Culinary Kids Create C Sweet Success

Business & Farm, Page 5A


hildren are naturally curious when it comes to the ways of the kitchen, and parents are equally curious about how to include them in cooking and baking activities. “The best way to promote lifelong healthy eating is to get kids involved in cooking at an early age,” said Mitzi Dulan, registered dietitian and author. “Promoting the kitchen as a fun gathering place for the whole family will help build a positive attitude towards enjoying food.” With a little adult assistance, kids can easily learn their way around the kitchen and help create fun meals and snacks. “Introduce kids to the kitchen by having them help prepare their own snacks,” Dulan said. “A favorite snack for my children is a honey and peanut butter sandwich. Even very young kids can use a spoon to spread honey and peanut butter on whole wheat bread or a tortilla.” Here are three simple steps to heighten your child’s desire to learn and be involved in the kitchen: Tour the kitchen. Sure they eat there, but take time to familiarize them with measuring cups, cutting boards, hot pads and the general layout of the kitchen. Point out where kitchen staples such as honey, spices and other dry ingredients are stored and use this time as an invitation to talk about flavors and favorite tastes. Make meal planning a family event. Browse through cookbooks, old family recipes or visit for kid-friendly and tasty recipes. Invite kids to pick at least one recipe to make each week to get them involved and interested in the family’s eating habits. Assist your little chef. Safety is a top priority for kids in the kitchen — adults should be active participants and lead by example. Always demonstrate safe kitchen practices — from knife skills and cleanliness to age-appropriate cooking activities. The National Honey Board provides a collection of kid-friendly recipes and fun facts in the “From Honey Bees to Brain Freeze Kid’s Guide to Cooking with Honey” brochure, including colorful illustrations and photography.

Honey Berry Waffle Sandwich

Makes 4 servings 1 1/2 cups fresh berries*, divided 1 tablespoon butter 1/3 cup honey 8 frozen waffles, toasted To prepare honey syrup, purée 1/2 cup berries in a blender or food processor; set aside. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add honey and bring to a boil; simmer 2 to 3 minutes, then add berry purée. Continue to simmer 2 to 3 minutes more until syrup thickens slightly. Set aside and keep warm. For each serving, place 2 waffles on plate. Top one waffle with 1/4 cup fresh berries. Drizzle with 1/4 of syrup, and top sandwich with remaining waffle. *Raspberries, strawberries and blueberries work well.

WEDNESDAY, January 6, 2010 Mitzi Dulan offers seven tips for raising food-smart kids 1. Introduce a variety of foods. The key to expanding kids’ food preferences is to try new flavors early and often. Be persistent — it can take 5 to 20 times of trying a new food before your child actually enjoys it. 2. Avoid being a short-order cook. It’s fine to frequently include some of their favorite foods, but you don’t want to end up making four different meals each night for everyone in the family. 3. Switch to whole grains. Bread, pasta, pancakes, tortillas, pitas, cereal, crackers and brown rice. It might not always be possible to eat whole grains when eating out, but it should be a no-brainer when you are making meals at home. 4. Put the brakes on fast food. Fast food can seem like a great option when you are pressed for time, but try to limit the number of times you eat fast food. Instead, make a double batch of favorite foods and freeze half for later. 5. Make activity a family affair. Go for a family bike ride or walk. Find local tennis courts, trails or a track and get moving! 6. Ask for their help. Get children involved with grocery shopping. Make it fun by exploring colors and shapes in the produce section. Let kids select a new fruit or vegetable to try at home. 7. Look for pure foods. Buy foods with short ingredient lists or single ingredient foods like honey and kiwi.

Husband, jailed for murder, given chance to save property

OXFORD — A foreclosure sale has been postponed for the burned home of slain Granville County woman Kelly Currin Morris and her husband, Scott. The sale, which was set for Tuesday morning in the lobby of the county courthouse, was reset to 1:30 p.m. Feb. 9 to provide additional time to allow Scott Morris “a reinstatement, a modification or a payoff of the loan” on the home, which is at 3220 Tump Wilkins Road southeast of Stem. This is according to a document filed by Carol Lindsley, a paralegal representing the substitute trustee, Brock & Scott, a law firm based in WinstonSalem. Scott Morris, 35, of 113 W. Church St., Creedmoor, since Nov. 17 has remained jailed without bond on a charge of first-degree murder and the burning of the house, both in connection with the Sept. 3, 2008, disappearance of Kelly

The Zoning Board of Adjustment on Tuesday afternoon approved a special use permit for the future Henderson Collegiate Charter School at the southwest corner of County Home Road and Health Center Road, but not without school organizers being surprised by an opposition statement by their future neighbor. While Anthony Peace, owner and administrator of GreenBullock Assisted Living Center, gave a page of aesthetic and environmental reasons against the future school’s location, the board was satisfied with the future school leadership’s proposal. Board member Duane Townes made the motion for the special use permit, with a second by board member Richard Brand and no dissenting votes in the city matter. Board member Edward Spain was absent, but he could not have voted because he is a Vance County appointee. Peace shook hands with future school co-founder Eric Sanchez moments after the vote. The plan is for the future school to be in modular units on county-owned property adjacent to the former Vance Manor. And the future school will be close to the Addiction Recovery Center for Men. The County Commission on Monday gave the go-ahead to the future school for a lease at $1 each year of the future school’s

Tiffany Varner looks through certified nursing assistant jobs at the North Carolina Employment Security Commission office in Henderson Tuesday afternoon. Varner, who has been out of work for three weeks, has found a few CNA jobs but the pay has not been what she is looking for. By AL WHELESS Daily Dispatch Writer

The Kerr-Tar Region experienced very little change in jobless rates from October to November, according to statistics released Tuesday by the North Carolina Security Employment Commission. The comparisons included: • Vance — 13.6 percent to 13.5 percent. • Warren — 12.9 percent to 12.8 percent. • Granville — 10.3 percent to 10.5 percent. • Franklin — 9.6 percent to 10.2 percent.

• Person — 10.2 percent to 10.7 percent. • Caswell — 12.3 percent to 12.2 percent. In November, Orange County had the lowest unemployment rate at 6.3 percent, and Edgecombe County had the highest at 16.6 percent. The statewide unemployment rate in November dipped a fraction to 10.8 percent, from 10.9 percent in October. The monthly estimate has yo-yoed slightly above and below 11 percent since February. It peaked at 11.1 percent in May. “It’s almost a nonevent.” said John Connaughton, an econo-

Vance lags in paying health insurance bill By AL WHELESS Daily Dispatch Writer

An auditor reminded Vance Commissioners Monday night of the County’s unpaid obligation of $955,899 for 20082009 for health insurance for its 390 active and retired employees. The total number includes 57 law enforcement officers — in either status — through the Sheriff’s Department. The large remaining balance was created when the county could only afford to pay $332,545 of its annual required contribution of $1,288,444 toward the OPEB (Other Post Employment Benefits) liability, according to Mike Brafford. He is one of the partners in the certified public accounting firm of Phillips, Dorsey, Thomas, Waters & Brafford. “Over the years, that number is going Please see VANCE, page 4A

Carver reading club visits Britthaven Members of Carver’s One Step Above Reading Club went on a field trip to Britthaven of Henderson recently to make a special donation and extend holiday greetings to its residents. Club members sang Christmas carols throughout the nursing home and even took special moments to sing solos to bedridden residents and to give hugs and words of holiday cheer to all they encountered. Reading club sponsor Marion B. Perry presented two pictures designed by Henri Parham during their visit. The pictures were made from shells collected on the beaches in Siesta Keys, Fla. Parham used the shells to spell out the words “Peace” and “Love” in a creative pattern. “She hoped the pictures would be an uplifting sight for the residents as well as visitors who come to the nursing home for many years,” said Perry. Pictured are One Step Above Reading Club members (left to right) Tyere Wiggins, Zachary Short, Jarius Harris, Anial Kearney, Isis Taylor, Zitlaly Rodrequez and Tiquririan Powell along with Perry and Britthaven Assistant Activity Coordinator Sandra Harris.

three-year stay. Organizers of the future school want to set up a permanent location at what is to be the Zene Street project. The goal of the Zene Street project is to transform a former 86,000 square-foot tobacco warehouse into a community, educational, medical and retail center. During the Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting, Sanchez said the future school would be ready at the beginning of July and would start serving approximately 100-110 fourth grade students. Peace said, “We’re going to lose a very nice, natural view in front of the area I’ve been sitting at for the last, almost 40 years.” Additionally, Peace said Health Center Road is a dead-end drive and is not designed or set up to accommodate students and, noting most Americans do not do carpooling, estimated approximately 50 vehicles would be turning in. “If I had someone that needed emergency care around the time that his students are coming into their school, I may have to make the ambulance wait” because of the single lane of Health Center Road and the lack of an immediate turnaround point, Peace said. “Now, I don’t know what our county commissioners were thinking, but the school is going to be placed right smack dab in front of

