… and the 1,670 struggling schools where students seek it By CARyN ROUSSEAU aSSoCiated preSS Writer

CHICAGO — Nik Spayne wakes just before 6 a.m. on school days at his suburban Elgin home, in time to take an hourlong train ride and a bus to the Chicago Academy for the Arts. It’s regular classroom work in the morning for the 17-year-old senior before three hours of dance and vocal training. By the time he’s finished with another few hours of rehearsal and has commuted home, it’s 8 p.m. — more than 14 hours since he woke up. “Then I still need to do my homework and learn my lines and not have a social life and go to bed and do it all again,” Spayne said, sitting in a science lab after finishing his modern dance class. “But it’s worth it.” Spayne, an aspiring musical theater performer, is one of nearly 1.5 million students around the country who attend one of about 1,670 performing arts high schools, colleges or other instructional programs, according to the nonprofit group Arts School Network. After seeing the 1980 movie “Fame,” which follows New York City performing arts students, Spayne thought, “Wouldn’t it be cool to go to a school like that?” Nearly 30 years later, an updated remake of “Fame” is to debut Friday. The movie’s trailer has one student asking: “Somebody’s gotta make it out there. Why can’t it be me?”

Nik Spayne of Elgin, Ill., studies in the hallway at the Chicago Academy for the Arts. Spayne, 17, is one of nearly 1.5 million aspiring student actors, dancers and vocalists nationally, attending 1,670 performing arts schools seeking that spotlight of “Fame.” The competitive drive and quest for success is still present at performing arts schools, which are private, public and charter, but officials say the recession has left them with less money and more to do. They educate students in the classical arts, but also have modern offerings, such as hip-hop dance and pop vocals. In addition, the schools have started teaching business courses to help budding artists learn to make a living. Enrollment has fallen at some private performing arts schools and endowments have lost value, said Roger Shoemaker, associate head for the arts at the boarding school Walnut Hill in Natick, Mass. He said families under financial pressure can no longer afford the tuition,

which at private schools can cost tens of thousands of dollars a year. Some students can receive scholarships or other financial assistance. The school’s endowments have lost 25 percent, said Shoemaker. Other schools say they’ve had to cut arts teachers and budgets. “Across the board it makes it much more difficult,” he said. “The environment for fundraising is pretty difficult. We made our fundraising goal last year, but not everybody can say that.” School officials said they’ve had to become more creative in how they raise money, with some institutions putting on benefit shows featuring famous alumni or current students.

‘Adriatica,’ Texas

At left, students at the Chicago Academy for the Arts glide down the floor in a modern dance class.

The schools also have responded with new courses that include digital filmmaking, music engineering and electric and acoustic guitar. The classes help find common ground with students who may not be as interested in the classical arts, like ballet or opera, said Ralph Opacic, executive director of Orange County High School for the Arts in Santa Ana, Calif. “We’re trying to use those more current art forms to get them to explore and expand and then hopefully fall in love with classical arts,” Opacic said. Schools have begun exposing students to the business side of arts and entertainment as well, offering courses that equip them with the skills needed to become entrepreneurs.

“It’s important for them to realize today you’ve got to be incredibly versatile,” said Isidore Rudnick, artistic director at The School for Creative and Performing Arts in Cincinnati, home of the recent MTV reality show “Taking the Stage.” “You’ve got to have a savvy business sense. It’s not good enough to be a good actor or a good musician,” Rudnick said. Coursework aside, there’s a stronger reason students are attracted to a performing arts school. “They’re all looking for a place where they can be really passionate as well as becoming a well-rounded person,” said Lauren Williams, a 17-year-old senior and oboe major at Chicago Academy for the Arts. “The classes are so incredibly

structured and formulated. They’re so engaging and so interesting because they connect to your art.” The school’s alumni include actress Lara Flynn Boyle, dancer Tom Gold of the New York City Ballet and film composer Alex Wurman. While “Fame” may be the movie version of what happens in the halls and rehearsal rooms, it does show the true spirit of a performing arts high school, said Rory Pullens, head of school at Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington. “’Fame’ captures that beautifully and we see that manifest in the students every single day,” Pullens said. “They look at the celebrity and the flash and the glory and all of that.” But he said when they enter the halls with “the sweat and the work ethic they need to possess, they come out appreciating the work they’ve put into this and the skill they develop.” For Spayne, the 25 hours a week of rehearsals will go on. He’s applying to colleges to study musical theater and says even if he has to wait tables it will all be worth it if he can have the chance to perform. “It’s almost sacred, in a way, that feeling that you get when you’re on stage,” Spayne said. “Once you’ve gotten it, then you keep striving for that feeling again and so you just immerse yourself in the arts.” On the Net: • “Fame” movie: http://www.

Developer builds subdivision inspired by Croatian village By JAMIE STENGLE aSSociated preSS Writer

MCKINNEY, Texas — From a chapel sitting serenely on a sliver of land jutting out on a lake, to stone homes with red tile roofs clustered on winding lanes, developer Jeff Blackard is working to bring European village life to a Texas suburb. “What we’re really doing is creating a real, functioning village,” Blackard said. Inspired by Supetar, a port city on the Croatian island of Brac, Blackard began work on the “Adriatica” development about 30 miles north of Dallas a few years ago. So far, it contains about a dozen single-family homes and a row of businesses and shops, including a day spa, an Italian restaurant, a Realtor’s office, a wine bistro and a Starbucks. By the end of next year, expect a replica of Supetar’s port lining the lake. Eventually, plans for the 45-acre development call for 70 or so houses, about 280 condominium units, 100 retail establishments, 100 offices and an 80-room hotel. A replica of Venice’s St. Mark’s Square is planned to serve as a community meeting place. For Anne Petrasek, who has lived at Adriatica since January with her family, it already feels like the ideal European village. “It’s like going on vacation every weekend,” she said. Petrasek, 52, used to live about five minutes away in a more typical suburban development, with a big yard on a golf course. Since moving into her new 3,000-squarefoot, three-bedroom home, she said she’s found the village-type life she wanted, from chatting with people from the balcony to frequenting the development’s shops. “People are more apt to just stop and say hello,” she said. Many of the homes incorporate antique architectural items from Europe, such as gates from Italy. Flowers

cascade from window boxes. Colorful lights are strung above sidewalks in the retail area. There are even plans to anchor a ship in the harbor and serve as a coffee shop. Blackard, a developer of about 15,000 homes during his almost 30-year career, said that after investing in a hotel in Supetar, it occurred to him that American housing developments should be

more like European villages. “Developers think they put in a fountain and a gazebo and think it’s a community, but it’s not,” he said. “One time I wanted to do it right at all costs,” he said, adding that zoning will allow for features such as zero setbacks from houses to the road, so that, as in a European village, the homes are right off the lanes.

Two-hour parking in parts of downtown may be reduced to 90 minutes if Henderson City Council approves a recommendation by the Downtown Development Commission. Council may approve a trial run for the idea at its meeting Monday night. The affected areas are Garnett Street from Montgomery to Winder streets and the one block on Breckenridge Street from Garnett to Wyche streets. According to council’s agenda material, businesses in the ares were surveyed in August at the request of City Manager Ray Griffin, with only one preferring the two-hour limit. Griffin noted in the agenda material that some employees of downtown businesses park on the street and move their cars every two hours to avoid getting a ticket. If council approves, the new limit would be tried for six months. In other business on the agenda, council:


Vance receives grant for health care center By AL WHELESS Daily Dispatch Writer

The North Carolina Rural Economic Development Center has awarded a $360,000 grant to Vance County for renovation of the former Henderson Sarah W. Curl, 92 Lighthouse Entertainment Center Obituaries, 4A at 100 Park View Drive West for an integrated health care center. County Manager Jerry Ayscue said Thursday that the center is already in operation. The complex off Beckford Drive is expected to generate 30 jobs while serving the indigent and the unin-

Adriatica reminded Amparo Abeyta of her native Mexico, so she decided to open a flower shop there. “I love the style,” she said. Eventually, Blackard says, he expects somewhere between 1,000 to 1,500 people to live at Adriatica. Bill Hight, a Dallas restaurant owner moved there with his wife in June 2008. Their 4,400-square-foot home with a patio facing the lake has European elements like arches, balconies, textured walls and a landscaped courtyard. “I think it’s just a slower, more relaxing pace,” said Hight, 69.

ington, D.C., said his group doesn’t keep data on themes in housing developments, but he doesn’t know of anything similar to Adriatica. “In this market, it’s challenging. So if you can make your product stand out, you’ve got a winner,” Melman said. Edward John, a Christian pop singer from Oslo, Norway, said that when he relocated to McKinney to be near his record label, he wasn’t pleased with the town. Then one day while jogging he stopped by an open house at Adriatica. It made him feel like he was back in Europe, he said, and he now plans to build a home there. “I love this area. Coming from Europe, I’m used to the buzz and the people. When I first came here (to Texas) I thought, ‘How am I going to

Unemployment rates dropped in 90 North Carolina counties in August, including Vance, Granville and Warren, according to statistics released Friday by the state’s Employment Security Commission. Rates increased in six counties and remained the same in four. “Rates have decreased in many of these counties for various reasons,” said ESC Chairman Moses Carey Jr. “Most counties experienced some loss in the labor force. People moving away and looking for work in other areas, students returning to school or some people exhausting their benefits are reasons for such declines. This can have an impact on the unemployment rate.” The improvement in most of the counties brought the state jobless rate down from 11.1 percent in July to 10.7 percent in August. In Vance County, the rate dropped to 13.4

The four-year-old building — which was bought last March by The Rural Health Group of Roanoke Rapids — will have 9,778 square feet of space on the first floor for clinical care and 2,347 square feet on the second floor for administration. The Rural Health Group will build two family-practice suites, two behavioral-health offices, a six-chair dental office, a patient-education room and administrative offices. Officials said the company will

A not so itsy-bitsy spider bugs the pope in Prague PRAGUE (AP) — President Barack Obama had his fly. Now Pope Benedict XVI has his spider. A large arachnid appeared on the pope’s white robes as he addressed politicians and diplomats in Prague on Saturday afternoon. The pope didn’t seem to notice at first — but journalists following the speech on a large screen flinched as the spider inched toward Benedict’s neck. It disappeared from view for a moment, but then could be seen crawl-

But it didn’t go away — it reappeared on the pope’s left shoulder and scampered down his robe. As the pope left the medieval Prague Castle’s ornate Spanish Hall, the spider could be seen hanging from a piece of web. In June, Obama now famously swatted and killed a fly that intruded on an interview for CNBC at the White House.

Vance school chief recognized for dropout prevention work Vance County Schools Superintendent Dr. Norman Shearin is featured as the “Spotlight Member” in a book recently published by Cambridge Publishing, Top 101 Industry Experts: Tools to Help You on the Road to Success. The spotlight features a biography of Vance County ’s schools chief and a questionand-answer exchange on career goals, mentors and Shearin professional accomplishments, among various topics. “I feel extremely proud,” he said of the publication. “I was surprised to be included. I see this as a great honor for me personally and for our school system.” Shearin’s profile — under the industry title of educational administration ­— is among a group of industry leaders from various fields, from economics and agronomy to nuclear weapons research and development,

from marriage counseling to military finance, for example. Shearin said he was nominated for inclusion in the book but was not informed who made the nomination. The recognition came from “a lot of work I did with the National Dropout Prevention Board and for my 44 years in education both here in North Carolina and in Florida,” Shearin said. “It is the biggest honor I have ever gotten.” In his five-page profile, Shearin is credited for helping Vance County “achieve significant academic gains and eliminate barriers to student progression such as behavioral problems, low test scores and inadequate technology.” In 2007, Shearin was selected as the Central Carolina Regional Education Service Alliance Superintendent of the Year. He was given the Crystal Star Award from the National Dropout Prevention Center/Network in 2004. The book is a part of the Cambridge Who’s Who series of executive, professional and entrepreneur biogra-

phies in industry and career fields. The Who’s Who Registry is available in book form and online, providing a resource for Cambridge members. Inclusion in the Registry is an honor limited to individuals who have demonstrated leadership and achievement in their industry and occupation, according to a Cambridge announcement. The profiles highlight members’ expertise, achievements, affiliations and education, making it easy for members to use it for job recruitment, career enhancement and new business development. Cambridge says that every major profession is represented by 400,000 active executive, professional and entrepreneur members. The membership base is international, with the majority of members in the United States, Canada, Australia and England . The Top 101 was selected from more than 250,000 executives, professionals and entrepreneurs, Cambridge said.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The remains of a U.S. soldier who has been missing since a 1965 helicopter crash in South Vietnam have been returned to Nebraska. A casket containing Spec. Donald Grella’s body was flown from Hawaii to Omaha on Saturday. Grella’s sister, Shirley Haase of

Omaha, accompanied his remains. Haase learned in July that Grella’s body was among the remains found at a helicopter crash site near An Khe, Vietnam, in 2006. The helicopter went down on Dec. 28, 1965, during a supply mission. The pilot radioed before the crash that

bad weather and darkness made flying difficult. Grella was 25. It was three years before the crash site was excavated. Grella will be buried in his hometown of Laurel. A funeral is scheduled for Oct. 3 at the Laurel-Concord High School gym.

Congresswoman’s husband dies on mountain climb NEW YORK (AP) — The husband of U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney has died on a mountain climbing expedition in the Himalayas, aides to the congresswoman said Saturday. Clifton Maloney, a millionaire investment banker and avid climber, was resting in a high-altitude camp after a successful ascent to the summit of the world’s sixth-

highest mountain when he died. He was 71, a late age for such a grueling endeavor, but had been in excellent health, aides said. Rep. Maloney, a Democrat, was “very shaken” by the death, they said. Arrangements were still being made Saturday to recover the body from the slopes of Cho Oyu, a 26,906-

foot peak that straddles the border of Nepal and Tibet. Maloney reached the summit with a professional climbing partner and guide, Marty Schmidt, on Friday, or Thursday night Eastern Daylight Time. They rested overnight at a camp at about 23,000 feet. Maloney died unexpectedly the next day after going to sleep in his tent, Nolan said.

New signs, marketing for Triangle North From STAFF REPORTS

Triangle North has installed new entrance signs at all business parks and launched direct-mail campaigns to attract specific companies in highpotential industry sectors. The signs at all four parks aim to increase the business parks’ visibility and support the aggressive targeted marketing efforts that are under way. Donations from Embarq, Progress Energy and PSNC Energy and the Franklin County Committee of 100 made the signs possible. Meanwhile, about 300 life sciences companies considered to have a strong potential for expansion to an East Coast market received personal invitations from Triangle North Executive Director Bud Cohoon to consider the area for a startup or expansion. The companies were identified in a marketing study conducted by Triangle North and the N.C. Biotechnology Center.

