The Luzerne County Council-
elect is expected to select a
county manager next week,
which means the new home rule
government would operate with
an interim appointment in the
key position for only a short
time.
The countys home rule transi-
tion committee, which includes
citizens and home rule charter
drafters in addition to the coun-
cil-elect, completed about 10
hours of in-person interviews
with the five remaining manager
applicants on Wednesday night.
The group came up with a pre-
liminary rank-
ing of the five
and informally
agreed on the
top two, several
committee
members said.
Councilman-
elect Tim
McGinley said
committee
members cant
make a final se-
lection until
consultant Ken
Mohr finalizes
background,
reference and
Internet checks
of all five. Com-
mittee mem-
bers also agreed
to review their
paperwork and notes on each
candidate before next weeks
meeting.
Mohr was also instructed to
reach out to the applicants to
start discussing their compensa-
tion expectations, McGinley
said.
At least a majority of council
members must set the managers
salary after the council is seated
Jan. 2, and the compensation
cant exceed or be less than 55
percent of the district attorneys
salary.
The county district attorney is
currently paid $163,602, or
$1,000 less than the salary for a
county court of common pleas
judge, which means the manager
must receive at least $89,981.

BAGHDADAterrifying wave of bombs
tore throughmostly Shiite neighborhoods of
BaghdadonThursday, killingat least 69peo-
pleandevokingfears that Iraqcoulddissolve
into a new round of sectarian violence now
that American troops have left.
The attacks appeared to be a well-coordi-
nated assault by Sunni militants linked to al-
Qaida and targeted markets, grocery stores,
cafes and government buildings in a dozen
neighborhoods. They coincided with a gov-
ernment crisis that has already strained ties
between the two sects to the breaking point.
For many Iraqis, this could be the begin-
ningof a nightmare scenario: The fragile alli-

WILKES-BARRE A Luzerne
County public defender was or-
dered Thursday to represent a
man charged with violating a
protection-from-abuse order de-
spite the attorneys objection
that it violated the offices newly
implemented policy limiting the
type cases it will accept.
Chief Public Defender Al Flora
Jr. said attorney Ferris Webby,
who just happened to be in the
courtroom, was directed by
Judge Tina Polachek Gartley to
represent the man.
The directive marks the first
time a public defender has faced
a challenge to the policy, imple-
mented Monday, that states the
office will represent only per-
sons charged with homicide or a
felony sex offense, with certain
exceptions, and several types of
other hearings, includingmental
health commitments and pa-
role/probation violations.
Flora said the man showed up
at the hearing withone of the let-
ters the office has beengivingde-
fendants. The letter states the
person has been denied repre-
sentation, even though he or she
may qualify financially, because
the office lacks the manpower to
represent them.

tion because his assistant public

POLICE BLOTTER
Another woman has come forward to
say that Bill Conlin, the Hall of Fame
baseball writer and former Philadelphia
Daily News columnist, sexually assault-
ed her when she was a child.
The woman, who asked not to be
identified, said Conlin repeatedly
abused her when she was about 7 and
lived in the Whitman Square section of
Washington Township, Gloucester
County. She was a childhood friend of
Conlins son, Peter, andoftenspent time
at his house nearby. It was there, she
said, that Conlin molested her.
She is the fifth person to tell The In-
quirer that Conlin assaulted her. On
Tuesday, Conlin retired from the Daily
News hours before The Inquirer report-
ed that three women and a man said
Conlin had abused them when they
were children in the 1970s.
The woman spoke out Wednesday as
the sports-oriented website Deadspin
published an e-mail exchange between
Conlin and Deadspin reporter A.J. Dau-
lerio in which Conlin fretted about a
then-expectedstoryinTheInquirer that
would report the stories of abuse. He
contacted Daulerio, who had written a
favorable story about
him for Philadelphia
Magazine, onMonday,
less thanahalf-hour af-
ter an Inquirer report-
er called him at his
Florida condominium
for comment on the al-
legations that he had
abused children.
In e-mail messages to Daulerio, Con-
lin derided his accusers as late middle-
agedwomen whodecidedit was Sand-
usky time, a reference to former Penn-
sylvania State University coach Jerry
Sandusky, who is charged with sexually
abusing boys.
Im a lot bigger to the Daily News
than Sandusky ever was to Penn State,
he wrote. And yet, Daulerio wrote, Con-
lin feared the loss of his career.
They can toss my good name out
there while alleging a crime that was
never charged? Conlin wrote. F- that.
Nowhere in the e-mail exchange did
Conlin deny that any abuse occurred.
Conlin told Daulerio, who described
himself as a longtime admirer of Con-
lins, that he hoped to explain himself to
Deadspins huge audience but wanted
first to see if they (The Inquirer) name
names. Imsure the accusers were prom-
ised anonymity. In the story, three of
the accusers, including Conlins niece,
were named.
After hanging up on an Inquirer re-
porter, Conlin, 77, said via e-mail, My
attorney will be in touch. . . . Ive been
doing this 51 years. My attorney will do
my talking.
Daulerio said Conlin told himhe wor-
ried that if the allegations were made
public, his family -- particularly his
grandchildren-- wouldsuffer. He saidhe
believed the accusations were being
made in part because of what he de-
scribed as a decades-old family vendet-
ta.
One of Conlins accusers is his niece
Kelley Blanchet, who said her uncle sex-
ually assaulted her decades ago when
she was 7. Her brother walked in on the
assault andtoldhis mother, whotoldhis
father, she said.
Blanchets father, Harry Hasson, said
he angrily confronted Conlin, who
broke into tears and insisted that he had
only touched the girls leg. From that
point on, Hasson said, the relationship
between his family and that of his broth-
er-in-law was strained.
The woman who came forward
Wednesday described abuse mirroring
that described by the other accusers.
She said Conlin groped and fondled
her as she sat in his living room watch-
ing television. Andshe saidhe assaulted
her inanupstairs bedroomafter inviting
her to see a litter of kittens.
It was soupsetting, saidthe woman,
now 44 and a mother of three. She said
that on two occasions, Conlin touched
her genitals and put his fingers inside
her.

SAN FRANCISCO As many as 60
people were left homeless Thursday by
a San Francisco apartment building fire
that took firefighters nearly three hours
to control, Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-
White said.
The five-alarm blaze engulfed three
buildings before 150 firefighters, or
about half the departments daytime
firefighting force, were able to bring the
fire under control around 3 p.m., Hayes-
White said.
The blaze sent one firefighter to the
hospital with a burn to the neck, and a
civilian was treated for mild smoke in-
halation, Hayes-White said. A second
firefighter, originally reported as hospi-
talized, was given oxygen at the scene.
It was a challenging fire to fight, but
given the time of day, it was actually
helpful because most people were out
of their dwellings, the chief said. Oth-
er than two minor injuries we were ve-
ry fortunate given the magnitude of the
fire.
Hayes-White said the fire started in
one of the neighborhoods trademark
three-story Victorian homes and spread
to a nearby apartment building and a
single-family home. A total of 32 dwell-
ings were destroyed.
As the fire burned during the after-
noon, a pillar of thick smoke rose over
the residential neighborhood dotted
with century-old Victorian homes. Au-
thorities closed several blocks of
streets, causing massive traffic jams in
the area.
Firefighters believed they had suc-
cessfully evacuated everyone from the
buildings, with everyone accounted for,
Hayes-White said.
The cause of the blaze was not yet
known, but arson crews were to be in
the building during the night trying to
determine what sparked the fire.
The fire spread easily due to brisk
winds and because the building where
the fire started was made of wood and
directly attached to other buildings,
Hayes-White said.
The Red Cross was caring for resi-
dents displaced by the fire.
Up to 60 left homeless by San Francisco apartment fire
It took three hours and 150
firefighters to extinguish the blaze,
which engulfed three buildings.

assistance.
Flooding heavily damaged the li-
brary. The grant will help the library at
its temporary location, the former
Blockbuster in the Insalaco Center.
Computers and Internet access are a
top priority.
The West Pittston Library still
needs support to continue to pursue

environment for growth, discovery, and
connection, said Anne Bramblett Barr,
library director. We are truly grateful
for this grant and we thank the Cham-
ber for awarding the library.

Selenski associate Patrick Russin told a
judge Thursday he is not the sinister
man described in newspaper stories
that detailed the May 2003 deaths of
Frank James and Adeiye Keiler.
I never dreamed Id be here in front
(of a judge), Russin, 41, told Luzerne
County Senior Judge
Chester Muroski be-
fore the judge sen-
tenced him to 10 to 20
years in prison on
third-degree homicide
charges. I did what I
did, but its not me.
Thats not the (kind
of) person I am.
Investigators say Russin and Selenski
killed James, 29, of Wilkes-Barre, and
Keiler, 22, of Kingston, onMay14, 2003.
Russin pleaded guilty to the killings in
November 2003, a month after he and
Selenski had been charged.
A Luzerne County jury acquitted Se-
lenski, 38, intheslayings inMarch2006.
But Selenski was convicted of burning
their bodies at the Mount Olivet Road,
Kingston Township, home where he
lived at the time.
Russin was a key witness against Se-
lenski during the trial.
Before Muroski handed down the
sentence, the defendants brother, Ray
Russin, also told the court his brother
has beenunfairlydepictedbythemedia.
Ray Russin described his brother as a
caring, sweet human being and said
their whole family has suffered, includ-
ing their mother, whomRay Russinsaid
is also serving a sentence.
Also testifying was former longtime
chief public defender Basil Russin, the
defendants cousin.
He has tremendous family support,
said Basil Russin, who still represents
criminal defendants.
Muroski said Patrick Russin did not
do the community a service by partici-
patinginthekillings, but hedidbycoop-
erating with investigators and offering
truthful testimony.
That cooperation, Muroski said, is
what led to the sentence he handed

DALLAS Lisa Stull dreams of the
day when a permanent homeless shelter
for men opens in Wyoming Valley.
Until then, Stull will continue to offer
the homeless a two-week getaway vaca-
tion from life on the streets. For the
third consecutive year,
Camp Orchard Hill
near Dallas -- a non-de-
nominational Chris-
tian camp -- is hosting
the homeless men of

known as VISION.
About 25 men are at
the camp for a two-
week period through
Monday. More than
700 volunteers and lo-
cal businesses, church-
es, colleges and
schools have support-
ed the project, Stull
said, to give the men a
reprieve from the ele-
ments and a chance to
get back on their feet.
Unlike the other shelters that Mother
Theresa Haven utilizes, Camp Orchard
Hill provides cabins, showers, a full gym,
a TV room, lounge area and breakfast,
lunch and dinner.
The men dont have to leave early in
the morning and wait to go back to a
shelter at the end of the day, Stull, 47,

a new trailer placed in a park of 50-or-
so others for flood victims just like
them, and just in time for Christmas.
Joe Metzler, a housing specialist
with the Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agencys Disaster Housing Op-
erations, gave the Kellys a walk-
through of their trailer, acquainting
them with the heating system and fire
extinguisher locations before having
them sign paperwork.
The couple have been staying with
Helens mother since flood water rose
a foot above the second floor of their
Wyoming County home on Sept. 9.
It gets rough living with people.
You just feel like youre an inconve-
nience, Helen said.
FEMA provides rental assistance to
displaced flood victims for up to 18
months, or up to two years under ex-
tenuating circumstances. A home
must have sustained at least $11,000
in damage and be unlivable.
FEMA spokesman Mike Sweet said
an incredible lack of rental re-
sources necessitated FEMA bringing
in the trailers, and limited space in
area trailer parks and other suitable
properties necessitated construction
of a park just for flood victims.
Helen is grateful for the help.
Im like on cloud nine right now. I

