Offer of Oxford takes delivery of new fire truck $90,000 Rescue-pumper has 6,000-watt for tract light tower

Southerland high bidder so far is from Durham

By AL WHELESS Daily Dispatch Writer

OXFORD — When the Fire Department’s new rescue-pumper truck arrived at the station on McClanahan Street Monday, it weighed in at about 30,000 pounds and $546,133. Even at that hefty price, which includes a compressed-air foam suppression system for both fires and some hazardous materials, the 33 1/2-foot-long KME is not the costliest iron horse in the stable. David Cottrell, fire officer in charge of operations, said the department’s 95-foot aerial truck was bought 12 years ago for nearly $700,000. Almost needless to say, the new rescue-pumper possesses lots of mechanical refinements and accoutrements. They include a 6,000-watt light tower that can rise up to 35 feet to illuminate fire scenes at night, hose bed covers to keep lines from flying out of the vehicle into the roadway, a 15 kilowatt hydraulic-driven generator for self-sufficiency, and extra-large compartments to hold equipment. Water and all kinds of gear taken on board will probably add another five tons or so to the less-than-svelte rescue-pumper’s total poundage. The KME’s tank of 750 gallons of water can be expended in 30 seconds if necessary, can also be stretched out to last three times as long if mixed with foam. When sprayed to save lives and/or buildings, the solution can reach higher-than-usual altitudes due to less water inside the hose lines, according to Cottrell. He said the hoses themselves, when loaded with foam, are 40 percent lighter than lines

Shortage of ammo reported Gun control fear boost for sales By MARY FOSTER Associated Press Writer

NEW ORLEANS — Bullet-makers are working around the clock, seven days a week, and still can’t keep up with the nation’s demand for ammunition. Shooting ranges, gun dealers and bullet manufacturers say they have never seen such shortages. Bullets, especially for handguns, have been scarce for months because gun enthusiasts are stocking up on ammo, in part because they fear President Barack Obama and the Democratic-controlled Congress will pass antigun legislation — even though nothing specific has been proposed and the president last month signed a law allowing people to carry loaded guns in

Oxford Fire Department’s new rescue-pumper truck sits in front of the station on McClanahan Street Wednesday afternoon. The truck includes a compressed-air foam suppression system for both fires and some hazardous materials. containing only water. A gallon of H2O pushes the needle to 8.2 pounds on a weighing-scale. The foam can be used inside a structure, as well as outside. Manufactured at a plant in Nesquehoning, Pa., the construction process began in mid-January and was completed about 2 1/2 weeks ago, Cottrell said. He explained that the seller — Slagle’s Fire Equipment of South Boston, Va. — checked out the truck thoroughly before making the delivery. The third pumper in the city’s fire-fighting arsenal won’t make its debut in neighborhoods or at business locations until this coming weekend, Cottrell said, when all of the engineers will have finished learning to drive it. No grants were used to acquire the truck, according to the fire officer. He said the city purchased it with capital outlay funds. Contact the writer at awheless@ hendersondispatch.com.

The flurry of counter purchase offers for Southerland’s Mill Pond continues with submitted “as is” bids of $73,550 from D. Randall Cloninger on Sept. 9 and $90,000 from O. William Faison on Sept. 15. Faison, the apparent highbidder at this point, lives in Durham. Cloninger lives at 338 Pool Rock Shore Lane in Henderson. The current 10-day round of upset bidding for the property in the southeastern part of Vance County will end Sept. 29 at 5 p.m., according to City Clerk Pam Glover. She said Wednesday that the next round will begin after the two bids are legally advertised in The Daily Dispatch. The city bought the property in 1952 for $51,000. On July 27, the City Council voted 7-1 for a resolution of intent to sell the property, which consists of 79.43 acres. The site was a former water supply reservoir for the city, with city-owned land across the road from the pond having once been proposed as a site for a wastewater treatment plant. Earlier bids for the property have come from Bier Haus, $70,000 and $55,000; Robert Southerland, whose family once owned the land, $63,500 and $43,000; Elissa Yount, $60,000 and $50,000. The city acquired the property in 1952 for $51,000. Contact the writer at awheless@hendersondispatch.com.

Jason Gregory, who manages Gretna Gun Works just outside of New Orleans, has been building his personal supply of ammunition for months. His goal is to have at least 1,000 rounds for each of his 25 weapons. “I call it the Obama effect,” said Gregory, 37, of Terrytown, La. “It always happens when the Democrats get in office. It happened with Clinton and Obama is even stronger for gun control. Ammunition will be the first step, so I’m stocking up while I can.” So far, the new administration nor Congress has not been markedly antigun. Obama has said he respects Second Amendment rights, but favors “common sense” on gun

laws. Still, worries about what could happen persist. Demand has been so heavy at some Walmarts, a limit was imposed on the amount of ammo customers can buy. The cutoff varies according to caliber and store location, but sometimes as little as one box — or 50 bullets — is allowed. At Barnwood Arms in Ripon, Calif., sales manager Dallas Jett said some of the shortages have leveled off, but 45-caliber rounds are still hard to find. “We’ve been in business for 32 years and I’ve been here for 10 and we’ve never seen anything like it,” Jett said. “Coming out of Christmas everything started to dry up and it was that way all through the spring and summer. Nationwide, distributors are scrambling to fill orders from retailers. “We used to be able to order 50 or 60 cases and get them in three or four days easy, it was never an

issue,” said Vic Grechniw of Florida Ammo Traders, a distributor in Tampa, Fla. “Now you are really lucky if you can get one case a month. It just isn’t there because the demand is way up.” A case contains 500 or 1,000 bullets. At Jefferson Gun Outlet and Range in Metairie just west of New Orleans, owner Mike Mayer is worried individuals are going to start buying by the case. “If someone wants to shoot on the weekend you have to worry about having the ammunition for them. And I know some people aren’t buying to use it at the range, they’re taking it home and hoarding it.” With demand, prices have also risen. “Used to be gold, but now lead is the most expensive metal,” said Donald Richards, 37, who was stocking up at the Jefferson store. “And worth every penny.”

Silver Alert issued for missing Vance woman The N.C. Center for Missing Persons has issued a Silver Alert for a missing and endangered Vance County woman. According to the alert, Natasha “Pecan” DixonParker, 39, is believed to be suffering from dementia or some other cognitive impairment.

She was last seen wearing a white blouse with a gold pen stripe and brown

ay yd r e Ev

pants. She is black, is about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds. Her hair is black, and her eyes are brown. Anyone with information about Dixon-Parker should call Detective D.R. Thomas at the Vance County Sheriff’s Office, (252) 738-2200.

