Snowfall totals did not reach the 12-inch mark, only two water main breaks were reported, and, surprisingly, only about 5 vehicle accidents occurred as the storm passed through the area. “People are doing what we asked them to do — staying home,” Brian Short, Vance County Emergency Operations Director, said Saturday night. “No bad accidents, no fatalities related to the storm.” While the early snowfall forecast called for a foot of the white stuff, far less fell throughout Vance County, according to figures provied by the Vance County Emergency Operations Center. Snowfall totals varied, with the highest accumulation in the northern part of the county, an EOC report said. Both Henderson and Kittrell received about 4 inches. The

Townsville area counted 6 to 8 inches, while the Cokesbury and Epsom communities each received about 6 inches. The water main breaks were repaired by Saturday night, Short said. A break in an 8-inch main affected residents in the Oxford Road area and another, smaller break occurred on Crozier Street. A spokesman at the 911 center counted only about 5 traffic accidents in the city and county

since the beginning of the storm. However, the EOC cautioned that snow and ice on road surfaces would glaze over Saturday night and be dangerous today. Into early this morning, wind gusts could reach 15 and 20 mph.

N.C. state of emergency declared RALEIGH (AP) — The Carolinas are preparing for what could be a treacherous night if water on roads and bridges turns icy. North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue declared a state of emergency as some mountain areas got more than a foot of snow throughout the day Saturday. Perdue says more than a dozen emergency shelters have opened across the state, and power companies reported more than 44,000 outages statewide. Most of North Carolina is under a winter storm warning until midnight. Officials across the Carolinas urged people to stay home unless travel was absolutely necessary as crews applied brine and salt mixtures to roads in both states.

Arms sales to Taiwan scuttle Chinese military exchanges By CARA ANNA Associated Press Writer

BEIJING (AP) — China suspended military exchange visits with the United States on Saturday in protest over $6.4 billion in planned U.S. arms sales to Taiwan and warned the U.S. ambassador that the sales would harm already strained ties.

Our Opinion

Snow can’t dampen good news Despite eight inches of snow, freezing rain and the usual troubles that accompany a winter storm, there was plenty of good news this past week (although most children would argue the snow was good news).

Working on the swing shift (EDITOR’S NOTE: This column was originally published May 12, 2002.) You don’t think of swingers as being the type of people who hold conventions. By “swingers,” I mean couples who swing with other couples. By “swing” I mean, “You know exactly what I mean.” But my point is that you (and by “you” I mean “I”) don’t think of swingers as being big convention-goers. You think of them as hanging out at private parties, or exclusive swinger nightclubs, or secluded motels. You don’t picture swingers walking around large hotels wearing name badges and attending seminars, like executives in the forklift industry. But it turns out that swingers do hold conventions. I know this because I went to one recently, at the Radisson Deauville hotel in Miami Beach. I was accompanied by my wife and a guy named Wally, who’s in the insurance business. This was not as kinky as it sounds. Wally had been the highest bidder in a charity auction for a lunch with me. He assumed we would be going to a normal restaurant where everybody would be wearing clothes. But when I suggested to him that we could use the lunch as an opportunity to investigate — for journalism purposes

— the swingers convention, he readily agreed, despite the very real risk that we might see people, including women, wearing skimpy or nonexistent outfits. That is the kind of sacrifice some guys are willing to make for charity. I also invited my wife, so I would not Dave be walkBarry ing into a swingers Tribune Media convention Services accompanied only by an insurance executive named Wally. When I invited her, I made a hilarious joke about how we might find a couple we’d want to swap with. NOTE TO HUSBANDS: Never attempt to make this type of joke with your wife. This type of joke should be attempted only by trained humor professionals. NOTE TO TRAINED HUMOR PROFESSIONALS: Even then, it turns out to be a bad idea. When Wally, my wife and I got to the swingers’ hotel, we picked up a copy of the illustrated convention guide, which I personally would have killed

for when I was in 9th grade. It listed the various seminars, including “Introduction to Tantra,” “The Myth of Monogamy,” “Meeting New Friends on the Internet,” “The Benefits and Mechanics of Long-Term Polyamory,” and “Basic Forklift Maintenance.” I am, of course, kidding about that last one, but I am not kidding when I say that this entire hotel had been taken over by swingers, hundreds of them. You could tell they were swingers because they were all wearing convention wristbands. In some cases, the wristband was the largest garment they were wearing. These were people of all ages and bodily types: Some had obviously spent a lot of time at the fitness club; whereas others appeared to have recently eaten a fitness club. We had lunch at a table looking out on the pool area. Our conversation consisted almost entirely of us taking turns saying, “Ohmigod look at THAT.” We tried to be cool about it, but it is not easy to look cool when you’re sticking a spoonful of soup in your ear because your head has just whirled sideways so your eyeballs could keep track of a passing thong. The thong appears to be a major weapon in the swinger’s fashion arsenal. This is not necessarily a good thing. Your taut-

bodied individual may be able to pull it off (Har!), but when you see a portly middle-aged man who has more body hair than a musk ox AND (I swear) a tattoo of Elvis on his right butt cheek stroll past wearing essentially a No. 8 rubber band, you begin to think that maybe it’s time Congress enacted strict Federal Thong Control. Attire aside, most of the swingers seemed to be regular people. In fact, according to a story about the convention in The Miami Herald, the two most-common professions for swingers are police officer and teacher. This stunned me, especially the teachers. I mean, remember when you were a kid, and you were shocked whenever you saw a teacher at, say, the supermarket, because you didn’t think of teachers as having any existence outside of school, or even necessarily as being food-eating life forms? Well, imagine if you encountered your trigonometry teacher wearing a garment that left absolutely nothing to the imagination regarding the cosine OR the hypotenuse. I think that, as parents, we should be concerned about the fact that this type of individual is being employed in our schools. Maybe we should notify the police. No, wait.

So far the campaign has raised $158,745.68, or 70.5 percent of its goal of $215,000.That places the campaign slightly ahead of last year, according to Nancy Gray, executive director of local United Way. - Earlier this month, the Henderson Police Department swore in two new police officers. Brandon Logue and Graham Woodlief were administered the oath of office by Executive Assistant Diana Pendergrass. They are both recent graduates of Vance-Granville Community College’s Basic Law Enforcement Training Program. - Vance-Granville Community College recently disposed of some of its used computer equipment in a way that benefits disabled individuals and the environment, by giving the equipment to Rocky Mount-based Tri-County Industries. TCI provides rehabilitation services and employment for people who are disabled or disadvantaged through work assessment, job training and job placement. - Ernest Johnson, a nationally known civil rights advocate and motivational speaker to young people, came to Pinkston Street Elementary School recently to bring a special message to students. Johnson led two 90-minute sessions with fifth-grade students using hip hop music to emphasize that students should be responsible, good citizens in school and in their personal lives.

Even if it’s unsafe, I can’t imagine leaving. Even if the government helps, it will come too late. This is how it is in Haiti.” — Noel Marie Jose, whose family was reinforcing crumbling walls with tin and wood in Canape Vert. “The Leadership Council considers this mere futile and baseless rumors. The Leadership Council once again emphasizes continuation of Islamic jihad against all invaders as a mean to frustrate these conspiracies.” — The Taliban denying reports that their representatives met with a U.N. official to discuss prospects for peace in Afghanistan.

