Dale back with more charges against police Pastor with past HPD run-ins brings young man before council with racism, abuse complaints By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer

A 20-year-old black man on Monday evening claimed to the Henderson City Council that he was the victim of police cruelty, along with degrading language because of his race, and claimed that an officer physically abused

his grandmother. Theodous Bryant, with the Rev. Clarence “C.J.” Dale by his side, told the council that, “I feel that I’m treated unfairly” and added that, “I really don’t feel safe around the Henderson police.” Bryant’s statement prompted Councilman George Daye to

Man, 30, shot dead

say, “Authorities are messing up our young folks,” while Councilwoman Mary Emma Evans expressed sympathy to Bryant, but additionally took verbal shots at the court system, insinuating that unnamed black judges will not think about giving fellow blacks “a break.” Mayor Pete O’Geary turned

the Bryant matter over to City Manager Ray Griffin for investigation, with Griffin saying he would contact Police Chief Keith Sidwell this morning and start discussions. An attempt to reach Sidwell for comment before press time was unsuccessful. According to Bryant’s statement to the council, which is

only one side of a story, approximately a week or two ago, there was a warrant for a man’s arrest at a place rented by his grandmother, with the man’s girlfriend saying she was not going to let officers in without seeing the warrant. Please see POLICE, page 3A

Henderson man among vets who got false diagnosis letter Gulf War veterans group says 1,200 mistakenly told they had Lou Gherig’s Disease By P.J. DICKERSCHEID Associated Press Writer

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Former Air Force reservist Gale Reid received a letter from the Veterans Affairs Department Today that told her she had Lou Gehrig’s disease, and she Scattered immediately put herself High: 92 through a battery of painLow: 65 ful, expensive tests. Five days later, the VA said its “diagnosis” was a mistake. Wednesday Letters were sent to 1,864 veterans about disability benefits for those Drying with ALS, also known as High: 93 Lou Gehrig’s disease, and Low: 69 a “small number” have contacted the VA indiDetails, 3A cating they received the letters in error, VA spokeswoman Katie Roberts said Monday night.

The National Gulf War Resource Center said Reid was among at least 1,200 veterans who received the letter, even though they hadn’t been diagnosed with the illness. Veterans were initially suspicious, but still went through the agony of not knowing whether they had the degenerative disease, which typically kills people within five years. The National Gulf War Resource Center said at least 2,500 letters informing veterans of disability benefits for ALS sufferers were sent, with almost half — some 1,200 — a mistake. Those who received the letters have undiagnosed neurological disorders, according to the Gulf War veterans group,

which provides information, support and referrals about illnesses to people who served in the military. No one knows for sure exactly how many letters were mailed to veterans treated at VA hospitals and how many were a mistake. “VA is immediately reviewing the individual claims files for all the recipients of this letter to identify those who received the notification in error,” the VA said in a statement Monday night. Former Army Sgt. Samuel Hargrove cried Sunday after opening his letter. “I can’t even describe the intensity of my feelings,” said the father of two from Henderson, N.C.

“With so many health issues that I already have, I didn’t know how to approach my family with the news.” So, at first, he didn’t. Hargrove later discovered the mistake after talking with fellow veterans in the resource center and online. He was angry, as is Reid. “I’ve been through a week of hell, emotionally, physically and financially,” she said. Denise Nichols, vice president of the resource center, said her group has received calls and e-mails from panicked veterans in Alabama, Florida, Kansas, North Carolina, West Virginia and Wyoming. “Our fear was this could push somebody over the edge,” said Nichols, who

worried the news could lead already fragile veterans to commit suicide. “We don’t want that to happen.” Jim Bunker, president of the veterans group, said he talked to someone at the VA and was told the mistake was caused by a coding error. The VA uses more than 8,000 codes for various diseases and illnesses and veterans with undiagnosed neurological disorders, which can range from mild to severe. When told about the VA’s statement, Bunker said his group stood by its figures. ALS is a rapidly progressive disease that attacks the nerve cells responsible for controlling voluntary muscles.

Coronor rules Michael Jackson’s death was a homicide Insomnia drug overdose blamed By THOMAS WATKINS JUSTIN PRITCHARD Associated Press Writer


LOS ANGELES — Michael Jackson’s death has been ruled a homicide caused by a mix of drugs Obituaries, 4A meant to treat insomnia, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press, while his personal doctor told investigators he was actually trying to wean the King of Pop off the powerful anesthetic that did him in.

Forensic tests found the anesthetic propofol combined with at least two sedatives to kill Jackson, according to the official, who spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because the findings have not been publicly released. Based on those tests, the Los Angeles County Coroner has ruled the death a homicide, the official said. The coroner’s homicide ruling does not necessarily mean a crime was committed. But it makes it more likely criminal charges will be filed against Dr. Conrad Murray, the Las Vegas

cardiologist who was caring for the pop star when he died June 25 in a rented Los Angeles mansion. Through his lawyer, Murray has said he administered nothing that “should have” killed Jackson. Murray told investigators that Jackson stopped breathing about 10 minutes after he relented and finally gave in to his patient’s demands for propofol around 10:40 a.m., following a nightlong regimen of sedatives that did not work, according to court documents unsealed Monday. A search warrant affidavit unsealed in Houston, where

Los Angeles police took materials from one of Murray’s clinics last month as part of their manslaughter investigation, includes a detailed account of what detectives say Murray told them.

Bryant claimed officers forcefully pushed down the door. Bryant claimed that he was called and that Bryant’s grandmother asked Bryant to stop by and see what was going on. Bryant claimed that a couple of officers cursed at him, so he called his grandmother, hoping that his grandfather would come, but that his grandmother arrived at the scene. “One of the officers told her that he wouldn’t talk to her until she moved her f----g car. And he repeated that, like three times,� Bryant additionally claimed. Bryant claimed when the car was moved, she got a chance to speak with the officers and they told her what was going on. “When she went in the house, I heard a couple of rumbling sounds. So, I peaked around to see what was going on,� Bryant claimed. And Bryant claimed an officer was “swinging� his grandmother, who was holding onto a refrigerator door. Bryant claimed he said that, “Officer, you don’t got to swing my grandmother in that way� and that another officer put a stun gun in his face, “just inches away from my face.� “And he told me to get my black a-- in the car or he was going to shoot me with the stun gun,� Bryant claimed. Bryant claimed he responded, “Can you please get out of my face with it?� Bryant claimed his cousin intervened and told police, “Come on, I’ll take him. ‘Let’s go.’� “And I was on my way to my car. And then that’s when I heard him (the officer) tell another officer, ‘I’m going to get his black a today’,� Bryant claimed. “When I got in my car, he came to the car. He said, ‘You’re not going anywhere until I see your driver’s license’,� Bryant claimed. Bryant claimed he said his car was legitimately registered. “So, when I was reaching over to get my license, he yanked my window down. Now my window is broke,� Bryant told the council. Bryant claimed the officer yanked the car door open and had two other officers pushing him up against the car. “And like I said before, I’m

