County’s new fire/EMS leader unveiled Hiring of Harold Henrich does bring questions from a commissioner By AL WHELESS Daily Dispatch Writer

Harold Henrich, Vance County’s new fire marshal/EMS director, was introduced a little ahead of schedule Monday night to the Board of Commissioners. County Manager Jerry Ayscue had to move up his unveiling of the man who was hired to manage the newly independent Vance fire and EMS services when Commissioner Deborah Brown decided to express her concerns about how Henrich was chosen. Henrich is from Johnston County, and Brown appeared to wonder why someone closer to the fire and EMS operations in Vance wasn’t picked. Brown said she did not support “the manner in which personnel actions were taken” to fill the position, and listed her reasons. “Since establishing the Human Resources Committee,

the procedures we use for hiring department heads have not been consistent,” she said. “When Vance County applicants are deemed quali- Brown fied for positions, they should be afforded opportunities by Vance County to grow and develop their skills accordingly.” However, Brown pledged to support Henrich and all efforts to improve the fire and EMS services in the county. “Failure to achieve anything less than the best service for our citizens can and should not be an option,” Brown told her fellow board members. Chairman Dan Brummitt told Brown that Ayscue conducted interviews of the six finalists from 13 applicants during the screening process with the help

of the regional representatives of the State Fire Marshall’s Office and the North Carolina Office of Emergency Medical Services. Commissioner Scott Hughes told Henrich: “You do have charisma, and that is what it is going to take to bring all those departments together.” When he addressed the board, Henrich said, “It’s a challenge with a lot of obstacles, but I have a wonderful staff.” Contacted by telephone late Monday afternoon, Ayscue said, “I am pleased to have Chief Henrich in this important position of critical leadership.” According to the county manager, Henrich, “has the necessary skills to help guide the Vance County Fire and Ambulance Department through a successful period of transition and progress.” Please see HIRING, page 3A

Proposal to move VGCC Small Business Center downtown withdrawn By AL WHELESS Daily Dispatch Writer

With three members already against it, the proposed downtown location for Vance-Granville Community College’s Small Business Center was to have gone before the full board of Vance County commissioners Monday night. However, County Manager Jerry Ayscue announced to the board during its meeting that the discussion item had been withdrawn from the agenda by the Henderson-Vance Economic Development Commission.

The action by the EDC came on the heels of a negative response to the proposal on Sept. 25 by the Vance Commissioners’ Planning and Environmental Committee. In a recent letter from Chairman Sam Watkins, the EDC asked the Board of Commissioners to approve footing the bill for the relocation, rental and utilities expenses in connection with moving the center from the VGCC campus to the vacant BB&T building on Chestnut Street in Henderson. Watkins’ letter wanted the county to rent space in the build-

ing from Henderson Investment Development Corporation, which has an option to purchase the property for $300,000. Part of the center would consist of classrooms, and there would be small business “incubators” in the building. Watkins also mentioned that the EDC would like to move its office to the site if space is available. The Planning and Environmental Committee — consisting of Chairman Dan Brummitt and commissioners Terry Garrison and Danny Wright — decided to

Today

let all of the Vance Commissioners consider the proposal. But Brummitt, Garrison and Wright agreed that the county already has enough buildings, including some that are not being used. During the committee meeting, concern was expressed about spending $240,000 for rent and an equal sum for utilities in a $300,000 building over the life of a five-year contract with HIDC.

Polls open at 6:30 a.m. today in Henderson’s municipal election, with voters to decide who should serve in the mayor’s position and to decide five of eight City Council positions being contested. The polls will close at 7:30 p.m., with the chosen leaders to serve a two-year term in the councilmanager form of government. In the contest for Henderson’s chief executive position, firstterm incumbent Pete O’Geary is facing opposition from four candidates. They are Tina Hunter, Tammy Sue Lightfoot, Tim McAllister and Juanita Somerville. Hunter is a substitute teacher for Granville County Schools. O’Geary, a former councilman, won the mayor’s position in 2007 by defeating Jeannie Hight, a former councilwoman. The two were competing to replace then-Mayor Clem Seifert, who declined to seek re-election. Here is a recap of the council contests and the candidates: • Ward 1: Incumbent Mary Emma Evans is being challenged by Cathy Ringley. • Ward 1 At Large: Incumbent Bernard Alston is again being challenged by Sara Coffey. • Ward 2: Incumbent Michael Rainey is being challenged by Lewis Edwards. • Ward 2 At Large: First-term incumbent Michael Inscoe is being challenged by Lowell West Jr. Although former Councilman Bobby Gupton will be on the ballot as a candidate for the Ward 2 At Large position, he withdrew from the contest for health reasons. • Ward 4 At Large: Incumbent George Daye is being challenged by former Councilman Ranger Wilkerson. Unopposed are Ward 3 Councilman Garry Daeke, Ward 3 At Large Councilwoman Brenda Peace and Ward 4 Councilman Lonnie Davis. Daeke, whose tenure on the council dates back to 2005, is development coordinator at Franklin-Granville-Vance Partnership for Children.

County OKs Phase 1 of water plan

Construction of Vance County’s proposed water district will begin Feb. 1 of 2010 under a progress schedule for Phase 1 that was approved Monday night by the Board of Commissioners. Members of the board also authorized the County to proceed with Phase 2A, which includes Dabney and the southern part of Williamsboro, and Phase 2B, which includes Townsville and the northern part of Williamsboro. Phase 1A covers Cokesbury and Aycock. The related timeline, which was recommended by the board’s Planning and Environmental Committee, also includes these steps: • Appoint from Oct. 5-19 a citizens’ advisory committee to obtain sign-ups on a local level. It would report to County Manager Jerry Ayscue. • Send out water bills on Oct. 1 to Phase 1A service area residents at the beginning of mass mailings of sign-up forms that will stop on Oct. 15. If approved, the contracts would specify estimated monthly rates of $35 to $45 for 5,000 gallons of water. • Start conducting sign-up drives on Oct. 15 in public meetings at locations in Phase 1A and door-to-door. Participation is not mandatory.

After Commission Chairman Hubert Gooch three times asked what his fellow commissioners wanted to do, Commissioner Tony Cozart made a motion backing Alligood, which died for lack of a second. After Bob Stewart, a representative of Phoenix, had made a presentation to the commission at the panel’s Sept. 8 meeting, the commission had referred the application to County Emergency Services Director Martin Bragg. Bragg returned with a memorandum saying:

• Stewart at the September commission meeting had indicated Phoenix had a contract with the VA Medical Center in Durham. • Bragg subsequently asked for a copy of the contract and received a document appearing to be a contract, but making no reference to Phoenix and being absent of any signatures. • Bragg received another copy of a contract, which appeared to have pages missing. • And Bragg, after a third request, received what appeared to be a con-

tract between the two for “ambulance services.” • Phoenix’s application said the company provides “comprehensive, transportation services” for the Atlanta VA Medical Center and the Miami VA Medical Center. • Bragg said his discussions with the Georgia and Florida offices of emergency medical services said Phoenix provides non-medical transportation for these facilities and has no license to provide any type of ambulance service in these states.

Two teachers, Henri Parham and Janice Ellington, have received the Golden Eagle Award at Carver Elementary School for being “deserving, hardworking” staff members, said Carver Principal Harold Gene Thompson Jr., Ph.D. The awards program, which started last year, was the result of a brainstorming session between Thompson and his staff, he said. “We’re just trying to boost morale and pay homage to those who have gone beyond the call of duty,” he said. Each recipient is chosen for a two-week period by the previous winner. Recipients are awarded an eight-inch stuffed cloth eagle, the school’s mascot, which is passed from one recipient to the next. Besides teachers, those eligible for the honor include cafeteria workers, custodians, teachers’ assistants, clerical personnel and bus drivers. Parham was recognized for the period of Sept. 7-18. She is married to Ricky Parham and has two children, Samantha and Casey, and a grandson, Jordan. The eight-year employee has done tutoring at the school, and currently is an instructional assistant in a second-grade classroom and an art teacher. She serves on the curriculum, hospitality, cultural awareness, positive behavior support and safety and flag patrol committees. “Mrs. Parham never stops giving of her time and talents,” Thompson said. “Her students’ works are displayed beautifully in the halls and classrooms at Carver.” Ellington was spotlighted for the period of Sept. 21 through Oct. 2. She is married

to Michael Ellington Sr. and has two children, Michael Jr. and Chrystal Ivey. The couple’s two granddaughters are Kelsey and Kaylee Ivey. Ellington has worked as a tutor and computer lab instructor for seven years. The committees she serves on include awards and recognition, hospitality and technology club. “Mrs. Ellington’s goals for her students at Carver are to inspire a thirst for learning and to demonstrate that learning can be fun,” Thompson said. “She works passionately with her students. This is seen vividly while she works with her computer club members after school.” During their assigned weeks, Ellington’s students enjoy serving as lab technicians, Thompson said. “The word-processing skills of her primary students are sure to brighten anyone’s day.”