Breeding contempt for the poor If he’d said it of Jews, he would still be apologizing. If he’d said it of blacks, he’d be on BET, begging absolution. If he’d said it of women, the National Organization for Women would have his carcass turning slowly on a spit over an open flame. But he said it of the poor, so he got away with it. “He” is South Carolina Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, running for governor on the GOP ticket. Speaking of those who receive public assistance, he recently told an audience, “My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed. You’re facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don’t think too much further than that. And so what you’ve got to do is you’ve got to curtail that type of behavior. They don’t know any better.” You read that right. The would-be governor of one of the poorest states there is likens the poor to stray animals. And though it drew some newspaper notice, a riposte from “The Daily Show” and rebukes from Bauer’s opponents, it never quite rose to the level of national controversy, as it would’ve had Bauer compared, say, women or Jews to the dogs one feeds at one’s back door. The relative silence stands as eloquent testimony to the powerlessness and invisibility of the American poor. One is reminded how ear-

nestly shocked news media were at the poverty they saw five years ago when New Orleans drowned. “Why didn’t they get out?” observers kept asking — as if everyone has a car in the driveway and a wallet full of plastic. The poor fare little better on television. Leonard The EvanPitts ses of “Good Distributed by Times” and Cagle Cartoons the Conners from “Roseanne” aside, television has been heavily weighted toward fresh-scrubbed middleand upper-class families for 60 years. Politicians? They’ll elbow one another aside to pledge allegiance to the middle class; they are conspicuously less eager to align with those still trying to reach that level. Who, then, speaks for the poor? Who raises a voice when they are scapegoated and marginalized? Who cries out when they are abused by police and failed by schools? Who takes a stand when they are exploited by employers and turned away by hospitals? As near as I can tell, no one does. Unfortunately, poor people have never learned to think of and conduct themselves as a voting bloc; historically, they have proved too readily divisible, usually by race. As Martin Luther King once observed: “If it may be said of

the slavery era that the white man took the world and gave the Negro Jesus, then it may be said of the Reconstruction era that the Southern aristocracy took the world and gave the “poor” white man Jim Crow. And when his wrinkled stomach cried out for the food that his empty pockets could not provide, he ate Jim Crow, a psychological bird that told him that no matter how bad off he was, at least he was a white man, better than the black man.” It takes some helluva psychology to get two men stuck in the same leaking boat to fight one another. You’d think their priority would be to come together, if only long enough to bail water. But the moneyed interests in this country have somehow been able to con the poor into doing just that, fighting tooth and nail when they ought to be standing shoulder to shoulder. One hopes Andre Bauer’s words will provide a wakeup call — in South Carolina and elsewhere — for people who have been down too long and fooled too often, that it will encourage them to organize their votes, raise their voices, push their issues into the public discourse. In America, one is invisible and powerless only so long as one chooses to be. And the Bauers of this world need to know: sometimes stray animals bite.

While this fishing report probably won’t do you much good this weekend — what, with the 8-12 inches of snow across much of North Carolina — we can take it as a sign that the fishing will soon be picking up. As the earth tilts back on its axis providing more hours of sun to our part of the planet, we will continue to warm.

In about four hours, Randy Owen and I caught at least 10 nice stripers (although none met the 26-inch minimum size limit) and probably 40 white perch.

Georgetown’s Julian Vaughn dunks over Duke’s Kyle Singler during the second half Saturday.

WASHINGTON — Put the commander in chief on the front row, and Georgetown beats Duke with its best shooting game in 30 years. With President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden munching popcorn in some of the best seats in the house, the No. 7 Hoyas put on a couldn't-miss performance against No. 8 Duke, shooting 71.7 percent in Saturday's 89-77 win. "The crowd was pumped up, Obama was there, so it was exciting," Georgetown guard Chris Wright said. "I think we all came out with a little bit more energy than usual. We were all over the place, defensively and offensively." It couldn't have been a much bigger day for Georgetown: the president attending his first Hoyas game, the first

sellout of the season in the 20,000-seat Verizon Center, a crowd mostly sporting "We Are Georgetown" T-shirts in a school-sponsored "gray out," the 200th win for coach John Thompson III, the launch of an initiative for Darfur schools, and, of course, the much-detested empire from the Atlantic Coast Conference in the building. "It was good, everything about it — from who was there, to how we played against a terrific team, against a well-coached team, against a team that's one of the best teams in the country," said Thompson, who is 200-97 over six seasons with Georgetown and four at Princeton, "So the stars were aligned properly."

Smith leads Pack past NC Central RALEIGH (AP) — What was supposed to be a nice break from the Atlantic Coast Conference grind turned into a tough game Saturday for North Carolina State. The Wolfpack found itself trailing by seven points early against roadweary N.C. Central, which in three previous games against ACC foes had lost by 47, 30 and 42 points. N.C. State went to its money player in the second half, shot 60 percent overall and forced the Eagles into a bevy of bad shots on the way to a 77-42 victory at a mostly empty RBC Center. “They came out with more energy than we did in the first half,” said Tracy Smith, who led the Wolfpack with 23 points on 9-of-11 shooting. “The second half, we played harder than they did.” Apparently, the Wolfpack didn’t think it needed to play hard against the Eagles, who had yet to beat a Division I team this season and were playing the last of five consecutive road games. “Maybe we took them for granted,” N.C. State’s Dennis Horner said.

Serena Williams reacts to a point won against Justine Henin during the women’s singles final match at the Australian Open Saturday.

Serena tops Henin to win Aussie Open JOHN PYE AP Sports Writer

MELBOURNE, Australia — Serena Williams loves a good underdog story and understood that most of the crowd was behind Justine Henin. All that sentiment was put aside once she heard an insult from the stands, a crack that went right to the heart of all athletes. Williams surged to a 6-4, 3-6, 6-2 victory in the Australian Open final Saturday, closing this chapter on Henin's remarkable comeback from retirement. "I think everyone was for Justine tonight," Williams said. "But you know what really helped me out? This one guy was like, 'You can beat her Justine, she's not that good.' "I looked at that guy and I was like, you don't know me," Williams added, wagging her finger. "I think I won all the games after that because that's totally rude." Williams plopped on her back at Rod Laver Arena after capturing her fifth Australian Open title, breaking her sequence of victories in this major in

each odd-numbered year since 2003. It also gave her more Australian titles than any woman in the Open era and allowed her to match Billie Jean King's career total of 12 majors in singles. Henin, in her first Grand Slam and only second tournament since she quit suddenly in May 2008, had gone on a stunning run to win 20 of 22 points to even the final at one set apiece and take a lead in the third. With her right thigh and left knee heavily taped and hampered by a litany of aches and pains, Williams had her backers in the crowd, sister Venus among them. But the knocks gave her the most motivation. "That is a part of being me. Like hearing things like that that inspires me to work harder, do better," Williams said. "I feel like I have things to prove." Henin, unranked, fell one win short of emulating fellow Belgian Kim Clijsters' amazing Grand Slam comeback at the U.S. Open last September.

RALEIGH (AP) — Brandon Sutter and Matt Cullen scored in a 26-second span in the third period, and Cam Ward made 39 saves to help the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-2 on Saturday night. Only 6,896 fans attended the game after snow and ice blanketed the area. Sergei Samsonov and Jussi Jokinen also scored for the Hurricanes, who have won five of their last six. Ward has stopped 129 of 134 shots in his last four games. Marian Hossa and Andrew Ladd scored for Chicago, and Cristobal Huet made 20 saves. Ladd, who beat Ward with a wrist shot in the third period, helped Carolina win the Stanley Cup in 2006 before he was traded to Chicago for Tuomo Ruutu last season. Chicago was 5-3 on its season-high, eight-game trip. Ward repeatedly foiled one of the NHL’s most

After Ladd tied it at 2, LaRose took a slap hot from the left boards that Sutter deflected past Huet with 10:52 remaining. On the next shift, Tom Kostopoulos rushed up the right side and centered the puck to Cullen, who tipped it past Huet’s blocker.

With Chicago perched near the top of the standings and Carolina trapped near the bottom, the game had the looks of a mismatch. But the Blackhawks’ exhausting trip — they beat San Jose on Thursday night — combined with the Hurricanes’ recent surge, made for an entertaining game. Near the end of a fast-

paced opening period, Samsonov scored on a rebound. After Andrew Alberts took a slap shot from close to the blue line, Kostopoulos tipped the puck to Samsonov in the crease. Samsonov had no trouble smacking the puck in the open net for his third goal in three games. Chicago asserted itself in the second, controlling the majority of the action. The Blackhawks tied it when Hossa took a pass from Patrick Sharp and cut to center of slot before backhanding the puck through Ward’s legs. The Hurricanes got a boost late when Jokinen one-timed a cross ice pass from Eric Staal past a sprawling Huet. Huet originally stopped the shot, but the puck dribbled over the goal line, giving the Hurricanes a goal that survived video review. Carolina is 11-1-3 when Jokinen scores. Alberts and Kostopoulos finished with two assists.

