State tells Vance Schools to cut nearly $1.146 million; out of exactly how much, nobody yet knows

Davis only council member to vote against demand for home-ownership By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer

Parishioners of Union Chapel United Methodist Church take part on Sunday in the first service held in a new building, the construction of which was made necessary by an Aug. 10, 2007 fire that almost totally consumed the original church sanctuary, which dated to 1829.

Union Chapel congregation holds first service in new church; original 1829 building burned to the ground nearly two years ago to the day By AL WHELESS Daily Dispatch Writer

Betty and Jerry Stanton are witnesses to the past and the future of Union Chapel United Methodist Church. They were among nearly 150 people who sat down Sunday morning on gleaming, wooden pews and extra chairs that had to be set out for the first service inside the brightly lit new sanctuary which replaces the larger one destroyed by fire two years ago. The first sermon — delivered by the church’s new pastor, Rev. Dennis Gossett — was about renewal and the potential held by the reconstruction. “When I look at this new sanctuary, I see a seed that has been planted,” he said. “It is my goal for this church that we receive 100 new souls this year, Gossett vowed. “Welcome home!” he

The Rev. Dennis Gossett preaches his first sermon Sunday inside the new Union Chapel United Methodist Church. “Welcome home!” he told the congregation, who had waited two years for construction after their original church was destroyed by fire. said to the colorful audience clad in an array of attire from suits and dresses to shorts or blue jeans. In one of several prayers, the pastor told God: “Lord, it’s just a wonderful thing. You said that if we had the faith of a mustard seed, we could move a mountain. Father, God, You have moved our mountain!”

The front page of the bulletin for the occasion displayed a color photo of a tiny green seedling sitting in planting soil held in a gardener’s cupped and grimy hands. The first hymn to be sung together by the congregation and the choir wearing blueand-white robes was “How Great Thou Art.”

Another special service — set for Aug. 23 at 11 a.m. — will focus on rededication. There will be an open house from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Several former pastors expected to show up that day include Rob Hammond, who guided the congregation through many of the rebuilding days. Invited to preside over the ceremony is Gray Southern, Durham District superintendent for the United Methodist Church. On Sunday morning, someone asked the Stantons for their opinions of the $600,000 building that had risen from the ashes since the ground-breaking last November, as a result of many contributions. “It’s just as pretty as it can be,” Betty said. The beaming, 74-year-old Kittrell resident kept looking around the sanctuary as if her eyes were 35-millimeter cameras. Please see CHAPEL, page 3A

House drops jet purchase plan WASHINGTON (AP) — House Democratic leaders said Monday that they will not force the Pentagon to buy four new passenger jets used to ferry senior government officials. Democrats have been criticized for adding $330 million to the Air Force’s 2010 budget to buy the jets even though the Pentagon didn’t request the money. Two of the planes would be the C-37 — the military equivalent to the fancy

Fuzzy math

Beacon Light compliance draws one step closer

The Henderson City Council on Monday evening approved documents drawn up to get the shabby former Beacon Light apartment complex into compliance with municipal housing codes. The council’s actions were unanimous, except for a document affirming a home-ownership provision, which received a lone dissenting vote from Mayor Pro Tem Lonnie Davis. City Manager Ray Griffin is now authorized to work with the property owner, Sharif Abdelhalim, to establish a “reasonable timetable” to bring the 318 Boddie St. location into code compliance as well as a conversion to home ownership. Griffin said Abdelhalim will have to present a letter of credit to the city in an amount of 1 1/2 times the amount of the city’s estimate to demolish and clear the property. Moving forward with a demolition would be stopped to give Abdelhalim a chance to comply, but if Abdelhalim does not comply, then City Code Compliance Director Corey Williams will be authorized to take the letter of credit and demolish the property. The terms provide a 45day window to work out a time schedule agreement. City Attorney John Zollicoffer said there would be an additional 30 days for Abdelhalim to produce the letter of credit. Additionally, the terms will seek to establish a partnership with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regarding both the code enforcement and the home ownership provision. And if Abdelhalim does not come into compliance, Mayor Pete O’Geary and Griffin are authorized to seek a portion of Abdelhalim’s $1.29 million deposit with HUD to help pay for demolition and cleanup. Griffin said that he and Williams have talked with HUD and have concluded that, if the city is going to be able to utilize the specifics, then the city will need to go “straight to the top,” a reference to Henderson’s federal representatives. The terms also call for the city to seek any fire insurance proceeds Abdelhalim

John Murtha, a Pennsylvania Democrat chairman of the panel that approved the additional spending.

X, minus $1,145,863, equals … what, exactly? It’s the incomplete equation the State Department of Public Instruction handed sometime Monday to Superintendent Norman Shearin of Vance County Schools. Shearin, in turn, told the Board of Education Monday night that $1,145,863 is the amount Shearin the school system is supposed to cut from its initial allotment from the State for FY 20092010. The trouble is that X, Shearin explained, represents the initial allotment of funds for Vance County Schools, a figure that DPI has yet to disclose. In the meantime, Shearin said, he and his staff have so far identified about $800,000 worth of reductions that could be applied toward the known figure, that is, the amount needing to be cut from whatever the allotment is that the state hands down. The overall reduction in discretionary funds for all of the public school systems in the State is $225 million. Also Monday night, Shearin said the state plans to reduce funding for North Carolina’s public school systems by a total of $10 million for clerical personnel, custodians and substitutes Especially as far as substitute teachers are concerned, the reduction has the potential to significantly “hurt” the local school system, but the degree has yet to be determined, the superintendent added. The Department of Public Instruction informed Shearin that the total cut in State funds for bus transportation for all of the public school systems in North Carolina is $15 million. For miscellaneous projects, the State funds reduction will total $4.6 million for all of the public school systems. A total of 200 literary coaches throughout the public school systems in the State will be eliminated, according to DPI. Shearin said efforts will be made to find other positions in Vance County Schools for any literary coaches that are affected. At its meeting Monday night, the School Board went along with the Finance Committee’s recommendations to accept Maola Milk’s low bid of $455,290.50 to supply milk and Merita Baking Company’s low bid of $67,725 to supply bread.

Part rock, part revival singing, the musical brings parables from the gospel of Matthew to life through pantomime, vaudeville and soft-shoe dancing. “This is an extremely talented cast,” said Chris Bagley, minister of music at Oxford United Methodist Church. “The audience will not be disappointed.” Jesus will be played by Kyle Perren, who played opposite Evan Rachel Wood in “Romeo and Juliet” for Theatre in the Park this spring. Perren has been active in the Raleigh theater scene for several years. Shawn Rhodes will play Judas. Rhodes has been in several local regional productions and recently played Benedick

