Judge tosses Iglesias’ suit against Oxford police She claims firing when she spoke out about chief By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer

OXFORD – A federal judge has dismissed a former Oxford Police Department administrative assistant’s lawsuit against the municipal government, Chief John Wolford, then-City Manager Tommy Marrow and the then-city human resources leader, Don Jenkins.

Sharon Iglesias claimed she was fired in January 2006 for speaking out about Wolford’s alleged embezzlement from a fund designed Iglesias to finance police undercover drug investigations. In December 2008, the city, Wolford, Marrow and Jenkins moved for a summary judgment, which District Judge James Dever III ordered on Monday, saying Iglesias had caused disharmony within the Police Department. A summary judgment is handed down when there are

no issues of fact remaining to be tried in front of a jury. “We’re pleased with the result and we think it was the right one,” Norwood Blanchard, a Wilmington attorney who defended Oxford against the lawsuit, told the Dispatch on Tuesday. “She had a pretty strong personal ax to grind with the chief,” Blanchard alleged of Iglesias. “She was beating a dead horse. There just wasn’t anything left there, other than her campaign

to get rid of her boss, her crusade against the chief.” Wolford declined comment when contacted by the Dispatch. Charles Monteith, a Raleigh attorney representing Iglesias, expressed disappointment with Dever’s decision and said, “We’re trying to analyze it and decide what our options are.” One choice is to file with the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., with the 30-day filing deadline having started with Dever’s ruling in district court in Raleigh. Dever in March 2008 had already dismissed part of Iglesias’ claims, including that there was a mass conspiracy against

her. The claims left to be decided were regarding her federal rights to freedom of speech and whether there was a wrongful discharge under state law. Dever wrote that a public employer may restrain job-related speech in order “to maintain discipline and ensure harmony as necessary to the operation and mission of its agencies.” Iglesias began working for the city in December 1999 when Roger Paul was chief. Marrow hired Wolford as chief in June 2000. Dever wrote that Iglesias became concerned that Wolford Please see IGLESIAS, page 3A

Future funding questions for water district Local officials, USDA meeting today in Raleigh By AL WHELESS Daily Dispatch Writer

VGCC Warren Campus marks 40th anniversary of community college Vance-Granville Community College brought the celebration of its 40th anniversary to the college’s Warren County Campus in Warrenton on Sept. 23. Warren County Campus Dean George A. Henderson welcomed VGCC students, trustees, administrators, instructors and local citizens to “an exciting day for Warren Campus and for Warren County… to honor our students, re-dedicate our campus, and celebrate our history.” In his remarks, VGCC President Randy Parker summarized the college’s history and mission. The original charter for the college, then known as Vance County Technical Institute, was issued on Sept. 4, 1969. Parker said that classes were offered in Warren County even before the area officially became part of the college’s service area in 1978. Ten years later, Parker said, “With the support of the Warren County commissioners, VGCC brought quality higher education and training into Warren County when this campus was built and dedicated in 1988. Since then, countless students and businesses have benefited from having VGCC close at hand.” The president expressed appreciation to Warren County for supporting the local campus over the years.

Because the drug is so commonly prescribed for older men who may be considering cataract surgery, it bears mentioning that taking tamsulosin (Flomax) within two weeks of cataract surgery increases the risk of experiencing serious post-operative complications. Tamsulosin is commonly prescribed to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia, which affects about 75% of men by age 70. The drug acts on receptors that are located in the smooth muscle of the prostate and bladder neck, as well as in the dilator smooth muscle of the iris. Because of this link, research shows that men who took the drug before cataract surgery were 2.33 times more likely to require post-operative treatment for retinal detachment, lost lens or lens fragment, and endophthalmitis (inflammation of the intraocular cavity). Cataracts affect a large percent of senior citizens age 65 and older in the United States today. It is important that patients inform their ophthalmologist whether they are currently taking alpha-blockers, such as Flomax, or did so in the past. At FOUR COUNTY EYE ASSOCIATES, we recommend timely screening for the early detection and treatment of eye and vision problems. Our goal is to provide you with compassionate, quality, convenient, affordable eye care while giving you the personal attention you deserve. Please call 492-8021 to schedule an appointment. We’re located at 451 Ruin Creek Road, Henderson Professional Plaza, Suite 204. P.S. Research does not indicate that the use of alpha-adrenergic receptor blockers other than tamsulosin is linked to post-cataract surgery complications.

slightly more than two weeks before Iglesias was fired, with Iglesias saying on camera, “The fact is, there was a crime committed here and that’s my opinion.” Dever wrote that, “Even assuming that Iglesias’ initial allegations of misconduct touched on a matter of public concern, once the alleged misconduct had been investigated and not substantiated, the disruptive effect of her continued conduct outweighed any continued interest in her speech.” Iglesias’ claim of wrongful discharge under state law was rejected by Dever because she had relied on free speech rights in North Carolina’s constitution, which are similar to those in the federal constitution.

had been distributing confidential information outside the Police Department and was “creating hate and discontent” within the department, Dever wrote. And Dever noted Iglesias was actively supporting Strickland for mayor in the November 2005 election. Another example was when since-retired Capt. Bob Williamson, Lt. Floyd Griffin and now-Capt. Glen Boyd prepared a memorandum, this one for Marrow and slightly more than two weeks before the firing of Iglesias. The memo described a similar behavioral pattern and the resulting disruption, Dever wrote. Additionally, the judge’s ruling noted Iglesias’ husband, Roy, had written a lengthy letter that was published in the Oxford Public Ledger newspaper prior to the November 2005 election. Woodlief, in a preelection advertisement, asserted the State Bureau of Investigation had thoroughly investigated Wolford and had found no evidence of wrongdoing. Noelle Talley, a spokeswoman for state Attorney General Roy Cooper, told this reporter there never was an SBI probe of Wolford. District Attorney Sam Currin has maintained he did not find any proof of criminal wrongdoing by Wolford and, as a result, saw no need to ask the SBI to explore the allegations of embezzlement. Iglesias gave an interview to Raleigh television station WRAL, which aired a story about Wolford’s alleged embezzlement. Wolford told the station that he had not wanted anyone to know he had been checking to see whether there were any “bad cops,” but the station also noted the city and Wolford had agreed to share control of the drug fund. The WRAL story came

ay yd



cover up alleged misconduct by Wolford. In August 2004, Jim Winston, who is the city’s auditor, expressed concerns to Marrow that a municipal Finance Department employee had embezzled funds, Dever wrote. Marrow directed Winston to investigate and notified Wolford of the possibility of a personnel investigation becoming a criminal matter, Dever wrote. Iglesias said she learned about the probe from Detective Patricia Ford and called two Finance Department workers to ask whether a co-worker had been fired, Dever wrote. Wolford confronted Iglesias and Marrow believed the confidentiality breach disrupted the probe, Dever wrote. Marrow asked Jenkins to investigate, Jenkins went to Iglesias’ office and Iglesias maintained she had checked to see whether the finance employee was still working, Dever wrote. Ford, when questioned by Jenkins, denied telling Iglesias anything about the personnel matter, Dever wrote. Jenkins concluded that Iglesias had committed a serious confidentiality breach and that that investigation had been impaired, Dever wrote. According to Dever, the city, Wolford, Marrow and Jenkins noticed Iglesias’ continued efforts to discredit Wolford and challenge his authority within the Police Department. Iglesias spread rumors about Wolford’s alleged embezzlement and about other alleged indiscretions in his personal life, Dever wrote. Iglesias’ behavior led her co-workers to complain to Wolford, Marrow and Jenkins that Iglesias was disrupting the workplace. An example was a memorandum from Ford in October 2005 expressing dismay that Iglesias

allegedly began embezzling funds in November 2001. Iglesias spoke with several co-workers about her concerns and, in April 2003, reported her concerns to Alice Currin, who was then a city commissioner, Dever wrote. Currin is attempting a political comeback in the Nov. 3 election. In July 2003, Iglesias became acquainted with the chief’s then-wife, Susan Wolford, who was upset with her thenhusband, Dever wrote. The two women met in the Wolford home when the chief was out of Oxford, with the chief’s then-wife crying and telling Iglesias about the chief’s purported marital indiscretions and other character flaws, Dever wrote. And in March 2004, the two women again met, with the chief’s then-wife suggesting the chief was having an extramarital affair, Dever wrote, noting the two women continued to confide in one another. In May 2004, the city investigated Iglesias’ allegations about the chief’s alleged embezzlement and was satisfied with the chief’s explanation. The chief’s reason was he was trying to find out whether any Oxford police officers were protecting illegal drug dealers, Dever wrote. In June 2004, Iglesias spoke to Frank Strickland, Dever wrote. Strickland would use his information from Iglesias to complain about Wolford to the N.C. Department of Justice Training and Standards Commission and to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Dever wrote. Strickand, who is chief of police at Meredith College in Raleigh, was an unsuccessful candidate for mayor in November 2005 and in November 2007 and is again a candidate in the Nov. 3 election. And Strickland has repeatedly argued he believes Mayor Al Woodlief has lied to

