1 Kane Republican Saturday June 28, 2014 the Vol. 120, No cents KAHS grad Donna Ingersoll working on 3rd novel By Amy Geer Staff Writer When Kane High s Class of 1969 meets later today for their 45th class reunion, one of their classmates that will be missing is author Donna (Champion) Ingersoll. Ingersoll never expected to be an author but is currently working on her third novel. Ingersoll grew up in Westline before moving to Mt. Jewett when she was 14, the daughter of Lorraine and Robert Thornton. The year after graduat- ing from K a n e High, she married Tim Ingersoll, a 1968 K a n e grad. The couple Donna had two Ingersoll children, Stephanie (Ingersoll Barker) and Timothy II and moved to Indianapolis in 1979, where they still reside. To date, Ingersoll has had seven works published, four children s books, two novels and a collection of poems. She wrote her first poem in 1982, shortly after the death of her brother, Kevin. Since that time, she has penned more than 400 poems, many of which are included in her poetry book, My Museum of Remembered Thoughts, which was published in 2012 and is dedicated to her grandmother, Mildred Paul.

Obama seeks $500M to arm select Syrian rebels WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama is seeking to bolster U.S. efforts to train and arm select members of the Syrian opposition, a move that comes amid increased U.S. concern that the conflicts in Syria and Iraq are becoming an intertwined fight against the same Sunni extremist group Obama sent Congress a $500 million request Thursday for a Pentagonrun program that would significantly expand previous covert efforts to arm rebels fighting both the Sunni extremists and forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Obama has long been reluctant to arm the Syrian opposition, in part because of concerns that weapons may fall into extremist hands.

On Wednesday, House Republicans approved a $29.1 billion proposal that would increase spending for public schools, social services and state pensions, but relies partly on a projected $380 million from an unlikely sell-off of the state-controlled liquor and wine sales. Pileggi, who briefed reporters following the leadership meeting, said he expects the final budget to exclude the privatization proposal, which the House approved last year and which GOP Gov. Tom Corbett has touted as one of his priorities. "We talked about different approaches to identify revenues other than proceeds from selling the state store system," he said. "We think we have a couple of ideas that might work and we're going to flesh them out a little bit more before we make them public." Pileggi's House counterpart, Rep. Mike Turzai, disagreed.

The words come to me during the day or during the night, or for that matter, any time or any place. I have gotten out of bed many times to jot a word or a sentence down. I have a huge collection of scribbled words on napkins, old pieces of paper, backs of envelopes and everywhere you can imagine. While she won t be reminiscing with her former classmates this weekend, Ingersoll will be thinking of them. The author and her family hope to return to the area later this summer if possible, although her husband s diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer s three years ago makes any plans tentative. Our journey has not been easy thus far, but we both know that it will get much worse as we travel through the stages of this devastating disease, she said of the illness. We are in constant prayer for a cure. Regardless of her troubles, writing and thoughts of home are a comfort to her. My heart will always remain true to the Pennsylvania woods, where I was born and raised, she said. Photo submitted by Donald D.Groff A fire call came in late Friday morning at a repaving job.

Details of UPMC, Highmark split made public HARRISBURG (AP) UPMC has agreed to allow some Highmark insurance customers to continue using its doctors and facilities at in-network rates under an agreement announced Friday after a bitter fight between the two western Pennsylvania health care giants. Gov. Tom Corbett and Attorney General Kathleen Kane, whose offices were instrumental in negotiating the deal in a dispute that has roiled western Pennsylvania, announced the deal in a joint Capitol news conference with officials from the two companies. In particular, people un- dergoing treatment, needing access to unique services or in an area with relatively little health care competition would fall into protected categories. A contract between the two companies ends Jan. 1. As a result, most Highmark subscribers will lose in-network access to UPMC doctors and hospitals after Dec. 31, meaning they will pay higher rates. Highmark said Friday that a small fraction of its 3.2 million insurance subscribers in western Pennsylvania will be affected. Fewer than 10 percent of Highmark's enrollees had used a University of Pittsburgh Medical Center doctor or facility in the last year, the insurer said. Some details remain under negotiation, but state officials stressed the deal would ensure that crucial health care decisions remain in the hands of doctors and patients after the inevitable split. "The focus had to be truly on putting the patients first, the people of western Pennsylvania, the consumers," Corbett told the news conference. Kane called the settlement a "first step in a long process to ensure health care security in western Pennsylvania" that averted a lengthy court battle. The expectation is that commercial insurers will blitz the Pittsburgh metropolitan area in a marketing effort that touts their innetwork access to UPMC. UPMC is western Pennsylvania's dominant network, with 22 hospitals and 400 outpatient sites. However, it has complained that Highmark is now a competitor, since the insurer recently acquired seven area hospitals from Erie to Pittsburgh called the Allegheny Health Network, and it refused to extend the insurance contract with Highmark.