“That is going to cause an upswing in ammunition sales,” said Larry Keane, senior vice president of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, a trade association representing about 5,000 members. “Without bullets a gun is just a paper weight.” The shortage for sportsmen is different than the scarcity of ammo for some police forces earlier this year, a dearth fueled by an increase in ammo use by the military in Iraq and Afghanistan. “We are working overtime and still can’t keep up with the demand,” said Al Russo, spokesman for North Carolina-based Remington Arms Company, which makes bullets for rifles, handguns and shotguns. “We’ve had to add a fourth shift and go 24-7. It’s a phenomenon that I have not seen before in my 30 years in the business.” Americans usually buy about 7 billion rounds

CHARLOTTE (AP) — Bill and Melinda Gates got a first-hand look at North Carolina schools and colleges on Wednesday after beginning what they called a “two-day learning trip.” The Microsoft billionaire and his wife met with teachers, students and administrators at West Charlotte High School to talk about how the school is using data to track student progress and identify effective teaching methods. “They literally are doing assessments every two weeks and the data is available the next morning,” Melinda Gates told The Associated Press in an interview afterward. “They are really using data to measure those kids and it’s starting to drive outcomes at a school that had been underperforming before. That’s a key part of what we’re trying to do.” The couple later met with dozens of students from several North Carolina colleges at Central Piedmont Community College. Students did most of the talking as the couple questioned them on their experiences with developmental courses, online learning and how they were paying for college. Students represented

Members of the Etowah-Horse Shoe Fire Department rescue a family who drove through high water Wednesday on Banner Farm Road in Etowah and got stuck. According to the North Carolina Highway Patrol, Diane Marie Ferrari was driving with her son and mother to take her son to school. Ferrari, who passed three high water and road closed signs, was charged with careless and reckless driving. The road, which is near the French Broad River, was under water due to the river flooding from three days of heavy rain.

N.C. state senator to take highway safety position By GARY D. ROBERTSON Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH — State Sen. David Weinstein will step down from the General Assembly to become director of the Governor’s Highway Safety Program early next month, a program spokeswoman said Wednesday — the latest in a line of departures from the Legislature this year. Weinstein, D-Robeson, will resign from the seat he’s held since 1997 effective Sept. 30 to head the program best known for initiatives such as “Booze It & Lose It” and “Click It or Ticket.” Weinstein, 73, a retired merchant and former mayor of Lumberton, will assume his new post Oct. 5. His salary hasn’t yet been set, but predecessor Glenn Jernigan made about $92,000, program spokeswoman Beth Horner said.

The seven-term senator had made no secret of wanting a new job. He was interested in becoming chairman of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission, but Gov. Beverly Perdue named someone else last week. Weinstein, who serves at the governor’s pleasure, didn’t return phone calls to his Lumberton home and legislative office. Weinstein will become the seventh state lawmaker out of 170 elected last November to vacate their seat this year, either by resignation or death. On Sunday, Rep. Ty Harrell, D-Wake, resigned in the midst of a State Board of Elections audit of his campaign finances. Democrats in Hoke and Robeson counties, which comprise the 13th Senate District, will nominate a replacement to serve out Weinstein’s two-year term. He had said earlier this year

he was unlikely to run again in 2010. While in the Legislature, he pushed legislation to double legislators’ terms to four years and to tighten financial controls on nonprofit economic booster groups in the state. He also was a booster of the state’s equine industry. Jernigan, the program’s director the past six years, will remain at the agency as a liaison to law enforcement officers. The program creates public service announcements aimed at reducing traffic injuries and fatalities and distributed more than $9 million in federal highway safety grants to state and local agencies.

N.C. spill dumps almost 16 million gallons of sewage RALEIGH (AP) — The largest sewage spill in North Carolina in at least a decade went unreported for about 20 days until an environmentalist notified federal investigators. The Yadkin Riverkeeper notified the Environmental Protection Agency that millions of gallons of untreated

wastewater had flowed into a tributary that feeds into High Rock Lake. The EPA is conducting a criminal investigation of the almost 16-million gallon spill, which is believed to have begun July 16 at the lake and continued until Aug. 4. In addition, one employee of Thomasville’s wastewater

treatment plant has resigned. The city initially reported the spill on Aug. 3, saying 385,000 gallons of untreated wastewater had been dumped. The estimate jumped to almost 16 million gallons when the city submitted a revised estimate to state environmental officials in September.

EPA adds two N.C. spots to list of hazardous sites RALEIGH (AP) — Two North Carolina waste sites have been added to a federal list of hazardous sites now eligible for cleanup funding. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said Wednesday that Ore Knob Mine in Laurel Springs

and GMH Electronics in Roxboro have been added to the National Priorities List of Superfund Sites. The agency said the locations are two of 11 sites around the country and Puerto Rico that pose risks to human health and the environment.

The EPA also added Kerr-McGee Chemical Corp. in Navassa to a list of 10 proposed sites. The Superfund is a federal program that cleans up uncontrolled hazardous sites. The 11 added sites are now part of more then 1,270 sites around the country.

Daily Meditation I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. Beloved, thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the brethren, and to strangers; Which have borne witness of thy charity before the church: whom if thou bring forward on their journey after a godly sort, thou shalt do well: Because that for his name’s sake they went forth, taking nothing of the Gentiles. We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be fellowhelpers to the truth. 3 John 1:4-8

Our Opinion

Gupton’s health, and a city’s political health Former City Councilman Bobby Gupton’s medically forced withdrawal from his bid to regain Henderson’s Ward 2 at-large seat is disappointing on two counts. First, it’s unfortunate to hear that Mr. Gupton’s health — a worsening bout with vertigo, to be specific — has not been good. We extend get-well wishes to Mr. Gupton. Second, we regret the loss of a candidate who always prompted Henderson’s population to talk — and to think — about what might be best for the community. We’re never ones to celebrate an unopposed candidate for public office. While we have the utmost respect for City Council members Gary Daeke, Lonnie Davis and Brenda Peace — and it can be argued that their lack of opposition this year signifies a community that is satisfied with their work — it’s best for voters to have a choice. And thankfully, because the Ward 2 at-large race was a three-man contest, with political newcomer Lowell West also filing as a challenger, voters still have an alternative if they don’t wish to send Mike Inscoe back to the council chambers for two more years. (In fact, at this late date, Gupton’s name remains on the ballot and you can still choose him, if you wish. He just won’t accept the office if he wins.) But the point is, while oftentimes people who believe they have the best interests of the community in mind like to complain about all the divisions between us, a little bit of thoughtful disagreement never hurt anybody. Bobby Gupton gives a lot of thought to what he believes, and he says what he thinks. Those are valuable qualities in a political candidate. Whether you agree with his positions or not, at least there’s no guessing as to what those positions might be. Unopposed candidates and single-mindedness among government officials could only be appropriate in a utopian community where nothing ever goes wrong and quality of life couldn’t possibly be improved. Since Henderson doesn’t qualify (and what town would?) we hope people like Bobby Gupton never stop thinking about whether government is doing the best it can, and deciding to run for office to see if they can change their town for the better.

