Kerr Lake VFD adds equipment to inventory By AL WHELESS Daily Dispatch Writer

Some of the furnishings in the Kerr Lake Volunteer Fire Department’s new fire house are a 1987 Pierce Arrow aerial ladder truck and two other used pieces of military equipment given by the federal government. The Pierce Arrow, a 3,000-gallon water truck and an equipment truck were obtained from the U.S. Department of Defense Fire Fighter Fund through an application filed by the North Carolina Division of Forest Resources. Marshall Humphries,

fire department training specialist with the NCDFR, said Kerr Lake got the aerial truck about two months ago. Besides the U.S. Department of Defense program, Humphries also manages the Federal Excess Personal Property (FEPP) for the state organization. The FEPP loans out equipment and vehicles to fire departments and state agencies, but expects to get them back at some point. The Department of Defense program gives the titles of the vehicles to the fire departments. Hopefully exaggerating,

Program brings ‘citizen teachers’ into classroom at Henderson Middle School As Henderson Middle School students begin to settle into their new class schedules and finish up buying this year’s school supplies, some Henderson community members are gearing up to teach students what they know. These are not classroom teachers — they are “citizen teachers,” volunteers who teach kids about their own profession or life experience. Last school year, Citizen Schools, an education nonprofit organization, partnered with Henderson Middle School to bring 20 community volunteers into the school to teach 10-week apprenticeships during the hours after school. Each apprenticeship gave students the opportunity to learn by doing while being taught by experts. Students designed a business plan for a school fundraiser with two senior vice presidents from Variety Wholesalers, learned to fly with a NASA/SEMAA aeronautics lab coordinator, produced a radio broadcast on WARR 1520 AM, and taught safety skills to stu-

dents at Rollins Elementary with the Henderson Police Department. One apprenticeship, taught by Joseph Tyler from the Bioprocess Technology Department at Vance-Granville Community College, focused on yogurt microbiology and showed students how to employ scientific methods to develop different flavors of yogurt. Students were exposed to bioprocess technology, a growing field of scientific inquiry in high demand in North Carolina, by rolling up their sleeves and having fun. “I really enjoyed the enthusiasm and energy the students brought to the project,” said Tyler, who plans to teach again this fall. That energy and enthusiasm didn’t end with the study of bioprocess technology. Students were engaged across the board and proved it with a daily attendance rate of over 90 percent. A huge success, especially given that high attendance rates have been found to be highly correlated with lower dropout rates. Program

Jameel Williams speaks to educators in Granville, Halifax and Nash counties E. Jameel Williams, state president of the N.C. Educational Support Professionals Association and a member of the board of directors for the National Education Association, spoke recently to members of the Halifax County Association of Educators, the Granville County Association of Educators, and the Nash County/Rocky Mount Association of Educators during each group’s annual training session in preparation for the upcoming Williams school year. Part of the training teaches local representatives how to recruit and maintain members in their local association and how to convince educators that they need to belong to their professional organization. The N.C. Association of Educators is the largest teacher organizaStaff Staff

tion in North Carolina. Williams is employed with the Vance County schools as a teacher assistant/bus driver at Lelia B. Yancey Elementary School. He spoke on the importance of being a member of the association and how members can help their local association.

surveys show that parents, volunteers, teachers and school staff gave the program a “thumbs up” as well. “We saw an excellent response to the Citizen Schools program in its first year at the school,” said Victor Fenner, principal of Henderson Middle School. “The students were excited about learning and began to see how grades and schoolwork are relevant to their own lives and aspirations for adulthood.” As the program prepares to launch its second year in Henderson, Citizen Schools

staff members are putting the final touches on curricula for the fall and volunteers continue to sign up to teach apprenticeships ranging from entrepreneurship to health services. A handful of volunteer slots are still open. For more information on Citizen Schools and how you or your organization can get involved, visit or call (704) 332-3645.

nearly $51 million were awarded for bridge and highway projects across the state, including eight projects funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, better known as the federal stimulus designed to help jumpstart the weak national economy. The work in Granville and Person counties will be paid for with state funds.

NCDOT said there is not a breakdown of what each section of road in Granville and Person will cost because the contract bids that were solicited were for the 12 road projects combined and were not priced by county or individually. Granville already is the scene of roadwork, with the advance patching in progress on the segment of U.S. 158/Oxford Loop

JACKSONVILLE (AP) — A 4-month-old North Carolina baby whose toes were chewed off by a pit bull is in stable condition. The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday that the baby, who lost the toes on the left foot after the dog chewed them off Sunday night, won’t be released from Pitt Memorial Hospital any time soon. The sheriff’s office said the pit bull is in animal control custody undergoing

medical tests for several diseases, including rabies. The child’s mother, Robie Lynn Jenkins, and her boyfriend, Tremayne Spillman, are charged with felony child abuse. The couple was dog-sitting for a man arrested Saturday night for illegal possession of a gun. Authorities moved the couple from the county jail to the hospital to undergo testing as part of the investigation.

“I figured it would be usable and serviceable, but I didn’t think its condition would be this good,” the chief added. “We’re grateful for the programs,” he said. “Without them, we would be scrapping and scrounging.” Contact the writer at

RALEIGH (AP) — A North Carolina child who died this summer had a case of mosquito-borne LaCrosse encephalitis. The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services said Tuesday the virus caused the Swain County child’s death — the state’s first such fatal case since at least 2001. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed the case from lab specimens. A state spokesman didn’t immediately have identifying information for the child, who was hospitalized in July

ay yd r e Ev

and died a week later. LaCrosse encephalitis is the state’s most common mosquito-borne disease, although it’s usually confined to western counties. The disease is most prevalent among the elderly and children. Common symptoms are fever, headache, nausea and vomiting. More severe or rare reactions may include convulsions and coma.

Feds froze $29,000 in N.C. terror suspect’s accounts RALEIGH (AP) — A North Carolina terrorism suspect who deplored the U.S. banking system’s ties to non-Muslims had nearly $29,000 in bank accounts, according to warrants released Tuesday. Federal agents in early August froze a total of $28,940 in two Wachovia accounts that Daniel Patrick Boyd could access, according to court papers. Prosecutors have charged Boyd with plotting international terrorism, saying that he was gather-

Chimps evacuating from L.A. fire tried to escape LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two chimpanzees that were evacuated from an animal sanctuary threatened by wildfire have been recaptured after they escaped from their crates while being unloaded at the Los Angeles Zoo. Zoo spokesman Jason Jacobs says the female chimps fled Tuesday afternoon, prompting zoo visitors to evacuate. One chimp made her way to the small primates and bird exhibit before being tranquilized about 20 minutes later. The other climbed over the fence and into Griffith Park. She was spotted about an hour later and was led into the back of a truck by her trainer. They were among 400 animals, including lions and tigers, that were evacuated from the Wildlife Waystation as a giant wildfire burns in the Angeles National Forest.

This blows! $5,000 horn, trumpet stolen NEW YORK (AP) — Police are searching for a thief who made off with a musician’s pricey

ing cash to pursue violent jihad overseas. Previous warrants showed that agents seized some $14,000 in cash from the Boyd home. He was arrested last month along with two of his sons and four others. An eighth suspect is still at large and believed to be in Pakistan. In a secretly recorded conversation with a government witness, Boyd decried the U.S. banking system as the main ammunition of the “Kuffar� — Arabic for

flugelhorn after he fell asleep on a New York City subway train. The 29-year-old musician says he was on an N train in Queens last week and nodded off. When he awoke as he approached the last stop, he noticed his black leather case was missing. Police say the case held the curvy, Swissmade horn and a Bach Stradivarius trumpet. The flugelhorn retails for more than $5,000, the trumpet for about $2,000. The musician reported the theft Monday. Police are asking for anyone with information to call them.

