TATE COLLEGE -- Penn State football will continue on. Rather than
deliver the death penalty to the Nittany Lions, the NCAA instead
placed the program into a coma on Monday, one that will likely take
years to recover from. Penn State football will continue on. But
barely. Dismayed with what it called an unprecedented failure of
institutional integrity at the university in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky
scandal, the NCAA granted President Mark Emmert unique authority to im-
pose severe sanctions on Penn State, forgoing the usual enforcement process.
Citing the university-commissioned Freeh
report, which concluded that top university
officials were predominately to blame for not
bringing allegations of child sexual abuse
to light, Emmert unleashed some of the
harshest penalties in NCAA history.
These events were perverse and
unconscionable, Emmert said. No
penalties can repair the damage
done by Jerry Sandusky.
But the culture that led to
the actions and inactions
that allowed (children)
to be victimized will
not be tolerated in col-
lege athletics.
Emmert consulted
with the NCAAs executive board -- composed
of university presidents from across the nation
-- before issuing five separate penalties
against the Lions.
A fine of $60 million, which will
be paid out in five annual install-
ments of $12 million, according to
Penn State President Rodney Erick-
son. The money is forbidden from
coming at the expense of any
other program at the univer-
sity -- athletic or academic.

SANCTIONS SLAMPENN STATE
The statement issuedby the family of
Joe Paterno in response to the sanc-
tions announced by the NCAA:
Sexual abuse is reprehensible, espe-
cially when it involves children, and no
one starting withJoe Paterno condones
or minimizes it. The horrific acts com-
mitted by Jerry Sandusky shock the
conscience of every decent human be-
ing. How Sandusky was able to get
away with his crimes for so long has yet
to be fully understood, despite the
claims and assertions of the Freeh re-
port.
The release of the Freeh report has
triggered an avalanche of vitriol, con-
demnation and posthumous puni-
shment on Joe Paterno. The NCAA has
now become the latest party to accept
the report as the final wordonthe Sand-
usky scandal. The sanctions announced
by the NCAA today defame the legacy
and contributions of a great coach and
educator without any input from our
family or those who knew him best.
That the President, the Athletic Di-
rector andthe Boardof Trustees accept-
ed this unprecedented action by the
NCAAwithout requiringafull dueproc-
ess hearingbeforetheCommitteeonIn-
fractions is an abdication of their re-
sponsibilities and a breach of their fidu-
ciary duties to the University and the
500,000 alumni. Punishing past, pre-
sent andfuturestudents of theUniversi-
ty because of Sanduskys crimes does
not serve justice. This is not a fair or
thoughtful action; it is a panicked re-
sponse to the publics understandable
revulsion at what Sandusky did.
The point of due process is to protect
against this sort of reflexive action. Joe
Paterno was never interviewed by the
University or the Freeh Group. His
counsel has not been able to interview
key witnesses as they are represented
by counsel relatedtoongoinglitigation.
We have hadno access to the records re-
viewed by the Freeh group. The NCAA
never contacted our family or our legal
counsel. And the fact that several par-
ties have pending trials that could pro-
duce evidence and testimony relevant
to this matter has beentotally discount-
ed.
Unfortunately all of these facts have
been ignored by the NCAA, the Freeh
Group and the University.

Statement by Penn State acting
AD David Joyner:
The Freeh Report concluded that
individuals at Penn State University
entrusted to positions of authority
shunned their basic responsibility to
protect children, and innocent chil-
dren suffered as a result. Our hearts
goout tothevictims of this abuseand
their families.
Today Penn State takes another
step forward in changing the culture
at the institution as
we accept the pe-
nalties of theNCAA
for the failure of
leadership that oc-
curred on our cam-
pus. We are deeply
disappointed that
some of our leaders
could have turned a
blind eye to such
abuse, and agree that the culture at
Penn State must change. As we move
forward, todays student athletes
have a challenging road ahead. But
they will do the right thing, as they
have always done. I am confident all
of our head coaches will come to-
gether to make the change necessary
to drive our university forward. Penn
State will continue to fully support
its established athletic programs,
which provide opportunities for over
800 student athletes.
Working together, the path ahead
will not be easy. But it is necessary,
just, and will bring a better future.
Our faculty, staff, students, athletes,
and parents will work together as
Penn State begins this new chapter.
Though this cooperation and collab-
oration, Penn State will become a na-
tional model for compliance, ethics,
and embodiment of the student ath-
lete credo.

Excerpt of NCAA statement on sanctions of Penn
State football:
By perpetuating a football first culture that ulti-
mately enabled serial child sexual abuse to occur, The
Pennsylvania State Universityleadershipfailedtovalue
and uphold institutional integrity, resulting in a breach
of the NCAA constitution and rules. The NCAA Divi-
sionI Boardof Directors andNCAAExecutive Commit-
tee directed Association President Mark Emmert to ex-
amine the circumstances and determine appropriate
action in consultation with these presidential bodies.
As we evaluated the situation, the victims affected
by Jerry Sandusky and the efforts by many to conceal
his crimes informed our actions, said Emmert. At our
core, we are educators. Penn State leadership lost sight
of that.
According to the NCAA conclusions and sanctions,
the Freeh Report presents an unprecedented failure of
institutional integrity leading to a culture in which a
football program was held in higher esteem than the
values of the institution, the values of the NCAA, the
values of higher education, and most disturbingly the
values of human decency.
The NCAA recognizes that student-athletes are not
responsible for these events and worked to minimize
the impact of its sanctions on current and incoming
football student-athletes. Any entering or returning
student-athlete will be allowed to immediately transfer
and compete at another school. Further, any football
student-athletes who remain at the university may re-
taintheir scholarships, regardless of whether they com-
pete on the team.
There has beenmuchspeculationonwhether or not
the NCAA has the authority to impose any type of pen-
altyrelatedtoPennState, saidEdRay, ExecutiveCom-
mittee chair and Oregon State president. This egre-
gious behavior not only goes against our rules and con-
stitution, but also against our values.
Because Penn State accepted the Freeh Report fac-
tual findings, whichthe university itself commissioned,
the NCAA determined traditional investigative pro-
ceedings would be redundant and unnecessary.
We cannot look to NCAA history to determine how
to handle circumstances so disturbing, shocking and
disappointing, said Emmert. As the individuals
charged with governing college sports, we have a re-
sponsibility to act. These events should serve as a call
to every single school and athletics department to take
anhonest lookat its campus environment anderadicate
the sports are king mindset that can so dramatically
cloud the judgment of educators.
Penn State fully cooperated with the NCAA on this
examination of the issues and took decisive action in
removing individuals in leadership who were culpable.
The actions already taken by the new Penn State
Board of Trustees chair Karen Peetz and Penn State
President Rodney Erickson have demonstrated a
strong desire and determination to take the steps nec-
essaryfor PennStatetoright theseseverewrongs, said
Emmert.

Leadership failed
NCAA: Football first culture enabled abuse
payer dollars will be involved in pay-
ing the fine, which will go toward pro-
grams for preventing child sexual
abuse and assisting victims.
From a football standpoint, the
most serious punishment is a massive
reduction in scholarships, the life-
blood of any program. Beginning
with the 2014 season, Penn State will
be able field only 65 scholarship play-
ers -- down from the NCAA cap of 85 --
for four years.
Starting with the upcoming recruit-
ing class of 2013, Penn State will also
only be allowed to sign15 scholarship
players in each of the next four years,
reduced from the usual limit of 25.
Similarly damaging is a four-year
postseason ban that will prevent the
Lions from playing in a bowl game or
the Big Ten championship until the
2016 season.
Those two will affect the pro-
grams future. The NCAA also struck
at Penn States past, vacating all wins
from 1998-2011, 112 in total -- 111 by
Joe Paterno and one by interim coach
Tom Bradley.
The decision removes the late Pa-
terno from the NCAA record books as
major college footballs all-time win-
ningest coach, dropping him from
409 career victories to 298. The 1998
date was cited in the Freeh report as
the first year Penn State officials were
made aware of allegations against
Sandusky, who was convicted last
month of 45 counts of child abuse.
The program and the university
will be on NCAA probation for five
years, and the school will be assigned
an independent athletics integrity
monitor for that span to help ensure
future compliance.
All of these penalties were agreed
to by Erickson, who was the lone
Penn State representative to sign off
on a consent decree drafted by Em-
mert and the NCAA. Erickson will
not be at the university during much
of the affected years, having an-
nounced he will step down from his
position in 2014.
Signing the consent decree means
that Penn State will not appeal any of
the sanctions handed down Monday.
It is important to know we are en-
tering a new chapter at Penn State
and making necessary changes, Er-
ickson said in a statement. We must
create a culture in which people are
not afraid to speak up, management
is not compartmentalized, all are ex-
pected to demonstrate the highest
ethical standards, and the operating
philosophy is open, collegial, and col-
laborative.
Later in the day, Erickson told the
Centre Daily Times that he and
school leaders had their backs to the
wall on this. We did what we thought
was necessary to save the program.
Erickson said the alternative would
have been the death penalty -- shut-
ting down football for a year or more
-- on top of other sanctions.
In addition to the NCAA puni-
shment, the Big Ten also announced
Monday that Penn State will be ineli-
gible to receive its share of the confer-
ences revenues from bowl games for
four years. The league estimated that
total to be $13 million, which will be
be donated to child abuse programs
in Big Ten communities.
Tasked with holding everything to-
gether is Bill OBrien, who has yet to
coach a game for the Lions.
OBrien, who was hired in January
to take over for the deposed Paterno,
affirmed his commitment to the pro-
gram despite the crippling sanctions.
I will do everything in my power
to not only comply, but help guide the
university forward to become a na-
tional leader in ethics, compliance
and operational excellence, OBrien
said in a statement. I knew when I
accepted the position that there
would be tough times ahead. But I am
committed for the long term to Penn
State and our student athletes.
I was then and I remain convinced
that our student athletes are the best
in the country. I could not be more
proud to lead this team and these
courageous and humble young men
into the upcoming 2012 season. To-
gether we are committed to building
a better athletic program and univer-
sity.
Released in January, OBriens con-
tract contained no sort of escape
clause -- language that would allow
him to leave his post in the event of
circumstances such as NCAA sanc-
tions.
As written, the contract would re-
quire OBrien to essentially buy out
the remaining four-and-a-half years
left on it, which would cost him more
than $4 million.
OBrien and players did not speak
publicly on Monday and declined
comment. OBrien is scheduled to ad-
dress the situation on Thursday in
Chicago at Big Ten media days.
Emmert said he hopes the swift
and historic message sent to Penn
State causes universities across the
country to evaluate the role of athlet-
ics at the collegiate level.
The gut-check message is do we
have the right balance in our cul-
ture?" Emmert said. "Or are we in a
position where hero worship and win-
ning at all costs has subordinated our
core values?
We have to make sure we have the
balance right.

well as the adoption of recommen-
dations from the Freeh Report,
which include security measures,
compliance with the Clery Act and
abuse-awareness training.
MacKay, who said she read the
entire Freeh report, penned by
former judge and FBI director Louis
Freeh on behalf of Penn State, add-
ed that she hopes other universities
will examine their policies and
procedures.
Policies and procedures have
been kind of ignored (in regard to
sexual abuse), MacKay said. As
advocates, we werent being heard
until the realities were shown, un-
fortunately in a very dramatic way.
MacKay said that because of the
NCAA sanctions, Sanduskys convic-
tion and general media coverage of
the topic, hopefully more victims of
sexual abuse will feel comfortable
to come forward with their stories.
Luzerne County Detective Lt.
Gary Sworen, who works with the
countys Child Advocacy Center
that deals with children who are
victims of sexual abuse, agreed with
MacKay.
We need to be open (about child
sexual abuse). These things do
happen, Sworen said. We have to
try to protect our young people.
Sworen said he too believes the
sanctions will help future victims of
sexual assault. But as for the vic-
tims of Sandusky, Sworen said its
hard to say whether theyll get the
closure they want.
The sanctionsare a starting
point towards recovery and clo-
sure, he said. Education is impor-
tant. (Sexual abuse) has to be ad-
dressed.
Psychiatrist Richard Fischbein of
Kingston, who treats sexual offend-
ers and victims, said its hard to tell
how the NCAAs actions will affect
Sanduskys victims, as victims tend
to find it more helpful when the
offender is prosecuted.
How it helps individual (victims)
varies, Fischbein said. Some have
developed a lot of anger that the
school didnt help them, while oth-
ers may feel they wouldnt have
been a victim if the actions were
properly reported.
He said he believed the NCAA
was sending a message that no
football program or sports program
can become so important that the
school or powers that be lose hu-
man decency.

WILKES-BARRE Mayor
Tom Leighton said city attor-
neys will be made available to
answer any questions Depart-
ment of Public Works employ-
ees have regarding a criminal
probe into missing fuel, but the
attorneys will not represent the
employee.
Leighton said he made the of-
fer to DPW workers during a
meeting on Friday at which
time he also stressed the impor-
tance that they tell the truth if
questioned by Luzerne County
detectives.
I just wanted to let them
know the city administration
plans to cooperate 100 percent
in any investigation. We want
to make sure they answer ques-
tions truthfully and honestly,
Leighton said.
Frank Sorick, president of
the Wilkes-Barre Taxpayers As-
sociation, said he was con-
cerned by Leightons meeting
with the employees because
two DPW workers told him
Leighton said a city attorney
would accompany them to any
interview with detectives, if
they wished.
But Leight-
on said that is
not accurate.
Several DPW
employees
contacted him,
wanting to
know what
their rights were or if they
should have an attorney pre-
sent if they are contacted by de-
tectives.
I said if they had legal ques-
tions or concerns, we would
make a city attorney available
to answer those questions, but
they would not be available to
represent them because of a po-
tential conflict, Leighton said
Detectives are expected to in-
terview employees as part of
their probe into nearly 18,000
gallons of gasoline and diesel
fuel that a Times Leader inves-
tigation revealed are missing
from the citys tanks between
Dec. 1, 2011 and June 22.
Sorick acknowledged its pos-
sible the employees he spoke to
misunderstood Leightons com-
ments. He said his primary con-
cern was that city attorneys not
represent any employee.
If hes saying thats not what
happened and it was a misun-
derstanding, Im good with
that. As long as the city attor-
ney is not accompanying them,
Im happy, Sorick said.

PRINGLE -- Teachers at West
Side Career & Technology Cen-
ter are very positive about two
new progressive education pro-
grams being introduced this
school year, the schools Joint
Operating Committee learned
Monday.
Administrative Director Nan-
cy Tkatch told the committee
that both the clustering and hy-
brid learning models are being
well received as they are rolled
out to teachers.
She said that in the clustering
model teams of academic core
subject teachers are partnered
with teachers froma group of re-
latedoccupational shops, sothat
all students in those shops are
taught their academic course-
workbythesamegroupof teach-
ers. This allows the teachers to
customize their academic core
worktobemorerelevant towhat
students in those shops will en-
counter in future employment,
Tkatch said, and allows the
teachers to work as an integrat-
edteamtodeal withthat specific
group of students.
Hybrid learning integrates
digital content into the class-
room through the use of laptop
computers and allows the stu-
dents to experience class mate-
rial in more than one way,
Tkatch said. The tech school is
one of three local high schools
using hybrid learning, Tkatch
said Crestwood and tech
school member district Dallas
aretheothers -- andtheonlytech
school in the commonwealth to
do so. The project is being fund-
ed by a $66,000 grant and will be
rolled out first in the health and
human services area, which in-
cludes health care technology
and law enforcement, she said.
Im so pleased with how our
teachers are responding to this,
said Tkatch, even our veteran
teachers are embracing this be-
cause they see what it can do.
In other business in the brief
meeting, the committee:
Appointed Daniel Berry as
HVAC instructor, effective Sept.
1.
Added Christopher Nice
(mathematics) and William
Gouger (English) to the profes-
sional staff substitute list.
Approved the purchase of a
point-of-sale systemfor the cafe-
teriaat acost of $8,304fromPCS

The systemwill replace a home-
grown system and allow better

told.

