Man dies when tree falls on him Windy conditions cited in 84-year-old’s accident From STAFF REPORTS

WILTON — An 84-yearold man died on a windy Friday afternoon after a large pecan tree fell on him while he was on a tractor at a farm off Grove Hill Road near the Wilton community in the southeastern part of Granville County, Sheriff Brin Wilkins said. L.B. Strother was bushhogging with a 135 Massey Ferguson and was beside a tobacco packhouse when the accident occurred, Wilkins said. One of the neighbors found Strother, Wilkins said. Emergency 911 received the call at approximately 3:40 p.m. This is the second time a county resident has died as a result of an accident involving a tree. The previous one happened Feb. 23 west of Oxford and claimed the life of 65-year-old James Duke Bradsher. He had sawed down a pine tree when the top of another tree popped out, fell and struck him.

Most young children are eager to go to school. They constantly talk about the special day when they will go to school for the first time. Although they are eager to go, when the time comes, they often begin to get “butterflies” inside. They may be worried about being away from Vickie parents, Jones nervous about Cooperative being Extension with strangers or scared about going to a new place. Parents, too, feel excited. They’ve looked forward to this time as well. Yet, parents may be apprehensive and have concerns about leaving their child, nervous about their child’s health and safety, and unsure about their new responsibilities as parent of a child in a formal school. To reduce apprehensions of both parent and child, prepare. Before the start of school, a child

needs to learn new skills. They should learn waiting in turn and being tested, sharing and cooperating with others and solving problems without hitting. Your child should learn to listen in a group and follow directions and routines. Preparing your child for school will give you and your child the confidence and direction to make the transition to school as smooth as possible. To make the change easier for you and your child: • Visit the school your child will attend. • Walk or ride the route to school. • Look around the classroom and point out different things. • Find the bathroom and the nurse’s office. • Introduce your child to the principal and his or her teacher • Find out what the school expects of you. Learning about your child’s school program and your new role as a school parent may help ease your worries and fears. It also may help you do a better job preparing your child. While preparing your child for school, teach him/ her the following:

opportunity for (districts) to assess their faculty and which faculty they should keep.” The final agreement also didn’t contain a House proposal that would have eliminated funding for teacher assistants in third grade. Legislative leaders also said late Friday the budget: • Would close seven small or aging prisons, leaving open an eighth threatened with closure in Haywood County.

Council, will be its representative on the new EDC. In other business Friday, the Planning and Environmental Committee decided to recommend Monday night that the Board of Commissioners pick Entasis Design of Kannapolis as the apparent low bidder at $27,800 to do a reuse feasibility study of the former Vance Manor building in the Flint Hill area. The company is proposing a 90-day turnaround with a maximum of five end uses. Their cost figure is under the $29,000 that the County has to spend on the project. The money the commissioners have to work with includes a $25,000 North Carolina Rural Center planning grant and a required $4,000 local match. The committee members were told Friday that Entasis is recommended by the City of Henderson as very “thorough and knowledgeable.” The company was recommended to the City of Henderson by the N.C. Rural Center. According to the County’s Planning and Development Department, Entasis’ design drawings, marketing and presentation are subpar when compared to Kilian Engineering and

Vance County Sheriff Peter White said he had no additional information on the case. But the plot thickens. By the time Chastain came back to the property on Friday, a second gang apparently had moved in to mark over the first group’s work with a different color of paint: blue. Some of the words are clear and vulgar. Many seem to be code words or symbols that mean something to the gangs, Chastain suggested, but not to anyone else. Chastain said she was surprised that the sheriff’s office was so quick to stop investigating the case. “I was told there are gang experts on their staff, but they haven’t been here yet” to see the building and the graffiti, Chastain said. The businesswoman said she was unaware that gangs were so prevalent — and so brazen with their activity — in the local area. And while spray-painting is a non-violent act, she said, it seems clear that there is hostility brewing if one group is so quick to move in and paint over the marked territory of another. A more violent retaliation could be in the offing, she suggested. “I think parents and citizens need to know,” Chastain said. Send comments to news@

The Freelon Group which also submitted bids. Besides Entasis, the other bidders included: • The Freelon Group of RTP at $39,250 with a proposed eight-week turnaround and three proposed end uses. • Kilian Engineering of Henderson at $38,800 with a proposed 45-day turnaround and three proposed end uses. • Major S. Sanders Jr. of Greensboro with a proposed eight-week turnaround, but with no final price given and no examples of work. “Our funds are dictating our actions,” Garrison said. Contact the writer at

The budget agreement came a few hours after Perdue signed into law a stopgap spending measure — the third since July 1 — that directs state agencies how and what to spend while the final budget is worked out. The previous spending plan was to expire at 11:59 p.m. Friday. Republicans have complained the budget gap is smaller than Democrats characterized and higher taxes aren’t necessary because government has operated without them under the stopgap plan.

university athletic and academic scholarships for out-of-state residents, with taxpayers picking up the difference. The tentative deal comes a day after tax negotiators agreed on a way to raise $990 million in additional taxes and $1.3 billion next year to close the budget gap, which Democrats calculate at $4.7 billion. The revenue package would raise the sales tax rate by a penny so that most consumers would pay 7.75 percent through mid-2011. An income tax surcharge would be placed upon individuals whose taxable income is as little as $60,000 and all profitable corporations. Cigarette and alcohol excise taxes would go up, although a handful of House Democrats were still trying to find a way this week to block them.

That may be a problem. If we find more money we can probably work it out.” Garrou said she believed only a couple of districts could lose teachers under the proposal. She expected high schools to cut from nonessential services or not teach certain classes that have few interested students this year. “I can’t promise any teacher that they’re going to have a job,” Garrou said. “This has been an

Watchers track butterflies for environment signs By GREG BLUESTEIN Associated Press Writer

HILLSBORO, Ga. — The rusty van creaks to a halt and two men jump out, binoculars in hand, heads pivoting. Quickly, questioningly, they call out evocative names: Is that a Pearl Crescent? A Carolina Satyr? A Sleepy Orange? A Swarthy Skipper? It’s butterfly counting time at a central Georgia wildlife refuge. That means a sweaty but fun outing for these two men, one a retired entomologist, the other the abbot of a Roman Catholic monastery. But it has a serious side: Some researchers worry butterfly populations may be in decline, possibly signaling a worsening environment. The flying insects are often viewed as canaries in a coal mine because they are sensitive to changes in their habitats. “When you see the absence of butterflies, you know something is wrong,� says Jerry Payne, the entomologist on the recent counting expedition to Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge, about 70 miles (112 kilometers) south of Atlanta. Payne has tracked butterfly habitats for years. “Unfortunately, we have met the enemy — and he is us,� Payne says. “Man is the biggest reason for declining butterfly populations. We’re taking away their land.� Butterflies play a key environmental role as a pollinator, fertilizing wild and cultivated plants by carrying pollen from one flower to another. In human eyes, butterflies are also a powerful symbol because of their transformation from caterpillar to graceful flight. That makes them a good standard-bearer for raising public awareness about Paid Obituary habitat decline and species preservation, says Jaret Ernestine B.