Police: No link between kidnap suspects, slayings PITTSBURG, Calif. (AP) — Police in the Northern California city of Pittsburg say they have found no evidence to connect kidnapping suspect Phillip Garrido or his wife to several unsolved murders. Following Jaycee Lee Dugard’s reappearance last week after 18 years missing, Pittsburg police focused on Garrido in connection to the slayings of

nonbelievers. After bragging about robbing banks in Pakistan, he talked about returning to those exploits, discussing the merits of “hitting the Wells Fargo trucks and banks.� He said the money was insured, so banks get hurt but people don’t. “We must be ready for the sake of Allah,� he said in recordings of the conversation, which were played in a detention hearing last month. An attorney for Boyd did not

prostitutes in the 1990s. Police spokesman Lt. Brian Addington said after four days of searching Garrido’s house, backyard and a neighbor’s yard, they found no clear link. Addington said authorities will have to conduct further forensic examination on a few items they found to completely rule them out as evidence. Authorities said Monday they found one small bone fragment in the neighbor’s yard but did not know whether it was human.

Plastic bag ban tested on N.C. Outer Banks MANTEO (AP) — An experiment ordering big grocery stores to stop giving away disposable plastic bags on North Carolina’s Outer Banks has taken effect. The law that took effect Tuesday means big stores on the barrier islands must offer paper bags made of 100 percent recycled paper or coax customers to try reusable shopping bags. The law only applies to large stores on islands or peninsulas in Dare, Currituck and Hyde counties.

Boyd’s son, Dylan, told federal agents after his arrest that the family typically deals in cash, noting that Muslims do not like to deal with banks because the banks get to use the invested money for any purpose they want, according to a summary of Dylan Boyd’s interview. A separate warrant released Tuesday shows that agents froze more than $6,000 in the bank account of suspect Hysen Sherifi.

Supporters say the law is designed to preserve the environment and protect wildlife. Environmentalists say the bags can be swallowed by turtles that choke on them.

Police: Standoff at Texas home ends with 3 dead GALVESTON, Texas (AP) — Police in Galveston, Texas say three people died in an apparent double-murder suicide after an eight-hour, overnight standoff with authorities. Galveston Police Lt. D.J. Alvarez identified two victims as 51-year-old Joyce Bell Randle and her 21-year-old daughter, Jacqueline Evette Randle. The identity of the third person, a man, wasn’t immediately released. Police in this coastal city 50 miles southeast of Houston say the standoff began Monday night after neighbors reported hearing gunfire inside the home.

Idaho school sues state over plan to use Bible

Perdue open to broader Indian casino gambling

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A public charter school is suing Idaho officials, saying the state illegally barred use of the Bible as an instructional text. The Arizona-based Alliance Defense Fund filed suit Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Boise on behalf of Nampa Classical Academy in Idaho. The charter school is scheduled to open Sept. 8 and had planned to use the Bible as a primary source of teaching material, but not to teach religion. The Idaho Public Charter School Commission said last month that the school couldn’t use the Bible because the state constitution “expressly� limits use of religious texts. The Alliance Defense Fund says the school has a statutory right to choose its own curriculum and the Bible shouldn’t be singled out for censorship.

WHITTIER (AP) — North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue says the state hasn’t ruled out Las Vegas-style card games at a Cherokee Indian casino in the Great Smoky Mountains. The Asheville CitizenTimes reported Tuesday that Perdue said state officials and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians have no negotiations under way to expand gambling at the 11-year-old casino. Perdue says working out a state budget and dealing with the recession have taken priority since she took office in January. The tribe has long sought state approval for live gambling at the Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, which now offers video gambling machines and digital blackjack with a live dealer. Federal law gives governors the authority to negotiate gambling agreements with tribes.

Clunkers aid Ford, Toyota sales; GM, Chrysler fall and


DETROIT — The Cash for Clunkers program boosted sales at Ford, Toyota and Honda in August as consumers snapped up their fuel-efficient offerings, but rivals Chrysler Group LLC and General Motors Co. withstood another month of falling sales. The program, which ended on Aug. 24, drew hordes of buyers into quiet showrooms by offering up to $4,500 toward new, more fuel-efficient cars and trucks. The hefty rebates gave automakers and dealers a much-needed lift, spurring 690,114 new sales, many of them during August, at a taxpayer cost of $2.88 billion. Other automakers are expected to release U.S. sales figures later Tuesday. Combined, the results are likely to mark the first year-overyear monthly sales gain since October 2007. Ford Motor Co. sold 181,826 cars and light trucks compared with 155,117 in August 2008, when high gas prices and growing economic

uncertainty kept people away from showrooms. Two of Ford’s vehicles — the Focus and Escape — were among the top selling cars under the clunkers program. Sales of the Focus rose 56 percent while those of the Escape crossover vehicle climbed 49 percent. Japanese automakers Toyota Motor Corp. and Honda Motor Co. also posted gains year-over-year gains in August. Toyota sales rose 6.4 percent to 225,088, lifted by small cars like the Corolla, the best-selling clunkers vehicle. Honda sales rose 9.9 percent to 161,439, also largely on the strength of its fuel-efficient offerings. Meanwhile, low supplies of fuel-efficient vehicles at Chrysler kept the automaker from benefiting more from the clunkers program, whose rebates encouraged customers to buy gas sippers in exchange for guzzlers with gas mileage of 18 mpg or less. Chrysler sales fell 15 percent to 93,222 units. Going into August, five of Chrysler’s most efficient vehicles were already at low inventory levels. Those vehicles — the Dodge Caliber, the

U.S. manufacturing activity, new orders grow in August By TALI ARBEL AP Business Writer

NEW YORK — The U.S. manufacturing sector grew in August for the first time in 19 months, adding to evidence that the recession is ending. The better-than-expected reading Tuesday by the Institute for Supply Management showed the highest number for its manufacturing index since June 2007. New customer orders jumped to a level not seen since late 2004. And in another sign of an improving economy, a gauge of future U.S. home sales rose more than expected in July to the highest point in more than two years. The reports raised hopes for a broad economic rebound. Still, as long as consumers remain hamstrung by weak pay and job losses, and wary of ramping up spending, the economy might not be able to sustain a recovery. The ISM, a trade group of purchasing executives, said its manufacturing index rose to 52.9 in August, from 48.9 in July. It’s the first reading

Chrysler Sebring, the Jeep Patriot, the Jeep Compass and the Dodge Avenger — all qualified as Cash for Clunkers purchases. To make up for the shortfalls, Chrysler is boosting production by 50,000 vehicles of most of its vehicles through the end of the year. At General Motors Co., sales fell 20 percent to 245,550. GM said its inventory levels hit an all-time low of 379,000 during August. GM vehicles like the Chevrolet Aveo subcompact, the Cobalt sedan and Equinox crossover got a lift from the clunkers program. No GM vehicles made the closely watched list of top-10 Cash for Clunkers sales, but they had the largest market share behind Japan’s Toyota Motor Corp. GM also said it was extending through the end of September its test program selling vehicles on eBay. Consumers are expected to steer clear of dealers this autumn now that the clunker rebates are no longer available. Dan Strumpf reported from New York.

York’s LaGuardia Airport. The airline said it planned to cut 1,200 flight attendant jobs but was able to reduce the number by adjusting staffing requirements for the winter. The airline said in June that it would cut jobs as it reduced flights to meet lower travel demand. The workers’ union, the Association of Professional Flight Attendants, said it had worked with the company to avoid even more layoffs by offering

employees voluntary leave and the two-month forced absences. The 244 employees who will be placed on “involuntary overage leave” won’t work in October and November, when air traffic is expected to be very weak. They will return to work in December, the union said. American’s traffic plunged 10 percent in the first half of this year compared to the same period of 2008, as the recession grounded many travelers.

Plane makes emergency Mobile home slayings landing on Mass. highway hit extended Ga. family MANSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A small plane with engine trouble made an emergency landing on a Massachusetts highway late Tuesday morning, causing a traffic jam but no injuries. The two men aboard had been practicing stalls — slowing down the airspeed to the point that the wings stopped giving the plane lift, said Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Jim Peters. “But the engine just quit and didn’t restart,” said Peters. Around 11 a.m., the pilot called Norwood Memorial Airport to report that he was having engine trouble and would have to land the 35-year-old single-engine Piper Cherokee on Interstate 495 in Mansfield, about 25 miles southwest of Boston, Peters said. The pilot and passenger were already out of the plane when Mansfield fire officials arrived soon after the landing. The two were evaluated by paramedics as a precaution. State police identified the pilot as Matthew Klein-

Police said the plane, which was first reported on the highway at around 11 a.m., landed about a mile from Mansfield airport. There were no reports of injuries. dienst, 24, of Stoughton, and the passenger as Brian Souza, 21, of Stoneham. The plane wound up nosedown and with a collapsed undercarriage, taking up nearly all three southbound lanes of the highway. Firefighters used foam and sand to soak up leaking fuel. State police temporarily closed the entire southbound side of Interstate 495 on

Tuesday afternoon as authorities removed the plane. The lanes were reopened just before rush hour traffic. A plane with the same registration number is listed on the Web site of East Coast Aero Club, a Bedford-based flight school and rental entity. Mark Holzwarth, president and owner of East Coast Aero Club, did not immediately return phone calls.