Currin Morris. An affidavit filed at the courthouse by Wells Fargo Bank said Scott Morris defaulted on his payments, with the last payment made having been for the period ending Sept. 30, 2008. The documentation shows the current principal balance is $219,906 plus interest at a rate of 6.13 percent each year from the last payment made, along with any other charges and costs. Wells Fargo Bank cited a note signed Feb. 20, 2007, by Scott Morris, promising to pay a sum of $224,000 plus interest to the lender, American Home Mortgage, which later filed for bankruptcy protection. Additionally, Wells Fargo Bank cited as evidence the deed signed by Scott Morris and Kelly Currin Morris and recorded Feb. 22, 2007. The day after Kelly Currin Morris disappeared, the house was on fire and her 2005 Honda Accord was found approximately

ors. Smith said the future school needs a location by the end of June and added, “We want to be good neighbors. We want to make a good impact on the community as a whole, including Mr. Peace’s facility.” Sanchez said the school year is 10 months, with six months of them being in cold weather. And Sanchez said that students would be outside approximately 45 minutes a day in the warm months and that the future school’s media center would double as a multi-purpose room for physical activities. “I am a little taken aback with Mr. Peace’s opposition because we spoke at length on Saturday and really talked about solutions to all these things,” Sanchez said. Sanchez said that entry times of students would be on a staggered basis and that neither entry times nor departures would conflict with shift changes of Peace’s employees. “And, also, carpooling actually will be a real thing at our school,” Sanchez added.

On Sept. 12, 2008, the State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) concluded the house fire had been set deliberately. Then-Sheriff David Smith next declared Scott Morris a person of interest in the disappearance of Kelly Currin Morris and in connection with the arson. The first SBI documents made public in the case showed statements by Scott Morris about the vanishing of Kelly Currin Morris were inconsistent. Additionally, the SBI in documents said that Scott Morris and Kelly Currin Morris had marital problems and that sources specifically said the couple had separated before and had discussed divorcing. Authorities on Nov. 16 found the remains of Kelly Currin Morris off Sam Moss Hayes Road. Kelly Currin Morris

which seeks to build the movement to eliminate educational inequity by enlisting the nation’s most promising future leaders in the effort. Burnette taught in Franklin County before deciding to become an attorney in the Tri-County area. Burnette praised Sanchez and future school cofounder Carice Cantelupe, both of whom also were in the Teach for America program. Burnette noted that Sanchez taught at Eaton Johnson Middle School, that Cantelupe taught at Pinkston Street Elementary School and that Cantelupe is a national board certified teacher. Burnette said Sanchez told her, “I love it here. I love the kids here and I want to be here.” Nancy Jo Smith, who chairs the board of the future school and who leads the future school’s location committee, said Clark Elementary is county public schools property and is unavailable for assessment. The County Board of Education has claimed the final say on the Clark building’s fate after the doors are shut. Additionally, Smith said that Vance Manor is located on a previously undivided parcel and that it is under grant for assessment with community activist Deryl Von Williams, who is working with the county government on Williams’ future endeav-

Peace additionally said that the future school could be located at the tobe-closed Clark Street Elementary campus and that neighborhood residents are accustomed to large volumes of traffic. Renee Terry, a board member of the future school, said, “Mr. Peace made it sound like we’re going to have a hundred kids running up and down the road there all crazy, yelling, making noise and things like that. That’s not true.” “This school is about discipline,” Terry said. “It’s about teaching kids to be good citizens. It’s about teaching people to be productive citizens in our community.” “I mean, I know Mr. Peace is concerned about losing his view, but we need to look at the overall community view of what we want to see in this community,” Terry added.

Oxford panel to discuss Internet cafe license fees By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer

OXFORD — A meeting of the Oxford City Commission’s Finance Committee is set for noon Thursday to discuss privilege license fees on sweepstakes establishments. The committee, which is chaired by new Commissioner Danny Currin, will be meeting after Mayor Al Woodlief at Monday evening’s commission agenda meeting proposed charging a tax of $500 per machine per year. The mayor noted an Internet cafe is open by the entrance to the Hilltop Village shopping center off Business U.S. 158/Williamsboro Street and said another one is about to open at the former Alan Vester automobile dealership off the Interstate 85/N.C. 96 interchange, next to the Comfort Inn & Suites and across from the Boyd auto dealership. Woodlief told the commission Monday evening that, according to City Accounting Technician Phyllis Blackwell, “We’ve got a great many of these in the city that probably we will not be able to charge until

June when the privilege license comes due, but with any new ones coming in we would be able to charge this.” And Woodlief told the commission the machines take in anywhere from $3,000 to $12,000 daily. “Now what this is, it’s a real fine line about playing poker on a poker machine,” Woodlief told the commission. “What you do, you go in and you sit down and you buy a phone card in order to play. And you play and supposedly, rather than adding minutes to that phone card, you’re actually paid off in the money from the person that has it in the store,” Woodlief said. City Manager Mark Donham told the commission that, “It’s really gambling, is what it is” and added that Internet cafes figured out a way to do so to comply with existing laws. Mayor Pro Tem Howard Herring raised questions about whether the municipal government is supporting gambling and about what kind of information the city is going to provide religious groups or organizations should the commission

approve a $500 tax. Woodlief advised Herring that the answer would be, “If anything, the city is trying to deter this from coming here and taking away from the state-approved lottery that goes to the school system.” And Woodlief said he thinks the churches would appreciate the city trying to obtain revenue that would go back into the general fund and that the money would trickle back into the community. Donham said that, of the Internet cafes, “We looked at just not allowing them to open, but they came in very quickly with their legal arguments and stated that if we wanted to do that, then we might be facing a lawsuit.” The committee meeting will be in the mayor’s conference room at City Hall, 300 Williamsboro St., with the agenda additionally to include a discussion about the cutting of grass at Elmwood Cemetery off Hillsboro Street. Commission committee meetings are open to the public. Contact the writer at bwest@

JOBLESS, from page one ton said. North Carolina’s unemployment rate has been worse than the national average for more than a year. The U.S. jobless rate was 10 percent in November. Since November 2008, when North Carolina’s jobless rate was 7.5 percent, the state has paid more than $4.3 billion in unemployment benefits. To keep up with the streams of jobless workers entitled to help, the state Employment Security Commission borrowed $1.47 billion from the federal government, making it the sixthbiggest borrower behind

California, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio in turning to Washington to shore up state unemployment compensation accounts. Connaughton is forecasting a weak jobs recovery for workers next year, with the state adding just 32,800 net jobs. The main problem is that banks are refusing to lend to small businesses, which generate most new jobs, or consumers who may want to buy big-ticket items like appliances and cars but fall short of peak credit scores, he said. Banks now hold more than $1 trillion in excess

cash, a fivefold increase since middle of 2008, he said. “Technically, the economy is better. But because of a variety of troubles caused by this recession, particularly in the financial sector, we’re just not seeing the kind of expansion that we’re used to seeing coming out of a recession,” Connaughton said. “There are no signs in the foreseeable future that will change.” Contact the writer at Associated Press writer Emery P. Dalesio contributed to this story.

VANCE, from page one to get a lot bigger” Brafford said. Besides the $955,899 for 2008-2009, he was referring to the $13,774,646 which represents the future liability for health insurance costs for the 390 active and retired employees. Questioned by Commissioner Danny Wright, Brafford said the total unpaid liability amount of nearly $13.8 million shouldn’t affect the county’s bond rating.

In other business Monday night, the board designated February as Black History Month in Vance. In another matter, the commissioners agreed to appropriate $7,500 from the Contingency Fund for general assistance at the Department of Social Services. Because K-9 Officer Argo has been retired due to medical reasons, the board approved Sheriff Peter White’s request to declare

the dog surplus and sell him to his partner/trainer, Sgt. Wesley Parrish, for a dollar. The same procedure has been followed in the past with other retiring canine officers. In other business Monday night, the board agreed to hold its Winter Retreat on Feb. 18 at Ambassador Inn & Suites. Contact the writer at

change since Oct. 9, 2008. â&#x20AC;˘ Heating oil futures settled up less than a cent at $2.1941, well beyond the highest prices of 2009. â&#x20AC;˘ Gasoline futures closed more than 2 cents higher at $2.125, the highest since Oct. 3, 2008. By the weekend the average gallon of gas in the U.S. will hit $2.70, eclipsing the peak for 2009, and will push $3 by spring, predicted OPISâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Tom Kloza. One of the breaks consumers got in 2009 was cheap energy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too soon to tell if the rising prices right are setting the trend for 2010, though Peter Beutel of Cameron Hanover called sharply higher heating oil prices an â&#x20AC;&#x153;ominous sign for the year ahead.â&#x20AC;? Pump prices rose less than a penny overnight to $2.667 a gallon Tuesday, according to auto club AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Services.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some back of the envelope arithmetic puts the current U.S. fuel bill at about $1.066 billion each day,â&#x20AC;? Kloza wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A year ago, that daily outlay was about $625 million.â&#x20AC;? Already, gas costs $1 more a gallon than a year ago, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costing a typical motorist about $50 more a month. Also on Nymex, after a meteorologists predicted a thawing out around the Chicago area by the end of the month, natural gas futures fell 24.7 cents to settle at $5.639. Natural gas is used more prominently in the Midwest to heat homes than in the East. In London, Brent crude for February delivery rose 47 cents to settle at $80.59 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange.