Jerry Payne looks for butterflies June 26 during the annual butterfly count in Hillsboro, Ga.. A count of the insects in a central Georgia wildlife refuge may seem trivial, but researchers say the fluttering creatures are an important barometer for a healthy ecosystem. At right is a Pearl Crescent butterfly. up workshops this year to train zoos, museums and others in butterfly conservation. Some enthusiasts aren’t sounding the alarm yet. Jeffrey Glassberg, president of the North American Butterfly Association, cautions that only a handful of species are in danger. “You have to look at the big picture here,� says Glassberg, a retired molecular geneticist who wrote the authoritative field guide, “Butterflies of North America.� ‘’There is still plenty of habitat.� But other researchers say there are clear signs that butterfly populations are under increasing threat, due either to climate change or human sprawl. A 2006 report by the National Academy of Sciences found evidence that some butterfly species key to pollination are on the decline. “If you look at the numbers overall, they are declining slowly,� says Daniels, an assistant entomology professor at the University of Florida. “There’s no overriding trend of alarm, but within individual pockets there is.� To get a better idea of what’s happening, various state and federal agencies with environmental mis-

sions team up annually with butterfly groups to plan hundreds of counts — including a handful of new sites that sprout up each year. The counts aren’t exactly scientific, as they largely depend on the talents and know-how of the volunteers. And it depends on how many enthusiasts show up to scout a park. But they help give researchers an idea of the diversity and relative numbers of butterflies in a given area. They also help bring together enthusiasts like Payne and Francis Michael Stiteler, the abbot, who have been counting butterflies for years. Stiteler started out following dragonflies, but turned to butterflies soon after arriving at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Georgia in the 1970s. He says he was “like a kid in a candy shop� roaming the monastery’s 2,000 acres (800 hectares) with binoculars and a camera to log the area’s butterfly tenants. It’s become a handy way to relieve the stress that comes with running the 40-monk

Payne has long been a bug buff — obsessed with insects since he was a hard-luck teen who couldn’t get many dates. Compared to dating, he says now, “Insects were much cheaper to work with.� The two “butterflyers� were among about a dozen who descended on the Georgia refuge on a sweltering morning in late June, bringing the two most important elements of the hunt: Sharp eyes and keen peripheral vision. “I get rid of all the other stuff,� says Payne, “and I just see the butterfly.� The refuge’s gravel roads were empty as they roamed in Payne’s van, but sometimes it felt like they were in an invisible traffic jam: Payne repeatedly slammed on the brakes to catch some real or imagined flicker of movement outside the dusty windows.

Racial discrimination lawsuit filed against auto dealership By JOHN McCANN The (Durham) Herald-Sun

DURHAM — A discrimination lawsuit has been filed in Durham County Superior Court against Ellington-Brim Chevrolet in Creedmoor. The lawsuit claims that Durham resident Charles Jackson, who is black, was working in the dealership’s repair shop and that racial epithets were common, creating such a hostile work environment that he needed medication. The lawsuit also claims that while Jackson was working in the repair shop, one of the dealership’s owners, Ronnie L. Ellington, who is white, threatened to cut him. In addition to the dealership, John Larry Brim and Onnie Gore are named as defendants in the lawsuit. Both

Brim and Gore are white and listed in the lawsuit as owners of the dealership. Brim said that the lawsuit would be challenged, but that he had no further comment. Durham attorney Michael Kornbluth is representing Jackson. According to the lawsuit, in July 2007, Jackson was eating in the dealership’s lunchroom when Ellington looked at him and said, “I got to eat with a n-----.� Ellington, according to the lawsuit, walked out, returned just a couple of minutes later and, while pointing in the direction of the auto shop, said, “N-----s eat out here.� Jackson said he had heard from co-workers that racially disparaging comments about black people were common. A white employee at the dealership, according to the suit, told Jackson that

Ellington said “n-----s need to be poor.� Numerous mechanics at the dealership were told not to speak with Jackson, according to the lawsuit. Feeling ostracized, Jackson would retreat to a corner near the entrance of the dealership’s repair shop to eat lunch or he would leave the dealership, according to the lawsuit. All of those alleged experiences at the dealership triggered in Jackson memories of his school days back in the 1960s in Sanford, where white classmates racially degraded him. The words Jackson heard from Ellington led to depression and required medication to be able to sleep, according to the lawsuit. Jackson wants to make a case to a jury for compensation.

SBA offers economic disaster loans Small businesses in Vance, Granville and Warren are among North Carolina counties that may apply for federal economic disaster loans because of damages from drought and excessive heat that began Jan. 1, 2008, the Small Business Administration announced. The application deadline is Aug. 24. The counties are eligible because they are contiguous to counties in Virginia that have been affected by

drought and heat and declared eligible for the loans. “When the Secretary of Agriculture issues a declaration to help farmers recover from damages and losses to crops, the Small Business Administration issues a declaration to assist small businesses and most private, non-profit organizations affected by the same disaster,� said Frank Skaggs, Director of SBA’s Field Operations Center East.

Daily Meditation The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools. Proverbs 3:35

