Rezoning for retail business

‘Come into my parlor said the spider...’

50 cents

Leaders set joint meeting

Clothing, shoe store would open on First Avenue

Mutual interests bring Henderson, Vance together

By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer

By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer

A Planning Board special meeting set for 3:30 p.m. Monday includes considering a request to recommend the City Council approve rezoning a couple of small lots along First Avenue to allow property to become the site of a clothing and shoe business. SRS of Henderson wants the land bordering First, which is the rear part of the property, to be rezoned from High Density Residential to Highway Commercial. The front part of the property, which is located along Andrews Avenue and is adjacent to a BP convenience store, already is zoned Highway Commercial. The request was on this past Monday’s Planning Board meeting agenda, but no recommendation could be made to the council because of the lack of a quorum of city-appointed Planning Board members, prompting the need for the special meeting. Additionally, the board could not act on two text amendments presented by the city staff. One involves tailors, who are allowed to do their work as a home occupation by a special use permit from the Zoning Board of Adjustment, but not as a use by right in a commercial building in OfficeInstitutional “A” districts. The other one involves automobile repair facilities. The city has regulations saying these businesses must be 500 feet from a house or a residential district. That in itself is prohibiting some locating in what are existing commercial districts because of houses already being in these districts, City Planning Director Erris Dunston said. Dunston suggested reducing or removing such buffers. This past Monday’s Planning Board meeting lasted approximately 40 minutes. Planning Board Chairman Michael Rainey did allow public hearings on the items. No one spoke in opposition. Planning Board members Linda Allen, Ricky Easter, Michael Inscoe and Marchita Vann were absent from the meeting. Allen and Easter are Vance County appointees.

8,330 workers to just more than 4 million, while the number of people unemployed decreased by 6,534 to 488,974, the ESC said. “It’s going to have an impact on consumer confidence because people aren’t as optimistic about finding work as they were in the past because if they were, they’d still be looking for work,” Hall said. The August rate marked a seventh consecutive month the number hovered above the previous historic high. Before this

A meeting of Henderson’s and Vance County’s officials will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday at The Silo restaurant off the Interstate 85/Ruin Creek Road interchange. Beverly Davis Jackson, executive assistant to City Manager Ray Griffin, said Griffin and County Manager Jerry Ayscue asked her to set up the session, which by state law is required to be open to the public. Jackson said the agenda has not yet been prepared, but she said she would provide a copy as soon as the items for discussion become available. Jackson said, however, that Ayscue is off until Tuesday morning, so the agenda may not be ready until then. One of the priorities the council set at the municipal government’s two-day March retreat was to re-establish the former business and industrial recruitment partnership with the county, as was already being worked on by Griffin, whom the council appointed as city manager in July 2008. A new economic development commission of six members from the county and three members from the city first met on Aug. 19. And one of several items mentioned at the municipal government’s two-day retreat in March was having a joint meeting with the county commissioners to talk about mutual concerns and interests. A session was held at City Hall in November with the county officials, as well as with state Reps. Jim Crawford and Michael Wray and state Sen. Doug Berger. The council, at a June 22 work session, gave the go-ahead to Griffin to sit down with Ayscue, with the idea being for the two to come up with ways the city and the county could work closely together in the near future on joint projects and programs of mutual interest to both governments. During the June 8 council meeting, former Rose’s stores

Daily Dispatch/GLENN CRAVEN

Taking advantage of a moth-attracting light on the deck outside a Vance County home late at night this week, a pair of large spiders spun webs near one another to do their hunting. The spider in the top photo, identified with the aid of Jeff’s Nature Home Page at online, is a black and yellow argiope (Argiope aurantia). These spiders, though very large and intimidating in appearance, and commonly encountered statewide, are not considered dangerous to humans. Other names for this creature include “Golden Garden Spider” and — due to a heavier pattern of spinning often seen at the center of their webs, though not pictured here — as the “Writing Spider.” The spider, bottom photo, appears to be an orb weaver of an unidentified variety.

Jobless rate remains near 11 percent Economist: ‘People looked for work, got discouraged and quit looking’ By MARTHA WAGGONER Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH — North Carolina’s unemployment rate dropped almost imperceptibly in August from a month earlier, remaining close to 11 percent as more people became discouraged by the job market and stopped looking for work. The state Employment Security Commission said Friday the unemployment rate was 10.8 percent, down only slightly from the 10.9 percent reported for July. The rate for August 2008

was 6.6 percent. Both employment and unemployment decreased for the first time this year. Typically, when unemployment falls, employment increases. “What that tells me is that the discouraged worker effect is at work here,” said William Hall, an economist at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and senior economist with the Center for Business and Economics Service. “People looked for work, got discouraged and quit looking.” Employment decreased by

Swine flu vaccines may be nasal spray By MIKE STOBBE AP Medical Writer

ATLANTA — The first doses of swine flu vaccine may all be the nasal spray version, government health officials said Friday. The government has said a trickle of vaccine will be available in early October, but on Friday Obituaries, 4A they defined the size of

that trickle — an estimated 3.4 million doses. Currently it looks like all of them will be a nasal spray vaccine that is approved only for healthy people ages 2 to 49, said Dr. Jay Butler, an official with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The nasal spray, called FluMist, is not recommended for some of the

people most in danger of severe swine flu complications. That includes pregnant women, children younger than 2, and people with asthma and other chronic respiratory diseases. However, it’s possible that some vaccine shots will become available by the first week of October Please see FLU, page 3A

Backyard fruit trees hard to resist My wife has been pestering me (or I should say, lovingly encouraging me!) to help her plant some fruit trees. I’m pretty sure “help her” means she picks them out and points to where she wants them planted, then I take it from Paul there. McKenzie Although I share Cooperative her desire Extension for a backyard orchard, bursting season long with sweet, ripe fruit, I also know that caring for fruit crops is a bigger task than most would imagine. Cosmos, by comparison, can practically be scattered about over any well-tilled patch, and the sower will be rewarded with abundant blossoms. Even tomatoes will sometimes produce a reasonable crop with little attention. But alas, the

novice orchardist will be brokenhearted at the results of even the most benign neglect, or even well-intentioned but uninformed care. Fruit trees are almost like pets, and should be chosen with equal care. If you want a lapdog, don’t bring home a St. Bernard puppy. There are three things to consider before purchase — species, variety and rootstock. Bananas would obviously be a poor species choice for Piedmont North Carolina. Cherries are marginal, although some mass retailers carry them. Beware of stores that stock what will sell, rather than what will grow. Locally-owned nurseries and garden centers may do a better job of stocking locally-adapted material. Next to consider is variety. Consider local adaptation first, personal preference second. Planting two or more varieties is almost always preferable, and in some cases required for pollination. Finally, rootstock should also be locally adapted, and will determine full-grown

grapes are also bullet proof, but require a sturdy trellis. My aim is not to discourage. I firmly believe that all families should have a fruit producing vine, shrub or tree in the yard. I am quite sure I will relent to my wife, probably sooner than I think.

size of the tree. For many reasons, smaller is better. Once home, take time to properly prepare the site. Skip the organic matter, but loosen the soil in a wide diameter around the planting site. Mix lime and phosphorous into the soil as recommended in the soil sample report you received as a result of your thorough and timely advanced planning. What, no report? Better for the plant to sit in the pot for a couple of weeks than to rush it into poorly prepared soil (but keep it watered!). Like pets, your fruit trees will require regular feeding, and “vaccinations” against major pests and diseases. The simplest way to “vaccinate” is with a fruit tree spray (insecticide and fungicide combined) sprayed on the foliage every two weeks during the growing season. Don’t forget to prune each winter, and again in June. If this is all starting to sound like work, remember it is simply the admission price. As an alternative, consider blueberries or figs, which are practically care-free once planted. Muscadine

as well, said Butler, chief of the CDC’s swine flu vaccine task force. Flu shots are made of killed influenza virus, while FluMist is a live but weakened strain. The nasal spray is only approved in the United States, and is made by the Marylandbased MedImmune, an AstraZeneca PLC subsidiary. Four other companies are making flu shots for the U.S. The initial vaccine doses will go to up to 90,000 sites, including schools and clinics, across the U.S. State health departments will determine which offices and clinics get the shots, and whether health care workers or others get the first doses, Butler said

at a CDC press conference Friday. The government has ordered 195 million doses and may order more if there’s enough demand. Butler said it’s good news that the flow of vaccines will start soon. “When we open the faucet, there won’t be a puff of smoke. There will be vaccine,” he said. FluMist was designed with kids in mind, and the company’s research suggests it is more effective in youngsters than a shot in the arm against seasonal flu. Studies in adults have found that shots are more effective. Some researchers think that’s because adults have had longer

year, the state’s highest unemployment rate was 9.7 percent in March 1983, a level matched in January. As he paced outside an ESC office in Raleigh, Reddick Patrick said he was seeking a status update on an unemployment claim he filed after losing his hotel job in July. Although the 21-yearold recently found a job at a wireless store in Cary, he’s still hoping to be compensated for the time he was looking for work. He said he’s proud that he was able to find work so quickly. “I made it a full-time job to find a job,” the senior at Shaw University in Raleigh said. “That’s the

kind of guy I am.” At the same office, however, 27-year-old Star Brewer of Raleigh said she’s had difficulty finding work since April, when she lost her job at a convenience store. The single mother said she’s seeking similar work, but many employers want her to work late night shifts, an impossible situation because of her 6-year-old autistic son. But Brewer remains optimistic. “I have faith and hope in God that he will lead me to the right job,” she said.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles supervisor has been arrested on charges he possessed three stolen riding lawnmowers and concealed evidence in an investigation. An arrest warrant issued in Duplin County on Friday says William Clevin Toman Jr. bought the three lawnmowers even though he had reasonable grounds to think they were stolen. DMV officials said

Toman was a district supervisor in Fayetteville. He started work in the division’s license and theft bureau in January 2006. The 51-year-old has been placed under investigatory leave with pay and was released on a $50,000 bond. He did not have a listed phone number. The DMV said the arrest follows a joint investigation by the agency, the State Bureau of Investigation and the FBI.

