WHO’S NEWS Testimony to start in murder trial

Indian Trail man shot Deputies charge neighbor after late-night attack BY JASON deBRUYN

Staff Writer INDIAN TRAIL A man was shot while standing on his front porch Tuesday night. Benjamin Maldonado told investigators that he stepped out of his house across from Indian Trail Elementary at about 11:30 p.m. and was shot at by Onesimo Billareal with a .40-caliber weapon from the neighboring house.

Maldonado was hit in the groin area and went back inside his house to call police, according to Union County Sheriff ’s Capt. Mike Easley, Investigators said Billareal, 26, of 307 N. Indian Trail Road, followed Maldonado into the house, threatened him and fired another shot into the floor. When Maldonado called the police, he said, Billareal went back to the

neighboring house. When police and a medical team arrived, Maldonado was treated and deputies surrounded the neighboring house. Easley said Billareal first refused to come out, but was taken into custody without a problem when police entered the house. Easley added that Maldonado said he did not know Billareal and had seen him only a few

times. Billareal is charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, communicating threats, burglary and discharging a weapon into an occupied property. He was being held at the Union County jail under a $100,000 bond. Police recovered the weapon. — Jason deBruyn can be reached at 704-261-2243 or jdebruyn@theej.com.

First Presbyterian Church members Norman Stryker and Holly McEachin sort through the first batch of donations dropped off Wednesday at First Presbyterian Church in Monroe. The church is trying to fill a trailer with canned goods that will be divided between Crisis Assistance Ministry and the Loaves and Fishes food pantry.

Church gathers food donations through Sept. 30 BY TIFFANY LANE

Staff Writer

MONROE Loaves and Fishes of Monroe has spent $27,000 more on food this year than last. Between May 2008 and this past April, it has served more than 4,500 people — about 95,000 meals. “We are viewing this as a disaster in Union County,” said First Presbyterian Church member Margaret Desio. With so many local people going hungry, the church has parked a 28-foot trailer in its parking lot, hoping to fill it by the end of the month. Donations will be split between Loaves and Fishes and United Way’s Crisis Assistance Ministry, and every donated item will go to a Union County resident. Desio compared the eco-

nomic downturn to postHurricane Katrina. After the hurricane, the church ran a similar food drive and the trailer filled up in no time. “This is no less a disaster than what it was in New Orleans,” she said. “We just can’t stand that people are going hungry.” Gloria Barrino, executive director of Crisis Assistance Ministry, said the agency has served 586 households so far this year — 150 more than last year. “The need is outstripping our resources,” she said. All United Way agencies are also in a blackout period, which means that individual agencies cannot hold fundraisers during the United Way of

Gold: Buy, hold or sell? NEW YORK (AP) — Gold prices rose above $1,000 an ounce Tuesday for the first time in seven months, mostly because of a weak dollar that’s driving people to o t h e r i nve s t ments t h e y perceive as safe. H o w is the increase in price — which has accelerated in recent weeks — likely to affect jewelry shoppers? What about people who invest in gold, or the economy as a whole? Here are some questions and answers about the high price of gold. Q: Was Tuesday’s high price a record for gold? A: It was high, but not a record. The price of gold climbed as high as $1,009.70 an ounce in the morning before giving up some of its gains later in the day. In afternoon trading, prices settled at around $1,000 an ounce. Tuesday’s price was the highest of the year and the first time the price rose above $1,000 since February. But the record came on March 17, 2008, when gold prices hit $1,033.90. Tuesday’s price was even further from the record high when accounting for inflation. In 1980, gold prices hit $850 an ounce — equivalent to more than $2,200 in today’s dollars. Q: Why are gold prices rising? A: Analysts say the price of gold has been rising predominantly because of the weakening value of the U.S. dollar. Typically gold prices move in the opposite direction of the dollar, so as it weakens, gold prices rise. The reason: When the value of the dollar, often considered the world’s reserve currency, is falling, investors often turn to gold as a relatively safe alternative place to put their money. “When you have currencies weakening and there’s no currency of choice (among traders), you move to gold,” said Carlos Sanchez, an analyst with CPM Group in New York. And it’s not just a weak dollar that can have this effect; investors’ worries about further weakening can boost gold prices even higher. The dollar continued to weaken against other major currencies Tuesday, falling by about 1 percent against the euro and the British pound. Q: Why is the dollar weakening? A: It’s largely because of concerns related to the massive stimulus spending by the U.S.

Jury selection continued in the trial against John Joseph Carvalho Wednesday and attorneys predicted testimony would begin Thursday. Carvalho is charged with killing James Richard Long, who was found dead in his home on Dec. 2, 2002. Carvalho is charged with first-degree murder, but the District Attorney’s office is not seeking the death penalty. This is the final remaining murder trial current District Attorney John Snyder inherited from former chief prosecutor Michael Parker. — Staff Writer Jason deBruyn

of concerned residents and business owners. Many were there to protest widening the road under the DOT’s original plan, which called for four lanes and a 23-foot median. A bridge would also run over the railroad tracks, with the bottom of it at least 23 feet off the ground. Locals say the project would increase traffic, re-

duce businesses’ parking space or eliminate access to businesses altogether, and disrupt the historic Methodist church. A few business owners have said they would be forced to relocate if the road is widened under those conditions.

Marjorie Laney Bernabe

Mrs. Bernabe stepped into the realms of Heaven on September 3, 2009. She was reunited with her husband, Benny Bernabe; her son, Benny, Jr.; her great grandson Alan; and three brothers, James, Donald, and Guy and her sisters, Jewel Miklos, and Mary Kirk Matthews. She was 85 years old. Marjorie was born and raised in Union County. She grew up in the Wesley Chapel/ Siler community and at 17, she met a handsome soldier on the road near her home. He asked her for a cup of hot coffee and they exchanged addresses. After a brief courtship through the mail, Benny Bernabe asked Marjorie to become his wife. Benny and Marjorie had two children, Benny Jr and Donna. They raised them in Indian Trail where Marjorie owned and operated the Trailer Beauty Shop for over 40 years. Besides all of the hair and “politickin” that was done in the beauty shop, there were also countless, lifelong friendships that were conceived and nurtured there. There were several ladies who would show up for their hair appointment with their lunches packed just so they could hang out at the shop for the day to catch up on the latest “news” in Union County! After retiring from the beauty shop, Marjorie moved to the mountains of Trade, Tennessee with her daughter and son-in-law, Donna and Frankie Goodwin. She had a beautiful home nestled between 3 mountains that, of course, she covered with trees and flowers from top to bottom! Marjorie loved to have her friends and family visit her new home. She always welcomed them with opened arms and always prepared a feast that was fit for a king. The very best macaroni and cheese, fried apple pies, and sweet tea were always on the table at Marjorie’s. She had a rule that no one left her house hungry. Marjorie loved to be outside tending to her flowers and working in her garden. She grew the most beautiful day lilies, irises, and dahlias on this side of Heaven. In addition to the corn, beans, tomatoes, and squash in the garden, she had potatoes the size of softballs and cabbage heads as big as basketballs! She loved sharing the fresh vegetables from her garden, as well as the ones she froze and canned, with her family and friends. The greatest joy in Marjorie’s life was spending time with her family. Her grandbabies all loved to visit Grandmommy in the mountains. While they were there, they would get outside and play

