industry has known
for years that the changes were
coming. Analysts say they pro-
vide architects with uniform
standards.
Accessible seating at a con-
cert or ballgame should not be
considered an unaffordable
luxury. Neither, surely, should
an accessible hotel room or
bathroom. The 50 million
Americans with disabilities de-
serve no less.

OTHER OPINION: IMPROVED ACCESS
Disabled deserve

L
ET’S PUT FORWARD
a simple analogy: If a
state lawmaker is the
rock star, then a com-
monwealth judge is more akin
to a record producer.
Rockstars seekpublicityand
dream up crazy ideas, while
the producers remain in the
background and say, “that
sounds nice,” or
“how much will this
cost,” or “that will
get you sued.”
Every effective
checks-and-balances
partnership relies on
everyone fulfilling
their role. That’s no
less true for state
government as it is
for a record compa-
ny.
So it’s a bit alarm-
ing when the chief
justice of a state Su-
preme Court turns
up in the news media, pleading
for moneyfor perhaps themost
important branch of govern-
ment.
Pennsylvania Chief Justice
Ronald D. Castille made the
rounds of budget-season ap-
propriations hearings Monday,
to remind the rock stars of
their role. “We’re a critical
functionof government andit’s
a duty of government to fund
us,” Castille said.
Under Gov. Tom Corbett’s
budget proposal, the state judi-
ciary is slated for $276 million.
By its ownaccounting, it needs
$348 million, leaving it with a
net deficit of $47.2 million, af-
ter accounting for fines and
other revenues.
Like most every corner of
government, the judiciary paid
little attentiontowaste preven-
tion while everyone rolled in
pre-recession revenues. But
Castille also noted the courts
latelyhaveinstitutedtheir own
austerity measures: Salary,
merit and COLA freezes for
rank-and-file employees; ban-
ning out-of-state
travel; filling
judge vacancies
with elections in-
stead of interim
appointments;
and reducing the
number of magist-
erial district judg-
es by 10 percent
through attrition.
The judiciary
plays a more im-
mediate role in
the lives of every-
day folks, for
whomdelayedjus-
tice amounts to denied justice.
It’s far more deservingof anop-
erational surplus than the Leg-
islature, which frequently
struggles for basic compe-
tence.
The good news is that justic-
es have an ability to force the
Legislature to its will. They
canissue a writ of mandamus –
literally “we command” – to
compel a lesser court, person,
public authorityor corporation
to fulfill their legal obligations.
They’ve made the threat be-
fore. This year they ought to
follow through if they cannot
get the money they need to ad-
minister justice.

“I don’t believe anyone can ef-
fectively argue that an activity
that draws a driver’s attention
away from the road substantially
increases the driver’s odds of be-
ing involved in a motor vehicle
accident,” Mullery said. “I don’t
need to review studies from Vir-
ginia Tech or Quinnipiac Univer-
electronic devices while driving.
“I believe it is a very dangerous
activity, which negatively im-
pacts and can endanger the well-
being of many people,” Toohil
said. “Distracted driving legisla-
tion (i.e. HB 896) can be much
more far reaching and includes
the carelessness and disregard
that a driver may have for oth-
ers.”
State Rep. Gerald Mullery, D-
Newport Township, said his col-
league Rep. Joseph F. Markosek,
D-Allegheny/Westmoreland, has
introduced legislation aimed at
reducing accidents causedby dis-
tracted and inexperienced driv-
ers.
Mullery said that under House
Bill 580, adult drivers would be
WILKES-BARRE – An amend-
ment to state House Bill 896 calls
for additional penalties for dis-
tracted drivers.
The bill was referred to the
House Committee on Transpor-
tation on March 2. It originally
addressed careless driving and
attached penalties for persons
found guilty of causing injury or
death of others at $250 to $500.
The amendment defines dis-
tracted driver as “having a per-
son’s attention diverted from op-
erating a vehicle by a radio, re-
cording/playback device, tele-
phone device, citizens band
radio, television, computer and
other device.”
The penalty for violation is a
$50 fine. Local state legislators
saidtheysupport enactinga state
lawand said there are several un-
der review in Harrisburg.
State Rep. Mike Carroll, D-
Avoca, said he is a co-sponsor of
bills to prohibit both texting
while driving and handheld cell
phone use while driving.
“As a member of the Transpor-
tation Committee, I expect legis-
lation to advance that deals with
these driving distractions, espe-
cially as they relate to younger
drivers,” he said.
State Rep. Tarah Toohil, R-But-
ler Township, said legislation is
needed to be “back on the table”
with regard to texting/using
sity to convince me of this fact.
That being said, the aforemen-
tioned studies confirm that the
risk of crash or near-crash dra-
matically increases if the driver is
distracted while utilizing a cell
phone.”
Mullery said he supports ban-
ning texting in moving vehicles
for drivers of all ages and cell
phone usage should be banned
for newly licensed teen drivers.
Astrong supporter of the effort
to ban the use of handheld cell
phones, and particularly texting,
while driving, Rep. Karen Bo-
back, R-Harveys Lake, said peo-
ple sharing public roadways with
other drivers should have their
full attention on the road.
“This session, we have not con-
sidered any legislation on the
floor that wouldaccomplishsuch
a ban, but there may be proposals
before the House Transportation
Committee,” Boback said. “I
would certainly be willing to con-
sider any measure that would in-
crease the safety of our roads and
highways.”
State Sen. John Yudichak, D-
Plymouth Township, is a co-
sponsor of two bills in the Senate
concerning the use of cell phones
while driving.
“I will continue to support bills
that advance a common sense ap-
proach for increased traffic safety
and the use of cell phones,” Yud-
ichak said.

record of reform,” said Haggerty,
citing his effort to pull Kingston
out of debt once he became may-
or andtoorganize Luzerne Coun-
ty into a government that will
make citizens accountable.
“That’s what distinguishes
me,” Haggerty said.
If elected, he said, he would
work hard as a judge to solve
cases before they went to trial to
save taxpayers money.
Haggerty also supports judges
having individual calendars,
where theyhandle a case frombe-
ginning to end, rather than hav-
ing a particular case bounce
around from judge to judge.
He says he believes cases don’t
go through the system quickly
enough because there are not
enough courtrooms being uti-
lized by judges.
He expects to spend about
$30,000 for the primaries, set for
May 17, he said, and will not ac-
cept contributions of more than
$500 from anyone.
“I’mnot a motivated-by-money
guy,” Haggerty said. “Big money
contributors are the problem.”
Haggerty has served in the
Pennsylvania Army National
Guard and U.S. Army Reserve.
From1986-88 he was stationed at
both Fort Bragg, N.C., and Fort
Knox, Ky., and he was a second
lieutenant and tank platoon lead-
er, 1st Battalion, 103rd Armor Re-
giment, from1987-90.
The mayor said he is a man
who “does a job that’s assigned to
him” andfeels he has stoodupfor

zerne County.

who thinks they were treated un-
fairly in Kingston,” Haggerty

ics maintenance facility the De-
partment of Defense has, em-
ploying more than 5,000 people,
most of themhailing fromLacka-
wanna, Luzerne, Monroe and
Wayne counties, according to de-
pot figures.
It’s also Northeastern Pennsyl-
vania’s largest employer, with to-
tal employment at about 5,800,
including tenant activities and
contractors.
But about seven years ago, the
wage system was changed in a
way that split how workers are
paid at the depot. Employees
known as “general schedule”
workers – “white collar” employ-
ees – were included in the more
generous New York labor market
scale, which provided higher pay
than previously.
But federal wage system work-
ers at Tobyhanna – “blue collar”
employees – were not paid under
the New York scale.
That result was a proportion-
ately lower wage scale for the
about 3,000 federal wage sched-
ule workers at Tobyhanna. Being
paid under the higher wage scale
would mean raises of anywhere
from about $4,000 to more than
$8,000.
Average salary for depot gener-
al schedule workers, including
professional personnel such as
engineers, accountants and su-
pervisory personnel, is $63,672,
according to the U.S. Office of
Personnel Management.
The average salary for depot
federal wage system workers, in-
cluding industrial-skilled trades
and supervisory personnel, is
$50,112, OPM said.
Done deal or just a plan
That change – and the accom-
panying raises – was supposed to
have been approved last fall. Dur-
ing the final days of his losing
campaign, former Rep. Paul Kan-
jorski, D-Nanticoke, announced
that federal officials had agreed
to fix the pay disparity.
That’s true, Casey said in a re-
lease this week. An entity called
the Federal Prevailing Rate Advi-
sory Committee recommended
changing the system to correct
the disparity, a change that also
would help some 15,000 other
federal employees facing similar
situations in 18 other states.
But theWhiteHouse’s Officeof
Personnel Management hasn’t
yet put the fairer scale into effect,
Casey said.
“Simply stated, OPM should
move forward without delay,”
Casey said in a letter sent Tues-
day to John Berry, director of the
Office of Personnel Manage-
ment. “The issue has been stud-
ied and the responsible oversight
body has made its decision —
these workers deserve equal
treatment.
The OPMreleaseda statement
Thursday saying the rate adviso-
ry committee decision is “only a
recommendation. To enable Di-
rector Berry to determine wheth-
er to adopt the recommendation,
OPM is considering the process
that would be needed to imple-
ment it, as well as its potential
impacts.”
Tensions among Depot staff
The issue is one that creates
tensions among the ranks of To-
byhanna workers, said Kathy Po-
well, first vice president of the
American Federation of Govern-
ment Employees, Local 1647,
which represents the general
schedule and federal wage scale
employees. Notingthat the feder-
al salary committee’s recommen-
dations are usually accepted, Po-
well said workers at Tobyhanna
are “wondering, why the delay?”
In addition to the letter, Casey
spoke to Berry this week about
the Tobyhanna pay issue. The
conversation was a “productive”
one, according to a Casey spokes-
man, who declined to provide de-
tails but said that Casey will be
following up in an attempt to re-
solve the situation once and for
all.
Meanwhile, Rep. Lou Barletta,
D-Hazleton, who defeated Kan-
jorski last fall, is looking into the
issue, as well, said Shawn Kelly,
Barletta’s spokesman.
“Lou understands there is an
imbalance that affects some of
the workers at the Tobyhanna Ar-
my Depot,” Kelly said. “Lou
knows the vital role the employ-
ees play in keeping our military
safe on the battlefield and around
the world, and he knows the vital
role Tobyhanna Army Depot
plays in the regional economy.”