No. 22 Jackets get easy win over Kentucky St. GEORGE HENRY Associated Press Writer

ATLANTA — Kentucky State coach Clarence Moore doesn't believe Georgia Tech looks like a Final Four team — even if the Yellow Jackets spanked his own team by nearly 50. "I've seen a few games this season, and I don't see a leader out there," said Moore, a senior reserve when Georgia Tech advanced to the 2004 national title game. "To me, it looks like guys are trying to find themselves." Glen Rice Jr. scored 15 points, D'Andre Bell added 14 and No. 22 Georgia Tech breezed to a 98-50 victory Saturday over Kentucky State. The Yellow Jackets (16-5) have won four of five and improved to 11-1 at home, dipping out of the Atlantic Coast Conference to take on a Division II school from the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Six years ago in an NCAA tournament regional final at St. Louis, Moore had 14 points and five steals to help Georgia Tech beat Kansas in overtime and advance to the Final Four.

Derrick Favors and Mfon Udofia are freshmen, Iman Shumpert is a sophomore and Gani Lawal a junior. Moore thinks the team needs to find a coach on the floor.

"You have to have a vocal leader and someone who is willing to get on guys and know that he's going to catch it at some point as well," Moore said. "I would love to say that I was that guy and maybe some people would have said it."

Kentucky State hung with Georgia Tech until Troy Johnson cut the lead to 17-15 with a 3-pointer. The Yellow Jackets responded with a 48-14 charge that ended on Shumpert's dunk with 18:12 remaining. Hewitt, who pulled his starters a few minutes later, agreed with Moore's assessment. "Absolutely, that 2004 team collectively understood," Hewitt said. "You had Jarrett (Jack), who understood what it meant to play every possession like it was an important possession. This team doesn't understand that yet, and it's something we've talked about." Jarrod Gay had 16 points to lead the Thorobreds (4-13), who hit just 28.3 percent from the field. Tony Johnson added eight for Kentucky State while shooting 2 for 11.

Scrappy Noles beat Boston College BOSTON (AP) — Derwin Kitchen hit Florida State's only 3-pointer of the game in the closing minute and Solomon Alabi scored 16 points and had six rebounds, lifting the Seminoles to a scrappy 61-57 win over Boston College on Saturday. Michael Snaer, Chris Singleton and Ryan Reid each finished with 10 points for the Seminoles (16-5, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). It was just Florida State's third win in its last six games after a seven-game winning streak. Rakim Sanders led the Eagles (12-10, 3-5) with 17 points. Joe Trapani had 15 and seven rebounds. Kitchen also hit two free throws to seal it with 7.8 seconds left. Florida State, which entered the game leading the ACC in field goal defense, held Boston College to 43.6 percent shooting — the 57th straight opponent below 50 percent. With the score tied at 54-54, Alabi came up with a loose ball in a scramble on the defensive end after BC's Courtney Dunn was trapped near the foul line. Kitchen then hit his 3-pointer on the other end, giving the Seminoles a 5754 lead with 43.9 seconds left. "I was just clear coming down the court," he said.

Florida State’s Michael Snaer drives past Boston College’s Cortney Dunn in the second half of Saturday’s game. "It was either make it or miss it." The Seminoles finished just 1-for-13 from 3-point range. Following a turnover by the Eagles, Snaer hit two free throws with 30.5 seconds to go. "We needed it," Singleton said of Kitchen's shot. "We design plays so if they try to defend it, they can get open shots," said

Alabi, who had a pair of key baskets late in the game. The Eagles had pulled ahead 54-53 when Corey Raji was credited with a basket on Alabi's goaltending with 1:47 left, but Reid hit the front end of a 1-and-1 to tie with 1:17 to play. Alabi nailed consecutive short hook shots, giving Florida State a 52-50 lead

before Reggie Jackson tied it with a pair of free throws. The teams were tied three times early in the second half before BC pulled to a 48-44 edge on Tyler Roche's 3-pointer with just under seven minutes to play. FSU responded with the next two baskets, tying it at 48-all on Snaer's driving basket with 4:57 to go. "It was just the kind of game that was kind of dull offensively," Trapani said. "Whoever made the game-changing play was going to win the game. Kitchen hit that 3-pointer. That was kind of a backbreaker." BC led 27-22 at halftime. Neither team shot over 42 percent in the opening 20 minutes. The Eagles have the week off before hosting No. 8 Duke next Saturday. A cheer went up midway into the second half when Duke's 89-77 loss to No. 7 Georgetown was flashed on the scoreboard. It was a physical and, for many periods, sloppy first half. Midway into the opening 20 minutes, the teams combined for more turnovers (12) than field goals (11). "They have a big (front) line," Sanders said. "We had to be a little more physical to let our presence be felt."

FISHING, from page 1B before, a week of slightly warmer weather and longer days had the fish feeding, and even better days can be expected as we move through February and into March. The annual Kerr Lake catfish tournament dubbed the “Ice Bowl” had a turnout of 47 boats (25 from Virginia and 22 from North Carolina), with a total of 109 anglers hitting the water last Saturday morning out of Occoneechee Park in Clarksville, VA. Both the number of boats as well as the total number of

anglers were up from the 2009 event. Team Virginia not only beat the North Carolina team by 82.76 lbs. of total weight, but Virginia angler Michael Connor won the biggest fish challenge with a 48.16 lb. blue catfish. My grandson John turned a year old this week. Man how time flies. It won’t be long before I hand him his first pole and see him catch his first fish. Then, before you know it, he’ll be 16 (and I will be 66) and he’ll go through that spell where the smells of sporty cars and sweet

perfume will have a much better attraction to him than the smell of fish and fish bait. Come to think of it, that isn’t much of a competition is it? But I guess all smells have there own time and place. Next week’s article – Soup and snow cream report from the house. With over 8 inches of snow on the ground and sleet still falling, along with the forecast for more bad weather and temperatures barely above freezing through this coming week, I doubt there will be many people fishing, although

the fish are probably biting like crazy. I will have to pull out a warm weather fish tale. Tip of the week – Buy yourself some high quality treble hooks and swap out the stock hooks on your crank baits. This will provide a better chance of a hook up, especially when the fish are biting short. Some of today’s hooks (Gamakatsu and VMC for example) are so sharp they’ll hook a fish just for looking at them.

at Maryland and at home to North Carolina in the previous week and, for the first 13 minutes, seemed headed toward another defeat. This one, however, would have been far less palatable, given that N.C. Central entered the game 0-17 on the road and 4-18 overall. Smith’s layup with 8:47 remaining put the Wolfpack in front 53-34. Smith was 5 for 5 from the floor in the second half. “When we get the ball to him, good things happen,”

teammate Josh Davis said. Horner added 13 points and six rebounds for N.C. State, which made 18 of 23 shots after halftime and outrebounded the Eagles 36-24. “I thought we were patient, very patient,” N.C.

cut the lead to seven, but two more turnovers led to a 6-0 run and restored Georgetown’s 13-point lead. “When a team’s playing that well, sometimes they put you in a position where you hurry, or you scurry,” Krzyzewski said. “It’s not just their defense that does it, but the presence that that team has that day that forces you to make quick decisions.” The Blue Devils cut the deficit to seven again at 52-45, but Monroe stopped that momentum with a spin move in the paint and a big pump of the arm to celebrate. There were plenty of free throws the rest of the way in a game that had nearly as many fouls (52) as rebounds (54). The game provided a tough break for both schools from their demanding conference schedules. It was their fourth meeting in five

years, with the home team winning each time. “They’re really good, and I think we’re good,” Krzyzewski said. “But we weren’t good today.” The schools used the game to help publicize a new initiative to raise money for schools in refugee camps in the Darfur region of Sudan. NBA star Tracy McGrady, who has traveled to Darfur and helped start the campaign, also attended the game. But he was overshadowed by the really important guy seated near the student section, who was serenaded by chants of “Yes, we can!” as Georgetown closed out the victory. If the Hoyas had any nerves about playing before the president, they didn’t show it. “Extremely happy that the president was there,” Thompson said. “But we were more nervous about the guys sitting on the other bench.”

The Wolfpack shot 78.3 percent after halftime, a season-best for a half, to outscore the Eagles 50-22 after halftime. “I thought the deciding difference in the game was from the 3-minute mark on down in the first half,” N.C. Central coach LeV-

elle Moton said. “Things just didn’t go our way from that point on.” “We recovered at halftime, but we kind of wore down. They did a good job getting the ball to Tracy, pounding it down there, playing it through him, and we didn’t have an answer.” Smith scored 14 points in the first 12 minutes of the second half, and the Eagles missed 17 of their first 19 shots after halftime.