“Unemployment is continuing to rise, but it’s rising less rapidly,” Hall said. “It continues to be severe, but it’s not as severe. That doesn’t do you much good if you’re unemployed.” In addition, government jobs rebounded, adding 20,100 jobs for a 2.9 percent increase. Most of those jobs were in education and those jobs likely were the result of public schools laying off employees, then rehiring them after the Legislature passed a budget. In July, local governments issued more pink slips than any other field, cutting 22,600 jobs.

10.7 percent, and hasn’t changed more than a few percentage points since then. The state topped the national rate for August, which was 9.7 percent. The ESC said that since the recession began in December 2007, unemployment has increased more than 116 percent in the state, compared with 98 percent nationwide. However, the ESC said the number of initial claims for unemployment insurance in August was 82,299, a drop of 20,092 from a month earlier. Of those August claims, more than half were “attached” to a payroll, meaning the workers expected to be recalled to their jobs.

swine flu will prompt more demand. A recent Associated Press-GfK poll found 57 percent of people said they were likely to get it. Twenty-one states are now reporting widespread cases of swine flu, CDC officials said Friday. The CDC says swine flu hasn’t proven to be more dangerous than seasonal so far, but it tends to hit younger people harder than traditional flu. Because seasonal flu causes an estimated 200,000 hospitalizations and 36,000 deaths, that’s still a serious health threat, officials said.

exposure to flu viruses and flu vaccines and their immune systems don’t respond as dramatically to the live-virus vaccine. Dr. Daniel Jernigan, deputy director of the CDC’s influenza division, said there’s not that much difference in effectiveness between age groups. “Either is better than nothing,” he added. One dose of vaccine should be enough for adults and older children, whether it’s a shot or a spray. However, two doses probably will be needed for children younger than 10, CDC officials said. Typically fewer than 100 million Americans get a flu vaccine every year, and it’s unclear whether

State to get $21 million for energy programs RALEIGH (AP) — U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu says North Carolina will receive about $21 million to support energy efficiency programs. Chu also released a report Friday touting the benefits of energy efficiency. He talked about the potential of capturing wind energy off North Carolina’s coast and the benefits of the state’s nuclear power. The stimulus money will help upgrade state-owned buildings and go to projects in communities statewide. Some of the money will also go to capturing methane that can be converted into electricity. Chu said the investments will strengthen America’s economy and create local jobs.

N.C. deputy uses Taser on student, prompts review GREENSBORO (AP) — A North Carolina school board wants to set up a committee to review an incident at a high school in Greensboro where a student was shocked by a deputy with a Taser. The News & Record of Greensboro reported that a sheriff’s deputy used a Taser on a 15-year-old female student Wednesday afterthe student threatened two faculty members and assaulted the deputy when he tried to handcuff her. The 5-foot 4-inch, 155-pound girl was unharmed and was taken to the juvenile court system. School board members say the schools shouldn’t rely on police to review such incidents and want to set up a separate committee. The 16 deputies employed by the school system began carrying Tasers this year, a policy the board wants to review.

Law suit against Barker, ‘Price is Right’ tossed LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge on Friday threw out a wrongful termination lawsuit filed by a former “The Price is Right” employee against CBS and former host Bob Barker. Los Angeles Superior Barker Court Judge Malcolm Mackey dismissed the case after finding there were no issues for a trial to resolve, attorneys handling the case said. Deborah Curling sued Barker and the network in October 2007, alleging she was improperly fired from the show and forced to endure a hostile work environment. Several claims against Barker were thrown out last year, leaving only a “hostile work environment”

allegation against the show’s longtime host. Curling claimed she was dismissed because she testified in a former coworker’s wrongful termination case. She also accused Barker of making racist and anti-Semitic jokes, but Mackey determined she hadn’t proven that claim. Curling’s attorney, Nick Alden, vowed to appeal the ruling. He said he didn’t receive necessary information from CBS or other attorneys so he could properly

argue why the case should be allowed to continue. Barker’s attorney, Patty Glaser, said the judge made the correct ruling. “This is a case that should not have been brought,” Glaser said. “There aren’t even any contacts she alleges with Mr. Barker. “It was a shame it was brought and it’s hopefully over,” Glaser said. Barker retired in 2007 after hosting “The Price is Right” for 35 years.

Psalm 7:3-5

Our Opinion

ABC’s needless apology revealing If you have a pulse, it would have been difficult this week for you to have missed the controversy surrounding rapper Kanye West’s upstaging of country and pop music phenom Taylor Swift, who was accepting an MTV Video Music Awards trophy when the mercurial hiphop star bolted on-stage, grabbed her mic, and in essence said that Beyonce Knowles should’ve won the “best female video” category instead. But we don’t care to kick West again while he’s down. There are footprints enough on the man’s behind. Even President Barack Obama, in a candid moment prior to a teleconference interview, called West a “jackass,” actually one of the kinder things we’ve heard said about him. Rather, our disdain is reserved for ABC’s apology for reporting what Obama said. ABC reporters apparently were listening in on a fiber optic line the network shares as a cost-cutting measure with competitor CNBC. Obama was about to be interviewed by CNBC’s John Harwood, but before the formal taping, casual conversation shifted — as it had over cubicle walls and around water coolers in workplaces across America — to West’s outburst. “I thought that was really inappropriate,” Obama is heard to say. “… The young lady seems like a perfectly nice person. She’s getting her award. What’s he doing up there?” When someone asks the president why he thought West might’ve interrupted Swift’s speech, Obama’s response was curt and on-point. “He’s a jackass,” the president said, to laughter on the line. Apparently Obama — who has apologized (also needlessly, we believe) to West — then thought better of the term, and asked, goodnaturedly, that it not be reported. “Come on guys,” Obama says. “Cut the president some slack.” Unfortunately, Mr. President, “off the record” really only counts before a statement is made. And this jackass was already out of the barn. No fewer than three ABC employees rushed to Twitter the comment to readers and followers. Twitter, for the techno-challenged, is an electronic communications service that lets senders and receivers share messages of no more than 140 characters in length, instantly, over computers, cell phones and the like. One of ABC’s “tweeters” was former White House correspondent Terry Moran, who typed: “Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a ‘jackass’ for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT’S presidential.” When ABC news found out about its employees’ “tweets,” it had them removed from the site, and apologies were issued to the president. If ABC owed Obama an apology, it might only be for Moran’s wisecrack at the end of his tweet. Many news organizations are yet to develop policies governing Twitter use, and the widespread informality of the Internet has caused some journalists — including those who should darned-well know better, like Terry Moran — to be a little loose with their personal commentary, diminishing the reporter’s credibility. But ABC owed no apology to Obama for reporting a very interesting comment made by our president on a timely pop-culture story. And surely Obama knew the minute the word “jackass” slipped from his mouth that, with today’s technology, the world would know what he had said about Kanye West before he could even finish the interview. “If you’re sitting there with a microphone on, you don’t have a reasonable expectation of privacy,” said Kelly McBride, an expert in journalism ethics for the Poynter Institute. “If you’re a governor or president, you know that.” Added McBride: “The president calling Kanye West a ‘jackass’ is perfect … for a tweet. In fact, that’s the ideal format. You can do it in 140 characters. There’s not much else to say.” So why would ABC apologize? Well ABC, you might recall, is the network that in June aired the Primetime special “Questions for the President: Prescription for America,” an opportunity for Democratic Party salesmanship poorly masquerading as news, during which Obama was free to pitch his plan for health care reform without Republican rebuttal. In fact, ABC even refused to sell the GOP any advertising during the time slot. So this was really an apology from ABC for its employees so carelessly risking their Official Obama-Backers decoder rings.

I don’t know who coined the term “culture war” to describe our political divisions, but I’m reasonably sure he or she intended it only as a figure of speech. It feels like something else in light of a new report from the Intelligence Project of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors extremist groups. “Terror From the Right” is a listing of bombers, killers, would-be assassins and insurrectionists motivated by anger over abortion, gays, taxes, blacks, Muslims and illegal immigrants. Which raises an obvious fair and balanced question: What about terror from the left? The SPLC’s Mark Potok says left-wing terror essentially means eco-terrorists, e.g., animal rights extremists. The death toll from their work, he says, is zero. By contrast, Timothy McVeigh killed 168 people because he was angry at the government, brothers Matthew and Tyler Williams shot two men to death for being gay, James Kopp killed Dr. Barnett Slepian for being an abortion provider, and dozens of other men have been indicted for dozens of other plots to

kill thousands of other people with whom they had political disagreements. It’s one thing to read these stories in isolation and another to see them collected, and thereby connected, here, one extremist plot after another in the 14 years since Leonard Oklahoma Pitts City. It Distributed by gives you a Cagle Cartoons sense that — apologies to Buffalo Springfield — there’s something happening here and what it is is all too clear. The report provides troubling context for the outrageous behavior that has attended the election of our first African-American president. When you call them on that behavior, Barack Obama’s detractors love to accuse you of equating dissent with racism. It is a specious argument. I disagree with the president’s use of signing statements to avoid complying with laws he

doesn’t like, but it would never occur to me to carry a sign vowing death to him, his wife and their “two stupid kids” as a protester in Maryland did, or to pray that Obama dies of brain cancer as a “minister” in Arizona does, or to heckle him during a joint session of Congress as Rep. Joe Wilson infamously did. That’s not dissent. It is the howl of the unhinged and the entitled. The same folks who were complacent as President Bush spent surplus into deficit, wasted $600 billion dollars and 4,000 American lives on the wrong war, and watched a major American city drown are morally outraged because the new guy wants to reform health care? For many of them, I think — not all — that’s because they find it hard to accept that the new guy is liberal ... and black. As Potok sees it, some of us are angry over the dramatic changes underfoot in this nation. “People who want this country to remain a whitedominated country have lost. They have completely and utterly lost the battle and they can never win it. If they were to seal the borders tomorrow,

whites would still lose their majority in a matter of years, simply as a result of the difference in fertility rate.” As a result, many people “feel that this is no longer the country that their Christian white forefathers built, that they have been robbed, that this isn’t the world they grew up in and that they are very, very frightened” — a feeling stoked and exploited by political and media demagogues, who will loudly disclaim responsibility when that fear becomes violence. The president is black, the secretary of state is a woman, the new Supreme Court justice is Hispanic, the nation is changing, becoming vastly more inclusive. If some see that as a redemption of promise, the SPLC report reminds us that others regard it as an embodiment of threat. For the record, at least six of the plots it recounts were motivated by, or against, Obama. Take it as proof. “Culture war” is not a figure of speech.

