Boarding house operator arrested

A Kittrell woman was arrested Thursday following an investigation into the operation of a boarding house, Henderson Police Chief Keith L. Sidwell announced. The woman, Mary Ester Thompson of 1664 Bobbitt Road, was charged with three counts of exploitation of the disabled or elderly, one count of felony larceny for theft of electricity from Progress Energy and two counts of possession of a stolen electrical meter. Members of the police department, the Department of Social Services, the fire department and code enforcement on July 28 responded to a code violation complaint at 212 Charles St., police said. The residence did not have electricity or water. Police said that three men ages 45 to 88 years were living there along with 5 others. The residents had no food, and human feces were found on the floors throughout the residence. Police said that one resident said they received only a small amount of nourishment each day. The elderly residents said they paid Thompson each month to provide food, shelter and care.

vehicle may have been involved in the incident. The Chevrolet was parked in a yard next to a house at 111 Summitt St., with Summitt Street being nearly parallel to Peace Street. And police were talking to people outside the house and along Peace Street. “We did recover some cartridges off of Peace Street,” Boyd said. “They were pistol cartridges.” Word of the shooting surfaced at approximately 1:40 p.m. Boyd said the department did not have any indication as to the cause of the incident.

OXFORD — The State Bureau of Investigation obtained a court order to review a Road Runner email account used by Kelly Currin Morris, who has remained missing since early September 2008. The order, signed by Superior Court Judge Robert Hobgood, said the SBI on July 1 and on July 7 interviewed a citizen who indicated Morris had previously written from the address kcmorris@nc.rr.com, with the citizen Morris providing the SBI a copy of an e-mail from the address and dated 2005. Road Runner Internet is a feature of Time Warner Cable. The SBI specifically obtained the court’s permission to look at any read or unread Road Runner e-mail in Morris’ name between Jan. 1, 2005, and Aug. 4. An SBI agent, in court records obtained by the Dispatch, said that he did not seize any items, but that Time Warner Cable would provide the SBI with documents. The SBI is keeping the identity of the citizen confidential because of details of past search warrants having been published by news organizations. Kelly Currin Morris’ husband, Scott Morris, has remained the sole “person of interest” in the disappearance of his wife and in the arson of the couple’s residence in the southwestern part of Granville County. The first signs of trouble surfaced shortly before 11:30 a.m. Sept. 4, when a caller to Emergency 911 reported a fire at the residence at 3220 Tump Wilkins Road southeast of Stem. Sometime between 4:30 and

5 p.m., the then-28-year-old Kelly Currin Morris’ 2005 Honda Accord was found abandoned approximately a mile away at a future subdivision, with her cell phone, pocketbook and other personal belongings still inside the car. On Sept. 12, the SBI concluded the house fire had been set deliberately. Then-Sheriff David Smith next declared Scott Morris a person of interest in the disappearance of Kelly Currin Morris and in connection with the arson. By Sept. 25, the first SBI documents were made public. They showed statements by Scott Morris about the vanishing of Kelly Currin Morris were inconsistent. The SBI additionally said sources specifically told them that Kelly Currin Morris and Scott Morris had separated before and had discussed divorcing and that he had punched holes in the wall during arguments and had once thrown a computer out of a window. And the SBI has said there is no evidence that Kelly Currin Morris, a mother of two, disappeared voluntarily. Scott Morris has declined to make any comments to the Dispatch. Throughout the rest of autumn 2008, the SBI focused on bank records of Kelly Currin Morris or Scott Morris and/or his tow truck business, with the SBI saying the crimes of arson and homicide are often committed in relation to financial motives. Additionally, the SBI received court approval to obtain Kelly Currin Morris’ laptop computer, to review e-mail records held by telecommunications giant Verizon regarding kcmorris1@ verizon. net, to review an e-mail address labeled kmorris1@ hotmail.com Please see MORRIS, page 3A

N.C. lawmakers leave bills on to-do list for next year Home-as-castle doctrine, annexation among items taking back seat to budget By EMERY P. DALESIO Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH — For emergency room nurse Terry Shook, his home is his castle. Anyone who kicks down his door to get inside ought to expect to be carried out again in a stretcher. That’s why he has urged the General Assembly to pass legislation making state law on deadly force crystal clear with the doctrine that unlawful and forcible entry into a home allows the resident to shoot without fear of potential prosecution. “I think we should have the right to protect ourselves against these people who want to do whatever they want to me. If somebody comes through the door to my house, as far as I’m concerned they’re bought and paid for,” said Shook, 47, of Claremont. The legislation is one of many updates and reforms that stalled when the General Assembly adjourned this week, but which could surface again when lawmakers return in May. Lawmakers enacted nearly 500 new laws

on topics ranging from sex education for middle-school students to new protections for auto dealers who could lose their General Motors and Chrysler franchises. But most of the Legislature’s energy went into finding a compromise on how much to raise taxes and which programs to cut. Lawmakers produced a $19 billion state budget that was more than $2 billion lower than last year’s appropriated amount. Scores of other issues were left hanging until next year. “We were so busy trying to get the budget out, maybe we didn’t push it as hard as we could have,” said Sen. John Snow, D-Cherokee, a retired district court judge who was one of the co-sponsors of the bill establishing the home-as-castle doctrine. “We’re going to give it an effort to get it moved in the next session.” Supporters of establishing the castle doctrine want to ensure residents aren’t second-guessed if someone breaking in at night turns out not to have a weapon, said bill sponsor Sen. Doug Berger, D-Franklin. Perhaps the biggest issue left for next year was reforming a law to make it more difficult for cities and towns to pull neighboring property owners into the comPlease see LAWMAKERS, page 3A

munity’s taxing authority against the property owner’s wishes. North Carolina is one of fewer than a half-dozen states that allows municipal annexations that can force landowners into communities and taxes they don’t want. Municipal leaders opposed changes, saying the 50-year-old annexation laws allow communities to counter suburban sprawl that sees middle-class residents and their tax revenues move outside municipal limits. Supporters muscled the compromise legislation through the House, but the measure never got a hearing in the Senate. The ensuing months give groups lobbying for a voice and a vote for people whose property would be annexed into a city more time to build support for meaningful changes, said Tony Tetterton, vice president of the Fair Annexation Coalition, an umbrella organization for groups who fought local annexations. “It’s a good thing that it didn’t become law because it would be a very bad law,� said Tetterton, who lives in rural Johnston County

The Department of Social Services removed the elderly residents and provided medical treatment and housing. The investigation by the Criminal Investigations Section of the police department found that Thompson was leasing the property and running a boarding house, police said. Thompson is being held

near Selma. “I just think long-term we need to press upon the Legislature that we’re not going away until we see meaningful reform.â€? Other bills that could come up next year would: • Force commercial dog breeders to meet state standards, register with the state, and be listed on an Internet-accessible registry. • Require commercial wind farms to obtain a state permit, and ban them from being built on mountain ridges. • Change the comparative fault standard used in state courts, which prevents a person hurt in a car accident or slipping on a wet floor from recovering damages in court if a jury decides the plaintiff was even slightly to blame. • Let cities and towns choose to join a statewide experiment in taxpayer funding of local election campaigns. • Create a loan fund for companies developing new pharmaceuticals or other biotechnology products to finance the North Carolina plants and equipment needed to launch production and create jobs.

Freed reporters issue video to thanks their supporters LOS ANGELES (AP) — The television reporters held captive in North Korea for 4 1/2 months have issued a brief videotaped statement thanking all of the people who worked for their release. The video, posted Thursday on Current TV’s Web site, shows Euna Lee and Laura Ling sitting on a couch. Both look fit and rested a week after returning home.

Lee says the two plan to eventually share the story of their incarceration. Until then she asked for more time alone with their families. Ling adds: “But in the meantime, we just had to say thank you.� The two were working on a story for Current TV when they were seized after crossing into North Korea from China.