AMBULANCE, from page one • Bragg said Stewart indicated by telephone these services were the same as those intended for Granville County. • Bragg said, however, they are not of a medical nature. • And Bragg said the county’s present franchised provider of nonemergency transports, North Central Medical Transport, has provided competent service. Additionally, County Finance Director Michael Felts in a memorandum said that he looked at the financial information submitted with Phoenix’s application and that what was provided was not a complete audit. And without full financial documentation, Felts said, the information did not appear to be complete or correct. Stewart, appearing in the public comment phase earlier in Monday evening’s commission meeting, said he was unsure everyone at the September meeting understood this would be strictly to provide non-emergency services for VA patients with the VA in Durham. “Phoenix was awarded the contract to provide transportation for those services and I have learned this evening of seeing some memos that passed back and forth that we were not aware of that there may be some things missing in our application,” Stewart said. “If that is the case, we

would certainly be happy to provide anything additional that is needed,” Stewart said. “Also in speaking with people in Raleigh at the EMS at the state level, is that there is no restriction on the number of ambulance services that can serve a single county,” Stewart said, adding that the ability is based on having the appropriate equipment, manpower and training in place. “And the company has already begun to do that and will create a payroll of somewhere in the neighborhood of $500,000 in Granville County the first year of operation,” Stewart said, adding that the company intended to hire local people. Stewart left after the commission’s vote. The commission, after meeting openly for nearly an hour, went into closed session, citing the attorney-client privilege and the need to discuss a property acquisition matter as exemptions to the state’s open meeting laws.

Tim Carpenter, lead engineer for Hobbs, Upchurch & Associates, said financial assistance will be sought through three programs: USDA, Community Development Block Grant; and County-funded. In related business on Monday night, the Commissioners authorized the staff and engineers to develop an application to the North Carolina Rural Economic Development Center for $1 million in grant funding which can be used for the County’s rural water district.

HIRING, from page one Ayscue said Henrich’s annual salary will be $57,480. In a telephone interview earlier in the day, Henrich said he was looking forward to, “the opportunity to lead the fire and ambulance department into the future and serve the citizens of Vance County.” Thursday of last week was the first day on the job for Henrich, a 40-year-old New York state native who served the last four years as deputy fire marshal in Johnston County. Henrich was also Johnston’s Emergency Management director. He also had some EMS administrative duties, and was liaison to the county’s 28 volunteer fire departments.

Prior to that, Henrich was chief of Western Carteret Fire and EMS services for four years. Henrich estimated that the department had 20 full-time and part-time employees, as well as some volunteers. The city of Henderson and Vance County parted company in terms of joint fire-and EMS operations on Oct. 1 when the binding contract between to operate the services as a joint venture expired. A few months ago, a fire-EMS study funded by the county recommended that Vance have its own department. Contact the writer at awheless@ hendersondispatch.com.

The idea of creating a new Vance County Area Farmers’ Market began to take root Monday night when the Board of Commissioners OK’d a planning committee to identify potential sites and seek grants. The successful motion for approval was made by Commissioner Deborah Brown, who also said: “Let’s get the show on the road.” The board’s Planning & Environmental Committee had expressed full support for the project. During the committee’s meeting on Sept. 24, Danny Wright and Chairman Dan Brummitt got caught up in Terry Garrison’s

vision of Vance having a scaled-down version of the open air market enjoyed by residents of Charleston in South Carolina. Garrison had nothing but praise for the out-ofstate event which includes the sales of produce, crafts and other agricultural items. Pete Burgess of the Vance County Farm Bureau estimated that a suitable building for a local farmers’ market would cost $400,000. The committee members agreed to recommend that their board appoint a committee to help with the process of creating the market.

Warren County earns citation for ‘excellence in financial reporting’ By DAVID IRVINE Daily Dispatch Writer

WARRENTON — The unofficial business took precedence over the official business Monday, as Warren County commissioners began their October meeting. Chairman Barry Richardson asked Finance Director Barry Mayo and his staff to come forward to accept a “Certificate of Achievement for Exellence in Financial Reporting,” awarded to Warren County by the Government Financial Officers Association of the United States and Canada. Richardson presented Mayo with an engraved plaque, which Mayo accepted along with staff members Gloria Edmonds, Cecile Renn, Evelyn Cooper, Debbie Brauer and Louise Andrews. County Manager Linda Worth noted this is the fourth consecutive year that the Finance Department has earned the distinction. Commissioners approved a request by Robert Whitehead on behalf of the Roanoke Wildwood Volunteer Fire Department to authorize them to borrow $1 million to build a new fire station. Commissioner Bill Davis asked if the action obligated the county financially. Worth confirmed that it does not. At the request of Diane Cox, Kerr Tar Area Agency on Aging director, the commissioners approved $1,312 to match a $11,809 grant from the federal American Recovery and Reimbursement Act, also known as Economic Stimulus legislation. The match will be paid out of the county’s fund balance. The commissioners approved selling through a sealed-bid auction the following surplus properties:

Person’s Ordinary, a historic tavern in Littleton; Mayflower School; Oine School; and North Warren Elementary School. A condition of the sale, recommended by the County Attorney, is that the properties should be sold to an organization that would put them to a public use. The commissioners also approved the auctioning of tax-foreclosed property at 1722 Tower Road, Norlina. At the request of Debbie Scott, Healthy Carolinians of Warren County chairperson, the commissioners approved $6,350 for the program to make up for anticipated cuts in state funding, to be paid out of the county’s fund balance. Commissioner Davis asked if the amount would be reimbursed to the county if state funds are restored. Worth said it would, although she added that restoration of the state funds was “not likely.” At the request of Department of Social Services Director Jeffrey Woodard and Adult Services Manager Charles Walton, the commissioners approved an application for Rural Operating Assistance Program funds to assist the county in reaching out to the Hispanic community. In other actions, the commissioners: • Approved the purchase of several vehicles, including: 1) one EMS Chassis remount; 2) nine 2010 Ford Crown Victoria law enforcement vehicles; and 3) one Ford Edge, at a total cost of $299,335, including principal and interest. • Passed a resolution declaring the county’s intent to borrow up to $59,000 to renovate the former Warren County Library and to reimburse itself within three years.

Toyota formally recalls 3.8 million vehicles By KEN THOMAS Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — Toyota Motor Corp. officially recalled 3.8 million vehicles in the United States on Monday to address problems with floor mats that could cause the gas pedal to stick and cause a crash. The automaker formally informed the federal government of the recall in a letter Monday. It will be Toyota’s largest U.S. recall and the country’s sixth-largest recall, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recall includes 20072010 model year Toyota Camry, 2005-2010 Toyota Avalon, 2004-2009 Toyota Prius, 2005-2010 Tacoma, 2007-2010 Toyota Tundra, 2007-2010 Lexus ES350 and 2006-2010 Lexus IS250/ IS350. Chris Santucci, Toyota’s assistant manager for technical and regulatory affairs, wrote in the letter to NHTSA that there are 3.8

million vehicles involved but “this estimate is subject to change as Toyota refines the number of affected vehicles by model.” Toyota told the government it has not determined that the vehicles “contain a ’safety-related defect’ within the meaning of the federal safety laws” but would notify owners of the safety campaign. Santucci wrote “there is a potential for an accelerator pedal to get stuck in the wide open position due to an unsecured or incompatible driver’s floor mat. A stuck open accelerator pedal may result in very high vehicle speeds and make it difficult to stop the vehicle, which could cause a crash, serious injury or death.” Toyota said last week it would recall the vehicles and warned owners to remove the driver’s side floor mats and not replace them until the company determined a way to fix the problem. The massive recall was prompted by a high-speed

crash in August involving a 2009 Lexus ES350. California Highway Patrol Officer Mark Saylor, 45, and three members of his family were killed when their vehicle hit speeds exceeding 120 mph, struck a sport utility vehicle, launched off an embankment, rolled several times and burst into flames. Family members made a frantic 911 call from the Lexus and said the accelerator was stuck and they couldn’t stop the vehicle. In Japan, Toyota President Akio Toyoda said last week that the fatal crash was “extremely regrettable” and offered his “deepest condolences.” Toyota said in the letter it would tell owners of the affected vehicles to take out the driver’s floor mat and not replace it with another floor mat until model-specific remedies are developed. Toyota said it expects to begin notifying customers by first class mail in late October and complete its mailing in December.

“As a woman and a MRI technologist at granville medical Center, I’m excited to see how our new digital mammography is improving the lives of our patients. I am also very proud that my hospital was the first in our service area to incorporate the innovative technology of digital mammography. With our new digital mammography system, there’s no waiting for film to be developed and it uses much less radiation than conventional mammograms. Digital images are immediately available and can be shared with multiple physicians almost instantly. Our technologists can evaluate digital images as they’re taken, simultaneously adjusting view points on the system. That means women who choose Granville Health System for their mammograms spend less time in the exam room.” gRaNVillE hEalth SyStEm

Our Opinion

On our new site, please continue to play nice It’s been awhile since we checked in with readers on the status of our new Web site, and in particular, comments from readers that have been placed upon same. Frankly, the behavior and contributions of our readers continues to be a bit good and a bit not so good. Sometimes, bad. We do believe that the most vile comments to have been posted on our Web site — in response to an editorial about rapper Kanye West and President Barack Obama’s response to West’s interruption of young Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards — were not written by someone locally. We have the power to determine the Internet Protocol address of our posters, and that statement — which included both racial epithets and the most coarse of four-letter words — traced to an Internet provider in Indiana, not in North Carolina. So, thanks, we guess, for that. We have had some good dialogue between our readers, as well; instances in which readers have had frank discussions of issues — sometimes contentious, but not obnoxiously so. At least, not obnoxious enough to force deletion of their posts. And, we’ve had some users who want to “game” the system. Since — for now — we are not requiring registration of the reader before he or she posts a comment after each story, some of our visitors have decided to post under different nicknames. How do we know? Again, via your IP addresses. Certainly we haven’t caught every instance of these double- and triple-identity posters. Nor have we even tried. But on three occasions now, we’ve deleted posts that were both borderline in their acceptability, and posted by someone — sometimes minutes apart — using multiple identities from the same computer. That’s a practice we just aren’t going to allow. Hopefully soon registration will be required to post on our site. Until then, we do ask that you continue to “play nice.”