For some people, Russin
(and others) are vigilantes be-
cause they wiped out drug
dealers, Muroski said, adding
their motive instead was they
were out there removing the
competition.
Deputy District Attorney
David Pedri said he and fellow
prosecutor ADA Michael Mel-
nick were originally seeking a
20-to-40-year sentence for Rus-
sin, but that after his continued
cooperation, decided last
month they would not seek the
maximum sentence.
Mr. Russin did everything
he couldfor us. Weve met with
himnumerous times, and each
time (Russin has been) truth-
ful, forthcoming and helpful,
Pedri said.
Pedri said Russin has ex-
pressed his sorrow and regret
for the two mens deaths, and
Russin has never denied re-
sponsibility and understands
that what happened was
wrong.
Investigators allege Selenski
and Russin lured James and
Keiler to Selenskis home un-
der the guise that they were
buying crack.
James and Keiler ate pizza
with Selenski and Russin in a
detached garage before they
were killed by shotgun blasts,
arrest records say.
County Detective Gary Cap-
itano said Thursday that Rus-
sin did not actually pull the
trigger, but held the gun to the
two men and searched one of
their bodies, playingonly a sec-
ondary role to Selenski.
Capitano andPedri saidthey
spoke with James and Keilers
familymembers beforethesen-
tencing. Both families, they
said, know Russin did not ac-
tively participate in the deaths
and were not asking for a long-
er sentence for him.
Capitano also said Russin
has cooperated in dozens of
other cases that have led to ap-
proximately 30 convictions, in-
cluding that of Paul Weakley,
whowas chargedwithSelenski
inthe May 2002 deaths of Tam-
my Fassett and Michael Ker-
kowski.
Weakley pleaded guilty to
federal charges and is serving a
life sentence.
Selenski is still awaiting trial
in Fassetts and Kerkowskis
deaths. The trial has been con-
tinued numerous times.
As part of Russins plea
agreement with investigators,
he must continue to cooperate
and testify at any future trials.
Russin was sentenced on
two counts of third-degree
murder, two counts of robbery,
two counts of abuse of a corpse
and one count of criminal con-
spiracy.
He received credit for eight
years and 10 months already
served in prison, and will likely
serve only 21 more months af-
ter Muroski said he would rec-
ommend Russin be released
upon serving the minimum.
Russin was represented by
attorney William Ruzzo

at the camp 24/7 unless they
have jobs or appointments,
which relieves Mother Theresa
Haven of the financial strain of
utilizing their van several times a
day. It also allows the men to
have a break from the streets for
a two-week period.
Stull said the camp atmo-
sphere lends itself to a vacation
of sorts. She said when the men
arrive, each is given a newpillow
and blanket, newsocks, a hat and
gloves.
I know their names, their sto-
ries, Stull said. Homelessness
is a hard life. Its grueling to be
out there, especially during the
winter months.
Stull said that even if they have
a place to sleep at night, the men
are on the streets during the day
trying to survive. She said they
have health issues that need at-
tention, and all could benefit
from counseling to help transi-
tion back into society. Many
homeless men and women are
unaccounted for because they
have alcohol and drug addic-
tions, making them unwelcome
in shelters, Stull said.
We hope to inspire them to
get the help they need, Stull
said.
Catholic Social Services, un-
der the direction of Monsignor
Joseph Kelly, wants to establish a
permanent shelter for homeless
men in Wilkes-Barre. The plan
has been put on hold because the
homeless population appears to
be declining, a statistic that
some dispute.Stull said Christ-
mas gifts are donated. Dunkin
Donuts and Bagel Art in Dallas
provide breakfast each day and
lunch is made of leftovers.
I feel that the most important
thing we can give the men, how-
ever, is our time, Stull said. I
always encourage our volunteers
to sit and have a meal with them,
play games, invest in them per-
sonally.
Stull invites anyone interested
to come out to Christmas dinner
and help. Dinner will be served
at 5:30 p.m. Christmas day.
We want the men to interact
with people other than their fel-
lowhomeless, Stull said. We al-
so offer an alternative to some-
one who perhaps has suffered a
loss, divorce, or who is alone to
come and spend time with us.
Camp Orchard Hill plans to
continue to offer the two-week
time share concept.
Im not a homeless expert,
Stull said. But I knowthat Camp
Orchard Hill is a place for them
to call home for the holidays.

nana has a home, she said.
Even though Helens mother
will host a large family dinner
on Christmas Day, Helen said
she wants to make her own
small dinner in her own kitchen
even if I dont eat a lot. My
daughter has a tree for me al-
ready, so were set.
Across the muddy dirt road
on which work crews are still
laying down stone, Shirley and
Francis Porasky waited outside
their new trailer while FEMA of-
ficials searched for a front door
key. They were given the correct
deadbolt key, but not the right
one for the doorknob lock, they
discovered, after their FEMA
housing specialist had left.
The little mix-up didnt damp-
en their mood, as they, too, were
excited to have their own place
to stay until their home in the
Falls section of Exeter Township
is repaired. That could take
months.
Weve been working and
cleaning and, after all that dust,
its so nice to walk into some-
thing like this, Shirley said.
This trailer is amazing. I mean,
I walk in there and its not even
like a trailer. Its so open. You
dont have that tight feeling.
While they could have moved
in Thursday, Francis said he and
Shirley would stay with their
sons until after the holidays
when, hopefully, construction
crews will have the roads in the
park in better condition and util-
ity work done.
Michael Kapuscinski, FEMA
field operations manager, said
there were 12 trailers occupied
as of noon on Thursday. He
hoped to have 25 families in
trailers by the end of this week.
We wanted to get this place
up and running. The goal is to
get as many people housed by
Christmas as we possibly can,
he said.
The Highlands Temporary
Community Housing Site,
which lies on 8 acres off Well-
wood Drive, used to be wide-
open field, said Jack Schuback,
FEMA Federal Disaster Recov-
ery coordinator for Pennsylva-
nia.
The spot was chosen because
it was relatively level and close
to utilities.
The land owner is allowing
temporary use of the land at no
charge, and FEMA received
great cooperation from the
Wyoming County commission-
ers and Tunkhannock Township
supervisors as well, Schuback
said.

Lawyers: Manning a victim
A
seven-day hearing into the biggest
national security leak in U.S. histo-
ry ended Thursday with defense law-
yers insisting that the accused soldier
was a victim of overreaching by a mil-
itary that didnt even follow its own
rules for safeguarding sensitive in-
formation.
The government argued that it had
made its case for a court-martial of Pfc.
Bradley Manning, a troubled young
intelligence analyst who prosecutors
said aided the enemy by leaking troves
of documents.
Lawyers for the prosecution and
defense gave closing arguments in the
preliminary hearing at a military base
outside Washington to determine
whether Manning should be tried for
allegedly sending hundreds of thou-
sands of diplomatic documents and
Iraq and Afghanistan war zone field
reports to the anti-secrecy website
WikiLeaks.
BEIRUT
Observers head to Syria
Syria said Thursday that more than
2,000 of its soldiers and security forces
have been killed during a nine-month
uprising, on the day an Arab League
delegation prepared to post foreign
monitors, part of a plan to end the
crisis.
The Arab League delegates arrive in
the midst of a new international uproar
over activist reports that government
troops killed more than 200 people in
two days. Neighboring Turkey con-
demned President Bashar Assad over
the bloodbath.
The United Nations says more than
5,000 people have been killed as Syria
has sought to put down the uprising.
COLUMBIA, S.C.
Judge blocks alien law
A federal judge on Thursday blocked
several provisions of South Carolinas
tough new immigration law from tak-
ing effect New Years Day, including a
requirement for law officers to check
the immigration status of people they
pull over if they suspect they are in the
country illegally.
U.S. District Judge Richard Gergels
ruling also blocked sections making it a
state crime not to carry immigration
paperwork or for illegal immigrants to
transport or house themselves.
The federal government sued South
Carolina earlier this year over, chal-
lenging the constitutionality of the law
set to take effect Jan. 1.
WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND
Quakes rock Christchurch
A series of strong earthquakes struck
the New Zealand city of Christchurch
on Friday, rattling buildings. There was
no tsunami alert issued and the city
appeared to have been spared major
damage.
One person was injured and was
taken to a hospital, and four people had
to be rescued after being trapped by a
rock fall, Christchurch police said in a
statement. But there were no immedi-
ate reports of serious injuries or wide-
spread damage in the city, which is still
recovering from a devastating February
earthquake that killed 182 people and
destroyed much of the downtown area.
The first 5.8-magnitude quake struck
Friday afternoon. Minutes later, a 5.3-
magnitude aftershock hit. About an
hour after that, another 5.8-magnitude
temblor hit.

BETHLEHEM, N.H. Republican
presidential candidate Mitt Romney
on Thursday spurned chief rival Newt
Gingrichs challenge for a one-on-one
debate ahead of the Jan. 3 Iowa cau-
cuses but dismissed the notion sug-
gested by the former House speaker
that hes afraid to participate in
such a face-off.
Weve had many occasions to de-
bate together and well have more, I
presume quite a few more, before this
is finished, Romney said. But Im not
going to narrow this down to a two-
person race while there are still a
number of other candidates that are
viable, important candidates in the
race. I want to show respect to them.
Gingrich has called on Romney to
condemn or defend attack ads airing
in Iowa by groups friendly to Romney,
a former Massachusetts governor.
Campaigning Thursday in Virginia,
Gingrich told reporters that Romneys
decision tells you a lot about Gov.
Romney. Gingrich said he will contin-
ue to say that Romney doesnt mind
hiding out behind millions of dollars
of negative ads, but he doesnt want to
defend them. The ads are false.
Gingrich said he doesnt think Io-
wans will reward falsehoods by mil-
lionaires.
In a brief interview aboard his cam-
paign bus as it rumbled through New
Hampshire, Romney reflected on the
GOP nomination fight thats seen
many candidates and non-candidates
rise and fall in the polls. He men-
tioned Gingrich, Minnesota Rep. Mi-
chele Bachmann, Atlanta businessman
Herman Cain, Texas Gov. Rick Perry
and real estate magnate Donald
Trump.
Asked whether Trump and Gingrich
were of equal seriousness as presiden-
tial aspirants, Romney said: Im not
going to get into that. Its up to you to
make your own assessment.
Romney also distanced himself
anew from the standoff between the
GOP-controlled House and the Demo-
cratic-run White House over a two-
month extension of a cut in payroll
taxes.
We have, what, eight people run-
ning for president? Romney said.
The idea of us all running to Wash-
ington and trying to say to the various
parties, Heres where I think you
should go, is not something which
our party needs. It is not likely to be
conducive to reaching a conclusion.
For weeks, Romney has refused to
be pinned down on how Congress
should break an impasse that threat-
ens to raise taxes for 160 million work-
ers the latest pressing policy debate
he has sidestepped.
House Republicans have rejected a
bipartisan compromise in the Senate
that would have kept the tax cuts go-
ing for two months, and called instead
for negotiations toward a one-year ex-
tension of the reduction.

COLUMBIA, Mo. Wal-Mart
and health officials awaited tests
Thursday on a batch of powdered
infant formula that was removed
from more than 3,000 stores na-
tionwide after a Missouri new-
bornwhoconsumedit diedfroma
rare infection.
The bacteria in question occur
naturally in the environment and
in plants such as wheat and rice.
But the most worrisome appear-
ances have been in dried milk and
powdered formula, which is why
manufacturers routinely test for
the pathogens.
Wal-Mart pulled the Enfamil
Newborn formula fromshelves as
a precaution after the death of lit-
tle Avery Cornett in the southern
Missouri town of Lebanon.
The government has not or-
dered a recall, and the manufac-
turer said tests showed the batch
was negative for the bacteria be-
fore it was shipped. Additional
tests were under way.
We decided it was best to re-
move the product until we learn
more, Wal-Mart spokeswoman
Dianna Gee said. It could be re-
turned to the shelves.
Customers who bought formu-
la in 12.5-ounce cans with the lot
number ZP1K7G have the option
of returning them for a refund or
exchange, Gee said.
The product is not exclusive to
Wal-Mart. The manufacturer,
Mead Johnson Nutrition, did not
immediately say how widely dis-
tributed the formula was among
other stores.