Tracing the ascension of crude, up 14 percent since mid-December, energy prices across the board are catching up. On Tuesday, benchmark crude prices closed higher than they had on any day last year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part economic and part meteorologic. Vicious pockets of cold stretched from the Northeast to the South, where farmers in the Florida panhandle tried to save tomato and strawberry crops. Four deaths in Tennessee were blamed on low temperatures. The frigid blast has squeezed heating oil supplies in some areas during a year when demand had been very weak and refineries have been operating at low levels. Huge surpluses have been falling in recent weeks, contributing to prices already driven higher by the falling dollar. When the dollar falls, investors holding stronger currency can essentially buy more dollar-based crude and they have, doubling oil prices last year. Look at what happened this week: â&#x20AC;˘ Crude prices closed up 26 cents at $$81.77 a barrel Tuesday, the highest settlement price on the New York Mercantile Ex-

Vance County Schools release exam schedule

Rep. Wray discusses character traits, page program with students at L.B. Yancey During American Education Week, Rep. Michael Wray visited L.B. Yancey Elementary School. Wray was invited to the school by Jameel Williams, former president of the Vance County Education Association and current board member of the N.C. Association of Educators and the National Education Association. Williams serves as the state president for the N.C. Education Support Professional Association. While at L.B. Yancey, Wray visited with second, fourth and fifth graders. He talked with the students about his job and about character traits that would help them succeed in life. He encouraged the students to participate in the page program, where high school students can come to Raleigh and spend a week working with a senator or representative and learning about how the governmental system works. At the close of his visit, Wray (center) was presented a L.B. Yancey Elementary School t-shirt by Principal Clarence Hicks (right) and Williams.

Vance County Schools will administer first semester exams to high school students at Northern and Southern Vance high schools Jan. 12-15. Each day, the exams begin at 8 a.m. Students will have lunch each day before school dismissal at 1:30 p.m. Students at Eaton-Johnson and Henderson middle schools will be dismissed for these four days at 1:45 p.m. each day, because they share school buses with the high school students. First-period exams will be administered on Jan. 12, with second-period exams held on Jan. 13. Students will take their

third-period exams on Jan. 14, followed by the final day of exams when fourthperiod exams will be administered on Jan. 15. Make-up exams can be scheduled in the afternoon of each testing day with the permission of the teacher and principal. All make-up exams must be completed within 10 days of any missed exams. Students at the Early College High School took exams and completed their first semester prior to the Christmas break. Western Vance High School is following its own exam schedule so that mid-year graduation ceremonies can take place on Jan. 15.

South Granville Primary Care sponsors art contest Granville Health System recently announced the winners of the ButnerStem Elementary School’s 2009 “Kids Living Healthy” artwork contest at the South Granville Primary Care facility in Butner. The program is a wellness initiative designed by Granville Health System to encourage students and their families to live healthy lifestyles. Students were challenged to select themes such as nutrition, exercise or other ways to stay healthy and illustrate their ideas through individual pieces of art. More than 400 students took part in the contest. The judging committee included Tom Lane, mayor of the Town of Butner; James Lumpkins, Granville County commissioner and Granville Health System board of trustees member; Shields Blackwell, director of the Granville Education Foundation; and Scott Thomas, marketing director for Granville Health System. “This was a fantastic program for our local students,” said Dr. Joanne Fruth. “Supporting the health and wellness of our children is an important part of what we do here at South Granville Primary Care.

We were so pleased to host the gallery and everyone enjoyed the opportunity to share this experience with the community.” The contest included four levels of participation: prekindergarten and kindergarten, first grade, second and third grades, and fourth and fifth grades. A number of prizes were awarded, including certificates, ribbons and savings bonds. Winners were announced during the open-house gallery showing for students, their families and the community at South Granville Primary Care. The winners were: first place, Lea Goss (kindergarten), Madyson Cheek (first grade/tied), Lily Tunstall (first grade/tied), Ashton Humphrey (second grade) and Chassidy Averette (fourth grade); second place, Rebecca Snyder (kindergarten), Seth Jones (first grade), Hannah Jackson (third grade) and Caitlynn Taylor (fourth grade); third place, Blake Fletcher (pre-kindergarten), Emma Oliver (first grade), Anthony Gallagher (second grade) and Steven Faulkner (fifth grade). “We were thrilled to partner with Granville Health System on this important wellness initiative,” said

Gus Gillespie, principal of Butner-Stem Elementary School. “Our students did a great job. We are very impressed with the quality of work they produced. We certainly have a very talented group of students!” “Each one of our students thoroughly enjoyed participating in the ‘Kids Living Healthy’ program,” said Janet Randazzo, art teacher at Butner-Stem Elementary School. “They were so proud to display their work at the South Granville Primary Care gallery showing.” Hundreds were in attendance for the open house gallery. Artwork covered most of the hallways throughout the primary care facility. Family members posed for photos next to their favorite submissions as students proudly pointed out both their creations, and those of their classmates. “Nutrition and fitness should always play important roles in the lives of our students and their families. Our ‘Kids Living Healthy’ program takes a creative approach toward effectively

When a person has two differentcolored eyes (Hetero-chromia) , it may be the result of direct injury to the eye. The colored portion of the eye (iris) has pigment-containing cells that determine a person’s eye color. Any injury that damages these cells will change the color of the eye. Sometimes damages to the pigment-producing cells may be caused by something as simple as an allergic reaction to eyedrops or another eye irritant. Different-colored eyes can also be a manifestation of Waardenburg syndrome, a genetic disease first identified in the 1950s that is generally characterized by facial abnormalities. the type I form of the disease may bring displacement of the inner folds of the eyelids or tear ducts, as well.

Our Opinion

Vance overdue for EDC director Warren County has found its man. Will Vance be far behind? It was good to see our neighbor to the east authorizing the employment of an economic developer on Monday. Alfred Papa will start Jan. 19 as the director of the Warren County Economic Development Commission. His appointment was recommended by the commission last week and made official by the Warren commissioners on Monday. One member of the Warren board put up a protest against the hiring, but it may not be fair to say that Warren’s past economic developers have not had a positive impact. No one can really know where Warren would be right now if not for the previous developer’s work during his four-year tenure and the efforts of those before him. It’s a safe assumption that the developer’s salary is a small investment for the dividends that have been returned. Warren and Vance had been in the same boat through 2009. Warren said goodbye to John Church last January when he left to take a similar job in Fuquay-Varina. Vance is going on 13 months now without a permanent, full-time director. Long-time EDC chief Benny Finch retired in December 2008. After getting 32 applicants and apparently not being pleased with any of them, Vance hired an interim under a three-month contract in mid-November. Presumably he’s halfway through his interim term. Recruitment efforts were being renewed after, as Vance’s county manager said, “While we had very good applicants initially for the position, we just did not find the right individual.” We are not privy to the ins and outs of how 32 applicants fell short of the mark for Vance’s post, but it’s certainly disappointing. As an interim, James Hinkle is making more money than Warren’s permanent director. And Vance’s salary range on the upper end is $23,000 more than what Warren is paying. Despite our county’s challenges on the economic front, we can’t help but believe that business recruitment and development in Vance County and the city of Henderson would be an appealing opportunity for an up-and-coming developer who wants to make his — or her — mark. Every day that passes for Vance without a full-time, permanent, dedicated focus on economic development is an opportunity lost to help reduce our unemployment and bury our economic woes. We sincerely trust our EDC and county commissioners are getting close to bringing a “Papa” to Vance.

Quotable “This report contains some welcome news and yet another warning sign. Health care spending as a percentage of GDP (gross domestic product) is rising at an unsustainable rate. It is clear that we need health insurance reform now.” Jonathan Blum, a top official at the government’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, in describing about a report stating that U.S. health care spending totaled $2.3 trillion in 2008 and accounted for more than 16 percent of the nation’s economic output.

