Wilkes grad recalls her desperate flight By BILL O’BOYLE [email protected] Millions of people were transfixed watching televised reports as the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks unfolded in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania. Thousands in New York City that day were close enough to feel and smell the smoke and dust spewing from the twin towers of the World Trade Center. Yoshiko Shoji Reeves couldn’t have been any closer.

Terrorists – fanatical and deranged and willing to die – hijacked four commercial airlines intent on crashing into icons of democracy and capitalism. The World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon were targets. Passengers fought back on the fourth flight, which crashed near Shanksville, Pa. Office workers, police, firefighters, transit authority personnel, passengers and pedestrians: Nearly 3,000 died. But 10 years later, a country’s spirit remains. Starting today and continuing through next Sunday, The Times Leader will bring you the stories of local people who were touched by the attacks and the following days of fear and recovery. Some witnessed the destruction, others quickly A day that changed America forever By DAVID GOLDSTEIN McClatchy Newspapers A changed America: Sept. 11 has made an indelible impact on the American psyche.

Sept. 11, 2001 carries a unique meaning for each of them, as it does for everyone who is old enough to remember the sight of our nation under attack. Other stories this week will recount how the response to the attacks has changed local fire and police departments, air travel and even the population of the region.

Reeves was working on the tower’s 80th floor the day of the terrorist attack. When young Dolores Sigismondi’s father, Mose, suffered an injury while working in the mines in the late 1930s, the consequences could have been devastating for the Luzerne family, which included seven children. Most of the social legislation we take for granted today was still on the Washington drawing board at that point in the Great Depression, and the nation’s unemployment rate stood at about 20 percent.

Authorities say there is no specific or credible terrorist threat for the 10-year anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. But they have stepped up security nationwide as a precaution. According to a five-page law enforcement bulletin issued Friday, as recently as early this year, al-Qaida was considering ways to attack airplanes. The alert, issued ahead of the summer’s last busy travel weekend, said terrorists have considered renting private planes and loading them with explosives. "Al-Qaida and its affiliates have maintained an interest in obtaining aviation training, particularly on small aircraft, and in recruiting Western individuals for training in Europe or the United States, although we do not have current, credible information or intelligence of an imminent attack being planned," according to the bulletin obtained by The Associated Press. The bulletin also says al-Qaida would like to use sympathetic Westerners to get flight training, then get them to become flight instructors. Matthew Chandler, a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security, described the bulletin as routine. "We shared this information with our partners to highlight the need for continued awareness and vigilance," he said. Aviation security is much tighter than it was a decade ago, but al-Qaida remains keenly interested in launching attacks on airplanes, believing large attacks with high body counts are more likely to grab headlines. Threats to small airplanes are nothing new. After the 2001 attacks, the government grounded thousands of crop dusters amid fears the planes could be used in an attack. In 2002, U.S. officials said they uncovered an al-Qaida plot to fly a small plane into a U.S. warship in the Persian Gulf. And in 2003, U.S. officials uncovered an al-Qaida plot to crash an explosives-laden small aircraft into the American consulate in Karachi, Pakistan. Associated Press writer Matt Apuzzo contributed to this report.

Obama on Saturday ordered federal aid to supplement state and local recovery efforts after the heavy winds, rain and flooding from Aug. 26 to Aug. 30. The federal funding will be available to state and local governments and some nonprofits for emergency work and repair in five Pennsylvania counties. They include Chester, Northampton, Sullivan, Susquehanna and Wyoming. The Federal Emergency Management Agency says more counties could receive assistance after additional assessments are made. FEMA officials toured Luzerne County on Friday to determine whether it will be eligible for federal assistance under the declaration. Gov. Tom Corbett had requested federal disaster aid for the state, citing more than $32 million in damage in four northeastern counties and as-yet untotaled losses in at least nine others. The storm killed five people in Pennsylvania. BUILDING TRUST The Times Leader strives to correct errors, clarify stories and update them promptly. Corrections will appear in this spot.

I don’t want to be upset. I know it can’t be helped, but it’s been six days and we’re not getting any answers, and yeah, I’m mad.” They said the utility has not taken adequate steps to inform customers of when their power might be turned back on and UGI customer service representatives have not been able to provide See POWER, Page 6A FRED ADAMS/FOR THE TIMES LEADER Jim Faulls complains about UGI’s lack of communication to UGI Northern Region Vice President Robert Stoyko at Lake-Lehman High School Saturday.

"We’re excited to be hosting the Amtrak Bomb Squad this weekend," added Brennan. "With the 9/11 anniversary coming up in a few days, it’s especially timely." Brennan said the bomb squad, which traveled from Amtrak’s Syracuse hub, will perform demonstrations of its crucial skills throughout the weekend. Sports injury clinic offered This fall, student-athletes who wake up on Saturday morning with injuries from games or practices on Friday have an alternative option for expert medical care. Saturday Morning Sports Injury Clinics for athletes will be offered at the Adult Urgent Care Center at Geisinger South Wilkes-Barre, a campus of Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center. Clinics will begin Saturday, Sept. 10, and be held each Saturday from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. through Nov. 5. “Many young athletes sustain new injuries or aggravate existing injuries during competition on Friday, and they need care on Saturday when physicians’ offices are closed,” said David Ross, M.D., a sports medicine specialist and director of the clinic. “The Saturday morning clinic gives athletes the option to be seen by sports medicine physicians who are highly experienced in caring for athletes.” Dr. Ross added that appointments are not required when visiting the Geisinger Sports Injury Clinic, and most Geisinger Urgent Care patients are treated and discharged within 90 minutes of arrival. “Waiting an entire weekend to be treated for an injury can be dangerous and lead to unnecessary complications,” said Dr. Ross. The Adult and Pediatric Urgent Care Centers at Geisinger South WilkesBarre are open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

WASHINGTON — Congress returns to work this coming week, divided over measures to create jobs and scorned by the nation it was elected to help lead. After a five-week break, Republican and Democratic leaders alike promise action to try and ease the country’s 9.1 per- cent unemployment rate and boost an economy that is barely growing. President Barack Obama goes first on Thursday night with a speech to lawmakers and a prime-time national television audience. But there is little overlap so far in the measures that Republicans and Democrats are recommending, and the rest of the year-end congressional agenda is top-heavy with items that relate to government spending and less directly to job creation. A new committee, comprised of lawmakers in both parties from both houses and armed with extraordinary powers, is expected to hold its first meeting this week as it begins work on a plan to make long-term deficit cuts. The panel was created as part of last month’s agreement to reduce red ink and avert a government default. It faces a Nov. 23 deadline for action. More immediately, parts of the Federal Aviation Administration will shut down on Sept. 16 unless Congress approves a measure to keep operations running.

Man gets life for slayings A North Carolina man has been sentenced to spend the rest of his life behind bars for killing eight people at a rural nursing home. Robert Stewart was sentenced Saturday to spend between roughly 16 and 20 years in prison for each of the murders, with the sentences running consecutively. That would put the overweight 47-year-old in prison for between 128 and 160 years. Judge James Webb added up to 22 years, stemming from assault and firearms charges, which will also be consecutive. After two days of deliberation, the jury convicted Stewart of second-degree murder for shooting and killing seven elderly residents and a nurse at Pinelake Health and Rehabilitation Center on March 29, 2009. Stewart’s lawyers say he plans to appeal. VATICAN CITY Vatican rejects criticism The Vatican on Saturday vigorously rejected claims it sabotaged efforts by Irish bishops to report priests who sexually abused children to police and accused the Irish prime minister of making an “unfounded” attack against the Holy See. Irish officials defended their claims that the Vatican exacerbated the abuse crisis and criticized the Holy See for offering an overly “legalistic” justification of its actions in dealing with priests who rape and molest children. The Vatican issued a 24-page response to the Irish government following Prime Minister Enda Kenny’s unprecedented July 20 denunciation of the Vatican’s handling of abuse — a speech that cheered abuse-weary Irish Catholics but stunned the Vatican and prompted it to recall its ambassador. NEW YORK Strauss-Kahn leaves home Former International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn has left his New York City town home and may be headed back to his native France. Strauss-Kahn, his wife and daughter left the rented house Saturday afternoon, carrying luggage. He didn’t say where he was going, but French media have reported he was expected to board a plane to Paris on Saturday. It would be the one-time French presidential contender’s first return home since he was arrested in New York in May when a Guinean hotel maid accused him of trying to rape her. Prosecutors dropped the sexual assault charges against him last week. They said they no longer trusted the maid. She continues to press her claims in a lawsuit. Strauss-Kahn denies the allegations. He resigned from the IMF days after his arrest. AP PHOTO A couple stands at the Hill of Crosses at a Lithuanian national pilgrimage site near the city of Siauliai, Lithuania, Saturday.

Tropical Storm Lee hits Gulf Workers hand off sandbags to stop floodwaters from Bayou Barataria from encroaching on homes and businesses in the town of Jean Lafitte, La. By MARY FOSTER Associated Press JEAN LAFITTE, La. — Bands of heavy rain and strong wind gusts from Tropical Storm Lee knocked out power to thousands in south Louisiana and Mississippi on Saturday and prompted evacuations in bayou towns like Jean Lafitte, where water lapped at several front doors. The sluggish storm stalled just before making landfall, and threatened to dump more than a foot of rain across the northern Gulf Coast and into the Southeast in coming days. No injuries were reported and there were only scattered reports of water entering low-lying homes and businesses. The center of the slow-moving storm was about 45 miles southwest of Morgan City, La., Saturday afternoon, spinning intermittent bands of stormy weather, alternating with light rain and occasional AP PHOTO sunshine. Its maximum sustained winds were 60 mph. The National Weather Service in Slidell reported two-day rain totals approaching 9 inches in parts of south Louisiana and more than 5 inches near the Mississippi coast. Meteorologist Mike Shields said the storm continued to move slowly and forecasts still said rain totals along the coast could reach 10 to 15 inches, even 20 in isolated spots. PITTSBURGH — Big industry may be coming back to the northeast United States. Shell Oil Co. is nearing a decision on where in the Appalachians to build a huge new petrochemical refinery — a project that could bring thousands of jobs and change the face of the region for decades. The plans are driven by the gas reserves discovered in the Marcellus Shale. The scale of the multibillion-dollar project is unlike anything seen for decades in the region, said David Hounshell, a professor of technology and social change at Carnegie Mellon University. Shell spokeswoman Kelly op de Weegh said the company plans to decide by the end of the year where to build the plant, which would convert natural gas liquids to other chemicals. The complex would likely attract many smaller, specialized chemical plants, since the main product, ethylene, is used to make chemicals that go into everything from plastics to tires to antifreeze, according to the American Chemistry Council. The council estimated the complex could attract up to $16 billion in private investment and create more than 17,000 jobs and billions in tax revenue. Other U.S. and overseas companies are also considering similar projects in the region.

Moses said when he realized the error, he immediately drove to Roberts’ office and apologized. He also apologized to Assistant District Attorney Michael T. Vough, who is prosecuting McCann. McCann is charged in the vehicular homicide death of Aloysius McLaughlin, 63, on Third Avenue, Kingston, on June 30. McLaughlin was kneeling on the sidewalk close to the road doing landscaping work when he was struck from behind, Vough alleged. Investigators allege McCann had cocaine and prescription medications in her blood stream when she allegedly struck McLaughlin.

POWER Continued from Page 3A Donna Smith of Lehman Township. “I just want to call my insurance agency and say give me the check. I’m through; I’m done here. If one more thing happens I’m going to lose it, and all I want is my power restored.” UGI Northern Division Vice President Robert Stoyko said UGI has had difficulty connecting with customers because, without power, most have not had phone service, and the reports about inadequate customer service took him by surprise. But he added that the intent of Saturday’s meeting was to collect information with customers to aid in power restoration. Stoyko said Irene did “unprecedented” damage to UGI’s distribution system – worse than that caused by Hurricane Agnes in 1972 – and admitted the storm caught UGI off guard. “It wasn’t handled properly. I’m taking responsibility for that,” Stoyko said. “…We have never had to deal with a storm of this magnitude before.” He said the storm affected five of UGI’s main transmission lines in the storm, one third of the sys- FRED ADAMS/FOR THE TIMES LEADER Duane Evans expresses frustration about being without power for nearly a week at a meeting with UGI representatives.

Those were back online by Tuesday, and the company then turned to restoring power to the major feeder lines branching off those mains, then to feeder lines serving smaller numbers of homes. Stoyko said all but two of the major feeder lines had been restored Saturday morning and that both should be up and running by tonight. “The way we approach restoration is we try to get as many customers online at a time as possible,” Stoyko said. More than 32,000 of UGI’s 62,000 customers lost power following the storm, and that by Saturday morning power had been restored to all but 1,076. For most of those without power, the problem is in the smaller service lines that supply power to anywhere from one to a handful of homes. Stoyko said the utility hopes to have power restored to “99 percent” of its Luzerne County customers by Tuesday, but said he couldn’t say when the utility would finish repairing all the damages to its system. “The problem is, every time W S THE TIMES LEADER CHARLOTTE BARTIZEK/FOR THE TIMES LEADER A set of Belgian draft horses, Mitch and Duke, is hitched up for logging by Jim Axtell, of Lennox, to work at The Lands at Hillside Farms. resident craftsman Gary Kroll, which will include book shelves, benches and rocking chairs, as well as a complete line of locally crafted merchandise.

He said the company has 50 linemen working to restore power and has 15 more linemen from Delaware scheduled to join them Tuesday. The company has about 100 total staff members and contractors working 14 to 18 hours a day on restoration, he said. Others complained of power lines left on the ground or dangling from poles and trees. State Rep. Karen Boback, RHarveys Lake, and state Sen. Lisa Baker, R-Lehman Township, attended the meeting and offered suggestions to UGI. Boback said the automated answering service for UGI’s customer service line is confusing, and suggested they modify the system to provide updates about restoration work as soon as the customer is connected. She also asked UGI to tell customers to switch off their circuit breakers prior to power restoration, as failing to do so could we go out and repair a feeder line, we find new problems,” he said. “Clearly, we see additional service line outages taking us into next week, and hopefully we’ll have that taken care of by the end of the week.” Some customers also questioned UGI’s readiness for the storm, especially given that the county’s other electricity provider, PPL Electric Utilities, had already restored power to all customers in the county by Saturday. Mike Giamber, of Ross Township, asked why UGI did not seek to place contractors on standby before the storm. “As far as I’m concerned, you guys were not prepared for this. Now you’re trying to play catchup,” Giamber said. “If you waited to Tuesday to call people in from out of state you were too late by about four days and now you can’t get anybody because they’re all working somewhere else. We’re left out.” Stoyko reiterated that UGI did not expect the storm to be as da- short circuit major appliances. Stoyko confirmed it is advisable to do so as a precaution. Baker added she has received numerous complaints from her constituents that UGI has not adequately trimmed trees near power lines in recent years. Both legislators requested that UGI send updates about their planned restoration work for the day to their district offices and to local municipal offices daily to keep residents without power in the loop. “People don’t have power; they don’t have phones, so they’re just stopping by,” Baker said. “If they could post it people would have some idea of what you’re doing.” ROOF SPECIALIST YEAR ROUND Mister “V” Construction NEED A NEW ROOF?

To her, it will always be the World Trade Center. Armstrong, 50, won’t be in New York City next weekend to observe the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the iconic twin towers. She said when she goes there she looks at the other people and wonders. “I wonder what ring of hell they were in on 9/11,” Armstrong said. “I think of the innocent people that died; people who didn’t do anything to warrant dying like that.” Armstrong was getting off a bus in Battery Park on 9/11 when she looked up and saw an airplane flying very low. “Boy, that’s weird,” she thought. The plane plowed into one of the towers and downtown Manhattan became a war zone. Armstrong said she has a very strong visual memory of the scene, but for reasons she can’t explain, she has no recollection of sounds from that day. But the visual memories are graphic and Armstrong won’t – can’t – ever forget. “I saw people in the towers holding hands and jumping out to their death,” Armstrong said. “I can’t imagine what it was like for them. When you see that, you realize how short and how precious life is.” Those images, those memories are why Armstrong gave up her career and followed her dream back home to open Dress for Success, providing clothes CLARK VAN ORDEN/THE TIMES LEADER Linda Armstrong and fellow workers made their way out of the city after the attacks of Sept 11.

Armstrong was working for Prudential Securities in Manhattan on Sept. 11, 2001. She remembers the scene – the people running and screaming, the falling cloud of ash, the fear. On the morning of 9/11, Armstrong and several co-workers left their building and started walking out of the city. They were on the Brooklyn Bridge covered in ash. “Everybody looked like statues,” she said. She kept thinking about her daughter, wondering if she was safe. Her uncertainty was compounded by the sight of airplanes flying above. She had no real concept of time. “We have to do all we can,” Armstrong said. “After something like 9/11, you wake up and realize there is a higher purpose. You realize everything you have could all be gone in a second. It makes you realize how temporary everything is.” Armstrong said 9/11 was a life-defining moment for her. She lives her life “out loud” and things that used to bother her don’t so much any more.“After two 110-story buildings get dropped on your head, nothing really upsets you,” she said. “People – all people – are more important to me now.” Armstrong will spend a quiet day on Sept. 11, 2011. She said she will fly an American flag and talk to friends who were on the Brooklyn Bridge with her. EST WYOMING – It was supposed to be a happy week for the Kasteleba family. John Kasteleba, now 65 of West Wyoming, was delivering new vehicles in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Sept. 11, 2001. His daughter, Suzanne, was getting married on Saturday, so he was anxious for the week to move along. Kasteleba was the first car carrier dispatched that day. He left his Newark terminal and headed to a Brooklyn car lot near the waterfront. Once there he started unloading his carrier. Other drivers from his terminal were arriving. He could clearly see the twin towersoftheWorldTradeCenter and he noticed black smoke coming from one of them. He and Kenny Fitzgerald, a co-worker, had heard that a small plane hit the tower. Kasteleba said his first thought was terrorism because herememberedthe1993attempt to blow up the WTC. “Kenny said the pilot probably had a heart attack,” Kasteleba said. “Then I realized this was a no-fly zone.” As he and Fitzgerald talked, Kasteleba heard a buzzing sound. He looked up and saw a red and silver jet losing altitude. He wondered what was going on as he watched the low-flying plane level out and head for the towers. “It made a banana turn and hit the building,” he said. “I just stood there. I couldn’t believe what I just saw. I thought we were going to be vaporized; that a nuclear bomb was on the plane.” Kasteleba said he heard a loud “boom” and saw flames and smoke. He and his co-workers got angry, he said. “We had just witnessed a piece of history – ugly history,” Kasteleba said, pausing as the emotion CLARK VAN ORDEN/THE TIMES LEADER John Kasteleba of West Wyoming breaks up as he recalls what he saw on Sept. 11, 2001.

People were jumping out of windows.” Kasteleba unloaded his carrier and headed out of the city and then home to West Wyoming. He remembers feeling helpless. He wondered if more planes would come. Was the country safe? His daily log book from that day has several entries about the event. Kasteleba still has the logs.

But for Kasteleba, the morningof9/11hauntshimtothisday. “I remember the next day there was no happiness,” he said. “Everybody was down. And to look at the New York skyline and not see those towers, well, that was strange; it still is.” Kasteleba said now every time he hears an airplane, he looks up and wonders where it’s headed. DAN PALEY AND BILL JENKINS DR. JOYCE MORANO Recalling her helpless feeling Friends W still can’t forget ILKES-BARRE – Dr. Joyce Morano and her colleagues stood at the ready on Sept. 11, 2001. The Staten Island University Hospital was placed on alert. A “Code Black” was issued summoning all employees to the facility. As many patients as possible were discharged to make room for the expected arrival of others after the terrorist attack on the twin towers of the World Trade Center in Manhattan. Morano and the entire hospital staff waited. And waited. And waited. But only two patients – burn victims – were brought and both later died. That was all the hospital saw that day. “There was nobody to help because they were all dead,” Morano said. “But the hardest part for us was when we were told we could go home. We knew we wouldn’t be needed.” Morano is from New York City. She grew up on Long Island. She attended St. John’s University and the State University of New York. She graduated from the Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn. At Staten Island Hospital she was program director of the Geriatrics Fellowship from 1996 to 2004. It was then she decided she’d had enough and took a job at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Plains Township. Morano dealt with conflicting feelings – being a health care professional she was taught to always be ready to help. But she felt helpless on 9/11 because there was nobody she could help. Morano remembers the chaos born of uncertainty and fear. Coworkers trying to reach family members who worked in the city. She remembers feeling that the innocent belief that America was invincible was smashed by the events of 9/11.

