In the s, some women used the language of the 14th Amendment to try to vote. InSusan B. Anthony was arrested when she illegally voted in a presidential election. This tactic of invoking the 14th Amendment to enfranchise women was permanently squashed when the Supreme Court ruled in Minor v.
Happersett that the 14th Amendment did not grant women the right to vote. Its hundreds of thousands of members helped support the suffrage movement, but linking suffrage to prohibition was strongly opposed by many who were not against alcohol and weakening the effort.
Still, the goal of national suffrage was a long way off. However, Catt left the organization tired of the internal squabbling. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the Progressive movement emerged to address issues associated with industrialization, immigration and urbanization. Many in the labor movement saw women as allies and potential voters for their cause. Inthey conducted the first large-scale suffrage march in the United States.
Wells in InCarrie Chapman Catt returned as president of NAWSA and turned the organization into an effective political machine, recruiting key supporters, raising money, and conducting public demonstrations with participants wearing white uniforms designed to draw crowds and newspaper reporters.
In addition, she developed a close relationship with President Woodrow Wilson to gain his support. Inboth the U. House of Representatives and the Senate finally voted to approve the 19th Amendment. The bill went on to the states, seeking the approval of three-quarters of state legislatures. Within a decade, state laws disenfranchised most African American women — and men — under the custom of Jim Crow.
It would take another movement in the s before all blacks in the South would be enfranchised. The struggle for gender equality continues today for equal pay and opportunity and equal justice in cases of rape and assault. The historic event triggered the women's rights movement in America.

Frank A. Bucci, Jr. As a result, other than my secretary, who took the place of the prior secretary, and my administrators, who were already in the office, I did not hire a single additional individu- al. Despite positions vacated by five attorneys who had left to become judges or moved on to pursue other endeavors, I resist- ed replacing open positions for several reasons. As an outsider entering as the district attorney, I did not want to have personal ties to any employees.
If cuts were possible, they would be implemented, but not unless they could be made responsibly. I vowed in my campaign to fight against corruption and the old- school politics that led to the scandal which engulfed our county. The laws passed by the Gen- eral Assembly provide that the district attorney, elected by the people, shall decide the mini- mum staff required to ethically perform the duties of the office.
We are not seeking plush and surplus staffing, but merely the ability to do the job as required by our legal and ethical man- dates. We seek sufficient funds to prevent cases and investiga- tions from falling through the cracks as crime victims, police prosecutors and residents of this county expect. We must be able to ensure dangerous people are not returned to our neighbor- hoods when they should be in prison.
My administration and I have spent endless hours examining and dissecting the operation of the office and the budgetary issues. The office restricted the use of experts and overtime and did not make hires, which were needed, unless absolutely neces- sary. The office moved money from line items where it was not immediately needed, essentially borrowing from Peter to pay Paul whenever it could be legally done.
Grants were sought to make necessary hires needed to maintain the workload. Assistant District Attorneys worked extra over- time without pay to ensure cases were prepared, briefs were filed and trials were ready. I immedi- ately set to work on the logistics of running this office on a tight budget. Seeing the impossible workload the staff is trying to handle quickly makes one real- ize that more attorneys are needed to fill the positions va- cated by newly elected Judge Vough, Judge Hughes, First Assistant Tokach, Deputy DA Pedri and ADA Dudick, who together had a total of nearly 70 years prosecutorial experience.
While I felt this type of cut demonstrated a recklessness and indifference to the oper- ation of this office, I was hopeful that the new council would take office, thoroughly investigate which cuts each department could endure and pass a reason- able budget. With a new court, new government and myself as the new district attorney, it was not my desire to begin this new era in Luzerne County in an adversarial fashion.
I began with the same faith in the new coun- cil that the voters demonstrated in moving away from the three- commissioner system. Nonethe- less, I realize we now have a full complement of judges who will demand that our office work overtime to alleviate the back- log of cases in our system, which cannot be done with our current staff. The budget proposed to us on Friday completely disregards the essential needs of this office. All of my pleas appear to have fallen on deaf ears.
Further, it is contrary to state law for county officials to require me to prose- cute fewer cases or ignore crime to save money. It has been purported to the media that this cut in our bud- get will result in a loss of six employees. This statement is either misguided or disingen- uous. It ignores the fact that, as I stated above, we currently have five fewer assistant DAs than we did 30 days ago. They were some of our most experi- enced attorneys, capable of handling extremely large case- loads.
The actual total loss, therefore, is currently proposed to be Thus, 11 layoffs or 20 percent of our staff would not come close to making up the difference.