in the creek catching crawl dads and throwing rocks. She would pick Queen Anne’s Lace and put them in colored water for the kids so they could watch them change color. When it was time to come inside, she would get out all the ingredients for making popcorn balls and let the kids make the balls and they would eat them together. She also loved to have the kids play their musical instruments for her. There was never a dull moment at Grandmommy’s house! On one of the last visits where she was able to be outside with the grandkids, she watched as they planted this year’s potatoes in the garden. After the planting was done, the kids all went fishing in the trout pond and each one caught a fish. The fish were grilled for supper that night. What a feast we had! The whole day is a memory that they will cherish forever. Although she will not be here when the kids harvest the potatoes they planted, you can bet that the supper table in Heaven just got better! While we will miss her here, we know that we will see her again soon. We are all looking forward to that great reunion. Marjorie leaves behind a legacy of faith, strength, and love in all of us who knew and loved her. We will all carry on her faith in God to get us through our lives; her incredible strength to deal with the hard times that we all will face; and the love that she shared with us will warm our hearts for the rest of our lives. Knowing her and loving her has truly been one of the greatest blessings of our lives. Marjorie is survived by 3 sisters; Wilene Maness, Geneva Hepp, and Evelyn Marr; 1 brother, Will Laney; her daughter, Donna Goodwin; her daughter-in-law, Johnnie Bernabe; 4 grandchildren, and 10 great grandchildren. Her final wish was to have her body donated to medical research in an attempt to help in finding a cure for cancer. There will be receiving of friends in celebration of her life on Sunday, September 13th at Heritage Funeral Home in Indian Trail from 1 to 3 pm. In lieu of flowers please send memorials to Medical Center Hospice; 101 Med Tech Parkway; Suite 100; Johnson City, TN 37604. PAID OBITUARY

Archerd: Known for facts, not gossip LOS ANGELES (AP) — Army Archerd, whose breezy column for the entertainment trade publication Daily Variety kept tabs on various Hollywood doings for more than a half-century, has died. He was 87. Archerd’s wife, Selma, said he died Tuesday at UCLA Medical Center of mesothelioma, a cancer of the lungs strongly tied to asbestos exposure. She said the cancer was the result of his time spent in shipyards while serving in the Navy during World War II. She said he had become very ill over the last two years, especially in the last two weeks. Over the years, Archerd won praise from the Hollywood establishment for

always checking the accuracy of his news tips before printing them. He had a phone directory of much-guarded private numbers that he would use to call stars and studio bosses directly to ferret out which rumors were true and which were not. His biggest scoop came in 1985 when he was first to report that veteran leading man Rock Hudson had AIDS. It was the first time a major Hollywood star was disclosed to be an AIDS victim, and it helped break down some of the secrecy surrounding the disease. Archerd — born Armand Archerd in New York in 1922 — also broke the story that Julia Roberts had jilted fiance Keifer Sutherland in 1991 and that longtime bachelor Warren Beatty had married Annette Bening in 1992. His source for the Beatty-Bening story was Beatty himself. Archerd’s columns were generally mild-mannered, although he could lash out when provoked. After he excoriated Michael Jackson for including anti-Semitic remarks in his “HIStory” album, the entertainer apologized and took them out.

‘Extreme Cowboy’ comes to Monroe MONROE The original extreme cowboy, Craig Cameron, will make his first appearance in Monroe at Why Not An American Ark’s equine facility Oct. 14-17. The program will feature a three-day horsemanship clinic, followed by the Extreme Cowboy Race on Oct. 17. Cameron has produced the TV shows “Ride Smart With Craig Cameron” and “The Extreme Cowboy Race.” Ticket prices are $35 per day or $70 for four days. For those who can attend only on Oct. 17, the Ark has designated the day as Family Day and will have a petting zoo in addition to the Extreme Cowboy Race. The admission price for Oct. 17 only is $5 for adults and free for children 12 and under.

DOT Continued from 1A years of working with DOT is “force a project on a community that don’t want the project.” Complete Streets, a DOT policy adopted earlier this summer, also says the DOT will collaborate with towns and stakeholders to build or reconstruct local roads. The policy aims to affect existing buildings, parks and historic sites as little as possible. Mayor Lynda Paxton has said she is confident the two sides can come to a compromise, particularly under the new policy. Town Council members are not in favor of the DOT’s original plan, saying they need the small businesses for town revenue. Some have said the town should revisit a Chestnut Lane project, which would extend the road to U.S. Highway 74 and save the town from widening Stallings Road. Chestnut Lane is in Indian Trail, and some Stallings Council members and residents are hesitant to put money into a project that they say would benefit another town. Councilman Wyatt Dunn has suggested splitting both the cost of the extension and revenue from subsequent business along the extension with Indian Trail if no other options work out. At the last meeting, Moose outlined five options for the town to alleviate traffic in the area: put a hold on the project and reevaluate what the town would like to accomplish, do nothing and leave the road as is, widen the road into four lanes with a median, extend Chestnut Lane or let the town take responsibility for the road so it’s not under the DOT’s control. The latter would also mean no DOT funding. Moose said reevaluating the project is his top recommendation, but could delay any kind of actual road work for several years depending on how far back the town wants to go. Many residents, though, applauded when he mentioned doing nothing. The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at Town Hall, located at 315 Stallings Road.

Graham association denies racism

Former employee says evangelical group excludes black churches RALEIGH (AP) — The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association said Wednesday it never discriminated against a black employee and argued in court papers that her lawsuit should be dismissed because of “church autonomy.” Attorneys for the association argued that the complaint from former employee Kimberly McCallum failed to contend that the job she lost re-

mained open or was given to another person — often a key to discrimination cases. They also said churches have autonomy that bars the courts from interfering in the organization’s internal affairs. “Such an inquiry by the courts would be an impermissible entanglement into the affairs of a religious organization,” the attorneys wrote in their motion to dismiss the case that was re-

leased Wednesday. They contend that the association never discriminated nor retaliated against McCallum. McCallum, who is from Charlotte, said in her lawsuit she was abruptly fired in 2007 after complaining to her superiors that the organization was not reaching out to black churches. She argued that a list of 635 prospective church partners had only three

memberships that were primarily black, and McCallum said it was apparent that black churches were excluded from the document. She tried to get other jobs at the association but was blocked from other positions and had a later job offer revoked, according to the complaint. The lawsuit seeks a job reinstatement, back pay and damages for what she describes as discrimination

because of her race. The association, founded by Billy Graham in 1950 and with main offices in Charlotte, is now led by Graham’s son, Franklin. Religion observers say the group has long tried to expand its diversity, and officials at the association pointed out that two prominent black pastors from the Minneapolis area recently led an association event there.