Quotable “Simply put, it is past time to talk about starting negotiations — it is time to move forward. We cannot continue the same pattern of taking tentative steps forward and then stepping back.” — President Barack Obama, displaying an unusual level of public frustration as he prepared to sit down with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to relaunch Mideast peace negotiations. “America has come in a new, hypocritical face. Smiling at us, but stabbing us with the same dagger that Bush used. God willing, your end will be at the hands of the Muslim nation, so that the world and history will be free of your crimes and lies.” — Al-Qaida No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri, addressing President Barack Obama at the end of a new 106-minute long video marking the eighth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Twenty-five years ago NBC took a risk. In late September, the network launched a halfhour situation comedy about a prosperous, well-educated family whose children actually listened to their parents without a lot of wisecracks. And, oh, by the way, the family also happened to be black. Young people today may have a hard time imagining it, but that was a big deal at the time. ABC had turned the show down, but NBC, which was lagging in the ratings, was a bit more desperate. They won. “The Cosby Show” lasted eight years, five of them as the No. 1 sitcom in the Nielsen ratings. Changing times give the show’s anniversary special significance as we ponder how much the show helped change our times. The program is often credited with enriching the image of the African American family in the eyes of the world. I think it also deserves credit for reaffirming the value of the traditional American family unit, regardless of race or ethnicity, although with a more equal-partner role for the wife than used to be the typical case in 1950s sit-coms. Heathcliff Huxtable was a doctor. Clair Huxtable was a lawyer. I don’t recall seeing her in an apron, although it is not hard to imagine Cliff wearing one, if only to offer a visible argument for partnership in a successful marriage.

Before Cosby brought us the Huxtable family, networks had little interest in reviving the too-perfectly idealized strongdad/omniscient mom/obedient kids format of “Father Knows Best” or “Leave It to Beaver.” But repackaging those old-school middleclass family Clarence set-ups with a middlePage class black Tribune Media family sent Services a reassuring social message that subtly grabbed viewers’ hearts: The American Dream was not for whites only. Cosby sounds less grandiose when talking about his achievement, but no less ambitious. He simply didn’t like the sitcoms TV offered. “It had nothing to do with the color of them — I just didn’t like any of them,” he said in a recent interview with the Web site The Root. “I wanted to take the house back. I felt that on all these other shows the children owned the house. Now in real life, I have five children and (my wife and I) aren’t letting people go around the house the way the writers were writing for these kids.” The show offered a glimpse

of the self-help initiatives for which Cosby has more recently crusaded across the country, despite critics — like Georgetown Prof. Michael Eric Dyson, author of “Is Bill Cosby Right? (Or Has the Black Middle Class Lost Its Mind?)” — who complain that he lets structural racism off the hook. But if Cosby’s view is conservative, as Ta-Nehisi Coates, a blogger with The Atlantic, put it recently, “he’s much closer to the conservatism of black nationalism than to the conservatism of Shelby Steele.” He does not reject outside help for the black poor. He does call attention to what blacks at all levels of social need should do to help one another. It is inevitable that we also wonder how much “The Cosby Show” helped to prepare the way for President Barack Obama’s election. Cosby plays that down. “You can’t get elected because of somebody you see on TV,” he told The Root. But he was being modest about media power. Since John F. Kennedy narrowly beat Richard M. Nixon in 1960, no one has gotten elected president without paying due respect to the selling power of TV images. I think President Obama owes a cultural debt to the Huxtables. What better way for the Obamas to calm voter anxieties than to present the nation with a real-life version of America’s most

beloved TV family. I also think the anti-Cosby backlash has been overblown. Having interviewed Cosby several times over the years and witnessed him work the standing-room-only crowds at his call-outs, his rhetoric resonates with the social conservatism of black barbershops, churches and backyard barbecues that looks for allies in the battle against social dysfunction. In similar fashion, he broadened the vision that we Americans have of ourselves. Amid all of our divisions over other issues, he tapped the fundamental values that most of us share. He reaffirmed the value of nuclear families at time when black Americans in particular were suffering from rising crime, violence, drug addiction and out-of-wedlock births. Cosby tapped the old-school values that still make up a common culture in our otherwise diverse country. He made mainstream Americans more comfortable with the idea of a black family on their television sets and, eventually in the White House. Cosby says he enjoys what he calls, “The Obama Show.” He should. He helped to produce it.

Letters to the Editor Independent auto dealers back ‘right to repair’ legislation To the editor: The National Independent Automobile Dealers Association strongly supports the Motor Vehicle Owners’ Right to Repair Act (HR 2057) and urges Congress to pass the legislation on behalf of its over 20,000 members. As a national trade association representing independent automobile dealers, we share the belief that specialized equipment, information and materials should be available to all repair facilities who wish to pursue service and repair opportunities, and should not be restricted to just those who are affiliated with a manufacturer.

Newspaper profitability: Is it critical to our democracy? Today, as you read this column in your favorite newspaper, I hope that you can appreciate the irony of where I am choosing to voice my opposition to President Obama’s expressed “happiness” to look at proposals to provide federal funding to help “rescue” the struggling print segment of the Fourth Estate. Just what we need … more of our tax dollars going to pick and choose segments of the public sector that the administration deems worthy of assistance. I do agree with President Obama when he states that good journalism is “critical to the health of our democracy.” While I think we can all agree that the media find maintaining neutrality and hiding biases difficult in many circumstances, one cannot discount their role in keeping this nation’s representatives in check and sometimes even holding them accountable for their actions. The essential nature of a free press was so recognized by our Founding Fathers that it was enshrined in the Bill of Rights. But these views on the importance of journalism in a free society does not mean I am willing to submit or subscribe to the theory that we can abandon the principles of a free market in order to pick and choose select private industries deemed worthy of receiving federal dollars to bolster their chances of surviving the ever-changing marketplace. Today, many of our nation’s longest standing print outlets are struggling to garner advertisers and subscribers. The impact of the challenging economy on advertising budgets and the ease and freshness of online news

sources have put traditional newspapers in a challenging position. However, rather than arrogantly assuming government dollars may be the key to their continued viability, we should step back and take note of the countless periodicals that are withstanding these unfriendly chalMichael lenges to their profitability Reagan by exploring Distributed by new, creative Cagle Cartoons ways to remain viable during times of economic hardship and increasing competition from the online community. We are not facing the end of the press, but a necessary and perhaps even desirable evolution in the particular form and style of our media sources. Journalism is diversifying, not dying. This is the free market at work. But this administration and this Congress seem to think that government is the solution — the only answer. The answer to what? To help struggling financial institutions as well as the auto and newspaper industries gain an advantage? But what industry, what sector is next? Perhaps they should next look at helping revive the now-defunct Arena Football League? As we look out over our nation as it attempts to climb out from the devastating economic morass of the last 18 months, we can still see so many Americans

I do not, however, feel guilty about it. I realize that I have been grieving for several years already, as I knew this time would be coming. In many ways it is as if I am in the final stage of the process even though my husband’s death has only just occurred.

