U.S. health care reform deal ‘close’ By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — Senate health care negotiators said Monday they’ve narrowed their differences on a host of difficult issues with just a day or so left to seal an elusive bipartisan deal that could change the course of the contentious debate. After months of closeddoor negotiations, Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus said, “We’re getting very close.” But it remained unclear if the Montana Democrat could strike a bargain that would mark a turning point for President Barack Obama’s top domestic priority. The negotiators pared the cost of their 10-year coverage plan to under $880 billion, and also reported progress on several issues, including health insurance for the poor, restrictions on federal funding for abortions, a verification system to prevent illegal immigrants from getting benefits, and ways to encourage alternatives to malpractice lawsuits. With or without Republican support, Baucus said he’ll have a formal proposal on Wednesday to meet a deadline for moving ahead.

be a centrally located office with an accent color scheme in blue. Four other wings, or “units,” will sit at opposing angles to the four corners of the main building, each one at the end of a sidewalk that forks in two after emerging from either end of the administration building. The 500 Unit will be for kindergarten students and first-graders. Its proposed interior color scheme featuring shades of purple, violet and lavender was a big hit with the board. No such luck with the 200 Unit, which is intended for second- and third-graders. Its yellow and brown scheme was panned by several board members. Board Chairwoman Gloria White called the brown tones “sad.” Board member Margaret Ellis noted that “bright colors make school a more pleasant” place to learn.

Hight was instructed to take the colors of the 200 Unit back to the drawing board. For the 300 Unit, for fourth- and fifth-graders, a pallet of blues was again chosen for the accent tones. But board members weren’t enamored of the choices. Ruth Hartness didn’t care for the bright shade of blue chosen for the accent walls, at least not when paired with the blues chosen for the laminate coverings intended for counter tops, cabinets and student “cubbies.” “I’ll tell you what it reminds me of: A nursery,” Hartness said. “It’s a clash of colors instead of a blend,” said board member Robert Duke. Duke’s comment brought a good-natured chuckle from Superinten-

dent of Schools Norman Shearin, who was sitting outside the circle of board members, mostly just observing the goings-on. “Mr. Duke,” said Shearin with a laugh, “jumping right in there with the ladies.” The board found a shade of blue it liked, however, when reviewing the many colors intended for use in the 400 wing, which includes the new school’s multipurpose room, music and art rooms, dining area, and kitchen. A shade of blue — with “a little more gray in it,” board members agreed — had already been tabbed by Hight’s firm for the art room. That shade of blue drew the board’s approval to replace the brighter shade originally intended for use throughout the 300 Unit.

A man has been charged with first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of a 29-year-old man this weekend on the east side of Henderson. Glenn Greene, 27, was booked at 5:30 p.m. Monday after turning himself in at the Police Department. Greene is accused of the death of Carl Hart, of 647 Greene Vance St. Greene is being held without bond pending an appearance in court on Sept. 28. The crime happened at 4:29 p.m. Sunday in the 500 block of Water Street. Officers, upon arrival, found Hart, who was taken to Maria Parham Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. According to North Carolina Department of Correction records available online, a 27-year-old Glenn Greene has been convicted of crimes in the past in Vance County, but the offenses were not violent. Greene was convicted of larceny in 2002, and of driving while intoxicated and driving without a license in 2006.

Henderson council amends rules for citizen speakers By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer

The Henderson City Council on Monday evening unanimously approved amended procedures regarding public speaking at future council meetings. The major change is there will be a standalone public comment phase about any matters of concern not on the council agenda, with that phase to be near the end of council meetings and with more precise rules. That public comment period will require speakers to sign up in advance of the council meeting, with each speaker to be asked to limit comments to five minutes and with the mayor to have the right to impose a three-limit time limit if a large number of persons want to speak. And that public comment period near the end of the council meeting specifies remarks made by individuals are to be “non-personal in nature” and should be “fact-based and issue oriented.” And that public comment period near the end of the council meeting specifies comments involving mat-

Time will be abbreviated, topics restrained ters related to an ongoing police investigative matter and/or the court system “will not be permitted.” And those wishing to comment near the end of the meeting will be asked to give their name and address and say if they are Henderson residents. Rules in place since January 2006 required persons to sign up to speak, with a five- minute time limit at the podium. Those rules said speakers were to be reminded about individual personnel issues being considered confidential and not for discussion, with complaints about individuals to be directed to the city manager. During the Aug. 24 council meeting, a 20-yearold black man, Theodous Bryant, claimed at length he was the victim of police cruelty, along with degrading language because of his race, and claimed an officer physically abused his grandmother. And Bryant identified officers by name. Bryant additionally

made his remarks with the Rev. Clarence “C.J.” Dale at his side. During the Aug. 24 meeting, Councilman George Daye said that, “Authorities are messing up our young folks,” and that, “What is the chief’s job of controlling his officers? We’ve got a problem,” a reference to Police Chief Keith Sidwell, who was not present. Councilwoman Mary Emma Evans at the Aug. 24 meeting expressed sympathy to Bryant, but additionally took verbal shots at the court system, insinuating that unnamed black judges will not think about giving fellow blacks “a break.” Mayor Pete O’Geary turned the Bryant matter over to City Manager Ray Griffin for investigation, with Griffin saying he would contact Sidwell and start discussions. Dale at the Aug. 24 meeting said he believed Sidwell should be fired and additionally accused police of conducting a vendetta against him. And Dale claimed to the

council that the mother of a man who was shot had been unable to reach the police detective in the case. O’Geary said Griffin would check into that matter. And Bryant and Dale were allowed to address the council after the public comment phase of the Aug. 24 meeting had passed. During Monday evening’s council meeting, Griffin, in explaining the amended procedures, said, “This is a recommended tweaking to the current policy council has in order to streamline and make it more clear about our public comment period.” And Griffin said, “The thrust of this also is to differentiate public hearings from the rest of the agenda,” noting that, in the past, sometimes citizens had become confused about when to comment when they had come for the public hearing phase of the meeting. So, there will be three designated speaking times:

• One at the front end of the meeting, when an item is advertised in advance as requiring a public hearing. Examples would be approving the municipal budget, deciding rezoning items heard by the Planning Board or approving grant applications for projects. Speakers will not be required to sign up in advance for this phase of the meeting, but will be asked to limit comments to five minutes. • The other phase, additionally at the front end of the council meeting, will allow citizens the chance to comment about items on the council meeting agenda. Speakers will be required to sign up before the meeting for this phase and will be asked to limit comments to five minutes. • And there will be the public comment phase near the end of the meeting for non-agenda items. Mayor Pro Tem Lonnie Davis said when a person approaches to make comments, “My personal opinion is that the mayor should be the last one to address that Please see CITY, page 3A

Seminar on flu strains coming to senior center The Vance County Senior Center will sponsor an information seminar on seasonal flu and the H1N1 flu on Thursday at 11:15 a.m. in the dining room. Wendy Smith, RN,

Vance-Granville Community College will offer a series of three seminars on epidemics, as people throughout the region and around the world seek to become more educated and prepared for possible influenza outbreaks. The seminars are offered by VGCC’s Arts and Sciences Division, and were conceived by biology instructor Phyllis (Button) Brady after she was inundated with questions and concerns about all

forms of the flu. “I thought it would be informative to teach about epidemics in general to increase our community’s awareness and preparedness,” Brady said. She took this idea to her fellow Arts and Sciences Division faculty members, who added their perspectives from other disciplines. Brady will lead the first seminar on scientific and environmental issues related to epidemics and preven-

Finally, English instructor James Powell conducts a seminar on the prevalence of epidemics in literature on Nov. 18. Each will be held from 1-3 p.m. in the VGCC Civic Center on the main campus. The series is open to the

Annual prostate screening scheduled at MPMC Three local physicians — Dr. Linga Vijaya, Dr. Adrian Ogle and Dr. Kirit Trivedi — in conjunction with Maria Parham Medical Center are once again coming together to offer a prostate cancer screening to local men. This free screening will be held Sept. 23 from 5-7 p.m. at the medical center. Participants are asked to enter the main entrance of the hospital and will receive further directions from there. Information from the American Cancer Society indicates that prostate cancer is

the second most common type of cancer found in American men (skin cancer is the most common). It is the second leading cause of cancer death in men, with lung cancer being the first. While one man in six will develop prostate cancer during his lifetime, only one man in 34 will die of the disease. The death rate for prostate cancer is going down, and the disease is being found earlier as well. Men over the age of 50 should see their doctor once a year for a complete medical

examination that includes a prostate checkup. AfricanAmerican men and men with a family history of prostate cancer should consider being screened beginning at age 45. Men in this age range are strongly encouraged to take part in this no-cost event. This is the 17th year Maria Parham Medical Center has offered this free screening. No appointments are necessary, but anyone seeking additional information about the screening may call Lee Anne Peoples at Maria Parham at 436-1116.

Board member Emeron Cash, noting he might be old-fashioned, asked about painting the lavatories pink for girls and blue for boys, so that it is obvious on sight which facility serves which gender. Hight said some subtle hues could be added through the board’s choice of tile or accents, but that current school design typically does not deviate from the general color scheme of the rest of the building in its choices for the lavatories. Hight and the board also discussed flooring in the school. A few areas will be carpeted — such as the music room, for acoustical purposes — while most will be covered with tile. Hight assured the board that Vance County was getting “the best carpet you can buy.” He said the product was sturdy, and though it might stain, it was virtually impervious to wear and other damage. “After 15 years,” he said, “it might ‘ugly’ out, but it won’t wear out.” Baseboards are likewise chosen for their sturdiness, in a color that will

stand up to repeated refinishing of the tiled floors. “Those floors are going to be waxed and stripped and waxed and stripped,” Hight said. “We want some color (in the baseboards), but we don’t want a real light baseboard.” Hight also addressed the board during its regular meeting, as part of the superintendent’s report. He said that the contractor reports work is actually a bit ahead of schedule on the buildings. The skeleton of the buildings is generally complete, and the walls are going up. “We’ve got the winter weather coming up and might lose a few days,” said Hight. “But we’re making good progress.” In other school-construction discussion: • Duke said he had visited the property, made his own measurements of a berm being created by earth-moving equipment, and doesn’t like what he sees. He said the slope in one area is 15 degrees as intended (and safely mowed), but where the property faces Rock Mill Road the slope is much steeper — greater than 20 degrees.