sued, Drew McLaughlin, assist-
ant to Mayor Tom Leighton,
said the city police department
does not categorize traffic vio-
lations per specific offense.
“A citation for talking on the
cell phone, illegally turning on a
red light, or rolling through a
stop sign would all be categor-
ized the same,” McLaughlin
said.
Kane said that to her knowl-
edge there have not been any re-
ports of people getting seriously
hurt in the city in cell phone-
related accidents.
“But I have seen the national
statistics that show people are
getting hurt and killed because
of distracted drivers on cell
phones,” she said.
Kane said council will contin-
ue to apply pressure to state leg-
islators to pass a statewide law.
She said there are “many divid-
ed opinions” on how the law
should read, but she remains
hopeful an agreement will come
soon.
Rick Remington, spokesman
for AAA Mid-Atlantic, said Ted
Leonard, executive director of
the Pennsylvania AAA Federa-
tion in Harrisburg, told him
AAA supports House Bill 896,
sponsored by Rep Chris Ross, R-
Chester, in the current session.
Remington said Leonard is
scheduled to testify in support
of it at a House hearing in late
April.
Remington said cell phone
use/texting comes under the
umbrella of distracted driving.
He said AAA supports tougher
penalties for drivers who cause
crashes or traffic violations as a
result of distracted behavior
while driving.
“We support a comprehensive
approach based on sound re-
search and which includes a sig-
nificant education component,”
Remington said. “According to
the Governors’ Highway Safety
Association, 30 states (including
11 in 2010) enacted such bans.
New York, New Jersey and Dela-
ware have all banned texting;
Pennsylvania has yet to act. We
will continue to push for an out-
right ban during the current ses-
sion.”
AAA and Seventeen magazine
conducted a national study last
year regarding distracted driv-
ing among teens, including text-
ing and cell phone use. Other
distracting activities besides us-
ing a cell phone include eating
and drinking, talking to passen-
gers, grooming, reading (includ-
ing maps), using a PDA or navi-
gation system, watching a video,
and changing the radio station,
CD, or MP3 player.
Remington said AAA national-
ly has urged all states to ban text
messaging outright.
“We have worked with state
legislatures, including the Penn-
sylvania General Assembly, to
enact the necessary statutes,”
Remington said. “Research has
shown that the combination of
visual, cognitive and physical
distractions while text messag-
ing behind the wheel makes it an
inherently dangerous activity.”
Remington said eight states
ban all handheld cell phone use
by drivers, and 28 have enacted
such bans for novice drivers.
“Again, New York, New Jersey
and Delaware have each taken
this step; Pennsylvania has not,”
he said.
The AAA/Seventeen study re-
vealed that nearly nine in 10
teenage drivers (86 percent)
have driven while distracted,
even though 84 percent of teen
drivers know it’s dangerous.
“It’s proof that teen drivers
know it is risky business to text
while driving, but they still do
it,” the report stated. “However,
the overwhelming majority of
teen drivers engage in distracted
driving behaviors anyway.”
AAA President and CEO Rob-
ert L. Darbelnet said in the re-
port that traffic crashes are the
leading cause of death for teen
drivers.
“Because of their lack of driv-
ing experience and penchant to
take risks, it’s imperative that
teen drivers – like all drivers –
remain focused behind the
wheel at all times,” he said.

A small sign warns motorists about the Wilkes-Barre ordinance against using cell phones while
driving in the city.
Featured in the September 2010
issue of Seventeen magazine, the
results are based on a survey
conducted of nearly 2,000 male
and female teen drivers ages 16-19.
Seventeen magazine and AAA set
out to discover what risky behav-
iors teen drivers were engaging in
while behind the wheel – and how
they justify this dangerous behav-
ior.
Of the teen drivers surveyed:
• 73 percent have adjusted their
radio/CD/MP3 player.
• 61 percent have eaten food.
• 60 percent have talked on a cell
phone while driving.
The reasons teen drivers think it’s
fine to engage in these distrac-
tions are varied.
S U R V E Y R E S U LT S
What Is distracted driving? Ac-
cording to the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration,
there are three main types of
distraction:
• Visual — taking your eyes off the
road
• Manual — taking your hands off
the wheel
• Cognitive — taking your mind off
what you’re doing
The NHTSA defines distracted
driving as any activity a person
engages in that has the potential
to distract him or her from the
primary task of driving and in-
crease the risk of crashing. While
all distractions can endanger
drivers’ safety, the NHTSA says
texting is the most alarming be-
cause it involves all three types of
distraction.

H
e stood up from his seat and
started to stretch, the breakfast
room of a Tampa hotel serving
as his bullpen.
This is where Romulo Sanchez did
his most important work of this up-
coming baseball season.
Because by the time he was done
early Thursday afternoon, when those
“bullpen” doors opened, Sanchez
wasn’t just heading into a game this
time.
He was entering a whole new world.
It is one where a country is recover-
ing from calamity, where the native
language is much different from his,
where Sanchez will pitch at the end of
games, not the beginning.
But Sanchez believes he will get a
jumpstart, if not a new start, by playing
in Japan.
“Right now, at this point, it’s a great
opportunity,” his agent Jhosep Rojas
said.
The chance for Sanchez to chase
more money and a relief role in Japan
became reality Thursday when long-
time Japanese baseball scout Richard
Seko signed him to a one-year contract
with an option for a second season to
play for the Rakuten Golden Eagles.
That transaction came just down the
street from Steinbrenner Field, where
Sanchez spent the whole spring train-
ing with the New York Yankees fighting
to be part of their season opener
Thursday.
But the Yankees designated Sanchez
for assignment Wednesday, right after
he compiled a 3.86 ERA over seven
innings and picked up a save pitching
in games this spring. And a season
after he went 10-8 with nearly a strike-
out an inning for the Scranton/Wilkes-
Barre Yankees, between making a cou-
ple of relief appearances for parent
New York.
“I loved the (Scranton/Wilkes-Barre)
area,” Sanchez, a Venezuela native and
resident who speaks little English, said
through Rojas. “I loved the opportunity
the Yankees provided to me. I’m just
very proud the Yankees gave me a
chance to pitch.”
He will pitch for Rakuten in a clos-
er’s role, where the 26-year-old Sanchez
began his professional career before the
Pirates and Yankees began turning him
into a starter.
To get him started, Seko pulling out
a tape right at the hotel and measuring
the 6-foot-5, 270-pound Sanchez for
uniform size.
The right-hander seemed amused,
but knows this is a big task he’s under-
taking.
“(It’s) only for one year,” Sanchez
insisted, explaining through his agent
how pitching in Japan could help San-
chez grow into a major league-ready
pitcher in a couple of years.
He made that pitch to enter a new
culture while sitting right next to a
large sliding window, where everything
seemed ready to slide away outside.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s scheduled
workouts and game at the Yankees
minor league complex were washed
away by driving rains before they could
be blown away by a day-long series of
strong storms parading in off Florida’s
Gulf Coast.
Up on the hotel televisions, weather
forecasters were counting the number
of tornadoes touching down through
Tampa’s surrounding areas – two,
three, then maybe a fourth – while
showing the frightening strength of a
system that mangled power lines,
peeled rooftops and toppled tractor
trailers while leaving roadways re-
sembling canals.
The connection wasn’t lost on San-
chez, who was leaving those ominous
skies in Florida for a nation struggling
to recover from being battered by a
tsunami last month.
“Romulo is going in there with the
thought it’ll inspire support for the
Japanese people,” Rojas said. “He re-
leased a statement saying it will not be
long until we see them rise again. They
are a great nation.”
Japan has become a nation of hope
while trying to overcome difficult
struggles. For Sanchez, it is the place
to be to do some rebuilding.

STATE COLLEGE — Jerry Sandus-
ky, the former Penn State defensive co-
ordinator knownfor his charitable work
helping at-risk children, is being investi-
gated by a state grand jury on allega-
tions he indecently assaulted a teenage
boy, a newspaper reported.
Sandusky has not been charged. A
grand jury examines accusations to de-
termine if evidence
warrants filing charg-
es.
A message left by
The Associated Press
at a number listed for
Sandusky inState Col-
lege was not immedi-
ately returned. His
lawyer, Joseph Amendola, said in a
statement that Sandusky maintained
his innocence and was disappointed the
newspaper published a story “prior to
any determinationby the Attorney Gen-
eral’s Office that he did anything inap-
propriate at all.”
“While Jerry has been aware of an on-
going investigation by the Attorney
General’s Office for many months dat-
ing back to 2009, he has steadfastly
maintained his innocence throughout
this ordeal,” Amendola said.
The Patriot-News in Harrisburg re-
ported Thursday that it spoke to five
anonymous sources with knowledge of
the case who say a grand jury has been
meeting in Harrisburg for 18 months to
hear allegations made by a 15-year-old
boy in 2009.
The paper reported the teen told au-
thorities that there was inappropriate
contact over a four-year period.
Amendola said that should “the alle-
gations as set forthintoday’s newspaper
article eventually lead to the institution
of criminal charges against Jerry, Jerry
fully intends to establish his innocence
and put these false allegations to rest
forever.”
Sandusky retired after the 1999 sea-
sonafter 32years as anassistant toPenn
State football coach Joe Paterno. Once
considered a potential successor to Pa-
terno, Sandusky helped establish Penn
State’s “Linebacker U” reputation and
drewup the defenses for the Nittany Li-
ons’ national-title teams in 1982 and
1986.
Sandusky, 67, also has been lauded

HOUSTON — VCU arrived at the Fi-
nal Four with its team, its bandwagon
and its T-shirt. “There goes my bracket,”
it says — an oh-so-fitting statement
printed in gold letters and sandwiched
between the school logo and the picture
of a crumpled-up piece of paper.
Indeed, almost anyone who wins an
office pool this year will limp home to
their victory. Hardly
anyone saw this
coming.
But for VCU, But-
ler, Connecticut and
Kentucky, all of
whom got their first
look at the court
tucked inside of Re-
liant Stadium on
Thursday, this is a
time to act like they
expected it all along,
to focus on winning
a national championship that hardly
seemed likely when the first ball was
tipped back in October.
Back then, VCUwas listed as a 5,000-1
longshot in Vegas.
Butler was figuring out howto replace
NBA-bound forward Gordon Hayward
and dream up a second act after almost
winning it all last year, only six miles
from its tiny campus in Indianapolis.
Connecticut was picked 10th in the
Big East.
Kentucky was gearing up for a transi-
tion year after losing five key players to
the NBA and freshman Enes Kanter to
eligibility issues while awaiting a killer
recruiting class for 2011-12.
“I never thought we’d be sitting here,”
Butler coach Brad Stevens said when
asked what he thought of his team’s pro-
spects in February, when the Bulldogs
were 14-9 with a three-game losing
streak. “But the season starts in October
and it goes until at least March 1. You’re
supposed to get better. It’s hard. But if
youhave guys willingtoworkthroughit,
it can happen.”
In the first semifinal Saturday, eighth-
seeded Butler (27-9) will play 11th-seed-
ed VCU (23-11), in a matchup of under-
dog mid-majors that some might consid-

