WASHINGTON — Capitol

Hill negotiators Thursday offi-
cially unveiled hard-fought com-
promise legislation to prevent
160 million workers from getting
slapped with a payroll tax hike,
but it ran into turbulence in the
Senate, where Republicans with-
held support and several Demo-
crats attacked it.
The measure is a top election-
year priorityfor President Barack
Obama and generally won back-
ing from his Democratic allies in
Congress. But it’s getting only
grudging support from House
Republicans and even less from
Obama’s GOP rivals in the Sen-
ate, where party negotiators
shunned the measure and its $89
billion impact on the budget def-
icit over the coming decade.
The legislation is expected to
get votes in both House and Sen-
ate today, and Obama has prom-
ised to sign it right away, assum-
ing it passes.
But support in the Senate,
where Democrats control 53
votes, seemed soft. It will take 60

Senate Republicans are cool to the attempt to
head off a tax hike, and some Democrats
criticize it as it heads for votes today.

WASHINGTON — Kids have
easy and inexpensive access to

about what personal information

The Federal Trade Commis-

sell them, should be providing
parents with basic, simple-to-un-

which apps their children can

SALEM TWP. – A series of operation-

The commission has ranked the
plant’s Unit 1 in the bottom four of 104
plants nationwide and ordered extra in-

DALLAS TWP. – For a kid who
received an unsatisfactory grade
for conduct in grade school Crys-
tal Kuykendall did pretty well for
herself.
The author, lawyer, educator,
mother and grandmother was
the keynote speaker Thursday
night at Misericordia Universi-
ty’s 21st annual Diversity Insti-
tute dinner.
Kuykendall achievedquiteabit
on her own, but the gangly kid
who talked too much and didn’t
consider herself pretty owed
much of her success to people
who accepted her as different
fromother children and included
her in classes, encouraged her to
use her abilities to excel.
She implored the nearly 140
people in attendance to act as
“merchants of hope,” just like her
teachers and mentors, to make
present-day changes for the bene-
fit of future generations.
“If we’re not preparing all our
young people to mix and mingle
with children who are different,
we have not served them well,”
said Kuykendall.
She was born to a 19-year-old
mother who was a year out of
highschool. Her father was a dec-
orated and disabled veteran of
World War II. But despite their
limitations, they did their best to
see she was taken care of and she
went on to earn five advanced de-
grees, write the best-selling
books “From Rage to Hope: Re-
claiming Black and Hispanic Stu-
dents,” and its follow-up, “From
Rage to Hope II.”
The murder of her husband in
New Jersey nearly derailed her
career and sent her back to her
hometown of Chicago to with-
draw. However, she realized how
lucky she was in life when she
saw the 17-year-old boy who con-
fessed to the murder and met the
grandmother who raised him af-
ter his parents were killedina car
crash.

PITTSTON TWP. – The bi-
county board that oversees the
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Interna-
tional Airport has decided that
controllers frombothLuzerneand
Lackawanna counties shouldhave
the authority to sign airport-is-
sued checks. But board members
agreed checks can be issued with-
out their signatures.
A question arose in January
about whether the newly adopted
Luzerne County Home Rule Char-
ter permits a county controller to
signchecksfor anauthorityor oth-
er government board. In the past,
before the charter took effect, the
airport board required three sign-
ers from each county plus the sig-
nature of Barry J. Centini, the air-
port’s executive director. One of
the three signatures from each
county could be that of the con-
troller, but that was not required.
The issue became heated when
Centini said the board can set its
ownrulesanddoesnot needacon-
troller to sign checks.
Walter Griffith, the Luzerne
County controller, disagreed, say-
ing he felt that at a minimum the
method should continue, but he’d
prefer to see the board require at
least one controller review and
sign each check.
The matter was set
aside until Thursday,
when the monthly
meeting began with
Griffithandhis counter-
part in Lackawanna
County, Gary DiBileo,
asking the board to con-
tinue permitting con-
trollers to sign checks.
DiBileo said having a
controller review
checks and sign gives
taxpayers “another set
of eyes, another level of
transparency.”
Corey O’Brien, chairman of the
airport board and a Lackawanna
County commissioner, expressed
concern that checks could not be
signed if a controller was not at a
meeting.
DiBileo said he or a deputy con-
troller would be present at all
meetings and Griffith has rarely
misseda meetingsince he tookof-
fice.
A motion to continue the past
practice failed because one of Lu-
zerne County’s three members
was absent and County Council
member Rick Williams voted
against because he wanted a con-
troller’s signature to be required.
The board rules re-
quire at least two af-
firmative votes from
eachcountytoadopt a
motion.
O’Brien declared
the motion passed
anywayandinaphone
interview Thursday
afternoon said he
made a mistake and
apologized. Centini,
reached after the
meeting, said the mix-
up means the matter
will be placed on the
agenda for the March 22 board
meeting. Bothsaidtheerror won’t
affect anything because the status
quo, which the motion called for
anyway, will remain in effect.
Newly hired Luzerne County
Manager Robert Lawton, who is
the third county member on the
board, may be the deciding vote.
Lawtonwas not present Thursday
because he is in the process of
moving fromCalifornia.

One of the
three signa-
tures from
each county
could be that
of the con-
troller, but
that was not
required.
WILKES-BARRE–One of the
remaining plaintiffs in an 11-
year-old gasoline spill lawsuit
has appealed a county judge’s
ruling inthe case that dismissed
the lawsuit in favor of Exxon
Mobil Corp.
Attorneys for Franklin Taran-
tino also appealed former Judge
Lewis Wetzel’s ruling, throwing
out a request by Taranti-
no to void orders and set-
tlement agreements
made by disgraced ex-
Judge Mark Ciavarella.
The appeals were filed
with the state Superior
Court earlier this month.
“The fact is that other
families went to trial,
and my family also has
that right,” Tarantino
said. “Why Judge Wetzel
would deny us that right
with that ruling is be-
yond my ability to under-
stand.”
Tarantino’s family was one of
1,000 plaintiffs who originally
fileda lawsuit allegingfuel leaks
at the former Tranguch Tire and
Service Station on Church
Street in Hazleton entered the
ground, causing residents to
come down with diseases, in-
cluding cancer.
The case, commonly called
the Laurel Gardens gas spill, in-
volved the Tranguch business,
which closed in 1995 after filing
for bankruptcy.
A trial was held in September
2010 for some plaintiffs in the
case, and the jury ruled those
plaintiffs would not receive any
money, but that Exxon Mobil
and Tranguch were partially re-
sponsible for the spill.
Hundreds of other plaintiffs
in the case resolved their law-
suits in March 2011. The terms
of the resolutions were not dis-
closed.
In November 2009, Taranti-
no, who had previously repre-
sentedhimself inthe case, made
requests to have orders and set-
tlements made by Ciavarella
thrown out, based on the fact
that defendants and attorneys
involved in the case made cam-
paign contributions to Ciavarel-
la in his bid for judge.
Tarantino said in his filing he
felt as if Ciavarella forced himto
sign an agreement to settle the
case and settlement offers were
“grossly unfair.”
Wetzel, who denied the re-
quest just before he
left office in Decem-
ber, granted a motion
for summary judg-
ment for Exxon Mo-
bil.
Attorneys for Ex-
xon Mobil in August
filed a motion for
summary judgment
and asked that the
lawsuit be dismissed
based on there being
no “evidence of an in-
tentional act” on be-
half of Exxon Mobil,
and that Exxon Mobil did not
control thegasolineat Tranguch
when it was sold to Tranguch by
another distributor.
Sean McDonough, an attor-
ney for Exxon Mobil, did not re-
turn a message seeking com-
ment Thursday.
Tarantino’s attorney, Sean
Logsdon, said the legal issues
presented were similar to argu-
ments that had been made in
other lawsuits filed in connec-
tion with the Tranguch spill. In
those cases, other judges al-
lowed the case to proceed to a
jury.
Logsdon said Wetzel did not
issue an opinion detailing his le-
gal reasoning, so he doesn’t
know why Wetzel ruled differ-
ently than the other judges.
Staff writer Terrie Morgan-
Besecker contributed to this re-
port.

WILKES-BARRE – A Lu-
zerne County senior judge on
Wednesday made rulings regard-
ing psychiatric expert testimony
at court proceedings involving
the case of 18-year-old Cody Lee,
charged in the December 2009
shooting death of his great-grand-
father. Senior Judge Joseph
Augello ruled on requests by
prosecutors to reconsider his
previous ruling, barring a psychi-
atrist fromtestifying and his
reports frombeing presented in
court. On Wednesday, Augello
ruled psychiatrist John O’Brien
may testify only in response to
testimony by another defense
expert. Augello denied a request
by prosecutors to have testimony
of Richard Fischbein thrown out.
Prosecutors have previously
said once Augello makes rulings,
they will decide if an appeal is in
order or if they must hire a new
psychiatrist.

LEHMAN TWP. – The wrestling pro-
gram at Lake-Lehman High School is
temporarily on hold, high school Prin-
cipal Doug Klopp said, to protect stu-
dents from a contagious skin infection
Klopp said two varsity wrestlers con-
tracted herpes gladiatorum, a strain of
the herpes simplex virus spread by
skin-to-skin contact.
“We’re here for the students. We
want to protect the well-being of all
students involved in
(wrestling),” Klopp
said. “We’ve isolated
(the two students) to
make sure it wasn’t
bring spread.”
The school was
alerted to the infec-
tion Monday, Klopp
said, and action was
taken shortly thereaf-
ter.
According to the
Pennsylvania Depart-
ment of Health, the
illness takes about
eight days to appear
after exposure to an
infected person.
Sore throat, swollen
lymph nodes and fever or tingling of
the skin appear before skin lesions or
sores, according to the Department of
Health website. The sores typically af-
fect the face, arms, legs or abdomen.
“It’s incumbent upon us to protect
the student body,” Klopp said. “That’s
why we canceled the Wyoming Valley
West wrestling match (this week), so
we wouldn’t put their wrestlers at risk.
“We decided it would be best to limit
skin contact,” Klopp said.
He said it is common practice at the
school to clean wrestling mats before
and after practices, as well as side
walls and locker rooms.
Athletes are urged to take home
their equipment, not share items and
participate in routine skin checks,
Klopp said.

SCRANTON – The Luzerne County
Retirement Board has asked a judge to
dismiss a federal lawsuit filed by a for-
mer county official who was denied
pension benefits based on his guilty
plea to a corruptioncharge.
Bill Brace, former deputy chief clerk,
filed suit in November, alleging the
boardwronglydeniedhimhis$740-per-
month pension after he pleaded guilty
in January 2010 to
federal charge of cor-
rupt receipt of a re-
ward for official ac-
tion.
Brace, who was lat-
er sentenced to three
months in prison, ad-
mitted he accepted a
tailor-made, monogrammedsuit froma
company as a reward for helping the
business obtaina county contract.
State pension law precludes public
employees fromreceivingpensionben-
efits if they are convicted of certain
Pennsylvania state law crimes related
to their employment. The forfeiture al-
so applies if a person is convicted of a
federal offensethat is“substantiallythe
same” as the state lawoffense.
Brace has challenged the retirement
board’s position that federal charge to
which Brace pleaded guilty is equiva-
lent to the state lawcrime of bribery in
official and political matters, which is
among the offenses that triggers a pen-
sionforfeiture.
In the motion to dismiss filed Thurs-
day, attorney Robert Tintner said the
wording of state and federal statutes
makes it clear that they are substantial-
ly the same.
“Both statutes intend to punish a
publicofficial forsoliciting, demanding

WILKES-BARRE – Even before the
kick-off, theWilkes-BarreFamilyYMCA
was more than half-way down the field.
YMCA officials set a fundraising goal
of $5 million for a capital campaign that
will provide the final piece of funding
for a $14.8 million renovation of the 78-
year-old downtown structure and $1.2
million in upgrades for Camp Kresge.
The renovation includes construct-
ing a new six-lane pool, 21 apartments
for Wilkes University students and a
new wellness center. The project is be-
ing managed by Radnor Property
Group, which developed Gateway Cor-
ners for King’s College.
“I’ve got great news for you in terms
of our start,” campaign Chairman Doug
Gaudet told a group of about 50 people
including campaign leadership and ma-
jor donors duringthe launchof the com-
munity portion of the campaign Thurs-
day at Best Western Genetti Hotel &
Conference Center.

