Official: Cause of fire suspicious Hoops court forum

Building not occupied when blaze started By DAVID IRVINE Daily Dispatch Writer

AFTON — An early morning fire destroyed a grocery store in southern Warren County on Friday. The fire at the Hautar Grocery began about 4:25 a.m., according to Warren County Emergency Services Director Chris Wright. The building is a total loss, Wright said. No one was in the building at the time. The store is located at 3305 U.S. Highway 401 South near the Franklin County line. Responding to the fire were the Afton-Elberon, Cokesbury, Warrenton Rural, Epsom, and Goldsand Volunteer Fire Departments. The building is owned by Laura Tyson and leased to a person she identified as Hautar. She was unsure of Hau-

The meeting was set by Powell at a Friday morning session of the committee. The court has been a subject of concern because of disorders and loitering by illegal drug dealers. At the start of the session, Powell turned to Police Chief John Wolford, who said that, while the Police Department has had “periodic” issues hinging on illegal activities, the majority of those at the court are there to play basketball. “I don’t think, frankly, it’s in our best interest to close that basketball court down as we are regularly

Boy missing in rough Counties to get lottery surf caused by Danny money for construction By KEVIN MAURER Associated Press Writer

CAROLINA BEACH — People on the East Coast warily eyed the approaching Tropical Storm Danny, which reinforced the dangers of even a weakening storm after a young boy went missing Friday in rough surf. From the Carolinas to New England, forecasters called for a second consecutive weekend of choppy seas, dangerous rip currents and heavy rains as Danny was expected to pass to the east of the mainland today. Storm-agitated waters were already proving dangerous Friday along North Carolina’s Outer Banks, where the Coast Guard and local authorities spent hours searching for a 12-year-old boy who disappeared while bodyboarding. The boy’s mother reported seeing him go

underwater off the town of Corolla and the board washing ashore without him. Coast Guard spokesman Lt. j.g. Scott Hembrook said the waves in the area weren’t that high, only about 4 to 6 feet tall. “What the storm is doing is creating a particularly strong undertow” that can pull swimmers to the bottom, he said. Undertow is created as water that’s crashed onshore rushes back out to sea. Farther north, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation announced that it will close beaches in five communities today until further notice. The agency also canceled all public ferry service in and around Boston for today, citing potential high seas, strong currents and heavy rain. State authorities urged boaters to have their

RALEIGH — Gov. Beverly Perdue said Friday that county governments would receive nearly $38 million in lottery funds earmarked for school construction that she held back six months ago to manage the state’s budget woes. The money, generated from profits by the North Carolina Education Lottery, had been intercepted by Perdue along with several hundred million dollars from other dedicat-

ed pots of public funds to ensure she could pay state expenses. Perdue ended up having to close a $3.2 billion shortfall for the year ending June 30. “I had to turn over every stone to pay North Carolina’s bills — to pay teachers, to keep schools and other core services running,” Perdue said in a statement. Now that the books are closed on last fiscal year, Perdue said there was money left over so she could release the $37.6 million in construction funds next week to sup-

(Working on Wellness!) and the Vance and Granville county commissioners have announced an “Eat Mary Helen Smart, Jones Move More” Cooperative miniExtension grant program for 2009-2010. These grants, based on availability of funds, will be awarded to community partners to address the goals and objectives of “Eat Smart, Move More: North Carolina’s Plan to Prevent Overweight, Obesity and Related Chronic Diseases.” This program is a repeat of last year’s successful program that funded 11 organizations in the two counties.

According to Jackie Sergent, health promotion coordinator with the Granville-Vance District Health Department, grants will be given to approximately 10 community partners (five per county) for a maximum amount of $1,500 each. The estimated start date is Nov. 2 with the grant period ending on April 30, 2010.

Grant requirements Mini-grant recipients are asked to develop sustainable policy and environmental changes that will help county residents become more physically active and make healthier food choices. Any county organization (such as schools, businesses, governmental agencies, churches or nonprofits) that has the ability to impact at least 100 people with its activities, can sustain the implemented policy or environmental change, and will report on the outcome of their efforts is eligible to apply.

Application process An information session will be held in each county for those interested in

learning more about the mini-grant requirements and obtaining an application packet. The Granville County information session will be on Sept. 21 at 4 p.m. in the Granville County Commissioners’ meeting room at 145 Williamsboro St., Oxford. The Vance County session will be on Sept. 24 at 4 p.m. at the H. Leslie Perry Memorial Library, 205 Breckenridge St., Henderson.

County award program To further support the program in our counties, both Granville and Vance County commissioners have instituted an annual “Eat Smart Move More”

‘Aging with Gusto’ workshop set for Sept. 15 at Oxford Baptist Church The Vance County Senior Center is coordinating plans to take a group to Granville County on Sept. 15 (please note corrected date) to attend the “Aging With Gusto (Getting Older … and Better)” workshop at the Oxford Baptist Church.

Award Program. Three awards were given by each board of commissioners in July to recognize organizations that have implemented sustainable changes that make it easier for residents to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Granville County awardees were the Oxford Parks and Recreation Department, R.J. Blackley Alcohol and Drug Treatment Center, and Christian Faith Center. Vance County awardees were Western Vance High School, Community Workforce Solutions, and Zeb-Vance Elementary School. While 2008-09 minigrant recipients were this year’s winners, any organization (whether funded or not) is eligible to submit a description in May 2010 of their wellness activities in order to be recognized. The cooperative extension centers in Granville and Vance counties partner with the GranvilleVance District Health Department to promote eating smart and moving more. Anyone interested in being part of the effort can call Joan Reid at (919) 603-1350 or Mary Helen Jones at 438-8188.

Read with toddlers and preschoolers! It is never too early or late to read with your children. If possible, start reading to them as babies. Even

if they don’t understand the words, they are absorbing the sounds. Toddlers have a short attention span and may not want to sit still to read. Let them move around as you continue to read to them. Preschool-

ers will often look at the pictures and make up their own story. Let them do this without correction — it encourages creativity.

As for a solution to dealing with those who may not be there to use the court, Wolford said he believes there probably needs to be some kind of supervision. “Do I think it needs to be the police? I’m not so sure,” Wolford said. Powell has been emphasizing his belief in the need for adult oversight of the court. Wolford suggested possibilities such as having someone from the Recreation Department or an entity created for a supervisory role at the court. “Can we be there as police officers as often as some people would like? You know the answer to that,” Wolford said. Wolford noted the court is being closed with at least two hours of daylight left and when the weather

appeared to be drugs on the ground in the area of the court, along with approximately 15-20 empty plastic bag corners used to sell drugs and spread around the court. “Do I like the problems that occur? No. Sometimes, do we react pretty strongly? Absolutely,” Wolford told the committee on Friday morning. “If we have people that are just acting like complete fools, then we shut it down,” Wolford said. Wolford noted the court gate was locked for the rest of the day after the last incident and sometimes has remained locked for as long as two days. “But, in the long run,

it’s a basketball court,” Wolford said. “I think that’s what the board originally intended it to be and we’ve got to keep it from being something else. I just hope you guys have some ideas on how to do that, but that’s my opinion,” Wolford said. Powell later in the meeting said there will be a brainstorming session in which handpicked persons and anyone else who wants to bring something to table will figure out ways to engage those ages 13 and above. A time, date and location have not been set.

A Granville Countywide gang prevention partnership was formed in the aftermath of a March 10 clash at the court that swelled into a larger crowd on the southeast side of Oxford. And Wolford has said that, on July 22, officers responded to a report regarding a disturbance at the court and found approximately 80-100 people in the area.

In this community 40 miles north of the South Carolina line, surf instructor Dave Houck said the building waves promised to be a weekend treat. He said he usually cancels classes when a tropical storm approaches, but he was on the strand Friday to coach some longtime students. “This is what surfers love as far as the East Coast is concerned,” said Houck, 33, of nearby Wilmington. “We don’t want the mess. We just want the swells when the storm stays off shore.” On Friday night, the storm was centered about 300 miles south of Cape Hatteras and moving north near 8 mph. Forecasters expected the storm to increase its speed through the water and turn toward the north-northeast, passing offshore of the Carolinas early today and offshore of New England later that evening.

