Oxford mayor candidates ask for votes By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer

OXFORD — Residents saw not a two but a three-candidate field for mayor at a pre-election forum for municipal candidates. With departing City Commissioner Steve Powell having decided hours earlier Thursday to declare himself a write-in candidate for the top position, voters will now be choosing between him, Mayor Al Woodlief and two-time challenger Frank Strickland. The public got the chance to hear the trio at an evening gathering held at the Public Works Complex and sponsored by the

And I can assure you that I have and will continue to work hard to deliver the quality of life that Oxford citizens deserve,” Woodlief said. And Woodlief said, “When citizens interact with city representatives, they must feel that they have been treated fairly and in a timely manner.” Additionally, Woodlief said OxPlease see MAYOR, page 4A

Bible verses banned from Ga. school football field banners By DORIE TURNER Associated Press Writer

FORT OGLETHORPE, Ga. — When the Warriors of Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High take the field Friday night, the football team won’t be running through the cheerleaders’ usual banner bearing a Today Bible verse. The school district Cloudy banned the banners last High: 80 week over concerns they Low: 49 were unconstitutional and could provoke a lawsuit, angering many in the deepSunday ly religious north Georgia town of Fort Oglethorpe. Sunny “I’m just kind of unHigh: 80 nerved about it,” said Low: 53 18-year-old Cassandra Cooksey, a recent graduDetails, 3A ate who often prayed with her fellow marching band members before football games. “It seems like the majority of people in our Emporia, Va. community want this and James E.

the signs if they want to.” The move has galvanized the community. Hundreds of people attended a rally this week supporting the signs, which included messages such as: “Commit to the Lord, whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.” Many students attended class Friday wearing shirts with Bible verses and painted their cars with messages that read: “Warriors for Christ.” “When you get a whole bunch of teenagers mad, this is what happens. We stand up for what believe in,” 16-year-old Shelby Rouse said over the roar of a pre-game pep rally. The 900-student school began running through the Biblical banners shortly after the Sept. 11 terror attacks, and school Principal Jerry Ransom said he enthusiastically supported it then. But Catoosa County schools Superintendent Denia Reese banned the practice after a parent

complained. Reese said the school board’s attorney advised her the signs violated federal law because they were being displayed by the cheerleaders during a school-sponsored event. “I regret that the cheerleaders cannot display their signs in the football stadium without violating the First Amendment,” Reese said in a statement. “I rely on reading the Bible daily, and I would never deny our students the opportunity to express their religious beliefs.” The Anti-Defamation League, a human rights group, sent a letter to Reese commending the ban. “There are legal ways for students to have religious observation in a school context and there are illegal ways, and we believe Reese is correct that the football game crosses a line,” said Bill Nigut, the group’s southeast regional director.

OXFORD — Ten of the 13 candidates seeking election to four City Commission positions participated in an extensive preelection forum in which residents got a first-time chance to see who they will be considering in the Nov. 3 election. Oxford’s electorate will have to decide who should replace departing incumbents Paul Kiesow, Steve Powell, Bob Shope and Chance Wilkinson. Oxford’s seven-member commission serves staggered four-year terms. The forum, held Thursday evening at the Public Works Complex, was sponsored by the Granville County Chamber of Commerce and the County Human Relations Committee. Here is a summary what of the attending candidates, in alphabetical

order, had to say: • Jim Branch, who is retired from sales and marketing in the foundry and automotive industry, said, “I think we need a good dose of common sense and we need fiscal responsibility.” Branch said he believes Oxford needs openness in government and to solicit the input of all citizens. “And our obligation is to listen with an open mind and to be open to change and to pursue change where necessary,” Branch added. • Ron Bullock is retired from working two decades for Burlington Industries and is presently a parttime instructor for VanceGranville Community College. “I enjoy being a part of looking at the issues and dealing with them and addressing them,” Bullock said.

N.C. applies for $5 billion for high-speed rail

RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina has applied to the Obituaries, 4A federal government for more than $5 billion to improve rail service between Charlotte and Washington. Gov. Beverly Perdue announced Friday state officials had applied for the second round of federal stimulus

funds for high-speed rail projects. The recovery law had $8 billion in competitive highspeed rail grants nationwide. State rail division director Pat Simmons says North Carolina’s application includes a joint plan with Virginia to improve the cor-

ridor between Charlotte and Richmond, Va. Simmon says the application also seeks money to add second tracks between Raleigh and Charlotte to increase rail traffic volume and to provide a more direct northbound route out of Raleigh to Virginia.

4-H – looking back, moving forward This year marks the centennial of North Carolina 4-H. For 100 years, 4-H programs have been helping youth from Murphy to Manteo learn life skills through hands-on, age-appropriate learning activities. The 4-H motto, “To Make the Best Better,” has been the driving force behind 4-H programs that have changed the lives of thousands of youth in North Carolina Pam for the better. In Jones fact, 4-H Cooperative is still the Extension largest youth organization in North Carolina and the nation. In 2008, 204,419 youth participated in North Carolina 4-H programs. Over half of those youth live in small towns, a notable change from the roots of 4-H, which were farm and rural-based. Vance County 4-H also has a rich history. Many of the adults I encounter around the county today were active in community 4-H clubs, made presentations at District Activity Days, attended week-long sessions of N.C. 4-H Congress each July at N.C. State University, and won awards at the local, district, state and even national levels. These successful businessmen and women often share how life skills learned in 4-H

shaped them as youth and led them to the success they enjoy today. One of those successful 4-Hers whose list of 4-H achievements is quite lengthy was inducted into the inaugural class of the N.C. 4-H Hall of Fame. This honor was bestowed on Jean Jackson, Ph.D., vice president for college programs at Meredith College, at the 2009 N.C. 4-H Congress in Raleigh in July. As a 4-H member herself, Jackson worked with Vance County 4-H agent Carolyn Stanley to start a new 4-H club in Kittrell. From shepherding new 4-Hers to shepherding college students, Jackson is a perfect example of how current success was built upon the skills learned in 4-H as a youth. So what’s going on in Vance County 4-H presently? Is 4-H still a relevant youth program? Why, yes! In 2009, four new 4-H club leaders have received training to begin four new 4-H clubs. These are the first new clubs to be started in Vance County in a number of years. School enrichment efforts were started in two Vance County schools using 4-H curriculum and trained volunteers. Teachers and students were thrilled with the results. Summer camp numbers rose for the third year. Numbers of youth participating in 4-H special interest programs also increased. Youth aged 5-18 years participated in programs offered by Vance County 4-H as varied

Senior center to start Wii Games Day on Wednesday The Vance County Senior Center will begin Wii Games Day on Wednesday. The Wii Sports and the Wii Fitness games were donated to the senior center.

continue every Wednesday from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. Anyone 50 years old or more is invited to come out and have fun and get in plenty of exercise at the same time. The senior center is located at 126 S. Garnett Street. Please call (252) 430-0257 for more information.

as beginner carving and sewing classes, livestock workshops, workshops designed to teach youth how to make healthier choices with food and exercise, and guitar and tennis lessons, to name just a few. In all these programs, the underlying goal was to teach youth life skills using hands-on activities while expanding their knowledge in new areas of interest. National 4-H week is this coming week, Oct. 4-10. Celebrate with Vance County 4-H as we observe National 4-H Youth Science Day on Oct. 7. Fourth through eighth grade students are invited to be-

come scientific researchers for a day to explore how biofuels may be an answer to our future energy needs. To register your child, please come by the Vance County Cooperative Extension Office at 305 Young St. in Henderson on Monday. You can also become a Vance County 4-H Centennial donor by making a tax deductible donation to support Vance County 4-H programs.

Tips from the Vance Co. Parenting Task Force Breast milk is protective! Breast milk contains antibodies that help protect babies from some sicknesses during their lifetimes. Any cold/flu, virus or immunization that mom has had causes her to produce antibodies to fight those diseases off. Mom’s breast milk contains antibodies that are passed on to the baby, which decreases the baby’s chances of getting that cold, etc. We strongly


encourage moms to make the best choice possible for their baby. Breast feeding allows mom to pass on a protection for her baby that can last a lifetime. By Jacqueline Ross, RN Maria Parham Medical Center

“I’ve have some good experience with planning and budgeting and management skills and those kind of things,” Bullock added. • Alice Currin, who had been a commissioner before being defeated in the 2005 election, quipped about her age — she is 81 — being publicized in the Dispatch despite her belief this should not be public. Currin, a member of the Planning Board and the Zoning Board of Adjustment, said, “Don’t hold it against me because I’m old, because I can still do the job.” Currin in 2007 unsuccessfully sought election back to the commission. • Danny Currin, a businessman, cited his service to the city, which includes having been a volunteer firefighter from 1975-2001 and having served on the Planning Board since 2004. Currin said he believes Oxford has some excellent recreational facilities, “but I do not believe they are being used to their full potential to offer more children recreational opportunities.” And Currin said his next objective would be for Oxford to have a fire chief, noting the mid-January departure of Lanny Dillehay and noting the retirement of Assistant Fire Chief Butch Ball. Police Chief John Wolford is doubling as interim fire chief. • Calvin “C.J.” Harris Jr. is a mental health professional with the N.C.