Dale wants HPD to respond to mother of shooting victim By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer

The Rev. Clarence “C.J.� Dale claimed to the Henderson City Council on Monday evening that the mother of a man who was shot earlier this summer has been unable to reach the police detective in the case. Mayor Pete O’Geary said City Manager Ray Griffin will check into the matter. The woman, Brenda Henderson, said her son Rakeem Lewis was struck by gunfire on June 13. “She has tried to contact the detective, left numerous calls,� Dale told the council, additionally claiming his attempts to obtain a response failed. “Not one phone call has been returned.� Police have said Lewis and Christal M. Watson were shot in their backs as they stood in the parking lot behind the convention center at 100 Wortham Court. During the Monday not that big of a guy that I feel that three cops or a stun gun should be pulled out on me,� Bryant claimed. “When they was taking me to the car, I asked one of the officers: I’m like, do y’all feel like ya’ll could do whatever you all want to people because y’all wear a badge?� Bryant claimed. Bryant claimed that the officer, who is a female, used the f-word in saying she and other officers do what they want to do. During the discussion Evans said, “That’s the surprising thing as far as I’m concerned: That a police officer here in Henderson would use that type of language.� “It happens a lot,� Bryant replied, additionally claiming he has witnessed young black men in Henderson who do not have a criminal record or are too young to have a record be treated similarly. Daye argued, “Our police officers is going to make our young people have some of the baddest tastes in their mouths and some of the baddest ways about them because, you know, nobody can take this kind of abuse. “And it’s just too much go-

Of the area where that incident occurred, Dale called for street lighting, arguing, “It is dark as night.� Dale, who has called for the firing of Police Chief Keith Sidwell, additionally took a verbal jab at Sidwell, who at a July 27 marathon council work session said crime is on the decrease in Henderson and expressed cautious optimism. “I’m trying to figure out what city or neighborhood are we in then, because I’m just not seeing it,� Dale argued. “I don’t if it’s politics or politrick.� An attempt to reach Sidwell before press time was unsuccessful.

appear in court for assault on a government official and claimed he will deny the charge. “But, depending on the judge that’s there — and I hate to say it, it’s not all white and black, because we’ve got some black judges now that won’t even consider giving black folks a break,� Evans claimed. Evans additionally claimed she has seen officers “where are some of ‘em are a little bit unfair,� but she has seen where some officers “will step up to the plate and do the right thing.� “But, in your case, we hear you,� Evans told Bryant. “And I believe we’re concerned about what you’re saying.� Evans made clear she is not saying all of the officers are bad. Dale, noting a previous incident involving himself and police, told the council, “I would hope and pray that, this time, something is going to be done and not these sort of ticky-tack letters that these citizens get in the mail.� “There are good white officers and there are good black officers. It’s a few select ones. Now, that’s it,� Dale argued. Dale on May 15 in court was found not guilty of an obstruction charge that had stemmed from allegedly interfering with a New Year’s Eve traffic stop at what was then the Fiddlestix convenience store off East Andrews Avenue. Dale afterward said he believed Sidwell should be fired and additionally accused police of conducting a vendetta against him. “You can’t even meet (with Sidwell). It’s like you’re in Alcatraz over there,� Dale claimed Monday about HPD headquarters, referring to the long-closed federal prison on an island in the San Francisco Bay.

Joe McBride’s family bought the paper in 1937 and has owned it since. The building that housed the newspaper dated from 1906, she said. Anadarko police have said the blaze was reported about 5 a.m. Saturday and destroyed the newspaper office and the Tornado Alley Bar. It took firefighters more than three hours to extinguish the fire, the cause of which has not been determined. No injuries were reported. The fire came a little more than three months after a tornado that hit Anadarko also damaged the Daily News building. Carolyn McBride said the newspaper does have insurance.

On Monday, in the alley behind the burned-out building, Daily News pressman Larry Botone surveyed the damage. The burned rolls of newsprint littered the alley, along with pieces of roofing that caved in during the fire. “I just got that sucker fixed,” he said of the Goss Community press. “I put new rollers in it. That Saturday paper was the best-looking paper we’d put out in a long time.” The fire happened during a busy news weekend in this town of about 6,600 people, located about 60 miles southwest of Oklahoma City. In addition to the fire, a pastor was found dead in her church building on Sunday morning. The homicide was the lead story in Monday’s paper, although the fire story also made the front page. The publisher said the Daily News bought new

computers and office supplies over the weekend for its temporary quarters. She said the Oklahoma Press Association offered the newspaper assistance in setting up computers, and the OPA’s executive director, Mark Thomas, visited the Daily News on Sunday and Monday. He brought a temporary “Anadarko Daily News” banner to hang in the windows of the temporary office. Before that, a notebook-size sheet of paper with the printed words “The Anadarko Daily News” was posted on the door. The staff used cell phones for work until land lines could be connected. “The paper won’t look normal for awhile,” Thomas said. “But this brings home the point that people depend on the paper more than they realize. These newspapers are the heartbeat of the community.”

Daily Meditation Thus saith the Lord of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by. Zechariah 3:7

Our Opinion


With a growing chorus of Americans — particularly senior citizens — voicing discontent about a sketchy but massive health care reform movement in Washington, D.C., this news couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Obama administration. The very same seniors who are worried about facing a so-called “death panel” to determine whether they receive expensive health care treatments found out on Monday that their Social Security checks next year will actually be smaller. The Social Security trustees project no cost of living adjustment (COLA) for the next two years, something that hasn’t happened since “automatic” increases were adopted in 1975. Those increases are, however, tied to inflation, which has been negative this year primarily due to much lower energy prices. By law, Social Security benefits cannot decrease, but since many seniors have their prescription medication premiums deducted from each month’s check — and those are due to go up — then those Social Security recipients will have less and less money in 2010 and 2011 on which to subsist. “I promise you, they count on that COLA,” said Barbara Kennelly, a former Democratic congresswoman from Connecticut who now leads the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. A flaw has always existed in the formula for determining COLA increases, and this year’s sharp decline in energy prices finally bared that woe to the world. Seniors don’t spend all that much of their incomes on fuel and home energy. But they spent more on health care than any other segment of the population, and health care costs are usually rising even faster than inflation. Meanwhile, Congress has long played dangerous games with Social Security, pilfering from the program over the years to pay for other items in the federal budget. And Social Security often has been described as history’s biggest Ponzi scheme. Economists argue over whether the moniker is fair, and the program doesn’t satisfy all the requirements of that particular brand of fraud that Bernie Madoff is rotting in a Butner prison cell for committing. However, one basic comparison between Social Security and a Ponzi scheme is quite true: Current benefits are not paid to each senior out of what he or she put into the program, but rather are collected from younger workers to send benefit checks to the retired. While such a scheme isn’t necessarily unsustainable, it’s looking like Social Security might be. The Chicago Tribune reported Sunday that the Social Security Administration admitted the time is growing near when there won’t be enough young workers paying into the system in order to support their elders. “In 2016 we will begin paying more in benefits than we collect in taxes,” the Tribune reported from Social Security documents. “Without changes, by 2037 the Social Security Trust Fund will be exhausted, and there will be enough money to pay only about 76 cents for each dollar of scheduled benefits.” In other words, without reforms — perhaps greatly increased Social Security taxes on current and future workers — within the next 30 years or so the shrunken Social Security checks of 2010-11 are going to seem like the good ol’ days. Advocates for seniors such as Kennelly are calling for a 1 percent (or more) COLA or onetime payments of $150 to try and offset any hardship seniors might suffer due to the zeroCOLA checks that are expected. But opponents note that seniors received a 5.8 percent increase in January (one of the larger hikes in the last 20 years), were given $250 checks as part of the Obama administration’s stimulus package, and are benefiting from decreases in consumer prices of other goods, even if health care keeps going up. “Seniors may perceive that they are being hurt because there is no COLA, but they are in fact not getting hurt,” said Andrew G. Biggs, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. “Congress has to be able to tell people they are not getting everything they want.” But when Congress just finished shelling out $3 billion to prod Americans into buying new cars and the Obama administration is trying to find $1 trillion to pay for its controversial health reforms, telling seniors to tough it out — that a 1 percent COLA is just too much to ask right now — will be a hard sell.