HARRISBURG
Votes sought for vacancies
T
he leader of the Pennsylvania
House Democratic caucus said
Thursday that the Republican speaker
should schedule special elections for
six vacant House seats that have been
in limbo since the state Supreme Court
threw out the legislative redistricting
plan last month.
The letter from Minority Leader
Frank Dermody to Speaker Sam Smith
said there are more than 300,000 Penn-
sylvanians who have been without
representation for more than a month.
He noted that budget deliberations will
be held in the near future.
A spokesman for Smith, R-Jefferson,
said a final redistricting plan has not
been approved, and cited the state’s
Election Code, which allows Smith to
hold off on scheduling special elections
under the normal time constraints
under those circumstances.
CLEVELAND
Sentenced in son’s death
The parents of an 8-year-old boy who
died from Hodgkin lymphoma after
suffering for months from undiagnosed
swollen glands was sentenced to eight
years in prison Thursday after pleading
guilty to denying him medical treat-
ment.
Attorneys for Monica Hussing, 37,
and William Robinson Sr., 40, had said
the parents had financial problems and
tried to get checkups for their son but
couldn’t afford it.
Willie Robinson collapsed at his
home on March 22, 2008. Prosecutors
say he had begged his parents to take
him to see a doctor but was rejected.
Hodgkin lymphoma is a highly treat-
able cancer.
Hussing’s daughter, Lillian Hussing,
said the family didn’t have money for
medical care when they lived in War-
ren, tried repeatedly to get help from
social services and visited a free clinic
but left when told they would have to
pay $180.
WASHINTON
GOP has No Child update
House Republicans on Thursday
pushed ahead with a plan to update the
federal No Child Left Behind education
law by shifting more control to states
and school districts in determining
whether children are learning.
A hearing on a pair of bills to have
states develop their own systems to
identify low-performing schools and
turn them around came days after
President Barack Obama freed 11 states
from some of the George W. Bush-era
law’s most stringent mandates. To get
waivers, states had to submit plans and
get the administration’s approval.
The administration says the waivers
are a stopgap until Congress updates
the law.
Passage appears unlikely in a gri-
dlocked Congress.
FARMINGTON HILLS, MICH.
Candidates to skip debate
Aides say Mitt Romney is out and
Rick Santorum is doubtful for a March
1 presidential debate in Atlanta spon-
sored by CNN.
Romney’s campaign said Thursday
that the former Massachusetts gover-
nor has participated in 20 debates and
was unable to schedule the Georgia
forum. Santorum’s campaign said the
former Pennsylvania senator also is
unlikely to attend.
It was unclear if the debate would go
forward with only Newt Gingrich and
Ron Paul, assuming they agree to at-
tend.
All four Republican candidates are
scheduled to debate Feb. 22 in Mesa,
Arizona.

COMAYAGUA, Honduras — The pris-
oners whose scorched bodies were car-
ried out piece by piece Thursday morn-
ing from a charred Honduran prison had
been locked inside an overcrowded peni-
tentiary where most inmates had never
been charged, let alone convicted, ac-
cording to an internal Honduran govern-
ment report obtained by The Associated
Press.
The Honduran government report,
which was sent to the United Nations
this month, said 57 percent of the ap-
proximately 800 inmates of the Comaya-
gua farm prison north of the country’s
capital were either awaiting trial or be-
ing held as suspected gang members.
A fire that witnesses said was started
by an inmate tore through the prison
Tuesday night, burning and suffocating
screaming men in their locked cells as
rescuers desperately searched for keys.
The death toll was at 355 Thursday after-
noon, according to attorney general’s
spokesman Melvin Duarte, making it the
world’s deadliest prison fire in a century.
Honduran authorities said they are
still investigating other possible causes
based on prisoner accounts, including
that the fire could have been set in collu-
sion with guards to stage a prison break.
Survivors told horrific tales of climb-
ing walls to break the sheet metal roof-
ing and escape, only to see prisoners in
other cell blocks being burned alive. In-
mates were found stuck to the roofing,
their bodies fused to the metal.

WASHINGTON — The na-
tion’s U.S. intelligence officials
said Thursday that if Iran is at-
tacked over its alleged nuclear
weapons program, it could retal-
iate by closing the Strait of Hor-
muz to ships and launch missiles
at regional U.S. forces and allies.
Testifying before the Senate
Armed Services Committee, De-
fense Intelligence Agency chief
Lt. Gen. RonaldBurgess saidIran
is unlikely toinitiate or intention-
ally provoke a conflict. His com-
ments came amid growing inter-
national fears that Israel would
launch military strikes against
Iran to thwart its nuclear ambi-
tions and counter recent diplo-
matic attacks in Thailand, India
and Georgia. Israel has accused
Iranof tryingtokill its diplomats.
Burgess and Director of Na-
tional Intelligence James Clap-
per said they do
not believe that
Israel has decid-
ed to strike Iran.
On the other
side of the Capi-
tol, Defense
Secretary Leon
Panetta said in-
telligence
shows that Iran
is continuing to
enrich uranium
but that Tehran
has not made a
decisiontoproceedwithdevelop-
ing a nuclear weapon. The for-
mer CIA director said the United
States is open to negotiations
with Iran to find a diplomatic so-
lution, but he said the U.S. keeps
all options on the table to ensure
that Tehran does not acquire a
nuclear weapon.
Clapper said it’s “technically
feasible” that Tehran could pro-
duce a nuclear weapon in one or
two years, if its leaders decide to
build one, “but practically not
likely.”
Their testimony came as many
inCongress are pressing the Oba-
ma administration to take tough
steps against Iran, questioning
whether diplomatic and econom-
ic sanctions have taken a toll on
the regime. This issue of Iran has
united Republicans and Demo-
crats, who have clamored for
harsh penalties. Last year, the
Senate voted 100-0 to impose pe-
nalties on Iran’s Central Bank,
and President Barack Obama
signed the sweeping defense bill
containing the sanctions on Dec.
31.
Speaking with reporters,
House Speaker John Boehner, R-
Ohio, said that for the sake of Is-
rael and moderate Arab nations,
“We need to take further action.”

UNITED NATIONS — The
U.N. General Assembly has ap-
proved a resolution backing an
Arab League plan that calls for
Syria’s president to step down
and strongly condemns human
rights violations by his regime.
The vote in the 193-member
world body was 137-12 with 17
abstentions.
Russia and China, who ve-
toed a similar resolution in the
Security Council, voted against
the resolution.
There are no vetoes in the
General Assembly and while
their resolutions are not legally
binding, they do reflect world
opiniononmajor issues.
Supporters were hoping for a
high “yes” vote to deliver a
strong message to Assad to im-
mediately end all human rights
violations and attacks on civil-
ians andhandpower tohis vice-
president.
Moscow has maintained
close ties with Damascus since
the Cold War, when Syria was
led by the current leader’s fa-
ther, Hafez Assad.
Meanwhile, U.N. Secretary
General Ban Ki-moon accused
the Syrian regime of commit-
ting “almost certain” crimes
against humanity Thursday as
activists reported fresh vio-
lence and the arrest of several
prominent dissidents, includ-

DETROIT — Calling it a “just puni-
shment,” a federal judge ordered life in
prison Thursday for a Nigerian man who
turned away from a privileged life and
tried to blow up an international jetliner
with nearly 300 people during a suicide
mission for al-Qaida.
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was the
same defiant man who four months ago
pleaded guilty to all
charges related to the
attempted destruction
of Northwest Airlines
Flight 253 with a bomb
in his underwear on
Christmas 2009. He
seemed to relish his
mandatory sentence
and defended his actions as rooted in the
Muslim holy book, the Quran.
Earlier, four passengers and a crew
member aboard Flight 253 told U.S. Dis-
trict Judge Nancy Edmunds that the
event forever changed their lives. Abdul-
mutallab looked disinterested during
their remarks — he rarely looked up
while seatedjust a fewfeet away, wearing
a white skull cap and an oversized prison
T-shirt.
Abdulmutallab “has never expressed
doubt or regret or remorse about his mis-
sion,” Edmunds said. “In contrast, he
sees that mission as divinely inspired and
a continuing mission.”
Life in prison is a “just punishment for
what he has done,” the judge said. “The
defendant poses a significant ongoing
threat to the safety of American citizens
everywhere.”
Abdulmutallab, a 25-year-old who was
educated in Europe and is the son of a
wealthy Nigerianbanker, toldthe govern-
ment that he trained in Yemen.

Before the campaign even be-
gan, Gaudet said, the Yreceived
a $5 million state Redevelop-
ment Assistance Capital Pro-
gram grant and $5,250,000 in
new markets and historic tax
credits for the projects. And the
Y invested $750,000.
That left the project $5 mil-
lionshort, settingthe bar for the
capital campaign goal. But be-
fore the community campaign
launched, campaign leadership
sought donations from commu-
nity leaders and charitable foun-
dations in a “silent phase” of the
campaign, Gaudet said.
“Because of the commit-
ments we received fromindivid-
uals in this room,
companies and
foundations,
we’ve been able to
raise $3,050,000
before we evenbe-
gan the (commu-
nity phase),” he
said. That means
only $2 million
more is needed to
complete the pro-
ject.
“The best news
of all is not only
will the project be fully funded,
but the Y, when we’re through
this campaign, will be debt-free
and we can devote all of our on-
going resources to program-
ming for the community,” he
said.
Amongthe topdonors –those
who contributed $50,000 or
more – were the Henry family,
owners of the Martz Group; the
Harry & Jeanette Weinberg
Foundation; and Rob Mericle
and the Mericle Foundation.
“What’s been accomplished
already is nothing short of mon-
umental when you look at to-
day’s economic environment,”
said Tom McGrath, master of
ceremonies for kickoff.
Scott Henry, president of the
Martz Group, said he and his
parents, Frank and Dorothy,
support the Y because “ it’s a
cornerstone of services in the
downtown that should not be
taken for granted, ” providing
families quality time together
and promoting “family values.”
Membershipdirector Lindsay
Landis noted that in addition to
offering child care and fitness
programs for all ages, last year,
the Y served thousands of free
lunches to underprivileged chil-
dren, helped in
flood-relief ef-
forts, donated to
a county hunger
program and par-
ticipated in Toys
for Tots. And the
Y continuously
sponsors tutor-
ing programs,
provides free
blood-pressure
screenings, hosts
blood drives and
provides many
other services.
Dr. Durelle Scott said the Y’s
mission is promoting healthy
living, youth and family devel-
opment and social responsibili-
ty. He noted that more than
1,500 people utilize the Wilkes-
Barre Family YMCA daily.
Given all that the YMCA pro-
vides for the community, Gau-
det said he hopes the communi-
ty will support the campaign.
Leslie Smith, campaign pro-
ject director, saidhe is confident
the campaign goal can be reac-
hed. “People might not feel as
well off as they once were, but
with this leadership and this be-
ing a very caring community, I
think they will step up,” he said.

HOW TO HEL P
“What’s been ac-
complished already
is nothing short of
monumental when
you look at today’s
economic environ-
ment.”
Tom McGrath
Master of ceremonies
votes to advance the measure,
and Democratic vote counters
braced for defections. They also
worried that Senate GOP leader
Mitch McConnell of Kentucky
wasn’t rounding up Republican
votes.
Meanwhile, in the House, the
top Republican said the $143 bil-
lionmeasurewon’t doanythingto
help the economy.
“Let’s be honest, this is an eco-
nomic relief package, not a bill
that’s going to grow the economy
and create jobs,” House Speaker
John Boehner, R-Ohio, said. But
after losingafight over thelegisla-
tion at the end of last year, Repub-
licans were determined to clear it
off of the political agenda and fo-
cus voters on Obama’s record
rather thantheir battles withhim.
“It was impossible to break
through on the politics,” Rep.
Greg Walden, R-Ore., said.
But several Democrats also
came out publicly against the bill
andothers haveprivatelysignaled
they’re likely “nay” votes. Most
noteworthy was Sen. Tom Har-
kin, who came out in “vehement
opposition” to the measure over
cuts to Obama’s health care law
and the reduction in a payroll tax
that’s dedicated to paying Social
Security benefits. Deficit
spendingwouldmake up
for the lost revenue, but
that was little solace to
the Iowa liberal.
“Make no mistake
about it, this is the begin-
ning of the end of the
sanctity of Social Securi-
ty,” Harkinsaid. “The ve-
ry real risk is that Social
Security will become
just another program to
be paid for with deficit spending,
and then in the future, perhaps
raided to help reduce the deficit.”
The legislation would extend
through the end of the year a 2
percentage-point cut in payroll
taxes that would fatten a typical
bimonthly paycheck by $40. It al-
so would renew jobless benefits
that deliver about $300 a week to
people out of work for more than
six months.
And it would head off a steep
cut in reimbursements for physi-
cians who treat Medicare pa-
tients, at a cost of $18 billion, fi-
nanced in part by cuts to a fund
created under Obama’s 2010
healthcarelawthat awards grants
for preventive care and by curbs
on Medicaid payments to hospi-
tals that care for a disproportion-
ate share of uninsured patients.
The pact was
sealed after weeks of
negotiations, first a
public round featur-
ing speechifying and
bickering, and then a
more intense private
round in which Rep.
Dave Camp, R-Mich.,
and Sen. Max Bau-
cus, D-Mont., took
the lead. The two
men, the respective
chairmen of the House and Sen-
ate panel with jurisdiction over
taxes, unemployment insurance
and Medicare, have forged a close
working relationship, even as top
party leaders publicly traded sal-
vos over the negotiations.
CombativeDemocrats likeSen.
Chuck Schumer of New York
openly boasted of the leverage
Democrats carried into the talks.
But Republicans had no interest
in reprising their December expe-
rience, when they got their heads
handed to themafter a barrage of
criticism from Republicans and
conservatives around the country
— featured almost every hour on
24-hour cable new networks.
GOP leaders gave the talks a
major boost over the weekend by
dropping a demand that the tax
cut be paid for with spending
cuts.
The move guaranteed that the
measure wouldn’t be popular
with deficit hawks in either party.
In addition to Harkin, Sens. Joe
Manchin, D-W.Va., andMarkWar-
ner, D-Va., also came out against
the measure on Thursday.
According to a Congressional
Budget Office estimate released
Thursday, themeasurewouldadd
$141 billion to the deficit during
fiscal 2012-2013, with $52 billion
of that cost gradually recouped
over the coming decade.
Still, piling most of the mea-
sure’s cost onto the $15 trillion-
plus national debt meant negotia-
tors had to find just $50 billion or
so inrevenues or spending cuts to
finance renewing jobless benefits
and fixing the Medicare payment
rate.
About $15 billion came as free
money to be raised by auctioning
off parts of the broadcast televi-
sion airwaves to wireless compa-
nies. Even more would be raised
in upcoming auctions, but broad-
cast license holders would be
compensated for giving up spec-
trum, while $7 billion would be
dedicated to creating a new pub-
lic safety network for emergency
first responders. That wouldcom-
plete a key remaining recommen-
dation of the commission that
lookedintothewayemergencyof-
ficials dealt with the 9/11 terror
attacks.
The last major hang-up in-
volved changes to a provision de-
manded by Republicans to re-
quire federal workers contribute
more to their generous defined
benefit pension plans.
Most pension systems have
switched to less generous but
moremobiledefinedcontribution
plans.
The provision, modified to win
support fromkey members of the
Maryland delegation, requires
newly-hired federal workers to
contribute 2.3 percent more of
their salaries toward their tradi-
tional defined benefit pensions,
raising $15 billion over the com-
ing decade.