BEACON, from page one

She and her husband both heard music streaming out of a new piano given to the church. It is supposed to soon be joined up-front by a new organ that will get there the same way. On Aug. 10 of 2007, Betty had stood in Union Chapel’s cemetery across Raleigh Road to watch in horror as a fast-moving blaze triggered by lightning devoured four Sunday School classrooms and the sanctuary built in 1829 that she and Jerry had gotten married in nearly 54 years ago. “It’s a long time with the same man, isn’t it?” she asked, grinning. “Time to get another one.” The mirth faded from her eyes as her thoughts returned to what had happened to the community landmark and most of its furnishings. Some of them were original, stained-glass windows worth hundreds of thousands of dollars that had been made in France and had hung in the sanctuary. About a dozen of the same-type windows that had decorated the old classrooms were saved from the fire. They were installed around the successive spaces after what had been wooden frames were replaced with ones made of aluminum. Other survivors include a charred Bible snatched from the pulpit moments before it disintegrated and a brass cross that might owe its twisted shape to a bolt of electricity. The destruction occurred on a Friday afternoon in

may have received to pay for demolition and cleanup. Attorney Karlene Turrentine maintained that her client, Abdelhalim, is prepared to go forward with the home ownership provision and that he is willing fix all that needs to be fixed. Abdelhalim’s real estate agent, Vance County Commissioner Terry Garrison, said that, while the goal of home ownership was appropriate when Abdelhalim bought the property in a 2007 foreclosure sale, the situation is different since the burst of the nationwide housing bubble. Garrison said that efforts were made to market the property for more than a year and a half at $1.2 million and that there were interested persons from California to Florida to Vermont. But, once they learned of the home ownership provision, they dropped out. The HUD-sponsored low-income complex, which dates to 1973, was closed in 2006 at the request of the previous council after the property had become notorious for crime and unsanitary conditions. The previous council wanted Beacon Light

100-degree weather that combined with the intense heat of burning 178-year-old wood to overcome four fire fighters who miraculously only required treatment at the scene. “My neighbor called and said the church was on fire,” Betty recalled Sunday. “When I got there, it (the building) was only smoking at the top (of the roof) in the east corner. I didn’t think it would burn all the way down.” Somewhere between the beginning and the end, she saw the steeple with its cross on top fall back into the fire. “It was terrible,” Betty confided, nearly whispering. “It was horrible.” During an interview while the flames were spreading, Betty had expressed hope that the firefighters who came from at least 10 volunteer departments would be able to save the long, adjacent education building. “Then we can have church until we can build another one, which I’m sure we will,” she added at the time. Her wish and her prediction both came true. As for Jerry’s comments about his new surroundings, he only said, “It’s okay.” “You’re a man of few words, aren’t you?” the visitor asked the lifelong member. His wife had joined Union Chapel the day of their wedding. “Yep.” Contact the writer at

redeveloped with singlefamily homes. The council majority in June postponed going ahead with a demolition so the city could hear from a potential buyer, Twin City, which is a Greensboro real estate management firms. Councilman Garry Daeke backed Williams and cast the lone vote against holding off the demolition action. Twin City representatives wanted to have rental units on the property. During a Wednesday meeting of the council’s Land Planning and Development Committee in which six of the eight council members were present, Twin City’s proposal was denied. Terms were then spelled out ordering demolition of the units down to a green field, but making clear the city would be willing to work with Abdelhalim. Garrison on Monday said that, while Abdelhalim is willing to pursue having home ownership on the property, “Personally, it’s going to be a huge, huge risk on his part or anybody’s part, to do that.” Contact the writer at bwest@

Mexican cartels smuggle oil to U.S. By MARTHA MENDOZA Associated Press Writer

MEXICO CITY — U.S. refineries bought millions of dollars worth of oil stolen from Mexican government pipelines and smuggled across the border, the U.S. Justice Department told The Associated Press — illegal operations now led by Mexican drug cartels expanding their reach. Criminals — mostly drug gangs — tap remote pipelines, sometimes building pipelines of their own, to siphon off hundreds of millions of dollars worth of oil each year, the Mexican oil monopoly said. At least one U.S. oil executive has pleaded guilty to conspiracy in such a deal. On Tuesday, the U.S. Homeland Security department is scheduled to return $2.4 million to Mexico’s tax

administration, the first batch of money seized during a binational investigation into smuggled oil that authorities expect to lead to more arrests and seizures. “The United States is working with the Mexican government on the theft of oil,� said Nancy Herrera, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s office in Houston. “It’s an ongoing investigation, with one indictment so far.� In that case, Donald Schroeder, president of Houston-based Trammo Petroleum, is scheduled to be sentenced in December after pleading guilty in May. In a $2 million scheme, Herrera said, Schroeder purchased stolen Mexican oil that had been brought across the border in trucks and barges and sold it to various U.S. refineries,

which she did not identify. Trammo’s tiny firm profited about $150,000 in the scheme, she said. Schroeder’s attorneys said in an e-mail that neither they nor their client would respond to AP’s requests for comment. Bill Holbrook, spokesman for the National Petrochemical & Refiners Association, said a single indictment against a small company should not be used to smear the reputation of the entire U.S. oil industry, “and is not indicative of how domestic refiners operate.� But in Mexico, federal police commissioner Rodrigo Esparza said the Zetas, a fierce drug gang aligned with the Gulf cartel, used false import documents to smuggle at least $46 million worth of oil in tankers to unnamed U.S. refineries.

GM pulls out of mercury partnership By KEN THOMAS Associated Press Writer

lights and antilock brakes in vehicles built in the 1980s and 1990s. More than half of them are in GM vehicles built before 2000. Mercury released into the air can accumulate in plants, fish and humans. Children and fetuses are vulnerable to the effects of the toxic metal, which can damage the development of the nervous system. The auto industry partnership, called the End of

Life Vehicle Solutions, or ELVS, was created in 2005 to prevent mercury emissions from being released into the environment when vehicles are crushed and shredded. It works closely with the National Vehicle Mercury Switch Recovery Program, which the Environmental Protection Agency helped form with automakers, the steel industry and environmentalists in 2006.

WASHINGTON — General Motors has quit working with a partnership that collects toxic parts from scrapped automobiles, jeopardizing an effort to prevent mercury pollution just as hundreds of thousands of clunkers are headed to recyclers. Participants in the environmental program told The Associated Press the timing of GM’s departure could hurt their work. The government’s “cash-for-clunkersâ€? 1020 S.

Daily Meditation Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore. Psalm 133

Our Opinion

Health care debate: Shouts and promises, minus facts The volume is rising in the American health care debate, but volume is no indication of fact or honesty. And neither side has a monopoly on lies or distortions. Republicans shout down “Obama Care” by making wild accusations, such as claims that a “death panel” will be seated to determine which seniors get life-saving care and accusations that seniors will be forced to undergo counseling on “end of life” options, including ludicrous suggestions that the sessions might amount to state-advocated euthanasia. Meanwhile, Democrats demonize both Republicans — not all of whom are off their rockers, nor necessarily wrong for opposing government health care — and the insurance industry, as well. A recent ad by the Democratic National Committee claims that President Obama’s health care plan “will end unfair insurance practices like denying coverage for a pre-existing condition, outrageous out-of-pocket expenses, and dropping coverage when you get too sick.” For starters, why is it “unfair” for an insurance company to deny coverage of pre-existing conditions? If health insurance providers will be forced to insure us against illnesses we already have, should auto insurance companies also be required to fix the car you already wrecked before you bought a policy? As for dropping coverage when an insured party “gets too sick,” we’ve always had issues with insurance companies that love to collect our premiums, but hate to pay out benefits. Which is just about every insurance company we’ve ever encountered. Of course, even some advocates for the Obama health care plan admit that the government — saddled with the burden of insuring everyone — won’t always be able to match the level of service many Americans have come to expect from their health care plans, and in some cases will likely have to deny treatments as being too expensive. So what’s the difference, really? And if you think Americans’ out-ofpocket health care expenses are outrageous now, wait until we as taxpayers are footing the bill for everybody’s coverage, not just paying for our own families. Of course, exactly how much this is all going to cost and how we’re going to pay for it can’t yet be explained by the Democrats, who seem to want us to pass something first and then worry later about such trivial matters as affordability. There’s plenty of reason to oppose the nationalized health care plan as Obama and congressional Democrats have advanced it. Republicans don’t need to lie or distort the truth to stir opposition, and they should focus on the facts. As for the Democrats, a few more of those pesky facts would be appreciated.

