Move delays action and could backfire if Congress rejects his call
McClatchy Washington Bureau

Obama gambles on Syria
DAVID LIGHTMAN, WILLIAM DOUGLAS and ANITA KUMAR WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama said Saturday he will ask Congress to approve military strikes against Syria’s government, a risky step likely to delay action for at least 10 days that could signal broad popular support but also could end in rejection by the legislative branch. Obama’s surprise decision to go to Congress, and his somewhat defiant way of explaining it, were likely to ratchet up the tension in Washington and the nation, where Americans are skeptical about the mission. As he delivered his 10-minute statement in the White House Rose Garden Saturday, chants of protesters outside the gates could be heard. And even as Obama made the move toward engaging the people and their representaAP photo tives in Congress, the White House said the president would not rule out President Obama, with Vice President Joe Biden standing by, makes a statement about the crisis in Syria in the Rose Garden at the White House acting on his own if Congress fails to Saturday. The president abruptly announced he will seek congressional approval before launching any military action. give its consent. Congress is not scheduled to return to Washington until Sept. 9, and its debate is likely to take much of that week.

No Child program gets left behind
Begun with fanfare in 2002, law never lived up to its goals
MARK GUYDISH

Possible attack spawns rallies on both sides

Remember that lofty goal of all public school students being proficient in reading and math by 2014? Fuggedaboutit. Technically, the goal applied to students in grades three through eight and 11 — the ones required to take annual state standardized math and reading tests, but the rhetoric made it sound like it applied to all students, literally. The name of the law that set the goal was “No Child Left Behind.” Yet with the wave of a pen, or more exactly a federal waiver granted to Pennsylvania, all that disappeared last week. Ten years of chasing “Adequate Yearly Progress,” or AYP, ended, even if all the testing continues. When the state makes it’s annual public release of test results sometime next month, there will be no mention of AYP. The 100 percent proficiency goal is likewise kaput. Signed in January 2002 with bipartisan support from President George W. Bush and liberal icon U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy, the law mandated annual testing nationwide and required the percentage of students scoring “proficient” or better rise steadily until hitting 100 percent in 2014. States could devise their own tests and decide what the percentage goal was for each year, but the feds had to approve. See NO CHILD | 14A

Luzerne County court system struggles to translate justice for all
Court administrator: Three interpreters far from enough for caseload
sdelazio@timesleader.com

SHEENA DELAZIO

District Judge James Dixon has seen an increasing number of Spanishspeaking residents pass through his office in Hazle Township each day, and he and others said more interpreters are needed to make court proceedings run smoother.

“It’s difficult, to say the least,” Dixon said. His observations have not gone unnoticed. Though there are 30 documented languages spoken in Luzerne County, court Administrator Michael Shucosky said, there are only three state-approved interpreters serving the county’s 300,000-plus residents. “We need qualified interpreters. There isn’t enough in the state,” said Shucosky, adding that at times English seems to be “a second language in

Luzerne County.” The shortage of interpreters is a nationwide problem, Shucosky said, and he noted the Philadelphia court system only recently obtained a Chinese interpreter for its growing population. News reports from Ohio and California also chronicle the need for interpreters for the growing immigrant population – and not only at the court level, but throughout the community See TRANSLATE | 13A

lengthy proceedings. Dixon, who was elected to the office in January 2012, said a majority of the cases he handles in which language is an issue — whether they be criminal charges, a landlord/tenant dispute or non-traffic citation — are Spanish.

HAZLE TWP. – Every day, District Judge James Dixon tries to overcome the language barrier. With a growing number of Spanishspeaking immigrants in the Hazleton area, Dixon typically needs translators on a daily basis for criminal and civil hearings.

SHICKSHINNY — The Town Hill United Methodist Church wants everyone to know about a fantastic Florida destination. But it’s not the one with the big-eared mouse. The Town Hill youth group in June volunteered for a week at Give Kids the World, a nonprofit organization helping children with life-threatening illnesses. “One of the families said how they love coming here because no one looks at them differently because they have a handicap,” said youth group member Sarah Shaffer who went on the trip with her parents and brother. She said there was a sign in front of every resort villa that

read “welcome home,” greeting families as they arrived to their lodging for the week. Give Kids the World is run almost entirely by volunteers and ranked by Charity Navigator as one of the most efficient nonprofits in the country, boasting it uses only 8.3 percent of donations for administrative costs. It was founded in 1989 by hotel magnate Henri Landwirth who spent most of his teen years in Nazi concentration camps. The resort, called The Village, is situated between Disney World, Universal Studios Florida and SeaWorld. Families from around the world, identified by groups such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation, stay free of charge and get free tickets to see the

nearby amusement parks. Town Hill Church Pastor Bethany Wood said she found The Village while looking for volunteer opportunities near Disney World, hoping to answer the question “How do you instill in people a desire for service?” The Florida tactic worked, she said. Three non-church members volunteered with them. “The whole thing is to teach them … that if you do small things, it’s going to change someone’s life,” Wood said. Shaffer is a sophomore studying to be a teacher at East Stroudsburg University. For her, the trip went deeper than simply stirring oatmeal and serving hot pancakes in the morning. It opened her eyes to human resilience and people’s desire to be happy despite the

“They’re the more happy ones because they have to enjoy everything they can before it’s gone.”

POLICE BLOTTER
DORRANCE TWP. — Butler Township Police Officer Timothy Jacobs was injured late Friday night when a police car was hit as he and another officer were about to leave a traffic stop on Mountain Boulevard, state police said. Jacobs suffered a severe head laceration when he was struck by the mirror of a Kia Sedona that sped through the scene, state police said. Jacobs, 42, was treated and released from Hazleton General Hospital. According to state police: Officers from Butler and Wright townships and Freeland were clearing the scene of a felony vehicle stop. The police vehicles had on their emergency lights. Jacobs was standing at the driver’s side front of a Wright Township police car as officer Michael Marshall had the door open to get into the vehicle. The Kia driven by Pragnesh Pathak, 52, of Mountain Top, allegedly came through the area at a high rate of speed and struck the door, knocking off the Kia’s mirror that hit Jacobs in the head. The Kia fled the scene and was later stopped, police said. No charges have yet been filed. WILKES-BARRE — City police report the following: • A West Ross Street home was reportedly burglarized around 3 a.m. Saturday.

UGI-Penn natural gas to purge pipelines

WILKES-BARRE TWP.

Artists make their mark on area tattoo fanatics

The natural gas utility has scheduled a tentative pipeline purge as part of a gas main project along Nicholson Street from 10:30 a.m. to about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. Inclement weather or other factors could alter the scheduled purge. As the gas is released into the air, neighbors for several blocks around the project should expect to hear a hissing sound and smell the natural gas odor additive mercaptan, which smells like rotten eggs. UGI-Penn Natural Gas advises that anyone concerned about the smell of leaking gas should call 800-276-2722. The utility work could slow traffic.

She’s a graphic designer at McGraw-Hill publishers and said, recently, the company changed its policy to allow employees with visible tattoos. “To me, that’s a sign of the times,” Redmond said. Redmond believes getting a tattoo should be a thoughtful experience that marks an important idea or milestone. She held out her own well-inked arms and said each of her tattoos, many of them flying birds and open eyes, has a

long story. On Friday, Redmond said, to her surprise, a 60-year-old woman got a tattoo at their booth. The woman’s mother recently passed away and she wanted to commemorate her life with a daisy, Redmond said. She sees now, more than ever, people of older generations undergoing the procedure. Bee-like buzzing filled the room Saturday as busy artists applied ink to skin in just about every vendor booth. The only booth not seeing so much action was the tattoo-removal service handing out informational brochures.

Rally to focus on birth practices
On Monday, Northeastern Pennsylvania families will join an estimated 12,000 parents, health care providers and advocates at Labor Day rallies around the country to call attention to what organizers are calling a crisis in American maternal health care. The 2013 Rally to Improve Birth will take place in more than 170 U.S. cities at 10 a.m. local time. Supporters will call for safer, evidence-based birth practices that put women and babies before profits, convenience and liability concerns. A listing of all rally locations is available at www.rallytoimprovebirth. com. The local rally will be at Hugh B. Hughes Funeral Home, 1044 Wyoming Ave., Forty Fort. Organizers say Pennsylvania’s Caesarean-section rate is too high — more than twice the rate suggested by the World Health Organization — and the rate for area hospitals is even higher. Research points to “physician factors” as the driving force, not health conditions of mothers, organizers say. They also say the United States has the highest maternity care costs in the world, but ranks 45th in maternal safety.

Event aims for understanding addiction
Luzerne County DA says focus on intervention and recovery crucial
Times Leader Correspondent

GERI GIBBONS

WILKES-BARRE — Stefanie Salavantis, who lost a sister to alcoholism, spoke on Saturday about the impact addiction has on families. She said it is important to separate the disease of addiction from the person suffering, never giving up hope of recovery. Salavantis, Luzerne County’s district attorney, was attending the second annual Overdose Awareness Day observation at Kirby Park, not only in her official role, she said, but also as a family member wanting to make a difference in the community, to reach out to those suffering from addiction and their family members. “I am one of you,” she said, “and you are not alone.” Salavantis also noted the link between addiction and crime in

our area. A focus on intervention and recovery benefits both the addict and the community in the long term, she said. She credited county specialty courts with providing intervention and treatment for those in the criminal justice system. Carol Coolbaugh, coordinator of the event, told attendees the stigma attached to addiction is unnecessary and unproductive. “Addiction is a disease in which family members often feel shame,” said Coolbaugh. “Gatherings such as this provide support for those still suffering and hope for the future.” Coolbaugh’s efforts are in memory of her son Erik, who four years ago lost his battle with addiction. Michael Donahue, former administrator of Luzerne County Alcohol and Drug Services, encouraged family members gathered to honor loved ones lost to addiction by reaching out to others. Now a drug and alcohol consultant, Donahue recalled the loss of a member of his family,

and said it increased his determination to educate and inform the community, to help addicts and their families understand that recovery is possible. Attendee Dave Magdalinski, in recovery for more than 20 years, stressed the importance of structuring one’s life and of self-care to make long-term sobriety possible. He also emphasized the importance of family support and personal effort. Darlene Magdalinski, community activist, addressed attendees, sharing a poem that reinforced willingness to sacrifice and purposeful gratitude in the lives of our young people. “We need to be as excited about other people’s success and recovery as we are our own,” she said. “We need to come together as a community.” One highlight of the event was a balloon release, as the names of those who had lost their battles with addiction were read by family members. As the purple and white balloons ascended, many attendees took

the opportunity to reflect on the lives of those lost, with both sadness and gratitude. Locally, an organization known as GRASP, for Grief Recovery After a Substance Passing, provides support to families. Overseen by

Coolbaugh, the group meets twice a month and welcomes new members. Information about the organization is available by calling 570991-7199 or visiting its website: www.grasphelp.org.

Are answers buried in school’s graves?
Officials are excavating bodies from a notorious Fla. reform school in hopes of learning how they died
BRENDAN FARRINGTON

Iconic S.F. bridge set to reopen

The self-anchored suspension of the new eastern section of the San FranciscoOakland Bay Bridge is seen at left next to the current section that is closed to traffic. When traffic flows across the new stretch of the bridge for the first time next week, it will do so nearly a quartercentury after a deadly earthquake during the 1989 World Series collapsed two 50foot sections of the old structure. The Bay Bridge failure, one of the temblor’s most memorable images, prompted a $6.4 billion rebuilding project.

MARIANNA, Fla. — University of South Florida researchers began exhuming dozens of graves Saturday at a former Panhandle reform school where horrific beatings have been reported in hopes of identifying the boys and learning how they died. The digging and work at the site will continue until Tuesday, with researchers hoping to unearth the remains of four to six boys before resuming at a later date, said Erin Kimmerle, the USF anthropologist leading the excavation. After work began Saturday, relatives of one of the boys

believed to be buried at the school held a private prayer at the grave sites. The family has provided DNA in hopes of finding a match with Robert Stephens. School records show he was fatally stabbed by another inmate in 1937, but his family hopes to confirm how he actually died through the exhumation efforts. If his remains are found, his family says they will be reburied in a family plot in Quincy. “That will be a great sense of homecoming,” Tananarive Due said. The boy was Due’s great-uncle. She was at the site Saturday with her son, father and husband, and said she hopes that other families will also be able to locate relatives buried there. “Their families never had a proper opportunity to say goodbye to their loved ones. In a lot of cases children just disappeared,” said Due, who

lives in Atlanta. Former inmates at the reform school from the 1950s and 1960s have detailed horrific beatings in a small, white concrete block building at the facility. A group of survivors call themselves the “White House Boys” and five years ago called for an investigation into the graves. In 2010, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement ended an investigation and said it could not substantiate or refute claims that boys died at the hands of staff. USF later began its own research and discovered even more graves than the state department had identified. USF has worked for months to secure a permit to exhume the remains, finally receiving permission from Gov. Rick Scott and the state Cabinet after being rejected by Secretary of State Ken Detzner, who reports to Scott.

A team of anthropologists from the University of South Florida began exhuming suspected graves on Saturday at the now-closed Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys in Marianna, Fla.

“In these historic cases, it’s really about having an accurate record and finding out what happened and knowing the truth about what happened,” Kimmerle said of efforts at the school, which opened in 1900 and

shut down two years ago for budgetary reasons. Kimmerle said the remains of about 50 people are in the graves. Some are marked with a plain, white steel cross, and others have no markings.

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK

Smoke disrupts firefighters, view

Dense smoke from a wildfire burning Saturday in and around Yosemite National Park in California hampered both suppression efforts and the prized views sought by holiday weekend tourists. For the first time since the blaze broke out in a neighboring forest two weeks ago, smoke obscured Yosemite Valley, home to the park’s most popular landmarks, spokeswoman Kari Cobb said. Meanwhile, firefighting aircraft remained grounded because of low visibility caused by the smoke, U.S. Forest Service spokesman Mark Healey said. The blaze had scorched 343 square miles of brush, oaks and pines and 11 homes, as of Saturday. Of that total, 94 square miles of wilderness have burned in the northern section of Yosemite, up from 75 square miles a day earlier.

Measles put church under scrutiny
Followers of televangelist Kenneth Copeland were not vaccinated against the disease
Associated Press

JAMIE STENGLE NEWARK, Texas — The teachings of televangelist Kenneth Copeland and his family focusing on the virtues of trusting God to keep healthy are under scrutiny after a cluster of measles cases linked to his family’s North Texas megachurch revealed many congregants hadn’t been vaccinated against the highly contagious disease. Kenneth Copeland Ministries has won supporters worldwide through television programs, crusades, conferences and prayer request networks. He was a pioneer of the prosperity gospel, which holds that believers are destined to flourish spiritually, physically and financially. Although church officials were quick to act after the outbreak — including hosting clinics in August where 220 people received immunization shots — and have denied they are against medical care or vaccinations, people familiar with the ministry say there is a pervasive culture that believers should rely on God, not modern medicine, to keep them well. “To get a vaccine would have been viewed by me and my friends and my peers as an act of fear — that you doubted God would keep you safe, you doubted God would keep you healthy. We simply didn’t do it,” former church member Amy Arden told The Associated Press. Health officials say 21 people were sickened with the measles after a person who contracted the virus overseas visited the 1,500-member Eagle Mountain International Church located on the vast grounds of Kenneth Copeland Ministries in Newark, about 20 miles north of Fort Worth. Of the 21 people who contracted measles linked to the church, 16 were unvaccinated. The others might have had at least one vaccination, but had no documentation. Symptoms of the measles, which is spread by coughing, sneezing and close personal contact with infected people, include a fever, cough and rash. Those infected are contagious from about four days before breaking out into the rash to four days after. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that children get two doses of the combined vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella, called the MMR. The first dose should be given when the child is 12 to 15 months old and the second at 4 to 6 years old.

Aftershocks shake up remote region

Several aftershocks rattled a remote Aleutian Island region off Alaska in the hours after a major 7.0 temblor struck with a jet-like rumble that shook homes and sent residents scrambling for cover. At least three dozen aftershocks, including one reaching magnitude 6.1 in strength, struck after the major quake Friday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. There were no reports of damage or injuries from the earthquake, which occurred in a seismically active region. It was strongly felt in Atka, an Aleut community of 64 people, and the larger Aleutian town of Adak, where 320 people live.

KANDAHAR,AfGHANISTAN

Two bomb attacks leave 18 dead

A suicide bomber detonated his explosives near a police checkpoint and a bank in southern Afghanistan on Saturday, one of two attacks in the heartland of the insurgency that killed 18 people over 24 hours. Separately, a NATO service member was killed by insurgents in the country’s east, according to a military statement. No group immediately claimed responsibility for any of the attacks, but Afghan President Hamid Karzai blamed the bombings on the Taliban. The militants have escalated their activity as U.S.-led foreign forces reduce their presence in the country and are in the final phase of handing over responsibility for security to Afghan troops.

MANASQUAN, N.J. — No, it wasn’t a great summer to do business at the Jersey shore. But considering the damage Superstorm Sandy did to the region last fall and the Herculean effort to get large swaths of the coast ready for tourists and residents by Memorial Day, many say they are grateful they had any kind of summer season at all this year. “What hurt us was there are a lot of residents who are still displaced by the storm — people that I see all the time, whose children I’ve watched grow up, who I’ve seen maybe once or twice all summer,” said Matthew Riccelli, general manager of Gee Gee’s Pizza, which has been a fixture on the Manasquan beach walk for three decades.

The business and an adjacent arcade were wrecked by the storm, which filled the 8-foot-high basement with 6 feet of sand, shattered doors and windows, and flooded interiors. Riccelli said business was down by 30 percent this summer because of the lingering effects of the storm on tourism but also by an exceptionally rainy first half of the season. A carwash his friend owns also is down about 30 percent this summer, he added. On the Belmar boardwalk, the Exit 98 Boutique reopened in a steel shipping container for this summer. Foot traffic was about the same as last year, but profits were down, said longtime employee Kathy Ferrara. “Every last thing had to be replaced, from the first piece of clothing to the last paper clip, every hanger, every rack — Wite-Out! Stupid things like Wite-Out we had to replace,” she said.

Gov. Chris Christie, who has based much of his re-election campaign on the state’s recovery from the storm, said no one expected a normal summer this year. He spent the first week in August at the shore with his family, sitting on the beach, playing miniature golf, strolling boardwalks and dining out every night. “We knew that this summer was not going to be like the summer of 2012; I said that right from the beginning,” he said. “There’s no doubt that business was going to be down all over the Jersey shore because a lot of people, having seen the extraordinary devastation, didn’t believe we’d be able to be up and running in time for summer. They turned out to be wrong, and I think we’ll get them back next year. But it’s a lot better than people in November and December thought it was going to be.”

Youngest Delhi gang-rape defendant convicted

CAIRO

Was Egyptian swan working undercover?

In a case that ruffled feathers in Egypt, authorities have detained a migratory bird that a citizen suspected of being a spy. A man in Egypt’s Qena governorate, some 280 miles southeast of Cairo, found the suspicious bird among four others near his home and brought them to a police station Friday, said Mohammed Kamal, the head of the security in the region. There, officers and the man puzzled over the electronic device attached to the suspected winged infiltrator. On Saturday, a veterinary committee called by concerned government officials determined the device was neither a bomb nor a spying device.

NEW DELHI — An Indian juvenile court on Saturday handed down the first conviction in the fatal gang rape of a young woman on a moving New Delhi bus, convicting a teenager of rape and murder and sentencing him to three years in a reform home, lawyers said. The victim’s parents denounced the sentence, which was the maximum the defendant faced. The family had long insisted the teen, who was 17 at the time of the December attack and is now 18, be tried as an adult — and thus face the death penalty — insisting he was the most brutal of the woman’s attackers. “He should be hanged irre-

spective of whether he is a juvenile or not. He should be punished for what he did to my daughter,” the victim’s mother, Asha Devi, told reporters after the verdict was announced. Indian law forbids the publication of the teen’s name because he was sentenced in a juvenile court. The attack, which left the 23-year-old victim with such extensive internal injuries that she died two weeks later, sparked protests across the country and led to reforms of India’s antiquated sexual violence laws. The government, facing immense public pressure, had promised swift justice in the case. The convicted teen was one of six people accused of tricking the woman and her

Many are there for the first time, while others are in the final year of their formal education. There will be tears, from some prekindergarten and kindergarten youngsters starting school, and from parents as they leave their new college students at the dorm. Statistics make clear that those with college degrees generally will do better than their peers who do not graduate and that those who drop out from high school face an even more dismal future. As the school year begins, some facts and figures about education in America: HOW MANY STUDENTS ARE THERE? The National Center for Education Statistics estimated that in 2013, 50.1 million children will be enrolled in U.S. public schools and 5.2 million will be in private school. That doesn’t include students who are homeschooled. The Education Department’s statistics arm also estimated there were 1.5 million U.S. students home-schooled in 2007; advocates of home schooling advocates put the number higher. Enrollment in colleges and universities was estimated to reach a record 21.8 million this fall, according to NCES, the Education Department’s statistics arm. WHO’S TEACHING THEM? There are about 3.3 million elementary and secondary public teachers in 2013, leading to a student teacher ratio of 15-to-1, NCES said. The average teacher in a public school earned about $56,000 for the school year that ended in 2011, according to the agency. When adjusted for inflation, that salary is only 3 percent higher than it was for the year that ended in the spring of 1991. WHAT ABOUT SPENDING ON KIDS? Teacher salaries are just part of the total spent on educating children. All told, NCES says $591 billion will be spent during the new school year. That breaks down to an average $11,810 for each student. WHAT ARE STUDENTS BEING TAUGHT? The buzz word these days is Common Core. The Common Core State Standards establish benchmarks for student learning in math and reading. Forty-five states and

the District of Columbia have adopted the standards, which critics decry as tantamount to a national curriculum. Supporters counter that the standards are necessary to ensure that high school graduates are ready for college or career. DRESSED AND EQUIPPED FOR SUCCESS In some households, it is a tradition that children get a new outfit for that first day of school. But the cost is just a fraction of what parents pay to get their children ready for school. The National Retail Federation estimated that a family’s back-to-school spending for elementary and secondary school in 2013 would average about $634.78. That’s down more than $50 from the previous year. For college students, there’s a higher cost. The federation said back-toschool spending for a college student would average $836.83 this year, also down from 2012. JUMP START ON COLLEGE More than 2 million students took 3.7 million Advanced Placement exams in 2012 in an attempt to earn college credit while still in high school, according the College Board, which administers the test. The numbers have increased steadily since the 1955-56 school year, when 1,229 students took 2,199 exams. But the increase in participation doesn’t necessarily translate into an increase in college credit. In 1992, 65.5 percent tests scored at least a 3, usually the minimum grade to earn credit. That dropped to 59.2 in 2012. STICKER SHOCK The tuition and room and board bills already have arrived, and in many cases the due dates have passed. So what does it cost to attend a college or university these days? It depends on the type of school you go to. Two-year, public community colleges will cost in-state students and their parents back about $10,550 this academic year, while the price tag for attending a four-year public institution of higher education averages about $17,860, according to the College Board. Choose to cross state lines to attend a public university? The price tag is an average $30,911. The cost of a private, four-year college or university — $39,518, the College Board said. THAT’S A LOT OF MONEY. WHERE CAN I GET HELP? Most families don’t foot the entire tuition bill, at least right away. According to NCES, 79 percent of undergraduates received some form of financial aid for the 2011-12 school year. Of that total, 59 percent got grants and 42 percent took out loans. Other aid includes veterans’ benefits and federal PLUS loans for parents. Aid on average totaled $10,000, NCES reported. After months of wrangling, Congress averted a doubling of federal student loan rates this fall. IS THE COST WORTH IT? Consider the financial benefits of finishing college. The Census Bureau reports that adults with bachelor’s degree or more earned an average $81,761 in 2011. Those with high school degrees or GEDs earned an average $40,634, while the average wages for workers who didn’t finish ninth grade was $26,545.

With parade,Newtown reflects‘howwe’re healing’
Decision on whether to have event weighed on community
Associated Press

CHRISTOPHER SULLIVAN

NEWTOWN, Conn. — Ten thousand decisions go into creating a big, boisterous parade. No one knows that better than Robin Buchanan, who for years has juggled the lineup at the Labor Day parade that has jubilantly closed out every Newtown summer for more than five decades. But never before had this happened: Calls and emails from regulars, folks who always marched, concerned about the most basic decision of all. “Are you going to have a parade,” they asked her, “this year?” This year. Meaning: After the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, after the eulogies for 20 firstgraders and six educators, amid the drumbeat of news stories across the country and hushed conversations around town, all adding up

Children hold a flag as it passes down Main Street during last year’s annual Labor Day parade in Newtown, Conn. In the wake of a mass shooting in the town, parade officials struggled to decide if the event should go on as usual this holiday weekend.