P
aul A. Grendzinski, 56, a resi-
dent of Swoyersville, passed
away peacefully early Wednesday
morning, February 15, 2012 at Hos-
pice Care of the V.N.A., Inpatient
Unit at Saint Luke’s Villa, Wilkes-
Barre.
His lovingwife, ColleenL. (Roth)
Grendzinski, was especially blessed
to have Paul as her belovedhusband
for nearly 13 years.
Born on July 18, 1955, in Wilkes-
Barre, Paul was the son of Berna-
dine (Dobrowalski) Grendzinski of
Plymouth and the late Frank Grend-
zinski.
Raised in Plymouth, Paul was a
graduate of West Side Area Voca-
tional-Technical School, Pringle.
Later, he went on to further his edu-
cation at Penn State University.
where he pursued a degree in engi-
neering.
A United States Air Force veter-
an, Paul honorably served his coun-
try as an Air Traffic Control Radar
Specialist. During his time of ser-
vice, Paul was decorated with the
Air Force Outstanding Unit Award
and the Air Force Good Conduct
Medal. Paul was honorably dis-
charged from the Air Force in Au-
gust 1980.
Prior to his retirement, Paul was
employed as a computer technician
for Hershey Foods. Additionally, he
was employedas a bio-medical tech-
nician for the Hershey Medical Cen-
ter.
Over the years, Paul belonged to
many clubs and service organiza-
tions, including the American Le-
gion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars,
the Disabled American Veterans
and Dela Ches Fishing Association.
Also, Paul was a longtime member
of the Swoyersville Lions Club and
was actively involvedwiththe club’s
various community activities and
fundraisers.
Paul was always eager and will-
ing to help others in any possible
way, whether doing shopping, run-
ning errands, taking friends to doc-
tor appointments or just providing
company and companionship. He
always kept himself busy working
on various projects and he relaxed
by working on Sudoku puzzles, at
which he was a master.
Known for his patriotism, Paul
was commemorated for his many
hours of volunteer work at the V.A.
Hospital in Wilkes-Barre.
Paul enjoyed the outdoors and
nature, and fishing was his unend-
ing passion. One could say that no
one loved music, pizza, the Nittany
Lions and the Steelers more than
Paul.
Animals always gravitated to
Paul and he was inseparable from
his beloved pets, the late Snowey
and his current best buddy, Toto.
Paul dearly loved his wife, Col-
leen, his family, his pets, his country
and his friends with an extraordin-
ary passion. Those who truly knew
Paul will remember him for his
abounding kindness, generosity
and his irrepressible sense of hu-
mor. To describe Paul in a couple of
words, it would be “unforgettable
character.” Paul was rarely seen
without a big smile on his face and
he truly enjoyed and celebrated ev-
ery day of his relatively short life
here onearthbefore he was calledto
a higher purpose.
In addition to his wife, Colleen
and his mother, Bernadine, Paul is
survived by his sons, Shawn Grend-
zinski and his wife Kristen, of Her-
shey, andSteve Grendzinski, of Her-
shey; his sister, Teresa Sack, of Ply-
mouth; his nieces, great-nieces and
nephews.

Northwest Area board
looking for economies
UNION TWP. – A proposed
2012-13 budget, which under
current projected figures has the
Northwest Area School District
increasing expenditures by 0.8
percent, came up for discussion
at Wednesday night’s school
board meeting and produced a
warning from board President
Randy Tomasacci.
Tomasacci didn’t say the
district was in dire financial
straits, but he did state that
since Gov. Tom Corbett’s budget
doesn’t provide for an increase
in reimbursement to the state’s
public school districts, “there is
at this point, a need for the
administration and professional
staff to tighten down.”
The board’s budget and fi-
nance committee has already
begun a series of public meet-
ings to discuss finances. The
next session has been scheduled
for Thursday at 1 p.m. in the
board room of the high school.
Peter Lanza, transportation
chairman, also stated that his
committee, in the face of pro-
spects of $5 per gallon gasoline,
is considering consolidating bus
runs and staggering class start-
ing times in 2012-13 in an at-
tempt to contain costs.
Besides fiscal issues, the
board concurred unanimously
with a recommendation by
Superintendent Ronald Grevera
to suspend for 35 days a high
school student who violated the
district’s policy on weapons.
Grevera said the student had a
pellet gun and knives in his car,
which was parked on school
property, although he never
expressed any threats or threat-
ened any students or teachers.
Grevera said the student
volunteered the information in a
casual conversation with one of
his teachers.In his report to the
board, Grevera said that in the
interest of costs, he is exploring
the feasibility of bringing back
into the school district students
who attend classes at other
districts under a program ad-
ministered by the intermediate
unit. Grevera said in his view it
will be better to have these
included in the activities and
classes of their home district.
He additionally asked for par-
ents as well as other people
from the community to partici-
pate on a strategic planning
committee to implement Chap-
ter 12 programs.

Dallas looks to plans
for Toby Creek issues
DALLAS – Officials an-
nounced Wednesday the bor-
ough will continue to pursue
plans to address storm water
issues caused by Toby Creek.
Borough Manager Tracey
Carr said the borough is moving
forward in applying for a grant
through the state Department of
Conservation and Natural Re-
sources to “clean up debris and
sediment” within Toby Creek.
Carr said there are no specific
plans yet because she wants to
see if the project could even be
funded before property owners
and engineers get involved in
the details.
She said depending on the
funds received, the borough and
property owners along the creek
may have to contribute to the
cost of the project. She also said
all landowners involved would
have to cooperate in allowing
the work for the project to be
successful.
Council also voted to apply
for a grant from the Luzerne
County Office of Community
Development to address storm
water and street infrastructure
issues on Wellington Avenue.
Carr said the street has been
on the paving list for a few
years, but the borough has never
had enough funds to complete
the project. She said every three
years municipalities are eligible
for a Community Development
Block Grant.
She added surveys will need
to be conducted and additional
information gathered to see if
the street is eligible for the
program.
In other business, council
approved an ordinance banning
large donation boxes within the
borough. At last month’s meet-
ing, Carr said the donation
boxes, typically for clothing,
furniture and other physical
items, have become a nuisance
in the borough and block public
access to driveways and other
areas.
Council also approved a reso-
lution to limit public comments
during the meetings to a five-
minute time frame. Carr said
this has always been the rule at
meetings, but there was never
any formal resolution declaring
it.
Eric Domzalski was rehired
for the part-time season position
of summer recreation director at
$9 per hour. Carr was autho-
rized to seek applications for
summer recreation program
counselors.

Pittston council moves
on street paving plan
PITTSTON – City Council
voted to advertise for bids to
pave Union and West Oak
streets and possibly Wharf
Street during Wednesday night’s
regular meeting.
The issue was brought up
during January’s meeting, but
the council refrained from tak-
ing any action, citing cost con-
cerns. Now that Reilly Associ-
ates, the city’s engineering firm,
has evaluated the area, city
officials are confident they can
have the project completed for
around $150,000.
Reilly Associates evaluated
Union, Thistle, East and West
Oak streets. Of those, Union
and West Oak were deemed to
have been in the most deplor-
able condition.
Although it was not listed
with the initial four streets that
were evaluated, officials hope a
small section of Wharf Street,
which is in need of paving,
could possibly be included with
little or no extra cost added on
to what was budgeted for Union
and West Oak streets.
In other business, Solicitor
Sam Falcone confirmed Popple
Construction is putting the city
on notice for a possible lawsuit
resulting from disputes over
payments received concerning
work done on the city’s sewer
project.
Falcone stopped short of
going into any detail as the legal
issue is still pending.
City Manager Joseph Mosko-
vitz also did not address the
possible lawsuit in detail but he
did say that despite how drawn-
out the sewer project has be-
come, the payments that have
been made, and are scheduled
to be paid are within the
amount initially budgeted.
Also on Wednesday, the coun-
cil voted to raise the fees for
postage and handling of refuse
stickers for the city and the
borough of Hughestown from
$2.75 to $3.50.
Moskovitz said recent in-
creases in postage costs forced
the city to pay $3.35 for the
mailing while it was only charg-
ing residents of the two munici-
palities $2.75.

Rice Township board
acts on sewer concern
RICE TWP. – Supervisors on
Tuesday night assured con-
cerned residents that their well-
being took highest priority as
they wait for the Nuangola Bor-
ough Council to finalize plans
for a sewage project that is to
run pipes through the township.
“I’m sure that everyone at this
table cares about the residents,”
said recently elected Supervisor
Marcia Thomas. “That’s first
and foremost.”
The project will almost cer-
tainly require blasting.
The township’s three board
members agreed to send a letter
to Nuangola officials indicating
the township would agree to the
sewer authority’s project, if the
Nuangola officials sign an in-
demnification agreement to
protect residents’ and township
property from any consequential
damage.
Chairman Miller Stella said
the agreement has to be air-
tight.
“We have to make 100 percent
sure that we have this in black
and white,” Stella said. “Bottom
line is to make sure that we
protect our residents.”
The agreement would require
sewer authority workers to keep
video evidence along the sewer
route and make full restitutions
should blasting cause property
damage.
In other business, the super-
visors discussed an ongoing
problem.
Thomas recounted a series of
fictitious, anonymous com-
plaints to the state Department
of Environmental Protection
concerning residential sewage
violations.
Upon investigating these
complaints, Alan Snelson, the
township’s sewage enforcement
officer, found no violations.
Stella said he called the state
agency’s local office to request
that complainants submit their
grievances to the township in
writing and identify themselves.
He was told, however, the
anonymity policy exists to pro-
tect the callers and his request
could not be honored.
“I told DEP, at that time, that
they should change their pol-
icy,” Stella said.
Resident Mark Kijek, also
irritated that the anonymous
complaints continue after a year,
suggested the supervisors write
a formal letter to the state repre-
sentative to see about changing
the policy.
They agreed to draft a letter.
Jon O’Connell
Zosh Road water OK,
Lake Twp. board says
LAKE TWP. – Discolored
water found off Zosh Road was
tested and found to be safe.
Supervisor Amy Salansky said
during the last supervisors
meeting on Feb. 8 that a Leh-
man Township resident brought
to the supervisors’ attention
discolored water off Zosh Road.
The state Department of
Environmental Protection test-
ed the water and found it safe,
“just swamp water,” Salansky
said.
She said there are several
swampy areas off Zosh Road.
Some feared the discolored
water was a result from a well
established by Encana Oil and
Gas in 2010 on Paul and Amy
Salansky’s property.
The Salanskys acquired the
property after the previous
owner had signed a legal agree-
ment with Encana.
After drilling, Encana discov-
ered the area was lacking the
large commercial amounts of
gas needed. The well was
capped and the land is begin-
ning to be reclaimed.
Salansky said the supervisors
reported the water issue to
Encana, which had DEP test the
water.
In another matter, Salansky
attended a meeting of the Back
Mountain Community Part-
nership in January and said it
would be in the township’s best
interest if they joined the part-
nership.
Currently, the partnership is
composed of six municipalities:
Dallas, Franklin, Jackson, King-
ston and Lehman townships and
Dallas Borough.
Eileen Godin
Back Mt. group joins
Chamber of Commerce
DALLAS TWP. – The Back
Mountain Community Part-
nership officially joined the
Back Mountain Chamber of
Commerce at a meeting Thurs-
day.
Lynn Banta, co-founder of the
chamber, presented information
to the partnership about the
chamber and its inclusion of
governmental bodies, nonprofit
agencies and educational facil-
ities.
The group unanimously de-
cided to join the chamber. The
partnership consists of Dallas
Borough and Dallas, Franklin,
Jackson, Kingston and Lehman
townships. Representatives
from Jackson and Lehman town-
ships were not present Thurs-
day.
Chairman James Reino Jr., of
Kingston Township, said the
action gives municipalities a
chance to open the lines of
communication with local busi-
nesses.
“In most cases, communities
don’t hear from businesses
unless they are applying for
something or are expanding,
and then there is no input until
it’s too late,” said Reino, who
will serve as the group’s repre-
sentative for the chamber. “I
think this is the first chamber
like this I’ve heard of in the
state.”
The group also discussed
earned income tax collection
within individual municipalities.
Mike Prokopchak, of Franklin
Township, said there have been
instances in which residents’
addresses don’t reflect where
they actually live, and this could
result in the wrong municipality
collecting earned income taxes.
“For example, I live in Fran-
klin Township, but my address
says ... Dallas,” he said.
He said that sort of confusion
hurts smaller municipalities like
Franklin Township, which has
an annual budget of about
$300,000.
The group agreed to ask a
representative from the Don
Wilkinson Agency to discuss
this and other issues at its next
meeting.