FUNDING, from page one Oct. 5, according to Ayscue. He said the session with Beard-Hinton today could lead to a future joint discussion on Phase IB involving the County, USDA Rural Development and the KWA, which has operated for a number of years. As far as possible collaboration with KWA is concerned, Ayscue said, “How can funding be structured, and who would be the applicant? Which would be better from a grant-funding standpoint?” During the Sept. 24 meeting of the County Commissioners’ Planning and Environmental Committee, Ayscue said the KWA is “looking at opportunities to expand and improve its system in the area.” In previous discussions with KWA officials, Ayscue mentioned, “We’ve talked about areas that it might want to serve.” He also told the committee: “If we are going to proceed with the USDA, we’ve got the board’s direction on that.” Ayscue said the guidance of the three members of the panel — Chairman Dan Brummitt, Terry Garrison and Danny Wright — is also needed on the KWA issue and “who is going to end up doing what.” Brummitt represents District 4, which includes Kittrell. He said KWA

officials have done a lot of preparatory work in connection with Phase 1B, and have met with Tim Carpenter, who represents the engineering firm. Fred Hobbs, the principle of the company, told the commitee that ”We could choose to sell them (KWA) bulk water.” He also said: “I think it would be difficult to turn over IB to KWA.” Brummitt replied that “They would use revenue bonds instead of general obligation bonds.” The board chairman mentioned that KWA’s responsibilities might extend to all of IB. “Kittrell would be the applicant (for USDA Rural Development funds) and we (Vance County) would move on to Phase IIA.” He appeared to be in favor of “getting water to them (KWA) at a cost that is similar and won’t hurt the level of cooperation.” During the discussion, Brummitt said “partnership is what we have been talking about.” Carpenter explained that “From a joint partnership, somebody has to be the applicant as far as the USDA is usually concerned. Wright told his fellow members that “It looks like a meeting with the KWA and Hobbs (the firm) and the USDA and us would be in order. Regional collaboration is the way to go. It

BID, from page one $51,000, which prompted a dissent by Councilman Garry Daeke at the July 27 council meeting about the government selling land at $8,000 less than what the city paid more than a halfcentury ago.

The site was a former water supply reservoir for the city, with city- owned land across the road from the pond having once been proposed as a site for a wastewater treatment plant. Henderson’s water supply

Deaths is the most efficient, and it doesn’t duplicate efforts.” He also said: “If Vance County can work collaboratively with the City of Henderson, we can work collaboratively with the KWA.” Ayscue added that “We need to work together. There is no question about it.” When the question of the cost of buying water from Henderson for the overall project was brought up, Brummitt said: “I think we need to look at everything.” On Oct. 5, the committee will recommend to the Board of Commissioners a progress schedule for the water district that includes starting construction on Feb. 1 of 2010. Referring to the proposed schedule at the Sept. 24 meeting, Brummitt said: “I’m in support of the time-line, which is rather ambitious. We have let this project languish too long, and we need to be ambitious.” Hobbs advised that construction of the project is ready to proceed if the schedule is approved by the Board of Commissioners. Wright didn’t seem to mind ending a sentence with a preposition: “Full speed ahead is what we are committing to.”

Talecris Biotherapeutics delayed IPO set to debut Research Triangle Park firm makes protein therapies NEW YORK (AP) — Talecris Biotherapeutics Inc. is expected to go public this week after a two-year pause, potentially giving the two private equity firms behind the biotechnology company a payday while allowing Talecris to pay debt. The Research Triangle Park, N.C.-based maker of protein therapies is offering 28.9 million shares for $18 to $20 apiece, while stockholders are offering 15.8 million shares, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing. The company said it would use about $515 million in proceeds to pay loans, and shareholders Cerberus Capital Management and Ampersand Ventures will raise $300 million by selling their own stock. The offering is expected to be the largest this week, as a growing number of companies are once again turning to the equity market for capital now that the financial crisis seems to have abated. Talecris, which originally planned to go public in 2007, pulled the IPO in December that year due to uncertainties regarding future plasma supplies. Morningstar analyst Damien Conover said the “window” for biotech IPOs seems to be opening again

as the market improves and companies search for capital. The downturn in the market was especially hard on biotech IPOs which are already considered high-risk stocks. Talecris, though, is already an established biotech operation, with about 4,800 employees and $1.4 billion in revenue last year. Founded in 2005, Talecris makes a range of plasma-derived protein therapies, including intravenous treatments for immune system conditions and lung conditions. In its SEC filing, the company said it ranks third in the world, with about 12 percent of the market, behind leader Baxter International Inc., Deerfield, Ill., and CSL Behring of King of Prussia, Pa. In June, CSL Behring parent CSL Ltd. of Australia pulled out of its plan to buy Talecris for $3.1 billion, less debt, following a challenge by the Federal Trade Commission. A key revenue driver for Talecris is Gamunex IGIV, which is used to boost the antibodies of patients with compromised immune systems because of issues ranging from genetic conditions to chemotherapy treatment side effects. Gamunex had about 21 percent of the U.S. market in 2008. The market itself for plasma-derived protein therapies was worth about $9.7 billion in 2007 and has been growing at a compound annual rate of about 8 percent, the com-

pany said. For Talecris, expansion into international markets is a key strategy. Last year, 80 percent of its sales came from North America, while the region represented only about 40 percent of the global market for plasma product sales. Baxter, CSL Behring, and Talecris also compete in the A1PI market with products aimed at boosting a protein that protects the lungs from inflammation. Talecris said its A1PI Prolastin product had a 67 percent share of sales in the U.S. in 2008 and 90 percent in the European Union. Lawrence D. Stern, 52, has been the CEO of Talecris since 2007 and a director since 2005. He is also chairman. Chief Financial Officer John M. Hanson, 57, has held the position since 2005. Risks the company faces include shifts in government and insurance company reimbursement policies, as Talecris’ products are primarily used in hospital or physician settings. If payors reduce reimbursement, that could prompt customers to stop administering the product, cut the doses, or to substitute lower cost products, the company said. Underwriters for the IPO are Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Citi, and JPMorgan Securities. The company will be listed on the Nasdaq Global Market under the symbol “TLCR.”

Consumer confidence unexpectedly falls in Sept. after 3-month climb By ANNE D’INNOCENZIO AP Retail Writer

NEW YORK — Americans’ worries about job security flared up in September, causing a widely watched barometer of consumer confidence to fall unexpectedly and raising more concern about the upcoming holiday shopping season. The New York-based Conference Board, a private research group, said that its Consumer Confidence Index dipped to 53.1 in September, down from the revised 54.5 reading in August. Economists surveyed by Thomson Reuters had expected a reading of 57. The index — fueled by signs that the economy might be stabilizing — had enjoyed a three-month climb since hitting a historic low in February of 25.3 but has been bumpy since June as rising unemployment has caught up with shoppers. A reading above 90 means the economy is on solid footing. Above 100 signals strong growth. Economists watch consumer sentiment because spending on goods and services for consumers, including housing and health care, accounts for about 70 percent of U.S. economic activity by federal measures. The Conference Board’s Present Situation Index, which measures consumers’ current assessment of the economy, declined to 22.7 from 25.4. The Expectations Index, which measures consumers’ outlook over the next six months, dipped to 73.3 from 73.8 last month. The big concern is the job market. Economists surveyed by Thomson Reuters project job losses slowed in September. On average, they predict 180,000 were lost this

month, down from 216,000 in August. But Labor Department figures to be released this Friday are projected to show unemployment ticking up to 9.8 percent in September from 9.7 percent in August. The weak job market, along with tight credit, has led shoppers to limit spending and focus on discounts when they do buy. Even those not worried about losing a job or finding a new one are embracing frugal behavior, buying only necessities and using more coupons. Economists expect holiday sales to be at best flat from a year ago, the weakest holiday season since at least 1967 when the Commerce Department started collecting the data. Badillo projects sales for October through December won’t change from last year, compared with the 4.5 percent decline last year from the year before.

The consumer confidence survey was sent to 5,000 households and had a cutoff date of Sept. 22.

Fed moves on credit card protection plan By JEANNINE AVERSA AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve proposed rules Tuesday to better protect Americans from sudden hikes in interest rates on credit cards. The proposal would generally bar rate increases during the first year after an account is opened. It also would ban — with a few exceptions— increasing the rate on existing credit card balances. For instance, if a customer is behind more than 60 days on a payment, the rate on the existing balance can be boosted. “This proposal is another step forward in the Federal Reserve’s efforts to ensure that consumers who rely on credit cards are treated fairly,” said

Fed member Elizabeth Duke, the point person on the effort. The proposal also would require credit card companies to obtain a customer’s consent before charging fees or transactions that exceed their credit limit, and would forbid companies from issuing credit cards to people under the age of 21 unless they have the ability to make the required payments or a parent or other co-signer. The Fed is required to take the action under legislation passed by Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama in May.

