But one little ingredient can add great flavor and keep you energized for the busy day ahead. With seven grams per serving, peanuts have more protein than any other nut. Protein provides long-lasting energy -- just what you need to keep going throughout the day. Peanuts and peanut butter contribute more than 30 nutrients and phytonutrients and can be part of a balanced diet that promotes good health. In addition, foods low on the glycemic index (GI), such as peanuts, are good choices for people trying to watch their blood sugar. Eating foods with a low GI score (peanuts score a 14) may lead to a slow increase in blood sugar levels, causing less insulin to be released all at once, and thus avoiding the sugar "crash." The National Peanut Board has some tips to show you how to add energy-boosting USA-grown peanuts to your daily diet. good taSte, page 1C Makes 4 servings (each serving = 3 tablespoons dip and 1 cup fruit/veggies) 1/3 cup low-fat plain yogurt 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter 1 teaspoon chocolate or colored sprinkles 4 cups fresh fruit and vegetables cut in "dip-able" shapes (carrots sticks, sliced cucumbers, celery sticks, sliced apples and pears.)

About an hour after voters elected Jerry Joyner mayor of Kittrell in a 54-20 race Tuesday night, Sandra Hubbard fired a broadside at her opponent. "I think he's going to be eaten alive by the Sam Watkinses of the world," she said during a telephone interview. "I congratulate Jerry on a well-fought battle, but I think he's too weak," Hubbard told a Dispatch reporter. She described Joyner as incapable of leading Kittrell in the direction the town needs to go. Told a few minutes later about Hubbard's statement concerning Sam Watkins, Joyner said "Wow!" He then chuckled and added: "I have no need to comment on that." Neither of the two candidates for mayor had run for office before. During their interviews, both Joyner and Hubbard expressed displeasure with the sewer line project proposed by Henderson and Vance County officials like Watkins, who is chairman of the Economic Development Commission. "On face value, I don't see the merits of this project for Kittrell," Joyner said. The mayor-elect mentioned that there is a lack of community support for the sewer line which would run through the town. "Also, I have more questions about the project than were ever answered by anyone," Joyner said. He cited the need for people in Kittrell to have "a community interest" in whatever economic development comes their way. "I think there is a lot of feeling out there that we want to keep a small-town feeling," Joyner added. pleaSe See KITTRELL, pagE 4a Day out as mayor in Stem Sneed loses her seat on Stovall Town Commission By WILLIAM F. WEST daily diSpatCh writer Woodlief wins mayor's race Bullock, D . Currin, Harris to take Commission seats By WILLIAM F. WEST daily diSpatCh writer Stem Mayor Jack Day on Tuesday was narrowly defeated in his re-election bid by three-time challenger Nancy Alford. In unofficial results, Day finished third behind Alford and Nancy Compton, with Town Commissioner Kevin Rumsey finishing fourth. Day in published reports had been quoted as saying he would not seek re-election, but he changed his mind. Day has been Stem's chief executive since 1991. In Stovall, Mayor Janet Parrott was unopposed, but there was an upset in the contest for two positions on the Town Commission. Incumbent Tonya Sneed finished third behind incumbent Tim Davidson and candidate Marshall Roberts. The Granville County Board of Elections will canvass the results this coming Tuesday. Here are the results for the other municipal contests. In Stem, voters returned Town Commissioners Lonnie Cole and Ellen Wilkins to office and chose candidate Angela Gooch Claiborne for the third commission position up for election. In Creedmoor, Mayor Darryl Moss was unopposed, voters returned City Commissioner Otha Piper to office and voters chose candidate John Stallings to replace City Commissioner Larry Robinson, who had declined to seek re-election. In Butner, which was incorporated in 2007 after being a state-run municipality, Mayor Tom Lane was victorious. pleaSe See ELECTION, pagE 3a daily diSpatCh/aSHLEY STEVEN aYSCUE First leaves of many to fall Edward Burroughs rakes leaves in front of his Young Street home Monday morning .

OXFORD -- Voters returned Mayor Al Woodlief to another two-year term in office and chose Ron Bullock, Danny Currin, Calvin "C.J." Harris Jr. and Jackie Sergent to fill four City Commission positions for four years. With all precincts reporting unofficial results Tuesday evening, Woodlief turned back a third consecutive challenge by Frank Strickland and an additional Woodlief write-in campaign by departing City Commissioner Steve Powell. Woodlief, who watched the returns with citizens and officials in the Granville County Commission meeting room, declined comment to this reporter when offered the opportunity moments after the results showed him the winner. Strickland, when reached later by phone at his home, said, "That ends my political career." "I was quite surprised. I thought I was going to do better than that, to be honest with you, but, hey, the people have spoken," Strickland said. "I'm disappointed, but, hey, what else can I say?" Strickland added, "I just guess it wasn't in the cards." Strickland, now retired from his position as chief of police at Meredith College, has repeatedly argued he believes Woodlief lied to cover up for alleged misconduct by Police Chief John Wolford and pleaSe See OXFORD, pagE 3a Index Our Hometown . . . . .2A Business & Farm . . . .5A Public Records . . . . .6A Opinion . . . . . . . . . .10A Light Side . . . . . . . .11A Sports . . . . . . . . . . 1-4B Comics . . . . . . . . . . 2C Classifieds . . . . . . . 3-6C Weather Today Sunny High: 60 Low: 37 Gardner squeaks by to hang on as Warrenton's mayor By DAVID IRVINE daily diSpatCh writer Thursday Breezy High: 63 Low: 37 Details, 3A Deaths Camden, N.J.

And Strickland called for the ouster of Tommy Marrow when Marrow was Oxford's manager. And Strickland last week released copies of his book, "The Rest of the Story," which has much to say about several persons in connection with Oxford government and politics, but is mainly critical of Woodlief, Wolford and Marrow. Woodlief, a retired broadcaster, has been mayor since 2001 and prior to that had been a city commissioner since 1987. Woodlief, who announced his candidacy in January, at the time said he would seek re-election because he believes there is much to complete that is already underway in terms of recruiting businesses and industries. A Walmart Supercenter at the new Shoppes at Oxford and a new Walgreens are open. And the Triangle North Granville business park has been taking shape. Additionally, Woodlief has said he believes City Manager Mark Donham, whom the commission hired in May 2008, "has some great ideas" and wants to help him. Powell, an educator, said at his home that he believes the good thing is Oxford had an option. "It had an impact in a way because it gave people an opportunity to at least begin to think a little differently from the status quo," Powell said. Bullock "It may have not had a great impact this time, but I think it did set a precedent for things that Harris may come up in the future." Powell added, "I think somebody had to break the mold." D. Currin Powell, who had decided at the end of July not to seek re-election to a second term on the commission, announced his candidacy for mayor last month. And Powell has said his reason for running for mayor is because he had been contemplating ways of trying to help the entire city get better and of trying to do something that would enhance the lives of people. The four commission positions up for election are being vacated with the departures of Powell, Paul Kiesow, Bob Shope and Chance Wilkinson. Oxford's seven city commissioners serve staggered four-year terms. WeDnesDay, november 4, 2009 3A NATIONAL WEATHER Seattle 58/44 Shown are noon positions of weather systems and precipitation.