Guitar legend, inventor Les Paul dies at age 94 His guitar series widely used in music industry By LUKE SHERIDAN Associated Press Writer

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Les Paul, the guitarist and inventor who changed the course of music with the electric guitar and multitrack recording and had a string of hits, many with wife Mary Ford, died on Thursday. He was 94. According to Nashville, Tenn.-based Gibson Guitar, Paul died of complications from pneumonia at White Plains Hospital. His family and friends were by his side. He had been hospitalized in February 2006 when he learned he won two Grammys for an album he released after his 90th birthday, “Les Paul & Friends: American Made, World Played.” “I feel like a condemned building with a new flagpole on it,” he joked. As an inventor, Paul helped bring about the rise of rock ‘n’ roll and multitrack recording, which

Today a guy wouldn’t think of singing a song on a stage without a microphone and a sound system.” A tinkerer and musician since childhood, he experimented with guitar amplification for years before coming up in 1941 with what he called “The Log,” a four-by-four piece of wood strung with steel strings. “I went into a nightclub and played it. Of course, everybody had me labeled as a nut.” He later put the wooden wings onto the body to give it a tradition guitar shape. In 1952, Gibson Guitars began production on the Les Paul guitar. Pete Townsend of The Who, Steve Howe of Yes, jazz great Al DiMeola and Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page all made the Gibson Les Paul their trademark six-string. Over the years, the Les Paul series has become one of the most widely used guitars in the music industry. In 2005, Christie’s auction house sold a 1955 Gibson Les Paul for $45,600.

enables artists to record different instruments at different times, sing harmony with themselves, and then carefully balance the “tracks” in the finished recording. With Ford, his wife from 1949 to 1962, he earned 36 gold records and 11 No. 1 pop hits, including “Vaya Con Dios,” ‘’How High the Moon,” ‘’Nola” and “Lover.” Many of their songs used overdubbing techniques that Paul the inventor had helped develop. “I could take my Mary and make her three, six, nine, 12, as many voices as I wished,” he recalled. “This is quite an asset.” The overdubbing technique was highly influential on later recording artists such as the Carpenters. The use of electric guitar gained popularity in the mid-to-late 1940s, and then exploded with the advent of rock the 1950s. “Suddenly, it was recognized that power was a very important part of music,” Paul once said. “To have the dynamics, to have the way of expressing yourself beyond the normal limits of an unamplified instrument, was

Foreclosures rise 7 percent in July By ALAN ZIBEL AP Real Estate Writer

WASHINGTON — The number of U.S. households on the verge of losing their homes rose 7 percent from June to July, as the escalating foreclosure crisis continued to outpace government efforts to limit the damage. Foreclosure filings were up 32 percent from the same month last year, RealtyTrac Inc. said Thursday. More than 360,000 households, or one in every 355 homes, received a foreclosure-related notice, such as a notice of default or trustee’s sale. That’s the highest monthly level since the foreclosure-listing firm began publishing the data more than four years ago. Banks repossessed more

than 87,000 homes in July, up from about 79,000 homes a month earlier. Nevada had the nation’s highest foreclosure rate for the 31st-straight month, followed by California, Arizona, Florida and Utah. Rounding out the top 10 were Idaho, Georgia, Illinois, Colorado and Oregon. Among cities, Las Vegas had the highest rate, followed by the California cities of Stockton and Modesto. While there have been numerous recent signs that the ailing U.S. housing market is finally stabilizing after three years of plunging prices, foreclosures remain a big concern. Foreclosures are typically sold at a deep discount, hurting neighbors’ home values.

The mortgage industry has been slow to adapt to the surge in foreclosures. Many lenders have needed government prodding to get up to speed with the Obama administration’s plan to stem foreclosures. The Treasury Department said last week that banks have extended only 400,000 offers to 2.7 million eligible borrowers who are more than two months behind on their payments. More than 235,000, or 9 percent, those borrowers have enrolled in threemonth trials in which their monthly payments are reduced. “The volume of loans that are in distress simply overwhelms” those efforts, said Rick Sharga, RealtyTrac’s senior vice president for marketing.

Business Wire E-mails from public overload Congress Web site WASHINGTON (AP) — People are flooding members of Congress with so many e-mails that they are overloading the House of Representatives’ primary Web site, www.house.gov. Congressional technicians warned House lawmakers on Thursday that the Web site may be slow or unresponsive because of the large volume of e-mail being sent to members. The spike in e-mail traffic comes amid boisterous town hall meetings across the country debating President Barack Obama’s plan to overhaul the nation’s health care system.

Ford to boost production of Focus, Escape DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — Ford Motor Co. said Thursday it will build more of its popular Focus and Es-

cape vehicles this quarter to meet growing demand from the federal government’s Cash for Clunkers program. As a result, the automaker now expects to produce 495,000 vehicles in the third quarter, up 2 percent from its prior forecast of 485,000. The increase includes more than 6,000 Focuses, a small car that ranks as the second most popular new vehicle purchased under the Clunkers program, and 3,500 Escape crossovers, among the top 10 most popular. Ford said it plans to build the Focuses at the Wayne Assembly Plant in Michigan, where the company will add Saturday shifts and weekday overtime to boost production. The company will build the Escapes at its Kansas City Assembly Plant, where employees have agreed to work two days during a planned shutdown week in August.

Hepatitis lawsuit filed against Ill. McDonald’s MILAN, Ill. (AP) — An Illinois mother and daughter have sued McDonald’s Corp. and a Milan McDonald’s, saying they were sickened with hepatitis A after eating at the restaurant. Karie Fiegel of Kappa and her 14-year-old daughter filed the lawsuit Thursday in Rock Island County Circuit Court. It’s the second lawsuit from a McDonald’s patron sickened in a recent hepatitis A outbreak. Attorneys are seeking class-action status in a separate lawsuit on behalf of people who received preventive shots. McDonald’s spokeswoman Danya Proud says the restaurant took immediate action when local health officials notified them about the hepatitis outbreak. Proud says it would be inappropriate to comment further on a pending lawsuit.

Edward Jones first among ‘Best Companies’ The financial services firm Edward Jones recently was named the No. 1 company on the “Best Companies to Work for in North Carolina” ranking, according to four Henderson/Oxford Edward Jones financial advisors. NC Magazine teamed up with the North Carolina Chamber to rank the state’s best employers. The ranking was based on a two-part process, a questionnaire filled out by the employers about benefits and policies and an engagement and satisfaction survey completed by the employees. The Henderson/Oxford financial advisors include Tony Adams, Lennie Blackley, Jeff Perry and Clem Seifert.

This is the most recent in a series of recognitions the firm has recently received. For the 10th year, the firm was named one of the “100 Best Companies to Work for in America” by Fortune magazine in its annual listing. The firm ranked No. 2 overall and No. 1 among large compa-

nies. For the 16th consecutive year, Registered REp., a trade magazine, rated Edward Jones No. 1 among the nation’s leading brokerages in its anonymous survey of the firm’s own brokers. Edward Jones has 447 branches in North Carolina.

Law Enforcement Briefs Ohio lab protests loss of 3-year DNA contract to N.C. firm CINCINNATI (AP) — An Ohio lab that lost its contract with the state for DNA testing wants Gov. Ted Strickland to review a state agency’s decision to award the work to a North Carolina company. DNA Diagnostics Center in Fairfield has complained in a letter to Strickland that awarding the 3-year contract to an out-of-state competitor will cost Ohio an additional $1 million and flies in the face of the governor’s promise to buy products and services from Ohio companies whenever possible. The Ohio lab says it has laid off 15 employees because it lost the state’s business, which would have been worth about $3.5 million a year.