Triangle North has installed new signs at each of its four business parks to increase visibility. They include pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies that could benefit from locating in close proximity to the Research Triangle Region’s life sciences center. Medical device com-

panies considered to be strong candidates for locating to Triangle North business parks have received personal letters from Cohoon promoting the parks as expansion locations.

Anyone with information about life sciences or medical device companies considering expansion should contact Cohoon at or (252) 436-6098. Triangle North’s marketing strategy relies on making personal contact with individuals and organizations that can help connect park developers with companies and startups needing affordable space to grow their businesses. Representatives speak regularly to civic associations, real estate groups, government bodies and others to explain the benefits the tax-advantaged netework of business parks offers. Among them is a $12,500 tax credit for every job a company creates in any of the parks — Triangle North Franklin, Granville, Vance and Warren, Anyone interested in scheduling a speaker should contact Cohoon.

Israeli and Arab hikers tell clashing tales of the land By DIAA HADID Associated Press Writer

RAMOT MENASHE PARK, Israel — Israeli and Palestinian hikers are taking to the hills in the footsteps of their ancestors — deploying maps, holy texts and walking boots in the long-running battle for control of the Holy Land. In Israel and the West Bank, bands of enthusiasts trek over the same paths mentioned in antiquity and past villages abandoned to wars. But Israeli and Palestinian hikers mostly emphasize their attachment to the land and ignore each other’s historical footprints. In northern Israel’s Ramot Menashe Park, guide Innon Kahalany recently led a group past pungent fig trees, bringing to life characters of the Old Testament, which he calls Israel’s first guide book. He vividly described how on nearby Mount Carmel, the Jewish prophet Elijah challenged the priests of the heathen god Baal. But his entranced hikers were not told that they were standing near the ruins of seven Arab villages destroyed during the 1948 Mideast war when Israel became a state and hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were driven out or fled. Kahalany said he speaks of those events carefully, if at all. “People don’t like a history lesson, I try to make it easy,” he said. Some 45 miles south, in the West Bank, Palestinian guide Saleh Jawad led a dozen hikers up a grass knoll to the ruins of the ancient village of Khirbet Kfar Ana, now used as grazing lands. His route was dictated not by the distant past, but by the reality of the modern conflict: He avoided sealed-off Israeli military zones and checkpoints, and stayed away from the Jewish settlements that dot the area. Settlers are free to roam the West Bank, which is mostly ruled by Israel and which Palestinians hope

In this July 3 photo, Israelis walk over a bridge during a hike in Ramot Menashe, northern Israel. will be part of their future state. On the other hand, Jawad and other Palestinians would have a hard time getting a permit to enter Israel. At Khirbet Kfar Ana, Jawad described how the village was most likely destroyed a century ago by the Turks who then ruled Palestine and were upset at the villagers for harboring bandits. The conversation quickly fell to tracing a Palestinian connection to the land from biblical times. “This is exactly what this struggle is about,” said Jawad. “It’s the feeling that I’m walking on the land of my ancestors.” Many Palestinians assert they are the descendants of the biblical Canaanites, who inhabited the Holy Land before the Hebrews conquered it. “We never left the land and they can see that,” said George Rishmawi, a hiker who leads a walking group of Palestinian ecotourists. Hiking — from school trips to weekend getaways — is far more ingrained in Israelis than in Palestinians. Pioneering Zionists established a hiking culture to strengthen the connection between ancient Israel and new Jewish immigrants, said Yael Guter, professor of Israel Studies at Bar Ilan University. The same impulse drives the Palestinians, but their recreational hiking is a nascent pastime, hampered by the Israeli restrictions on movement and their own cultural

taboo that regards walking as something only poor people do. Jawad’s three-year-old group was established by environmentalists, including Raja Shehadeh, who wrote a book about the diminishing trails of the West Bank. Rishmawi has created the Palestine Trail — part of a larger regional project called the Abraham Path, a planned 750-mile route that would follow the route of the patriarch revered by both Jews and Muslims from Turkey, where he reputedly first heard the call to God, to his burial place in the West Bank city of Hebron. Some believe hiking could hold a key to reconciliation, acknowledging the history of the other. Eitan Bronstein is the Israeli head of an organization that tries to educate his countrymen about how Palestinians see the 1948 war, including a campaign to signpost Palestinian villages destroyed in 1948, such as those in the Ramot Menashe Park. “It’s important to know,” he said, “because not to know is to continue the conflict without knowing why there is a conflict.”

Tropical storm

Commuters wade through waist-deep floodwaters Saturday following heavy rains brought about by tropical storm Ketsana (locally known as Ondoy) in Manila, Philippines. At least five people have been killed after nearly a month’s worth of rain fell in just six hours Saturday, triggering the worst flooding in the Philippine capital in 42 years, stranding thousands on rooftops in the city and elsewhere as Tropical Storm Ketsana slammed ashore.

Iran to allow IAEA visit to Qom nuclear facility site TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran will allow the U.N. nuclear agency to inspect a newly revealed and still unfinished uranium enrichment facility, the country’s nuclear chief told state television Saturday. Vice President Ali Akbar Salehi didn’t specify when inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency could visit the site, but said it has to be worked out with the agency under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty rules. Iran’s newly revealed enrichment site is said to be in the arid mountains near the holy city of Qom, inside a heavily guarded, underground facility belonging to the elite Revolutionary Guard. The small-scale site is meant to house no more than 3,000 centrifuges — much

head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said Tehran should be praised, not condemned, for voluntarily revealing the existence of the nuclear facility. Iran says the new facility won’t be operational for 18 months so Iran has not violated any IAEA requirements. The Iranians claim to have withdrawn from an agreement with the IAEA requiring them to notify the agency of the intent to build any new nuclear facilities and instead are now only subject to the six-month notification requirement before a facility becomes operational. But the IAEA says Tehran cannot unilaterally withdraw from that bilateral agreement and should have announced just the intent to build the facility.

less than the 8,000 machines at Natanz, Iran’s known industrial-scale enrichment facility. Still, the enriching machines in Qom facility will produce nuclear fuel — or possibly the payload for atomic warheads. President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and French President Nicolas Sarkozy accused Iran on Friday of constructing a secret underground uranium enrichment facility and of hiding its existence from international inspectors for years. But Salehi said there was nothing secret about the site and that Iran complied with U.N. rules that require it to inform the world body’s nuclear agency six months before a uranium enrichment facility becomes operational.

Normally, the eye maintains a delicate balance between tear production and drainage. Most tears are secreted by glands in the upper eyelid, then wash down the cornea and collect in the lower eyelid. Blinking pumps the tears toward the puncta (drainage holes) in each eyelid and into a common aqueduct to the nasolacrimal sac. From there, tears pass downward into the nose and throat, where they are swallowed. In some cases, however, tearing can result from a deformed punctal opening or blocked tear duct. If so, a simple outpatient procedure can re-establish proper drainage by dilating, probing, and irrigating the nasolacrimal drainage system and reopening the passage. Otherwise, silicone tubing can be introduced into the passage to facilitate drainage. Our mission at FOUR COUNTY EYE ASSOCIATES is to enhance the quality of our patients’ lives by compassionately providing the highest level of eye care. We have a long history of excellence performing procedures to help patients with their vision. Since many diseases have no clear symptoms in early stages, by the time a person seeks help for impaired vision, the damage is done. When was the last time you had a comprehensive eye examination? Call 492-8021 to schedule an appointment. We’re located at 451 Ruin Creek Road, Henderson Professional Plaza, Suite 204. P.S. One approach to treating dry eyes involves closing some of the puncta (tear drains) to slow or lessen tear drainage.

Pete O’Geary Mayor of Henderson

✭ Committed ✭ Dedicated

✭ Dignified ✭ Honorable

With a Vision to Move Our City Forward in a Very Positive and Professional Way. I believe in the City of Henderson and that it can, and must, have a brighter and more prosperous future. I love this city and its people, believe in it and its many opportunities. I want to continue working in partnership with the city council, community partners and staff to improve our city and community by laying solid foundations and initiatives for crime reduction, economic growth, safe and vibrant neighborhoods, improved quality of life and a well respected municipal organization that is administered with sound business-like principles, ethics and integrity. I am seeking re-election as your Mayor because I believe these are the right things to be doing and I want to continue helping this city move forward. Over the past 20 months, much has been done to lay the solid foundations and initiatives that will help improve our community as I previously mentioned. Several of which I am most proud include: 1. Strategic Plan: The Council approved the City’s first strategic plan in well over a decade. A Strategic Plan sets the direction in which the city will head and work over the next several years. This plan sets forth 8 strategic objectives that include a) implementing Baldrige quality management principles within city government; b) crime reduction; c) more aggressive economic development, d) aggressive housing; code enforcement; e) maintaining and expanding the City’s infrastructure; f) improving recreational opportunities; g) growing the economy so that the city will have the funding it needs to provide services, and h) developing the City’s workforce.

The Strategic Plan is to be “worked” continuously and updated each year. 2. Improved Inter-Governmental Relations: I want to work more closely with our partners at Vance County government in order to better drive efficiencies and equity in joint programs and service delivery. 3. More Aggressive Economic Development: I am pleased that the City and County came together to reestablish the joint Economic Development Partnership. As the primary municipality and utility provider, the City MUST be an active partner in developing strategies to grow our economy. 4. Reduced Crime: For the first time in at least five years, Part 1 Crimes showed a 6% decrease in the first six months of 2009 when compared to same period for 2008, 2007, 2006 and 2005. This is the FIRST time in five years that crime has shown a downward turn. We must work to keep the trend coming down. 5. Grants: The City secured grants in excess of $6.5M in FY09. This is equivalent to 76 cents on the property tax rate. 6. City Hall: Moving City Hall back downtown was a significant step in putting the seat of City government back downtown in proximity to its other services as well as and County and State government services. 7. Infrastructure: Plans are well underway to obtain permits for expanding the water plant, repairing the sewer collection system, and widening Beckford Drive. If re-elected as Mayor, my plans are: 1. To continue to “work” the Strategic Plan and keep it updated and current with

the business needs and future focus of Henderson, and more importantly, to implement the Plan’s goals and action plans. 2. To continue efforts to reduce crime and make Henderson a safer community by supporting the Police Chief and Department by adopting new ordinances working with the community as needed, via partnerships to create an attitude that crime is not acceptable in our city, to find ways to mitigate the root causes of crime and to support community watch efforts, weed and seed, etc. 3. To be more aggressive with Economic Development by working with our partners and community to develop a multi-focused strategy that will focus on creating new jobs, develop and grow small business, expand our commercial services and retail sector and to re-establish Henderson as a regional center for commerce. 4. To Forge Strong Human Relations among the people of our community. We are a diverse community and we must learn to trust, respect and work together and not allow our differences to continue to divide us. I will form a Task Force comprised of community leaders and citizen representatives to review this matter and offer recommendations to the City. 5. To Clean-up Neighborhoods by even more aggressive code enforcement to tear down dilapidated buildings and homes and to work with grants to help low-moderate income homeowners improve their homes. Additionally, to keep the momentum going to have Beacon Light rehabilitated or demolished. It is not acceptable to

allow it to continue to blight and downgrade the neighborhood and city. 6. To Redevelop Downtown and Neighborhoods by successfully implementing the HOPE VI housing conversion grants. $2 million, to create quality housing in downtown as well as support the efforts of the Redevelopment Commission to successfully implement the Orange Breckenridge Redevelopment Project and work with Vance Granville Community College and others to locate classrooms and services in downtown. 7. To Improve our Infrastructure by developing and implementing a funded multi-year capital improvements plan for water, sewer and transportation needs, to continue to pursue the highspeed passenger rail station in downtown, to expand the regional water plant so that our community will have adequate water supplies for the next 25 to 30 years and to continue renovations to the sanitary sewer plant and collection system. 8. To Continue Quality Improvements in City Government by supporting efforts of City administration to drive implementation of Baldrige Quality management practices and principles within City operations, development of a balanced scorecard for performance measurement of services, continue development of a team approach to resolving problems through process improvements and delivery of services. 9. To Seek Out and Take Advantage of Opportunities that would serve to help move our community forward in a positive, progressive manner.

Army allows Iraq war objector to resign ‘for good of service’ tions as “resignation for the good of the service in lieu of general court martial.” Watada, 31, refused to deploy to Iraq with his Fort Lewis, Washington-based unit in 2006, arguing the war is illegal and that he would be a party to war crimes if he served in Iraq. The Honolulu-born soldier was charged with missing his unit’s deployment and with conduct unbecoming an officer for denouncing President Bush and the war — statements he made while explaining his actions. His court-martial ended in mistrial in February 2007. The Army wanted to try him in a second court-martial, but a federal judge ruled such a trial would violate the soldier’s constitutional protection against double jeopardy. The judge said a second court-martial on key charges, including missing troop movement, would violate his constitutional right to be free from double jeopardy. Watada’s attorney said the soldier had handed in his resignation before, but the Army refused to accept it.

BY AUDREY McAVOY Associated Press Writer

HONOLULU — The Army is allowing the first commissioned officer to be court-martialed for refusing to go to Iraq to resign from the service, his attorney said late Friday. First Lt. Ehren Watada will be granted a discharge Oct. 2, “under other than honorable conditions,” attorney Kenneth Kagan said. Watada told the Honolulu Star-Bulletin Lastname he was happy the matter has finally been closed. “The actual outcome is different from the outcome that I envisioned in the first place, but I am grateful of the outcome,” he said. Fort Lewis spokesman Joseph Piek wouldn’t confirm Watada’s type of discharge, citing privacy rules. But he said late Friday that Watada’s manner of resignation is described in Army regula-

“This time, however, it was accepted, apparently only when the Army realized it could not defeat Lt. Watada in a courtroom,” Kagan said. Watada’s father, Bob Watada, welcomed the news. “I’m happy, very happy for Ehren. I’m happy for our family,” he said. Watada has been lionized by anti-war activists for contending that the war is illegal. If convicted, he could have been sentenced to six years in prison and be dishonorably discharged. Kagan said he felt history would treat Watada “more favorably” than the U.S. Army.