Settlement gets shared
Dozens of Pennsylvania munici-
palities and non-profit organiza-
tions will get a share of an $11.5
million settlement reached with
two banks accused of taking part
in a bid-rigging scheme, state
Attorney General Linda Kelly
announced Monday.
Locally, the Crestwood School
District and the Lackawanna
County Multipurpose Stadium
Authority are set to receive resti-
tution. The district will get
$9,659, while the stadium author-
ity is due $6,071.
The money comes from settle-
ments reached with Bank of
America and JP Morgan Chase.
In a press release, Kelly said the
banks took advantage of local
governments, school districts and
non-profit organizations that were
attempting to invest or protect
the proceeds of tax-exempt bonds.
A number of banks, brokers
and financial service firms manip-
ulated the bidding process and
shared information, causing vic-
tims to pay higher fees and re-
ceive lower interest rates, Kelly
said.
The Bank of America settle-
ment will result in distribution of
$2.9 million to 70 local govern-
ments and organizations state-
wide, while the JP Morgan Chase
settlement will distribute $8.6
million.

Y in backpack drive
This August, the Wilkes-Barre
Family YMCA is partnering with
Volunteers of America for Oper-
ation Backpack a program de-
signed to help underserved chil-
dren get ready for school.
Anyone
who do-
nates a
new back-
pack with
school
supplies to
the Wilkes-
Barre Y
from Aug. 1 to 25 will pay only
$20 to start their annual member-
ship a savings of more than
$120. If a current member do-
nates, he or she will receive $20
off his or her next months mem-
bership fee.
While an exciting time, getting
kids ready to go back to school
can prove to be a huge financial
burden for parents, said Meghan
Davis, marketing and communi-
cations director at the Y, adding
that Y officials hope the huge
membership savings will give
prospective and current members
of the Y an incentive to donate.

SCRANTON A class-action
lawsuit filed against First Com-
munity Bank and Trust alleges
the bank manipulated the order
in which it posted debit card
transactionstocauseconsumers
to overdraft their accounts, al-
lowing it to reap obscene prof-
its by increasing the number of
overdraft fees it imposed.
Thesuit, filedonbehalf of Wil-
liam and April Johnson of Clif-
ford Township in Lackawanna
County, claims the banks un-
conscionable practices caused
some consumers to overdraw
their accounts, even though
there were sufficient funds to
cover the charges.
It did so by grouping several
days of charges into a single
batch, then paying the highest
charge first, even when lesser
charges were incurred prior to
the highest charge.
That caused accounts to hit a
negative balance sooner.
If the charges hit in the order
they were made, or were paid
fromlowest tothehighest, there
would have been sufficient
funds tocover moreof thecharg-
es, leading to fewer overdraft
fees, according to the suit filed
byattorneyJeffreyOstrowof the
Kopelowitz Ostrow law firm in
of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
They would sometimes hold
a transaction two or three days
then, all of a sudden, lump them
together, Ostrow said in a
phone interview Monday. It
makesit nearlyimpossibletofig-
ure out what was in the account
most of the time.
In the Johnsons case, they
oncemade13chargesonasingle
day and incurred three separate
overdraft fees of $32each, or $96
total. Had the bank posted the
charges from lowest to highest,
the couple would have had suffi-
cient fundstocoverall but oneof
the charges, which would have
reduced their overdraft fee to
$32.
The suit is among dozens of
lawsuits filed nationwide
against numerous banks that
have challenged policies relat-
ing to overdraft fees for debit
and automatic teller machine
cards, Ostrow said. It names
First Liberty and its parent com-
pany, Community Bank NA of
Canton, N.Y., as defendants.
Community Bank operates
175bankingcentersinNewYork
andPennsylvania, includingsev-
eral First Liberty branches locat-
ed in Wilkes-Barre, Kingston

WILKES-BARRE A former em-
ployee of the Luzerne County Trea-
surers Office who pleaded no contest
in April 2009 to taking more than
$14,000 in property-tax payments
should be held in contempt of court
for failing to pay restitution in the
case, the countys probation office
said in court papers Monday.
Jennifer Masulis, 37, of Pittston,
was sentenced in 2009 by former
Judge Michael Toole to two years pro-
bationafter prosecutors saidshe stole
money on 24 separate occasions from
April 17, 2006 to Feb. 9, 2007.
At the time of her sentencing, Ma-
sulis had already paid back $6,729 to-
ward the total $14,000 owed to the
county.
In a report dated July 13, the coun-
tys adult probationandparoledepart-
ment said Masulis still owes a total of
$7,260, which includes court costs
and supervision fees.
Masulis is on a payment plan of $75
per monthandhas defaultedto a total
of $850, court papers say.
Aphone number couldnot be locat-
ed to reach Masulis for comment
Monday. She hadpreviously beenrep-
resented by former defense attorney
and current county Judge Joseph
Sklarosky Jr.
Masulis had worked in the county
Treasurers Office for about five years
when prosecutors were alerted to the
missing money when another Trea-
surers Office employee, Laura Beers,
said she became alarmed when tax-
payers began complaining they re-
ceived delinquent tax notices when,
in fact, their taxes were paid.
County Judge William Amesbury
scheduled a hearing for Aug. 9 to de-
termine if Masulis should be held in
contempt of court.
Masulis may also face a probation
violation and be scheduled to appear
at revocationhearingwhere she could
be resentenced in the case.

WILKES-BARRE A Plymouth
man convicted by a Luzerne County
jury of sexually assaulting two girls
will have to wait to learn his puni-
shment.
Judge Tina Polachek Gartley said
Monday that Robert Caravella, 53,
will be sentenced after his trial on
charges he neglected a teen boy who,
investigators said, did not know how
to brush his teeth or
bathe.
A jury of four wom-
en and eight men on
April 25 convicted
Caravella of sexually
assaulting two girls
known to him in Ply-
mouth and Nanti-
coke from 2002 to 2005. Police al-
leged Caravella would make them
watch pornographic videos or look at
adult magazines.
Prosecutors said the girls were 3
and 7 when the assaults began.
Caravellas attorney, Andrew Kat-
His wife, Carol Hann, 44, is also
facing a trial on child endangerment
charges.
Plymouth police and county detec-
tives allege Caravella and Hann ne-
glected a 13-year-old boy in their care
for several years.
Investigators allege they found the
couples home on Gould Street in Ply-
mouth in deplorable condition with
garbage covering the floors and a
strong odor of urine when the boy
was removed in August 2010.
The boy did not know how to brush
his teeth, use utensils to eat or know
how to bathe, investigators said.
sock III, and prosecutors requested
the sentencing hearing be continued
for different reasons.
Katsock sought to have Caravella
sentenced after the trial next week
while prosecutors are waiting for a
report from the Sexual Offenders As-
sessment Board to determine if Cara-
vella is designated a sexual predator
under the states Megans Law.
A new sentencing date has not
been scheduled.
Caravellas trial on child endanger-
ment related charges is scheduled to
begin Aug. 1. A jury is expected to be
selected Monday.

WILKES-BARRE Kings College
has been on an unsustainable financial
pathinrecent years,accordingtoanew
studybyBain&Company, whichdeter-
minedone-thirdof nearly1,700colleges

more than they can afford.
The study has been criticized for us-
ing old data and for using only two fi-

Using data from 2005 through 2010,
Bain calculated an
equity ratio by
lookingat thechange

The company also
calculated an ex-

schools expense ratio increased by 5
percent and the equity ratio decreased
by 5 percent, it was deemed financially
unsustainable.
But Kings College President the Rev.
JackRyannotedthat lookingat dataon-
ly until 2010 skews the results because
endowment funds of most institutions
took big hits during the recession, then
began to rebound in 2011.

Obama defends record
P
resident Barack Obama is
defending his foreign policy
record and taking veiled shots
at Republican Mitt Romney over
the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Speaking to the Veterans of
Foreign Wars, Obama said hes
delivered on his promise to end
Iraq responsibly and to wind
down the Afghan fight.
Not mentioning Romney by
name, he noted some critics have
opposed his Afghan timeline. But
Obama says he owes it to the
troops.
Romney addresses the VFW
today before leaving on a three-
country foreign trip.
WASHINGTON
AIDS progress touted
Secretary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton says its possible to
virtually eliminate HIV-infected
births and the U.S. is donating
$80 million in new funding to
help poor countries reach that
goal.
Treating HIV-infected women
so that they protect their babies
is a key part of the Obama ad-
ministrations goal of an AIDS-
free generation.
Clinton told the International
AIDS Conference Monday that
the new money will help get
those life-saving drugs to women
who now slip through the cracks.
Clinton also says the U.S. is
investing millions more to study
what works best to protect the
highest-risk population in hard
hit countries gay and bisexual
men, sex workers and injecting
drug users.
BAGHDAD
Over 100 die in Iraq
A startling spasm of violence
shook more than a dozen Iraqi
cities Monday, killing more than
100 people in coordinated bomb-
ings and shootings and wound-
ing twice as many in the coun-
trys deadliest day in more than
two years.
The attacks came only days
after al-Qaida announced it
would attempt a comeback with
a new offensive against Iraqs
weakened government.
With the U.S. military gone
and the government mired in
infighting, the Iraqi wing of al-
Qaida has vowed to retake areas
it once controlled and push the
nation back toward civil war.

Fourteen dead in crash
A pickup truck overloaded
with illegal immigrants veered
off a highway and crashed into
trees in rural South Texas, killing
at least 14 people and leaving
nine injured, authorities said
Monday.
Federal immigration agents
were looking into the human
smuggling aspect of the case,
while public safety authorities
investigated the cause of the
Sunday evening crash in Goliad
County, about 150 miles north-
east of the border with Mexico.
The pickup crammed with 23
immigrants from Mexico and
Central America crashed less
than an hours drive from the site
of the nations most deadly im-
migrant smuggling case.

Muddy aftermath from flood
A child plays on the mud Mon-

CENTENNIAL, Colo. His hair dyed
a shocking comic-book shade of orange-
red, the former doctoral student accused
of killing moviegoers at a showing of the
newBatman movie appeared in court for
the first time on Monday, but he didnt
seem to be there at all.
James Holmes shuffled into court in a
maroon jailhouse jumpsuit with his
hands cuffed the first look the world
got of the 24-year-old since the Friday
shooting that left 12 people dead and 58
others injured at a packed midnight
screening of The Dark Knight Rises.
Unshaven and appearing dazed,
Holmes sat virtually motionless during
the hearing. At one point, Holmes simply
closed his eyes. Prosecutors said they
didnt know if he was being medicated.
Throughout the hearing, he never said
a word. His attorneys did all the talking
when the judge asked him if he under-
stood his rights.
His demeanor, however, angered the
relatives of some of the victims of the
shooting. Some stared at him the entire
hearing, including Tom Teves, whose
son, Alex, was killed in the attack. Teves
watched Holmes intently, sizing him up.
I saw the coward in court today and
Alex couldhave wipedthe floor withhim
without breaking a sweat, said Teves,
whose son, a physical therapist, dove to
protect his girlfriend.
The hearing was the first confirmation
that Holmes hair was colored. OnFriday,
there were reports of his hair being red
and that he told arresting officers that he
was The Joker. Batmans nemesis in
thefictional Gothamhas brightlycolored
hair.
Investigators found a Batman mask in-
side his apartment after they finished
clearing it of booby traps, a law enforce-
ment official close to the investigation
said Sunday.
Holmes, whom police say donned
body armor and was armed with an as-
sault rifle, a shotgun and handguns dur-
ing the attack, was arrested shortly after-
ward. He is refusingtocooperate, author-
ities said. They said it could take months
to identify a motive.

BEIRUTSyria threatenedMon-
day to unleash its chemical and bio-
logical weapons if the countryfaces a
foreign attack, a desperate warning
froma regime that has failedtocrush
a powerful and strengthening rebel-
lion.
The statement Syrias first-ever
acknowledgement that the country
possesses weapons of mass destruc-
tion suggests President Bashar
Assad will continue the fight to stay
in power, regardless of the cost.
It would be reprehensible if any-
body in Syria is contemplating use of
such weapons of mass destruction
like chemical weapons, U.N. Secre-
tary-General Ban Ki-moon said dur-
ing a trip to Belgrade, Serbia. I sin-
cerely hope the international com-
munity will keep an eye on this so
that there will be no such things hap-
pening.
Syria is believed to have nerve
agents as well as mustard gas, Scud
missiles capable of delivering these
lethal chemicals and a variety of ad-
vancedconventional arms, including
anti-tank rockets andlate-model por-
table anti-aircraft missiles.
During a televised news confer-
ence Monday, Foreign Ministry
spokesman Jihad Makdissi stressed
that the weapons are secure and
would only be used in the case of an
external attack.
No chemical or biological weap-
ons will ever be used, and I repeat,
will never be used, during the crisis
in Syria no matter what the develop-
ments inside Syria, he said. All of
these types of weapons are instorage
and under security and the direct su-
pervision of the Syrian armed forces
andwill never be usedunless Syria is
exposed to external aggression.
The Syrian government later tried
to back off from the announcement,
sending journalists an amendment
to the prepared statement read out
by Makdissi. The amendment said
all of these types of weapons IF
ANY are in storage and under se-
curity. It was anattempt toreturnto
Damascus position of neither con-
firming nor denying the existence of
unconventional weapons.

TERRADES, Spain As a wildfire
closed in on them, five members of a va-
cationing French family abandoned
their car and stumbled through thick
smoke downa steephillside ina desper-
ate bid to reach the waters of the Medi-
terranean. Instead of a beach, they
found themselves at the edge of a cliff
with no choice but to jump or try to
climb down. Two plummeted to their
deaths.
The deaths of the father and daugh-
ter off the 65-foot high cliff were among
the most tragic tales from Spain as it
battles blazes during one of its driest
summers in decades. The fire involved
was likely sparked by someone throw-
ing a lit cigarette out of a car along a
small road inundated by vehicles head-
ing to France, police said.
The deaths occurred Sunday night in
Portbou, a Spanish town just three
miles from the French border. Because
wildfires elsewhere had forced the clo-
sure of the main highway linking Spain
to France, traffic was diverted to the
smaller road via Portbou.
The tossedcigarette apparently start-
ed a fire on the pavement which quickly
spread to woods along the road before
the cars couldescape andofficials could

The mother tried to scale down the
crumbly cliff-face, but lost her grip and
fell, said Tony Buixeda, the towns port
manager, who was at the scene in a
boat.
The 60-year-old father died instantly
when he hit submerged rocks, and his
15-year-old daughter drowned, Cortaba
said.
Elisabet Cortaba said Monday. Around
150 people were soon running from
their vehicles and down into the rocky
terrain toward the beach.
The deadly northern regional wind
phenomenon called Tramontana led
to intense gusts in the heavily forested
area, spreading the blaze quickly. Dur-
ing all this, the family of five became
separated from the rest of the group on
the way down and found itself at the

Hal Wentworth, a senior vice
president for Community Bank,
declined to comment on the suit.
Thesuit relates todebit and/or
ATMcards that allowconsumers
towithdrawmoney fromtheir ac-
count and to make purchases di-
rectly frommerchants. The funds
are deducted automatically from
the purchasers account.
Banks, including First Liberty,
know instantaneously whether
an account has sufficient funds to
cover a charge. Rather than de-
cline a purchase when there are
insufficient funds, First Liberty
allowed the charge to go through
so that it could collect an over-
draft fee andmaximize its profits,
the suit says.
Ostrow sites a study that esti-
mated banks charged $37.1 bil-
lion in overdraft fees alone in
2009, up from$17 billion in 2007.
A spokesperson for First Liber-
ty Bank did not return a phone
message Monday seeking com-
ment on the suit.
The Johnsons suit notes First
Liberty changed its policy in May
2011 and now post charges from
lowest to highest. The suit seeks
damages for the banks past prac-
tices.
Thesuit allegesthebankviolat-
ed several consumer protection
statutes. It seeks an order direct-
ing the bank to forfeit profits it
made from the questioned over-
draft fees, as well as topayrestitu-
tion for affected persons and pu-
nitive damages.