AP photo

— still — to incomprehension. A parade, this year? On an icy evening back in January, barely a month after the shootings, a small group met with sad hugs to

confront that question. It’s always been a daunting task for the Labor Day Parade Committee to map out the two-hour extravaganza — to arrange the vintage warplane flyovers

or get the stagecoach that’s pulled by four matched horses or the ballfield-size American flag, or whatever, to make sure of security and to hash out ways to pay the bills.

But this time, the committee members — two of whom serve out of devotion even though they’re divorced from each other — sat hollow-eyed under the fluorescent lights of a bank conference room. Outside, handmade memorials still fluttered on lampposts. The funerals were still raw memories. How could you focus on a parade? Who would be the grand marshal, a happy honor normally but surely a heavy burden this time around? What would the theme be? Could it be anything but a memorial? But if so, what kind of parade is that? “How’s everybody doing?” someone asked. There were tears as they went around the table, answering. It’s a tight group, and this was the first time they’d been together since “the incident.” Yet they knew that planning a parade is a long process. And they sensed that, somehow, this year it could be one piece of the enormous task facing the shattered town and many beyond it, of finding ways to move forward through grief. So they got going, staying on the mundane issues of assigning duties and making preliminary decisions. “I think we’re all kind of nervous about how we proceed,” said Beth Caldwell, the head of the committee, a petite, hard-

charging real estate agent by day. Through the months ahead, she would work to maintain a delicate balance — “respectful of what has happened and still offering an avenue of celebration.” Often she’d be the one, when discussions turned somber, who injected a laugh or a cold dose of let’skeep-moving reality. “We can say what we want to happen,” she said, assessing the job ahead, “but the parade kind of takes on a life of its own.” A long tradition Newtown’s parade has been a fixture since 4,000 spectators turned out for the first step-off on Sept. 3, 1962. It often falls on a glorious Indian summer day, but even in drizzle, people come out — to see their neighbors march, to catch the veterans’ color guard or the cartwheeling gymnastics team, or just to laugh at parade nonsense, like the grand marshal who once showed up in a gorilla suit and roller-skated the whole route. Parade mornings start early. At first light, you see cars pulling to the curb all along Main Street, and folks unloading folding chairs and blankets that will line more than a mile of lawns. Having staked out front-row spots, they drive away for a quick breakfast. Meanwhile, you’ll see a kilted bagpiper or perhaps a couple of Minutemen in full

regalia, or maybe even Abe Lincoln in his stovepipe hat, heading north along the sidewalk to join their units. Obliviously, they’ll pass a cheerleader and football player, both also in uniform, hurrying the other way to join theirs. And blending incongruously with regular traffic, you’ll notice polished Model T’s or finned 1950s Cadillacs with their tops down, Army jeeps and spindly antique farm tractors spouting puffs of black exhaust. They, too, cruise toward their places in line. Then, with a siren’s whoop and the rattle of snare drums, it starts. For two hours, the flood of marchers, floats, politicians, clowns, bands and Civil War re-enactors glides past, the latter stopping every once in a while to fire a rifle salute that startles old folks and sets a few babies bawling. There are animals of all kinds, from equestrian units and rescued shelter dogs to alpacas and, sometimes, beribboned cows from a dairy farm on the edge of town. A couple years ago, volunteers were called to help unfurl and carry “the largest American flag” which stretched across the wide street. Spectators spontaneously joined in, marching along with children dancing in the moving shadow underneath. Civic groups, businesses and church congregations walk and wave. The schools muster their smiling, shouting herds, including the elementary schools, including, some years, Sandy Hook Elementary. So this was the parade that marched for five decades, lighting up the town, right up through Labor Day 2012, three months before the world first heard of Newtown. “Marching Strong” A foot of snow from a weekend nor’easter covered the ground when the parade committee members got down to business at their second organizational meeting in February. They went over the items agreed on back in January: Though they’d considered several possible grand marshals — from the police chief to the pastor of St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, which lost so many children — they’d decided no one person was enough this year. The whole town would marshal this parade, in effect. They’d settled on the theme during a discussion about qualities they wanted to highlight. Committee secretary Dan Cruson, the town historian who takes a long view, noted, “we’re strong” — meaning the town would get through this. And Caldwell, looking up from taking notes on the suggestions, offered her own: “We are Newtown, marching strong.” Adopted.

Towns could miss out on Pittsburgh Airport gas drilling bounty
FAA rules mean that $500M in royalties could go to airport
KEVIN BEGOS
Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — A deal to allow natural gas drilling at the Pittsburgh Airport could generate $500 million in royalties over the next few decades, but for now none of that money

will go directly to Allegheny County or nearby townships. That’s because Federal Aviation Administration rules mandate that any revenue generated by airport-owned “mineral, natural, or agricultural products or water” go back to the airport.

Allegheny County officials have accepted the rule but haven’t given up hope. “We will certainly abide by that,” County Executive Rich Fitzgerald said in an email. “If opportunity exists to utilize those funds to reduce the burdens on the county’s taxpayers, we fully expect to pursue that.” In February, the Allegheny County Airport Authority approved the deal with Consol

Energy, which paid a signing bonus of $50 million. Officials hope royalties will add $450 million over the next 20 years. Some area residents are wondering how or if local government will benefit. “Will we get any of the money?” asked Barbara Leary, 73, who has lived in nearby Coraopolis for 43 years. If parts of the wells extend beyond the airport and under private property, Consol will

need to sign leases with those people, too. And, indirectly, the townships may benefit in other ways. Consol will need water to fracture the shale rock in the 47 wells it plans to drill — about 300 million gallons total. The company plans to buy that from the nearby townships of Moon and Findlay. If all the water came from Findlay, it would bring in about $2.4 million in new revenue

over the next four years at the current retail rate of $7.94 per 1,000 gallons, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported. “So it’s a very big thing for our authority,” Jason Orsini, general manager of the Findlay Township Municipal Authority, told the paper. Pennsylvania also has an impact fee that provides local government with some revenue from drilling operations.

Democrats line up to run for governor
With administration seemingly in disarray, Tom Corbett may be vulnerable

UPCOMING RUTH’S CHRIS

HARRISBURG — Sensing an opportunity to limit Gov. Tom Corbett to one term, six Democrats have declared their candidacy for the 2014 primary, and three more are giving it serious thought. They are bucking history, since no sitting governor has lost a bid for a second term in the nearly 40 years since governors have been permitted to seek re-election. But Corbett, a Republican, is widely viewed as vulnerable, and the governorship is the only statewide office on the ballot. “This is the marquee race in our state,” said Elena Cross, executive director of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party. “This is our primary concern. We’ve built our structure around making sure that we’re holding Tom Corbett accountable.” As Labor Day weekend unofficially heralds the 2014 campaign season, Corbett’s administration is in disarray, his political future cloudy. A Franklin & Marshall College poll released Thursday showed only 20 percent of voters — and only 38 percent of Republicans — believe Corbett deserves another term. The survey of 594 voters was sponsored by several news organizations. None of Corbett’s major initiatives — new taxes to bolster transportation projects, prospective rollbacks in public pension benefits and the privatization of state-controlled liquor and wine sales — got majority support despite Republican control in both houses. Turnover among Corbett’s top advisers has been steady since he took office in 2011. His longtime spokesman recently stepped down as part of an overhaul of his communications shop, and his nominee for education secretary was dismissed. Most of the Democrats running in the May 20 primary — or thinking about it — have high-level experience in state government. Contenders include U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz, former state revenue secretary Tom Wolf and two former environmental protection secretaries who served in Gov. Ed Rendell’s administration, Katie McGinty and John Hanger. Two of the undeclared hopefuls have won statewide campaigns: state Treasurer Rob McCord, who has formed a campaign committee that lets him raise money, and former state Auditor General Jack Wagner, a Pittsburgh resident who lost this year in that city’s mayoral primary. Other declared candi-

dates are Pentecostal minister Max Myers and Lebanon County Commissioner Jo Ellen Litz. State Sen. Mike Stack, of Philadelphia, has said he is considering running. The Democratic State Committee meets Feb. 8 to endorse its primary favorite, something that requires a two-thirds majority vote — a tall order even for a popular candidate. On websites and in public appearances, the candidates are working to define themselves apart from the pack. Schwartz touts her strong recognition in the heavily Democratic Philadelphia media market. Wolf, who briefly ran for governor in 2010 but dropped out, raised eyebrows when he announced he would plow at least $10 million of his own money into his primary campaign. Hanger, who served as a state utility regulator for five years before Rendell appointed him to head the DEP, is emphasizing wideranging policy proposals that include tougher gasdrilling laws, the revocation of state funding for failing charter schools and the decriminalization of marijuana. McGinty’s campaign stresses her governmental and private-sector experience in environmental protection and her Philadelphia upbringing as the ninth of 10 children.

Kirtland C. (Kirt) Walp, 79, of the Lee Park section of Hanover Township, passed away on Friday at his home. Born on March 26, 1934, in the Dundee section of Hanover Township, he was a son of the late Carl and Ann Williams Walp. He graduated from Hanover High School, class of 1951, then served two apprenticeships: one as a machinist and one for tool and die making at W.H. Nicholson Co. in Wilkes-Barre. He worked on the oxygen supply assembly to put the first living thing in space in the late 1950s. He also worked on all tooling related to bombs that were used in the Korean War and a project related to Berrillium copper for the non-magnetic land mines. In the 1960s Kirt was employed at Fibrous Products, now called CertainTeed, to build a mold to make a Fiberglas cushion for the first Titan missile launched from Huntsville, Ala. He earned a master’s degree from Penn State in 1972. He began a career in teaching, first at Wyoming Valley Technical Institute, which became West Side Area Tech School and is now West Side Career and Technology Center in Pringle, retiring in 1993. He also taught for Penn State, Luzerne County Community College, RCA Corp., American Tobacco, Kanaar Corp. and others that wanted instruction in blueprint reading, math and measuring tools. He had been offered employment at Williamsport Tech Center and a staff position at Penn State University, but declined in order to stay in the Wyoming Valley. Kirt loved hunting, clay bird and target shooting and was an avid Lionel Train user, not a collector. He was a member of Firwood United Methodist Church, Wilkes-Barre, was active in Blue Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons, Nanticoke, where he was a 50-year member, president of the Hall Association and served as a trustee.

BEDFORD — A secretary to the warden of a county jail has been charged with stealing more than $50,000 going back five years. Sheila J. Suter was charged Friday with felony theft after Bedford County Prison Warden David Kessling allegedly noticed checks and money orders were being deposited but not cash. She was terminated from her job. The money Suter was accused of taking was from incoming inmates and was supposed to be deposited in a local bank. Inmates didn’t lose money because Suter reimbursed them from the bank account, police said. The Pittsburgh TribuneReview reported Suter, 64, was fired in 2001 over a relationship with a guard and for violating a state law against taking obscene material into a prison. Prison officials found a Playgirl magazine when they were clearing out her desk, according to reports. She later won an arbitrator’s decision that she was wrongfully dismissed, and she was re-hired in 2003. Kessling told the newspaper he took over her duties after her recent health problems. “She was handling all the money collected from inmates, but there was really no oversight,” Kessling said. “We’ve instituted a number of changes to make sure this sort of thing doesn’t happen again.”

A bright light has gone out in Wilkes-Barre. Barry “Chip” Weiss died Friday in WilkesBarre General Hospital. Born Dec. 2, 1947, he was the son of Betty “BeBe” Liebman Weiss Baer and the late Nathan “Sonny” Weiss. Chip (or Chipper, if you’re more into the formal informality) graduated from Meyers High School, class of 1965. After graduation, he began a lifetime of “peddling” as he called it. He began by selling “used horses” and graduated from there to cars, animal feed, auction houses and a host of other consumer goods. For more than 30 years, he was the owner of Main Street Feed, located on South Main Street, Wilkes-Barre. Chip was an avid fan of Indy and NASCAR racing. Surviving, in addition to his mother, are his wife, Bonnie Brown Weiss; daughter, Samantha Wells, Winthrop, N.Y.; son, Neal, Deerpark, Ohio; granddaughters, Megan and

A nascent campaign against employers’ use of unpaid interns is taking aim at what critics call some of the longstanding practice’s biggest enablers: colleges that steer students into such programs in exchange for academic credit. Organizers hope to have mobilizers raise the issue on campuses as students return to school this fall, with a particular emphasis on schools in New York, Washington and Los Angeles. They also want to join up with organized labor as part of a broader coalition focused on workplace issues. The backlash against working for free — and sometimes paying tuition for the privilege— comes after a federal judge in New York recently ruled that Fox Searchlight Pictures violated federal minimum wage and overtime laws by not paying interns who worked on the 2010 movie “Black Swan.” Angry interns have also sued record compa-

nies, magazine publishers, modeling agencies and TV talk show hosts. Leaders of the Fair Pay Campaign, a group organized in 2012 to fight the internships, say they are taking their social mediadriven effort right to the top: they plan to press the White House to end its use of unpaid interns. Getting college credit “is a tangible benefit” of internships, said campaign organizer Mikey Franklin, a 23-year-old British expat who now lives in Washington. “But I can’t pay my rent with college credit.” Franklin said he founded the Fair Pay Campaign when he was unable to land a paid political job after working as a campaign organizer on Maryland’s 2012 samesex marriage ballot measure. “Everybody told me you can’t get a job on (Capitol) Hill unless you’re an unpaid intern,” he said. “The more I looked, I saw it was an incredibly widespread practice.” His allies include University of Nevada-Las Vegas student Jessica Padron, who is trying to defray the $6,500 costs of a four-month Washington internship

for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid with a crowd-sourced online fundraising campaign. At New York University, a petition drive asks the school to remove unpaid internship listings offered by for-profit businesses. More volunteers are pitching in, he said, although he declined to provide specifics about the campaign’s finances. A recent survey reported that 63 percent of graduating college seniors this year had an internship, the highest level since polling began six years ago. Nearly half the internships were unpaid. The expansion of internships comes as President Barack Obama and Congress have been emphasizing the problem of growing student debt. The federal Fair Labor Standards Act sets out a six-part test to determine whether an internship can be unpaid. The internship must be similar to “training which would be given in an educational environment,” run primarily for the intern’s benefit and involve work that doesn’t replace that of paid employees. Defenders of academicdriven internships emphasize the educational benefits of bringing students into the workplace.

Area lawmakers pleased that Obama seeks approval on Syria
jlynott@timesleader.com

JERRY LYNOTT

Lawmakers representing Northeastern Pennsylvania in Washington, D.C. welcomed President Barack Obama’s decision to seek congressional approval to use military force against Syria for the alleged use of chemical weapons against civilians. The president on Saturday said as commander in chief he believes he has the authority to take military action without authorization from Congress, but will present his case to the House and Senate that

his approach is necessary in response to the deadly attacks and to punish Syrian President Bashar Assad. U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, saw firsthand the effects of the conflict when he visited the region in April and met with Syrian refugees on the Turkish border, he said. Casey, who participated Friday in an intelligence briefing on Syria as a member of the National Security Working Group, said a debate on Syria policy is “very important and I wish it had started sooner.” “I have no doubt that Bashar

al-Assad has used chemical weapons against his own people,” he said. Casey, co-chair of the Weapons of Mass Destruction and Terrorism Caucus, pointed out that in November he presented a “comprehensive approach to the Syrian crisis” and “called for a more assertive approach to the conflict in Syria,” believing the Assad regime was a threat to the stability of the region and the broader security interests of the U.S. “Every day that Assad remains in power helps Iran and Hezbollah who plot against the

United States and its allies,” Casey said in a prepared statement. “I believe that it is in the U.S. national security interest to respond to this most recent chemical attack. I appreciate the administration’s efforts to consult with Congress about the situation as we collectively assess our response.” U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton said he applauded the president and looked forward to examining the case to be made to lawmakers before voting on whether to authorize the use of force. “America is at its strongest when proper chan-

nels are followed and the nation speaks with one voice,” Barletta said. Barletta said that he wanted to hear what “overriding American national security interests are at stake” to support military strikes. “Rogue nations have threatened to attack Israel in retaliation for any American action,” said Barletta. “There is also the very real fear that al-Qaeda is heavily involved with the rebel forces which would seemingly benefit from our intervention. Finally, it is troublesome that even our closest ally, Great Britain, has

rejected participation through a vote of its Parliament.” Earlier in the week U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Zionsville, said it appeared “to be an established fact” that chemical weapons were used and, coupled with Assad’s behavior, there was a national security interest to the U.S. “This calls for an American response, being mindful to avoid a long-term military engagement in the Syrian civil war,” said Toomey. “The president must explain to Congress and the American people the objectives and risks of any action.”

Syria
From page 1A should take military action against Syrian regime targets,” Obama said. The president said the mission’s scope would be limited and he was “confident we can hold the Assad regime accountable for their use of chemical weapons, deter this kind of behavior, and degrade their capacity to carry it out.” Secretary of State John Kerry Friday presented evidence that the Syrian regime used chemical weapons in an Aug. 21 attack in a Damascus suburb. The U.S. evidence, Obama said Saturday, “corroborates what the world can plainly see — hospitals overflowing with victims; terrible images of the dead. All told, well over 1,000 people were murdered. Several hundred of them were children — young girls and boys gassed to death by their own government.” The attack, Obama said, “is an assault on human dignity,” and “presents a serious danger” to U.S. national security. “It risks making a mockery of the global prohibition on the use of chemical weapons,” he said. “It endangers our friends and our partners along Syria’s borders, including Israel, Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon and Iraq. It could lead to escalating use of chemical weapons, or their proliferation to terrorist groups who would do our people harm.” Congress wants more details, and senators Saturday were briefed by administration officials, the third such briefing in three days. Another is scheduled Sunday for House members, and more briefings are planned during the week. Obama administration officials began writing a resolution — but not a declaration for war — for Congress to consider when it returns. Congress’ role in advising and consenting to war has become murky. Though Congress has the constitutional authority to formally declare war, it last did so at the outset of World War II. Recent presidents have often avoided seeking legislative consent before launching military action. The 1973 War Powers Resolution, approved during the turmoil of the Vietnam War, says a president must consult with Congress. Obama stressed Saturday that he has done that, and has the authority to strike Syria now. Everything is ready, he said. “The Chairman has indicated to me that our capacity to execute this mission is not time-sensitive; it will be effective tomorrow, or next week, or one month from now. And I’m prepared to give that order,” the president said. But, he added, “having made my decision as commander-in-chief based on what I am convinced is our national security interests, I’m also mindful that I’m the president of the world’s oldest constitutional democracy.” Saturday, House Republican leaders signaled they were ready for a debate, and suggested it would go for a few days starting Sept. 9. “This provides the president time to make his case to Congress and the American people,” the House Republican leadership said in a joint statement. “We are glad the president is seeking authorization for any military action in Syria in response to serious, substantive questions being raised.” However, Rep. Peter

Estimates are 100,000 Syrian civilians have been killed and all of a sudden the U.S. government has manufactured the excuse of the use of chemical weapons in Syria to use that excuse to intervene in Syria,” said Tristan Brosnan, 25, of Washington. In Boston, more than 200 protesters demonstrated in the Boston Commons against the possible use of force. They waved signs and chanted “Don’t Bomb Syria!” over and over again, and at least one speaker said congressional authorization wouldn’t make an attack acceptable. More than two dozen protesters gathered at the Arkansas Capitol to oppose an attack. Some wore T-shirts proclaiming “NO U.S. INTERVENTION IN SYRIA.” “I had friends that died in Iraq, and I don’t want more people to die for nothing,” said Dominic Box, 23, expressing some of the fears of a war-weary public. In downtown Chicago, about 40 people walked quietly in the rain, circling a sculpture in Daley Plaza. Some carried signs that read “No War In Syria” and “Shut It Down.” “I don’t believe in spreading democracy the way they’re doing it,” said Tyke Conrady, 44, who attended the protest with three friends. In London, more than 1,000 protesters carrying Syrian flags and placards marched to Downing Street and rallied in Trafalgar Square. Some hailed the parliament’s vote Thursday against British participation as a victory. And about 700 people turned out for an antiwar demonstration in Frankfurt, Germany, police said. Organizers said only a “sovereign, independent Syria free of foreign interference” would make it possible for the Syrian people to shape the country’s future. At a protest organized by left-wing opposition parties in Amman, Jordan, Kawthar Arrar described any military intervention as “an aggression on the whole Arab world.” The protesters gathered outside the U.S. embassy, chanting slogans and setting fire to American and Israeli flags.

From page 1A in hospitals and businesses. “We’re all competing for a small pool of interpreters,” Shucosky said. Growing concern The county budget allocates $80,000 for interpreter services, a number that might increase next year because a new initiative within the judicial system calls for both criminal and civil proceedings to have an interpreter present if needed, Shucosky said. Currently, only criminal proceedings call for interpreters to be present. In Luzerne County, there is a certified American Sign Language interpreter, Martha Andras, of Hazleton, and two Spanish interpreters: Joussy Olsen, of White Haven, who is certified by the state, and works as an independent contractor, and Thelma Kennedy, of Sugarloaf, who is qualified by the state and is employed by

the county. According to the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts, interpreters who are certified are paid between $45 and $60 a hour while those who are qualified receive between $35 and $40 an hour. The county is fortunate to have Kennedy on staff, but her schedule is packed and she cannot do all of the work herself, Shucosky said. The county previously had two other interpreters, but in October 2012 they did not pass the state test governed by the AOPC, which now

requires a more stringent state certification exam than in the past. Silvana Calderon’s language abilities help in her duties as a secretary in District Judge Dixon’s office. “She is a blessing,” said Dixon. “She isn’t qualified by the state, so we can’t use her for criminal proceedings. But she helps in almost every other aspect.” Statewide judicial issue At the July statewide judicial conference in Hershey a major topic discussed among Court of Common Pleas judges

was interpreter services, Shucosky said. “Now, they want to make sure interpreters are available for civil proceedings,” he said. That will spread the minimal amount of interpreters in the county even thinner, Shucosky said, and will require the county to use outside resources more frequently. Both county and magisterial district courts have the option to use an outside company that provides more than 120 language translations by phone, but these can be used only for court pro-

ceedings less than 30 minutes, Shucosky said. The other option Shucosky has is to call interpreters who serve the state to see if they are available to come to Luzerne County. The county employs one person who is in charge of contacting interpreters on a daily basis, Shucosky said. Typically, an interpreter is needed up to six times a week for court proceedings. That number will only increase with the additional of civil matters, Shucosky said. “We have 1,700 new custody cases each year,” he said. “Those alone will call for a greater need for interpreters.” It is difficult to schedule out-of-town interpreters because they aren’t always available when needed and must often drive significant distances to get to Wilkes-Barre. Shucosky said Pittsburgh is the farthest away an interpreter has traveled to Luzerne

County, and that the county recently had to locate a Creole interpreter – twice – for court proceedings. In other court proceedings in recent history, the county has had to find interpreters who speak Swahili, Russian and Montenegrin. In March 2012, several Spanish-speaking interpreters had to participate in a homicide trial in which one defendant spoke no English and several witnesses and family members needed translators for the trial and and sentencing three months later. The proceeding was lengthy at times as an interpreter translated a witness’ testimony into English or while an interpreter spoke to the defendant, Rodolfo Hiraldo Perez, of Hazleton. If an interpreter is needed for a hearing and then the hearing is canceled, said Shucosky said, the county must still pay

a cancellation fee. “I can understand that because they’ve declined other work to help us,” he said. Translation issues The state-mandated test often calls for interpreters to translate slang terms or terms that aren’t typically used any more, such as “bailiff,” Shucosky said. Languages such as Spanish also come with different dialects with which an interpreter may not be familiar with. Despite those complications, Shucosky said, he does not think the AOPC testing should be changed or made easier. “You don’t want the misinterpretation of one word to affect the whole outcome of a court proceeding.” The AOPC does provide training and seminars to interpreters, held throughout the year. The testing is done orally and certification is required every two years, according to the AOPC.

