HOUSE DESTROYED BY FIRE

DEATHS

The sprawling wood-frame home belonging to David and Vanessa Baynard on Harris-Holly Springs Road was destroyed by fire Friday afternoon. S-D-O’s Alan Greene puts water in the attic area as other firefighters stand by. In addition to S-D-O, Sandy Mush, Cliffside and Chesnee responded to the fire that was brought under control about 40 minutes after their arrival. Cause of the fire is not known. The home was heated by a wood stove but the family didn’t believe it was hot when they left for work on Friday. James Bolyard, who lives on Chase High Road, spotted the smoke and stopped to make sure no one was in the house by kicking in the door. Baynard’s daughter said her father lost his dog in the fire.

And the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed.

R.S.V. James 5:1a5-16 Those suffering with illness or injury are often doubly afflicted, suffering the primary pain or discomfort of their illness or injury as well as the secondary pain of being isolated or cut off from normal human contact. When we know of someone who is sick or injured, one of the first things that we can do to establish contact is to send them a card or a brief note to simply let them know that we are thinking of them and that we care. Then, find out if they want to have visitors, and when it would be convenient for us to visit. Before visiting, ask if there is anything that they need, and when we visit, consider bringing a small gift, such as a magazine or the newspaper. During our visit, especially if it is crowded or there are others waiting to see them, we should not stay too long. In addition, we should not be afraid to talk about the person’s illness or injury, unless they signal that they would rather not talk about it. If they are in the hospital for a long time, we could visit them periodically and we should not forget about them after they go home. Like every corporal work of mercy, visiting the sick is about attending to the needs of those less fortunate than us, so we should be attentive to those needs, and ask the person what they need. Finally, pray for the sick, and even offer to pray a short prayer with the Oak Springs Baptist Church sick person.

Four charged with 77 motor vehicle break-ins From staff reports

RUTHERFORDTON — Three teen-agers and a man in his early 20s are facing a total of 77 charges in connection with motor vehicle breakins in Rutherford County. The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office reported that the charges have been filed over about the past 30 days. Jordan Paul Wilson, 19, of 541 Oak Springs Rd., Ruth, is charged with 26 counts of breaking and/or entering of motor vehicles and larceny. He is still in custody at the Rutherford County Jail under a $355,000 secured bond. Steven Brent Mooney, 22, of 262 Chatham Ave., Lot 1R, Rutherfordton, is charged with 22 counts of those two offenses. He is still in custody under a $350,000 secured bond.

Carolina Today Sex-toy study questioned

DURHAM (AP) — A sex-toy study at Duke University has raised some eyebrows in the campus religious community. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Friday that the director of the Duke Catholic Center has lodged a complaint with researchers. The Rev. Joe Vetter says the study doesn’t promote relationships. The study asks female students over age 18 to attend the events that are similar to Tupperware parties but only with erotic toys, lingerie and games. The women complete surveys about their sexual attitudes before and after the parties and get product discounts. A spokesman for Duke said the sextoy party project went through the peer review process. Vetter says he plans to discuss the topic at Sunday mass.

Marine arrested in death

CAMP LEJEUNE(AP) — A North Carolina Marine was arrested Friday in the death of a fellow Marine at Camp Lejeune. Pvt. Jonathan Law, 21, was in military custody after a homicide about 1 a.m. Friday, according to Capt. Timothy Patrick, a Marine Corps spokesman. The body was found in the woods, but officials did not release the name of the victim. Officials said a firearm wasn’t used in the killing, but did not say how the Marine died. The base said information about the victim will be made available after the slain Marine’s family has been notified. Law was in serious condition at Pitt Memorial Hospital in Greenville for self-inflicted wounds, Patrick said. Law is a supply administration

Court affirms sentence RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A federal appeals court has upheld a 20-year prison sentence for a former North Carolina teacher convicted of taking children out of state to have sex with them. Jimmie Grubbs, who taught at a Huntersville middle school, pleaded guilty to 12 counts in 2006. He did not appeal his conviction but claimed his sentence was excessive. A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday rejected Grubbs’ argument that a judge improperly lengthened his sentence for additional offenses for which he hadn’t been convicted. The court said a sentencing judge can consider “uncharged conduct” that’s proven by a preponderance of the evidence. Investigators believed Grubbs, now 69, may have sexually assaulted as many as 15 minors on campus and during trips to South Carolina between 2002 and 2006.

Woman gets life sentence UNION, S.C. (AP) — A South Carolina woman who held down her husband’s high school cheerleader girlfriend as he stabbed her to death to prove his love was sentenced Friday to life without parole. Yolanda Thompson cried and asked the victim’s family for forgiveness before she was handed the same sentence as her husband, Pernell, for killing 16-year-old Marisha Jeter in January 2008. Pernell Thompson was a former football player for Wingate University in Wingate, N.C.

Solons mull session on inmate issue

RALEIGH (AP) — Gov. Beverly Perdue says she hopes she doesn’t have to recall North Carolina lawmakers to settle a dispute over whether 27 inmates can be released from prison. But WRAL-TV reports Friday that Perdue’s staff is working on legislation, just in case. The North Carolina Supreme Court ruled last month in favor of a prisoner who argued a 1970s state law defined a life sentence as 80 years. Court arguments are expected on Perdue’s challenge to the case in the next month.

A special session would cost North Carolina taxpayers about $50,000 a day.

ber with no response, but in fact (received) a busy signal each time we called,” Chance said. “We finally left a message on the voice mail at the home. From there, we are investigating the events that took place on our end.” The police department’s standard operational guideline for handling abandoned 911 calls states: “Remember, when doubt exists on whether to send a unit or not — send it!” Chance did not respond to questions about whether the police department was equipped with an enhanced 911 communications system, which automatically captures a caller’s number and address, as well as the closest police unit that can respond. Chance said officers were ordered to the scene nine minutes before a second 911 call at 8:01 p.m. from a man who identified himself as John Fox reporting bodies and blood visible through a window. The family obituaries identify John Fox as the father of Maxwell’s wife, Kathryn. Chance did not say when officers arrived at the scene. Police said Maxwell shot and killed his wife, Kathryn, 43, and their two teenage children. The parents’ bodies were found in the kitchen of their upscale home, along with that of their son, 15-year-old Cameron; daughter Connor, 17, was found in an upstairs bedroom. While the delayed police response may be embarrassing, officers are duty-bound to protect the general public from crime rather than thwarting specific incidents, said Jeff Welty, a professor at the University of North Carolina School of Government who works with attorneys for police departments.

N.C. stimulus spending criticized

RALEIGH (AP) — Critics of North Carolina’s plan to spend thousands in federal stimulus money to send consultants to a workshop say the funds would be better spent on subsidizing child care for struggling families. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Friday that child development experts say the state’s waiting list for subsidized child care has

reached a record high of 41,000. The state’s budget for subsidizing child care was slashed by $35 million this year. Sending the consultants to the conference will cost $140,000. Sixteen lead child care consultants will be sent to San Diego in January and July for intensive training on infant and toddler development.

SAVING WITH THE COUPON QUEEN Jill Cataldo saves hundreds on groceries by making the cost of the common coupon count. You can, too.