Trisha Babcock was twice the age of the person who allegedly shot and killed her. And she was only 24. Which makes the alleged “gunman” only 12. So here comes another handwringing debate over whether children are still children when they kill like adults. Try these sentences on for size: The kid was sixth-grade age. The kid was too young for a PG-13 movie without guidance. You hear that, you think “child.” Now try these sentences: The “kid” was 6-foot-2. He allegedly pointed a gun at close range and fired. Sounds pretty adult all of a sudden, doesn’t it? The problem is, all those sentences are true. Which is why it’s so mind-numbingly difficult to know what to do here. It’s why the father of the murdered girl told the media, “Part of me feels remorse for the kid because he’s so young, and then part of me wants to choke the living (expletive) out of him.” What do you do? Do you treat Demarco Harris, a 12-year-old, as an adult — and if found guilty imprison him for life?

Or do you say a child is a child, and if Harris is found guilty only put him away, at most, until he is 21, then set him free. On the one hand, it’s hard to argue that a 12-yearold is fully formed. Think back to when you were 12. Mitch How much Albom did you understand the ramifications of things? How much did you change in the years that followed? Throw in the world in which Harris lives, the prevalence of violence, the fast access to guns, and you easily could conclude that this is a tragic intersection of immaturity and a bullet. On the other hand, critics who say a 12-year-old doesn’t understand what he’s doing are, in my view, also a little off. This isn’t about understanding the ramifications of death. Heck, I’m not sure we ever understand the ramifications of death. Soldiers will tell you they only learn it Tribune Media Services

through war. Nurses will say they only learn it on the job. What Demarco Harris did wasn’t about understanding death. It was about understanding murder. And a 12-year-old is plenty old enough to know that murder is wrong, that it is illegal, that it is evil at its most vicious. If the 12-year-old doesn’t know that — and he doesn’t have a learning disability — then his parents did a pretty awful job. Which brings us, naturally, to the parents. It was Harris’ father who ultimately turned him in to the police. But what about before that? Where was the dad in keeping his son off the street after midnight? Where was he in keeping his son away from guns? How much guilt should the parents bear if a shooter is too young to accept the full punishment of his actions? And then there’s the victim. Trisha Babcock was, by most accounts, a smiling young woman who did nothing more than sit in a car at the wrong time. But nothing we do to Harris will bring Babcock back. On the other hand, when victims’ families cry for justice, they should not be dismissed as angry, upset or grieving. Justice matters. You

can’t just shrug and say, “Too bad your daughter got murdered by a 12-year-old. Maybe if the killer were older....” Babcock’s family has every right to expect her death to be acknowledged and balanced with severe punishment. It wasn’t an accident. It wasn’t a tree falling or a bolt of lightning hitting. It was murder. So what do you do? If you treat Harris as an adult, he might go away for the rest of his life. If you treat him as a juvenile, or even use the blended sentence option, he still will spend his formative years in the company of criminals. Does he have much chance of emerging as a solid citizen? Look how quickly Nathaniel Abraham, who killed a man when he was 11, was back in prison after being set free at 21. So add it all up. You have a kid who did or didn’t know better, spending nine years or the rest of his life locked up, surrounded by other criminals, and costing taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars every year. What do you do? There is no right answer. All we really know is that if a kid is out after midnight, carrying a gun, thinking about robbery, by the time he pulls the trigger, it already is too late.

Letters to the Editor Do your homework, President Obama To the editor:

Pistol-packing camera hogs It is disturbing to see protesters show up with guns at President Obama’s political events. Yet the practice is not illegal. It’s also old enough to have whiskers on it. In 1967, for example, about 30 members of a new organization called the Black Panther Party marched with rifles and shotguns into the California State Assembly in Sacramento to protest a proposed ban on carrying weapons in public. Yes, children, the ‘60s were not only about Woodstock. Imagine how today’s gunrights conservatives would react if, say, a group of armed Panthers showed up at a rally for, say, President George W. Bush or Sen. John McCain, last year’s Republican nominee. Conservatives already are hopping mad that Atorney General Eric Holder’s reluctance to prosecute a group that calls itself the New Black Panthers, for alleged voter intimidation at a Philadelphia polling place in November. The only weapon to be displayed in that episode, which is on YouTube, is a billy club. For the record, I oppose political intimidation by Panthers, old and new, for the same reasons that I oppose those who use the conspicuous display of firearms to get their point across these days. It’s reckless. Express your views, but leave your guns at home. Outside Obama’s speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Phoenix, a reported dozen protesters flaunted guns. One, an African American who identified himself only as “Chris,” strutted through the crowd with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle slung over his shoulder. I mention his race only to acknowledge that, contrary to media-generated stereotypes, organized gun lovers aren’t all conservative white guys. Parading with pistols and the like is legal under Arizona

law, Chris pointed out, and the rest of us should “get kind of conditioned to it.” Sure, he’s a patriotic American, he’ll tell you, yet he scoffs with remarkable ease at the sensibilities of a majority that doesn’t see things his way. Chris was not alone. He was invited by a friend, Ernest HanClarence cock, a rightwing Internet Page radio host Tribune Media who packed Services a holstered handgun at the event. He admitted on MSNBC that he was milking the protests as a publicity stunt. Congratulations. It worked. A week earlier William Kostric, with handgun strapped to his leg, famously held up a sign outside Obama’s health-care town hall in Portsmouth, N.H. The sign read, “It’s time to water the tree of liberty.” That’s a reference to Thomas Jefferson’s declaration that the tree “must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” That was also a favorite slogan of Timothy McVeigh, the Oklahoma City bomber. Kostric says he meant nothing intimidating, but I can take a hint. Like the Panthers and the self-styled Arizona patriots, Chris got his publicity. Somebody even started a “William Kostric for Congress” Facebook page. That’s the joy of the Internet age. No matter how far off the radar your views may be, you can find love on the Web. What do guns have to do with Obama’s proposed health-care overhaul? All three of the above men said they were freedomloving, tiny-government libertarians who righteously oppose the majority imposing its will