Trace Adkins to perform anthem at Flight 93 site SHANKSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Country musician Trace Adkins will perform the national anthem at this year’s ceremony honoring the people who died on United Airlines Flight 93 when it crashed in Pennsylvania on Sept. 11, 2001. The National Park Service and the Families of Flight 93

group announced Tuesday that Adkins will perform this Sept. 11. Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell will be the keynote speaker. The plane was traveling from Newark, N.J., to San Francisco when it was diverted by hijackers likely seeking to crash it into the White House or Capitol.

The 9/11 Commission report said the hijackers crashed the plane as passengers tried to seize control of the cockpit. All 33 passengers and seven crew members died. A $58 million, 2,200-acre memorial is scheduled to open on the 10th anniversary of the attack.

Kathleen Bergen says the helicopter is a Robinson R-44 that went down about a half mile east of Hawkins Airport. She says there are no reports of injuries on the ground or property damage.

BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) — Eight people slain in a coastal Georgia mobile home over the weekend were members of an extended family, police and relatives said Tuesday. Police released the names and ages of the dead three days after the carnage was reported in a frantic call by a relative who returned from a night out and found the G. Heinze Jr. bodies. No suspect has been named and autopsy results have not been released. The dead included Russell D. Toler Sr., 44, and his four children: Chrissy Toler, 22; Russell D. Toler Jr., 20; Michael Toler, 19; and Michelle Toler, 15. Guy Heinze Sr., 45, was also among the victims. His son, Guy Heinze Jr., told an emergency dispatcher he had found his father, his uncle and several cousins apparently beaten to death. Also killed were Brenda Gail Falagan, 49, and Joseph L. West, 30. Falagan was identified by a funeral home as Toler Sr.’s sister. West’s connection to the family was not known. The sole survivor, whose name has not been released, remains in critical condition. Kathy Clock, administrative assistant to Joseph Iannicelli, who owns the New Hope Plantation mobile home park, said not all nine of the victims lived in Toler Sr.’s small trailer, but all stayed there

at times. They were planning to move because they needed more space. People who knew Toler Sr., who went by Rusty, said he was loyal and loved his children. “Rusty took care of family,” Clock said. “If you needed a place to sleep, there was a place to sleep.” Toler Sr. worked parttime doing maintenance and odd jobs at the mobile home park and at a plant down the street that dries chemicals and other substances, said Iannicelli, who owns both. “He had worked for the company for more than 20 years, and he will be sorely missed,” Iannicelli said. Mark Hill, who was once married to Toler Sr.’s ex-wife, was stepfather to the four younger Tolers and said they were well-mannered and wellbehaved. “Every one of them were good kids,” Hill said. An acquaintance of Toler Sr., Sam Davis, said he and his children used to stop in at the convenience store where Davis worked when the family lived in nearby Townsend. “He was just a nice guy. Quiet, humble. He’d do anything for anybody in the world,” Davis said. “He looked like he loved his kids. I’d see him stop by with them going on fishing trips.” Police have released little information about the case that has rocked this port city between Savannah and Jacksonville, Florida, saying they don’t want to jeopardize their investigation. A recording of the 12-minute emergency call by Heinze Jr., 22, has provided some of the only details about the crime.

He screamed, “My whole family’s dead!” and struggled to describe what he saw, at one point returning to the mobile home to find his cousin Michael, whom he said had Down syndrome, barely breathing. “Michael’s alive, tell them to hurry!” Heinze Jr. yelled in the background as a maintenance man at the mobile home park spoke with a dispatcher. “He’s beat up! His face is smashed in!” Several hours later, police arrested Heinze Jr. on charges of drug possession, tampering with evidence and lying to a police officer. Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering said he isn’t calling Heinze Jr. a suspect in the killings but isn’t ruling him out. Heinze’s attorney said he is distraught over the slayings and was not involved. Michael Toler died Sunday at a Savannah hospital. A graveside service was tentatively set for the Tolers, Heinze and Falagan on Saturday, according to the Howard-Jones-Nobles Funeral Home. Details of West’s funeral were not immediately available. Associated Press writer Greg Bluestein in Atlanta contributed to this report.

Antwan Maurice Pittman, 31, was charged with one count of first-degree murder in the death of 28-year-old Taraha Shenice Nicholson. Her body was discovered north of Rocky Mount in March. Pittman did not yet have an attorney. Wright would not comment on a possible link between Pittman and the other five women, saying only that the investigation is ongoing. Pittman is a registered sex offender, convicted in November 1994 of taking indecent liberties with a 2-year-old. Correction Department spokesman Keith Acree said Pittman received probation for his three-year sentence, but the probation was revoked. He went to prison in January 1996 and was released

asked the FBI to consult after a sixth body was found along rural roads outside Rocky Mount. Pepita Hargrove said Tuesday her family hadn’t been notified of the news conference. The killing of her sister, Jarneice Hargrove, prompted the formation of the task force. The SBI told her last week they had chased down 300 leads and had identified some suspects, but Hargrove is impatient for answers. “It took six women to die for the community to even find out about it — they didn’t want the little town of Rocky Mount to be on the map ... and now it’s national news,” she said. “It should have been national news when two girls were killed,” she added.

in April 1997. Acree said Pittman’s most recent probation ended in November 2008, after he was convicted of misdemeanor driving while impaired and sentenced to probation. He has also been arrested in years past on misdemeanor charges such as simple assault, larceny, and trespassing and resisting a public officer. According to the state sex offender registry, his most recent address is in Rocky Mount in Nash County, which adjoins Edgecombe. But court records also indicate numerous other addresses in recent years in both counties. The sheriff’s office formed a task force in June with the State Bureau of Investigation and

News Briefs Asst N.C. auditor sues, says he’s target for firing

DMV closes license agency as worker is arrested

RALEIGH (AP) — A North Carolina State Auditor’s Office employee alleges he’s being unfairly targeted for firing because he’s a Republican and wrote some letters to a newspaper. Darryl Black sued in Wake County court, asking a judge to prevent State Auditor Beth Wood’s office from terminating his employment without due process and a hearing to challenge it. Wood spokesman Dennis Patterson said a response wasn’t complete Tuesday but that Black’s assertions will be challenged. Black’s lawsuit filed two weeks ago said he worked in the office when Republican Les Merritt was auditor. Wood is a Democrat. Black said his newspaper letters stopped last year but his supervisor questions his objectivity as an assistant auditor. Black said he was offered a buyout last month.

RALEIGH (AP) — The state Division of Motor Vehicles says a former employee at a central North Carolina license plate agency has been arrested on felony charges. The DMV said Tuesday that Zoila Bustos-Perez was charged with misapplication of government property, obtaining state vehicle titles by false pretense, and accessing state government computers to defraud the state. She had worked at the Winston-Salem license agency for six years. Officials said the license agency has been shut down pending an audit of financial activity, an ongoing investigation into criminal activities and a contract review. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is also investigating the matter. Bustos-Perez did not have a listed attorney at the detention center in Forsyth County.

The Fayetteville Observer reported that the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said a pit bull deflated all four tires of a deputy’s cruiser near Hope Mills on Sunday. Sheriff’s spokeswoman Debbie Tanna says the deputy parked his car in a woman’s driveway while responding to her complaint about another dog. Tanna says that when Deputy Lynn Lavallis went to speak with Gloria Bass, her dog bit the four tires. The dog didn’t attack the deputy. Tanna says Bass will be billed for the $500 that the new tires cost.