Readers Write: Stockpiling and Internet Coupon Fraud

JILL CATALDO

It’s time to answer some questions from readers like you who are learning to Super-Coupon: Q: I read your column about stockpiling groceries that you find on sale. How much do I need to buy at one time of something to stockpile it? I’m not comfortable doing bulk buying. A: “Stockpiling” is a term that many coupon enthusiasts use to refer to the practice of buying ahead of schedule. When we stockpile, we attempt to beat the stores at their own pricing games by buying enough of an item to sustain our household’s needs until the next time that item goes on sale. It doesn’t necessarily refer to bulk buying but rather just buying more than you immediately need. If an item is nonperishable or has a long shelf life, buy as many of that item as you have coupons for. Add them to your stockpile, and use them over the next few weeks instead of running to the store for that item. Here’s an example. If pasta sauce is on sale for $1.29, and I have six 75-cent coupons, I will buy six jars of sauce and pay just 54 cents a jar. While my immediate needs for this week’s meal would only include one jar, the price of the pasta sauce will likely be back up to $2.99 next week. When I decide to make pasta again, I can go down to my pantry and get another jar, which I bought at 54 cents. I don’t need to go to the grocery store and pay full price, because I bought a little more than I needed last week when it was on sale. When you think about doing this on a larger scale with everything we buy, it’s easy to see how we can save in the long term. It’s not bulk buying so much as it is buying just a little more than we need in the short term. You will become comfortable with “shopping at home” for those items from your own pantry versus running to the store and paying that higher price. Stockpiling teaches you to shop on a price-based basis versus a needs-based basis. Q: One of my local grocery stores will not accept Internet coupons. Why wouldn’t a store take them? Should I be wary of using them? A: While most stores accept Internet coupons, it’s true that some do not. Counterfeit coupons have always been a problem for stores. With the advent of the Internet, new problems have arisen, especially when counterfeiters make realistic-looking coupons and post them online. If many people print and redeem the fake coupons, stores lose money because they cannot redeem the fakes with the manufacturer. To avoid these issues, some stores have issued a blanket No Internet Coupons policy. Do you need to be afraid of using Internet coupons? Not at all. There are hundreds of legitimate coupons available on the Internet every day. To know whether or not an Internet coupon is legitimate, look to see where the coupon originates. If it is posted on a manufacturer or store Web site, it’s legitimate and perfectly fine to use. If it is posted on someone’s personal site or a file-sharing site, you have no way to verify its origin, so you shouldn’t use it. If you’re looking on manufacturers’ sites for coupons in the first place, you won’t come across any coupons that are fraudulent. It’s important to note, too, that you cannot make a photocopy of a coupon that you printed from the Internet, a common misconception among new coupon users. Some people assume that because it printed from their printer they can copy it and make as many as they would like. But can you copy a dollar bill? No. And you can’t copy a coupon, either. Internet coupons have unique serial numbers and bar codes. While you might get away with passing photocopies at your store, your store will ultimately pay the price when they go to redeem them, since they’ll only get credit for one coupon with that serial number.

Our Views More attempts to aid economy

O

nce again, the federal government is pumping money into the economy by extending the homebuyers’ tax credit and unemployment benefits for the jobless. President Obama signed the $24 billion stimulus legislation on Friday. On the day the government estimate of unemployment topped 10 percent, the county’s jobless received eligibility for another 14 weeks of jobless pay. It is now possible for a person who loses a job to received as much as 99 weeks of unemployment benefits, the most in history. The homebuyers’ credit extension will give a jolt to the housing industry. It also loosens the qualifications to receive the tax credit. Both these programs are designed to help bridge the gap as our economy revives from the worst recession in modern history. Only time will tell if the “bridge” will extend to prosperity.

Just a couple of observations on the Nov 5 article regarding our county’s taxes and spending: n There is no mention of the county’s debt going from $30 million in 2002 to $70 million in 2009. n Total value of properties in our county in 2002 was $3 billion. The county debt report shows this number constantly increasing to now being $6 billion in 2009. Compare that to the value of real estate in the real world. n We can claim that we are reducing the property tax rate. However, since the county is allowed to decide what our properties are worth for taxation purposes, it becomes sort of a game. A 1 percent tax rate on a $100,000 property is $1,000. A 0.5 percent tax rate on a $200,000 property is $1,000. Saying that you are decreasing the tax rate to 0.5 percent while at the same time you increase the property taxable value to $200,000, may sound good , but the bottom line is the tax payer is still burdened with a $1,000 tax bill. Don’t ignore the fact that we have doubled our county debt in seven years. It can only be paid back with tax money, and onehalf of our county’s tax income comes from property taxes. The only way the county will collect the money to pay this debt is either by increasing the tax rates, or by increasing the prop-

erty tax valuation. The 3-year property tax refund incentive scenario is also interesting... It recognizes that lower taxes attract businesses, however it doesn’t recognize that lower taxes would be beneficial to all businesses all the time... not just new companies for three years... A sound fiscal operation would have a real plan to eliminate debt (which would reduce the county’s budget by $8 million per year), eliminate use of tax money for speculation and eliminate all frivolous spending at the county level. That type of fiscal operation would actually bring the county to spending levels which can be supported by income from nonproperty tax collections (only one-half of the county’s $60 million annual spending is funded by property taxes). Then, we will truly be competitive, by eliminating the need for a property tax, which would provide a real, permanent incentive for businesses to look at Rutherford county as the best place in N.C. Anything else is just a way to keep accumulating power and control at the government level. Zoran Naskov Rutherfordton

Calls on county for a parks ordinance To the editor: I found the report on the county commissioners’ meeting in The Daily Courier very interesting. Especially the part about an ordinance that would allow the

residents of Moss Drive to operate golf carts on county roads. And, according to Jerry Stensland, who works in the parks and recreation department, there is no ordinance to regulate what is allowed and what is not allowed in the public use of parks in Rutherford County. Maybe the county commissioners should think about writing a park ordinance. Also the commissioners should think about making an amendment to the water shed ordinance. An amendment that really would protect the streams and rivers, the raw sources of all drinking water. An amendment that would also protect the property owners who live in a watershed area. Come on, let’s get serious, if you are going to write an ordinance for golf carts, surely you as commissioners can do something that would be more beneficial to all the citizens of Rutherford County.

This election sends number of mixed signals

RALEIGH – The 2009 election cycle is a prime example of how political trends are sometimes hard to spot when they’re approaching, hard to describe when they arrive, and hard to flag when they’ve run their course. Around the country, conservatives and Republicans were jubilant about the outcome of two gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey watched closely this year for signs of a GOP resurgence. But the story was a bit more muddled here in North Carolina. Back in the 1990s, Republican gains in legislative and congressional seats were preceded by Republican or conservative successes in municipal politics. It wasn’t just current GOP state chairman Tom Fetzer’s win for Raleigh mayor in 1993 that signified the trend. Republicans also did well in other cities. By the late 1990s, there were Republican mayors in Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Durham, and Wilmington.