3 Fun at Evergreen Park Photo by Amy Geer These three buddies were part of a large group of kids that spent part of the day Monday playing at Evergreen Park's playground. Shown going down the sliding board are, from left to right, William Costanzo, Jess Stear and Dane Anderson. OBAMA FROM PAGE 1 which has stormed into Iraq and captured much of the northern part of the country. The risk of U.S. weapons and ammunition falling into the wrong hands appears to have only heightened now that ISIL has strengthened. But Obama's request to Congress appeared to indicate that tackling the crumbling security situation in Syria and Iraq trumped those concerns. White House spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said the military assistance "marks another step toward helping the Syrian people defend themselves against regime attacks, push back against the growing number of extremists like ISIL who find safe haven in the chaos, and take their future into their own hands by enhancing security and stability at local levels." Meanwhile, the head of the Syrian moderate opposition is asking for more foreign. Ahmad al- Jarba told U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry at a meeting in Saudi Arabia that the insurgent march across the porous border between Syria and Iraq has created confusion across the region. He said the war against terrorism must be stronger than ever. Kerry said the moderate rebels will be crucial in the cross-border fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The Syria program is part of a broader, $65.8 billion overseas operations request that the administration sent to Capitol Hill on Thursday. The package includes $1 billion to help stabilize nations bordering Syria that are struggling with the effects of the civil war. It also formalizes a request for a previously announced $1 billion to strengthen the U.S. military presence in Central and Eastern Europe amid Russia's threatening moves in Ukraine. The president's cautious approach to Syria has come under increased criticism as the civil war, now in its fourth year, spills across the border into Iraq, with Obama opponents arguing that the president's reluctance to arm the rebels gave ISIL the space to grow stronger. Like the more moderate Syrian rebels, ISIL is seeking to push Assad from power. The group seeks to carve out a purist Islamic enclave across both sides of the Syria- Iraq border. With ISIL gaining strength, U.S. officials say Assad's forces launched airstrikes on extremist targets inside Iraq on Monday. The U.S. is also weighing targeted strikes against ISIL in Iraq, creating an odd alignment with one of Washington's biggest foes. Obama has ruled out sending U.S. troops back into combat in Iraq. But he has dispatched nearly 600 U.S. forces in and around Iraq to train local forces and secure the American Embassy in Baghdad and other U.S. interests. Class of th Reunion June 28th, 2014 In Memory of our Deceased Classmates *Gone But Not Forgotten* Wish you could be with us tonight If you see Amy Gustafson running by, Wish her a th Happy 40 th Today The White House has been hinting for weeks that Obama was preparing to step up assistance to the Syrian rebels. In a commencement speech at West Point on May 28, he said that by helping those fighting for a free Syria, "we also push back against the growing number of extremists who find safe haven in the chaos." Officials said the administration would coordinate with Congress and regional players on the specific types of training and assistance the U.S. would provide the opposition. One potential option would be to base U.S. personnel in Jordan and conduct the training there. The Senate Armed Services Committee already has approved a version of the sweeping defense policy bill authorizing the Defense Department to provide "equipment, supplies, training and defense services" to elements of the Syrian opposition that have been screened. The Senate could act on the bill before its August recess. In addition to the covert train-and-equip mission, the U.S. also has provided nearly $287 million in nonlethal assistance to the moderate opposition. The military program would be supplemented by $1 billion in assistance to Syria's neighbors Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq to help them deal with an influx of refugees and the threat of extremists spilling over their borders. BRADFORD A member of the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford faculty testified Tuesday before a subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Natural Resources. Dr. Matthew Kropf is director of the American Refining Group/Harry Halloran Jr. Energy Institute and assistant professor of petroleum technology and energy science and technology. He was one of six educators who testified before the subcommittee on energy and mineral resources during a hearing titled American Energy Jobs: Opportunities for Education. The hearing was part of a series being held to explore opportunities related to changes in the production and consumption of American energy. The hearing on Tuesday focused on the skills and education required to fill future energy-related jobs and how community colleges and colleges and universities are working to fill the need for expanded geology, engineering and energy programs. Pitt-Bradford has two multidisciplinary energyrelated programs: an associate of science program in petroleum technology and a new bachelor of science program in energy science and technology. Kropf developed the curriculum for the fouryear degree. He said that while he was developing the curriculum for the program, which was launched last year, he recognized two opportunities. He testified that the first opportunity is basic energy competency at the college level. There is an inherent need to teach about the complex interplay between energy resources, economics and The Kane Republican 3 Kropf testifies before congressional committee BILL FROM PAGE 1 Department of Health to treat cancer, glaucoma, post-traumatic stress disorder, HIV, AIDS, wasting syndrome, severe or chronic pain, severe nausea, seizures, and severe muscle spasms, including those characteristic of multiple sclerosis or Crohn's disease. From the Appropriations Committee, the bill would be voted on by the 50-member Senate. Folmer said he thinks the bill could clear the Senate before lawmakers break for the summer, possibly next week. He anticipated a 45-5 or 46-4 vote by senators. If S.B clears the Senate, which Folmer is confident will happen, it would be assigned to a House committee and go through the same process in the House as it did in the Senate. Upon House approval, the bill would go to Gov. Tom Corbett's desk for his signature to pass the law. But Corbett would not sign Folmer's bill as it is proposed, according to the governor's press office.

Kropf said that to encourage students of all majors to become more wellversed in energy matters, he created a new general education elective, Introduction to Energy Science and Technology, which he began teaching in He said that the second educational opportunity is to increase student proficiency in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Energy production whether drilling gas wells or installing solar panels is a multidisciplinary endeavor, he said. It is STEM skills that drive innovations in energy production and efficiency, and it is STEM education that will be the only means of achieving and maintaining energy independence for future generations. Kropf went on to say that a common thread he has found throughout energy fields is the integration of sensors and computers for automated monitoring and processing. He told the subcommittee that he has developed a multidisciplinary curriculum to emphasize the use of sensors and computers for energy applications.

Corbett remains focused on implementing research-based pilot programs that would allow limited access to cannabidiol oil, a marijuana derivative, within the state, Pagni said. A pilot program, however, would need legalized authorization from the Legislature, Pagni said, and Folmer's bill is not the answer. Still, legislators remain dedicated to moving Folmer's legislation forward. The earliest the bill could be received by the appropriations committee in the Senate would be June 29, Sikorski said. While Appropriations Committee members have not seen the proposed legislation yet, he said, Corman has generally been supportive of Folmer's efforts and is looking forward to reviewing it. S.B has provisions surrounding the use, manufacturing, distribution and growth of medical marijuana in Pennsylvania. A medical cannabis control bureau and board would be established to regulate enforcement of the drug and the laws surrounding its use. Companion legislation to Folmer's bill, House Bill 2182, was recently introduced by state Rep. Jim Cox, a Republican serving Berks County. The bill, which is identical to Folmer's, has 45 state Reps. Dan Moul, R- Conewago Township and Will Tallman, R-Reading to help get House members up to speed on legislation he would like the 203-member chamber to him at ext. co-sponsors, including Township.

