Plains Township resident Ni-
coleBoyle’scommutetoher jobin
the Poconos has beenmore costly
lately, and the rising gas prices
aren’t the only reason.
Her car pool mate, a fellow Sa-
nofi Pasteur employee, has taken
maternity leave, requiring Boyle
to foot the weekly gas bill alone.
Andit comesat atimewhengas
prices are closinginontheir high-
est levels ever.
The 28-year-old research tech-
nician started sharing a ride with
a coworker from Jenkins Town-
ship three years ago, the last time
gas prices were this high.
Sharing rides to work is not a
new for money, but trends show
the more gas prices rise, workers
share rides.
Some companies, includingSa-
nofi, offer incentives for car-pool-
ing employees. Lunch vouchers,
discounted parking permits and
primo parking spaces are carrots
dangled to entice employees.
Incentive programs
While some of the companies
that began incentive programs in
2008 have scaled back the re-
wards, Keystone College kept it
intact and has seen participation
grow.
The LaPlume school started
the “Keystone Car Pool Crew” in
2008whengas prices last hovered
around the $4 mark. It never
looked back.
With eight “crews” participa-
ting this semester, the college of-
fers incentives for participation,
spokesman Fran Calpin said.
He said the parking pass is re-
duced from $50 to $35 for enrol-
lees, and they’re given preferred
parking in the campus’ main lot.
“For them there’s a benefit
(with the parking space and re-
duced cost for a pass) and for us
there’s a benefit in that it frees up
parking spaces and reduces our
carbon footprint,” Calpin said.

LAFLIN – Today two beacons
of Roman Catholicism merge,
and for Cathy Mack of Pittston,
the alignment of spiritual light is
a convergence of her own deep-
est devotions.
The beatificationof Pope John
Paul II – the penultimate step to
becoming a saint – occurs in
Rome on “Divine Mercy Sun-
day,” a religious feast day creat-
ed by the late pope in response
to his commitment to St. Mary
Faustina – a religious sister in
Poland at the turn of the century
whom Pope John Paul himself
elevated to sainthood.
Why does such a confluence
resonate so rigorously for Mack?
Since 1996, she has held a pro-
found conviction in the message
Faustina is said to have received
from God: That all can

Four dollars for one gallon of
gas.
It’s a barrier that once bro-
ken sets off panic, causes shifts
in driving and spending habits
and could impact everything
from vacations to college desti-
nations.
“This thing
has a way of
rippling
through the
economy in
many ways,”
said Anthony
Liuzzo, pro-
fessor of Busi-
ness and
Economics
and the direc-
tor of the
MBA program
at Wilkes
University.
That
threshold is
within sight and could be reac-
hed or surpassed as soon as
this week.
It won’t be the first time, and
even it the prices recede back
to the $3 realm, it won’t likely
be the last.

EDWARDSVILLE – “My leg
was shaking the whole time,”
said 8-year-old Jonah Pascal,
of Forty Fort, after his solo vo-
cal performance of “Sweet and
Low” during the 122nd Cynon-
fardd Eisteddfod festival at Dr.
Edwards Memorial Congrega-
tional Church Saturday.
Pascal, a second-grader at
Wyoming Seminary Lower
School, recited a poem and al-
so played a piano solo of “My
Country tis of Thee” at the tra-
ditional Welsh competition.
Competitors, who ranged in
age from under 5 to adult, re-
ceived modest monetary
prizes presented in small,
handmade cloth sacks, draped
over their necks. Unlike
“American Idol,’’ Carol Evans,
adjudicator of music, cri-
tiqued each performance with
positive words of encourage-
ment.
“You have a very rich
sound,” Evans told 11-year-old
Danica Mits of Bear Creek.
Mits, a fifth-grader at Wyom-
ing Seminary Lower School,
sang “Grandfather’s Clock. “I
was nervous at first,” Mits
said. “But once I got up there
and started, I felt happy.”
This was the fourth year
Mits competed in the competi-
tion. “The songs and poems
have gotten harder and loner,’’
she said.
The festival, which originat-
ed in Wales as early as the 12th
century, was brought to the
United States in 1889 by Dr.
Thomas C. Edwards, who in-
stituted the Cynonfardd Liter-
ary Society as a way to teach
Welsh immigrant children the
English language by reading
and memorizing music,
hymns, songs and poetry and
other literary selections in the
tradition of the Welsh Eistedd-
fod. The festival is believed to
be the oldest of its kind in the
United States.
At an age-old festival, young talent carries the day

WILKES-BARRE – Unionized
nurses at Wilkes-Barre General
Hospital have reacheda tentative
agreement with management
and called off a planned one-day
strike that was to begin at 7 a.m.
today.
The Wyoming Valley Nurses
Association and the Pennsylva-
nia Association of Staff Nurses
and Allied Professionals issued a
joint statement with the Wyom-
ing Valley Health Care System
around 8:30 p.m. Saturday to an-
nounce the progress in their ne-
gotiations that have been going
on for nearly two years.
“The parties have reached a
tentative agreement. The sched-
uled 24-hour work stoppage no-
tice has been rescinded by the
union and no strike or picketing
will occur at the hospital,” the re-
lease said. “Union members will
vote on the ratification of the
agreement on Tuesday. No de-
tails of the tentative agreement
will be releaseduntil after the rat-
ification vote on Tuesday.”
Emily Randle, a spokeswoman
for the union, and hospital
spokesman Jim McGuire con-
firmed the statement, but de-
clined further comment.
The tentative agreement sig-
naled a possible end to the nego-
tiations that began shortly after
the hospital and other assets of
the WVHCS were acquired by
Community Health Systems Inc.
on May 1, 2009 for $271 million.
The sale removed the non-profit
status of WBGH and it became
one of the holdings of for-profit
CHS of Franklin, Tenn., the large-
st publicly traded hospital com-
pany in the country.
CHS recognized the union rep-
resenting more than 400 regis-
tered nurses, but not the collec-
tive bargaining agreement in
place before the sale. The two
sides worked out a 60-day labor
agreement that lasted until June
30, 2009. However, until the an-
nouncement of the tentative
agreement they had been unable
to come to terms on a new deal.
Since the change inownership,
the union has filed a number of
complaints with the National La-
bor Relations Board, claiming
WVHCS has bargained in bad
faith. The NLRBset a hearing for
June 21 in Philadelphia on the
union’s claim that the WVHCS
stopped collecting members’
dues in violation of the collective
bargaining agreement.
The lack of a new agreement
led the union to stage a one-day
strikeonDec. 23. Prior tothat the
nurses went on strike and were
locked out in a 15-day labor dis-
pute in 2003.
The hospital brought in re-
placement nurses in 2003 and
was prepared to do the same for
the strike that was to take place
today.
The pending purchase by CHS
of three hospitals inLackawanna,
Luzerne and Wyoming counties
from Mercy Health Partners has
raised concerns for unionized
workers at those facilities.
A Lackawanna County judge
approved the $150 million sale in
March. In anticipation of the pur-
chase, Mercy Hospital in Scran-
ton announced it would change
its name to Regional Hospital of
Scranton. Mercy Special Care
Hospital in Nanticoke will be
called Special Care Hospital and
Mercy Tyler Hospital in Tunk-
hannock will be renamed Tyler
Memorial Hospital.

early morning, single-car crash on Old
Tioga Turnpike.
State police said Warren Davenport
Jr., 24, of Shickshinny, was driving a
1997 Chevrolet pickup truck south on
Old Tioga Turnpike and exited a right
curve in the roadway near Academy
Street, where he lost control of the
truck at 1:49 a.m. Saturday.
The truck swerved over the center
line then back off the right side of the
road, striking a large tree with its driv-
er’s side.
Davenport was pronounced dead at
the scene, state police said.
Two passengers in the vehicle, both
21-year-old females, suffered unknown
injuries in the crash, state police said.
They were flown to Geisinger Medical
Center in Danville for treatment.
It is unknown whether Davenport or
the two passengers were wearing seat-
belts, state police said. State police said
they are continuing investigation of the
accident.
State police were assisted at the
scene by Berwick Ambulance and Para-
medics, Huntington Township Fire
Department and Ambulance and Ben-
ton Fire Department and Ambulance.
Funeral arrangements for Davenport
are being handled by the Clarke Piatt
Funeral Home, 6 Sunset Lake Road,

Truck operator arrested
The driver of a pickup truck that
struck a porch of a house on East
Northampton Street early Saturday
morning was arrested on suspicion of
driving under the influence, police said.
Police said they responded to a report
around 2:50 a.m. of a vehicle into a
home and found the pickup truck
lodged under a porch. Jason Zych, 20,
of South Walnut Street, Wilkes-Barre,
the driver of the truck, was standing
beside it with his female passenger,
police said.
After determining that neither Zych
nor the passenger was injured, police
said they spoke to the driver who said
he swerved to avoid an animal, jumped
the curb and ran into the porch, police
said.
In the process of investigating the
crash, police said that Zych presented
the classic signs of intoxication. He was
taken into custody and transported to
police headquarters where he was given
an alcohol breath test that registered
positive, police said.
Zych was released into the custody of
a responsible adult.
The city building inspector was con-
tacted and allowed the pickup truck to
be removed from the property.

NEWPORT TWP. – When Staff Sgt.
James Horning of the Pennsylvania Ar-
my National Guard heard 150 veterans’
grave markers were stolen from three
cemeteries two weeks ago, it was a call
to action.
“I felt likeI hadtodosomethingabout
it,” Horning, a recruiter with the 109th
Field Artillery in Nanticoke, said. “This
is my area; I’m in charge of the recruits
in this area.”
Saturday, Horning accomplished his
mission, replacing each stolen brass
marker with a newone culled fromarea
American Legion and VFW posts.
“These markers represent much
more than just a piece of brass,” Horn-
ing said, addressing a crowd of relatives
whose loved ones’ markers were taken.
“They represent an eternity of remem-
brance for these veterans who have
served our great nation… Although
these markers were stolen, no one can
ever steal the honor, dignity andrespect
that our veterans have earned. It will
stay with them forever.”

week that thieves hadpilferedthe mark-

PITTSTON TWP. – Jen-
nifer Dorosky, a 28-year-
old teacher at Wyoming
Valley West School Dis-
trict, told the crowd at
Challenger Little League’s
20th reunion Saturday
that she now knows how
Lou Gehrig felt some 72
years ago.
On July 4, 1939, Gehrig
told the crowd at Yankee
Stadium that despite be-
ing diagnosed with a ter-
minal disease, he felt like
“the luckiest man on the
face of the Earth.” Doros-
ky, who has spina muscu-
lar atrophy, said she could
relate.
“Now, 20 years after that
first Challenger Little
League game, I know ex-
actly what Lou Gehrig
meant,” Dorosky said.
Dorosky and 21 other
members of the 1991 Chal-
lenger League were honor-
ed at Pittston Township
Little League for starting
the organization that has
served hundreds of other
mentally and/or physical-
ly challenged kids.
After introductions of
all the players, each re-
ceived a commemorative
gift, were treated to hot
dogs, hamburgers and
cake and then they played
an “oldtimer’s” game.
“This is amazing,” said
Dan Berry, whose son
Chris played in the inau-
gural league. Chris Berry
re-enacted his trademark
move of sliding into home,
standing up and bowing to
the crowd.

WEST HAZLETON – St. Francis of
Assisi Parish closed its doors for the
final time on Saturday after having
served as a place of worship in the
community for nearly 50 years.
The congregation is merging with
Transfiguration Church in Hazleton to
become The Holy Name of Jesus at
Transfiguration Church. The closing,
which will affect 280 families, comes
amid a series of similar decisions by
Scranton Diocese officials to reduce
the number of churches and schools
throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania
in response to dwindling membership.
“The closing signifies a closure in a
lifelong relationship between the par-
ish and her parishioners,” said St.
Francis secretary, Donna Pancurak.
“People here have dedicated a lot of
their lives to this parish. We’re literally
closing a chapter in all our lives.
“Most of our membership is elderly
and they remember what it was like
over the years,” Pancurak continued.
“Many of these people help establish
this church and kept it alive through
fundraisers and hard work.”
St. Francis’ final Mass was celebrat-
ed by the Rev. Leonard Butcavage,
now retired, with the Rev. Philip
Rayappan as his co-celebrant. At close
of service, long-time parishioners
Joann Karchner and Neal Graziano
locked the church doors to signify the
official closing.
Following the service, a reception of
Catholic fellowship was hosted by
Transfiguration Church to welcome
the new members.
“At the moment, our people feel ve-
ry displaced.” Pancurak explained.
“But in the end, God will take care of
them. We all pray to the same God.”

PLAINS TWP. – The Helping
Hands Society, a Hazleton-based
nonprofit organization dedicated
to helping families with children
who struggle with learning dis-
abilities and other special needs,
held its 28th annual telethon fun-
draiser on Saturday at the Mohe-
gan Sun casino. Organizers
hoped to raise more than
$100,000 during the one-day
event.
Charlie Burkhardt, a member
of the board of directors for Help-
ing Hands, stressed donations
are the lifeblood for the organiza-
tion and the telethon provides
the largest source of revenue.
“We need the funds to keep the
doors open,” Burkhardt said.
“This is our biggest fundraiser.”
The money is used to defray
the ongoing costs associated
with providing an increasingly
necessary community service of-
fered with nominal fees to those
who use it.
“We don’t turn anyone away
because they can’t pay,” he add-
ed.
This year’s telethon is the
third one held at the casino. An
array of entertainment graced
the stages along with children
and families who benefitted from
the services.
Joann Mamouriah, from Ha-
zleton, uses the services at Help-
ing Hands to aid her in caring for
her 2-year-old daughter Lexi,
who was diagnosed with Down
syndrome. She said the progress
Lexi has made since working
with them has been superb.
“She’s learning to play. Tthey
are giving her speech therapy
and helping her learn to move
her mouth, hands and feet,” she
said. “They do everything you
need to take care of your child.” .
Lexi participated in a presenta-
tion for telethon viewers show-
ing how the therapy works.
Mamouriah points out Help-
ing Hands lets parents with spe-
cial needs children know they
are not alone. And, “They don’t
ask for a dime at the door,” she
added.
Joell Martinelli, director of
marketing and fundraising for
Helping Hands, said the telethon
offers an opportunity to inform
everyone in Luzerne, Carbon
and Schuylkill counties of their
“hidden gem” located in Hazle-
ton.
“We work with children from
birth up to the elementary
grades,” Martinelli said. There
are infant stimulus programs as
well as after school and occupa-
tional therapy programs availa-
ble, she added.
Martinelli pointed out the de-
mand for the Helping Hands ser-
vices increases as do the finan-
cial demands. The telethon is the
largest money maker, she said,
with other upcoming events con-
tributing. Anyone interested in
finding out more about themcan

HANOVER TWP. – Call him
Scrappy the miracle dog.
Jeanne Brandwein’s dog
Scrappy was struck by a car Fri-
day afternoon at the intersection
of Willow Street and the Sans
Souci Parkway.
The 3-year-old Labrador-Jack
Russell mix was rolled over by
the wheel of a Cadillac, dragged
around the wheel well and shot
out the other side, Brandwein’s
son Kevin Brandwein said.
Scrappy landed on his back
twitching a few feet away.
Brandwein feared the worst
when her boyfriend Guy Disper-
na carried him back to their
home on Elk Street, especially
after he crawled under the bed
and didn’t want to come out. But
a few hours later he was back to
normal; tail wagging, jumping
and scrappy as ever.
Brandwein said she had Scrap-
py checked out by a veterinarian
and he appeared OK. A small
scratch on his shoulder, which
didn’t even break the skin, is the
only apparent mark the ordeal
left on the dog.
“I don’t know how he survived
but he did,” Jeanne Brandwein
said. “He’s a miracle dog.”
Scrappy got loose after escap-
ing his collar Friday and ran to-
wards Disperna, who was wait-
ing at a bus stop on the Sans
Souci Parkway.
Disperna said the driver of a
yellowCadillac ran a yellowlight
on the Sans Souci Parkway at
Willow Street and struck the
dog. The driver didn’t stop, he
said.
Disperna said he plans to re-
port the incident to police next
week but didn’t at the time be-
cause he didn’t get the driver’s
license plate number and his
first concern was making sure
the dog was OK.
The Brandweins said they
hope the incident provides a
wake-up call to township offi-
cials about the intersection
where Scrappy was struck,
which they said is exceedingly
dangerous to cross on foot.
“Maybe something will be
done,” Kevin Brandwein said.
“How many people are going to
die before something is done?
How many animals?”

Decision on shuttle near
E
ngineers should know today wheth-
er Endeavour’s six-man crew and
their families — including wounded
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords — need to stick
around for a Monday launch attempt or
come back sometime around Mother’s
Day.
Technicians spent Saturday draining
fuel from the shuttle and then getting
into the crowded guts of the left rear
compartment. Their job is to figure out
just what went wrong in a heating
system for a power system that con-
trols crucial hydraulics. The problem
was severe enough to make NASA
postpone Friday’s launch, which had
become a spectacle.
Kennedy Space Center appeared
mostly empty Saturday, foreshadowing
what might happen after the shuttle
program ends this summer. Gone were
the crowds hoping to see the second-
to-last shuttle launch and throngs of
media for the saga of Giffords, shot in
the head by a would-be assassin in
January, and her husband, Endeavour
commander Mark Kelly.
KABUL, AFGHANISTAN
Taliban plan offensive
The spring fighting season in Af-
ghanistan geared up this weekend with
a war of words.
The Taliban announced they will
begin their spring offensive today,
pledging to attack military bases, con-
voys and Afghan officials, including
members of the peace council working
to reconcile with top insurgent leaders.
Saturday’s declaration came a day after
a new Pentagon report claimed the
militants were experiencing low mo-
rale after suffering heavy losses on the
battlefield.
Senior officers with the U.S.-led
coalition said Friday that the Taliban
— aided by the al-Qaida-linked Haq-
qani network — have plans to conduct
a brief series of high-profile attacks,
including suicide bombings, across the
country in a display of power.