Quotable “I don’t foresee the return of the Taliban. Afghanistan is not in imminent danger of falling. The al-Qaida presence is very diminished. The maximum estimate is less than 100 operating in the country, no bases, no ability to launch attacks on either us or our allies.” — Retired Gen. James Jones, in a statement rebuking a top U.S. commander’s public plea for more troops in Afghanistan as the Obama administration heads into a second week of intensive negotiations over its evolving Afghan strategy. “This was a complex attack in a difficult area. Both the U.S. and Afghan soldiers fought bravely together.” — U.S. Col. Randy George, in a statement after hundreds of insurgents armed with automatic rifles and rocket-propelled grenades stormed a pair of remote outposts near the Pakistan border, killing eight U.S. soldiers and capturing more than 20 Afghan security troops.

Taking a walk with faith The old gentleman stood backstage, behind the curtain. He was a little wobbly, and he leaned against a friend. “All set?” I whispered. “Here we go,” he said. I hooked his thin arm around my elbow and we stepped into a spotlight. Instantly, the noise was thunderous, a screaming, loving shower of applause, filling the building from floors to rafters. It roared on as he walked gingerly across the stage to a waiting chair, his 91-year-old body taking small steps, as if savoring the moment, or being alive. Finally, Ernie Harwell sat down. “Thank you for that vocal hug,” he told the crowd. Someone yelled out, “We love you, Ernie!” and he chuckled and weakly raised his hand in acknowledgment. The Fox Theatre was sold out. The lower orchestra seats. The balcony. The entire upper level. Faces everywhere you looked. But when he spoke, you didn’t hear a breath. Harwell is dying from inoperable cancer. His doctors didn’t want him doing this. His wife was worried it might be too much. But the voice of summer, the voice of our childhoods, the voice of warm nights and long car rides and beach radios and hidden transistor headphones in a

schoolchild’s ear, the Tigers’ announcer for almost half a century and easily the most beloved man in the state of Michigan, wanted to be there. Because it was helping others. And because he had something to say. Nothing but faith The occasion was my Mitch charity book Albom launch, a Tribune Media book about Services faith, charities to help the homeless. A once-homeless man opened the night, and told of how the kindness of one poor pastor — who let him sleep in his home for a year — turned his life around. Now it was Ernie’s turn to talk. I asked him questions, about his early career, about his time with legends like Jackie Robinson and Ty Cobb. He told a funny story about Rachel Robinson getting expensive gifts from Jackie after road trips, while Ernie’s wife, Lulu, was lucky to get “a bar of soap from the hotel.” Then he spoke about an unexpected subject: his ambition. He said early on he wanted success, notoriety, and he chased it from a small

newspaper to a major league broadcast booth. “But none of those things fulfilled me,” he said. One night in 1961, in Florida, something inside him said to go to a Billy Graham service. And there he gave his life to Jesus. He didn’t announce it on the radio. He didn’t make a big deal to the outside world. But inside, it was the biggest deal. The ultimate destination Because of his faith, Ernie is more humble than most, yet humility made him more beloved than flamboyance ever could. I told him his voice was like “going home” for people from this state. “Well, thank ya,” he said softly, the Georgia drawl still a small shadow behind his words. Finally, he spoke about dying. “I don’t know how many days I’ve got left ... but I praise God because he’s given me this time. ... I can really know ... whose arms I’m going to end up in, and what a great, great thing heaven is going to be.” When he said that, a shiver shot from my chest to my fingers. It is one thing to read about belief, but it is another thing to witness belief in the face of death, and hear it spoken in a calm, serene voice. “Whose arms I’m going to end up in.” No matter what religion you may or may not follow, when delivered that

way, how can faith not be a beautiful thing? The evening was getting long and Ernie’s strength was ebbing, I could see his lips trembling. I asked for any final thoughts. “Folks, I’d like to say that one of the greatest honors I could have bestowed upon me is to be here and to look in the faces that I’ve talked to and never seen before, but I know that maybe some of you at one time turned the radio on. And the great thing about a radio — you can always cut it off. ... Thank you and God bless you.” And as the people rose to their feet, many in tears, Ernie rose to his and said to me again, “Here we go,” and armin-arm we headed to the curtain. I had to ask him to stop two times simply to acknowledge the deafening crowd. Finally, we reached the curtain, where a friend helped him to a waiting car, which drove him back to his modest home, his loving wife, his familiar bed. As a sportswriter, I have walked alongside greatness, walked alongside skill, walked alongside power, success and fame. But I have never been arm-in-arm with pure goodness and faith the way I was that night. And while I know it looked as if I was boosting Ernie up, it was, and will forever be, the other way around.

Letters to the Editor Fire Safety Week To the editor:

Chicago’s ambivalence of hopes Ah, well. Let the games begin — somewhere else! Even President Barack Obama’s magic has its limits, it turns out. The International Olympic Committee rejected Chicago’s bid to host the Olympics, despite the president’s quickie trip to make the pitch in person. In the end, Chicago was the first to be eliminated — in the first round of voting and with fewer votes than fellow finalists Tokyo, Madrid and the eventual winner, Rio de Janeiro. Sometimes the magic works, sometimes it doesn’t. In fact, Obama and the rest of Chicago’s powerhouse delegation, which included his wife, Michelle Obama, Mayor Richard M. Daley and his wife, Maggie Daley, and the powerhouse Queen of All Media, Oprah Winfrey, was fighting an uphill battle all along. Expectations were overinflated by all the media hoopla surrounding historic trip, as media hoopla surrounds everything Obama does. But as the final bidding indicated, the insider club known as the IOC has minds of its own. Speculation runs wild as to why Chicago lost. Most of it follows a lot of personal agendas. The negatives that various analysts and critics bring up — crime, corruption and cronyism lead the pack — are hardly unique to Chicago and are certainly no worse than the problems faced by Rio. Rio took an edge in less tangible yet viscerally felt ways. Chicago’s presentation to IOC, despite the Obama glitter, was lackluster and disorganized compared to the colorful and passionate presentation delivered by Rio. Brazil reportedly played the geopolitical card skillfully, holding up maps that showed South America to be the only region left without a single Olympics. This apparently touched the hearts of

the IOC, which likes to think of itself as a groundbreaking force for international development and unity. And how unkind but savvy it was for Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva to use a certain Chicagoan’s famous slogan when talking to reporters to Clarence promote his country’s bid: Page “Yes we can!” Tribune Media “For some Services countries, it is just one more sports event that they are going to organize,” he said. “But for us, it is a unique and extraordinary thing.” That’s more than you could say for a lot of folks back in Chicago, where a Chicago Tribune/WGN poll indicated that, either way the IOC decided, about half of the city would be happy or, at least, relieved. Only 47 percent of Chicagoans favored bringing the games here, according to the poll, while 45 percent opposed it. That’s a fair measure, in my humble view, of an intelligent Midwestern ambivalence, two warring attitudes deeply imbedded in the cultural DNA of Chicagoans when they are exposed to a deal that sounds almost too good to be true. One of these attitudes is the boundless optimism captured in the ambitious slogan often attributed to the great Chicago architect/city planner Daniel Burnham: “Make no little plans.” Burnham brought the world such wonders as the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893. His grand vision is constrained in today’s Chicagoan only

by a healthy skepticism, as expressed in the late Chicago City News Bureau’s slogan: “If your mother says she loves you, check it out.” Visions of Chicago’s great past triumphs danced in the heads of local folks. But, with one former Illinois governor in jail and another famously under indictment, so did the possibility of a grand, overpriced boondoggle with powerful elites stuffing their pockets and regular taxpayers left to foot the bill. Political rivals of Obama and Daley stop at nothing to wage a partisan attack — and in some cases boost TV ratings — by smearing Obama’s efforts to bring the Olympics to the United States. And that’s too bad. Los Angeles showed in 1984 that an Olympics can make a profit, if it’s done right. It can create jobs, boost commerce and build civic pride and national unity. But that requires a sense of shared purpose that Chicago and our national politics aren’t very good at pulling together these days. Instead, Obama and his hometown’s leaders hear calls to scale things back. Don’t take on so much. Make only small plans. Little plans “have no magic to stir men’s blood,” said Burnham, “and probably will not themselves be realized.” Burnham had a point, but small plans seem to be all that a lot of Americans want to tackle these days. Someday, my Midwestern optimism tells me, the Chicago and the America that Burnham knew will be back. Until then, let the Games begin in a place that appreciates big ideas: Brazil.