4 4 - The Kane Republican O Letters & PINION Guest Commentary At the IRS, Stuff Happens Lois Lerner managed to contain her disappointment when she learned in 2011 that she had lost two years' worth of s -- forever. After being told that her data was being sent to the "hard drive cemetery," never to return, Lerner replied with philosophical equanimity, "Sometimes stuff just happens." Yes, the IRS is incredibly susceptible to stuff happening. First, it happened when the agency singled out the applications of conservative groups for special scrutiny and delayed their applications for taxexempt status prior to the 2012 elections. Then it happened when then-irs Commissioner Douglas Shulman went before Congress in March 2012 and denied that the targeting was taking place. It kept happening last year, when Lerner arranged to reveal the targeting via a planted question at a tax conference, and proceeded to falsely blame a few rogue employees in the Cincinnati office. It is still happening now, as the IRS failed to tell Congress about the missing Lerner s until two weeks ago. So much stuff happens at the IRS that top officials must routinely break mirrors, open umbrellas indoors and spill salt. They set out to fairly administer the nation's tax laws and through a series of bad breaks ended up applying them lopsidedly against their ideological enemies. They intended to cooperate fully and frankly with investigations into their unfair practices; through circumstances beyond their control, they haven't pulled it off. Lerner had her computer meltdown in June 2011, around the time Sen. Orrin Hatch and Rep. Dave Camp asked the IRS about its treatment of the primary donors to one conservative 501(c)(4) group -- in retrospect, one of the first signs of targeting conservatives. That the s were lost beyond recovery will strike most people as implausible, because it is practically an axiom of modern life that s never go away. Of course, it's entirely possible that the IRS is so incompetent and its bureaucracy so archaic (it was using tape to back up s) that it can't manage to preserve what most people can't get rid of. This, in fact, amounts to the IRS's best defense. But the IRS has hardly The Kane Republican 200 N. Fraley St., Kane, Pa., Editor: Joseph Bell Phone: Fax: Website: Rich Lowry Syndicated columnist earned the benefit of the doubt. Its instinct when the scandal broke was to try to cover up the role of Lerner and other Washington officials who were intimately involved in the targeting. As for the missing Lerner s, the House Oversight Committee requested them last year, then subpoenaed them twice. No one at the IRS bothered to mention that some of them no longer existed (the s within the IRS have apparently been recovered, but the ones to other agencies and outsiders have not). When IRS Commissioner John Koskinen testified before Congress in March, he couldn't bring himself to let them in on the fact that there might be a problem with the s. Even if the destruction of Lerner's correspondence was an innocent coincidence, all of this reeks of bad faith and is itself scandalous. We aren't talking about getting to the bottom of wrongdoing at the U.S. Board on Geographic Names or the Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization. This is the IRS, the most intrusive and demanding agency of the federal government. Yet it can't straightforwardly cooperate with an investigation into misconduct that -- once upon a time -- outraged even the president of the United States. As time has passed, President Barack Obama has grown much mellower about this little unpleasantness at the IRS. He could order the White House and every other agency of government to undertake a search for s received by Lois Lerner tomorrow. He could order the director of the FBI to undertake a forensic review of what happened to them. Instead, he is clearly hoping that the IRS scandal becomes another Benghazi, a watchword in the press for an irrational inability of Republicans to "move on." Republican investigators will, regardless and rightly, keeping asking questions. Knowing its rotten luck, the IRS won't be able to answer.

Ask This Students heading off to college for the first time or even to a new campus as a transfer are always full of questions. As an academic adviser at my university, I am happy to answer whatever a student or parent who accompanies their son or daughter might ask. Most of the questions I have been asked, however, are related to the pathway to graduation and career opportunities thereafter. While surely these are important areas for consideration, I believe that both students and their parents might benefit from asking a different set of questions that better gets at the real goal of higher education: to transform young people into people who can create a better world. To that end, I offer the following five potential questions that students and/or their parents should ask when they meet with academic advisers, university admissions staff, orientation leaders, or others with whom new students interact in their first few days. I briefly unpack each here, although surely many other extension questions can be appropriate as well. 1. What is the classroom experience actually like? Will professors work hard to reach learners of all sorts? This is essential, since we all know that people learn in many different ways. Since most of the education in the U.S (from K-12 through college) privileges verbal learners who can listen and take notes from which they study, this question is particularly important for those who require different teaching modes. 2. Does advising focus only on coursework and timely graduation? Some might ask, but what else would it emphasize? The answer is: A lot! If faculty members are the advisers, these sessions can be an important oneon-one mentoring session in which career and life tips are shared. Good advisers can help students understand not only how to prepare for their careers but also how to use the skills and knowledge they are obtaining to better their communities. 3. Are there opportunities for students to interact with faculty and staff outside of the classroom? Students can and should be offered opportunities to engage in campus Today in History In 1944, the Republican national convention in Chicago nominated New York Gov. Thomas E. Dewey for president and Ohio Gov. John W. Bricker for vice president. In 1950, North Korean forces captured Seoul (sohl), the capital of South Korea. In 1964, civil rights activist Malcolm X declared, "We want equality by any means necessary" during the Founding Rally of the Organization of Afro- American Unity in New York. In 1978, the Supreme Court ordered the University of California-Davis Medical School to admit Allan Bakke (BAHK'-ee), a white man who argued he'd been a victim of reverse racial discrimination. In 1989, about 1 million Serbs gathered to mark the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Kosovo in In 1994, President Bill Clinton became the first chief executive in U.S. history to set up a personal legal defense fund and ask Americans to contribute to it. Ten years ago: The U.S.-led coalition transferred sovereignty to the interim Iraqi government two days ahead of schedule. The Supreme Court ruled that the war on terrorism did not give the government a "blank and community service in which their professors are involved, as well as in research projects. These experiences not only add to students knowledge base but they also enhance their confidence and leadership skills. 4. Is the campus safe? Colleges and universities are responsible for creating safe educational spaces for students. This includes minimizing the risk that students will be harmed by some of the most common crimes occurring on campuses, like sexual assault and dating violence, but also that classrooms and other environments will be safe for students to express their beliefs and ideas without suffering emotional or physical danger. Is there any written campus civil discourse set of standards? Do professors protect that safe educational environment even when uncomfortable conversations are encouraged (for example, would a student be allowed to use a racial, gender, sexual, religious, or other identity slur)? 5. Does the college or university celebrate the achievements of ALL students? As a former collegiate check" to hold a U.S. citizen and foreign-born terror suspects in legal limbo. The United States resumed direct diplomatic ties with Libya after a 24- year break. Five years ago: Soldiers ousted Manuel Zelaya (zuh-ly'-uh), the democratically elected president of Honduras; congressional leader Roberto Micheletti was sworn in to serve until Zelaya's term ended in January Michael Jackson was honored at the BET Awards, which had been completely revamped to recognize the legacy of The King of Pop, who died three days earlier at age 50. Death claimed TV pitchman Billy Mays, 50, at his Florida home and Las Vegas impressionist Fred Travalena, 66. One year ago: Tens of thousands of supporters and opponents of President Mohammed Morsi rallied in Cairo, and both sides fought each other in Egypt's second-largest city of Alexandria, where two people including an American were killed and scores injured. The four plaintiffs in the U.S. Supreme Court case that overturned California's same-sex marriage ban tied the knot, just hours after a federal appeals court freed gay couples to obtain marriage licenses in the state for the first time in 4 1/2 years. athlete, I surely benefitted from the privilege many colleges and universities afford to student-athletes in terms of accolades. But much research has shown that the best educational climates are those in which different skills and knowledges are not only acknowledged but applauded. That means that colleges and universities must be equally excited, and share that excitement, when the Ethics Bowl Team, the Model UN, or other clubs, organizations, or students achieve at high levels. I believe that advisers should be able to respond to each of the above. If not, it says a lot about the institution. In sum, students, and the parents or others who support them, deserve an education that will not only teach but transform. It is my hope that perhaps this line of inquiry can help people determine whether a specific college or university is the best place for that to occur.

