Feds: N.C. terror suspects targeted U.S. military By MIKE BAKER Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH — Two North Carolina terrorism suspects plotted to kill U.S. military personnel and one of them obtained maps of a Marine Corps base in Virginia to plan an attack, prosecutors said Thursday. A superseding indictment returned against Daniel Patrick Boyd and Hysen Sherifi is the first time authorities have said the homegrown terrorism ring had specific targets. Prosecutors said Boyd “undertook reconnais-

sance” of the base located about 30 miles south of Washington. “These additional charges hammer home the grim reality that today’s homegrown terrorists are not limiting their violent plans to locations overseas, but instead are willing to set their sights on American citizens and American targets, right here at home,” U.S. Attorney George Holding said in a statement. Authorities have previously said the men went on training expeditions in the weeks leading up to their arrest in July, practicing military tactics with armor-

piercing bullets on a property in rural North Carolina. Seven men are awaiting trial in the case, and investigators say an eighth suspect is believed to be in Pakistan. An initial indictment had accused the men of plotting international terrorism and conspiring to support terrorism, and investigators have said some of the men took trips to Jordan, Kosovo, Pakistan and Israel “to engage in violent jihad.” There was never any sign that the suspects had considered any targets in the United States. The new indictment adds

charges for conspiring to kill military personnel. It also adds weapons charges for Boyd, Sherifi and Zakariya Boyd. Prosecutors say Daniel Boyd, a drywall contractor and the father of suspects Zakariya and Dylan Boyd, was the ringleader of the aspiring terrorist group. In lengthy speeches at his home south of Raleigh, he decried the U.S. military, discussed the honor of martyrdom and bemoaned the struggle of Muslims, according to audio tapes played during a detention hearing in August. The FBI has said agents

seized some two dozen guns and more than 27,000 rounds of ammunition from Boyd’s home. The superseding indictment says Boyd possessed the armorpiercing ammunition “to attack the Americans,” according to the U.S. attorney’s office in Raleigh. Prosecutors did not immediately release the complete indictment and did not explain Sherifi’s role in planning to kill military personnel. Attorneys for Daniel and Zakariya Boyd and Sherifi did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

Farmers’ Not letting a little deportation stop him Vance market water fever district By AL WHELESS Daily Dispatch Writer

You could see farmers’ market fever spread quickly Thursday among the Planning and Environmental Committee’s three county commissioners. It didn’t take long for Danny Wright and Chairman Dan Brummitt to begin sharing Terry Garrison’s vision of Vance having a scaled-down version of the open air market enjoyed by residents of Charleston in South Carolina. Garrison had nothing but praise for the event which includes the sales of produce, crafts and other items found in the world of agriculture. Pete Burgess of the Vance County Farm Bureau estimated that a suitable building for a local farmers’ market would cost $400,000. The commissioners agreed to recommend that their board appoint a committee to help get grants for the project and to find a location for the market.

Mexican Antonio Ocampo, 30, a recently deported migrant from Seattle, waits Thursday for a chance to cross to U.S. near the U.S.-Mexico border fence in Tijuana. U.S. authorities shut down the nation’s busiest border crossing on Tuesday after federal agents fired shots at three vans filled with illegal immigrants whose drivers tried to storm past inspectors, officials said.

N.C., others call for jobless benefits extension By CAROLYN THOMPSON Associated Press Writer

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. — Labor commissioners from 18 states — including North Carolina — urged the U.S. Senate on Thursday to act immediately to extend unemployment benefits for 300,000 people who will exhaust theirs in another week. “We’re here because we are facing an unemployment crisis of epic proportions,” said New York Labor Commissioner M. Patricia Smith, surrounded by counterparts from around the country. “Families are suffering. Unless further action is taken, more suffering is on the horizon.” The group urged the Senate to follow the House’s lead and agree to give the jobless in states with unem-

Workforce Agencies, whose leadership passed a resolution seeking even broader extensions of benefits as a way to keep the unemployed from ending up on welfare. “The cost then will shift from the federal government to the state and local governments, and we know how difficult times are,” Smith said. The resolution asks Congress to eventually expand the 13-week extension to all states and provide a 20-week extension for high unemployment states. It also would preserve through 2010 the $25 that was added to people’s weekly unemployment checks by the stimulus act passed last February.

ployment rates topping 8.5 percent an additional 13 weeks of benefits. The immediate effect would be to keep help flowing to 300,000 of the 400,000 people whose benefits would stop this month. Through the end of the year, it would protect more than 1 million people. “These are not faceless people,” said Stephen Geskey, director of the Unemployment Insurance Agency in Michigan, where unemployment is 15.2 percent, the highest in the nation. “They are our mothers, our fathers, our brothers, our sisters, our sons and daughters. My staff ... are already receiving calls from desperate people wondering, ‘What are we going to do next?’” The labor officials were in Niagara Falls for the annual meeting of the National Association of State

Construction of Vance County’s proposed water district would begin Feb. 1 of 2010 under a progress schedule that the Planning and Environmental Committee will recommend Oct. 5 to the Board of Commissioners. Other steps would include: • Appoint from Oct. 5-19 a citizens’ advisory committee to obtain sign-ups on a local level. It would report to County Manager Jerry Ayscue. • Send out water bills on Oct. 1 to Phase 1A service area residents at the beginning of mass mailings of sign-up forms that will stop on Oct. 15. If approved, the contracts would specify estimated monthly rates of $35 to $45 for 5,000 gallons of water. • Start conducting sign-up drives on Oct. 15 in public meetings at locations in Phase 1A and door-to-door. Participation is not mandatory. • Door-to-door surveys for sign-ups will be done by members of the Citizen Advisory Committee and possibly part-time hired staff. They will take place from Oct. 15 to Nov. 30.

RALEIGH — North Carolina is already seeing one of the most active flu seasons in recent record keeping, an early indication of how widespread the swine flu pandemic could become. Dr. Zack Moore, a respiratory disease epidemiologist for the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, said officials were prepared for a spike in flu cases but were surprised at how quickly the numbers climbed. The number of reported flulike patients has spiked since the beginning of the school year, officials said. “You don’t like to see a curve go-

ing up that steeply,” Moore said. For three consecutive weeks, health providers have been reporting that more than 5 percent of patients have influenza-like symptoms. Those figures rival the peak of other flu seasons during this decade. During the week ending Sept. 12, nearly 7 percent of people who sought care at facilities in the health reporting network had flulike illnesses, defined as a fever of at least 100 degrees along with a cough or sore throat. That was up from less than 2 percent just two weeks prior. Of available figures dating back to 2001, only one other week recorded a higher percentage of sick patients — a

week in December 2003 at the height of that winter’s exhausting flu seasons. North Carolina is asking clinicians to submit samples of flu cases only when the patient requires intensive care, a push that allows the state lab to focus on the critical issues. The state had previously gathered samples for all people that were hospitalized. Most of the flu cases confirmed in lab tests have been the swine flu, according to the state. The flu problem appears to be radiating out of the South with the start of the school year. Now, nearly half of states have “widespread” flu activity, according to the CDC.

Moore said the flu is difficult to predict, and health officials aren’t sure whether flu reporting levels are going to stay elevated or whether the data shows a temporary peak. The seasonal flu typically peaks during the middle of winter. “It’s not unexpected,” Moore said. “We are in a pandemic.” Health officials are preparing to distribute a swine flu vaccine in the coming months, first targeting health workers and high-risk groups such as young children and pregnant women. Health fficials have also said that many people will do well without the vaccine, noting that most people infected have mild illness and recover by themselves.