Our Opinion

The real clunker As government ideas go, this one was a clunker. And yet we, the taxpayers, are going to fund the lunacy to the tune of an extra $2 billion. Word began to spread Thursday night that the $1 billion federal “Cash for Clunkers” program that had only just begun, was already broke. So many cars had been traded in — many of them hardly “clunkers” at all, but eligible for government tax rebates anyway — that the billion Congress had set aside for this particular hunk of pork in a hog farm of a stimulus bill wasn’t enough to cover even the early demand. The very popularity of the program is the first clue that the plan was far too generous with taxpayer money. If so many people are so willing to take advantage, the government is clearly giving too much away. Called the Car Allowance Rebate System (or “CARS,” aren’t the feds clever?) the program allegedly offers owners of “old cars and trucks” either $3,500 or $4,500 toward a “new, more fuel-efficient vehicle.” This in exchange for turning the “old” car over for scrap. Call us old-fashioned, but the program is open to vehicles built in 2001 or before, and an eight-year old vehicle in decent shape never really struck us as either particularly “old” or a “clunker.” Yet dealerships have been flooded with shoppers (we’re sure dealers are thrilled) and Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) reports that about 40,000 vehicles had already been processed under the program with dealers already trying to get another 200,000 trade-ins through the red tape and low funds. The more we witness this program, the more ridiculous it becomes. Photographs from the Associated Press illustrate just how stupid and wasteful — both of decent vehicles and taxpayer dollars — the “Cash for Clunkers” program is. In one photo, a South Carolina man is seen celebrating his trade-in of a 1998 Dodge Ram pickup for a new, “fuel-efficient” … Dodge Ram pickup. The government will hand this motorist $3,500 of your hard-earned tax dollars and ours as a reward for upgrading his fuel mileage from about 15 mpg highway to about 20. Meanwhile, his shiny, white Dodge pickup (the old one) is now federally mandated scrap, though it could be a nice, useful vehicle for someone who is truly driving a “clunker.” In another photo, a shiny compact SUV was pictured dropped via crane or forklift into a dumpster. In yet another, a glimmering red 2001 Dodge Durango — a gas-guzzler but potentially a safe hauler for a family that has no reliable car — was parked in line of vehicles waiting to be destroyed on government order. In the last photo, a close-up shows a note stuck to the engines of every “clunker” being taken in trade by one dealer. It reads: “This engine is from a vehicle that is part of the Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS). It has significant internal damage caused by operating the engine with a sodium silicate solution (liquid glass) instead of oil.” Even if the scrap is being recycled, is this a wise, “green” use of resources? Aren’t we scolded all the time for being a “throwaway society?” The plan all along had conflicting goals. It allegedly was intended to get old, unsafe, and inefficient vehicles off the road. But it was also intended to boost new vehicle sales for failing U.S. manufacturers. What were the Big Three having trouble selling? Their glut of comparatively inefficient heavy trucks and SUVs. By permitting vehicles as new as 2001 to qualify for the program, the government is actually removing thousands of very safe vehicles with modern features — anti-lock brakes, air bags, etc. — from the roads. By allowing rebates for trade-ins that result in pathetic increases in mileage, the rise in overall efficiency of the U.S. vehicle fleet will be minimal. And so that many heavy trucks can be purchased under the program, the fuel-hike requirements for each trade-in are dismal — just a 5 mpg improvement is required for a $3,500 kickback. So this rebate program run amok is accomplishing but one goal — helping U.S. dealers sell more cars, including their inefficient models. Bully for them, we suppose, and for the buyers who can afford to take advantage and will benefit next April from taxpayer generosity to the tune of another $3,500 to $4,500. But the program is bad for used car dealers. It is bad for mechanics who make their living repairing these “clunkers” that are now being destroyed instead. It is bad for the usedpart business, which is watching its future inventory being crushed to smithereens. It is bad for the poor, who might dearly appreciate owning one of the many reasonably good cars that are being crushed instead of resold. And it is one of the most egregious squanderings of resources we’ve ever seen.

You don’t need to read all of this column to get its message. For North Carolinians it is simply this: Food is the new tobacco. Here’s why. We have known all along that using tobacco products was bad for health. But North Carolina people, as a group, resisted government regulations, restrictions on places it could be consumed, taxes, and even educational programs designed to discourage their use. We argued that people should be free to make their own choices about what kinds of products they enjoy for relaxation and pleasure. For a long while we argued, too, that there was not real proof that tobacco was causing the cancers, heart attacks, and strokes that were destroying the quality of life (and killing) smokers at higher rates than non-smokes. We would not admit it, but deep down inside we knew that our beliefs and our arguments in defense of tobacco use had something to do with the great economic benefits tobacco growing and manufacturing were to our state. Now our smoky rhetoric has been blown away. We say out loud what we should have

known all along. Smoking causes bad health. It kills. And it costs the public lots of money in covering the health care expenses of those made sick by their tobacco habits. Over the last few years in North Carolina, most campuses, workD.G. places, and Martin other public Special to places have The Daily Dispatch come to prohibit or severely restrict smoking. Recently, the last hospital joined the trend and prohibited smoking. We no longer argue that the government should not be involved or that it should not limit individual choice when the health impact of a product like tobacco is so great. What does this have to do with food? Read UNC-Chapel Hill professor Barry Popkin’s new book, “The World is Fat,” and I think you will come to the conclusion that our eating habits are destroying our good

health and quality of life in much the same way the habitual use of tobacco does. Increasingly the high caloric liquids and food we consume are driving up our weight dramatically. Our agricultural subsidy policies have made high calorie food relatively cheap compared to the higher costs of the healthier fruits and green vegetables. Commercial food products, fast food outlets, restaurants, and school and college cafeterias increase our problem with their added sugars and syrups, their suppersized large portions, and their pandering to our individual inability to resist. Keeping a healthy weight is an individual challenge. The consequences of not meeting that challenge are clear: higher incidences of diabetes, strokes, heart attacks, and early death. But most of us eat on. We eat and eat and create in ourselves a life of bad health that will require extensive and expensive health treatments that others (taxpayers) will have to cover. So does government have a role? Should it restrict or tax high calorie foods? Should it discourage, rather than

subsidize, the growing of high calorie food products? Should it penalize those of us who won’t eat healthy or reward those of us who do? Popkin says the government has to act. He suggests it start with a tax on high calorie drinks, which he calls “super negatives.” He says that “Juice, soft drinks, fruit drinks, energy drinks, all caloric beverages except skim milk” have little nutricional value other than calories. But their empty calories may add 500 calories to an individual’s daily intake and make the difference, over time, between healthy weight and obesity. For legislators looking for new revenue, the health argument provides the same kind of rationale that first led to a tax on cigarettes. But an additional soft drink tax will be just a start.