At the same time, Currin said that he believes there was a good group of candidates and that he was honored to be one of the winners. Currin is a businessman who has served on the Planning Board since 2004 and who is the husband of Granville Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ginnie Currin. Sergent, who also watched the returns in commission meeting room, said, "I am honored and humbled and completely taken aback." "I can't believe it," Sergent said. "I didn't expect that. I expected Danny and C.J." Sergent is health promotion coordinator at the Granville-Vance Health District Department. Harris, as he was arriving at the County Board of Elections Office, said, "I'm speechless. Thank the Lord for his blessings, many blessings." And Harris thanked the voters. Harris is a mental health professional with the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services in Butner. Bullock, when reached later by phone at his home, additionally expressed excitement. "I'm tremendously pleased and had a lot of good people helping me, working with me," Bullock said. "It's been a good experience." Bullock is retired from working two decades for Burlington Industries and is presently a part-time instructor for Vance-Granville Community College.

Paid Obituary WeDnesDay, november 4, 2009 KITTRELL, from page one As for Hubbard, she came out swinging against the community "being taken over" by outsiders such as Watkins, and "being run" by the Kittrell Water Authority. The candidate declared: "I will continue to have a problem with that." Hubbard said she doesn't have to be the mayor to continue her fight. The people who put together an economic plan for Henderson and Vance County that doesn't work want to do the same thing in Kittrell, according to Hubbard. "The whole point of putting the sewer line on U.S. 1 was to create businesses," she said. The way was cleared for either Joyner or Hubbard to become mayor after the incumbent, J. Howard Wynne, announced in May that he would not run for another two-year term because he was resigning after more than two decades in office. Asked why, Wynne replied that "people around here just disagree." A good part of them don't want a multi-racial housing subdivision beside the AME Church, Wynne said. He added that "a few people resent Sam Watkins having access to the sewer line (along U.S. 1) if it came to Kittrell." According to Wynne, the sewer line would bring economic development to the southern part of Vance County. "I support growth in all areas," he said. "Jobs are what this community needs most." Wynne said the sewer line project "would be free. The Job Corps was footing the up-front money." Compared to the JoynerHubbard election contest Tuesday night, the other Kittrell and Middleburg races -- which were all unopposed -- were extremely dull. As a result, Kittrell's town commissioners are Jack Ball, Gene Pulley and Betsy Watkins Simpson. Also as a result, Ray A. Bullock is the mayor of Middleburg. Its town council members are Annie Fudge, Ruth Macon Nance and Gary A. Plummer. Contact the writer at email@example.com Deaths Danny A. Herion Jr. KITTRELL -- Danny Andrew Herion Jr., 23, of 785 S.

Not only are older drivers at increased risk for suffering from age-related eye disease that can compromise their vision, their ability to see objects in motion declines more precipitously than their facility to see static ones. By diagnosing and treating vision-compromising conditions, updating lens prescriptions, and outfitting driving glasses with glare-reduction coatings and tints, the ophthalmologist may help seniors improve their driving ability. They can also help older drivers better cope with a falloff in contrast sensitivity that is a common part of the aging process. Good vision is critical for safe driving performance. Because vision declines with age and the percentage of older adults in the population is increasing, it has become more important to consider the vision screening needs of older adults when designing evidencebased traffic safety policy. At FOUR COUNTY EYE ASSOCIATES, we care about you and your family and the quality of your eyesight. Good vision is your greatest asset throughout your life. Call 492-8021 to schedule an appointment.

The fifth increase in six months bolstered hopes that a revival in manufacturing will help support an overall economic recovery. The worry is that if consumer spending falters in coming months, orders will slump again. The Commerce Department said Tuesday that orders rose 0.9 percent in September, slightly better than the 0.8 percent gain economists had expected. Demand increased for both durable goods, and nondurable goods such as chemicals and energy products. New orders for durable goods, items expected to last at least three years, advanced 1.4 percent, better than the 1 percent estimate the government made last week. Demand for heavy machinery jumped 7.9 percent, the biggest gain in 18 months. There also was strong demand for military aircraft, which helped offset a second straight drop in orders for commercial airplanes. Orders for nondurable goods rose 0.6 percent following a 0.9 percent increase in August, led by petroleum, chemicals and food products. Joshua Shapiro, chief U.S. economist at MFR Inc. in New York, noted that orders for non-defense capital goods excluding aircraft -- a good proxy for business investment plans -- posted a solid 1.8 percent rise in September after two straight declines. The better-than-expected reading for factory orders followed a report Monday from the Institute for Supply Management that its gauge of manufacturing activity grew in October at the fastest pace in more than three years. The ISM index rose to 55.7 in October, the third straight reading above 50, which signals growth in the sector. Businesses replenishing stockpiles, higher demand for American exports and support from the government's $787 billion stimulus program led the advance.

All these reports are readily available through the NCDA&CS Agronomic Division's Web site, www. ncagr.gov/agronomi. Eventually, the NCDA&CS would like to notify all clients via e-mail when their reports are available online.

A new member of the Henderson-Vance Chamber of Commerce, DB's cut the ribbon to announce their new business recently. This year, the National Windshield Repair Association went `'Global Green'' and partnered with Global Glass Conservation Alliance to promote `'Repair, Restoration, Reuse and Recycle'' of all `'Float'' (automobile and flat) glass. The advantage of windshield repair is to save time, money and the factory seal and to restore 100-percent structural integrity of the windshield. More than 10 million windshields are repaired each year, making the process environmentally friendly. DB's Windshield can repair breaks or cracks and remove wiper blade scratches. The company can restore clouded headlights and reapply factory ultraviolet protective coating for less than $60 for most vehicles with a limited two-year guarantee. DB's can polish polycarbonate motorcycle or boat windshields and emergency bar lights. Free mobile service is available, plus DB's offers senior citizen and fleet discounts. The company is insured and certified, including membership in the NWRA and the GGCA. Jarrell can be reached by telephone at (252) 425-3289, mobile, or (252) 430-6759, office.

WeDnesDay, november 4, 2009 9A Court upholds conviction of former lawmaker RALEIGH (AP) -- North Carolina appellate judges have upheld the conviction of former state Rep. Thomas Wright on three counts of obtaining property by false pretenses. Wright was found guilty in April 2008 and sent to prison on charges he mishandled charity contributions and fraudulently obtained a $150,000 loan. A three-judge panel on the North Carolina Court of Appeals said Tuesday Wright received a fair trial. Wright is serving six to eight years for the crime. The Wilmington Democrat was the first sitting member of the General Assembly to be expelled from office in 128 years. A jury in August 2008 also found Wright guilty of felony obstruction of justice for preventing election officials from enforcing campaign finance laws by failing to report campaign contributions. serve out his two-year term through the end of 2010.

Lawmakers return to capital to talk overhaul of sales tax By GARy D. ROBERTSON associaTeD press WriTer Mayor pays DMV $338,000 after worker's theft WILMINGTON (AP) -- A North Carolina mayor has been stuck with the bill of more than $300,000 after an employee embezzled the money from a state license plate agency run by the mayor. The Star-News of Wilmington reported Tuesday that Oak Island Mayor Johnie Vereen agreed to pay to settle a three-yearold lawsuit by the state Division of Motor Vehicles. Vereen was not charged and denied having any role in the theft by former employee Annie Daphine Ross Prince. The 63-yearold pleaded guilty last year to stealing from the Brunswick County license plate agency that Vereen operated. Prince is serving at least five years in prison. The DMV shut down Vereen's plate office after auditors found vehicle sales documents were changed to show less money due to the state than was taken in. N.C. Rep. Warren won't run in 2010 HIDDENITE (AP) -- A North Carolina House member and former Alexander County sheriff won't seek re-election next year because he wants to spend more time at home. Democratic Rep. Ray Warren told The Hickory Daily Record he's ready to leave politics after 12 years as sheriff and two terms in the House. The 67-year-old Warren said he wanted to spend more vacation time with his wife. Warren represents the 88th House District, which covers all of Alexander County and part of Catawba County.