WASHINGTON After 10 years of war in Afghan-
istan, a persistent lack of trust between the U.S. and
Pakistan still complicates operations along the critical
Afghanistan border and was a key factor in the errant
American airstrikes late last month that killed 24 Pa-
kistani troops.
U.S. officials on Thursday accepted some blame for
the deadly incident that infuriated Pakistani leaders,
promptingPakistantoshut downkey supply routes for
the war and further eroding Americas already rocky
relations with Islamabad. The Defense Department
briefedreporters Thursdayonthe conclusions reached
in its investigation into the November incident.
But the U.S. did not apologize, despite the embar-
rassing series of communications and coordination er-
rors. And as of Thursday afternoon, it had not briefed
Pakistani leaders on the results of the investigation.
Pakistan refused to cooperate in the investigation.
And the U.S. report placing some of the blame on
Islamabad is likely to only increase the Pakistani
leaders fury, hamper any hope of rebuilding the rela-
tionship and delay the opening of the supply routes.

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. A college stu-
dent says she hadnothingtoeat but two
candy bars while her car was stuck in
the snow for nine days in a remote area
of Arizona.
Meanwhile, a Texas family found
themselves struggling to breathe after
nearly two days intheir SUVafter it was
buried in a snowdrift on a rural New
Mexico highway.
The frigid ordeals ended with sepa-
rate rescues Wednesday for Lauren
Weinberg and the Higgins family. Au-
thorities said they were all recovering
after being taken to hospitals. Weinberg
was released early Thursday.
You can say survival skills or a mira-
cle, either way, Phoenix police Officer
James Holmes said of Weinberg. But
the good thing is shes home and safe.
Yvonne Higgins remained in the hos-
pital with pneumonia while her hus-
band, David Higgins, and his father
were ontheir way topickupthe familys
vehicle after it was pulled by rescuers
fromthe snowdrift. The family plans to
return to Texas when his wife is re-
leased from the hospital, though it was
unclear when that might be.
Weinberg. a 23-year-old undergradu-
ate at Arizona State University, left her
mothers home in Phoenix on Dec. 11
and said her car became stuck a day lat-
er in the snowy mountains to the north.
Two U.S. Forest Service employees
on snowmobiles found her Wednesday
while they were checking gates on for-
est roads.
Other than being cold, hungry and
thirsty, Weinberg was in good condi-
tion, lucidandspeaking coherently, one
of the Forest Service employees said.

has set up shop at Best Western
Genetti in Wilkes-Barre six
times in the last three months
because of the areas demogra-
phy. Its a fairly large area that
isnt too expensive, he said.
Klotzin said the company
could pay $200,000 to $300,000
toadvertise inNewYorkor Bos-
tonbutonlyabout$10,000inthe
Wyoming Valley.
Monroe said he has seen a
largemixof visitorsattheHilton
this week. Among them were a
few flood victims hoping for
cash while they awaited insur-
Monroesaid, notingthat hisem-
ployer is the largest coin buyer
andthelargest second-handgui-
tar buyer in the world with loca-
tions in five countries.
Employees abide by all local
and state laws, regulations and
permits, requiring all sellers to
provide photo identification to
prevent anyone from selling
themstolen goods, he said.
Employees examine items
andtell visitors what a collector
would pay for them. The visitor
candecideundernopressure
if they want to sell.
Brittany Thomas, who han-
dles the companys media rela-
tions, said good newspaper cir-
culation here makes Wilkes-
Barreattractivetothecompany,
as newspapers are the most ef-
fective means to get the word
out that the show is in the area
and what it has to offer.

Bob Conwell was neither. I
rounded up some odds and ends of
no particular value to me that I
thought would be good to convert
to cash I can use anytime, the Ha-
nover Township resident said.
Conwell was intrigued when
Monroe, who has a fondness for
pocket watches, initially pegged
the one Conwell brought in as hav-
ing a value of $60 after a quick go-
over but asked Conwell to wait
while he checkedwitha researcher
at the companys data center.
It turns out Monroe was able to
offer Conwell $225 for the time-
piece a 21-jewel railroad watch
that belonged to Conwells late fa-
vorite uncle.

Federal legislation that would
greatly expand mandated report-
ing of suspected child abuse or
neglect directly to law enforce-
ment authorities will result in
more investigations, some local
police chiefs said.
While some of the increased
reports may turn out to be false,
the chiefs say theyd gladly
spend time on investigations
rather than have child abuse go
unpunished.
I would rather be busy and
err on the side of caution to in-
vestigate all alleged incidents
rather than having one incident
not reported, Swoyersville Po-
lice Chief Thomas DiMaria said.
Hanover Township Police
Chief Al Walker and Kingston
Police Chief
Keith Keiper
agreed.
U.S. Sen.
Robert Casey,
D-Scranton, re-
cently intro-
duced legisla-
tion known as
the Speak Up to Protect Every
Abused Kid Act in the U.S. Sen-
ate that would require all states
to pass and enforce a law requir-
ing all adults to report known or
suspected child abuse or neglect
to authorities.
Casey drafted the measure to
strengthen child-protection laws
in the wake of an alleged cover-
up of reported sexual assaults on
children by a former Penn State
assistant football coach.
During a hearing last week on
child abuse laws held by the Sen-
ates Health, Education, Labor
and Pension Subcommittee,
Casey said there is no uniform
requirement among states about
reporting child abuse and ne-
glect to authorities.
There is still a lot of leeway
for states to determine what
constitutes child abuse and ne-
glect, Casey said at the hearing.
This is one area where further
scrutiny is needed to determine
how to best ensure states are up-
holding a high standard of re-
porting.
DiMaria, Walker and Keiper
said they would expect an in-
crease in false reports of suspect-
ed child abuse.
We get false reports now that
have to be investigated. We fig-
ure out the facts, and if the facts
lead us to abuse or neglect, then
we prosecute, Keiper said.
There are going to be situa-
tions where people not having
good intentions will report a
false claim to try to benefit
themselves, Walker said. If we
find out the complaint was
knowingly falsely reported, then
we can prosecute under the false
reports to law enforcement stat-
ute.

It would increase mandated
reporting of suspected child
abuse or neglect.

JACKSON TWP. Supervi-
sors adopted the 2012 budget
Thursday morning, stabilizing
taxes for the upcoming year.
Supervisor Al Fox said proper-
ty taxes will stay put at 1.32
mills, but it wasnt an easy proc-
ess. He said increased expenses
forced the board to make cuts
throughout the budget in order
to keep the tax rate steady.
A mill is $1 tax for every
$1,000 in assessed property val-
ue.
Expenses increased by about
$185,000 between last year and
this year, and Fox said slight
cuts were made to every budget
item, which resulted in an over-
all savings of about $47,000. He
said the move actually created
more revenue than if the board
were to hike the tax rates.
Fox said the cuts did not af-
fect the townships various ser-
vices, including police, fire and
ambulance and a full-time secre-
tary to handle zoning and other
inquiries.
The only increase residents
will see is a $20 hike in sewer
rates. Fox said that over the past
three years the township has
been able to absorb rate increas-
es from the Dallas Area Munici-
pal Authority, but this year it
just wasnt possible.
In other business, residents
questioned the board about a
sewer replacement project that
has been ongoing for two years.
Resident Mitch Smolow asked
why the project on Bulford Road
was being paid for by those resi-
dents.
Solicitor Jeff Malak said the
project benefits mostly those
residents, and the township is
splitting some of the costs for
the work.
Fox added no grants were
available for the project and
state Department of Environ-
mental Protection officials rec-
ommended the financial plan as
the only viable way to get the
work done.
Fox also said a meeting was
held with those residents before
construction and most agreed
with how the process would be
handled financially.
Chairman John Wilkes Jr. said
the reason a municipal sewer
system is being constructed in
the development is because
there were many failures of
the existing system, and the
township didnt want individual
residents to pay thousands of
dollars to replace the sewers.

EARLY
DEADLINE
CHICAGO Cardinal Fran-
cis George has never been shy
about expressing his views on
divisive issues like abortion
rights and civil unions for same-
sex couples.
But gay rights groups said the
Chicago archbishop crossed the
line when he compared the gay
rights movement tothe KuKlux
Klan.
Georges comments aired
Wednesday on a Fox Chicago
newscast. The entire interview
is scheduled to run Sunday eve-
ning.
Inthe televisedclip, the cardi-
nal was asked his viewof a local
pastor who had expressed con-
cern that next years annual gay
pride parade could force the
church to cancel its morning
Mass. George said he supported
the pastor.
Hes telling us that they
wont be able tohave churchser-
vices on Sunday if thats the
case. You know, you dont want
the gay liberation movement to
morph into something like the
Ku Klux Klan, demonstrating in
the streets against Catholi-
cism. George said. SoI thinkif
thats whats happening, and I
dont knowthat it is, but I would
respect the local pastors, you
know, position on that.
George acknowledged that it
was a strong analogy, but reiter-
ated his sentiment.
The rhetoric of the Ku Klux
Klan; the rhetoric of some of the
gay liberation people who is
the enemy? Who is the enemy?
The Catholic Church, George
said.