The public, industry and other interested parties will have an opportunity to weigh in on the Fed’s proposal. The provisions are slated to take effect on Feb. 22, 2010.

Edward Cox was named state GOP chairman at a state committee meeting in Albany on Tuesday. Cox is married Cox to the late president’s daughter Tricia. The party is looking to make some gains in elections next year. New York Republicans have not held a statewide post since Gov. George Pataki left office at the end of 2005. Cox has corporate legal experience and a political pedigree that includes a grandfather who served in the state Assembly and sat on New York’s highest court. His lone flirtation with elective office was a 2006 Senate run. It fizzled before the primary.

Goodyear: Contract provides $215 million in savings CLEVELAND (AP) — Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. says a new national contract with the United Steelworkers union will save the company $215 million over the four-year life of the agreement. Combined with earlier staff-reduction agreements at five plants, the Akron, Ohio-based tire maker said Tuesday that it expects $555 million in savings over four years. Goodyear agreed to invest $600 million over four years to upgrade plants represented by the Steelworkers. The agreement ratified in mid-September covers about 10,300 workers at plants in Akron; Fayetteville, N.C.; Gadsden, Ala.; Buffalo, N.Y.; Topeka, Kan.; Danville, Va. and Union City, Tenn.

Wash. gov: 787 loss wouldn’t be end of Boeing here OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Gov. Chris Gregoire (GREG’-wahr) says it won’t be the end of aerospace in Washington if Boeing picks another state for its second 787 assembly line. Boeing is expected to pick a location for its new 787 plant by year’s end. Washington is a competitor, but South Carolina is

also making a strong play. Gregoire notes a second 787 line could mean about 900 jobs. She says people have to compare that with Washington’s existing aerospace work force of about 80,000. Gregoire says she’s going to fight hard for the new assembly line. But she also says the decision is beyond her control. Boeing’s relationship with its Machinists union could be the biggest factor in the assembly line decision. A top union official has told politicians to stay out of those talks.

N.C. treasurer puts new travel policy in place RALEIGH (AP) — State Treasurer Janet Cowell has issued a new travel policy for employees who are reimbursed by companies through which the state’s pension funds invest money. The policy change unveiled Tuesday comes after details were disclosed about business trips taken by then-chief investment officer Patricia Gerrick while managing the state’s $64 billion retirement system. Cowell said in an interview with The Associated Press that an employee now can’t be reimbursed directly from investment companies or investment advisory boards when they pay for the employee’s trip. Employees now will get paid back for expenses through the State Treasurer’s Office. Cowell said the change increases transparency within the department. The treasurer declined to release more details about why Gerrick was let go several weeks ago.

Man accused of killing 2 N.C. cops will stand trial CHARLOTTE (AP) — A judge has ruled that the man charged with killing two North Carolina police officers in 2007 is competent to stand trial. The Charlotte Observer reported on its Web site Tuesday that Superior Court Judge Albert Diaz said Demeatrius Montgomery did not prove he was incompetent to stand trial on two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of two CharlotteMecklenburg officers. He’s charged with killing 34-year-old Officer Sean Clark and 35-yearold Officer Jeff Shelton, who were shot to death March 31, 2007. Doctors testified for the defense that the 27-yearold Montgomery likely

suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. They said he won’t talk to his lawyers and can’t assist in his defense. Prosecutors presented evidence that Montgomery often talked by phone to his family from jail and has written letters to them.

N.C. man attacked with his own hedgeclippers WINSTON-SALEM (AP) — Police have arrested three teenagers for assaulting a North Carolina man with his own hedge clippers. Multiple media outlets reported that WinstonSalem police made the arrests Monday and Tuesday after robbers hit a 53-yearold Winston-Salem man in the head and face Saturday with the clippers. Police say Billy Lee Brown returned home in the afternoon and caught the three robbing his house. He was transported to a hospital for treatment. Seventeen-year-old John Henry Brown, 18-year-old Akeem Wilson and 19-year-old Shermain Cortez Moses face charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon, assault with a deadly weapon and felony breaking and entering. They are being held on $200,000 bond. No attorneys were listed for the suspects.

Teen accused in threat on western Colorado school PALISADE, Colo. (AP) — Prosecutors say an 18-yearold man was plotting a “profoundly disturbing” attack on his western Colorado high school with weapons and explosives. Robert Dell Johnson is being held on $100,000 bail on suspicion of criminal solicitation and interference with an education institution. Mesa County District Attorney Pete Hautzinger revealed few specifics on the investigation into the threat against Palisade High School, but the sheriff said the threat was credible. Deputies arrested Johnson Monday night at his home. Johnson’s attorney described his client as a “young man talking in anger and with nothing to back it up.” Johnson is scheduled to be in court Oct. 8 for formal filing of charges.

A pragmatic look at Obama’s pragmatism II III

Daily Meditation Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand. Micah 2:1

Our Opinion

Our town, your paper Anyone who doubts that newspapers can hold the interest of young people should actually talk to a few. On Monday and Tuesday, at Vance Charter School and Henderson Middle School, representatives of this newspaper spoke with students. The VCS kids were all fifth-graders. Students at HMS ranged throughout the school’s grade-levels and are taking part in the Citizen Schools program held after the class-day concludes. In both groups, many students were not only familiar with The Daily Dispatch, they had appeared in the paper themselves, or knew someone who had. And it wasn’t just a case of being mentioned as a member of the honor roll, or getting a hit in a Little League baseball game, although those are reason enough to be included in the newspaper. No, these kids, their families and their neighbors were part of this town’s “everyday big news.” In one class, a child noted that her father was the driver of a vehicle involved in a serious traffic accident that had made the front page. Another child noted that her neighbor had died in a motorcycle crash and she read about it in the paper. Another little girl related a news story about a sibling that started out a little scary in the telling, but to the relief of the listener has ended with her sister furthering her education at a respected North Carolina college; a case of “bad news turned good.” Thankfully, there were other positive stories told among the students, as well — tales of siblings and cousins who had achieved beyond the norm in sports or in school. After all, we know that not all the news of the town is bad, nor is only bad news reflected upon our pages. And in every class, there were stories, good and bad, related back to this newspaper’s employees by the children whose friends and families whose lives and times have “made the news.” The key message derived from these hours spent with children: The Daily Dispatch — like newspapers particularly in communities our size and smaller, all across America — is woven into the fabric of this town. The Daily Dispatch is a part of this community, and this community is part and parcel of every day’s mission at The Daily Dispatch. We promise to never forget that. And we hope that you, our readers, can make that promise, as well.

Quotable “The District Attorney’s Office in the 30 years since Mr. Polanski left the jurisdiction, has not once sought to have him extradited. If it had, there would have been a hearing regarding the misconduct in this case.” — Roman Polanski, attorneys in a July filing as American prosecutors dispute Polanski’s claim that they had never tried to nab him after he fled overseas to escape sentencing on charges he had sex with a 13-year-old girl. “We completely understand why our lending partners like Bank of America want assurances that the recent allegations against us won’t happen again. We are taking a number of steps to ensure this, including providing ethics training to all of our staff.” — ACORN Housing Corp., in a statement after Bank of America Corp. suspended its work with the housing affiliate of embattled community organizing group ACORN.

“When John McCain said we could just ‘muddle through’ in Afghanistan, I argued for more resources and more troops to finish the fight against the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11, and made clear that we must take out Osama bin Laden and his lieutenants if we have them in our sights,” Barack Obama thundered as he accepted the Democratic nomination for president in Denver last year. “John McCain likes to say that he’ll follow bin Laden to the gates of Hell. But he won’t even go to the cave where he lives.” It was a shabby bit of rhetoric, even for a campaign. Insinuating that McCain, of all people, didn’t have the intestinal fortitude to take the fight to bin Laden was not only absurd on its face, it smacked of overcompensation coming from the former community organizer whose greatest foreign policy passion prior to his presidential bid had been nuclear disarmament. But the line did what it needed to do: communicate that Obama had the sort of true grit required to fight the good, i.e. popular, war in Afghanistan. That war may or may not be good anymore, but it is most certainly not popular. And so what was for Obama a “war of necessity” has become a de facto war of choice. At least that’s

the sense one gets as the president is suddenly searching for a politically palatable strategy other than the one he announced months ago. Now, I think it would amount to both breathtaking cynicism and, far worse, Jonah bad policy Goldberg for Obama to abandon Tribune Media AfghaniServices stan to the Taliban and al-Qaida. That goes for the “Biden plan,” which would amount to little better than a public relations effort whereby we would score regular symbolic victories while steadily losing the war. But if it’s sincere, I welcome Obama’s willingness to rethink his position on an issue in which he invested so much political capital and machismo. Obama came into office swearing he was a pragmatist who would support any approach that worked. He liked to invoke Franklin Roosevelt as his lodestar, for Roosevelt championed “bold, persistent experimentation.” Discussing the economy, Obama told “60 Minutes”: “What you see in FDR that I hope my team can