DEAR ABBY: I am responding to “Alone But Happy in Canada” (July 12), who feels guilty because she feels relieved following the death of her husband from a long, difficult illness. Everyone grieves differently, but I don’t think grieving a loved one’s loss BEFORE his or her death is uncommon. I’ve known several people who watched loved ones wither away into helpless, needy and miserable individuals. I can’t think of one who didn’t feel the same as “Alone But Happy.” I have begun referring to it as “grieveas-you-go guilt.” Dear A person grieves Abby through Universal Press the decline Syndicate and eventual demise of a beloved mate, and when she fails to feel sadness, she substitutes guilt where she believes her grief should be. But actually she has been grieving all along, and needs to acknowledge that fact. Only then will she be able to enjoy not only her clean house, but her clear conscience as well. — AZY IN WASHINGTON DEAR AZY: You have keen insight.

Braves win again Atlanta continues surge for Wild Card lead with win

Cox to retire as Braves manager after next season By MIKE FITZPATRICK AP Baseball Writer

NEW YORK — After 50 years in baseball, Bobby Cox figured the only way he would ever give up managing was to pick a specific time and announce it publicly. So that’s what he did Wednesday, revealing his plans to retire as manager of the Atlanta Braves after next season. Now comes the hard part:

sticking to it. “There is a little bit of relief once you come to grips with announcing it,” Cox said. “I’ve never lost the love to manage, period. But you have to make a decision. At my age, you Cox have to make a decision. Somebody a little younger can start up.”

The 68-year-old Cox, a fourtime Manager of the Year, agreed to a one-year contract extension for 2010, the Braves announced before Wednesday night’s game against the New York Mets. He will start a five-year consulting agreement to advise the team in baseball operations after he steps down as manager. “I’ll believe it when I see it,” Braves slugger Chipper Jones said.

During an illustrious career on the bench, Cox has guided Atlanta to 14 consecutive postseason appearances (1991-2005) and the 1995 World Series title. “They asked me to come back, and I said I would do it for one more year, and we’ll announce the retirement along with it. It’s the only way I think I’m ever going to walk away from the game, is to go ahead and say I’m going to, and then I’ve got to,” Cox said. “There’s no turning

In a season full of ties, Northern Vance added another to its record after their 5-5 match at Franklin Academy (8-3-3) Wednesday. Northern fought back from a 3-0 deficit to tie it at 3 going into the half. They held a 5-4 lead until the final minute, when Franklin Academy knotted it up with a goal on a free kick. Munn Justin Munn came up big for the Vikings, scoring the hat trick with three goals. Kevin Byrom and Blake Wade each had a goal and an assist. Ethan Byrom, Bryson Faulkner and Tate Frazier each had assists. Northern is 4-4-4 on the season, and they host conference opponent Orange Monday at 7 p.m.

Warren Co. defense holds strong in 2-0 losing effort By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor

Southern Vance controlled the tempo for virtually the entire match Wednesday against former conference rival Warren County, but only had two goals to show for it. The Warren County defense held strong, but the Eagles couldn’t get much of an offense going as they were shut out by the Raiders 2-0. Southern improves to 5-1-1 on the season, while Warren

County falls to 0-4 under firstyear coach Trevor Brown. Brown was an assistant under coach Bill Overby last season. “I’m very happy with the way we came out and played tonight. We took it to a very good team,” he said. “We played good soccer, and we probably played the best we’ve played all year long.” After a few minutes of backand-forth possessions, Southern managed a shot at minute six that narrowly missed. At

minute 12, a Raider shot was negated by an offsides call. Eagle goalie Adam Aycock made a save at minute 17, knocking the ball just over the crossbar. It was the first of many saves for Aycock, as the Raiders peppered Warren County with goal attempts all night. “Adam comes up big in just about every game. We’ve just kind of come to expect it of him,” said Brown. “He played Please see RAIDERS WIN, page 3B

CHARLOTTE — Raymond Felton signed Charlotte’s oneyear, $5.5 million qualifying offer on Wednesday after the restricted free agent was unable to come to teams on a long-term contract. The move means the Bobcats starting point guard will report on time to training camp next week, then become an unrestricted free agent next summer. “Raymond didn’t want this to be a distraction to his teammates or to the organization going into training camp. So we just decided it was time,” agent Kevin Bradbury said. “Raymond wanted to move on. He didn’t want this to linger anymore.” Felton averaged 14.2 points and 6.7 assists last season and won over new coach Larry Brown, who said keeping Felton was a top offseason priority. Felton also repeatedly said he wanted to stay in Charlotte and sign a long-term deal, but the two sides were never close. Bobcats general manager Rod Higgins met with Bradbury in Las Vegas in July, but the talks ended quickly with the two sides were far apart on money. Bradbury said discussions resumed in the last couple of weeks, but a deal wasn’t imminent. Bradbury declined to reveal the contract numbers they wanted, but said Felton holds no hard feelings toward the organization. The Bobcats made few moves this offseason and are under orders from owner Bob Johnson not to reach the luxury tax threshold of $69.9 million in payroll. “There were just too many factors involved and Raymond decided that he wanted to focus on basketball,” Bradbury said. “He’s got big hopes for this team this year.” Felton will be under pressure to help Charlotte reach the playoffs for the first time — and hold off D.J. Augustin for the starting job this season. The Bobcats used the ninth pick in the 2008 draft on Augustin, but Felton kept his job in 2008-09. Brown was impressed with the 6-foot-1 Felton’s toughness and eagerness to learn, but his shooting remained a weakness. He’s shot less than 40 percent from the field in his four-year career, and made less than 30 percent of his 3-point shots in each of the last two seasons. The Bobcats were the NBA’s lowest-scoring team last season when they went 35-47. They’ll face a difficult task reaching the playoffs this season in the improved Eastern Conference. Felton will now become part of what could be the biggest free-agent class in NBA history next summer with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and others. The Bobcats report to training camp Monday. The first workout is a day later.

By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Sports Writer

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Brett Favre said Wednesday he believes the fines handed down by the NFL for his absence from last year’s New York Jets injury reports were “very unfair.” Favre was asked by reporters for the first time about the $125,000 in penalties levied on the Jets organization ($75,000), general manager Mike Tannenbaum ($25,000), and former head coach Eric Mangini ($25,000). “I just think it’s wrong,” Favre said. “They did everything that I felt they were supposed to.” Favre earlier this month revealed the process he and the Jets went

through in assessing the health of his throwing arm last December. He played through a torn biceps tendon, and his performance suffered. The NFL investigated and announced the fines last week for Mangi- Favre ni’s failure to list Favre on the injury report. Favre said he discussed his condition with the Jets last year because he wanted the team to know he wasn’t at his best. “I felt like maybe there were some throws where I could’ve played better because of this injury,” Favre said. “I just wanted to let them know that.