MAJOR L EAGUE BASEBAL L
THURSDAY’ S SCORES
NEW YORK — A healthy Curtis
Granderson helped give the storied
New York Yankees their earliest
home win ever.
Granderson hit a go-ahead homer
leading off the seventh inning and
Mark Teixeira had a three-run shot
off Justin Verlander, lifting NewYork
over the Detroit Tigers 6-3 Thursday
in the first March opener in the
Bronx.
“It was great — except for the
weather,” said Granderson, who ar-
rived in New York around 11 p.m.
Wednesday after playing in a rehabil-
itation game with minor leaguers in
Tampa, Fla., earlier in the day.
CCSabathia pitched six workman-
like innings, Derek Jeter added a sac-
rifice fly in the seventh using his new
stride-less swing and Mariano Riv-
era, wearing his socks high for per-
haps the first time, earned his first
save and 560th of his career.
Newcomers Russell Martin and
Rafael Soriano did their part as the
Yankees got off to a quick start on a
gray, blustery, 42-degree day.
“Their bullpen and the long ball is
what didus intoday,” Detroit manag-
er JimLeylandsaid. “I thought it was
actually a decent game for the condi-
tions. It was pretty rough.”
Sidelined with a strained side
since March 22, Granderson made
two spectacular catches against his
former team and homered for the
third straight opener —off a lefty, no
less. He connected against former
Yankee Phil Coke (0-1) as New York
embarkedonits first full seasonwith-
out George Steinbrenner as owner
since 1973.
“He played a good game for being

for his work with The Second

founded in 1977 to help at-risk
children.
He retired from the board of
the charity in September, and ex-
ecutive vice president Katherine
Genovese said then that he had
beendialingbackduties inrecent
years and was looking to spend
more time with family and deal
with his personal life.
Paterno and Penn State athlet-
ic director Tim Curley were
among those who appeared be-
fore the grandjury inJanuary, the
Patriot-News reported.
A spokesman for the athletic
department declined to com-
ment Thursday on behalf of ath-
letics andPaterno. Lisa Powers, a
spokeswoman for the university,
also declined to comment.
The allegations surfaced in
2009 while Sandusky was a vol-
unteer assistant high school foot-
ball coach at Central Mountain
High School in Clinton County,
the Patriot-News reported. John
DiNunzio, interim superintend-
ent of the Keystone Central
School District at the time, said
the boy’s mother reported an in-
cident to the principal and head
football coach.
According to the newspaper,
DiNunzio, now interim superin-
tendent at the Bellefonte school
district, was told by the coach
andprincipal that the boy alleged
contact occurred while he and
Sandusky were alone in the room
on wrestling mats.
The report was passed on to
Clinton County Children and
Youth Services. The newspaper,
citing anonymous sources, re-
ported the boy told that depart-
ment that there had been inde-
cent contact several times over
four years.
The case was forwarded to the
Clinton County district attorney,
whothenforwardedit tohis then-
counterpart in Centre County,
Michael Madeira, because the in-
cidents whereallegedtohavetak-
en place in Centre County. Ma-
deira then referred the case to
then-Attorney General Tom Cor-
bett’s office in March 2009.
DiNunzio told the Patriot-
News he never heard frompolice
“onceit left his desk.” KellyHasti-
ngs, current superintendent of
Keystone Central School Dis-
trict, told the newspaper said she
has direct knowledge of the re-
port and that documents from
the school have not been subpoe-
naed.
The newspaper also reported
that state police in Centre Coun-
ty two months ago began calling
witnesses toaMay1998report by
Penn State police detailing an
earlier allegation of inappropri-
ate contact against Sandusky by
another boy. No charges were ev-
er filed against Sandusky.
In a separate story Thursday,
Patriot-News editor David Ne-
whouse said the newspaper con-
tacted the attorney general’s of-
fice with details of the story, to
ask if the newspaper was wrong
and to ask if their report would
harm the investigation. Ne-
whouse said the newspaper
would not have reported the sto-
ry if it were told “yes,” and that
the attorney general’s office de-
clined to speak with the paper.
Newhouse wrote that, in re-
sponse to a question from one of
Sandusky’s friends, the paper
would report with equal veracity
if charges are never brought and
the inquiry dismissed.
“We would owe that to Coach
Sandusky, Penn State, The Sec-
ond Mile and all who have ad-
mired his life and work,” Ne-
whouse wrote.
Responding to the Patriot-
News story, Second Mile presi-
dent Jack Raykovitz said in a
statement the organization was
“shaken by the article.”
“While The Second Mile is ref-
erenced in the Patriot News arti-
cle, we have been advised that
neither The Second Mile nor our
programs are the subject of any
investigation,” Raykovitz said.
“Out of respect for all parties, we
cannot discuss, speculate, or
comment further.”
Raykovitz said the organiza-
tion was committed “first and
foremost to the safety and well-
being of the children we serve.
We have zero tolerance for abuse.
... Throughout our history, there
have never been allegations
made with regard to misconduct
occurring during any Second
Mile program.”

WASHINGTON—Welcome
back, Chipper. Nice way to start,
Fredi.
Returning frommajor knee
surgery, Chipper Jones doubled
before scoring the 2011season’s
first run on a chilly, damp open-
ing day, and Derek Lowe allowed
three singles in 5 2-3 innings,
helping the Braves beat the
Washington Nationals 2-0 Thurs-
day to make Fredi Gonzalez a
winner in his debut as Atlanta’s
manager.
The Braves played their first
regular-season game since Bob-
by Cox retired at the end of 2010
after two decades —and15
playoff appearances —as their
skipper. With his sinker in fine,
darting form, Lowe (1-0) struck
out six and walked two.
Dodgers 2, Giants1
LOS ANGELES —Clayton
Kershawstruck out nine in sev-
en dominant innings and Matt
Kemp scored the go-ahead run
on a throwing error by catcher
Buster Posey in the sixth, send-
ing the Los Angeles Dodgers to a
victory over the defending World
Series champion San Francisco
Giants in their season opener.
Kershaw(1-0) allowed four
hits and walked one in his first
opening-day start. The 23-year-
old left-hander struck out three
of the four batters he faced in the
first, giving him500 strikeouts
in his career.
Reds 7, Brewers 6
CINCINNATI —Ramon Her-
nandez hit a two-out, three-run
homer in the bottomof the ninth
inning, rallying the Cincinnati
Reds to a victory over the Mil-
waukee Brewers in an opening-
day flashback to their NL Cen-
tral title season.
The Brewers became the first
teamin 42 years to open the
season with back-to-back home-
rs when Rickie Weeks and Carlos
Gomez connected off Edinson
Volquez. Ryan Braun also had a
solo shot, helping Milwaukee
take a 6-3 lead to the ninth.
Padres 5, Cardinals 3
ST. LOUIS —Cameron May-
bin tied it with a two-out homer
in the ninth inning and ground-
ed a single that led to the go-
ahead run in the 11th as the San
Diego Padres opened with a win
over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Cardinals star Albert Pujols
had an awful start to what could
be his 11th and final season in St.
Louis. He grounded into a ca-
reer-worst double plays while
going 0 for 5. The three-time NL
MVP cut off contract negotia-
tions at the start of spring train-
ing and could be a free agent this
fall.
AMERICANLEAGUE
Angels 4, Royals 2
KANSAS CITY, Mo. —Torii
Hunter and Jeff Mathis home-
red, helping Jered Weaver and
the Los Angeles Angels beat the
Kansas City Royals in a chilly
season opener.
Weaver allowed two harmless
singles to Melky Cabrera over 6
1-3 innings, improving to 3-0 in
his last four starts against Kan-
sas City. The 2010 major league
strikeout leader fanned six and
walked two as the Angels won
their opener for the seventh time
in the last eight years.

The Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA—For Roy
Halladay, opening day means
it’s just one day closer to the
postseason.
Halladay and the rest of the
Philadelphia Phillies are ready
to get the most anticipatedsea-
son in franchise history start-
ed. Expectations are high this
year. So high, in fact, that any-
thing less than a World Series
title won’t be considered a suc-
cess.
But the Phillies have to play
162 games first, starting with
today’s opener against the
Houston Astros.
“I think we’re all anxious,
more so to get back to the post-
season,” Halladay said. “That
being the goal and having an-
other quality team to put on
the field, I think we’re all anx-
ious. Opening day is just the
start of it.”
Thefour-timeNLEast cham-
pions became instant favorites
to win their second World Se-
ries in four years after signing
Cliff Lee to a $120 million, five-
year deal. The addition of Lee
to go along with Halladay, Roy
Oswalt and Cole Hamels gives
the Phillies a starting rotation
that’s the envy of baseball.
Injuries to five-time All-Star
Chase Utley and closer Brad
Lidge have brought Philadel-
phia back closer to the pack.
Still, the Phillies won’t be satis-
fied unless they are riding
down Broad Street for a cham-
pionship parade in October.
“Crazy things happen in
baseball. It obviously takes a
lot, and just because you have
certainnames onpaper doesn’t
guarantee anything,” Halladay
said. “We’re very well aware of
that. If we all go out and do our
jobs the way we’re supposed to
and we’re able to stay healthy,
then we like our chances. But
we all know what we’re up
against. I don’t think teams are
going to go running from us
just because of the guys that we
have on our roster.”
Halladay,
Phillies
think big

SAN FRANCISCO — Barry
Bonds’ former personal shop-
per has testified that she saw
the slugger’s private trainer in-
ject Bonds in the navel before a
road trip during the 2002 sea-
son.
Kathy Hoskins said Thurs-
dayshe was inBonds’ bedroom
packing his clothes for the trip
when the seven-time NL MVP
and trainer Greg Anderson
came into the room. Anderson
expressed concerns about her
presence but Bonds said not to
worry about Hoskins because
“she’s my girl.”
Hoskins testified that she
then watched Anderson inject
Bonds. She said didn’t ask
about the injection, but Bonds
volunteered that it was “a little
something, something for
when I go on the road. You
can’t detect it.”
Bonds is charged with lying
to a federal grand jury when he
said no one other than his doc-
tor ever injected him with any-
thing. The owner of Major
League Baseball’s records for
home runs in a career and a
season also is accused of lying
when he said that he never
knowingly used performance-
enhancing drugs.
Hoskins testifiedafter prose-
cutors called Barry Bonds’ or-
thopedic surgeon to the wit-
ness stand —a move they may
wind up regretting.
Dr. Arthur Ting contradict-
edthetestimonyof a keyprose-
cution witness, former Bonds
business partner Steve Hos-
kins, who is the brother of
Kathy Hoskins. Their dad
played for the San Francisco
49ers and was a friend of Barry
Bonds’ baseball star father,
Bobby Bonds.