Killer gets life for Valentine’s Day rampage in N.Y. CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. (AP) — A twice-fired nursing supervisor drew a life sentence for shooting a couple to death during a Valentine’s Day rampage that left four people dead in upstate New York. Investigators say Frank Garcia was enraged at two co-workers who accused him of sexual harassment and got him fired from successive jobs. The 35-year-old was convicted of killing Kimberly and Christopher Glatz at their home in Canandaigua on Feb. 14. He showed no emotion Tuesday as he received the maximum sentence of life without the possibility of parole. Garcia will be tried in November for a pre-dawn attack that day. Nurse Mary Silliman was slain along with a motorist who intervened when he saw her being roughed up outside a hospital in Brockport.

Our Opinion

Post etiquette, post-warning With the launch of our new Web site recently — and an admonishment in this space for our users to try and be civil with one another with our new “comments” capabilities — it’s worth pausing after a few days to see how we’re all doing. … It’s hit and miss. With thousands of visits to the site and dozens of comments now posted, it’s safe to say that the majority of people are — more or less — adhering to the spirit of our rules. That is, rules which are somewhat ambiguous, since we will not edit comments, only allow them to stay or force them to go away. The net result so far is that about one in every six comments posted on our site — specifically, 15.7 percent of posts — don’t pass muster. We found ourselves with no choice but to delete them. Typically the decision was reached because the posts were personally insulting beyond a reasonable individual’s definition of good taste. In one case, insults from one source were copied, then pasted onto ours, to illustrate someone else’s bad behavior. We particularly don’t need problems coming in from elsewhere, whether that’s another Web site, your e-mail or what you’ve overheard on the street. Users certainly don’t have to “keep it positive.” We aren’t the mandatory peace, love and brotherhood police here. Disagreement will occur. Just try not to go overboard. And most of the time, regardless how upset they’ve become, our Web site-posters have been able to dangle over the edge of the boat without getting soaking wet.

Quotable “The situation in Afghanistan is serious and success demands a revised implementation strategy, commitment and resolve, and increased unity of effort.” — Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the top commander in Afghanistan, in a statement after delivering his much-anticipated strategic review of the Afghan war to the Pentagon and NATO headquarters. “I was 14. You took my adolescence, my trust, my dream and completely manipulated them for your sexual desires. It sickens me that a grown man can do such a thing to a girl. A girl who was naive and had the belief that all people were good. And you took that to your advantage.” — One of three women who spoke in the courtroom, after fashion designer Anand Jon Alexander was sentenced to 59 years to life in prison for sexually assaulting aspiring models he lured to Los Angeles. “It’s important that historical justice be restored. It’s important that our nations are able to establish normal relations But we do not regard a recognition of genocide as a preliminary condition for establishing relations.” — Armenian President Serge Sarkisian, in an interview published by the BBC Russian service after Armenia and Turkey took a step toward reconciliation by announcing they would launch final talks aimed at establishing diplomatic ties.

And what should we do with our monsters? That we have no answer to that question, that we lack consensus on what to do with sexual predators, is evident from the range of our responses to their crimes. From the Catholic Church shielding pederastic priests to the profusion of databases that let you check if your neighbor is a sex offender, to the pseudo celebrity enjoyed by Mary Kay Letourneau when she married her former student Vili Fualaau, whom she raped when he was 12 and she was 34, our responses scream irresolution. And then, there is Miami, which inadvertently created a shanty town of sex offenders with an overly-broad law forbidding all of them — from the lowly peeping Tom to the psychotic rapist — from living within 2,500 feet of places where children gather. We don’t know what to do with our monsters. But I submit that we owe it to Jaycee Dugard to learn. We have all been duly appalled by her story, of course: she was a sun-kissed 11-yearold from South Lake Tahoe who was snatched in 1991

before her stepfather’s horrified eyes. She was rescued last week, a 29-year-old woman who has spent the intervening 18 years living in a shabby warren of tents, tarps and sheds in the back yard of her captors, registered sex offender Leonard Phillip Garrido and Pitts his wife, Distributed by Nancy. Cagle Cartoons Maybe you think the most horrific part of this story is that Dugard allegedly bore two children by Garrido, the first born when she was about 14. Maybe you think it’s that authorities could have rescued her three years ago — neighbors called 911 to report children living in the back yard — but failed to do so. Maybe you think it’s the 18 years of life and education (Garrido did not allow her to go to school) she lost, irretrievably. Maybe you think it is her psychological ruination.

All that is heart-tearing, I agree. But what gets me is that Garrido should never have been on the street in the first place. When he allegedly took Dugard, Garrido was on parole for the 1976 rape and kidnapping of a young woman. For this, he was given a 50year federal sentence and — the crime crossed state lines — a life sentence in Nevada. He got out after 11 years. Ordinarily, I am not much for mandatory minimum sentencing and other “toughon-crime” measures politicians pass when they want to look as if they are doing something. Such laws have a tendency to remove human judgment (and common sense) from the equation and to produce as many miscarriages of justice as justice itself. I make an exception for sexual predators who prey on children. The crime is viscerally repulsive, yes; the idea of some pervert violating the body and vandalizing the innocence of a child stirs fundamental disgust. Indeed, child rapists are said to be the one kind of criminal even criminals loathe.

But the bigger reason I make an exception is simply this: at least some of them apparently can’t help themselves, driven by compulsions they can’t control and science cannot yet cure. Granted, the research that exists on the subject is sparse and often contradictory. It is hard to determine true recidivism rates due to a number of variables, beginning with the question of how recidivism itself is defined (e.g., by re-arrest or re-conviction). By some estimates, as many as half of all pedophiles will commit the crime again. Others put the figure far lower. My problem is, I don’t know what figure is low enough that I would feel safe allowing a Phillip Garrido to ever again breathe free air. His alleged crime brings me out from irresolution and into a cold clarity. It makes the question easy. What should we do with these monsters? Simple. Lock them up. Lose the key.

Other Views Local airports need contingency plans News of the passengers who spent the night trapped in a plane at the Rochester, Minn., airport likely left most readers shaking their heads in disbelief.

Global warming? Pay no heed to that burning ball of gas in the sky On the last day of August, scientists spotted a teeny-weeny sunspot, breaking a 51-day streak of blemish-free days for the sun. If it had gone just a bit longer, it would have broken a 96-year record of 53 days without any of the magnetic disruptions that cause solar flares. That record was nearly broken last year as well. Wait, it gets even more exciting. During what scientists call the Maunder Minimum — a period of solar inactivity from 1645 to 1715 — the world experienced the worst of the cold streak dubbed the Little Ice Age. At Christmastime, Londoners ice-skated on the Thames, and New Yorkers (then New Amsterdamers) sometimes walked over the Hudson from Manhattan to Staten Island. Of course, it could have been a coincidence. The Little Ice Age began before the onset of the Maunder Minimum. Many scientists think volcanic activity was a more likely, or at least a more significant, culprit. Or perhaps the big chill was, in the words of scientist Alan Cutler, writing in the Washington Post in 1997, a “one-two punch from a dimmer sun and a dustier atmosphere.” Well, we just might find out. A new study in the American Geophysical Union’s journal Eos suggests that we may be heading into another quiet phase similar to the Maunder Minimum. Meanwhile, the journal Science reports that a study led by the National Center for Atmospheric Research, or NCAR, has finally figured out why increased sunspots have a dramatic effect on the weather, increasing temperatures more than the increase in solar energy should explain. Apparently, sunspots heat the stratosphere, which in turn amplifies the warming of the climate.

