DANVILLE, Ky. Vice Presi-
dent Joe Biden and Republican ri-
val Paul RyansparredThursdayin
oftenpersonal terms that exposed
their passions and core beliefs
over the role of their faith, fam-
ilies, and deeply held views about
the role of government in Ameri-
can life and foreign policy.
Both men were assertive from
the outset, a reflection of the
closeness of the presidential race
just weeks before the election,
each eager to trumpet the
strengths of his ticket and equally
zealous inripping the other party.
Biden was aggressive, hoping
to make up for President Barack
Obamas tepid performance in his
opening debate last week against
Republican nominee Mitt Rom-
ney, a performance that reset the
race and thrust the Republicans
back into contention. Pressing to
make his points, Biden at times
raisedhis voice andjabbedhis fin-
ger at moderator Martha Raddatz
of ABC News.
Ryanwasmoremeasured, often
lowering his voice after Biden. A
fresh-facedcongressmanwhohad
never debated on the national
stage despite his 14 years in the
House, Ryan betrayed no signs of
nervousness about theshowdown
with Biden.
Debates by vice presidential
candidates usually have little ef-
fect on elections, but Thursdays
took on added significance after
President Obamas lackluster de-
bate debut on Oct. 3.
Since then, Mitt Romney has
pulled even with Obama in na-
tional polls and closed the gap in
several battleground states.
InFlorida, Romneyopenedupa
7 point lead, according to a new
Tampa Bay Times/Bay News 9/
Miami Herald poll. Obama has a1
percentage point edge over Rom-
ney in a new NBC/Wall Street
Journal/Marist poll of likely vot-
ers, released Thursday. The mar-
gin was the same as before the
Obama-Romney debate. In Ohio,
Obama leads by 6 points. He had
led by 8. And in Virginia, Obama
was up 2, but Romney is now
ahead by 1.

T
hursdays clear skies and brisk temperatures provided perfect pigeon-chasing
weather for Logan Thompson, 2, of Nescopeck, and was fitting for the sale of pump-
kins and other fall favorites at the Wilkes-Barre Farmers Market. Thursdays high was 56
degrees at 2:45 p.m. Another cold front will keep things brisk today, with a high of 52
expected, and a chance of record lows overnight perhaps dropping below 30 degrees
and bringing the first appearance of frost this season. See the complete forecast on 8B.
WILKES-BARRE Saying he
has shown leadership by not tak-
ing a pay increase during tough
economic times, Mayor Tom
Leighton asked for help fromcity
employees and warned of dire
consequences without it.
Leighton, who is in the first
year of his third four-year term,
addressed the citys financial
crunch at councils regularly
scheduled meeting Thursday
night and placed the blame on
outside forces instead of in-house
spending and borrowing.

Luzerne County Manager Robert Lawton will
deliver his proposed 2013 budget to county coun-
cil on Monday.
It will be the first spending plan presented by
Lawton under the new home rule government.
Council members were under the gun amend-
ing the 2012 budget by Feb. 15, a little over a
month after they took office. Lawton started work
as manager after the budget was passed.
Lawton declined to release
specifics, saying he will work
through the weekend finalizing
his submission, emphasizing its
a proposal.
This will not be a take-it-or-
leave-it proposal. Council is a
full partner in this, Lawton
said. The manager proposes.
With staff support from the executive branch, the
legislative body decides.
Council Chairman Tim McGinley said he ex-
pects Lawton will keep his promise to submit a
sustainable plan with no tax increase or one-time
fixes.
This years amended $122.7 million budget
raised taxes 2 percent, tapped $1.4 million in past
borrowed funds to help repay debt and required
about 60 layoffs, leaving about 1,500 employees.
Both council and Lawton warned further cuts

will be necessary in 2013 because
the $1.4 million wont be available
again and another tax increase is
unlikely.
The home rule charter requires
the manager to deliver the pro-
posedbudget tocouncil byOct. 15.
The charter says the manager
must include a message with the
proposed budget that:
Simply and clearly summa-
rizes the budget and its important
features.
Explains county programs,
goals and objectives for the com-
ing year along with the financial
implications.
Highlights major changes in
financial policies, spending, reve-
nue and staffing levels along with
the reasons for those changes.
Reviews the countys out-
standing debt.
Council must adopt abudget be-
tween Nov. 15 and Dec. 15.
The charter allows council to
add, delete, increase or decrease
allocations, though changes cant
exceed the overall budgeted reve-
nue.
A mandatory public budget
hearing was scheduled for Oct. 30
to allow time for council and the
public to absorb the proposal,
McGinley said.
Lawton said he expects thor-
ough and extensive review by a
council. The administration will
be fully responsive to councils
requests for additional informa-
tion and explanation, he said.
A solid budget is part of the
countys plans to obtain a credit
rating, which would allow refi-
nancing to reduce outstanding
debt repayments, officials said. As
of August, the county owed $436
million in principal and interest
through 2027.
Approving a budget also is one
of the essential duties of the 11-
member, part-time council be-
causeit setsspendinglimitsfor the
administration for a year.
The manager doesnt have to
come to council for approval on
purchasesif hehasenoughbudget-
ed funds to cover them unless the
expenditures would cost the coun-
ty $25,000 in a future year or
$75,000 in two or more years.
Council Vice Chairwoman Lin-
daMcCloskyHoucksaidshelooks
forward to a budget process that
wont be condensed in a few
weeks.
I think its going to be a differ-
ent atmosphere than it was in Ja-
nuary. Were going to have more
time to question the manager and
try to refine things, she said.
Under the prior county govern-
ment system, commissioners re-
ceived budget requests from man-
agers at public hearings, but they
did not publicly meet to discuss
and debate budget revisions be-
tween the proposed and final bud-
get.

The manager must post budget
summaries on the county website,

KINGSTONPolice have been
investigating the theft of funds
froma youth basketball organiza-
tion, but a co-founder wants the
public to know that wrongs will
be righted and the organization
will move forward.
Jack Robinson, co-founder and
chief operating officer for the Lu-
zerne County Lightning youth
basketball league, said he and co-
founder and chief executive offi-
cer Curt Lloyd became suspi-
cious of missing funds over the
summer when money started
runninglow. Thats whenthe two
menwent tothe police, Robinson
said on Thursday.
We kept asking for records
and couldnt get anything, said
Robinson, who declined to name
the person in charge of league fi-
nances. He said thousands of dol-
lars are missing.
Amember of the Amateur Ath-
letic Union, the league is open to
any boy or girl in fifth grade
through10th grade in the region.
Last season, there were 158 chil-
dren from school districts in and
around Luzerne County playing
on 16 teams in the league, which
operates on a $450 participation
fee from each student and on
sponsorships, Robinson said.
Because of the missing funds,
some students could not be sent
to tournaments. We want the
kids toknowthat those whowere
wronged, well make it right for
them, Robinson said.
Were going to continue on,
Robinson said. We hope people
wont bail out because of (the
theft).
Robinson said he decided to
speak to the media on the issue
nowso that parents and students
arent shocked when theres a
break in the case, which he ex-
pects to happen in the near fu-
ture.

PLAINS TWP. -- Board of
Commissioners Chairman Ro-
naldFilippini announcedThurs-
day night that the First Street
Bridge, in the Hudson section,
is scheduled to reopen on Oct.
30.
The bridge, which crosses
over Mill Creek on one of the
main streets that connects the
township with Wilkes-Barre,
has been closed for more than a
month, despite initial Luzerne
County engineering estimates
that the bridge would be closed
for only one week.
Several residents complained
about the paving and repair pro-
ject at the townships regular
September meeting. Filippini
acknowledged their frustration
and said the township has little
control over the county project.
In other matters, the commis-
sioners heard the concerns of
Anita Davis of Litchey Drive,
who complained that, subse-
quent to the Mericle companys
construction of a newGeisinger
facility off of East Mountain
Drive, the quality of her well wa-
ter has been completely dimin-
ished.
She said several of the few
neighbors she has have experi-
enced the same problems. She
said she has not had adequate
drinking water for weeks and is
hesitant to take on the costs of
either upgrading her well water
filtration system or connecting
to an existing Pennsylvania
American Water Co. line.
She estimated a filtration up-
grade will cost between $4,000
and $8,000. Likewise, she said
that connecting to a PAWC line
will cost roughly the same
amount, but that option will be
open to her only if each of her
neighbors opt to connect to the
line as well.
Davis said Mericle denied her
claims that blasting during the
constructioncausedanyproper-
ty damage, and the company re-
sponded that her water was of
questionable quality before con-
struction.
She said the company would,
however, grant an easement on
its property if PAWC were to
want to run a line through it.
Officials said they would not
be able toaidwiththe cost of up-
grading her well filtration sys-
tem.
Filippini pledged to reach out
to the water company in hopes
of finding a way to reduce the
costs of any connection project.
Plains Twp. bridge to reopen

BUTLER TWP. The Valley
Regional Fire and Rescue Com-
pany saw its request for fund-
ing to modernize its radio and
other electronic communica-
tions systems to comply with a
federally mandated small band
system approved on Thursday
night.
However, a proposal to pur-
chase new rescue gear was ta-
bled by the Board of Supervi-
sors.
The fire company must com-
ply with a Federal Communica-
tions Commission conversion
to small band. Because of that
the board voted unanimously
to accept the $5,498 bid from
Keystone Communications of
Northumberland to buy new
radios and effect changes to
the fire companys existing sys-
tems.
When it came to rescue
equipment, in particular
$6,207 to obtain rescue rope,
supervisors Charles Altmiller
and Ransom Young, raised
questions about the fire depart-
ment having fiscal problems.
At the initiative of Chairman
Brian Kisenwether it was de-
cidedto table the request pend-
ing further budgetary review.
The supervisors did, howev-
er, approve the purchase of a
newpolice car, along withcom-
puter accessories. The pur-
chase will be through the COS-
TARS program, Maryann Pe-
trilla, township manager, said.
She also said bids will be solic-
ited and are scheduled to be
opened on Oct. 22 for two ol-
der police cars, several trucks
and used fire company appara-
tus.
Bids will be sought via legal
advertising, she said.
In other agenda items:
The supervisors autho-
rized Berkheimer Associates
to impose and retain the cost of
pursuing delinquent taxes.
Berkheimer was also ap-
proved to collect a local servic-
es tax of $52 per year.
The supervisors voted to
advertise a public hearing on
an earned income tax of 1.5
percent. Petrilla said adoption
of the tax is scheduled at the
Nov. 8 meeting.
The supervisors heard
complaints from Wayne Ram-
pula and Thomas Yurkanin
about openburning going onin
the High Meadows Crossroad
Farms development.
After the meeting, Sue Ros-
si, who is leading an effort to
expand the board to five mem-
bers, stated a referendum has
been approved by Luzerne
County officials. The referen-
dum will appear as a public
question on the Nov. 6 ballot

WILKES-BARRE
Bail reduction denied
A
Luzerne County judge on Thurs-
day denied a bail reduction re-
quest of a man accused of leaving the
scene of a crash that killed two peo-
ple on Sept. 2.
Judge William Amesbury said he
would not reduce the $150,000 bail
amount that is
holding Walter Paul
Raven at the county
prison.
Raven, 49, of
Industrial Drive,
Jenkins Township,
is jailed on two
counts of accidents
involving death and
one count each of tampering with
evidence, driving with a suspended
license, five traffic violations and
various drug charges.
Investigators say Raven drove
away after a crash involving a motor-

The West Nile Virus season
this year set a record for the high-
est number of positive samples in
the states history and led to two
deaths, including a retired
Wilkes-Barre police officer.
The disease had an impact
statewide: 25 human positives,
two human deaths, 3,409 infect-
ed mosquito samples and a first
positive test occurringMay 3, the
earliest ever detection here.
Health officials said the season
is likely over with a frost expect-
ed to cover most of the state to-
day and Saturday.
Amanda Witman, a Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion spokeswoman, said We
were hit very hard this year. The
numbers speak for themselves.
She said the cold temperatures
are a big help in eradicating the
mosquito population (which car-
ry the virus and can spread it to
humans).
The lack of cold weather last
winter and a warmer than usual
springledtothe boominmosqui-
to populations and the outbreak
of the virus.
The old record for positives
statewide was 2,282, set in 2003.
That was surpassed in August.
Typically, Witmansaid, a positive
test doesnt register until mid-
June.
This year it came in Berks
County on May 3, an early indica-
tion that it might be a bad year.
Only 15 counties of the states
67 didnt register a West Nile pos-
itive this year. Several in the
states northeast region, includ-
ing Wyoming, Wayne, Susque-
hanna, Pike, Bradford and Sulli-
van, were among them.
The high numbers were not
just a Pennsylvania issue. Many
states were dealing withunusual-
ly high positives, including more
than 169 deaths nationwide.
Texas, the hardest hit state,
had 54 deaths and more than
1,500 people there contractedthe
virus this year, according to the
Centers for Disease Control.
The CDC reported that 4,713
human West Nile virus infections
have been reported to them
through Tuesday.
Two people died in the Penn-
sylvania, including Joseph Kra-
wetz, 82, of Wilkes-Barre, in Au-
gust, and an unnamed Philadel-
phia man in September.
Since data was first collected
on the disease in 2000, 27 people
have died statewide from the vi-
rus. Nine died in both 2002 and
2003 and two died in 2004, 2005,
2006 and 2012.
Witman said the state will not
do anything out of the ordinary
over the winter to combat mos-
quito populations.
Well let Mother Nature take
its course and see what kind of
cards were dealt next spring,
she said.