Home movies offer new look at Smokies park By JOE EDWARDS Associated Press Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Amateur moviemakers who captured a family vacation or memorable event have provided a fresh look at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park as it celebrates its 75th anniversary. Home movies provide all the footage in a new film, “Vintage Views of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park: 19201970.” The park is being rededicated next week, and the movie will debut shortly afterward. The film is an 80-minute montage of mostly 16 mm clips gathered from the home movies of residents of the Smokies and the Gatlinburg area. It’s all there: The scenic views, the family hikes, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s park dedication, the mountain accents and the tantalizing taffy shops that developed in Gatlinburg as the Smokies became the nation’s most visited national park. “Hollywood couldn’t be there every day, but the history was captured by mom and pop taking their kids to the mountains, or people just interested in the mountains,” said Bradley Reeves, a co-producer

Eleanor Roosevelt’s visit in 1937 is captured along with her husband’s famous visit in 1940. “Once you clean it up and digitize it, the film looks great,” Reeves said. “The images are crisp and clear. I don’t think there’s any other project like this.” Reeves and his co-producer, Louisa Trott, chose 25 to 50 individual home movies for the film out of several hundred reels. The source film was easy to locate. “I’d imagine 90 percent of the home footage in East Tennessee has the Smokies in it,” Reeves said. “We are letting the footage speak for itself.” The project was financed by a fundraising event that brought in $2,000. The home movies, collected mostly through word-of-mouth, have been donated to the nonprofit TAMIS to be preserved for future generations. A second screening of the film will be Sept. 19 in Knoxville. The national park, 520,000 acres straddling the Tennessee-North Carolina border with peaks that reach 6,643 feet, has around 9 million visitors a year, many of them from the Southeast.

man Todd McGee said. The delay had forced many counties to look elsewhere for construction funds. In Beaufort County, which is expected to receive $158,092, the holdback forced the county leaders to delay purchases on computer servers and other equipment so it could find money to pay down $33 million in school construction bonds. “We had to make some crucial cut to services in the county,” assistant

Perdue said during last year’s gubernatorial campaign that she wanted to take extra steps to ensure profits from the North Carolina Education Lottery were spent solely on education. The $50 million reserve has not been returned, Perdue spokeswoman David Kochman said, but lawmakers reimbursed the Public School Textbook Fund for another $50 million that Perdue decided to take in February when faced with state cash flow

N.C. Supreme Court restores felons’ gun rights RALEIGH (AP) — The North Carolina Supreme Court says a 2004 law that bars convicted felons from having a gun, even within their own home or business, is unconstitutional. The state’s high court ruled Friday in the case of Barney Britt of Wake

County that the General Assembly went too far five years ago when it toughened restrictions on felons owning guns as part of a broad anti-domesticviolence bill. Justice Patricia Timmons-Goodson said in a dissenting opinion the

decision could encourage challenges against state bans on felons and the insane owning guns. Britt was convicted of felony drug possession in 1979. He completed his sentence in 1982, and his right to own a gun was restored five years later.

problems. Perdue also took money from the state’s “rainy day” reserve fund, which had nearly $800 million, to deal with this past year’s shortfall. Perdue’s budget troubles aren’t over. A $19 billion spending plan for this year was signed into law just three weeks ago. But her budget office already said it will hold back 5 percent of money allocated to state agencies because of uncertainty of the state’s economy.

night Saturday for about 10,300 employees at seven plants, in Akron, Ohio; Buffalo, N.Y.; Danville, Va.; Fayetteville, N.C.; Gadsden, Ala.; Topeka, Kan., and Union City, Tenn. The talks have been under way in Cincinnati since June and the old three-year contract has been extended twice. There was no immediate word on a third extension, but the union told members in an online update that it expected a settlement by the deadline, or before. Ed Markey, a spokesman at the company headquarters in Akron,

said Goodyear was confident a settlement would be reached but offered no timetable. “Both sides remain fully engaged as negotiations continue,” he said in an email. “We remain optimistic that we will reach an agreement.” The company’s contract goals have been to improve productivity and flexibility. Wayne Ranick, a spokesman at union headquarters in Pittsburgh, said that the negotiations have reached an “intense” stage. He said that while affected locals have voted overwhelmingly to authorize a strike if neces-

sary, the company and union were mindful of the economy. Jack Hefner, president of an Akron union local representing about 300 Goodyear employees, said rank-and-file members understood the economic situation might make reaching a settlement difficult. “There are no winners in a strike,” Hefner said. John Russo, professor of labor studies at Youngstown State University, said the recession and Goodyear’s move to shift production to lower-cost countries put the union in a difficult position. “Management is in a very powerful position,” he said.

U.S. Attorney Mary Beth Buchanan said in a statement released after the hearing. In the week in August 2005 when it became known the company’s finances were being investigated, World Health’s stock price plummeted from $3.55 per share to 49 cents. Buchanan estimated this cost shareholders to lose more than $200 million. Dressed in a gray T-shirt and jeans, McDonald, who could spend more than 30 years in prison if convicted,

made no comment in court except to acknowledge his understanding of the charges against him. He has not yet hired an attorney. McDonald will be arraigned on Sept. 4. He has been released on $100,000 bond. World Health filed for bankruptcy after the investigation was revealed.

Our Opinion

Sex predators merit greater observation When Jaycee Dugard — kidnapped at age 11, and now 29 years old — turned up this week at a parole agent’s office in California with her abductor, it illustrated the depravity of which some humans are capable, and the importance of investing heavily in law enforcement’s holding and monitoring of sex offenders. Dugard was dragged into a car by Phillip Garrido’s wife, Nancy, while walking to a school bus stop near her South Lake Tahoe home in 1991. Since then, she has lived in a fenced-in compound in the backyard of the Garrido home less than 200 miles away in a busy residential neighborhood of Antioch, Calif. Dugard is the mother of Garrido’s two daughters, ages 15 and 11. As the story behind the headlines emerges, we realize that none of it needed to happen, and once abducted, Jaycee Dugard could have been rescued much sooner. It was only possible for the Garridos to kidnap Jaycee Dugard in 1991 because Phillip Dugard served so little time for a sentence associated with a horrendous sex crime committed in 1977. Dugard in that case kidnapped a 25-year-old woman — also from South Lake Tahoe — imprisoning and raping her in a self-storage unit that he had outfitted as a sex den. He was sentenced to 50 years in federal prison for kidnapping and 5 years to life in California for his sex offenses, but he met his future wife and married her while in prison and then was out in less than 15 years, just in time to kidnap Dugard. The known sex offender’s wife is a dead-ringer for the 1991 police sketch created with the help of Dugard’s stepfather, Carl Probyn, who watched, horrified, as the woman drag his stepdaughter into a Ford sedan. Probyn then chased the car fruitlessly on his mountain bike until it got away. In the 18 years since the kidnapping, Garrido was subjected to surprise in-home visits and drug tests stemming from his 1977 crimes, but no officer apparently ever ventured into his backyard. Garrido was been sent back to jail for several months at one time for violating his parole, but no extensive search of the property resulted — a search that would have uncovered not only a young woman and two little girls living in tents, but an old Ford, still on the property, that matches the description of the vehicle used to kidnap Jaycee Dugard. And even in 2006, when a neighbor called police to say that little girls were living in tents in Garrido’s backyard, nobody went all the way behind the house to investigate. An officer, who was somehow unaware that Garrido was a registered sex offender, talked to the kidnapper on his front porch for 30 minutes, warned him that the tents might be a city code violation, and then left. It’s difficult, and in many ways unfair, to judge the authorities’ lack of success in locating and saving Jaycee Dugard. But this horrible case illustrates the need to place sex offenders near the top rung of the ladder — or bottom of the barrel might be a better term — when it comes to imprisoning offenders and monitoring them after their release. Sex offenders are among the most difficult, if not impossible, criminals to rehabilitate. As such, they should be among the offenders most likely to serve the bulk of their sentences, not among the ones likely to get out of prison early. And, once they’re on the streets, law enforcement must invest the time and financial resources necessary to monitor them, not only through registries — which are so often violated by offenders who move on without reporting — but also in tracking these criminals down if they drop off the radar. Because once one of these predators slips out of sight for even a moment, women, little girls and little boys disappear. And all too often the kidnapped are not found alive, if they’re found at all.