Quotable “So, what you have is a lot of helicopters. You’ve got the sightseeing tours. You have police helicopters. You have the weekend warriors who fly up and down the river. All these airplanes are flying 1,000 feet or lower, and a lot of the pilots are up there to see the sights, so they may not be seeing and avoiding things as they should be.” — Justin Green, aviation attorney and former military pilot, responding to calls for more regulation of the air corridor over the Hudson River after New York city’s worst air disaster in eight years.

It isn’t polite, it’s just democracy I have no illusions about those protesters at recent town hall meetings on health care. Some are fueled by angry conservative groups. Some are hopped up on radio hosts’ rants and ravings. Some are Barack Obama haters. Some use one piece of wrong information to smear an entire event. And some — maybe even most — just think the whole idea of government health care stinks. But all of them — all of them — have the right to be there, and the right to their point of view. Liberal-minded thinkers who regularly speak up for the poor and underprivileged cannot suddenly yank the rug when it comes to free speech Mitch for others. Albom No matter what I

think of national health Tribune Media care — no matter what Services you think, either — it is an issue that affects everyone, and everyone should have the same right to talk, argue or shout about it. The fact that some are doing so in an impolite, abrasive way is unfortunate. But then, there is precedent. Let’s be honest. Those of us who grew up in the 1960s took great pride in storming events and yelling slogans. We didn’t care who we interrupted. We were, in our minds, right and proud and arguing for our beliefs. And we look back on that era now with a certain pride. We were engaged. We were involved. We gave a damn. Well, some of us are the same people now offended by critics shouting “Socialism!” or “Kill the bill!” at these town hall meetings. We chide the protesters for lacking all the facts or only looking out for their small group’s interests. But ask yourself, did we always have all

the information when we did the shouting? Not really. Did we always read all the fine print? Probably not. We had our basic core beliefs (Stop the war! Save the environment! More rights for women!) and we fought for them whenever we perceived an enemy. Well, like it or not, people perceive an enemy when they hear about a government health care plan. Especially one so complex, confusing and undercooked that no one can really say what it will or won’t allow, or who will or won’t pay for it. And so they yell. And if they are yelling incorrect facts, it is the burden of those hosting these events (usually Democratic lawmakers) to correct them. And if they are yelling they hate it, they don’t want it — well, what’s wrong with that? Now, I know some of these protesters are nudged there by dubiously named groups like Americans for Prosperity, which sounds harmless enough, until you check and see the group’s leader once organized for Enron and worked with disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff. And I know some people just want to see Obama fail, and destroying his health care baby would be a good first step. But that’s what America is. That’s what town halls are for. The only problem I have is when people won’t let others speak

or only come to disrupt. That’s not right. That’s not democracy. But the rest is. If you feel other people are ill informed, take the time to try to correct them. If you feel others are shouting to bring down a cause, shout to bring it up. But I would rather live in a place where people questioned what their government proposed rather than swallowing it blindly — especially a government whose members guard our tax money while taking bribes, shout morality and then get caught with their pants down, or lecture businessmen about private planes and then order a bunch for themselves. What did Democrats expect with a bill like this? Roses and hosannas? Many who supported Obama’s campaign promises of health care for everyone wouldn’t have done so if they read how he now plans to pay for it and administer it. It may not be pretty, but shouting and confrontations are part of this country and have been from the start. More manners would be better. But silence would be worse.

Rationed health care already here “Rationing” is one of the scariest words in the current health care debate. It conjures up apocalyptic nightmare images from “Soylent Green,” the sci-fi thriller about a future in which the old and weak are quietly lured into early extinction for the sake of future generations. What the scaremongers don’t like to talk about is how much our private insurers ration now — mostly for the sake of their own profits. They’re clever enough to avoid using the R-word. They use other words, like “Read the fine print on your policy.” My friend Sarah Wildman learned the hard way. She’s the new mom with what she calls a “$20,000 baby.” That’s how much she and her husband had to pay out of their own pockets after her insurer decided her baby was a “preexisting condition.” Self-employed, Sarah and her husband fall into the individual insurance market, which the American Medical Association estimates to be as high as 27 million people. Falling between the fully covered and the uncovered, their numbers have grown faster as thousands of Americans lose their job-based insurance every day. Some of them are women who discover the hard way, as Sarah did, that if you bought maternity coverage after the pregnancy began, the fetus is viewed as an uncovered “preexisting condition.”

The Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 requires employers with more than 15 workers to include maternity benefits in their insurance packages. But only 14 states require maternity coverage in policies sold on the individual Clarence market, according to Page the Kaiser Tribune Media Family Services Foundation. And a report last fall by the National Women’s Law Center found only 12 percent of 3,500 individual insurance policies included comprehensive maternity coverage. Another 20 percent offered it with a rider that cost as much as $1,100 a month. Others required a two-year waiting period. Fortunately Sarah’s story had a happy ending. She’s a freelance writer for magazines like The New Republic, The New York Times, The American Prospect and the online publication Slate. When she told the company’s press rep she was going to write about their “crappy” maternity policy, “I got kicked up the food chain.” In the end, she reports, she was able to get 90 percent of her hospital costs paid by the company, which also promised

to adjust claims paid to some similarly situated women. After she wrote about her horror story in Double XX, a woman-oriented Slate spinoff, she heard from numerous fellow sufferers, some with hospital bills bigger than hers. Last Thursday she testified before the House Joint Economic Committee, which released a report that found women more economically vulnerable than men to high medical costs and related bankruptcy. She also has received the inevitable scolding in today’s heated blogosphere from opponents of national health insurance reform. It’s her own fault, some said; she should have read the fine print. Right. As if everybody reads the fine print on their insurance policies — and understands it. And she hears the fears of those who suspect national reform will lead to government rationing of health care. I’m old enough to remember how similar fears were vented when Medicare was born in the 1960s. It is now so popular that President Obama and others have heard satisfied, if a little confused, constituents say, “Keep your government hands off my Medicare,” even though Medicare is a federal program. Left unsaid by those who raise fears of rationing by any “government-run” or government-related health care is how much rationing the insurance industry does now. For decades, experts writing in the New England Journal

of Medicine and elsewhere have concluded that we do “ration” health care. We just do it through gross disparities in race, sex, age, regions, income and education. And, although Sarah’s insurer may deny it, we also ration it to those who are lucky enough to have access to the big soapbox that she happened to have. If anything, social conservatives should be on her side. By penalizing mothers in this way, the private insurance industry throws more barriers in the way of parents and prospective parents than the government does. Under pressure, the private insurance industry has come to the table. A spokesman for the insurance industry recently responded to congressional criticism by listing concessions that the industry has offered as alternatives to a publicly funded option. The industry has proposed “guaranteed coverage for preexisting conditions, discontinuing rating based on a person’s health status or gender, and a personal coverage requirement to get everyone into the system,” said Robert Zirkelbach, spokesman for America’s Health Insurance Plans. Sounds great. But why wait? Insurers don’t need the government’s permission to reform themselves. Just do it.

