Southern Vance soccer bus hit by car during road trip No serious injuries from accident, which causes postponement of game By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor

A bus carrying Southern Vance High School soccer players to a match in Chapel Hill was rear-ended on Interstate 85 Wednesday. The blue Vance County bus was struck from behind by a Saturn, which became wedged underneath the bus. “In my 28 years of coaching, I’ve never been involved in anything like that before,” said Southern Vance soccer coach Mike Rotolo, who was driving the bus. “I’m so glad nobody got hurt.” Rotolo said it took a couple of hours, two tow trucks and flooring the bus accelerator to dislodge the Saturn from underneath the bus.

The wreck occurred on Interstate 85 South near the Redmill Road bridge, The (Durham) Herald-Sun reported. Rotolo said he was traveling about 55 mph, and had not applied the brakes before he heard the impact. “I didn’t know if we backfired, but I could feel a jolt,” he said. Rotolo didn’t realize the vehicle was stuck underneath the bus until he came to a stop and surveyed the wreckage. He said that a sheriff’s deputy, who heard the noise, reported to the wreck, and within a short time more officers, paramedics and a fire engine were on the scene. The driver of the Saturn was reportedly cited for a traffic offense. The soccer match against

Chapel Hill High School, which was scheduled to start at 6 p.m., was postponed and has been tentatively rescheduled for Oct. 15. Southern Vance soccer players returned to Henderson before 7 p.m., and were at the school before the conclusion of the Southern Vance-Durham Riverside volleyball match. Rotolo admitted he was “a little nervous” following the accident because his neck and back felt a stiff. “I’m definitely going to go get checked out,” he said. Southern Vance has a home soccer match with J.F. Webb scheduled for tonight at 6 p.m. Contact the writer at erobinson@

LEAF to weigh 21 local projects

Troubled motel may reopen — with conditions Special use permit granted, but business will be monitored

$2 million in grant money on the line

By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer

By AL WHELESS Daily Dispatch Writer

The panel responsible for recommending projects for Golden LEAF Foundation grants totaling roughly $2 million will meet Oct. 21 to question the initial top-five applicants and hear 10-minute presentations from them. The scoring results from a process that members of the selection committee recently completed were presented to them Wednesday night when they met in the Civic Center at VanceGranville Community College. When they get together on Oct. 21, those on the panel will already have the written replies to specific questions answered in advance by the representatives for the projects. There is no guarantee that those who show up for the question-and-answer session will get anywhere close to what they are asking for, or even make the final cut when all is said and done. Many of the others on the lengthy list could still be in the running for some of the funding, depending on the outcome, according to Pat Cabe, vice-president of Programs/Community Assistance And Outreach with the foundation.

The Zoning Board of Adjustment granted a special use permit for the reopening of the former America’s Best Value Inn, with a list of extensive and strict requirements. And City Attorney John Zollicoffer said the motel operator would still have to obtain a permit from the building inspector and to receive the okay from the fire marshal. The board on Tuesday afternoon cast a 4-1 vote for the permit after taking a tour of the property at 200 Parham Road and after approximately an hour of discussion and questioning at City Hall. Board member Thomas Badger was the lone dissenter. Board member Ruxton Bobbitt, in leading the vote, said, “I’ve never seen anything like this,” a reference to his having served the past 12 years, except for an approximately 18-month period. “What I saw today is a very old building that could be brought up to code and they could legally reopen it, but for me to make a motion to approve, it would be based on a tremendous amount of conditions, none cosmetic,

because you can’t enforce that,” Bobbitt said. Those conditions are as follows: • The motel operator will provide air quality test results satisfactory to state health code levels. • A security camera system will be installed to monitor the entire facility. • The motel will be allowed to use the first floor, subject to an engineerapproved closing procedure of the second floor of the two-story building. The motel management said more time is needed to work on the second floor before a reopening. The top level had been closed off to all but the property manager and a couple of others after a fire. • The second floor will not be occupied or rented until the entire building is approved by the fire marshal, the fire inspector and Vance County’s code enforcement arm. • There must be documentation showing the property is cleared of building code violations by the county’s code enforcement arm. • There must be documentation of approval of the building and the swimming pool by county health officials.

to Fire Engineer. On May 1, he was promoted to his current position as Fire Lieutenant. Turner is also a firefighter with the Corinth Volunteer Fire Department in Granville County. An N.C. certified fire instructor, he also is a state certified paramedic. Turner and his wife Daphanie are expecting their first child in November. Send comments to news@