5 The Kane Republican 5 R Republican EGISTER State Police at Kane DUI KANE The Kanebased state police is investigating a DUI that occurred on June 27 at approximately 1:45 a.m. on Chesnut Street in Kane. According to reports, the accused is Vernie J. Moore, 53, of Kane. Kane Community Hospital Friday Admissions 1 undisclosed Discharges Jean Swanson, Kane POLICEReport On the above date and time, after observing traffic violations, Trooper Tyler Lauer initiated a traffic stop. Upon fourth investigation it was determined that the accused was under the influence of alcohol. Charges will be filed i district four HOSPITALReport Bradford Regional Medical Center BUDGET FROM PAGE 1 Friday Admissions Shawn Miller, Bradford John McClintick Sr., Bradford Francis Kramer, Smethport Discharges Stephanie Kightlinger and daughter, Bradford Rachel Deitz, Bradford wanted changes in the state's major public-pension funds and in the sale of alcoholic beverages before he would consider raising taxes. His spokesman said Friday night that he could not say whether his boss would sign the pending legislation. "Until we see something, I can't comment on whether the governor will support it or not support it," said the spokesman, Jay Pagni. Corbett, who faces a tough re-election battle this year, proposed a $29.4 billion budget in February, but an unexpected shortfall driven largely by sluggish revenue collections left a projected $1.7 billion hole. To fill it, in addition to the proposed changes in alcoholic beverage sales, the House pared back Corbett's spending plan by about $300 million and tapped hundreds of millions of dollars in cash from off-budget programs. The Democratic minority has argued that the state could generate hundreds of millions of dollars a year to help cashstrapped school districts by imposing a severance tax on natural-gas drilling or joining the federal Medicaid expansion. "Republicans shut Democrats out of their private budget talks with the governor. Now that their efforts are floundering and they are heading toward a late budget, they want to blame people who were not even in the talks," said House Minority leader Frank Dermody, D-Allegheny. Meanwhile, Sen. Jake Corman, chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, said the Senate is prepared to run a bill to change pension rules only for legislators, judges and elected executive-branch officials if the House does not approve a broader-ranging measure. Leaders of the House GOP majority have struggled to line up enough votes to approve a plan that would shift future state and school employees from a traditional pension to a hybrid system that combines a regular pension with a 401(k)-style plan.

Wilcox bridge repair to impact Route 219 traffic WILCOX Work to repair a bridge on Route 219 about a mile north of Wilcox will get under way Tuesday, July 1. The bridge spans Rocky Run in Jones Township, Elk County. In the work area, lanes will be shifted, making use of the northbound lane and northbound shoulder in order to allow sufficient room for the repair crew. Concrete barrier will be in place and two 12-foot lanes will keep two-way traffic moving through the work zone. The speed limit in the area will be temporarily reduced from 55 miles per hour to 45 miles per hour. Work on the Route 219 bridge will include the removal of damaged sections of the bridge and parapet. The bridge sections will be repaired and parapet and guide rail will be replaced. The repairs to the bridge are necessary due to damage caused by a truck crash in December of The hauler is responsible for the cost of repairs. The overall project is expected to be complete by early September, with A.L. Blades of Hornell, New York serving as contractor on the job.