Letters to the Editor Say ‘no’ to business as usual To the editor: One of the old EDC members told me “The state will supply leads for development” and “business comes to government officials it is not a good practice to pursue them (business).” I hope this is not the plan of the new EDC, as we know the state is unable to take care of itself much less represent the interests of Henderson Vance and if you don’t put the product in the window it won’t sell.

A tackle box full of race bait Of all the poisonous, ugly and intellectually vapid controversies ginned up in my lifetime, the current breakout of St. Vitus’ Dance over the “racist” opposition to Barack Obama may be the most egregious. Al Sharpton tells CNN’s Larry King that decent and racially sensitive Americans shouldn’t let a small minority make health care into a “racial issue.” Someone in the control room surely yelled, “Cue the laugh track!” In case you don’t get the joke, this entire “debate” over whether opposition to Obama’s health care reform is racist is totally, completely and in every way conceivable an invention of the left. Oh, sure, there are some racists who oppose Obama. Shocking news, that. And, yes, a tiny, tiny fraction of the signs at the Tea Party protests last weekend were racially insensitive. But if that’s how we’re going to score, then opposition to the Iraq war is anti-Semitic. After all, I saw a bunch of signs at antiwar protests that said bigoted things about Jews. Meanwhile, no significant conservative politician, pundit or intellectual has said that they object to Obama’s agenda because he’s black. Rather, they’ve said they oppose his agenda for precisely the same reasons they oppose Nancy Pelosi’s and Harry Reid’s and Barney Frank’s agendas. They stand athwart Obama yelling “Stop!” just as they did with Clinton and Democratic presidents before him. Magically, the alchemic powers of Obama’s black skin transmogrify the same arguments and the same rhetoric into racism. Saying “you’re wrong” to a white politician is a disagreement; saying it to a black politician is like shouting

through Bull Connor’s megaphone. It’s been said that a grand jury can indict a ham sandwich. Well, these people can indict a ham sandwich for being racist. There is not an issue, topic or flavor of ice cream that Al Sharpton won’t inject racism into. But suddenly Larry King needs to ask him whether opposition Jonah to socialized Goldberg medicine is racist — as Tribune Media if Sharpton’s Services response was ever in doubt. Why not just ask the host of an infomercial whether you really need a ShamWow? Left-wing writers spent the week droning on about how it’s now racist to say “I want my country back.” These amnesiacs are blissfully unaware that “taking back” America was the rallying cry of the Democratic Party for eight years under George W. Bush. Anti-white racists all? Jimmy Carter sighs, “It’s an abominable circumstance, and it grieves me and concerns me very deeply.” Well, ditto. Except I think the abominable circumstance is the Vesuvian eruption of nonsense belched forth from distempered liberals frustrated by their inability to win a public policy debate. An “overwhelming proportion” of the vocal opposition to Obama stems from the “inherent feeling” that “an African-American should not be president,” testifies the de facto voice of Southern self-loathing and pharisaical pomposity. Really, President Carter? Based on what? Polls you’ve studied? Which ones? Or did you descend from the temple

Today In History By The Associated Press




DEAR ABBY: When my dad passed away four years ago, I was only 13. My mother has raised me by herself and brought up the issue of dating only once after Daddy died. She asked how I felt about her dating again, and I started crying. Now that a few years have passed, I have changed my mind. I think it’s time for her to get out again. The problem is, she still wears her wedding ring. I think she needs to take it off, so she can send a different message to available men. She’s attractive, in her mid-50s and deserves to be happy again. How can I help her? — LOVING DAUGHTER, MANKATO, MINN. DEAR DAUGHTER: Tell your mom that now you’re older, the idea of her finding love again is no longer threatening and you want her to be happy. Suggest that removing her wedding ring would be a step in willright fill direction — then be DEAR ABBY: My client the quiet and hear her out. She husband just isn’t romantic. may be open to dating again When we were dating he’d — or she may be happy with bring me flowers and little her life just the way it is. surprises and cards. He



never proposed — we just kind of decided to get married. But when he bought the ring there was no getting down on one knee or profession of love. It’s been more than 26 years, and I thought I’d be over this by now. Unless I beat him over the head about it, he never plans anything or does anything romantic. We had a mini-vacation a few weeks ago, and I said, “This is supposed to be a romantic vacation.” He didn’t get the hint. No surprises, no dinner reservations, no flowers. What’s a girl to do with a great guy with no romance in his bones? — WISTFUL IN WILMINGTON DEAR WISTFUL: Because he’s a great guy, love him anyway. Then pick out some lovely gifts for yourself, plan the vacations and make the reservations -- including some romantic dinners. No one has everything, so focus on the positive and count your blessings.


DEAR ABBY: Last April, you printed my question about whether or not I should go to my junior prom even though I was nervous about boys and being dateless. I took your advice and went with friends. It turned out to be the right decision. The prom was one of the funnest nights I have ever had. I danced and danced with all my friends, and there were plenty of other girls there without dates. We all just danced together and had a great time. I realized that I overreacted about the entire boys issue and had worried too much. It turns out I Dear wasn’t the only one Abby who felt Universal Press that way. Syndicate One of my friends hadn’t been sure if she wanted to go either because of not having a date. However, like me, she realized it didn’t matter and went anyway — which is what I am happy about, too. Teenagers like me shouldn’t worry about the cliche that going to the prom requires a date. It doesn’t! You can just go and have a good time with your friends without worrying about life for a few hours. It gave me a chance to let go of the stress I had been having and express myself. Thank you for your advice. — THANKFUL TEEN IN N.Y. DEAR THANKFUL TEEN: You’re welcome. I am often asked whether the people who write to me let me know how my advice worked out. Your letter made my day — and I hope it will encourage other teens who find themselves with the same dilemma you were facing. Thank you for taking the time to send the update.

Spartan soccer falls to Fayetteville Academy, 4-0 From STAFF REPORTS

Boise St. outlasts Fresno St. in shootout

Page 2B

Passing game comes up big for Warriors in 32-21 win

Northern wins big over Panthers Northern Vance earned their first win of the season, defeating Granville Central 52-13 in Stem Friday night. The Vikings rushed for 230 yards and took advantage of a short field for much of the game. Eric Jeffries and Jalonte Williams each ran kickoffs back for touchdowns. The Vikings led 40-6 at the half. “I’m happy that we came out and we took care of business,” said Northern coach Cedric Crudup. Crudup said he still felt his team committed too many penalties in the game. “The kids played hard. I’m not mad about that.” Northern only attempted one pass play in the game. On the opening drive, Jordan Branch connected on a 20-yard touchdown pass to D.J. Alston. Branch had a big 48-yard run for a touchdown. Jeffries had a five-yard touchdown run, and Williams scored on a 20-yard run. Trey Elam scored from eight yards out in the third quarter. In his first game back from a knee injury, Adrian Bridges scored on a nine-yard run. “I’m ecstatic to get the first win, especially getting into the bye week,” Crudup said. The Vikings (1-4) will host Louisburg on Oct. 2 after the bye.

OXFORD — An effective running game usually trumps an opponent’s passing attack — but that was hardly the case Friday night at Warrior Field. Working out of their spread offense, the host J.F. Webb Warriors used a wealth of big plays through the air en route to

defeating ground-oriented Franklinton by a 32-21 score in non-conference prep football action. Both teams now stand at 2-3 overall on the season. Webb was coming off a lopsided loss last week at Bunn, and things didn’t start very well for the Warriors in this one either. After Webb was stopped

LAWRENCE, Kan. — After working all year to improve their pass rush, the Kansas Jayhawks got thrown a bit of a curve this week. Just which Duke quarterback will they be rushing on Saturday? Will it be Devils in Lawrence Thad Lewis, the Blue Devils’ starter coming into Duke (1-1) the season? Or at will it be Sean Renfree, who came off the bench at Army Kansas (2-0) last week and in his first col- Saturday, 12 p.m. legiate action hit 7 of 8 passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns? Coach David Cutcliffe says the answer is both. The underdogs from the ACC will alternate quarterbacks against No. 22 Kansas and defensive end Maxwell Onyegbule, who had two of the Jayhawks’ six sacks last week against UTEP. Lewis will continue to start, Cutcliffe said. “The circumstances are like a pitcher in baseball,” the coach said. “If the pitcher needs relief help, he’s going to get relief help. If he can pitch a complete game, then he’s going to be left in there. But you can see now why I’ve been saying all along that regardless of play, I wanted Sean Renfree to play.” The Blue Devils’ starter for the fourth year, Lewis missed 11 of his 16 passes before Renfree helped lead a 21-point, fourth-quarter rally. The rush to victory was also helped by Leon Wright, a senior cornerback who returned two interceptions for TDs. Lewis figured the snaps could be taken by whoever is on target at the time. “I guess it’s who has the hot hand at the time or how coach is feeling,” he said. “So you never know. You always be prepared. But it doesn’t

Kerr-Vance’s junior varsity soccer team defeated Fayetteville Academy 1-0 Friday on the road. Jordan Coghill scored the lone Spartan goal on a Wyatt Evans assist. The two teams were evenly matched, and the Spartans out-shot Fayetteville 15-14. Spartan keeper Brandon Young recorded the shutout. He saved nine shots — including a big penalty kick that helped seal the win. Fayetteville’s goalie saved eight Spartan shots. Spartan coach Tommy Farmer said the match was a “great possession game.” The Spartans are now 3-31 on the season.

WARRENTON — Hakim Jones intercepted two passes — returning one to the end zone — and Southern Vance took advantage of Warren County miscues in their 15-6 victory Friday night. A Nunu Henderson touchdown run and a safety after a bad snap gave the Raiders an 8-6 halftime lead. Jones intercepted E.J. Miles’ tipped pass on the first Eagle drive in the second half. He actually lost control and fumbled it in the end zone, but Southern’s Howard Simmons recovered it for the touchdown. The Raiders carried the momentum the rest of the way to beat their former Northern Carolina Conference rival. “It was a game of big plays and big swings,” said Southern coach Mark Perry.