The Henderson Fire Department urges Henderson residents to “Stay Fire Smart! Don’t Get Burned.” Once a child touches a hot stove, as the cliché goes — he learns his lesson, stay away from a hot stove. This cliché does not take into account the pain and suffering from burns and burns should not be part of the learning process. That’s why the Henderson Fire Department is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association for Fire Prevention Week 2009 — Oct. 4-10 — to urge city residents to “Stay Fire Smart! Don’t Get Burned.” This year’s campaign focuses on ways to keep homes fire safe and prevent painful burns. Additionally, fire safety educators will be teaching local residents how to plan and practice escape from a home in case a fire occurs. The statistics are staggering. Each year roughly 3,000 people die as a result of home fires and burns, and more than 200,000 individuals are seen in the nation’s emergency rooms for burn injuries. The most common types of burn injuries result from fire or flame burns, scalds and contact burns. Burns are painful and can result in serious scarring and even death. When we take extra caution in our homes to ensure that the curling iron is out of children’s reach or pot handles are turned away from the edge of the stove, such injuries are entirely preventable. Keeping our homes safe from fire and preventing devastating burn injuries is a healthy change we can make happen. By following simple safety rules, you can “Stay Fire Smart! Don’t Get Burned.” • Keep hot foods and liquids away from tables and counter edges so they cannot be pulled or knocked over. • Have a 3-foot “kidfree” zone around the stove. • Never hold a child in your arms while preparing hot food or drinking a hot beverage.

on their hands. If all they have to do is debate which way to turn the pillows when they make the bed, how do they feel about the epidemic of belly-button lint? What difference does it make which way the pillow edges are turned? They’re usually hidden by a comforter or spread anyway. — PRACTICAL IN WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. DEAR ABBY In nursing school we were taught that the opening of the pillowcase should face away from the entrance to the room. The reason is when you walk, germs and particles from the floor are kicked up and can enter the side of the pillow, which increases the potential for infections and disease through the capture of microorganisms in the pillow opening. — SANDY IN ARIZONA DEAR ABBY I didn’t think your readers could top (or bottom) the great toilet paper debate (over the front or under the back), but the question about the direction of the pillowcase opening has done it. Most of us are preoccupied with worrying about health care, the economy, the two wars we are fighting, our jobs and putting food on the table. That couple needs to get a life! — JOHN W., LEXINGTON, KY. DEAR ABBY As a young girl I was taught the “proper” way to make a bed was with the pillowcase opening facing the edge of the bed — not the middle. Back then, this was done so leaking feathers wouldn’t end up inside the bed but on the floor. — INGER IN PORTSMOUTH, N.H. DEAR ABBY My husband and I had the same argument, until he explained why he wanted the edges facing out. When he put his arm under me to “spoon,” he would get caught in the pillowcase if it faced in. We solved the problem by making the bed up for “looks,” but when we turn it down for the night, we flip the pillow around. Now we’re both happy! — MINDY IN NEW MEXICO

DEAR ABBY “Pillow Talk in Abilene” (July 24) had to have been written by my husband, Dick. I went looking for him and asked if he had written to you. When I held up your column, he was shocked. We laughed so hard I had trouble reading the piece to him. This scenario must be universal. I make the bed with the pillow opening on the outside; Dick makes it with the opening on the inside. We always thought it was funny Dear because we Abby do many things Universal Press differently. Syndicate Thanks for the dose of morning humor. — PAT AND DICK IN SPRING HILL, FLA. DEAR PAT AND DICK: I’m pleased to have started your morning on a light note. Read on for more — as well as some practical explanations: DEAR ABBY There’s a very good reason why the open end of the pillow faces the inside of the bed. When I was 3 or 4, I realized that placing the open end toward the inside would prevent monsters from getting into my pillow. It has worked like a charm for 55 years. — RESTING EASY IN KANSAS DEAR ABBY I was in the military, and bed-making is one of the things you learn in boot camp, in addition to how to properly fold T-shirts, underwear and bras — yes, folding bras. The mantra for placing pillowcases is, “Seam and Slack to the Center of the Rack,” open end to the left (which indicates the outside edge of the bed). So there you go — straight from Uncle Sam himself. — SHELLIE IN CHICAGO DEAR ABBY It sounds to me that “Pillow Talk” and his wife have too much time

Olympic evidence that we are not alone To the editor: It is a bit comforting to discover that we are not alone. CNN reported that more than half of the people in Chicago who responded to a poll did not want to have the Olympics come to their city in 2016. They did not want the hassle. That means there are other people in other places who do not want to do what is good for them in terms of economic impact. It is amazing how many people in Vance County oppose all efforts to make Vance County a better economic site. Countywide water is one of those project that needs to be done if Vance County is going to be prepared and able to attract economic activity. It is a great mistake to argue that if we do not do it and do not apply for the federal grants that our taxes will go down. The grant money will be given to some community to do some projects. Vance County needs this project and ought to apply for the grants. “There is no free lunch”

as has been pointed out in previous letters, which means that if Vance County wants to have lunches in the future, they will have to make the necessary investments in infrastructure and regulatory conditions that are attractive to industry. That is essential. Grant money, that will be given to somebody, is available for some of those projects we need. It is appropriate for Vance County to apply for its share. Rick Brand, Henderson

Dukies forced to ask ‘what if?’ after loss Want to know why Virginia Tech will once again be the class of ACC football this season? No, it’s not just talented, athletic players — lots of clubs now claim those. The Hokies’ advantage is the ability to respond on big possessions during a game, a habit that has led to 10 or more wins the last five straight Mike seasons. Sosna Virginia Dispatch Tech ACC Columnist showed that capacity again Saturday in Durham, the difference in its 34-26 victory over Duke. “I really thought Duke played an excellent foot-

ball game,” Hokies’ head coach Frank Beamer said. “I think they are going to get to a bowl game. I think they are going to beat a lot of people.” The Blue Devils may have surprised Virginia Tech – who had had outscored Duke 138-17 in the last four games – outplaying the visitors on both sides of the ball and grabbing a 7-0 lead after a Thad Lewis to Brandon King 48-yard pass play. “We weren’t as sharp as we’d like,” Beamer said. “It wasn’t lack of effort. I think part of it was Duke, part of it was us.” But the cream always rises to the top and on the first big possession of the game, following the Devils’ touchdown, the Hokies showed their meddle by going 60 yards in four plays to even the score.

One is enough for Panthers Penalty kick in first half the difference in Raiders’ 1-0 loss By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor

Southern Vance was in control of Monday’s match with Orange in every way except where it counted the most. The Raiders dominated possession and out-shot their Carolina 3A Conference opponents, but in the end, a first-half penalty kick was enough for the Panthers in their 1-0 victory. “I think that this is a crazy game,” said Southern Vance coach Mike Rotolo, whose team falls to 0-2 in conference play (5-3-1 overall). “I think we did control it in the second half, I think we had some great opportunities and made some great plays in the first half.” Possession went back and forth in the first 15 minutes before Southern began to take control. Play stayed near midfield for a good portion of the half. In minute 27, the Raiders were whistled for a handball just in front of the goal. The Orange shot sailed

Eder Burgara had a shot with three minutes until the half on a free kick opportunity, but it sailed over the goal. Southern came out aggressively

in the second half, driving down the field on their opening possession and attempting a shot that went over the goal. Richardson made two saves around the 51 minute mark on a couple of rare Panthers shots in the second half. Joel Lopez-Hernandez narrowly missed tying it up at minute 53, when his kick sailed just wide to the left. Another attempt from Lopez-Hernandez went wide right about minute 60. Tony Tart had a good look at the goal after a corner kick play with less than 16 minutes to play, but the shot hit the outside of the net.

Lions get the best of Crossroads, 9-0 By KELLEN HOLTZMAN Special to the Dispatch

Goals have been hard to come by this season for Crossroads soccer. Monday’s match was no exception, as the Colts (0-9, 0-7) fell 9-0 to Trinity of Durham in Carolina Christian Conference (CCC) play. Trinity dominated possession from the start, rarely allowing Crossroads a window to string more than one or two passes together. The Lions also won the first meeting between the two sides in Durham, 7-0. “They are really good with their feet,” Crossroads coach Brandon Overcash said of Trinity. “They have good ball movement. We did a lot of chasing around. We didn’t stay in our positions very well. We just have to be more disciplined with the Daily Dispatch/ASHLEY STEVEN AYSCUE basics.” Trinity opened the scoring just Crossroads’ Matt Carroll keeps his eyes on the ball as he prepares to gain control six minutes into the match when during the second half of the Colts’ 9-0 loss to Trinity School Monday afternoon.

Colts solid in three-set win over Lighthouse By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor

Crossroads relied on good serving and early rallies and cruised to a threeset victory over Lighthouse Christian Monday. They opened set one with a 10-2 run after scoring 10 straight points, and a 7-1 rally that opened set three gave them more than enough momentum to put the match away. “I thought they played pretty well overall,” said Colts coach Christina Salinas, whose team is 12-2 in conference play and 4-2 overall since she took over coaching duties from Keesha Via last month. “They gave them too many points because they weren’t talking, so we’re still working to keep our intensity up,” said Salinas. “They came out strong, and that was good.” After Lighthouse took the first two points of the match, the Colts broke serve and Britney Anderson stepped up to the stripe — and she stayed there for a while. After two aces from

Anderson and a couple of blocks from Mary Wilson, the Colts led 10-2, and sailed the rest of the way. The Eagles got to within seven points at 12-5, but a Hannah Reig kill extended the advantage to 16-6, and Crossroads took the set 25-15. The teams traded points in the second set, and it was tied at 6 before Crossroads got some room. Lighthouse went on a run, and were behind by one point at 18-17, but Crossroads closed it out with a 7-3 run, winning the set 25-20. In set three, it was Morgan Davis’ turn to give the Colts a sizeable lead. She served Crossroads to a 7-1 lead to open the set. “We have really worked on our serves, and they’ve gotten really strong,” said Salinas. “The last four or five games, they’ve really been on their A-game with their serves.” The only rally the Eagles could muster came when the Colts had 24 points.

The Vikings fall to 5-7-4, (0-3) while the Crusaders improve to 7-4 (2-1). Goalkeeper Aaron Daeke stopped 27 shots on the day for Northern, which returns to Carolina 3A conference play on Wednesday with a home match against J.F. Webb at 7 p.m.