Daily Meditation Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it: but the instruction of fools is folly. Proverbs 16:22

Our Opinion

Odes to Obama A video of New Jersey schoolchildren singing songs of praise about President Barack Obama has conservatives up in arms, and liberals telling them to just settle down. We do believe the songs were inappropriate for teaching at school, not because they deal with politics or speak positively about this (or any) president, but because some of the content seems to be Democratic Party boilerplate. The songs were written to mark a visit to B. Bernice Young School in Burlington Township by author Charisse Carney-Nunes, who wrote the children’s book “I am Barack Obama.” And penning a song about the subject of CarneyNunes’ book — our 44th president — wasn’t in itself a bad idea. But the song needed to stick to subject matter that is a little closer to nonpartisan: Respect for the office of the president; indisputable facts about Obama’s path to the White House; or even a nod to the notion that Obama’s election as the first non-white president might prompt children of all races to believe that they can reach similar heights. Sure, there still might have been conservatives who complained. But those complaints would ring hollow. Instead, the unnamed teacher taught the children to sing such lines as: He said we must be fair today. Equal work means equal pay. Mmm, mmm, mm! Barack Hussein Obama. And, in a song set to the tune of “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” these words: Hooray, Mr. President, we honor your great plans, To make this country’s economy No. 1 again. … So continue, Mr. President, we know you’ll do the trick. Those verses go a bit beyond just congratulating Obama on winning the presidency (which would be reasonable even though nearly half the country voted for John McCain) or encouraging students to know the president’s story and to respect his office. We’ll also admit that we take exception on another point: The songs have Christian influence, but those ties missing, replaced by praise for a mortal man. In the first song, students sang: He said red, yellow, black or white, All are equal in his sight. Mmm, mmm, mm! Barack Hussein Obama Well now, wait a minute. Isn’t the Obama song a little late to the party here? After all, we were taught 40 years ago — and others were taught, long before us — to sing of Jesus’ love for us: “Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight.” Of course, “Jesus Loves the Little Children” is a song you’d never hear taught to schoolkids these days. And if you did and a video of it aired on YouTube, the ACLU would have a lawsuit filed by nightfall. The second song was to the tune of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.” As most of us know, that song begins: “Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.” While the original is a tune you might still hear a school choir sing — perhaps “excused” because of its historic significance as a Civil War song — odds are that most schools would avoid it, fearing complaints about the separation of church and state. Some bloggers have suggested conservatives are being hypocritical in complaining about the Obama songs. They note that students from Hurricane Katrina-ravaged schools sang a song that praised George W. Bush (and government agencies, etc.) during a visit to the White House. The differences are apparent to all but the daft. For starters, that song was not effusive praise for one politician, but touched on all branches of government and society and the need to cooperate in the Katrina recovery. Second, it was sung at the White House, where surely it’s more permissible to take a more political and praiseworthy tone. Meanwhile, Obama wasn’t even present at the New Jersey school where songs praising him were taught and sung. It might seem like sour grapes to complain about the Obama songs, but the point is worth making. School is absolutely for teaching children not only facts about our politics and leaders, but to respect both. Such lessons and discussions might become very partisan (particularly among older students with more knowledge), provided students, as they should be, are encouraged to think and speak for themselves. Public school is not for teaching kids to memorize — and to sing or recite in unison — party- or ideology-specific messages.

This column was originally published April 20, 2003. Before I get to today’s topic (“Worms Making News”), I want to apologize to those readers, both human and elf, who were unhappy with my column on “The Lord of the Rings.” It turns out that my readership includes some VERY serious fans of the movie and the classic book by the late J.R. “Scooter” Tolkien. Many of these fans took time out from their busy schedules to write lengthy letters detailing the errors in my column, and observing that I am a stupid idiot. Here are some of the specific points they made (I am not making these points up): • “For your information, Dick Cheney is NOT in ‘The Lord of the Rings.’” • “It is not right to refer to Aragorn as ‘Lord Aragorn’ until he claims the throne of Gondor. He’s just a Ranger right now who happens to be really good in battle.” • “I don’t think that you fully understand that if they don’t destroy the ring, the world will fall into definite evil.” • “The Ents cannot do kung fu, as that did not exist in Middle Earth.” These are all strong points, and so I want to say to you Tolkien fans, by way of sincere

apology: Are you, by any chance, Hoosiers? No, seriously, I’m sorry if my column offended you, or in any way has caused the world to fall into definite evil. While I’m at it, I also want to apologize to the accordion community for a recent column in which I encouraged people to throw accordions into Dave ponds. That Barry statement earned me Tribune Media a stern Services rebuke from James P. O’Brien, Ph.D., a professor of music at the University of Arizona. Dr. O’Brien informed me that making fun of the accordion is “inappropriate,” and concluded his letter with this menacing statement: “Gary Larson did this years ago, and quality accordionists still boycott his ‘Far Side’ calendars as a result.” As a humorist, I am all too aware of the devastating effects of being targeted for a boycott by quality accordionists. I don’t want to wind up like poor Gary Larson, who today is penniless, dressed in rags, holding a

cardboard sign that says he will draw talking cows for food. So I hereby apologize to Dr. O’Brien, who, according to the Internet, has two CDs for sale: “Accordion Accord” and “Reason for Squeezin’.” This brings us to our popular attraction “Worms Making News,” which today features two exciting items: DATELINE, MINNESOTA — According to a story in the Duluth News Tribune and brought to my attention by alert reader Brian Rohland, a Duluth man has succeeded in doing something that, for most of humanity, remains only a dream: making wine from tent caterpillars. The man, Ray Reigstad, got the idea from the fact that Minnesota is regularly infested with tent caterpillars, which are also called “army worms,” because during certain times of year they wear tiny knapsacks. According to the story, Reigstad and his girlfriend collected a large quantity of these worms last June, “when they were big” (meaning the worms were big). Reigstad then poured boiling water on them “to kill them instantly” — no worm suffered needlessly in the making of this wine — then mashed them, then added sugar and yeast, then let it ferment until it was a “green liquid,” which he then flushed

down the toilet. No, wait, that’s what I would have done. Reigstad actually put it in wine bottles and gave it to people for Christmas. The story does not say how the recipients felt about this, but I wouldn’t be surprised if next Christmas, Reigstad gets at least one fruitcake containing numerous cockroach heads. Speaking of food: DATELINE, CAMBRIDGE — According to an Associated Press story sent in by alert reader Donald O’Brien, biologists at Harvard University have “manipulated hundreds of genes to create roundworms that are sleek and trim.” This is wonderful news for the literally millions of roundworms who suffer from obesity to the point where they do virtually nothing all day except sit around and vote for contestants on “American Idol.” But it’s also great news for overweight humans, also known, technically, as “Americans.” Because if scientists can deactivate the genes that cause roundworms to gain weight, it stands to reason that, in time, they will be able to deactivate the gene that causes human beings to play the accordion. No! Just kidding! Please don’t boycott me, quality accordionists! I am truly sorry! Here, have some wine.

Letters to the Editor Race doesn’t exist To the editor:

Back to school on immigrants RALEIGH — The North Carolina community college system seems bound and determined to admit illegal aliens. And once again, hotheads on both sides are doing their best to complicate a tough subject with irrelevant claims. Let’s walk our way through the immigration thicket one more time. First, virtually no one thinks it practical, and few would think it proper, to expend huge amounts of taxpayer resources to round up all the illegal aliens and deport them. If you hear someone on either side of the debate promising or warning against such a policy, ignore him. Second, not very many people think it would be practical or proper for Congress simply to legalize all the current illegal aliens. The public would never stand for it. And whatever immigration policy you think America should adopt, you can’t possibly believe that current illegal residents should be allowed to remain in the country even if they have: 1. felony convictions; 2. severe drug addictions or mental illnesses; 3. ties to criminal gangs or terrorist groups; 4. serious communicable diseases; or 5. no obvious means of support save government entitlements. Third, given the first two propositions, and the manifest need to rationalize the nation’s immigration policies for the 21st century, the only feasible federal policy right now is a targeted enforcement policy that reduces the number of illegal aliens over time, by focusing law enforcement efforts on those who violate other laws while refusing to treat illegal residents as if they were legal

residents. Only after the ranks of illegal aliens shrink, through gradual self-deportation, can immigration reformers in Congress rewrite the laws to allow more people to immigrate legally into the country to work and become Americans the right way. Now, combine these three propositions and the following realJohn ity becomes inescapable: Hood for the Special to foreseeable The Daily Dispatch future, there will remain significant numbers of people residing in North Carolina illegally. For state policymakers, the question becomes how to respond to this reality sensibly, affordably, and fairly. To start with, pretty much everyone agrees — and the courts already require — that North Carolina governments must provide emergency services to all residents, regardless of their immigration status, and that they cannot withhold services such as public education to minors who are in the state illegally through no fault of their own. The reasoning isn’t hard to fathom. Violating the nation’s immigration laws is a serious offense, but it hardly justifies being denied police protection after an assault or an ambulance ride to the hospital after a car crash. As for public education and other services to children, it would be wrong to punish them for their parents’ misdeeds. Once you get past these two

exceptions, however, it becomes very difficult to justify the extension of any other government services to illegal aliens. For one thing, while illegal residents do pay some taxes, their status prohibits them from shouldering the same tax burden that legal residents do. Extending services to them essentially compels taxpayers to subsidize lawbreakers. That’s wrong — and they’ll never stand for it. And don’t feed me any bunk about how illegal residents would have to pay out-ofstate tuition to attend colleges, thus fully covering their costs. Very few of them will enroll on such terms. The clear intention, already well telegraphed, is to charge out-of-state tuition for a while and then push for instate tuition status. Second, extending services such as higher education to adults residing illegally in the United States makes it less likely that they will do the right thing — comply with current law, move to their countries of origin, and then take their proper place in line. Third, extending such services to illegal residents is so outrageous to the majority of voters that it has the effect of postponing the date at which it will ever be possible to get comprehensive immigration reform through Congress. Selfstyled “immigration reformers” are doing themselves and their cause tremendous harm by continuing to insist on indefensible ideas such as admitting illegal aliens to state colleges. But the state is going to do it, anyway. Phooey. John Hood is president of the John Locke Foundation and publisher of

Racism. Even former President Carter and Bill Cosby are using the despicable word. Despicable? Why? It doesn’t exist. I have been a Bible student for over 40 years. I knew the history of man and the history of the Jewish people before I knew my own genealogy. Adam and Eve are grandparents of all mankind. Only one people. Do you doubt it? Nowhere in this book can we find “race” referring to any man. Further, recently our scientists completed a five-year worldwide genetics survey, The Genographic Project, examining DNA samples of people of every skin color, national origin, even people in the remotest areas of the globe. What did they find … and celebrate? The common denominator of our gene code points to a single man, they call “scientific” Adam and a single woman, they call “scientific” Eve. These multitudes of scientists even traced our genetic code back to where they lived, just west of the Indian Ocean in Africa. Then, they traced our parents’ migration path across Africa, Europe and Asia. Can we accept the facts from these two witnesses, the Bible and science? We are all brothers in creation. And if you are a Christian, we are brothers and sisters in Christ, the Church, eternally. Wondrous thought. This nation holds a proud moment in history at President Barack Obama’s election as president last year. He is our president. No congress or parliament on earth can pass a civil rights law that would accomplish that. He was elected as a result of our Christian roots. We are told, even commanded to, “Love one another.” And our people, united, lifted this man to the highest office in the world. Really, what I am saying, and we should all say, is, “Love your brother.” Therefore, the next time you hear “r--e,” or “r----m,” think about it. It doesn’t exist. And I wish Carter and Cosby would be quiet and stop clouding up the political air. It’s confusing enough already.

Gadhafi meets with Lockerbie family members By TOM McELROY Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK — A woman whose brother died in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, says she and another victim’s relative met in New York City with Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, whose country has been blamed for the attack. Colorado Springs, Colo., attorney Lisa Gibson said the meeting with Gadhafi at the Libyan Mission to the United Nations on Wednesday was arranged through a Libyan ambassador. “He generally said he

was sorry for the loss, but we didn’t go into any details about the bombing,” Gibson said of the 10-minute meeting with Gadhafi, who making his first visit to the U.S. to attend the U.N. General Assembly. Gibson’s brother was stationed in the Army in Berlin and was going home for Christmas when the plane blew up, killing 270 people. Last month, a Scottish magistrate ordered the release of convicted Lockerbie bomber Abdel Baset al-Megrahi after he was diagnosed with fatal prostate cancer. Though Libyan security forces cleared away most of the

Wrong-embryo baby had ‘guardian angel’ TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio woman who gave birth to a baby boy after a fertility clinic implanted her with the wrong embryo is a “guardian angel,” the boy’s biological parents said Saturday. Paul and Shannon Morell of suburban Detroit said in a statement that they would be “eternally grateful” to Carolyn Savage, of Sylvania, for her decision to give birth to their child despite the clinic’s mistake. “It’s been a long, difficult journey, and we’re thrilled that our family is now complete,” the Morells said. “We will be eternally grateful for his guardian angel, Carolyn Savage, and the support of the entire Savage family. The boy was born Thursday at 5 pounds and 3 ounces at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo. He measures 18 inches long. In a statement Friday, the Savages offered congratulations to the Morells. “At this time, we would like to offer our heartfelt congratulations to the Morell family on the birth of their son,” the Savages’ statement said. “We wish Paul, Shannon, their twin girls and their new baby boy the best, as they move forward with their lives together.” The Savages asked for privacy in the days ahead, saying “Our family is going through a very difficult time.” The Savages extended thanks to people around the world for their support and prayers. They thanked medical professionals for their care and treatment throughout the pregnancy and delivery. The Savages say a fertility clinic outside Ohio transferred the wrong frozen embryo in February. Ten days later, they got a call from a doctor at the clinic saying she was pregnant with someone else’s child.

Legend of Springsteen dissected WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. (AP) — About 300 professors from as far away as Australia have come to Bruce Springsteen’s native New Jersey to fill their brains with the Boss. The no-holds-barred intellectual romp “Glory Days: A Bruce Springsteen Symposium” began Thursday with a walking tour the rocker’s old stomping grounds, including his boyhood home in Freehold. The academic symposium organized by Virginia Tech and Penn StateAltoona continues through Sunday. It includes several pilgrimages to the Stone Pony bar in Asbury Park, where Springsteen launched his career. The scholarly exploration covers topics such as Springsteen and psychology, movies, culture, gender and the criminal justice system. Springsteen turned 60 on Wednesday.

thousands gathered at the airport, hundreds remained to greet al-Megrahi upon his arrival, infuriating the victims’ families. Gibson said she gave the Libyan leader a pen and a card, in which she told him she had been praying for him. “He was very friendly and cordial to us,” Gibson said. “Honestly, I think he was touched by us being there.” Gibson said she’s been to Libya three times, and through her humanitarian organization, Peace and Prosperity Alliance, she’s helped to raise money for Libyan children with AIDS and other humanitarian projects.

The Libyan leader has been trying to restore his country’s standing in the world and transform it from a pariah state to an accepted member of the international community. Gadhafi surprised the international community by agreeing to dismantle his country’s weapons of mass destruction programs. The United States restored ties with Libya in 2006, after Libya agreed to resolve the Lockerbie case in a deal that included paying compensation to the victims’ families. Gibson said the other person who attended the meeting had lost his father in the bombing.

Emonee Glover poses with Henderson Middle football coach Eric Watkins at practice Thursday. Glover, who plays middle linebacker for the Rams, is the first female football player at the middle school or high school level in Vance County.