Judge
From page 1A such as James Tupper in Trucksville, don’t typically deal with a large volume of non-English-speaking cases. “We very seldom need an interpreter,” Tupper said. “But we do have them from time to time (at hearings).” Others, such as Joseph Zola and Dixon, have bilingual secretaries on staff. Typically, for a short proceeding, Dixon uses a speakerphone in his small courtroom to call a stateprovided telephone number to reach an interpreter. Dixon chooses from a list of several languages and waits – sometimes several minutes – for the interpreter to take the call. Then, Dixon and the parties involved crowd around his bench, intently listening to the speakerphone, sometimes shouting over it in heated discussions. “It’s a safety concern for everyone and is sometimes hard to understand if everyone is shouting over each other,” Dixon said. Dixon’s secretary, Silvana Calderon, is able to assist in some civil proceedings if things become too difficult, but since she is not a state-approved interpreter she cannot help with criminal proceedings. At least 80 percent of the people who come through his office see Calderon first because they need help in Spanish, Dixon said. Dixon also uses a videoconferencing monitor that allows him to dial in to an interpreter at the Luzerne County Courthouse, and also enables him to reach the county prison, state prisons and locations outside of Pennsylvania. The videoconferencing machine, called Polycom, is typically used for latenight or early-morning arraignments, but Dixon said he has used it once to have an interpreter during a proceeding. “It’s saving tax money and time, keeping police close by and not requiring everyone to travel,” Dixon said. Dixon can use the telephone dial-an-interpreter for short proceedings, he said, but if a preliminary hearing is scheduled for a criminal proceeding an interpreter needs to be present. In that case, Dixon must notify county court three weeks ahead of when he plans on having the hearing to make sure an interpreter is available. “It’s not fair to anyone who cannot understand fully what is being said in court,” Dixon said on behalf of Spanish and English speaking individuals participating in the same proceeding. “Sometimes we have family or friends translate for civil proceedings to make it go easier,” Dixon said, adding a typical proceeding can be extended by many hours due to the need for translators. Dixon knows enough Spanish from his time as a Hazleton city police officer to keep himself safe, he said, but suggested it would only be beneficial to him to learn how to fluently speak the language. “Right now, with our county budget and shortage of interpreters, there’s just not enough resources (to address language needs),” Dixon said. So far this year Dixon has processed 4,100 cases through his office, he said, and expects to have at least the second-highest caseload of county district courts by the end of the year. His office needs many resources that have been lacking, but language interpreters are among the most needed, he said.

No Child
From page 1A Schools also had to hit minimum goals in graduation or attendance rates, and test participation rates. The proficiency goals also had to be reached by “subgroups” of students that statistically do poorly on such tests, including special education, English Language Learners, minorities and low-income students. Hit all the goals and a school was said to have made “Adequate Yearly Progress.” Making AYP became the holy grail for public schools. Missing it created an image problem; missing it repeatedly brought state action ranging from requirements to increase student support to allowing students to transfer to another school. The ultimate consequence: A state takeover of the school. Unattainable standards What happened? Critics argue reality kicked in. As 2014 approached and the proficiency percentage kept climbing, more schools missed AYP. Consider: In 2005, only seven Luzerne County Schools missed AYP; in 2012, only 19 schools made AYP (the number of schools varied slightly over the years as some closed and others reconfigured in ways that meant they were not teaching grades being tested; last year the county had 62 schools measured for AYP). As the trend became obvious and the federal government failed to take any action to revise No Child Left Behind (it should have been re-authorized in 2007) the U.S. Department of Education started granting waivers letting states set up alternative systems of accountability. Pennsylvania was late in the game; 41 states already had sought and won waivers. “Essentially they are acknowledging that every kid is not going to score proficient,” Luzerne Intermediate Unit Executive Director Anthony Grieco said. “Take a special education kid who, diagnostics tell us, is functioning four or five years below grade level. It’s not fair to expect him to take the same test as other students his age.” The LIU provides a variety of services to area districts, primarily special education. Along with the state’s 28 other Intermediate Units, it is tasked with helping districts adapt to what will replace AYP: School Performance Profiles, or SPPs, which will report how a school has done in meeting four “Annual Measurable Objectives,” or AMOs. (AYP might be dead; government acronyms are alive and kicking). In a nutshell, the waiver moves the state away from a fixed proficiency goal and looks instead at individual student progress. Here are the essentials, as spelled out in state documents: • Instead of labeling schools as making or not making AYP, the state will recognize schools by three designations: “Priority,” “Focus” or “Reward.” • The designations will apply only to schools with a “high percentage” of “Title I” students. “Title I” is shorthand for the federal law that provides money for education programs helping low-income students. According to Pennsylvania Department of Education spokesman Timothy Eller, there are 48 such schools in Luzerne county. No high schools are on the list, though WilkesBarre Area’s junior/senior high schools (GAR and Meyers) are. • The three designations will be determined based on aggregate math and reading proficiency in grade schools, and on the state’s new “Keystone” exams in algebra I and literature for high schools. (The state replaced the 11th-grade math and reading tests with Keystone exams in several subjects, which are given when a course is completed and can be retaken multiple times). • Unlike AYP, which was based on absolute goals, the “reward,” focus” and “priority” designations will be relative. The highest 5 percent of Title I schools will be “reward” schools, the lowest 5 percent will be “priority” schools, while the lowest 10 percent — excluding those designated as priority — will be “focus” schools. A school can also become a focus school if the graduation rate is below 60 percent or test participation is below 95 percent. • All public schools will get the new, annual SPPs, letting the public see how they are doing in reaching their AMOs, but only the “Title I” schools will get one of the three designations —or no designation, if they are between the bottom 10 percent and top 5 percent. “Reward” schools will get public recognition and be eligible to compete for state grants, though that assumes the state will have money to give out as grants. Priority and Focus schools will get increased assistance from the state to improve student achievement, but might also be required to make substantial “interventions,” which could include replacing principals or teachers. What are the AMOs? Along with test participation and graduation rate goals, schools must close the “achievement gap” in test results for all students,though Grieco noted educators are still awaiting “guidance” on what that means exactly. “It’s happening late and the state Department of Education is is really in flux,” Grieco said, noting there technically is no secretary of education and the acting secretary, William Harner, has only been on the job a few weeks. Schools must also close the achievement gap for “historically underperforming groups,” which refers to those subgroups mentioned before. But Grieco noted the new system doesn’t treat each group separately, instead looking at them as one large group. “I think it’s more equitable,” Grieco said. Under AYP, a student could belong to multiple subgroups — a minority English Language Learner from a lowincome family, for example, and a poor test result would count against the school in each subgroup separately. “Now that student only counts once.” The new system will rely heavily on the Pennsylvania Valueadded Assessment System tests, which are designed to measure individual student achievement each year against what that student should have, statistically, accomplished. The new system also lets schools use other assessments to demonstrate student progress. West Side Career and Technology Executive Director Nancy Tkatch said this could be a big boon for schools like hers, where students attend full-time and receive both their academic classes and career training. West Side never officially made AYP, which was gauged by the 11th-grade math and reading tests. Tkatch said the new system will also look at results in the National Occupational Competency Testing Institute (NOCTI) Tests, and that West Side students do very well in those — though she added there has been big improvement in the traditional state tests as well. “Measuring each student’s growth rather than performance as a whole will favor us because we see significant growth within each year,” Tkatch said. Tkatch is less sure of one other component of the waiver: using data in the SPPs and AMOs in evaluating teachers under the state’s new teacher evaluation system. “I”m not sure one way or another yet,” she said. “There are other ways to measure teacher effectiveness, and I’m not sure that’s the best emphasis.”

A horse and carriage sweep animal-lovers away

Vows

MARY THEREsE BIEBEL

When newlyweds Sarah Abrams and Eric Wagner emerged from Our Lady of Victory Church at Harveys Lake on Aug. 17, Sarah remembers wondering, “Why is there a horse in the parking lot?” “I was on cloud nine, and it didn’t even hit me,” she said. “Then I saw a white rose on the horse and thought, ‘Oh my gosh. That’s for us.’” Parents of the bride, Joan and Bill Abrams of Dallas, had succeeded in keeping the horse-drawn carriage a surprise, and it was an appropriate one, considering how much their daughter and new son-in-law love animals. Back when Sarah, 27, and Eric, 26, were both pharmacy students at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, a little dog named Winston helped forge their bond. A beagle mix, Winston was “a malnourished, poor little pup” when Sarah rescued him from the streets. Those streets weren’t the safest place, so when Eric noticed his classmate out walking the rescued dog, he offered to accompany them. “There was a turning point in our relationship,” Sarah said, remembering how she and Eric nursed Winston back to health after he was struck by a car. While the dog was recuperating, it took both of them to carry him up and down stairs, with one person supporting his back legs in a towel harness and the other opening doors. “If we could get through this,” she remembers thinking, “we could get through a lot together.” Winston has died, but the newlyweds have new pets — a 120-pound black lab/bull mastiff named Dakota that Sarah gave to Eric as a Christmas present, and a black lab/boxer named Bella they inherited from Eric’s sister, Nicole, after she died in a 2007 car accident. That was the same year Sarah’s sister, Beth Abrams Finarelli, was recovering from a hemorrhagic stroke and a series of seizures she suffered while pregnant with her son, Mikey. “She’s one of the strongest people I know,” Sarah said of her sister. “She taught me how to fight back against the things life throws at you.” During the wedding, the couple honored both sisters, having Beth serve as matron of honor, and lighting a candle in front of a photograph of Nicole at the church. The couple got engaged in 2011 on the beach at Cape May, N.J., where they were sharing a picnic and bottle of wine. “The reason I picked there (for the proposal) was because it was her childhood vacation place,” Eric said.

Jeff steinberg will bring his message of inspiration and hope to Emmanuel Assembly of God at Harveys Lake on Friday.

“There was a turning point in our relationship. If we could get through this, we could get through a lot together.”

— sarah Abrams wagner, Remembering how she and her now-husband nursed a dog back to health after he was struck by a car.

“She’d gone there every year of her life.” The sentimental choice was perfect, said Sarah, who had come to believe Eric would be an ideal life partner when she saw how he interacted with his family. “When I saw how he treated his mom, when I saw how he acted with his own family, that made it all clear to me,” she said. See HORSE | 2B

A 5-year-old boy once approached Jeff Steinberg and in the simple, direct way children have, pointed at the hook Steinberg uses to grip a microphone. “What’s that?” the boy wanted to know. “I told him it’s a hook,” Steinberg said. “What do you have that for?” the boy asked. “Because I don’t have any hands,” came the answer. “Why don’t you have any hands?” “I used to bite my fingernails, and I went too far.” Steinberg, who will visit Emmanuel Assembly of God church at Harveys Lake on Friday, said audiences usually laugh and relax when he tells that little story because his humor shows he’s comfortable with what many would see as a disability. A singer and inspirational speaker, Steinberg was born without hands or arms and with malformed legs. He stands about 4 foot 6, much shorter than the 6-foot-8 passerby who once tapped him on the shoulder in a parking lot and asked “Are you driving that red Lincoln?” “Yes,” Steinberg told him. “It’s too big to push.” There’s that humor again. But there is a serious side to Steinberg’s message. “I’m a masterpiece in See LITTLE GIANT | 2B

The Band Perry living and breathing its music
CHICAGO — Before reuniting for dinner at their parents’ home during a recent break from touring, the three siblings who make up The Band Perry — known best for their quadruple-platinum hit “If I Die Young” — and their parents — who regularly join the band on tour — agreed to act like a normal family and stay away from talking about music. The result? “We sat in silence for a half hour,” said Kimberly Perry, on speaker phone with her brothers recently, adding that they eventually got back to talking music. “We could not get away from it.” Music has been a big part of the family’s life long before the country trio’s self-titled debut album sold 1.5 million copies and it was nominated for best new artist at the 2012 Grammys. Kimberly was part of a band with highschool friends when she was 15, and her brothers, Reid and Neil, then 10 and 8, opened up for them with their band. In October, the siblings will celebrate the 15-year anniversary of their first show. Once Kimberly’s bandmates moved on, she formed The Band Perry with her brothers in 2005 — which she said was always in the cards. As the story goes, their parents were just waiting for the siblings to get closer in height. Asked if her ex-bandmates regret their decision to part ways, Kimberly said “They all moved on to various, cool jobs” before admitting, with some prodding, “Maybe a couple of them wish they stuck around.” Kimberly and Co. have come a long way from their early shows, which took place at churches, restaurants and fairs. In 2005, they played acoustic shows at Walmarts across the country as part of the New Faces of Country Tour. “We played anywhere and everywhere we possibly could,” Kimberly said. “There were so many shows we played where there were more people on stage than in the crowd. But we were encouraged to play for two people like it was 200 people, and eventually the right people (would) cross our path. And it was true. We did a thousand shows before we had a song on the radio. I wouldn’t trade that time for anything. The live element is our first love. We’re able to handle whatever comes our way because it’s probably already happened on stage.” (Kimberly suffered bruising and an abrasion to her leg, not to mention a ripped dress, when overly excited fans pulled her toward the barriers during a show last month in Bowmanville, Ontario, outside of Toronto.) In April, the band released its sophomore album, “Pioneer,” which includes the singles “Better Dig Two,” “Done.” and “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely.” All three band members agreed, in unison, that this album, which has sold more than 400,000 copies, was more difficult to make than their 2010 debut. That might explain, in part, why they waited three years to release it. “There were moments when (the album) was our best friend and moments when it was our chief nemesis, but it was always our teacher,” Kimberly said of “Pioneer,” which on our days inside a tour bus and were changed producers during the record- talking about life rather than living it. “We definitely felt a responsibility ing process. “We learned to be creative on the go. We were forced to be inspired to top (our debut album). Having the

opportunity to record a second album is a gift. We rewrote the song ‘I’m a Keeper’ four times. It was really challenging. But in the end, it all paid off.”

From page 1B progress,” he said. “I’ve thought about being made in God’s image. What exactly does that mean? I don’t believe my physical appearance is an accident. In my opinion I am created to be just as he imagined. That allows me to say to people, ‘You don’t have to feel sorry for me. I’m not a mistake. Now, what are you going to do with what he’s making out of you?’ “I am really hoping a lot of people come and hear Mr. Steinberg talk,” said the Rev. Lawrence. D. Reed, who invited the speaker to come to the church. “He’s going to touch a lot of hearts.” Steinberg, 62, likes to encourage people, from church groups to school groups to prison inmates, no matter what sort of difficulties they face. Over the years, he admits, he’s also enjoyed proving people wrong, especially when their expectations were low. His mother, for example, predicted he’d spend his life in an institution. His father told him he’d never be able to drive a car. “I’ve driven too many miles to count,” Steinberg said. “I’m married. I have children. I’m a recording artist. I travel the world.” Steinberg maintains two distinct websites, jeffsteinberg.net and tinygiant.com, in keeping with two styles of presentations he gives. One style is motivational with a “get-off-the-couch,” “work-toward-your-goals” message appropriate for public schools and other secular groups. The other style includes a spiritual dimension, with Steinberg talking about faith and his belief that, he is, to quote the Bible, “fearfully and wonderfully made.” His local appearance on Friday at Emmanuel Assembly of God will be the spiritual presentation and will include Steinberg singing some songs written for him by his friend Jeffrey L. Rudloff.

ing you forget that she’s Oprah Winfrey so you can accept and embrace the character she’s playing.” That character, Gloria Gaines, is the conflicted, proud wife of Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker), a White House butler who serves eight presidents. Gloria grows discontented by the long hours required by her husband’s job. “You and the White House can kiss my …,” she tells Cecil at one point. “I don’t care what goes on in that White House. I care what goes on in this house.” Though Gloria isn’t the title character, director Daniels affords her plenty of screen time — even when she isn’t speaking. Often in group scenes where she has little to

say, Daniels keeps the shot tight on Winfrey, affording her the opportunity to reveal the inner life of her complicated character. “Those eyes are mesmerizing,” Daniels says, while admitting, at the same time, that not everyone seeing the rough cut of the movie shared his enthusiasm for those long close-ups of Winfrey. “You know what it is? She’s got Bette Davis eyes. They were hypnotic, and I was seduced.” Will Oscar voters be similarly beguiled? Academy members can be star-struck too, particularly when the talent in question comes from outside the usual circle of filmmaking friends and acquaintances.

The Miami Herald

“It’s Not Love, It’s Just Paris,” by Patricia Engel; Grove (272 pages, $25) ••• A young woman on her own in Paris for a year, living in a grand but faded Left Bank mansion-turnedrooming-house, meets a mysterious young man who captures her heart. From the Luxembourg Gardens to the Ile Saint-Louis, they wander the city together, taking shelter in cafes in the rain and spending overheated nights in her tunnel-like room with a balcony that overlooks the garden. As a coming-of-age novel, “It’s Not Love, It’s Just Paris” might sound as if its theme is rather well-trod, but the title puts you on notice. This is no saccharine tale of awakening. Rather, it’s a cleareyed recasting of a classic storyline executed with confidence and just enough city-of-lights magic by Miami author Patricia Engel to conjure up something that manages to be familiar and new. This is a novel to get lost in. Lita del Cielo is the daughter of two Colombian orphans who made up their last name — it means “of the sky” — just as they created a different life for themselves and their children in the United States. Their impressive climb to success started with floor-sweeping at night and a kiosk selling arepas by day and has resulted in a global

food distribution company, with Lita’s father nicknamed the King of Latin Foods and her mother called Our Lady of New Jersey for the never-ending helping hand she extends to new arrivals. But Lita chafes under the weight of her parents’ expectations that the life they’ve built should be more than enough for her. She wrangles permission from them for a year “off” to explore Paris while she takes classes. Because her father won’t let her live alone, she secures a room in the crumbling mansion called “The House of Stars” run by Seraphine, a countess nearing 90 with kohl-lined eyes and a mahogany sleigh bed she rarely leaves. The house is populated by other young, wealthy women on various types of sabbaticals from their real lives. Most are self-declared artists with bloodlines they brag about, “waving the family crest rings on their fingers.” Lita is admitted to this company mostly on the strength of her family money, nouveau though it might be. She is ripe for a big change — why go to Paris otherwise? — and so when she meets the elusive, off-kilter Cato, she is smitten. The more he holds her off, the more she wants to be with him. She moves into his home outside the city, abandoning her classes, playing house with him. It’s a dizzying time until complications set in. She learns he is sick, his lungs diseased by the winds of Chernobyl

when he was child. Additionally troubling: He’s the son of Antoine de Manou, a notorious political figure who advocates keeping all foreigners out of France. This disaster-in-the-making Lita refuses to see; she’s filled with the power of young love. But how true is her love when all the time, the clock is ticking on her year? What will she do when her time is up? Renounce the life and fortune that her parents worked so hard to build? Stay in Paris with Cato? Engel’s spare writing — she teaches at the University of Miami and her debut, “Vida,” was a New York Times Notable Book of 2010 — offers a needed counterweight to the romance of the story and setting. Engel crafts her sentences with narrowed eyes and a sardonic air, heavy on observation, discerning in details. A waiter on the prowl for sex scratches his back on the edge of Lita’s doorway like a cat. Two French girls wear “nearly identical knee-grazing floral dresses” with black bras peeking out, barely covering breasts they purchased together in Rio the year before because it was the fashion. And Cato has a marbled complexion, scruffy brown hair that looks as though he cut it himself “while driving or frying eggs” and a misaligned smile. For Lita, worldly and lonely, ripe for passion and adventure, this world and Cato in particular are the answer to a question she

didn’t know she was asking. Who is she really, besides the daughter of immigrants and a child of privilege? Near the beginning of the book, during a conversation with friends at a Paris flea market, someone tells Lita that her original reason for coming to France — to get an education — is false. “You came for a story,” the friend tells her. He’s right about Lita and, by extension, about us. We’re here for a story, too, the sort of full-on, hurts-so-good tale of transformation that Engel delivers with a surprising mix of tenderness and skepticism. And even if we know generally where Engel is leading us, she reminds us: Sometimes the journey is the point.

“Fifty Shades of Grey” isn’t just a fun, racy read, according to a new study that finds the bestseller glamorizes violence against women. Analyzing the naughty novel, psychologists at Michigan State University and Ohio State University concluded that its characters’ behaviors are consistent with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s official definition of intimate partner violence — and that the book perpetuates dangerous abuse patterns. Intimate partner violence is pervasive in the novel, “occurring in nearly every interaction” between its protagonists, said Ohio State University researcher Amy Bonomi, lead author of the report, which was published Monday in the Journal of Women’s Health. Written by British author E.L. James and published in 2011, “Fifty Shades” describes the relationship between multimillionaire Christian Grey and college student Anastasia Steele. The book contains explicit scenes depicting bondage and discipline, domination and submission, and sadomasochism, or BDSM. But the study had issues beyond the bedroom scenes. After hearing all the buzz about the book, Bonomi and her colleagues decided to take a “systematic approach to understanding the abuse patterns” in Christian and Anastasia’s relationship, analyzing abuse tactics in the first 124 pages of the book to

Intimate partner violence affects around 35 percent of women globally, the World Health Organization reported in June. “Fifty Shades of Grey” is the first in a trilogy that has sold more than 70 million copies worldwide and ranks as the fastest-selling paperback of all time. A film adaptation is in the works.

see how they measured up with the CDC’s standard. According to the federal agency’s guidelines, intimate partner violence includes “physical, sexual, or psychological harm by a current or former partner or spouse.” Physical violence includes acts such as slapping and choking, while sexual violence entails forced sex acts, often induced through the use of alcohol or other drugs. Psychological or emotional abuse can involve humiliation, social isolation and stalking. The book depicts multiple elements of such abuse, Bonomi said. Additionally, Anastasia “suffers reactions typical of abused women,” changing her behavior to maintain peace in the relationship and, over time, becoming disempowered and socially isolated. For example, the researchers pointed out, she withholds information about her plans to

visit friends and family members and avoids social outings so as not to anger Christian. “That is exactly what we see in women in abusive relationships,” Bonomi said. “The abuser is very good at controlling social connections by intimidating the victim.” Bonomi said also that it’s wrong to consider the book a depiction of a healthy BDSM relationship. In consensual BDSM relationships, partners take negotiations seriously and respect each others’ boundaries, she said. In “Fifty Shades,” she noted, Christian bullies Anastasia and plies her with alcohol to coerce her into sexual acts that she finds uncomfortable. “Consenting BDSM relationships are fine,” Bonomi said. “But the relationship we see between Christian and Anastasia is different. What we see in them is a clear pattern of abuse.” Cris Sullivan, who

researches gender-based violence at Michigan State University and wasn’t involved in the study, agreed, explaining that Anastasia is in the relationship “not because she enjoys it, but because she’s trying to keep the man” — reinforcing a message “that is very pervasive in our society.” “That’s not a message we want to keep sending to women or men,” Sullivan said. “I’m hoping (the study) will lead people to talk and think about the book a little more critically than just a hot little summer read.” The study authors don’t call for the novel to be banned but rather for “a greater societal awareness of the abuse occurring in the book,” Bonomi said. “This is really a teachable moment when we should be talking with young people about what abuse is and what are some of the strategies to prevent it.”

Landlady snoops in‘The Affairs of Others’ Demotion, devotion
MARION WINIK
Newsday

“The Affairs of Others” by Amy Grace Loyd; Picador ($24) ••• ‘The Affairs of Others,” a debut novel by Amy Grace Loyd, former literary editor of Playboy, has such an intense and heady narrative voice that it recalls those occasions when a substance one has just ingested is a whole lot stronger than expected. One is overwhelmed by the scent of a gardenia, by disturbing sounds from the upstairs apartment, or perhaps by the features on the face of the policeman who has just knocked at the door. He “pulsed past me and roamed feet from me; a wiry man, it appeared, with the city all through him. He had a long bone of a nose on a short face, a smallish cleft chin, a profusion of eyebrows. … I tried not to see so much, not today, not the wave in his thick hair or his sunloving skin and the wide pores there, or the day-old beard coming in what was a field of hard black pushing and pushing.” This is thirty-something Brooklyn landlady Celia Cassill, whose husband

died five years ago, leaving her with a mindaltering dose of pain and enough money to buy a building where she has rented out three of the four apartments to people she believes will keep to themselves. At first, in the imme-

diate wake of her loss, Celia developed Cheryl Strayed syndrome (crazy promiscuity as a result of profound grief, a state Strayed defined in her award-winning essay, “Love of My Life”). Celia stops going to abandoned diners with strangers on

the subway but is obsessed with both privacy and violation, is lonely, fierce and looking too hard at other people’s pores. Also, she has a medicine cabinet full of every drug in the world. Welcome to “Blue Velvet” in Brooklyn. On the top floor of the building is an ancient ferry captain who Celia has been feeding and caring for. He goes missing, causing his daughter to come over and start a fistfight with Celia, who roams the city looking for him. Next floor: a young couple on the rocks, whose life Celia keeps up with by snooping when they’re not home. Above her is a gay man named George. The book opens with a party to celebrate his departure for Europe. Though it is not allowed, he has sublet his place to a beautiful middle-age woman named Hope. Hope is on the run from her marriage, has two grown children, a violent lover and a ravaged erotic intensity that Celia is drawn to beyond hope of resistance. The lost ferry captain and the sexual vortex surrounding Hope are the main elements of the rather modest plot, but though not much happens, Celia winds up in somewhat better shape to enjoy the party that ends the book. Those who look for their experiences of altered consciousness through the legal drug of fiction will be well satisfied.

form well-told tales in ‘The Dying Hours’
OLINE H. COGDILL
Sun Sentinel

“The Dying Hours” by Mark Billingham; Grove Atlantic ($25) ••• British author Mark Billingham’s talent for sculpting intensely dark police procedurals complements his skill at pinpointing believable contemporary nightmares. At the helm is Detective Inspector Tom Thorne, a good cop, an insightful investigator and often a loose cannon, going off on his own hunches. That he often is right still doesn’t sit right with his supervisors. But Billingham uses Tom more as a mirror reflecting the changing times, the horrors that can seep into daily lives when least expected. Billingham also is never afraid to shake up Tom’s personal life and career as he does in his 11th novel in this series. In “The Dying Hours,” Tom has crossed the line once too often and he is put back in uniform—“the Queen’s Cloth”— and demoted to Inspector. The uniform is not a good fit. His depression over being “slapped down” erupts at work and at home where he lives with Det. Sgt. Helen Weeks and her 18-month-old son. Tom no longer has the power he did when he headed a homicide squad. His former colleagues show him little respect, and his cases seem to be routine. But Tom sees nothing usual about the apparent suicide of an elderly couple. He believes they were murdered, but no one will believe him even when he links the couple to other suicides of the elderly. His supervisors dismiss Tom’s theories, saying it is not uncommon for old people to end their lives, especially those who are ill and without families. But each of

Detective Inspector Tom Thorne is at the helm in this dark police procedural.

these people was healthy and had loved ones, even if some families lived far away. Tom gets reluctant help from former colleagues Det. Sgt. Dave Holland and Det. Insp. Yvonne Kitson and pathologist Phil Hendricks, but even they don’t believe him. Tom’s new position gives Billingham a heady advantage to find new avenues to explore in this character. “The Dying Hours” forces Tom to work even more as a solo agent, to rely on his own ideas and to re-evaluate his own role as a cop. Tom is accustomed to closing cases, to being “a glory hunter,” and begins to wonder if that is the only reason why he is a cop. He also looks at his role as a person. The murdered people were each mourned by their families. Will his relationship with Helen last? Will anyone care if he dies? The relentless pace of “The Dying Hours” doesn’t slow down until the last word, proving why Billingham continues to be a best-seller in Great Britain.