Got to give the president a big bowl of props for interrupting Obama-Rama on Martha’s Vineyard with his valiant effort to paint a big old smiling happy face on the side of the economy. Although in the future he might want to come up with something a bit more reassuring than, “We’re losing jobs at a much slower pace.” Hey everybody, did you catch that? The economy is doing less badly. Alright! It’s not getting worse as rapidly as it previously was. Woo hoo! The brakes are on the slide. About as encouraging as a squad of septuagenarian cheerleaders waving black pom-poms after a loss in the rain at night. Typically, economists are unsure whether the parachute has or hasn’t opened to slow the free-fall of our recession. Or why. That’s because they’re economists. You know that phrase: “Couldn’t tell his rear end from yellow paint?” Next time you see an economist on one of those cable talk shows, check under his fingernails. You got it. Chips of yellow paint. Look up “equivocating” in the dictionary — there’s a picture of an

accountant hiding from an economist. It could be seasonal. Perhaps summer barbecue grill tongs sales peaked above expectations, or backto-school notebooks flew off the shelf, or there’s been an early run on Cool Whip in anticipation Will of massive Durst pumpkinDistributed by Cagle Cartoons

pie production. Could be just the natural way of things. You know, part of that whole good, bad, boom, bust, excellent, sucky cycle. Then again, it might have been the muchvaunted economic stimulus package kicking in. Hard to tell. Although a lot of folks still maintain the only thing the stimulus package aroused was their suspicion. Cash for Clunkers might have had a hand in it. The rebate program ended its run with about 700,000 new cars sold, and initial estimates

are that three or four of them were made in America. I got to be honest, when I first heard the phrase “Cash for Clunkers,” I thought they were talking about raising the per diem for the Senate. Or it was a recurring entry on a lobbyist’s expense report. It hasn’t been all roses and sunshine and bubble baths. Some dealers are still whining about government delays in rebate reimbursement. Yeah. You read that right. Auto dealers are complaining someone is slow holding up their end of a bargain. Should have signed up for the undercoating. Now the feds are rolling out a sequel to Cash for Clunkers whereby consumers earn rebates by trading in large appliances for energy-efficient replacements. The old twobirds-with-one-coin strategy. The problem is there’s no cute alliterative name for the program. I’m sorry; Cash for Stackable Washer/ Dryer Combos doesn’t quite cut it. Cash for Upright Freezers with Manual Defrost lacks a certain je ne sais quoi. What we need is a series of programs to recapture the

public’s fancy and open wide their wallets. People eat, don’t they? Why not seduce them into consuming domestic donuts? Cash for Dunkers. Or how about our brave American rotisserie chicken establishments? Cash for Cluckers. Maybe a stimulus program for disaffected banjo players … Cash for Pluckers. Oyster restaurants could use assistance: Cash for Shuckers. Let’s throw a bone to our indigenous cave explorers. Cash for Spelunkers. And finally, I’m personally hoping to hook into a research grant for exposing fake psychics: You know, Cash for Debunkers. Will Durst is a San Franciscobased political comic who writes sometimes.

Obama speaks of faith The fight over health care took the most interesting turn last week. President Obama briefly switched from wonkish frippery about bending cost curves to speaking of faith. Reaching out to progressive faith leaders in two massive conference calls, Obama insisted that God was on his side. Expanding health care fulfills a “core moral and ethical obligation that we look out for one another ... that I am my brother’s keeper, my sister’s keeper.” This would be an easy opportunity to call attention, once again, to the double standards applied to Obama. When President George W. Bush invoked God as his inspiration, many liberals saw our theocrat-inchief taking a sledgehammer to the wall between church and state. When Obama does likewise, it’s inspiring, spiritual leadership. But, frankly, I find it refreshing. Of all the silly arguments that have been passed off as deeply profound in American politics, the notion that politicians can’t “impose” their personal morality on others tops the list. We have abortion politics in general, and former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo in particular, to thank for that. In 1984, Cuomo gave his famous address at Notre Dame in which he laid out the notion that a politician can be “personally opposed” to abortion but should refuse to translate that conviction into public policy. As political rhetoric, the speech was compelling. As a serious philosophical, theological or moral argument, it was a mess. For instance, Cuomo found inspiration in the Catholic Church’s relative silence on American slavery as justification for keeping religion out of the abortion debate. Never mind that abolition was the most religious of political movements. “It is a mark of contempo-

rary liberalism’s commitment to abortion,” Ramesh Ponnuru writes in “The Party of Death,” “that one of its leading lights should have been willing to support temporizing on slavery in order to defend it.” The main problem with Cuomo’s sophistry is that, once watered down into political talking points, it’s simply ludicrous. In 2004, another Jonah Catholic Goldberg Democrat captured the Tribune Media inherent conServices tradictions of Cuomo-ism nicely in a presidential debate. John Kerry insisted that his faith was “why I fight against poverty. That’s why I fight to clean up the environment and protect this Earth. That’s why I fight for equality and justice. All of those things come out of that fundamental teaching and belief of faith.” But he also said that, when it came to abortion, “What is an article of faith for me is not something that I can legislate on somebody who doesn’t share that article of faith.” The statements cannot be reconciled. By Kerry’s own admission, he seeks to legislate his articles of faith on people on nearly every issue under the sun — except abortion. Suddenly, on that issue alone, he is an adamantine secularist. But in recent years, Democratic rhetoric has been changing, for several reasons. One, many voters are put off by such double-talk. Another reason is that many smart liberals have noticed that some religious Americans are more activist on economic and environmental issues but are turned off by what

In 1957, the Senate gave final congressional approval to a Civil Rights Act after South Carolina Sen. Strom Thurmond (then a Democrat) ended a filibuster that had lasted 24 hours. In 1958, pop superstar Michael Jackson was born in Gary, Ind. In 1965, Gemini 5, carrying astronauts Gordon Cooper and Charles “Pete” Conrad, splashed down in the Atlantic after 8 days in space. In 1966, the Beatles concluded their fourth American tour with their last public concert, at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast near Buras, La.; the resulting floods devastated the city of New Orleans. More than 1,800 people in the region died.

SATURDAY Afternoon / Evening


Today is Saturday, Aug. 29, the 241st day of 2009. There are 124 days left in the year.

Five years ago: Protesters filling 20 city blocks peacefully swarmed Manhattan’s streets on the eve of the Republican National Convention to demand that President George W. Bush be turned out of office. A car bomb at the office of a U.S. security contractor in Afghanistan killed about 10 people, including three Americans.



Today In History By The Associated Press




DEAR ABBY: I have just learned that my older sister, “Lindy” (who is currently living with our parents), has been married for two months. I’m the only one who knows. Lindy’s husband moved out of state to take a temporary job. I know if my parents knew, they’d be upset and would no longer allow her to live with them. Their posiDear Abby is written by Abigail tion is if you’re old enough Van Buren, also known as to get married, you should Jeanne Phillips, and was be financially independent. founded by her mother, Pauclient line willPhillips. fill Write Dear Abby As it stands, she is currently on their medical insurance, at or P.O. pays no rent and is attending Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA school on their dollar. 90069. She and her husband had



planned to keep this a secret from everyone. I just found out, and it makes me sick. She’s getting a free ride at my parents’ expense. I promised Lindy I’d keep her secret, but I think what she’s doing is wrong and has the potential to hurt my parents financially and emotionally. I am tempted to tell them anyway. How do you think I should handle this? — I’VE GOT A SECRET IN UTAH DEAR GOT A SECRET: You should strongly encourage your sister to level with your parents for the reasons you stated. But do not betray her confidence because if you do, she will never confide in you again. It’s not as though Lindy is on drugs, unmarried and pregnant or in a life-threatening situation. Your parents will find out eventually, and she’ll face the music then. DEAR ABBY: Whenever my brother sees a family member eat something unhealthy (salty chips, ice cream, etc.), he thinks it’s OK to comment on what we’re eating and what it will do to our bodies. I think it is rude. We know that not everything we eat is perfectly healthy, but we know to eat these things in moderation. (None of us is overweight, by the way.) My brother claims he makes these comments because he “cares about us,” but I think it’s rude to do it while we’re eating. What do you think? — CHRISTINA IN FAIRFIELD, OHIO DEAR CHRISTINA: I agree. There is nothing so hard to swallow as unaskedfor advice, particularly when you’re eating. Your brother may mean well, or he may be a know-it-all, but his timing is off. Ignore him, and when he sees he doesn’t get a rise out of you, he’ll stop.


DEAR ABBY: I’m a 22-year-old male who has never been in a serious relationship. About six months ago, I went away to grad school and met a girl. We have become good friends. We talk a lot and I flirt, but I’m not sure if she’s flirting back. She laughs at my stupid jokes and touches me when we joke around, but I think she may regard me as just a friend. I enjoy having her as a friend, but I can’t stop thinking about how I’d like to be more than just friends. Should I take the chance and tell her how I feel and risk our friendDear ship — or let things Abby remain Universal Press the way Syndicate they are? — WANTS MORE IN NEW JERSEY DEAR WANTS MORE: Take the chance and tell her. Faint heart never won fair lady. A clue that she might be mutually attracted to you is the fact that she touches you. If she isn’t attracted to you, you can still be friends — but you’ll be psychologically free to look elsewhere for romance. Please write back and tell me what happens — I’m dying to know.