According to Bains data, Kings

perpupil amongtheareasfour-year
institutions: $19,359 per full-time-
equivalent student, more thandou-

fund per pupil, $18,625.
An article in the Chronicle of

sis, noting it put some of the na-
tions wealthiest schools includ-
ing Harvard and Notre Dame in
the financially unsustainable cate-
gory.
Ryan conceded that Bains calcu-
lations regarding the expense ratio
were accurate, but said it stems
from a deliberate decision to in-
creasestudent aidduringthereces-
sion.
In 2008, when the financial cri-
sis and recession hit hardest, we
made a purposeful decision to sub-
stantially increase financial aid,
Ryan said. As a result, net tuition
the amount students paid after fi-
nancial aid was factored in drop-
ped for three years at Kings, Ryan
added.
The Chronicle also noted that

NUANGOLA The sewer au-
thority acted Monday night to
advance the sewage system pro-
ject by adopting the recommen-
dation of engineer Rich Kresge
that notice to award construc-
tion contracts be forwarded to
Doli Construction of Chalfont.
and Wexcon Contractors Inc. of
Mooresville.
At a meetinginApril, Doli sub-
mitted the low bid of $1,139,200
for phase 2 of the project, which
entails work outside of the bor-
ough. Wexcon had the low bid
for phase 1, work within the bor-
ough limits, at $4,464,275.
The same notice will be pro-
vided to Site Specific Designs, E-
One Pumps of Niskayuana, N.Y.
on a procurement contract of
$961,592 for the purchase of
grinder pumps.
In turn, Kresge, with the
Quad3 Group of Wilkes-Barre,
said Wexcon, Doli and Site Spe-
cific must provide a certificate of
insurance and documentation of
a performance bond equal to100
percent of the contract before an
award becomes official..
Kresge said that construction
shouldbegininfour tosixweeks.
Documentation and legal work
with two major lenders, Fulton
Bank of Lancaster and the U.S.
Department of Agriculture,
must still be executed. A high-
way occupancy permit from Lu-
zerne County is still needed, said
David Pekar, authority chair-
man.
Pekar said that in county engi-
neer Joe Gibbons most recent
communicationhe is demanding
that Nuangola provide a seven-
year performance and mainte-
nance bond, or sustain $400,000
in an escrow account for seven
years, for that phase of the sewer
line that will parallel Blytheburn
Road.
Gibbons has said that because
Blytheburn Road has been re-
paved in the past year, he wants
assurances from the authority
that if any damage occurs, Nuan-
gola will fix it.
The sewer authority believes
Gibbons demands are excessive.
Also, Solicitor Robert Gonos
said the authority is moving to-
ward closing on a $6 million
bridge loan from Fulton Bank of
Lancaster.

SUMMERVILLE, Ga. More
than 1,000 turtles made a slow-
speed escape from their turtle
farm in northwest Georgia.
Turtle farmer David Driver
told sheriffs officials he suspects
vandals might be to blame for
tearing down fences around his
turtle ponds in Summerville.
Authorities said that allowed
theturtles includingsnappers,
Eastern paints and yellow-bellied
sliders to leave the farm and
make a beeline to nearby ponds
and creeks.
Driver told The Chattanooga
Times FreePress that about1,600
of the 2,200 turtles escaped. He
said his business involves selling
some turtles to pet-growing oper-
ations and others to China.
Sheriffs officials are contin-
uing to search for the turtles.
Summerville, known more as
the home of folk artist Howard
Finster than it is for turtles, is
about 90 miles northwest of At-
lanta.

WILKES-BARREAnattorney
for Wilkes-Barre Township Fire
Chief John Yuknavich has asked
prosecutors to outline exactly
when his client allegedly took
moneyor madepersonal purchas-
es withfire company money.
Arguinghis client is innocent of
thecharges, attorneyBarryDyller
said he cannot prove who did
what if (prosecutors) wont tell
me the specifics.
The arguments were made at a
pre-trial hearing for Yuknavich,
48, whowaschargedinDecember
with taking $11,865 from the de-
partments bankaccount between
October 2008 and August 2010
and using the
departments
credit card at
Sams Club for
$3,706 in per-
sonal purchas-
es.
Dyller argued
it is impossible
that all transactions between Oc-
tober 2008 and August 2010 were
donecriminally, andthat multiple
creditcardswerebeingusedatthe
same time.
Dyller said, for example, two
purchasesweremadeonthesame
daybut at twolocationstwohours
apart one in Pennsylvania the
other inNewJersey.
Am I supposed to guess what
items purchasedbreakany laws?
Dyller asked Judge Joseph Skla-
roskyJr. I needtoknowwhat pur-
chases were legitimate andwhich
were illegitimate.
Assistant District Attorney Mi-
chael Melnick said all of informa-
tion prosecutors have has been
given to Dyller, and prosecutors
are alleging each transaction be-
tween October 2008 and August
2010 was done criminally.
Sklarosky said he would accept
court papers fromMelnick before
issuing a ruling onthe request.
Dyller also said he did not re-
ceivesomecourtpapersregarding
the case in the evidence provided
byprosecutors, but Sklaroskytold
the attorneys to work out that as-

SCRANTON A federal judge
has granted early release to Char-
les Costanzo, who was convicted
of stealing more than $600,000
from Lackawanna County, after
being advised Costanzo suffers
from terminal cancer.
U.S. District Judge Edwin Ko-
sik granted the motion, filed by
the U.S. Attorneys Office, to im-
mediately release Costanzo
basedonmedical reports that say
he has less than a year to live.
After receiving credit for good
conduct, Costanzo would be eli-
gible for home detention as of
Feb. 28, 2014, and would have
concludedhis prisonsentence on
Aug. 29, 2014. Kosiks order
grants him permission to be re-
leased to the home of his mother,
Joan, in Dunmore.
Costanzo, 51, was convicted in
2009 of stealing $647,260 from
Lackawanna Countys workers
compensation fund. He was sen-
tenced in August 2009 to 70
months in prison.
Costanzo was a partner in Ex-
ecutive Claims Administration,
which was hired in 2004 by for-
mer Lackawanna County com-
missioners Robert Cordaro and
A.J. Munchak to administer the
workers compensation fund.
Cordaro and Munchak were
convicted in June 2011 of taking
bribes from companies that did
business with the county. Prose-
cutors had planned to call Cos-
tanzo to testify, but he refused.
In the motion seeking early re-
lease, U.S. Attorney Peter J. Smith
saidCostanzowas diagnosedwith
gastric cancer inApril after a large
tumor was discovered blocking
the entrance of the esophagus to
his stomach. His conditionis inop-
erable.
He is currently hospitalized at
the Hershey Medical Center.
Smith notes that federal law al-
lows a judge to reduce a sentence
for extraordinary and compelling
reasons.
The defendants terminal
medical condition and limited
life expectancy constitute ex-
traordinary and compelling rea-
sons, Smith said.
Kosiks order directs Costanzo
havenocontact withanywitness-
es fromhis trial or the trial of Cor-
daro or Munchak. Hes also pro-
hibited from any conduct with
Cordaro and Munchak.

RIDING FOR THE CHILDREN
AMANDA HRYCYNA/ FOR THE TIMES LEADER
R
iders participating in the Christmas in July motorcycle run hosted by the Salvation Army to benefit its toy give-
away program in December get ready to take off on the hour-long ride Sunday afternoon in Wilkes-Barre. The ride
was planned to end at Konefals Grove in the Chase section of Jackson Township with a picnic, live music and other
activities.
KINGSTON The head of the
Luzerne County Transportation
Authority and its solicitor on
Monday responded to allega-
tions of a cover-up of sexual ha-
rassment of a bus driver andpad-
ding ridership numbers to in-
crease government funding.
Executive Director Stanley
StrelishandSolicitor JosephBla-
zosek said in a joint written
statement that the authority ful-
ly investigated the alleged inci-
dent of sexual harassment and
concluded the employee who
reported the incident requested
that the Executive Director not
take any personnel action.
County Councilman Edward
Brominski said at a July17 coun-
cil meeting that he spoke with
two bus drivers, a passenger and
a present and former authority
boardmember about drivers log-
ging ghost riders.
On Thursday, board member
Patrick Conway confirmed he
spoke with Brominski and driv-
ers about the alleged number
padding. He also said former
board members told him a fe-
male driver was groped by a su-
pervisor last year and the super-
visor received two suspensions.
He said the incident should have
been reported to the police.
Strelish and Blazosek said
Conwaydidnot raiseeither issue
at any board meeting. But before
one meeting began, Conway
made some reference to sexual
harassment but was told by staff
and board members who heard
his comment that there was a full
and complete investigation
and appropriate actions were
taken. They said Conway never
requested related documents or
more information.
Strelish and Blazosek said a
federal official in June told them
Conway had made accusations
directed at the authority claim-
ing that he needed to investigate
his accusations.
They recommended to board
Chairman Paul Maher that the
entire board and staff fully ad-
dress the accusations with Con-
way at the June 26 meeting, but
Conway did not attend it.
Strelish and Blazosek said the
incident occurred three years
ago and, until Conway made his
statements, no one, including
the alleged victim, brought any
further issues, concerns or com-
plaint to the executive director
or board. They also said a union
provides eachemployee withfull
representation and the alleged
victim had full access to the re-
sources of the union.
They said they hope the mat-
ter can be fully addressed at the
next board meeting and Con-
ways concerns placed in proper
focus and perspective to assure
the public that the authority
has acted properly with person-
nel matters and continues to
provide safe and effective mass
transit bus service without the
need for ghost passengers.
Conway did not immediately
return a call seeking comment.

Writer wants fewer guns
in the hands of citizens
I
recently received a letter from Con-
gressman Lou Barletta telling me of his
support for the National Right-to-Carry
Reciprocity Act, which would enable con-
cealed-weapon permit holders to travel
with a concealed weapon outside their
home states. This is just what the country
needs: more guns on the streets and more
stand-your-ground laws.
Then we can have real Western shoo-
touts after fender benders when drivers get
into an argument over who caused the
accident and one of them feels threatened.
Lou, we need fewer guns on the street,
not more.

Property tax legislation
seen as fair and sensible
A
s many taxpayers might have heard or
read, there is a movement afoot in
Pennsylvania to eliminate the ultra-
regressive school property tax in favor of
an increase in the personal income tax and
the sales tax.
The legislation being strongly consid-
ered, known as the Property Tax Independ-
ence Act (House Bill 1776/Senate Bill
1400), was recently voted down in commit-
tee. But it has a strong chance of reappear-
ing in the near future and possibly making
it to the floor of the House for a full up-
down vote.
In its current form, this bill would elim-
inate the local school property tax, which
funds about 57 percent of education, in
favor of increasing the personal income tax
from 3 percent to 4 percent, as well as
raising the state sales tax from 6 percent to
7 percent. It also would expand the goods
and services on which sales tax is collect-
ed.
How would this affect the average prop-
erty owner?
Since property owners pay a dispropor-
tionately large share to fund education, the
vast majority would end up with a lot more
money in their pockets to spend as they
see fit and to help stimulate the economy.
Paying the cost of education would be
more evenly spread out among all the
commonwealths residents. First-time
homebuyers would not be burdened with
exorbitant escrow payments, and senior
citizens would not fear losing their homes
to foreclosure because they cant afford
spiraling school tax bills.
Most important, schools across the state
would be funded by a single source (the
state itself) and therefore all schools would
be guaranteed an equal share of funding
based on student population. No more
disparities based on stagnant tax bases or
rural areas.
Also, this new method of funding is
fairer to everyone because its based direct-
ly on a persons ability to pay based on
their family income, unlike the property
tax.
There is a website you can visit to calcu-
late exactly how much you would save
under this plan: www.ptcc.us/
pfpfcalc.htm.
I encourage all property owners to visit
it, do the math and then get busy contact-
ing your legislators, urging them to enact
this fair and sensible law. The future of our
states education system and economic
well-being are hanging in the balance.

Pet lover welcomes
new hospital in Kingston
A
blessing is on the way. The report
about a state-of-the-art pet hospital
opening in Kingston couldnt be better
news.
I dont know all the hospitals and vets in
the area; I am sure there are some very
goods ones and some that are in it only for
financial gain. I had an experience with the
latter. In the last six months I have talked
to several dozen broken-hearted and dis-
illusioned pet lovers with horror stories.
On advice of counsel, we have to tempo-
rarily postpone the protest.
Like people who have to go to Philadel-
phia and Baltimore, our pets should not
have to leave the area to be treated. God
bless all of our pets.

Hispanics shouldnt get
affirmative action status
A
ffirmative action is inappropriately
granted to Hispanics, to women and to
the children of successful black people.
Likewise, that same status is inappropri-
ately denied to single, healthy, white hete-
rosexual American males who dont have
children.
The original purpose of affirmative ac-
tion was to compensate black people for
the cumulative negative socioeconomic
effects of having been born to an ancestry
of slaves. The intent was to compensate
Americans for having been denied the
American dream. It was never the purpose
of affirmative action to give Hispanics and
other immigrants from Latin America a
helping hand in attaining the American
dream.
What is more, it is doubtful that most
Hispanics can even trace their bio-political
lineage back to ancestors who were held as
black American slaves.
Most Hispanics and other Latin Amer-
icans can likely trace their bio-political
lineage back to the Spanish empire, the
other European empires that established
colonies in Central and South America, or
to the indigenous peoples of South Amer-
ica. All of those empires held slaves. The
Spanish empire in particular traveled
around South America hunting for slaves,
gold and political power over others.
The descendants of those European
empires later fought against the U.S. mil-
itary in the Spanish-American War, the
Mexican-American War and the proxy
wars. Throughout the entirety of this histo-
ry, Hispanics and other Latin Americans
shot at and killed U.S. soldiers.
It is therefore a lie and a financial fraud
for the biological descendants of enemy
soldiers who fought against U.S. regiments
to come to the United States and claim
affirmative action status.
Finally, organizations such as the Amer-
ican Civil Liberties Union and the South-
ern Poverty Law Center, as well as our
own would-be (if they could be) liberal
sociopolitical experts and talking heads
of Northeastern Pennsylvania news, will
claim that there is no such thing as a bio-
political lineage. They will assert that to
even suggest such a thing is both wrong
and racist.
Yet, if their truly is no such thing as a
predetermined bio-political circumstance,
then why are Hispanics and other Latin
Americans granted affirmative action sta-
tus for everything from U.S. social ser-
vices, to U.S. education, to U.S. employ-
ment? Isnt it racist and wrong to cate-
gorize people based on their biological
lineage?

horror and grief of 12
murders in a darkened
Colorado movie thea-
ter, we felt tired: tiredof the argu-
ment we already could hear
about the issue of guns in this
country. Weve heard the argu-
ment endlessly, prompted by
both everyday violence and
spectacular mass shootings at
least 20 major events
since 2007. We wont
grace it with the term
debate because
there is no debate;
there are just sides.
Maybe the two

Were not against guns or the
Second Amendment. But we are
against howthegunlobbyandits
supporters have distorted the
Second Amendment not as a
freedom for a citizen to own a
gun, but as permission to own as
many guns as he or she wants.
Reasonable limits or controls on
stockpiling firearms, for whatev-
er reason, become curtailments
of precious rights and free-
doms.
So James Holmes reportedly
was abletobuyfour guns, includ-
ing an assault rifle, in two
months. No one batted an eye.
He was able to order 6,000
rounds of ammuni-
tion, some withex-
pedited delivery.
No one batted an
eye. He bought
high-capacity mag-
azines that would
let him get off 60
shots a minute. No
one batted an eye.
It is clear we
have to stop thinking of the gun
issue in such monolithic terms
and get more specific.
For example, banningthe type
of assault rifle AR-15 and
high-capacity magazine that
Holmes allegedly used. Such a
weapon ban was enacted in1994
andexpiredin2004. Congresslet
it expire.
Also, a one-gun-a-month law,
now current in just three states,
could slow down the rapid accu-
mulation of deadly weapons. It
might not make a difference in
the end, but it could.

