MIAMI Dear seniors, your Medicare benets arent changing under the Affordable Care Act. Thats the message federal health ofcials are trying to get out to some older consumers confused by overlapping enrollment periods for Medicare and so-called Obamacare.

Editors note: This is one in an occasional series by The Associated Press about the impact of the Affordable Care Acts health insurance exchanges. Open enrollment for these exchanges, or marketplaces, begins Oct. 1.
Medicare beneciaries dont have to do anything differently and will continue to go to Medicare. gov to sign up for plans. But advocates say many have been confused by a massive media blitz directing consumers to new online insurance exchanges set up as part of the federal health law. Many of the same insurance companies are offering coverage for Medicare and the exchanges.

Medicare open enrollment starts Oct. 15 and closes Dec. 7, while enrollment for the new state exchanges for people 65 and under launches Oct. 1 and runs through March. Most seniors are not at all informed. Most seniors worry theyre going to lose their health coverage because of the law, said See OBAMACARE | 8A

An Associated Press analysis of 607,380 bridges in the most recent federal National Bridge Inventory showed that 65,605 were classied as structurally decient and 20,808 as fracture critical. Of those, 7,795 were both a combination of red ags that experts say indicate signicant disrepair and similar risk of collapse. A bridge is deemed fracture critical when it doesnt have redundant protections and is at risk of collapse if

RATED ARRRRRRR: To assist you in navigating Thursdays Talk Like A Pirate Day, we offer you these helpful hints. The Pirate phrase, Arrrggghh, me hearties, I be keelhaulin down to Neptunes grog shoppe fer some vittles and froth o the ol oaken barrel, can be translated to, Would you care to accompany me to dinner? And the phrase, Yarrr, by the beard on Davey Jones craggy face, we be fixin fer some fresh blood on the ol yardarm, means, Excuse me, can I have this dance? THE PARTYING DEAD: For some reason

science has not fully explained, zombies are in these days. Theyre on hit TV shows, in movies, commercials, video games, my backyard well, not that last one. And this weekend, theyll be all over Scranton. Its the three-day undead fest called Infect Scranton and it starts Friday with an attempt to break the world record for the most zombies gathered in one place. (Thats at 6 p.m. at the The Mall at Steamtown, if youre undead and interested.) Theres far more than that, with a zombie pub crawl, zombie convention and zombie survival challenge. Luckily, theres no zombie arm wrestling, because that could get awkward. WELCOME AUTOMPNE: If youre a fan of summer, you might want to give it a hug and

say your farewells for the year, because its out of here this weekend. Here comes the season of fall foliage, football, turtlenecks, turkey, pumpkin spice and cornucopias. Autumn makes its official Northern Hemisphere debut at 4:44 p.m. on Sunday. Did you know the word autumn comes from the Old French word autompne, which means grandpas getting pickled on the

hard cider again. Its true sort of. CIRQUES UP: So, you have a choice for your entertainment dollar: You can either go see a performance of the philharmonic, or you can check out the circus. What do you do? Ahhhh, choosing is for losers! If you go see Cirque Musica at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Mohegan Sun Arena, you can have both. The show, from those limber Canadians who brought you Cirque du Soleil, combines beautiful music and jaw-dropping acrobatics, which if you tried them at home, would leave you in traction for eternity.

A teacher in the Wilkes-Barre Area School District, Fischer said bullying is a threat for students that can have life altering effects. Bullying is a major problem and we have to be hands-on with it to stop it, Fischer said. It cant be tolerated, he said. Fischer organized car shows at the Solomon Plains Elementary School for years and decided it was time to expand. He said he saw the Toyota Pavilion as the perfect place to do that. This is a great place for this type of community event and we plan to make it an annual festival, he said. He thanked Live Nation for donating the venue and the personnel. Alan Stout, who works to educate local students through The Bridge Youth Services AntiBullying program, stressed antibullying programs are becoming increasingly important in area schools. He said one of the most difcult type of bullying to ght is cyberbullying, which he called the most cowardly type. Its not like in the past where a bully pushed somebody and could get pushed back, Stout said. Now bullying is done in complete anonymity and from a distance, where the victim is defenseless, he said. Stout said he believes the antibullying efforts in local schools are having a positive effect, but he admits more has to be done. He emphasized involvement from the students might be the most effective way to ght it. The students are the greatest asset. If we get enough of them involved, they can make an impact on bullying, he said. Joe Lazzaro, president of the Corvette Club, said his group was willing to participate in the festival because it

Brian Fischer, one of the event organizers, said the community groups took advantage of the generosity of the facilitys owners, Live Nation, who donated use of the pavilion, to hold the festival with an overarching goal to promote anti-bullying programs. The Bridge Youth Services and the Wyoming Valley Childrens Association were involved, he said. The event included eight musical performers, with The Badlees performing as the nal act. They all volunteered their time for the cause. In addition, the Corvette Club of Northeast Pennsylvania

County talks with unions to begin


Closed-door contract negotiations are set to begin this week with Luzerne Countys 300-member, rank-and-le residual union, which is represented by the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, or AFSCME. Bargaining issues will include councils new directive to convert all full-time employees to at least 37.5 hours per week. Residual members work 32.5 hours Jennifer except Road and Bridge and Learn911 employees, who work 40 Andes hours. The contract expires the County end of this year, and the union Notebook has the right to strike if negotiations fail. Four of the countys 10 unions can strike. Residual workers discussed a strike in 2009 when its current contract was under negotiation, but a pact was approved. County ofcials and unions have managed to avoid strikes in recent years. Unionized Aging and Children and Youth employees had a ve-day work stoppage in 2001. Former county chief clerk/administrator Eugene Klein said the last full-scale strike was in the early 1980s involving AFSCME workers. Five county employees retired in August, according to county Manager Robert Lawtons latest personnel report: Children and Youth caseworker Sandra Moosic, probation ofcer Brian Leighton, prison corrections ofcers Alex Rynkiewicz and Anna Wright and assistant public defender William Ruzzo. Council will hold a public budget work session at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the council meeting room at the courthouse focusing on the judicial services and records division. Senior auditor Brian Swetz said the county is still awaiting nal audits from two outside boards Flood Protection and Retirement that are needed to nish the countys 2012 audit, which was supposed to be competed by June 30 under home rule. Chief Solicitor C. David Pedri told council he is nalizing contract negotiations with a nancial institution to handle all county banking and plans to present the proposed contract to council Sept. 24. Collection letters were sent last week to more than 400 people who did not pay courtordered fees for protection-from-abuse cases, Pedri said. The $108 fee covers county costs to process the PFAs. In an attempt to beef up revenue, the administration has asked the county court to approve fee increases in the criminal court records department because the fees have not been raised in eight years, Pedri said. Councilman Harry Haas did not have enough council support Tuesday to schedule a security summit on crime. Lawton agreed to initiate discussions among workers on ways to reduce crime. Councilman Jim Bobeck said Haas can still independently gather feedback from law enforcement agencies. During the discussion on crime, Councilman Stephen J. Urban said two youth recently kicked in one of his apartment doors at his Wilkes-Barre property. Council approved Councilman Rick Williams request to the county Planning Commission to require bike lanes, sidewalks and public transportation accommodations in certain developments seeking subdivision and land development approval.

company of other people who understand their loss, she said. More than 38,000 Americans died by suicide in 2010, according to AFSP statistics, with nearly 1,600 of those deaths in Pennsylvania. Suicide is also the second-leading cause of death for people between the ages of 15 and 24, said Pat Gainey, regional coordina-

tor for the AFSP. People need to wake up and understand that were dealing with a national health crisis, Gainey said. Depression is the most diagnosable and treatable of all of the mood disorders and most people who die from suicide were suffering from depression, Gainey said.

LYONS, Colo. The cars that normally clog Main Street in Lyons on the way to Rocky Mountain National Park have been replaced by military supply trucks. Shop owners in Estes Park hurriedly cleared their wares in fear that the Big Thompson River will rise again. A plywood sign encouraged residents mucking out their homes to Hang in there. Days of rain and oods have transformed the outdoorsy mountain communities in Colorados Rocky Mountain foothills affectionately known The Gore-Tex Vortex from a paradise into a disaster area with little in the way of supplies or services and more rain falling Sunday. The string of communities from Boulder to Estes Park, the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park, is a base for backpackers and nature lovers where blue-collar and yuppie sensibilities exist side by side. Now, roadways have crumbled, scenic bridges are destroyed, the site of the bluegrass festival is washed out and most shops are closed. Chris Rodes, one of Lyons newest residents, said the change is so drastic that he is considering moving away just two weeks after settling there. Its not the same, Rodes said. All these beautiful places, its just brown mud. Estes Park town administrator Frank Lancaster said it could be a month or more before things get back to some semblance of normal, and he advised visitors who would normally ock there during the golden September days to stay away. The residents who remained or began trickling back if they were allowed to do so were left to watch out for one another. Restaurateurs and grocers in Lyons were distributing food to their neighbors as others arrived in groups carrying supplies. Scott Martin, 25, drove the half-hour from Boulder Saturday to deliver drinking water and gasoline to a friends parents. He ed Lyons amid a torrential downpour on Wednesday night after the mountain stream that cuts through town gushed into his basement. Martin grew up tubing down the river and hiking the mountains, and like many residents, he still jumps in the water after work. Looking into the cottonwood and aspen trees at the outskirts of town, he wondered when he would be able to do those things again. Best case, its just mud everywhere; in everyones yard and all the streets, he said. From the mountain commu-

It was the latest in a series of attacks on prominent women in Afghanistan, where just 1 percent of the police force is female. The ofcer, identied only as Negar, was buying grass for her lambs outside her home when two gunmen drove up on a motorbike and red at her, said Omar Zawak, a spokesman for the governor of Helmand province. The 38-year-old suffered a bullet wound to the neck, and the medical team treating her is trying to keep her from being paralyzed as a result of the injury, said one of the doctors who operated on her.

The Costa Concordia lies on its side Sunday on the Tuscan Island of Giglio, Italy. An international team of engineers is expected to try to upright the luxury liner, which capsized in 2012.

Residents of northeastern and parts of central Pennsylvania will have to dial 10 digits in order to make phone calls starting this week. The state Public Utility Commission said customers within the 570 area code will have to dial the area code plus the phone number beginning Saturday. The area code covers cities including Scranton, Wilkes-Barre and Williamsport. The change comes ahead of the introduction of the 272 area code, which will be assigned in the region beginning Oct. 21. The area is running out of 570 numbers. Those who take a new 272 number will have to dial 10 digits, too.