er more fitting for the Maui Invi-
tational than a Final Four brack-
et.
In the second game, it’s No. 3
Connecticut (30-9) vs. No. 4
Kentucky (29-8) in the rematch
of a game that really was on the
schedule in Maui. UConn won
84-67 back on Nov. 24. A trip to
Houston wasn’t on anyone’s
mind back then.
“That game showed what we
could be and certainly what
John needed to fix,” UConn
coach Jim Calhoun said of Ken-
tucky’s John Calipari. “It turned
out, I needed to fix some things,
too, but it was later because the
problems showed up in the Big
East.”
All these teams had problems
during big portions of this sea-
son. All got better and started
peakingaroundthebeginningof
March. That has culminated in
probably the most inconceiva-
ble foursome inFinal Four histo-
ry —not a single No. 1or 2 seed
for the first time ever, and a
group of teams chosen by a
grandtotal of threepeopleout of
more than 8 million entrants in
bracket contests run by ESPN
and Yahoo.
“At first, it was the selection
and how we shouldn’t be in the
tournament,” VCU point guard
Joey Rodriguez said. “Then it
became, we can’t do this in this
game, we won’t be able to do
that in that game. We keep prov-
ing people wrong, and now,
we’re here.”
Like so many players from
schools in smaller conferences,
the VCU group remembers
watching last year’s Duke-But-
ler final, seeing the Bulldogs fall
a bounce short of the champion-
ship and thinking, sure, that
could be them. Sort of the same
way people dream about win-
ning the lottery.
Led by 33-year-old coach Sha-
ka Smart, the Rams went only
12-6 and finished fourth in the
Colonial Athletic Association.
Theywoundupas oneof thelast
teams placed in the tournament
bracket. They took immense
flak from Jay Bilas, Dick Vitale
anda whole group inthe bracke-
tologyset whocalledVCUunde-
serving when its name showed
up and teams such as Colorado
and Virginia Tech were left out.
The Rams answered by winning
five games on their road to the
Final Four by an average of 12
points.
Now, they’re celebrities,
across the nation and around
their own campus — located in
Richmond, Va., with enrollment
of 32,000, about the same size as
George Mason, the Virginia
school that also made the Final
Four as an11seed back in 2006.
“I went to the bookstore the
day the Final Four T-shirts came
out, and that was a mistake,”
VCU guard Bradford Burgess
said. “People were taking pic-
tures, giving me hugs, signing
autographs. It took me an hour
and a half to get out.”
On the blue blood side of the
bracket, UConn will face Ken-
tucky in a matchup of a No. 3
seed vs. a No. 4.
Granted, these weren’t im-
plausible picks by any means,
thoughKentucky fans hadevery
reason to believe it would be an-
other year. They lost five players
to the NBA draft after last sea-
son, including the No. 1 pick,
John Wall. Meanwhile, they’ve
got a virtual roster of McDo-
nald’s All-Americans signed and
ready to show up in Lexington
next fall.
Calipari figured out his team
and got it revved up at precisely
the right time. Led by freshmen
Brandon Knight (East region
most outstanding player) and
senior Josh Harrellson (14.8
points and 9 rebounds a game in
the tournament), the Wildcats
returnedtotheFinal Fourforthe
first time since they last won it
all, in1998.
“This team went from me
draggingthemtothemdragging
me,” Calipari said. “They be-
came empowered, and that’s
whentheybecamespecial. They
knowit now. They get it.”
TheHuskies area youngteam
led by junior Kemba Walker, a
guard from the Bronx who has
added a nice mid-range and 3-
point-shooting game to his rep-
ertoire and has averaged 26
pointsagamesinceUConnwent

in a situation not knowing he
wouldbe here today,” Jeter said.
Withtheflags abovethelights
in right field whipping toward
the foul pole, Teixeira connect-
ed off Verlander in the third in-
ning. Normally a .235 hitter in
the first month of the season,
the first baseman didn’t get his
first hit last season until his fifth
game.
“I’ve been petitioning the
league to start in March for
years. “Finallytheylet us start in
March because everybody
knows my Aprils,” Teixeira said.
“It’s great to start this way. ...
Last year was awful, it was em-
barrassing.”
Slimmed down by 25 pounds
andhealthy after havingsurgery
on his right knee this winter, Sa-
bathia gave up six hits and three
runs — two earned. Starting on
opening day in each of his three
seasons with NewYork, Sabath-
ia struck out seven and walked
two.
Joba Chamberlain, Soriano,
the AL saves leader for Tampa
Baylast year, andRivera pitched
perfect innings and the Yankees
retiredthe last 10overall. Cham-
berlain (1-0) got the win.
“That’s the way we drew it
up,” Yankees manager Joe Girar-
di said with a smile.
Verlander was making his
fourth straight opening day
start, most for the Tigers since
Jack Morris went 10 ina row. He
was hoping to get off to a quick
start tohis seasonafter going1-2
with a 5.29 ERA last year in
April before finishing 18-9, and
he alteredhis offseasonworkout
to help accomplish that.
“Obviously, coming out of the
spring that I had, this is not the
results that I wanted,” said Ver-
lander, who had a 0.96 ERAthis
spring.
Pitching in shirt sleeves, the
right-hander reached 97 mph on
the radar gun in the first, but
walked Teixeira and Alex Rodri-
guez before striking out Robin-
son Cano with his 31st pitch of
the inning.
Verlander gave up just two
other hits, including Rodri-
guez’s one-out double in the
sixth that hit the fence in right-
center just above the 385-foot
marker. He walked Cano, but
struck out Nick Swisher and
Jorge Posada with two decep-
tive changeups, one 85 mph, the
other 86.
Jhonny Peralta drove in his
first run of the month. After go-
ing without an RBI in 66 spring
at-bats, he hit a sacrifice fly to
center in his first plate appear-
ance to give Detroit the lead in
the second inning.
Miguel Cabrera lined a single
to left and, in his first at-bat with
Detroit, Victor Martinez hit a
hot shot to shortstop that Jeter,
making a half-dive to his left
couldn’t corral, for abasehit. Sa-
bathia walked the bases loaded
before Peralta flied to Grander-
son.
Detroit closed it to 3-2 on
BrandonInge’s two-out single in
the fourth, and tied it on Cabre-
ra’s sacrifice fly in the fifth with
help from Cano’s error on
Rhymes’ sacrifice attempt. Cov-
eringfirst, Canoclosedhis glove
before Teixeira’s toss arrived
and the ball fell to the field.
Swisher had an RBI single in
the eighth.
Granderson right away tested
the injured side, diving on the
slickturf tomake a catchonWill
Rhymes’ sinking liner in the
first. Granderson came up smil-
ing and holding up his glove. He
also made a running over-the-
shoulder catch in the ninth.

seven batters in the outing
while also scoring the only run
of the game on a single by Kyle

In the second game, a 6-5

HUMBLE, Texas — Jimmy
Walker tied the course record
with a 9-under 63 on Thursday
to take a two-shot lead over
Josh Teater and Nick O’Hern
after the first round of the
Houston Open.
Walker matched the record
set by Johnson Wagner and
Adam Scott in the first round
of the 2008 tournament. Wagn-
er went on to win that year.
Chris Kirk was three back
after a 66, and Steve Stricker,
John Rollins, Nathan Green
and Brendan Steele shot 67s
and were four behind.
Most of the big-name players
were in the hunt, as they fine-
tune their games for next
week’s Masters.
Lee Westwood and Padraig
Harrington were in the large
pack of players at 4 under, Phil
Mickelson and Retief Goosen
were at 2
under and
former Mas-
ters cham-
pions Angel
Cabrera and
Fred Couples
were 1 under.
Calm condi-
tions yielded low scores all day
at the Tournament Course at
Redstone. A total of 32 players
broke 70 and 87 players shot
even-par (72) or better.
Walker needed only 23 putts,
the fewest of any player in the
first round, to make up for
several erratic tee shots.
“I’m not going to say like,
’Oh, every time I hit the green,
this one is going in,”’ Walker
said. “I just kept stroking it. I
felt like I kind of got back to
feeling that stroke that I was
using earlier in the year, when
I was putting so good and
playing so good.”
Walker changed putters at
the start of the season, and he’s
made six cuts in eight starts
and already has three top-10
finishes this year. His round
Thursday matched the lowest
of his career.
“When you putt well,” he
said, “it cures a lot of ills, for
sure.”
Like Walker, Teater and
Rollins also need victories to
earn invitations to Augusta
next week. And as long as
they’re in town, they’re both
hoping to see their favorite
college basketball teams take
home a trophy, too.
Teater is a die-hard Kentucky
fan and Rollins is the only VCU
graduate on the PGA Tour.
Both have tickets to Saturday’s
Final Four games — Butler-
VCU and Connecticut-Kentucky
— at Reliant Stadium, about
25 miles from the course.
And both are hoping they
have a tough decision to make
on Monday — fly to Augusta
to get ready for the Masters or
stay in Houston an extra day to
see their team play for a na-
tional championship.
“I don’t want to cross a
bridge that I haven’t gotten to,”
Teater said. “If it comes to
that, I’ll probably stay for the
game. But Monday night, it
would be nice to be there,
celebrating with everybody
else.”
Teater wore a blue shirt and
a white belt with a “UK” logo

round. He went to Morehead

rooting for the Wildcats.
Kraft Nabisco Championship
RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. —
Brittany Lincicome and Stacy
Lewis overcame the stifling
desert heat for 6-under 66s
Thursday, taking the first-round
lead at the Kraft Nabisco
Championship.
Sandra Gal and Mika Miya-
zato were one shot back at the
LPGA Tour’s first major of the
year.
Lincicome is the 2009 Kraft
Nabisco champion, while Lewis
is still looking for her first
LPGA Tour victory. They
sometimes room together on
the road, and they went to
dinner together Wednesday
night before making identically
excellent starts at Mission
Hills.
Temperatures topped 90
degrees by midday in the Palm
Springs area, and caddies were
given permission to take off
their jumpsuits when it rose
above 100 during the afternoon
rounds.

NEW YORK — The only
shocker about the end to Wichita
State’s season was the location.
J.T. Durley and Graham Hatch
scored 12 points each to lead a
balanced offense, and the Shock-
ers overwhelmedtop-seededAla-
bama 66-57 on Thursday night to
win the NIT championship at
Madison Square Garden.
Hatch was 4 for 4 from beyond
the arc, including back-to-back
baskets inthe closing minutes, as
Wichita State (29-8) finishedupa
remarkable postseason run in
style.
After getting left out of the
NCAA tournament — and after
hardly any critics argued on their
behalf — the Shockers left little
doubt they should have been se-
lected. They beat Nebraska by 27
points, wonat Virginia Tech, beat
College of Charleston, then set a
school recordfor wins ina season
with a 75-44 romp over Washing-
ton State in the semifinals.
They added one more victory
against the Crimson Tide.
Tony Mitchell had 13 points
and12 rebounds to lead Alabama
(25-12), which lost for the second
time in two trips to the NIT title
game. Leading scorer JaMychal
Greenstruggledwithfoul trouble
and finished with 12 points, and
Trevor Releford and Charvez Da-
vis had 10 each.
Alabama briefly pulled ahead
in the second half on a free throw
by Chris Hines with 15:06 left,
but Wichita State answered with
eight straight points to regain
control.
The lead never fell below five
the rest of the way.