John Hood Syndicated columnist

Greensboro’s mayor was the only one to remain Democratic throughout the period. The 2009 balloting yields a strikingly different picture. Democrat Anthony Foxx defeated Republican John Lassiter Tuesday in the race to replace Pat McCrory as mayor of Charlotte. Since McCrory was the only GOP mayor of a large NC city going into Tuesday, you’d think that would complete a Democratic sweep of all the top mayoral posts. But in Greensboro, of all places, the incumbent Democratic mayor Yvonne Johnson fell to Republican challenger Bill Knight, who ran on a fiscally conservative platform. Republicans also now have a majority of seats on the

Greensboro City Council. North Carolinians on the right side of the political spectrum had another significant election victory to celebrate on Tuesday. In Wake County, the voters ratified the conservative takeover of the school board by giving John Tedesco the last of the four seats up for grabs this year. A majority on the board now favors getting rid of the school system’s unpopular and unsuccessful combination of forced busing, mandatory year-round schooling, and bureaucratic arrogance. Republicans also won a number of contested mayoral and council races in smaller communities across the state. But they don’t typically draw the media attention that the big-city races do. The only countywide tax referenda I’ve seen so far also produced a mixed picture: a sales-tax hike passed in Lee County by a significant margin but failed in next-door Harnett County by a significant margin. So what are we to make of

all this? Well, the national story is pretty clear. In most of the key contests around the country (the special election in New York’s House 23 went Democratic, but only after a bruising and confusing split within the local GOP), Republicans were far more motivated to turn out than Democrats, which is to be expected after two cycles of being walloped and nearly a year of watching left-wing government in action in Washington. These things do, indeed, go in cycles. Democrats got riled up after losing a 2004 presidential election they thought they’d win, and got busy electing Democrats to local, district, and state offices in 2005 and 2006. Now, it’s the Republicans who are staging a comeback. On the other hand, economic worries and a popular backlash against Obama’s fiscal and health care policies can only put Republican candidates in a position to win close contests, by giving them a tailwind. There

are no guarantees. Against that wind, the Democrats took the Charlotte mayor’s race for the first time since Harvey Gantt lost his reelection bid to Sue Myrick in 1987. In the Queen City, which went solidly for blue candidates in the 2008 cycle as well, Democrats are encouraged and excited, not worried. Their candidate ran a better campaign — as did Greensboro’s new mayor, the conservative Knight. All in all, it was an interesting and often exciting election cycle. Charlotte turned left, Greensboro turned right. But now starts the Big One — the 2010 election cycle for federal and state offices. The stakes couldn’t be higher, with redistricting to follow in 2011 and President Obama’s agenda still largely on the drawing board. Candidate filing here in North Carolina starts in February. Politics takes few vacations. Hood is president of the John Locke Foundation and publisher of CarolinaJournal.com.

Sheriff’s deputies blocked traffic in front of R-S Central High School for more than three hours Friday after a bomb threat shut down the campus and forced students and teachers to evacuate.

School gets bomb threat By SCOTT BAUGHMAN Daily Courier Staff Writer

RUTHERFORDTON — Students and faculty evacuated R-S Central High School Friday after a bomb threat shut down the school. No explosives were found after a search of the building. An anonymous bomb threat was called into the school at 12:23 p.m. Administrators quickly called 9-1-1 and the first Rutherford County Sheriff’s Deputy was on the scene at 12:29 p.m. “We were able to get officers here quickly after the initial call,” said Chief Deputy Jeff Buchanan. “In talking with the school principal and Superintendent John Kinlaw, we decided to evacuate the school before our initial search.” Students with work release passes were allowed to leave

the school early as normal, and students were formally dismissed at 2 p.m. Public address announcements blared from the school almost every five minutes on Friday afternoon, reminding students to wait for their ride or make their way quickly and orderly to school buses. Buses arrived at 2:30 p.m. and loaded up all at once. “Upon first arriving we searched the football stadium first to make sure that area was secured,” Buchanan said. “Once we knew it was safe, we evacuated students to that location so we could keep them all in the same place. Parents were then allowed to come and pick up their students.” Parents were asked to avoid driving north on U.S. 221 and instead approach the school from U.S. 64/74 and the rear of the campus.

Police Notes Deputy involved in auto accident

CAROLEEN — No one was seriously injured in a twovehicle wreck involving a Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office deputy Friday afternoon. Deputy Brian Atkins was traveling south on U.S. 221A in a 2007 Dodge Charger and was attempting to turn left onto Cooper Line Road when a 2010 Kia driven by Justin Michael Wilson, 21, of 155 Brown Lane, Ellenboro, came around a curve traveling north and the two vehicles collided at about 12:30 p.m.

North Carolina State Highway Patrol Sgt. D.K. Owens, who investigated the wreck, said the vehicles collided nearly head-on in the northbound lane, but added that because both drivers were slowing down to avoid a collision, the impact occurred at about 25 mph. Deputy Atkins was transported to Rutherford Hospital, where he was treated and released. Two people were in the Wilson vehicle; neither was injured. Trooper Owens said no charges were filed in the collision.

“We did have an SBI (State Bureau of Investigations) agent on standby with a bomb-sniffing dog,” Buchanan said. “And we had contacted Hendersonville County to ask them to be ready to respond because they have a bomb squad.” There were no specifics in the bomb threat call. “Someone just called the front office and said, ‘I’m going to blow up the school’ and didn’t give any indication of a location for the bomb or materials,” Buchanan said. “We treated it as a serious situation. I want to commend the school staff because they handled a safe and orderly evacuation allowing us one hour and 30 minutes for our initial sweep of the school.”

Gerald Jack PARIS, Texas (AP) — Gerald Jack, former University of Alabama assistant athletic director whom former Alabama football coach Gene Stallings called his “right-hand man,” has died in Paris. Family funeral director Arvin Starrett says the 74-year-old Paris native died Thursday night at Paris Regional Medical after a long illness. Jack launched his athletic career as a high school football coach in Paris and other Texas and Alabama schools before joining Stallings, his lifelong friend and fellow Paris native, at Alabama in 1990. Stallings told The Paris News Friday that Jack was “the best friend I ever had.” Jack started as an assistant coach with the Crimson Tide and rose to assistant athletic director under head football coach and athletic director Stallings. He retired in 1997. Stewart Ledbetter BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — A former U.S. Senate candidate who once served as Vermont’s banking and insurance commissioner has died. Stewart Ledbetter died Thursday. He was 76. Ledbetter served in the administration of Gov. Richard Snelling and won the Republican nomination to challenge U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., in 1980. He lost in a close race.

Not knowing what might be taking place, Brian said he wasn’t unusually alarmed since emergency tones are often set off at the post from time to time. But, inside, the Marlowes saw on television the horrors of the shooting. Marlowe’s immediate buddies were not in harm’s way and all soldiers were accounted for. “It was pretty scary for several hours, but a far as I know, none of my buddies were shot. We don’t know for sure yet, but from what we’ve heard from the chain of command, all are accounted for,” Brian said. “We appreciate the thoughts and prayers that went out to all of us,” Brian said. “It will be very sad for days until we figure out what this guy’s deal was,” Brian continued.

Brian has been in the Army three years and expects to be deployed about eight months. His unit has already deployed. “Yes, I dread it,” he said. “And no. I don’t want to leave my family behind, and there is definitely a feeling of dread as far as that goes, but a lot of soldiers have been there for a long time and have been numerous times. I know guys who have been there four or five times. They need a break and I don’t think they should have to go back,” Brian added. “I’m new in the Army, but I want to get over there and help them out and let them be home with their families.” Brian hopes his wife and daughter will be able to come back home to Rutherford County during his deployment. “We are working on that aspect now,” he added.