RALEIGH — North Carolina State has developed a knack for finishing strong under coach Tom O’Brien. It’s getting started that has been the problem. After lackluster losses in both of his season openers in Raleigh, O’Brien is hoping to begin his third year with a win for a change. Calling next week’s O’Brien opener against South Carolina “a measuring stick” for his program, the N.C. State coach said Friday that he’s eager to see how far his Wolfpack have come since starting last season with a blowout loss in Columbia. He bristled at suggestions that N.C. State is out to avenge last year’s embarrassment, insisting that “there’s no such thing as revenge. It’s our fault we lost 34-0.” But at the very least, it’s clear the Wolfpack still have something left to prove. The biggest reason why things could be different this time: His team has plenty of proven answers at its most important positions — at quarterback and along both lines. “We’ve got a couple questions at a couple different spots, but we don’t have questions at key spots,” O’Brien said. “Those are things where we’ve won football games. We’ve won because we’re good up front and have good quarterback play. In that, we’re a lot more experienced than we were a year ago.” The depth chart unveiled Friday seems to confirm that. ACC rookie of the year Russell Wilson is back under center, as expected. Now-healthy seniors Toney Baker and Jamelle Eugene are listed as 1-2 at tailback. The Wolfpack will start three seniors and a junior on the offensive line. And all four starters on the defensive line are in their fourth season of Please see WOLFPACK, page 3B

Rams rush past Vikings Franklinton scores 19 unanswered to give Northern second loss By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor

FRANKLINTON — The Red Rams scored 19 unanswered points and rode a solid rushing performance from Dietrick Mitchell to give Northern Vance their second loss of the season Friday night. The Vikings took a 10-0 lead at the half after a 96-yard interception return for a touchdown by Brandon Epps, but that was all they would get. Mitchell’s 41-yard run put the Red Rams on the board in the third, Reggie Williams scored early in the fourth to give them the lead, and the Franklinton defense blanked the Vikings in the second half to win 19-10. “This team has got to get tougher. That’s all there is to it. Not only physically, but mentally too,” said Northern coach Cedric Crudup. A slippery field from rainy weather, missed tackles and penalties hurt the Vikings. They were penalized nine times for 54 yards, often at inopportune times. Mitchell finished the game with 161 yards. Williams had 83 yards on the ground. For the game, Franklinton totaled 357 yards of offense — 310 rushing. The Red Ram defense

Quarterback Jordan Branch threw a lateral pass to John Nelson, who tossed it downfield for Epps to put Northern at the Red Ram 35. The drive stalled, however, and Joseph Falkner’s 42-yard field goal attempt was wide to the left. Northern recovered a fumble on Franklinton’s first possession, but their subsequent drive also

stalled after the Red Ram defense pushed them backwards. Falkner scored the game’s first points with 11:02 left in the second when his 38-yard field goal sailed through the uprights. With under a minute to play in the half, Franklinton had the ball deep in Viking territory.

Howard homers twice in Phillies’ win over Braves PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Ryan Howard homered twice during a perfect night at the plate, Jamie Moyer pitched effectively in relief of Pedro Martinez, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Atlanta Braves 4-2 in the rain Friday. Looking for its third straight division title, Philadelphia increased its NL East lead to eight games over Atlanta and Florida, which lost at home to San Diego. Howard gave the World Series champion Phillies a 1-0 lead with a homer in the second inning off starter Tommy Hanson (9-3), who was celebrating his 23rd birthday. After Jayson Werth struck out, rain forced a delay of 63 minutes. Play then resumed for 7 minutes before another 45-minute stoppage. In the fourth, Howard drove a two-run shot to center off Kris

Medlan for his 22nd career multihomer game and fifth this season. The slugger also stroked a double and walked to finish 3 for 3 with three RBIs. Howard has 11 home runs and 29 RBIs in his last 15 games, with a .339 batting average, and appears to have started his annual late-season surge. More could be on the way. From Aug. 26 through the end of the past two seasons, Howard has hit a combined .317 with 25 homers and 54 RBIs. Martinez started for Philadelphia and allowed one hit and one walk in two innings. He was on deck in the second — following the first delay — but didn’t return after the second stoppage. As he did on Aug. 18, Moyer (12-9) relieved Martinez. The 46-year-old lefty worked 4 1-3

Ian Bosley ran for 130 yards and returned a kick 80 yards for a touchdown as South Granville defeated Southern Vance 32-6 Friday night. Southern’s lone touchdown came on a 17-yard pass from James Harris. “We just had too many penalties,” said Raiders coach Mark Perry. “We would drive down the field, and never could finish.” The Vikings took a 14-0 lead into the half. Southern Vance (1-1) has an off week next week before they play at Cedar Ridge on Sept. 11. Perry said the extra practice time is “a good chance for us to work heavily on special teams.”

Philadelphia’s Ryan Howard and Jayson Werth celebrate after Howard's home run as Atlanta catcher Brian McCann looks on in the second inning of Friday’s game. innings, allowing one run and four hits with no walks and five strikeouts. It was his second win in relief after being bumped from the rotation. Ryan Madson loaded the bases

in the eighth, but escaped by getting Adam LaRoche on a fly to center field. Struggling closer Brad Lidge, who leads the majors with nine blown saves, worked a quick ninth for his 26th save.

Person County led 14-0 before J.F. Webb could blink Friday night. The Rockets scored on a long run after intercepting a Joel Adcock pass on the first Warrior possession. Person County returned a Webb punt for a touchdown, and carried the early momentum to a 28-14 win. The Rockets led 20-0 at the half. Both the Warriors’ touchdowns were scored in the fourth quarter by Akeem Daniel. The Warriors were knocking on the door near the end of the game, but turned it over on a fumble before they could add another score. Daniel scored on a short run to put the Warriors on the board, and it was 28-6 after the missed PAT. Daniel broke a big run for his second touchdown, and Adcock rushed in for the two-point conversion. Webb coach Brian Currin, in his second game at the helm, said his players were “playing as individuals and not as a team” in the first half. Currin said he was pleased with the poise his team showed in scoring in the fourth quarter. “I’m proud of the guys for not giving up,” he said. Currin said he thought his young players “learned a lot” from Friday’s game. Intercounty rival South Granville comes to Oxford next week with a 2-0 record. Currin said his team will have to prepare for the Vikings’ solid running game in this week’s practice. “They hang their hat on running the ball,” he said. “Defensively, we’ve got to stop the run.” “Being our big county rivalry, we’ve got to be ready to play.”

NBA Smith, Richardson suspended by association NEW YORK (AP) — The NBA has suspended Denver’s J.R. Smith and Phoenix’s Jason Richardson after both were recently convicted of driving offenses. Smith will sit out the Nuggets’ first seven games for pleading guilty to reckless driving in New Jersey. Richardson will miss two games after he pleaded guilty to drunken driving in Arizona. Both suspensions imposed Friday are without pay. The NBA said Smith’s was also for his poor driving record. Smith was involved in an accident in 2007 that caused the death of a passenger in his car. Smith, who finished runner-up to Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Terry for the NBA’s Sixth Man award last season, is expected to move into the Nuggets’ starting lineup with the departure of Dahntay Jones to the Indiana Pacers in free agency.

Bulls win fifth straight, down Norfolk 11-2 Special to the Dispatch

NORFOLK, VA. — Chris Richard became Durham's Triple-A career home run leader on Friday, as the Bulls rolled to an 11-2 win over Norfolk on Friday. The Bulls remain tied for first in the South Division with Gwinnett heading into a fourgame series in Durham on Saturday. Richard's two-run homer to right off Chris Lambert (6-9) in the second inning gave Durham

a 2-0 advantage. It was Richard's 23rd homer this year, and 63rd as a Bull. That surpassed Scott McClain's total of 62. Richard had hit a game-winning homer the night before to tie McClain. Durham then two in the third on a single by Akinori Iwamura and a Reid Brignac single for a 4-0 lead before the rains came. The game was delayed 54 minutes, ending Wade Davis' night early. He had retired his first nine bat-

ters on just 31 pitches. Durham then picked up where it left off when the game resumed, as Matt Joyce hit a threerun homer in the fifth, his 15th, for a 7-0 advantage. Elliot Johnson later homered, his 10th, as Durham collected 16 hits and drew eight walks in completing a 6-1 road trip, and a fifth straight victory. Calvin Medlock (4-1) followed Davis and threw four scoreless innings before allowing three straight hits in the eight.