Scientists have known for centuries that sunspots affected the climate; they just never understood how. Now, allegedly, the mystery has been solved. Last month, in another study, also released in Science, Oregon State University researchers claimed to settle the debate over what caused and ended Jonah last Ice Goldberg the Age. In-

creased solar radiation coming from slight changes in the Earth’s rotation, not greenhouse gas levels, were to blame. What is the significance of all this? To say I have no idea is quite an understatement, but it will have to do. Nonetheless, what I find interesting is the eagerness of the authors and the media to make it clear that this doesn’t have any particular significance for the debate over climate change. “For those wondering how the (NCAR) study bears on global warming, Gerald Meehl, lead author on the study, says that it doesn’t — at least not directly,” writes Moises VelasquezManoff of the Christian Science Monitor. “Global warming is a long-term trend, Dr. Meehl says. ... This study attempts to explain the processes behind a periodic occurrence.” This overlooks the fact that solar cycles are permanent “periodic occurrences,” a.k.a. a very long-term trend. Yet Meehl insists the only significance for the debate is that his study proves climate modeling is steadily improving. I applaud Meehl’s reluctance to go beyond where the science takes him. For all I know he’s Tribune Media Services

GOP’s health care road show: McConnell, McCain By LAURIE KELLMAN and MITCH WEISS Associated Press Writers

CHARLOTTE — An odd couple of Republican senators have hit the road, arguing for a go-slow approach to President Barack Obama’s push to revamp health care.

mean our most famous loser.” Hardly an upbeat outlook, but on health care they have reasons to work together and try to frame Republican opposition to a comprehensive health care overhaul in thoughtful and credible terms. Start with the GOP’s drive to recover in next year’s midterm elections after the drubbing Republicans took from Obama and the Democrats in 2008. To do that, they must bring the Democrats down a notch from an effective hold on 60 Senate votes, potentially enough to kill GOP filibusters and control policy. Political recovery is an issue for McCain, too. The decorated war veteran and recognized expert on national security and campaign finance reform has largely deferred to other Republicans on health care although the Arizona lawmaker is a member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. But in recent weeks, McCain has been outspoken on health care overhaul and its pricetag of $1 trillion-plus over 10 years and basing his argument on his reputation as a deficit hawk. Together, McConnell and McCain — joined by other Republican senators — held campaign-style events at tightly controlled events in Missouri, North Carolina and Florida on Monday and Tuesday with Congress set to return next week. Missouri Sen. Kit Bond, Richard Burr of North Carolina and Mel Martinez of Florida hosted the discussions. The Na-

tional Republican Senatorial Committee paid for travel-related expenses. On Monday, at a Kansas City, Mo., hospital, McCain and McConnell appeared before a group of about 100 health care professionals — half invited by the retiring Republican senator and half by the hospital. In Charlotte on Tuesday, McCain cited his credentials as a deficit hawk and faulted Obama for not offering his own health care plan — echoing a complaint from former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, R-Kan. Democratic leaders have said that health care must be revamped to make it more affordable and accessible. McConnell called for Congress “to step back, start over and think about incremental changes” to the health care system and warned against Democrats using procedural maneuvers to ram through their version without Republican support. The Republican road show reached Palmetto General Hospital in Hialeah, Fla., northwest of Miami, where an invitation-only crowd — many of them doctors and hospital administrators — greeted the senators with a standing ovation. Joined by Martinez, the senators cautioned against an overhaul so sweeping it would affect one-sixth of the economy. Kellman reported from Washington. Associated Press Writer Matt Sedensky in Hialeah, Fla., contributed to this report.

Colts ground Eagles in five By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor

After losing a tough fourth set 25-11, Crossroads needed a big rebound in the fifth and final set to come away with a win Tuesday. The pendulum swung back and forth between the Colts and Wayne Christian, and it swung back in the Colts’ favor in the final set as they won 15-8 to take the match. After losing set one 25-20, the Colts took the next two. Set three was back-and-forth the entire way, with the Colts winning 28-26. But all the momentum left after the Eagles jumped out to a 17-7 lead in set four. Keesha Via took a timeout to get them refocused, but the Colts couldn’t mount a rally

big enough to make it close. Via said she was forced to make a lineup change going into the decisive set. “One of our problems this year is our serve-receive, so sometimes I have to make that change where I just have to throw somebody in there to change up the passing,” she said. “I think that helped us to push through the fifth (set) and give us a nice set so we could actually kill the ball.” The match opened with the two teams trading points early, as they would for much of the match. The score was tied at 10, 14 and 16 before Wayne began to break away. They ended with a 9-2 run to take the set.

Sharapova wins easily over Pironkova at U.S. Open By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer

NEW YORK — Maria Sharapova simply couldn’t bear the thought of a U.S. Open taking place without her. So while sidelined with a torn shoulder a year ago, she refused to follow the tournament on TV. Basically pretended it wasn’t even happening. On Tuesday night, Sharapova was right where she likes to be: on the Grand Slam stage and in the spotlight. The 2006 U.S. Open champion returned to the tournament with an impressive 6-3, 6-0 victory over Tsvetana

Pironkova of Bulgaria. “I was in the physical therapy office every single day, and the tennis was on. But I made a point not to watch it,” Sharapova explained. “When you’re not participating in a tournament that you very much love, and you’ve had success at, as an athlete and as a competitor, to not be there and not be competing is pretty tough.” Against her 98th-ranked opponent, Sharapova’s game was as glittery as her black-and-silver dress and matching headwrap, an outfit she described as a Please see OPEN, page 3B

NBA Kahn: Rubio backed out of coming to T-Wolves MINNEAPOLIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Timberwolves president David Kahn says Spanish point guard Ricky Rubio has backed out of a deal to play in Minnesota this season. Kahn says the Wolves negotiated a deal on Saturday night with Rubioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spanish pro team and agent Dan Fegan to bring the 18-year-old to Minnesota this fall. But Rubio informed Kahn on Monday night that he would prefer to stay in his homeland for two more years to better prepare himself for the NBA. Kahn says DKV Joventut has agreed to trade Rubio to Regal FC Barcelona, where he will play until 2011. The Timberwolves selected Rubio with the fifth pick in the June draft. Kahn was aware that Rubio was under contract with DKV Joventut for the next two years and said he would be fine waiting for a season, or even two, before the prodigy comes to Minnesota. But Kahn made three trips to Spain, including last weekend, in hopes of negotiating down an $8 million buyout that would allow Rubio to join the Timberwolves this season, bringing some excitement and pizazz to a team, and a ticket box office, that sorely needs both right now. NBA rules limit the Timberwolves to contributing just $500,000 toward the buyout, meaning Rubio was on the hook for the remaining $7.5 million. Yet just as the team appeared to be putting the finishing touches on a deal to bring Rubio to the NBA, Rubio came to Kahn with second thoughts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This morning I met with Ricky and his parents and told them that I understood Rickyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision,â&#x20AC;? Kahn said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was clear to me yesterday and in this morningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting that the pressure surrounding Ricky and his family to remain in Spain for at least two more years had only intensified as the summer wore on and was weighing heavily on them.â&#x20AC;?

For his career, he is averaging 9.4 points in 351 games, including 109 starts. At 6-feet-6, Daniels gives the Celtics a big guard to come off the bench. They already have 6-foot-1 Eddie House, known for his 3-point shooting, to substitute for starters Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo.

NFL Dolphins sign Williams to extension MIAMI (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ricky Williams wants to stick around the NFL a little longer. Williams signed a one-year contract extension that will keep him with the Miami Dolphins through 2010, according to salary information posted on the NFL Players Association Web site on Tuesday. The 32-year-old running back is scheduled to earn a base salary of $3.4 million this season and $4.35 million in 2010. Williams told The Miami Herald that he talked to Dolphins vice president of football operations Bill Parcells and they came to an agreement that was â&#x20AC;&#x153;quiet and easyâ&#x20AC;? without an agent. Williams, the 1998 Heisman Trophy winner and 2002 NFL rushing champion, has rejuvenated his career and become a solid running back alongside Ronnie Brown last season.

Errant Bulls lose to Gwinett, 10-2 Special to the Dispatch

Poor pitching and sloppy fielding doomed the Bulls as they met the wrong side of a 10-2 drubbing at the hands of the Gwinnett Braves Tuesday night at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. The Bulls committed a season-high tying five errors, including four in the seventh inning, allowing Gwinnett to plate four unearned runs. The Braves offense touched Durham's pitching staff for six earned runs off eight hits

and five walks. Starter Wade Davis (10-8) was rocked for six runs, five earned, with one walk and five strikeouts in four innings of work. Four of those runs came off an Alvin Colina two-out grandslam to left-center in the fourth. The Bulls were able to plate two runs off Jo-Jo Reyes (4-2) in their halves of the fourth and fifth with a sacrifice fly from Desmond Jennings and a RBI-groundout from Chris Richard to cut Gwinnett's lead to 6-2. Durham's bat-

ters ended the day with seven hits and five walks. Reyes picked up the win after tossing six innings in which he allowed two runs, one earned, on six hits and five walks with one strikeout. The seventh inning was when Durham's defense fell apart as the Braves were able to score four runs, three earned, on one hit and four errors, capping their 10-2 victory over the Bulls. The Bulls' loss to Gwinnett means they are no longer in sole possession

of 1st place in the International League South Division. They are now tied with the Braves for first in both the Division and Wild Card Race. Durham will hit the road Wednesday to begin a three-game series with Charlotte before returning home to close out the regular season with a threegame series verse Norfolk. Lefty Jason Cromer (6-3) will take the mound for the Bulls against righty Kelvin Jimenez (5-3) with first pitch scheduled for 7:15 p.m.