Sam Marlowe received a telephone call from Sam Jr. Thursday afternoon. “He had been doing driver’s education and heard the news on the radio,” Marlowe said. “Then his wife called and said it was all over the news. “I turned on CNN and about 30 minutes later Patti called to say they were all OK. “She told me the sirens were going off, that there was a lockdown and that everyone got inside, turned off the heat and air conditioners and shut all the windows and doors,” Marlowe continued. “When Sam called, I was pretty scared,” the elder Marlowe said. “I’ve been pretty nervous about his going to Afghanistan, but I know he’s in the Lord’s hand. I know the Lord is going to take care of him, and I pray for him every day. I am terrified for him to go over there now, and all this stuff coming up, too. I don’t know if he’s going to get killed before he leaves,” Marlow said. Sam said Brian had gone into the same medical building on Wednesday to have a small pox vaccine rechecked before his deployment. Sam Sr. didn’t fly out to Texas with

Forest City Owls Booster Club formed FOREST CITY — The Forest City Owls Booster Club was officially formed Thursday October 15 with Cecil Geer named President. The Booster Club is a fan organization aimed at elevating the support of the Owls baseball team. The next meeting is scheduled for Thursday Nov. 12, at 6 p.m. at Hickory Log Barbecue. Membership dues are $25. Anyone who is interested may attend. The Booster Club was organized by a group of fans dedicated to improving the support of the Owls. Plans include entering a float in the Forest City and Rutherfordton-Spindale Christmas parades, welcoming college teams to Rutherford County when they play at McNair Field, greeting Owls players when they first arrive in Forest City and help make them feel at home throughout the season. The Booster Club will also plan trips to road games, organize post game meals and off day activities for the team, and work with the Owls front office to reach the organization and the club’s goals. “We have one of the most dedicated and supportive fan bases in all of baseball, and the Booster Club will allow our fans to come together and be more organized in their efforts. I can’t wait to see what ideas they come up with for this summer. I think it is a great idea” said Owls general manager James Wolfe. The Booster Club will meet monthly to discuss ideas and plan club events.

Cavs edge Trojans in OT By SCOTT BOWERS Daily Courier Sports Editor

FOREST CITY — In the world of high school football, the East Rutherford-Chase game was never going to garner the attention heaped upon other contests around the state. But, snap-for-snap, Friday night’s rivalry game between the two south-side Rutherford County programs was worth every penny of admission. The Cavaliers (4-9, 2-4) came away with a 23-17 win in overtime. The win should allow the Cavs to advance into the NCHSAA 2A Playoffs which begin next Friday night. The Trojans (2-9, 0-6) were clinging to slim postseason hopes, but Chase forced East Rutherford into an extra quarter just one week after East had done the same to the Shelby Golden Lions. East Rutherford’s Mikhail Baxter, on a 3rd and goal from the 25-yard line, found O’Darren Wilkins all alone in the end zone to lift the Cavs to a 23-17 lead in overtime. Chase’s Tyreece Gossett, on the ensuing Trojans’ possession, and with Chase needing a touchdown and an extra point to win, had his

Blue Devils, Tar Heels meet in key game CHAPEL HILL (AP) — Thad Lewis takes every snap recognizing that the defense in front of him knows exactly what’s coming. Yet Duke’s senior quarterback and his fleet of receivers keep racking up yards through the air. It’s a big reason why the Blue Devils are flirting with bowl eligibility. And if North Carolina wants to inch closer to a possible bowl itself, the Tar Heels’ touted defense will have to stop Lewis in Saturday’s rivalry game. Lewis rolled through October, racking up four straight 300-yard games and directing the Blue Devils (5-3, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) to three straight victories — their lon-

gest streak since the 1994 season that ended with their last bowl game. He’s made seemingly every right read, showed strong pocket presence against the rush and has spread the ball around to receivers Donovan Varner, Austin Kelly and Conner Vernon. “You get better at what you do every day,” Lewis said. “One thing we know we’re going to do is throw the football, so we try to get better and better at that. It’s not seeing where the receivers are going, it’s knowing where they should be and seeing the defenders and throwing the ball to certain spots. We practice the routes constantly-

constantly-constantly, so in the back of your mind during a game you know where they should be.” The numbers are impressive. Playing in coach David Cutcliffe’s passing attack for a second season, he’s averaging 383 yards passing in the past four games with 10 touchdown passes against just two interceptions — a streak that has his confidence, he admits, “through the roof.” Cutcliffe, who groomed both Peyton and Eli Manning in college, has noticed Lewis’ leap. “It takes confidence as a quarterback

Tiger pushes for share of lead By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

SHANGHAI — The gallery kept growing until it stretched along all 603 yards of the eighth hole at Sheshan International. It took a little longer before Tiger Woods gave them what they came to see Friday in the HSBC Champions. Losing patience with each missed putt, Woods finally knocked in a 10-foot birdie on the ninth hole and was on his way. With five birdies over the final 10 holes, he pieced together another 5-under 67 and surged into a share of the 36-hole lead with Nick Watney in a World Golf Championship that had a distinctive American flavor. Seven of the top nine players on the leaderboard are from the United States.

Far more tantalizing going into the weekend was Woods and Phil Mickelson, who ended their PGA Tour season with a compelling battle in Atlanta, going at it again halfway around the world in China. Woods missed six birdie chances inside 20 feet and was growing increasingly agitated until one putt on the ninth changed his outlook. “It certainly was a little bit frustrating, but the guys weren’t running off and hiding, either,” Woods said. “I knew if

Tiger Woods reacts after a birdie putt on the 16th green at the HSBC Champions golf tournament in Shanghai, China, Friday. Woods finished the second day with the score 10 under with co-leader compatriot Nick Watney.

I could just play the back nine at 3-under par ... I figured that would probably be a pretty good number. And I did a couple better than that.” Mickelson chipped in for birdie on the 15th, then recovered from a poor tee shot with an unlikely birdie on the 16th. After trying to play short off the tee on the 288-yard hole and hitting hybrid into a bunker, Mickelson faced an awkward distance and a slightly plugged lie in the sand. He blasted a pitching wedge to

12 feet and made another birdie. “One of the best shots I hit all day,” Mickelson said, and one final birdie on the par-5 18th gave him a 66. Behind him was Woods, hard to miss with the size of his gallery and the accompanying cheers. He came up short with his wedge and chipped in for birdie, then reached the green in two on the 538-yard closing hole framed by water for a two-putt birdie. That put him in the lead at 10-under 134 with Watney.

Two is the magic number for Wake, Tech ATLANTA (AP) — Two is a crucial number for both Georgia Tech and Wake Forest. The No. 10 Yellow Jackets are chasing the higher prize, needing two wins to clinch a spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. But two victories also would be meaningful for Wake Forest, which is trying to become eligible for its fourth straight bowl trip. The teams meet Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium. Georgia Tech (8-1, 5-1 ACC) has won six straight at its home field, while the Demon Deacons (4-5, 2-3) are trying to shake off a string of close losses — four coming by a total of 10 points.