Students and instructors in the criminal justice program at Vance-Granville Community College recently completed a service project to collect supplies for local children in foster care. VGCC students coordinated the project with the departments of social services in Vance and Warren counties. Donations will benefit children in the foster care system in those counties. The project is an example of “service-learning,” an innovative teaching and learning strategy that integrates community service with academic instruction. Among the items donated by college students, faculty, staff and members of the community were school supplies such as book bags, paper and pencils; comfort items such as teddy bears; and hygiene products like toothpaste, toothbrushes and shampoo. In addition,

Students involved in the project included (front row, from left) Etasha Cheek, Rashunda Henderson, Tiffany Branch, Amanda Carroll, Keysha Towler, Jay Boyer and Derrick Knight; (back row, from left) VGCC Administrative Assistant for Business and Applied Technologies Betty Jo Ellis, Tommy Overcash, Winfred Crawford, Brandon Ray, Criminal Justice instructor Andrea Ferguson, Raymond Dunn, William Yarbrough and Charlotte Hedgepeth. $110 in cash was donated, which will be used to buy gift cards that will be distributed

to the social services agencies. The agencies will be able to use the gift cards to buy

Free rabies clinic offered to Warren County residents Citizens for Animal Protection of Warren County (CAP) is sponsoring a free rabies clinic for Warren County cats and dogs on Saturday, Oct. 17 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event will be held at the Warrenton Lions Club Parking Lot, 249 W. Ridgeway St. Vaccinations will be administered by Dr. Laureen Bartfield and her staff. The clinic is also offered to those with a Littleton address. Organizers of the clinic have asked that the following

guidelines be observed: • People should remain in their vehicles with their pets. A volunteer will come to the car. • One-year and three-year vaccines will be available. To receive a three-year vaccine, the owner must show a valid rabies certificate; a tag on a pet’s collar is not sufficient proof of vaccination. • Cats must be in a carrier. • There is a limit of 10 animals per vehicle.

In North Carolina, if a pet does not have a current rabies shot and is exposed to a rabid animal, the pet must be killed or quarantined for six months at the owner’s expense. State law requires that all dogs and cats over four months of age be vaccinated. Rabies is a disease caused by a virus that can infect all mammals, including humans. It is usually contracted by a bite and is almost always fatal to animals and people once signs of the disease appear.

Senior center plans trip to state fair in Raleigh The Vance County Senior Center is coordinating a trip to the North Carolina State Fair in Raleigh on Tuesday, Oct. 20.

For humans, immediate treatment by a doctor after exposure will prevent development of the disease. Rabies is present in North Carolina. Since people’s pets may be exposed to rabies through contact with other animals, pets should be vaccinated against this disease by a veterinarian or a certified rabies vaccinator. Funds for this free rabies clinic were raised at the Citizens for Animal Protection’s “Pawfest” fundraiser.

“We are in half-deep water up to here,” Sheth said under questioning from another board member, Cathy Ringley, about finances. “We don’t have a way to back out, obviously.” Sheth, while acknowledging the situation is a mess, noted more than $100,000 has been invested in a nearly complete fire alarm system and said he and his boss will overcome the troubles. Fire Chief Danny Wilkerson told board that, “They didn’t cut any corners on the fire alarm system, I got to give ’em that,” and added that the system is “top notch.” At the same time, Wilkerson said the second floor should not be closed without an engineer presenting a plan. The building is designed such that, if one blocks off some of the areas to the upstairs, then one simultaneously is blocking off some of the exits from the first floor, Wilkerson said. Additionally, City Planning Director Erris Dunston presented the board with E-911 records showing there have been 267 calls for service to the property dating back to January 2007. That prompted Ringley to question Simmons about what would be done to relieve the burden on the police. Simmons said plans include 16 cameras and a system in which the doors to the front would automatically lock at 9 p.m., with late arrivers having to check in at a window. And, Simmons added, “I made a ban list” of potential

troublemakers based on a check of past records of motel guest files and said guests would have to be age 21 to check in for a room. And Steth said the motel would have a security person at night. Ringley remained concerned prior to the vote, noting the $45 pricing strategy and the ban list in saying: “They’re not targeting this hotel, this motel toward people coming off of the interstate, are they? I mean, they’re looking at, basically, a place where you go over to Ambassador Inn, you hang out, andthen you party.” The Ambassador Inn & Suites is across Parham Road from the former America’s Best Value Inn. Simmons afterward told the Dispatch said she was pleased with the board’s decision, adding that, “We have a lot of hope” and that, “We’ll do everything else to comply.” Badger afterward told the Dispatch, “I don’t believe what they told me” and cited the E-911 records. “And it’s a dump,” Badger added. “I don’t think it’s doing Henderson any good,” said Badger, who favors condemning the property and tearing down the building. Board member Duane Townes was absent from the meeting. Board member Richard Brand had to abstain because, under the board rules, he was not present for the previous meeting in which the matter was discussed and tabled.