Farewell to a fond friend I lost a close, old friend last weekend. It was an agonizing death, spread out over two days after a grievous, accidental injury suffered in a mindless moment. For the most part, we had been companions since 1973, when I was 31. The beginning of the end loomed Saturday afternoon when I got back from WalMart and decided to try out my new moustache trimmer. It came with several attachments of various cutting lengths, and I chose the closest because of the resemblance to what had worked on my previous shaver of a different brand. Also, the motor in my latest depilatory weapon was more powerful, making the blade vibrate much faster than my previous device. That should have warned me against using the same sloppy approach it had tolerated. “Appearances can be deceiving” is a cliche that has hung around for good reason. The first stroke downward with the chosen attachment produced what looked like a

“before” Before picture in a Rogaine TV commercial. After being forced to follow through for the sake of uniformity, I tried to Al minimize Wheless the effect by Daily Dispatch shrinking Writer the victim. While cutting After from the bottom was thereby required, so was shortening both sides to reduce the handle bar that had seemed to grow in the wreckage. Both military-like campaigns were carried out nearly simultaneously, with mounting casualties. The results were catastrophic. A miniature lawn mower

appeared to have produced a wide swath between my upper lip and the skinny strip of moustache left hanging on for dear life beneath my nose. As for the left and right flanks, one of them had been annihilated by the new trimmer that I now regarded as the enemy. The other side had been sheared at a drastic angle that would have been pleasing only to a field surgeon during the Civil War. There was just one thing to do, but I postponed the inevitable by waiting until my wife came home from shopping to get her evaluation. It turned out to be the same as mine, but arrived through sad eyes instead of her mouth. Like a cattle drover who dreaded training the sights of his Winchester 94 on the head of his dying horse, I put off the act of mercy as long as I could. I got up late on Sunday morning, made coffee and did time-killing things around the house until mid-afternoon. When the acceptance of the inevitable finally took over, I

went straight to the bathroom cabinet where lay the machine which was needed to fix the problem it had created. Actually, I had allowed myself to realize by then that I had caused the problem. I took it like a man, with no crying out, as the remaining hairs fell like autumn leaves into the sink. I had made a similar mistake maybe 15 years ago, and had ended up clearing the deck then, as well. However, I remember feeling sort of naked, which led to starting restoration within a week. This go around, the question of whether my moustache stays a thing of the past will be answered one day at a time. I feel more comfortable with the freshly bare territory outside myself that I see in the mirror. Maybe it’s because I like myself inside better these days. After all, that’s where happiness has to come from. Don’t you think? Contact the writer at awheless@

Letters to the Editor Giving thanks for the past year At the end of the year past and the beginning of the new year, I like to stop and reflect on the people that are hard at work to make Warren County a better place for all of us. First of all, I would like to thank the law enforcement agencies, town, county, state and the firemen for all that they do to keep us safe. For all of them, I give my thanks for a job well done. I would also like to think the folks at the Warren County Library. It is beautiful and you all have been very helpful and informative. I feel so relaxed when I attend meetings there. Sometimes I just sit and read, this is most enjoyable.

No realm of American life is as auspiciously fecund with precisely C.E. DeShields such conditions as air travel. So Littleton — put up or shut up.

A no-fly list? Count me in Almost exactly 10 years ago, I boarded a Northwest Airlines plane in Minneapolis. As I started toward my veal-pen seat in steerage, I saw the faces of the preboarded aristocrats in business class. But before I could glare at them with proletarian rage and envy, I heard a loud bang and felt a sharp pain on the top of my head. Everyone looked to see what the sound was; even the two flight attendants chatting like village women around the well broke off their no-doubt-vital conversation. The source of the preflight disturbance? I’d smacked my enormous gourd of a head on a television hanging from the ceiling above the center aisle that hadn’t been stowed for boarding. I lifted my hand to my scalp and drew back a palm glistening with fresh blood. The response from the flight attendants? A shrug from one and the faint hint of a chuckle from another. They went back to their conversation. Dumbfounded, I proceeded to my seat to nurse my head wound, fuming over the fact that customer service at even the most rancid highway-rest-stop taco joint requires providing a moist towelette for seeping head wounds. It’s not the worst flight-fromhell story. Heck, it’s not even my worst flight-from-hell story. So what’s my point? Well, for starters, it’s a small reminder that flying before 9/11 was already awful, and it has only become worse. Over the weekend, an idiot walked the wrong way through a secure exit for arriving passengers at Newark airport. An entire terminal was shut down so that everybody on the “sterile” side of the security barriers could be herded back out and rescreened.

The entire process took just under seven hours. The cascading delays disrupted air travel worldwide. They didn’t even catch the doofus who caused the ruckus. No doubt, if they’d announced his location over the paging system, he’d have been drawn and quartered by a mob of traveling salesmen from 3M and a gaggle of middle school girls returning from a Jonah volleyball Goldberg tournament. Now, I Tribune Media should back Services up. When I referred to the “sterile” side of the security barrier, I was using the term narrowly, to refer to folks who’d been through the metal detectors. Because to use the word “sterile” in its usual context in a sentence with “airports” — those belching Petri dishes of bathroom effluence and unidentifiable noisome miasma — would be a grotesque abrogation of journalistic trust. According to the latest epidemiological research, airports reside somewhere between no-frills Haitian brothels and Penn State fraternity bathrooms when it comes to hygiene. USA Today recently surveyed the health inspection records of airport restaurants and found that serious code violations were as commonplace as rat and mouse droppings; 77 percent of 35 restaurants reviewed at Reagan National Airport had at least one major violation. I could go on, of course. The petty humiliations, the routine deceptions from airline employees desperate to rid themselves of

WEDNESDAY Afternoon / Evening







One year ago: Congress opened for business at the dawn of a new Democratic era with vows to fix the crisis-ridden economy; Republicans pledged cooperation in Congress as well as with President-elect Barack Obama — to a point. Obama vowed to “bring a longoverdue sense of responsibility and accountability to Washington” and called the need for budget reform “an absolute necessity.”

FSU appeal rejected, NCAA upholds sanctions

SAN FRANCISCO — Randy Johnson looked so awkward on the mound early in his career, that shaggy hair dangling down his neck as he fired a blazing fastball in every direction but the strike zone. Now, after 22 major league seasons, The Big Unit is walking away from baseball as one of the game’s greatest pitchers. The 6-foot-10 Johnson announced his retirement on a conference call Tuesday, a decision that had been expected from the overpowering left-hander who reached 300 wins last June. “I really wanted to go out on my terms,” Johnson said. “I just feel like there’s not a lot more for me to do in this game. I just think it’s a natural progression when you play this long. Eventually you have to say it’s time.” A five-time Cy Young Award winner, the 46-year-old Johnson accomplished just about everything in his remarkable career that a player hopes for in baseball. He owns a World Series ring and co-MVP honors, and was a 10-time AllStar. He threw two nohitters, including a perfect game, and ranks second on the career strikeout list. Johnson finishes with a record of 303-166 and

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The NCAA has upheld its decision to vacate up to 14 victories from former football coach Bobby Bowden as part of Florida State’s penalty in an academic cheating scandal. Bowden retired as major college football’s second most winning coach with 389 wins after Florida State’s 33-21 Gator Bowl victory over West Virginia, Jan. 1. Penn State’s Joe Paterno, who is still coaching, has 394 wins. The 80-year-old Bowden was in California on Tuesday to present a Fellowship of Christian Athletes award named after him and not Bowden immediately available to comment on the decision. University officials, however, said they were surprised and disappointed by the NCAA decision. “We believed that our administration did everything it possibly could to ferret out any and all improprieties in this matter,” Florida State athletic director Randy Spetman said. The NCAA could take wins away in as many as 10 Florida State athletic programs, including possibly stripping Florida State of one of three straight NCAA track championships won between 20062008.

Warren Co. closes big deficit, but Bunn holds on for win By KELLEN HOLTZMAN Dispatch Sports Writer

WARRENTON — A 20-0 run spanning two quarters and a 20-7 run to close a game usually spells a victory in basketball. Unfortunately for Warren County, Bunn scored the last seven points of Tuesday’s Northern Carolina 2A opener to negate an Eagle rally and steal a 44-38 win. E.J. Miles capped off the run with a 3-pointer to give Warren County a 3837 lead with 2:23 left to play. But Bunn responded with two free

Lady Wildcats wallop Warren Co., 60-24 By KELLEN HOLTZMAN Dispatch Sports Writer

WARRENTON — Warren County opened its Northern Carolina 2A conference campaign with a 60-24 loss to Bunn Tuesday. The Eagles stayed close in the first half, but the Wildcats out-scored them 36-16 in the second half to secure the victory. “Mentally, our girls don’t have that killer instinct right now,” said Warren County coach Sheila Seward. Khadija Brown led the Eagles with nine points, eight of which came in the second half. Warren County held Bunn to nine points in the first quarter, but didn’t score a point of its own until the 2:25 mark of the opening frame. The Wildcats out-scored the Eagles 15-7 in the second quarter to take a 24-8 halftime lead. Bunn led 24-4 before two late baskets cut the lead down. The Wildcats’ shooting prowess was too much for the Eagles to overcome in the second half as Bunn went ahead 42-16 after three quarters. Whitney Bunn had four second half 3-pointers for the Wildcats and finished the game with 21 points. “I can talk until I’m blue in the face, but they have to make the decisions on the court,” Seward said of defending the outside shot. “I’ve got to have some players that know what to do on the court.” Warren County will look to bounce back on Friday with an away date at North Johnston. “We’re going to continue to do the little Daily Dispatch/ASHLEY STEVEN AYSCUE things,” Seward said. “Right now, we’re just going to keep working hard and not give up.” Warren County’s Domonique Solomon looks to battle for a rebound with Bunn’s Brianna Gatson during the Eagles’ 60-24 loss to the Wildcats Contact the writer at kholtzman@hendersondisTuesday night.