Below, Emergency workers look at the crater created when Flight 93 crashed near Shanksville, Pa. “There was nobody to help because they were all dead.” AP PHOTO In the weeks and months following the attacks, Morano remembers seeing fighter planes in the sky and troops in the streets. She watched the continuous convoy of trucks carrying debris from ground zero to the Fresh Kills Landfill. “All of those images contributed to my decision to leave and come here,” Morano said. “It was time for me to change jobs and I always wanted to work with veterans – the true heroes of our country.” Morano has been back to ground zero, but she doesn’t plan to return any time soon. She said she will quietly observe the remembrance of the 10th anniversary. “Freedom is precious, but it never comes free,” she said. Morano loves her job. She listens to veterans tell their “incredible stories.” “Heroes walk the halls at the VA,” she said. INGSTON – For Dan Paley and Bill Jenkins, it still feels like yesterday. The two lifelong friends were working in Manhattan on Sept. 11, 2011, so both experienced the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. They remember, but they don’t like to talk about it much. “Every time I hear the highpitched sound of a jet engine, it gives me a few jitters,” Paley said. “I remember that sound on 9/11. I saw a plane hit one of the towers. It made the most grotesque sound – like the building sucked the plane in and blew it out the other side. It was awful.” Jenkins and Paley, both 33, have been friends since grade school. In 2001, Jenkins worked at Goldman Sachs, two blocks from the World Trade Center. Paley was working for CIBC World Markets in an eight-story building across the street from the towers. Like many others, Paley didn’t know if more planes were coming – five,10, 20 or more could be on their way, he thought. He said pandemonium broke out and people were scattering in every direction. Paley knew he had to get out of town and fast. Before they left Manhattan, the friends tried to call each other, but cellular service was not available. They worried about each other. Both stayed in the city after 9/ 11. Stories by BILL O’BOYLE CLARK VAN ORDEN/THE TIMES LEADER Dan Paley, left, witnessed the second plane fly into the World Trade Center tower Sept 11. Bill Jenkins was also working in the city. Below, People run from the collapse of World Trade Center Tower Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001 in New York. “Every time I hear the highpitched sound of a jet engine, it gives me a few jitters.” Dan Paley AP PHOTO “It was actually therapeutic to be there,” Paley said. “I went to Yankees’ games and Giants’ games. It felt good to see President Bush throw out the first ball at a Yankee game.” Jenkins moved back to Northeastern Pennsylvania in 2003; Paley followed in 2004. They both now live in the Back Mountain – Paley in Shavertown and Jenkins in Lehman Township. Jenkins married, had three children and Paley has two children. Paley’s wife burned the clothes he wore on 9/11. Jenkins said with all that has happened in his life over the last 10 years, you would think it would be easy to forget that day. “Nobody that was there that day will ever forget what happened, what they saw and what they heard,” Jenkins said. “So many people died and the people trying to save lives also died.” For as much as they love New York City, neither Paley nor Jenkins wants to go back to ground zero. “I keep my memories to myself for quiet reflection,” Paley said. “We make it a happy day.” Last year, Paley and his wife took their children to Knoebel’s Amusement Park on 9/11. He said each year he plans something fun for the family rather than watch television replays of the events of 9/11. The memories are enough for the two friends. “We have this in common,” Paley said. “We can’t forget; we will never be able to forget. And we shouldn’t.” CMYK THE TIMES LEADER ➛ N E W SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2011 PAGE 9A O B S E R VA N C E S 9/11 Continued from Page 1A al-Qaida terrorists. Born in Japan, Reeves lived in Northeastern Pennsylvania from 1989 to 1996. She resided in Scranton while she attended Keystone Junior College then moved to Wilkes-Barre in 1991 to pursue her bachelor’s and MBA degrees at Wilkes University. By 2001, Reeves was working on the 80th floor of the North Tower at the World Trade Center for Shizouka Bank and she was there when the first plane struck the building. The story of her escape from the 110-story skyscraper reads like a Hollywood script, but it is real and Reeves shared it with The Times Leader Arriving for work On that Tuesday Reeves arrived at her office inside the World Trade Center just seconds before the first plane – American Airlines Flight 11 -- hit the North Tower at 8:46:26 a.m. She was walking toward her desk when the plane crashed somewhere a dozen flights above, between the 94th floor and 98th floor. The building lurched violently to one side and Reeves could barely keep from falling to the floor. She grabbed a surgical mask and flashlight that were in the emergency kit under her desk – prepared through corporate training and from living in Japan where earthquakes are frequent. Reeves also grabbed a hard hat and left her office. Suddenly a window blew out of her office. “I was stunned to see reams of paper, faxes, and note pads, floating down from the offices above us,” she said. “It reminded me of the victory parade for the Yankees when they won the World Series in 2000. But this confetti was much bigger and some of it was on fire. “The phone rang and I automatically answered it. The son of a colleague of mine was watching from another building near ours and he said that there was a big hole in the side of our tower. I still had no idea of what had happened. I transferred the caller to his mother and after she spoke with him, she said, ‘Let’s get out of here!’ I ran to the kitchen and soaked a piece of paper towel in the sink to hold to my face while I walked down the stairs. Seven of us then checked the hall for fire. No fire, but the hall was thick with white smoke.” Reeves and her co-workers started down the staircase to the 78th floor where they had to switch to a different stairwell. “We all were outwardly calm and I had no idea of what was going on inside of those around me, but inside I was shaking and my heart was racing,” she said. Reeves could feel her legs getting weak. When she reac- With readers eager for news of the ongoing tragedy, The Times Leader published this special edition on Sept. 11, 2001. It carried the information that four airliners had been hijacked after taking off from eastern airports and thousands of people killed in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa.. Accounts of the experiences of local people were also presented. AP PHOTO The twin towers of the World Trade Center burn behind the Empire State Building in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001 after terrorists crashed hijacked jetliners into them. hed the 50th floor, her cellular phone rang; it was her boyfriend Larry calling from his car. He could see the tower from the New Jersey turnpike. After she told him she was trying to get out of the building, Larry told Yoshiko that he loved her. He sounded sad, she said, as her phone went dead. DIANA MARIE COLLINS was just starting her college career at New York University when she walked out of class to the news that something – at that point unknown – had slammed into a tower of the World Trade Center. Like so many others, the Pittston native called her family to tell them she was all right and eventually made her way uptown, unsure if or where she would find safety. As soon as she could, she took a bus back home, where she struggled with the decision of whether to return to the stricken city. You can read Collins’ memoir of that time, “Living Through Fear: My Memory of 9/11,” at ‘Let’s go’ Ten more floors down Reeves saw a man covered in white ash. “He looked like a ghost,” she said. A young woman with long, dark brown hair, bleeding from both wrists was being escorted down by a man. His white shirt was drenched with blood. The woman was hysterical. Reeves would see the woman again – on the 20th floor sitting in the stairway, unable to go any farther. Reeves was still walking down the stairwell when the second plane – United Airlines Flight 175 – struck the South Tower at 9:02:54 a.m. She kept walking as firefighters rushed past on their way up. “They were all young and strong and sweating because of their uniforms and the equipment they carried,” she said. “How odd I thought: We were leaving and they were running up the stairs. Some of them looked nervous. As they went up, I heard them cheering each other on by calling out, ‘Let’s go!’” Reeves remembers a lot of water on the stairs, making them slippery and she stumbled, slid and fell down, but never stopped. As she reached the first floor she noticed some of the ceiling was missing and water was everywhere. And it was dark inside. Reeves looked out- side to the courtyard and noticed a beautiful fountain she used to visit had been destroyed. “My first thoughts were of a movie about a nuclear war and then I thought of photos that I’d seen of Hiroshima after the bomb,” she said. “At least five inches of gray, pasty, dusty, drywall soot covered the ground and a heavy fog of dust filled the air. Everything was black and white.” In a courtyard she saw twisted steel and wires everywhere. She was told not to look at the “terrible carnage,” but she did and saw human body parts. An hour before she had passed through this very spot she once found to be peaceful and filled with beauty. “To see it now was horrible and so sad,” Reeves said. “At this moment I also became aware of people jumping from the top of the tower. The sound of their bodies hitting the ground was loud and distinctive.” A tremendous rumbling Still inside, she and others were guided down to a lower level where a shopping mall was located. Fire sprinklers were in full operation and it was literally raining inside the mall. As she walked toward two co-workers in front of a Banana Republic Store, Reeves heard and felt “a tremendous rumbling.” The sound grew louder every second. The ground started to tremble and then violently shake. It was shortly before 10 a.m. and the South Tower was collapsing. Reeves began to chant a Buddhist prayer she had learned as a child. “It was an appeal for help that one uses in a time of great danger or distress,” she said. “In an instant all the lights in the mall went out and all the windows in the storefronts blew out on us. Flying glass was everywhere. The air became almost solid with black smoke and dust. I could not see my hands in front of my face. A huge powerful wind pushed me as I crouched over and found myself in the same position about 20 or 30 feet away without knowing how I got there. “The wind from the falling tower pushed all the air down through the hallways of the mall until it reached us. I thought this was how my world would end.” Reeves said the wind’s strength was “simply incredible.” She was covered with ashes bbdand powdery glass in various shades of gray.“I could not see, hear, smell or breathe,” she said. “For a split second I thought perhaps I was in heaven.” Reeves said there seemed to be an almost peaceful quality about everything. But her heart was racing so she knew she was still alive. Birthday gifts Reeves celebrated her 35th birthday on Sept. 10, 2001. Her friends had given her a scarf and a leather bag. Reeves was carrying her two birthday gifts as she evacuated. She used the scarf to wipe dust and dirt from her face and the large leather bag to protect her body. She now gathered her senses and tried to determine how to get out of the building. She heard the voice of a rescue worker who was outside, shouting “Come this way! Come this way!” Finally, Reeves found an exit. Firemen and police officers were yelling to everyone to start running away from the building. At 10:28 a.m., the North Tower collapsed. Reeves said she ran and entered a small building for shelter and rest. She stayed there for about 10 minutes and then she started walking uptown, away from the devastation.“I never looked back at the buildings. I just concentrated on getting as far away as possible,” she said.She walked into a Kmart store at Astor Place and 8th Street and waited to use a telephone to call her parents in Japan.a “My family knew I worked in the WTC so they thought I had been killed,” she said. “My sister answered the phone and asked me over and over ‘Is it really you?’ In shock, I had no feelings of emotion and no tears. Our conversation lasted about 40 seconds.” Reeves left the building and continued to walk for another 15 blocks. At Park Avenue and 23rd Street “a nice woman” let her use her phone “to call anywhere.” She wanted to reassure Larry that she was all right, but couldn’t get through. She met a friend and eventually talked to Larry. She saw imag- Here is a list of special events and activities commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.

She couldn’t return to her apartment, so she went to Larry’s place in Edgewater, N.J. arriving there at around 6 p.m. “after the longest day of my life.” The scarf Reeves used to protect her face was virtually untouched by the 9/11 experience, but her leather bag was burned and had tiny holes in it probably caused by flying glass. She still has both items. “These two birthday gifts protected me,” she said. “Miraculously, I had no wounds at all. Just a nose and lungs full of black soot.” Answered prayers Reeves and Larry were married and they live in Edgewater with their son, Thomas.Reeves now works for Panasonic in an office on the 10th floor of a building in Rockefeller Center in Manhattan. She still visits Northeastern Pennsylvania to continue the many friendships she made here during college. Regarding 9/11, Reeves believes her prayers were answered and she continues to remember the victims and their families. “I pray for the brave police officers, firemen, WTC security and office workers, who gave their lives trying to save others,” Reeves said. “Mayor Rudy Giuliani said that on Sept. 11 we saw the horror that humans can inflict on other humans, and at the same time witnessed the incredible capacity of people to put their own interests aside and help others.” Reeves says 9/11 left her with a deep sense of gratitude and love for all those who helped her and others. “And in one sense, what I experienced made me stronger, for it instilled in me an awareness of what is truly important or terrible and what is merely an inconvenience or a minor problem,” Reeves said. “I know that whatever challenges I face in the future I will be able to think back and say to myself ‘I made it through that day, so I can surely make it through this one, whatever it holds.’ ” SUBMITTED PHOTO Yoshiko Reeves draws praise from an old friend. Tragedy deepens bond of friends By BILL O’BOYLE [email protected] Dan Beky of WilkesBarre has been “best friends” with Yoshiko Shoji Reeves for more than 20 years. They used to work together and they talk regularly and visit each other often. “I’m planning on seeing her in New Jersey on Saturday,” Beky said. “I will take her vegetables from my garden.” Beky said Reeves is “one of the best people I have ever met on the planet.” He said she is a polite, caring, honest person who has compassion for her fellow man. “Even in the picture that was in Time Magazine, she’s helping another woman get to safety,” Beky said. “That’s how she is.” On Sept. 11, 2001 Beky frantically tried to reach his friend but didn’t talk to her until the following day. Beky’s cousin, Lori Bantel, attended classes with Reeves at Wilkes. “I read her story once,” Bantel said. “It’s so powerful; it really brings that day into perspective. But I can’t read it again.” Beky offered a personal story of how Reeves’ compassion touched his life. Beky was diagnosed with third stage esophageal cancer in 2006. Doctors gave him 90 days to live. His family – mother, father, and sister – had died of cancer within a three-year period before he was diagnosed. “I had no family and walked into the hospital to have major surgery with no one with me,” Beky said. “When I awoke from my surgery, guess what? Yoshiko was standing right next to me. She took a train from New York City to Philadelphia so I would not have to wake up alone.” Reeves said she came to the U.S. to attend college and was all alone. She could relate to how Beky was feeling in the hospital, so she made the trip to see her friend.

By MARC LEVY Associated Press HARRISBURG — Gov. Tom Corbett, who made a campaign pledge to oppose any increase in state fees or taxes, has had a month to digest the unsurprising conclusion from a hand-picked commission that taxes and fees must go up to address the deplorable condition of Pennsylvania’s roads, bridges and mass transit systems. Corbett, a Republican, has not tipped his hand as to which of those recommendations, if any, he’ll support, even though there is broad support for them in the business community, perhaps Corbett’s biggest ally. Time is ticking down if the Legislature is to take up the matter be- fore 2013. Legislators will be wary of voting to raise taxes in 2012, an election year, and they like governors to lead on Corbett sensitive issues by building support around the state — a campaign that can take months. For years now, Pennsylvania has lagged in its commitment to the upkeep of its roads, bridges and mass transit systems, and a multibillion-dollar backlog of repairs has resulted, transportation advocates say. On Aug. 23, Corbett’s transportation secretary, Barry Schoch, had just finished briefing a group of business-sector advocates on the number of state-maintained bridges in need of repair when the East Coast earthquake rattled the room. “We just kind of looked at each other and said, ‘What was that number again?’” said David Patti, president and CEO of the Harrisburg-based Pennsylvania Business Council. The number is 5,200 — most in the nation, or about one in five of all state-maintained bridges, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. Of the approximately 40,000 statemaintained highway miles, one in five was in need of repairs as of a year ago. “We literally have a safety issue, when you look at the condition of roads and bridges,” said Gene Barr, vice president of the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry. Beyond safety, business advocates say the state’s competitiveness is hurt by employee hours lost on congested roads, delivery trucks detoured around weight-restricted bridges and inadequate public transportation systems that many people use to get to work. “Our preference would be to prioritize and to find savings, and all those things still will be necessary, but ... more money has to go in,” said David N. Taylor, executive director of the Pennsylvania Manufacturers’ Association. “And I think the point is well made that there are costs that are already associated with not fixing or upgrading our infrastructure.” This year, PennDOT is scheduled to spend $5.2 billion on highways, bridges and transit, including federal money. The cornerstone of the commission’s recommendations was the removal of a cap on the oil company franchise tax, a wholesale tax paid by gas stations. At the end of a five-year phase-in period, that alone would provide almost $1.4 billion, the commission said. Assuming gas stations pass the entire cost through to customers and gas prices stay the same, then that would add approximately 19 cents to a gallon of gas after five years.

The families of Dolores Brown and Thomas Dombroski were living in the midst of national economic disaster, a time of making-do as best one could, and any source of income or assistance was welcomed. “My mother made us a lot of home- made clothes,” said Brown. “She was also working for 25 cents an hour doing some housework. She wanted desperately to keep the boys out of the mines. My brothers helped out too. One of them, Danny, rode a bike and did singing telegrams.” In 1939, with America building up its military, brother Eddie joined the Army and shipped out for the Panama Canal Zone, where he would re- main through World War II. The family also operated a little store in their front room. “(My mother) sold candy and ice cream and staples like bread and soda, and they did pretty well. My father worked there too. We had five big cherry trees in the back yard, and they planted tomatoes and string beans and all that stuff. You were allowed to keep chickens then, and so every Sunday we would have a roast chicken.” Dombroski remembers the Great Depression as a time when you had to struggle to heat the house and do the cooking. Rents, he said, ran about $25 a month, and there wasn’t much money left over for utilities, which in those days meant anthracite coal. So families used their ingenuity. “Most of the coal (we used) was called ‘bootleg coal.’ You’d go up to the stripping and you’d get as much coal as you could for your home. Then there were railroad tracks and the coal cars would be always filled up high. And when they’d bump them the coal would fall off onto the tracks, and so you’d go pick coal off the tracks. So between those two you’d have sustenance through the winter to keep your home warm.” WPA Continued from Page 1A weekly, his WPA job was for a time a godsend for the family, beefing up its income as it scrambled to make ends meet during the most trying economic time in America’s history. The experience of Thomas Dombroski’s family in Trucksville was similar. “My three brothers worked on it (WPA) between 1936 and 1939,” he said. “It was very difficult at that time to get any kind of a job. The WPA helped put food on the table because there was no welfare at that time. Social Security had just come in, but no one was eligible for it yet.” While Dolores Brown’s father worked on the Luzerne paving program, Dombroski’s memories are of his brothers – Alex, Frank and John – working on the Union Street (Luzerne) catch basin, designed to pond water and prevent the troublesome Toby Creek from overflowing. WPA’s legacy is visible today in those and many other ways. Among projects in Wilkes-Barre were the retaining walls along North Main Street and Hazle Avenue, as well as walls along Laurel Run, Mill and Solomon creeks. Thanks to WPA labor, many city streets were repaved after the iron streetcar tracks were torn up. The Miner Park and Hollenback swimming pools were built. Travel was made easier when the East End Boulevard was straightened out and crucial highway links in the Back Mountain and West Side areas were constructed, all by WPA workers. Wyoming and Forty Fort got new school buildings, with Forty Fort seeing a new swimming pool and an improved borough building as well. New sports fields were built in West Pittston, Ashley and Ply- CLARK VAN ORDEN/THE TIMES LEADER This WPA-built retaining wall helps keep Laurel Run Creek in Wilkes-Barre within its banks. “That money was very important. We didn’t have welfare like today. My father didn’t even get compensation when he got hurt.” Dolores (Sigismondi) Brown Daughter of WPA worker mouth. The Wyoming Valley Airport, located in Forty Fort and Wyoming and built in the 1920s, was expanded and given a paved runway through WPA, enabling it to handle passenger and freight traffic – including early air mail -- and help train World War II pilots. WPA workers were employed on the massive dike system that protects both sides of the Susquehanna River from flooding. Crucial retaining walls in communities as scattered as Fairmount Township, Plymouth Township and Hanover Township came into being through the WPA. A rock wall in Laflin was inset with a plaque thanking President Roosevelt. The WPA’s presence in Luzerne County was enormous. Within a year after its authoriza- tion, nearly 15,000 people were working under the program in the county, with an administrative staff of 200 headquartered on four floors of the Hollenback building on South River Street. In fact, it’s difficult to find a Luzerne County community that did not benefit in some way from WPA projects and labor. Historians date America’s Great Depression from October, 1929, with the collapse of prices on the New York Stock Exchange. By the early 1930s employers of all kinds were laying off workers or shutting down completely. Nationally, thousands of banks failed, closing their doors and – in those days before federal bank insurance – wiping out the savings of millions of people. Then in 1932 Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt swept into the presidency on a platform of fighting unemployment and poverty with new tactics. He called his huge package of initiatives the New Deal. In time, Congress would enact Social Security, along with legislation to stabilize the banks, keep farmers on their land, help homeowners and develop natural resources for power. CLARK VAN ORDEN/THE TIMES LEADER A chiseled stone plaque marks the WPA-built wall along the Laurel Run Creek in Parsons section of Wilkes-Barre. The federal program provided unemployed people with jobs doing useful public projects. The WPA was one of several federal programs designed to put people to work at appropriate jobs. Men barely out of high school found employment in the Civilian Conservation Corps, living in military-style barracks and doing forestry projects. There was even a Federal Arts Project, which hired unemployed writers, artists, actors and musicians, one legacy of which is the large murals celebrating the dignity of labor that decorate older post offices to this day. WPA’s specific mission was placing the able-bodied unemployed in jobs that would provide income, preserve individual selfrespect and help communities with useful projects. The program’s reach was wide, and those whose families benefited from it are still grateful. Do- lores Brown recalls her family picking up clothing made by WPA-paid women working in the old Luzerne High School gym. “We all looked alike when we went to school with those dresses. I remember that distinctly because my two older sisters would complain, like teenagers. They didn’t want to wear those dresses to school. I didn’t care. Maybe it was my age or what, but I was just happy I had a dress.” Dombroski recalls his brothers working on Toby Creek being similarly thankful for what they had, privations or not. “It was a situation where especially in the winter nobody had cars, so you walked to work. The bus schedule wasn’t necessarily going to where Union Street was, that basin. So they would walk over there. Summertime it DAY Continued from Page 1A emerged from the smoke and rubble is in some ways a very different country. How different? First, a story: It’s said that when President Richard Nixon made his groundbreaking visit to Communist China in 1972, he asked Premier Zhou Enlai what he thought about the French Revolution. It’s unclear if Zhou thought Nixon was asking about the political upheaval of 1789 or the Paris student demonstrations just four years earlier. In any case he replied: “Too soon to tell.” It might be too soon to fully understand the impact of 9/11 as well. Did it somehow help spark the Arab Spring because our response unleashed so much upheaval in the Middle East? Or the Tea Party, which harnessed an anxiety that America had lost control of events and turned that into an intimidating political force? It is easier to gauge the fallout on the day itself. From the moment of impact, the terrorists struck not only concrete and steel, but the very notion of American might and invincibility. From crowded cities to one-stoplight towns, from farmsteads to factories and across the rugged spaces where the singular character of America has been mythically chiseled and shaped, the nation held its collective breath. Perhaps we still do. Don’t many of us pause when we hear the unmistakable scream of a jet engine in downward flight – and wait? “I think 9/11 and its aftermath years later were a shock to our national consciousness because of the way we thought about ourselves and our place in the world,” said Nicholas Burns, the American ambassador to NATO at the time and a top State Department official during the Iraq War. “It has been a much more difficult, much more fearful time for us.” Historian Douglas Brinkley said 9/11 put America into an unfamiliar “defensive crouch.” It triggered a mad rush to AP FILE PHOTO Two women hold each other as they watch the World Trade Center burn following a terrorist attack on the twin skyscrapers in New York. protect ourselves. We endorsed government measures that pierced the privacy of email and telephones, and created a mammoth security bureaucracy that frisked nuns at airports – but, two Christmases ago, missed a would-be bomber with explosives tucked into his underwear. In the relentless search for security, we’ve wrestled with questions that go to the heart of who we are. Have warrantless wiretaps made us safer or just chipped away at the wall that protects the public from overzealous authority? Has torturing suspected terrorists saved American lives or undermined the values we trumpet around the world? Photographs from Abu Ghraib, the infamous Baghdad prison where Americans abused and tortured Iraqis, then put them on display, shocked the world. Is that who we’ve become? “I don’t think America ever lost touch with the good part of itself,” said former Sen. Bob Kerrey, a member of the 9/11 commission and a Medal of Honor winner who lost part of a leg during combat in Vietnam. Nearly 3,000 people died on Sept. 11. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that followed have so far claimed 6,000 American lives and tens of thousands of civilians in each country. Another 45,000 U.S. troops have been wounded, some in devastating ways, and will forever bear the scars of their service. The country is spent – emotionally and fiscally. The wars have cost us more than $1 trillion, all on credit, and that’s come back to haunt us. Though the dots didn’t all connect, 9/ 11 for many became a lens for viewing everything that came after: The wars, a sagging economy, the social and cultur- wasn’t bad, but in the winter it was rough. You had to walk everywhere.” By 1943 America was enmeshed in World War II, and the Great Depression was fading into history. With millions of men and women in the military and millions more employed in war-related jobs in factories, WPA was no longer needed, and so it came to an end. But in the memories of people who lived through the 1930s, the WPA is recalled fondly as a beacon of hope and a hand up in a tough time. Said Dombroski, “It was a godsend that there were jobs in the WPA to take up the slack for the unemployment. There was no other way that people could live, have sustenance, have money to buy things.” al rancor. They provided coherence to the notion that the day was a point of demarcation. America has long been “deeply divided on who it is and where we should go and what our priorities should be,” said Richard Land, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. “I think 9/11 has probably sharpened it and perhaps revealed those divisions.” “It just seems as if the post-9/11 world has been a world in which our country seems to show itself as not very good in solving problems anymore,” said historian Michael Kazin of Georgetown University. “Both parties reflect this sense that America is not working very well, that we’re not able to set goals and achieve them.” A brief moment of national unity did occur in the immediate aftermath of 9/ 11. The country became a tapestry of shared grief. Leaders spoke with one voice. “There was this sense there would be this profound change for the better,” said documentary filmmaker Ken Burns. “Americans were coming together in an unusually powerful way ... in the ashes. We live in a bittersweet memory of that collective tragedy and collective possibility. It hasn’t been the same since.” Abraham Lincoln talked about the power of shared national sorrow and sacrifice at his first inaugural when he spoke of the “mystic chords of memory stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave.” They bind us to our past, he seemed to be saying, and we will best weather whatever befalls us together. Sept. 11, was that kind of common moment. When it was over, the Earth still turned in its usual orbit and the stars in the nighttime sky burned like a billion distant campfires. But the universe had shifted somehow. “The moment before the towers fell and the moment after feels to me absolutely like a hinge moment in world history,” said playwright Tony Kushner. Though we’ve felt the impact of 9/11, more will yet unfold. Ten years on, it still might be “too soon to tell.” CMYK PEOPLE SECTION THE TIMES LEADER B SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2011 TOM MOONEY REMEMBER WHEN Test of time: A match up with the elders L Christian Saavedra did the illustrations for Gloria Hartmann’s memoir, ’Don’t Listen to Your Sisters,’ including this cover. look at growing up in the 1960s as the baby of a Hartmann’s success across a range of fields — including relocating to favorable climes — emanates from her goal-oriented nature. “When my husband and I decided to relocate to Florida, we made it our goal to have a house in 5 years; we did it in 4,” Hartmann recalls.

MEET PAUL REINERT D r. Paul M. Reinert is the principal at the Wycallis Elementary School and the Director of CHARLOTTE BARTIZEK/ FOR THE TIMES LEADER Curriculum and Instruction at the Dallas School District. Reinert, 52, a native of Shaver- town, is a graduate of Bishop O’Reilly High School and the University of Scranton, where he received a bachelor’s degree in secondary education and general science. He also received a master’s degree in school counseling from the University of Scranton and his principal certificate and doctorate degree in human development with a specialization in education and administration from Marywood University. He and his wife, Kim, have three children: Virgina, 21, Jake, 19 and Samuel, 16. They live in Dallas. What drew you to a career in education? “The funny thing is I actually started college to be a medical doctor and wanted to be a pediatrician. I told my parents I wanted to be a doctor and work with kids. So here I am, 30 years later ... a doctor who works with kids. I always enjoyed being around children, and I think education is a really, really important vocation, or calling for us, if you will. And I like a lot of the periphery of education. I coached for years, and I like meeting kids outside of school and building relationships that are kind of multi-layered, and I knew that in education, that would be a way to do that.” You’ve got two very big jobs in your district. What do you enjoy about each? “I love being in a building full of kids. You just walk in here and spend a day in the building with the children, and you get so much energy. And we happen to have a tremendous teaching faculty here, so that’s an added bonus. You have all of these professionals who really care deeply about their kids. I also love the broad spectrum of education. I teach part-time for Wilkes and Misericordia, and I enjoy learning more about what’s going on in our field. I enjoy having the chance to work with up-and-coming administrators and educational leaders. I love to look at what a child learns in kindergarten and how that prepares them to take advanced math in high school.” What do you do to relax? “I exercise, play the guitar and sing. I’m not a very good singer, and I’m not a very good guitar player, but I know a lot of songs. I’ve played in a band called Just Us since 1981. We still perform some Fridays at Lucky’s Sporthouse and we used to play at Jim Dandy’s every Friday. That’s a big piece of who I am. And I’m a runner. I’ve been running marathons and local races, I just did part of the triathlon and just got home from Oregon doing a 200See MEET, Page 11B et’s say you’re at a party when all of a sudden the phone rings. The host picks it up. “Hello,” he says. Then, after a short pause, he turns to the guests and announces “It’s Judge Crater: he wants to know where everyone is.” The room erupts in laughter. Except for you. You don’t have the faintest idea what that line means. Know why? That’s because you’ve been transported back to 1940, when the party is being held. So, in recognition of National Grandparents Day coming up next weekend, let’s play that new fun game “Are You Smarter than a Person from 1940?” Here’s question two. No peeking at the answers below until you’ve given your best shot. • Your spouse reminds you to “fix the furnace” before going to bed. Does that mean the furnace is broken? Shouldn’t you call the repair guy? Explain. Heh Heh! Getting skunked already? Try number three. • You’re at your workplace water cooler in 1940, trying to hold up your end of the conversation. You know the “DiMaggio” somebody refers to is the great young outfielder for the Yankees. But just as you’re patting yourself on the back over that, your buddy says “How’d you like Ish Kabibble last night?” You’d probably drop your paper cup in confusion. Feeling like an idiot, you head back to your desk, only to run into question number four. • You’ve figured out how to use the enormous, clanking typewriter. But you notice its print on the paper is becoming very faint. “Better change the ribbon,” your officemate suggests, tossing you a little box from the supply closet. “Uh, maybe tomorrow,” you say. You slink home, thoroughly embarrassed by your day and looking for some comfort. Instead you get question five. • “She’s a real Craig’s wife,” your spouse says, talking about the new couple who’ve moved in next door. You’d probably like to say “Get me out of here.” But that would tip everyone off to your being a time traveler. So you just nod “That so?” and go on your merry way. Well, let’s not prolong the agony. You’ve lost. Here’s the post-quiz wrapup. Joseph Crater was a New York City judge in the 1920s who disappeared after walking out of a restaurant and getting into a cab one night. Jokes about where he “really” might be were circulating as late as the 1950s. No, don’t call the repairman. “Fixing” the furnace means either banking it carefully so that a small portion of anthracite coal will burn all night long or firing it up again with a shovelful or two in the morning to provide heat and hot water for the day. Don’t forget to empty the tray of ashes down below. “Ish Kabibble” was a musician, comedian and singer of funny songs. He appeared on radio, made movies and performed with Kay Kyser’s band. Incidentally, Kay Kyser was a guy. Change a typewriter ribbon? I don’t think there’s a person under 50 on this planet who can do it. You might as well ask somebody to load a flintlock or slaughter a chicken for dinner. A “Craig’s wife” (expression taken from the title of a Broadway play of the 1920s) was an upper-middle-class woman who, in those sad days when women could be treated as possessions, had lost all sight of the human side of life. Don’t feel bad. Just honor your elders. And now, in the immortal words of Judge Crater, “Hey, where…” Tom Mooney is a Times Leader columnist.