H-OH, THERES big

God-fearing, hard-

stand for it much longer.
Not in their wholesome com-
munity.
The police chief, whom the
children idolized and the adults
admired for decades, seemingly
turned out to be a flawed guy
who did not apply the lawto his
own life. The chief reportedly
decided his small-town neigh-
borsdidnt payhimabigenough
salary to serve and protect, so
he would scam and collect to
boost his income. Nowthe good
people are out a lot of tax dol-
lars.
Andas for their trust, well, its
nearly shot.
The longtime judges who
presided over Mayberrys cases
eventually tossed ethics out the
courthousewindow; it got inthe
way of their pursuit of wealth
and the lifestyles to which they
felt entitled: yachts and man-
sions and family members who
knew only instant gratification.
Justice was just another victim
of their scheming.
Mayberrys mayor, mean-
while, did as he pleased for
years. He helped himself to the
peoples property and thumbed
his nose at those outside his in-
ner circle, engendering disbelief
among many, disdain from
some.
The woman at Mayberrys
charity, where sick and dying
children revealed their wishes,
connived to make her own
dreams come true. She stole the
cash and went to Disney. The
treasurer of Mayberrys youth
sports league helped himself to
donations, too. As for Mayber-
rys fire chief, that fellow is per-
petually in hot water.
Yes, wholesome Mayberry

many of the good, God-fearing,
hardworking people remember
it. Theres been a breakdown of

SANCTIONS SLAMPENN STATE
Tom Pugh will still wear his
Penn State class ring proudly.
It is a sad day for Penn State
football and a sadder day for the
university, Pugh, of Hunlock
Creek, said. But I have nothing
but pride for my education and
the education of my four chil-
dren.
Pugh, his three daughters and
son graduated from Penn State.
Pugh says its difficult to accept
what has happened in Happy Val-
ley.
We all do not want to believe
that about Joe (Paterno), but it is
what it is, Pugh said. We all
should consider what we would
have done in the same situation.
Ive seen the online comments,
and its good to knowthat we live
in a community of righteous,
morally perfect people.
Penn State fans are trying to
come to grips with the devasta-
tion of not just their beloved Nit-
tany Lions and the reputation of
their iconic coach Paterno, but
the university and all of its stu-
dents and athletes.
Jim Brozena said he and his
wife, Jackie, of West Pittston, will
continue to attend Penn State
games.
Imsure it will be much differ-
ent for God knows how many
years, he said. But we all have
to move forward.
And Brozena quickly noted
that Penn State football had not
committed any NCAA recruiting
violations.
The sad part is this will not
just adversely affect the football
team, but all other programs es-
pecially womens sports. Football
made a lot of money andfinanced
a lot of the other sports on cam-
pus.
Jackie Brozena, a Penn State
alumna, said Nittany Lion fans
are first concerned with the vic-
tims of Sandusky. With that said,
some punishments were in order
for those responsible.
Two of the principals in the
case administrators TimCurley
and Gary Schultz have yet to be
tried. Many Penn State fans feel
theentirestoryof what happened
and who was most responsible
for the cover-up is yet to be told.
This was more a failure of ad-
ministration than it was of the
football program, Jackie Broze-
na said.
Punishment a bit heavy
Willard Kresge of Bear Creek
Township and a graduate of Penn
State Class of 1966 ran unsuc-
cessfully for the Penn State
Board of Trustees.
Kresge said what the NCAA
didto chastise the university is a
bit heavy. He doesnt deny there
was a cover-up, and he says Penn
State must pay for its faults. He
agrees it is appropriate to bar
Penn State from future bowl
game appearances for a time to
penalize the school financially.
Andhe agrees the fine imposedis
appropriate, but a bit high.
The football program sup-
ports almost exclusively over 800
student athletes in 30 sport
teams fromfencingtobadminton
Pride remains strong among Penn Staters
Opinions on NCAA sanctions
vary, but local PSU grads and
fans are as enthused as ever.

Penn State Wilkes-Barre students said
theNCAAs sanctions announcedMonday
disappointed and angered them.
Junior psychology major Fred Orlando,
20, of Swoyersville, said he is outraged
over the universitys complacent attitude
over NCAAs harsh punishment.
I thinkwecouldvedonealot morebar-
gaining, but the administration just wants
toget past this, thinkingit couldbeworse.
But we are just shy of
the worst, he said.
They think theyre
hurting the players, but
theyre hurting past,
present and prospective
students.
I think for a while
people will want to es-
trange themselves from
Penn State, but we will
come back stronger
than ever, he added.
Junior Laura Mann,
20, of Middletown, N.Y.,
agrees.
I think the board of
trustees should have
had more say instead of
just signing off on it
without anydiscussionsaidMann, whois
majoring in administration of justice.
I think theyre punishing the wrong
people. Theygot ridof thepeoplewhodid
the harm. Face it: Sanduskys inprison, he
is not getting out, she added.
Added civil engineering student Ray
DeArmitt, 20, of Harding: I dont really
see howNCAAcan demand all that.
While disappointed, senior Kate Lewis,
of Canadensis, anadministrationof justice
major, said the terms of the sanction were
fair, given the crime.
Honestly, as a student I amdisappoint-
ed in our football team being stunted for
the next five years, but I agree with the
monetary intentions because it will insure
that this never happens again. This is
something that we as Penn State culture
need to understand and move forward, so
that it doesnt just sweep under the rug,
she said.
Accounting major Meghan Langan, of
Trucksville, said what bothers her the
most are sanctions on the football pro-
gram.
I get that they want to help kids to
makeit seemlikeweresupportingabused
kids, but to make the whole football team
pay is ridiculous. Those wins happened
back then, and for themto take that away
from us is unreasonable. Those players
probably feel so devastated right now.
While Langan chose Penn State for its
academics as opposedtothefootball repu-
tation, she admits that if she were a senior
in high school now, Penn State probably
would not be her first pick.
The scandal kind of gives it a bad
name, but its one man, not the entire
school. Either way, Ill still gotoPennstate
loud and proud, said Langan.

NEW YORK The $60 million
fine levied on Penn State by the
NCAA doesnt look so big next to the
scale of the athletic departments fi-
nances.
Penn State plans to pay the fine,
part of sanctions announced Monday
over the child sexual abuse scandal,
in five annual installments of $12 mil-
lion.
The Penn State athletic depart-
ment had more than $116 million in
revenue to more than $84 million in
expenses for the 2010-11 school year,
according to data reported by the
school totheU.S. Department of Edu-
cation. The expenses dont include
debt service or capital expenditures.
Penn State wont be able to save
money by making cuts in other
sports. The NCAA specifically pro-
hibited that as part of the puni-
shment.
Instead of simply cutting costs, the
athletic department can make up for
any shortfalls in another way: raising
money.
Major college athletic departments
receive significant financial support
frombooster clubs. The Nittany Lion
Club took in more than $82 million
for the 2011 fiscal year, according to
its annual report. That includes $34
million in special gifts for facilities.
Its annual fund brought in $17 mil-
lion, and donations for suites and
club seats at Beaver Stadium totaled
$12 million.
There were 50 contributors who
gave at least $20,000 each.
Bob Harrison, Class of 1962, has
donated more than $250,000 to Penn
State in his life. Frustrated that the
NCAAbased its sanctions on what he
considers a deeply flawed Freeh re-
port, Harrisons support for the
school and the athletic department
has not wavered. And he believes hes
not the only booster who feels that
way.
I would say a high percentage sup-
porting the athletic programwill con-
tinue to, said Harrison, who worked
for Goldman Sachs for 28 years.
The reduction in football scholar-
ships handed down by the NCAAwill
save the athletic program some. The
accompanying bowl ban could also
reduce costs, because schools often
lose money on lower-level bowls.
At Penn State, the mens basketball
team had profits of nearly $5 million
in 2010-11, according to the Depart-
ment of Educationreport. Teams oth-
er than football and mens basketball
had about $23 million in expenses,
and the athletic department spent an-
other $36.5 million on expenses not
allocated to a particular sport. Foot-
ball cost $19.5 million.
Of course, football revenue could
lag if the team struggles badly on the
field as a result of the sanctions, and
ticket sales decrease.
Penn State received more than
$208 million in donations for the fis-
cal year that just ended, the second-
highest total in school history.

This year, withthe vauntedprogramsanctionedwithNCAApenalties that will
hamper it for years tocome, Deets believes it will bea goodSaturdayif onebus is
chartered per game.
Acombinationof the sour economyandthe sexual abuse scandal ledtoDeets, 84, down-
sizing his bus complement from16 to six andhoping some fans will still charter buses and
go to games.
Im not counting on it, Deets,
who owns the Mountain Top bus
charter company, said Monday. Its
gonna take some time, he added.
Ted Patton at Martz Trailways in
Wilkes-Barre said Penn State bus
trips have been declining the last
several years, but he attributed it to
rising ticket prices. Patton said the
Sanduskyscandal andtheNCAApe-
nalties will only make Nittany Lions
fans mad and more determined to
showtheir support.
The fan support will remain,
Patton said. The sad part is that so
many kids will be hurt by this and
they had nothing to do with the
scandal or the cover-up.
Patton said he doesnt know how
many Penn State bus trips Martz
will make this year. He said it de-
pends on the ticket prices.

But one local season ticketholder
says the penalties levied against
Penn State will not stop him from
being in Beaver Stadiumthis fall.
Bill Hottenstein, of Plains Town-
ship, has beena seasonticket holder
since 1984 and has eight tickets for
each home game this season. He
said that to punish the young men
now on the team, who had nothing
todowiththesexabusescandal that
occurred in the late 1990s and over
the past decade, is not fair.
Theres nobody there that had
anything to do with what Sandusky

SANCTIONS SLAMPENN STATE
Reaction to the NCAA
penalties against Penn State
It is important to knowwe are
entering a new chapter at Penn
State and making necessary
changes. We must create a cul-
ture in which people are not
afraid to speak up, management
is not compartmentalized, all are
expected to demonstrate the
highest ethical standards, and
the operating philosophy is open,
collegial, and collaborative.
Rodney Erickson
Penn State president

Today we receive a very harsh


penalty from the NCAA and as
head coach of the Nittany Lions
football program, I will do every-
thing in my power to not only
comply, but help guide the Uni-
versity forward to become a na-
tional leader in ethics, compli-
ance and operational excellence.
I knew when I accepted the posi-
tion that there would be tough
times ahead. But I amcommitted
for the long term to Penn State
and our student athletes.
Bill OBrien
Penn State football coach

We are deeply disappointed


that some of our leaders could
have turned a blind eye to such
abuse, and agree that the culture
at PennState must change. As we
move forward, todays student
athletes have a challenging road
ahead. But they will do the right
thing, as they have always done. I
am confident all of our head
coaches will come together to
make the change necessary to
drive our university forward.
David Joyner
Penn State acting athletic director

We cannot look to NCAA his-


tory to determine how to handle
circumstances so disturbing,
shocking and disappointing. As
the individuals charged with gov-
erning college sports, we have a
responsibility to act. These
events shouldserve as a call toev-
erysingleschool andathletics de-
partment to take an honest look
at its campus environment and
eradicate the sports are king
mindset that can so dramatically
cloud the judgment of educa-
tors.
Mark Emmert
NCAA president

Penn State University is a


great institution and has been a
valued member of the Big Ten
Conference for more than 20
years. Since early November
2011, it has been working very
hard to right a terrible wrong.
There is more to be done. The in-
tent of the sanctions imposed to-
day is not to destroy a great uni-
versity, but rather to seek justice
and constructively assist a mem-
ber institution with its efforts to
reform.
Big Ten Conference, council of
presidents and chancellors

Vacating wins is a hollowpun-


ishment that will be forgotten by
the time the next season begins.
Bans frombowl games have been
issuedinthe past because players
traded championship rings for
tattoos. This is not a punishment
that is equal tothehorrific crimes
that happened at Penn State.
Karen Polesir
Survivors Network of those
Abused by Priests, an advocacy
group for victims of clergy sexual
abuse

Nows atimefor us tocometo-


gether and heal. Theyve got the
criminals in jail. Those whove
passed on have to take that to
their graves with them. The rest
of us have to stay here and figure
out howto heal. I mean, its still a
great institution, its still a great
university, and its our job to
make it better.
Troy Cromwell
Wide receiver on Penn States 1986
national championship team

I also want assurance from


Penn State that no taxpayer dol-
lars will be used to pay the $60
million fine imposed on the uni-
versity today.
Tom Corbett
The Pennsylvania governor who,
as attorney general, launched the
state investigation of Jerry Sandusky
The Associated Press
IN THEIR WORDS
One of the penalties the NCAA levied
against Penn State was forcing the school
to vacate all its wins from 1998, the year
coach Joe Paterno and other top universi-
ty officials became aware of an accusation
that assistant coach Jerry Sandusky had
showered with a young boy, through 2011.
Penn State lost 112 wins, and Paternos
major college football record409victories
were reduced to 298, knocking him down
the list.
In question-and-answer form, here is a
look at what it means for victories to be
vacated.

Q: Does vacating a win mean the oppo-


nent won?
A: No. According to the NCAA, oppos-
ing teams are not granted wins, as in a for-
feit. The penalized school simply cant
claim credit for that victory. For instance,
in 2009, Penn State opened the season
with a 31-7 rout of Akron. Penn State will
lose credit for that win, but Akron cannot
claim it as a victory.

Q: What about individual player re-


cords? Does it have any implications?
A: The NCAAspecificallysaidPaternos
career record will reflect the vacated re-
cords. As for players, the NCAA has said
nothing, and no players were found at any
fault inthe case. Whenthe NCAAhas pun-
ished specific players, it has vacated indi-
vidual records, and the NCAAbylaws pro-
vide for the removal of individual records
and performances. No such actions have
been taken against in this case.

Q: Are there financial implications? Do


fans get their money back for games that,
technically, never were? Do coaches lose
pay?
A: Probably not. The NCAA has fined
Penn State $60 million, roughly equiva-
lent to a year of revenue from the football
program. The Big Ten has said Penn State
wont get its cut of bowl revenue for four
years, a loss of about $13 million more on
top of that. Nothing was said about re-
funds to fans or coaches returning their
salaries fromvacatedgames. Suchactions
have not been part of previous situations
in which schools were forced to vacate
wins.

Q: Who is now the winningest coach in


major college football?
A: The record for most major college
victories has reverted to Bobby Bowden,
whose record at Florida State, West Vir-
ginia and Samford is officially 377-129-4.
He had won 389 games, but 12 of them
were you guessed it vacated in 2010
following an academic cheating scandal.

Q: When was the last official win for


Penn State, now that all its wins since
1998 have been vacated?
A: The Nittany Lions lost the last two
games of the 1997 season, so Penn States
last official win now was Nov. 22, 1997,
when it beat Wisconsin 35-10. The quar-
terback that season was Mike McQueary,
who later served as a graduate assistant
and encountered Sandusky assaulting a
boy in the shower at the football facility in
2001. The incident was the second time
Penn State officials, including Paterno,
had been informed of Sanduskys ques-
tionable dealings with boys and didnt do
anything to stop him, according to the
Freeh Report.

Peachy Paterno ice cream
sales going to abuse work
STATE COLLEGE Penn
States popular on-campus
creamery is devoting sales of an
ice cream flavor named for Joe
Paterno to an organization that
works with the issue of child
sexual abuse.
The universitys College of
Agricultural Sciences said Mon-
day it would donate sales of
Peachy Paterno for the next
year, but it hasnt identified the
recipient yet.
Berkey Creamery has sold
Peachy Paterno since the flavor
won an ice-cream naming con-
test run by the Food Science
Club in 1987. A department
spokesman says the name will
remain one of 100 flavors the
creamery sells.
The flavor honors Paternos
work on behalf of the universi-
tys academic side.
Revenue from Berkeys ice
cream sales usually helps fund
graduate assistant and under-
graduate intern positions in the
Food Science Department.

Spanier: I was abused,
wouldnt turn blind eye
PHILADELPHIA Graham
Spanier says he wouldnt have
ignored child sexual-abuse com-
plaints as Penn States president
because he was beaten repeated-
ly as a child.
Spaniers lawyer, Peter Vaira,
tells The Associated Press that
Spanier re-
ceived regular
disciplinary
beatings by
his father, and
had to have his
nose straight-
ened several
times. Vaira
says the abuse
was never sexual.
Spanier sent a letter to Penn
State Universitys board of trust-
ees saying he would not have
turned a blind eye to the victims
of convicted child molester
Jerry Sandusky, the former
assistant football coach, because
of his own abuse history.
The letter was first reported
Monday by The Patriot-News.
A recent internal report on
the Sandusky scandal blasted
Spanier, former coach Joe Pa-
terno and others for failing to
report the abuse complaints to
authorities.

as a world-class institution.