Chicago Tribune
KOKOMO, Ind. In a quiet
park on the eastern edge of this
auto manufacturing town, a
gleaming ring of black granite
walls and monuments stand in
solemn tribute to the war dead.
Hundreds of names are etched in
stone, many of them long forgot-
ten to history.
Not so the six newest addi-
tions: Brian M. Clemens. Robert
L. McKinley. James E. Swain.
Rickey E. Jones. Nathan J. Frigo.
David N. Simmons.
Their smiles, their voices,
their Little League games, their
yearbook photos are fresh memo-
ries here to friends and family.
Now the six all of whom died
in the Iraq war are honored
next to the walls on a granite
monument inscribed with the
words Global War on Terror.
This town of 45,000 is known
for embracing the military,
whether its memorializing its
fallen heroes in the middle of the
war, stretching Veterans Day into
an eight-day tribute or flying
POW-MIA flags outside the
schools.
But now, in the wake of the de-
parture of the last U.S. troops
from Iraq, Kokomo joins hun-
dreds of smaller towns across the
nation that will be wrestling with
the legacy of a nearly nine-year
war that has claimed nearly
4,500 lives, wounded tens of
thousands, and became one of
the most politically divisive con-
flicts in American history.
More than 1.5 million Ameri-
cans served in a war that intro-
duced the nation to new battle-
fields (Ramadi, Fallu-
jah, Nasiriyah) and
IEDs (improvised ex-
plosive devices), a
conflict that lasted so
long some soldiers at
the end were elemen-
tary school students
at the beginning.
In Kokomo a
town where the
names of the war
dead in Iraq and Af-
ghanistan were read
aloud last Veterans
Day there will be
reverberations for
years to come, from
the churches and col-
leges to grieving
mothers and a new
generation of vets
nervous about the troubled econ-
omy.
What I worry about is once
Americans forget about the war,
theyre going to forget about the
people who fought the war, says
Jason Vazquez, a 28-year-old Na-
vy veteran of two tours in Iraq
and one in Afghanistan. I never
really understood it from the
Vietnam guys, but I can see it
now: For the troops ... the war is
really never over.
Memorials, stories abound
Howard County is dotted with
memorials remembering veter-
ans whose service spans three
centuries.
Theyre stone and brass, grand
and modest, indoor and outdoor.
They commemorate the Civil
War, the Spanish American War,
World Wars I and II, Korea, Viet-
nam, Iraq and Afghanistan. And
a group of vets hopes to add to
that: Its trying to raise more
than $300,000 for a new memo-
rial honoring military families.
There are individual tributes,
too. After James Swain, a 2002
Kokomo High School graduate,
honors student and statistician
for the girls basketball team, was
killed in Fallujah at the age of 20,
a scholarship was established in
his name.
In this central Indiana county
where veterans make up about 9
percent of the population, almost
everyone has a neighbor, ac-
quaintance or relative who has
donned a military uniform.
Bob Ladd, the countys veteran
service officer, knows many of
them. His office caseload of
about 3,500 includes about 1,000
vets from the 9/11 generation,
many of whom are dealing with
traumatic brain injury, hearing
loss or PTSD.
He hears the stories of young
warriors whove returned home,
scared to drive, haunted by IEDs
hidden on roads in Iraq, or so wa-
ry of crowds, they shop deep into
the night.
Theyre still kids, says Ladd,
a Desert Storm vet. Youre go-
ing from high school to a combat
zone. I believe the military does
mature a person, but when you
see what they have and then
youre trying to readjust when
youre 21, 22, its tough.
So tough that some have taken
desperate measures. Ladd says
he knows of five young vets in
the county who attempted sui-
cide over the last year one
ended in death.
Ladds office tries to
smooth the way for
these newest vets,
helping them navigate
the bureaucratic maze
to apply for benefits,
get counseling, if need-
ed, and take advantage
of the Post 9/11 GI bill
to attend school.
They definitely
earned it and they de-
serve it, he says, and
their lives will be bet-
ter.
Patrick McCrumb, a
Marine Corps reservist
who served in Iraq and
Afghanistan before re-
turning in 2010, is still
adjusting. It hasnt
been easy.
At first, he says, people try to
tiptoe around you to avoid talk-
ing about what you did the last
year of your life. No one wants to
dive in the pool.
Even now, hes not sure where
he belongs. When youre there,
the only place you want to be is
back home and when youre
home, the only place you want to
be is back there, he says. I still
feel that way sometimes.
McCrumb, now a 25-year-old
divorced father, found work in a
steel factory in 2010, but almost
lost his left leg in a machine acci-
dent, sidelining him for a year.
He had joined the Marines to
follow in the footsteps of his fa-
ther and grandfather. But
McCrumb also had been inspired
to serve after the death of Rickey
Jones, his boyhood friend, Little
League teammate and a guy, he
says, was the life of every party.
Nearly six years have passed
since Jones death, but
McCrumb thinks of him often.
Every now and then, he puts on
his Marine dress blues and visits
his grave, bringing a beer.
When I go to the cemetery,
he says, its just me and him.
Thats it.
Economic reality
Like his friend, McCrumb, Ja-
son Vazquez is a third-generation
military man.
Two weeks out of high school
in 2002 and motivated by the
Sept. 11 attacks, Vazquez was in
boot camp at Great Lakes Naval
Station in Illinois.
Seven years later, the 28-year-
old father was home, trying to
find his footing as a civilian in a
nation reeling from a recession
and a town devastated by an auto
industry in steep decline. As
home to both Chrysler and Gen-
eral Motors, Kokomo was hem-
orrhaging jobs. Unemployment
briefly rocketed to around 20
percent.
Since then, the community has
rebounded with the auto bailout
and $1.4 billion in investments in
Kokomo in the last 18 months,
much of it from Chrysler.
But with the jobless rate ho-
vering at about 10 percent, its
still hard to find work for vets
such as Vazquez, who has devot-
ed most of his adult life to the
military.
As a Navy corpsman who treat-
ed wounded troops, Vazquez had
thrived in the pressure cooker of
war.
But back in Indiana, that expe-
rience wasnt good enough to
land a job as a firefighter, emer-
gency medical technician, ambu-
lance crew member or lab spe-
cialist drawing blood.
I thought that I was worth-
less, he says. I felt like no one
wanted me anymore after the
military.
It was especially crushing con-
sidering his quick decisions and
medical skills had helped save
lives on the battlefield.
I had a guy whose leg was
blown up and hes grabbing me,
saying, Doc, make sure I get
home. Or a guy whos burned
saying, Doc, I have trust in you
that Ill make it. I know you can
do it, he recalls. Id gone from
that to people saying you dont
have the credentials to put a
Band-Aid on someone.
Vazquez had always expected
his service would be a plus.
I had the assumption that its
a steppingstone, that Ill be finan-
cially set, Ill have training and
then I can get a job like that, he
says, snapping his fingers.
Thats everything Id heard in
high school You go into the
military and when you come out
people are going to respect you
so much more. Theyll put you
first in line. None of thats true.
The public, he adds, is happy
to shake your hand and say,
Thank you ... but when it comes
to them actually doing some-
thing for us ... it stops. If it takes
them putting us ahead of some-
body who has had college,
theyre not going to do that to
give us a job.
Vazquezs predicament isnt
unusual. About 11 percent of vet-
erans who served in the military
since Sept. 11, 2001, are unem-
ployed, according to recent fed-
eral statistics.
Last month, President Barack
Obama signed into law a mea-
sure that creates tax breaks for
companies that hire jobless vet-
erans.
Kokomo Mayor Greg Good-
night is sympathetic.
I think its a shame we ask
people to go out and put their
lives on the line and when they
come back, not only are there ve-
ry limited opportunities for the
majority of them ... but the debt
to pay for the war will fall on
their shoulders as well, he says.

Webby, a part-time public de-
fender, was in Polachek Gar-
tleys courtroom when the
mans case was called. Flora
said Webby objected to repre-
senting him, citing the policy.
Polachek Gartley said she un-
derstood his concerns, but di-
rected him to represent the
man and Webby complied.
She said Im directing you
to represent this person. At
that point he had to, Flora
said.
Flora said he has advised at-
torneys to respectfully object,
but they are to comply with a
judges directive if ordered to
represent a person. He said he
plans to speak to President
Judge Thomas Burke regard-
ing the matter, however.
In an interview earlier this
week, Flora indicated he might
file a lawsuit if judges repeated-
ly appoint public defenders to
represent persons over their
objections. He said that would
be a last resort as he hopes to
work with the incoming coun-
ty council to resolve staffing is-
sues that plague his office.
Burke on Thursday said he
met with several other judges
todiscuss the public defenders
policy. He said no firm conclu-
sion was reached. For the time
being each judge is going to
handle situations as they arise
on a case-by-case basis.
DEFENDER

House and Senate to pass a new
bill by Christmas that would re-
new the tax break while congres-
sional negotiatorsworkout aone-
year measure that would also ex-
tend jobless benefits for millions
of Americansandprevent doctors
fromabsorbing a big cut in Medi-
care payments.
In an emailed statement, U.S.
Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton,
praised the latest development.
I am gratified that the House
of Representatives agreed to pass
the overwhelmingly bipartisan
compromiseontaxcuts, hesaid.
I will continue to fight to ensure
that weextendtheseessential tax
cutsfor afull year toprotect work-
ingfamiliesandkeeptheeconom-
ic recovery moving.
The developments were a clear
win for Obama. The payroll tax
cut was the centerpiece of his
three-month campaign-style
drive for jobs legislation that
seems to have contributed to an
uptick in his poll numbers.
Becauseof this agreement, ev-
ery working American will keep
his or her tax cut -- about $1,000
for the average family, Obama
said in a statement.
If thecutshadexpiredassched-
uled, 160 million workers would
have seena 2 percentage point in-
creaseintheir Social Securitytax-
es. And up to 2 million people
without jobs for six months
would start losing unemploy-
ment benefits averaging $300 a
week.
The GOP retreat ends a tense
standoff in which Boehners
House Republicans came under
great pressure to agree to the
short-term extension passed by
the Senate on Saturday. The
speaker was initially open to the
idea, but rank and file Republi-
cans revolted and the House in-
stead insisted on immediate
talks.
The conflict arose after the
Senate, on a bipartisan vote,
passedlegislationlast weektoex-
tend for two months the payroll
tax cut, jobless benefits and doc-
tors Medicare fees that other-
wise would have been cut 27 per-
cent. The House had just days be-
fore passed a full-year extension
that includedaseries of conserva-
tive policy prescriptions unpalat-
able to Obama and congressional
Democrats.
Obama, Republicans and con-
gressional Democrats all said
they preferred a one-year exten-
sion but the politics of achieving
that eluded them. All pledged to
start working on that in January.
Has this place become so dys-
functional that even when we
agree to things we cant do it?
Obama asked. Enough is
enough..
The top Senate Republican,
Mitch McConnell of Kentucky,
was a driving force behind Thurs-
days agreement, imploring
Boehner to accept the deal that
McConnell and Senate Demo-
cratic Leader Harry Reid had
struck last week and passed with
overwhelming support in both
parties.
The breakthrough emerged as
a firewall erected by tea party-
backedHouse Republicans crum-
bled Thursday.
I dont think that my constitu-
ents should have a tax increase
because of Washingtons dysfunc-
tion, said freshman Rep. Sean
Duffy, R-Wis.
The Republican establish-
ment, too, put new pressure on
House Republicans to compro-
mise.

HARRISBURG A bill that
could mean expensive facility
and staff expansions for clinics
that perform abortions in Penn-
sylvania became state lawThurs-
day after a bitter fight in the Leg-
islature over how to respond to
grotesque conditions discovered
at a Philadelphia clinic last year.
Gov. Tom Corbett, a Republi-
can, signed the measure without
comment on an issue that has in-
flamed both opponents and sup-
porters of abortion rights.
The new standards take effect
in 180 days and would require
freestanding clinics that perform
abortions to comply with the
same safety standards as frees-
tanding outpatient surgery cen-
ters, which include requirements
for wider hallways anddoorways,
bigger operating rooms, full-time
nurses and more.
The law also requires one un-
announced inspection of each
abortion facility, a mandate that
abortion-rights supporters in the
Legislature had pressed as an al-
ternative to the tougher facility
standards that passed the Repub-
lican-majority Legislature.
Operators of abortion clinics
worry they will not be able to af-
ford the cost to comply with the
standards, andsay that muchwill
depend on how the state Depart-
ment of Health decides how to
apply them. Under the law, the
department also can waive the
standards.
(The) Department of Health
will accept licensure applications
for these facilities andwill handle
all applications on a case-by-case
basis as we do for any other
healthcarefacilityseekinglicens-
ure, agency spokeswoman
Christine Cronkright said.
Currently, 24 abortion facili-
ties are registered in Pennsylva-
nia, and hospitals may perform
abortions as part of their surgical
services program, Cronkright
said.
In the Philadelphia case, prose-
cutors say newborn babies were
killed in illegal, late-term abor-
tions performed inside a filthy,
now-shutteredhouseof horrors
run by Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who
employed workers who werent
properly trained or licensed to do
abortions.
His Womens Medical Society
has been shut down and Gosnell
has been charged with murder in
the deaths of seven babies and
one patient, as well as drug con-
spiracy and distribution in con-
nectionwithwhat authorities say
are thousands of illegal prescrip-
tions he wrote for painkillers and
sedatives. Gosnell has said he is
innocent.
House Health Committee
Chairman Matt Baker, R-Tioga,
said the legislation was neces-
sarytoavoidarepeat of what hap-
pened in Philadelphia, as well as
the discovery in May at Allen-
town Medical Services of instru-
ments considered unsterile and a
blood-splattered infectious waste
freezer.
No one should be subjected to
the conditions and treatment
that have occurred at these facil-
ities, Baker said in a statement
last week after the House ap-
proved the bill.
The Philadelphia grand jury
that investigated Gosnell said in
its report that the Health Depart-
ment had decided, for political
reasons, to stop inspecting abor-
tion clinics. The department
dropped its policy of annual in-
spections in the mid-1990s under
then-Gov. Tom Ridge, who sup-
ported abortion rights, the grand
jury said.

When your pipes have all burst and your basement is swimming
When your air conditioner is slowly dimming
When your sewer is blocked solid on a cold winters night
When your furnace has broken and refuses to light
You nd most of the big home repair centers are closed!
But your local plumbing, heating and cooling contractors
YOUR neighbors fromYOUR community are there for YOU when YOU
need them.
Tis holiday season, we salute those contractors who make life more
comfortable for all of us.
We need the insurance companies
to help these families.

The Democrat from Scranton commiserated earlier
this week with Luzerne County residents and others
still awaiting insurance checks to pay for property
damage sustained in Septembers flooding. An estimated one quarter of
claims have not yet been processed.
Thieves steal writers
spirit of the season
I
t is with a heavy heart that I am writing
this letter. I always have been a huge fan
of Christmas. I have enjoyed how nice
everyone seems to be at this special time
of year. Well, unfortunately, the Grinch
seems to have visited my home not once,
but twice, this year.
On Dec. 16, I was informed by my father
that he chased someone down the street
after seeing him steal my mail. The mail, I
have come to realize, contained a DVD I
had ordered as a Christmas present for my
daughter. Oh, well, I thought: Its annoy-
ing, but not that intolerable.
However, on Sunday morning on my
way out of the house to go to church, I
realized my illuminated manger set was
stolen from my front lawn!
I cant begin to tell you how upset I was.
Of all things to steal.
I am not a rich person; I bought the
manger set after the season two years ago
and was so proud to have it on display.
To the person or persons who have vio-
lated my mailbox and my front lawn,
please know you have stolen more than
items, you have stolen my faith in the
goodness of people. Merry Christmas.