Chen Humanik Jaffin Hromisin McDonald Sheptock Spagnola
with some of the top players in
the WVC.
DIVISIONAL ALIGNMENT
The WVC once again realign-
ed its divisions using a power
structure format. Abington
Heights and Wallenpaupack
elected to depart the WVC after
the 2010 spring season, moving
to the Lackawanna Conference
in this past fall in anticipation of
the PIAA shift.
What’s left are 20 teams
grouped into the following four
divisions:
Division 1-A: Berwick, Cough-
lin, Crestwood, Dallas and Holy
Redeemer.
Division 1-B: Delaware Valley,
Hazleton Area, Lake-Lehman,
Nanticoke and Wyoming Valley
West.
Division 2-A: Hanover Area,
Honesdale, North Pocono, Pitt-
ston Area and Wyoming Semi-
nary.
Division 2-B: GAR, MMI Prep,
Meyers, Tunkhannock and
One of the best things about
Wyoming Valley Conference
girls soccer is no matter how
miserable the weather is at the
start of the season – and it has
been thus far – it’s bound to be
quite comfortable by the end.
That will definitely change in
less than two years.
The WVC started its season
Monday, a season that will be
the next-to-last in the spring.
Come fall 2012, all WVC girls
soccer teams will be required to
shift to the fall as mandated by
the PIAA.
So that means WVC girls
soccer teams will end their
season in May or June 2012,
take a couple months off and
then prepare to play in Septem-
ber 2012.
That’s still a ways away. There
are some changes taking effect
immediately that will alter the
landscape of girls soccer.
Here are some of them along
Wyoming Area.
Teams will play divisional
opponents twice and cross over
and play teams within its divi-
sion once. In other words, Divi-
sion 1-A teams play each other
twice and Division 1-B teams
once.
That will give all teams 13-
game regular seasons.
DISTRICT PLAYOFF FORMAT
The top four teams from
Division 1-A, the top two from
Division 1-B and Division 2-A
and the top team from Division
2-B make the playoffs.
The 10th and final playoff spot
goes to the winner of a district
qualifier between the Division
1-A fifth-place team and the
Division 1-B third-place team.
STATE PLAYOFFS
The PIAA eliminated separate
state playoffs for Class 3A and
2A. All 180 girls soccer teams
playing in the spring are now
lumped into one classification,
as it was prior to the 2007 sea-
son.
District 2 will get only one
state qualifier in the 16-team
state tournament. District 3
gets the most – nine – because
it has 98 teams playing in the
spring. District 2 has 20.
District 11 gets three teams,
District 12 gets two and District
1 gets one.
The state playoffs are set to
begin May 31.
NEWPLACES, NEWFACES
A few teams have changed
their home fields.
Berwick: The Dawgs are now
playing home games at Crispin
Field, home of the football team.
Honesdale: The Hornets have
moved from Lakeside Elemen-
tary to Stourbridge Primary
Center. It’s off the same road
Lakeside Elementary is on.
North Pocono: The Trojans
won’t be playing at Moscow
Elementary School. Their new
field is at the new high school in
Covington Township.
Wyoming Seminary: The Blue
Knights will alternate between
the Forty Fort soccer fields and
the Payne-Pettibone field in
Wyoming depending on field
condition.
Fort Fort – aka The Cabbage
Patch – is on Route 11 and
where the Blue Knights played
last season. Payne-Pettibone is
located off Schulde Lane, which
is off Route 11 across from the
Wyoming Monument.
Check the school’s website to
see where Seminary is playing.
The two fields are less than a
mile apart on sides of the Mid-
way Shopping Center, so no one
will be inconvenienced by going
to the wrong field.
As for coaches, there have
been only two changes.
Stephanie Frank, who played
for Lake-Lehman in the early
2000s, takes over at GAR. For-
mer Tunkhannock assistant
Kaaron Swanson is now the
head coach of the Tigers.
TOP PLAYERS
It’s tough to single out specif-
ic players, so here are the ones
who made The Times Leader
All-WVC team last year as un-
derclassmen.
Sherry Chen, Wyoming Valley
West: Quickness and pursuit
ability make her a top-notch
defender.
Lindsey Humanik, Coughlin:
Plays a big role defensively, but
can also counterattack.
Kelcie Hromisin, Wyoming
Valley West: Very quick forward
who will lead the attack.
Isabella Jaffin, Berwick: Pe-
rennial all-star who has been the
heart and soul of the offense.
Colleen McDonald, Dallas:
Arguably the most complete
player in the WVC.
Kelly Sheptock, Berwick:
Made an impression last season
on defense as a freshman.
Olivia Spagnola, Coughlin: A
midfielder who shines on both
offense and defense.
Changes are afoot as season kicks off