Saddam victims win cash
Iraqi lawmakers approved a contro-

were abused by Saddam Hussein’s
regime during the 1990 invasion of
Kuwait.
The settlement is part of a deal reac-
hed between Baghdad and Washington
last year to end years of legal battles by
U.S. citizens who claim they were
tortured or traumatized, including
hundreds held as human shields.
Lawmakers approved the settlement
by a majority after listening to the
foreign and finance ministers as well as
the head of the central bank describe
why it was necessary, said Abbas al-
Bayati of the State of Law political
bloc.

Syrian troops take mosque
Syrian army troops backed by tanks
and helicopters on Saturday took a
prominent mosque that had been con-

southern city, killing four people, a
witness said.
The operation in the town of Daraa
came a day after President Bashar
Assad unleashed deadly force to crack
down on a months-old revolt, killing at
least 65 people, mostly in the border
town.
Daraa resident Abdullah Abazeid
said the assault on the mosque lasted
90 minutes, during which troops fired
tank shells and heavy machine guns.

splintered Southern towns say volun-

say they need more from the govern-
ment: Helpgettingintotheir homes and
cleaning up endless debris.
Across the twister-ravaged South,
students and church groups aggressive-
ly tended to those who needed it most,
clearing away wreckage and handing
out food and water. Wednesday’s torna-
does marked the second-deadliest day
of twisters in U.S. history, leaving 341
people dead across seven states — in-
cluding 249 in Alabama. Thousands
were hurt, and hundreds of homes and
businesses have vanished into rubble.

CHAMBERSBURG — A 10-
year-oldcentral Pennsylvania girl
who allegedly caused a baby’s
death by violently shaking him
and throwing himinto a crib was
charged with third-degree mur-
der.
The charges filed against the
fifth-grader on Friday in Franklin
County came after a coroner’s in-
quest into the death of 11-month-
old Heath Ryder. The girl was re-
leasedintothe custodyof her par-
ents and ordered not to have un-
supervised contact with children
under 5.
“This is not a kid that has a
mental health disorder. She does
not have a personality disorder,”
the girl’s attorney, Jason Kutula-
kis, told The Public Opinion of
Chambersburg. “She is not a bad
person. She has no history of be-
havioral problems or school prob-
lems.”
Also charged Friday was 56-
year-old Dottie Bowers, who was
babysitting both children at her
home near Shippensburg, Pa.,
when the shaking allegedly oc-
curred on July 29.
Bowers was charged with in-
voluntary manslaughter and en-
dangering the welfare of a child
for allegedly failing to seek med-
ical carefor theinfant. Ryder died
of traumatic brain injury at a hos-
pital on Aug. 2.
"Our goal is to work with the
police and find out what really
happened,” said Bowers’ lawyer,
Joseph Caraciolo. “When Dottie
has her chance, she will tell her
story.”

TRIPOLI, Libya — A NATO
missile strike killed Moammar
Gadhafi’s youngest son and
three grandchildren on Satur-
day but the Libyan leader sur-
vived, a government spokes-
man said.
Gadhafi and his wife were in
the Tripoli house of his 29-year-
old son, Seif al-Arab Gadhafi,
when it was hit by at least one
bomb dropped from a NATO
warplane, according to Libyan
spokesman Moussa Ibrahim.
“The leader himself is in
goodhealth,” Ibrahimsaid. “He
was not harmed. The wife is al-
so in good health.”
Seif al-Arab Gadhafi was the
sixth son of Gadhafi and broth-
er of the better known Seif al-
Islam Gadhafi. The younger
Gadhafi had spent much of his
time in Germany in recent
years.
“The attack resulted in the
martyrdom of brother Seif al-
Arab Gadhafi, 29 years old, and
three of the leader’s grandchil-
dren,” Ibrahim said. He said
Seif al-Arab had studied at a
German university but had not
yet completed his studies.
Seif al-Arab “was playing and
talking with his father and
mother and his nieces and ne-
phews and other visitors when
he was attacked for no crimes
committed,” Ibrahim said.

“When it comes Jan. 2, 2012,
I’ll be day-one ready. I’m not go-
ing to need any training. I’mnot
going to need any update on the
issues. I’ll know exactly what
the issues are because I’ll be for-

prides himself on making sure
everyone on the transition com-
mittee is informed and prepared
to debate and make decisions.
“The last thingyouneedtodo
is delay a vote because nobody
was ready to go. It’s just kind of

In addition to chairing the

serves on three transition sub-

“I always wanted to get back
to the Valley,” he said.
Government experience and
the ability to communicate will
be essential for the new county
manager, he said. The public
must understand the reasoning
behind decisions – not just the
outcomes, he said.
“This person has to be able to
express a message to the people
about what’s going on. The
message is going to be key,” said
Bobeck, who supports a nation-
al searchbut wouldnot preclude
someone local if he or she is
deemed the most qualified.
Bobeck said he wants to me-
thodically review expenses,
with the goal of reducing the
county’s $460 million debt.
“The debt is a stranglehold,
and it forces you into very bad
decisions,” he said, pointing out
the commissioners’ decision to
pay fees to get early up-front
cash for back taxes owed to the
county.
The county pays elected tax
collectors $420,000 a year, he
said. Some excel, but others
don’t, and he said he’d like to as-
sess howmuchmoney the coun-
ty could save by collecting in-
house. He also wants to elimi-
nate a $1,500 health insurance
opt-out bonus paid when two
county employees are married
to each other.
Bobeck said he’s concerned
that the county’s roughly 1,400
employeeswon’t befollowingall
provisions of the new personnel
code because their collective
bargaining agreements take
precedence. He supports pay
raises based on performance,
rather than standard across-the-
board increases.

Luzerne County Council can-
didate Harry Haas said his opin-
ions will be publicly known if
he’s elected, but he’ll also act as
a “consensus builder.”
“I think a big component of
this job is going to be the ability
to work collegially with peo-
ple,” the history
teacher recently
told a Times Lead-
er endorsement
panel.
“We’ve seen a lot
of disrespect in
politics really on all levels of
government. I’d like to make
sure we can be from different
sides of the aisle but also treat
each other with respect. That’s
how things get done.”
Haas said he’s trained as a
historian to explore different
perspectives on past decisions.
He said he supports less gov-
ernment. The county should
stick to providing essential,
mandated services, he said.
“I don’t think the county gov-
ernment needs to be going off
and creating other programs
that are going to cost us more
money. I think we’ve seen
enough of that in recent times,”
Haas said.
Haas said he understands the
needs throughout the county.
He grew up in rural Franklin
Township but chose to live in
downtown Wilkes-Barre when
he returned to the area after col-
lege and teaching in Washing-
ton, D.C.
Haas is also fluent in Spanish
and teaches a citizenship class
in Hazleton.
“I just want to make sure that
everybody who is a citizen of
our county just feels welcome,
feels like they have a voice,” he
said.
He wants a manager with pro-
ven government management
experience and a “good moral
background” and wouldn’t re-
ject a qualified candidate from
the area. He believes the new
council should institute bench-
marks or a yearly review proc-
ess for the new manager to pre-
vent someone who is not per-
forming from remaining in the
post because he or she has sev-
en supportive votes on council.
“I’d just like to see a little
more accountability in that ar-
ea,” said Haas.
Haas is a member of the
teachers’ union at Dallas Mid-
dle School and said he has no
problem with collective bar-
gaining agreements as long as
both sides bargain in good faith.
He praised county Controller
Walter Griffith, saying he’s
“plugged a lot of leaks” and
“added that layer of account-
ability.”
Haas said he would support
the sale of all unneeded county
property and said some services
must be eliminated, though he
said employees who are essen-
tial and working hard should
not be scared about losing their
jobs.
“We’re in tough economic
times. We have to focus on es-
sentials,” he said.
He unsuccessfully ran for
Wilkes-Barre mayor in 2003 and
the Wilkes-Barre Area School
Board in 2008. “Hopefully the
third time’s a charm,” he said.

Luzerne County Council can-
didate Brian Overman said he
wants to restore the county’s im-
age if he’s elected.
“We’ve had a bit of a black eye
over the past several years. I
think it’s time to put some posi-
tive activities into the govern-
ment and give people a sense of
openness and of
participation,” the
Plymouth resident
recently told a
Times Leader en-
dorsement panel.
Overman said listening to citi-
zens’ concerns and advice has
been one of the most fulfilling
parts of campaigning, and he
would welcome public input as a
council member.
“Problems won’t be solved by
individuals. It’s going to be
solved by cooperative activities,
andI wouldencourage every citi-
zen, every member of the coun-
cil, every citizen of the county to
participate in that,” Overman
said.
He said he’s not a politician
and is running “for the concern
that I have for our county.”
His education in architecture
has trained him to think critical-
ly and solve problems, he said.
He’s also familiar with meet-
ing procedures and the need to
reach consensus as faculty presi-
dent at Luzerne County Com-
munity College, where he’s as-
sistant professor of architecture
since 1988 and a member of the
Pennsylvania State Education
Association (PSEA).
Overman said he voted for
home rule, though he’s con-
cerned that the appointed man-
ager might have too much free-
dom to make decisions.
He wants a manager with ex-
perience in oversight and fi-
nance.
“The manager has to do so
many things and wear so many
hats. I thinkthat’s one of the keys
to look for that diversity of expe-
rience,” he said.
The ability to interact with
workers is also important, he
said.
“I think there has to be a qual-
ity of easy communication with
subordinates as opposed to dic-
tatorial,” Overman said.
Overman is part of an 11-per-
son Democratic slate of candi-
date endorsed by area unions.
He said he views contract nego-
tiations as a “fair trade of propos-
als and discussion,” and both
sides must present “good ratio-
nale” for what they’re seeking
from the other.
“If a proposal from a union is
going to significantly impact the
budget, then we may very well
need to take a hard line on that,”
Overman said. “However, I
would not support stripping a
contract or reducing the number
of union members because I
think there’s a value to having
collective bargaining as opposed
to individual at-will employees.”
Citizens have been stressing
that they don’t want tax increas-
es, he said, addingthat he will do
his best to keep taxes flat. He
said he supports the develop-
ment of clear policies for county
government and wants to initi-
ate more countywide planning.

Luzerne County Council can-
didate Moderno “Butch” Rossi
said he’s equipped to handle the
office because he’s served as a
Lake-Lehman School Board
member, working with budgets,
union contracts, personnel mat-
ters and litigation.
“I’m a person that enjoys serv-
ing. I think I have
all the experience
necessary on day
one to go in there
and make a differ-
ence,” the Lehman
Township resident recently told
a Times Leader endorsement
panel.
He also emphasized his lead-
ership skills, saying he treats ev-
eryone the same.
Rossi served as board presi-
dent twice and has also served as
president of the Luzerne Inter-
mediate Unit board and is cur-
rently president of the 15-mem-
ber West Side Career and Tech-
nology Center board.
He said he got into public of-
fice because he didn’t believe the
district was providing the best
education for the students, and
he said he’s pushed to make aca-
demics and technology a prior-
ity. He said he never voted for a
tax increase inthe school district
and was elected three times.
“I guess the people feel I’mdo-
ing a good job,” Rossi said.
Rossi said he wants a county
manager withcredentials, a busi-
ness background and the ability
to work well with council mem-
bers and employees. He stressed
that the manager could just as
likely be a woman as a man.
He said he would push to in-
terview the manager finalists in
public so citizens could hear the
questions and answers.
“I think that would bring cred-
ibility,” Rossi said. “Nothing
should be hidden from any-
body.”
Rossi said he listens to all
opinions onanissue but won’t be
pressured. He said he is not
afraid of public debate and dis-
course.
“I might vote on something
that other people vote against.
That’s fine. When I leave that
meeting-- that’s very important --
let it go. We’re not there to get
mad over a vote or whatever. I
think everybody’s ideas are im-
portant.”
Rossi said he’s been working
with school board members to
cut the district’s budget line by
line and would do the same in
the county.
"If you’re serious about this
witha bigbudget like youhave at
the county, you have to look at
everything, and I’ll take the time
and effort to do it,” Rossi said.
He said he has experience ne-
gotiating contracts inthe district
and once helped to convince the
teachers to take a two-year sala-
ry freeze because the district was
in the midst of a $20 million
building project that would im-
prove technology for the stu-
dents.
He also has experience over-
seeing a $16 million purchasing
budget at the Wyoming Valley
Sanitary Authority, where he
works as purchasing and inven-
tory coordinator. Rossi said he
took a pay cut to take an $8.50-
an-hour, midnight-shift guardjob
at the authority before the coor-
dinator position became availa-
ble.

Luzerne County Council can-
didate Jane Walsh-Waitkus said
she would want people to ques-
tion and grill her if she’s elected,
whether they bump into her at
the grocery store or a Penguins
hockey game.
“I tell people that if you elect
me, you will be
able to find me,”
the Dorrance
Township resident
recently told a
Times Leader en-
dorsement panel.
Walsh-Waitkus said she would
be accessible to the media and
would set up a special phone
number for citizens to provide
feedback.
“That’s part of government by
the people,” she said.
The Penn State Hazleton pro-
fessor said she has experience as
an elected official serving four
years on Laflin Borough Council
about 14 years ago. She said she
was council president during the
borough’s completion of a multi-
million-dollar sewer project
mandated by the federal govern-
ment, which required her to
work with engineers and attor-
neys and keep the public in-
formed.
“It turned out to be a wonder-
ful experience, really a learning
experience,” she said.
Walsh-Waitkus also gained
management experience as the
former owner of Walsh Real Es-
tate Corp. and current supervi-
sor of the Teaching andLearning
Resource Center at Penn State
Hazleton, where she also works
as a professor.
“I think I’m very well-round-
ed,” she said.
Walsh-Waitkus, who voted for
the county’s home rule charter,
saidshehas experienceinprofes-
sional recruitment searches at
Penn State and wants a county
manager with a proven track re-
cord overseeing a government
entity or business.
She said she worked closely
with accountants to monitor
spending and budgets when she
was on council and in her own
business and would do the same
in the county.
Keepingtaxes flat is her target,
she said, noting that her 89-year-
old mother is on a fixed income
and living in her own home. She
is part of an 11-person slate of
Democratic candidates en-
dorsed by area unions.
“I’m a regular person. I’m not
the skilled politician-type per-
son. I’m just somebody who got
fired up,” Walsh-Waitkus said.
Walsh-Waitkus said she also
wants to bring county and mu-
nicipal leaders together to figure
out a way to attract more high-
paying jobs to the area, possibly
focusing on a regional marketing
plan that would emphasize the
area’s positive qualities.
“I know we can do better,” she
said.
She said she would also en-
courage a “team approach” that
requires department heads,
council and the county manager
to meet regularly to hash out
concerns and ideas.
Programs for veterans are also
a top priority, said Walsh-Wait-
kus, whose youngest son is a vet-
eran of the war in Iraq.

After graduating from St. Jo-
seph’s University with a political

Cabell alsorecentlyfacilitateda

which employs
about 40 and is ex-
pected to do about
$2.5 million in sales
this year.
Now 25, Cabell said he also
helped run his father’s restaurant
and laser tag business when he
was a teenager.
“My background in business
and understanding of politics and
government I think has prepared
me well to represent Luzerne
Countyinthisnewformof govern-
ment,” the Butler Township resi-
dent recently tolda Times Leader
endorsement panel.
Describing himself as a fiscal
conservative, Cabell saidcuts and
staff “rightsizing” are needed in
county government.

The new council must ensure

“Ifwekeeprunningupthisdebt,

Luzerne County Council can-
didate Rick Morelli said he’s the
only candidate who served on
boththe commissionthat drafted
the home rule charter and the
transition committee helping to
implement it.
“I think I bring unique experi-
ence and knowledge to the table
regarding this new government,
as to what’s inside the charter as
well as what the challenges are
ahead regarding the transition of
this,” the Sugarloaf Township
resident recently told a Times
Leader endorsement panel.
“My goal in running is to really
see this gets off on
the right path and
that it’s done right.”
Morelli said his
master’s degree in
finance and experi-
ence serving on the
Hazleton Area
School Board from 2003 to 2007
also prepared him for the county
council post. The school district
is the largest in the county and
has a budget around the same
size as the county, he said. He
said he’s familiar with mandated
services andfunding streams and
what may be cut.
Morelli said he’s proven that
he’s willing to publicly question
and challenge decisions, even
when he’s alone in his inquiries.
One citizen called him an “ob-
structionist” at a meeting, he
said.
“I just want you to know this
about me: I’m not here because
I’mlookingtomake friends,” Mo-
relli said. “I go to these meetings
with my own opinion, with my
own mind. I’m not afraid to step
on someone’s toes. It’s not per-
sonal. After the meeting, it’s dif-
ferent. We’ll be friends. We’ll
shake hands.”
He helpedtoconvince the tran-
sition committee to reduce the
salary for an administrative as-
sistant and unsuccessfully op-
posed the hiring of a transition
consultant, arguing that outside
assistance was an unnecessary
expense. Morelli said he would
look for cuts as a council member
but does not yet know specifics.
“I’mnot cominginherewithan
agenda. I can’t come in here and
tell you I knowwhat and where it
needs to be cut. That would be ir-
responsible,” he said.
Morelli oversees the transition
subcommittee that’s helping
with the recruitment for a new
county manager. He’d like to see
someone with experience in fi-
nance and government who is in-
dependent, won’t be intimidated
bycouncil andwithatrackrecord
of making tough decisions and
negotiating with unions.
The manager and division
heads will be the “bad guys” who
make budget recommendations
to council and decisions on hir-
ings and firings, he said.
Morelli said his push to get
home rule drafting meetings on
the Internet show his commit-
ment totransparency, andhe said
the same thing may be done with
county council meetings at a low
cost.
He would also donate his
$8,000 council salary to the coun-
ty and said he’s publicly an-
nounced his belief that finalists
for the county manager post
should be publicly interviewed.
“People don’t trust the county.
People voted for home rule not
because of what we put inside of
it but because they wanted
change. In order for us to build
trust with the people we need to
do a little bit extra.”
Morelli has roots