The basic truth of government RALEIGH — I think it’s okay to boss people around at the point of a gun. Sound extreme? Well, unless you are a true anarchist, you agree with me because you believe there should be a government. By definition, any government exists for the purpose of carrying out certain tasks through the use of forceful taxation and regulation — that is, by issuing edicts enforceable at the point of a gun. The basic conflict in politics is about the number of those certain tasks. For which tasks is it just to compel your fellow human beings to surrender the fruits of their labor to finance a government program? For which tasks is it just to compel your fellow human beings to follow governmental rules they would not voluntarily set for themselves? If your answers to these questions create a short list, then you and I see eye-to-eye. Whether we call ourselves classical liberals, libertarians, conservatives, constitutionalists, or konk-eared splorks, we essentially believe that government is instituted among human beings to perform only a few basic tasks that can’t be left to voluntary action, such as national defense, the legal protection of individual rights, and certain public goods that, for technical reasons, cannot be effectively priced and delivered through markets. We’re in good company. Most of the Founders of our country had the same view of government. It’s evident throughout the letters, speeches, and official documents of the Founding Era. However, if your answers to these questions about the just

use of force create a long list, then you and I are in opposition. If you think it is just to compel taxpayers to subsidize sports stadiums, convention centers, banks, insurance companies, automakers, medical schools, opera companies, aquatic centers, passenger trains, or any other business venture or nonprofit enterprise, then you and I don’t agree. If you think it is just to compel John your fellow Hood citizens to conform with Special to The Daily Dispatch your preferences — in housing, lifestyle, transportation mode, business relationships, or personal relationships — then you and I don’t agree. That doesn’t mean we can’t be civil. That doesn’t mean we can’t agree to disagree, or perhaps even agree to agree on a particular issue and work together despite our fundamental difference. But the difference remains. Let me offer some replies to objections I can readily foresee. Some might object that I’m just playing word games. Well, I agree that there’s a semantic distinction at play here, but it’s no game. Definitions are critical elements of any meaningful dialogue. Unless we can come to some agreement about the definition of basic terms such as “government,” there is no way we can resolve specific issues of application. If you and I mean totally different things when we say “government,”

What’s your opinion?

“For 30 Years Charles Boyd Chevrolet Has And Always Will Be Your Best Dealer, Your Best Price, Your Best Decision, Guaranteed!”


Better than comparable Toyota Camry or Honda Accord with an amazing 33 MPG, 5 Star Safety with OnStar standard, and North American Car of The Year! “The Malibu is more adept than ever at cruising America’s highways and byways, ...With a quiet and lush interior, and newfound levels of refinement and style, the Malibu is a legitimate contender for best-in-class bragging rights..” - Motor Trend “It’s a first-class, affordable, four-cylinder, front-wheel-drive, midsize family sedan now equipped with a transmission worthy of the name. This is major. This is a breakthrough.” - Washington Post

“The 2009 Malibu looks wonderful, is solidly built and carefully crafted inside and out, offers good fuel economy, drives wonderfully and is priced to sell in serious volumes.” - Kelley Blue Book

Best in Class 32 MPG, 5 Star Safety w/ OnStar Standard, Oustanding Looks and a Great Value!

“Make no mistake, there are no excuses. This is the car the folks at Chevy should have built long ago, but they get serious props for making it happen today.” -- AutoWeek


“Perfect for a family of five, Equinox delivers versatility, handling, safety, roominess and a broad array of features at a low price point - $23,000. If less stress an more fuel economy are on your shopping list for a new vehicle, you may want to experience the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox before you make you final decision.” - “The 2010 Equinox is arguably the best-looking vehicle in the segment and uses some of the most advanced technology under the hood.” – Automobile “With improved fuel efficiency and an attractive look inside and out, it sould win over shoppers in this segment.” -

“It takes the brand and this particular model a huge step forward.” - BusinessWeek



Best in Class with 24 MPG, 5 Star Safety with Onstar Standard, and the option of 8 Passenger Seating!! “So, if you don’t want the stigma of driving a remarkably sensible vehicle -- a minivan -- and you don’t want the coarser manners of a body-on-frame truck-based SUV, you probably do want a vehicle like the Traverse.” -- Road and Track “Tasteful design, high quality materials, and one of the most accommodating interiors in the class.” - Kelly Blue Book

“OK, we’re going to get straight to the point here. The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro rocks. After years of anticipation, Chevy’s new Camaro not only lives up to the hype but also redefines what a muscle car can be.” -- Edmunds

Teams shore up rosters at MLB trade deadline ChiSox get Peavy from Padres By MIKE FITZPATRICK AP Baseball Writer

Adam LaRoche watches a single during Boston’s 6-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles Sunday. The former Brave will return to Atlanta, where he began his career. The Braves traded Casey Kotchman to the Red Sox for Laroche before Friday’s MLB trade deadline.

An old face returns to Atlanta By CHARLES ODUM AP Sports Writer

ATLANTA — The Boston Red Sox traded recently acquired Adam LaRoche to the Atlanta Braves for Casey Kotchman in a swap of first basemen on Friday. The Braves, who rank 23rd in the majors with 91 homers — including only six from Kotchman — hope LaRoche’s power can boost the team’s chances in the NL wild-card race. LaRoche has hit more than 20 homers in each of the last four seasons. Kotchman’s career high was the 14 he hit for the Braves and Angels last season. “We wanted to have a bigger bat,” Braves general manager Frank Wren said. “Adam averages 12 to 15 homers in the second half. We thought that would be a boost to our offense.” Boston general manager Theo Epstein said Kotchman will be a good fit for a part-time role after the Red Sox acquired Victor Martinez, the All-Star slugger, from Cleveland on Friday. “LaRoche did a nice job while he was here,” Epstein said. “With the

addition of Victor Martinez, now there aren’t quite as many at-bats available.” Wren confirmed the Red Sox included approximately $1.5 million in the trade — the difference in the salaries for the remainder of the season for the two players. LaRoche, who can be a free agent after the season, is making $7.05 million. Kotchman is making $2.89 million. “We’re not going to pay any more than we were paying for Casey,” Wren said. Kotchman was traded almost exactly one year after he was acquired by the Braves from the Los Angeles Angels for Mark Teixeira. “You’ve been traded already so you’re a little more used to it,” Kotchman said. “I’m a little surprised but not overwhelmingly surprised.” Kotchman is hitting .282 with six homers and 41 RBIs. He hasn’t committed an error in his two seasons with the Braves but he often hit near the bottom of the lineup. Braves third baseman Chipper Jones said Kotchman “has been awesome for us” and said the Red Sox obtained a top defensive player.

“He has been starting to swing the bat really well and defensively, wow,” Jones said. LaRoche, 29, played in Atlanta from 2004-06. He set career highs with 32 homers, 90 RBIs and a .285 batting average with the Braves in 2006. LaRoche was traded for the second time this month. He was dealt from Pittsburgh to Boston for two minor leaguers on July 22. “He came here a couple days, played a few games and was doing well,” said Boston reliever Manny Delcarman. “We were just getting to know him. Baseball is weird.” Kotchman, 26, said he has no preference for the American League. “Baseball is baseball,” he said. LaRoche is batting .248 with 13 homers and 43 RBIs for Pittsburgh and Boston. He has a career .295 average after the All-Star break, compared with .252 before the break, according to STATS. “I think Adam historically has been a slow starter and an offensive force in the second half,” Wren said.