I wanted to surprise them. I wondered if it would ruffle feathers, but I decided to stick by my story.” Natalie Smith, Hartmann’s oldest sister, loved the book, de- spite the fact that she was not written about — or perhaps because of it. “I was very proud to learn about what she had been up to,” Smith says. “If anyone has ideas they want to pursue, I say go for it. How many times do we hear ‘no’? Take a chance. One more no won’t hurt.” Even Veronica Ciuferri and Camille Matrunich, who figured prominently in their sister’s book, were wild about it. “It really is a very nice book. It brought back a lot of old memories. Gloria has always been outgoing, and always into something. It was a surprise that she wrote this book, but at the same time, it was not a surprise,” says Matrunich. “I’ll never forget getting the mail the day the book arrived,” Ciuferri laughs. “All of the siblings besides Gloria still live in the area, so even though she sometimes sends packages, I was still asking myself ‘What’s this?’ as I opened it. Then I pull out a book, and on the cover I see a drawing of my Uncle Tony and my sister with her tongue frozen to our mailbox on the cover. I was hysterical with laughter,” she adds. While Hartmann may joke that writing the book was her form of retaliation against the pranks her sisters pulled on her as a child, she insists the book was created out of love and a desire to reflect on growing up in an idyllic neighborhood. “Really, I wrote this book for me, but I also wrote it so my sisters could remember,” Hartmann says, “It also invites adults to consider what sort of sibling they were — the one that did the pranking, or the one that was pranked. Everyone has stories like this. The book is geared toward anyone from age 23 to 86. I gist, and we’ve always been close. He moved out there in ’96 and got involved in a race, and I’ve gone out for the last 1 1 years to do the race. The first time I landed there, I thought, ‘This place is so cool.’ The mountains, the rivers — it’s vast. And the culture is very diverse. You have the Asian influence, the American influence, the Hispanic influence, and they all kind of arrived at the same time. The diversity manifests itself differently.” Always in the fridge? “Yogurt, fruit and baby carrots.” Hobbies? “I don’t have a big collection, but I collect Fender Stratocasters. I have five. I love vintage guitars. I’d love to fill my house with them.” What are you reading? “‘Life of Pi’ by Yann Martel. And I just finished ‘Breakfast of Champions’ and ‘SlaughterhouseFive’ by Kurt Vonnegut. And I finally read ‘The Hobbit.’ In my education, I read so many educational books and academic works, so now I’m trying to read some classical works of literature.” First car? “The first one I bought myself was a 1981 Plymouth Horizon. Burgundy. AM radio. Wheel covers. Black vinyl seats. Four-speed. No air conditioning. And it got 45 miles per gallon. I remember, vividly, the night I bought it with my dad.” Favorite vacation spot? “Cape May, N.J. My parents took us there when I was 3 years old and we’ve gone back almost every summer since.” Favorite movie? “‘The Sound of Music.’ Mother Superior had total authority over that convent, yet never, ever used it inappropriately. She totally cared about those nuns. And doing the right thing.” Favorite TV show? “Major League Baseball. It’s a great combination of athletics and physical chess. I love all of the mental stuff that goes on with baseball, and how the game varies depending on the situation.” Memorable moment? “I have four brothers, and three of them asked me to be their ‘best man.’ My oldest brother who didn’t asked our Great Uncle, who was our family’s hero. Nobody could hold a candle to this guy, but he passed away before my other brothers got married. And so the fact that three of my brothers asked me ... I can’t tell you how meaningful that is. My family is critically important to me.” Words to live by? “Live as if.’ I’ve known a lot of people that have had tragedies and really difficult things that have happened to them, and they say when that happens, you get your priorities in order. I’ve been blessed in my life and have never had that level of tragedy. Not a terminal illness. Not the loss of a really close loved one unexpectedly. But I live ‘as if’ I did, because I’ve learned from watching other people. When I go home, and there’s a little bit of water in my basement because of Hurricane Irene, I say ‘OK, we’ll clean it up.’ My house PRANKS Continued from Page 1B ty found in eastern Florida fed her creative appetite. Hartmann sang professionally from 1977 through 1991 with husband Bill Hartmann, who worked to bring his pop rock music acclaim in Pennsylvania and upstate New York. In 2005, she developed a seizure disorder that forces her to avoid loud noise and bright light. While Hartmann may not join her husband frequently on stage in Florida, she has been able to devote the time she once reserved for singing to a brand new passion: writing. “In 2009, I began jotting down a story idea about my childhood, and in 2010, I seriously put it to paper,” Hartmann recalls, “I was 5 years younger than my sister Camille and 7 years younger than my sister Veronica, so I alternated between being their annoyance and their plaything.” Hartmann drew from a vast repository of hairy, bizarre, and always hilarious childhood incidents to create a 36-page paperback memoir richly illustrated by Christian Saavedra. To bring her creation to life, Hartmann used AuthorHouse, a self-publishing company that uses print-on-demand technology to produce a wide variety of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry titles. “One of my coworkers at Delray Medical Center actually published her book through AuthorHouse first. About the time she showed me was when I was getting serious about publishing my manuscript. I took it as a sign from God and pursued the company.” MEET Continued from Page 1B mile relay race. At home, we watch movies with the family. And most of us exercise. We run, bike, swim and lift weights.” What kind of music is your favorite? “An array. Classical, contemporary, country, folk. Mostly folk and folk rock from the ’60s and ’70s. CSN, Simon and Garfunkel, Peter, Paul and Mary. And I also listen to a fair amount of classic rock. It’s pretty much everything. Follow sports? “I do. Phillies fan, and I was a Phillies fan through the ’80s, before they were the Phillies they are today. And I love the Seattle teams, because I just love Seattle.

He was the kind of guy that would give you a ride, fix your bike, or watch your kids. Growing up, he was my savior,” Hartmann says. It was often Hartmann’s Uncle Tony that attempted to protect her from her sisters’ schemes. In fact, Hartmann’s title, “Don’t Listen to Your Sisters,” was her uncle’s oft-repeated warning. She dedicated her first book to his memory. AuthorHouse representatives informed Hartmann that her book’s sales are exceeding the company’s average benchmarks, but not even this welcome news has made her complacent. Hartmann hopes to publish a second book in the future, this time with a large publishing house like Harper Collins. While she has many ideas for which manuscript she will work on next, Hartmann is considering writing a sequel to her first story in which she details some of the acts of retaliation she committed against her sisters. Ciuferri welcomes such a sequel, insisting that she cannot recall any atrocities Hartmann committed against her. Matrunich, however, is much more enthusiastic about the prospect. “I hope so!” she declares. Matrunich, like all of Hartmann’s siblings, are sure such a sequel would prove to be as hilarious as its predecessor. didn’t fall down. Nobody got killed in an accident or a flood.

By RICK GANO AP Sports Writer SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Kayvon Webster returned a fumble 96 yards for an early touchdown as South Florida came to Notre Dame for the first time and stunned the 16th-ranked Irish 2320 Saturday in a game disrupted for hours because of storms. USF coach Skip Holtz got an emotional victory in his return to Notre Dame, where he went to school and where his dad Lou led the Irish to their last national title in 1988. Webster’s long return for a score four minSOUTH utes into the FLORIDA game took all the momentum from the Irish they NOTRE DAME and couldn’t recover. It came after Notre Dame took the opening kickoff and drove to the USF 1. What followed was a nightmare first half that included two fumbles, a holding penalty that nullified a Cierre Wood TD run and then an interception of Dayne Crist by USF’s Devekeyan Lattimore in the end zone that turned the Irish away. Maikon Bonani kicked three field goals and the Bulls had a 16-0 halftime lead. Then things got even stranger. With the crowd getting restless over Notre Dame’s erratic play as the teams left the field for halftime, and with lightning flashing near the stadium, officials asked fans to evacuate Notre Dame Stadium and decided to keep the teams in their locker rooms. They stayed there for 2 hours, 10 minutes, sitting through a couple of bands of violent storms. When the Irish finally emerged, they had switched quarterbacks from Crist to Tommy Rees, who led them to four straight victories as the starter at the end of last season. Crist was 7-of-15 for 85 yards. The game was delayed a second time by severe weather with 4:21 to go and after a 43-minute delay, Jerrell Young intercepted Rees — Notre Dame’s fifth turnover of the game. Rees threw an 8-yard TD pass to Michael Floyd to cap a 99-yard drive with 21 seconds left as the Irish closed to 23-20.

Williams won her third-round match, 6-1, 7-6 (5), over fourthseeded Victoria Azarenka, but not before losing her first four match points and getting pushed to the limit in the second set by the Belarussian, who suddenly found her footing in Arthur Ashe Stadium. See OPEN, Page 2C By JOHN ERZAR [email protected] WILKES-BARRE – Aside from the long touchdown run, the Meyers’ defense did a solid job in the first half Saturday night. It was other aspects of football that doomed the Mohawks and the debut of new coach Corry Hanson. Holy Cross not only scored on a long run but on defense and special teams as well, jumping to a big lead on the way to a 37-14 in a non-conference game. “Mistakes.

WILCOX/THE TIMES LEADER Christian Foley (88) and teammates gang tackle Holy Cross running back Tyler Hinkley on Saturday. Lions need to decide on a QB AS ONE quarterback proudly led Penn State’s offense onto the field for opening day, another hung his head. This is what typically happens when a fight turns out so tight even the coaching staff can’t make a firm decision between two talented guys vying for the same job. One gets to begin the season as a starter. The other gets his feelings hurt. “ I felt as if I won the job, hands-down,” said Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin, the former West Scranton High School star and Penn State’s hero of last year. “I think a lot of players thought I won the job hands-down.” The Penn State coaches apparently weren’t among those sharing that sentiment. They started Rob Bolden. “I still want to be the first guy,” Bolden said. Nobody’s saying he isn’t. But even more telling, nobody’s saying he is. What Saturday’s 41-7 victory over punchless Indiana State really said is Penn State may be stuck with a two-quarterback system for a long while. Both Bolden and McGloin saw extensive action behind center, each getting plenty of opportunity to prove he’s the leader of the huddle. It turns out both did. Different situation for both Bolden completed half of his 12 passes for 37 yards and led two touchdown drives. McGloin triggered three touchdown marches while connecting on 6-of-8 passes for 77 yards. They bounced in and out of the lineup like ping-pong balls. Bolden got the first quarter. McGloin took over for the second. Then the two split series through most of the third quarter. And neither will be comfortable working like this until the situation is settled. “It’s different,” Bolden said. “I’ve never been in that situation before.” Neither has McGloin. “Whatever’s best for the team,” McGloin shrugged before admitting, “of course I want to be the one and only guy.” It’s only going to get worse if they keep sharing snaps, especially playing a critical position that demands team leadership and commands the confidence of teammates. It really isn’t built for two guys. As they say, if you have two quarterbacks, you really don’t have any. “Everybody’s looking to see who gets off the bus first,” Penn State quarterbacks coach Jay Paterno said, noting the team’s starting quarterback is always the first off the team bus. “We don’t look at it that way. I think both of them can do some things. “They’re both going to play, they’re both going to help us win.” But alternating every quarter or series makes both quarterbacks feel like opportunities are lost for each. It’s why Penn State needs to pick a quarterback to stick with before Alabama comes to town next weekend – before the next pass thrown at Penn State’s receivers looks completely different than the last one. “We throw different balls,” McGloin said, comparing the way the ball comes out of his See SOKOLOSKI, Page 10C K PAGE 2C ➛ SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2011 L O C A L C A L E N D A R T R A N S A C T I O N S SUNDAY, SEPT. 4 National League CHICAGO CUBS—Signed vice president of player personnel Oneri Fleita to a four-year contract extension.

The first tournament, held July 13, was called the “Lone Ranger.” Winners were Debbie Charmichle, Marge Darzinsky, Rosina Russ and Norma Robinson. The second tournament, called “Best Poker Hand,” was held Aug. 24, with the winners being: Dorothy D’Luco, Marge Dorzinsky, Arlene Komnath and Edie Saunders. The league recently held a luncheon meeting at a local restaurant where prizes were awarded for the tournament of Aug. 24. The prizes for the tournament of July 13 were awarded at a previous luncheon meeting.

Williams won the first set in 28 minutes and looked every bit the favorite in a tournament that has lost its defending champion, Kim Clijsters, the Wimbledon and French Open champs, Petra Kvitova and Li Na, three-time major champion Maria Sharapova, along with Williams’ sister, Venus. Because Serena hasn’t played much this year, she came in seeded 28th. That set her up for an early match with Azarenka — a match that, quality wise, might have been more appropriate for the second weekend at Flushing Meadows instead of the first.

Williams’ next match will be against the winner of a thirdround meeting between American Sloane Stephens and 16thseeded Ana Ivanovic. Earlier, No. 3 Roger Federer defeated 27th-seeded Marin Cilic 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 to make it to the round of 16 for the 30th straight time in a Grand Slam tournament. Federer needs an Open title to extend his streak to nine straight years with a major championship. He fought off the range of his 6-foot-6 opponent and dealt with an unpredictable wind on the show court to win his 225th match at a major, second best behind Jimmy Connors. “I’m on track because I’m in the tournament,” Federer said. “That’s the most important at the end of the day. I seriously don’t care how I’m playing. I wish I could play my best every single time and feel amazing. That’s not reality.” Federer’s only major hiccup came at the end of the second set, when he got broken in the last game off a big Cilic forehand that Federer couldn’t get back. With Cilic facing a break point while serving at 4-all in the third set, he was warned by the chair umpire for a time violation. Cilic promptly double-faulted, giving Federer a 5-4 lead. Third-seeded Federer won seven of the next nine games to close out the match. Earlier in the stadium, topseeded Caroline Wozniacki rolled through her third straight match, avoiding the upset bug that has turned big sections of the women’s bracket into a freefor-all. Wozniacki, the Open runnerup in 2009, defeated American Vania King 6-2, 6-4 and has lost a total of 12 games over her first three matches. Like Federer, it took her time to figure out the breezes on a warm, windy day in New York “The wind, it was going every- 9-2 4-1 10-1 3-1 8-1 15-1 20-1 6-1 7-2 20-1 15-1 3-1 10-1 12-1 5-2 6-1 4-1 5-1 5-2 4-1 7-2 8-1 15-1 6-1 20-1 5-1 12-1 9-2 6-1 20-1 8-1 4-1 3-1 7-2 10-1 15-1 6-1 3-1 7-2 4-1 9-2 20-1 15-1 10-1 8-1 T E N N I S U.S. Open Saturday At The USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center Men Third Round Novak Djokovic (1), Serbia, vs. Nikolay Davydenko, Russia Roger Federer (3), Switzerland, def.

Though she is still in search of her first major, she has been ranked No. 1 for most of the last year. “To be honest, I felt like I was playing with her,” King said. “But she isn’t No. 1 without a good reason.

BY JAY MONAHAN For The Times Leade r STATE COLLEGE – Replacing a record holder is never an easy task – particularly one who has been the face of an offense for the past three seasons. But Silas Redd made it look very easy Saturday. In his first game taking over Penn State career rushing leader Evan Royster’s spot, Redd eased into his role in comfortable fashion against an overwhelmed Indiana State defense. The sophomore tailback rushed for 104 yards on a career-high 12 carries and had two touchdowns in a 41-7 victory. His performance left coach Joe Paterno impressed. “Silas played better than I thought he would,” Paterno said. “He has a lot of ability. He played a good, solid game. “He made a lot of offense for himself. If he could do that, he could make a pretty good ball player out of himself.” Redd anchored the offense in two standout drives for Penn State. He rushed for 40 yards and a touchdown on the Nittany Lions’ first offensive possession. A quarter later, the Norwalk, Conn., product garnered 37 yards and his second score on four carries during a second quarter drive. Redd is expected to soldier the rushing game for the Nittany Lions. Averaging 8.7 yards per carry, he said that meeting his high expectations equates to more carries for a back who touched the ball an average of 5.7 times per game in 2010. “I only had 12 carries today but I know I could be called on for more than 20 some games,” Redd said. “I’m proud of my agility for handling this. Physically, I’m ready for this kind of workload.” Elusiveness defines Redd’s running game. He unofficially broke 11 tackles, oftentimes juking the first defender for big gains. He misled two Sycamore defenders on a 9-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Later in the first quarter, he spun around defenders for a 17-yard run to put the Nittany Lions in Indiana State territory. Before being taken out midway through the third quarter, he totaled four runs of 10-plus yards. “We suspect Silas to be the guy who can burst for a big gain,” offensive coordinator Galen Hall said. “He is not really the type of back who could run over someone. He broke some tackles. This is what we expect from him.” Both Paterno and Hall were displeased with Redd’s blocking abilities. Hall noted that on least two occasions Redd missed a key block in the backfield. “He’s had a little bit of a tendency to make blocking mistakes,” Paterno said. Laying down blocks and protecting his quarterbacks are duties Redd had been emphasizing during the offseason. “Coach is right,” Redd said. “I definitely can improve on my blocking.” The utilization of the running game will be similar against Alabama as it was for Indiana State, Hall said. Penn State used Redd prominently in two key drives with four and five carries in each. The duo of Michael Zordich and Joe Suhey rotated carries with Redd. Zordich gained 29 yards on six carries and scored a touchdown. Suhey posted 15 yards on five carries, including a touchdown. Sophomore Curtis Dukes chipped in with 51 yards on six carries, and Brandon Beachum replaced Redd for seven attempts, accumulating 41 yards. Using a three- or four-deep running back corps keeps defenses on their toes, said Redd, and the Nittany Lions’ depth at the position will test opposing defenses’ endurance. “It takes a toll on the defense,” Redd said. “Those guys get tired when you keep putting in fresh backs.” Redd’s previous 100-yard rushing game came last year when he had 131 yards on 11 runs against Northwestern. AP PHOTOS Penn State’s Chaz Powell (2) returns the opening kickoff 95-yards for a touchdown against Indiana State during the first quarter Saturday in State College. LIONS Continued from Page 1C their quarterback conundrum this week. That means more of the same next week against No. 2 Alabama. “Both of them are gonna play,” coach Joe Paterno said. “Both of them can play. They’ve been under an awful lot of pressure because of obviously the media and everyone else wants to know who’s gonna play quarterback.” Including the quarterbacks. After the game, McGloin and Bolden both reiterated their desire for the coaches to select a full-time quarterback. “I still want to see a (main) guy,” Bolden said. “It has an advantage to it. But I’m not the one making the call.” That would be Paterno. And play-callers Jay Paterno and Galen Hall both deferred to their boss on how the rotation would work going forward. Certainly it couldn’t be based off of stats from the opener. Bolden was just 6-of-12 for 37 yards but had two nice deep passes to Derek Moye and Justin Brown clang off the receivers’ hands. Both throws would have likely gone for touchdowns had they been caught. McGloin had the better numbers, finishing 6-of-8 for 77 yards and hooking up for the Lions’ biggest passing play of the game, a 29-yard connection with Moye. “I think (my) performance, how I played today, I think it speaks for itself,” McGloin said. “I said I want to be in there, I want to get the job, especially next weekend for ‘Bama. “But whatever the coaches de- NOTES Continued from Page 1C “I really probably could have (been on the field) today, but the doc didn’t want me to do it,” Paterno said. “They’re afraid I won’t get out of the way and maybe something fluky would happen. “And I’m still sore. You guys can see me here -- it’s obvious. But I can walk on it. Sometimes I walk without the cane when I’m home. I’ve got to learn to walk up and down steps without the cane, the whole bit.” Paterno expressed optimism that he will be able to return to the sideline for next Saturday’s game against No. 2 Alabama. But his past estimates on his recovery time have been off. He originally said in mid-August Penn State QB Matt McGloin calls signals Saturday. cide, I’ll go with.” The junior from West Scranton also had the lowlight of the game for the quarterbacks, trying to throw away a ball while being sacked, only to have it hit a defender in the gut. But the potential interception -- and potentially six points the other way -was dropped. “I wouldn’t go overboard (on the quarterbacks) one way or the other after today,” Joe Paterno said. “Outside of McGloin throwing that one away, I thought overall they did a good job.” More promising for the Lions (1-0) was the running game. Penn State racked up 245 yards on the ground, led by new starting tailback Silas Redd. The sophomore ran for 104 yards on just12 carries, scoring a pair of touchdowns. The first came from on a 9-yard run to cap the Lions’ first official drive. Fullback Michael Zordich scored on a 1-yard plunge in the second quarter before Redd hit pay dirt again, this time from 4 yards out, to give Penn State a that he would “absolutely” be down on the field for the season opener. Saturday was the first time Paterno coached a game from upstairs since the Nittany Lions’ Rose Bowl loss to USC on Jan. 1, 2009. Paterno had injured his left hip early in the 2008 season and spent the majority of that season up in the booth before having replacement surgery that November. Infirmary report Penn State escaped relatively unscathed, as the team liberally rotated players at every position on a muggy afternoon. Only backup offensive tackle Mike Farrell appeared to be worse for the wear after the game, suffering a right knee sprain. Wide receiver Curtis Drake, who is recovering from a broken Penn State quarterback Rob Bolden scrambles against Indiana State on Saturday. commanding 28-0 lead at halftime. From there, McGloin and Bolden rotated drives in the third quarter. Joe Suhey’s 1-yard touchdown made it 34-0 after a missed extra point. The only touchdown from a Penn State quarterback came from third-stringer Shane McGregor, who scored on a 3yard keeper in the fourth quarter. The Sycamores spoiled the shutout with a 20-yard touchdown pass with 2:10 left in the game. A relatively healthy Penn State defense was aggressive, forcing three turnovers -- interceptions by Drew Astorino and true freshman Adrian Amos along with a fumble recovery by Jordan Hill. Penn State held the Sycamores to 170 total yards on offense, with roughly 65 of those yards coming against backup defenders in the fourth quarter. But like with the quarterback situation, it’s too early to read into the numbers. “Obviously Indiana (State) is not a great team,” Joe Paterno said. “But overall I thought it was a good day for us.” leg for the second time in as many years, surprisingly suited up for the game and took part in team warm-ups. He did not, however, see the field. More players missed time for the Lions for disciplinary reasons. Tailback Stephfon Green and kicker Anthony Fera both rejoined the team after preseason camp ended but neither played against the Sycamores. While Green was not missed this week, Penn State struggled in the kicking game without Fera. Walk-on Evan Lewis missed both field goals he attempted (38 and 47 yards) and also missed an extra point. Lewis was benched after the failed PAT in favor of true freshman Sam Ficken. Paterno said Fera would likely return to action next week against the Crimson Tide or the following Saturday at Temple. Day of firsts Two other true freshmen joined Ficken on the field. Wide receiver Allen Robinson and cornerback Adrian Amos. Robinson did not catch a pass, but Amos made himself known by coming up with an interception and returning it 46 yards into Indiana State territory to set up a touchdown. Elsewhere on the team, tailback Silas Redd, receiver Shawney Kersey and linebacker Glenn Carson made their first career starts for the Lions. Senior fullback Joe Suhey scored his first career rushing touchdown, while Derek Day and Zach Zwinak picked up their first career carries. Lake-Lehman alum Kenny Pollock made his first career appearance for the Lions in the fourth quarter. FIRST QUARTER PSU -- Chaz Powell 95-yard kickoff return (Evan Lewis kick), 14:47. Comment: Well, that’s one way to start off the season. Powell makes history by taking the season’s opening kickoff to the house. The senior goes untouched, cutting across the field to his right and beating the kicker to the corner before hitting pay dirt. Powell also took a kick back in last year’s opener against Youngstown State -- that one opened the second half. PENN STATE 7, INDIANA STATE 0. PSU -- Silas Redd 9-yard run (Lewis kick), 8:20. Drive: 11 plays, 77 yards, 4:59. Comment: Rob Bolden starts at quarterback, but he doesn’t have to do much on the offense’s first drive of the season as the ground game sets the tone early. Making his first career start, Redd is right at the forefront, displaying all of the slick moves that made him fan favorite as a freshman. On this touchdown, however, he charges right up the middle and bounces off of tacklers. PSU 14, ISU 0. SECOND QUARTER PSU -- Michael Zordich 1-yard run (Lewis kick), 8:55. Drive: 11 plays, 75 yards, 5:20. Comment: Matt McGloin takes over under center with the start of the second quarter. Like with Bolden’s opening drive, the Lions chew up yards on the ground, this time turning to former high school teammates Brandon Beachum and Zordich, who played in the same backfield at Cardinal Mooney High School in Youngstown, Ohio. Zordich smashes across the goal line for another score. PSU 21, ISU 0.PSU -- Redd 4-yard run (Lewis kick), 4:41. Drive: 6 plays, 77 yards, 2:50. Comment: McGloin completes the only pass of significant length on the day, hitting favorite target Derek Moye for a gain of 29 to get things going. Redd finishes off the drive with nice runs of 19 and 4 yards. PSU 28, ISU 0. THIRD QUARTER PSU -- Joe Suhey 1-yard run (kick failed), 8:29. Drive: 5 plays, 21 yards, 2:14. Comment: Nothing to see here as Penn State begins rotating Bolden and McGloin every other drive in the second half. McGloin comes on for this one after DT Jordan Hill forces and recovers a fumble at the Sycamores 21-yard line. Suhey plunges it in on the goal line on his second try, but Lewis misses the extra point and is pulled from the game. PSU 34, ISU 0. FOURTH QUARTER PSU -- Shane McGregor 3-yard run (Sam Ficken kick), 8:17. Drive: 4 plays, 12 yards, 2:08. Comment: Naturally, the only quarterback who finds the end zone for the Lions is the third-stringer. All backups in at this point as the walk-on takes a keeper up the middle and dives across the goal line. The score is set up by true freshman Adrian Amos, who comes up with an interception and returns it 46 yards to the 12. PSU 41, ISU 0.ISU -- Justin Hilton 20-yard pass from Ronnie Fouch (Cory Little kick), 2:16. Drive: 11 plays, 62 yards, 5:56. Comment: Driving against the Lions’ reserves, Indiana State keeps the starters in to be able to come out of Happy Valley with seven points to go with the $450,000 game check. PSU 41, ISU 7. PLAY OF THE GAME For the second straight year, it’s Chaz Powell who comes through with the biggest score in the season-opener. Fortunately for the Lions, it happened right at the start of the game instead of at the start of the second half this time. The 95-yard kickoff return touchdown was a bright spot in an otherwise gloomy day for Penn State on special teams. DAY TO REMEMBER Making his first career start, sophomore tailback Silas Redd quickly established himself as Penn State’s biggest weapon on offense, topping 100 yards on just 12 carries and adding two touchdowns for good measure. Redd was effective in traffic as well as in open space and has a knack for spinning and scampering for extra yards. DAY TO FORGET As well as things went for Penn State’s offensive line in the running game, there was some glaring issues in pass protection, as both Rob Bolden and Matt McGloin took some shots from the FCS defense. Despite starting four seniors on the line, there were still many breakdowns. And Alabama won’t be nearly as kind as Indiana State.

