FALL CITY, Wash. — Ben Alexander spent nearly every waking minute playing the video game “World of Warcraft.” As a result, he flunked out of the University of Iowa. Alexander, 19, needed help to break an addiction he calls as destructive as alcohol or drugs. He found it in this suburb of high-tech Seattle, where what claims to be the first residential treatment center for Internet addiction in the United States just opened its doors. The center, called ReSTART, is somewhat ironically located near Redmond, headquarters of Microsoft and a world center of the computer industry. It opened in July and for $14,000 offers a 45-day program intended to help people wean themselves from pathological computer use, which can include obsessive use of video games, texting, Facebook, eBay, Twitter and any other timekillers brought courtesy of technology. “We’ve been doing this for years on an outpatient basis,” said Hilarie Cash, a therapist and executive director of the center. “Up until now, we had no place to send them.” Internet addiction is not recognized as a separate disorder by the American Psychiatric Association, and treatment is not generally covered by insurance. But there are many such treatment centers in China, South Korea and Taiwan — where Internet addiction is taken very seriously — and many psychiatric experts say it is clear that Internet addiction is real and harmful. The five-acre center in Fall City, about 30 miles east of Seattle, can handle up to six patients at a time. Alexander is the first patient of the program, which

“Among psychiatrists there is general recognition that many patients have difficulty controlling their impulses to chat online, or play computer games or watch porn,” Block said. “The debate is how to classify that.” Cash, co-author of the book “Video Games & Your Kids,” first started dealing with Internet addiction in 1994, with a patient who was so consumed by video games that he had lost his marriage and two jobs. Internet addicts miss out on real conversations and real human development, often see their hygiene, their home and relationships deteriorate, don’t eat or sleep properly and don’t get enough exercise, Rae said. Alexander is a tall, quiet young man who always got good grades and hopes to become a biologist. He started playing “World of Warcraft,” a hugely popular online multiplayer role playing game, about a year ago, and got sucked right in. “At first it was a couple of hours a day,” he said. “By midway through the first semester, I was playing 16 or 17 hours a day. “School wasn’t interesting,” he said. “It was an easy way to socialize and meet people.” It was also an easy way to flunk out. Alexander dropped out in the second semester and went to a traditional substance abuse program, which was not a good fit. He graduated from a 10-week outdoors-based program in southern Utah, but felt he still had little control over his gaming. So he sought out a specialized program and arrived in Fall City in July. He thinks it was a good choice. “I don’t think I’ll go back to ‘World of Warcraft’ anytime soon,” Alexander said.

ReSTART Internet Addiction Recovery Program co-founder Cosette Dawna Rae helps client Ben Alexander of Iowa City, Iowa, cook bacon for a dinner of hamburgers at the program’s facilities in Fall City, Wash. Cooking meals is among the activities that help patients recover. uses a cold turkey approach. He spends his days in counseling and psychotherapy, doing household chores, working on the grounds, going on outings, exercising and baking a mean batch of ginger cookies. Whether such programs work in the long run remains to be seen. For one thing, the Internet is so pervasive that it can be nearly impossible to resist, akin to placing an alcoholic in a bar, Cash said. The effects of addiction are no joke. They range from loss of a job or marriage to car accidents for those who can’t stop texting while driving. Some people have died after playing video games for days without a break, generally stemming from a blood clot associated with being sedentary. Psychotherapist Cosette Dawna Rae has owned the bucolic retreat center since 1994, and was searching for a new use for it when she hooked up with Cash. They

decided to avoid treating people addicted to Internet sex, in part because she lives in the center with her family. According to Dr. Kimberly Young of the Center for Internet Addiction Recovery in Bradford, Pa., addiction warning signs are being preoccupied with thoughts of the Internet; using it longer than intended, and for increasing amounts of time; repeatedly making unsuccessful efforts to control use; jeopardizing relationships, school or work to spend time online; lying to cover the extent of Internet use; using the Internet to escape problems or feelings of depression; physical changes to weight, headaches or carpal tunnel syndrome. Exactly how to respond is being debated. For instance, Internet addiction can be a symptom of other mental illness, such as depression, or conditions like autism, experts say. “From what we know,

many so-called ‘Internet addicts’ are folks who have severe depression, anxiety disorders, or social phobic symptoms that make it hard for them to live a full, balanced life and deal faceto-face with other people,” said Dr. Ronald Pies, professor of psychiatry at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, N.Y. “It may be that unless we treat their underlying problems, some new form of ‘addiction’ will pop up down the line,” Pies said. There is debate about whether to include Internet addiction as a separate illness in the next edition of the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders,” due in 2012, which determines which mental illnesses get covered by insurance. Pies and Dr. Jerald Block, of Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, said there is not enough research yet to justify that.

‘Sturgeon moon,’ midnight

From STAFF REPORTS

Duke University Medical Center has upgraded a 23-yearold Oxford woman’s condition from serious to fair after she was injured late last week in a one-vehicle wreck on N.C. 50 on the Granville County side of the Granville County-Wake County line. Erin Gore, who was not wearing a seatbelt, suffered a blackout Friday while driving a 2006 Chevrolet Equinox north on the hilly, two-lane highway between Old N.C. 21 and Beaver Dam Road, the N.C. Highway Patrol has said. The vehicle went to the left of center and off the pavement, Gore came to, overcorrected, the vehicle overturned and Gore was ejected, the patrol has said. Gore ended up in the roadway and the vehicle went to the right and came to rest upright in a ditch, the patrol has said. The patrol cited Gore, of 604 E. Spring St., for careless and reckless driving and for failing to wear a seatbelt. A hospital patient in fair condition is one whose vital signs are stable and within normal limits.

The moon was all but full as it peeked through breaks in the cloud cover — and tinted those clouds in several hues — in the wee hours of Friday morning. Friday night’s moon was full, but contrary to most Septembers was not the “harvest moon,” which is the full moon that occurs nearest the autumnal equinox on Sept. 22, the first day of autumn. About every four years, including this year, the harvest moon falls in October. This full moon, the one prior to the harvest moon, is known in various locales and cultures as the “corn moon,” “barley moon,” “fruit moon” or, among fishing Indian tribes, the “sturgeon moon.”

Health care reform topic in polite town hall meeting By DAVID IRVINE Daily Dispatch Writer

WARRENTON — State Senator Doug Berger presided over a lively but polite town hall meeting on health care reform Thursday evening. More than 60 people filled a Warren County Court Room for the event. There were disagreements but no shouting, as the pros and cons were discussed. N.C. Representative Michael Wray added his welcome to the group but said he was there to listen. “This is Sen. Berger’s meeting.” Berger set the tone of the meeting, asking the participants to keep an open mind and “listen to each other.” “For some people,” Berger said, “the issue is: Should government be involved in health care?” He compared the current charges of government involvement as socialism to the charges that President Franklin Roosevelt faced in passing legislation to fight the Great Depression. He pointed out that the government already has three health care programs: Medicare, for senior citizens

and people with disabilities; Medicaid, for people with incomes below $8,000; and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, familiarly known as CHIP. Berger said that North Carolinians should be interested in federal health care plans because much of the state budget is devoted to health care. “That’s why we have to get in the game.” Berger introduced three experts he had invited to the meeting. Chris Collins, Deputy Director of the N.C. Office of Rural Health and Community Care, described work with local leaders to strengthen health care in communities. She said the office has developed 14 networks of health care providers to work in rural communities to coordinate services. One result has been to reduce the number of asthma cases admitted to hospitals by 36 percent. Anne Braswell, senior analyst in the same office, said that the HealthNet program was originally funded by the federal government to provide access Please see HEALTH CARE, page 4A

The leader of the HendersonVance Black Caucus denies claims that City Council candidates Sara Coffey and Cathy Ringley were “ejected” from a recent meeting at which Ringley wanted to know how the organization could have chosen to support a list of municipal candidates without hearing from her. The Black Caucus leader, Vance County Commissioner Terry Garrison, additionally denies Coffey’s claims of being “arrogant” in manner in saying the meeting was closed to the public Garrison and denies Coffey’s claims of “discrimination” because Coffey and Ringley are white women. Garrison said both black and white candidates were endorsed. “I mean, we are advocates for desegregation and affirmative action” and any action of bias on the organization’s part would be something the members would “absolutely deplore and object to,” Garrison added. The dispute stems from the Black Caucus having had an election planning and action matters meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Elks Lodge at 326 Rockspring St. northeast of the central business district. An advance announcement in the “Mark It Down” section of the Dispatch said, “Members are encouraged to attend.” Ringley told the Dispatch that she misread the announcement as saying the meeting would start at 7 p.m. and that she and Coffey, both of whom are neighbors, arrived at 7:10 p.m. and that they were invited to sit down. Coffey is again opposing Ward 1 At-Large Councilman Bernard Alston, while Ringley, who serves on the Zoning Board of Adjustment, is opposing Ward 1 Councilwoman Mary Emma Evans. Alston and Evans are black. The citywide election for mayor and all eight council members is Oct. 6. Please see CAUCUS, page 3A

MPMC to institute standardized patient wristband color codes Due to a nearly fatal event in a Pennsylvania hospital, Maria Parham Medical Center is converting to a recently standardized wristband code for alerting medical staff about certain patient conditions. When patients are admitted to the hospital, they may be asked to wear a wristband with a designated color to indicate a medical condition that nurses need to be aware of — red for allergies, yellow for high fall risk, and purple for patients with a “Do Not Resuscitate” (DNR) order, which indicates that the patient does not want life-saving measures taken in the case of cardiac or respiratory arrest. The medical center is one of many hospitals across the nation which will adopt the new standardized wristbands ef-

improvement. With the revision of wristband colors implemented in hospitals, patients should be provided with more appropriate care. Cindy Faulkner, vice president of Patient Care Services for Maria Parham Medical Center, is supportive of the change. “The incident in Pennsylvania was unfortunate, but it served as a valuable learning tool for hospitals across the nation. Standardization in wristband color is necessary to take the very best care of patients. That is certainly the goal of any hospital, especially Maria Parham.”

fective in mid-September. Before the standardization of wristband colors by the American Hospital Association, hospitals used different colors for different medical concerns. In the incident that happened in Pennsylvania, a nurse working in two different hospitals became confused when labeling a patient with a wristband. In a nearby hospital, yellow indicated “restricted extremity.” In the hospital where the event occurred, yellow meant “do not resusciatate.” The patient was not harmed from the simple mistake, but it highlighted an area of patient safety that needed

and Coffey because they are white women, said, “That’s a possibility.� Ringley said that the Black Caucus has recommended white candidates in the past, but she said that she was told never when there was a choice of a black candidate. “I think that they do a grave disservice to the black voters that they represent in that black voters have no idea that’s it a black endorsement rather than a black position statement,� Ringley said. And Ringley said she does not know whether the Black Caucus thinks that only black persons can represent black persons. And Ringley emphasized to the Dispatch that she and Coffey are not running as a team. “We’re only neighbors and we have very individual views,� Ringley said. Garrison told the Dispatch that, with all due respect to Ringley and others, “I don’t think that

she is really in a position to speak on behalf of black citizens, members.� “I would say that politics is not an exact science. There are always going to be winners and there are always going to be losers,� Garrison said. And Garrison said, “It is indeed one of the goals of the organization to try to promote and encourage blacks to seek office, persons who are qualified. And so persons that we think are qualified to hold office, we do support them and endorse them generally, as a whole.� And Garrison said if black candidates endorsed by the Black Caucus happen to have white opposition, then “it just has happened that way.� “But,� Garrison added, “it does not mean by any stretch of the imagination that that’s always going to be the case.� Contact the writer at bwest@ hendersondispatch.com.

Candidates endorsed, but Caucus not telling yet The Henderson-Vance Black Caucus has endorsed candidates in advance of the Oct. 6 municipal election, but the question is whether the public will know who is on the list. “I am not at liberty to disclose that at this point,� the Black Caucus leader, Vance County Commissioner Terry Garrison, said when asked by the Dispatch late last week. Garrison, when asked, said the organization at a

Tuesday evening meeting chose a list of preferred candidates. Garrison, noting there will be another Black Caucus meeting the middle of this month, said he would make known who is being backed by the organization if the membership authorizes him to do so. “We have our strategy as far as to how we support our candidates,� Garrison added. Garrison said the Black Caucus, which he said is about “30 or so strong� in terms of members who attend meetings, has used

various methods in providing support to candidates over the years. According to Garrison, there seemed to have been a sentiment among the members that time was a factor in this year’s election and that there were enough members who felt as though they were sufficiently knowledgeable about the candidates and felt they could decide who they would like to endorse. “And that’s pretty much the way that that went,� Garrison said. “Now, I will tell you that there was a split vote,�

Coffey afterward posted a narrative of her version of events, with comments, on the Internet Web site Home in Henderson, saying she and Ringley were “ejected� from the meeting. Coffey told the Dispatch that the announcement in the newspaper about the meeting never said anything about the public not being invited.