A CAROLINA VIEW

Election fund limits freedom I

f you’re looking for a silver lining in the effects of the recession on state government, we’ve found one. Efforts to establish an endowment that could lead to censorship of free political speech have been delayed. On Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue’s first day at work after being sworn in back in January, she issued an executive order setting up a task force to establish a so-called “endowment for positive gubernatorial campaigns.” A recent report by the Winston-Salem Journal noted that the efforts have gone no where, primarily because promoters out there don’t think there are a lot of philanthropists out there willing to give a lot of money to the foundation. “Those who would financially support the endowment are struggling with the same economic downturn that has afflicted all of North Carolina and the country,” Perdue spokesman Chrissy Pearson told the newspaper in an e-mail. The report suggests that the foundation would need to raise about $50 million in order to fund the campaigns of gubernatorial candidates. According to Perdue’s campaign Web site, candidates qualifying for money from this endowment would have to pledge that: • Their advertising will not name or otherwise refer to another candidate. • Their advertising will address questions on a menu of major issues developed by the endowment. • They will not spend any other monies on paid advertising. Not being able to name or refer to your opponent in a campaign ad would stifle political debate. And the restriction of allowing your ads to address only issues sanctioned by the endowment is the equivalent of censorship. The proposal would also put restrictions on political parties and seek to place restrictions on other groups that might want to weigh in on issues in the gubernatorial campaign. Candidates who choose not to participate in the foundation funding and therefore not limit their free political speech would be severely handicapped in the campaign. For example, individual contributions to campaigns would be limited to $250. Currently, the individual limit is $4,000. The proposal tilts the playing field in favor of candidates who opt into the foundation funding in other ways. For example, individuals would be able to give more to such candidates if the candidate’s opponent is not participating in the program. The proposal for the endowment was never a good idea. It’s even worse now. Perdue should take her file on the proposed speech-stifling foundation and throw it in the recycling bin. — The Free Press of Kinston

Support literacy

International Literacy Day was first established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and since 1966 has been celebrated each year on September 8th. Many organizations and governments throughout the world use the day to heighten awareness of adult and child literacy and encourage reading in general. In Union County an estimated 20,000 adults lack basic literacy skills, with the effects felt throughout our community. Imagine parents unable to read to their children, workers unable to read a safety sign posted in the work place, and patients unable to read the instructions on a necessary medication. The Literacy Council of Union County continues to address this basic need by training volunteer tutors to provide one-on-one and small group tutoring for adults enrolled in our program. As the adults we serve gain the literacy skills they need to be better parents, workers, and community members, their individual lives are enhanced, and, as a result of their individual accomplishments, our community becomes richer as well. As we celebrate International Literacy Day, we are proud of the adults who recognize their need for improved literacy and commit to gaining those skills. Likewise we are grateful for the many volunteers, including nearly 100 trained volunteer tutors, who are giving of their time and talents to overcome illiteracy. The Literacy Council is a United Way of Central Carolinas member agency. We welcome inquiries about our program and currently require another 20 - 25 volunteer tutors to meet the needs of adults who have sought our services and are waiting for a tutor to become available. Our next series of tutor training workshops will be held Tuesday, October 13; Friday, October 23;

and Saturday, October 24. More information is available on our website: www.literacyunion.org. LINDA MOYER Literacy Council of Union County

Unhappy with liberals

This is for you if you are dismayed with the direction our extreme left liberal leaders are taking America. It doesn’t matter which party you are affiliated with if this sentence applies to you. There is another choice before we as the people lose all our choices. This is in the form of an organized third party called “The State Constitution Party.” This State Constitution Party was organized in 1992 and is growing at a steady pace to be the third largest political party in terms of voter registration. We are hosting an Informational Meeting on Saturday, September 15th at Lake Park Community Center from 7 - 9 pm. Once not so very long ago America had a strong twoparty system that worked well within the boundaries of our so valued Constitution. It seems now that one party is very little different from the other with the exception of the extreme left, and this extreme left is taking our country in a very scary direction. It seems the rules of the Constitution of the United States does not apply to them and before we know it our conservative values are going to be Gone With the Wind if I may borrow the phrase. I urge you, any of you who are questioning the right of the Federal Government to continue to ignore what we the people want and legislate into law what they personally have decided is best for us. We can turn the tide but not without good information, determination and a strong grassroots support system.

Ridiculous officials

News reports of actions listed below by our local governments sound ridiculous. These raise concerns on whether other decisions make sense for the benefit of the citizens of Union County. First our Board of Commissioners have decided to continue an old feud that had been resolved through investigations by law enforcement and other officials – with no actionable findings. Now it is being opened again as an ethics issue on what sounds like a technicality. This would waste even more money with only a slim chance of any productive output. The commissioners could better use their efforts learning to work together on subjects to improve our community in these tough times rather than wasting time and money Second is the Tonawanda park issue. As a county citizen it would make sense to send a letter of thanks to the city for maintaining this park for use by the community along with a gift of the land to the city. This might help pave the way for cooperation on other issues. As a city citizen I would not object to using our tax money to continue the maintenance of this park for public use as in the past. If the county objects to this we may need to move playground equipment, but building a separating fence seems to be a waste of money. And last, parking accommodations for the county in city owned lots is a separate issue and should be handled on its own. It appears that what we have is working or if there are problems they should be addressed separately from the park issue. One has to wonder what parking plan was included in the construction of the county facilities. FRANK ELLIOT Monroe

When 1,000 words is far too many O

n August 14 a young Marine Lance Corporal, Joshua Bernard, was struck by a Taliban-fired RPG during an ambush while on patrol in Afghanistan’s Helmand Province. This American hero suffered severe leg wounds and eventually succumbed to his injuries on a field hospital operating table. According to friends, Bernard was a young man whose strong faith guided him on a path of service -- eventually leading to his enlistment in the Marine Corps. His passing is a tremendous blow to his family and friends -- and to an eternally grateful nation. Similar stories of sacrifice and loss have been playing out across our nation as our young men and women continue to serve in harm’s way. What makes this story even more tragic is a decision by the Associated Press that crosses the bounds of decency.

Michael Reagan Columnist

You see, the Associated Press has reporters and photographers embedded with the Marines as they conduct combat operations. AP photographer Julie Jacobson, an embed in Afghanistan during the ambush, captured images of Bernard as he lay mortally wounded. Sensing opportunity, the Associated Press team put together a narrative entitled “AP Impact - Afghan - Death of a Marine” also using the work of journalist Alfred de Montesquiou along with

cameraman Ken Teh, in which they inexplicably included the image of the slain, young Marine. Even after appeals from the family and Defense Secretary Gates, the AP went forward with its publication over their objections on the grounds that it conveyed “the grimness of war.” While I applaud many in the press who jeopardize their own safety at risk to cover our men and women in battle, the actions of the Associated Press here also jeopardize the already fragile relationships Americans have with members of the press. Unbiased reporting from the battlefield is crucial to relaying the truths of war back to all of us at home. But incidents such as this, where the media puts its own agenda (be it personal, professional or political) ahead of the respectful treatment each of us would expect if

this was a member of our family, are why so many of us are skeptical of what is reported in newspapers, online and on television. This young Marine, his family and friends deserved better. They deserved to remember their son, their friend, their fellow-Marine, as he lived rather than through the lens of a media team more interested in furtherance of their own aims than of common decency. Now the man has been forgotten for the news story. And the terrorist enemies who caused this casualty should not have their works widely distributed internationally -- surely to be used as propaganda. Many news organizations understood this, and, in respect and compassion, chose not to run the photograph. I am thankful for their sense and restraint. Nevertheless, this is a test which more

than 20 news outlets failed. The grimness of war is something we all need to be consistently reminded of -teaching us about the sacrifices of the few who, on our behalf, defend our freedoms as we go about our daily lives. These stories, and the courageous individuals behind them, must never be forgotten, nor should the horrors they endure be lightly pushed aside. In this instance, however, the worldwide distribution of an image of an American hero as he passes to his Creator is something far too graphic and, moreover, intrusive to pass the test of responsible journalism -- and that of responsible human behavior. — Mike Reagan, the elder son of the late President Ronald Reagan, is chairman and president of The Reagan Legacy Foundation (www. reaganlegacyfoundation. org).