MEETINGS
public safety is not threatened, but the
incidents at Susquehanna Unit 1 raised
concerns and inspections will increase
at least through 2012.
“We will be sending special teams of
inspectors there until the NRC is satis-
fied that all concerns have been resolv-
ed,” Sheehan said. “Ideally, all reactors
should be listed in Column 1. The Sus-
quehanna plant will get additional NRC
scrutiny, but we want to be clear that we
have not reached the point where the
NRC feels the plant is unsafe.”
Joe Scopelliti, spokesman for PPL,
said corrective actions are being taken
and appropriate procedures and policies
are being reviewed and revised.
“We’vespent a lot of timelookingat all
of our programs and procedures,” Sco-
pelliti said. “We are aware of the NRC’s
concerns and we are working to make it
better.”
Sheehan said the NRC issued a white
inspection finding at Susquehanna Unit
1onJuly16, 2010, ,after aninternal flood-
ing event. He said leakage from a con-
denser led to “significant flooding.”
“The NRC felt the situation could
have been identified earlier and prevent-
ed,” Sheehan said.
The unit experiencedfour other white
inspection findings within a period of
7,000 operating hours, Sheehan said.
They occurred on April 22, May 14 and
July 16, 2010, and on June 25, 2011, he
said.
“These were performance indicators,”
Sheehan said. “They were unplanned
scrams or shutdowns.”
Sheehan said that due to the incidents
Susquehanna Unit 1 was placed in the
third, or Downgraded Cornerstone Co-
lumn. The lower ranking brings much
higher NRC oversight and scrutiny.
“The plant will remain in that catego-
ry until the NRCis assured PPL fully un-
derstands why the problems occurred
and has shown that they have imple-
mented effective corrective actions to
prevent future occurrences.”
There are two NRC inspectors on-site
at Susquehanna at all times, Sheehan
said.
When asked how long the additional
teams will be dispatched, Sheehan said,
“Until the NRCis satisfied. At least for a
year, but it could be longer if the con-
cerns are not being met.”
Sheehan noted that Unit 2 at Susque-
hanna is in the top column – Licensee
Response.
Scopelliti saidhe wantedtostress that
there is no danger to the public.
“We’re about getting better and we
want to and need to continue to get bet-
ter,” he said. “Anything the NRC can do
to help us we will listen; we’re not above
learning. Our people have worked hard
to make improvements.”
According to the federal Energy Infor-
mation Administration, PPL Susque-
hanna Unit 1went into operation in June
1983, and Unit 2 entered service in Feb-
ruary 1985. Both received 20-year li-
cense extensions in November 2009 to
2042 and 2044, respectively. FRED ADAMS FILE PHOTO/FOR THE TIMES LEADER

President Obama’s campaign spokesman assessed the race to capture

here are the priorities? A singer with

Corbett and the GOP:
It’s their way all the way
A
number of recent newspaper articles
have revealed how Gov. Tom Corbett
and the Republican-controlled Legisla-
ture generate laws to support their pa-
trons, large oil and gas corporations, while
at the same time forcing residents of Penn-
sylvania to relinquish their right to a
peaceful, safe and clean environment for
themselves and their children.
Select lawmakers from the House and
Senate met with the governor’s office in
closed-door sessions to discuss the com-
plexities of a new proposal dealing with a
variety of gas drilling issues. Concern has
been expressed that the ideas of Democrat-
ic lawmakers were not allowed into the
discussion or, if they were, they were
quickly negated. Of course, any fresh ideas
might move the discussion from the agen-
da dictated and paid for by gas drilling
corporations. Public input, filtered and
distorted by elected representatives, was
judged to be far too simplistic to be of any
value.
At a time when we need collaborative
input from a variety of perspectives in
order to solve, in a comprehensive manner,
our economic and environmental prob-
lems, state leadership has decided that its
one-dimensional point of view is the only
one worthy of consideration.
Apparently the only collaboration the
governor and the Republican leadership
are willing to consider is with gas drilling
corporations.

Assurance phone user
questions toll-free fees
T
he government is helping low-income
people with free cell phones and 250
free minutes a month. I am one of
those people. I have an Assurance cell
phone and I have a question.
I noticed that I was being charged for
toll-free calls. I thought toll-free meant the
company I was calling paid for the call,
hence “toll free.”
My question is: Can they do this? Is this
right, to charge the government for calls
that someone else is paying? Does anyone
know the answer?

LUZERNE COUNTY Coun-
cil made the right choice
this week in opting to bal-
ance the 2012 budget
through a mix of layoffs and
a tax increase. It wasn’t the
best choice, but it was the
right one.
The best choice would have been for
unions to agree to wage freezes, for workers
who get both longevity pay and annual
raises to give up one of those two, and for
the state to pick up a bigger share of the
services that Harrisburg mandates but
doesn’t fully fund.
If we could go back in time and knock the
heads of a few profligate past commission-
ers who borrowed money the way most of
us change socks, well, that would be a bo-
nus.
None of those choices was available to the
council in the scant weeks it had between
taking office in January and amending a
budget left by outgoing commissioners as
we changed forms of government. Council
members ultimately had two options: Lay
off a lot of people across the board without
time to figure out the consequences, or raise
taxes a modest 2 percent and reduce the
layoffs, buying time to figure out how to
right the listing ship they suddenly run.
They bought time. Or more exactly, they
borrowed money from property owners to
buy time.
As the co-owner (with my wife) of two
properties, I’d much prefer no tax hike. The
idea that it could have been avoided by
unions accepting what I, my wife and many
others in the private sector have lived with
for years – stagnant pay until the economy
picks up – is galling.
But we can afford the modest tax in-
crease, and council deserves a chance to
prove it is trying to end the old ways respon-
sibly, not extend them.
Consider the potential fallout from mas-
sive layoffs across the board (aside from the
likely spate of lawsuits costing money we’re
trying to save). Radical cuts without careful
review could leave critical departments
understaffed and overworked. Those are the
same conditions we had in juvenile court
when then-judges Michael Conahan and
Mark Ciavarella launched their travesty of
justice. Such conditions create fertile
ground for the unscrupulous to thrive.
Do we really want to slash staffing in key
departments such as District Attorney, Pub-
lic Defender and Probation? Do we want
fewer eyes making sure criminals – alleged
and convicted – are guaranteed their rights,
paying their punishments and following the
rules? Do we want to make it easier for a
crooked employee to game the system?
A majority of council members did what
they had to do to get past this budget proc-
ess without risking mayhem. Now they have
10 months to prove this was a one-time
patch – to do what it takes to put the county
on the path to firm financial footing.
Barring some dramatic change in financ-
es, unions need to know concessions are an
essential part of that path. Council needs to
get hard-nosed.
Start by opening the books and challenge
unions to come up with ways to balance the
budget without a tax hike. Encourage collab-
oration, invite cost-cutting ideas, try for the
cooperative solution. It’s always the best
one.
But make it unequivocally clear to all
employees that a tax hike is not an option
next year, and that the goal is to roll back
this year’s 2 percent increase.
Spell out how many layoffs will be neces-
sary without concessions or other savings.
Figure out who is most likely to go, and
publicize the list. Give unions and the public
plenty of time to react; give them plenty of
reasons for the decisions.
That way, when it comes time to pass
next year’s budget with no tax hike and
impending layoffs, no one can cry foul at the
last minute.
Because you can bet taxpayers on fixed
incomes, unemployment compensation or
flatlined salaries in the private sector will
not tolerate another tax hike simply so
county workers can get a raise.

needtocleanupvoter rolls that
are muddled by duplicate and
out-of-date registrations.
Among the issues needing
attention are purging the rolls
of voters who have died or
moved and registered else-
where and correcting data
that’s incorrect in other ways.
Such registration problems led
to 2.2 million votes being lost
during the 2008 elections, ac-
cording to experts.
What the Pew study did not
find, though, was any evidence
that the bad record-keeping
has led to voter fraud.
GOP lawmakers promoting
so-called voter ID laws – Gov.
Tom Corbett among them –
point to supposed fraud as the
reason to require citizens to go
to unheard-of lengths to identi-
fy themselves at the polls. But
since fraud has not been shown
by any study to be a significant
factor in the outcome of elec-
tions in Pennsylvania, that’s
clearly a bogus issue.
While one in eight registra-
tions nationwide were found to
be invalid or incorrect in Pew’s
study, the center also said 25
percent of voting-age Ameri-
cans were not registered at all.
That’s yet another sign the na-
tion needs to make it easier to
register and vote – rather than
erect new barriers to voting
like photo ID rules.

OTHER OPINION: PHOTO ID DEBATE
Focus on real flaw
with voting rolls
M
IDWAY through
February, the bleak-
est of months,
many of us yearn
for a warm feeling and a few,
even if fleeting, sunny mo-
ments.
The Salvation Army of
Wilkes-Barre provided that
scenario Wednesday as it hon-
ored some of the area’s bright
spots – the men and women
who volunteer during its an-
nual Red Kettle Campaign as
bell ringers.
They included the suit-wear-
ing Tom Kasper, a conscien-
tious 68-year-old retired com-
puter programmer who last
year brought in the most
bucks, as well as college stu-
dents, former Salvation Army
clients, repeat ringers who call
themselves the “ding-a-lings”
and a cross-section of other
people who care about this
community. Together, the
bunch collected more than
$167,000.
The Salvation Army calcu-
lated the volunteers’ efforts,
saying they tallied 7,000 hours
of service from Nov. 12 until
Christmas Eve. These souls
had posted themselves at area
grocery stores and retail out-
lets. They braved the elements
and hordes of frenzied holiday
shoppers. They accepted cash
and, for the first time locally,
credit cards. Thanks to an uni-
dentified donor, they even
pulled from one red collection
pot a pair of diamond earrings.
The sumof their labors, add-
ed to those of similar kettle
projects across the United
States in 2011, allowed the Sal-
vationArmytotakeina record-
setting $147.6 million, accord-
ing to the Virginia-based orga-
nization. It marked the nation-
al campaign’s 120th year
Beyond dollars and cents,
the Red Kettle Campaign mea-
sures success this way: lives
changed and needs met. Dona-
tions helpthe SalvationArmy’s
network of chapters to supply
food, clothing, shelter and
counseling.
Locally, the attention that
ringers drew to the army’s fun-
draising crusade ultimately
brought cheer to nearly 4,000
area residents, some of whom
received food vouchers and
children’s Christmas gifts.
Hooray and thanks to the ar-
ea’s intrepid bell ringers. You
are a blessing to the Greater
Wyoming Valley.
Gratitude also goes to all
those businesses that annually
allow the ringers to station
themselves near busy entranc-
es and exits. And, of course,
thank you to the people who
pause by those kettles and
share loose change or lots
more.
Your generosity warms our
hearts.

ties, Newman said.
Additional funding will be
needed for masonry and cosmet-
ic repairs, though he said the
building is structurally sound.
Fundraiser in works
A capital fundraiser is being
planned in the near fu-
ture to seek private and
corporate donations for
the project, Newman
said. Many cultural en-
tities must get involved
because the structure is
too big for one group,
he said.
The status of the pro-
ject might be discussed
by Luzerne County offi-
cials in the near future
because the property
could be listed in an up-
coming tax sale. The
property carries around
$145,200 in back taxes from2006
through 2008.
Past commissioners voted to
remove it from prior tax sales in
2009 and 2010.
County Councilman Stephen
A. Urban, a former commission-
er, recently told council mem-
bers they will have to decide
whether to continue keeping the
structure out of the sales.
Urban said he wants to see the
property restored but hasn’t seen
any evidence of progress.
“The chamber shouldn’t have
bought it if it didn’t have a plan
to raise the money,” Urban said.
“I don’t want to see the building
decay like the Sterling.”
Newman said the building is
dry and secure, comparing it to a
“time capsule.” He does not be-
lieve anyone in the private sector
would buy the building at a tax
sale and invest the money need-
ed to preserve it.
“To think that this
building is ever going to
be something other than
a nonprofit civic build-
ing is wishful thinking,”
Newman said. “It’s not
an issue of people being
interested in being able
to use the facility. It’s an
issue of getting the facil-
ity into the condition
where people can use it
again.”
Point of curiosity
Newman is confident
many want the building pre-
served, saying residents and vis-
itors frequently visit the cham-
ber to inquire about the status
and history of the unique struc-
ture.
Built in 1907, the brick build-
ing is topped with a dome and
distinguished by four towering
minarets and decorative mark-
ings. It has several stained-glass
windows and interior marble
stairs. Though paint is peeling
inside, murals of desert scenes
and other artwork above the
stage is largely intact because
the chamber spent $120,000 on
roof repairs to stop damaging
leaks.
Newman said it’s one of the
most significant “postcard im-
age” buildings in the city, an ex-
ample of the Moorish revival
style of architecture. It’s also one
of the oldest standing examples
of a temple built by the Shriners,
a Masonic organization, he said.
“It’s this magnificent cartoon
of a building,” Newman said. “If
we as a community want to save
the building, we need to work to-
gether and be patient so we can
systematically figure out how to
do what’s necessary to get this
building back into service.”
The Irem was the major per-
forming arts center in Wilkes-
Barre until the F.M. Kirby Center
for the Performing Arts opened
in the 1980s, Newman said. The
building also has a high-ceiling
basement that once served as a
primary conference center and a
small ballroom with ancillary
rooms on the second floor.
Those involved in the project
believe the Irem could serve as a
performance venue for groups
that don’t need a facility as large
as the Kirby.
‘Exceptional’ prospect
Bob Stanley, who volunteers
with Little Theater, recently
toured the Irem with Newman.
“This is a jewel. It cannot be
destroyed,” Stanley said. “To
have something of this quality in
a community of this size is ex-
ceptional, and this is an opportu-
nity that can’t be lost.”
Joe Sheridan, also of the Little
Theater, said his 90-year-old or-
ganization is one of the oldest
continually operating communi-
ty theaters in the country, and it
originally performed at the Irem.
He believes many performance
groups, including dance compa-
nies, would use the facility.
“The building is just phenom-
enal, and we’re losing too much,”
Sheridan said, referring to other
historical structures that have
been demolished.