Schmidt one-hits Braves in 5-0 win By CHARLES ODUM AP Sports Writer

ATLANTA — Jason Schmidt gave up one hit in his longest start in more than two years, Andre Ethier hit a homer and drove in four runs and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves 5-0 on Friday night. Schmidt, Ramon Troncoso, George Sherrill and James McDonald combined on a threehitter. McDonald retired the final six batters. Ethier hit a three-run homer in the fifth off Tommy Hanson (5-2) and added a run-scoring double in the ninth. Schmidt (2-1) walked five and struck out three in six innings, his longest start since going six innings for the Dodgers at San Diego on June 5, 2007. The right-hander made his third start of the season after missing 2008 following surgery on his right shoulder. Sherrill, acquired from Baltimore on Wednesday, struck out the side in the seventh in his debut with the Dodgers. After Troncoso gave up singles to Diory Hernandez and pinchhitter Greg Norton, Sherrill struck out Nate McLouth and Kelly Johnson before walking Chipper Jones

Los Angeles starter Jason Schmidt works in the first inning of Friday’s game against the Atlanta Braves. Schmidt allowed just one hit in six innings’ work. to load the bases. Sherrill got Brian McCann on a called third strike to end the inning. Jones’ third-inning single was the only hit off Schmidt. Hanson gave up eight hits and four runs in six innings to lose his second straight start. Russell Martin and Rafael Furcal reached on fifth-inning singles before scoring on Ethier’s homer.

Ethier leads the Dodgers with his career-best 21 homers. He passed James Loney for the team lead with 65 RBIs. Orlando Hudson walked and scored on Furcal’s single in the seventh, pushing the lead to 4-0. Manny Ramirez was 1 for 4 with two strikeouts on the oneyear anniversary of his trade to Los Angeles from Boston.

Highlighting a flurry of deals finished just before the trade deadline, Jake Peavy was shipped out of San Diego to the Chicago White Sox on Friday while Victor Martinez went from the rebuilding Cleveland Indians to a contender in Boston. Scott RoPeavy len, Jarrod Washburn, Orlando Cabrera and Nick Johnson were other notable players on the move as teams stocked up for the stretch drive. Roy Halladay, however, stayed put. After fielding offers for their coveted ace, the Toronto Blue Jays decided to retain the 2003 AL Cy Young Award winner — at least for now. The biggest surprise of the day was probably Peavy. Sidelined with an injured ankle, he finally agreed to join the White Sox, who landed him with their second pitch of the season.

Locked in a crowded race for the AL Central title, Chicago sent four young pitchers to the Padres: Clayton Richard, Aaron Poreda, Dexter Carter and Adam Russell. The teams barely beat the 4 p.m. EDT deadline to make deals without waivers. “It came together very quickly, probably in the last 30-20 seconds,” White Sox general manager Kenny Williams said. “We were really concerned that it wasn’t going to happen.” In May, the Padres and White Sox agreed to a deal for Peavy, but the 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner turned it down. This time, he agreed to waive his notrade clause and join the AL pennant race. “He never said no, he just said ’not yet,”’ Williams said. The 28-year-old Peavy is 6-6 with a 3.97 ERA in 13 starts with the Padres this season but has been on the disabled list since June 13 with a strained tendon in his right ankle. Williams said the White Sox don’t expect Peavy to pitch until Please see TRADES, page 2B

Catcher Victor Martinez talks with reporters in the Cleveland Indians clubhouse Friday. Martinez was traded to the Boston Red Sox for right-hander Justin Masterson and minor league pitchers Nick Hagadone and Bryan Price.

Red Sox trade with Cleveland for All-Star Victor Martinez By TOM WITHERS AP Sports Writer

CLEVELAND — The Boston Red Sox got the big bat they were looking for, acquiring All-Star slugger Victor Martinez from the Cleveland Indians on Friday. The rebuilding Indians received right-hander Justin Masterson and minor league pitchers Nick Hagadone and Bryan Price. Cleveland’s second major trade in 72 hours — they dealt Cliff to Philadelphia on Wednesday — came shortly before the 4 p.m. EDT deadline to complete deals without waivers. The 30-year-old Martinez has split his time at catcher and first base this season. The switch-hitter is batting .284 with 15 home runs and 67 RBIs. Martinez, who had spent his whole career with Cleveland, fought back tears after being told by general manager Mark Shapiro that been traded. He sat in front of his locker, hugging 4-year-old son Victor Jr. — earlier in the day, the young boy asked his dad, “Are we still an Indian?” “It’s tough,” Martinez said, his voice choked with emotion. “It’s tough when

you know you’re leaving your house and leaving the organization that gave you a chance to play in the big leagues. This organization made me a better ballplayer and a better person. It’s tough but life continues and I have to keep moving on. “This was my home.” Martinez leaves Cleveland a day before the Indians were to hold Victor Martinez Bobblehead Night at Progressive Field in their game against Detroit. Before Friday’s game, workers for a sign company removed banners outside the ballpark with Martinez’s picture on them. Martinez will move right into a pennant race, joining a Red Sox team that is second in the AL East behind the New York Yankees, but leads the wild-card chase. “Everybody knows I play to win,” said Martinez, a three-time All-Star, who entered the season with a .298 career average. “I love this game and I’ll go there and do the same thing. As soon as I cross the line, I’m all about winning.” Martinez’s deal completed a rash of trades by the Please see MARTINEZ, page 3B

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Tyler Hansbrough could miss up to two months with a right shin injury, but the Indiana Pacers believe their first-round draft pick will be healthy enough for the start of the

season. The Pacers did not provide details of the injury Friday other than to say the 6-foot-9 forward is expected to miss six to eight weeks ahead of the season. The NBA regular season

begins Oct. 27. Indiana said Hansbrough hurt the shin last season, his final year at North Carolina. The Pacers took Hansbrough at No. 13 overall in last month’s draft and

signed him to a three-year contract. Hansbrough led the Tar Heels to the national championship last season and finished his career as the ACC’s career scoring leader.