PENN STATE BRIEFS
Spanier
to football, Kresge said. The
reduction in student athletic
scholarships will hurt a program
which is still reeling from last
year and now has to start with a
new head coach and coaching
staff.
Kresge doesnt agree with va-
cating the Penn State victories
from1998 to 2011.
Right now,
that only hurts
the legacy of
someone who
absolutely had
nothing to do
with the Sand-
usky issue and
did only what
he could have under the circum-
stances, Kresge said. I feel
what Joe truly meant when he
said I only wish I had done
more is that he should have
stayed on Curleys case until he
resolved the matter instead of
letting themcover it up. Joe was
an honorable man and would
never have covered an issue like
this up.
Pugh questioned the need to
vacate all of PennStates football
victories since the end of the
1997 season.
Imsure the NCAAwanted to
make a statement, he said. I
get the fine, and it appears it will
be used for good purposes; I un-
derstand the bowl sanctions;
and I think the scholarship cuts
are all designed to provide a
slow death for the program. I
guess it will heap more infamy
onJoe Paternoandmake sure he
never gets in the record books,
Pugh said.
Student-athletes suffer
Jackie Brozena said the com-
munity will rally around new
coach Bill OBrien and the play-
ers who have hung in there.
She said they will come out bet-
ter in the long run. I feel badly
for these student-athletes, she
said.
They came to Penn State to
play football and get an educa-
tion and nowthose goals may be
prevented because of this, and
yet they had nothing to do with
what happened, she said.
But she and her husband will
be in the stands when the Nitta-
ny Lions take the field later this
year. Loyalty runs deep, she
said. I dont believe this will se-
verely affect the support for the
team.

Report on ticket sales
According to information provided by
Penn States Office of Public Information,
there were 84,271 season tickets sold last
year. To date this year, there have been
81,876 sold. Single-game tickets in 2011av-
eraged 8,711.
Those tickets for this years games go on
sale Friday at 10 a.m. on GoPSUs-
ports.com/tickets.
One of the hardest tickets incollege foot-
ball toget yourhandsonwill likelybemuch
easier, and cheaper, Hottenstein said.
Its not going to be good for the scal-
pers, Hottensteinjoked. Theyre going to
be collecting unemployment.
Attorney Mike Hudacek, of Plymouth,
his wife, Sylvia, and son, Michael Jr.,
have been Penn State supporters for
many years. The penalties levied against
the university will not alter their sup-
port.
And Hudacek, like others interviewed,
lamented the what ifs associated with the
entire scandal.
This will have far-reaching effects
that will really hurt Penn State, Huda-
cek said. One phone call of the adminis-
trators would have prevented this whole
scandal.
The Freehreport makes it veryclear that
had administrators done what was in the
best interests of the victims and contacted
law enforcement, rather what was in the
best interests of themselves or the school
and done nothing, the school would have
come through mostly unscathed.
If that phone call was made, another
agencywouldhavedeterminedif thisSand-
usky incident was severe and worth pursu-
ing and it would have been out of Penn
States hands. Our highly educated, over-
paid administrators failed the Penn State
community, and they have to pay the
price, he said.
Hudaceksaidit is nowuptoPennState-
rstoshowtheworldwhat theyaremadeof
as life goes on. Hudacek saidall PennState
seasonticket holders he knows will contin-
ue to support the team.
Time will unravel everything; life will
go on even at Penn State, he said.
Hudacek said he expects attendance at
Beaver Stadium to drop over the next few
years.
Weve lost our legacy. Will it ever come
back? I wonder if Penn State football will
ever be as big as it was, the Plymouthresi-
dent said.
Dave Roberts, a native of Kingston who
now lives just north of Pittsburgh, said he
renewed his season ticket for 2012 and he
will attend the games.
It is what it is justifiedor not, he said.
Penn State signed a statement that they
agree with it; they will comply with the
NCAA penalties. The university will do
what it needs to do.
Roberts saidplayers will transfer, attend-
ance will drop and the caliber of football
will decline.
We knew it was coming, he said. But
its still painful.
We are Penn State
Mandy Naunczek, 34, of Scranton, walk-
edthroughseveral storesMondaymorning
in her Penn State-logoed clothes and got
stares and comments from fellow shop-
pers. But she also got a few chants of We
are, whichshe gladly completedwitha re-
turn of Penn State!
The UnionTownshipnative was bornin-
toa PennState-rabidfamily andraisedthat
way. Though she attended Bloomsburg
University, she bleeds blue and white.
Before having a child three years ago,
Naunczek attended two or three games a
year. Now, shell attend one or two, but
shedgo to more if she couldto support her
adopted team.
She said she feels awful for current stu-
dents, including offensive lineman Eric
Shrive, wholives across the street fromher
on Rundle Street.
Im still going to cheer them on, she
said, eventhoughshessad, disgusted, and
angry at Sandusky.

she said, adding her fears that the older
crowd will remain loyal while the younger
crowd might not turn out in droves.

State pride into a symbol of
shame, remaining quiet while his
former defensive coordinator and
recently-convicted sexual predator
Jerry Sandusky preyed on young
boys for more than a decade.
And Paternos the one who be-
came so swelled with power, peo-
ple feared challenging his football
program to the point where they
covered up a crime.
There is no action we can take
that will remove their pain, Em-
mert said in a televised press con-
ference.
So instead, the NCAA crippled
They paralyzed
Penn States football
program.
They pillaged its
once-storied past.
And they fouled
up any future new
coach Bill OBrien
hoped to build in his early years as
the teams new leader.
Not NCAA president Mark Em-
mert and his band of college sports
regulators.
Joe Paterno and his Penn State
cronies did all this.
If youre looking for someone to
blame for all the harsh penalties
handed down by Emmert on Mon-
day, point the finger at Penn
States late head coach.
Hes the one who turned Penn
the program Paterno built a day
after his disgraced statue was right-
fully removed from outside Beaver

Hes no longer the all-time win-

ball history, down to a record of
298-136-3 after losing 111 career
victories the NCAA forced Penn
State to vacate over the past 15
seasons, starting from 1998.
The 1998 date was selected
because thats when the first (child
abuse) incident was reported, Em-
mert said. The universitys failures
began at that point.

STATECOLLEGE Before ever
playing a down at Penn State, Eu-
gene Lewis learned that he may
never get to play in a bowl game for
the Nittany Lions.
Heavy sanctions levied by the
NCAAagainst the football
programon Monday have clouded the
future for the Wyoming Valley Confer-
ence standout.
On one hand, Lewis father said his
son will remain at Penn State.
Oh yeah, thats no question, Eugene
Lewis Sr. said Monday evening. Hes
that type of person, when hes committed
to you, hes committed to you.
Lewis former football coach at
Wyoming Valley West said, however,
that Lewis was unsure if he would trans-
fer to another school when he last heard
fromhimin the late afternoon and early
evening Monday.
Well, we were texting, so I wasnt
able to tell any emotion with him, but
Imsure hes pretty devastated, Pat
Keating said. He told me hed take a
day or two to make his decision.
Adding to the confusion was the fact
that Lewis, along with Penn State
players and coaches, were not available
for comment Monday. The football teamalso
traditionally does not allowfirst-year players
to speak to the media.
Lewis, who starred as a quarterback and
wide receiver at Valley West, arrived in State
College earlier this month and would have a
chance to see the field as a true freshman at
wideout.
If he plays immediately in 2012 and does not
use a redshirt season, however, he will not
have the opportunity to play in a bowl game
during his Penn State career. Among Penn

PHILADELPHIA Ty Wig-

a four-run rally in the ninth
inning against Francisco Rodri-
guez and lift the Philadelphia
Phillies to a 7-6 victory over
the Milwaukee Brewers on
Monday night.
The Phillies were 0-42 when
trailing after eight innings
before coming back against
Rodriguez, who replaced John
Axford as the closer last week.
With one out, Jimmy Rollins
walked, Juan Pierre singled
and Chase Utley walked to
load the bases. Ryan Howard
ripped an 0-2 pitch up the
middle to drive in a pair and
cut it to 6-5. Carlos Ruiz fol-
lowed with a line-drive hit to
left-center to tie it at 6. Hunter
Pence walked to load the bases
again.
Eric Kratz entered to run for
Howard. Wigginton followed
with a liner to left and Kratz
scored easily ahead of Ryan
Brauns off-target throw.
Rodriguez (2-5) has blown
five saves in eight tries.

Four relievers combined to
pitch the final three innings,
including Steve Cishek, who
recorded his third save in six
chances to help the Marlins
snap a five-game losing streak.
Chipper Jones hit an RBI
single in the ninth to pull the
Braves within 2-1 before Scott
Cousins made a sliding catch
in center field to rob Freddie
Freeman of a hit and end the
game.
Johnson (6-7) struck out
nine, allowed one hit and did
not walk a batter. He threw 53
of his 87 pitches for strikes.
Braves starter Mike Minor

STANDINGS/STATS
SEATTLE Ichiro Suzuki is headed
to a new team and, after all these years,
maybe a shot at playing in the World Se-
ries.
The New York Yankees acquired the
star outfielder fromthe Seattle Mariners
in a trade Monday for two young pitch-
ers.
I amgoing froma teamwiththe most
losses to a teamwith the most wins, he
said. Its hard to contain my excitement
for that reason.
The Yankees also got cash in the deal
that sent 25-year-old righties D.J. Mitch-
ell and Danny Farquhar to the last-place
Mariners. The trade was announced a
few hours before the Yankees played at
Seattle.
Moving from one clubhouse to anoth-
er, Suzuki was set to start inright fieldin
place of the injuredNickSwisher andbat
eighthfor NewYork onMonday night. It
will be the first time Suzuki started a
game batting anywhere other than the
top three spots in the lineup.
The Yankees made the trade a few
days after learning that the speedy Brett
Gardner would likely miss the rest of the
season because of an elbow problem,
and manager Joe Girardi said Suzuiki
will mostly play left field.
Were very excited with the caliber of
player we are getting. We feel that he
brings the speedelement. Hes a tremen-
dous hitter. That speed element is what
we lost when Gardy had surgery, Girar-
di said. So this is a big day for us.
Suzuki was given No. 31 because the
number he wore his entire career with
the Mariners, No. 51, has not been worn
since four-time World Series champion
Bernie Williams last played.
No. 51 is a special number to me, but
when I think about what 51means to the
Yankees, its hard for me to ask for that
number.
Mitchell made his major league debut
this season and pitched four games for
the Yankees. Farquhar made his big
league debut last year with Toronto and
was claimed last month on waivers by
the Yankees from Oakland.
The 38-year-old Suzuki had spent his
whole big league career with Seattle.
The 10-time All-Star and 10-time Gold
Glove winner is batting .261 with four
home runs, 28 RBIs and 15 stolen bases
this year.
Suzuki is a career .322 hitter, a former
AL MVP and holds the record for most
hits in a season. He had batted over .300
in every season until dipping last year.
The only thing missing on Suzukis re-
sume is an appearance in the World Se-
ries, and he may get a chance with the
Yankees. Suzuki was the AL MVP and
rookie of the year in 2001 after a stellar
career in Japan, and the Mariners reac-
hed the AL championship series that
season before losing to the Yankees.
Seattle has not been back to the playoffs
since then.
He said he hasnt played in left field
since those 2001 playoffs.

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga.
When the New York Yankees
traded for Seattles Ichiro Suzuki
on Monday, the Scranton/
Wilkes-Barre Yankees took a hit.
Already down to three starting
pitchers, SWB was reduced to
two on Monday as D.J. Mitchell
was sent to the Mariners and had
to be replaced as Mondays start-
er against Gwinnett.
Mike OConnor started on
three days rest for the Yankees,
who were going for the eight-
game season sweep of Gwinnett,
but the lefty only lasted 3
1
3 in-
nings allowing six runs on10 hits
and two walks in a10-6 loss to the
Braves at Coolray Field.
The Yankees, who fell into a
first-place tie with Pawtucket in
the International League North
Division, got out to a 1-0 lead in
the top of the second on Brandon
Lairds 10th home run of the sea-
son.
But the lead was short-lived as
Gwinnett tied it up at 1-1 in the
bottomof the second then added
runs in the next three innings.
The Braves scored three in the
third, two in the fourth and three
more in the fifth to open a 10-4
lead.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre scored
twice inthe fifthto cut the leadto
6-3 on a two-run shot from Chris
Dickerson, his second of the sea-
son. The Yankees scored three
more in the top of the eighth as
Corban Joseph doubled in a run
to highlight the scoring.
Former Scranton/Wilkes-
Barre Yankee and Red Baron Eric
Junge got the start for Gwinnett.
He lasted five innings giving up
five hits and three runs to pick up
his sixth win of the season.

GREENSBURG -- Hope Jones
had a dominating performance
on the mound and Mackayla
Quick drove in two runs as Bob
Horlacher defeated West Point
2-1 Monday to claim the state
softball 9-10 championship.
Horlacher advances to Mid-
Atlantic Region play, which be-
gins Saturday in Old Forge. Hor-
lachers first game will be
against the New York represen-
tative Sunday at 3 p.m.
Horlacher entered the bottom
of the fifth inning trailing West
Point 1-0.
But Megan Straley lead off
with a hit and Casey Coole fol-
lowed with a walk. Quick then
drove a ball to center field for a
two-run double.
It was all the runs Jones would
need. She struck out 11 in six in-
nings.
Straley finished the day 2 for
2, while Jones, Sara Kadurka,
Quick and Faith Jones all had
one hit.
Bob Horlacher finished the
state tournament with five wins,
averaging 6.6 runs per game and
allowing2.0per game. The team
scored six or more runs in each
of its first four state tournament
games. Milton scored five runs
against Horlacher in the semifi-
nal, while Horlachers remaining
opponents scored five runs total
in four games.

STROUDSBURG As Back
Mountain American exited the
Stroudsburg Little League on
Monday eliminated from the
Little League Major Baseball
state tournament manager
Steve Mathers accentuated ac-
complishments.
And there were plenty even af-
ter Dillsburgs offense erupted
and bumped off American14-6 in
the elimination bracket.
Still, the end wasnt easy.
Its tough, Mathers said. For
the last four summers I was fortu-
nate enough to manage this team
into late July, August. Four dis-
trict titles, two section titles, two
trips to states last year and this
year. Not many kids can say they
won a district title, let alone four.
They are a great bunch of kids, a
great bunch of ballplayers.
And a bunch that had the mis-
fortune of Dillsburg, out of York
County, finding its hitting groove
after struggling in its state open-
er Sunday.
Dillsburg had just two hits in a
14-0 loss to Warrick Township.
The Section 7 champ had two
hits after three batters on Mon-
day. It finished with16, including
five in a five-run fifth inning to
open a 14-4 lead.
Well, they certainly didnt get
herebecausetheycouldnt hit the
ball, Mathers said. Obviously,
thats kudos to Warricks pitch-
ers. Ive said it in the past, these
tournaments are grueling on
pitching. The further you go in
the losers bracket, the more arms
you have to throw.
Dillsburg used six pitchers on
Sunday, but just one Monday
Trent Culver. The lefty mixed
four different off-speed pitches
with a fastball to keep American
frombunchingits hits together. A
delay of about 45 minutes due to
lightning didnt derail him.
American led once, 3-2, after
two innings. J.D. Barrett had a so-
lo homer in the first after Dills-
burgstrucktwice inthe topof the
frame. Two more runs came
across in the second, one on Carl
Markowskis RBI single and the
other when David Schusters sin-
gle was misplayed in the outfield.
Christian Roberts added a solo
homer in the fourth for Ameri-
can. Chris Hadsall had an RBI
double and Barrett knocked in
another with a sacrifice fly in the
fifth.
Those runs, though, barely put
a dent in the deficit as Dillsburg
scored four times in the third and
three times in the fourth before
its big fifth inning.