Luzerne County Council members
are devoting part of Tuesday’s public
work session to a discussion about the
Hotel Sterling project.
Council members Harry Haas, Elaine
Maddon Curry and Rick Williams had
requested public discussion on the top-
ic as they weigh whether they’ll sup-
port demolition of the landmark down-
town Wilkes-Barre structure.
The council members said they still
have unanswered questions and want
to provide citizens with an opportunity
to speak on the subject.
Council members stressed meeting
attendees advocating preservation will
be asked to identify funding streams
because a consulting study estimated it
would cost $26.8 million to $35.6 mil-
lion to fully restore the structure, and
no developers or government funding
sources have surfaced.
A majority of council agrees demoli-
tion is the only option, but council
members won’t vote on the matter un-
less a cooperative agreement is reached
among the county, Wilkes-Barre and
the building’s nonprofit owner, CityV-
est.
The agreement is designed to re-
move the county from liability during
demolition and ensure the county ac-
quires the more than 3-acres of prime
land after the structure at the corner of
River and Market streets is demol-
ished. The complicated demolition de-
sign won’t be started without a signed
agreement, officials said.
CityVest owes the county $6 million
loaned to preserve and market the
structure, and the county has set aside
another $1 million in community devel-
opment funding for demolition. The
nonprofit is out of money and asked the
county to decide the building’s fate last
year.
CityVest representatives haven’t
signed the agreement in large part be-
cause it holds CityVest and its volun-
teer board liable for any damage or in-
jury claims that aren’t covered by
CityVest’s insurance, county officials
have said.
Council Chairman Jim Bobeck said
the work session will touch on the his-
tory of the project, but he wants to
focus more on the current condition of
the building and how to proceed.
“It’s about the status now and what
could be done, the best course,” Bo-
beck said.
If an agreement isn’t reached, Wilkes-
Barre may be forced to demolish the
city-condemned structure at its ex-
pense. The city would then have to put
a lien on the property in an attempt to
recoup the money.
Wilkes-Barre has pledged about
$260,000 in gaming taxes toward dem-
olition.
CityVest could also attempt to file for
bankruptcy, which would put the pro-
ject in limbo as the building continues
to deteriorate.
CityVest representatives have been
asked to attend Tuesday’s session, but
it’s still unclear if they will participate.

Young will seek the Democratic nomina-

Butler TownshipBoardof Supervisors for
28 years and previously served as chair-
man.
Republican Rick Arnold, a homebuild-

Mullery, D-Newport Township, who beat
Arnold two years ago, is seeking second
term.
Republican Pete Mailloux, a small-
business owner fromFairviewTownship,
announced a run for the 121st District,
currently representedby Eddie Day Pash-
inski, D-Wilkes-Barre. But Mailloux’s can-
didacy is in flux because of the uncertain-
ty of the legislative redistricting process.
Fairview Township was moved to the
119th District under a reapportionment
plan approved by a state commission at
the end of 2011. But the state Supreme
Court ruled the maps were not constitu-
tional and that current maps should re-
main in effect until new ones are drawn.
The commission could vote on revised
maps at a meeting next week.
Mailloux said if Fairview Township is
kept in the 119th he would likely not run
against Arnold as one of the men would
withdraw.
No one filed paperwork Thursday to
challenge Rep. Mike Carroll, D-Avoca;

WILKES – BARRE – There’s
no rule in the sport of basketball
that says every win has to be a
pretty one.
Meyers allowed cross-town ri-
val GAR just five field goals, kept
all but two Grenadiers fromscor-
ing and held GAR to four points
or less in all four quarters of a 28-
13 win in a Wyoming Valley Con-
ference Division III girls game.
Meyers ended its regular sea-
son with an overall record of 11-11
and finished 4-3 in second-half
league play. GAR finishes at 6-15
with a second-
half league play
record of 3-4.
The Mohawks
are in the Dis-
trict 2 Class 2A
playoffs as the
WVC’s second
seed. GAR and Wyoming Semi-
nary will determine the third
seed in an elimination game at a
site and time to be determined.
“The last time we met, it didn’t
go the way we hoped it would. I
really challenged the girls to-
night to come out and force GAR
to make some plays to beat us,”
said Meyers coach Chris Gray. “I
thinkanycoachwouldbe pleased
with the defensive effort we turn-
ed in tonight.”
Meyers kept GAR off balance
from the opening tip. The Mo-
hawks started the game in a 2-1-2
fullcourt press that flustered
GAR’s ballhandlers into some
early turnovers, and Meyers’ cen-
ter-power forward duo of MacK-
enzie Winder and Jazma Robert-
son spent the first half vacuum-
ing up rebounds and swatting
away most shot attempts that
came their way. By the end of the
first half, a basket and free throw
from Quieterriua Gross and a
jump shot from Brea Seabrook
was all the offense the GARcould
manage, finding itself in an 11-5
hole to start the third quarter.
“The first time this season we
matched up with them, we didn’t
really establish any post pres-
ence, defensively speaking,” said
Gray. “Winder and Robertson re-
ally stepped up for us tonight.
The way they rebounded the bas-
ketball, it was one and done for
GARalmost every time down the
court.”

NEW YORK — Gary Carter was
nicknamed “Kid” for good reason.
His smile, bubbly personality and
eagerness to excel on a ball field
made him a joy to watch at the plate
and behind it.
Even his Hall of Fame bronze
plaque at Cooperstown shows him
with a toothy grin — the Kid forever.
The star catcher, whose single for
the New York Mets in the 1986 World
Series touched off one of the most
improbable rallies in baseball, died
Thursday. He was 57.
Carter was diagnosed with a malig-
nant brain tumor last May, two
weeks after finishing his second
season as coach at Palm Beach Atlan-
tic University. Mets spokesman Jay
Horwitz said Carter died at a hospice
in the West Palm Beach, Fla., area.
“I am deeply saddened to tell you
all that my precious dad went to be
with Jesus today at 4:10 p.m.,” Car-
ter’s daughter Kimmy Bloemers
wrote on the family website. “This is
the most difficult thing I have ever
had to write in my entire life but I
wanted you all to know.”
Carter was an 11-time All-Star and
three-time Gold Glove winner. His
bottom-of-the-10th single in Game 6
of the 1986 Series helped the Mets
mount a charge against the Boston
Red Sox and eventually beat them.
With curly, blond locks flaring out
from beneath his helmet, and a rigid,
upright batting stance, Carter was

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pen-
guins head coach John Hynes ap-
proaches the season in chunks.
Rather than deal with the long
term, Hynes focuses on the here
and now.
In the next 10 days, there will
be a lot to focus on.
The Pen-
guins begin a
stretch of six
games in 10
days tonight
when they
travel to
Binghamton
to take on the
Senators.
The next day, they’ll head to Al-
bany to face the Devils and then
it’s off to Portland after one day
of rest for a Monday matchup.
After that, the Penguins will
return home for a three-game
stint, wrapping up the stretch on
Feb. 26 with a bout against Nor-
folk.
Hynes said the busy stretch is
just what the Penguins need.
“It comes at a good time. If you
have practices and a lot of time
between games, particularly in
this month, it starts to drag,” he
said. “This is a good challenge
for us.”
To prepare for the challenge,
the Penguins held a team meet-
ing on Thursday and only a hand-
ful of players skated afterward.
Hynes said that’s one of the
benefits of a 76-game schedule –
more recovery time.
“You have chunks of time to
practice and work out, and you
also have recovery days,” he said.
“The players have time to take
care of their bodies and get into
the weight room. It helps you
keep the schedule fresh.”
The upcoming stretch features
matchups against teams in the
thick of Eastern Conference play-
off race. Norfolk is currently tied
with the Penguins for the divi-
sion lead, Manchester is in sixth
overall, and the other upcoming
foes are all vying for the last play-
off spot.

YATESVILLE – The Pittston
Area versus Wyoming Area rival-
ry hit the hardwood Thursday
night and the Patriots proved
why they will be playing for the
regular season championship on
Monday as they defeated the
Warriors 64-41.
“We go into every game with a
great deal of respect for our oppo-
nent,” Pittston Area coach Kathy
Healey said. “Pittston Area,
Wyoming Area is a great rivalry
and you never know what is go-
ing to happen. We were very ex-
cited for this game.”
Pittston Area will play Wyom-
ing Valley West for the Wyoming
Valley Conference Division I title
Monday, although the site and
time haven’t been set.
Pittston Area struggled from
the floor early, allowing the War-
riors to capture a 5-3 lead in the
first two min-
utes of the
game.
Allie Barber,
though, used a
combination of
good defense
and even better
offense to give
the Patriots a 7-5 lead with 4:11
remaining in the first quarter.
Barber tied it at 5-5 with a quick
steal and an easy lay-in. Kelly
Mitchell gave the Patriots the
lead when she nailed a jump shot
from just inside the free throw
stripe.
With2:09remaininginthe first
quarter. Mia Hopkins drove the
lane and was fouled, but still con-
verted the left handed layup. She
went to the line with a chance to
convert the traditional three-
point play, but insteadmissedthe
free throw, got her own rebound
and put it right back up to give
the Patriots a 13-7 lead.
The Patriots only heated up
from there as they went into the
locker room up 35-18.
Hopkins really heatedupinthe
third quarter as she scored 13
points, leading the Patriots to a
45-29 advantage after three quar-
ters.
The Warriors had two players
in double figures. Serra Degnan
led the way with11points and Sa-
rah Radzwilka added 10.
The Patriots also had two play-
ers indouble figures. Hopkins led
the team with a double-double,
going for 20 points and 15 re-
bounds. Allie Barber added 13
points, four steals and three as-
sists.

KINGSTON – Lake-Lehman
used a 30-8 run to lock up the
Wyoming Valley Conference
Division III second-half crown,
downing Wyoming Seminary
48-31 in girls basketball Thurs-
day.
Seminary led 13-10 a minute
into the second quarter after a
baseline drive by Ann Roma-
nowski, but Lehman’s offense
clicked after that. Lehman used
a 14-6 burst to lead 24-19 at the
break, then scored the first 15
points of the second half to put
the game away.
Twenty of the 30 points in
Lehman’s 30-8 run came from
the paint against Seminary.
Cayle Spencer led the way for
Lehman with a career-high 23
points. Spencer is averaging 17.4
points per game in Lehman’s
last five contests.
Emily Sutton had five straight
points in Lehman’s streak of 15
unanswered points to finish
with 10.
“She’s a very determined
young lady,” Lehman coach
Charlie Levan said of Spencer.
“She’s only a freshman, but the
kind of determination she
shows is the kind you usually
get from an upperclassman.
“Emily Sutton really stepped
up for us, and our role players
got stops when we needed
them.”
Lehman (7-0, 17-5) will play
first-half champion Nanticoke
(6-1, 20-2) for the Division III
title Monday at 6 p.m. at Holy
Redeemer. Both teams will
advance to the District 2 play-
offs.
Seminary (2-5, 7-13) will face
GAR on Tuesday for the final
WVC berth in the District 2
Class 2A tournament. Both
teams have 5-9 overall league
records.
“We didn’t play hard against
GAR on Monday,” Seminary
coach Ron Strothers said of an
improved effort by his team
Thursday against the division
champs. “We really had a much
better effort tonight. The first
half, we executed our game. In
the second half, we got a little
sloppy with the ball, we rushed
shots and, defensively, we didn’t
play as hard.”

INDIANAPOLIS — Danny
Granger delivered when Indi-
ana needed him most Thurs-
day.
The Pacers’ leading scorer
played through a sprained left
ankle to score 32 points and
helped struggling Indiana snap
a season-worst five-game los-
ing streak by beating strug-
gling New Jersey 93-88.
Granger missed Wednesday’s
loss at Cleveland and the final
three quarters of Tuesday’s
loss to Miami because of the
injury, and without him, the
Pacers just weren’t the same.
The biggest questions head-
ing into the Nets game were
how long Granger could play
on his gimpy ankle and how
effective he would be. It didn’t
take him long to prove he was
just fine.
Granger made 10 of 20
shots, 8 of 9 from the free-
throw line and grabbed five
rebounds in a game the Pacers
(18-12) desperately needed to
win.
Deron Williams scored 29
points and Kris Humphries
had 24 points and 10 rebounds
to lead New Jersey (8-23), not
quite enough to snap a skid
that hit eight straight and is
the longest for the franchise
since an eight-game skid from
Nov. 30-Dec. 14, 2010.
The difference Thursday:
Granger.
He started a 15-0 run in the
first half to rally the Pacers
early, then made the key shots
in a 9-2 fourth-quarter spurt
that finally gave Indiana con-
trol. Indiana closed it out by
making six of its last seven
free throws.
New Jersey sure didn’t make
it easy, though.
Humphries controlled the
inside early, making his first
six shots and scoring 12 points
in the first quarter as the Nets
built a 29-18 lead.
Bulls 89, Celtics 80
CHICAGO — Carlos Boozer
and Luol Deng each scored 23
points, and the Chicago Bulls
escaped with a victory over the
Boston Celtics after blowing a
16-point lead.
It was hardly an easy night
for the Bulls, but they contin-
ued to pile up the wins even
though reigning MVP Derrick
Rose missed his fourth straight
game because of lower back
pain.