Not just a guy’s game

I believe that I have most everything in order, Walt including Bowen maps of the Dispatch river, reFishing Columnist quired outof-state fishing licenses, and plenty of good food. The only thing I haven’t figured out yet is how I am going to get two trucks and

two boats back to North Carolina after I win the event. I guess that will get figured out when the time comes. While I am up there I plan to eat deer tenderloins, country ham, beef steaks, and at least one trip to a seafood restaurant for local crabs with my daughter Claire who lives on the shore of the Potomac.

Emonee Glover making an impact at linebacker for HMS By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor

She’s not too tall, and her frame isn’t too intimidating. But when Emonee Glover puts on shoulder pads and a helmet, watch out. The 12-year-old seventh grader is Vance County’s first female football player at the middle or high school level. As the starting middle linebacker for Henderson Middle School, she is a spotlight player for the Rams’ defense. In her first game as a Ram on Sept. 17, Glover led the defense with 11 tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery in a 44-20 win over Butner Stem. HMS coach Eric Watkins said he was not surprised with Glover’s performance in the first game. “Like I tell my kids, what we

do in practice is pretty much what we’re going to do in the game. If you come out here being lazy in practice, you can expect being lazy in the game,” he said. “Emonee came out here every day to work. Every day she’s on time, she gets out here and goes through the same conditioning. I don’t slack up on her or anything.” Watkins said Glover approached him in May and expressed interest in attending football camp. He said it wasn’t the first time a girl has asked about playing, but there was something different about this girl. Watkins said he wanted Glover’s parents, Delores Hargrove and Jzimon Glover, to call him to make sure they would give permission for their daughter to play. The coach said he was about

“50 percent” sure that Glover would go through with it all, and still had reservations even when she attended his camp. All of those doubts went away with one play. During a contact drill, one of the Rams players lined up opposite Glover. Watkins said she collided with him head-on. “He went one way and the ball went the other way,” he said. What does it feel like to make such a big hit? “I feel power,” said Glover. After that tackle, Glover demanded her teammates’ respect. “They don’t even look at her as a female any more. They look at her as part of the guys, one of the teammates,” Watkins said. “She showed a desire, the heart, and she’s a very nice young Please see GLOVER, page 2B

Wolfpack rallies to beat Pitt, 38-31 By JOEDY McCREARY AP Sports Writer

RALEIGH — Nobody could stop North Carolina State when it counted most. Not Pittsburgh’s defense, and not even the Wolfpack’s own mistakes. Toney Baker scored from 2 yards out with 6:28 left and N.C. State’s defense made a late stand to preserve a 38-31 victory over the Panthers on Saturday. In a wild game in which the teams combined for 830 total yards, Russell Wilson threw four touchdown passes for the third straight week and finished 21 of 35 for 322 yards for the Wolfpack (3-1). Wilson also rushed 10 times for 91 yards and led three straight secondhalf touchdown drives for N.C. State. “With the quarterback, the way he’s playing, we’ll keep slinging it around the yard and see what happens,” coach Tom O’Brien said. The last drive was kept alive by two pass-interference calls on third downs against Pitt. Baker raced

North Carolina State won 38-31. untouched through the left side two plays later to give N.C. State its first — and only — lead. “The penalties we had on defense were mindboggling,” Pitt coach Dave

Wannstedt said. Bill Stull was 12 of 23 for 206 yards with two touchdown passes while Dion Lewis had two early scoring runs for the Panthers (3-1).

They had one last chance to force overtime after a shotgun snap sailed over Wilson’s head and was recovered by Pitt’s Max Gruder at the N.C. State 8 with 2:45 remaining. But freshman safety Brandan Bishop knocked a sure touchdown catch out of Dorin Dickerson’s hands one play before Stull’s fourth-down pass sailed out of the end zone with 1:15 left. “We gave them some opportunities, but we took advantage of ours,” O’Brien said. Pitt’s best start since 2000 was spoiled by an N.C. State team that held Lewis, the Big East’s leading rusher, to just 16 yards in the second half. Lewis finished with 95 yards and scored on runs of 6 and 7 yards in the first half. “We didn’t tackle in the first half,” O’Brien said. “If we can tackle at all in the first half, it’s probably a different story.” For a while, it seemed the Panthers would claim Please see WOLFPACK, page 3B

Nesbitt leads ground game in win over Heels By CHARLES ODUM AP Sports Writer

ATLANTA — The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets didn’t like falling out of the Top 25 with their first loss, so they made a point with a lopsided victory against another ranked opponent. Josh Nesbitt ran for two touchdowns and Georgia Tech held the ball for 42 minutes, its highest total in 13 years, to beat No. 22 North Carolina 24-7 on Saturday. Georgia Tech was ranked No. 14 before its 33-17 loss at Miami last week. “I think a lot of people had written us off,” said Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson, who made sure his players heard the message. “Seeing it all week, we took the challenge to step forward as a defense and as a team,” said safety Morgan Burnett, who had two interceptions. “Everyone came in determined and it showed throughout the day.” Georgia Tech (3-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) opened in a 4-3 scheme instead of the 4-2-5 it ran last week. The third linebacker helped; the Yellow Jackets held North Carolina (3-1, 0-1) to 154 yards on only 44 plays. “Terrible,” North Carolina coach Butch Davis

GREENVILLE (AP) — Dwayne Harris scored two touchdowns, including a 3-yard catch midway through the fourth quarter, to help East Carolina defeat Central Florida 19-14 on Saturday. Harris was a threat all over the field for the Pirates (2-2, 1-0 Conference USA), who defeated the Knights for the fourth consecutive season. The wide receiver made 10 catches for 121 yards and rushed the ball three times on direct snaps for 27 yards and a touchdown. Brett Hodges, who threw one touchdown pass and four interceptions, was 21-for-34 for 266 yards for Central Florida (2-2, 0-2). The Knights went scoreless for more than 53 minutes after taking a 7-0 lead midway through the first quarter. Patrick Pinkney was 27for-40 for 293 yards and an interception for the Pirates, who amassed a season-high 408 yards of total offense. Both teams entered the game among the nation’s

But the Knights and Pirates punted just once each in the first half, moving the ball at will until they stopped themselves with turnovers. East Carolina running back Jonathan Williams

lost a fumble inside UCF’s 15-yard line that led to the game’s first touchdown, a 19-yard run by the Knights’ Brynn Harvey midway through the first quarter. UCF had plenty of other opportunities to score, but couldn’t convert until Hodges found Kamar Aiken in the end zone with 1:06 remaining to cut East Carolina’s lead to 19-14.

The Knights recovered the onside kick, but Van Eskridge intercepted Hodges’ first pass of the ensuing possession to seal the game for the Pirates. Trailing 10-7 late in the first half, UCF missed an opportunity when Hodges threw an interception on third-and-goal from the East Carolina 4. Flushed from the pocket by linebacker Nick Johnson, Hodges threw a short pass over the middle that was picked off by defensive tackle Jay Ross. UCF also had a field goal blocked in the second quarter, and kicker Nick Cattoi came up short on a 45-yard attempt early in the fourth. The Pirates also weren’t perfect in the red zone, coming up with a total of 12 points on five trips inside the UCF 20. But Harris’ 25-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter allowed them to bypass that troublesome territory and take a 10-7 halftime lead they never relinquished.

Duke wins first-ever meeting with NC Central By BRYAN STRICKLAND The Herald Sun

DURHAM — All of Durham, Duke and N.C. Central fans alike, had reasons to celebrate leading up to Saturday’s historic first football meeting between the neighbors and reasons to cheer during the game. Duke fans, however, were the ones with cause for celebration after the game. The Blue Devils ripped off three touchdowns in less than a quarter before NCCU enjoyed a couple of moments in the sun on a rainy night at Wallace Wade Stadium. Duke bounced back quickly and decisively, putting away the Eagles 49-14 before 26,390 soaked but spirited fans. “I thought it was a good thing for Durham; I just hate the weather wasn’t any better than it was,” Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. “It turned out as good as it was supposed to turn out, with all the kids enjoying playing and playing hard.” Duke quarterback Thad Lewis looked more like his old self after a shaky start to the season, hitting on 17 of 25 passes for 189 yards with two touchdown passes and a touchdown run. “I felt like myself — no swine flu, no ankle (problem),” Lewis said. “I was just able to go out there and play

Former Hillside running back Desmond Scott looked like a new weapon, rushing for 100 yards on 16 carries in his college debut. Scott and Patrick Kurunwune (93 yards) got nearly all the playing time in the backfield with starter Re’quan Boyette out and second-stringer Jay Hollingsworth rarely used, and both wasted little time setting the tone. They helped Duke (2-2), which had totaled 183 yards on the ground through three games, rush for 233 yards on Saturday. “Coach Cut always tells us to be ready,” Kurunwune

said. “Whatever string you are, you’ve got to be ready. Des stepped up. It was great for a true freshman to step up the way he did. “We’re just glad that we’re real deep at running back.” Kurunwune and Scott scored on nifty runs on Duke’s first two possessions, and then Lewis hooked up with Donovan Varner for an 18-yard score on Duke’s next drive — the first of two TD catches for Varner — for a 21-0 lead. The Eagles (0-4), facing a Football Bowl Subdivision opponent for the first time in school history, didn’t accept their fate easily. Duke’s lead quickly shriveled and stood

at just 21-14 heading to the final minute of the first half. NCCU totaled 14 yards on its first seven snaps but changed that in a hurry, when former Hillside quarterback Michael Johnson heaved one deep down the middle to former Hillside teammate Geovonie Irvine for 55 yards, putting the Eagles in position to score on a 1-yard run from Tim Shankle. Duke went right back to business, but when Lewis hurt his ankle on a run, Sean Renfree came in and promptly threw an interception that Jeffery Henderson picked off and sprinted 83 yards down the right sideline with to bring NCCU within 21-14. “I thought early on we were sluggish,” NCCU coach Mose Rison said. “Once we got our feet under us and started to understand what they were doing, we were able to make some things happen on offense. “I thought we had them off-balance for a while and got the game much closer.” Lewis, however, returned after sitting out one possession and quickly returned to form, orchestrating a 13-play, 80-yard march to end the half, capped by a 14-yard TD pass on which Varner did most of the work with some shifty moves to make it 28-14 at the break.

GLOVER, from page 1B lady. She’s got good character about herself, carries herself well around school. She got out here and she proved to the guys that she wanted to be a part of the team.” Glover said she played football in the backyard with her father, and played rec league football for the first time last year. “I really didn’t play football too much, and when I stepped on the field, it was like I just had talent for football,” she said. When she came to camp for HMS, the coaches played her at middle linebacker because that’s the position she played in the rec league. “She proved to me she wanted to be a starter, so we started her at middle linebacker,” said Watkins. The coach said he was surprised at how quickly she picked up the game. “She’s quick. She reads holes well when we send her on blitzes and stuff like that. Her technique is very great,” he said. “It comes easy to her. I thought it would come hard, but it’s come very easy to her.”

Glover said she feels no different playing with the boys. “I don’t know. I just feel like I’m playing football,” she said. Glover and the Rams have their annual rivalry game this Wednesday, when they play Eaton Johnson in the CougarRam Classic at Southern Vance High School. The linebacker said she’s ready for her introduction into the big game. “I’m looking forward to stopping every play they run and just getting the quarterback out of the game,” she said. Watkins said that, while there are some bragging rights involved, the Cougar-Ram Classic has a deeper meaning. “I told the kids this game means a lot as far as pulling both sides of the town together. It’s a community thing to me. When we grew up playing the game, that’s what it was all about,” he said. In the five years the two teams have played in the Classic, HMS was won every matchup. “We’ve always had the trophy and we’re going to

pretty much try to keep the trophy at Henderson Middle School,” said Watkins. The Rams had a 16game winning streak that spanned three seasons end on Wednesday with a 20-14 loss to Northern Granville. HMS began the 2007 season 0-2 before winning the rest of their games. They were undefeated at 8-0 last season, and began this season with two wins. “That 16-0 run, it was a blessing because the kids bought into what

NL Roundup

Braves win again, gain a game on Colorado Braves 11, Nationals 5 WASHINGTON (AP) — Tommy Hanson pitched seven innings for his 11th win, Yunel Escobar drove in three runs and the Braves earned their fifth consecutive victory. Atlanta pulled within 2.5 games of NL wild card-leading Colorado, which lost to St. Louis. The Braves (84-70) have won 13 of 15 and are 5030 since June 27, improving to a season-best 14 games over .500. Hanson (11-4) allowed four hits and four runs — three of them on Mike Morse’s pinch-hit homer. The impressive rookie, who made his major league debut on June 7, struck out seven and walked one. Garrett Mock (3-10), who lost his fifth consecutive decision, allowed six runs, four earned, and seven hits in five innings. Brian McCann hit a two-run homer in Atlanta’s five-run ninth. Cardinals 6, Rockies 3 DENVER (AP) — Matt Holliday celebrated another playoff clincher at Coors Field, only this time it was with the St. Louis Cardinals and not the Colorado Rockies. Jason LaRue, subbing at catcher for injured AllStar Yadier Molina, homered off Ubaldo Jimenez to break a seventh-inning tie and the Cardinals clinched the NL Central crown when they beat the Rockies 6-3 Saturday night behind right-hander Adam Wainwright’s 19th victory. Colorado’s lead in the NL wild-card race shrunk to 2 1/2 games over the Atlanta Braves, who beat Washington 11-5 Saturday.

Maybin ran for Cody Ross in the fourth inning after Ross was hit on the left hand by a pitch from John Maine (6-6). He hit his third homer an inning later to give Florida a 7-3 cushion. Maine allowed seven runs and seven hits in 4 2-3 innings. He struck out three, walked two, threw two wild pitches and hit consecutive batters in the fourth.

Atlanta Braves’ Yunel Escobar follows through with a two-run single to right field against the Washington Nationals during the first inning of Saturday’s game. The Braves won 11-5.

D-Backs 8, Padres 5 PHOENIX (AP) — Seldom-used Chad Tracy snapped an 0-for-18 slump with a pinch-hit grand slam in the seventh inning, sending Daniel Schlereth to his first major league win in the Arizona Diamondbacks’ 8-5 victory over the San Diego Padres on Saturday night. Tracy hit an 0-2 pitch from Luke Gregerson an estimated 432 feet into the swimming pool area in right-center field to conclude the scoring. It was his third career slam. Dodgers 8, Pirates 4 PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Dodgers locked up their fourth playoff appearance in six years, getting a two-run single from pinch-hitter Jim Thome during a four-run eighth inning in which Pirates relievers walked four before going on to beat Pittsburgh 8-4 on Saturday night. Manager Joe Torre is headed to the postseason for a record-tying 14th straight time — only the

Braves’ Bobby Cox has accomplished the feat — after the Dodgers assured themselves of at least a wild-card spot. They also cut their magic number to three for winning the NL West for the second consecutive season.

