Many at risk lacking subsidence coverage

WHO SHOULD GET MINE SUBSIDENCE INSURANCE?


State recommends considering insurance

South Korea 12

More than 200,000 people living in 40 Luzerne County municipalities could be at risk of sustaining property damage from mine subsidence. Yet there are just 4,935 mine subsidence insurance policies issued throughout the county by the state Department of Environmental Protection. DEP recently announced a reduction in Mine Subsidence Insurance program premiums, by about 15 percent for a residence and by more than 50 percent for a non-residence. The nonprofit and self-sustaining insurance program covers losses from damage caused by abandoned coal or clay mines and by sudden discharge of water that may be See SUBSIDENCE, Page 10A

contained in a mine void. Such damage is usually not covered by homeowner policies, according to the DEP, which is why the MSI program was started in 1961. There are currently about 57,000 policyholders statewide, DEP spokeswoman Amanda Witman said, while there are about 1 million people living in areas with potential for mine subsidence. It shows there is quite a disparity, Witman said. Property owners can see if they should consider purchasing MSI by logging onto www.paMSI.org and typing in their zip code, then choosing their municipality. If the site reports that mining has oc-

WASHINGTON Welfare is causing a ruckus in the presidential campaign. But the program is a shadow of its old self from the 1970s, when Ronald Reagan used the image of welfare queens to assail government poverty programs promoted by liberals. Nowadays government cash assistance to the poor is mainly conditioned on work. And the Obama administration waivers excoriated by Mitt Romney as gutting welfare reform are unlikely to reverse that basic policy, as even some architects of work requirements acknowledge. If Washington were different and ... people could sit down and reason together, its not impossible to think that Republicans and Democrats would come to an agreement on waivers similar to what the administration is proposing, said Ron Haskins, co-director of the Brookings Center on Children and Families. As a senior House GOP aide in the 1990s, Haskins helped write the original welfare-to-work legislation. The Obama administration says it does not want to waive work requirements, but instead primarily federal administrative rules, including some that tie up state caseworkers who could be serving clients. The 1996 welfare reform law replaced a federal entitlement with grants to the states, while putting a time limit on aid and requiring recipients to eventually go to work. Welfare caseloads declined for years before the recession, and there are only about 2 million families on Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or TANF for short. Former GOP aide Haskins said the Obama administration was wrong to roll out its waiver plan without first getting the advice and consent of congressional Republicans. But he added, There is merit to what the administration is proposing, and I dont see how you can get to the conclusion that the waiver provision undermines welfare reform and it eliminates the work requirement.

Moosic wont let European American Action Coalition use park on Saturday.
By STEVE MOCARSKY smocarsky@timesleader.com

White rights group denied


he said yes. Then it was in the paper yesterday that hes having a rally there and hes not from Moosic. According to whiteadvocate.com the website of the European American Action Coalition -- the group planned to have its third annual European American Heritage Celebration on Saturday at the park, and Merlin Miller, a filmmaker and presidential candidate for the American Third Position Party, was to be the special guest speaker. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, The American Third Position is a political party initially established by racist Southern California skinheads that aims to deport immigrants and return the United States to white rule. A post on the coalition website states the Saturday celebration was canceled due to the borough of Moosic shutting the event down. The poster, identified only as Ryan, threatened retaliation. The borough of Moosic has violated our freedom of speech and our right to peacefully assemble action WILL be taken against the borough for their discriminatory acts against the EAAC.

KINGSTON TWP. Supervisors discussed the townships dwindling funds at a meeting Wednesday as the county earned income tax collector has not delivered funds as promised. Chairman James Reino Jr. said the township is more than $600,000 short of this years budget due to the late-coming dollars. After this months bills are paid only $143,000 remains in the general fund. This affects us most because our township depends mostly on EIT (earned income tax) collections as W H AT S a main source of inNEXT come, said Reino. The next Kingston The board voted Township Board of Supervisors meet- to seek proposals for a tax anticipaing will be held at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 12 tion note, which is in the municipal akin to a loan from building. a financial lending institution that would cover the budget shortfall. The supervisors would only take out such a loan if the township was in dire financial straits, and it would need to pay back that dollar amount of the loan plus interest, which would fall on the backs of taxpayers. Reino said if this does happen, the board plans to ask Don Wilkinson/ CENTAX to cover the interest costs due to its inability to provide the income tax in the first place. This is outrageous that theyre not complying with the requirements, said Supervisor Jeffrey Box of the company. In other business, supervisors appointed the following two residents to township boards: Thomas Festa, of Shavertown, to the planning commission; and Kim Helson, of Shavertown, to the recreation board. There are still several vacancies on the township recreation board. Residents may send a letter of interest to the municipal building at 180 E. Center St., Shavertown, PA 18708 or email info@kingstontownship.com. The board also approved the installation of five fire hydrants on Perrin Avenue, West Mount Airy Road and Roushey Street as part of the proposed water main replacement project by United Water Pennsylvania. The annual cost to maintain these hydrants is about $950.

MOOSIC Borough officials have rescinded permission for a white peoples rights group to have a celebration at the borough park on Saturday, and the group is calling the action discriminatory. Council President John Mercatili said on Wednesday that Steve Smith, a Luzerne County Republican Party committeeman-elect from Pittston, had called the borough to reserve the park pavilion some time ago and Mercatili only recently discovered through a newspaper story that Smith resides in Pittston. Smith made headlines a few weeks after winning the Republican nod for committeeman in Pittstons 4th District when Democrats picked up on the fact that he was a former director of the Keystone State Skinheads. But Mercatili said Smiths political affiliation is not the point of contention. We have a policy: Its for Moosic residents, Mercatili said of reservations for use of the pavilion. We asked him if hes a resident of Moosic and

for the latest news and updates, the post states. Mercatili insists its not the groups connection to white supremacy that spurred the revocation of permission to hold the event, but rather the issue of residency. By law, we cant deny them because of their political beliefs, Mercatili said. But were denying them on the fact that he lied. We take people at their word here in Moosic. But when we found out they lied about where theyre from who wants liars in the neighborhood? Smith, who could not be reached for comment on Wednesday, told The Times Leader on June 1 that he no longer served as director for the Keystone State Skinheads and that he currently served as director for the local chapter of the coalition, which describes itself as an advocacy group for white Americans. Smith in June said he believed the state Democratic Party was engaging in a political ballgame by bringing up his past, which includes a 2003 federal conviction for ethnic intimidation and terroristic threats relating to the assault of a black man in Scranton by himself and two other members of the Keystone State Skinheads.

Drivers in downtown Wilkes-Barre who endured the single lanes, the flaggers and the lack of on-street parking for the past two weeks with the paving of North Main Street will have a smooth road to ride on. The last of the lanes were paved Wednesday. Once that was finished, the dump trucks, rollers and paving equipment moved on to another job.

Although I am retiring, I believe the LIU will continue to support science programs with enthusiasm, said Pack, noting the wealth of scientific talent in the Valley. Philomena Covert, director of curriculum and instruction, said she was looking forward to a very busy year in preparing for revised standardized testing and maintaining a high quality program. Covert noticed the new Pa. Common Core model teaches students not just to memorize, but also to develop the ability to think logically, preparing them for their future.

BRIEF

Chlorine leak resolved


Emergency crews responded to a liquid chlorine leak at the Conyngham Borough Water Authority just before 9 a.m. Wednesday, but the issue was quickly resolved and there was no danger to the public, officials said. About 20 gallons of chlorine leaked into a storm pipe and a culvert before workers were able to shut off a valve, said Colleen Connolly, spokeswoman for the state Department of Environmental Protection. One worker overcome by fumes was taken to a hospital. Information on the workers condition was not available. Connolly said DEP inspectors were on scene trying to determine what caused the leak. Kevin Tarapchak, assistant fire chief for Valley Regional Fire and Rescue, said crews neutralized the chlorine so that it could be cleaned up. They also conducted air quality tests to ensure there was no danger.

PLYMOUTH TWP. -- An elderly man struck by a vehicle on Route 11 died Wednesday, the third hit-and-run fatality in the area in recent weeks. Richard Stadts, 73, of West Nanticoke, died at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township, at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Luzerne County Acting Coroner William

Matthew Perkins, 19. Perkins was later released, Connors said, adding that charges would be filed pending an investigation. The witness, driving in another vehicle, observed a car swerve, not knowing Stadts had been struck. The witness wrote down the license plate number out of concern when the two vehicles stopped at a traffic signal at state Route 29, Connors said. Connors said the witness later drove through the same area and saw paramedics and state police at the accident scene. He stopped and provided information that led us to this in-

dividual, Connors said. He said there was physical evidence at the scene where Stadts was struck. Stadts was wearing a reflective vest and had lights on his bicycle. An autopsy is scheduled today at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital, Lisman said. Stadts is the third person to die in hit-and-run incidents in recent weeks: Rebecca McCallick, 19, died after being struck by a vehicle in front of her apartment at 199 Hazle Ave., Wilkes-Barre, on July 24. Wilkes-Barre police are

searching for a vehicle of interest, a dark-colored pickup truck. City police charged Danielle Castrignano, 20, of Kingston, with leaving the scene after striking Corey Ryan, 20, at South River and West Northampton streets, on June 15. Ryan, who was wheelchair bound, died June 29 at a hospice in Dunmore from injuries suffered in the crash, according to the Lackawanna County Coroners Office. Castrignano surrendered to authorities on June 16. She told police she believed she had struck a shopping cart, according to the criminal complaint.

Gun owners armed with knowledge

Prosecution responds
Prosecutors in the case of Hugo Selenski, accused in a double homicide, have asked a judge to throw out an appeal by Selenskis attorneys. The attorneys appealed a ruling made by Judge Fred Pierantoni that upheld charges filed against Selenski. Selenski, 38, is facing a potential death penalty if Selenski convicted in the deaths of Tammy Fassett and Michael Kerkowski, both of whom were 37 when they died. Investigators allege Selenski killed Fassett and Kerkowski on May 3, 2002. Prosecutors said in a filing Wednesday that the defense attorneys appeal is frivolous amounting to nothing more than a wholly improper attempt to circumvent the trial courts ability to quash the appeal by finding it frivolous and obtain another delay in trial. No hearing date has been set.

Serious stuff
JON OCONNELL Times Leader Correspondent

Luzerne County Community College weapons instructor Randy Shaw, right, talks with Ray Arellano and Ellen Evers of Wilkes-Barre at a Wilkes-Barre Crime Watch meeting Wednesday evening.

Arraignment postponed

A federal judge postponed the arraignment of attorney Anthony Lupas on a revised indictment that alleges he stole more than $6 million from investors. Lupas, 77, of Plains Township, was scheduled to appear Wednesday before U.S. District Judge Robert Mariani to be arraigned on 29 counts of mail fraud and two counts of conspiracy. The judge did not indicate the reason for the postponement or set a new Lupas date. Lupas attorneys, William Ruzzo and Joseph Blazosek, have questioned if Lupas is competent to stand trial. Mariani recently ordered Lupas to continue to undergo treatment by a physician who specializes in geriatric medicine. The physician will issue a report on Lupas competency within four months. Prosecutors say Lupas bilked eight investors by falsely portraying money they gave him had been invested in a trust fund. He was initially indicted in March on one count of mail fraud. A grand jury issued a second indictment on July 31 adding the additional charges.

ILKES-BARRE WilkesBarres Crime Watch Coalition hosted a follow-up firearms safety seminar Wednesday night to answer questions asked at a safety seminar last month about using firearms for protection. Leading the discussion with about 60 citizens from across the county, Luzerne County Community College firearms instructor Randy Shaw stressed the importance of knowledge. This is serious stuff, Shaw said. As gun owners, as homeowners, you have to have the knowledge of what you can and cannot do. Shaw, assisted by Luzerne

County Detective Chaz Balogh, explained Pennsylvanias Castle Doctrine, which states, in summary, that citizens have the right to stand their ground and resort to deadly force if they fear their life is in danger or if they feel the threat of serious bodily injury. Before its revision last year, the law stated that a citizen had a duty to flee before resorting to force. The duo fielded questions from the audience and identified situations that justify using deadly force, and a few that do not. They said that a burglar simply standing in someones home, regardless of whether he is there illegally or not, poses no threat to the residents health, and cannot

be shot. However, if the intruder moves aggressively toward the resident, circumstances will have changed and may require force be used. Repeatedly through the seminar, Shaw asked residents to consider if they would be able to explain the event to an officer should they use deadly force. He said that when its all said and done, and someone is dead, the ability to articulately justify a decision could be what keeps a person out of jail. Just like a police officer cannot use excessive force in the line of duty, a citizen has to abide by the same rules, he said.

Arbitration gives county detectives pay, benefits


By JENNIFER LEARN-ANDES jandes@timesleader.com

An arbitration award has granted Luzerne County detectives the same pay and benefits rejected by a county council majority in May. The countys 10 detectives will receive no raise this year and 2 percent increases the remaining four years of the contract. Existing detectives will continue receiving length-of-service bonuses based on a formula that resulted in payments ranging from $498 to $13,530 in 2011. New detectives would receive flat amounts from $400 for five years of employment up to $1,500 for more than 20 years. Health care coverage contributions for current detectives will be 10 percent or monthly payments of $30 for individual coverage and $100 for family, depending on the hiring date. Future hires will pay 12 percent toward

health care. A new clause allows qualifying detectives over age 55 to receive health care until theyre eligible for Medicare if they voluntarily leave employment. Detectives will continue receiving 18 sick days per year, though new hires will be capped at 10 days annually. County Manager Robert Lawton had recommended passage. Some of the opposing council members said the proposal didnt provide enough concessions. Council members who supported the pact said they feared the county would end up paying more through arbitration. Council Chairman Jim Bobeck, who was against sending the proposal to arbitration, said Wednesday the county gained nothing. The county never wins with added payout for arbitrators to get the exact same thing it had in the first place, Bobeck said.