I never asked them to put me on the injury report. I can’t tell you how many times I probably should’ve been on the injury report. I practiced. I played. I knew I was going to play. “I wanted them to know that I wasn’t too proud to play just to play.” Favre said he told Tannenbaum and Mangini, who now coaches the Browns, that he was sorry about the way the season went sour. Favre led the Jets to an 8-3 start and first place in the AFC East, but he threw nine interceptions down the stretch and the team lost four of its last five games to miss the playoffs. Favre retired, was released by the Jets, then came back for a second

time to join the Vikings. The NFL has stepped up policing of the injury report, and the penalties for the Jets were an opportunity for the league to stress the importance of following the rules. Tannenbaum acknowledged recently that Favre should have been listed as “probable” down the stretch. Favre last week set what the NFL believes to be the all-time record for consecutive games started, with 271. He hurt both hands in that game against the Detroit Lions, including the nail on his right thumb being bent all the way back. “It doesn’t feel good, but that was it,” Favre said. “It was a pretty good shot I took, but that was it.”

Russia’s richest man agrees on deal to buy Nets By TOM CANAVAN AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK — Russia’s richest man has a deal to buy a controlling interest in the New Jersey Nets and nearly half of a project to build a new arena in Brooklyn. Mikhail Prokhorov’s Onexim Group announced the deal Wednesday with Forest City Ratner Companies and Nets Sports and Entertainment. They say they have signed a letter of intent to create a partnership for the development of the Atlantic Yards Project. According to the agreement, entities to be formed by Onexim Group will invest $200 million and make certain funding commitments to acquire 80 percent of the NBA team, 45 percent of the arena project and the right to purchase up to 20 percent of the Atlantic Yards Development Company, which will develop the non-arena real estate. Prokhorov would be the first non-North American NBA owner. NBA commissioner David Stern praised the

move, saying it will help the NBA expand globally and ensures that the Nets, whose current principal owner is Bruce Ratner, will have a new arena. “Interest in basketball and the NBA is growing rapidly on a global basis, and we are especially encouraged by Mr. Prokhorov’s commitment to the Nets and the opportunity it presents to continue Prokhorov the growth of basketball in Russia,” Stern said in a statement. The NBA will review the proposal, and the deal must be approved by three-fourths of the NBA’s board of governors. Ratner and Prokhorov said in the joint statement they hope to have the sale completed by the first quarter of 2010. “I have a long-standing passion for basketball and pursuing interests that forward the development of the sport in Russia,” Prokhorov said

in a statement. “I look forward to becoming a member of the NBA and working with Bruce and his talented team to bring the Nets to Brooklyn.” Stern said the league was looking forward to the Nets’ move to a state-of-the-art facility in Brooklyn. The team currently plays at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, N.J., a building that opened about 30 years ago. Prokhorov, who owns a share in the Russian basketball team CSKA, was ranked as the country’s richest man in the Russian edition of Forbes, with an estimated fortune of $9.5 billion. He has weathered the global economic crisis better than many of his wealthy compatriots by cashing out of some lucrative assets before the downturn battered commodity markets. According to Forbes, his fortune shrank by some $7 billion — a breathtaking loss by most standards, but mild in comparison with some Russian oligarchs. Roman Abramovich, who as owner of Chelsea is Russia’s

best-known international sports magnate, lost more than $9 billion, and Oleg Deripaska, a rival in Russia’s metals business, lost around $35 billion. Prokhorov’s interest in basketball isn’t only as a spectator. The 44-yearold was an avid player in his high school and college years. He shot to prominence in the murky and chaotic early years of privatization deals that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union. In 1993, the Onexim bank that he headed acquired Norilsk Nickel, one of Russia’s huge but lumbering and inefficient industrial conglomerates. Prokhorov’s stewardship saw Norilsk become more efficient and profitable. He resigned as Norilsk chairman in 2007 and sold off his shares for $7.5 billion, but retains substantial interests in other metals companies through Onexim, including shares in gold miner Polyus and Rusal, the world’s largest aluminum company. Onexim’s other interests include real estate, insurance and energy.

Cox said his role as adviser likely will include visiting Braves farm clubs to offer advice, evaluations and perhaps even handson instruction. He said it’s a job he’s excited about. Still, many in baseball have a hard time imagining anyone besides ol’ No. 6 in the Braves’ dugout. “He may change his mind. Bobby loves the game. It’s in his blood,” La Russa said in Houston before his Cardinals played the Astros. “He always had his team ready to play.” Mets manager Jerry Manuel called Cox “an icon in the sport.” “Managers look to try to attain that level of status that he has,” Manuel said. “I think that’s unfortunate for the Braves — probably fortunate for everybody else in the division.

“He’s had a tremendous, tremendous run. He has really set the bar tremendously high over there. So anybody that steps in there will have some big, big shoes to fill as far as stability and strategy.” Cox said the person he consulted most about the decision was his wife, Pam, and he acknowledged she was happy about it. “She’s been after me for quite awhile,” Cox said with a smile. ——— AP Baseball Writer Ronald Blum in New York, AP Sports Writers Chris Duncan in Houston and Howard Fendrich in Washington, Associated Press Writer Jonathan Landrum Jr. in Atlanta, and AP freelance writer Chuck Murr in Cleveland contributed to this report.

COX, from page 1B “He’s one of the greatest — not only managers, but people,” Los Angeles Dodgers manager Joe Torre said in Washington. “He’s a Hall of Famer.” Cox began Wednesday with 2,408 regular-season wins as a manager, fourth behind Connie Mack (3,731), John McGraw (2,763) and Tony La Russa (2,550). Cox and Joe McCarthy are the only managers with six 100-win regular seasons. “Bobby’s one of the best ever,” Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland said in Cleveland. Braves general manager Frank Wren said he won’t start thinking about a successor for Cox until an appropriate time next season. Both men said Cox will have input. “He’s been the one constant through the entire run that we’ve had over the last 20 years,” said Jones, who has played for Cox his entire career. “It’ll be a sad day, a sad day when he leaves.” Still feisty, Cox has been ejected seven times this season, extending his major league record to 150. “What you can always say about Bobby is that he always gets the best out of his players and that he’s a class act,” umpire Ed Rapuano said in Cleveland. “You could toss him, but the next day all was forgotten.” Jones said the Braves will have added incen-

tive next season to send Cox out a winner. But the 37-year-old third baseman added that he’s not sure he’ll stick around long enough to play for a different manager. “I’m just glad he’ll be around for one more year,” Jones said. Wren said the agreement was reached last weekend while the Braves were playing Philadelphia, but Cox didn’t want an announcement to take the focus off that series. The team had decided to reveal the news when it returned home to Atlanta next week, but Wren said all the public speculation and false information about Cox’s future persuaded the club to make an announcement Wednesday. Cox’s entire coaching staff will be retained next season, too. “We know we’re growing older. I know Bobby feels like he’s still capable. His mind is as good today as it will be five years from now. But there’s a demand of pressure and energy on his job. We all come to that point,” Braves president John Schuerholz said at a Turner Field news conference in Atlanta. “He’s comfortable with this. It’s his plan. He’s at peace managing a team next season to a championship level,” Schuerholz added. “He’s handled the highs and lows better than any other manager in baseball I’ve ever seen.”