WILKES-BARRE A gun used in the
shooting of a 20-year-old man was stolen,
police allege, and nowthe victimis facing
charges he was illegally in possession of
the weapon.
City police earlier this week filed charg-
es of receiving stolenproperty andposses-
sion of a firearm with an altered serial
number against Christian Sholly. District
Judge Rick Cronauer approved the charg-
es and issued an arrest warrant for Sholly
on Tuesday.
Sholly suffered a gunshot wound to his
chest inside his residence at 86 Hutson
St., Wilkes-Barre, on Sept. 10.
Police alleged Shollys half-brother, To-
ny Ransome, 15, fired a round inside the
home that struck his older brother.
Sholly underwent surgery at Geisinger
Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains
Township.
Ransome was found responsible for the
shooting by Luzerne County Judge Tina
Polachek Gartley at a juvenile delinquen-
cy hearing on Oct. 4. He is scheduled to
appear for adispositionhearing, similar to
a sentencing hearing in adult court, on
Dec. 14.
An investigation determined the weap-
on, a .22-caliber handgun, was stolenfrom
a Stanton Street, Wilkes-Barre, residence
on Aug. 1.
A ballistics examination was able to re-
trieve the guns serial number despite it
being altered.
According to the criminal complaint:
Investigators were told that Ransome,
Sholly and his Shollys 16-year-old girl-
friend smoked marijuana in the house be-
fore going to a second floor bedroom.
Sholly took the gun out of his waistband
and placed it on a dresser.
Thegirlfriendtestifiedat thedelinquen-
cy hearing that Ransome picked up the
gun and aimed it at her and Sholly.
Sholly followed Ransome out of the
bedroom telling his younger brother to
put the gun down when he was allegedly
shot.
Sholly has since been released from the
hospital.
Anyone with information about the
whereabouts of Sholly is asked to call
Wilkes-Barre police at 826-8106.
Victim charged with illegal possession of gun
Christian Sholly, 20, was shot by his
half-brother, 15, on Sept. 10. Police
now are looking for Sholly.

SANAA, YEMEN
Al-Qaida concerns raised
A
drive-by shooting Thursday that
killed a top Yemeni security official
who worked at the U.S. Embassy in
Sanaa has raised concern that al-Qaida
militants here are bouncing back and
getting bolder after suffering defeats this
year in a U.S.-Yemeni military offensive.
Al-Qaida in Yemen has carried out a
string of assassinations of top security
and military officials and deadly sui-
cide bombings in recent months. Secu-
rity officials said they believe it has a
hit list to kill more in an attempt to
paralyze Yemens new leadership in-
stalled this year and throw the anti-al-
Qaida assaults into turmoil.
The new killing also raises the possi-
bility the group could turn its assassi-
nation campaign against American
interests as well.

Chinese writer wins Nobel
Chinese writer Mo Yan won the
Nobel Prize in literature on Thursday, a
cause of pride for a government that
had disowned the only previous Chi-
nese winner of the
award, an exiled crit-
ic.
National television
broke into its news-
cast to announce the
prize exceptional
for the tightly scripted
broadcast that usually
focuses on the doings
of Chinese leaders.
The Swedish Academy, which selects
the winners of the prestigious award,
praised Mos hallucinatory realism
saying it merges folk tales, history and
the contemporary.
Among the works highlighted by the
Nobel judges were Red Sorghum,
(1993), The Garlic Ballads (1995),
Big Breasts & Wide Hips (2004).

Meningitis toll rises
The government said Thursday 170
people now have been sickened in the
meningitis outbreak linked to tainted
steroid shots, and 14 of them have died.
Idaho becomes the 11th state to
report at least one illness. The others
are Florida, Indiana, Maryland, Michi-
gan, Minnesota, New Jersey, North
Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee and Virginia.
The outbreak of rare fungal meningi-
tis has been linked to steroid shots for
back pain. A specialty pharmacy in
Massachusetts has recalled the steroid
that was sent to clinics in 23 states, as
well as everything else it makes.

Feds target MS-13 gang
The Obama administration declared
the ultra-violent street gang MS-13 to
be an international criminal group on
Thursday, an unprecedented crack-
down targeting the finances of the
sprawling U.S. and Central American
gang infamous for hacking and stab-
bing victims with machetes.
The Treasury Department formally
designated MS-13, or Mara Salvatru-
cha, a transnational criminal orga-
nization. The aim is to freeze it out of
the U.S. financial system and seize
what are estimated to be millions of
dollars in criminal profits from drug
and human smuggling and other
crimes committed in this country.
The gang was founded by immi-
grants fleeing El Salvadors civil war
more than two decades ago.

ANKARA, Turkey A plane inter-
cepted by Turkish fighter jets on its way
fromMoscowto Damascus was carrying
equipment and ammunition destined for
the Syrian Defense Ministry, Turkeys
prime minister said Thursday.
Recep Tayyip Erdogans comments fol-
lowa fierce denial by Syria that anything
illegal had been aboard the Airbus A320
that was forced by Turkey to land in An-
kara late Wednesday. Syria, whose rela-
tions with neighboring Turkey have
plummeted over the Syrian war, branded
it an act of piracy.
Earlier in the day, Turkish officials had
rejected claims by Syrias ally, Russia,
that Turkey had endangered the lives of
Russian citizens on board the aircraft.
These were equipment and ammuni-
tions that were being sent froma Russian
agency ... to the Syrian Defense Minis-
try, Erdogan told reporters in Ankara.
Their examination is continuing and
the necessary (action) will follow, he
added.
Yeni Safak, a newspaper close to the
Turkish government, reported Thursday
there were 10 containers aboard the
plane, whose contents included radio re-
ceivers, antennas and equipment
thought to be missile parts.
Turkish state-run television TRT also
reported the plane was carrying military
communications equipment.
A Western diplomat in Ankara said
Turkish authorities had found military
equipment on board the plane, but did
not elaborate.
The plane was allowed to continue to
Damascus after several hours, without
the cargo.
Any transfer of any military equip-
ment to the Syrian regime at this time is
very concerning, and we look forward to
hearingmore fromthe Turkishside when
they get to the bottom of what they
found, said State Department spokes-
woman Victoria Nuland.
She declined to comment on Turkish
reports that the intelligence on the
planes cargo had come from the United
States.

Bashar Assad to step down and Damas-

WASHINGTON A robust
registration push by President
Barack Obamas re-election cam-
paign has resulted in more Dem-
ocrats than Republicans on the
voter rolls in most battleground
states, including Florida and Ne-
vada, according to data from
state election boards.
But Republicans have hadtheir
own registration success, nar-
rowing the Democratic voter ad-
vantage since 2008inmanyof the
battlegrounds, including Iowa.
And party officials say they have
put more resources into persuad-
ing independent voters who are
already registered to cast their
ballots for party nominee Mitt
Romney.
We do not put as big an em-
phasis on voter registration pro-
grams as we do in talking to and
persuading independents, said
Rick Wiley, political director for
the Republican National Com-
mittee. I would prefer to go in
andtalktoanindependent whois
already registered. They have a
voter history.
The presidents campaign,
which promoted the voter regis-
tration data Thursday, argues
that its ability to register hun-
dreds of thousands of new voters
is indicative of battlegroundstate
fieldoperations that alsohavethe
resources to get voters to the
polls, particularly during early
voting. And campaign officials
say a deeper look at the registra-
tion numbers shows an uptick in
new Hispanic voters and voters
under the age of 30 voting
blocs where the president has an
advantage.
Obamas registration and get-
out-the-vote operations in 2008
playeda crucial role inhis getting
elected. With the White House
race tightening less than four
weeks from Election Day, the
Democratic campaign is banking
on its organization in the battle-
ground states to give Obama an
edge.
Deadlines to vote in the No-
vember election have passed in
many states, but the registration
totals are expected to shift some-
what in the coming days as last-
minute entries are counted.
The most current data, availa-
ble online from state election
boards, give Democrats a regis-
tration advantage in most of the
battleground states with party
identification: Florida, Iowa,
North Carolina and Nevada. The
party also significantly outpaces
Republican registration in Penn-
sylvania by more than 1 million
voters.
Republicans have a voter regis-
tration advantage in Colorado
and New Hampshire.

ST. LOUIS Mexican drug
cartels are quietly filling the
void in the nations drug mar-
ket created by the long effort to
crack down on American-made
methamphetamine, flooding
U.S. cities with exceptionally
cheap, extraordinarily potent
meth from factory-like super-
labs.
Although Mexican meth is
not new to the U.S. drug trade,
it now accounts for as much as
80 percent of the meth sold
here, according to the Drug En-
forcement Administration.
And it is as much as 90 percent
pure, a level that offers users a
faster, more intense andlonger-
lasting high.
These are sophisticated,
high-tech operations in Mexico
that are operating with ex-
treme precision, said Jim
Shroba, a DEA agent in St.
Louis. Theyre moving it out
the door as fast as they can
manufacture it.
The cartels are expanding in-
to the U.S. meth market just as
they did with heroin: develop-
ing an inexpensive, highly ad-
dictive form of the drug and
sending it through the same
pipeline already used to funnel
marijuana and cocaine, author-
ities said.
Seizures of meth along the
Southwest border have more
than quadrupled during the
last several years. DEA records
reviewed by The Associated
Press show that the amount of
seized meth jumped from
slightly more than 4,000
pounds in 2007 to more than
16,000 pounds in 2011.
During that same period, the
purity of Mexicanmethshot up
too, from 39 percent in 2007 to
88 percent by 2011, according
to DEA documents. The price
fell 69 percent, tumbling from
$290 per pure gramto less than
$90.
Mexican meth has a clearer,
glassier appearance than more
crudely producedformulas and
often resembles ice fragments,
usually with a clear or bluish-
white color. It often has a smell
people compare to ammonia,
cat urine or even burning plas-
tic.
The rise of Mexican meth
doesnt mean American labs
have disappeared. The number
of U.S. meth labs continues to
rise even as federal, state and
local laws place heavy restric-
tions on the purchase of cold
and allergy pills containing
pseudoephedrine, a major
component in the most com-
mon meth recipe.

were seized in Queretaro, Mexico, in June 2011.
NEW YORK The Craigslist ad of-
fered Percocet pills for sale, but warned:
No LE please. Meaning: No law en-
forcement.
Like that made a difference.
The 40-year-old man accused of plac-
ing the ad was among 21 people arrested
in an attempt by the NewYork Police De-
partment to make an example out of
some of the smallest of small-time drug
dealers: students, young professionals
and others who clean out the medicine
cabinet and then are brazen enough
andfoolishenoughtooffer thepills for
up to $20 a pop over the Internet.
Whether the drug deal occurs on the
street corner or on the Internet, its a
crime, Bridget Brennan, special narcot-
ics prosecutor for New York City, said
Thursday in a statement announcing the
arrests.
Undercover narcotics investigators an-
swered the ads and ended up buying
handfuls of powerful prescription pain-
killers and other pills for a few hundred
dollars, typically in broad daylight and in
public settings.
Some of the sellers turned out to be
run-of-the mill drug dealers also ped-
dling cocaine andheroin, police said. But
many were more mainstream: Among
those arrestedwere a NewYork Universi-
ty graduate student, a financial adviser
and a 62-year-old woman who works as a
freelance photographer.
The pills came from the sellers own
meds or were stolen from relatives,
friends and co-workers, authorities said.
Some of the dealers were out to make a
quick buck even though their back-
grounds would suggest they didnt need
the money.
Because the drugs have legal medical
uses, they carry less of a stigma than ille-
gal narcotics. After they were arrested,
some of the sellers claimed they didnt
knowwhat they were doing was a crime.
But investigators dont buy it.
Youd have to be living under a rock to
not know its illegal, Brennan said.
The undercover investigators began
answeringCraigslist ads late last year. By
the time they were done, they had made
63 buys about $19,000 in pills and
$10,400 in cocaine.

THE BES T RO O FING ,
HANOVER TWP. A wom-
en-only obstacle race changed
David Homa.
When Homa, 36, topped the
scales at 235 pounds and start-
ed wearing size 40 jeans late
last year, he realized he needed
to transform. I did the diet
thing for a few months and lost
someweight, but I wantedtodo
more, Homa said.
About the time the Dirty Girl
Mud Run was held at Montage
Mountain in May, Homa began
surfing websites for a similar
event that required physical
challenges and mental endu-
rance. He found one to his lik-
ing: the Spartan Race.
Homa, of Hanover Township,
said hes been mesmerized ever
since. Hell be participating in
his third Spartan Race this
weekend, called the Spartan
Beast, inWinnsboro, S.C. It will
be his biggest challenge todate.
Its a series, Homa ex-
plained. The first race in July
was the Spartan Sprint (Blue
Mountain Ski Resort) that was
five miles, and the Spartan Su-
per (Mountain Creek Ski Re-
sort in Vernon, N.J.) in August
was11miles. TheSpartanBeast
is about 15 miles.
Running up and down steep
inclines with a 40-pound bag
across the shoulders, jumping
over walls 8 feet high, climbing
multiple ropes to ring a bell 25
feet off the ground, crawling in
mud under barbed wire, cross-
ing a raging river by rope and
jumping through flames may
not sound like a fun time.
Homa, said hell have it no
other way. His wife, Kelly, and
twosons, Julian, 11, andJayden,
8, will cheer him on. Julian ex-
pects to take part in the childs
Spartan Race in South Caroli-
na. It will be Julians second
time ina SpartanRace. He com-
peted in the Vernon, N.J. event.
My first experience was
awesome and very exciting,
Julian said. We jumped over a
wall 3 feet highandranthrough
mud and a tube.
Julian said he does not train
with his father and stays in
shape by playing soccer.
He is on the U12 boys team
with the Hanover Area Youth
Recreational Soccer club. Ho-
ma coaches Jayden on the U9
boys team.
Homa began training in May,
running six to eight miles a day
several times a week. After his
first Spartan race in July, Homa
realized he needed to change
his training routine.
My quads hurt after that
first race, Homa said. I
couldnt move the next day. My
wife hit me in the leg and it felt
like I got stabbed. Believe it or
not, that pain did not discour-
age me. It motivated me to do
more.
Homa began running the
Sugar Notch Trail, a rocky path
that ascends 740 feet within a
mile. Training on an unstable
steep surface has helped, he
said.
In his second Spartan Race,
where he ran up and down ski
slopes with a 40-pound bag on
his shoulders, Homa finished
56th out of 4,230 participants.
My legs didnt hurt as bad,
but I found out I needed more
upper-body strength, he said.
My strength was running up
those steep hills. My weakness
by far is my upper-body
strength as I learned climbing
over walls and up the ropes.
Homa recently joined North-
east Crossfit in Wilkes-Barre to
build upper-body strength.
A 1994 graduate of Hanover
Area Junior/Senior High
School -- where he was a three-
sport athlete in swimming,
track and golf -- Homa said he
has one goal.
I have two children and a
wife andI want tobe something
they want to look up to, Homa
said. The more I push myself
and showmy immediate family
I can do it, the happier Ill be.
Im hoping to encourage my
family to succeed at any chal-
lenge.
Now hes a Spartan
Area man looking to do more
than diet found races that
took training to new level.