CURRITUCK (AP) — Tours of off-road areas of some parts of North Caro-

lina’s Outer Banks face the possibility of more regulations in Currituck County. The Daily Advance in Elizabeth City reported Wednesday that commissioners voted to restrict businesses that provide the tours. The plan allows commissioners to set a maximum number of vehicles for each tour operator, set their hours of operation and limit the duration of their permit. The amendment increases the fine for violations from $100 to $500. Residents of off-road areas had complained about vacationers crowding roads and blocking driveways. They say visitors also get too close to Corolla’s wild horses, despite a requirement that people stay at least 50 feet away.

of six unemployed workers are competing for every job, according to government data. “There are so many qualified, good, hardworking people out there,” Lasky said, “and you’re going against all of them.” The unemployment rate is now 9.7 percent, and economists see it topping 10

JOBLESS, from page one and Industry, “8.5 percent is just a number. There are people behind all of those numbers stacked up and that help is needed universally, wherever you’re at in the United States.” John Lasky, 48, of Lewiston, north of Buffalo, said his unemployment check has allowed him to keep his home since losing his job as

a district manager last November. Despite being willing to accept a job that pays considerably less than the more than $50,000 he was earning before, the father of two said the competition for work is fierce. The recession, which began in December 2007, has eliminated a net total of 6.9 million jobs and an average

Ayscue told the three commissioners Thursday that negotiations are going on with the USDA Rural Center for grants and loan rates for all phases of the project. Design work on Phase 1A, which is Sandy Creek, has been completed, according to Tim Carpenter of the engineering firm of Hobbs, Upchurch & As-

Fred Hobbs, the principle partner in the company, told the Commissioners that the USDA Rural Center is eager to hand out grants to qualifying counties wanting to undertake proposed projects such as theirs because of a recent shortage of applicants.

RALEIGH (AP) — The chief investment officer of North Carolina’s public pension funds was removed from her job after she chose not to resign her post managing $60 billion. The State Treasurer’s Office disclosed the information Thursday in response to a public records request about last month’s departure of Patricia Gerrick. Treasurer Janet Cowell’s office said Aug. 25 Gerrick had resigned after five years on the job. But a Sept. 9 memo by Cowell said she removed Gerrick because Gerrick decided in early September not to resign. Cowell’s memo doesn’t

provide specifics about why she removed Gerrick, who couldn’t be reached for comment Thursday. Gerrick made $340,000 a year, making her among the highest paid employees in state government.

Woman celebrates 100th birthday — at work ‘I don’t feel old ... I don’t think old’

Deaths Melvin M. Boyd STEM — Melvin M. Boyd, 55, of 3522 E. Thollie Green Road, Stem, died Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2009, at his residence. A native of Granville County, he was the son of the late Syndey M. and Elva Lee Elliott Boyd. No visitation or funeral is planned at this time. He is survived by his wife, Mary Leathers Boyd, and a son, Dylan Minor Boyd, both of the home, and one brother, Johnny of Durham. Eakes Funeral Home of Creedmoor in charge of arrangements.

By SAMANTHA HENRY Associated Press Writer

PARSIPPANY, N.J. — Astrid Thoenig got dressed, went to work and sat at her desk smiling Thursday as she slid her finger gently under the envelope flap of yet another identical birthday card. They don’t make that many that say “Happy 100th.” Thoenig was interrupted by a steady stream of deliverymen bringing bouquets, chocolate-dipped strawberries and stacks of cards to the Thornton Insurance Co. in Parsippany where she’s been answering phones, keeping financial records, handling payroll and typing up documents for more than 30 years. “It’s another day — it’s hard to explain,” Thoenig said of turning 100. “I don’t feel old, and I don’t think old.” Born Sept. 24, 1909, in Bloomfield, N.J., Thoenig’s earliest memories start in 1918, when she witnessed something so traumatic, “it erased all memories of my childhood before that.” “I remember coming down the stairs from my bedroom and saw these two coffins in the living room: one white, for my sister, and the other for the grown person,” she said, recalling how the flu pandemic of 1918 killed her father and her 10-year-old sister within hours of one another. “To see my father and sister — of all the things I can’t remember — that’s very vivid in my mind.” Thoenig, her remaining sister, and her mother also

Her mother lived until 101 and her sister, who suffered permanent hearing loss from the illness, was 95 when she died. A few years ago, scientists tracked Thoenig down and took blood samples from her as one of the few remaining survivors of the pandemic of 1918-1919 that killed an estimated 30 million to 50 million people worldwide, including thousands in New Jersey. As Thoenig turns 100, her grandson, 43-year-old Peter Thornton, said she couldn’t have picked a better era. “If you had to pick a dramatic century to live, it has to be Astrid’s,” he said. “The invention of the automobile and the airplane, television and computers, the moon landing and two world wars. 1780 to 1880 would have seen changes from a musket to a rifle.” Thoenig says “thinking young” has helped her take a century’s worth of techno-

logical changes in stride. The daughter of Swedish immigrants, she credits her strong constitution, a wonderful family and getting up every day to get dressed and go to work with keeping her mind sharp. Thoenig once sewed all her own clothes and still dresses elegantly, accenting with gold jewelry, colorful glasses and a full head of blond hair that makes her look decades younger. Her strong, agile hands come from a lifetime of typing, knitting and embroidering. Married twice — her first husband died from injuries that earned him a Purple Heart in World War II — Thoenig started working shortly after high school, and has held positions at banks, lawyer’s offices and for the borough of Caldwell. Her current job is her favorite — working alongside her son, John Thornton, and grandson Peter at the family-owned insurance company. “I’m 67, and one of our

jokes is: ‘How can I retire before my mother does?’” John Thornton said. He says his mother is a meticulous worker, reviewing contracts, preparing the payroll, making sure bills are paid, and is always pleasant company. Thoenig credits her son for giving her the job, taking her to work — although she still drove until age 98 when a botched hip operation made it difficult to get around — and always being patient. The growing stack of birthday cards may have identical motifs, but the messages inside them each touched her in their own way. Some, sent by people she’s never met, were from seniors who continue to work and are inspired by her example: “I’m at my job 37 years and still love it,” someone wrote. She took special delight in a bouquet from her dentist with the message: “This is only the beginning!”

Mary M. Taylor DURHAM — Mary M. Taylor, 81, of 5106 Cheek Road, Durham, died Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2009, at Duke University Medical Center in Durham. A native of Granville County, she was the daughter of the late Luther Thomas and Hettie Brogden Taylor.

She was a member of Roberson Grove Baptist Church in Durham County and was a homemaker. Funeral services will be conducted at 2 p.m. Saturday in the Eakes Funeral Chapel in Creedmoor by the Rev. Donald Maynard. Burial will be in Creedmoor Cemetery. She is survived by a sister, Sue Sauls of Smithfield; and a brother, Dennis Warren Taylor of Franklinton. Visitation will be from 7 to 8:30 p.m. today at Eakes Funeral Home in Creedmoor. Arrangements are by Eakes Funeral Home of Creedmoor.

Willie M. Turner WARRENTON — Willie Mae Turner, 85, of Warrenton, died Thursday, Sept. 24, 2009, at Warren Hills Nursing Facility in Warrenton. Funeral services are incomplete at this time but will be announced later by Boyd’s Funeral Service in Warrenton.

Police seize mafia boss’ pet crocodile ROME (AP) — Here’s another of the Mafia’s trademark offers-you-can’t-refuse: pay or be eaten by a crocodile. Italy’s anti-Mafia police unit said Wednesday it has seized a crocodile used by an alleged Naples mob boss to intimidate local businessmen from whom he demanded protection money. Officers searching for weapons in the man’s home outside the southern Italian city last week found the crocodile living on his terrace, said police official Sergio Di Mauro. The crocodile, weighing 88 pounds and 5.6 feet long, was fed a diet of live rabbits and mice, Di Mauro said. He said the suspect, an al-

leged boss in the Naples-based Camorra crime syndicate, used to invite extortion victims to his home and threaten to set the animal on them if they didn’t pay or grant him favors. The man was not arrested but placed under investigation for illegal possession of an animal, Di Mauro said. Investigators are also working on extortion charges against him. Di Mauro said the animal is believed to be a caiman, a species that lives in Central and South America, and it is not yet clear how it got to Italy. The crocodile was placed in the care of Italy’s forestry service.

Polling places for tobacco referendum announced Polling places have been established in Warren and Vance counties for the Nov. 19 N.C. Tobacco Research Check-Off Referendum, Paul McKenzie, Agricultural Extension Agent, announced. The polling locations are Warren County Extension Center, 158 Rafters Lane, Warrenton, and Vance County Extension Center, 305 Young St., Henderson. McKenzie explained that the referendum is being held to let tobacco growers

decide if they wish to continue the self-assessment program. This program has been in place since 1991, and the law requires that a new referendum be held every six years. A two-thirds favorable vote will mean that growers are willing to continue to assess themselves to support tobacco research and education. The assessment is 10 cents per hundred pounds of tobacco produced in North Carolina.