LuzerneCountyCouncil candi-
date Wil Toole said he’s been at-
tending county commissioner
meetings for years, taking the
time to research issues and pre-
sentrecommendationsthatcould
improve county government.
“I’ve never walked up to that
lectern without having a solu-
tion,” the Dupont man recently
toldaTimesLeaderendorsement
panel. “If I addressed a problem, I
also gave them a solution at that
time.”
A sense that the public is not
heard was a large part of his moti-
vation for running,
he said. Commis-
sioners accept pub-
lic comment at
meetings because
it’s required by law,
but Toole said county commis-
sioners usually don’t appear to
value the feedback.
“They don’t really pay atten-
tion,” Toole said, joking that his
doctor advised him to run so he
won’t have a heart attack.
Toole saidhe is the onlycounty
council candidate who has the
professional municipal manager
credentials recognized by the In-
ternational City/County Manag-
ers Association (ICMA), stem-
ming from his past employment
as Pittstoncity clerk.
He saidhe spent the first half of
his career in finance and the sec-
ond half in government. Pittston
had lower taxes and sewer fees
and more police officers when he
was city clerk, he said.
Toole often carries documents
backing up his numerous con-
cerns and suggestions on county
issues, from the cost of health in-
surance for prison inmates to a
failure to seek sponsorship reve-
nueforcounty-ownedMoonLake
Park.
He believes the county is wast-
ing money on palm-reading time
clocks, saying managers should
be making sure their workers are
putting inthe necessary hours.
“That means you have to have
managers who will manage, and
I’mbig on that. I just think every-
body should be held account-
able,” Toole said.
Toolesaidhewasvocal overthe
years about the commissioners’
decision to borrow money and
thenspendsomeof it on“baseball
fields andparks.” That borrowing
caused the county’s debt to bal-
loonto $460 million, he said.
“Luzerne County cannot afford
to borrow money to give away. If
there’snodirect economicbenefit
toit, thenI don’t thinktheycanaf-
fordit right now,” Toole said.
Heopposedtheswitchtohome
rule, saying the charter gives the
managertoomuchpower. Hesaid
he wants tobe oncouncil totry to
institute policies that will force
the manager to keep the council
andpublic informed.
Toole wants a manager who
will “step out of that box” and
comes up with ideas, and he be-
lieves there are qualified people
locally.
He also wants to create com-
mittees to formulate plans to re-
duce the county’s debt and make
the county more business-friend-
ly.
“I’ma firmbeliever in the more
minds attacking a problem, the
easier you’re going to come up
witha solution,” he said.
Research is the
key, says Toole

Luzerne County Council can-
didate Harry Skene said he un-
derstands county government
and knows how to bring oppos-
ing sides together – skills that
would benefit the 11-member
council if he’s elect-
ed.
“I’m a very good
problem solver.
People come to me
with a lot of very
complex problems,
and I’m able to fix them,” the
West Pittston attorney recently
told a Times Leader endorse-
ment panel.
His knowledge of county gov-
ernment comes from the only
government solicitorshiphe’s ev-
er had as legal counsel for feisty
former county Controller Steve
Flood.
Skene saidFloodhiredhimbe-
cause he didn’t have any political
connections and was willing to
tackle controversial issues in-
volving high-ranking county offi-
cials, including judges.
“I hadsome problems withthe
judges as a result of me working
with Steve Flood, so I under-
stood the pressures and prob-
lems that were going on in the
county,” Skene said.
He said he has proven experi-
ence with conflict resolution as
an attorney and life coach at his
business, Practical Law and Life
in Forty Fort.
Personnel expenses must be
reduced because they eat up
about 60 percent of the county’s
budget, Skene said.
The choice boils down to con-
cessions from workers or layoffs
to balance the county’s budget,
he said.
“We can’t raise taxes for resi-
dents of this county to the point
where we could pay down our
debt and pay all of our other ex-
penses and end up having a bal-
anced budget. There’s just not
that kindof money inthe county,
and it wouldn’t be fair to do that
after all the wasteful spending in
the past,” Skene said.
Skene said he would seek con-
cessions in union contracts.
“I know that isn’t popular,” he
said. “I come to this position
with an open mind and attached
to nobody,” he said.
Skene said he has refused en-
dorsements because he doesn’t
want to be “beholden to any-
body.” He pointed to a slate of
union-endorsed candidates.
“Their whole plan is to make
sure that nothingchanges for the
unions in the county,” he said.
Skene said he’s seeking the po-
sition because he wants people
to trust government again.
“I think there’s been too long a
time where things were happen-
inginthe backrooms andpeople
just didn’t respect what the gov-
ernment was doing,” Skene said.
“I’d like to see that change.”
He saidhe votedfor the switch
tohome rule because it appeared
that two majority commission-
ers were permitted to “rule the
day” under the outgoing system.
He wants a manager with gov-
ernment, economic develop-
ment and budgeting experience.
He said he’d lobby state legis-
lators to allow the county to im-
pose a 1-percent sales tax to gen-
erate revenue to pay down the
county’s $460 million debt. He
also supports increased home
confinement of inmates to re-
duce prison costs.
Skene says he’s a problem solver

Luzerne County Council can-
didate Fred Stuccio said he’d
look for cuts in the county as he
has in his own household.
He used food to illustrate his
point. He and his
wife used to dine
out regularly but
switched to pizza
places as their bud-
get tightened.
Then they started
ordering pizza to eat at home,
and now his wife is making her
own pizza.
“The county has to make piz-
za,” the Pittston man recently
told a Times Leader endorse-
ment panel. “You have to make
do with what you have because
the county can’t keep using our
backs as an unlimited source of
revenue.”
The auto body shop manager
said he’s not “the most articulate
person or well-spoken.”
“I’m just an ordinary guy, a
blue-collar person looking to
serve my community,” Stuccio
said. “I work very hard for my
family and my employer, and if
I’m elected, I’ll work very hard
for the people.”
Stuccio said he looks up to
county Controller Walter Grif-
fith, anautorepair business own-
er.
“He inspired me. I think he’s
doing a great job. If he cando it, I
can do it,” Stuccio said.
He believes his work as a body
shop manager qualifies him for
the post because the industry is
“measured by efficiency.” He
said he’s completed programs
run by manufacturers that
taught him how to “deal with
people and processes.”
“If you get processes in place,
everybody knows what you’re
doing. You increase the efficien-
cy of the county, and that in turn
would save people like me mon-
ey,” Stuccio said.
One of those training pro-
grams required participants to
observe workers in an automo-
bile factory for an entire day to
understand their work. He said
he’d do that in the county.
He noted that he had to visit
two county buildings to submit
the necessary paperwork to run
for county office, prompting him
to wonder if the layout of county
offices could be improved for the
public.
Stuccio said he believes a local
resident shouldbe hiredas coun-
ty manager.
“Being from the area makes
himfully vested like I amand ev-
erybody that lives here,” he said.
He also wants someone with a
business background who works
well withpeople andwill motiva-
te workers and reduce “negativ-
ity.”
Stuccio said he’d try to save
money by eliminating positions
through attrition, consolidating
services and increasing technol-
ogy.
He said he’s got an incentive
because he and his wife built a
house.
“Between the corruption and
the misuse of our tax dollars, I
decided I had to get involved. I
couldn’t sit on the sidelines. I’m
afraid,” Stuccio said. “We have a
huge investment in the county,
and I’m afraid of getting taxed
right out of my house.”
Stuccio wants bite out of budget

Luzerne County Council can-
didate Eugene Kelleher said he
will never blindly cast a vote if
he’s elected.
“I will be prepared so that I
couldmakelogical decisions. Not
political decisions, but logical de-
cisions,” the retiredmathteacher
recently told a Times Leader en-
dorsement panel.
“To get a master’s in mathe-
matics, you cannot get that with-
out being able to reason logical-
ly.”
Kelleher said he’s already dug
into county spend-
ing and grilled sev-
eral officials who
understand the
county, including
county Controller
Walter Griffith. Kel-
leher saidhe helpedrunGriffith’s
campaign for office.
“I’m learning some things that
really turn my stomach about the
way this county’s run,” Kelleher
said, citing elimination of waste
and financial responsibility
among his top priorities.
He also said he’ll inform the
media if he sees questionable ac-
tivities or decisions.
The county has a fleet of about
320 vehicles, and many are un-
derutilized, he said. Despite the
availability of vehicles, the coun-
ty pays employees mileage to use
their own vehicles to travel out-
side the area for meetings, he
said. Vehicles should be sold if
they’re not being used to save the
county on maintenance and in-
surance, he said.
Switching financial software
programs and installing an auto-
mated collection system at the
county’s Water Street parkade
would also save the county mon-
ey, he said.
Kelleher said he also supports
consolidation of services to save
money and would encourage the
new county manager to recom-
mend savings that the county
could attempt to negotiate into
union contracts as old agree-
ments expire.
“The bottom line should be
that the union people and the
county council and the manager
say, ‘How can we best spend the
taxpayers’ money?’”
He served on Plymouth Coun-
cil in 1980, elected after 12 bor-
ough residents were convicted of
voter fraud.
He has also served as a Little
League coach, church choir di-
rector and high school coach and
started an ecumenical group in
the Back Mountain after he re-
tired five years ago.
“I’veworkedwithpeopleall my
life and I’ve learned that I can dis-
agree without being disagreea-
ble,” he said. “I think one of the
problems we’ve had in this coun-
ty is we’ve had poor leadership
where people don’t know how to
say no once in awhile.”
He wants the newcounty man-
ager to have the ability to say no.
He also wants someone with a
background in county govern-
ment and a history of being inde-
pendent.
“I want them to be tough,” he
said of the manager.
Kelleher says he
will be prepared

Luzerne County Council can-
didate Robert Webb saidhe’s pre-
paredtohelpoversee countygov-
ernment because he’s been work-
ing for Duryea borough in vari-
ous capacities since 1984.
Webb said he’s familiar with
municipal budgets and grants,
understands the state andfederal
government struc-
ture and has com-
municated effec-
tively with bor-
ough council and
the borough man-
ager.
“I have hands-on experience of
learning how to deal with differ-
ent agencies throughout the
state of Pennsylvania and the
county,” he recently told a Times
Leader endorsement panel.
He was initially hired as an
emergencyservices dispatcher in
the borough and later handled
the filing of police records.
Webb left the borough in 1999
to work in a locomotive repair
shop and was elected to borough
council in 2002.
When his council term wrap-
ped up in 2005, Webb was hired
to work in the borough street de-
partment and was promoted to
building and grounds director in
2007.
He also served on the borough
sewer authority, a 911 transition
team and was the borough’s first
code enforcement officer.
Webb said he voted for the
county’s home rule charter and
decided to run because he has a
“passion for politics” and helping
people.
“If I sat back and didn’t try to
run, then I have no right to crit-
icize. Winor lose, at least I tried,”
he said.
Webb said he’s been talking to
county employees to obtain their
suggestions to improve county
government. Many employees
say the county has too many
managers, he said.
“I’d need to look at that,” he
said.
He believes the county should
store records at the former Valley
Crest Nursing Home in Plains
Township instead of spending
money to buy or build a facility.
The county has unsuccessfully
attemptedto sell the Valley Crest
property.
“It was good enough for pa-
tients. Why can’t we store re-
cords there?” Webb said. “Why
not fix up your own building and
it will be yours? No more rent.”
Webb said he wants a county
manager with proven experience
and people skills. He supports a
national searchbut saidhewould
not exclude county residents.”
He said would respect the
opinions of other county council
members.
“You need other people to
work with you. You’ve got to take
their ideas into consideration. I
can’t come in there as a one-man
show,” Webb said.
However, Webb said he would
make up his own mind and
wouldn’t succumb to pressure.
He said he cast a controversial
vote to terminate a police chief
when he was on Duryea council.
“I’m not afraid to make tough
decisions,” Webb said.

Luzerne County Council can-

said he voted for the county’s
homerulecharter anddecidedto
run for the new council office af-
ter it passed.
“I thought this
could be a night-
mare. If the wrong
people get in, this
could be worse
than we previously
had,” the Exeter
Township man recently told a
Times Leader endorsement pan-
el.
Ksiezopolski saidhe’s handled
budgets in his positions as for-
mer Exeter Township police
chief and a manager at a private
securitycompany. He’s currently
a sheriff deputy in neighboring
Lackawanna County.
“I’m the everyday Joe. I don’t
want to see taxes go up. If at all
possible, I’ll hold the line on ex-
penses. I know how to handle
money. I know how to watch
things.”
He supports selling unneeded
county assets and eliminating
“redundancies.” He promises to
streamline and downsize the
government but said he’s not
contemplating layoffs at this
time.
“My pledge is I’m going to do
everything I can to hold the line
and find other ways of gaining
revenue,” Ksiezopolski said.
He promises to keep county
business open to the public and
said he’s “always truthful, some-
times to a fault.”
“I’ll be their watchdog. There
will be nothing slipped through.
There’s goingtobecompleteand
total transparency on my part,”
Ksiezopolski said.
Hewants thenewcountyman-
ager to have a business back-
ground, someexperienceinlocal

nized, a team player and able to
multitask. The residency of the
person doesn’t matter to him.
“Everybody would like to say,
‘Yeah, let’s hire from our home-
town.’ What I have to say on that
issue is let’s hire who’s going to
be best for our hometown. It
doesn’t matter where they come
from as long as they’re going to
be the best person for that posi-
tion,” he said.
Ksiezopolski, who is vice pres-
ident of the Citizens Opposing
Political Suppression govern-
ment watchdog group, said he
would keep his job in Lackawan-
na County if he’s elected. He said
he doesn’t foresee a conflict be-
cause he handles prisoner trans-
port and courtroomsecurity and
does not have a managerial post
there.
Lackawanna and Luzerne
counties are engaged in counter-
suits over their joint purchase of
the Triple-A baseball franchise.
Ksiezopolski said those dis-
agreements over the proposed
franchise sale proceeds will be
decided in court.
He said he “would be fighting
for what’s best for LuzerneCoun-
ty” as a council member.

Luzerne County Council
candidate M. Theresa Mor-
cavage said she understands
county government because
she worked in it for 22 years.
“When you work in a sit-
uation on a daily basis you
get to see things that are be-
ing done properly and things
that are not,” the
Plymouth wom-
an recently told
a Times Leader
endorsement
panel.
Morcavage said the county
was in the black when she
started working for the coun-
ty as a part-time worker in
1986. She became a full-time
worker in the mapping de-
partment when a position
opened up about two years
later, working as a draftsman
plotting maps and property
boundary lines.
She retired in November
2008 and served as chief
union steward for the Amer-
ican Federation of State,
County and Municipal Em-
ployees (AFSCME) union in
the county the last seven
years of her employment.
Morcavage said she be-
lieves the county can be in
the black again by cutting
unnecessary spending that is
a “drain” on the budget, pos-
sibly by addressing the sala-
ries and number of positions
in management.
“For me personally, I
would watch over how much
management was hired,
keeping the salaries at a rea-
sonable amount,” Morcavage
said.
She said she saw excessive
non-union pay increases rais-
es and job creations, though
she declined to identify the
offices.
Furloughing a large num-
ber of workers wouldn’t be
viable, she said, because
many departments are run-
ning on a “skeleton crew.”
Morcavage is part of an 11-
member Democratic slate en-
dorsed by area unions. The
group is promising to clean
up and restore faith in coun-
ty government and seek and
preserve jobs.
She said her first loyalty
will be to county taxpayers,
and she would choose spend-
ing cuts over a tax increase.
“Right now the average ci-
tizen is having enough prob-
lems paying their taxes. I
know personally mine went
up,” Morcavage said, describ-
ing her encounter with a
woman in her mid-80s who
had to work at a local retail
store because she couldn’t af-
ford to keep her home and
pay her medical expenses.
“I think that to me is a dis-
grace in this country.”
She wants the new county
manager to have experience
with home rule and a reputa-
tion for being honest and
ethical. She said a local per-
son may “strive more to
bring the county up,” but she
would not rule out appli-
cants from other areas.
Morcavage said her educa-
tion level isn’t as advanced
as some of her opponents,
but she has an “analytical
mind.”
“You give me a problem,
I’ll take it, and I’ll make an
opportunity to make change,
to improve wherever I can. I
will research whatever I have
to research in order to do
that,” she said.