by “stealing” or “confiscating” the earnings of the minority, whether for health care or anything else. They’re entitled to their opinion. Yet they sound mightily reluctant in their zest for minority rights, to concede that if democracy is going to work, the majority rules. To his credit, Obama has refused to take the bait of such provocateurs. When asked, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs would only acknowledge that people are entitled to openly carry weapons outside presidential events if state and local laws allow it, and “(t)hose laws don’t change when the president comes to your state or locality.” That should help ease widespread fears among gun owners that the nation’s new liberal president is out to take their guns, although it won’t soothe the extremists. Sales of guns and ammos surged after Obama’s election, according to news reports, as they did in Bill Clinton’s presidential years. Democrats, it appears, are good for gun and ammo sales. Militia recruitment, too. That’s why some concerned members of Congress have recommended new steps such as widening the security perimeter around the president at public events. But the Secret Service already has the power to do that. There’s not much new that’s going to have much of an impact on those who pack iron for publicity, except some good old-fashioned ridicule and condemnation. This can best be meted out by responsible gun owners, whether in the National Rifle Association or elsewhere, who have enough sense to see that pistol-packing camera hogs don’t really help the cause of gun rights. E-mail Clarence Page at cpage@, or write to him c/o Tribune Media Services, 2225 Kenmore Ave., Suite 114, Buffalo, NY 14207.

It’s a funny thing, all this hoopla over 50 million Americans not covered by health insurance and the major crisis this country will have if we don’t get them covered. Apparently Obama and his cohorts don’t investigate or even read their own government reports before they start throwing numbers around. According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau Report on Health Insurance Coverage in the U.S., there are 45,657,000 persons uninsured. Of those uninsured 9,737,000, are not U.S. citizens, 8,488,000 have a household income over $50,000 and another 9,115,000 have a household income over $75,000 and could afford to purchase some type of health insurance but choose not to do so. That leaves 18,317,000 uninsured persons in the U.S. who might not be able to afford coverage. That figures out to be 5.55 percent of the population. By contrast the current unemployment rate is 9.5 percent. Could it be that the high unemployment rate is contributing to the number of people uninsured? The American people need jobs, not government controlled health care. Where are all the jobs the stimulus package was supposed to create? How did all the money wasted on big business bailouts and basically buying out G.M. help create jobs? Not to mention the billions of dollars for TARP bailing out big banks, AIG, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae? Get the unemployment rate back down to around 5 percent where it was under the Bush administration and the health insurance problem will take care of itself. The only reform needed for health care is tort reform and to open up interstate commerce to health insurance companies to create competition. Nothing the government runs is cost effective or efficient. To use Obama’s own words, “Look at FedEx and UPS, they are doing fine, the U.S. Post Office is the one in trouble all the time.” But then again, it’s not about health insurance, health care, or anything like it; it’s all about power over the people and making them more dependent on government. “A government that can give you everything you want is strong enough to take everything you have” — Thomas Jefferson. Jerry Prather, Vance County

DEAR ABBY: What is the protocol when parents dine out with their successful, married adult children and their spouses? As parents, are we expected to pay for their meals and costly alcoholic beverages for the rest of our lives? Or it is fair for these adult children — all of whom have well-paying jobs — to split the bill and tip with us? We feel each couple at the table should chip in and pay their share of the costs — whether it’s our adult kids or contemporaries — but we have been criticized for it. It has reached the point that my husband and I split an entree to keep our restaurant bill within reason. We’re approaching retirement age. Shouldn’t it beclient our choice whether we “treat”

Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, will fill Los Angeles, CA 90069.


DEAR ABBY: My former boss, “Ken,” is 30 years older than I am. We slept together several months ago while my boyfriend, “Vinny,” and I were separated. The affair was short-lived, and Vinny and I reconciled. When I discovered I was pregnant, Vinny and I eloped. Abby, I’m almost positive this is Vinny’s baby, but I’m not 100 percent sure, so I told him everything. Now Vinny wants me to tell Ken and his wife that I need a paternity test. I agree that Ken’s wife needs to know, but I’m afraid that bringing this out will bring some serious repercussions. What should I do? — NEEDS CLOSURE IN OHIO DEAR NEEDS CLOSURE: You and Vinny should have the DNA test performed. If it turns out the baby isn’t Vinny’s and you’re afraid to approach Ken and his wife for fear that Ken might retaliate in some way that could hurt your career, consult a lawyer before telling them about the upcoming blessed event. If Ken is the father, he has an obligation to support his child. And you’ll be doing the wife a favor, because if your former boss is the naughty boy I suspect he is, you aren’t the first woman he has had unprotected sex with, and she needs to be tested for STDs.



others to a meal or not? — PUZZLED IN LOUISIANA DEAR PUZZLED: Of course the choice should be yours. However, you created this “monster,” so it is up to you to set the record straight. The way to do that is to make clear to your successful adult children before their next bite that you are all adults now and that as adults they will be responsible for paying their part of the tab.


DEAR ABBY: Some friends and I shared a vacation house last month. While I was out hiking, a supposed friend, “Lynette,” rummaged through my purse (which had been stashed in a closet) and made a non-emergency phone call on my cell. She didn’t tell me about it. I found out on my own. It’s not that I mind her using my phone, but a purse is private, and I felt violated. Let me add that she also knew about an article I had packed in Dear a zipped Abby pouch that U niversal Press I keep in my beach Syndicate bag. I don’t know why she snooped through my stuff. Am I wrong to be upset? And do you think this “friendship” is worth continuing? — LIVID IN LEXINGTON, KY. DEAR LIVID: Are you wrong to be upset? No. And the friendship is only worth continuing if you set some boundaries, because Lynette appears not to understand the concept of privacy.

Ten years ago: The FBI, reversing itself after six years, admitted that its agents might have fired some potentially flammable tear gas canisters on the final day of the 1993 standoff with the Branch Davidians near Waco, Texas, but said it continued to believe law enforcement agents did not start the fire which engulfed the cult’s compound. Five years ago: An Army investigation found that 27 people attached to an intelligence unit at Abu Ghraib prison near Baghdad either approved or participated in the abuse of Iraqi prisoners.

TUESDAY Late Evening


On this date: In 1875, Capt. Matthew Webb became the first person to swim across the English Channel, getting from Dover, England, to Calais, France, in 22 hours. In 1916, the National Park Service was established within the Department of the Interior. In 1921, the United States signed a peace treaty with Germany. In 1928, an expedition led by Richard E. Byrd set sail from Hoboken, N.J., on its journey to Antarctica. In 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed a measure providing pensions for former U.S. presidents and their widows. In 1984, author Truman Capote was found dead in a Los Angeles mansion; he was 59.


Today’s Highlight: On Aug. 25, 1944, during World War II, Paris was liberated by Allied forces after four years of Nazi occupation.