Serena Williams holds the trophy after beating Justine Henin to win the Australian Open championship in Melbourne, Australia Saturday.

OPEN, from page 1B semifinals before taking the title at Flushing Meadows in only her third tournament back from two years in retirement. “It’s been a very emotional two weeks for me,” said Henin, a 27-year-old, seven-time Grand Slam singles winner. “I thought it would never happen again. It’s been almost perfect. Just the last step, I couldn’t make it.” Henin slipped to 8-6 in her head-to-heads with Williams. But this was the first time they’d met in the Grand Slam final. In the even-numbered years between Serena’s triumphs in Australia, Henin won the 2004 title, had to quit during the 2006 final against Amelie Mauresmo and lost in the 2008 quarterfinals to eventual champion Maria Sharapova. That was her last major. Serena has now won three majors in 12 months, including Wimbledon and the Australian in 2009. Her conversion rate in Grand Slam finals is 12 of 15, second only to Margaret Court. Serena teamed with Venus to successfully defend their Australian Open doubles title Friday, their 11th Grand Slam doubles championship, and planned some family celebrations Saturday night. Another set of American siblings won the men’s doubles. Twins Bob and Mike Bryan combined for their fourth Australian Open title, a 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-3 win over Daniel Nestor of Canada and Serbian Nenad Zimonjic. Roger Federer and Andy Murray were to play for the men’s championship Sunday night. Murray is hoping to end a 74-year drought for British men at the majors. Federer, who

has the record at 15 career majors, cracked that he thought the drought had lasted 150,000 years. Still the 22-year-old Scot has already achieved something no British man has done in the Open era just by reaching two Grand Slam finals. His first ended in a straightsets loss to Federer at the 2008 U.S. Open. Murray is more confident this time. “I just feel physically more mature, mentally more mature,” Murray said. “Just a lot more experience in these sort of situations now.” He’ll need every bit of that. Federer is playing in his 22nd Grand Slam final and has won three of the four he’s reached at Melbourne Park. Murray conceded that Federer is “probably the best tennis player ever.” But he wasn’t indestructible, as shown by Rafael Nadal’s five-set win in the last Australian Open final and Juan Martin del Potro’s victory at the U.S. Open last September. “If I play my best, I think I’ve got a good chance against anyone,” Murray said. Williams said she’d tried matching Federer’s numbers in the majors, but it became too hard because the target keeps moving. She was happy to join King in sixth place on the career list of women’s major champions, and doubts she’ll get to Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova, who have 18 majors each. King was at the stadium Saturday to take part in a ceremony honoring the 40-year anniversary of Margaret Court’s season Grand Slam in 1970. “Billie, we are tied,” Williams said. “So I’ve reached my goal.”

DEVILS, from page 1B helped ignite an 18-3 run that gave the Hoyas the lead for good in the first half. Greg Monroe also finished with 21 points, and Austin Freeman added 20 for Georgetown (16-4), which shot 77 percent in the first half. The 71.7 shooting percentage for the game tied the third highest mark in school history and was the best since the Hoyas shot 71.9 against St. John’s in 1980. Georgetown nearly had the best shooting game ever against Duke, just shy of a 73.3 percent game by UCLA in 1965. “We could never match their emotion,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “The place was electric. Their team was electric, and they played that way for 40 minutes.” Nolan Smith scored 19 points, Kyle Singler had 18 before fouling out with 2:10 to play, and Jon Scheyer added 17 for the Blue Devils (17-4), who

shot only 37 percent. Duke committed 15 turnovers — actually one fewer than Georgetown — but five of them came in a two-minute, first-half meltdown while the Hoyas were pulling ahead to stay. First, Wright blocked Smith from behind on an outside jump shot, then seconds later stole the ball from Smith under the basket. Then came turnovers by Miles Plumlee, Smith and two by Scheyer, including a charging call. Jerrelle Benimon and Hollis Thompson each got a steal during the run, a needed boost from the thin Georgetown bench. By the time the run was over, Duke had gone nearly four minutes without a field goal, and Georgetown was ahead 34-20. The lead was 46-33 at the half. The Blue Devils tried in vain to make a game of it in the second half. A pair of early 3-pointers

Bears best Texas in overtime, 80-77

in school history. The Longhorns could have used Walton's nerves at the line. One of the worst free-throw shooting teams in the country, Texas went 19 of 31 against the Bears. One of those misses, by the Longhorns' best shooter, J'Covan Brown (94 percent), would have given Texas a three-point lead with 16 seconds left in regulation.

Given that opportunity to tie it with a basket, Baylor sent the game into overtime when Ekpe Udoh shot an airball on a 3-pointer but Texas left Anthony Jones all alone underneath to snag the ball and drop in an uncontested layup with 0.3 seconds left. Udoh, 0 for 11 from the field to that point, then made Baylor's first three baskets in overtime. He hit a soft hook over Dexter Pittman and converted an easy layup when he drove the lane through a group of Texas defenders. Brown cut the lead with a 3-pointer, then turned the ball over, leading to Udoh's dunk. Two free throws by Walton pushed the Baylor lead to 71-67. Udoh fouled out with 1:12 left and James got Texas to 75-73 with two free throws and a dunk after he stole the ball at midcourt from Carter.

already proven it can win big games. The Wildcats have beaten four ranked teams, including two in nonconference for the first time since 1958-59. The biggest was a 71-62 win over Texas two weeks ago, when the Wildcats muscled the Longhorns out of the No. 1 spot. The win over the Longhorns, one of the program’s biggest, had Bramlage Coliseum shaking from start to finish. Hard as it might be to imagine, the “Octagon of Doom” was filled with more (purple) juice for the Jayhawks. For one, it was KU. Of all the games on the schedule, Kansas is the one team everyone in the Little Apple loves to hate. The teams have been meeting since 1907, one of the longest-running rivalries in college basketball, and this game had the added drama of being the first since 1958 where both were ranked in the top 15. The fans had extra time to get lubed for the game, too; ESPN shot its college basketball show inside

Bramlage, where more than 8,100 purple patrons yelled and screamed for the cameras before noon. By the time the game rolled around, they were ready to burst like the balloons and beach balls that floated around the gym. It was the worth the wait. Shaking off some earlygame jitters, the Jayhawks and Wildcats settled into a rhythm, playing like you’d expect from two top 15 teams. It had all the typical ingredients of a rivalry game, too; the bumping and banging, emotional swings with seemingly every possession. Kansas had trouble holding onto the ball early but made up for it with superb shooting, opening 5 of 9 from the floor. Kansas State had five offensive rebounds in the first 4 1/2 minutes but couldn’t stop Aldrich and Morris, who combined for 17 points and 14 rebounds by halftime. Fitting for a taught game like this, one point separated the teams at the half, setting up the tense finish.

AUSTIN, Texas — Freshman guard A.J. Walton, a 47 percent free-throw shooter, made three of four foul shots in the final 17 seconds of overtime and No. 24 Baylor beat No. 6 Texas 80-77 on Saturday. Baylor led 77-76 before Walton made the second of two free throws. Texas' Justin Mason made one of two before Walton got to the line again with 10 seconds left and calmly hit both. Texas had one last chance to tie it but Avery Bradley's 3-pointer bounced off the rim at the buzzer. Baylor (16-4, 3-3 Big 12) got its first regular-season win over Texas (18-3, 4-2) since 1998.