WILKES-BARRE A Pittston
manchargedwithhavinganinap-
propriate relationship with four
teenage girls and conspiring to
rob a food delivery person was
sentenced Thursday to 2 to 6
years in state prison.
Carlos AntonioRios, 20, of Par-
sonage Street, was sentenced on
charges of criminal conspiracy to
commit robbery and four counts
of statutory sexual assault.
Judge Fred Pierantoni said
Rios alsomust serve12months of
special probation, complete sex-
ual offender treatment and will
receive over 340 days credit for
time already served in prison.
There is no excuse for your
(actions), Pierantoni told Rios,
who noted he is young and has a
full life ahead of him. You have a
chance to rehabilitate yourself.
Rios pleaded guilty to the
charges on two different occa-
sions in August.
Police allege Rios pressured a
13-year-oldgirl intohavingsexin-
side a Riverview Manor apart-
ment in late December.
She said he slapped her, called
her names and threatened to kill
her if she told anyone.
Rios told police he only lec-
turedthe13-year-oldandtwooth-
er female juveniles about sex. He
believed the girl was 17, he said.
During the investigation in-
volving the 13-year-old, police
learned Rios dated and had sex-
ual encounters with a 14-year-old
girl in June 2011and a15-year-old
girl and 14-year-old girl in No-
vember and December.
In the robbery case, police said
Rios and two other men conspir-
ed to rob and assault a man deliv-
ering food in Pittston in June
2011. Police said the three men
placed a pellet gun to the mans
throat and struck himin the head
while demanding money.
Brad Huzzard of Taylor was
sentenced to 15 to 30 months in

bery, while Ronald Perschau of

WILKES-BARRE One-year-
old Sincere Butler will never
walk, talk, play or even taste
food, prosecutors saidThursday.
The boy will remain in a vege-
tative state for his entire life and
is expected to live only to 20.
This child has a life sen-
tence, Amy Thomas, a county
Children and Youth caseworker,
said before the childs father,
Kashawn Butler, was sentenced
to five years, nine months to 12
years, five months in state pris-
on.
Butler, 18, was sentenced on
charges of aggravated assault,
simple assault, reckless endan-
germent and endangering the
welfare of children in a case in
which prosecutors say he vio-
lently shook the child in Decem-
ber 2011 when he was 3 months
old. He previously pleaded no
contest to the charges.
No man should have the abil-
ity to do what you did to this
child, Judge Fred Pierantoni
told Butler.
Assistant district attorneys
Mamie Phillips and Maureen
Collins called Thomas to testify
Thursday about the childs con-
dition, and showed photographs
of the boy to Pierantoni.
Thomas said she is the boys
only visitor and he recently had
surgery to relieve pressure on
his brain.
He loves being held and
even though he is blind he
knows there are people around
him, Thomas said.
Several of Butlers family
members cried out Thursday
when prosecutors described the
childs injuries, andsaidsome in-
formation was not true. Pie-
rantoni warned outbursts would
not be tolerated.
Butlers attorney, Christopher
ODonnell, said his client has no
prior record, is an excellent stu-
dent and is attending drug-and-
alcohol counseling.
He is taking steps to try to
improve himself, ODonnell
said.
Butler did not speak but of-
fered a letter to Pierantoni that
was also read by prosecutors.
I read the letter, and (Butler)
doesnt get it, Phillips said. He
thinks they are going to be a fam-
ily some day he has no idea
what that little boys life is like.
No words can express what But-
lers actions have done.
Prosecutors say Butler fed his
son when the mother, Mercedes
Pearson, and her mother, Lasha-
wanda Pearson, walked to a
nearby store on Dec. 4.
Butler told police he shook
the infant after he became upset
at the baby for throwing up and
crying, according to the criminal
complaint. He said the baby
stopped breathing after throw-
ing up.
The child was revived by city
paramedics and rushed to
Wilkes-Barre General Hospital.
He was later flown to Geisinger
Medical Center in Danville.
Doctors at the Danville hospi-
tal said the baby had injuries
consistent with shaken baby
syndrome, including hemor-
rhages behind the eyes.
Sincere Butler has since been
released from Geisinger and is
staying at St. Josephs in Scran-
ton, an assisted-living facility,
where he receives round-the-
clock care.
Man gets up to 12 years
on shaken baby charge
Alleged action leaves his son
Sincere Butler in vegetative
state for life, prosecutors say.

The solution has never been easier!
HARRISBURG Jerry and
Dottie Sandusky wrote defiant
letters to his judge before sen-
tencing, attacking the motives
of his victims, expressing a loss
of faith in the judicial system
and insisting he isnt a child
molester.
The letters were released
Thursday by Judge John Cle-
land, two days after he sen-
tenced the former Penn State
assistant coach to at least 30
years in prison for 45 counts of
child sexual abuse.
Dottie Sandusky wrote July 9
that she never saw her husband
do anything inappropriate to
any child, a statement that
echoed her trial testimony.
She was deeply critical of her
son Matt Sandusky, who had
been expected to be a defense
witness until the trial, when he
claimed to investigators he also
had been abused by Jerry Sand-
usky.
Matt Sandusky has been di-
agnosed with bipolar disorder,
but he refuses to take his med-
ication, she wrote.
Matt Sanduskys civil lawyer
Joel Feller, who also represents
at least five other victims or po-
tential claimants, said the let-
ters were part of a failed strate-
gy to blame others for Jerry
Sanduskys crimes.
Dottie Sandusky told Cleland
she had lost faith in the legal
system.
Jerry Sanduskys three-page
letter, dated Sept. 27, starts out
by saying he did not expect le-
niency and was not asking for
it.
In many places, he used the
same or similar language as the
statement he read in court be-
fore sentencing and in a radio
statement he released late
Monday.

HARRISBURG The appar-
ent dismissal of Pennsylvanias
state parks director is raising
questions about whether Gov.
Tom Corbett is making plans to
allow mining, quarrying or tim-
bering on or below the lands.
Corbett administration offi-
cials have not said whether or
why they wanted John Norbeck
out of the job he has held since
2006.
Chris Novak, a spokeswoman
for the Department of Conserva-
tion and Natural Resources,
which oversees the state parks
bureau, said Thursday she would
not discuss a personnel matter
but there is no connection to tim-
bering or mining efforts.
DCNR also does not plan to
make any changes to policies re-
lated to commercial timbering or
mining on state park lands, No-
vak said in an emailed statement.
Norbeck told the Pittsburgh
Post-Gazette on Sunday that he
received a termination letter on
Oct. 1 from the states human re-
sources office telling him his last
day would be Friday unless he of-
fered to resign. Norbeck submit-
ted his resignation but asked for
and received a two-week exten-
sion until Oct. 19, he told the
newspaper.
Novak confirmed the Oct. 19
resignation date but would not
comment on whether Norbeck
was sent a termination letter.
Norbeck said he was told by an
executive assistant to DCNRSec-
retary RichardAllanonly that the
administration has decided to
go in a different direction.
But Norbeck also told the
newspaper he had opposed re-
quests by Butler-based Ameri-
kohl Mining Inc., to mine lime-
stone beneath Laurel Ridge State
Park in Somerset County and ob-
jected to discussion by DCNRs
deputy secretary for parks and
forestry, Ellen Ferretti, about al-
lowingcommercial timberingop-
erations in state parks.
Ferretti on Thursday declined
to comment through an adminis-
trative aide.

dismissal raises questions
Some wonder if governor is
eyeing mining, quarrying and
timbering in state parks.

L
ieutenant General Retired
Fletcher C. Booker Jr., 92, of Te-
questa, Fla., and Craigville, Mass.,
passed away Wednesday, Oct. 10,
2012, at Hospice of Palm Beach
County in Jupiter, Fla.
He was borninBrooklyn, N.Y., on
July 5, 1920, to Mildred and Fletch-
er C. Booker Sr., who later settled in
Wilkes-Barre.
Mr. Booker began his military ca-
reer at Fork Union Military Acade-
my in Fork Union, Va. He later at-
tended Virginia Military Institute
and after graduating in 1941, en-
tered active service as a second lieu-
tenant.
DuringWorldWar II, he servedin
the European theater of operations.
He left the Army in 1946 as a major
in the field artillery. After serving in
the Army Reserve, he was trans-
ferred to the Pennsylvania National
Guard in 1948.
During the Korean War, Major
Booker served as an artillery advi-
sor to the Republic of Korea Army.
Mr. Booker was appointed exec-
utive officer of the 109th Field Artil-
lery Battalion in May of 1955. He
served at that capacity until being
promoted to lieutenant colonel in
charge of the1st and 2nd battalions,
which made up the complete battal-

The Pennsylvania Depart-
ment of Agriculture confirmed
on Thursday the first positive
case of Chronic WastingDisease
in the state on a deer farm in
Adams County, on the Mary-
land border.
Thediseaseis fatal indeer, elk
and moose, but there is no evi-
dence it can be transmitted to
humans, according to the Cen-
ters for Disease Control andPre-
vention and The World Health
Organization.
The positive sample was tak-
en from a white-tailed deer at
1491NewChester Rd., NewOx-
ford, and tested as part of Penn-
sylvanias CWD monitoring ef-
forts. The sample tissue was
tested at the Pennsylvania Vet-
erinary Laboratory in Harris-
burgandverifiedat the National
Veterinary Services Laboratory
in Ames, Iowa.
Samantha Krepps, press sec-
retary for the department of
agriculture, said the Adams
County deer was a captive ani-
mal that had died. The farmer
sent the deer to be tested due to
symptoms it displayed before it
died, she said.
In addition to the Adams
County location, the depart-
ment has quarantinedtwofarms
directly associated with the pos-
itive deer at 6464 Jacks Hollow
Rd., Williamsport, Lycoming
County, and 61 Pickett Road,
Dover, York County. The quar-
antine prevents movement of
animals on and off the premises
andthe other two farms were in-
cluded because deer were
moved to those locations from
the Adams County site.
Krepps said there are no re-
ports of deer escaping into the
wild from any of the quarantin-
ed farms.
Jay Delaney, a commissioner
with the state Game Commis-
sion representing the northeast
region, said that as of Thursday
there is no indication the dis-
ease is present in wild deer in
the state.
To date CWD has not been
found in Pennsylvanias wild
deer population, said Game
Commission Executive Direc-
tor Carl G. Roe. Concerns over
CWD should not prevent any-
one from enjoying deer hunting
and consuming meat from
healthy animals.
Roesaidhunters shouldshoot
only healthy-appearinganimals,
and take precautions like wear-
ing rubber gloves when field-
dressing their deer and washing
thoroughly when finished.
Chronic Wasting Disease
found in deer in state
Its fatal but theres no
evidence it can be
transmitted to humans.
Staff and wire report
one particular county, the pro-
gramhashada98percent success
rate.
Ajudge presiding over depend-
ency court depends on court ad-
vocates to gather information
about the abused or neglected
child or children involved. The
judge relies on that person to
monitor the case from its incep-
tionandreport about progressbe-
ing made.
I dont doubt the programwill
thrive almost immediately,
Jones said. The demand will ex-
ceedhowquickly we cangrow.
Hockensmith said there are
several other ways the communi-
ty can help with the program if
theyareunabletodonatethetime
neededto be a volunteer.
Hockensmithsaidthat inabout
twoyearswhengrant moneyisno
longer available, theprogramwill
be requiredtobecome a non-prof-
it organization. Volunteerswill be
needed to make that happen, he
said, so the program can contin-
ue.
Other ways include financial
support through donations and
spreading the word to others that
the programis inneed.
To date, Hockensmith said,
there are 70,000 CASA programs
in the United States that serve
250,000childrenfrom950offices.
Research has shown, Hockens-
mith said, that children who are
aided by CASA are more likely to
be adopted, more likely to be
placed in foster care and get ser-
vices they andtheir family need.

NANTICOKE -- Bullying was
the topic of concern at Thurs-
days Greater Nanticoke Area
School Board meeting when an
expert and a parent confronted
district officials.
Mental health professional Jo
Ann Stone told the board about
the concerns of 60 students who
had participated in a grief coun-
seling session with her at the St.
Faustina Parish in Nanticoke af-
ter the suicide of a GNA student
in September.
Stone, of Scranton, said many
of the students were angry and
felt that bullying was an issue in
the students suicide.
The kids would like to know
what happens to bullies, she
said.
Stone praised the district for
its efforts to provide programs
on bullying, but she wanted to
know what the district conse-
quences are for students who
bully.
The kids have to know there
are consequences for their ac-
tions, she said.
When board members men-
tioned suspension as one of the
consequences, Stone suggested
that suspensions are actually
welcomed by some students as a
holiday.
She suggested revoking the
privilege of participation in
sports and other extracurricular
events would be a more effective
punishment than suspension.
Parent Julia Robins of Nanti-
coke said bullying was a prob-
lem at the high school. She said
one of her children had with-
drawn from the school this week
because of being bullied.
Robins listed the people she
had contacted at the school con-
cerning incidents in which her
daughter had been called vulgar
names by other students.
Board members were silent as
Robins told of how she had re-
ported bullying early in the
week to the schools police offi-
cer and the schools guidance de-
partment.
She said she had received no
feedback about what was being
done to the stop it.
Robins too felt that conse-
quences that mattered to the
students would stop the behav-
ior.
Stone said bullying today was
not the same old stuff. Its a dis-
ease.
Suicide is the number three
killer in America of children
aged 10 to 24, she said.
When asked, Superintendent
Anthony Perrone said that he
was unaware of the situation
with Robins child.
Board President Jeff Kozlofski
asked high school Principal John
Gorham if he had been told of it.
When he said no, Kozlofski said,
Make sure this is ended now.
Gorham assured the board
that all reported incidents were
addressed.
Were very consistent with
our discipline, he said.
Perrone said the issue of bully-
ing was complex.
Bullying begins at home. Its
unfair to say that its the schools
fault, Perrone said.
Board Solicitor Vito DeLuca
suggested that any teacher, ad-
ministrator or staff member who
hears about bullying should be
required to report it to the su-
perintendent.
GNA board hears more about bullying
Expert, parent tells officials
that they can and should do
more to stop the torment.