Jason Childers retired all six hitters he faced, with two runs scoring on groundouts. Durham (76-58) now has a magic number of seven to clinch a playoff spot with 10 games left. The Bulls and Gwinnett start a four-game series in Durham on Saturday with righty Andy Sonnanstine on the mound against veteran lefty John Halama.

Brady leaves with sore shoulder in Pats’ win By JOSEPH WHITE AP Sports Writer

LANDOVER, Md. — Officially, Tom Brady has a “sore shoulder,” the result of being crushed to the turf by massive Albert Haynesworth. It caused enough discomfort for him to spend quite a while on the bench flexing and rotating his throwing arm, trying to work out whatever kinks where there. It could be nothing. It could be something. Actually, anything that involves Tom Brady is always something, especially in a season in which he’s trying to come back from a major knee injury. Brady hurt his shoulder in the New England Patriots’ 27-24 victory over the Washington Redskins on Friday night. It was late in the first half when he was pressed to the ground by All-Pro defensive tackle Haynesworth after a third down incomplete pass. “Anytime someone 350 pounds falls on him, it’s going to hurt him,” New England right tackle Matt Light said. “You just know it’s part of the game, and Tom’s been through it before and you know he can take it.” Brady went to the bench, where he stretched his arm repeatedly as

New England Patriots Tom Brady throws a pass during the first half of Friday’s preseason game against Washington. the half came to a close and again after returning from the locker room after halftime. Brady did not play in the second half, even though most of the firstteam offense returned for the first drive of the third quarter. He then left the sideline and returned to the locker room. In the fourth quarter, the Patriots announced Brady’s injury as a sore shoulder, a diagnosis that gave coach Bill Belichick a twitch in his both of his shoulders. The Patriots coach was his classic self, displaying the annoyed shrug so familiar when anyone asks him about an injury. Despite the team’s announcement, Belichick said Brady had only “some bumps and bruises, just like everybody else

who played in the game.” He also said that he had not planned for Brady to play any of the second half. Brady did not speak to reporters after the game. If one assumes Brady is fine, he has to feel good about his performance. He and counterpart Jason Campbell put on a regular season show in preseason, combining for 359 yards, six scoring drives and no interceptions. In the game that traditionally serves as the dress rehearsal for the real stuff that begins in two weeks, Brady went 12 for 19 passes for 150 yards and two touchdowns. Randy Moss had his way with the Redskins secondary, catching six passes for 90 yards and both of Brady’s TDs.

Campbell had been feeling the heat after a 4-for13 start to the preseason, including 1 for 7 last week, with no touchdowns in either game from the first-team offense. On Friday, he played the first half and first drive of the second half, finishing a hot-and-cold 13 for 22 for 209 yards. Asked if he’d answered his critics, Campbell said: “It’s never enough. It will be something. Next week it will be that he didn’t hit the big ball to Santana (Moss).” He paused for a beat, laughed and said: “Nah, I was just joking. It really doesn’t bother me at all.” Campbell went 4 for 4 on the opening drive, then had three straight three-and-outs before another scoring drive that featured a 73-yard completion to tight end Chris Cooley, who kept his balance along the sideline to take the ball inside the 10. Campbell finished the drive with a 4-yard run after a nice move that faked out linebacker Paris Lenon. “I was very pleased,” coach Jim Zorn said. “He was very much into the game. He was competing hard and doing the things that you want. We missed on a couple of long ones, but he came back and was running the show.”

Judge: NCAA must surrender records in FSU scandal TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The NCAA must release documents on Florida State’s appeal of an academic cheating penalty, a Florida judge ruled Friday, noting that the NCAA’s rationale for keeping the documents secret would “emasculate” the state’s broad public access laws. Circuit Judge John C. Cooper ordered that the copies be turned over to The Associated Press and other media, which filed a public records lawsuit. The documents focus on Florida State’s appeal of a plan to strip coaches and athletes of wins in 10 sports, including 14 from football coach Bobby Bowden. It would dim Bowden’s chances of surpassing Penn State’s Joe Paterno for most wins by a major college coach. Bowden has 382 victories — one behind Penn State’s Joe Paterno. Karen Kaiser, an attorney for the AP, said the news organization is “thrilled with the court’s decision, which upholds the

right of the people to access important public documents such as these. We look forward to receiving the documents that the court has said we are entitled to receive.” The NCAA in a statement said it is reviewing the court’s order and discussing its options. It plans to appeal to a state appeals court and ask to block the release until it can rule. Florida State had no immediate comment. The news organizations sued for access to records that include the NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions’ response to Florida State’s appeal. The school is being penalized because 61 athletes in several sports received improper help from staffers who gave them answers to an online music test or typed papers for them. The media lawsuit accused the NCAA, Florida State, school officials and a law firm working for the university of participating in “a scheme created to avoid public access.”

The NCAA had posted documents about the scandal on a secured Web site for FSU’s lawyers to read. Because FSU and its attorneys never had physical control of the documents, the school and the NCAA argued that they were not subject to Florida’s broad public records law. But Cooper disagreed, writing that siding with the NCAA’s argument would “emasculate” the state’s public records law and “would provide clever proponents of secret communication with govern-

ment an easy mechanism for avoiding the public’s right to know what its government is doing.” He also rejected the argument that the release would violate the students’ privacy, noting that the news organizations have agreed that their names can be redacted and that the documents primarily discuss the conduct of Florida State employees. “Allowing universities to keep secret any record that mentions a student would allow universities to operate in secret and contrary to Florida law,” Cooper wrote.

New York’s Robinson Cano rounds the bases after hitting a walk-off three-run home run against Chicago in the tenth inning of Friday’s game.

Yankees win with walk-off Yankees 5, White Sox 2 (10) NEW YORK (AP) — Robinson Cano hit a threerun homer with two outs in the 10th inning to give New York a 5-2 victory over Chicago on Friday night. Cano hit a 2-2 pitch from Randy Williams (0-1) into New York’s bullpen in right-center. Williams retired the first two batters he faced before walking both Hideki Matsui and Nick Swisher on four pitches to set up Cano’s first game-ending homer. Brian Bruney (4-0) worked a perfect 10th inning for the win. Derek Jeter hit his second leadoff homer this week and Johnny Damon also connected for AL East-leading New York, which left nine runners on. Mark Buehrle pitched six effective innings for the White Sox but remained winless in seven starts since his perfect game against Tampa Bay on July 23. Chicago has lost five of six to fall five games behind AL Central-leading Detroit. Red Sox 6, Blue Jays 5 BOSTON (AP) — J.D. Drew had two hits, including an eighth-inning double that put David Ortiz in position to score the tiebreaking run, and Boston rallied from two deficits to beat Toronto. The Blue Jays led 3-0 and 5-3 on two more home runs off Red Sox starter Josh Beckett — that makes 12 homers in his last four starts. It was 5-all when Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek blocked the plate and tagged out Travis Snider just before a 49-minute rain delay in the top of the eighth. When play resumed, Hideki Okajima (5-0) got Aaron Hill — the only batter he faced — on a fly ball to right to end the eighth. Tigers 6, Rays 2 DETROIT (AP) — Brandon Inge homered and scored twice for Detroit. After the game, the Rays announced they traded two-time All-Star Scott Kazmir to the Los Angeles

Angels for left-hander Alex Torres and infielder Matt Sweeney. Rookie Rick Porcello (11-8) won for the first time since Aug. 6, allowing one run and four hits in 5 2-3 innings. Four relievers combined to finish the six-hitter. Matt Garza (7-9) took the loss, giving up six runs and five hits in five innings.

Mariners 6, Royals 3 SEATTLE (AP) — Fillin Josh Wilson had his first three-RBI game in more than two years, and former Royals All-Star Mike Sweeney burned his old team with a hustle play to score one of his two runs in the Seattle Mariners’ 6-3 victory over Kansas City on Friday night. Mariners ace Felix Hernandez was far from sharp, throwing first-pitch strikes to only 11 of the 27 batters he faced in seven so-so innings. Twins 3, Rangers 2 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Rookie Brian Duensing struck out eight in seven innings in his third career start to lead Minnesota. Duensing (2-1) allowed three hits and walked one for the Twins, who have won eight of their last 10 games. Tommy Hunter (6-3) gave up three runs and seven hits in seven innings for the Rangers, who got an RBI-double from David Murphy in the ninth and had the tying run on second base. But Joe Nathan got Chris Davis looking on a close call for his 33rd save. Orioles 13, Indians 4 BALTIMORE (AP) — Rookie Matt Wieters had three hits and a careerhigh four RBIs, and Nick Markakis and Felix Pie homered for Baltimore. Luke Scott scored three runs for the Orioles, who improved to 13-28 since the All-Star break. Baltimore trailed 2-0 in the second before scoring six runs over a four-inning stretch against Fausto Carmona (3-9).