Affordable housing leaders meet RALEIGH (AP) Affordable housing leaders are trying to help North Carolina families keep a roof over their heads at a time many are losing their homes to foreclosure. RALEIGH -- North Carolina lawmakers returned Tuesday to resume conversations on overhauling the state's tax system as soon as next spring after House and Senate Democrats couldn't agree on a plan before the Legislature adjourned in August.

PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS "It's a useful exercise for everybody to go through," said Sen. Dan Clodfelter, D-Mecklenburg, one of the Senate's key proponents of an overhaul. Senate Democrats negotiated aggressively this year to lower the 6.75 percent overall sales tax rate most consumers pay and top individual income tax rate of 7.75 percent. Their plan also would have subjected building repairs, warranties and other services to the sales tax. But Luebke and other House Democrats didn't feel comfortable with the changes as revenues plummeted nearly 11 percent last fiscal year during the recession. Instead, the two chambers and Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue agreed to raise an additional $1 billion this year to narrow a budget gap largely by raising temporarily the overall sales tax rate to 7.75 percent and placing an income tax surcharge on the highest wage earners. Raising rates is a common response by North Carolina and others states during a recession, said Bill Fox, director of the University of Tennessee Center for Economic Research, who spoke to the committee. "Keep your bases really broad and your rates really low and you'll have the best policy," Fox told lawmakers. "It's high tax rates that cause most of the mischief in taxation and change our behavior." Senate Democrats would prefer to approve changes when the General Assembly reconvenes in May with a new plan, but it could get pushed back until 2011, after the November 2010 legislative elections. "I don't know what the timeline will be but I think it's imperative that we start working toward an ultimate tax reform process in North Carolina," Perdue told reporters after a Council of State meeting. Republicans, the minority party in both chambers, sound suspicious about supporting an overhaul three months after they opposed a new state budget that raised taxes. "Tax reform cannot be just another public relations strategy to justify a tax hike," said Senate Republican Leader Phil Berger, R-Rockingham.

For over two years, county residents have told you that a water system is not prudent, not wanted, and not needed. Fact after fact has been presented to show that we don't need, nor can we afford, county water. Now comes your negotiation with the city of Henderson for water. Things are not exactly going swimmingly. The city, armed with a mask and a gun, is attempting to hold up county residents. Reportedly, Henderson is demanding an astronomical amount for water, much higher than is reasonable. Why? Three reasons come to mind. First, they have no choice. They are broke and have no prospects.

Galatians 5:13-15 Our OpiniOn Watch out for tax system changes Keep a watchful eye on Raleigh. A group of North Carolina lawmakers have returned to take up meetings on possibly changing our state's tax system. A joint House-Senate finance committee will hold at least four meetings. The Associated Press reports that the group is considering changes to the tax system that have been mulled in Raleigh since the 1950s. At least three state panels have spent time on the issues just in the last nine years, usually focusing their attention on a plan to lower tax rates in exchange for applying sales tax to many items and services never before subject to taxation. "Keep your (tax) bases really broad and your rates really low and you'll have the best policy," said Bill Fox, director of the University of Tennessee Center for Business & Economic Research, who addressed the joint committee. "It's high tax rates that cause most of the mischief in taxation and change our behavior." What Fox is saying is that a little bit of tax on a lot of items is easier to pay than huge taxes on fewer items, which might actually discourage the purchase of those heavily taxed goods and services. On the surface, from a state-revenues standpoint, that makes sense. We encourage taxpayers to remain vigilant, however, because the tax rate is much more prone to change than the tax code itself. By that, we mean that in one session, lawmakers might finally make the big changes in state tax code that allow other previously untaxed items to be levied -- such as building repairs, extended warranties and other services -- while also reducing the sales tax rate of 6.75 percent (which is also "temporarily" up to 7.75 percent to cover state budget shortfalls). And then, a couple of years later when the state budget could really use another jolt, that tax rate might go right back up -- temporarily or otherwise -- and now it's applied to almost everything you buy, really hitting shoppers in their wallets. Hand sanitizer: The new bottled water The news anchor shakes my hand. "So glad you could make it," he says. Then he turns, still talking, and presses the nozzle on the hand sanitizer. This is the new American greeting. Howdy, neighbor -- let me wipe you off. The current hysteria over the H1N1 flu virus has people so spooked, they don't even wait until you leave the room. They touch you, then untouch you. Connectdisconnect. "So, have you done many cities?" the news anchor says, vigorously rubbing his hands. I have done many cities. I am traveling the country on a book tour. And I've been astounded to learn that the thing that most unifies America is not patriotism, faith, or even Jon and Kate. It's Purell. If I could have bought stock in this stuff a year ago, I would have emptied the bank account. Everywhere I go, there is a jar or a bottle. A plastic spout. A little squirt. Hands wringing back and forth. Suddenly, everyone is a surgeon. Scrub up. When did we get so paranoid? There have been flus before. There have been viruses before. We didn't turn into a nation of palm rubbers. But we sure have now. We see germs the way that kid from "The Sixth Sense" saw dead people. People disinfect in banks. At the office. Remember when Mom used to tell us to "wash our hands." Now we do it even BEFORE we eat. Heck, we're stealing the Purell out of Mom's protective hands. What's worse, all this worrying has got me worried. I used to shake hands without hesitation. Hundreds a night sometimes, if I was giving a talk somewhere. Now, sudMitch denly, I see alboM every hand tribuNe mediA as a glowing serviCes green wad of kryptonite. Every sink handle is a germ repository. I see a door and try to open it with my feet. And let's not even talk about the toilet handle. I never trusted that BEFORE the flu. In St. Louis, I go to a radio station for an interview. The host sits across from me. Between us are two microphones, two cups of water, and a pumptop bottle of sanitizer. Suddenly, I can't stop looking at it. The interviewer and I had shaken hands and now I can feel those germs seeping into my bloodstream. I stare at that Purell bottle wondering if he's thinking what I'm thinking: "I better get it first, or he'll have his pumping-finger germs all over the spout." I begin to sweat. My sweat makes him suspicious. And What's your opinion? QuOtable "This ship is actually a physical representation of that spirit with steel from the World Trade Center built into its bow so every friend that sets foot on it and every foe that dares challenge it will feel its power and know that it is literally made from the heart and soul of the city that has sacrificed so much." -- Mayor Michael Bloomberg, in a statement during a short ceremony after the new Navy assault ship USS New York arrived in its namesake city with a rifle volley salute near the site of the 2001 terrorist attack. "The current recession is likely to generate for children in the United States the greatest level of material deprivation that we will see in our professional lifetimes." -- Stanford pediatrician Dr. Paul Wise, in a medical journal editorial after researchers, using analysis of 30 years of national data, said that nearly half of all U.S. children and 90 percent of black youngsters will be on food stamps at some point during childhood. True conservatives just want a turn If there's one thing liberal pundits are experts on these days it's the sorry state of conservatism. The airwaves and op-ed pages brim with more-insorrow-than-in-anger lamentations on the GOP's failure to get with President Obama's program, the party's inevitable demographic demise and its thralldom to the demonic deities of the right -- Limbaugh, Beck, Palin. Such sages as the New York Times' Sam Tanenhaus and Frank Rich insist that the right is out of ideas. After all, the religious dogmatism and "market fundamentalism" of the Bush administration were entirely discredited, leaving the GOP with its intellectual cupboard bare. "During the two terms of George W. Bush," Tanenhaus declares in his latest book, "conservative ideas were not merely tested but also pursued with dogmatic fixity." Even worse than being brain-dead, the right is blackhearted, hating good-and-fair Obama for his skin color and obvious do-goodery. Predictably, Republican Dede Scozzafava's withdrawal from the congressional race in New York's 23rd District is not only proof the experts are right, but also conveniently a more important story than the Democrats' parlous standing with voters. Don't look at the imploding Democrats. No, let's all titter at the cannibalistic "civil war" on the right. Frank Rich, gifted psephologist, finds the perfect parallel to the GOP's squabbles in Stalin's murderous purges. "Though they constantly liken the president to various totalitarian dictators," Rich writes, "it is they who are Jonah re-enacting GoldberG Stalinism in full purge tribuNe mediA mode." serviCes Stalin's "full purge mode" involved the systematized exile and slaughter of hundreds of thousands (not counting his genocide of millions). The GOP's purge has so far caused one very liberal Republican to halt her bid for Congress. Let me offer a counter-theory, admittedly lacking in such color but making up for it with evidence and consideration of what conservatives actually believe. After 15 or 20 years of steady moderation, many conservatives think it might be time to give their ideas a try. Bush's "compassionate conservatism" was promoted as an alternative to traditional conservatism. Bush promised to be a "different kind of Republican," and he kept that promise. He advocated government activism, and he put our money where his mouth was. He federalized education with No Child Left Behind -- cosponsored by Teddy Kennedy -- and oversaw the biggest increase in education spending in history (58 percent faster than inflation), according to the Heritage Foundation, while doing next to nothing to advance the conservative idea known as school choice. With the prescription drug benefit, he created the biggest new entitlement since the Great Society (Obama is poised to topple that record). Bush increased spending on the National Institutes of Health by 36 percent and international aid by 74 percent, according to Heritage. He oversaw the largest, most porktacular farm bills ever. He signed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, a massive new regulation of Wall Street. His administration defended affirmative action before the Supreme Court. He pushed amnesty for immigrants, imposed steel tariffs, supported Title IX and signed the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform legislation. Oh, and he, not Obama, initiated the first bailouts and TARP. Not all of these positions were wrong or indefensible. But the notion that Bush pursued conservative ideas with "dogmatic fixity" is dogmatic nonsense. Most Democrats were blinded to all of this because of their anger over the Iraq war and an often irrational hatred of Bush. Republicans, meanwhile, defended Bush far more than they would have had it not been for 9/11 and the hysteria of his enemies. In 2008, the primaries lacked a Bush proxy who could have siphoned off much of the discontent on the right. Moreover, the party made the political calculation that John McCain -- another unorthodox and inconsistent conservative -- was the best candidate to beat Obama. In short, conservatives have had to not only put up with a lot of moderation and ideological flexibility, we've had to endure nearly a decade of taunting from gargoyles insisting that the GOP is run by crazed radicals. The rank and file might be wrong to want to get back to basics, but I don't think so. With Obama racing to transform America into a European welfare state fueled by terrifying deficit spending, this seems like a good moment to argue for limited government. Oh, and a little forgiveness, please, for not trusting the judgment of the experts who insist they know what's happening on the racist, paranoid, market-fundamentalist, Stalinist right.