States numerous penalties is a
four-year postseason ban that
runs from2012 to 2015.
Scholarship reductions that
will run through the length of his
college stay may also affect the
level of talent around him, espe-
cially in his later seasons with
the Lions. Lewis Sr. said that the
sanctions werent a surprise to
himor his son.
We were not shocked. We
were OK, Lewis Sr. said of
learning of the NCAAs deci-
sions. We already knewit
wasnt going to be easy. And it
wasnt as bad as it could have
been.
We were not shocked. Both of
us are still excited about Penn
State.
The NCAAalso announced
Monday that Penn State players
would be free to transfer to an-
other school and play right away
rather than sitting out for a sea-
son because of the sanctions.
That is an option that Lewis
was considering on Monday,
according to Keating. The coach
said he had been contacted by
roughly12-15 other college pro-
grams fromacross the country
Monday interested in recruiting
Lewis to come to their programs.
Because of the sanctions
against Penn State, the NCAA
has ruled that other schools are
permitted to recruit players
already on scholarship, provided
they first give notice to Penn
State.
Despite the turmoil that
struck the Lions in November,
Lewis had said in the past that
he never seriously considered
wavering fromhis verbal com-
mitment to Penn State. He
signed his letter of intent to play
there without incident in Febru-
ary.
Lewis Sr. said his sons com-
mitment has not changed.
He loves it. He loves Penn
State, Lewis Sr. said. He just
loves the university. He loves
Happy Valley and hes just enjoy-
ing himself.
Dont get me wrong hes
probably discouraged a little bit.
But when it comes down to it, he
looks at the big picture, not just
the right now.
But at the same time, Keat-
ing said, I feel for the fact that
he probably wouldnt get to play
in a bowl game. Thats a big
reason to go to play in college.
Its just an unfortunate in-
cident, and the kids are stuck in
the middle of it.
LEWIS
Continued fromPage 1B
found by the Freeh Report to
be involved in an institution-
wide cover-up of Sanduskys
crimes.
The four-year bowl ban
Emmert handed down means
incoming recruits from the
2012 class will have no op-
portunity to play in a post-
season game unless they take
a red-shirt season.
He said he wants the
school worrying about balanc-
ing its priorities, Not wheth-
er or not Penn State is going
to a bowl game.
Why would talented fresh-
men such as former Wyoming
Valley West star receiver Eu-
gene Lewis and Nyeem Wart-
man, a heavy-hitting lineback-
er from Valley View, stay at a
place thatll be reduced to
relative obscurity for most of
their careers? Why would
starting quarterback Matt
McGloin out of West Scran-
ton spend his final college
season driving the Nittany
Lions down a road thatll
lead to a dead end?
They couldnt answer that
immediately, muzzled by an
edict from the coaching staff
preventing current team mem-
bers from speaking about the
sanctions. But theyre free to
leave now, along with any
other Penn State player feel-
ing trapped by the penalties.
The NCAA opened the
cage and let all the Nittany
Lions loose, allowing current
team members the rare op-
portunity to transfer to anoth-
er university and play imme-
diately.
It wont be easy to find
replacements.
Penn States quota will be
reduced from 85 scholarships
to just 65 over the next four
years, and the number of
new scholarships to be award-
ed has been reduced by 10
each year. That means the
Lions will lose 40 tremen-
dously talented players.
Thatll deplete the quality
of the depth chart for at
least eight years, because
those missing scholarship
spots will have to be filled
by walk-ons.
Nobody would blame
OBrien for walking out, al-
though the new coach said
hes at Penn State for the
long haul. But he didnt sign
up for $60 million Penn State
must pay equal to one
years worth of revenue gener-
ated by the football program,
according to Emmert -- or
the five-year probationary
period the NCAA put on
Penn State.
The intent of all this, Em-
mert said, is to get the cul-
ture of Hero worship and
winning at all costs out of
college athletics.
That objective didnt bring
Penn State the feared football
ban of at least one year
known as the Death penal-
ty.
But it turns out the late
Paterno really left his old
program half-dead.

I just feel it was it was a miss
(by the NCAA), Teresa Ker-
estes said. It takes the focus off
of the victims of former Penn
State assistant coach Jerry Sand-
usky, who was convicted of 45
counts of sexual abuse of chil-
dren. I dont see how this is go-
ing to help those children.
Terry Kerestes, who received
his masters degree from Penn
State, said the fate of the football
program does not diminish his
view of the school.
Nah, this is all just garbage,
Terry said with a wave of his
hand toward the giant TV. It
doesnt change how I feel about
Penn State.
Students watching events un-
fold at the HUB had mixed feel-
ings about the sanctions, ac-
knowledging the need for them
but questioning the severity.
I think its a very steep penal-
ty and maybe not fair to punish
the current players. Something
had to be done, but these guys
were like 4 years old when those
things happened, said Anthony
Pesavento, a freshman from the
Harrisburg area who described
himself as a lifetime fan. (Foot-
ball) was definitely one of the
reasons why I came here, but I
came here for the education first
and foremost.
Employees and managers of
stores in State College did not
wish to speak on the record, con-
cerned howtheir opinions could
affect their businesses.
Generally, theywere concerned
how sanctions -- which will seri-
ously damage the football teams
on-field success -- will affect inter-
est in the team and trickle down
to the local economy.
Two such people also ex-
pressed their exhaustion of
media coverage of the Sandusky
scandal and its fallout since No-
vember and thought the NCAA
was being hypocritical in its
punishment of Penn State,
choosing to make an example of
the school to make a point.
A group called Penn Staters
for Responsible Stewardship --
which formed in the wake of in-
dictments of Jerry Sandusky,
Tim Curley and Gary Schultz in
November -- issued strong crit-
icism of the universitys Board
of Trustees on Monday.
In a statement, the group said
it was most upset at use of the
Freeh Report -- an independent
investigation commissioned by
Penn State that concluded that
university leadership covered
up reports of sexual abuse of
children -- as definitive evidence
against the school and the foot-
ball program.
"To rely upon such a report to
issue punishment is beyond reck-
less, and should not be supported
in any way by the leadership of
Penn State," the group said. "By
agreeing to these sanctions, every
single member of the Penn State
Board of Trustees has blatantly
failed in their fiduciary responsib-
ilities to the university. With each
passing hour, we are gaining addi-
tional alumni support in our de-
mand to have them resign imme-
diately."
Onetrustee, the newly elected
Anthony Lubrano, however,
said that the board was not con-
sulted before the university
agreed to the NCAAs sanctions.
My view is that we rolled
over and played dead, Lubrano
told USA Today.
The consent decree that final-
ized the sanctions was signed
only by Penn State President
Rodney Erickson and Emmert.
Another recent addition to
the board, former Penn State
football player AdamTaliaferro,
was upset that the NCAA vacat-
ed Penn States wins from the
past 14 seasons. Taliaferro
played during that span, suffer-
ing a life-threatening spinal
cord injury in a game in 2000.
NCAA says games didnt ex-
ist, Taliaferro posted on his
Twitter account. I got the met-
al plate in my neck to prove it. I
almost died playing for PSU.
Punishment or healing?
were met with similar silence.
An ESPN report said that
players were instructed within
that meeting not to speak with
members of the media.
A small handful of players
took to the internet to address
the punishments, which include
a four-year postseason ban and a
drastic reduction in scholar-
ships. Most vocal was tight end
Garry Gilliam, a projected start-
er for 2012, who wrote on his
Twitter account that he would
not be leaving Penn State.
The NCAA has ruled that
PennState players will be able to
transfer toother schools without
penalty and can play immediate-
ly. Likewise, the Big Ten is waiv-
ing a restriction that prevented
players from transferring within
the conference and still receiv-
ing a scholarship.
In a statement, the Penn State
Football Lettermans Club took
issue with the NCAA President
Mark Emmerts assertion that a
football-first culture at the
school created an imbalance be-
tween athletics and academics,
calling it baseless and intellec-
tually dishonest.
It is with great pride that the
members of our club know that
we have done it the right way for
several decades, the group said,
and we will not allow Dr. Em-
merts careless remarks to tarnish
the legacy of Penn State football.
On campus and in downtown
State College, students, alumni
and local businesses reacted
with frustration and anger --
some of it directed at the NCAA
and some of it directed at Penn
States leadership. Terry and Te-
resa Kerestes, dressed in Penn
State gear and visiting Terrys al-
ma mater while on vacation,
stopped briefly by the big-screen
TV at the HUB student union to
watch coverage of the situation.

STATE COLLEGE -- One
Penn State student, surveying
the damage to her school from
her internship in Mexico City,
decided to try to make an
impact from 2,500 miles away.
Four hours after the NCAA
dropped the hammer on Penn
State, Dani Lichliter took to
Facebook to rally fellow stu-
dents, alumni and fans into
showing their support for the
football team for the season
opener on Sept. 1 against Ohio
at Beaver Stadium.
Titling the event Louder
and Prouder: 9/1/12, Lichli-
ter, a California native entering
her senior year, asked people
to please use this event to
share your love for Penn State.
Share your favorite football
memories and all the positive
things that make this the only
university you would ever want
to attend. Please do not use
this as a place to criticize the
decisions of others, namely the
NCAA, or to complain about
what has happened.
By Monday evening, 4,000
people had already responded
favorably to invitations to at-
tend the event.
Penn State is my home and
where I really grew up, Lichli-
ter wrote in an email. I want-
ed to create an event that
would be completely positive
and full of Penn State love. ...
When I made the event, I
sort of had an inkling that it
would become extremely pop-
ular. Penn Staters love their
school more than you could
possibly imagine and finding
ways to come together and
support it have proven them-
selves to be very beneficial in
times like these. I hope that
the event will be used to share
positive memories and com-
ments about Penn State be-
cause we are so much more
than the few administrators
that let us down.
We are so much more than
the football program. We are
96,000 strong and they cant
take away the memories, the
academics, the charity, and the
people that make up Penn
State.
Paterno fallout
On any other day in NCAA
history, a new name atop the
all-time college football wins
list would be seismic news.
On Monday, Joe Paternos
fall from the No. 1 spot was
almost a footnote in the string
of penalties the NCAA im-
posed on Penn State football.
The program was forced to
vacate all wins from 1998-2011,
giving Paterno 298 official
victories instead of the Divi-
sion I record 409 he had at the
time of his firing in November.
Late Grambling coach Eddie
Robinson (408 wins) will re-
gain the Division I crown,
while Bobby Bowden, who
retired from Florida State after
the 2009 season, is again atop
the list for major (FBS) pro-
grams.
The decision prompted an
outcry from the family of the
former coach, who died in
January, and sadness from
people on campus.
Theyre completely dis-
regarding Joe and his whole
legacy, said Nate Fuentes, a
Penn State freshman who at-
tended State College High
School. Theyre just taking
everything from it. Its like
piling on. Hes turning in his
grave right now because
theyre taking everything he
stood for.
I know he did wrong. I
know that. He should have
done more. Theyre taking
everything away from him. I
dont think its fair.
Earlier this month, Paterno
was judged to have been part
of a cover-up by the Freeh
Report, an investigation com-
missioned by Penn State to
determine why allegations of
child abuse went unreported
by the school for years.
In response, Paternos statue
outside of Beaver Stadium was
removed on Sunday morning.
Other symbols of Paterno,
however, remain on campus.
Paterno Library, built with
funding from the late coach
and his wife Sue, will keep its
name. And Penn States
Creamery will continue to sell
Peachy Paterno ice cream,
donating proceeds from sales
of the flavor to an organization
that works with child abuse,
according to The Associated
Press.
Another painful coincidence
for Penn State fans -- in the
view of the NCAA, the Nittany
Lions last win now came on
Nov. 22, 1997, against Wiscon-
sin. The quarterback in that
game was Mike McQueary,
who would become a key wit-
ness against Sandusky and was
the one to initially report alle-
gations of abuse to Paterno in
2001.
Legal concerns
The Michael L. Buckner Law
Firm, which follows collegiate
and high school sports cases,
again raised objections Mon-
day to the NCAAs decision to
impose sanctions without fol-
lowing its typical process.
The NCAAs actions, no
matter how noble and justified
to address the egregious be-
havior in the Penn State case,
have charted an unprecedented
course of action and created a
slippery slope for future in-
cidents, the firm said in a
statement.
The firm argued that the
NCAA violated its bylaws by
granting President Mark Em-
mert what amounted to emer-
gency authority to punish Penn
State in lieu of traditional
enforcement procedures.
We are extremely con-
cerned about the process the
NCAA utilized to issue its
sanctions, the firm said. We
conclude (these) issues would
be best left in the expert hands
of the criminal and civil
courts, the federal Depart-
ments of Justice and Educa-
tion, the Pennsylvania General
Assembly and the relevant
accrediting agencies.
PSU fans will be

A sign and a small figure of former Penn State football coach Joe
Paterno hangs at Gate A of Beaver stadium on the Penn State
University main campus in State College on Monday. The NCAA
announced sanctions against the Penn State University football
program on Monday as a result of the child sexual abuse case of
former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
N O T E S
Penn State football players
may have been instructed not to
speak with the media but the
teams alumni base expressed
their displeasure Monday with
the NCAAs sanctions on the
program.
Several notable alums moved
to social media to express their
dismay with the decision.
Adam Taliaferro took the
news of vacated wins particular-
ly hard. The former Nittany Li-
on cornerback suffered a para-
lyzing spinal cord injury during
a game in 2000.
Taliaferro said on his Twitter
account, NCAA says games
didnt exist..I got the metal
plate in my neck to prove it di-
d..I almost died playing 4 PSU-
..punishment or healing?!?
Former Bishop Hoban and
Meyers football coach Dwayne
Downing has been emotionally
involved in the Jerry Sandusky
child abuse scandal for the past
eight months. Downing, who
played for Joe Paterno as a de-
fensive back on the 1986 nation-
al championship-winning team,
said he still feels horrible
about the abuse and knew se-
vere punishment was on the ho-
rizon for the university.
My initial reaction was
shock, Downing said. I knew
something was certainly going
to happen to the program. It
was only inevitable something
was going to be done. The
NCAA sure did make a state-
ment.
Citing the schools athletic
reputation, Downing a 1988
Penn State graduate said the
past eight months serves as a
black eye on the program, not
the university.
Younger football alumni were
more vehement in their dissent.
Former Penn State defensive
end and recent Minnesota Vik-
ings signee Eric Latimore said
on his Twitter account, Oh and
yea the 60+ million is goin to
child abuse lol? Believe that
right?
Devon Still, a recent Penn
State graduate and Cincinnati
Bengals second-round pick,
said on his Twitter account,
Lost as to how taking away
wins solves anything...especial-
ly wen the ppl being punished
did nothing wrong.
Downing said that he thought
the NCAAs decision was too
premature.
Lets be honest here in no
way do we want to minimize
what happened, he prefaced.
Its just disturbing to think
about and it makes it hard to
talk about some of these things.
But it would be nice to see all
of the information before the
sanctions was imposed. Im not
trying to make excuses what
he did was the most heinous
crime imaginable.
Downing said that he thought
the decision should have been
made after athletic director Tim
Curley and former school presi-
dent Graham Spaniers trial.
I understand making that
call; I dont want to say there is a
rush to judgment, Downing
said. Its tough having the
NCAA announcing that deci-
sion while two cases are still in
court.
Downing and other football
alumni are upset, he said, that
Penn State student-athletes will
be denied some athletic and
academic opportunities.
Its a little disheartening,
Downing said. We feel bad for
the kids; some of themwere just
in elementary school when
these events happened.
I think theyll continue to at-
tract the best and brightest.
Honestly, we all just want to
move on.
He said that it wont be diffi-
cult to watch Penn State during
the four-year bowl ban and
scholarship reduction. Beaver
Stadium will rally behind the
coach Bill OBrien and team
even though it might be diffi-
cult.
Obviously, we would like to
be competitive but well get to
see what a great coach Bill
OBrien is, Downing noted. I
expect the community, stu-
dents, and alumni to come out
and support them. I think youll
see what Penn State is all
about.
Current Penn State football
players were granted blanket
permission to transfer to a new
school and play immediately.
Downing said that it will be ve-
ry tempting for some of the
Penn States top athletes to
stick in State College.
Its tough; obviously, you
kind of have to separate the
blue-chip recruits, Downing
said. Lets fact it: recruiting is a
very competitive game. Some
will think staying will be a chal-
lenge worth taking. For some
four- or five-star recruits, its go-
ing to be a harder decision to
make. But they still play in the
Big Ten, have a world-class
coach, and are going to get a
great education. Penn State still
has a lot to offer even though
things may seem a little grim
right now.
If you remove those three or
four people responsible, Penn
State is a great place to play.
Alumni displeased with sanctions
Many state their support for
Penn State and its football
program via social media.
By JAY MONAHAN
For The Times Leader
If you remove those three or four
people responsible, Penn State is a
great place to play.
Dwayne Downing
Former area HS coach
It wasnt so much shock as
sympathy.
Because while local high
school coaches believe the
NCAA was justified in handing
down sanctions to Penn State,
theyre concerned the wrong
people were punished.
I dont agree with hurting the
current players, said Hanover
Area coach Ron Hummer, a long-
time Penn State fan. Theyre
punishing the wrong people, I
think. I just cant see how the
NCAAcan come in and say to the
kids theyre being punished for
something they didnt do.
Along with a four-year bowl
ban, Penn State suffered the loss
of 20 scholarships per season
over the next four years, along
with a five-year probationary pe-
riod among the sanctions hand-
ed down by the NCAA. And if
such a scenario makes them re-
consider playing for Penn State,
current players will be allowed to
transfer to other institutions
without sitting out the normally-
mandatory one season as a penal-
ty.
Its extremely shocking,
Wyoming Valley West coach Pat
Keating said. It think its going
to be at least a decade until they
get back to where they want to be
as a football program.
Those consequences were
handed down by the NCAA on
Monday for the schools role ac-
cording the recently-released
Freeh Report in covering up the
sexual abuse of young boys
against former Penn State defen-
sive coordinator Jerry Sandusky,
who was convicted of 45 charges
last month.
They put the wood to Penn
State, said veteran Wyoming
Valley Conference coach George
Curry, who will return to Ber-
wick this season. They (Penn
State leaders) blew it in this re-
spect: youre not dealing with a
player violation, recruiting viola-
tion, youre dealing with a child
molester here.
I think they deserve what
they got.
Yet, some coaches believe the
innocent kids currently playing
football at Penn State along
with new head coach and former
New England Patriots offensive
coordinator Bill OBrien and his
staff will be hurt most by the
sanctions.
Im a little surprised at the se-
verity of the sanctions on the
football program itself, GAR
coach Paul Wiedlich Jr. said. It
was more of an institutional
problem. I feel bad for the kids
who are there and the newcoach-
ing staff. They had nothing to do
with what happened in the past.
Mostly, everyones more con-
cerned with Penn States future.
With incoming freshmen in-
cluding linebacker Nyeem Wart-
man from Valley View and for-
mer Wyoming Valley West star
Eugene Lewis facing the pros-
pect of playing a whole college
career without a bowl game, itll
be interesting to see how many
players remain at Penn State.
Weve been texting a lot to-
day. Its been a really crazy day,
said Keating of his communica-
tion with Lewis. Alot of coaches
from universities all over the
country have been contacting
him, trying to see where he
stands. He may knowalready. He
may take a day or two to digest
everything and make a decision
from there.
Lewis father, the Rev. Eugene
Lewis, told The Times Leader
his son plans to honor his com-
mitment to Penn State.
Curry hopes they all do.
I just hope the players dont
leave, Curry said. Theyre play-
ing for a good coach and hes an
NFL guy. They can still win.
Theyve got enough talent to tide
themover. Theyre not going to a
bowl game.
But if theyre not going to a
BCS game, there are kids who
would rather be home for Christ-
mas.