The county paid $8,767 for a legal representative and fees associated with the arbitration, records show. County council must vote on the arbitration award for it to take effect. Past commissioners had discussed the possibility of rejecting raises and other arbitration mandates if taxes had to be raised to fund them, but they never acted on the threat. Union officials said they would file a grievance if the county refused to honor a binding arbitration award. The only omission in the detective arbitration award was a clause addressing promotions based on seniority, officials said. The administration added the clause in the proposed contract to comply with merit-driven promotion procedures in the home rule charter and personnel code. Lawton told council in an email the contract could save up to $600,000 per year if five detectives leave and are not replaced.

PITTSTON TWP. Airport Director Barry Centini said he found incredulous a report that suggests the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport and more than 100 others are facing such severe funding cuts that they could be forced to close. I dont see it happening, honestly, Centini said Wednesday. I dont know the organization that did the study. Weve not gotten one inkling of any doom on the horizon not one call from the Federal Aviation Administration nothing. Our plans are we are open for business and plan to be come 2013. According to an analysis released by the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C., as many as 106 U.S. airports including Wilkes-Barre/Scranton could lose air traffic control service and effectively be shut down under automatic spending cuts scheduled to take effect Jan. 2. Scott Lilly, a CAP senior fellow and former director of the House Appropriations Committee, used the Federal Aviation Administration as an example to illustrate in vivid detail the effects of automatic spending cuts known as sequestration. Unless Congress finds an alternative approach to cutting the deficit by January, Lilly said, many federal agencies will face $1.2 trillion in across-the-board spending cuts over 10 years. The FAA is only one small example of the kind of mindless economic chaos that these across-the-board cuts are likely to create, Lilly said. National parks will be closed. Key regulatory functions will be curtailed. Law enforcement will be crippled. Border security will be sacrificed. And our capacity to deal with problems around the world like Syria, North Korea or the new government in Egypt will be compromised. Lillys study said the FAA will have to slash its budget in 2013 by about $1.35 billion, according to his calculations. And, Lilly said, FAA officials will be unable to shield air traffic control (or any other FAA-funded service) from cuts. To minimize disruption, Lilly said, FAA officials will likely be forced to cut air traffic service at airports where they would have the least impact on the traveling public the smaller airports. Lilly said its not too late for Congress to avoid the economic calamity of sequestration. U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, said it would be premature to comment on this report until the FAA weighs in on any possible closures. The real problem the nation faces is the Senates inability or unwillingness to pass a budget that properly funds our government, said Barletta, a member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. Inaction by the Senate is sending our federal government and its employees off a fiscal cliff. As for sequestration, Barletta said he was glad to vote for HR 5872, which would require the president to submit to Congress a detailed preview of the sequestration required by the Budget Control Act and how the spending cuts are to be implemented. U.S. Rep. Tom Marino, R-Lycoming Township, said he is confident common sense measures can be put in place to avoid the cuts.

Stabbing suspect asks for release

Popular flea market in new home

Fired prof appeals dismissal of lawsuit

WILKES-BARRE A West Hazleton man charged with stabbing another man in the leg after a fight in June 2011 has asked to be released from prison on bail because it has been more than 180 days since his arrest and he has not yet been brought to trial. Pedro Delgado, 25, of North Third Street, appeared in Luzerne County Court on Wednesday for a pre-trial hearing with his attorney, Mark Bufalino. Delgado was charged on June 19, 2011, after an altercation on 3rd and Mine streets in Hazleton, where Wendy Henriquez told police Delgado stabbed him in the leg. In February, Delgado asked that he be released on nominal bail because has had been jailed for more than 180 days. Early last month, Delgado also made a request to have the charges against him dismissed because it had been more than 365 days since his arrest and he had yet to stand trial a violation of his speedy trial rights. Judge Lesa Gelb ordered that Catholic Social Services come up with a plan and assessment of where Delgado will go and what he will do if released before she addresses the nominal bail issue. Gelb set another hearing on the request for Aug. 28. Delgado also expressed concerns that he still has not been scheduled to stand trial on two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of simple assault and one count each of reckless endangerment and harassment. Gelb scheduled a tentative trial date for Oct. 9.

ARSHALLS CREEK Seven months after closing, organizers of the Pocono Bazaar flea market now have a new home two miles north of where it had been located for decades. The flea market one of the largest in Northeast Pennsylvania had been a regional draw since it opened 29 years ago.

Closed Dec. 31 at its longtime home along U.S. Route 209, the flea market reopened July 6 in another part of Marshalls Creek in what was once the Foxmoor Village Shopping Center. Located off Route 209, the center has turned vacant stores into vendor space and the courtyard bustles with tables full of items for sale each weekend. It now is called Pocono Square Mall. The parking lot is filled with
LIGHTWEIGHT PROTECTION FOR A HEAVY DUTY WORLD

cars every Saturday and Sunday, said Wayne Rohner, the zoning officer for Middle Smithfield Township. The mall has been revived because of it. It was pretty much a dead zone. It now has weekend life. A subsidiary of the development company that owns the Stroud Mall in Stroudsburg and more than 130 other malls and shopping centers plans to open a 103,000-square-foot shopping center on the 12.6-acre former flea market site. Among the stores slated to occupy the center when it opens next year are a Rite Aid and a Price Chopper grocery store, Rohner said. The Pocono Square Mall, in addition to the flea market vendors, has a movie theater, salon, PNC

Bank, church, the townships library, an army/navy store and a dollar store. Messages left with flea market officials were not returned Wednesday. For years, getting to this part of the township, especially the old flea market grounds, was difficult as traffic congestion along Route 209 was well known to motorists. A long-stalled bypass remained in the planning stages for a decade before finally opening in June. The new road, Rohner said, has helped tremendously. The bypass works, Rohner said. What might have been a 45minute slow crawl from I-80 now takes less than 15 minutes on most days, he added. To date, the project has cost nearly $40 million.

WILKES-BARRE A former Penn State Wilkes-Barre professor who was fired for plagiarism has appealed a Luzerne County judges ruling that dismissed a lawsuit he filed against the university. Mohamad Nouri of McLean, Va., filed suit in 2006, alleging two university officials improperly revealed information about the plagiarism case that led another college to revoke an employment offer. Judge Lesa Gelb recently dismissed the lawsuit, finding that Nouri had not presented evidence to support his allegation that the university officials acted in bad faith. Nouri, a mathematics professor, was fired in April 2004 after an investigation revealed he had plagiarized the work of other professors and students. According to court papers, Nouri was offered a position at Catholic University for the 2005-06 academic year. The college later revoked that offer based on information it obtained about the Penn State plagiarism case. Nouri alleged two Penn State Wilkes-Barre officials, Rodney Erickson, vice provost, and Mary Hines, chancellor, interfered with his contractual relationship with Catholic University by revealing information about the case to Dr. John Convey, the provost at Catholic University. In a June 29 opinion dismis-

sing the case, Gelb said pre-trial evidence showed that Convey learned about the plagiarism case when he came across a website run by Nouri that contained news articles about his termination. In an affidavit, Convey said he had spoken to Erikson, but that Erickson only confirmed that the news articles were accurate. Gelb noted civil law statutes say an employer may be liable for disclosing information about an employee only if the information is false or misleading. If the employer acted in good faith, it is immune from liability. In Nouris case, Gelb said it was clear that Convey based his decision on information he obtained from articles posted on Nouris website. The only evidence established by the plaintiff confirms that he disclosed his website and his problems at Pennsylvania State University to members of Catholic University. This evidence does not in any way establish that Penn State or Dr. Erickson did anything inappropriate, Gelb said. Gelb also dismissed the case against Hines, finding that, contrary to Nouris allegations, Hines was not even employed at Penn State at the time Convey was alleged to have spoken to her. Nouri, acting as his own attorney, filed an appeal Monday of Gelbs ruling to the state Superior Court.

Temple gunman killed self, police say


Motive for Sikh sanctuary shooting still unknown

Getting an education in Chile

RICHMOND, CALIF.

MILWAUKEE Theres no trial to prepare, no jury to persuade, no judge to hand down a sentence. Wade Michael Page is dead, having shot himself in the head after killing six people at a Sikh temple outside Milwaukee. Police initially said an officer killed Page, but Teresa Carlson, the FBIs special agent in charge in Milwaukee, said Wednesday that Page shot himself in the head and died of that wound. Although detectives have interviewed more than 100 people, combed through Pages email and recovered hundreds of pieces of evidence from his residences to the temple, their findings might never be presented in court. Federal investigators are developing theories but also may never know for

certain why he chose to attack total strangers in a holy place. Were trying to piece together, and eventually we will piece together as much as we can, said Steven Conley, assistant agent in charge of national security for the FBI in Milwaukee. We will have a good idea of the motive by the time this investigation is done. But again, why that building, that temple, at that time, that may have died with Page. Detectives are sifting through Pages life, assembling the biography of a man who apparently had few relatives, a spotty work history and a thin criminal record. Carlson said investigators havent linked anyone else to the attack or found any kind of note left by Page. Still, the Sikh community holds out hope. We just want to get to the bottom of what motivated him to do it, said

Amardeep Singh, an executive with the New York-based Sikh Coalition. Its important to acknowledge why they lost their lives. Page, a 40-year-old Army veteran, opened fire with a 9 mm pistol at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin shortly before Sunday services. The dead included temple President Satwant Singh Kaleka, who was shot as he tried to fend off Page with a butter knife. Page shot a responding police officer at least eight times in the parking lot before another officer wounded him. It was then that Page shot and killed himself, Carlson said. A native of Littleton, Colo., Page had a record of minor alcohol-related crimes in Texas, Colorado and North Carolina. He was demoted during a stint in the AP PHOTO Army for getting drunk on duty and going AWOL before he was discharged in A vigil is held Tuesday in Oak Creek, Wis., for the Sikh temple victims. 1998.

eries quickly unraveled into an intense fire that sent acrid black smoke into the sky and hundreds of people to hospitals with health complaints. This latest disruption at Chevrons refinery in this city about 10 miles northwest of San Francisco one of the West Coasts big refineries was expected to affect gasoline prices in the region. With inventories of gasoline in the region already low compared with the rest of the country, pump prices on the West Coast will soon average more than $4 a gallon, Kloza said. Chevron spokesman Lloyd Avram said he did not know when the refinery could be restarted and declined to comment on the impact the shutdown might have on the gasoline market.

SANFORD, FLA.

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who killed Trayvon Martin in Florida, will probably not face trial until early next year, his lawyers said. The Zimmerman case was scheduled on Wednesday for a docket sounding, a pro forma court procedure in which the court is given an update on the progress in the proceedings. However, Judge Kenneth R. Lester on Tuesday granted a defense request to continue the matter -- that is, push the docket sounding back -- until Oct. 3. Zimmerman is charged with seconddegree murder in the shooting death of Martin, an unarmed African-American teenager, in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26. Zimmerman has acknowledged shooting Martin, but has insisted that he acted in self-defense, invoking Floridas so-called stand-your-ground law. Zimmerman is out of jail after posting a $1 million bail bond.

Smarter than the average bear raids candy shop


By COLLEEN SLEVIN Associated Press

A woman who allegedly tried to steal a newborn baby from a California hospital after faking a pregnancy will face charges of kidnapping and five felony counts of first-degree burglary, prosecutors said Wednesday. Grisel Ramirez, 48, of Garden Grove was scheduled for arraignment Wednesday afternoon and prosecutors planned to ask that she be held on $1 million bail, the Orange County district attorneys office said in a statement. If convicted, she faces up to 17 years and eight months in state prison. Ramirez posed as a visitor to enter Garden Grove Medical Center, where she attempted to abduct a baby Monday, Lt. Jeff Nightengale said Tuesday.

Baby abduction tried

DENVER A bear in a candy store is nothing like a bull in a china shop. At least not this one. A black bear went in and out of a Colorado candy store multiple times early one July morning, but he used the front door and didnt break a thing. The bear did, however, steal some treats from the Estes Park store, including English toffee and some chocolate-chip cookies dipped in caramel and milk chocolate called cookie bears. Surveillance video at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory showed the bear prying open the door and grabbing some candy near the regis-

ters. He took the treats outside and ate them, then returned for more. The bear made seven trips in about 15 minutes, finally leaving after a passing car apparently scared him away. Store owner Jo Adams said Wednesday the bear managed to pop open the door because the deadbolt wasnt completely secured. She said the only evidence her mindful visitor left behind was some dirt on a counter and some paper on the ground. There werent even any wrappers, so she assumes he ate those too. He was very clean and very careful. He ate a lot of candy, said Adams of the bear break-in, first reported by the Estes Park News. Keeping bears out of human food in

homes, garbage cans and cars is an ongoing struggle in Colorados mountain towns, including Estes Park, the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. A bear that broke in to more than one occupied home there was euthanized last month because it posed a danger to people, Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill said. She said this years drought is making the intelligent animals even more resourceful in finding food, and success can put them in danger of one day being put down. Adams said shes a bear lover and doesnt support killing the animals. Were in their turf, and you just put up with these things when they happen, she said.