Fire no longer threatening to L.A.-area communities LOS ANGELES (AP) — The western flank of the deadly wildfire north of Los Angeles was under control Saturday, sparing foothill communities further threat as it burned east into a large wilderness area. Investigators, meanwhile, were trying to determine who ignited the blaze that killed two firefighters, destroyed at least 76 homes and burned nearly 242 square miles of the Angeles National Forest. The fire’s origin near Angeles Crest Highway remained cordoned off as authorities sought more clues in the case, but they were hesitant to release any findings to the media. Los Angeles County firefighters Tedmund Hall and Arnaldo Quinones were killed Aug. 30 while seeking an escape route for their inmate fire crew after flames overran their camp on Mount Gleason. Sheriff’s detectives opened a homicide investigation after the fire was ruled arson earlier this week, and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has offered $100,000 for informa-

tion leading to the arrest and conviction of the culprit. The fire, one of the largest in Southern California history, was 49 percent contained by early Saturday afternoon after crews built protective lines on the northwestern flank near Santa Clarita, according to Forest Service spokeswoman Jan Ulrich. Firefighters were trying to slow the fire’s eastern movement into the San Gabriel Wilderness and secure the southeastern flank north of Monrovia and other foothill communities. No homes were threatened, Ulrich said. The weekend weather forecast called for cooler temperatures and slightly higher humidity that could help firefighters further surround the blaze. Mount Wilson — which holds a historic observatory and at least 20 television transmission towers, radio and cell phone antennas — appeared well-protected after flames came dangerously close earlier this week. Crews were orderedd to

HEALTH CARE, from page one to health care for people without health insurance. In 2005, when federal funds disappeared, the state legislature picked it up. The program now serves more than 50,000 people in 38 counties. Adam Linker, of the N.C. Justice Center’s Health Access Coalition, said having a public option for health insurance would provide savings in health care costs by bringing more people into the system. It would “spread out the cost, spread out the risk,” he said. “If we can keep them in the system, insurance companies have more incentive to invest more in prevention,” reducing later costs for serious illnesses. Along with the public option will be a health insurance exchange, a clearing house where many insurance providers offer options that a person can choose from. The public option would be just one of many options, he pointed out. In response to a question about end-of-life counseling, Linker pointed out that it already exists in the form of living wills and “do not resuscitate” instructions. Current proposals would simply allow doctors to be paid for helping patients understand their options. Berger invited questions and comments from the audience. File cards were

Granville hospital first in N.C. to implant orthopaedic device OXFORD — Granville Health System announced that orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Ralph Liebelt recently performed the first procedure in the state to treat leg pain and numbness caused by lumbar spinal stenosis using the Superion™ Interspinous Spacer (ISS) from Vertiflex Inc. The procedure was performed at Granville Medical Center. Liebelt’s surgery is part of a clinical study that evaluates the safety and effectiveness of the Superion ISS for the treatment of leg pain caused by moderate lumbar spinal stenosis. Liebelt Spinal stenosis, the degenerative narrowing of the spaces in the spine that can lead to spinal cord and/or nerve root compression, is believed to be the cause of leg and back pain for nearly 1.2 million Americans. The study compares the Superion ISS to the X-Stop® device, a similar product which is currently available in the United

States. Patients who meet the program’s criteria and agree to participate in the study will be randomly chosen to receive either the X-Stop or the Superion device and will be evaluated at specific follow-up visits for 24 months after the surgery. A possible alternative to traditional spinal surgery, the device can potentially act as a support column to open the passageways through which the nerve roots travel from the lumbar spine to the legs. Chronic pain in the lower back region along with the radiating leg pain that often accompanies it is typically treated with physical therapy and other noninvasive therapies. When such treatments no longer provide relief, patients may be offered a surgical procedure. The intent of the Superion ISS is to provide patients with a minimally invasive surgical technique performed through a single, half-inch incision that is designed to stabilize the affected level or levels while allowing the patient to move without significant restriction.

Surgical sites throughout the United States will be implanting the Superion ISS as part of this clinical study. Liebelt is part of a select group of prominent spine surgeons who have been chosen to participate in the study. GHS was chosen as the site for this study because of the hospital’s past success in working with Liebelt and the experienced staff available at Granville Medical Center. GHS was recently awarded the 2009 fivestar rating of excellence for quality outcomes in total hip replacement from HealthGrades, the nation’s leading independent health care ratings organization. The outstanding score sets GHS as the top provider for this orthopaedic service in the Triangle area, including Oxford, Henderson, Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Cary and Smithfield. Liebelt is affiliated with Triangle Orthopaedic Associates’ offices in Oxford and Durham. For more information on this study, call Lynn V. Kamm, Clinical Research Coordinator, at (919) 281-1784.

Garrido’s mental state Teen: Brother innocent in mobile home slayings likely to be trial issue By RUSS BYNUM Associated Press Writer

By LISA LEFF Associated Press Writer

SAN FRANCISCO — In the days before his arrest, cracks showed in the elaborate facade authorities say Phillip Garrido built to conceal the girl he kidnapped, raped and imprisoned — and those cracks were of Garrido’s own making. The registered sex offender and parolee handdelivered to the FBI’s San Francisco office on Aug. 24 a screed declaring that the voices he heard came from God. The Garrido next day, he took the two daughters he had with his alleged kidnap victim to the University of California, Berkeley, where he blurted out to already suspicious campus police officers that he was a convicted rapist. Most curiously, he showed up at his parole agent’s office the day he wound up in custody with his manufactured family in tow — the two daughters, his wife and a 29-year-old woman who would be revealed as Jaycee Dugard, the girl Garrido admitted abducting in 1991 from a South Lake Tahoe

bus stop. Whether rooted in bravado, mental illness or both, his actions in the years, days and hours before his secret life was exposed raise questions about whether he subconsciously wanted to be caught. And experts say his behavior is likely to become relevant as prosecutors prepare to try Garrido and law enforcements agencies explore possible connections to unsolved sex crimes. Ken Lanning, a consultant and former FBI agent who specializes in crimes against children, said Garrido’s lack of discretion and increasing outspokenness are not unusual among sex offenders. Some try to justify their deeds by arguing that their victims cared for them or somehow benefited from the abuse, he said. His state of mind during the abduction, the years since and his recent dealings with law enforcement will no doubt be debated as the case against him and his wife makes it way through the legal system, said Michael McGrath, a forensic psychiatrist in Rochester, N.Y. At some point, experts will probably be asked to evaluate Garrido to determine if he is psychotic or suffers from another psychiatric condition.

Henderson Shrine Club Racers Unit Monday, September 7th Dinner 4 pm - 7 pm

TOWNSEND, Ga. — Relatives of a Georgia man charged with slaying his father and seven others in a mobile home insisted Saturday that he would never harm his family, with the suspect’s brother speculating a dispute over drugs could have prompted the killings. Family members spoke to reporters outside a mass graveside funeral for the seven of the victims slain a week earlier inside the mobile home they shared near the Georgia coast. Their grief was mixed with shock after police charged 22-year-old Guy Heinze Jr. on Friday with eight counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of his kin, including the suspect’s father, uncle, aunt and four cousins. The

eighth victim was a boyfriend of one of the cousins, and his funeral arrangements are pending. “I know my brother didn’t do this. My brother has a conscience,” 16-year-old Tyler Heinze told reporters outside the rural cemetery where seven caskets topped with roses rested atop freshly dug graves. “I can say there was drug involvement in the house and I think somebody ripped somebody off and somebody needed to get their money back,” Tyler Heinze said. “Maybe somebody in the house double-crossed someone. It could’ve been my brother who double-crossed somebody, and it could be part of his fault that somebody came in there and did this.” The teen said he had once lived at the mobile home but now stays with his stepfather.

Police have refused to say how the victims died or what evidence they have against Heinze Jr., who reported the gruesome scene to authorities Aug. 29 in a chilling 911 call, frantically telling a dispatcher “My whole family’s dead!” He said they appeared to have been beaten to death when he found them. Heinze had been jailed soon after the slayings on charges of illegal possession of prescription drugs and marijuana, as well as lying to police and evidence tampering by hiding a shotgun from the home and hiding it in the trunk of his car. He told police he thought the gun was stolen. Dozens gathered Saturday for the funeral. The copper-colored casket of the family patriarch, 44-year-old Rusty Toler Sr., sat beneath a green tent with the coffins of his two sons —

Russell Jr., 20, and Michael, 19 — on either side. In front of them were two white caskets containing Toler’s daughters, 22-year-old Chrissy and 15-year-old Michelle. Beside the Toler men sat the caskets of Toler Sr.’s sister Brenda Gail Falagan, 49. Draped in an American flag, a nod to his prior Army service, was Guy Heinze Sr. One victim, identified by police as Chrissy Toler’s 3-year-old son, Byron Jimerson Jr., survived with critical injuries and remained hospitalized in Savannah. Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering said two new pieces of information led authorities to charge Heinze late Friday. He would not say what that information was or how the victims died. The chief also declined to say whether police believe Heinze acted alone.

U.K. official says oil was part of Lockerbie talks By JILL LAWLESS Associated Press Writer

LONDON — Trade and oil considerations played a major role in the decision to include the Lockerbie bomber in a prisoner transfer agreement between Britain and Libya, a senior British official said in an interview published Saturday. Justice Secretary Jack Straw said trade, particularly a deal for oil company BP PLC, was “a very big part” of the 2007 negotiations that led to the prisoner deal. The agreement was part of a wider warming of relations between London and Tripoli. “Libya was a rogue state,” Straw was quoted as saying by The Daily Telegraph newspaper. “We wanted to bring it back into the fold and trade is an essential part of it — and subsequently there was the BP deal.” The British government has faced intense criticism over the release of Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, a Libyan convicted in the 1988 bombing of a Pan Am airliner over Lockerbie, Scotland. The attack killed 259 people

aboard the plane, most of them American, and 11 on the ground. Last month Scottish officials freed al-Megrahi, 57, on compassionate grounds because he is dying of prostate cancer. Although he was not released under the prisoner transfer agreement, opposition politicians, and many victims’ families, claim business considerations influenced the decision to free him. On Wednesday, Prime Minister Gordon Brown insisted there was “no conspiracy, no cover up, no double dealing, no deal on oil” over the bomber’s release. But officials admit the prisoner transfer agreement was part of a wider set of negotiations aimed at bringing Libya in from the international cold, and improving British trade prospects with the oil-rich nation. David Lidington, foreign affairs spokesman for the main opposition Conservatives, said it was “very hard to square what Jack Straw says today with Gordon Brown’s repeated denials of

any kind of deal.” “That’s why we need an independent inquiry to get to the truth.” Documents released by the government show Straw had originally tried to ensure that al-Megrahi was exempted from any prisoner deal with Libya, but in December 2007 he changed his mind. He wrote in a letter to his Scottish counterpart that “wider negotiations with the Libyans are reaching a critical stage” and a blanket agreement was in “the overwhelming interests for the United Kingdom.” Soon after, Libya ratified a $900 million oil exploration deal with BP. The oil company acknowledged Friday that it had urged the government to sign the prisoner transfer deal, but insisted it had not singled out al-Megrahi as part of the discussion. Straw said Brown had not been involved in negotiations over the prisoner agreement. “I certainly didn’t talk to the PM,” he was quoted as saying. “There is no paper trail to suggest he was involved at all.”

U.S. terror suspect fails to show for hearing in Pakistani court PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — A man suspected to be part of an alleged terror ring in North Carolina failed to show up for a court hearing in Pakistan on Saturday, an official said, bolstering suspicions that he’s on the run. Jude Kenan Mohammad is the only one of eight men in the North Carolina case who is still at large. He was caught last year trying to enter a Pakistani militant stronghold off-limits to foreigners.

Kenan’s family said he was in the country visiting his Pakistani father. Mohammad was booked on charges of weapons possession for allegedly carrying a dagger and traveling without proper documents, but was released on bail. Since news emerged of the North Carolina case earlier this summer, U.S. officials have said they did not know his exact whereabouts. Kamal Khan, senior assistant to Judge Nasirullah Khan in Charsadda district,

said Mohammad’s trial was supposed to start Saturday but that neither the accused, nor his lawyer nor any other representatives appeared. The court issued a summons to Mohammad, who is in his twenties, Kamal Khan said. It was not immediately clear when the next court hearing would be. U.S. federal investigators claim the North Carolina group was gearing up for “violent jihad,” though prosecutors haven’t detailed any specific targets or timeframe.

Islamic fundamentalism protested in Britain LONDON (AP) — Police in Britain say more than 20 people have been arrested after a protest against Islamic fundamentalism turned violent in the city of Birmingham. Counter-demonstrators

clashed with members of the English Defense League in downtown Birmingham on Saturday. The group’s Web site, which describes itself as devoted to “peacefully protesting against radical

Islam,” said it had planned a protest march in the area. Sky News television footage showed masked youths throwing projectiles. Police said they had arrested more than 20 people for violent disorder.

Pakistan: 43 suspected U.S. general: Afghan civilians wounded at bomb site militants killed in Khyber By RIAZ KHAN Associated Press Writer

PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Pakistani troops killed 43 alleged militants in an operation in the Khyber tribal region while airstrikes left several more dead Saturday in the stronghold of the new Taliban chief elsewhere in the northwest, officials said. Militants frequently attack trucks along the famed Khyber Pass, a main route for supplies destined for U.S. troops in Afghanistan. That’s one reason Pakistan is under intense U.S. pressure to crack down on insurgents along the Afghan border, especially the lawless tribal belt where al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden is suspected to be hiding. The U.S. believes militants use Pakistan’s tribal areas and other troubled parts of the

northwest as safe havens from which to plan attacks on Western troops across the frontier. The Taliban-affiliated group Lashkar-e-Islam has been a main target of the latest government offensive in Khyber, which authorities say has killed scores of alleged militants. The paramilitary Frontier Corps announced the latest deaths in a written statement, adding an important headquarters of Lashkar-eIslam was also destroyed. The Khyber operation was launched about a week ago after a suicide bombing at a border checkpoint killed 19 police. The top government official in Khyber, Tariq Hayat, said it would continue until all the militants were flushed out of the region. Elsewhere in the northwest Saturday, Pakistani

fighter jets and helicopter gunships pounded militant hide-outs in three villages of the Orakzai tribal region — the stronghold of new Pakistani Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud. The death toll could not immediately be ascertained, but it could be 20 or more, said one of two intelligence officials who confirmed the attacks. The officials requested anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information to media. Azmat Khan, a resident of one of the three villages, told The Associated Press by telephone he could confirm some people were killed in bombings, but he was not sure how many. Khyber and Orakzai are remote regions largely offlimits to journalists, making it difficult to verify the information independently.