States scramble to change EOG rules To qualify for $4 billion in aid, schools must link test scores to teacher evaluations and has set off a rush to change the laws before time runs out on the funds. Obama believes so strongly that teachers are key to fixing schools and helping kids learn that he refuses to dole out the stimulus dollars if states don’t heed his wishes. California, Wisconsin and Nevada have laws that ban tying test scores to teacher reviews. While

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Three cash-strapped states may find themselves left at the starting line in the competition for more than $4 billion in education stimulus funding if they don’t amend laws that prevent student test results from being tied to teacher evaluations. That requirement is a cornerstone of Obama’s education reform efforts

California and Wisconsin lawmakers are scrambling to lift the ban, Nevada may not be able to remove its restriction in time; its Legislature won’t be back in session until 2011. New York also bars test scores from being a factor in teacher tenure, but this restriction is more narrow and not expected to hurt the state’s chances to receive the funds un-

der Obama’s “Race to the Top” program. The administration hopes the program will improve student achievement, boost the performance of minority students, who lag their white peers, and raise graduation rates. Teachers unions have long opposed linking test scores with evaluations and teacher pay because they

believe it’s unfair to judge a teacher’s performance on a single test. They also note the tests can be flawed, don’t test every subject, and that many students learn from more than one teacher. “I don’t think the best approach in teacher evaluation comes from students’ test scores,” said Dave Harswick, a high school history teacher and

union leader in Green Bay, Wis. “It can be part of the picture, but it shouldn’t be the whole picture.” Education Secretary Arne Duncan has said state laws that prohibit linking student test scores and teacher evaluations are “simply ridiculous.” He says good teaching ought to be rewarded and that test results are a measure of progress.

Space shuttle to land today CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Shuttle Discovery’s astronauts aimed for a Thursday evening landing to wrap up their successful space station delivery mission, but late summer storms threatened to keep them up an extra day or two. Mission Control said Wednesday that “the weather will pose a challenge” for bringing Discovery home. The fore-

cast called for a chance of thunderstorms. Conditions were expected to worsen Friday and remain poor Saturday. “The weather in Florida this time of year is always a little iffy,” Discovery’s commander, Rick Sturckow, said from orbit. “If things aren’t good, the worst that can come out of it is that we have another day in space, which is a great

deal.” In orbit since Aug. 29, Discovery has enough supplies to last until Sunday. If the shuttle cannot return to Florida on Thursday, NASA will consider landing it in California, but not until Friday at the earliest. Astronaut Timothy Kopra is headed home after nearly two months at the international space station. He said the flight

wasn’t too long by any stretch. He should have spent an extra month at the outpost, but his ride up ended up being delayed because of shuttle problems. Buzz Lightyear, by comparison, spent 15 months aboard the space station. The 12-inch action figure rocketed into “infinity and beyond” aboard Discovery in May 2008.

stamps. Donations to Loaves and Fishes will feed hundreds of residents across the county. It’s not even the busiest time of year, Barrino said. While winter brings in more work for emergency agencies, she said, it is also the slowest time for some companies that have to cut back on workers’ hours, adding to overall need. Even former donors are not immune to the recession. “Some of them who were giving to us are coming to us now,” Barrino said. “The needs are so great, no one agency can meet them all.” Of her 20 years working in crisis intervention, she said, this year is by far one of the toughest. Crisis Assistance encourages economic independence, offering a financial mentoring program and temporarily bridging the gap when residents fall short on

their bills. Money goes straight to bill collectors, not individuals. Individuals can qualify for assistance only once a year. The greatest service her agency can offer, Barrino said, is pointing people in the right direction. Crisis Assistance has given 4,102 referrals to other agencies this year, up from 3,405 last year. Loaves and Fishes is one of those agencies when Crisis Assistance runs out of food. According to Loaves and Fishes expense records, the food pantry spent $47,364 on purchased food between May 2007 and April 2008, and received another $33,466 worth of food from donations. This fiscal year, it has spent $74,752 on food, with another $63,975

worth of contributions. Loaves and Fishes Vice President Ronnie Cutler said the food pantry receives donations from individuals, churches and grants. People referred can use the food pantry three times a year; each visit includes food that will last the average family 10 to 14 days. Donations will be accepted until Sept. 30 and can be dropped off between 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays and noon to 3 p.m. on Sundays. Monetary donations are welcome. The church is located at 302 E. Windsor St. in Monroe. — Have a story idea about a church? Contact Tiffany Lane at 704-2612229 or tlane@theej.com.

Central Carolinas annual campaign. Most clients at Crisis Assistance are between the ages of 35 and 60, Barrino said; many of them work but don’t earn enough to make ends meet. Others were recently laid off and need temporary relief until they receive unemployment or find another job. Some clients are elderly and need a little help until the next Social Security check comes. The donations the church is collecting come at a time when food pantries are stocking up for winter. Traditionally, Barrino said, winter forces people to choose between eating and paying the heating bill. Donations to Crisis Assistance will go toward families that still have some leftover income and don’t yet qualify for food

The wolf population could sustain a hunting harvest in excess of 30 percent and still bounce back, Molloy said in his written ruling issued late Tuesday. The ruling left unresolved the broader question of whether wolves should be returned to the endangered list. However, Molloy said the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service appeared to have violated the Endangered Species Act when it carved Wyoming out of its decision to lift protections in May for wolves elsewhere in the region.

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A federal judge said gray wolf hunts can go on for the first time in decades in the Northern Rockies, just months after the animals were removed from the endangered species list. U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy denied a request by environmentalists and animal welfare groups to stop the hunts in Idaho and Montana, saying plans to kill more than 20 percent of the estimated 1,350 wolves in the two states would not cause long-term harm to the species.