Sons of Panthers owner resign from organization By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The two sons of Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson resigned from high-ranking jobs in the organization Tuesday, an unexpected shake-up in one of the NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most stable and successful franchises. Team president Mark Richardson and Bank of America Stadium head Jon Richardson announced their decisions in a written statement. They were expected to eventually take over the team from their 73-yearold father, whose role has been limited since a February heart transplant. The two men didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give a reason for leaving and the resignations take effect immediately. Both will remain members of the ownership group, but left unclear is who will assume their management roles and run the franchise in the future. When asked if the franchise would be put up for sale, team spokesman Charlie Dayton said â&#x20AC;&#x153;absolutely not.â&#x20AC;? Mark Richardson had represented the team at owners meetings and was a member of the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s influential competition committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The commissioner appoints committee members and will replace Mark in due time,â&#x20AC;? NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said. Jerry Richardson told several members of the ownership group of the moves Tuesday morning. He later said in a statement that Mark and Jon â&#x20AC;&#x153;made great contributions to the stadium and the team that have enabled us to enjoy much success over the last 15 years. At the same time, I am thankful that we have a staff that has been in place for many years and knows our philosophy.â&#x20AC;? The three Richardsons

Carolina Panthers president Mark Richardson on the field before a game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday, Dec. 8, 2008 in Charlotte. Richardson and Bank of America Stadium head Jon Richardson, sons of team owner Jerry Ricardson, stepped down Tuesday, according to a team news release. declined further comment through a team spokesman. The NFL in 1993 awarded the expansion team to the Richardsons. Jon Richardson oversaw the construction of Charlotteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown stadium, which the family owns through revenue from permanent seat licenses. Mark Richardson became team president in 1998 after Mike McCormack retired. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One thing I can say is I have the utmost trust and confidence in Mr. Richardson to do whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for this team and organization,â&#x20AC;? coach John Fox said. The team said Jon Richardson, who has successfully battled cancer, had been planning to leave for a month. Mark Richardsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resignation was more surprising. He

had taken over much of the day-to-day control of the team since his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hospitalization last year. Jerry Richardson has been around the team little in the past 10 months. He attended one training camp practice last month and watched Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhibition game against Baltimore on Saturday from a luxury suite. The announcement stunned a tight-knit community where major figures in other sports mix. NASCAR team owner and Charlotte Bobcats minority investor Felix Sabates said he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;shocked.â&#x20AC;? He added that he saw Jerry and Mark Richardson together at a restaurant having a â&#x20AC;&#x153;father-son dinnerâ&#x20AC;? just a few weeks ago.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;A little family squabble, huh? I mean thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very obvious,â&#x20AC;? said Bruton Smith, the billionaire owner of Loweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Motor Speedway in suburban Charlotte. Mark Richardson was instrumental in costcutting measures this year, which included about 20 layoffs in the business and marketing departments. He said the moves were made because of a reduction in sponsorship revenue. The Panthers have sold out 52 consecutive games and have the advantage of owning their own stadium. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been a great opportunity to work with a franchise from the start and have a chance to see it mature,â&#x20AC;? Mark Richardson said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been a unique experience to see dreams become reality.â&#x20AC;? Fox told the players of the news as they left the practice field. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously both guys will be missed,â&#x20AC;? said receiver Muhsin Muhammad, who has spent 11 of his 14 NFL seasons with the Panthers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For whatever reason they resigned, no one knows exactly what that is. But we all have complete trust and faith in Mr. Richardsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to put good people in place.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x201D; AP Sports Writer Jenna Fryer contributed to this report.

NL Roundup

Hamels, Howard lead Phillies past Giants Phillies 1, Giants 0 PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Cole Hamels pitched a two-hitter, Ryan Howard drove in the only run with a fourth-inning double and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the San Francisco Giants 1-0 Tuesday night. Hamels (8-8) allowed a leadoff double to Ryan Garko in the second inning and a single to pinch-hitter Rich Aurilia to start the ninth. He struck out nine and walked one in his fourth career shutout and second this season. The left-hander extended his scoreless innings streak to

19, tying a career best, and won for the first time since July 28 against Arizona.

Reds 11, Pirates 5 CINCINNATI (AP) — Craig Tatum drove in four runs to double his previous career total and Justin Lehr overcame control problems as Cincinnati sent Pittsburgh to its sixth consecutive loss. The Pirates are four defeats shy of becoming the first major American professional team to string together 17 straight losing seasons. Cincinnati has won three straight and

eight of 10.

Cubs 4, Astros 1 CHICAGO (AP) — Randy Wells became the first Cubs rookie in 11 years to reach 10 wins with another strong outing against the Houston Astros, and Milton Bradley homered in Chicago’s 4-1 victory Tuesday night.

Hamilton had gone 23 games and 99 at-bats since his previous homer Aug. 7 until a 435-foot drive over the Rangers’ bullpen in right-center on the first pitch of the fourth. An inning later, Hamilton pulled a two-run shot down the right-field line. Chris Davis, who had a tiebreaking, two-run single to help the Rangers win

the opener by the same 5-2 score, added a solo homer in the nightcap.

COLTS FALL, from page 1B each other. Crossroads falls to 0-2 in their first season for varsity soccer at the school. “We’re young and we’re learning. I think it’s a step in the right direction,” said Overcash. “Anytime you play a team like that, you kind of get a feel for what you’re up against.” Overcash said he’s seen a lot of progression in his players since their first practices. Some of the guys have never played soccer before, he said. The young team has two seventh graders in the starting lineup. “We kind of threw them into the fire,” Overcash said. “They’re playing hard and they’ve gotten better. We’ve got to work on just the little things now, ballhandling and stuff like that, and that just comes from playing.” Crossroads will host Cape Fear Christian Thursday at 4 p.m. Contact the writer at

A 6-3 Eagle run to open it grew to 18-7, and they put it away easily. “One of the biggest things we struggle with this year is a lack of competitive spirit, and I’m trying to teach these girls to come out from the beginning and not let them come back at all. But they

just get a little bit out of focus sometimes, and we just make silly mistakes,” Via said. “Really, we’ve got a nice fast offense. We’ve got great servers. But when we start to lose that focus, things go crazy. And that’s when things slow down for us.” Crossroads jumped out early in the fifth set and didn’t look back. They led 6-1 before the Wayne Christian coach called a timeout. The Eagles scored some points, but couldn’t get a rally started. Britney Anderson’s second kill of the set scored the final point to win 15-8. Wilson came up big with a kill and an ace in the fifth set. She had seven bocks and 12 kills in the game. Morgan Davis had 12 kills and 22 assists. Peyton Sudheimer had 22 digs and 14 assists. Anderson had 20 digs and 17 service receptions.

and Zack King rounded out the top five Spartan runners. Daniel Lawton and Cameron Eatmon were the fourth and fifth Raider finishers, respectively. Kerr-Vance’s filled out the top five in the girls’ race. Addison Mabry finished first with a time of 31:14. Logan Teeter (31:15) was second, Brittney Lopez (32:08) took third, and Farrah Alkanan (39:49) was fourth. “All runners were exceptional,” said Northern

coach Capt. Dan Whittacre. “The cool breeze finally came after all runners finished in the remaining heat of the day.” Southern is now 2-0 in cross country meets this season. Their next meet is scheduled for Sept. 22, when they host conference foes J.F. Webb and Orange. Northern has a meet scheduled at Cardinal Gibbons on Sept. 22. KVA is scheduled to run at Caldwell Academy Thursday.