2 bystanders hurt in police shooting

GIGLIO ISLAND, Italy Authorities have given the nal go-ahead for a daring attempt today to pull upright the crippled Costa Concordia cruise liner from its side in the waters off Tuscany, a makeor-break engineering feat that has never before been tried in such conditions. The ship capsized there 20 months ago, and Italys national Civil Protection agency waited until sea and weather conditions were forecast for dawn Monday before giving the OK to try to right it. In a statement Sunday, the Civil Protection agency said the sea and wind conditions fall within the range of operating feasibility. The Concordia struck a reef near Giglio Island the night of Jan. 13, 2012, took on water through a 230-foot gash in its hull and capsized just outside the harbor. Thirty-two of the 4,200 passengers and crew members died. The bodies of two of the dead have never been recovered, and may lie beneath the wreckage. Never before have engineers tried to right such a huge ship so close to land. If the operation succeeds, the Concordia will be towed away and broken up for scrap.

Salvage experts had originally hoped to right the 115,000-ton vessel last spring, but heavy storms hampered work. Crews have raced to get the Concordia upright before another winter season batters the ship against its rocky perch damage that would increase the chance that it couldnt be towed away in one piece. Salvage master Nick Sloane seemed optimistic in the nal hours before the operation began, saying Sunday that testing of the machinery in recent days had actually lifted the 985-foot ship up about 2.5 inches, or 0.15 degrees. There have been concerns that the rocks of the reef on which the Concordia is resting were so embedded in the hull that the ship would resist being pulled off. We know that she is lively enough to move, Sloane told reporters. The operation to bring the ship vertical involves dozens of crank-like pulleys slowly rotating the ship upright at a rate of about 3 yards per hour, using chains that have been looped around its hull. Tanks lled with water on the exposed side of the vessel will also help rotate it upward, using gravity to pull the exposed side down. Once upright, those tanks and an equal number that will be xed on the opposite side eventually will be lled

with air, rather than water, to help oat the ship up off the reef so it can be towed away. Last week, the head of Italys Civil Protection agency, Franco Gabrielli, said there was no Plan B if the rotation failed since there would be no other way to try again. But Sloane said he was condent the ship would withstand the stress of the rotation. The most critical time will be the rst hour or so of the operation, since thats when the ship will be detached from the reef. This weekend, tourists and locals waded and swam in pristine waters just beyond the harbor, with the hulking wreck an ugly backdrop and reminder of the harrowing night when a few thousand people straggled ashore. Since the Concordia came to rest on its side, visitors have come to gawk at the wreck, providing the tiny shing island a yearround tourist season it never had before. Mayor Sergio Ortelli has asked for patience from the islands 1,400 residents during Mondays operation, which he expected would last about 10-12 hours. Ferries linking Giglio to mainland Tuscany stop running at dawn Monday, meaning teachers for Giglios two schools were arriving Sunday night for classes.

Two police ofcers red on a man who was acting erratically and dodging cars on a busy Manhattan street Saturday night, wounding two bystanders and sending people running for cover, authorities said. Police said the man made movements suggesting he had a weapon, though he turned out to be unarmed. The ofcers shots missed him, and he was eventually brought down by a stun gun. Authorities identied the man as Glenn Broadnax, 35, of Brooklyn. He faces multiple counts including menacing, riot, criminal possession of a controlled substance, and resisting arrest. He was in custody, and The Associated Press couldnt locate a phone listing for his home. The encounter happened just before 10 p.m. near the Port Authority Bus Terminal, a block away from Times Square.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. An unarmed man who was shot and killed by a police ofcer in North Carolina after a wreck was a former football player for Florida A&M University, school ofcials said Sunday. Jonathan A. Ferrell, 24, played for the school in 200910 and had recently moved to North Carolina. Early Saturday, he had apparently been in a wreck and was seeking help at a nearby house early Saturday, according to a statement from CharlotteMecklenburg police. A woman answered the door and, when she didnt recognize the man, called 911.

Ofcers responding to the breaking-and-entering call found Ferrell a short distance from the home, police said. As they approached him, Ferrell ran toward the ofcers and was Ferrell hit with a Taser. Police said he continued to run toward them when ofcer Randall Kerrick red his gun, hitting Ferrell several times. Ferrell died at the scene. Police called the Ferrell and Kerricks initial encounter appropriate and lawful. But in their statement late

Saturday, they said the investigation showed that the subsequent shooting of Mr. Ferrell was excessive and Kerrick did not have a lawful right to discharge his weapon during this encounter. Police said Kerrick was charged with voluntary manslaughter, which under North Carolina law involves killing without malice using excessive force in exercising imperfect self-defense. Police were not expected to further describe the incident Sunday, CMPD spokesman Ofcer Keith Trietley said, and a report was not available Sunday. Kerrick, 27, of Midland, turned himself in for booking

Saturday evening and was released on $50,000 bond, according to the Mecklenburg County Sheriffs Ofce website. Kerrick joined the police force in April 2011. FAMU Interim Athletic Director Michael Smith conrmed Sunday that Ferrell played the safety position for the schools football team during the 2009 and 2010 seasons. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family during their time of bereavement, Smith said in an emailed statement. A search of public records indicated that Ferrell began living in Charlotte early this year after moving from Tallahassee, Fla., home to FAMU.

BAGHDAD A wave of car bombings and other attacks in Iraq killed at least 58 people in mostly Shiite-majority cities on Sunday, another bloody reminder of the governments failure to stem the surge of violence that is feeding sectarian tensions. Iraq is experiencing its deadliest bout of violence since 2008, raising fears the country is returning to a period of widespread killing such as that which pushed it to the brink of civil war following the 2003 U.S.-led invasion. More than 4,000 people have been killed in attacks since the start of April, including 804 just in August, according to United Nations gures. Sundays deadliest attack was in the city of Hillah, 60 miles south of Baghdad, where a car bomb near an outdoor market killed nine civilians and wounded 15 others, a police ofcer said. A few minutes later, another car bomb went off nearby, killing six civilians and wounding 14, he added. In the nearby town of Iskandariyah, 30 miles south of the capital, another car bomb hit a parking lot, killing four civilians and wounding nine, police said. Another car bomb went off in an industrial area of the Shiite city of Karbala, killing ve and wounding 25, a police ofcer said. Karbala is 50 miles south of Baghdad. In the aftermath, security ofcials inspected burnt-out cars in front of what appeared to be a smashed row of workshops. In Kut, another Shiitedominated city 100 miles southeast of Baghdad, a car bomb targeted construction workers and food stalls, killing two and wounding 14, another provincial police ofcer said. Seven more civilians were killed and 31 others were wounded when four separate car bombs ripped through the towns of Suwayrah and Hafriyah outside Kut, police said. In Baghdads northern Sunnidominated Azamiyah neighborhood, a car bomb that exploded near the convoy of the head of Baghdads provincial council killed three and wounded eight, police say. The council head escaped unharmed. Two other car bombs hit the southern cities of Basra and Nasiriyah, killing eight civilians and wounding 26, two police ofcers said. And two more civilians were killed when a bomb hit a police patrol in Baghdads Sunni western suburb of Abu Ghraib. Nine other people were wounded. To the northeast of Baghdad, gunmen broke into a farm in the village of Abu Sayda and killed three Sunni farmers, police said No one has claimed responsibility for the blasts, which targeted commercial areas and parking lots in seven cities. But systematically organized waves of bombings are often used by al-Qaidas local branch, known as the Islamic State of Iraq, to undermine condence in the Shiite-led government.

Ala.church marks 50th anniversary of bombing


JAY REEVES
Associated Press

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. Hundreds of people black and white, many holding hands, lled an Alabama church that was bombed by the Ku Klux Klan 50 years ago Sunday to mark the anniversary of the blast that killed four little girls and became a landmark moment in the civil rights struggle. The Rev. Arthur Price taught the same Sunday school lesson that members of 16th Street Baptist Church heard the morning of the bombing A Love That Forgives. Then, the rusty old church bell was tolled four times as the girls names were read. Bombing survivor Sarah Collins Rudolph, who lost her right eye and sister Addie Mae Collins in the blast, stood by as members laid a wreath at the spot where the dynamite device was placed along an outside wall. Rudolph was 12 at the time, and her family left the church after the bombing. She said it was important to return in memory of her sister, who was 14, and the three other girls

who died: Carole Robertson and Cynthia Wesley Morris, both 14, and Denise McNair, 11. God spared me to live and tell just what happened on that day, said Rudolph, who testied against the Klansmen convicted years later in the bombing. Congregation members and visitors sang the old hymn Love Lifted Me and joined hands in prayer.

The somber Sunday school lesson was followed by a raucous, packed worship service with gospel music and believers waving their hands. During the sermon, the Rev. Julius Scruggs of Huntsville, president of the National Baptist Convention USA, said, God said you may murder four little girls, but you wont murder the dream of

justice and liberty for all. Later Sunday, Attorney General Eric Holder and others were set to attend a commemoration. Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, a Birmingham native who went to school with McNair, was among the scheduled speakers. The dynamite bomb went off outside the church Sept. 15, 1963. Of the Klansmen

convicted years later, one remains imprisoned. Two others died in prison. Two young men, both black, were shot to death in Birmingham in the chaos that followed the bombing. Birmingham was strictly segregated at the time of the bombing, which occurred as city schools were being racially integrated for the rst time. The all-black 16th Street Baptist was a gathering spot for civil rights demonstrations for months before the blast. The bombing became a powerful symbol of the depth of racial hatred in the South and helped build momentum for later laws, including the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. During the commemoration, an honor guard composed of black and whites ofcers and reghters watched over ceremonies with mixed-race crowd, something that would have been unthinkable in Birmingham in 1963. That same year, white police ofcers and reghters used dogs and water hoses on black demonstrators marching for equal rights. President Barack Obama issued a statement not-

ing that earlier this year the four girls were posthumously awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, one of the countrys highest civilian honors. That horric day in Birmingham, Alabama quickly became a dening moment for the Civil Rights Movement. It galvanized Americans all across the country to stand up for equality and broadened support for a movement that would eventually lead to the passage of the Civil

Rights Act of 1964, Obama said. The Rev. Bernice King, a daughter of the late the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., noted the changed city in a prayer. We thank you father for the tremendous progress we have made in 50 years, that we can sit in the safe connes of this sanctuary being protected by the city of Birmingham when 50 years ago the city turned its eye and its ears away from us, she said.