Disappointing Terps, State meet RALEIGH (AP) — No teams in the ACC’s Atlantic Division have been bigger disappointments than Maryland and North Carolina State. The Wolfpack were believed to be preseason contenders to win the division but are the only team winless in ACC play. The Terrapins (2-6, 1-3) have just one win over a Bowl Subdivision team and can’t get anything going on the ground. Two teams with little to play for meet Saturday at Carter-Finley Stadium. Injuries have crippled both teams. N.C. State (3-5, 0-4) have lost 12 players for the season. Maryland’s ground game has been a nonfactor since Da’Rel Scott broke his wrist last month. The loser will be officially eliminated from bowl contention. The winner must run the table just to qualify for a bowl.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans Hornets owner George Shinn said Friday he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer but remains healthy and is optimistic that he will conquer the disease. “My wife, Denise, and I remain strong in our faith and will maintain a positive attitude as I battle this with intense fervor and drive,” Shinn said in a news release issued by the Hornets. A businessman from Kannapolis, N.C., Shinn, 68, has been the owner of the team since he received an expansion franchise in Charlotte, N.C. in 1988. He moved the team to New Orleans in 2002, and worked with the NBA to provide the team with a temporary home in Oklahoma City for the 2005-2006 season after floods from Hurricane Katrina virtually shut down the city for weeks and damaged the New Orleans Arena. The team split time between the two cities the following season and returned to New Orleans full-time for 2007-2008. The team set a club record for victories that season with 56 and clinched the 20-year-old franchise’s first division crown. “We’ve been a catalyst to help this city recover and we’re going to keep doing everything we can to keep it that way,” Shinn said at the time. Team spokesman Harold Kaufman said no details were available on treatment options for Shinn. In the news release, Shinn said the doctors he is consulting are optimistic. “This is not the first obstacle that I have had to overcome in life, but it will be another one that will be conquered,” Shinn said. “Those closest to me understand my commitment to God and belief in the power of prayer, so all that I ask is for people to add me to their prayers.”

NASCAR to honor fallen soldiers at Texas race FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — NASCAR will honor the fallen soldiers at Fort Hood during a race weekend that is just 170 miles from the site of the massacre that left 13 people dead.

He switched gears in the middle of his first question Friday to mention Thursday’s shooting at the sprawling Army post in central Texas. Newman said he didn’t know anyone directly involved in the shooting.

East had forced Chase into a punt after the Trojans had taken the game’s opening kick off. East took over at their own 34-yard line following the Trojans’ punt and needed just nine plays to travel 66 yards to find pay dirt. The Cavs’ Tyler Hamilton capped the drive with a 14-yard scramble, after Justin Barksdale had rumbled 18 yards on one play and Baxter had hit Lewis Wilkins for 22 yards on another. East’s Ryan Bailey booted the extra and the Cavs lead 7-0. The Trojans responded with a timeconsuming 15-play drive that ended with Blake Moffitt’s 30-yard field goal. The Trojans used 8:45 to post the three points, and they converted three 3rd downs on the drive. The night’s first miscue, much like the night’s first points, belonged to East. Baxter lost the handle, on a bad snap, on a 2nd and goal at the Chase 11, after East had marched 58 yards on just five plays. The Trojans scooped up the loose ball and their offense went to work at the Chase 12. The Trojans were only able to push the ball out to their own 30 before punting back over to East, This time, East was able to add some points to their slim 7-3 advantage. The Cavs’ Baxter hit Hamilton for 13 yards on one play and came back to find Price on another before Bailey trotted on and booted a 33-yard field goal with under five seconds remaining in the half. The kick lifted East to a 10-3 halftime lead. The Trojans, who had onside kicked in the first half only to see the ball awarded to East, tried the trick play again to open up the second half. This time, the Trojans were successful when Dion Hines hopped onto the loose ball. Chase needed 12 plays and used half the quarter, but Gossett plunged in from five yards out to cap the 51 yard drive. Moffitt’s extra point knotted the game at 10-10.

Chase’s Tyreece Gossett (2) looks to advance the ball against East during the game at East Rutherford High School.

East took the ensuing kick off and struck for back-to-back first downs before disaster struck the Cavs. East’s Tyler Hamilton on a 1st and 10 from the Chase 37 was hit hard and lost the ball to Chase’s Shane Pearson. The Trojans, like the night’s first turnover, were going to cash this one for points — just not right away. The Trojans lost a yard one their first play from scrimmage, following the fumble, and were sacked on their second play to set up a 3rd and 25 from the Chase 15. Chase managed one yard of forward progress and sent our Moffitt to punt the ball over to East. The Cavs committed a five-yard penalty and then on the ensuing snap to Moffitt, the East special teams unit ran over the Trojans punter drawing the 15 yard flag and a new set of downs for Chase. The Trojans used the second chance to march 61 yards on six plays to find the end zone. The big play came on a 30-yard completion from Gossett to Dion Hines. Hines’ older brother, Davon, would end the drive with a one yard plunge and Moffitt was true on the freebie to lift Chase to a 17-10 lead in the early moments of the fourth

quarter. East bounced back and drove 64 yards on 11 plays on a truly inspiring drive. East had a 63 yard touchdown run by Hamilton wiped out by a flag and over came both a 3rd and 17, and a 4th and 8 before scoring. Hamilton found the edge on the Chase defense and raced 29 yards to cap the unusual drive. Bailey was true on the extra and the game was knotted, 17-17, and on its way into overtime. The Cavs nearly ended its overtime possession on their first snap when the ball flew over the head of Hamilton. Hamilton raced backward 15 yards to land on the ball at the 25. A running play gained a yard back and East was faced with a 3rd and Goal from the 25. Baxter took the shot gun snap, settled in the pocket, and delivered a perfect pass to Wilkins, who was all alone in the back corner of the end zone for an East touchdown. Bailey’s point after attempt was wide right and Chase had one final chance to take a victory. The Trojans gained three yards on two rushing plays and an incompletion set up a final pass into the end zone that was knocked aside by Price.

SWANNANOA — Owen roared out to a 35-0 lead at the end of the opening quarter and went on to beat Thomas Jefferson, 75-0, Friday night to conclude the regular season football schedule.

Tar Heels thump Crusaders, 107-59

Key

CHAPEL HILL (AP) — Deon Thompson had 23 points and eight rebounds to help No. 6 North Carolina beat Belmont Abbey 107-59 on Friday night in its only exhibition game. Tyler Zeller scored 17 points for the defending national champions, while Ed Davis added 13 points, six rebounds and four blocks. The Tar Heels shot 57 percent and took a 56-36 advantage on the boards against the undersized instate Division II program. North Carolina used a 10-0 spurt for a doubledigit lead 6 minutes in, then put it out of reach with a 13-0 run that made it 55-29 shortly before halftime. North Carolina led by as many as 52 points. The Tar Heels open the regular season Monday against Florida International. Richard Barbee scored 15 points for the Crusaders.