Department of Health and Human Services in Butner. Noting a prior background as an educator, Harris said, “I am focused and I am ready to serve the citizens of Oxford.” Harris said he decided to seek election to the commission because politics is of great interest to him and added, “I feel that I could be a positive face on the board and I could add to what is already there.” And Harris added, “There’s no doubt that we do need some more recreational facilities for our children in Oxford.” • Sue Hinman directs Area Congregations in Ministry, a non-profit organization assisting the needy. “I do feel we do need to push forward in uniting this city in oneness of mind and purpose forward into a new era,” Hinman said. “It’s time to move out of 1960 and push forward into 2010.” That includes bringing Oxford back to being one of the state’s most prominent cities in terms of having quality education, Hinman said. • Bill Johnston, who is retired from the clergy and teaching, said he does not plan to change any existing programs or create any major new ones if he is elected. Johnston said his goal is that, regardless of whatever commission committee he would be in charge of if he is elected, the city employees would be deeply involved up to the final

Wicker drafted the city’s demolition by neglect ordinance, which gives the city the power to act against delinquent property owners in the College Street and Main Street historic districts. Wicker said that, if elected, he would like to focus on a couple of matters. “One is to consider what the development of Oxford should be. Development for development’s sake only is not a goal which the city should have,” Wicker said. And Wicker said that he would like to work with the Police Department on drug and gang prevention. “And where I think we should focus is not with the punishment aspect, but with looking at what the root cause is and trying to prevent that before it gets started,” Wicker said.

Powell said he did not believe the office of mayor had any real authority, but learned the position has the power of influence and the power to guide, motivate, inspire, unite and cross barriers. Oxford has a commission-manager form of government, with the mayor chairing commission meetings and casting tiebreaking votes. Powell said he would seek better relations with the county as well as the surrounding area. Powell said he would emphasize economic development, but in terms of making sure a person has marketable skills to get a job. While Powell, who doubles as the commission’s Recreation Committee Chairman, continued to emphasize a need to focus on youth, he also cited the need to focus on senior citizens. Powell, who is a teacher, went on to say he believes there needs to be a better relationship with the County Schools System, noting, “If we are in the business of people, then we are in the business of children.”

“It’s time to elect a mayor who cares about the people,” Strickland said. “A mayor is part of a team, but the mayor is the leader of the team. And we need someone with real leadership that looks out for all the people.” Additionally, Strickland cited the lack of a professional fire chief since Lanny Dillehay’s departure in mid-January. “And that, to me, is a very important issue in this election,” Strickland said. “And I will fight for that.” Police Chief John Wolford has been doubling as interim fire chief. The outcome of a $40,000 study of public safety at the request of City Manager Mark Donham has not yet been made public. Donham has said he would hold off a search to fill the fire chief position pending the outcome of the study, which was conducted by the International City/County Management Association. Strickland favored having a self study of public safety.

The Mini Dental Implant System calls for four of the 1.8 mm mini dental implants, which are about the size of wooden toothpicks, to be gently placed into the front of the patient’s lower jaw. It is a relatively painless procedure that Dr. Ghodrat can perform, usually only requiring a mild anesthesia. Your denture is then carefully adjusted by the dentist to allow it to snap onto the four mini implants. The result? A tight fitting, completely reliable system, that allows you to speak and eat with confidence. All performed in less than two hours, then you may go out and enjoy your favorite lunch.

U.S. jobless rate reaches 9.8 percent in September By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON — The unemployment rate rose to 9.8 percent in September, the highest since June 1983, as employers cut far more jobs than expected. The report shows that the worst recession since the 1930s is still inflicting widespread pain and underscores one of the biggest threats to the nascent economic recovery: that consumers, worried about job losses and stagnant wages, will restrain spending. Consumer spending accounts for about 70 percent of the nation’s economy. Most analysts expect the economy to continue to improve, but at a slow, uneven pace. Government stimulus efforts, such as the Cash for Clunkers auto rebates, likely boosted the economy in the July-September quarter, but economists worry that growth will slow once the impact of such programs fades. The Labor Department said Friday that the economy lost a net total of 263,000 jobs last month, from a downwardly revised 201,000 in August. That’s worse than Wall Street economists’ expectations of 180,000 job losses, according to a survey by Thomson Reuters. The unemployment rate rose from 9.7 percent in August, matching expectations. If laid-off workers who have settled for part-time work or have given up looking for new jobs are included, the unemployment rate rose to 17 percent, the highest on records dating from 1994. All told, 15.1 million Americans are now out of work, the department said. And 7.2 million jobs have been eliminated since the recession began in December 2007. The department said 571,000 of the unemployed dropped out of the work force last month, presumably out of frustration over the lack of jobs. That sent the participation rate, or the percentage of the population either working or looking for work, to a 23-year low. The unemployment rate would have topped 10 percent if the labor force hadn’t shrunk, Fabbri said. Older, laid-off workers are dropping out and requesting Social Security at a faster-than-expected pace, according to government officials. The Social Security Administration said earlier this week that applications for retirement

N.C. utility to switch plant from coal to gas RALEIGH (AP) — Progress Energy said it has won regulatory approval to replace a North Carolina coal-fired power plant with one that will burn natural gas to generate electricity. A spokesman for the Raleigh-based utility said Friday the North Carolina Utilities Commission advised the company of its decision to allow construction of generators that will use the cleaner-burning fuel. Spokesman Mike Hughes said Progress Energy will begin construction in early 2011 and shut down its coalfired Wayne County plant in about four years. The company filed for regulator approval of its plan to retire the H.F. Lee plant’s three coal-fired units less than two months ago after state legislators approved a streamlined review process in July.

benefits are 23 percent higher than last year, while disability claims have risen by about 20 percent. Meanwhile, the number of people out of work for six months or longer jumped to a record 5.4 million, and they now make up almost 36 percent of the unemployed — also a record. Persistent joblessness could pose political problems for President Barack Obama, who pushed through an ambitious $787 billion stimulus package in February intended to “save or create” 3.5 million jobs by the end of 2010. “We still think the overall trend is moving in the right direction,” said Christina Romer, chair of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers. “We’re going from much larger job losses earlier this year. They are moderating. We want them to moderate more.” Republicans note that job losses have continued despite the stimulus. “Wasteful government spending is not the solution to what ails this economy,” said Indiana Rep. Mike Pence, chairman of the House Republican caucus. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Thursday that even if the economy were to grow at a 3 percent pace in the coming quarters, it would not be enough to quickly drive down the unemployment rate. Bernanke said the rate is likely to remain above 9 percent through the end of 2010. Besides the sagging jobs market, other potential obstacles to a smooth recovery include wary consumers, the troubled commercial real estate market, and a tight lending environment for individuals and businesses, said Eric Rosengren, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. Hourly earnings rose by a penny last month, while weekly wages fell $1.54 to $616.11, according to the government data. The average hourly work week fell back to a record low of 33 in September. That figure is important

because economists are looking for companies to add more hours for current workers before they hire new ones. The uncertainty that surrounds the recovery has made employers reluctant to hire. The Business Roundtable, a group of CEOs from large corporations, said earlier this week that only 13 percent of its members expect to increase hiring over the next six months. While job losses have slowed since the first quarter of this year when they averaged 691,000 a month, the cuts actually worsened last month in many sectors compared with August. Construction jobs fell by 64,000, more than the 60,000 eliminated in August. And service sector companies cut 147,000 jobs, more than double the 69,000 in the previous month. Retailers lost 38,500 jobs, compared to less than 9,000 in August. Government jobs fell 53,000, the report said, with local governments cutting the most. One the bright side, temporary help agencies eliminated only 1,700 jobs, down from the previous month. Economists see temporary jobs as a leading indicator, as employers are likely to hire temp workers before permanent ones. Tig Gilliam, CEO of Adecco North America, a temporary job agency, said the industry likely will add jobs next month. According to a separate report Friday, U.S. factory orders fell in August by the largest amount in five months. The Commerce Department said demand for manufactured goods dropped 0.8 percent, much worse than the 0.7 percent gain that economists had expected. The August decline reflected plunging demand for commercial aircraft, a category that surged in July.

SOUTHPORT (AP) — Progress Energy Inc. has restarted two nuclear reactors at its southeast North Carolina plant that were shut down for 10 days as a precaution. Progress Energy spokesman Mike Hughes said the Brunswick Nuclear Plant began ramping up its electricity generation Thursday. The reactors were forced to shut down after one of four emergency diesel generators stopped last month and wouldn’t restart, Hughes said. Regulations require a shutdown if a problem with

a diesel generator can’t be fixed within seven days. The generators provide emergency power for plant operations. The Nuclear Regulatory

Daily Meditation O Lord God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee: Let my prayer come before thee: incline thine ear unto my cry; For my soul is full of troubles: and my life draweth nigh unto the grave. Psalm 88:1-3

Our Opinion

An Olympic disappointment Perhaps it isn’t a foreign policy defeat, but it’s a big setback nonetheless. President Barack Obama, Chicagoan and supposedly (even according to Republicans) the media darling both here and to the rest of the civilized world, ventured to Copenhagen, Denmark to make a pitch for his home city as host of the 2016 Olympics. And Chicago came in last. This despite the city’s perceived position as one of the leaders. Chicago bested no city from the “final four,” not even Tokyo, a location that nobody gave a chance. Some International Olympic Committee members blame Chicago’s poor finish on a “stupid bloc” of Asian voters who banded together in favor of Tokyo in Round 1, even though they had to know the city was almost certain not to win. At least, the reasoning goes, they eliminated someone else first. In the end, Rio de Janeiro overcame Madrid for the right to host the Games. The 2016 Summer Olympics will be the first ever held in South America. Obama was also criticized by some for the brevity of his appearance in Copenhagen, a visit that lasted only a few hours. The short stopover between other items of business for Obama might — at least one observer said — have seemed like a snub to some IOC members. Other leaders, such as the king of Spain, were on hand throughout the venue presentations and decision process. We don’t fault Obama for spending very little time on pitching Chicago’s Olympic bid. He has considerably more important responsibilities to handle. No, where we think Obama’s message fell flat was in his promise to make the hypothetical 2016 Chicago Olympics an opportunity, according to the Associated Press, to “reconnect the United States with the world after the presidency of George W. Bush.” Obama has gone to the “pin it on and apologize for Bush” well so many times that the rope from which the bucket dangled was already worn precariously thin. It had already hauled up a presidency for him. Trying to lug an entire Olympic Games in that bucket finally snapped the tether. Two points are worth making: 1. If the people of the world universally and desperately hate George W. Bush — and in some locales, they do — can we really expect a big track meet and athletic festival to make it all go away? 2. Maybe much of the world is letting go of George Bush faster than Obama and the Democrats are. After all, he’s no longer president; he can no longer make a single decision that impacts their countries and their futures. And by 2016, most people in the world — maybe even here, maybe even Democrats — will have relegated George W. Bush to some far-back corner of their minds. The Olympic bid put forth by Chicago and the United States had many positives. Tossing in a negative and trying to spin it as a positive was a mistake.