Hawkeyes top Jackets in Orange Bowl, 24-14 By STEVEN WINE AP Sports Writer

MIAMI — Stymied by the Iowa Hawkeyes’ swarming defense, Georgia Tech found itself out of options. No. 10 Iowa solved Tech’s explosive triple option and Ricky Stanzi threw two early touchdown passes for a 24-14 victory Tuesday night in the coldest Orange Bowl ever. Temperature at kickoff was 49 degrees, and Tech’s offense was slow to warm up. The ninth-ranked Yellow Jackets averaged 35 points during the regular season, but their only score in the first three quarters came on Jerrard Tar-

rant’s 40-yard interception return. “This was Hawkeye weather,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said. “We feel right at home right now.” The Hawkeyes (11-2) earned their first Bowl Championship Series bowl win, matched the school record for victories and could claim their highest final ranking since finishing No. 3 in 1960. Georgia Tech (11-3) totaled nine first downs and a season-low 155 yards. The Yellow Jackets were first in the nation in time of possession, second in rushing and 11th in scoring at 35 points per game. Please see ORANGE BOWL, page 3B

Two-minute drill NC State’s Toney Baker to enter NFL draft NFL Panthers sign four; Beason sets tackles record CHARLOTTE (AP) — The Carolina Panthers have signed four players, including former Wake Forest center Steve Justice and Appalachian State receiver Dexter Jackson. Defensive back Marcus Walker and defensive end Eric Moore were also signed on Tuesday. Jackson, Walker and Moore were on Carolina’s practice squad this season. Justice was Indianapolis’ sixth-round pick in 2008, but was cut by the Colts before this season. The Panthers have also announced that coaches awarded linebacker Jon Beason with 13 tackles in Sunday’s season finale against New Orleans. That gives him 169 on the season, breaking his own team record of 160 set in 2007.

Belichick: Houston field ‘one of the worst’ FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Bill Belichick says star receiver Wes Welker was hurt on a field in Houston that was in terrible condition. Welker, who led the NFL with 123 receptions, suffered a serious left knee injury in a 34-27 loss to the Texans on Sunday on what Belichick called “one of the worst fields I’ve seen.” He did not elaborate Tuesday on remarks he made a day earlier during his weekly appearance on WEEI radio. Belichick said the field was inconsistent — spongy in parts and hard in others — causing players to get a different feel with each step. Belichick said a lot of non-contact injuries like Welker’s occur on such surfaces.

MLB Glaus and Braves finalize $1.75M deal ATLANTA (AP) — Troy Glaus and the Atlanta Braves have finalized a $1.75 million, one-year contract, a deal that allows him to earn an additional $2.25 million in performance and roster bonuses. Glaus has played third base most of his career but the Braves probably will use the 33-year-old at first base in place of Adam LaRoche, who became a free agent. Glaus played in two games at first base for St. Louis last year after missing most of the season while recovering from shoulder surgery. He hit .172 in 14 games. He would earn $250,000 if he is on the active 25-man roster for 100 days. He also would get $350,000 each for 400, 450 and 500 plate appearances, $400,000 for 550 and $550,000 for 600.

College Football Tuberville interviewing with Texas Tech officials LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Former Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville is checking out the open head coaching job at Texas Tech. Texas Tech athletics department spokesman Chris Cook said Tuesday that Tuberville was expected to meet with university and athletic department administrators. The 55-year-old Tuberville stepped down at Auburn in December 2008, ending a 10-year tenure that included a perfect season and a string of teams that contended for Southeastern Conference championships. Athletics director Gerald Myers has said he could decide on a new coach by the end of the week. He also said interim coach Ruffin McNeill will be strongly considered for the permanent job. McNeill took over after Texas Tech suspended and then fired Mike Leach amid allegations of mistreating receiver Adam James after the player suffered a concussion. McNeill led the Red Raiders to a 41-31 win over Michigan State in the Alamo Bowl on Saturday. Tuberville was 85-40 at Auburn, including a 13-0 season in 2004 when the Tigers finished No. 2 and won the SEC title for the first time in 15 years. He led Auburn to five SEC Western Division titles and eight consecutive bowl appearances from 2000-07.

RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina State running back Toney Baker is giving up his sixth year of eligibility to enter the NFL draft. Baker said Tuesday in a statement released by

the school that “it’s time for me to pursue playing football at the next level.” He needed two surgeries to repair the serious knee injury he suffered in the 2007 opener, and returned in 2009 to lead

the Wolfpack with 773 yards rushing. He finishes his college career with 2,045 career yards rushing, and won the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Brian Piccolo Award as the

league’s “most courageous” player. The NCAA had granted him a sixth season because of his injury. Coach Tom O’Brien says he supports Baker’s decision.


Georgia upsets No. 20 Ga. Tech; BC wins by 57 Georgia 73, No. 20 Ga. Tech 66 ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Trey Thompkins scored 20 points, Ricky McPhee hit two key baskets near the end and Georgia pulled off its first big win for new coach Mark Fox, knocking off No. 20 Georgia Tech 7366 on Tuesday night. Georgia, a team that had lost at home to Wofford and was coming off a 28-point blowout at Missouri last weekend, defeated a team with one of the most touted freshman classes in the country. It was a loss sure to turn up the heat on Yellow Jackets coach Paul Hewitt, who looked up at the scoreboard in disbelief as the Bulldogs (8-5) pulled away. Georgia Tech (11-3) was trying to match its victory total from last season.

Instead, the Yellow Jackets failed to break a long drought at Stegeman Coliseum, where they haven’t won since Nov. 26, 1976.

Boston College 89, NJIT 32 BOSTON (AP) — Rakim Sanders scored 21 points, Joe Trapani had 18 and Boston College recovered from a dismal nonconference loss with a 89-32 win over New Jersey Institute of Technology on Tuesday. It was the fourth victory in five games for the Eagles (10-5), who completed the softer portion of their schedule and resume Atlantic Coast Conference play this week. They travel to Clemson on Saturday and play at No. 5 Duke next Wednesday. But it was hardly an easy start this season

for BC, which lost home games to Harvard, Rhode Island and, recently, Maine — all teams from weaker conferences. Reggie Jackson added 15 points for BC. Isaiah Wilkerson and Jheryl Wilson led NJIT (510) with 11 points apiece. The Highlanders shot just 23.5 percent. BC, which shot 60 percent in the opening 20 minutes, led 45-15 at halftime.

Virginia 72, Texas-Pan American 53 CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Mike Scott scored 22 points, Sylven Landesberg had 20 and Virginia sent Texas-Pan American to its 10th consecutive loss Tuesday night, 72-53. The Cavaliers (8-4)

led by as many as 21 in a sloppy second half and won their fourth in a row for the first time in two seasons. They will take the winning streak into their Atlantic Coast Conference opener at North Carolina State on Saturday afternoon. Texas-Pan American (1-15), whose only victory was by 61-50 against Chattanooga in the South Padre Island Invitational on Nov. 27, trailed 40-23 at halftime and never cut the deficit into single digits thereafter. The Broncs were led by Jared Maree with 14 points. Sammy Zeglinski added 13 points and six assists for the Cavaliers, who were 56.6 percent from the field and were 7-for12 from 3-point territory. Zeglinski made three 3s.