Panthers take Ekblad with No. 1 pick in NHL draft PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Florida Panthers selected defenseman Aaron Ekblad with the first pick in the NHL draft Friday night. The 6-foot-4, 214-pound Ekblad played for Barrie in the Ontario Hockey League. He is the first defenseman to go No. 1 since St. Louis took Erik Johnson in Without a clear cut No. 1, Panthers general manager Dale Tallon was open to trading the pick. In the end, he decided to take the 18-year-old defenseman from Belle River, Ontario, with the first selection at the Wells Fargo Center. "That is the burden of expectation. I chase it," Ekblad said. "I want that burden of expectation. I want that feel for motivation and I want to succeed under that." The Panthers had a top-three pick in the NHL draft for the fourth time in the past five years. The first three defenseman Erik Gudbranson (in 2010), wing Jonathan Huberdeau (2011) and center Aleksander Barkov (2013) all played significant roles last season. Florida also won the draft lottery in 2002 and 2003, but traded away those picks. "We are thrilled to have RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) Luis Suarez exits the World Cup with one of the longest bans in tournament history, and his reputation once again in tatters. The Uruguay forward, widely regarded as one of the best players in the world, was banned by FIFA from all football for four months on Thursday for biting an Italian opponent in an incident that marred the team's victory and progression to the second round. It's the third time he's served a suspension for biting an opponent after similar incidents at both Ajax in the Dutch league and Liverpool in England and the second straight World Cup where Suarez exits in disgrace. The four-month ban will sideline Suarez for the first two months of Liverpool's season. He was also suspended for Uruguay's next nine matches, which extends beyond the four months and rules him out of next year's Copa America, where his team is the defending champion. The Uruguayan football federation said it would appeal. selected Aaron with the No. 1 pick," Tallon said. "He is a strong, smart and physically mature defenseman who skates well and can play at both ends of the ice. Aaron is another building block for our team and we are confident that he will fit well with our young nucleus of talented players that includes Aleksander Barkov, Nick Bjugstad, Jonathan Huberdeau and Erik Gudbranson. We look forward to his continued growth and contributions to our team and the South Florida community." Ekblad was the OHL's most outstanding defenseman last season, ranking first among defensemen with 23 goals and tying for fifth with 53 points. He also served as Barrie's captain. Ekblad said he was NHL ready and should fit in with the Panthers after a recent scouting mission. "You look who they have on their back end, right or left shots, all that kind of stuff," he said. "I was watching to see if Florida would get a new coach. The last little while, it's pretty fun to just follow that after the season." Flyers fans packed the arena for the first draft in the city. They gave one Aside from Diego Maradona's 15-month suspension for a failed drug test at the 1994 tournament, it's the longest ban handed out to a player at the World Cup. FIFA also fined Suarez 100,000 Swiss francs ($112,000). Suarez bit the left shoulder of defender Giorgio Chiellini on Tuesday in Natal during Uruguay's 1-0 win over Italy, an incident that went unpunished by the referee but was witnessed by fans around the world on TV. Given Suarez's previous biting incidents, the images went viral immediately. "Such behavior cannot be tolerated on any football pitch and in particular not at a FIFA World Cup, when the eyes of millions of people are on the stars on the field," Claudio Sulser, chairman of the FIFA disciplinary committee, said in a statement. The Uruguayan federation was preparing an urgent appeal, as Suarez headed home. FIFA even barred him staying with teammates ahead of their round-of-16 game against Colombia on Saturday in of the longest sustained boos in recent memory for NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman's draft introduction. He was drowned out for most of his 2-minute speech thanking the city for its hospitality. "Isn't this supposed to be the city of brotherly love," he asked. Former Flyer Rod Brind'Amour received a huge ovation when the Carolina assistant coach made the pick for the Hurricanes. The Sabres selected center Sam Reinhart with the second overall pick. He is the son of former NHL player Paul Reinhart, who was selected by the Atlanta Flames in the first round in Reinhart has the potential to be a top-line center in filling a key need for the rebuilding Sabres, who are coming off one of their worst seasons in franchise history. Buffalo ( ) finished last in the NHL standings, and set a franchise record for losses. The Edmonton Oilers selected center Leon Draisaitl with the third overall pick, Calgary took center Sam Bennett with the fourth pick and the New York Islanders picked forward Michael Dal Colle fifth. Vancouver Rio de Janeiro. "Luis in the next few hours will travel to Montevideo to be with the rest of his family to recover," federation president Wilmar Valdez told reporters. Suarez scored both goals in Uruguay's 2-1 win over England, a performance that further enhanced a reputation that had gradually been rebuilt following a 10-game suspension for biting a Premier League opponent last May, and an eight-game ban for racially abusing an opponent in Suarez was voted the English league's best player last season after a campaign void of any disciplinary issues. But now, the 27-year-old Suarez is the main actor in the World Cup's most damaging episode for a second time. In the quarterfinals in 2010 in South Africa, his deliberate handball on the goal-line in the final minute of extra time denied Ghana an almost certain winning goal that would have made it the first ever African semifinalist. Suarez was sent off, and then refused to apologize for his celebratory dance selected forward Jake Virtanen with the sixth pick, Carolina took defenseman Haydn Fleury seventh, Toronto took forward William Nylander eighth, Winnipeg selected forward Nickolaj Ehlers ninth and Anaheim completed the top 10 with forward Nick Ritchie. The Coyotes made their first pick since changing their name from Phoenix to Arizona. They selected forward Brendan Perlini with the first pick in "Arizona" history. There was a big trade in the hours before the draft, when the Anaheim Ducks acquired center Ryan Kesler from the Vancouver Canucks for center Nick Bonino, defenseman Luca Sbisa and the 24th overall pick Friday. The 29-year-old Kesler is a standout two-way center who has spent his entire 10-season career in Vancouver, compiling six 20-goal seasons and 392 career points. The twotime U.S. Olympian won the Selke Trophy in 2011 as the NHL's best defensive forward. Nashville traded forward Patric Hornqvist and Nick Spaling to the Pittsburgh Penguins for forward James Neal midway through the draft. FIFA bans Suarez for 4 months for biting opponent near the players' tunnel where he stayed to watch Ghana miss the resulting penalty. He also shrugged off criticism Tuesday of his bite. As usual, Uruguay officials and players defended their star player Thursday. "It feels like Uruguay has been thrown out of the World Cup," Valdez said, denouncing "a severe punishment." Veteran defender Diego Lugano wrote on his Facebook page that Suarez's family should be "proud of him, he deserves it." "A hug to Luis, who, as always, will rise," Lugano, captain on the 2010 team, wrote. "Outrage, impotence, I think that's what all of us feel. We all would like a fairer world, but that world simply doesn't exist." Even Uruguay fans who agreed Suarez's action was "stupid" did not agree with the sanction. "Uruguay is a small country that eliminated two big nations like Italy and England and it's not for FIFA's benefit to let Uruguay continue playing," supporter Juan Jose Monzillo said in Montevideo. Reds sign Cuban RHP Iglesias to 7-year contract PITTSBURGH (AP) New York Mets third baseman David Wright was scratched from the lineup Friday night against Pittsburgh because of a sore left shoulder that's been nagging him for a couple of weeks. Wright will travel back to New York on Saturday for an MRI. He first started feeling pain in the shoulder after stealing a base June 12 against Milwaukee at Citi Field. "I did something to my shoulder. It was just something I could play through and feel productive out there," Wright said. "It was not an issue, but then last night on a couple different occasions I seemed to reaggravate it. It got worse. I was hoping to be able to push through it, but they SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The Cincinnati Reds are hoping for more success with a Cuban pitcher. The team signed righthander Raisel Iglesias to a seven-year contract Friday. Several media outlets reported the deal is worth $27 million. The 24-year-old Iglesias will join the Reds organization once his visa problems are resolved. Iglesias defected from Cuba in November, two months after a failed attempt in Mexico. He held a workout in Haiti for major league scouts. Cincinnati general manager Walt Jocketty suggested Iglesias will begin his Reds career at the club's baseball academy in the Dominican Republic before being sent to the Arizona Rookie League. "He's a tremendous athlete, with two quality breaking pitches, a curveball and power slider, and has the makings of a quality changeup," Jocketty said. "Our scouts feel he can be a starter and be a starter very soon. The more pitching we can acquire, the more flexibility it gives us going forward." The Reds won a bidding war to land their current closer, Cuban lefty Aroldis Chapman, who signed a $30.25 million, six-year deal in "The decision was based on the evaluation of our scouts, the same group of guys who went to see Chapman," Jocketty said. "I guarantee you we saw him pitch more than any other club. I have tremendous respect and appreciation for the evaluation of our scouts. They're hard-working and very diligent. "It was a great organizational effort to get this done," he said. "We're very excited about it." Iglesias pitched for Isla de la Juventud in Cuba's National Series for three years, compiling an 8-12 record with a 3.47 ERA over 88 appearances, all but five in relief. He also pitched for the Cuban national team and appeared in the World Baseball Classic last year for Cuba. Jocketty said Iglesias, a converted shortstop, can throw the ball up to 96 mph.