WASHINGTON This probably comes as no surprise: Federal scientists say July was the hottest month ever recorded in the Lower 48 states, breaking a record set during the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. And even less a surprise: The U.S. this year keeps setting records for weather extremes, based on the precise calculations that include drought, heavy rainfall, unusual temperatures, and storms. The average temperature last month was 77.6 degrees. That breaks the old record from July 1936 by 0.2 degree, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Records go back to 1895. Its a pretty significant increase over the last record, said climate scientist Jake Crouch of NOAAs National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C. In the past, skeptics of global warming have pointed to the Dust Bowl to argue that recent heat isnt unprecedented. But Crouch said this shows that the current year is out and beyond those Dust Bowl years. Were rivaling and beating them consistently from month to month. Three of the nations five hottest months on record have been recent Julys: This year, 2011 and 2006. Julys in 1936 and 1934 round out the top five. Last month also was 3.3 degrees warmer than the 20th-century average for July. Thirty-two states had months that were among their 10 warmest Julys, but only one, Virginia, had the hottest July on record. Crouch said thats a bit unusual, but that it shows the breadth of the heat and associated drought.

Austin Weirschke of Queens, N.Y., won after eight rounds at the texting competition Wednesday in Times Square. He gets $50,000. Eleven contestants from around the U.S. competed. The competition tested three skills: speed, accuracy and dexterity. There were three rounds, including texting while blind-folded and texting with hands behind their backs. The third round is called text blitz. Phrases were shown to the contestants for a length of time and they copied them as fast as they could. The annual competition is sponsored by cellphone-maker LG Electronics.

Mother of all battles in Syria?


By BEN HUBBARD Associated Press

TEL RIFAT, Syria Syria launched a ground assault Wednesday on rebel-held areas of the besieged city of Aleppo, the center of battles between government forces and opposition fighters for more than two weeks. It was not immediately clear if the offensive was the mother of all battles that Syrias state-controlled media vowed last month would take place for control of Aleppo. In recent weeks, the regimes blistering attacks on rebel positions seem to have slowly

chipped away at the oppositions grip on its strongholds in the countrys largest city. The official SANA news agency said regime forces have fully regained control of the Salaheddine neighborhood, the main rebel area in Aleppo. It claimed the fall of hundreds of armed terrorists, the governments catchall term for its opponents, without specifying what that meant. Rami Abdul-Rahman, the director of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said troops met resistance in the offensive.

About 25 miles north of Aleppo, Syrian fighter jets carried out airstrikes early Wednesday on the village of Tel Rifat, hitting a home and a high school and killing six people from the same family, residents said. It was unclear why the area was targeted. Residents said government forces often shelled the village, but that this had been the first airstrike. They acknowledged that there were some rebels in the AP PHOTO village, though an Associated Press reporter saw no armed In this citizen journalism image provided by Shaam News men during a brief drive Network SNN, taken on Tuesday, Syrians carry the body of a man during his funeral procession in Idlib province, Syria. through the area.

KINGSTON -- Superintendent Charles Suppon announced Wednesday the district is in the process of setting up its own cyber school in conjunction with Seneca Valley School District. The plan is for Wyoming Valley West to eventually run its own cyber school independently. One current cyber school student spoke to the board about her inability to participate in extra-curricular activities at Wyoming Valley West. Board member Thomas Pieczynski said that by joining the cyber school she had removed herself from the W H A T S district. NEXT He said this was one of the reasons The next the district wantWyoming ed to set up its Valley West School own cyber school. Board meet- District cyber stuing will be at dents will be able 7 p.m. Sept. to participate fully 12. in district activities and receive a Wyoming Valley West diploma. In other matters: Suppon assured residents and board members that in spite of rumors to the contrary all district schools will open on Sept. 4. He praised staff members for working hard to make sure that the State Street School renovations will be completed in time for the first day of school. Resident Charles Urban of Kingston questioned the board about its refusal to host a conference sponsored by the Pennsylvania Taxpayers PCTA, a group in favor of eliminating property taxes in favor of increased sales taxes. Board members told Urban the cost of sponsoring the meeting was the reason for the denial. Board president John Gill told Urban, I dont think theres any group of people who understand better how unfair property taxes are than this board. All juniors will be affected by the transition from PSSA competency testing to Keystone end-ofcourse testing. A parents information night will be held 7 p.m. Sept. 6 at the high school. Board members were surprised when a resident complained that the girls soccer team wasnt scheduled to practice on turf in the fall. Board members said this was a decision by the athletic director. Well get to the bottom of this, Pieczynski said. Pringle Street Elementary and Main Street Elementary in Plymouth are now officially closed. Scott Coates was appointed as district music department chairperson. Megan Wilski Schneider was appointed middle school band director.

Stilp seeks Barletta debates


Challenger wants events in each of 9 counties that will make up newly drawn district.
By BILL OBOYLE boboyle@timesleader.com

With 90 days to go until Election Day, 11th U.S. Congressional District Democratic candidate Gene Stilp has challenged his opponent, incumbent U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, to a series of debates in each of the nine counties in what will be the newly drawn district starting in January. Stilp faxed and mailed a letter issuing the challenge to Barletta on Tuesday, but Lance Stange Jr., Barlettas campaign chairman, said Wednesday he has not received the fax or any invitation from Stilp to debate Barletta. When Mr. Stilp was last in Hazleton, I personally gave him my contact information and asked that he direct political requests to the campaign office. The campaign office has received no communication from Mr. Stilp, Stange said. Stange said Barletta, R-Hazleton, looks forward to opportunities

Stilp

to talk about the issues with the people of the 11th District. He said the campaign is working to secure a televised debate for the northeast and another debate to service the central/south central region. It is still early in the campaign cycle, but we will continue to evaluate each request for the congressman to participate in events on a case-by-case basis with due considerationpaidtotheoverallbenefitof the voters and his schedule, Stange said. Stilp noted that in 2010, Barletta challenged then-incumbent Paul Kanjorski to a series of five debates one in each county of the11th District. Since the district has been realigned, Stilp said voters in all nine counties should have the opportunity to attend a debate to get to know the candidates and their stances on issues.

There are clear differences between me and ELECTION Mr. Barletta and the voters should have a chance to see them in person, not in 30-second commercials, Stilp said. People from Shippensburg cant be expected to drive to Hazleton for one debate. Stilp said he would meet Barlettaanywhere,anytimeandhesaid he has already accepted an invitation from Luzerne County Community Colleges Student Government for a debate. I agree that all debates should be held when Congress is not in session, Stilp said. But when Mr. Barletta is in the district, he should agree to debate instead of going to a hot dog festival. The nine counties in the 11th District are Carbon, Columbia, Cumberland, Dauphin, Luzerne, Montour, Northumberland, Perry and Wyoming. Thenew11thCongressionalDistrict stretches over 200 miles from Tunkhannock, Wyoming County, through Shippensburg, Cumberland County.

Ultimately, we need to know the Obama administrations true intentions for FAA budget cuts, Marino said. U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, DScranton, said the loss of air traffic control at the 106 airports is obviously an unacceptable scenario. He said he is confident Republicans and Democrats will work together toward an agreement. We need to take a balanced approach that maintains commerce, keeps the economy growing, and doesnt jeopardize our national security, Casey said. Centini insisted everybody is jumping the gun on this thing. He said he is taking a wait-and-see approach. Do I see 106 airports closing? No, he said. Even if the worst was to happen, the airport would remain open. This idea of laying off controllers may not even happen. Honestly, I dont see it happening.

WILKES-BARRE A Luzerne County judge Wednesday ruled on evidence that can be used at the trial of a woman charged with setting a fire that destroyed a Conyngham apartment and business complex. Judge David Lupas also scheduled the trial of Gail Schneider, 43, of Berwick, to begin on Nov. 19. Schneider was charged in September 2010 with setting a blaze that ravaged four businesses and four apartments at the Lantern Lane complex along South Main Street. Lupas said prosecutors may use the following evidence at the trial: Schneider had been cited with disorderly conduct and was evicted from the apartment complex in 2009. Schneider filed a civil complaint against local real estate developer Kenneth Temborski for

the return of a $790 security deposit. A district judge ruled in favor of Temborski in December 2009. Evidence of an incident Schneider had in September 2010 with a tenant at the complex in which the word DIE was allegedly scratched into the tenants door. Police searched a computer belonging to Schneider on which they allegedly found searches for specific fire investigation information about lighter fluid and how to blow up a car. Schneiders attorneys, William Miele and Trisha Hoover, had previously argued the evidence should be thrown out because it was not relevant and highly prejudicial. According to court papers, Valley Regional Fire and Rescue responded to the two-story complex at 314-316 S. Main St. just after 2:30 a.m. Sept. 5, 2010. Extensive fire damage and severe water and smoke damage exceeded $1 million, police said.

In addition to Answini and Palermo, Robert Baran, Donna Cupinski, Jack George, Ed Harry, George Horwatt and Kathy Kane voted for the increased coverage. Board members Hal Bloss, Jonathan Comitz and Kathleen Lambert were absent. Cupinski, board chairwoman, provided the board with an update on the new center-ice scoreboard expected to be ready for the upcoming Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton Penguins hockey season. CBS Outdoor has started production of the panels, Cupinski said. A representative of the company was at the arena Wednesday to go through the production room to plan for the layout of the equipment, she added. So everything is very well on production for that, Cupinski said.

WILKES-BARRE TWP. Board members who oversee the Mohegan Sun Arena voted Wednesday to increase professional liability coverage for them individually and as a group. The insurance coverage was on the agenda for the Luzerne County Convention Center Authoritys regular monthly meeting at the arena. At the request of board member Angelo Answini, the authority looked into getting more than the $1 million in coverage now in place. Joyce Insurance Group of Pittston said Hiscox Insurance Co. could provide $3 million in aggregate coverage. The premium would increase to $7,676 a year from $6,729. The policy would provide liability coverage for directors and officers and employment practices.

For nearly 40 minutes, the board held an executive session to discuss pending litigation with the builder of the arena, Oscar J. Boldt Construction Co. of Appleton, Wis., Ufberg said. Former Luzerne County Judge Mark Ciavarella dismissed all but a $300,000 claim of the builders multimillion-dollar breach-ofcontract suit in May 2004. The authority countersued and the parties are scheduled for trial later this year. In addition to the Boldt suit, an issue arose that could be the source of litigation, Ufberg said.

OTHER OPINION: INTOLERANCE

Attack at temple reveals ugly truths


MERICA NEVER really was the melting pot it was popularly depicted to be, but there has long been the dream that it might one day become that nation where neither color, place of birth, nor religion mattered. The Sikh temple shootings Sunday in Oak Creek, Wis., tell us just how far we are from that day. Six people were killed and three others wounded when a gunman opened fire in that house of worship. The attacker, who died of a self-inflicted gunshot, was later identified as Wade M. Page, 40, an Army veteran. Wades was a familiar name to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Alabama-based organization that keeps track of hate groups. It counted more than a thousand last year. Page played in skinhead bands, including one called Definite Hate, and posted comments on racist websites. The actual motive for the shootings isnt known. Some thought the Sikhs might have been mistaken for Muslims, a frequent target for hate since 9/11. The law center said racist message boards erupted with comments after the tragedy, including one that said: Take your dead and go back to India and dump their ashes in the Ganges. Go home, Sikhs. Intolerance in this country has been exacerbated by the economic uncertainty that touches us all so soon after the recession. America will get over the fiscal crisis, just as it recovered from the Great Depression. The more difficult job is to overcome the hatred that cant be obliterated in a political environment that stresses antagonism above cooperation.

Dorothy Carr initiated in 1976 the Friends of the Osterhout Free Library, a group of dedicated volunteers whose purpose was to help in funding additional aid for the library. Through her driving force, the library staff and patrons received needed supplies. This organization still exists today and is a wonderful legacy to this unassuming woman who made a difference. For more than 20 years Dorothy was a staunch supporter of the Fine Arts Fiesta. She volunteered her time, making sure that the Fiesta was as polished as it could be. She spent hours each day helping wherever she was needed and did so joyfully, never asking for recognition. So it was on July 21 that Dorothy left this world the same way in which she lived it, quietly and without a lot of acknowledgment.

basketball in their places? I would ask the NCAA and its president, Mr. Mark Emmert, that if you are truly serious about improving college athletics and improving athletes educations, why dont you implement the following changes immediately? 1) How about putting an end to all these schools jumping conferences for millions and millions of dollars? 2) How about having the same entrance requirements for revenue-producing athletes as colleges have for regular students? 3) How about if the NCAA makes all member schools cap the obnoxious salaries these overpriced prima donna football and basketball coaches make to mirror the pay of college math, science and English professors? 4) And, finally, how about declaring all of these weekday prime-time football and basketball telecasts to be null and void, completely eliminated so that these student-athletes can improve their grades? I guess that would be asking too much.