MOTEL, from page one • The motel must have an established rate sheet. • The motel will be subject to a bi-annual inspection of the second floor, with the details to be reported back to the city staff. • Police will monitor the property on a regular basis. • And if there is a resumption of the pattern of numerous calls to Emergency 911, then police will have the ability to declare the property a nuisance and take appropriate action. • The motel management will have to comply with all conditions set by Henderson’s technical review committee, which include not letting the property be an extended stay facility and not allowing cooking in rooms. The Fire Department on June 15 shut down the motel for safety violations after responding to an anonymous complaint about unsafe conditions. The action additionally came the day after a fatal shooting on the property. Police Chief Keith Sidwell called the location “a flophouse.” Appearing before the board on Tuesday were Tara Chand, of Miami and who is the new operator, Ken Sheth, who is the manager, and Eula Simmons, who is the assistant manager. The three said they would bring the property up to code and additionally said cosmetic improvements would be made to the property, but they faced questions and statements from board members. Bobbitt said, “It’s difficult for me to go through that

building and look past a lot of cosmetic problems, issues, air quality, code violations.” Board member Marchita Vann pressed Chand about what he is willing to do for the property and how much he is willing to spend, noting, “We saw mold in there. It needs to be painted. It’s dusty. You have a lot of problems.” Chand said he is ready to do whatever is required, noting, “We have a couple of hundred thousand” dollars budgeted for an upgrade and noting he has spoken with a bank, which he said is ready to provide financing. And Sheth later added, “Please believe me, my boss is never so stingy not to spend money. He will spend money.” The motel, which is located off Interstate 85 and North Garnett Street, was once part of the Howard Johnson chain. And Sheth said he would like to bring the location back to the status of a Howard Johnson. Sheth said the eventual plan is for 110 rooms at a 60-percent occupancy rate, with Simmons saying the daily rate would be $45, plus tax. “We’re going to need something to bring in business,” Simmons said of setting this charge for a room. Badger expressed concerns about the financial plan, with Sheth agreeing, but maintaining no one in the motel business turns a profit in the first few years in operation and noting the need for time to build a good reputation.

Charter school likes Clark Street location for start up By AL WHELESS Daily Dispatch Writer

for even a short period of time, she said, “the repair costs associated with vandalism and non-attention would be very high.” The Vance Commissioners agreed Monday night to have their Property Committee consider the charter school’s proposal, and to report back with a recommendation at the full board’s regular meeting on Nov. 2. “I can’t think of a better use for it,” Commissioner Danny Wright said of the Clark Street building. “I also applaud your efforts and I’m willing to support your use of the site on a temporary basis,” Commissioner Deborah Brown told the charter school officials. Commissioner Eddie Wright voiced approval of their plans to begin with a fourth grade containing more than 100 students. He said that is a good age in terms of helping children learn life and social skills, as well as academic subjects. In other business, the Commissioners approved submission of a $40,000 grant application to the Abandoned Manufactured Home Clean-up Program. The grant would be used to help begin the County’s Abandoned Manufactured Home Abatement Program in the current fiscal year. According to a plan adopted in June and amended in July by the Board of Commissioners, the program would indirectly offer a financial incentive to remove the units from properties throughout Vance.

The plan states that “Measures will be taken to ensure that all demolition debris is properly disposed of, or recycled at designated demolition sites.” It also said “The goal of the program is to reduce the number of properties that pose a threat to the health, safety and general welfare of the citizens of Vance County.” The proposal to submit the application was presented to the board Monday night by Planning Director Jordan McMillen. In other business, the Commissioners approved a resolution to accompany the County’s application to the North Carolina Rural Center for a $40,000 planning grant for a proposed sewer line along Raleigh Road. There is a requirement of a 10 percent match, which amounts to $4,400. The five- or six-mile stretch under consideration would start just outside the Henderson city limits, and would run along U.S. 1 to Kittrell. Also Monday night, the Commissioners approved the Board of Eduction’s request for ADM funds totaling $47,720 for renovation work at 10 schools. In other business, the board agreed to allow filling of these position vacancies: • A Detective Sergeant in the Sheriff’s Office. • A Social Worker II in the Work First Unit of Social Services. • A Detention Officer in the jail.

Officials of the new Henderson Collegiate Charter School asked Vance Commissioners Monday night for use of the Clark Street Elementary School building as a three-year site after it is abandoned at the end of this school year. Appearing before the commissioners were Nancy Jo Smith, chairwoman of the board of directors; Dr. Cornelius Cathcart, a board member; and Eric Sanchez, co-founder and school planner. They told the County board members that the Charter School would accept the Clark Street property “as is,” would maintain it in good condition at their own expense, and would be willing to share the facility with the Boys & Girls Club, which is looking for space. In an Aug. 26 letter to County Manager Jerry Ayscue, Smith said the charter school’s board of directors hopes it will eventually become a tenant Johnny R.