Luzerne County Council
candidate Edward Warkevicz
said his business sense and
39.5 years in the insurance in-
dustry would benefit tax-
payers if he’s elected.
“A lot of our officials in the
past in my opinion have not
had any common sense. I’ve
gone to meetings, and it’s like
a rubber stamp,”
the Lehman
Township resi-
dent recently told
a Times Leader
endorsement pan-
el.
Warkevicz said he wants to
freeze county taxes and cut out
“all the waste” and said he’s
running on a pledge to eventu-
ally decrease taxes.
He said he’s voiced his con-
cerns about county spending
at county commissioner meet-
ings and has been consulting
regularly with county Con-
troller Walter Griffith to iden-
tify potential cuts.
He points to county vehicles
that sit idle while taxpayers
cover the insurance and pay
mileage to some workers to
use their own vehicles for
county business. The county’s
Water Street parkade generat-
ed about $10,200 in revenue
last year, but a security worker
was paid about $31,000, in-
cluding benefits, to accept
tolls because there is no auto-
matic collection system, he
said.
“There’s so much waste,”
Warkevicz said.
Warkevicz rattled off dollar
figures on the county’s past
borrowing and tax increases
and said he would push coun-
cil to implement past recom-
mendations made by the coun-
ty’s outside financial recovery
consultant, Public Financial
Management.
He believes the county
should consider subdividing
the county-owned Valley Crest
Nursing Home property in
Plains Township to make
space for a new record storage
center if one is needed, rather
than paying hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars to purchase
land.
Warkevicz did not support
the home rule charter, saying
he believes the manager
should be elected and that the
controller’s power to stop
checks should be restored.
He said he would want a
manager who will “run the
county like a business,” and
Warkevicz said he would insist
on an exhaustive examination
of the chosen applicant’s past
work experience.
“We have to get a manager
that has no ties whatsoever to
anybody in this county,” he
said. “I don’t care if we have to
go 3,000 miles to find some-
body -- no political ties whatso-
ever to anybody in this coun-
ty.”
Unions aren’t the “big prob-
lem” in county government,
Warkevicz said.
“I think management is a
bigger problem than the
unions,” he said. “I feel man-
agement has caused the major-
ity of the problems that we
have for basically mismanage-
ment and misspending.”
Warkevicz said he doesn’t
need a college degree to under-
stand what needs to be done.
“I have a PhD in common
sense. That’s my degree – on-
the-job training.”

be forgiven, no matter the depth
of failure.
Her faith in Faustina is so
strong she joined a national lay
group of believers, is a key force
in the annual celebration of Div-
ing Mercy Sunday at the St. Jo-
seph’s Oblate Seminary, and
owns a relic – a tiny fragment of
bone – fromFaustina, ensconced
in a sterling silver representa-
tion of Jesus Christ called a
“monstrance.”
Today’s celebration at Divine
Mercy Sunday at the Oblates –
always a standing-room-only
event, Mack noted – takes on
special importance because it al-
so marks the beatification of
Pope John Paul II, a man Mack
insists was the personification of
Divine Mercy.
Consider his trip to a jail cell
to forgive the man who attempt-
ed to assassinate him, or his re-
lentless public appearances in
his later years despite declining
health.
“He was the best,” Mack said
of the pope who, after today will
officially be known as Blessed
John Paul II. “He suffered so
much. He was so sick and in so
much pain, yet he went to all dif-
ferent continents and countries,
and the youth loved him.”
St. Faustina an inspiration
Mack said she discovered St.
Faustina in 1996 when, while at-
tending services at St. Rocco
ChurchinPittstonthe Sunday af-
ter Easter, her pastor pointed
her to a pamphlet about a special
service to the saint at a Plains
Township church.
“All of a sudden I felt like
something came over me, I can’t
describe it,” Mack recalled. “I
said, ‘I don’t know what this is,
but I have to be there.’ … From
that day on, I feel I was chosen to
help spread this.”
“This” is the message of Faus-
tina, who, according to the Vat-
ican website, was born the third
of 10 children in a poor Polish
family in1905. She became a reli-
gious sister in 1925 and experi-
enced numerous revelations,
prophecies and visions before
dying at the age of 33 fromtuber-
culosis. She wrote a long diary of
her experiences.
John Paul II, also Polish born
as Karol Josef Wojtyla, was only
18 when Faustina died, and
thanks to the interruption of Na-
zi occupation, he didn’t become
a priest until 1946.
But his religious studies drew
him quickly to the story of Faus-
tina, according to St. Joseph’s
Oblate Seminary Rector Rev.
Paul McDonnell, a self described
“John Paul II junkie.”
Faustina’s message was never
given much Vatican attention be-
fore the future pope became
archbishop of Krakow in 1964,
McDonnell said. John Paul “res-
urrected” the story of Faustina,
and after becoming pope in1978
he supported efforts to make her
a saint, canonizing her in 2000.
Three miracles credited
Mack credits three miracles to
her devotion to St Faustina: Her
late father’s recovery and surviv-
al for several years despite being
told “there was no hope” follow-
ing a cerebral hemorrhage; her
mother’s recovery and several-
year survival from a mini-stroke
that left her bedridden for a
month, and her own discovery
that surgery she was initially
told would be necessary ended
up being unneeded.
“I’m telling you, it was unbe-
lievable,” Mack said.
She obtained a tiny fragment
of bone from St. Faustina
through the late Rev. Louis Gar-
bacik, a Hazleton priest of Polish
descent who visitedhis ancestral
home often and had acquired the
relic in a sterling silver mon-
strance. Mack got permission to
own it – which, McDonnell said,
is allowed by the Church – and
said she has willed it back to the
Church upon her death. The rel-
ic will be on display as part of to-
day’s services.
The beatification and expect-
ed eventual canonization into
sainthood of John Paul II has not
been without controversy.
As the National Catholic Re-
porter noted in January when
the Vatican first set a date for be-
atification, some of the Church’s
more liberal members contend
the push for John Paul II is an ef-
fort to solidify the strength of
more conservative clerics who
found John Paul II’s tenure more
appropriate than earlier, more
liberal popes.
More troubling to some in the
lay world, however, may be com-
plaints fromvictims of the global
clerical sex abuse scandal who
contend John Paul II’s response
to the scandals merits a slower
approach to sainthood – if saint-
hood is justified at all.
On Friday the U.S.-based Sur-
vivors Network of those Abused
by Priests, or SNAP – which crit-
icized the choice of Joseph Bam-
bera as Diocese of ScrantonBish-
op last year – issued a statement
criticizing the beatification.
“Little can be done by Catholic
officials to erase the pain of hun-
dreds of thousands of deeply
wounded men, women and chil-
dren who have been sexually as-
saulted by clergy,” the statement
said. “But the church hierarchy
CAN avoid rubbing more salt in-
to these wounds by slowing
down their hasty drive to confer
sainthood on the pontiff under
whose reign most of the count-
less, widely-documented clergy
sex crimes and cover ups took
place.”
McDonnell remembers pope
McDonnell, however, knew
John Paul II personally, having
met and worked for the pontiff
multiple times. He recalls a man
capable of connecting onbothre-
ligious and personal terms.
When McDonnell was or-
dained a deacon in Rome, he had
the opportunity to bring his fam-
ily to watch the pope celebrate
Mass in a private chapel. “You
could feel the union he had with
God, and to feel that first hand,
to me that was a powerful thing,”
McDonnell said. “And then there
was the social part of him. He
was very interested in me being
ordained, in me introducing him
to my parents and family. There
was a gleam in his eye.
“My uncle was Slovak,”
McDonnell recalled, and at one
point, with the pope’s back to
him, the uncle “said something
in Slovak, and the pope turned
and spoke back to himin Slovak.
“There was the deep, spiritual
and contemplative side, then
there was the social side,”
McDonnell said, “And I think
that’s the balance we all try to
strike.”

cle neededto beatify JohnPaul, a process
that will reach its culmination today dur-
ingaMassinSt. Peter’sSquarecelebrated
by Pope Benedict XVI.
Benedict put John Paul on the fast-
track for possible sainthood when he dis-
pensedwiththetraditional five-year wait-
ing period and allowed the beatification
process to begin weeks after his April 2,
2005 death. Benedict was responding to
chants of “Santo Subito” or “Sainthood
Immediately”whicheruptedduringJohn
Paul’s funeral.
On Saturday night, a “Santo Subito”
banner was emblazonedonthesideof the
Circus Maximus field, and film of John
Paul’s final moments and his funeral re-
mindedthosegatheredof thetearful days
many had witnessed six years earlier,
when St. Peter’s overflowed with some 3
million people paying their last respects
to the pope.
“He died a saint,” Cardinal Stanislaw
Dziwisz, John Paul’s longtime secretary,
told the crowd.
The vigil was to last all night, a so-
called “white night” of prayer to be con-
tinued in eight churches kept open in the
city center before barricades around St.
Peter’s Square open to pilgrims at 5:30
a.m. for the 10 a.m. beatification Mass.
The Mass will begin at 4 a.m. Eastern
Daylight Time.
The beatification is taking place de-
spiteasteadydrumbeat of criticismabout
the record-fast speed with which John
Paul is beinghonored, andcontinuedout-
rage about the clerical abuse scandal:
Many of the crimes and cover-ups of
priests who raped children occurred on
John Paul’s 27-year watch.
“I hope he didn’t knowabout the pedo-
philes,” said Sister Maria Luisa Garcia, a
Spanishnunattendingthevigil. “If hedid,
it was anerror. But no one is perfect, only
God.”
At the very least, she said, the church
had learned as a result of the scandal,
“that a person’s dignity, especially a
child’s, is more important than the
church’s image.”
Videomontages shownduringthevigil
showed various scenes of John Paul’s
lengthy pontificate, his teachings about
marriage and justice.

SWOYERSVILLE – Pride and
camaraderie were strong at the
American Legion Post 644 on
Saturday night as the 92ndAerial
Port Squadron Reserve met to
celebrate, commemorate and
share in the memories made by
the Wyoming-based reserve unit
throughout its years of existence.
“It gives us the opportunity to
come together as a group, rekin-
dle our memories and break
some bread with our friends,”
said Master Sgt. George A. Sher-
man III. “It also reconnects us to-
gether. And it’s obviously really
great to get together with our
comrades in arms.”
The unit, based at nearby of
Wyoming Valley Airport, was ac-
tive in Luzerne County for 51
years. The group was a participa-
nt ina wide array of major United
States military endeavors includ-
ing Vietnam, Desert Storm, and
Desert Shield. In early 2006, 24
members of the unit spent more
than a month in Iraq.
However, the reserve unit was
disbanded in September 2006 in
the midst of government cut-
backs and downsizing. Since
then, 22-year vet Mike Tressa has
spearheaded the reunion efforts.
“We shareda lot. We went over-
seas together. We were together
24/7, non-stop. These guys be-
came family,” said Tressa.
Even though the reserve unit
has been disbanded for several
years now, they still see an influx
of former unit members both
young and old making their way
to each year’s reunion.
“If you look around this room
you’ll see guys in their seventies
andguys intheir forties. Everybo-
dy still has something in com-
mon,” said retired Lt. Col. Pa-
trickJ. Riley. The unit takes pride
in the ability to get together ev-
ery year, a feat Riley says is im-
pressive.
“Other units gather every five
or every 10 years, or they have
one or two and they stop. But
we’ve kept this going for four
years and it’s a pretty great turn-
out every year.”
Saturdaynight’s annual gather-
ing featured roughly 50 of the
nearly 130 enlisted members in-
cluding three officers.
For those who served – friendship rules

Asgaspricescontinuetoclimb,
so does the number of people us-
ing public transportation.
According to ridership reports
from the Luzerne County Trans-
portation Authority, there were
4.7 percent more people riding
county buses in the first three
months of 2011
than in the first
three months of
2010.
“I think it
would have to
be the price of
gas,” saidLCTA
Executive Di-
rector Stanley
Strelish.
The biggest
spike in rider-
ship came in
February, as gas prices had
climbed from $3.15 per gallon on
Feb. 1to$3.34byMarch1. Theav-
erage daily number of people rid-
ingthe bus inFebruary was about
10 percent higher than the aver-
age number inFebruary 2010.
March bus ridership numbers
were only about 1 percent higher
thanthose inMarch2010.
“The way it is at this point, the
people who want to park their
cars have done so,” Strelishsaid.
April ridership numbers were
not yet available.
Strelish predicts there will be
another spike in gas prices, and
bus ridership will see another in-
crease.
Fortunately, fuel costs for the
authorityhaven’t escalated…yet.
Last year, theauthoritysecured
a flat rate of $2.56 per gallon for
diesel fuel that remains in effect
until June 30.
Plus, the replacement of eight
decade-old traditional diesel fuel
buses with eight new diesel-elec-
tric hybrid buses will reduce the
authority’s diesel fuel usage by
about 30,000 gallons this year,
Strelishsaid.
The authority will save even
more infiscal year 2012 whenfive
more new diesel-electric hybrids
are expectedto be put inservice.
Strelishsaidthebusesareonor-
der from Gillig LLC in San Fran-
cisco. But demand for the hybrid
buses is so great, the authority’s
new hybrids won’t be ready until
July 2012, he said.

teamof recruits fromhis post called area
American Legions looking for replace-
ment holders, which vary in design by
war, and by the end of the week had col-
lectedall but a handful, whichhe tracked
downat aVFWinHarrisburg. TheNanti-
coke American Legion also donated 150
Americanflags toreplace those left lying
in the mud after the theft of the markers.
Thecrowdthat gatheredSaturdaywas
appreciative of Horning’s work, even if
the thefts still left a sour taste in their
mouths.
“I’m so happy that they’re replacing
them,” said Dorothy Tarnowski, of Glen
Lyon, who first reported the thefts after
she discovered her cousin’s marker mis-
sing. “It’s what I hoped would happen.”
Janine Floryshak of Glen Lyon had
tears in her eyes as she replaced the
marker on her cousin, Brian Patton’s
grave. Patton was killed while on active
duty in Kuwait two years ago.
“To get killed in the line of duty and
then someone steals your marker,” she
said incredulously.
State Rep. GeraldMullery, D-Newport
Township, turned out to the event to pay
his respects to the families gathered at
the cemetery and to support Horning.
Mullery said constituents have con-
tacted him about the theft and that his
staff is nowstudying the state’s power to
increase penalties for theft of veteran’s
markers and to implement a monitoring
system at scrap yards to prevent them
from accepting the markers.
“If there is somethingthat canbe done
onbothissues I will introducelegislation
on both of those issues,” Mullery said,
adding that he plans to introduce a reso-
lution honoring Horning’s efforts in the
House soon.

nior fromUnionDale, Susquehan-
na County, has been carpooling
all four years she’s been at Keys-
tone. Begun as a common sense
practice out of convenience, she
said the savings so far is likely in
excess of $1,000, which paid for a
few semesters’ worth of books.
And it’s resulted in one more ben-
efit.
Wil Kratz, of Pleasant Mount,
Wayne County, started as a class-
mate and car pool mate. He’s
since become her actual mate.
The two have been dating the
past fewyears, somethingMadrid
saidmight not have happenedif it
weren’t for the numerous 45-min-
ute rides to and fromthe campus.
Geisinger has its own car pool
system, dubbed “RideSh-
are@Geisinger.” The service is an
internal program that offers em-
ployees the opportunity to con-
tact coworkers along their route
to set up a car pool.
Sincebeingintroducedin2008,
the program has enrolled more
than 400 Geisinger employees
and created 67 car pools that the
health system said has removed
the equivalent of 134 cars from
daily commuter traffic.
A notice that went out to all
company employees on Wednes-
day reminded Geisinger employ-
ees of the program.
“To offset volatile gas prices
that canspike quickly at any time,
use RideShare as an effective and
enjoyable cost-saver, energy-saver
and friend-maker!” the reminder
states.
Pump pain
Vickie Halsey, an administra-
tive assistant at the health sys-
tem’s Route 315administrative of-
fice, signed up for the program
this past week and hopes to be
matchedsoonwithacar pool bud-
dy.
Shelives 40miles awayinPoco-
no Summit, Monroe County and
said the rising cost of gas “is kill-
ing me.”
“I’m really feeling it,” said Hal-
sey, who began working for Geis-
inger in December and said since
that time her weekly gas costs
have risen $15. Halsey said she’s
scaled back some spending her
lunch every day, foregoing what
was a twice-a-week eating out
habit.
Though King’s College doesn’t
actively try to match employees
upfor car pools, a pair of Sodexho
food service employees working
at the Wilkes-Barre college start-
ed one on their own.
Mary Wood and Lou Mazza,
who live about eight miles apart
in northern Lackawanna County,
decided six months ago to start
carpoolingsomedays. Asgaspric-
es rose, so did the frequency the
two shared a ride.
Nowit’s almost a daily practice.
Mazza drives his Ford Escape
from Dalton to Wood’s Clarks
Summit home and either they
drive to Wilkes-Barre in the Ford
or theyleavetheEscapeat Wood’s
house and take her Toyota Camry
to work. They said the savings in
gas amounts toabout $30for each
of them per week.
“It works out great,” Woodsaid.
Motoring mindsets
AAA Mid-Atlantic spokeswo-
manJanaL. Tidwell saidcar pools
are a smart way to combat rising
fuel prices but cautioned that the
best ideas aren’t always ones
American motorists choose.
“We are a country of motorists,
and people like that control,” she
said, explaining why car pools
haven’t caught on as much as one
might think.
“You relinquish some control,”
Tidwell said, something many
don’t want to do unless circum-
stances force them to. “(We) like
to get in our car and come and go
as we please and go where we
want when we want. The longer
gas prices remain at or near these
near-record prices, I think you’ll
seepeoplerelinquishsomeof that
control.”
Anthony Liuzzo, professor of
Business and Economics and the
director of the MBA program at
Wilkes University, said carpools
throw a wrench into people’s rou-
tines and for many people change
is hard.
“People don’t want to change
their day-to-day routines. There’s
always a tendency to avoid mak-
ingmajor changes likethat,” Liuz-
zo said.
But rising gas prices, coupled
with a still struggling economy
and rising prices for food, clothes
and utilities, is one thing that
could change human habits.
However, Liuzzo said, just get-
ting to $4 per gallon isn’t enough
to cause that seismic shift.
“It will depend on how long it
lasts. If it’s a spike, people will
grouse about it and complain but
they won’t change anything un-
less it lasts longer term,” the pro-
fessor added.
While gas prices are out of her
hands, Boyle said she hopes they
start a decline soon. She antici-
pates spending a couple hundred
dollarsinthefewmonthsuntil her
pregnant coworker comes backto
work this fall.
By that time, some experts pre-
dict gasmight not onlyhavecross-
ed the $4 plateau but perhaps
even the $5 one.
“I don’t see that happening that
quickly,” said Liuzzo, but with
what’s going on in the Middle
East, he said nothing can be ruled
out.