Pinkney’s play could be key to ECU-UNC game By AARON BEARD AP Sports Writer

CHAPEL HILL — East Carolina figured it had a sure thing in quarterback Patrick Pinkney. Yet as ECU prepares for a trip to No. 24 North Carolina, he has come to embody the Pirates’ early inconsistency. The sixth-year senior has thrown more interceptions than touchdowns and has had trouble with his accuracy. It’s no coincidence that the Pirates’ offense hasn’t scored a point after halftime, a fact that puts Pinkney in the spotlight against the Tar

East Carolina at North Carolina Today, noon on ESPN2 Heels (2-0) and their aggressive defense Saturday. “The plays we’ve needed to make, we didn’t make,” Pinkney said. “We had a missed throw, a missed block or a dropped catch. It’s not just pressure on me.

Everybody’s got to put pressure on themselves to execute on every play. That’s how you win championships: everybody doing their job.” Pinkney would know. He directed the Pirates (1-1) to upsets of Virginia Tech and West Virginia on the way to last year’s Conference USA championship. Two years ago in Greenville, he threw for 406 yards and three touchdowns in his first start to hand Butch Davis his first loss as North Carolina’s coach. Yet that player hasn’t shown up in 2009, even if the Pirates are trying to deflect the blame

solely from Pinkney. “Patrick can be sharper and crisper and he can throw the ball a little bit better than he has,” East Carolina coach Skip Holtz said. “It’s not just Patrick. There’s a lot of things we have to evaluate to turn and get the passing game straight. It’s not just tighten that little screw and away we go.” Pinkney has completed 42 percent of his passes with two touchdowns and three interceptions. Last season, he completed 61 percent with 13 TDs and Please see ECU-UNC, page 4B

Two-minute drill No. 10 Boise St. wins shootout over Bulldogs NFL Harris doubtful, Otah probable for Panthers CHARLOTTE (AP) — Carolina Panthers starting strong safety Chris Harris is doubtful for Sunday’s game at Atlanta. Harris missed his third straight practice Friday after being a late scratch from the opening loss to Philadelphia with a sore left knee. Quinton Teal is expected to start against the Falcons. Starting right tackle Jeff Otah practiced Friday a day after sitting out with a sore left shoulder. He’s listed as probable. Defensive tackle Nick Hayden practiced on a limited basis and is questionable with a toe injury. Newly acquired Louis Leonard could get his first start in his place. Running back Jonathan Stewart (Achilles’ tendon), defensive ends Charles Johnson (knee) and Everette Brown (ankle) and cornerback Sherrod Martin (knee) are all probable.

NASCAR Montoya opens Chase with pole-winning run LOUDON, N.H. (AP) — Juan Pablo Montoya has set a track record while winning the pole at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Montoya turned a lap at 133.431 mph to take the top qualifying spot Friday. Montoya broke the record of 133.357 set by Ryan Newman in 2003. The former Formula One driver will start on the front row for Sunday’s opener of the Chase for the championship. Montoya qualified for the 12-driver Chase field for the first time. Tony Stewart qualified second and was followed by Kurt Busch, Denny Hamlin and Carl Edwards as Chase drivers claimed the first five spots.

Golf British woman makes two holes-in-one WHITLEY BAY, England (AP) — Ruth Day, a 64-year-old retiree from northern England, had the day of her life on the golf course last week. Day shot two holes-in-one in the same round at Whitley Bay Golf Club, where she is a member. “A hole in one in itself is usually pretty amazing,” Day said in Friday’s edition of The Journal, a newspaper in northeast England. “But I couldn’t believe it when I did the same thing 10 holes further on.” The feat is rare. Golf Digest estimates the odds against a golfer having two holes-in-one in the same round at 67 million to 1. But just last week, former Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Steve Blass made two holes-in-one in a span of 11 holes during the team’s annual alumni golf outing. Day shot her first ace on the 149-yard third hole on Sept. 9. She added the second on the 161-yard 13th.

FRESNO, Calif. — Just when it looked like another Boise State blowout against Fresno State, the game turned into a wild WAC shootout. Jeremy Avery scored on a 67-yard screen pass and added a 74-yard run, providing just two of the many highlight-reel plays in No. 10 Boise State’s 5134 victory over Fresno State on Friday night. Titus Young scored two touchdowns, including a diving fumble recovery in the end zone after Avery ran it 74 yards to the 1 as Boise State (3-0, 1-0) won for the 57th time in its past 59 Western Athletic Conference games. Yet few were as entertaining as this one. The Broncos broke out to a 24-3 lead then had to scramble to win this one and keep alive its hopes for making it back to a Bowl Championship Series game. Fresno State (1-2, 0-1) got three touchdown runs of at least 60 yards from Ryan Mathews but again fell short against a ranked team, losing for the 10th straight time against teams ranked in the Top 25. The skid started with a 50-42 loss to No. 1 Southern California in 2005. This game provided the appropriate bookend. With the Friday night stage to themselves, Boise State and Fresno State provided enough big plays to last the weekend. The Broncos had two 77-yard kickoff returns, an interception return for a touchdown, a 60-yard touchdown run by D.J. Harper, and three plays of more than 60 yards

The first came on a long run that appeared to be bound for the end zone. But A.J. Jefferson poked the ball loose just before Avery scored. With the ball rolling toward the back of the end zone for an apparent touchback and Boise State turnover, Young made a diving recovery before sliding out of bounds for the score that made it 34-24. Avery then answered a Fresno State score with the long screen pass that restored a 14-point lead early in the fourth quarter and he added a 69-yard run that set up a field goal. Avery finished with 186 yards on 11 carries, with 83 more yards receiving. Fresno State had plenty of big plays of its own, starting with the touchdown runs of 69, 60 and 68 yards

by Mathews. Chastin West made a leaping 41-yard catch that was nearly an interception as Brandyn Thompson tried to wrestle the ball away and Devon Wylie made an acrobatic 21-yard touchdown catch from Ryan Colburn on the next play. Boise State appeared to pull away with an 8-yard touchdown pass from Kellen Moore to Austin Pettis in the opening minute of the fourth quarter, making it 41-27. But Mathews answered with his 68-yard run. Then one play after Marvin Haynes dropped a potential interception for Fresno State, Avery took Moore’s screen pass all the way for the third touchdown in the first 2 minutes of the fourth quarter, making it 48-34.

Moore completed 18 of 26 passes for 181 yards and three touchdowns. Mathews paced Fresno State with 234 yards on 19 carries. The rout appeared to be on early for Boise State. Winston Venable returned an interception 30 yards for a touchdown on the third play of the game. The Broncos added a field goal by Kyle Brotzman and the long run by Harper to make it 17-0 before Fresno State even managed a first down. That extended Boise State’s run of consecutive points against Fresno State to 68, dating to late in the second quarter of last year’s 61-10 Broncos’ victory. The lead grew to 24-3 before Mathews single-handedly brought the Bulldogs back with his two long runs, cutting Boise State’s halftime lead to 24-17.

NBA ready to move ahead with replacement refs By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

NEW YORK — The NBA will hold training camp next week with replacement officials, saying the referees union has rejected its final contract offer. The National Basketball Referees Association has been bracing for a lockout since talks first broke down last week, and lead negotiator Lamell McMorris called it “imminent and unavoidable” after no deal was reached Thursday. A statement from the NBA on Friday made it clear the lockout was under way. “It is extremely disap-

pointing that the NBRA has ignored the economic realities, rejected our offer, and left us with no choice but to begin using replacement referees,” executive vice president and general counsel Rick Buchanan said. McMorris did not immediately return a call seeking comment. Training camp was scheduled to begin Sunday, but will now be pushed back into sometime next week to give the NBA time to line up the replacements and get them to New Jersey. The league did not say how many referees would be at camp. There are 57 active NBA officials.

The league began contacting replacements last Wednesday, the day after the last face-to-face meeting between the sides in New York, which commissioner David Stern abruptly ended because he said the officials reneged on a previously agreed to proposal. The contract between the NBA and its officials expired Sept. 1, and the sides had been trying to reach a new two-year deal. They largely agreed on salaries, which would have held steady this year and given the refs a slight increase in the second year, but the union balked at the league’s attempt to change retirement

benefits. The league also sought to lower costs through reductions in areas such as the travel budget and per diems, and the union also fought a league plan to develop younger officials. But the biggest difference was in the referees’ pension and severance plans. The NBA’s statement said the previous deal gave the referees retirement bonuses of up to $575,000, on top of pension benefits that could exceed $2 million. It said that came on top of salaries of nearly $150,000 per year for entry level referees and more than $550,000 annually for the most senior referees.

Martin signs contract extension through 2011 By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

LOUDON, N.H. — NASCAR championship contender Mark Martin will drive for Hendrick Motorsports through 2011, an easy commitment for a driver at the top of his game. Martin starts the Chase for the championship Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway as the Sprint Cup Series points leader, a spot he earned through four victories this season. “That shouldn’t come as any big surprise,” Martin said Friday of the contract extension. “Who would want to quit?” Martin, in his 27th season of NASCAR, has repeatedly staved off retirement over the last several years. He ran a partial schedule in 2007 and 2008 and the time off re-energized him. Then came an offer to drive for elite Hendrick Motorsports, and Martin has thrived. At 50, he’s the elder statesmen of the 12-driver

Chase field. But his high performance has made him a favorite for his first Cup title. “As long as I can have fun, compete at a high level and have the opportunity to win, I’m going to continue to do this,” Martin said. “I’m having a blast, and that’s always been most important to me and my family.” Martin Martin initially agreed to just one full season in the No. 5 car for Rick Hendrick, with an option to run at least a partial schedule in 2010. But he signed on for all of next year after a win in April at Phoenix — Martin’s first victory since 2005. He’s also earned wins at Darlington, Michigan and Chicago, and the four wins this year equal the number of titles he won from 2000 to 2008. He’s also won six poles. Although he admits that 2011 is a long-term

commitment, Martin said the sponsorship opportunity for HMS made the decision easy. GoDaddy. com will be the primary sponsor of the No. 5 for 20 races a season beginning next year. “Rick, he had to make some decisions about some long-range things, and he really wanted it,” Martin said. “With the success we were having, I don’t see me falling off a cliff anytime soon. I hope that I’ll be able to do the job. I understand that it works better for sponsor commitments and those types of things.