In fact, the Aggies could rightful claim to have outplayed No. 23 Auburn. Unfazed by 87,000-plus fans and a Southeastern Conference power, the Aggies twice raced to double-digit leads before falling 42-38 Saturday after a wild final few minutes. The Tigers (1-0) closed it out with two touchdowns wrapped around a successful onside in the final 2:07 after Utah State (0-1) pulled to a seemingly secure 10-point edge with Robert Turbin’s 1-yard TD run 91 seconds earlier. Close wasn’t comforting for the upset-minded Aggies. Utah State, which wasn’t even considered a favorite to win the Western Athletic Conference, scored three touchdowns after gambling on fourth down, including the last one that nearly put it away.

Colter completed 17 of 24 passes and Northwestern won for the first time since Dan Persa ruptured his Achilles. But the Irish defense held and when Daniels was stopped on a third down from the 1 for no gain, the Bulls sent in Bonani for a 17yarder that made it 13-0. Notre Dame’s mistakes continued to pile up. Wood’s 14-yard TD run was nullified by a holding penalty on Floyd. The Irish then managed a first down at the USF 4 after a Crist keeper. But Wood was thrown for a loss, Webster broke up a pass intended for TJ Jones and then Kevekeyan Lattimore stepped in front of Theo Riddick to intercept in the end zone. WILKES-BARRE TWP. – King’s outscored William Paterson in the final 57:36 during Saturday’s home opener. The Monarchs’ problem was the first 2 minutes, 24 seconds. William Paterson capitalized on a pair of King’s miscues early in the game scoring two touchdowns off Monarchs’ turnover en route to a13-6 victory at McCarthy Stadium. Damian DiIorio, who helped William Paterson defeat King’s last year by returning a fumble 35 yards for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter, caused havoc for the Monarchs once again on Saturday. On the Monarchs’ third play from scrimmage, a long snap to quarterback Joe Kirchon sailed over the signal-caller’s head and into the end zone where DiIorio jumped on the ball for a touchdown and a 6-0 lead with 13:43 left in the first. “The ball was just a little high and Joe’s got to try to kick that out, but it’s his first game,” King’s coach Jeff Knarr said. “It’s things that happen every year to someone in the world you just hope it doesn’t happen to you. And it did.” The second drive of the season for King’s wasn’t much better. This time on the second play, Kirchon was sacked by DiIorio. The ball came loose again and the William Paterson defensive end recovered a second fumble. The Pioneers got a 32-yard TD run from Dawys German on their first play from scrimmage and opened a13-0 lead with12:36 left in the first quarter. DiIorio had four tackles, two 13 W. PATERSON 6 KING’S sacks and a forced fumble in addition to his fumble recoveries on Saturday. After the big first quarter for DiIorio, King’s running backs helped block the standout. “We knew he was a good player and that he’s quick,” Knarr added. “We told the backs to make sure before their check-downs to help the line a little bit more. They made some plays when they had to, but then again we kind of put ourselves in bad situations ourselves.” After the early miscues, Kirchon settled down. The senior QB, who was starting his first game for King’s, threw for 102 yards going 13-for-29. He didn’t throw any interceptions, but he was sacked seven times for 52 yards.

The Crusaders then picked off a pass from Wilkes QB Alex George in the extra session and notched a field goal to pull out the 33-30 victory in a non-conference game Saturday afternoon at Lopardo Stadium. The Colonels (0-1) held a 30-15 lead with 6:58 left in the fourth when Susquehanna (1-0) began a scoring drive that cut the lead to 30-22 with 2:54 left in the game. Wilkes was forced to punt on its next possession after three plays and with 1:45 left on the clock, the Crusaders drove 80 yards on 10 plays to even the score at 30-30. Trailing 9-0 in the first, Wilkes got on the board when George connected with Todd Eagles for a 49yard TD pass. It was the first of three times the duo hooked up for touchdowns in the game. The two locked up twice in the third quarter for scores of 14 and 34 yards to give the Colonels a 2415 lead with 1:08 left in the stanza. Wilkes tailback Zach Tivald (11 rushes, 78 yards) scampered for a 4-yard TD to put the team ahead 30-15 with 7:07 left in the game. George finished the game 20of-27 for 216 yards and three scores, while Eagles hauled in eight passes for 143 yards and three TDs. 33 SUSQUEHANNA 30 WILKES Crusaders quarterback Rich Palazzi burned the Colonels defense for 421 yards through the air and four scoring passes.

Holy Cross quarterback Rob Heyen scored on the fourth play of the game on a 64-yard run. It accounted for all but 22 of the Crusaders’ offensive yardage at halftime. But Heyen followed with a 34yard interception return for a touchdown late in the first quarter. Then Holy Cross recorded a safety and Joe Merli returned the ensuing free kick 68 yards for a score, giving the Crusaders a 22-0 advantage at 8:06 of the second quarter. Meyers battled back with two scores, cutting the deficit to 2214 at 5:56 of the third. A bad punt snap allowed Meyers to take over at the Holy Cross 17-yard line late in the second quarter. Quarterback Matt Kropp threw an 8-yard TD pass to Chris DeMarco four plays later. Meyers moved within eight points on a 9-yard touchdown run by Shacore Proctor, where the senior running back tightroped the final few yards on the left sideline. Those scores more than cut into Holy Cross’ lead. They concerned first-year coach Jeff Stevens, who had seen the Crusaders buckle under those circumstances in the past as an assistant. “I comes back to we have to capitalize when we get the chance to pick it up,” Stevens said, “instead of making the mistakes and going backward like we did (previously). We would deflate, but we’re finally stepping up.” Holy Cross did so behind the running of Heyen and Merli, each of whom punched in fourth-quarter touchdowns.

FRED ADAMS/FOR THE TIMES LEADER Northwest QB Gunner Majer tries to evade Holy Redeemer’s Dave Bertram (3), Collin Shandra (42) and Mike Dupre. Rangers run over Redeemer Politz rushed for 244 yards, including a 47-yard TD, to lead Northwest over Royals. By JOHN ERZAR [email protected] WILKES-BARRE – Two plays might not seem like much in a football game. But when they come so close together and create so much damage like they did Saturday afternoon, the significance is magnified. Northwest’s Tony Politz scored on a 47-yard run on the final play of the first half and the Rangers recovered a fumble on the second-half kickoff, turning it into another score in their 3824 victory over Holy Redeemer in a Wyoming Valley Conference Division 2A-A game. “That run at the end of the half killed us and that start (of the third quarter) were probably the difference in the game,” Redeemer coach Joe Ostrowski said. “Fortunately, we clawed back after that.” NOR’WEST 38 REDEEM’R 24 The Royals certainly did, but not enough to overcome the impact of those two plays. Northwest was content running the ball after starting quarterback Gunner Majer left the game because of dehydration. And even more so after getting the ball back with 40 seconds left until halftime. Politz, though, weaved between the hashmarks before getting just inside the left pylon for a 17-0 lead at halftime. Northwest then recovered a fumble on the second-half kickoff, and freshman running back Austin Mazonkey scored on a 4-yard run five plays later. Down 24-0, Redeemer’s offense started to click when running back/receiver David Gawlas was moved to quarterback. Gawlas engineered two scoring drives, including one that ended when he threw across the field and receiver Eric Kerr made a diving catch in the end zone. However, Redeemer just couldn’t stop Politz when it needed to turn the momentum. The junior finished with 244 yards on 21 carries and broke off a 46-yard TD run early in the fourth quarter. Politz had just 12 carries for 131 yards last season and while he was the difference maker, Northwest coach Carl Majer pointed out others. Included was freshman Logan Womseldorf, who ran the offense when Majer’s son headed for the locker room. “Last couple years, we had Bret Rutkoski or Steve Merth or somebody who was a superstar,” Majer said. “We just have 30 kids that can play football. I’ve never coached a team like this. No matter who we put in there, they can get it done.” The 80-plus degree temperature took a toll on others besides Gunner Majer. Several players on both teams cramped up regularly and others had to be pulled out to recover from the heat. The game also lasted nearly three hours due in part to a combined 29 penalties.

TRACK AND FIELD Gold for Bolt in 4th best 200 in history The Associated Press DAEGU, South Korea — Six days and a slow start later, Usain Bolt finally won gold at the world championships Saturday, running the fourth-fastest 200 meters in history to back up his showmanship with a stunning performance. Bolt was slowest out of the blocks coming off his disqualification for a false start in the 100 final last Sunday, but drove through the bend and powered to the line in 19.40 seconds. CLARKS SUMMIT – J.C. Show (pronounced hou) put on a show Saturday afternoon. The Abington Heights receiver contributed in every phase of the game against Hazleton Area as the Comets downed the Cougars 28-14 before a packed house at “The Pit.” The sophomore receiver caught eight passes for 116 yards and two ABINGTON scores. He also in28 tercepted a pass while playing cornerback and recovered a fumble on a special HAZLETON teams play. 14 “All of our players were resilient today,” said Abington Heights coach Joe Repshis. “We responded well in the second half after some fundamental mistakes early.” The Comets were fundamentally sound on the opening series of the game. Junior quarterback Dante Pasqualichio led Abington Heights on a 7-play, 65-yard drive in just over two minutes. It appeared that the series was going to be cut short on thirdand-7 from the Comets 38-yard line. Pasqaulichio was seemingly wrapped up in the backfield when he spun free and completed a 13yard shuffle pass to senior tailback Corey Degilio that kept the drive alive. Two plays later, Show caught a pass down the right sideline and rumbled 45 yards down to the Cougar 1-yard line. Sophomore running back Quinn Karam took it in from there, staking the Comets to a 7-0. After a failed Cougar drive, junior wide receiver Jamie Henzes fielded a punt at the Cougar 46yard line and returned it 42 yards to the 4-yard line. Karam bulldozed his way into the end zone again to give the Comets a 14-0 lead with 11:42 to go in the first half. Hazleton had a drive stalled half way through the second quarter as a result of back to back penalties. The Cougars were whistled for nine penalties totaling 60 yards in the game. Senior running back Brian Campbell burst through the line and sprinted 22 yards to the Cougar 44. A few players later, however, Show stepped in front of a Chad Hoffman pass and returned it 56 yards to the Cougar 10-yard line as time expired. Hazleton appeared to have adjusted their game plan at the half and came out running the ball on a series of sweeps that seemed to perplex Abington Heights defenders. Senior Yousef Guzman shed two tackles and broke off a run to the outside for 13 yards early in the third period. That run was followed by an impressive 60-yard jaunt down the right side line by Brian Campbell that led to a touchdown. The score cut the Comet lead to 14-6. Abington Heights wasted no time in responding to the Cougar score. Sophomore running back Sean Rock ripped off a 46-yard run down to the Hazleton 20-yard line. Three plays later Pasqaulichio hit a diving Show in the corner of the end zone with a 16-yard touchdown pass that extended the Comets lead to 21-6 with 8:41to go in the third quarter.

CMYK ➛ THE TIMES LEADER Cano’s double rallies Yankees NEW YORK — Robinson Cano gave the Yankees the lead for the second straight game against Toronto, this time hitting a two-run double in the seventh inning to exceed 100 RBIs, and New York rallied to beat the Blue Jays 6-4 on Saturday. Cano lined a 2-2 pitch from reliever Casey Janssen to the wall in center field to score Curtis Granderson and Alex Rodriguez, back in the lineup after missing a week with a sprained left thumb. Ricky Romero (13-10) was cruising along after giving up a two-run homer to Francisco Cervelli and an RBI single to Eduardo Nunez in the third until he hit Granderson in the back with a curveball with one out in the seventh and walked Rodriguez. Red Sox 12, Rangers 7 BOSTON — Carl Crawford hit a grand slam as the Boston Red Sox scored eight runs in the fourth inning and snapped a two-game skid with a 12-7 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday. Jarrod Saltalamacchia had a two-run homer during Boston’s big inning, which featured eight hits as the Red Sox sent 13 batters to the plate and bounced back from a 10-0 loss to the Rangers the night before. Erik Bedard (5-9) earned his first win since joining Boston in a trade with Seattle. The Red Sox averaged just 3.3 runs in his first three starts, but gave him plenty of support this time. By the time the fourth inning was over, Boston had a 9-3 cushion. New York ....................................... Boston ............................................

PETERSBURG, Fla. — B.J. Upton had five RBIs, Wade Davis pitched effectively into the seventh inning and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-3 on Saturday night.

IL BASEBALL SWB Yankees stumble late, allow PawSox to clinch division crown By By KEVIN RYDER For The Times Leader PAWTUCKET, R.I. – Two forgettable innings for Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre led to a 12-7 defeat to Pawtucket at McCoy Stadium Saturday night, giving the Pawsox their first International League North Division title since 2003. The Yankees (71-68) clung to 7-5 lead heading into the eighth inning before Eric Wordkemper and Kevin Whelan combined to allow seven runs to score, three coming on a go-ahead homer from Pawtucket (79-61) designated hitter Ryan Lavarnway. Whelan, the fifth pitcher for 12 RED SOX 7 YANKEES SWB in the game, actually struck out the side in the inning, but allowed Lavarnway’s bomb as well as two-out, two-run singles to Jose Iglesias and Joey Gathright. “We scratched some runs across, and even added an insurance run, we thought, to make it 7-5,” said Scranton/Wiles-Barre manager Dave Miley. “But when you go out and hit the first guy and walk the next guy, you are just asking for trouble against a good hitting club like Pawtucket. That’s how it ended up and that’s part of the reason we are on the outside looking in.” The Yankees almost were able to overcome a forgettable outing by top pitching prospect Manuel Banuelos. The 20-year-old lefty didn’t make it out of the second inning as he allowed five runs on four hits and five walks before being pulled with two outs in the second and the bases loaded. It marked his shortest outing of the season for Banuelos (3-3), including 20 starts in Double-A Trenton and seven with the Yankees. In his final Triple-A start of the season, Banuelos threw 57 pitches in the outing, just 26 of which were strikes. “The command was the issue,” said SWB manager Dave Miley. “It was one of those nights. As bad as it was for him, we battled back and then imploded there in the eighth.” In his last outing, at home against Pawtucket on Aug. 29, Banuelos was nearly perfect, pitching a 7-inning complete game in the opener of a doubleheader, allowing one hit and walking two. He had won his previous two starts, and had failed to pitch into the fifth inning in just one previous start with SWB. The outing didn’t start out well for Banuelos, who ran into trouble after getting two outs in the bottom of the first. A Daniel Nava bloop single to center scored the first run of the inning, then Will Middlebrooks blasted his first Triple-A homer, a grand slam to right field to put the Pawsox ahead, 5-1. Despite the early hole, the Yankees battled back throughout the game. Jorge Vazquez and Austin Romine each had RBI ground outs in the third inning, then Ramiro Pena added an RBI single in the fifth to close the gap to 5-4. In the top of the sixth, Doug Bernier put the Yankees ahead with a two-run double down the rightfield line to take a 6-5 lead. The lead was extended to 7-5 in the eighth when Greg Golson singled to score Jordan Parraz, who tripled to lead off the inning. The lead was short lived. Notes: The two teams combined to use 10 pitches in the game, who threw a total of 355 pitches . . . Pena, Parraz and Kevin Russo each had two-hit games for the Yankees as part of a 10-hit attach . . . Hector Noesi pitched a scoreless inning of relief in the sixth, allowing a hit and striking out two. CMYK PAGE 8C ➛ SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2011 N F L THE TIMES LEADER A quick look at the NFL season to come plant Jimmy Clausen as No. 1 soon enough, but the chants of “CAM! CAM! CAM!” have already begun in Carolina. By RANDY COVITZ McClatchy Newspapers Coaches wield the power on NFL teams, and this season eight of those teams will have new men in charge, the most since 2006, when 10 teams made coaching changes. Two of the new guys, Minnesota’s Leslie Frazier and Dallas’ Jason Garrett, were promoted after finishing the 2010 season in interim roles. Denver’s John Fox spent nine seasons as the coach at Carolina. The other five — Carolina’s Ron Rivera, Cleveland’s Pat Shurmur, Oakland’s Hue Jackson, San Francisco’s Jim Harbaugh and Tennessee’s Mike Munchak — are first-time NFL coaches. There’s little question Garrett and Jackson are the two newcomers working for the most impatient owners. Garrett led the Cowboys to a 5-3 record last year after Wade Phillips was fired by Jerry Jones following a 1-7 start. Garrett is Jones’ sixth coach since the Cowboys last won a Super Bowl, after the 1995 season. Oakland’s last two coaches, Lane Kiffin and Tom Cable, ended up in legal squabbles over money and left on bad terms. In both cases, 82-yearold Al Davis provided a boot out the door with scathing critiques. Jackson, by contrast, has taken to calling Davis “coach” in public forums and is unapologetic about seeking his advice and counsel. The Raiders went 8-8 last year under Cable (6-0 in the AFC West) after seven consecutive seasons of 11 or more losses. Jackson expects the Raiders to contend for a Super Bowl this season. “Why not us? Why not the Raiders?” Jackson said. “We’re trying to win a championship. It’s what I talk about.” THREE COACHES TO WATCH Texans’ Gary Kubiak Kubiak was one of 10 coaches hired in 2006. He’s had just one winning season and Mark Ingram, Saints RB Saints may have a steal in 5-9, 215-pounder from Alabama . The 2009 Heisman winner looks capable of 1,000-yard/10 TD season. Corey Liuget, Chargers DE This was a guy the Chiefs could have used (6-3, 300pounder is prototypical run?stopper), but Chargers snapped him up with the 18th overall pick. Could be the starter opposite Luis Castillo. Aldon Smith, 49ers OLB Didn’t take long for Smith, the seventh overall pick from Missouri and Raytown, to take a starting spot from Ahmad Brooks. Mark Herzlich, Giants LB Missed all of 2009 at Boston College because of battle with cancer. Went undrafted and Giants signed him as free agent. Talented player who wiill find a role on the team. NFL PREDICTIONS AFC East New York Jets: Rex Ryan has done something no one else has — figure out Bill Belichick. AFC North AP PHOTO New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady could be hauling in another MVP award this season. the Texans still have yet to make the playoffs. Houston failed to capitalize on Indianapolis’ vulnerability last year, and after a 4-2 start finished 2-8 for a 6-10 record. The Texans won’t have to wait long to find out how they stack up: They open against the Colts, whom they beat 3424 in last year’s opener in Houston. Chargers’ Norv Turner It’s amazing that Turner keeps his job after the Chargers disappoint year after year. Their talent was superior to the rest of the AFC West last season, when they led the NFL in total offense and defense only to be undermined by horrid special teams. Poor starts have haunted them, too: They opened 2-5 last year and couldn’t overtake the Chiefs, and began 2-3 before winning 10 straight in 2009. Chiefs’ Todd Haley This is a make-or-break year for Haley, who is in the third year of a four-year contract. It’s never a good idea to have a coach go into a lame-duck season, so the Chiefs will likely offer him an extension before the season is over or hand him a pink slip if they slide back. Making the decision tougher? They might improve but not have the record to show for it thanks to a tougher schedule this year. THREE TEAMS READY TO SHOW THEIR POWER Top draft pick Cam Newton will start for the Carolina Panthers this season. Houston Texans Already had NFL rushing champion in Arian Foster and gifted WR in Andre Johnson. Brought in Wade Phillips to install a 3-4 front and drafted DE J.J. Watt. drafting DEs Adrian Clayborn and Da’Quan Bowers early aids the pass rush. Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo has recovered from broken clavicle, offensive line has been upgraded, Rob Ryan has been brought in to fix the defense. THREE TEAMS THAT LACK FIREPOWER Cincinnati Bengals With a rookie QB in Andy Dalton; new offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, who has spent most of his career in Arena League; and a new playmaker in rookie A.J. Green, concerns abound in Cincinnati. Jacksonville Jaguars Improved from 3-13 to 10-6 in 2010. QB Josh Freeman broke through last year, and Philip Rivers, Chargers QB Directed NFL’s most prolific offense in 2010, throwing for 4,710 yards, 101.8 passer rating and 30 TDs despite missing WR Vincent Jackson for 11 games and TE Antonio Gates for six. Tom Brady, Patriots QB Won his second MVP last year and there’s no reason to think Brady, 34, will slow AFC South Indianapolis Colts: Would be first team to reach the playoffs in 10 consecutive seasons. AFC West San Diego Chargers: Just too much talent on both sides of the ball. AFC wild cards New England Patriots, Baltimore Ravens: Ravens get four wins vs. Browns, Bengals. Michael Vick, Eagles QB NFC East Chosen Comeback Player of the Year in 2010 after missing two full seasons and spending 2009 as a backup in Philly. New cadre of supporting players should only accentuate his passing and running skills. Philadelphia Eagles: There’s just too much hype surrounding this team. Owner Wayne Weaver spent big, handing huge contracts to Aaron Rodgers, Packers QB LBs Paul Posluszny ($45 milCareer passer rating of 98.4 lion) and Clint Session ($29M) ranks No. 1 in NFL history and and safety Dawan Landry 12,394 passing yards during ($27.5M). But QB and coach2008-10 ranks No. 2 in league ing are still big issues. history behind only Kurt Warner (12,612 in 1999-2001) for Denver Broncos most in a QB’s first three seasons as a starter. The Kyle Orton-Tim Tebow QB question is the kind of Ndamukong Suh, Lions DT thing that will split a locker room. And Dennis Allen is It’s been a long time since a their sixth defensive coordefensive player was selected dinator in as many years, so league MVP, but the reigning continuity will be a problem NFL Defensive Rookie of the for a unit that was anemic in Year had 10 sacks in 2010 and 2010. is certainly in the heads of passers and blockers. FIVE MVP CANDIDATES Tampa Bay Bucs down after leading the league with a 111.0 passer rating, throwing for 36 TDs and guiding the Patriots to a leaguebest 14-2 mark. Pittsburgh Steelers: Ben Roethlisberger is available for all 16 games this year. FIVE POWERFUL ROOKIES Cam Newton, Panthers QB Reigning Heisman winner from Auburn (above) will sup- NFC North Green Bay Packers: No NFC team has made back-to-back Super Bowl trips since the Packers 14 years ago. NFC South New Orleans Saints: How’d they lose to Seattle in the playoffs last year? NFC West St. Louis Rams: Who do you like at QB, Sam Bradford or Seattle’s Tarvaris Jackson?

For some reason, his car just seems faster than any other machine on the track. Every move he makes is the right one, even though he’s been driving with a sore left ankle. This much he does know: When you get on a roll like this, you want to ride it as long as you can. Keselowski would love to keep it going right through the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. “It’s been an amazing run,” he said at Atlanta Motor Speedway, where he’s preparing for today’s next-to-last event before NASCAR’s 10-race playoff begins. “We’ll just ride the wave and hopefully it works out for us.” Keselowski has won two of the last four races — and finished second and third in the others. His performance over the last month has virtually locked up at least a wild card in the NASCAR playoff, and it’s even more amazing since he’s done all this after breaking his left ankle during a road course practice. Some wonder if he’s been able to step up his performance in the top series because he’s skipped the last four Nationwide races, giving his injured ankle more time to heal. Keselowski clearly isn’t buying that theory. He returned to his Nationwide car for the race Saturday night after putting in 66 laps of practice with his Cup team in the No. 2 Dodge. “I wish I could pinpoint what it is,” Keselowski said. “I have a ALL JUNK CARS & TRUCKS WANTED Free Removal.

He’s shown plenty of bravado, earning the nickname “Bad Brad” for his no-holds-barred driving style. He’s had several frightening run-ins with Carl Edwards and tussled with current Cup points leader Kyle Busch in a Nationwide race last summer. This season, he’s earned plenty CALL AHEAD FOR TEE TIMES - Must Present Coupon - Valid Up To Four Players Exp. 9-15-11 of respect for not only his success on the track, but the way he carried on after the practice crash at Road Atlanta. He smashed into a wall at an estimated 100 mph when his brakes failed, a blow that was harder than most because it wasn’t an energy-absorbing barrier. He came back four days later for a gutty win at Pocono. Keselowski was edged by Marcus Ambrose for a second straight win at Watkins Glen, took third at Michigan and won again last week on the high-banked bull ring at Bristol.