TomLeighton
Wilkes-Barres mayor, who has held the citys top job
for nine years, took the unusual step this week of
asking employees to accept voluntary furloughs of
six weeks or longer. Workers have until the end of the month to reply.
Meanwhile, a budget for next year is expected to be released Monday.
Wealth redistribution
as old as Social Security
C
urrently, mainstream media and pro-
gressive champions are pooh-poohing
President Obamas wealth redistrib-
ution comments made in 1998. Their com-
mon retort is this: Do you consider Social
Security wealth redistribution?
Well, actually, this program initiated by
legendary progressive Franklin D. Roose-
velt is the purest form of wealth redistrib-
ution. All workers paying SSI taxes have
almost 13 percent of their annual earnings
taken from them and immediately given to
someone else. For up to 45 years of their
working lives they have no say, ownership
or control over this money.
Consider the following example of how
this could affect a typical middle-class
American worker. A self-employed person
earning $45,000 yearly who invests 13
percent of this into a stock mutual fund for
41 years can expect to have more than a
million dollars in his or her account, based
on a historical return of 8 percent. The
same worker applying 13 percent of his or
her earnings to SSI for 41 years who sud-
denly expires at age 61 can expect to leave
a death benefit to their family courtesy of
Uncle Sam of $255.
The simple point is wealth redistrib-
ution programs have the capacity to hurt
hardworking, middle-class Americans and
reward non-achievers, which is the very
audience Obama was aiming for with his
famous you did not build this speech.
A retired worker who did not save a
penny of his or her income over 45 years
qualifies for a host of taxpayer-subsidized
benefits, while the worker who saved and
invested ends up paying for them. Every
time you see an obituary of a worker who
died in their 60s or younger, chalk up
another casualty to FDRs SSI Ponzi
scheme.
So is Social Security a wealth redistrib-
ution program that routinely hurts middle-
class Americans? You betcha.

Consumers should use
reliable care agencies
T
he recent article about an elderly King-
ston woman who was robbed by a
health aide caught my attention. The
aide reportedly stole more than $17,000
worth of jewelry and coins from the wom-
ans apartment.
From what I could tell, the woman hired
the aide privately, meaning without an
agency involved. If you are thinking about
asking someone into your home to help an
elderly person, it is important that you use
a reputable agency.
At Home Instead Senior Care, we screen
our caregivers with state police criminal
background checks, county-level checks at
the magistrates office, reference checks,
drug screenings, Department of Motor
Vehicle checks and a thorough interview
process. Seniors can be vulnerable, and it
is important to take precautions.

THE TIMES LEADER www.timesleader.com FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2012 PAGE 11A
JUST AS 9/11 flipped the switch about how
our country viewed protecting our home-
land, so has the Jerry Sandusky scandal
flipped a switch about how we think about
child abuse. When it comes to child abuse,
absolutely no one in Pennsylvania can now
say, We didnt know or We werent
aware.
Most of us have wondered how a person
could prey on children. Many of us have
proclaimed without equivocation what we
would have done given the opportunity. The
artificial situations we create in our minds
are never as messy as real life, though, and
often we fail to realize how much we dont
know about the complexity of our states
Child Protective Services Law and the dy-
namics that accompany child abuse and
neglect.
Mandated reporters those individuals
who have a rigid legal requirement to report
suspected child abuse have been under the
spotlight as a result of the Sandusky scandal.
In Pennsylvania, the Child Protective Ser-
vices Law and the accompanying Protective
Service Regulations govern the requirements
for reporting child abuse.
In short form, heres what they say:
Anyone in Pennsylvania who has reason-
able cause to suspect that a child has been or
is being abused may report. The toll-free
number for ChildLine, the states child abuse
registry and hotline, is 1-800-932-0313.
People who come into contact with chil-
dren in the course of employment, occupa-
tion or practice of a profession are mandated
reporters, so named because they are re-
quired to report.
The law says that when a mandated re-
porter has reasonable cause to suspect, on
the basis of medical, professional or other
training and experience, that a child with
whom they work is a victim of child abuse, a
report to ChildLine must be made immedi-
ately. This applies to children under the care,
supervision, guidance or training of the
mandated reporter or of the agency, institu-
tion, organization or other entity with which
the mandated reporter is affiliated.
Mandated reporters who work in an in-
stitution, school, facility or agency must
immediately notify the person in charge of
that entity or that persons designated agent
of the suspected abuse. The person in charge
or the designee has the responsibility and
obligation to contact ChildLine immediately.
It is important to note that the person in
charge or the designee may not make an
independent determination of whether to
report. He or she must.
Afterward, the person in charge or the
designee is supposed to notify the mandated
reporter that the report has been made.
Organizations should have a policy in
place to ensure that all employees are aware
of this protocol.
To say that the Freeh report on Penn State
Universitys handling of Sanduskys sexual
abuse of children was disturbing is an under-
statement. So much effort seemingly went
into protecting the reputation of the abuser
and the university. So little regard apparently
was given to the children.
Deciding to report suspected child abuse
and neglect can be a difficult decision. As
horrible as that case was, it was only the tip
of the iceberg. You need to know that in
2011, there were 3,408 substantiated cases of
child abuse in Pennsylvania. Those cases
resulted in 4,071 injuries to children. And 34
child deaths.
At the end of the day we can only hope
that everyone does his or her part to make
sure that the needs of children are placed
above the needs of adults. We can only hope
that our communities are comprised of resi-
dents who pay attention to the safety and
well-being of children and feel empowered
and adequately prepared to report suspected
child abuse and neglect.
If youre still not sure about how or what
to do, call us, the Pennsylvania Family Sup-
port Alliance, at 1-800-448-4906.
Angela Liddle is executive director of the Penn-
sylvania Family Support Alliance, a nonprofit agen-
cy that annually trains more than 8,000 mandated
reporters in how to recognize and report suspected
child abuse.

COMMENTARY
A N G E L A L I D D L E
H
OW ARE WE going
to pay to care for the
elderly? We need
fresh ideas and prag-
matic answers from the candi-
dates running for U.S. president
andfor Congressasweget ready
to vote in the Nov. 6 election.
Health care reform was a ma-
jor point of contention in 2008,
and remains so for 2012.
In this campaign season,
though, debateonhealthcareal-
so encompasses the future of
Medicare and Medicaid. For
Erie residents, there is good rea-
son to pay attention to where
the candidates stand on how to
secure these programs. As Da-
vid Bruce and Lindsey Poisson
reported in a five-part series,
Growing Older in Erie Coun-
ty, the number of aging baby
boomers will explode in the
next two decades, and the frail
old, generally those 85 and ol-
der, will need lots of help be-
cause of chronic illnesses.
FactCheck.org recently re-
ported: Medicare consumes an
ever-larger share of the nations
entire economy. Federal spend-
ing on Medicare (not counting
the portion paid by premiums
that seniors pay) now amounts
to 3.1 percent of U.S. gross do-
mestic product. And thats ex-
pected to rise to 5.5 percent in
the next 25 years, according to
the most recent long-term bud-
get projection by the nonparti-
san Congressional Budget Of-
fice, using its alternative fiscal
assumptions.
FactCheck analyzed ads by
Mitt Romney and President Ba-
rack Obama, finding fault with
both candidates in what the or-
ganizationcalledacampaignof

Voters dont deservescaretac-
tics. Instead, we want frank dis-
cussions about the costs and
benefits of the existing pro-
grams and proposed alterna-
tives.

T
HE NEWS LAST
week that unemploy-
ment dropped to 7.8
percent prompted a
form of schizophrenia among
some conservatives who as-
serted that the numbers we-
rent that good, and also that
they had been fabricated to
help President Obama.
Former GE chairman Jack
Welch claimed Oba-
mas teamhadsome-
how cooked the
books. His proof?
Welch said he talks
with a lot of busi-
ness leaders, and
they tell him they
arent hiring.
Turns out theres
a reason for that.
There are two sur-
veys that contribute
to a jobs report like last Fri-
days. One includes business-
es, the kind of people with
whom Welch talks. It showed
meager growth, 114,000 sec-
tor jobs, in line with an econo-
my thats slogging along.
The other is a survey of
households, the kind of peo-
ple with whom Welch does
not talk, unless they are 20-
bedroom households. The
good news: This one showed
more people looking for work,
a good sign, and more people
finding work. The bad news:
It was mostly part-time work.
Conservatives are right to
question the strength of the
recovery in the private sector.
The jobs generated are barely
enough to keep the tepid re-
covery above water. Jobs are
concentrated in low-wage ar-
eas suchas retail andhospital-
ity, or the bottom rungs of
health care.
This is part of a bigger,
knottier picture: Many econo-
mists no longer believe our
slowgrowth and sticky unem-
ployment prob-
lem are part of a
business cycle.
They believe we
have major struc-
tural problems in
our economy
obstacles that
will make it
tougher to add
jobs down the
road, and that
will keep the
number of unemployed and
underemployed at 23 million,
unacceptably high.
Take start-ups, traditionally
the real engine of job growth.
Todays start-ups do not want
or need as many new employ-
ees. In todays highly techno-
logical and cloud-based
world, entrepreneurs can
keep overhead extremely low.
Our problems are new, and
vexing, and our presidential
candidates have offered little
creative thinking here. Old
ideas about tax cuts, train-
ing, trade deals dont match
up with our new problems.

ters tothe chief executive officers
of Remington Arms Co., Colt
Manufacturing Co. and Kimber
Manufacturing Inc. detailing the
benefits of a move to Northeast-
ern Pennsylvania. Remington
and Kimber have factories in
New York, and Colt has a factory
in Connecticut.
Mullery, 42, said New York
lawmakers have proposed a form
of ballistics identification called
microstamping for all semi-au-
tomatic pistols sold in the state,
as well as limiting gun sales to
one per person per month and re-
quiring background checks for
anyone purchasing ammunition.
Microstamping uses lasers to
engrave a marking of the make,
model and serial number on the
tip of a guns firing pin, which im-
prints that information on spent
cartridge cases.
Inresponsetotheproposal, Re-
mingtonhas saidit wouldconsid-
er movingits factory inIlion, N.Y.
to another state rather than
spend large sums of money to re-
configure it. The factory employs
about 1,000 people.
Kimber, which has a factory in
Yonkers, said a microstamping
law would force it to lay off em-
ployees, Mullery said, adding his
research found Colt has said it
would leave Connecticut if legis-
lators there approve microstamp-
ing legislation.
Mullery, who is
a gun owner, out-
doorsman and
member of the Na-
tional Rifle Associ-
ation, said the
companies would
be welcomed in
Northeastern
Pennsylvania.
Messages left
with the companies were not re-
turned Thursday.
I reviewed Pennsylvanias gun
regulations and found that our
state matched the profile sought
by these manufacturers, he said.
Given our geographic proximity
to New York and Connecticut,
our wealth of hard-working citi-
zens, andour richgunandsports-
man history, I decided to reach
out to these companies.
Reaching out
Mullery plans to reach out to lo-
cal business development organi-
zations to join in his efforts. He al-
so encourages residents to contact
the companies and express that
they are welcome in our region.
I certainly cannot do this
alone, he said.
Bill Moore, president/CEO at
the Greater Wilkes-Barre Cham-
ber of Business andIndustry, said
his organization will work with
any legislator who identifies a
company looking to relocate.
We certainly have the availa-
bility of land, plenty of industrial
parks and a quality workforce to
offer, Moore said. We would
welcome with open arms any
company seriously considering
locating here.
Moore, who still commutes
from his home in Connecticut,
said the climate there for eco-
nomic development is not par-
ticularly good. He said Pennsyl-
vania has a lot of advantages over
Connecticut.
According to the Tax Founda-
tions 2013 edition of the State
Business Tax Climate Index,
Pennsylvania was given an over-
all ranking of 19 out of 50 states,
while Connecticut was 40th and
New York 50th, Moore said.
In his letter to the gunmakers,
Mullery wrote: Over the years,
the Pennsylvania General As-
sembly has worked hard to elim-
inate burdensome regulations,
lower taxes and reform workers
compensation.
Mullery noted that DCED
helps businesses relocate and ex-
pand with financial assistance
and technological support. And
partnerships between state gov-
ernment, universities and busi-
nesses helpensure there are qual-
ified employees. He also remind-
ed the gun manufacturers that
Pennsylvania has 1.5 million
acres of state gamelands for wild-
life habitat and hunting.
In short, there is a huge mar-
ket for gun manufacturers and re-
tailers in Northeastern Pennsyl-
vania, Mullery wrote.
Mullery said he will follow up
his letters with phone calls this
week to see what interest the
companies have in talking to him
about relocating.