WOLFPACK, from page 1B eligibility, including Willie Young — a graduate student, four-year starter at defensive end and the unquestioned leader of the group. “Last year has nothing to do with this year,” Young said. Perhaps not, but the Wolfpack certainly can’t afford another slow start if they want to take advantage of the momentum they generated with last year’s late surge. Wilson’s emergence as one of the ACC’s most electrifying playmakers has thrust N.C. State among the contenders in the therefor-the-taking Atlantic Division. They didn’t have that kind of star power in 2007, when they were sloppy in

dropping O’Brien’s debut against Central Florida, started 1-5 and failed to beat a Football Bowl Subdivision team until late October before winning four in a row to move to the verge of bowl eligibility. They followed a similar blueprint last season, opening with that blowout loss to South Carolina that was marred by a concussion to Wilson in his first college start. A 2-6 start followed, before another late-season four-game winning streak catapulted them into their first bowl game since 2005. “It’s a new year. Who knows what it’s going to bring?” O’Brien said. “We have to be ready to play from the outset.”

Kazmir traded to AL West-leading Angels ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Scott Kazmir was traded from the Tampa Bay Rays to the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night, giving the AL West leaders a major boost to their unsteady rotation. The Angels acquired Kazmir, a two-time All-Star, for two minor leaguers and a player to be named. The left-hander was 8-7 with a 5.92 ERA this season for the defending AL champion Rays. “This is a surprise. I had heard rumors before, but it’s hard to believe that it is now official,” Kazmir said after Tampa Bay’s 6-2 loss to Detroit. “It’s a disappointment because of all the relationships I’ve built in the organization and the city, but you can’t control the business side of the game.” Tampa Bay receives left-hander Alex Torres and third baseman Matt Sweeney in the deal. “We’re very excited

about the player that we can’t name yet, but also about the other two,” Rays manager Joe Maddon said. “The lefty has a great arm, and Sweeney is one of the best hitters in the minors.” Looking to lock up their third straight division title, the Angels began the night four games ahead of second-place Texas. Tampa Bay was 3 1/2 out in the wild-card race. “We are excited to have a pitcher of Scott’s caliber,” Angels general manager Tony Reagins said. “He has excelled at the major league level since he came into the league, and we like his competitiveness. The move also provides us with some depth in our rotation.” Because he was dealt before Aug. 31, Kazmir is eligible for postseason play with Los Angeles. He had to clear waivers to be traded at this point in the season.

“I’m going to a quality organization that is in the race every year,” Kazmir said. “That’s something to look forward to, but I don’t think it will hit me until I fly out there tomorrow.” The move came as a bit of a surprise because the 25-year-old Kazmir was a key part of a talented young core that helped Tampa Bay go from perennial losers to pennant winners last year. But the trade provides salary relief for the cost-conscious Rays, who have several important budget decisions coming up. Kazmir is earning $6 million this season in the first year of a $28.5 million, three-year deal he agreed to in May 2008. He is owed $8 million next season and $12 million in 2010, and his contract contains a $13.5 million club option for 2012 with a $2.5 million buyout. “I don’t know what to say, because he’s been

pitching well,” Rays teammate Carl Crawford said. “It surprises me to see Kaz go, because of everything he’s meant to the organization.” Kazmir led the AL with 239 strikeouts in 2007 but has been slowed by injuries during his career. All season, Los Angeles has been piecing together a rotation beset by injuries to John Lackey, Ervin Santana, Joe Saunders and Kelvim Escobar, and the tragic death of Nick Adenhart. Lackey can become a free agent after the season. Kazmir will become the Angels’ 14th starting pitcher this year, most in the majors. He was 4-1 with a 4.38 ERA over his last six starts for Tampa Bay. His previous outing was Wednesday at Toronto, where he struck out 10 while allowing a run and four hits over six innings in a no-decision.

NL Roundup

Pujols hits walk-off, Smoltz solid for Cards Cardinals 3, Nationals 2 ST. LOUIS (AP) — John Smoltz struck out six and allowed one run in six innings in his first home start for St. Louis, and Albert Pujols hit his 41st homer leading off the bottom of the ninth to give the Cardinals a 3-2 victory over Washington. Pujols homered off Jason Bergmann (2-4) for his eighth career walk-off homer and first since July 13, 2006. Bergmann has allowed seven runs in 2 1-3 innings in his last five appearances. The NL Central leaders have won 16 of 20. Khalil Greene’s first career pinch-hit homer tied it at 2 in the eighth against Nationals starter John Lannan, who allowed two runs and four hits in eight innings. Jason Motte (4-4) worked around a one-out double by Elijah Dukes in the ninth. Josh Bard, a .385 career hitter against St. Louis, put the Nationals ahead 2-1 with an RBI double off Blake Hawksworth in the seventh. Dukes doubled twice and went 3 for 4. Smoltz, released by Boston earlier this month after going 2-5 with an 8.33 ERA, struggled only in the third, allowing two hits and a sacrifice fly by Pete Orr. Reds 4, Dodgers 2 CINCINNATI (AP) — Homer Bailey gave the best performance of his career, holding the NL’s top team scoreless for eight innings, and Cincinnati won their season-high fifth straight. Bailey (4-4) allowed only seven singles and had a career-high seven strikeouts while going eight innings for the first time in his career.

starts, allowing six runs and 10 hits in six innings. Trevor Hoffman pitched the ninth for his 28th save and upped his all-time record total to 582. Zach Duke (10-12) had his shortest outing of the year, allowing seven runs and 11 hits in three innings. Pittsburgh rookie Andrew McCutchen went 3 for 5 with four RBIs and fell a triple shy of a cycle. Fielder hit a three-run homer in the first inning for the consecutive second game. His 36th homer gave him a major-league leading 118 RBIs.

St. Louis starting pitcher John Smoltz throws during the first inning of Friday’s game. Nick Masset gave up a solo homer to James Loney, starting a wild ninth. Closer Francisco Cordero came on and loaded the bases with two outs, let in a run on a wild pitch and got Ramirez on a called third strike to end it. Jonny Gomes had an RBI single and a solo homer off Chad Billingsley (12-8), who lasted five-plus innings.

Cubs 5, Mets 2 CHICAGO (AP) — Alfonso Soriano made up for several miscues in the outfield with a tie-breaking three-run homer in the eighth inning for Chicago. Milton Bradley, who like Soriano has been booed by frustrated Cubs fans, led off the inning with a double, his third hit. He scored on Aramis Ramirez’s single, tying the game 2-all. After reliever Brian

Stokes (1-3) walked Jeff Baker, Soriano hit an 0-2 pitch for his 20th homer of the season and first since July 29. Kevin Gregg (5-5) got the win for the Cubs, who have won seven of 21 since Aug. 7. Making his first start of the season, Pat Misch allowed six hits in a careerhigh seven innings for the Mets, who have lost six of seven.

Brewers 8, Pirates 6 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Prince Fielder, Ryan Braun and Jason Bourgeois homered and Milwaukee snapped a three-game losing streak. The Brewers have won 19 consecutive games over Pittsburgh at Miller Park, last losing to the Pirates in Milwaukee on May 3, 2007. Manny Parra (9-10) won for the fifth time in seven

Padres 9, Marlins 5 MIAMI (AP) — Will Venable had two RBI singles and Kyle Blanks added a two-run homer in San Diego’s six-run second inning. David Eckstein was 3 for 6 with two RBIs for the Padres. Everth Cabrera drove in two runs and Chase Headley — who replaced Blanks in that second inning — added three hits for San Diego, which is 3-1 on its six-game trip to Atlanta and Florida. Chris Coghlan was 3 for 5 and Wes Helms went 2 for 5 with two RBIs for Florida, which has dropped six of nine. Blanks’ two-run homer was a costly shot for both the Padres and Marlins. Blanks aggravated a sore right foot as he rounded the bases, and neither he nor Florida starter Chris Volstad finished the inning. San Diego sent 12 batters to the plate in the second. Volstad (9-11) was charged with six runs in 1 2-3 innings, his shortest outing in 41 career starts. Kevin Correia (9-10) gave up 11 hits and four runs in 6 2-3 innings for San Diego.