Obama: ‘Time for bickering is over’ Congress returns to health care debate; Senate Finance leader promises legislation WASHINGTON (AP) — Shaking off a summer of setbacks, President Barack Obama summoned Congress to enact sweeping health care legislation Wednesday night, declaring the “time for bickering is over” and the moment has arrived to protect millions who have unreliable insurance or no coverage at all. Obama said the changes

he has in mind would cost about $900 billion over decade, “less than we have spent on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and less than the tax cuts for the wealthiest few Americans” passed during the Bush administration. In a speech to a joint session of Congress, Obama supported an option for the federal government to sell insurance in competi-

Grass greener near memorial WASHINGTON (AP) — Frustrated with poor maintenance by the federal government, the group that built the Vietnam War memorial is aiming to improve its little corner of the National Mall by taking over lawn care for 13.5 acres marred by weeds, moss and brown spots. Officials with the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund said they were moved to act after reading an Associated Press investigative story on the lack of federal money for the mall, despite needed urgent repairs to the area known as “America’s front yard.” The AP’s story in July analyzed congressional spending since 2005 and found the mall has been at a disadvantage in competing for millions of dollars in extra funds doled out by lawmakers, compared with sites that are represented by powerful members of Congress. The entire mall, covering some 650 acres, is in the District of Columbia, which has no vote in the House or Senate. Lawmakers frequently direct money to projects

back home, but even as the problems became obvious at the National Mall — including the seawall visibly sinking in front of Thomas Jefferson’s memorial — Congress killed a bill last year that would have funded repairs. In January, lawmakers nixed $200 million in proposed stimulus funding. The private Vietnam veterans group plans to spend $96,000 in the coming months to repair a broken irrigation system and provide weed treatment, fertilization, aeration and other work. The group, which is working with the National Park Service to make sure the improvements adhere to the agency’s specifications, intends to continue maintaining the grass in the long term, Fund President Jan C. Scruggs said. Repairs to the irrigation system are scheduled to begin Thursday. One prominent Vietnam veteran, Texas businessman Peter Holt, who owns the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs, remembers noticing problems when he spoke at a Memorial Day event at the monument this year.

$1,000 barrier, it quickly retreated. Q: Could the price of gold affect any potential economic recovery? A: Jon Nadler, a senior analyst at Kitco Metals Inc. in Montreal, said that is unlikely. Because gold is used more in luxury goods and not a necessity like other commodities such as oil, it is unlikely to propel or drag the economy as it tries to shake the ongoing recession. Q: What do rising gold prices mean for customers who buy jewelry and other products made from gold? A: Quite simply, it means prices are likely to continue to rise. Tuesday’s rise might not cause an increase in prices overnight, but as prices continue to move higher,

Q: Is the price of gold going to continue rising? A: Analysts are still mixed about where gold might head. James DiGeorgia, publisher of the newsletter Gold and Energy Advisor, said prices could reach as high as $1,200 an ounce by the end of the year. However, James Steel, an analyst with HSBC, noted that the last few times gold has neared or eclipsed the

Obama’s speech came as the president and his allies in Congress readied an autumn campaign to enact his top domestic priority. While Democrats command strong majorities in both the House and

Senate, neither chamber has acted on Obama’s top domestic priority, missing numerous deadlines leaders had set. In a fresh sign of urgency, Sen.

U.S. death toll at 4,343 in Iraq

WASHINGTON, D.C. — As of Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2009, at least 4,343 members of the U.S. military had died in the Iraq war since it began in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count. The figure includes nine military civilians killed in action. At least 3,469 military personnel died as a result of hostile action, according to the military’s numbers. The AP count is one more than the Defense Department’s tally, last updated Wednesday at 10 a.m. EDT. The British military has reported 179 deaths; Italy, 33; Ukraine, 18; Poland, 21; Bulgaria, 13; Spain, 11; Denmark, seven; El Salvador, five; Slovakia, four; Latvia and Georgia, three each; Estonia, Netherlands, Thailand and Romania, two each; and Australia, Hungary, Kazakhstan and South Korea, one death each.

Gay union leaders drop court fight

OLYMPIA, Wash. — Supporters of Washington state’s most recent expansion of domestic partnership rights say that added cost is passed along to shoppers who buy things like gold rings and necklaces. Q: Has the recent rise in gold prices affected business already? A: Absolutely. Ernest Perry, whose business Perry’s at SouthPark in Charlotte, N.C., specializes in antique and estate jewelry, said

they’re dropping efforts to block a public vote on the new law. Washington Families Standing Together chairwoman Anne Levinson says the group is now going to focus on a campaign to ensure that the law is retained. On Tuesday, a Thurston County judge rejected the group’s argument that state officials improperly accepted thousands of petition signatures in support of putting Referendum 71 on the ballot. The referendum puts the Legislature’s latest expansion of domestic partnership rights for gay couples on the November ballot. A “yes” vote would approve the new law, and a “no” vote would reject it.

Nine couples in Hollywood spent 99 cents each to get married at a 99 Cents Only store on Sunset Boulevard. Jessica Skrutvold of Las Vegas said she and her husband-to-be Chad Lyons were expecting nine guests for their 9 p.m. wedding, which coincidentally celebrates her favorite number. “The easiest day for my poor memory to remember was 9-9-09, and we’ve been doing everything last-minute ever since,” said the 31-yearold who works for a local insurance agency. “It was easy, and both of us can remember it and never forget.” Skrutvold called to book a chapel in March and found the only open slots were for 8:30 or 9 that night. “We took the most obvious choice,” she said.

Henry J. Lyons of Tampa, Fla. Lyons is running for the office after being imprisoned for stealing millions from the denomination. His lawsuit claims that new bylaws on voting for the president violate the denomination’s constitution.

Foreclosure rates level off in August

MIAMI — The number of U.S. households threatened with losing their homes held steady last month, a sign that lenders’ efforts to help distressed borrowers may be having a gradual impact. But one month does not make a trend. More than 358,000 foreclosure-related filings were recorded in August, meaning one in 357 U.S. homes received a filing, RealtyTrac Inc. reported Thursday. That number, up 18 percent from a year ago, includes default notices, scheduled auctions and bank repossessions.

Poll: Broad disapproval on health care 52 percent say Obama has mishandled issue, but 8 in 10 want better health system “I will not waste time with those who have made the calculation that it’s better politics to kill this plan than to improve it,” Obama said Wednesday night. “I won’t stand by while the special interests use the same old tactics to keep things exactly the way they are. If you misrepresent what’s in the plan, we’ll call you out.” The poll illustrates how difficult recent weeks have been for a president who, besides tackling health

Spotlighting how Obama lost ground this summer, his latest approval figures on health were essentially reversed since July, when 50 percent approved of his health effort and just 43 percent disapproved. The poll was taken over five days just before Obama’s speech to Congress. That speech reflected Obama’s determination to push ahead despite growing obstacles.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Public disapproval of President Barack Obama’s handling of health care has leaped to 52 percent, according to Associated Press-GfK poll that underscores the country’s glowering mood. Just 42 percent approve of the president’s work on the high-profile health issue.

Fifty percent approve and 49 percent disapprove of the overall job he is doing as president, compared to July, when those approving his performance clearly outnumbered those who were unhappy with it, 55 percent to 42 percent. The poll found that discontent with Obama’s health care effort is not isolated to Republicans. While nearly nine in 10 from the GOP disap-

People are about evenly split over what lawmakers should do next on health care: About four in 10 say they should keep trying to pass a bill this year while about the same number say they should start over again. Significantly, only about two in 10 say the health care system should be left as is, a positive sign for Obama.