Jeanette Floyd (by Mary Cobbs); Winston Kerley (by Ronald Kinsley); and Stephanie Taylor (by White). Ellis and Cash have not yet made their appointments to the school-naming committee. • The board approved a narrow utility easement on the new school property to guarantee access and services to neighboring Mt. Carmel Church. • And, after an executive session, the board granted authority to attorney Jerry Stainback to negotiate on obtaining a narrow, but lengthy strip of property on the opposite side of Garrett Road from the school-construction site. Because of increased traffic on Garrett Road due to the new school, Shearin said, the North Carolina Department of Transportation is requiring the widening of Garrett in the vicinity of the new school and a redesign of the entry to Southern Vance High School further east down the road.

“As the pictures show, we’ve had erosion in it, and its unsafe to mow,” Duke said. Duke also objected to creating such a mound of dirt that blocks the view of the school from Rock Mill Road. Hight said he would check on the property to make sure the construction crew’s work will end with a 15-degree slope. He did say the earth-moving was necessary to create flat areas where needed, such as the playground, sidewalks and parking areas. “We’ve got 100 acres of property and I don’t see how we’re so cramped in that corner with no view,” Duke maintained. • Hartness said she took two friends to see the property on Sunday. “They were absolutely thrilled,” she said. • In response to a call for nominees to serve on a school-naming committee for the new building, five individuals have been tabbed so far: Cathy Wrenn (by Duke); Jane Fleming (by Hartness); ay yd r e Ev

At the same time, he said the bipartisan talks could continue even as his Finance panel begins its formal billdrafting session next week. The negotiators will meet again Tuesday. “It’s not just tomorrow or the next day,” said Baucus. “We’re going to keep working.” His small group of three Democrats and three Republicans has been doggedly laboring in hopes of finding a bipartisan path toward guaranteeing coverage for all and trying to control the rise in health care spending. The three Republicans — Mike Enzi of Wyoming, Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Olympia Snowe of Maine — are under intense pressure from leaders of their own party, some of whom have publicly dismissed Baucus’ framework as a Democrat’s plan. Baucus may not be able to get any of them to agree. But all three have invested much time and energy in the talks, and Baucus seems to have a chance of persuading at least Snowe.

that should be the discretion of the one chairing the meeting and said that may be something the city may want to put in the policy. O’Geary said, “I think if we start yielding minutes to someone that we’re going to create problems. I think we need to have it for each individual.” Evans added, “Many times when there is a public comment period, some of the speakers really don’t know that they’re not supposed to call, just say, an officer’s name.” O’Geary said, “I will address that,” with Evans noting “that’s a real easy way for some of our employees to get hated in this city.” O’Geary said, “We will not let personalities get involved.” Councilman Michael Inscoe was absent from Monday evening’s meeting, with Glover saying Inscoe had an unspecified emergency.

Daeke said, expressing appreciation to Griffin. Councilman Michael Rainey wanted the public to be made aware of their being required to sign up for the public comment period in advance, noting, “We don’t need to have somebody come in here after the council meeting has started and then rush up here and sign in.” Griffin said he and City Clerk Pam Glover would get together and talk about how the city can “operationalize this” so the public can be notified. Davis asked if he could divide his three or five minutes if he stepped forward to comment with one or two others. O’Geary said he would recognize one person at a time and call the others later, provided they are signed up to speak. “They could yield their three minutes to someone else, right?” Evans asked.

Davis called for this to be made part of the rules and Griffin said he would be glad to do so. And Davis added when the public comment phase is in progress, he does not believe council members should say “yea” or “nay” because, “We are not listening to the other side” and because the council does not need to give cause to the person speaking. Councilman Garry Daeke, who led the vote for the amended procedures, said, “We’re actually not suppressing public comment. In fact, we’re actually formalizing it in a better way.” “I think the policy is clear.

Fiat, Peugeot top list of Europe’s cleanest cars By AOIFE WHITE AP Business Writer

BRUSSELS — Fiat SpA and PSA Peugeot-Citroen SA were the only two car makers to hit a voluntary European Union target to reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions by last year, environmental activists said Tuesday. Transport & Environment praised Germany’s BMW AG for making the most progress in reducing CO2 emissions as it rolled out fuel-saving technology across its range of cars. Overall, the group warned that car makers are not moving fast enough toward a binding target to clean up their fleet of cars and urged them to accelerate efforts in coming years. The European car industry must reduce average emissions to 130 grams of carbon dioxide per (.62 mile) by 2015 or individual car makers will face fines. That target was set last year after car makers failed

to reach a voluntary goal to hit 140 grams per kilometer by 2008 — one that only Italy’s Fiat and France’s Peugeot met. Both car makers make many small, light cars that burn less fuel. Daimler AG, the maker of luxury Mercedes models, currently produces the most polluting range of cars in Europe, the activist group said. It must cut emissions by a quarter by 2015, as must Japanese car makers Nissan Motor Co., Mazda Motor Corp. and Suzuki Motor Corp. Transport spokesman Jos Dings said BMW — like Daimler, a producer of highend gas guzzlers — had moved swiftly to “play catch up” after it ranked as one of the most-polluting car makers two years ago. BMW is now ranked ninth on the list, ahead of Daimler at No. 14. “They (BMW) have introduced across the board their (fuel-efficient) technologies and that has been very effective,” he told reporters.

“It is really very much a technology question. If you look at the other side, the weight of vehicles hasn’t really changed.” Volkswagen AG, Europe’s biggest selling car maker, should follow BMW in introducing fuel-saving technology across its fleet to avoid being ranked at 12th place, Dings said. Dings said consumers do not seem to be swayed by climate change issues when choosing cars, despite record-high increases in fuel prices last summer, and aren’t yet picking greener cars over heavier, more fuelguzzling models. Regulation is the driving factor behind faster emissions cuts last year, he said. By 2020, all car makers in Europe will have to sell a range of cars that release an average of 95 grams per kilometer. Car sales fell 7 percent last year as the economy slowed. Cash-for-clunkers programs in several EU nations have boosted sales this year.

Financial Wire Survey points to rising British house prices LONDON (AP) — Further signs of a stabilization in Britain’s housing market emerged Tuesday with the news from an industry body that house prices rose in the three months to August for the first time in over two years. In its monthly survey the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) — a professional body for housing experts who provide services such as valuing homes — said around 11 percent more of its members reported an increase in house prices during the period rather than a fall. The increases were most evident in and around London. That was the most positive balance since May 2007 when nearly 25 percent more chartered surveyors reported a rise in prices. The last positive balance was July 2007’s 8 percent. In the three months to July, nearly 6 percent more chartered surveyors reported a fall in prices rather than a rise. As recently as March when the recession was at its most acute, 72 percent more chartered surveyors were reporting falling house prices rather than increases. The relatively rosy picture painted by the survey is consistent with other measures of the housing market in Britain, which is central to the wider economy’s prospects in the months ahead. RICS said the change in the news flow surrounding the British housing market may be encouraging potential sellers to put their properties up for sale. “This development should enable more potential purchasers to find desirable properties to buy but it could also present a challenge to the firmer trend in prices particularly when interest rates finally

begin to move upwards,” said Jeremy Leaf, a spokesperson at RICS. The RICS housing market survey is the longest running monthly survey of house prices in Britain, collecting data since January 1978 and is often cited by the Bank of England’s monetary policy committee at its monthly interest rate setting meetings.

The company also will pay a $2.4 million civil penalty. Prosecutors alleged Biovail paid thousands of physicians and others up to $1,000 apiece to induce them to prescribe or recommend Cardizem LA. The company is a subsidiary of Toronto-based Biovail Corp., which announced in May 2008 it had agreed to plead guilty and pay to settle the case.

Jersey drug firm to pay nearly $25M in kickbacks case

Canadian police bust up a Ponzi scheme

BOSTON (AP) — A New Jersey pharmaceuticals firm will pay nearly $25 million in criminal and civil fines after pleading guilty to federal charges that it made illegal payments to encourage doctors to prescribe a blood pressure drug. The U.S. attorney’s office in Boston announced Monday that Bridgewater-based Biovail Pharmaceuticals Inc. was sentenced to pay $22.2 million after pleading guilty to conspiracy and kickback charges.

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — A Canadian man was arrested and another was believed to be at large in Honduras after police said they broke up a Ponzi scheme that allegedly bilked thousands of investors worldwide out of at least $100 million. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police arrested Milowe Allen Brost, 55, and charged him with fraud on Sunday after a three-and-a-half year investigation. We’ll straighten everything out!

Fraud charges were also filed against another suspect — Gary Allen Sorenson, 66 — who is believed to be out of the country. RCMP Supt. Eric Mattson said Monday the two allegedly bilked 3,000 investors from Canada, the United States and overseas out of at least $100 million between 1999 and 2008. RCMP allege that the pair set up Syndicated Gold Depository SA, which was supposed to lend money to Merendon Mining Corp. Ltd., with the promise of a high rate of return and tax advantages.

Investors were lured into putting money into offshore shell companies that were marketed by Brost’s firms Capital Alternatives Inc. and The Institute for Financial Learning Group of Companies Inc., police said. The shell companies included Asset Trax Inc., Quatro Communications Corp., Rapid Express Corporation, Strategic Metals Corp. and Merendon Mining Inc. “Investors wished to make investments in companies — offshore — to get high rates of return and some tax advantages,” Mattson said. “Funds were

sent offshore but they did not end up with their returns and they did not get what they thought they were going to get.” Merendon Mining Corp.’s Web site lists Gary Sorenson as CEO. The site says the company is no longer based in Canada, but operates in Belize and has its headquarters in Honduras. That’s where police believe Sorenson now lives. “Canada doesn’t have an extradition treaty with Honduras so that certainly complicates the situation,” Mattson said.