Brewers 7, Phillies 5 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer off reliever Tyler Walker in the ninth, giving the Milwaukee Brewers a 7-5 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday. It was Braun’s 30th home run of the season and second career gameending homer. The loss went to Walker (2-1), one of the pitchers the Phillies were considering as a replacement for struggling closer Brad Lidge. Marlns 9, Mets 6 MIAMI (AP) — Injury replacement Cameron Maybin hit a three-run homer in Florida’s sevenrun fifth and the Marlins rallied to beat the New York Mets 9-6 on Saturday night.

Reds 10, Astros 4 HOUSTON (AP) — Jay Bruce and Laynce Nix homered and drove in three runs apiece, helping the Cincinnati Reds beat the Houston Astros 10-4 on Saturday night for their sixth consecutive win. Juan Francisco and Corky Miller each had two RBIs for the Reds, who have won 10 of 12 and 23 of 33 overall. They beat the Astros for the ninth straight time. Cubs 6, Giants 2 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Aramis Ramirez homered, Jake Fox hit a two-run single and the Chicago Cubs beat the San Francisco Giants 6-2 on Saturday for their sixth win in seven games. Chicago’s victory again kept the Cardinals from clinching the NL Central. St. Louis had a magic number of one and could capture the division with a victory Saturday night at Colorado. Tom Gorzelanny (7-2) won consecutive starts for the first time all season and his third straight decision, following Carlos Zambrano’s two-hit gem a night earlier with five solid innings of his own. The left-hander returned to the rotation Sept. 21 after a 3 1/2-week stint in the bullpen.

AL Roundup

Sabathia gets 19 win, leads Yankees past Red Sox Yankees 3, Red Sox 0 NEW YORK (AP) — CC Sabathia combined on a two-hitter to become the major leagues’ first 19game winner, Robinson Cano hit a tiebreaking, opposite-field homer off the top of the left-field fence and the New York Yankees closed in on the AL East title with a 3-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday. Sabathia (19-7) allowed just one hit in seven innings to outduel Daisuke Matsuzaka (3-6) as New York cut to one the magic number for its first division title since 2006. Already assured of no worse than the wild card, the Yankees have won eight of nine against their rival after starting the season 0-8 against Boston. They can wrap up the AL East on Sunday when they play the Red Sox for the final time this season. Cano homered in the sixth inning, and Johnny Damon added a two-out, two-run single in the eighth off former Mets closer Billy Wagner, who entered to boos in his first game in New York since Boston acquired him last

month. The runs were unearned because shortstop Chris Woodward dropped the ball for an error during a rundown after pinchrunner Brett Gardner got caught off third on a ball in the dirt.

Blue Jays 5, Mariners 4 (10) TORONTO (AP) — Adam Lind homered twice, including a game-ending solo drive in the 10th inning, to power the Blue Jays to a victory over the Mariners that included Seattle star Ichiro Suzuki’s first career ejection. Jose Bautista also went deep for the Blue Jays, who have homered in seven straight games and have 33 longballs in September, tops in the majors. Suzuki was thrown out by plate umpire Brian Runge for arguing a called third strike in the fifth, the first ejection of the season for the Mariners and the first of the All-Star outfielder’s career, including his years in Japan. Suzuki used his bat to draw a line on the outer edge of the plate, indicating he thought David Purcey’s strike three pitch was outside. That led to

Rangers 15, Rays 3 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Marlon Byrd homered twice, including his sixth career grand slam in an 11-run fifth inning, and the Texas Rangers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 15-3 on Saturday night. Texas moved within six games of Boston for the AL wild card with eight to play. The Red Sox lost 3-0 to the New York Yankees earlier in the day.

Indians 9, Orioles 8 CLEVELAND (AP) — Jhonny Peralta hit a game-ending RBI single Saturday night to give the Cleveland Indians a wild 9-8 win over Baltimore, extending the Orioles’ losing streak to nine games. Luis Valbuena started the ninth with a single against Jim Johnson (46), Baltimore’s seventh pitcher, and moved up on Shin-Soo Choo’s groundout. Peralta then lined a 3-1 pitch to center to win it.

Twins 11, Royals 6 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Denard Span had four hits and a careerhigh six RBIs, leading the Minnesota Twins to an 11-6 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday night for their 11th victory in 12 games. The Twins remained two games behind firstplace Detroit, which beat the Chicago White Sox 12-5, in the AL Central. Minnesota was in third place and 5 1/2 games behind the Tigers after a Sept. 12 loss. The teams open a four-game series Monday at Detroit.

Tigers 12, White Sox 5 CHICAGO (AP) — Miguel Cabrera got four hits and drove in four runs, giving him at least 100 RBIs for the sixth consecutive season, and the Detroit Tigers rallied from a five-run deficit to beat the Chicago White Sox 12-5 on Saturday night. Curtis Granderson, Placido Polanco and Gerald Laird each had three of Detroit’s 20 hits, including singles in the decisive seventh inning, to help the Tigers win for the fifth time in six games.

interception ended North Carolina’s final drive with 1:34 remaining. Georgia Tech did not commit a turnover. It was a reversal from last year, when North Carolina won 28-7 in Chapel Hill as the Yellow Jackets were hurt by two lost fumbles, an interception, two missed field goals and two failed fourth-down conversions. “I was very surprised in

Tech’s execution, compared to last year,” Yates said. “They shut us down in every aspect of our offense.” Nesbitt was 7-for-17 for 89 yards. Roddy Jones had a 13-yard touchdown run to cap Georgia Tech’s opening drive. Georgia Tech extended its lead after a Tar Heels turnover. Yates lined up in the shotgun but wasn’t

the ejection.

PACK, from page 1B their eighth road victory in nine tries dating to their upset of then-No. 2 West Virginia in 2007 — especially after Stull hit Jonathan Baldwin with a 79-yard touchdown pass to make it 31-17 late in the third. That’s when Wilson took over. He started the comeback with a 33-yard touchdown pass to Jarvis Williams, then tied it at 31-all with a pretty 7-yard flip to George Bryan before leading the go-ahead drive. Earlier, he had scoring passes of 23 yards to Taylor Gentry and 38 yards to Baker, extended his NCAA-record streak of pass attempts without an interception to 364 and proved that the Wolfpack’s offense can pile up the points against college football’s big boys, too. “I’ll do whatever it takes, whether it’s running the ball or throwing it,” Wilson said. N.C. State came in with the highest-scoring

offense in the Atlantic Coast Conference, but that average of nearly 38 points seemed misleading because all but three of its 113 total points came in consecutive routs of Football Championship Subdivision teams Murray State and GardnerWebb. South Carolina, the only FBS team the Wolfpack played before Pitt, kept them out of the end zone in the opener. Instead, N.C. State — which outgained the Panthers 530-300 and ran 81 plays to 46 for Pitt — became the second team this season to rack up 500 total yards against Pitt. Both of those leaky performances have come on the road for a defense that was considered one of the team’s strengths and a reason Pitt was the preseason pick to win the Big East. “The offense played great today,” Wannstedt said, “but the defense didn’t.”

FISHING, from page 1B make the ultimate sacrifice in support of our gluttonous appetites, as shell shrapnel and crab juice flies. Hopefully there will be some time for fishing with all the eating I have planned. Last weekend turned into a working event. Susan and I, along with a little help from my dad, spent Saturday washing the vinyl siding on the house at the lake. There is nothing like the satisfaction you get from looking over a completed job like that. Sunday’s trip to fish for stripers didn’t work out because of a number of things, and I ended up heading back to Kernersville early to start preparing for my trip north. My cousin Jim sent a report from the coast, where the winds continue to be out of the eastnortheast and the fish just don’t want to bite. He took Jon Currin out last Saturday for a half day of fishing. They put three king mackerel in the boat and hooked up with three sharks as well. The largest king was close to 25 pounds and they would love to have him in the upcoming US Open tournament. Jim

reports that the trout and flounder are starting to bite well in shore and at the closer reefs near shore. If the temperatures will stay cool, the fish will continue to move closer to shore and things should be setting up for a heated fall bite. October and November should see the kings just past the breakers on shore and they should be hungry. Jeff Watson, Bryan Montgomery and Randy Owen reported catching seven nice stripers near Ivy Hill on Kerr Lake last Friday evening on top water lures. Next week’s article – Depending on the weather and several other factors, bass and striper fishing on Kerr Lake. Tip of the week – If you haven’t started using shaky head worms give them a try. When the bites are coming few and far between this often gets a few fish in the boat. Quarter-ounce shaky heads with a green pumpkin trick worm are usually effective most anywhere you go.

UNC LOSS, from page 1B 7 yards against Miami. Nesbitt added a careerhigh 32 carries for 97 yards. Georgia Tech had 317 yards rushing in its spread-option offense while holding North Carolina to 17. North Carolina’s only touchdown came on Yates’ 40-yard pass to Erik Highsmith early in the fourth quarter. Georgia Tech then put the game away with a 17-

play, 76-yard touchdown drive, capped by Nesbitt’s 10-yard run. The drive lasted 8:15. “It was huge,” Johnson said. “We played really good on defense and they hit us with a really big play and we responded. We came back and converted some third downs and basically put the game out of reach with the clock.” Burnett’s second

Georgia Tech defensive end Derrick Morgan recovered the fumble at the North Carolina 32, setting up Scott Blair’s 34-yard field goal for a 10-0 halftime lead.

Fans were cautioned of lightning in the area at the start of the fourth quarter and told they could re-enter the stadium if they chose to leave. Most fans remained until the rain became heavy in the final minutes.

Tebow injured in Florida win; Hokies roll over Canes No. 1 Florida 41, Kentucky 7 LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — In one scary moment for Tim Tebow, another Florida laugher turned into the Gators’ worst fear. Tebow was knocked out of Florida’s 41-7 victory against Kentucky after taking a hard shot to the head in the third quarter. The Gators were leading 31-7 and driving deep in Kentucky territory when Tebow was sacked by Kentucky defensive end Taylor Wyndham. As he fell back with Wyndham on top of him, Tebow’s head struck teammate Marcus Gilbert’s leg, violently bending his neck forward. Tebow lay motionless for several minutes while Commonwealth Stadium fell silent. He sat up with some help then slowly made his way off the field to a loud ovation. He was eventually carted off the field with concussion-like symptoms, vomiting several times as he was taken to an ambulance to a local hospital for tests. “I don’t know, I think it’s a concussion,” Florida coach Urban Meyer said. “I think he’ll be all right.” No. 2 Texas 64, UTEP 7 AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Colt McCoy and No. 2 Texas got the fast start they had been missing in recent weeks, rolling to a 40-point lead by halftime. McCoy passed for 286 yards and three touchdowns, two to Dan Buckner. The Longhorns (4-0) also harassed UTEP quarterback Trevor Vittatoe into five turnovers. Freshman D.J. Monroe’s first-quarter 91-yard kickoff return made him the first player in Texas history to return two kickoffs for touchdowns in a career. No. 3 Alabama 35, Arkansas 7 TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Greg McElroy passed for a career-high 291 yards and three touchdowns and Alabama opened Southeastern Conference play with an easy victory. The Crimson Tide (4-0, 1-0) picked on the Razorbacks’ beleaguered defense with three huge plays and blocked a punt to win its 18th consecutive league opener dating to its 1992 national championship. Iowa 21, No . 5 Penn State 10 STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Adrian Clayborn returned a block punt for a touchdown and Iowa left soggy Happy Valley with an 21-10 win over No. 5 Penn State, the Hawkeyes second straight upset of the Nittany Lions. A year after Iowa’s stunning 24-23 win knocked the Nittany Lions out of the national title race, the Hawkeyes (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten) beat Penn State (3-1, 0-1) again in drenching rainstorm. After falling behind 10-0 early, Iowa’s defense shut down quarterback Daryll Clark and the Penn State offense. Broderick Binns’ sack led to a safety in the second quarter. A defensive end, Clayborn rumbled 51 yards after blocking the punt to give Iowa an 11-10 lead with 12:21 left. Oregon 42, No. 6 California 3 EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Jeremiah Masoli answered his doubters by throwing for 253 yards and three touchdowns for Oregon. Masoli went into the game without a scoring pass this season, prompting many Ducks fans to call for his benching. But he responded by completing 21 of 25 passes for the Ducks (3-1, 1-0 Pac-10), who had 524 yards in total offense to Cal’s 206 yards.

California running back Jahvid Best is tackled by Oregon defenders Josh Kaddu (56) and Lavasier Tuinei during the second half of their game in Eugene, Ore., Saturday. The Oregon defense held Best to only 55 yards rushing to beat No. 6 California 42-3. Jahvid Best ran for 55 yards for the Golden Bears (3-1, 0-1). Widely considered a top Heisman contender, Best went into the game ranked third in the nation with an average of 137.33 yards on the ground per game.

No. 7 LSU 30, Mississippi State 26 STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — No. 7 LSU stuffed Mississippi State at the goal line in the final two minutes to preserve its 10th straight victory against the Bulldogs. Brandon LaFell had 101 yards and two touchdown catches and Chad Jones scored on a 93-yard punt return for the Tigers (4-0, 2-0 SEC). Anthony Dixon couldn’t score on two attempts from inside the 3 for Mississippi State (2-2, 1-2) on its final drive. Jones broke up a pass on third down and LSU stuffed quarterback Tyson Lee on fourth and inches. No. 8 Boise State 49, Bowling Green 14 BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) — Kellen Moore was nearly flawless, throwing for 247 yards and two touchdowns. Boise State’s big play offense needed four plays or less on its first six scoring drives. The Broncos (4-0) didn’t score until a minute into the second quarter when receiver Titus Young took a pitch from Moore and ran 18 yards for a touchdown. Moore threw for 195 yards in the second quarter alone, completing eight straight passes at one point. He finished 17 of 21, spreading the ball around to six different receivers. Tyler Shoemaker had 105 yards on four catches. No. 11 Virginia Tech 31, No. 9 Miami 7 BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Virginia Tech harassed Jacory Harris and dominated Miami in a downpour on Saturday. Miami, ranked in the top 10 for the first since 2005, had a chance to take a commanding lead in the ACC’s Coastal Division. Instead, Virginia Tech (3-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), Miami’s third consecutive ranked opponent, cooled of the Hurricanes. Miami (2-1, 2-1) had given Harris all kinds of time in beating Florida State and Georgia Tech to start 2-0. The Hurricanes had a lot more trouble keeping the Hokies’ pass rush off their star. Ryan Williams’ 2-yard run 5:14 into the game capped an 11-yard drive for Virginia Tech. Williams ran for 150 yards, and quarterback Tyrod Taylor finished with 75. No. 14 Cincinnati 28, Fresno State 20 CINCINNATI (AP) — Tony Pike threw three touchdown passes in a quick-strike offense that was hardly on the field, and the Bearcats held on against a Fresno State team that ran all over them for most of the game.