Despite pressure, ban on gay blood donors endures


DAVID CRARY
AP National Writer

NEW YORK The U.S. gay-rights movement has achieved many victories in recent years on marriage, military service and other fronts. Yet one vestige of an earlier, more wary era remains rmly in place: the 30-year-old nationwide ban on blood donations by gay and bisexual men. Dating from the rst years of the AIDS epidemic, the ban is a source of frustration to many gay activists, and also to many leading players in the nations health and blood-supply community who have joined in calling for change. In June, the American Medical Association voted to oppose the policy. AMA board member William Kobler called it discriminatory and not based on sound science. Last month, more than 80 members of Congress wrote to the Department of Health and Human Services, criticizing the lifetime ban as an outdated measure that perpetuates inaccurate stereotypes about gay men. On some college campuses, students have urged boycotts of blood drives until the ban is repealed. Over the summer, activists organized a National Gay Blood Drive asking gay men to visit blood centers, take tests to show their blood was safe, and then try to donate in deance of the ban. In the face of such pressure, the Food and Drug Administration the HHS agency that regulates Americas blood supply has been unwavering. The lifetime ban will be eased, the FDA says, only if supported by scientic data showing that a change in policy would not present a signicant and preventable risk to blood recipients. Under the auspices of HHS, a few studies are in

progress that might lay the groundwork for a review of the policy. Department spokeswoman Diane Gianelli said the studies reect a commitment to continuously improving the safety and availability of the nations blood supply. However, some activists are impatient at the prospect of a research process thats likely to extend over several years with an uncertain outcome. They argue that the U.S. could move now to emulate Spain and Italy, where blanket bans on gay blood donations have been replaced by policies that ban

donations by anyone gay or straight whos recently had unsafe sex, while allowing donations from gays and bisexuals whose blood is tested as safe and whose sexual behavior is deemed to pose no risk. We do not think HHS is moving fast enough, said Jason Cianciotto of Gay Mens Health Crisis, a New York-based nonprot engaged in AIDS prevention and care. Cianciotto said the ban perpetuates the stigma that gay and bisexual men are dangerous to public health, and thus undercuts

efforts to combat HIV. The FDA says its policy is not intended as a judgment on donors sexual orientation, and instead is based on the documented risk of blood infections, such as HIV, associated with maleto-male sex. According to the FDA, men who have had sex with other men represent about 2 percent of the U.S. population, yet accounted for at least 61 percent of all new HIV infections in the U.S. in 2010. The FDA implemented the ban in 1983, when health ofcials were rst recognizing the risk of contracting AIDS via blood transfusions. Under the policy, blood

donations are barred from any man who has had sex with another man at any time since 1977 the start of the AIDS epidemic in the U.S.

GRAND ISLAND, N.Y. The worlds oldest man, a 112-year-old self-taught musician, coal miner and gin rummy acionado from western New York, has died. He was 112. Salustiano SanchezBlazquez died Friday at a nursing home in Grand Island, according to Robert Young, senior gerontology consultant with Guinness World Records. Sanchez-Blazquez became the worlds oldest man when Jiroemon Kimura died June 12 at age 116. Born June 8, 1901, in village of El Tejado de Bejar, Spain, he was known for his talent on the dulzaina, a double-reed wind instrument that he taught himself and played at weddings and village celebrations. At 17, he moved with his older brother Pedro and a group of friends to Cuba, where they worked in the cane elds. In 1920, he came to the United States through Ellis Island and worked in the coal mines of Lynch, Ky. Ultimately, he moved to the Niagara Falls area of New York, where he worked in construction and in the industrial furnaces. He married his wife, Pearl, in 1934. A spokeswoman for Sanchez-Blazquezs family did not immediately return a phone message Saturday. In a statement provided by Guinness World Records earlier this summer, Sanchez-Blazquez whose nickname was Shorty said he was humbled by the attention, saying he didnt feel he accomplished anything special just because he has lived longer than most. He says, Im an old man and lets leave it at that, his daughter, 69-year-old Irene Johnson, said at the time. Sanchez-Blazquez lived with Johnson in Grand Island after his wife died in 1988; he moved to a nursing home in 2007. We did our best, Johnson said. We werent going to put him somewhere just because he was old.

Hesitancy is hallmark of Obama foreign policy


A dozen years after 9/11, Barack Obamas address on Syria provided a sobering insight into US strategic hesitancy. It underlined the extent to which prevarication and weakness have become the hallmarks of the presidents administration in dealing with the challenges of jihadist extremism and global terrorism. As a reluctant belligerent, he has clutched, understandably, at Russias proposal to place Syrias chemical weapons under international control. He has used this to delay the congressional vote on a retaliatory strike against the Assad regime. No one can reasonably criticize Obama for that: a diplomatic way out would be better than military action. But what he could not disguise is the extent to which Syria, like so many current security and strategic issues, is bedeviled by Obamas penchant for leading from behind. His case for a retaliatory military strike against Syria is well made. It was indeed the worst chemical weapons attack of the 21st century. But the case against Bashar al-Assad has been compelling for two years (long before the Syrian rebels were inltrated by al-Qaida-linked militants). In that time, 100,000 Syrians have been slaughtered.

WORLD OPINION: AUSTRALIA ON SYRIA

Yet Washington has allowed itself to be outmaneuvered by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Now Obama is beholden to Mr. Putin to get him off the hook. Apart from giving the orders that led to the killing of Osama bin Laden, Obama has failed to provide the rm leadership the post-9/11 world needs. During his re-election campaign, Obama pronounced al-Qaida decimated and on the path to defeat. Obama has sometimes bordered on apologetic about Americas global role, sending all the wrong signals to the likes of Iran and North Korea. No wonder governments from Riyadh to Seoul are worried about their reliance on the US. There should be no shame in wisely asserting American power. Libyas Muammar Gadda rapidly surrendered his WMDs when he saw what happened to Saddam Hussein. Military force must always be a last option, but we need more decisive leadership from Washington. Former president George W. Bush had to work assiduously to muster backing from allies and instill fear into enemies after 9/11. Yet, in deriding the legitimacy and success of the US in Iraq, Obama increased his challenges on Syria.

State, not national, strategy for colleges


President Obamas recent visit to Scranton, Pa., and other cities in the northeastern United States highlighted a concern of many Americans: the price of a college education. He outlined a national plan to keep college prices reasonable but said little about why the cost of college has risen at a rate that surpasses the Consumer Price Index (CPI). During his multi-city tour, the president referenced the percentage increase in public college education and also criticized Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett for reducing support for colleges and universities. In so doing, he did not mention the Great Recession that resulted in reduced tax revenue and cuts to higher education. In 2009 and 2010, federal stimulus funds were used by former Gov. Ed Rendell to bolster reduced funds owing to colleges and universities in the Keystone State. When the stimulus funds ended, the new governor was faced with signicantly less nancial support for higher education. To understand this dilemma, it is important to understand what drives the cost of a college education, including tuition increases above the CPI. Education is a labor-intensive industry, and labor costs tend to rise faster than other costs. With more than 70 percent of most college budgets earmarked for salary and benets, a signicant increase in health care costs alone can put tuition hikes beyond the CPI in any one year. Colleges also do not buy goods and services in the same marketplace as consumers. The cost of scientic equipment, sophisticated computer systems and facilities maintenance, for example, are subject to price increases that all far exceed general increases in the marketbasket of goods and services that comprise the CPI. One culprit for tuition increases and one the Obama administration must share some of the blame for is the tremendous increase in regulations that are designed to enforce compliance with rigorous, and sometimes arbitrary, standards. The Association of Governing Boards, a Washington, D.C.-based group that identies trends in college governance, identied a number of new rulings. The additional regulations created additional work for colleges, thereby necessitating increased expenses on the part of colleges and universities. The U.S. Department of Education and the Justice Department have increased regulation enforcement, including the determination of how many handicapped accessible dorm rooms are available on college campuses. While no one Michael disagrees with the intent MacDowell of the regulations, the Contributing costs become signicant Columnist and sometimes unnecessary. During most of my presidency at Misericordia University, the campus had 27 rooms in residence halls for the disabled. Oftentimes, less than half those rooms were occupied by handicapped students. Despite the excess availability of these specially retrotted rooms, the university was forced to incur signicant additional costs of adding another handicapped accessible room to a home close to campus that was being converted to a residence hall. Other regulations, including extensive reports on campus crime, gainful employment and many other statistical and written reports are required annually. Together, they take thousands of hours to produce. The reports also have to be submitted in different formats to state agencies. In addition, regional accrediting agencies that accredit entire institutions and various national accrediting associations which review specic academic departments require arduous reports that are time consuming and expensive to produce. In addition, institutions of higher education are responsible for all of the costs associated with the visiting accrediting teams which often require ve or more people. To his credit, Gov. Corbett quickly recognized the cost of college was a deep concern for many Pennsylvanians, so he organized the Commission on Post-Secondary Education. Most of the suggestions made by President Obama appeared in the state commissions report long before the presidents recent media tour. The 31-member commission also recommended that the com-

Olympics create pledge to end reactor leaks


The International Olympic Committee has chosen Tokyo as the host of the 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics. It is hoped that Tokyos hosting of the once-in-four-year global games will help dispel the locked in feeling prevalent in Japanese society which has been primarily attributed to difcult economic conditions and help to enhance the level of sports in Japan. But government leaders must realize that their promise to end the leaks of radioactive water from Tokyo Electric Power Co.s stricken Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant has now become an international pledge. The government must mobilize all available resources to quickly solve the leak problem so that not only people in and around Fukushima Prefecture but also participants in the Olympic and Paralympic Games will not have to worry about radiation problems. Madrid, Istanbul and Tokyo, the candidate cities to host the 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics, all had strong and weak points. Madrid, which sought to hold the games in a less extravagant way, is suffering from Spains serious economic problems. Istanbul, which could have become the rst city in the Islamic world to host

WORLD OPINION: TOKYO OLYMPICS

the games, had its image tarnished by clashes between government forces and demonstrators earlier this year. Tokyo, whose marketing campaign stressed, Youre in safe hands with Tokyo, had the festering radiation problem. It appears that Prime Minister Shinzo Abes speech in Buenos Aires, the venue of the IOCs convention in which he stated that the situation at Fukushima No. 1 is under control and that the effect of contaminated water is fully contained within the 0.3 sq. meter harbor adjacent to the nuclear power plant helped to convince the IOC to award the games to Tokyo. Japans campaign to win the right to host the games had a very regrettable aspect to it. Princess Takamado gave a speech at the outset of Tokyos presentation in Buenos Aires, in which she thanked the international community for the help it extended to Japan in the aftermath of the 3/11 disasters. This smacks of the use of an Imperial Family member for a political purpose, and even the Imperial Household Agency expressed its discomfort. The Diet should question the government on this point and ask it to refrain from similar actions in the future.