Take time to remember
true meaning of holiday
W
hat do we remember about Christ-
mas past? For me, it was the old
Norelco razor commercial between
Santa Claus is Coming to Town or Ru-
dolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Strange
isnt it?
Or how about the loving, wonderful
times we had? Like popping in a Christmas
VCR tape and having the kids help to
string popcorn, so we could have garland
for the tree.
Or having my sister-in-law bring her
infant son over because he wouldnt sleep;
I would plug in my musical lights and fast
to dream land he would go, dreaming of
sugar plums. How can I tell? Just by the
way hed smile as he slept.
Sometimes were wrapped up in the
whole stress of Christmas and forget to
take time to remember exactly what made
us feel that great warmth Christmas would
bring.
I know there are some who have fallen
to the bottom of that barrel, who think no
one cares or that there is no hope. But,
remember this: Youre only kept down if
you want to be. I believe youre stronger
than that.
If I can get only one person who will
pick themselves up, dust themselves off
and remember back to a day when Christ-
mas gave you feelings of warmth, happi-
ness and love, then I have hope for and in
you!
Remember, your dreams are your future,
and some memories can be of a beautiful
past. I will pray for all. And may everyone
have a warm, loving Christmas filled with
hope and joy.

THE ANNUAL controversy
surrounding greetings for
this season, Merry Christ-
mas vs. Happy holidays,
is enough to make me say,
Bah, humbug!
Im in no way an Ebenezer
Scrooge, that mean-spirited tightwad in Char-
les Dickens 1843 classic A Christmas Carol.
But, seriously, Im tired of hearing it.
Those who suggest that it is somehow
disrespectful, anti-Christian or atheistic to
say Happy holidays or Seasons greetings
this time of year are being pretty petty and,
in some cases, very biased.
Individuals, retailers, corporations and
organizations that choose a non-specific
greeting are not trying to distance them-
selves from Jesus Christ, as some have
claimed.
In many cases they simply are taking into
account that there is more than one holiday
during this season, and some companies
find it less complicated and less expensive to
prepare advertising, marketing and signage
that will endure a long shopping season that
runs from before Thanksgiving to New
Years.
When I was in the radio/television busi-
ness years ago, our promotional spots tended
to use Happy holidays because it prevented
the necessity of having someone come in the
day after Christmas to re-record spots that
said Happy New Year.
Of course, there are other religions whose
holidays sometimes overlap with Christmas.
There are years when both Hanukkah
(Jewish) and Ramadan (Muslim) coincide
with the Christian observance of Jesus birth.
Boycotting stores that dont say Merry
Christmas in their advertising, or the berat-
ing of broadcasters and various celebrities
because they use the term Happy holidays,
are pathetic protests.
But, in America everyone has that right.
The hullabaloo over this issue is almost
nonsensical, considering that Christmas has
been so commercialized and distorted that
the true meaning for many was lost a long
time ago.
It is astounding that some of the same
people who were upset that Jesus was being
ignored by some department stores also were
irate that a few schools had banned Santa
from coming into classrooms.
What does Santa Claus have to do with
Jesus? Or did I miss the part of the Bible that
says, Behold, a child is born ... and his name
shall be called Santa, St. Nick, Kris Kringle
and a Jolly Old Fellow?
I dont mean to be cynical about this be-
cause I understand the irritation some feel
that too many Christians dont give proper
reverence to the day honoring the birth of the
one they call Savior.
To them it is sacrilege that there are those
who, to be politically correct, would avoid
uttering the word Christmas when greeting
people even if they are of other faiths.
Its not a matter of political correctness.
It is a demonstration of tolerance, a way to
be considerate of others and their religions.
In fact, it is being Christian.
People should do what is comfortable for
them.
Use whatever seasonal greeting is appro-
priate for you, and dont go out of the way to
criticize others for doing the same.
Be secure enough in your own faith that
you dont have to use Christmas as an excuse
to put down others because they worship
differently than you.
Respect them, no matter how you greet
them.
Besides, I dont think God is worried about
what words we say to each other, as long as
they are kind and heartfelt.
Why dont we let him be the judge of our
actions during this and every other season?
Happy holidays, everybody. And I truly
mean it.

COMMENTARY
B O B R A Y S A N D E R S
W
ITH ITS recom-
mendation that all
states should ban
drivers use of cell
phones, including hands-free
devices, the National Transpor-
tation Safety Board has estab-
lished the gold standard for
highway safety in the digital
age.
Its a move that no state has
yet made, and perhaps it wont
be seen as a realistic approach
for years even though some
European nations long ago
banned all calls by drivers.
Theres certainly no longer
any doubt that the statistical
evidence backs up the NTSBs
landmark ruling. And theres
thestarkfact that 3,000lives are
lost annually in highway crash-
es caused by distracted driving.
Safety experts have known
for years that talking on a cell-
phone is akin to driving drunk,
often with predictable results.
Drivers risk of a serious acci-
dent increases fourfold when
the call goes through, and ex-
perts say a hands-free device
doesnt reduce the distraction
of holding a phone conversa-
tion.
While the experts are con-
vinced of the risks, clearly, vast
numbers of the driving public
are not. Surveys show that
more thanhalf of drivers talkon
their phones, while one in five
dangerously sends text messag-
es from behind the wheel.
That shows the needfor grea-
ter public-awareness programs
about the dangers of these dis-
tractions, andthe NTSBs latest
safetyadviceshouldbeapower-
ful tool.

OTHER OPINION: DRIVING/PHONING
Keep both hands

A
FTER THE clamor of
Christmas morning,
many area households
practically sag under a
crush of wrapping paper, card-
board and other holiday debris.
Why not give the planet a gift
and adopt ways to make merry
each season while also reducing
the volume of castoff stuff you
carry to the curb as trash?
A quick Internet search re-
veals alternative gift-wrapping
tips such as the ones listed be-
low. Not all of these techniques
are likely to earn Martha Stew-
arts approval, but unless the
homedcor divais onyour guest
list, who cares?
Opt for reusable gift bags
(with holiday themes) or reusa-
ble shopping bags (the neutral
sort that can be used all year
through).
Make custom gift wrap
from magazine covers, travel
maps, childrens art projects, last
years greeting cards or assorted
fabric pieces. Our preference:
Newspaper comics pages. (Lat-
er, simply remove the tape and
recycle).
Multiply the gift by wrap-
pingit witha seconditem: a new
baby blanket or scarf, or a bath,
hand or beach towel.
Choose an untraditional
container: claypot, wateringcan,
stockpot or mixing bowl.
For package filler, use those
paper scraps from the home of-
fice paper shredder.
ConsideringtheWyomingVal-
leys shameful history when it
comes to safeguarding the envi-
ronment, its hightimethat more
people paid attention to how
their everyday choices impact
the world around them. Limit
what gets trucked to landfills.
Definitelydont illegallydumpor
burn your unwanted items. Do-
nateusablehouseholdgoodsand
gently used clothing to local
charities.
Likewise, take advantage of
special, community-wide recy-
cling programs when theyre of-
fered. In recent years, for exam-
ple, Luzerne Countys Solid
Waste Management Depart-
ment has scheduled drop-off
days for county residents torecy-
cle used tires and electronic de-
vices. Similarly, your unwanted
telephone books can be taken to
one of several sites betweennow
and Jan. 12. (See accompanying
list.)
Traditionally, people have
yearned for a white Christmas;
but, for many reasons, you
shouldtry to keep yours green.
OUR OPINION: THINK GREEN
Merry Christmas
to Mother Earth
Telephone books can be recy-
cled at a dozen Luzerne County
locations until Jan. 12, according
to information provided by the
countys Solid Waste Manage-
ment Department.

gence and questioning the applicants,
but all the information about employ-
ment terms and background checks will
be factored into the final decision,
McGinley said.
Councils decision
While the transition committee is in-
volved in the recommendation, the
choices of the council-elect members
are tracked separately because council
will ultimately make the selection.
At least seven of 11 council votes are
required to hire the manager. Council-
men-elect Stephen A. Urban, an outgo-
ing commissioner, had applied for the
manager position, so Urban and his son,
Councilman-elect Stephen J. Urban,
have not been participating in the man-
ager selection process.
The transition committee hasnt pub-
licly released the names of the manager
applicants, but Urban was not among
the five interviewed because they all
currently reside in other states.
Transition committee member Jim
Haggerty, a charter drafter, said all five
interviewees are extremely, highly
qualified based on their education and
experience.
In addition to the required bachelors
degree, each of the five have one of the
following: masters in political science
with executive certifications as a senior
county executive; significant credits to-
ward both an MBAand masters in man-
agement; masters in public administra-
tion; an MBA; masters in public and hu-
man resource management.
All five have at least 20 years of gov-
ernment experience, Haggerty said.
The five, all men, expressed genuine ex-
citement about the opportunity to help
establish a new home rule government,
he said.
Whichever one gets hired, our coun-
ty will be fortunate. It will be a big step
forward for the county to have a nation-
al professional municipal manager com-
ing here to try to address our issues, he
said.
Haggerty said the council-elect ap-
pears ready to reach a consensus before
Jan. 2. Charter drafters involved the
council-elect in the transition hoping
they wouldnt have to start a manager
selection fromscratch on Jan. 2, he said.
Key responsibilities
In addition to handling day-to-day op-
erations, the manager is instrumental in
budget planning, the approval of codes
and selection of division heads.
All five interviewees said they would
be able to start work some time in Janu-
ary, Haggerty said.
We put the interim manager option
in as a fail-safe, but the council-elect is
in a position to pick a top national appli-
cant to run our county before December
is over, Haggerty said.
A written contract or employment
agreement must be hammered out with
the manager outlining compensation,
benefits and severance pay, committee
members said. Such contracts are stan-
dard for professional government man-
agers and school superintendents,
though the concept is new in Luzerne
County government.
The council always has the right to
terminate a manager with seven votes,
but a contractual severance for a still-to-
be-negotiated time period provides a
form of financial protection for manag-
ers who agree to relocate here, Hagger-
ty said.
Theres a cost of firing the manager
with the severance, so if council is going
to fire a manager and incur the expense
of severance, it should really have a
good justification for it, Haggerty said.
Councilman-elect Rick Morelli said
contracts also help protect managers
from politics.
If youre expecting to get a quality
person to come in from the outside, no-
body is going to move their family
across the country to Luzerne County
without some job security, Morelli
said. Well have to negotiate a fair con-
tract for both the county and the man-
ager.