More college bookstores offering book rentals
Students heading to college can expect to spend about $662 a year on textbooks and other course materials, according to The National Association of College Stores. But more and more college bookstores are offering alternatives through textbook rental programs, the trade group said. The number of association member stores offering rentals has jumped to nearly 3,000 from just 300 in the fall of 2009, said Charles Schmidt, a spokesman for the group. “Such print-version rental programs can save a student between 45 percent (and) 66 percent off the price of a new print textbook, and is often less expensive than digital formats,” Schmidt said in a statement. Textbook rentals from college stores saved students about $450 million during the 2012-13 school year, the association said. Schmidt said the stores offer other options as well. All sell used books, while some offer free shipping and guaranteed buybacks. More than three-quarters of students still prefer print versions of their textbooks to digital, the trade group said. Textbooks savings tips The National Association of College Stores offers the following tips on how students can save on textbook purchases while purchasing from the campus store. • Become a fan of your campus store’s Facebook page and follow it on Twitter. Stores often give advance notice of moneysaving specials to followers or fans. • Be cautious of hackers, spammers and phishers when purchasing course materials online from outside/unknown sources. Items might not arrive on time, be incorrect, or not include required access codes. Don’t forget to consider shipping expenses in the total cost of the textbook, and check refund policies. Your local campus store guarantees the correct title and edition chosen by your instructor. • Consider renting print or electronic textbooks. • If multiple books are listed on a syllabus, check with the store to see if there are customized options that the professor, store and publisher have created that is less-expensive and contains only the content the professor requires. • Look into buying used textbooks. College stores strive to provide as many used textbooks as possible, but they can sell out quickly. Shop the store early or buy directly from your college store’s web site to take advantage of usedbook sales. • Know your store’s refund policy, especially deadlines. This way, you won’t be disappointed if you drop a class. • Keep receipts. Most stores require them for returns. Also, textbook receipts are helpful during tax season when filing for the American Opportunity Tax Credit. For details on how to apply for the credit, go to www.textbookaid.org. • Don’t write in or unwrap books until you’re certain you’ll be keeping them. Most sellers won’t offer full credit for books that have been marked or bundles that have been opened. • When buying locally, consider paying cash or by debit card to avoid credit card fees and interest. But use a credit card when buying from online sellers in case disputes arise. • If you have questions, as. Your college store professional is the course material expert on campus.

Another featured speaker, John Ficca, program director of Hands On Educational Services Inc., who taught hospitality/culinary management, partnered with Hyatt Hotel Corporation and the Florida Division of Vocational Rehabilitation in 1998 to develop a realitybased, hospitality training program for persons with disabilities. Hands on Education @ Hyatt began at one hotel in Florida and now includes 30 Hyatt Hotels in nine states. Ficca will present “Effective Public/Private Partnerships are Like a Good Marriage” at the conference. The conference will close with a 4:30 p.m. presentation of “Handicap This! Stage Show,” an entertaining and inspirational presentation that seeks to dispel misunderstandings about cerebral palsy and other disabilities and underscores the possibilities people possess to overcome obstacles. The performance features Mike Berkson, founding member of Handicap This!, inspirational leader of the Keep On Keeping On Foundation, and aspiring film-maker and novelist, who was born with cerebral palsy. “Fear not. I may have problems. But I have no complaints,” Berkson said on the Keep on Keeping On Website. “I find ways to cope. I never dwell on my limitations. Instead, I ponder unlimited possibilities.” Also featured in “Handicap This! Stage Show” is Tim Wambach, founding member and production manager of Handicap This! and president of the Keep On Keeping On Foundation. He is the author of “How We Roll,” a book describing his relationship with Berkson. In August of 2005, Wambach ran 717 miles between Orlando, Fla., and Chicago, Ill., to raise awareness for cerebral palsy. In addition to the acclaimed keynote speakers, the 2013 conference features sessions led by state and nationally recognized leaders, including remarks by U.S. Senator Robert Casey Jr. The sessions provide information on interagency collaboration in research and practice, the risk of addition for persons with disabilities, and incorporating alternative microfinancing and financial education to obtain assistive technology, among other topics. Continuing-education units are available for certification and licensure in the counseling, social work, marriage and family therapy, education, human resources and allied health professions. Registration is required to attend the conference, however, the 4:30 p.m. of Handicap This! is free and public. Honorary chairpersons are Edward R. Leahy, ’68, H’01, and Patricia Leahy, interim executive director of the National Rehabilitation Association. Additional information about the conference can be found at scranton.edu/disabilityconference, or by emailing the conference co-chairs Rebecca Spirito Dalgin, Ph.D., associate professor of counseling and human services, (rebecca.dalgin@scranton.edu), faculty specialist, education, or Lori Bruch, Ed.D, (lori.bruch@scranton.edu), associate professor of counseling and human services.

NEW YORK TIMES CROSSWORD PUZZLE

HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Some people create with their hands, others with their bodies, voices and ideas. There are also those who create by building a rich inner life. Their character is their art. You’ll fall into that category today. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You already realize that trying to keep track of what you did and what the other person did and who did more or less of what will only cheapen the value of your relationship. And yet, the score is uneven. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When your body isn’t looking, your mind flees to a fantasy world from an earlier time. As lovely as this adventure may be, your drive to escape is a sign that your current surroundings aren’t optimal. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Sticking rigidly to your principles might serve you well on some days, and on other days (like today), it could lose you friends and supporters. But don’t worry. You can soften your message without softening your view. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Instead of forcing your views, make room for people to form their own. Don’t bother to explain yourself. When you do the right thing, the ones who did wrong will understand what they did. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You do all you can, and that’s all you can do. Luck plays a part after that. She’ll start by striking up a conversation with you. Listen to what she tells you. Luck likes a good listener. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re not afraid to say anything that needs to be said, and yet you are mindful of other people’s feelings. You’ll thoughtfully decide on the right approach. You have a gift for perfect timing and wording. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll find that you’ve hit the point where socializing has become tedious, especially because the same people are always involved. Break into a new circle to get fresh energy flowing through your personal life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). What if you found out that the person you want to be is actually who you are now? Would it make you do less or more? Assume that you’re already “there,” and act accordingly. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your best teachers, for better or worse, are those who are close to you. Both your neighbors and your enemies are worthy of your utmost consideration. By the way, they are probably one and the same person. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re ever aware that the way people talk communicates more than the words they use. That’s why you’ll respond to the tone of your loved one’s mood and ignore the verbiage. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The fact is that trusting a person doesn’t make that person trustworthy, but it’s a start. You’re willing to take a risk and hope for the best. Your leap of faith will inspire a person to deliver. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 1). The observer in you gathers knowledge and collects beauty until the perfect moment to act. The pleasant floating feeling of September will be followed by a flurry of exciting business in October. November heals relationships, and there will be a move, too. January and June are the best months financially. Aquarius and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 9, 14, 8 and 50.

DEAR ABBY
ADVICE

Sister’s forgiven loan was never forgotten
Dear Abby: Twenty years ago, my oldest sister, “Olivia,” loaned me $3,000 at a time when I was struggling to make ends meet. I promised to repay the loan at the end of the year. The time came and I wrote her a check for the full amount, but she didn’t cash it. She said she didn’t need the money and the loan was forgiven. Fast-forward 20 years: While Olivia has remained financially stable, I am now in a better place financially because of an inheritance. After learning about this inheritance, Olivia asked me for the money back! Because I can afford it, I plan on repaying her, but I can’t get over her surprising request. Do you have any words of wisdom to help me make sense of this? — Unsettled Sibling Dear Unsettled: Your sister may have forgiven the loan all those years ago because she thought repaying her would have caused you financial stress. Now that she knows you’re well able to give her the money, she would like to have it. You and I don’t know why she’s asking for it, but trust me, there is ALWAYS a reason. Dear Abby: I have been talking to “Ricky” for about two months. I’m 28 and he is 27. A couple of weeks ago we decided to date exclusively. This morning, Ricky found out that his ex is three months’ pregnant with his child. I knew he was last intimate with her three months ago, but we were both kind of shocked. I don’t have kids and I prefer not to date men who do, let alone one who has a baby on the way. However, I do care about Ricky and could definitely see us together. After this bombshell, I’m not sure what I want to do. Any advice would be appreciated. — Thrown For a Loop in Philadelphia Dear Thrown For A Loop: After this bombshell, the person who has some serious decisions to make is Ricky. Will this cause him to reunite with his ex-girlfriend? Is the baby really his child? If so, what will be his responsibility financially and morally? If he stays with you, do you WANT to help raise another woman’s child? Until you have a better idea of what lies ahead, my advice is to do nothing, You have known Ricky for only two months, and while you could see a future for the two of you, can you also see one that includes the three — or FOUR — of you? I’m including the ex in the equation, because she’ll be a part of it. Forever. Dear Abby: I quit drinking three years ago. I realized I had a problem, addressed it, and I’m now sober. I never was a big drinker socially. I drank alone. When I go out with friends for dinner, they usually rack up a large liquor bill, which is evenly split. Occasionally, I’ll ask that the liquor portion of the bill be subtracted from my tab, but doing so makes me feel awkward. I enjoy going out with these people, but I don’t want to add another 20 to 25 percent to my tab. What’s your advice for addressing this situation? — Sober in the South Dear Sober: Congratulations on your sobriety. A way to avoid being charged for the liquor your friends consume would be to quietly advise the server at the start of the dinner that you would like a separate check.

No roughing it: Glamping on Idaho’s Salmon River
WILLIAM KRONHOLM
Associated Press

SUN VALLEY, Idaho — Stuffed morel mushrooms and braised free-range chicken with fennel puree and blackberry compote. Served on linen tablecloths with a carefully matched wine. Pineapple upsidedown cake for dessert. This is wilderness camping? It was a delightful shock for my wife and me as we took our seats at the table streamside on the Middle Fork of Idaho’s Salmon River, known in folklore as the River of No Return. Both of us are experienced wilderness campers, but we’ve sometimes defined camp luxury as dry socks. Not on this trip. Our host for the six-day rafting expedition was a family-owned company based in Sun Valley called Far and Away Adventures. It has carved a unique niche in the crowded field of whitewater guides on the Middle Fork, one of America’s great wilderness rivers.

A rafting and ‘glamping’ — glamour camping — expedition on the Middle Fork of Idaho’s Salmon River, also known as the River of No Return, lets participants go whitewater rafting and sleep in tents, but they also dine on elegant meals served on linen tablecloths with wine, and yoga sessions and massages are provided.

AP photo

They call it “glamping”— glamour camping — and it attempts to re-create the type of experience Ernest Hemingway might have had on a classic African safari.

In other words: No roughing it. No wedging into a tiny backpacking tent for the night. Each couple has a stand-up six-person tent

with cot, mattress and pillow, a lantern on the night table and a rug on the floor. No crawling bleary-eyed from your sleeping bag, hoping someone has hot water for instant coffee. Instead, a guide delivers fresh-brewed coffee to your door with your wakeup call, along with a steaming hot wet washcloth to wipe away the sleep. Need a good stretch to get going in the morning? Join the yoga session after breakfast. Shoulders sore after a hard day of whitewater paddling? The masseuse awaits you at her streamside massage table. Want a hot shower? Just ask; it will be arranged. And the food? Fourcourse gourmet dinners every night, with organic ingredients and a chef’s eye for presentation. Gourmet breakfasts as well. And a hot lunch on the river, unique among rafting companies that usually offer cold cuts. All of this, of course, is only a complement to the

central purpose of the trip — running whitewater rapids on one of the wildest, longest and most remote stretches of river in the United States. The Middle Fork of the Salmon is one of the eight original rivers protected by Congress in 1968 in the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. It runs 100 miles (160 kilometers) through the wilderness of central Idaho, flowing between towering cliffs and forested mountains. Over that 100 miles (160 kilometers), it drops more than 3,000 feet (915 meters), a steeper gradient than the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. It has more than 300 rapids, mostly class III and IV (“difficult” to “very difficult”). Shooting the rapids from top to bottom takes six days. Camping is on sandy beaches or in groves of ponderosa pine. Campsites are assigned by the U.S. Forest Service before departure, so rafters don’t have to worry about sharing a site or not finding a vacant one. They

Campers drink wine on a ‘glamping’ expedition on the Middle Fork of Idaho’s Salmon River. With Far and Away Adventures, meals are gourmet, hot showers are readily available, and no detail is overlooked.

can concentrate on the water. And in the prow of a raft, the water is awesome. We plunged through long wave trains of 3- and 4-foot (1-meter) standing waves. We shot through rapids with 8-foot (2.4-meter) drops and standing waves of 6 feet (2 meters) or more that slap you in the face with icy water. We skirted giant whirlpools that stand ready to suck down the unlucky or unskilled boatman. In the short stretches between rapids, wild cutthroat trout lurked in deep turquoise pools. I cast my fly rod from the rear of the raft, and those in the rafts behind cheered as scrappy trout hit the fly. I was on the raft of Steve Lentz, co-owner of Far and Away with his wife, Annie. He has been running this river for more than 30 years, and he knows by heart the most thrilling yet safest line to row through each of the Middle Fork rapids. Still, getting wet is half the fun; we whooped with joy with each icy splash — including the 82-year-old who shared my perch in the front of Steve’s raft. Like most Middle Fork outfitters, Far and Away offers a variety of trips to its clients. There are oar rafts, where a guide sits in the middle and rows through the rapids while the client sits in front and enjoys the thrill. There are paddle rafts, where kneeling clients on each side paddle as a guide in back shouts

instructions and steers; my wife, Joyce, quickly became a paddle raft addict. And there are “duckies,” solo inflatable kayaks that the intrepid can take through some of the easier rapids on their own. Guides make certain that a ducky client does not get over his head — both figuratively and literally. The final 20 miles (32 kilometers) of the Middle Fork flow through the aptly named Impassable Canyon, between sheer granite cliffs. Not even trails penetrate the canyon here, and the only way out is through the whitewater. Then it’s into the mainstem Salmon River and short float to takeout, where a bus will carry us back to our starting point at Sun Valley. Dry socks will never seem like luxury again.

IF YOU GO
SALMON RIVER TRIPS: The river’s Middle Fork runs 100 miles (160 kilometers) through central Idaho. Several outfitters offer trips with varying levels of service. Far and Away Adventures, http:// www.far-away.com or 800-232-8588, offers a six-day luxury trip, $2,450 per person, beginning and ending in Sun Valley. Trips vary by season: Late May and June, when the river is high with snowmelt, the trip is fastest and most thrilling. As the river drops in July and August, the river slows, but newly exposed boulders can make some rapids even more challenging. The best fishing can be in September. Trips are offered through September.

Lions overcome mistakes to win

Careful, now. That’s what Eugene Lewis remembered thinking as he pulled back on his first college touchdown celebration. “You want to get excited when you get in,” Lewis said. “But you’ve got to do the right things in the end zone and make sure you don’t get a penalty.” So his end zone antics consisted of a simple semi-spike. After all, he didn’t need a flashy flurry. It turned out he’d already delivered the knockout punch. The former Wyoming Valley West High School star pulled in a 54-yard touchdown pass for what turned out to be the winning points Saturday in the fourth quarter of Penn State’s seasonopening 23-17 victory over Syracuse at MetLife Stadium. Talk about starting with a splash. “I’ve been waiting for this for a long time,” Lewis said. For a whole year. A dynamic, big-play offensive machine since his sophomore season at Wyoming Valley West — where Lewis lit up the scoreboard with long touchdowns as a wide receiver, quarterback, punt returner and kick returner — he was forced to spend his freshman year taking a redshirt and starring on Penn State’s scout team in 2012. When his first official college season opened Saturday, Lewis was in

Penn State’s starting lineup as a wide receiver. “That was something coach (Bill) O’Brien let me know before the game,” Lewis said. “You just want to go out there and show everybody what you can do.” Nobody in the Wyoming Valley Conference needed convincing, after Lewis accounted for 68 touchdowns — 46 rushing and 22 passing while playing quarterback during his final two seasons at Valley West. Neither did O’Brien, who took special delight in watching Lewis snag the first touchdown of his Penn State career. “He’s a great kid,” O’Brien said. “He practices every day, he’s durable. He’s a guy who always has a smile on his face. He and I go back and forth in practice, busting chops. He likes a certain type of music, I like a certain type of music. We’re look-

For the 2013 Nittany Lions, it added up to a win. Somehow. Christian Hackenberg starred in his first game for Penn State, Eugene Lewis scored the winn i n g Penn State touchd o w n and the L i o n s Syracuse defense held off a late Syracuse rally for a 23-17 win in the opener at MetLife Stadium. The Lions overcame two interceptions, two lost fumbles, playing the first half without wideout Allen Robinson for disciplinary reasons and playing the entire second without injured linebacker Mike Hull. Hackenberg, the hyped true freshman, didn’t disappoint, throwing for 278 yards and two touchdowns to offset a pair of interceptions. The second score

Quarterback McGloin makes Raiders’ roster
The Times Leader staff

Matt McGloin has made it. He has gone from unheralded walk-on to record-setting quarterback to undrafted free agent to NFL player. The former Penn State quarterback learned Saturday that his improbable career will conAP photo tinue as a member of the Oakland Raiders. “Honored to be an official member of the Oakland Raiders quarterback Matt McGloin (14) calls to his team at the line of scrimmage in the second half Thursday Oakland Raiders……………I may walk slowly, against the Seattle Seahawks in Seattle. but I never walk backward,” McGloin tweeted Saturday afternoon.

McGloin was a walk-on quarterback at Penn State who flourished last season under coach Bill O’Brien. He led the Nittany Lions to an 8-4 record last year, setting several Nittany Lion single season records. Despite the strong showing, he was not invited to the NFL Combine and was not selected in April’s draft. He eventually signed a three-year contract with the Oakland Raiders after tryouts with Washington and Carolina. Once in camp with the Raiders, McGloin quickly impressed coaches and moved ahead

of fourth-round draft choice Tyler Wilson on the depth chart. He was Oakland’s most consistent quarterback during the preseason. McGloin wasn’t the only member of Penn State’s recent senior class to receive good news on Saturday. Linebacker Michael Mauti, who fell to the seventh round in the draft after injuring his knee in the next to last game of the season, made the Minnesota Vikings’ 53-man roster. Mauti will join his Penn State teammate Gerald Hodges, a fourth-round pick, on the Vikings’ roster.

The victory by the Fighting Irish (1-0) was the 200th career win for coach Brian Kelly, improving his overall record to 200-68-2 and at Notre Dame to 29-11. The Owls (0-1), picked to finish ninth in the 10-team American Athletic Conference, fell to 2-76 all-time against ranked opponents. Rees was 16-of-23 passing for 346 yards, registering his fourth career 300-yard passing day as the Irish improved to 11-0 under Kelly in games when they have no turnovers. Although Temple was heavy underdogs, it was still a bit of disappointing start for first-year Temple coach Matt Rhule, a former assistant coach for the Owls who last season was an assistant offensive line coach

Scranton’s Mark Burton trailed with a time of 1:26:15. “After the 10K runners merged off, I was by myself for a while,” Omurwa said. “The guy on the bicycle was riding with me.

Irish
From page 1C TJ Jones had six catches for 138 yards and Notre Dame had 543 yards total offense, with Amir Carlisle running for 68 yards on seven carries. One of the questions about Rees was whether he could beat opponents deep, with even offensive coordinator Chuck Martin saying he probably wouldn’t respect Rees’ arm strength if he were going against him. But Rees threw the pair of long TD passes to Daniels, who didn’t have a touchdown catch last season. Daniels beat Temple cornerback Anthony Robey on both TDs. The first drive started with Carlisle breaking a 45-yard run up the left sideline to the Temple 37, while the second was set up by a short pass to Jones, who broke two tackles, for a 51-yard gain. The Irish drove to midfield on their next possession, but the drive stalled. That’s when Temple began showing signs of life after Notre Dame safety Bennett Jackson was called for pass interference.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly has signed a new five-year contract, saying it signifies that he and school officials agree that they are “all in it together.” Athletic director Jack Swarbrick said the school would not provide any details of the contract, but said he was excited that Kelly would continue to lead the football program. Swarbrick said Kelly has “fundamentally changed” and restored the Notre Dame program. Kelly had said four weeks ago that a new deal was “imminent.” Swarbrick had announced in January after Kelly led the Irish to a 12-0 record and the national championship game against Alabama that the school was working on a contract extension. Kelly interviewed for the Philadelphia Eagles job the day after the BCS game in January.

Texas A&M offense clicks with and without Manziel
Texas A&M’s offense was practically unstoppable, with and without Johnny Manziel. That Aggies defense needed all the help it could get against Rice. Johnny Football packed three touchdown passes into less than a half of work for the seveth-ranked Aggies, who beat Rice 52-31 in College Station, Texas, on Saturday. Manziel was held out of the first half because of what the school said was an “inadvertent” violation of NCAA rules involving signing autographs. The sophomore had been investigated for allegedly accepting money for autographs from memorabilia brokers, a violation of NCAA rules that could have led to a much longer suspension. He came in on Texas A&M’s first offensive play of the second half. His first play was a 12-yard run, and the Aggies capped his first drive with a 44-yard field goal. His first touchdown came on a 23-yard pass to Mike Evans on A&M’s second drive of the half. Shortly before that, he got into it with a Rice defender, appearing to mimic signing an autograph while getting up from a tackle. He ended his day by getting yanked following an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for pointing at the scoreboard after a TD pass in the fourth quarter. He was replaced by Matt Joeckel on A&M’s last drive. Joeckel started at quarterback for A&M and threw for 190 yards and a touchdown to help the Aggies to a 28-21 lead at halftime. Manziel was one of more than a half dozen players serving suspensions Saturday.
No. 3 Oregon 66, Nicholls 3 Eastern Washington 49, No. 25 Oregon State 46

EUGENE, Ore. — Marcus Mariota threw a touchdown pass and ran for two additional scores and the Oregon Ducks made easy work of lowertier Nicholls. Mariota, who set an Oregon record with 38 touchdowns last season as a redshirt freshman, completed 12 of 21 passes for 234 yards before sitting after the third quarter when the Ducks had built a 45-3 lead. Mariota also ran for 113 yards for his second career game with more than 100 yards rushing. De’Anthony Thomas ran for 128 yards and two more touchdowns for Oregon in the debut of new head coach Mark Helfrich. Helfrich, the team’s former offensive coordinator, was promoted when Chip Kelly left the Ducks in January for the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — After serving his first-half suspension, Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel threw three TD passes and scrambled for 19 yards — ran his mouth a bit, too — as Texas A&M posted a lopsided win over Rice. Manziel was sitting out because of what the school said was an “inadvertent” violation of NCAA rules involving signing autographs. His first touchdown came on a 23-yard pass to Mike Evans on A&M’s second drive of the half. Shortly before that, he got into it with a Rice

No. 10 Florida 24, Toledo 6

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Mack Brown had a career day, Jeff Driskel was efficient and Florida opened the season with a victory over Toledo. Brown ran 25 times for 112 yards and two touchdowns. Driskel completed 17 of 22 passes for 153 yards and a score. And Florida’s defense, which ranked fifth in the country in 2012, looked every bit as

ers and its coordinator. The Gators controlled both lines of scrimmage, opening holes for Brown and keeping steady pressure on Toledo’s experienced spread offense. It was exactly the style of play Florida has become known for under third-year coach Will Muschamp. No flashiness. Few highlightreel plays. But a win in the end. It was Florida’s 24th consecutive season-opening victory, the second-longest active streak in the country. Only Nebraska (27) has a longer current run.
No. 13 Oklahoma State 21, Mississippi State 3

HOUSTON — J.W. Walsh threw for 135 yards and ran for another 125 and a touchdown to

Mississippi State in the Texas Kickoff. Walsh finished 18 of 27 after relieving starter Clint Chelf on the Cowboys’ third series. Jeremy Smith rushed for 102 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries for Oklahoma State (1-0), which piled up 432 yards on offense after struggling for most of the first half. Tyler Russell 10 of 16 for 133 yards before being helped off the field and taken to the locker room in the third quarter after being brought down on a scramble. Dak Prescott replaced Russell, throwing for 89 yards on seven of 17 passing. LaDarius Perkins rushed for 50 yards on 16 carries and caught three passes for 52 yards for the Bulldogs (0-1).