Since taking over, I have worked on every measure to save taxpayer dollars. I have further restricted overtime and directed my administrators to pick up overtime hours without pay to make up some of the backlog. I am implementing policies which will garner the smallest of savings such as di- recting that notices be faxed instead of mailed when the law permits to save postage and directing that documents pro- vided to defendants be printed on two sides of pages or on a CD when possible.
I have even requested that our employees take rolling layoffs one day per month. LP), in an understaffed office, such layoffs, while better than a complete loss, would still exacerbate our problems. In very limited circumstances, our office can generate revenue. One possibility is to implement fines in addition to court costs in every criminal case. Fines are currently an option in every criminal grading under the law, but not utilized in many cases. People who commit crimes should be required to defray the cost of their actions currently borne by taxpayers.
I would like to thank Councilman Tim McGinley for taking time to understand the procedures and volume of work performed each day. As I said, I am willing to work in every way possible to see this through to an amicable conclusion. I have worked every day since my election, before even being seat- ed, to make this office and this county better. This office cannot continue in its current state, and this budget honestly prevents my office from executing its functions as required by law.
I believe our council members are trying. It simply is not possible to fully understand the operation of every office in the past 25 days and reasonably implement the appropriate cuts to close the vast debt immedi- ately.
Learning the intricacies of one office while working in it full-time and trained in the law was a formidable enough task. Tying our hands with the purse strings designed to administer justice simply cannot be the answer and leaves only one unpleasant and unwanted choice. I have attempted to and will continue to work and cooperate in LP) way possible to act in a diligent, responsible manner with the new council and for the citizens of this county so long as council will do the same.
None- theless, I will not neglect the citizens of this county. My first and foremost responsibility is to the safety of our citizens, the prosecution of criminals and the administration of justice.

Jacobs Logan, 64, of Kingston, passed away peace- fully Saturday, January 28, sur- rounded by her loving family at the home of her daughter, Colleen, with whom she had recently resided. She then returned to the Wyoming Val- ley, where she accepted a position as a guidance counselor in the Wilkes-Barre Area School District.
Her return also provided the cir- cumstances for her to renew a ro- mance with her soon-to-be hus- band, Russell Logan. They married in and settled in Kingston with their children. Helen took great pride in her pro- fession as a guidance counselor, tending to the needs of her students with a generous and caring spirit.
She possessed the ability to quietly help both students in need of aca- demic assistance and their families in need of emotional or material help. She worked in various schools in the district, including Mackin, G. The tragic passing of Russ in left Helen with three young daughters; she would go on to raise her family herself, handling children, work and home with the lively spirit and sense of humor that would become her trademark.
In addition to raising her family and her career in education, Helen was involvedinmany other pursuits over a period of several decades. She loved to travel, whether to the beaches of Cape May, Dewey and Naples, or to the distant shores of Ireland. She was an avid tennis play- er, a voracious reader and an enthu- siastic bridge player.
She appreciat- ed beautiful things in her home, bothnewandantique, andfrequent- ed local estate sales and auctions in search of special pieces of furniture, glassware and linens. Yet per- haps her finest talent was the rare ability to make friends, nourish friendships, andbeatruefriend.
He- len saw the best in people, ignoring their flaws witha twinkle inher eye, and delighting in their company. The circle of friends she leaves to mournher andmiss her is immense. Their kindness to Helen over the past three years will never be forgot- ten.

That distance is "significant- ly higher than human space- flight has gone since Apollo," said Larry Price, Orion deputy program manager at Lockheed Martin. NASAhopes that Orion eventually can carry astronauts back to the moon or to nearby asteroids. Like its Apollo-era predecessors, the four-person Orion capsule is designed to land in water.
The retirement of the shuttle led to the loss of at least 6, jobs. Lockheed Martin plans to employ as many as workers for Orion at Cape Ca- naveral as it approaches the test flight. In the midst of this onslaught of information and endless punditry, one could easily conclude that interest in politics is at an all-time high. However, the unfortunate reality is that only six out of 10 eligible vot- ers will make it to the polling places this November.
The bad news is that much of this political malaise is due to an outdated federal law that established Election Day as the first Tuesday LP) the first Monday in November. The Tuesday date is not established in the Con- stitution but rather by an federal law. Congress needed to pick a date, and our pre-Civil War, agrarian society provided incentives to select that Tuesday as Election Day. Inthe county seats served as the only places for voting, and residents, many of whom lived on farms far removed from county seats, needed time to travel.
Congress did not choose Monday for elections since it would mean traveling on Sunday, a day reserved for church. First, agriculture no longer serves as the basis of our society.