emulate is not always getting it right but projecting a sense of confidence and a willingness to try things and experiment in order to get people working again.” That spirit has been woefully lacking in Obama’s presidency so far. During the campaign, Obama’s top domestic priorities were reform of health care, education and energy. When an economic crisis that is — according to Obama, at least — second only to the Depression exploded in front of him, Obama the alleged pragmatist concluded that, mirabile dictu, his year-old agenda was the perfect solution. Obama insisted that as president of both “red” and “blue” America, he was open to ideas from both sides of the aisle. But his stimulus bill was as partisan and one-sided as Democrats claimed George W. Bush’s tax cuts were. At least Bush’s tax cuts actually cut taxes. It remains to be seen whether Obama’s stimulus stimulated anything at all. After ending the war in Iraq and taking the fight to bin Laden’s cave, direct engagement with the Iranian regime was candidate Obama’s greatest foreign policy priority. Partly this stemmed from the fact that he accidentally suggested in a debate that he would meet with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad without preconditions. Rather

than admit he was wrong, Obama stuck to his idee fixe throughout the campaign. Since being elected, it seems that his off-the-cuff slipup wasn’t that off the cuff. Despite an ever-increasing number of lies, subterfuges and outrages on the part of the Iranians, the Obama administration has seemed convinced that they can be talked into compliance with the so-called international community. But the optimist can look at Obama’s newfound openmindedness on Afghanistan and his potential orchestration of international sanctions against Iran as proof that reality is prying him from his ideological cocoon. Alas, there’s another way of reading recent events. Critics always claimed that Obama was a very left-wing fellow who was never the centrist he claimed to be. The pessimist might suspect that Obama’s newfound pragmatism only manifests itself when it permits him to abandon the centrist positions that may have helped him get elected but are of no use to him politically anymore. What seemed like principled centrism in 2008 might simply be exposed as left-wing expediency in 2009. Here’s hoping the optimists are right.

Letters to the Editor Obama needs an old first sergeant To the editor:

A nutty response from ACORN Isn’t it obvious? If you believe you’re the object of a witchhunt, the first thing you do is stop hanging around with witches. You’d think that’d be common sense, but then, the paradox of common sense is, it’s not all that common. So Bill Clinton, though dogged by a perpetual investigation desperate for dirt, decided to go ahead and play slap and tickle with the hired help. And Larry Craig, though the object of rumors about his hidden sex life, didn’t think twice about widening his stance in that men’s room stall. And ACORN, though accused of every act Leonard of malfeasance this side of Pitts the Manson murders, failed to divest itself of the sort of Distributed by imbeciles who would give Cagle Cartoons advice — on hidden camera, yet — on how a prostitute and pimp might hide their profits from the IRS. You are surely familiar with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. It’s a nonprofit group, founded in 1970, that advocates for a higher minimum wage and more money for urban schools and also offers free tax preparation, voter registration and mortgage counseling for the poor. Or, it is one of the five families of the New York Mafia, a vast criminal enterprise specializing in voter fraud, prostitution, drug dealing, armed robbery, jaywalking, spitting on the sidewalk and taking more than 10 items into the Ten Items or Less line. Which one you believe depends on whether you get your news from Fox or from sane people. This much is inarguable: Because a young lawyer named Barack Obama once represented it in a voter rights lawsuit, ACORN has proven a useful obsession for the president’s political opponents. And ACORN has rewarded that obsession, providing the witch hunters a whole coven of witches. This would include investigations of alleged voter fraud in Las Vegas and Miami,

delinquent taxes, the embezzlement of nearly a million dollars by the organization’s former chief financial officer, a decision by the leadership to hide that embezzlement from the rank and file, and growing concern that the group may have used tax-deductible charitable contributions for partisan purposes, which is legally proscribed. So if it’s not the Manson Family, well, it ain’t the Brady Bunch, either. Now there’s this hidden camera sting wherein two conservative activists, posing as pimp and prostitute, visited a number of ACORN offices seeking advice on how to hide their criminal income from the government. The only thing more ludicrous than the premise is the fact that ACORN staffers actually gave the requested advice without flinching, even when the “pimp” suggested his workforce might include “children from El Salvador.” Faced with a loss of government funding, public outrage, and a severing of ties by such partners as the IRS and Bank of America, ACORN has filed suit against the two activists, contending that the videos constitute illegal wiretapping. This, I believe, is called killing the messenger. Meaning that whatever legal merit the lawsuit has or does not have, it could hardly be more wrongheaded as a response to the burgeoning controversy. It suggests that even at this juncture, ACORN simply doesn’t get it. The issue here isn’t a hidden camera sting. Rather, it is ACORN itself. If it is not the cabal of thugs some of its critics contend, it “is” an organization whose sloppiness and unreadiness for prime time become more manifest each passing day. The ascension of its one-time lawyer has propelled ACORN irrevocably into the national spotlight. If it wishes to survive the experience with its mission or its remaining credibility intact, it will accept some friendly advice: Don’t kill the messenger. Kill the witches instead.

In 1966, I graduated from college and became a second lieutenant in the United States Air Force. My first assignment at Keesler Air Force Base, I became a commander of an 800 man student squadron. What an ego-booster to be in charge of 800 students, 12 veteran training instructors (T.I.s), five administrative airmen, and one wise old first sergeant. Prior to this, my only experience of leadership, decision making and responsibility revolved around working part time, playing on sports teams, and being a student. Although being extremely “green,” I jumped into my new career with enthusiasm, confidence, and a degree of arrogance that I knew best for everyone. I made decisions and changes with minimal forethought and practically no input from a career staff having eons of years’ experience. As the days passed, squadron morale began to slip, effectiveness dissipated, I was working more, and my image of myself was not shared by others (sound familiar). About this time, my first sergeant asked, “Sir, can I speak to you man to man?” What Master Sergeant Dewey said to me I never forgot and carried with me through a very successful Air Force career. “Sir, you have an outstanding team of T.I.s who are extremely capable of doing their jobs … if you will let them. If you delegate and trust them they will take care of the students and both you and the Air Force will benefit.” I likened this experience to President Obama who charged onto the scene as a naïve and inexperienced leader who felt compelled to do something because that’s what he thought leaders were suppose to do. I’m confident President Obama has never had the benefit of a Master Sergeant Dewey and, in turn, the insight to surround himself with true professionals as opposed to political parasites. In this case, I believe President Obama has been too eager to do his own thing without first taking time to fully analyze the problems, gather facts, set priorities, obtain bipartisan input, formulate a plan, properly brief the American people, and implement the best team plan possible (leadership 101). The situation President Obama finds himself in is like a second lieutenant who has been given the duties of a wing commander without the benefit of the basic knowledge of how a 5,000 man wing operates and the lack of wisdom to find out how. What President Obama needs is one wise old first sergeant who is not afraid to tell it like it is. John R. Metzger, USAF (Retired) Henderson

collision risk was 23 times greater. Dialing a cell phone and using or reaching for an electronic device increased risk of collision about six times in cars and trucks. The Virginia Tech researchers found the risks of texting generally applied to all drivers, not just truckers. A separate report by Car and Driver magazine found that texting and driving is more dangerous than drunken driving. Congress is watching closely. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., who will address the summit, and other Democrats introduced legislation in July that would require states to ban texting or e-mailing while operating a moving vehicle or lose 25 percent of their annual federal highway funding. The Obama administration has not taken a position on the bill. Transportation officials will try to develop a consensus on the roadway hazards and hear warnings from young adults who caused car accidents because they were texting while driving. Some groups want tough laws on the distractions. The National Safety Council wants a total ban on cell phone use while driving. The Washington-based Advocates for Highway and

Auto Safety has petitioned the government to consider federal rules that restrict talking and texting by drivers of tractor trailers, motorcoach buses and large vans. Other groups have focused on texting, which has grown from nearly 10 billion messages a month in December 2005 to more than 110 billion in December 2008, according to CTIA — The Wireless Association, the cellular phone industry’s trade group. The Governors Highway Safety Association, which represents state highway safety officials, recently reversed course and said it would support new laws banning texting behind the wheel. The Alliance for Automobile Manufacturers, which represents 11 automakers, including General Motors, Ford and Toyota, said it supports a ban on texting and phone calls using a handheld device. CTIA also supports a ban on texting while driving but has argued that education and enforcement are critical to changing driver behavior. CTIA and the National Safety Council announced plans for public service announcements warning teen drivers of the dangers of distracted driving.

Dan Rather’s lawsuit against CBS dismissed NEW YORK (AP) — An appeals court has dismissed Dan Rather’s $70 million breach of contract lawsuit against CBS Corp. Rather sued CBS and its top executives in 2007. He claims they removed

him from his “CBS Evening News� anchor post after controversy over a report about President George W. Bush’s military service. A state court ruled unanimously Tuesday that the lawsuit should be dismissed.

Rather’s lawyer, Martin Gold, says he is disappointed and will ask the state’s Court of Appeals to review the decision. A CBS spokesman says the decision pleases the network.