By ZACHARY DOLEIDEN For The Times Leader WILKES-BARRE – Mike Carriglitto, of Pottstown, won the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Half Marathon on Saturday in WilkesBarre, while John Evangelista, of Blakely, won the 10K division of the race. “It definitely wasn’t any easier running this race than it was (running it) last year,” Carriglitto said. “Once I passed the leader of the 10K race, I just slowed my pace and coasted from there.” Carriglitto finished the half marathon with a time of1hour,17 minutes, 37 seconds. The race drew 261 runners from 11 states to River Commons Park in downtown Wilkes-Barre. Proceeds from the event went to support local adoption and foster activities throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania. “Our goal in sponsoring these races is to raise awareness for adoption,” said Steve Kepig, president of the Northeastern Pennsylvania branch of Wendy’s. “So many kids need homes in this country, and we’ve really tried to turn this into a family event to underlie the reason we’re here, which is to find good families for children who need them.” The benefactor made the victory special for Carriglitto. “I was actually in foster care for eight years,” he said, “so I try to give back to that whenever I can, and this race is a great way for me to do that.” The half marathon and 10K were run on the same course, which was a circuit through Wilkes-Barre, including the Wilkes University and King’s College campuses. The runners participating in the half marathon ran the course twice, while those taking part in the10K ran just one lap. The start-finish line was located at the corner of River and West Northampton Street. Evangelista won the 10K in a time of 37:00. “Today’s win was nice and the overcast conditions were ideal for runners,” Evangelista said. “I’m 42 years old, so if I can go out and run at a six-minute pace, I’m happy with that.” The top woman in the 10K was Samantha Snulais of St. Clair. She crossed the finish line 40:34 into the race and placed fourth overall. Deedra Porfirio, of West Pittston, was the top overall woman in the half marathon, crossing the finish line in 1:26:17. She placed sixth overall in her first effort at that distance. “This was only my first half marathon, so I’m kind of thrilled,” Porfirio said. “Once the woman I was running with finished in the 10K, I just settled into a comfortable pace and was able to finish strong.” Top 20 finishers in 10K: 1.

Rome and Tori Gerlach in It seems that Rome may have Robbins Races. lost a few seconds when she was By ROBERT MINER For The Times Leader DALLAS TWP. – Holy Redeemer High School junior Marissa Durako pulled off a big surprise Saturday at Letterkenny Fields. She ran to victory in the varsity girls 5K run – the premier race of the day at the Cliff Robbins Sr. Memorial High School Invitational – breaking the tape in 19 minutes, 52 seconds. “I wasn’t expecting to win here today,” Durako said. “I knew that Regan Rome and Tori Gerlach were here. And I had never defeated either of them before.” Gerlach, a senior from Pennridge who won the Class AAA state championship last year in the 3,200 meters, was the favorite. Her runner-up finish was 12 seconds behind Durako. Kate Scott, a junior from Council Rock North, finished third in 20:19. Scranton Prep sophomore Tessa Barrett finished fourth in 20:31. Rome, a sophomore from Dallas, who won the Varsity Girls 5K last year, finished fifth, 11 seconds behind Barrett. “Tori led throughout most of the race,” Durako said. “With about1,000 meters to go, I caught up to her. Then, on a downhill, I let myself go. I got in front of her and just kept pushing. I knew Regan and Tori had good kicks. And I’m not known for having a good kick. So I wasn’t sure if I could hold them off. But I did. I’m really happy with my performance. But it was a battle right to the end.” A real battle continued right to the end in the junior varsity girls 3K when Pittston Area eighth grader Tara Johnson claimed a one-second win over Ally Rome, an eighth grader from Dallas. Johnson’s winning time was 12:05. “I pushed the entire way,” Johnson said. “Throughout the race I just kept trying to keep pace with (Rome) and waiting for her to tire. I finally caught and passed her right at the beginning of the chute.” SOKOLOSKI Continued from Page 1C slowed by the pace vehicle. The driver had pulled over so as to not run over the pads that register the chip timing. Levi Upham, an eighth grader from Northeast Bradford, ran to victory in the junior varsity boys 3K, finishing in 10:43. He outran Dom Hockenbury, an eighth grader from Lake-Lehman, by eight seconds. Kyle Perry, a freshman from Scranton Prep, finished third, one second behind Hockenbury. “I passed two guys and took the lead at the 1-mile marker,” Upham said. “Me and (Perry) battled for about 300 meters. Then I put on a surge and took control and just kept control to the finish.” Sean Burke, a senior from Abington Heights, ran to victory in the varsity boys 5K. Burke broke the tape in 16:58. Two juniors from Northeast Bradford, Curt Jewett (17:09) and Sam Williams (17:17) finished second and third. “I ran in second and third place for the first two miles,” Burke said. “At mile 2, I started reeling in Curt. I caught and passed him on a downhill with about a halfmile to go. Once I had the lead, I hammered it to the finish. I gapped him by enough and was able to hold on for the win.” Wyoming Valley Striders 37th Annual Cliff Robbins Sr. Memorial High School Invitational The top-25 finishers in each race received trophies.

He sparked two touchdown drives, and would have scored more if two perfectly-placed deep throws weren’t dropped by Penn State receivers. “Yeah, the drops kind of did hurt,” Bolden said. “But you’ve got to take them in stride. All I can do is just go out there and do what I can do. I’m very confident. I felt like I took advantage of what I had.” What Penn State has them playing right now is a game of musical chairs. And in that kind of contest, there’s room enough for only one winner. No matter which capable competitor loses out. hands as opposed to Bolden’s. “We throw balls in different places. I think guys struggle with that sometimes.” Maybe that’s why Penn State’s pass catchers dropped terrific throws by each quarterback. So even during an offensive explosion of 41 points, both of Penn State’s signal callers became a little defensive. “When I’m in there, we just have a better vibe,” McGloin said. “We move the ball a lot better.” He makes a good point. McGloin sparked the Nittany Lions to 21 points during his four series’ of work. “Just trying to show them the Paul Sokoloski is a columnist for The way I operate the offense,” Times Leader.

As habitat chairman for the North Mountain Branch of the Quality Deer Management Association, Germick wanted to make improvements to the vast landscape of State Game Lands 57. With limited staff and time, the Pennsylvania Game Commission did manage to plant and maintain a fair number of food plots on SGL 57, but Germick knew more could be done. But would it be possible to successfully plant food plots in the numerous open areas and abandoned fields that dot the game lands? After all, these areas hadn’t seen a plow in decades. “A lot of people questioned would things like corn and soybeans grow there,” Germick said. “We were pretty sure we could do it.” Five years later, it’s clear that Germick and the other members of the North Mountain Branch have proven that food plots could not only be established in the soils of SGL 57, but they can thrive. For example, more than 18 acres of plots were planted this year, and they have all grown into a lush, green oasis that benefits not only deer and turkey but all species of wildlife. That includes acre plots seeded with mixes of brassica, buckwheat and oats along with towering stands of field corn mixed with soybeans. And with the crops come wildlife. Deer, bear and turkeys are frequent visitors to the food plots that dot SGL 57. So too are small game species, songbirds and even a variety of insects. Chris Denmon, president of the North Mountain Branch, said while hunting opportunities are created by the food plots, that’s not the main reason behind creating them. Most of the volunteers who spend hours working on the food plots don’t even hunt in the area, he said. And the benefits derived by wildlife last far beyond the fall hunting seasons. “These plots provide food and cover well into winter at a time when wildlife needs it most,” Denmon said. “This is for everybody, no matter what your stance is on deer management. One thing we can all agree on is the importance of habitat,” Germick added. “Everyone who uses the game lands, including hikers and bikers, can benefit from the food plots and the wildlife they attract.” While the work is done by volunteers, the food plots still carry a cost due to the machinery, seed, fertilizer and spray that is needed. To help offset the costs, Chesapeake Energy Development contributed $10,000 to the QDMA chapter last year and another $5,000 this year. Jane Clements, Chesapeake’s coordinator of corporate development, said sponsoring the food plot program fits the corporation’s long tradition of partnering with landowners, land trusts and outdoor enthusiasts to improve natural areas. “Pennsylvania is blessed with thou- OUTDOORS Gas industry needs to pay its fair share T SUBMITTED PHOTO North Mountain Branch of the Quality Deer Management Association vice president Steve Germick, Jane Clements of Chesapeake Energy and QDMA branch president Chris Denmon stand in front of a corn field planted on State Game Lands 57 this spring.

Seminar scheduled SUBMITTED PHOTO Corn stands tall in a food plot planted on State Game Lands 57 this summer by members of the Quality Deer Management Association. The North Mountain Branch of the Quality Deer Management Association will host a seminar next week to raise money for food plot plantings. On Saturday, Sept. 10, world-renowned outdoors writer and photographer Charles Alsheimer will host a deer hunting seminar, discussing deer biology, hunting techniques and his research on the rut. The seminar will be held at the Cross Creek Community Church on 370 Carverton Road in Trucksville. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the seminar begins at 7 p.m. Door prizes and raffles will be held. Alsheimer’s books will be available for purchase as well. Tickets are $5, and children under 16 are free. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the QDMA booth at the Luzerne County Fair, Matt’s Shooting Supplies, Sweet Valley Hardware, Sutton Archery or at the door the night of the event. For more information, contact Chris Denmon at 477-2238 or email [email protected] sands of acres of state forests and game lands within easy access to all Pennsylvanians for public enjoyment, and we’re proud to help ensure their continued viability. It’s partnerships like this that enhance the quality of life for everyone in the communities where we live, work and raise our families,” Clements said. Germick said in addition to Chesapeake other groups have helped as well, including the Red Rock Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation and PGC Land Management Officer Bill Williams and his three-man Food and Cover crew. Williams said the QDMA food plots successfully augment those planted by his crew and expand the diversity. “With the buckwheat, chicory and soybeans that they’ve put in, it really expanded the variety of food sources available for wildlife up there,” Williams said. “State Game Lands 57 is almost 50,000 acres. With a three-man crew to manage that, the efforts of QDMA and other groups are a tremendous help that ultimately benefits game and non-game species alike.” Germick said there are plenty of open areas on SGL 57 to accommodate more food plots in the future. He hopes to plant more next year, but it is dependent on volunteer help and funding. “There’s a lot of opportunity to do more, but how much we can do is dictated by how much money and help we can get,” he said. ation, Quality Deer Management Association and Ducks Unlimited.

The tour will pass habitat The ability for all issuing agents to improvement projects completed by sell these reduced-fee licenses to Pennthe SGL 57 Food and Cover Corps sylvania resident active-duty military, crew, National Wild Turkey FederNational Guard and Reservists is the result of Governor Tom Corbett signing Senate Bill 387 into law on July 7. The bill, sponsored by Senate Game and Fisheries Committee Chairman Richard Alloway II, unanimously passed the Senate on Feb. 28, and was passed unanimously in the House on June 28. Prior to the change in law, which now is Act 64 of 2011, qualifying active-duty military personnel could purchase these reduced-fee licenses only from a county treasurer’s office or a Game Commission office. To qualify for the reduced-fee military personnel hunting license, including U.S. Coast Guard members, applicants must be a resident of Pennsylvania on active and full-time duty in the U.S. Armed Forces. They also must be assigned currently to a facility outside of Pennsylvania, and be on temporary leave in Pennsylvania. All applicants must provide documentation of: Pennsylvania being their home of record; their military status; their official orders showing that they are stationed outside this Commonwealth; and their leave papers. To qualify for the reduced-fee resident Pennsylvania National Guard (Army or Air National Guard) hunting license or resident Reserves hunting license, applicants must be a qualified resident who, within the previous 24 months, has been deployed overseas as a member of the Pennsylvania Army National Guard or Air National Guard on active federal service, or a reserve component of the armed forces for a period of 180 consecutive days or more, or was released early from such service because of injury or disease incurred in the line of duty. Only one Pennsylvania National Guard or Reserves hunting license may be issued for each qualifying deployment of a person applying for this license. All applicants must provide documentation of: Pennsylvania being their home of record; their military status or discharge papers if applicable; their individual or unit orders showing the return date from overseas. “It has been brought to our attention that military personnel may only have a laminated card showing their orders,” said Dot Derr, Game Commission Bureau of Administrative Services director. “Our understanding is that the applicant would be able to print the forms needed from his or her computer. Therefore, in order for a reduced-fee military license to be issued, military personnel must provide issuing agents with a printed copy of the paperwork required.” OUTDOOR NEWS TOM VENESKY he coal industry does it. PENNDOT does to. And so should the gas indus- try. Charged with protecting fish, amphibians, reptiles and the habit in which they live, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission has a pretty large workload. Part of it includes reviewing permits for any encroachments to those habitats, issuing violations and working with agencies to avoid them. I spoke to PFBC executive director John Arway about that this last week, and he said some of those agencies contribute funding to help the Fish and Boat Commission remain efficient at what they do. PENNDOT, he said, provides funding so the PFBC can dedicate two staff members to review transportation permits. And the coal industry, according to Arway, provides federal dollars derived from a tax that is allotted to the agency to help with the review of mining permits. But the gas industry? “We don’t get a nickel,” Arway said. Considering that drilling for Marcellus Shale natural gas has created an enormous workload for the PFBC – to the tune of 5,000 permits annually which would cost the agency almost $2 million if it committed staff solely to review the permits, it seems fair that the gas industry should contribute something to help offset the cost. Considering that PENNDOT and the coal industry do it, it seems obvious that the gas companies should as well. And, according to Arway, they want to. “An industry representative supports a share of an impact fee going to Fish and Boat,” Arway said. “They understand that by us getting funding, the permits would be reviewed and flow more quickly.” But here’s where it gets sticky. Arway said there are a variety of bills that would enact an impact fee on the natural gas industry. Some of the bills include the PFBC as a recipient for some of the money that would be generated, while others leave the agency out of the mix. Arway is adamant that an impact fee not only needs to be implemented, but his agency needs to be included. He told Governor Tom Corbett just that during a recent kayak trip down the Susquehanna River. “The governor’s office seems to be receptive to our needs,” Arway said. And the needs are many. Right now, the PFBC is taking staff away from their regular duties to handle gas industry permits and issues. Among those issues are Erosion and Sedimentation violations, which basically result from disturbed areas not being properly stabilized and allowing soil to erode away and enter waterways. By this spring, the number of E & S violations resulting from gas pipeline projects already exceeded the number of violations from all of last year. With funds from an impact fee, the PFBC would be able to return staff to their normal duties so areas like law enforcement aren’t neglected, and hire more people to take care of the immense workload created by the gas industry. It would put PFBC staff back where they belong and ensure that the 5,000 permits generated by the gas industry are handled efficiently and, most importantly, our aquatic resources will be better protected. “The longer we go on without the fee, the greater the risk of an impact,” Arway said. “The industry came to Pennsylvania quickly and we weren’t prepared for it.” As gas wells dot our landscape at a rapid pace, it’s time to make sure the PFBC is prepared.

SEDER [email protected] When Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs opened its “temporary” slots parlor in November of 2006, it added 425 people to the existing staff of 148 at the Pocono Downs race track. As its fifth year as a gaming facility approaches, nearly 2,000 people work on the property. The steady growth has been buoyed by the permanent slots casino, which debuted in July 2008, and the addition of table games two years later. At each step, the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority has given job creation projections to the state’s gaming control board, and to date has lived up to those promises. The authority, which also operates its flagship Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut, told the board there would be 1,000 employees when the permanent slots facility opened. There were. It said tables would bring an additional 600 jobs. They did. As of July 1, the state reported 1,600 Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs employees at the Plains Township property. That does not include nearly 300 more who work on site at establishments not owned by Mohegan Sun, such as Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Johnny Rockets or Bar Louie. An additional 150 people are employed offsite at the Downs off track wagering parlors in Carbondale, Hazleton, Allentown and East Stroudsburg. Just counting on-site Mohegan Sun employees, Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs ranks fourth out of the state’s 10 existing casinos, in terms of employment. It trails only Parx Casino, just outside of Philadelphia in Bensalem, Bucks County, which has more than 2,000 employees; Harrah’s Chester Casino & Racetrack in Chester, CLARK VAN ORDEN PHOTO ILLUSTRATION/THE TIMES LEADER which has more than 1,800 employees, and the Rivers Casino Employees of Mohegan Sun leave the break area.

Solar slump dims hopes for ‘green-tech’ By MIKE TAUGHER and PETER DELEVETT San Jose Mercury News SAN JOSE, Calif. — The collapse of a once-promising solar panel manufacturer may signal a shaky future for a green jobs sector targeted for government stimulus spending, experts said Wednesday. Two main factors led to the bankruptcy Solyndra of Fremont, Calif: China exporting increasingly cheap solar panels and the company using a design that made sense only when costs of materials were high, said Severin Borenstein, a business professor at the University of California-Berkeley’s and co-director at the school’s Energy Institute. The collapse also exposed the folly of stimulus programs that venture too far downstream into areas where governments are trying to pick winners, he said. Solyndra had received a $535 million federal loan guarantee. “I think this is a leading indicator that there is going to be a lot of disappointment about (public) investments in downstream renewable energy that were touted as building new sectors that would create thousands of jobs,” Borenstein said. Solyndra was one of about 40 projects funded since 2009 through a U.S. Department of Energy loan program that helped major wind, solar, nuclear and ethanol projects. Together, those projects are expected to create about 60,000 jobs, according to the DOE. The department on Wednesday defended the Solyndra loan, saying public investment is needed to help U.S. companies keep pace with heavily subsidized Chinese firms. “The alternative is simply walking off the field and letting the rest of the world pass us by,” DOE public affairs director Dan Leistikow wrote in a blog post. Solyndra also reportedly received more than $1 billion in venture capital over the past five years from firms including Redpoint Ventures and U.S. Venture Partners. Other reported investors included Virgin Group entrepreneur Richard Branson and the Walton family, heirs to the Walmart fortune. By JAY PRICE McClatchy Newspapers C RAVEN COUNTY, N.C. — Before Hurricane Irene smacked his tender tobacco plants sideways, David Parker was headed for a terrific crop, maybe his best in 32 years of farming. Now, as Parker rushes to save a few acres of shredded leaves before they rot on the dying stalks, the math looks different. “I’ve never had a year I didn’t make money farming, but I think this will be the one that gets us there,” he said Wednesday, driving up a dirt road between a beaten-down cotton field and a 17-acre patch of dejected-looking tobacco. The green-gold tobacco leaves — which normally this time of year would be spread wide, waiting to be plucked, dried at a careful pace and taken to market — were hanging straight down, shriveled, with the stalks leaning the way that the wind had pushed them. That’s what this agricultural disaster looks like: wilted leaves, angled stalks, a tangle of cotton plants with fat bolls that had looked unusually promising but now might not open. Subtle stuff to everyone but the hundreds of farmers who, like Brown, now face what may be their worst losses ever. “That’s not vacation cottages. It’s these people’s whole way of making a living, and the impact will spread throughout all the people and businesses that rely on farmers,” said Graham Boyd, executive vice president of the Tobacco See IRENE, Page 3D See SOLAR, Page 4D Kick off National Coupon Month by fulfilling your BBQ needs FOR MOST OF YOU, every month is coupon month.

But that’s OK. Unions are good for the worker. You gotta love ’em. That’s the Labor Day message Americans have received for threequarters of a century from both organized labor and the National Labor Relations Board. These days the pushiness is still evident. You can see it in the non-optional rule that the NLRB, which is tasked with overseeing unions and the companies they work with, issued last week. The rule requires private-sector employers to post a notice reminding workers they have the right to unionize. You can also see the pushiness in the NLRB’s brazen behavioralism. Its plan to penalize Boeing for launching a new operation in (largely non-union) South Carolina rather than (heavily unionized) Washington state is just one recent example. But let’s question the premise behind the push. For although unions may be good for a worker, singular, they are not always good for workers, plural. Especially when it comes to finding a job. That’s the evidence from a natural experiment President Franklin D. Roosevelt inadvertently set in train when he enacted the basis of modern labor law, the Wagner Act of 1935. The law’s framers drew confidence from great labor heroes such as the bushy-browed tough guy John L. Lewis and the statesmanlike Samuel Gompers, the head of the American Federation of Labor, who helped Woodrow Wilson forge international labor legislation at the Versailles Peace Conference. As law, the Wagner Act was grand, creating the NLRB and setting the terms of the modern collective-bargaining system. It launched the era of the intensely aggressive “closed-shop” rule, under which a job applicant at a unionized company must belong to the union to be considered. The closed shop proved too pushy even for many union friends. In 1947, Congress edited the Wagner Act down into a more ambivalent, but still aggressive, law called the Taft-Hartley Act. Taft-Hartley ended the glory days of the closed-shop bullies. But it also allowed unions to demand dues, or the equivalent amount in fees, from the non-union workers who would now sit beside unionized ones. This compulsory payment inspired companies and states to push back yet again and write their own labor laws, state-level “right-to-work” legislation. Such laws generally sought to widen choice in regard to unions, and affirmed a non-member’s right to work without having to pay dues. Over the years, 22 states have enacted right-to-work laws. Anecdotal evidence suggests that employers, and many workers, prefer the right-to-work states. A look at Bureau of Labor Statistics data over recent decades gives substance to the impression that right-to-work means less unemployment. In 1990, the average jobless rate was 5.1 percent in right-towork states and 5.6 percent in other states. In 2000, it was 3.8 percent in right-to-work states and 4.1 percent in others. In July 2011, unemployment was 8.1 percent in right-to-work states and 8.4 percent in others. Were other factors than unions driving migration? Sure: weather, for starters. But three northern right-to-work states, Nebraska and the Dakotas, currently have unemployment levels of less than 5 percent, the envy of Minnesota and Michigan. A more serious rebuttal to the argument that right-to-work is good for workers involves pay levels. The median wage in right-to-work states is $14.74, almost two dollars lower than the median in other states. But that disparity narrows when you consider cost-of-living in rightto-work states is generally lower. The point is that the performance of unionized economies, especially heavily unionized ones, hasn’t been strong enough to warrant the unions’ arrogance or the ancient laws that institutionalize their clout. Workers, not the NLRB, and certainly not administrative labor courts, ought to make the call on unions. The best Labor Days will come in the future, when unions are truly voluntary.

CASINO Continued from Page 1D in Pittsburgh, which has about 1,700 on staff. The Sands Casino in Bethlehem is right behind Mohegan Sun with 1,588 employees. Eighth on the state’s list is Mount Airy Casino Resort near Mount Pocono, with 1,312 in its work force. That number does not, however, include the staff of its hotel, spa or golf course. Bobby Soper, president and chief executive officer of Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs, said the facility is proud to be among the largest employers in Luzerne County. He said filling the positions has not been a challenge. “We actually turn down 39 out of 40 applicants,” Soper noted. He said jobs are routinely open and just as quickly filled. In early 2010, the casino held a job fair for potential dealers to sign up for the casino’s in-house dealer training school. More than 2,000 people showed up. Of those, 350 were chosen for enrollment. “This area has a very rich pool of labor and a good work ethic,” Soper said. While he said the hiring is a constant, he said it’s nothing out of the ordinary for a large company. “Like every business, we have natural turnover. When you have 1,800 employees, you’re going to be hiring on a continual basis to replenish that natural turnover. It’s a fluid process,” Soper said. He said the turnover is not because the Mohegan Sun is a bad place to work. He pointed to the 425 original hires who came on board to open the temporary slots parlor. Of those, 340 still work at the casino. Soper said the number of people the casino employees is significant in this region. “For some areas, like Philadelphia, 2,000 jobs doesn’t mean as much as it means in Northeast Pennsylvania,” Soper said. Larry Newman, vice president of the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce, said Mohegan Sun is currently the third largest individual employer in Luzerne County, following Geisinger Health System and Wyoming Valley Health Care System respectively. Mohegan Sun is followed by T.J. Maxx, PPL, the U.S. Social Security Administration, and Pride Mobility Products — all of which have more than 1,000 employees in Luzerne County. “Mohegan Sun has met or surpassed each and every promise made to the residents of Northeast Pennsylvania,” said Todd Vonderheid, the chamber’s president. “They have become the corporate citizen we hoped and are now actively engaged in nearly every aspect of our community.” Soper said casinos have a tried-and-true formula for projecting the number of people that need to be hired based on factors including the number of slots, tables and square footage. Mohegan’s hiring track record compared to what was promised proves it the reliability of the planning system, he said. While Mohegan Sun officials have stuck close to the employment figures they projected in submissions to the state gaming board and at public hearings and events, Mount Airy has many fewer jobs than promised.

STEADY GROWTH The workforce at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs has grown year after year, according to information provided by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board and Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. On July 1, 2007, there were 506 Mohegan Sun employees. That grew to 782 a year later, then to 849 on July 1, 2009. By July 1, 2010, thanks to the implementation of table games, the employee figure rose to 1,371. The staff is now at 1,600. At Mount Airy, the growth has been more moderate. On July 1, 2008, there were 964 employees, the same amount one year later. On July 1, 2010, the total grew to 1,165 and today it stands at 1,312. The main culprit is the absence of 2,225 slot machines from the gaming floor. When Mount Airy officials estimated they would employ 1,000 people even prior to table games being legalized, the total was based on 5,000 slot machines being authorized. Instead, the casino was approved for 2,275 and as a result, total employment was at about 850 when the slots opened in October 2007. Today the total stands at about 1,300, thanks to the addition last summer of 72 table games. The casino promised 480 additional jobs if table games were approved, according to gaming control board records. The figure is closer to 400. While the original promise of casinos was property tax reduction, followed by jobs, there is one more bonus being realized, at least locally, Vonderheid said. “Mohegan Sun has created not only the direct jobs at the casino, but also a significant tourism attraction that has brought patrons from around the Mid-Atlantic and New England and it’s that traffic that has helped to sustain jobs at other venues in the region.” At Mount Airy, rather than an in-house dealer school, the casino partnered with Northampton County Community College. It’s one of many partnerships the resort has lined up or is working on finalizing. Other partners include Pocono Raceway, the Mountain Laurel Center for Performing Arts and local eateries and shops. “As a locally owned, family run casino and resort, Mount Ai- for Women & Girls Dakota Classic Short We have them! 158 Memorial Hwy. Shavertown 1.800.49.SHOES ry aims to provide an economic engine to Northeastern Pennsylvania and the Poconos,” said Tonia Lewis, Mount Airy’s vice president of marketing. “From partnering with Northampton Community College and providing curriculum in order to train local residents to become dealers to commissioning local artists to supply paintings for each and every hotel room, Mount Airy is conscious and committed to providing jobs to the region, whether it’s adding to our work force or hiring local vendors.” The local architecture and engineering design firm recently announced the addition of several new employees.