KUNDUZ, Afghanistan (AP) — The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan has confirmed villagers were wounded at the site of a NATO airstrike on hijacked fuel tankers that killed up to 70 people. Gen. Stanley McChrystal inspected the site where

intent on pushing its proposal for a global accord to force banks to hold more capital reserves. In the event, the G-20 agreed to give the Financial Stability Board, an international body established at the London Summit of G-20 leaders in April, the task of drawing up practical proposals that a Sept. 24-25 leaders meeting in Pittsburgh could agree on. Suggested measures that countries could take included proposed clawback mechanisms to ensure that bonuses are linked to the long-term success of deals and could be forfeited if they fail to deliver over a period of years.

key by some countries after the risk-promoting payment culture was blamed for fueling the current financial crisis. British Treasury chief and meeting host Alistair Darling said that there must be no more cases in which “people are being rewarded for reckless behavior.” European countries had pushed for the G-20, which represents 80 percent of the world’s economic output, to enforce an official cap on both individual payouts and collective bonus pots at financial institutions. Britain supported the general effort to reign in bonuses, but not the cap, while the United States was more

G-20 agrees on curbing bankers’ bonuses for ‘reckless behavior’ LONDON (AP) — Top finance officials from rich and developing countries agreed Saturday to curb hefty bankers’ bonuses, but the proposed crackdown on excessive payouts so far falls short of European demands after the U.S. and Britain shied away from imposing a cap. The Group of 20 finance ministers also pledged to maintain stimulus measures such as extra government spending and low interest rates to boost the global economy, warning that the fledgling recovery that provided the backdrop to their meeting here is by no means assured. Curtailing bankers’ pay and bonuses has been seen as

Our Opinion

Treat eco-terrorists like any terrorist The Earth Liberation Front — a band of supposedly pro-environment psychopaths who destroy property, free animals from captivity and create mayhem in the name of stemming economic growth and urban sprawl — have struck again. This time, the ELF has stolen a piece of heavy equipment and used it to topple two radio station towers in Snohomish County, Wash. “AM radio waves cause adverse health effects including a higher rate of cancer, harm to wildlife, and that the signals have been interfering with home phone and intercom lines,” claimed ELF spokesman Jason Crawford in a news release as the group invokes any excuse it can think of for its crimes. After all, the ELF has also targeted expensive homes in the past; are we to believe they’re the staunch defenders of in-house intercoms? “When all legal channels of opposition have been exhausted, concerned citizens have to take action into their own hands to protect life and the planet,” Crawford said. The ELF was founded in England in 1992, and by 2001 had been named the top domestic terrorism threat in the United States by the FBI. Its intent is to “use economic sabotage and guerilla warfare to stop the exploitation and destruction of the environment,” yet the group claims that it takes “all necessary precautions against harming any animal — human and nonhuman.” Those goals — engaging in “warfare” while taking “all necessary precautions against harming any animal” including humans — are outright contradictions. While there are no known instances of a person dying due to ELF actions, that’s been in no small part a matter of pure luck. Among an estimated list of more than 1,200 crimes, ELF-set fires have caused $12 million in damage at a ski resort construction site in Vail, Colo., burned $1 million worth of sport-utility vehicles at a dealership in Oregon, torched a $2.5 million mansion, and caused $7 million in damage at the Center for Urban Horticulture at the University of Washington. In 2003, the ELF caused $50 million in damage at a 206-unit San Diego condominium construction site. The flames reportedly reached an estimated 200 feet high as more than 100 firefighters risked their lives fighting the blaze. It’s a miracle that there has never been a firefighter’s life lost in trying to regain control over the mayhem the ELF has caused. But — despite the FBI’s designation of the group as a terrorist organization, and the ELF’s mounting list of tens of millions in damages caused — we question how seriously the legal system really takes these criminals. In March of this year, ELF member Ian Wallace was sentenced for planting two failed incendiary devices outside a pair of buildings on the campus of Michigan Technical University. In sentencing Wallace, Judge Robert Holmes Bell said that while the ELF criminal “didn’t intend to hurt anybody … this is a serious offense” — and then gave Wallace a prison term of only three years, when Wallace could’ve been jailed for 10. Granted, Wallace had reportedly quit the group by the time he was caught, cooperated with prosecutors and expressed remorse. But he also admitted guilt to a series of other crimes that caused $1.6 million in damages. Three years? With so much damage caused and the potential loss of life always present when arson forces firefighters into duty, nothing but the harshest of sentences should face the ELF and the law enforcement agencies that protect our homeland should be hunting down the ELF as aggressively our military pursues religious militants overseas.

Just say ‘no’ to Big Moo This column was originally published July 27, 2003. Good news: It’s not my fault about the Cheez-Its. I eat a lot of Cheez-Its. I get them at the supermarket when I’m wandering the aisles, trying to locate the items on a grocery list made by my wife. For guys, this is stressful. This is the Scavenger Hunt from Hell. Say, the list says “detergent.” What you want, as a guy, is an aisle with a big sign that says DETERGENT, underneath which are 1,000 identical bottles, all labeled: “DETERGENT.” Instead, you have to make choices. Do you want Wisk or Tide? OK, that’s easy. Wisk had the “ring around the collar” jingle, and you will not buy Wisk until it issues a formal apology to humanity, along with documented proof that everyone involved in producing that jingle has been executed. So Tide it is. But which Tide? Deep Clean Tide? Clean Breeze Tide? Deep Clean Breeze Tide With Bleach? New Ultra-Deep-Clean Lowfat Country Meadow Potpourri Tide Now Fortified With Lemony Scent Calcium? The guy brain cannot handle all these consumer choices. The guy brain is designed to deal with deeper philosophical issues, such as: “What size TV

do I need?” (Answer: “A bigger one.”) So I do what most guys do, which is grab a detergent bottle at random and hope my wife will be happy with it. Which, of course, she is not. She looks at the bottle Dave as if I have Barry brought Tribune Media home a Services 40-ounce maggot, then offers some picky criticism, such as: “This is fabric softener.” Women. But that is not my point. My point is that, while wandering around the supermarket, I eventually get to the Fatal Snacks aisle, and I realize that my wife has forgotten, for the 5,000th consecutive time, to put Cheez-Its on my list. So I buy a box. I always buy a big box, a box that could be used for helicopter storage. My thinking is: “This should be enough Cheez-Its for several weeks!” When I regain consciousness, I’m in my driveway. The Cheez-Its box is on the car seat next to me, empty. My belly is grotesquely bloated,

and I’m covered with sticky orange grit. Slowly, the horrible truth dawns on me: “Somebody has stolen my Cheez-Its and surgically implanted a bowling ball in my abdomen.” No, seriously, I realize that I have consumed the entire box of Cheez-Its. I’ve done this many times, and for years I believed it was my fault. Fortunately, I live in America, where we are gradually coming to understand that nothing we do is our fault, especially if it is really stupid. Thus I was excited when I saw some articles about Dr. Neal Barnard, a vegan anti”Big Food” crusader who has a book out that claims — get ready — “cheese is addictive.” According to a press release, this book shows that cheese “is loaded with casein, a protein that breaks up during digestion to produce morphine-like opiate compounds called casomorphins.” That’s right: casomorphins! The same substances that give ordinary people amazing powers, including the ability to summon the Zords! No, wait, I’m thinking of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. But whatever casomorphins are, they are clearly bad, because if I understand Dr. Barnard correctly — and bear in mind that I am a professional journalist — they are

like morphine. As Dr. Barnard puts it: “Until now, Big Food has tried to defend itself from Big Tobacco-like lawsuits by arguing that unhealthy foods, unlike cigarettes, are not addictive. . . . It’s high time we stopped blaming ourselves and recognized there’s a physiological reason we feel inexplicably drawn to these foods.” I am definitely going to stop blaming myself, now that I understand that Big Food, working in concert with the cow community (a.k.a. Big Moo), is deliberately putting morphine in my cheese. I’m assuming that there is some actual cheese in Cheez-Its. But that is a minor point. The important thing is, it’s not my fault! The question is, what do I do now? I could give up cheese, join the vegans and eat nothing but water and free-range soybean curd. But that seems extreme. So I’ll just summon up my willpower and accept personal responsibility for filing a huge lawsuit against Big Food. Big Food, if you’re reading this column: Please understand that I am not doing this for money. I’m willing to settle today for a sincere apology, plus a huge cash payment. Also, please send me some more Cheez-Its, OK? This box is almost gone.

Think you can hide? Think again Back in May, I flew to Los Angeles. My cell phone did not. I left it in the car, a fact I only discovered as I was lining up at security. Had I found myself standing there in my underdrawers, I don’t think I’d have felt more naked. There was this panicky sense of isolation, this disconcerting feeling of being cut off. Whenever I confessed my plight, I got looks of stark pity like you’d give someone with a terminal disease. It was a very long five days. So I read with great interest an article in the September issue of Wired magazine. “Gone” by Evan Ratliff is about people who, for various reasons, tried to go off the grid, to disappear without a trace. Ratliff’s piece suggests that, in a world where we are ever more interconnected, where your whereabouts can be traced by everything from the GPS in your cell phone to the magnetic stripe on your grocery card, to the camera mounted over the ATM, a world where you can be ratted out by your e-mail account, your favorite e-merchant, your social networking site, your subway card or the sticker on your car that lets you zip through the toll plaza, it has become nearly impossible to simply vanish. To test the thesis, Wired has embarked on an inspired stunt. Ratliff himself disappeared on Aug. 15. He’s trying to stay lost for 30 days. If some reader, using clues provided by Wired, can find him within that time, he or she wins $5,000. Me, I’m rooting for the

writer, not the readers. That’s not just professional solidarity speaking. Rather, it’s a desire to know that what he seeks to do can still be done, that, short of moving into a cave and living off the land, it is still possible to disconnect from the Leonard world. Pitts Those Distributed by of us of a Cagle Cartoons certain age will remember how “The Fugitive,” Dr. Richard Kimble, would arrive in some town seeking menial work to sustain him in his search for the one-armed man.

Even when he was arrested and fingerprinted, it would be long hours before he could be positively ID’d, giving him time to make his escape. All of which feels as primitive as kerosene lamps.

LETTERS, from page ten Editor’s note: This letter was edited considerably due to length.

You can’t stop the health care bill? To the editor: Oh, but we have. President Obama wanted it passed by the August recess. He didn’t get it. The American people stood up and told Congress that we don’t want this bill. … I called Congressman Butterfield’s Weldon office multiple days to ask about a town hall meeting. I was repeatedly told that he was booked and that he may do some phone town halls around the beginning of September. When I asked about his town hall Aug. 5, I was told that it was not a town hall. It was a “secret” meeting with business owners. A “secret”, huh?

(An) eyewitness report tells of 125 people attending. … The AARP is losing members for supporting this bill. Watch this video (http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=AoMNDdQ1_h0). The woman at the podium seems to talk to the seniors like children. She says, “I think we can all agree …” She tried an old debate trick of projecting her view on everyone else. When the crowd informed her that they did not agree, she got irate. … The AARP claims they don’t support this, but they have a page that is designed to debunk “myths” about health care reform. … Their first answer is: “Health care reform will preserve the employer-based health care system, meaning an estimated 200 million Americans will continue to get their coverage through their employers.” They claim this as

a fact. It is not. The bill says there is a grace period of five years for employer coverage. After that, plans must comply with the public option plans. If anything (like the premium) changes within that grace period, then your plan is gone. … President Obama and Congress continue to claim that you can keep your private insurance. Good. Because Medicare and Medicaid are going broke. Who controls them? Government. … President Obama said that there was an illegitimate concern that “a public option is somehow a Trojan horse for a single payer system”. But on 3/24/07, at an SEIU (Service Employees International Union) health care forum, he said, “My commitment is to make sure that we’ve got universal health care for all Americans by the end of my first term as president.” Now they will tell you that

all they are trying to do is get a public option to cover those without insurance. But Rep. Barney Frank says that a public option leads to singlepayer and is the best way to reach single-payer. As we continue to voice our opposition to the government takeover of healthcare, we have been called a mob. It is said that we are organized and paid by the Republican party or Rush Limbaugh or insurance companies. I went to a rally Aug. 8 in Wilson and I can assure you that no one sent me. No one paid me. … This is not about health care. It is about complete control over our lives. … If government controls health care, we cannot get care unless some bureaucrat writes the check.

Healthy Moment

Tennis Elbow

Muscles and tendons become stronger when they are used. They need to be stressed and then given adequate rest so they can rebuild and grow stronger. Sometimes this does not work so well. The tendons may be worked too much and rested too little. This can set a person up for an overuse injury, such as tennis elbow. Tennis elbow is an inflammation of the tendons that attach the muscles of the forearm to the elbow. This results in a painful and tender spot on the outside part of the elbow. Tendonitis can take a long time to heal. Indeed, it often becomes chronic because it is never given enough time to heal; people still have to take care of their children and do their work. Today’s busy schedules often contribute to the problem. A person is too busy to train on a regular basis, and then he overdoes it when the opportunity arises to play tennis or some other sport. Tennis, of course, is only one of the many causes of tennis elbow. Any repetitive work involving the forearm can cause it. The trauma to the tendon can be decreased by a change in tools, such as using a wooden-handled hammer rather than a metal-handled hammer. Your doctor can help suggest treatments and changes in activity to hasten recovery. Anti-inflammatory pain pills can help with the healing, and a tennis elbow band can reduce the symptoms, but limiting activities until it can heal is key to a complete recovery.