to throw the ball where there’s no one there, and that’s what you’re doing a lot,� Cutcliffe said. “That’s why I watch an inordinate amount of time from the end zone when I’m studying quarterbacks. I’m watching the stripe on their helmet, I know where their eyes are from behind. That’s how I can tell you that Thad Lewis has improved. He knows what he’s doing in the pocket better.� But Lewis’ challenge Saturday could be tougher than he’s faced all season. The Tar Heels (5-3, 1-3) lead the league in both scoring and total defense — they rank seventh nationally in the

latter — and boast a defensive front that capable of pressuring Lewis more than past opponents. “I just want to keep from retreating against them,� Cutcliffe said. “They make plays, they’re big, they’re fast and very dominant.� The Tar Heels are coming off their own momentum-builder, a road upset of Virginia Tech in a nationally televised Thursday night game last week. Their defense was its typically stingy self, but the much-maligned offense came through with the kind of steady performance that the Tar Heels have lacked most of the season. Considering how well the Blue Devils’ offense is playing, North Carolina’s offense might have to do a little more than usual to

help out a defense that will have its hands full with Lewis. “You can just see evidence every single snap of his growth and development,� North Carolina coach Butch Davis said. “The decision-making that he’s been doing, the routes — they know how to attack defenses.� A big game from Lewis could help the Blue Devils end the Tar Heels’ recent dominance in the series. They’ve won 18 of 19 meetings, with Duke’s only win coming to end the 2003 regular season. “I think we have the linemen to get there, but I don’t think we need to give him the time,� North Carolina junior safety Deunta Williams said. “I think we need to hit him up a little bit. ... We’ve got to just see how good he is.�

Nation Today Pot report nets arrest

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Oregon police have charged a man with drunken driving after he called 911 to report his marijuana as stolen but the dispatcher couldn’t understand him because he was vomiting while on the road. Marion County sheriff’s deputies say 21-year-old Calvin Hoover, of Salem, told dispatchers early Tuesday that someone had broken into his truck and stolen cash, a jacket and a small amount of marijuana while he was at a tavern in Salem. He then called 911 again to complain that deputies had not arrived, but the dispatcher had trouble understanding Hoover because he was driving and stopping several times to vomit. He was arrested on charges of driving under the influence of intoxicants.

Teen charged with killing

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A teenager was charged Friday with killing a nun after allegedly breaking into her trailer home on the Navajo Indian reservation in search of cash or valuable items. Federal authorities accused Reehahlio Carroll, 18, of Navajo of “unlawful killing of a human being with malice aforethought” in the death of 64-year-old Sister Marguerite Bartz, who served at St.

Berard Catholic Church in Navajo. Carroll was expected to appear in federal court on Monday.

Stepfather convicted GALVESTON, Texas (AP) — A Southeast Texas man was convicted Friday of capital murder in the 2007 beating death of his 2-year-old stepdaughter whose battered body was found in a container floating in Galveston Bay. Jurors deliberated for 4 1/2 hours before finding Royce Clyde Zeigler II guilty in the death of the child known as “Baby Grace.” He will receive an automatic life sentence because prosecutors did not seek the death penalty.

Exhaust cone falls off jet NEW YORK (AP) — An engine tailcone fell off a Delta Air Lines jet shortly after takeoff Thursday and plummeted thousands of feet before landing harmlessly on a lawn in a Long Island residential neighborhood. Apparently, neither the pilots nor anyone on the ground immediately noticed the mishap when it happened. The aircraft, a Boeing 777, doesn’t need the part to fly and carried on safely to its destination, Tokyo, aviation officials said. Delta personnel reported the engine part missing following an inspection after the plane landed following its 14-hour flight.

This image made from video provided by News 13, in Orlando, Fla., shows Jason Rodriguez being taken into custody by police officers in Orlando, Fla. Rodriguez, 40, opened fire Friday in the offices of an engineering firm where he was let go more than two years ago, authorities said, killing at least one person and injuring five others.

Man kills one, wounds five in office shooting ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A gunman opened fire Friday in the offices of an engineering firm where he was let go more than two years ago, authorities said, killing one person and injuring five others. Jason Rodriguez, 40, surrendered about three hours later, after officers saw him through the window of his mother’s home and asked him to come outside, Orlando Police Chief Val Demings said. Asked by a reporter outside the police station why he did it, he replied: “Because they left me to rot.” Demings said Rodriguez brought a handgun to the firm in a downtown office tower where he once worked as an engineer, but investigators are not sure what his motive was. “This is a tragedy, no doubt about it, especially on the heels of the tragedy in Fort Hood that is on our minds,” Demings said. “I’m just glad we don’t have any more fatalities or any more injuries than we currently have.” Charles W. Price, an attorney who represented Rodriguez in a bankruptcy case, declined to comment. Camille Previlon told The Associated Press her uncle, engineer Guy Lungenbel, was shot in the back and was able to talk but had not said much about the shooting. “He is stable,” she said. “He’s just

hurting real bad in the back.” Everyone who was shot was in the offices of Reynolds Smith & Hill, on the eighth floor. The five survivors were in stable condition, Demings said. Company spokesman Mike Bernos said Rodriguez was an entry-level engineer who was fired in June 2007 after working there for a year. “His performance wasn’t up to our standards, so we terminated him,” Bernos said. There had been no contact between the company and Rodriguez since then. After the lunchtime shooting, people streamed out of the Legion Place building and some said they had barricaded themselves inside their offices while the gunman was on the loose. Gerry Gilgo, who works on the floor where the shooting occurred, told The Associated Press she was meeting a co-worker at the elevators for lunch. “She yelled, ’There are gunshots! There are gunshots! Get back in your office,”’ Gilgo said. Will Halpern, an attorney on the building’s 17th floor, was among the last group to be evacuated. He said the lobby was filled with about 20 officers in SWAT gear, carrying assault weapons, ready to search.

Neighbors: Suspected serial killer appeared harmless CLEVELAND (AP) — The man who lived in the house of rotting corpses never gave people a reason to wonder what he was really doing behind closed doors. Anthony Sowell was the guy who liked to sit on his front steps drinking King Cobra Malt Liquor for $1.50 a bottle, sometimes in the company of a woman. He was the guy who hung around the corner convenience store bumming change off his neighbors. He was the guy who scrounged around sidewalks and backyards for empty cans and scrap metal to sell. The suspected serial killer seemed so harmless that when he invited neighbors over for a barbecue in his driveway, they came. So benign that when he beckoned women inside his house that smelled of death, they apparently went willingly. “If it’s up to the people in the neighborhood, he probably never would have got caught,” said 52-year-old LaBaron Simpson. “Because he didn’t cause no problems around here.” The house where the authorities say 50-year-old Sowell lived among the reeking corpses of 10 women and the paper-wrapped skull of another

was silent on Friday, and investigators say they have no plans to resume searching for additional remains. The ex-Marine, who served 15 years in prison for attempted rape, is being held without bail on five aggravated murder charges. So far only three victims have been identified: Tonia Carmichael, 52, of Warrensville Heights; Telacia Fortson, 31, of Cleveland; and Tishana Culver, 31, also of Cleveland. Unbeknownst to most neighbors, Sowell was a registered sex offender who checked in with authorities from time to time and fooled people into believing he was just another guy trying to scrape out a living. The only distinguishing physical characteristic about Sowell, who is about 5-foot-11 and weighed 160 pounds, is a scar under his left eye. He smelled pretty bad, but then a lot of hard-up folks in this rough Cleveland neighborhood smell less than clean, people say. And even when a terrible, rotting stench wafted down the street and past his house, people didn’t think Sowell was the source. Instead, they pointed fingers at the sausage shop next door.

‘Too fat’ defense does not convince jury HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) — A jury rejected a Florida man’s claims that he was too fat to have run up and down a flight of stairs and killed his former sonin-law, convicting him Friday of murder. Edward Ates looked down and shook his head in court as he

was found guilty of murder and weapons counts for killing Paul Duncsak, a 40-year-old pharmaceutical executive who was shot six times in August 2006. The panel of eight women and four men issued its verdict on its second day of deliberations.