The bad news: Domestically, revenues rose only a fraction compared to the previous year’s, while actual movie attendance dropped for the fourth-straight year. Taken together, the summers of 2010 and 2011 combined for the smallest domestic audiences since the summers of 1997-98. Since peaking at a modern high of 653 million tickets sold in summer 2002, domestic attendance has wavered generally downward, dipping to 551 million in summer 2010 and sliding again this summer to 543 million, according to projections from boxoffice tracker One so-so summer can be an aberration, when the movies simply failed to grab fans. Two so-so summers in a row are a sign of the tough task studios face to keep butts in theater seats at a time when audiences have more entertainment options than ever. “One down summer you could lay at the doorstep of a lack of quality films, audience indifference, whatever. But more than one or two years becomes a trend, and we’re seeing this downward trend in attendance,” said analyst Paul Dergarabedian. “Emerging technology combined with an audience that is trying to figure out how they want to consume their entertainment is creating this situation.” Making matters worse, Hollywood took a weather hit last weekend, with business down steeply because many East Coast theaters closed to ride out Hurricane Irene. Many in Hollywood expected summer 2011 to be a knock-it-out- MCT PHOTOS David Parker, a farmer in Craven County in North Carolina, walks through his tobacco field that was damaged as Hurricane Irene swept through the area.

AP FILE PHOTO Robert Downey Jr. stars as billionaire industrialist Tony Stark in the summer blockbuster ’Iron Man.’ of-the-park season. The summer was jammed with superhero sagas, huge animated sequels and action franchises that studio executives predicted would quickly lift the industry out of a deep rut after the year began with a weak run of movies. Summer did erase most of this year’s deficit on revenues, which back in spring had been running as much as 20 percent behind last year’s. According to, domestic receipts from the first weekend in May through Labor Day weekend should finish at a record $4.38 billion, up 0.7 percent from summer 2010. But factoring in this year’s higher ticket prices, actual attendance will be down 1.4 percent. Studio executives get defensive comparing this year to last, saying the early part of 2010 made for an unfair contrast because blockbusters such as “Avatar” and “Alice in Wonderland” were keeping theaters jammed. By comparison, the early months of this year were a quiet time at theaters, digging a hole for a business that’s always looking for the next box-office record. “The challenge the whole industry found itself in was a testament to the films in the market last year,” said Dave Hollis, head of distribution at Disney. “It creates a story that is frankly less about 2011 than it is about the amazingness of 2010.” Still, some of this summer’s films delivered spectacularly, including $300 million megahits “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” and “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.” And while most franchise films packed in big crowds, they often did not live up to the domestic returns of their predecessors, among them “Cars 2,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” “The Hangover Part II,” “Kung Fu Panda 2” and “X-Men: First Class.” Surprise smashes such as “Bridesmaids,” “The Smurfs” and “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” were offset by duds like “Green Lantern” and “Cowboys & Aliens.” Except for the “Transformers” sequel, domestic audiences turned blasé about 3-D movies, with fans no longer as willing to shell out an extra few dollars for the added dimension. IRENE Continued from Page 1D Growers Association of North Carolina. “It’s a tragedy, just terrible, terrible stuff.” State and federal officials say it will be at least weeks before the full extent of the farm losses are known, but the effect on tobacco, which is grown in much of the area where the storm punched hardest, is extensive. “Most of the counties I cover, pretty much any tobacco still in the field is going to be close to a 100 percent loss,” said Dianne Farrer, a regional agronomist for the state who works in more than a dozen eastern counties, including some of the state’s biggest tobacco producers. “I’ve talked to several growers, and they’re just disheartened,” she said. “If it’s leaned over or knocked over, they can’t harvest mechanically, and if they don’t get in and harvest what’s left by hand, by the end of the week it will be lost.” Many cotton growers — often farmers who are also grow- Marcos Amezcua Jimenez stores tobacco leaves owned by David Parker. ing tobacco — could also take big hits. However, it will take awhile for them to be able to tell how badly the plants were damaged, unlike the tobacco that’s knocked over and tattered, Farrer said. Farmers can get federally backed crop insurance, and many are covered for losses of 70 percent or 75 percent of their harvest last year, Boyd said. Most, though, expected a bigger crop at better prices this year, so the gap between real losses and the insurance payments could be huge. It’s only designed as a safety net to help farmers pay the bills they piled up planting a year’s crops, not cover their expected profits, he said. Farm crews usually make about four harvest-time passes through tobacco fields. First, they take the lowest leaves, which ripen first, then work their way up as the leaves turn gold, taking a few leaves with each round. The later rounds are the most valuable. This year, drought had slowed the harvest. When the storm hit, many — including Parker — had done only one full round and part of the second. The real money was left vulnerable on the stalks. Some of Parker’s friends were calling around Wednesday, sharing what they had heard from their insurance adjusters. Parker’s told him to send his crew out in the fields to straighten up the stalks and pack the soil down around their roots so they will stay upright and recover. That works if plants are pushed over by an early-season storm while they’re still growing. But it’s a waste of time and labor this late in the season, Boyd said. “That’s throwing good money after bad,” he said. “And if they order them to go out and harvest this stuff, a lot of it is going to be such poor quality they won’t get anything for it anyway.” CMYK PAGE 4D ➛ SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2011 SMALL TALK B U S I N E S S THE TIMES LEADER OFFICE COACH U.S. recovery offers Petulance won’t resolve embarrassing mishap few opportunities By Marie G. McIntyre McClatchy-Tribune News Service By ANNA-LOUISE JACKSON and ANTHONY FELD Bloomberg News NEW YORK — More than 1 million self-employed Americans are no longer in business almost four years after the last recession began, as the economy constrains entrepreneurial activity and small-business job creation. The 18-month contraction that started in December 2007 initially resulted in more would-be business owners, as the number of people who work for themselves grew to 16.3 million in July 2008 from 15.7 million at the end of 2007, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Since then, the total has fallen about 10 percent to 14.7 million in July, the data show. Employer businesses -- those that provide work for individuals including the founder -- “have been starting in fewer numbers, with fewer workers and growing at a slower pace than in the past,” according to Robert Litan, a vice president at the Kansas City, Missouri-based Kauffman Foundation, which supports research on start-ups. “Therefore, these entrepreneurs are generating increasingly fewer new jobs for the U.S. labor market.” The number of new employer businesses dropped 24 percent to 505,473 on an annual basis in 2010 from 667,341 in 2006, according to Litan, who co-wrote a report published in July on smallbusiness job creation. Small companies employ about half the private-sector labor force, so it’s “very difficult” for the jobless rate to improve when they’re “not doing well, because they are too big a part of the economy,” said Scott Shane, professor of entrepreneurial studies at Case Western Reserve University. Their weakness is also “a very big problem” for office-supply retailers such as Staples, Office Depot and OfficeMax, which sell to small businesses, said Brad Thomas, an analyst with KeyBanc Capital Markets in New York. Same-store comparative sales for this industry have stagnated at an average 0 percent in the past two years, while other retailers experienced some rebound following recessionary declines, he said. The number of unincorporated businesses -- some of them freelancers who require only a computer and Internet connection — fell about 4 percent to 9.5 million in July from 9.9 million in December 2007, after reaching 10.6 million in July 2008, BLS data show. The number of incorporated selfemployed dropped about 11 percent to 5.2 million in July from 5.8 million in December 2007. Even as the decline in incorporated entrepreneurs appears to have moderated — the number grew 0.7 percent in July from a year ago — this group “has done little to return to where it was before the recession,” said Shane, a visiting scholar at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. That’s because entrepreneurs aren’t immune to the “crummy” economy of the past four years that also hurt larger companies, according to Susan Woodward, president and founder of Sand Hill Econometrics in Palo Alto, Calif. Woodward says a large portion of start-up failures may be a “return to normal.” Historically, entrepreneurs represented about 10.5 percent of all employment in the U.S. economy, she said. Beginning in 2003, this rose as high as 11.3 percent before falling to the historical average earlier this year. So she’s “less alarmed” about the long-term implications for the vibrancy of small-business activity. Small companies still face challenges, including access to financing and rising health-insurance costs, along with their exposure to struggling industries, Shane said. Q: I feel that I have been betrayed by one of my peers. “Chuck” and I are both senior vice presidents, reporting to the president of our company. In a recent executive team meeting, Chuck stated that an employee in my department has been intercepting and reading the president’s email for several months. Chuck has apparently known this for some time, but instead of telling me privately, he chose to throw me under the bus by revealing it in front of our boss. He called me naive for not knowing about it. After this humiliating betrayal, I’m not sure how to act around Chuck. Should I just speak to him when we have to work together and ignore him the rest of the time? A: This little soap opera raises so many interesting questions. Why is your fury directed at Chuck instead of the snooping employee? How did Chuck obtain his incriminating information? And isn’t the president angry that Chuck took so long to expose this outrageous misconduct? Despite my curiosity, I will try to focus on the question you actually asked. You say that Chuck mentioned this transgression in a meeting, then expressed surprise at your lack of awareness. This is not necessarily devious behavior, so prior experience must be causing you to question his intentions. If Chuck does wish to embarrass you, reacting like a pouting adolescent will only make the situation worse. By not speaking to him, you will escalate this incident into an ongoing feud, making others uncomfortable and making yourself look silly. A better approach would be to present your concerns in a mature, businesslike manner. For example: “Chuck, I was stunned when you mentioned Ed’s email snooping in our staff meeting. If you had come to me when you first learned of it, I could have taken immediate action. In the future, please tell me right away if you hear about inappropriate activities in my department, and I promise to do the same for you.” After that, drop the subject, but keep a close eye on Chuck. His future conduct should reveal whether he is a true adversary or simply a thoughtless person. I do hope you realize, however, that the real betrayer is the employee who infiltrated the president’s email account. I assume this person has now been fired. If not, then that’s the most baffling question of all. Q: Our boss frequently requests contributions for a charit- Marie G.

The venture firm, led by former state Controller Steve Westly, has nearly $200 million under management and invests primarily in clean-tech companies, including Tesla Motors. Dorsey noted that while overseas competitors have driven down profit margins and hurt solar companies like Solyndra, it also reduced costs for consumers. He also said his firm remains bullish on solar, “though they have to be approaching the business a little differently.” For example, he said, his portfolio includes a company that’s working to make the transmission of solar power more efficient. Borenstein said stimulus programs can be good, especially in recessions, but he said economists generally agree that government investments should not select particular technologies or businesses over others. On the other hand, such investments in basic research, traditional stimulus projects and recent investments in energy efficiency and weatherization make sense, he said. SOLAR Continued from Page 1D Private investors and Silicon Valley green tech investors acknowledged Solynda’s failure was a worrisome sign. “Obviously, when big deals like that go down it shakes up everybody’s confidence,” said Rob Pomeroy, CEO of Horizon Technology Finance, a Connecticut company that lends to venture-backed technology firms. Clean tech represents about a quarter of Horizon’s portfolio, although solar companies represent only a handful of its environmental investments, Pomeroy said “We’ve been very selective in this market, waiting for companies to have real revenues,” he said. “Then we keep our loan levels low, in a secured position.” The reasons for the caution, he said, are twofold: First, solar companies often don’t sell directly to end users, so their revenues can fluctuate depending on the for- tunes and enthusiasms of their resellers. Second, he and others noted that the sector is especially sensitive to changes in technology and commodity prices. “People have been predicting stronggrowthinthismarketfor10 years, and it’s coming,” Pomeroy said. “But it’s a lot slower than everyone expects.” The bankruptcy of a high-profile solar company like Solyndra, he added, will “slow down some of the enthusiasm that ... maybe wasn’t warranted.” The cost of solar panels has dropped by more than two-thirds in the past five years, mostly be- able group that she supports. Is this acceptable management behavior? A: No, managers should never personally solicit money from employees, even for a worthy cause. Because of the power differential, people may feel compelled to contribute, even if they prefer not to. If you have a helpful human resources department, consider asking the HR manager to have a chat with your civic-minded supervisor. But if that’s not an option, simply smile and say “I’m not able to give anything at this time, but I certainly admire you for supporting such a worthwhile organization.” Best Of The Back Mountain What are your top picks for our 2011 Readers Choice Awards?

It’s how the people in Washington reacted to it. I’ve never, ever in my lifetime seen more dislike for the other party on both sides. And the President is not leading us anyplace. I think the real problem in the United States, as far as the economy is concerned, is that not only the citizens but the corporations really don’t know what’s going to be happening between now and the next election. We’re sort of in almost a vacuum in terms of what’s going to happen. I am not optimistic about our economy getting much better. Cameron The fund had 10 percent of its money hiding out in cash at the end of July. Is that a sign that you’re feeling nervous? It’s higher than that right now. We really felt that we saw the economy was in difficulty, and we wanted to be only in companies that we think will do well no matter what the economy will be doing. So where do you invest? We only invest in things that we think are essential to people living in our country, whether we’re in food, or if we’re in health care, or we’re in energy. With energy, we are not as much interested in the price of oil going up or down. We are very, very interested in the way that the oil is coming into this country. (Much) comes from outside, and the only way that gets around the country is through pipelines. We are never going to send pipelines overseas. We have about 11 master limited partnerships (that own pipelines) in our fund now. And you like health care? Whether there’s a recession or there isn’t a recession, and whatever happens with all the new laws on health care, people will get certain types of diseases or cancer or whatever it might be. We think that health care is going to continue to be a very important part of the investment. One company we really like is Novo Nordisk, a drug company. They are the largest producer and seller of products to take care of the really horrible disease, diabetes — with all the overweight children around the world these days. They increased the dividend a little over 33 percent (in 2010, following a 25 percent increase in 2009). We were talking earlier about the fact that our economy is not doing so well. If we’re in companies that are increasing the dividend faster this year than last year, they’re really telling you something. Why own Nucor, a steel company? Won’t its profits fall if the global economy slows? There is no question about it that it’s an up-and-down cycle in the steel industry. And we have just been through what we think is the most difficult part. But they’ve increased the dividend 38 years in a row, and we think they really believe in rewarding their shareholders, and we think that (steel demand will improve). Look at how poor automobile sales were for a couple of years. Now it’s better. If we’re looking at the state of bridges or buildings, and after the big storm (Irene), they’re going to have put so many bridges in Vermont alone and up and down the East Coast. Weak economic data sink yields and eastern European economies will grow 5.3 percent this year, for example, according to estimates from the International Monetary Fund. That compares with 2.2 percent for advanced economies. Young, growing companies tend to plow their cash into new factories, research or other ways to drive even more growth. It’s only after they’ve matured that they tend to steer cash into dividend payments. But now, investors are often getting higher yields on emerging market stocks than they would if they owned the local country’s bonds, Howell says. That could drive demand higher for emerging market dividend stocks, as bond investors cross over after growing tired of low yields. To be sure, emerging market dividend-paying stocks declined with non-payers this summer on worries about inflation and slowing global economic growth The appeal of emerging market stocks is their fast growth. On the other end of the spectrum are dividend stocks: mature, steady companies that routinely return money to shareholders. But the twain does meet, and some mutual funds specialize in emerging market stocks that pay dividends. “Times are changing,” says Citi strategist Andrew Howell. He specializes in stocks from the Middle East, Africa and central and eastern Europe. Nearly 90 percent of these stocks now pay a dividend, Howell wrote in a recent report. That’s up from 70 percent a few years ago. The dividend-payers come from a variety of industries across developing economies: telecommunications, banking, construction, insurance and energy. Emerging market stocks have become synonymous with growth because they come from the economies expanding the fastest. Central Best of both worlds?

August’s losers This August was one most traders would like to forget. The S&P 500 fell 5.4 percent, and the Dow lost 4.1 percent of its value. But that was only after a month of record-breaking swings. The Dow had four straight days of 400-point swings, the first time that's happened in its 115-year history. A downgrade of U.S. debt sent markets into a tailspin. Investors also feared that Italy or Spain, Europe's third and fourth largest economies, would default on their debts and throw the global banking system into crisis. And discouraging economic reports seemed to indicate the U.S. could be slipping into another recession. Those concerns dented investors' confidence in the market as a whole. But some large companies fell far more than any of the major indexes. This screen, powered by FactSet, shows the stocks in the S&P 500 that did the worst in August.

Matthews Asia Dividend Treasury yields fell last week after more discouraging news arrived on the economy. Employers added zero jobs in August, pushing nervous investors to buy Treasurys in search of safety. When a bond’s price rises, its yield falls. Lower Treasury yields can pull down rates on various consumer loans. The average rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage is 4.22 percent, near its historic low.

17.93 16.72 -.02 -.02 CMYK SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2011 ➛ B U S I N E S S THE TIMES LEADER 708670 PAGE 8D CMYK VIEWS SECTION THE TIMES LEADER E SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2011 KEVIN BLAUM CARL LEUBSDORF IN THE ARENA OPINION Presidentially speaking, what have politics done? Obama can tell Congress to ‘sow turnips’ “THEREFORE, I respectfully request the opportunity to address a joint session of Congress on Sept. 7, 2011 at 8 p.m.” The president of the United States then goes before the Congress and the world to deliver a message of import from the grand rostrum in front of the ornate chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives. That’s how it’s done. At least that is how it used to be orchestrated, prior to the onset of hateful politics and a paralyzed government which, were it occurring in another democracy, could accurately be described as a constitutional crisis. President Obama’s request for a joint session was hand-delivered to the Speaker of the House on Wednesday. Republican John Boehner, in a stunning and unprecedented snub, retorted this way: “It is my recommendation that your address be held on the following evening, when we can ensure there will be no parliamentary or logistical impediments that might detract from your remarks.” A Senate historian stated, “the Senate Historical Office knows of no instance in which Congress refused the president permission to speak before a Joint Session of Congress.” Such is the disgrace in Washington. From the idyllic confines of Martha’s Vineyard, Obama recently said he would unveil his “jobs plan” this week — after Labor Day. On Wednesday he indicated it would be nice to do so before a joint session of the Congress. Any plan put forward by the president to reduce American unemployment is, at best, a year past due and as such does not require the trappings of a State of the Union address. This week, after Labor Day? A dumb idea. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney moved to pre-empt Obama by announcing he will delineate his “jobs program” on Tuesday. A scheduled televised debate among contenders for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif., is slated for Wednesday. On Thursday, the Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers host the New Orleans Saints in the first game of an NFL season that almost wasn’t. It will be televised live from the hallowed confines of Curly Lambeau Field, on Lombardi Avenue, in Wisconsin. Obama needs Wisconsin. Following the game America will begin focusing on Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011. President Obama should have chosen another week to deliver his jobs speech. GOP candidates and the voters interested in observing their debate deserve as much. And, if at all possible, a nationally televised event from the library of a former president need not be overshadowed by a sitting occupant of the White House. However, having made the request to address a joint session of Congress, no president should be rebuked by a speaker of the people’s House. Doing so diminishes both constitutional offices and, in this instance, Speaker Boehner especially. Not to be outdone, and upon learning of the speaker’s rebuff, Obama acquiesced yet again. Here’s hoping his jobs speech is a winner and competes favorably with ESPN’s buildup to NBC’s NFL broadcast. The football game and Wednesday’s Republican debate will appear in primetime. The president of the United States will not. Instead, Obama will pre-empt Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy beginning at 7 p.m. in the Eastern time zone, annoying another large demographic before the sun goes down. Faced with a similar slight, many people who have occupied the Oval Office, and certainly the president laid to rest in Simi Valley, would get in the car, travel the one mile to George Washington University and deliver that “jobs speech” on time and as scheduled — Sept. 7, 2011 at 8 p.m. But, of course, no speaker would dare refuse them.

The Wartime Contracting Commission urged Congress and the Obama administration to quickly put in place its recommendations to overhaul the contracting process and increase accountability.

She’smorepopularthanthepresident. She’s seasoned now. And she’s so careful in her public remarks that even at campaign fundraisers, she sometimes relies on a teleprompter. Observers said her top causes — getting kids fit and embracing the nation’s troops — were shrewd political choices, ones that have given her allies from coast to coast.

So President Harry S. Truman summoned lawmakers back to act on measures they had previously failed to pass, setting the special session for “what we in Missouri call ‘Turnip Day,’ taken from the old Missouri saying, ‘On the twenty-fifth of July, sow your turnips, wet or dry.’” Truman’s blatantly political ploy in his post-midnight 1948 convention acceptance speech delighted Democrats and provoked more Republican derision than action. But it also set up his successful campaign against a “Do Nothing” Republican Congress. Faced today with similarly resistant Republicans who run the House and can hamstring him in the Senate — plus a clearly unhappy public — President Barack Obama resisted the temptation to bring lawmakers back from their August recess. His style is far more cerebral and a lot less blatantly political than Truman’s. But, like Truman, Obama will basically ask lawmakers next week to “sow your turnips, wet or dry” when he lays out his latest proposals to spur the lagging economy. The contrast between his proposals — and the likely Republican reaction — will help to define the choice Americans will face in November 2012. Obama will be most effective if he resists an overly cautious approach tailored to what he believes Republicans might accept. Instead, he should lay out a broad agenda that includes a form of the long-term debt reduction plan he floated during the debt-ceiling talks and press his message in a clear and consistent way. After all, a GOP convinced it is on the way to making Obama a one-term president seems unlikely to break out of the ideological constraints that have marked its approach since he took office. This week’s memo from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor indicates the Republicans’ approach will continue to reflect the questionable view that the best way to create jobs is to ease the restraints on the private sector through tax cuts and regulatory relief. For example, Cantor cited a proposal to give small businesses a 20 percent tax deduction to enable them to hire more workers. Interestingly, news reports on measures Obama is considering say he would condition such tax relief on actual hiring, which would seem more prudent. Those reports also indicate Obama is considering measures that would go well beyond the GOP’s plans in providing direct government support designed to create jobs for unemployed workers. One is a proposal floated in June by former President Bill Clinton to put unemployed construction workers back to work at retrofitting buildings to make them energy efficient. Others would increase loans for job creating public-private partnerships and maintain current levels of funding for highway construction at a time GOP lawmakers are considering significant cuts. Judging from the National Republican Congressional Committee’s news releases, the GOP will criticize almost any Obama proposal to spend more federal funds as akin to what it calls his “failed, job-destroying” 2009 stimulus plan. Obama’s speech almost certainly will provoke sharply partisan responses, including possible resistance to even such broadly acceptable measures as three pending trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama. But it also gives him another opportunity to shape the debate that will play a big role in determining his political future. Carl P.

The anniversary approaches. Ten years ago. Like yesterday. Twin Towers. Shanksville. The Pentagon. Out of the blue. Catastrophic failure of steel. And our sense of security. So many lost that day. So many fallen since. So universally felt, the entire tragedy – our recollections and emotions – can be communicated in shorthand, still. 9/11. As the date draws near – and with it corresponding remembrances across the country, including in the Wyoming Valley – mere words, more words, simply won’t suffice. This occasion begs for action. Memorialize the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks next Sunday, or in the intervening days, by doing something charitable: perform acts of compassion (publicly or privately), donate material goods or money, volunteer. Promoters of the annual 9/ 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance hope this year to mobilize 1 million Americans to do good deeds as a way of paying tribute to the victims, the survivors and the heroes. In a nation of nearly 312 million residents, that seems about 311 million participants short. Don’t be among the people to ignore the date, going blindly about your usual weekend routine. Instead, prove that you remember. Demonstrate that you care.

Government getting in the way of recession recovery MANY IN the media are saying how unusual it is for our economy to be so sluggish for so long after we have officially emerged from a recession. In a sense, they are right. But, in another sense, they are profoundly wrong. The American economy usually rebounds a lot faster than it is doing today. After a recession passes, consumers usually increase their spending. And when businesses see demand picking up, they usually start hiring workers to produce the additional output required to meet that demand. Some very sharp downturns in the American economy, such as in the early 1920s, were followed quickly by bouncing back to normal levels or beyond. The government did nothing – and it worked. In that sense, this is an unusual recovery in how long it is taking and in how slowly the economy is growing – while the government is doing virtually everything imaginable. Government intervention might look good to the media but its actual track record – both today and in the 1930s – is far worse than the track record of letting the economy recover on its own. COMMENTARY THOMAS SOWELL Americans today are alarmed that unemployment has stayed around 9 percent for so long. But such unemployment rates have been common for years in Western European welfare states that have followed policies similar to policies being followed by the Obama administration. Those European welfare states have not only used the taxpayers’ money to hand out “free” benefits to particular groups, they also have mandated that employers do the same. Faced with higher labor costs, employers have hired less labor. The vast uncertainties created by “ObamaCare” create a special problem. If employers knew that “ObamaCare” would add $1,000 to their costs of hiring an employee, then they could simply reduce the salaries they offer by $1,000 and start hiring. But, since it will take years to create all the regulations required to carry out “ObamaCare,” employers today don’t know whether the “ObamaCare” costs Government intervention might look good to the media but its actual track record – both today and in the 1930s – is far worse than the track record of letting the economy recover on its own. that will hit them down the road will be $500 per employee or $5,000 per employee. Even businesses that have record amounts of cash on hand are reluctant to gamble it by expanding their hiring under these conditions. Many businesses work their existing employees overtime or hire temporary workers, rather than get stuck with unknown and unknowable costs for expanding their permanent workforce. As unusual as 9 percent unemployment rates might seem to the current generation of Americans, unemployment rates stayed in double digits for months and years on end during the 1930s. Franklin D. Roosevelt’s administration followed policies very similar to those of the Obama administration. He also got away with it politically by blaming his predecessor.