Quotable “I was worried for myself, I was worried for my family. I felt menaced by this, and I had to tell them all of the creepy things that I had done. The creepy stuff was that I have had sex with women who work for me on this show.” — David Letterman, describing to his “Late Show” audience how he admitted having affairs with female employees to a grand jury investigating allegations that Letterman was the victim of a $2 million blackmail plot.

RALEIGH — These days, it can be difficult for newspaper readers to tell the difference between the state news section, the gossip page, and the crime blotter. Many of the controversies and investigations surrounding former Gov. Mike Easley remain unresolved, with a new round of hearings by the State Board of Elections scheduled to commence in late October. Sen. R.C. Soles of Columbus County remains the subject of what is reportedly a wide-ranging probe of alleged criminal and personal wrongdoing. Rep. Ty Harrell of Wake County has just resigned from the legislature after authorities pointed to irregularities in his campaignfinance reports. And divisions within two state departments, Environment & Natural Resources and Transportation, are now under investigation for accepting pricey meals and other gifts from private vendors. Of course, these and other recent stories about official mistakes, lapses in judgment, or wrongdoing involve only a small fraction of North Carolina’s state employees and politicians. Are the state’s journalists asking the right questions? Are they pursuing front-page exposes and broadcast exclusives at the expense of covering more-important stories?

I know there’s a large chunk of the political class who thinks so. I think such critics are mistaken. Ensuring that government operates as openly, honestly, and fairly as possible is more than just a worthy cause. It’s an imperative. When John political insiders abuse Hood governmenSpecial to tal power The Daily Dispatch and waste taxpayer money, they don’t just commit a little boo-boo. They strike at the very heart of what makes free societies free, and what separates modern liberal democracies from the corrupt states that have dominated human life since the dawn of history. Douglass North, the famous economist and Nobel Laureate, has just published a new book with coauthors John Joseph Wallis and Barry Weingast entitled Violence and Social Orders. I’m about halfway through their comprehensive discussion of the history of governmental forms. It’s fascinating but complicated.

The relevant part for this discussion is how the authors distinguish between two mature forms of government: natural states and open-order states. Most human cultures and civilizations have produced and maintained natural states. Only in the past couple of centuries, beginning in Europe and America, did open-order states arise and prosper. Both kinds of states accomplish the primary function of government, according to Douglass and his colleagues: to restrain the use of violence in society. But the open-order state allows for the creation of far more wealth, health, and happiness. What’s the distinction? To put it simply, in natural states the offices and benefits of government are distributed by coalitions of ruling elites according to kinship, patronage, or tribal membership. Think ancient pharaohs, medieval kings, and modern sheikdoms and banana republics. In open-order states, the relationship between public officials and others is impersonal. No matter who you are, if you fall into the proper category you have the same experience as everyone else. If you have the same economic means as your neighbor, you pay the same tax — even if he knows the governor personally and you don’t. If you

apply for a permit to open a shop, no regulator will ask what political party you belong to or which politician you supported in the last election. In other words, while open-order states are hardly perfect, they are less corrupt and more efficient than natural states are, for pretty much the same reason. Political corruption is not, or is not only, a laughing matter. It is a serious impediment to social wellbeing and economic development. Even the appearance of impropriety, the perception that greasing the right palms or supporting the right politicians will get you contracts or tax breaks or special treatment, disrupts the ability of government to deliver the social order that is its chief object. Sure, there are other important stories to cover in North Carolina. But until significant progress is made against the entrenched political corruption in our state, the journalistic exclusives, legislative deliberations, regulatory probes, and criminal investigations should continue to compel our utmost attention. No matter what you think government should do, a corrupt government will never do it well. John Hood is president of the John Locke Foundation and publisher of

Letters to the Editor Kill water district To the editor:

Roman Polanski controversy shouldn’t be this controversial I am delighted by the Roman Polanski controversy. Don’t get me wrong: I am horrified and disgusted by what the acclaimed director did — and admitted to — but there is an upside. Just to recap, Polanski drugged a child put in his care for the purposes of a photo shoot. He tried to bully her into sex. She said no. He raped her anyway. He pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse but fled the country before sentencing, allegedly for fear the judge wouldn’t keep his end of the plea bargain. He spent the subsequent three decades living the life of a revered celebrity in Europe. He never returned to America because there was a warrant for his arrest. In a bit of ironic justice, he was apprehended en route to Zurich to receive a lifetime achievement award. That ceremony will apparently go on without him. So what do I like about the controversy? Well, for starters, that there is one at all. I think it is fascinating beyond words that this is open to “debate.” If Roman Polanksi was the name of the world’s greatest plumber or accountant, or even the director of “Weekend at Bernie’s II,” there would be no argument. Indeed, Polanski would have already paid his debt to society and would be a free man by now. No serious person can dispute this. Now of course, reasonable people can disagree about all sorts of stuff. What sort of punishment does Polanski deserve? If he’s sent back to the U.S., should the 76-year-old spend the rest of his life in jail? Does the fact that the understandably exhausted victim has forgiven him mitigate issues? How should we score allegations of judicial misconduct or the time

Polanski already served in jail? All of these things are open to good-faith disagreement. But there are also a few things, by my lights, no reasonable person can dispute. The first is that child rape is a very bad thing and no amount of blame-shifting to the 13-year-old Jonah or her mother Goldberg can absolve Polanski of Tribune Media his culpabilServices ity. Giving a grown woman a “roofie” and having sex with her is a crime. How on earth can plying a 13-year-old with champagne and a Quaalude be seen as less heinous? A second point beyond dispute is that whatever your crime, be it tax fraud or tearing the tags off your mattress, our system of justice cannot tolerate anyone pleading guilty only to buy time to flee the jurisdiction. Even if Polanski were wholly innocent of the charges, it would be necessary for us to seek extradition. That brings us to the even more refreshing aspect of this controversy: It is not a left-right issue. I’m not normally one to celebrate bipartisan unity, but it’s nice to know there are some things political or ideological opponents can agree on. Some of the most ardent and clear voices on the Polanski issue have been on the left. Go into a bar or union hall and ask whether fat-cat directors should get special treatment when they rape 13-year-old girls and you’ll discover that on this

issue, the differences between “blue America” and “red America” are vanishingly small. And yet, there is a controversy. Many of the international community’s leading lights are rallying to the Free Polanski movement. A petition is circulating with such names as Harvey Weinstein, Martin Scorsese and Woody Allen on it. (No surprise that Woody’s on board, given that he married his adopted daughter.) The arguments in Polanski’s defense range from lawyerly red herrings to intellectual piffle to horrendous affronts to human decency. Whoopi Goldberg (no relation) dismissed the allegations because she was sure whatever Polanski did, it didn’t amount to “rape rape.” It all boils down to the fact that Polanski is famous and talented and an Olympian artist, living above the world of mortals. Indeed, if he didn’t rape that girl — and he did — Polanski would still be considered a pig in most normal communities. This is the man who, after all, started dating Nastassja Kinski when she was only 15 and he was in his 40s. His taste for teenage girls is an established fact. His defenders don’t care. They are above and beyond bourgeois notions of morality, even legality. And that’s the main reason I am grateful for this controversy. It is a dye marker, “lighting up” a whole archipelago of morally wretched people. With their time, their money and their craft, these very people routinely lecture America about what is right and wrong. It’s good to know that at the most fundamental level, they have no idea what they’re talking about. You can write to Jonah Goldberg by e-mail at

The article about the water district (Page 1, Oct. 1) talks in millions of dollars and thousands of customers. Has anyone broken this down to the cost per household? I did: over $6,560 per house, plus (of course) the cost to the homeowner of laying pipe from the street to the house and connecting all the plumbing. Just because much of it will be done with grants and bond issues, don’t think it is free — you, the Vance County voter, will pay that entire price plus interest through your taxes and assessments. “There is no such thing as a free lunch.” I’ve often disagreed with my neighbors because I am not a rabid supporter of reducing every tax in sight. Taxes are the bills we pay for the services government renders. If the services aren’t worth the taxes paid, change the government. The water project passed narrowly in an election full of “errors.” It reminded me of the 2000 presidential election in South Florida. Please do not claim I exaggerate as I was a voter there in 2000 and a voter here for the recent election fiasco. I’m an eyewitness in both cases, and in both cases the elections were dishonest. In both cases, the information presented to the electorate by politicians was full of lies, halftruths, and innuendoes. Stop this foolishness NOW! The county council has spent way too much time and money being led around by the nose on this issue. They remind me of tethered bulls. I, for one, will contribute to the OPPONENT of any council member who has backed this foolish project and I urge my fellow citizens to do likewise — throw these incompetents out as soon as possible. And by the way, these same sentiments apply to the zoning fiasco. And to the lack of willpower that keeps county government from forcing our school board to provide decent education in this county. I’m certain other items can be added to this list. In short, the problems in Vance County and in Henderson were made by the voters not watching carefully and not throwing out those elected officials who favored unnecessary projects while neglecting our real needs. Kill the water district. Kill zoning. And kill the idea that council members are there to improve the resumes of County Officials. They are there to serve the people instead. H. Larry Elman, Dabney

On this date: In 1941, Adolf Hitler declared in a speech in Berlin that Russia had been “broken” and would “never rise again.” In 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt established the Office of Economic Stabilization. In 1951, the New York Giants captured the National League pennant as Bobby Thomson hit a three-run homer off the Brooklyn Dodgers’ Ralph Branca in the “shot heard ‘round the world.” In 1952, Britain conducted its first atomic test as it detonated a 25-kiloton device in the Monte Bello Islands off Australia. In 1988, Lebanese kidnappers released Indian educator Mithileshwar Singh, who’d been held captive with three Americans for more than 20 months. In 2002, five people were shot to death in the Washington, D.C., area within a 14-hour period, beginning the hunt for the “Beltway Sniper.” (In all, 10 people were killed; mastermind John Allen Muhammad and teenage accomplice Lee Boyd Malvo were later caught.)