monwealth review its many regulations and try to eliminate or consolidate those that are redundant with the federal government. The commission, upon which I served, included presidents and other decision makers from major stateowned and -related universities, private institutions, community colleges and for-prot colleges, as well as business and government leaders. Like President Obama, the commission stressed lifelong learning. We recognized that not all high school graduates should attend college immediately. Those who dont should receive encouragement to obtain an advanced degree later in life. Commissioners realized the cost of a public college education is heavily subsidized by taxpayers and that even private colleges receive some support from the government through the nancial aid their students receive and in a few other ways. Colleges that keep tuition increases relatively low should be recognized and rewarded for doing so, the commission recommended. Furthermore, the commission emphasized state support of colleges and universities should be allocated based upon important criteria, such as on-time graduation rates, student satisfaction and the employability of graduates or their success in entering graduate or professional programs. With these thoughtful and Pennsylvania-grown recommendations already on the table, it isnt difcult to see why so many in Harrisburg and Washington have trouble with the presidents plan. It is especially true when the presidents proposed program also includes arbitrary and expensive regulations that have, in the past, only served to increase college costs for the nations 21.8 million college students and 4,495 colleges and universities. It would be much sounder if the impetus for increasing higher-education effectiveness and efciency resided within the states and not in Washington.

While ofcials are correct to push standards that challenge our kids on an equal basis, leaving the nancial weight of how to reach those standards on area school districts and teachers is a heavy load. We wish the process started at the bottom and outlined the nancial burden and requirements for each school district as they relate to the eventual goals and standards. At least a best-guess, a sample spending plan or proposed nancial aid should be on offer.

The rebels you want to arm are killing Christians and children every day. If you want to know whats wrong with America, you left the most important thing out of your lives. That would be God.

Lawmakers debate whether Syria outfoxed US


LIBBY QUAID
Associated Press

WASHINGTON Lawmakers assessing the agreement on Syrias chemical weapons argued Sunday about whether President Barack Obama was outfoxed by the Russians and had lost leverage in trying to end the civil war, or whether his threat of military action propelled the breakthrough. Obama said the turn to diplomacy had laid a foundation toward political settlement of the conict. The deal announced Saturday in Geneva by U.S.

and Russian diplomat sets an ambitious timetable for elimination of Syrias chemical weapons by mid-2014, with rapid deadlines including complete inventory of its chemical arsenal within a week and immediate access by international inspectors to chemical weapons sites. The agreement came in response to an Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack near Damascus, the capital, that the U.S. believes was carried out by the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad. Republican lawmakers said that committing to

remove or destroy Syrias chemical weapons was laudable, the agreement fell short by not mandating military action should Assad fail to comply. Rep. Mike Rogers, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said the U.S. is being led by the nose by Russian President Vladimir Putin. So, if we wanted a transition with Assad, we just fired our last round, and we have taken our ability to negotiate a settlement from the White House, and weve sent it with Russia to the United Nations, Rogers, R-Mich.,

said. Thats a dangerous place for us to be if you want an overall settlement to the problems. Russia, which already has rejected three resolutions on Syria, would be sure to veto a U.N. move toward military action, and U.S. ofcials said they did not contemplate seeking such an authorization. Obama said Saturday that if diplomacy fails, the United States remains prepared to act, and Secretary of State John Kerry warned during a visit to Israel on Sunday that the threat of force is real if Assad fails

to live up to the terms of the agreement. Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the threat of force is still very much in Russian hands. Thats the most important element, is the veto piece, Corker said. So in many ways, our credibility in the region, and certainly relative to the chemical warfare, is very much driven by Russia, which has its hands rmly on the steering wheel. Democrats insisted that

while the agreement itself doesnt commit the U.S. to using force, the option of acting independently of the U.N. remains. Democratic Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said Russias primary aim has been to force the U.S. to give up that option. Russia has failed in that goal, Levin said. To Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, the threat of American military action is the only reason weve got-

ten to this point, even to this possibility. Obama said in an interview with ABCs This Week that if Syria can be stopped from using chemical weapons, then we may also have a foundation to begin the process of reaching a political settlement to civil war. The presidents interview aired Sunday but was taped Friday, before the chemical weapons deal was reached but while Secretary of State John Kerry was engaged in intense talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

Deal
From page 1A agreement, Syria will provide an inventory of its chemical arsenal within one week and hand over all of the components of its program by mid-2014. We welcome these agreements, Haidar was quoted as saying by the RIA Novosti agency. On the one hand, they will help Syrians get out of the crisis, and on the other hand, they averted a war against Syria by removing the pretext for those who wanted to unleash one. He added: These agreements are a credit to Russian diplomacy and the Russian leadership. This is a victory for Syria, achieved thanks to our Russian friends. There has been no ofcial statement from the Syrian government, and it was not clear whether Haidars comments reflected Assads thinking. The deal, hashed out in marathon negotiations between U.S. and Russian diplomats, averts American missile strikes against the Assad regime, although the Obama administration has warned that the military option remains on the table if Damascus does not comply. President Barack Obama said last week the U.S. Navy will maintain its increased presence in the eastern Mediterranean Sea to keep pressure on Syria and to be in position to respond if diplomacy fails. The threat of force is real, and the Assad regime and all those taking part need to understand that President Obama and the United States are committed to achieve this goal, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday in Jerusalem, where he briefed Israeli leaders on the agreement. He also said the agreement, if successful, will have set a marker for the standard of behavior with respect to Iran and with respect North Korea and any rogue state, (or) group that tries to reach for these kind of weapons. French President Francois Hollande said in a televised address to his country that he has not ruled out the military option, either. Otherwise, he said, there will be no pressure. The U.S. accuses the Assad government of using poison gas against rebel-held suburbs of Damascus on Aug. 21, killing more than 1,400 people. Other death toll estimates are far lower. Syria denies the allegations and blames the rebels. The suspected chemical attack raised the prospect of U.S.-led military action against Syria that the rebels hoped would tip the civil war in their favor. But as the strikes appeared imminent, the Parliament of key U.S. ally Britain voted against military action and Obama decided to ask Congress for authorization rst, delaying an armed response. Russia then oated the idea of Syria relinquishing its chemical arsenal to avert Western strikes, and the Assad regime quickly agreed. On Saturday, Moscow and Washington struck a framework agreement to secure and destroy Syrias chemical stockpile. For Syrias opposition, the deal is disappointing in many ways. It defers any U.S. action for the foreseeable future and does nothing to address the broader civil war or the use of conventional weapons, which have been responsible for the vast majority of the more than 100,000 deaths in the conict. With that in mind, the main Western-backed Syrian opposition group called Sunday for a ban on the use of ballistic missiles and air power by Assads forces in addition to the prohibition on chemical weapons. Chemical weapons attacks are a part of a bigger scheme of crimes against humanity committed by the Assad regime, including using the Syrian air forces and ballistic missiles on residential areas, the Syrian National Coalition said on its ofcial website. While a ban on air power and ballistic missiles would likely curb the bloodshed in some areas, its unclear how such a measure would be imposed or enforced. Western powers have shown little appetite for setting up a no-y zone in the country, a costly and potentially dangerous endeavor. The U.S.-Russian agreement has won broad backing around the world, including from China, which is a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council. France also welcomed the deal, but French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius cautioned during a visit Sunday in Beijing that it was only the rst stage. In Cairo, the Arab League also supported the agreement. The deal was greeted with cautious optimism in Israel, where leaders expressed satisfaction that Syria, a bitter enemy, could be stripped of dangerous weapons but also pessimism about whether Assad will comply. Standing next to Kerry in Jerusalem, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stressed his belief that the Geneva agreement would have deep repercussions for Iran, Syrias close ally. The world needs to ensure that radical regimes dont have weapons of mass destruction, because as we have learned in Syria, if rogue regimes have weapons of mass destruction, they will use them, Netanyahu said. The determination the international community shows regarding Syria will have a direct impact on the Syrian regimes patron, Iran. The U.N. said its chief chemical weapons inspector had turned over his teams report on its investigation into the suspected gas attack to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Sunday. U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said the secretarygeneral will brief a closed session of the U.N. Security Council on its contents this morning.

Properties are listed for auction after two years of nonpayment, and the owners have until the morning of the sale to pay and avoid sale. Rodgers doesnt expect a high number of properties to sell because the upset auction is a rst-stage sale, where buyers are on the hook for back taxes and other liens. Unsold properties will advance to a popular free-and-clear sale next year, when liens are forgiven. Northeast Revenue representatives say some of the properties in Thursdays sale belong to area residents who walked away from damage caused by record Susquehanna River ooding in September 2011. For example, the preliminary auction roster included Soloveys Service Station, a former gas station on River Street in Plains Township, which shut down due to ooding. The property is listed for auction at $12,353. The sales roster includes dozens of commercial properties that are vacant or house operating businesses throughout the county, including: The Ugly Mug restaurant, Main Street, White Haven, owned by Pantheon Real Estate Investments LP; $23,584 starting bid; $298,800 assessment. A commercial warehouse on state Route 315 in Plains Township owned by Highway 315 Properties Inc.; $87,132 starting bid; $875,000 assessment. A former veterinary clinic on the Pittston Bypass in Pittston Township owned by East Mountain Enterprises LLC; $58,142 starting bid; $665,000 assessment. A former bowling alley at 102 Washington St. in Nanticoke owned by Ellis Investment Inc.; $32,570 starting bid; $365,900 assessment. A brick warehouse cooperative building on Kennedy Boulevard in Pittston owned by John and Angela Cooper; $115,931 starting bid; $796,300 assessment. The shuttered Academy Super Market building, 121 Academy St., Wilkes-Barre, owned by BSE Properties LLC; $12,228 starting bid; $51,900 assessment. A retail property at 257 S. Main St., Wilkes-Barre, owned by Then You Win Inc.; $45,545 starting bid; $389,400 assessment. A motel near the former Mountain Laurel Pool on state Route 309 in Hazle Township owned by Nilkanth Inc.; $51,570 starting bid; $693,500 assessment. The former Blue Comet Diner on state Route 309 in Hazleton, owned by Louis Pantages; $18,327 starting bid; $218,800 assessment. The tentative auction inventory also includes several apartment buildings in various municipalities. One of the largest is a three-story apartment building at 89 Carey Avenue in WilkesBarre owned by Patricia Kolesar. This property, assessed at $346,300, has been listed in prior sales. Bids start at $44,000.