Duke, FPL to switch to hybrid, electric vehicles COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Two of the nation’s largest power generators said Thursday that they plan to begin switching their company cars and trucks to plug-in hybrid vehicles or all-electric vehicles starting Jan. 1 to help cut greenhouse gas emissions. The commitment by Charlotte, N.C.-based Duke Energy and Juno Beach, Fla.-based FPL Group Inc. represents more than 10,000 vehicles and potential revenue of $600 million or more for manufacturers. The goal is that by 2020, 100 percent of all new fleet vehicles will be plug-in

electric vehicles or plug-in hybrid vehicles. The companies say plugin cars will reduce carbon emissions by up to 70 percent — 100 percent if a vehicle is charged by zerocarbon renewable energy sources — and lower fuel costs by 80 percent. They say it also will help jump start the market for these vehicles. “We should work together. We benefit the same way,” FPL Vice President Chris Bennett said. He said electric vehicles will provide lower-cost transportation and move the country away from dependency on foreign oil.

The companies made the announcement during the annual meeting of Clinton Global Initiative, started by former President Bill Clinton that brings together the public and private sector to discuss solutions to problems in four areas — climate change, poverty, global health and education. Duke has 4 million electric customers in five states and FPL is the parent of Florida Power & Light, which has 4.5 million customers in Florida. Duke shares were up 7 cents to $15.79 in trading Thursday morning. FPL shares rose 3 cents $53.90.

Home sales drop 2.7 percent WASHINGTON (AP) — Home resales dipped last month after a four-month streak of gains, providing evidence that the housing market recovery remains fragile. The National Association of Realtors said Thursday that sales dropped 2.7 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.1 million in August, from a pace of 5.24 million in July. Sales had been expected to rise to an

annual pace of 5.35 million, according to economists surveyed by Thomson Reuters. Nationwide sales are up nearly 14 percent from their bottom in January, but are still down nearly 30 percent from their peak nearly four years ago. For the housing market to stabilize, Yun said, sales would need to rise to a pace of around 5.5 million to 6 million per year. If buyers see clear evidence of stable prices, the housing

market recovery can be selfsustaining, Yun said, adding, “We are not there yet.” The median sales price was $177,700, down 12.5 percent from $203,200 in the same month last year. In one positive sign, the inventory of unsold homes on the market fell to 3.6 million, from 4 million in July. That’s an 8.5 month supply at the current sales pace, and the lowest level in more than two years.

The Daily Dispatch

N.C. Marine calm in 911 call reporting wife’s death JACKSONVILLE (AP) — A former Camp Lejeune Marine charged with killing his wife calmly told 911 dispatchers that he had written a suicide note but was unable to kill himself. In the recording released Wednesday — the same day that he was discharged from the U.S. Marine Corps — former Cpl. Cody Daniel Richardson also answers a dispatcher’s questions and follows her instructions on what to do when police arrived. The 22-year-old from Wolfeboro, N.H., was arrested Monday and charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of his wife, Jessy. Richardson tells the dispatcher the suicide note describes what happened to his wife. But Richardson said he was unable to kill himself. “I was going to follow through on it last night, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it,” he tells the dispatcher. When police responded to Richardson’s call, they found him waiting outside his apartment and his wife dead in the bedroom. A death certificate by the Onslow County

medical examiner says Jessy Richardson died of asphyxiation due to strangulation. Cody Richardson was calm throughout the call, staying on the phone with the dispatcher until police arrived. After the dispatcher advises him to leave through the front door, he tells her that he is walking down the stairs and, when she asks, describes what he’s wearing — “all blue and a striped shirt.” In a second 911 call released Wednesday, a man who identifies himself as being in the military with Richardson, said Richardson came to his house and confessed to the crime. “I don’t know if he’s joking or if he’s telling the truth, but he has completely freaked me out and told me that he has killed his wife,” the caller said. “He had this note that appeared to be a suicide note, saying that he did it and that he had strangled her.” The caller continued: “He said he wasn’t joking, and I said, ‘Just get out of my house,’” the caller continued. Jessy Richardson’s death and her husband’s arrest shocked his family.

‘Cruizin’ for a Cure’ cancer benefit Dunk a fireman, win a recliner or a generator in battle against breast cancer From STAFF REPORTS

The battle against breast cancer continues today and Saturday with “Cruizin’ for a Cure.” A joint project of the Instruments of Shining Hope Cancer Ministry of South Henderson Pentecostal Holiness Church and Maria Parham Medical Center Oncology Center, the battle begins at 3 p.m. today when two Henderson policemen are “jailed” for 24 hours and have to raise their own bail. The “cell” will be located at the City Operations Center on Beckford Drive, which will be the location for Saturday’s events. The benefit continues Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with raffles, games, food and music. The policemen, Lt. Charles Pulley and Detective Kendall Riddick, will use their cell phones to call for help. According to Pulley, the pair of Henderson’s finest want to raise

$3,000 each. Other activities for the day include: • The firemen’s pink boot drive from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Firemen will take donations at various intersections in the city. • Dunk a fireman. The dunking booth will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. • Generator raffle by the Vance County Sheriff’s Office. • Fire engines will be on dispaly. • Enter for a chance to win a recliner donated by Sams Furniture. • Raffle for a chance to ride along with a deputy. • Bid for a chance to shave the head of Emergency Operations Director Brian Short.

cancer prevention, detection and support. Sandra Currin, president of the church group, said the goal is $10,000, a portion of which will be used to provide mammograms for women who cannot afford them. Cash will be accepted during the benefit, and checks should be made to the Maria Parham Health Care Foundation. Another battle against breast cancer is the Second Annual Bike Ride on Saturday, Oct. 3, from Maria Parham Medical Center to the church. Registration will be from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m., with the ride from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Entry fees for the ride are $20 per bike or $25 for bike and rider. The fees ibnclude a pork barbecue dinner.

Data-storage firm EMC to add nearly 400 N.C. jobs RALEIGH (AP) — Data storage equipment maker EMC Corp. said it will add about 400 jobs, build a new research center and expand existing operations in North Carolina if it receives expected incentives. Gov. Bev Perdue’s office said Thursday that EMC was offered up to $7.4 million in state incentives over nine years if the data storage technology provider creates the jobs, invests

$280 million, and pays wages averaging more than $73,000 per year. The project still depends on approval of local grants from Durham city and county officials. Massachusetts-based EMC plans a new research facility in Durham County and to expand a research facility in Research Triangle Park and a manufacturing plant in Apex, in Wake County.

Daily Meditation I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalm 34:4-8

Our Opinion

National Public Newspapers? The Hill — a news organization covering Washington politics — reports this week that President Obama would be “happy to look at” bills coming before Congress that would give struggling news organizations a tax break if they would restructure as nonprofit businesses. Dubbed the “Newspaper Revitalization Act,” so far only Sens. Ben Cardin and Barbara Mikulski — both Maryland Democrats — have signed on. Obama has said that good journalism is “critical to the health of our democracy.” And he’s right. Michael Reagan — in a column published by this newspaper — has questioned whether profitable newspapers are necessary to this country’s democracy. There is no question about it; they are. But it is not government’s responsibility to ensure a newspaper’s profitability. And there isn’t a newspaper in America that should take government bailout money to survive — though we can’t guarantee that all newspapers would refuse such cash. Frankly, it would be impossible for a news organization to convince the public of its journalistic independence on one hand if it has the other hand extended toward Uncle Sam. That actually doesn’t appear to be the angle that Cardin and Mukulski have taken with their bill. Their legislation appears directed at assisting newspapers in becoming a localized, dead-tree version of National Public Radio — in it for information, but not for profit. We’re not sure what newspaper company would be interested in accepting tax credits in exchange for becoming a nonprofit entity. Or, if a company did bite at that apple, whether you could really trust that organization’s “nonprofit” status.