Today is Tuesday, Aug. 25, the 237th day of 2009. There are 128 days left in the year.

One year ago: Democrats opened their national convention in Denver, where they prepared to nominate Barack Obama for president; in the first major address of the gathering, Michelle Obama declared, “I love this country” as she described herself as a daughter, a sister, a wife and a mother, no different from many women. Israel freed nearly 200 jailed Palestinians in a goodwill gesture hours before U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice began her peace mission to the region.

More injuries for Panthers: Godfrey out with broken hand By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTE — Add a broken hand to the growing list of injuries depleting the Carolina Panthers’ troubled defense. Starting free safety Charles Godfrey underwent surgery Monday to repair a broken bone in his right hand, two days after he was injured in an exhibition loss to Miami. Coach John Fox wouldn’t say how long Godfrey, a 2008 third-round round pick from Iowa who started all 16 games last season, will be out. But with his backup, Nate Salley, still sidelined with a sore knee, the Panthers scrambled to sign veteran safety Kevin Kaesviharn on Monday. Receiver Jason Carter was waived to make room for the Kaesviharn, who was escorted to the practice field early in Carolina’s practice. The Panthers were already

without Pro Bowl middle linebacker Jon Beason, who sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee on Saturday. Defensive tackle Maake Kemoeatu tore his right Achilles’ tendon in the first training camp practice and is lost for the season. Godfrey may be able to return for the regular-season opener wearing a cast, but Quinton Teal will likely immediately move into Carolina’s starting lineup next to strong safety Chris Harris. Kaesviharn could be an option, too. “He’s a veteran safety that we think can step in and help us,” Fox said. “He’s got some catching up to do, but he’s proven he can play.” Kaesviharn, who turns 33 Saturday, helped beat the Panthers on a bizarre play in the 2006 season.

Southern’s Shauna Terry spikes the ball off the hands of a Person County defender during the Raiders’ 3-0 loss to the Rockets Monday afternoon.

Raiders rocked by Rockets By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor

Southern Vance led in all three sets against Person County Monday. Unfortunately for the Raiders, they didn’t win any of them. The Rockets swept the Raiders (25-21, 25-18, 25-23) to give them their first loss at home this season. Southern is coming off an appearance at the Best of Best tournament in Davidson where they finished fourth out of 10 teams. Each match at the tournament was best-of-three. After tough weekend competition, Southern had to face the Rockets — a team that advanced to the second round of the 4A state tournament last year and finished 2008 with a 20-4 record. Raider coach Tracey Turner attributed the loss to a “lack of focus from the very beginning.” Turner said she could tell the team wasn’t working well from the pre-game warm-up. “I saw everyone on different pages and they just had a difficult time coming together even


Southern's Ashley Meador dives for the ball during Monday’s game. before the game started,” she said. Turner also noted several unforced errors by her team. “I hadn’t seen them not trusting each other to do their job.” Turner said she saw players hitting out of place. “But that’s a trust issue, and that’s just lack of focus and

not knowing who’s in there — they’re doing the job, you know they’ve got your back.” Shauna Terry opened up set one with a kill, but the Rockets scored the next four to make it 4-1. Another Terry kill later made it 12-12, and a Julia Sumner ace made it 13-12 Southern. The Raiders increased their lead to 19-13, but the Rockets rallied. They went on a 7-1 run to take the 21-20 advantage and all the momentum on their way to a 25-21 set win. Southern led early in set two as well, scoring the first three points on their way to a 5-3 run. “At the beginning of all three of those sets we had the momentum,” Turner said. But again Person would take the lead. Tremanisha Taylor tied it up at 9 with a kill, and another Taylor kill made it 11-9, but the Rockets tied it at 12 and 13 before taking the game over again. They rallied to a 21-14 advantage and held on for the 25-18 win. Please see RAIDERS, page 3B

Southern solid in season opener From STAFF REPORTS

Southern coach Mike Rotolo said he sees “a lot of good things happening right now” with his Raiders soccer team. The Raiders saw a lot of good things Monday night in their 9-2 season-opening rout of visiting Person County. Joel-Lopez Hernandez scored the hat trick with three goals. Michael Lopez added two. Eder Burgara, Cameron Eatmon, Carlton Hawthorne and Humberto Salazar each scored a goal. Marco Hernandez had three assists. Goalie George Richardson stopped several shots at pointblank range. Rotolo said the win gives him “some ammo” with his team going into tomorrow’s practice — the first with school in session. Sixteen players dressed for the Raiders Monday night, and Rotolo said he expects 10 more to attend Tuesday’s practice.

Vikings come up short, 3-2 vs. Franklin Academy By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor

Northern Vance and Franklin Academy got all their scoring done in the first half. The Patriots took a 3-2 lead into halftime, and blanked the Vikings in the second half to hold on for the win. Northern falls to 0-1-1 on the season. Vikings coach David Hicks said following the game that his guys needs to start playing like a team. “I told them when we start (practice) tomorrow at 4:15, I’m looking to have some team players and not 19 individuals,” Hicks said. “And right now, we just have some personalities — they’re spending more time almost working against each other than they are working together. And we’ve got to change that quick.” Franklin got on the board quickly to open the game. Alan Oudjit’s kick deflected off of goalkeeper Aaron Daeke, but he knocked his own rebound into the net a little less than two minutes in. Northern received a point with an own-goal at minute 8. Kevin Byrom’s throw landed right into the crowd gathered in front of the goal, and deflected off a Patriot’s head and in for the score. Byrom assisted on a goal eight minutes later with a pretty pass to brother Ethan, who put it in to give Northern the 2-1 advantage. Kevin Byrom looked to have another shot at minute 27, and it passed by the out-stretched arms of the Franklin keeper but sailed wide of the goal. The Patriots cleared the ball before

the Vikings could follow up on the shot attempt. Franklin’s Ian Hunt tied it at 2 with 9:30 left in the half when his kick got past a diving Daeke. The last goal of the night came at minute 37, scored by Franklin’s Ian Draughn. Northern had several shots attempted in the second half, but most sailed high or wide. The Franklin keeper made a few saves. “We had spurts of two or three minutes of working together, and then 10 minutes of ‘I’m going to keep it, I’m not passing it,’” said Hicks. “You can’t do that in this game. It doesn’t work.” Kevin Byrom’s shot was deflected by the keeper at minute 52. Ethan Byrom had another one stopped four minutes later, and Kevin fired one that was too high at minute 58. With about seven minutes to play, Northern had a look on a corner kick play, but it was cleared by a Franklin player in the group gathered in front of the net. The Patriots cleared another Northern play near the net in the last few seconds — a throwin near the goal. Northern will have one practice today before they travel to Northern Nash Wednesday. “It’s not like we’re going play the cream puffs of eastern North Carolina. (Northern Nash is) a very strong program,” said Hicks. “But you know, we’ll find out a little bit more about how much we want to play together. That’s my concern right now.” Contact the writer at erobinson@

MLB Wagner wants option declined to OK trade NEW YORK (AP) — Billy Wagner wants to be a closer next season, regardless of which team he’s on. That’s why the New York Mets reliever says Boston must guarantee it will decline his contract option for 2010 before he would approve a potential trade this week to the Red Sox, who already have an All-Star closer in Jonathan Papelbon. “I don’t want to end my career as a setup man,” Wagner said. “I’d like to have that option.” Wagner has a no-trade clause in his contract, which includes an $8 million option for next year with a $1 million buyout. If his option is declined, he can become a free agent in the offseason and sign with any team. Wagner confirmed Monday that Boston placed a waiver claim on him last Friday. The fourth-place Mets have until Tuesday to trade him to the Red Sox, pull him back off waivers or assign him to Boston for nothing in return. If the Mets pull Wagner back, they can’t trade him for the rest of the season. If they let him go to Boston, the Red Sox would be responsible for the nearly $3.5 million owed to Wagner under his current contract.