Theres been some tough
times and theyre getting tough-
er, he said. Its not anybodys
fault. Its the recession. Its the
economy and were doing the
best we can.
He has asked the citys nearly
300 employees to take voluntary
six-week furloughs starting next
month and lasting to the end of
the year as a way to ease the bur-
den of revenue shortfalls in the
citys $44.8 million budget for
this year. The crisis has been
compounded by the wait for an
estimated $1.2 million in earned
income taxes not yet distributed
to the city because of a problem
with the collection company.
The employees have until the
end of the month to respond to
the mayors request. By then,
hell have presented his budget
for next year. Hes scheduled to
release it on Monday and has not
hinted at what it entails.
As bad as the citys situation is,
others are in worse shape, he
said, pointing to nearby Ply-
mouth Township and Scranton,
which have been declared dis-
tressed, and bankrupt Harris-
burg, the state capitol.
Still, he left employees to
choose between them taking ac-
tion or the city deciding what to
do.
Were getting great coopera-
tion from our union leadership
and were hoping that we get it
from the members, he said.
And if we dont, you will see
some serious cuts; some depart-
ments more than others.
His comments overshadowed
councils work, including its ap-
proval of the transfer of a restau-
rant liquor license to Januzzis
Pizza and Subs on East North-
ampton Street from Wyoming.
Whenaskedtotake the leadfor
city employees to follow, Leight-
on told Karen Ceppa-Hirko he
would not take a pay cut even
though he has a job outside city
hall as a realtor.
Well, technically, by not tak-
ing my pay raise that Imentitled
to and by showing leadership, I
take a pay cut, he said.
For the past six years, his sala-
ry has been $79,911. In addition,
he has had to make health insur-
ance co-payments just like the
other city employees.
Weve cut and cut and cut to
bare bones, and we have to cut
more, Leighton said. Some
cuts are going to be very severe
andsome departments will be hit
very hard.
If the city was serious about
cutting expenses it shouldcut ad-
ministrative staff, said Linda Ur-
ban.
I believe Drew McLaughlin
needs to be terminated. We do
not need your services, she said,
adding City Administrator Marie
McCormick can do his job as as-
sistant to the mayor and
McLaughlins pay can go toward
another firefighter or police offi-
cer
Urban suggested getting rid of
one of the two city attorneys and
questioned what council mem-
bers did to earn $350 a week.
If you want to save money,
then you need to look at your-
selves. Dont look at the police.
Dont look at the fire. You are
overpaid, spoiled, absolutely
spoiled, she said.
The shooting of a police officer
in the Sherman Hills high-rise
apartment last Friday raised
questions about safety of the pri-
vately owned complex.
Urban said the owner should
provide 24-hour security and in-
stall gates to keep out people oth-
er than residents.

Crash of official city car probed
By TERRIE MORGAN-BESECKER

Ryan sparred repeatedly on do-
mestic policies such as Medicare
and taxes, as well as foreign pol-
icyquestionssuchastheattackin
Libya that led to the deaths of
four Americans, including the
U.S. ambassador.
Most coveredthesameground
as Obama and Romney. It was in
their personal exchanges that
they shed new light on the two
major party tickets and their pol-
icies.
Both Irish Roman Catholics,
BidenandRyanspoke about how
their religion drives their differ-
ent positions on abortion.
"Our faith informs us in every
thing we do," Ryan said. He add-
edthat science alsoplays a role in
his opposition to abortion rights
in most cases, saying he and his
wife were touched by the ultra-
sound image of their unborn first
child.
While he himself favors more
limits, he said Romneys policy
would be to oppose abortion ex-
cept in cases of rape, incest or to
save the life of the mother.
He criticized the Obama ad-
ministration for supporting abor-
tion rights without any limits,
and Biden for saying once he
would not second-guess Chinas
one-child policy that can lead to
forced abortion.
"My religion defines who I
am," Biden said, stressing both
his churchs caringfor the poor as
well as its belief that life begins at
conception.
"Catholic social doctrine talks
about taking care of those who
cant take care of themselves," Bi-
den said.
While Biden said he shares the
belief that life begins at concep-
tion, he said that was personal.
"I refusetoimposeit onequally
devout Christians and Muslims
and Jews," he said. "I dont be-
lieve we have the right to tell
women they cant control their
lives."
At another point, Ryan saluted
Bidens son, Beau, for serving in
the military. Biden noted at an-
other that he experienced trage-
dy when his first wife and daugh-
ter were killed in an auto acci-
dent.
In one of the more personal ex-
changes, Ryan told how Romney
helpedafamilyhit byinjuries pay
for college, and how he gives
more than 30 percent of his in-
come to charity more than Bi-
den and Ryan combined.
"Mitt Romney is a good man,"
Ryan said.
Referring to the criticism of
Romneys secretly taped com-
ments disparaging 47 percent of
Americans as freeloaders, Ryan
said, "He cares about 100 percent
of the Americans."
Noting Bidens own tendency
for gaffes, Ryanjokedthat "some-
timesthewordsdont comeout of
your mouth the right way."
"I dont doubt his personal
commitment to individuals," Bi-
den said. "But I know he had no
commitment to the automobile
industry."
Romney opposed the govern-
ment bailout of Chrysler and
General Motors. Both automak-
ers are now on firmer financial
ground.
Biden was animated through-
out the debate, at turns smiling
and laughing, as well as grimac-
inginresponse toRyans answers
to Raddatzs questions. The vice
president interrupted which
he did repeatedly as Ryan crit-
icized the administrations Mid-
dle East policy.
"Thats a bunch of malarkey,"
Biden said, subsequently sug-
gesting that Ryans remarks were
"a bunch of stuff."
Ryan challenged the Obama
administrations first accounts of
the Libya attacks, which at first
claimed that an anti-Muslim vid-
eo inflamed a crowd rather than
calling it a terrorist attack. He
notedthat President BarackOba-
mareferredtothevideosixtimes
ina speechto the UnitedNations
after the Libya attack.
Biden defended the adminis-
trations response, sayingit relied
on intelligence reports that turn-
ed out to be false. "We will get to
the bottomof it," he said.
They tangled on Iran, with
Ryanchargingthat Iranis "racing
toward" developing nuclear
weapons andthat theadministra-
tion dragged its feet to impose
sanctions it nowsays areworking
to deter the regime. "When Ba-
rack Obama was elected, they
had enough nuclear material to
make one bomb. Now they have
enough for five," Ryan said.
Biden accused Republicans of
"bluster" and "loose talk," and
asked Ryan what else could be
done beyond the "most crippling
sanctions in the history of sanc-
tions." He asked whether Ryan
was saying that hed back a war
with Iran.
"Howaretheygoingtoprevent
war if theres nothing more they
say we should do than weve al-
ready done," Biden said. "We feel
quite confident we could deal a
serious blowto the Iranians."

Coughlins playoff fate will come
down to its final two games under one
condition.
The Crusaders need to take care of
things in their next two games, starting
with Pittston Area at 7 p.m. today at
Wilkes-Barre Memorial Stadium.
Thats been every week. We havent
at all looked ahead and were not going
to start now, Coughlin coach Ciro Cinti
said. The only thing were concentrat-
ing on is Pittston at this point because
thats all that matters at this point.
Alot of things are going to come into
play in the next four weeks. Thats not
just inour league, but intheLackawanna
league, too. A lot of things are going to
happen.
Coughlin went through that the last
three years. Close losses over the second
half of those three seasons put the Cru-
saders in the Eastern Conference play-
offs over the preferred District 2 Class
3A tournament.
So thats why Pittston Area and Poco-
no Mountain East another opponent
that can cause trouble are important
games before finishing with Berwick
(5-1) and Crestwood (5-1).
While Coughlin (4-2) has won four of
the last five meetings with Pittston Area
(2-4), none of the victories have come
easily. Included in the bunch was the
longest game inWyomingValley Confer-
ence history a six-overtime 44-43victo-
ry by Pittston Area in 2008.

out loss of the season, a 35-0 setback to

The Holy Redeemer duo
seemedat ease onthe Kirby Park
tennis courts Thursday, joining
Wyoming Seminarys Anita
Ghosh and Madison Nardone as
the Wyoming Valley Confer-
ences qualifiers to the District 2
Class 2A doubles semifinals.
Boich and Chmil staved off a
late charge by Valley Views
Joelle Kaszuba and Brittney
Mecca to advance with a 6-3, 6-3
victory. The final two rounds are
slated for 1 p.m. Monday at ei-
ther Kirby Park or Kingston Ten-

After dropping the first game
of the second set, the Royal pair
won five consecutive games to
go ahead 5-1. The Valley View
group flustered the Royals,
claiming two straight before
Boich misdirected a match-
clinching shot at the net.
It was frustrating but you al-
ways have to stay calm, think
about fundamentals especially
in the last set, Boich said. I was
able to get my game back.
They held control of the lead
throughout the first set. Boich
iced the set with a lifted shot
over Kaszubas racket.
I love doubles, the two said
in unison. Its a lot of fun.
Part of thepairs success insys-
tematically dismantling the

KINGSTON Wyoming Valley
West seems to find new heroes
every game.
The Spartans defeated Wyom-
ing Seminary onTuesday withan
overtime goal from Maura Anis-
transki.
Thursday, Valley West used a
Casey Dolan goal with 20 min-
utes remainingtoget past Hones-
dale 3-2 in WVC field hockey.
The Spartans (9-4) clicked per-
fectly on a pair
of perfect passes
to get the ball to
Dolan, a senior,
who scored her
eighth goal of
the season.
I just had to
stay composed,
Dolan said. It was a great pass
from Kady (Gurtis). I just had to
finish it off.
Danielle Grega snuffed out an
outlet pass by Honesdale (7-6)
and brought the ball into the cir-
cle along the right wing. She
passed back to Gurtis near the
top of the circle, who quickly di-
rected a pass across the goal
mouth to an open Dolan.
BothKady andJulia (Usefara)
have stepped up (their games) a
lot, Dolansaidof a pair of young-
er players who have beencontrib-
uting for the Spartans. Theyve
become a big part of the team,
helpinginthe midfieldanddefen-

The teams combined to score
on the first three shots of the
game. Honesdale took the lead
on a corner, with Sam Krempas-
ky scoring for a second consecu-
tive game. Valley West came

NEW YORK Baltimores
bullpen escaped a two-on jam
with no outs in the eighth as
Alex Rodriguez struck out yet
again, and the Orioles and
New York Yankees were tied
at 1 after 11 innings Wednes-
day night in Game 4 of their
AL division series.
Baltimores Nate McLouth
homered and made a leaping
catchagainst the left-fieldwall
to save run, and Robinson Ca-
no hit an RBI groundout.
With the Yankees leading
the best-of-five series 2-1, the
Orioles were trying tried to
stave off elimination. A Balti-
more win would force a Game
5 on Friday night and push all
four division series to the
maximum for the first time.
New York had a runner in
each of the first eight innings
and threatened to take the
lead in the eighth. Singles by
Ichiro Suzuki and Mark Teix-
eira off Luis Ayala put two on
with no outs, and Canos
grounder to second against
Brian Matusz advanced the
runners.
Side-arming right-hander
Darren ODay relieved and
struck out Rodriguez on four
pitches A-Rod is 2 for 17
(.117) with no RBIs and nine
strikeouts in the series. Nick
Swisher flied weakly to right,
falling to 1 for 34 (.029) with
runners in scoring position in
his postseason career.
Both bullpens pitched
scoreless ball, with Baltimore
allowing three hits over 5 1-3
scoreless innings and the Yan-
kees giving up one hit over 4
1-3 innings.

By ROXY ROXBOROUGH
CIRCULAR REPORT: On the college football board, the Tulane - SMU circle is for
Tulane QB Ryan Griffin (probable); the Nevada - UNLV circle is for Nevada QB
Cody Fajardo (questionable).
On the college football board, there is no line on the Oregon State - BYU game due
to Oregon State QB Sean Mannion (out), back-up QB Cody Vaz should get the
start.
NO LINE REPORT: On the NFL board, there is no line on the Redskins - Vikings
game due to Washington QB Robert Griffin III (questionable).
Arecent look at the drivers standings has George Napolitano abso-
lutely dominating the competition. Napolitano (who has 286 tallies)
is 111wins ahead of his nearest rival; last years champ Matt Kakaley.
Tyler Buter checks in third, with 140 victories. Those top three driv-
ers look to be all about locked in to those respective positions.
On the trainers side its a very tight race, with Chris Oakes main-
taining a two race lead over the hot Ron Burke. Oakes has 68 Kodak
moments this season, with Burke on his heels the whole way. It looks
like a two-horse race right to the wire, should make for an interesting
last month of racing for sure.

CINCINNATI Not just any
comeback would get San Fran-
cisco back to playing for a pen-
nant. It would take one of Giant
proportions.
And Buster Posey believed it
could happen. Even after the Gi-
ants left the West Coast down
two games, the National League
batting champion insisted his
teamcouldpull it off, despitethe
long odds.
With one swing, he got every-
one else believing it, too.
Posey hit the thirdgrandslam
in Giants postseason history on
Thursday, and San Francisco
pulled off an unprecedented re-
vival, moving into the cham-
pionshipserieswitha6-4victory
over the Cincinnati Reds.
Youdont want tobeinalose-
and-youre-out scenario, reliev-
er JeremyAffeldt said, wearinga
braceonhisleftwristsohedidnt
hurt it in the champagne-fla-
vored clubhouse celebration.
Weve been in that situation for
threedays. Wereprobablygoing
to sleep well tonight.
Theyll play either Washing-
ton or St. Louis for the NL pen-
nant starting Sunday, not caring
at all who they face.
We could go up against any-
body at any time, shortstop
Brandon Crawford said. Being
down 2-0 and coming back and
winning three at their place, its
anunbelievable feeling.
The Giants became the first
NL team to overcome a 2-0 defi-
cit in the division series, which
began in 1995. Major League
Baseballs changed playoff for-
mat this season allowed themto
becomethefirst totakeabest-of-
five by winning the last three on
the road.
Poseys second career grand
slam off Mat Latos put the Gi-
ants up 6-0 in the fifth and
sparked a joyous scrum in the
San Francisco dugout. The ball
smacked off the front of the up-
per deck in left field, just above
Latos name onthe video board.
For the first time in the series,
the Giants couldexhale.
I dont think anybody gave
up, Posey said.
Will Clark, in the 1989 NLCS,
and Chuck Hiller, in the 1962
World Series, hit the other Gi-
ants slams inthe postseason.
Matt Cain and the bullpen
heldon, withmorehelpfromPo-
sey. The All-Star catcher threw
out Jay Bruce at third base to
snuff out asixth-inningrallythat
cut it to 6-3. The Giants had a
pair of diving catches that pre-
servedthe leadinthe eighth.
There was more drama in the
ninth. Ryan Ludwick singled
home a run off Sergio Romo.
With two runners aboard, Romo
fannedScott Rolento endit.
The Giants raised their arms,
hugged and huddled by the side
of the mound, bouncing in uni-
son.
It was a spectacular mo-
ment, outfielder Hunter Pence
said.
In Cincinnati, the home-field
meltdown had a sickeningly fa-
miliar feeling. The Reds havent
won a home playoff game in 17
years. After taking the first two
onthe West Coast, all theyneed-
edwas onemoreat home, where
they hadnt dropped three
straight all season.
You get tired of the disap-
pointments, but then you get
over it, manager Dusty Baker
said. It hurts big-time.
Once Posey connected, the
Reds were the ones facing a
steep comeback. Theyve never
overcome a six-run deficit in the
playoffs, according to STATS
LLC.
Couldnt doit thistime, either.
Buster Poseys swing was a
series-changer, said Reds star
Joey Votto, standing on second
base when the game ended.
That made it very difficult to
comeback. Youknowtheyrego-
ing to throw the kitchen sink at
us.
The Giants never trailed in
any of their three postseason se-
ries whenthey wonit all in2010.
They beat the Braves 3-1 in the
division series, knocked out the
Phillies 4-2 for the NL title, then
took four of five from Texas for
their sixthWorldSeries titleand
their first sincetheymovedfrom
New York to San Francisco in
1958.
They really had to scramble
thisseasontoget another shot at
it.
The bullpen took a huge hit
when closer Brian Wilson blew
out his elbow, and that was just
the start. All-Star game MVP
Melky Cabrera got a 50-game
suspensioninAugust after apos-
itive testosterone test, taking a
.346 hitter out of their lineup.
The Giants have decided not to
bringhimback, eventhoughhes
eligible to return for the NL
championship series.