DEAR ABBY: I have recently met a woman I really connect with, but I have a problem with settling down. I have always had difficulty restricting myself to one person when I’m seriously dating. I want to change so my lifestyle won’t come back and bite me in the butt — but I’m not sure what to do. What I’m asking is, what do you suggest for someone like me to get comfortable with the idea of settling down so that I won’t be destinedclient for failure? — UNSURE IN RICHMOND, VA. DEAR UNSURE: Slow down. You may have been dating the wrong women. When

DEAR ABBY: My father, who is in bad health, recently announced that he would like to be cremated and buried at the foot of my mother’s grave. My birth mother died 28 years ago when I was 2, after they had been married only three years. Dad married my stepmother when I was 8. I feel he should be buried with the wife he’s been with for 22 years. She is the one who has seen him through the worst times in his life, his heart attack and stroke. My stepmother seems to have no negative feelings about it. Am I wrong for thinking that a husband and wife should lie side-by-side when their time comes — with a single headstone with their names and dates of birth/ death/marriage? Or is there some tradition I don’t know about that he should be buried with his first wife? — ENQUIRING IN CLARKSTON, WASH. DEAR ENQUIRING: Your stepmother is realistic and unsentimental. She knows your father was married before, and they may have discussed this between the two of them. Perhaps she feels that because your father prefers to be interred with your mother, that’s where he belongs. Your stepmother had him during the most important years — while he was living and breathing. And who knows? She may marry again, so think positively.



two people are truly compatible, there is less temptation to look for other company. Take things slowly and get to know the lady you’re currently dating. If she qualifies in all the areas you think are important and you still find yourself looking around for something in addition, then you may have a problem and should talk to a therapist because no one woman can ever completely satisfy a man who craves variety.


DEAR ABBY: My 18-yearold sister, “Cheryl,” left home abruptly a week ago. She suddenly stopped taking all her medications, shut off her cell phone and left town with her underage boyfriend. She is a delightful person who also happens to be diabetic, asthmatic and bipolar. Mom received one phone call (from a landline) mentioning that she “might” be heading toward the East Coast. I consider my sister dangerous to herself and others because she has a history of reckless violence when she’s off her meds. My question is, how can you find someone who doesn’t Dear want to be found Abby when they Universal Press NEED to be Syndicate found? — HEARTBROKEN SISTER IN INDIANA DEAR SISTER: If you think YOU are worried, what about the parents of the underage boy? Your next step should be to contact them and also your mother, so that all of you can notify the police and report them missing. And when you do, be sure to inform them that your sister has several conditions that require medications, that she’s off all of them and could be a danger to herself and the young man. Then cross your fingers.

N.C. House gives OK for transit tax plan RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina legislators have given final approval for a plan that would pour millions of dollars in new taxes and fees into public transit. The state House voted 7340 Monday night on legislation raising sales taxes and vehicle registration fees in the state’s second- and third-

largest metro areas by more than $150 million a year. The effort to pump more money into an alternative to cars would allow Wake, Orange, Durham, Guilford and Forsyth counties to collect a half-cent sales tax. Other counties could raise the sales tax by a quartercent for public transit. Authorities could also hike the local portion of the tax on vehicle registrations.

Tiger to be fined for criticism of official By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

Tiger Woods, left, shakes hands with playing partner Padraig Harrington after the final round of the Bridgestone Invitational Sunday. Woods finished at 12-under par to beat Harrington and Robert Allenby by four shots.

CHASKA, Minn. — Tiger Woods will be fined by the PGA Tour for his public criticism of a rules official after winning the Bridgestone Invitational, a tour official said Monday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the tour does not publicize fines. Woods was bothered after his four-shot victory Sunday because he and Padraig Harrington were put on the clock at the par-5 16th.

He said that caused Harrington to rush three difficult shots, leading to triple bogey. European Tour chief referee John Paramor told Woods and Harrington they were being timed. Woods said he told Harrington after it was over, “I’m sorry that John got in the way of a great battle.” Paramor said the final pairing was well behind most of the back nine, but officials gave them time to catch up. They were still 17 minutes out of position on the 16th tee, when they were put on

the clock. Woods hooked his tee shot, punched out to 178 yards and hit an 8-iron that stopped a foot from the hole for birdie. From the right trees, Harrington hit a 5-iron to the edge of a bunker, went over the green, then hit a flop shot too hard and into the water. The fourshot swing took the drama from one of the most compelling final rounds of the year. “I don’t think that Paddy would have hit the pitch shot that way

NEW YORK — Alex Rios showed up at Yankee Stadium and saw his name in the starting lineup Monday night. He left the ballpark a few hours later, on his way to join the White Sox and a pennant race. The two-time All-Star was claimed off waivers by Chicago and learned the news about 30 minutes before the first pitch between the Blue Jays and New York Yankees. Rios The White Sox assume his entire huge contract while Toronto receives no compensation. “I’d heard the rumors, but yeah, I thought I was going to stay here,” Rios said outside the Blue Jays clubhouse. “Stuff happens, and I just have to move on.” Blue Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi said the move was not “a financial dump,” but acknowledged that Toronto needs “more financial flexibility.” Rios signed a seven-year contract with the Blue Jays in April 2008 that guarantees him $69,835,000. He was due $5.9 million this season, $9.7 million in 2010, $12 million each in 2011 and 2012 and $12.5 million apiece in 2013 and 2014. There is also a $13.5 Please see RIOS, page 3B

Panthers’ Smith injures shoulder in practice By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Carolina Panthers receiver Steve Smith was carted to the locker room with a right shoulder injury Monday night, the latest blow to another key player in an injury-filled start to training camp. X-rays were negative, but general manager Marty Hurney was uncertain how long the fourtime Pro Bowl receiver will be out. Smith was injured when he got tangled with cornerback Chris Gamble early in the evening workout, held without pads. Seeing one of the NFL’s top receivers wincing in pain produced some tense moments for the Panthers, a week after they lost starting defensive tackle Maake Kemoeatu for the season due to a torn Achilles’ tendon. This injury doesn’t appear to be as serious, but could keep Smith out for a while. Smith crumpled to the turf and grabbed his right arm after a slight collision with Gamble in a

passing drill. He took off his helmet and kicked it before walking to a nearby tent, favoring his right shoulder. Smith was briefly treated before being carted inside, where he underwent X-rays. It wasn’t immediately clear if Smith would be taken to Charlotte to be further evaluated. Smith had 78 catches for 1,421 yards and six touchdowns last season and is the top target of quarterback Jake Delhomme. Smith, who turned 30 earlier this year, is Carolina’s franchise leader with 51 touchdown catches. The Panthers have little proven depth behind him. The other starter is 36-year-old Muhsin Muhammad. Dwayne Jarrett, who has caught 16 passes in his first two seasons, is the leading candidate to be the No. 3 receiver this season. Linebacker Jon Beason returned to practice after missing nine workouts because of a AP Photo/The Charlotte Observer, Jeff Siner strained left hamstring.