minority Sunnis.
The conditions that perpetu-
ate civil wars are making a hasty
comeback, said Ramzy Mardini,
an analyst at the Institute for the
Study of War in Washington.
The bombings may be linked
more to the withdrawal of the
last U.S. troops Sunday than the
political crisis, but all together
the developments raise the spec-
ter of a return to the Shiite-Sunni
sectarian bloodshed that pushed
Iraq to the brink of civil war in
2006 and 2007.
Al-Maliki is engaged in a show-
downwiththe top Sunni political
leader in the country. His govern-
ment has issued an arrest war-
rant for Sunni Vice President Ta-
riqal-Hashemi for what al-Hashe-
mi says are trumped-up charges
that he ran hit squads against
government officials.
That has thrownIraqs political
community into a crisis, with
Sunnis suspicious that al-Maliki
is making a power grab in the
wake of the American military
departure.
Thrown into this already heat-
edmixture was some of the worst
violence Iraq has seen this year.
At least 16 blasts went off
across Baghdad, killing 69 peo-
ple and wounding nearly 200
more. Most exploded in the
morning but at least two struck
Thursday evening.
The deadliest attack was in the
Karrada neighborhood, where a
suicide bomber driving an explo-
sives-laden vehicle blew himself
up outside a government office.
Two police officers at the scene
said the bomber was driving an
ambulance and told guards that
he needed to get to a nearby hos-
pital. After the guards let him
through, he drove to the building
and blew himself up, the officers
said.
I was sleepinginmy bedwhen
the explosionhappened, said12-
year-old Hussain Abbas, stand-
ing in his pajamas. I jumped
from my bed and rushed to my
moms lap. I told her I did not
want to go to school today. Im
terrified.
In Washington, the White
House condemned the bombings
and said attempts to derail pro-
gress in Iraq will fail. Press secre-
tary Jay Carney said the attacks
serve no agenda other than mur-
der and hatred.
Vice President Joe Biden, Pres-
ident Barack Obamas point man
on Iraq, called President Jalal Ta-
labani to discuss the situation. It
was Bidens second round of
phone calls to Iraqi officials this
week.
Gen. Ray Odierno, the U.S. Ar-
my chief of staff, also visited
Baghdad on Thursday in what
was described as a trip arranged
before the political crisis erupt-
ed.
It was exactly this type of vio-
lence in the early days after the
U.S.-led invasion that eventually
spiraled into a near-civil war.
Sunni militants such as al-Qaida
saw Iraq as their battleground
against first the U.S. and then
Shiites, whom they do not con-
sider as true Muslims.
Shiite militias, fired up by
years of anger over repressionun-
der Saddam Husseins Sunni-
dominated regime, then fought
backinwhat eventually became a
tit-for-tat battle fought mainly
across Baghdad. A bombing
against a Shiite neighborhood
would be answered by residents
of a Sunni neighborhood being
dragged out and shot.
Thats the type of reaction that
analysts say al-Qaida is trying to
spark with violence such as
Thursdays blasts. There was no
immediate claim of responsibili-
ty, but the bombings bore all the
hallmarks of al-Qaidas Sunni in-
surgents: a mixof sticky bombs, a
suicide bomber, roadside blasts
and car bombs.
Al-Qaida in Iraq is severely de-
bilitated from its strength in the
early years of the war, but still has
the capability to launch coordi-
nated and deadly assaults from
time to time. U.S. military offi-
cials worried about a resurgence
of al-Qaida after their departure.
If Sunnis feel invested in the
political process and see that
they have a future within it, anal-
ysts say its unlikely that al-Qaida
and its ilk could gain much trac-
tion within the wider Sunni com-
munity, especially after the
bloodbath that Iraqis have al-
ready endured and are not eager
to repeat.

STATE COLLEGE Penn
State may still be without a re-
placement for fired coach Joe Pa-
terno by the time the Nittany Li-
ons play in the TicketCity Bowl
on Jan. 2
The six-person search commit-
tee is taking a
very deliber-
ate and mea-
sured approach
to the process
inorder to iden-
tify the coach
that best fits
the require-
ments of the po-
sition, acting athletic director
Dave Joyner said Thursday in a
written statement.
School president Rodney Er-
ickson and Joyner had both said
they hoped to have a new coach
before No. 24 Penn States bowl
game.
But Thursday, Joyner said a
new coach would be introduced
at the appropriate time, andthe
statement offered no specific
timeline.
Erickson was out of town
Thursday for the holidays.
Spokesman Bill Mahon said
Joyner was providing Erickson
with regular updates.
I think they have both empha-
sized the most important ele-
ment here is to get the right
coach, not speed up the timing of
the search, Mahon said. There
is no update on possible timing.
Longtime defensive coordina-
tor Tom Bradley has been run-
ning the program on an interim
basis since school trustees fired
Paterno on Nov. 9 in the after-
math of child sex abuse charges
against retired defensive coordi-
nator Jerry Sandusky.
Paterno is not a target of the
Sandusky case by the state attor-
ney generals office, though he
was dismissed amid mounting
criticism that school leaders
should have done more to pre-
vent alleged abuse. Sandusky,
who has maintained his inno-
cence, is awaiting trial.
Making a good hire, and soon,
is generally seen as a critical step
to secure the future of Penn
States storied football program.

After being shut out on the
Class 3A and A all-state teams,
the Wyoming Valley Conference
had a better outing Thursday.
GAR landed four players on
the Pennsylvania Sports Writers
All-State Class 2A team, includ-
ing quarterback/defensive back
Darrell Crawford for a second
time. Former Wyoming Valley
West standout Eugene Lewis
earned a spot on the Class 4A
squad. Lewis was a second-team
pick in 2010. No second-team
all-state was selected this year.
Crawford was chosen as an of-
fensive specialist. He is joined
by senior defensive back Shaliek
Powell, junior offensive lineman
Christian Skrepenak and junior
defensive lineman Shakir Soto.
Lewis was named as an offen-
sive specialist.
Its just a tremendous feel-
ing, GAR coach Paul Wiedlich
Jr. said. Im proud of all four
kids. Its a testament to the kids
dedication and work ethic. It
shows good things happen
when you work hard and are
part of a program thats been
successful the past five, six, sev-
en years.
Crawford finished his career
with over 4,000
yards rushing.
In nine regular-
season games,
he rushed for
1,308 yards and
24 touch-
downs, threw
nine touch-
down passes, returned four
punts and two kickoffs for
touchdowns and returned an in-
terception for a touchdown. The
5-foot-9, 165-pounder has drawn
interest from Pittsburgh, Tem-
ple, Lafayette and Lehigh as a
defensive back and slot receiver.
Lewis, who has verbally com-
mitted to Penn State, rushed for
1,410 yards and a WVC-high 27
touchdowns. He also threw for
over 1,000 yards, marking the
second time in his career he
passed and rushed for 1,000
yards each in a season.
Crawford and Lewis are also

NANTICOKEWhen Syd-
ney Myers transferred to Crest-
wood, the Comets instantly be-
came a strong contender for the
District 2, Class 3A title.
Theres a good chance that to
accomplish that goal, the
Comets will have get past Nan-
ticoke in the playoffs.
With that it mind, Nanticoke
gave Myers all of the respect
they could
muster on
Thursday
night. The Tro-
janettes built a
wall around
the 6-foot ju-
nior center
triple teaming her every time
she touched the ball.
And it paid big dividends.
Nanticokes swarming de-
fense in the paint resulted in a
hard-fought 53-47 victory over
the Comets in a battle of two of
the Wyoming Valley Confer-
ences elite teams.
It was tough coming off our
first loss, but we all were deter-
mined not to let it happen
again, said Nanticoke junior
forward Brittany Sugalski, re-
ferring to Nanticokes loss to

SYRACUSE, N.Y. Bobby Da-
vis was a basketball-crazy teen
who was handed a virtual all-ac-
cess pass to the world of big-time
college hoops by Syracuse assist-
ant coach Bernie Fine. As a ball
boy for Hall of Famer Jim Boe-
heims squad during the 1980s,
Davis heardhalftimelocker-room
tirades fromthe legendary coach,
took shots at practice, sat court-
side, hit the roadandate nice din-
ners.
Davis, now39andtheprimeac-
cuser in the sexual abuse scandal
at Syracuse University, says the
indebtedness he felt toward Fine
made it hard to break from the
man he claims molested him
throughout his teens and into his
late 20s.
I wanted to be around basket-
ball sobad,Davissaidinaninter-
viewwithThe AssociatedPress.
As I got ol-
der, I under-
stoodmore that
Bernie had this
power. You al-
most feel its
like a cult in a
sense. Youdont
know how to
get away, he said. And as more
and more time went on, you feel
indebted to him. You feel like you
owe him. Hed always remind me
of all the good things he did for
me: Imthefirstonewhogotyoua

Thursday.

Cooper Rosiak fromLackawanna Trail tries to pin Chris Jones of Hanover Area during their 145-
pound bout on Thursday.
The Times Leader staff
concentrated on Myers and we
played great defense. Sugalski
and senior forward Katie Wolfe
swarmed Myers every time she
tried to put the ball on the floor.
Myers finished with 11 points,
but the Trojanettes defense was
able to cause her to miss several
shots in the fourth quarter.
Myers is a great player and is
a serious presence inside, said
Nanticoke coach Alan Yendr-
zeiwski. I thought Sugalski and
Wolfe played very tough defense
against her.
Nanticoke (4-1) held a 29-26
lead at halftime, but the Troja-
nettes threatened to take con-
trol 45-35 lead on a free throw
by Wolfe with 4:16 remaining in
the game.
However, the Comets (3-2)
countered with a late surge,
trimming the lead to 47-41 on a
three-point basket by Deidra
Ciavarella at the 2:15 mark. The
Comets made a last gasp by
drawing to within 49-45 on a
basket by Myers with 30 sec-
onds left.
Nanticoke sealed the deal
when junior forward Kayley
Schinski hit a layup on a back-
door play, giving the Trojanettes
a 51-45 lead with just 18 seconds
remaining.
We guarded the post very
well, said Schinski, who scored
eight points. We overplayed
them, and it worked.
Alex Brassington paced Nanti-
coke with 11 points, and Sugal-
ski scored 10 points. Teresa
Kalinay had eight points, in-
cluding a pair of three point
baskets, while Wolfe finished
with seven points.
We did a good job of boxing
out, especially against Myers,
said Wolfe of the transfer from
Holy Redeemer. It was a very
physical game.
According to Andrews, Crest-
wood battled hard, but to no
avail. We didnt really execute
our offense.
Coach Isiah Walker con-
curred.
Our spacing wasnt good,
and they played strong defense.

SANTA ANA, Calif. Show
me the money indeed: A bench
warrant has been authorized for
the sports agent who was the in-
spirationfor the movie JerryMa-
guire after he failed to appear in
court in a case involving a $1.4
million debt.
An Orange County Superior
Court commissioner authorized
the warrant after LeighSteinberg
failed to attend court last week,
court records show.
Court papers show Steinberg
was ordered to pay $1.4 million
last year to the Irvine Company
in a default judgment for office
space he leased in Newport
Beach. Steinberg stopped paying
under the terms of his lease in
2009, according to court papers
filed by the landlord, which de-
clined to comment on the case.
Steinberg was the inspiration
for Tom Cruises character in
1996s Jerry Maguire, which
turned Showme the money! in-
to an enduring catchphrase,
though Steinberg isnt actually
known for using that phrase.
Steinberg said hes not hiding
or running from the law. He said
he has an office open for business
inIrvine andthousands of friends
on Facebook and followers on
Twitter.
The 62-year-old agent said hes
still representing athletes and
acting as a consultant on projects
related to sports in movies, tele-
vision and video games.
Steinberg saidhe hadaskedhis
attorney to change the date of his
Dec. 15 hearing and was told it
was taken care of. Steinberg said
he was unaware of any warrant in
the case, which stems fromsome
payments he missed in 2009 be-
fore moving to less expensive of-
fice space.
Since when in this country do
you put people in jail for having
debt? he said in a phone inter-
view Thursday. The point is, I
had some financial struggles,
which I regret. And I amworking
hard right now to pay the debts I
owe.
The warrant was authorizedby
Superior Court Commissioner
Jane D. Myers. The court would
need to receive instructions and
fees from the plaintiff, the Irvine
Company, for the warrant to be-
come effective.