Teams are listed in predicted order
of finish.
DIVISION1-A
1. Dallas
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 13-1 Div.
A, 1st
2010 postseason: D2-2A cham-
pion; lost 3-2 to Trinity in second
round of state playoffs.
Coach: Chris Scharff
Home field: School district campus
Players to watch: Seniors – Megh-
an Gallis, FB; Sara Kneal, FB; De-
metra Szatkowski, FB. Juniors –
Kassondra Michno, FB; Colleen
McDonald, MF/F; Sabrina Zurek, MF.
Sophomores – Ashley Dunbar, F;
Wendy Greenwood, MF; Amber
Yang, K.
Outlook: The Mountaineers will
certainly miss Times Leader Player
of the Year Ellen Arnaud and divi-
sional MVP Tara Connors, but don’t
write them off. There is plenty of
talent returning led by McDonald,
who is arguably the best all-around
player in the WVC. Szatkowski is
also one of the WVC’s best defend-
ers, and Gallis was a first-team
all-star last season. The pieces are
in place for another divisional title
and another District 2 champion-
ship as well.
2. Coughlin 2010 WVC Record/
Finish: 10-3-1 Div. A, tied 2nd
2010 postseason: D2-2A runner-
up; lost 2-0 to Donegal in first
round of state playoffs.
Coach: Joe Spagnuolo
Home field: Dan Flood School
Players to watch: Seniors – Crystal
Chudoba, Kristi Gabriele, Nour
Hasan, Brittany Kulesza, Korey
Patrizi, Jenna Silliboy, Alexis Spag-
nola, Olivia Spagnola. Juniors –
Grace Fazzi, Lindsey Humanik,
Marissa Lecara, Bailey Novak, Ivy
Nulton, Amanda Sax.
Outlook: The Crusaders have
arguably the best blend of talent
and experience in the WVC, and
that could lead to the division and
district titles. Humanik and Olivia
Spagnola were all-WVC last season
and first-team all-stars along with
Hasan. Nulton, Patrizi, Alexis Spag-
nola and Sax were second-team
stars. The Crusaders lost a few
players to graduation, but have
enough depth to fill those holes.
3. Berwick
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 9-3-2
Div. A, 4th
2010 postseason: Lost 3-1 to
Coughlin in D2-2A semifinals.
Coach: Paul DiPippa
Home field: Crispin Field
Players to watch: Seniors – Bella
Jaffin, F; Olivia Jaffin, FB. Juniors –
Abby Takacs, MF; Jade Welsh, F;
Sarah Wilczynski, K. Sophomores –
Caty Davenport, MF; Bridget Orlan-
do, FB; Kelly Sheptock, FB.
Outlook: Berwick has eight start-
ers back and should be right in the
battle with Coughlin and Dallas for
the division and top seed in dis-
tricts. Jaffin was all-WVC once
again and Sheptock was the only
freshman to get the honor last
season. Orlando and Welsh earned
second-team divisional honors.
Best part of the eight returning
starters is they are spread
throughout the field, giving Ber-
wick no weak spot to exploit.
4. Holy Redeemer
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 5-9 Div.
A, 5th
2010 postseason: Lost 1-0 to
Lake-Lehman in D2-2A quarterfi-
nals.
State classification: 2A
Coach: Bob Hughes
Home field: Eddie White Field
Players to watch: Seniors – Allison
Capaci, FB; Beth Kolodziej, K; Alex-
andra Marriggi, FB; Danielle Phil-
lips, F: Deena Prescavage, FB; Kiera
Stachowiak, MF. Juniors – Shaina
Dougherty, F; Alexa Kalaft, K; Erin
Gruber, MF; Hallie Rexer, MF. Fresh-
man – Nina Paoloni, FB.
Outlook: Redeemer could be one
team that makes significant im-
provement this season. Capaci was
a first-team all-star last season,
while Mariggi and Rexer, who has
verbally committed to St. Francis,
made the second team. To take the
next step, the Royals need to get
more scoring against the upper
tier teams. The defense should be
solid.
5. Crestwood
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 4-10 Div.
A, 6th
2010 postseason: Lost 6-0 to
Berwick in D2-2A semifinals.
Coach: Pasquale Calabrese
Home field: Football stadium
Players to watch: Seniors – Mar-
ianna Hererra, MF; Amanda Lee,
FB; Samantha Pruce, FB. Juniors –
Sarah Andrews, MF; Hannah Coffin,
F. Sophomore – Emily Orrson, MF.
Freshman – Gabby Termini, MF/F.
Outlook: Crestwood is a team to
watch as the season progresses.
The Comets have some experience
back, but will be relying heavily on
underclassmen that includes a
promising group of freshmen. The
core will form around Herrera, a
first-team all-star last year, and
Andrews and Lee, who were sec-
ond-team selections. The Comets
probably won’t make a run at the
division, but could pull off a couple
surprises late in the season.
DIVISION1-B
1. Lake-Lehman
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 8-0-4
Div. B, 2nd
2010 postseason: Lost 3-1 to Dal-
las in D2-2A semifinals.
Home field: Football stadium
Coach: Kelly Spencer Adamshick
Players to watch: Seniors – Sarah
Bray, F; Cassi Cragle, M; Alexa
Decker, FB; Kriisty Komrowski, FB;
Jenn O’Brien, FB. Junior – Nikki
Sutliff, MF. Sophomores – Ashley
Jackson, K; Karen Yamrick, FB.
Freshmen – Kaylee Hillard, MF;
Shoshana Mahoney, F; Emily Sut-
ton, MF.
Outlook: Lehman could look differ-
ent this season. The Black Knights
were known for their defense in
recent years, but Spencer expects
the offense to be much better.
Bray, a second-team all-star last
season, is the top offensive threat
back. There is also experience at
midfield and defense, although
losing keeper Becca Stull, one of
the best ever to play the position in
the WVC, will be a big void to fill.
2. Wyoming Valley West
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 8-4 Div.
B, 3rd
2010 postseason: Lost 4-0 to
Abington Heights in D2-3A semi-
finals.
Coach: Mike Davitt
Home field: Spartan Stadium
Players to watch: Seniors – Sherry
Chen, FB; Kelsey Keefer, MF; Ka-
leigh Reynolds, MF. Juniors – Kelcie
Hromisin, F; Carrie Sedeski, MF.
Outlook: The Spartans are a legiti-
mate contender for the division
title. Chen and Hromisin were
All-WVC selections last season.
Chen is a quick-footed defender,
while Hromisin is a playmaker who
makes the offense go. Keefer
earned first-team honors and will
be a factor at midfield. There are a
few holes to fill – goalkeeping
perhaps the biggest – but there is
plenty of talent to choose from.
3. Delaware Valley
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 10-0-2
Div. B, 1st
2010 postseason: Lost 1-0 to
Hazleton Area in D2-3A semifinals.
Coach: Donnel Leiva-Vazquez
Home field: High school
Players to watch: Seniors – Mindy
Dennis, Kalie Mackey, Marissa
Schick. Juniors – Amy Ahlers,
Kyrsten Brockmann. Freshman –
Anna Chamberlain.
Outlook: DelVal will have a deci-
sively tougher schedule, so it will
be a team to keep an eye on
throughout the season. Three
first-team all-stars plus others have
graduated, but there is a nucleus
of players to build around. Brock-
mann was a second-team all-star
and Mackey was an honorable
mention selection and the two will
anchor the defense. Dennis was
honorable mention as a midfielder.
The Warriors’ main concern will be
on the attack where graduation
took a toll. They should be compet-
itive with everyone.
4. Hazleton Area
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 10-0-1
Div. C, 1st
2010 postseason: Lost 4-0 to
Abington Heights in D2-3A cham-
pionship game.
Coach: Dan Matriccino
Home field: Football stadium
Players to watch: Seniors – Brandi
Benko, FB; Alyssa Bogert, FB;
Nicole Kracum, MF; Maria Notaro,
MF; Ashley Schoener, MF: Nicole
Semenza, FB/MF; Sara Spock,
FB/MF. Juniors – Megan Baranko,
K; Krista Leitner, MF. Sophomores –
Stephanie Fuchs, FB; Mariah La-
Porte, F.
Outlook: All-WVC selections Chiara
Matriccino and Danielle Semenza
graduated, taking most of the
offense with them. So in the early
going generating offense will be
challenging. The defense should be
solid with second-team all-star
Nicole Semenza and honorable
mention selection Bogart back. So
are six more starters from last
season, making a successful sea-
son likely.
5. Nanticoke
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 2-12 Div.
A, 7th
2010 postseason: none
Coach: Ryan Amos
Home field: Football stadium
Players to watch: Seniors – Carlee
Komorski, F; Paige Pientka, MF.
Junior – Cassie Yalch, MF. Sopho-
more – Brittany Sugalski, MF/FB.
Outlook: Nanticoke should be solid
at midfield as well as defense.
There could be some work to do on
offense and at goalkeeping where
the Trojanettes were hit hard by
graduation. Still, Nanticoke has a
lot of good athletes, although
on-field experience is lacking. The
main objective will likely be improv-
ing every game and picking up a
few more victories.
DIVISION 2-A
1. North Pocono
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 8-3-1
Div. C, 2nd
2010 postseason: Lost 10-0 to
Coughlin in D2-2A quarterfinals.
Coach: Hosiah “Dave” Davis
Home field: New high school,
Covington Twp.
Players to watch: Seniors – Cor-
rine Glassman, FB; Chelsea Kincel,
FB; Jessica Korshnak, F; Fjollza
Shabani, MF; Sarah Wicker, MF.
Juniors – Alyssa Hamill, Jr.; Mi-
chelle Stefanelli, MF; Meghan Utter,
K.
Outlook: The Trojans were very
young last season, yet turned in a
strong season. Four all-stars re-
turn, including first-team selection
Hamill, who will anchor what
should be a strong defense. Mid-
field also looks impressive. The
downside is North Pocono will
likely start slowly due to lack of
outdoor time. But once the Trojans
get rolling they could roll into first
place in the division.
2. Honesdale
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 5-6-1
Div. B, 4th
2010 postseason: none
Coach: Eric Eisele
Home field: Stourbridge Elemen-
tary,
Players to watch: Seniors – Taylor
Corbin, MF; Natalie Hoff, MF; Randi
Jo Kowalczyk, F; Alicia Manzione,
FB; Benita Pursch, FB. Sophomores
– Rhea Fowler, MF; Ally Hicks, F;
Seneca Propst, MF.
Outlook: Hoff was a first-team
all-star last year and Manzione was
a second-team selection. If they
and the other seniors blend well
with a solid sophomore class, the
Hornets will likely improve quite a
bit on last year’s record. The divi-
sion is wide open, and there’s little
reason to doubt Honesdale’s
chances to finish at the top.
3. Wyoming Seminary
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 1-13 Div.
A, 8th
2010 postseason: none
Coach: John Hannigan
Home field: Forty Fort Soccer
Fields or Payne-Pettibone
Players to watch: Seniors – Hope
Charney, FB; Caroline Meuser, F;
Allison Parkhurst, FB; Lucie Povo-
va, K. Juniors – Jahneece Davis,
F/FB; Katrina Grosek, MF/FB. Soph-
omores – Jessica Casterline, FB/K;
Christine Harris, F/MF; Bridget
McMullan, MF. Freshmen – Julia
Grosek, MF; Molly Turner, MF; Margi
Wiles, F.
Outlook: Seminary will get away
from the WVC’s perennial powers
by dropping down a division, so
that should help. The Blue Knights
return seven letterwinners, but
overall this is a very young team.
The coaching staff has been mov-
ing players to different positions,
so continuity might not be a strong
suit early. Nonetheless, Seminary
could be the dark horse for the
divisional crown.
4. Pittston Area
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 2-10 Div.
B, tied 6th
2010 postseason: Lost 5-0 to
Hazleton Area in D2-3A quarterfi-
nals.
Coach: Nicole Tieso
Home field: Primary Center, Rock
St., Hughestown
Players to watch: Seniors – Sara
Kielbasa, FB; Kaylene Sutkowski,
MF. Juniors – Danielle Fereck, MF/F;
Sarah Kosik, FB. Sophomore –
Elizabeth Mikitish, MF/F.
Outlook: Pittston Area returns
some experienced players, but
overall the team is very young,
with 10 freshmen on the 31-player
roster. Add in nine sophomores,
and it seems clear the Patriots will
experience some growing pains
throughout the season. However,
the seniors and other returnees
have taken the lead in guiding the
squad. If the newcomers blend with
the veterans quickly, Pittston Area
will likely increase its win total
from 2010.
5. Hanover Area
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 2-10 Div.
B, tied 6th
2010 postseason: none
Coach: Brian Bannon
Home field: High school
Players to watch: Seniors – Krista
Colorusso, MF/F; Mary Kate Keat-
ing, MF/F. Junior – Gaby Murphy,
F/MF. Sophomores – Kayla Keating,
MF/F; Samantha Masher, FB/MF.
Outlook: Mary Kate Keating, a
first-team all-star last year, gives
Hanover Area a dangerous fron-
tline player, while Masher is a
strong defender. After those two,
the Hawkeyes will need to sort out
the lineup with limited on-field
time. Another problem is numbers
as only 17 players are on the roster.
Staying healthy, obviously, will be
the key to improvement.
DIVISION 2-B
1. Wyoming Area
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 8-4 Div.
C, 3rd
2010 postseason: Lost 10-1 to
Dallas in D2-2A quarterfinals.
Coach: Mike Pryor
Home field: 10th St., Wyoming
Players to watch: Seniors – Mi-
chelle Gitkos, FB; Sarah Mack, MF;
Katie Scalzo, MF/F; Kourtny
Schwerdtman, F; Megan Yurek, K.
Outlook: Pryor takes over as coach
and has a nice group of returning
players with which to work. Scalzo,
a first-team all-star last season, has
one of the strongest legs in the
WVC and can score from anywhere.
Schwerdtman adds stability up
front and Mack does the same at
midfield. Yurek and Gutkos pace
the defense. If the Warriors can fill
some voids caused by graduation,
they could win the division.
2. Meyers
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 5-7 Div.
C, tied 4th
2010 postseason: none
Coach: Jason Nolan
Home field: Gordon Avenue
Players to watch: Seniors – Melin-
da Formola, FB; Christine Knooren,
FB; Maureen Lisman, F; Kaylee
Macko, MF; Ariel Weidler, MF. Ju-
niors – Leanne McManus, F; Alivia
Weidler, K.
Outlook: Meyers will be playing
with heavy hearts after the passing
of teammate Megan Horst. The
Mohawks are dedicating the sea-
son to her. The season could see
improvement and perhaps a run at
the division. Six seniors return who
logged significant time as under-
classmen and the goalkeeping is
experienced as well. Knooren,
Lisman and Macko were first-team
all-stars last year.
3. Tunkhannock
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 4-8 Div.
C, 6th
2010 postseason: none
Coach: Kaaron Swanson
Home field: Roslund Elem., Rte. 29
Players to watch: Seniors – Alissa
Franko, FB; Maria Romero, MF.
Juniors – Ameila Ayers, FB; Spen-
cer Corby, K; Janel Kalmanowicz, F;
Brielle Sherman, F; Vicki Williams,
F. Sophomores – Anna Boecker, FB;
Mackenzie Drungell, MF; Katie
Proulx, FB; Rachel Russell, MF.
Outlook: Tunkhannock returns
several experienced players and
should be able to improve on last
year’s record. Ayers and Romero
are returning second-team all-stars
and will anchor the midfield and
defense, respectively. There is also
stability up front with three return-
ees and in goal. The Tigers should
be competitive in every game and
could make a run at the division if
things fall into place.
4. GAR
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 5-7 Div.
C, tied 4th
2010 postseason: none
Coach: Stephanie Frank
Home field: old Wilkes-Barre Twp.
H.S.
Players to watch: Seniors – Emilee
Bubblo, MF; Kaitlyn Dunbar, MF;
Ashley Maloney, FB; Alicia Riggs-
bee, MF/F. Juniors – Kaleigh Bub-
blo, MF/FB; Caitlyn Kovach, FB;
Brianne Majikes, FB. Sophomore –
Freshman – Jillianna Leco, K.
Outlook: Frank becomes the fifth
new GAR coach in as many years
and will inherit the same concern,
a lack of numbers. Only 12 players
are on the roster, so staying
healthy is imperative. The Grena-
diers graduated a lot of speed up
front, but there are still some solid
players on the roster. Leco and
Bubblo were second-team all-stars
last season, while Riggsbee was an
honorable mention choice.
5. MMI Prep
2010 WVC Record/Finish: 0-12,
7th
2010 postseason: none
Coach: Kim McNulty
Home field: Raiders Field, 23rd St.,
Hazleton
Players to watch: Cassie Caldwell,
FB; Rachael Daniels, MF; Julia
Dasher, FB; Katlyn Frey, FB; Alexis
Haupt, F; Cathy Hood FB; Lyndsey
Joseph, F; Erin Kislan, F; Gabbie
Lobitz, MF; Amanda Miller, K.
Outlook: It’s been a tough road for
MMI, the smallest school in the
conference with just 59 girls. The
Preppers made some inroads in
2009 with two victories, but back-
slid last year. First-team all-star
Diana Anthony has graduated, but
there is some experience return-
ing. The main goals will probably
be improving throughout the sea-
son and picking up a couple victo-
ries.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Radek
Martinek and P.A. Parenteau
both had a goal and assist dur-
ing the Islanders’ four-goal sec-
ond period, and New York put
the area-rival Rangers back into
postseason peril with a 6-2 vic-
tory Thursday night.
After Blake Comeau got the
Islanders even 1-1 at 3:24, Marti-
nek put them in front 33 sec-
onds later.
Things settled down for a bit,
but the Islanders struck for two
more goals 1:16 apart — the first
by Jesse Joensuu at 13:28 and
the second by Parenteau to turn
it into a rout. Matt Moulson
scored his 31st goal of the sea-
son against backup Chad John-
son with 11:22 left, and Trevor
Gillies made it 6-1 at 14:00.
Even a one-goal deficit
seemed daunting to the Rang-
ers, who lost for the second
time in two nights.
Thrashers 1, Flyers 0
PHILADELPHIA — Nik An-
tropov scored the only goal, and
Chris Mason stopped 43 shots
for his first shutout of the sea-
son in the Atlanta Thrashers’
win over the Philadelphia
Flyers.
Mason earned his 21st career
shutout and was sensational
against the Eastern Conference-
leading Flyers. He stopped 14
shots in the second period and
got some timely offensive help
for his 13th win of the season.
Antropov scored his 15th goal
midway through the third peri-
od and it stuck to keep Atlanta’s
faint playoff hopes alive.
The Thrashers crashed after a
20-15-6 start and will need to
win their final five games and
get some help to make the post-
season for only the second time
in team history.
Atlanta went 3-1 vs. Philadel-
phia this season.
Senators 4, Panthers 1
SUNRISE, Fla. — Rookie
Colin Greening scored twice in
the second period and the Otta-
wa Senators completed a season
sweep of the Florida Panthers
with a victory.
Nick Foligno and Filip Kuba
also scored for the Senators,
who have won six in a row
against Florida dating to last
season. Marek Svatos had two
assists.
Craig Anderson made 37
saves to improve to 9-4-1 since
being acquired in a trade with
Colorado in February.
Michal Repik scored for the
Panthers, whose season-high
losing streak stretched to seven
games.
Scott Clemmensen, starting
in goal with Tomas Vokoun
nursing a back injury, stopped
19 shots.
Capitals 4, Blue Jackets 3
WASHINGTON — Jason
Chimera tipped in a rebound
2:30 into overtime to give the
Washington Capitals a 5-3 victo-
ry over the Columbus Blue
Jackets.
The Capitals had a 3-on-2
rush, resulting in Brooks Laich’s
shot that goalie Steve Mason
couldn’t handle. The rebound
went to Chimera and he tapped
the puck in to give Washington
its 12th victory in March.
The Capitals reached 101
points, crossing the 100-point
plateau for the third straight
season, to move within a point
of Philadelphia — a 1-0 loser to
Atlanta — for the Eastern Con-
ference lead.
Scottie Upshaw forced over-
time for Columbus, fighting off
two Washington defenders to
score his 22nd goal of the sea-
son with 5:37 remaining in the
third period.
Maple Leafs 4, Bruins 3
BOSTON — Nazem Kadri
scored the only shootout goal to
help the Toronto Maple Leafs
beat the Boston Bruins.
With the point for reaching
overtime, the Bruins clinched a
tie for the Northeast Division
title. The next Boston win or
loss by Montreal will give the
Bruins the division title.
Joffrey Lupul scored twice for
Toronto, Luke Scheen added a
goal and former Bruins forward
Phil Kessel had a pair of assists.
Brad Marchand, David Krejci
and Andrew Ference scored for
Boston.
Bruins goalie Tim Thomas,
who made 28 saves, made a
right-pad save on Mikhail Gra-
bovski’s penalty shot 43 seconds
into overtime, but Kadri beat
him with a backhand shot over
the left shoulder in the shoo-
tout.
Tyler Seguin, Michael Ryder
and Rich Peverley each failed in
the shootout for the Bruins.
James Reimer made a glove
stop on Peverley to end it.
Lightning 2, Penguins 1
TAMPA, Fla. — Martin St.
Louis scored his 30th goal of the
season, helping the Tampa Bay
Lightning clinch their first play-
off berth since 2007 with a 2-1
victory over the Pittsburgh
Penguins on Thursday night.
Steve Downie also scored for
the Lightning, who have won
three in a row following a four-
game losing skid.
Pittsburgh, which had won its
previous four road games, got a
goal from Michael Rupp.
Penguins center Sidney Cros-
by, sidelined for nearly three
months with a concussion,
resumed skating with his team-
mates in the game-day practice.
The Pittsburgh captain, out
since Jan. 6., is not ready yet to
participate in full practices. A
return to game action for the
postseason has not been com-
pletely ruled out.
Wild 4, Oilers 2
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Minneso-
ta goalie Niklas Backstrom
ended a six-start winless streak,
beating his favorite opponent in
the Wild’s victory over the Ed-
monton Oilers.
Defenseman Tom Gilbert and
Linus Omark each had power-
play goals — a rarity for Ed-
monton’s struggling special
teams unit — but the last-place
Oilers fell to 0-8-3 in their last 11
games.
Antti Miettinen, Marek Zi-
dlicky, Brad Staubitz and Martin
Havlat scored for Minnesota.
Backstrom has never lost to the
Oilers, improving to 14-0 in his
career against them.
With both teams out of the
playoff picture — the Oilers
were never in it this season —
this game was all about streaks.
The Wild beat Edmonton at
home for the 16th time in a row,
matching the longest current
run of consecutive home wins
against one team in the NHL.
They’ve outscored the Oilers
58-21 during the stretch.
NBA
Celtics 107, Spurs 97
SAN ANTONIO — Rajon
Rondo had 22 points and 14
assists, Paul Pierce scored 21
and the Boston Celtics stopped
slipping further from first in the
Eastern Conference, beating the
slumping San Antonio Spurs.
Kevin Garnett added 20
points and the Celtics, winning
for just the second time in five
games, moved within 2 games
of Chicago for the No. 1 playoff
seed in the East.
The Spurs stayed stuck in an
untimely tailspin. The NBA’s
winningest team lost its fifth in
a row and is in danger of falling
out of first place after comfort-
ably being No. 1 in the West all
season.
Tony Parker led the Spurs
with 23 points and Tim Duncan,
playing for the first time in five
games after spraining his ankle
last week, had 20 points and 13
rebounds.