NCAA sanctions end dreams of PSU players

Welcome to the Lake for homecoming fest

he sapphire in the emerald hills of Northeastern Pennsylvania situated between the Endless Mountains and the Back Mountain is Harveys Lake, the gem of Luzerne County. Harveys Lake is historically and geographically unique in Pennsylvania. Noted as the largest natural body of water, it was once three glaciers, three lakes that eventually became one. Constant breezes, bountiful trees and crystal-blue, dancing waves make our lake community a haven in which to reside. Since the bicentennial in 1981 we have celebrated our community. With the leadership of Mayor Clarence Hogan, the annual homecoming event continues this Friday through Sunday, with many activities at the former Hansons Amusement Park, Pole 151. It begins with Lake Reflections, as homes and docks are illuminated for a unified welcome to all visitors to the lakeside drive. Starting at 9:30 a.m. Saturday at the Grotto marina, there will be an antique and classic boat show. At 10, the Harveys Lake Fire Department will offer childrens activities such as water games and a dunking machine, with other activities to follow. Pre-registration for the theme boat regatta begins at 4 p.m. Sundays activities begin at 9 a.m. with the kayak race. Entertainment continues

ever have I seen such stupidity in a ruling by the NCAA! Those young men on Penn State football scholarships are being denied the chance to prove themselves a lifes ambition for some. What about the young men who already have two, three, four years of their lives and dreams of their future in football. What about the entire student body? What a stigma to live down for not having a thing to do with the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal. The NCAA has done as much harm to people as Sandusky has done to children. Those affected by Jerry had the moral responsibility to report the problem, as did those who found out. I think the NCAA should be reorganized so common-sense people are controlling it. All it seemingly wants to do is throw around its weight and look politically correct. To hell with common sense and to hell with our young college students is the message delivered by the NCAA.

DAs want PSU fines to fund child centers

Ruling on UGI compressor Sept. 4


Times Leader staff

PHILADELPHIA Prosecutors in Pennsylvania hope to steer some of the $60 million in fines Penn State must pay the NCAA over the Jerry Sandusky sex-abuse scandal to childrens advocacy centers across the state. The group is not seeking a specific amount of money, but wants to add to the 21 advocacy centers that now exist across 67 counties, Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said. The centers offer a single place for children to tell their stories of abuse to a trained interviewer, while police, therapists and others watch remotely. This prevents children from having to tell their stories repeatedly to various experts. The centers also offer various services or referrals to the victim and family members. The $60 million fine is part of the NCAA sanctions facing Penn State in the wake of the sex-abuse scandal involving Sandusky, a former assistant football coach. He was convicted in June of abusing 10 boys, sometimes on Penn States campus, from 1994 to 2008. The advocacy centers have been sprouting up in the past decade or so. Some counties contribute to their centers operating budget, while others have to raise all of their funds from donors or grants. Centre

County does not yet have a center. A school spokesman said Penn State is still contemplating how to use the money, but hopes to help children in a variety of ways. Penn State recognizes the fine work done each day by our states district attorneys, children advocacy centers and countless organizations that help children. The university is working to formulate a plan to create and administer the fund. It is our hope the fund will produce countless opportunities to help children in need. We appreciate this valuable input and will provide additional details when they become available, spokesman David La Torre said in a statement. Also Wednesday, the ranking Democrat in the state House wrote to Penn State president Rodney Erickson, arguing the NCAA fine should be used to fight child abuse in Pennsylvania. Minority Leader Frank Dermody, D-Allegheny, asked Erickson how decisions will be made about the $60 million and what procedures will help ensure the money is spent properly. While child sexual abuse undeniably is a national problem, the impact of the Sandusky case has been, and will continue to be, felt most immediately in Pennsylvania, Dermody said.

WILKES-BARRE The Luzerne County Zoning Hearing Board will issue its decision on UGI Energy Services plan to build a compressor station and associated structure in West Wyoming at its next meeting on Sept. 4, board solicitor Stephen Menn said. The board heard testimony from UGI representatives and numerous residents who oppose the station for more than five hours Wednesday night. It postponed a decision to give members more time to consider evidence presented. UGI is seeking to build a compressor station containing three natural-gas-fueled compressors, meters, storage tanks, a radio tower and an odorant building on a 14-acre plot off Fire Cut Road. The land is zoned A1 agricultural district, which means UGI must obtain a special exception to

build the station and a variance for the tower. Gas company representatives assured the board and the public the compressor station would be safe, noting the level of any chemicals that would be released into the atmosphere are far below federal standards. They also noted noise would not be an issue because the station would be located about a half-mile from the nearest homes or roads. The assurances did little to quell opposition to the plans as numerous residents spoke out against the proposal. Most cited

concerns for safety and that it would negatively impact their property values. Exeter Councilman Lawrence Dellegrotto also questioned whether the station could legally be situated in an A1 zoning district as it appears the stations purpose is more industrial than agricultural. Dellegrotto said UGI is seeking to classify the compressor as a utility building and yard or an accessory building, which is permitted in an A1 district. He argued the compressor is not an accessory, but a primary building. They are processing gas, Dellegrotto said. That use is not agricultural. Are they planting? Are they storing grain? The use is industrial. Menn said testimony in the case is now closed, but the board will accept written summaries of the arguments against the compressors until Aug. 27.

Dave Phillips, the Pennsylvania spokesman for Bloomington, Ill.-based State Farm Insurance, said the company will continue to support NCAA football as we have for years.

In the past, State Farm aired radio ads during Penn State football games.

Rishe noted companies are in business to make money, so its tough to fault them for being risk-averse. John Mellon, a professor of business and marketing at Misericordia University in Dallas Township, said he cannot see many, if any, reasons for a sponsor to remain with the Penn State football program. I would not hesitate to drop Penn State based solely on the situation, Mellow, of Butler Township, said. He said the negatives outweigh the positives and in the corporate world, any negativity is bad for business. He noted one clich that he believes rings true in this case. When you have a positive experience, you tell one or two people. When you have a negative experience, you tell 10 or 12.

casts of Penn State games after the scandal broke, the magazine noted in a story accompanying the list. The good news for Penn State is that major sponsors like Pepsi and Nike have yet to jump ship. The loss of those sponsors would seriously hurt the schools athletic revenue, It seems almost certain that Penn States reign as a top-earning program is coming to an end, the story concluded. Patrick Rishe, an economics professor at Webster University

in St Louis, said he would not be surprised to see Penn State fall into the teens on that list in the next year or two. And that means another financial hit for the school, which has already spent millions on a private investigation into the schools role in the Sandusky abuse scandal, and has been fined $60 million by the NCAA. It also will lose revenue from not appearing in NCAA bowl games over the next four seasons and will lose millions each year because it will not receive a share of Big 10 bowl revenue for the next four years. That could cost $5 million to $10 million annually, Rishe estimated.

The good part is that everybody in your classroom can be a teacher, Murphy said, touting how students will be able to display their work, even as they do it. The bad part is anybody can take control of the screens. Anyone holding a pad can wirelessly project what is on his or her own iPad screen. To spur collaboration and interest, the district decided not to protect access with a password. District officials believe the benefits far outweigh any risks. The district started dabbling in iPads in June 2011, buying three for administrators to test, Murphy said. The results were unremarkable, but they tried again, putting five more into the hands of teachers and traveling to West Virginia for a meeting with Apple experts. Newly impressed, they bought 30 iPads and used them in two classrooms this spring. What we found was that, in the lower-level math groups, test scores went up an average of 65 percent, Superintendent James McGovern said. The pads also proved successful with special-education students. Weve seen significant improvements as far as speech classes, learning support, au-

tism, a lot of those hands-on classes, McGovern said. The iPad really raises the interest level of the students and allows them to really go into more detail in the subject matter. So now there are 350 of them, most divvied up into carts that hold 30 pads each, recharging them when the pads are in the cart, and wirelessly connecting the pads to the projector when they are in use. Money for the iPads already had been budgeted for the districts technology leasing program computers are routinely leased rather than bought because they become outdated quickly. We got 200 new laptops for

our teachers, and the money that was left over we put toward the iPads, McGovern said. Wednesday mornings training was voluntary and unpaid, but still drew about 50 teachers. Full training will be held during in-service days right before classes begin. After they got the pranking out of their system, the teachers watched as Murphy showed how the Apps work, and how students and teachers could share photos, documents and work through eBackpack, virtual storage space in an Internet cloud rather than on a hard disk, allowing access from any Internet-capable device. Teachers can hand out assignments, and students can turn in completed work, through the system, each using their own personal virtual backpack. Teachers will have access to student backpacks. The district controls Internet access, and apps can be downloaded only through the technology department. Students and teachers wont be able to indulge in Angry Birds or watch the World Series. The iPads do not replace desktop and laptop computers. But the pads, complete with video and still photo abilities, give students and teachers a mobility and versatility not available in the larger machines. Were scratching the surface with it, McGovern said, and were looking to be a prototype school.

curred in that area, the property owner can call a toll free number 800-922-1678 and ask for more information. We have really sophisticated mine maps that help us determine if a property is at risk, Witman said. The maps are not so precise as to pinpoint houses to the individual address, Witman said; even if they were, a house can be still be damaged when a subsidence occurs next door. But the data can be detailed enough to show one street may be at risk while another isnt. Insurance costs about 55 cents for every $1,000 of coverage; an average policy of $160,000 would cost $87.50 a year, or about $7 a month, according to the MIS website. The cost of not having insurance can be steep. The average damage is about $50,000, but claims have been paid in excess of $200,000. From July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011, MSI paid out $400,000 on 14 claims in Luzerne County. The website has an extensive frequently asked questions.

ers, theres cap on federal money available to states for welfare about $17 billion. A Romney ad Tuesday that accused Obama of quietly unraveling the work requirements was quickly slammed by the White House as dishonest. Former President Bill Clinton, the Democrat who signed the bipartisan welfare changes into law, came to Obamas defense. Then Wednesday morning the Republican National Committee put former 1990s House Speaker Newt Gingrich on a conference call with reporters. Gingrich had high praise for the former president while heaping disdain on Obama, whom he dubbed the anti-Clinton. The administration says its waiver plan was prompted by interest from the states, including Nevada and Utah, which have Republican governors. But, Mary-Sarah Kinner, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandovals press secretary, said Nevada had not and would not seek a waiver. Ally Isom, Utah Gov. Gary Herberts deputy chief of staff, acknowledged that Utah sought waivers but not from work requirements. The administration says work requirements are not on the table.

OPINION

Penn State lost another scholarship player on Wednesday. This time there is no imminent transfer to follow. Tight end Dakota Royer was not on the Nittany Lions updated preseason camp roster which was released Wednesday. The sophomore from Lancaster issued a statement to multiple outlets saying that he has left the team but will continue to attend Penn State to finish his degree. Unfortunately, due to Royer circumstances beyond my control, it is with great regret that I feel it necessary to remove myself from the team, Royer said. I want to thank my teammates for their support and camaraderie, as well as coach OBrien and his staff for the opportunity. I will exercise my rights from the NCAA and continue my education at Penn State, and plan to graduate in May. My best wishes go out to the team for a very successful football season. Royer becomes the 10th departure the ninth on scholarship from the team since NCAA sanctions were announced last month, though there is no indication the penalties played a role in his decision. A former four-star recruit out of Manheim Central High School, Royer got off to a rocky start in college before redshirting in his first year. Initially a linebacker, Royer had moved to tight end in Bill OBriens new offense. He came out of the spring as the third-stringer at the F tight end spot a hybrid position best suited for the most athletic big men. Royer opened camp with the Lions and participated in drills Monday morning in the teams first practice. He is the second tight end to leave the team, following junior Kevin Haplea, who has since transferred to Florida State. Even with Hapleas departure, however, Royer was still projected to be a reserve at the position. Garry Gilliam and Kyle Carter are in line for the most time at tight end. They are joined by true freshmen Jesse James and Brent Wilkerson as well as walk-ons Brian Irvin and Matt Lehman. Fifteen scholarship players

Felix highlights big day for Americans

LONDON No more heartbreak for Allyson Felix. No more silver, either. Denied twice on the worlds biggest stage, Felix won the Olympic gold medal shes been yearning for, taking the 200 meters Wednesday night to fill the last, and biggest, hole in her otherwise stellar resume. Felix won the race in 21.88

seconds, topping Jamaicas Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who won the 100 four nights earlier, by .21 seconds. American Carmelita Jeter added bronze to go with her silver in the 100 meters. I think it was all for a reason, Felix said. It kept me motivated and it made this moment very special. It was a big weight being lifted. She won easily, leaving nothing to chance or a coin flip that caused such a flap at Olympic trials as she hugged the line around the curve, then burst ahead of Fraser-Pryce with 40 meters to go and gave coach Bobby Kersee another gold medal to celebrate. Finishing fourth was Jamaicas VeronSee TRACK, Page 7B

HOW DO YOU mend a broken heart? By playing football, as far as the Philadelphia Eagles are concerned. And while the first game of the preseason tonight wont bring back the late son of Eagles coach Andy Reid, it will help the team take its mind off the tragedy. Well do this thing together, Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said earlier this week. Well pull through it together. Andy Reid couldnt do it alone. He just buried his oldest boy, 29-year-old Garrett Reid, who was found dead in his training camp dorm room at Lehigh University Sunday morning and was laid to rest Tuesday. But Reid was back at practice Wednesday, and will be on the sideline when the Eagles open the preseason against the Pittsburgh Steelers at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Lincoln Financial Field. Im a football coach. Thats what I do, Reid said upon returning following a two-day absence from the team. That may seem callous. Two days seems like too little time for the head coach to grieve before putting his full focus back on football. But Andy Reid told the team he coped with the tragedy through the soothing of his family. He now wants to calm the emotions of the Eagles. I feel their love, their comfort, Reid said. I want to make sure theyre OK, too. It would have been fine if Reid wanted more time away. Moving forward Reid spends countless hours, both during the season and away from it, planning schemes and practice schedules that will strengthen his football team. It doesnt display a lack of strength if he misses more than a few days of training camp. Or sits out a meaningless preseason game in which his starters are expected to play about a quarter. .Sure, he wants to evaluate some of the second-tier talent thatll eventually formulate his final roster for the regular season. There will be plenty of film of tonights game for Reid to do that. But he just couldnt stay away. I know in my heart, coaching (tonight) is the right thing to do, Reid said. I know my son wouldnt have wanted it any other way. Well move on. You wonder what moves football men to move forward when their personal lives knock them backwards. A day after his dad passed away, Brett Favre passed for 399 yards and four touchdowns for the Green Bay Packers. When he was coaching the Indianapolis Colts, Tony Dungy lost his son but won his only Super Bowl that season. Philadelphia fans are already wondering if the same is in store for Reids team. The Eagles say theyre dedicating this season to Garrett Reid, and quarterback Michael Vick says hes dedicating it to the head coach. But the job of toughing it out and playing football wont be easy for any of the Eagles this season. They realize that.