Raider, Viking cross country compete in conference meet

Marlins’ 5-4 win a blow to Braves playoff hopes


By GEORGE HENRY Associated Press Writer

ATLANTA — Manager Bobby Cox wasn’t terribly concerned after the Atlanta Braves lost a tight game in a close playoff race. “We almost pulled it off,” Cox said. “We had the bases loaded. We had a couple chances. Anything can happen.” Jorge Cantu hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the seventh and the Florida Marlins damaged Atlanta’s playoff hopes, winning 5-4 Tuesday night to snap the Braves’ seven-game winning streak. Atlanta, which had won eight of 10 and 15 of 17 overall, began the night two games behind NL wild card-leading Colorado with six games left. Chris Coghlan had three hits and scored twice for the Marlins, who had lost three of four. Florida would be eliminated from playoff contention if the Rockies beat Milwaukee later Tuesday. Cameron Maybin’s two-run homer gave the Marlins a 4-1 lead in the fifth inning, but Matt Diaz hit a tying three-run drive off Brian Sanches in the sixth. “We’ll come tomorrow ready to play,” Diaz said. “Tonight we faced Josh Johnson. You get four runs, you say you’d take Please see BRAVES, page 3B

Making themselves at home

Raiders get three-set conference victory at N. Vance By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor

Down two sets to none against rival Southern Vance in their own gymnasium Tuesday night, Northern Vance tried to mount a comeback, desperate to avoid a sweep. Northern held a 21-15 lead late in the third, but the Raiders went on a big 10-1 rally to close out the match and get the three-set win. “We knew that Northern would give us their best game and we had to be prepared to give them our best game at every position,” said Southern Vance coach Tracey Turner. The match was big for both schools, and not just because of the local rivalry. In the newly realigned Carolina 3A Conference, wins are precious, and teams will likely be clawing for the final playoff spots. Southern evens up their

conference record at 2-2, with their other win coming against J.F. Webb. Two matches with powerhouse Cardinal Gibbons are looming, as well as rematches with Orange and Chapel Hill. “This is where we needed to be at this point in the conference,” Turner said. After a strong start to the season in non-conference play, Northern has had a rough time against conference opponents. They’ve played all five conference foes, and currently sit at 0-5. “What you’ll see is some changes,” said Vikings coach William Hoyle. “Some of the players will probably be pleased with the changes, and some of them won’t, but we’re going to do something different.” “My thought is it’s not going to hurt us any.” The first set opened up with the two teams trading points.

Colts complete sweep, get conference win over Crusaders By KELLEN HOLTZMAN Special to the Dispatch

Crossroads Christian rebounded from a tough loss against Kerr-Vance on Friday with a commanding three-set sweep over an inexperienced Norlina Christian squad Tuesday. After controlling the first set, Crossroads withstood a competitive second frame from Norlina to coast to a 25-12, 25-18, 25-7 Carolina Christian Conference victory. Led by Morgan Davis with six kills and eight aces, the Colts notched their second win over the Crusaders this season. “I keep encouraging them to keep their intensity up,” said Crossroads coach Christina Salinas.

“That’s something we’ve been working on these last couple of weeks. I stress to them, whether we are playing Norlina or any team, that they need to be aggressive. And sometimes they weren’t today, which is why we gave up some points that we shouldn’t have.” Most of those points came in the second set as Norlina tried to stage a comeback. The Colts built a lead as large as 14-4 in the second before the Crusaders narrowed the gap to 19-14. But that was as close as J.D. Wright’s Norlina team could get, as Crossroads held on for the seven-point set win. Wright’s team is made up of mostly freshmen

and sophomores with only one senior and two middle school players rounding out the roster. “We’re a young team, but I’m not going to use that as an excuse because we’ve played well at times,” Wright said. “We’re a good team. We just need more experience. And this is where we get it — against a team like Crossroads.” The Crusaders were led by Anna White, Anna Britt Harty and Taylor Eatmon with two kills apiece. The serving duo of Davis and Erica Deal proved to be too much for Norlina to handle in the third set. The Crusaders jumped out to a 2-0 lead, but the stronPlease see COLTS SWEEP, page 3B

Southern Vance hosted Tuesday’s Carolina 3A Conference cross country meet, but it was Chapel Hill’s competition. The Chapel Hill program has 70 runners, but 18 competed Tuesday. That was all they needed. CHHS took first in the girls’ event, with a total score of 15. Southern took second at 107, and Northern did not have enough runners to score in either the girls’ or boys’ meets. Chapel Hill also scored 15 in the boys’ meet, beating Southern’s 93. Both the top finishers in the boys’ and girls’ meets were from Chapel Hill — Alexis Williams (21:23) and Jacob Hoerger (19:45). Northern’s Michelle Jones finished 15th overall. The top Southern Vance female performers were Evianey Carrillo, Brandy Ayscue, Taylor Stanton, Ilesha Floyd and Shaquana Hargrove. The top male Raider finishers were Justin Furlow, Caleb Garrett, George Richardson, Daniel Lawton, Johnathon Butler, Tony Tart and Sam Moreno. Northern Vance’s Travis Edgerton was ninth overall, and Lee Root finished 16th overall. Southern coach Michael Bean the meet was a “moral victory” for his team, as every Raider runner improved his/her time. Southern’s next meet is scheduled for Oct. 6 at Chapel Hill. Northern has an Oct. 6 meet scheduled against Cardinal Gibbons and Orange.

Kerr-Vance’s boys cross country team tied for first in Tuesday’s meet held at the school. KVA tied with Faith Christian, with a score of 34. Wayne Christian finished with a score of 68. John Allen was the top overall runner out of 30 competitors, with a time of 20:29. Cam Dickerson was fifth overall with his time of 22:18. Justin Commee (sixth overall, 22:25), Devonne Smith (10th, 23:57) and Zack King (24:19) round out the top five KVA runners. The girls meet was unofficial, as the coaches agreed to let four girls score for each team instead of the required five. KVA only had four girls available to run. Addison Mabry, the top Spartan girl, finished fifth overall with a time of 28:31. Also running for KVA were Logan Teeter (ninth overall, 30:52), Britney Lopez (11th, 32:46) and Farrah Alkanan (17th, 38:39).

NFL Vick warns DC crowd away from dogfighting WASHINGTON (AP) — Michael Vick told a sparse crowd at a Washington church on Tuesday that dogfighting is pointless and he doesn’t know why he risked his career for it. “I got caught up in the culture,” the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback said at Covenant Baptist Church, in one of the city’s poorest neighborhoods. “I never thought that I would get caught.” The former Atlanta Falcons star was released from federal custody July 20 after serving 18 months of a 23-month sentence for running the ring in Surry County, Va. The church appearance was sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States. Vick has been working with the group since his release and has appeared at similar events in Atlanta, Chicago and Philadelphia. “I used poor judgment. I had people around me who didn’t have my best interests at heart,” he said.

Report: Freeney could miss 2 to 3 weeks INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney could miss two to three weeks with an injured right quadriceps, according to a report on ESPN’s Web site. The story cited an unnamed league source. Colts spokesman Craig Kelley said the team would not provide a more detailed injury report until Wednesday. Freeney’s agent, Gary Wichard, did not respond to e-mails sent by The Associated Press. Freeney was injured on the last play of the third quarter of Sunday’s victory over Arizona. He walked to the locker room and team president Bill Polian said Monday night that Freeney said “if he could walk, he could play.” Freeney has four sacks this season, fourth in the NFL and AFC, and is a former league sacks champion.

With Pennington out, Dolphins get Thigpen By STEVEN WINE AP Sports Writer

MIAMI — Chad Pennington’s season officially ended with a trade that didn’t involve him. The Miami Dolphins placed Pennington on the reserve-injured list to create a roster spot for quarterback Tyler Thigpen, who was acquired Tuesday from the Kansas City Chiefs for an undisclosed draft pick. Pennington hurt his right shoulder Sunday at San Diego, an injury that leaves his career in jeop-

ardy. At 33, he likely faces a third operation on the shoulder since 2005. Thigpen shores up depth behind second-year pro Chad Henne, who is expected to make his first NFL start Sunday against Buffalo. Rookie Pat White is the Dolphins’ other quarterback. Thigpen, a third-year pro, went 1-10 as a starter for the woeful Chiefs last year and threw for 2,608 yards with 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Kansas City acquired Matt Cassel in the offseason, and Thigpen lost a battle

this year with Brodie Croyle for the No. 2 job. Thigpen is excited about the move to Miami, even though the Dolphins are 0-3, said his agent, Joel Turner. “It’s not like that team is short on talent — they won the division last year,” Turner said. “It’s a wonderful opportunity. Nobody does it like Bill Parcells. For Bill Parcells to believe in Tyler speaks volumes about Tyler.” Parcells may have wildcat duty in mind for Thigpen, who ran a spread offense last year with the

Chiefs. At 225 pounds, he’s a powerful runner and the first quarterback in Chiefs history to score a touchdown three ways: as a passer, rusher and receiver. Henne is expected to get an extended opportunity as a starter. Taken in the second round of the 2008 draft, he has been considered Pennington’s heir apparent for more than a year. The Dolphins will be Thigpen’s third organization. He was a seventhround draft pick by Minnesota in 2007.