Tide rolls in fourth quarter By PAUL NEWBERRY AP Sports Writer

ATLANTA — Virginia Tech hung on for three quarters playing Beamer Ball. Alabama’s superiority could not be denied in the fourth. Score another big season-opening win for the Crimson Tide. No. 5 Alabama overcame a 98-yard kickoff return, two costly turnovers and several silly penalties, finally wearing down No. 7 Virginia Tech in the final quarter for a 34-24 victory Saturday night. It was another rousing start of a season at the Georgia Dome for the Crimson Tide, which began a national title run in Atlanta last season by thumping Clemson. Mark Ingram rushed for 150 yards and finished off Virginia Tech with two fourth-quarter touchdowns. Greg McElroy threw for 230 yards in his debut as Alabama’s starting quarterback,

taking quite a beating but standing tall at the end. Alabama held a staggering 498-155 edge in total yards against Virginia Tech’s touted defense, but the Hokies led 17-16 going to the final period. Ingram put Alabama ahead to stay with a 6-yard touchdown run, set up by McElory’s 48-yard pass to Marquis Maze. McElory was 15-of-30, a perfect complement to Nick Saban’s alwayspunishing ground game. Roy Upchurch added 90 yards rushing and the Tide finished with 268 yards on the ground. Virginia Tech hung around following the mantra of coach Frank Beamer, who’s always believed all three phases of the game can contribute to the scoring. The special teams got a touchdown. An interception led to a field goal. Three costly Alabama penalties handed the Hokies another TD, and another long return and personal foul set up a late TD that

Wells leads Reds past Braves ATLANTA (AP) — With the Cincinnati Reds on a roll, Kip Wells figured he had a good shot at his first win since last April. Giving up just one hit in six innings sure helped him out, too. Joey Votto’s two-run homer backed Wells and lifted the Cincinnati Reds to a season-high sixth straight win, 3-1 over the Atlanta Braves on Saturday night. “I knew I didn’t have a win this season so far. Obviously it’s good to get a win any time much less the fact that we’re playing fairly well right now,” Wells said. “I was trying to stay within myself. I had to pitch a little more efficiently, pitch a little

more finesse, less intensity.” The fading Braves, who fell six games behind Colorado in the NL wild-card race, have lost four straight. Wells (1-3) last won on April 17, 2008, when he was with Colorado. He gave up only a single to Garret Anderson in the second inning. The right-hander walked four, struck out four and hit a batter. “Kip gave us all he had for six innings. It got a little hairy there but he got out of a couple of jams,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. Nate McLouth hit a run-scorPlease see BRAVES, page 2B

tive rushing performance since 2004 — three years before Davis’ debut in Chapel Hill. “There’s definitely some things we can work on in the passing game, but our running game was absolutely awesome,” Yates said. The Bulldogs couldn’t get anything going against a defense returning an Atlantic Coast Conference-best nine starters, finishing with 30 yards rushing — North Carolina’s stingiest game since 2005.

Late surge not enough for Wake in loss to Baylor WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Robert Griffin might have discovered a new way to beat opponents: give up the ball. “I just gave other guys a chance to shine,” Baylors gifted quarterback said. “Teams are going to key on me, based on what I did last year, based on how explosive I was last year. We still won the game.” Griffin completed his first eight passes, finishing with 136 yards passing and a touchdown, to help Baylor beat Wake Forest 24-21 on Saturday. Kendall Wright ran for a touchdown, wide receiver Ernest Smith passed for a score and David Gettis caught one for the Bears, who opened last season with a 41-13 home loss to the Demon Deacons. Griffin, the 2008 Big 12 Freshman of the Year, also ran for 41 yards on 13 carries for Baylor. Joe Pawelek finished with seven tackles, a sack and an interception. The Bears snapped a nine-game road losing streak, which dated back to a 34-21 victory against Buffalo last season. “We deserved what we got, and I give Baylor credit for that,” Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe said. “I think from a confidence standpoint, it would have been better if we started faster on both sides of the football.” After Wake Forest’s Riley Skinner threw his second interception, the Bears took a 17-7 lead

CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina built its identity the past few years around three star receivers. During their first game without them, the Tar Heels wound up defining themselves by their ability to run — and to stop The Citadel from doing so. Shaun Draughn rushed for 118 yards, Ryan Houston had two short touchdown runs and No. 21 North Carolina had its best rushing game under coach

Butch Davis during a 40-6 rout of the Bulldogs on Saturday night. “Great way to start a season,” Draughn said. “It didn’t even feel like I had that many yards.” T.J. Yates threw for two touchdowns in the decisive first half, finishing 9 of 20 for 114 yards in three quarters with scoring passes of 18 yards to Johnny White and 21 yards to Greg Little for the Tar Heels (1-0). North Carolina rolled up 375 total yards, and its 261 on the ground marked its most produc-

The “Kurr” Lake controversy continues. My wife was discussing the different naming conventions over lunch with some of her co-workers this week and told me that a heated debate arose when two of them recalled childhood camping trips, one to Buggs Island, and the other to “Car” Lake. Then someone else tried to say that it was actually “Kurr” Lake, and that was when the catfight broke out. And this took place Walt amongst a group Bowen of people On the Water that live Weekly over 100 miles from Vance County. Oh well, like I told my dad, some people would rather climb to the top of a tall pine tree to argue about something than to stand flat footed on the ground and agree with someone. My dad is one of the tree climbers. Heading back over to Lake Gaston early last Saturday morning to see whether I could still find some fish deep, I ended up catching a few, although I didn’t fish in the areas where I have been catching them over the last few weeks. I plan to not head back to that spot until the BFL tournament that starts on Saturday, Sept. 12. Hopefully some of the bigger ones will still be hanging around those deep ledges, despite the recent cool weather which has probably gotten the fall migration to the backs of the creeks started up. Some of the fish I did catch came from the edges of the grass up in the river, and some others from ledges around the lake where I have located fish over the past few weeks. Leaving just after lunch to beat the heat and to miss all the boaters, I enjoyed a nice afternoon of jet skiing and tubing with my daughter Laura and her husband Eddie. The newlyweds came

Two-minute drill NASCAR Harvick relaims lead late for Nationwide win HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) — Kevin Harvick led most of the race and then passed Dale Earnhardt Jr. with two laps left to regain the lead and win the Degree V12 300 Nationwide Series race on Saturday night at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Harvick and Kyle Busch each went into the pits for gas and four tires with 14 laps remaining while Earnhardt and Brian Keselowski stayed on the track, gambling they had enough gas to finish the race. Earnhardt and Keselowski had enough gas, but were still passed by Harvick and Busch, who finished second. Harvick led 131 of the 195 laps. Harvick claimed his second Nationwide Series win of the season in a car fielded by the race team he built with wife Delana. He also won in Bristol, Tenn., in March.

Truex wins first pole at Atlanta HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) — Martin Truex Jr. has won his first pole at Atlanta Motor Speedway, just in time for the track’s first scheduled race entirely under the lights. Truex won the pole for Sunday night’s Pep Boys Auto 500 with his lap of 184.149 mph on Saturday. It is Truex’s second pole of the season after qualifying first and finishing 11th at the Daytona 500. Truex is leaving Earnhardt Ganassi Racing after the season to join Michael Waltrip Racing and said he wants to give his current team a win. Kasey Kahne, who is 11th in the Sprint Cup standings, qualified second at 183.497 mph.

Spiders bite Blue Devils, 24-16 DURHAM (AP) — Tyler Kirchoff rushed for a touchdown and blocked a punt leading to another score to help Richmond defeat Duke 24-16 on Saturday night. The Spiders, reigning champions of the Football Championship Subdivision, won their 10th straight victory dating back to last season. Kirchoff didn’t handle the ball much, but he made his touches count. He blocked a punt that teammate Jonathan Mayfield returned 5 yards for a touchdown to open the scoring midway through the first quarter. He then scored

on a 1-yard touchdown to put the Spiders ahead 21-9 with less than 10 minutes left in the game. Thaddeus Lewis completed 34 of 55 passes for 350 yards and two touchdowns for the Blue Devils in front of a crowd of 33,311, Duke’s largest at home since 2001. The Blue Devils, who lost their opener for the sixth time in the last seven years, missed a pair of field goals. Both teams struggled to move the ball on offense in the early going, but they had even more difficulty getting rid of it on special teams. Duke’s first pos-

session ended with punter Kevin Jones leaping to catch a high snap and then having his punt blocked by Kirchoff. Two possessions later, the Spiders had a high snap of their own. Standing just in front of his goal line, Richmond punter Brian Radford watched the ball sail over his head out the back of the end zone for a safety. The Spiders went ahead 14-2 on a 2-yard touchdown run by Justin Forte early in the second quarter. Kirchoff kept alive the drive, converting a fourth-and-1 from the Duke 18 with a tough

run up the middle. Duke answered on its ensuing possession when Lewis lofted a long pass that hit Johnny Williams in stride for a 54-yard touchdown. Lewis also engineered a touchdown drive with 2:13 remaining to cut Richmond’s lead to 24-16. But by then, most of the fans who entered the stadium excited about the start of Duke’s second season under coach David Cutcliffe had departed. Derek Hatcher recovered the ensuing onside kick for the Spiders, who ran out the clock.

East Carolina holds off App State, 29-24 By AARON BEARD AP Sports Writer

GREENVILLE — Brandon Jackson and Dominique Lindsay each had first-half touchdown runs to help East Carolina build a big lead and then hold off a late rally from Appalachian State to win 29-24 on Saturday. Jackson sat out last year after transferring from Kentucky, but scored on a 39-yard run on his first carry for a 7-0 lead less than 2 minutes into the game. Lindsay later scored on a 21-yard run to give the Pirates a 24-0 lead early in the second quarter. But the Mountaineers suddenly came alive in the third quarter behind reserve quarterback Travaris Cadet, who directed three second-half scoring drives and got the ball back with 1:28 left and a chance for the win. But Cadet took a costly sack after Appala-

East Carolina’s Brandon Jackson heads to the endzone on a 39-yard touchdown run in the first quarter of ECU’s 29-24 win over Appalachian State in Greenville Saturday. chian State had driven near midfield, and his fourthdown pass fell incomplete to seal the Pirates’ win with 16 seconds left. Edwards, named the top player in FCS last year, is still recovering from a foot injury sustained in a lawnmower accident at his off-campus residence last month. He watched from

the sideline as sophomore DeAndre Presley got the start, then gave way to Cadet after it seemed the Pirates were on their way to an easy win. For the Pirates, it had to be a frustrating way to win their third season opener in five tries under Skip Holtz. They looked downright dominant in the first half,

showing off a deep backfield that helped the Pirates to 189 yards rushing on the day while the defense seemed to overpower the Mountaineers. The Pirates scored on their first three drives and led 24-0 before the Mountaineers even managed a first down. Jackson, who sat out last year after transferring from Kentucky, scored on a 39-yard sprint on his first carry for the 7-0 lead less than 2 minutes into the game. Lindsay later skipped through the line for a 21-yard touchdown to make it 24-0 on the way to 105 yards rushing on the day. But quarterback Patrick Pinkney wasn’t sharp, throwing for just 131 yards and two interceptions. And, eventually, the Mountaineers finally started getting some stops to give their offense a chance to build some needed momentum.

Bulls clinch South Division with win Special to the Dispatch

The Bulls clinched their third-straight International League South Division Championship with a 5-1 victory over the Norfolk Tides Saturday night at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Four Durham pitchers combined to hold Norfolk

to one unearned run while allowing only three hits and one walk with 12 strikeouts. Starting pitcher Rayner Oliveros (1-0) picked up his first Triple-A win with five and two-thirds innings of work, with a run on two hits, one walk and eight strikeouts. The Bulls got on the board first in the third inning with a single from

Henry mateo scoring Elliot Johnson from second. They added two more in the fourth as Johnson and Michel Hernandez both laced back-to-back RBI singles to make the score 3-0. Norfolk platted its first and only run in the sixth inning. After Dave Krynzel stole second and advanced to third on a missed-catch

error by Johnson, Justin Turner plated him with a sacrifice fly to center field, cutting Durham's lead to 3-1. The Bulls added a pair of insurance runs in the bottom of the eighth. With the bases loaded, Hernandez hit a single up the middle to drive in two runs, capping Durham's 5-1 victory.

the sixth, gave up three runs on four hits and three walks in seven innings. The right-hander has gotten either a nodecision or loss in 12 of his 29 starts in which he has allowed two earned runs or less. “I don’t know what to say anymore. It’s getting

frustrating, considering how important these games are,” said Jurrjens, who has a 2.93 ERA. It was the 15th time this season that Atlanta has scored three runs or less in a game Jurrjens has started. The Braves are 1-14 in those games.

BRAVES, from page 1B ing single off Nick Masset in the seventh. Votto hit a two-run homer off Jair Jurrjens (10-10) in the sixth inning to put the Reds up 2-0. The 417-foot drive over the center field fence was his 21st. Brandon Phillips followed with a double to left and scored on an RBI

single by Scott Rolen. “I’m just missing a lot of pitches I was driving before,” said Votto, who is hitting .304. “It was just one of those bad stretches that some players go through. Hopefully I’ve turned the corner.” Jurrjens, who had allowed only one hit until

HEELS, from page 1B “These guys weren’t trying to line up and just run the ball,” North Carolina safety Deunta Williams said. “They were trying to trick us and do different things. ... There’s not a lot of teams that’s just going to be able to run the ball against our front seven.” Da’Norris Searcy returned a late punt 77 yards for a touchdown for the Tar Heels, who played their first opener as a ranked team since they were No. 12 in 1998 and were upset 13-10 by Miami (Ohio). This one was nowhere near that close after a second quarter in which North Carolina scored on four straight possessions. The halftime stat sheet was all Tar Heels: They led 23-0, outgained the Bulldogs 204-73, held a 108-16 advantage in yards rushing and forced four turnovers. Citadel coach Kevin Higgins said his defense “was on the field too long, and they got worn down. That was obvious to see.”

The only thing in question after the break was whether North Carolina could polish off its first shutout since beating Duke 38-0 in the 1999 finale. Sam Keeler spoiled that with a 42-yard field goal with about 7 1/2 minutes left and added another kick in the final minute. Bart Blanchard was 21 of 37 for 117 yards for The Citadel, but threw three first-half interceptions. Two were picked off by Williams — including one in the end zone that thwarted the Bulldogs’ best chance for a touchdown. At least The Citadel kept things closer than it did its last time out — a 70-19 loss to eventual national champion Florida in last year’s finale. That wasn’t much consolation for a Championship Subdivision team looking to beat one of the big boys for the first time since 1992. This was a punishing all-around effort from the

Tar Heels. They entered Davis’ third season hoping to take the next step toward becoming an annual contender in the ACC — but also looking for a way to replace Hakeem Nicks, Brooks Foster and Brandon Tate. Yates spent his night spreading the ball around. Six players caught passes from him, although nobody had more than two catches and his numbers were marred by several drops. He capped the Tar Heels’ second possession of the second quarter with his scoring pass to White to make it 10-0, before hooking up with Little shortly before halftime for the play of the game. Yates was flushed right but found Little outside the hash marks. The onetime running back spun around one defender and shook off three arm tackles while cutting back across the field for his first touchdown catch since 2007. “It was kind of a scramble,” Little said.