Daily Meditation A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife. Proverbs 15:18

Our Opinion

A town in need of forgiveness Rarely does “our opinion” in this space come as an outgrowth of the Scripture above. Today is an exception, because that verse is a one-sentence answer to so many of Henderson’s problems. On the very same day that the FBI reports a 4-percent drop in the national murder and manslaughter rates — bring the U.S. murder rate to a “level not seen since the 1960s” — Henderson police are attempting to resolve this small city’s latest murder. On Sunday, a 29-year-old man was shot dead at a location on Water Street. He’s at least the second person to die violently — and willfully through the actions of others — in this town, this year. Unless our recount is wrong, there were three homicides in Henderson during 2008, and another six last year reported in Vance County outside the city limits. Complain as some residents might about poor law enforcement, officers are often only the first-responders to a catastrophe that has already happened. They can take suspects into custody, build cases against them, hope that prosecutor can make the charges stick, and pray that the convicted aren’t handed light sentences. Cops do try to lessen the murder rate by reducing the instances of other crimes — such as drug trafficking — that lead to violence. But police officers are not the primary teachers of the lesson above; that he who is slow to anger, appeaseth strife. That lesson begins at home. And in church. And our neighborhoods. And in our houses of primary education, though public schools these days cannot teach directly from the book of Proverbs. Certainly the Bible contains its share of violence. Particularly after the birth of the savior, it also preaches love, kindness and forgiveness. Those are three things this community needs in larger portions.

Quotable “Crystal was an amazing symbol of workers standing up in the South against overwhelming odds — Crystal Sutton and standing up and winning. The fact that Crystal was a woman in the ’70s, leading a struggle of thousands of other textile workers against very powerful, virulently anti-union mill companies, inspired a whole generation of people — of women workers, workers of color and white workers.” — Bruce Raynor, president of Workers United and executive vice president of the Service Employees International Union, who worked with Crystal Lee Sutton to organize the Stevens plants. In 1974, the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union won the right to represent 3,000 employees at seven Roanoke Rapids plants. “Portraying Crystal Lee Sutton in ‘Norma Rae,’ however loosely based, not only elevated me as an actress, but as a human being,” — Actress Sally Field, whose title character in the film was based Sutton’s efforts to unionize textile mills.

It was just two words. “You lie!” Two words. Not even curse words. But the where and the when made those two words significant. “You lie!” It was screamed from the floor of Congress, by an elected official of the state of South Carolina, and aimed at the president of the United States. “You lie!” In the history of American politics, no one could recall a similar act. Not with all the fudged truths that have been told by American presidents. Not with George W. Bush and the Iraq war, not with Bill Clinton and his private life, not with Ronald Reagan and Iran-Contra, not with Richard Nixon and Watergate. Yet somehow last week, during a speech on, of all things, health care, Joe Wilson, a Republican Congressman from South Carolina, was unable to control himself. He yelled those two words loudly enough to be heard in the chamber, on national TV, and around the world. And in so doing, he lowered the bar of American behavior another few feet. Never mind that Wilson was incorrect. The president had said that under his health care bill, the benefits would

not apply to illegal immigrants — and they would not. The bills before Congress declare that. You could argue that illegal immigrants still could buy insurance or sneak through, but that Mitch is hardly Albom supports a liar charge, Tribune Media does it? Services Never mind that. Never mind that Wilson apologized the next day. Something bigger was at work.

A society of haters Hate breeds hate, anger breeds anger, and I have been arguing in this space for years now that the American discourse — fueled by the Internet, talk radio and cable TV — has turned so mean it has nowhere to go but get meaner. Little wonder that immediately after Wilson’s unforgivable outburst, it was being justified by certain Republicans not because it was correct, but because Democrats had been

equally insulting to former president Bush. Hate breeds hate, and there is money and fame in yelling louder and angrier. You don’t get on TV by asking thoughtful questions at a town hall meeting, but you sure can get there if you curse, holler and scream like a captured banshee. Come to think of it, that applies to TV hosts as well. With everyone yelling, accusing, even making death threats in anonymous posts, is it any surprise that eventually that behavior finds its way into a room with the president? We were abhorred when an Iraqi journalist threw his shoes at Bush. We called it barbaric, typical of a country hopelessly behind us on the civility scale. Where does Wilson rank on that scale? Clearly near the bottom. But why did he yell those two words? Why was that speech and this president the very moment that a veteran politician like Wilson could no longer control himself?

The right to lead I have a theory. For all the fawning popularity Obama enjoys in certain circles, he is equally vilified in others. Those who don’t like him truly don’t like him. And there seems to

be an element in this country that doesn’t want to accept him as the actual president. From the kooks hollering about his birth certificate to the paranoids insisting he is a closet Muslim, there are people who just don’t want this guy in that office. The fact that he is “halfblack” is not wasted on them, either. Whether they say it or not, their actions speak for themselves. Nobody can use the N-word in public anymore. But they can use socialist, anarchist, alien. And somehow it’s now acceptable to deem a guy who has been in office barely eight months unfit and unworthy. It’s acceptable to suggest he’s taking us straight to Hell. It’s acceptable to yell “You lie!” at the commander in chief in a place where it has never been yelled before. Hate breeds hate. Two days ago, I boarded a plane heading for New York City. As we descended over the Manhattan skyline, I realized it was Sept. 11. I thought back to the emotions that followed that day eight years ago, a feeling of unity, a feeling a patriotism, a feeling that no enemy, no matter how evil or determined, could ever tear us apart. The enemy doesn’t have to. The way we are going, we’ll do it ourselves.

Letters to the Editor D.C. needs your dollars To the editor:

Talk out differences on health care, don’t shout them out I have nothing against passion in politics. But when defenders of Rep. Joe Wilson’s interruption of President Obama’s health care speech claim “free speech” and “double standards,” they only reveal their own misguided manners and political tone-deafness. Wilson, a South Carolina Republican, made history by shouting, “You lie!” during Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress. That’s OK with a sadly sizeable number of onlookers. They even offer arguments that sound remarkably alike, as if they were coached by the same talk radio hosts and cable TV news shows. “Why is it regrettable to express a sentiment, thought, idea, feeling, etc.?” said one fairly typical example in response to a blog posting. “I thought free speech was as American as apple pie and baseball.” “The Democrats booed during George Bush’s State of the Union speech in 2005 and no media commented,” said another blog reader. “You can’t have it both ways!” True. In fact, Republicans jeered President Bill Clinton so sharply during one of his addresses that he departed from his text to respond like a standup comedian facing hecklers on open-mike night. Good theater, one might argue, if it is kept within limits. The famously formal British Parliament raises raucous audience reactions to an art form, a virtual symphony of tut-tut booing and hear-hear cheering during their regular Prime Minister’s Questions. But, we Yanks can be a more feisty bunch. Open the door to outbursts of individual approval, disapproval and advice like Wilson’s rude shout of “You lie!” during Obama’s speech and we’ll

have a hard time getting that beast back into the barn. This is our Congress, after all, not a caged wrestling match. I don’t care how many people have a hard time telling the difference. Calling the president a liar to his face during a formal address to Congress crosses lines I don’t think most Americans want to cross. For a member to the Clarence interrupt nation’s comPage mander-inchief during Tribune Media an address Services to Congress disrespects the office itself and the nation for which it stands. It’s also bad manners. We Americans believe in free speech, but not when that speech interrupts the free speech of others. Perhaps some folks are confused by an overexposure to noisy TV and radio talk shows. I confess to participating in some of them, after warning my own son, “Do not try this at home.” Wilson apologized after prodding from Republican leaders, he says. Some Democrats called for his censure, too, but I think he’s already getting enough punishment back home. Rob Miller, a Marine captain and Iraq war veteran who is Wilson’s Democratic opponent for reelection, was reported to have raised a half-million dollars in the first 24 hours after Wilson’s outburst. He should send Wilson a thank you card. And what about the issue Wilson raised? Did Obama lie when he said Democratic healthcare legislation would not extend

coverage to illegal immigrants? By the letter of the proposed law as written, Obama is right. The House bill specifically bans illegal immigrants from receiving federal subsidies to purchase insurance. Still, conservative critics argue that there are not enough safeguards to prevent some illegal immigrants from slipping through. A Congressional Research Service report, for example, found that some illegal immigrants would not be prohibited from purchasing insurance on their own through the health insurance exchanges that would be established by the bill. However, some conservative commentators have confused the public by ignoring that the bill would require immigrants to use their own money to purchase insurance, just as they can now. Bottom line, the report says, health reform “leaves in place the status quo” and “certainly does not provide any new benefits particularly for illegal immigrants.” Let’s ask ourselves: Do we want to discourage illegal workers from buying their own medical insurance? Or would we prefer to add their numbers to those for whom taxpayers already are providing health care through hospital emergency rooms? That’s a subject worth debating, and the debate goes on. House Democrats oppose making the rules so strict that people who should be eligible are denied coverage. Opponents are concerned that some undocumented immigrants might slip through a loophole such as being the parents of children who are citizens because they were born here. Either way, these are technical details. They need to be talked out, not shouted out. E-mail Clarence Page at cpage@tribune.com.