WHO’S NEWS Panthers vote Peppers a captain

CHARLOTTE (AP) — His Carolina Panthers teammates insisted defensive end Julius Peppers’ offseason efforts to leave town hadn’t affected his standing in the locker room. On Wednesday they proved it through the ballot box, voting Peppers a defensive team captain. PEPPERS “It’s a tribute to what he has done here. He’s been the face of the defense for what, eight years now,” said linebacker Jon Beason, voted the other defensive captain. “I think guys know that he’s a quiet leader, but he takes care of his job. I think looking at it, making him team captain is saying, ’Look, we expect you to play like that.”’ Peppers had a career-high 14 1/2 sacks last season in the final year of his contract. He soon pleaded with the Panthers to let him leave in free agency. He said he had “maxed out” in Carolina and wanted to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. The Panthers still placed the franchise tag on him, which included a oneyear deal for an NFL-high $16.7 million. After skipping all offseason workouts, Peppers finally signed the tender. He showed up to training camp on time and hasn’t missed a practice

Grizzlies reach deal with Iverson

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The Grizzlies admitted Wednesday that they have agreed in principle to a contract with Allen Iverson, hours after the guard tweeted that he was heading to Memphis. The 34-year-old free agent tweeted earlier Wednesday that “God Chose Memphis as the IVERSON place that I will continue my career.” Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace said in a statement Wednesday afternoon that the team had agreed in principle to a contract with Iverson, and the team scheduled a Thursday news conference open to the public at FedExForum. “We anticipate signing him to a contract very soon,” Wallace said. Iverson’s agent, Leon Rose, did not respond to messages to his cell, office or from e-mail from The Associated Press. Iverson also said he met with Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley, G.M. Chris Wallace and coach Lionel Hollins. That meeting took place Monday in Atlanta. “I feel that they are committed to developing a winner and I know that I can help them to accomplish that. I feel that I can trust them,” Iverson added on his Twitter account.

West Stanly gets by Jackets in five sets

The Jackets’ Coree Coley had three kills and two blocks while Jennifer Jackson added three kills and a block. Natalie High contributed three kills, an ace and seven digs and teammate Nicole Helms had three kills, one ace and seven digs. Forest Hills is now 3-4 in the Rocky River Conference heading into Monday’s match at Central Academy.

Piedmont improves to 9-1 with straight-set victory from staff reports

UNIONVILLE Piedmont High improved to 9-1 overall and 5-1 in the Rocky River Conference with a straight-set win over Central Academy on Wednesday. Scores were 25-10, 25-23 and 25-11.

Falcons blank Mavs

In Fort Mill (S.C.), Nation Ford posted a 3-0 home win over Marvin Ridge. Scores were 2521, 25-17 and 25-20. Jillian Zimmerman led the Mavericks with 18 assists while teammate Sydney McCraw added 11 digs. Marvin Ridge, which fell to

4-4, plays at Sun Valley today starting at 6:30 p.m.

Comets down Monroe

Mavericks in swing Marvin Ridge off to 6-0 start, has yet to lose a set this season By David Sentendrey

E-J Correspondent

MARVIN With only one senior on the roster, the Marvin Ridge girls tennis team has not let youth become a hindrance, and have started the fall season undefeated at 6-0. In his first season as head coach, Michael Watson, who played collegiate tennis at Clemson University, feels fortunate that he has quality athletes with a higher ceiling to grow throughout high school. “We lost a few seniors last year, but we’re very fortunate, we’ve got a very deep team as far as talent,” Watson said. “We’re good this year and we’ll be good for years to come, which is exciting.” The Mavericks have dominated the competition so far. In fact, they haven’t lost a set yet. Their number one seed, hard-hitting junior Hannah Florian, leads Marvin Ridge. “Hannah has really done a phenomenal job,” Watson said. “She’s obviously not a senior, but she’s certainly a leader playing in the num-

ber one spot.” Florian, Union County’s player of the year as a freshman, began playing at the age of 8 when her family moved from Columbus, Ohio to North Carolina. “I really like to hit it hard, but I’m working on being more consistent and just going for my winners when I have the shot,” Florian said. “I’ve definitely been working on more top-spin and getting it in and waiting for the surefall to put it away.” Florian has been impressed with how many young players on the team are excelling. “I didn’t have the highest expectation, but everyone has stepped up and worked really hard over the summer,” she said. The Mavericks have been rotating through doubles partners, but Florian appears to have developed chemistry with junior Minali Nigam — the second seed. “I’m good at the net, but I’m not as aggressive so I don’t really poach at the net, because I get nervous,” Florian said.

Cavs edge Piedmont in Garner’s return from staff reports

UNIONVILLE In Nelson Garner’s return to Piedmont High, the Cuthbertson boys soccer team pulled out a 2-1 road win over the Panthers on Wednesday. Garner coached the boys soccer team at Piedmont for three seasons before resigning to take the job at Cuthbertson over the summer.

“It was tough and very emotional because I was obviously very close to all the guys over there,” said Garner. “To beat them is bittersweet, but it was fun, nonetheless, to get back and see everybody.” Matt Cureton scored on a penalty kick for the Cavaliers, who also got a goal from Josh Shomette on an assist by Jason Drain. Cuthbertson, which improved

to 5-1 overall and 4-0 in the Rocky River Conference, plays at home against West Stanly on Monday starting at 6:30 p.m.

Andon, Wright lead CATA

In Monroe, Johnny Andon and John Wright each scored two goals to lead Central Academy to an 8-4 home win over Berry Academy. Brendan Duncan, Jose Bedolla, John Helms-Brown and Bry-

ant Sonsire each had one goal for the Cougars. Duncan, a junior, leads the team in scoring with seven goals while Andon ranks second with six goals. Both are juniors. The win improved Central Academy to 2-4-1 overall and 2-2 in the Rocky River Conference. CATA travels to Forest Hills on Monday in a 6 p.m. start.

Sun Valley’s Austin Smith, right, moves in on an Olympic runner while Jeremy Busby drags him down. Busby leads the Spartans in tackles at 13 per game, and Smith is second at 10 per game. SV, now 2-0, moved up from fifth to fourth in the county poll this week after winning on the road again.

After being ranked fourth in Union County out of 11 teams in The Enquirer-Journal’s preseason prep football poll, Monroe High catapulted to No. 1 after ripping Parkwood 55-21 in Week 2. The Redhawks retained their status as No. 1 in the county after last week’s 54-0 home win over Mount Pleasant, and Monroe could remain perched their for a while. Coaches don’t like to look ahead on the schedule, but we do, and based on what we’ve seen thus far, Monroe will be favored to win its next seven games. Two of their next seven opponents might have a chance to beat Monroe on a good day — Piedmont (in Week 5) and Berry Academy (in Week 11), but barring anything

Oudin’s run ends in quarters NEW YORK (AP) — Melanie Oudin’s magical U.S. Open is over. Even the comeback kid couldn’t overturn this deficit. Showing signs of shakiness in her first Grand Slam quarterfinal, the 17-year-old Oudin got off to a slow start against No. 9-seeded Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark and never really recovered, losing 6-2, 6-2 Wednesday night. “This has been a great experience for me. I had a great run here,” the 70th-ranked Oudin told the crowd of 23,881 during an on-court interview right after the match, an honor usually reserved for the winner. “I hope to come back next year and do even better.” It’ll be hard to top her 2009 U.S. Open.