Thiessen named first team AHL All-Star
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins goaltender Brad Thiessen was
named to the AHL All-Star first team on Thursday.
Thiessen, 25, began his season with eight consecutive victories
and has never looked back en route to amassing an AHL-high 32
wins (32-7-1) and a top-ranked 1.88 goals-against average through 42
appearances for the league-leading Penguins. A native of
Aldergrove, B.C., Thiessen is tied for the AHL lead with seven
shutouts, ranks seventh in save percentage (.924), and has not lost
back-to-back appearances all season long. He could become the first
AHL goaltender to record more than 30 wins and fewer than 10
losses since Hartford’s Jason LaBarbera in 2003-04 (34-9-9).
Thiessen is the fourth Wilkes-Barre/Scranton player and second
goaltender to be named to the AHL’s First All-Star Team, joining
defenseman John Slaney (2000-01), goaltender Dany Sabourin
(2005-06), and defenseman Micki DuPont (2006-07). Defensman
Ben Lovejoy and forward Janne Pesonen were named to the AHL
Second All-Star Team in 2008-09.
Other players named as first team all-stars were: defensemen
Marc-Andre Gragnani (Portland) and Maxim Noreau (Houston), left
wing Alexandre Giroux (Oklahoma City), center Corey Locke
(Binghamton) and right wing Mark Mancari (Portland).

The employment report
The Labor Department’s monthly
report on employment is arguably the
most important economic number for
investors right now. And they’re look-
ing for more signs of improvement.
Although the unemployment rate is
expected to be unchanged at 8.9
percent, economists are predicting a
moderate increase in jobs. Investors
and economists are likely to be more
optimistic after the government
reported a drop in the number of
people applying for unemployment
benefits.
A check on manufacturing
Some of the recent economic
numbers have pointed to a level-
ing off in manufacturing. Inves-
tors will get another reading from
the Institute for Supply Manage-
ment, which releases its assess-
ment of manufacturing activity
during March. Investors will want
to see if hiring is still rising at the
nation’s factories. They’ll also
want to see how fast prices are
rising for raw materials – and
how much of those costs are
being passed on to customers.
March auto sales
Car companies are
expected to be the ben-
eficiaries of the rising
price of gasoline,
because consumers are
looking for smaller cars
that cost less to gas up.
March sales numbers
that come out today are
expected to be up 16.5
percent from a year ago, and 25 percent from February. J.D.
Power and Associates predicts that 24 percent of cars bought
by individuals in March were small cars. So the Honda Civic
and Ford Fiesta are likely to show big gains.

Factory orders take a fall
U.S. factories orders fell in February,
as the government cut demand for
military planes and communications
equipment while businesses bought
fewer computers, turbines and power
generators.
Orders to U.S. factories slipped 0.1
percent in February after three straight
monthly gains, the Commerce Depart-
ment reported Thursday.
When excluding transportation,
orders rose 0.1 percent. That’s the
seventh straight increase for that cate-
gory. Still, a key measure of what busi-
nesses spent on capital goods fell for
the second straight month.
Even with the decline, factory orders
totaled $446 billion last month. That’s
a level economists view as healthy and
it is 26.4 percent above the recession
low hit in March 2009.
Economists expect the sector will
grow in the months ahead, based on
strong demand for exports and tax cuts
designed to encourage businesses to
spend more on capital goods.
Rite Aid sales down
Rite Aid Corp. said Thursday that a
key sales measurement slipped in
March because of lower sales of Easter-
related products.
Rite Aid said sales at stores open at
least one year fell 0.1 percent over the
four weeks ended March 26. At the
stores open at least a year, pharmacy
revenue grew 0.8 percent, and sales of
non-pharmacy items like seasonal
goods, candy, and cosmetics fell 1.8
percent. Prescriptions filled at those
stores rose 0.6 percent.
Sales at stores open at least one year
is considered a key measurement of
retailer health because it excludes
results from stores that opened or
closed in the last year.
Easter was on April 4 of 2010, which
put the holiday and the related sales in
Rite Aid’s March period. This year, the
holiday falls on April 24.
Car production to restart
Honda and Mazda say they will
resume limited production at several
Japanese factories in early April, but
full production depends on the flow of
parts.
Honda Motor Co. said Thursday that
two assembly plants will restart April
11, but only at half the normal rate.
Honda also says it will start making
parts on Monday for regions outside
Japan. Honda cautioned that the parts
supply situation remains fluid.
Mazda Motor Corp. says it will start
making cars at the Hiroshima and Hofu
plants Monday. A decision on resuming
full-scale production will come later.
Many Japanese factories are restart-
ing nearly three weeks after the coun-
try was hit by a devastating earthquake
and tsunami.
Orbitz cuts rental firms
One-stop shopping on Orbitz World-
wide got whacked again for consumers

and rental car from that single site.
Beginning Friday, Alamo Rent A Car
and National Car Rental brands will no
longer be available on the Orbitz
Worldwide site.
Orbitz, the second-largest online
travel agent in the U.S., has replaced
Alamo and National car rentals with
Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group