People have been mov- ing from farms to cities, and technology has advanced the means of transportation dra- matically. Polling places are now spread across the county, and residents can drive, if not walk, to their voting precincts. There- fore, sociological and technological changes have rendered the mid-week Election Day pointless.
Voting is the single most important civic obligation that citizens have, but voting during the week creates unnecessary burdens. When adults are unemployed or underemployed, they spend their days searching for full-time employment, scrambling between several part-time jobs while also caring for their children or older relatives.
Is it any wonder, then, that voting rates either have remained stagnant or have decreased after Congress made voter registration easier in the s? Moving Election Day to the weekend also would increase voter participation among to year-olds, the cohort with the low- est voting rate. While was considered the year of the young voter, only 51 percent of to year-olds voted in the presi- dential election, a percentage not seen since However, when young people, espe- cially those in college, are asked why they do not vote, they consistently cite the impedi- ments associated with midweek voting.
Many college students remain registered in their hometowns, not their college resi- dences. This means that in order to vote, students typically must travel home mid- week and miss class, or remember to re- quest an absentee ballot form months before Election Day and then complete and submit it on time.
Fortunately, U. Steve Israel, D—N. Herb Kohl, D—Wis. I strongly urge all citizens to contact their federal representa- tive and senators to urge the passage of this important legislation. Moving Election Day to weekend would hike turnout Kyle L. Consequently, the Iranians have concluded that Europe is not serious about preventing them from achieving their nuclear goals, and have pressed ahead with their quest for the means to make an atomic bomb.
Now, the Iranians can be un- der nosuchillusions. All 27EU member states have agreed to implement an immediate ban on all new oil contracts, while existing contracts will end in July.
The ayatollahs need to un- derstand that if they persist with the illegal enrichment of uranium, their country will pay a heavy price. And if they have any desire to resolve this decade-old crisis by peaceful means, they could make a start by co-operating fully with the team of nuclear experts from the International Atomic Ener- gy Agency when they travel to Iran at the end of this month.
This is not, however, to dis- miss the achievements of pop- ulations that have demanded and won a real say in their fu- tures. Tunisia heldits first demo- cratic election in October and chose the moderate Islamist En- nahda party as the largest single group in its constituent assemb- ly. Inspired by Tunisia, the peo- ple of Egypt were next to chal- lenge their seemingly en- trenchedleadership.
Hosni Mub- arak endured three days of dem- onstrations, then sent in police and troops to quell the protests. A fortnight later he resigned when the generals declined to risk ordering their largely con- script army to crush the revolt. But as everyone in Egypt is well aware, the break is not as clear- cut as happened in Tunisia.
The tragedy of Syria contin- ues. The revolt inYemenhas not yet been marked by success but rather by confusion and instabil- ity.
Elsewhere, however, largely peaceful protests in Oman, Jor- danandMoroccohaveledtorap- id political reforms. These have boosted the power of parlia- mentstogivevotersagreatersay inthe running of their countries. Withtheexceptionof Bahrain, where bitter inter-communal protest has been fomented by Iran, the member countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council have all seen the benefits of as- sured stability and economic prosperity.
With the United States ex- erting unprecedented pressure on Iran over its nuclear pro- gram, the Gulf region is the fo- cus of global attention. Many fear that the U. Worse, if the United States chooses to solve its confronta- tion with Iran by force, the re- gion will be plunged even deeper into crisis. As many of them grow older, they lose the necessary capabilities to drive, and this is a danger to senior citizens and everybody else on the road.
Slower reaction times and impaired vision probably cause more accidents than loud music or having more than one pas- senger in a car. I am certainly not saying all elderly people are incapable of driving, but we need to find a way to get those who are off the roads. The elderly people who have a problem with this will be the ones who we need to get off the road be- cause they are incapable of driving.
During the first six months after obtaining your license, you may have only one pas- senger under age 18 in the vehicle, except family members. This is a huge inconve- nience. As many families struggle through these difficult economic times, paying for gas has become a serious issue. Carpooling to save money and create a smaller carbon footprint essentially has been ruined for teen drivers. The school-bus transportation already is crowded in many districts, and it will wors- en when young drivers cannot take others to school.
Newly licensed drivers earned their licenses and should not have to deal with this law. Letters should be no more than words. We reserve the right to edit and limit writers to one published letter every 30 days.
But it is a family that shrunk dramat- ically in recent years, a family ripped apart by bitter fights and legal battles before knitting back together. Smaller family now In the school year, the diocese had 20 schools in Luzerne County, including four high schools in four separate municipalities. Those schools were teaching 5, students. But bad news loomed. Bish- op Joseph Martino had com- missioned a diocesewide study of schools, and when the report came out in Septemberthe outlook was grim.