WASHINGTON The Wash-
ington Nationals signed Jayson
Werth to show them how to win.
His game-ending homer Thurs-
day night extended their surpris-
ing season.
Werth led off the bottom of the
ninth inning by driving Lance
Lynns13thpitch
into the left-field
stands to give
the Nationals a
2-1 victory over
the defending
World Series
champion St.
Louis Cardinals
and force a
Game 5 in their
NL division se-
ries.
As he circled
the bases, Werth
raised his right
index finger in a
No. 1 gesture,
while the an-
nounced crowd
of 44,392 roared. The other Na-
tionals raced out of the dugout to
greet Werth, who tossed his red
batting helmet high in the air be-
fore jumping on home plate and
being enveloped by a bouncing
collection of thrilled teammates.
The best-of-five series will end
tonight in Washington, with the
winner advancing to face the San
Francisco Giants in the NL cham-
pionship series. The starters will
provide a rematch of Game 1,
which Washington won, with Gio
Gonzalez on the mound for the
Nationals and Adam Wainwright
for the Cardinals.
It will be a lot like today. Its
what its all about. Its what you
play all season for and what you
work out all winter for and what
you get to spring training early
for, Werth said. We have a
chancetomorrowtotakethat next
step. I knowmyteammateswill be
ready and the city will, too.
The homer was Werths first
with the Nationals but 14th of his
career in the postseason. He won
the 2008WorldSeries anda string
of divisiontitles withthe Philadel-
phia Phillies before moving to
Washington as a free agent before
last season on a $126 million con-
tract that stunned much of base-
ball.
He gets a ton of credit for help-
ing steer a quick turnaround: The
Nationals lost 100 games in 2008
and 2009, but led the majors with
98 wins and won their division
this year.
When I signed here, my first
day here, I went to a Capitals
game, a hockey game, (and) the
placewas packed. Somebodysaid,
Just a few short years ago, this
place was empty. So I knewthat a
winning ballclub would bring the
fans, Werth said, and here we
are, two years later and theyre
showing up and its awesome.

Tigers manager Jim Leyland
made one thing clear before
even touching on the topic of
tough postseason moves: Im
not going to pinch hit for Ca-
brera.
Nope, Triple Crown winner
Miguel Cabrera would be bat-
ting for the Tigers with the
season on the line, all right.
Even after Yankees manager
Joe Girardis switch to pinch-
hitter Raul Ibanez in place of
Alex Rodriguez paid off huge
with a stunning two-homer
night in Wednesdays 3-2, 12-
inning victory over the Balti-
more Orioles.
You have to be prepared for
everything. And you try to be
prepared for everything, Ley-
land said before Game 5 of the
AL division series in Oakland.
Leyland spent the afternoon
leading up to Thursdays game
watching baseball with his wife
at the team hotel. But he still
had plenty of thoughts about
two thrillers on each coast a
night earlier.
Ibanez hit a tying homer in
the bottom of the ninth and a
game-ending drive in the 12th.
So far its been a great post-
season, Leyland said. What
happened last night in New
York is mind-boggling.
Detroit led its best-of-five
division series 2-0 when it
arrived in Oakland, but lost the
next two. The As rallied for a
4-3 victory against closer Jose
Valverde on Wednesday in
another dramatic finish for the
low-budget club.
Leyland has seen it all in 21
years as a manager and knows
not to get too high or too low
at this stage.
I dont want to sound casual
about this kind of stuff be-
cause, dont get me wrong, the
game broke our heart, Ley-
land said. But at the same
time, you learn over the years
that, like I always use the ex-
pression, you cant chew yes-
terdays breakfast. The game is
over. They beat us. They
earned it.
TEDDY WINS AGAIN: Its
been a big couple of weeks for
Teddy Roosevelt.
First the 10-foot-tall foam
rendering of the ol Rough
Rider finally got to win the
Presidents Race mascot con-
test at Nationals Park. Now
one of his speeches was used
to fire up the Washington Na-
tionals before they went out
and forced a Game 5 in their
NL division series by beating
the defending champion St.
Louis Cardinals 2-1 Thursday.
Our backs were against the
wall. I wanted to say some-
thing that brought us together,
a band of brothers who go out
fighting and see what hap-
pens, said Mark DeRosa, the
veteran utility player who was
left off Washingtons playoff
roster but is a key presence in
the clubhouse.
He read from Roosevelts
Man in the Arena speech,
delivered in Paris in 1910,
which includes the lines: The
credit belongs to the man who
is actually in the arena, whose
face is marred by dust and
sweat and blood ... and who at
the worst, if he fails, at least
fails while daring greatly, so
that his place shall never be
with those cold and timid souls
who neither know victory nor
defeat.
DeRosa used the karaoke
machine he often speaks
through to kid around with
teammates before games,
sprinkling his speech with
swear words as players got
dressed Thursday.
REMOTE CHANCE: Orioles
left fielder Nate McLouth had
no problem avoiding the con-
stant TV replays of Raul Iba-
nezs two homers that led the
Yankees to a 3-2, 12-inning
victory in Game 3.
His wife was with him in
New York.
When his wife traveled with
the team, McLouth has little
chance at watching sports
recap shows.
I can promise you were not
watching many highlights after
the game, unless they show
them on the Food Network,
McLouth said.
McLouth has a team-high
four hits in 13 at-bats in the
postseason entering Game 4
but he doesnt get control of
the remote in the hotel.
SHIFTING SPOTS: Oak-
lands Josh Donaldson looked
like a natural third baseman
when he dived into foul territo-
ry to rob Detroits Jhonny
Peralta of a hit late in Game 4
of their AL division series.
Yet Donaldson, a catcher by
trade, had never played third
base in the majors until this
season but has excelled there
for the Athletics since being
recalled from the minors in
August.
Josh Donaldson is a great
athlete, manager Bob Melvin
said. His position is catcher,
but he could probably play
anywhere on the diamond. Hes
a football player, baseball play-
er, truly a guy that could prob-
ably play anywhere on the
diamond. Were lucky to have
those athletes.

(3-3)
at
Hazleton Area
(1-5)
7 p.m. today
The Coaches: Dallas Bob Zaruta (3-3, 1st year); Hazleton Areas Jim Drumheller (5-11, 2nd
year)
Last Meeting: Hazleton Area 29-28 in 2001
All-Time Series: Tied 1-1
Quick Fact: Dallas win in the series was a 23-15 in 2000.
Scouting Dallas: The Mountaineers start a three-game road segment riding a three-
game winning streak. They handled Pittston Area 35-0 last Saturday. It was their first shutout
since a 9-0 victory over Crestwood in 2008, a span of 44 games.
The defense surrendered just 4 yards rushing and has allowed 2.2 yards per carry during the
winning streak. On offense, QB Ryan Zapoticky has thrown seven of his 11 TDs passes in the last
two games. RB Kris Roccograndis numbers have improved dramatically as well. Much of the
credit goes to the line, which has improved greatly after a rough start.
Scouting Hazleton Area: The Hazleton Area team that went into the locker room at
halftime last Friday wasnt the same that came out. The Cougars led 13-7 at the break, moving
the ball well with RBs Zach Zukoski and Jeff Fendrick doing a nice job. Yet, they ended up losing
33-13 to Crestwood as the final two quarters were flat on both sides of the ball.
QB Julius Ward had solid numbers on paper, completing 17 of 27 for 153 yards. But most of
the completions were of the dink-and-dunk type. The passing game has no TDs this season and
just two in the last 14 games.
What To Expect: If Hazleton Area plays like it did in the first half vs. Crestwood, it could
get interesting. If the Cougars dont, then it wont be.

GAR
(4-2)
at
Hanover Area
(0-6)
7 p.m. today
The Coaches: GARs Paul Wiedlich Jr. (26-6, 3rd year); Hanover Areas Ron Hummer
(34-39, 7th year)
Last Meeting: GAR 53-20 in 2011
All-Time Series: GAR leads 50-28-5
Quick Fact: GAR has won the last eight meetings in a series that goes back to 1926.
Scouting GAR: The Grenadiers 35-26 victory over Lake-Lehman vaulted them into a
second-place tie in the District 2 Class 2A standings and only 10 points behind Lehman. It came
via air sort of.
QB Corey Moore threw 47 times, completing 23 for 293 yards. But it was more of a short-
passing game where GAR got the ball to guys who can get yards after the catch. WRs Lucas
Benton (9 rec., 108 yds.) and Jamaar Taylor (6-92) had big games.
The defense was solid against the run, especially in the second half.
Scouting Hanover Area: A tough season got a little tougher in a 34-7 loss to Meyers
last Friday. The Hawkeyes had their top-two rushers Brian Belcher and Dillon Ropietski
injured in the first half. YaSir Jones came in and gained 61 yards, but it took him 21 rushes. A
positive note was Hanover Area had just one turnover after having three in each of its previ-
ous three games.
The Hawkeyes gave up points via pass, run and special teams and are surrendering 40.7
points per game.
What To Expect: GAR is hitting its stride while Hanover Area is hitting the trainers
room. It doesnt make for a pleasant picture tonight.