Spans
From page 1A a single, vital component fails. A bridge is structurally decient when it is in need of rehabilitation or replacement because at least one major component of the span has advanced deterioration or other problems that lead inspectors to deem its condition poor or worse. Engineers say the bridges are safe. And despite the ominous sounding classications, ofcials say that even bridges that are structurally decient and fracture critical are not about to collapse. The AP zeroed in on the Douglass bridge and others that t both criteria structurally decient and fracture critical. Together, they carry more than 29 million drivers a day, and many were built more than 60 years ago. Those bridges are located in all 50 states, plus Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia, and include the Brooklyn Bridge in New York, a bridge on the New Jersey highway that leads to the Lincoln Tunnel, and the Main Avenue Bridge in Cleveland. The number of bridges nationwide that are both structurally decient and fracture critical has been fairly constant for a number of years, experts say. But both lists uctuate frequently, especially at the state level, since repairs can move a bridge out of the decient categories while spans that grow more dilapidated can be put on the lists. There are occasional data-entry errors. There also is considerable lag time between when state transportation ofcials report data to the federal government and when updates are made to the National Bridge Inventory. Many fracture critical bridges were erected in the 1950s to 1970s during construction of the interstate highway system because they were relatively cheap and easy to build. Now they have exceeded their designed life expectancy but are still carrying trafc often more cars and trucks than they were originally expected to handle. The Interstate 5 bridge in Washington state that collapsed in May was fracture critical. Cities and states would like to replace the aging and vulnerable bridges, but few have the money; nationally, it is a multibillion-dollar problem. As a result, highway engineers are juggling repairs and retrots in an effort to stay ahead of the deterioration. There are thousands of inspectors across the country in the eld every day to determine the safety of the nations bridges, Victor Mendez, head of the Federal Highway Administration, said in a statement. If a bridge is found to be unsafe, immediate action is taken. At the same time, all that is required to cause a fracture critical bridge to collapse is a single unanticipated event that damages a critical portion of the structure. Its kind of like trying to predict where an earthquake is going to hit or where a tornado is going to touch down, said Kelley Rehm, bridges program manager for the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Ofcials.

Obamacare
From page 1A Dr. Chris Lillis, a primary care physician in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I try to speak truth from the exam room, but I think sometimes fear dominates. Next month, roughly 50 million Medicare beneficiaries will get a handbook in the mail with a prominent Q&A that stresses Medicare benets arent changing. Federal health ofcials have also updated their training for Medicare counselors, and are prepping their Medicare call center and website. We want to reassure Medicare beneciaries that they are already covered, their benets arent changing, and the marketplace doesnt require them to do anything different, said Julie Bataille, spokeswoman for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. them to the Medicare line. Bob Roza attended several meetings trying to gure out exactly what the Affordable Care Act means for him and his 69-year-old wife Gail, who has diabetes. At that time, I didnt know if Medicare would be secondary to some Affordable Care Act option. It was just a myriad of concerns and not knowing, said the 72-year-old Roza, a retiree who lives in Oakdale, Calif., and is recovering from hip replacement surgery earlier this year. He now knows that his Medicare coverage wont change, but says hes now worried about the impact on the $614 a month he pays for Medicare supplemental insurance. Federal health ofcials said seniors will not be able to purchase Medicare sup plemental insurance or Part D drug plans through the state exchanges.

failed to qualify in last weeks scandal-plagued race at Richmond. I didnt have to make that decision, but I sure felt like it was obvious that (Gordon) got taken out by a manipulation instead of getting beat, Hendrick said Sunday. I think the world knew it and they had to do what they did. NASCAR chairman Brian France made the decision to restore Gordon to the season-ending playoff, announcing it Friday along with a stern warning that the organization wouldnt tolerate any more attempts to manipulate the outcome of races. It came at the end of a frenetic week when NASCARs credibility was on the line. Ofcials were forced to take a second look at the results from last weeks race at Richmond once they learned Clint Bowyer deliberately spun to bring out a caution to stop leader Ryan Newman from winning. A win by Newman would have eliminated Martin Truex Jr., Bowyers teammate at Michael Waltrip Racing, from a Chase berth. Once ofcials dug deeper, however, their investigation found at three separate attempts to manipulate the race. NASCAR could not prove the teams were working together, although Gordon wound up being clearly disadvantaged by See NASCAR | 4B

PHILADELPHIA That high-octane, ball-control offense belonged to the San Diego Chargers. Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes to Eddie Royal, and Nick Novak kicked a 46-yard field goal with 7 seconds left to lead the Chargers past the Philadelphia Eagles 33-30 on Sunday, spoiling Chip Kellys home debut. On Phillys turf, the Chargers (1-1) looked more like the Eagles ideal offense. They racked up 539 yards, held the ball for 40:17 and sped things up. We kind of no-huddled the no-huddlers, Rivers said. We had our own rhythm of no-huddle going. It was a heck of a team win. Michael Vick threw for a career-best 428 yards and two touchdowns and ran for a score. But a porous Eagles defense couldnt stop Rivers all day. He finished 36 of 47 for 419 yards, and the Chargers punted only once. They fumbled twice inside Philadelphias 10 in the first half. The teams combined for 1,150 total yards. The Chargers got good news after the game when they learned receiver Malcom

Floyd was fine after leaving on a stretcher with a neck injury on a hard hit by DeMeco Ryans and Nate Allen on the first play from scrimmage after halftime. All the tests right now look good, so its great for the organization to go out and get a win for Malcom, coach Mike McCoy said. Following a dynamic 33-27 victory over Washington last Monday, the Eagles (1-1) needed more time to get their uptempo offense going against San Diego. They crammed 53 plays into the first half against the Redskins, took a 26-point lead in the third quarter and held on to beat the defending NFC East champs. But it was the Chargers who moved the ball seemingly at will in the first half. Those two turnovers were costly, however, and the Eagles had a chance to win at the end. It was big for our offense to just convert on third down, trying to keep their fast-paced offense off the field, knowing how explosive they were, Royal said. The Eagles had a first down at the Chargers 10 before Vick was shaken up on an incomplete pass. Nick Foles came in and threw another incompletion before Vick returned and misfired on a throw. Alex Henery kicked a tying 32-yard field goal that left Rivers plenty of time to

answer. It doesnt matter how we score as long as we score, Kelly said. But I still think we left too many opportunities offensively out there. Rivers quickly led the Chargers down the field with less than two minutes left, and Novak nailed his fourth field goal to win it. Last week, we didnt finish the game, McCoy said about blowing a 21-point lead in a 31-28 loss to Houston. We made too many mistakes. Today, we finished. The Eagles took a 27-23 lead when Vick ran in from the 2, but the defense couldnt hold it. Henery allowed the ball to slip through his hands when Fozzy Whittaker fumbled on the kick return and the Chargers started at the Eagles 39. A few plays later, Rivers tossed a 15-yard TD pass to Royal for a 30-27 lead. DeSean Jackson had 193 yards receiving, including a 61-yard TD, for the Eagles. LeSean McCoy had a career-high 114 yards receiving. We made our share of plays today and I think were going to get better, Vick said. Antonio Gates led the Chargers with 124 yards receiving, Floyd had 102 and See EAGLES | 4B

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Unless they meet again in the postseason, this was the last Manning Bowl. No less an authority than Peyton Manning says so, and why not: Peyton is 3-0 against younger brother Eli in regular-season games after Denvers 41-23 rout Sunday of the New York Giants. I think both of us are glad that its over with, Peyton said after throwing for two touchdowns. Postseason is one thing, but I dont think Ill make it to the next regular season (meeting, in four years). I think thisll be the end of it. So Ill be happy about that. And the family will. Big brother didnt need another record-tying seven touchdown passes. He got this win with a huge boost from Knowshon Moreno, who rushed for two touchdowns and 93 yards on just 13 carries. Denver (2-0), which has won 13 straight regularseason games, ran for 109 yards altogether. With Manning finding Wes Welker and Julius Thomas for touchdowns, and Moreno scoring on sprints down the right side, Denver dominated much of the matchup between Super Bowl MVP quarterbacks; Eli has won two titles, Peyton one. The older Mannings first two victories against his sibling came when Peyton was with the Colts. For me, its a strange feeling, Peyton said. Its not quite as enjoyable as if you beat somebody else. Peyton finished 30 of 43 for 307 yards with no interceptions. Eli was 28 of 39 for 362 yards, but was picked off four times; he had 15 interceptions all of last season and has seven already this year. After the rout, the brothers shared a very short handshake while surrounded by a mob of photographers and TV cameras. They had exchanged their greetings before the kickoff. We chatted for 10 minutes, nothing specific, just brotherly talk, Eli said. After that, there wasnt a whole lot of brotherly interaction. The Giants also allowed Trindon Hollidays spectacular 81-yard punt return for a touchdown, the first such score in the league this season. Peyton, who became the third player over 60,000 career yards passing on Denvers opening drive, connected with a wide-open Welker for a 2-yard score that gave the Broncos a 17-9 lead. But little brother took New York 81 yards in response, although the drive was built more on Broncos blunders four penalties, including two for pass interference than Manning magic. There was plenty of Moreno magic on Denvers next series, when he again surged around right end See BRONCOS | 5B

Opportunity knocks for Zolnierczyk

To be sure, this isnt exactly a low point for Penn State. Not after the last two years. If theres one thing people around here should know about our players, its that theyve been through a lot worse than losing to Central Florida, defensive coordinator John Butler said. Their condence I think is going to be shaken

like it always is after a loss, but theyll come back to the drawing board Monday and correct what weve got to correct. I have no concern about that. But theres still plenty for the Nittany Lions to evaluate after their 34-31 loss to UCF on Saturday. From penalties, to personnel to philosophy, the AP photo Lions have one game and Central florida wide receiver Josh Reese (19) scores past a diving

Coming to a team loaded with bigname goal scorers and point producers, theres plenty of opportunity for a player like Harry Zolnierczyk. Zolnierzcyk was acquired by Pittsburgh in the offseason in a trade for defenseman Alex Grant. He split last season between Norfolk and Adirondack in the AHL, and the Philadelphia Flyers. Soon after the trade, Pittsburgh signed the 25-year-old Zolnierczyk to a oneyear, two-way contract. Coming to a team like Pittsburgh that is loaded with offensive talent, Zolnierczyk sees plenty of opportunity Penn State linebacker glenn Carson (40) during the third quarter for players who like to bang, agitate and play physical on one of the bottom two See LIONS | 6B Saturday in State College.

lines. Your top two lines here are arguably the six best players in the league, he said. For guys like myself agitators, bangers and ghters, theyre needed to kind of complete the team. I know theres an opportunity for me here in the bottom six, and ultimately Im looking to take one of those spots. Last season, Zolnierczyk posted 68 penalty minutes in 61 AHL games and a whopping 36 PIMs in seven games with the Flyers. A physical third or fourth line player is a role that Zolnierczyk enjoys and he has no qualms about playing a little bit chippy. Love it. I wouldnt change it for anything, he said.