One big gamble made the Bulldogs (1-3) come up empty. Facing fourth-and-2 at the Cincinnati 6-yard line to open the fourth quarter, Fresno State chose to throw. Ryan Colburn’s pass was picked off, and Pike put the Bearcats (4-0) in control with a 23-yard touchdown pass to Mardy Gilyard.

No. 13 Ohio State 30, Illinois 0 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Dan Herron slogged through a downpour for two touchdowns and Ohio State collected a second straight shutout for the first time in 13 years. The Buckeyes (3-1, 1-0 Big Ten) and Terrelle Pryor had 0 passing yards in the first half and finished with just 82. He did throw a touchdown with 1:18 left. But Brandon Saine rushed for 81 yards on 13 carries and Herron had 75 on 14 attempts — scoring on runs of 4 and 2 yards — and the defense did the rest. No. 15 TCU 14, Clemson 10 CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — No. 15 TCU showed off its stellar defense and bolstered its BCS buster credentials. Andy Dalton threw two touchdown passes and the Horned Frogs (3-0) held Clemson to 125 yards in the second half to take control. TCU trailed 10-7 entering the fourth quarter as it had its own problems against a Tiger defense which held Boston College to 54 yards a week earlier. No. 16 Oklahoma State 56, Grambling State 6 STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Keith Toston ran for 84 yards and three first-half touchdowns, and Oklahoma State overpowered without its star running back and wide receiver. All-America receiver Dez Bryant and all-Big 12 tailback Kendall Hunter watched from the sidelines as the Cowboys (3-1) piled up 587 yards of total offense, including 321 on the ground, against their only Football Championship Subdivision opponent this season. It was the most lopsided win for Oklahoma State since a 59-7 victory over SMU in 2004, the year before Mike Gundy took over as coach. South Florida 17, No. 18 Florida State 7 TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Redshirt freshman B.J. Daniels ran for 126 yards and threw two touchdown passes in his first start in the first meeting between the schools. Daniels was filling in for senior Matt Grothe, out for the season with a knee injury. A Tallahassee kid not heavily recruited by the Seminoles, the 6-1, 210-pound Daniels totaled 341 yards of offense. It was the first time since Nebraska’s Steve Taylor ran for 139 yards against the Seminoles in 1986 that an opposing quarterback rushed for over 100 yards against

No. 19 BYU 42, Colorado State 23 PROVO, Utah (AP) — Harvey Unga ran for 113 yards and three touchdowns and No. 19 BYU converted two interceptions and a blocked punt into scores. Max Hall passed for two touchdowns and ran for another as the Cougars (3-1) won the Mountain West Conference opener one week after getting blown out at home by Florida State. Hall was 18-for-29 for 241 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. No. 20 Kansas 35, Southern Mississippi 28 LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Todd Reesing threw for 331 yards and three touchdowns, and Kansas shook off the effects of a midweek fight with the basketball team. Kansas (4-0) had no trouble moving the ball as usual in rolling up 433 total yards. The Jayhawks weren’t so good on defense, allowing Southern Miss quarterback Austin Davis to throw for 331 yards and three touchdowns. Southern Miss (3-1) knocked off one BCS school last week, upsetting Virginia 37-34 at home to extend the nation’s second-longest winning streak to eight games. The Golden Eagles marched through Kansas’ defense (395 total yards), but couldn’t stop Reesing when they needed to. No. 21 Georgia 20, Arizona State 17 ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Blair Walsh kicked a 37-yard field goal on the final play and No. 21 Georgia escaped an upset, beating Arizona State 20-17 Saturday on another big night for A.J. Green. Green caught eight passes for 153 yards, including a 56-yard touchdown. He also appeared to get his hand on Bobby Wenzig’s 38-yard field goal attempt that could have put the Sun Devils ahead with 4:21 remaining. Green, who had a careerbest 159 yards receiving against Arizona State a year ago, came up with a 36-yard grab for his final reception of the night, which set up Walsh’s winning field goal. No. 23 Michigan 36, Indiana 33 ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Tate Forcier’s 26-yard pass to Martavious Odoms with 2:29 left lifted Michigan to another comeback victory. Donovan Warren’s interception on Indiana’s next snap sealed the tougherthan-expected victory for the Wolverines (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten), who were outgained by the Hoosiers (3-1, 0-1) despite being favored to win by about three touchdowns. Forcier, whose TD pass in the closing seconds two weeks ago beat then-No. 18 Notre Dame, missed some plays on the game-winning drive after taking a hit and tapping his helmet as he looked to the sideline. No. 25 Nebraska 55, La-Lafayette 0 LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Zac Lee passed for 238 yards and a touchdown, Roy Helu Jr. scored twice and Nebraska celebrated its 300th consecutive sellout. The Cornhuskers (3-1), coming off a devastating 16-15 loss at Virginia Tech last week, beat up on an opponent from the Sun Belt Conference for the third time this season. Nebraska outscored Florida Atlantic, Arkansas State and Lafayette by a combined 142-12.

Wake falls to BC in OT By HOWARD ULMAN AP Sports Writer

BOSTON — Just when Wake Forest seemed to be headed for a stunning comeback win, Boston College pulled off its own shocker. Wes Davis recovered a fumble in overtime to foil the Demon Deacons’ drive for a winning touchdown as the Eagles held on for a 27-24 win behind Dave Shinskie’s three scoring passes on Saturday. “We were on the ropes,” BC coach Frank Spaziani said. The Demon Deacons had rallied behind Riley Skinner’s two touchdown passes in the last 3:44 of regulation before the Eagles (3-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) went ahead on a 23-yard field goal by Steve Aponavicius on the first series of overtime. Wake Forest (2-2, 0-1) then got its chance to start at the 25-yard line and moved to a first down at the 4 on four running plays. “Especially after the way the offense was going and the way we came back, I pretty much felt it was going to go our way,” Wake Forest defensive tackle John Russell said. The Demon Deacons then called a handoff to Brandon Pendergrass, who already had scored on a 76yard run. But he ran to the wrong spot and Skinner kept the ball, running to his left without blockers. “I kind of froze when I saw this happening,” Skinner said. “It was just a sloppy play all the way around.” Isaac Johnson forced the fumble and Davis recovered, ending the game and sending BC’s players rushing onto the field. “The play at the end was just a case of 11 people running at the ball. We preach that here,” Davis said. “We had pretty good control of that game. It would have been a terrible game to lose” The Eagles led 24-10 before Skinner marched his team to a tie. He threw a 12-yard scoring pass to Chris Givens with 3:44 left in the fourth quarter and a 16-yarder to Marshall Williams with 11 seconds remaining. On that last possession, Skinner completed 7 of his last 8 passes, spiking the ball to stop the clock for his only incompletion. In overtime, BC couldn’t advance after getting a first

down at the 6 and settled for the field goal. Pendergrass then ran three times for 20 yards and Skinner picked up 1 against a defense that seemed vulnerable. Then Skinner fumbled and Pendergrass lay face down on the ground for about a minute before being consoled by teammates. “We were very undisciplined, had a lot of penalties,” Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe said. “The last play of the day was disappointing but very indicative of the way we played.” Shinskie, a 25-year-old former minor-league pitcher and college freshman, completed 18 of 29 passes for 228 yards and one interception in his first start. Skinner went 25-for-35 for 354 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. “I definitely felt like I grew,” Shinskie said. “It was a lot of firsts for me, first start, first overtime.” One week after the Eagles gained just 54 yards in a 25-7 loss at Clemson, they picked up 59 on their first nine plays. That drive ended with a 32-yard field goal by Aponavicius, and BC never trailed. Jordon McMichael made a one-handed catch and scored on a 50-yard pass play for a 10-0 lead. The Demon Deacons tied it on Pendergrass’ 76-yard run and Jimmy Newman’s 23yard field goal. Shinskie’s 4-yard touchdown pass to Chris Pantale made it 17-10 just 30 seconds before halftime and his 17-yarder to Colin Larmond Jr. with 9:32 left in regulation built the lead to 24-10. Shinskie spent seven seasons in the minors, the first six in the Minnesota Twins organization. He pitched in 2008 for New Hampshire in the Toronto organization but never rose above Double-A in those seven years. Justin Tuggle, a 19-year-old freshman, started the first three games, although Shinskie saw considerable playing time. The ACC win was the first for Spaziani, who took over for the fired Jeff Jagodzinski after 12 years as a BC assistant, the last 10 as defensive coordinator. His players followed what he stressed to them. “You work hard, you work hard, you work hard and you just never give up,” Spaziani said. “You play every play and today was a perfect example.”

Rutgers beats errorprone Maryland 34-13 By DAVID GINSBURG AP Sports Editor

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — George Johnson recovered a Maryland fumble in the end zone to give Rutgers the lead, and the Scarlet Knights also scored on an interception return Saturday in a 34-13 victory over the bumbling Terrapins. It was the third straight win for Rutgers (3-1), which took advantage of five Maryland

turnovers, including three interceptions and a fumble by senior quarterback Chris Turner. The Scarlet Knights outscored the Terrapins 24-0 in the second half. Touchdown runs by Joe Martinek of 29 and 61 yards in the final five minutes turned a close game into a blowout. The Terrapins have committed 13 turnovers in four games and are 1-3 for the first time since 1997.

Martin defies age to lead Cup standings By DAN GELSTON AP Sports Writer

DOVER, Del. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The oldest driver in Sprint Cup happens to be the best one in the sport this season. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s won more races than Tony Stewart. Has more poles than Jimmie Johnson. He has earned more respect than any other driver in the garage and is the sentimental favorite to win his first Cup title. At 50 years old, Mark Martin defies his age on the track. Martin may be the elder statesmen, but that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stopped the gray-haired veteran from chasing the championship. He leads the points standings heading into Week 2 of the Chase for the championship at Dover International Speedway, the concrete track where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s won four times. Keep up this pace, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll finally have that elusive first championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m having the time of my life,â&#x20AC;? Martin said. When the green flag drops on Sunday, Martin will officially make his 750th Cup start, making him only the ninth driver in history to reach that mark. He was 40 wins, 253 top-five finishes and 411 top-10s in the first 749 starts. The one number that seems the most astounding of them all is his age: 50. At a time in life when most athletes have long settled into cozy retirement, Martin is among the rare breed that not only actively participates, but thrives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why is he still doing so good at that age? I think it has less to do with his age and more to do with the fact that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really hungry,â&#x20AC;? first-time Chase driver Brian Vickers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If he had won four championships, would he still be able to do it at 50? I think desire has more to do with it than age.â&#x20AC;? Martin is as physically fit and dedicated to healthy eating and clean

Driver Mark Martin climbs into his car before practice for the Sprint Cup series AAA 400 Saturday at Dover International Speedway. living as any other driver in the garage. Two pieces of pizza are about as unappetizing to him as a pair of DNFs in the 10-race Chase. His lifestyle has played as much a critical part of extending a Cup career that dates to 1981 as his ride at powerhouse Hendrick Motorsports. He almost retired in 2005 and dubbed the season the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Salute To Youâ&#x20AC;? tour as a season-long thank you to his fans. Four years later, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still here. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have done it if I could have seen the future, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for sure,â&#x20AC;? Martin said. His next attempt at retirement will likely come with less fanfare. It also wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come any time soon. Martin signed an extension last week to stay with Hendrick and in the No. 5 car through the 2011 season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little long range for my liking,â&#x20AC;? Martin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For planning purposes, sponsorship deals and all those things, it

made sense to go ahead and make the commitment so they could plan longer term than just a year.â&#x20AC;? Four-time series champion Jeff Gordon knows Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s break, when he ran a partial schedule in 2007 and 2008, helped re-energize him. Gordon wonders if another season or two of the season grind will eventually affect Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see how and what all takes place two or three years from now when he has been back in the grind a little while,â&#x20AC;? Gordon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I know he is having a lot of fun this year and obviously that team is doing a great job.â&#x20AC;? Martin, who qualified 14th for Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race, holds a 35-point lead over three-time defending Cup champion Johnson and Denny Hamlin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I admire him for what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accomplished throughout his entire career, especially what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done this season,â&#x20AC;? Vickers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge threat to win the championship. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

think his age hurts him whatsoever.â&#x20AC;? Martin has two top-10s in his last two races at Dover. Johnson won the race here in May and starts from the pole as he tries for the season sweep of the Monster Mile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody in the Chase right now are performing on a level that they could pull it off depending on how things work out for them,â&#x20AC;? Martin said. With nine races left to decide the champion, Martin has a favorable stretch of tracks ahead. He has four wins at Charlotte, two each at Martinsville, Talladega and Phoenix, and one win apiece at Kansas, California and Texas. Homestead-Miami Speedway, the last race of the season, is the only Chase track where he has failed to win a Cup race. Martin leads the series with five wins, including last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chase opener at New Hampshire. The victory was the 40th of his career and made him one of three active drivers to reach that milestone, along with Hendrick teammates Johnson and Gordon. Johnson and Gordon lead a talented Chase field with a combined seven championships. Stewart has two and Kurt Busch won in 2004. While Martin appears to have the stars aligned for him to grab that title, former Roush teammate Greg Biffle cautioned that the other Chase drivers are just as able and hungry to win it all as NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top senior. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to win a championship just as bad as everybody else,â&#x20AC;? Biffle said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mark probably feels an urgency to win the title because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50 years old. I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50, at least thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I keep hearing.â&#x20AC;? The only number that really matters this year to Martin is that â&#x20AC;&#x153;1â&#x20AC;? he can put in his career bio under championships.

Driver Clint Bowyer celebrates in victory lane after winning the Nationwide series Dover 200 Saturday at Dover International Speedway.

Bowyer takes first in Nationwide race at Dover By DAN GELSTON AP Sports Writer

DOVER, Del. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Clint Bowyer raced to his second Nationwide Series victory of the season on Saturday, taking the lead with 83 laps to go on the concrete at Dover International Speedway. His celebration was ignored as all attention turned to a brief, but heated, confrontation on pit road between Denny Hamlin and Brad Keselowski. They made contact late in the race, sending Hamlin to the garage. Keselowski finished third and was greeted when he got out of his car by an angry Hamlin. They exchanged words, and Hamlin shoved Keselowski. Keselowskiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public relations rep shoved Hamlin. The crews for both drivers got between the drivers. Keselowski crew chief Tony Eury Jr. ended it after a brief chat with Hamlin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to talk to him,â&#x20AC;? Hamlin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He

obviously needs some sort of guidance on what he needs to do to make it.â&#x20AC;? Keselowski blamed Hamlin for the accident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He cuts me off like he always does,â&#x20AC;? Keselowski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Denny Hamlin.â&#x20AC;? Mike Bliss was second. Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards rounded out the top five. Busch kept his overall lead in the points standings. He also became the second driver in the second-tier series to ever lead 2,000 laps in a season. Bowyer was driving in only his ninth Nationwide race of the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dover is one of my best racetracks so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably fitting I was able to get in this car and race this race,â&#x20AC;? he said. Busch dominated the first 100 laps despite communication issues with his crew. He could hear instruction over the radio, but no one could hear what Busch was saying.