Ravens frustrate Sanchez in 24-23 win over Jets By DAVID GINSBURG AP Sports Writer

BALTIMORE — It didn’t take long for Mark Sanchez to find out what New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan already knew: The Baltimore Ravens have a wickedly efficient defense. Vying to become the Jets starting quarterback, Sanchez got off to a wretched start and finished with a flourish in a 24-23 preseason loss Monday night. Sanchez’s first pass was intercepted and returned for a touchdown. His second pass was nearly picked off. On his final play, however, the rookie threw his first NFL touchdown pass — a 19-yarder to running back Leon Washington with 5:50 left in the second quarter. “Not the best start on Monday night, but I learned quite a bit,” Sanchez said at halftime. “I just want to get better.” Long after Sanchez departed, third-string quarterback Erik Ainge scored on a sneak with 22 seconds left to get the Jets to 24-23. Ryan called for a 2-point conversion that failed. Sanchez, drafted fifth overall out of Southern California, went 3 for 8 for

New York cornerback James Ihedigbo is stopped by Baltimore offensive tackle Joe Reitz after an interception during the third quarter of Monday’s game. 43 yards in his first NFL start. He didn’t experience success until the Ravens removed several players from the first-team defense, including middle linebacker Ray Lewis. “You put a young guy like Sanchez in there and you see our defense, it can be difficult,” Lewis said. “You saw his eyes get

big, and he was jumping around in the pocket. Bottom line, we gave a lot of looks and disguises and we confused him a little bit.” Kellen Clemens, who started New York’s other exhibition game, was 5 for 10 for 60 yards. Like Sanchez, he had an interception returned for a touchdown and threw

a TD pass (a 28-yarder to David Clowney in the third quarter). Ryan spent 10 years working with the Baltimore defense before accepting the job with New York. As if to prove they could survive without him, the Ravens returned two interceptions for scores (the other off Clemens), forced two fumbles and had a sack. “I don’t care if you’ve coached for us or not, when you play against our defense, it’s tough,” Lewis said. Sanchez probably couldn’t have envisioned a worse beginning. After opening with a handoff, he threw a short pass while being hit in the stomach by Lewis. The ball was intercepted by Haloti Ngata, who rumbled 25 yards for a touchdown to make it 7-0 with 52 seconds elapsed. “I just jumped up, and it hit my stomach,” the 345-pound Ngata said. “My stomach swallowed it, and I caught the ball.” Sanchez’s second pass was dropped in the flat by Lewis, who had plenty of open field in front of him. “I could’ve caught it, but I didn’t want that one until the regular season,” Lewis said.

Source: Beasley checks into rehab facility By TIM REYNOLDS AP Sports Writer

MIAMI — Michael Beasley told his personal manager several days ago that he was working out in Houston because it brought “a change of scenery” from Miami and Washington. What happened next is a mystery, even to those who know Beasley best. The Miami Heat forward checked into a Houston rehabilitation facility last week and is being treated for various issues, including depression, a person briefed on the situation told The Associated Press on Monday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of privacy concerns, and could not say whether the other issues included drug or alcohol treatment. “Based on what I’m getting right now, there’s a bit of concern,” Bruce Shingler, Beasley’s manager, told The AP in a telephone interview. “I don’t really know what’s going on. I just know his mom is on her way to go see him in Houston. That’s it. I’m still collecting a lot of information.” It’s unknown how long Beasley will remain at the facility, or whether he will be available when the Heat open training camp on Sept. 28. Shingler also said he

wasn’t sure how long Beasley has been in Houston, or specifically why that was his destination. “From what I know, he was just getting ready for the upcoming season,” Shingler said. “The last time I talked to him, everything was going well. All this rehab and all that, I was totally unaware. It all started as he wanted to go work out in a different place because he wanted to get away. Now this, I don’t know what’s going on.” The spiral appears to have started in earnest Friday, when a photo of the No. 2 pick in the 2008 NBA draft was posted to his Twitter account, in which Beasley displayed a new tattoo across his shoulders. The image also captured what appeared to be a small plastic bag on an adjacent table, the contents of which were unclear. Beasley was already getting treatment when the photograph — and several comments, including “Feelin like it’s not worth livin!!!!!!! I’m done” and “I feel like the whole world is against me I can’t win for losin” — were posted on the feed. Beasley’s account has since been closed. Another account he used was shut down July 27. “What Michael Jr. is going (through) is just a bump on the road we call

life,” said a posting Monday on Michael Beasley Sr.’s Twitter feed. “Please pray for him, he needs it.” A phone call to Beasley Sr.’s home in Bowie, Md., went unanswered. Yahoo! Sports first reported Beasley entered a rehab facility. Beasley finished his rookie season as Miami’s second-leading scorer behind Dwyane Wade, averaging 13.9 points and 5.4 rebounds. He spent much of the year as a reserve, and both Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and team president Pat Riley talked often this summer about utilizing Beasley more this coming season at small forward and power forward. “Beas, we hope that we’re going to see a lot of him at the 3 spot,” Riley said in a conference call with the team’s beat writers earlier this month. At times this past season, Beasley’s immaturity was of some

concern to teammates. He typically laughed off such criticism, saying he was young and acting accordingly. “The guy’s got a lot of talent,” Wade told The AP during a July conversation on a number of topics, including Beasley’s potential. “I can’t wait to see what he does with it. He’s 20 years old. I’d love to see it all come together this year.” Beasley’s second season, much like his first pro year, is off to an ominous start. Beasley was fined $50,000 by the NBA last September after security officers at the league’s rookie symposium detected the scent of marijuana in a hotel room occupied by Beasley, Mario Chalmers, Darrell Arthur and two women. Chalmers and Arthur were fined $20,000; Beasley drew the stiffer fine for at first trying to hide his presence from NBA officials.