Woods bounces back with 2nd-round 63 By LARRY LAGE AP Sports Writer

GRAND BLANC TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Tiger Woods shot a season-low 63 Friday in the second round of the Buick Open and soared up the leaderboard with his best round in relation to par in four years. Poor putting led to an awful start the previous day in his first tournament since missing the cut at the British Open. “I took advantage of driving on a string again,” he said. “I hit my irons a little better and I made some putts.” In relation to par, it was his best round since he had an 11-under 61 at the 2005 Buick Open. Woods began that tournament with a 71 just as he did Thursday. His last 63 helped him repeat at the 2007 PGA Championship. Woods was 6 under through five holes for the best five-hole start of his career. Michael Letzig (65) had the clubhouse lead at 12 under. “That probably won’t be the lead at the end of the day,” Wood predicted. Woods followed up what he called probably the worst putting day of his career

Tiger Woods eyes his putt on the 7th hole during the second round of the Buick Open at Warwick Hills Friday. with a good one, helping him go into the weekend at 10-under 134. He teed off early Friday morning, hitting his first drive 342 yards straight into the blinding sun. He went on to a birdie-birdieeagle-birdie-birdie tear to remove the remote chance he would miss the cut in consecutive events for the first time as a pro.

Woods had to break 70 on Friday to avoid putting himself in danger of missing the cut, but he said that possibility didn’t enter his mind. “I just wanted to get off to a quick start and take advantage of the holes you’re supposed to take advantage of,” said Woods, who began the second round on the easier back nine at

Warwick Hills. “I birdied a few more than I thought I would.” When Woods got into trouble, his talent got him out of it. At the par-5, 544-yard No. 13 — his fourth hole of the day — Woods’ driver left him behind a huge maple tree. “I could have just pitched out sideways and left myself probably a 7-iron or 8-iron in there,” he said. “I got a little bit aggressive.” It worked out for Woods. He cut a 5-iron around perhaps the biggest tree at Warwick Hills, chipped onto the green from 50 feet and made about a 10-foot putt for birdie. Woods eagled the par-4, 340-yard No. 12, sandwiching a spectacular shot between his pair of birdies on his front nine. His drive left him about 40 yards to the hole and a chip shot bounced on the green and landed in the cup. “It was kind of luck,” he said. “I hit it too hard, but somehow it caught the bottom.” John Daly almost hit rock bottom with an 88, one shot off his career-high 89 that he had last year at the British Open, and ended the tournament 20-over 160.

Palmer opens NC State golf course By JOEDY McCREARY AP Sports Writer

RALEIGH — Arnold Palmer sent a wedge shot about 50 yards down the driving range Friday to open the golf course he designed at North Carolina State. Palmer’s appearance marked the opening of the $12 million Lonnie Poole Golf Course, a par71 layout on N.C. State’s campus that measures 7,358 yards. “Only time will make it much, much better,” Palmer said. “With the maturity of the grasses and the things that are happening with the greens, I can’t tell you how good they are.” Palmer said he wasn’t surprised by the greens, adding, “They’ve come

to where we think they should be.” The course offers views of Raleigh’s skyline and is the first built inside the city’s Interstate 440 beltline since 1948. It will be used by the school’s turfgrass program and the Wolfpack’s men’s and women’s golf teams. “What I would hope is (that) everybody recognizes what this means for the university,” Chancellor Jim Woodward said. “This is a tremendous asset for N.C. State but maybe even more importantly, a tremendous asset for this state and region.” The opening marked the start of a busy few weeks for the course, which in two weeks will play host to the V Foundation’s annual celebrity tournament — one of the

marquee events for the cancer-research group that bears former N.C. State basketball coach Jim Valvano’s nickname. The event, which was held the last two years at Pinehurst after 13 years at a suburban Raleigh course, reunites N.C. State and the name of the coach who led the Wolfpack to an unlikely national title in 1983. “I get goosebumps coming back to N.C. State, having the tournament in Jim’s name at State,” said Nick Valvano, the coach’s brother and the foundation’s chief executive. “This man’s name (Palmer) is a cherry on top of the whole thing.” The 79-year-old Palmer flashed his trademark charisma. Palmer played college golf at Wake Forest in

the 1940s and 1950s, when the school called the city of Wake Forest home before it was moved across the state to Winston-Salem. Jokingly stoking the rivalry between the schools, he feigned reluctance before pressing his middle and ring fingers together with his thumb, forming the Wolfpack’s hand gesture. “In this day and age, to have what North Carolina State will have in this golf course is something that is starting to spread,” Palmer said. “It’s so nice to see this happening here in Raleigh and for the university. You can’t take a thing away from what has been built out there. ... From the standpoint of an architect, I’m very pleased and proud of what’s happened here.”

LaROCHE, from page 1B “Obviously, we’re counting on that and he has enough history that I think we can count on that.” Wren said he talked with the Pirates about a similar trade before LaRoche was sent to Boston. He said talks with the Red Sox moved quickly this week as the

Red Sox “were working on their bigger deal” for Martinez. Wren said LaRoche’s possible free-agent status was not a factor. “I think we made the trade purely to finish out this season and then we’ll see where we are,” Wren said. LaRoche and Kotch-

The Reds also sent right-handed reliever Josh Roenicke and a minor leaguer to the Blue Jays, who included cash to cover part of Rolen’s salary. Batting .320 with eight homers and 43 RBIs, Rolen has one more year left on an eight-year, $90 million deal he signed with St. Louis. Former Cardinals general manager Walt Jocketty made it a

priority to get Rolen. “He will bring a lot to this ballclub that’s been lacking,” said Jocketty, in his second season as the Reds GM. “He brings leadership. He’s a veteran. I think he’ll add a lot to this club. And he’s still playing well. He’s a good RBI man and a Gold Glove at third base.” Detroit acquired Washburn from Seattle for lefthander Luke French and minor leaguer Mauricio Robles, giving the Tigers an experienced lefty for their rotation as they try to hold on to the AL Cen-

tral lead. Washburn, third in the AL with a 2.64 ERA, joins All-Stars Justin Verlander and Edwin Jackson on Detroit’s starting staff. The Minnesota Twins made a move to upgrade at shortstop, acquiring Cabrera and cash from Oakland for minor league infielder Tyler Ladendorf. Johnson went from lastplace Washington to the cost-conscious Marlins, a surprise contender in the NL wild-card race. Florida acquired the first baseman and cash for a pitching prospect, left-hander Aaron Thompson.