Mayweather dominant in title defense


AP Boxing Writer

TIM DAHLBERG

LAS VEGAS Canelo Alvarez proved nothing more than easy money for Floyd Mayweather Jr. Mayweather turned one of the richest ghts ever into just another $41.5 million payday Saturday night, dominating Alvarez from the opening bell and winning a majority decision in a masterful performance that left no doubt who the best ghter of his era is. Fighting off his shortest layoff in years, Mayweather was sharp, efcient and sometimes brutal in dismantling an unbeaten ghter who was bigger and was supposed to punch harder. He frustrated Alvarez early, pounded him with big right hands in the middle rounds, and made him look just like he said he would like any other opponent. Mayweather was favored 117-

111 and 116-112 on two ringside scorecards while a third inexplicably had the ght 114-114. The Associated Press scored it 119109 for Mayweather. I just listened to my corner, listened to my dad, Mayweather said. My dad had a brilliant game plan, and I went out there and got the job done. Mayweather remained unbeaten in 45 ghts and added another piece of the junior middleweight title to his collection in a ght that was fought at a 152-pound limit. Alvarez weighed in at that weight, but was an unofcial 165 pounds when he got into the ring while Mayweather, who weighed in at 150 1/2 pounds, was an even 150. The extra weight did Alvarez no good and the punching power that brought him 30 knockouts in 43 ghts wasnt a help either. The Mexican star was seldom able to land a solid

punch, with most of his punches either missing or glancing off of Mayweather. No doubt hes a great ghter, a very intelligent ghter, Alvarez said. There was no solution for him.

When it was over, Mayweather didnt even celebrate, walking over to a corner to look at the crowd. Just another payday, just another win for Money May. The only surprise came when it was announced the decision

wasnt unanimous, with judge C.J. Ross scoring it even. I cant control what the judges do, Mayweather said. Ringside punch stats showed Mayweather dominance, crediting him with landing 232 of 505 punches to 117 of 526 for Alvarez. The sellout crowd of 16,746 at the MGM Grand on Mexican Independence weekend tried its best to urge Alvarez (42-1-1) on, but the cheers of Canelo! Canelo! were faint and wistful by the late rounds. Mayweather was so much in charge that the only question was whether the ringside judges would allow him to pitch a shutout. They didnt, but that was the only disappointment on a night that Mayweather solidied his claim to being one of the best ever and padded his bank account in a way no other ghter has ever done.

The ght was one of the richest ever if not the richest ever with a live gate of $20 million and at least another $100 million from pay-per-view. Tickets were so hot that celebrities were actually offering to buy them and some tickets were being offered online for as much as $29,000. Mayweather was the big beneciary of that, making a guaranteed $41.5 million to $5 million for Alvarez. Add in his purse from his win over Robert Guererro in May and Mayweather made $73 million in two ghts easily making him the highest-paid athlete in the country. Alvarez had some star power himself, with his red hair, good lucks and big punching power winning over most of his native Mexico. The ght was on free TV in Mexico, and some estimates were that 70 million people would watch.

NASCAR
From page 1B the schemes, missing the nal qualifying spot by one place. Gordon, a four-time champion, wasnt eligible for either of the two wild-card spots. That prompted France to step in. There was one team, one driver, who was directly impacted negatively, as Brian said, by all this, and we decided that we were going to do something that was unprecedented, NASCAR President Mike Helton said on ESPN before Sundays race. Hendrick said it was the right call. Its something you shoot for the whole year. We had all four AP photo drivers in last year and we wantVolunteers Kurt Galisdorfer, bottom, and Heather Hemming remove ed to do it this year, Hendrick said. His team had already qualied ve-time champion Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne and and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Everybody is happy now, he added. Not quite everybody. France issued unprecedented penalties earlier in the week, ning Michael Waltrip Racing a total of $300,000 and suspending team general manager Ty Norris indenitely. Yet cutting deals to help teammates grab points or move up in the standings has been part of NASCAR since its inception. Teams and drivers have been trying to gure out where the line between compeitition and cooperation lies, and Hendrick believes now they have an example to base their decisions on. I think its something thats going to do us all a lot of good, he said. But Hendrick also acknowledged it took a long, often emotional detour to get there. Ive never been to the hauler at the end of the race and had any decision reversed, he recalled. That is the way its been for 30-plus years. I was just disgusted and left (Richmond). I didnt hang around. I got out of there as soon as it was over because it wouldnt have done any good. NASCAR also tweaked its restart rules Sunday and will now allow the second-place driver to beat the leader to the start-nish line after confusion has reigned all season. The change was announced in the pre-race driver meeting at Chicagoland Speedway, where NASCAR has been dealing with the fallout from a manipulated race at Richmond last week. Overshadowed in the scandal was yet another restart in which many fans felt NASCAR missed a call when it failed to penalize Carl Edwards for jumping the nal restart. Edwards clearly beat leader Paul Menard to the line, wasnt penalized and won the race. NASCAR said Menard spun his tires. Going forward, the leader controls the start in the restart zone. But once the green ag waves, the second-place car can beat the leader to the line, allowing NASCAR to take race control out of the equation.

Rain drives Furyks quest past weekend


The Associated Press

LAKE FOREST, Ill. Jim Furyk will have to wait one more day to try to end three years without a PGA Tour victory. The nal round of the BMW Championship was suspended Sunday because of steady rain that left too much water on Conway Farms. Furyk, who has a oneshot lead over Steve Stricker, was still about two hours away from even teeing off. The bad news obviously, Im anxious to get out there and play, as is everyone else, Furyk said. But the good news is no one wants to go out and play in this and slop it around in bad weather on a golf course where were playing the ball down and its probably a little too wet out there. Rory McIlroy found one small consolation to the end of his PGA Tour season he was one of six players who nished. McIlroy had yet another double bogey thats 12 double bogeys and a triple bogey in three FedEx Cup playoff events but holed out from 164 yards for eagle on the 12th hole and had his second straight 68. It was the rst time he had back-to-back rounds in the 60s in the same tournament this year on the PGA Tour. Furyk was at 13-under 200 and in the nal group with Stricker. Brandt Snedeker was two shots behind at 202, followed by Zach Johnson at 203 and Tiger Woods at 204. Woods was penalized two shots on Friday when his ball moved as he was removing a small branch next to it behind the rst green. Dustin Johnson closed with a 72 and had to wait to make sure no one bumped him out of the top 30 in the FedEx Cup, which would keep him from the Tour Championship. Johnson tried to hit 3-wood into the par-5 18th green and produced two splashes one from water getting between the club face and the ball,

the other when the ball came down well short and into a creek. Slugger White, the vice president of rules and competition for the PGA Tour, said the forecast was for a halfinch of rain over six hours, which would not have been enough for water to accumulate. Instead, there was an inch of rain and so much water that there would have been no place to take relief from casual water. The problem holes were Nos. 3, 9, 10 and 12. Casual water was going to take us to where we couldnt play, White said. Pete G.

Rodgers goes wild to power Packers


The Associated Press

GREEN BAY, Wis. Aaron Rodgers threw for a career-high 480 yards and four touchdowns and Green Bay used a big rst half to win its home opener as the Packers defeated the Washington Redskins 38-20 on Sunday. Redskins quarterback Robert Grifn III threw for 320 yards and three secondhalf touchdowns. Pierre Garcon had 143 yards receiving and a touchdown. But it was too little, too late after Washington (0-2) fell short again after being outplayed early for a second straight week. James Jones had a careerhigh 11 catches for 178 yards. James Starks ran for 132 yards and a touchdown. Green Bay (1-1) built a 24-0 lead by halftime and never looked back.

version tied it at 24-24 with less than two minutes left. Houston forced a punt and got within eld goal range after that. But Randy Bullocks 46-yard eld goal attempt bounced off the left upright to force overtime. It was his third miss of the day.
Bills 24, Panthers 23

CHICAGO Jay Cutler threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Martellus Bennett with 10 seconds left. Minnesotas Blair Walsh had just kicked a 22-yard eld goal with 3:15 remaining when Chicago took over at its 34. Cutler, who led the Bears back from an 11-point decit in a season-opening win over Cincinnati, struck again. A 23-yard pass to Bennett along the sideline put the ball on the 16. Cutler then spiked the ball before connecting with Bennett in the front corner of the end zone. Chicago remained unbeaten under new coach Marc Trestman despite committing four turnovers. Cutler completed 28 of 39 passes for 290 yards and three touchdowns. But he was also intercepted twice and got stripped by Jared Allen on a sack, leading to a 61-yard touchdown return for Brian Robison in the second quarter.
Chiefs 17, Cowboys 16

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. Rookie EJ Manuel hit Stevie Johnson for a 2-yard touchdown pass with 2 seconds left. The touchdown capped a nine-play, 80-yard drive in which the rst-round draft pick completed 6 of 8 attempts for 51 yards. Manuel also got help on third-and-6 from Carolinas 29, when Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly was penalized for pass interference with 14 seconds left. Two plays later, Manuel found Johnson alone in the left corner as Buffalo (1-1) bounced back from a 23-21 season-opening loss to New England. The Panthers (0-2) lost yet another close game. They were coming off a 12-7 loss to Seattle last week and have now dropped to 2-14 in games decided by 7 points or less in two-plus seasons under coach Ron Rivera.