Rhett is a college student who lives at home. He had his girlfriend, "Peggy," who lives in another town, at the house for the weekend. Rhett and Peggy retired to his room early in the evening. When we saw them at breakfast, they were, basically, uncommunicative. Shortly after, they went to the backyard and immediately climbed into the hammock, where they lay like tightly wound dishrags for the next two hours until it was time for us to leave. Our son and his wife did not Dear awaken abby them to say goodbye, Universal Press so we consyndicate cluded that they had been exhausted by the previous night's activities. Is this normal behavior in today's world? We realize that we may be "old fogeys" by current standards, but isn't there any line drawn anymore? My son and his wife acted like this was all perfectly fine. -- INVISIBLE GRANDPA IN ARKANSAS DEAR GRANDPA: Whether Rhett's behavior -- and his parents' tolerance of it -- is "fine" in today's world depends upon the standards in that household. However, there are "family manners" and "company manners." From your description of the goings-on during your visit, and that no effort was made to spend any quality time with you, I'd say your grandson's behavior was just plain rude. That said, Rhett was not entirely to blame. Some fault lies with your son and his wife for tolerating your being ignored and not insisting that you be treated with more courtesy and respect. -- for two years. Nobody knows why. We grew up a close-knit family with lots of love and affection. About six years ago, Jeff moved with his wife and children to a different state. During the first few years, he stayed in touch via phone calls and e-mails, but suddenly all communication ceased. We know where he lives and have tried contacting him through letters, phone calls and e-mails, but he will not respond. Our parents are devastated and none of us knows what to do. We have so many questions: Is Jeff hiding something? Is he ill? How are the children? What do we do, Abby? Please help. -- FAMILY IN PAIN DEAR IN PAIN: Because you have tried everything else, only one thing is left. If at all possible, your parents and the sibling who was closest to Jeff should schedule a visit to the city in which he now resides and pay him a call. DEAR ABBY: I married a man who owns a duplex with his mother. When the taxes come due there are two sets -- one for each side. The house is not habitable. It needs a lot of work to get it ready. My mother-in-law thinks her son should pay the taxes on both sides, and also pay to fix up the place. Now that he has a wife, his mother thinks I should help him pay for the house and the taxes. But the deed is "survivorship" with him and his mother. Why should I pay to get it fixed up when his mom makes it clear that if something happens to her son, the house is hers and hers alone? -- TAKEN FOR GRANTED IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR TAKEN FOR GRANTED: Beats me!

On this date: In 1924, Nellie T. Ross of Wyoming was elected the nation's first female governor to serve out the remaining term of her late husband, William B. Ross. In 1939, the United States modified its neutrality stance in World War II, allowing "cash and carry" purchases of arms by belligerents, a policy favoring Britain and France. In 1942, during World War II, Axis forces retreated from El Alamein in North Africa in a major victory for British forces commanded by Lt. Gen. Bernard Montgomery. In 1952, Dwight D. Eisenhower was elected president, defeating Democrat Adlai Stevenson. In 1979, the Iran hostage crisis began as militants stormed the United States Embassy in Tehran, seizing its occupants; for some, it was the start of 444 days of captivity. In 1980, Ronald Reagan won the White House as he defeated President Jimmy Carter by a strong margin. In 1991, Ronald Reagan opened his presidential library in Simi Valley, Calif., with a dedication attended by President George H.W. Bush and former Presidents Jimmy Carter, Gerald R. Ford and Richard Nixon -- VARIETY MOVIES By The AssociATed Press the first-ever gathering of five past and present U.S. chief executives. Ten years ago: Aaron McKinney, who beat gay college student Matthew Shepard and left him to die on the Wyoming prairie, avoided the death penalty by agreeing to serve life in prison without parole and promising never to appeal his conviction. Five years ago: It was announced that Elizabeth Edwards, wife of former Democratic vicepresidential candidate John Edwards, had been diagnosed with breast cancer the same day her husband and Sen. John Kerry conceded the presidential race. One year ago: California voters approved Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment outlawing same-sex marriage, overturning a state Supreme Court decision that gave gay couples the right to wed just months earlier.