FISHING, from page 1B over from Raleigh with their new baby, a tiny kitten named Eva, who terrorized Fred with hisses and face slaps, despite being about one-tenth of his size. Sunday I headed out on Kerr (pronounced “Car�) Lake before 3 a.m. hoping to catch some bass on top water lures. After fishing for over four hours with only one bite (that turned out to be a small channel catfish that smacked a buzz bait for some reason), I headed back to the house for a nap just after sunrise. Susan and I got up around 9 a.m. to enjoy a wonderful breakfast (of homemade link sausage from Billy’s in Wallace) with the family before Laura headed back to Raleigh. Susan and I took a long Jet Ski ride and swam with Fred to cool off Sunday afternoon. You could feel it getting cooler as the day went on and the humidity dropped as the cool front came through. This has surely been strange weather this week, almost like fall. My cousin Jim reports that fishing is picking up at the coast as the weather turned cool there overnight. It was 64 degrees at his house in Whiteville Wednesday morning. If this trend continues, the fishing should pick up even more. Pogies (baitfish) are still located just off Holden

Beach, however now they are holding in balls and you have to look for the concentrated dark colored water to find them. The Pogies were also numerous in the waterway and were a great size for flounder fishing. Several folks have directed their efforts towards Spanish mackerel and bluefish. The Spanish are really thick just off the beach. Not many people like to eat blue fish, but they do make great king mackerel bait. You can assume where there are blues, there are kings. There are reports of king mackerel at the Yaupon Reef, and with the cooler weather, the near shore king bite should start heating up. Inshore there have been some doormat flounder caught lately and that should continue. The cooler water will turn the trout back on as well, and they should really bite well in October and November. Next week’s article – Reports from Lake Gaston and Kerr Lake from the long Labor Day holiday weekend. Tip of the week – Use a fluorocarbon leader when fishing with the new braided lines. The fish won’t see it and you’ll get more bites. Contact the writer at waltbowen@yahoo.com.

The Tide sure feels at home in Atlanta to start the season, following up last year’s 34-10 blowout of favored Clemson on the very same field. That victory propelled Alabama to a 12-0 record during the regular season, but their national title hopes were dashed by Florida in the Southeastern Conference championship game.

WAKE, from page 1B early in the third quarter when Wright scored on a 37-yard run. Baylor pulled ahead by 17 points later in the quarter when Smith caught a lateral from Griffin and then tossed a 33-yard touchdown to Lanear Sampson. “Weve got a lot tricks left,� Griffin said. “Coach (Art) Briles is an offensive genius, everybody knows that. We might have used three or four today, but we probably have about 15 in the bag.� Skinner connected with Andrew Parker for a 5-yard touchdown with 3:57 remaining to bring the Deacons within 24-21.

That was as close as they would get, with Griffin and Baylor running all but the final 1:23 off the clock. Skinner, who is currently the all-time ACC leader in completion percentage, completed 20 of 31 for 143 yards and two touchdowns, but he threw three interceptions. “We made it a little more interesting that it needed to be,� Briles said. “I really thought our guys, for the most part, played good enough to dominate this football game.

Bradford injured, BYU upsets Sooners ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — With Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford helplessly watching on the sideline, his right arm in a sling, BYU upset No. 3 Oklahoma 14-13 on Saturday night. Max Hall threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to wideopen McKay Jacobson in the back of the end zone with 3:03 left. The Sooners’ last hope to recover and win without their star quarterback Bradford ended when Tress Way came up short on a 54-yard field goal with 1:23 left. BYU players exchanged flying chest bumps right away, then celebrated even more wildly when their upset was complete, a stunning end to the first college football game — and first regular-season game — ever played at the nearly $1.2 billion Cowboys Stadium. The Cougars last victory versus a ranked nonconference opponent was against No. 1 Miami in 1990. Bradford sprained his throwing shoulder when he was tackled to the turf on a hard, clean hit by linebacker Coleby Clawson in the closing seconds of the first half. Oklahoma kicked a field goal on the next play to up 10-7, but backup Landry Jones wasn’t able to stretch it very much.

No. 1 Florida 62, Charleston Southern 3 GAINESVILLE, Fla.

The Gators unveiled some new wrinkles, won the game in convincing fashion and avoided any major injuries. A better test comes in two weeks, when Tennessee visits Gainesville. The Volunteers beat Western Kentucky 63-7 in coach Lane Kiffin’s debut Saturday. No. 2 Texas 59, Louisiana-Monroe 20 AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Colt McCoy passed for 317 yards and two touchdowns and No. 2 Texas romped past Louisiana-Monroe 5920 on Saturday night. Last season’s runner-up for the Heisman Trophy connected with Jordan Shipley for a 78-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter. Cody Johnson scored Texas’ first three touchdowns on short runs and freshman D.J. Monroe returned a first-half kickoff 89 yards for a TD. Texas got exactly what

No. 4 USC 56, San Jose State 3 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Matt Barkley passed for 233 yards after a slow start to his Southern California debut, and the Trojans’ fleet of tailbacks ran for six touchdowns. Barkley, the first nonredshirt freshman to start a season opener at USC, shook off a rocky first quarter to go 15 for 19 with no interceptions. He was at his best handing off to his fellow Trojans, who pounded the Spartans with six consecutive TD drives after trailing 3-0 early in the second quarter. USC’s formidable offensive line cleared the way for 343 yards rushing, along with two scores apiece by Stafon Johnson and Joe McKnight. Barkley’s only TD pass put USC up 42-3 midway through the third quarter. No. 9 Oklahoma State 24, No. 13 Georgia 10 STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Zac Robinson threw two touchdown passes to star receiver Dez Bryant and also scored on a quarterback sneak as Oklahoma State proved itself deserving of its highest preseason ranking ever. The Cowboys capitalized on a fourth quarter fumble by new Georgia starting

quarterback Joe Cox to seal the season-opening win on a 12-yard touchdown pass from Robinson to Bryant. The two also hooked up on an impressive 46-yard score in the first half that got Oklahoma State’s offense going after a sloppy start.

No. 9 Penn State 31, Akron 7 STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Daryll Clark threw for 353 yards and three touchdowns, and Penn State celebrated coach Joe Paterno’s return to the sideline with a win. A tenacious defense overwhelmed the Zips’ spread attack, holding Akron to 186 yards of total offense. Akron didn’t record a first down until the third quarter, with Penn State leading by 31. The Nittany Lions scored on their opening drive on a 5 yard run by Evan Royster and never looked back. Graham Zug’s leaping 19-yard touchdown catch gave Penn State a 31-point cushion just before halftime. Clark threw for 254 yards in the first half alone, a school record.

The junior quarterback finished 15 of 18 passing for 315 yards. It was the first easy season-opening win for the Irish since coach Charlie Weis’ first game in 2005, and a good way for Notre Dame to prep for a trip to Michigan next week.

No. 6 Buckeyes fend off late Navy surge By RUSTY MILLER AP Sports Writer

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Brian Rolle intercepted a potential two-point conversion in the closing minutes and returned it for two points the other way, helping No. 6 Ohio State hold off pesky Navy 31-27 on Saturday. A crowd of 105,092 — the largest ever to see the Buckeyes open a season — sat in stunned silence after the Midshipmen scored twice in just over 4 minutes to cut a 29-14 deficit to two points with 2:23 left in the game. Navy went for the tie, but Rolle stepped in front of Ricky Dobbs’ pass and rumbled up the sideline to preserve the win in the Midshipmen’s first trip to Ohio Stadium since 1931 — and keep the luster on next week’s showdown between the Buckeyes and No. 4 Southern Cal. Terrelle Pryor was 14 of 21 for 174 yards, and ran for a touchdown and passed for another to help Ohio State build its lead early in the fourth quarter. The Midshipmen came in as three-touchdown underdogs. The Buckeyes came in considered contenders to play for a national championship. As it was, they barely got by Navy.

The Buckeyes countered with two quick scores. Aaron Pettrey, who kicked three field goals, made a 52-yarder early in the fourth quarter. Two plays later, Dobbs completed a pass in the right flat to Mario Washington that Ohio State safety Kurt Coleman

ripped out of his arms. Linebacker Ross Homan fell on the ball at the Navy 30, and Pryor pitched the ball three plays later to Dan Herron on the option and he bounced in off left tackle on a 6-yard scoring run to put the Buckeyes up 29-14. It stayed that way when Pettrey’s extra-point try clanged off upright. Navy turned it over again on its next possession, but then turned the game around with a defen-

sive stand. The Buckeyes disdained the field goal and went for it on fourth and 2 at their own 15 with 6:30 left, but linebacker Tyler Simmons surged forward to stop Herron for no gain. On the next snap, Dobbs lofted a perfect spiral over the middle to Curry, who had a step on safety Anderson Russell. Curry then outran Russell and Andre Amos to the end zone, completing the third-longest pass play in Navy history. The 85-yard score narrowed the lead to 29-21. Pryor then overthrew a receiver and Navy safety Emmett Merchant intercepted and returned it 28 yards to the Ohio State 33 with just under 4 minutes left. Dobbs ran for 4 yards, then passed for 5. On third and 1 at the 24, he faked a handoff and sprinted straight up the middle for the touchdown. The gasp from the partisan crowd was audible. Navy called timeout to set up for the possible tying two-point try. Dobbs then took the snap and dropped back, passing over the middle. Rolle was the only player close and the junior thundered up the Navy sideline 99 yards for the two points. After getting the onside kick, the Buckeyes finally ran out the clock.

NL Roundup

Pujols homer wins it for Cards in 10th Cardinals 2, Pirates 1 (10) PITTSBURGH (AP) — Albert Pujols lead off the 10th inning with his second career pinch-hit home run, and the St. Louis Cardinals withstood Ross Ohlendorf’s dominating start to beat Pittsburgh 2-1 on Saturday night and leave the Pirates one loss short of an unwanted record. Ohlendorf allowed only an unearned run over eight innings and became the 40th major league pitcher to strike out the side on nine pitches in an inning, but didn’t figure in the decision. The Pirates lost their ninth in a row and 81st of the season and, with one more loss, would become the first team in any of the four major American pro sports to have 17 consecutive losing seasons. Giants 3, Brewers 2 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Matt Cain outpitched Yovani Gallardo (12-11) for his first win in more than six weeks and the San Francisco Giants beat the

Milwaukee Brewers 3-2 on Saturday. Juan Uribe homered to spark a two-run rally in the fourth inning and San Francisco won for the sixth time in eight games. The Giants began the day one game behind Colorado for the NL wild card. The Rockies hosted Arizona later.

Cubs 5, Mets 3 NEW YORK (AP) — Derrek Lee homered twice and drove in three runs in his return to the lineup. Rich Harden struck out 10, all swinging, and Aramis Ramirez also had a two-run homer for Chicago, which scored its most runs since beating the Mets 11-4 last Saturday. Harden (9-8) pitched five effective innings and the Cubs won for the third time in seven games. The righthander allowed two runs, one earned, and seven hits to improve to 4-2 with a 2.40 ERA since the All-Star break. Figueroa (2-4) collected eight more strikeouts but

was undone by two big swings from Ramirez and Lee, back in the lineup after missing two games to be with his wife following the birth of their second child early Thursday morning.

Astros 5, Phillies 4 HOUSTON (AP) — Kaz Matsui’s bases-loaded single drove in two runs in the bottom of the ninth to give the Houston Astros a 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday. With one out, Geoff Blum walked and Chris Voste singled. Jason Michaels then walked to load the bases. After Michael Bourn grounded out, Brad Lidge (0-7) seemed as if he might escape, but Matsui sent the winning hit back up the middle to give the Phillies closer his 10th blown save of the season. Rockies 4, D-Backs 1 DENVER (AP) — Jose Contreras paid immediate dividends for the Colorado Rockies. Acquired on Monday

from the Chicago White Sox for minor league pitcher Brandon Hynick, Contreras pitched 6 2-3 solid innings to lead the Rockies to a 4-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Seth Smith homered and scored three runs and Carlos Gonzalez also homered for Colorado, which maintained its one-game lead over the Giants in the NL wild-card race.

Marlins 9, Nationals 5 WASHINGTON (AP) — Hanley Ramirez homered, Josh Johnson earned his 14th win and the Florida Marlins beat Washington 9-5 on Saturday night, handing the woeful Nationals their season-high eighth consecutive loss. Brett Hayes also homered for the Marlins and Johnson (14-4) allowed two hits over five innings. The right-hander walked three, struck out one and retired his final 11 batters in Florida’s fourth straight victory. He is 7-2 in his last 10 starts, and 5-0 in his career against the Nationals.

AL Roundup

Mora drives in three, leads O’s past Rangers Orioles 5, Rangers 4 BALTIMORE (AP) — Melvin Mora homered and drove in three runs, rookie Brian Matusz (4-2) earned his third straight win and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Texas Rangers 5-4 Saturday. Mora hit a solo homer in the second inning, a two-out RBI single in the third and snapped a 4-all tie with a two-out single in the fifth. Besides his sparkling performance at the plate, the third baseman also made an outstanding catch of a foul bunt by Ian Kinsler in the eighth inning. White Sox 5, Red Sox 1 CHICAGO (AP) — Gavin Floyd retired his first 17 batters, gave up only three hits in eight innings and struck out a career-high 11. Floyd (11-9), who issued no walks, had a perfect

game going before Nick Green lined a single to center with two outs in the sixth on a 1-1 pitch. After Green’s clean single, fans gave Floyd a standing ovation. Once he retired the side, teammate Mark Buehrle, who pitched a perfect game against the Rays in July, went up and gave him a hug in the dugout.