There could be a lot of move-
ment in the standings over the
next 10 days, but that’s not what
Hynes is focused on.
“There’s going to be a lot of
movement the rest of the year be-
cause things are so tight,” he
said. “It’s not so much about
where we sit in the standings.
This is a good opportunity for us
to analyze aspects of our game
and get better. It’s such a short
window of games, you can’t get
caught up in the highs and lows.”
VALABIK SURGERY
D Boris Valabik, who hasn’t
played since Dec. 27 since suffer-
ing a hand injury, will need sur-
gery that will effectively end his
season. The 6-foot-7, 255-pound
defenseman signed with the Pen-
guins last summer, but was limit-
ed by injuries. He appeared in on-
ly three games, going scoreless
with a minus-4 rating and seven

Prior to 2007, Wyoming
Seminary had never won the
Pennsylvania Prep Champion-
ship.
Now the Blue Knights are
expected to win every year.
They carry a five-year win-
ning streak into Saturday’s
event, which will be held out-
side of Philadelphia at Episco-
pal Academy in Newtown
Square.
“It took a lot of work getting
the program to the tier that it
is. And now, we feel like we
should dominate and win the
tournament every year,” Semi-
nary coach Scott Green said.
“It’s not one of our main goals
at the beginning of the year,
but also it’s good to keep those
other PA prep schools knowing
that we’re going to be on top
for a long time.”
Approximately 34 prep
schools from Pennsylvania will
be participating in the tourna-
ment. Most of the schools are
from the Philadelphia area.
A sixth straight state title for
the Blue Knights would tie
Germantown Academy’s state
record of six consecutive state
championships. In its five-year
run, Seminary has never
crowned less than five state
champions and the most was
eight in 2010, which tied Ger-
mantown’s record of most state
titlists crowned.
After this weekend, the team
will gear up for a run at the
national title next weekend
during the National Prep
Championships at Lehigh Uni-
versity.
One of the big obstacles at
that tournament is national
powerhouse Blair Academy,
which has won 31 straight na-
tional championships and ev-
ery title since 1981. The Blue
Knights have finished second
to the Bucs in the last five
years.
“They’re the measuring
stick,” Green said about Blair.
“We feel if we make ourselves
better that eventually we’re go-
ing to catch up.”
The Knights have been rec-
ognized nationally with three
wrestlers heading to Division I
schools in 120-pounder Evan
Botwin (Duke), 126-pounder
Dom Malone (Northwestern)
and 220-pounder A.J. Vizcar-
rondo (West Virginia). They
have also been ranked highly
by several publications. ESPN
Rise, a high school magazine,
featured the team in a recent
issue.
“National rankings are nice
and the recognition we got is
nice, but winning the national
prep title is the ultimate goal
as a team and we have a way to
go to get there,” Green noted.
Malone is shooting for his
fourth straight individual state
championship. He is also a de-
fending national champion af-
ter finishing as runner-up in
2010 and third in 2009.
“It felt good to win (the na-
tional title), but now I have a
target on my back this year,”
Malone said. “But I’m ready for
it and I’m looking to go out
with a win there.”
The rest of the Blue Knights
lineup consists of 11 of the fol-
lowing: Danny Boychuck
(freshman, 106 pounds), Logan
May (senior, 113), Tyler Ponte
(sophomore, 120), Tyler Fraley
(senior, 132), Jesse Holton (ju-
nior, 132), Ty White (sopho-
more, 138), Sal Diaz (sopho-
more, 145), Cohl Fulk (senior,
152), Ryan McMullan (sopho-
more, 160), Eric Morris (ju-
nior, 170), Conor Wasson (se-
nior, 182), Matt Doggett (soph-
omore, 195) and Michael John-
son (freshman, 285).

New mats to be used for L-L Invitational
The Lake-Lehman Invitational will be held this weekend despite
reports that the Lake-Lehman wrestling program was hit with a
skin infection.
The tournament is taking the place of the District 2 junior high
tournament, which was cut by the district.
According to Lehman junior high coach Jim Rosencrans, the
junior high program was never affected. He added that three of
the four mats that will be used are brand new from the National
Guard. The fourth mat is new to the wrestling program and has
not been used this season.
There are 16 junior high teams committed to participate in the
tourney, which will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday after the 8 a.m.
weigh-ins. The finals are expected to kick off between 3 and 4
p.m. There will be medals distributed to the placewinners, and a
team champion will also be crowned.

run him in 14 Sprint Cup series
races this season. For now, at
least, he doesn’t have a full-time
Nationwide Series ride either.
“It’s OK,” Bayne said at Thurs-
day’s media day at Daytona Inter-
national Speedway. “We’re just
making the best of what we’ve
got right nowand it’s tough to do
that when you only have a few
races. For me, I’m running about
the same schedule I ran in Cup
last year. It’s kind of one a month
withthe 21car, but inNationwide
I had hoped to run a full season
this year and run for a champion-
ship. Obviously, as a young guy
you want to have championships
under your belt and full seasons.”
The Feb. 26 Daytona 500 is on
Bayne’s limited schedule, but he
doesn’t have one of the starting
spots guaranteed to the top 35
teams in points from last season.
He says they don’t plan on trying
to buy a guaranteed spot froman-
other team—so he’ll have earn a
spot in Sunday’s qualifying or
Thursday’s qualifying races.
Bayne doesn’t have a full-time
ride in the Nationwide series, ei-
ther. Roush Fenway Racing plans
to run him in the first three races
of the season, hoping to attract
potential sponsors with good re-
sults and run more races.
“I still haven’t spent a whole
full season with one team yet in
Nationwide, and I think that
would be great to have that op-
portunity,” Bayne said. “But,
right now, we’re going to run the
first three races and kind of see
where we stand, work on spon-
sorship deals. It just shows how
tough it is right now. Here we are
at Roush Fenway Racing with
great things to offer and it’s still
tough for us, so we’re working re-
ally hard at that.”
Bayne certainly hoped his Day-
tona 500 win would catapult him
into a full-time ride right away,
but he’s remaining patient for
now.
“It’s almost like being a part of
the family there,” Bayne said of
the Wood Brothers team. “I think
for this point in my career the
Wood Brothers is the best place
for me to be. If we could run full-
time, that would be better, but I
enjoy that family andjust the sup-
port that they give me.”
NASCARveteranMichael Wal-
trip sees Bayne’s struggle to se-
cure a full-time ride is another
sign of a sluggish economy.
“It’s not just NASCAR, it’s how
difficult things are today,” Wal-
trip said. “Trevor’s a sharp young
man, very well-spoken, good-
looking kid and got a great heart.
Can drive the heck out of the car
and just didn’t get the opportuni-
ty, hasn’t had the opportunity to
do it full time yet.”
But trying to refine his driving
skills while running a limited
schedule wasn’t the only chal-
lenge Bayne faced last year. He
missed several weeks after being
diagnosed with a mystery ail-
ment that turned out to be Lyme
disease. Sitting out those races,
Bayne said, made him realize
“how much you appreciate being
here.”
Bayne says he’s feeling fine
now, good enough to take a mis-
sion trip to Kenya in the offsea-
son.
“What’s wild about people in
Kenya is like nomatter whoare, if
you’re from out of town or an
American and you show up on
their front porch, they’re pulling
out chairs and trying to give you
food at their little mud huts,”
Bayne said. “They’re incredible
people, so I would tell anybody
they should go check it out be-
cause, to me, it was humbling.
These people don’t have hardly
anything and here they are, their
kids are so happy. They’ve got
their bellies sticking out because
they’re malnourished and stuff,
but they’rethemost pumpedkids
in the world to be alive.”

LAS VEGAS — Dozens of ce-
lebrities from the sports, film
and TV realms plan to fete box-
ing icon Muhammad Ali and
raise money for brain research
during a tribute in Las Vegas to
be aired later on ABC.
The Saturday gala to celebrate
Ali’s 70th birthday at the MGM
Grand on the Las Vegas Strip
will double as a fundraiser, with
the money going to the Cleve-
land Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for
Brain Health and the Muham-
mad Ali Center in Louisville, Ky.
Ali turned 70 last month, and
had a party honoring him in
Kentucky.
One of Ali’s daughters, Rashe-
da Ali, said the gala is another
chance for her father to use his
celebrity to help others and to
further causes he cares about.
“Boxing was his introduction
to the world, and he took it be-
yond boxing. He feels boxing
was there to get people to notice
him,” Rasheda Ali said. “He
knows that his purpose was not
to be a heavyweight.”
The gala is expected to in-
clude performances and tributes
from Stevie Wonder, David
Beckham, Larry King, Quincy
Jones and others. It will be held
at the MGM Grand Garden Are-
na, the site of numerous top
prizefights over the past 20
years as Sin City established it-
self as the world’s capital of box-
ing.
Tickets start at $1,500 a seat.
Attendees will dine on food spe-
cially prepared by celebrity chefs
Wolfgang Puck, Tom Colicchio,
Michael Mina and Scott Conant.
More expensive seats — up to
$100,000 for a “ringside” table of
10 with the promise of sitting
with at least one celebrity —
will offer a close-up view of what
Rasheda Ali says could be an un-
predictable party with so many
famous faces on the bill.
“You’re talking about celebri-
ties and people who really have
a huge influence on a lot of peo-
ple,” she said. “People, around
him, they come down to earth.”
Ali will attend, but it’s not
clear whether he will speak at
the event. He’s not scheduled to
walk a pre-show red carpet.
Larry Ruvo, chairman of Keep
Memory Alive, the clinic’s fun-
draising arm, said Ali deserves
every accolade he gets, as he’s
become one of the five most rec-
ognizable people on the planet.
And the money raised this
weekend will help fight neuro-
logical diseases, a cause that res-
onates with millions of people
personally, as well as with Ali,
Ruvo said.

LOS ANGELES — Four days
after his big win at Pebble
Beach, Phil Mickelson keeps
right on rolling.
Mickelson hit driver off the
deck from just under 300 yards
on the par-5 11th that led to a
two-putt birdie, and he ended a
gorgeous afternoon Thursday at
Riviera by chipping in from 35
feet for birdie. That gave him a
5-under 66 anda one-shot leadin
the Northern Trust Open.
Dating to the back nine of his
second round at the Pebble
Beach National Pro-Am, Mickel-
son has made birdie or eagle on
one-third of the holes he has
played. And his streak of consec-
utive holes without a bogey fi-
nally ended at 49 on the par-3
16th.
No matter. He looked good
with the putter and with his low,
penetrating tee shots that he
kept below the tree line on a
windy day that prevented low
scoring.
J.B. Holmes, inhis fourthtour-
nament since returning from
brain surgery in September,
played his final six holes without
a par. His round ended with a
315-yard tee shot — a big drive
in the cool air of Los Angeles in
February — and an approach to
8 feet for birdie at No. 9, the sec-
ond-toughest hole at Riviera.
That gave him a 4-under 67.
He was tied with Hunter Mahan,
whose 35-foot birdie at No. 5
sent him on a string of four
straight birdies.
They all played in the after-
noon, when the wind began to
die late in the day.
Jonathan Byrd, who faced the
chilly, blustery conditions of the
morning, had a 68. He was
joined by Carl Pettersson.
The first round was suspend-
ed by darkness with 30 players
yet to finish the round, a typical
occurrence at this tournament
with 144-man field and limited
daylight.
Mickelson is coming off an 8-
under 64 in the final round at
Pebble Beach, where he rallied
from a six-shot deficit — and
beat playing partner Tiger
Woods by 11 shots — to change
the outlook on his West Coast
Swing. Riviera is his final tour-
nament before the tour moves to
Florida, and even on a different
golf course, not much has
changed.
He holed a 30-foot birdie putt
on the long par-3 fourth hole,
and then really got going on the
back nine.
After a tough pitch to 12 feet
that led to birdie on the 10th,
Mickelson had 297 yards to the
hole on the 11th and decided to
hit driver, a shot he had not tried
in months.
It came off perfectly and
climbed onto the front edge of
the green, makingMickelsonthe
only player to have an eagle putt
on the 587-yard hole, which
played right into the wind. The
pin was all the way back, away
froma large hump in the putting
surface, which gave Mickelson
the green light.
His eagle putt from 60 feet
died next to the hole.

EASTLANSING, Mich. —
Draymond Green had 20 points
and10 rebounds, Keith Appling
scored 20 points and No. 7 Mi-
chigan State beat No. 15 Wiscon-
sin 69-55 on Thursday night to
move back into a first-place tie
with No. 6 Ohio State.
The Spartans (21-5, 10-3 Big
Ten) have won four straight —
the longest active streak in the
conference —and six of their
last seven games.
The Badgers (19-7, 8-5) had
won seven of their last eight,
including their previous four
road games, after opening the
Big Ten season with three
straight losses.
Appling’s three-point play
with 5:24 left in the first half
capped a14-0 run that gave Mi-
chigan State a 22-12 lead.
The Spartans led 31-19 at
halftime and built a 53-33 lead
midway through the second half.
Penn St. 69, Iowa 64
STATECOLLEGE—Tim
Frazier scored18 points and
Penn State withstood a 3-point
shooting barrage in the second
half by Iowa’s Matt Gatens to
hold on for a victory.
Trailing 66-63 with 49 seconds
left, Iowa’s Melsahn Basabe
missed two foul shots and Jon
Grahamwas fouled at the other
end for Penn State (12-15, 4-10
Big Ten). The redshirt freshman
forward hit two free throws for a
five-point lead, spurring a silent
Jordan Center crowd into rau-
cous cheers.
Basabe missed another foul
shot with 7 seconds left and
Cammeron Woodyard went 1of 2
fromthe line to seal the win.
Gatens hit 5 of 7 frombehind
the 3-point arc in the second half.
He scored11straight for Iowa
(13-13, 5-8) at one point to help

Virginia Tech 47
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. —Mi-
chael Snaer’s 3-pointer with 2.6
seconds left boosted No. 20
Florida State to a victory over
Virginia Tech, keeping the Semi-
noles in a first-place tie in the
Atlantic Coast Conference.
Snaer, who had made only 3 of
his10 previous shots, hit the
game-winner fromnearly the
identical spot he produced simi-
lar heroics in Florida State’s
76-73 win at Duke on Jan. 21.
Ian Miller led Florida State
(18-7, 9-2) with11points and
Snaer had nine to help the Semi-
noles rally froma15-point deficit
early in the second half.
Erick Green led Virginia Tech
(14-12, 3-8) with18 points and
was nearly fouled as he launched
a last-second desperation shot
that bounced off the rimas the
buzzer sounded.