The map is known as the LOST STREAM MAP to some anglers. Professor Higbee painstakingly plotted by hand, the location of 45,000 miles of streams onto the map. It sold extremely well - until the printer declared bankruptcy and hauled Higbee s work to the landfill. The few remaining dog-eared copies became a prized fisherman s possession. But reprints were impossible because the maps were printed in non-photographic blue. Higbee was even offered $400 for one of his last maps. And state agencies were forced to keep their copies under lock and key. Then, at the age of 91, Howard Higbee s dream came true after computers made it possible to reprint the map. obviously shut that down." Eric Campbell replaced Wright at third base Friday night, and Daniel Murphy was dropped one slot in the lineup to fill Wright's regular spot in the No. 3 hole. A seven-time All-Star, Wright went through a rough slump this month but fought his way out of it. He is riding a 10-game hitting streak and has an RBI in eight of his last nine games. Still, it's been a subpar season so far for Wright. He is batting.277 with six home runs and 41 RBIs in 79 games. "We'll follow the protocol like normal," Wright said. "I'll head back for an MRI and hopefully it would just be some rest and an injection. Hopefully, I'll be back in a couple days."

7 Nuno, Yankees shut down Red Sox, 6-0 NEW YORK (AP) Vidal Nuno rebounded from two awful starts to pitch two-hit ball into the sixth inning, Kelly Johnson and Brett Gardner hit consecutive homers, and the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 6-0 on Friday night in the opener of a series between struggling powers. Brian McCann added a two-run homer for New York, which has won six of the eight meetings with Boston this season. In his first at-bat as a 40-year-old, Derek Jeter fisted a single to right field with one out in the first. His birthday was on Thursday, the Yankees' final day off before playing 17 straight going into the All-Star break. After Jacoby Ellsbury doubled, Jeter scored on Mark Teixeira's sacrifice fly off Brandon Workman (1-1) for the early lead. The Yankees captain also singled in the fourth for hit WASHINGTON (AP) The Washington Mystics needed Emma Meesseman's career-best effort to beat Connecticut and end the league's longest winning streak. Meesseman had a career-high 22 points and tied her best with 13 rebounds to lead Washington to a victory Friday night, snapping the Sun's six-game winning streak. Meesseman was the key to the offense for the short-handed Mystics, who were without Kara Lawson (illness) and Jelena Milovanovic (strained right knee). Meesseman shot 11 for 14 from the field (79 percent) while the rest of her teammates were just under 30 percent (16 for 54). "I don't even know what to say," Mystics coach Mike Thibault said. "Emma Meesseman, that was sensational tonight." Kia Vaughn and rookie Bria Hartley scored 12 No. 3,390 and went 2 for 4 in New York's second win in six games. The Red Sox have been playing even worse, scoring three runs or fewer for the 11th time in 13 games and losing for the sixth time in eight games. Fourth in the rugged AL East, Boston trails the Yankees, who entered the night in third, by six games. New York manager Joe Girardi could have skipped the struggling Nuno (2-4) and given the ball to rookie ace Masahiro Tanaka because of the extra day of rest but, in a feisty pregame Q&A with media, Girardi insisted he was interested in protecting his entire staff, not just the Japanese sensation. Nuno rewarded Girardi with impressive innings after he gave up a total of 13 runs in innings in losses to Oakland and Baltimore. He yielded a leadoff single to Jonny Gomes in the second and a BALTIMORE (AP) elson Cruz and Nick undley homered to back commanding pitching erformance by Chris Tillan, and the Baltimore rioles beat the Tampa ay Rays 4-1 on Friday ight for a doubleheader plit.