He kept us in the game, but we weren’t able to capitalize a couple times.” Florida went ahead for good in the seventh. Coghlan led off with a double and advanced on Maybin’s sacrifice. Hanley Ramirez was intentionally walked before Cantu’s hit off Kenshin Kawakami (7-12) gave the Marlins the lead. “We just want to finish strong,” Cantu said. “Whatever happens, we have a winning record. I’m proud of this team. We had a lot of players who came through for us.” Renyel Pinto (4-1) pitched 1 1-3 scoreless innings to earn his first win since June 30 at Washington, a span of 40 appearances. The Braves put runners on first and third with two out in the seventh but Pinto got Yunel Escobar to hit a harmless comebacker to end the inning. Brendan Donnelly pitched a scoreless eighth, and Leo Nunez closed it out for his 25th save in 32 chances.

“They have the kind of lineup that can do damage at any time,” Florida manager Fredi Gonzalez said. “Our bullpen did a nice job.” Dan Uggla hit his 31st homer for the Marlins, who finished with 11 hits. Johnson, who missed his previous start Sunday against the New York Mets with the flu, gave up one run and three hits in five innings. “Early on, I had command of all my pitches,” Johnson said. “In the third inning, I got a little erratic, AP Photo/The Atlanta Journal & Constitution,Curtis Compton but I made good pitches when I needed to.

Henderson gets grief, praise from UNC-led Bobcats

shooting guard he’s playing behind, did a decade ago. “I had Raja Bell and he couldn’t hit the floor three out of five times when I was coaching,” Brown said of his first stint with a young Bell in Philadelphia from 2000-02. “Then when we made the trade for him (in December), I looked it up, he was the leading 3-point shooter in the NBA. “He worked at it and became a great 3-point shooter. I think Gerald is a lot like Raja and lot further along than Raja was when Raja was a rookie.” The athleticism of the son of former NBA player

Gerald Henderson Sr. is what jumped out at his new teammates. Henderson came to Charlotte several weeks before camp, showing in pickup games a quick first step and ability to get to the rim. It’s part of the reason Brown wants the Bobcats to play at a faster pace than last season, when they were the NBA’s lowest-scoring team. “That’s one of my strengths. I should be able to beat my guy and get to the rim and make a play, whether it be scoring or getting fouled,” Henderson said. “It’s something that I focus on and can bring to this team.” To play for Brown you also have to defend, too, something Henderson was known for in college as he rose from an unspectacular freshman to Duke’s leading scorer at 16.5 points a game last season. “I remember watching him with Coach K. His freshman year you didn’t even know he was out there,” Brown said. “Then all of a sudden last year he was the go-to guy.” Henderson will likely come off the bench this season, fighting for minutes with Bell and Ronald “Flip” Murray and learning as much as he can from Brown and Jordan — even if he has to take some grief with it. “He jokes around but at the same time he acts as kind of a coach,” Henderson said of Jordan. “He’s giving tips and telling us about different stuff all the time. It’s good to have him around as kind of a mentor for us.”

play from the start in the first set, building a 20-5 lead before the young Crusaders cut the advantage to 20-9. The interim coach Salinas now has three games under her belt after taking over for Keesha Via. “We’ve still been in

transition the last week or so,” said Salinas. “So, I’ve just been encouraging them to be aggressive and intense whether it’s a conference game or not.” Crossroads continues conference play with a home tilt against Community Christian on Friday.


CHARLOTTE — Gerald Henderson was about to attempt a 3-pointer near the end of his first NBA practice Tuesday when Michael Jordan pounced. It was difficult to make out exactly what the Charlotte Bobcats managing partner said, but it had something to do with Henderson being too far from the basket. “He was joking with me about my 3-pointer,” Henderson said. “But I can expect that from him.” Welcome to Tar Heelland, Duke rookie. From Jordan, to coach Larry Brown, to assistant coaches and point guard Raymond Felton, Henderson’s college shade of blue is a little too dark for these parts. But it didn’t stop this North Carolinadominated franchise from snagging the shooting guard with the 12th pick in June’s NBA draft. Now Henderson is expected to make the Bobcats a better defensive team, more athletic, and even maybe hit a shot or two — while serving as an easy target for being on the other side of college basketball’s fiercest rivalry. “Yeah, it does get old,” Henderson said. “I’ve got to hear it every day.” The 6-foot-5 Henderson has made a good first impression on the floor, and Brown praised for being “well-coached” by Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski. “And going against Stevie Graham and Raja (Bell) and Raymond (Felton) every day is going to be the greatest gift he could have,” Brown said.

Charlotte’s Gerald Henderson waits for a pass during training camp in Charlotte Tuesday. “I think he’s really going to be fine.” Brown made it clear his well-known deficiency — 3-point shooting — isn’t a concern for now. Henderson shot just 33 percent in three seasons behind the shorter college arc at Duke. He shot 38 percent from the field in NBA summer league play and was inconsistent from 3-point range Tuesday as the Bobcats opened training camp. But Brown wants Henderson to attack the basket and defend hard in games and work on his shot when he can. He’s confident he’ll develop a consistent jumper, just as Bell, the

COLTS SWEEP, from page 1B ger Colts quickly seized control, using a sevenpoint rally to put the set out of reach at 18-5. Davis and Deal combined for 18 aces on the match. “She definitely is one of the strongest players,” Salinas said of Davis. “If she gets a really good

set, most likely she can set Britney (Anderson) up for the kill. Morgan is always intense. She’s one of the leaders of the team.” Mary Wilson added five kills for the Colts and Anderson chipped in with five aces. Crossroads dominated

RAIDERS WIN, from page 1B two big Shauna Terry kills and tied it at 13. With the score knotted up at 20, Terry came up big again for the Raiders. She scored three points off of two kills and a block to give Southern the 23-21 advantage, forcing Hoyle to call a time out. It was to no avail, as Southern reeled off the next two points to claim the set 25-21. Set two was competitive throughout, and the score was tied 17 times. With it even at 15, Southern scored three straight to take their biggest lead of the set. Robin Butler’s kill for the Vikings tied it at 23, but they couldn’t take the lead. Southern took the next two points to win the second set 25-23. “I could kind of see a little air let out on the other side, and we fed off of that,” said Turner. “It’s good to know that your team can do that.” Southern opened the third set with another run, and seemed poised to take the set and the match. They led 8-4 before the Vikings rallied to tie it at 9. A big block from Ciarea Thompson gave Northern the lead on the next point.

Hoyle said he felt his team had the momentum swinging their way in that final set until the final Raider run. “You take that over to the fourth, and you’re playing at home, and good things could happen. I hate that it ended the way it did,” he said. “You can’t take anything away from Southern

Vance. They were aggressive and they went out for the win.” Hoyle said he thought his team played under a “lot of pressure.” “Rather than continue to play our game and continue to do the things that got us to that point in the match, it seemed to me that we were playing to the pressure. And I hate that, I really hate that because there’s no reason we shouldn’t have pushed through and finished that

game off.” Turner said she felt her team did a good job of hitting and defending the net. “Northern does a great job of covering the floor, and we know the ball’s coming back. So the whole thing is to be ready — and I think they were ready for it when it came back,” she said. Northern plays host to Orange Thursday. The Vikings lost in a five-setter to the Panthers the first time they played in Hillsborough. Turner’s squad will host J.F. Webb on Thursday. The Raiders swept the Warriors in Oxford the first time around, but Turner isn’t sure it will be so easy the next time. “We’ve got to step up.

Carolina quarterback Jake Delhomme passes out of the pocket as offensive tackle Travelle Wharton helps against the pressure in the second half of Monday’s loss to Dallas.