N.C. innocence panel to hear convict’s case from ‘93 RALEIGH (AP) — A North Carolina man serving a life prison sentence for killing a prostitute 18 years ago will have his appeal heard by

the state’s Innocence Inquiry Commission. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday the panel will hear 47-yearold Gregory Flint Taylor’s case Sept. 3 and 4. Taylor was convicted in 1993 of killing a prostitute found dead on the streets of Raleigh. Prosecutors used evidence of a substance thought to be blood on the fender of Taylor’s truck parked near the body, but the substance was never tested. A commission investigator says semen found on the victim’s underpants did not match samples recently provided by Taylor or another man, Johnny Beck, who also had been charged. Prosecutors dismissed Beck’s charges after Taylor was convicted.

Feds seek help finding 8th N.C. terror suspect RALEIGH (AP) — Federal investigators are asking for the public’s help in tracking down an eighth North Carolina terrorism suspect. The FBI said Thursday it is seeking any information regarding the whereabouts of Jude Kenan Mohammad. The 20-year-old has been

indicted along with seven others already in custody. The indictment says that Mohammad went to Pakistan in October to engage in violent jihad. An FBI agent who testified at a detention hearing last week said authorities last heard he was still in Pakistan. Prosecutors accuse the eight men of plotting terrorism in a foreign country and a conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists.

N.C. man pleads guilty after 93 reptiles taken WAYNESVILLE (AP) — The owner of an Internetbased reptile business in North Carolina has pleaded guilty to violating wildlife laws after authorities seized nearly 100 animals. Multiple media outlets reported that 35-year-old Allen Rivera was fined $300 Wednesday for violating Haywood County’s animal control ordinance. Waynesville Police Lt. Brian Beck said Rivera had his 93 snakes and other animals returned about 5 p.m. Wednesday. Beck says Rivera was ordered to move the animals out of state.

Annual school supplies drive underway until Sept. 7

Supporting positive behavior focus of training for educators Administrators and staff members from five local schools participated in Positive Behavior Support (PBS) training in the Vance County Schools’ Administrative Services Center recently. Brooke Wheeler (pictured), principal at Cedar Creek Middle School in Franklin County, leads part of one of the training sessions. Wheeler talked about how well PBS has worked in her middle school. Both Eaton-Johnson and Henderson middle schools will implement the PBS program this coming school year. Dabney Elementary School also will implement the program for the first time this year. Other schools participating in the training were Carver and Zeb Vance elementaries. Both of these schools already use the PBS program, which is designed to promote positive behavior practices with all students throughout the school day, including time on school buses in the mornings and afternoons, in hallways between classes and in the cafeteria during lunch periods. PBS focuses on rewarding and recognizing students for their positive behavior.

The annual School Supply Donation Drive is under way to help needy children in Vance County Schools get the supplies they need to begin the new school year. Vance County Schools, in partnership with the Vance County United Way Volunteer Center, is asking local residents to donate new supplies that will be distributed to identified children in local elementary, middle and high schools. The annual drive began on Aug. 7, with volunteers accepting school supply donations in the parking lot in front of the Chick-filA of Henderson on Dabney Drive. Volunteers accepted donations from 7 to 11 a.m. Each person who made a donation received a coupon from Chick-fil-A for a free chicken biscuit or a free milkshake. The area

radio stations, US 98.3 in Oxford and WIZS 1450 in Henderson, were on hand to promote the event live. The Chick-fil-A cow also was there to greet contributors as they arrived with their donations. Until after Labor Day on Sept. 7, donation boxes for needed school supplies will remain in place at 16 local businesses including Americal Corporation, City of Henderson, Vance County Schools’ Administrative Services Center, Maria Parham Medical Center, Partnership for Children, Rose Oil Company, Saint Gobain Containers Inc., Walmart Distribution Center, Variety Wholesalers, M.R. Williams, Kerr-Tar Council of Governments, Walgreens, George’s Restaurant, Kittrell Job Corps Center, CVS Pharmacy and Kennametal Inc.

Anyone interested in donating supplies for needy children may take their donations to any of these locations and leave them in the donation boxes. Once the deadline for donations passes, volunteers will collect the donated supplies and distribute them to Vance County Schools to ensure they go to identified students. School counselors and classroom teachers will work together to identify students who are most in need of the supplies. Suggestions for supply donations include: notebooks, notebook paper, composition books, threering binders, rulers, pencil pouches, pencils, pens, highlighters, crayons, colored pencils, rulers, glue sticks, child safety scissors, book bags and student dictionaries.

Teens with Power is accepting applications from youth between the ages of 13-19 wishing to connect on educational issues, develop leadership skills, develop creative and analytical thinking, and nourish community involvement. The program is

a nine-month commitment that kicks off on Aug. 29 at a half-day retreat at the Henderson Family YMCA. The group will meet monthly from 6:30-8 p.m., beginning in September. Applications are due no later than Sept. 15 at the front desk of the Henderson Family YMCA. For more information about the program or to obtain an application packet, please call Kevin Collins at 432-3203 or Jeanne Lawson at (919) 256-6914.

News Briefs Deutsche Bank to open N.C. tech development center

Cary woman, 43, surrenders 65 cats living in her home

RALEIGH (AP) — A new subsidiary of Germany’s biggest bank will open a technology development center in North Carolina. Frankfurt-based Deutsche Bank and Gov. Beverly Perdue’s office said Thursday that DB Global Technology Inc. would invest nearly $7 million in the next five years. The company plans to hire more than 300 workers at an average wage of $88,000 a year. The state will give the company up to $9.4 million if it sustains the jobs for 11 years. The Cary town council is considering additional local incentives. Deutsche Bank employs nearly 79,000 people in 72 countries. Financial services firms Fidelity Investments and Credit Suisse also opened operations in the Raleigh area in recent years after being awarded state grants.

CARY (AP) — A North Carolina woman has surrendered 65 cats to animal control officials after a neighbor complained about the numerous pets. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday no charges will be filed against Jeanne Diaz of Cary. The 43-year-old willingly gave up the cats Wednesday after Cary police took possession of them and contacted a local animal rescue. More than 35 cats have been taken by Cat Angels Pet Adoptions. The others were euthanized due to various health problems. Police say Diaz acquired all the pets legally and did not mistreat the animals. Officials say many are friendly and appear to be well fed. Diaz said it all started with a larger-than-expected litter of Siamese kittens. They began reproducing after proper vaccinations and neutering procedures became too expensive.

Federal funds to create 3,400 N.C. construction jobs

from a paralyzing illness. A charity air ambulance organization, Grace on Wings, transported 53-year-old Richard Bosco. Grace on Wings CEO Hal Blank says Bosco is in a Charlotte hospital, near his home in Concord, being treated for Guillain-Barre syndrome. Bosco had taken ill while driving through Nebraska and couldn’t afford a medical flight home. Experts describe the syndrome as a disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks part of the peripheral nervous system. Blank says his organization got a donation for Bosco’s trip from Saint Francis Medical Center in Grand Island, where he has been treated for more than a month.

RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina officials say more than $52 million in federal funding will create 1,400 construction jobs for building affordable rental apartments across the state. The state Housing Finance Agency said Thursday the money from the federal Tax Credit Assistance Program will create jobs for building 10 properties in 10 counties. The agency also will receive federal tax credits to create 2,000 jobs for 14 other properties in 13 counties. Total investment is expected to be $192 million. The agency said most apartments will be designated for families and some for elderly residents. A portion of the privately owned properties will be available to people with disabilities and people on supplemental security income.

Sea turtle watchers needed for Cape Hatteras HATTERAS (AP) — The National Park Service is looking for a few good “nest watchers” for the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Outer Banks Group Superintendent Mike Murray says a new program will allow volunteers to monitor sea turtle nests. Volunteers also will be trained to assist National Park Service biologists with educating the public about sea turtle management, installing and maintaining closures, handling hatchlings and assisting with excavations. Three species of sea turtles nest within Cape Hatteras National Seashore: loggerhead, green and leatherback, all of which are considered threatened or endangered.