Ates, 62, had argued he didn’t have the energy to accurately shoot Duncsak from a perch on the staircase at Duncsak’s home in Ramsey, about 25 miles northwest of New York, and make a quick getaway to Louisiana. Ates weighed 285 pounds at the time.

Stocks post modest gains

NEW YORK (AP) — Investors undaunted by a surprisingly weak jobs report found enough positive news to nudge stocks higher. News that the nation’s unemployment rate rose above 10 percent last month for the first time in 26 years didn’t derail the stock market’s strong gains in the week, which lifted major indexes more than 3 percent. The rise in joblessness to 10.2 percent in October, while bad news for the economy, reassured some investors that the Federal Reserve will have to hold interest rates low for some time. That tends to weaken demand for the dollar, which in turn gives a boost to stocks. “We got data today that suggests that interest rates are going to be on hold for a while,” said Max Bublitz, chief strategist at SCM Advisors. When the dollar is weaker, U.S. goods are cheaper for buyers overseas. Companies that do business overseas also get a profit gain when their earnings are translated back into dollars. Safe-haven assets like Treasurys were mixed. Oil prices tumbled and gold topped $1,100 an ounce for the first time. Gold benefits when investors are worried about a weak dollar and inflation. Meanwhile, General Electric Co. rose 6 percent after analysts raised their ratings on the stock. It was the biggest gainer among the 30 Dow industrials. The jobs report bodes poorly for consumer spending, a key driver of the economy. “The consumer remains cautious and if they remain cautious they don’t spend,” said Michael Feser, president of Zecco Trading. The Labor Department said employers cut 190,000 jobs last month, fewer than the 219,000 jobs lost in September, but more than forecast. The market has been expecting unemployment to top 10 percent before peaking. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 17.46, or 0.2 percent, to 10,023.42, boosting its gain for the week to 311 points. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 2.67, or 0.3 percent, to 1,069.30, while the Nasdaq composite index rose 7.12, or 0.3 percent, to 2,112.44. For the week, the Dow and the S&P 500 index added 3.2 percent, while the Nasdaq rose 3.3 percent. Advancing stocks narrowly outpaced those that fell on the New York Stock Exchange, where volume came to 1.1 billion shares, compared with 1.3 billion Thursday. Bond prices mostly climbed. The benchmark 10-year Treasury note rose, pushing its yield down to 3.51 percent from 3.53 percent late Thursday. Oil fell $2.12 to settle at $77.87 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Gold rose $6.40 to settle at $1,095.70 an ounce on the New York Mercantile Exchange, adding 5.3 percent for the week. Some analysts saw reasons for optimism such as a rise in the number of temporary service jobs. Companies that are reluctant to commit to hiring will often first bring in temps to meet demand until they’re more confident of a turnaround in the economy. The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies fell 0.80, or 0.1 percent, to 580.35.

Jobless rate up to 10.2 percent NEW YORK (AP) — Just when it was beginning to look a little better, the economy relapsed Friday with a return to doubledigit unemployment for only the second time since World War II and warnings that next year will be even worse than previously thought. The jobless rate rocketed to 10.2 percent in October, the highest since early 1983, dealing a psychological blow to Americans as they prepare holiday shopping lists. It was another worse-than-expected report casting a shadow over the struggling recovery. President Barack Obama called it “a sobering number that underscores the economic challenges that lie ahead.” He signed a measure to extend unemployment benefits and extended a tax credit for first-time homebuyers. Economists had not expected the 10 percent mark to come so quickly and immediately darkened their forecasts. Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Economy.com, and Joshua Shapiro, chief U.S. economist at MFR Inc., predicted the rate will peak at 11 percent by mid-2010. They earlier had projected 10.5 percent. Unemployment at 11 percent would be a post-World War II record. Only once since then has joblessness hit double digits in the United States — from September 1982 to July 1983,

topping out at 10.8 percent. “It’s not a good report,” said Dan Greenhaus at investment firm Miller Tabak & Co. “What we’re seeing is a validation of the idea that a jobless recovery is perfectly on track.” The Labor Department, using a survey of company payrolls, said the economy shed 190,000 jobs in October. A separate survey of households found 558,000 more people were unemployed last month than in September. Some 15.7 million Americans are out of work. The survey of companies doesn’t count the self-employed and undercounts employees of small businesses. So the economic picture could be even more dire. One struggling small business, homebuilder Miller and Smith Inc. of McLean, Va., has trimmed its work force to about 100 from 350 at the height of the housing market in 2005. The company has been hurt by a slowdown in building and surging health care costs. Troubles for small businesses could have a disproportionate effect on the economy, because they account for about 60 percent of the nation’s jobs. They tend to rely on credit cards and home equity lines — both of which banks have tightened — for cash flow. And the unemployment rate doesn’t include people without jobs who have stopped looking,

or those who have settled for part-time jobs. Counting those people, the unemployment rate would be 17.5 percent, the highest since at least 1994. Economists had expected unemployment to rise to no more than 9.9 percent, up just a tick from September’s 9.8 percent, and the surprising jump added to fears that the recovery could fizzle if Americans don’t spend. Already, consumer confidence for October came in well below what analysts were expecting. Shoppers’ sentiments about the state of the economy are the gloomiest in nearly three decades. Stores, always with an eye on holiday sales, are especially worried this year. “This is a situation where the recovery balloon is getting off the ground but might not have enough power to keep rising,” said Brian Bethune, economist at IHS Global Insight. Sitting at a St. Louis unemployment center, Paul Branyon, who was laid off in July from a Williams-Sonoma factory in Tennessee and now lives with relatives, shook his head and laughed at the notion that the recession is over. “It’s getting actually harder right now,” the 26-year-old said. “It seems like everywhere you go, people are losing jobs. People are cutting back. So it’s going to get harder before it gets easier.”

Teen’s lie jeopardizes future Dear Abby: I am a 16-year-old guy in my sophomore year of high school. I am known as a friendly, outgoing guy who gets along with girls. My problem is, I used to be one of the biggest jerks who ever was. I was involved in fighting and other things I won’t go into. But I turned my life around. I was going out with an amazing girl, “Samantha.” She always kept me in line, but was sweet about it. Recently, because I was ashamed of my past, I lied to her. She found out about it and, needless to say, she was very hurt. When I saw how hurt she was, I was sick to my stomach knowing how much pain I had caused such a trusting girl. I want to make things right, but I don’t know where to start. I have talked to her since then, but things aren’t the same. Please help. — Lovesick Dear Lovesick: Apologize again to Samantha for not being completely truthful with her, and explain that you lied because you were ashamed about your past behavior and only wanted someone as special as she is to see you in a good light. Promise never to do it again. If she likes you as much as you like her, she’ll give you another chance. But remember, from here on you will have to be honest because if she catches you in another lie, she won’t

believe another word that comes out of your mouth. Enough said? Dear Abby: I am blessed with many wonderful friends. We exchange small gifts on birthdays and at Christmas. As much as I appreciate the gifts, I am running out of room in my closets because I have too much stuff. Sometimes the gifts are not to my taste or they don’t fit in with my decor. How long should I keep an item before I donate it to a thrift shop? Is it ungracious to give it away? Am I obligated to display or use something I don’t like? I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. I have tried suggesting that at our ages (50s and 60s) we should cut out the gift-giving, donate the money to charity and celebrate by going out to lunch on our birthdays. It didn’t go over very well. — Too Blessed Dear Too Blessed: It’s not ungracious to give away something you can’t use — in fact, the practice is so common there is a name for it. It’s called “regifting.” It won’t cause hurt feelings as long as you are careful.