CAR POOLING

the $4 benchmark. The crossing
of that price mark led to many
creative ways to combat the pain
at the pump.
Websites sprung up that
helped motorists find the cheap-
est gas in a selected region.
Terms entered the lexicon such
as “staycation,” “cash for clunk-
ers,” and “one-tank trips.”
And employers and employees
got creative with four-day work
weeks, telecommuting and car
pools. Park-and-rides were
jammed, mass transit saw a
spike in ridership, making one
trip to do all of your shopping
was the smart thing to do and
Congress got involved by eyeing
speculators who were blamed
for inflating the price even
though there was no supply and
demand issue.
But the price dipped down
below $4 on July 23 of that year
and then below $3 by Oct. 18. By
Dec. 1, 2008 they had plummet-
ed below $2 a gallon on average
in the Wilkes-Barre region.
Speculators were quickly
forgotten about. Vacations to far
away lands resumed. Driving to
the grocery store for just a hand-
ful of items was seen as accept-
able once again and the four-day
work weeks, carpools and tele-
commuting that some employ-
ees had just begun to get accus-
tomed to were scaled back.
Prices on rise
And then Dec. 4, 2010 arrived
and with it came gas prices back
over $3 a gallon in the region.
The excuses followed: Unrest
in the Middle East. Slow eco-
nomic recovery. Gulf of Mexico
drilling issues.
. And then came more Mid-
east unrest and a devastating
earthquake and tsunami in Ja-
pan.
Through it all, gas prices kept
rising. Some days with a greater
leap than others but mostly a
steady climb of a penny or two
a+ day. In a 12-day span from
March 29 through April 9, the
local average rose more than 19
cents.
AAA Mid-Atlantic spokeswo-
man Jana L. Tidwell said that
motorists have been mentally
prepared for the $4 mark.
Though some have begun taking
precautions and changing driv-
ing habits, until that $4 is posted
on the price sign at the local
fueling station, changes won’t
truly kick into gear.
The difference for the average
motorists between a $3.85 cent
gallon of gas and a $4 gallon of
gas is $5 per week, said Liuzzo.
But for some reason, “we see
that number over $4 and it kind
of shakes us into reality.”
It truly is more mental than
financial, he said.
“When we see that $4 mark,
psychologically … we think we’ll
see some movement,” Tidwell
said.
That movement includes
employer-encouraged car pools,
something that some employers
initiated in 2008 and never did
away with. Among those who
still promote the idea are Geis-
inger Health System, Sanofi
Pasteur, Benco Dental and Keys-
tone College.
Short-termmemory
When Frontier Communi-
cations announced in March
that employees in the local cen-
ter’s inbound call center have
been offered the chance to take
part in the company’s growing
work-from-home program, it had
nothing to do with the rising gas
prices. But company spokeswo-
man Patricia Amendola said the
pump prices may influence
those who had not taken up the
offer.
Other large employers, in-
cluding Wilkes-Barre General
Hospital and Misericordia Uni-
versity, said that four-day work
weeks, telecommuting and
carpooling are not on the hori-
zon for employees at this time,
but spokespeople cautioned that
it’s not out of the realm of possi-
bilities if gas prices continue to
climb.
Misericordia University in
Dallas Township instituted
four-day work weeks in the
summer of 2008 but once the
fall semester began that year,
the shortened work-week ended
and it hasn’t come back.
Liuzzo said that Americans
seem to need a long-term wa-
keup call to have long lasting
change.
There was a lot of talk three
years ago about getting new,
fuel-efficient vehicles, making
better spending choice, scaling
back on buying items that you
can’t truly afford.
But then gas prices plummet-
ed and changes that could have
helped make the high gas prices
easier to swallow were curtailed.
“I think, unfortunately, the
lessons were short-lived and
short-learned,” Liuzzo said.
He said the recent recession
America is slowly emerging
from didn’t last long enough to
make deep, meaningful change
in our society.
He references those who lived
through the Great Depression
and said they lived the rest of
their lives saving, living within
their means and proudly not
going into debt.
“That never left them,” Liuzzo
said. “I don’t think the recent
recession has left an indelible
scar on our psyche.”

While many working in North-
eastern Pennsylvania could like-
ly find car pool partners if they
tried, Rodney Ridley is not
among them.
The Wilkes University profes-
sor, who is director of the
school’s engineering program,
commutes two hours from Qua-
kertown, in Bucks County, every
day.
“Seventy five miles each way,
150 miles roundtrip,” Ridley
said.
When he first took his job at
Wilkes two years ago, gas was
about $2.50 a gallon.
He said the $4 mark won’t faze
him any more than the $3 mark
did.
“When it was $2.80 I was
thinking about it,” said Ridley,
45.
He said what was once a $60
fill up for his BMW X5 is now
setting him back $90. And he
quickly points out it’s something
he does at least twice a week.
Even if he found someone to
carpool with, even part of the
way, he said his schedule pre-
cludes it from being a viable op-
tion.
“I don’t think I could do it. As
the chairman of my department,
my hours are all over the place,”
he said.
Instead he makes the trek
alone and fully responsible for
the ever increasing cost of each
fill up.
He knows he has other op-
tions but doesn’t see them as
cost savers.
“You think about it but what
are your options?” he asked. He
said buying a new car that’s per-
haps slightly more fuel efficient
isn’t the answer because his cur-
rent 2004 model is paid off and
having car payments again
would cancel out the gas cost
savings. He enjoys working at
Wilkes and said working closer
to home or moving up here
aren’t on the table at this time.
Plus, he said, he doesn’t want
to put a price on his life.
“The big thing for me was
safety. When you drive as many
miles as I do and take that route
(the turnpike’s Northeast Exten-
sion) you have to ask yourself
‘how much is your life worth?’”
he said.

“I can’t wait to get back on
the field,” Joey said.
As the players arrived at the
park, old friends hugged and
shook hands and smiled as
they talked about what each
has been doing the past 20
years. Many of the players
have jobs. They all thanked
DeSanto for organizing the
Challenger league and they
told him they miss playing.
“We’re thinking about bring-
ing them back for an adult
Challenger League,” DeSanto
said. “They all want to play, so
we’re going to put it together.”
Tux, the Wilkes-Barre/
Scranton Penguins mascot,
was on hand and played a few
innings with the kids. Former
Philadelphia Phillies pitcher
Andy Ashby talked to the kids
and told them they are great
examples of determination.
“You never let anybody tell
you that you couldn’t play
baseball,” Ashby said. “You all
should be proud of what you
accomplished not only on the
baseball field, but in the game
of life. Congratulations.”
DeSanto said plans are un-
derway for a 20th anniversary
banquet for Challenger. He
said details will be announced
soon.
“This has always been about
these kids,” DeSanto said. “To
see them now – 20 years later –
it brings back so many memo-
ries and Challenger is still go-
ing strong today.”

WILKES-BARRE TWP. – There
wasn’t much scoring during the first
two periods of Saturday’s Game 2 of the
East Division Finals between the
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and
Charlotte Checkers.
But there was plenty of dislike.
Crushing hits along the boards, leng-
thy scrums in front of the net and plenty
of roughing minors put some emotion
and intensity into the series.
“It’s the AHL playoffs. There’s going
to be nastiness, big hits and tempers
flaring. That’s what it’s all about,” said
the Penguins’ Brett Sterling.
Goals from Sterling and Chris Col-
lins, along with a shutout from Brad
Thiessen, put the Penguins in the win
column.
Sterling’s goal in the second period
proved to be the game-winner, and
Thiessen stopped all 34 shots he faced
for his first postseason shutout to lead
the Penguins to a 3-0 win over Char-

young season.
The trouble
with runners on
base began in
the first inning
when Scranton/
Wilkes-Barre
loaded the bases
against Gwin-
nett starter Julio
Teheran, but
failed to push across a run. The
Braves’ top prospect struck out
two in the frame, including get-
ting Brandon Laird swinging to
end the threat.
The Yankees stranded at least
one runner in all but the sixth in-
ning against the G-Braves. The
right-hander Teheran did not al-
low an earned run, pitching six
innings, allowing seven Yankee
hits and striking out seven.
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre starter
David Phelps opened the game
with three straight strikeouts of
G-Braves’ batters as he looked to
build off his last two strong out-
ings.
But the offense never backed
up the starter and Phelps surren-
dered runs in the second, third
and fifth innings. His record
drops to1-3 with a 4.15 ERAafter
allowing three earned runs off
nine hits, one walk and five
strikeouts in seven innings. The
right-hander threw 63 of his 96
pitches for strikes.
Reliever George Kontos
pitched a scoreless eighth in re-
lief.
But the bats never showed up.
Jesus Montero got the Yankees
on the board in the fifth inning
with an RBI single off Teheran.
The unearned run was the catch-
er’s second hit of the game and
his first multiple hit game since
April 23 and just the fifth RBI of
the year for the prospect.

Lacrosse has
growth spurt
Becca Schulman, right, of Wyoming Seminary passes to a teammate as Sam Casto of Dallas pursues close behind in a
recent girls high school lacrosse game in Kingston.
Area schools tackle new sport
Sem goalie Larissa Bohn steps off the field at halftime. Area
girls lacrosse teams play independent schedules during the
regular season before vying for district and PIAA honors.
KINGSTON – It might be America’s fastest-growing sport, but lacrosse certain-
ly took long enough to gain popularity in Northeastern Pennsylvania. A huge
sport in the white-collar suburbs in Baltimore and Long Island, lacrosse spread
quickly around the country in the 2000s. Only recent-
ly has it made an impact in the Wyoming Valley.
In the past three years, interest in the sport has
jumped in the area. In that time, Dallas, Tunkhan-
nock, Crestwood and Lake-Lehman have instituted
boys and girls lacrosse programs, joining Wyoming
Seminary and Delaware Valley as the only schools in
District 2 to field teams.
Tunkhannock boys coach Joe Appolonia said,
“That’s a significant growth for just three years, espe-
cially for this area.”
District 2’s growth in lacrosse coincides with the
sport’s inclusion into the PIAA three years ago. With
165 schools with girls programs and 166 for the boys,
lacrosse still remains the least-participated sport in
the state.
The difference between boys and girls lacrosse is
greater than that of softball and baseball. Both sports
carry separate rules, field measurements, statistics
and equipment. The boys’ game features 10 players
per team; girls lacrosse sports 12 players on the field.
Much of the differences between boys and girls
lacrosse are based on the lack of contact in the girls’
game. In boys lacrosse, it is routine for players to
check and hit each other; girls lacrosse doesn’t allow
contact. There is an imaginary bubble to protect the
head because girls lacrosse players (except for the
goalie) wear goggles and not helmets.
“The rules are different, but the concept is essen-
tially the same,” said Misericordia women’s lacrosse
coach Robyn Fedor Stahovic.
Boys lacrosse is in its inaugural season of the Cen-
tral Susquehanna League. Dallas, Tunkhannock,
Crestwood and Lake-Lehman teamed up with Selins-
grove, State College Area, Lewisburg and Bellefonte
to form an inter-district conference. Wyoming Semi-

hat happens when you take a
hockey player and put him on
a football field?
You get Danny Watkins.
That means the whole essence of a
tough guy.
The newest Philadelphia Eagles
offensive lineman may seem like a
softie, the way he broke out a boyish
grin and politely responded to ques-
tions on the opening day of the NFL
draft.
His mannerisms suggest a meekness
running through his 6-foot-3, 310-
pound frame.
But this is a guy nobody wants to
mess with.
Just ask anyone who tried to square
off with him on the ice during his hock-
ey days that ran through most of his
teenage years up to the midget Tri-
ple-A level.
“I was a defenseman,” said Watkins,
who grew up in Kelowna, British Co-
lumbia. “And then in the latter half of
my career, I was the … designated
goon, I suppose you could say.”
That’s the guy they send out to pum-
mel people to the ice, and Watkins
used that description of himself with a
smile.
But nobody was laughing when he
transferred his fearless mindset and
flurries of fury into the game of foot-
ball.
Because by the time he got to Baylor
University, the guy once tagged as a
goon became known as a gamer.
He played hard, he played hurt and
he played with all-out effort, every
game, every play.
The hockey way became his football
way.
Eagles like Watkins’ toughness
“This was the guy,” said Eagles
coach Andy Reid, who made Watkins
his first-round pick and the 23rd overall
Thursday. “This was the guy we felt we
would love to have. He’ll bring a tough-
ness – which I know the city of Phila-
delphia, they thrive on that.”
So will the Eagles.
They got better immediately by
grabbing Watkins, even if they wasted
a second-round pick on Temple safety
Jaiquawn Jarrett and even if third-
rounder Curtis Marsh, a DB from Utah
State, doesn’t work out.
Because the Eagles desperately need
to stop defenses from pummeling their
spectacular but slender quarterback
Michael Vick, and Watkins can be a big
help with that.
His blocking was so ferocious, Wat-
kins knocked 103 defenders to the
ground in 12 games as a junior offen-
sive tackle at Baylor. He registered 134
knockdowns as a senior last season,
posting the highest grade of any Baylor
lineman in 12 of his 13 games.
That came after Watkins spent his
first two football seasons playing at
Butte Junior College, where he was
talked into trying the game after he
spent four years working as a firefight-
er in Canada.
“One tough nut,” Reid said of his
26-year-old rookie, “and I like that.”
How tough?
NFL defenses are about to find out.
“Play time is over when the game
starts and I like playing physical,” said
Watkins, who grew up cheering for his
hometown Vancouver Canucks but
admired Philadelphia Flyers stars Eric
Lindros and Chris Pronger. “In hockey,
you’re looking for a hit. And in football,
a guy is six inches from your face.
Somebody has to win that battle.
“And I like winning.”
Philadelphia won two Stanley Cup
championships with a team legendary
for intimidating opponents.
Just off Broad Street, the Eagles
found a bully themselves.

holds the single-season record
for wins in a season with 44.
Add The Times Leader Wres-
tler of the Year to that laundry
list.
“The next step always brings
another goal,” Popple said.
“Almost all of the goals I had I
accomplished and the ones I
didn’t achieve I will take with
me to college.”
Popple, who will wrestle and
study at Division I Harvard in
the fall, heads the Wyoming
Valley Conference all-star list by
advancing all the way to the
finals of the PIAA Class 3A
Championships.
By winning the silver medal
at states, the standout became
just the third Crusader to reach
the state finals. He joined Bill
Pfeffer (1975) and Chuck Chula-
da (1968) as the only state final-
ists in school history. He ended
his impressive career second on
the school’s all-time wins list
with 132 and just 29 losses. He
only trails 2007 grad Justin
Accordino (150 wins) on the
school’s victories list.
“Just getting into the school I
got into which let me attend a
Division I college on that level is
the most notable,” Popple said.
His promising career got off
to a booming start his sopho-
more year when he won the first
tournament he participated in –
the Tunkhannock Kiwanis Tour-
nament. Not only did he win
that event, he took home the
Outstanding Wrestler Award. It
was the first of three gold med-
als at that tournament, his most
at any tourney.
“The confidence boost (the
2008 win) gave me, it really
prepared me for the years to
come,” Popple said. “Winning
each match and beating (Shane)
Stark in the semis to just get
into the finals as a sophomore
was great because it was the
first time I was in the finals. And
to be in my first tournament
ever and to get that win was
really great.”
That overtime win over Lake-
Lehman’s Stark – who was a
third-place finisher in the state
in 2010 – was one of several
memorable battles Popple en-
dured during his career.
Look at the 2010 District 2
Class 3A championship final
when he defeated Hazleton
Area’s Jared Kay in the final
seconds to claim his first district
title. He followed the same
dramatic script in 2011 when he
knocked off Crestwood’s Mike
Mirra en route to winning his
second-straight Outstanding
Wrestler Award in the D2 tour-
nament.
In between those two match-
es was a triple-overtime thriller
with Mirra in the finals of the
Wyoming Valley Conference
Tournament back in January
when the two WVC titans had
the Lake-Lehman gym packed
and on the edge of their seats
throughout the match.
He wrestled Kay five times
his junior season and Mirra four
times this past season.
“Those matches with Kay and
Mirra and (Dallas’ Adam) Goer-
inger in the district, those are
the ones you like the most,”
Popple said.
Popple also appreciates the
instruction his head coach Steve
Stahl and assistants Rubin
Prophete and Bob Hawkins and
his dad, Mark, provided
throughout his career.
“Their coaching is what got
me to that level so I have to
thank them all.”

nary plays as a prep independ-
ent and is not part of PIAA
boys lacrosse.
Local girls lacrosse teams
play independent schedules
during the regular season
before vying for the district
and state crown. Local boys
teams also will compete for
PIAA honors.
The Wyoming Seminary
girls lacrosse team joined the
PIAA this year and Blue
Knight girls coach Catie Ker-
say is excited in the sport’s
growth locally. Previously, the
Blue Knights traveled as far as
Buffalo, N.Y., for their games.
“It’s exciting to see some
programs grow since we used
to spend so much time trav-
eling to New York state and
Philadelphia for games,” said
Kersay. “There is such amaz-
ing female talent in this area,
and lacrosse would be a per-
fect fit for them.”
Part of the problem of gen-
erating interest is finding
good coaches locally. Stahovic
said that softball, baseball and
offseason field hockey are
very entrenched sports in the
spring and summer months.
“It’s so foreign that it’s hard
to bring in something new,”
Stahovic said. “The trick is
finding coaches who have
experience playing lacrosse,
and not parents that are read-
ing books on lacrosse. In
other states, kids are getting a
stick in their hand as early as
elementary school.”
Kersay said girls lacrosse
will become more popular
because of the elimination of
girls soccer as a spring sport
in the coming years. With five
area Division III college pro-
grams – King’s, Wilkes, Miser-
icordia, Marywood and Scran-
ton – having summer camps
for youth players, lacrosse will
be an easy transition for field
hockey, ice hockey and bas-
ketball players.
“Some of the local colleges
having programs and camps
really boosts the enthusiasm
and skill sets for kids. Now
girls are learning in middle
school as opposed to being
freshmen,” said Kersay.
“(PIAA recognizing lacrosse)
has given our girls something
more to play for. The meaning
of each game means more,
and I hope that it will trans-
late well.”
Tunkhannock’s Appolonia
said that he is trying to get
more schools involved so he
can create a Wyoming Valley
league to cut down on trans-
portation costs. With school
districts’ budgetary crunches,
District 2 chairman Frank
Majikes isn’t overly optimistic
about the growth of lacrosse
in the near future.
“With the budget crisis,’’ he
said, “I don’t know how many
schools are going to be start-
ing lacrosse programs.”
While schools such as
Tunkhannock are funded by
their school districts, some
teams are forced to be funded
externally. Dallas is funded by
its booster club, which sup-
ports both its boys and girls
team.
Equipment can be expen-
sive. Appolonia said that boys
lacrosse equipment is compa-
rable to the cost of ice hockey.
A set of used equipment costs
$100, while a new set can be
approximately $250. Girls’
equipment is much cheaper
and is similar to the costs of
playing field hockey.
Despite being relatively
new locally, the Wyoming
Valley has produced players
who have starred at the colle-
giate level. The Tunkhannock
boys’ squad has an alumnus
walk-on at Pittsburgh and a
player at Thiel College, and
the Wyoming Seminary pro-
gram has had former girls and
boys players at the Division I
level.
Appolonia said that in-
terested players should watch
lacrosse played to see how
competitive it is.
“People need to see the
sport and learn the game to
see how exciting it is,” he
said. “Go to a game and see. I
played baseball, football and
hockey, and there’s no other
feeling like holding a lacrosse
stick.”