Kenny Perry races past Woods in Tour Championship By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

ATLANTA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kenny Perry already has had a week to remember at the Tour Championship. He was honored with the Payne Stewart Award, which he called the greatest accomplishment of his career. He was so overcome by the stifling heat in the opening round at East Lake that he thought he might throw up after five holes and was lucky to shoot a 72. How about this to top it off? A two-shot lead going into Sunday, a final pairing with Tiger Woods, his entire family in town, and a chance to capture the Tour Championship, and maybe even the $10 million bonus for winning the FedEx Cup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might be magical,â&#x20AC;? Perry said Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see.â&#x20AC;? His round Saturday was magical enough. Perry birdied the opening four holes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all on putts inside 8 feet â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to quickly catch up to Woods, then kept bogeys off his card on the back nine for a 6-under 64. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Four birdies in a row puts you in a good mood is all I can say,â&#x20AC;? said Perry, who was at 8-under 202. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That set the tone for the day.â&#x20AC;? Woods had a 12-foot birdie putt on the first hole that slid by the cup, and that set the tone for his day. He missed a half-dozen chances from 15 feet or under, yet his only significant birdies came on putts of 20 and 55 feet. The other

He wound up with a 69, his eighth consecutive round in the 60s during the FedEx Cup playoffs, yet this one cost him the lead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got fooled a few times there,â&#x20AC;? Woods said, confused by the slope and grain on the greens. Perry has 14 career victories, yet only two of them has come with Woods in the field. Even with a two-shot lead, he is approaching Sunday as though he has nothing to lose. He even playfully challenged the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 1 player. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here I am at 49, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still trying to beat him,â&#x20AC;? Perry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have fun with it. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d better bring his â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; game is all Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to say.â&#x20AC;? For Perry to win the FedEx Cup, he would need a victory Sunday and for Woods to finish in a threeway tie for third or worse. That remains a possibility, given the players stacked up behind them. Phil Mickelson continued

to ooze confidence with his putter and shot a 4-under 66, suddenly believing he can make any putt whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from 4 feet or 40 feet. He was at 4-under 206 along with Sean Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hair (70), who was tied with Woods until pulling a tee shot into the water on the 17th to make double bogey. Padraig Harrington, playing with Woods for the ninth time this year, stopping making birdies to offset his mistakes and shot a 71, leaving him at 207 with Steve Marino (67). Steve Stricker, the No. 2 seed in the FedEx Cup standings behind Woods, got back into the picture, no matter how blurry, with a 66 and was six shots out of the lead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I needed to make a move today to have any sort of chance for tomorrow,â&#x20AC;? Stricker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At least I gave myself an opportunity. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to need another one of those rounds, or maybe even lower.â&#x20AC;?

All of them would like the kind of day Perry enjoyed. His start was flawless in the morning, under cloudy skies and the threat of rain that forced officials to move up the tee times. After pounding a driver, he hit sand wedge to 4 feet. Then came perhaps his best shot of the round, a 5-iron with that familiar draw that settled just outside 6 feet of the cup. Perry made birdie on the next two holes from short range, and quickly found himself tied for the lead. It was Woodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; turn to

catch up, but he never did. He missed three birdie putts inside 12 feet on the front nine, and cost himself two other chances from the bunker â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a fairway bunker on No. 7 that led to bogey, and a greenside bunker on the par-5 ninth that led to par. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was amazing how I had about four or five putts today that the grain was going up the hill, and I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know which one to play. Do I play the grain or do I play the slope?â&#x20AC;? Woods said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just one of those days where I happened to be in some interesting little

spots, even thought I had pretty makeable putts.â&#x20AC;? Perry didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that problem, and even the one time he was threatened with a bogey, he holed his par putt from about 10 feet. Now, he is one more good round away from one the biggest wins of his career that couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come at a better time. His mother is dying of cancer â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Perry nearly missed the British Open when she took a turn for the worse â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health is fading. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one reason Perry put his son, Justin, on the bag over the last month.

“I remember 32 (Scandrick) because they’ve been playing him on ESPN pretty frequently,” Panthers receiver Steve Smith said, followed by a laugh. “By the scouting report we got, he probably won’t be in because he’s been playing continually on the rotation on ESPN.” The Giants’ Steve Smith had 10 catches for 134 yards against the Cowboys last week, while Mario Manningham also had 10 catches for 150 yards. New York had gone 13 games with a 100-yard receiver, then had two against the Cowboys. When Carolina’s Smith last played against the Cowboys in 2007, he had nine catches for 137 yards and a touchdown. Most of the time, no matter which side he lines up on, Smith will be going against Newman, who is coming off an admittedly poor performance of his own. “He’s a competitor like the rest of our team and I think his attitude was great,” Phillips said. “He’s Elmhurst 31, Chicago 6 Findlay 14, Northwood, Mich. 0 Franklin 30, Trine 29 Grand Valley St. 55, Michigan Tech 17 Grinnell 42, Lawrence 0 Hastings 36, Dakota Wesleyan 14 Hillsdale 38, Ashland 19 Idaho 34, N.

challenged like everybody else is.” The 877 yards allowed by the Cowboys rank 30th in the NFL. That is also a yard more than they gave up in their first three games a year ago. Linebacker Keith Brooking spent the last 11 seasons in Atlanta, where he was part of a Super Bowl team as a rookie in 1998, and played under Phillips in 2002 and 2003. He came to Dallas during the offseason to be with Phillips again, replacing Zach Thomas in the middle with James. “I am very confident that this can be an elite defense,” Brooking said. “We are not very consistent right now. ... (The Giants) had a couple of explosive runs where they got on the edge of our defense. Great defenses don’t allow that to take place once in a game. Great defenses don’t allow the ball to be thrown over your heard. We have to put a stop to that immediately.” And get a sack or a turnover while they’re at it.

By CARYN ROUSSEAU Associated Press Writer

CHICAGO — Nik Spayne wakes just before 6 a.m. on school days at his suburban Elgin home, in time to take an hourlong train ride and a bus to the Chicago Academy for the Arts. It’s regular classroom work in the morning for the 17-year-old senior before three hours of dance and vocal training. By the time he’s finished with another few hours of rehearsal and has commuted home, it’s 8 p.m. — more than 14 hours since he woke up. “Then I still need to do my homework and learn my lines and not have a social life and go to bed and do it all again,” Spayne said, sitting in a science lab after finishing his modern dance class. “But it’s worth it.” Spayne, an aspiring musical theater performer, is one of nearly 1.5 million students around the country who attend one of about 1,670 performing arts high schools, colleges or other instructional programs, according to the nonprofit group Arts School Network. After seeing the 1980 movie “Fame,” which follows New York City performing arts students, Spayne thought, “Wouldn’t it be cool to go to a school like that?” Nearly 30 years later, an updated remake of “Fame” is to debut Friday. The movie’s trailer has one student asking: “Somebody’s gotta make it out there. Why can’t it be me?”


Nik Spayne of Elgin, Ill., studies in the hallway at the Chicago Academy for the Arts. Spayne, 17, is one of nearly 1.5 million aspiring student actors, dancers and vocalists nationally, attending 1,670 performing arts schools seeking that spotlight of “Fame.” The competitive drive and quest for success is still present at performing arts schools, which are private, public and charter, but officials say the recession has left them with less money and more to do. They educate students in the classical arts, but also have modern offerings, such as hip-hop dance and pop vocals. In addition, the schools have started teaching business courses to help budding artists learn to make a living. Enrollment has fallen at some private performing arts schools and endowments have lost value, said Roger Shoemaker, associate head for the arts at the boarding school Walnut Hill in Natick, Mass. He said families under financial pressure can no longer afford the tuition,

which at private schools can cost tens of thousands of dollars a year. Some students can receive scholarships or other financial assistance. The school’s endowments have lost 25 percent, said Shoemaker. Other schools say they’ve had to cut arts teachers and budgets. “Across the board it makes it much more difficult,” he said. “The environment for fundraising is pretty difficult. We made our fundraising goal last year, but not everybody can say that.” School officials said they’ve had to become more creative in how they raise money, with some institutions putting on benefit shows featuring famous alumni or current students.

The schools also have responded with new courses that include digital filmmaking, music engineering and electric and acoustic guitar. The classes help find common ground with students who may not be as interested in the classical arts, like ballet or opera, said Ralph Opacic, executive director of Orange County High School for the Arts in Santa Ana, Calif. “We’re trying to use those more current art forms to get them to explore and expand and then hopefully fall in love with classical arts,” Opacic said. Schools have begun exposing students to the business side of arts and entertainment as well, offering courses that equip them with the skills needed to become entrepreneurs.

“It’s important for them to realize today you’ve got to be incredibly versatile,” said Isidore Rudnick, artistic director at The School for Creative and Performing Arts in Cincinnati, home of the recent MTV reality show “Taking the Stage.” “You’ve got to have a savvy business sense. It’s not good enough to be a good actor or a good musician,” Rudnick said. Coursework aside, there’s a stronger reason students are attracted to a performing arts school. “They’re all looking for a place where they can be really passionate as well as becoming a well-rounded person,” said Lauren Williams, a 17-year-old senior and oboe major at Chicago Academy for the Arts. “The classes are so incredibly

structured and formulated. They’re so engaging and so interesting because they connect to your art.” The school’s alumni include actress Lara Flynn Boyle, dancer Tom Gold of the New York City Ballet and film composer Alex Wurman. While “Fame” may be the movie version of what happens in the halls and rehearsal rooms, it does show the true spirit of a performing arts high school, said Rory Pullens, head of school at Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington. “’Fame’ captures that beautifully and we see that manifest in the students every single day,” Pullens said. “They look at the celebrity and the flash and the glory and all of that.” But he said when they enter the halls with “the sweat and the work ethic they need to possess, they come out appreciating the work they’ve put into this and the skill they develop.” For Spayne, the 25 hours a week of rehearsals will go on. He’s applying to colleges to study musical theater and says even if he has to wait tables it will all be worth it if he can have the chance to perform. “It’s almost sacred, in a way, that feeling that you get when you’re on stage,” Spayne said. “Once you’ve gotten it, then you keep striving for that feeling again and so you just immerse yourself in the arts.” On the Net: • “Fame” movie: http://www.

VGCC South Campus marks 40th anniversary of college Vance-Granville Community College brought the celebration of its 40th anniversary to the college’s South Campus, located between Butner and Creedmoor, on Sept. 16. At a special re-dedication ceremony, South Campus Dean Cecilia Wheeler called the occasion “an exciting day for VGCC, for South Campus, and for Granville County.” In remarks to the assembled students, trustees, administrators, instructors and guests, VGCC President Randy Parker summarized the college’s history. The original charter for the college, then known as Vance County Technical Institute, was issued on Sept. 4, 1969. Parker recalled how Granville County leaders joined counterparts in Vance County to build the main campus in the 1970s, leading to the school’s name change.

VGCC President Randy Parker (left) and Board of Trustees Secretary Henrietta H. Clark of Henderson prepare to cut the cake at a Sept. 16 reception at the college’s South Campus during a celebration of the 40th anniversary. South Campus Dean Cecilia Wheeler (right) looks on. In 1982, with the help of state Rep. Billy Watkins, South Campus — the first permanent VanceGranville campus outside

of Vance County — was established in a former Department of Agriculture warehouse. The current facility was

built and dedicated in 1988. Since then, Parker said, “opportunities and programs have expanded, and countless students

and businesses have benefited from having VGCC close at hand. The success of South Campus was a model that paved the way for the establishment of two more campuses, in Franklin County and in Warren County.”The president expressed appreciation to Granville County leaders for supporting both the college’s main campus and South Campus over the years. Granville County commissioners were represented by Commissioner Hubert Gooch, Jr., who is also a former VGCC trustee. VGCC Board of Trustees Chairman Donald Seifert Sr. of Henderson noted that South Campus played a role in economic development for Granville County and made education and training more accessible. “As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, we are reminded of how impor-

tant this college is to the thousands of people who are returning to education to adapt to economic challenges,” Seifert said. “At the same time, VGCC is partnering with others to build a better tomorrow — the new Granville Early College High School is just one example.” Chris Ham, principal of the new high school which will be located near South Campus, was among the guests. The celebration continued with a Student Appreciation Day reception, including a special 40th anniversary cake. The activities were part of a series of anniversary events held at all VGCC campuses during September. The celebration continues in October when the college will host a 40th Anniversary Ball on Oct. 3, followed by a “Festival for the 40th” on Oct. 10. Both events will be held on the main campus.

Celebration of the Constitution held by local DAR chapter


Wedding Planner

The Old Bute Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) observed the 222nd anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution on Sept. 17 in the home of Mary Katherine Teague, with Suzanne D. Duncan as hostess. Regent Sara DavisStancil commented on various changes in committee obligations. She led members in selecting special interest projects, including essay contests and Good Citizenship recognitions open to all schools, armed forces support and the ROTC medal in high schools, and DAR and American Indian schools, all in keeping with DAR objectives of patriotism, history and education. A program for Constitution Week (Sept. 17-23),was presented by Ruby J. Lassiter, who commented that for over a half century the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution has tried to get the signing date declared a national holiday. Their greatest supporter had been the late Sen. Jesse Helms of North Carolina. Reviewing the history of the signing, Lassiter noted that while Benjamin Franklin was hopeful about the 1787 meeting in Philadelphia to amend the Articles of Confederation, which governed the colo-

nies, then “a sort of league of 13 small, independent nations,” George Washington had doubts. Determined to retire to private life after the war, he was persuaded to attend the meeting when Franklin said, “Your presence will give the patriots faith in the results.” Washington remembered the dismal lack of unity in getting the 13 states to equally provide men, weapons, food, and clothing for his army. To get them to act and think as one would be a problem, he thought. Instead of adapting the articles to fit the times, a new document of rules and regulations was the answer. After many compromises, divisions between the Northern and Southern states were overcome and the Constitution was signed. The ratification by nine states would mean the birth of the United States of America. When George Washington was inaugurated the first president on April 30, 1789, ten states had ratified — but North Carolina and Rhode Island were not members of the Union, Lassiter said. North Carolina’s delay stemmed from the division between its Eastern plantation owners with many slaves and the scattered western communities of small farms and frontiersmen who owned

few slaves, Lassister said. “If those in the West didn’t trust the state government controlled by the East, how could they trust a national government so far away? Antifederalists led the rejection of the Constitution at the first North Carolina convention in Hillsborough in 1788. When the national

government began to treat them as a foreign nation, public sentiment changed and the ratification was adopted in Fayetteville in 1789. Rhode Island ratified the following year after Congress passed a bill severing all commercial relations with them,” she said. A American Indian

proverb on conservation was shared by Mary Anne C. Davis: “Treat the earth well. It was not given to your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.” In addition to the regent, other officers for the coming year are Janice J.