Lake-Lehman
(4-2)
at
Northwest
(4-2)
7 p.m. today
The Coaches: Lehmans Jerry Gilsky (17-10, 3rd year); Northwests Carl Majer (33-18, 5th
year)
Last Meeting: Lehman 35-7 in 2011
All-Time Series: Lehman leads 24-10-3
Quick Fact: Lehman has won 17 of the last 18 meetings.
Scouting Lehman: The Black Knights had their four-game winning streak snapped by
GAR 35-26 last Saturday. Until the loss, they had won nine of their last 12 games.
The run defense surrendered just 29 yards, but GAR was able to pick apart the unit with
short-to-intermediate passes for 293 yards. The secondary has been thrown at 91 times the last
three games.
RB Dustin Jones had 88 hard-earned yards running up the gut, but the perimeter attack was
lacking. Lehman threw a season-high 21 with little production. Big guy Pete Borum had a strong
game on both side of the ball.
Scouting Northwest: Lehman is the first of three tough WVC teams for Northwest. The
Rangers will need to win at least two of them for a 67 chance to make the District 2 Class A
playoffs.
Northwest road Tony Politz to a 45-7 victory over Nanticoke. He rushed for 225 yards and
three TDs, becoming the first WVC back to 1,000 yards. QB Marcus Welliver chipped in on the
ground. Special teams scored a second TD this season when Kenny Jones jumped on a blocked
punt.
What To Expect: Its only week 7 and its Northwests last home game of the regular
season. So the Rangers will be pumped up. But so will Lehman after last weeks loss.
-- John Erzar
Meyers
(3-3)
at
Wyoming Area
(4-2)
7 p.m. today
The Coaches: Meyers Corry Hanson (6-10, 2nd year); Wyoming Areas Randy Spencer
(25-24, 5th year)
Last Meeting: Wyoming Area 44-17 in 2011
All-Time Series: Wyoming Area leads 22-8
Quick Fact: Wyoming Area has won the last nine meetings dating back to 1995.
Scouting Meyers: Meyers overwhelmed an undermanned Hanover Area squad 34-7 last
Friday. RB Parrish Bennett rushed for 61 yards, his best effort since gaining 100 against Lacka-
wanna Trail week 3. But he had been dealing with a hamstring issue.
WR Matt DeMarco continued to add to his impressive season with touchdowns via run, pass
and punt return. QB Teaguen Labatch bounced back well after a rough outing two weeks ago at
Lake-Lehman.
Scouting Wyoming Area: Unlike two weeks ago against Nanticoke, Wyoming Area
wasted no time in trouncing Holy Redeemer 69-28. The Warriors surrendered a season high in
points, but two TDs came late in the game against reserves.
Obviously, QB/RB Nick OBrien makes the offense go. But QB Jordan Zezza threw three
touchdowns, FB Jeff Skursky returned to the running game and WR Cody Schmitz continues to
impress as a kick/punt returner.
What To Expect: Meyers has the skill guys to match up with Wyoming Area better than
its three previous opponents. Still, it probably wont be enough to pull off an upset.
-- John Erzar
Coughlin
(4-2)
at
Pittston Area
(2-4)
7 p.m. today
The Coaches: Coughlins Ciro Cinti (38-34, 7th year); Pittston Areas Mike Barrett (5-11, 2nd
year)
Last Meeting: Coughlin 27-14 in 2011
All-Time Series: Coughlin leads 25-18
Quick Fact: Coughlin has won six of the past eight meetings, including the last three.
Scouting Coughlin: The defense was stout once again as the Crusaders defeated
Williamsport 36-8. It has two shutouts this season and has allowed over 17 points just once. Its
stymied three consecutive opponents with quality running backs.
The offenses point total was the most since a 48-11 victory over Tunkhannock in week two
of 2011. After a couple tough weeks, the running game broke loose for 212 yards, with RB Zac
Evans getting 165. The Crusaders also have nice size up front with guys like Brad Emerick and
Aaron Tohme, and Pittston Area has struggled against bigger lines.
Scouting Pittston Area: The Patriots were shut out for a third time this season,
losing 35-0 at Dallas. The run offense netted 4 yards mainly because QB James Emmett was
sacked four times. Emmett had decent stats passing, but the Patriots never got a play needed
to sway the momentum when the game was still close.
What the Patriots did get was banged up as Dallas line dominated up front. They also
turned over the ball four times, equaling their season high which happened against Abington
Heights to start the season.
What To Expect: Coughlin has one of the WVCs best defenses and that with Pittston
Areas inconsistency on offense should mean a Crusaders victory.
-- John Erzar
Holy Redeemer
(1-5)
at
Nanticoke
(2-4)
7 p.m. today
The Coaches: Redeemers Pat Reece (1-5, 1st year); Nanticokes Ron Bruza (9-16, 3rd year)
Last Meeting: Nanticoke 52-36 in 2011
All-Time Series: Redeemer leads 3-2
Quick Fact: Redeemer averages 32 points per game in the series.
Scouting Redeemer: Redeemer has given up more points than any other WVC team the
past two weeks 134. The Royals lost 69-28 last Saturday to Wyoming Area in a game that was
decided midway through the second quarter.
QB Jimmy Strickland threw for 216 yards and has six TD passes in the last two games. That
could bode well since Nanticoke was torched by Meyers through the air three weeks ago. The
running game had 82 yards, its second-best output of the season.
Scouting Nanticoke: Things unraveled a little quicker last Friday than in previous
games with Meyers and Wyoming Area. The Trojans gave up 21 second-quarter points and didnt
recover in losing 45-7 to Northwest.
The offense failed to score as Nanticoke got its only points on a punt return by Pat Hempel.
The defense allowed over 300 yards rushing for a second consecutive game after being decent
through the first four weeks.
What To Expect: A hard game to figure out. Nanticoke took a step backward last Friday
after making progress. Do it again, and Redeemer could win another.
-- John Erzar
Tunkhannock
(1-5)
at
Wyoming Valley West
(3-3)
7 p.m. today
The Coaches: Tunkhannocks Rod Azar (2-14, 2nd year); Valley Wests Pat Keating (25-14,
4th year)
Last Meeting: Valley West 33-7 in 2003
All-Time Series: Valley West leads 14-7
Quick Fact: Tunkhannocks last win in the series was in 1993.
Scouting Tunkhannock: The Tigers were down 7-0 to Berwick last Friday with five
minutes left until halftime. They lost 49-0. The problem was the same that has cropped up at
times this season Tunkhannock gives up too many big plays. Berwicks next three TDs were a
55-yarder and a pair from 77 yards out.
Tunkhannock was shut out for the second time in its last three games and third time this
season. The run-first offense had its worst game, producing just 52 yards. WB Colton Coolbaugh
led the way with 18. The passing game managed just 17 more.
Scouting Valley West: The Spartans hopes for a berth in the Class 4A subregional
essentially ended last Friday with a 38-15 loss to Stroudsburg. Now, their only postseason hope
is the Eastern Conference tournament.
The schedule gets much easier here on out. Valley Wests first six opponents are a combined
29-7, the last four 4-20. The rushing offense hasnt done a lot the past two weeks, but that
should change. Tunkhannock allows 7.9 yards per rush.
What To Expect: Valley West to have a big game on both sides of the ball.
-- John Erzar
Williamsport
(0-6)
at
Berwick
(5-1)
7 p.m. today
The Coaches: Williamsports Kevin Choate (0-6, 1st year); Berwicks George Curry (418-90-5,
43rd year)
Last Meeting: Berwick 43-0 in 2011
All-Time Series: Berwick leads 18-7
Quick Fact: Berwick won the first meeting 14-0 in 1946.
Scouting Williamsport: A problem Choate mentioned in the preseason has continued
defense. The Millionaires fell 36-8 to Coughlin, which wasnt bad considering past efforts.
Theyve surrendered 40 or more points in six of their last eight games.
Sadiq Burkholder took over the QB position last week, the third guy to do so this season. He
is one of the top athletes in the WVC, but wasnt able to do much via pass or run. RB Devin
Miller was held in check once again, gaining just 45 yards.
Scouting Berwick: The Dawgs were in a bit of a tussle with Tunkhannock until hitting
big plays late in the second quarter and cruising to a 49-0 victory.
QB C.J. Curry tossed three TD passes, his first since week 3, on five completions. WR Jake
Pecorelli hauled in his sixth TD catch, while Andrew Force had two. RB Matt Cashman sealed the
game with a couple short touchdown runs, but had a season-low 12 carries for 65 yards.
What To Expect: Currys Berwick teams in the past would take an opponent like this and
stomp it quickly. It might take a little bit longer, like last week vs. Tunkhannock, but the Dawgs
will land a knockout.
-- John Erzar
Dallas. The Patriots have runhot
and cold this season, but Cinti is
concerned about getting the hot
version and for good reason.
They came very close to bump-
ingoff Crestwood, losing14-12af-
ter failing to convert a two-point
try in the final minute. They also
put upsomesolidstatisticsinvic-
toriesoverTunkhannockandHa-
zletonArea.
Plus, thePatriotshaveshowna
knack for the upset the past two
years. They defeated District 2
Class 4A champion Scranton in
the second week of last year and
upset playoff-bound Wyoming
Areaonthefinal weekof theregu-
lar season.
Cinti ranoff alistof PittstonAr-
easkill playersthat areaconcern,
starting with improving first-
year quarterback James Emmett
and including big-play receivers
Jordan Houseman and Joe Sta-
rinsky, hard runners Mark Ro-
manczukandJustinWilkandver-
satile multi-threat Kyle Gattuso.
There is also a pride factor as
well.
Its our rivalry, not Valley
West, Cinti said. I think Pitt-
ston is to be honest with you
morethananygame. Theschools
are very close to eachother. Alot
of these guys who play baseball
playonthesameLegionteam. So
there is a lot of camaraderie. The
kids know each other very well.
Its a heated game, theres no
doubt about it.
The biggest factor tonight
could be along the line. Brad
Emerick, an all-WVC selection
last year, leads a line that will
have a size advantage. Emerick
placed fifth at 285 pounds in the
Class 3A state wrestling tourna-
ment in March. Interior lineman
Aaron Tohme is also considered
one of the WVCs top blockers.
Also up front, the Crusaders
have Anthony Khalife, Jordan
Phillips, Pat PilchandNickScup-
ski. Meanwhile, Pittston Area
had its top lineman, 270-pound
Anthony Haughton, leave the
Dallas game early with an appar-
ent lower leg injury.

Crestwood
(5-1)
at
Pocono Mountain West
(2-4)
7 p.m. today
The Coaches: Crestwoods Greg Myers (46-45, 7th year); Wests Jim McCarroll (36-77, 11th
year)
Last Meeting: Crestwood 21-6 in 2011
All-Time Series: Crestwood leads 8-2
Quick Fact: Wests first victory in school history was a 19-7 win over Crestwood in 2002.
Scouting Crestwood: Crestwood played a terrific second half of football last Friday,
turning a 13-7 deficit into a 33-13 victory at Hazleton Area. RBs Frank Aigeldinger (153 yds.) and
Evan Callaghan (122) both went over 100 yards for the first time in their careers. It was also the
first time since week 2 of 2011 that the Comets had two backs run for 100 yards in the same
game. And that came against P.M. West. WR Kota Kishel recorded his third 100-yard receiving
game of the season.
The defense wasnt challenged much in the second half as Hazleton Area had only two
possessions. It did give up a season-high 153 yards passing, but many came on short throws that
didnt amount to much. It will see plenty of footballs in the air tonight.
Scouting West: The Panthers snapped a four-game losing streak, but it wasnt in impres-
sive fashion. They won 17-6 against Allentown Allen, one of the weakest Class 4A programs in
the state that has been blown out on a regular basis throughout the years. Allen allowed an
average of 42 points in its previous five games.
QB Jeff Krisiak has thrown the ball well out of a new spread formation offense. He set a
school record for passing yards in a game in the opener. McCarroll, a former Wyoming Valley
West assistant, has been Wests coach since the school was formed in 2002.
What To Expect: A win over a second consecutive Class 4A opponent would provide a
big boost for Crestwood in the District 2 Class 3A race. The Comets should get it.

of Scranton Prep.
Were going to have to play
our best; Prep is going to be
tough, Boichsaid. We cant get
ahead of ourselves, must stay fo-
cused, and not underestimate
ourselves.
Wyoming Valley Wests Chris-
ta Talpash and Devin Ryman
were the WVCs lone quarterfi-
nal participants at the Class 3A
level. Talpash and Ryman fell to
Williamsports Maggie Man-
chester and Amanda Hampton
6-3, 6-2.
I was happy with howwe per-
formed, Ryman said. We were
tired, but they were good. We
could have always played better
but we were okay.
Talpash and Ryman won a 2-
hour second-round matchup
against North Poconos Danielle
Fruehan and Julia Tofilska. The
Spartan crew climbed from a 4-1
hole in the third set to win 7-5.

PITTSBURGHBeanoCook,
the college football commentator
with an encyclopedic knowledge
of the sport he dearly loved, has
died.
The 81-year-old Boston native
had worked for
ESPN since
1986 and was
the sports infor-
mation director
at his alma ma-
ter, the Univer-
sity of Pitts-
burgh, from
1956 to 1966.
The school announced Thursday
that Cook haddiedinhis sleep.
Cook was a diabetic and his
health had been failing recently,
ashemadementioninhismostre-
cent blog post at www.bean-
cook.com.
Sorry to say that health issues
hit meat theworst timestart of
College Football Season, he
wrote in a post dated Oct. 1. Ev-
erything except recovery takes a
back-burner now. I wont say Ill
be back to the blog by a certain
date, as some businesses might
promise, but I dohopetoreturn
soon. Thanks for your support
and encouragement. Enjoy the
season! Beano
Born Carroll H. Cook, he grew
up in Pittsburgh before graduat-
ing from the university in 1954,
and was known for his love of the
college game and, in particular,
championing the cause of north-
eastern teams including Penn
StateandPitt beforeeitherschool
was a nationally knownpower.
Beano Cook was an American
original. His passion, depth and
breadthof knowledge, andhumor
were unique, ESPN host Chris
Fowler said. He was an invalu-
able early mentor to me and
friend. His imprint can still be
seenonGameDay eachweek.
Cook, like many in the busi-
ness, fell inlovewithsimplybeing
around the competition. With a
careerthattookhimsomanyplac-
es, it was hard not to get wrapped
up init.
Getting to know the athletes
really provided me with my fon-
dest memories, Cook once said.
That was the most fun.
He said his favorites from his
time working at Pitt were Mike
Ditka, who went on to become a
Pro Football Hall of Famer, and
basketball star DonHennon.
Hewasspecial,Ditkasaidina
statement. We became really
good friends the years I was in
school at Pitt. I dont know that
anybody loved that job and loved
Pitt more thanhe did.
His wealth of knowledge about
college football and memory for
details made him an irresistible
storyteller, as well a passionate
pundit.
He wasnt always right, but he
wasnt afraid to make bold pro-
nouncements, such as when he
predicted Notre Dame freshman
quarterback Ron Powlus would
win at least two Heisman tro-
phies. Powlus never even won
one, but Cooks prediction made
himfamous forever.
In recent years he was a fre-
quentcontributoronESPNRadio
and did a weekly podcast with
ESPNcollege football writer Ivan
Maisel.
He was one of a kind, ESPN
executive chairman George Bo-
denheimer said.

CONCORD, N.C. Greg
Biffle won the pole Thursday
night for Saturday nights race
at Charlotte Motor Speedway,
the first NASCAR Cup race
without an Earnhardt in 33
years.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. will sit out
the next two races after sustain-
ing his second concussion this
year during a 25-car car pileup
Sunday at Talladega. Regan
Smith, wholl drive Earnhardts
No. 88 Chevrolet, qualified
26th.
Its incredibly sad anytime
you have to have something
like this happen, especially
with how hard Dale has worked
to get into the Chase and be-
come a contender, said Mark
Martin, wholl start on the front
row alongside Biffle.
I saw his commitment to get
there and I feel really bad for
him.
The 53-year-old Martin will
make his 850th career start Sat-
urday night.
There were Earnhardts in
the races before I got here and
there have been ever since,
Martin said. Its a tough one
for our sport. On the positive
side, hell be back in two weeks.
And I prefer to look at the posi-
tive side. It could be worse.
Biffle couldnt have been bet-
ter.
He set a track record with a
lap of 193.708 mph in his No. 16
Ford to earn the pole for the
fifth race in NASCARs Chase
for the Sprint Cup champion-
ship.
He called the lap nerve rack-
ing and was cackling as he
crossed the line.
He said he had a perfect lap.
That is the fastest Ive been
around this race track, the fas-
test anyone has, I guess, Biffle
said. I couldnt believe the
speeds I was seeing. I knew it
was going to be tough to (break
the record) and I dug deep. I
knew it was going to be hard to
beat. These cars wont go much
faster.
It was Biffles 12th pole over-
all and third this year, but his
first ever at Charlotte. He hopes
it will give his team momen-
tum heading down the stretch.
Weve been down in the
dumps because we havent
started out the Chase very
well, Biffle said.
Biffle is ninth in the Cup
points race, 49 points behind
leader Brad Keselowski.