NORMAN, Okla. — Trevor Knight rushed for 103 yards on 13 carries and threw three touchdown passes — two to Jalen Saunders - in his first start and No. 16 Oklahoma beat Louisiana-Monroe. Oklahoma gave coach Bob Stoops his 150th career win, putting him seven behind Barry Switzer on the Sooners’ career coaching wins list. Oklahoma is 5-0 under Stoops in August games and 14-1 in home openers, having lost only to Texas Christian in 2005. Knight became the first Oklahoma quarterback to rush for 100 or more yards in a game since Jason White had 117 yards rushing against Kansas on Oct. 13, 2001.

CORVALLIS, Ore. — Vernon Adams passed for 411 yards and ran for 107 and the go-ahead score with 18 seconds left as Eastern Washington upset Oregon State to become the third FCS team to beat a ranked FBS team. Adams overwhelmed the Beavers in a performance in sure to attract attention around the nation. He threw for four touchdowns and ran for two, completing 23 of 30 passes despite leaving the game twice — once with cramping and a second time after taking a hard hit near the sideline. Adams returned, though, and scored on a 2-yard run to put the Eagles up 49-46. It was the first time a team from the Football Championship Subdivision has defeated a ranked team from the Football Bowl Subdivision since James Madison beat Virginia Tech in September 2010.
Boston College 24, Villanova 14

BOSTON — Alex Amidon had 13 catches for 146 yards and a touchdown as Boston College recovered from a slow start to beat Villanova and win its first game under coach Steve Addazio. Andre Williams ran for 114 yards on 23 carries for the Eagles (1-0), who won just twice last season and fired coach Frank Spaziani.
Duquesne 35, Albany 24

PITTSBURGH — Dillon Buechel threw for 309 yards and two touchdowns in his college debut to lead Duquesne in a victory over Albany.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Urban Meyer is a perfectionist. His second-ranked Ohio State team was less than perfect. Braxton Miller threw two touchdown passes before fighting leg cramps and Jordan Hall ran for two more scores to lead the Buckeyes to a 40-20 victory over Buffalo on Saturday in the season opener for both teams. The Buckeyes, striving for a crisper start after a lethargic outing in Meyer’s debut in 2012, led 23-0 after the first quarter before the Bulls made things interesting. Joe Licata threw two TD passes and linebacker Kahlil Mack returned a Miller interception 45 yards to make it 30-20 in the third quarter. But after Miller was sidelined a second time with cramps, sub Kenny Guiton promptly tossed a 21-yard touchdown pass to Chris Fields and the Buckeyes were never threatened again. Licata completed 19 of 32 passes for 185 yards and two scores with one interception, with Branden Oliver gaining 73 yards on 26 carries for the Bulls, who were playing Ohio State for the first time. Ohio State was in control after its first three possessions. Miller, who was 15 of 22 passing for 178 yards and also ran for 77 yards on

17 attempts, hit Devin Smith on a 47-yard scoring pass on the fourth offensive play of the season. Then he found Fields on a 7-yard scoring pass. The Buckeyes, who had 10 new starters on defense to start the game, missed a punt block and roughed the punter, then failed on a Hall run on fourth and 1 near midfield. Meyer chewed out his offensive line when it returned to the bench. After Ron Tanner picked off a tipped Licata pass for Ohio State, speedy freshman tailback Dontre Wilson gave it right back on the next play when he was hit by linebacker Blake Bean and Buffalo’s Derek Brim recovered.

He ran for a 22-yard score midway through the first quarter when Michigan led by just four points and had a 4-yard TD on the ground late in the first half. White added 143 and Wisconsin’s revamped defense pitched a shutout of Massachusetts in coach Gary Andersen’s debut.

CINCINNATI — Munchie Legaux regained his job as the starting quarterback and had a solid showing on Saturday, throwing for a touchdown and running for another in Cincinnati’s victory over Purdue — the Boilermakers’ worst opening loss in 17 years. Legaux’s dual-threat performance highlighted a game featuring new coaches and a new league — Cincinnati (1-0) in the American Athletic Conference. The Bearcats were sharp their first time under Tommy Tuberville. Legaux was back at quarterback because incumbent Brendon Kay has been limited by a sore passing shoulder. He was 13 of 20 for 146 yards. Purdue (0-1) got a whole new offense under Darrell Hazell, and it didn’t work. The Boilermakers took their most lopsided defeat since a 52-14 loss at Michigan State in 1996.

Northern Illinois cornerback Jimmie Ward intercepted Iowa’s Jake Rudock with 1:17 left. He brought it to the Hawkeyes 30-yard line, setting up the gamewinning kick from Sims. Rudock threw for 256 yards, a touchdown and two picks in his debut for Iowa, which lost its seventh straight game dating back to last season.
Illinois 42, Southern Illinois 34

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Mathew Sims hit a 36-yard field goal with four seconds left and Northern Illinois rallied to beat Iowa in the season opener for both teams. Jordan Lynch threw for 275

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Nathan Scheelhaase threw for careerbest 416 yards and two touchdowns to lead Illinois to a win over Southern Illinois. But the Illini had to hang on late to beat the Football Championship Subdivision school. Trailing with 44 seconds to play and fourth down at the Illini 3-yard line, Saluki quarterback Kory Faulkner threw too high for leaping wideout Adam Fuehne. Illinois was up 42-24 with as little as 12 minutes left. The Illini offense was mostly Scheelhaase. He was 28 for 36 and his second-quarter touchdown passes to Jon Davis and Josh Ferguson built a 25-7 halftime lead. Ryan Lankford caught six passes for 115 yards.

Jones leads No. 1 Alabama past Va. Tech
touchdown pass late in the third quarter to blow it open against the Hokies (0-1), who largely shut down AJ McCarron and Alabama’s highly touted offense. The Tide had just 97 yards total offense at halftime but were up 28-10. McCarron & Co. contributed only one of those TDs, and that came when they worked with a short field after a wobbly Virginia Tech punt. Sunseri stymied a brief bit of momentum Virginia Tech had after Trey Edmunds broke off a 77-yard touchdown run, cutting Alabama’s early lead to 14-7. The Hokies held on defense, but Logan Thomas telegraphed a pass over the middle, Sunseri stepped in to make the pick and, without breaking stride, took it all the way to the end zone for a 38-yard touchdown. Virginia Tech’s last glimmer of hope faded after Cody Journell booted a 39-yard field goal late in the first half. On the ensuing kickoff, Jones appeared to be stopped short of his own 30. Then, suddenly, he burst out from a pack of would-be tacklers and was gone. The return left Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer — whose program was long known for its stellar special teams — waving his cap and shaking his head in disgust. Alabama finally put together an impressive offensive series late in the third quarter, capped by McCarron’s scoring pass to Jones. Still, the Tide managed just 206 yards on offense, far shy of its 445.5-yard average last season. McCarron was photographed arriving in Atlanta wearing a boot on his right foot, reportedly because of an ingrown toenail, and he looked a bit off after being the nation’s top-rated passer last season. There was an interception — he had only three all of last season — and also a penalty for intentional grounding. He finished 10-of-23 for 110 yards. T.J. Yeldon rushed for 75 yards on 17 carries, but the Tide finished with just 96 yards on the ground. While the Tide has no shortage of offensive skill players, the line lost three starters from last year’s championship team. Apparently, there’s still some work to do in the trenches, which coach Nick Saban will surely focus on over the next two weeks before Alabama heads to College Station to face the new Southeastern Conference rival that provided its lone loss of 2012 — Texas A&M and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. Jones’ performance masked the lackluster showing at the Georgia Dome, as he became the first Crimson Tide player since at least 1944 — that’s as far back as the Alabama record book goes — to score two touchdowns in a game on returns. And, for the first time since 1995, Alabama scored three non-offensive TDs in a game. Virginia Tech, looking to rebound from a 7-6 season that was its worst since 1992, also struggled on offense under new coordinator Scot Loeffler. Fifthyear senior quarterback Logan Thomas looked like a raw freshman, completing only 5-of-26 for 59 yards, thought his numbers would’ve been a bit better if not for several dropped passes. Take away Edmunds’ long run and the Hokies managed just 135 yards.

ATLANTA — Christion Jones became the first Alabama player since at least the 1940s to have two returns for touchdowns, Vinnie Sunseri brought back an interception for another TD, and the top-ranked Crimson Tide overcame a sluggish offensive performance to beat Virginia Tech 35-10 on Saturday. Jones scored on a 72-yard punt return less than 2 minutes into the game, then scooted loose on a kickoff for a 94-yard touchdown that led the Crimson Tide (1-0) to a win that could’ve been much tougher to start its quest for an unprecedented third straight national title. For good measure, the junior receiver also hauled in a 38-yard

Allmendinger back in Cup with full-time ride
AP Sports Writer

PAUL NEWBERRY

HAMPTON, Ga. — Less than 14 months after a devastating blow to his career, A.J. Allmendinger reclaimed a full-time ride in the Sprint Cup series. JTG Daugherty Racing announced Saturday that Allmendinger will take over

the No. 47 car from Bobby Labonte next season, capping his comeback from a positive drug test in July 2012 that resulted in a NASCAR suspension and losing his job with Roger Penske’s Sprint Cup team. “I didn’t deserve a second chance,” Allmendinger said during a news conference at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

“But I worked really hard to get there.” He went through a NASCAR-mandated treatment program and managed to land a handful of one-off Cup rides, in addition to getting a chance from Penske to drive in a few IndyCar events. Allmendinger competed in the Indianapolis 500, led 23 laps and finished

seventh — a performance he calls “probably the biggest moment of my career.” He also won two road races in the NASCAR Nationwide Series driving for Penske. Allmendinger landed with a one-car team that includes former NBA star Brad Daugherty among its owners, having persuaded his new employers that he’s

improved as a person since a positive test for the prescription drug Adderall. “It’s really not hit me what happened the last 13 or 14 months,” Allmendinger said. “More than anything, I wouldn’t change any of it. I feel so good about it now. It’s taken a lot of hard work to get where I want to be in this sport.”

With Labonte, the 2000 Cup champion, enduring a tough season, Allmendinger was tapped to drive the car at Kentucky and Watkins Glen. He’ll be behind the wheel again Sunday night at Atlanta Motor Speedway and continue to fill in as needed while Labonte recovers after breaking three ribs in a bike riding accident near

his North Carolina home. “Bobby’s pretty banged up right now,” said Tad Geschickter, another of the team’s owners. “He’s got another doctor’s appointment Monday. He may be a gametime decision (next weekend at Richmond), but Bobby Labonte’s burning passion is to drive the car and see this season through the end.”

Garcia grabs lead outside Boston
The Associated Press

NORTON, Mass. — Sergio Garcia opened with five birdies in seven holes, closed with an eagle, and wound up as the guy everyone was chasing Saturday at the Deutsche Bank Championship. By everyone, that means 28 players within six shots of his lead with 36 holes to play. And somehow, that includes Phil Mickelson. On another day of soft conditions and plenty of birdies on the TPC Boston, Garcia had a 7-under 64 during a cool, cloudy morning that stood up for the 36-hole lead when the long and wild afternoon was over. The Spaniard was at 13-under 129, one short of the tournament record. He had a one-shot lead over Roberto Castro and Henrik

Stenson. Tiger Woods, in the 1-2-3 grouping with Mickelson and Adam Scott that attracted a massive crowd standing three-deep in spots, made a 35-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for a 67 and was among those within six shots of the lead. Mickelson, however, managed to steal the show with a 71. And this was no ordinary 71. “I was playing terrible, and I shot even par,” Mickelson said. “I could easily have shot myself out of the tournament. I got it in the hazard I don’t know how many times. If I go on and play the way I believe I’m going to this weekend, I’m going to look back at those nine holes as the key to the entire tournament.” Lefty went on some kind of crazy ride, completely losing his swing during one stretch when he looked closer to hitting Rhode Island than hitting a fairway. He drove left into the hazard on No. 9, way right into the hazard on No. 10 and would have found another hazard on the par-3 11th except for hitting a tree. He hit into the gallery to the left on No. 12 and into the gallery to the right on No. 13. His tee shot on the par-3 16th came up short and into the water for double bogey. Mickelson closed with two birdies for a 71 and was five shots behind.

Penn State 0 6 7 10 — 23 Syracuse 0 3 7 7 — 17 SECOND QUARTER SU — Ross Krautman 32-yard field goal, 12:32. Drive: 8 plays, 28 yards, 3:20. Analysis: Bill O’Brien indeed gets an early look at both of his quarterbacks with Christian Hackenberg starting and going 6-for-7 on two drives. Tyler Ferguson gets in for the third drive but has the ball simply slip out of his hands for a fumble that Syracuse scoops up at the PSU 43. The Orange convert a long third down to get into field goal range but the Lions hold from there as Krautman scores the season’s first points. SYRACUSE 3, PENN STATE 0. PSU — Sam Ficken 36-yard field goal, 5:59. Drive: 9 plays, 30 yards, 2:53. Analysis: Penn State gets some life from special teams as a low snap skips back to Orange punter Jonathan Fisher. That gives defensive lineman Carl Nassib — brother of prolific former Syracuse quarterback Ryan — a shot at bringing him down for a loss of 17. Syracuse answers right back, however, as Hackenberg throws his first career interception. Stephen Obeng-Agyapong responds by causing a turnover of his own, ripping the ball away from the Orange at the end of a play. The Lions initially converted a fake field goal on a run by holder Ryan Keiser, but Syracuse holds from there to set up a real kick. SU 3, PSU 3. PSU — Ficken 35-yard field goal, 0:55. Drive: 9 plays, 41 yards, 4:00. Analysis: Penn State begins to assert itself as the half comes to an end, shutting down Syracuse’s work-in-progress offense and getting some traction in the trenches. Tailback Zach Zwinak starts grinding out yards as Hackenberg continues to subsist on a diet of designed screens and short passes. It’s enough to get the Lions back into field goal range, but Bill Belton trips over John Urschel’s foot on a third-down run and Ficken is called on again. The junior converts for his 12th straight make, dating back to last season. PSU 6, SU 3. THIRD QUARTER PSU — Allen Robinson 51-yard pass from Christian Hackenberg (Ficken kick), 11:46. Drive: 2 plays, 76 yards, 0:34. Analysis: It’s pretty simple. Allen Robinson is very, very good. The reigning Big Ten Receiver of the Year sat out the first half for disciplinary issues. On his first snap in the third quarter, Robinson lined up in the slot and took a screen pass 25 yards. On the next play, his man bit hard on a Hackenberg pump fake and Robinson came as wide open as he ever has been. The pass was underthrown, but Robinson still had plenty of time to scoop it up, accelerate to full speed and weave through the rest of the defense for the score. NFL talent on display. PSU 13, SU 3. SU — Jerome Smith 10-yard run (Krautman kick), 11:05. Drive: 2 plays, 65 yards, 0:41. Analysis: Not to be outdone, Syracuse immediately hits its first deep ball of the game on the next play from scrimmage. Safety Malcolm Willis can’t keep Jeremiah Kobena in front of him, and the wideout comes up with a 55-yard catch at the Penn State 10. Smith rumbles off left tackle on the very next play and a stunned Lions defense doesn’t lay a finger on him as he waltzes into the end zone. PSU 13, SU 10. FOURTH QUARTER PSU — Ficken 46-yard field goal, 14:16. Drive: 4 plays, 15 yards, 1:50. Analysis: The redemption of Ficken continues. Though he had that great streak to close out 2012, all of his field goals were under 40 yards. Bill O’Brien shows faith in the junior on this one and he responds with a career-best kick that gives the Lions a slight cushion and prevents the Orange from starting with good field position. PSU 16, SU 10. PSU — Eugene Lewis 54-yard pass from Hackenberg (Ficken kick), 11:39. Drive: 1 play, 54 yards, 0:08. Analysis: A year ago, Lewis may not have made this play. But the improved technique he gained from a redshirt season helped him deftly streak past a Syracuse safety and run under the bomb from Hackenberg, tracking it down at the goal line for an electrifying score. It’s the first Penn State touchdown by a Wyoming Valley Conference alum since fullback Paul Jefferson (GAR) caught an 8-yard score from Zack Mills on Nov. 9, 2002 against Virginia. PSU 23, SU 10. SU — Smith 1-yard run (Krautman kick), 6:58. Drive: 1 play, 1 yard, 0:03. Analysis: Syracuse’s defense gets the Orange right back in it. O’Brien has Hackenberg throwing on third-and-long with the Lions trying to kill clock, and the Orange confuse the freshman with a zone blitz. With pressure coming from the corners, defensive end Robert Welsh quietly drops back into coverage and Hackenberg never sees him as he tries to get rid of the ball. Welsh nabs the interception and jaunts down to the Lions 1, where Smith deposits it in the end zone on the next play. PSU 23, SU 17.

Obeng-Agyapong fires up Lions defense

NotEbooK

dlevarse@timesleader.com

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — On the TV broadcast, the graphic briefly flashed along the bottom of the screen in the fourth quarter. “STEPHEN OBENG-AGYAPONG 54 YARD TD RECEPTION” OK, so it was actually Eugene Lewis, who happens to share the No. 7 jersey for the Nittany Lions this season. But it was about the only thing Obeng-Agyapong didn’t accomplish in front of friends and family at MetLife Stadium. The senior safety was pressed into duty at outside linebacker when Mike Hull exited the game with an apparent knee injury in the first half. A veteran who looked to have lost his starting spot in the secondary instead came through with eight tackles, a sack, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and an interception in Penn State’s win over Syracuse on Saturday. “My best game ever,” ObengAgyapong beamed afterward. Not the least because he grew up just across the river from the stadium in the Bronx with many supporters in the stands. With the Lions dangerously thin at linebacker this season, the coaching staff asked Obeng-Agyapong to work a bit at linebacker in training camp, preferring to use the 5-foot-10, 205-pounder over an inexperienced group of natural linebackers. It was a contingency plan. And Penn State had to turn to it after Hull limped off the field early in the 2012 opener. Obeng-Agyapong’s performance was better than anyone could have expected. “He really stepped up for us,”

was quickly carted off the field and did not return. O’Brien said he did not have an update on Lehman or Hull after the game. Hull limped off the field in the first quarter after making a tackle and briefly went to the locker room with trainers. He eventually returned to the field with his right knee wrapped and played sparingly in the second quarter before calling it a day. He spent the second half on the sideline in street clothes. “It’s always tough when you lose a guy like Mike Hull,” Carson said. “He’s one of the hearts and souls of the defense. He’s just a guy that gets after it every time, so it’s tough. But you’ve got to keep rolling with the punches.” A handful of other players missed brief stretches of the game with minor injuries, including Kyle Carter, Nyeem Wartman, Donovan Smith and Jordan Lucas.

senior linebacker Glenn Carson said. “I mean, when a guy goes down, you’re looking for that guy to step in. That’s what depth is all about. “He’s a kid who works hard. It’s his senior year and it’s really great to see him excel on the field like that.” After a Penn State turnover in the second quarter, Obeng-Agyapong immediately answered for the Lions, ripping the ball free from Syracuse running back Jerome Smith and recovering it himself in the pile. In the third quarter, he took advantage of a poor throw by Orange quarterback Drew Allen for his first career interception. He polished off his day with the biggest hit of the day, coming untouched on a blitz to level Allen. “It was real special,” Obeng-

Agyapong said. “Especially to do that in front of people who came to the game that usually can’t see me. Felt really good.” “He’s a guy that’s just a real team guy,” Lions coach Bill O’Brien said. “It was a great homecoming for him.”
Infirmary report

Ferguson makes brief cameo

Hull’s injury was certainly a cause for alarm for the Lions, but it likely wasn’t the most serious issue for a Penn State player on the day. Senior tight end Matt Lehman appeared to suffer a serious knee injury in the first half. Lehman was untouched when he tried to make a cut at the top of his route only to have the knee buckle on him. Lehman crashed to the turf and immediately clutched at the knee. He

O’Brien told his quarterbacks before the game that Tyler Ferguson would get a shot with the first-team offense on the third series. Things started off well enough for the junior college transfer, who danced away from pressure to find Matt Zanellato for 18 yards. But on his next drop back, the ball simply slipped out of his hand on his windup and Syracuse recovered, turning the fumble into three points. It was the last time Ferguson saw the field. Christian Hackenberg played the rest of the way. “I’m sure he was (disappointed),” O’Brien said of Ferguson. “But at that point in the game, I just felt like it was best to go with Christian.”

Lions
From page 1C covered 54 yards to Lewis, the former Wyoming Valley West star, for what proved to be the game-winner. Both were playing in their first collegiate game. “Penn State, we can’t dip our toe in the water,” Lions coach Bill O’Brien said of allowing Hackenberg to throw in all situations. “We have to come out ready to go. We’ve got to take our shots. If we make a mistake, then we play complementary football and see if the defense can hold them there. “We have a lot of improvement to do on offense, but I think everybody can see that there’s talent there — young (guys) mixed with veterans. I just need to do a better job of coaching those guys on offense.” First the youth. Hackenberg was 21-for-32 and his 278 yards were the second most by a Penn State freshman quarterback, behind only Zack Mills, who threw for 280 as a redshirt freshman. Not bad for a guy who just arrived on campus in June and was suddenly playing in front of 60,000-plus in an NFL stadium. “It’s a big change,” Hackenberg said of his sudden rise into the spotlight as the starting quarterback. “The coaching staff has helped me get through this, the team has helped me get through this. I’m just really trying to immerse myself in the team and what the coaches are preaching everyday.” “He’s a very poised kid,” said O’Brien, who revealed that he decided on Hackenberg as his starter two weeks ago, though he never announced it publicly. “He’s got a fantastic demeanor. He’s got great parents and I think that’s one of the things that stood out to me in recruiting. “He’s only 18. He’s got a tremendous future, but we’re not ready to waltz him into the College Football Hall of Fame or the NFL Hall of Fame. We’re just saying he’s a talented guy.” He showed the good and the bad Saturday. His decisive touchdown to

Lewis was right on the money after Lewis had cleanly beaten the safety over the top. His first career score — a 51-yard connection to Robinson — was set up by a very good pump fake to get Robinson wide open, but the pass was underthrown. Robinson was open enough, though, to stop and haul it in before burning past everyone from a dead stop for the touchdown. Robinson’s mere presence on the field was enough to lift the offense. The junior was benched by O’Brien in the first half — “That’s between Allen and me,” O’Brien said — as the Lions subsisted mainly on a short

passing game filled with screens. They led just 6-3 at halftime. When he took the field in the third quarter, Robinson promptly racked up six catches for 116 yards and a score before the frame was over. “He’s a great player and he made a lot of big plays for us today, as well as Geno (Lewis),” Hackenberg said. Robinson’s score made it 13-3 and Lewis, who finished with two catches for 62 yards, extended the lead to 23-10 midway through the fourth. The Orange wouldn’t go away. O’Brien allowed Hackenberg to throw on third-and-long late in the fourth, and the Syracuse came up

with an interception to set up a touchdown that made it 23-17. Syracuse had two shots at driving for a tying touchdown in the final five minutes, but the Lions defense stiffened both times. Sophomore corner Trevor Williams closed it out when he picked off Drew Allen on an underthrown ball down the sideline. The pick came right in front of the Lions bench, and started the celebration to close out a hectic day. “Our team really came together and got a win,” senior linebacker Glenn Carson said. “Now we’re just looking to keep things rolling. We have a really special thing going.”