— Otto von Bismarck will not be stopped by eloquence.

SUNDAY CRYPTOQUOTE — A conquering army on the border

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s a big requirement to fulfill. You don’t have to do it alone. Ask around for what you need. Most people won’t be able to help, but more than a few will. With a handful of supporters, you’ll meet the challenge. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Clear up any relationship issues, return calls and generally get right with your “people.” When you feel good about your social standing, you’ll be comfortable in your own skin once again. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ve been turning in stellar work. Maybe you still don’t have the money to prove it, but that can be negotiated. For now, decide to keep improving the quality and value of your contribution. You’ll cash in soon enough. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It feels like you’re repeating yourself, and maybe you are. You have something important to say, and the others don’t seem to be listening. Time to change your tune and keep changing it until you get their attention. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll have some financial luck. This comes in the nick of time -- you can now afford to get some help with a project and greatly reduce your stress. The assistance you pay for will be well worth the cost. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There’s a ticker tape of useless information that’s rattling away in your brain. Turn it off, perhaps through meditation or exercise. When you don’t think too much, you wind up accomplishing amazing feats. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It’s not too early to assess whether you’ve been naughty or nice this year. In fact, this is the perfect time to clear up any bad marks on your “record” and commit to doing some philanthropy. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may not consider yourself to be a big networker; however, you do know quite a few people. You’ll enjoy sharing information and learn from your group, too. A new endeavor emerges from the social contacts you make now. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You can be mighty innovative when it comes to stretching a dollar. Make sure you’re penny pinching in an area where it won’t make a big difference, though. Some things really are worth paying for. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You don’t have to work very hard to inspire trust in others. However, keeping that trust is more of an effort. To do so, you’ll have to make good on all that you promise. It’s better to promise very little and then over-deliver. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have beginner’s luck now. Don’t wait for others to approach you. Be the initiator of conversation, business and especially love. He (or she) who has the first word will make the biggest impression. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Clean up and get organized. Those projects that you think you don’t have time for are actually exactly what is holding you back from accomplishing something important to you. So get down to work and be done with them!

‘Halo 3: ODST’: Lots of firepower, nothing fresh By LOU KESTEN Associated Press Writer

The “Star Wars” movies should have taught all science-fiction writers a lesson: One trilogy is enough. Bungie, developer of Microsoft’s blockbuster “Halo” trilogy, wrapped up the story in 2007. The war between humanity and the alien Covenant over, supersoldier Master Chief drifted off into cryogenic sleep. But while Master Chief’s role may be finished, there are probably many more side stories to be told about the interstellar war. “Halo 3: ODST” (Microsoft, for the Xbox 360, $59.99) is one of those — and your enjoyment will depend on how devoted a “Halo” fan you are. “ODST” follows a squad of grunts dealing with events touched upon in “Halo 2.” These Orbital Drop Shock Troopers come to Earth during an alien invasion of the African metropolis New Mombasa — but their mission quickly goes awry and they’re scattered. One trooper, “the Rookie,” wakes up six hours later and sets out to find his five squadmates in the city’s abandoned nighttime streets. Each time he finds a device connected to another soldier, the action switches to a flashback covering that soldier’s role in the battle. It’s a clever device, letting you experience different types of combat in a short time, with Bungie’s usual expertise at making things go boom on a massive scale. Still, none of these experiences feels fresh. And while it’s fun to try on the combat boots of someone other than Master Chief, none of the new characters is more than a battlefield cliche. You can whip through the solo campaign in about six hours, and its conclusion is a letdown. Two stars out of four.


DEAR ABBY: I live with a wonderful woman with whom I am completely in love. I know she feels the same. My problem is she won’t tell me what year she was born. I know she’s older than I am, but by how much I don’t know. She told me that in her previous relationships her husband and boyfriend left her for younger women. I’ve told her age has nothing to do with how I feel about her, but she’s afraid that if I know her exact age I will leave. I have done all I can to reassure her, but she still won’t tell me. What can I do to make her understand that her age is unimportant to me so far as how I feel about her? Or should I just forget about ever knowing her true age? — IN LOVE IN SAN ANTONIO DEAR IN LOVE: You’ve done all you can. Your lady friend has been “snake bit” twice. So if you really love her and don’t care about her age, drop the subject, since you know it’s a painful one for her. Got it? TO MY JEWISH READERS: At sundown, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement and the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, begins — a time for reflection, prayer and repentance. To all of you, may your fast be an easy one.






DEAR LESS THAN ZERO: Please trust me and consult a doctor immediately. Your symptoms are probably stress-related. You may also be depressed from the unrelenting abuse. You are not crazy, but your husband may be. Once you have spoken to your doctor, contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline. They can help you and the boys escape. Their toll-free number is (800) 799-7233. Whether your husband is sick or just an abusive bully remains to be seen. But for your sake and your children’s, do not tolerate this situation. If you stay, he will not only destroy you emotionally, but also your boys.


DEAR ABBY: My husband berates and belittles me constantly. He calls me “worthless, stupid, lazy, nogood and crazy.” He controls my every move and follows me around the kitchen when I’m trying to cook. I got so nervous last week that I dropped a kettle of soup and burned myself. He followed me into the laundry room, watched me load the washer before putting in the detergent, then yelled at me that I was doing it “backward.” He removes the dishes from the Dear dishAbby washer and rearranges Universal Press them so Syndicate they’re the way he thinks they should be. He says I can’t do anything right, and I’m starting to believe him. I leave the house only to buy groceries because I’m afraid people are laughing and staring at me. I sleep half the day. I used to go out and have fun; now I sit at home with the drapes drawn. I don’t have the energy to clean the house. I cry every day. Our two boys are 8 and 11. He controls their every move, too. There’s so much stress in this house they are starting to turn against him. The emotional abuse started a couple of years ago. When I try to discuss it, he calls me crazy and a liar and denies it. I used to be healthy as a horse, but now I have headaches and stomach pains. Friends say I should leave, but I can’t just pick up and walk out with two sons to raise. He threatens to get custody because I am “insane.” I stay because I don’t want to lose my boys. I’m afraid to see a doctor. He may say I’m crazy, too. Please help me. — LESS THAN ZERO IN ILLINOIS

Leonard Cohen performs in Israel, defies boycott By IAN DEITCH Associated Press Writer

RAMAT GAN, Israel (AP) — Leonard Cohen wowed an adoring audience Thursday night, crooning his iconic ballads at his first show in Israel in 30 years and ignoring a political storm over his appearance. The 75-year-old singer entertained fans at Ramat Gan stadium near Tel Aviv. Some in the audience wore black fedora hats, a tribute to one of Cohen’s trademarks. The concert sparked a protest long before it took place on a warm night near the Israeli seashore. Some Palestinian activists called for a boycott because of Israel’s punishing invasion of Gaza, aimed at stopping daily rocket attacks. More than 1,150 Palestinians, including hundreds of civilians, were killed in the three-week offensive that ended in mid-January. Cohen responded by offering to perform in the West Bank city of Ramallah as well. He said all proceeds from the shows would go to Israeli-Palestinian peace organizations. But a pro-Palestinian group called “Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel” urged the singer to cancel the shows and launched a protest campaign. “There are a lot of people who don’t want us here, and anything done here invites controversy,” Cohen’s manager, Robert Kory, told The Associated Press. “But we believe freedom of speech is very, very important.” Kory said the singer established a foundation, “The Fund for Reconciliation, Tolerance and Peace,” to distribute proceeds from the concert. At an event launching the foundation before the concert, Israeli novelist David Grossman, whose son was killed in Israel’s 2006 war in Lebanon,

said he hoped for peace between Israel and the Palestinians. “We are here today to show that with a joint effort, we can redeem each other from this hate,” he said. “Cohen wants the money to go toward changing hearts and to bring peace,” Kory said. He said most of the money will go to the Parents Circle, a joint Israeli-Palestinian group of bereaved parents that helps families from both sides who lost loved ones in the conflict. Top international musicians are slowly returning to perform in Israel after years of staying away due to violence and political tensions. Madonna, Depeche Mode, Faith No More, and others have appeared this year. The 47,000 tickets for Cohen’s concert were snatched up within hours when they went on sale earlier this month. Prices ranged from $90 to $315. Cohen performed Thursday night meticulously dressed in a tailored suit and hat, clutching the microphone as he sang but showing no apparent affects from an incident last week, when he fainted during a concert in Spain. The Canadian songwriter, best known for his dark poetic lyrics, has been making music since the late 60’s. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year. He has been on a worldwide tour since May 2008, and earlier this year played in Australia and Europe. After Israel, he goes on to perform at U.S. venues. Cohen had to come out of retirement five years ago when he discovered that most of his retirement fund had disappeared in a disputed case of mismanagement while he spent time at a Buddhist monastery. He last performed in Israel in 1975. Before that, Cohen entertained Israeli troops during the Mideast war in 1973.

’Lion King’ costumes headed to Smithsonian By BRETT ZONGKER Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — Producers of “The Lion King” musical are donating two of the Broadway show’s elaborate costume pieces to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. On Thursday, museum officials are accepting Simba’s mask and the costume for tribal shaman and show narrator Rafiki to be placed in the entertainment history collection. They’ll be in rare company among about 50 objects from Broadway, including costumes from “Hello, Dolly!,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Rent” and “Cats.” “We’ll have Rafiki next to Dolly Levi. That’s a big thing,” said a giddy Thomas Schumacher, the show’s producer. “The Rafiki costume really speaks to the design and soul of the show,” he said. “This is a completely original creation that doesn’t look like anything else. That’s kind of thrilling.” Designer Julie Taymor created the costumes, puppetry and scenic design

that brought the 1994 animated Disney movie to life on stage in 1997. The hit show has now been seen by 50 million people worldwide — the first American musical to hit that milestone and only the fourth in theater history. The show, featuring the music of Elton John and Tim Rice, including the Academy Awardwinning “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” has been presented in 13 different countries. Museum curator Dwight Blocker Bowers said the show represents an evolution in Broadway design, one reason why he sought out the “Lion King” pieces. It also has an intergenerational appeal, which he said is rare because musical tastes tend to vary by age group. “The musical is an indigenous American art form in terms of how we know it,” Blocker Bowers said. “The Lion King,” he said, “took the musical to areas it had never embraced before,” bringing animals to life with live puppetry and groundbreaking costumes. The museum hopes to display the objects in 2010.

At left, homes in Adriatrica, a development in McKinney, Texas, are designed to look like a Croatian Village. Below is the view from the second level of a home in the development.

‘Adriatica,’ Texas

Developer builds subdivision inspired by Croatian village By JAMIE STENGLE Associated Press Writer

MCKINNEY, Texas — From a chapel sitting serenely on a sliver of land jutting out on a lake, to stone homes with red tile roofs clustered on winding lanes, developer Jeff Blackard is working to bring European village life to a Texas suburb. “What we’re really doing is creating a real, functioning village,” Blackard said. Inspired by Supetar, a port city on the Croatian island of Brac, Blackard began work on the “Adriatica” development about 30 miles north of Dallas a few years ago. So far, it contains about a dozen single-family homes and a row of businesses and shops, including a day spa, an Italian restaurant, a Realtor’s office, a wine bistro and a Starbucks. By the end of next year, expect a replica of Supetar’s port lining the lake. Eventually, plans for the 45-acre development call for 70 or so houses, about 280 condominium units, 100 retail establishments, 100 offices and an 80-room hotel. A replica of Venice’s St. Mark’s Square is planned to serve as a community meeting place. For Anne Petrasek, who has lived at Adriatica since January with her family, it already feels like the ideal European village. “It’s like going on vacation every weekend,” she said. Petrasek, 52, used to live about five minutes away in a more typical suburban development, with a big yard on a golf course. Since moving into her new 3,000-squarefoot, three-bedroom home, she said she’s found the village-type life she wanted, from chatting with people from the balcony to frequenting the development’s shops. “People are more apt to just stop and say hello,” she said. Many of the homes incorporate antique architectural items from Europe, such as gates from Italy. Flowers


The Adriatica subdivision in McKinney, Texas, near Dallas, is inspired by the Croatian village of Supetar on the island of Brac, right down to a town chapel surrounded by water (above), a European-style belltower (right) and homes with rustic stone, wrought iron and wood interiors.

cascade from window boxes. Colorful lights are strung above sidewalks in the retail area. There are even plans to anchor a ship in the harbor and serve as a coffee shop. Blackard, a developer of about 15,000 homes during his almost 30-year career, said that after investing in a hotel in Supetar, it occurred to him that American housing developments should be

more like European villages. “Developers think they put in a fountain and a gazebo and think it’s a community, but it’s not,” he said. “One time I wanted to do it right at all costs,” he said, adding that zoning will allow for features such as zero setbacks from houses to the road, so that, as in a European village, the homes are right off the lanes.

Lots for the homes, or “villas,” begin at $40,000, and most homes are $300,000 and up, but Blackard said someone could build there for less if they wanted. “It’s OK to have an 800-square-foot house. Build something that you want,” he said. Stephen Melman, economic services director at the National Association of Homebuilders in Wash-

ington, D.C., said his group doesn’t keep data on themes in housing developments, but he doesn’t know of anything similar to Adriatica. “In this market, it’s challenging. So if you can make your product stand out, you’ve got a winner,” Melman said. Edward John, a Christian pop singer from Oslo, Norway, said that when he relocated to McKinney to be near his record label, he wasn’t pleased with the town. Then one day while jogging he stopped by an open house at Adriatica. It made him feel like he was back in Europe, he said, and he now plans to build a home there. “I love this area. Coming from Europe, I’m used to the buzz and the people. When I first came here (to Texas) I thought, ‘How am I going to

make it?’” said John, whose record label has now moved its office to Adriatica as well. Adriatica reminded Amparo Abeyta of her native Mexico, so she decided to open a flower shop there. “I love the style,” she said. Eventually, Blackard says, he expects somewhere between 1,000 to 1,500 people to live at Adriatica. Bill Hight, a Dallas restaurant owner moved there with his wife in June 2008. Their 4,400-square-foot home with a patio facing the lake has European elements like arches, balconies, textured walls and a landscaped courtyard. “I think it’s just a slower, more relaxing pace,” said Hight, 69.