N.C. potters sell wares to build overseas schools SEAGROVE (AP) — Some North Carolina potters plan to sell 200 mugs, tumblers and tea cups and donate the proceeds to a man who has built nearly 180 schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The News & Record of Greensboro reported Thursday that the vessels will have the peace sign on the bottom, along with the inscription “Seagrove Potters for Peace.” The proceeds will go to the Central Asia Institute, started by Greg Mortenson, who wrote the “Three Cups of Tea.” The book explains why he started building schools 16 years ago in Pakistan and Afghanistan after nearly dying climbing one of the world’s tallest peaks. Potter Beth Gore read the book earlier this year and decided to help. She enlisted the aid of 13 other potters in Seagrove. The sale will begin Saturday at the potters’ shops.

banned a student’s T-shirt supporting the John Edwards presidential campaign. Waxahachie High School and school district officials barred 15-year-old sophomore Paul “Pete” Palmer from wearing the shirts to school in September 2007. He sued, alleging that school and district officials infringed on his free-speech rights. A federal judge in Dallas denied Palmer a court order to allow him to wear shirts displaying political messages to school. In a 15-page opinion filed Thursday in New Orleans, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals concurred. The three-judge panel says the dress code is “content-neutral” and intended to avert distractions from education. Since dress outside school and message buttons are allowed, the judges ruled that civil rights aren’t violated. Edwards, a former North Carolina senator,

Our Opinion

High time to NARC on bad Internet ads As one of the first steps in taming the Internet, so to speak, an organization charged with consumer protection from false or deceptive advertising has completed its first investigations of online blogs. The National Advertising Review Council’s mission is “to foster truth and accuracy in national advertising through voluntary self-regulation.” On Tuesday it recommended that the company Urban Nutrition — which ran Web sites such as WeKnowDiets.com and GoogleDiets.com — “clearly and conspicuously disclose its material connections” to such Web sites and stop presenting the sites as unbiased consumer resources. Like presumably dozens if not hundreds of companies worldwide, Urban Nutrition had established such seemingly independent sites solely to tout its products. Product endorsements that appeared to be from consumers were actually written by bloggers on the Urban Nutrition payroll. The “Most Popular” and “Customer’s Choice Award” items were always Urban Nutrition products. In another case, the agency determined that some of the claims made by the marketing firm Herbal Groups about its product Prostalex Plus were accurate, but recommended that the company’s “Prostate Health Blog,” which amounted to nothing more than a long-running ad for Prostalex Plus disguised as independent writing or journalism, remain discontinued as the company had agreed to do at the beginning of the investigation. Consumers, it was feared, were unable to discern that According to NARC (one of the truly great acronyms in American business), the group’s job is to minimize the government’s involvement in the advertising business (which could happen if the ad industry steadfastly refused to monitor itself); to maintain a level playing field for settling disputes among advertisers, and to “foster brand loyalty by increasing public trust in the credibility of advertising.” Computer-savvy consumers have been logging-on now for well over a decade, not only for Internet entertainment but increasingly to seek information about products and services. It’s about time that NARC got involved in controlling the truth and transparency of Internet advertising, which in the case of some products has become a 21st century version of the Old West’s traveling medicine shows.

Quotable “I’m concerned about the layers of regulation that health care has now. This will make it worse I think, and I’ve been in health care for 40 years.” — Charlotte Fett, who manages a clinic in Iowa, on health care reform. She and nearly 500 others jammed a sweltering community center meeting room to see Republican Sen. Charles Grassley. “These clothes are used in public, so they can contain molecules, viruses, et cetera, which will go in the water and could be transmitted to other bathers. We reminded this woman that one should not bathe all dressed, just as we would tell someone who is a nudist not to bathe all naked.” — Daniel Guillaume, an official in charge of swimming pools for the Emerainville region in France, where a Muslim woman was banned from using the Islam-friendly head-to-toe swimsuit — dubbed a “burquini” — because of France’s pool hygiene standards. The woman complained of religious discrimination.

Assembly’s ’09 session not all bad RALEIGH — It’s no secret that fiscal conservatives in North Carolina are angry. They have ample reason to be. In Raleigh, the General Assembly has just adjourned for the year after enacting a tax increase exceeding $1 billion (when fully implemented), including hikes in marginal rates for both the sales and income tax. Legislators also refused to consider substantive protections of property rights against government encroachment via eminent domain or forced annexation, while weakening property rights for restaurant owners who wanted to attract smokers. In Washington, a bipartisan coalition of foolish politicians spent much of the past year enacting trillions of dollars in bailouts, deficits, and ineffective “stimulus.” Now, Congress and the Obama administration are planning new trillion-dollar federal takeovers of the nation’s health insurance and energy industries, imposing unprecedented levels of intrusive regulation and costly taxation. And in many communities across North Carolina, taxpayers are being hit not just with higher state taxes but also increases in property tax — as well as the prospect of another half-cent sales tax increase to fund transit projects

that will move few commuters at great cost. Still, conservatives haven’t lost every battle this year. Consider three recent cases in which the conservative position prevailed in 2009. First, the Left tried to expand government financing of North Carolina political John candidates. Hood Currently, Special to taxpayers The Daily Dispatch are forced to pay for the campaigns of candidates running for state superintendent of public instruction, state insurance commissioner, state labor commissioner, and the appellate courts. Bills introduced this year would have expanded the concept to include candidates for state treasurer as well as local elective office. But the General Assembly adjourned without either bill becoming law, thank goodness. Even more significant was a victory in the courts. The N.C. Institute for Constitutional Law represented two Mecklenburg County attorneys who objected to the current funding system for judicial

candidates. One source of revenue is an annual $50 fee that all members of the State Bar were required to pay into the campaign fund. NCICL argued that forcing its clients to fund judicial candidates was a violation of the attorneys’ First Amendment rights. In a ruling released Tuesday, Wake Superior Court Judge Howdy Manning said that the fee itself was permissible but that it was unconstitutional to use the fee to fund judicial campaigns against the wishes of the attorneys paying it. Manning ordered the state to allow attorneys to designate their fees to fund a voter’s guide instead. While some are spinning the judge’s order as a win for government financing, it is really a loss — that is, it is a win for those who advocate political freedom of speech and oppose a purely voluntary system of campaign finance. That group compromises conservatives, libertarians, and a few intellectually honest liberals. Finally, the corporatewelfare lobby tried to create yet another dubious scheme this year to coerce taxpayers into subsidizing speculative private ventures. In this case, the avenue would have been a newly created Life Sciences Development Corporation empowered to make loans to

pharmaceutical, medical-device, or biotechnology startups. If the startup succeeded, private investors would have stood to make lots of money. If the startup failed, state taxpayers could have been forced to cover the loss. Supporters erred by trying to advance the bill late in the session without offering an adequate explanation of its more bizarre features or an adequate answer to serious concerns about its constitutionality. Again, the General Assembly adjourned without passing this “biotech bailout bill,” though it remains live for the 2010 session. So there was at least a little good news this year. North Carolina attorneys will no longer be forced to subsidize the campaigns of judicial candidates with whom they may strongly disagree. And while North Carolina taxpayers will have to fork over more money to the state treasury, at least the money won’t be used to expand the state’s welfare programs for politicians and politically connected biotech businesses. Not this year, anyway. Sometimes you have to take good news wherever you can find it. The writer is president of the John Locke Foundation and publisher of CarolinaJournal.com.