Bulls take three of four in Scranton, head home in first Special to the Dispatch

MOOSIC, PA. — Jason Childers nailed down his fifth save in as many outings, as the Bulls won three of four at defending IL Champion Scranton, taking a 3-1 decision on Friday night. Childers entered the game in the eighth with the bases full and one out,

and got Juan Miranda (15 HR 59 RBI) to pop out, and then Yurendell DeCaster, who had hit in 14 straight games, grounded into a fielder's choice. Childers then allowed singles to the first two hitters in the ninth, but struck out Eric Duncan. Ray Sadler then made a diving grab on Doug Bernier's soft line drive to shallow center,

and Ramiro Pena bounced to second to end the game. That made a winner out of Carlos Hernandez (7-6), who allowed just a run on two hits over five innings. Durham scored single tallies in the fourth, fifth and sixth. Rhyne Hughes drove in the tying run with a two-out single in the fourth. Matt Joyce's fifth inning groundout gave

Durham the lead, and Ray Olmedo's single in the sixth added insurance. Hughes, Olmedo and Elliot Johnson each had two hits. Durham is 61-46, and heads home in first place in the South Division after playing 15 of its last 20 on the road. Durham hosts Indianapolis on Saturday, the first of eight straight at home.

Ortiz has two home runs in two games since it was disclosed that he was on the list of more than 100 major leaguers who tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003. John Smoltz (2-4) earned his second victory in seven starts for Boston despite allowing five runs and eight hits in six innings. The 42-year-old was 0-1 with a 7.00 ERA in two previous appearances against Baltimore this season. Jonathan Papelbon worked the ninth for his 27th save. He has converted 23 of 24 career save opportunities against the Orioles. Rays 8, Royals 2 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — David Price allowed one run over seven innings and Carlos Pena hit a three-run homer to lead the Tampa Bay Rays to an 8-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Friday night. Price (4-4) gave up five hits and improved to 4-1 at home this year. Pena’s homer was his 26th this season, but just the third in July. Alberto Callaspo extended his hitting streak to 13 games for Kansas City, which has lost 14 of 17. The Royals are 0-7 against Tampa Bay this season. Pena put the Rays up 3-0 on an opposite-field shot off the left-field pole in the first. The two-out homer came off Sidney Ponson (1-7), who allowed seven runs and eight hits in 4 1-3 innings.

White Sox 10, Yankees 5 CHICAGO (AP) — Carlos Quentin homered and had a go-ahead RBI double and Chris Getz delivered a two-run, basesloaded single Friday night as the White Sox beat the New York Yankees 10-5. The White Sox’s second straight victory over the AL East leaders came hours after they acquired star right-hander Jake Peavy in a trade with the San Diego Padres. Peavy, on the disabled list with an ankle injury, is not expected to pitch until late August. He will join the team Saturday. Chicago broke a 5-5 tie in the fifth on Quentin’s RBI double off David Robertson (1-1). The White Sox added four in the seventh off Alfredo Aceves. Angels 11, Twins 5 (11) MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Howie Kendrick’s RBI single started Los Angeles’ six-run 11th inning and the Angels recorded their major league-leading 34th comeback victory of the season, 11-5 over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night. The Angels, who have come from behind in 13 of their past 18 victories, had six hits and two walks against three Minnesota relievers before making an out in the 11th inning. Kevin Jepsen (3-2) pitched two innings of scoreless relief for the Angels, who improved to 4-3 in extra-inning games this season. Mike Napoli, who had four hits, tied the game 5-5 with a homer in the Angels’ eighth, his fifth homer in 10 games. Bobby Abreu had a homer among three hits and drove in four. Joe Mauer homered and had three hits for the Twins.

MARTINEZ, from page 1B Indians, who have acquired 11 players — nine of them pitchers — in five trades since June 27. Cleveland, which began the weekend 12 games out of first in the AL Central, has slashed nearly $25 million in payroll by trading Lee, Martinez, third baseman Mark DeRosa, reliever Rafael Betancourt and first baseman Ryan Garko. “When you don’t perform or have good results, things are going to happen like this,� Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore said. “It’s start from scratch now.� Martinez will likely share catching duties in Boston with Jason Varitek and can fill in at first base and designated hitter. “What we’re getting in Victor is a middle of the order, switch-hitting batter, who can catch, play first, DH,� Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. “It’s a very valu-

able piece, There are a lot of things to like about Victor. He can help take a little off Tek (Varitek) and we can do a lot to hopefully be able to attack a lot of the better pitching in the league.� The Red Sox did not give up Clay Buchholz, one of their top pitching prospects, for Martinez. But they did part with three quality arms in order to bolster their lineup. The versatile Masterson was Boston’s secondround pick in 2006. He went 3-3 with a 4.50 ERA in 31 appearances, including six starts for the Red Sox this season. The 6-foot-6 righty was a key part of the Red Sox’s run to the playoffs a year ago, going 6-5 with a 3.16 ERA in 36 games after being called up from the minors. Shapiro said Masterson will be recalled on Saturday and will immediately join the starting rotation.

Holliday leads Cards over Astros; Marlins down Cubs Cardinals 4, Astros 3 ST. LOUIS (AP) — Matt Holliday had four hits for the second time in his eight games with St. Louis. Pinch-hitter Matt Kata’s RBI single put Houston ahead in the top of the eighth, before the Cardinals rallied for two runs in the bottom half. Holliday’s RBI double off Alberto Arias (2-1) tied it. He advanced to third on a wild pitch and Ryan Ludwick was intentionally walked before Rick Ankiel’s opposite-field hit helped the Cardinals win for the fourth time in five games. Trever Miller (3-0) got the last out of eighth and Ryan Franklin closed it for his 24th save. Holliday is batting .586 (17 for 29) with a homer and eight RBIs since joining the Cardinals in a trade from Oakland.

Hope for the busy family

Airport chapels now offering a haven to visitors of diverse faiths

Life has changed, but not as we hoped. It was predicted at the 1962 World’s Fair in Seattle that by the year 2001, we’d be working shorter hours; have more time for art, sports and hobbies; and work only 24 hours a week! It is 2009 and we work longer hours, have less free time and more stress. Wouldn’t it be great if we could rewind to simpler times? In his book, Little House on the Freeway, Tim Kimmel replies: “Life will never again be like it was when we lived in our quiet little houses on the prairie. We all Rev. Abidan live too close Shah to the freeway

ATLANTA (AP) — Ordained a United Methodist minister, the Rev. Chester Cook has now become a jack of all faiths. On a recent day, Cook welcomed a Christian-oriented Army chaplain, a Muslim family and a Buddhist ticket agent to his interfaith chapel at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport — a snapshot of the grab bag of faithful who make a stop in the chapel. Across the country, chapels designed to offer passengers refuge and reflection in bustling airports are making changes: Removing denomination-specific decor, adding special accommodations and hosting services geared to accommodate an increasingly diverse group of travelers flying with faith. In Atlanta, it means a simple stainedglass window marking the entrance to the 1,040-square-foot chapel on the third floor. Inside there’s room for 30, and a library stocking everything from Gideon Bibles to AP Photo/John Bazemore Jewish mystical texts.