Could this be the reason that Washington is so desperate to pass a health care bill? Consider that over the course of the past decade, how many jobs have been lost to foreign countries and how much revenue has the government has lost a result? The good ol’ boys are finding themselves a little short on cash and if they can coerce every taxpaying American into believing that they can now provide you health care for a small fee each month it will greatly increase their cash flow. Caution, think for yourself here. It sounds good, but see if you can think of one thing, just one, that the government at any level in this country has promised that would be a benefit for you that isn’t costing you out the yingyang for today. I’d like to know what it was. I believe the government has ulterior motives for your having health care, one being the one having just been discussed and the other, it has it hands deep into the drug manufacturing industry. In a book published by Ross Perot in the early ’90s he stated that the largest conglomeration of drug manufacturing plants in the world were located on the island of Puerto Rico. The United States government owns Puerto Rico just like I own my pickup truck. I wish I had the knowledge to research this because I’d like to know the answer myself. I do know that the drug facilities in Research Triangle Park are just that research and development facilities they do not manufacture drugs. Advice from the man I trusted more than anyone I have ever met, my father. He said, “Son, anytime you decide to pay someone else to do for you what you should do for yourself, one of two things will always happen. The price will get so high you can’t afford it, or the service will become so slouchy you can’t stand it. There are no exceptions to that rule!” I don’t want anything the government has. Just keep your hands out of my pocket and your nose out of my business. Wayne Boyd, Henderson

Oxford Walmart Supercenter set to open Wednesday By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer

OXFORD — The grand opening of the Walmart Supercenter is set for 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, with the megastore to start doing business 30 minutes later. The supercenter is located at the Shoppes at Oxford, which is taking shape off U.S. 15 near the interchange with Interstate 85. The supercenter will have approximately 300 associates, including 160 new jobs, and $20,000 in grants will be given to local organizations in recognition of Wednesday’s ceremony. The supercenter’s hours will be from 6 a.m. to midnight daily. The new Walmart will replace the box-like discount store at the Granville Corners shopping center at Industry Drive, but there remains the question of who will fill the soon-to-be vacant location. Oxford Mayor Al Woodlief at the Sept. 8 City Commission meeting said Walmart found a tenant for the Granville Corners location, which prompted some applause from the audience. Woodlief, in brief remarks at the commission meeting, said his information came from Walmart. The Dispatch attempted to obtain additional details from Walmart, whose corporate communications office referred questions to Chris Neeley, a corporate spokesman for the Carolinas. Neeley did not return the Dispatch’s phone message requesting comment. The landlord, Marty Graff, did not respond to a Dispatch phone message left with his number, either. The Walmart at Granville Corners dates back to 1991. The Planning Board in January 2007 gave the O.K. to a South Carolina-based

Warren to dispose of historic properties Surplus properties, one with late-1700s structure, to be sold by schools

Grants of $20,000 from the Walmart Foundation will be presented at the grand-opening celebration of the Oxford Walmart Supercenter. Seven local organizations will each receive grants to support programs serving the community. They are: • Area Congregations in Ministry (ACIM). • Central Children’s Home of North Carolina. • Oxford Fire Department. • Oxford Police Department. • Granville County Senior Services. • The Masonic Home for Children. • The Richard H. Thornton Library.

WARRENTON — In their regular monthly meeting on Monday, Warren County commissioners approved a request from Warren County Schools Superintendent Ray Spain to dispose of four items of surplus public school property. County Attorney Karlene Turrentine recommended that the transfer require that the property be put to public use, with the possibility of reverting to the county in the future. If those conditions are not met, she recommended that the property be sold through a process of sealed bids.

from board Chairman Barry Richardson, Frances Sondgeroth said that her 14-year-old son is an avid skate boarder. When he asked his parents for a skate board ramp, “we thought it should be accessible to more than one child,” Sondgeroth said. “I hope they wear it out.” On a split vote, the commissioners awarded a bid to Andrews Ford for the purchase of nine Crown Victoria Fords and one Ford Edge at a total cost of $220,665.47. Commissioners Bill Davis expressed concern about whether the bid prices reflected the state contract prices. He and Commissioner U. S. Ross voted against the motion, requiring Richardson to vote Aye to break the tie. In the 2009 Appropriations Act, the N.C. General Assembly directed that responsibility for Child Support Enforcement shift from the state to counties beginning July 1, 2010. After looking at several alternatives for administering the program, Warren County Manage Linda Worth recommended that the local CSE office be consolidated into the Warren County Department of Social Services. The commissioners approved the recommendation. The commissioners approved a funding agreement that directs coordination between the Warren County Department of Social Services and the Department of Aging in providing services for senior citizens under a Home &

Community Care Block Grant for Older Adults. The commissioners approved a request from the Churchill Five Forks Volunteer Fire Department to purchase two fire trucks. A grant application has been submitted for $50,000 to make the down payment. The loan will total $270,000. Andrew Riggleman of Norlina requested Board authority to acquire tax foreclosed property at 1722 Tower Road, Warrenton, by paying back taxes and attorney fees in the amount of $7,792.11. Commissioner Davis moved to approve the request, but the motion died for lack of a second. The commissioners then voted to place the property up for sale, with Davis voting Nay. In other actions, the commissioners: • Adopted a resolution endorsing the widening of U.S. 401. • Approved an increase equivalent to $5,000 of his annual salary for Public Works Director Marshall Brothers for serving in a dual capacity as Interim Animal Control Director. The cost to the county will be $1,993.61 for salary and benefits for the period of

Commissioner Davis pointed out that the county does not provide street lights elsewhere. Commissioner Ross voted against the denial. • The commissioners designated September as Senior Center Month, asking citizens to recognize the special contributions of senior center participants, staff and volunteers.

Patriots rally, stun Bills 25-24 By BARRY WILNER AP Football Writer

New England’s Benjamin Watson (84) is congratulated by Stephen Neal after scoring the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter of Monday’s game.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Back on center stage, Tom Brady acted like, well, the NFL’s biggest star. It seemed to take forever, though. A year after being sidelined with torn knee ligaments, Brady resembled a rusty game manager more than the invincible record-setting quarterback who guided the Patriots to a perfect 2007 regular season. Yet, he threw two touchdown passes in the final 2:06 as New England beat the Buffalo Bills 25-24 on

Monday night. When the spotlight hit, Brady lived up to the advance billing. “We have a real competitive locker room, a real competitive team,” Brady said. “When you’re in a situation like we were, it’s when you really have to step it up. It takes every guy on the field to step it up. Hopefully, we will continue to do that.” But Brady needed help in the form of Leodis McKelvin’s fumble on a kickoff return after the Patriots pulled within five points. Placekicker Stephen Gost-

Vanguards fall in home debut By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor

Vance-Granville played its first volleyball game in Henderson Monday as the Vanguards kicked off their home opener of their inaugural season at the Aycock Complex. The Vanguards were defeated in three sets by Catawba Valley Community College (25-14, 25-5, 25-16). VGCC is now 1-3 in their first season. They won their first game Saturday at Rockingham Community College — a hardfought, five-set victory. Vanguard coach Ellis Crews has had about three months to recruit and practice with the college’s first team.

“Five of the kids have never seen a volleyball game before, so to be able to compete like we’re doing, I think it’s just wonderful,” said Crews. “These ladies are bread-winners. They have to be full-time (students) to be able to play. They got kids, they got jobs, and they have to practice and travel to play the game. So I just think that’s incredible.” Crews said his squad has yet to have many practices, as “various obstacles” have prevented them from getting together very much as a team. “We’re actually practicing as we play,” he said. After losing a relatively competitive first set 25-14, the

Southern soccer ties with Louisburg, 2-2 From STAFF REPORTS

Louisburg won the first half, but Southern Vance took the second. After the Warriors took a 2-0 lead into halftime, the Raiders regrouped with two of their own, shutting out Louisburg in the second half of Monday’s 2-2 tie. “It was a good game, both teams played really hard,” said Raider coach Mike Rotolo. “I’m really proud of my guys for hanging in there.”

Southern did all of its scoring in the last 20 minutes. Joel Lopez-Hernandez got the Raiders on the board first with his goal off a Marco Hernandez assist. With six minutes to go, Humberto Salazar tied it up, knocking it in after the ball ping-ponged around the crowd gathered near the goal. Former Northern Carolina 2A Conference rival Bunn will come to Henderson to play the Raiders on Wednesday at 6 p.m.

CHARLOTTE — Jake Delhomme is still Carolina’s starter — even after 11 turnovers in two games. He does have a new backup, however, with the arrival of A.J. Feeley to replace the injured Josh McCown. Coach John Fox defended Delhomme on Monday, saying his beleaguered quarterback’s status “hasn’t changed” a day after he threw four interceptions and lost a fumble in the Panthers’ 38-10 loss to Philadelphia. Pressured all game, but also making poor throws and decisions, Delhomme nearly matched his six-turnover performance in Carolina’s blowout playoff loss to Arizona in January. His turnovers Sunday led to 24 Eagles points, and Fox pulled him after he threw consecutive interceptions in the third quarter. In Carolina’s last 22 possessions against the Cardinals and Eagles, Delhomme has thrown nine interceptions and lost two fumbles. Yet, Delhomme will start next week at Atlanta. “It’s like Tiger Woods doesn’t win every tournament. (Roger) Federer doesn’t win every tournament,” Fox said. “There’s a lot of people out there that practice and get paid, too.” Delhomme is soon to have a new teammate. Feeley, a free agent who was cut by the Eagles earlier this month, agreed to a contract and was on his way to Charlotte late Monday. He’ll replace Josh McCown, who was headed to injured reserve after injuring his left foot and knee in relief of Delhomme Sunday. McCown was in a protective boot Monday and was using a crutch as Delhomme said he “took his medicine” in a film session that had to resemble a horror flick. “Did I beat myself up last night? Absolutely. But it happens. That’s just how this business is,” Delhomme said. “That’s why these seats are so precious. There are only 32 of us in the world.” Delhomme, who was booed unmercifully by the home fans Sunday, still has a seat at that table. Three months after his playoff debacle, the Panthers gave the 34-year-old Delhomme a new five-year, $42.5 million contract. It immediately freed up needed salary-cap space this year, but it also included $20 million in guaranteed money. The Panthers then didn’t sign another QB and Delhomme had no serious competition in training camp. Please see DELHOMME, page 3B

Two-minute drill Local Sports Local AAU teams fall in openers on the road The Henderson Panthers 12U and Carolina Blackhawks 10U AAU football teams were defeated by Petersburg in their season opener in Orange County, Virginia this weekend. The Blackhawks lost 20-18. Corey Twitty had two touchdown rushes of 86 and 54 yards. Shamond Lyons also had two long touchdown runs, but one was called back for holding. Defensively, the Blackhawks were led by Keontae Brodie, Antonio Cooper, Sedarius Boyd, Brandon Hayes, Thaddius Hardin, Jordan Hawkins and Sincere Hargrove, as well as Twitty and Lyons. “The 8- and 9-year-olds did a great job with only 11 players and no reserves,” said coach Joe Brodie. Each player played the full four quarters. The 12U team was defeated 28-0. “The Petersburg team was huge and just outplayed us,” said Brodie. Brodie said quarterback Timothy Terry was “fearless” in his performance in the game, and called him a “diamond in the rough.” The teams will next play against the Manassas Hokies in Manassas, Va. Parents with kids aged 8-12 interested in playing AAU football should contact Brodie at (252) 4336426. Serious inquiries only.