Quotable “Those who used to chastise America for acting alone in the world cannot now stand by and wait for America to solve the world’s problems alone. Now is the time for all of us to take our share of responsibility for a global response to global challenges.” — President Barack Obama, addressing a packed U.N. General Assembly hall. “We are right in the middle of an unprecedented financial and economic crisis. We are on the threshold of a planetary ecological disaster. We must right now invent a new world where the follies of yesterday will no longer be possible.” — French President Nicolas Sarkozy, in his speech to the U.N. General Assembly. “It gives me cautious optimism about the possibility of improving this result and developing a more effective AIDS vaccine. This is something that we can do.” — Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in a telephone interview after the announcement that an experimental vaccine has prevented infection with the AIDS virus.

The Eaves household doesn’t awaken to a rooster’s crow, or to the repetitive ring of an alarm clock. We have Tippy. Imagine a ham, with four small sticks protruding from its underside, all covered in white fur, plus whiskers and pointed pink ears. Aesthetically speaking, you have Tippy. Tippy was born late one January evening in a Carolina blue clothes hamper, inside Mama’s and Daddy’s bedroom closet. The faint meows of Tippy and the other kittens of her litter awakened my parents with smiles — and some late-night washing of clothes. There’s always one in every litter whose tiny paws push aside all siblings as — eyes still glued shut from birth — the hungry one horns in for seconds before the others have finished their firsts. Tippy was that kitten. The result was a round, “aboutto-pop” belly, the type that

often sends kittens tumbling because their weak, newborn legs are unable to hold up the heap. Tippy’s belly, 13 years later, is still out of proportion, just as it was in her kitten days. Said one visiting Gina family Eaves member, Daily Dispatch “That cat Columnist should be walked on a leash daily!” “Do you think Tippy swallowed a large hairball?” asked another. Due to such uproar, Tippy was placed on a diet — which has become the object of her feline fury. Now, Tippy is fed twice daily. The diet, so far, has

been unsuccessful. Thus, the wake-up calls. A recent morning’s wake-up call was 2:30. The hungry cat, climbing the steps to Mama’s bedroom, began her scratchy, deep meow — the type of sound you’d expect from a lifelong cigar-smoker. Succumbing to Tippy’s cries, Mama gave her a spoonful of diet cat food as a snack and returned to bed. But Tippy did not rest. By 4:30, Tippy’s big belly was again her compass, guiding her to Mama’s bedside. A sleepy Mama, hoping Tippy would leave the bedroom if ignored, watched the white mound of fur try to leap onto the bed. With a failed attempt, and Tippy’s claws stuck in the mattress, an exasperated Mama relented, this time giving Tippy her breakfast. Tippy’s diet has raised a moral dilemma for the Eaves household. Tippy’s health has been the primary factor in

controlling her eating habits. Mealtime surveillance is now mandatory to ensure Tippy doesn’t eat the mama cat’s food, as well, which our family came to realize was a contributing factor in Tippy’s obesity. Yet, Tippy’s a cat. And Tippy is old. And if Tippy lives for her dinner, it’s shameful to suddenly halt her normal buffet-style banquet. With the love of food the women of my family share, the term “mandatory diet” is synonymous with “fighting words.” Cats are wise creatures, and with such early morning wake-up calls, Tippy just may regain her old eating habits. If so, the Eaves household will either invest in a rooster or a new alarm clock. But for now, we’ll just depend on meows. Gina Eaves is an Epsom native, a graduate of Peace College and an advertising sales representative at The Daily Dispatch.

Letters to the Editor Editor’s note: Recently the manager of a Bank of America branch in Gaffney, S.C., cited corporate policy in refusing to allow American flags to be planted along the route that a fallen Marine’s casket would be taking to a local cemetery.

Afterthoughts from Obama’s United Nations address It was the most Obamaesque address to date. “For those who question the character and cause of my nation,” the president pronounced Wednesday, “I ask you to look at the concrete actions we have taken in just nine months.” America is 233 years old. Some think that there are ample accomplishments speaking to our character and cause that predate Obama’s ascension to the presidency. Feh, Obama seems to be saying. Look instead to our new greatness, for we have elected a man like him! Having anointed himself America’s vindicator and redeemer, Obama’s real purpose seems to be to become the leader not of the free world but, simply, the world. “No world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will succeed,” Obama said. “No balance of power among nations will hold. The traditional divisions between nations of the South and the North make no sense in an interconnected world; nor do alignments of nations rooted in the cleavages of a long-gone Cold War.” The United Nations is an odd venue to say such things. The Security Council is premised on nothing if not a balance of power, and the U.N.’s roots go nowhere if not deep into the chilled soil of the Cold War. It is odder still for the president of the United States of America to say such things. Is NATO — currently fighting what until recently Obama defined as a “war of necessity” in Afghanistan — now obsolete? What do the South Koreans or the Japanese think of such rhetoric? More important, our alliances weren’t merely the balancing of power, they represented a contest of values. The Cold War was informed by America’s principled support for free

nations over tyrannical ones. Compromises were made, to be sure, but our values were never abandoned. The president’s defenders say that there is realpolitik behind the U.N. boilerplate, that he is pursuing America’s interests even if he sounds like he’s agreeing with our enemies about pre-Obama Jonah America’s Goldberg flaws. Specifically, they Tribune Media argue that Services he is laying the necessary groundwork to contain and isolate Iran, coaxing the Russians into a new round of sanctions against the Iranians. If he succeeds in that regard, Obama should be congratulated. The problem with this analysis, however, is that most of what Obama said Wednesday was a repeat of what he has said many times before, on the campaign trail, in Berlin and in Cairo. He has said this stuff so often, some might be forgiven for thinking they are more than just words. The greatest danger, Obama declared in Berlin, is not terrorism or global warming or even nuclear war. No, the “greatest danger of all is to allow new walls to divide us from one another.” This week he rehashed the same rhetoric. “The time,” Obama assured us again, “has come for those walls to come down.” Walls often exist for a good reason. They mark clear lines between peoples and nations. The Berlin Wall was not built by us, but by those who could not tolerate liberty. It is good that it came down with our victory in the Cold War.

G-8: Iran has 3 months to stop uranium enrichment By PETER JAMES SPIELMANN Associated Press Writer

UNITED NATIONS — Pressure deepened against Iran on Thursday when the world’s eight top economic powers gave Tehran until year’s end to cease enriching uranium or face new sanctions, but resistance from China could undermine the effort. Washington has been pushing for heavier sanctions if Iran does not agree to end enrichment, which many nations believe is part Ahmadinejad of Tehran’s drive to build a nuclear weapon. Iran says its nuclear program is designed to generate electricity. The U.S. hand was strengthened Wednesday when Russian President Dmitry Medvedev suggest-

ed he could now back such sanctions if they became necessary. But, the prospects of pushing a new sanctions resolution through the Security Council were undercut Thursday when China, one of the veto-wielding permanent members, rejected the idea. Instead, more diplomatic efforts are needed, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu told reporters in Beijing at a news conference, reiterating a long-held stance. Current U.N. sanctions on Iran are meant to prohibit exports of sensitive nuclear material and technology. They also allow the inspection of cargo suspected of carrying prohibited goods, tighter monitoring of financial institutions and the extension of travel bans and asset freezes if linked to its nuclear program. Iranian President Mah-

moud Ahmadinejad, in his Wednesday speech to the General Assembly, did not mention the nuclear matters issue and the push by the U.S., Britain and France for heavier sanctions. On Thursday, Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini said the Group of Eight nations has given Iran until the end of the year to commit to ending uranium enrichment if it wants to avoid new sanctions. Frattini, who’s nation holds the rotating chair of the club of wealthy nations known as the G-8, said that member foreign ministers agreed Wednesday night “to give Iran a chance.” But Frattini said that the informal agreement will be re-examined each month, “And after the end of December, I strongly hope we will have at that time practical moves from Iran.”

“That’s why together we decided — while not excluding further measures, as even Russia apparently said — we have to give Iran a serious chance,” he said. “If we give a chance, let’s give a chance. Don’t, I would say, immediately put another option on the table. This would be counterproductive to the eyes of our counterpart. This is our strategy for the moment.” The maneuvering comes ahead an Oct. 1 meeting of diplomats from Iran, the U.S., Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany on Tehran’s nuclear program. The key to new sanctions would require agreement among all five permanent Security Council members. The United States, Britain and France lean toward more sanctions. Russia now appears open to the measure, but China still is refusing.