Yankees 6, Blue Jays 4 TORONTO (AP) — Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano homered and Andy Pettitte won his fourth straight start. The AL East leaders, who had a seven-game winning streak snapped Friday, have won 15 of 19 on the road. Both homers came off rookie left-hander Brett Cecil (6-4), who allowed three runs and seven hits in 4 2-3 innings while losing for the third time in

four starts.

Twins 4, Indians 1 CLEVELAND (AP) — Scott Baker won his seventh straight decision and extended his mastery of the Cleveland Indians. Baker, who gave up one run in six innings, is 4-0 with a 0.93 ERA in four starts against Cleveland this season. The righthander hasn’t lost since July 7, a span of 11 starts. Andy Marte homered for the Indians in the third, ending Baker’s consecutive scoreless streak against the Indians at 18 innings. Tigers 8, Rays 6 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Pinch-hitter Marcus Thames came through with a tiebreaking single during a two-run eighth inning and Alex Avila had a two-run homer to lead the streaking Detroit Tigers past the Tampa

Bay Rays 8-6 on Saturday night. Detroit, which overcame a three-run deficit, went ahead 8-6 when Thames hit a bases-loaded single and Adam Everett drove in a run with a sacrifice bunt. The AL Central leaders, who also got a homer from Placido Polanco, have won five in a row.

Angels 2, Royals 1 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Erick Aybar had three hits, including a tiebreaking RBI single in the 11th inning, as the Los Angeles Angels beat the Kansas City Royals 2-1 Saturday night. Aybar’s single off Yasuhiko Yabuta (0-1) scored Torii Hunter, who led off the 11th with a single and moved to second on a wild pitch. After Juan Rivera walked with one out, Aybar stroked a run-scoring single to right.

Minnesota spoils Paulus’ debut, wins 20-17 in OT By JOHN KEKIS AP Sports Writer

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Eric Ellestad kicked a 35yard field goal in overtime to give Minnesota a 20-17 victory over Syracuse on Saturday, spoiling the debut of Orange quarterback Greg Paulus in the opener for both teams. Paulus was 19-for-31 for 167 yards and one touchdown, but the former Duke point guard threw his only interception in the extra period to give the Gophers the big break they needed. Adam Weber was 19-for42 for 248 yards and Eric Decker had nine catches for 183 yards to lead Minnesota. Paulus had not played football since he was honored as 2004 national player of the year at Christian Brothers Academy in suburban Syracuse. New coach Doug Marrone, who played for the Orange in the mid-1980s, made Paulus the starter less than two weeks into the preseason. Paulus showed great poise for somebody who had never played the position in college, and his offensive line provided good protection — Paulus was sacked just twice, one of which ended in a roughing

the passer penalty against the Gophers. Paulus appeared calm and collected for most the game, but his ill-advised pass on a scramble on the first possession of overtime sent the Orange to defeat. Paulus, who received an NCAA waiver to play football at Syracuse with his one remaining year of athletic eligibility, seemed at home after the Orange’s first snap of the game sailed way over his head and led to a quick Minnesota touchdown. He looked off defenders and scrambled when he had to, displaying the flair that made him a record-setting high school quarterback five years ago. With Syracuse trailing 14-3 late in the first quarter, Paulus electrified the near-capacity crowd of 48,617, which included former Syracuse star Donovan McNabb, with his first collegiate scoring pass. Facing a second-and-6 from the Minnesota 29, Paulus fooled three defenders with a pump fake and hit a wide-open Mike Williams near the goal line to move the Orange within 14-10. It marked the 10th straight game Williams has had a TD catch, a school record.

Panthers cut 2 more than needed; Irvin on IR By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTE — The rules said the Carolina Panthers had to cut to 53 players. They didn’t stop there. Ready to pluck players off the waiver wire to fill a glaring need at defensive tackle, the Panthers reduced their roster to 51 players on Saturday. The moves included putting third-round pick Corvey Irvin on injured reserve and waiving fellow defensive tackle Marlon Favorite. “We just decided that we were going to have two spots there and look to fill them,” general manager Marty Hurney said. Hurney revealed Irvin tore the medial collateral ligament in his knee in Thursday’s preseason finale against Pittsburgh. He was expected to provide depth at a position where the Panthers have few options. Favorite, an undrafted rookie, had seen some time as a starter after Maake Kemoeatu ruptured his Achilles’ tendon on the first day of training camp. The Panthers have also used Nick Hayden there and acquired Louis Leonard from Cleveland on Tuesday. Starter Damione Lewis is the only other defensive tackle on the current roster. Hurney wouldn’t identify players he’s seeking, but said he and the coaching staff were planning to scour the waiver wire late Saturday. “If there are any claims we have until noon

(Sunday) to put them in,” Hurney said. Carolina could also use one of its open roster spots on a punt returner. Rookie Larry Beavers, one of three Panthers to fumble punts Thursday, was waived, leaving Kenny Moore and Captain Munnerlyn on the depth chart. Mark Jones, Carolina’s return man last season, is available after being released by Tennessee. The Panthers again kept kickoff specialist Rhys Lloyd, who had an NFL-high 30 touchbacks last season. Carolina also kept an extra fullback, fourth-round pick Tony Fiammetta, who didn’t come to close to taking starter Brad Hoover’s job. Only four receivers are on the roster, while defensive end Hilee Taylor made the team despite a quiet preseason. Jeremy Leman, one of the surprising stars of the preseason, was cut along with Mortty Ivy, giving Carolina just six linebackers. Other players let go were quarterback Hunter Cantwell; running backs DeCori Birmingham and Jamall Lee; receivers Jason Chery, Kevin McMahan and Marcus Monk; tight end Andrew Davie; offensive linemen Patrick Brown, Justin Geisinger, Keith Gray and Jonathan Palmer; defensive lineman George Hypolite and Casper Brinkley; linebackers Anthony Heygood and Kelvin Smith; safeties Kevin Kaesviharn, Paul Chiara and Joe Fields; and cornerback D.J. Clark.

17-year-old Oudin upsets Sharapova By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer

Melanie Oudin celebrates her victory over Maria Sharapova during the third round of the U.S. Open in New York Saturday.

NEW YORK — She sat there in shock. Then, the tears started falling. Believe it or not, 17-yearold Melanie Oudin is the toast of the town at the U.S. Open. Gritting her way through a shaky third set, the 70th-ranked player from Marietta, Ga., pulled off her second upset of the Open on Saturday, defeating a moreseasoned, more-famous, more-moneyed opponent — 29th-seeded Maria Sharapova, 3-6, 6-4, 7-5. “I don’t even know what to say right now,” Oudin said, choking back tears in her postmatch interview

in Arthur Ashe Stadium. “Thank you so much for cheering for me.” Sharapova, who has won this tournament once, usually gets those cheers. But on this cloudless day in Queens, the fans were rooting for a new potential queen — the one who stamped the word “Believe” on her shoes, but probably didn’t see this coming so soon. “My goal was to make the top 50,” she said. “But if I keep playing like this, who knows? Hopefully, I can get as high as anything.” She added this upset to one over No. 4 Elena Dementieva in the second round and a win over for-

mer No. 1 Jelena Jankovic earlier this year at Wimbledon. Sharapova, though, was the biggest name in the bunch. Oudin’s confidence is growing as quickly as her resume, and suddenly, it does seem like anything is possible. Her fourth-round match is against No. 13 Nadia Petrova of Russia, though there’s a sense she may have already knocked out the two toughest players on her side of the draw in Dementieva and Sharapova. No. 5 Jankovic is also gone, along with No. 11 Ana Ivanovic. No. 1 Dinara Safina is still there, but she has been playing poorly. The Williams sisters

are on the other side of the draw and it may not be too early to dream about the third-best American, Oudin, going against one of the two best for the U.S. title. “I’ve always been so competitive,” Oudin said. “I go out there and fight as hard as I can. I have ’Believe’ on my shoes. That’s what I did today. I ended up winning and I’m just so happy.” In men’s play, No. 1 Roger Federer extended his winning streak to 37 at the U.S. Open, overcoming some shaky play for a 4-6, 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 victory over No. 31 Lleyton Hewitt. It was Federer’s 14th straight victory over Hewitt, a former No. 1 who won the U.S. Open in 2001.

O’Hair, Furyk grab the early lead in Boston By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

NORTON, Mass. — Sean O’Hair hasn’t made many birdies lately. He saw more than his share Saturday in another day of low scoring at the Deutsche Bank Championship, and some of them were even his own. O’Hair was 8-under par in an eight-hole stretch in the middle of his round, sending him to a 7-under 64 and a share of the lead with Jim Furyk after 36 holes on the TPC Boston. O’Hair and Furyk, who made six birdies in his round of 67, played in the same group with Retief Goosen, who had a 67 and wound up two shots behind. The threesome combined to make 17 birdies and one eagle. “It can either help your or it can really hurt you,” O’Hair said of watching his partners keep making putts. “If you get impatient out there, it can be a detriment. But with the attitude I had out there the last couple of days, it was nice.” No one needed to make birdies quite like Tiger Woods. He was on the cut line when he made the turn and was desperate to secure a tee time for Sunday and make up as much ground as he could. After an unlikely par save from a buried lie in the bunker, Woods gave himself seven

consecutive birdie putts inside 12 feet. He made four of them for a 67, although he still was seven shots behind. O’Hair and Furyk were at 12-under 130, two shots clear of Goosen and Marc Leishman, who had a tournamentlow 62. Nearly half the field of 99 players shot in the 60s. Scott Verplank made an eagle for the second straight day on his way to a 68, leaving him a group of players at 9-under 133 that included Justin Leonard, Mike Weir, Kevin Sutherland and John Senden, who recorded the rarest shot in golf. Senden made a double eagle on the par5 second hole, holing out from 250 yards with a 4-iron. He shot a 64. “It looked like it was just going to roll to the back of the green or just over the back,” Senden said. “And then when the I saw the cheers go up, I knew it was in the hole, so it was exciting.” Most of the excitement came in the morning, however, as O’Hair, Furyk and Goosen lit up the scoreboard in pristine conditions. The best viewing belonged to Geoff Ogilvy in the group behind them. “When you’re watching the group ahead of you throwing birdie after birdie, you know you have to keep making them,” said Ogilvy, who managed a 68 and was in the large group at 8-under 134.

Aggies edge Winston-Salem WINSTON-SALEM (AP) — Mike Mayhew’s 5-yard touchdown run capped a nine-point fourth quarter in North Carolina A&T’s 19-10 win over Winston-Salem on Saturday night. The Aggies, who led 13-10 after a field goal by Patrick Courtney in the third quarter, secured the game following a Winston-Salem fumble. Brandon Young recovered the fumble by Winston-Salem quarterback Branden Williams on the Rams’ 18-yard line with 4:14 left in the

game. Mayhew scored after Carlton Fears rushed for 17 yards on two carries. Fears had 131 passing yards and 78 rushing yards and one touchdown. The Rams, who fumbled the ball twice for turnovers, had just 33 rushing yards in the game. Williams threw for 42 yards, but lost 20 on the ground. Jarrett Dunston had the Rams’ lone touchdown on a 1-yard run in the second quarter.

Dwyer drives Ramblin’ Wreck past JSU By GEORGE HENRY Associated Press Writer

ATLANTA — Jonathan Dwyer ran for two touchdowns, and No. 15 Georgia Tech had 335 yards rushing in a 37-17 victory over Jacksonville State on Saturday. The Yellow Jackets (1-0) rested many of their starters in the second half with Clemson visiting Bobby Dodd Stadium on Thursday. Dwyer, the 2008 Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year, scored on the first play from scrimmage, taking an option pitch for a 74-yard touchdown. He finished with 95 yards rushing on seven carries, including a 5-yard touchdown later in the first quarter. Jacksonville State (0-1) trailed 31-7 at halftime, scoring on Brooks Robinson’s 20-yard flea-flicker TD catch. After Dwyer’s first score,

Georgia Tech running back Jonathan Dwyer is flanked by Josh Nesbitt and Demaryius Thomas as he celebrates scoring a touchdown against Jacksonville State during the first half of Saturday’s game. Jacksonville State fumbled away the ensuing kickoff when Anthony Barnes knocked the ball loose from Jamal Young, and Jemea Thomas recovered at the Gamecocks 23. Scott Blair’s 20-yard field goal ended that drive. The Yellow Jackets went

up 17-0 on Dwyer’s second TD run later in the first quarter. Georgia Tech’s Demaryius Thomas caught four passes for 101 yards. His 56-yard reception put the Yellow Jackets on the Jacksonville State 17 midway through the sec-

ond quarter. Josh Nesbitt ended the four-play drive by running for a 10-yard touchdown on a quarterback keeper that made it 24-7. The schedule gets no easier next week for Jacksonville State, as the FCS school visits Florida State. Calvin Middleton led the Gamecocks with 59 yards rushing on 11 carries. Quarterback Marques Ivory completed 23 of 38 passes for 193 yards, two TDs and one interception that Georgia Tech safety Morgan Burnett picked off for the 11th of his career. Nesbitt was 6-of-11 for 141 yards. Anthony Allen’s 26-yard TD catch made it 37-10 early in the fourth quarter. Georgia Tech’s halftime lead was padded in the final minute when Jerrard Terrant returned a punt for a 58-yard score. It was the Yellow Jackets’ first TD on a punt return in six years.