Minor Leagues Bulls, Yankees to meet again in finals As the Durham Bulls prepare for their third consecutive trip to the Governors’ Cup Finals, they only need to look to last season for their motivation. The Bulls lost the series 3-1, including a 20-2 romp by the Yankees in Game Four at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Durham will look to avenge that loss to Scranton-Wilkes Barre beginning with Game One on Tuesday at 7:05 p.m. at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

College Football O’Brien: Wolfpack offense making progress RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina State took a giant step forward last week by putting 65 points on the scoreboard. The opponent may have been a Football Championship Subdivision team, but that didn’t stop coach Tom O’Brien from seeing improvement beyond the boxscore. “You can tell if a guy’s in a good blocking position or good tackling position or backpedaling properly,” O’Brien said Monday. “That’s why we talk all the time, it doesn’t matter what it says on the jersey or the helmet, you have to respect the game and play the game.” The Wolfpack’s offense — neutralized during a season-opening 7-3 loss to South Carolina — is feeling much more confident after a 65-7 rout of Murray State last week. Now comes Gardner-Webb, another team from the FCS, which visits Raleigh on Saturday night. N.C. State (1-1) found the end zone just 87 seconds in against the Racers and led 45-0 at halftime, giving the impression that the offense may have found its groove. Two running backs scored three touchdowns each, and dropped passes — a critical part of the loss to South Carolina — were almost nonexistent. “We had to get better pass protection, we had to get better at throwing and catching, doing a lot of things,” O’Brien said. “We did (get better). From a technical standpoint, we were in a good position, running routes the right way, and the quarterback was throwing the ball on time.” Wilson ran his school-record streak to passes without an interception to 293. Among college quarterbacks, he trails only Kentucky’s Andre Woodson, who threw 325 passes without an interception in 2006 and 2007.

UNC’s young offense lagging behind defense By AARON BEARD AP Sports Writer

CHAPEL HILL — While No. 24 North Carolina’s defense has lived up to its preseason billing, unfortunately, so too has the Tar Heels’ uncertain offense. Two games into the season, North Carolina’s defense has allowed just 16 points and ranks among the nation’s best in several categories. The unit is having to carry more than its share of the burden, though, while a young offense fights through poor execution, dropped passes and bad blocking. “Everybody knows our defense is doing an amazing job,” quarterback T.J. Yates said Monday. “It’s definitely something you know on the sideline, that your defense is playing hard. Some people let you know about it, too, on the sideline. That’s not a bad thing. You’ve kind of got to know that you’ve got to hold up your end of the bargain.” That relationship was clearly on display during the weekend at Connecticut. North Carolina (2-0) couldn’t find any room to run and didn’t score a point until the fourth quarter. But the defense held the Huskies to just 196 yards to keep the Tar Heels close until the offense finally did enough to win.

North Carolina quarterback T.J. Yates is sacked by Connecticut's Jesse Joseph (91) and Greg Lloyd (95) during the first half of Saturday’s game in East Hartford, Conn. Heading into this weekend’s game against instate rival East Carolina, the Tar Heels rank sixth nationally in pass efficiency defense, seventh nationally in total defense (174.5 yards) and 14th nationally in rushing defense (51 yards). The Tar Heels have also held opponents to 4-for-29 on third-down conversions, have racked up 19 tackles for losses and forced six turnovers. It’s been what most expected with nine returning starters from a unit that had a knack for forcing turnovers last year. As for the offense, Yates is throwing to an unproven group of receivers charged with

replacing the production lost when Hakeem Nicks, Brandon Tate and Brooks Foster became NFL draft picks. The running game that looked smooth against Football Championship Subdivision opponent The Citadel to start the year couldn’t move the ball against the Huskies, finishing with just 35 yards — with most of that coming in the final quarter when the Tar Heels finally started moving the ball. It wasn’t pretty, as evidenced by the Tar Heels dropping five spots in this week’s AP Top 25 poll despite the win. “Sometimes the maturity of your football team gets tested in games like

that,” coach Butch Davis said. “It’s one of the best examples that I’ve seen where when things are going wrong, the defense is like ’We’ve got them. We’ll keep stopping them.’ And nobody was pointing fingers at anybody.” The receiving corps is still a question mark. Greg Little had eight catches for just 45 yards against the Huskies, while freshman Erik Highsmith came through with four catches and 59 yards. But the Tar Heels might be without Zack Pianalto, who dislocated his right foot while celebrating after catching the tying touchdown pass to finish with seven catches for 87 yards. The offense’s best asset is probably Yates’ experience under center. He started his entire freshman year and played in seven games last year despite being sidelined with a broken ankle. He also came through to direct the 13-play, 76-yard TD drive to tie it with 2:36 left. “Offensively, their numbers are not as impressive as they are from a defensive standpoint,” East Carolina coach Skip Holtz said. “I know that T.J. Yates is one of the most impressive quarterbacks I’ve seen since I’ve been here. ... I know they’re struggling a little bit offensively, but at this point, it certainly isn’t because of him.”

Steelers star Polamalu doesn’t need knee surgery By ALAN ROBINSON AP Sports Writer

PITTSBURGH — This might be the first time Troy Polamalu is happy to hear that an injury will keep him out from three to six weeks. Polamalu realizes his injury could be much worse. Maybe even Brian Urlacher-like worse. The two-time All-Pro safety doesn’t need surgery to repair the tear in his left medical collateral ligament that occurred during a scramble for the ball on a blocked-field goal attempt Thursday against Tennessee. Coach Mike Tomlin’s preliminary estimate of how long Polamalu will be out also hasn’t changed. “Regarding an injury to the knee, this is the best-case scenario,” Polamalu said as the Steelers returned to practice on Monday. “There’s no question that I’m very blessed that this scenario has come about rather than any worse scenario.” For now, Polamalu will rest, and hope there are no complications in his recovery — just as there weren’t when he needed only three weeks to re-

turn from a sprained left knee in 2007. Still, Polamalu’s injury means the Steelers (1-0) and Bears (0-1) will be without two of the NFL’s best defensive players Sunday in Chicago. Urlacher dislocated his right wrist Sunday night against Green Bay and is out for the season. No matter how long Polamalu is sidelined, his absence will be a setback for what was the NFL’s best defense the last two seasons. Polamalu’s ability to adjust positions from play to play, his speed and his ability to be a pass rusher and pass defender makes him one of the NFL’s most versatile players. “We’re going to miss him. There’s only one Troy, not just on this team but in the whole NFL,” Steelers safety Ryan Clark said. “There’s plays he can make that nobody else can make. I would be foolish to say to you guys (reporters) it won’t be different without him, and you guys would be just as foolish to print it.” Polamalu was injured when Titans tight end Alge Crumpler fell on him after Aaron Smith

blocked a Rob Bironas field-goal attempt in the second quarter. Asked if it was normal to be on special teams, Polamalu said, “Our defense is always (out on a field goal attempt), our whole defense.” Polamalu will be replaced by Tyrone Carter, who is in his ninth season and sixth with Pittsburgh, partly because he can fill in at both safety positions. Carter made five starts in 2007 when Polamalu last hurt his knee. Outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley will be surprised if defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau makes numerous changes to adjust to being without Polamalu, who had six tackles and an intercep-

tion in less than a half against Tennessee. “I think we’ll continue to do what we’ve been doing,” Woodley said. “We don’t want to change up everything because then we’re not that same physical defense that we’ve always been. Troy’s definitely a good player, and we’ve lost a good player for a few weeks, but the guy behind him is going to step up and do an excellent job as well.” Even if Polamalu sits out only three games, he’ll miss playing against the Bears (0-1), the 2008 AFC West champion Chargers, plus AFC Central rival Cincinnati (0-1). “Troy’s the best safety in football and, when you lose a guy like that, it’s hard,” Clark said.

Bears lose Urlacher for season

who can do something like that.” The arrival of Pro Bowl quarterback Jay Cutler sent expectations in Chicago soaring in the offseason, though he threw four interceptions and looked average at best in the loss. Now the Bears are without the longtime face of the franchise and a stalwart defender in a division with top-tier running backs in Grant and Vikings star Adrian Peterson along with elite quarterbacks such as Rodgers and Minnesota’s Brett Favre. The 31-year-old Urlacher, a six-time Pro Bowler, appeared to be in better

shape after being limited by a bad back and neck the past two years. He looked like his old self midway through the first quarter when he flattened Rodgers just as the quarterback released a pass downfield that a leaping Donald Driver juggled and dropped. Later, with about four minutes left in the quarter, Urlacher took down Grant for one of his three tackles and Packers guard Josh Sitton landed on him. Urlacher got up and briefly shook his wrist before walking away with what looked like nothing more than a minor injury. “No one knew the severity of it,” linebacker Lance Briggs said. “We knew that it had to be checked out. Now we know.” Smith dismissed the idea of moving Briggs to the middle, meaning the job is Hillenmeyer’s for now. He also did not rule out bringing in help from the outside, which they did with Shaw, a third-year pro out of Penn State. Veterans like former NFL Defensive Player of the Year Derrick Brooks and Zach Thomas, who was cut by Kansas City this month, are still out there, too. The 36-year-old Brooks, who was cut by Tampa Bay in February, has a good relationship with Smith dating to his days on the Buccaneers’ staff. “Derrick’s been a great player for a long time in the league,” Smith said before the Bears announced they signed Shaw. Chicago could also be short-handed in other areas, too, with Pittsburgh coming to town on Sunday.

offense flopped, the Bills made plenty of big plays. Trent Edwards outperformed Brady for much of the game and threw for two scores. A 10-yard screen pass TD to Fred Jackson put Buffalo ahead 24-13 with 5:32 to go — even though its new spotlight-grabber, Terrell Owens, barely caused a ripple. Owens had two catches for 46 yards. When the offense wasn’t doing the damage, defensive end Aaron Schobel was rambling 26 yards with an interception for a first-half TD. Still, these are the Patriots, who have not lost a regular-season game with Brady at quarterback since Dec. 10, 2006. And they still have all those threats in the passing game, from Randy Moss (12 catches, 141 yards) to Wes Welker (12, 93) to

tight end Watson (6, 77, two TDs). Although Brady had those impressive stats, he never looked deep and struggled to convert key plays until the final moments. Perhaps that big hit he took on his shoulder from Albert Haynesworth 2 1/2 weeks ago limited Brady. And maybe his team was uncomfortable in the throwback red uniforms or being introduced as the Boston Patriots for the first of the NFL’s tribute games to the old AFL. Something wasn’t right in Foxborough — until the end. “It has nothing to do with his layoff,” Moss said. “I think it’s just first-game jitters. I’m not making an excuse, we just had to settle down and get to playing football the way we know how.”