The architect of some of the nation's best defenses that helped Florida State win a pair of national titles in the 1990s, Andrews announced his decision Tuesday in a handwritten statement. "Because of a lot of speculation and questioning from friends, family and media, we decided to go ahead and do it now," Andrews said. Bowden "It's time to be about us my family." A football star at Alabama under the coach Paul "Bear" Bryant, Andrews developed 18 first round NFL draft picks during 26 seasons at Florida State beginning with cornerback Deion Sanders in 1989. "Not a single day goes by when I am coaching, mentoring or teaching somebody that I don't use things coach Andrews taught me," Sanders said Tuesday. Since 1985, NFL teams have picked 73 defensive players developed by Andrews at Florida State. That list includes Peter Boulware, Derrick Brooks, Terrell Buckley, LeRoy Butler, Sam Cowart and Marvin Jones, who like Sanders all went on to star in the NFL. But this year there were no players of the caliber Andrews had coached for so many years and a young Seminole defense has struggled all season. Andrews will direct the PleAse see ANDREWS, pAgE 3B In this Oct. 8, 2005 file photo, Florida State defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews yells at his players during a game against Wake Forest in Tallahassee, Fla.

By SARAH KARUSH AssociAted Press Writer Ga. Tech has made rapid rise under Johnson By PAUL NEWBERRy AP sPorts Writer WASHINGTON -- Cleveland Cavaliers guard Delonte West was indicted Tuesday on additional weapons and traffic charges stemming from his Sept. 17 arrest for speeding on a motorcycle and carrying multiple weapons. The eight-count indictment sheds no new light on why West, 26, was riding a motorcycle on the Capital Beltway in Prince George's County, Md., at 10 p.m. with two loaded handguns and a loaded shot- West gun. Prosecutors on Wednesday added an 8 1/2-inch Bowie knife to the list of concealed weapons West was carrying. It's illegal in Maryland to carry concealed weapons and to transport loaded handguns. West was indicted on two counts of carrying a dangerous weapon, two counts of carrying a handgun, two counts of transporting a handgun, and one count each of reckless driving and negligent driving. The charges are all misdemeanors. Each weapons count carries a penalty of up to three years in prison. West was initially charged with just two counts of carrying a handgun and with driving in excess of reasonable and prudent speed. Court records don't list a lawyer for West.