“So I am pretty comfortable. There is no place I’d rather be today than at the race track, and I didn’t always feel that way, so I did something about it.” Greg Biffle, a teammate when Martin drove for Roush Fenway Racing, said the contract extension is not surprising. “He’s in damn good equipment and it will be hard to hang your hat up, driving and winning races and performing at the level that he is,” Biffle said. “So I certainly wouldn’t be a betting man on when he is going to hang his helmet up.” RICHMOND, Va. — These numbers were drawn Friday afternoon by the Virginia Lottery: Pick 3: 5-5-8 Pick 4: 6-5-7-6 Cash 5: 5-7-8-22-31 These numbers were drawn Friday night: Pick 3: 9-6-3 Pick 4: 9-1-6-5 Cash 5: 5-6-21-26-27 Mega Mill.: 18-27-31-36-52 Mega Ball: 33

AL Roundup

NL Roundup

Mariners beat Yanks with Ichiro walk-off Howard homers twice, Mariners 3, Yankees 2 SEATTLE (AP) — Ichiro Suzuki hit a two-out, two-run homer off New York closer Mariano Rivera and the Seattle Mariners stunned the Yankees 3-2 on Friday night. Pinch-hitter Mike Sweeney kept the ninth inning alive with a two-out double to deep right-center field. Suzuki then jumped on the first pitch from Rivera for his 10th homer of the season and second straight day with a gamewinning hit. Suzuki had the winning hit in the 14th inning of Seattle’s 4-3 win over Chicago. It was Suzuki’s third career hit off the Yankees’ closer. It was Rivera’s second blown save of the season, having allowed a two-run homer to Boston’s Jason Bay on April 24. Suzuki’s homer made a winner out of Seattle ace Felix Hernandez, who pitched a seven-hitter. Twins 3, Tigers 0 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Michael Cuddyer’s two-run homer off Rick Porcello (13-9) was all Brian Duensing needed to beat Detroit and move Minnesota within three games of the AL Central lead, energizing the Twins

in a 3-0 victory over the Tigers on Friday night. This is the closest the Twins (75-72) have been to first place since Aug. 2. They’re 6-1 at home this year against Detroit. Duensing gave up two infield singles among just four hits and only one walk over 6 1-3 innings, before yielding to the bullpen to finish Minnesota’s fifth straight victory. Joe Nathan posted his 42nd save, allowing a walk and a double with two outs before finishing a scoreless ninth. As the Tigers (78-69) have stumbled since Labor Day, failing to get their bats going and take advantage of the assorted problems bothering the Twins and Chicago White Sox, the AL Central has quietly emerged as the one division in baseball this season with an actual pennant chase. Even the wildcard spots in both leagues have been heading toward anticlimactic finishes.

Red Sox 3, Orioles 1 BALTIMORE (AP) — Clay Buchholz pitched six innings of five-hit ball, and Boston extended its winning streak against Baltimore to six games. Jason Bay hit his team-

high 34th home run for the Red Sox, who have won eight of nine and 14 of 19 to take command in the AL wild-card race. Victor Martinez had a single and a double to stretch his hitting streak to 17 games, tying a career high. Buchholz (6-3) gave up one run, walked three and struck out one. The righthander is 5-0 with a 2.80 ERA in seven starts since Aug. 13. Jeremy Guthrie (10-15) yielded three runs and nine hits in 5 2-3 innings. He’s 0-3 in four starts against Boston this season, and Baltimore has lost all four games.

Rays 11, Blue Jays 4 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — James Shields won at home for the first time in more than three months, and eight straight Tampa Bay batters reached base to start a sixrun third inning. Shields (10-11) had been 0-5 in his previous 10 starts at Tropicana Field since beating Kansas City 3-2 on June 4. He gave up four runs and nine hits in six innings. Carl Crawford had an RBI triple and Gregg Zaun hit a run-scoring double in the third to help the Rays

powers Phils past Braves

take a 6-2 lead. Evan Longoria hit his 31st homer of the season and had three RBIs for the AL champs, who won for just the third time in 16 games.

Phillies 9, Braves 4 ATLANTA (AP) — Ryan Howard homered twice, Jimmy Rollins hit a threerun shot, and the Philadelphia Phillies overcame a shortened start by rookie J.A. Happ to end Atlanta’s seven-game winning streak with a 9-4 victory Friday night. Philadelphia, which has won six straight, snapped the Braves’ longest stretch of consecutive victories since July 2006, dropping Atlanta 8 1/2 games back in the National League East and hurting their fading wild-card chances.

Royals 11, White Sox 0 CHICAGO (AP) — Luke Hochevar pitched a threehitter for his first career shutout and Miguel Olivo hit a pair of two-run shots and drove in a career-high six runs. Hochevar (7-10) allowed just three singles and struck out five with one walk. The right-hander won his first start since July 25 and won his first game in his last eight decisions. He struck out Ramon Castro in the third inning to start a string of eight consecutive outs. Alberto Callaspo had a two-run triple in the seventh inning and Billy Butler added a two-run double in the eighth inning for Kansas City, who have won nine of its last 11 games. John Buck also had a solo home run in the ninth. The White Sox have lost four of their last five. Mark Buehrle (12-9) allowed five runs on seven hits in six-plus innings.

D-Backs 7, Rockies 5 PHOENIX (AP) — Gerardo Parra doubled in the go-ahead runs, Brandon Allen and Ryan Roberts homered and the last-place Diamondbacks rallied to beat the Rockies, sending the NL wild card leaders to their fifth loss in six games. With the score tied at 4 and two outs in the seventh, Parra hit a deep fly down the right field line. After a long run, Brad Hawpe gloved the ball but dropped it before running into the fence, allowing two runs to score.

WEBB, from page 1B initial quarter. On Oxford’s next snap from scrimmage, FHS came up with an interception, and the Red Rams were in business at the Warriors’ 20-yard line. Two plays later, FHS was in the end zone again, this time on a 24-yard counter off the left side from wingback Reggie Williams. White added another PAT, and the Red Rams seemed in charge early at 14-0 with 5:02 left in the first period. An excellent kickoff return helped Webb gain some momentum, and the Warriors took over at the FHS 43-yard line. Webb cashed in five

plays later when quarterback Joel Adcock, who had a big night, located Matt Gumm on an 11-yard scoring strike. The 2-point run failed, but the Warriors were quickly back in the game at 4-6 at the 3:14 mark of the first quarter. Webb then used a bit of trickery to regain possession as an onside kick was successfully recovered at the FHS 41. The Warriors faced a fourth-and-inches situation, but a simple Adcock sneak attempt turned into a 37yard gainer. Trevor White then ran in off an option play, but Webb missed the 2-pointer and still trailed

14-12 — with 1:28 yet to be played in the opening stanza. Following an exchange of fumbles, Adcock was at it again, hooking up with Darquis Thomas for a 62-yard touchdown pass that helped give Webb the lead for good at 20-14. FHS then turned the ball over on downs, and Webb’s revving offense struck again, this time on a 50yard breakaway touchdown burst from White, who broke several tackles along the way. Webb led 26-14 at the break, but a Warriors’ fumble — one of four turnovers on the night — resulted in a two-yard TD plunge from

RAIDERS WIN, from page 1B Adam Aycock’s head, and the punter smothered it in the end zone to give the Raiders a safety. Southern took over at their own 49 after the free kick. Harris completed a big pass to Marc Boyd down to the 15-yard line, but it was called back for a holding call. A big sack from Jonell Brown pushed the Raiders back on second down, and the drive stalled. Raider special teams came up big after the Eagles went three and out on their next possession. Aycock’s punt was partially blocked, and Southern had good field position again. A 25-yard pass to Boyd and an 11-yard Harris scramble put the ball at first and goal at the 3. Henderson punched it in, and after the PAT was missed, Southern led 8-6. Warren County was hurt by another mistake on their next drive. Facing third and long from their 28, another bad snap sailed over Miles’ head. The sophomore scooped it up, but was tackled near the 1-yard line. Out of his own end zone, Aycock got the punt off, but Southern had the short field again, starting at the Warren County 16 with 5:45 to go in the half. But the Eagles dodged the bullet when Brown came up big for them again. Another sack pushed Harris and Co. backwards, and, facing third and 17, Harris threw a pass that was picked off by Sean Brake. An intentional grounding penalty stalled the Eagles’ subsequent drive,

and Southern went into the half with all the momentum. They carried it into the third quarter, and opened the half with a dagger. On third down of the first Eagle possession, Miles’ intercepted pass was run back by Jones 34 yards to the end zone. The successful PAT made it 15-6 with 10:45 left in the quarter. “This game is 100 yards long and we play it in so many inches,” said Perry. “If he’s an inch to the right or an inch to the left, he doesn’t get that ricochet and bring it back.” Warren County had one more good opportunity. A big 41-yard pass from Miles put the Eagles at the Raider 27. On third down, with 2:21 to go, Miles was tipped again by a Raider linebacker and picked off by Jones. With the ball and the lead, the Raiders’ ground game ran out the clock. “He came up big from the safety,” Perry said of Jones “In both situations, they were man under with the free safety, and he freed the right way.” Henderson rushed for 43 yards on 10 carries. Harris had 58 yards on 11 carries, and was 6-of-13 passing for 87 yards. Miles was 8-for-23 for 140 yards. “I can’t credit our defense enough tonight, they really snubbed it out and stuck in their tight. They gave up some yards, but when it came down to the nitty-gritty, they always had an answer for it, and I’m just proud as pudding

for them,” said Perry. Warren County is now 1-3 with the loss. “I feel like defensively we played fairly well tonight. Offensively, I think we played well at times, but we left some points out on the field,” said Eagle coach Maurice Crump. “Even though it’s a loss, I feel good about the team because of the level of intensity they played with, the fact that they kept fighting even though things were looking bleak towards the end. I feel like next week we’re going to turn it around.” Northern Carolina 2A Conference play begins for the Eagles next week, when they play host to North Johnston. Crump said the team will work on the passing game in practice, and work to improve their special teams play. “We take care of that right there, and this might be a different ball game,” he said. Southern (2-2) returns home next week for the first time since opening week. They will host Northern Nash, which begins a three-game homestand. The Raiders only have two more road games scheduled in the regular season. “It’s a long time since we’ve been home,” Perry said. “We get to play at home for a while. You know, even Dorothy said, ‘there’s no place like home.’” Contact the writer at erobinson@

Williams midway through the third period. The Warriors then embarked on a long drive that featured only eight rushing yards. Adcock located Thomas on an 8-yard score, and Webb was back in control at 32-21 with just 14 ticks remaining in the third quarter. Neither team would score the rest of the way. Webb closed with 330 total yards, compared to 319 for the Red Rams.