PHILADELPHIA — Roy
Halladay pitched a seven-hitter
to help Philadelphia set a club
record with its 18th victory in
April as the Phillies beat the
New York Mets 2-1 on Sat-
urday.
Halladay (4-1) allowed one
run and walked one while
striking out eight to lead the
Phillies to their third straight
victory. Philadelphia went 17-5
in April 1993.
The NL Cy Young award
winner cruised in the begin-
ning of the game— his first 18
pitches were all strikes before
missing high with a fastball to
Jose Reyes.
It was his seventh straight
win over the Mets dating back
to the 2006 season.
Mets starter Jonathon Niese
(2-3) took the loss after Pla-
cido Polanco’s sacrifice fly in
the seventh broke a 1-1 tie.
Niese escaped jams in the
fifth and sixth before John
Mayberry Jr. tied it in the sev-
enth with his first homer of the
year. Wilson Valdez then sin-
gled to right field and Dane
Sardinha drew a walk.
Halladay struck out after his
bunt attempt was called foul by
the home plate umpire. Shane
Victorino singled to right to
load the bases and chase Niese.
Polanco followed with a
sacrifice fly to right to break
the tie.
Cardinals 3, Braves 2
ATLANTA — Gerald Laird’s
ninth-inning triple capped a
late rally to give the Cardinals
a win over the Braves.
Backed by rookie Brandon
Beachy’s seven scoreless in-
nings to start the game, the
Braves led 2-0 before St. Louis
began its comeback. David
Freese tied the game with a
two-run single in the eighth
before Laird’s go-ahead triple
drove in Matt Holliday.
Closer Craig Kimbrel (0-1),
who had a blown save in the
Braves’ 5-3 loss to the Cardi-
nals in 11 innings on Friday
night, couldn’t hold a 2-2 tie in
the ninth.
Holliday led off with a single
to right, advanced to second on
catcher Brian McCann’s passed
ball, and scored on Laird’s
one-out triple to left.
Miguel Batista (2-1) earned
the win.
Giants 2, Nationals 1
WASHINGTON — Taken
out of the starting lineup,
slumping Aubrey Huff drew a
bases-loaded walk as a pinch
hitter to force home the go-
ahead run, and the Giants
overcame Jonathan Sanchez’s
wild start and Brian Wilson’s
wild finish to edge the punch-
less Nationals.
Sanchez walked or hit seven
of Washington’s first 10 batters
but allowed just two hits and
one unearned run in his five
innings. Guillermo Mota (2-0)
pitched a perfect sixth for the
win, and four other relievers
followed with hitless work.
Astros 2, Brewers 1
HOUSTON — Jason Bour-
geois singled home the win-
ning run with two outs in the
ninth inning and Houston
Astros beat the Milwaukee
Brewers.
Kameron Loe (2-2) walked
pinch-hitter Brett Wallace and
Michael Bourn with two outs.
Bourgeois followed with his
third hit, and pinch-runner Bill
Hall scored.
Prince Fielder’s sixth homer
of the season was a tying, solo
shot with one out in the ninth
off Houston closer Brandon
Lyon (3-1). Casey McGehee
singled after that, but Lyon
retired the next two batters to
get out of the inning.

NEW YORK — Eric Chavez
drove in a run and broke up a
potential double play that
helped lead to three more,
making the most of a spot start
and sending the New York
Yankees to a 5-4 victory over
the Toronto Blue Jays on Sat-
urday.
Derek Jeter hit a sacrifice fly,
and Curtis Granderson, Russell
Martin and Brett Gardner also
drove in runs for the Yankees,
who played small ball to per-
fection against Toronto.
A.J. Burnett (4-1) scrapped
his way through six innings for
New York, despite giving up
nine hits and having to wiggle
his way out of a jam in just
about every one of them.
Mariano Rivera pitched the
ninth for his ninth save.
Rays 2, Angels 1, 10 innings
Matt Joyce scored from third
on a wild pitch with two outs
in the 10th inning and the
Tampa Bay Rays beat the Los
Angeles Angels.
Joyce opened the 10th with a
double off Fernando Rodney
(0-1). After Ben Zobrist lined
out and Casey Kotchman
moved Joyce to third with a
grounder, Rodney threw a 1-2
pitch into the dirt that eluded
catcher Hank Conger.
Mariners 2, Red Sox 0
BOSTON — Doug Fister
worked out of trouble three
times in 5 2-3 scoreless innings
and the Seattle’s bullpen con-
tinued its solid stretch, lifting
the Mariners to a win over the
Boston Red Sox.
It was the Mariners’ fifth
straight win.
Boston lost for the fourth
time in five games after win-
ning eight of nine.
Rangers 11, Athletics 2
OAKLAND, Calif. — Colby
Lewis pitched eight strong
innings, Texas hit three home
runs, including back-to-back
shots by Nelson Cruz and Mike
Napoli in the fourth, and the
Rangers beat the Athletics.
Michael Young hit his first
homer of the season as the
Rangers tagged A’s starter
Brett Anderson (2-2) for seven
runs in five innings while snap-
ping a two-game losing streak.
Orioles 6, White Sox 2
CHICAGO — Robert Andino
homered and reliever Mike
Gonzalez doused a no-out
bases-loaded situation as the
Baltimore Orioles sent the
reeling Chicago White Sox to
their 14th loss in 17 games with
a victory.
Leading 2-1, the Orioles
tacked on four runs in the
eighth, an inning featuring a
passed ball and error on Chica-
go catcher A.J. Pierzynski and
a two-run single by Vladimir
Guerrero.
Indians 3, Tigers 2, 13 innings
CLEVELAND — Orlando
Cabrera lined an RBI single in
the 13th inning that gave the
Cleveland Indians their 12th
straight home win.
Royals 11, Twins 2
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Alex
Gordon hit a three-run homer
in an eight-run eighth inning
and rookie right-hander Nate
Adcock picked up his first big
league victory as the Kansas
City Royals beat the Minnesota
Twins.

MOSCOW — Miki Ando was
skating for a world title. In her
heart, she was skating for those
in her wounded homeland.
She defeated Olympic cham-
pion Kim Yu-na of South Korea,
prevailing in a duel of exception-
al elegance at a world champion-
ships originally scheduled for Ja-
pan before it was devastated by
an earthquake and tsunami in
March.
“I was skating for Japan and I
never cared about the result,”
said Ando, who also won at the
2007 worlds. “I’mreally happy to
have a goldmedal,” Ando said. “I
worked hard and I’ve become a
little bit of a stronger skater than
a year ago.”
Carolina Kostner of Italy took
the bronze. For the U.S., Alissa
Czisny finishedfifthandRachael
Flatt was 12th.
In ice dance, Americans Meryl
Davis andCharlie White wonthe
first world gold medal for their
country in the discipline, out-
pointing 2010 champions Tessa
Virtue andScott Moir of Canada.
The American sister-brother
teamof Maia and Alex Shibutani
won bronze.
The free programs of Ando
and Kim contained languid
moves interspersed with mo-
ments of power and steely con-
trol. They were within less than
half a point of each other going
into the free skate.
Ando, skating to Grieg’s “Pi-
ano Concerto in AMinor,” in the
final group of six, opened with a
triple lutz-double toe loop. She
didn’t falter until the middle of
the program, when she stepped
out of a double axel and reduced
the planned combination triple
toe to a double.
But she regained her poise,
had three more solid triples and
a double axel-double loop-dou-
ble loop cascade so surprising
that it drew gasps from the
crowd.
Kimmade her seasondebut af-
ter firing coach Brian Orser and
moving her training base from
Toronto to Los Angeles in the
past year. She started even more
boldly with a triple lutz-triple
toe. Her program—“Homage to
Korea” — set to a haunting col-
lection of traditional Korean mu-
sic and choreographed by Cana-
dian David Wilson, was a crowd-
pleaser at Megasport Arena.
But she quickly ran into trou-
ble, singling two of her next
three jumps. She also featured a
cascade starting with a double
axel, but one of the jumps was a
toe loop instead of a loop, giving
the element slightly less value.
“I’m just so glad that the com-
petition is over,” said Kim, who
cried on the podium. “After the
Olympics, I was thinking: ’Am I
going to come back to competi-
tion or not?’ ... Mentally I
couldn’t stop thinking: ’Why do I
have to do this?’ I think that was
the hardest thing. But then I felt
ready to go and I thought: ’I can
do this.”’
Kostner improved from sixth
place to take the bronze, with a
charming program to the drea-
my strains of Debussy’s “After-
noon of a Faun,” marred only by
popping one triple.
“Last year it was a hard time
for me, so it was a big emotion
just to finally again just enjoy it,”
she said. “To be able to get a
medal makes it more special.”
The winning American ice
dancers thanked their coaches,
Igor Shpilband and Marina
Zoueva.
“To say that we owe every-
thing to our coaching is an un-
derstatement,” Davis said of the
pair, who also coach the silver
and bronze medalists.
Davis and White were slightly
behind going into the free dance,
but outpointedthe Canadians on
technical marks and program
components in their clean and
lively tango program.
“It’s been a long15 years we’ve
been together, and just building
toward this moment,” White
said.
Virtue and Moir were more
aesthetically adventurous in a
program that smoothly moved
from Latin music to smoky jazz
to a drumfusillade and included
a dramatic upside-down lift.
“We set out to challenge our-
selves and to push the bounda-
ries of ice dancing,” Virtue said.
“The programis unlike anything
we’ve done before andI think un-
like anythingthe ice dance world
has seen. We’re proud of what
we’ve accomplished.”
All the 2010 champions en-
tered this year, and none won
god. Mao Asada of Japan fin-
ished sixth after an error-filled
short program. Daisuke Taka-
hashi finished sixth in the men’s,
overwhelmed in a field won by
Canada’s Patrick Chan, who set
three world records. Aliona Sav-
chenkoandRobinSzolkowywon
the pairs, with 2010 champions
Pang Qing and Tong Jian of Chi-
na settling for bronze.

at the ISU figure skating world championships in Russia.
AVONDALE, La. — Bubba
Watson made a 4-foot birdie
putt on the 18th hole for a 2-
under 70 and a share of the
third-round lead with Webb
Simpson on Saturday in the
Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
Simpson had five straight
birdies in a 67 to match Watson,
who has had at least a share of
the lead after all three rounds,
at 12-under 204 at TPC Louisia-
na.
John Rollins (69) was third at
11 under, and 2002 winner K.J.
Choi (67) was 10 under along
with Steve Stricker (68), George
McNeill (65), Charles Howell III
(66), Tommy Gainey (68) and
Matt Jones (69).
Luke Donald, who missed an
opportunity to jump from No. 3
to No. 1 in the world a week ago
when he lost playoff to Brandt
Snedeker at Hilton Head, was 7
under after a 70.
Teen shares LPGA lead
MOBILE, Ala. — Sixteen-
year-old Alexis Thompson shot
a 5-under 67 to share the lead
with Song-Hee Kim heading
into the final round of the Avnet
LPGA Classic.
The Florida teen jumped
ahead of second-round leader
Sandra Gal on Saturday with a
birdie on No. 16, but that’s also
how Kim would catch her.
Both are at 7-under 209 on
The Crossings course at the
Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail’s
Magnolia Grove complex. The
South Korean Kim, who is seek-
ing her first LPGA Tour win,
shot a 70 on a breezy day.
Thompson received a spon-
sor’s exemption for her first
LPGA event of the year.
Smoltz fails to make cut
VALDOSTA, Ga. — Former
Braves pitcher John Smoltz
struggled in his PGA Nation-
wide Tour debut, shooting a
15-over 87 at the South Georgia
Classic on Saturday to miss the
cut by 27 strokes.
Smoltz, 43, opened with an 84
after two long weather delays
forced him to play 18 holes over
two days. He was even worse in
the second round at Kinderlou
Forest Golf Club, with his 27-
over 171 nine strokes worse that
any of the other 147 golfers who
completed both rounds.
Smoltz spent nearly his entire
career with Atlanta, becoming
the only pitcher in MLB history
to post 200 wins and 150 saves.
Spaniard, Aussie in front
SEOUL, South Korea — Mi-
guel Angel Jimenez and Brett
Rumford shared the lead at 10
under when third-round play in
the Ballantine’s Championship
was suspended Saturday be-
cause of heavy rain and light-
ning.
Jimenez, the 47-year-old Span-
ish star who has 18 European
Tour victories, and Rumford,
from Australia, completed nine
holes. Jimenez was 3 under for
the day, and Rumford was even
par on the Blackstone course.
Wales’ Rhys Davies was a
stroke back at 8 under with
seven holes left. American star
Dustin Johnson was 7 under
with eight holes to play.

Wilkes women claim fifth straight conference tennis title
The Times Leader staff
NANTICOKE– Despite taking
it easy on Saturday morning,
Bornfase Nyandusi Omurwa –
the native Kenyan who now lives
in Kingston – ran off with a deci-
sive victory.
Omurwa won the Cancer
Awareness 5K Run in 17 minutes
and 39 seconds on the grounds of
the Luzerne County Community
College.
“I wanted to just run at my nor-
mal pace, said Omurwa, 27. “I
wanted to save myself, because
(today) I’m running in the Broad
Street 10 Miler in Philadelphia.”
Omurwa trailed early in the
race. But it was only a matter of
time before he would track down
the leaders, evenif he was just ba-
sically running the 5K for train-
ing purposes. And Omurwa did
just that just after the first mile
and scored a 30-second victory
over Joe Cardillo, 51, of Dun-
more, who finished in 18:09.
“It was an easy win, but it
wasn’t an easy race,” said Omur-
wa, referring to the hilly course.
“The first half of the race is basi-
cally downhill. But on the way
back, it’s an upward climb for the
most part. It’s a challenge.”
Omurwa, who never ran com-
petitively in Kenya, said that he
loves running in area races.
“I enjoy running – not so much
to win, but because I feel that it’s
a great way to give back to the
community,” he said. “Many of
the local races give their pro-
ceeds to local organizations that
support good causes.”
The LCCC race is sponsored
by the school’s athletic depart-
ment. And according to Ed Gur-
tis, associate professor of the de-
partment, the money from the
race stays local.
“We give to a variety of local or-
ganizations, like Candy’s Place (a
cancer wellness center that does
a lot of goodwork withcancer pa-
tients) for example,” said Gurtis.
“Sometimes we even give money
toa needyindividual withcancer-
related problems.”
Top female finisher Cassandra
Zegarski placed eighth overall, in
22 minutes. Zegarski, 33, of Mos-
cow, who only started running a
year age, outdistanced second-
place finisher, Natalie Sulkowski,
14, of Mountain Top, by 44 sec-
onds.
“I trailed (Sulkowski) by about
100 yards for about the first quar-
ter of a mile,” said Zegarski.
“That’s when we hit the first hill.
(Sulkowski) slowed up on the
hill. Andthat’s whenI caught her.
We ran together up that hill and I
eventually took the lead. When
we reached the big hill (about
two miles into the race), I began
putting some distance between
(Sulkowski) and myself.”
Zegarski said that she trains all
the time on hills in her home-
town of Moscow.
Note: Omurwa was recently
asked by Allied Services to be
part of its team at the New York
City Marathonset for Nov. 6. “I’m
really happy about that,” said
Omurwa.

Kenyan tunes up for 10-miler
By ROBERT MINER
For The Times Leader
Gwinnett scored its first run in
the second, but center fielder
Greg Golson saved the Yankees
from a potential bigger hole
when he gunned down a tagging
DioryHernandezat thirdbasefor
the third out to end the inning. It
was the center fielder’s fourth as-
sist.
But the solid defense went
both ways.
After back-to-back singles to
lead off the fourth by Laird and
JordanParraz, RamiroPenalined
into a tough-luck double-play to
Gwinnett second baseman Her-
nandez, and P.J. Pilittere then
popped out to end the inning.
Laird, MonteroandKevinRus-
so were the only Yankees with
multiple hits in the game.
NOTES: Jorge Vazquez’ 10-
game hitting streak ended with
an 0-for-4, four strikeout night. ...
Starter David Phelps’ first error
of the year led to the first run of
the game, when his throwto first
skipped into right field. ...Scran-
ton/Wilkes-Barre will continue
its series with the Gwinnett
Braves today at 2:05 p.m. with
RHP Adam Warren (1-0, 3.75
ERA) facing Gwinnett’s RHP
Todd Redmond (0-3, 4.03 ERA).

lotte.
The Penguins evened up the
series at one game apiece as they
head to Charlotte for the next
three contests.
Sterling broke the scoreless
tie after Corey Potter’s shot from
the point hit a Charlotte defense-
man in front and ricocheted out
to the left faceoff circle. Sterling
was there to corral the puck and
rip a wrist shot that beat Check-
ers goaltender Mike Murphy to
give the Penguins a1-0 lead. The
goal, which came at 15:17 of the
second period, was Sterling’s
second in two games after he
was heldscoreless inthe Norfolk
series.
“Both teams were making a
hard push to get one,” said head
coach John Hynes. “Brett’s a guy
we rely on for that and he did a
good job to finish.”
Until then, both teams played
an evenly matched contest, ex-
changing one scoring chance af-
ter another, and all they had to
show for it were a couple shots
off posts and several great saves
from Murphy and Thiessen.
Things got heated midway
through the first period when a
scrum in front of the Charlotte
net almost escalatedinto several
fights and resulted in seven
roughing minors.
“That’s how we want to play.
That’s really who we are,” said
Hynes.
Collins put thePenguins upby
two in the third period when his
shot fromthe faceoff circle went
through Ryan Craig’s legs and
under Murphy, who never saw
the puck.
“I’m happy the puck missed
me,” Craig said. “We were just
trying to get traffic onhim(Mur-
phy). He’s a good goalie and we
have to try to get to the net and
make it hard for him to see
pucks.”
The Checkers had plenty of
opportunities to get on the
board, including seven power
plays on the night. But the Pen-
guins’ penalty kill, led by Craig,
kept them off the board.
It was a drastic turnaround for
the Penguins’ penalty kill, which
allowed two Charlotte power-
play goals in Game 1.Charlotte
pressed during the last five min-
utes, but Thiessen held his
ground, making several key
saves including a stop on Jon
Matsumoto from the side of the
net to preserve the shutout.
And it wasn’t an easy shutout
to get as Thiessen had to face 34
shots and seven power plays on
the night.
“I was able to get into it right
away,” he said. “In Game1, I had
four shots in the first period. To-
night theyhadsome power plays
early and I was into it right
away.”
Notes: The Penguins made
several lineup changes for Game
2. Forwards Jesse Boulerice,
Nick Petersen and Ben Street
were scratched for the first time
in the postseason as head coach
John Hynes elected to dress sev-
en defensemen. Bryan Lerg re-
turned to the lineup and forward
Paul Thompson and defense-
man Carl Sneep suited up for
their first AHL playoff games …
The Penguins are 2-3 at home
during the postseason. They are
also 5-0 when scoring the first
goal.