NFL Singletary would like to have Crabtree this year SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Coach Mike Singletary said Monday that the San Francisco 49ers would still like to have first-round draft pick Michael Crabtree play for the team this season. Responding to a report that Crabtree and his agent were about to renew negotiations with the team, Singletary said he would not close the door on Crabtree, even though the wide receiver from Texas Tech has yet to practice with the 49ers because of a contract impasse. Crabtree, the No. 10 overall selection, is the only pick from this year’s NFL draft to remain unsigned. “Any guy that can play and help us win, I would never say, ’No, we don’t need him,’ “ Singletary said. “We need all the good football players we can get.” Crabtree is seeking money comparable to higher picks. He has turned down a reported five-year, $20 million offer from the team that includes $16 million in guaranteed money. The first-place 49ers are off to a 3-1 start without Crabtree, but their offense ranks 28th in the NFL. San Francisco’s passing game also ranks 28th and none of the team’s wide receivers rank among the league’s top 50 in receptions. The 49ers must sign Crabtree by Nov. 17 for him to remain eligible to play this season. The team would have a seven-week window before the 2010 draft to trade Crabtree if he doesn’t sign. If Crabtree is not traded, he would go back into the draft next April.

No QB switch, Titans stick with Collins NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The messages are flying on Facebook and Twitter. Fans are calling for change on talk radio. Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher isn’t budging. Fisher is sticking with veteran Kerry Collins at quarterback rather than switch to Vince Young, looking for a spark as he did in 2006 when the Titans also were winless. And the coach said Monday he doesn’t expect owner Bud Adams to weigh in on the side of Young, his fellow Texan. The Titans’ four losses are to AFC teams with Indianapolis (4-0) up next, and Fisher said the staff is looking at everything. But Fisher said his reasons for sticking with Collins are simple. That’s the quarterback who led the Titans to 13 victories in 2008.

College Football O’Brien shaking up Wolfpack’s defense RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina State is shaking up its defense after last weekend’s loss at Wake Forest. Coach Tom O’Brien said Monday that redshirt freshman Terrell Manning will likely start this week against Duke at the linebacker spot held by Dwayne Maddox. In addition, the secondary that gave up 361 yards passing could have four new starters against the Blue Devils. The depth chart shows former safety Justin Byers starting over Koyal George at one cornerback, while recent starter DeAndre Morgan or C.J. Wilson likely to start at the other corner. In addition, Bobby Floyd and Clem Johnson are likely to start at safety over Earl Wolff and Brandan Bishop. Statistically, the Wolfpack (3-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) lead the ACC in total defense.

MINNEAPOLIS — Brett Favre proved to the Green Bay Packers he has plenty of fire left inside, and in his right arm. Favre’s first game against his former team was all fun for the Minnesota Vikings and all frustration for the Packers, as the graying quarterback connected for three touchdown passes and 271 yards in a 30-23 victory on Monday night. Favre went 24 for 31, without a turnover. He did an awkward body bump with kicker Ryan Longwell, also a former Packer, and stayed poised in the pocket all night. “Lot of fun. It was a big win for us,” Favre said. “We did what we had to do.” The Vikings (4-0) sacked Favre’s replacement, Aaron Rodgers, eight times. Jared Allen was credited with 4 1/2 of them, a career high, including a safety in the fourth quarter that stretched the lead to 16. Rodgers had his first two turnovers of the season, and Favre turned both of them into vintage touchdown passes in the first half. Favre hugged Rodgers, Donald Driver and several other Packers once the game was over. Rodgers tried to engineer the kind of drive his predecessor is famous for, but he came up short. Favre also had plenty of time to throw throughout the game. Rodgers had the exact opposite experience. He finished 26 for 37 for a

The Vikings were relentless in their rush, particularly Allen on left tackle Darryn Colledge, who left in the third quarter with a right knee injury. Colledge moved from left guard two weeks ago when Chad Clifton got hurt. Rodgers’s receivers let him down, too, though. On fourth-and-goal at the 1 in the third quarter, Rodgers found tight end Donald Lee open in the end zone. But the ball bounced off Lee’s chest and onto the turf, as Rodgers snapped his head back with his hands on the sides of his helmet. Pink wristbands, cleats and sideline caps for breast cancer awareness gave the game a different look, but nothing altered the color scheme as much as Favre in purple. This was his sixth game with Minnesota, counting the

preseason, but the sight of the guy who led Green Bay to a Super Bowl trophy and took only one losing record in 16 years there wearing the rival team’s jersey was still strange. This was a highly anticipated and heavily hyped game. Everybody in the stadium stood all the way through the Vikings’ first possession, instead of sitting after the first few snaps like usual. Cameras flashed constantly. Favre was clearly uncomfortable this week with all the attention on this reunion, trying to downplay the significance and stumbling through denials that his main motivation to unretire last year was revenge on general manager Ted Thompson for not letting him come back and compete for his old job with Rodgers. “My statement has been what I’ve done over my career,” Favre said. “One game does not define my career good or bad. I know what I’ve done. I’m proud

of what I’ve done. I know I can play. I wanted to do what it takes to win.” One of the most excitable players football has ever seen, Favre’s history in emotional games has been mixed. In 2003, on Monday night against Oakland after the death of his father, Favre threw for 399 yards and four touchdowns. In 1999, though, he went 14 for 35 with four interceptions in his first game against Mike Holmgren after the head coach took over in Seattle. The Packers (2-2) stuffed Adrian Peterson with their new 3-4 defense, holding him to 55 yards on 25 attempts and even turning one short gain directly into points. Rookie Clay Matthews joined a gang tackle and ripped the ball out, returning it 42 yards to tie the score at 14. Favre trotted right out and took the Vikings down the field, though. He fired a 43-yard pass to Percy Harvin to give the Vikings first-and-goal at the 3, then caught a break when Charles Woodson’s interception in the end zone was wiped out by a pass interference penalty. Replays showed Woodson making minimal, if any, contact with Sidney Rice, but Peterson plunged in for a touchdown on the next play to make it 21-14. Then came an eightplay, 80-yard drive that stretched the lead to 14. Favre found Bernard Berrian wide open from 31 yards for the score, but the setup was more impressive. Favre had six or seven seconds to throw, and found backup tight end Jeff Dugan for a 25-yarder.

Panthers coach Fox has overcome poor start before By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTE — Carolina Panthers coach John Fox’s head is full of cliches and cheesy motivational sayings used to calm, motivate and educate his players. Some, like, “It’s not where you start the race, it’s where you finish it,” have been in vogue in the past week. And while only three teams since 1990 have recovered from the Panthers’ current predicament of 0-3 to reach the playoffs, Fox’s words hold some weight. He was part of the biggest turnaround in the modern era, serving as an assistant in San Diego in 1992 when the Chargers started 0-4 only to win 11 of their final 12 games to

win the AFC West. “We had a lot tougher obstacles that year than we do right now,” Fox said. The Panthers returned from their bye weekend for meetings on Monday. They won’t return to practice again until Wednesday and host Washington on Sunday in a critical game to keep their hopes alive. Fox said he spent last week looking up 1992 record. Quarterback Jake Delhomme said players have been made aware of the Chargers’ turnaround. “John has brought that up,” he said. Fox was 37 when he left a job as Pittsburgh’s secondary coach to take the same job for new Chargers coach Bobby Ross. San Diego hadn’t made the playoffs in a decade and went 4-12 a year earlier.

The Chargers then scored only 29 points in their first four games in 1992, including a 27-0 loss to Houston that dropped them to 0-4. “You don’t go in some place because they had such great success the year before,” Fox said. “So I’m not sure the landscape was a real positive winning type of landscape.” Stan Humphries threw two touchdowns a week later in a 17-6 win over Seattle — whose only points came from ageless Panthers kicker John Kasay’s two field goals. After a bye week, San Diego won three more before a 16-14 loss to Kansas City left them 4-5. The Chargers then hit stride behind running back Marion Butts and a dominant defense that

included defensive end Leslie O’Neal and a young Junior Seau. “We ran the table, so we won 11 of our next 12, and I believe it’s the only team in history to ever do that,” Fox said of being the only modern club to start 0-4 and reach the playoffs. The Chargers blanked Kansas City 17-0 in the wild-card round before getting pounded 31-0 to Miami to end their season. Fox spent one more season in San Diego before stints in Oakland, St. Louis and the New York Giants. He got his first head coaching job with Carolina in 2002. Turning things around in Carolina won’t be easy. The Panthers have a minus-8 turnover margin, are allowing 182.7 yards rushing per game and can’t seem to tackle anybody.

Napa police forward Raiders probe to DA’s office By JOSH DUBOW AP Sports Writer

ALAMEDA, Calif. — The Napa police have finished their investigation into allegations that Oakland Raiders coach Tom Cable assaulted one of his assistants and forwarded the case to county prosecutors. Napa County District Attorney Gary Lieberstein on Monday said in a recorded message left on his media line that his office is reviewing the report. “We are taking this very seriously,” Lieberstein said, adding that there is no timetable on when the review will be completed. Lieberstein also said previous reports of “an imminent arrest” in the case did not originate from his office nor the Napa Police. Police Commander Andy Lewis said police would have no comment on the specifics of the case. Raiders defensive assistant Randy Hanson was hospitalized with a broken

bone in his face following the Aug. 5 attack that he told police was initiated by a member of the Raiders coaching staff at the team’s training camp hotel in Napa. Hanson initially did not tell police who his assailant was. His attorney, John McGuinn, told NFL.com last week that Hanson told police that Cable was the coach who attacked him. McGuinn did not return a call seeking comment. Cable denied the allegations in August and said Monday that he would not comment on the most recent reports, saying he’ll let the legal process play out. Cable said the reports ever since the alleged attack have not been a distraction for him as he focuses on his job. “It can’t. When it all is resolved, you’ll understand why I’m acting the way I am,” he said. “It’s just something I’m not going to talk about and shouldn’t talk about. I’ll let that process do its thing.”