Marlins 4, Reds 3 CINCINNATI (AP) — John Baker’s RBI single highlighted Florida’s four-run rally in the ninth inning on Friday night, and the Marlins snapped their nine-game losing streak in Cincinnati with a victory over a Reds team that had been previously perfect at holding such leads. Nationals 6, Mets 5 NEW YORK (AP) — Ryan Zimmerman hit his 30th homer, Josh Bard drove in three runs and the Nationals held off the free-

falling Mets. New York rallied for three runs in a wild ninth inning and had runners at second and third when Jeff Francoeur hit a comebacker that knocked Mike MacDougal’s glove off his hand. With his mitt on the ground in front of him, the reliever picked up the ball barehanded and lobbed a shaky throw to first for the final out.

Pirates 5, Padres 1 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Charlie Morton allowed one run in seven innings, helping the Pittsburgh Pirates win for only the third time in their past 20 games, over the Padres. Morton (4-8) had lost six of his past seven decisions and had a 7.13 ERA since the beginning of August but shook off a rough first inning Friday to allow only six hits and a walk to win for only the second time since July 18. Brewers 3, Astros 2 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Casey McGehee singled in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and the Brewers beat the Astros, sending Houston to its fifth straight loss. With one out in the eighth, Astros manager Cecil Cooper brought in left-hander Wesley Wright (3-4) to face the left-handed batting Fielder. He ruined the move by doubling into the leftfield corner. Cardinals 3, Cubs 2 ST. LOUIS (AP) — Matt Holliday homered off Aaron Heilman leading off the bottom of the ninth inning giving the Cardinals a victory over the Cubs, reducing their magic number for clinching the NL Central to six.

Grobe pulls out all stops to avoid upset vs. Elon By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe came prepared as he gathered his team this week. He wore his reading glasses, had statistics in front of him and used a stern voice. Grobe is determined not to have the Demon Deacons join the growing group of college football’s top dogs to lose to the little guys of the lowertier Football Championship Subdivision. He knows a slip up against upstart neighbor Elon Saturday in their first meeting in 70 years will quickly erase memories of the Demon Deacons’ stirring comeback win over Stanford last week. It would also be a miserable way to go into the start of the Atlantic Coast Conference schedule next week against Boston College. “I went through the (FCS) Top 25 with these guys,” Grobe said of the meeting. “We just pointed out with them, started with Richmond at No. 1.” The Spiders knocked off Duke on the same day William & Mary upset Virginia, Villanova beat Temple and Iowa needed two blocked field goals to hold off Northern Iowa. Last week, New

Hampshire surprised Ball State, while Maryland needed overtime to beat James Madison and Florida State had to rally to edge Jacksonville State. “I think our guys understand that if you look at any team at the Championship Subdivision level ranked in the Top 25, you better buckle up because they’ve got good players,” Grobe said. “And their talent’s probably not that much different.” The Phoenix (2-0), in only their second decade in Division I, are ranked No. 11 in the FCS polls. They’ve only played one Football Bowl Subdivision school before — losing 28-13 at South Florida in the 2007 opener — but have plenty of offensive weapons. Quarterback Scott Riddle has thrown more touchdown passes than Southern Conference rival Armanti Edwards of Appalachian State. Jamal Shuman rushed for 190 yards last week against Presbyterian. Receiver Terrell Hudgins has a chance to break Jerry Rice’s FCS record for career yards receiving. Elon has rolled up nearly 1,200 yards in beating non-scholarship Davidson and FCS

newcomer Presbyterian by a combined 97-7. Only coach Pete Lembo knows the 50-mile trip to Winston-Salem, N.C., Saturday involves a major jump in competition — and a big day for the school of 5,000 students. “To be even mentioned in the same sentence with a school like Wake Forest is such a dramatic change, or evolution, over the last 20-25 years that now this becomes a very, very meaningful football game beyond just our football program,” Lembo said. Grobe understands that enthusiasm as he tries to get Wake Forest (1-1) to avoid a letdown a week after Riley Skinner’s 1-yard keeper with 2 second remaining capped 21 unanswered points in a 24-17 victory over the Cardinal. “If your players perceive Elon as being any different than Baylor or Stanford then you’ve got a problem.” Grobe said. The good news for Grobe is his defense finally shined in the second half last week. Still finding its way after several key losses from last season, Wake allowed 116 yards and no points in the final 30 minutes. Pressuring Riddle could be the key to pre-

venting Elon from scoring enough points to stay in the game. “John Russell is a legitimate pro prospect. Boo Robinson I’m sure is a draftable guy as well. Both are fifth-year seniors and they’re going to be a huge challenge for our guys inside,” Lembo said. “They’ve got defensive ends that I’m sure will be as good as any we see all year. There’s going to certainly be times where Scott is going to be challenged to make those good decisions. Sometimes it’s just throwing the ball away.” The last time these teams met in 1939 — before the Wake Forest moved to Winston-Salem — the Demon Deacons cruised 34-0 to improve to 8-0-1 in the series. It resumes in a much different era where the little guys feel as empowered as ever. “We have to take them as just any other great team coming into town who, to be honest, isn’t going to be intimidated by us,” Wake Forest linebacker Hunter Haynes said. “They want to beat us just like anyone else does.” ——— AP Sports Writer Joedy McCreary in WinstonSalem, N.C., contributed to this report.

Another FCS tuneup for North Carolina State By JOEDY McCREARY AP Sports Writer

RALEIGH — North Carolina State has another chance to show how it would dominate the Football Championship Subdivision.

More important for the Wolfpack is making sure the offense is clicking once they play college football’s big boys again. N.C. State (1-1) plays its second game against an FCS school in an eight-day span when Gardner-Webb

visits Saturday night. Coach Tom O’Brien says the emphasis has been on fundamentals lately. The Wolfpack certainly needed to get back to basics after they opened the season with a 7-3 loss to

South Carolina in which the offense had trouble getting anything going. Things got back on track last week in a 65-7 rout of FCS member Murray State, but it gets tougher next week when Pittsburgh visits.

Terps know it won’t be easy vs MTSU By DAVID GINSBURG AP Sports Writer

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen had plenty to worry about this week as he prepared for Saturday’s game against Middle Tennessee. Friedgen was concerned about the Blue Raiders’ overall team speed. He was wary of their spread offense. He also wondered how the Terrapins would fare without cornerback Nolan Carroll, who is lost for the season with a broken leg. One item missing from Friedgen’s checklist: overconfidence. The Terrapins have no reason to expect an easy time against Middle Tennessee (1-1). A far more experienced Maryland team lost to the Blue Raiders last year, and this season the Terrapins (1-1) have not yet played particularly well. So, after falling at California 52-13 and

squeezing past James Madison 38-35 in overtime, Maryland is taking nothing for granted in the second of four straight home games. “Everybody’s ready to go,” senior tight end Tommy Galt said. “We have a tough opponent coming in and everyone’s focused on that.” The home team won each of the previous three meetings. The Terrapins are 40-12 at Byrd Stadium under Friedgen, including a 45-27 win over the Blue Raiders in 2000, but last week it took everything Maryland could muster to get by James Madison. It won’t get any easier against an offense similar to that of JMU, which rolled up 417 yards. “They’re a great team when they execute what they do,” Terps linebacker Adrian Moten said of Middle Tennessee. “They’re a fast-paced team, and I think it’s going to be a very good challenge for us.” The Blue Raiders

amassed 436 yards last week in a 31-14 rout of Memphis, including 272 in the air. Junior quarterback Dwight Dasher is coming off successive 200-yard passing games, and he’s also run for a team-high 150 yards. That does not bode well for the Terrapins, who lost Carroll for good when he snapped his tibia in the fourth quarter against JMU. “We have some concerns because they are going make it a wide open game, especially those formations with three wideouts on one side and two on the other, or two and two,” Friedgen said. “Their quarterback is a guy to be reckoned with. He’s an excellent athlete, a very good runner and an excellent passer. He had a very good game against Memphis last week. He’s a guy we really need to control.” Under different circumstances, revenge would be motivation for Maryland. Not this time. The Terrapins just want

to get a win to sustain the momentum created last week. “Their fans probably want revenge, but it is a completely different team,” Middle Tennessee coach Rick Stockstill said. “We have some guys that played in the game and remember it and some guys that did not play, and the same goes for them as well. As a player or coach you do not get caught up the revenge or payback.” Not everyone in crowd will be rooting for the home team. Blue Raiders wide receiver Gene Delle Donne, who played high school in Delaware, expects to have his own little cheering section. “I will have quite a few people there. I guess there will be about 30 family members there,” he said. “But for me or any other guy on the team, it is just another game. I have to treat it like I would if it were Clemson or Memphis or North Texas.”

football. The Blue Devils are 6-2 against the Jayhawks in basketball, the sport both schools are more noted for. Cutcliffe figures the Jayhawks are underranked. “I think they’re one of the top 15 teams in the country,” he said. “So how do you beat a top 15 team? It’s probably the most basic formula in football: take care of the ball, play great in the kicking game and find a way to make some big plays while the game progresses. The difficult thing really, is trying to make big plays against them both ways.” The Blue Devils’ biggest problem will be Kansas quarterback Todd Reesing, who was unhappy with the

way he played last week against UTEP. This game might bring out the best in Reesing for another reason as well. Duke was the only school besides Kansas to offer a scholarship to the little quarterback from Austin, Texas, who was considered by many to be too small for the big time. “It was definitely a school I looked at,” Reesing said. “It is a school that has a very good reputation academically and they were looking to build their program at the time and it was something I saw as an opportunity.” His next opportunity will be to put a licking on the Blue Devils.