She upset four more established players — including three-time major champion Maria Sharapova and Beijing Olympic gold medalist Elena Dementieva — to become the youngest quarterfinalist at Flushing Meadows since Serena Williams in 1999. Making the story even better: Oudin’s last three victories each came after dropping the first set. But Wednesday’s start was quite inauspicious: She lost 14 of the first 18 points under the bright lights OUDIN in the big city. With “BELIEVE” stamped in all capital letters on the heels of her pink-and-yellow sneakers — and, up in the player guest box, her twin sister and coach wearing

Soccer

black T-shirts bearing that word, too — the 5-foot-6 Oudin certainly never gave up. Her groundstrokes let her down, though. Oudin made 43 unforced errors, 23 more than Wozniacki. A relative veteran by comparison, the 19-yearold Wozniacki leads the women’s tour in match victories this season. “I’m sorry that I won against Melanie today,” Wozniacki told the partisan fans, some of whom cheered when she double-faulted. “I know that many of you wanted Melanie to win.” Now the Dane will play her first Grand Slam semifinal against another 19-year-old, Yanina Wickmayer of Bel-

UA rallies for tie

In Monroe, Union Academy’s Nathaniel Peralta scored his second goal of the match with two minutes left in overtime to secure a 3-all tie with North Stanly. Peralta’s overtime goal was assisted by Jonathon Aiken. Peralta also scored the first goal of the match off an Ethan Daly assist. Kyle Lohn also scored the Cardinals, getting an assist from Cody Lloyd. Union Academy, now 2-1-1 on the season, plays at Monroe on Monday starting at 6:30 p.m.

In Marvin, the Mavericks scored two first-half goals and hung on for a 2-0 win over Hickory Ridge. Matt Risher headed in a corner kick from Garrett Condon midway through the half, and four minutes later, Condon punched it in off passes by Cullen Kelleher and Risher. “We came out and set the tone early on, and then second half, both teams just kind of went through the motions,” said Marvin Ridge coach Ray Fumo. “We had a couple breakaways we misfired on and Hickory Ridge missed a penalty kick, so if either of those things go the other way, then it could have been a totally different match.” Danny Cooper had the shutout in goal for the Mavericks (4-2-1). Marvin Ridge was scheduled to

gium. The 50th-ranked Wickmayer — never before past the second round at a major tournament — beat Kateryna Bondarenko of Ukraine 7-5, 6-4. The other women’s semifinal Friday features two far more familiar names: defending champion Serena Williams against 2005 champion Kim Clijsters. Never intimidated by the hostile crowd, Wozniacki was backed by her own cheering section of about 15 strong. Their applause and yells of encouragement were quite audible in a mostly empty Arthur Ashe Stadium as Oudin’s error count mounted in the early going. It took less than 10 minutes for Wozniacki to seize a 3-0 lead, cleverly constructing points.

Marban, Miles Miller, Daniel Cornejo, Eric Acosta and David Garcia added assists for Monroe. Rafael Martinez had four saves in goal for MHS, which is back in action on Monday at home against Union Academy.

Healthier Panthers feel good heading into opener CHARLOTTE (AP) — Carolina Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart had just participated in his first practice in nearly a month and his ninth in 49 workouts since the spring when fullback Brad Hoover playfully pounced. “I just told them we’re happy to have you back,” Hoover told Stewart while pointing at reporters, “and not eating cake on the sidelines.” Jokes were aplenty in the Panthers locker room Wednesday. Stewart, their No. 2 back, had returned from a left Achilles’ tendon injury on the same

day middle linebacker and defensive leader Jon Beason practiced for the first time since spraining the medial collateral ligament in his left knee Aug. 22. Suddenly a dreary, winless preseason had given way to optimism four days before Carolina opens against Philadelphia. Minus safety Chris Harris, who was limited with a leg injury, the Panthers had all their key players practicing together for the first time in a month. “They both looked really good,” coach John Fox said of Beason and Stewart. “They

were good to finally have back. That was the plan, and I thought they had a good day’s work.” Beason, who was injured in the second exhibition game against Miami, said he spent countless hours rehabbing. It included about 10 hours a day hooked up to a new-age stim machine, which helped increase blood flow to the knee and strengthen muscles around it. “It finds what muscle along the lines of the injury is not firing,” Beason said. “Then it forces all the other muscles to work harder so that that muscle has

less strain on it.” With Donovan McNabb and a healthy Brian Westbrook coming to Bank of America Stadium on Sunday, the Panthers need Beason. He led Carolina in tackles in each of the past two seasons and was voted to his first Pro Bowl last year. “When you don’t have your leader on the defense, which is your mike linebacker, then you have Diggsy banged up and Thomas Davis banged up, that’s the second level of your defense,” defensive tackle Damione Lewis said. “Those guys are your do-

alls, they cover you up when you mess up in the run gaps and they also help the secondary with underneath stuff. That’s the meat and potatoes on your defense, the linebacking corps.” Lewis said he expects Nick Hayden to start at the other tackle position vacated when Maake Kemoeatu was lost to a season-ending torn Achilles’ tendon. The other options are Louis Leonard, acquired from Cleveland last week, and Ra’Shon Harris, claimed off waivers Sunday from Pittsburgh.

Redhawks Continued from Page 1B

Monroe High’s Jamison Crowder (6) has scored six touchdowns over the past two games, helping his team jump out to a 3-0 record. The Redhawks are at Central Academy on Friday starting at 7 p.m.

unusual, the Redhawks should be 10-0 when they play Forest Hills at home on Nov. 6 in what will likely be for the Rocky River Conference title. Forest Hills was crowned as the best team in Union County last season after winning 11 games and reaching the state semifinals in the 2-AA playoffs. With most of their skill position players back, the Yellow Jackets are actually playing better now than they were at this time last season. They have lost games to Anson County and Pageland Central by an average of five points this year. Those same two teams beat Forest Hills by an average of 28 points in 2008. Berry is new to the conference and has won its first two games. It’s too early to say whether the Cardinals will contend in the league, but we’ll have a much better idea after they host the Jackets on Friday. Monroe and Forest Hills are among the county’s best teams, and Marvin Ridge has to be thrown in the same pile. The Mavericks play great defense, and their inexperienced offense (only three starters back) seems to be finding its rhythm. Off to a 3-0 start, Marvin Ridge should get a higher playoff seed this season. The Mavs, who finished 7-6 last season, and Forest Hills were the only teams in the county to win a playoff game in 2008. With 14 juniors and two sophomores starting, the Mavs should be even better in 2010 — especially with two major college prospects in that senior class in receiver KJ Brent and linebacker Vinnie Sunseri. Sun Valley has started off well, perhaps even better than expected, and has to be considered a sleeper in the Southern Carolina Conference at this point. Parkwood is also a contender for the SCC, a firstyear league that is made up of five Union County schools and Anson. The Rebels must get over the psychological hump of the 34-point home loss to Monroe, but with a big senior class, they should have enough leadership to stay on track. Weddington already has two more wins than a year ago, and the 2-1 Warriors have positioned themselves to make a run at a postseason berth.