NEWYORKBrandon Du-
binsky scored his first goal in
more than a month, Marian
Gaborik moved into a tie for the
NHLlead with his 20th, and
Martin Biron was solid in net to
lead the NewYork Rangers to a
4-2 victory over the NewYork
Islanders on Thursday night.
Dubinsky staked the Rangers
to a1-0 lead in the first period,
scoring for the first time in17
games dating to Nov. 11
and Gaborik and Michael Del
Zotto connected in the second
for NewYork, which has won
three straight. The Rangers got
off to a good start in their back-
to-back games against Atlantic
Division rivals, and will look to
complete the sweep Friday when
they host Winter Classic foe
Philadelphia in a matchup for
first place.
Biron stopped 24 shots, as he
gave No. 1goalie Henrik Lundq-
vist a break, and earned an assist
on Dubinskys second goal of the
season. The Rangers are 5-2-1in
their past eight games. John
Mitchell scored an empty-net
goal with1:33 remaining to seal
it.
P.A. Parenteau got the Islan-
ders even at 1with a power-play
goal just 18 seconds into the
second period, and Matt Moul-
son added a man-advantage goal
8:29 into the third, but it wasnt
enough to give themtheir third
straight road win. The Islanders,
who won their previous two
games in a shootout, will host
Toronto on Friday and then
return to Madison Square Gar-
den on Monday to face the Rang-
ers again.
Evgeni Nabokov filled in for
injured Al Montoya (concussion)
and made 21saves for the Islan-
ders, who were 5-1-1in their
previous seven road games.
Montoya played in11of the
previous 12 games, but was in-
jured at Winnipeg on Tuesday.
Nabokov got the win then in
relief.
Dubinsky finally broke his
long drought with an impressive
rush up ice. He got by Parenteau
at center ice and then charged
into the Islanders end against
defenseman Mark Streit. Dubin-
sky snapped a shot fromthe
right side that beat Nabokov
over his pad with 5:07 left in the
first.
Dubinsky shook his fists in
delight and gazed up in a sigh of
relief as his excited teammates
patted himon the back. The well
wishes continued on the bench,
where Dubinsky sat wearing a
wide smile.
The Islanders took advantage
of defenseman Ryan McDo-
naghs holding penalty that came
in the final minute of the first
period, when Parenteau got to a
rebound of Streits shot and
scored his sixth goal.
The Rangers got that one back
and then increased their lead to
two when Gaborik and Del Zotto
scored 7:33 apart.
Gaborik was the beneficiary of
a fine play by linemate Artem
Anisimov, who won a faceoff in
the offensive zone left circle,
pushed the puck in front and
then moved it in front of the
crease to Gaborik, who back-
handed in his 20th goal at 7:52.
Del Zotto made it 3-1with 4:35
left in the second when he got to
a loose puck that had popped
high in the air and fired in a shot
for his fourth of the season.
The goal was even more im-
portant for the Rangers, who
improved to17-0-1when they
score at least three times this
season.
Moulson brought the Islan-
ders within 3-2 when he scored
his 16th of the season while
Rangers defenseman Stu Bickel
served a double minor for rough-
ing.
Maple Leafs 3, Sabres 2
TORONTONazemKadri
scored the tiebreaking goal in
the third period, lifting the To-
ronto Maple Leafs to a victory
over the Buffalo Sabres.
David Steckel and Phil Kessel
also scored for Toronto and
James Reimer had 40 saves.
Kadri, recalled fromToronto
of the AHLon Wednesday after a
22-game stint in the minors, got
his first goal of the season when
he scored off Buffalo goalie Ryan
Millers glove at 5:52 of the third.
Jason Pominville and Derek
Roy scored for the Sabres.
Senators 4, Panthers 3
OTTAWABobby Butler
scored 2:02 into overtime and
the Ottawa Senators beat the
Florida Panthers for their third
straight win.
Daniel Alfredsson scored his
399th goal and had two assists
for Ottawa, which gave up leads
of 1-0, 2-1, and 3-2. Chris Neil and
Erik Karlsson each had a goal
and an assist, and Craig An-
derson made 32 saves.
Tomas Kopecky drewFlorida
even at 3 when he scored the
tying goal with1:12 left in the
third and goalie Scott Clem-
mensen pulled for an extra at-
tacker. Kris Versteeg passed
frombehind the net to Kopecky,
who beat Anderson fromthe
goalmouth as the Panthers
erased their third one-goal def-
icit. Michal Repik and Shawn
Matthias also scored for Florida.
Predators 6, Blue Jackets 5
NASHVILLE, Tenn. Martin
Erat scored with 8.4 seconds
remaining to give the Nashville
Predators a 6-5 comeback victory
over the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Mike Fisher, Patric Hornqvist,
Nick Spaling, Roman Josi, and
David Legwand also scored for
Nashville, which has won six of
its last seven.
Jeff Carter had a hat trick in
the first period and Ryan Johan-
sen had the other two goals for
the Blue Jackets, who have lost
four straight.
The Predators trailed 5-2
midway about 8 minutes into the
second period before scoring the
games last four goals. Spaling
and Josis goals pulled the Preda-
tors within one less than six
minutes later, and Legwands
power-play score with 3:46 to go
in the third tied it.

Jazz trade C Okur to Nets for 2nd-round pick
SALT LAKE CITY The Utah Jazz traded All-Star center Mehmet
Okur to the New Jersey Nets on Thursday for a second-round draft
pick.
The 6-foot-11 Okur is in his 10th year and was to earn $10.8 million
this season in the final year of his contract.
The Nets needed another big man after learning Brook Lopez
was out until at least February from surgery to repair a stress
fracture in his right foot.
Mehmet will give us added scoring and size, Nets general
manager Billy King said in a statement. His ability to shoot the 3
will help space the floor.

Erickson said earlier this
month one of the top criteria in

person would fit into the value
system of Penn State, which
clearly has to be honesty, integ-
rity and commitment to excel-
lence in academics.
According to Joyner, the
school is continuing to talk
withindividuals that wereinter-
ested in and work through the
interview process. He called it
a very important hire for Penn
State.
Bradley and defensive line
coach Larry Johnson are among
those who have been inter-
viewed.
Green Bay quarterbacks

uled to have a phone interview
last week, USA Today has re-

Thursday, Clements declined

not confirm if he had inter-
viewed for it.
Nebraskas Bo Pelini also
emerged this week on the seem-
ingly endless rumored list of po-

Pelini after practice Tuesday
called the reports irresponsible
and untrue, and said he had not
interviewed at Penn State.

PITTSBURGHPaul Chryst
turned Wisconsins historically
ho-hum offense into a high-pow-
ered attack that lit up score-
boards across the Big Ten.
Pittsburgh would love to see
him do the same with the Pan-
thers, but only after he provides
the beleaguered program with
some much-neededstability.
The school hired Chryst on
Thursday to replace Todd Gra-
ham, who bolted for Arizona
State last week after less than a
year onthe job.
The46-year-oldChryst is Pitts
fourth head coach in the last 13
months, following Dave Wann-
stedt, Mike Haywood and Gra-
ham, who left for the Sun Devils
following a disappointing 6-6
season.
Pitt is hoping Chryst, who
spent seven seasons as offensive
coordinator at his alma mater,
sticksaroundmuchlonger. Inad-
dition to the seemingly endless
coachingchaos, the Panthers are
leaving the Big East for the ACC
by 2014.
We believed it was important
tofinda leader whogets the very
best from his players while also
developing the kind of culture
that fits the University of Pitts-
burgh,Pittsburghathleticdirec-
tor Steve Pederson said. Paul
Chryst is that leader.
Chryst molded No. 9 Wiscon-
sin(11-2)intoanoffensivepower-
house since joining the program
in 2005, and may have done his
best jobthisseason. TheBadgers
ranked fourth in the nation in
scoring, averaging 44.6 points
whilewinningtheBigTencham-
pionship and earning a Rose
Bowl berth.
Its uncertain whether Chryst
will stayonatWisconsinthrough
the bowl game or join his new
team immediately. Pitt plays
SMUintheBBVACompassBowl
on Jan. 7, with Keith Patterson
serving as interimcoach.
When he starts hardly mat-
tered to Chryst on Thursday as
he met with his new players and
toured the teams practice facili-
ty withhis family.
Pitt and Pittsburgh are abso-
lutely the right fit for us, and
were looking forward to getting
immersed in our new home-
town, Chryst said. We are com-
mitted to building a program on
and off the field that will make
people proud.
Words of comfort to a fan base
still reelingfromGrahamsgrace-
less departure after 338 days at
the helm. Graham resigned sud-
denly a week ago when Pitt de-
nied him permission to talk to
Arizona State, alerting his play-
ersviaforwardedtext messageof
his decisionto leave.
The Panthers lashed out at
Graham in the aftermath, with
wide receiver Devin Street call-
ing his former coach a liar
throughhis Twitter feed.
There appear to be no such is-
sues with Chryst, with Street
tweeting hed be very happy if
Chryst brought his offensive fire-
works to Pitt.
Chryst will be introduced on
Thursday afternoon, ending an
eight-daysearchfor Grahams re-
placement. Contract terms were
not immediately available, but
he beat out Florida International
coach Mario Cristobal and inter-
imOhioStatecoachLukeFickell
for the job.
Its one the Panthers hope
Chryst will hold onto as the
school prepares to join Syracuse
in leaving the Big East for the
ACCsometime in the next three
seasons.
Graham said repeatedly over
thelast11monthshewaslooking
forward to the challenge, con-
stantly preaching character,
commitmentandahighoctane
offense designed to take the Big
East by storm.
It never happened as the Pan-
thers struggled adapting from
Wannstedts pro-style approach
to Grahams modified spread at-
tack. Pitt allowed 57 sacks this
season, easily the most in the
FBS, and Grahamdrewthe ire of
the fan base for shifting blame
fromhimself toquarterbackTino
Sunseri.
The growing pains led to a
wildly uneven season in which
the Panthers let winnable games
slip away. Pitt held double-digit
second-half leads over Iowa, Cin-
cinnati and rival West Virginia
only to collapse in the final min-
utes.

Leader All-WVC team will be
released on Christmas day.
Powell had four intercep-
tions and forced five fumbles.
On offense, he caught 32 pas-
ses for eight touchdowns to
lead WVC Division 2A-A in
both categories. His 611 receiv-
ing yards was best in the entire
conference. He has an offer
from Prairie View A&M.
Shaliek is known as a defen-
sive back, Wiedich said, but I
think his offensive numbers
helped him a lot.
Soto made a team-high 114
tackles and nine sacks. He also
returned an interception for a
touchdown and blocked a
punt. The 6-3, 230-pounder has
been drawing significant Divi-
sion I interest and was a side-
line guest of Penn State a few
times this season.
Hes just a workaholic,
Wiedlich said. We set the bar
high for all our kids, but Shakir
sets the bar high for himself.
Skrepenak improved his play
significantly from his sopho-
more year. At 6-9, 350 pounds,
he was the biggest player in
the WVC. His size and blood-
lines his father Greg was a
college All-American at Michi-
gan and played in the NFL
have many major Division I
programs inquiring about him.
Offensively, Christian had a
good year, Wiedlich said. You
cant find too many 6-9 guys
around. He knows he has to
work on his footwork. He
knows he has some work to do
to reach his potential and get
to the next level.

sity and Boeheim, who initially
called Davis a liar and opportun-
ist looking to cash in on the pub-
licity surrounding the Penn State
sex abuse scandal.
Finehasdeniedtheallegations.
He has not spoken publicly in the
month since the allegations were
raised, andhislawyersdeclinedto
comment Thursday.
During an interview Wednes-
day night with the AP, Davis said
the abuse would sometimes oc-
cur in Fines campus office with
secretaries just beyondtheclosed
door, in Fines home, at Syracuse
Universitybasketball campandat
a fraternity house. After he be-
cameaball boyaroundage11, Da-
vis said, hewent everywherewith
Fine. He fetchedcookies for news
conferences and shadowed the
team.
I was in there during halftime
speeches when Boeheim was
kicking over chalkboards and
screaming and swearing, Davis
said. Iwaspartof everythingfora
long time. Hes (Boeheim) seen
me everywhere.
Davis claimthat he was always
hanging around is crucial to his
defamation lawsuit, which con-
tends Boeheim knew or should
have known about the alleged
conduct of his assistant.
Davis said Boeheim saw him
loungingonFineshotel roombed
in NewOrleans in shorts and a T-
shirt during the 1987 Final Four.
He said Fine had gotten up to an-
swer the door and was exchang-
ing some paperwork when Boe-
heimspiedhim.
I just remember him... kind of
itching his head and looking,
glancing at me, and I just felt like
anuneasiness, anuncomfortable-
ness, Davis said.
Boeheim has denied going to
Fines roomor seeingDavis there.
Davis and Lang went public
with their allegations on ESPN
last month. District AttorneyWil-
liam Fitzpatrick said earlier this
month that Davis was credible,
but he couldnt investigate under
state law because the statute of
limitations had expired. Two oth-
er men, Zach Tomaselli of Lewis-
ton, Maine, andFloydVanHooser,
whoisinprisononaburglarycon-
viction, have also accused Fine,
though Fitzpatrick has said that
there is evidence that undercuts
Tomasellis claim and that a
fourthaccuserhedidnot identi-
fy lackedcredibility.
Federal prosecutors areinvesti-
gating.
Boeheim, in his 36th year
coaching Syracuse, vehemently
supported his longtime assistant
when the accusations broke and
said Davis was lying. The Penn
State thing came out, and the kid
behind this is trying to get mon-
ey, he told the Syracuse Post-
Standard.
Amid criticism from victims
rights advocates, Boeheim later
apologized and said he spoke out
of loyaltyandwas basinghis com-
ments on a 2005 university inves-
tigationthat failedtocorroborate
Davis claims.
Davis met Fine in the early
1980s at a park that was a basket-
ball hangout for neighborhood
kids in a working-class section of
the city.
I was upat Sunnycrest playing
and Bernie was up there playing,
andhegot meonhis team, Davis
said. They never would let me
play because I was young. And he
goes, Oh, you can play with me.
... And Bernie was a big guy and
they respected himup there. I re-
member he was actually pretty
good.
Afterward, Fine invited him
over for a barbecue dinner with
others.
Davis said Fine began abusing
himaround the time he became a
ball boyin1983. Fineturnedintoa
father figure, and as Davis spent
more time at the older mans
house actually living there
sometimestheabuseescalated
from touching outside the pants
to inside, according to Davis.
Some of the abuse wouldoccur in
Davis bed in Fines basement
while Fines wife, Laurie, was
home, Davis said. During the
summerorholidaybreaksat Syra-
cuse, FineandDaviswouldstopat
the house of the fraternity he ad-
vised, Davis claimed.
He would always say, Bobby,
come in here. Come in this room.
Imup here. And Id be like, OK,
andI knewwhat wasgoingtohap-
pen. He was going to try to do
something, Davis said.