NL Roundup

Hudson pitches Braves past Mets Braves 5, Mets 2 NEW YORK (AP) — Tim Hudson pitched six effective innings for his second win since major elbow surgery and the Atlanta Braves beat the New York Mets 5-2 on Wednesday night to complete a three-game sweep. Hours after announcing Bobby Cox will retire as manager following next season, the Braves won for the 11th time in 13 games. Clinging to scant playoff hopes, Atlanta began the day five games behind Colorado for the NL wild card. At press time, the Rockies trailed San Diego 6-3 in the eighth inning. Adam LaRoche had three hits and two RBIs. Late substitute Kelly Johnson also knocked in two runs for the Braves, who won their seventh straight road game and finished 13-5 against New York this year. It was their first sweep on the road against the Mets since July 2003 at Shea Stadium. Marlins 7, Phillies 6 MIAMI (AP) — Pinchhitter Brett Carroll capped a two-run rally against closer Brad Lidge in the ninth inning with an RBI single, giving the Florida Marlins a 7-6 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night. Jorge Cantu tied it with a single off Lidge (0-8), who blew his major league-leading 11th save opportunity. Lidge entered to start the ninth and promptly gave up a double to Ross Gload, who advanced to third on Chris Coghlan’s

28th save. The Cardinals had 25 cases of champagne waiting in the clubhouse, but the bottles will remain corked for at least another day. St. Louis can clinch on their day off Thursday if the Cubs lose the opener of a weekend series in San Francisco. AP Photo/Kathy Willens

Atlanta’s Tim Hudson delivers in the first inning against New York Wednesday. fly out. Lidge struck out pinch-hitter John Baker before walking Hanley Ramirez. Cantu then lined a single to left-center to score Gload and make it 6-all. Carroll fell behind 0-2 before singling to center to score Ramirez. Dan Meyer (3-1) pitched an inning of scoreless relief.

Astros 3, Cardinals 0 HOUSTON (AP) — Bud Norris and the Houston Astros put the St. Louis Cardinals’ celebration on ice. The Astros’ 24-yearold rookie shut out the Cardinals for the second time and St. Louis missed a chance to capture the NL Central in a 3-0 loss to the Astros on Wednesday night. The magic number for St. Louis dropped to one when the Cubs lost in Milwaukee before this game ended. But Norris (6-3) pitched six shutout innings and Jose Valverde pitched a scoreless ninth for his

Brewers 3, Cubs 2 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Prince Fielder hit his 42nd homer to give him a majors-best 131 RBIs and rookie Chris Narveson struck out 10 for his first win as a starter, helping the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Chicago Cubs 3-2 on Wednesday night. Jody Gerut homered for the Brewers, who avoided a three-game sweep but had been eliminated from the postseason on Tuesday. Chicago is still mathematically alive, but St. Louis will win the NL Central title with a victory or another Cubs’ loss. Narveson (2-0) was designated for assignment by the Brewers in July, but returned last month and was sharp into the sixth inning in his third career start. Narveson’s only mistake came when Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija (1-3) led off the sixth inning with a homer, his first career hit. Nationals 5, Dodgers 4 WASHINGTON (AP) — Andre Ethier booted pinch-hitter Pete Orr’s fly to right field in the ninth inning, allowing Justin Maxwell to score, and the Washington Nationals

averted their 100th loss of the season with a 5-4 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night. Maxwell started the decisive rally with a single down the left-field line off James McDonald (5-5) to open the ninth. Alberto Gonzalez bunted Maxwell to second and Maxwell stole third before Jorge Padilla walked. Orr, who was 2 for 13 as a pinch hitter, hit a fly to medium right and the ball bounced off the glove Ethier as he backtracked and Maxwell scored. Orr was credited with a sacrifice fly and Ethier was given an error on the play.

Reds 12, Pirates 2 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Joey Votto went 4 for 5 and scored three runs, Homer Bailey allowed two runs in six innings and the Cincinnati Reds continued the Pittsburgh Pirates’ losing with a 12-2 win Wednesday night. Brandon Phillips, Scott Rolen, Jay Bruce, Laynce Nix and Corky Miller each had two RBIs for the Reds, who have won seven of nine. The Pirates are 3-22 in their past 25, having lost five in a row. They have allowed 33 runs the past three games. Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen had two hits and scored a run. Since beating the Pirates at PNC Park Aug. 23, Bailey (6-5) is 4-1 with a 1.99 ERA — three of those victories coming against Pittsburgh. He allowed four hits and three walks.

(AP) — Shavonte Zellous scored 23 points and Deanna Nolan added 22 as the Detroit Shock easily cruised to a 72-56 victory over the Indiana Fever on Wednesday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. The Shock, seeking their fourth straight trip to the WNBA finals, have knocked out the Fever in each of the last three postseasons. Game 2 is Friday night at Indiana. Katie Douglas led Indiana with 16 points, but the Fever couldn’t overcome Detroit’s edge in rebounds and turnovers. After trailing the entire

first half, the Shock scored the first six points of the third quarter to take their first lead, and expanded the margin to 52-43 going into the fourth. The Fever cut the margin to four, but Nolan scored the next six points and Zellous added a threepoint play to put Detroit ahead 63-50 with 5:09 to play. The Shock struggled through the first half of the season, but closed with nine wins in their last 11 games and improved to 3-0 in the playoffs. Zellous had 16 points in the first half and led a rally that pulled the Shock to 37-35 at the break.