Thursday on the need for China’s curren-
cy to have a wider role in global finance,
but not as a substitute for the U.S. dollar.
French Finance Minister Christine La-
garde said the daylong meeting agreed
the G-20 should study including China’s
yuan in the basket of currencies that sets
the value of the International Monetary
Fund’s SDRs, or Special Drawing Rights
— a quasi currency created by the IMF
that is used in dealings with and between
member governments.
“Weraisedwithour Chinesefriends the
idea of including the yuan, under condi-
tions andatimeframetobeagreedupon,”
Lagarde said. The basket now includes
the dollar, Japanese yen, euro and British
pound.
Including the yuan would underline
China’s increasedclout inthe global econ-
omyandfinance after it last year overtook
Japantobecome the second-biggest econ-
omy. It might also serve as a carrot that
other G-20 members hope will encourage
Beijingtorelaxcontrols that limit theChi-
nese currency’s appreciation.
Since the gathering in the eastern Chi-
nese city of Nanjing was not an official
G-20 meeting, there was no formal agree-
ment, Lagarde said. She also clarified
there was “no suggestionwhatsoever that
thedollar bereplacedbySDRs,” anoption
that has been raised by China as a way of
reducing global reliance on the dollar for
trade and as a reserve currency.
SDRs areallocatedbytheIMFbasedon
each country’s voting rights in the organi-
zation and the fund acts as a middleman
between countries that want to exchange
themfor freely traded currencies.
G-20 wrestles with currency

WASHINGTON—The Federal
Reserve is naming the banks that
drew emergency loans during the
financial crisis, offering informa-
tion on its oldest lending tool for
the first time in the central bank’s
nearly100-year history.
The Fedwas compelledtomake
theinformationpublicaftertheSu-
preme Court rejected a bid by ma-
jor banks tokeepit secret.
At the height of the 2008 finan-
cial crisis, the Fed loaned as much
as $110 billion through the so-
called“discount window.”
The documents offered details
about whichbanks borrowedmon-
ey fromthe lending programfrom
August 2007throughMarch2010.
BigU.S. banks suchas Wachovia
and Morgan Stanley relied on the
Fed for short-term loans of $6 bil-
lion and $1.25 billion, respectively,
in the fall of 2008, the documents
showed. Sodidsome of the largest
foreign banks — Barclay’s bor-
rowed$1billion.
But smaller institutions also
drewfromthe discount windowat
the critical time for the financial
sector. The Savings Bankof Maine
and the Bank of Yazoo City in Mis-
sissippi both borrowed millions,
thedocuments showed.
Hardly any loans are now being
madebecausebanksareinstronger
financial shape and economic con-
ditions haveimproved.
BloombergL.P. hadsuedtheFed
seeking details about the Fed’s dis-
count window lending as well as
other Fed loans made during the
crisis. Asimilarlawsuitwaslaterfil-
ed by News Corp.’s Fox News Net-
work LLC. Other news organiza-
tions including The Associated
Press had filed briefs with the ap-
pellant court intheir support.
The Fed had said that some of
the information being sought was
made public in December. At that
time,theFedrevealeddetailsabout
all of its crisis-lendingprograms —
except for commercial banks that
drew loans through its discount
windowprogram.
MostoftheFed’scrisis-eralending
— more than $3 trillion worth —
camethroughthoseotherprograms.
Fed documents showed that it had
given trillions in emergency aid to
U.S. and foreign banks as well as
companies. Thedisclosureswerere-
quired under the financial overhaul
lawenactedlast year.
The newlawsays the Fedbegin-
ning in late 2012 must provide in-
formation on any commercial
banks that draw emergency loans
from its discount window, al-
though those details will stay se-
cret for about two years after the
borrowingtakes place.

WASHINGTON — The gov-
ernment is warning people to
stay out of those giant see-
through inflatable spheres
known as “water walking balls”
because of the riskof suffocation
or drowning.
TheConsumerProductSafety
Commission said Thursday that
it “doesnot knowof anysafeway
to use” the products, which are
popular at amusement parks, re-
sorts, malls and carnivals. They
resemble hamster balls but are
large enoughfor humans.
People climb into the plastic,
airtight balls and then roll
around — or try to walk — on
water inpools, lakes or rivers.
“Wewanttotellthepublichow
dangeroustheseproductsarebe-
foresomeoneis killed,” saidInez
Tenenbaum, chairman of the
commission. “Our investigation
into water walking balls will not
stopwithtoday’s warning.”
The agency is worried about
too little oxygen in the balls as
well as the buildup of carbon
dioxide.
Another concern: the fact that
the product has no emergency
exit and can be opened only by a
personoutsideof theball —ase-
rious problem if a person inside
the ball experiences distress.
The commission said it is
aware of two incidents in which
people were hurt.
In the first, a 5-year-old girl in
Kingston, Mass., passed out last
year while inside a ball for a brief
time. In the other, a young boy
suffered a broken arm when the
ball hewas infell out of ashallow
above-groundpool ontothehard
ground.
Theballs, CPSCsays, couldal-
sospringaleakor puncture, rais-
ing the drowning risk, especially
with young children who can’t
swim.

The government is warning people not to use those giant
see-through inflatable spheres known as ’water walking balls’
because of the risk of suffocation or drowning.
A new survey of small business owners
releasedThursdayfinds theeconomic out-
lookimprovingfor thenationandthestate
of Pennsylvania inthe spring.
PNC Financial Services Group’s six-
month Economic Outlook Survey found
that half of small-business owners state-
wide and nationally expect sales to im-
prove in the next six months, but rising
non-labor costs threatentosqueeze profits
andraise sellingprices.
“Therecoverylight hasn’t turnedgreen,
but it’s a lighter shade of yellow,” Stuart
Hoffman, chief economist for The PNCFi-
nancial Services GroupInc., saidinastate-
ment. “The survey results support our
view that the half-speed recovery that be-
ganinJuly 2009 is transitioningintoa self-
sustainingeconomic expansion.”
The survey was conducted between Jan.
31andMarch4andpolled1,445owners and
senior managers of businesses with annual
revenues between$100,000and$250,000.
In Pennsylvania, the poll found 50 per-
cent of business owners expect sales to in-
crease in the next six months, up from 43
percent inthe fall.
The outlook for Pennsylvania job-seek-
ershasalsoimproved, accordingtothesur-
vey, which found that 15 percent of busi-
ness owners expect to hire full-time em-
ployeesinthenexthalf-year, upfrom12per-
cent inthefall, whileonly8percent planto
downsize, down from 11 percent six
months earlier. The national unemploy-
ment rate of 8.9 percent is expected to
change little when new statistics are re-
leasedtoday.
The region including Lackawanna, Lu-
zerne and Wyoming counties continues to
holdthehighestunemploymentrateofPenn-
sylvania’s14metroareas, thoughunemploy-
ment in the region dropped four-tenths of a
percentagepoint to9.1percent fromDecem-
ber toJanuary. Unemployment was at 9per-
cent in Luzerne in January, a percentage
point lower thantherateayear earlier.
Thestudyalsofindsthatrisingnon-labor
costs, includingrisinggasolineandenergy
costs, add a touch of gray to the otherwise
bright outlook. Forty-twopercent of small-
business owners surveyedinPennsylvania

5percentintendtocutprices. Nearlythree-
quartersof respondentsinthenational poll
saidasustainedriseinenergypriceswould
negativelyimpact their businesses.
Bruce Fendler, owner of Fendler Distri-
buting/Harry’s Market in Wilkes-Barre
and a respondent in the survey, said sales
have risenslightly at his business, but eco-
nomic uncertainty has led customers to
wait until the last minute to place orders.
Risingfuel costs havealsoresultedinhigh-
er commodityprices, he said.
“It’s headingup, andnobody’s reallysur-
prised when they see something up,” Fen-
dler said of rising food prices. “Everything
is commodity-driven.”
Fendler said he thinks Luzerne County

“I’malwaystoldwelagbehindhereinthe

Energy stocks Oil is back above $100 per barrel.
That made energy No. 1 among the 10 industries
in the S&P 500 over the last three and 12 months.
Apple The iPad launched last year is a hit, and so
is this year’s version. Its stock rose 8 percent in
the first quarter to $348.51. Credit Suisse’s fore-
cast: $500 in a year.
Dividend investors More than 100 companies in
the S&P 500 raised dividends during the quarter,
up from 66 in the fourth quarter and 70 a year ago.
Investor uncertainty Unrest in the Middle East
and Japan’s nuclear crisis made investors anx-
ious. Individual investors lost some bullishness
during the quarter, according to a survey by the
American Association of Individual Investors. But
they’re more optimistic than a year ago.
Indian stocks After being a top performer early
in the bull market, India’s Sensex index fell 5 per-
cent in the first quarter, partly because of infla-
tion. Earlier gains mean it’s up 11 percent over
the last year.
Bond yields Investors including PIMCO’s Bill
Gross dumped Treasurys. The 10-year Treasury
yield, which moves opposite its price, ended the
quarter at 3.46 percent, up from 3.37 percent at
the end of 2010 but down from 3.83 percent a
year earlier.
Drivers A gallon of regular gas rose through the
quarter to an average $3.61 – up 29 percent from
$2.80 a year ago.
If you owned energy
stocks or Apple during
the first quarter or the
last year — congratu-
lations. You were one
of the big winners. But
if you bought gasoline,
you’re probably
feeling a little battered.
And if you wanted
higher Treasury
yields, you had a good
quarter but the last
year has been painful.
A look at who won
and who lost:

The company said Hong Kong fi-
nancial regulators are probing its
Macau casino over “alleged breach-
es” of financial regulations.
The insurer named a new CEO and
management team for its Chartis
global property casualty business
as part of a reorganization.
The used car dealership chain said
its net income and sales grew in the
most recent quarter, but its gross
margin was lower.
Stocks were mixed after the price of oil jumped to
a 30-month high. Reports on unemployment
claims and factory orders also weighed on stocks
Thursday. The government said fewer people ap-
plied for unemployment benefits last week. But an-
alysts expected a larger drop. The Dow fell 30.88
points, or 0.3 percent, to 12,319.73. The S&P 500
index fell 2.43, or 0.2 percent, to 1,325.83. The
Nasdaq composite index rose 4.28, or 0.2 per-
cent, to 2,781.07.

Welcome to the
wacky weather
month of April
when we can
have deep wind
driven snow and
90 degree tem-
peratures. This
year we begin
the fourth
month with a
few hours of
steady snow
much to the dis-
may of every
single person
reading this col-
umn this morn-
ing. At least it's
only a nuisance
snowfall of a few
inches with light
winds. Later
today, the snow
will diminish as
temperatures
rise to near 40
or higher, and
much of it will
melt soon away
as snow usually
does in April.
Skies will begin
to clear tonight,
but a steadfast
northwest wind
over the week-
end will keep
temperatures
colder than nor-
mal with only
limited sunshine.
- Tom Clark
NATIONAL FORECAST: A potent Noreaster will produce strong winds and heavy snow across parts of
New England today. Look for scattered rain and snow showers elsewhere in the Northeast. Light rain
and snow will also affect portions of the Upper Midwest. Look for scattered showers over the
Northern Plains and Rockies, as well. The Southwest will continue to bask in warm sunshine.