Official: Cooperate on offshore drilling RALEIGH (AP) — A leader of a General Assembly panel examining energy exploration off the North Carolina coast says the state should consider working with neighbors to ensure its interests are protected. Doug Rader with the Environmental Defense Fund in Raleigh said Wednesday that North Carolina needs to watch potential oil and natural gas drilling or alternative energy initatives off the coasts of Virginia or South Carolina. A oil and gas lease sale off the Virginia coast

is scheduled early next decade. Virginia’s state geologist told the offshore energy advisory panel two potential wind energy projects also are being discussed. Rader said it would be unfortunate if North Carolina has no say about projects that could affect negatively the North Carolina coast, or can’t share in profits in nearby ventures.

Hagan backs amendment on Camp Lejeune water WILMINGTON (AP) — North Carolina’s junior senator has added an amendment in a bill to prevent the Navy from dismissing claims regarding water contamination at Camp Lejeune. Sen. Kay Hagan’s amendment, also sponsored by Republican Sen. Richard Burr, passed Tuesday night. It prevents the Navy from dismissing claims until two Centers for Disease Control studies are completed. The CDC’s health study and water model could take two years to complete. Hagan said the studies are critical to prove if the exposure to chemicals resulted in illnesses.

Dell to close Winston-Salem plant, lay off 905 ROUND ROCK, Texas (AP) — Dell Inc. said Wednesday it will close a desktop computer manufacturing plant in Winston-Salem, N.C., by the end of January. The computer maker said 905 people will be laid off, with around 600 to be let go next month. The plant was opened in 2005. Dell was promised more than $300 million in state and local incentives to open the plant. But it was required to invest $100 million, create 1,700 jobs by September 2010 and

maintain those jobs for 10 more years. If those terms weren’t met, the company would forfeit the incentive package. Dell said it would comply with the terms of the incentive agreement. The plant closure is part of a plan to save $4 billion a year at Dell by 2011. In June, Dell sold its Lebanon, Tenn., remanufacturing plant to Genco. In January, Dell said the company would move its Ireland manufacturing operations to Poland, a process that is still ongoing.

Dell has plants in Miami, Nashville, Austin, Texas, Brazil, Ireland, Poland, China, Malaysia and India. It also partners with other manufacturers to make certain products. Shares of Round Rock, Texas-based Dell fell 19 cents to $15.32 in afternoon trading.

My Hospital Stephanie Strother FOR digital mammOgRaphy

“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

Daily Meditation Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby. 1 Peter 2:1-2

Our Opinion

Health care for all — except 18 million Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee Wednesday were pleased that the panel has drafted health care legislation which would, according to the Congressional Budget Office, expand health insurance to 94 percent of all Americans at a 10-year-cost of $829 billion. Congratulations, Democrats, on a job expensively and incompletely done. The Finance Committee’s proposal actually is the closest anyone has come to offering what Democrats say they can deliver: Health reform that Republicans might support, and that covers all Americans, while saving money. The Senate Finance Committee’s bill would not allow the government to sell health insurance in competition with private companies — a key sticking point for Republicans. And the CBO says the plan might actually save $81 billion over 10 years; the only reform plan Democrats have offered (in our recollection at least) that hasn’t been identified as adding to the deficit. But even this plan isn’t what President Barack Obama claims to seek. Those who call for a major reformation of the U.S. health care system frequently point to the roughly 15 percent of Americans who are uninsured. That amounts to about 45 million people, some — if not many — of whom simply choose not to pay for insurance. Most who by choice don’t invest in health insurance are young, healthy and simply don’t believe that they need it. That’s why some reform plans, including Obama’s latest suggestion made to a joint session of Congress in September, would require even those individuals to buy their own insurance, if they don’t qualify for government coverage. And that, Obama said, would create coverage for all, at a 10-year price tag of less than $900 billion. Health coverage for everyone has long been an Obama goal. In August, the New York Times reported that Obama called health care for all Americans “a core ethical and moral obligation.” An obligation that, in the Senate Finance Committee, doesn’t extend to 6 percent of all Americans; some 18 million people. Apparently for $829 billion we still can’t cover those folks.

Quotable “We do recognize that he has a tough decision, and he wants ample time to make a good decision. Frankly, I support that, but we need to remember that every day that goes by, the troops that we do have there are in greater danger.” — House Republican leader John Boehner, in a statement as President Barack Obama has yet to signal whether he is prepared to send any more troops to Afghanistan — either the 40,000 his top commander wants or a smaller buildup, according to several officials. “He has proved himself to be a philandering criminal disguised as a U.S. senator.” — CREWS Executive Director Melanie Sloan, after Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a letter to the ethics committee and the FBI alleging that Sen. John Ensign improperly tried to appease his mistress’ husband with a lobbying job and made phone calls on behalf of the man’s clients.