AL Roundup

Yankees win series with Angels, first time since 2004 Yankees 3, Angels 2 ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — A.J. Burnett struck out 11 in his second win since July, and New York won a series at Anaheim for the first time since May 2004 with a 3-2 victory over Los Angeles on Wednesday. On Tuesday night, New York became the first major league team to clinch a playoff berth. Robinson Cano hit a two-run single, and Melky Cabrera followed with an RBI double in the fourth inning for the Yankees. Gary Matthews Jr. and Bobby Abreu drove in runs for the Angels. Mariano Rivera pitched the ninth for his 42nd save, two behind the Angels’ Brian Fuentes for the major league lead. Burnett (12-9) allowed seven hits and three walks in 5 2-3 innings. Tigers 11, Indians 3 CLEVELAND (AP) — Carlos Guillen hit two of Detroit’s three home runs and the Tigers sent Cleveland to its season-high 10th straight loss. Rick Porcello (14-9) allowed one run and six hits over five innings as

the Tigers won their third straight. Guillen tied a season high with four RBIs. He hit a two-run homer in the third off right-hander Justin Masterson (4-9) and connected on the second pitch from left-hander Mike Gosling to make it 9-1 in the fifth. It was the fourth time in his career the switch-hitter went deep from both sides and his seventh multihomer game overall. Miguel Cabrera had a two-run homer, a 440-foot shot into the bleachers in left-center in the fourth, for Detroit. The Tigers got four straight hits and took advantage of a throwing error by first baseman Andy Marte to take a 4-0 lead in the first.

Blue Jays 7, Orioles 3 TORONTO (AP) — Travis Snider homered and had two RBIs and Scott Richmond won for the first time since June 24 as Toronto completed a three-game sweep. Baltimore lost its season-high seventh straight and lost for the eighth time in nine games

in Toronto this season. The Orioles have been outscored 48-19 over their losing streak. Richmond (7-10) allowed three runs and five hits in five innings to win for the first time in 10 starts. The rookie, 0-6 since beating Cincinnati on June 24, walked four and struck out two. Jeremy Guthrie (10-16), who has lost four of five, allowed seven runs, five earned, and eight hits in seven-plus innings. Five of the eight hits were for extra bases.

The Rays loaded the bases on a single and two walks with one out against Mark Lowe (2-7) in the eighth and Upton gave the Rays a 5-4 lead on his single to left. Akinori Iwamura had two RBIs for the Rays, who are 6-3 since an 11-game losing skid. The defending AL champions, eliminated from playoff

Red Sox 9, Royals 2 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — David Ortiz homered and drove in four runs, and Josh Beckett allowed two runs over six innings to lift the Boston Red Sox to a 9-2 win over the Kansas City Royals 6-2 Wednesday night. Jason Bay and Jacoby Ellsbury each drove in two runs and Ortiz had a runscoring single in Boston’s six-run fifth inning off Luke Hochevar (7-11). Ortiz added his 25th homer in the eighth, a three-run shot off Carlos Rosa to give Boston 90 wins for the third consecutive season. Beckett (16-6) limited the damage from 12 hits with seven strikeouts, improving to 5-0 with a 2.03 ERA in seven career starts against Kansas City

ready in case something happens. You never know what can happen.” When he plays, Vick is expected to run Philadelphia’s version of the wildcat offense. The Eagles used that formation nine times against the Saints with three different players taking snaps. Wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin and running back Brian Westbrook took turns handling the ball. Westbrook even threw an incomplete pass to Leonard Weaver at the goal line. Vick is quite familiar with a nontraditional of-

fensive style. During his six seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, he was more known for his running ability than his passing skills. He holds several rushing records for QBs, including most yards in a season (1,039) and most career 100-yard games (eight). “I was the Wildcat originator, so it’s not foreign territory to me,” Vick said. “It’s just about making the right decisions and just playing football. It’s almost like backyard ball, but it’s become quite immense in this league now. Everybody’s doing it, so I’m excited about my role.”

VICK, from page 1B to me,” Vick said. His role is uncertain because the Eagles have a complicated situation at quarterback. Donovan McNabb did not practice Wednesday because of a broken rib that forced him to miss last Sunday’s 48-22 loss to New Orleans. Kevin Kolb would make his second straight start if McNabb, injured in the season opener at Carolina, can’t play against the Chiefs. Kolb made his first NFL start against the Saints, throwing for 391 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. Coach Andy Reid isn’t

sure whether Vick or Jeff Garcia would be the backup quarterback. Reid wouldn’t even say that Vick is definitely playing against Kansas City. Vick said he will be in uniform, so that means he’ll at least serve as the No. 3 QB. “One thing we do know is I’m going to be dressed up, so that’s a great opportunity,” Vick said. “This is Andy’s team. He’s a smart guy. He knows what to do and when he comes up with the game plan. If it doesn’t include me, I’m cool. But, I will make sure that mentally I’m aware of what’s going on and I’m

RAIDERS WIN, from page 1B beyond himself, he really did, along with a number of our other players.” In an eight-minute span, Aycock saved shots from Humberto Salazar, Michael Lopez, Matt Bowers and Luis RodriquezMendoza. The Raiders nearly had a goal within the final 10 minutes of the first half. A shot on a corner kick play got by Aycock temporarily, but he scrambled to stop its progress before it went in the goal. Salazar finally squeaked one in with a little less than three minutes to go in the half, giving Southern a 1-0 lead at intermission. “It seemed like when we had shots, we would get unselfish and would make an extra pass. It seemed like sometimes we needed to make an extra pass, and we didn’t,” said Southern coach Mike Rotolo. The Raiders were more aggressive in the second half, and continued their barrage. Still, besides their one goal in minute 43, the Eagle defense kept it out of the net. Joel Lopez-Hernandez scored the only goal of the half, kicking it past the keeper 3:30 into the half. He had another attempt in minute 49 that sailed over the net, and his shot with 29:40 to play was saved by Aycock. Salazar made a nice move to get past the keeper at minute 54, but Aycock retreated and scooped up

the ball before Salazar could take his shot. Warren County had a rare drive toward the goal recalled for being offsides with a little more than 20 minutes remaining. With 4:30 to play, the Eagles had a free kick opportunity close to the goal, but the kick sailed way off, high and right of the net. “I think we played harder in the second half. I still don’t think we’re playing the way we need to be playing,” said Rotolo. “We’re still not doing some things that we’re talking about doing in practice. We’re going to have to make some adjustments.” “I don’t want to take anything away from Warren County. I thought their kids played hard, and I know those guys are working really hard with their kids every day. I was impressed with them, with their hustle, with their intensity.” This year’s Eagles team is co-ed, featuring several girls playing at various starting positions. Brown said it was the first time, to his knowledge, the Eagles’ soccer team has had female players. Warren County does not have a girls team in the spring. “We had some girls that wanted to play, and so we decided to play co-ed,” he said. Contact the writer at erobinson@hendersondispatch.com.

Fourth-ranked Rebels enter spotlight tonight vs. Gamecocks By PETE IACOBELLI AP Sports Writer

COLUMBIA, S.C. — The fourth-ranked Mississippi Rebels sure sound ready for their college football close up. The Rebels are highly ranked but untested after easy opening victories against Memphis and Southeastern Louisiana. Ole Miss (2-0) opens its Southeastern Conference schedule Thursday night at South Carolina (2-1, 1-0) in front of a national television audience. “It’s going to be a big showcase for us,” defensive end Kentrell Lockett said. “We can show the work and show people that we’re a top-five caliber team. So it’s going to be a big opportunity for us.” And maybe a chance for Mississippi quarterback Jevan Snead to show Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier he should have stuck to his original preseason all-SEC team ballot, the one with Snead instead of Florida’s Tim Tebow. Remember that summertime whodunit? It turned out Spurrier had a

The fourth-ranked Rebels will need as much as they can get out from Bolden as they head into Southeastern Conference play.