COLLEGE FOOBALL
Irish QB Rees admits
guilt, apologizes
SOUTH BEND, Ind. Quar-
terback Tommy Rees is apol-
ogizing to the police, Notre
Dame and fans after pleading
guilty to misdemeanor resisting
law enforcement and illegal
consumption of alcohol by a
minor.
Reese issued a statement after
entering his guilty pleas Mon-
day. He says he accepts full
responsibility for his actions
May 3 when he was arrested
outside an off-campus party in
South Bend, Ind.
Under a plea agreement, the
20-year-old junior quarterback
will perform 50 hours of com-
munity service and write a let-
ter of apology to police. He also
received a 30-day suspended jail
sentence and 11 months of pro-
bation.
Prosecutors have agreed to
dismiss one count of resisting
law enforcement and a battery
count.
Reese says hes dedicated to
winning back the trust and
confidence of the people he has
disappointed.
OLYMPICS
NBCs Costas says he
plans to honor Israelis
NEW YORK NBCs Bob
Costas says he plans his own
commemoration of Israelis
killed during the Olympics in
Munich 40 years ago, despite
the refusal by Olympic author-
ities to do so during Fridays
opening ceremony from Lon-
don.
Costas told the Hollywood
Reporter that he intends to note
the International Olympic Com-
mittees decision when Israeli
athletes enter the stadium Fri-
day. He said many people find
that denial more than puzzling
but insensitive.
Costas denied to talk about
his plans in more detail, and an
NBC Sports spokesman said
Monday that production plans
for the opening ceremony are
still being finalized.

Israeli athletes and coaches
during an attack on the Olympic

ended in a double play to home
and first; a strikeout ended the
threat.
Perhaps the biggest play for
Tunkhannock came in the bot-
tom of the seventh. Alex Zaner
laced a one-out single to score
Lance Sherrytocut Miltons lead
to 3-2. An error put Tunkhan-
nock runners on second and
third with one out. Thats when
Ryan Goodwin hit a flyball to
right. Miltons Michael Jacobs
made the catch and fired home
to nab Jeremy Lee attempting to
score the potential tying run for
a double play. It was the second
time in two games Jacobs
gunned down a runner at home
trying to score.
We probably were a little
overzealous on that (play) but
thats baseball, Zaner noted.
You take your shot and we just
hurt ourselves having the bases
loaded and not being able to get
a run or two in and that took a
little wind out of our sails.
Reynaldo Adames, Miltons
starter contributed to Tunkhan-
nocks lackadaisical offense by
SCRANTON Tunkhannock
had plenty of chances during
Mondays Region 5 Tournament
winners bracket final against
Milton.
It was capitalizing on the op-
portunities that gave Tunkhan-
nock problems.
The Wyoming Valley Ameri-
can Legion League runner-up
had 14 baserunners during the
game, but nine were left on base
and three were erased on double
plays in a 4-2 loss to Milton at
Connell Park.
That teams a great team.
They deserved to win, Tunk-
hannock manager Scott Zaner
said. We put the ball in play and
they made the plays they had to
make. I think were going to see
them again. I feel confident. We
got to take it one day at a time.
Tunkhannock (15-10) is still
alive in the double-elimination
event and now must win three
games in two days to win its first
regional championship. That
quest begins today at 11 a.m.
with a game against Towanda,
the Bradford/Tioga League
champion. Milton, the only un-
beaten remaining in the event,
plays Greater Pittston (18-6) to-
day at 2:30 p.m.
Even though Milton has al-
ready playedGPinthe event, the
teams will meet today because
the West Branch champion has
already played the three remain-
ing teams but GP was the first.
Milton has to lose twice to not
claimthe regional title. Even if it
is defeated by Greater Pittston,
Milton still moves into Wednes-
days championship game.
Theyre all quality teams.
Pittston is a Region 5 power for
years so you knowtheyre good,
Milton manager Dave Byers
said. The best thing we got go-
ing is we can lose (today) and
maybe save pitching where ev-
erybody else has to win. So thats
an advantage.
Milton (19-4) scored first in
Mondays game as Damian
Moyer stole home in the top of
the first for a 1-0 lead. Tunkhan-
nock answered in the bottom of
the second with Josh McClain
scoring on a passed ball to even
the score at 1-1. Tunkhannock
had the bases loaded with one
out, but after McClain scored
three runners were stranded.
That seemed to be a trend for
Tunkhannock.
After allowing two runs in the
top of the thirdas Miltonopened
a 3-1 lead, Tunkhannock had the
bases loadedinthe bottomof the
fourth with no outs. However, a
grounder back to the mound
makingtheright pitches whenin
trouble. The righty kept Tunk-
hannock off-balanced pitching
eight innings only giving up five
hits and 13 of the 24 outs he re-
corded didnt leave the infield.
Goodwin started the game for
Tunkhannock and he pitched all
nine innings. He was very effec-
tive striking out sevenanddidnt
walk anyone. He allowed eight
hits, but didnt get in too much
trouble as the most batters he
faced in an inning was five.
But a day after pilingup14hits
and 12 runs, the team couldnt
muster toomuchagainst a tough
Milton pitcher.

delivers to

during his
teams game
against Mil-
ton in the
Region 5
tournament
Monday in
Scranton.
SCRANTON The farther
Greater Pittston gets into the
American Legion Region 5 tour-
nament, the more likely its bats
were going to come alive.
The Greater Pittston offense
hit its strideinthethirddayof the
tournament Monday, producing
eight extra-base hits in a 17-3 vic-
tory over Green Ridge in seven
innings. Greater Pittston advanc-
es tothe fourthday of the double-
elimination tournament where it
will face Milton at 2:30 p.m. at
Connell Park in Scranton.
The Wyoming Valley Ameri-
can Legion League champions
took advantage of a thin Green
Ridge pitching staff, and scored
nine runs in the fourth inning off
No. 3 starter Daniel Navoczynski
and reliever Michael Miller.
I dont want to take anything
away fromour kids but obviously
the deeper youget intoa pitching
staff, the better youhave a chance
of whacking the ball, Greater
Pittston manager Drew Whyte
said. We whacked the ball.
Randy McDermott gave Grea-
ter Pittston a lead in the second
when he blasted a grand slam
over the right-field fence. McDer-
mott finished the game with
three hits, three runs, and seven
RBI. The Wyoming Area alum-
nus and Flagler College sopho-
more was a triple away froma cy-
cle.
Greater Pittstons Ron Musto
launched a high-towering home
run for his second in as many
days. Musto doubled twice,
scored twice, and drove in three
RBI.
McDermott and Musto were
outstanding, Whyte said. I
dont want to give up any secrets
but 1-2-3 in the lineup thats
where were getting our produc-
tion.

Wet Seal CEO ousted
Teen retailer Wet Seal Inc. an-
nounced Monday that it fired CEO
Susan McGalla without a replacement
for her as it struggles with declining
sales. In an interview, Chief Financial
Officer Steven Benrubi said that
McGallas termination was strictly due
to the financial performance of the
company. Wet Seal has locations in-
side the Wyoming Valley Mall in
Wilkes-Barre, The Mall at Steamtown,
in Scranton, and the Viewmont Mall in
Dickson City.
Stock markets plunge
Stocks have fallen for a second
straight day amid fear that Spains
government may need a bailout.
The Dow Jones industrial average
was down 101 to 12,721 at the close
Monday. Yields for U.S. government
bonds sank to record lows as traders
sought the safety of American debt.
Italys market watchdog on Monday
imposed a week-long ban on the short-
selling of financial stocks as the Milan
index plunged amid fears that if Spain
needs a bailout, Italy could be next.
The main stock index, the FTSE-
MIB, closed 2.8 percent lower after
being down by more than 5 percent in
the morning.
Mickie Ds income down
Not even McDonalds Corp. has an
iron stomach when it comes to the
global economic downturn.
The worlds largest hamburger chain
has thrived in boom and bust times by
selling cheap eats and constantly up-
dating its menu with popular items
such as fruit smoothies and snack
wraps. But the company is starting to
show signs of tear from global econom-
ic pressures, intensifying competition
and penny-pinching customers who are
eating out less often in some hard-hit
regions around the world.
The Oak Brook, Ill.-based company
said Monday that its net income fell 4
percent in the second quarter as a
strong dollar took a hit on results. Like
other U.S. companies, McDonalds is
being squeezed by unfavorable cur-
rency exchange rates. When the dollar
is rising against the other world cur-
rencies, companies that do business
internationally take a hit when convert-
ing local currencies back into the dol-
lar.
In the U.S., McDonalds said sales
rose 3.6 percent in the quarter, with
increased traffic contributing to
growth.

TOUCH-DISPLAYS
have, without a
doubt, become ex-
tremely common-
place.
Theyre utilized in
almost every new
phone and tablet, becoming increas-
ingly common in desktop displays,
and are even starting to make their
way into TVs and remote controls.
Theyre far more intuitive and flex-
ible than old-fashioned push-buttons,
and can make better use of space.
There are a few drawbacks to touch-
screens: Theyre more expensive than
old-fashioned controls, theyre more
fragile, and theyre harder to fix if and
when something does go wrong you
usually wind up having to replace the
entire device or display.
But theres another, more subtle
downside that quickly becomes appar-
ent after extended use: fingerprints.
Its a big enough problem that man-
ufacturers have gone so far as to de-
velop olio phobic displays and coat-
ings for their products to keep smudg-
es down.
Hygiene issues aside, theres some-
thing particularly annoying about
having little oblong smudges all over
a screen that youre trying to use.
But no matter how hard they try,
its a loosing battle -- when the very
act of using the device causes the
smudges in the first place, its hard to
develop an effective defense. After a
few days or weeks of use, even the
most sophisti-
cated anti-oil
coatings tend to
start to show
fingerprints.
Without those
coatings, some
devices can re-
quire constant
cleaning to keep
them smudge free.
3M Corp. has been working on a
solution to that problem, and it has
come up with a unique solution: Nat-
ural View Fingerprint Fading Screen
Protectors.
These screen protectors feature a
unique anti-fingerprint coating that
protects the screen and makes the
smudges caused by fingerprints fade
away without blurring the display.
Currently available for the Samsung
Galaxy Tab and iPad tablet devices,
the Natural View screen protectors
cost $23. While that may seem a little
on the steep side for a screen protec-
tor, given how much time I spend
trying to keep my devices free of
fingerprints and smudges, I think its
well worth the price. The fact that it
also protects the displays from
scratches and other physical damage
is an added bonus.
It would be nice if 3M also offered
the product for common models of
smartphones, or perhaps in a variety
of standard sizes. I suppose if you
really wanted to, you could always cut
down the existing tablet-sized protec-
tors to fit a smartphone.

WILKES-BARRETWP. One of the
dozens of businesses displaced by the
September flood is close to reopening,
but inalocationontheother sideof the
Susquehanna River.
That Bounce Place, a family-owned
business that has supplied indoor
bounce houses for parties as well as
walk-in visits since it opened in Ed-
wardsville in 2010, saw its Mark Plaza
building flooded in September. While
company owner and Chief Executive
Officer Larry Barnes, waited to see if
the plaza wouldbe repaired, he founda
temporary location at the Merchants
Village in Pittston Township since Oc-
tober.
Finally, stores were notified by the
Mark Plaza owner that the center
would not reopen. So Barnes searched
for a new home for his business and
found one.
Next month, That Bounce Place will
open at 925 Wilkes-Barre Township
Blvd., in the former Grand Central
store across from the Kmart on Route
309. Because of construction and the
need for some building code inspec-
tions from Wilkes-Barre Township,
there is nospecific day set for the open-
ing. Barnes said the construction part
of the project is ahead of schedule.
While the six-month period of inac-
tion and lack of communication be-
tween the Mark Plaza owner and him-
self delayedthehunt for anewlocation,
Barnes said the Route 309 location
seemedtoappear at just the right time.
The new location is better due to
more traffic backup on Route 81. This
gives That Bounce Place more expo-
sure because of the now busier road,
said Barnes.
This new building is slightly larger
than the 11,600-square-foot Edwards-
ville location. It will have eight indoor
bounce houses, three private party
rooms and a video arcade, as opposed
to the four bounce houses in the Mer-
chants Village location, which has only
one private party room. The flooding
last year also pushed That Bounce
Place into the party rental business.
Nowblow-up equipment can be rented
out to customers who want to hold
events at different locations, including
their backyard.
We planned on going in the rental
business, but the flooding quickened
our entrance into that segment of the
industry, said Barnes.
Barnes, of Nanticoke, anticipates
more business with the larger location,
andhopes this will makeupfor someof
thelost revenuecausedbytheflooding.
People have been supportive in the
past, and we appreciate that, said
Barnes. Despite the change of location,
the telephone number has remained
the same and its phones are already
ringingoff the hookwithpeople asking
about theopeningandstartingtomake
party reservations.

NEW YORK Apple is set to report
financial results for thesecondquarter to-
day. Analysts are expectingnet income of
$9.8billion. But whatever figureApplere-
ports wont reflect its true profit, because
the company hides some of it with an un-
usual tax maneuver.
Apple Inc., already the worlds most
valuable company, understates its profits
compared with other multinationals. Its
building up an overlooked asset in the
formof billionsof dollars, tuckedawayfor
tax bills it may never pay.
Taxexpertssaythecompanycouldeas-
ily eliminate these phantom tax obliga-
tions. That would boost Apples profits
for the past three years by as much $10.5
billion, according to calculations by The
Associated Press.
While investors might rejoice if Apple
suddenlyadded$10.5billiontoits profits,
unilaterally erasing a massive U.S. tax
obligation could tarnish its reputation as
a relatively responsible payer of U.S. tax-
es. Like other companies, Apple typically
keeps profits on overseas sales in over-
seas accounts.
Apple may pay some corporate income
taxes on that profit to the country where
it sells the iPad, but it minimizes these by
using various accounting moves to shift
profitstocountrieswithlowtaxrates. For
example the strategy known as Double
Irish With a Dutch Sandwich, routes
profits through Irish and Dutch subsidi-
aries and then to the Caribbean.
Where Apple does differ from other
companies is that it sets asideaportionof
these overseas profits, marking them as
subject to U.S. taxes sometime in the fu-
ture. Essentially, its sayingthis is money
that well likely have to pay U.S. federal
incometaxes on becauseweintendtore-
patriate it, says Willens.