Tampa Bay pitchers got nine strikeouts in the nightcap, giving them a major league record 261 in June. Cleveland had 253 in June James Loney's fourth homer gave the last-place Rays a 1-0 lead in the second inning, but Baltimore matched that in the bottom half with an RBI single by Hundley. Odorizzi threw 31 pitches in the inning, the last a third strike to Manny Machado with the bases loaded. Baltimore loaded the bases again in the fifth before J.J. Hardy fouled out and David Lough struck out. The Orioles stranded nine through five innings and were 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position. In the first game, Baltimore mustered only three hits one after the second inning. Added to the roster for the doubleheader as points apiece for Washington (7-9), and Ivory Latta added 10. Katie Douglas scored 18 points to lead the Sun (8-7), who had not lost since a defeat to Washington on June 5. Alex Bentley had 11 points and rookie Chiney Ogwumike added 10. Connecticut was just 3 for 15 on 3-pointers while dropping to 1-5 on the road. "(Meesseman) played like a veteran foreign player who took advantage of our younger players. She did a great job stepping away from the basket," Sun coach Anne Donovan said. "And even down low, she showed our team those international post moves." The Mystics got off to a strong start, making their first seven shots to take a 14-2 lead with 6:40 left in the first quarter. Connecticut, 1 for 4 with two turnovers during that opening stretch, started one-out double in the third to Brock Holt. Nuno then retired 10 straight before walking David Ortiz, his last batter. Dellin Betances, Adam Warren and Matt Thornton finished the three-hitter. Holt possibly saved a run in the second when he made a leaping catch above the wall on Brian Roberts' fly to right field. But he could only watch as Johnson's two-run homer in the fourth went deep into the bleachers in right field, his first home run in 85 at-bats. Gardner connected six pitches later, giving New York a 4-0 lead. Workman was otherwise solid, allowing seven hits and two walks in seven innings. He struck out five. McCann golfed a drive into the second deck in right off Craig Breslow in the eighth. NOTES: Red Sox SS Stephen Drew snapped an the 26th man, Colome (1-0) gave up one run and walked four in his second big league victory. The first came against Miami in his debut on May 30, It's been a strange year for Colome, who served a 50-game suspension until May 25 for violating the league's drug policy. He was activated by the Rays and pitched four innings of relief against Toronto on May 26 before being optioned to the minors after the game. In his last start for Triple-A Durham, Colome gave up nine runs in innings against Syracuse on June 21. He had far more success against the Orioles, holding them to one hit after Nick Markakis opened with a single. Jake McGee worked the ninth for his second save. Orioles starter Kevin Gausman (3-2) yielded five runs, seven hits and a career-high four walks in five-plus innings. Baltimore got a firstinning run when Markakis singled and scored on a groundout by Chris Davis. making its shots and took a lead in the final minute of the opening period. Douglas made two jumpers as the Sun scored the final six points of the first half to take a lead at the break. When Thibault realized that the Sun had 13 points off Mystics turnovers and eight more off offensive rebounds, it set the stage for a fiery halftime speech. "I can't even repeat what I said," Thibault said. "They were challenged a little bit at halftime, about a lot of things. The good part is that they responded." The Mystics started the second half the same way they began the game. Hartley had nine points and Meesseman scored six as Washington used a 17-2 run to take a lead with 3:52 remaining in the third. The Sun pulled within four in the final minute, but Latta made two free 0-for-29 skid with a double in the seventh.... Red Sox manager John Farrell said LHP Felix Dubront is being bumped to the bullpen. Dubront was not happy. "I have to stay positive and do my work," Dubront said.... Boston OF Shane Victorino (strained right hamstring) and 3B Will Middlebrooks (broken finger) had setbacks in their rehabs. Both have stopped baseball activities and there are no timetables for their return.... Yankees LHP CC Sabathia (right knee) will make his first rehab start Saturday for Class-A Tampa. Sabathia has been out since May 11 with degenerative cartilage problem in his knee. He will likely need to make two more rehab starts.... The Yankees rainout June 9 at Kansas City will be made up on Aug. 25 at 7:10 p.m.... Up next: a matchup of aces. Boston LHP Jon Lester (8-7) vs. Tanaka (11-2). Orioles beat Rays 4-1 after losing 5-2 in DH PHILADELPHIA (AP) Freddie Freeman homered, doubled and drove in all four Atlanta runs to back Julio Teheran's strong pitching as the Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-2 Friday night. Freeman's three-run homer was caught by Philadelphia play-by-play announcer Tom McCarthy, who was broadcasting the game from center field along with analysts Matt Stairs and Jamie Moyer, both former Phillies. Teheran (7-5) allowed two runs one earned and six hits in seven innings. He struck out nine, walked none and retired his final seven batters for Atlanta, which had lost six of 10 beginning with Philadelphia's three-game sweep at Turner Field last week. Craig Kimbrel pitched a scoreless ninth for his 23rd save in 27 chances. Ben Revere had three hits, including a triple, for the Phillies, who have lost five of seven. The Braves jumped on Kyle Kendrick in the first inning thanks to Freeman's three-run drive. Freeman's RBI double in the second boosted Atlanta's lead to 4-0 before Kendrick settled down. Kendrick (3-8) tossed a season-best eight innings, giving up four runs and nine hits with eight strikeouts and two walks. But the early damage was too much to overcome for Philadelphia's sagging offense, which entered ranked 11th in the NL in batting average at.241. The Phillies scored three runs or fewer for the 39th time this season and dropped to 7-32 in those games. The Phillies scored twice in the fourth on Jimmy Rollins' RBI groundout and Marlon Byrd's RBI single. In the second, Guyer hit an RBI double and came home on a single by Matt Joyce. A two-out RBI single by Jose Molina made it 3-1 in the fourth. Doubles by Guyer and Joyce, along with a single by Sean Rodriguez, added two runs in the sixth. Machado connected off Brad Boxberger in the seventh. NOTES: The first game was the makeup for an April 15 rainout. It drew a season-low crowd of 15, The Orioles put RHP Bud Norris (strained right groin) on the 15- day DL and recalled RHP Evan Meek from Triple-A Norfolk.... TB SS Yunel Escobar tested his sore right shoulder by playing catch but was not yet ready to return. He last played Tuesday.... Baltimore leads the majors with 38 HRs in June.... Evan Longoria had three hits in the nightcap, two off Tillman, and is 13 for 30 (.433) lifetime against the right-hander.... Jones' four hits tied a career high. Freeman, Teheran send Braves past Phillies 4-2 They threatened in the eighth against reliever Jordan Walden, placing runners on first and second with two outs, but Walden fanned Ryan Howard on a 97 mph fastball to end the inning. Philadelphia put a runner in scoring position in the ninth. Byrd drew a leadoff walk, but Kimbrel struck out Cody Asche before John Mayberry Jr. flied out to the wall in left-center. Domonic Brown, out of the starting lineup for the second straight day and third time in five games, struck out as a pinch-hitter to end the game. Meesseman has double-double as Mystics beat Sun throws with 4.9 seconds remaining to seal the win. Washington controlled the paint, outrebounding the Sun 38-25, a key advantage against a Connecticut team that likes to pick up points on the offensive glass. Much of that rebounding strength came off the bench, Thibault said, a key contribution given Washington was down two players. "When you have soldiers down, everybody has to step up and do extra, and be big, and that's what we did," Latta said. "No matter if we have seven, eight, nine, twelve players, we're still going to go out there and compete to the highest level." Still, it was Meesseman's play that made the difference. "She's a great shooter. She's a great pick-and-roll shooter, and she does the other little things as well, but you know, Coach has definitely been getting on her about shooting," Latta said.

9 ANNIE S MAILBOX COPYRIGHT 2001 CREATORS SINDICATE, INC. Dear Annie: My wife and I are in our late 60s and have been married for six years. We were both widowed. We have a great deal in common and are happy together. Our one bone of contention is her daughter. Justine is in her late 30s, married and living overseas. Yet every time she visits, she expects to get picked up and dropped off at the airport, despite the major problems that driving both ways can cause for us. Hints that she might want to get a taxi are blissfully ignored. When she comes without her husband, she reverts to being an irresponsible teenager, treating the house and its contents as if she had never left. She comes and goes as she pleases, helps herself to the fridge contents, takes over our cellphone, uses our car without filling the gas tank and hogs the computer to carry on long, loud conversations, all without a thought for the disruption she is causing. Her mother apparently doesn t see anything wrong with this. Justine has just left after a two-week visit and did not put her hand into her purse once the entire time, not even at the coffee shop. She spent almost half of her visit out of the house, often staying out all night. I hate to see my darling wife taken advantage of like this. Do you think I am being too oldfashioned? Is such behavior acceptable? How can we change this before we have a major argument that will benefit no one? -- Cranky Canadian Dear Cranky: Please talk to your wife about some boundaries regarding Justine. Make concrete suggestions (Justine will take a cab from the airport; she will have restrictions on the use of your computer, cellphone and car, etc.), and ask your wife to agree to enforce these conditions for Justine s next visit. But we warn you: Unless your wife is willing to put her foot down, nothing will change. If that is the case, please tolerate these visits as best you can, because getting between your wife and her daughter is a lose-lose situation for you. Dear Annie: Forty-two years ago, I married a kind, gentle, caring man. Over the years, however, he became hateful and mean. I spent the past 20 years trying to make it through one more day without spurring his anger, often unsuccessfully. Finally, I asked his doctor to check my husband for depression. His kind doctor prescribed a mild antidepressant. What a change I am seeing! I love my husband like I did 40 years ago and look forward to growing old with him. Please continue to encourage people to see their doctor about BLONDIE depression. Things can be better. -- His Wife Dear Wife: Thank you for the testimonial. Sometimes, depression manifests itself as anger, withdrawal, mood swings or other behavioral problems that are not recognized as depression. We are glad you could communicate the problem to his doctor, who listened and took action that helped. Dear Annie: Hurt and Disappointed said she sent money to her deceased sister s children so they d have an inheritance from Grandma. She was disappointed not to hear back from them Ėven though she said it was according to instructions, many people die without a will, and most states intestate succession statutes provide that the children The Kane Republican 9 of a deceased child inherit their parent s share per capita. It s quite possible that these nephews were entitled to one-third of their grandmother s estate. Please caution people to check the law of their state before they distribute any assets. -- Know Better Annie s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