Fernando Gonzalez, No. 16 Marin Cilic, No. 17 Tomas Berdych, No. 22 Sam Querrey of Thousand Oaks, Calif., and Taylor Dent of Newport Beach, Calif. Dent, playing in the U.S. Open for the first time since 2005, eliminated Feliciano Lopez of Spain 4-6, 7-6 (6), 6-3, 7-5. Neither Safina nor Rogowska played particularly well. They combined for 24 double-faults, 113 unforced errors and 15 service breaks over 2 1/2 hours. “I put a lot of pressure on her serve,” Rogowska said, “and it seemed to crumble a bit.” Afterward, Safina found two things to be happy about: She didn’t break any rackets — something big brother Marat is known for — and she didn’t receive any warnings from the chair umpire. So, yes, the mental fragility she’s acknowledged is an issue

for her on court was a factor in her play, but at least Safina managed to keep it in check. Oh, and then there was this: “Tomorrow is another day,” she said. “So hopefully from today on, it’s going to get better.” Couldn’t get much worse. “It happens that you have a bad day and you want to ... say, ’I hate everything,”’ Safina said. “But at the end of the day, you win the match, even like this — I would say a little bit ugly. But you come in the hotel, and you are like, ’I made it.”’ Rogowska, too, tried to focus on the positive. A year ago, after all, she was back home in Melbourne, watching the U.S. Open on television. On Tuesday, she was playing in the tournament and nearly winning — against the woman who is ranked No. 1, no less.

OPEN, from page 1B tribute to New York’s skyline. The three-time Grand Slam title winner produced 29 winners — 23 more than Pironkova. And Sharapova’s game was particularly clean in the second set, when she hit 16 winners and only five unforced errors. Apart from four doublefaults, Sharapova showed no signs of the shoulder injury that forced her to have surgery in October and kept off the tour for nearly 10 months. “This is a Grand Slam. You’ve got to get going from the first match,” Sharapova said. “After being gone, this is what it’s all about.” Tell that to Ana Ivanovic. Or Dinara Safina. Earlier Tuesday, Safina came perilously close to becoming the first No. 1-seeded woman to lose in the U.S. Open’s first round. But she eked out a victory over an 18-year-old from Australia who is ranked

167th and needed a wildcard invitation to get into the tournament. The worst showing ever by a top-seeded woman in New York came last year, when Ivanovic exited in the second round. Now seeded 11th, Ivanovic did herself one worse this time, losing in the first round to 52ndranked Kateryna Bondarenko 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7). At least the 2008 French Open champion had a big support group in the stands, cheering for her wildly. Safina, in contrast, would look up at her coach for positive body language, and instead, he’d cover his eyes with his hands or turn his head with a wince. Nearly undone by 11 double-faults and 48 total unforced errors, Safina was a point away from a 4-0 deficit in the third set before coming back to beat Olivia Rogowska of Australia 6-7 (5), 6-2, 6-4.

Safina, younger sister of 2000 U.S. Open champion Marat Safin, is used to faring well in the early stages of Grand Slam tournaments. Usually, it’s later on that problems arise: She is 0-3 in major finals, all lopsided losses, and she managed to win only one game against Venus Williams in the Wimbledon semifinals in July. “I was surprised that, you know, she was giving me free points,” said Rogowska, who never has defeated anyone ranked better than 47th. As Rogowska spoke, her eyes were red, and she fiddled with a well-worn tissue. “I’m disappointed I lost,” she said, “and I didn’t expect to say that after playing the No. 1 player in the world. It’s a bit weird.” Ivanovic was not the only seeded player who was upset: 276th-ranked Jesse

Witten of Naples, Fla., knocked off No. 29-seeded Igor Andreev of Russia 6-4, 6-0, 6-2; Nicolas Lapentti beat No. 19 Stanislas Wawrinka 4-6, 3-6, 7-6 (6), 7-6 (3), 6-3; and Ivan Navarro beat No. 27 Ivo Karlovic 6-4, 7-6 (8), 7-6 (5). Yanina Wickmayer of Belgium defeated No. 16 Virginie Razzano of France 6-4, 6-3; and Shahar Peer of Israel eliminated No. 32 Agnes Szavay of Hungary 6-2, 6-2. Otherwise, winners included 2004 U.S. Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova, past runners-up Elena Dementieva and Jelena Jankovic, No. 9 Caroline Wozniacki and No. 13 Nadia Petrova. Men’s winners included 2008 Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic and that tournament’s runner-up, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, along with No. 10 Fernando Verdasco, No. 11

Panthers acquire defensive tackle Leonard from Browns By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTE — The Carolina Panthers addressed their biggest need Tuesday by acquiring defensive tackle Louis Leonard from the Cleveland Browns for a 2010 late-round draft pick. The Panthers were left with a hole on the defensive line after starter Maake Kemoeatu, Carolina’s top run-stuffer, ruptured his Achilles’ tendon less than 30 minutes

into the first practice of training camp. While Carolina may still look to get more help at the position, the 6-foot-4, 325-pound Leonard could contend for Leonard the starting job. Leonard played all 16 games for the Browns last season, including four starts, and had 31 tackles.

“Getting him in here right now, we’ll get a little over 10 days to work with him and at least put him in the rotation,” Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said. “We’ll see how it all works out. We think he’s got ability and we think he’s a good player. He’s 25 years old, he’s young and he’s continuing to improve. We certainly feel like he can be in the mix.” In turn the Browns get a late pick for a player who was no lock to make

the regular-season roster. Leonard recently got into an argument with defensive line coach Bryan Cox during practice and was forced to run laps. He also may have been an odd fit in the Browns’ 3-4 defense. In Carolina, he’ll likely quickly move to the front of a thin group. Nick Hayden, who has played in two NFL games, and undrafted rookie Marlon Favorite have been alternating as starters. The Panthers struggled defending the run in two

of three preseason games. The Panthers made room on the roster by waiving undrafted rookie defensive tackle Lonnie Harvey. Carolina then placed reserve safety Nate Salley on injured reserve to get to the 75-player limit. Salley had been unable to practice for weeks because of a knee injury. Leonard was signed by San Diego in 2007 after going undrafted out of Fresno State. He was later waived by the Chargers

and St. Louis before signing with the Browns during the middle of the 2007 season. Leonard practiced with Carolina Tuesday could see some time in Thursday’s preseason finale against Pittsburgh. But Hurney wouldn’t rule out making more moves to help with depth at defensive tackle. “We’re going to continue looking everywhere,” Hurney said. “We’ll remain flexible like we always try to do.”

Rams trade former No. 1 pick to Atlanta ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Rams cut ties to their top two picks from the 2006 draft on Tuesday, trading cornerback Tye Hill to the Atlanta Falcons for an undisclosed draft pick and releasing tight end Joe Klopfenstein. Hill missed 20 games the past two seasons, including the last 12 game of 2008 with a knee injury. “We wish Tye all the best,” coach Steve Spagnuolo said. “It’s not an easy part of the business. We do wish him well. We

After 13 years and three titles, Bruschi retires By HOWARD ULMAN AP Sports Writer

BOSTON — Tedy Bruschi began the first day of his post-football life by taking out the trash. “I’m real life,” he said, “I’m just regular.” Hardly. Bruschi is that unique player who won three Super Bowls, spent a long career with just one team and got Bill Belichick to drop his stoic persona on Monday and, in a voice shaking with emotion, call Bruschi “a perfect player.” And one more thing: “The thought of playing professional football after experiencing a stroke. I mean, is that a statement you hear everyday?” Bruschi said. “It’s not.” After all that, and more, the inside linebacker and father of three whose sons stayed home Monday because they “would rather play with their Transformers than come and sit in the front row” next to his wife, announced his retirement after 13 seasons with the New England Patriots. Smiling and never expressing regrets or shedding a tear, the longtime leader of the Patriots defense had a simple explanation for retiring now. Bruschi, who had missed much of training camp and one exhibition game with an undisclosed injury, said he was simply too old and found his “body doesn’t heal as quickly.” He also had accomplished all his goals except “winning a fourth championship,” he said. “Knowing I have three previous ones, I think I’ll let that one go. “I feel great about myself right now.” Just 4 1/2 years ago, Bruschi walked unsteadily out of Massachusetts General Hospital with his wife Heidi. He had been admitted two days earlier, on Feb. 16, 2005, three days after playing in his only Pro Bowl and 10 days after his final championship. He had felt numbness in his left arm and left leg and had blurry vision. The