Garcia back with the Eagles By ROB MAADDI AP Sports Writer

PHILADELPHIA — Jeff Garcia, the NFL’s version of Rocky Balboa, is back with the Philadelphia Eagles. The team has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with Garcia, a 10-year veteran who played for Philadelphia in 2006 and went 6-2 in eight starts — including the playoffs — while McNabb was injured. The Eagles needed a backup quarterback in case McNabb, who suffered a broken rib in Philadelphia’s 38-10 win over Carolina in the season opener, is not able to play this week against the New Orleans Saints. Third-year pro Kevin Kolb filled in for McNabb and will start if McNabb is out, coach Andy Reid said. “Whether it’s a week or two weeks or the entire season, I’m excited about the opportunity,” Garcia said in a conference call. “As far as a team I can go to and blend right in, this is the team for me to do that.” Garcia, who was signed by Oakland in the offseason to push JaMarcus Russell and serve as a mentor to the former No. 1 overall draft pick, was released by the Raiders on Sept. 5 after playing little in the preseason. He said he could’ve stayed with Oakland, but didn’t think it was the right fit. But he also wasn’t ready to call it a career. “I didn’t want it to be over,” Garcia said. “I feel there’s a lot of quality football left in me.” A four-time Pro Bowl selection, Garcia played well in his previous stint with the Eagles three seasons ago, throwing 11 touchdown passes against two interceptions in eight starts. In the process, he also became very popular with fans. “I know the circumstances are different,” Garcia said. “I’m OK with whatever helps the team.” Philadelphia’s other quarterback, Michael Vick,

is not eligible this week because he was suspended for the first two regularseason games as the last part of the NFL’s penalty for his role in a dogfighting ring. “We’re lucky Jeff was available,” Reid said on his weekly radio show. “He’s someone who knows this offense and has been very successful in this offense. He can be a positive influence on Kevin Kolb.” The 39-year-old Garcia began his career with San Francisco in 1999. He replaced Hall of Fame QB Steve Young, put up big passing numbers with Terrell Owens as his main target and led the 49ers to two playoff appearances in his first three seasons as a full-time starter. Garcia’s career took a downward turn after he left the rebuilding 49ers in 2004. He spent forgettable seasons with Cleveland and Detroit before rejuvenating his career in Philadelphia in ’06. Garcia stepped in when McNabb tore his ACL, led the Eagles to a 5-1 record, an NFC East title and a playoff win over the New York Giants. His final game with Philadelphia was a loss at New Orleans in the divisional playoffs. In his brief time with the Eagles, Garcia completely won over the tough Philly fans with his fiery personality and win-at-allcosts attitude. A company made up T-shirts featuring Garcia with his fists up in a boxer’s stance above the caption: “A Fighter Fights.” The Eagles didn’t re-sign Garcia after that season and he went to Tampa Bay. Garcia led the Buccaneers to the NFC South title in 2007 and earned a trip to Hawaii. Garcia has thrown for 25,537 yards, 161 touchdowns and 83 interceptions in 124 career games. He’s completed 61.6 percent of his passes and has a QB rating of 87.5. Garcia is 58-58 as a starter. McNabb, Vick and Garcia have been to a combined 12 Pro Bowls.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Finally healthy after two years, Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher launched his regular season by making a run at Aaron Rodgers, lowering his shoulder and plowing over the Packers quarterback in the first quarter. His 10th season was off to a good start. And then, it was over. Chicago’s star linebacker went on injured reserve after having surgery Monday to repair a dislocated right wrist and will not be back this season, a major blow for a team with high expectations. There was no immediate word from Urlacher other than a text message to the Chicago Tribune that said simply: “season is over.” But coach Lovie Smith said Urlacher clearly was disappointed. “He had put himself in position to have an outstanding year,” Smith said. “He was playing well in the game before he went down with the injury. Even after the injury to his hand, the competitor in him wanted to continue to play. It’s a tough break. There’s no way around it, but he’s been injured before and he’s come back before.” With Urlacher out, Hunter Hillenmeyer is expected to start at middle linebacker this week when the Bears host defending champion Pittsburgh. Chicago also signed linebacker Tim Shaw, who got cut by Jacksonville this month, to a one-year deal on Monday. The injury to Urlacher

occurred in the first quarter of Sunday night’s 21-15 loss at Green Bay, though it was not clear when. Urlacher briefly shook his wrist after tackling Packers running back Ryan Grant late in the period, though Smith said he wasn’t sure when it happened. Urlacher played in the second quarter, but left on the Packers’ first drive of the second half. “Talk about a guy that’s a great leader,” said Hillenmeyer, who replaced Urlacher on Sunday. “First, he plays an entire half of football with a dislocated wrist. I don’t think there’s many people

RALLY, from page 1B kowski, of all people, recovered at the Buffalo 31. Brady needed three plays before hitting Benjamin Watson over the middle for the decisive 16-yard touchdown with 50 seconds to go. Just 1:16 earlier, he found Watson on a similar play for an 18-yard score. It was vintage Brady, who threw for a record 50 TDs two years ago in leading New England to a perfect record. “Two-minute drives always are fun for a quarterback,” Brady said. “Spread it out, the pass rush gets a little tired, you get a feel for the coverage, you just have to be patient. “I’m glad it’s over, glad we are moving on, got a win, and we’ll learn from it.” That unbeaten season was spoiled in Brady’s

last full game that counted, the February 2008 Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants. He was hurt in last season’s opener. Now he’s back, although for much of the game he and the Patriots played conservatively, even passively. Indeed, Buffalo seemed ready to break an 11-game losing streak against New England and win for the first time in Gillette Stadium. Then came the late fireworks, demonstrating that Tom Terrific hasn’t lost his touch. “That’s not how we drew it up, but I’ll take it,” Brady said. “We did a lot of things poorly but we got the win.” Buffalo did a lot of things well, but got a shocking loss. Coming off a 1-4 preseason in which the

He’s also been with Miami and San Diego. But while Feeley may eventually replace Delhomme, several teammates rushed to their teammate’s defense Monday. “Jake, we didn’t give him a chance,” left tackle Jordan Gross said. Added center Ryan Kalil: “In all reality, it’s kind of tough for him to make plays when he’s got guys in his face.” The offensive line, with all five starters returning from last season, was considered Carolina’s strength coming into the season. But it crumbled against the Eagles’ relentless blitzing, which

Fox even hinted Carolina’s more freewheeling style hurt Delhomme. His sack and fumble that was returned for a touchdown and one of his interceptions came on screen pass calls. “A couple of those

third-and-longs I wish we had run our patented draw instead of screens,” Fox said, referring to criticism that they’ve been too conservative in the past. Still, Delhomme clearly faces one of the most difficult weeks of his career. After going from an

unknown backup in New Orleans to leading Carolina to a Super Bowl appearance in his first season in town in 2003, Delhomme has had a love-hate relationship with fans. He’s played in two NFC championship games, was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2005 and has led 12 game-winning drives in the final 2 minutes or overtime. But Delhomme has had his share of clunkers, too — only nothing compares to the past two games. “I think you go through stretches where maybe you’re not seeing the field as well as you’d like,” Delhomme said. “I think that happens during the course of a season. ... But these two, they were separated by a bunch of time. For whatever reason, those are the cards that have been dealt.”

Vanguards were noticeably off-rhythm in the second. Starting setter Autumn Caudle was injured after colliding with a teammate on the final point of the opening set. “Autumn went down, and they panicked,” Crews said. “They forgot they could actually pass the ball when she went down.” The Vanguards had a hard time breaking serve, and CVCC opened with an 11-0 rally. The Vanguards didn’t score a point until a Buccaneer serve went out of bounds. Catawba Valley easily carried the set, 25-5. Caudle returned for the third set, and so did some Vanguard confidence. They opened the frame with a 4-1 run capped off by a Brandy Driver kill. The teams traded points, and the score was knotted up at 10. VGCC’s Elizabeth Campbell scored a point when her dig sailed over the net and

hit the floor uncontested, making it 11-10 Vanguards. With the score tied at 16, the Buccaneers tightened up and scored the next nine points to put it away. The Vanguards were led statistically by Driver (10 kills, 12 assists) and Caudle (nine aces, 10 assists). Syrita hWilliams had three blocks while Campbell had two. “We still have to work on the basic fundamentals. There’s no question about that because the girls haven’t had a lot of experience in playing,” Crews said. “When it’s all said and done, somebody better watch out — we’re going to knock some big ball.” The Vanguards are scheduled to play on the road against Surry Community College Saturday.

Federer stunned by del Potro in US Open final By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer

Tampa Bay Rays, left to right, B.J. Upton, Akinori Iwamura and Reid Brignac celebrate their 8-4 win over the Baltimore Orioles Monday.

Price, Rays end losing streak Rays 8, Orioles 4 BALTIMORE (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays ended their 11-game losing streak Monday night, using a 15-hit attack and an effective pitching performance by David Price to beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-4. The Rays avoided becoming the first World Series team in history to lose 12 in a row the following year. Rookie Reid Brignac had a career-high four hits — his first big league homer, two doubles and a single — and B.J. Upton also connected for Tampa Bay. Yankees 5, Angels 3 NEW YORK (AP) — Mark Teixeira hit a two-run triple on a play that caused Angels center fielder Torii Hunter to lose a shoe, then doubled to start the go-ahead rally in the eighth inning that led the Yankees over Los Angeles in a possible playoff preview. New York broke a 3-all tie when pinch-runner Brett Gardner took third as part of a double steal and came home as catcher Mike Napoli bounced the throw past third baseman Chone Figgins for an error. Robinson Cano added a run-scoring single, and Mariano Rivera finished to reach 40 saves for the first time in four years and the seventh time in his career. Tigers 6, Blue Jays 5 (10) DETROIT (AP) — Marco Scutaro’s second error of the game allowed Brandon Inge to score from second base in the bottom of the 10th inning, and the Tigers rallied to beat the Blue Jays.