Panthers get week off, time to consider 0-3 start By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTE — Julius Peppers was invisible. Steve Smith made a costly error. Jon Beason lost his cool. DeAngelo Williams inexplicably rarely got the ball. And Jake Delhomme kept turning it over. There are no shortage of reasons why the Carolina Panthers dropped to 0-3 Monday night with a 21-7 loss to Dallas. It doesn’t make their fall from NFC South champions to a team in disarray any less jarring. Now with a bye this weekend, the Panthers get nearly two weeks to think about their predicament, too. “At least we can’t lose,” tackle Jordan Gross said. With a turnover-machine offense that has abandoned the run and a poor-tackling, bangedup defense that’s become an opposing running back’s dream, the Panthers may need at least two weeks to fix what’s wrong. Trouble is, it may already be too late. Since 1990, only three teams started 0-3 and made the playoffs. It’s why Beason last week called the Cowboys game a “must-win.” The middle linebacker was so agitated Monday he drew a 15-yard penalty for a late hit in the first half. Beason’s frustration only grew in the second half, as the Cowboys finished with 212 yards rushing despite being without Marion Barber. “That is unacceptable,” linebacker Thomas Davis said. “We feel like we want to be an elite defense in this league. And we can’t go out on any given night and give up 200 yards rushing to anybody.” The Panthers played their third straight game without starting strong safety Chris Harris (knee) and have a hole at defensive tackle with Maake Kemoeatu (Achilles’ tendon) out for the year. It didn’t help that Peppers was a nonfactor again, collecting only two tackles and causing no trouble for quarterback Tony Romo. Making more than $1 million a game, the defensive end has managed four tackles and no sacks in the past two games. Still, Carolina had a chance. The Panthers took over at their own 10 midway through the fourth quarter trailing 13-7. Williams’ 11-yard run —one of his only 11 carries — gave Carolina its initial first down of the second half with 5:45 left. Then Delhomme dropped back to throw a slant pass to Smith. They’ve been together

for seven years, but Smith broke off the route instead of stepping in front of cornerback Terence Newman. Easy interception, and 27 yards later Newman was celebrating the clinching touchdown. “I got caught trying to alter my route in a way that put Jake in a bad light and put Jake in a bad situation,” Smith said. “That falls on me completely, 100 percent. I second-guessed my route and I shouldn’t have. The bottom line is that I screwed Jake.” Delhomme then lost a fumble before it was over, giving him a hardto-believe 12 interceptions and three lost fumbles in his last 15 quarter dating to January’s playoff meltdown against Arizona. His quarterback rating this season is 54.3, with only Oakland’s JaMarcus Russell (39.8) worse among starters. “I’m ready to play another game right now,” Delhomme said in the locker room in Dallas. With only untested Matt Moore and journeyman A.J. Feeley behind him, Delhomme may keep his job. Delhomme’s cause would be helped if they got back to their running game. No teammates rushed for more yards last season than Williams and Jonathan Stewart. But through three weeks their numbers — and carries — are way off. Williams has rushed only 41 times for 180 yards. Stewart has 23 carries for 99 yards. Even though the Panthers had a manageable deficit of three or six points for much of the second half Monday, the Panthers threw 17 times, had six running plays and failed to score. While the Panthers were hurt without blocking fullback Brad Hoover (back), the offensive line was supposed to be their strength. Instead, Carolina has scored 37 points in three games. “We’re just not playing the way our philosophy is — to run the ball,” Gross said. “The time of possession is ridiculous, I’m sure, and we get turnovers and some protection issues. That’s not what we did to win last year.” The Panthers look nothing like the team that went 12-4 last season. Counting the playoff blowout, the 0-4 preseason and the ugly start, it’ll be 286 days since Carolina last won when it next plays Oct. 11 against Washington. “I think everyone needs to get away from the pressure, get away from being interviewed for a couple of days,” Gross said. “We have good players and good talent. ... I’m shaking my head at it.”

Pondexter’s late scores give Mercury OT victory By BOB BAUM AP Sports Writer

PHOENIX — Cappie Pondexter missed a game-winning tip-in at the fourth-quarter buzzer then scored seven of her 23 points in overtime to help the Phoenix Mercury escape with a 120-116 victory over the Indiana Fever on Tuesday night in a wild opener of the WNBA finals. The Phoenix point guard, frustrated and in foul trouble in the first half, scored the final five points in the highestscoring game in WNBA history. Penny Taylor added 23 points and newly crowned league MVP Diana Taurasi had 22 for the Mercury, in search of their second title in three years. Game 2 is Thursday night in Phoenix. Katie Douglas tied it with a 3-pointer for

Indiana with 7.1 seconds left in regulation, then scored eight in overtime for a career playoff high 30 points. Ebony Hoffman had a career-high 27 on 12 of 14 shooting as the Fever set a franchise scoring record in just the second 100-point game in the club’s history. Before this one, the league’s highest-scoring game was Phoenix’s 111110 victory over Houston in triple overtime in a regular-season contest on Aug. 10, 2006. The Mercury and Fever each scored more points than any team previously in league history. The old mark was 115, of course by Phoenix, in an overtime victory over Sacramento on June 13. Indiana’s Tamika Catchings had just eight points before fouling out with 2:42 left in overtime but harassed Taurasi into

a 5-of-17 shooting night. DeWanna Bonner’s two free throws put Phoenix ahead 105-102 with 14.2 seconds left in regulation, then after a timeout, the Fever got the ball to the open Douglas, who sank the 3 that tied it. The Mercury pushed downcourt, where Bonner missed a driving layup, but Pondexter went up for the uncontested tip-in. Her shot bounced off the rim to send the game into overtime. After trailing most of the second half by as many as eight points, the Mercury used a 9-0 spurt to take the lead late in the fourth quarter. Taurasi sank a 3 pointer, made one of two free throws, then had an assist on Temeka Johnson’s 3 that put the Mercury ahead 102-98 with 2 1/2 minutes to play in regulation. The other basket in the run was a driving

bank shot by Taylor that tied it at 98. The unintimidated Fever, who had won three straight in Phoenix, came back. Catchings made two free throws, then rookie Briann January, who played at nearby Arizona State, made a layup to tie it at 102 with 47.8 seconds left. Taylor was fouled and made one of two free throws with 27.9 seconds remaining to give Phoenix a 103-102 lead. The lead changed hands six times in overtime. Douglas’ 15-footer gave Indiana its final lead at 116-115 with 1:40 left. Pondexter scored on a drive to put the Mercury ahead 117-116 with 1:27 to go, then sank a 16-footer with 20.2 seconds to go to make it 119-116. She finally finished off the Fever by making one of two free throws with 3 seconds to play.

Toronto’s Adam Lind runs to first after his solo home run in the seventh inning of Tuesday’s game against Boston.

Lind hits three homers in Jays’ win over Boston Blue Jays 8, Red Sox 7 BOSTON (AP) — Adam Lind hit three of Toronto’s six homers to lead the Blue Jays to an 8-7 victory over the Red Sox and spoil Boston’s hopes of clinching a playoff berth for the second consecutive night. It was the fifth straight loss for the Red Sox, who would clinch the AL wildcard berth with their next win or the next Texas loss. The Rangers played at the Los Angeles Angels later Tuesday night. Ricky Romero (13-9) allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk, striking out three in five innings to beat Boston for the first time in five tries this season. The Red Sox scored five times with two outs in the eighth inning to cut a six-run deficit to 8-7, but Jason Frasor got the last four outs for his 11th save. Clay Buchholz (7-4) allowed seven runs on eight hits — five of them homers — while walking one and striking out four in five innings. Game 1 - Twins 3, Tigers 2 Game 2 - Tigers 6, Twins 5 DETROIT (AP) — Justin Verlander kept the Tigers on top in the AL Central, pitching eight innings in a win over the Twins that salvaged a split of their critical doubleheader. Detroit restored twogame division lead over Minnesota, which won the day game 3-2 in 10 innings, with two games left in the series and five to go in the regular season. Verlander (18-9) gave up four runs and eight hits. Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth for his 36th save in 37 chances, overcoming some shaky defense that allowed Minnesota to pull within a run. Brian Duensing (5-2) gave up five runs over 4 2-3 innings for the Twins, who had a chance to at least tie the game in the eighth and ninth. Delmon Young started the Minnesota ninth with an infield single. Rodney retired the next two batters and Nick Punto followed with a fly ball to center that Curtis Granderson misjudged, allowing it to go over his head and helping the Twins pull within a run. Rodney then got Denard Span to hit a game-ending fly to left. Orlando Cabrera hit a go-ahead single in the 10th inning of the opener, leading Minnesota to the win. Brandon Lyon (6-5) helped the Twins by throwing consecutive

Rays 3, Orioles 1 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Rookie Wade Davis allowed one run over seven innings, Carl Crawford stole his career-high 60th base and Tampa Bay handed Baltimore its 12th straight loss. The Orioles’ slide is the longest in the majors this season. Tampa Bay (Sept. 3-13) and Cleveland (Sept. 13-24) both had 11-game skids. It is Baltimore’s longest slump since dropping 12 in a row Aug. 16-28, 2004. The Orioles (60-97) are a season-worst 37 games under .500. Davis (2-1) gave up seven hits, with six coming in the first three innings. The righthander retired his last 11 batters. Ben Zobrist had a run-scoring double during a two-run first for the Rays, who are 9-5 after an 11-games losing streak. Baltimore’s Jeremy Guthrie (10-17) allowed three runs and seven hits over seven innings. Yankees 4, Royals 3 NEW YORK (AP) — A.J. Burnett pitched well in an encouraging playoff tuneup and the Yankees rallied for two runs in the ninth inning to get their seventh straight victory. Little-used Juan Miranda got the gamewinning hit off ex-Yankee Kyle Farnsworth (1-5), an infield single that caromed off the reliever’s leg and into foul territory between home plate and first base. Miranda raised his arms in jubilation as he crossed the bag and the AL East champions rushed out of the dugout to celebrate as if they’d just won a playoff series. Brian Bruney (5-0) pitched 1 1-3 scoreless innings to get the win.