RICHMOND, Va. — Kyle
Busch denied teammate Denny
Hamlin a weekend sweep at his
home track Saturday night by
stretching his final tank of gas
107 laps to win at Richmond
International Raceway.
Busch won the spring race at
Richmond for the third consec-
utive year, needing only to
make it to the checkered flag
before his gas tank ran dry.
Lurking behind him was Ham-
lin, ready to pounce for a victo-
ry that might have snapped his
early season slump.
Hamlin had already won his
charity race, held Thursday
night at RIR, and followed it
with Friday night’s win in the
Nationwide Series race. But
Busch’s car was just a tick bet-
ter in the Sprint Cup Series
race, and Busch led the Joe
Gibbs Racing sweep.
“It’s tough when you share
notebooks,” Hamlin said. “Ev-
ery trick in the book, you know
they’ve got it, too.”
Kasey Kahne, fresh off sur-
gery to repair a torn ligament in
his knee, finished a season-best
third to give Toyota the top
three spots.
The leaders seemed to have
an easy go of it, with most of
the fireworks coming far behind
them in the field.
Ryan Newman and Juan
Pablo Montoya were involved in
two different on-track incidents,
and Newman at one point
vowed his payback would come
after the race. There was no
confrontation, though. Montoya
hopped on a waiting golf cart
and headed out of the track,
while Newman walked to the
NASCAR hauler to complain
about Montoya’s driving.
Kurt Busch completely lost
his composure on his team
radio several times during the
race. Frustrated by an ill-hand-
ling car, he was pushed over the
edge when he ran into Newman
seconds after contact between
Newman and Montoya brought
out the caution.
And Martin Truex Jr., in
position for a top-five finish,
threatened over his team radio
to fire his entire crew when he
was penalized twice on his final
pit stop.
TWEETER: Clint Bowyer
hosted a one-hour Twitter par-
ty, and isn’t sure why.
“What a joke!” Bowyer said of
the session in which he was
supposed to answer followers’
questions. “Oh, my. I was in-
volved in a Twitter party. Did I
host the Twitter party? I attend-
ed a Twitter party. I don’t know
why we just didn’t get on the
phone and talk to each other.”
The session was apparently
arranged by Bowyer’s PR repre-
sentative.
“I’m still upset that he made
me even participate in such a
goofy thing,” Bowyer said.
NO ROYAL WEDDING: Jeff
Gordon thought the royal wed-
ding was “cool,” but isn’t plan-
ning to throw antyhing for his
daughter like the huge million
affair for Prince William and
Kate Middleton.
“Oh no, definitely not,” he
said. “No prince and princess
wedding happening there. Why
do you have to get me all
stressed out about that now?
I’m already worried about it.”

PHILADELPHIA — David
Krejci and Brad Marchand each
scored two goals, and the Bos-
tonBruins tookout their frustra-
tion from one of the great col-
lapses in postseason history
with a 7-3 win over the Philadel-
phiaFlyers onSaturdayinGame
1 of the Eastern Conference
semifinals.
The Bruins chased goalie
Brian Boucher by taking a 5-1
lead in the second period.
Newround, same problemfor
the Flyers.
Philadelphia used two goalies
in three of its seven first-round
games against Buffalo.
For the second straight sea-
son, theBruins leadtheFlyers in
the second round. The Bruins
led3-0ayearago, thentheFlyers
became the third NHL team to
rally with four straight victories
to win a best-of-seven series.
Nathan Horton, Mark Recchi
and Gregory Campbell also
scored for Boston.
Game2isMondayinPhiladel-
phia.
Since beating Montreal to ad-
vance to the second round, the
Bruins had insisted they
wouldn’t be haunted by last
year’s epic collapse.
Perhaps it is fitting that Krejci
was the Game 1star.
Krejci watched Boston give
away the series from the side-
lines after hewas knockedout of
Game 3 a year ago with a dislo-
catedright wrist. Heneededsur-
gery and missed the rest of the
series.
He wasted no time in aiding
Boston’s quest to erase those
bad memories, scoring a back-
hander off arebound1:52in. The
goal foreshadowed what was to
come — Boston scored four of
its five goals against Boucher on
rebounds.
The Flyers did little to help
Boucher, whowontwogames in
relief vs. the Sabres, with lack-
lusterplayinfront of thenet. But
Boucher failed to stop the often
soft second chances.
He was yanked for rookie Ser-
gei Bobrovsky late inthe second
period.
Tim Thomas, who saved 93
percent of his shots in the first
round, was stout in net for the
Bruins.
Danny Briere scored his sev-
enth of the playoffs, and James
van Riesmsdyk and Mike Ri-
chards added goals for the
Flyers.
Briere tied it at 1-all, but Hor-
ton put the Bruins ahead for
good with 36 seconds left in the
first period. Boucher made the
initial save on a shot to the gut,
but Hortonpouncedandpound-
ed the puck off Boucher’s arm
for a 2-1lead.
Recchi didn’t let the Flyers
start yet another comebackwith
a quick goal 2:33 into the sec-
ond. It was a soft rebounder that
Boucher swiped at as it trickled
behind him to the back of the
net.
Krejci scored from the point
andMarchandscoredthe fourth
reboundgoal with2:46left inthe
second for a 5-1 lead. That was
all for Boucher.
Boucher, the Flyers’ Game 7
winner, allowed five goals on 23
shots. Flyers coach Peter Lavio-
lette again is forced to confront
the weak link in the lineup. Bo-
brovskywon28games andstart-
ed Games 1 and 2 against Buffa-
lo. He was replaced by Boucher
in Game 2 and never played
again.
Richards, the Flyers captain,
busted out of a scoring slump
with his first goal of the postsea-
son late in the third. His power-
play goal made it 5-3.
Marchand quickly followed
with his second goal for a 6-3
lead. Campbell completed the
rout with 2:21left.

MIAMI — LeBron James
planned to spend a large part of
Saturday studying film, looking
for any edge that the Miami Heat
may use against the Boston Cel-
tics.
Film from this season, that is.
No need to watch the Celtics
inflicting past playoff wounds on
him. Those remain fresh — and
time has not yet healed them.
The inability to beat Boston is
one of the biggest reasons why
James is now wearing a Miami
Heat uniform. He’ll get a third at-
tempt to top the Celtics in a post-
season series starting today
whenthe teams collide inGame1
of what may easily become an ep-
ic Eastern Conference semifinal.
“It is personal,” James said Sat-
urday as the Heat finished prac-
tice. “It is. Absolutely right. You
don’t want to keeping getting
beat by the same team, the same
team keep sending you home to
plana vacation. So it is personal.”
The Celtics expected him to
say nothing less.
“It would be personal for me,”
Boston forward Paul Pierce said.
“I’msure he’s going to take it per-
sonal andyou’ve got to expect his
best.”
Unwittingly or not, the Celtics
played a huge role in setting up
an offseason unlike any other in
NBA history. Boston gave James
a big push toward Miami for a
strength-in-numbers approach
with the Heat that wasn’t possi-
ble during the two-time MVP’s
stint with the Cavaliers.
Collectively, James, Dwyane
Wade and Chris Bosh figure to
rate a better chance, and that the-
ory is about to get put to the real
test. They left a combined $51
million on the bargaining table
last summer, and victory in this
best-of-seven series may make
that money seem exceptionally
well-spent.
“I think you’ve got two really
good teams, two teams with a lot
of will, two teams with a lot of
pride,” Celtics general manager
Danny Ainge said. “And I think
it’s going to be a great series.”
The Celtics have17NBAcham-
pionship banners, and there’s at
least that many story lines for
this matchup.
Boston’s Shaquille O’Neal
wants to come back from injury
for this series, as does Udonis
Haslem for Miami. The Heat
know they need to find ways of
getting Wade going against the
Celtics, which didn’t happen in
the regular season. Boston wants
to exploit what it figures to be a
significant edge at point guard
withRajonRondoover the duoof
Mike Bibby and Mario Chalmers.
And there’s that small matter
of the teams just plain not liking
one another.
“Playoffs is a newseason,” Bos-
ton forward Kevin Garnett said.
“New situations, new scenarios.
So everything we’ve done up to
this point is just history.”
In Miami’s case, the history is
not good.
Not only did Boston oust both
Wade (in the first round) and
James (in the second round)
from last year’s playoffs, but the
Celtics have won 18 of their last
21 meetings overall against Mia-
mi — even after the Heat rolled
to a 100-77 win at home on April
10, the lone time they knockedoff
the defending East kings in four
matchups this season.

FAIRFAX, Va. —After losing a
Final Four coach to the Atlantic
Coast Conference, George Ma-
son got one in return.
The Patriots on Saturday hired
former Georgia Tech coach Paul
Hewitt to re-
place JimLarra-
naga, who left
this month for
the University
of Miami.
“Both are ve-
ry good coach-
es,” George Ma-
son athletic di-
rector Tom O’Connor said. “We
were glad to have Jim, and we’re
proud to have Paul.”
Hewitt was fired by Georgia
Tech last month. He took the Yel-
low Jackets to the Final Four in
2004, but that was the only sea-
son he had a winning record in
ACC play. He went 190-162 over
11years at the school and was 72-
104 in the conference.
Georgia Tech went 13-18 this
season and failed to sell out any
games at its 9,100-seat arena.
Money was a major reason the
Patriots lost Larranaga, whotook
George Mason to the Final Four
in 2006 and is the winningest
coach in school history. Hewitt,
47, is receiving a $7.2 million
buyout over five years fromGeor-
gia Tech, which would seem to
make him more affordable for a
Colonial Athletic Association
school like GMU.
“That was never a considera-
tionwe had,” O’Connor said. “We
felt like he was right person to
have. He fit all the criteria we
were looking for.”
Hewitt arrived at Georgia Tech
in 2000 after posting a 66-27 re-
cord in three seasons at Siena.
George Mason plans to intro-
duce Hewitt at a news conference
on Monday.
“Paul is an excellent teacher of
basketball,” O’Connor said. “He’s
a great communicator. He’s done
wonderful things in the commu-
nity. We felt he was the total pack-
age.”

KOSICE, Slovakia — Chris
Kreider started the scoring and
the United States cruised to a 5-1
victory over Austria inits opening
game at the world ice hockey
championship Saturday.
Kreider sped past Austrian cap-
tain Gerhard Unterluggauer to
convert the Americans’ first goal
of the tournament 14:42 into the
game. BlakeWheeler addedagoal
2:33 later, scoring with an angled
shot after Derek Stepan’s quick
pass caught Austria’s goalie flat-
footed.
“It was the way we wanted to
start,” said Stepan, who had two
assists.
Austria replied with Marco Pe-
wal’s shot over goalie Al Mon-
toya’s shoulder, but Yan Stastny
restored the two-goal advantage
later in the second period. Kevin
Shattenkirk and Craig Smith each
scored in the third for the young
American team, which outshot
Austria 32-13.
Intheother games, MartinHav-
lat scored a goal and added an as-
sist to help defending champion
Czech Republic rally for a 3-2 win
over Latvia at their opening
match at the worlds. Also in Kos-
ice, Norway upset Sweden 5-4 in
the penalty shootout.
In Bratislava, Finland beat Den-
mark 5-1 to avenge an embarrass-
ing 4-1 loss to the Danes in the
group stage of last year’s worlds.

NEW YORK — One fourth-
round draft pick won’t be ready
to run until August. Another
wasn’t ready to talk to his new
team because he was in the mid-
dle of his graduation ceremony.
Those were the least of the
complications Saturday at the
NFL draft, which completed its
three-day run at Radio City Mu-
sic Hall against a backdrop of a
restored lockout. Right now, no
one is sure when clubs will be
ready to let any players walk
back in to team headquarters.
“With the lockout, there’s so
much uncertainty,” said tight
end Kyle Rudolph, a second-
round pick of the Minnesota Vik-
ings. “I’mjust focused on getting
myself in the best shape as pos-
sible and being ready whenever
we are allowed to” show up.
A total of 254 players were se-
lectedover sevenrounds. But on-
ly a fewlucky first-rounders were
able to pick up playbooks Friday
during a brief time when the
lockout was lifted.
The Carolina Panthers opened
the fourth round by selecting
West Virginia cornerback Bran-
don Hogan. The 5-foot-10, 192-
pounder not only has off-field is-
sues, but he’s recovering from
ligament surgeryonhis left knee.
Hogan won’t be able to begin
running full speed until August.
“My knee is ahead of sched-
ule,” he insisted. “It’s getting
stronger and getting used to do-
ing things.”
ThePanthers, whochosequar-
terback Cam Newton with the
No. 1 overall pick to open the
draft Thursday night and added
a pair of defensive tackles Friday,
are hoping Hogan recovers and
stays out of trouble to bolster a
secondary in need of depth.
The Seattle Seahawks went
next and picked Mississippi
State linebacker K.J. Wright.
General manager John Schneid-
er gave Wright a call in Starkville
and was puzzled why the player
had so little to say. Well, it turns
out Wright was just about to re-
ceive his diploma at his gradua-
tion ceremony.
“As soon as I got off the phone,
two minutes later I had to go up
there and walk across the stage,”
Wright said.
Day 3 of the draft was the first
full day that players were locked
out again after a brief respite Fri-
day. That night, however, an ap-
peals court decision allowed the
league to reinstate the lockout
that had been lifted earlier in the
week.
But the draft carried on be-
cause it is protected under the
old collective bargaining agree-
ment, which expired March 11.
Dan Lauria, who stars as
Green Bay coach Vince Lombar-
di in the Broadway show “Lom-
bardi,” ended the sixth round by
making the Packers’ pick — Ari-
zona linebacker Ricky Elmore.
The draft concluded with the
Houston Texans picking Rice li-
nebacker Cheta Ozougwu. As
the final pick, he will be honored
as “Mr. Irrelevant,” a weeklong
celebration in Newport Beach,
Calif., that began in 1976.
The Arizona Cardinals, trying
to improve their pass rush, se-
lected Texas linebacker Sam
Acho in the fourth round. The
6-1, 257-pounder in December
won the Campbell Trophy and a
$25,000 scholarship given by the
National Football Foundation
and College Hall of Fame as the
nation’s top scholar athlete.
Acho’s parents emigratedfrom
Nigeria, and each summer he re-
turns to the country with his fa-
ther and brother on a medical
mission.
Another Matthews joined the
NFL when Oregon linebacker
Casey Matthews was picked by
the Philadelphia Eagles with the
19th pick in the fourth round.
He’s the brother of Packers All-
Pro linebacker Clay Matthews.
The Eagles are well aware of
Clay Matthews — they had a
hardtime handling himlast year.
“Clay had some success
against them,” Casey Matthews
said. “At the conclusion of my
visit whenI was out there, Coach
(Andy) Reid said, ’Tell your
brother we’re going to get him
next year with you on the team.’
AndI toldClay that. I don’t think
they have the Packers on the
schedule, but hopefully we get
them in the playoffs.”
Minutes later, the Eagles
made Nebraska All-American
Alex Henery the first kicker tak-
en with the 23rd pick of the
fourth round. Henery hit 18-of-19
field goal attempts (10-of-11from
40 yards or longer) and all 54 ex-
tra points last season. He also
punts.
Eagles longtime kicker David
Akers is a free agent, but the
team has placed a transition tag
on him and would have a chance
to retain him.
The Cleveland Browns, with a
pick from Atlanta, chose Stan-
ford fullback Owen Marecic, a
two-way player who also played
linebacker.

Amid labor strife, draft concludes
Only a few 1st-rounders able
to get playbooks during brief
time when lockout was lifted.

ISSA Certified Personal Trainer Anything Worth Having is Worth Working For....
Years ago, I joined a local gym and worked out for 1-1 ½ hours, 5-6 days a week.
When the year was over, I felt more fexible and my cardio improved but I had only
lost One WHOLE POUND.
Just recently I joined CLOUD9 PERSONAL TRAINING. I joined for the same
reasons; fexibility, cardio and weight loss. It has been about 90 days and I improved
my fexibility, cardio, confdence and strength. I am still working out as much as I
used to, but now I’ve lost 20lbs with their help.
Anything worth having is worth working for.....Get serious.
Stop in and see what Cloud9 has to offer.