Pinch-hitter Aubrey Huff belted a tying threerun homer in the ninth and Ryan Raburn also went deep for the American League Central-leading Tigers. Adam Lind and Edwin Encarnacion homered for Toronto.

Athletics 9, Rangers 0 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Brett Tomko pitched a five-hitter for his 100th major league win and the Athletics dealt a blow to Texas’ playoff hopes, routing the Rangers. Released by the New York Yankees on July 29, Tomko (5-3) struck out three and didn’t walk a batter in his second career shutout and 13th complete game. He beat Scott Feldman, snapping the right-hander’s sevengame winning streak. The Rangers have lost three of their first four on a nine-game homestand, falling 4 1/2 games behind Boston for the AL wild card. It’s the farthest Texas has been out of a playoff spot all season. Twins 6, Indians 3 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Michael Cuddyer’s tying three-run homer rescued the Twins in the eighth inning, ruining a fine start for Cleveland by Jeremy Sowers in a victory over the Indians. Sowers stymied the Twins with his jerky left-handed delivery and left with a 3-0 lead after seven innings. Reliever Tony Sipp let the first two batters reach base in the eighth, though, the first coming on an error by shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera.

Smoltz misses start, but already set for return By R.B. FALLSTROM AP Sports Writer

ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Cardinals skipped John Smoltz’s turn in the rotation Monday night after he complained of shoulder tendinitis two days earlier. The 42-yearold right-hander said he felt good enough to pitch but realized it was wise to take precautions. “I’m not saying it’s the most probable situation, but I could have pitched,” Smoltz said. “So we’re not taking any chances. It’s progressed the way I thought.” Todd Wellemeyer filled in for Smoltz against the Florida Marlins, making his first start since July 26. Smoltz, 1-1 with a 3.27 ERA in four starts with St. Louis, thinks he’s set to start Sunday against the Cubs, although manager Tony La Russa said he hasn’t set his rotation beyond the three-game Florida series. Smoltz received an anti-inflammatory shot for the pain, which he said crops up from time to time. He was sched-

uled for a bullpen session Tuesday, which would help him regain a feel for pitching. “You play mental games more than anything else and I’m used to those,” Smoltz said. “’Oh, I haven’t picked up a ball in nine days, How am I going to be?’ I’m not like that. I just think I’m going to be like where I left off.” La Russa said the Cardinals haven’t decided whether to use Smoltz as a setup man or as a starter in the postseason. One factor is the health of starter Kyle Lohse, who was awaiting results of an MRI exam on a forearm injury originally sustained in late May. Lohse lasted 3 1-3 innings and gave up four runs on Saturday against the Braves in his first start since Aug. 21 after returning from the 15-day disabled list from a groin strain. A 15-game winner in 2008, he’s struggled much of the year with mechanics after the forearm injury, sustained when he was hit by a pitch, and was 5-8 with a 4.83 ERA.

NEW YORK — Always so cool, so consistent, so in control of his emotions and his matches, Roger Federer amazingly let the U.S. Open championship slip from his grasp. Two points from victory against inexperienced, unheralded Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina, two points from a sixth consecutive title at Flushing Meadows and a recordextending 16th Grand Slam title overall, Federer, quite simply, fell apart Monday. He railed at the chair umpire. His legs grew weary. His double-faults mounted. He could not figure out a way to stop the 6-foot-6 del Potro from pounding forehand after forehand past him. In a result as shocking for who lost as how it happened, the sixth-seeded del Potro came back to win his first Grand Slam title by upsetting the No. 1-seeded Federer 3-6, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-2. “Maybe I look back and have some regrets about it,” said Federer, never before beaten by anyone other than Rafael Nadal in a major final. “But, you know, you can’t have them all and can’t always play your best.” He had won 40 consecutive matches at Flushing Meadows. He had won 33 of his previous 34 Grand Slam matches. And he has made the final at 17 of the past 18 Grand Slam tournaments, 21 overall. Del Potro? This was the 20-year-old’s first Grand Slam final, and he was 0-6 against Federer until now. But after handing Nadal the most lopsided loss of his Grand Slam career in the semifinals Sunday, del Potro came back the next day and rattled Federer. “I would like to congratulate Juan Martin on an unbelievable tournament. I had a great one myself, too,” Federer said, “but he was the best.” That’s some compliment. Somehow, del Potro never seemed intimidated by the setting or the man many consider the greatest tennis player in history. The usually unflappable Federer argued with chair umpire Jake Garner during a changeover, using a profanity and saying, “Don’t tell me to be quiet, OK? When I want to talk, I talk.” He also got steamed while up a set and serving at 5-4 in the second. Del Potro tried a forehand passing shot that was called wide, but he challenged, and the replay system showed he was right. Federer kept glancing at

Del Potro, meanwhile, managed to have the time of his young life, highfiving front-row fans after winning one point, and reveling in the soccer-style serenades of “Ole!” ringing through the stadium. “When I would have a dream, it was to win the U.S. Open, and the other one is to be like Roger. One is done,” del Potro said during the on-court ceremony. Then, addressing Federer directly, del Potro added: “I need to improve a lot to be like you. I’d like to congratulate you for fighting ’til the last point.” The 4-hour, 6-minute match was the first U.S. Open final to go five sets since 1999, and there were no early signs to indicate it would be this competitive — much less end with del Potro down on his back, chest heaving, tears welling, a Grand Slam trophy soon to be in his arms. He is the fifth-youngest U.S. Open champion and the first man from Argentina to win the event since Guillermo Vilas in 1977. Vilas was in the stands Monday, sitting one row behind Jack Nicklaus. One simple indication of the difference in age and status of the two finalists: The 28-year-old Federer’s guest box was full, with pals such as rock-star couple Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale and Vogue editor Anna Wintour seated alongside Federer’s parents, wife and agent. Only three of the 15 available seats were occupied in del Potro’s box.

Federer took a 3-0 lead in 15 minutes, winning one point by racing about 5 feet wide of the doubles alley for a defensive backhand, then sprinting the other way for a cross-court forehand passing winner that he celebrated by yelling and shaking his fists. He even took time to watch a replay on a stadium video screen. Not quite the “Did he really just do that?!” sort of trick shot Federer pulled off against Novak Djokovic in the semifinals — a back-to-the-net, between-the-legs, crosscourt passing winner to get to match point — but pretty spectacular, nonetheless. But del Potro eventually got going, swinging more freely and taking full advantage of Federer’s serving woes: 11 double-faults and a first-serve percentage of only 50. Used to traveling without a full-time coach, Federer generally is quite adept at making mid-match adjustments and dealing with opponents’ switches in strategy. But it was del Potro who realized he needed to put full belief in the strength of his 100 mph forehands and not worry about too much else. That tactic worked, and Federer never found a way to counter it, losing leads in the second set and the fourth set. He was up 5-4 in the fourth, and at 15-30 on del Potro’s serve, Federer needed only two more points to become the first man since Bill Tilden in 1920-25 to win the American Grand Slam tournament six years in a row. Del Potro held steady there, and Federer would never come that close again. While hardly a household name, del Potro was not

an unknown in the tennis world. He burst onto the scene a year ago with a 23-match winning streak and four tournament titles in a row on hard courts, the surface used at Flushing Meadows. There also was a bit of a harbinger for this back when del Potro presented problems for Federer in the French Open semifinals in June, taking a 2-1 lead in sets before frittering that away. Federer went on to win the title at Roland Garros, his first there, to complete a career Grand Slam and tie Pete Sampras’ career record of 14 major championships. Federer then broke that mark by collecting No. 15 at Wimbledon. Thanks to del Potro, Federer will have to wait for No. 16. From mid-May until Monday, Federer had been 32-1 with four titles from five tournaments. Aside from the on-court success, Federer’s 2009 included getting married and becoming a father — of twins, no less. Quite a year. Still, one can’t help but ponder this: No man has won even three straight major tournaments in a season — much less all four — since Rod Laver’s true Grand Slam in 1969. Federer came close this year, his French Open and Wimbledon titles bookended by a five-set loss to Nadal in the Australian Open final and a five-set loss to del Potro in the U.S. Open final. This U.S. Open was Federer’s first Grand Slam event since his daughters were born, and he spoke proudly of quickly learning to change diapers and getting used to sleeping less. “Right now, I’m just tired,” he said after his loss. “I want to get a rest.”

NL Roundup

Dempster, Cubs shut out Brewers Cubs 2, Brewers 0 CHICAGO (AP) — Ryan Dempster pitched eight shutout innings and Derrek Lee homered for the seventh time in 10 games Monday night, carrying the Chicago Cubs to a 2-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. Center fielder Sam Fuld and third baseman Aramis Ramirez made outstanding plays to keep Milwaukee off the board and help the Cubs win for the sixth time in seven games. Dempster (10-8) allowed four hits, walked one and struck out four to join John Smoltz as the only pitchers to follow three 20-save seasons with two 10-win seasons as a starter.