DETROIT Curtis Granderson snapped out of a short slump by hitting his 30th homer and driving in four runs, helping the New York Yankees beat Detroit Tigers 12-8 Wednesday night and ending the Tigers six-game winning streak. Down 7-0, the Tigers chased CC Sabathia and closed to 8-7 in the seventh inning. The AL East-leading Yankees, who had lost 12 of their previous 18 games, then pulled away. Granderson batted sixth for the first time since May 15 because he had two straight 0-for-5 games and just four hits in his previous 25 at-bats. The lineup shakeup seemed to work as he had an RBI single in the first, a home run in the third and a double in the seventh.
Rangers 10, Red Sox 9

strong innings and Shin-Soo Choo went 4-for-4 as Cleveland ended an 11-game losing streak. The Indians avoided tying the 1931 franchise record for consecutive losses. Cleveland, which was outscored 95-36 in the streak, won for the first time since July 26.

Nick Markakis and Mark Reynolds homered and Adam Jones had three hits for the Orioles, who have won five straight and eight of 10. It was Baltimores 60th victory of the season, compared to 69 all last year.
Rays 3, Blue Jays 2

BOSTON Adrian Beltre had a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the ninth inning after Texas blew a late four-run lead and the Rangers beat the Boston Red Sox 10-9 Wednesday. Josh Hamilton had three hits, a homer and four RBI for Texas, which couldnt hold a 9-5 edge before pulling out its sixth win in eight games.
Athletics 9, Angels 8

OAKLAND, Calif. Chris Carter hit a two-run homer to cap a five-run sixth inning and Oakland overcame a shaky outing by rookie Dan Straily. George Kottaras homered and Yoenis Cespedes added a two-run single for the As, who won the final two games of the series against their division rivals after losing the opener.
Indians 6, Twins 2

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. Alex Cobb pitched seven solid innings for Tampa Bay. The Rays clinched their 16th consecutive home series win over Toronto by winning the first two games of the threegame set. The longest such streak in AL history is 19, held by the New York Yankees against the St. Louis Browns from 1946-51. Cobb (6-8) allowed one run and five hits, striking out seven.

PHILADELPHIA Dan Uggla hit a tiebreaking threerun double in the seventh after Tim Hudson blew a five-run lead and the Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 12-6 Wednesday night. Ryan Howards three-run homer off Hudson during a five-run fifth tied it at 6, but the wild card-leading Braves scored four runs after Antonio Bastardo (2-4) got the first two outs in the seventh. Michael Bourn had three hits, including a two-run homer, and drove in three, and Uggla also had three hits. Chad Durbin (4-1) tossed a perfect sixth to earn the win. Hudson allowed six runs and six hits in 4 1-3 innings. It was his second-shortest outing of the season.
Pirates 7, Diamondbacks 6

an RBI double in the eighth, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to a three-game sweep with a 3-2 win Wednesday over the Cincinnati Reds. Jonathan Broxton (1-1) started the eighth with the Reds leading 2-1. He retired the first two batters before an infield single by Norichka Aoki. With Carlos Gomez up to bat, Aoki stole second and took third on catcher Dioner Navarros throwing error. Gomez hit a soft liner that just got over the outstretched glove of shortstop Wilson Valdez and Aoki scored to tie the game.

Five-run ninth helps Yanks top Wings


gle from Eduardo Nunez settled the scoring for the game. Chris Dickerson put the Yankees on the board early with a solo home run to left-centerfield off of Red Wings starter Shairon Martis for a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning. Former Scranton/WilkesBarre Yankee Matt Carson answered with a two-run home run of his own in the bottom of the first inning, for a 2-1 lead. In the top of the seventh, Melky Mesa crushed his second home run of the year over the left field wall, knotting the score at 2-2. Clete Thomas long solo shot to right-center gave Rochester a 3-2 advantage heading into the ninth. Mike OConnor got the no-decision for the Yankees in his longest outing since shutting out Norfolk as a member of the Columbus Clippers on August 6, 2008. The lefty tossed 6 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on just three hits, while striking out seven and not walking a batter. Following the Carson homer in the bottom of the first he retired 18 batters in a row before allowing a single off the bat of Chris Parmelee in the bottom of the seventh. Juan Cedeno picked up the win for the Yankees and Ryota Igarashi earned his eighth save. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Rochester conclude the set tonight at 7:05 with John Maine takes the hill for the Yankees and P.J. Walters going for Rochester. This will be Walters second appearance against the Yankees this season, with the other coming on July 1 when he gave up three runs over four innings. It

The MAC released its preseason Coaches poll on Wednesday and its no surprise that four-time defending conference champion Delaware Valley was picked by the coaches to repeat as league champion receiving 77 total points and six first-place points. The last time the Aggies did not win the league title was in 2007. Wilkes is the highest ranked local school coming in at sixth receiving 47 points. The Colonels are coming off a 4-5 overall record with a 4-4 mark in the MAC. Kings received 21 points in the poll and is tied for eighth with FDU-Florham. Both teams struggled to 1-9 overall marks in 2011 and with identical 1-7 records in the conference. The Monarchs lone win of the season came against last years conference newcomer, Stevenson. FDUs lone victory came against Kings.

This seasons fresh team is Misericordia University, which debuts on the poll as No. 10 receiving nine points. The Cougars will begin their inaugural season on Sept. 1 with an away game against Gettysburg. Their first conference contest is at Lebanon Valley on Sept. 8. Misericordias first home game in school history comes on Sept. 15 against Widener. Every team in the conference opens on Sept. 1 with Kings at William Paterson and Wilkes at Morrisville among the contests. The Monarchs home opener is the following week against Widener, while Wilkes waits until Week 3 for its first home game taking on Widener. Widener (71 points), Lycoming (70), Albright (50) and Lebanon Valley (50) round out the top five teams in the preseason poll.

ter, Penn States true freshmen will get a long look in preseason camp to see if they can contribute right away. Wyoming Valley West and Meyers product Eugene Lewis falls into that group, especially after top receiver Justin Brown left for Oklahoma. Wednesdays roster update also came with uniform numbers for the rookies. Lewis will wear No. 16 for the Lions. Though Penn State will have names on the backs of their jer-

seys this season, there are actually two receivers named E. Lewis on the squad Eugene and fifth-year senior Evan (No. 4). Valley Views Nyeem Wartman, a true freshman linebacker, will wear No. 5. From Red Sox to black shoes Nine freshmen walk-ons were also listed on the new roster, six of them who played high school ball in Pennsylvania. One of those six is Reynolds Renny

Parthemore, now a punter and formerly a pitcher in the Boston Red Sox organization. Parthemore played at Cedar Cliff High School for former Valley West coach Jim Cantafio but pursued a baseball career after being drafted in the 18th round by the Sox in 2009. He was released in April. Penn State is looking for a new starting punter after Anthony Fera transferred to Texas.

Mulhern and Breck nodded their approval to give Weiscarger the make without an attempt a decision Weiscarger called very generous. Joeys a good putter, Mulhern said. It was 10 inches (from the hole), if that. Hed never miss that, Breck said. Breck just missed his own attempt at sending the championship to another hole. But he rolled another 20-foot putt a tad too hard, as the ball lipped out and finally settled the score. It just hit the back of the hole, Breck said. I thought it was in. Should have been in. But thats golf. And thats how the Potentates highly-competitive championship match was finally settled. John gave me the putt for the 4 (score), Weiscarger said. They hit the hole and (the ball) came out. They got 5 (on the card), we got 4.

My first win here, so its nice, said Weiscarger, who has also captured the Wyoming Valley and Fox Hill tournaments in previous years. I feel very fortunate. Favorable fortune had with the outcome for the winners. Instead, it was pure putting that decided the tourneys championship match. Weiscarger was so close to the hole on an approach shot he was awarded a birdie, while Brecks bid at matching that feat barely bounced out. That only highlighted a tournament of crucial and incredible play from the green. Or anywhere near it. Brand hit a beauty of a 40-foot chip for birdie on the 18th and final hole Sunday to force two overtime holes after hard rains Sunday drenched, delayed and eventually caused the suspension of the match with darkness setting

in. Oh, we felt good coming up 18 1-up, Breck said. The teams picked up Wednesday by starting their third playoff hole on No. 1 where Weiscargers 12-foot putt saved the hole and had him pumping his fist. Yeah, I was excited, Weiscarger said. Hes always tough, Brand said of his partner. Hes skilled and always tough. Then it was Brands turn to hit

the tough shot. Again. He sank an incredible putt from the lip of the green for birdie on No. 3. But Breck answered with a nifty, downhill 20-footer of his own, forcing a sixth playoff hole. My partner was terrific in the clutch, Weiscarger said. Chick is one of the best putters in the area. If hes around the green, hes dangerous. If it wasnt for his putts on 2 and 3, we wouldnt have made it to four. Once they did, Weiscargers

Course was Ian Poulter, facing the prospect of missing out on the Ryder Cup team, and Graeme McDowell, in Sunday contention at the last two majors and hopeful the outcome at the PGA Championship will be different. The major that bills itself as Glorys Last Shot felt more like a pop quiz. Rain has pounded Kiawah Island throughout the week, and it got so bad Wednesday that play was suspended because of storms before anyone teed off. It has led to limited practice time on the one course where players really need it. This is the first time South Carolina has hosted a major championship. Kiawah Island had the Ryder Cup in 1991, so long ago that Jose Maria Olazabal is the only player at the PGA Championship who played in the matches. And hes only in the field as the European captain. McDowell, Scott and Tiger Woods were among those who came to Kiawah last week for a look at the Pete Dye design, though all of them remarked that 2 inches of rain had fallen the night before and it was soft. Not much has changed a week later. The last couple of days have been very difficult from a preparation standpoint, McDowell said. The golf course has taken a lot of rain. It seems to drain extremely well, though. But theres no doubt, this golf course is a long course, and this little bit of rain is going to make it play longer, and certainly is changing the dynamic of it as we speak. Then, he headed out for an emergency nine, one last chance to see the stretch of holes that could determine the winner. Its going to be busy this afternoon, he said. Guys are scrambling around to get their preparation done. Thankfully, I feel like I have done enough so far. At most majors, practice

rounds are busy Monday and Tuesday, with mostly work on the practice range on the eve of the championship, perhaps nine holes in the morning. It was a little strange to prepare not your typical week leading up to a major, Stewart Cink said late Wednesday afternoon. But it was fine. We could get enough work in. Everybody is in the same boat, so it will be all right. No one is sure what to expect at Kiawah, the longest course in major championship history at 7,676 yards, depending on how they set it up. The nines on the Ocean Course are divided by the clubhouse and practice range the front nine is to the north and cuts through marshes, the back nine to the south, about a mile away from the ninth green, and featuring majestic views of the Atlantic Ocean beyond the dunes and sea oats. The course looks wide open, although typical of a Dye design, it forces players to look at trouble without realizing theres more room than meets the eye. The last time Kiawah was in a major spotlight the 91 Ryder Cup the course was new and ragged around the edges, the wind picked up and it was pure survival. Hale Irwin had a 41 on the back nine and still won the decisive point for a U.S. victory, but only after Bernhard Langer missed a 6-foot par putt. That anguish on his face epitomized the emotions of the Ryder Cup. The question is whether it becomes a product of Kiawah Island. The hazards are plenty 27 of the 86 acres that make up the Ocean Course are sandy areas, not to mention the water, the oppressive heat and humidity and mosquitos that do most of their damage in the morning. Darren Clarke was among those who got in a quick nine Wednesday morning, before a burst of showers. Walking off the 18th green, he wiped a small streak of blood from his wrist where he had killed a mosquito.