My rainfall total
so far this sum-
mer is nearly 5"
less than what
fell to this date
last summer.
Other locations
in our area have
received a lot
more rain this
summer than
others, like up in
Wayne County
where in the
past 24 hours,
just over 2" of
rain fell. At my
place: not a
drop. Today,
there is only a
small chance of
getting a shower.
I think only
about a 20 per-
cent chance,
which means
that there is a 20
percent chance
than any one
location in the
forecast area will
get measurable
rain. Tonight and
tomorrow, I see
a zero percent
chance. The
humidity will
also drop signi-
cantly by tomor-
row.
- Tom Clark
NATIONAL FORECAST: Thunderstorms will be seen along the East Coast and Ohio Valley today with a
front. Some of these may be severe. Monsoonal moisture will be directed into the Rockies, leading to
scattered thunderstorms there. Thunderstorms will also develop along the Gulf Coast again. Hot tem-
peratures will remain in the central Plains, while cooler air moves into the Upper Midwest. Warmth
will return to much of the West.

Q: My mother was
prescribed prednisone
for a bout of bronchi-
tis, but it made her go
crazy. She stayed up
all night watching a
shopping channel,
spending more than
$15,000. Shes never had any mental
illness in the past. Why does this sort of
thing happen?
P.C., Lima, Ohio
A: Like a double-edged sword, ste-
roids like prednisone are among the
best and the worst drugs available.
More than10 million prescriptions for
steroids like prednisone are filled each
year. Psychiatric adverse effects like
your mother experienced are not as rare
as you might think. Two large studies
which analyzed many past studies
found that severe psychiatric reactions
occur in nearly 6 percent of folks, and
mild to moderate
reactions can occur in
approximately 28
percent of folks pre-
scribed steroids like
prednisone. While
some have attempted
to explain these psy-
chiatric adverse ef-
fects to a prior history
of mental illness, the
vast majority of those
affected had no such
prior history. Re-
search suggests that
the dose and duration
of the steroid are much greater risk
factors for a psychiatric adverse effect.
Doses of prednisone above 40mg/day
or methylprednisolone (Solumedrol)
above 32mg/day greatly raise the risk
of an adverse psychiatric event.
Symptoms of steroid-induced psychi-
atric illness range fromsubtle mood
changes, insomnia and memory deficits
to frank mania, delusional behavior or
depression. The exact cause isnt clear,
but its generally accepted that anything
that affects the hormonal interplay
between the hypothalamic, pituitary
and adrenal glands can result in mood
disorders. For example, syndromes
involving excess (e.g. Cushings
syndrome may be associated with anx-
iety, euphoria and psychosis) or inade-
quate cortisol production (e.g. Addi-
sons disease can produce fatigue, low
energy and symptoms consistent with
the vegetative symptoms of depression)
can have psychiatric manifestations.
Fortunately, in more than 90 percent
of cases, the adverse reaction resolves
upon a tapered discontinuation of the
steroid. For those who do not tolerate
steroid cessation and must remain on
it, mood stabilizers (e.g., Prozac, Zo-
loft, and Depakote) and antipsychotic
drugs (e.g., Seroquel) may be neces-
sary.

duce the hormone insulin. Type 2
diabetes a condition of insulin
resistance was mostly seen in
adults who became older, heavier
and less active. Today as children
have become heavier and less
active, more and more are diag-
nosed with type 2 diabetes.
Genetics is partly responsible,
says Kaufman. Moms and dads can
pass on a genetic propensity for
type 2 diabetes to their children.
But even when family history loads
the gun for diabetes, changes in
lifestyle can keep the trigger from
being pulled. Here are some ideas:
Mommas, dont let your preg-
nancies be complicated by exces-
sive weight gain. Evidence is
mounting that this can be a risk for
type 2 diabetes even before a child
is born. Breastfeed until at least 6
months of age. Breastfed babies
have a lower risk for obesity as well
as type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Daddies, do all you can to keep
your kids active. Physical activity
helps prevent excess weight gain
and the insulin resistance that
can lead to type 2 diabetes.
Dont let them gulp sodas and
sugary drinks. Little bodies re-
spond to big doses of liquid sugar
with a robust insulin response, says
Kaufman. Over time, this can put
strain on the pancreas the organ
that makes insulin. Kaufman ad-
vises no drinking sugar, including
juice for most children. If juice is
given to toddlers, it should be dilut-
ed with water.
Let em eat salads and whole
grains and fruit. You too, Mom and
Dad. Because the stirrings of type 2
diabetes can start as early as preg-
nancy, it can hit kids much more
aggressively than type 2 in adults.
Reasonable eating and exercise
habits started early in families can
keep little cowpokes from becoming
excessively heavy. And when kids
dodge obesity, they are likely to
dodge type 2 diabetes as well.

O N N U T R I T I O N Help little cowpokes dodge diabetes
Theres a global epidemic of type 2
diabetes occurring in children a
phenomenom that did not even
exist 20 or 30 years ago, says
diabetes expert Dr. Francine
Kaufman. In the old days, a
child diagnosed with
diabetes most often had
type 1 an autoimmune
disorder in which the

ST. LOUIS Heat, like the
recent heat wave, can change
the effectiveness of medica-
tions for people and
their pets. People need
to check the instruc-
tions about tem-
perature and
storage, says
Jill Sailors, as-
sistant professor
of pharmacy practice
at St. Louis College of
Pharmacy.
Make sure that medica-
tions are kept away fromdirect
sunlight at home and do not
store medication in the bath-
room where the temperature
varies with bathing and
showering. Also, make sure
not to leave medications in
your car, Sailors
said.
Ideally, medi-
cine should be
stored between

HICAGO- Like many of Americans, Amalie Drury has grown very attached
toher smartphone. The 33-year-oldChicagowriter checks the device sev-
eral times adayfor Facebookupdates andemail messages. Shebrings it into
the bathroom when she brushes her teeth. And she often totes it to bed, just to
check email one more time and play a few more rounds of Words With Friends.
If Drury wakes upinthe middle
of the night, she reaches for her
phone again. My first thought is
to pick up the iPhone to see
whats happening in the news,
she said. Ill sometimes read
long features and not really be
able to go back to sleep.
Drurys terrible habits, as she
calls them, reflect those of mil-
lions who bring their phones, tab-
lets, e-readers and laptops to bed
each night, according to consum-
er research. The trend is causing
increasingconcerninthe medical
community based on mounting
evidencethat thetypeof light pro-
duced by our portable electronic
screens can contribute to sleep
loss.
Last monththe AmericanMed-
ical Association issued a policy
recognizing that exposure to ex-
cessive light at night, including
extended use of various electron-
ic media, candisrupt sleepor exa-
cerbate sleep disorders, especial-
ly in children and adolescents.
Any light at night can be dis-
ruptive, researchers say, but in re-
cent years studies have zeroed in
on the particularly potent blue
light emitted abundantly from
the energy-efficient screens of
smartphones and computers as
well as many energy-saving fluo-
rescent bulbs.
Because blue light is especially
prominent in daylight, our bodies
associate it with daytime, which
may be why exposure to blue
light can make us more alert and
improve our response times. It al-

so has been shown to suppress
melatonin, a hormone that helps
regulatesleepandisnot produced
during the day.
In May 2011, Swiss researchers
at theUniversityof Basel reported
that subjects who spent time at
night infront of anLEDcomputer
screen, as opposed to a screen
emitting a variety of colors but lit-
tle blue light, experienced a sig-
nificant suppression of the eve-
ning rise in endogenous melato-
nin and sleepiness.
Over the last decade, neuros-
cientists have discovered novel
light-sensitive cells in the eye that
detect light. These cells are sepa-
rate from those we use for vision
and contain a photopigment
called melanopsin that is particu-
larly sensitive to blue light. Scien-
tists think this light-detecting
mechanism, which regulates our
sense of night andday andtime of
year, evolved before the ability to
see.
Blue light preferentially alerts
the brain, suppresses the melato-
nin and shifts your body clock all
at the same time, said Harvard
Medical School sleep researcher
Steven Lockley. Your brain is
morealert nowandthinks its day-
time because we have evolved to
only see bright light during the
day.
Compounding the problem,
Lockley and others said, is that
unlike TV (which also emits blue
light), these newer electronic
screens are positioned close to
our faces, increasing the intensity
andeffects of the blue light onour
brains.
The closer you have a light
source to the face, the more in-
tense it is, said Lockley, co-au-
thor of Sleep: AVery Short Intro-
duction. And the further you go
away, it falls off quite quickly. So
having things close to the face is
much worse than having a TV
thats 10 feet away.
The researcher stressed that
these types of screens are not all
bad. When used during the day,
they can help stabilize circadian
rhythms and increase alertness
and reaction time.
Increasingly, however, consum-
ers are using devices that emit
blue light well intothe night. Are-
cent poll by Rosetta marketing
consultants indicated that today
almost 1 in 3 Americans who use
the Internet own a tablet and that
68 percent of them report taking
the device to bed.
While tablet manufacturers re-
main generally quiet about the
blue light issue neither Barnes
& Noble, which makes the Nook
Simple Touch with GlowLight,
nor Amazon, maker of the Kindle
Fire, responded to requests for in-
terviews industry watchers
and scientists confirm that some
manufacturers are already devel-
oping new features to automati-
cally modulate or remove blue
light emissions at night.
Representatives of Apple note
that blue light emissions can be
reduced on the iPad by adjusting
brightness andswitchingtowhite
on black mode at night through
the settings feature.
Other companies alsoarework-
ing on technical solutions. In
2005, after conducting early stud-
ies on the effects of blue light on
sleep, researchers at John Carroll
University in Ohio formed a spi-
noff company calledPhotonic De-
velopments to market products
that can mitigate blue light expo-
sure. These include orange-tinted
glasses, screen filters and blue-
light-free bulbs, all sold at Low-
BlueLights.com.
We have many people talking
about the problem, said Richard
Hansler, one of the scientists who
developed the products, but Im
surprised that so few have come
up with solutions for it.
There is also a free computer
program called f.lux down-
loadable at stereopsis.com/flux
that reduces the levels of blue
light coming from a computer
screen later in the day.
Many people who use electron-
ic media in bed told the Chicago
Tribunetheyhadtroublesleeping
or suffered from insomnia, but
others felt that streaming a sit-
com, reading an e-book (especial-
ly in white letters on a black
screen) or perusing Facebook re-
laxed them and could even put
them to sleep.
Sheri Jacobs, who runs a mar-
keting firm in Deerfield, is in the
second group. Jacobs said she us-
es electronic devices mostly for
entertainment and reading later
in the evening, leaving email and
other work-related tasks for the
morning.
Im a great sleeper, probably
becauseI runintheearlymorning
and Im exhausted by bedtime,
Jacobs said. Ive heard about
(concerns over electronic light at
night) and so my approach has
beentodisconnect fromtheemail
at a certainpoint anduse it for fun
things like reading or watching
videos.
Dr. Alon Avidan, who directs
the Neurology Clinic at UCLA,
recommends goodsleephabits
bright days, dark nights to ev-
eryone but says some people are
genetically much more sensitive
than others to the effects of light
exposure.
Some patients will watch TV
and do computer work late at
night and not suffer from insom-
nia or other problems, he said.
But other people have whats
called hyperarousal. They cant
go to bed without reading email,
and then they have a hard time
shutting their mind off. Those are
the patients for whomlight expo-
sure is having a greater impact
andwhoaregeneticallymorelike-
ly to be affected.
He also notes that electronic
media exposure is rarely the sole
culprit in sleep problems.
There are often many other
factors involved such as stress,
anxiety and sometimes restless
leg syndrome, Avidan said. So
its hardtosay that the electronics
are purely at fault, but they cer-
tainly arent making things any
better.
While its clear that light expo-
sure can delay sleep initiation, its
still unclear whether it can con-
tribute to sleeplessness in the
middle of the night. Also unclear
are the exact light intensities that
will trigger sleep disruption and
whether adolescents respond to
light exposure in the same way
that adults do. The AMAand oth-
ers haverecommendedfurther re-
search into this still-young field.

O N T H E W E B
Dear Abby: I was
glad to see the let-
ter you printed from
Fine With My Deci-
sion (April 22). I
placed a baby boy for
adoption when I was
16. My parents were
bitterly disappointed and sent me out
of state. But despite my somewhat
immature and rebellious nature, I was
and remain glad my parents
made me do the right thing.
In the years since, there has been
a trend toward open adoptions and
emotional reunions between birth
mothers and adoptees who were
separated under the closed system.
I think open adoption is probably
healthier for everyone except in cases
of rape, incest or abuse/neglect.
If the child I gave birth to were to
come looking for me, I feel thats his
right and I wouldnt turn him away.
But I have never felt a desire to look
for him. His birth was not a happy
event in my life, and I dont care to
revisit that chapter. I dont regard him
as my son. The people who raised
him are his parents, not the green kid
who got herself in trouble.
Im somewhat younger than the
girls who gave up babies from the
1940s to 1960s, so I didnt get the
keep it a deep dark secret advice. I
also dont feel I was unfairly coerced.
I was 16 and couldnt support a child.
When I think of how my life would
have been if Id kept him, Im sure I
did the right thing.
Thanks for writing, Fine With My
Decision. Youve got company in me,
and Im sure there are plenty more of
us out there.
Fine With My Decision, Too
Dear Fine Too: Your letter expresses
the sentiments of many women who
responded, as I knew they would.
Their comments:
Dear Abby: Im an adoptee and while
our situations are not the same, I can
assure the woman who wrote you
that shes not a freak. I applaud her
honesty and appreciate her willing-
ness to give her child the chance to
connect with biological relatives who
do want a relationship. The support
groups she has encountered exist
because people who regret their de-
cisions need support. Its not likely
there would be groups for people who
dont feel that sense of regret.
In my case, I was conceived be-
cause my birth parents wanted to
make money. They were ahead of
their time, shall we say, in terms of
surrogate parenthood. I wish I could
have met them, but both died long
before I began my search.
Achieving adulthood for me was
the realization that no matter how we
start out, in the long run, our lives
are our responsibility. I hope Fine
stops beating herself up and uses that
energy to nurture the relationships
she does have.
Rev. J. in New York

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The
most important thing to accom-
plish today is a state of relax-
ation. Being relaxed, youll either
do a job or not do a job, and
everyone will feel good about it
either way.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The
sky may be above you, but it
is also inside you. With every
breath you take, you intermingle
your essence with the sky and
exhale your interpretation of the
universe.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).
Someones tendency to over-
share makes you very sensitive
to the pitfalls of revealing infor-
mation thats not useful to the
situation at hand. Youll strive
for a healthy balance between
honesty and tact.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Youll
watch a problem from the
sidelines and decide when
and whether it would be right
to intervene. Sooner would be
better than later. Step in, give
your two cents, and then
get out.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You
dont see yourself as a guard-
ian of truth who swoops down
from on high to impart your wis-
dom to those who, without you,
wouldnt have a clue. Instead,
you are learning along with
everyone else and loving the
camaraderie.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In
the same way that compost
can help a garden immensely,
anger in the right measurement
can be a positive dynamic that
leads to growth. How much of it
exists and how its directed will
be key.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your
impulse to move is tempered
by caution. He who hesitates
may lose out, but that can be an
extremely good thing if the thing
youre losing out on is a gigantic
hassle.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You
may find yourself in the unfortu-
nate position of having to point
out someones shortcoming.
Luckily, you have a talent for
putting a positive spin on things.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
People have a way of getting
under your skin by refusing to
act sensibly or thoughtfully.
Make sure that youre rested and
that your needs are met, and
youll be impervious to irritation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
The limitations placed in your
path by the outside world are
the least difficult to get past.
The hardest limitations to break
through are the ones you impose
on yourself.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Enlist
help and take care of unfinished
business. You wont be able to
do it all on your own. Physically,
you are capable, but unless you
involve others, youll get too
bored with the process.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). All
youre trying to do is make sure
the people around you are treat-
ed fairly and treat one another
fairly, too. You will be the instiga-
tor of change.
TODAYS BIRTHDAY (July 24).
Dreams are the fuel that speed
you through this year. Cancer
and Sagittarius people adore
you. Your lucky numbers are: 6,
25, 49, 30 and 25.