NFL Sunday Recap

Eagles 38, Panthers 10 CHARLOTTE (AP) — Donovan McNabb limped to the locker room with a cracked rib, but it was a dominant performance by the Eagles thanks to Jake Delhomme’s five turnovers. Victor Abiamiri picked up Delhomme’s fumble, caused by Trent Cole’s sack, and plunged 2 yards for the go-ahead touchdown on the first play of the second quarter. Moments later, DeSean Jackson returned a punt 85 yards for a touchdown, the second longest in franchise history. With the suspended Michael Vick watching from a luxury suite, Kevin Kolb finished the game at quarterback. Playing his first meaningful game since committing six turnovers against Arizona in the playoffs, Delhomme was nearly as bad. With the boos increasing before he was finally replaced in the third quarter, Delhomme was 7 of 17 for 73 yards with four interceptions and a lost fumble. Then, backup Josh McCown was carted to the locker room with a left knee injury, leaving third-stringer Matt Moore to inherit a big deficit. Saints 45, Lions 27 NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Drew Brees looked even better than last year, which was bad news for a Detroit Lions team trying to win for the first time since 2007. Brees tied a Saints record with six touchdown passes and threw for 358 yards in a 45-27 victory Sunday that extended the Detroit Lions' regular-season losing streak to 18. Two of Brees' touchdown passes went to Jeremy Shockey, who hadn't scored since being traded from the New York Giants to New Orleans last season. Brees connected with Marques Colston for 9 yards, Robert Meachem for 39, Shockey for 1 and 15, Devery Henderson for 58 and Heath Evans for 13. Matthew Stafford's first start had its ups and downs. The 2009 top overall draft choice was 16 of 37 for 205 yards with three interceptions. He led two touchdown drives, capping one with his first NFL score on a short keeper. Lions safety Louis Delmas also returned a fumble for a 65-yard touchdown. Detroit is still eight losses off the NFL record of 26 straight defeats by Tampa Bay in 1976-77. Vikings 34, Browns 20 CLEVELAND (AP) — Brett Favre threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to rookie Percy Harvin in his debut with the Vikings, and Adrian Peterson scored three touchdowns. Making his 270th consecutive start after a will-he-or-won't-he flirtation that dominated NFL headlines this summer, the 39-year-old Favre showed he can still fire the football with authority — and hasn't lost his boyish love for the game. After hooking up with Harvin, Favre sprinted into the end zone and tackled the young wide receiver. Peterson scored on a pair of 1-yard plunges and capped his day with an electrifying 64-yarder. Peterson, held to 25 yards in the first half, finished with 180 on 25 carries. Favre was 14 of 21 for 110 yards and appeared to be fully recovered from offseason surgery to repair a torn biceps tendon.

past several years. Houston's offense got past midfield just once in the first three quarters. The Texans were outgained 462-183, Steve Slaton was held to 17 yards rushing and Andre Johnson had 35 yards receiving. Matt Schaub struggled, too, completing 18 of 33 passes for 166 yards with no touchdowns and an interception. Sanchez was poised and confident from the start, often evading the rush to complete key passes. His first NFL touchdown came in the second quarter when he found Chansi Stuckey wide open on a 30-yard reception to put the Jets up 10-3. Ravens 38, Chiefs 24 BALTIMORE (AP) — Joe Flacco went 26 for 43 for 307 yards and three touchdowns, all career highs. The Ravens ruined the head coaching debut of Kansas City's Todd Haley as they amassed a franchise-record 501 yards, yet needed a 31-yard touchdown catch by Mark Clayton with 2:06 left to break a tie. Willis McGahee scored from the 1 with 31 seconds remaining to clinch it. Perhaps the most unexpected development during a strange afternoon was that the Chiefs kept it close despite playing without quarterback Matt Cassel, whose sprained left knee didn't heal enough to enable him to make his Kansas City debut. That left the quarterbacking responsibilities to Brodie Croyle and Tyler Thigpen, who entered with a collective 1-18 record as NFL starters. The Chiefs used a blocked punt and a long interception return to stay in the game. Cowboys 34, Buccaneers 21 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tony Romo threw for 353 yards and three long touchdowns, spoiling the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' debut under coach Raheem Morris. Miles Austin avoided two tacklers on the sideline to score on a 42-yard reception just before halftime. Roy Williams streaked through a mistake-prone secondary on a 66-yard TD play early in the third quarter. Romo teamed with Patrick Crayton, who had six catches for 135 yards, on the longest completion of the Pro Bowl quarterback's career — 80 yards — for a fourth-quarter TD that thwarted any realistic hopes for a Tampa Bay comeback. And erased memories of the departed Terrell Owens. Cadillac Williams, back after having surgery twice in 15 months, finished with 97 yards on 13 carries and scored a TD.

We had two winners this week: Annie Bullock and Nancy Woodruff both correctly picked the same amount of games, and were both seven points off picking the combined score of the tiebreaker game. A note to all contestants: In order for your tiebreaker total to count, you MUST circle the correct winner. One individual would have won this week, as he/she had a closer combined score predicted. However, that person did not circle a winner between the two. There are some intriguing matches on the docket this week, as every week. Southern Vance travels to Warren County to take on the rival Eagles. This one seems fairly evenly matched, and could really go either way. J.F. Webb is coming off a tough loss in Bunn. The Warriors will look to rebound against another Franklin County team, Franklinton. Northern Vance is still looking for its first win of the season. The Vikings head over to Stem to take on the Granville Central Panthers. On the college side, Brigham Young still has hopes of being a “BCS Buster.” After their stunning week one upset of Oklahoma, if they run the table the rest of the way, they may have a legitimate claim to a national title shot. Standing in their way this week will be Florida State, who will no doubt be looking to prove that the Jacksonville State hiccup was just a fluke. Staying in the state, the Tar Heels host ECU this week. North Carolina will likely need more than a safety to slay the Pirates. Expect a close, competitive game.

We had two winners this week: Annie Bullock and Nancy Woodruff both correctly picked the same amount of games, and were both seven points off picking the combined score of the tiebreaker game. A note to all contestants: In order for your tiebreaker total to count, you MUST circle the correct winner. One individual would have won this week, as he/she had a closer combined score predicted. However, that person did not circle a winner between the two. There are some intriguing matches on the docket this week, as every week. Southern Vance travels to Warren County to take on the rival Eagles. This one seems fairly evenly matched, and could really go either way. J.F. Webb is coming off a tough loss in Bunn. The Warriors will look to rebound against another Franklin County team, Franklinton. Northern Vance is still looking for its first win of the season. The Vikings head over to Stem to take on the Granville Central Panthers. On the college side, Brigham Young still has hopes of being a “BCS Buster.” After their stunning week one upset of Oklahoma, if they run the table the rest of the way, they may have a legitimate claim to a national title shot. Standing in their way this week will be Florida State, who will no doubt be looking to prove that the Jacksonville State hiccup was just a fluke. Staying in the state, the Tar Heels host ECU this week. North Carolina will likely need more than a safety to slay the Pirates. Expect a close, competitive game.

SUDOKU

Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ve let yourself get away with a few small infractions of your own rules. But if you don’t abide by your code, you’re not being who you want to be. It’s time to crack down. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have the talent of an actor. You are able to change something about yourself in order to fit the role you want. The question remains: Is this opportunity worth the effort it will take for you to do so? GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your impressions vary from those of a close friend. In fact, your friend has such a vastly different opinion that you’ll wonder if you are witnessing the same thing at all. You will be richer for understanding this other point of view. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You extend your hospitality, talent and effort to a person who interests you. At the time, you may not be sure why you are moved to do this, but go forward anyway. The new connections you make will be lucky. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be the exception to a rule. This requires someone to go out on a limb for you. This person will be willing to do so again if you are appreciative. A written note will be your most gracious response. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You want the people around you to behave in a certain way. Even though you know you cannot control them, there is a way you can influence them. You’ll make yourself into the standard you want others to follow.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You play to win, and win you will. Unfortunately, there is no time for gloating. Get right back in the game and play again. After you’ve won three in a row, you can afford to take a break. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A light and breezy attitude will allow you great flexibility. Stay cheerful, and you’ll be ready for anything and everything that happens. Evening brings a special creative spark. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). This is a fine time to take in your favorite media — shows, books, songs and whatever strikes your fancy. While you enjoy a story or some other artistic expression, your energy will get recharged. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are wise to gather different opinions on an issue. Intelligent insights will be of interest, but it’s your talks with silly people that will truly delight you, or at the very least give you fodder for a rambling fantasy. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have all the facts already, but they are like a puzzle that doesn’t make sense until you rearrange the pieces. Tonight you will start to see the correct order — the real truth of the matter. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Long ago you put in many hours of practice on a subject, and now you will put your expertise to practical use. You have no idea what you can do. You only learn after you’ve already done it.

AMENDED NOTICE OF FORECLOSURE SALE NORTH CAROLINA VANCE COUNTY 09 SP 62

simple property conveyed by general warranty deed from Anthony Quinn Brown, single to James Addylamptey and Beverly Green Addylamptey, husband and wife, dated 12/20/2006 recorded on 12/21/2006 in Book 1139, Page 449 in Vance County Records, State of NC. Save and except any releases, deeds of release or prior conveyances of record. Said property is commonly known as 144 East Young Avenue, Henderson, NC 27536. Third party purchasers must pay the excise tax, and the court costs of Forty-Five Cents (45¢) per One Hundred Dollars ($100.00) pursuant to NCGS 7A-308(a)(1). A cash deposit (no personal checks) of five percent (5%) of the purchase price, or Seven Hundred Fifty Dollars ($750.00), whichever is greater, will be required at the time of the sale. Following the expiration of the statutory upset bid period, all the remaining amounts are immediately due and owing. Said property to be offered pursuant to this Notice of Sale is being offered for sale, transfer and conveyance “AS IS WHERE IS.” There are no representations of warranty relating to the title or any physical, environmental, health or safety conditions existing in, on, at, or relating to the property being offered for sale. This sale is made subject to all prior liens, unpaid taxes, any unpaid land transfer taxes, special assessments, easements, rights of way, deeds of release, and any other encumbrances or exceptions of record. To the best of the knowledge and belief of the undersigned, the current owner(s) of the property is/are James

Addylamptey and wife, Beverly Green Addylamptey. An Order for possession of the property may be issued pursuant to G.S. 4521.29 in favor of the purchaser and against the party or parties in possession by the clerk of superior court of the county in which the property is sold. Any person who occupies the property pursuant to a rental agreement entered into or renewed on or after October 1, 2007, may, after receiving the notice of sale, terminate the rental agreement upon 10 days’ written notice to the landlord. The notice shall also state that upon termination of a rental agreement, the tenant is liable for rent due under the rental agreement prorated to the effective date of the termination. If the trustee is unable to convey title to this property for any reason, the sole remedy of the purchaser is the return of the deposit. Reasons of such inability to convey include, but are not limited to, the filing of a bankruptcy petition prior to the confirmation of the sale and reinstatement of the loan without the knowledge of the trustee. If the validity of the sale is challenged by any party, the trustee, in their sole discretion, if they believe the challenge to have merit, may declare the sale to be void and return the deposit. The purchaser will have no further remedy. This is a communication from a debt collector. The purpose of this communication is to collect a debt and any information obtained will be used for that purpose, except in the instance of bankruptcy protection. If you are under the protection of the bankruptcy court or have been discharged as a result of a bankruptcy proceeding, this notice is given to

you pursuant to statutory requirement and for informational purposes and is not intended as an attempt to collect a debt or as an act to collect, assess, or recover all or any portion of the debt from you personally.