Comics have caught up to Obama Comedy relies on surprise. “Saturday Night Live” has felt painfully dull this season without Sarah Palin to kick around or Tina Fey to do the kicking. Then it surprised the world this weekend. It kicked President Barack Obama. Even more surprising, it got away with it. Only a few months ago major comedians like Jon Stewart and Will Ferrell were lamenting with slack-jawed remorse how resilient Obama has proved to ridicule. How the comics missed the target-rich environments offered up by his predeClarence cessors. Even the gifted Fred Page Armisen, who could pull Tribune Media off an Obama imitation Services almost good enough to fool the Secret Service, found jokes at Obama’s expense fell flat. Audiences treated the man Oprah Winfrey famously pronounced “The One” as though he were a bank too big to fail, a balloon of hope too big to be punctured. But that appears to have ended after Obama’s failed attempt to help Chicago win its bid to host to 2016 Summer Olympic Games. Like one of those Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade balloons that had snagged on a tree, Obama’s balloon of hope fizzled to earth. It had to happen sooner or later. Armisen found Obama’s comedic vulnerability not on his right, where he is predictably pummeled by certain pundits, but on his left, where supporters tend to muzzle themselves in

defensive solidarity, even when they are unhappy. In a mock presidential address to the nation, Armisen as Obama assures angry conservatives that they have nothing to worry about. “Because when you look at my record,” he declares, “it is very clear what I have done so far — and that is nothing. Nada! Almost one year and nothing to show for it!” Armisen’s Obama then checks off a laundry list of what he has not done: “Close (the prison at) Guantanamo Bay ... Out of Iraq ... Improve Afghanistan ... Health Care reform....” “No,” “no, “worse” and “Hell, no,” are the assessments of each. And what about the left? “They’re the ones who should be mad,” he says, offering another checklist: “Global warming ... immigration reform ... gays in the military ... limits on executive power ... torture prosecutions.” Here again, the answer was no to each. As caricature, Armisen’s skit passed the first test of comedy: it was funny. But was it true? Was it fact-based? And did it make a point worth making? There’s a thin line between truth and a cheap shot, especially in politics where the line is always moving, depending on your audience. Fact checkers give Armisen’s checklist a mixed grade. Guantanamo is “stalled,” for example, and Iraq and health care are works in progress, according to Politifact. com, a Pulitzer Prize-winning nonpartisan fact-checking Web site. Afghanistan has gotten measurably worse, but Politifact gave Obama credit for living up to his promise to send in two more brigades. Politifact, operated by the St. Petersburg Times, monitors 500 promises Obama made

as a candidate. So far, by their count he has accomplished 47 and compromised on a dozen more. After his first nine months, it is hard to call him a slacker. But Team Obama can’t afford to be too sanguine about facts. If there was a point the “SNL” skit makes it is how politics is based less on facts than perceptions. “SNL” often has signaled changes in public perceptions and created a few of its own. “SNL” has a 30-plus history of redefining public perceptions of presidents and candidates, from Chevy Chase’s bumbling klutz of a Gerald Ford and Al Franken’s monotone-speaking Paul Simon (the late Illinois Democratic senator, not the singer) to Will Ferrell’s “strategery”-planning George W. Bush and Amy Poehler’s frighteningly ambitious Hillary Clinton. “SNL’s” message reveals, among other subtle insights, a repressed discontent on the left. They see a center-left president who often seems more concerned with the art of compromise on issues like health care, or inclined to put off issues like global warming and gays in the military, than with standing up for his core beliefs. Obama came into office tackling two wars, a world economic crisis and an overhaul of the nation’s health care system, just for starters. He has a lot that he’s trying to do. Even so, SNL reminds the president, as he pursues what he’s trying to do, that sometimes he needs to remind us of what he’s done.

Rollin’ … Rollin’ … Rollin’ on the vote count It was supposed to be pretty simple. The Board of Elections gets the numbers from the precincts telling us who the voters picked. Our reporter calls the numbers in to us on the telephone — one precinct at a time. We put them into a spreadsheet that does the calculating for us. And we share the results with you, our readers, as the numbers are adding up. Simple. Until the numbers don’t add up like they should. Time was, the election wrapped up in the wee hours of the night and the newspaper didn’t have to worry about a precinct-by-precinct report until the next day’s newspaper. Lots of time to crunch the numbers. Technology now gives us a chance to provide what we call “breaking news” in this business. We’re all familiar with television looking at partial voting results (and those dreadful exit polls) and projecting winners. Who can be the first to say who won? We weren’t so interested in projecting winners as we undertook our online coverage of the City of Henderson Municipal Elections on Tuesday night. We simply wanted to provide you, our readers, with a chance to see how the election was developing as, first, the absentee and One-Stop voting results were announced and, then, one-byone, the results came in from the seven precincts participating in the race. Since the technology allows it, we wanted you to be able to see, too, how each candidate did in a precinct — how your neighbors voted — and what the final percentages were — on the night of the election. And, if we were the first to announce who had won, that certainly would be OK, too.