VIKINGS, from page 1B held a 10-0 lead. Franklinton had much better success on the ground in the second half. After some good gains, Mitchell had his best of the night. His 41-yard scamper put the Red Rams on the board with 4:42 left in the third quarter. The missed point after made it 10-6. The Vikings had a good return on the kickoff negated by an illegal block call. Back at their own 17, they were pushed backwards and forced to punt. Franklinton drove into the red zone, and Williams punched it in from two yards out to give them the lead. The failed two-point

attempt made it 12-10. Branch had a hard time getting on rhythm with his receivers, and there were a lot of dropped passes. Branch finished 12-for-23 for 157 yards. The next Viking drive stalled after two incomplete passes. But, facing fourth-and-15 deep in their own territory, the Vikings were given new life when the Red Rams were called for roughing the kicker. Northern drove to about mid-field before they were stalled again by penalties, incomplete passes and a couple of recovered fumbles. On fourth-and-22

from the 45, Branch was sacked to turn it over to the Red Rams. The Vikings had one more chance to put together a scoring drive. Epps, back returning the punt, tried to field the ball within the five-yard line. He touched it before it went out around the two-yard line. With their backs near their own end zone, Northern went three-and-out again after Branch’s pass on fourth down fell short of its intended receiver. Taking over possession at the five, R’Shad Yarborough put in the final nail with a touchdown rush up the gut. The PAT made it

19-10 with 1:00 left. Northern lost their season opener 40-6 at Ravenscroft last week. After the game, Crudup said it was “back to boot camp” for his team. Now 0-2, his team will try again for their first win Friday against visiting Warren County. “We just got to keep working them, getting them tougher. Boot camp doesn’t end until the end of the season. It can’t,” he said. “Right now, we’re just not getting it done.” Contact the writer at

Broncos suspend receiver Marshall ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall, openly unhappy with the Denver Broncos, was suspended by the team through Sept. 5 for what coach Josh McDaniels called “detrimental” conduct. Marshall, who has brooded since demanding a trade and asking for a new contract, was informed of the suspension by McDaniels on Friday. “We tried to handle this situation with Brandon as privately and professionally as we could throughout the entire process with he and his agent, Kennard McGuire,” McDaniels said at a news conference. “This morning, we made the decision as an organization to go ahead and suspend Brandon. We’ll look forward to having him back on Sept. 6th as we begin our preparations for Cincinnati” in a Sept. 13 opener. McGuire didn’t immediately return a phone call Friday. McGuire was out of the country until Monday. McDaniels did not single out a specific episode but said the suspension resulted from a series of incidents, though some boorish antics during the team’s practice Wednesday — after he had been warned about such conduct that very morning — seemed to be the final straw for the coach. “His actions didn’t really change after that warning. That leads us to

today,” McDaniels said. During pre-practice warmups Wednesday, Marshall walked while the rest of the team ran. He punted a ball away instead of handing it to a ball boy and swatted a pass thrown to him. His actions were caught on video and broadcast by KMGH-TV. Marshall told ESPN on Thursday night he wasn’t trying to force a trade through insubordination but that frustration got the best of him. Marshall, who had 206 receptions the past two seasons, is also upset with what he feels was the team’s misdiagnosis of a hip injury that required offseason surgery. He pulled a hamstring during the first weekend of training camp and didn’t return until a week ago. The receiver was held out of practice Thursday, apparently as the organization was formulating its disciplinary response. “We’re trying to handle this in a way that we can discourage this from happening,” McDaniels said. “We didn’t want to be in this situation. We never wanted it to get to this point. I’m sure they didn’t either.” For all the tension and disagreement between the receiver and his coach and organization, McDaniels said he hasn’t given up on the notion that the sides can work things out. “I’m not sure necessarily if I think it will

Denver wide receiver Brandon Marshall waves to spectators as he heads to the practice field to take part in drills at the team's training camp Wednesday, Aug. 19 in Englewood, Colo. or I think it won’t (work out),” McDaniels said. “I’m just hopeful that it will, because obviously he’s a talented football player that we’d love to have pulling in the same direction as the other 79 guys that go out there and work their tail off. “Obviously, there’s a disagreement about some things. We’re trying to make it right, to work through it.” McDaniels said Marshall didn’t play against the Seahawks because he wasn’t prepared to take the field. Marshall also missed the team’s exhibition opener against San Francisco

two weeks ago because he was on trial in Atlanta, where he was acquitted of a misdemeanor battery charge. Prosecutors had accused him of beating his thengirlfriend. Marshall hoped the acquittal would give him leverage for a new deal in Denver or elsewhere. He was angered when the Broncos prohibited teammates from saying they were happy for Marshall about the verdict. That’s when Marshall began spending more time between drills with the scout team and the defensive unit instead of his fellow offensive players.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Webb Simpson looked at the scores and the weather, neither of which indicated an easy time Friday at Liberty National. He quickly settled on a simple game plan Friday and made it pay off in The Barclays. Simpson took advantage on some of the shorter holes to give him a cushion for the inevitable mistakes. It led to a 3-under 68 on a long, tough and wet afternoon that put the 24-year-old rookie atop the leaderboard for the first time all year. “My caddie and I talked beforehand about taking advantage of the par 5s and the shorter par 4s, just because we knew we were going to make bogeys,” Simpson said. “It was just one of those long, tough days. But I feel good with where I’m at.” He was at 8-under 134, two shots clear of Paul Goydos and Steve Marino, who started the second round tied for the lead and did well to get around in even-par 71. Sergio Garcia also was tied for the lead, got stuck in the morning wave and the worst of the rain, and shot a 76. “It was hands down — I mean, forget about the PGA (Championship) — it was the longest course I’ve played this year, the way it was playing,” Garcia said. “I don’t know how many 5-, 4- and 3-irons

I hit into the greens. I hit some woods into the green.” Tiger Woods tried to hit driver onto one green on the 16th, where the tees were moved up. His shot sailed 65 yards wide of his target, over the water hazard, beyond the tee boxes at No. 17. He nearly crushed a tee marker before stopping the club a foot short, and while he made par, it summed up his frustration. Woods had a 72, yet still moved up 10 spots on the leaderboard into a tie for 17th at even-par 142. For the second straight day, he refused to meet with the reporters to discuss his round. Smiles were rare on Friday, except at the top of the leaderboard. The cut came at 5-over 147, matching the highest cut of the year (Bay Hill). Only nine players broke par, one day after there were 26 scores under par. The average score was 74.361, nearly 2 1/2 shots harder than the first round. Simpson and Ernie Els had the low round at 68, and the Big Easy only got there with a driver on the 16th hole that stopped 8 feet from the hole for an eagle. Goydos was atop the leaderboard for most of the round until he finished with three bogeys over his last four holes. He at least was happy to make enough pars and birdies that a sloppy ending to his round didn’t hurt him.

Dispatch seeks new monthly columnists In this space each week, you’ll usually find a column by one of our rotating panel of local pastors who write for The Daily Dispatch on a regular basis once a month. Our current group of contributing pastors has done a wonderful job of providing thoughtful columns each week that challenge our readers’ thinking, bring comfort and encouragement, and point the way to spiritual truths and insights. While each of these pastors would gladly continue to contribute to these pages each week, as your local newspaper, we want to provide an opportunity for readers to hear from as many voices and perspectives as possible. That’s why we’re issuing an open invitation this week to all the pastors in the area who would be interested in being considered as a regular columnist for the Saturday Faith section. Here are the guidelines and requirements: • To be considered as a columnist, applicants must be the pastor of a local congregation in the Tri-County area (Vance, Warren and Granville counties). • Applicants must submit a 500-word sample column by no later than next Friday, Sept. 4, to Linda Gupton, features editor. The sample column can be e-mailed to faith@, faxed to 430-0125, or mailed to The Daily Dispatch, P.O. Box 908, Henderson, N.C., 27536. • The content and writing style of the column should reflect the approach the writer plans to take in his/her regular columns for the paper. • Applicants are asked to include a daytime telephone number and an e-mail address (if possible). Columnists selected by the newspaper staff will be asked to submit a 500-word column once a month for a specific Saturday (i.e., first Saturday of the month, second Saturday of the month, etc.). Columnists will be asked to make a oneyear commitment to writing a regular monthly column. The columnist’s photo will appear with each column, along with a phone number and e-mail address (if possible) where readers can contact the writer. While the content of the monthly column is decided by each writer, we will encourage columnists to write on spiritual or religious subjects that will uplift and challenge our readers in a positive way. The Dispatch staff always retains the right to edit any column submitted. For questions or more information, contact Linda Gupton at 436-2837.