Rashard Mendenhalls 1-yard touchdown run with 1:59 to play in Bruce Arians home debut as Cardinals coach. Jay Feely kicked four eld goals and Carson Palmer threw a 36-yard touchdown pass to rookie Andre Ellington for Arizona (1-1). Ellington also had a 16-yard catch to start the deciding drive. Matthew Stafford connected with Calvin Johnson on touchdown plays of 72 and 3 yards, and DeAndre Levy returned an interception 66 yards for a score for Detroit (1-1), which led 21-13 midway through the third quarter. Arizonas Larry Fitzgerald played despite a sore hamstring but was unable to nish the contest. Detroits Reggie Bush injured his left knee in the rst half and played only briey in the second.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Alex Smith threw for 223 yards and two touchdowns, and the Kansas City defense held when it needed to in the fourth quarter. Jamaal Charles ran for 55 yards and caught a touchdown pass for the Chiefs, who made new coach Andy Reid a winner in his home debut. Dwayne Bowes touchdown catch in the third quarter and Ryan Succops 40-yard eld goal early in the fourth gave the Chiefs a 17-13 lead. The Cowboys (1-1) answered with a deep march into Kansas City territory but had to settle for Dan Baileys 53-yard eld goal with 3:55 left.

INDIANAPOLIS Ryan Tannehill threw for 319 yards and one touchdown, and the Dolphins defense held off yet another Colts comeback bid. Charles Clay gave Miami the lead for good with a 1-yard TD run late in the third quarter. The Dolphins are 2-0 for only the second time since 2004. Indianapolis (1-1) lost at home for the rst time in 12 months and only the second time in Andrew Lucks brief NFL career. Luck had the Colts positioned to rally yet again after reaching the Miami 23-yard line with 1:45 left in the game. But this time, Luck threw three straight incompletions and then could not evade the Dolphins pass rush on fourth down, allowing Miami to run out the clock. ATLANTA Julio Jones hauled in 11 passes for 182 yards, including an 81-yard touchdown, and Atlanta held on for its rst win of the season. Matt Ryan threw for 374 yards and two scores despite taking quite a beating behind the Falcons shaky offense line. Jason Snelling clinched it for the Falcons (1-1) with an 11-yard touchdown run with 6:18 remaining Atlantas longest play of the day on the ground. The Rams (1-1) fell behind 21-0 when Osi Umenyiora returned an interception 68 yards for a touchdown early in the second quarter. Atlanta led 24-3 at halftime before St Louis fought back on a pair of short touchdown passes by Sam Bradford. Bradford nished with 352 yards and three TDs.

BALTIMORE Baltimore sacked Brandon Weeden ve times before nally knocking him out of the game in the fourth quarter. After yielding 49 points in a season-opening loss at Denver, Baltimores defense came up with a redemptive performance against the Browns (0-2). Cleveland failed to score in the second half and managed only 85 yards over the nal 30 minutes. Down 6-0 at halftime, the Ravens (1-1) took the lead on a 5-yard run by Bernard Pierce with 5:13 left in the third quarter. Baltimore added a touchdown with 8:77 remaining on a 5-yard pass from Joe Flacco to rookie Marlon Brown.

Broncos
From page 1B to almost duplicate his earlier 20-yard scoring run with a 25-yarder. Considered a backup heading toward the season, New Jersey native Moreno was virtually the entire running game for the Broncos on Sunday and he made the difference. I feel the same every game, always amped up and real emotional, he said. You just got to go out and play. Peyton Manning also hit Thomas for an 11-yard score as Denver pulled away in the second half after leading 10-9 at halftime. DaRel Scott took a short pass 23 yards for a TD for New York to conclude the Giants scoring. Its very disappointing, frustrating the whole point is we have to hang in there, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. We have 14 games to go. We have been 0-2 before. We dug ourselves into a hole before and been able to ght our way out of it. When we did it was with team, but the performance level has to come up. The sloppy rst half was marred by eight dropped passes on both sides, including three by Welker. The biggest drop, though, came on a running play when rookie Montee Ball fumbled at the New York 3 to ruin Denvers drive from its 7 on the opening series. Eli Manning then led his team 62 yards 51 on a pass to Victor Cruz and Josh Brown made a 36-yard eld goal. Brown added kicks of 24 and 41 yards in the rst half. Denvers rst touchdown came on Morenos 20-yard sprint around right end early in the second quarter, and Matt Prater made a 42-yard eld goal 47 seconds before halftime. He added a 47-yarder 2:38 from the end.

Opportunity
From page 1B But in Pittsburghs training camp, it can be tough for a physical player to show his physical side without hurting a teammate. Thats why Zolnierczyk is eager to see some action in at least one of Pittsburghs six exhibition games. You have your practices and scrimmages and I still try to take the body as much as I can, but when the puck drops for an exhibition game, thats when things really matter, he said. Prior to joining the Pittsburgh organization, Zolnierczyk spent the rst three seasons of his pro career with the Philadelphia organization. He appeared in 44 games with the Flyers, posting three goals and 71 penalty minutes. Late in the season, Philadelphia traded Zolnierczyk to Anaheim, marking his rst time with a new organization. It was a trying time for Zolnierczyk, who was hoping for an NHL shot with his new club. It was a little bit frustrating because the trade came and I was sent down (to Norfolk) the same day, he said. To not get an opportunity to prove yourself with the big club was disappointing. But I was extremely happy about the trade to Pittsburgh this summer. Ive heard great things about this organization and its a great t for a player such as myself. A place where there may be a place on the NHL roster for Zolnierczyks physical style, and a chance to regain the stability he had during his time with Philadelphia. You build your resume when youre with an organization and that sticks with you, Zolnierczyk said. But this is a fresh start here and Im looking forward to building a reputation and making it stick.

lions
From page 1B an off week to patch things up before starting Big Ten play. One of the most glaring issues Saturday was the sheer number of missed tackles. It stands to reason that the Lions suffer a bit in this area because theyre forced to keep away from full-contact in practice, going with thud drills where ballcarriers arent taken to the ground. Everyone wants to say because we dont tackle in practice we wont tackle as well in games, but I dont know about that, Butler said initially. Pressed about it further, Butler said criticism of thud drills when it comes to improving tackling was fair and that they can be a detriment in that regard. But given the Lions precarious scholarship situation with the NCAA sanctions, the team just cant afford to risk injuries during the week. Thats the decision we have to make when you only have 62 (healthy) scholarship players, Butler said. Youve got to do your best to give what you have to the eld (on Saturdays). You dont want to take it to 57 because youre tackling in practice. It will be a challenge for Butler and the rest of the defensive staff to nd ways to improve tackling technique without full-contact demonstrations. Beyond that, the Lions changed things up late in Saturdays loss in the secondary. UCF seemed to pick on sophomore corner Trevor Williams, and by midway through the fourth quarter Williams found himself on the sideline. Jordan Lucas swapped sides to take over as the eld corner with Adrian Amos moving up from safety to play boundary corner. Ryan Keiser entered to play safety back with Malcolm Willis. Lions coach Bill OBrien said after the game he thought there may have been an injury that led to that switchup, but Butler indicated otherwise. That was just a coachs decision just to try to get a little more experience, Butler said. We felt like they were throwing the ball successfully to the eld. So we just moved Jordan to the eld and put Adrian back at the boundary. Much of the focus will understandably be on the defense this week, but the Lions also have some nagging issues elsewhere to address. Mental errors begin adding up in a three-point loss. Before Sam Ficken lined up for his 47-yard eld goal in the second quarter, the Lions had to burn a timeout because they had just 10 players on the eld. They needed that timeout badly after Malcolm Willis gave them the ball back for a two-minute drill with an interception. With Penn State driving into eld goal range, Christian Hackenberg took an illadvised sack on second down, and without a timeout, the Lions had to spike the ball on third to set up a 57-yard attempt for Ficken instead of something more manageable. Fickens kick was on the mark but short. I was pretty condent, but unfortunately on that 57-yarder I got a little under the ball and it ended up being a yard or two short, Ficken said. I think if the kicks were switched they both would have been good. The direction was good, the hold and snap was good. I just got under it a little bit.

TEMPE, Ariz. Joel Stave stumbled as he kneeled, plopped the ball on the turf and hopped up like he had just completed a magic act. The illusion left everyone confused. Trying to set his team up for a game-winning eld goal, Wisconsins quarterback instead triggered a wave of confusion that lingered long after Arizona States 32-30 win over the 20th-ranked Badgers Saturday night. Ive seen some things tonight I havent seen, Arizona State coach Todd Graham said after the game. Not many people have. The nal sequence was set up when Wisconsin, after forcing Arizona State to punt, got the ball at its own 17-yard line with 1:36 left. Trailing by two, the Badgers quickly moved down the eld, reaching the Sun Devils 13 with 18 seconds left. Hoping to set up kicker Kyle French in the middle of the eld for a potential game-winning eld goal, Wisconsin called for Stave run left from the right hash mark and take a knee, a play the Badgers had practiced numerous times. But as Stave went to kneel, he was clipped by one of his lineman and went down a bit awkwardly as he emphatically placed the ball on

the 15-yard line. Stave hopped up quickly and players from both teams stood around for a few seconds, trying to gure out what happened. Stave checked with the referee to make sure the play was dead, but Arizona States players piled on the ball, thinking it was a fumble. Realizing the clock was still running, the Badgers tried to line up with 2 seconds left to spike the ball, but couldnt get a play off in time. After gathering briey on the eld, the ofcials trotted off past Stave, Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen and the rest of the stunned Badgers. It was a shame it went down the way it went down at the end and

I dont know how that happens. The play appeared to be called correctly. Its what happened after that may be called into question. Though the Sun Devils thought Staves knee never hit the ground, replays showed it briey touching the turf. The ofcials saw it and pointed to the ground to signal the play was dead, but Arizona States players thought it was a fumble and

frantically dove on the ball, costing Wisconsin precious seconds. Even after the Sun Devils were pulled off the ball, one of the ofcials briey held the Badgers at the line of scrimmage before they could snap the ball, costing them even more time. After the play, Stave tried to grab one of the ofcials running off the eld, but he kept going, and Andersen said he got no response after asking for an explanation. I dont know where it goes, Andersen said. Well just have to see. Id like to get an explanation. I wish I could have got one out there but I didnt. College football has seen its share of strange nishes. In 1990, Colorado beat Missouri in the Fifth Down Game, scoring the winning touchdown after the ofcials didnt notice the down markers on the sidelines hadnt been changed and allowed the Buffaloes an extra play after they spiked the ball on fourth down. Appalachian State won a bizarre one in 2002, using an interception on a 2-point conversion and a lateral on the return to beat Furman 16-15. The most famous and bizarre nish came in the Big Game between Stanford and California in 1982, when the Bears had ve laterals and a run through Stanfords band into the end zone for the winning score on the nal kickoff.