Letters to the Editor Education takes a hit in state budget When the Legislature finished its work … and adjourned after seven months in Raleigh, House Speaker Joe Hackney said the session would be remembered for saving public education. That followed recent comments by Gov. Beverly Perdue who, after signing the budget in private, claimed it protected education. The view is far less heroic from this vantage point, where it appears lawmakers pushed the tough decisions aside in favor of expediency. While there are education bright spots, they are far too few to warrant state leaders patting themselves on the back. East Carolina University officials were no doubt pleased recently when the $19 billion spending plan won “death panels” and whatnot, approval. The University of Obama admits this. In an North Carolina system lost interview with The New York only 6 percent in funding, less Times last spring, he acknowl- than expected … edged that oldsters are a “huge On the other hand, public driver of cost.” The “chronically schools face huge cuts, with ill and those toward the end of lawmakers giving local adtheir lives are accounting for ministrators the responsibilpotentially 80 percent of the ity of identifying $225 million total health care bill out here,” in savings.

Testing ObamaCare’s meddle If I went to a Democratic town hall, I’d probably boo, too. Hence, according to various Democrats and supporters of ObamaCare, I’m paranoid and just a bit unpatriotic. Well, let me dilate on my paranoid treachery for a moment. Under the plan discussed at President Obama’s infomercialesqe town halls, America would cut costs and expand coverage while avoiding rationing. Apparently, it’s paranoid to think that’s too good to be true. Imagine you’re in charge of bringing pie to a company picnic. You’re planning to provide dessert for 100 people. Then, your boss says you need to hand out pie to 150. Fine, you say, I’ll make more pies. But — oh no! — you can’t because you’ve also been told costs must go down. OK, then you can cut slices of the existing pies smaller so everyone can have a piece. Wait! You can’t do that either because you’re not allowed to ration (i.e., give less to more). According to Obama, the health-care pie will be sliced into more pieces, of equal or greater size than available now, for less money — all because government is so much better than the private sector at managing large projects. Such contradictions run through the talking points for ObamaCare. Consider life expectancy. In his big speech before the American Medical Association in June, Obama insisted that “the quality of our care is often lower, and we aren’t any healthier. In fact, citizens in some countries that spend substantially less than we do are actually living longer than we do.” It’s true, a few countries beat us in terms of life expectancy.

But life expectancy is only partly about health care. Other factors matter. Swaziland’s life expectancy is 31.88 years. That doesn’t mean the average Swazi dies just a couple of weeks before his 32nd birthday. It means lots of people die young and a few people die old and the average comes out to around 32. Jonah According Goldberg to the CIA World FactTribune Media book’s 2009 Services estimate, American life expectancy is 78.11 years. In the UK — with its nationalized system — it’s a whopping 79.01. Taiwan’s is 77.96 and so is Albania’s. Do we really think the best explanation for all this is how they pay for medical care? Or perhaps things like diet and culture are more important? Is Japan’s health-care system what explains Japanese longevity, or is it that fish and seaweed are staples of the Japanese diet? Even greater disparities exist within America. AsianAmerican women, according to a 2006 study by Harvard’s School of Public Health, have a life expectancy of 87 years, while for African-American men it’s 69. The healthiest white people in America are the low-income folks of the Northern Plains states. Again, is our health-care system the biggest factor? But here’s the kicker: The more life expectancy improves, the more we will spend on health care. Despite his professed outrage over charges of

A shiny new penny for Abe’s birthday Mint unveils third of four coins honoring Lincoln SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Abraham Lincoln got a present Thursday for his 200th birthday — or, technically, 319 million presents. The U.S. Mint released a redesigned penny to mark the bicentennial of Lincoln’s birth. The Mint plans to start out by producing 319 million of the new coins. The front of the redesigned penny is the familiar image of Lincoln in profile. The back shows him delivering a speech outside Illinois’ Old State Capitol, where he served as a legislator, delivered a famous speech on slavery and ran his transition office after being elected president. This is the third of four new pennies honoring Lincoln this year. His birthday was Feb. 12, but the event is being celebrated all year long. The earlier pennies showed the Kentucky log cabin where Lincoln was born and a scene of him reading as he took a break from splitting rails in Indiana. Officials say they’ve produced 1.3 billion of the first two Lincoln coins. The fourth penny, to be released in November, will celebrate Lincoln’s time as president. Hundreds of people gathered outside the Old State Capitol to see the coin released and buy up rolls of shiny pennies. U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill, called pennies “a

Pilot’s remains returned JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The remains of Navy pilot Michael Scott Speicher returned to his Florida home on Thursday, 18 years after his FA-18 Hornet was shot down on the first night of the 1991 Gulf War. Speicher’s remains arrived at the Jacksonville Naval Air Station around 3 p.m. About ten minutes later his coffin was rolled off the plane draped with Speicher the U.S. flag. It was to remain at the All Saints Chapel on the base overnight. Speicher’s ex-wife and his children placed roses on his casket before it was loaded into a hearse. Several sailors stood at attention and lined the runway as the hearse passed by. Buddy Harris, who was Speicher’s best friend and who later married his widow, Joanne, accompanied the casket on the flight from Dover, Del., to Florida. On Friday, Speicher’s casket will first be taken to the Memorial Wall outside Jacksonville Municipal Stadium. The hearse will drive by locations with ties to Speicher’s life. He will be buried at Jacksonville Memory Gardens in a private family ceremony. Speicher was a native of the Kansas City area and moved to Florida when he was a teenager. He graduated from Florida State University in 1980 with a business administration degree. The school’s $1.2 million Scott Speicher Tennis Complex was dedicated in 1993.

common coin, the most common of all” and said they are a fitting tribute for a president who accomplished great things despite his common origins. But the penny has also been criticized as nearly useless now that inflation has sucked away so much of its value. The Mint says it costs 1.4 cents to produce a penny, which has led to calls for discon-

tinuing the coin or at least switching to less expensive metal. The Lincoln pennies, though, follow the Mint’s successful programs to generate public interest in coins by issuing quarters commemorating each state and dollars honoring the presidents. Joel Iskowitz designed the new penny for the Mint, a process that

took months of research, sketches and reviews. “Nothing in my career as an artist or in the course of my life as an American citizen has meant any more to me than getting this selection,” Iskowitz said. “It’s kind of daunting, to tell you the truth.” On the Net: www. usmint.gov

A good day for Tiger at Hazeltine Woods bogey-free, leads day one at PGA Championship By NANCY ARMOUR AP National Writer

CHASKA, Minn. — Missing the cut shouldn’t be a problem for Tiger Woods at this major. He was better than anyone else at the PGA Championship on Thursday morning, shooting a bogey-free, 5-under 67. He’s AP Photo/Charlie Riedel one stroke ahead of playing partner and defending champ Tiger Woods tees off on the eighth hole during the first round of the 91st PGA Padraig Harrington. Championship at the Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minn. Thursday. “I feel pretty comfortable if

I’m playing well,” Woods said. “There are times I’ve put it together and had some pretty good margins of victory. I just feel that, overall, my game over the years has gotten better. It’s become more consistent. When I’m playing well, I usually don’t make too many mistakes.” He didn’t on this day, breaking 70 in the opening round of a major for the first time since the 2007 British Open. He made birdies on all but one of

Hazeltine National’s long par 5s and hitting 12 of 14 fairways. His only “flaw” was a few missed putts, including ones for birdie on each of his last two holes. “It’s always nice to get off quick, but the first round — you can play yourself out of a tournament but you certainly cannot win it on the first day,” said Woods, who has four Wanamaker Trophys among his 14 major Please see PGA, page 3B