Top-ranked UK tops Vandy 85-72 Jayhawks beat rival Wildcats in OT WILL GRAVES AP Sports Writer

LEXINGTON, Ky. — LeBron James turned out to be a better good-luck charm than the president for No. 1 Kentucky.With the NBA superstar — a good friend of coach John Calipari’s — watching from the front row, the Wildcats bounced back from an upset loss to South Carolina with an 85-72 victory over No. 21 Vanderbilt. Calipari secretly hoped James would get caught up in the snowstorm that blanketed the region early Saturday. It’s not that he didn’t want James at Rupp Arena, Calipari was simply fearful his team would get caught trying to impress one of the world’s most recognized athletes. “I ran into him in the hallway at halftime,” Calipari said. “I was worried he was coming. I thought it might be another distraction.” Calipari had good reason to be concerned. The Wildcats didn’t do so well on Tuesday after receiving a highly publicized phone call from president Barack Obama as a thank you for helping raise over $1 million in relief for earthquake ravaged Haiti. A few hours later Kentucky’s 19-game winning streak was snapped by the upstart Gamecocks. Calipari didn’t blame the loss on the phone call, but acknowledged it was simply part of a combustible mix that led the Wildcats to getting a little too full of themselves. There were no such problems against Vanderbilt. DeMarcus Cousins posted his 12th double-double — the most every by a Kentucky freshman — with 21 points and 10 rebounds to lead a balanced attack as the Wildcats (20-1, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) served notice

to the Commodores (16-4, 5-1) that they remain the team to beat in the SEC. “We’ve got a ways to go,” Calipari said. “We beat a good team. We’re getting balance.” And they’re getting consistent effort from Cousins, who shrugged when asked if he was nervous about playing in front of James. Having James in the stands is nothing new for the freshman big man, who said James was a regular at several summer camps Cousins attended during his high school days. “He was always around. I’m used to seeing him,” Cousins said. And James might get used to seeing Cousins in the NBA sooner rather than later if Cousins can continue his precocious play. Cousins almost singlehandedly gave Kentucky an early double-digit lead — he converted four threepoint plays in the game’s first eight minutes — and did his best to stay composed despite Vanderbilt’s best efforts to rattle him. “He is really quickly becoming a dominant inside player, maybe the best dominant inside player in our league,” said Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings. “We were trying to doubleteam him and we told our players what he would do when he was doubleteamed, and he did.” When the Commodores tried to throw two or more bodies at Cousins, he would spin toward the baseline for an easy basket or kick it outside to an open teammate for a jumper — the latest facet in his quickly developing game. And there were good looks aplenty for the Wildcats, who made 12 of 23 3-point attempts and dominated the boards, outrebounding Vanderbilt 41-22, leading to 20 second-chance points.

Rice beats ECU, 69-58 GREENVILLE (AP) — Tamir Jackson and Trey Stanton scored 18 points apiece, leading Rice to a 69-58 win over East Carolina on Saturday night. Arsalan Kazemi tallied a double-double for the Owls (7-13, 1-6 Conference USA), scoring 14 points and pulling down 14 rebounds. Lucas Kuipers chipped in with 10 points. Jontae Sherrod dropped in a layup to pull the Pirates within 20-16, but Stanton scored his second bucket in less than 30 sec-

onds for the Owls to start an 11-0 run. The Owls led the rest of the way, taking an 18-point advantage at halftime and hanging on despite being outscored 35-28 in the second. Darrius Morrow recorded a double-double to lead the Pirates (7-14, 1-6), scoring 20 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. The Owls, who now share last place with East Carolina in the C-USA, stopped a seven-game losing streak while the Pirates have lost six of their last seven.


MANHATTAN, Kan. — Sherron Collins bounced back from a back injury to score on a hard drive with 9 seconds left in overtime, helping No. 2 Kansas pull out a gritty 81-79 win over No. 11 Kansas State on Saturday night. Kansas (20-1, 6-0 Big 12) dismantled Missouri on Monday and closed out the rivalry week sweep by winning an epic back-and-forth battle with Kansas State (17-4, 4-3). Collins hit the floor with 2:44 left in overtime and went to the bench holding his back, then returned just in time to score on a baseline drive and was fouled on the play. He missed the free throw, but Cole Aldrich grabbed the rebound and Brady Morningstar hit two free throws to close out the Jayhawks’ 26th win in their last 27 games in Manhattan. Aldrich had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Marcus Morris added 13 points and 10 rebounds. Collins

ROSEMONT, Ill. — The way Jim Boeheim saw it, Syracuse had no business winning this one. Wes Johnson scored 16 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, and No. 4 Syracuse rallied from 18 down to beat DePaul 59-57 Saturday afternoon for its eighth straight win. “Tonight, we played two great minutes,” Boeheim said. “Not usually enough to win.” The Orange scored 16 straight to cut their deficit to two late in the first half, then took the lead with a 16-2 run in the second, escaping with a win after DePaul’s Will Walker missed a 3-pointer in the closing seconds. Kris Joseph added 15 points for Syracuse (21-1, 8-1 Big East), including a 3-pointer that started the decisive rally. Rick Jackson scored 10. Walker poured in 21 for DePaul (8-13, 1-8), which has lost nine of 10 and three straight since a win over Marquette that stopped a 24-game conference regular-season losing streak. Trailing 52-43 with about seven minutes left, Joseph buried a 3-pointer to start the go-ahead run. Andy Rautins connected from

the outside after DePaul’s Michael Bizoukas threw the ball away, and the Orange kept coming after the Blue Demons’ Mike Stovall hit two free throws. Scoop Jardine buried another 3-pointer, and Johnson tied it at 54 with a one-handed fastbreak dunk over Stovall. Jardine gave the Orange their first lead with a layup that made it 56-54 with 3:37 left, and Joseph converted a layup and hit a free throw to make it 59-54.

Ryuji Imada builds a 2-shot lead at Torrey Pines DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

SAN DIEGO — Ryuji Imada, a runner-up at Torrey Pines two years ago, has a much better opportunity this time. He won’t be starting the final round 12 shots behind, or trying to catch up to Tiger Woods. Imada avoided the trouble that caught up with so many other contenders Saturday, making only one bogey and escaping with several key pars for a 2-under 70 that gave him a two-shot lead over Ben Crane and Michael Sim in the Farmers Insurance Open.

Mickelson not taking ‘cheating’ accusation lightly DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

SAN DIEGO — Phil Mickelson hinted at legal action Saturday for being accused of "cheating," saying that if the PGA Tour did not do something about him being "publicly slandered," then he would let others handle it. Mickelson didn't mention Scott McCarron by name in a series of interviews after his third round at Torrey Pines. McCarron was quoted in The San Francisco Chronicle on Friday as saying about Mickelson using the Ping-Eye 2 wedges with square grooves, "It's cheating, and I'm appalled Phil has put it in play." The USGA has a new rule this year that irons have V-shaped grooves. However, the Ping-Eye 2 wedges that were made before April 1, 1990, remain approved for play through a Ping lawsuit that was settled 20 years ago and takes precedence over new regulations. Mickelson is using one of those wedges this week after reading about John Daly and Dean Wilson using them in Hawaii. When asked Friday about McCarron's quote about him cheating, Mickelson declined to get into what he referred to as "name-calling." Instead, he suggested that McCarron was upset with the new rule on grooves. But after a 70 in the third round put Mickelson within four shots of the lead, he made it clear he would not go quietly. "We all have our opinions on the matter, but a line was crossed and I just was publicly slandered," Mickelson said. "And because of that, I'll have to let other people handle that." Asked he was contemplating a lawsuit, Mickelson said, "I'm not going into specifics what that meant." Still, it was clear that his message reached PGA Tour headquarters. The tour released a statement

during the third round explaining why the PingEye 2 wedges with square grooves were approved for play. "Public comments or criticisms characterizing their use as a violation ... are inappropriate at best," the statement said. Told about the tour's statement, Mickelson paused before saying it was "cool if they put that out there." "Again, everybody has their opinions and so forth, and it's healthy to talk about it," he said. "But when you cross that line and slander someone publicly, that's when the tour needs to step in — or someone else." McCarron, who missed the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open, could not be reached for comment. He did not back off his criticism Friday of Mickelson using the wedges, although he used "bending the rules" instead of "cheating" in his comments. He maintains that Mickelson, and others using the Ping wedges, are violating the spirit of the new rule. Mickelson has been feuding with the USGA, in particular senior technical director Dick Rugge, since last summer when it became clear the new grooves would be effective this year. He said he was not even certain that 20-yearold wedges spun the ball more than his new wedges, yet offered no apologies because the clubs are approved for play. "I understand black and white," Mickelson said Friday. "And I think that myself or any other player is allowed to play those clubs because they're approved — end of story." Instead, the story might just now be starting. McCarron, who is on the 16-man Players Advisory Council, said the wedges would be discussed Tuesday at a PAC meeting in Los Angeles with PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem.