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

With heavy heart Reid back at camp


Coach returned to Lehigh University for training camp one day after burying his oldest son.
By Jeff McLane The Philadelphia Inquirer

BETHLEHEM Saying that he knew in his heart it was time and that his son Garrett "wouldnt have wanted it any other way," a "humbled" Andy Reid returned to the Eagles on Wednesday. The Eagles coach returned to training camp three days after Garrett Reid, 29, was found dead in his Lehigh University dormitory room. Reid, his wife, Tammy, and their four

other children buried Garrett on Tuesday. More than 900 people, including many from the Eagles and NFL communities, attended the funeral service at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Broomall. "Im a humble man standing before you, very humble man," Reid said, his voice cracking, at the outset of an 18-minute news conference that did not include a single football question. "Im humble because of the outpouring not only the media, but our football team, from the fans. It was unbelievable." Garrett Reid, who had been assisting the Eagles strength and conditioning coaching staff for the last few years, was pronounced dead after a team official

made a 911 call Sunday morning. Lehigh police said that there was no indication of suicide or foul play. Autopsy results are pending, although the Reids acknowledged in a statement on Mondaythattheirsonhadlosthisongoing battle with drug addiction. Reid was asked how he knew that to be the case and if he had already seen the Northampton County coroners autopsy results. "Im going to let all that take its course," Reid said. Autopsy results are still pending, and it could be weeks before a toxicology report is made public. Reid equated his sons struggle with addiction to "fighting a grizzly bear," he said. "Its hard to win." While Garrett Reids ad-

diction consumed the family for nearly a decade rehab stints, several prison stays Andy Reid said that he would most remember the friendship he had developed with his son as he became an adult. "He taught me a lot of lessons in life that Ill use down the road," Reid said. "Youll always remember the smile and the jokester that he was. You remember those things. Those help you get through the good and the bad times."

Preseason kicks off tonight with RG3, Luck debuts


By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer

Yep, thats Peyton Manning wearing No. 18 and throwing passes. The uniform might look strange, though. And yes, thats a female line judge making calls in the Green Bay at San Diego game. As for those two good-looking youngsters with the Colts and Redskins, theyre the top picks from this years draft making their NFL debuts. The first full weekend of preseason games kicks off tonight with Manning leading the Denver Broncos at Chicago, his first action since the playoffs after the 2010 season for the once-indestructible quarterback. On the same night, Shannon Eastin makes history when she officiates in the Packers-Chargers matchup on national television, no less. Eastin is one of the replacement officials hired by the league while the regulars are locked out after their contract with the NFL expired. Also tonight, second overall selection Robert Griffin III leads the Redskins at Buffalo. Top overall pick QB Andrew Luck must wait until Sunday for the Colts first exhibition game, at home against St. Louis. The rest of tonights night schedule has New Orleans, al-

On Friday, its the Super Bowl champion New York Giants at Jacksonville; the New York Jets at Cincinnati; Tampa Bay at Miami; Arizona at Kansas City; Cleveland at Detroit: and Minnesota at San Francisco. Saturdays matchups have Houston at Carolina and Tennessee at Seattle. Dallas at Oakland finishes off the weekend on Monday night.

Extra spice in this game comes from the 42-year-old Eastins debut. I believe I am ready, said Eastin, a referee in the MEAC (FCS division). Im a realistic person and I know what is realistic for me.

Browns Richardson to have knee examined


The Associated Press

CLEVELAND Trent Richardsons ailing left knee may be more seriously injured than the Cleveland Browns thought. The team issued a one-sentence statement Wednesday saying that the running back, picked No. 3 overall in Aprils draft, will see a specialist on Thursday. The statement says: Trent Richardson is traveling to Pensacola, Fla., where he will have his left knee further evaluated by Dr. James Andrews tomorrow. Richardson had arthroscopic surgery on the knee Feb. 3, which caused him to miss some portions of the NFL combine before the draft. Minnesota Vikings MANKATO, Minn. The Minnesota Vikings are aiming to put Adrian Peterson in for some exhibition game carries before they clear him for the regularseason opener. In order to get to that point, the star running back will have to start practicing. That could come next week. The coaching and medical staffs will evaluate Petersons left knee after the Vikings return from San Francisco, the site of their first preseason game Friday night. Coach Leslie Frazier said Petersons pushing to join the team for practice has been never ending, but Peterson said Wednesday hes let up on his lobbying. The date that matters most is Sept. 9, when the Vikings play Jacksonville to start the season. Frazier said again theres no indication Peterson wont be

Terrell Owens has completed his first practice back in the NFL as a member of the Seattle Seahawks, a workout that featured some impressive catches and getting slammed to the turf by a new teammate. Owens spoke before a huge throng of media following Wednesdays practice. Owens says hes changed a lot in the past two years since his last NFL stop with Cincinnati. Owens spent the 2011 season out of the NFL and signed with Seattle after a tryout Monday. He participated in most drills during the two-hour practice wearing No. 10. Owens did get wrestled to the ground by cornerback Brandon Browner during a one-on-one drill, when Owens attempted to run through the big cornerback but Browner wouldnt let him go. Oakland Raiders NAPA, Calif. The Oakland Raiders expressed relief that running back Mike Goodson is only dealing with a bit of soreness a day after being hospitalized with a neck injury following a scary training camp hit. Goodson is back with the team but did not come out to Wednesdays practice. Coach Dennis Allen says he doesnt know when Goodson will be back but does not anticipate it taking as long as a few weeks.

LONDON Misty MayTreanor danced on the sand and then off it, leaving Horse Guards Parade with Kerri Walsh Jennings and a third gold medal. Playing in the Summer Games together for the last time, the twice-defending champions extended their unbeaten streak to 21 in a row through Athens, Beijing and now London by defeating Jennifer Kessy and April Ross 21-16, 21-16 in an all-American final on Wednesday night. The match started with nearby Big Ben pealing the hour

and ended with the Star-Spangled Banner rising from the iconic venue in the Prime Ministers backyard, just down the Mall from the royal residence at Buckingham Palace. Playing on Henry VIIIs former jousting tiltyard, with the current Prince Harry in the crowd, Walsh Jennings and May-Treanor continued their reign as champions of the beach. Its insane. It doesnt feel like its real, Walsh Jennings said. I told Misty when we were getting our medals: If I wake up tomorrow and we have to replay this match, Im going to be furious. Because it feels like Im in a dream. It truly feels surreal and it

didnt feel like that the first two times for whatever reason. But this, its almost too good to be true. Dominating the sport for three Olympiads, Walsh Jen-

nings and May-Treanor have won every match theyve ever played at the Summer Games and lost just one of 43 sets. No one had ever won even two beach volleyball gold med-

als before the Americans won their second straight in Beijing. No woman had ever won three Olympic beach volleyball medals of any kind. I know how hard it is to win one tournament. And the amount of tournaments theyve won is crazy, said Kessy, who jumped for joy on the medal podium after she and Ross won silver in their Olympic debuts. For them to do it for years and years and to be on top is just really impressive. We learn a lot from them. Earlier Wednesday, Brazils Juliana and Larissa beat Xue Chen and Zhang Xi of China to win the bronze. Brazils Emanuel and Alison were scheduled to play Julius Brink and Jonas Reckermann of Germany in the mens goldmedal match on Thursday night.

U.S. setter Donald Suxho bent over with his hands on his knees and shook his head as Italy celebrated the win at Earls Court. And after shaking hands with the Italians, the Americans turned to applaud the many U.S. fans in the crowd.

CYCLING - BMX

Two spectacular crashes marred the start of the BMX competition, and time trial world champion Caroline Buchanan of Australia and Raymon van der Biezen of the Netherlands posted the best times of the seeding runs. On the challenging course sitting next to the London Velodrome, American rider Brooke Crain crashed in the home stretch in a section made of a succession of small jumps. She managed to get back on her bike to cross the finish line but officially was listed as not finishing. If shes able to continue, she would be given the 16th and final seed. Latvian rider Edzus Treimanis also went down on the track at the same spot, falling face first.

WRESTLING

LONDON After leaving the most important decision of her career up to her persuasive mother, Brittney Reese knew there was only one place to start looking when it was time to celebrate her Olympic gold medal in the long jump. Reese claimed one of the three gold medals the U.S. track and field team won Wednesday night at the London Games, becoming the first American woman to win the Olympic long jump title since Jackie Joyner-Kersee in 1988. Its a surreal moment, she said. I got very emotional you do when youre representing your country.

My mom and aunt are here, so this is a great moment for me and my family. Within the space of a half hour at the packed, 80,000-seat Olympic stadium, Allyson Felix finally won the 200-meter title that had eluded her at Athens and Beijing, Aries Merritt won the110-meter hurdles gold medal and Reese won the long jump. The two-time world champion went into the competition with the best jump of the season and put down the best mark in the final with 23 feet, 4 1-2 inches (7.12 meters) on her second attempt. Russias Elena Sokolova took the silver medal at 23-2 1-2 (7.07) and Janay Deloach earned the bronze for the United States at 22-71-4 (6.89). It was a major achievement

for Reese, who could easily have been lost to track and field. She was considering offers for basketball scholarships when her mother, Carla Young, made a fateful decision for her: Stick with track and field, at the University of Mississippi. My mom fell in love with Ole Miss and they were still in contact with me while I was in my community college, Reese said. I sat down with her and she told me track is what I needed to do and Mamma knows best, so thats what I did. Now that shes the reigning Olympic and world champion indoors and out and is third all-time in the U.S. behind Joyner-Kersee and Marion Jones in terms of longest jumps she could be excused for thinking about another career change. But thats not likely before the 2016 Games in Rio.

LONDON As the shot fell through the net, Kobe Bryant held up three fingers on each hand. It was his third straight 3pointer in the fourth quarter, enough for the U.S. mens Olympic team to finally put away stubborn Australia. Yes, alls fine with Bryant, and the Americans gold medal hopes, as well. Bryant silenced his critics and broke open a tight game with six 3-pointers in the second half Wednesday night as the U.S. advanced to the semifinals of the London Games with a 119-86 victory over Australia. Somebody made him mad. I could see it in his eyes, American Kevin Durant said. I wanted him to kind of turn it on and thats what he did. On a night when LeBron James had a triple-double, the story was Bryants awakening from his Olympic slumber. The five-time NBA champion has even said this team could have beaten the Dream Team, and on the 20th anniversary of that squads gold medal win, he put on the kind of show that makes his claim hard to dismiss. Bryant scored all of his 20 points after halftime, finally delivering the kind of game expected of him in London. He had insisted his time would come, and none of his teammates ever doubted it. I kind of knew what button to push with him. I was talking to him at halftime and in the third quarter and I guess I pushed the button. He woke up and to see that, Ive been on the other side of the ball and had that situation before, teammate Carmelo Anthony said.

Bryant, a top-five scorer in NBA history, brushed away Anthonys attempts to take credit as easily NEXT as the quesGAME tions hes been hearing in LonUnited States vs. don. Argentina He was just WHEN: 4 saying, Lets p.m., today see what we TV: NBC see during the Sports season. But by Network that point, I was already revved up, Bryant said. James finished with 11 points, 14 rebounds and 12 assists for the Americans, who advanced to their third straight Olympic semifinal meeting with Argentina, which beat Brazil earlier Wednesday. Deron Williams added 18 points, Anthony had 17 and Durant 14. The Americans beat the Argentines 126-97 on Monday in the final game of pool play, yet another night they didnt need much from Bryant, who came in averaging just 9.4 points and hearing whispers that something must be wrong with him, though both he and his teammates kept assuring people there was no problem. This time was different eventually after Bryant misfired on all four shots in the first half. Just kind of searching for something to get me going, for something that would activate the Black Mamba, as Coach calls it, Bryant said. That came when Australia scored the first 11 points of the second half, cutting the Americans lead to three after back-toback 3-pointers by Joe Ingles. The U.S. lead was only six before Bryant, who had never gotten in an offensive rhythm in London and just minutes earlier had committed another puzzling offensive foul, finally broke out.

ica Campbell-Brown, who defeated Felix in the Athens and Beijing Games and was trying to become the first woman to win the same individual track and field event in three consecutive Olympics. Instead, the Americans were the ones celebrating three straight, their own 15 minutes of fame: Felix, followed quickly by Aries Merritt in the 110 hurdles and Brittney Reese in the long jump. We are always aware of what the medal count is, said Jason Richardson, who finished second to Merritt in the hurdles as part of a seven-medal day at the track for the United States. I know track and field can ... let the world know the Americans are the best track and field country. The Americans head into the last four days of the Olympics with 20 medals at the track 10 away from fulfilling their Project 30 aspirations for the London Games. Felix certainly did her part. Shes been trying very hard for this moment, said Jeter, who became the first U.S. woman to medal in both sprints since Florence Griffith-Joyner in 1988. When I gave her a hug, thats exactly what I told her: Youve waited for this moment. In 2011, Felix and her coach, Bobby Kersee Joyner-Kersees husband harbored visions of an Olympic double in the 200 and 400 meters. That turned out to be misguided, and at the world championships, Felix settled for silver in the 400 and an uncharacteristic bronze in the 200. So they decided on a different double the 100 and 200 and it wound up causing them an unexpected dose of trouble. It was the third-place tie in 100-meter qualifying at U.S. trials earlier this summer that hovered over Felixs run-up to these Olympics forcing her to defend herself off the track for the first time in an otherwisepristine career. Her tie with Jeneba Tarmoh for the third and final spot in the 100 forced USA Track and Field officials to scramble for a solution. One possibility was a coin flip; instead, they settled on a run-off. But Tarmoh begged off. Felix, admittedly not a serious medal contender for the 100, had to defend her decision not to give up the spot, and she went on