Source: Holliday, Cards agree to $120M deal By R.B. FALLSTROM AP Sports Writer

ST. LOUIS — Matt Holliday is staying with the St. Louis Cardinals, agreeing Tuesday to a $120 million, seven-year contract that is baseball’s richest deal of the offseason. The Cardinals announced Tuesday they had agreed with the powerhitting outfielder on a multiyear contract subject to a physical. The team said a formal announcement was likely by Thursday. Holliday, who had been the biggest prize in free agency, confirmed he was returning in an interview on ESPN Radio. “I’m going back to the Cardinals,” Holliday said. “I’m excited about it.” His agreement includes $119 million guaranteed over seven seasons plus a $17 million vesting option for 2017 with a $1 million buyout, a person familiar

with the deal told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team didn’t reveal the length of the contract or financial details. St. Louis acquired Holliday from Oakland in July and he helped lead the Cardinals to their first NL Central title since 2006. They sent several top prospects to the Athletics and justified that expense by retaining a player who hit .353 with 13 homers and 55 RBIs in 63 games for St. Louis. A three-time All-Star, Holliday was a perfect fit batting cleanup behind star slugger Albert Pujols, though he was the goat in a first-round playoff sweep by the Los Angeles Dodgers after dropping a sinking liner to left field that would have been the final out of Game 2. Holliday, who turns 30 on Jan. 15, batted .313

overall with 24 homers and 109 RBIs, his fifth .300 season and third 100-RBI year. “Obviously, with Albert Pujols on the team you have a great opportunity to have a great team,” Holliday told ESPN. “Albert is the best player in the history of baseball in my mind. Hopefully between the two of us we can help do our part to win a World Series.” Cardinals pitcher Kyle Lohse said he got the news in text messages between the teammates’ wives. “That’s pretty good, pretty exciting,” Lohse told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. “I’ve been around long enough not to pay too much attention until something gets done, but I know he liked it here and I’m sure he’s really happy things worked out.” Holliday’s agreement is much bigger than the other two big free-agent deals of

the offseason: pitcher John Lackey’s $82.5 million, five-year contract with Boston and outfielder Jason Bay’s $66 million, four-year contract with the New York Mets, which was finalized earlier Tuesday. “When you’re a little kid growing up hoping to be a professional baseball player and hoping to play in the major leagues, I don’t think you ever think about the money,” Holliday said. “Now that you look at it, it’s a little overwhelming.” Holliday’s contract contains a full no-trade clause and deferred money that lowers its annual presentday value to about $16 million. It also likely sets a floor for negotiations between the Cardinals and Pujols, who is entering the final guaranteed season of a $100 million, seven-year contract. St. Louis holds a $16 million option for 2011 on the three-time NL MVP.

ORANGE BOWL, from page 1B But they sputtered against an Iowa defense that held four bowl-bound teams to 10 points or less during the regular season. End Adrian Clayborn led Iowa’s defensive charge. He had two sacks and nine tackles, including two for a loss, and was chosen the game’s most valuable player. The Hawkeyes had never faced the triple option in Ferentz’s 11 seasons as coach, but his staff had a month to prepare for Tech, and it showed. The Yellow Jackets had only 14 three-and-outs during the regular season, fewest in the nation, but they failed to pick up a first down on their first four possessions. “It’s just a good thing we had a month to prepare because it was difficult,” Clayborn said. Georgia Tech finally made a first down midway through the second quarter. The Yellow Jackets’ first pass completion came 43 minutes into the game with Iowa leading 17-7. Quarterback Josh Nesbitt went only 2 for 9 for 12 yards for Tech, which had a season-high seven punts. By comparison, Stanzi went 17 for 29 for 231 yards in his return from a sprained ankle that

Iowa true freshman Brandon Wegher rushed for 113 yards and one score in 16 carries. “It was great having Rick back. It was tough when he got injured,” Ferentz said. “He did a great job leading us tonight — and what can I say about that defense?” Tech’s first scoring drive covered 71 yards, with Anthony Allen’s 1-yard touchdown run making it 17-14 with 12:30 left. Iowa drove 63 yards for the clincher. Wegher ran for 23 yards on one carry, followed by a 32-yard touchdown run with 1:56 to go.

The Hawkeyes had a 185-18 advantage in yards in the first quarter. Stanzi, playing his first game in two months, started 8 for 8 for 138 yards and two scores for a

14-0 lead. Then came Tarrant’s interception to keep Tech in the game. Iowa lost a fumble at midfield on the game’s opening possession, but Tech was quickly forced to punt for the first time in three games. Stanzi hit Tony Moeaki for a 54-yard gain, then threw to Marvin McNutt for a 4-yard score. Tech again went three and out, and Iowa moved 83 yards to score in four plays. Stanzi threw a 21yard touchdown pass to Colin Sandeman. The Yellow Jackets finally got their offense going to start the second half and drove 43 yards before missing a 41-yard field goal.

Source: Shanahan agrees to coach Redskins By JOSEPH WHITE AP Sports Writer

WASHINGTON — Mike Shanahan agreed Tuesday to become the coach of the Washington Redskins, the latest step in a major overhaul of a troubled franchise. Shanahan’s decision to join the team was confirmed to The Associated Press by an official within the NFL. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the team was not commenting on its coaching search. The Redskins announced they would hold a news conference Wednesday, although they did not say why. The deal with Shanahan is for five years, the Denver Post reported on its Web site. The hire comes less than 48 hours after the Redskins fired Jim Zorn — and less than three weeks after front-office chief Vinny Cerrato resigned and quickly was replaced by general manager Bruce Allen. All of which means that, within a month, the Redskins have gone from an organization that revolved primarily around owner Dan Snyder and yes-man Cerrato to one that includes two powerful decision-makers who are sure to yield

Allen — son of Hall of Famer and former Redskins coach George Allen — became the first person to hold the title of GM in Snyder’s decade-plus of ownership, while Shanahan is known to demand a heavy say-so in personnel decisions. Shanahan will have the final authority on football decisions, according to All in all, it was quite a contrast to Washington’s previous transition, when Joe Gibbs abruptly left as coach and team president after the 2007 season. The Redskins went through

a whole slew of coaching candidates during a monthplus search, and wound up turning to Zorn after others showed no interest, dropped out or were deemed unsatisfactory. Zorn initially was brought aboard as a firsttime offensive coordinator, then was promoted to head coach two weeks later. No such suspense or drama this time. “You always wonder what’s going to be happen. You don’t want to be on pins and needles,” defensive end Andre Carter said. “When we had the team meeting with Bruce Allen, he told us something would happen hastily. He wasn’t joking when he said that.” The Redskins are 82-99 since Snyder bought the team, missing the playoffs in eight of 11 seasons, and the toll of below-.500 seasons and accompanying fan unrest left him little choice but to hire established names and put them in charge. Shanahan will be Washington’s seventh coach since Snyder bought the team in 1999 — a stretch that has included only two playoff victories for a team that proudly displays three shiny Super Bowl championship trophies in the lobby of its practice facility. Shanahan won two

Super Bowls in 14 seasons with the Denver Broncos, but was fired a year ago after they missed the playoffs for the third straight season. Before word of Shanahan’s agreement with Washington emerged, Clinton Portis — who played for the coach for two seasons in Denver — described him as “the perfect guy for the job” and a “straight shooter.” “If you’re doing the stuff you’re supposed to be doing, you’re fine with him,” Portis said during his weekly radio appearance on ESPN980. “If you’re not, no matter how much you’re getting paid, he’s going to get you up out of there.” Shanahan made the playoffs in half of his seasons in Denver, and had only two losing campaigns — 6-10 in 1999 and 7-9 in 2007. His greatest successes came early, earning consecutive NFL titles after the 1997 and 1998 seasons with a team led by quarterback John Elway and running back Terrell Davis. Shanahan’s career regular-season record is 146-98, including 138-86 with the Broncos from 1995-2008, and 8-12 with the Los Angeles Raiders in 1988-89. Shanahan’s playoff record is 8-5.

that included vacating wins “excessive” and claimed the NCAA did not appropriately weigh its cooperation during the investigation. The school agreed to four years of probation and scholarship reductions. The university still must certify which games ineligible players competed to determine the number

of wins and individual records that will be nullified. “This will take some time,” Spetman said. “We didn’t believe it was a process we should go through.” The NCAA also rejected an appeal by former Florida State learning specialist Brenda Monk, who has asked that she be absolved of any wrongdoing in the case.

RALLY, from page 1B snapped their cold spell. “Bunn is normally one of the better teams in this conference. We can take a lot from this game,” Miles said. The Wildcats only led by eight at halftime, but opened up the second half on an 11-0 run, led by two Andre Davis 3s. Adam Aycock started the Eagles run with a layup, before Miles and Darrin Wilson notched 3-pointers to make it 37-29 at the end of the third. Darrin Stanton came up with two huge shots for Warren County in the final quarter, knocking down back-to-back jump shots from each corner to bring the Eagles within two. “I pulled him down from JV for conference play,” said Miles. “He hit two key baskets down low for me. He’s going to be a good ballplayer.” Miles led the Eagles with eight points, followed by Wilson with seven and Javion Hen-

derson with five. “I’m very proud of my team for showing the drive in the second half. I felt we should have won the game,” said Miles. Bunn opened the game on fire from downtown, netting five 3-pointers in the first half. The Wildcats’ Michael Collins knocked down three outside shots in the first quarter alone to give his side a 15-7 advantage after one period. Bunn went up 26-13 in the second quarter before the Eagles scored five straight to make it 26-18 at halftime. Warren County hits the road to take on North Johnston Friday for its second conference match. “I want to keep this same intensity,” Miles said. “I saw something in this second half I hadn’t seen all season.