Clemson’s Spiller, Jackets’ Dwyer highlight primetime matchup ATLANTA (AP) — Jonathan Dwyer wishes he was a little more agile, like Clemson’s C.J. Spiller. “When he has the ball in his hands, you better keep your eyes open because he might be down the field if you make one blink,” Dwyer said. “Any time he touches the ball, it’s going to be a show.” Not that Dwyer is any slouch himself. Georgia Tech’s junior running back is the reigning At-

lantic Coast Conference player of the year, and he broke off a 74-yard touchdown run the first time he touched the ball this season. Both Dwyer and Spiller are likely to put on quite a show when the No. 15 Yellow Jackets (1-0) host the Tigers (1-0) on Thursday night in the ACC opener for both schools. Spiller had one of the best games of his career against Georgia Tech as a freshman in 2006, becoming the only player

Tennis Continued from Page 1B “Minali has been really good at setting me up so I can go for the poach, and she’s really good at the net too, so when I hit a deep ball she can get up and poach the ball.” Nigam admits that singles matches can be stressful, but that doubles matches require a lot more strategy than just trying to out-hit your opponent. “You have to collaborate and work with your opponent,” Nigam said. Nigam hopes to work on defeating her mental block against certain opponents throughout the season. “For me, it’s just NIGAM trying to get through the tough points, how to win crucial points,” Nigam said. “So trying to improve my mental game.” Sophomore Danielle David has been making an impact as the number three seed for the Mavericks. “My first year we had six seniors on the team and they kind of ruled it I guess, they were the leaders,” David said. “I was number six last year and this year moving up three spots, it’s a big leadership switch this year.” As well as the number one through three seeds, Florian, Nigam and David are the three captains for the Mavericks, as voted upon by their teammates. “When you have that type of leadership at your one, two and three it makes a big difference because we’re so young,” Watson said. “We’re a

in Clemson history to have a 50yard touchdown run AND a 50yard scoring catch in the same game. Most remember the pass play, which was nothing more than a short throw he turned into something special. Spiller made two guys miss along the sideline and scampered all the way to the end zone, sparking the Tigers to a 31-7 victory. “We just had a simple curl play called,” coach Dabo Swinney recalled. “It should have been a tackle for no gain. We’ve

full, young team.” Watson is especially excited for one of his youngest players and her opportunity to grow through Marvin Ridge’s program — freshman fifth seed Mariel Emery. “Starting off, I thought she was very mature for just a freshman as far as in matches,” Watson said. “She was nervous the first match, but then every single match you can tell she had gotten more comfortable playing, just because as a freshman you’re new to the whole high school scene as far as tennis goes.” Emery, who feels her serve is her strongest part of her game, has shared time at the number one doubles with Florian. They teamed to beat Cuthbertson High, 8-3. The Cavs are led by two talented sisters – Kalli and McKenna Karas. “I knew there was an opportunity for me to be competitive and [start in the top six], it was just a matter of me taking it upon myself to get to where I want to be,” Emery said. The Mavericks stayed unbeaten with a 9-0 home win over Sun Valley on Wednesday, even though their top four seeds sat out. To win the Southern Carolina 3A/4A Conference, the Mavericks will have to go through Weddington. The two teams meet on Sept. 21. “They’re good,” Watson firmly said about the Warriors. “I’ve watched them play already; they’re deep like we are. They’ve got a strong one and two just like we do, and they’re going to be tough. We’re going to have to play hard to compete.” While Weddington awaits, the Mavericks will travel to face Charlotte Latin on Tuesday, and Parkwood the following day.

all seen the film many times. He just does what he does. He peeked the corner, made another guy miss and ran away from everybody.” Dwyer led the ACC in rushing with 1,395 yards. Spiller led the ACC in all-purpose yards (1,770), which included 629 yards on the ground while sharing playing time with James Davis. This year, Spiller has the job all to himself. He should be fresh against the Yellow Jackets, carrying the ball only four times in

a 37-14 victory over Middle Tennessee last Saturday. Georgia Tech also was able to rest most of its starters in the second half of a 37-17 victory over Jacksonville State. Dwyer said he won’t be paying much attention to his counterpart in the Clemson backfield. “I’ve never really done that before, so I won’t start doing it now,” the Georgia Tech runner said. “But it’s a big game. Who wouldn’t want to have some big numbers?”

Marvin Ridge’s Mariel Emery is making an impact as a freshman. The Mavericks are young, but their coach — who played at Clemson — believes they are talented and deep.

The Enquirer-Journal

Wives find ways to cool off hot husbands DEAR ABBY: At the age of 72, having had two spouses over the years, I need to put in my two cents regarding the letter from “Still Hot and Bothered in Georgia” (July 8). I have learned that some women won’t say “no!” to a husband’s amorous advances, especially in the morning. But they will try to distract him by scrubbing the tub, spotting a spider on the wall, feeding the cat or saying she forgot to fold the laundry and has to do it before it wrinkles. Whether it’s conscious or unconscious, they do it to cool their husbands off on a “hot” morning. “Still Hot and Bothered” may need to give some thought to what turns his wife on or off — especially the timing. After all, we are from Mars and they are from Venus. — ALEX IN BLUE BELL, PA. DEAR ALEX: I agree that timing is important. My office

Dear Abby Columnist was showered with responses from readers who were steamed over my response to that letter. Read on: DEAR ABBY: The guys and I enjoy reading your column out loud to see if we agree or not with your advice. We were unanimous in our disagreement with your advice to “Still Hot and Bothered.” We would have been torqued if our wife had stayed in the shower to clean it instead of coming to bed for a good romp. We also would have showered

with our wife to start the festivities early and then moved to the bedroom. Several of the guys said they’d have gotten into the shower and made the cleaning come to a halt. There’s a time for cleaning, and it’s not when your husband is waiting with his motor running. — THE GUYS IN THE ELECTRIC LAB, HARRISONBURG, VA. DEAR ABBY: I’m not against spontaneous cleaning (I do it myself), but the fact that the wife would rather clean than spend time with her husband tells me she’s either unable to read his signals or she just doesn’t care to be close and intimate with him. It also shows a lack of judgment, compassion and understanding on her part. If the situation were reversed and he had decided he’d rather watch sports than be with his wife, I’m sure she would have

Horoscopes Sept. 10, 2009

Chances are you have a valuable ally who has wanted to help you for a long time but never had the means. That opportunity might present itself to your friend who, true to his or her word, will come through in the year ahead. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Even if returns aren’t lavish, your material gains should bring some satisfaction. Keep expectations within reasonable bounds, and you won’t be disappointed. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — It’s always smart to closely observe persons whose style and methods you admire. Not everything you learn will be easily adapted to your lifestyle, but much of it could. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Put yourself out to gain the confidence of someone whose support you need, and you might even gain a new friend in the process. Be patient, and don’t come on too strong.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — An old friend might go out on a limb and offer some sage advice. Accept it graciously — it could provide a brand-new perspective. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If you believe aggression will achieve an important objective, it won’t. The gains will collapse the moment your back is turned. Apply your smarts to find success.