RALEIGH — Russell Wilson knows that almost any talk about North Carolina State’s chances of competing for an Atlantic Coast Conference championship this year starts with him. “I’m an athlete — there will be expectations, good or bad, every year,” Wilson said Monday during the team’s preseason media day. “You can’t really worry about it. You’ve just got to focus on what you can do and what you can control and things you can get better at.” Of course, pressure is sure to follow when a player does what Wilson did last year as a rookie, namely becoming the first freshman quarterback to be voted first-team all-ACC. His defender-frustrating mobility and nearly mistake-free style is a big reason why the Wolfpack crawled out of a 2-6 hole to reach a bowl game, and why the Wolfpack figures it’s poised for another step forward in coach Tom O’Brien’s third season here. Only a year ago, Wilson was one of five players who entered preseason camp with a shot at the starting job. This time, Wilson is the Wolfpack’s unquestioned leader. “He’s got a lot of work still to do,” O’Brien said, “but if he can build upon last year and get better than he was, we’re in a much better starting spot today at quarterback than we were last year.” Wilson’s rookie year got off to a bumpy start when he suffered a concussion in the opening loss at South Carolina, but he went on to throw for 1,955 yards and 17 touchdowns while running for 388 yards and another four scores. He also threw just one interception all season and carries a school-record 249pass streak without a pick into the opener against the Gamecocks at Carter-Finley Stadium on Sept. 3. Wilson’s importance might never have been more evident than the Bowl against Rutgers. He had thrown for 186 yards and a score before suffering a knee injury that sidelined him for the second half, allowing Rutgers to rally from a 17-6 deficit for a 29-23 victory. It’s one reason why Please see STATE, page 3B

NBA Kahn: Rubio buyout ‘still very problematic’ MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Timberwolves president David Kahn says point guard Ricky Rubio’s buyout situation is “still very problematic” and he remains unsure of when the fifth overall pick will come to the United States. Rubio has two years remaining on his contract with his professional team in Spain and has yet to be able to negotiate down a buyout number that is at least $6.6 million. The Timberwolves selected Rubio with the No. 5 pick in the June draft. They can only contribute $500,000 toward the buyout under NBA rules. So the 18-year-old Rubio is contemplating staying in Spain for another year or two before joining the Timberwolves. Kahn says he still does not know if an agreement will be reached to bring Rubio to Minnesota this season.

RALEIGH — The Carolina Hurricanes have sued a Raleigh hip-hop artist who produced a song promoting the franchise, saying the man has violated team trademarks. The federal lawsuit accuses Tyrone Banks of misusing trademarks by referring to the tune as “the official Carolina Hurricanes song” and wearing a Hurricanes jersey in promotional material. “We look at our name and our trademarks as our most valuable assets, and

they need to be protected,” said William Traurig, general counsel for the Hurricanes. Banks produced “Carolina Hurricanes” in 2007 and provided a copy of the song to the team, asking the Hurricanes play the music during games, according to court documents. The lawsuit said the Hurricanes did use the song during games and short segments of it appeared in a television ad and online video. Banks also received complimentary tickets to a game, when the Hurricanes played the song,

highlighted Banks in the audience and displayed his name on the scoreboard. “Carolina Hurricanes. That’s our team, say the name,” the song’s chorus repeats. But the Hurricanes say Banks is promoting sales of the song in a way that would incorrectly suggest an affiliation between him and the team. The Hurricanes sent Banks a cease-and-desist notice in February and he responded by removing the term “official” or “anthem” from his Web site and added disclaimers, according to the suit. But the Hur-

ricanes complained that Banks is still seen wearing a Hurricanes jersey in promotional material and said the franchise has been damaged by the unauthorized use of trademarks. Banks did not immediately responded to a message seeking comment. The lawsuit filed on Friday said Banks has demanded compensation for the song, claiming that he authorized use of the music only during games so long as the team displayed his name, song title, and name of his record company while the song was playing.

Friedgen feeling spry after dropping 105 pounds By DAVID GINSBURG AP Sports Writer

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — There’s less of Ralph Friedgen on the Maryland sideline these days, thanks to a diet that has enabled the Terrapins head football coach to drop a whopping 105 pounds. Friedgen won’t say how much he weighed before he began the diet in October, but this much is certain: He was well over 300 pounds and not in a very healthy place. “A couple of years back I looked into doing lap band surgery, and then a week away I decided not to do it because it would limit what I could eat and how I could eat it,” Friedgen said Monday. “But the doctors had told me when things start going bad, being overweight, they’re going to go bad fast.” Friedgen knew it was time to get rid of the two extra chins and the massive belly that was making it difficult for him to walk without losing his breath. So he began a diet that provided him with five packaged meals a day and healthy snacks. “I have this basket in my office, and I basically eat every three hours. I don’t know what’s in their food, but when I eat it

Maryland head football coach Ralph Friedgen discusses his weight loss during the team’s media day Monday, in College Park, Md. Friedgen lost about 105 pounds while dieting in recent months. I’m not hungry,” he said. “My goal is to go to 150. Whether I can do that or not, I don’t know. The more I lose, the harder it gets.” Friedgen has taken the Terrapins to a bowl game in each of the last three years and six of his first eight seasons at his alma mater. But in some circles, his heavy frame was often talked about more than as his coaching skill. Now that Friedgen is only a shell of his former self, his new look was a hot topic at media day Monday. “A lot of times coaches expect a lot out of their players, but he’s really practicing what

he preaches as far as dedication, hard work and doing things right,” senior quarterback Chris Turner said. It hasn’t been easy for Friedgen, who probably never met a pizza he didn’t want to devour. “There was a time when we were out recruiting, and his stomach let out a growl that was unbelievable,” offensive coordinator James Franklin recalled. “But that was early in the process, and I think the body adjusts. He’s gotten used to it. This fits his lifestyle, because it’s hard to eat healthy on the road. Now he packs the meals in his bag, pulls them out, pops one in his mouth and

he’s good to go.” The 62-year-old Friedgen isn’t at the point where he’s ready to try cartwheels. He’s still quite large, but there’s no question he looks better and, more importantly, feels better. “The biggest thing I’ve noticed is I’m more flexible,” he said. “I feel energized, and our kids, they’re aware of it.” Of course they are. When a guy loses more than 100 pounds, it’s tough to overlook. “He looks real healthy right now and is moving around a lot better than he was before,” running back Da’Rel Scott said. Franklin said: “He’s got so much more energy, he feels great. It couldn’t be a better situation. I think it’s going to help our team. I just think in general it’s good for us and good for him personally.” When he came to Maryland as a player in the 1960s, Friedgen had designs on being a quarterback. He never got the chance, in part because he his body developed into that of an offensive lineman. Four decades later, Friedgen may end up looking like a quarterback, after all. I’m going to stick with this,” he said of the diet, “and see where it goes.”