Hanson was also a key player in the dispute that helped lead to coach Lane Kiffin’s firing last season. Kiffin suspended Hanson after the assistant criticized the coaching staff in a meeting following a 41-14 season-opening loss to Denver. Owner Al Davis later reinstated Hanson and Kiffin was fired a few weeks later. FoxSports.com reported over the weekend that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he wanted to meet with Cable as part of the league’s investigation into

Winning Tickets RALEIGH — These numbers were drawn Monday by the North Carolina Lottery: Early Pick 3: 8-1-2 Late Pick 3: 6-8-9 Pick 4: 9-0-7-6

According to the policy, a coach or player can be disciplined for “violent or threatening behavior among employees, whether in or outside the workplace.” The Raiders will be in New Jersey this weekend to take on the New York Giants, making a meeting with Goodell logistically easy. League spokesman Greg Aiello and Cable both said Monday that no meeting has been scheduled.

Minnesota to host Detroit for AL Central title today By JON KRAWCZYNSKI AP Sports Writer

MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Twins seem to think that 162 regularseason games aren’t enough. The Twins will host the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday in a tiebreaker for the American League Central title and a trip the playoffs. It is the second straight season that the Twins have needed a 163rd game to finish the season, a first in league history.

One year after losing a 1-0 heartbreaker in Chicago to the White Sox in a one-game playoff, the Twins will get the homefield advantage this time around as they look to cap their remarkable September rally. “It’s like deja vu,” second baseman Nick Punto said. “Last year, same thing. A lot of these guys have been through this, though. I think that’s the best part about it. That breeds confidence just knowing you’ve been in a position like this before.

It’s fun. We’re having fun.” Why wouldn’t they be? A month ago, the Twins were seven games behind Detroit in the division. Three weeks ago, they lost All-Star slugger Justin Morneau to a seasonending back injury. Last week, they were three games down with four to play. Yet here they are again, thanks to 16 victories in 20 games and four straight to close the season. “Everybody wrote off the Twins, it seems like,

a long time ago, especially when Morneau went down,” said outfielder Johnny Damon, whose Yankees are awaiting Tuesday’s winner. “A team needs to keep fighting and they’ve been one of those special teams for a long time. It seems like they don’t give up. That’s the great thing about baseball. You never know.” The Tigers, who went 11-15 in their final 26 games to let the Twins back into the race, aren’t putting too much stock in the experience factor.

Manager Jim Leyland is putting 20-year-old rookie Rick Porcello (149) on the mound for the start in front of more than 50,000 fans who will make it deafening inside the Metrodome. “It’s going to be the loudest environment any of these guys have ever been in, and I can tell you that firsthand because I was up there for the ’87 World Series when they called it ’The Hankie Dome’ and my wife couldn’t even hear each other talk,” Leyland said.

“But that’s OK. Sometimes that works for you, and sometimes that works against you.” Young pitchers, and even veterans, have been known to get rattled in the din of the Metrodome, which was supposed to hold its final regular season baseball game on Sunday when the Twins played the Royals. The Twins are hoping there is still plenty of more baseball to be played under the roof before the move outside to Target Field next year.

After 1-2 start, East Carolina back in front GREENVILLE(AP) — East Carolina has gone from struggling to alone atop Conference USA’s East Division. The Pirates (3-2, 2-0 C-USA) have won two straight games after a 1-2 start and find themselves as the only unbeaten team in the division race heading into Saturday’s trip to SMU. It’s why coach Skip Holtz told his players they’re in a good news-bad news situation after their latest victory. “The bad news is, everywhere you go, not only are you the defending Conference USA Champion, but also the team currently in first place in the East

Division,” Holtz said. “We know we’re going to get everybody’s best shot. We know everybody is going to be fired up, emotional and ready to play against us. “We need to make sure that from emotional, focus, attitude and preparation standpoints that we’re doing all the little things we have to do in order to be a good football team.” East Carolina had lost consecutive games at West Virginia and North Carolina after a seasonopening win against Appalachian State. But East Carolina responded by beating Central Florida, then followed by winning on the road against Marshall. The offense has

improved slightly, scoring touchdowns in the second half for two straight games after failing to do so in the 1-2 start. Holtz was annoyed, however, by the team’s 10 penalties against Marshall. “We’ve got to get those cleaned up,” Holtz said. “We still have too many of those for being this late in the season. We’re making the same mistakes, over and over and over. We have to continue to get better.”

Pirates add assistant to fill in for Roggeman The school announced Monday that they added John Gutekunst as an assistant coach to fill in

for Thomas “Rock” Roggeman, who is on medical leave due to non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The school said Roggeman went on indefinite leave on Sept. 28. Gutekunst will assist the Pirates with special teams, while Vernon Hargreaves — who had coached special teams and defensive ends — will now take on Roggeman’s responsibilities with the defensive tackles. Gutekunst spent six seasons as head coach at Minnesota and has had numerous assistant coaching stops. Roggeman was diagnosed in June and had coached with the team this season before taking leave.

Meyer: Tebow not cleared to practice, play vs. LSU By MARK LONG AP Sports Writer

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida quarterback Tim Tebow is reading, watching television, attending class, studying tape and doing everything else he was before his concussion. Except practicing. Florida coach Urban Meyer said Monday his star player has not been cleared to practice or play against fourth-ranked LSU on Saturday night. But Meyer added that the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner is no longer dealing with postconcussion symptoms.

“From what I understand, there’s no symptoms and I think he’s cleared to act like Tim Tebow,” Meyer said. “Everything but practice right now. I know he’s allowed to watch TV. Earlier in the week he wasn’t allowed to do anything focused. I guess that’s normal protocol, then after a week, they acclimate.” Meyer said Tebow has been without headaches and other symptoms for several days. He said Tebow was given balance and memory tests Friday, Sunday and Monday — part of the school’s baseline neurological testing — and the

results were “very positive.” Tebow was hospitalized overnight nine days ago after his helmet struck teammate Marcus Gilbert’s leg during a sack at Kentucky. The top-ranked Gators (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) have declined to divulge all of Tebow’s symptoms and the severity of his concussion. They talked about making the athletic trainer available for interviews last week, but it never happened. The most significant updates have come from Meyer, who said Tebow skipped every practice last week. Meyer wasn’t sure

whether Tebow would return this week. Could Tebow play if he receives clearance late in the week? “I can’t answer that,” Meyer said. “Can Tim play quarterback at Florida against a very good defense without practicing? I don’t know that. It’s going to be as we move on.” The Gators practiced Monday with backup John Brantley taking most of the repetitions at quarterback. Brantley has completed 73 percent of his passes this season for 232 yards, with four touchdowns and no interceptions.

RAIDERS, from page 1B fender caught up with him from behind. “We’re playing Raider soccer. We’re doing things in a game situation that we’re practicing, and we’ve just got to finish,” said Rotolo. “We played well tonight. I’m proud of my kids’ effort. I’m proud of the way we played tonight.” Southern travels to Chapel Hill Wednesday

before hosting J.F. Webb on Thursday. “We’re doing so many things correctly and I think that the hustle was there,” Rotolo said. “Hopefully we can just keep our chins up and continue to do the things that we’re practicing and feel good about ourselves.” Contact the writer at erobinson@hendersondispatch.com.

COLTS, from page 1B the Colts defenders failed to clear a ball that got past goalkeeper Tyler Jackson. The Lions pounced again in the 14th minute when Xavier Idriss beat Jackson near post to make it 2-0. One minute later, Bryan Waffa scored on a breakaway to extend the lead to three goals. Trinity’s scoring barrage continued throughout the half. The Lions doubled their lead with less than 10 minutes to play and took a 7-0 lead into halftime, registering 13 shots on goal. Jackson, the lone senior on Crossroads’ roster, had the unenviable task of taming the Lions potent offensive attack. He finished with 17 saves on the day. “He’s got a lot thrown at him,” Overcash said of Jackson. “He has a lot of responsibility. He’s got a lot of pressure on him con-

better in the second half, limiting Trinity to two goals. Idriss found the far

post early in the second to complete a hat trick. The attacking duo of Idriss and Reid Goss on the wings were too much for the inexperienced Crossroads side to remedy. “I wasn’t happy with their effort in the first half,” said Overcash. “It got a little better in the second half, but not to where I’d like it to be.” Overcash and the Colts now have the rest of the week off to prepare for the conference tournament. The last-place Colts will be looking for their first win of the season on Monday against the CCC’s top seed — a tall order for a team made up of mostly ninth graders. “We’ve got seventh graders playing varsity,” said Overcash. “A lot of them have never played before. You can’t get too down on them because they’re still learning the basics of soccer.”

in the second half, instead of cutting back into the defenders, to be dragged down at the Hokies 7-yard line? Unable to move the ball, the Blue Devils eventually had to settle for three points instead of seven. What if Duke, on the next series, had refused a 10-yard penalty after holding Virginia Tech on thirdand-24, forcing the Hokies to punt, instead of accepting the penalty? On thirdand-34, Virginia Tech took advantage of the second chance with a 62-yard Ty-

rod Taylor-to-Boykin pass play, eventually increasing their lead to 20-13. And the biggest what-if of all: 5:38 to play, Virginia Tech on its own 37 and an 8-point lead, what if Ryan Williams’ fumble doesn’t bounce right back into his hands, allowing the Hokies to retain possession and eventually drive for another touchdown? In many ways, Duke did so many things right. Defensively it held the Hokies’ ground-oriented attack in check – allowing only 55

SWEEP, from page 1B four straight, but Crossroads finally got match point, winning the set 25-18. Davis had seven kills, five aces and 15 assists for the Colts. Anderson had six kills and four digs. Wilson had three kills and seven blocks, and Peyton Sudheimer had

20 assists. Kelly Hughes had 11 digs, and Kayley Anderson had 10. The team’s two seniors — Wilson and Brooke Eatmon — were recognized before the game on senior night. Contact the writer at erobinson@hendersondispatch.com.