MIAMI — The NFL Pro Bowl's experimental one-year move to Miami has resulted in better ticket sales, more media coverage and some grousing by players. "I like Hawaii a lot better," Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison said. He and the other NFL all-stars wanted to end the season in Miami — but not this week. With a new venue and new slot on the league calendar, the Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday as a preliminary to next week's Super Bowl on the same field. It definitely feels like a warmup act. "There's a bittersweet taste," said quarterback Tony Romo, a late addition to the NFC roster after his Dallas Cowboys came up two wins shy of a Super Bowl berth. "You're always hoping to play in the big game." The NFL is trying to transform the Pro Bowl into a bigger game by playing it before the Super Bowl for the first time. The league also moved the game from Honolulu, its home since 1980. One result: The best attendance in 51 years, with a sellout crowd of more than 70,000 expected. But some players said they preferred the more exotic setting of Honolulu for the game. "Hawaii is considered kind of a vacation," San

Cleveland tackle Joe Thomas signs autographs after a practice for the Pro Bowl on Saturday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates said. "A lot of these guys are from Florida, and a lot of people come to Florida on a regular basis." Defections by players were numerous, as usual. More than a dozen pulled out citing injuries. Minnesota Vikings tackle Bryant McKinnie

was dismissed from the NFC team for unexcused absences after missing two days of practice. Nearly 40 percent of those originally selected won't play. That includes seven Indianapolis Colts and seven New Orleans Saints missing because they're preparing for the

Super Bowl, a drawback to playing the Pro Bowl first. "You take 14 guys from the Super Bowl teams that are not here," Gates said. "Does it mean it's a true all-star game now?" Frank Supovitz, the NFL's senior vice president for events, noted that the high defection rate was nothing new. It's not what the league sought to fix by changing the date and site of the game, he said. "The changes were meant to look at two things: Whether we could create more excitement with the Pro Bowl being the first event of Super Bowl week, and whether it would have an impact on TV ratings," he said. Ticket sales show the excitement level is up, Supovitz said. And he's optimistic about the U.S. television audience for the game. Those tuning in will see established stars such as Ray Lewis, Chad Ochocinco and DeMarcus Ware, as well as firsttime Pro Bowlers such as DeAngelo Williams, Clay Matthews and Matt Schaub. The U.S. TV audience they attract will help the NFL decide where and when to play future Pro Bowls. The game will return to Honolulu in 2011 and 2012, but the league hasn't decided whether to hold those games before or after the Super Bowl. The Pro Bowl site for 2013 and beyond hasn't been determined.

Jindal looking into ‘Who Dat’ lawsuit MELINDA DESLATTE Associated Press Writer

BATON ROUGE, La. — Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is getting into the "Who Dat" fray with the NFL, asking the state attorney general to look

into a possible lawsuit over the ownership rights to the popular New Orleans Saints phrase. Jindal spokesman Kyle Plotkin says the governor's executive counsel contacted Attorney General Buddy Caldwell's office Saturday.

The call came within hours of the state Democratic Party's governing body calling on Jindal to defend the rights of Louisiana citizens to use the term "Who Dat." Some T-shirt makers have been getting cease-

and-desist letters from the NFL demanding they stop selling shirts with the traditional cheer of Saints fans. The NFL claims the shirts infringe on a trademark it owns. The issue has outraged many residents.

Carolina’s Julius Peppers talks to Washington’s Brian Orakpo during practice at the Pro Bowl on Thursday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Peppers says he could be playing anywhere in 2010 STEVEN WINE AP Sports Writer

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The Pro Bowl means a $1.5 million bonus for Julius Peppers, which will tide him over until the next paycheck. He says he has no idea who will be writing it. “Anywhere is a potential landing spot,” the Carolina Panthers’ defensive end said following the final practice for the NFC all-stars Saturday. “I’m not going to say I want to play for any team or I prefer to play anywhere, because I really haven’t thought about it. I haven’t thought about playing for x, y or z.” Last year the Panthers gave Peppers the NFL’s highest singleseason salary of more than $1 million a game. The contract included a $1.5 million bonus for making the Pro Bowl. The deal came after the Panthers placed the restrictive franchise tag on him, denying Peppers his wish to leave in free agency. Carolina could re-

strict his movement by placing the franchise tag on him again, but that would come with a 20 percent raise, meaning a salary of more than $20 million. The Panthers haven’t said what their plans are. Peppers, who rarely talked to reporters this season, shed little light on his status Saturday. Is he waiting for an offer from Carolina? “I really have no idea what’s going on,” he said. Would he prefer to remain with the Panthers? “I don’t have a preference,” he said. How would he feel about switching to linebacker for a team that plays a 3-4 defense? “I’m just trying to get on a team right now,” Peppers said. “I just want to get a contract.” Peppers, who turned 30 this month, has spent his entire eightyear NFL career with the Panthers. He had 10 1/2 sacks, two interceptions and five forced fumbles this season.

Gilyard’s big plays outshine Tebow in Senior Bowl JOHN ZENOR AP Sports Writer

MOBILE, Ala. — Mardy Gilyard had 103 yards receiving and caught a 32-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter to help the North race to a 31-13 victory over the South in Saturday's Senior Bowl. Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, meanwhile, had a shaky outing running a pro-style offense against a sturdy defense. He fumbled twice and finished 8 of 12 passing for 50 yards in the showcase for senior NFL prospects. Tebow's longest completion was 11 yards and he netted 4 yards on four rushes, but was never turned loose as a power runner as he often was with the Gators. He battled strep throat early but didn't miss any practice time during a week when he was trying to prove to skeptical NFL teams and draft analysts that he could be a starting pro quarterback. One of the nation's top all-purpose threats, Gilyard also set up a thirdquarter touchdown with a 43-yard catch down the right sideline and had five receptions. Both that pass and the TD came from Central Michigan's Dan LeFevour. Michigan defensive lineman Brandon Graham had two sacks and a forced fumble and was chosen the game's Most Valuable Player.

North squad running back Rashawn Jackson, of Virginia, runs for a first down during the first half of the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. Saturday. Gilyard returned two kicks for 52 yards and gained 24 on two punt returns. He was named offensive player of the game while Mississippi State's Jamar Chaney earned defensive honors. Tulane receiver Jeremy Williams had six catches for 82 yards and added a 27-yard run on an end around, and was chosen the South's most outstanding player. That

honor went to Central Michigan's LeFevour for the North. He completed half of his 10 passes for 97 yards and added a 1-yard touchdown run on a sneak, once again outdistancing the much more heralded Tebow. LeFevour finished with more total touchdowns (150) than any other player in Football Bowl Subdivision, including Tebow (145).

Zac Robinson had the game's best passing numbers, throwing for 176 yards and a touchdown before getting intercepted late in the game. Tebow played 11 snaps in the first half, and the South was down two scores by the time he re-entered the game to loud applause late in the third. Dexter McCluster fumbled two plays into his first drive of the half, and his second began at the South's 1-yard line. Tebow led the South to a couple of first downs before Koa Misi stripped the ball from him. He had another fumble on the next drive but lineman Jeff Byers fell on the ball. Gilyard's teammate, Tony Pike, is considered the top-rated NFL prospect among the participating quarterbacks and he looked solid in a brief outing. He was 5 of 12 for 45 yards all in the first half. Gilyard caught two of those passes for 21 yards. LeGarrette Blount had a 14-yard touchdown run for the North, while Lonyae Miller gained a game-high 44 yards on nine carries. Alabama players accounted for all of the South's points. Robinson hit tight end Colin Peek for a 19-yard touchdown and Leigh Tiffin booted field goals of 43 and 33 yards.

McKinnie dismissed from Pro Bowl squad FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie has been dismissed from the NFC Pro Bowl team for unexcused absences. The NFL said McKinnie missed practice Friday and Saturday and is subject to a fine. His agent didn't respond to messages seeking comment. This was the first Pro

Bowl selection for McKinnie, whose Vikings lost to New Orleans in the NFC championship last Sunday. Defensive end Julius Peppers also had an unexcused absence Friday, but was back at practice Saturday. Since the rosters for Sunday's game in Miami were first announced, more than a dozen players have been scratched.