One year ago: Thirteen years to the day after O.J. Simpson was acquitted of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman, the former football star was found guilty of robbing two sports-memorabilia dealers at gunpoint in a Las Vegas hotel room. (Simpson was later sentenced to nine to 33 years in prison.)

design and give us our rings as a wedding gift. They asked whether we wanted white or yellow gold, and we specified white or a combination of both — but not yellow by itself. Yellow gold is what my parents used to wear — and they had a terrible relationship and an even worse divorce. The rings arrived and they are beautiful, but they are yellow gold! I’m assuming something was lost in translation. I know a marriage isn’t about the rings, but I had my heart set on wearing ones unlike my parents’. I don’t think anything can be done at this point, and I don’t want to raise an objection about such a generous gift. Have you any words of wisdom to help me overcome my hang-ups and this silly feeling of disappointment? — FEELING SHALLOW IN SUNNY CALIFORNIA DEAR FEELING SHALLOW: Your parents had a rotten marriage, but their rings had nothing to do with it. We create our own symbols and attach meaning to them. Instead of allowing the gold rings to remind you of your parents’ unhappiness, why not let them serve as a reminder of what’s important in a marriage so you won’t make the same mistakes they did? And if that doesn’t work, consult a jeweler about having them plated. DEAR ABBY: Is it rude to put salt on your food before you have even tried it? My husband was terribly offended when I blurted out, “Try it before you season it!” — NADINE IN ONTARIO, CANADA DEAR NADINE: Yes, it is rude. And it’s interesting that your husband became so defensive, because usually it’s the person who cooked the dish who is offended. The polite thing to do is to first taste the item before deciding to correct the seasoning.



DEAR ABBY: I have been with my boyfriend, “Simon,” for a year and a half. He’s a good person, but my problem is I suffer from insomnia and have a hard time staying asleep. It is extremely frustrating — not to mention lonely — lying in the dark. I start to think about crazy things and it scares me. If it gets really bad I wake Simon up, but he doesn’t understand. He starts going off on me for waking him, to the point that I’m reduced to tears. Then he goes back to sleep. What should I do? This is a disorder that is going to be with me for some time. Simon Dear doesn’t seem Abby to care Universal Press despite my Syndicate numerous attempts to explain it to him. I know people hate being awakened from a sleep, but he’s my significant other. Isn’t he supposed to help me out? — ANXIOUS IN ANCHORAGE DEAR ANXIOUS: Of course he should. However, because he is either unwilling or unable to offer the emotional support you need to help you through your night terrors, you are going to have to help yourself. That’s why I’m recommending you talk to your physician about a referral to the nearest sleep disorder clinic. You need to understand and overcome whatever is keeping you up, because both you and Simon need a good night’s sleep to remain healthy and effective during the daytime. DEAR ABBY: My fiance and I are being married in about a month. Some friends in another country (who don’t speak English) offered to

Webb falls in overtime

Northwood 14, S. Vance 7

Warriors now 2-4 with loss to Cedar Ridge From STAFF REPORTS

J.F. Webb had the ball an inch away on fourth down in overtime, but couldn’t convert, and Cedar Ridge’s touchdown won it 20-14 for the Red Wolves. “These kids played hard all night,” said Webb coach Brian Currin. The Warriors took a 14-6 lead into halftime. Trevor White scored from five yards out, and Ty Breedlove punched it in from the 1-yard line. But the Webb offensive

attack was marred by five turnovers on the night. A Webb drive in the fourth quarter ended when the Warriors were inches away from converting a fourth down attempt. With the loss, Webb falls to 0-2 on the season. They open up Carolina 3A Conference play at Southern Vance next week. “They spread it out pretty well,” Currin said of Southern. “They always are going to have a couple of good backs.” “We’ve got to try to contain what they do on offense.”

Eagles fall to Northwest Halifax From STAFF REPORTS

Northwest Halifax rode a strong running game in the second half to put the game away in a 26-14 win over Warren County Friday. The score was tied at 14 at halftime. The Eagles scored on a 30-yard touchdown pass by E.J. Miles to Alex Demery, and on a 15-yard rush by Kelby Henderson. Warren County was missing two starters on the defensive line, as well as a linebacker.

Two went on a school field trip, while another sat out because of an injury. The Vikings’ offensive line dominated the Eagles’ front for most of the game. With the loss, Warren County falls to 0-2 in Northern Carolina 2A Conference play. Eagles coach Maurice Crump said he hopes to have everyone back for next week’s conference game against Roanoke Rapids. The Yellow Jackets defeated Franklinton 38-15 Friday night.

Raiders come up short

Raiders can’t score on late drive in loss to Chargers By KELLEN HOLTZMAN Special to the Dispatch

Trailing 14-0 at halftime, Southern Vance scored a late touchdown against Pittsboro Northwood to bring the Raiders within one score of the 2A powers from Chatham County. The Raiders (3-3), with no timeouts and deep in their own territory, needed to take the ball 68 yards in 32 seconds for a score — but failed to complete a first down as the Chargers held on for the 14-7 win. The win gave Northwood (6-0) a little redemption after two 2AA sectional losses to Southern in 2006 and 2007. “Obviously they (Northwood) came up here on a mission,” said Raiders coach Mark Perry. “My kids could have just laid over and said ‘scratch my belly, we’re done,’ but they didn’t.” After a Darriuan Ragland touchdown cut the lead to 14-7,

Southern came up with a huge third down stop to force a punt with less than five minutes to play. However, the Raiders failed to capitalize on the three-andout. Quarterback James Harris was intercepted on the ensuing play from scrimmage, giving the Chargers possession at midfield. Harris’ pass over the middle was intended for Ragland, but fell short. “We were going to the right receiver,” Perry said of the pick. “The ball just needed more air on it. It was a pretty good read. If the ball is over the defender’s head, that’s probably six points.” Harris did find Ragland for a score with just 5:03 left to play. Harris threw to his right and connected with a leaping Ragland at the 1, before the receiver powered his way into the end zone to put Southern on the board. “It’s basically a play we run

for an extra point,” said Perry. “One kid runs an out route and one kid runs an in route. You hope to get some confusion with the defensive backs and we did. James read it and made the right throw to the outside.” Starting the drive at their own 33, the Raiders got back in the game with a big 16-yard pass play from Harris to Shawn Carroll. Harris found Ragland again to extend the chains before running back Tommy Warren ran for another first down to Northwood’s 29. A roughing the passer penalty put Southern in goal-to-go territory, setting up the touchdown strike. The Chargers, ranked No. 6 in the latest Associated Press 2A poll, lit up the Raider Stadium scoreboard early, scoring all 14 of its points in the first quarter. Northwood completed a 60yard pass play to open the scorPlease see RAIDERS, page 2B

Spartans edge Panthers on homecoming From STAFF REPORTS

Kerr-Vance soccer coach Rick Frampton said his team played well, but had a hard time finishing Friday night. “We did everything but put it in the back of the net,” he said. The Spartans still held on for a 1-0 win on homecoming night, out-shooting an improving Granville Central team 25-3. John Allen scored the lone Spartan goal, which Frampton called “beautiful.” He kicked it just under the cross bar from about 30 yards out. Frampton said his team played much better in the second half. The Spartans improved to 8-8-4 with the win. They travel to Cary Christian for an Eastern Plains Indpendent Conference match Daily Dispatch/EARL KING on Tuesday, and return home to host Trinity of Raleigh on Kerr-Vance’s Parker Smith goes airborne to kick the ball away during the Thursday.