ST. LOUIS Carlos Beltran
and the World Series champion
St. Louis Cardinals agreed to a
two-year contract pending re-
sults of a physical, a move that
would fortify the teams lineup
following the departure of Albert
Pujols.
The team disclosed the agree-
ment Thursday night and said it
expects tomakeaformal announ-
cement shortlyafter theholidays.
KMOX, the Cardinals flagship
radio station,
reported the
deal is for $26
million over
two years
the same figure
cited by a per-
son familiar
with the nego-
tiations whospoketoTheAssoci-
ated Press. The person spoke on
condition of anonymity because
financial details of the agreement
were not announcedby the team.
The 34-year-old Beltran batted
.300 with 22 home runs, 84 RBIs
anda .385 on-base percentage for
the NewYork Mets andSanFran-
cisco Giants this year. He likely
will be the opening-day right fiel-
der for theCardinals next season.
Lance Berkman is expected to
move to first base, taking Pujols
spot.
Allen Craig, coming off an im-
pressive postseason, gives the
Cardinals another strongoutfield
option but will miss at least the
first month while recovering
fromknee surgery.
A six-time All-Star, Beltran be-
ganhiscareerwiththecross-state
Royals in 1998, three years after
Kansas City drafted him in the
second round. The switch-hitter
has a .283 career batting average
with 302 home runs and 1,146
RBIs.
Beltran is a proven outfielder
who obviously has been a tough
opponent against the Cardinals
for manyyears, St. Louis general
manager John Mozeliak said in a
statement. It is going to be nice
to have his bat and competitive
nature working for us instead of
on the other side of the field for
the next couple of years.

Racing and owner James Finch.
Busch told The Associated
Press that the deal was finalized
late Wednesday night over a few

HONOLULU After five
schools, four decades and three
national championships, Norm
Chows career has come full cir-
cle.
A tearful Chow was intro-
duced Thursday as the new
coach of Hawaii in an emotional
news conference surrounded by
old friends, including a high
school teammate.
Im honored, Im humbled
and Im awfully excited to be
here to stand before you as the
next football coach of the Uni-
versity of Hawaii Rainbow War-
riors, Chowsaid, usingthe mas-
cot name that was shed more
than a decade ago under former
coach June Jones.
The 65-year-old Chow was
born and raised in Honolulu and
got his coaching start in the is-
lands. Today, Chow is being
looked upon to revive the strug-
gling Warriors football program
that failed to make the postsea-
son this year.
How many people are fortu-
nate enough to go full circle? Im
blessed. Im honored. I know
that, he said. I say my prayers
every morning and Im grateful
for that. I started at Waialua
High School in1970 and to have
this chance to come back home
all these years later is just a treat.
Its a privilege and Im never go-
ing to ever forget that.
Chow has become an instant
islandiconinthis football crazed
state with no professional team
sports. He was scheduled to at-
tend a reception hosted by Gov.
Neil Abercrombie on Thursday
night before returning to Utah,
where he is in his first season as
offensive coordinator. The Utes
are preparing to face Georgia
Tech in the Sun Bowl.
He previously served as offen-
sive coordinator at UCLA, for
the Tennessee Titans, at South-
ern California, North Carolina
State and Brigham Young, help-
ing to develop four Heisman
Trophy winners.

Oil prices expected to rise
Crude oil may rise for a fourth year
to a record average price in 2012 as
demand in emerging markets increases
and the United States avoids a reces-
sion.
West Texas Intermediate oil on the
New York Mercantile Exchange will
reach an average of $100 a barrel in
2012, based on the median of 27 ana-
lyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg,
topping the all-time high of $99.75 set
in 2008. The U.S. benchmark is on
course to average $95 a barrel this year.
Global demand will climb 1.4 per-
cent, with China accounting for more
than a 10th of the amount used, accord-
ing to the International Energy Agency.
Netflix boss losing bonus
Netflix CEO Reed Hastings will pay
a $1.5 million penalty for blunders that
alienated the video subscription ser-
vices customers and pulverized its
stock.
The punishment will be delivered
with a 50 percent reduction in his stock
option awards next year, according to
regulatory documents filed Thursday.
Instead of the $3 million stock option
allowance he received this year, Hasti-
ngs will get $1.5 million in 2012. His
base salary will remain unchanged at
$500,000.
Nuke design gets go-ahead
Federal regulators have approved a
nuclear reactor designed by Westin-
ghouse Electric Co. that could power
the first nuclear plants built from
scratch in this country in more than
three decades.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission
unanimously approved the AP1000
reactor on Thursday. The certification,
to take effect within two weeks, will be
valid for 15 years.
NRC Chairman Gregory Jaczko said
the newly approved design would en-
sure safety through simplified, passive
security functions and other features.
UPS pilots want hours limit
United Parcel Service pilots went to
court Thursday hoping to make the
government include them under new
rules designed to ensure airline pilots
arent too sleepy to fly.
Their union, the Independent Pilots
Association, filed a lawsuit against the
Federal Aviation Administration one
day after the new rules for passenger
airline pilots were announced. Cargo
carriers are exempt from the rules.

WASHINGTONThe job market is
getting healthier, adding to evidence
that the economy is improving as 2011
nears an end.
The number of people seeking un-
employment benefits fell last week to
its lowest level since April 2008, the
government said. The report suggest-
ed that layoffs are slowing further and
that employers may be ready to hire
more aggressively in the new year.
A gauge of future economic activity
also rose sharply last month. And the
economy is thought to be growing in
the current quarter much faster than
the 1.8 percent annual rate that the
government now estimates for last
summer.
The economy is carrying some
clear momentuminto 2012, said econ-
omist Joel Naroff of Naroff Economic
Advisors. The consistent decline in
the weekly lines at the unemployment
offices is pointing to a firming in the
labor markets, fewer layoffs, more jobs
being added and most importantly, a
decline in the unemployment rate.
First-time applications for unem-
ployment benefits last week fell 4,000
to a seasonally adjusted 364,000, the
Labor Department said Thursday. It
was the third straight weekly drop.
The four-week moving average, a less
volatile gauge, fell for the 11th time in
13 weeks. At 380,250, its the lowest
since June 2008.
When you fire fewer people, hiring
unquestionably follows, said Dan
Greenhaus, chief global strategist at
BTIG LLC.
The Conference Boards index of
leading economic indicators rose
strongly in November for the second
straight month. The economy is gain-
ing momentum, and the risks of a re-
cession are receding, economists with
the business research group said.
The index puts the economy on
track to growat a 4 percent annual rate
in the quarter ending this month, ac-
cording to Ian Shepherdson, chief U.S.
economist with High Frequency Eco-
nomics.
Thats a sharp increase from the 1.8
percent rate at which the government
now estimates the economy grew in
the July-September period. The econo-
my grew more slowly than previously
thought last quarter because consum-
ers spent less than the government had
first estimated.

GERMANS CAP OFF 2011 ON AN UP NOTE
AP PHOTO
A
man looks for a winter hat Thursday at a Christmas market booth in Erfurt, Germany. Business
and consumer confidence in Germany ended 2011 on a high note despite ongoing fears about the
European economy, two closely watched surveys showed.
MIAMI Authorities conducting a
six-week counterfeit sweep in three
countries seized 327,000 phony items --
including fake Hello Kitty clothing and
cheap imitation Casio G-Shock sport
watches -- that if legitimate carry sug-
gestedretail prices of more than$76mil-
lion, federal investigators saidThursday.
Counterfeiting remains a significant
problem that demands strong enforce-
ment efforts both here and abroad, said
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforce-
ment Director John Morton.
ICE and other agencies, as well as the
Mexican and South Korean govern-
ments, targeted flea markets, seaports,
land ports of entry, swap meets and re-
tail stores between Nov. 1 and Dec. 9 in
66 cities in the U.S., 55 cities in Mexico
and in Seoul, South Korea. Handbags,
cell phones, toys, computer software,
DVDs and sports jerseys were among
other items seized.
Thirty-three people have been arrest-
ed on charges of trafficking in counter-
feit goods.
Investigators said they hope the
sweep dubbedOperationHoliday Hoax
II will help them identify organized
crime groups behind the multimillion-
dollar fake merchandise industry.

MINNEAPOLIS Best Buy
gave its online customers just
about the worst news possible
four days before Christmas: Your
order has not been filled.
The electronics retailer said in a
statement Wednesday afternoon
that it will not be able to process
some of its online orders by Fri-
day, including some made the day
after Thanksgiving.
Due to overwhelming demand
of hot product offerings on Be-
stBuy.com during the November
and December time period, we
have encountered a situation that
has affected redemption of some
of our customers online orders,
it said. We are very sorry for the
inconvenience this has caused,
and we have notified the affected
customers.
It is not clear how many orders
have been affected or how large a
range of products is involved. Best
Buy spokeswoman Lisa Hawks de-
clined to answer questions beyond
the statement.
Analysts said the episode could
prove a significant setback for the
company, which already disap-
pointed investors this month with
a profit report that wasnt as
strong as expected.
This is not good for a tech com-
pany, retail expert Dave Brennan
said. This will translate to the
bottom line, and it will weaken
sales going forward.
Best Buy shares sank earlier this
month when the company sur-
prised Wall Street with disap-
pointing earnings attributable to a
shift in strategy that focuses on
market share over profit margins.
Sales at U.S. stores open at least a
year grew just shy of 1 percent in
Best Buys third quarter ended
Nov. 30. That marked the first
gain in same-store sales in almost
two years, but it led to significant-
ly smaller profit margins.
CEO Brian Dunn has been under
pressure to deliver a strong holi-
day season after a year of strategic
missteps in overseas markets
ranging from China to the United
Kingdom. Since Dunn became
CEO in June 2009, Best Buy
shares have fallen nearly 40 per-
cent.

Once again we
just missed out
on what could
have been 6 to
10 inches of
snow, which is
what last nights
rain would have
amounted to had
temperatures
been colder.
Now our
precipitation
total for the
year is close to
60 inches, nearly
22 inches above
normal. As the
stormspins
away today, only
slightly colder
air will move
in for tonight
and Friday with
clearing. In fact,
Saturday is look-
ing very sunny
with light winds.
On Christmas
Day, skies will
turn partly
cloudy, but con-
ditions should
remain dry. In
fact, most of
next week is
looking good for
travel.
- Tom Clark
NATIONAL FORECAST: Rain and snow will be possible over portions of the Northeast as a cold front
moves through that region. A cold front will also produce showers across portions of the Southeast.
A weak area of low pressure will bring a chance of snow showers to the northern Great Lakes. More
snow will fall over New Mexico, as well as portions of eastern Arizona and western Texas.