Weis feeling better about standing during game By TOM COYNE AP Sports Writer

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis is feeling good about his health as well as his team. Weis was worried three weeks ago about whether he’d be ready to stand along the sideline for a full game after having his right knee replaced in December. The condition of that knee had deteriorated after his left

knee was severely injured when a 264-pound player collided with him during the Michigan game last September. “It’s taken a drastic turn for the better,” Weis said Monday. “My right leg feels way better. I still don’t have great staying power. But every day that’s getting better and better.” The pain in Weis’ knees got so bad last season before the surgery that he watched Notre Dame’s 49-

21 victory in the Hawaii Bowl from the coaches’ box. Weis spent the summer working on his legs, walking on a treadmill in a pool in the training room. He’d walk up to four miles a day for as many days a week as he could find time. Weis said working in the pool is good for him because of nerve damage to his feet, the result of complications from gastric bypass surgery in 2002.

On Monday, Weis leaned at times on an equipment box alongside the field. There also was a seat at practice for him, but the seat was a regular sight at practice before he was injured as well. Weis, 53, plans to have his left knee replaced after the season is over, saying it still gives him problems. “If you see me walk, my left leg is like this ... it takes a hard left when I’m walking,” he said.

rival Miami. The coaches are also bringing back a slogan from the undefeated 1999 Seminoles team that won the national title: “It’s Not About Me ... It’s About Us.” Fisher, who is the architect of Florida State’s offense, agrees the Seminoles are on the right path despite their youth. “We’re a very young football team, but a team that’s played a lot of football,” said Fisher, noting that the 9-4 record and No. 21 ranking last season was the school’s best in the last four years. Bowden conceded it would probably be 2010 by the time the “young and experienced” team might be ready to compete for another title. “The good thing is they’re back another year,” he said. “We’ve got a chance to improve, improve both years.”

This season, Florida State needs to replace its top two receivers, running back and record-setting Lou Groza Award-winner kicker Graham Gano. Junior quarterback Christian Ponder returns for his second year as a starter. Bowden faces the possibility of 14 career victories being stripped by the NCAA because of an academic cheating scandal at the school. His 382 career coaching wins are one

fewer than all-time major college leader Joe Paterno of Penn State. Bowden, who still suffers from a painful shingles virus on the left side of his face, doesn’t believe either the latest tiff with the NCAA or the program’s slide on the field in the last decade will cloud his career. “When I get out, people will refer back to the good things that happened,” Bowden said.

Bowden wants national championship By BRENT KALLESTAD Associated Press Writer

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State’s Bobby Bowden says he wants one more national title before retirement. At the annual football media day, Bowden said Sunday he believes the Seminoles are rebuilt and ready to win another national championship. He has two years to deliver before his successor-inwaiting, Jimbo Fisher, takes over in January 2011. “Definitely I want to win a national championship again,” said the 79-year-old Bowden, who enters his 34th season at Florida State. “I wish I could leave here on top.” Bowden’s 1993 and 1999 teams won national titles.

Panthers owner attends camp after heart transplant By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Jerry Richardson began by thanking his players for their support during his illness. Then the Carolina owner asked the franchise’s biggest offseason distraction, Julius Peppers, to stand next to him. The result of the surprise training-camp chat: plenty of laughs. Richardson may have aged a bit and lost considerable weight, but he showed Monday in his first address to the team since getting a new heart that he hasn’t lost his direct style. He assured his players he’s getting well — and that there are no lingering effects from management following Peppers’ public pleas to play elsewhere. “He’s always been an owner that if he has something to say, he’s going to say it,” receiver Muhsin Muhammad said. “He’s going to say it to your face. He’s not going to talk behind your back. He’s that kind of guy. “He stood up in front of the team, said what we wanted to say — then broke us down after that.” The jokes were sprinkled in a serious talk, which came after former Panthers defensive end Mike Rucker chauffeured the owner on the 90-minute drive

From left, Panthers head coach John Fox, former Panthers defensive end Mike Rucker and team owner Jerry Richardson watch the team run through plays during practice on Monday at Wofford College in Spartanburg, S.C. to watch his first practice since a brief visit to an offseason workout in June. After stretching, the players circled near midfield around their 73-yearold owner, who is still recovering after getting a heart transplant on Super Bowl Sunday. “Certainly he’s lost a lot of weight, but he looked good,” quarterback Jake Delhomme said. “He had good color in his face and it’s always good to see him.” Early in the 5-minute speech — which couldn’t

be heard by fans and reporters ringing the field — Richardson summoned Peppers. While Richardson and Peppers didn’t speak to reporters, other players said the owner told of a recent meeting with the Pro Bowl defensive end. It came at the end of a tumultuous offseason that included Peppers saying he had “maxed out” in Carolina, implored management to let him leave in free agency, and declared he would never sign a long-term deal with the team.

The Panthers still placed the restrictive franchise tag on their career sacks leader. After skipping offseason workouts, Peppers relented and signed his one-year, $16.7 million tender. “He just said that they had a conversation and went out for lunch and everything was cool,” linebacker Jon Beason said. Then a couple of bursts of laughter were heard, before the players broke into position groups to begin practice. Richardson, wearing sunglasses, dark pants and a white dress shirt, then tooled around on a golf cart. He stopped briefly in front of a group of reporters to say he was “feeling well.” “Just to reassure the organization and the players that he’s on the road to recovery, I think that did some good for everyone,” Muhammad said. “And it’s always nice to hear him talk, because he’s always going to say something that’s funny. He’s going to let you know how focused he is and how focused he wants the team to be.” A former teammate of Johnny Unitas with the Baltimore Colts, Richardson is an imposing figure that leaves employees on edge. Muhammad joked that when he shows up it’s “like the boss is walking in, so you start shuffling papers.”

White back at practice for Falcons By PAUL NEWBERRY AP Sports Writer

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — Roddy White practiced for the first time Monday as one of the highestpaid receivers in the NFL. Any pressure? “I’ve just got to go out there and do what I’ve been doing the last two years,” said White, who rejoined the Atlanta Falcons after missing the first eight days of training camp in a contract dispute. “Go out there and catch the ball, make some plays and set

up scores. The rest will take care of itself.” He certainly took care of the financial part by agreeing to a six-year deal worth about $50 million, including $18.6 million in guaranteed money, which puts him in the same neighborhood as receivers such as Arizona’s Larry Fitzgerald, whose $10 million-a-year salary makes him the league’s highest paid at that position. White, a first-round pick who struggled early on, really blossomed in 2007. Now he must prove he’s worth that sort of investment.

“I can’t go out there say, ’Oh, I’ve got to catch 90 balls’ or ’Oh, I’ve got to catch 100 balls,”’ White said. “If you do stuff like that, you’ll be pressing. I don’t want to go out there and press. I want to relax and play.” The Falcons will gladly accept White putting up similar numbers to the last two seasons. He had a career-best 88 receptions and set a franchise record with 1,382 yards receiving in 2008, ranking fourth in the NFL. He earned his first Pro Bowl appearance and became

the first receiver in team history to post consecutive 1,200-yard seasons. But entering the final year of a contract that would have paid him $2.28 million, White decided to hold out for a long-term deal. He got what he wanted, eliminating the possibility of becoming a restricted free agent in 2010. Coach Mike Smith wasn’t pleased with White’s tactics, saying it cost the team valuable practice time with its full complement of offensive players.