Panthers’ Stewart still slowed by inury

O’Brien: LB Irving out for season

By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

RALEIGH — North Carolina State will be without its top defensive player this season. Coach Tom O’Brien said Thursday that linebacker Nate Irving won’t play as he recovers from injuries suffered in a June car wreck. Irving had met with his doctor in the afternoon O’Brien and decided it made more sense for him not to rush back after suffering a broken leg, a collapsed lung and a separated shoulder in the accident. “The initial shock was not what he wanted to hear,” O’Brien said, “but I think the more he met with the doctors and made it through his appointments, he reasoned the best thing for him would be not to push it this year.” Irving, speaking to reporters for the first time since the wreck, had held out hope he would be able to return, but said he “kind of expected” being sidelined all year. Authorities have said that Irving might have fallen asleep at the wheel before crashing into two trees on Interstate 40 in Johnston County while returning to school from his home in Wallace, located near Wilmington. He was charged with careless and reckless driving. The junior said his only memory from that night was leaving home, then waking up in a hospital. “I would say I’m pretty blessed to make it out of the accident and be here today as I am now,” he said. “I’m still here. After you see some of the pictures of the wreck, I don’t have any complaints. I’m just blessed to be here. I’m just happy to be here.” When asked whether he would hold out any chance that Irving could return this year, O’Brien said, “Never say never, but I don’t expect anything to happen.” Irving was an honorable mention all-Atlantic Coast Conference pick last year despite missing three games with injuries. He finished with 84 tackles, including 12 for loss, and four interceptions in 10 games. O’Brien has said he was the team’s top-rated defensive player coming out of the spring. Sophomore Dwayne Maddox and redshirt freshman Terrell Manning figure to play larger roles with Irving out, though O’Brien said it’s too early to predict who will start the opener against South Carolina on Sept. 3.

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Last year it was a toe injury. This year it’s lingering pain in his Achilles’ tendon. Jonathan Stewart can’t seem to get healthy enough to practice with the Carolina Panthers. The running back missed his third straight workout Thursday and has been held out of almost all contact drills when he has practiced. This comes after Stewart missed every offseason workout for a second straight year. Stewart was recovering from toe surgery in 2008. “It’s frustrating because I’m a hard worker and practice is part of that whole deal of getting better and getting a feel for the different things you see on defense,” Stewart said. “But I’m trying to stay positive and do what I can while watching, the days I’m not practicing.” Coach John Fox insisted Stewart hasn’t suffered a setback. He was at least practicing once a day before this week. “If medically they say they think it’s best for him to rest, then we rest,” Fox said. The Panthers can only hope Stewart is as successful with limited practice as he was last year. He rushed for franchise rookie records 836 yards and 10 touchdowns and combined with DeAngelo Williams to give Carolina the top running back tandem in the NFL. “I thought he played pretty well last year with some of that rest,” Fox said.

Vick lands with Eagles

Former No. 1 pick signs two-year deal with Philadelphia By ROB MAADDI AP Sports Writer

PHILADELPHIA — By halftime, the Linc was buzzing: Michael Vick was an Eagle. Suddenly, no one seemed to care much about the preseason game against the New England Patriots on Thursday night. All that mattered to most fans was that the disgraced quarterback had joined their team. Agent Joel Segal confirmed the signing, shortly before the Philadelphia Eagles announced it in a text message. The team gave Vick a one-year deal with an option for a second year. “We don’t need another quarterback, especially him,” longtime fan Donald Crispin said. The 29-year-old Vick, once the NFL’s highest-paid player, has been out of action since 2006. The former Atlanta Falcons star was convicted in August 2007 of conspiracy and running a dogfighting

ring, and served 18 of a 23-month sentence in federal prison. He also was suspended indefinitely by the NFL. Commissioner Roger Goodell conditionally lifted Vick’s suspension on July 27, allowing him to sign with a team, practice and play in the last two preseason games. Once the season begins, Vick can participate in all team activities except games, and Goodell said he would consider Vick for full reinstatement by Week 6 (Oct. 18-19) at the latest. The Eagles reached the NFC championship game last season under quarterback Donovan McNabb, and are still looking for their elusive first Super Bowl win. McNabb has led the Eagles to five NFC championship games and one Super Bowl appearance in the last eight years, and was rewarded with a $5.3 million raise in the offseason. The Eagles tore up his old contract with two years remaining, and gave him a new deal worth

$24.5 million over the next two seasons. The team is a surprise landing point for Vick. It was among 26 clubs that said there was no interest in him, but that may have changed when backup Kevin Kolb strained a knee ligament earlier this week. Kolb’s injury isn’t serious and he’s expected to return next week. The Eagles also have veteran A.J. Feeley. When news of Vick’s signing circulated in the press box during the first half of the Eagles’ preseason opener against New England, even the team’s public relations staff seemed surprised. The crowd quickly caught on at Lincoln Financial Field. Fans standing on the concourse were in disbelief. One guy wondered how quickly he’d be able to buy a Vick jersey. Another asked if this was a joke. “It doesn’t make any sense,” said Please see VICK, page 2B

Steelers win 17-10 in Super Bowl rematch By ALAN ROBINSON AP Sports Writer

PITTSBURGH — Isaac Redman, an undrafted rookie from Bowie State playing long after the starters for both Super Bowl teams left the field, scored twice in the fourth quarter and the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Arizona Cardinals 20-10 in a preseason opener Thursday night. Neither team scored a touchdown until rookie Joe Burnett intercepted a pass by third-teamer Brian St. Pierre, a former Steelers backup, and returned it to the Arizona 3 to end the third

quarter. Redman scored on the next play, and scored on a 5-yard run about 7 minutes later to end an 80-yard drive led by No. 3 quarterback Dennis Dixon. Redman, a power back who hasn’t hesitated to take on some of the Super Bowl champion’s best linebackers in blocking drills, is listed as the No. 7 running back, yet he also scored twice in goal-line situations during the team’s only game-like night practice of training camp last Friday. Arizona came back for its only score on fourth-string Please see STEELERS, page 2B

NEW YORK — NFL commissioner Roger Goodell decided Donte’ Stallworth’s football punishment should last much longer than his 24 days in jail. The Cleveland Browns receiver, who pleaded guilty to killing a pedestrian while driving drunk, was suspended without pay Thursday for the entire season. He is barred from team activities until he is reinstated after the Super Bowl. “Your conduct endangered yourself and others, leading to the death of an innocent man,” Goodell wrote in a letter to Stallworth released by the league. “The NFL and NFL

players must live with the stain that you have placed on their reputations.” Stallworth struck 59-year-old crane operator Mario Reyes the morning of March 14 in Miami. He pleaded guilty June 16 to DUI manslaughter, a second-degree felony, and was suspended indefinitely by Goodell two days later. “Regardless of the length of my suspension, I will carry the burden of Mr. Reyes’ death for the rest of my life,” Stallworth said in a statement. “I urge NFL fans not to judge NFL players or me based on my tragic lapse in judgment. I am a good person who did a bad thing. I will use the period of my suspension to reflect, fulfill my obligations, and use this experience to make a posi-

tive impact on the lives of those who look up to NFL players.” Stallworth drew a 30-day jail sentence and reached an undisclosed financial settlement with the family of Reyes, who was leaving his job when killed. Goodell said he didn’t take the sentence into account in determining if Stallworth violated the league’s substance abuse and personal conduct policies. The commissioner held a hearing with Stallworth, his representatives and union officials Aug. 5. He also met privately with Stallworth on Monday at the 28-year-old player’s request. “As you recognized both at and following the hearing, guilt or innocence as

a matter of criminal law is not the same as a violation of NFL policies,” Goodell wrote. Stallworth signed a seven-year, $35 million contract in 2008 and received a $4.5 million roster-signing bonus the night before the crash. He will lose the remaining $745,000 on his deal for 2009. Browns coach Eric Mangini wouldn’t say whether he was open to bringing Stallworth back next season. “There’s really no decision that’s been made; there’s no timetable that’s been set,” he said. “The focus is on what we have to do here, the players that are here and that’s really the direction we’re headed.”