In the 2007 municipal election, I recall, the tallies were in and the races over by shortly after 8 p.m. This year, it took a little longer. We were pleased to be able to report the final results from the Vance County Board of Elections by shortly after 9 — it was 9:01 p.m., to be exact. The board had told us to expect James Edwards everything to come in Daily Dispatch very quickly Publisher — virtually all at once. It didn’t move as quickly as we had expected, but they were right about it all coming at once when it finally came. We immediately posted the winners on our web site and sent our new breaking news alerts to those who subscribe to our new service via Twitter. Prior to the final tally from the Board of Elections, we had received only three of the seven precincts plus the absentee and One-Stop results. When they gave us the final numbers — before we had the other four precincts broken out — we simply posted the final results and went about securing the precinct-by-precinct numbers that we had promised our readers that would be available on election night. A little “drama” resulted when we got the four other precincts and our spreadsheets didn’t jibe with the totals being given out by the board of elections. It was shortly after 9:15 when we questioned why the numbers of votes were so much higher for the candidates than

what the board of elections was reporting. The only race that seemed to be affected by the vote total “discrepancy” — note the quotation marks — was the Ward 4 At-Large seat. The board of elections had incumbent George Daye beating his challenger Ranger Wilkerson by 47 votes. The spreadsheet we had created looked like Wilkerson may have pulled off an upset. After a call to the board of elections to bring the issue to their attention, we were told they were re-running the numbers. We momentarily backed off the report that Daye had won and noted to our readers that the race was too close to call. At that point, our spreadsheet showed the combined numbers which appeared to give Wilkerson more votes than Daye. Another quick follow-up call to the Board of Elections resulted in this explanation: The earlier numbers first posted for absentee and OneStop ballots had been “rolled into” the seven precincts participating in the election. For example, each One-Stop vote placed at the Board of Elections office in advance of Election Day — votes which were logged as One-Stop votes in the first reported results of the night — was eventually reallocated to whatever precinct the voter actually belonged. That caused spreadsheets like ours to count some, but not all, of the early votes twice. From the final precinct totals we got from another trip to the board office, we found that our first three reporting precincts did not include these “rolled over” votes but the final reports from all precincts did. Thus, anyone following this vote count with a spreadsheet was seeing duplicated vote totals — some

numbers being counted in the One-Stops and in their precinct at the same time. Our initial online spreadsheet had columns for seven precincts plus absentee and One-Stop. You’ll notice that the final spreadsheet omitted the absentee and One-Stop columns. We were satisfied that the Board of Elections indeed had the numbers right. No question that Daye had won, albeit in a very close race. The official canvassing of the vote tallies — scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 11 a.m. — will put the final stamp on the totals we reported online Tuesday night and in Wednesday’s print edition. And we’re assuming the board of elections has gotten it right. For us, it was a lesson that you can’t ask enough questions about procedures in advance. From our 2007 reporting of the Municipal Elections, it didn’t appear that this “rolling” of number into precincts had been done, so we simply weren’t expecting it this time. Next time, we’ll know. It was a lesson, too, in how difficult it can be to report “breaking news.” There’s an overwhelming desire to be the first to report a story in this business. That should never outweigh the desire to make sure we have the story right. Thanks to all of you who tracked the results online through the evening and to those who followed with your Twitter news alerts on your cell phones. Don’t change channels — another election and more online coverage is right around the corner in early November! We’ll be here. The publisher can be reached at