Louisburg backfield tramples Vikings, 29-11 By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor

The Warrior ground game proved too much for Northern Vance Friday night. Louisburg rushed for 346 yards in their 29-11 win. Ervin Hunt led the charge, with 165 yards and two touchdowns. “I thought we were going to be better defensively than we were,” said Northern Vance coach Cedric Crudup. “We had a really good week of practice. The kids really did everything correctly during practice. But for whatever reason, we just came out flat.” Crudup, whose team consists of mostly first-year starters, called the struggles “growing pains.” “It’s all about focus on Friday night.” With the win, Louisburg continues their solid season and improves their record to 5-1. Warrior coach Chris Lee gave credit to his offensive line. “We came out a little more aggressive up front on the offensive line. By far, this is the best job the offensive line has done all year,” said Lee. “We’ve got a couple of good backs and we blocked for them, and they don’t need much but a little crease.” Louisburg set the tone early with a scoring drive on

their opening possession. The running game and some good passes from Deandre Blacknall set up Tevin Hicks’ five-yard touchdown run. The PAT made it 7-0. Hunt increased the lead to 14-0 in the second quarter, punching it in from three yards out. Northern had a good drive on their next possession, but it stalled when a five-yard penalty pushed them backward. Branch tried to find Brandon Epps in the end zone, but the ball was overthrown. Another incomplete pass on third down set up Joseph Falkner’s career-high 47-yard field goal that put the Vikings on the board at 14-3. Northern caught a break later when, while deep in their own territory, Falkner’s punt was blocked by a Louisburg defender. But after the ball crossed the line of scrimmage, it hit a Louisburg player and was recovered by Northern Vance. The Vikings drove down near midfield in the waning seconds of the first half, but Branch’s pass was picked off by Blacknall, playing in the secondary. Louisburg took a 14-3 into the half. The Warriors could have had a bigger halftime lead. A 34-yard field goal attempt in Please see VIKINGS, page 3B

College Football Winston-Salem State rejoins CIAA CARY (AP) — With financial woes ending its bid to join Division I, Winston-Salem State is headed back to its old conference. The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association’s board of directors voted Friday to let the school back into the Division II league of historically black colleges and universities in time for the 2010-11 academic year. “We are elated. There are no hard feelings on our part,” said Jimmy Jenkins, president of the CIAA board. “We had an unanimous vote of the board, which was an indication that all board members are very excited to have them back.” Winston-Salem State left in 2004 with plans to move to the NCAA’s top tier with an invitation to join the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. But the school faced financial difficulties, amassing losses of more than $6 million since, including $1.8 million in the fiscal year ending June 30. Chancellor Donald Reaves projected the deficit would grow to $15 million by 2012. Winston-Salem State’s board of trustees voted last month to stop its Division I efforts. “Over the past two years, we have continued to be concerned that budgetary constraints would not allow us to successfully complete the transition,” Reaves said. The school will now have to reduce scholarships in football and basketball to meet Division II and CIAA criteria. The moves must be made before the Rams are eligible for CIAA championships

Emery, Flyers blank Hurricanes, 2-0 By JOEDY McCREARY AP Sports Writer

RALEIGH — It doesn’t matter what team Ray Emery is playing for. The Carolina Hurricanes never seem to get anything going against him, and that made for a memorable debut with Philadelphia. Emery made 28 saves in his first game with the Flyers and finished with his ninth career shutout, beating the Hurricanes 2-0 on Friday night in the opener for both teams. “He’s looked more comfortable every day,” Philadelphia coach John Stevens said. “He looks alert, he’s finding pucks, he makes saves on effort and he was tremendous.” Jeff Carter and Mike Richards scored powerplay goals 22 seconds apart for Philadelphia. The Flyers put their first two shots of the second period past Cam Ward and held on for their eighth win in 10 meetings with Carolina. “We got a lead, and we were able to keep it,” Emery said. Playing two days after signing a six-year, $37.8 million contract, Ward stopped 25 shots for Caro-

The Hurricanes came up empty on all eight of their power-play chances and were shut out in their opener for the first time in franchise history. “We definitely had the opportunities, especially on the power play,” Staal said. “I don’t think we moved it around terribly bad. It just didn’t fall for us. We had a lot of chances, (hit) a couple posts. ... We were hoping to get to the net and kind of get an ugly one.” With Sergei Samsonov serving a double-minor for high-sticking, Carter gave Philadelphia the lead 25 seconds into the period when he backhanded a

rebound past Ward. Moments later, Richards made it a two-goal game on a deflection through traffic. “Special teams bailed us out tonight,” Richards said. “Penalty-killing did a good job, we scored on a couple of power plays ... and that was the difference.” That wound up being plenty of offense for Emery, who spent last season in Russia but returned to the NHL hoping for more performances like this. He picked up where he left off in the preseason, when he had a 1.78 goals-against average and .943 save percentage. “It’s definitely some preparation, but you never

can tell until you actually get out there” in the regular season, Emery said. Emery’s last three appearances against the Hurricanes have ended in shutouts. His last complete-game regular-season shutout was a 2-0 victory over Carolina in February 2007, when he was with Ottawa. The following season, he and Martin Gerber teamed to blank the Hurricanes, but Emery logged only about 5 1/2 minutes of ice time in that game. He was one of the key offseason acquisitions for the Flyers, who also added defenseman Chris Pronger, and they wound up locking down Carolina’s offense. Nobody came closer to scoring for the Hurricanes than Eric Staal, whose apparent goal midway through the first was disallowed because teammate Andrew Alberts was called for a hand pass. “When you don’t score on the power play, you’re always feeling like that was the difference in the game for you,” Carolina coach Paul Maurice said. “But in terms of some of the (other) shots we got in tight, we’d like to (have scored on) those.”

Rio wins right to host 2016 Olympics By JOHN LEICESTER AP Sports Writer

COPENHAGEN — The 2016 Games are going to Rio de Janeiro. Finally, South America gets an Olympics. In a vote of high drama, the bustling Brazilian carnival city of beaches, mountains and samba beat surprise finalist Madrid, which got a big helping hand from a very influential friend. Chicago was knocked out in the first round — in one of the most shocking defeats ever handed down by the International Olympic Committee. President Barack Obama’s lastminute hop to Denmark didn’t swing the games Chicago’s way. He came, saw, charmed but did not conquer. Even Tokyo, which trailed throughout the tight race, did better — eliminated after Chicago in the second round. On Rio’s Copacabana beach, where the city will hold beach volleyball in 2016, the party was heading into the night. In Chicago, there was bewildered silence. Rio spoke to IOC members’ consciences: the city argued that it was simply unfair that South America has never hosted the games, while Europe, Asia and North America have done so repeatedly. “It is a time to address this imbalance,” Brazil’s charismatic president, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, told the IOC’s members before they delivered their verdict. “It is time to light the Olympic cauldron in a tropical country.” The final result was decisive: Rio beat Madrid by 66 votes to 32. Chicago got just 18 votes in the first round, with Tokyo squeezing into the second round with 22. Madrid was leading after the first round with 28 votes, while Rio had 26. In the second round,

People celebrate after Rio de Janeiro won the nomination to host the 2016 Olympic Games at the Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro Friday. Nearly 50,000 people erupted in celebration when Rio was announced host, jumping and cheering in a Carnival-like party on Copacabana beach. Tokyo was eliminated with just 20 votes. Madrid got 29, qualifying it for the final round face-off with Rio, which by then already had a strong lead, with 46 votes. Beating three rich, more developed nations that had all previously held the games represented a giant, morale-boosting coup for Brazil, an emerging nation bounding up the ranks of the world’s biggest economies but which still has millions of people living in poverty. Rio is known as much for its crime-ridden slums as for its stunning natural beauty. Silva, a bearded former union leader, disappeared into a huge group hug with the joyous Rio team after IOC president Jacques Rogge announced the city’s name. Football great Pele had tears in his eyes. Silva wept into a white handkerchief at a post-victory news conference. Brazil will now hold the world’s two biggest sporting events in the space of just two years: in 2014, it is organizing the World Cup. The slap to Chicago was such that some IOC members were left squirming. The city’s plans for Olympic competition along its stunning Lake Michigan waterfront had long made it a front-runner and

earned support from the highest possible level — Obama himself. His wife, Michelle, flew in two days before the vote to butter up IOC members, an essential part of the selection process. And Obama himself flew in Friday morning. IOC members had seemed wowed, posing for photos with Mrs. Obama and taking souvenir shots of the president with their mobile phones. But, in the vote, Chicago was shunned. “Either it was tactical voting, or a lot of people decided not to vote for Chicago whatever happened,” IOC member Gerhard Heiberg said. “Nobody knows, but everybody is in a state of shock. Nobody believes it. I’m very sorry about it.” Rio’s bid, while high on

romance, is not without risk. Because of Rio’s high crime and murder rates, security will be a constant issue in 2016. Preparing Rio for the Olympics will cost billions of dollars — money that critics said could have been better spent on tackling the city’s social problems. But the lure of that untapped frontier proved too strong for the IOC. “There was absolutely no flaw in the bid,” Rogge said. Added Heiberg: “We have sent out a message that we want to go global.” Now, Africa and Antarctica are the only continents never to have been awarded an Olympics. Madrid’s surprising success in reaching the final round came after former IOC president Juan Antonio Samaranch made an unusual appeal for the Spanish capital, reminding the IOC’s members as he asked for their vote that, at age 89, “I am very near the end of my time.” Samaranch ran the IOC for 21 years before Rogge took over in 2001. Obama himself only spent a few hours in the Danish capital and left before the result was announced. Former IOC member Kai Holm said the brevity of his appearance may have counted against Chicago. The short stopover was “too business-like,” Holm said. “It can be that some IOC members see it as a lack of respect.” RICHMOND, Va. — These numbers were drawn Friday afternoon by the Virginia Lottery: Pick 3: 6-1-8 Pick 4: 2-2-9-6 Cash 5: 5-15-26-29-33 These numbers were drawn Friday night: Pick 3: 8-4-2 Pick 4: 4-1-1-3 Cash 5: 6-14-23-24-29 Mega Mill.: 15-24-51-53-55 Mega Ball: 11

NL Roundup

Nats double-up Braves; Marlins beat Phils Nationals 6, Braves 3 ATLANTA (AP) — Rookie Ian Desmond homered, tripled and drove in three runs and the Washington Nationals kept up their strong finish to a dismal season. The Nationals, who lead the majors with 103 losses, have a five-game winning streak, their second-longest string of the year. The Braves have lost four straight. They were eliminated from the NL wild-card race on Thursday. Livan Hernandez (9-12) earned only his second win in his last nine decisions, giving up nine hits and three runs in 6 1-3 innings. Mike MacDougal pitched the ninth for his 20th save. Marlins 7, Phillies 2 PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Rick VandenHurk overcame Ryan Howard’s early home run and the Florida Marlins once again beat the NL East champion Philadelphia Phillies, 7-2 Friday night. Cameron Maybin had four hits, scored three times and drove in a run, and Jorge Cantu drove in three runs. The Marlins have won six of the last seven against the Phillies. Howard’s 44th homer

accounted for the Phillies’ only runs. He connected in the first inning and leads the majors with 140 RBIs. Joe Blanton (12-8) was shaky for the second straight outing, allowing five runs and nine hits in six-plus innings.