He later changed his vote to make Tebow a

unanimous selection. Snead and the Rebels have drawn plenty of attention coming into this season.

College Football Hall of Fame moving to Atlanta By TOM COYNE AP Sports Writer

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The College Football Hall of Fame, which never managed to attract the number of visitors its organizers hoped for after moving it to South Bend in 1995, is being moved to Atlanta to bring it more exposure, organizers told the city. The National Football Foundation notified the city of South Bend in a letter Tuesday that it is terminating its agreement with the city when its current lease ends on Dec. 31, 2010. “We take this action not because of any failure on your part, but because we have an opportunity to take the exposure of the Hall of Fame to an entirely new level,” wrote Archie Manning, chairman of the National Football Foundation and the College Football Hall of Fame. South Bend Mayor Stephen Luecke said Wednesday that he met with football foundation officials on Tuesday and they told him that the move would be announced at a news conference Thursday in Atlanta. Officials with the National Football Foundation and the Hall of Fame did not respond to telephone messages Tuesday and Wednesday seeking comment. Luecke said he was told a group in Atlanta had put together an impressive package, “including some sponsorships that we were never able to develop here in

South Bend.” The hall moved to South Bend from Kings Mills, Ohio, in 1995 to take advantage of its proximity to Notre Dame. Supporters predicted it would attract more than 150,000 visitors a year, but it drew about 115,000 people the first year and about 60,000 annually after that. “I think they feel being in a larger city perhaps will give them better exposure,” Luecke said. “It was a business decision on the part of the National Football Foundation.” Luecke said he was “deeply disappointed” by the foundation’s decision, but not surprised considering the number of communities that have courted the hall in the past. “The hall has been a great asset for our community. It has provided national exposure for us and it’s contributed to the revitalization of South Bend,” he said. Luecke said foundation officials had expressed frustration to him when some community members and city officials had complained that the hall was a financial drain. The city owns the building that houses the hall. “So for them, perhaps it was an easier decision that it would have been otherwise,” Luecke said. “I don’t think we kicked them out, but some of those negative comments may have added to their willingness to make a decision to relocate.”

They haven’t been ranked this high since Manning — father Archie and not son Eli — was at quarterback in 1970. They’re riding an eightgame winning streak, the school’s longest in 37 years. A 3-0 start would be its best opening since 1989. Lose to an unranked opponent, even one coached by Spurrier, and Ole Miss would likely take a dramatic tumble in the rankings. “You are ready to play a game like this,” Mississippi coach Houston Nutt said. “It’s going to be a great atmosphere. Our guys are looking forward to it. I know as coaches, we are. I think our players are even more so.” Mississippi figured to be that jacked up a year ago against the Gamecocks, returning home as heroes on the Grove after defeating the eventual national champion Florida Gators 31-30 a week earlier. Instead, Snead and the Rebels bobbled things away in a 31-24 loss to South Carolina. Snead threw an interception and had a fumble as Mississippi coughed up

a 14-3 lead. The Rebels lost the next week to Alabama and haven’t been beaten since, landing everywhere this summer — including on the cover of Sports Illustrated — as one of college football’s rising teams. Nutt has seen before how quickly that can disappear. “The intensity and the focus have to be a very high level,” he said. “This is why you come to Ole Miss to play the type of game like this. Really, there is nothing like it.” The contest got a little extra juice in July when Snead picked up a vote for first-team all-SEC preseason quarterback. One-by-one, league coaches stepped to the microphone at the summer media gathering saying it wasn’t them. Finally, Spurrier fessed up to what he called an error on his part. There’s no doubt Spurrier, a Heisman Trophy winning quarterback, admires Snead’s ability. Last year, Spurrier “just noticed the way the ball came out of his hand,” he said. “He threw almost perfect spirals most every time.”

But, as Spurrier pointed out, “good defense can stop just about any quarterback. Hopefully we are going to have good defense here Thursday night.” Spurrier hopes South Carolina can call on its Thursday night success the past few years. The Gamecocks have won five of seven such spotlight games with their head ball coach, including a 38-23 victory in 2007 over an unbeaten and rising Kentucky program. Two South Carolina starters, receiver Tori Gurley and cornerback Akeem Auguste, both said they committed to Spurrier after watching that win over the Wildcats. “After the game, I called up ... and told them I wanted to be part of the Gamecock nation,” Gurley said. Mississippi would love such a boost after this week’s game — and perhaps in bigger profile games to come. “I do feel like this is a chance for us to kind of prove ourselves,” Snead said of his first Thursday night appearance, “and show the world what we can do.”

Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). Naturally, you care about how you are perceived by others. But lately you’re not so worried about who thinks you’re “cool.” Your muse is drawing you in, and you are happiest when you unselfconsciously follow its whims. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re getting to be an expert at staying organized and on track. If every moment of your day is scheduled, the schedule won’t work. But when you block off some downtime, suddenly all of your plans fall neatly into place. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Most of today’s work is manageable — not easy and not hard. The tricky part is in having the wherewithal to continue past the point of boredom. When you do, things get interesting again. All of your work begins to pay off. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Whether you live alone or with others, you set the emotional climate of your environment. Take steps to improve that mood. A calm, quiet place to call home will be essential to your peace of mind. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Instead of wondering why you’ve been dealt a certain hand, you’re figuring out how to play it. What you’ve learned pays off for you. You will respond to problems with an intelligent and precisely correct answer. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There’s a great deal of pressure on you to succeed. That’s why you really don’t need critical or bossy people around you. Tell your story to the one who can listen without offering judg-

ment or direction. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Give yourself an extra 15 minutes to do each thing you have to do. Moving at a slower and more careful pace, you will be more confident, loving and powerful. It’s a small change that yields tangible results by the end of the day. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). An old friend who knows you well has offered you some great advice. You heeded it and were delighted with the results. Now is a good time to reciprocate that gift with one of your own. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Take another look at relationship dynamics. There’s a reason why you feel more alive around certain people and less energized around others. Your vibrant existence requires a solid balance of give and take. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Doing what feels right was never a problem for you, but lately you have begun to wonder whether your intuition is off. It’s not. That little kink in your plan is about to work itself out in an unexpected and fortuitous way. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your offbeat sense of humor isn’t always totally appreciated, but being a little bit wacky is just part of the fun. Throw back your head and laugh, and the world will laugh with you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Shifting winds at the workplace lead to a new alliance. You are not directly involved, but the new breeze is a welcome one because things were getting stale and predictable. An e-mail brings curious news.