DUKE, from page 1B By comparison, Duke – needing to respond with a big series of its own after Virginia Tech scored – was three-and-out on their next series. The Blue Devils were similarly three-and-out after the Hokies took a 10-7 lead. Virginia Tech’s ability to step up their game on key possession was a theme repeated throughout the game – the Hokies time and again answered Duke points with scores of their own on the following series. For the Devils, it was

once again time to play “what-if,” a game played many times during the Ted Roof coaching era. What if Leon Wright had been able to hold on to the interception in the end zone, instead of having it ripped from his grasp on the way down by Jarrett Boykin resulting in a Virginia Tech touchdown and 17-7 first half lead? What if Conner Vernon had continued down the sideline for a touchdown to tie the score after the long pass from Thad Lewis early

yards net rushing through the first three quarters – only to see Virginia Tech quarterback Tyron Taylor have a career passing day, completing 17 of 22 for 327 yards. “The bottom line, if we play better, we win the game,” Duke Head Coach David Cutcliffe said. “We did a lot of things that we had to do going in to win the game.” Beamer was effusive in his praise for the Blue Devils. “I don’t think that’s the

old Duke football team,” Beamer said. “I think that’s the new Duke football team.” But until the Blue Devils can shift into a higher gear at the key moments and during big possessions, the promise of future success will be unfulfilled. Meanwhile, Beamer thought the Hokies’ flaws will be corrected. “We’ll get it right,” promised the Virginia Tech coach. That’s a scary thought for the rest of the league.

Congratulations to Eddie Norris, this week’s winner. Eddie not only gets the weekly prize, but jumps all the way up to No. 2 in our overall rankings, two picks behind Sherry Felts. Only two of our readers had as rough a week as Dispatch publisher James Edwards at 4-8. Our esteemed editor Glenn Craven’s 41 correct picks would be good enough for sixth among our readers. The biggest local game of the week has to be J.F. Webb traveling to Henderson to take on Southern Vance. It’s the conference opener for both teams, and both the Raiders and Warriors want this one badly. Northern Vance has had a rough season, but could turn things around in the conference with a big win over visiting Orange. Warren County will play host to a familiar foe, Roanoke Rapids. At the collegiate level, North Carolina will be trying to bounce back with a loss against previously winless Virginia. Georgia Southern will come to Chapel Hill, and these Eagles are no pushover. The Heels better not take them lightly. The big game nationally is No. 1 Florida at No. 4 LSU. Will Tim Tebow play? Can the Gators win in Baton Rouge? We’ll see Saturday. Good luck to all our contestants this week! Georgia Southern! Eagles! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! —Eric S. Robinson

Congratulations to Eddie Norris, this week’s winner. Eddie not only gets the weekly prize, but jumps all the way up to No. 2 in our overall rankings, two picks behind Sherry Felts. Only two of our readers had as rough a week as Dispatch publisher James Edwards at 4-8. Our esteemed editor Glenn Craven’s 41 correct picks would be good enough for sixth among our readers. The biggest local game of the week has to be J.F. Webb traveling to Henderson to take on Southern Vance. It’s the conference opener for both teams, and both the Raiders and Warriors want this one badly. Northern Vance has had a rough season, but could turn things around in the conference with a big win over visiting Orange. Warren County will play host to a familiar foe, Roanoke Rapids. At the collegiate level, North Carolina will be trying to bounce back with a loss against previously winless Virginia. Georgia Southern will come to Chapel Hill, and these Eagles are no pushover. The Heels better not take them lightly. The big game nationally is No. 1 Florida at No. 4 LSU. Will Tim Tebow play? Can the Gators win in Baton Rouge? We’ll see Saturday. Good luck to all our contestants this week! Georgia Southern! Eagles! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! —Eric S. Robinson

NASCAR’s Sprint Cup chase tightens up after Kansas By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

CHARLOTTE — Longtime NASCAR fans deride the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship as manufactured drama that has ruined the racing. Try telling that to the five drivers who used Kansas Speedway to gain points on leader Mark Martin. “I think that’s why they made the Chase,” fourtime series champion Jeff Gordon said after chipping 19 points off his deficit Sunday. “There’s a lot of racing left to go. There’s a lot of great competition, and the competition is as even as I’ve ever seen it.” Nobody thought that seven days earlier, when three-time defending champion Jimmie Johnson routed the competition at Dover. He led Hendrick Motorsports teammate Mark Martin across the

NFL Sunday Wrap-up

Bengals 23, Browns 20 (OT) The Cincinnati Bengals were involved in yet another nail-biter — and it’s a trend quarterback Carson Palmer would like to see end soon. The last-minute Bengals needed a 31-yard field goal from Shayne Graham late in overtime to beat the winless Cleveland Browns 23-20 on Sunday. Not wanting to settle for a tie, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis gambled and decided to go for it on fourth-and-11 from the Cleveland 41 with 1:04 remaining. Palmer dropped back to pass and then tucked the ball away and scampered up the middle for 15 yards and the first down. Cincinnati ran two plays to get Graham in position, and the kicker, who had an extra point and field goal blocked earlier in the game, sent it sailing through the uprights. “It’d be nice to go up by a couple scores and drink some Gatorade as we take a knee at the end,” Palmer said. Defensive end Robert Geathers returned a fumble 75 yards for a score for Cincinnati (3-1), which is tied with Baltimore atop the AFC North. The Bengals visit the Ravens next Sunday. “Nobody’s happy,” said Browns quarterback Derek Anderson, who provided a huge spark in his first start this season. “We lost. Nobody’s happy we went to overtime and played it to the last 10 seconds. That’s not what we’re here for.” Saints 24, Jets 10 At New Orleans, Darren Sharper returned one of his two interceptions of rookie Mark Sanchez 99 yards for a score, Will Smith forced a fumble in the end zone to produce a second defensive touchdown, and New Orleans handed the Jets their first loss. New York (3-1) lost despite stopping the Saints twice on fourth-and-short and holding Drew Brees to 190 yards passing and no touchdowns. New Orleans’ normally high-powered offense, which entered the game ranked first in the NFL, did not score a touchdown until Pierre Thomas barreled in from a yard out with 6:07 left. Sanchez completed 14 of 27 passes for 138 yards and doomed the Jets with four turnovers. Broncos 17, Cowboys 10 At Denver, Champ Bailey knocked away a potential tying touchdown pass from Tony Romo to Sam Hurd with 1 second left. On fourth-and-goal from the 2, Romo found Hurd cutting over the middle, but Bailey reached around and swatted the pass away at the last second, giving the Broncos their first 4-0 start since 2003. The Broncos took the lead on Brandon Marshall’s 51-yard touchdown catch with 1:46 remaining. The Cowboys (2-2) were ranked first in the league in rushing, but managed only 74 yards on the ground. Steelers 38, Chargers 28 At Pittsburgh, Ben Roethlisberger threw touchdown passes on the first two drives, Rashard Mendenhall surpassed his previous career total with 165 yards rushing and two scores and the Steelers held on after squandering a 28-point lead. The Chargers (2-2), outgained nearly 4 to 1 until late in the third quarter, rallied as Philip Rivers threw touchdown passes of 30 yards to Antonio Gates and 13 yards to Chris Chambers and Jacob Hester scored on a 41-yard fumble return, all in the fourth quarter. Running back Mewelde Moore caught a touchdown pass and threw for another to Heath Miller on a goal-line play as the Steelers (2-2), beaten in the closing seconds by Chicago and Cincinnati the previous two weeks, built such a big lead that they withstood another bad fourth quarter. 49ers 35, Rams 0 At San Francisco, tight end Vernon Davis caught a 13-yard pass for his third touchdown in two weeks, Patrick Willis returned an interception 23 yards for a score and the 49ers overcame the absence of star running back Frank Gore. The 49ers (3-1) scored in every way to take command of the NFC West, recording their first shutout in 119 games since Jan. 6, 2002, 38-0 at New Orleans. The Rams (0-4) lost their 14th straight, the longest current skid in the NFL. Dolphins 38, Bills 10 At Miami, quarterback Chad Henne making his first NFL start and the Dolphins controlled the ball for 37 minutes to earn their first victory. The Dolphins came into the game 0-3 despite a strong running attack and an 11-minute edge per game in time of possession. Against Buffalo (1-3), Miami ran for 250 yards and mounted scoring drives of 65, 66 and 65 yards. Henne, a second-year pro, shook off six sacks and managed the game well in his first start in place of injured Chad Pennington. Henne had no turnovers, and he threw his first NFL touchdown pass, a 5-yarder to rookie Brian Hartline. Patriots 27, Ravens 21 At Foxborough, Mass., Tom Brady and Randy Moss hooked up for their first touchdown pass of the season and Baltimore