Lewis
From page 1C That future starts now, after Lewis ran a perfect post pattern and snared a beautiful throw from true freshman quarterback Christian Hackenberg for the Lions’ second touchdown of the season. “Lewis did a great job,” O’Brien said. “All Hackenberg had to do was throw it. Lewis did a nice job on that, (wideout) Allen Robinson drew some of the coverage, Christian made a nice throw and (running back) Zach Zwinak picked up a blitzer. Christian had the easiest part of that play.” It didn’t take Lewis long to make the college game look easy for him. He snagged a 7-yard catch on Penn State’s fifth play of the season, a sideline play that helped Lewis shake off some early butterflies. “It’s good,” Lewis said. “There’s always going to be nerves, first game. Getting that first pass calms you down a little, let’s you know you can do this.” He just knew the big, game-breaking play was coming. Robinson took away the Syracuse cornerback on outside while running down the sideline, and Lewis went straight inside for the deep post. “I knew my route was wide open,” Lewis said. “They changed their coverage. It was single coverage on the inside.” Lewis had one man to beat, and he did — gaining a step on Syracuse safety Jeremi Wilkes and then going high in the air to make the catch. “When ‘Hack’ threw the ball, I was sitting there waiting, (thinking) ‘Catch the ball, no matter what,’ ” the son of Rev. Eugene and Amy Lewis of Wilkes-Barre said. When he came down, Lewis was already falling across the goal line — but stretched the ball across the line with his long reach in an extra effort to ensure Penn State had a quick six and a 23-10 lead with 11:39 on the game clock. That gave Lewis two catches for 62 yards on the day, and he now owns Penn State’s longest scoring play of the young season. “I was making sure I was getting in the end zone,” Lewis said. As he did, the Lions were sure they added another big-play threat to their lineup. “To be honest, my goal was to come out here and do what the coaches tell me,” Lewis said. “Big plays for a receiver are always the focus, they always help your team win. I’m a competitor. I went out there, treated every opportunity like it’s my last.” Chances are, it’s just the first of many.

ROBERT MINER won the Boys Varsity 5K in 16:46, outrunning his teammate, sophomore sensation Dom Hockenbury, by 11 seconds. “Originally, I thought I’d go out conservative,” said DeLuca. “But once I saw the pace (early in the race), I realized I had to go — and set the pace.” “I wished he had (gone out conservative), said Hockenbury. “I tried to stay with him at the beginning but… I began closing on him near the end of the race but… There’s work to be done.

DALLAS — The highly anticipated match up of two of the top runners in the state — Tessa Barrett of Abington Heights and Regan Rome of Dallas — never happened in the Cliff Robbins Memorial Cross Country Races on Saturday at Letterkenny Fields. Rome never ran — due to a groin injury. So Barrett, a senior, scored an easy victory in the Girls Varsity 5K, finishing with a record time, 17 minutes and 26 seconds. She outran second-place finisher, Kaelyn Heineke, a senior from Council Rock North, by better than 2:30. “I missed having Regan to run against,” said Barrett. “She’s such a great competitor — she pushes me and makes me run faster.” It didn’t appear that Barrett needed anyone to push her Saturday. She actually shattered Rome’s course record of 19:07, set last year when Rome defeated Barrett by 35 seconds. But Barrett came on strong later in the season last year, defeating Rome in the 3200 meter run at districts and at states. While the battle between Barrett and Rome never developed, the battle of the two Doms from Dallas did. Dom DeLuca, a senior,

SCRANTON — The uniforms were the same, but it became evident Saturday afternoon this version of Wyoming Area football has a way to go to match last year’s championship team. Quite a way. Scranton Prep scored via offense, defense and special teams in routing the Warriors 35-7 at Scranton Memorial Stadium. The new-look Warriors weren’t expected to resemble the 2012 squad that won the WVC Division 2A-A and District 2 Class 2A championships. But the heavy losses to graduation were very apparent and could be tougher to overcome than foreseen. • The 28-point margin of defeat was the biggest Wyoming Area had suffered since losing 40-19 to Pittston Area to end the 2009 season. The Warriors finished 2-8 that year. • The Warriors’ offense never crossed midfield on its own. The team’s only score — a 3-yard run by Jeff Skursky with 8:03 remaining — came after Prep lost a fumble on its 13-yard

line. And after the 35-point mercy rule. • Three Wyoming Area quarterbacks were 2-of-8 for 12 yards and had two interceptions returned for touchdowns. • Wyoming Area special teams fumbled away a punt and had a punt blocked and recovered by Prep for a touchdown. And the returners had a few adventures fielding Prep kickoffs. “First game, we expect to deal with that,” Wyoming Area coach Randy Spencer said. “Especially with the inexperience we had coming in that I talked about in preseason. We have some athletic kids. We have to cut our teeth and get some on-field experience. Unfortunately, some of these lessons have to be learned the hard way.” And on top of all that, starting running back/ linebacker Marty Michaels suffered a right knee injury late in the second quarter. Wyoming Area did make a goal-line stand after Prep moved to the Warriors’ 1-yard line following the fumbled punt. But the second time Wyoming Area took possession trouble struck. Prep defensive back

Pat Timlin cut in front of a pass, returning it 27 yards for a touchdown on the first play of the second quarter. The Warriors went backward on their next drive and were forced to punt. Prep’s Cory Kopicki broke through the line to block the punt and teammate Justin Belardi recovered the ball in the end zone for a touchdown. After Prep’s offense scored twice, the defense found the end zone again on a 46-yard interception return by Kevin Sompel at 3:25 of the third. “There are a lot of things that have to go right in the passing game,” Spencer said. “Our focus is running the ball and in situations taking our shots with playaction game passing. Again, we have to work on it.”

NEW YORK — Ivan Nova threw a three-hitter for his first career shutout and Robinson Cano supplied the offense as the New York Yankees edged Baltimore 2-0 Saturday for their second straight win over the Orioles. Nova (8-4) outworked Scott Feldman in an efficient 104-pitch outing for his second complete game, helping the Yankees move past their division rival by a half-game in the AL wild-card chase. New York entered the final day of August trailing Tampa Bay by 4½ games. Baltimore trailed by four. The Yankees were looking for another big offensive day after beating Baltimore 8-5 on Friday night. But Alex Rodriguez was scratched due to flu-like symptoms and Feldman (4-4) shut New York down allowing a leadoff double to Brett Gardner and Cano’s RBI double in the first.

TORONTO — Brett Lawrie drove in the tiebreaking run with a basesloaded walk in the eighth inning, helping Toronto rally for the win. Toronto batted around while scoring three unearned runs in the eighth against four relievers. Kansas City shortstop Alcides Escobar helped the Blue Jays with a key error. The late rally made a winner of knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (11-12), who allowed two runs and seven hits in eight innings.

DETROIT — Omar Infante homered twice and drove in five runs to power Detroit to its third consecutive win. The Tigers stretched their lead in the AL Central to 8½ games over the second-place Indians despite playing without slugger Miguel Cabrera, who was sidelined by irritation of the abdominal area. The team says the reigning AL MVP is day to day. Infante hit a three-run homer in the second and a two-run shot in the sixth for Detroit, which has won seven in a row against Cleveland to improve to 15-3 against the Indians this year.
Red Sox 7, White Sox 2

HOUSTON — Joe Saunders pitched neatly into the sixth inning for his first win in a month, and Seattle earned its third consecutive victory. Kendrys Morales, Nick Franklin and Dustin Ackley each drove in a run for the Mariners, who had lost six in a row before the series against the major league-worst Astros. They will have Hisashi Iwakuma on the mound when they go for a series sweep. Saunders (11-13) yielded an unearned run and six hits over 5 1-3 innings in his first win since Aug. 4 at Baltimore. The left-hander was 0-3 with an 8.31 ERA in his previous four starts. Matt Dominguez and Brandon Barnes had two hits apiece for Houston (44-91), which appears to be headed for its third straight 100-loss season. Dallas Keuchel (5-8) gave up three runs — all in the first — and four hits in seven innings.
NATIONAL LEAGUE Cubs 4, Phillies 3

PITTSBURGH — A.J. Burnett scattered four hits over seven innings, Russell Martin hit a three-run homer and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the St. Louis Cardinals to regain sole possession of the NL Central lead. Neil Walker added three hits for the Pirates, who improved to 79-56 and moved within three victories of their first winning season since 1992. Burnett (7-9) gave up one run while striking out six and walking one. He received plenty of offensive help only hours after Pittsburgh acquired first baseman Justin Morneau from the Minnesota Twins.
Mets 11, Nationals 3

BOSTON — Jake Peavy pitched seven strong innings against his former team, Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits and the Red Sox won for the sixth time in seven games. Ellsbury also scored twice and drove in a run for the AL East leaders. David Ortiz, who snapped

CHICAGO — Starlin Castro hit a tiebreaking homer in the sixth to lead the Chicago Cubs to a victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. Cole Gillespie drove in two runs with a single and a sacrifice fly as the Cubs earned their fourth

WASHINGTON — Zack Wheeler pitched effectively into the seventh inning and the New York Mets piled up a seasonhigh 17 hits in routing the Washington Nationals. Eric Young Jr., Daniel Murphy, Josh Satin and Juan Lagares had three hits apiece for New York, which scored 11 runs for the second time in three days and won its third straight. The news wasn’t all good for the injury-riddled Mets, though. First baseman Ike Davis left with a strained muscle on his right side after hitting a sacrifice fly in the third.

The IronPigs (72-70) remained scoreless until the sixth inning when Freddy Galvis and Cesar Hernandez would both score to make it 3-2, but it wasn’t enough as the RailRiders would go on to win. The RailRiders travel to Rochester, N.Y. to take on the Red Wings (75-67) tonight at 6:05 p.m.

Pirates acquire Morneau from Twins
WILL GRAVES
AP Sports Writer

PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Pirates are all-in for the franchise’s pursuit of its first playoff appearance in 21 years. Pittsburgh traded for longtime Minnesota Twins first baseman Justin Morneau on Saturday, hoping the four-time All Star can give the Pirates’

middling offense a needed jolt heading into the final month of the season. The Twins obtained outfielder Alex Presley and either a player to be named or cash after Pittsburgh made its second major move in five days. Pittsburgh sent a pair of minor leaguers to the New York Mets on Tuesday in exchange for outfielder Marlon Byrd and catcher John Buck.

“We’ve got more depth, we’ve got more options than we had four days ago,” Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said. “We’re a better team. We’re a stronger team.” Pittsburgh entered Saturday tied with St. Louis atop the NL Central with 29 games remaining. The Pirates have been in contention all season thanks in large part to a

pitching staff currently second in the majors with a 3.17 ERA. Morneau’s presence should make an immediate impact on an offense that ranks 10th in the NL in runs. The 32-year-old Morneau hit .259 with 17 homers and 74 RBIs this season for Minnesota and is finishing off a redhot month in which he smacked nine home runs.

IOC inspectors to deliver clear message
AP Sports Writer

STEPHEN WADE

RIO DE JANEIRO — IOC inspectors are sure to deliver a clear message to organizers of the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics when they arrive for a two-day visit: end delays and speed up. For their part, Rio officials are expected to promise that preparations are on course after a late start. Privately, they’ll try to soothe concerns about a slowdown in landing local sponsorships, worries over hotel space and transportation and recent protests over big spending on major sports events. International Olympic

Committee inspectors, led by former hurdles champion Nawal El Moutawakel, will be at work Sunday and Monday. During the last visit six months ago, IOC executive director Gilbert Felli said: “We don’t have any yellow card to send to Rio.” Any such warning this time would be a reminder of the 2004 Olympics in Athens when then IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch issued his famous “yellow card” reprimand to Greek organizers. At least two members of the coordination commission — Richard Carrion and former Olympic goldmedal swimmer Alex Popov — have said things need to

move quicker. “There are games that are better prepared and games that give us a little more trouble,” Carrion said. These games are still three years away and sure to stay off the radar until Brazil hosts soccer’s World Cup next year, giving local organizers room to maneuver. This is a challenging moment for South America’s largest country, which is trying to organize two mega-events and is facing pushback from citizens who question spending so much on sports events, particularly in a country with vast inequality, high prices and a slowing economy. Brazil is spending about

$13.3 billion of largely public money on the World Cup. Olympic organizers are expected to announce their budgets in a few months, but public spending could be similar to that of the World Cup — or higher. Leo Gryner, chief operating officer of the Rio games, acknowledged in a recent interview with The Associated Press that organizers were six to eight months late in starting to build venues. Gryner said that $700 million in public money may be needed to balance the operating budget. This is the budget to run the games themselves and is expected to be as much as $4 billion when it’s announced. He

attributed any shortfall to inflation, the sluggish economy and a struggle to sell local sponsorships. Gryner said the capital budget — a mix of public and private money aimed at building supporting infrastructure for the Olympics — could be 35 percent above the $11.6 billion listed in the original bid. Sebastian Coe, who headed the 2012 London Olympics, is expected to be in Rio this year to brief officials about what to expect the next two years.

“I still instinctively believe Rio will be a really good games,” Coe said. “They will be different. There’s a different level of expectation. With every Olympics, they always get there. Some are probably a little bit harder. The IOC will privately tell you some of those journeys are a little bit tougher.” Gryner singled out accommodations as a top priority. “We will have as many rooms as we need,” he said. Soaring hotel prices are already a problem for the

World Cup. The Brazilian government and the justice ministry reportedly are looking into reports that some hotels are gouging and have raised rates by 500 percent. There are also doubts about Brazil’s airports. The facilities in Sao Paulo and Rio are rated among the hemisphere’s worst, which inspectors have surely noticed traveling through the country. Airports could also face problems accommodating a surge in private jets used by many visitors to the World Cup and Olympics.

Running into the night

Northwest running back Austin Mazonkey run through the Holy Redeemer line during the season opener for both teams Saturday night. A weather delay of more than an hour kept the teams off the field until after 11 p.m. Saturday. The delay was called with 9:56 remaining in the fourth quarter and Northwest leading Holy Redeemer 28-24. For a full recap of the game, see Monday’s Times Leader.

Manyways to enjoy deer hunt
I have eyes in the woods at all times. They monitor the area where I deer hunt and give me a good idea of what I may encounter on opening day. Trail cameras are a huge benefit to hunters, one that may replace another “tried and true” method that hunters commonly use to see what’s out there — spotlighting. As a scouting tool, trail cameras are rocketing in popularity and they have many advantages over spotlighting. Trail cameras allow an area to be Tom monitored 24/7. Venesky Spotlighting gives you a brief glimpse and can Outdoors only be used until 11 Columnist p.m. But the cameras, they’re always watching. Trail cameras are more versatile as well. While spotlighting is limited to open fields, trail cameras can be moved around, or multiple cameras can be set over a hunting area, to pinpoint deer activity. Another benefit with the cameras is not only can the location of deer activity be narrowed down, but also the time of day, or night. It’s an effective way to pattern deer behavior before the season starts. With a spotlight, you can see deer feeding in a field at night where you expect them to be, and that’s about it. The popularity of trail cameras is evident by the number of reader submissions I’ve received for each Sunday’s Caught on Camera feature. Each week, more images are emailed, and every single one is fascinating. One reader who operates several cameras told me when he downloads the memory card, it’s like Christmas morning just seeing what the cameras captured. Despite the effectiveness, and enjoyment afforded by trail cameras, spotlighting still has its benefits. With a spotlight, you have mobility. A drive around some country roads dotted with farm fields provides numerous spotlighting locations, and the chance to see a lot of deer. Cameras, obviously, are stationary and while they can be moved around are limited to a specific location. If nothing moves through that particular area for a few days, the camera sits idle. Spotlighting is also a great way to observe deer behavior firsthand. The beam from my spotlight has captured sparring bucks and playful fawns, providing a nighttime show that I always feel lucky to witness. And oddly enough, driving around dirt roads at night casting a light into fields is a great way to spend See DEER | 13C

John Oast uses a 13-foot kayak for most of his fishing on local lakes and the Susquehanna river. The kayak offers plenty of storage and allows Oast to access areas that other boats can’t reach.

A better bass boat?
John Oast loves to bass fish from a boat, but he goes about it differently. When Oast hits the Susquehanna River or a local pond, he needs to gasoline for a motor, no battery for a trolling motor and not even a trailer to haul his boat. Even better, Oast doesn’t even need a launch to get his craft onto the water. All he needs is a path and a paddle. Oast, who resides in Bloomsburg, does his bass fishing from a kayak. Oast took up fishing from a kayak several years ago when he lived in Virginia Beach and the lightweight crafts were popular with those who took part in surf fishing in the ocean. Now, Oast said, kayaks are starting to catch on here as more people realize the advantages they offer over fishing from a bass boat. The first benefit, Oast said, is simply getting to the water. “You can launch anywhere. Just drag it through the weeds and jump in,” he said. “You can launch in places that jet boats can’t get to and you can do it without any help.” Oast said there are kayaks designed specifically for fishing. The main difference, he said, is fishing kayaks allow the user to sit on top of the hull in a molded seat pan, which offers more stabil-

ity and also makes it easier to cast from the higher position. Oast’s kayak is 13 feet, while those that are 11 and 12 feet in length are primarily used on smaller water. A longer kayak, he said, is faster while the shorter versions turn easier. Fishing kayaks have plenty of storage thanks to a tank well — a place that can easily accommodate a milk crate — and several hatches for interior room. Oast stores extra fishing rods inside the hull and installed rod holders on the outside of his craft. The cost for a heavy duty fishing kayak is approximately $1,000, Oast said, but plenty of models are available in the $500 to $600 range. Most fishing kayaks weigh between 55 and 70 pounds, and can support at least 350 pounds. Oast believes the relatively

CaughT ON CaMEra
Since this feature kicked off last October, readers have sent in pictures of mammals, birds and even bugs. About the only thing we haven’t featured are reptiles. Until now. With summer winding down, now is the perfect time to run a few snake photos sent in by readers. Each set of images are perfect examples of how voracious a snake’s appetite is. The photos of the Eastern milk snake were sent in by Bob Stiff. He shot them in Jackson Township in the summer of 2009, and they are amazing images of the milk snake attempting to swallow a garter snake of equal size. Note the unhinged jaw in the first photo and the vivid color pattern of the milk snake, evidence that it had recently shed its skin. Unfortunately, Stiff reports that both snakes perished during the ordeal as the garter snake was simply too big for the milk snake to consume. Eastern hognose snakes love to feast on frogs and toads, as does this one photographed by Leonard Reggie, who found the snake on his driveway in Kingston Township on July 13. The enormous toad simply looks too big for the hognose to swallow, and Reggie doesn’t know if the snake was successful. Considering the toad is at least three times the size of the snake’s head, it doesn’t seem possible. But the hognose is an expert at devouring a toad, so I wouldn’t bet against it. The nonvenomous hognose isn’t common and is a species of special concern in Pennsylvania. And while we’re on the subject of predators and prey, Dave Powell sent this photo of a praying mantis feasting on another insect. Notice how it uses the spines on its front legs to hold the insect with a vice-like grip. Powell came upon the mantis eating its meal in his Plains Township backyard last summer.
Capture anything interesting on your handheld or trail camera? A nice buck, bear, coyote or anything unique? We’d love to see it. Each week,we’ll run photos from a reader’s trail camera on the Sunday Outdoors page. Email your photo, along with date and area it was taken (township is fine), and any other details to tvenesky@timesleader.com.

boat
From page 12C “Purchasing a boat is a big expense, in addition to the gas and trailer,” he said. “A lot of shore fisherman always felt limited because there are so many areas in the water they can’t cast to. They may have always wanted a boat, but not the expense. A fishing kayak is a good solution.” Aside from being easy to transport and launch, Oast is quick to list other advantages with a fishing kayak. They’re virtually indestructible, he said, allowing an angler to slide to logs and between stumps to get to where the bass are. When the plastic does get nicked, Oast repairs it with a heat gun, a process he says is a lot easier than popping rivets out of an

The fact that a kayak can go virtually anywhere on the water also gives them an advantage on

local lakes during bass tournaments. “A lot of the lakes around here have a lot of lily pads. With a kayak you go go right over them and hit the holes that are way back in, while the powerboats are limited to the edges,” Oast said. Perhaps the biggest advantage with a kayak is they don’t produce any noise, or wake, so fish are less likely to be spooked. That goes for other wildlife as well. “It’s so quiet that no one knows you’re out there,” Oast said. “This summer I was fishing the river in Bloomsburg and I paddled to within 15 feet of an immature bald eagle. There’s no way I could’ve pulled that off John Oast with a nice bass he caught on the Susquehanna River.

Isner’s exit leaves one American man at Open

NEW YORK — Trying to extend his stay at the U.S. Open, John Isner smacked a return winner, then pointed his right index finger toward the Louis Armstrong Stadium stands and circled his arm overhead, riling up the fans. Two points later, sprinting so far he nearly reached the seats, Isner hit a forehand that closed a point, punched the air and then shook his fists, doing his best Jimmy Connors imitation. Minutes after that, Isner cupped his hand to his ear, basking in the chants of “U-S-A! U-S-A!” The highest-ranked American man finally heard the adulation he’d been hoping for a couple of days earlier, when he lamented that so many spectators cheered so vociferously for his French opponent.

year-old Jack Sock, was beaten 3-6, 7-6 (1), 6-1, 6-2 by No. 18 Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia. So the last man from the United States left is Tim Smyczek, a 25-yearold from Milwaukee who got into the main draw thanks to a wild-card invitation from the U.S. Tennis Association and plays 43rdranked Marcel Granollers of Spain in the third round Sunday. If Smyczek loses — a distinct possibility,

considering he’s ranked 109th and never before even made it past the second round at Grand Slam tournament — it will be the first time with zero U.S. men in the round of 16 at the country’s tennis championship, which was first played in 1881. A loss by Smyczek also would make 2013 the first season with no Americans in the second week of any of the four major tournaments. Even if Smyczek wins, it still would be only the second time there was just one American in the fourth round at the U.S. Open. The other? In 2009, when Isner was the lone one in the second week. All part of the recent decline of American men’s tennis. At Wimbledon this year, for example, no men from the United States even got to the third round. That hadn’t happened since 1912, when no Americans entered the tournament.

The Broncos held meetings and a walk-through Saturday after final cuts were made. They’ll practice Sunday, as will the Super Bowl champion Ravens, who are being forced to start the season on the road because baseball’s Orioles wouldn’t move their game in Baltimore that night. Among Denver’s cuts was veteran running back Lance Ball, paving the way for the injured C.J. Anderson of Cal to make the roster while the Broncos wait for him to recover from a sprained right MCL. That makes 10 straight seasons that an undrafted college free agent has made the Broncos’ opening day roster. Two teams have longer streaks: Indianapolis (15 years) and Kansas City (11). The Colts kept 27-year-old rookie linebacker Caesar Rayford, a veteran of the Arena and Canadian leagues, and QB Tyler Bray made the Chiefs’ roster. “It’s not an easy day because they all worked hard,” Broncos boss John

Elway said about the players who didn’t make it. “We just don’t have enough slots for everybody.” Every coach calls this the cruelest day of the year in pro football — even the Giants’ Tom Coughlin, whose birthday was Saturday. But Sunday might prove worse as some bottom-rung players who barely had the chance to celebrate making the team get discharged in favor of

waiver-wire pickups. Teams can also fill their eight-man practice squads Sunday. This could be it for Tebow. Tebow’s last play with the Patriots was a 9-yard touchdown toss Thursday night to rookie free agent Quentin Sims with six seconds left against the Giants. Now Tebow is out of work again and maybe out of chances.

Deer
From page 13C time with family and friends. The uncertainty of not knowing what’s in the next field until the beam from a spotlight illuminates the night provides a level of excitement. Sure, trail cameras may make spotlighting unnecessary when it comes to scouting for deer, but there is yet another method that trumps them both. Walking. Despite what technological aids are out there — cameras, lights, etc. — nothing beats simply lacing up a pair of boots and hitting the woods to scout for the fall deer seasons. While it’s one thing to see trail cameras overtake spotlighting in terms of popularity, it would be a shame to see them do the same to scouting for deer by actually walking. While the cameras are effective, they will never replace a simple walk in the woods to see what’s out there. A scouting trip through your favorite hunting area is the best way to determine travel patterns, bedding areas, rut activity and everything else deer are doing. And like trail cameras and spotlighting, walking yields some exciting finds. I always get a rush when I find an enormous buck rub in the area I hunt. Even better is an up close encounter with a monster buck. A walk in the woods has been, and always will be the best scouting technique. But that doesn’t mean I won’t have a few trail cameras keeping an eye on things as well.

lers, if visible brain or spinal cord tissue is present; cape, if visible brain or spinal cord tissue is present; upper canine teeth, if root structure or other soft tissue is present; any object or article containing visible brain or spinal cord tissue; unfinished taxidermy mounts; and brain-tanned hides. “This is the first time that we’ve entered the fall hunting seasons knowing that we have chronic wasting disease inside Pennsylvania,” Game Commission executive director Carl G. Roe said. “But that doesn’t mean we’ve given up the fight to slow the disease’s spread or make its impacts on our deer herd as minimal as possible. “High-risk parts are classified as such for a reason,” he said. “And while we wish Pennsylvanians luck in all of their out-of-state hunts, we also ask them to make sure they’re following the rules and bringing back home with them only the parts they’re allowed.” Hunters who are successful in those areas from which the importation of high-risk parts into Pennsylvania is banned are allowed to import meat from any deer, elk, moose, mule deer or caribou, so long as the backbone is not present. Successful hunters also are allowed to bring back cleaned skull plates with attached antlers, if no visible brain or spinal cord tissue is present; tanned hide or raw hide with no visible brain or spinal cord tissue present; capes, if no visible brain or spinal cord tissue is present; upper canine teeth, if no root structure or other soft tissue is present; and finished taxidermy mounts. Roe urged hunters heading to a state with a history of CWD to become familiar with that state’s wildlife regulations and guidelines for the transportation of harvested game animals. Pennsylvania detected its first case of chronic wasting disease last year in a captive deer kept at an Adams County facility, and another deer that had lived in the same pen later tested positive for the disease. Since that time, the disease was detected in three free-ranging deer harvested by hunters in Bedford and Blair counties during the 2012 firearms deer season. In response to those cases, the Game Commission has outlined two Disease Management Areas (DMAs) totaling about 1,500 square miles, and special rules regarding deer hunting, the feeding of wildlife and the transport of high-risk deer parts apply within those areas. Maps of the DMAs are available at the Game Commission’s website and are shown on pages 53 and 54 of the 201314 Pennsylvania Hunting and Trapping Digest, which is presented to each Pennsylvania license buyer. The exact rules deer hunters within those areas will need to follow are being finalized and will be announced soon by the Game Commission. However, those who live in a DMA and are successful in out-of-state hunts should know that – like other Pennsylvanians hunting out-of-state – they are permitted to bring low-risk deer parts back home with them. Roe said hunters who harvest a deer, elk or moose in a state or province where CWD is known to exist should follow instructions from that state’s wildlife agency on how and where to submit the appropriate samples to have their animal tested. If, after returning to Pennsylvania, a hunter is notified that his or her game tested positive for CWD, the hunter is encouraged to immediately contact the Game Commission region office that serves the county in which they reside for disposal recommendations and assistance.