His website is Poll finds Muslims Congress must commit to reducing unemployment COMMENTARY still happy in U.S. OTHER OPINION: PEW SURVEY A FTER THE terrorist attacks of 9/11, it was said that the United States would never be the same. That has proved true in ways good and bad, and among the wrongheaded impulses was the readiness by some to hold all Muslims responsible for actions of a few. If some of the sharpest political rantings are to be believed, the imposition of sharia law in America is likely and all Muslims must be suspected of wanting to do the country harm. Aside from the obvious repudiation of this country’s values of fair play, how do such attitudes measure against reality, as measured by scientific polling? What do American Muslims feel about themselves and their country? The Pew Research Center for the People & the Press has conducted a poll of American Muslims to find out the answers, a follow-up to a survey taken in 2007. The pollsters found no indication of increased alienation or anger among American Muslims in response to concerns about home-grown Islamic terrorists, no evidence of rising support for Islamic extremism. Just 1 percent say that suicide bombing and other forms of violence against civilian targets are often justified to defend Islam, while 81percent say that such violence against civilians is never justified. The respondents did report being the subjects of suspicion – 52 percent say that government anti-terrorism policies single out Muslims for increased surveillance and monitoring. Despite this, 82 percent report being satisfied with their lives and 79 percent rate their communities very positively as places to live. The survey suggests a population that is mostly middle class and mainstream, religious but not dogmatic. Despite a few errant cases involving Muslims, the Pew survey suggests that we fear not: The American melting pot continues to work its magic. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette THIS LABOR Day is different. The old truths about a dynamic labor market in which the young and unemployed could quickly find jobs have given way to a grim new reality – weak job growth and high levels of prolonged unemployment. This shift threatens to transform far too many of America’s once productive workers into permanently unemployed or unemployable people. Nearly one-third of the nation’s 14 million unemployed workers have been jobless for a year or more, and an additional 8.4 million are working part-time because their hours have been reduced or they simply can’t find full-time jobs. Equally troublesome is that only 58 percent of those over age 16 are working, the lowest percent since 1983. The employment situation is worse for young people, older workers, black and Hispanic workers and those with no more than a high school education. The unemployment rate has hovered around 9 percent or more since April 2009, and the shock value has worn. But if we allow idle workers and persistently high unemployment to become the new normal, we risk the deterioration of communities as well as the nation’s position as a global economic force. Research shows persistently high unemployment has negative long-term social and economic consequences for individuals and families. The longer people are unemployed, the less employable they become because their skills decline and they lose connections to networks that might help them find jobs. College graduates who enter the workforce EVELYN GANZGLASS 265,000 jobs, according to the Department of Labor. The federal government can help save more jobs by providing incentives to states to encourage more of them to enact work sharing programs. Another immediate job creation strategy is subsidizing jobs to provide opportunity for youth and long-term unemployed workers, a strategy that has been shown to benefit workers and employers. Last year, the government ended a successful, two-year subsidized jobs program that provided employment for about 250,000 people. The program put people to work while jobs were scarce, and it also helped employers boost productivity. A subsidized jobs program could be funded outright, or it could replace the $1 billion federal Work Opportunity Tax Credit program, which has had little effect on hiring and retaining disadvantaged workers. Federal lawmakers are still in their districts this Labor Day for the August recess. Some of them will issue public remarks celebrating the nation’s workers. But the remarks will be hollow if they fail to return to Washington and take action to make sure the nation invests adequate resources to put people back to work and restore well-being to families and communities and economic health to the nation. High unemployment doesn’t have to be and shouldn’t be the new normal. during a recession have lower lifetime earnings than those who began working when jobs were plentiful. Their entire careers and financial livelihoods are negatively affected by their early labor market experience. Older unemployed workers often leave the labor market altogether, which reduces their retirement incomes. Our more than two-year-old economic recovery is fragile in part because far too many Americans lack jobs. But it doesn’t have to remain this way. There are actions the nation can take to address high unemployment in the short- and long-term. But it requires that federal lawmakers do more than simply acknowledge we have a jobs crisis. They must also begin addressing this problem with the same level of urgency that they devoted to the debt ceiling. Two strategies they could implement are work sharing and subsidized jobs. Work sharing is a federal-state unemployment insurance program that allows companies faced with reduced demand to cut all employees’ hours instead of laying off some workers.

They are a baseball team. Not yet very good, mind you, but it matters not. When you live in a town with a great team, you go to see them win. When you live in a town with a team that is passing rapidly through mediocrity on its way to contention – the Nats have an amazing crop of upcoming young players – you go for the moments. I go to see Ryan Zimmerman charge a slowly hit grounder down the third-base line. This happens roughly once a game. Zim comes flying in, picks up the ball barehanded and throws it across his body to first base, perpendicular to the direction in which he’s running. Except that this cannot be done. You could never get enough (velocity) on the throw to get the out at first. So Zimmerman dives forward, leaving his feet and hovering there for an instant, his body parallel to the ground in order to get more arm extension and thus more on the throw, which by now is nearly underhanded, his fingers almost scraping the ground. Batter out. Try this yourself. Aim for a barn door. You will miss. And also dislocate your shoulder. Another attraction is rookie second baseman Danny Espinosa. He has what in baseball parlance is known as range. A hard shot is hit to the hole between first and second, and Espy ranges to his left to snag it. Three weeks ago, one shot was hit so hard and so deep that he had to dive onto the outfield grass to reach it, sliding on his side in the general direction of the right-field foul pole. Nice grab, but unless you can get the ball to first, it’s just for show. Espy starts to get up. But there is no time for standing. So, from his knees, while still sliding on the grass out toward the stands, he forces himself into a counter-clockwise 180degree spin to throw back toward first base – except that he actually begins his throw mid-turn, while facing the outfield, thereby gaining velocity from the centrifugal force (and probably the rota- MAIL BAG U M SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2011 PAGE 3E ANOTHER VIEW A photograph by Aimee Dilger and words by Mark E. Jones COMMENTARY CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER tion of the Earth, although this remains unverified). It’s like throwing on your knees from a spinning merry-goround that is itself moving laterally in a landslide. Try that. Batter out. The piece de resistance, however, is what center fielder Rick Ankiel pulled off last Sunday. It’s the bottom of the ninth, one out. The Reds have just tied the game with a solo homer. They need one more run to win. Batter crushes the ball to rightcenter field. If it clears the wall, game over. But it doesn’t. It bounces off the wall, eluding our right fielder. Ankiel, who had dashed over from center, charges after the ball, picks it up barehanded and, in full running stride, fires it to third, to which the batter is headed and from which he is very likely to later score and win the game (there being only one out). Now, when mortals throw a ball, they give it arc to gain distance. That’s how artillery works. Ankiel is better than artillery. He releases the ball at the top of his throwing motion, the ball rocketing out as if tracing a clothesline. It bounces five feet from third base, perfectly on line, arriving a millisecond before the batter and maybe 20 inches above the bag. Quick tag. Batter out. Game saved. (Blown five innings later. But remember, it’s the Nats.) Said Nats broadcaster and former major leaguer F.P. Santangelo: “That might be the best throw I’ve ever seen.” Me too, except that I didn’t see it personally, as it were. Only saw it on TV. They were playing in Cincinnati. I might be a fan, but I’m not a lunatic. I don’t travel with the team. Yet. Yes, I know that the world is going to pieces, and that the prowess of three gifted players doesn’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. But I remind you that FDR wanted baseball to continue during World War II. I make no claim that elegance and grace on any field will fend off the Apocalypse. But if it comes in summer, I’ll be at Nats Park, Section 128, hard by the Dippin’ Dots.

Nothing typically happens in this village, except for the sound of occasional freight trains roaring through the middle of town. But on Aug. 21, at the Ramada Inn in Wilkes-Barre, three men, all born and raised in this town, were enshrined in the Luzerne County Sports Hall of Fame: Frank Galicki, Pat “Tiger” Denoy and the late Jake Handzelek. In addition to this welldeserved honor, two of these men previously had been named to the sports halls of fame for their respective colleges – Galicki for Wilkes University and Handzelek for Juniata College. For this town – whose only claim to fame is that it took its name from Frances Slocum, the young girl abducted by the Indians in 1778 at the Battle of Wyoming and who was given the name Mocanaqua by her captors – this indeed is a welldeserved honor. These men, who achieved exceptional success in the sports field, also were active in civic and church affairs and should by recognized as role models by the youth of our area high school athletic programs. Congratulations to Frank and Tiger, and to Jake; may he rest in eternal peace.

But what happens if they tilt so far rightward that they wind up ceding the center? The current crop of candidates is risking that result. President Barack Obama might be highly vulnerable in 2012, but if Rick Perry and his rivals don’t clamp down on the crazy talk, they might well blow it. Sensible Republicans realize this all too well. Mark McKinnon, an ex-George W. Bush strategist, spoke for many the other day when he contended that Perry and company “seem intent on putting an increasingly ideologically conservative and intolerant face on the party. They are pulling the primary contest so far right that the party will be far less attractive to the independent voters needed to win the general election.” Independents backed Obama by 8 percentage points in 2008, but they’re currently sour on the president; in the latest Gallup poll, only 36 percent gave him a thumbs-up on job performance. It would appear that these centrist voters are ripe for the taking. MAIL BAG DICK POLMAN But this is no way to win them over: • Declaring that evolution is “just a theory that’s out there.” • Insisting that the scientific consensus on climate change is “all one contrived phony mess that is falling apart under its own weight.” • Decreeing that revenue increases of any kind are unacceptable under any and all circumstances, and signing a pledge to that effect. • Promising to fill all key Cabinet and executive jobs with foes of abortion, and signing a pledge to that effect. • Asserting that “it’s time for us to just hand (America) over to God and say, ‘God, you’re going to have to fix this.’” • Announcing in a book that Social Security and Medicare are unconstitutional and should be scrapped. • Contending that gay Americans are “part of Satan.” • Dissing the Bush-appointed Federal Reserve chairman as “treasonous.” • Insinuating (yet again) that Obama is insufficiently American and insufficiently in love with America. Reagan didn’t equate gay people with Satan, or talk about them much at all; two years earlier, he had even opposed an antigay California referendum. Reagan didn’t sign any pledges about abortion; he rarely even mentioned abortion. Reagan didn’t sign any pledges never to hike taxes; indeed, as governor, he had repeatedly raised taxes. Reagan didn’t question Carter’s patriotism. Reagan didn’t declare that he wanted to do away with Social Security and Medicare. Quite the contrary, he publicly (and falsely) denied during the campaign that he had ever opposed the concept of Medicare. By contrast, the new Republican frontrunner is openly adamant about whacking those federal safety nets out of existence. No wonder McKinnon and many of his party establishment friends are so nervous; it would be fascinating to watch Perry, during the autumn ’12 campaign, tout his stance on Social Security and Medicare to audiences in senior-heavy swing states such as Florida and Pennsylvania. I also wonder whether his faith talk, his public willingness to name God as his Mr. Fix-It, would go down well in swing suburban enclaves – say, Bucks County, where independents typically prefer their fixers composed of bodily flesh.

Chris Christie continues to tantalize Republicans, but rest assured that, somewhere in his record, he has said nice things about science. Strike one. He already has appointed a Muslim American judge and assailed the Islamophobic protests as “crap.” Strike two. See the problem? The purity police, who long ago excommunicated Romney as a closet moderate, will abide no nuance in the Republican field. If they ultimately allow a beleaguered Obama to run free on center ground, they’ll have only themselves to blame. Dick Polman is a columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Bill Dress Wilkes-Barre Paranormal group ‘science’ disputed A recently published article titled “Paranormal investigators take on Swetland Homestead” features members of the local group NEPA Paranormal investigating the Swetland Homestead in Wyoming. Although NEPA Paranormal claims that its work is scientific, its work is anything but scientific. NEPA Paranormal, according to its website’s home page, takes “a scientific approach to the paranormal,” but its “About Us” page notes that the members “do believe the paranormal exists, and want some answers.” Right from the start, NEPA Paranormal members are not acting scientifically; they are starting with an unsubstantiated belief that the paranormal exists when those who are properly scientific should start from a neutral position of non-belief. NEPA Paranormal’s website also notes the use of “professional equipment” such as activity instead of saying “I don’t know” or looking for naturalistic explanations.

What’s noteworthy is that the more he talks, the higher he climbs in the party rankings. Gallup said last week that he had vaulted past Mitt Romney into first place as the preferred nominee, and that speaks volumes about the heavily rightward tilt of the post-Reagan Republican electorate. Reagan himself would be dismissed these days as way too moderate; he’d be down in the polls with Jon Huntsman, whose sane rebuttals of Perry have earned him 1 percent support. In fact, let’s talk about Reagan. Many conservatives today scoff at the notion that the current candidates are too extreme to beat Obama. They point out that Reagan was widely reviled in 1980 as too conservative and therefore unelectable. Many in the media made that case. So did moderate Republican John Anderson, who ran that autumn as an independent; as he argued in March of that year, “I am afraid that the nomination of Mr. Reagan will only ensure the re-election of (Jimmy) Carter and further ensure the continuing economic disaster that we have suffered now for three years.” But here’s the flaw in the current conservative argument: Reagan in 1980 did not talk like an extremist, in the mold of Perry or Michele Bachmann. He had no interest in doubling down on crazy. CMYK ➛ THE TIMES LEADER MAIL BAG I have been escorted by police out of Wilkes-Barre Township meetings at the urging of council President Mary Yuknavich and attorney Bruce Phillips, the solicitor. I am contacting the American Civil Liberties Union and presenting it with the minutes of the meetings and cassette recordings to investigate whether it was illegal to escort me out and deny others adequate time to speak. If my rights have been violated, I will sue the township. I’m asking the ACLU to be present at the meetings. Joseph Naperkowski Wilkes-Barre River St. meeting quite frustrating R arely have I witnessed a more disappointing display of incompetence by a public bureaucracy than the recent public meeting about the proposed improvements to the River Street corridor. This project is on people’s minds because River Street essentially separates downtown Wilkes-Barre from the entire length of the new River Common. At the Darte Center at Wilkes University, I had expected that the event would take place in the theater area, with, perhaps, a formal presentation including some background on the project, assumptions, objectives, costs and maybe even a PowerPoint display. I was surprised to find 10 or so maps and renderings displayed around the lobby. Alas, there was no presentation. I was told if I had any questions (which, by now, I did), I could ask one of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation representatives. The PennDOT representatives had nothing to identify themselves. By now the room was getting crowded, so I decided to hang at the edge of some of the groups to see if I could learn anything.

This project will do nothing to make parking for events on the River Common more accessible, nor improve access for pedestrians or bikers. This project will further confuse visitors to the area by exacerbating the already chaotic network of one-way streets and turning lanes in downtown Wilkes-Barre. As near as I can tell, the principal objective of this project is to slow down things. I’m no traffic engineer, but even I know that if you make major alterations to traffic patterns on what might be the most used route into the downtown, things are going to be even more screwed up. As a result, more people will simply avoid coming downtown. On the way out, I grabbed a survey for people who had come to the meeting. Looking at it casually before I descended the stairs, I noticed that one of the questions was this: “Did you attend the presentation?” The options were “yes” and “no.” I wrote in “other” and “There wasn’t one.” But the icing on the cake was question seven: “Where do you live?” The options were Bangor Borough, East Bangor Borough, Martins Creek, Rosetto, Pen Argyl and Other. I picked “Other.” It seems the people from the Department of Transportation didn’t even know what county they were in! Frank Burnside Jr. Harveys Lake Reader cites lack of judicial monitor I respectfully take exception to The Times Leader’s editorial “Real justice lacking in juvenile system” (Aug. 12). I have been an unwilling participant in, and active critic of, the Pennsylvania Judicial System for more than 30 years. I believe that this is not a juvenile justice issue at all. I believe this is a judicial oversight issue that just happened to raise its ugly head in juvenile court. Ex-judge Michael Toole was not arrested for juvenile court misconduct, yet he is now in federal prison. It is not the job of the FBI to police and control judges in this state. The FBI only comes into play when the state fails to police its own. And fail it did. Not only did the Pennsylvania Judicial Conduct Board table a detailed complaint about former Luzerne County judges Michael Conahan and Mark Ciavarella’s illegal juvenile court activities, but according to published reports, this same board ignored almost 40 other complaints on these two future felons. I believe the JCB has been used by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania as a political tool. The Supreme Court’s control of the JCB allows the “powers that be” to demand loyalty and support or face the wrath of the board – while keeping the court at arm’s length all the while. I believe that in order for real judicial reform to take place we need to investigate the JCB via a federal grand jury. If the Supreme Court was acting in the best interest of the public, it would be demanding such an investigation. It appears the system did not fail, but rather the system “permitted” at least some, if not most, of this illegal activity by these judges to go unchallenged. Not only do we need to know why the JCB did not fulfill its mandate as required by its own rules, but also how extensive its failures have been in the past. Larry Hohol DeLand, Fla. Council candidate states his merits I am sorry that Kathy Dobash felt that she received undo criticism from me regarding her Luzerne County office visits. I was noting only that all people in the county – not only those elected to run in November for county council – should be afforded the same privilege. The transition process can be understood by attending the committee’s meetings, and the future process of county government can be seen in the charter. I appreciate Dobash’s critique of my statements regarding county actions, past and present; however, I would ask you to critique my résumé and let me know if I have some qualifications to make statements based on my experiences and knowledge. Thank you for recognizing me as a teacher: 15 years. I also was a coach of high school, college and semiprofessional men, many of whom until today maintain a close relationship with me. I am also a father of two, and grandfather of two boys. I am a U.S. Navy veteran. I was the mayor of Swoyersville for four years. I was a Luzerne County commissioner for four years (having balanced the budget each of those years and left office with a $500,000 surplus). I was the manager of an insurance office for five years. I was the director of the county assessment office for 9½ years. I was a pharmacy rep for five years, until I retired. I believe my well-rounded experiences qualify me, to a degree, to offer an opinion regarding government knowledge and learning. If you add up my years in government service, they total 32½ years. I include teaching in that amount, because I feel I served the public in that capacity. I look forward to your help, letting me know where I qualify to be called ignorant or critical of someone seeking knowledge. I will say without reservation that 17 years as mayor, commissioner and assessment director provides me with a little more knowledge of government than the three months you have spent researching. I commend your efforts. Keep up the good work. However, all citizens should attend and be involved in government, not only when it affects them, but every day. Oh, by the way, I taught socials studies in high school, which included civics. I look forward to your help in erasing any biases you feel I have. Edward A. Brominski Candidate Luzerne County Council Swoyersville Give Congress its share of woe I f the federal government goes after “entitlement programs,” a lot of Americans will be affected: senior citizens, veterans, the disabled, those living in poverty and the younger generation of Americans (when they reach their “golden years” and hopefully not their “stolen years”). Congress is going after the middle class and the “havenots” to eliminate Social Security and Medicare, and favoring the rich with tax breaks. Is this a way to reduce the deficit? Why are they starting at the bottom? Let’s start at the top. The bottom of the barrel is empty. Nearly 54 million Americans are collecting Social Security and congressional members apparently cannot give them a cost of living adjustment, while they give themselves $4,000 to $5,000 raises. About 48 million people receive food stamps. They’re in low-paying jobs or can’t find jobs. Why? There were 41,000 companies that moved their work overseas, yet we give them billions of dollars to set up their businesses. Where is the job creation that candidates promised, if elected? There are 38 million American children who go to bed hungry. How many of our elected representatives in Washington, D.C., do the same? Two-thirds of U.S. corporations haven’t paid their taxes from 1997 to 2009. They sure can afford to pay; this would reduce the deficit. The price of gasoline is out of control, and there are companies making billions of dollars in profits. Why? Greed. Congress, where are you? You are the lawmakers. You better do something, because in 2012, changes will be made. It seems the people are being ruled by a 535-person monarchy in Washington that enjoys a Cadillac lifestyle. If people, especially members of the younger generation, don’t get involved, then you deserve the government you get. Wake up! Wake up! Americans, you worked too hard to make this a great nation. Don’t let the 535 in Washington destroy it! Charles Urban Kingston CMYK PAGE 6E ➛ SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2011 FIRST LADY Continued from Page 1E cord and plan,” said Sharon Day, cochair of the Republican National Committee. “Unfortunately, even Mrs. Obama can’t defend the horrible record this president has on gettingtheeconomybackontrack,putting Americans back to work and endingtheout-of-controlspending.” But strategists such as Mary Matalin, who has worked for Republicans including President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, predicted that the 47-yearoldfirstladywillbeinthetrenches: raising money, pumping up voter turnout, showering local media with interviews, reinforcing her husband’s campaign themes and making a splash when Democrats hold their national convention a year from now in Charlotte, N.C. “Mrs. Obama will be critical to shoring up the president’s liberal base,”Matalinsaid.“Shespeakstheir language and connects with them, which they need to punch up turnout. “She will be a solid reinforcer of thegeneralmessageandevokegreat coverage in all local markets. She is an articulate and eloquent presence. She is actually better than the president in some aspects.” The first lady has acknowledged her distaste for some aspects of the 2008 campaign, in which there were a few gaffes, notably when she said that for the first time in her adult life, she felt proud of her country — a remark that led opponents to question her patriotism. That was then. “My motto is: Do no harm,” she told U.S. reporters during a June trip she took in Africa when asked about the upcoming campaign. When asked if she was the president’s “secret weapon,” she saidno,butnotedthatwhenshewill V I E THE FIRST LADY’S CAUSES Michelle Obama’s two big issues — child obesity and military families — are carefully chosen, appealing and noncontroversial. Indeed, first ladies must pick their causes strategically, said Kathleen Hall Jamieson, who directs the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania. Their issues must help the president but not make it appear the first lady is usurping his power and “as a result, exercising unelected power,” Jamieson said. A notable flop: Hillary Clinton’s failure on a health care overhaul early in the Clinton presidency. “When the first lady is perceived as a vulnerability, the consultants move her off the stage very quickly,” added Jamieson, author of “The Obama Victory,” a book on the ’08 campaign. Jamieson said that Michelle Obama’s crusade against childhood obesity showed compassion and that her support for military families helped blunt the traditional argument that Democrats are weak on defense. Presidential historian Richard Norton Smith, a scholar in residence at George Mason University, noted that support for military families has tended to be the purview of the Republican Party. “I don’t question for a moment Mrs. Obama’s sincerity, but you can be shrewd and sincere at the same time,” he said. be out on the stump, “it’ll be rigorous.” With audiences at fundraisers, she shares what’s ahead. “It’s going to be long and it’s going to be hard,” she said in Park City, Utah in July, “because there’s nothing easy about what Barack Obama is trying to do.” Presidential historian Richard Norton Smith said Mrs. Obama is “tremendously valuable as a political asset” and compared her to Laura Bush, who likewise enjoyed higher public regard than Republican President George W. Bush. Michelle Obama had a favorability rating of 70 percent — higher than her husband’s 54 percent — in a national poll conducted for The Associated Press over five days ending Aug. 22. The same poll had big red flags for the White House: Seventy-five percent of respondents said things in the country were headed in the wrong direction; only 21 percent said “the right direction.” And only 46 percent approved of the way President Obama is handling his job. In her speeches at fundraisers, the first lady steers clear of major controversies. At a July luncheon in Aspen, Colo., hosted there by Chicagoans Jim and Paula Crown, Michelle Obama avoided the thenburning issue of whether to raise the debt ceiling. According to a press pool report, attendee Laura Lauder was surprised by the omission, but added: “She doesn’t want to be partisan, I suppose.” Still, the first lady’s fundraising speeches tout her husband’s achievements, from nurturing an economy “on the brink of collapse” to finding Osama bin Laden to nominating two women to the Supreme Court. She praises the president’s intellect, work ethic and virtues as a husband and father. “Are you in?” she asked supporters at the Aspen event. “Because I certainly am.” Katie McCormick Lelyveld, a Chicagoan who worked for Michelle Obama in the 2008 campaign and the White House, said thefirstladyconnectswithaverage people. “In 2008 in Iowa, we referred to her as ’the closer,’ “ Lelyveld said. “She could go into a room and really relate to people and share her perspective as the person who knew her husband best as a partner, a decision-maker, a husband and a father. “I imagine her role will be very similar in the next go-around.” W S THE TIMES LEADER the private sector. At the same time, the officials responsible for monitoring contractor performance have been overwhelmed by increasing reliance on private companies. “We are far more reliant on contractors than we ever were,” said commission member Charles Tiefer, a professor of government contracting at the University of Baltimore Law School. “We always bought munitions from them. But we didn’t used to buy much in the way of services from them.” The commission cited numerousexamplesofwaste,includinga $360 million U.S.-financed agricultural development program in Afghanistan. The effort began as a $60 million project in 2009 to distribute vouchers for wheat seed and fertilizer in drought-stricken areas of northern Afghanistan. The program expanded into the south and east. Soon the U.S. was spending a $1 million a day on the program,creatinganenvironment ripe for waste and abuse, the commission said. The Afghan insurgency’s second largest funding source after the illegal drug trade is the diversion of money from U.S.-backed construction projects and transportation contracts, according to the commission. But the report doesnotsayhowmuchmoneyhas been funneled to the insurgency. The Associated Press reported this month that U.S. military authorities in Kabul believe $360 million has ended up in the hands of the Taliban, criminals and power brokers with ties to both. The military said only a small percentage of the $360 million has been garnered by the Taliban and insurgent groups. Most of the money was lost to profiteering, bribery and extortion by criminals and power brokers. SPENDING Continued from Page 1E ment is a priority for many. Other proposals would cost little or simply require money to be shifted from one account to another, the panel said. “If these recommendations are not implemented, there ought to be a Hall of Shame,” said Michael Thibault, co-chairman of the commission. “There’s an opportunity at hand.” The commission’s 15 recommendationsincludecreatinganinspector general to monitor war zone contracting and operations, appointing a senior government official to improve planning and coordination among federal agencies, reducing the use of private security companies, and carefully monitoring contractor performance. Massachusetts Rep. John Tierney, the top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform national security subcommittee, said Wednesday that the commission’s findings are “alarming.” Tierney said he plans to introduce legislation next week to create the inspector general’s post. The commission’s report said contracting waste in Afghanistan and Iraq could grow as U.S. support for reconstruction projects and programs wanes. That would leave the countries to bear the long-term costs of sustaining the schools, medical clinics, barracks, roads and power plants already built with American money. Overall, the commission said spending on contracts and grants to support U.S. operations is expected to exceed $206 billion by the end of the 2011 budget year.