Faith News Guidelines The Daily Dispatch publishes announcements about events and special services at area churches each week in the Saturday paper. News items for the Saturday Faith section must be received by noon on Thursday to be included in that Saturday’s paper. Items can be e-mailed to faith@, faxed to 430-0125, or delivered to the newspaper offices at 304 S. Chestnut St. in downtown Henderson Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Bishop T.D. Jakes asks the crowd to make some noise during the July 2006 opening event of MegaFest at International Plaza in Atlanta.

Dallas Bishop T.D. Jakes counsels patience in economic ‘sorrows’ “After 52 years of living, I’ve learned that all Christians should come to realize that God sends us blessings, but he also sends us tests and challenges.” By TOM BREEN Associated Press Writer

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — As the economy continues to grind away at jobs, homes and lifetimes’ of savings, Bishop Thomas D. Jakes looks back from his position as one of America’s most successful preachers and remembers his own hard times. T.D. Jakes — known internationally by those first two initials, or simply as “bishop” to the people at his 30,000-member Dallas megachurch The Potter’s House — began his life and ministry in West Virginia’s Kanawha Valley. As a young husband and father, he lost his job when the local Union Carbide plant closed, and found himself slipping out of the middle class, working for years at hard jobs for low pay. Eventually, though, he turned a sevenmember church in the tiny town of Montgomery into the vast territories known today as T.D. Jakes Ministries and TDJ Enterprises — discrete kingdoms that nonetheless complement each other, with the Pentecostal-honed Christianity of the former blending with the empower-and-entertain entrepreneurship of the latter. Jakes, 52, preached a sermon on Inauguration Day this year and is frequently mentioned as one of the prospective heirs to Billy Graham’s title as America’s pastor. He eschews an active role in speaking out on issues like abortion and same-sex marriage, though, warning churches not to become better known for politics than for prayer. Instead, as the author of more than 30 best-selling books, producer of films and music and developer of a housing park in Dallas, Jakes displays his social engagement primarily from being a model of business leadership for the African-American community and a source of charity both at home and overseas. Jakes shuns the term “prosperity gospel,” the belief that God is willing and eager to bestow material blessings on the faithful. But he has no problem with being a wealthy Christian, and with instructing other Christians on how they can emulate him. Returning to Charleston this week for a major homecoming conference for the first time since he left for Dallas in 1996, Jakes spoke with The Associated Press about the economy, President Barack Obama and the changing face of American Christianity. Here are his answers in condensed form: ——— Q: What do you say to people who tell you, “I’ve been faithful, and now I’ve lost my job and my house?” Is it wrong for Christians to expect earthly rewards along with heavenly rewards? A: After 52 years of living, I’ve learned

that all Christians should come to realize that God sends us blessings, but he also sends us tests and challenges. It’s a misrepresentation to think we’re going to get all of one and none of the other. Life has a way of bringing both sorrow and success in our lives. Sometimes the test is not how much we get of either, but how we manage both. Financial success, academic success, those don’t exempt us from personal maladies. ——— Q: So there’s no contradiction in being a rich Christian? A: You’re going to have Christians who are successful and Christians who are not. Just like you have Muslims who are successful and Muslims who are not. We’re not a monolith. There are so many factors besides whether someone is Christian. Are you educated? Are you entrepreneurial? ——— Q: You preached a sermon at President Obama’s inauguration and have met with him. What do you think about the job he’s done so far? A: He hit the ground running 100 miles an hour. In some areas the progress has been amazing, but when I look at the work there is to do, though, its a mammoth task. He’s tried to do the things he promised during his campaign, and that’s refreshing. But we’re not all the way there yet. We haven’t had enough details about the health care plan. I’d like to hear more specificity about that. I’m certainly glad to see some glimmers of life in the economy. I do think we’re on the way to a turnaround. ——— Q: The Potter’s House is a nondenominational church, although you were ordained in the Pentecostal tradition. Are denominations losing their significance, especially for Protestants? A: Denominations are not necessarily a bad thing. It’s a way to categorize our belief system. But today, I do find people are not nearly as loyal to the brand of their denomination as much as they are to their commitment to Christ. ——— Q: Is that good? Does that help newer, nondenominational churches at the expense of more traditional churches? A: It’s coming from two sides. Those who are in denominations cannot take parishioners for granted. They have to work hard to see that those people’s needs are met. Those that are not a part of big denominations are no longer exempt from an opportunity to be heard and considered as a major place of

worship. But it’s a new day in other ways and churches have to adapt. One of the things I’m noticing today is people watching ministry over the Internet, participating in services from home. Who would have thought that technology would allow you to have an audience at home as large as the audience in the pews? ——— Q: Surveys suggest that Americans aren’t necessarily turning their backs on spirituality so much as they’re growing disenchanted with established religious traditions. How can Christian churches address that? A: The church has a tendency to show up in the public square, in secular media, enraged about issues and making statements about what they’re against. It has turned off people because it’s caused people to believe that Christianity is a negative religion. We have to talk about what we’re for, rather than what we’re against. We have to make our faith more relative to the needs of this generation. People do want to express their faith. They don’t want to be locked into political entanglements and picketing and fighting. They have problems of their own. They come to church to be uplifted, not enlisted. ——— Q: You’ve had tremendous success with books and programs aimed at women, particularly the multimillion selling “Woman, Thou Art Loosed.” Have traditional churches ignored women, or taken them for granted? A: Any time the preponderance of the people in the pews are different from the people in the pulpit, whether by gender or class or race, we run the risk of lacking the sensitivity to make the appropriate decisions. And historically, the pulpit has been mostly male, and the pews have been mostly female. It’s important that men don’t lose their sensitivity to women’s issues. Women are emerging in all aspects of leadership today, both in the church and outside the church. It’s inevitable that we’ll continue to see women move up the ladder in leadership in the church and society as a whole. ——— Q: If you had to sum up Christianity for someone hearing about it for the first time, what would you say? A: Christ came into the world that we might have life and that we might have it more abundantly. He came to give something to you, not to take something from you. If you open your heart and mind to that, you can receive it.

THAT SCRAMBLED WORD GAME by Mike Argirion and Jeff Knurek

NEW Jumble iPhone App go to:

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

Answer: (Answers Monday) UNCLE OFFSET VASSAL Jumbles: SQUAB Answer: For some, “use less” advice during a water shortage is — USELESS


Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). No one can be “on” all of the time, but you’ll do your best to prove that theory wrong as you complete 100 small tasks by the end of the day. This you do with great charm. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Relationships get tricky. There’s a miscommunication to clear up or move past. Knowing that others might be touchy helps you listen more intently and speak with sensitivity. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your feelings for someone are more intense than you let on. You’re wise to hold back, for a number of reasons. For instance, you may feel differently tomorrow. And if not, going slow adds excitement to this drama. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be around the non-competitive, non-judgmental people who accept you “as is.” However, don’t get too comfortable. You may not have to prove anything to them, but you should still prove it to yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). “Live and let live” is an adage that doesn’t apply to minors. Young people need someone to barge into their business. You might be so bold as to structure their days with a written schedule. They will thrive under your order. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Getting something you wanted may not be as satisfying as you thought it would be. Make sure that you are really following the urgings of your heart and not the cravings of your ego.









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



LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you travel solo, or with one other person, it’s favorable to “wing it.” However, in groups any larger, you need a plan. Reservations are ideal. You’re the ideal activities leader, so step up without fear of coming off too bossy. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Friends will listen more intently to you than usual. They want to be in on your adventures, party to your escapades and privy to your information. You’ll enjoy this wave of interest and attention. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are true blue. When family makes a request, you’ll honor it immediately. When a friend needs you, you’ll be there. As for your own needs, you’ll handle them well, too. You’ll do what you say you’re going to do. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Avoid burn out. Taking a day off from the usual routine is essential to your productivity. Find a new location and a different rhythm. Nudge yourself away from anything that seems too familiar. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll feel a responsibility to keep others entertained. Your history has a tendency to change in the telling. Your mind for details will be overcome by your love of excitement. Your audience will be riveted. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Moments of introspection should bring you solace and strength. If not, something is amiss. Check the tone of your self-talk. Make sure your language is gentle and encouraging.