Amazon shifted to snag CIA deal
Jay Greene
The Seattle Times (MCT)

wOrkPlaCE

Diversity dwindles in race to the top

It was a contract that Amazon.com’s business-technology group wasn’t supposed to get. The CIA, an organization whose data is among the most protected in the world, asked for bids last year on a contract to provide the agency Webbased tech infrastructure. Longtime government contractors, among them IBM, seemed likely winners. So when Amazon Web Services, or AWS, won the $600 million contract in January, IBM cried foul. Big Blue argued that the agency did not properly evaluate IBM’s bid, and the Government Accountability Office, which reviewed the contract, agreed in part. Now, Amazon is bidding again for the contract while also challenging in federal court the CIA’s ability to reopen the bidding. Both winning the contract and sparking IBM’s ire are coming-of-age moments for AWS. The division, which Amazon launched in 2006, rents data storage and computer-server time to corporations and agencies to run core business processes. AWS generates roughly $3 billion in annual revenue, according to analyst estimates, by offering services to businesses at a fraction of what it would cost if those businesses owned and ran their own computers. And it’s emerged as the leader in providing Web-based infrastructure technology to customers, a business that’s come to be known as cloud computing. According to a new report from research firm Gartner, AWS is “the overwhelming market share leader,” with more than five times the combined computational capacity of the next 14 rivals Gartner follows. But handling “mission-critical” operations and ultra-secure data isn’t where AWS initially made hay. Some competitors and even some corporate tech buyers still dismiss AWS as technology provided by an online bookseller, suggesting it’s not capable of handling the demands essential to running government agencies and companies in the business of managing sensitive data. So while there are examples of AWS running mission-critical operations, a contract from the CIA could put remaining questions to rest. That’s why the contract is so important to Amazon. If the nation’s top spy agency is willing to rely on AWS to secure its network, surely other customers can rely on its technology as well. “It’s a lighthouse win,” said James Staten, an analyst with Forrester Research. “It will say to other clients that this is safe.” IBM’s challenge is certainly about angling for the lucrative government contract. But it’s also about slowing AWS’s See AMAzON | 2D

For some returning veterans, police work is a natural choice
Gary Peterson
Contra Costa Times (MCT)

Unlike many veterans who leave military service with no idea where their next job is coming from, Star Cazador had it all figured out — what she would do, where she would do it, and how much she would like it. Taking a cue from fellow Marines who sought careers in law enforcement after discharge, Cazador applied to the Santa Clara County (Calif.) Sheriff’s Office. It seemed to her like a natural transition. “There is a huge comfort level,” said Cazador, who served in the Marines from 2005 to 2009 and is now a Santa Clara County sheriff’s deputy. “In the academy, my best friends were other prior military. We knew exactly how each other’s brains worked. We could just look at each other. We didn’t even have to communicate.” Although many veterans feel that law enforcement is a natural fit, some former soldiers resent being typecast. Others say the profession is the least suitable career choice for veterans who are still working out emotional issues from deployments. And some veterans consider a career in law enforcement because they consider it one of the few viable options in a challenging job market. The Bureau of Labor Statistics doesn’t keep precise statistics on the number of veterans employed in law enforcement, instead lumping together the classification with wardens, school crossing guards and other security jobs. But the agency reports the unemployment rate for post-Sept. 11, 2001, veterans was 7.7 percent in July, up from 7.2 percent in June. That’s 0.3 percent higher than the unemployment rate for the civilian labor force. Veterans face challenges that civilians do not. Some are unsure how to express to potential employers how skills learned in the military translate to the civilian job market. Some return with post-traumatic stress disorder or traumatic brain injury and wonder if those conditions will be a deal-breaker

if they reveal them when interviewing for a job. So the notion of taking military skills to a civilian agency that has a similar structure can be appealing. And that’s a two-way street. In the San Francisco Bay Area, for example, several job fairs for veterans have been held in the past few months. They all seem to feature multiple law enforcement agencies looking to hire. “The veterans we’re trying to reach out to, they have the set of skills, the discipline and the training where they would easily transition from the military to civilian law enforcement,” said San Francisco police Officer Gregory Pak, who manned an information table at a Hiring Our Heroes job fair in Walnut Creek, Calif., in April, and on the USS Hornet in Alameda, Calif., in August. “It’s a win-win.” For Yeffiry Disla, 38, who is preparing for civilian life after spending four years in the Marines and 15 years in the Army, it’s more like a

marriage of convenience. “(Working as) a cop would be my fallback if I can’t do something else,” said Disla, who has served three deployments of 10 months or longer to Iraq and Afghanistan, “simply because I was an infantryman and those are my skills. Anything you want to see in a soldier, you want to see in a policeman.” Others aren’t so sure the gun connection is a logical connection. Army veteran Mike Magpusao works for Project Hired, a San Jose, Calif.-based nonprofit that helps find employment for people with disabilities — including combat veterans. “I could see how somebody would think that would be an easy transition,” he said at a recent jobs fair in Concord, Calif. “It’s familiar. I work with guns, I know how to use them, why not get a job that uses the same equipment? But I’ve spoken with vets. And, myself, I think I’ve experienced enough of that, so I wouldn’t want to relive that type of experience.” And Magpusao said some veterans resent being typecast. “A lot of them get out, they’re intelligent, they use the G.I. Bill to get a degree,” he said. “It’s like, ‘I can do more than pull a trigger.’ “ Jason Deitch, an Army Ranger who served multiple deployments to Africa and the Middle East, has a concern beyond familiarity or pride. “I’m not saying there aren’t lots of vets out there who wouldn’t be extraordinarily good cops,” said Deitch, a tactical consultant to police forces when he first got out of the military and who now works as a veterans rights advocate in Contra Costa County, Calif. “(But) many people who have gone to combat for any amount of time have got some stuff that they need to work on.” Deitch said there is no logical link between the two professions, and he urges caution. “As a matter of fact, there are good reasons to seriously evaluate whether See VETERANS | 2D

People in the working world love to pat themselves on the back for a job well done, even if it turns out the job isn’t finished. It’s a part of the workplace mind-set — we see a problem, we address the problem, we say “hooray!” and we move on, often prematurely. That’s what has happened with diversity in America. There have been great strides in diversifying workplaces — the glossy corporate photographs show inspiring mixes of races and genders, leading some to conclude: We did it. We diversified our workforce. But then your eyes move up the corporate ladder, and the rich diversity fades into a lot of white men. According to the Alliance for Board Diversity, white men filled more than 70 percent of the seats on the boards of Fortune 500 companies between rex 2010 and 2012. And Huppke DiversityInc Best Contributing Practices in June talColumnist lied minority CEOs at Fortune 500 companies: six black, eight Asian, seven Latino and 21 female. “We’ve been talking about diversity for 50 years, yet the progress in the form of representation has not changed very much,” said Tyronne Stoudemire, senior diversity consultant at Mercer, a global human resource and financial services consulting firm. “We admit the issue, we talk about the issue, but the work that’s behind it — people aren’t willing to roll their sleeves up and really get involved. We’re unconsciously incompetent.” He gave a wonderful description of the problem. Imagine corporate America as a glass of white milk. You pour in chocolate syrup, but unless you mix it up, that syrup settles at the bottom and everything tastes the same. “You’ve got to mix it up,” he said. “Organizations are diverse, but the diversity stays at the bottom. You’re not promoting; you’re not advancing.” Frank Dobbin, a professor of sociology at Harvard University who has studied diversity programs extensively, agreed with Stoudemire’s assessment. “We interview a lot of HR managers and top managers at firms, and we ask them how they’re doing on diversity, and they say, ‘Oh, good, 40 percent of our staff is female or minority,’ ” Dobbin said. “Then we ask how promotion up the ranks is going, and they’ll almost uniformly say, ‘Terrible.’ “ Dobbin’s research has found that many diversity programs “don’t have any effect at all or backfire” at a cost of time and money. He highlighted two typical approaches. One is to teach managers about their own bias, an idea most people tend to resist and one that implies that managers are to blame for a lack of diversity. The other is to control managers by implementing strict rules regarding hiring and promotion. Dobbin said managers prefer to solve problems on their own rather than having to conform to specific guidelines. “It doesn’t work to blame managers See HUPPkE | 2D

Be careful,but honest in describing dismissal
Q: I’m having trouble explaining why I left my last job. For three years, I worked in a residential treatment facility for youthful offenders. Everything was fine until I was assigned to the third shift, which lasts from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. Adjusting to this schedule was extremely difficult. Because I could not sleep well during the day, I was always tired at work. I began falling asleep in the middle of my shift, which was obviously unacceptable. Since I was never able to break this pattern, they eventually let me go. Now, when I apply for a job, I’m not sure how to answer the “reason for leaving” question. If I put “terminated” on the application, I never get an interview. If I tell an interviewer I was fired, I never get called back. I want to be honest, but I also want to be hired. How should I handle this? A: Since you should never lie during a job search, you will need to be truthful without being selfdestructive. For example, when applications request “reason for leaving,” you might give an ambiguous answer like “shift difficulties.” This is a true statement which can later be explained during an interview. When talking with potential employers, focus on the physiological challenges of third-shift work. For example: “Although some people have no problem working at night, I could never seem to reverse my sleep patterns. Since I didn’t get enough sleep during the day, I kept dozing off during my shift. I was never able to adjust, so unfortunately I had to leave.” Of course, this explanation only works if you are applying for positions with regular daytime hours. But I assume there’s no question about that. Q: My new boss is driving me absolutely crazy. Even though “Ron” knows nothing about the work I do, he arbitrarily shortens my project schedules, then interrogates me about why I’m not working faster. When I try to explain, he ridicules me for goofing off. Ron’s expectations are like asking someone to have a baby in four months. I have been with this company for 12 years, and I’m good at my job. But now I’m wondering if I should quit before I get fired. A: Based on your description, this guy either has no management experience or is not very bright. But despite his shortcomings, you might as well make one more effort to educate him before throwing in the towel. In a calm, nondefensive manner, try to help Ron see that the two of you are actually on the same side. For example: “Ron, I understand that we need to accelerate the schedule, and I’m willing to do that. I just want to be sure that we allow enough time for quality checks. If customers start complaining about defective products, you and I will both be in trouble.” If Ron begins to listen, then perhaps there’s hope. But if he continues to act like an arrogant tyrant, you may want to start exploring other options.

From page 1D and tell them they’re biased or try to control them through bureaucratic rules,” he said. “That doesn’t make them happy, and in the end it’s not effective.” Stoudemire offered his timeline of how the business world has handled diversity. From 1964 to 1988, the focus was mainly on compliance with anti-discrimination laws. From 1989 to 1995, there was a shift to things such as tolerance and sensitivity training. That rarely led anywhere, he said: “I’ll tolerate you, but at the end of the day, I just want you to go away.” From 1996 to the present, more of a business case has been made for diversity. Companies have realized not only that diversity is the right thing to do from a fairness standpoint; it’s also good for business, because diversity of workers brings a diversity of ideas. But clearly, we’re still stumbling. Dobbin said his research has identified some of the more effective ways to promote diversity up the ranks. One of the best, he said, is the formation of a diversity task force. (The word “task force” can make any worker’s skin crawl, but hear him out.) “They work very well because they give the job to the managers,” Dobbin said. “If I’m the CEO and I say, ‘I need six department heads to form a diversity task force that will meet once a month for a year and I want to see some results,’ there will be results.” That challenge will lead to managers who better understand and appreciate diversity and will likely knock down some internal barriers in the process. Another effective program involves mentoring, Dobbin said. Pairing up senior executives with management aspirants of all races and genders works because the senior people will want their younger counterparts to succeed. And again, this breaks down barriers that exist not only between people of different races or genders, but also between people at different levels of the company. This is a tough issue, as evidenced by the fact that we haven’t figured it out. But it’s hugely important. Diverse workplaces are more productive, more innovative and better reflect the clients they serve. It’s something companies must keep pressing on, if not for pragmatic reasons then certainly as a matter of fairness. “People are looking for this big, enormous ‘aha’ moment,” Stoudemire said. “But it really is about treating people fairly, with dignity and respect, the basic things our mother and father taught us.” You’re bringing a diverse array of people to the tree with the treehouse. Why not show them the ladder up?

From page 1D puting that once was the domain of a handful of companies, including IBM, that sold, rather than rented, the hardware and software that demanding customers needed. IBM went out of its way to cite its track record as it reacted to Amazon’s suit, which seeks to block the rebidding of the contract. “Unlike Amazon, IBM has a long history of delivering successful transformational projects like this for the U.S. government,” IBM spokesman Clint Roswell said. “IBM has been delivering trusted and secure cloud services to business and government clients for many years and developed virtualization technologies, which have led to cloud computing.” To be clear, the contract is not exactly the type every customer will get from the company. AWS typically offers its Web-based services in what’s known as a “public cloud.” That’s jargon for services that run on computer servers Amazon owns, delivered securely over the Internet in much the same way that electricity or water is delivered to homes. But the CIA deal calls for Amazon to manage a private data center owned by the agency. There’s no way that the top spy agency would let that data flow over the Web in the same way AWS does for clients such as Airbnb, when it books rooms for vacationers, or Netflix, when it streams videos to customers. The CIA needs a level of security that goes well beyond what AWS typically provides. While neither the agency

The cLIenT LIsT
Among Amazon’s web services customers: • Airbnb: The property-renting marketplace runs most of its Web-based computing on AWS, ramping up its use as its business needs have necessitated. • Netflix: The video-streaming service, which competes with Amazon’s Prime Instant Video, uses AWS to quickly deploy thousands of servers and terabytes of storage as needed to meet volume. • Pinterest: The online bulletin board for people to share pictures, products, recipes and more runs its entire business on AWS. • NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory: The lab, which focuses on robotic exploration of the solar system, uses an AWS service to process high-resolution satellite images that provide guidance to its robots • Obama for America: The president’s re-election campaign team built nearly 200 applications using AWS, including the campaign website, donation processing, and data analytics to maximize fundraising. • Automobili Lamborghini: The luxury-sports carmaker rebuilt its website with AWS, using its self-service capability to quickly design and implement a new site’s architecture in less than a month. SOURCE: Amazon.com nor Amazon will discuss the specifics of the contract, public documents make it clear that AWS was willing to alter its approach to win this contract. The CIA would be the first AWS client to have the servers that handle its computing on its premises, rather than in buildings owned or leased by Amazon. It’s not an idle distinction. Amazon has pursued public-cloud computing with a near-religious zeal. Delivering generic computing building blocks that customers could snap together like Lego bricks and dismantle to meet their needs at any moment has been the key to the division’s growth. Putting any of its technology behind a so-called “private cloud” could undermine that message. To be clear, some of this is semantics. If Amazon is operating the cloud offering, it might not much matter where it is located. The agency’s request for proposals for the contract referred to the services needed as a “public cloud,” according to an Amazon court filing. But providing those services from a customer’s premises is something new for Amazon, a move it no doubt made to acknowledge business realities. There are plenty of organizations that either won’t or can’t have their computing done from servers run at Amazon facilities, for all sorts of regulatory and security reasons. It’s something the company has recognized. It began to move down this road when it launched something called FinQloud, which it developed for Nasdaq to meet with regu-

latory and security requirements, and GovCloud, an isolated operation that allows U.S. government agencies to use cloud computing while still meeting compliance requirements. For AWS, which wanted both the huge CIA contract and the validation of its services, shifting a bit on strategy was a no-brainer. And that shift may mean that AWS will consider privatecloud deals going forward. “It says if you’re willing to spend $600 million, Amazon is willing to play ball,” Gartner’s Lydia Leong said. “But a potential customer might be able to spend less and still get them to compete for a private-cloud contract.” The IBM challenge to the contract threatens to undermine AWS’ bid to take on traditional suppliers of technology to businesses. Without offering details, IBM contended that AWS’ winning the contract was based on “inaccu-

racies in the government’s assessment” of its proposal. The GAO agreed, which led to new bids that were due Aug. 16. While Amazon is participating in the rebidding, it argues in its July suit against the government to block the process that IBM’s claims were “untimely and meritless.” In that suit, made public last week, Amazon said IBM wouldn’t be able to provide the type of cloud computing the CIA wants. And Amazon said the GAO’s suggestion to reopen the bidding was “arbitrary and capricious” and violates federal contracting law. The stakes are particularly high for AWS. Just as winning the contract was a point of validation for a service, losing a contract it had once won could undermine the perception that its services are capable enough for the most demanding customers.

Veterans
From page 1D or not that is a good idea,” he said. “You’re going to continue to expose yourself to violence, tension, stress, anxiety. You come back and become a police officer, the potential for retraumatizing is very high.” There’s a screening process for that, said Jennifer Bice, a Santa Clara County sheriff’s deputy. “Part of the background process is the psychological testing,” Bice said. “(Veterans) have heard that it’s an automatic disqualifier, and it’s not. It’s a case-by-case basis. We’ve all experienced bad things in our lives and sometimes that happens to us personally without even going to war. So it really depends on the individual.” The International Association of Chiefs of Police was concerned enough about “transitional obstacles” veterans might face if they pursued a career in law enforcement that three years ago it published guidebooks for veterans and any agencies that might consider hiring them. But those concerns didn’t stop Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS), an office of the Department of Justice, from offering 220 cities $114.6 million in incentive grants to hire post-Sept. 11 veterans to fill 800 law enforcement positions. “The benefits that I could see veterans bringing to a police force would be great,” Deitch said. “You are not going to find better leaders. On the other hand, I care about individual people.”

RISING RATES Expectations are that there will be a steep decline in mortgage refinancing activity as interest rates climb. Mortgage rates have risen more than a full percentage point since May when Chairman Ben Bernanke first signaled that the Federal Reserve might reduce its bond purchases later this year. The purchases have helped keep long-term interest rates low. The Mortgage Bankers Association expects that total refinance volume will drop from $673 billion in the first half of this year to $294 billion in the second half, according to a recent report from Stern Agee.

BOND FLIGHT A rise in rates has led to losses for many bond mutual funds, and investors are continuing to pull their money. When interest rates rise, bond prices decline because investors can purchase newly issued bonds paying higher interest than those issued previously. That can lead to smaller investment returns or even losses for diversified bond fund shareholders, and for investors in individual bonds who don’t hold them until they mature.

THE JOB SEARCH The latest report on unemployment is due on Friday. Although unemployment remains elevated, the job search process continues to change. The online networking site, LinkedIn, has had a definite impact, according to a recent survey of executive search consultants by William Blair, the Chicago-based asset management firm. In its latest quarterly survey, a larger percentage of search firms reported that their clients were conducting more of their placement searches internally. The number reached 46 percent, up from 34 percent in the third-quarter of last year.

Mortgage rates ease
Average rates on fixed mortgages declined this past week but stayed close to their highest levels in two years. The rate on the 30-year loan was 4.51 percent. The spike in interest rates in recent months was cited as a concern for U.S. banks as regulators reported on the industry’s record-high $42.2 billion earnings in the second quarter.

Rich Feldstein is a partner at Nigro Karlin Segal & Feldstein, a business management firm with offices in Los Angeles and New York. It caters to rock stars, actors, athletes, executives and other wealthy individuals. He says that when you’re stitching together a financial plan, it helps to assume the worst. A lot of your clients are has-beens by the time they’re 30. So working with them must be different from working with regular Joes, right? I would say it’s a matter of helping them get their arms around reality. The ballplayers typically start being admired when they’re 11, 12, 14 years old, so they’re brought up in a false world of “I’m invulnerable” and “I’m the greatest.” But we have to assume the worst. And there are very few that go on to have productive careers as coaches or announcers. What do they do when they can’t play ball? It’s very difficult to make the transition. Even though many pro basketball players are college grads, they were never career focused. If they’re at all entrepreneurial, we try to introduce them to people that can actually run a business, but who need financing. We try to stay away from restaurants, though. The failure rate in restaurants is extraordinarily high. So how do you want them to think about money? This comes from one of my favorite investment advisers, Ric Kayne at Kayne Anderson in Los Angeles. There are basically two types of investments. There are cows, where you milk the cows every day and you sell the milk and put the money in your pocket. That’s like the interest on a bond or dividend on a stock. You want to have lots of cows. Now if you want to have a sliver of pigs, a pig is an investment that you have to continuously feed and love and take care of, and you hope that you’ll sell it at a price greater than what you have invested. Your first pig is typically owning a home. Do you find that celebrities are more susceptible to being scammed? I think they are approached regularly. But most of my clients are really good about saying, “Don’t discuss it with me, call my business manager.” I imagine the divorces get pretty dicey. Indeed. You also have celebrity goodwill — is your brand really worth something beyond your services? It could be your name, copyrights on the songs you’ve written, endorsement deals where you haven’t yet received the payment. We have a forensics department that would raise all these issues with the divorce counsel. Interviewed by Christina Rexrode. Answers edited for content and clarity.

The rise of mobile computing is hitting Intel. Customers are increasingly turning to smartphones and tablet computers instead of the PCs that run on Intel’s processors.

Ask the Fool
I’ve heard I should invest in stocks for the long term. But how long is that? — C.R., Pensacola, Fla. It’s good to shoot for at least several years, if not many years — as long as the company remains healthy and growing at a good clip, and as long as its stock price hasn’t gotten way ahead of itself. Many fortunes have been built by people who stayed invested in solid stocks for decades. Keep taxes in mind, too, because long-term capital gains are generally taxed at a lower rate than short-term ones — 15 percent for many of us, vs. our ordinary income tax rate for short-term gains. For Uncle Sam, long term is at least a year and a day. *** I’m considering investing in a company that seems to be doing everything right: Sales and earnings have been growing at double-digit rates and there’s no debt. And yet the stock keeps falling. Am I missing something really obvious? — E.D., Green Bay, Wis. Maybe. You need to look more closely. Even steep growth rates may be lower than previous levels. Check out expectations, too. If the company and/ or Wall Street analysts expect slower growth in the future, that can dampen enthusiasm for the stock, sending it down. Perhaps competitors are fast advancing on the company, or questions have been raised about its management or offerings. For investors, the company’s future matters more than its past. Then there’s the stock price itself. Since the company has been growing briskly, investors may have bid up the stock to lofty heights, well above its intrinsic value, and the price may now be settling back to more reasonable levels. Always look at a company’s big picture.

How Long Is Long?

Short-Term Matters
You probably know to sock away money for retirement. But as you think about the long run, don’t forget the short run. Without sufficient short-term savings, you may end up wiped out, or even in bankruptcy. In order to deal with financial emergencies (imagine a medical crisis or perhaps a job loss) and to pay for known upcoming expenses (such as vacations, new cars and weddings), you have two main choices: (1) Save up and earn interest, or (2) Borrow the money (often via a credit card) and pay interest (at a much higher rate). The better choice should be clear. So how much should you save? It depends. Generally, aim to have at least three to six months of living expenses in an emergency fund. If you work in a field where it’s easy to find work, three months’ worth may be enough. If you’re a typewriter repairman supporting five kids, three elderly parents and six large dogs, you may want to aim for

Q

A

a year’s worth of expenses. Beyond your emergency fund, any funds you’ll need within three to five years (or longer, to be more conservative) shouldn’t be in stocks. Stocks can be terrific over long periods, but in the short run, anything can happen — just remember the 2008 stock market swoon. You don’t want a stock market crash occurring just before you have to make a big college tuition payment. Short-term savings belong in instruments such as money market accounts, certificates of deposit (CDs), short- to mid-term government and corporate bonds, and bond mutual funds. Your return will vary, of course, but right now some money market accounts are paying close to 1 percent. CD rates depend on how long you’re willing to tie up your money and also offer meager interest rates these days, but our low interest rate environment won’t last forever. Corporate bonds tend to pay more than CDs or Treasury bonds, depending on the risk of the bond. Learn more about your short-term savings options at fool.com/savings and bankrate.com.