Luzerne County schools were only at 68 percent of capacity. Prior decisions to close some schools had hastened the en- rollment losses — nearby schools would see gains, but overall, fewer students stayed in the system following a clo- sure.
Tuition had increased by as much as 28 percent in three years, yet still lagged behind national averages. Salaries for lay teachers — once a non-issue thanks to a cadre of religious sisters who took on the work as part of their calling — had risen by 15 percent in two years.
Control of schools would be taken from local councils and put under four regional boards covering the county diocese. Large groups met to save the three high schools. Some called for retaliation by withholding donations from the Sunday collection basket. A union that had represented teachers in several schools — The Scranton Diocese Associ- ation of Catholic Teachers — sought to continue represent- ing teachers, but was denied.
Students walked out of Bishop Hoban High School briefly to show support. State Rep. Eddie Day Pashin- ski, D-Wilkes-Barre, proposed legislation that would give private school teachers the right to appeal to the labor relations board. Martino held firm. The schools closed. Then, after six tumultu- ous years that he said had tak- en a toll on his health, Martino retired in August Even after the initial round of consolidation was over, the system was not done contract- ing.
Schools continued to close as enrollment continued to drop. This year, there are seven schools in Luzerne County with a total enrollment of 2, The lone high school — the former Bishop Hoban, now called Holy Redeemer — has students in grade nine through Inthe four high schools combined had 1, students in those grades. Joseph School across town because enrollment was too low to justify staying in the roomy Hafey structure.
Still, Bambera has been con- sistently upbeat, insisting the school system will survive. Living with consolidation Many of the wounds have closed over time, even if they have not healed. Milz said the last union fight with the diocese — a demand that teachers who lost their jobs in the consolidation re- ceive contractual benefits — has been fulfilled by the diocese.
The union is now inactive, though there is still interest among some current teachers to unionize. And not all students in the system are satisfied with Ca- tholic education. Theresa Thomas of Exeter noted that her daughter Anna wanted to switch to public school after sixth grade. In this case, Katie went on to study music educa- tion and found her training in music theory lagged behind other college colleagues.
Anna switched two years ago and now attends Wyoming Area Secondary center. Along with the savings in tuition, Theresa Thomas noted one other big advantage. When Anna was in Good Shepherd in Kingston, motorized trans- portation was the only option, something that would have continued had she enrolled in Holy Redeemer in Wilkes- Barre. One stated reason for the consolidation was to increase resources so the school could broaden academic and extra- curricular activities, a promise largely fulfilled, Vice Principal for Student Life Michael Booth said.
Six students interviewed agreed. Class size is rarely larger than 25 students, and some chemistry labs have dipped below single digits, Sara Cavanaugh said. All six students interviewed said they could feel the unity created by that. Booth also noted the consoli- dation gave the high school a much stronger presence of priests. While the high school students spoke more broadly of college preparation and com- munity service, the students at St. Nicholas touted their reli- gious training.
As Sister Immacolata Scarog- ni began seventh-grade class with a prayer, the children took turns offering their prayers for individual reasons. Caring environment The students voiced a sense of comfort in a caring envi- ronment.
Of course, there is the peren- nial issue of school uniforms. For year-old Thomas Engle of Ashley, they are a bit of a sore spot.

Security Council to throw its weight be- hind a league plan calling on President Bashar Assad to relin- quish power.
Russia, an ally of Sy- ria that wields veto power on the U. Security Council, has said it opposes any international move toward a change in leadership. The opposition reported Sun- day that convoys of government tanks, army personnel carriers and infantry troops stormed the Ghouta region east of Damascus, a sprawling patchwork of work- ing-class towns and farmland where rebels have been active. The military was seeking to oust armed rebels from restive sub- urbs such as Saqba, Kfar Batna and Hammouriya.
The opposi- tion described scenes of street fighting and urban warfare, as guerrillas ensconcedinalleyways and buildings confronted the ad- vancing troops and their heavy armor. The army was very aggressive. Video images from areas in- cluding Saqba and Duma have shown rebel forces in control of town squares, while sympathiz- ers brazenly waved the green, white and black flag that pre- dates the rule of the Assad family and the Baath Party.
At least 23 people died, said the activist, who goes by the pseudonymMo- hammed Doumany. Opposition activists said the government feared losing ap- proaches to the capital city, though at least one traveler re- portedSundaythat hewas ableto drive from the Lebanese border to Damascus without incident.