John A. Jamnicky, former chaplain each day. of Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport The chapel remains unadorned to mainand a 20-year veteran of travel ministry. tain its interfaith feel. He said airport chapels date back to the “We try to help others be respectful in 1940s when the explosion of commercial honoring the way someone else may practice aviation, combined with a surplus of military their faith,” said Cook, adding that Christchaplains home from World War II, gave mas decorations are kept to a minimum. church leaders the idea to mix faith with On a recent Wednesday, baggage checker flying.

to back away Clearview from its reality. Baptist Together we enjoy all of the benefits and conveniences of modern living. And together we suffer the inevitable consequences.” Hurried living has taken its toll on our entire society. It’s greatest impact has been felt in the family. A family is a network of relationships that requires time and patience. Both are hard to come by in the average home today. Instead of being a refuge, many homes feel more like a refugee camp. In some homes arguments and blame casting have become a daily habit. In other homes the inmates avoid each other and live as angry neighbors. Sadly, the kids are not immune to this commotion and turmoil. What has happened? Have we selfishly sacrificed our families on the altar of success? Maybe some, but not all. Ask most people why they work so hard and they will reply that they are doing it for their family. In a crazy economy they are simply trying to stay afloat, plan ahead and give their loved ones the best they possibly can. That’s not a sin. We have been programmed by our Creator to provide for those in our care. Furthermore, the Bible never condemns success or hard work. How then can the busy and not so busy families make it in today’s world? First, we need to realize that every family will face difficult seasons in life. Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 says: “To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven . . . A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted.” The times of planting are naturally busier than the times of plucking. It is natural to face those strenuous times of late work hours and loss of job. Believe it or not, your parents, grandparents and great-grandparents faced them too. The answer is not in bailing out or blaming one another. Second, forgiveness should be freely given. When Peter asked Jesus if seven times was enough to forgive someone, Jesus replied: “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven” (Matthew 18:22). Pent up bitterness and anger is the root cause of many broken homes. Third, the antidote to all our cares, worries and fears is life of faith. Faith reminds us that God is in control. It assures us that “all things work together for good to those who love God.” It helps us to visualize the “things unseen.” The only way to obtain such faith is to be built upon Christ. In Matthew 7:24-25, Jesus said, “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock; and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.” Things work out in a strange and wonderful way when Christ and his word are at the center of our lives.

more diverse, Chicago’s O’Hare and Midway airports now advertise prayer rugs and special Muslim facilities. Chapels created at airports in Norfolk, Va., and Tulsa, Okla., in the last decade have been interfaith. And in Cleveland, airport officials have discussed toning down the Catholic orientation of the airport’s ornate chapel. “It’s responding to the needs that are present in our society and among travelers, “ Jamnicky said. Airports also are looking to conserve space, said the Rev. Michael Zaniolo, chaplain at Chicago’s O’Hare and Midway airports, and president of the National Conference of Catholic Airport Chaplains. In the past, some airports have had multiple chapels to accommodate various faiths. “Instead of having four or five very small chapels, we’ve got one nice-sized chapel,” he said, referring to chapels across the country. “And it’s available for everyone.” The airport chapel in Atlanta offers a onesize-fits-all religious experience. A silhouette of a person kneeling is the only prominent icon in the chapel. Spare rosaries, yarmulkes, prayer shawls and a Catholic Mass kit are tucked away for use as needed. A large compass on the chapel floor, meanwhile, was created with multiple faiths in mind. “We also looked at the direction of the chapel so that the north, south, east and west could all be clearly understood without using any religious symbols,” Cook said, explaining that Jews, Muslims and members of other faiths face east for prayer. Maher Subeh, wife Ilham and children Bashar, 14, Zayd,12, and Noor, 9, recently slipped off their sneakers and readied for prayer. Each folded their legs beneath them and solemnly bowed on the large chapel mat for a few moments, before grabbing their luggage for a flight back to Los Angeles. The Muslim family rarely sees chapels in American airports and was glad to have an alternative to praying in a corner of the crowded terminal among onlookers. “Sometimes they don’t know what you’re doing,” said Maher Subeh, adding that after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks the ritual gained uncomfortable attention. Cook smiled at the family as they trundled out, and a ticket agent who frequents the chapel to meditate slipped in.

Now arrange the circled letters to form the surprise answer, as suggested by the above cartoon.

Print answer here: (Answers Monday) LUNGE KNIGHT AIRWAY Jumbles: GUILE Answer: When the sailors retrieved the ship’s bell, it was — “RINGING” WET


Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). It might seem to others that you have more requests, needs and specifications than usual. That’s because you are customizing your experience to suit your needs and wishes — as you should! TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be bored unless you figure out early in the day what’s in it for you. So be a little selfish. Sift through your hopes, dreams and aspirations and see how they match up with what’s going on around you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It is natural to view the world based on what you want it to be and to notice all the ways in which it falls short. Today, you view things how they actually are and enjoy them all the more. CANCER (June 22-July 22). With too much on your plate, you simply can’t concentrate on doing what you really want to do. Make new rules that will help you to focus your energy on what’s most important to you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Worry can only weaken you, so disallow it for the day. Do whatever you have to do to stay on the sunny side. Adding a favored activity to your agenda may be all it takes to help you stay in a fantastic mood. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Center your creative mind around gaining publicity for your business, cause or project. Ideas are plentiful and out of the dozens you come up with, you’ll have one or two truly great ones.









Unscramble these four Jumbles, one letter to each square, to form four ordinary words.



LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your recent “kick” is on the decline. Maybe it’s a food you were craving for the last few weeks that now seems less appealing or a fun activity that has gotten quickly stale. Time for some new influences! SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be dealing with people who are different from your usual group. You sort out who’s who and categorize the personalities to the best of your ability. You quickly figure out what you have to do to make things work. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You can command the weather all you want, but it’s still going to do its own thing. Your best bet is to be prepared for any scenario and keep a flexible attitude. Your mantra: Resistance is futile. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be in the midst of negotiation and change, so it’s important to remember: No one has more or less power than you. You are on equal footing with your fellows. Act only when you feel calm and confident. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Someone in your family might not deserve your faith, but make the leap anyway. Err on the side of generosity and good will. It will be a positive move for you that you will never regret. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have a habit of giving more than required for the situation at hand — and what a lovely habit that is. Keep going in this manner and you may very well become famous for your big-spirited ways.