DUKE, from page 1B matter. If he’s in or I’m in, we’re both pulling for each other. The only thing we want to make sure is that the offense is clicking the way it needs to be, whoever is in the game.” Whoever is in the game will be facing a defense that’s taken the quarterback down nine times in just two games — the result of a lot of hard work and dedication to improving an area that was not very good last season. “A lot of it is just fundamental play,” said Kansas coach Mark Mangino. “I thought we needed to take care of the little things in a pass rush, like rushing a half-man instead of a full-man and getting a good

jump on the ball.” The emphasis on technique seems to be paying off big for the Jayhawks (2-0). They’re averaging 4 1/2 sacks per game after averaging 2 1/2 a year ago. “We tell our defensive lineman that if your numbers are exposed to the offensive lineman, he is taught to punch those numbers and lock out,” Mangino said, before grabbing the jargon book. “But if you come off flatback and ready to dip or rip or swat or whatever move you want to use, the offensive lineman will have trouble getting his hands on those numbers.” Duke (1-1) will be facing Kansas for the first time in

Brigham Young quarterback Riley Nelson celebrates after scoring a touchdown against Tulane during the second half of last Saturday’s game. The Cougars will play host to the Seminoles of Florida State today.

No. 7 BYU plays home opener against FSU By DOUG ALDEN AP Sports Writer

PROVO, Utah — After upsetting Oklahoma to start the season, BYU already is trying to make its case for the postseason. Back in the Top 10 and unbeaten, BYU’s BCS dreams are very much alive as the seventh-ranked Cougars host Florida State on Saturday. “We’re trying to make a name for ourselves and make a name for our conference,” defensive end Jan Jorgensen said. “The only way to do that is by beating teams like Oklahoma and beating teams like Florida State.” Although the Seminoles (1-1) have stumbled through the first two games, this is still Florida State, which hasn’t started a season 1-2 in 20 years. The Cougars (2-0) are playing their home opener, three weeks after a 14-13 upset of Oklahoma and a 54-3 rout at Tulane last week. With 10 games left to play, the Cougars are leaving any speculation about a Bowl Championship Series title run to the fans. “We’ve been here before, and I think we know we can’t get ahead of ourselves,” quarterback Max Hall said. This season is the 25th anniversary of BYU’s 1984 national championship, and

the school has plans to celebrate throughout the season. If the current Cougars make a run for another title, college football’s most conservative campus could get downright chaotic. “I heard they’ve been going crazy out here when we’ve been gone,” running back J.J. Di Luigi, who ran for two touchdowns last week at the SuperDome. “I’m excited to see them in their true colors in our home stadium. It’s a great team to play, especially for our first home game.” The Seminoles have won both times they played BYU, most recently in the 2000 season opener when Florida State was the defending national champion. “I think this is the most physical BYU team that I’ve seen in the years that we’ve played them,” Florida State coach Bobby Bowden. Florida State opened this season with a crushing loss to Miami on a dropped pass that would have won it on the final play. Last week, the Seminoles rallied with two touchdowns in the final 35 seconds to defeat lowerdivision Jacksonville (Ala.) State 19-9. “It’s good timing,” quarterback Christian Ponder said. “We can put those two games in the past, and we have a great opportunity this week. This could really be a changing factor for the rest of the season.”

ECU-UNC, from page 1B seven picks. In the opener, the Pirates ran all over Appalachian State before the Mountaineers adjusted at halftime and forced Pinkney to make plays. He didn’t respond and the offense managed just 53 yards and four first downs in the second half. That left the defense on the field too long and nearly helped the Mountaineers stage a stunning comeback from a 24-0 deficit before falling 29-24. Last week, Pinkney threw for 175 yards with a touchdown and an interception, but was sacked four times in the 35-20 loss at West Virginia. In those two games, the Pirates are averaging 69 yards and five first downs while being outscored 31-2 in the second half. Those numbers should have the Tar Heels’ defense eager to take the field. It was expected to be the team’s strength with nine starters back and hasn’t disappointed, racking up 19 tackles for losses and allowing an average of 175 yards in the first two games. But North Carolina safety Deunta Williams is preparing for the old Pinkney to show up in Chapel Hill. “Tiger Woods says it best, that he always

thinks his opponent is going to make the shot,” Williams said. “So we’ve got to go out and think he’s going to give us his best shot.” Davis said his coaching staff has looked at game film from the ’07 meeting and several games last year instead of just relying on the past two games. “You see him making the same throws,” Davis said. “You see him being athletic and extending plays. He’s a frightening quarterback just because of his athleticism.” The Tar Heel offense finds itself in similar situation. The offensive line didn’t open many holes against Connecticut last weekend and the receivers are unproven, making quarterback T.J. Yates’ job more difficult. Making things tougher, the Tar Heels will be without starting senior center Lowell Dyer (shoulder) and tight end Zack Pianalto (foot). “We are kind of who we are,” Davis said. “We’re not going to recreate the wheel in three days of practice. I think it would be somewhat detrimental to our entire offensive football team to totally deviate and go in a different direction just because some guys got injured.”

Mayweather takes on UFC in fight-filled Saturday By GREG BEACHAM AP Sports Writer

LAS VEGAS — For those who keep score on the business of sports, Saturday night’s best fight isn’t in a ring in Vegas or an octagon in Dallas. It’s in living rooms, movie theaters and even iPhones, where people across the continent must choose between the best in boxing and mixed martial arts. Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s comeback fight against Juan Manuel Marquez is happening on the same night as UFC 103, headlined by a bout between former champions Rich Franklin and Vitor Belfort. The so-called “combat sports” rarely schedule major cards head-to-head, and this collision only occurred because of an injury to Mayweather that delayed his fight two months. “I don’t think going on the same night as boxing is a good thing,” said UFC president Dana White, a longtime boxing fan who gleefully points out the sport’s foibles. “When I was a kid, (Don) King and (Bob) Arum used to go head-to-

The boxers will face off on Saturday. head on pay-per-view all the time, and I hated it.” Yet for one night, there will be an extremely inexact way to measure the relative popularity of the two sports through payper-view buys. Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer, who has relentlessly plugged Mayweather as boxing’s pay-per-view king, is confident MayweatherMarquez will outsell UFC 103, perhaps 2-to-1. White isn’t so certain, and UFC’s yearly pay-per-view num-

bers dwarf boxing’s totals, largely because White believes the UFC puts on more big events with more entertaining fights. “We don’t have any problem with the UFC being on the same night, because our sport is strong,” Golden Boy owner Oscar De La Hoya said. “We don’t wish them any problems, but we have a great product in this main fight and in our sport in general. What happens (with pay-per-view buys) isn’t going to change what

WNBA Playoff Briefs

Detroit 94, Atlanta 79 DULUTH, Ga. (AP) — Deanna Nolan scored 22 points and Shavonte Zellous added 21 to help Detroit advance to the WNBA’s Eastern Conference finals for the fourth straight year with a 94-79 victory over Atlanta on Friday night. Alexis Hornbuckle had 15 points for the Shock, who swept the best-of-3 series and will face either Indiana or Washington in the next round.

we do. We do our thing, and they do theirs.” Mayweather has been quiet about this intersport matchup in recent days, but he rarely misses a chance to trash mixed martial artists as unimpressive athletes who couldn’t handle the rigors and athleticism of boxing. White is only too happy to respond. “People like to start this war between the UFC and boxing, but here’s the reality: No matter what happens on Saturday night, boxing is in trouble,” White said. “(MMA) continues to grow every year. We’re up from where we were last year (even) in this horrible economy. This thing is getting bigger. It’s not getting smaller.” And even most boxing promoters would have to agree the UFC seems to know more about how its young audience consumes media. Some of UFC 103’s preliminary bouts are available on regular cable television for the first time, hoping to entice viewers to the pay-per-view card. They also can be viewed on, Yahoo! or

an on-demand UFC cable outlet. A few particularly tech-savvy fans could even watch UFC 103 on their iPhones with a new app that will allow them to buy the card for $44.99. The 99-cent app also provides access to a small library of UFC content. But boxing isn’t sitting still, either. While the UFC is all over the small screens, Mayweather and Golden Boy went to the big screens, putting the fight in 170 movie theaters on closed circuit around the country, with prices from $12.50 to $15. The promoters and HBO have spent $20 million promoting the bout, including an effort to raise awareness of the fight with Mayweather’s fans through social networking sites. Although both sports publicly downplay the importance of this head-tohead matchup, there are a few signs that both Golden Boy and the UFC care about the final pay-perview score. With the UFC showing some of its undercard fights for free on cable, Golden Boy compiled a sur-

Ivory Latta and Angel McCoughtry had 21 points each for the Dream, who made their first playoff appearance in their second season after going 4-30 in 2008. Michelle Snow’s two free throws put Atlanta up 58-57 with 1:48 left in the third quarter. The Dream would not lead again as Detroit went on a 9-0 run, capped by Olayinka Sanni’s layup that made it 70-61 with just over 8 minutes remaining.

Storm 75, Sparks 74 SEATTLE (AP) — Camille Little stole an inbounds pass and laid it in with 5 seconds left to help Seattle even the best-of-3 WNBA Western Conference semifinals. Game 3 is Sunday in Seattle. The Sparks were up 74-70 when Sue Bird drained a 3-pointer with 10.7 seconds left, cutting the lead to one. Los Angeles called a timeout and inbounded from the sideline near midcourt. Little stole it, went under the hoop and laid it in one-handed. Lisa Leslie, whose tip-in with 27.9 seconds left snapped a 70-70 tie, and Delisha MiltonJones missed shots in the final seconds. Swin Cash led Seattle with 18 points, while Little finished with eight. Betty Lennox had 17 points to lead the Sparks.

prisingly impressive undercard to HBO’s pay-perview broadcast, putting sometime headliners Zab Judah, Chris John and Michael Katsidis on the slate. Judah has dropped off the card, but John’s WBA featherweight title bout with Rocky Juarez and the all-action Katsidis’ meeting with Vicente Escobedo are two of the better fights on recent boxing pay-per-view cards. White insists boxing’s biggest flaw is evident in its biggest fight Saturday night, with Mayweather a heavy favorite against the tough but undersized Marquez. When UFC fans reacted lukewarmly to a proposed rematch between Rich Franklin and Dan Henderson for UFC 103, White swiftly replaced Henderson with Belfort. “Nobody is asking to see this Marquez fight,” White said. “They want to see the (Mayweather-Manny) Pacquiao fight. Marquez is too small. Maybe he can beat Floyd, but the reality is probably not. We’re on the same night, but we’ll see what happens Monday when they count up the pay-per-views.” Saturday’s Games Cleveland (Sowers 6-9) at Oakland (G.Gonzalez 5-6), 4:05 p.m. Detroit (Verlander 16-8) at Minnesota (Pavano 12-11), 4:10 p.m. Boston (Lester 13-7) at Baltimore (Da.