diagnosis: a mild stroke. Bruschi had surgery for a hole in his heart, but made it back for the seventh game of the season. “I was retired,” he said. “I didn’t think it was possible.” In that game, he had 10 tackles against the Buffalo Bills. He led the team in tackles for the first time in 2006 despite surgery for a broken wrist a month before the season. He was the Patriots’ leading tackler again in 2007. His performance declined last year, and rookie Jerod Mayo, the Defensive Player of the Year, emerged as his successor as the leader in the middle of the defense. “He kind of took me under his wing when I first came here,” Mayo said. “He told me then that one day he would pass the torch on to me and the rest of the team and I guess today’s that day.” Bruschi’s retirement leaves running back Kevin Faulk, who joined the team in 1999, as the longesttenured Patriot. “When you talk about Tedy, you talk about leadership, inspiration,” Faulk said. Bruschi was a thirdround draft choice from Arizona in 1996 who tied the Division I-A career sack record. The Patriots switched him from defensive end, where he would have been undersized in the NFL, to linebacker and he had to learn to cover receivers. “We (didn’t) really know what to do with him,” said Belichick, who also joined the Patriots in 1996 as assistant head coach to Bill Parcells. “All along the way he heard, ’too small,’ ’too slow,’ ’ too this,’ ’too that,’ and just kept getting better and better and working harder and outworking and out-competing pretty much everybody that he faced.” Editor’s Note: This article originally ran on page 1B of Tuesday’s edition, but the accompanying jump was inadvertently left out.

feel like we did what is in the best interest of the team.” Hill started 10 games as a rookie and had three interceptions and a fumble recovery. He’d been working behind Jonathan Wade, a third-round pick in 2007, during the preaseason. “News like that always shocks you,” Wade said. “Because that happened, it doesn’t necessarily change anything. It could very easily have been me. When things like this hap-

Good Taste



hef Tim Love, the nation’s foremost authority on urban western cooking, has gained a reputation as a “Master of Meats” and a grilling guru. “When I want to create something out of the ordinary or prepare a simple meal for my family,” he says, “I choose American lamb on the grill. With its sweet and rich flavor, it provides versatility and an unsurpassed taste that makes any recipe special.” Grilling is an ideal low-fat cooking method for lean meats such as lamb. It’s rich in protein, iron, B vitamins and zinc, and on average has less than 175 calories per three-ounce portion. Fire up the grill with these recipes from Chef Love. From chops to burgers to kabobs, any cut of American lamb is the secret weapon for great grilling! For more grilling recipes and information about American lamb, visit

American Lamb Grilling Guide � � �

Brighten up the barbeque with the magic of marinades Simple marinades add flavor and tenderize meats. Let lamb marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight in a plastic food storage bag. Grill over medium heat until desired doneness.

Mint Raspberry

Combine 1/3 cup olive oil, 2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint and 1 garlic clove, minced.

Lamb Sirloin With Stockyards-Style Garlic Mint Vinaigrette

Serves 4 Marinade 1/2 cup chopped garlic 2 cups olive oil 2 cups mint (fresh) 1 lime zest and juice Steaks 4 lamb sirloin steaks In medium mixing bowl, blend garlic, olive oil, mint, and lime zest and juice. Add lamb sirloin steaks to marinade in a glass baking pan for at least 2 hours, covered (ideally overnight). Preheat grill. Meanwhile, remove lamb from marinade. Lightly score sirloins, approximately 4 cuts per side. Place on grill over low heat. Cook for approximately 4 minutes per side. Garlic Mint Vinaigrette 1 cup garlic cloves 1 cup olive oil 2 cups mint leaves 1/4 cup chopped fresh thyme 1 tablespoon stone ground mustard 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar 4 limes, zest and juice 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper Slowly roast garlic in olive oil over medium heat in a heavy bottomed sauce pan until just golden. Let oil cool with garlic in it. Combine all ingredients, except mint, in blender and mix until chunky. Add mint and blend for approximately 2 to 3 seconds to incorporate. Drizzle grilled lamb sirloin steaks with vinaigrette to taste.

Soy Ginger

Combine 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup honey, 1 teaspoon grated ginger and 1 garlic clove, minced.

Marinate leg, chops or kabobs covered, in refrigerator from 2 to 24 hours. Grill lamb about 4 inches above medium coals; turn occasionally. How long should you grill lamb? Butterflied Leg (4 to 7 pounds) 40 to 50 minutes Loin Chops (1 inch thick) 9 to 10 minutes Cubes for Kabobs (1-inch pieces) 7 to 12 minutes Lamb Patties (1/2 inch thick) 5 to 12 minutes As a general rule, it’s best to keep the grill lid off for cuts that cook quickly, such as chops, so you can monitor doneness. For thicker cuts such as leg, cover the grill when the meat is not directly over the coals. Allow lamb to rest before serving so juices can settle — 5 minutes for chops; 10 to 15 minutes for larger, thicker cuts. As lamb rests, internal temperatures rise 5° to 10°F. Serve chops and kabobs at an internal temperature of 145°F (medium rare) and burgers at 160°F (medium). For most accurate results, use a thermometer to check temperature.

Lamb Sirloin With Stockyards-Style Garlic Mint Vinaigrette

Yogurt Curry

Grilled Loin Chops With Tomatillo Chutney

Servings: 4 Chutney 1 tablespoon olive oil 12 tomatillos, husks removed and quartered 1 medium white onion, finely diced 1 serrano chile, minced 1 tablespoon roasted garlic, chopped 1 tablespoon sugar 1/4 cup chopped cilantro Chops 8 6-ounce lamb loin chops 1/4 cup olive oil Coarse salt and cracked pepper to taste Bring lamb chops to room temperature. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil on medium high heat in heavy skillet. When oil begins to smoke, add tomatillos, onion, chile and garlic. Sauté, stirring frequently, until vegetables are soft. Add sugar and cilantro and continue to cook until sugar is dissolved. Season with salt and pepper. Heat grill to medium heat. Brush chops with 1/4 cup olive oil and season liberally with salt and pepper. Grill chops for approximately 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remove chops from grill and let sit for 5 minutes. Serve lamb chops with warm chutney on top.

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

(Answers tomorrow) BRIAR LAYOFF GASKET Jumbles: RABBI Answer: Fears can lead to this — SAFER


Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be knocked out of your routine. The changes have your internal compass whirling, unsure of which way is north. That’s what makes this a perfect time to institute a new rule or begin a fresh habit. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re not trying to please others by being overly cheerful. That’s just the way you feel. It’s easy for you to look on the bright side now, and your sunny disposition is a gift to everyone around you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ve set your sights on a goal that is not as easy to reach as you thought it would be. Any adversity that comes up will strengthen you and give you the stamina to journey on. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You simply cannot stand by and watch people sleepwalk through life. You stir up a commotion. The racket you make will startle others awake. Some will be grateful to you once they’ve stabilized. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There is no need to grapple with the odds. Statistics can never prove what will happen in any particular case. Believe in yourself and your dreams enough to know with certainty that you will succeed. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Slippery slopes are not reserved for negativity. Positive momentum can also happen in a manner that feels much like barely controlled falling. One kind move begins an avalanche.









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



LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Keep trying to tackle a persistent problem. You’ll be near the one who holds the key. Choose your moments carefully, and use them well. The perfect question will finally penetrate the heart of the matter. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Any time spent in passing judgment will only drain your energy. Seek to experience life first-hand, and avoid forming opinions about anything you haven’t personally been involved with. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Diplomacy has its time and place, but you’re back to calling things how you see them — no frills, no filter. This makes life simple for now. And if you hurt feelings along the way, they will mend quickly. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Are you in a position that allows you to socialize the day away? If not, whatever time you can spare for keeping up with personal phone calls, e-mails and letters will be well spent. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s challenging to fit a new relationship into your life. You have to like a person quite a lot in order to facilitate a deeper connection. Scheduling and proximity will be the main issues to figure out. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It doesn’t make sense anymore to pursue a certain endeavor, at least not in the manner you’ve been approaching it. Everything is cyclical. Drop this course of action and a new idea will be born.