A long list of Games losers


IT WASNT EXACTLY a race to celebrate back home, though Rene Herrera of the Philippines did manage to set a personal best in a mens 5,000-meter heat Wednesday at the Olympic stadium. That he finished dead last, 43 seconds behind the next finisher hardly mattered. He was an Olympian, even if the Olympics offer a most uneven playing field for most countries. There are 204 of them in London 11 more than in the United Nations and most will go home losers. While the U.S. and China dominate the medal tables, 128 countries have yet to win one and probably wont. That includes the Philippines, which hasnt won a medal since boxer Mansueto Velasco got a silver in 1996 in Atlanta. The list of losers at this Olympics is long, indeed, but it goes far beyond the medals table: DOWN, DOWN UNDER: If theres anything that makes the British as happy as seeing their country hauling in Olympic medals, its making fun of Australia for its dismal performance in London. Australia which averaged 16 golds the last three games had only five gold medals through Wednesday, prompting the countrys sports minister to concede a medals bet with her British counterpart with five days left for the games. FRENCH WHEELS: Theres no loser like a sore loser. The French were having a hard enough time digesting Britains dominance when they fell for a line from British cycling chief Dave Brailsford that the country had specially round wheels on its bikes. French cycling officials were so suspicious of the fast British times, they called for a close look at the British bikes and their magic wheels. U.S. BOXERS: Miserable in Beijing, horrible in London. They used to steal medals from U.S. boxers, but now theyre so bad theres no need. There were nine U.S. men competing in Olympic boxing the most of any country and they couldnt bring home a single medal for the first time in history. WOMEN BOXERS: Theyre stealing the show in London, but theyre still struggling to get respect. While men compete in nine different weight classes, women are consigned to just three, meaning some must gain or lose considerable weight to fit into a category. Thats largely because the IOC doesnt want to add more athletes to the games, but the same organization has approved a full field for golf, of all things, at the 2016 Rio Games. LOLO JONES: Her Olympic disappointment in Beijing where she was leading before hitting a hurdle late would have been enough for any athlete. But London was especially cruel, even though she had a season-best time in finishing fourth in the 100-meter hurdles. Jones wasnt unhappy

to finish fifth. The three heats in the Olympic 100, she said, were the perfect tuneup for the race she really wanted to win. Everyone just expected me to give up this spot, because I think lots of people ... know me and they know that Im seen as this very nice girl, Felix said with a chuckle a few days before the start of track and field in London. But its not just about me. On this night, though, it was. Twice before, Felix came into the Olympics on even footing, or even a slight favorite, against Campbell-Brown. Both times, the American ended up disappointed and the last time in Beijing, choking back tears, she called it deja vu, and not in a good way. This time, there would be no regrets, and nobody can say Felix didnt earn it. Also in the race were the Olympic champions at 100 (Fraser-Pryce) and 400 (Sanya Richards-Ross), the two-time defending Olympic champion at 200 (Campbell-Brown) and the reigning world champion at 100 meters (Jeter). Mens 110-meter hurdles ered a favorite to make the Berlin squad. A week before the Olympic Trials, he pulled a leg muscle after cramping up from a long drive from Plymouth to the AAU Championships in Princeton, N.J. He was not able to participate at the qualifiers, and Owens became a national hero when he won four gold medals in Berlin. It was just an unfortunate injury, Johnson said, in a 1984 interview with The Times Leader. You cant get carried away with what might have been. You think of it as, thats life. It just happens ` that way, particularly in the sprint. It doesnt last very long when you think of all the hours of preparation. He was considered a favorite for the 1940 Summer Games in Helsinki before World War II cancelled the event. Johnsons Olympic dreams would come to an end when the war took the 1944 Games.

LONDON Aries Merritts hurdling career started on a dare. It took off with a technical change. And it peaked with a gold medal Wednesday night. The 27-year-old Merritt led a 1-2 finish for the United States in the 110-meter hurdles at the London Olympics, winning in 12.92 seconds. World champion Jason Richardson was second in 13.04. Hansle Parchment of Jamaica took the bronze in 13.12. Defending champion Dayron Robles of Cuba pulled up midway through the race, clutching his right hamstring. Merritt and Richardson gave the U.S. its first gold-silver finish in the event since 1996, when Allen Johnson and Mark Crear claimed the top two spots in Atlanta. No American had won gold since. Ive worked so hard for this moment and who knows if Ill ever get this chance again? Merritt said. Its a once-in-a-lifetime moment and Im just kind of living it. Im the champion. It still hasnt sunk in yet that Im Olympic champion. Im still in shock. He should have seen it coming. Everyone else did, even his

high school track coach about a dozen years ago. Decathlon LONDON After Ashton Eatons big first day in the Olympic decathlon, he was far more interested in sleep. And with good reason. His day began Wednesday by breaking Bill Toomeys 44-yearold Olympic record in the decathlon 100-meter dash, finishing in 10.35 seconds. He ended it with a solid performance in the 400, bursting across the line in 46.90. In between, Eaton was first in the long jump, 11th in the shot put and second in the high jump. But he didnt stay around long to chat about medals or world-record possibilities. He was off in a hurry. Gotta go, he said after the evening session. Early morning. The American put himself in position not only to break the Olympic record, but to give himself an outside chance at topping his own world mark. After five events, Eaton has a 220-point advantage over fellow American Trey Hardee.

letes, flashed during American tracks golden era in the1930s. He quickly became known as the Columbia Comet for his unworldly talent on the Ivy League schools track team. Seen as one of the top sprinters in the world, Johnson had four opportunities for Olympic qualification that came up short. Local donations sent him to Palo Alto, Calif. for the 1932 Olympic trials. The 17-year old Plymouth High School junior placed fourth in the 200 dash one spot short of qualifying for the Los Angeles games. By 1936, Johnson had defeated American sprinters Jesse Owens, Ralph Metcalfe and Eulace Peacock at several Indoor AAU championships, and was consid-

He became a world-record holder in two events during a famed 1937 European tour. He broke the mark in the 100-yard dash in Germany. He ran a worldrecord-breaking 100-meter dash of 10.2 seconds in Germany and France. Johnsons most notable feat came at the 1938 Millrose Games in Madison Square Garden. He tied his world record in the 60yard dash with a 6.2-second clip before breaking it twice with 6.1and 6-second runs. According to the Columbia University Athletics website, timers dismissed his 5.9-second time because they did not think it was humanly possible to run that fast. The Columbia Comet made headlines in 1935 when he publicly clashed with the AAU head and former New York Supreme Court Justice Jeremiah T. Mahoney over a boycott of the Berlin Games.

According to the Ivy League, Johnson told Columbia students compared the treatment of blacks in the South to the Nazis persecution of Jews in Germany. It is futile and hypocritical that Judge Mahoney should attempt to clean up conditions in Germany before cleaning up similar conditions in America, Johnson said in the Columbia Spectator. Following his athletic career, Johnson spent his career in public service. He served in World War II in the Army, and became a commander of the 70th Transportation Truck battalion in Korea. He retired from the military at the rank of a colonel, and taught as a professor of military science at Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Mo. He worked as a bureau director for the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare until retirement. In December of1992, he passed away at the age of 72.

with her race, but she broke down during an appearance on NBCs Today show when asked about published reports suggesting she was a shameless marketer of herself, more image than substance. They should be supporting our U.S. Olympic athletes and instead they just ripped me to shreds, Jones said tearfully. KOBE BRYANT: Wheres Kobe? Everywhere it seems but on the basketball court. Bryant has been enjoying his Olympics, watching tennis at Centre Court at Wimbledon, seeing the U.S. womens basketball team beat up on other countries and sitting with his family at the pool when Michael Phelps was swimming. But the player who was counted on to carry the U.S. team in Beijing has been a no-show on the court, where he looks a step slow and out of sync with the rest of the U.S. superstars. Entering Wednesday, he was averaging only about 9 points and is the only player on Team USA shooting under 40 percent. BIGGEST DOPES: Alex Schwazer, the 2008 Olympic race walk champion from Italy, was in tears back in Rome after being expelled from the Olympics for doping. Schwazer said he bought blood booster EPO in Turkey and kept it hidden from his wife, figure skater Carolina Kostner, and his parents in a box of vitamins in a refrigerator. He said he injected it every day, hoping it would help him win another gold. GOING HOME: Of all the reasons to be sent home, former 100-meter world champion Kim Collins had one thats hard to beat. Collins was banned from the St. Kitts and Nevis team for missing training sessions, but said he was punished for spending time with his wife. LOCHTE LAGS: Kind of hard to say a guy who won five medals is a loser. But Ryan Lochte came to London declaring that it was his time to dominate, and he won only one gold medal in an individual event. Lochte beat Michael Phelps in their first big matchup, but Phelps came back to win their second meeting and was once again the biggest medal winner on the U.S. swim team. BRITISH ECONOMY: London retailers are finding out what every host city discovers when the Olympics come to town: They were sold a bill of goods about the economic benefits of the games. Almost nightly, the BBC sends out a reporter to tourist areas to see just how bad things are, and almost nightly shopkeepers and pub operators complain that the Olympics are scaring away regular tourists.

Irish QB battle down to just 2


Golson and Hendrix are 1A, 1B according to ND coach Brian Kelly.
By RICK GANO AP Sports Writer

SOUTH BEND, Ind. Everett Golsons first season at Notre Dame was spent running the Irishs scout team. It was a good learning experience and a chance to mature in the whirlwind of a big-time football program. He acknowledges it was also a bit humbling. Its time to get back to what I know I can do, Golson said Wednesday. What he knows how to do is move the football, either with his legs as a breakaway runner or with a strong arm that saw him throw for more than 11,000 yards and 151 TDs as a prep star in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Now hes in the running to be the Irishs starter and has emerged from a four-quarterback derby as a front runner, along with Andrew Hendrix. Coach Brian Kelly said the two QBs are getting an even amount of reps in practice, even though Golson got more work with the first team Wednesday when re-

porters were allowed to watch the entire workout. Its 1-A, 1-B. Both have made great progress, Kelly said. The competition took on a new twist when Tommy Rees, who is 12-4 as a starter the last two seasons, was arrested following a scuffle with police as he fled an offcampus party in May. Rees was suspended for the Irishs Sept. 1 season opener against Navy in Dublin, Ireland, and although in uniform did very little in practice Wednesday in terms of participating in the drills. Gunner Kiel, a freshman and a top recruit, is No. 3 right now. Golson, Hendrix and Kiel all made a point Wednesday of saying how helpful Rees has been in helping them learn the intricacies and formations in Kellys spread offense. Well be talking in the room and hes like, you know, if you need anything, Im here for you, said Golson, who is Rees roommate during camp. Thats how it is with this whole unit, not only just with Tommy. ... Even though this is a competition, we also help each other out.

AUSTIN, Texas Court documents filed Wednesday by U.S. anti-doping officials in their case against Lance Armstrong include a recent interview given by the head of the International Cycling Union saying his agency is not involved in the dispute and will wait for the outcome. The filing is the latest twist in a fight pitting the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency against Armstrong and UCI officials over who has jurisdiction to pursue a drug case against the seven-time Tour de France winner. The documents highlight an apparent contradiction on the part of UCI, cyclings governing body. Armstrong, who denies doping, and UCI officials now argue USADA does not have jurisdiction. And Armstrong is suing in U.S. federal court to block the case. A hearing before Judge Sam Sparks is scheduled Friday. USADA filed a transcript of a July 11 interview UCI

head Pat McQuaid gave to Belgian media outlet Sporza, saying UCI has nothing to do with the investigation. The position of UCI is that were not involved in this, and its a USADA investigation, McQuaid said according to the transcript. Theyre doing all the process in the United States. Its nothing to do with UCI, and well wait and see what the eventual outcome is. But just two days later, McQuaid and UCI tried to assert control over the case, telling USADA officials that the Switzerland-based cycling group has jurisdiction and USADA does not. In a letter to USADA, McQuaid questioned whether evidence has been unfairly withheld from Armstrong and whether witnesses were given incentives to make incriminating statements against him. USADA claims it has jurisdiction, citing UCI rules, the U.S. Olympic Committee and the World Anti-Doping Agency. Wednesdays court filings renewed USADAs claims that because Armstrong applied for his professional cycling license through USA Cycling, he is bound by USADA drug testing and arbitration protocols.

U.S. homeowners are getting better about keeping up with their mortgage payments, driving the percentage of borrowers who have fallen behind to a three-year low, according to a new report. Some 5.49 percent of the nations mortgage holders were behind on their payments by 60 days or more in the April-to-June period, the agency said. The second-quarter delinquency rate is down from 5.82 percent in the same period last year, and below the 5.78 percent rate for the first three months of 2012.