Beijing is heavily reliant on Iranian oil imports. “We believe we need to help Iran to take a right decision,” Medvedev said Wednesday night after he met President Barack Obama on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly. The U.S., Britain and France all mentioned Iran, along with North Korea, as obstacles to a safer world during a Security Council meeting Thursday that approved a U.S.-drafted resolution that commits all nations to achieving a nuclear weapons-free world. The resolution does not mention any country by name but it reaffirms previous resolutions that imposed sanctions on Iran and North Korea for their nuclear activities. It did not call for any new sanctions. Since Iran’s nuclear program was discovered seven years ago, it has

put thousands of centrifuges online to churn out enriched uranium. But the International Atomic Energy Agency says the more than a ton of enriched material it has amassed is all below the 5 percent level and well below the 20 percent highly enriched mark. Still Iran’s accumulation of well over (2,200 pounds) of low-enriched uranium gives it more than enough material to produce enough weaponsgrade uranium through further enrichment for one nuclear weapon. Associated Press Writer John Heilprin contributed to this story.

Bob Dylan to release album at Christmas for charity UNITED NATIONS (AP) — International royalties from Bob Dylan’s first Christmas album will be donated to the World Food Program to feed hungry people around the world, the U.N. agency announced Thursday. “Christmas in the Heart” will be released Oct. 13, Columbia Records has said. Every 25 cents that goes to the World Food Program can buy a cup of porridge for a school child at a time when hunger threatens the lives of 108 million people worldwide, a spokesman for the U.N. agency said.

Dylan had previously announced that U.S. royalties would go to the American organization Feeding America. It is estimated that will help feed 1.4 million U.S. families during the holidays. All international royalties in perpetuity will go to the World Food Program, the U.N. group said, except for British royalties, which will go to the relief agency Crisis UK.

PITTSBURGH — Struggling with a contentious issue, world leaders have reached basic agreement on limiting the bonuses of bankers whose risky behavior contributed to the global financial meltdown, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Thursday at a summit of the world’s largest economies. In the streets outside, protesters tussled with police on the opening day. At a news conference, Geithner also expressed optimism that summit partners would endorse the broad outlines of a U.S. proposal to deal with huge imbalances in the global economy such as large trade surpluses in China and record budget deficits in the United States. He also said the U.S. supports China’s efforts to gain greater voting rights in the International Monetary Fund over the reservations of European nations, who would lose influence. Given the rise of China’s economic powers, “it’s the right thing,” and Europe recognizes that, Geithner said. World leaders descended on the comeback city of Pittsburgh to debate how to nurture a recovering but still-wobbly global economy. Nerves are still on edge, but this summit of the world’s 20 leading economies seems free of the crisis atmosphere that hung over the past two — despite the clashes between protesters and police. The treasury secretary said the G-20 countries had reached a consensus on the “basic outline” of a proposal to limit bankers’ compensation by the end of this year. He said it would involve setting separate standards in each of the countries and would be overseen the Financial Stability Board, an international group of central bankers and regulators. Until now, European countries had pressed harder than the U.S. for limits. “We want to have very strong standards to limit the risks that compensation practices” encourage, Geithner said. The issue of compensation has been one of the more difficult ones facing the summit. Europeans in particular pressed for strict limits on salaries and bonuses for executives of financial institutions to keep them from being rewarded for

Insisting “this is not a witch-hunt against bankers,” Barroso said the EU was urging G-20 partners to stop the pay practice, “building on measures already taken in Europe and elsewhere.” The U.S. favors some

within a year that the G-20 leaders have met to deal with the global financial meltdown. Protests notwithstanding, the atmosphere is a lot more relaxed than at the fear-driven sessions in Washington last November and in London in April. Still, the global recovery remains fragile, with many big financial institutions under strain. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, speaking with reporters in New York before heading to Pittsburgh, said he hoped the group would agree to a new compact on jobs and growth. He warned, as President Barack Obama has, that nations should not move to quickly to end low-interest rates and stimulus spending packages. “The recession is not automatically over,” Brown said.

Arrest warrant issued for Randy Quaid SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say an arrest warrant has been issued for actor Randy Quaid and his wife claiming they skipped out on a $10,000 hotel bill in Santa Barbara County. Sheriff’s spokesman Drew Sugars said Thursday the Quaids aren’t in custody and detectives haven’t been able to interview the actor. He says the warrant for Quaid and his wife Evi set bail at $20,000 each. The felony warrant is for burglary, defrauding an innkeeper and conspiracy. The department isn’t releasing other details. A message left for Randy Quaid’s commercial agent, Steven Arcieri, was not immediately returned.

partners “made it clear that we are going to move in each country to put in place the mix of regulations, laws, advisory measures that are necessary to give those standards force.” The treasury secretary also reported progress in getting G-20 nations to go along with President Barack Obama’s proposal to move toward eliminating government subsidies on fossil fuels such as oil, coal and natural gas that contribute to global warming. Obama, who arrived from U.N. meetings in New York at mid-afternoon Thursday, chose Pittsburgh as the summit site because the formerly struggling Rust Belt city has transformed itself economically into a rebounding, environmentally conscious community with a diversified economy.

In this Sept. 17 photo, Gary Nisbet, 35, left, and Randy Joubert, 36, pose for a photo, in Waldoboro, Maine. The men who work together discovered they are brothers who were each raised by separate adoptive parents. Randy searched the state database in January to find out about his birth parents and was told that he had a brother, but he was only given a first name for his sibling.

BIDDEFORD, Maine — Two co-workers who discovered this summer that they are long-lost brothers and who reunited this week with their two half sisters have a new surprise — a half brother has surfaced. George Pomeroy of Biddeford, Maine, told WCSH-TV on Thursday that he shares a father with Randy Joubert and Gary Nisbet. He said the men lived with his family as youngsters before they were taken by the state and adopted by different families about 35

years ago. Joubert told The Associated Press that Pomeroy presented documents that prove their relationship. He said Pomeroy was the last sibling on his “search list,� so any others who might come forward would be more closely scrutinized. Nisbet spent seven years as a furniture mover for a local bedding retailer when he was joined by new colleague Joubert, who looked so much like him that customers asked whether they were brothers. After checking their original birth certificates, they realized they were. After the men’s story was

publicized, half-sister Joanne Campbell showed up. While appearing with her brothers on the “Today� show on Tuesday, Campbell said a long-lost sister was still unaccounted for. Kathleen Cooper called NBC after watching the show from her home in Sarasota, Fla., and appeared on the show Wednesday for a surprise reunion with her siblings. The co-worker brothers share a mother with the

women; the sisters aren’t related to Pomeroy. The siblings have plans to get together soon and will likely share a Thanksgiving meal, Joubert said. Joubert said he’s grateful to have a grasp on his family’s medical background. “For the first time in my life, when the doctor says, ‘What is your medical history?,’ I can finally give them an answer,� he said.

Warriors win it in five

N. Vance surges, but Webb holds on for conference victory By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor

OXFORD — Down two sets to none, Northern Vance rallied to force a fifth set against J.F. Webb Thursday night, but the Vikings came up short in the final frame. The Warriors rode strong net play from Devonte Reese and got two big blocks from Alyssa Blair in the fifth set to win 15-12 in a heated match between the two conference rivals. “I think they played hard, they played tough, they blocked. They did everything they needed to do to really pull it out,” said Webb coach Rheta Burton. “But I’m telling you, if it’s going to be like this for the rest of the season, I don’t know if I’ll be able to survive.” “I think I lost five pounds just yelling and screaming.” After a strong start to the season, Northern now sits at 0-4 in Carolina 3A Conference play. “The last three times out, especially the last two times out, we’ve just got beaten down,” said Hoyle. “And I think, coming out here, we’ve