Howard homers twice for Phillies in win over Mets Phillies 6, Mets 2 NEW YORK (AP) — Ryan Howard homered twice and drove in five runs, Cliff Lee won his eighth straight start and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the New York Mets 6-2 on Monday. Lee (5-0) did not allow an earned run in seven innings, lowering his ERA with the Phillies to 0.68 in five outings since he was acquired in a July 29 trade with Cleveland. His record is 12-9 overall. One day after second baseman Eric Bruntlett became the second major leaguer to end a game with an unassisted triple play, the Phillies beat their injury-riddled rivals in more conventional fashion. Lee, last year’s AL Cy Young Award winner, yielded six hits and no walks against a light-hitting lineup that featured Fernando Tatis (six homers) in the cleanup spot. The left-hander struck out five. Philadelphia took the final three in a four-game series and won for the 11th time in 13 games overall, increasing its NL East lead to seven games over idle Atlanta. The defending World Series champions are 40-

21 on the road, the best mark in the majors. They have won 14 of their last 20 away from home. Incredibly, the fourthplace Mets received more bad injury news. Right fielder Jeff Francoeur, their most productive hitter of late, sat out with a torn ligament in his left thumb. New York said he is day-to-day. Francoeur, obtained in a trade with the Braves last month, got hurt Sunday while making a diving catch. X-rays were negative, but his thumb swelled up afterward and he went to the hospital Monday for an MRI that revealed the tear.

Yovani Gallardo (1210) gave up one run on four hits and four walks in five innings. He struck out eight.

DENVER (AP) — Former AL MVP Jason Giambi signed a minor league contract with the Colorado Rockies on Monday, and he could be back in the major leagues in as little as a week. The 38-year-old Giambi reported to Triple-A Colorado Springs, where he hit several home runs during batting practice Monday night. He said his troublesome right thigh was painfree and that he was hoping for a Sept. 1 call-up to help the Rockies with their pennant push. “I’m going to get a few atbats down here and see how I feel. It’s up to them when I get called up,” Giambi said. “They’re playing great baseball. I definitely don’t want to go in there and disturb what they’re doing.” Colorado went into Monday night’s game against San Francisco with a three-game lead in the NL wild-card race. “I was honored they called in the middle of a pennant race,” said Giambi, who wasn’t in the lineup against Reno on Monday night because he hadn’t taken his physical. “They asked me if I wanted to go

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Michel Hernandez hit a pair of sac flies, the last giving Durham the lead for good in the eighth on Monday in a 3-2 victory over Syracuse. Durham set up the eventual winning run in the eighth when Reid Brignac singled to right to start the frame against Josh Wilkie (2-1), and Justin Ruggiano was hit by a pitch. Shawn Riggans then bunted into a 1-5 fielder’s

choice. With Hernandez at the plate, Ruggiano stole his team-leading 21st base, and Hernandez followed with a sac fly to right on the next pitch. Syracuse did put the tying run at third in the bottom of the frame against Andy Sonnanstine (5-3). Ian Desmond tripled into the right field corner with one out, ending a string of 13 straight retired by Sonnanstine. Winston Abreu came in and struck out Jhonatan Solano, and got Norris Hopper to fly to

right. Abreu now has left 12 of 12 inherited runners on base for Durham. He then pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his 12th save, striking out the last two batters. Durham had tied the game with a two-run sixth on a base hit by Riggans (2-for-4) and a sac fly by Hernandez, who also threw out two would-be base stealers. Riggans and Joe Dillon each had two hits for the Bulls (72-58), who are now 2.5 games ahead of Syracuse (69-60) for the wild

card lead, and five games in front of Norfolk and Toledo with 14 games left. Durham is three games behind Gwinnett in the division race, pending the outcome of game two of the Braves’ double header with Charlotte. Durham wraps up a four-game series on Tuesday with righty Jeremy Hellickson on the mound against lefty Horacio Ramirez.

Red Sox rally past White Sox; Rays rough up Halladay Red Sox 12, White Sox 8 BOSTON (AP) — Jose Contreras’ two-out error on a slow roller led to six runs in the third inning and the Boston Red Sox extended their offensive surge with a 12-8 win over the Chicago White Sox on Monday night. Boston scored at least 11 runs for the third time in four games as Mike Lowell and J.D. Drew homered in the first meeting of the year between the teams, the latest they’ve ever faced each other for the first time. Ramon Ramirez (7-3) pitched 1 2-3 innings for the win after starter Clay Buchholz was lifted with two outs in the fifth following Paul Konerko’s three-run homer that made it 9-7. Contreras (5-12) allowed only one earned run but contributed greatly to all seven he allowed in 2 2-3 innings.

The Rays, who came in three games behind Boston in the AL wild card, snapped a four-game road losing streak. Toronto has lost nine of 12 and fell to 3-10 against Tampa Bay this season.

Rays 12, Blue Jays 7 TORONTO (AP) — Carlos Pena and Ben Zobrist each homered and the Tampa Bay Rays handed Toronto’s Roy Halladay his worst loss in more than two years, beating the slumping Blue Jays 12-7 on Monday night. Halladay allowed eight runs — seven earned — runs in losing for the third time in five starts against the Rays this season. Zobrist finished 3 for 4 with two RBIs and Jason Bartlett had three hits with an RBI, raising his average to .343, as the Rays won for the seventh time in nine games.

Indians 10, Royals 6 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Travis Hafner and Luis Valbuena each hit three-run homers, powering Cleveland past the hapless Kansas City Royals 10-6 Monday night. Hafner drove in four runs, tacking on an RBI double to sink the Royals even deeper into the AL Central basement. The Royals took a 5-4 lead in the seventh on Yuniesky Betancourt’s sacrifice fly off Jeremy Sowers. But Kansas City closer Joakim Soria (3-2), who does not usually come in before the ninth, started the eighth and gave up singles to Jhonny Peralta and Hafner before Valbuena hit a 1-1 pitch over the fence in right for a 7-5 lead. Soria, an All-Star closer in 2008, blew his third save in 23 chances and Kansas City lost its fifth in a row.

Jason Kubel drove in the go-ahead run and Alexi Casilla tripled and scored on a wild pitch from Baltimore rookie Chris Tillman in the sixth inning. Minnesota matched its season-high winning streak of four as it tries to keep pace with Detroit and the Chicago White Sox in the American League Central. Baker (12-7) retired 10 consecutive Orioles at one point. After scoring the game’s first run in the top of the third inning, the Orioles would get only one more runner in scoring position until the ninth.

Taylor’s kill in set three made it 8-6, but it was the last time the Raiders would lead in the set. They tied it at 16 and 19, but couldn’t regain the edge over the Rockets. Terry had two big blocks to bring the Raiders within one at 24-23, but the Rockets won the next point to put it away.

for us.” Tracy has tried to give Helton regular rests this season so he doesn’t have a recurrence of the back problems that plagued him last season, when he was limited to 83 games. “As we go down the stretch, if Todd gets to where he absolutely needs a day, you have a guy who you can play there,” Tracy said. “You don’t have to completely tinker with the

lineup and have guys hitting in all kinds of different spots.” Helton, who leads the Rockies with a .321 average, is happy with the signing. “He’s been there and done it,” Helton said. “He’s not going to be in awe of anything. When he walks up the plate you know he can hit a home run.” Giambi said he has no expectations beyond doing whatever he can to help the Rockies reach the playoffs for the second time in three years. “There is no small role for a team in a pennant race,” he said. “I’ve been in a lot of them in my career. The Rockies have a great ballclub. It seems like they have a great clubhouse. I know a lot of the guys and it would just be fun to be part of the ballclub — even if it’s giving high-fives.” Giambi was cut by Oakland earlier this month after hitting .193 with 11 home runs and 40 RBIs. He had been on the disabled list because of a strained right quadriceps before the A’s released him, cutting short the struggling slugger’s return to his first major league club.