Boston College hammers Northeastern, 54-0 By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer

BOSTON — Montel Harris scored on a 48-yard run on Boston College’s first play from scrimmage, and the Eagles ran away from Northeastern for a 54-0 victory on Saturday. Harris ran for 104 yards and three touchdowns — two rushing, one receiving — in the first half. Justin Tuggle and David Shinskie failed to settle the BC quarterback competition: Both had their way with the Football Championship Subdivision Huskies. Tuggle was 3 of 5 for 56 yards, and Shinskie was 7 for 10 for 110 yards. Billy Flutie, the nephew of BC Heisman Trophy winner Doug Flutie, had his first career touchdown

catch, and the Eagles outgained Northeastern in total offense 441-131. Northeastern quarterback Alex Dulski left with an unspecified injury after a 2-yard run in the second quarter. Matt Carroll replaced him and went 4 of 8 for 28 yards. It was the second career victory for new BC coach Frank Spaziani, the longtime assistant who was promoted when Jeff Jagodzinski was fired after trolling for NFL jobs. Spaziani was the interim coach for a 2006 bowl game after Tom O’Brien defected to North Carolina State. Spaziani led the team onto the field from the tunnel. Then, he turned over the yellow towel he traditionally drapes over his shoulders to line-

backer Mark Herzlich, the Atlantic Coast Conference defensive player of the year who is sitting out this year after being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. The crosstown rivals are familiar foes in February, when they play in the Beanpot with Boston University and Harvard for the area’s college hockey bragging rights. What’s been a bit of a mismatch on the ice — BC has won 14 Beanpots to four for Northeastern — has been a farce in the football season: BC is now 5-0 against Northeastern, winning by a combined score of 163-30. After the Huskies’ first possession went 3 yards, Ron Conway’s punt took a BC bounce and rolled back to the Northeastern 48 before it was finally downed.

Cavs stunned by William & Mary By HANK KURZ Jr. AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — R.J. Archer was still trying to comprehend it all. The redshirt senior, who grew up near Scott Stadium and was a regular in the stands for Virginia games, came home as William & Mary’s quarterback on Saturday night and played almost mistake-free football in leading the Tribe to a 26-14 victory against Virginia. “I couldn’t have written it any better,” said Archer, who added that he attended several camps at Virginia, but was told he could walk on “if it doesn’t work out somewhere else.” Instead, he picked William & Mary, and earned the starting job in his final year. “To play any big school in front of so many fans is great, but just to have so many family and friends here, it’s kind of hard to describe,” the Earlysville native said. B.W. Webb had three interceptions and returned the last 50 yards for the game-clinching touchdown as the Tribe forced seven turnovers in the debut of the Cavaliers much anticipated spread offense, handing Virginia its first loss to a lower division school since 1986. William & Mary was the winner then, too, a 41-37 victory. But this was supposed to be a big night for the Cavaliers, what with Vic Hall back at quarterback full-time as part of a threequarterback rotation, and the team running new offensive coordinator Gregg Brandon’s spread offense that was expected to be

Harris took the handoff from Tuggle and went left, breaking a couple of tackles near the line before heading to the end zone. Rich Gunnell returned Northeastern’s next punt for 56 yards to the Huskies’ 29; five plays later Josh Haden ran it in from the 7 to make it 14-0. After another three-and-out, Shinskie took BC downfield before Harris scored from 4 yards out and it was 21-0 at the end of the first quarter. The next two BC possessions were the best of the day for the Northeastern defense, which forced BC to punt and kick a field goal. But then Tuggle hit Colin Larmond Jr. for 42 yards to set up another TD, a 6-yard pass to Harris that made it 38-0.

Tigers win over MTSU, but Spiller injured By PETE IACOBELLI AP Sports Writer

CLEMSON, S.C. — C.J. Spiller, who opened the game with a 96-yard kickoff return touchdown, did not play the second half because of injury in Clemson ’s 37-14 win over Middle Tennessee on Saturday. Spiller returned to the Tigers for his senior season for one last crack at an Atlantic Coast Conference championship. He showed off that desire — along with some blazing speed — as he broke through the Blue Raiders for his school-record fourth career return for a touchdown. However, Spiller appeared to come up funny after his 50-yard punt return in the second quarter. He returned for a couple of snaps after that and jogged to the locker room with about 3 minutes left in the quarter. Spiller returned early in the third to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines. Athletic spokesman Tim Bourret said Spiller’s injury was not considered serious. Receiver Jacoby Ford picked up where Spiller left off, striking for a 61-

yard punt return score. Ford also added a 43yard touchdown catch. The Blue Raiders also struggled with Clemson’s defensive speed. They didn’t pass midfield in the opening half and fell to 1-7 all-time against ACC opponents. Clemson and Spiller, its Heisman hopeful, couldn’t have asked for a better start with his opening score. The touchdown gave him a school record for return TDs he shared with Justin Miller. Spiller looked like he was on his way to second return score, sprinting 50-yards down the sidelines with a Middle Tennessee punt to start the second quarter. But kicker Alan Gendreau got in front of Spiller and slowed him just enough for the Blue Raiders to catch up. Spiller tested his legs on the side during the Tigers next two offensive series. He finally persuaded Swinney to let him back on, but he did not touch the ball. With about 3 minutes left before halftime, Spiller jogged to the locker room. He came out after the third-quarter kickoff and did not go back in.

William & Mary quarterback R.J. Archer is tackled by Virginia’s Aaron Clark during Saturdays’ game in Charlottesville, Va. dynamic. Instead, it was anemic as none of the quarterbacks played well. They finished a combined 18-for-33 for 137 yards and were more effective running the ball than throwing it. Hall fumbled it away twice from behind center and a third time when he muffed a punt inside his own 10 yard-line, setting up the field goal that put the Tribe ahead to stay. Jameel Sewell, a two-year starter before missing last season for academic reasons, threw three interceptions, including the one the Webb took back untouched with 2:39 remaining. And Marc Verica, who started nine games last season, wasn’t brought into the game until the fourth quarter with Virginia trailing 19-14 and fumbled the ball away on his 11th play.

The defense, too, played a role, getting no pressure at all on Archer, who completed 23 of 45 passes for 184 yards and ran nine times for 46 yards, including a 23-yard burst. He threw one interception — at midfield on the first play of the fourth quarter — but Virginia ran three plays and had to punt the ball away, drawing boos from a stunned crowd. “Words can’t really describe how high we were before the game, and now it’s some of the lowest of lows,” linebacker Denzell Burrell said. “We’ve got to make a quick turnaround.” The Cavaliers entertain No. 17 TCU next Saturday. The Tribe, which got four field goals (in six attempts) from Brian Pate, finished with a 309-269 total offense advantage after a start that made it seem like a rout was in order.

ReSTART Internet Addiction Recovery Program client Ben Alexander listens to music in his room at the program’s facility in Fall City, Wash. ReSTART is the residential treatment program for online addicts, and is the first of its kind in the United States.

Addicted to the Internet It’s no longer a joking matter, as a Washington clinic shows By NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS Associated Press Writer

FALL CITY, Wash. — Ben Alexander spent nearly every waking minute playing the video game “World of Warcraft.” As a result, he flunked out of the University of Iowa. Alexander, 19, needed help to break an addiction he calls as destructive as alcohol or drugs. He found it in this suburb of high-tech Seattle, where what claims to be the first residential treatment center for Internet addiction in the United States just opened its doors. The center, called ReSTART, is somewhat ironically located near Redmond, headquarters of Microsoft and a world center of the computer industry. It opened in July and for $14,000 offers a 45-day program intended to help people wean themselves from pathological computer use, which can include obsessive use of video games, texting, Facebook, eBay, Twitter and any other timekillers brought courtesy of technology. “We’ve been doing this for years on an outpatient basis,” said Hilarie Cash, a therapist and executive director of the center. “Up until now, we had no place to send them.” Internet addiction is not recognized as a separate disorder by the American Psychiatric Association, and treatment is not generally covered by insurance. But there are many such treatment centers in China, South Korea and Taiwan — where Internet addiction is taken very seriously — and many psychiatric experts say it is clear that Internet addiction is real and harmful. The five-acre center in Fall City, about 30 miles east of Seattle, can handle up to six patients at a time. Alexander is the first patient of the program, which

He spends his days in counseling and psychotherapy, doing household chores, working on the grounds, going on outings, exercising and baking a mean batch of ginger cookies. Whether such programs work in the long run remains to be seen. For one thing, the Internet is so pervasive that it can be nearly impossible to resist, akin to placing an alcoholic in a bar, Cash said. The effects of addiction are no joke. They range from loss of a job or marriage to car accidents for those who can’t stop texting while driving. Some people have died after playing video games for days without a break, generally stemming from a blood clot associated with being sedentary. Psychotherapist Cosette Dawna Rae has owned the bucolic retreat center since 1994, and was searching for a new use for it when she hooked up with Cash. They

decided to avoid treating people addicted to Internet sex, in part because she lives in the center with her family. According to Dr. Kimberly Young of the Center for Internet Addiction Recovery in Bradford, Pa., addiction warning signs are being preoccupied with thoughts of the Internet; using it longer than intended, and for increasing amounts of time; repeatedly making unsuccessful efforts to control use; jeopardizing relationships, school or work to spend time online; lying to cover the extent of Internet use; using the Internet to escape problems or feelings of depression; physical changes to weight, headaches or carpal tunnel syndrome. Exactly how to respond is being debated. For instance, Internet addiction can be a symptom of other mental illness, such as depression, or conditions like autism, experts say. “From what we know,

many so-called ‘Internet addicts’ are folks who have severe depression, anxiety disorders, or social phobic symptoms that make it hard for them to live a full, balanced life and deal faceto-face with other people,” said Dr. Ronald Pies, professor of psychiatry at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, N.Y. “It may be that unless we treat their underlying problems, some new form of ‘addiction’ will pop up down the line,” Pies said. There is debate about whether to include Internet addiction as a separate illness in the next edition of the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders,” due in 2012, which determines which mental illnesses get covered by insurance. Pies and Dr. Jerald Block, of Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, said there is not enough research yet to justify that.

“Among psychiatrists there is general recognition that many patients have difficulty controlling their impulses to chat online, or play computer games or watch porn,” Block said. “The debate is how to classify that.” Cash, co-author of the book “Video Games & Your Kids,” first started dealing with Internet addiction in 1994, with a patient who was so consumed by video games that he had lost his marriage and two jobs. Internet addicts miss out on real conversations and real human development, often see their hygiene, their home and relationships deteriorate, don’t eat or sleep properly and don’t get enough exercise, Rae said. Alexander is a tall, quiet young man who always got good grades and hopes to become a biologist. He started playing “World of Warcraft,” a hugely popular online multiplayer role playing game, about a year ago, and got sucked right in. “At first it was a couple of hours a day,” he said. “By midway through the first semester, I was playing 16 or 17 hours a day. “School wasn’t interesting,” he said. “It was an easy way to socialize and meet people.” It was also an easy way to flunk out. Alexander dropped out in the second semester and went to a traditional substance abuse program, which was not a good fit. He graduated from a 10-week outdoors-based program in southern Utah, but felt he still had little control over his gaming. So he sought out a specialized program and arrived in Fall City in July. He thinks it was a good choice. “I don’t think I’ll go back to ‘World of Warcraft’ anytime soon,” Alexander said.

Are you addicted? 11 signs that you might be a little too connected to the Internet Signs of Internet addiction, according to Hilarie Cash, executive director of the ReSTART center for Internet addiction near Seattle. Three of the following symptoms suggest abuse, five or more addiction: • Increasing amounts of time spent on Internet. • Failed attempts to control behavior. • Heightened euphoria while on Internet. • Craving more time on the Internet, restless when not there. • Neglecting family and friends. • Lying to others about use. • Internet interfering with job and school. • Feeling guilty or ashamed of behavior. • Changes in sleep patterns. • Weight changes, backaches, headaches, carpal tunnel. • Withdrawl from other activities. — The Associated Press

Badd Boyz, Lady Boyz do good with school supply drive The Badd Boyz and Lady Boyz Social Club sponsored a back-to-school supply drive, spearheaded by Barbara B. Davis, who works at Pinkston Street Elementary School as a teacher assistant/ bus driver. The intent of the project was to give school supplies to needy Vance County children in order to prepare them for a new school year and boost their self-esteem. Social club members either purchased or donated money to purchase school supplies. This was the organization’s first school supply drive for needy children. The Social Club Education Committee purchased eight backpacks and each backpack contained notebook paper, pencils, writing tablets, pencil erasers, crayons, pencil sharpeners and colored pencils.

Davis and President Jameel Wiliiams praised the members for their commitment to education and were pleased with the support and overall success of the school supply drive. They look forward to doing it again next year. Both Davis and Williams agreed that it was about the children and their success in school as well as knowing that people in the community care about them. The Badd Boyz and Lady Boyz Social Club members strongly believe that “a mind is a terrible thing to waste” and want to do all they can to make sure Vance County children are prepared. “Children don’t really care how much you know until they know that you care,” said Williams. “When they know you care, (you can) watch their attitudes toward school The Badd Boyz and Lady Boyz Social Club with a portion of the school supplies collected during its recent back-to-school and grades improve.” supply drive.