A-Rod breaks out of slump in playoff win over Twins

Lee pitches Phils past Rockies

Crabtree, 49ers agree to 6-year deal SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Michael Crabtree is confident he can play a big role for the San Francisco 49ers as a rookie even though he’s months behind. He will get his chances in an offense that could really use him. Crabtree signed a six-year contract early Wednesday after a drawn-out negotiation process that had some wondering whether the star wide receiver would ever show up this season. “It’s a lot of relief off my shoulders,” Crabtree said when formally introduced at team headquarters. While specific terms of the deal, which was completed around 2 a.m. Crabtree Wednesday, were not disclosed, Crabtree will receive nearly $17 million in guaranteed money, according to a person familiar with the contract. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the details weren’t made public. Crabtree headed out Wednesday for his first practice as the 49ers prepare for Sunday’s home game against Atlanta. “Everybody came to a reachable agreement and it happened,” Crabtree said, sporting a red No. 15 practice jersey and charcoal gray sweats. “I’m just glad I’m past that part. I’m very humble right now, man, it’s a very humbling experience. Just getting a chance to sit back and better myself as a person, as a player, as a teammate. ... I feel like going through that it made me look at the world in a different way, look at my teammates a different way. Hopefully it will work out for the best.” The agreement was first reported by Coach Mike Singletary called it a “fair deal for both parties involved.” The former Texas Tech star was the only draft pick who hadn’t signed — and even rapper MC Hammer got involved to finally make it happen. Crabtree could provide the game-breaking receiving threat the 49ers have been lacking, assuming he can quickly learn the offense after

Philadelphia starting pitcher Cliff Lee throws to a Colorado batter in the first inning of Game 1 of the National League division series in Philadelphia Wednesday.

PHILADELPHIA — One strike away from a shutout, Cliff Lee stepped off the mound, took a deep breath and allowed himself to enjoy the moment. Quite a debut for a postseason rookie. Lee dominated the Colorado Rockies, tossing a sixhitter, and the Philadelphia Phillies began their World Series title defense with a 5-1 victory in their playoff opener Wednesday.

Warriors snap seven-game skid By KELLEN HOLTZMAN Special to the Dispatch

Northern Vance and J.F. Webb came into Wednesday’s Carolina 3A battle searching for a conference win — something that has eluded both sides this season. Webb used two first-half goals in its 3-0 win to beat Northern to the all-important victory. Andrew Pruitt found the net twice for the Warriors (7-7, 1-2), who snapped a seven-game losing skid. “It’s really important, especially coming off some tough losses,” said Webb coach Allie Urbanski. “We needed this to feed off the momentum for the next game.” The Warriors took the lead in the 15th minute of the first half when striker Stephen Hill chased down a pass that

Raiders wins rematch with Riverside in five The first matchup between Durham Riverside and Southern Vance was much like the film Rocky — an exciting, intense match with an ending that didn’t favor the hometown team. Wednesday’s rematch resembled the film’s sequel. After losing the first match by a fifth-set score of 16-14, the Raiders took the Pirates the distance again, this time coming out on top (2514, 17-25, 25-22, 20-25, 15-11). “Much of what you saw is much of what happened at their place,” said Southern Vance coach Tracey Turner. “And I said, well this time, you know like movies have an alternate ending? Let’s choose the alternate ending this time.” Shauna Terry and Treman-

wind-blown double in the seventh. Lee lost his shutout when Troy Tulowitzki doubled in a run with two outs in the ninth. “I had him 0-2 and I stepped off and wanted to give myself a chance to absorb it all,” Lee said. “Then I threw three straight balls and allowed a double in the gap. Maybe it cost me a run. Whatever, we had a five-run lead.” Game 2 of the best-of-five NL division series is set for Thursday with Cole Hamels, last year’s World Series and NLCS MVP, on the mound for the Phillies against Colorado’s Aaron Cook.

isha Taylor again had great nights for the Raiders, and they both set the tone early with strong net play in the opening stanza. With the score tied at 8 in the opening frame, Southern Vance took over. After a Terry block gave Southern a 9-8 lead, they closed it out with a 16-6 run. But all the momentum swung the other way in the second set, after Riverside jumped out to a 7-2 lead. Down 10-4, Turner called a time out, but it was to no avail as the Pirates continued to pile on, increasing their lead to 19-7. A Terry kill broke a long string of Pirate serves, and an ace from Julia Sumner made it 19-9. Southern put some points up late to close the gap, and

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Braylon Edwards’ arrival was picture-perfect for the New York Jets. The talented but troubled wide receiver was acquired from Cleveland on Wednesday and showed up at the team’s facility shortly after practice ended — just in time to try on his new green and white threads and be included in the team picture. “It was interesting getting off a plane and rushing right to a team photo,” Edwards said, smiling. “The guys in the locker room were good.” Edwards said he felt welcomed right away because he was a target of some good-natured jokes as soon as he walked into the locker Edwards room. “A couple of guys cracked on the pants I had on,” said Edwards, who already knows several of the Jets players. “I took that as a good sign.” The Jets dealt wide receiver Chansi Stuckey, linebacker Jason Trusnik and two undisclosed draft choices in return for Edwards, who has 10 receptions for 139 yards but was shut out for the first time in his career in the winless Browns’ 23-20 overtime loss to Cincinnati on Sunday. “I believe coming here to a team that’s doing well with a new head coach that has them going in the right direction ... is a fresh start and a clean slate,” Edwards said. Edwards was on his way to the Browns’ facility at 7:45 a.m. when he received a call from coach Eric Mangini, who told him to come to his office, where he was told of the deal. “I hadn’t any clue I was going to be traded,” Edwards said. Edwards, in his fifth season, is expected to practice Thursday and coach Rex Ryan said he will start Monday night at Miami for the Jets. “I think he’s going to fit right in with our group,” Ryan said. New York was lacking a legitimate deep threat for Mark Sanchez to throw to opposite Jerricho Cotchery, and the Jets believe Edwards will also help jumpstart the running game. “I’ve had to defend against him twice a year in Baltimore, and that’s not fun,” Ryan said. “He is a matchup nightmare.” Please see EDWARDS, page 3B