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Phoenix Coyotes asked Wayne Gretzky to be the face of their franchise. They only want Dave Tippett to be their coach. Hours after Gretzky abruptly resigned Thursday amid the financial turmoil surrounding the team, the Coyotes replaced him with Tippett, the former Dallas Stars coach. They hope Tippett will have Gretzky more success than Gretzky, whose four-year tenure was marked largely by on-ice futility. Coyotes general manager Don Maloney had been preparing for Gretzky’s departure, which had been rumored as the bankruptcy court battle between Canadian billionaire Jim Balsillie and the NHL over the sale of the team dragged on. In a sign of his estrangement from the club, Gretzky announced his resignation on his Web site, with no immediate comment from the team. “This was a difficult decision that I’ve thought long and hard about,” Gretzky said. “We all hoped there would be a resolution earlier this month to the Coyotes ownership situation, but the decision is taking longer than expected. “Since both remaining bidders have made it clear that I don’t fit into their future plans, I approached general manager Don Maloney and suggested he begin looking for someone to replace me as coach. Don has worked hard and explored many options. I think he has made an excellent choice, and so now it’s time for me to step aside.” Gretzky, who was due to make $8.5 million this season, coached the Coyotes from 2005-2009, finishing with a 143-161-24 record, and the team missed the playoffs in all four seasons. Gretzky, 48, also owns a small piece of the franchise. Gretzky steadfastly maintained that hockey could thrive in Phoenix, a place where ice is more common in margaritas than skating rinks. But the empty seats in Jobing. com Arena and minuscule television ratings have told a different story — as did the absence of a local bidder in the auction for the team. The Coyotes may have seen Gretzky as an icon who would Please see GRETZKY, page 4B

Gamecocks upset No. 5 Rebels, 16-10 By PETE IACOBELLI AP Sports Writer

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Mississippi wasn’t ready for the Top 5 — or South Carolina’s defense. Star passer Jevan Snead was hounded all game and the fourth-ranked Rebels never got in gear, losing to South Carolina 16-10 Thursday night. South Carolina (3-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) had been 1-31 all-time against Top 5 foes, but left Williams-Brice Stadium with the biggest win of coach Steve Spurrier’s five seasons. Spencer Lanning kicked three field goals and fullback Patrick DiMarco a key 2-yard TD catch for the Gamecocks. Ole Miss (2-1, 0-1) had one last chance at a go-ahead TD that would’ve extended its eight-game winning streak. But Snead was sacked by Cliff Mat-

South Carolina’s Tori Gurley makes a catch for a first down as Mississippi’s Marshay Green tries to stop him during the first half of Thursday’s game in Columbia, S.C. thews, then had a fourth-down pass knocked away by Darian Stewart. The Rebels began the day with their highest ranking in

nearly four decades. But they lost their SEC opener for the sixth straight season — and will likely drop down the polls once the new rankings come out.

The Gamecocks jumped around when the game ended, celebrating a victory these players had never enjoyed before at their own stadium. South Carolina’s lone top-5 win came at North Carolina in 1981. Snead came into the season with a Tim Tebow-like buzz — Spurrier even voted him preseason first-team SEC quarterback before changing to Tebow. Snead, though, flopped in front a national audience eager to see what the Rebels were made of. The Ole Miss senior missed six straight throws during one stretch and only once came through with a critical play. His 45-yard TD pass to Markeith Summers with under 10 minutes left in the game that cut it to 16-10. Please see GAMECOCKS, page 4B

Flip Murray agrees to one-year deal with Bobcats By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTE — The Charlotte Bobcats came to terms late Thursday with free agent guard Ronald “Flip” Murray on a one-year, $1.99 million deal. Agent Mark Termini said Murray chose the Bobcats after also having discussions with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He averaged 12.2 points last season coming off the bench for the Atlanta Hawks, and gives coach

Larry Brown more options in the backcourt. Termini said the 6-foot3 Murray will sign with the Bobcats this weekend for the NBA’s biannual exception and be at training camp next week. The move gives the Bobcats a versatile veteran who can play both guard positions. Brown was looking for someone who could play point guard behind Raymond Felton and D.J. Augustin and could also score off the bench. Charlotte ranked last in

the league in scoring last season. The agreement comes a day after Felton signed a one-year, $5.5 million qualifying offer after talks on a long-term contract broke off. Felton is expected to start the season as the top point guard. Augustin, the No. 9 pick in the 2008 draft, is his backup. Murray, the first free agent signed by Charlotte this offseason, could also spell shooting guard Raja Bell, who was slowed by injuries late last season.

The 30-year-old Murray has averaged 9.9 points in seven previous NBA seasons with Milwaukee, Seattle, Cleveland, Detroit, Indiana and Atlanta. He’s a career 42 percent shooter and last year shot 36 percent from 3-point range. Murray will join a team that went 35-47 last season in Brown’s first year in Charlotte. The Bobcats’ biggest offseason move was to trade Emeka Okafor to New Orleans for center Tyson Chandler.

to make some careless mistakes out there,” said Burton. Northern will be looking for their first conference win when they host rival Southern Vance Tuesday. “I can guarantee you emotions are going to be running high on both teams. That’s a key match,” said Hoyle. “We’ve got to win these close matches. We went five with Orange and didn’t win. At least this one, we were close. I thought we gave it all we had.” Burton said her team needs to work on holding on to the momentum when they have it. “You win two games, you’ve got to put it away

in the third. That’s something we definitely have to work on.” Webb hosts Franklinton Monday before traveling to Cardinal Gibbons Tuesday.

WARRIORS WIN, from page 1B brought Northern to within three at 13-10, and an Emily Ellington kill made it 20-18. But Webb held onto the lead for the entire set and won 25-20. Set two was a backand-forth affair, with the teams trading points throughout. The score was tied 11 times. Northern led by three at 12-9 — their biggest lead of the set. Webb tied it at 13, and took over the lead at 17-16. With the score tied at 23, Webb reeled off the next two to take a big twoset advantage. “I felt like the first two games we waited to see what they were going to deal to us rather than just take it to them,” said Hoyle. “Finally we got over the hump and actually started playing some pretty good ball.” Northern began to get a little momentum in set three, opening with a 6-3 lead after a Robin Butler kill. Webb rallied to tie it at 12, and took the lead on the next point. Two straight Thompson kills gave the Vikings a 17-15 lead. Webb tied it again at 20, but a 5-1 Northern rally won the

set 25-21 as the Vikings began their comeback. The fourth set belonged to the Vikings. A 7-2 lead grew to a 15-9 advantage. A Reese kill lowered the deficit to two at 18-16, but Northern had the edge the entire set, winning it 2522. Ellington had five kills in the set. Northern’s momentum carried over into the beginning of the final set, and they scored the first five points. But Webb scored the next four, prompting Hoyle to call a time out. The first of Blair’s blocks tied it at six, but Northern broke serve on the next point. A Thompson kill was answered by a kill from Reese, putting the score at 9-8 Northern. Reese’s block on the next point tied it up, and Webb won the next volley to take the 10-9 lead. Up 13-12, Webb closed it out with a kill from Kiana Morton and Blair’s final block for game point. “They went out guns blazing in the first two games. Second two games, I think they were getting them just a little tired. They were starting

AL Roundup

Tigers one win closer to division title Tigers 6, Indians 5 CLEVELAND (AP) — Justin Verlander pitched the Detroit Tigers closer to a division title and pushed the Cleveland Indians within one loss of matching a franchise record for futility with a 6-5 win on Thursday night. Verlander (17-9) struck out 11 in seven innings and Carlos Guillen had three hits and an RBI as the Tigers handed Cleveland its 11th straight loss. The Indians haven’t dropped 11 in a row since setting a club record with 12 consecutive losses in 1931. With the win, Detroit moved three games ahead of the idle Minnesota Twins in the AL’s Central Division.

Athletics 12, Rangers 3 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Jack Cust homered to help rookie Brett Anderson win his fourth straight start, Cliff Pennington hit a two-run triple and the Athletics salvaged a split of their four-game series against Texas. Anderson (11-10), who has struggled for run support much of the year, allowed three runs, one earned, and six hits in 5 2-3 innings. He improved to 8-3 over his last 16 starts. Mariners 5, Blue Jays 4 TORONTO (AP) — Felix Hernandez had a seasonhigh 11 strikeouts, Josh Wilson hit a tiebreaking two-run triple in the eighth

inning for Seattle. Hernandez (17-5) allowed four runs, three earned, and seven hits in eight innings to improve to 5-0 with a 1.57 ERA in his last six starts. Franklin Gutierrez hit a two-run homer for Seattle, which has won six of eight. Wilson gave the Mariners a 5-3 lead with a two-out triple to right off left-hander Jesse Carlson (1-6), scoring Adrian Beltre and Bill Hall.

Red Sox 10, Royals 3 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — David Ortiz homered and drove in three runs, and Clay Buchholz took a shutout into the seventh inning to help Boston move closer to the postseason.

