BY MARK LEWIS ASSOCIATED PRESS STAVANGER, Norway Residents of the small Norwegian town of Rjukan have finally seen the light. Tucked in between steep mountains, the town is normally shrouded in shadow for almost six months a year, with residents having to catch a cable car to the top of a nearby precipice to get a fix of midday vitamin D. But on Wednesday faint rays from the winter sun for the first time reached the town's market square, thanks to three 183-square-foot mirrors placed on a mountain. TV footage of the event showed the center of the crowded square light up a fflMEMBffl J'. those 1 cnrn a i fnirrTTC ' Reprints are available of Times-Tribune photos For more information A on ordering, call JL'ttfl The Times-Tribune Library at 348-9140 or visit I 1 m- TERJE BENDIKSBY ASSOCIATED PRESS Residents play after the official opening of giant sun mirrors in Rjukan, Norway. touch, but not as if hit by direct sunlight. The plan to illuminate Rju kan was cooked up 100 years ago by the Norwegian industrialist Sam Eyde, who built the town to provide workers for a hydroelectric plant he located at a nearby waterfall.

"It's better off for the town the resignation came through," she said, adding that borough officials would consult with solicitors before proceeding. Lackawanna County District Attorney Andy Jarbola, who called for the borough to fire Mr. Semenza once the jury's verdict was announced, said the borough can now "turn the page and move on." "This is a good opportuni ty for the borough to start getting back on the right track in light of what has occurred," Mr. Jarbola said. "I'm happy to hear Mr. Semenza decided to do the right thing." Although his sentencing date has not been set, Mr. Semenza faces less than a year in prison, according to state sentencing guidelines. His conviction bars him from serving as a police officer, however. Attorney Gerard Karam, the borough's solicitor for Mr. Semenza's case, said he will now "monitor" civil lawsuits related to the case. The victim filed a civil lawsuit in November 2012 seeking damages for emotional harm, and the borough may be required to pay any damages she might obtain. The Times-Tribune does not identify victims of sexual assault. The victim came forward in May 2012 and accused Mr. Semenza, former police captain Jamie Krenitsky and former volunteer firefighter Walter Chiavacci of sexually abusing her. Mr. Krenitsky, Mr. Chiavacci and the victim, now 24 years old, testified at Mr. Semenza's eight-day trial. Mr. Krenitsky and Mr Chiavacci both pleaded guilty to indecent assault before Mr. Semenza's trial began. They are both awaiting sentencing. Mr. Semenza could not be reached for comment Tuesday night.