finish line, and closed his gap to just 10 points to Martin. Through two Chase races, there were two Hendrick cars at the front of the standings and only two other drivers within 100 points of the leader. There was also a little bit of panic that this Chase was going to be another Hendrick runaway. Then came Sunday at Kansas, and Martin and Johnson couldn’t maintain the dizzying pace they’d set in the first two Chase races. Martin finished seventh, Johnson was ninth and everyone else pounced. Title contenders grabbed 10 of the top 11 spots — “There was nothing but Chase guys up front,” fifth-place finisher Denny Hamlin said after — and the Hendrick stars suddenly looked human. There were just three drivers within 100 points of the leader before Kansas. Now there’s six, and failed on fourth-down plays on its last two series. Moss’ touchdown made it 24-14 late in the third quarter, but Joe Flacco’s 13-yard pass to Willis McGahee cut that to 24-21. Stephen Gostkowski’s 33-yard field goal gave the Patriots (3-1) a six-point lead midway through the fourth quarter. On the next possession, with a fourth-and-1 at the Ravens 45-yard line, McGahee was stopped for no gain. The Ravens (3-1) got the ball back after a punt and moved to a fourthand-4 at the 14. Flacco then threw to Mark Clayton, who dropped the ball with 28 seconds remaining. Jaguars 37, Titans 17 At Jacksonville, Fla., David Garrard threw for 323 yards and three touchdowns, two to Mike Sims-Walker. Garrard shredded Tennessee’s injury depleted secondary, often picking on rookie cornerback Jason McCourty, and Jacksonville’s defense dominated the Titans (0-4). Tennessee went 13-3 last season, the league’s best record, and didn’t lose until Game 11. Colts 34, Seahawks 17 At Indianapolis, Peyton Manning led the Colts on four touchdown drives, tied milestones established by Fran Tarkenton and Dan Marino and extended his team’s regular-season victory streak to 13. Manning finished 31 of 41 for 353 yards, marking the first time in 12 NFL seasons he has topped 300 yards in four consecutive games. The first TD pass went to Reggie Wayne, making Manning and Dan Marino the only quarterbacks in league history to throw 55 TD passes to two different receivers. The second went to rookie Austin Collie after a brilliant audible with 3 seconds left in the half. It not only gave the Colts (4-0) a 21-3 halftime lead but also gave Manning a share of third place on the NFL’s career touchdowns passing list with Tarkenton. Both have 342. Only Marino (420) and Brett Favre (469) have thrown more. Seattle (1-3) played without quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and left tackle Walter Jones, who are both hurt, and lost its third straight. Giants 27, Chiefs 16 At Kansas City, Mo., Eli Manning, before leaving in the fourth quarter with a bruised right heel, threw for 292 yards and three touchdowns as the Giants (4-0) remained unbeaten. Kansas City (0-4) has lost 27 of its last 29 games. Matt Cassel threw two short touchdown passes in the final minutes for Kansas City. Steve Smith, who has caught at least one scoring pass in three straight games for the Giants, totaled 134 yards on 11 catches, including scoring receptions of 3 and 25 yards. Redskins 16, Buccaneers 13 At Landover, Md., Jason Campbell made up for a pair of first-half interceptions with two second-half touchdowns, and the Redskins (2-2) scored on three straight possessions for the first time this season. Trailing 10-0 after a first half, the Redskins started their rally when DeAngelo Hall intercepted a pass from second-year quarterback Josh Johnson, making his first NFL start. Washington converted the turnover into a field goal, then Campbell hit Chris Cooley for a 17-yard touchdown and Santana Moss for a 59-yard score on the next two series. Aqib Talib’s third interception of the game led to a field goal to cut the lead to 16-13 with 4:25 to play. Tampa Bay got the ball back after a punt, but Clifton Smith fumbled deep in his territory to end the Buccaneers’ final chance. Texans 29, Raiders 6 At Houston, Steve Slaton scored two touchdowns, Jacoby Jones returned a kickoff for a score and the Texans (2-2), with the NFL’s worst defense, held the Raiders to 45 yards rushing. The Texans were allowing 205 yards rushing entering the game. Houston also forced three turnovers and got its first safety in almost seven years. The Raiders (1-3) continued to struggle, with JaMarcus Russell completing 12 of 33 passes for 128 yards and Darren McFadden finishing with six carries for minus-3 yards rushing. Bears 48, Lions 24 At Chicago, Jay Cutler threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score, and the Bears pulled away in the second half a week after Detroit snapped its 19-game losing streak. Matt Forte ran for 121 yards and rookie Johnny Knox returned a kickoff 102 yards. Lions rookie quarterback Matthew Stafford left during the fourth quarter because of a leg injury.

seventh-place Gordon is a mere 103 points out. Just like that, NASCAR has a real title race on its hands. “We’ve got a great shot at this still,” said racewinner Tony Stewart, who ended an eight-week slide just in time to give Chevrolet the manufacturers’ title while climbing back into contention for his own championship. Stewart sliced 39 points off of Martin’s lead, and now sits fourth in the standings, 67 points out. “It shows how competitive this Chase is,” Stewart said. “Guys that were up front had average days, and a lot of guys closed on them. If you have a bad day, there’s going to be guys that are going to capitalize on it.” That’s exactly what they did Sunday.

leaders in sight — all saw their title hopes revitalized by outrunning Martin and Johnson. So did Juan Pablo Montoya, the only driver to notch a top-five in all three of the Chase races. He, too, gained ground and is hanging tough at third in the standings, just 51 points behind Martin. “It’s what we need to do every weekend,” Montoya understated. There’s not going to be a lot of room for error in this Chase, particularly after Martin and Johnson left Kansas unsatisfied with their finishes. Martin, the pole-sitter, led early but faded and wasn’t in the mood to celebrate his 17th top-10 finish this season. “I don’t think we should be getting all hyped up about the tally right now, you know? We’ve got a lot of racing to go,” said Martin, who gained eight points on Johnson but quickly noted that several

drivers had closed the gap. And Johnson was perplexed by his day. He had a five-second lead over second-place midway through the race, but fell back into traffic after a four-tire stop and never got back to the front. So confident in his team’s ability, Johnson has done a great job so far of not concerning himself with the competition and only focusing on his own performance. So he wasn’t interested in handicapping the field Sunday. “It is way too early to tell. It is only three races in and we just don’t know what is going to happen,” he said. And that’s what the Chase is for. Since its 2004 inception, the points leader at the start of the 10-race Chase has won the championship only once, when Stewart did it in 2005. And he had to earn it, too: Up 185 points over Biffle when the field was reset, his

margin was reduced to 35 by the season finale. In every other season, the driver leading the points did not win the championship. It meant Gordon’s 312-point lead was swallowed up in 2007, same for Kyle Busch and his 207-point cushion last year. Other seasons didn’t have such dominating regular-season performances, but Stewart did have a 179-point lead evaporate at the start of the Chase. Under the old format, there’d be very little intrigue over the final 10 races, and that’s what makes the Chase exciting. “Right now, Tony would be pretty much on cruise control with the championship,” Gordon said of the old system. “So they made the Chase to have a playoff-type system, and all year long it’s been (about) anybody who can win races and come on strong. That’s what we’ve got.” Philadelphia 5, New Jersey 2 Pittsburgh 4, N.Y.

SUDOKU

Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). You never understood the disclaimer that there are “dog people” and “cat people.” You love all animals! Sometimes there’s no better listener than a furry one with pointy ears. Treat your favorite pet to a little something extra. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). That sense of wonder you had when you were a kid returns. That this quality has never completely left you is one of the great gifts of your life. It also makes you very attractive to potential loves. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Lately, you prefer things to be laid out and predictable, but it’s just not working out that way right now. These disruptive forces will pass, but in the meantime, you’ll be an amazing improviser. Someone admires your quick wit. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You know you are loved, but it’s another thing entirely to feel loved. A demonstration of affection will renew a special bond. You’ll feel especially close to fellow water signs, Scorpio and Pisces. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Why do you insist on searching for a ladder when there’s low-hanging fruit all around you? In love and friendships particularly, there are some delicious treats you’re missing. Look again. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your uncanny ability to see directly into the heart has made you the go-to source for advice on relationships. A friend is about to reveal a sticky and sensitive situation. Your perspective is more valuable than you think.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A small run-in with an authority figure could leave you soul searching: Was this a chance event that you can brush off or a signal from the cosmos that you need to adjust your strategy? Only you know. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You will feel highly motivated, and can’t help but bring a great deal of energy and a sense of drama to your surroundings. You’ll be singled out for a leadership position, or decide that everyone should follow, so they will. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re pleasant enough, though you’re not apt to give very much of your time to anyone you don’t know. If they want to get your attention, they’ll have to prove themselves. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In the early day, you’ll be focused on your work and won’t be in a mood to socialize or share. After your work is completed, you’ll once again feel like being with people, especially if there’s an Aquarius among them. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You might wish your conversation was more on point, or you might see flaws in the way you present yourself — you’re the only one who does. You’ll gain fans, largely due to your stellar sense of humor and winning attitude. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Titles mean little to you. You’re not likely to chase after a relationship just because the person has a certain credential. Your decision to prize personality and character over position and pedigree is a wise one.