Spendthrifts: Beans keep kids fed and full, for less By JIM ROMANOFF For The Associated Press

As food budgets tighten, the cliche about teenagers eating you out of house and home loses some of its charm. One way to slow the flow from both refrigerator and wallet is to prepare foods that are inexpensive, appeal to children and teens and, most importantly, are healthy and filling. This cheesy corn tortilla and mixed bean lasagna will appeal to all ages, and can be prepared for less than $1.30 per serving. The dish is loaded with

protein-rich beans, which are filling. It’s also easy to make and reheats well. Which means you can have go-to grub next time a horde of ravenous teens descends on your home.

Corn tortilla and mixed-bean lasagna Start to finish: 1 hour 5 minutes (30 minutes active) Servings: 8 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil 2 medium yellow onions, chopped (2 cups) 2 medium bell peppers, cored and chopped 2 tablespoons minced garlic

15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained 15-ounce can pinto beans, rinsed and drained 14-ounce can diced tomatoes (with juice) 4-ounce can mild or hot chopped green chilies 1 tablespoon chili powder 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1 teaspoon salt 12 white corn tortillas 2 cups grated reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese Heat the oven to 350 F. In a large saucepan over medium, heat the oil. Add the onions, bell peppers and garlic.

Saute until the vegetables are soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in both beans, the tomatoes, chilies, chili powder, cumin and salt. Remove from the heat and set aside. In a 9-by-13-inch baking dish (or other 3-quart shallow baking dish) spread 1/2 cup of bean mixture. Arrange 6 of the tortillas over the bean mixture, overlapping them slightly and having them come about 1 inch up the sides of the dish. Spread half of the remaining bean mixture over the tortillas. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese, then arrange the remaining 6 tortillas on top.

Cover with the remaining bean mixture. Coat one side of a piece of foil with cooking spray, then tightly cover the dish. Bake until the lasagna is bubbling and heated through, about 30 minutes. Uncover and top with the remaining cheese. Bake for 5 minutes more, or until the cheeses is melted.

Good Taste

Wednesday, September 30, 2009




lthough an exotic international vacation may not be in your family’s plans, you don’t need a passport to experience some of the best flavors from around the world! A few key ingredients and a bit of experimentation in the kitchen can add intercontinental flair to your next meal. Here are some suggestions for taking your taste buds on a tour of the world in three easy meals. The secret ingredient in all three recipes? Veggie burgers — an under-utilized yet better-for-you alternative to meat.

Bring some south-of-the-border flavor to your table with this Chile Relleno recipe. Made with Black Bean Chipotle veggie burgers, poblano chile peppers, black beans and queso fresco — a staple in many Mexican dishes — the Chile Rellenos are sure to have your family saying, “Olé.”

The Veggie Wontons will allow you and your family to experience the Orient without leaving the house! They combine veggies such as carrots and crimini mushrooms with authentic Asian ingredients like ginger root, rice wine vinegar and soy sauce.

Although stroganoff is a traditional Russian dish, East meets West on one plate in this Miso Stroganoff recipe. The signature noodles remain, but this dish contains portabella veggie burgers and miso paste for a bit of Asian flair.

New books for families who want to share their love of food By MICHELE KAYAL For The Associated Press

What could be more embarrassing than admitting your kid doesn’t like sushi? Or will only eat food that’s white? If previous generations encouraged their progeny to become doctors or lawyers or president, today’s parents want their kids to be “foodies.” A new group of books offers advice and recipes for cultivating a genuine love of good food — not hiding the broccoli in the brownies. Though the books vary from almost scholarly to just a tad goofy, all take the same approach to combating the chicken fingersand-pizza kid menu: Express your love of food to your kids. Don’t feed them separate meals. Expose them to new tastes and culinary experiences as often as possible. And for goodness’ sake, eat together.

• “My Two-Year-Old Eats Octopus: Raising Children Who Love to Eat Everything” by Nancy Tringali Piho (Bull Publishing, 2009) It’s a lot to read on the subject — more than 300 pages — but if you’re bent on raising a gourmet this is your Dr. Spock. Author Nancy Tringali Piho isn’t interested in getting your kids to eat spinach. Rather, this almost scholarly tome seeks to create well-rounded eaters who are open to the tastes and cultural experiences that food offers. Intelligent discussion on issues — including how to enjoy your children’s company at the table and how to address the food peer pressure imposed by children’s friends — guides parents in communicating the meaning and value of good food. • “Too Many Cooks: Kitchen Adventures with 1 Mom, 4 Kids, and 102 Recipes” by Emily Franklin (Voice, 2009)

This delightfully written memoir puts into practice what “Octopus” preaches. Novelist and former professional chef Emily Franklin chronicles her yearlong mission to introduce her four children to exotic foods from purple potatoes to curried goat. Includes more than 100 recipes that were tested on her own kids. • •• If your life leaves little time for reading, cut straight to the chase with several cookbooks aimed at pleasing prepubescent palates. • “The Gastrokid Cookbook: Feeding a Foodie Family in a FastFood World” by Hugh Garvey and Matthew Yeomans (Wiley, 2009) More than 70 “kid-tested, adult-friendly” recipes fill this book born from the authors’ disdain for children’s menus. A smattering of general advice — don’t “balkanize” your children by feeding them separate meals, be satisfied when they try something new even if they

don’t like it — precedes appealing recipes like Roasted Chickpea Bruschetta and Parmesan Chicken Cutlets. While these will take you less than 30 minutes, other recipes, such as Orange and Ginger Soy Pork Ribs, will take several hours. Though the authors sometimes appear too focused on reprising recipes from trendy New York restaurants, they offer quick ways to doctor pantry staples, such as adding spinach or truffle oil to a box of organic macaroni and cheese. • “Paula Deen’s Cookbook for the Lunch-Box Set” by Paula Deen (Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2009) Once your kids are interested in food, they might also be interested in cooking it. “Paula Deen’s Cookbook for the Lunch-Box Set” offers more than 60 kid-doable recipes for sleepovers, bake sales and, of course, the lunch box. Aimed at ages 7 through about 13, the book

promotes cooking with family and friends. A pictorial guide to tools and ingredients makes the book fun and kid-friendly. • “Friday Night Bites: Kick Off the Weekend with Recipes and Crafts for the Whole Family” by Karen Berman (Running Press, 2009) The idea of cooking dinner and supervising a craft activity at the same time is enough to make the sturdiest parent break out in a cold sweat. But this book’s intentions are pure: designate a night to do something special as a family. Some of the themed events like Dinner on the Moon, in which participants create a centerpiece that shows the phases of the moon and eat Distant Star Salad (which includes the sure-to-need-coaxing starfruit) and receive a short astronomy lesson seem frighteningly ambitious. But others, such as the Silly Hat Night and Backward Night, could actually happen in most households.

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


(Answers tomorrow) TEPID FAUCET CARBON Jumbles: QUEUE Answer: What she bought for her boyfriend — A “BEAU” TIE


Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re not sure you’re doing the right thing, but as long as no one is correcting you, move ahead. Hesitation will cause a loss. Go forward with confidence and you’ll figure things out eventually. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be in an effusive mood, which is as lucky for those around you as it is for you. Your warm and specific compliments go straight to the heart of the one you love. A Leo connection is highlighted. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Stay open to the possibilities. Someone who is not your type will hold a peculiar fascination for you. You might not hit it off immediately, but over time, this person will grow on you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). A group that is not working well together needs your leadership. How can you get everyone on the same page? First, find out what “page” each person is on now. Converse and investigate. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be learning, or at least trying to learn. There could be some frustration around your education. It’s probably not your fault. If one teaching method isn’t working for you, seek another one. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When you don’t feel like working, you’ll have to trick yourself into making the effort. Here’s a hint: You respond to hip locations and attractive people. If possible, take your business on the road and find a “cool” place to settle in.






Answer here:



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



LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You will be moved to make a generous move. Considerer first whether this act is really fair to everyone involved, especially you. Act responsibly, but don’t be a scapegoat for anything you’re not really to blame for. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When it comes to attracting romantic attention, you’re a master. You’re not obvious in your approach, preferring to keep your inner sizzle on the down low. Someone is intrigued by the subtle mystery you build. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Like a cook who understands the importance of prep time, you take care in setting up each key ingredient the right way. Then when it’s time to make the grand presentation, move with the lightning speed of a pro. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A watched pot never boils, and when you’re waiting on a call, the cell phone doesn’t vibrate either. Get out and have some fun. Only then will all of your expectations be fulfilled. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have much to offer the world today, so seek those who are likely to appreciate the bounty you’re about to bestow. Avoid those who reek of “high maintenance” at all costs. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). No matter how you feel when you wake up, you’re likely to decide to bring a spirited exuberance to all you endeavor. It’s not a stretch to say that by the end of the day, you’ll be dancing.