Motocross mutt

Off-road racing dog has need for speed


SUE MANNING Associated Press Writer

ERRIS, Calif. (AP) — Opee is only 8, but he’s already a popular veteran in the down and dirty sport of motocross. He can pull 6 Gs. He’s been the centerfold for Cycle News and poses regularly for fan photos. He’s a survivor of the grueling Baja 500 and has racked up more than 10,000 hours on a dirt bike. Sometimes, you can barely see the 70-pound pooch — a blue merle Australian shepherd — through the dust on his goggles and his custom helmet, complete with cam. “I am his biggest fan,” said Mike Schelin, Opee’s owner, race partner and a purveyor of used motorcycle parts from a shop next to his mobile home. Schelin got the dog in 2001 shortly after his divorce. He raises him with other dogs and two horses at a spread he calls Miracle Flats. Known as “The Dogfather” to some in the sport, Schelin always takes a back seat to Opee. “He was my instant best friend,” Schelin said. “He slept in my tool bag. There was something about him. He’s had charisma since Day One. I knew I had a dog who could make a difference.” Schelin, 41, realized he had a fourlegged motocross fan as a pet when he started riding in the desert with Opee on the chase. “I felt bad for him, he would run so long.” So Schelin bought a four-wheeler and they went desert riding together. The dog didn’t like the dust in his eyes, so Schelin got him goggles. One day, Opee ditched the four-wheeler and hopped on the motorcycle tank, where he’s been ever since, Schelin said. If the bike isn’t moving, Opee will just fall asleep on the tank. They keep it bare because they’ve never found a covering that’s comfortable for the dog, Schelin said. Reaction to Opee was magic. He was an instant canine ambassador to offroading. Finding sponsors was no problem and soon Opee had his own custom gear, including a specially made neck brace, inflatable vest, backpack, water supply and several jerseys. He got his American Motorcycle Association card and his SCORE International card, the

latter so he could race in Baja. The dog does lots of other things, too. He’s been a search and rescuer, a California assistance dog and visits kids in hospitals with Schelin. They regularly work crowds at races in the area, including the Supercross in Anaheim. Opee appears to be Schelin’s biggest fan as well. “From what I see, he loves Mike and would go anywhere with him,” said Ricky Johnson, a seven-time national motorcycle champion who owns Perris Raceway near Schelin’s place. Opee and Schelin race, but not to win. Because they’re different and for safety’s sake, they always start in the rear and they only compete with the cyclist in front of them, Schelin said. Schelin’s greatest triumph came when his five-member team — with Opee in the driver’s seat for 276 miles — finished the cross-country Baja 500 with 10 minutes to spare — in 17 hours, 49 minutes, 36 seconds — and ahead of half the pack. “The average person races eight times

before he finishes,” he said. In the beginning, Schelin had trouble seeing around Opee, but they worked out shifts and leans and it’s seldom a problem now. Schelin also uses voice commands. “When we come up to a jump, I tell him to set it up and he will drop down and give me more of a view,” Schelin said. If they’re at the bottom of a cliff or big hill and there’s too much weight, he just tells Opee to get off and meet him at the top. Schelin doesn’t go racing without Opee these days. “I can’t go as fast without him. I can’t jump as far without him. I don’t feel as safe without him. He’s become a natural part of the bike with me. We have this natural rhythm.” Even the most skilled motocross racer has a plaster cast past and Opee is no exception. His worst crash came in the 2006 Baja 500. “We took a spill at 75 mph in the dirt and went into a 40-foot skid,” Schelin

said. The dog isn’t attached to the bike or Schelin in any way. He skinned his nose and scraped his paw. Schelin sliced his leg. The injuries weren’t enough to put them out of the race though. “I would never do anything to hurt my dog,” Schelin said. “Opee keeps me in check at all times. If he doesn’t jump up on the bike, we don’t go.” Schelin is not only racing partner but stage dad for his dog, with a few goals for the future: Do a back flip with Opee into a foam pit (“he would hold on the same way I do — gravity”); see Opee recognized as the fastest dog on the planet (he’s written to Guinness); take a tandem skydive; and go to the movies to see Opee in a major motion picture. Schelin answered a Hollywood agent’s TV ad three years ago, but he hasn’t heard back and is looking for representation. Opee, he said, is too talented to go undiscovered. “The only thing missing is the cape.”

Dollar Baby (2006), and School Days (2005). Earlier Spenser novels included Mortal Stakes (1975), Early Autumn (1981), and God Save the Child (1987). We have plenty of novels written during the intervening years as well. Another Robert Parker character, Jesse Stone, has been featured in made-for-TV-movies in recent years. Titles from this series include Stranger in Paradise (2009), High Profile (2007), Sea Change (2005), Stone Cold (2003) and Death in Paradise (2001). • “Let’s Talk About It” series: The next session will be Feb. 9 at Perry Library. The next book to be discussed is A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest Gaines. This popular book talk program is sponsored by The Friends of the Library and the N.C. Humanities Council (“Many Stories, One People”). The theme is law and literature. The series is named for Eva Rubin, a leading scholar on public policy and the U.S. Supreme Court. The books focus on the formidable interactions between the justice system and the lives of individuals. The following sessions will focus on the books Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson and The Emperor

DEAR ABBY: My fiance died three years ago of cancer. He was only 27. His diagnosis was a shock, and he was gone from complications of treatment barely a month later. Prior to this, while planning our life together, I became close with his family. After his death, I don’t know what I’d have done if they hadn’t been there for me. Although many people symclient pathized, my almost-in-laws came closest to understanding my devastation and pain.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I married four years ago. My oldest daughter dates my husband’s brother and they’re expecting a baby together, although they are not married. Can you please tell me what this child should call me, my husband and our other children? We’re confused about it and don’t want the child to be confused about who’s who. Any help you can offer on this will be greatly appreciated. — TAMI IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR TAMI: You are the baby’s biological grandmother, and your husband is the baby’s biological uncle and step-grandfather. Your children are going to be aunts or uncles. Congratulations to all of you. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded will fillby her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.






Simply put, we helped each other through it. We remain close to this day. I spend time with his mom and sisters, am invited to birthday dinners and holidays, and we get together on his birthday and the anniversary of his passing. Is this OK? Is it normal? When people hear that we’re still so close, I have had reactions from, “That’s wonderful!” to “You’re holding onto the past.” Although there are still some tears, there is now more laughter when we share memories. And I have begun dating again. I don’t feel that by preserving our relationship we are stuck in the past. Do you? — DOUBTING IN WALNUT CREEK, CALIF. DEAR DOUBTING: There are degrees of involvement. You came very close to being an official member of that family, but fate thought otherwise. Whether your ties remain as tight when you fall in love again remains to be seen. But for now you are all meeting each other’s needs — and as long as it doesn’t hold you back, it’s all right with me.


DEAR ABBY: When my partner and I eat at a restaurant, the server often clears my partner’s plate before I am finished. I am not a slow eater, but I generally finish after she does. When the server removes her plate, I’m left feeling like I have to rush to finish my meal and that our “shared dinner time” is over. Am I wrong to feel that it’s rude to take away the dishes before everyone at the table is done? As a hostess at home, I wait until the entire table is finished eating before I clear. On the other Dear hand, Abby just about every place Universal Press Syndicate where we eat out does this, so maybe I should get used to it. What do you think? — SUE IN GLOUCESTER, MASS. DEAR SUE: Here in the United States, it is common for servers to take the empty plates from the table. In Europe, diners often linger over a meal, enjoying coffee — a liqueur, perhaps — and good conversation. How does your partner feel about having her plate cleared? If she would prefer that it remain while you finish your dinner, all she needs to do is say to the server, “Please leave it until Sue is done.” If she’s unwilling to do that, then I think you’ll have to get used to it.