My Dumbest Investment

The Motley Fool Take

Execution Counts
One investment that looked like it would be my dumbest was in a company with promising technology that developed renewable and synthetic fuels. It could convert feedstock into synthetic diesel and jet fuel, for example. It was doing business with the military and seemed quite promising, but had trouble getting to full production capacity and producing on a large scale. Worst of all, it conducted a 1-for-10 reverse split of its stock in order to prop up its price and not get delisted by the Nasdaq Stock Market. The stock has rebounded lately, though, so my pain has eased. — L.S., Virginia Beach, Va. The Fool Responds: This is a good reminder that while a company might have a terrific technology, product or service, it might not be a great investment if it can’t win in the marketplace and deliver robust growth. This company was a penny stock for years and has been quite volatile. It’s smart to be wary of stocks trading for less than $5 per share and ones with more promise than profits. Your company has considered putting itself on the market. Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

Intel Inside … Your Portfolio?
Intel (Nasdaq: INTC) stock hasn’t exactly been on fire lately. Some think the stock should be sold, due to the company’s flagging revenue growth, its dependence on a weak PC market for much of its business and softness in prices for its wares. The company still has a lot going for it, though, and much to offer investors. For one thing, it has been spending heavily on research and development (we’re talking more than $10 billion annually) and building a bigger position in the fast-growing mobile device sphere and other arenas. For example, it has been partnering with others to develop offerings for the health care market, such as home-based health technologies and computing systems for hospitals. It’s even looking at the TV business, with its OnCue service offering viewing options over broadband Internet connections. Some think Intel has a chance of reviving the PC market with its new Haswell chip that boosts battery life considerably. Finally, consider the company’s dividend, which will pay you handsomely while you wait for business to pick up. It recently yielded 4.1 percent, and the company has been hiking its payout by more than 10 percent annually, on average. Intel is too big, too rich and too forward-thinking to be forgotten. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Intel and its newsletters have recommended it.)

Study raises question of who will care for aging baby boomers
mean that aging boomers will have fewer friends and family members to take care of them as they get into their 80s, according to a study by AARP. In other words, even though boomers may be supporting their own elderly parents, the chances of someone being there for them are numerically diminished. The ratio of potential caregivers to boomers needing care will sink from 7.2-to-1 in 2010 to 2.9-to-1 by 2050, according to the study. “In just 13 years, as the baby boomers age into their 80s, the decline in the caregiver support ratio will shift from a slow decline to a freefall,” according to the study. That will exacerbate the emotional and financial pressures weighing on families. “More than two-thirds of Americans believe they will be able to rely on their famiEARLY

AUSTELL, Ga. — Six Flags Over Georgia will soon break ground on what it describes as the largest expansion in the history of the theme park just west of Atlanta. Park officials on Thursday announced plans for Hurricane Harbor, a tropicallythemed water park. They say the water park will be in the area formerly occupied by the Southern Star Amphitheater. Officials say the water park will be free with park admission. Park officials say Hurricane Harbor will include an 800,000-gallon wave pool, a multi-slide tower, a children's area, and a single-slide tower combining two extreme slide thrills. Hurricane Harbor is set to open in late May 2014.

OUR OPINION: LABOR DAY

A day off to remember the value of days on
Wistful for summer or eager for school? Contemplating stowing the bicycle and waxing the skis? Putting away the white togs and bringing out the autumnal colors? Maybe you’re lighting the charcoal and popping a beer bottle top? Taking one last trip for a swim at a stat park? A farewell tour of the Jersey shore? Yes, it’s Labor Day, taken by many as the de facto finale to summer, the demarcation between childhood vacation and the return to school, the beginning of our annual transition from adventuring outdoors to cocooning inside. It is of course, none of those. The fall equinox, which most consider the true end of summer, is Sept. 22. Most local students returned to school last week. And there is ample opportunity to enjoy the outdoors year round. And while Labor Day may be most famous as a three-day weekend full of store-wide sales, it always behooves us to remember why it was established and what it is intended to commemorate. That would, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, take us back to Sept. 5, 1882, the first Labor Day holiday. Celebrated on a Tuesday, mind you. Established at first in New York City by the Central Labor Union. Proposed by … well, that’s up in the air. It was either Peter J. McGuire, general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners, who wanted a day to honor those “who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold,” a quote that suggests P.J. McGuire didn’t get out much or just didn’t like natural grandeur. Or it was Matthew Maguire, a machinist, who was a secretary of the Central Labor Union. The who may have been lost in history, but the why should not be lost in celebrations and demarcations. This is about workers. This is a tribute to those who toil daily in jobs profound and mundane, and who, in doing so, contribute to America’s wealth property, strength and, bluntly, very existence. This holiday is about our local and national industriousness. It is about the fundamental American principal of working to build individual worth while constructing community. Labor Day stands unique among national holidays because it celebrates the deep value of everyday effort. By all means, have a family outing, hit the shops and malls, make the most of this year’s last warm three-day weekend. You deserve it. But be sure to pause for a spell and remember exactly why so many have the day off: They worked for it.

Attack against Syria must be worth effort
Having leaked to the world, and thus to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a detailed briefing of the coming U.S. air attack on Syria — (1) the source (offshore warships and perhaps a bomber or two), (2) the weapon (cruise missiles), (3) the duration (two or three days), (4) the purpose (punishment, not “regime change”) — perhaps we should be publishing the exact time the bombs will fall, lest we disrupt dinner in Damascus. So much for the element of surprise. Into his third year of dithering, two years after declaring Assad had to go, one year after drawing — then eras- Charles ing — his own red line Krauthammer on chemical weapons, Contributing Barack Obama has Columnist been stirred to action. Or more accurately, shamed into action. Which is the worst possible reason. A president doesn’t commit soldiers to a war for which he has zero enthusiasm. Nor does one go to war for demonstration purposes. Want to send a message? Call Western Union. A Tomahawk missile is for killing. A serious instrument of war demands a serious purpose. The purpose can be either punitive or strategic: either a spasm of conscience that will inflame our opponents yet leave not a trace, or a considered application of abundant American power to alter the strategic equation that is now heavily favoring our worst enemies in the heart of the Middle East. There are risks to any attack. Blowback terror from Syria and its terrorist allies. Threatened retaliation by Iran or Hezbollah on Israel — that could lead to a gunsof-August regional conflagration. Moreover, a mere punitive pinprick after which Assad emerges from the smoke intact and emboldened would demonstrate nothing but U.S. weakness and ineffectiveness. In 1998, after al-Qaeda blew up two U.S. embassies in Africa, Bill Clinton lobbed a few cruise missiles into empty tents in Afghanistan. That showed ‘em. It did. It showed terminal unseriousness. Al-Qaeda got the message. Two years later, the USS Cole. A year after that, 9/11. Yet even Clinton gathered the wherewithal to launch a sustained air campaign against Serbia. That wasn’t a mere message. That was a military strategy designed to stop the Serbs from ravaging Kosovo. It succeeded. If Obama is planning a messagesending three-day attack, preceded by leaks telling the Syrians to move their important military assets to safety, better that he do nothing. Why run the considerable risk if nothing important is changed? The only defensible action would

be an attack with a strategic purpose, a sustained campaign aimed at changing the balance of forces by removing the Syrian regime’s decisive military advantage — air power. Of Assad’s 20 air bases, notes (retired) Gen. Jack Keane, six are primary. Attack them: the runways, the fighters, the helicopters, the fuel depots, the nearby command structures. Render them inoperable. We don’t need to take down Syria’s air defense system, as we did in Libya. To disable air power, we can use standoff systems — cruise missiles fired from ships offshore and from aircraft loaded with long-range smart munitions that need not overfly Syrian territory. Depriving Assad of his total control of the air and making resupply from Iran and Russia far more difficult would alter the course of the war. That is a serious purpose. Would the American people support it? They are justifiably warweary and want no part of this conflict. And why should they? In three years, Obama has done nothing to prepare the country for such a serious engagement. Not one speech. No explanation of what’s at stake. On the contrary. Last year Obama told us repeatedly that the tide of war is receding. This year, he grandly declared that the entire war on terror “must end.” If he wants Tomahawks to fly, he’d better have a good reason, tell it to the American people and get the support of their representatives in Congress, the way George W. Bush did for both the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. It’s rather shameful that while the British prime minister has recalled Parliament to debate possible airstrikes, Obama has made not a gesture in that direction. If you are going to do this, Mr. President, do it constitutionally. And seriously. This is not about you and your conscience. It’s about applying American power to do precisely what you now deny this is about — helping Assad go, as you told the world he must. Otherwise, just send Assad a text message. You might incur a roaming charge, but it’s still cheaper than a three-day, highly telegraphed, perfectly useless demonstration strike.

Sometimes, just sometimes, everything seems stacked in your favor.

Egypt and limits of democracy
The events in Egypt are causing a great deal of moral and intellectual confusion in Western circles, preoccupied as they are with the concept of democracy (after all, ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was elected). Populist sentimentality abounds. I suggest, instead, judging events by the standards of constitutionalism — an ideology that asserts that human beings have tsvi Bisk certain unalienable rights that cannot be taken from Contributing them either by dictator Columnist or by the majority. Fareed Zakaria makes a good case for constitutionalism taking precedence over democracy in his book, “The Future of Freedom: Illiberal Democracy at Home and Abroad.” Or as Publishers Weekly put it in a review of the book: “Democracy is not inherently good. … It works in some situations and not others, and needs strong limits to function properly.” Better a liberalizing dictator than an elected thug. Morsi was an elected thug; Gen. Abdel Fattah Sisi, the head of the Egyptian armed services and now in charge of the nation, might turn out to be a liberalizing dictator who at least protects minorities and women. Democracy is a mechanism that chooses governments by elections in which the majority decides. But the Founding Fathers were just as afraid of the tyranny of the majority as they were of the tyranny of the individual tyrant. That is why the Constitution was written, separation of powers institutionalized and the Supreme Court (an unelected, nondemocratic body) chosen to adjudicate the constitutionality of laws that might be supported by the overwhelming majority of the population. The 20th century is sufficient proof that majorities can be just as brutal and vicious as tyrants. Jim Crow was supported by the majority; Eastern European pogroms were justified by the majority; Adolf Hitler was supported by the majority; Josef Stalin was revered by the majority. Democracy is only a value when it tends to widen and deepen the constitutionalist protections of individuals and minorities, as it has in the U.S. Blacks and women getting the vote enabled them to fight for their constitutional rights. But Hamas was democratically elected in the Gaza Strip, and the result: fewer rights for women, religious minorities and political opposition. When Americans and Europeans use the term “democracy,” it is shorthand for constitutional democracy; namely, “the will of the people,” limited and moderated by the constitutional protections offered to individuals and minorities, and not majoritarian democracy in which the compact majority (in Egypt’s case, Islamist fanatics) can crush individual and minority rights. How does this relate to Egypt? If you were a Coptic Christian (40 of whose churches have been burned by Morsi supporters), a Shiite Muslim (four of whom were lynched by Morsi supporters in June) or a university-trained woman (no need to detail her status under Islamist rule), would you prefer Sisi’s military dictatorship or majoritarian Islamic “democracy”? Answer that question honestly and you will know which side to root for. You will also know which side has the biggest chance to eventually morph into a constitutional democracy as it integrates into the global economic reality. The military dictatorships of Taiwan and South Korea gradually evolving into constitutional democracies as a consequence of integrating into the global economic order are good historical examples. Tourism is Egypt’s biggest nonfarm employer and earner of foreign currency. What would be its fate under the Islamists, and how would this inhibit Egypt from integrating into the global economy? From a non-Egyptian point of view, which faction would most likely be more rational and maintain the peace with Israel? Consider the consequences of another Israeli-Egyptian war for the region and the world. Moreover, consider the implications for the region and, indeed, the rest of the world if the Muslim Brotherhood defeats the Egyptian military. It would be frightening to say the least.

YoUr opinion: LetterS FroM reADerS

The Pennsylvania State Education Association has sent outmisleading information to the members of the state house of representatives concerning House Bill 76, known as the property tax independence act. I will point out the false and misleading items in the letter, written by Veronica Biegen, a PSEA spokeswoman who sent it to Rep. Greg Vitali, D-Havertown, to try and sway him from sponsoring the bill. 1. HB76 is not flawed as it has been examined by financial people in both the house and senate and as a result the final draft is now being sponsored by senators and rep. as the best way to provide relief for the middle income and lower income homeowners in Pennsylvania. It does not target working class families as it spreads the school tax burden more equitably and opens the door to economic progress. The small sales tax increase and the small income tax increase used to fund HB76 will be shared by all not a few of our citizens . In addition, people traveling thru our state will als0 contribute.

Union misleads on HB76

2. The present system of teacher unions pension funding has put us in debt to the tune of $400 million. This new system Will correct the deficit. Our teachers have the second-highest wages in the nation. While 36,000 of our people are in foreclosure losing their homes. 3. We are 46th out of 50 states in job creation. The sales tax will only increase a little over one percent and the revenue it brings in will increase jobs by out-of-state business coming into Pennsylvania, and this will increase job s for the middle and lower income people. It is a false statement that discretionary income is paying the majority of the sales tax at the present 6 percent rate. Another PSEA omission is the fact of the unfunded school teachers pension of $400 million. This bill will stop the bleeding of our senior homeowners and others who are in foreclosure or very near to losing their homes because they cannot afford to pat the school property tax. 4. If HB76 is not passed our defecit will increase to beyond the $400 million, placing a greater burden on our homeowners and senior citizens who want to stay in their homes. HB76 is a win win for teachers and their retirement.

Please tell all our representatives to sponsor the bill and talk to their other representative to sponsor this HB76 and move forward to greater prosperity and jobs for the citizens of our state.

Gas boom a boon to country
For the greater part of the last 100 years, the United States has relied heavily on foreign sources of energy. Now this dependency is changing. Domestic oil and natural gas development is quickly moving the United States towards energy security. Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation, with an average daily production of 1.2 billion cubic feet (Bcf), is leading this transition. Government data shows that Cabot had 15 of the top 20 producing wells in Pennsylvania in 2012 and since 2008, a total cumulative production of 488 Bcf from just 225 producing wells. Cabot is also proud to champion increased usage of natural gas.

In Susquehanna County alone, Cabot is using natural gas to fuel 60 of its fleet vehicles, power its drilling operations and demonstrating dual-fuel engine technologies during its completions operations. Not only is this an economic benefit for our company and surrounding community, it is a tremendous environmental one as well, helping to reduce greenhouse emission from the air we breathe every single day.

W-B Township needs closer look
There has to be a full disclosure of all records in the administration building and WilkesBarre Township volunteer fire company. Taxpayer money is being abused and squandered by alleged fire chief thief John Yuknavich and ignored by hapless mayor Carl Kuren and council Now a new position is approved for Tom Zurawski, who is not even qualified. Do a background check on him through the Pennsylvania State Police. He’s going to monitor

the police department and public works department, who both do a fantastic job all year round. Now their performance may suffer because Mayor Kuren is having a hissy fit. The employees have to keep looking over their shoulders. Police and public workers unions - if you are harassed or your job is impeded on, file a lawsuit, and stick to it. Is a performance review officer needed? Absolutely not. There should be someone watching Tom Zurawski and Mayor Carl Kuren, such as all the residents of Wilkes-Barre Township. Young and old, or contact my father Joseph Naperkowski. He’ll contact the proper authorities if need be. The townspeople of WilkesBarre Township have to keep the pressure on this administration. It’s like a Three Stooges skit. In my opinion, Mayor Carl Kuren is a bully, but like all bullies, sooner or later they get theirs.

Republicans fear health care success

The Republican/Tea Party agenda of repealing the

Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, will deprive millions of Americans of health care. Why are Republicans so scared of Obamacare? The Republican Party has attempted to brand the health care law a “train wreck” and tried to repeal it 40 times now. If the Republicans really believe that the law is inherently unworkable, why not sit back and let it fail. The truth is that Republicans are terrified Obamacare could actually work The law has provided 13 million Americans with rebates from insurance companies that overcharged them and soon insurer’s will not be allowed to refuse service to those with pre-existing medical conditions. California and New York insurance exchanges already offer policies for the uninsured that are much cheaper than expected. Yet states that are dominated by Republican governors and legislatures are still trying to block millions of their residents from finding out about how to sign up for Obamacare, and are doing everything possible to frighten people away from this most excellent new health care program. This seems almost criminal.

COMMENTARY: GREGORY CLAY

A game of teenage violence and insanity
The reader’s comment read: “And people on MSNBC and liberal media wonder why many white people have a fear of the black community. An Australian murdered in Oklahoma. A baby in a stroller shot and killed in Georgia. A male nurse in Memphis, Tenn., murdered by three blacks. An 89 yr old WWII vet beaten to death by two black thugs. A Dept Gregory of Homeland Clay Security worker with a website Contributing advocating a Columnist war on white people. When and if the black community decides to take some responsibility for these animals they are letting loose on the streets then maybe ‘we can all get along.”’ That fiery rant was one of hundreds on the Huffington Post in response to a recent rash of unspeakable crimes committed by teenagers, mostly black and mostly male. America, we have a problem — and it’s expanding. It’s not just our dirty, little secret anymore. This matter has become global. When Australian baseball player Christopher Lane was killed on Aug. 16 by three teens — two black and one white — Tim Fischer, former deputy prime minister of the country, said international tourists should consider boycotting the United States. “Just for the record,” Fischer said on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Live” last week, “Australia has had zero gun massacres since 1996, and in the United States, 80 people are killed by guns every single day. So it is another example of murder mayhem on Main Street. Yes, people thinking of going to the USA on business or tourist trips should think carefully about it given the statistical fact you are 15 times more likely to be shot dead in the USA than in Australia per capita per a million people.” Apparently, killing for the sheer hell of it has become the latest sport in the field. It makes you shudder. There is even a name for this game: knockout. The “knockout game” occurs when a mob — usually young people — surround a vulnerable and unsuspecting victim or prey. One person in the circle seeking major “street cred” punches the victim in the face, attempting to knock him out. If he can’t, the other mobsters proceed to beat relentlessly and kick the prey just for fun. When the knockout game is black-on-white, the act is called “polar bear hunting.” Police said the three teens in Oklahoma indicated they were “bored” and just had to kill someone to relieve that state of mind. Remember, just for fun. They apparently wanted to “knock out” their victim with gunfire, then make a quick getaway. From another reader: “And Obama really thinks we are going to give up our guns so people like this can have them and we don’t??? Yeah, right! RIP sir …” Many Australians, understandably, are livid regarding these horrific developments. And Fischer ratcheted up the rhetoric with his boycott message. The man does have a point. If the United States can’t clean up its act, foreign tourists should boycott the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. This latest dose of horror is also about money; the stakes just got higher. Major tourist attractions, such as New York, Washington, Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco, would suffer the most. This country would lose billions in tourism revenue. But that’s the price you pay for letting evil fester. Another irate post read: “I hate saying this about my own race or really half of my race, but I’m going to say it. Until black men stop emulating Jay-Z and all that hardcore gangster rap music, you will always be ghetto trash and second-class citizens. You give all hard-working educated brothers and sisters a bad name. If you want to make a better life for yourself, pick up a book, get an education and be a father when you have a child.” When Americans consider traveling to nations labeled as danger zones, what does the U.S. State Department do? Strongly advise them to avoid the offending country like the plague. Now, what goes around comes around. Turnabout is fair play is another applicable cliche. If Australia feels an imminent threat on the streets of the United States, then what right does America have to disavow that nation’s belief? Especially since the United States has publicized purported — and perceived — threats from other countries for decades. Now, let’s get real here. It’s time to call it what it is. This “knockout game” stuff is essentially domestic terrorism, and U.S. law enforcement agencies should label it as such. These cases, as well as those of gangbangers, should be under the jurisdiction of the Department of Homeland Security. But with that comes a few prickly issues. Does Homeland Security issue warnings regarding young black males traveling in pairs or groups? Are there terror alerts posted with yellow, orange and red specifications? Now, the next $64,000 question is this: What do the Roving Reverends of Recompense think of these disturbing developments? That would be Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. They led the re-enactment of the transformative 1963 March on Washington on Aug. 24 and they often mysteriously surface for white-on-black catastrophes. What about now? Sharpton spouted off on MSNBC last week that he only orchestrates his interventions under two conditions: When he’s called in by an affected party, and when justice is conspicuously absent. His logic being that when the Australian baseball player was murdered, the three thugs were diligently arrested and charged, so therefore no need for him to get involved — unlike the muchdelayed arrest in the Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman case. Look, we all know that’s a convenient cop-out. We all aren’t naive or crazy. Everybody won’t be fooled by that quick-draw, lame excuse. Here’s another reader posting: “hmmm, I wonder if obama will get on tv and tell us how this could have been his grandfather. It, afterall could have been; his maternal grandfather is a white ww2 vet.” The first bottom line is this: Sharpton and Jackson never will be fully respected by mainstream America until they equalize and balance their intentions. That is to say, they must exhibit the same amount of noise supporting Christopher Lane and World War II veteran Delbert Belton as they did with slain black teenager Trayvon Martin. The second bottom line: In 2010, there were 31,513 firearm-related deaths in the United States; in Australia of that year, the number was 236. The math is astonishing. The third bottom line: Whether you are killed by Boston Marathon terrorist bombers from Chechnya or a crazed black-teen mob participating in a knockout game or a hardcore gangbanger, the result is the same. Dead is dead. Therefore, the semantics of international terrorism vs. domestic murder don’t matter. Case closed.

YOuR OpiNiON: LETTERS TO THE EDiTOR

Sugar Notch and politics
Mark Robbins, photojournalist for the free monthly in Wilkes-Barre, was a must story to cover, as he was charged with trespassing while on posted and restricted, WilkesBarre police department property. Robbins was taking pictures of vehicles loaned to police by LAG Towing. Found guilty by a magistrate, he appealed the summary violation to Commonwealth Court and was found not guilty. All three of the newspapers ran good size stories, as justice was delivered for Robbins. But the Gazette was the only newspaper that covered me when I went before Magistrate Roberts. I was up on two counts of trespassing for leaving a free community newsletter on a porch in Sugar Notch. The Times Leader did print a letter to the editor I wrote about it before the trial. But now I wish to announce, I was found not guilty on all counts. Let freedom ring. The police had sent notice to the press just in time tell the public of my ‘arrest’ on the day before the primary in May, when I was up for re-election to council. I called to rebut the charges, which the police chief countered, and a bigger article appeared on the day of the election. I was not re-elected and the person who charged me, was also a candidate. He did not win then. In Sugar Notch, all is fair in local politics, no matter how much a free press or regular press, sheds light on it.

playing our country’s flag. The gentleman from WBRE stated they open the early morning news with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag. Fine. Why not the other newscasts? A short time ago I happened to come in contact with a local newscaster. I mentioned to him my request to the station to

display the small flag on the news desk on patriotic observances. He said he didn’t know anything about it. He then looked at the flag pin on my shirt and said he could not wear one while on the air. I asked why not? He immediately poked his finger at his chest, stating when he’s presenting

the news “I want the attention on me.” He repeated it several times. I asked why? He replied, “the flag pin is a distraction and I want the focus on me, me, me.” Inside I was furious. I held my composure and said isn’t the kerchief in your coat a distraction? How about wearing a flashy shirt and tie? Aren’t those

being worn for attention? No answer from him. I further brought to his attention while presenting the news a written caption is moving across the bottom of the screen. Isn’t that a distraction and divided focus? These TV stations will openly display any and all kinds of violence, sexual-

ity, filth, horror, etc., but refuse to display or offer any encouragement to display our national symbol, the American flag. For me, personally, I consider their refusal nothing but shameful. I’m a World War II veteran and proud flag waver.

Boost flag in newscasts
Prior to Memorial Day last year and in 2013 I visited WBRE and WNEP television stations. The purpose of my visit was to appeal to the stations to display a small, desk-size American flag on the news desk on patriotic observances, and to encourage their viewers to display the flag from their homes, businesses, etc. I stated it would be a wonderful way of expressing our appreciation to all Americans living and deceased for their sacrifice in defending our nation and the freedom and liberty we enjoy. Each spokesperson said they would take it into consideration. The flags were never displayed at either TV station on Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day or Veterans Day. Nor was there any announcement to encourage the display of the flag to their viewers. Why? Simple answer: Americans have become timid with regards to dis-