STATE, from page 1B O’Brien joked that the best play of the team’s recent preseason scrimmage was that Wilson slid to avoid a hit. “I feel like it’s a privilege and an honor to play with an established quarterback like Russell Wilson and a guy who makes the plays he does,” running back Jamelle Eugene said. “It’s not something every team is afforded and has the luxury of having. “He instills a lot of confidence in not only himself but the team, just knowing you have a guy you can really count on.”

Still, Wilson says that last year doesn’t matter anymore. Instead, he’ll worry about improving his game and helping to mentor redshirt freshman Mike Glennon, who will play in the opener to develop some depth behind Wilson. “The experience definitely helps,” Wilson said. “You hear the cliche about how the game slows down the more you play and the more experience you get. ... Having that one year under my belt, I could definitely notice the game slowing down for me — and that’s a positive.”

Tiger Woods pumps his fist after making a birdie on the fifth hole during the final round of the Bridgestone Invitational Sunday at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio.

TIGER, from page 1B if he was able to take his time, look at it, analyze it,” Woods said. “But he was on the clock, had to get up there quickly and hit it.” Harrington conceded he was rushed, although he said it would be unfair to give the final group preferential treat-

ment. Section VI-D in the PGA Tour’s player handbook says, “It is an obligation of membership to refrain from comments to the news media that unreasonably attack or disparage tournaments, sponsors, fellow members, players, or PGA Tour.”

RIOS, from page 1B million team option for 2015 with a $1 million buyout. “Since we did the contract, so many things have changed in the game economically in the last year, little over a year, and this allows us to get out from under a contract and enables us to do more to address our club going forward,” Ricciardi said. Rios has struggled most of the season, batting .264 with 14 homers and 62 RBIS in 108 games, although Ricciardi said that wasn’t much of a factor in the decision. He said that the White Sox had expressed interest in Rios for some time, but the two sides never came close to a trade before the July 31 non-waiver deadline. Even so, the Blue Jays have several gaping holes in the lineup and could use the cash. “Do we take the financial flexibility in a time when the game is changing, or do we retake the player and try to address some of our needs?” Ricciardi said. “We like the player, but it’s just a situation where the contract for us, it enables us to do different things.” Chicago trailed the Detroit Tigers by three games in the AL Central entering Monday night’s game at Seattle. Rios is

expected to catch up with the White Sox late in the night or early Tuesday morning. It was the second big move involving a highpriced player in the past two weeks for the White Sox. They acquired former NL Cy Young winner Jake Peavy on July 31 from San Diego for four young pitchers. Peavy, currently on the disabled list, is set to make $15 million in 2010, $16 million in 2011 and $17 million in 2012. There is a $22 million club option for 2013 with a $4 million buyout. “Tremendous player,” White Sox DH Jim Thome said when he found out the team acquired Rios. Rios has spent his entire career with the Blue Jays, breaking in as a 23-year-old rookie in 2004. A decent outfielder, Rios hit .283 with 81 homers and 395 RBIs over the past six seasons, making the All-Star team in 2007 and 2008. “It was a little emotional to say bye to your friends, to the people you came up with,” Rios said. “But like I said before, you have to move on. It’s a new team and I just have to keep doing what I was doing here, go out and play hard and just try to help the new team win.”

STEWART, from page 1B and the seventh road course win of his career, second to four-time Watkins Glen winner Jeff Gordon’s NASCARrecord nine. Stewart has seven consecutive top-two finishes at Watkins Glen, also winning in 2002, 2004, 2005, and 2007 and finishing second in 2006 and 2008. All of Stewart’s previous success at The Glen came with crew chief Greg Zipadelli at Joe Gibbs Racing. Darian Grubb was atop the pit box this time for Stewart-Haas Racing. The two-time Cup champion always seems to peak in the hot days of summer, and he’s right on schedule. Stewart has finished fifth or better in eight of his last 10 starts, all top 10s, and leads Jimmie Johnson in the standings by 260 points. All he has to do on Sunday at Michigan is start the race to secure his

spot in the 12-man Chase for the Cup title. “We’ll keep working hard. That’s what we have to do,” said Stewart, who led 34 laps. “We’ll be focused on what we’ve got to do next week. We’ve got to do what got us to the dance.” Added Grubb: “We’ve still got work to do. We’re trying to get stronger every week, and this was a testament to the effort. We know how good Tony is here, and we’re going to get stronger. Hopefully, we can carry that momentum into the Chase.” The race originally was scheduled for Sunday, but a string of thunderstorms forced it to Monday. Last week’s race at Pocono also was postponed to Monday because of rain. Ambrose was second, a career best, and Carl Edwards third. Kyle Busch, Greg Biffle, Juan Pablo

Montoya, Kurt Busch, Max Papis, Clint Bowyer and Denny Hamlin rounded out the top 10. Polesitter Jimmie Johnson, seeking his first career road win, finished 12th. Kyle Busch, 13th in points, closed the gap on 12th-place Matt Kenseth for the cutoff spot in the 10-race Chase. Busch, who entered the race 102 points behind Kenseth, narrowed the margin to 58. “This was a good finish for us,” said Kenseth, who was 14th. “We just need to make our team stronger.” The chaos that everybody was expecting on the double-file restarts never materialized. There were no major incidents in the hard, downhill, 90-degree right-hand first turn. Ambrose started fourth and ran up front early. But pit strategy dropped him deep in the field midway through the 90-lap race.

He stayed out when the rest of the leaders pitted for the first time and was running 22nd on lap 50 after making his first stop. “It was the first stop,” Ambrose said. “We were third and stayed out and everybody pitted. We could have pitted. We were off sequence and had to run our own race.” Ambrose ducked into the pits on lap 55 for fuel only and made up 10 seconds on leader Kyle Busch. A multicar crash involving Gordon and Sam Hornish Jr. on lap 63 brought out a 19-minute red flag stoppage and put Ambrose back in the mix. Kasey Kahne precipitated the crash when he dived inside of Hornish coming out of turn nine on the 11-curve track and sent Hornish into the grass on the left side. Hornish’s No. 77 Dodge caromed off a

tire barrier and back onto the track, and Gordon’s No. 24 slammed head-on into it, spinning violently around into the Armco barrier lining the track. Both Gordon and Hornish climbed from their cars uninjured. Also involved were Andy Lally, Jeff Burton and Joey Logano. Stewart cleared leader Kyle Busch on the restart on lap 67. Busch chose the outside line as the leader and Stewart took advantage, getting past him on the first turn and holding him off up through the high-speed esses. “It’s a hard decision when you’re leading to decide exactly where you need to be,” Stewart said. Stewart needed every lap of caution he could get to make it to the end of the 220.5 mile race, and the fifth caution helped. The final yellow flag came

out on lap 71 for debris, setting up another doublefile restart, this time with Ambrose alongside. Ambrose dived low inside to start lap 74, but Stewart blocked him and maintained the lead, with Kyle Busch and Edwards, who started 33rd, in close pursuit. Ambrose, running on older tires, never mounted a challenge as Stewart maintained a lead of more than a second over the final 10 laps. “I threw everything I could at him,” said Ambrose, who won the Nationwide race here Saturday with a daring move on Kyle Busch. “We got stuck in the back of the pack and had to make a gamble. The extra laps we had on the tires hurt. I closed in on him, could see him make a few mistakes, but we couldn’t quite close the deal.”