A few suggestions for the folks who acquire the songs for “Guitar Hero”: • How about a moratorium on Kiss? They were lousy when they started, and their songs haven’t gotten better with time. • Why so little love for punk and New Wave? Dozens of neglected, guitar-centric bands of the late ’70s and early ’80s await your call. • Can you dig a little deeper into the funk archive? Wannabe bassists are definitely up for the challenge. Such quibbles aside, the 85 tracks in “Guitar Hero 5” (Activision, for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, $59.99; PlayStation 2, $39.99) do cover more subgenres of rock than any radio station. You get classic rockers (the Rolling Stones, David Bowie), ’70s meatheads (Grand Funk Railroad, Deep Purple), alt-rock icons (Bush, Smashing Pumpkins) and up-andcomers (Muse, Kings of Leon). Including spinoffs, “GH5” is the franchise’s 12th console entry in five years, and there are signs of burnout: sliding sales, fan grousing, an ad campaign featuring Hugh Hefner and a posse of Playboy Playmates.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Instead of trying to have it all, try to appreciate it all. Then you’ll see why you really don’t want to have it all — too much work. Concentrate on giving your love and undivided attention to one thing at a time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You often allow others to do their own thing while you hold down the fort or tend to responsibilities that may or may not be yours. Well, you need fun, too. Seize the chance to let off some steam. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A special relationship takes focus. If one person gets his or her way more often than the other, the connection will suffer for it now. You will get the opportunity to improve the balance. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Though you sometimes get the overwhelming urge to gripe, you’re coping well with your circumstances. Even your best friends won’t be very receptive to complaints today, so the best thing to do is let it go. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You see how things, and people, could come together to create a bit of magic. You do well matching up a friend with a job, someone who can help with a special project or a love interest. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are certain topics you just know will lead to an unhealthy discussion with some people. You know, but sometimes you forget. Remind yourself before you step out today, and you’ll have a positive experience. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Do a little market research. Learning what others think, as well as what they like and dislike, will be beneficial to your work. This information could lead to a very lucrative end. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Is there such a thing as being too openhearted? If it has you giving out cash and/or personal information to people you just met, then yes. Stay on guard today. If you’re not sure how to handle a situation, buy some time. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re creative and interested in many different areas of study and business. It’s a fine time to dabble. Dip your toe in just to test the waters. Let your gut feelings lead the way. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Big projects inspire your inner warrior to emerge. You might learn that the competition is stiffer than you thought, but you are undaunted. You’re ready to face and conquer (or learn from) whatever greets you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s nothing wrong with wanting people to like you. You set out to impress someone. You’re after a specific reaction, but if you don’t get it, you’ll probably still be delighted with what comes next. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be productive in ways that are not easy to measure, but that shouldn’t diminish your sense of pride. The tangible evidence will come soon enough as you continue working on yourself in this manner.

don’t know.

and you get “Guitar Hero: Van Halen” free in December — demonstrates the publisher’s concern, but “GH5” does deliver new tricks. The focus this time is on social gaming, which “Guitar Hero” kickstarted before the advent of Wii bowling leagues. Everything in “GH5” is built around party play: People can drop in and out of songs without messing up their friends’ performances, and you can switch instruments or difficulty level mid-song. You can also mix any combination of instruments, so if everyone wants to play lead guitar, it’s cool. All the tunes are available right from the start, so there’s nothing to unlock before your friends come over. All this makes “GH5” the most accessible game in the series yet; it’s like having an interactive jukebox in your living room. It’s less satisfying if you’re a solo player. Career mode isn’t as involving or addictive as that in “Rock Band.” As usual, Activision has invited some guest stars: Playable characters include Johnny Cash, Kurt Cobain and Carlos Santana. And in the Xbox 360 version, you can have all three combine in the ultimate backup band for your Xbox Live avatar. Long live rock. Three stars out of four.

DEAR ABBY: Cooking is my hobby. I enjoy hosting luncheons for my friends. I choose healthy, fresh ingredients, plan creative menus and presentation is important to me. However, it seems that someone at the table always pipes up with, “I don’t eat THAT!” I think it is rude and guests should just place an unwanted item on the side of their plate. Am I right? I don’t know how to respond to people who do that. — ANNOYED HOSTESS IN NEW JERSEY DEAR ANNOYED: Here’s how. Smile and say, “If you don’t like that, don’t eat it!” Then pass the relish tray and say, “Would you like some crudites? Nuts?”

DEAR ABBY: My husband, “Fred,” sees absolutely nothing wrong with the fact that he did not take a day off from work to attend my 94-year-old mother’s funeral.

He stopped by the ceremony for the graveside service, then left immediately and returned to work. Fred is an independent traveling salesman who never works more than half a day, so it wasn’t like he needed to hurry back to an office or place of business. He didn’t even have enough love or respect for me or my mother’s family to spend the day with us. Do you agree with me this was unkind? Fred thinks I’m the one who is being unreasonable. — WOUNDED WIFE IN COLUMBIA, S.C. DEAR WOUNDED: Of course his behavior was unkind. It was also insensitive. Regardless of your mother’s age, losing a parent is painful and his place was by your side offering emotional support. It appears you married someone who is usually centered on his own needs, and I’m willing to bet this incident isn’t the only example. Please accept my sympathy on two counts: First for the loss of your mother, and second, for marrying someone who would be willfully absent when you needed him the most. Whatta guy.

DEAR ABBY: I would like to make the public aware of something that is the result of the poor economy. When someone who is hurting financially is invited out to a restaurant, bar, movie, etc., and the person declines your invitation, please don’t take it personally. He or Dear she may be Abby watchUniversal Press ing every penny. Syndicate Every cent matters if it’s needed for food, shelter, bills, etc. A person in this situation simply cannot afford to “splurge” on these kinds of activities. Believe me, I know what I’m talking about. I have been invited to participate in various social events, and I can’t afford to go. This is not something that I want to broadcast either. Some of us may be keeping quiet about it. Let’s face it — it’s an awful situation to be in, but one we hope will not last forever. — IN THAT BOAT IN ILLINOIS DEAR IN THAT BOAT: I’m sorry you’re experiencing tough sailing, and I hope you will be out of rough waters soon. Folks, this person is giving you a timely heads-up. If someone suddenly starts declining social invitations, it does not necessarily indicate that he or she has become antisocial. It may mean the person is financially unable to do so.

Actor Viggo Mortensen, left, and Australian actor Kodi SmitMcPhee pose for photographs before they attend the Premiere of ‘The Road’ at Venice Film Festival, Italy, Thursday, Sept. 3, 2009.

McCarthy’s ‘The Road’ premieres at Venice Film Festival By COLLEEN BARRY Associated Press Writer

VENICE, Italy (AP) — Viggo Mortensen and Kodi Smit-McPhee play father and son on a harrowing and hopeless journey in the film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s devastating novel “The Road,” premiering Thursday at the Venice Film Festival. The movie, like the Pulitzer-prize winning book, is bleak, a search for hope where there appears to be none, but the relationship between the two actors is anything but. Smit-McPhee plays a boy born in the wake of a cataclysmic event that has made life on earth unsustainable. Something akin to nuclear winter has set in: The sky is impenetrably gray and the air is cold. Food of any kind has become an extremely rare commodity, creating desperation. Some who survive, many it would seem, have turned to cannibalism. It is against this backdrop that father and son set out on a journey toward the sea, their version of hope. Preoccupations of the world as we know it don’t matter. Neither father nor son are named. The cataclysm itself is never explained, because, as director John Hillcoat points out: “There were no more media linkups to explain things.” Nor is it clear how long it has been since the world began to end, leaving the boy ageless. “The Road” also stars Charlize Theron, appearing in flashbacks as the boy’s mother, and Robert Duvall as a fellow survivor treading down the same road. Smit-McPhee was 11 when he shot the film, 13 now, but he speaks like someone working the trade for years. As he has. His father is an actor who has coached his son, who by now has appeared in eight productions. The young Australian actor, who pulled off a perfect American accent on screen, said his key to the most emotionally difficult scenes was to stay in the moment — a characteristic that won the admiration of 50-year-old Mortensen, who won fame as Aragorn in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy and an Academy Award nomination for his performance in “Eastern Promises.” “That’s what my dad told me when I first started acting, just be real, be in that moment. So if you don’t know the world, you don’t know the world and you just have to block it all out,” Smit-McPhee said, referring to his character. “I didn’t know what a padlock was.” In one pivotal scene after the pair reach the sea, the boy lets his father know that he shares the burden of their survival, dissolving any illusions the father had that he was protecting his son. Hillcoat’s direction was to be emotional, but Smit-McPhee said that wasn’t working. “You were getting angry,” Mortensen recalled during a

joint interview with the costars, where the easy rapport that developed while filming “The Road” was evident. “I thought: ’I am just going to do it angry,’ “ Smit-McPhee continued. “Just let me do it angry.” “That’s being quick on your feet,” Mortensen said. “But a lot of adult actors would never have figured that out. They would have gone home to the hotel and said, ’Oh, I could have just been angry.’ But you did it there. Under pressure.” Mortensen’s admiration was uncontained. “I can’t think of any other actor of any age who is as present, which is the first thing to be in you job.” Then, turning to SmitMcPhee, he said: “You will keep working and improving, but you have an ability to focus and relax and be in the moment. I remember Robert Duvall, one of the first things we had to do with him, he turned to me and said: ’Where did we get the kid.’ He was very impressed, immediately. ... I think he recognized a kindred spirit.” At other times, SmitMcPhee took physical cues to get the reaction he needed. Early in the film, the boy dissolves in tears, making him seem even smaller and more vulnerable, after his father rinses the boy’s hair in cold water to clean out the blood and guts of a man the father has shot protecting the boy. It helped, the young actor said, that the water was freezing cold, the temperature measuring “minus a lot.” “I don’t know if you can imagine minus-a-lot water on your head,” Smit-McPhee said. Mortensen and SmitMcPhee recounted with enthusiasm a day when McCarthy came to the set with his own son, a year younger than Smit-McPhee. “I remember he came that day and he said, ’This is how I imagined that. And that was awesome,” Smit-McPhee said with emphasis. The two have an idea for a sequel that seemed to be based mostly on the multilingual Mortensen’s nascent ability to speak Norwegian and Smit-McPhee’s interview outfit: black trousers, black dress shirt and a red tie. “It is a Norwegian ghost story. It is called ’The Road to Resurrection.’ I come back as a Viking ghost and he’s in the Italian mob,” said Mortensen. That may be more appealing to Smit-McPhee’s peers than “The Road.” He doesn’t think kids his age would like it very much “unless they are deep thinkers.” A shout out to a kid who lives across the street from Smit-McPhee: He thinks you qualify. But otherwise: “It’s a hard sell,” the young Australian said. “They would think it is cool about the cannibals, and stuff.” “The Road” is in the running for the Sept. 2-12 Venice Film Festival’s coveted Golden Lion.


CMYK 8C • THE DAILY DISPATCH • SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2009

Labor Day is a Federal holiday observed on the first Monday of September, and it celebrates the accomplishments of American workers, both past and present. The efforts of these workers have helped to form the United States of America as we know it today. The holiday is a day of rest, family gathering time, and the last day of summer to many. All schools are closed on this day, as well as all Federal and state offices, banks and many private businesses. In June of 1894, Congress officially made the holiday the first Monday of September. Although the origin of Labor Day is not completely clear, there are many theories regarding who first celebrated the holiday. The Knights of Labor, a labor union that was formed in 1869, decided to hold a parade in New York City on September 5, 1882, to honor its members and all other laborers. The parade was such a success that another was held in 1884, and since then, it has become an annual event. Some believe that the origin of Labor Day came from a man by the name of Peter McGuire. McGuire was a member of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners, as well as a member of the American Federation of Labor. Others believe that the holiday was suggested by a man named Matthew Maguire. Although the actual origin is unknown, it is agreed by most that the holiday is meaningful, because it honors those who put forth an effort in the American Labor Force, shaping the country into what it is today.

Imperfections can be the perfect accent. Interior by Regina-Andrew Design.

s the saying goes, there’s no place like home. And these days people are looking for ways to make their home a more enjoyable living space. “Rather than flipping homes, like people did when the housing market was strong, we’re seeing more and more families embracing what they already have,” says Bob Maricich, president and CEO of World Market Center Las Vegas. “The idea of refreshing one’s environment, even in the smallest ways, can have a restorative power and transform a house to a home.” Home furnishing experts say that it’s important to recognize that it’s the littlest things that matter when you’re making enhancements to your home. Simple touches of a new sofa or end table, rug or even a decorative lamp shade will create a different look and feel to a room or space. This is a small lifestyle change, and not an unobtainable luxury.

Timeless Trends

Nancy Robinson and Julie M. Smith, of Nine Muses Media, have put together some timeless trends that will help you visualize and explore the possibilities for updating your home.

Calm Yourself

Living with a neutral interior palette is like being enveloped by a cloud. Get the look by blanketing rooms in the softest neutral shades: cream, mocha and, most especially (and perhaps surprisingly), gray. “A dash of a neutral metallic accent, such as silver, adds a welcome sparkle,” said Robinson. “It’s like sunlight peeking through the clouds.”

Distressed to Impress

Modern Country is ageless and exudes a comforting charm that takes imperfection to new heights. Natural finishes, heavily distressed surfaces, reclaimed woods, rattan, wicker and other natural textures are livable finishes for busy families. And the look fits farmhouse style or urban loft with equal ease.

Ethnic Inspiration

Far-reaching global influences are no longer far flung. Ethnic-inspired fabrics are turning up all over in American homes. “The organic patterns, vibrant color palettes and handcrafted looks create an aura of sophisticated warmth,” said Smith. What to look for: motifs inspired by traditional African design; susani patterns from Central Asia; ikats and batiks from Indonesia; and handblocked woodprints from India.

Tips for Choosing Furniture

Measure, measure, measure! Too many people don’t measure their rooms, doorways and stairways before buying a furniture piece. Make sure it will not only fit in the room, but will fit through all the doorways it takes to get into the room. Color Trial: Just because you like the color in the showroom doesn’t mean you’ll like it in your house. Lighting and surrounding elements can change a color drastically. Get color swatches and live with them for a few days before making a final decision.

Black and white never goes out of style. Côte de Rhône bedding ensemble by Amity Home.

Reality Check: Think through how this piece of furniture will be used and who will be using it. Small children, pets, shoes on the ottoman, snacking in front of the TV — they all can cause wear and tear on furniture. Light colored fabrics, delicate construction and fine finishes might just have to give way to more practical concerns.

Power Play

A smaller footprint, lighter weight and better performance are important purchase considerations when buying a new laptop. The same things matter when buying home office furniture. In fact, Robinson and Smith note that as laptops have become the most popular home computing choice among consumers, so, too, have writing tables and petite desks moved to the fore. Unlike their executive suite predecessors, these modestly scaled workstations don’t take up an entire room. Instead, they slip easily into most interiors, providing needed workspace without taking up too much space — or too much money.