Letting nature take its course Dear Dr. Gott: I have had a problem with severe constipation for many years. I have taken different laxatives and have been on milk of magnesia for a long time. I took a large dose of it last night and the night before, to no avail. I use Fleet enemas and suppositories, and strain with all my might to get any kind of action. I have approached my primarycare physician and others and get no answers at all. I will say I am desperate with the terrible problem and am hoping you can give me help. I’m physically active and seem to be in good health otherwise. Dear Reader: Constipation is a persistent decrease in the frequency and ease of bowel movements. On a temporary basis, this is nothing to worry about. Long term, it should be investigated. You do not indicate how often you actually have a bowel movement. Every person has a slightly different

pattern. For some, it’s once a day, three times a day or even once every three days. Do you include adequate fiber and sufficient fluids in your diet? Or is your diet high in animal fats and refined sugars? Have you had your thyroid gland checked? A sluggish thyroid can cause chronic constipation. The habitual use of laxatives can be dangerous. As with addictive drugs, doses of laxatives over time must be increased in order to produce the effect needed. Eventually, the intestines can become unresponsive to the drugs altogether, and cease to become effective.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — When some solutions to big questions come in a flash, you might mistrust them at first. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Before you have a chance to call in an expensive repairman, a handy friend might unexpectedly stop by. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You’ll be happy that your calendar is so flexible so you can be free. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — When faced with many uncertainties, you will perform at your best. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — If you’re in a place where you can’t leave your cell phone on, check your messages often. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) —You could be exposed to a series of unique developments.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — A noncommercial outing with friends could surprisingly produce a moneymaking situation. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — It’ll be a pleasant surprise when you discover that an aloof colleague shows that he or she cares. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — In order to solve a serious problem that arises out of the blue, you might have to draw on aptitudes you rarely think about using.

Shooter said good-byes before his rampage

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — As if going off to war, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan cleaned out his apartment, gave leftover frozen broccoli to one neighbor and called another to thank him for his friendship — common courtesies and routines of the departing soldier. Instead, authorities say, he went on the killing spree that left 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas, dead. Investigators examined Hasan’s computer, his home and his garbage Friday to learn what motivated the suspect, who lay in a coma, shot four times in the frantic bloodletting. Hospital officials said some of the wounded had extremely serious injuries and might not survive. The 39-year-old Army psychiatrist emerged as a study in contradictions: a polite man who stewed with discontent, a counselor who needed to be counseled himself, a professional healer now suspected of cutting down the fellow soldiers he was sworn to help. Relatives said he felt harassed because of his Muslim faith but did not embrace extremism. Others were not so sure. A recent classmate said Hasan once gave a jarring presentation to students in which he argued the war on terrorism was a war against Islam, and “made himself a lightning rod for things� when he felt his religious beliefs were challenged. Investigators were trying to piece together how and why Hasan allegedly gunned down his comrades in the worst case of violence on a military base in the U.S. The rampage unfolded at a center where some 300 unarmed soldiers were lined up for vaccines and eye tests. Soldiers reported that the gunman shouted “Allahu Akbar!� — an Arabic phrase for “God is great!� — before opening fire Thursday, said

needed it. “I cannot comprehend that the enemy was among us,� Padilla said, as he teared up. “I feel a little guilt that I was basically giving housing to someone who is going to do so much destruction.� Neighbor Patricia Villa said Hasan came to her apartment the day of the shooting, and before, to give her vegetables, an air mattress, T-shirts, a Quran and offer her $60 to clean his Killeen, Texas, apartment after he left. Jacqueline Harris, 44, who lives with her boyfriend Willie Bell in the apartment next door to Hasan, said he called Thursday at 5 a.m. and left a message. “He just wanted to thank Willie for being a good friend and thank him for being there for him,� Harris said. “That was it. We thought it was just a nice message to leave.� Bell said Hasan offered a farewell, saying “nice knowing you, old friend. I’m going to miss you.� According to a Killeen police report in August, an Army employee was charged with scratching Hasan’s car, causing $1,000 in damage. Apartment manager John Thompson said the man charged was a soldier back from Iraq, who objected to Hasan’s faith and ripped a bumper sticker off the major’s car that said: “Allah is Love.� Law enforcement officials said they are trying to confirm if Hasan wrote Internet postings that include his name about suicide bombings and other threats, equating suicide bombers to soldiers who throw themselves on a grenade to save the life of fellow soldiers. Hasan is the Arlington, Va.-born son of Palestinian parents who ran a restaurant and bar in Roanoke, Va., from 1987 to 1995, and owned a small grocery store.

This Thursday photo released by the Defense Department, shows detectives assigned to the Fort Hood Directorate of Emergency Services responding to a shooter barricaded in the post’s deployment readiness center, at Fort Hood, Texas. An Army psychiatrist suspected of opening fire on fellow soldiers at Fort Hood cleaned out his apartment and left a phone message saying goodbye to a friend in the days before the rampage that left 13 people dead, neighbors said Friday.

Lt. Gen. Robert Cone, the base commander. He said officials had not confirmed Hasan made the comment. Hasan’s family said in a statement Friday that his alleged actions were deplorable and don’t reflect how the family was reared. “Our family is filled with grief for the victims and their families involved in yesterday’s tragedy,� said Nader Hasan, a cousin who lives in northern Virginia. “We are mortified with what has unfolded and there is no justification, whatsoever, for what happened. We are all asking why this happened, and the answer is that we simply do not know.� The wounded were dispersed among hospitals in central Texas. W. Roy Smythe, chairman of surgery at Scott and White Memorial Hospital, said several patients were still at “sig-

nificant risk� of losing their lives. Army briefers told lawmakers in Washington that 38 people were wounded, eight more than officials had reported previously. The dead included a pregnant woman who was preparing to return home, a man who quit a furniture company job to join the military about a year ago, a newlywed who had served in Iraq and a woman who had vowed to take on Osama bin Laden after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Army Chief of Staff George Casey said he asked bases around the country to assess their security. He also said he was worried about a backlash against the thousands of Muslim soldiers serving dutifully in uniform. Hasan was due to be deployed to Afghanistan to help soldiers with combat stress, a task he’d done state-

side with returning soldiers, the Army said. Army spokeswoman Col. Cathy Abbott was uncertain when Hasan was to leave but he was in the preparation stage of deployment, which can take months. In any event, the major was saying goodbyes and dispensing belongings to neighbors. Jose Padilla, the owner of Hasan’s apartment complex, said Hasan gave him notice two weeks ago that he was moving out this week. Earlier this week, Hasan asked Padilla his native language. When Padilla said it was Spanish, Hasan immediately went up to his apartment to get him a Spanishlanguage Quran. Padilla said Hasan also refused to reclaim his deposit and last month’s rent, surrendering $400 that the major said should go to someone who