Diamondbacks 12, Cubs 3 CHICAGO (AP) — Eric Byrnes had his first multihomer game in more than two years and drove in five runs. Chris Young homered and had four hits, and Rusty Ryal drove in four runs for Arizona (69-91), which already is assured of finishing last in the NL West. The Diamondbacks have missed the playoffs two years in a row since sweeping the Cubs in the first round in 2007 and then losing in four games to Colorado. Chicago was been expected to win a third consecutive NL Central title but instead is 82-77 and headed to a second-place finish behind St. Louis. Billy Buckner (4-6) allowed three runs, six hits and four walks in 6 1-3 innings. Pirates 3, Reds 1 CINCINNATI (AP) —

Rookie Daniel McCutchen pitched into the seventh inning for his first major league win and Lastings Milledge homered. Andy LaRoche drove in two runs despite twice being thrown out trying to stretch singles into doubles. McCutchen (1-2) had been winless in five starts for Pittsburgh. He held the Reds scoreless until Wladimir Balentien’s 467foot home run. McCutchen allowed four hits, walked two and struck out five. Jesse Chavez finished the seventh, Joel Hanrahan pitched a perfect eighth and Matt Capps closed for his 27th save.

Mets 7, Astros 1 NEW YORK (AP) — Jeff Francoeur and Daniel Murphy each hit two-run homers and David Wright had an RBI double in the first and finished with three hits for New York, which had lost four of five — including an embarrassing three-game sweep at Washington. John Maine (7-6) pitched seven innings and improved to 4-1 with a 3.28 ERA in five career starts against Houston. He allowed one run on five hits in his longest outing since

he was activated Sept. 13 after being sidelined with a sore right shoulder.

Brewers 12, Cardinals 6 ST. LOUIS (AP) — Adam Wainwright’s hope for a 20th victory unraveled along with St. Louis’ bullpen and Milwaukee rallied for a win. Wainwright retired 15 in a row before consecutive one-out doubles by Craig Counsell and Ryan Braun cut the deficit to 6-1 in the sixth, and was pulled after allowing singles to Jody Gerut and Alcides Escobar to start the seventh. Giants 7, Padres 2 SAN DIEGO (AP) — Barry Zito’s last start of the season was marred when he was hit near his left elbow by Adrian Gonzalez’s line drive in the sixth inning of San Francisco’s win. Zito grimaced and didn’t go after the ball, which landed between the mound and third base. He was checked by a trainer and immediately left the game, which was tied at 1. Zito allowed one run and three hits in 5 1-3 innings, struck out six and walked two. Brandon Medders (5-1) got the last two outs of the sixth.

AL Roundup

Peavy, White Sox shut out Tigers White Sox 8, Tigers 0 DETROIT (AP) — Jake Peavy delayed Detroit’s chance to move closer to the AL Central title, pitching the Chicago White Sox past the slumping Tigers 8-0 Friday night. The Tigers went into the final weekend with a twogame lead over Minnesota, but got off to a bad start when Scott Podsednik hit a leadoff home run. Detroit lost for the fourth time in six games, all while the Twins were taking a big lead against Kansas City. Peavy (3-0) pitched eight scoreless innings and Carlos Quentin also homered. Out for three months because of an injured right ankle, Peavy gave up just two hits and showed the form he had as the 2007 NL Cy Young winner. Edwin Jackson (13-9) gave up a career-high eight runs. If the Tigers fail to hold off Minnesota, they will

become the first team in major league history to lead a division on May 10 and stay atop it until losing the title in the last week of a season.

Twins 10, Royals 7 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Jeff Manship (1-1) got a well-timed first big league win for the Minnesota Twins, who got a grand slam from Delmon Young and hung on to cut Detroit’s AL Central lead to one game. The Twins and Tigers each have two games remaining. Young had five RBIs, beginning with his first career slam in the first inning against Lenny DiNardo (0-3) that launched the Twins to their 14th win in their last 18 games. Orioles 13, Blue Jays 7 BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles endorsed the guaranteed return of manager Dave

Trembley in grand style. Michael Aubrey hit a two-run homer and his first career grand slam, Matt Wieters added a three-run shot, and Baltimore ended the Toronto Blue Jays’ sixgame winning streak. Before the game, the Orioles exercised the 2010 option on Trembley’s contract, assuring his return next season. Baltimore then scored its most runs since Aug. 28, a 13-run outburst against Cleveland.

Red Sox 6, Indians 2 BOSTON (AP) — Daisuke Matsuzaka tuned up for the postseason with his fourth straight strong performance and Boston sent Cleveland to a club-record 13th straight road loss with a 6-2 win Friday night. Matsuzaka (4-6) allowed two earned runs on five hits in six innings, continuing his surge that began when he pitched on Sept. 15 after nearly three months on the

Rays 13, Yankees 4 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — B.J. Upton ruined CC Sabathia’s bid to become a 20-game winner, going 5 for 5 while hitting for the cycle and driving in a careerhigh six runs to help the Tampa Bay Rays beat the New York Yankees 13-4 on Friday night. Sabathia (19-8) failed to get through the third inning, matching a personal worst by allowing nine runs — five earned — in 2 2-3 innings and losing for the first time in more than two months. Upton hit a three-run triple in the first inning off Sabathia, then doubled off the Yankees ace in the third. After hitting a tworun homer off Jonathan Albaladejo in the fourth, he completed the cycle with a run-scoring single off David Robertson in the fifth.

it down to the Northern 20. The Warriors drove it down to the 3, but lost possession on a fumble. Taking over on their own 3, Northern ran two run plays for negative yardage. On second down, Jeffries was brought down in the end zone for a safety, making it 29-3 Louisburg. Northern’s lone touchdown came with 3:42 left in the game. Branch threw a pretty spiral to DJ Williams, who took it in for a 53-yard reception. The Vikings faked the extra point, and Branch kept it himself and ran it in to make it 29-11. Branch finished the day 8-for-21 for 144 yards. Crudup said it was the best throw he’s seen Branch make. “It comes down to consistency. We made that play

Orange defeated South Granville 30-27 Friday night — a team that defeated Northern Vance 26-3 earlier this season. “We’ve got to do the little things right. Everything they did tonight, we prepared for. We didn’t see anything the kids didn’t know about,” Crudup said. The coach said that his team, now 1-5, needs to carry over the way they perform in practice to Friday night. “If we can get that, we’ll be okay.”

VIKINGS, from page 1B the first quarter was off the mark, and a second-quarter drive ended with a fumble at the Northern 15. “That’s what we’ve been struggling with all year long. We’ve moved the ball the last few weeks, but a turnover here, a penalty here has always set us back,” said Lee. “Bringing in a new offensive system, I think the boys are now finally starting to understand it and starting to see it click. And we’ve just got to eliminate the silly penalties and the turnovers, and we should be fine.” Northern began the third quarter with good field position. Eric Jeffries returned the opening kickoff to the Warrior 48. But the drive stalled again, and the Vikings were forced to punt after being pushed back by a holding

call and a fumbled snap. Louisburg took it down to the Northern 25, and Hunt took in all the way in. The score was 21-3, and the door started to close on Northern Vance. “They did a good job blocking us. We knew we were bigger than them up front, but for whatever reason, they just kicked our butts up front,” said Crudup. “Their kids wanted it a little bit more than ours, and they were tougher.” Blacknall scored on a quarterback sweep from the 12-yard line with 45 seconds left in the third quarter, and the Warriors had a 27-3 lead after extra point attempt failed.

North Carolina State coach Tom O’Brien directs his team during the second half of last Saturday’s game against Pittsburgh. The Wolfpack plays Wake Forest today.

Wolfpack opens ACC play today with Wake By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

Wake Forest’s rise to prominence this decade is tied to its penchant for collecting fumbles and interceptions. Mired at .500 this season with a surprisingly woeful turnover margin, the Demon Deacons hope to regain that takeaway tendency when North Carolina State visits Winston-Salem, N.C., on Saturday. Good luck, with Russell Wilson under center for the Wolfpack. “You see a guy that hasn’t thrown an interception since Moby Dick was a minnow,” Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe said. Wilson’s streak of passes without a pick is now at a NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision record 364. It’s been more than a calendar year and 13 game since he’s thrown it to the wrong team, and he’s fresh off engineering a two-touchdown comeback last week in the Wolfpack’s thrilling 38-31 win over Pittsburgh. “This is certainly his best effort, and that was judged because we were playing a BCS conference team that’s a good football team,” coach Tom O’Brien said.