Past Sundance sweetheart Ferrera returns to indie festival By DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie Writer

PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — America Ferrera came to the Sundance Film Festival eight years ago as an unknown with only one professional acting gig behind her. She’s back as a star. The star of “Ugly Betty” had her coming out party at Sundance in 2002 with “Real Women Have Curves,” the tale of a Mexican-American teen caught between her parents’ traditional working-class values and her own desire to go to college. The film won the audience award as the festival favorite chosen by Sundance fans, earned Ferrera an acting prize, and became a calling card for a Hollywood future with “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” and its sequel, along with her TV show. It was the first professional acting job for Ferrera, who was 17 at the time and struggling for a toehold in a town where curvy Hispanics tend to get cast in working-class ethnic parts while waferthin blondes score the best lead roles. “What’s so kind of beautiful about the whole thing was that everything that made me not right for all of those hundreds of commercial auditions that I went on and no one ever wanted me for is what made me perfectly right for ‘Real Women Have Curves,’ ” said Ferrera, 25, who is back at Sundance with the Iraq War homecoming drama “The Dry Land.” “There’s not really a choice about, am I going to pursue a typical career? Because I’m not the typical standard, so that’s not even an option. I just have to be who I am and seek out things that fit me, are right for me. I was just so lucky with ’Real Women Have Curves.’ At that point, I would have done an insurance commercial. I would have done anything.” Written and directed by Ferrera’s boyfriend, Ryan Piers Williams, “The Dry Land” features her as a troubled wife dealing with the violent mood swings of her husband (Ryan O’Nan), a soldier afflicted with

post-traumatic stress disorder from combat in Iraq. Ferrera had her doubts that Williams would get the film into production, given how other war-onterror movies have failed to find an audience. Yet her boyfriend was determined, and Ferrera eventually signed on as an executive producer as well as co-star. “She pushed me so hard to just make the script better and better and better and to just never settle for anything less than the vision I was setting out to make,” said Williams, who also made a short film with Ferrera and now makes his feature debut. Ferrera got in touch with some old friends, including Melissa Leo, who had played her mother in an episode of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” six years ago. “America called out of the blue and asked, would I read her boyfriend’s script? About 12 pages in, I got back in touch with her and Ryan and said, ‘I will do this at any time. Just tell me when and where. I will be there and join you,’ ” said Leo, who plays Ferrera’s ailing mother-in-law in “The Dry Land.” Leo said she knew when she first met Ferrera that the young actress had a great future ahead. Early on, though, Ferrera faced casting directors who could not get a handle on her Hispanic looks but all-American voice and bearing. “I realized how Latina I was, and then also, at the same time, how not Latina enough I was, because I’m born and raised in Los Angeles. I speak Spanish, but I don’t speak perfect Spanish, not like a native speaker. So I’d go into an audition, and they’d ask me if I could sound more Latina,” Ferrera said. “I was like, I don’t know what you mean. I was born, I was raised in the San Fernando Valley. I’ve been to 35 bar mitzvahs. What do you want from me?” Ferrera does get to play against type in the upcoming animated comedy “How to Train Your Dragon.” She provides the voice of Astrid, a blonde, blue-eyed Viking warrior.

Celebrity Briefs Timberlake wins Harvard’s Hasty Pudding award CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Justin Timberlake will soon have a new piece of hardware for his trophy case — a pudding pot. The Grammy and Emmy award winner was named Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Man of the Year on Tuesday. Timberlake will receive the award at a roast set for Feb. 5. Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the nation’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe, said in a statement that the singer, songwriter, actor and producer was selected because he’s “one of pop culture’s most influential entertainers.” His album, “Justified,” produced four No. 1 singles, making him the first artist in Nielsen Top 40 history with four No. 1 hits from one album. He has also appeared on television and in movies, including “Alpha Dog.” Actress Anne Hathaway was named Hasty Pudding

Woman of the Year earlier this month.

Jennifer Lopez to appear on ‘How I Met Your Mother’ NEW YORK (AP) — Jennifer Lopez will play a selfhelp expert on an episode of the CBS comedy “How I Met Your Mother” in March. The actress-singer portrays Anita Appleby, a no-nonsense author who tries to “train” men into better behavior in relationships. Her target is Neil Patrick Harris’ playboy-bachelor character, Barney. Appleby makes it her mission to break him. Carter Bays, the show’s co-creator, joked Wednesday about Lopez’s appearance: “We’re looking forward to a week of revealing outfits and sexy dance moves the likes of which this show hasn’t seen since Regis Philbin gueststarred.” The exact date of Lopez’s episode hasn’t been set. The Monday-night comedy recently reached a milestone with its 100th episode.

10 red flags that can sink a home sale CAMILLA MCLAUGHLIN For The Associated Press


ew things induce anxiety and frustration more than having a home sale delayed, especially when your belongings have already been loaded onto the moving truck. Yet, few paths from contract to closing are without an obstacle or two. Good real estate agents are attuned to red flags that come up, but consumers should also be aware of potential problems and how to avoid many bumps in the road. “Purchasing a home is an intensely personal and emotional process. It is not uncommon for minor hiccups to become major issues due to the emotional nature of the transaction,” says Walt Danley a Coldwell Banker agent in Phoenix, Ariz. Here are some of the most common:

1. The buyer has an existing home to sell.

Even if potential buyers have a mortgage preapproval and claim they can buy without selling their current home, when the deadline nears some of these buyers balk. Quite often, the mortgage approval disappears, says Don Bruemmer, a broker with Plumb & Company in Salt Lake City, Utah. To troubleshoot a dilemma like this, and spare sellers the loss of valuable days on market, Bruemmer specifies a mortgage contingency requiring the buyer to apply to two mortgage companies. A refund of the deposit would only be given if the buyer is declined by both companies. 2. Underground oil tank or an old septic system. Environmental issues can muck up a deal, especially in states with strict regulations. Underground oil tanks were popular in the Northeast at one time but are now considered a hazard because of potential leaks. Typically real estate agents suggest sellers remove tanks before putting the home on the market. Septic regulations vary by municipality and some states such as Massachusetts require a system be inspected and meet strict standards before the home is sold. The repair or replacement can be expensive and

time consuming so sellers should get the necessary approvals ahead of time. However, they should follow the timelines and dates required by their state and/or municipality.

Usually this occurs when the owners have been in the home a long time. Real estate agents should be on the lookout for potential problems like this. Many will do the research to locate lost documents.

3. The lender is unknown to the real estate agents. Delays in approvals, last minute changes in terms can snag a deal. Experienced agents suggest having the buyers be pre-approved by a second lender, one both real estate agents work with and know can complete the work in a timely fashion. Then if a glitch comes up there will be a fall back.

8. Inspection opens the door to new price negotiation. Home inspections are performed to uncover hidden defects that are not easily observable to consumers and real estate agents. Sellers should be proactive and repair everything they can and/or get estimates for any work they know needs to be done, since even minor issues can have buyers questioning the price. Also, rather than have any repair items deducted from the price, and possibly delay the mortgage approval, some agents suggest sellers make a separate payment to the buyers. Michelle Bellasari with Real Associates Florida Properties in Boca Raton, Fla., says she troubleshoots potential defects ahead of time, such as a roof repairs which might be a deal breaker. Most of her first-time buyer clients have limited funds and cannot afford to waste money inspecting a home if there are obvious and expensive near-term repairs.

4. Phone calls or e-mails are not returned. Good communication speeds negotiations. When title companies don’t respond or when an agent dodges calls, it can slow down the process or be an indication of a brewing problem. Although there is no absolute solution, the best precaution is to be proactive. If the seller is a bank, or the owner needs the bank’s approval (because the home is selling for less than the mortgage), the process can take much longer than a typical sale, and there is little real estate agents or buyers can do to hurry the process. 5. A property disclosure statement was left unsigned. The property disclosure informs buyers about any known problems or defects of the property and explains what sellers have done to repair or resolve them. The price offered by buyers should take the disclosure into account. Experienced real estate agents won’t allow sellers to agree to an offer until the buyer signs the statement. 6. Out of town appraiser. Appraisers who are unfamiliar with a type of property, price bracket or area are a caution flag for real estate agents. Even if there have been multiple bids on a home, banks and mortgage companies will not go above the appraised value. Buyers can still complete the purchase but will have to close the gap between appraised value and sale price with additional cash. Sellers should ensure agents can back up the list price with recent comparable sales. Although they can’t influence appraisers, real estate agents can give them this information. 7. Garages turned into rooms and other additions. Often the necessary permits were not obtained, have been lost or the municipality can’t locate the records.

9. A change in the terms of a mortgage. Suddenly payments on a 15year mortgage seem too high or high fees offset a low interest rate. Changing terms can restart the clock and delay a deal. By law, a lender is required to provide a good faith estimate of fees and rates within three days of receiving a mortgage application. Even if they are only being prequalified for a mortgage, potential buyers should ask for a good faith estimate so they understand fees and rates. 10. An unknown lien is uncovered. Old paid-off mortgages that have not been registered are the most typical title issue uncovered. In rural areas, water rights, property lines or other easements can cloud the chain of ownership and they are often not uncovered until the title is researched. Experienced attorneys who specialize in real estate can often find a solution so the sale proceeds on time.