PhilliP Philadelphia's Chase Utley watches his home run against New York's Phil Coke during the seventh inning of Game 5 of the World Series Monday in Philadelphia. Utley and the Phillies return to action in Game 6 tonight, when the series shifts back to Yankee Stadium. Utley tied with Reggie Jackson for most homers in a Series By ROB MAADDI AP sPorts Writer Philly's `Mr. October?' success means more cameras follow him around. Utley -- no surprise -- prefers to avoid the microphones. "It's not my favorite part," Utley said. "My favorite part is playing the game. But it obviously comes with the territory. You kind of learn how to deal with it as you grow. I'm getting a little bit more used to it. But I'd rather just go out and play." Utley got the Phillies started with a big swing, and the rest of the slumping big boppers broke out of their hitting funk. Utley hit a three-run shot off A.J. Burnett in the first inning and a solo homer off Phil Coke in the seventh, becoming the PHILADELPHIA -- Chase Utley is too old-school to flip his bat, pause at the plate, jog slowly or do any flashy handshakes after he hits home runs. It's not like he doesn't have enough opportunities. Utley connected twice Monday night to tie Reggie Jackson's record for homers in a World Series, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the New York Yankees 8-6 in Game 5 to avoid elimination. Utley is batting .333 (6 for 18) with five homers and eight RBIs against the Yankees. His second player to have two multihomer games in a World Series. Willie Aikens did it for Kansas City against the Phillies in 1980. Jackson hit five homers for the Yankees in the 1977 Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He earned the nickname "Mr. October" with three in New York's clinching victory in Game 6. "Obviously, it's great company," Utley said. "At some point, not right now, maybe I'll look back on it and see what kind of special moment it is. But right now our goal is to win two more games." PleAse see UTLEY, pAgE 3B Blue Devils find a defense to go with pass attack By AARON BEARD AP sPorts Writer DURHAM -- Adam Banks doesn't mind that Duke fans only want to talk about Thad Lewis and the Blue Devils' passing attack these days. "I wouldn't blame them," the junior linebacker said Tuesday. "It's probably more exciting to watch (than defense), to tell you the truth." Maybe, but the defensive improvement going on Durham these days can't be ignored when looking at the Blue Devils' push for bowl eligibility. After repeatedly ranking as the worst defense in the Atlantic Coast Conference, Duke has improved to anywhere from the middle to upper third of the league in several key categories. And while Lewis is throwing the ball all over the field, the defense has just as much to do with the Blue Devils' three-game winning streak heading into Saturday's game at rival North Carolina. "It definitely helps them out," Banks said of the offense. "If I AP Photo/the dAily Progress, ANdreW ShUrTleFF duke defensive tackle Vince Oghobaase sacks Virginia quarterback Jameel Sewell during Saturday's game in Charlottesville, Va. duke won 28-17. was an offensive guy, I'd like to know we don't have to score every single drive." The Blue Devils (5-3, 3-1 ACC) rank fourth in the league in total defense (324.8 yards per game), fifth against the pass and sixth against the run. Duke is eighth in scoring defense at 24 points per game. Those numbers aren't all that eye-popping, but compare them to the three years before David Cutcliffe's arrival at Duke. From 2005-07, Duke ranked last in the league in both scoring defense -- allowing at least 33 points in all three seasons -- and in total defense at nearly 400 yards each year. In the past two games, the defense held Maryland to 13 points, then came up big in the Blue Devils' 28-17 win at Virginia. In that game, Duke even got a defensive touchdown as it protected a one-point lead in the final 3 1/2 minutes -- the kind of play the Blue Devils have never seemed to make during their long run of futility. "When you're watching the tape, from the point Virginia went ahead 17-12, our defense became by far the dominant unit on the field," Cutcliffe said. "They were better than Virginia's defense, they were better than Duke's offense and they were better than Virginia's offense. That helps you win games in the fourth quarter. Their speed of play, their intensity level, I loved it, because it got turned up a notch at the right time." It's especially good timing considering Lewis, a four-year starter at quarterback, has PleAse see DUKE, pAgE 3B ATLANTA -- Georgia Tech is probably a little too far back to become a factor in the national championship race. That doesn't diminish what the program has accomplished in less than two years under coach Paul Johnson. "I have all the confidence in the world that this team could go out there and play with anybody on a given Saturday," defensive end Derrick Morgan said. "We have that confidence about ourselves." With good reason. The No. 10 Yellow Jackets (8-1, 5-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) are on a six-game winning streak and haven't been ranked this high since 2001. They are two victories away from clinching a Johnson spot in the league championship game, where they likely would be playing for a spot in the Orange Bowl. "I haven't mentioned it to the players," Johnson said Tuesday. "I'm sure they're aware of it, but we've still got to finish out. We haven't done anything yet. We're getting close, but we've got to finish." Georgia Tech is also No. 10 in the BCS standings and would need a major shakeup to climb into contention for a spot in the national championship game. None of its last three regular-season opponents -- Wake Forest on Saturday, followed by Duke and Georgia -- is ranked, so even winning out isn't likely to provide much of a ratings boost. Johnson isn't totally giving up on the idea of making a run for the top two spots in the BCS, though he knows the odds are against his team.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Christopher Johnson and Laurence Ekperigin hooted and hollered as they skipped off Jim Boeheim Court, huge smiles creasing their faces and seemingly as stunned as the Syracuse Orange at what had just transpired. Johnson scored 17 of his 22 points in the second half, including a 3-pointer with 8.3 seconds remaining, and Division II Le Moyne stunned Syracuse 82-79 in an exhibition game Tuesday night. "We've got an experienced group," Le Moyne head coach Steve Evans said. "Did we ever think that a day like this would happen? Probably not. But we put together a game plan. We didn't want to play Syracuse's way. We wanted to play our way. It was just one of those days for Le Moyne basketball. The kids will remember this forever." Wes Johnson, who led Syracuse with 34 points, hit a 3 from the left corner to put Syracuse ahead 79-78 with 22 seconds left. Then Christopher Johnson responded with his sixth 3-pointer of the game, which ap phoTo/The posT-sTanDarD, DENNIS NETT The Le Moyne bench celebrates in the final seconds during their win in an exhibition game against Syracuse Tuesday. came from the left side after Syracuse's Kris Joseph backed off defensively. "We were sort of out of whack a little bit," Christopher Johnson said. "Everyone was rushing. But as soon as I caught the ball, I saw an opening and I just let it fly. Luckily, it went in." After Wes Johnson missed a 3, Can Ozkaner added a free throw with 1.3 seconds left for Le Moyne and Syracuse had its first preseason exhibition loss since a setback against the Harlem Globetrotters six years ago. "Le Moyne really outplayed us from the beginning of the game to the end," Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said. "They (the Orange) are very, very young mentally. They really have got to grow up. We couldn't stop them on the dribble. That's something we've been looking at in practice." Ekperigin had 20 points and 11 rebounds, Damani Corbin had 11 points and five assists, and Kevin Roth added 10 points for Le Moyne, which outscored Syracuse 42-30 in the paint. Andy Rautins had 13 points and Rick Jackson finished with 10 points and eight rebounds for the Orange, who led 47-37 early in the second half. But the Dolphins, who play across town, never let down. Three 3s by Christopher Johnson helped narrow the gap and a threepoint play by Ekperigin gave Le Moyne a 56-55 lead with 8:41 remaining. The Dolphins, who repeatedly took advantage of Syracuse's man-to-man defense with drives and backdoor cuts, went up 76-71 after Ekperigin converted a lob from Corbin with 57.9 seconds left and held on. "It's very disappointing," said Wes Johnson, in his first season after transferring from Iowa State. "Hopefully, we can learn from this and move in the right direction." "It's just embarrassing the way we played," said Rautins, born and raised in Syracuse. "It's embarrassing to ourselves and our fans. It wasn't luck that they won. They came out and beat us fair and square." Evans said he wasn't really looking forward to reading and watching the news on Wednesday. "I feel bad that the story tomorrow will be, 'What's wrong with Syracuse basketball?' I don't think there's anything wrong," he said. "They've got tremendous players. It's an exhibition game. They're young. They're going to be terrific." Bowling Green beats Buffalo on last-minute TD AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) -- Tyler Sheehan threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Freddie Barnes with 39 seconds left to give Bowling Green a 30-29 victory over Buffalo on Tuesday night. The Falcons (4-5, 3-2 Mid-American Conference) rallied from a 13-point deficit as Sheehan threw two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. He was 22 for 40 for 313 yards and an interception. Willie Geter scored on a pair of 1-yard touchdown runs in the first half for Bowling Green. Jeffvon Gill ran for 172 yards and a touchdown for Buffalo (3-6, 1-4 MAC). Gill, a true freshman, was pressed into his first extensive action after ankle injuries sidelined both Ike Nduka and Mario Henry. nHl Canes assign D Harrison to AHL affiliate RALEIGH (AP) -- The Carolina Hurricanes have assigned defenseman Jay Harrison to their American Hockey League affiliate in Albany. The 27-year-old Harrison had played in 10 of the team's 13 games this year, tallying a goal and two assists. The Hurricanes signed Harrison as a free agent in July. college HoopS Duke's Smith given two-game suspension DURHAM (AP) -- Duke guard Nolan Smith will sit out two games because he played in an unsanctioned summer league. Smith said Tuesday night after the Blue Devils' 84-48 exhibition victory over Findlay that he was suspended because he played a game with overseas players and professionals over the summer near his hometown of Washington, D.C. The junior will miss the opener against North Carolina-Greensboro on Nov. 13 and a game three nights later against Coastal Carolina. He didn't play in the first half against Findlay so his teammates could adjust to playing without him. The Blue Devils already have a thin backcourt -- Smith and senior Jon Scheyer are the only returning guards with significant experience. Smith averaged 8.4 points last season. ap phoTo/GERRy BROOME Tampa trades 2B Iwamura to Pirates By FRED GOODALL ap sporTs WriTer Duke's Kyle Singler drives to the basket as Findlay's Michael Agunga defends during the first half of an exhibition basketball game in Durham Tuesday.

Jon Scheyer added 19 points for the Blue Devils. They shot 41.2 percent, held the defending Division II national champions to 25.3 percent shooting and outscored them 24-4 to open the second half. Brian Zoubek capped that overwhelming burst with a free throw to make it 60-27 with about 12 1/2 minutes to play. Miles Plumlee had 10 rebounds and Singler was 8 for 12 from the field for Duke. The Blue Devils open the regular season Nov. 13 against North Carolina-Greensboro. Marcus Parker scored 14 points to lead the Oilers. nFl Seattle cut ties with Edgerrin James RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- The struggling Seattle Seahawks have released running back Edgerrin James. The Seahawks made the move Tuesday, two days after a lackluster 38-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. James signed with Seattle in late August hoping to revitalize a career that fell flat after moving from Indianapolis to Arizona. In seven games as the backup to Julius Jones, James had just 46 carries for 125 yards and no scores. He averaged just 2.7 yards per carry. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The budget-conscious Tampa Bay Rays saved some money and added some promising bullpen help Tuesday night when they traded infielder Akinori Iwamura to the Pittsburgh Pirates for right-hander Jesse Chavez. The Rays held a $4.85 million option on Iwamura for next season, but did not intend to pick it up because of the depth they have at second base. Iwamura hit .290 with one homer and 22 RBIs in 69 games during the final season of a $7.7 million, three-year contract he signed after playing for the Yakalt Swallows in Japan. He signed with the Rays as a free agent in December 2006. The 30-year-old missed 81 games this season after sustaining partial tears of the anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus in his left knee. Once the Rays determined they were not going to pick up his option for 2010, Friedman listened to offers for a trade. Chavez led Pittsburgh and all major league rookies with 73 appearances in 2009, going 1-4 with a 4.01 ERA in 67 1-3 innings. He was taken in the 42nd round in 2002 by Texas, and made his major league debut with the Pirates with 15 appearances in 2008. JACKETS, from page 1B There are some chances to make up ground, such as No. 3 Alabama hosting No. 9 LSU this weekend. "If we can beat Wake Forest, that will keep us in the mix one more week," the coach said. "If you're in the mix, you've got a chance, because there are going to be people who fall out of the mix every week." The players are moving around with a little extra bounce in their step, which isn't that easy considering they've played nine straight games without an off week. "We've put Georgia Tech on the map," star running back Jonathan Dwyer said. "Now people want to see what we can do next. We know we can go even higher in the polls. As long as we keep doing our job, things will work out for us." Johnson, who made his first big splash as a coach leading Georgia Southern to what was then known as the Division I-AA championship, said he has no idea if his team is good enough to be considered among the best teams in the country. He doesn't put much stock in the poll voters, either. The only fair way to decide the national champion is a playoff, he said, just like the one they have in every other division of the NCAA. "Whoever is picked first to start with, unless they lose, they're going to play in the (BCS championship) game. They pick that before we ever play a game," Johnson said, adding that a playoff "is the best way I know to do it. You find out who's the champion." Assuming Georgia Tech doesn't make a dramatic leap in the last month of the regular season, the Orange Bowl would be quite a consolation prize. The Yellow Jackets haven't played in a major postseason game -- not even 1990, when they claimed a share of the national title -- since traveling to Miami at the end of the 1966 season, the last for coach Bobby Dodd. Forty-three years and nine coaches later, Georgia Tech has again positioned itself to play in one of college football's biggest postseason games.