Jacoby Ellsbury had four hits and two RBIs, Victor Martinez extended his hitting streak to 23 games and Dustin Pedroia pushed his to 16 games, moving Boston within four games of clinching the AL wild card. Royals starter Anthony Lerew (0-1) had a solid return to the majors. Back from Tommy John surgery, the right-hander Lerew allowed two earned runs — four total — on seven hits in 4 2-3 innings. Buchholz (7-3) has solidified his spot in Boston’s postseason rotation, going 6-0 over his last eight starts after an uneven start to the season. He allowed five hits and struck out eight in 6 2-3 innings.

NL Roundup

Dodgers hand Nationals 100th loss Dodgers 7, Nationals 6 WASHINGTON (AP) — Rafael Furcal hit a goahead homer in the eighth inning Thursday night, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Washington 7-6 to hand the Nationals their 100th loss of the season. Furcal’s drive off Ron Villone (4-6) was his fourth hit of the game. Ramon Troncoso (5-4) pitched 1 1-3 innings to get the win, and Jonathan Broxton finished for his 36th save. The win reduced the Dodgers’ magic number to one for clinching a playoff berth. The Nationals, who were 59-102 last season, are the first NL franchise to lose 100 games in consecutive seasons since the San Diego Padres, who dropped 102 in both 1973 and 1974. In five seasons in Washington, the Nationals already have matched the number of 100-loss

seasons the franchise had during its 36 seasons as the Montreal Expos — and that includes the formative 110-loss season as an expansion team in 1969.

Padres 5, Rockies 4 DENVER (AP) — Nick Hundley homered to start the comeback and drove in the tiebreaking run with an eighth-inning single off Rafael Betancourt, and San Diego dealt the NL wild card-leading Rockies a disheartening loss. The Rockies’ cushion in the wild-card race was trimmed to 3 1/2 games over idle Atlanta, and the San Francisco Giants had a chance to cut their deficit to three games. They played the Chicago Cubs on the West Coast on Thursday night. Joe Beimel (1-6) took the loss for Colorado, allowing one run while getting just two outs, and Adam Rus-

sell (3-1) retired the only batter he faced to pick up the win. Rookie right-hander Luke Gregerson got five outs for his first career save in six chances.

Phillies 9, Brewers 4 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Jimmy Rollins capped a six-run fifth inning with a three-run homer and Ryan Howard drove in two runs to help Philadelphia rookie J.A. Happ earn his 11th win. Pedro Feliz had three hits, scored twice and drove in a run for Philadelphia, who amassed 14 hits and reduced their magic number to clinch the NL East to four. Howard came into the game an RBI behind Prince Fielder, who entered with 131, for the major league lead, but he drove in Chase Utley with two outs in the first

GAMECOCKS, from page 1B South Carolina’s defense had to come through after that because the offense, which controlled things for much of the first three quarters went threeand-out on its final four possessions. Snead’s 11-yard pass to Pat Patterson brought Ole Miss to the Gamecock 32 with 2:55 to play. Then coach Houston Nutt tried to outfox South Carolina. A carry by Brandon Bolden out of the “Wild Rebel� package went for a yard. A double reverse to Dexter McCluster lost 4 yards. Matthews followed with his sack of Snead before Stewart preserved the win by batting down the final pass. Snead had thrown at least two TD passes in each of his past eight

games. He finished this game 7 of 21 for 107 yards. Right from the start, Snead and the Rebels looked tight. They had only four drives in the opening half, three that ended without a first down. Eric Norwood ended the Rebels’ first drive with his school-record 27th sack. Snead passed for just 30 yards as the Rebels were outgained by South Carolina 181-71 in the first 30 minutes. Bolden appeared to get things going with a 59-yard touchdown run. A holding penalty, however, brought that back and the Rebels eventually settled for their only points of the half on Joshua Shene’s 42yard field goal. Mississippi came close to scoring just once more,

but instead of another field goal, Nutt went with a fake. Holder Justin Sparks’ pass to Derrick Davis came up 2 yards shy of a first down. The Gamecocks had more plays and more yardage. They, too, though had trouble finding the end zone. Stephen Garcia fumbled away one drive after a sack on Ole Miss 16 in the first quarter. An illegal shift on the Rebels’ 4 led to Lanning’s first field goal. Freshman receiver Tori Gurley caught Garcia’s pass and took it in for a 12-yard score right before halftime. But South Carolina was flagged for an ineligible receiver downfield. Lanning converted a 20-yard field goal to put the Gamecocks ahead 6-3 at the break.

and added another in the eighth. Fielder hit a run-scoring grounder in the bottom of the ninth to tie the sluggers at 132.

Reds 4, Pirates 1 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Bronson Arroyo limited Pittsburgh to one run over seven innings and the Reds completed their second sweep of the plummeting Pirates in less than a month. Joey Votto had a tworun double following Drew Sutton’s RBI double in a four-run third inning against Charlie Morton (4-9) as the Reds won their eighth in a row against the last-place Pirates.

GRETZKY, from page 1B promote hockey in the desert. But Gretzky was never much of a presence in the Phoenix sports scene, and he virtually disappeared after owner Jerry Moyes filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in May. Gretzky’s father, Walter, said he spoke to his son Thursday and said he felt sorry for Wayne because he’s caught in the middle. “No matter what happens, they’ll say it was all because of Wayne,� Walter Gretzky told Hamilton’s CHCH News. “Everybody has to find a fall guy and they’ll point their finger at Wayne even though he had nothing to do with this.� Walter Gretzky said his son plans to spend time with his family and take a break from hockey for now. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman praised Gretzky’s efforts and said the league hopes Gretzky will have a prominent role with the Coyotes if the NHL’s bid for the team is successful. Gretzky was nowhere to be found when Tippett, decked out in a brick-red Coyotes warmup suit, was introduced at a news conference. Maloney said he had a “first inkling� in June that Gretzky might not return as coach. Maloney said he decided to pursue Tippett, who had been fired by the Stars in June despite making the Stanley Cup playoffs five times in six seasons. “I probably spent all of June and July trying to figure out how I could convince (Tippett) to come here,� Maloney said. Maloney said the

Coyotes signed Tippett to a four-year deal — a contract that makes him perhaps the most stable piece in the organization. Financial terms weren’t disclosed. The 48-year-old Tippett went 271-162-59 in six seasons with the Stars. Captain Shane Doan said news of Gretzky’s resignation “was definitely a surprise.� “I’m not angry,� Doan said. “We’re moving on. Everyone realizes that this situation’s unique. People are saying, ’Well, this should have been done, that should have been done.’ It’s such a unique situation where he’s part of management, he’s part of an ownership group, it’s in bankruptcy court. I mean, everything is so convoluted that nobody really knows what’s going on.� Gretzky is the leading scorer in NHL history, but he brought little of his magical on-ice form when he moved behind the bench. Gretzky’s tenure as coach began in 200506 and was marked by turmoil. The Coyotes went 3839-5 in his debut season, winning 16 more games than in the previous season. The team was 36-36-5 with Gretzky on the bench; he missed five games for family reasons. It was a trying year for Gretzky. His mother, Phyllis, and grandmother, Betty Hockin, both died during the season. Assistant coach and friend Rick Tocchet was arrested for allegedly running an illegal sports gambling ring. The scandal touched Gretzky when it was revealed that his wife, Janet, had placed bets.