PITTSBURGH — The Pitts-
burgh Steelers watched teams
zoom up past them in the draft.
They saw others fall back below
themin a given round. And team
brass even fielded calls fromoth-
er clubs eager to deal.
But none of that mattered. All
that did, was that Pittsburgh re-
lied on few constants, and held
firm.
Throughout this unique draft
— held during the on-again, off-
again lockout — dozens of
trades were consummated with
teams moving all over the place.
Some even did so repeatedly, in
an effort to get their targeted
guy or to stockpile extra picks.
The Steelers didn’t join in.
They were secure in the fact
they could sit tight and get the
players they wanted.
In the end, they feel they did
just that.
“It’s mucheasier to just sit and
let themcome to us,” said Kevin
Colbert, the team’s director of
football operations, “because
usually that’s when you get the
best results.”
For the first time since 2005,
the Steelers did not make a
draft-day trade. Adding to their
predictability of picking near
the very bottom of every round,
was the fact the reigning AFC
champions hadn’t made any pre-
draft trades of picks or for picks.
So, come the 31st pick of ev-
ery round (until the seventh and
final round, when they chose
29th), Pittsburgh was there and
ready, confident in the player
they were going to choose.
“This draft really broke well
for getting good players that we
feel fit and have a good chance
to contribute,” Colbert said.
“We got them in spots where we
thought we may get them. But,
we didn’t reach for anything to
fill a hole.”
Under Colbert, the Steelers
haven’t been shy about moving
up in virtually any round when
after a specific player. The team
also has traded down at times
over the years.
But Pittsburgh made its final
four picks on Saturday with lit-
tle fanfare. They added another
cornerback and an offensive li-
neman, and just stayed out of
the mix.
The Steelers also took an out-
side linebacker, Chris Carter of
Fresno State, and a running
back in Texas Tech’s Baron
Batch.
Pittsburgh’s first two picks
Saturday — cornerback Cortez
Allen of The Citadel and Carter
— were seen as developmental,
long-term prospects who likely
won’t make an immediate im-
pact, but could have high upside
down the road.
PHILADELPHIA—The Phila-
delphia Eagles can’t have Clay
Matthews, so they drafted his
brother.
Casey Matthews, a linebacker
from Oregon, was Philadelphia’s
first pick in the fourth round of
the NFLdraft Saturday. His older
brother tormented the Eagles as
a member of the Green Bay Pack-
ers last year.
“Clay had some success
against them,” Matthews said.
“At the conclusion of my visit
when I was out there, Coach (An-
dy) Reid said, ‘Tell your brother
we’re gonna get him next year
with you on the team.’ And I told
Clay that. I don’t think they have
the Packers on the schedule, but
hopefullywe get theminthe play-
offs.”
Clay Matthews was runner-up
to Troy Polamalu for The Associ-
ated Press 2010 NFL Defensive
Player of the Year award. In
Green Bay’s season-opening vic-
tory at Philadelphia, he knocked
quarterback Kevin Kolb out of
thegamewitha concussion. That
paved the way for Michael Vick’s
remarkable season. But Mat-
thews and the Packers ended the
Eagles’ run with another victory
in Philadelphia in a wild-card
playoff game.
“Being his younger brother is
great,” Casey Matthews said. “To
see his story, to see himgo froma
walk-on at USC to where he’s at
right now and see all the hard
work, dedication and mental
toughness that he had to put in,
obviously I’ve looked up to him
because of it. This offseason, I
was fortunate to work out with
himfor the first time and it made
me better as a player and a per-
son.”
The brothers come from a
strong football background.
Their father, Clay Matthews, Jr.,
played the third most games in
NFL history (278) over 19 sea-
sons as a linebacker for the Cleve-
land Browns and Atlanta Falcons
while earning four Pro Bowl se-
lections. Their uncle, Bruce Mat-
thews, was a Hall of Fame offen-
sive linemen.
“It was a blessing to be a part of
the family and all the football his-
tory that goes with it,” Casey
Matthews said. “Football wasn’t
forced on us. My parents wanted
us todowhatever made us happy.
As soonas we were oldenoughto
sign up for football, that’s what
we did.”
Casey Matthews, listed at 6-
foot-1 and 231 pounds, played in-
side linebacker at Oregon. Scouts
say athleticism is his biggest
strength, he’s intelligent and fun-
damentally sound.
The Eagles haven’t had a play-
maker at linebacker in years.
They’ve shuttled several differ-
ent starters at all threespots inre-
cent seasons, so Matthews
should compete for playing time
right away.
Minutes after drafting Mat-
thews, the Eagles selected Ne-
braska kicker Alex Henery with
the 120th pick. Henery made 68
of 75 field goals (90.6 percent) at
Nebraska, and he also punted.
His arrival couldsignal the end
of David Akers’ career in Phila-
delphia. Akers has been Philadel-
phia’s kicker since 1999, but he’s
not under contract. Akers, a five-
time ProBowl pick, includingthe
last two years, was designated a
transition tag.
The Eagles began the day by
trading down, sending to Tampa
Bay the 104th pick they received
fromWashington in the Donovan
McNabb trade last year for the
116th pick used to select Mat-
thews and a fourth in 2012.
They also had two picks in
each of the last three rounds. The
Eagles chose Pittsburgh running
back Dion Lewis and Iowa guard
Julian Vandervelde in the fifth
round.
Lewis had 1,061 yards rushing
on219carries and13touchdowns
last year. Lewis is undersized at
5-foot-8, 195, but scouts say he’s a
good inside runner and he’s also
shifty.
Lewis rushedfor 2,860 yards in
just two seasons at Pitt, eclipsing
former standout LeSean
McCoy’s school record for rush-
ing yards as a freshman and soph-
omore. McCoy is Philadelphia’s
starting running back.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.
— The New York Giants fin-
ished the NFL draft believing
they landed two of the top 15
players, improved their team
speed, found a return man and
acquired a bunch of guys to
cure a special teams unit that
probably cost them a playoff
berth last season.
All they need now is a sea-
son.
And that’s something that is
becoming more and more un-
certain with a labor impasse
that has seen the NFL switch
gears from a lockout to an off-
season training program back
to a lockout in the past 72
hours.
“It is strange,” general man-
ager Jerry Reese saidSaturday af-
ter the Giants (10-6) drafted the
last of eight players. “Everybody
is upstairs looking at each other
wondering what do we do now.
It’s usually kind of controlled
chaos up there after the draft try-
ing to sign free agents.”
With the lockout, there are no
free agents to sign. So, all that
was left to think about was the
players they had taken, and to re-
evaluate the board once the draft
was done.
“We’re really pleased with our
draft class,” Reese said.
There is good reason. New
York was thrilled to have Nebras-
ka cornerback Prince Amukama-
ra fall to them with the 19th pick
and even happier that North Car-
olina defensive tackle Marvin
Austin, who did not play last sea-
son after taking illegal gifts
from an agent, was still avail-
able in the second round with
pick No. 52.
“On paper, it looks pretty
good, but they have to get out
there and do it,” Reese said.
Amukamara and Austin
were more value picks than
needs. The Giants touched
need areas in the final five
rounds, taking Troy receiver-
returnman Jerrel Jernigan in
the third round, Indiana offen-
sive tackle James Brewer in
the fourth, Michigan State li-
nebacker Greg Jones, Iowa
safety Tyler Sash and South
Florida linebacker Jacquian
Williams in the sixth round
and finally, Maryland running
back Da’Rel Scott in the sev-
enth.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. —
The New York Jets went on the
offensive during the draft’s final
day.
After beefing up their defen-
sive line in the first few rounds,
theJetsfocusedontheotherside
of the ball Saturday by taking of-
fensiveplayerswiththeirfourre-
mainingpicks.
“It is funny when you look at
the draft, the first two years, we
only took one defensive player,”
coachRexRyansaid. “This year,
wehave, what, twoplayersonde-
fense? That’s a record for me be-
inga headcoach.”
New York drafted Louisville
running back Bilal Powell in the
fourth round, giving the Jets
some depth in the backfield. He
joins LaDainian Tomlinson,
ShonnGreene, JoeMcKnight —
last year’s fourth-round pick —
and fullback John Conner, the
team’sfifth-rounder ayear agoin
the Jets’ solidrushingattack.
“I just want to come inandcom-
pete,” Powell said moments after
being drafted. “I want to get under
those guys and learn the system
andcompete everyday.”
It’s uncertain when that will be,
though, given the NFL’s uncertain
labor situation with an on-again,
off-again and now on-again lock-
out.
TheJets tradedupeight spots in
the fifth round, swapping places
with the Philadelphia Eagles and
takingTCUwide receiver andspe-
cial-teamsaceJeremyKerley. They
also sent a sixth-roundselectionto
Philadelphia for the Eagles’ sev-

In the seventh round, the Jets
took Alabama quarterback Greg

here is something missing from
the Pennsylvania Game Commis-
sion’s shooting ranges.
And it’s a good thing.
Since the range use permit took
effect April 1, initial reports from the
northeast indicate that use by those
who aren’t hunters or serious shooters
is down.
As a result, the vandalism that has
long plagued the ranges has decreased.
It’s not a surprise considering the
two facets go hand-in-hand. Typically,
those who don’t hunt or aren’t serious
about target shooting are the ones
responsible for the bulk of the vandal-
ism.
That’s why the permit is a good idea.
Cut down on the former and you re-
duce the latter. It’s a simple concept,
really. If you don’t have a valid hunting
license or a permit, you can’t use a
PGC range.
But the biggest test is yet to come.
According to Tim Conway, the PGC’s
information and education supervisor
for the northeast region, range use by
non-hunters peaks during the summer
months. Non-residents vacationing in
the area – especially in the Poconos,
which has three PGC ranges – frequent
the ranges to fire off a few rounds. I’m
not implying that non-residents are
responsible for the majority of the
vandalism that has occurred, but it will
be interesting to see how many comply
with the permit requirement when
they do visit a range.
So far, Conway said, compliance has
been extremely good. When a wildlife
conservation officer finds someone
using a range without a permit or a
hunting license, they are asked to
leave. They are more than welcome to
come back after they obtain a $30
permit or a valid hunting license.
Perhaps the best aspect about the
permit idea is it really doesn’t dis-
courage people from using the ranges.
It’s good for one year (but if you buy it
now the permit is valid until June 30,
2012), and $30 isn’t that costly.
Best of all, the permit is easy to
obtain. Although it isn’t available from
hunting license-issuing agents, the
permits can be purchased at the PGC
headquarters in Dallas or online from
the PGC’s website
(www.pgc.state.pa.us).
Considering the popularity of the
shooting ranges – there are 29 in the
state – the agency was faced with a
difficult task when it implemented the
permit. Sure, something had to be
done about the vandalism and abuse of
the ranges, but it was important not to
have a permit process that dissuades
people from using the ranges for legiti-
mate reasons.
So far it hasn’t.
According to the PGC, 1,611 permits
were purchased by April 28. That’s a
strong figure considering the permits
were implemented just 28 days ago.
And as word continues to spread and
the busy summer season approaches,
that number is likely to increase.
And that will result in yet another
benefit for the agency’s ranges.
During the past few years, the PGC
made significant investments into the
ranges for things like lead remediation,
safety barrier reconstruction, redesign
and other work, including repairs from
vandalism.
Despite the fact that the ranges are
open to the public, the bulk of that
work was paid for through hunting and
furtaker license dollars.
The $30 permit lightens that finan-
cial burden and should give the agency
the revenue it needs to maintain the
ranges.
Sure, some things are missing from
the PGC’s ranges, such as vandalism
and abuse. And with the new permit
system, so much can be gained.

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat
Commission and Cabela’s have
partnered to promote fishing in the
state. Cabela’s is tagging hundreds
of fish in selected waters in states
that have Cabela’s retail stores –
including Pennsylvania – and every
one of them is a winner. Among the
winning fish, there are grand prize
winners that might qualify for addi-
tional bonuses based on the winning
angler using or wearing sponsors’
products when they catch a tagged
fish.
The PFBC is Cabela’s state partner
and will tag fish in selected waters,
which will be publicly announced on
May 14, the official start of the con-
test. The contest runs through July
14. PFBC Executive Director John
Arway said the timing of the contest
is perfect because it will coincide
with the PFBC’s Fish-for-Free Day on
Memorial Day, Monday, May 30,
giving vacationing families more
incentive to try fishing.
“The contest creates a fantastic
opportunity to promote all the fish-
ing opportunities we have in Penn-
sylvania to first-time anglers on our
Fish-for-Free Day,” he said. “On this
day, we will hold special events at
many of the selected contest waters.
We will have exhibits, fishing in-
struction and tips, free publications
and more.
“The contest – and in particular
the Fish-for-Free Day – promises to
be fun and exciting for all levels of
anglers,” Arway added. “Now when
someone is fishing and feels that tug
on their line, they’ll be thinking, ‘I’m
reeling in a million dollar prize?’ ”
Fish-for-Free Days allow anyone
(Pennsylvania resident or non-resi-
dent) to legally fish. No fishing li-
cense is required to fish on these
days. All other fishing regulations
apply. The second Fish-for-Free Day
is Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 5.
Winning is as easy as baiting a
hook. Go to the PFBC’s website for
contest and Fish-for-Free informa-
tion at: http://fishandboat.com/
fishformillions.htm. Anglers need to
pre-register and hit their local wa-
ters between May 14 and July 14 for
their chance to win a fish worth $2.2
million.

Allen climbed back into his vehicle and drove to
the next stop to listen again.
Between April 15 and May 5, WCOs and other
personnel with the Pennsylvania Game Commission
conduct an American woodcock singing ground
survey to gauge the size of the population not only
in the state, but in the country as well.
The survey is a system of routes – designed years
ago by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service through
areas that were traditional woodcock habitat and
places that weren’t – and there are 10 stops on each.
Each stop is four-tenths of a mile apart, and the
person running the route spends three minutes at
each one listening for the mating call of a woodcock.
The USFWS uses the data collected from the
routes in several states and uses it to establish gui-
delines for woodcock hunting seasons and bag lim-
its.
According to PGC biologist Kevin Wenner, timing
is everything when it comes to the routes.
“We do it now to take advantage of the courtship
behavior when males are singing,” he said. “They
start the routes shortly after sunset when the court-
ship activity peaks.”
Even though Allen didn’t hear anything on several
of his stops, it didn’t mean there wasn’t any useful
data generated.
“Negatives are just as good,” he said. “Sure, it tells
you that nothing’s there, but it also indicates there
could be a factor – such as habitat change – as to
why they aren’t there anymore.”
Changing habitat is a big reason
why the survey routes are rando-
mized through a variety of areas.
Woodcock prefer early succession-
al forests with dense shrubbery
and moist soil. Fields that are no
longer farmed often revert into
that early successional habitat, so
a place that didn’t hold woodcock
five years ago could transform into
a haven for the small birds.
“The reason we don’t change
where the routes are run is we want to pick up any
habitat changes that may be beneficial to woodcock
or force them out,” Wenner said. “A farm that be-
comes abandoned can quickly revert into grown-up
fields and now becomes a woodcock paradise. By
running the survey route the same way each year,
we can capture that habitat change.”
Across the northeast region, Wenner said the
number of woodcock heard along the routes ranges
between zero and 10. During the last 30 years, he
said, woodcock numbers in general have declined,
and the biggest cause is loss of habitat.
That’s why the PGC and other organizations, such
as the Wildlife Management Institute, are encourag-
ing landowners to create and protect woodcock
habitat. By doing so other species of wildlife would
benefit as well, such as deer, ruffed grouse and even
imperiled bird species such as the golden-winged
warbler. They are just a few of the species that thrive
in the same habitat preferred by woodcock.
“Woodcock are a good focal species for early suc-
cessional cover,” Wenner said. “Birding enthusiasts
and conservationists enjoy watching
their aerial courtship display and
hearing their song. They’re a very
interesting, unique bird.”
One of the keys to the woodcock’s
habitat is moist soil that holds high
numbers of earthworms – their
primary food. Moist soil is also
beneficial to the woodcock because
they feed by probing their long beak
into the ground to search for
worms. On the end of the beak is a
small hinge that allows a woodcock to grab a worm
and pull it out of the ground.
“They are a very unique bird and that’s why we
specifically manage areas to provide woodcock hab-
itat,” Wenner said. “But the habitat they prefer –
early successional forest – is imperiled in Pennsylva-
nia and that can directly impact the woodcock pop-
ulation. If it is happening in an area, the survey
routes will tell us.”

ToddPletcher arrivedinLouis-
ville this spring assured of avoid-
ing the thorny question of when
he would finally win the Ken-
tucky Derby.
Super Saver’s upset victory a
year ago provided the answer.
Now, though, the trainer faces a
fresh batch of inquiries regarding
Uncle Mo, one of his two conten-
ders for next Saturday’s race.
The colt, last year’s 2-year-old
champion, swept his first four ca-
reer starts by a combined 27
1
⁄4
lengths. He was threatening to
turnthe137thrunningof theDer-
by into a coronation, but a stun-
ning loss in the Wood Memorial
on April 9 seems to have
squelched that scenario.
Evenmoreso, it left the upcom-
ingbigrace without a clear-cut fa-
vorite, meaning Derby wagering
could produce huge odds and big
smiles for anyone holding a win-
ning ticket.
The loss also left Pletcher
struggling for an explanation.
“Winning the Derby is awe-
some. It’s great,” he said. “It
doesn’t change your life in a lot of
ways. The feed man still wants to
get paid. Your wife still thinks
you work too much. And if you
get beat in the Wood Memorial
everybody wants to know why.”
Perhaps it was the gastrointes-
tinal infection that was diag-
nosed after the race. Uncle Mo
had led the field with a quarter-
mile to go, but two horses passed
him and he finished third by a
length.
Pletcher said his horse is re-
sponding well to treatment, but
owner Mike Repole still lists him
as “50-50” for the Derby.
“As bad as I want to be in the
Derby, as bad as I want to win the
Derby, I’ll never sacrifice a
horse’s health for my ego,” Re-
pole said.
“Until May 7 comes around
and he’s at that gate, there’s no
guarantees … and that doesn’t
just include Uncle Mo, but that
also includes all the other 19
starters.”
Pletcher knows better than
anyone what can happen on the
way to the starting gate. Last
year, he arrived with Derby favor-
ite Eskendereya only to lose the
horse six days before the race
with a leg injury. He still won
with long shot Super Saver, end-
ing an 0-for-24 skid in America’s
greatest race.
In 2009, Derby favorite I Want
Revenge was scratched on the
morningof the race withanankle
injury.
This year’s TripleCrowntrail is
littered with horses who were in-
jured or didn’t earn their way to
Churchill Downs by failing to im-
press in some of the 30 prep races
held since January.

A sunny week-
end! Haven't
been able to say
those words in a
few weeks. And,
indeed, some
sun will continue
this morning, as
high pressure
slowly loses its
grip on our
weather. A weak
warm front will
arrive from the
west later today,
with skies slowly
becoming over-
cast. A few
showers may be
possible later
tonight, but
much of the day
will remain dry.
The same can't
be said for early
in the work
week. A frontal
systemwill stall
over the region,
allowing rain
showers and iso-
lated thunder-
storms to pop up
through Tuesday
night. Unlike last
week, tempera-
tures will remain
on the cooler
side with more
clouds. Look for
highs right
around 60
tomorrow and
Tuesday before
we get back to a
little sunshine
later in the week.
- Ryan Coyle
NATIONAL FORECAST: A cold front will bring showers and thunderstorms to the Ohio Valley today,
but the strongest of the storms with this system will be found from northeastern Texas to the mid-
Mississippi Valley. Ahead of this system, high pressure will keep the weather pleasant with abundant
sunshine across much of the East Coast. Sunshine will also be widespread over the West Coast states
today.