Zenyatta will break from the No. 4 post in Saturday's 1 1/4-mile race at Santa Anita. She had also been preentered in Friday's $2 million Ladies' Classic, which she won last year. But owners Jerry and Ann Moss, along with trainer John Shirreffs, had a bigger goal in mind for the 5-year-old mare, who has won all four of her starts this year. "There's an opportunity to make history in the Classic, that's why we chose the Classic," Shirreffs said, referring to the fact that no female horse has ever won in the race's 25-year history. Zenyatta will be just the fourth female to run in the Classic. Jolypha had the best result, finishing third in 1992. Azeri was fourth in 2004 and Triptych was sixth in 1986. "I believe she deserves this chance," said Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, who rides Zenyatta. "If she gets her opportunity to run her race and she runs it like I know she can, we might see something pretty incredible." With a victory, Zenyatta would better Personal Ensign's career mark of 13-0 set from 1986-88. That filly retired as the first undefeated champion in American racing in ap phoTo/ChriS CArlSon jockey Mike Smith aboard Zenyatta reacts after winning the ladies' Classic horse race at the Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif. on oct. 24. Zenyatta will compete in this weekend's $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic on Saturday. more than 80 years. "I hope it gets more people interested," Jerry Moss said. "I hope it gets more people watching. I hope they get to appreciate Zenyatta for what she is -- a great, unique, special equine athlete." Missing from America's richest race is Preakness winner Rachel Alexandra, the 3-year-old filly who won all eight of her races this year, including three victories over male competition. Her owner, Jess Jackson, shut her down for the year because he doesn't like Santa Anita's synthetic surface, where his two-time Horse of the Year Curlin faded to fourth in last year's Classic. Zenyatta has won 11 races on synthetic surfaces, including three on Santa Anita's Pro-Ride. Her lone win on traditional dirt came at Oaklawn Park in Arkansas. She will take on a loaded field that includes 12 Grade 1 winners, including Ireland-bred Rip Van Winkle, the 7-2 early second choice, and Summer Bird, the 9-2 third choice who swept the Belmont, Travers and Jockey Club Gold Cup but will test himself on synthetics for the first time. "He's handled this from day one when we first brought him out over the racetrack," said Tim Ice, who trains Summer Bird. "He's feeling out-of-thisworld. He's coming into this race as good as he's come into any race." Rip Van Winkle will try to give Europe a second straight win in the Classic, where Raven's Pass triumphed last year and European horse Henrythenavigator finished second. Mine That Bird, winless in four races since his stunning upset in the Kentucky Derby, was listed at 12-1, along with six other horses. Trainer Chip Woolley Jr. shrugged off his colt's long shot status, saying, "He won the Derby at 50-1." Trainer Bob Baffert, who will saddle Pacific Classic winner Richard's Kid, saluted the Mosses for giving Zenyatta a shot at the boys. "That's pretty gutsy," he said. "That's what our sport needs. We need a big boost right now and she's going to be our boost. Rachel (Alexandra) carried us to a certain point and this mare is going to the rest of the way." The 14 races to be run Friday and Saturday for the second consecutive year at Santa Anita are worth $25.5 million. A total of 149 horses were entered, including 30 from Europe. Without Zenyatta, the Ladies' Classic attracted a field of eight, led by early 9-5 favorite Music Note. Baffert will try to repeat in the $2 million Juvenile, where his colt Lookin at Lucky was installed as the 8-5 early favorite. He won a year ago with Midshipman. The Hall of Fame trainer also has the morning line favorite in the $2 million Sprint with Zensational, who drew the No. 1 post and is listed at 7-5. Baffert is going for his third consecutive win in the six-furlong race. Ireland-bred Goldikova is back to defend her title in the Mile on the turf as the early 8-5 favorite. Two other Ireland-breds are favorites in their races. Mastercraftsman is the 6-5 choice in the Dirt Mile, while Conduit is listed at 7-5 in the Turf. Ventura is the defending champion and 8-5 early favorite in the Filly & Mare Sprint for ailing Hall of Fame trainer Bobby Frankel, who has been away from his stable most of the year because of an undisclosed illness. ap phoTo/The Daily progress, Andrew Shurtleff duke's danny Parker (88) watches as teammate duke cornerback leon wright misses a pass while defended by Virginia wide receiver Kris Burd during Saturday's game in Charlottesville, Va. DUKE, from page 1B Duke's offense humming along as the league's top passing attack. But the offense can't always be great, such as when it failed to score a touchdown against Virginia until the final 4 minutes. Yet Duke still was in position to win thanks to a defense that didn't let Virginia get too far ahead. "That's the sign of a good football team, that you're clicking on all cylinders," Lewis said. "You have faith in each and every unit. Good football teams obviously have to do everything well. You can't be one-dimensional and have a shootout every game." WEST, from page 1B Noah Croom, did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment. West has been treated in the past for bipolar disorder, and last week his wife filed a domestic violence report against him in Ohio. No charges have been filed. West, who could still face a league suspension over the charges in Maryland, made his season debut during Saturday night's 90-79 win against Charlotte, scoring 13 points in 24 minutes. He was expected to play in Tuesday night's game against Washington. Cavaliers general manager Danny Ferry, who along with team doctors has been handling West's delicate state on a daily basis, issued a statement following the release of the new charges against West. "It is our understanding that today's developments are part of the legal process that continues to take place with Delonte and he and his legal counsel will handle that," Ferry said. "We will continue to take this matter very seriously and monitor and respect the legal process as it proceeds, but not speculate or comment about it." Cavs coach Mike Brown didn't want to speculate on the possibility of West doing jail time. "I believe in the process, I'm going to let it unfold and go from there," Brown said.

Andrews, 68, and his wife Diane will remain in Tallahassee where they are helping raise three grandchildren after the sudden, unexpected death of their son Ronnie two years ago.