NFL Hall of Fame Game Recap

Titans 21, Bills 18 CANTON, Ohio (AP) — Kerry Collins was sharp and Vince Young tentative for the Tennessee Titans in overshadowing Terrell Owens’ debut for the Buffalo Bills. With a little trickery and a solid performance by the Collins-led starting offense, Tennessee opened the preseason with a 21-18 win in the Hall of Fame game on Sunday night. If this was the NFL’s throwback weekend to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding

RBIs, and NL-batting leader Hanley Ramirez had two singles and an RBI to help chase starter Brian Moehler (7-8) after five innings. Florida moved within 3 1/2 games of idle Philadelphia for the NL East lead.

Cardinals 4, Reds 1 ST. LOUIS (AP) — Kyle Lohse won for the first time since injuring his forearm more than 2 1/2 months ago, working six effective innings in the St. Louis Cardinals’ 4-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night. Colby Rasmus drew a bases-loaded walk in the fifth off Kip Wells (0-3) for the go-ahead run and Matt Holliday, Khalil Greene and Brendan Ryan hit balls off the wall in a two-run sixth. The NL Central leaders have won four in a row, and at 63-51 are a season-high 12 games above .500. of the American Football League, then this also resembled the Titans’ quarterback situation at the beginning of last year. That’s when Young got off to a terrible start and lost his starting job to Collins by Week 2. Collins, already selected the starter, quickly began delivering on the faith the Titans put in him after being signed to a two-year $15 million contract this offseason. He went 7-of-10 for 82 yards in producing two touchdown drives, one capped by reserve punter A.J. Trapasso’s 40-yard run on a perfectly executed fake punt on the opening possession. Collins was especially efficient in going 3 for 4 for 49 yards on third down. “I thought we got off to a good start,” Collins said. “We executed our offense and played fast out there.” The same couldn’t be said for Young, who took over at the start of the second quarter. In his first three series, Young was 1-of-5 for 13 yards and an interception, nearly dropped a shotgun snap and looked hesitant running the ball when he was easily caught from behind by rookie linebacker Nic Harris. Young finally warmed up, and showed great touch in hitting Paul Williams for a 5-yard touchdown pass to convert third-and-2 to put the Titans up 21-3 late in the second quarter. The No. 3 selection in the 2006 draft still has a long way to go to regain his once-dominating form. In five series, Young went 5-of-10 for 39 yards, and a 1-yard run. The Bills were sluggish and looked nothing like the better-prepared team, considering Buffalo opened training camp two weeks ago — a week ahead of the Titans. The only offensive highlights were provided by Owens, who signed a one-year $6.5 million contract with Buffalo in early March, days after being released by Dallas.

Bulls’ rally falls short, now tied for first with Gwinnett LAWRENCEVILLE, GA. — Reid Brignac had four hits to key the Durham attack, but it wasn't enough on Monday in a 6-3 loss to Gwinnett. With the loss, the first of four against the Braves, both teams are 65-51, tied for first in the South Division with 28 games left for each club. The Bulls had 12 hits, drew three walks, and had two runners on base due to errors, but scored just

single runs in the second, eighth and ninth, going 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position. The Bulls also hit into three double plays, two on balls hit to the outfield. Durham took a 1-0 lead on John Jaso's sac fly in the second. Jeremy Hellickson (2-1) retired 12 of his first 13, and got out of a first-and-second none out jam in the fifth to keep Durham up 1-0 through five. However, Hellickson

allowed a two-run homer to rehabbing shortstop Omar Infante in the sixth for a 2-1 Braves lead. Hellickson should have had a 1-2-3 seventh, and departed with the game at 2-1 after seven. However, Durham committed two errors on the infield, and Hellickson left with two on and one out. The Braves took advantage of the miscues, as well as two walks and a hit batter to score three unearned runs that

frame for a 5-1 lead. Durham had second and third none out in the eighth, but got just one run to get within 5-2, and a Wes Timmons sac fly extended the lead in the bottom of the eighth for a 6-2 Gwinnett advantage. Elliot Johnson did homer to start the ninth, and Durham later loaded the bases with one out, but Luis Valdez struck out Matt Joyce and Chris Richard to end the game.

Athletics 9, Orioles 1 BALTIMORE (AP) — Rookie Gio Gonzalez took a five-hit shutout into the seventh inning, Mark Ellis had a career-high five hits and four RBIs, and the Oakland Athletics beat Baltimore 9-1 on Monday night to extend their winning streak against the Orioles to nine games. After giving up two hits to start the seventh, Gonzalez (4-2) was pulled following a rain delay of 52 minutes.

The Athletics are 4-0 against Baltimore this season.

THAT SCRAMBLED WORD GAME by Mike Argirion and Jeff Knurek

OSANTA NEW Jumble iPhone App go to:

Ans: THE Yesterday’s

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

(Answers tomorrow) STUNG ENMITY DEADLY Jumbles: IMBUE Answer: The soldier didn’t return to base because he was — “ABSENT” MINDED


Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). You know you are right, though those with a different vision may be doubtful or confused by your instruction. Be gentle but firm as you stick to your original plan. The others will catch up soon enough. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Warm up your crowd. There are many wonders in your arsenal of social graces. Your manners are superb, your humor exemplary — and your cooking? Forget about it! GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Not everyone understands what is expected of him or her. This happens to be a talent of yours, but it doesn’t come easily to some people. Be kind and patient with those who are socially out of step. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re being shown some tough love. It’s not obvious. To you, it might seem that someone is simply ignoring your wishes or doesn’t want to connect. Let your intense desire lead you to your next move. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may be slow to get into your work. Perhaps you never really “get into” it — automatic pilot is fine, too. Your best ideas come when you’re not pressuring yourself. The important part is that you show up where you’re supposed to be. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You and a loved one understand each other perfectly — that is, as long as you’re making the effort to communicate clearly. The old mind-reading tricks won’t work, so use words.





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





LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Getting what you want doesn’t have to be hard. There’s a chance that you’re making things difficult because you believe they should be. Reach for joyful thoughts and feelings of wellbeing and you’ll move toward your goals. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re likely to get lost in the shuffle of other people’s needs. Remember that you’re a person who has needs, too. Take an hour out of your schedule to do something just for you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may feel a little less energetic than you’d like to be, but remember that you’re never far from your energy source. Connect once more and ask to be restored and revitalized. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The drama gets juicy. Maybe it’s a little more complicated than you’d like it to be, but you can’t deny that it’s interesting. Friends will want to hear every detail of what’s going on in your life. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your internal compass is well honed. It’s as though you are playing a game of “hot and cold.” As you get closer to your goals, you’ll feel happy. As you move away from them, you’ll feel agitated. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Inside you feel like the same person you were yesterday. But something has changed. Evidence: Something you thought was crucial to your existence has turned out to be not so important after all.