Believe Walter E. Fauntroy, noted pastor and civil like never rights activist, to deliver Royster lectures before By LINDA GUPTON Dispatch Features Editor

We live in a world where there is doubt, confusion and uncertainties as to what the future holds. Yet, through it all, God set a sure foundation in this world when he first spoke the phrase, “Let there be!” It was faith that propelled those words to become whatever God spoke, and it is that same faith that will take us from glory to glory. True to life, if God said it, we must believe it, regardless of what the circumstances dictate. I’d like to share a story that encourages me when life seems hard. In Luke 5, Peter and some fishermen were at the Sea of Pastor Alice Galilee washClark Sallins ing their nets House of after a night of Deliverance unsuccessful fishing. Jesus was at that same shore, ministering to the crowd of people. He said to Peter, “Put out into the deep waters and let down your nets.” Can you imagine what Peter must have thought? He had been fishing all night and was at the point of sheer exhaustion. Peter also knew that from a fisherman’s point of view, it was the wrong time of day to fish and be successful. In the same way, with things going the way they are with the economy, it appears that it is the wrong season to prosper, but God’s way is not our way. Keep in mind, he is the way! “And Simon Peter answered, ‘Master, we toiled all night and caught nothing in our nets. But on the ground of your word, I will lower the nets.’ ” Luke 5: 5 Yes, Peter was willing to stand on the word of God. Sometimes in life, we have to do some things that defy all odds. When Peter stood on the word of God, he caught so many fish that he had to signal to his partners in the other boat. Needless to say, both boats were filled over capacity and began to sink. “God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can dare ask or think according to the power that is at work within us.” Ephesians 3:20 Believe in God, for he has already placed something on the inside of you that will cause you to prosper during difficult times – faith. The more that I live this life, the more that I understand that there is no way around it. We can’t allow the economy to dictate to us. It is time to believe like never before that God is truly our source. He will take care of us, but we have to believe. Yes, things are at a critical state and it seems that there is no place to turn. Yet, we have someone who is concerned with our every need. I encourage you to call on the name of the Lord today and stand on his word until he causes your way to prosper.

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

The Rev. Walter Fauntroy, 76, the retired pastor of New Bethel Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., and a noted civil rights activist, retired Congressman and human rights activist, will be this year’s speaker for the Royster lecture series at First Presbyterian Church in Henderson. Fauntroy will speak at the 11 a.m. worship service at First Presbyterian Church, 222 Young St., Henderson, on Sept. 27 and then again that evening at 7:30 p.m. A reception will follow the evening lecture. He will also speak at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 28. Child care will be provided for all the events and public is invited to attend at no cost. Fauntroy grew up the fourth of seven children in the Shaw community of northwest Washington, an area that was then, and is now, poverty stricken and plagued by crime, drugs and unemployment. The young Fauntroy found a safe haven at New Bethel Baptist Church. When he graduated second in his class at all-black Dunbar High School in 1951, the members of the church held fund-raising dinners to provide him with a college scholarship to Virginia Union University in Richmond. After graduating, he went on to earn a divinity degree from Yale University and returned to New Bethel as its pastor. Fauntroy had met Dr. Martin Luther King as a student at Virginia Union, where the two formed a fast friendship that began with a single all-night discussion of theology. In the 1960s, Fauntroy served as King’s personal representative to presi-

Rev. Walter Fauntroy dents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Baines Johnson. As director of the Washington bureau of King’s Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Fauntroy served as District of Columbia coordinator for the historic March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963, where King gave his famous “I Have A Dream” speech. Fauntroy also served as coordinator of the Selma to Montgomery Voting Rights March in 1965 as well as the Meredith Mississippi Freedom March in 1966. President Johnson appointed him vice chairman of the White House Conference to Fulfill These Rights in 1966 and vice chairman of the District of Columbia City Council in 1967. In 1971, Fauntroy was elected the first delegate in 100 years to serve the citizens of the District of Columbia as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. In that post for the next 20 years, he was a founding

member of the Congressional Black Caucus. In 1972, Fauntroy threw his hat in the ring as a candidate for the U.S. Presidency, but won only his home district as a favorite son candidate. In 1990, Fauntroy ran unsuccessfully for mayor of Washington. Undaunted, he founded his own consulting firm in 1992 to provide lobbying services for a variety of clients. Fauntroy’s stated life work has been to advocate public policy that “declares good news to the poor, that binds up the broken hearted, and sets at liberty them that are bound” in the United States and around the world. In his retirement years, Fauntroy has set out on a tour of the 84 historically black colleges and universities to identify a “Joshua Generation” of technically competent and spiritually mature young men and women whom he hopes to connect with young people in Africa to work on agricultural production, finance, investment, marketing, distribution and technology goals. Fauntroy is also assisting in the implementation of the United Nations Millennium Challenge Goal of eradicating extreme poverty in the world by 2025. Raynah Adams, a native of Henderson and chairman of the committee overseeing the Royster series, invited Fauntroy to deliver this year’s lectures. Adams met Fauntroy when both were students at Virginia Union University, then later reconnected when the two lived and worked in Washington, D.C., for more than two decades, where they were both politically active. “When I arrived in 1954 at

Virginia Union as a freshman, my counselor for that first year was a senior named Walter Fauntroy,” Adams said. Even then, as a young man, Fauntroy was a role model for him, Adams said. “He is a multitalented, God-inspired man.” Fauntroy will be the first AfricanAmerican speaker to participate in the Royster Series, which was created in 1975 by Dr. and Mrs. Thomas Royster Jr. in memory of Dr. Royster’s parents, the late Thomas Sampson Royster and his wife, Helen Borda Royster, beloved and faithful members of First Presbyterian Church. Over the years, the Royster Series has brought some of the best preaching in the nation and world to Henderson. The series seeks to host the best presentation of the claims of the Christian faith to lay people who are serious about seeking to be disciples. The series seeks to be ecumenical and bring interested people from throughout the area together in a special time of worship. Music for this year’s services will be provided by the First Presbyterian Church Chancel Choir and soloist Terri Houston during the 11 a.m. Sunday service. The First Baptist Church and First Presbyterian Church choirs will provide music for the Sunday evening service. The Southern Vance High School Ensemble under the direction of Dana Ewell will provide the music for the Monday evening service. For more information to the Royster Series lectures, call the church at 492-0156.

ATOM Ministries conference ATOM Ministries will hold its fourth annual conference Sept. 26 at 10 a.m. in The Church of the Holy Innocents’ fellowship hall where members of the ministry meet each week for Sunday morning worship service and on Thursday nights for Bible study. The fellowship hall is located at 210 Chestnut St., on the corner of Chestnut and Breckenridge, near the basketball court. The conference theme this year is “Breaking Ground, Building Relationships: Christ, Courtship, Marriage and Family.” The conference is replacing the “Just Us Girls Unity in the Community Fellowship” that is traditionally held at Henderson Middle School. This conference is not a “just us girls” conference but a “something us girls and guys need” conference. ATOM is strongly encouraging both men and women to attend this year because the theme includes subject matters that are important to the lives of both as it relates to building individuals and strengthening the family structure. Men have been present and enjoyed the past conferences but this year their presence is important for providing input from a male perspective that women can learn from on specific issues. It is also important as this conference relates to becoming active in strengthening our community structure — socially, morally, emotionally and physically (good health). ATOM is an outreach ministry and is offering this conference to the community as both a spiritual enlightening and educationally enriching outreach project. The Rev. Charisse Fain from I Believe God Outreach and Worship Center (Williamsboro community), will be mistress of ceremonies for the event. Fain is a registered nurse and director of nursing, and holds an associate degree. Marilyn Edwards from Greensboro is the keynote speaker.

and sociology. She is an entrepreneur and founder of Success and Beyond Global Enterprises in Henderson. Bridges resides in Raleigh and will give a brief presentation on the topic “Building Healthy Relationships from the Inside Out.” Guest speaker Patrece Mack has a bachelor’s degrees in sociology and social work.

THAT SCRAMBLED WORD GAME by Mike Argirion and Jeff Knurek

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

THE (Answers Monday) CROUP ROBBER EQUATE Jumbles: PLUSH Answer: How long did it take the commuter to get to work? — ABOUT AN HOUR


Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). Something has kept you from faceto-face meetings. Maybe it’s an overreliance on electronic devices, overwork or over-scheduling. Put yourself in the mix again or your social skills will atrophy. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can’t change others, but you can give them a different example. You show a way of being that’s open and accepting and, therefore, change the tone of an entire group. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you are genuinely interested in someone, it’s easy to know what to say and ask next. That’s a reason you should cultivate a curiosity about your neighbors. One of them will help you before the weekend is over. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be charming and have an easy time getting to know people. You’ll make a fantastic first impression, but that could fade if you stay too long at the fair. Remember to leave them wanting more. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Family issues arise. You’ll be reminded that just because you come from the same place doesn’t mean you’re, well, coming from the same place. If you learn information that you’re not sure you wanted to know, try not to judge. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll see progress on your pet project, though it won’t be in the same direction that you expected. Stay flexible. This new path also has many desirable options that would please you.









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



LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You speak well of your peers, even when some of them do not speak well of each other. Your act of diplomacy will set a tone for others to follow. You could save someone from really getting hurt. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Small details must be correct, or things don’t go right. For instance, you must know the combination to unlock the door, the password to get into the system and the name of the person you’re dealing with. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Certain friends of yours have far more free time than you have. Either their responsibilities are fewer or they deal with them differently. Stick to the methods that work for you, and don’t let anyone throw you off track. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Some parts of your life are organized, and others are not. Establishing an order for a messy little corner of your world will have a revitalizing effect on you and boost your self-esteem too. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Gather the bits of “research” you’ve been collecting. Business cards, shopping lists, party plans, requests to friends, tokens, coupons, prayers — they all piece together to form a zesty snapshot of your life right now. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be invited to socialize. Bring a friend along, and you’ll increase your comfort zone. But you’ll also change the dynamic and perhaps limit your freedom to get to know anyone you want at the party. Weigh the options.