WESTLAFAYETTE, Ind. —
Maggie Lucas scored 28 points
and No. 12 Penn State main-
tained its Big Ten lead by defeat-
ing No. 17 Purdue.
It was the fifth straight win for
the Lady Lions (21-5, 11-3), who
have two home games remaining
—against No. 9 Ohio State,
which trails Penn State by a
half-game, and Minnesota —
before the Big Ten tournament
begins March1in Indianapolis.
Lucas scored 20 of her points
in the second half, when Penn
State pulled away froma 35-33
halftime lead.

ers.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. —Jas-
mine Robinson scored17 points
and Alabama held off a big rally
for a victory over No. 7 Ken-
tucky.
The Tide (12-15, 2-11South-
eastern Conference) had most of
a 23-point lead wiped out in the
second half before handing the
league-leading Wildcats (21-5,
10-3) their third straight defeat.
Alabama hadn’t beaten a
ranked teamsince a 70-59 win
over No. 24 BYUon Dec. 21,
2002.
A’dia Mathies kept this one in
question with 26 points for Ken-
tucky, including a 3-pointer with
1second left.
Mathies drained a quick 3 and
Bria Goss scored on a drive to
make it 74-70 with 35 seconds to
go. Shafontaye Myers dribbled
around for some 20 seconds
against Kentucky’s full-court
pressure before heaving a long
pass to a streaking Meghan
Perkins for the game-sealing
layup.
Maryland 73, Virginia 56
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. —
Tianna Hawkins scored a career-
high 26 points and grabbed14
rebounds, and No. 8 Maryland
took charge early in a victory
over Virginia.
Hawkins missed just once in
13 shot attempts as the Terrapins
(22-4, 9-4 Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence) rebounded fromSunday’s
76-74 home loss to No. 6 Miami.
Maryland led by six in that game
with 6 minutes remaining, but

back and sweep the season se-
ries.

COLUMBUS, Ohio —Tayler
Hill scored 27 points and No. 9
Ohio State never trailed in hand-
ing Indiana its13th straight loss,
even with the Buckeyes playing

in the conference, was battling
the flu. She was on the bench at
the outset but then went to the
locker room.

42 points, including the 2,000th
of her career, 14 rebounds and six
blocks to help No. 10 Delaware

Delaware (23-1, 14-0 Colonial
Athletic Association) used a15-2
run spanning halftime to take
control of the game. Delle
Donne, who leads the nation in
scoring at 28 points a game, had
nine points during the burst —
including a tough bank shot that
capped the spree and made it
50-41.
She hit a pretty 3-pointer from
the top of the key a fewminutes
later to cross the 2,000-point
milestone and give the Blue
Hens a 59-48 lead. The 6-foot-5
junior scored14 straight points
to help keep Hofstra (17-8, 9-5)
fromgetting any closer than six
the rest of the way.

NEW YORK — Some fans will
no longer be able to watch every
NCAA men’s basketball tourna-
ment game online for free.
The model for streaming
March Madness will change this
year, Turner, CBS and the NCAA
announced Thursday. Games
aired on CBS will still be free
through the network’s website.
Most, but not all, viewers who
get TBS, TNT and truTV on
their cable or satellite systems
will be able to watch games aired
on those channels online at no
cost.
Fans can also pay $3.99 to see
every game on multiple plat-
forms — online, mobile and tab-
let.
About 77 million households
will be able to watch the Turner
channels for free online through
a process called authentication.
That’s out of the 100 million that
get TBS and TNT, which are
available in around 87 percent of
American homes with televi-
sions.
The way fans watch March
Madness on TV changed drasti-
cally last season with the start of
CBS and Turner’s 14-year, $10.8
billion deal with the NCAA. In-
stead of CBS showing regional
coverage and switching among
games, each contest aired nation-
ally in its entirety on one of the
four networks. The shift was a
hit: Viewership was up14 percent
for the tournament’s opening
weekend.
As for the previous five years,
fans could also see every game
for free online. They watched
13.7 million hours of streaming
video online and through mobile
devices, a 17 percent increase
from 2010.
Turner Sports senior vice pres-
ident Matthew Hong said the
company considered using au-
thentication last year but wanted
to wait until people adjusted to
the new TV setup. Another fac-
tor was that the systemwas avail-
able to far fewer subscribers a
year ago; he hopes that by 2013,
all customers who get the Turner
networks through their provid-
ers will be able to authenticate.
The “TV Everywhere” model
has become popular with many
networks as a way to allow view-
ers to watch programs on multi-
ple devices while encouraging
them to stick with cable and sat-
ellite providers. But authentica-
tion — proving you subscribe to
a provider that offers the service
— does require an extra step
from past years for fans trying to
access NCAA tournament
games. Turner is working to
make the process easier, such as
linking it to customers’ Facebook
logins.
Some fans with the ability to
authenticate may just decide it’s
easier to pay the $3.99, Hong ac-
knowledged.
“Obviously, a lot of thought
and market research went into
that price point,” he said. “We
wanted to make it a fair price and
for people to get value at that
price. Obviously, we didn’t want
to make it too high, but we didn’t
want to make it too low; we want
to incent authentication.”
March Madness on Demand
was launched by CBS and the
NCAA in 2003 and required a
subscription, with an average
price of $15, for the first three
years. In 2006, it converted to a
free, ad-supported service. The
new product will be known as
March Madness Live and still in-
clude ads.
There was initially a charge for
watching games on an iPhone,
which became free for just last
year. The app will be available on
Android phones for the first time
during this season’s tournament.

PHILADELPHIA — Wayne
Simmonds scored two goals
after he was hit in the face in
warmups and Max Talbot also
scored twice , leading the Phi-
ladelphia Flyers to a 7-2 victory
over the Buffalo Sabres on
Thursday night.
Erik Gustafsson scored his
first career NHL goal as part of
a four-goal second period for
the Flyers. That surge bailed
out goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, who
allowed two goals in the first.
Jakub Voracek and Scott
Hartnell added goals in the
third for the Flyers to turn this
one into a rout. Claude Giroux
had five assists.
Simmonds was hit in war-
mups and joined the bench
minutes into the first period.
He wore a full face shield for
protection.
Simmonds, who already has
a career high in goals, scored
consecutive goals in the second
for a 3-2 lead. Sabres goalie
Jhonas Enroth was yanked
after allowing three straight
goals. Ryan Miller allowed one
to Gustafsson, giving the
Flyers four goals on their first
10 shots of the period.
Blackhawks 4, Rangers 2
NEW YORK — Jonathan
Toews scored on a penalty shot
to start Chicago’s four-goal first
period against New York back-
up Martin Biron, and the
Blackhawks emphatically
snapped a nine-game losing
streak with a victory over the
Eastern Conference-leading
Rangers.
Toews kicked off the spree
just over a minute in, defense-
man Nick Leddy doubled the
lead 1:03 later, and Patrick
Sharp and Marian Hossa added
goals to make it 4-0 before 10
minutes had elapsed. Corey
Crawford kept things mostly
intact the rest of the way, stop-
ping 22 shots to help the Black-
hawks earn their first win since
they topped Florida on Jan. 20.
Toews and Hossa both added
assists in the first period, and
defenseman Brent Seabrook
set up two goals for the Black-
hawks, who scored over three
goals in a game only once
during their losing streak (0-
8-1). Chicago, which had 22
shots, was 0-6-1 during the first
seven games of a nine-game
trip that ends Saturday at Co-
lumbus.
Marc Staal and Carl Hagelin
scored for New York.
Lightning 6, Sharks 5
TAMPA, Fla. — Martin St.
Louis scored his second goal of
the game 4:27 into overtime,
Steven Stamkos had two goals
and two assists in his 300th
NHL game, and the Tampa Bay
Lightning beat the San Jose
Sharks.
St. Louis got the winner
from close range off a pass
from Victor Hedman.
Stamkos has 158 goals and
298 points overall. Teddy Pur-
cell and Steve Downie had the
other Tampa Bay goals.
The Pacific Division-leading
Sharks got goals from Logan
Couture, Michal Handzus,
Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Colin
White and Tommy Wingels,
who got San Jose even at 5
during a 2-on-1 with 5:10 re-
maining in the third.
Stamkos made it 4-4 on his
league-leading 39th goal from
the slot 2:44 into the third. St.
Louis gave the Lightning a 5-4
lead when his shot from along
the goal-line went off a San
Jose defender and past goalie
Antti Niemi.
Blues 5, Islanders 1
ST. LOUIS — Andy McDo-
nald scored his first goal of the
season, and T.J. Oshie had goal
and an assist in the St. Louis
Blues’ victory over the New
York Islanders.
Kevin Shattenkirk, Jason
Arnott and David Perron also
scored, and Alex Pietrangelo
had three assists to help the
Blues move within three points
of NHL-leading Detroit with 77
points.
Brian Elliott made 26 saves,
allowing only Frans Nielsen’s
goal.
Jets 4, Wild 3
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Evander
Kane had two goals in regu-
lation and the winner in the
fourth round of a shootout,
lifting the Winnipeg Jets to a
victory over the Minnesota
Wild.
Wild goalie Niklas Back-
strom stopped two of the first
three shots he saw in the shoo-
tout, but he fell to 3-5 this
season and 15-29 in his career
in those situations. The Wild
ended their streak of four regu-
lation losses in a row, but they
fell to 5-17-5 in their last 27
games.
Kane has four goals in five
games for the Jets since return-
ing from injury and 21 for the
season. He upstaged Devin
Setoguchi, who had his first
two-goal game for the Wild,
who scored on their first shot
of each period.

“His nickname ‘The Kid’ cap-
tured howGary approached life,”
the Mets said in a statement. “He
did everything with enthusiasm
and with gusto on and off the
field. His smile was infectious. ...
He was a Hall of Famer in every-
thing he did.”
Carter played nearly two dec-
ades with the Mets, Montreal,
San Francisco and the Los An-
geles Dodgers. He led the Expos
to their only playoff berth and was
the first player enshrined in Coo-
perstown wearing an Expos cap.
“Gary was one of the happiest
guys in the world every day,”
Mets teammate Mookie Wilson
once said.
Carter was known as much for
his effervescent personality as his
talents. He earned his nickname
as an eager teen in his first major
league camp and the label stuck
for the rest of his career, and
beyond.
“An exuberant on-field general
with a signature smile who was
known for clutch hitting and
rock-solid defense over 19 sea-
sons,” reads his Hall plaque.
He was especially pumped
during the biggest moment of his
career. The powerful Mets were
down to their last chance in the
‘86 Series when Carter stepped
up with two outs. No one was on
base and NewYork was trailing
Boston 5-3 in the bottomof the
10th inning in Game 6.
Carter said he had just one
thought in mind: “I wasn’t going
to make the last out of the World
Series.”
True to his word, he delivered a
clean single to left field off Red
Sox reliever Calvin Schiraldi.
Kevin Mitchell followed with a
single and when Ray Knight also
singled, Carter scampered home
fromsecond base.
As Carter crossed the plate, he
clapped his hands, pointed at
Wilson on deck and clapped
again. Moments later, Bill Buckn-
er’s error scored Knight for an
amazing 6-5 win. Carter rushed
fromthe dugout to join the cele-
bration at home plate, catcher’s
gear already on.
Overshadowed by the rally was
the fact that Carter had tied the
game with a sacrifice fly in the
eighth. Then in Game 7, Carter
drove in the tying run in the sixth
inning, and the Mets went on to
win their most recent champion-
ship.
Carter homered twice over the
Green Monster at Fenway Park in
Game 4 and totaled nine RBIs in
that Series. Since then, only two
players have gotten more in a
World Series (Mike Napoli for
Texas in 2011and Sandy Alomar
Jr. for Cleveland in1997 each had
10).
Overall, Carter hit .262 with
324 home runs and1,225 RBIs
with the Expos, Mets, San Fran-
cisco and the Los Angeles Dodg-
ers. He set the major league re-
cord for putouts by a catcher, a
testament to his durability de-
spite nine knee operations.
“Driven by a remarkable enthu-
siasmfor the game, Gary Carter
became one of the elite catchers
of all-time,” Commissioner Bud
Selig said in a statement. “Like all
baseball fans, I will always re-
member his leadership for the ‘86
Mets and his pivotal role in one of
the greatest World Series ever
played.”
Carter twice was the MVPof
the All-Star game. He won the
award in1981by homering twice
in baseball’s first game after a
players’ strike that lasted two
months. He remains the lone
player to have a two-homer per-
formance in an All-Star game and
a World Series game.
He set the NLrecord for games
caught, but spent his first full
season in the majors primarily as
Montreal’s right fielder. His first
All-Star appearance came that
year, in1975, as a defensive re-
placement in left field for Pete
Rose.
Carter was recognized, too, for
his contributions off the field
when he was honored with the
Roberto Clemente Award.
He hit his first major league
homer in September 1974 off
future Hall of Famer Steve Carl-
ton as a 20-year-old rookie —
Carter homered11times against
the ace lefty, his top victim.
Carter spent his first 11years
with the Expos and was part of a
solid core that put theminto the
1981playoffs. They beat the de-
fending champion Philadelphia
Phillies in a newfirst round cre-
ated after the strike split the
season into two halves, but lost to
the Dodgers in the NLchampion-
ship series.
Aperennial fan favorite, Carter
returned to Montreal in1992 for
one final season. His last swing
was a memorable one —he hit an
RBI double in the seventh inning
at Olympic Stadium, left for a
pinch-runner to a huge ovation
fromthe home crowd and walked
away after that 1-0 win over the
Cubs.
Carter was elected to the Hall
in 2003 on his sixth try. He had
joked that he wanted his Cooper-
stown cap to be a half-and-halfer,
split between the Expos and
Mets. The Hall makes the ulti-
mate call on the logo.
Carter pleased Canadian fans
by delivering part of his induction
speech in French. Born and raised
in California, he took a Berlitz
course to help himlearn the lan-
guage after the Expos drafted
him.
The Expos traded himto the
Mets after the1984 season for
Hubie Brooks, Mike Fitzgerald,
HermWinninghamand Floyd
Youmans. Carter turned out to be
one of the last missing pieces on a
NewYork teamthat already had
the likes of Darryl Strawberry,
Dwight Gooden and Keith Her-
nandez.
Carter stayed in baseball after
his playing days ended. He be-
came a broadcaster for the Flor-
ida Marlins, coached and man-
aged for the Mets in the minors,
managed two independent minor
league teams and coached in
college.