The long-lasting effect of the Wyoming Valley Conferences switch to the fall season continued over the weekend when MMI Prep decided to fold its program after four losses to start its season, MMI Prep coach Nino Campagna conrmed. The Preppers began the year with 13 players. Injuries and other losses cut the MMI Prep roster to nine girls, forcing them to start every game two-players down. Unfortunately, we couldnt get any more kids, Campagna said. Its a small school. We couldnt get any more commitments. We had 13 when we started. We ended up with nine. MMI Prep had scored two goals while allowing 51 goals through four games. Joey Kress and Mikyla Dave scored both of the Prepper goals in a loss to Pittston Area. Campagna said it was a difcult decision to make, despite trying every feasible avenue to recruit more players. Most of the players didnt take it very well, he said. They were really upset that we couldnt nish out the season. Its hard to get girls to play here. Almost every girl at that school already plays a sport. MMI Prep joins GAR as the second school in as many years to cut its girls soccer program since the PIAA eliminated spring

girls soccer. Campagna said he ultimately blames the season change as the reason for the the programs demise. Since they moved the sport to the fall, everyone got hurt, Campagna said. Its been especially hard on the smaller schools that have to compete with eld hockey. You see that with what has happened in the past few years. You see that with some of the smaller schools, like Meyers and Wyoming Seminary, in the standings. District 2 girls soccer chair Vito Quaglia was unable able to be reached for comment. If the past is precedent, all results over MMI Prep and its subsequent statistics, will not be carried over in district and conference standings; however, Hanover Area, Pittston Area, Berwick and Tunkhannocks victories over MMI Prep will be considered non-league games.
Early looks

Perhaps the most surprising team out of the gate has been Hanover Area. The Hawkeyes generated just four wins a year ago and won its rst three games four including the MMI Prep win of the season. Hanover Area outscored its opponents by only six goals (9-3) and was in a scoreless tie through 22 minutes with Pittston Area before Thursdays rain postponed the game. Larissa Bannon leads the Hawkeyes with eight points on three goals and two

assists. Amelia Hossage notched three goals in as many games. The leagues top two teams from a year ago Berwick and Dallas are again at the top of the standings and neither have allowed a goal so far this season. Berwick hasnt skipped a beat with the graduation of much of its defense, posting shutouts over Meyers, Nanticoke and Tunkhannock. Dallas (5-0) has already shut out four of the teams best teams with clean sheets over Wyoming Valley West, Coughlin, Pittston Area and Holy Redeemer. Six of the Mountaineers 21 goals have both come from Ashley Strazdus and Talia Szatkowski. The rest of the pack have shown that the race for the district playoff spots will be a tight battle.

LOS ANGELES Queen Latifah knows a reliable stress reliever to cope with the pressures of launching a daytime show. I have a drum set in my dressing room, and I go in there and play for a few minutes to relax. They can forget about it being quiet around here Im going to bang my drums, said the singer-songwriter and actress, whos adding the job of host to her resume. With todays debut of the syndicated The Queen Latifah Show (check local listings for station, time), she intends to make noise in the competitive realm of daytime TV. Im naturally a bit edgier than typical daytime, but I kind of want to push things a little bit further, as far as I can respectfully, within the daytime space, Latifah said. I want more out of daytime TV. I want more choices, I want more heart, more humor. She also wants more music, betting someone who broke ground as a female rapper before expanding into other genres. Her wish list is varied and includes Coldplay and Kings of Leon, and she already has Alicia Keys and Plain White Ts lead singer Tom Higgenson booked for her rst week. Other inaugural guests include John Travolta, Sharon Stone, Jamie Foxx, Jake Gyllenhaal and Lisa Kudrow. Also invited are regular people who do

amazing things that are inspirational and who deserve to share the stage with celebrities, Latifah said. As much bad news as we see every day, its good to see people out there doing positive things that give you hope. Im an optimist, she said. Todays show will include a performance by preteen actress-singer Willow Smith, with dad Will Smith dropping in Tuesday. If the schedule seems a tad Smith family

heavy, its with good reason: Latifah and Smith go way back, and he and wife Jada Pinkett Smith are among the producers of Latifahs new venture. Shes just fantastic, Pinkett Smith told reporters in August. I just feel like every (day), you have the opportunity to kick it with your girlfriend, Queen Latifah. Latifah, 43, would have liked such a team for her rst try as a talk-show host. The program had an abbreviated run from

1999-2001 but pointed her in the right direction for her new effort from Sony Pictures Television. I learned I really have to be true to myself. I want to go out there and do something that feels like me every day and is something Im comfortable with and excited about, Latifah said. Oprah Winfreys 2011 departure from daytime opened the oodgates for new shows, but Latifah said she was glad to hold off on joining the fray and

isnt presenting herself as a successor: She wants to have Winfrey on as a guest to demonstrate that I am the current Latifah and she is the current Oprah, she said, wryly. Shes hopeful fans of her music and her lms, including Chicago and The Secret Life of Bees, will be part of her audience. But they have many choices, whether celebrity-driven talk shows or alternatives including Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz. Shes coming on at a time when its very competitive, but she brings the name recognition and the support of a major studio to launch her show, said Bill Carroll, a daytime TV expert for Katz Media. Whether her show can topple reigning queen Ellen DeGeneres or best successful newcomers Katie Couric and Steve Harvey isnt the point: Whats key is if it betters the ratings of the program it replaced in each market and at least matches the numbers of the one that precedes it, Carroll said. The Queen Latifah Show will air on CBS owned-and-operated stations in major markets and on different channels elsewhere in the country; timing also will vary. In New York, for instance, it comes on in the morning against a formidable eld that includes Today and Live with Kelly and Michael. While Latifah is eager to connect with viewers, she doesnt think that necessarily includes putting her personal life on display nearly heretical, since its common for daytime talk-show hosts to use their off-camera world for fodder. Im not trying to throw myself out there to get ratings. Im really more interested in building something thats entertaining to people, she said. Ive never had to just share everything about my personal life to entertain people. Whatever she might discuss on-air will be a natural thing and depends on how I build the rapport with my audience, Latifah added.

Boyfriends condolences to old friend would be better late than never


Dear Abby: My boyfriend of four years, Joey, is a kind and loving person. Recently the father of one of his close childhood friends died. We live a plane ride away, and Joey could not get time off work to attend the services. I assumed Joey called his friend and family to extend his sympathies. During our last visit home, I found out he had not reached out to them. Im upset that he didnt, and I know the friend was deeply hurt by it. At this point, what can Joey do to make things right? Why wouldnt he make the call in the first place? Smoothing It Over in San Antonio

DEAR ABBY
ADVICE Dear Smoothing It Over: Joey may not have reached out because he didnt know what to do, which would have been to call and extend his condolences or send a card or handwritten note. He may have procrastinated because he didnt know what to say. The way to fix this would be for Joey to pick up the phone, apologize to his friend for not calling sooner, and confess that he knows he was wrong for not doing so. All he needs to say after that is that hes sorry for his friends loss, which he knows must have been painful. Then he should be quiet and listen.

Dear Abby: My daughter-in-law allows her 2-year-old daughter to run around naked before bath time and at other times. They have been visiting us, and there are also other people in the house and yard. The childs mom tells her to say, Look at these buns! and laughs. We feel this is inappropriate and dangerous. How can we get through to her that its not right? Concerned Grandma in Eau Claire, Wis. Dear Grandma: While I dont think that allowing a child to run around nude at home is dangerous, I do agree that encouraging a child to run naked and say, Look at these buns! is unwise. The response it brings teaches the little girl that this is a way to get

attention. While this may be amusing at 2, it is setting a pattern that will attract the wrong kind of attention when she is 4, 5 or 6. Envision her mooning the first-grade class! Perhaps you can make your daughter-in-law understand by showing her this column. I certainly hope so. Dear Abby: I am an asexual college student with a question about dating. When should I tell someone that Im asexual? Im not really out mostly because I dont feel the need to talk about it but Im not ashamed of it, either. What do you think? New England Ace Dear Ace: I see no reason to announce it at a first meeting because its nobodys business. The time to

tell someone you are asexual is after you have gotten to know the person well enough to be comfortable sharing information. You are not the only asexual person out there. Because theres so much emphasis on sex and sexual orientation in our society, it might help you to know that an organization exists which enables asexuals to connect with each other. Its the Asexual Visibility and Education Network (AVEN), and you can find it on the Internet at asexuality.org.

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

CRYPTOQUOTE

HOROSCOPE
BY HOLIDAY MATHIS
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Talk more about why you want something so that the one who can give it to you understands where youre coming from. Share the logic behind your requests. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When a place feels right to you, it changes how you experience things. You become inwardly expansive, lighter and brighter. Your thoughts will go to happy places. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have a nose for the truth. When opinions try to pass as facts and vice versa, it wont fool you. Youll figure out which parts of fiction are true and which parts of nonfiction are completely made up. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Youre in the mood to do just the opposite of what is expected of you. Youll surprise and delight the public. Youll raise eyebrows and inspire laughter. Youre a rebel. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Whether a belief is logical doesnt matter. If that belief is active in you, it will have power regardless of how reasonable or true it is. Detach from your mental tickertape and examine your thoughts. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Anyone obsessed with being perfect or positive all of the time will accomplish neither. If youre going to be obsessed with something today, be obsessed with enjoying yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Like attracts like is the basic dynamic of energy. When you walk into a room, youll automatically go where your energy is in some way matched. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are so good at figuring out what other people need that you often forget to address your own needs, if you even know what they are. Do a needs assessment on yourself today. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Nothing can take away your worth. It is inherent. If you dont think so, then youre using externals to value yourself a rookie mistake. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you are creative, you align with the creative forces of the universe. Thats why its so energizing to express yourself. Youll get the chance to do so today. Seize it with gusto. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Its only reasonable to try to get along in the world as it is. In this largely inexplicable existence, however, reason is often overrated. Reasonable people dont change the world. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Something you own is clamoring for your attention today and causing quite a racket in the process. The sooner you handle this one the sooner youll get back your peace. TODAYS BIRTHDAY (Sept. 16). You love to learn and will benefit from what you discover this year. A different way of interacting with loved ones makes everyones life more joyful in November and December. Work projects pay you especially well in October and March. An alliance in June leads to unexpected adventure. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 1, 22, 38 and 18.