San Francisco pitcher Randy Johnson delivers a pitch against Washington during a June 4, 2009 game in Washington.

JOHNSON, from page 1B pitching effectively into his mid-40s. He said before last season ended that he looked forward to going home to Arizona and spending time with his family before making a decision about his future. “It’s taken this long into January because I definitely wanted to just kind of relax from the season being over and make sure I had a clear head when I made this decision, and that I would be making it wholeheartedly and would be sticking to it,” he said. Johnson went 8-6 with a 4.88 ERA in 17 starts and five relief appearances for San Francisco last season despite missing more than two months with a strained left shoulder that also had a tear in the rotator cuff. He returned in late September as a reliever, a role he couldn’t see himself embracing in order to keep pitching. His final strikeout came on the season’s final day at San Diego, against Adrian Gonzalez to end the seventh inning. Johnson said he developed a better appreciation for relief pitchers last year. “My 40s have really been learning years,” he said. “The last five years of my career, there’s been a lot there to sift through, a lot of ups and downs, some great moments in my career and some moments that got my head scratching.” Johnson came out of a game July 5 against Houston with an injury, the first serious shoulder problem of his career. He felt something in his arm on a swing during that start but initially tried to pitch through it. He left the game after committing a throwing error in the fourth inning. He was on the disabled list from July 6 to Sept. 16, marking the 10th DL stint of Johnson’s career. He had four knee operations and three back surgeries, but worked his way back each time. “This isn’t a tall man’s sport — basketball is,” Johnson said.

But by the time he was done, he had a Hall of Fame resume. Johnson signed with his hometown Giants before last season to try to help them reach the playoffs. They stayed in the NL wild-card chase well into September but missed the postseason for a sixth straight year. Pitching in San Francisco, Johnson was only about 40 miles west of where he grew up in Livermore. He largely stayed to himself in his final season, insisting the 300-win milestone wasn’t his top priority. Then on June 4 at Washington, he became the 24th pitcher in big league history to accomplish the feat. Johnson pitched his first no-hitter in 1990, won 19 games with 308 strikeouts in 1993 and led the Mariners to their first playoff berth with an 18-2 record in 1995. He finished his 10-year stint in Seattle with a 130-74 record before being traded to Houston in 1998. He signed as a free agent with the Diamondbacks before the following season, beginning one of the most dominating runs a pitcher has ever had. Johnson won the Cy Young in each of his first four seasons with Arizona, capturing the coveted pitcher’s triple crown in 2002 with a 24-5 record, 2.32 ERA and 334 strikeouts. His most memorable moments were in 2001, when he came out of the bullpen to beat the Yankees in Game 7 of the World Series to give the Diamondbacks the title. He went 3-0 in the Series, sharing the MVP award with Curt Schilling. At age 40, Johnson pitched a perfect game against Atlanta. He didn’t have as much success after leaving Arizona for the first time following the 2004 season. He won 34 games in two seasons with the Yankees, although the tenure was marred by a run-in with a camera man and postseason struggles.

Bears retain Lovie Smith, fire Turner By ANDREW SELIGMAN AP Sports Writer

Chicago’s Derrick Rose and Charlotte’s Gerald Wallace reach for a loose ball in the first half of Tuesday’s game.

Bobcats edge Bulls for third straight win By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTE — Gerald Wallace scored 32 points, Stephen Jackson and Flip Murray added 25 each and the Charlotte Bobcats held off a late rally to beat the Chicago Bulls 113-108 on Tuesday night for their third straight victory. Derrick Rose and John Salmons missed gametying 3-point attempts in the closing seconds for the Bulls, who gave up seventh place in the Eastern Conference to the Bobcats despite wiping out a 13-point second-quarter deficit. Rose scored 10 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter and Salmons added 19 for the Bulls in the fastpaced game that saw both teams shoot 51 percent. The Bobcats improved to 12-4 at home after consecutive road wins over Miami and Cleveland. But they had trouble putting away the Bulls, who dropped their second straight following a fourgame winning streak. Rose, who hit 11 of 19 shots, keyed Chicago’s late surge with quick drives to the hoop. His shot in the paint with 2:08 left tied it at 105. Murray’s two free throws put Charlotte ahead before a series of missed shots and turnovers. It included Rose being blocked by Wallace with 27.8 seconds left. Officials ruled the ball went off Rose, but reversed the call after checking the replay. Kirk Hinrich then badly missed a mid-range jumper, and Charlotte’s Raymond Felton hit two free throws with 23.2 seconds left. After John Salmons’ three-point play cut the lead to 109-108, Jackson hit two free throws with 17.5 second left. The Bulls then got two good looks. After Rose missed a 3 from the left wing, the ball was batted out to Salmons, who missed a straightaway 3. Wallace’s two free throws with 0.1 seconds remaining left Chicago 0-7 in the second game of back-to-back contests. Wallace added nine rebounds and hit 10 of 11 free throws, while Jackson and Murray had big performances for the second straight game for the Bobcats, who hope to capitalize on the start of a friendly schedule that has them playing seven of eight at home. Chicago’s recent winning streak had taken some pressure off embattled coach Vinny Del Negro in his return to North Carolina. He starred at N.C. State and his wife is from Charlotte. Del Negro spent most of the night unhappy.

Referee Pat Fraher hit him with a technical foul early in the third quarter when he came on the court and flailed his arms complaining about what he felt were fouls on Charlotte on consecutive blocks. Jackson missed the free throw, ending his streak of 35 straight makes, and the Bulls cut the lead to 84-80 before Raymond Felton banked in a halfcourt heave at the third-quarter buzzer. The Bulls had to work hard to come back after a poor second quarter aided by a bizarre play. Leading 38-35, Murray drove the lane and was grabbed intentionally. He threw up a prayer after the whistle and it was easily rejected. However, well away from play, Tyrus Thomas hung on the rim. That meant an automatic goaltending violation and Thomas was called for a technical foul. It turned into a fourpoint play, the start of an 11-3 run. Luol Deng had 18 points and nine rebounds for the Bulls, who struggled to defend for a second straight night.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. — The Chicago Bears are bringing head coach Lovie Smith back for a seventh season. But he’s done calling the defensive plays. The team also fired offensive coordinator Ron Turner and five other coaches on that side of the ball Tuesday after going 7-9 with Jay Cutler at quarterback and missing the playoffs for the third straight year following a Super Bowl run. “This has been a frustrating season to say the least. We’ve had inconsistent play on both sides of the ball,” team president and CEO Ted Phillips said. “Personally, it’s been the most frustrating year since I’ve been here.” He added: “The last three years, it’s been clear nobody did a good enough job in the organization. Nobody did.” The Bears had problems on offense and defense and fell far short of expectations after the blockbuster trade with Denver to get Cutler.

Chicago head coach Lovie Smith is seen during the first quarter of Sunday’s game against Detroit. But instead of bringing in a big-name coach like Bill Cowher, the Bears stuck with Smith, who has two years and $11 million left on his contract. The team will bring in a defensive coordinator, with Smith relinquishing his play-calling duties. And his staff will look much different next season. Turner’s second stint as Chicago’s offensive coordinator lasted five years, a run that included two playoff appearances but ended with the Bears ranked 23rd in yards per game and 29th in rushing. A frosty relationship with

Cutler probably didn’t help, either. Also fired were coaches Pep Hamilton (quarterbacks), Rob Boras (tight ends), Harry Hiestand (line), and assistants Luke Butkus and Charles London. Smith said he will look outside for a defensive coordinator and that line coach Rod Marinelli is not a candidate for that job. For all the moves, though, Smith said he’s looking for coaches with similar philosophies. And that “no matter who comes in here, we’re going to have to run the football.”

“Changing schemes and all that, I think you have to stay with what you believe in,” Smith said. “Obviously, you want a winning football team. ... We’ve been in a position where we’ve won with the things that we believe in, so why can’t we do that?” The Bears dropped eight of 10 following a 3-1 start, and as the losses mounted, so did speculation about Smith’s job status. General manager Jerry Angelo at one point refused to say that Smith would be back while insisting there was no need for a roster overhaul. After finishing the season with wins over NFC North champion Minnesota and Detroit, Smith has a a 52-44 record since replacing Dick Jauron before the 2004 season. Chicago went from 11 losses to 11 wins in their first two years under Smith, who was St. Louis’ defensive coordinator, before going 13-3 in 2006 and making a run to the Super Bowl. Since then, the Bears are 23-25 and have finished below .500 twice.