In the final round, Tommy’s opponent is estranged brother Brendan (Joel Edgerton). “WhenIfirstreadthescriptitwasaltogetherdifferent,”Hardy says. “Tommy had long hair, and he went swimming every morning with rocks in a rucksack. … I thought, ‘You need Chuck Norris for this. There’s no way that I’m going to be able to transform into this guy.’ ” See HARDY, Page 4F “Thankstoeveryonewhohasever said I wouldn’t make it or made fun of me, because you only made me stronger.” It’s a simple saying Sugarloaf native Gino Barletta included under his photo in his Wyoming Seminary yearbook, a quote that came from then-teen pop star JoJo, whohititbigwith her song “Leave (Get Out)” in 2004. Now it means much more to Gino Barletta Barletta, 23, who has become a personal friend to JoJo, now 21, and co-wrote “Disaster,” the first single off her new album “Jumping Trains” and the newest material from her in almost five years. “It’s overwhelming, of course,” Barletta, a singer-songwriter, said of his newfound success. “I’m still letting it all sink in.” Barletta had an interest in the arts from a young age, when he performed in community and school theater and was part of the Madrigal Singers of Wyoming Seminary. He moved to Los Angeles in 2007 after a year of school at Carnegie-Mellon in Pittsburgh. He knew he was destined to be in L.A. and wanted to get there as quickly as possible. “I didn’t know where I was going to live; I didn’t know what I was doing; I didn’t know anything about the industry,” he said. “I felt like I was walking around in the dark for the first year or two.” It wasn’t until his friend Denise Hudson, with whom he performed back home, moved to L.A. that things started to change. Hudson worked with the likes of Mary J. Blige and the “American Idol” tour. “Shewaskindenoughtoopenup hernetworktomeandgetmestarted,” Barletta said. “Seeing her hustle made me want to become successful even more.” Hudson also toured with JoJo, whom she introduced to Barletta. Barletta, who only began to write songs once he moved to L.A., had pieces of “Disaster” put together before meeting JoJo, and when Hudson heard them she knew JoJo had to have a listen too. “When we hung out for the first time I felt like I was talking to myself,” Barletta said. “Our lives really mirror each other’s, from the way we grew up, our family life, all the stuff we went through trying to be an artist.” “Disaster”tellsofacrumblingrelationship, a topic over which Barletta and JoJo connected. “L.A.’s a very overwhelming place, and it’s easy to get into relationships simply because you feel alone.

Clooney’s stab at singing the film’s signature song still remains in the vaults, but an expanded version of the soundtrack — now in stores — packs 14 extra tracks, including 12 previously unreleased cuts from music producer T Bone Burnett’s “O Brother” sessions. The two-CD set, which also includes the 19 tunes from the original soundtrack, helps celebrate the 10th anniversary of the “O Brother” triumph at the 2001 Grammys, where it was picked as album of the year. The film’s $45 million haul at the domestic box-office was at the time the biggest success yet for filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen, but it was a pittance compared with Hollywood blockbusters. The album, though, was a runaway hit, selling 9 million copies, ranking as one of the 10 top-selling soundtracks ever and inspiring renewed interest in long-neglected rootsy music that continues today. As the studio engineer tells Clooney’s gang in the film, “People can’t seem to get enough” of that old-timey stuff. “That type of music had been around my whole life. There was a period of time in the late 1950s and early ‘60s where it was actually popular music, and I knew there hadn’t been a light shone on it for some number of years,” Burnett said. “We knew we were getting ready to shine a very bright light on it with a George Clooney moAP PHOTO vie and a George Clooney video, for that matter. I thought there Tim Blake Nelson, George Clooney and John Turturro are shown in a scene from ’O Brother, Where See O BROTHER, Page 4F Art Thou?’ An expanded version of the movie’s soundtrack will be released Tuesday, packing 13 previously unreleased tracks along with four other cuts.

DEAR ABBY ADVICE Christian man isn’t right choice for atheist Dear Abby: I have been seeing “Randy” for more than a year. We get along great. He makes me laugh and I can envision us sharing the rest of our lives together. I am an atheist and Randy is a Christian. I don’t mind his family’s views, and I have no problem with religion as long as it isn’t being forced on me. However, thinking about a future with Randy, I wouldn’t want his family’s religious views forced on my children, either. I want them to make their own choices when they’re old enough to understand. Randy wants an “ideal Christian family,” where he raises his children on his terms and with his religious views. I don’t feel children should be forced into something from birth.

We both had similar experiences with something like that.” “Once we connected over that, the song completed itself.” on Monday. Barletta has worked with other artistsandproducers,includingTaboo of the Black Eyed Peas, the band Girlicious and three-time Grammy-winning producer Ron “Neff-U” Feemster. He’s now in the studio with producer Mario Marchetti who not only worked on “Disaster” but is helping Barletta with his own music project. Barletta may work in cooperation with other artists, through ly with a string of well-reviewed stage and TV roles, including “The Take” and “Wuthering Heights,” both of which starred his fiancée, Charlotte Riley. (Hardy has a 3-yearold son, Louis, with his former girlfriend, director Rachael Speed). Nabbing the title role in “Bronson” was a turning point. The film, which received limited distribution in the United States, delved deep into the story of Charles Bronson, a real-life criminal so dangerous he’s spent most of his adult life in solitary confinement. “I’ve been working for about 12 years as an actor,” Hardy told last year. “I’m not new to it. ‘Bronson’ was sort of the last desperate stand in many ways. I’ve always wanted to get onto the American stage. It’s a bigger stage. You get more exposure. It’s great. You want to play as big as you can in your field. It’s like football. Acting is a contact sport for me. The American field is the place that I want to play on.” songwriting and artist development, but he’s also working on a career of his own. He calls his musical stylings pop rock, similar to Gavin Degraw and Third Eye Blind, with some added soul. Though the sound is important, Barletta is focusing on much more. “I’m aiming to bring back what I feelislackinginthemusicindustry, which is a story. I want to be a timeless storyteller, singer-songwriter. I want people listening to my music now and 50 years from now.” He’s hoping to have his own material released within the next year. For now he’s just glad, finally, to have the ball rolling. “Agoodwaytogetintotheindustry is to do something behind the scenes. When people see you’re powerful enough to create what’s being sold as the product that goes through the singers, the actors, the dancers, then you gain credibility.” “Having ‘Disaster’ be such an important single for JoJo is a defining momentformeasawriter.Yougrow up listening to these people, buying thealbumsandreadingthealbuminserts,andnowI’mgoing to be one of those names on the insert and I get to hear her sing these lyrics that we created together.” L K IN G F O R m P rem iu Q U A L IT Y C O AL?

The double album contains two previously unreleased tracks by the late John Hartford, a banjo player and music folklorist who wrote “Gentle on My Mind.” Burnett recalls that Hartford recorded 30 or 40 songs in a single day as they were working on the “O Brother” soundtrack. Inspired by Homer’s “The Odyssey,” the film follows three Depression-era escaped convicts (Clooney, John Turturro and Tim Blake Nelson) as they encounter seductive sirens, run afoul of a modern Cyclops (John Goodman) and inadvertently record a hit song with the traditional tune “I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow.” The film makes its debut on Blu-ray disc Sept. 13, with extras that include the “Man of Constant Sorrow” music video. Clooney, nephew of singer Rosemary Clooney, recorded a version that “sounded great ... he does have those genes, and he is Irish,” Burnett said. “If George wanted to, he could be a singer.” FREE DOCUMENT SHREDDING Friday September 23rd & Saturday September 24th • Businesses and residents welcome • Free shredding up to 20 boxes • HIPAA & FACTA compliant Hours: 8:00 am to 2:30 pm To avoid delays, Call for an appointment A Member of the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) 829-2206 • 877-586-8393 495 Stanton St., Wilkes-Barre • FIND US ON FACEBOOK OR FOLLOW US ON TWITTER SHARK NIGHT (XD) (PG-13) 12:40PM, 3:00PM, 5:20PM, 7:40PM, 10:00PM 30 MINUTES OR LESS (DIGITAL) (R) 8:10PM, 10:25PM APOLLO 18 (DIGITAL) (PG-13) 12:45PM, 2:55PM, 5:05PM, 7:45PM, 10:10PM BAD TEACHER (DIGITAL) (R) 8:45PM CARS 2 (DIGITAL) (G) 12:10PM, 2:50PM, 5:30PM COLOMBIANA (Digital) (PG-13) (R) 12:20PM, 1:30PM, 3:20PM, 4:35PM, 6:05PM, 7:25PM, 10:05PM CONAN THE BARBARIAN (Digital) (R) 7:15PM, 10:05PM COWBOYS & ALIENS (DIGITAL) (PG-13) 12:25PM, 3:30PM, 6:45PM, 9:30PM CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE (DIGITAL) (PG-13) 6:50PM, 9:40PM DEBT, THE (DIGITAL) (R) 12:30PM, 3:40PM, 6:55PM, 9:55PM DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK (DIGITAL) (R) 12:00PM, 2:30PM, 5:00PM, 7:30PM, 10:00PM FINAL DESTINATION 5 (3D) (R) 12:50PM, 3:10PM, 5:55PM, 8:30PM FRIGHT NIGHT (2011) (3D) (R) 1:30PM, 4:55PM, 7:35PM, 10:15PM HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, PART 2 (3D) (PG-13) 12:25PM, 3:50PM HELP, THE (DIGITAL) (PG-13) 12:15PM, 3:45PM, 7:10PM, 10:30PM ONE DAY (Digital) (PG-13) 2:05PM, 4:40PM, 7:20PM, 9:50PM OUR IDIOT BROTHER (DIGITAL) (R) 1:10PM, 3:25PM, 5:50PM, 8:05PM, 10:20PM RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES (DIGITAL) (PG-13) 12:05PM, 2:35PM, 5:15PM, 7:55PM, 10:35PM SHARK NIGHT (DIGITAL) (PG-13) SVC., PC Nick Telincho Therapist Expertise in Panic Attack Depression, Anxiety, OCD, Bipolar, PTSD, ADHD Expertise in Family/ Marital/Couple/Grief/ Phase of Life Counseling Anger Management Childhood Abuse Drug/Alcohol/Smoking Cessation Hypnotherapy Accepting Medical Assistance, Medicare, BC/BS, Geisinger & most insurances BLOOMSBURG 784-5663 HAZLETON 454-2545 DANVILLE 275-0390 NEED A NEW ROOF?

No extra advertising, no mention of any connection to the movie.” Burnett said a lot more music eventually might be released from the “O Brother” sessions. That might potentially include Clooney’s take on “Man of Constant Sorrow,” which Burnett did not go looking for as he put together the expanded soundtrack. “I don’t know why we didn’t think of that,” Burnett said.

But Clooney only had a brief time to prepare for his studio session. Burnett said that for the film to work, the song had to sound timeless, the sort of tune that could sweep the airwaves and become the salvation for Clooney and his “Soggy Bottom Boys.” The filmmakers went with a version sung by country and bluegrass guitarist Dan Tyminski, one of the “O Brother” session musicians and a long-time member of Alison Krauss’ band Union Station. Tyminski’s “Man of Constant Sorrow,” which also won a Grammy, has become a standard at Krauss’ shows, and the song gave him such a career boost that he stepped out from sideman duties to record two solo albums.

After he was expelled from the London acting school Drama Centre, Hardy set his sights on a professional career. Very quickly, he landed a pair of meaty roles on HBO’s “Band of Brothers” and in Ridley Scott’s “Black Hawk Down.” But just as his career was taking off, his addiction to alcohol and crack cocaine pulled him off course.

Little, Brown, $27.99 By DAN DELUCA The Philadelphia Inquirer “Train Dreams” by Denis Johnson; Farrar, Straus & Giroux (116 pages, $18) D enis Johnson’s “Train Dreams” is like a long out-of-print B-side, a hard-to-find celebrated work treasured by those in the know that’s finally become available to the rest of us. The novella was being published Tuesday in book form after appearing previously only in the Paris Review and the PEN/O. Henry Prize Stories 2003 edition. The question is: Does it live up to its reputation? “Train Dreams,” a mini-epic set mostly in the Idaho panhandle in the early yearsofthe20thcentury,waspraisedby prize jurors David Guterson (“Snow Falling on Cedars”), who cited its “exquisite use of the English language,” and Jennifer Egan (“A Visit From the Goon Squad”), who extolled its “otherworldly atmospheric richness.” Since he wrote “Train Dreams,” Johnson, whose best known early work is the 1992 story collection “Jesus’ Son” — made into a 1999 art-house hit movie starring Billy Crudup — has published two more novels. The capacious Vietnam novel “Tree of Smoke” came out in 2007, and won the National Book Award. The bluntedged, fast-paced, and a-lot-less-long noir exercise “Nobody Move” followed in 2009. “TrainofDreams”isanoddbook,butastrangelycompelling one. It’s the story of the life of one man, Robert Grainier, who is born in1880 and dies in1968, never having spoken on a telephone. He spends his early adulthood working on great transportation projects that reshape the Pacific Northwest. He’s “hungry to be around other such massive undertakings, whereswarmsofmendidawaywithportionsoftheforest, and assembled structures as big as anything going, knitting massive wooden trestles in the air of impassable chasms, always bigger, longer, deeper.” HARDCOVER NONFICTION 1.

Gotham, $26 The book begins with a comical episode in which a Chinese laborer suspected of theft evades the efforts of a team of men to toss him to his death off a railroad trestle into teeming rapids below, and the woodsy workmen’s world is wonderfully evoked, particularly in the first chapters. Grainier and his fellows “fought the forest from sunrise until suppertime, felling and bucking the giant spruce ... accomplishing labors … living with the sticky feel of pitch in their beards, sweat washing the dustofftheirlongjohnsandcakingitinthe creases of their necks and joints. ...” Johnson’s mythopoeic prose recalls Cormac McCarthy and nods to Bret Harte. And as the story takes a tragic — and a mystical, magic realist — turn after Grainier returns home to the cabin, much of the pleasure in reading “Train Dreams” comes from the luxurious exactitude of Johnson’s writing, as when he describes Grainier entering the site of a cabin destroyed by wildfire. “Train Dreams” can fit into your back pocket, but it is not a small, perfect thing. As Grainier settles into the life of a hermit, communing (and howling) with wolves in the pitch-black night, his story becomes directionless, save for a few episodic jolts. He goes to town and is overcome with lust after seeing a traveling sideshow. In a scene of heavy-handed symbolism, Elvis Presley comes through a Montana town on a private train, bringing the ever-accelerating modern world with him, but Grainier arrives too late even to wave at the passerby, left behind once again. But for all its idiosyncrasies, “Train Dreams” is a peculiarly gripping book. It palpably conjures the beauty of an American West then still very much a place of natural wonder and menace, and places one man’s lonely life in that landscape, where he’s at once comfortably at home and utterly lost.

COGDILL Sun Sentinel “Darkness, My Old Friend” by Lisa Unger; Crown (368 pages, $24) Sometimes, the scariest things are what we don’t know about our neighbors and friends, or what goes on behind closed doors. And even scarier is what happens when we are forced to face our deepest flaws and acknowledge what we are capable of doing. Lisa Unger uses the fears found in everyday life to pump up her exciting psychological thriller “Darkness, My Old Friend.” In this enthralling follow-up to last year’s “Fragile,” Unger again tackles family secrets, the legacy of violence and the complexity of relationships. Again, Unger shows that the family structure makes for some of the most involving mysteries. “Darkness, My Old Friend” returns to The Hollows, N.Y., a seemingly idyllic town that should be far enough away from New York City that it is not affected by the Big Apple’s crime and problems. Jones Cooper retired last year from The Hollows Police Department, following the revelation of a situation from his past. He now works around the house and reluctantly attends therapy. To keep himself busy, he does odd jobs for vacationing neighbors — watering their plants, checking on their homes. It’s been suggested he get his private detective license but he doesn’t have the energy. Across town, businessman Kevin Carr’s debts are piling up — “failure wasn’t a feeling; it was a taste in his mouth, an ache at the base of his neck.” He is determined to leave his life — no matter the cost to his family, which controls with an iron hand. Jones is pulled into an old case when Michael Holt returns to his hometown after his father’s death. Michael is determined to find out what happened to his mother, who left the family when he was 14 years old. He wants the truth, even if it means learning that his father killed his mom. And 15-year-old Willow Graves, who has reluctantly moved to The Hollows with her newly divorced mother, finds the town a bore and easily falls in with the wrong kind of friends. Unger skillfully pulls together the various stories in an exciting and logical way. The Hollows is filled with people who have known each other all their lives and it is hard for many of the residents to separate memories of the past with the realities of the present. “The Hollows had a way of encouraging paths to cross.” “Darkness, My Old Friend” moves at a brisk pace as Unger makes us desperately want to know what drives these various characters. The Hollows perfectly depicts the microcosm of life in an insular town that has far-reaching effects.

And yet, if I lived here, its familiarity would feel like home. That it’s all delivered without a laziness but the right amount of unfussy sincerity, means the world. The bananas on my French toast, sliced lengthwise, had dark, charred grill marks; a waffle was topped with kielbasa and Belgian beer- cheese sauce — it felt like the kind of meal you might assemble during a 3 a.m. refrigerator run. We drove toward downtown, past Comet Cafe, which has a good bar with bad lighting and where I ate meatloaf and drank too much a couple of years ago. Then we stopped at Brady Street, the fun street, we were told, though it felt more calculated than the mature street (Downer Street), and less charming, a bohemian neighborhood given over to upscale bars and restaurants of little distinction, the reality of most midsize cities with a goodsize college. So we followed the smell of bread to Peter Sciortino’s Bakery and listened to elderly women attempt to order a cake from a teenager who had lost patience. Eating our way across Milwaukee had this pace: casual, random, the city throwing off that insular feel of a second-tier place that gave up long ago trying to impress outsiders and now exists Top Value Kitchens 17 East Center Street Shavertown, PA phone: 570.675.7083 See our ad inside MARTZ TOURS      SEPT. 17-24                    CALL MARTZ TRAILWAYS FOR THESE: • GIANTS, HOME: Rams Sept. 19, Bills Oct. 16, Dolphins Oct. 30, Eagles Nov. 20, Packers Dec.4, Redskins Dec. 18, Cowboys Jan. 1 • PHILLIES HOME: Cardinals Sept. 17 • BROADWAY: Sister Act, Book of Mormon, Godspell, War Horse, Jersey Boys • MEDIEVAL TIMES TOURNAMENT & FEAST SEPT. 10 Lyndhurst, NJ • CATSKILLS DOME TRAIN & TIOGA DOWNS CASINO SEPT. 10 Lunch, Rebate • GOLDEN GIRLS MURDER MYSTERY SEPT. 17 Peddlers Village Dinner Theater • FEAST OF SAN GENNARO SEPT. 24 New York City Street Festival • HISTORIC JIM THORPE & LEHIGH GORGE SEPT. 24 Mansion, Jail, Lunch • NYC SIGHTSEEING & WORLD YACHT BRUNCH CRUISE SEPT. 25 • MAINE SEACOAST 5-DAY SEPT. 26-30 Kennebunkport, Boothbay • PA GRAND CANYON OCT. 8 Covered Wagon Tour, Great Meal, Wellsboro • HUDSON RIVER VALLEY 2-DAY OCT. 9-10 Mansions, Wine Sampling Tour • ENGLISHTOWN FLEA MARKET OCT. 1 CALL 821-3855 or 1-800-432-8069 Visit us online at for its own contentment. We had been told by friends in Chicago to seek out the James Beard-certified joints — Sanford, Hinterland — but opted for browsing the Milwaukee Public Market (414-336-1111,, which is low slung and resembles a bus terminal. At the counter for Kehr’s, a longtime Milwaukee candymaker, we bought a “meltaway” chocolate bar, made of chocolate begetting more chocolate, and a rare instance in this life when you can find a candy bar outside a wrapper. Pushing my way through crowds of people in matching T-shirts, newly arrived from a charity walk, I held the candy bar in one hand, an applepear-ginger-chai smoothie in the other, and admired the local jelly. Bea’s Ho-Made jelly, in particular. Though someone should tell them about the name. Same for Best Place (414-6301609,, which suggests a local dive, though what you find is a castle, a towering brick construction gone gray and black with weathering, ringed with turrets. Best Place is basically a small tavern in a beautiful spot — Blue Ribbon Hall, in the former headquarters of Pabst (which closed in 1996), the room circled with 70-year-old frescoes from Chicago artist Edgar Miller that lay out the history of Pabst and the brewing process. Jim Haertel, a big, boisterous local guy, bought the place a decade ago. He’ll give you a personal tour. He doesn’t serve food, but his wife, Karen, pulls the tap, and they really don’t want you to leave. The next morning, we swung AUTO-BUS • Sands Casino $20 - 2nd Tues. & Every Thurs.

That feeling that washes over when you’re someplace warm and unrealistic? I had that feeling the other day in Milwaukee. If that doesn’t sound unlikely enough, let’s up the ante: I had that feeling during a weekend in Milwaukee in which the goal was to eat smartly, surprisingly. To go beyond brats and beer — or at the least goose them, with a clever twist. Specifically, I had that finallyat-home sensation at Roots Restaurant and Cellar, on Brewers Hill, overlooking a thin, winding river and the vast, flat lots that border downtown to the east. It’s nothing radical — chef-farmerowner John Raymond’s elegant 7year-old haunt pioneered farmto-table aesthetics here, putting emphasis on his eponymous root vegetables, gathered from nearby farms and served with solemnity. Roots (414-374-8480, tells a familiar story. Less obvious are honey-glazed parsnips that aren’t a vegetarian afterthought. Our waiter, a slightly goofy close-talker, put a skillet in front of me ringed with what was purportedly baked ricotta gnocchi, though more realistically, engorged cheese dumplings — albeit nestled on top of fried, crisp greens, trumpet mushrooms and a light tomato sauce. It was glossy-food-magazine gorgeous, and inviting, a compromise between the girth I expected of Milwaukee and the soulfulness I found. It was like that a lot. I would cringe at melted Wisconsin cheddar on frisee — then delight at how comforting frisee is in Wisconsin. The large man seated across from me at Cafe Hollander (414963-6366, on Downer Avenue, on a bright Saturday morning in May, wore a Green Bay Packers sweat shirt and Brewers cap, and his napkin was tucked into his shirt collar then stretched across his stomach like a Snuggie. If I had assumptions about Milwaukee — snobbish, obvious stereotypes, based on nothing more than decades of “Laverne & Shirley,” Vince Lombardi, sculpted-cheese headgear and the bronze Henry Winkler statue in Milwaukee’s downtown (no joke) — he embodied them. He also didn’t fit in. Outside was a triangular area scattered with tables — the kind that begs to be in Europe, away from traffic and full of languid readers. Couples in workout suits and flushed faces pushed strollers and browsed the art-house marquee across the street, a portrait of upper-middle-class prosperity. Cafe Hollander itself felt calculated, and did fit in, with the by Alterra on the Lake, part of a chain of coffeehouses, found in the old Milwaukee River Flushing Station, a water wheel at the center of the room. Out front is a patio, with Lincoln Memorial Drive rushing past and the white, sail-like architecture of the Milwaukee Art Museum just to the south. We had finished the night at Distil, an overly stylized bar downtown with great drinks. The memory of the warm auburn color alone of its Made in Milwaukee — Sprecher’s ginger beer, Rishi plum tea, vodka, beneath a thin sudsy layer of Schlitz foam, clever and generous — reminded me how cozy this place was. Breakfast was south, on the way home, in Bay View, a neighborhood far enough from the supposedly fun neighborhoods to lack any signs of calculation. We ate at Honeypie Cafe (414-4897437,, Southern, hip, familiar, with tattooed waitresses. The slice of ham on my excellent biscuit was so big it was folded over, tucked inside. We read the paper, let the morning pass, and when the front room seemed overburdened with people waiting for tables, we turned greedy, lingered over hash browns, asked for more coffee. We were in Milwaukee for 36 hours, an hour from home. As I left Honeypie, I spotted a car against the curb with a telling bumper sticker: “I’d Rather Be Here, Now.” TIMES LEADER SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2011 PAGE 1G MARKETPLACE CALL TO PLACE 24/7 570.829.7130 800.273.7130 SEARCH: TIMESLEADER.COM/CLASSIFIED EMAIL: [email protected] 110 100 ANNOUNCEMENTS 0 $ 110 ALL JUNK CARS WANTED!!