NEW YORK — With Gio
Gonzalez, Clayton Kershaw
and Pablo Sandoval getting the
steepest increases, the overall
rise of salaries for players in ar-
bitration slowed to its lowest
level since 2007.
The 142 players who filed for
arbitration last month aver-
aged a 112 percent increase, ac-
cording to a study of agree-
ments by The Associated
Press. That was down from an
average jump of 123 percent
last year and was the lowest in-
crease since a 106 percent rise
in 2007.
Gonzalez, acquired by Wash-
ington in a trade with the Oak-
land Athletics, received a 20-
fold increase from $420,000 to
an average of $8.4 million in a
$42 million, five-year contract
with the Nationals.
Kershaw, the NL Cy Young
Award winner, got a 19-fold in-
crease from $500,000 to an av-
erage of $9.5 million as part of
a $19 million, two-year con-
tract with the Los Angeles
Dodgers.
Sandoval received the high-
est percentage raise among po-
sition players. After earning
$500,000 last year for the San
Francisco Giants, the third
baseman agreed to a $17.15
million, three-year contract
that averages $5.7 million, an
11-fold hike.
Pitcher Andrew Bailey, trad-
ed from Oakland to the Boston
Red Sox, received the highest
percentage raise among play-
ers agreeing to one-year con-
tracts, an eight-fold increase
from $465,000 to $3.9 million.
Just 11 players received mul-
tiyear contracts, down from 14
last year and the fewest since
nine in 2004.
The only players whose sala-
ries went down were Milwau-
kee reliever Francisco Rodri-
guez, who went from an aver-
age of $12.7 million in a three-
year contract to $8 million; and
Chicago Cubs third baseman
Ian Stewart, who dropped
$50,000 to $2,237,500.
The average of this year’s
group rose from $1.95 million
to $3.7 million, while the aver-
age for the 119 players in arbi-
tration last winter increased
from$1.68 million to $3.76 mil-
lion. The total of players in ar-
bitration this year were the
most since 150 in 1992.
For multiyear contracts, fig-
ures include average annual
values. For 2011, earned bonus-
es were included.
About a half-dozen more
players will become eligible for
arbitration next year, when eli-
gibility increases slightly for
players with two to three years
of major league service, from
the top 17 percent by service
time to the top 22 percent.
They join unsigned players
with at least three, but less
than six years of service.
Pittsburgh defeated Garrett
Jones in the final decision
Thursday, and the outfielder
will receive the team’s offer of
$2.25 million rather than his
request for $2.5 million.
Teams finished with a 5-2 ad-
vantage in arbitration deci-
sions this year, their 14th win-
ning record in 16 years. The
seven hearings were more than
double the total last year, when
players won two of three cases.
Both players who won this
year were on the Miami Mar-
lins: pitcher Anibal Sanchez
and infielder-outfielder Emilio
Bonifacio.
In addition to Jones, four
pitchers lost in arbitration:
Washington’s John Lannan,
Tampa Bay’s Jeff Niemann,
Milwaukee’s Jose Veras and
Baltimore’s Brad Bergesen.
Deals slow down
arbitration salaries
Multi-year agreements take
some players out of the
bartering process for raises.

Table game winnings soar
There were more table games oper-
ating at Pennsylvania’s 10 casinos in
January than a year earlier, and on
average each one brought in more
winnings. The state Gaming Control
Board said Friday that table game
revenue in January was $53 million, up
from $43.3 million in January 2011.
There were 962 games operating in
January, compared to 841 a year earlier.
Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs
reported 84 tables in both periods, but
January 2012 revenue was up by 30.5
percent, to $4.3 million.
At Mount Airy Casino Resort, the
revenue from 72 tables was $3.7 mil-
lion, a 23.4 percent increase from Janu-
ary 2011.
The state collected $8.6 million in
taxes on the casinos’ winnings.
Jobless claims fall again
The number of people seeking unem-
ployment benefits fell to the lowest
point in almost four years last week,
the latest signal that the job market is
steadily improving.
Weekly applications for unemploy-
ment benefits dropped 13,000 to a
seasonally adjusted 348,000, the Labor
Department said Thursday. It was the
fourth drop in five weeks and the few-
est claims since March 2008.
The four-week average fell for the
fifth straight week to 365,250.
Sears cuts HQ jobs
Sears laid off 100 workers at its head-
quarters outside of Chicago on Thurs-
day, two months after the company got
a hefty tax credit for dropping a threat
to move its headquarters out of state.
Sears Holding Corp. spokesman
Chris Brathwaite said the job cuts do
not violate the terms of a $150 million
tax credit for Sears approved by the
Illinois legislature in December after
the company threatened to move its
headquarters out of Illinois.
China growth to slow
China may set its lowest annual
growth target in eight years as author-
ities place less emphasis on the pace of
expansion and the global economy
remains weak, the chief economist at
the government-run State Information
Center said Thursday.
Premier Wen Jiabao may announce a
7 percent or 7.5 percent target for eco-
nomic growth this year. The last time
China set a growth target below 8
percent was in 2004.

THE TIMES LEADER FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2012

NEW YORK -- CSX Corp.’s
projected 40 percent gain
this year in deliveries of
fracking sand used for natu-
ral gas drilling may blunt a
decline in coal shipments,
the biggest commodity busi-
ness for North American
railroads.
Sand shipments matching
the forecast would be the
second annual gain of that
magnitude for CSX, which is
hauling fewer coal carloads
as some utilities switch fuel
sources to take advantage of
a 60 percent slide in natural
gas prices since early 2010.
Sand is used in hydraulic
fracturing, or fracking, the
technology now unlocking
previously unavailable gas
supplies in shale deposits
such as the Marcellus forma-
tion in Northeastern Penn-
sylvania. Moving sand, pipe
and other drilling equip-
ment gives carriers such as
CSX, the largest U.S. eastern
railroad, new cargo as coal
customers scale back.
Shale gas is “contributing
mightily to all these stories
about the end of the age of
coal,” said Tony Hatch, an
independent railroad ana-
lyst in New York. “The very
same things that are affect-
ing this change in coal are
helping grow other things.”
Moving fracking sand into
the Marcellus shale region,
which stretches from New
York to Tennessee, is “a
great growth opportunity
for us,” CSX Chief Executive
Officer Michael Ward said in
an interview last month. His
company’s fracking-sand
carloads grew over 40 per-
cent to more than 12,000 in
2011.
While Rival Norfolk
Southern doesn’t break out
data for sand, the rail’s total
carloads for the Marcellus
Shale region rose 67 percent
to 40,000 last year from
2010.
Deliveries of pipe and oth-
er drilling-related goods are
increasing along with ship-
ments of fracking sand,
whose most highly prized
pure-quartz variety is mined
in such places as Arkansas
and Texas, then used to hold
open shale fractures for gas
extraction. Coal still ac-
counts for at least twice as
large a portion of North
American commodity car-
loads as any other category.
To keep abreast of changes
in their mix of coal and gas-
drilling cargo shipments,
railroads are investing in ca-
pacity for both.
CSX purchased about 900
cube hoppers, freight cars
used for fracking sand, last
year, Ward said. Norfolk
Southern is allocating some
of its planned $346 million
in 2012 spending on new
freight cars for fracking sand
and coal, CEO Wick Moor-
man said.
Gas field shipments boosting railroads

WASHINGTON — Construction
of single-family homes cooled slight-
ly inJanuary after surging inthe final
month last year. But a rise in permits
suggests builders are growing more
confident that more buyers are ready
to come off the sidelines.
The Commerce Department said
Thursday that construction work be-
gan on 508,000 single-family homes
last month. That’s a 1 percent drop
from December and the first decline
in four months.
A big rise in volatile apartment
construction helped offset the de-
cline in single-family homes.
Still, December figures were re-
vised up strongly to show builders
started 513,000 single-family homes
—a 12 percent gain fromNovember.
And building permits, a gauge of
future construction, rose 0.7percent.
The majority of those permits
were for single-family homes.
It can take 12 months for a builder
to obtain a permit and construct a
single-family home.
Single-family home construction
rose in each of the final three months
of last year, bringing the pace of
those starts to the highest level since
April 2010.
The modest but steady gains
helped boost confidence among
builders after the worst year for sin-
gle-family home construction on re-
cord.
Many builders are seeing more
people express interest in buying a
home, leading them to believe 2012
could be a turn-around year for the
market. Mortgage rates have never
been cheaper. And home sales start-
ed to rise at the end of last year.

DETROIT — General Motors
earned its largest profit ever in 2011,
two years after it nearly collapsed.
Strong sales in the U.S. and China
helped the carmaker turn a profit of
$7.6 billion, beating its old record of
$6.7 billion in 1997 during the pick-
up and SUV boom.
GM is a vastly different company
than it was back then. It’s smaller,
has less debt and its contract with
the United Auto Workers is less cost-
ly. But it took a $49.5 billion govern-
ment bailout andbankruptcy protec-
tion in 2009 to cut its bloated costs.
The company earned a huge profit
even though U.S. car and truck sales
were near a historic low of 12.8 mil-
lion.
In2012, GMexpects toincreaseits
revenue as global sales grow and it
charges more for models.
Its ongoing effort to cut costs and
take advantage of its global presence
are also paying off. In the fourth
quarter, costs fell by $500 million. It
saved $100 million by cutting some
of the dozens of advertising agencies
and media managers it uses. It also
saved $100 million by centralizing
engineering.
LateWednesday, GMsaidit would
freeze its U.S. pension plan for long-
time white-collar workers and give
all salariedemployees annual bonus-
es but not pay raises.
That’s good news for the U.S. gov-
ernment, which still owns 26.5 per-
cent of the company and needs the
stock price to rise significantly be-
foreit canrecoupall thebailout mon-
ey.
Still, problems emerged for GM
late last year. Its fourth-quarter prof-
it fell 8 percent and missed Wall
Street expectations.

Personal Training For Everyone
I decided to seek help from a trainer after all my failed efforts to get motivated and back to the
gym. Going shopping for a wedding dress was fast approaching and I gained about 30 lbs.
over the spring and summer months. I knew I had to do something so I bought some other
diet plans off of infomercials and nothing seemed to get me motivated to stick with it.
When I went to the sales team at Odyssey, they matched me up with Mary Majikes. From
the frst consultation, Mary was professional and genuinely wanted to help me meet my goals.
I decided to buy 12 sessions and meet with Mary once a week. During the time I spent with
Mary she stayed focused on what my needs were to lose weight. She gave me tons of advice
on weight training, eating clean and ways to keep motivated. I knew Mary was invested in
helping me when she started to send me texts to give me advice on different supplements,
ways to use faxseeds, whey protein, etc. Mary would also send me texts to see how I was
doing with my exercise plans during the week to make sure I was on track. Every week I
noticed that I was getting stronger by the amount of weights I was able to lift and my cardio
endurance was getting better as well. I also started to enjoy spin class again.
While training with Mary I lost 25lbs, 8% body fat, and 20 inches. I would recommend
Mary to anyone who is looking to get back into shape or to mix things up if you’re lacking
motivation. Mary is passionate in what she does and is very knowledgeable of her industry.
I went to other gyms before and the trainers would use the same workouts on all their clients
and would not spend the time on the nutrition aspect of losing weight. Mary spends the time
to create workouts specifcally to her client needs and gives nutrition advice based on their
lifestyle. - Krissy Cesari

Feb. 21 Feb. 29 March 8 March 14
Just a day or so
ago there were
some raised eye-
brows here in
the weather cen-
ter when there
was evidence
showing the
potential for a
major coastal
snow stormhere
on Sunday.
Since then we've
been keeping a
nervous eye on
each run of the
many computer
models we use
to guide our
thinking. The
past few runs
have given us
reason to believe
the stormwill
slide by just to
our south and
miss us. A cold
front in the
northern jet
stream could
bring a snow
shower here
Saturday night,
and that front
may help to
steer the storm
more toward the
east and out to
sea.
- Tom Clark
NATIONAL FORECAST: Showers and thunderstorms will be likely along much of the Gulf Coast today
as a storm system takes shape over northern Mexico. Expect rain and mountain snow across parts of
the Desert Southwest in addition to the Pacific Northwest. Showers will depart New England in the
morning as a front exits the coast.