It was the third consecutive victory for N.C. State (3-1) and the third straight game with at least 38 points since its ugly 7-3 loss to South Carolina in the opener. But O’Brien wasn’t pleased, declaring they still aren’t a good football team ahead of the Atlantic Coast Conference opener and first road game of the season. “When you want to be a good team, you have to do even the smallest little details right,” defensive tackle Leroy Burgess said. “That’s what coach O’Brien preaches, and that’s what we have to do to be at the top of the ACC or one of the better teams in the nation.” Grobe was similarly displeased after the Demon Deacons (2-2, 0-1 ACC) made numerous mental errors in last week’s overtime loss to Boston College, including a broken play in overtime that ended with quarterback Riley Skinner losing a fumble near the goal line when a touchdown would have won the game. It’s the kind of mistake Wake Forest is used to forcing, not making. After leading the nation with 72 takeaways over the last two seasons, the Demon Deacons sit at minus-4 in turnover margin in 2009.

Heels host desperate Cavaliers By AARON BEARD AP Sports Writer

CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina spent the past week trying to find its lost running game and figure out why it took a step backward in last weekend’s loss at Georgia Tech. Still, that beats what’s been going on around Al Groh’s Virginia program these days. While the Tar Heels are trying to sort out small issues heading into Saturday’s game, the Cavaliers are desperate for a win after a bad start that has only further energized Groh’s critics. Groh, for his part, said the team’s issue is “just playing better” and not the outside criticism. “There’s so much going on that all a team can really deal with is what it knows internally,” Groh said. Regardless, there’s no denying that the Cavaliers (0-3) can use any bit of success at this point. They spent the offseason installing a spread offense only to lose at home to Football Championship Subdivision team William & Mary to open the year, then were beaten soundly at home by ranked opponent TCU. They scrapped parts of that new offense before traveling to Southern Mississippi, where they blew a big lead and lost 37-34 heading into an off week. “Being 0-3, we really need to step up now,” linebacker Denzell Burrell said. “Now’s a better time than any to get it done.” So now the Cavs head to Chapel Hill with plenty of motivation and at least one advantage: The Tar Heels (3-1, 0-1) will have

to guess a bit on what kind of offense they’ll face in Kenan Stadium. As of now, it’s a mix of old and new. The Tar Heels have their own problems to worry about, though theirs seem less serious. True, the young offense that had shown so much promise against East Carolina instead reminded everyone that they’re going to have their ups and downs the rest of the year. But the nationally ranked defense couldn’t carry the load for the offense and surrendered 406 total yards in the 24-7 loss to the Yellow Jackets. “They’re our teammates and when they’re battling, we’ve got to make sure we put things on our shoulders and we take care of business,” cornerback Kendric Burney said. “We didn’t do what we needed to do. There were plenty of times where we could’ve gotten the offense the ball back and we just didn’t make plays.” North Carolina coach Butch Davis said there would be no major changes to the lineup despite the bad performance. The loss knocked the Tar Heels out of the national rankings, but they are starting a favorable stretch of the schedule with five of the next six at home. Meanwhile, freshman receiver Erik Highsmith has consecutive 100-yard games and looks like he has filled the Tar Heels’ most glaring need for a go-to receiver. The most pressing need for North Carolina is getting its running game going again. After running for 148 yards against the Pirates, the Tar Heels got just 17 yards on the ground last week.

Blue Devils looking for upset of No. 6 Virginia Tech

the very next week, getting beat. I think you talk about it and you look at it. We understand we better get ready to play a heck of a football game against Duke.” Duke quarterback Thaddeus Lewis says the Hokies will be ready to play. “It doesn’t matter what time or when or where, when you play somebody. ... You still have to play football,” Lewis said. “It

doesn’t matter if they beat Florida and they’re coming in here the next week, you know? You just have to play football. Nobody can say we caught Virginia Tech at a good time or a bad time. It’s all going to be decided on Saturday, regardless of the situation.” Nonetheless, if there’s a team that Tech seemingly could afford to overlook, it’s Duke. The Hokies have

changed conferences twice since their last loss to the Blue Devils in 1981, jumping from the independents to the Big East and, finally, to the ACC. Virginia Tech has won eight straight meetings since then. The closest Duke has come to knocking them off was last year, when the Hokies claimed a 14-3 victory over a Blue Devils team that played without Lewis, who was out with an ankle injury. He’s healthy this time, and both teams are well aware of what happened last week: three top-10 teams were beaten by unranked opponents. So is Hokies quarterback Tyrod Taylor. He gave the Hurricanes fits with both his arm and his legs, throwing a 48-yard touchdown pass while running for 75 yards to move past Michael Vick and into third place on the school’s career rushing list for quarterbacks. “We know that they’re going to pound, pound and take their shots. ... We have to always stay on our toes and be prepared for

By JOEDY McCREARY AP Sports Writer

DURHAM — The Duke Blue Devils could have the No. 6 Virginia Tech Hokies right where they want them. The Hokies are flying high after their big win over Miami. And the Blue Devils, who quietly are feeling good about themselves after an easy victory over a Football Championship Subdivision team, did play Virginia Tech close last year in Blacksburg. Possible upset formula? The Blue Devils (2-2) proving to themselves that they can play with the Hokies and a little post-Hurricane hangover for Virginia Tech (3-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference. Hokies coach Frank Beamer has seen it before. “I think we can look at our game from last year and see how tough these guys played us,” Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer said. “You talk about those things, there’s a lot of examples of guys coming off great wins and then,

them to take a shot,” Duke cornerback Leon Wright said. “We’ll be fine as long as we don’t try to overplay ourselves or be superheroes. Let our defensive front and linebackers handle the run, and stay back on our guys, and make the play when the ball’s in the air, we’ll be fine.” Virginia Tech’s traditionally tough defense figures to create a difficult matchup for Lewis and coach David Cutcliffe’s pass-based offense. The Hokies have been criticized for being leaky against the run — at least, they were before the Miami game — but those numbers should improve against a Duke ground game that ranks 11th in the ACC. The Blue Devils are throwing for 267 yards per game and nine of their 13 offensive touchdowns have come through the air — but Tech has allowed only one passing touchdown this season. Those numbers haven’t come against weaklings, either. The only team to beat any of Tech’s first

It’s time Fauntroy delivers sermon on forgiveness for us to for this year’s Royster Lecture Series get sober By DAVID IRVINE Daily Dispatch Writer

“And another angel followed, saying, ‘Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.’ ” Revelation 14:8 The above reference verse points to a time during the Great Tribulation when “Babylon” will cause all nations to be intoxicated with sin and godlessness. Nations will lose all sense of morality and reason, and follow mindlessly after her. Some have interpreted “Babylon” as a commercial/political system and others as a religious antiGod movement. There are others (like myself) who believe that the ancient city of Babylon in modern Rev. Abidan day Iraq will Shah rise again. As in days past, Clearview she will cause Baptist humankind to be drunk with pride and rebellion in the last days. However one interprets Babylon, one thing is for sure – human beings will be greatly deceived and lose all moral consciousness during this period. Although the drunkenness of the end-times will be on a worldwide scale, history reveals several instances of mass drunkenness in individual nations. Thomas Mann, a German writer who had to go into exile because of his anti-Fascist views, compared the coming of Hitler and the Nazis to a kind of “mass drunkenness” in Germany. He described it as an intoxication where “virtue sets aside her shield, the mind drops its scepter . . . Massdrunkenness, which relieves the individual of responsibility, is an end in itself. The ideology which it exalts, such as the State, or Socialism, or the greatness of the country, is not essential to it. They are only pretexts. The one aim is drunkenness. One must get rid of his own self, his own thoughts – or, more precisely, of morality and reason in general.” Mann (I don’t agree with him on everything) saw clearly what many in Germany failed to see until it was too late. This mass intoxication that comes from a bottle of lies is no different than the one that comes from an alcoholic beverage. People under the influence are no longer in proper control of their actions, behavior or decisions. They lose their ability to discern and defend themselves and are easily robbed. They do things to others that bring sorrow, shame, abuse and pain. When they get sober, they have bruises they can’t explain, losses they can’t retrieve, and regrets they can’t take back. Symptoms of this mass drunkenness can be seen in America today. Right before our eyes, untold billions are being spent, our defenses are being lowered against proven enemies like Russia, proven allies like Israel are being abandoned, our children are being subject to strange indoctrinations, socialism is exalted through the health scare plan, government interference in business and banking system is growing daily, traditional family values are being eroded, and biblical principles that undergird this nation have been discarded. Our founding fathers would be shocked to see what is happening in America today. In fact, they would think that we were drunk for allowing such things to pass right under our noses. The consequences of these decisions are not only devastating to us but also to our children and grandchildren. Here is the concoction to get our nation sober: “ . . . denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ.” Titus 2:12-13 Let’s take the first step today: “Hi my name is (insert your name here) and I am mass drunk.” Anybody else sober out there?