Houston LB Cushing is top defensive rookie By BARRY WILNER AP Football Writer

NEW YORK — From the first practice in training camp until the last game, Brian Cushing was a tackling machine for the Houston Texans. That’s exactly what the team sought when it chose the linebacker from Southern Cal 15th overall in the draft last April. What the Texans also got is The Associated Press 2009 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. Cushing was a runaway winner in balloting by a nationwide panel of 50 sports writers and broadcasters who cover the league. Cushing received 39 votes Tuesday, easily beating Buffalo safety Jairus Byrd, who had

six, and became the second Texans linebacker in four seasons to win the award. DeMeco Ryans took it in 2006. “I’m just a much smarter football player,” Cushing said. “I’m much more advanced than I was this time last year and it was just a good way to start out a career. I’m happy about how everything turned out this year. Of course the playoffs would have been nice, but now we know what we have to do for next season.” This season, Cushing had 133 tackles, 86 of them primary, according to the Texans, who went 9-7, their first winning record. Cushing’s best game might have been his nine solo tackles, one sack and an interception in a victory over Miami

on Dec. 27. Or maybe it was his nine tackles, interception and two forced fumbles in a win over Cincinnati on Oct. 18. Overall, he had five sacks, four interceptions and the two forced fumbles, numbers that normally belong to a seasoned veteran. Which is exactly how the 22-year-old Cushing played. “He brought another element to our football team: his love for the game, his passion, his play, playing beat up, all these things,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “He played like a 10-year vet from the day he stepped on the field. Our players respect what he does with the game and how he goes about his business. We’re very fortunate to have him and we’re going to have

Consistent speed all day, every day.

him here for a long, long time. What a year. He was exceptional.” Nobody can understand or appreciate what Cushing accomplished better than Ryans, who made a similar impact in ’06. “Brian is a special player,” Ryans said. “I saw when he first stepped on the field that he could be a special player for us. Just to watch him grow week in and week out, I’m just so proud of him. He’s like my little brother out there. I’m always out there talking to him about how we can be great as a unit. I say it to him every week, ’Let’s go out and be great and be the best linebackers in the league’ and that’s our motto and that’s our goal.” They’re closing in on it.

Good Taste



hildren are naturally curious when it comes to the ways of the kitchen, and parents are equally curious about how to include them in cooking and baking activities. “The best way to promote lifelong healthy eating is to get kids involved in cooking at an early age,” said Mitzi Dulan, registered dietitian and author. “Promoting the kitchen as a fun gathering place for the whole family will help build a positive attitude towards enjoying food.” With a little adult assistance, kids can easily learn their way around the kitchen and help create fun meals and snacks. “Introduce kids to the kitchen by having them help prepare their own snacks,” Dulan said. “A favorite snack for my children is a honey and peanut butter sandwich. Even very young kids can use a spoon to spread honey and peanut butter on whole wheat bread or a tortilla.” Here are three simple steps to heighten your child’s desire to learn and be involved in the kitchen: Tour the kitchen. Sure they eat there, but take time to familiarize them with measuring cups, cutting boards, hot pads and the general layout of the kitchen. Point out where kitchen staples such as honey, spices and other dry ingredients are stored and use this time as an invitation to talk about flavors and favorite tastes. Make meal planning a family event. Browse through cookbooks, old family recipes or visit for kid-friendly and tasty recipes. Invite kids to pick at least one recipe to make each week to get them involved and interested in the family’s eating habits. Assist your little chef. Safety is a top priority for kids in the kitchen — adults should be active participants and lead by example. Always demonstrate safe kitchen practices — from knife skills and cleanliness to age-appropriate cooking activities. The National Honey Board provides a collection of kid-friendly recipes and fun facts in the “From Honey Bees to Brain Freeze Kid’s Guide to Cooking with Honey” brochure, including colorful illustrations and photography. To receive a free copy of the brochure, download recipes, or find out more about the benefits of using honey, visit

Mitzi Dulan offers seven tips for raising food-smart kids 1. Introduce a variety of foods. The key to expanding kids’ food preferences is to try new flavors early and often. Be persistent — it can take 5 to 20 times of trying a new food before your child actually enjoys it. 2. Avoid being a short-order cook. It’s fine to frequently include some of their favorite foods, but you don’t want to end up making four different meals each night for everyone in the family. 3. Switch to whole grains. Bread, pasta, pancakes, tortillas, pitas, cereal, crackers and brown rice. It might not always be possible to eat whole grains when eating out, but it should be a no-brainer when you are making meals at home. 4. Put the brakes on fast food. Fast food can seem like a great option when you are pressed for time, but try to limit the number of times you eat fast food. Instead, make a double batch of favorite foods and freeze half for later. 5. Make activity a family affair. Go for a family bike ride or walk. Find local tennis courts, trails or a track and get moving! 6. Ask for their help. Get children involved with grocery shopping. Make it fun by exploring colors and shapes in the produce section. Let kids select a new fruit or vegetable to try at home. 7. Look for pure foods. Buy foods with short ingredient lists or single ingredient foods like honey and kiwi.

Honey Berry Waffle Sandwich

Makes 4 servings 1 1/2 cups fresh berries*, divided 1 tablespoon butter 1/3 cup honey 8 frozen waffles, toasted To prepare honey syrup, purée 1/2 cup berries in a blender or food processor; set aside. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add honey and bring to a boil; simmer 2 to 3 minutes, then add berry purée. Continue to simmer 2 to 3 minutes more until syrup thickens slightly. Set aside and keep warm. For each serving, place 2 waffles on plate. Top one waffle with 1/4 cup fresh berries. Drizzle with 1/4 of syrup, and top sandwich with remaining waffle. *Raspberries, strawberries and blueberries work well.

Honey Turkey Rollers

Makes 6 servings 8 ounces cream cheese, softened 1/3 cup honey 1/4 cup mustard 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, optional 6 8-inch whole wheat tortillas 1 1/2 cups Colby Jack cheese, shredded 12 thin slices of turkey In medium bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add honey, mustard and onion powder; mix well. Spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of honey cream cheese mixture out to the edge of each tortilla. Sprinkle each tortilla with 1/4 cup cheese, leaving about 1 inch around the edge. Place 2 slices of turkey on each tortilla. Roll up each tortilla tightly and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill at least 30 minutes, then slice each tortilla log into 8 1-inch rounds and serve.

Peanut Butter Honey Play Dough

Makes about 1 pound 1 cup peanut butter 3 cups powdered sugar 1/3 cup honey 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract Food coloring, optional Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; mix thoroughly until “dough” begins to come together. Do not over mix. If desired, add a few drops of food coloring to dough and mix; add additional food coloring if needed to reach preferred color. Store dough or shapes in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.

(Answers tomorrow) PHONY SINGLE EMBARK Jumbles: YOUTH Answer: What he did when he became “Man of the Hour” — SPOKE FOR A MINUTE


Today’s answer

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let restrictions worry you. If you are focused on what needs to be accomplished, you will get what you need to do out of the way and can take care of issues that are causing you difficulties. A work-related matter may stir up emotions. 3 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll have plenty to say that may help you at a personal level but, when it comes to talking business, don’t give away too much information. Gather all the facts you can from someone with more experience and clout than you. 3 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t let your spending habits be your downfall. Legal matters, contracts or investments must be dealt with conservatively. You can make some headway if you are dealing with institutions but only with regard to older or younger family members. 5 stars CANCER (June 21-July 22): You will face a difference of opinion with someone with whom you have a monetary attachment. Before you get into trouble, assess the situation. Limitations and added burdens may be dropped in your lap. 2 stars LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Taking on an interesting proposal or project will help you stabilize your own financial situation. You can come up with solutions that will serve others well and help you in the interim. An educated move will allow you to invest wisely. 4 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may face additional expenses if you are too generous, especially with children and old folks. Before you offer something you cannot afford, consider what services you can use to benefit others.



Romance is in the stars. 3 stars LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Stay cool, calm and collected and concentrate on the things and people you enjoy. A creative endeavor will help you chill out and discover what it is you truly want to do with the rest of your life. It’s never too late to change. 3 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t let anyone restrict you or your plans. An issue at home may confuse you if you don’t do your own fact-finding. Now is not the time to rely on anyone but yourself in an emotional situation. Anger will not pay off. 3 stars SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You need a little adventure in your life. Take time out to plan a trip or visit someone with whom you can share a little excitement. Idle time will be your enemy and can lead to a costly professional mistake. 4 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t take on a battle that’s not yours. You will only damage your reputation, leaving you in a vulnerable position. Contemplate a move that allows you to try something different and removes you from uncertain circumstances. 2 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t hesitate to take on a task that includes institutions, corporations or government agencies. You can get the help you need and pave the way for a better future. Past experience will help you make the right decisions. 5 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t get angry at the circumstances you face. Instead, use it to reinvent some of your talents and skills. You have more to offer than you think and can move forward in the right direction. 3 stars