Ryan Moore gets a lesson in patience at Wyndham By JOEDY McCREARY AP Sports Writer

GREENSBORO — For Ryan Moore, the Wyndham Championship was a lesson in patience. He spent much of the week sitting around the clubhouse while thunderstorms produced three unwelcome delays. Then he finished his final round and wound up waiting again, this time to find out if a playoff was necessary. That patience paid off Sunday in his first PGA Tour victory, when Moore birdied the third hole of a sudden death playoff to beat Kevin Stadler. “I was able to stay patient, really,” Moore said. “That’s what won this one.” After vaulting up the leaderboard with five consecutive birdies on the back nine, he had two chances in the playoff to seal the victory after his approach on No. 18 landed in the middle of the green and rolled to 6 feet. He sank that putt for his first victory in his 112th event. Stadler’s second shot on the third playoff hole skipped off the back of the green. He chipped within 20 feet, but his putt drifted to the low side of the cup.

Rose (68) were at 266. Moore and Stadler both bogeyed No. 18 in regulation. Moore sailed his drive near the cart path. His second shot bounced into the sand and — after a remarkable bunker chip to 8 feet — his short par putt bent left around the hole. The younger Stadler’s third shot landed on a hill behind the green but rolled back to 8 feet from the flagstick, but he left his par putt about 6 inches short. “I can’t play that hole,” Stadler said. “I’ll just leave it that.” Moore shot a 65 in the final round and had five consecutive birdies on Nos. 12-16 in moving to 17 under, then waited while Stadler finished his finalround 66 that included back-to-back birdies on Nos. 14 and 15. Bohn — who started the round seven strokes off the lead — had a 62 that was the best round of the day. He followed birdies on seven of his first 14 holes with an eagle that pushed him to 16 under, grabbed the lead with a par on No. 16 and didn’t miss a green until No. 17. He had roughly an hour’s wait — a common

theme at this rain-deluged tournament — while Moore and Stadler finished their rounds. “I wasn’t even thinking I would get in a playoff,” Bohn said. Stadler was attempting to join his father — 13-time PGA winner Craig Stadler — in winning in Greensboro. The elder Stadler cruised to a six-stroke victory in the Greater Greensboro Open in 1980. The participants in the playoff had combined for one previous victory on Tour: Bohn’s win in the 2005 B.C. Open. Garcia could have joined them in sudden death, had he holed a 35-yard bunker shot on No. 18. His chip rolled within an inch of the cup. “I wish I could blame it on that but, unfortunately, it happened before that,” Garcia said. Fittingly, a tournament that had trouble getting itself started seemingly didn’t want to end, either. Play stopped and started three times during the first three days due to lightning and heavy rains. The combined 9 1/2 hours in weather delays meant none of the first three rounds finished before sundown,

That cleared the way for Moore to make his first putt, pick up $918,000 and claim 500 FedEx Cup points for winning the final tournament before the playoffs start later this week. “This felt like an uphill battle,” said Moore, who turned pro in 2005. “The whole time I’ve been on the PGA Tour, I just haven’t been healthy, haven’t felt like myself, and really kind of got some good momentum (finishing tied for 10th) at the U.S. Open, really feeling like myself again over the golf ball, and just kind of getting some confidence back in the putter and every aspect of the game. That’s really carried through to this week.” Stadler, Moore and Jason Bohn forced the playoff after they were tied at 16-under 264 through 72 holes. Bohn was eliminated on the first playoff hole after he had trouble escaping the greenside bunker on No. 18 and his first try rolled back into the sand. Sergio Garcia blew a three-stroke lead midway through the final round, shot a 70 and finished at 265. Michael Allen (68), Kevin Sutherland (66), Fred Couples (67), Brandt Snedeker (68) and Justin

forcing players to return to the Donald Ross-designed course at Sedgefield each morning to finish their rounds. For a while, Garcia’s eighth PGA Tour victory seemed a near-certainty. He started the final round sharing the lead with Chris Riley at 15 under before building his three-stroke lead midway through the round, moving to 18 under

through seven holes after three consecutive birdies. Garcia has held at least a share of the 54-hole lead seven times in his career but has just two wins to show for it. He had three bogeys in a five-hole stretch between Nos. 8-12 to fall back. “When I was 3 under for the day, I still wasn’t comfortable,” Garcia said. “I felt like I was fighting myself.”

THAT SCRAMBLED WORD GAME by Mike Argirion and Jeff Knurek

RALCOR NEW Jumble iPhone App go to:

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

A: HER Yesterday’s

(Answers tomorrow) SKIMP CROTCH PENURY Jumbles: MIRTH Answer: Why the “fairy princess” went to the photo store — FOR HER “PRINTS”


Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). Because your mind is spinning on important matters, you’re not so easy to get to know right now. The new people you meet will probably find you to be complex and enigmatic. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There is excitement in the air. Intriguing offers come your way, but you must act quickly or they disappear. Keep in mind that if something is meant to be, it happens quickly. Avoid going on a wild chase. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A relationship takes your focus. You may be content with the way things are, but that doesn’t mean you don’t want to make them even better. When both people feel this way, you will create something marvelous together. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You don’t take yourself too seriously, which is why others will do just that. Your irresistible charm seems to happen without you being conscious of it. You’re not trying hard, but you’re winning anyway. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Don’t let the demands of work get in the way of your freedom-loving spirit. There is a way to have your cake and eat it, too — it just requires that you get very creative and perhaps a bit sneaky, too. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may feel drawn to studying obscure topics. You can’t currently imagine how such intellectual pursuits will broaden your social horizons. There are those out there who will love to learn your views and share their own.





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





LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Even though you are quick to laugh, relatively easy to please, and generally low-maintenance emotionally, you are still a complex individual. The one who understands that will steal your heart. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You trust the experts. You don’t need or want to know how everything comes together, but some people will want to explain every detail to you anyway. If you can grin and bear it, there will be something interesting in it for you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When a couple is not getting along well, it affects everyone else around them. The tension is palpable. Steer toward those who are in harmony with each other and you’ll feel happy. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You enjoy jigsaw puzzles, just as long as they have all their pieces. There’s something to figure out today. It will be a bit of work. Before you start, make sure the end result will be worthwhile. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your free time is yours alone. Let no one lay claim to your schedule. And you really shouldn’t have to account for your whereabouts at every turn either. Reclaim some of your autonomy. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your communication skills will be tested. You may encounter someone who makes you nervous and then it’s more difficult to send a clear and strong message. Think of this as a drill. You’re constantly improving.