Wilkes top rival will always
be Kings for obvious reasons.
If theres another nemesis for
the Colonels thats fairly close
geographically and has been
around for decades it has to be
Lebanon Valley.
The Colonels and Flying
Dutchmen who are connect-
ed by just Interstate 81 first
met in 1953 and have played 39
games since then. The two will
renew acquaintances when
they meet for the 40th time 1
p.m. Saturday in Annville
The teams have identical re-
cords overall (3-2) and in the
MAC (2-2), making the game
more important because the
loser is likely out of contention
for the conference title and the
winner still in the hunt.
Add into the mix that the last
six contests in the rivalry have
been decided by a touchdown
or less with each team winning
three times, and this time
around should be another barn-
burner.
Theyre recruiting a lot up
here and we recruit a lot down
in District 3 area, so our Dis-
trict 3 kids are all juiced up to
make the trip down 81, Wilkes
coach Frank Sheptock said.
Both schools border the coal
region, so the kids run into
each other a lot. I think theres
so much knowledge of each
other and I think thats why you
see some of the increased in-
tensity and rivalryship because
of all of those reasons.
Records arent the only simi-
larities between these two
longtime MAC teams as both
have had success running the
ball this season. Seventeen dif-
ferent players have had at least
one rush for the Dutchmen,
combining for 903 yards and 13
touchdowns in six games.
Wilkes has had 12 different ball
carriers, but they have gone for
1,261 yards and 10 scores for a
MAC-leading 225.20 rushing
yards per game.
Aux Wogou, Wilkes leading
rusher with 352 yards and two
TDs, left last weeks game with
a knee injury and, according to
Sheptock, he is likely out for
the season.
Wogou will be replaced by
Calvin Garvin (191 yards, 3
TDs), Pat Inguilli (143, 2 TDs)
and Andrew Regan (151, 1 TD),
all of whom should see time.
Quarterbacks Alex George (200
yards) and Tyler Berntsen (110,
1 TD) could also get carries.
Thats a big blow to our
football team on the field as
well as in the locker room,
Sheptock said about Wogou.
We feel very capable with
those guys and our ability to
still move the ball efficiently on
the ground.

Wilkes heads south
to face Dutchmen
Wilkes
(3-2, 2-2 MAC)
at
Lebanon Valley
(3-2, 2-2)
When: 1 p.m. today at Arnold
Field, Annville
Last Meeting: The Dutchmen
won last year in comeback
fashion, 42-35.
Last week: Wilkes defeated
Misericordia 45-13, while the
Dutchmen are coming off a
bye.
About the Colonels: They
lead the MAC in rushing yards
per game with 252.20 and are
No. 20 in the nation in that
category.
About the Flying Dutchmen:
They are similar to the
Colonels in that both teams
run the ball a lot. The
Dutchmen, however, also use
a bruising fullback in Evan
Fink, who has scored eight of
the teams 13 touchdowns on
the ground.
Wilkes will win if the defense
can continue to play well like
it has over the last six
quarters and can slow down
the Dutchmens run attack.
Lebanon Valley will win if it
can break through Wilkes
strong defensive front and
linebackers for big runs
leading to scores.

Now, coach Guy Gadowsky
leads Penn State into the ice age,
as the Nittany Lions begin their
Division I era this weekend. After
a game today against American
International in State College,
Penn State comes to Mohegan
Sun Arena at Casey Plaza for the
secondgameinprogramhistory
again against the YellowJackets.
Froma teamstandpoint, it is a
lot of fun, Gadowsky said of get-
ting ready for the inaugural sea-
son Monday in a press confer-
ence. We know it will be a huge
step up. We understand that in
termsof thespeedandstrengthof
the athletes and even more the
speed of the game, the thinking
andit issomethingwewill haveto
work on every day at practice. It
will be a huge challenge for us the
entire year.
Gadowsky had been a success-
ful minor league coach for three
seasons when he took over the
Alaska-Fairbanks program in
1999. AfterturningFairbanksinto
a winner, he moved on to Prince-
ton, where he restored the Tigers
to glory.
In 12 years as a college coach,
he is 173-198-37. Gadowsky
moved on to Penn State in 2011,
and last season coached the club
team.
Last year was basically a year-
long tryout for those who wanted
to be with us when we were D-I,
Gadowsky said of the club team,
which provided all but 11 players
onthis seasons roster. There are
many upperclassmen who came
to Penn State because it is Penn
State andto play club hockey, but
now they get to play Division I.
There are 16 players from last
years teamwho are on this years
team.
The Nittany Lions will have a
neutral-site game in Philadelphia
on Jan. 19 against Vermont, and
will play in Robert Morris tour-
nament in Pittsburgh in late De-
cember. Theteamhasahandful of
exhibitions slated as well.
We are playing Union, which
made it to the Frozen Four last
year, Gadowskysaid. Wearego-
ing to Michigan State. We are go-
ing to Wisconsin. Those are the
top of the food chain. For us to do
that in our very first year is very
daunting.
American International is
coachedbyGaryWright, whohas
led the Yellow Jackets since Ga-
dowsky was in high school. Like
the Penn State bench boss,
Wright transitionedAIUuptothe
Division I level, posting a record
of 280-516-59 along the way in 29
seasons at the Springfield, Mass.,
school.
Tickets remain available
through Ticketmaster for Satur-
days game. All seats are $12 for
adults and $8 for children.

Coach John Hynes talked about injuries after Thursdays practice:
Rookie forward Jayson Megna, who collided with defenseman
Joey Mormina during Wednesdays practice, is day-to-day. Robert
Bortuzzo is still questionable for Saturday and a decision on his
status will be made today. Keven Veilleux is progressing and should
be ready to return this month or early November.
If Megna isnt ready for the season opener on Saturday, Hynes
said its possible someone will get called up from Wheeling.
With one day of practice left before the season opener at
Binghamton, Hynes said his line combinations and defensive
pairings should be set after todays practice.

Grega pickedupa misplayedball
in the circle and pumped it into
the Hornets goal.
Valley West took its first lead
as Megan Kane made a big play,
stopping a Honesdale break out
and keeping play inside the cir-
cle. Kane worked the ball to the
left and passed to Alex Gonda,
who slipped the ball to Anistran-
ski on the end line.
From the tough angle, Anis-
transki squeezed a shot between
goalie Nicole Cush and the post
for a 2-1 lead.
I actually expected it to be
that way, Honesdale coach Bec-
ca Maciejewski said. We have a
couple of seniors who started in
the 2009 district semifinal as
freshmen. Welost tothemintwo
overtimes and two rounds of
strokes. They hada little motiva-
tion.
Following the theme of the
game, Honesdale knotted the
score 2-2 in the 28th minute as
Krempasky forced a turnover
and connected with Mary Mar-
tin. The Hornets leading scorer
dished a nifty cross to Elyssa
Stanton, who had an open net to
shoot at.
We wanted to go for a better
spot in the playoffs, Maciejew-
ski said. This was an important
game for them, too, though. Ive
got to give the Valley West de-
fense credit. They are tough.
They stayed grounded with
their sticks. We had to switch
our style to get around them.
Honesdale owned the last sev-
enminutes of play, earningthree
of its 14 corners and keeping the
ball in Spartans territory. Valley
West keeper Jocelyn Polney
made two big saves to preserve
the win.

THE TIMES LEADER FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2012
timesleader.com
Takingits message tothe streets, or at
least the Cross Valley Expressway, Fron-
tier Communications is trying to sway
cable, Internet and phone subscribers to
leave Comcast and sign up with them.
Using a billboard that points out an
American Consumer Satisfaction Index
that rankedComcast fourthinthe top15
most dislikedcompanies inAmerica, the
billboard urges motorists to visit
www.nomorecomcast.com to learn
more. That site is owned and operated
by Frontier and brings people to a page
offering pricing plans and service op-
tions for Frontier services.
Robert Grove, a Comcast spokesman,
saidhewas unawareof thebillboardthat
went up Oct. 1, but the company typical-
lydoesnt comment onsuchmatters. His
response to the billboard and website
was: Comcast offers the fastest Internet
speeds andprides itself onreliabilityand
innovation.
Five cable companies and one phone
companywereincludedintheMayrank-
ings.
Under Comcasts write-up, the publi-
cation noted: Ever-unpopular media
conglomerate Comcast has beenblasted
for early withdrawals, faulty equipment
and unprofessional service technicians.
Comcast serves a portion of Luzerne
County that includes much of the Back
Mountain, Wilkes-Barre city, Plains and
Jenkins townships, Nanticoke, the West
Side and the greater Pittston area. Fron-
tier serves portions of the Back Moun-
tain, plus Wilkes-Barre, Drums, Conyng-
ham and Hazleton. The overlap in the
Back Mountain was a reason why a bill-
board was located along the Cross Val-
ley. Another billboard was placed along
Route 11 between Scranton and Clarks
Summit, another territory where the
two companies overlap service territo-
ries.
Marty McGuire, Frontiers marketing
manager for Pennsylvania, said the cam-
paign is meant to informthe many peo-
ple not satisfied with Comcast theres
a better alternative available.
He said it was a conscious choice not
to include Frontiers name on the bill-
board and instead just see if people
would go to the website. He said a few
Comcast customers have switchedsince
the billboard went up.
This is about choice for the consum-
er, said Paul Quick, vice president and
general manager of Frontiers Pennsylva-
nia operations.
BILL TARUTIS/FOR THE TIMES LEADER
An anti-Comcast billboard can be seen by motorists traveling north on the Cross Valley Expressway just past the
Luzerne exit. Frontier Communications is hoping the billboard will get Comcast customers to switch to Frontier.

NEWYORKSprint Nextel Corp. on
Thursday said Japanese cellphone com-
pany Softbank Corp. is in talks about
making a potential substantial invest-
ment in the U.S. company.
Sprint, the third-largest cellphone
company in the U.S., said a deal could be
big enough to involve a change of con-
trolof thecompany. It didnt provideany
other details.
The news sent Sprint shares as highas
$6.04, the highest since 2008. The shares
closed up 72 cents, or 14.3 percent, at
$5.76.
The Wall Street Journal, citing an uni-
dentified person with knowledge of the
talks, hadreportedearlier that the poten-
tial deal wouldhelpSoftbankexpandout-
sideof Japan. It put thevalueof thetrans-
action at more than $12.8 billion.
Sprint had a market capitalization of
$15 billion at Wednesdays close, imply-
ing that Softbank may not buy the whole
company.
Analysts expressed surprise at the
news. There has been frequent talk of
Sprint buying other U.S. cellphone com-
panies to help it turn around, but an ac-
quisition by a Japanese company
wouldnt domuchtohelpits competitive
position in the U.S.
Last week, media reports said Sprints
board was considering a bid for Met-
roPCS Communications Inc., the fifth-
largest cellphone company inthe U.S., to
counter anoffer by T-Mobile USA, which
ranks as No. 4. The T-Mobile-MetroPCS
deal could make the competitive situa-
tionevenmore difficult for Sprint, which
has been losing contract-signing sub-
scribers for years.
Meanwhile, shares of Clearwire Corp.
jumped 92 cents, or 71percent, to $2.22.
Sprint owns half of the company, and in-
vestors werebettingthat adeal withSoft-
bank would include a buyout of Clear-
wire. The company operates a wireless
broadband network that Sprint resells as
Sprint 4G.

WASHINGTONThe number
of Americans seeking unemploy-
ment aid plummeted last week to
seasonally adjusted 339,000, the
lowest level in more than four
years.
The sharp drop, if sustained,
couldsignal a stronger job market.
The Labor Department said
Thursday that new weekly appli-
cations fell by 30,000 to the fewest
since February 2008.
The four-week average, a less
volatile measure, dropped by
11,500to364,000, a six-monthlow.
The positive figures follow a re-
port last week that said the unem-
ployment rate fell in September to
7.8 percent. It was the first time
since January 2009 that the rate
dropped below 8 percent.
A Labor Department spokes-
mancautionedthat the weekly un-
employment aid
applications can
be volatile, partic-
ularly at the start
of a quarter.
And the spokes-
man said one large
state accounted
for much of the de-
cline. The spokes-
man did not name
the state.
Unemployment
benefit applications are a proxy for
layoffs. When they consistently
drop below 375,000, it suggests
that hiring is strong enough to
lower the unemployment rate.
Some economists said they
want to see more data before sug-
gesting the job market is turning
around.
Should this level hold for an-
other week, it would flag a mea-
ningful improvement in October
hiring, said Sal Guatieri, senior
economist at BMO Capital Mar-
kets, in a note to clients.
The total number of people re-
ceivingunemployment benefits al-
sofell, the Labor Department said.
A little more than 5 million
Americans receivedbenefits inthe
week ending Sept. 22, the latest
data available. Thats down about
44,000 from the previous week.
Hiring over the summer was
stronger than previously estimat-
ed. The economy gained an aver-
age of 146,000 jobs a month in the
July-September quarter. Thats
more than double the monthly
pace in the April-June quarter.

This cloudy
morning is cour-
tesy of another
cold front pass-
ing through, but
soon skies will
begin to clear
and this will set
the stage for a
very cold night
here tonight. In
fact, it will be
our coldest night
since last April,
with record low
temperatures. I
feel that we will
at least tie the
record of 29 set
back in 2006.
High tempera-
tures today will
hold in the 40s
in higher eleva-
tions. We can
expect another
another gor-
geous day here
on Saturday,
then skies will
turn cloudy at
night, with show-
ers by Sunday
morning. The
rain will lead the
way for warmer
air to move in
early next week
with more show-
ers.
- Tom Clark
NATIONAL FORECAST: A storm system will be responsible for showers from the central Rockies into
the eastern Great Basin. Showers and thunderstorms will extend across central and southern Plains
into the Tennessee Valley. A few strong to severe storms will be possible in this region as well. A
storm system off the coast of the Northwest will result in rain over the Pacic Northwest.