You will feel this not only in your communication with others, but also in your writing. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a poor day for making important financial decisions, because things might look better than they are. Something is slightly clouding your judgment. Be careful. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although it s important to have a good relationship with authority figures, you don t have to sell out, do you? It s all a matter of self-respect. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Do what you can to help others today, which is something you probably want to do. Nevertheless, make sure you know what you re doing and why you re doing it. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Today the Moon is in your sign, which makes you more emotional than usual. You feel sympathetic toward someone and might have idealistic expectations of this person. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Some of you will develop a crush on your boss or someone in authority today. Be careful, because this could be a temporary thing, based on clouded judgment. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might be susceptible to the teachings or advice of a guru-like figure today. Make sure this person is worthy of your respect. Don t get carried away with what others think. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Don t give away the farm today, even though you feel sympathetic to the needs of someone else. Today your judgment might be clouded. Why not see what others think? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Conversations with others will be warm and friendly; nevertheless, something slightly confusing is going on. Just wait to see how things play out. Avoid making hasty decisions. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You have ideas about how to make your workplace more attractive or how to fix something at work, but are these ideas realistic? Get all your facts before you act. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is a romantic day for many of you, which is why you might develop a crush on someone. Wait a day or two to see how this feels. (It s easy to deceive yourself today.) PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Family conversations will be sympathetic yet confusing today. This could be because someone is not being completely straightforward. YOU BORN TODAY You are a truth-seeker and a dreamer. You are playful, childlike and fun-loving. You have lively energy and are sensitive to the feelings of others. Many of you are successful in finding practical applications to express your dreams. This year will be full of opportunities for future growth and financial accumulation. Settle your debts. Do not liquidate your assets -- not yet.

Local Readings-6/28/14 Call Julie At For more info: RoomReadings Submit news and photos to ST. MARYS After a lengthy and rigorous search the St. Marys Area School District board of directors approved the appointment of Dr. G. Brian Toth of Tyrone as the new superintendent. During a special board meeting held Friday evening current SMAHS Principal Joshua Williams was unanimously approved as the assistant superintendent, a newly-created position unanimously approved by the board with a salary of $110,000. "I look forward to the new position. Words can't express what the support from people in this community meant to me and my family," Williams said. "I truly believe it's the best decision for our kids, for our community going forward, wholeheartedly. It's a great opportunity." In addition Joseph Collins, current director of curriculum, instruction and assessment was appointed as the new SMAHS principal at a salary of $96,000. The curriculum director position was dissolved as those duties will be assumed by Williams. Collins will also assume the duties of acting superintendent from July 1 - Aug. 17 at an additional supplemental rate of $100 per day. Board members Patricia Rezmerski and Bert Sorg opposed this vote. Toth will assume duties in St. Marys on Aug. 18 and both he and Williams will serve a five-year term end- ing in Roth has been the current superintendent of the Bellwood-Antis School District for 11 years and has 30 years teaching experience. "Because Dr. Williams has reconsidered and decided he wanted to accept the assistant superintendency I am voting to hire Dr. Toth," Rezmerski said. "As a superintendent he has many years of experience and is highly qualified for the position. I feel he and Dr. Williams will work well together." Sorg cast the only opposing vote for the new superintendent stating "I still feel we could accomplish this locally at a much cheaper rate." He stated he wanted to acknowledge the input he has received from the local constituents and teachers. "It's far too often that elected officials lose sight of their constituents," Sorg added. Sorg explained he received an anonymous letter stating "the St. Marys community appreciates your efforts with regard to the superintendent search. Please continue to be our voice in this important decision that will affect our children. Our next superintendent has to come from our local community. Please make your fellow board members aware that they are there to represent the community." The letter contained $100 encouraging Sorg to take out an ad in the newspaper about the subject, however Sorg donated the money to the SSMSE playground project at the meeting. Toth's salary is $140,000, higher than current SMASD superintendent Ann Kearney's $127,000 salary. Kearney's contract differs as she has the ability to turn in unused days for payment, which is not being offered to the new superintendent. According to Luchini, Toth was an original candidate in the district's first round search of candidates, however the board chose not to include him as a finalist due to his salary requirements being higher than they expected. He noted Toth's benefit package is also slightly less than Kearney's. Luchini said the board reconsidered Toth taking into account the vast experience they are losing with retirements of Kearney, business manager Cindy FinGado and South St. Marys Street Elementary Principal Bob Grumley. The school district budget's allotment for administrators' salaries is $88,000 less than last year. Additional superintendent benefits include a one-time moving expense stipend of $2,500, an annual increase of 2.5 percent of the prior year's salary, a cell phone, 20 vacation days, three personal days as well as compensation items listed in the Act 93 Administrator Compensation Plan including life and disability insurance, sick days, emergency sick days, accumulation of personal days, paid holidays and graduate courses. Additional assistant superintendent benefits include an annual increase of 2.5 percent of the prior year's salary and 20 vacation days. In creating the new assistant superintendent position, SMASD Board President Bob Luchini said the board felt it was necessary considering all the needs of the district, specifically with the addition of curriculum and several other duties. "This new position allows Dr. Williams to get the experience he needs, should he decide to become a superintendent in the future," Luchini said. Williams said he is looking forward to working with Dr. Toth and learning from him. "I'm glad that the board members took the time to get it right, that's my humble opinion on it," Williams said. Williams has been the SMAHS principal for 13 and a half years. As a native of Kittanning he has been with the district for 19 years where he began as an American history and psychology teacher and a football coach for six seasons. He then worked as the director of technology for almost three years prior to becoming principal. "I want to be here. That doesn't happen much anymore in education where people stay in one place for the length of their careers, but I love it here," Williams said. "That's one thing from this process is that it has only made me want to be here more." Williams emphasized how he is looking forward to working with Toth and learning from him.