Seeking hardier breeds and seeds


By DAVID PITT Associated Press

Fannie Mae earned $2.2 billion from April through June, its second quarterly gain in net income since being taken over by the government during the 2008 financial crisis. Fannie said Wednesday that it paid a dividend of $2.9 billion to the Treasury Department and sought no additional aid. The company received about $116 billion from the Treasury Department, the most expensive bailout of a single company. It has so far repaid about $26 billion.

DES MOINES, Iowa Cattle are being bred with genes from their African cousins who are accustomed to hot weather. New corn varieties are emerging with larger roots for gathering water in a drought. Across American agriculture, farmers and crop scientists have concluded that its too late to fight climate change. They need to adapt to it with a new generation of hardier animals and plants specially engineered to survive, and even thrive, in intense heat, with little rain. The single largest limitation for agriculture worldwide is drought, said Andrew Wood, a professor of plant

physiology and molecular biology at Southern Illinois University. On his Kansas farm, Clay Scott is testing a new kind of corn called Droughtguard as his region suffers through a second consecutive growing season with scarce precipitation. Developed by St. Louis-based Monsanto and German-based BASF, Droughtguard is a combination of the best drought-tolerant seed. The urgency is also evident in Texas, where rainfall has been below normal since 1996. Crops and pastures were decimated in 2011 by a searing drought, and some got hit again this year. Ranchers have sold off many animals they couldnt graze or afford to feed. Cattle inventory, at 97.8 million

head as of July 1, is the smallest since the U.S. Department of Agriculture began a July count in 1973. Ron Gill, a rancher who also heads the animal science department at Texas A&M University, said research has been under way for years to develop cattle that can withstand heat and grow on lower-quality forage. Last year, he started incorporating into his herd Beefmaster cattle, a cross between Brahman cattle, which originated in India, and European breeds that include Herefords and Shorthorns. Hes also experimenting with the appropriately named Hotlanders, a Texas breed developed for its heat tolerance using genetics from Senepol cows bred in the Virgin Islands.

NEW YORK Got an iPhone? Youre in the minority. There were four Android phones for every iPhone shipped in the second quarter, research firm IDC said Wednesday. Thats up from a ratio of 2.5 to 1 in the same period last year. The success of Samsungs Android phones helped Googles operating system extend its dominance in the smartphone market. Samsung and other phone makers shipped nearly 105 million Android smartphones in the April-June quarter, giving Android 68 percent of the worldwide market, up from 47 percent last year. The gains came largely at the expense of BlackBerry phones made by Research in Motion Ltd. and Symbian phones made largely by Nokia. Each saw its market share drop below 5 percent. Nokia is now making phones that use Microsofts Windows system. The market share for Apples iPhone, powered by its iOS software, fell slightly to 17 percent, from 19 percent. But the company shipped more iPhones than a year ago. Apple still dominates in tablet computers, with 68 percent of the market in the second quarter, according to IDC. Google is trying to close the gap with its own branded Android tablet, the Nexus 7. Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble have made some inroads with lowercost tablets that run modified versions of Android. According to IDC, Samsung accounted for 44 percent of all Android phones in the second quarter and shipped more Android phones than the next seven Android phone makers combined.

U.S. companies got slightly more out of their workers this spring after scaling back on hiring. The modest 1.6 percent annualized gain in productivity from April through June signals employers may need to hire more if demand picks up. The Labor Department said Wednesday that the increase followed a 0.5 percent decline in the January-March quarter, less than first estimated.

U.S. productivity rises

Office 2010, we hardly knew ye; Office 2013 already on the way
JUST AS WE were getting comfortable with Office 2010, its time to say hello to Office 2013. The popular productivity software from Microsoft was once ubiquitous in the business world, before the advent of open-source (i.e., free) alternatives like OpenOffice and Google Docs. Still, Office remains highly popular and its component applications, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook, have achieved household name levels of recognition. But the newly competitive market has compelled Microsoft to make some changes. The first and most obvious is to make the look and feel of the programs match

the soon-to-be-released Windows 8. Microsoft has focused on improving web integration across the board. You can embed rich media like video into Word documents now. Instead of plugins that expanded the functionality of programs like Word and Excel, Office 2013 will feature Apps, in a model similar to that of Windows 8. One of the biggest changes is that Office 2013 will feature a sign-in system that can link documents to the cloud. Forgetting the presentation at home will become a thing of the past with this feature, because all of your documents will be associated with your

an evolutionary change in focus, since it has so many web-based functionalities. Despite that, if youve gotten used to Office 2010, your learning curve for Office 2013 shouldnt be too steep. Office 2013 is currently scheduled to launch in February, but thats subject to change this far out. Windows XP and Vista users need not apply you must have at least Windows 7 to use Office 2013. No word yet on price. It would be reasonable to expect it will be comparable to previous versions (about $100$350), but with Windows 8 being offered at an extremely low price on release, that could change.

Today will be another hot and humid day, but this time thunderstorms will dot the radar this afternoon and into tonight. A front stalling nearby will prolong the chance for rain into Friday. A cold front will approach Friday night and bring more showers, downpours and another thunderstorm. A gusty breeze on Saturday will push the front out to sea and drier air moving in will promote clearing skies. Remember that old rule of thumb: count the number of seconds between when lightning appears and when thunder is heard. Divide it by 5 to determine the lightnings distance in miles. - Tom Clark

McClatchy Newspapers

afari-inspired and patterned pieces transition into trendy fall attire. Tribal prints speak for themselves, blending unique colors and patterns for a stylish vibe that evokes ancient times. This summer, tribal motifs were ready-to-wear on maxi dresses, jumpsuits, skirts and blouses. The appeal isnt going away. To take warrior-like looks into autumn, pair the prints with more neutral pieces, says Dawn Gore, owner of Amelias Boutiques in the Kansas City, Mo., area.

AT LEFT: A cool white top balances the bright pattern of this maxi skirt (Love Stitch blouse, $49.95; Veronica M. skirt, $79.95; belt, $19.95; Yellowbox Rihana sandals, $76.95; A Penny For Your Thoughts bangle, $39.95; Rock Darling necklace, $74.95; and clutch, $52.95). AT RIGHT: Once cooler weather sets in, dress up a sleeveless tribal-print jumpsuit with a neutral blazer (S-Twelve jumpsuit, $59.95; Volatile Jenna sandals, $59.95; Ezra blazer, $44.95; Rock Darling necklace, $99.95; bangles, $19.95; and satchel, $54.95; all from Amelias Boutiques, 816-941-2002, shopamelias.com).

Womens swim trunks cover a multitude of sins


By KIM HONE-MCMAHAN Akron Beacon Journal

Its still bathing-suit season. Just reading that sentence makes some of us throw up in our mouths a little bit. Some of us have thunder thighs and would rather bare our souls than our hams. Others are so modest that showing too much skin is just plain embarrassing. Even the ultra-fit women who play Olympic beach volleyball were given the choice to wear shorts and sleeved tops for this years Games, instead of the tiny bikinis that had been required. Those are a couple of reasons Debbie Kuhn of Twinsburg, Ohio, came up with the idea to reinvent swimwear and call her line girltrunks. The idea was spawned after a friend

invited her to go on a tubing trip down the Madison River in Montana. Bring your bathing suit, the friend reminded Kuhn. Ugh. After discovering that the bathing suits in department stores werent going to cover her thighs, she paired a tankini top with mens swim trunks. The trunks dried quickly and Kuhn felt comfortable enough to run into a grocery store wearing the outfit. She concluded that women needed trunks designed just for them. The idea stuck with me, she recalled. It nagged at me and nagged at me. I talked to friends and did my own little market research. Not one person said it was a bad idea. Everyone said that women needed it.

The beautiful thing about this fabric is that it doesnt show any bumps, bulges or cellulite. It covers a multitude of sins.
Debbie Kuhn who came up with the idea to reinvent swimwear and call her line girltrunks

Kuhn, who used to work in sales in the art industry, said she is negotiating with a store that carries sporting goods to sell her swimwear. But at this point, the polyamide fabric trunks, which sell for $79 with either a 7- or11-inch inseam, can only be purchased at www.mygirltrunks.com. The beautiful thing about this fabric is that it doesnt show any bumps, bulges

or cellulite. It covers a multitude of sins, she said, grinning. Deena Kretzer of Chesterfield, Va., is grateful to Kuhn for following through with the idea for a different kind of bathing suit. Im a size 2 who has little trouble finding clothes to fit, but swimsuits

were never flattering, Kretzer said. But all of that changed last summer after Kretzer noticed a woman next to her on North Carolinas Wrightsville Beach wearing a pair of the girltrunks, and she decided to order a pair for herself. I continue to wear these every time Im at a lake or pool and will soon be ordering the other pattern top just to have a change, Kretzer said. Kuhn, 47, sells matching halter and tank tops on her site for $59, in sizes 4 to 24. The tops are cut a little generous, meaning they are not like most swimsuits that are form-

fitting and skin-tight. Its about being flattering and not looking like a sausage, she said. Sara Pfannenstiel of Ness City, Kan., purchased a tank top and a pair of trunks from Kuhn. I have been skinny all my life and then gained about 25 pounds in seven years. In a swimming suit, I felt very ugly, Pfannenstiel said. But now with this suit, I feel wonderful because I am covered up. Kuhn stopped short of offering how much she is earning on sales but became visibly emotional when chatting about the women who have thanked her for designing something that makes them feel good. At the end of the day, its about empowering women, she said. How does a bathing suit do that? I dont know, but its doing it.

Exhausted caregivers must sometimes give themselves a break


Dear Abby: I think what End of My Rope (May 3) may have failed to say is that shes tired of sacrificing her own life to care for her ill-tempered, terminally ill husband. Harsh as this may seem, its a fact. I have been caring for my father for eight years. Hes suffering from severe dementia and is now an invalid. I, too, provide him round-the-clock care. My suggestion to End would be to talk to a respite facility about giving her a vacation from her husband. I do this with my father twice a year. His appreciation for the care I give him increases greatly after

DEAR ABBY
ADVICE
being in a home. He goes for only one week at a time, but its long enough for me to miss him and for him to realize Im not so bad after all. End is overwhelmed and angry right now because her husband expects so much from her. This isnt his fault. It is normal for someone with brain cancer. If no one else is stepping up to give her the breaks she so desperately needs, then she must consider her own well-being. She must do what her heart tells her. She has my sympathy

and respect for what she has done so far. Been There, Still Doing That Dear Been There: Thank you for writing. Many readers responded, offering suggestions gained from personal experience. Their comments: Dear Abby: You gave End of My Rope helpful information about hospice care for her husband in their home, but more services are available from most hospices. In addition to doctors, nurses, home health aides and volunteers, services are provided by chaplains and social workers who offer emotional and spiritual support to dying patients and their families. The hospice that employs me as chaplain also provides bereavement

counseling to families by professional grief counselors at no charge for a year after the patients passing. Honored to Be a Hospice Chaplain Dear Abby: I suggest End call all of her husbands friends and family. Many people offer help in times like this, but they dont know how. Schedule assignments for sitting with her husband, preparing meals, running errands, assisting with getting him in and out of the car on appointment days, or any tasks that need to be done. Loved ones will appreciate being asked to help in tangible ways. I urge her to take a drive or go out to lunch and leave the caretaking to a trusted friend for an hour or two. Her hus-

band does not realize the enormous burden she carries. When shes at her lowest, I also recommend a simple prayer asking for strength. Louise in Bradenton, Fla. Dear Abby: Did you know you do not need a physician to refer you to hospice? You can SELF-refer. However, the doctor must certify eligibility so care can begin. Bronx M.D.

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

CRYPTOQUOTE

HOROSCOPE
BY HOLIDAY MATHIS
ARIES (March 21-April 19). A strong inner will guides you, and it seems to be making plans so secretive that you do not even know about them until you are in full swing. Surprises are in store. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You celebrate the obvious, and you also celebrate for no reason at all. The latter will involve your loved ones today, and they will know that you truly appreciate and love them. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Though you work to get to a place of no regrets, there is something good about regret to consider. Whatever you wish you would have done differently you can use to inform your next move. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Where many would grow impatient, youll excel. Its because you are willing to invest great attention in things for their own sake. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may come across work you did long ago and discover that it makes no sense to you now, or you may be utterly baffled by a decision you made way back when. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Some people are fond of saying the time is now at any ol time. But youve learned through the years that the time is not always now for everything you want to do. You have the maturity for deep strategy. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). All snowflakes are about the same color and melt at the exact same temperature, and yet each one is unique. Someone will appreciate your originality this afternoon, which may make you melt a little, too. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Theres little to be gained from speculating about someones odd behavior. The only way to get to the bottom of it is to ask. If that seems impolite to you, it probably is. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It may seem rather glamorous to be in the loop, when in actuality it could be much better for you to stay on the outside of said loop, where theres little chance youll be tainted by the residue of drama. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Youll listen to others to try to understand where they are coming from and what they are going through. Its because you care, but also because you want to know their motivation and what they want from you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Nothing is predetermined. Considering the glorious flexibility of human consciousness, theres no telling what any one individual will do to maximize opportunities or overcome disadvantages. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Youll spend many hours of highly focused attention on productive and practical activities. By evening, you may feel like you have very little psychic energy to invest in your loved ones. Then love will recharge you. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Aug. 9). This year brings a breakthrough. Youll feel that youve finally passed into a realm youve long wanted to know. The sensation is that of your being warmly presented and accepted. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 9, 25, 41 and 10.