NFL PRESEASON

Ravens blank ’Skins; Pats win in Brady’s return Ravens 23, Redskins 0 BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens’ passing game appears to be better than anticipated. The Washington Redskins? Not so much. Joe Flacco led the Ravens to field goals on his only two series, Troy Smith threw a touchdown pass, and Baltimore beat the punchless Redskins 23-0 on Thursday night. During the offseason, the Ravens feared their lack of depth at wide receiver might be an issue. But 15 players caught passes for Baltimore, eight of them wideouts. Justin Harper led the charge with four catches for 57 yards and a touchdown. Flacco was 9 for 15 for 103 yards and Smith completed 14 of 30 passes for 200 yards, including a beat-the-clock 19-yard score to Harper with 5 seconds left in the first half. The Redskins didn’t fare nearly as well. Jason Campbell went 3 for 6 for 38 yards, and both his drives ended with punts. Backup Todd Collins was 8 for 11 for 70 yards but failed to produce any points, and Colt Brennan threw the game’s lone interception. “We didn’t attack them just yet because we’re just getting into a rhythm, but

Patriots 27, Eagles 25 PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Tom Brady was making his comeback against the Philadelphia Eagles while Michael Vick was getting ready to join them. Brady threw two touchdown passes in his first game since tearing ligaments in his left knee in

Week 1 last year, leading the New England Patriots to a 27-25 victory over the Eagles in the preseason opener Thursday night. Brady’s return was overshadowed by the news that the Eagles signed Vick to a one-year deal with an option for a second year. Brady ran well in the pocket and showed no lingering effects of his surgically repaired left knee. He threw two touchdown passes to tight end Chris Baker, one in the first quarter and another in the second. Brady was 10 of 15 for 100 yards with one interception. Vick was convicted in August 2007 of conspiracy and running a dogfighting operation, and served 18 of a 23-month sentence in federal prison. The former Atlanta Falcons quarterback also was suspended indefinitely by the NFL. He played his last NFL game on Dec. 31, 2006, against the Eagles. Brady, a two-time Super Bowl MVP, sat out the entire exhibition season last year because of an unspecified foot injury. He was knocked out for the season in the first quarter against Kansas City. Brady had started 128 consecutive games before going down.

the Pittsburgh 46. The drive stalled after Matt Leinart took over, even with backup Steelers defenders on the field, and Arizona punted. Sweed, trying to win the No. 3 receiver’s job vacated by Nate Washington, later hooked up with backup quarterback Charlie Batch on a 45-yard pass play to the Cardinals 39 that led to Jeff Reed’s 50-yard field goal. Sweed made two catches for 56 yards in his first game at Heinz Field since dropping

an apparent TD pass in the AFC championship game against Baltimore. Santonio Holmes, the Super Bowl MVP after catching Roethlisberger’s game-winning TD pass in the final minute of the 27-23 win over Arizona on Feb. 1, caught one pass in brief playing time. So did former Pitt star Larry Fitzgerald, whose two second-half TD catches in Tampa nearly rallied the Cardinals to a Super Bowl upset.

welcome, criticizing management over a contract dispute and feuding with McNabb. He was released midway through the 2005 season. “I couldn’t envision Mike being here,” said former Eagles linebacker Ike Reese, a teammate of Vick’s in Atlanta in 2005-06. “I didn’t see where he

fit in. I think most people in the locker room would accept it. Donovan is very secure in his position. He wants to see Mike get another opportunity.” ——— AP sports writers Hank Kurz Jr. and Jon Krawczynski and AP writer Dan Robrish contributed to this report.

I felt good,” Campbell said. “I really felt comfortable. Having some experience helps a lot.” Redskins coach Jim Zorn said of Campbell: “He did a nice job keeping his focus down the field. I wish that we could have gotten the first-team offense into the end zone.”

STEELERS, from page 1B quarterback Tyler Palko’s 20-yard pass to Onrea Jones with 3:30 remaining. Palko, a three-year Pitt starter, completed his first five passes for 59 yards but was intercepted on his next series and Steelers rookie Piotr Czech kicked a 44yard field goal. Quarterbacks Ben Roethlisberger and Kurt Warner each played two series — make that 1 1/2 for Warner — and neither produced a point before the

backups took over in the second quarter. Warner went 6 for 10 for 53 yards and Roethlisberger was 4 of 6 for 33 yards, and neither looked very rusty. The Steelers didn’t cross midfield with Roethlisberger in the game, but he completed throws to Hines Ward and Limas Sweed for first downs. Warner was pulled during the middle of a drive early in the second quarter after the Cardinals moved from their own 21 to

VICK, from page 1B Michelle Harlan, a mother attending her first NFL game with a young son. In a “60 Minutes” interview set to air Sunday, Vick accepted blame for not stopping the illegal dogfighting operation he bankrolled. Vick said he feels “some tremendous hurt behind what happened.” He said he should have taken “the initiative to stop it all ... I didn’t.” Asked if he was more concerned about his playing career or the dogs he hurt, Vick replied, “Football don’t even matter.” The animal rights group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, wasted no time reminding people exactly what Vick had done. “PETA and millions of decent football fans around

the world are disappointed that the Eagles decided to sign a guy who hung dogs from trees. He electrocuted them with jumper cables and held them under water,” PETA spokesman Dan Shannon told The Associated Press. “You have to wonder what sort of message this sends to young fans who care about animals and don’t want them to be harmed.” Since Andy Reid became the head coach in 1999, the Eagles have avoided players with character issues. The lone exception came in 2004 when Philadelphia acquired wide receiver Terrell Owens. That move paid off when Owens helped lead the Eagles to the Super Bowl in his first season. But T.O. quickly wore out his

Philadelphia’s Ryan Howard follows through with a threerun home run as Chicago catcher Geovany Soto looks on during the fourth inning of Thursday’s game.

Phillies sweep Cubs Phillies 6, Cubs 1 CHICAGO (AP) — Cliff Lee won his third straight start since joining the Philadelphia Phillies, and the NL East leaders beat the slumping Chicago Cubs 6-1 Thursday for their first sweep at Wrigley Field in 25 years. Shane Victorino had two hits and scored twice. The All-Star center fielder had no problems with the crowd, a day after he was doused with beer while catching a fly ball, prompting Victorino to file a police report. The Cubs management apologized to him. Lee (3-0) allowed one run and six hits over eight innings. He struck out eight and walked three to win his sixth straight start overall. He also helped himself with a double. Brewers 12, Padres 9 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Prince Fielder and backup catcher Mike Rivera each hit two home runs, and the struggling Brewers built a big lead before hanging on to beat the Padres. Fielder hit a 465-foot shot off the Miller Park scoreboard and Ryan Braun also homered as the Brewers connected a season-high five times. Manny Parra won his fifth straight decision despite allowing 13 hits in 5 2-3 innings. Parra (8-8) took a ninerun lead into the fifth inning, but allowed three runs on five straight singles and a sacrifice fly. San Diego rallied for three more runs off reliever David Weathers and a gaffe by second baseman Felipe Lopez in the eighth that made it 12-9. Rockies 10, Pirates 1 DENVER (AP) — Jason Marquis allowed

three hits over seven innings, Troy Tulowitzki and Clint Barmes homered and the Rockies finished off a winning series. Dexter Fowler had four hits — three of them doubles — and scored three runs, and Barmes finished with three hits and three RBIs for Colorado.