The Rev. Walter E. Fauntroy delivered a message on forgiveness in the Sunday evening edition of the annual Royster Lectures at First Presbyterian Church. Using the biblical parable of the woman taken in adultery, Fauntroy said Jesus’ example of forgiveness can guide us in a dangerous world, in which forgiveness is “the most valuable commodity.” “I’ve seen this woman,” Fauntroy said. “She is all of us who have yielded to sin.” But Jesus forgave her. Israelis and Palestinians need to learn to forgive, he said. African Americans need to forgive the centuries of slavery. Fauntroy described a second woman, who brought perfumed oils in an alabaster box to wash Jesus’ feet, then dried his feet with her hair. “She spoke no words,” said Fauntroy. “She poured her love for the Master into her actions.” Fauntroy said he had also seen this woman, “right now, in this church. You ought to identify with her.” He went on to say that we are saved, “not by our own acts but by the grace of God.” Fauntroy said that Moses gave the Hebrew people a set of laws. “They were not sugges-

tions. They were commandments,” he added. At each phase of his career, Fauntroy said he was asked, “What are you doing?” His response each time was, “I’m fighting sin,” which he defined as arrogance and self-seeking. Fauntroy concluded his lecture by reciting — half talking, half singing — “I come to pour my praise on Him, like oil from the alabaster box.” The First Presbyterian Church choir began the service by singing the introit and concluded the service with a choral benediction. The First Baptist Church choir sang John Rutter’s “For the Beauty of the Earth” and Josephine Poelinitz’s “Heaven,” with a solo by Jonathan O’Geary. Fauntroy was introduced by the Rev. Dr. Brett WebbMitchell, interim pastor at First Fauntroy Presbyterian Church. Fauntroy, obviously moved by the music, said that Negro spirituals are “tunes of the spirit.” He told of being asked, while he was on a visit to a Baptist church in the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War, if he would sing a spiritual to the local choir. He sang in English, “I am a poor pilgrim, lost in this wide world alone.” As it was translated, members of the Russian choir “wept in joy as they were overcome by the word of God.” Fauntroy spoke three times as part of the

Royster lecture series: at the Sunday morning worship service and at Sunday and Monday evening services. Fauntroy has spent a 50-year career as a minister, civil rights activist and member of Congress. He was born in Washington, D.C., and grew up there. After graduating from Virginia Union University, he earned a divinity degree from Yale University. He then returned to Washington to serve the New Bethel Baptist Church as pastor. He was a friend and associate of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., serving as director of the Washington office of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. He helped coordinate King’s historic 1963 march on Washington as well as the Selma to Montgomery Voting Rights March in 1965 and the Meredith Mississippi Freedom March in 1966. When legislation was passed giving the District of Columbia a non-voting delegate in Congress, Fauntroy was elected to the position, which he held for 20 years. The Royster Series was established in 1975 by Dr. and Mrs. Thomas Royster Jr. in memory of his parents, who had been members of First Presbyterian Church. The series seeks to bring some of the best preaching in the world to the people of Henderson and Vance County. It is intended to be ecumenical in nature.

New non-denominational church to begin services Sunday at local movie theater By LINDA GUPTON Dispatch Features Editor

A new non-denominational church will hold its first services at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow morning in an unlikely venue — Marketplace Cinema on Beckford Drive in Henderson. The organizers for Henderson Community Church, which will be led by Pastor James Stainback, have been making plans for several months in preparation for the launch of the new congregation. A former Methodist minister who served as a student pastor at two churches in the Warrenton area, Stainback, 28, is excited about the way God has opened doors for the new church. “It’s been pretty amazing how everything has fallen into place,” said Stainback, who grew up in the Middleburg community of Vance County. “God has just opened doors

for me to be introduced to the right people to just keep everything going.” Stainback is excited about the movie theater venue, which he feels provides seating and a stage area that makes it perfect for a church service. “Nancy Jo Smith (owner of the Marketplace Cinemas) has been great to work with us and give us a wonderful deal on rent,” said Stainback. Another member of his core group of supporters knew an accountant who could help with filling out the church’s application for non-profit status, and yet another person handed Stainback a check for $500 to use for “anything he needed to get the new church off the ground.” That money went towards the purchase of a projector to use during the worship service. The vision and mission for the church is to simply show forth the love of Jesus Christ, said Stainback. “We want to be a church

where people are comfortable regardless of race or class. We’re just encouraging people to come as they are, whether that’s in shorts or a suit and tie.” The worship style will be contemporary, he said. Stainback said he currently has a core group of approximately 40 people who have committed to the new church. The church hopes to dedicate the third Sunday each month as a service Sunday when members will bring in items for a needy family and take time to deliver those items to the family and minister to those in need. “We want to glorify God both inside the church and outside the church in the community,” he said.

First Baptist Church receives grant to promote development of next generation of church leaders By DAVID IRVINE Daily Dispatch Writer

First Baptist Church of Henderson has been chosen to receive a $15,000 grant from the Fund for Theological Education to promote the development of church leaders. The grant is one of eight awarded nationally by FTE and the only one in North Carolina. Seven different denominations are represented among the grant recipients. The Rev. Rusty Edwards, minister of Christian formation at First Baptist Church, told the Daily Dispatch that the funds will be used to plan and conduct a summerlong program in 2010 for rising high school juniors and seniors, college students and seminary students. The program is designed to create an atmosphere to explore Christian vocational callings, not necessarily to persuade young people to enter the ministry. The effort is part of an emphasis among a number of denominations to develop the next generation of Christian leaders by engaging young people, particularly at the local level. Edwards holds a Master of Divinity

degree from Truett Seminary of Baylor University and a Master of Theology degree from Duke Divinity School. He has a particular interest in how practices of the early Christian church express themselves in modern Christian living. It may be from this interest that the local project got its name, “Vocational Mystagogy.” He explained that the term originated in the early church and can be defined roughly as “unveiling of the mystery.” Edwards hopes the grant will serve as seed money that will allow a continuation of the program beyond the initial 18-month effort. The program at First Baptist Church reflects the goals of the Fund for Theological Education. Established in 1954, FTE is an ecumenical organization that promotes excellence and diversity in Christian ministry and theological scholarship. In addition to making grants, the Atlanta-based organization conducts regional workshops and conferences and awards scholarships for students to use in pursing Christian vocations.

The award to First Baptist Church is part of FTE’s “Calling Congregations” initiative to equip churches and church-related organizations to play a role in supporting youth and young adults who are considering the ministry as a profession. FTE launched the grant program in 2007 with funding from Lilly Endowment Inc. By the end of 2009, it will have awarded a total of $350,000 in grants. According to information released by FTE, many denominations face a potential crisis of leadership as current leaders age and retire. Fewer than seven percent of clergy in mainline denominations are under the age of 35. Jim Goodman, Calling Congregations Regional Director and Grant Program Administrator for FTE, explains the rationale behind the grants. “Every community depends on strong local churches, and congregations need highly capable leaders to serve their growing needs,” he says. “These grants enable congregations to move further into their role as nurturers of the next generation of leaders.” Contact the writer at

Henderson-Vance Ministers’ Community Partnership elects new officers, continues push to create men’s emergency shelter At its regular September meeting, the Henderson-Vance Ministers Community Partnership elected new officers to serve a one-year term beginning on Oct. 1 and ending Sept. 30, 2010. Joseph Ratliff, pastor of Shiloh Baptist Church in Henderson, was elected chairman, and Doug Addington, pastor of West Hills Presbyterian Church in Henderson, was elected vice chairman. Mary Anderson, also of Shiloh Baptist Church, was elected secretary.

Paul Baxley, who has served for two years as chairman, encouraged the group to elect new leadership, believing that the cooperative efforts among the churches would be made stronger by providing different ministers and churches opportunities to exercise leadership. The Ministers Community Partnership was established two years ago to unite ministers and churches for the cause of Christ and the sake of the community. Each year, the group sponsors several community-wide

worship and prayer experiences, while also working on collaborative initiatives, the most recent example of which is an emergency men’s shelter, which is scheduled to open later this year. The next meeting of the Ministers Community Partnership will be held on Monday, Oct. 19, at 10 a.m. at the Downtown Development/ Chamber of Commerce Conference Room on South Garnett Street. All area ministers are invited to attend.

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

Answer here: AN (Answers Monday) GAVEL OUTWIT DOUBLY Jumbles: AWASH Answer: He turned out to be a bigamist because he loved — TWO WELL


Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). You didn’t think you needed it, but you get it anyway — the stamp of approval from your peers. This feels better than expected. Savor the moment, but don’t let it change you in any way. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If only you could control what comes out of your loved ones’ mouths. Children in particular could come up with innocent but embarrassing comments at inopportune moments. Luckily, your sense of humor is stellar. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll mix and mingle. After it’s over, you’ll remember some of what you said and heard and you just may cringe. But don’t dwell on the imperfection of it — that’s what makes us humans so charming! CANCER (June 22-July 22). Be proud of your background. The people you meet will put exactly the value on your history that you put on it. Remember that everyone goes through awkward or difficult phases. Hold the former you in high regard. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ve been involved in a marathon effort, and though you’ve come a great distance, you’ve plenty of strength left. Keep that yellow tape in your sights. It will be a race to the finish line. You’ll be amazing in the final stretch. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Isn’t it weird how trying to impress someone always has the opposite effect? That’s why you like to play it cool, keeping a low profile. It works in your favor now, as others find your quiet confidence irresistible.









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



LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Someone thinks you are wonderful. It might have something to do with the fact that you think this person is wonderful, too, and have mentioned it on a few key occasions. Keep up the enthusiasm! SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There have been people who have treated you badly in the past, but you don’t want to talk about that. You’re a winner who will choose upbeat topics, even when others are being conversational downers. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You let down your guard with people who make you feel comfortable and you might be moved to confess deeper truths or a different side of yourself than you usually show. You will be safe. You are accepted. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your loved one may not say “I love you” as much as you would like to hear it, though this person is telling you that this is the case with his or her actions. Interpret each helpful act as a confession of great affection. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have no reason to worry. That’s just a bad habit of the mind that you learned from someone when you were young. You’ll be consciously retraining your thoughts to focus on your many options. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You want to attract a new kind of person into your life and you’ll be inspired to change yourself a bit, too. It’s fun for you to think about your identity objectively. Apply your artistic sensibilities into creating your own persona.