West, who lives in Brandywine, Md., was riding a three-wheel motorcycle when he cut off a police officer on the beltway in Upper Marlboro, authorities said. The officer pulled him over, and the weapons were discovered. Prince George's County State's Attorney Glenn Ivey said West will likely be arraigned by the end of the week, and the case could go to trial early next year. ------ AP Sports Writer Tom Withers in Cleveland contributed to this report. UTLEY, from page 1B Coming in, Utley didn't have a hit in the Series off any pitcher except CC Sabathia. He had an RBI double and three solo homers off the big lefty, including two in the opener. Trying to become the seventh team to ever rally from a 3-1 deficit in the World Series, the Phillies forced the first Game 6 since the Florida Marlins beat the Yankees in six in 2003. The Series resumes in New York on Wednesday night. The defending champs weren't going to let the Yankees celebrate in their house. With Cliff Lee on the mound, it didn't seem the Phillies would need many runs. Lee had been dominant in the postseason, coming in with a dazzling 0.54 ERA in four starts. Pitching on regular rest, Lee didn't have his best stuff. He allowed five runs in seven-plus innings, but the offense bailed him out and the left-hander improved to 4-0 in the playoffs. If the Phillies force a seventh game, Lee could be out there again on just two days' rest Thursday. It would be his turn to throw a side session, and Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said he'll consider using him for a few innings. "I'm available," Lee said. Raul Ibanez, who was just 3 for 16 in the Series, hit a solo homer and RBI single. Jimmy Rollins had two hits and Jayson Werth had a key RBI single and was robbed of extra bases by center fielder Brett Gardner. After New York jumped to a 1-0 lead on a RBI double by Alex Rodriguez in the first, the Phils answered in their half. Rollins led off with a single and Victorino took a fastball off his hand after squaring to bunt. Victorino went down in pain, but got up and stayed in until the eighth. X-rays on his finger were negative and Victorino said he was OK. Utley hit Burnett's next pitch -- a 94 mph fastball -- over the right-field fence to give the Phillies a 3-1 lead. He circled the bases so quickly that he rounded third before Rollins and Victorino had even crossed the plate. "He don't like for you to say a whole lot of things about him," Manuel said. "But he's one of the most prepared, one of the most dedicated, he has the most desire and passion to play the game that I've ever been around. I used to say Kirby Puckett was my favorite player. The only thing Kirby might have on Chase is he's more flamboyant because he smiles a lot, and Chase is a little bit different. He's quiet and he goes about his business in a real good way." Utley got things going in the third with a leadoff walk. Werth lined an RBI single and Ibanez singled in another run, chasing Burnett. Burnett pitched a gem against the Phillies in Game 2, allowing one run and four hits in seven innings of a 3-1 victory. He frustrated Philadelphia with a biting curveball and many hitters took first-pitch strikes. The Phillies came out swinging this time.

W L HIGH GAME SCRATCH Season To Date Team Achievements TRANSACTIONS CMYK Section c Wednesday, november 4, 2009 Good TasTe I FAMILY FEATURES At home t can be tough to maintain healthy eating habits and a hectic schedule. But one little ingredient can add great flavor and keep you energized for the busy day ahead. With seven grams per serving, peanuts have more protein than any other nut. Protein provides long-lasting energy -- just what you need to keep going throughout the day. Peanuts and peanut butter contribute more than 30 nutrients and phytonutrients and can be part of a balanced diet that promotes good health. In addition, foods low on the glycemic index (GI), such as peanuts, are good choices for people trying to watch their blood sugar. Eating foods with a low GI score (peanuts score a 14) may lead to a slow increase in blood sugar levels, causing less insulin to be released all at once, and thus avoiding the sugar "crash." The National Peanut Board has some tips to show you how to add energy-boosting USA-grown peanuts to your daily diet. Involve your children in meal planning and preparation so they can learn about healthy eating habits and good nutrition. Experiment with kid-friendly recipes, such as Flag-Waving Peanut Butter Cookies and PB&J French "Toastwich," which can be found at nationalpeanutboard.org. Keep a can of peanuts handy to munch on while working around the house, reading with your children or watching television. Make a batch of Munch 'N' Go Mix -- a quick trail mix with dried fruit, peanuts and chocolate -- to keep on hand. Put single servings into resealable plastic bags and you have a great, on-the-go snack ready all the time. Ask your place of employment to provide peanuts as a snack option -- they'll keep your energy up to get more accomplished. Keep a jar of peanut butter and a spoon in your desk drawer for midday cravings. For something new and different, try one of the many flavored peanut butters on the market. Be on the lookout for the many delicious peanut/peanut butter menu items now available at some of your favorite restaurants in appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts. More than 1,000 new products with peanuts or peanut butter have been created during the past five years. Have you found a favorite yet? Store a pack of peanuts and a jar of peanut butter in the glove box for a crunchy and satisfying treat. Stop by a roadside stand or produce market and buy some homemade roasted or boiled peanuts -- you can even make them at home. Two-ounce peanut butter travel packs from companies such as Sunland and Jif are easy-to-pack, portion-controlled snacks for travel. Try pairing them with freshly sliced fruit and vegetables. Dazzling Chocolate Peanut Butter Dip Makes 4 servings (each serving = 3 tablespoons dip and 1 cup fruit/veggies) 1/3 cup low-fat plain yogurt 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter 1 teaspoon chocolate or colored sprinkles 4 cups fresh fruit and vegetables cut in "dip-able" shapes (carrots sticks, sliced cucumbers, celery sticks, sliced apples and pears.) In a standing mixing bowl, mix yogurt and chocolate syrup on medium speed until well blended. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave the peanut butter at 70% power for about 1 minute or until melted; stir half-way through. Pour peanut butter into chocolate yogurt mixture and mix until smooth. For each serving, spoon 3 tablespoons dip into a small serving cup and sprinkle with sprinkles. Serve with one cup of fresh fruit and/or vegetables. Note: This dip may also be served with pretzels or spread on graham crackers.

Few will agree with your ideas today, but that doesn't matter. It's not the number of votes but the weight of those votes that will make a difference. One devoted partner will be enough. Together you'll change the world. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You're trying to do something that requires a great deal of power. Remember that you don't have to make it happen in a single burst. Use time as a tool. Even something as soft as water can crumble a mountain. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Forgiving means forgetting. There is no forgiveness where there is still memory of the wrong done to you, because as long as you recall, a piece of you is still holding out. When you pardon someone, do it all the way. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your stars align to create powerful momentum. Now that you've got the ball rolling, make sure it keeps going the right way. Keep your eye on the goal. A coach (ideally a Taurus) will help you stay on track. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). In life, you can either act or react. Today, be an actor -- you'll have consistently better results. Think about what you want to happen, and align your efforts accordingly. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Jane Austen said, "We all love to instruct, though we can teach only what is not worth knowing." That's why you wisely choose to teach by example. And more people are watching than you think. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Go out and you'll have a blast. Social gatherings are a stage on which you can show off your exquisite taste. Be bold, for your place at the table of the aesthetically inclined is assured. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A friend relates curious news. There may be an opportunity for you in this juicy nugget. Don't jump to conclusions, but take a moment to think about where you'd like this to go. The situation is malleable. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Taking a chance on love doesn't have to mean buying flowers for a co-worker or saying yes to a blind date. It could be something as simple as returning a smile. Tonight brings communication from afar. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will be tempted to feel jealous of a friend's success. Resist it. Instead, take your friend's good fortune as a sign that your turn is coming up. And keep getting ready to embrace your destiny. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Read the omens. If someone is difficult to get ahold of now, he or she will be difficult to get ahold of later, too. Leave a situation that has no sense of flow to find a better match. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The past isn't over. You'll get the chance to right a past wrong. You'll either be forgiving someone or asking to be forgiven. Completing this cycle puts you in touch with divine energy.