Reds 7, Nationals 0 CINCINNATI (AP) — Jonny Gomes homered in his first three at-bats to back Bronson Arroyo’s two-hitter and Cincinnati beat Washington 7-0 on Thursday night. Gomes hit two-run homers in the second and fourth innings and added a solo shot in the sixth to help the Reds take a 7-0 lead. He struck out in the eighth inning. It is the second time in Gomes’ career he hit three homers, the first on July 30, 2005, against Kansas City. He is the sixth player to hit three homers in a game this season. Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen was the last on Aug. 1. Gomes, who has 14 homers, became the 24th player in franchise history to hit three home runs in a game. Marlins 9, Astros 2 MIAMI (AP) — Jorge Cantu and Ronny Paulino homered, and the Florida Marlins continued their potent pace at the plate, beating the Houston Astros 9-2 on Thursday night. Sean West (4-4) struck out three in six innings, and relievers Brian Sanches and Chris Leroux combined to give the Marlins their sixth win in the last seven games. The Marlins remained 4 1/2 games behind firstplace Philadelphia in the NL East.

Bulls win with ninth-inning rally Special to the Dispatch

LAWRENCEVILLE, GA. — Elliot Johnson sparked a six-run rally in the ninth, as Durham beat Gwinnett 9-5 on Thursday to move within a game of first place. Johnson, who was 3-for-5, singled to start the ninth against closer Luis Valdez (5-4). He then scored from first on Henry Mateo's one-out triple to center, jarring the ball loose from Clint Sammons in a collison at the plate. After John Jaso struck out, Desmond Jennings singled to left to give Durham a 5-4 lead, their first advantage since the fifth inning. Reid Brignac then singled, as did Justin Ruggiano and Jon Weber, with the last

two hits driving home runs for a 7-4 lead. That chased Valdez, and Chris Richard doubled to right center for a 9-4 lead. Jason Childers allowed a run in the ninth, but closed out the game, allowing Durham to salvage the last of four against Gwinnett. Johnson and Weber highlighted a 14-hit attack with three hits each. Chris Richard had a pair of doubles. Dale Thayer (1-5) got the win with a scoreless ninth. Durham now heads home and begins a series with Scranton, the North Division leader and defending Governors' Cup champion on Friday. Andy Sonnanstine starts against Kei Igawa. Coverage on 99.9 the Fan begins at 6:55 p.m.

Tigers 2, Red Sox 0 BOSTON (AP) — Justin Verlander allowed four hits in eight innings, Ryan Raburn homered and the Detroit Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox 2-0 on Thursday to avoid a four-game sweep. Verlander (13-6) struck out eight and walked one, retiring 16 of the last 19 batters he faced. Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth for his 24th save. Clay Buchholz (1-3) allowed five hits in seven innings, walking three and striking out three while giving up Raburn’s homer to go with an unearned run in the fourth. Victor Martinez had two hits for Boston, and he also stole a base for the second time in his career and the first time since 2003. Royals 5, Twins 4 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Gil Meche gave up four

Rangers 4, Indians 1 CLEVELAND (AP) — Scott Feldman pitched six sharp innings and Josh Hamilton had four hits, including a go-ahead two-run double for the Rangers. Feldman (12-4) worked out of trouble several times after allowing a first-inning run in winning his third straight start. The right-hander allowed seven hits and struck out six to improve to 8-1 with a 3.33 ERA in 10 road starts this season. Hamilton’s double off Jeremy Sowers (4-8) gave the Rangers a 2-1 lead. He also had an infield hit in the first, a double in the sixth and another single leading off the eighth.

humid and breezy Thursday, but strong winds are expected Friday. There’s a possibility of rain during the weekend. “Obviously, he’s the best in the world so we expect him to win,” Allenby said, referring to Woods. “But you know what? It’s three more days to go. And a lot can happen.” Especially in this, one of the wackier years for golf. Kenny Perry had the Masters won, then lost it. Bethpage Black did its best imitation of a water park the first two days. Ol’ Tom Watson nearly turned back the clock at Turnberry. Not even Woods has been immune. The world’s No. 1 player has won at least one major in each of the last four years, but he’s running out of time this year to keep that streak going. He made a charge Sunday at

the Masters, but couldn’t hang on. He wasn’t much of a factor at the U.S. Open, catching a bad break when his side of the draw was deluged. Then there was the British. He was the heavy favorite at Turnberry, arriving fresh off a win at his AT&T National tournament. But he was mediocre on Thursday, shooting 71, and then a 74 to miss the cut on the line. It was only the second time in his professional career that he’d missed the cut at a major, and the first time at any tournament in more than three years. Woods, however, won the last two weekends at the Buick Open and Bridgestone and now clearly looks to be back on his game. “I had that nice rest there after the British Open, those two days,” he said, drawing laughter.

PGA, from page 1B titles. “You don’t have to be eight ahead after the first round. That’s not it. You’ve just got to keep plodding along. ... The whole idea is not to make that many mistakes.” Harrington, who also won the 2007 and ’08 British Opens, actually shared the lead with Woods after three birdies in a five-hole span on their back nine. But he settled for par on long No. 7 after his putt from the fringe rolled about two inches past while Woods two-putted from 30 feet for a birdie. Robert Allenby, whose second-place finish at Bridgestone last weekend was overshadowed by the duel between Woods and Harrington, was at 3 under with Hunter Mahan, Mathew Goggin, Alvaro Quiros and David Toms. Vijay Singh joined them

after nearly holing his second shot on the 16th. The ball landed above the hole and spun back toward the cup, stopping at the rim and leaving him an easy tap-in for birdie. Singh, a two-time winner at the PGA, hasn’t made the cut at the year’s final major since 2005, when he tied for 10th. Phil Mickelson, who missed the British Open to tend to wife Amy, who has breast cancer, was having an up-and-down afternoon. He was at 3 over after going bogey-double bogey on Nos. 9 and 10, but got one of the strokes back with a birdie on 11. “The first day of a major, it’s always good to keep yourself in there. I think I probably did a little bit more than that,” Harrington said. Having an early lead could be key if the weather turns foul. It was hot,

Yesterday’s

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

(Answers tomorrow) GUARD CHISEL SHOULD Jumbles: PIETY Answer: What the lively hairdresser liked to do — CURL UP AND DYE

SUDOKU

Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). Guard your tender heart and you’ll stay in a wonderful mood. It’s better to start a new than to delve into old history. If you must ask questions, make sure you really want to hear the answer no matter what it is. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are a role model whether or not you want to be. Those with less experience are watching you for cues as to how they should behave. Knowing you’re being observed helps you step up your game. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You cherish the special connection you have with your friends. That doesn’t mean you want to know every thought that crosses their minds. Focus your conversations. Stick to upbeat topics. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have many of the answers, but you don’t have them all. Encourage everyone to solve his or her own problems. When you back off, you empower others to be creative. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You get right down to business and finish things quickly. You make it look so easy that others will try to do what you do. But it’s not as easy as it looks. Your skills have been honed over years of practice. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your observations will be particularly astute. Praise those around you, finding what they do very well and pointing it out. Your encouragement brings up the level of production, as well as the morale of a group.

MUSCLY

FRIDAY, AUGUST 14, 2009

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re proud of who you are, but at the same time you value humility and love to be of service to others. Make a concession. By giving a loved one what he or she wants, you pave the way for a harmonious weekend. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your recent accomplishment will put you in the limelight. You might be dealing with a jealous or paranoid person. Back off. Don’t try to convince anyone of anything. Avoid getting into an argument. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your sense of timing is slightly ahead of most people’s today. You’ll get more accomplished, but you’ll also be prone to frustration over the excruciatingly slow pace the rest of the world seems to be adopting. Try to relax. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are given a pretty tall order. You’ll be asked to fill in the blanks, solve problems and create an experience for others. This is just the kind of challenge you thrive on. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be offered special treats and deals. Maybe there is a motive behind these offerings, but so what? Have a wonderful time with the perks you’re given. No one can make you do anything you don’t want to do. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There are very few people who understand how to give fantastic service as you do. Making other people feel important is an art and an attitude you continue to cultivate. You’ll be paid handsomely for this skill.