Sean O’Hair takes 1-shot lead over Woods, others By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

ATLANTA (AP) — Sean O’Hair knew he would need some help from Tiger Woods to win the FedEx Cup. He got more than he expected. And it was about putting, not points. Woods and O’Hair practiced together on the back nine at East Lake on the eve of the Tour Championship, and O’Hair sought some advice on his putting from the world’s No. 1 player, regarded as among the best in golf with the putter. Woods suggested that O’Hair open the face of the club on the way back so that he could release the blade through the ball. It paid off Thursday when O’Hair made enough putts for a 4-under 66 and a one-shot lead over three players — including Woods. “I’m going to go chew him out right now,” Woods said. Woods was joking, for it is typical in this sport for players to help each

Sean O'Hair tips his cap after completing his first round of the Tour Championship at the East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta Thursday. other even as they’re tried to beat each other. O’Hair is the first to concede that his putting has held him back in his five years on tour, and he wasn’t afraid to ask. “I believe in what he said, and I think it’s the key for me to kind of take my putting to another level,” O’Hair said. “Getting advice like that from good players is obviously awesome, but getting it

Heels getting production from young wide receivers By AARON BEARD AP Sports Writer

CHAPEL HILL — T.J. Yates doesn’t have to guess whether his young receivers are doing their homework as they try to grasp North Carolina’s offense. The proof is tacked up on a door inside the Kenan Football Center. “We’ve got sign-up sheets to see who’s watching film,” the quarterback said. “Last week we had to add three extra sheets to the door because there were so many people watching film in the wide receivers’ meeting room. That’s definitely an encouraging thing to see.” It hasn’t taken long for the results to show on the field, either. Two strong performances from Erik Highsmith and a long touchdown catch from Jheranie Boyd has allowed the No. 22 Tar Heels to turn their most glaring weakness of the preseason into reason for optimism heading into this weekend’s trip to Georgia Tech. “They’re still a work in progress,” coach Butch Davis said. “They’re starting to scratch the surface, but it’s going to be every single week (that) they’ve got to continue to grow.” Highsmith has been the quickest study. The true freshman came through with several key catches in the comeback win at Connecticut, then followed with six catches for 113 yards and a touchdown in last weekend’s win against East Carolina. Boyd, also a freshman, contributed with a juggling 59-yard TD catch in that game, while junior Greg Little has 15 catches for 135 yards in the first three games. Those numbers aren’t anything like what the Tar Heels (3-0) had last year in Hakeem Nicks, Brandon Tate and Brooks Foster, but they’re a good start. “I think they’re just starting to mature and get more comfortable,” Georgia Tech defensive coordinator Dave Wommack said. “You notice Highsmith and the way he’s come on. I think (Yates) was more comfortable back there (against East Carolina). I know they have a lot of talent. They’re developing real nicely.” The Tar Heels knew they would have to find someone to fill the shoes of

their departed NFL trio. Nicks was a first-round NFL draft pick with 1,222 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns; Tate was a third-round pick despite going down at midseason with a knee injury; and Foster was a fifth-rounder. That left tailback Shaun Draughn as the leading returning receiver with 16 catches for 81 yards and a score, while Little had 24 career catches while splitting time between running back and receiver. Three games later, Highsmith — a soft-spoken kid who looks younger than his 18 years — is running with the confidence befitting a go-to veteran. He made his biggest plays against the Pirates in the fourth quarter of a one-possession game. First, he took a quick out from Yates and sprinted 43 yards for first down. Two plays later, Yates rolled to his left and found Highsmith again for a 10-yard gain and another first down that ultimately led to the game-clinching touchdown. “It’s a big transition from high school football,” Highsmith said. “Just learning the plays takes a toll on you because they threw so much at us during the summer and training camp. But I’m pretty sure I’ve got most of it down. Just don’t expect the Tar Heel coaches to overly patient. When asked how understanding he’ll be when players make youthful mistakes, receivers coach Charlie Williams put it bluntly: “We’re understanding to the fact that two drops in the same game means it’s time for somebody else to be in there.” The Tar Heels have several other options, including freshman Joshua Adams and converted running back Johnny White, a junior. North Carolina also figures to get a boost this weekend with the expected return of Dwight Jones, a talented sophomore who was expected to start opposite Little for the opener before being sidelined following surgery on his right knee. Whether Highsmith stays in a leading role or another youngster steps up, the Tar Heels are hoping the result is the same: namely steady, consistent production.

from basically the greatest of all time is pretty cool. “I mean, I’m his competition, for him to help me out like he did was very classy, I thought.” The tip didn’t take overnight, but it was good enough on greens that were far more firm than any of the 30-man field could have imagined after so much rain in Atlanta over the last week. Woods recovered from a shaky start with three birdies over a four-hole stretch on the back nine for a 67, putting him one shot behind with Padraig Harrington and British Open champion Stewart Cink. Only eight players managed to break par in the final FedEx Cup playoff event, with a $10 million bonus going to the winner. O’Hair is the No. 7 seed, meaning he would have to win the Tour Championship and have Woods finish in a three-way tie for second or worse. So far, so good. And so much golf left to be played. O’Hair could only imag-

Woods doesn’t regret giving O’Hair the putting advice. “It’s very simple,” Woods said. “You always help your friends. Sean is a friend of mine, and like all my friends, you always try to make their life better somehow. Sean has been struggling a bit on the greens this year, and I thought I could offer a little bit of help and insight to how he could change that.” Woods, who is in the best shape to capture the FedEx Cup as the No. 1 seed, could have used some help early in the round.

par-3 sixth, and making bogey on the eighth from the rough to go 1 over. He was six shots behind at one point, then closed quickly. “This golf course, you have to be very patient, especially with greens this firm,” Woods said. “It’s really hard to get the ball close unless you drive the ball in the fairway and have a short iron in.” U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover had a 68, and only three other players managed to break par — Retief Goosen, Steve Marino and Dustin Johnson, who were at 69. Stricker, the No. 2 seed, was among those at 70. It was hard to believe that a course that was closed Monday and part of Tuesday because of 20 inches of rain over the past week could deliver some of the firmest greens on tour this year.

fairly long, and then the greens are just incredibly firm, probably the most firm we’ve played all year,” O’Hair said. “Maybe The Players Championship is a close second. Kind of ironic since we got so much rain.” O’Hair was sporty from the rough, too. He made his first birdie with a wedge out of the rough on No. 3 that stopped a foot away, then made another birdie at No. 12 under similar circumstances, from the right rough with just enough spin to stop 2 feet from the hole. Cink narrowly made the 30-man field at No. 26 and the scenarios are too many to count for him to win the FedEx Cup. All he cared about Thursday was breaking par, like so many other players. “Under par ... the golf course, considering all that rain we had, it’s really dried out, and the greens are like bricks,” he said. “You have to be very smart coming into the greens to give yourself any kind of aggressive birdies.” Chicago Cubs at San Francisco, 4:10 p.m. Cincinnati at Houston, 7:05 p.m. L.A.

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

(Answers tomorrow) ACRID BROGUE RENEGE Jumbles: FATAL Answer: What the medical students considered the lecture on body parts — AN ORGAN RECITAL

SUDOKU

Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). The one you love needs no changing or improving. And even if he or she did, you wouldn’t be the one to do it. Knowing that you’re only responsible for yourself makes you feel happy and free. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You want to be nurtured and cared for, but you don’t want to be mothered. Sweetly draw the boundaries or enforce the ones you have already. It may feel uncomfortable to speak up, but it’s better that you do. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll return to friends, be warmly received, and it will feel like coming home. It’s nice to belong somewhere in this big crazy world, and you’re so loved that you belong in many places. CANCER (June 22-July 22). People have always described you as a social butterfly, but now you are a social falcon! Your wit and observations are especially keen, and a key event presents you with the perfect opportunity to show your stuff. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Be careful what you wish for today. What appears on the outside to be a dream life may indeed be very difficult to live for reasons you cannot know until you’re on the inside. Stay grounded in your values. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A loved one’s health will change for the better. Good news is easy to share, and this is one time when you enjoy being the messenger. Take advantage of the opportunity to reach out to those you haven’t talked to in a while.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2009

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re financially responsible and stable on your own. And yet, you could benefit greatly from partnering up with someone on equally solid ground. Keep your eyes peeled — a potential investor is in your midst. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Turn that cell phone off, and don’t be too quick to return your calls. It’s also not necessary to explain where you’ve been and what you were doing. A little mystery around you keeps things interesting. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You long to be listened to. It’s been a while since a selfless person gave you undivided attention because he or she was genuinely interested in what you had to say. A new friend will fulfill this role. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Hopefully you are in a competitive mood, because there are a lot of people around you who want the same thing you do. By the end of the day, the prize will go to the one who doesn’t settle for less. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Something that happens at a social gathering could produce a small rift between you and your partner. It’s easily remedied. You weren’t at fault, but that doesn’t matter. A small gesture will go a long way. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You appreciate honesty in others. You react to whatever they deal you in a straightforward, non-emotional way. People want to be around you because you make them feel that they can be how they really are.