Two-minute drill Kerr-Vance cross country competes in Kinston From STAFF REPORTS

College Football No decision on Tebow’s return for Gators GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Tim Tebow’s status against No. 4 LSU appears that it will be a game-day decision. Florida coach Urban Meyer said Wednesday that his medical staff told him to prepare as if the injured Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback will play Saturday night in Baton Rouge. Team doctors also warned Meyer that Tebow might not be cleared in time for the game. “It was very simply, ’Plan to play with him and plan to play without him,”’ Meyer said following practice. “That’s day to day.” Tebow practiced Tuesday for the first time since suffering the first concussion of his career Sept. 26 against Kentucky. He was hospitalized overnight, and there has been much speculation about whether he should return against the Tigers. Meyer has left the decision up to the team’s medical staff, but there’s little doubt he would rather have Tebow running the top-ranked Gators in Death Valley instead of sophomore John Brantley making his first career start on the road and in front of a hostile night crowd. Tebow was given partial clearance to practice Tuesday, with team doctors telling him to avoid contact for now. Although one concussion expert told Meyer he should let Tebow take a few light shots to the chest, the coach said it hasn’t happened.

NCAA seeks rehearing in FSU records case TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The NCAA has asked an appeal court to reconsider a ruling for public release of documents on an academic cheating scandal at Florida State. The college athletics organization also Wednesday asked the 1st District Court of Appeal to certify the case to the Florida Supreme Court as a question of great public importance if it denies a rehearing. In addition, the NCAA wants release of the documents to The Associated Press and other news media stayed pending further litigation. They concern a proposal to take wins away from coaches and athletes. That includes football coach Bobby Bowden who could lose 14 victories — diminishing his chances of overtaking Penn State’s Joe Paterno as major college football’s winningest coach.

NFL Young wants to play, not at Titans’ expense NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee fans have been clamoring for Vince Young to be given a chance to play with the Titans now 0-4. He wants to play but not at the expense of his teammates. Young said Wednesday he isn’t worried about what fans might say and has no interest in such questions because that would mean his teammates would be losing. He says he respects his teammates and the team needs to put the pieces together. Coach Jeff Fisher insisted Monday he is sticking with Kerry Collins over the 2006 Offensive Rookie of the Year. Young lost his starting job after being injured in the 2008 opener. Young said he always wants to play. But he said his job is to be the scout team quarterback, prep the defense and pay attention mentally.

KVA, Rocky Mount and Hobgood didn’t have enough girls competing.

Spartan JV volleyballers defeat Cary Christian Kerr-Vance’s junior varsity volleyball team defeated Cary Christian in three competitive sets Tuesday (20-25, 29-27, 25-19).

The Spartans were led by strong serving in the third game. “I’m proud of the way the girls fought back and regained their focus in Game 3,” said coach Joanne Reese. Morgan Davis had five kills, three aces, two digs and an assist. Addison Ayscue had four kills, three digs and three assists. Ann Tooley tallied two kills, four digs, five aces and seven assists. KVA improved to 7-7 (2-3 in EPIC).

WEBB WINS, from page 1B making a mistake.” Webb added its second goal just four minutes later when a Jose Pelcastre corner kick found the head of Pruitt to double the lead. Pruitt’s goal decimated a Vikings team that his been struggling to find the net. “As a coach you think 2-0 is very beatable because all you have to do is score one and you get some confidence and momentum,” said Northern coach David Hicks. “I think with our scoring drought, the 2-0 deficit was big for us mentally.” The Vikings had every opportunity to break that drought in the first half, but couldn’t capitalize.

With seven minutes to play in the first, Tate Frazier’s corner found Byrom — but Byrom’s header found the woodwork. Byrom’s unfortunate luck continued when his stoppage time free kick nailed the crossbar from just

outside of the box. “It was one of those nights if you kicked it from one foot away, it would hit a pothole six inches away and jump the other direction,” Hicks said. “We had some lovely chances. Right now it’s just not going in.” Hicks moved Joseph Falkner from the back to midfield after halftime in effort to push the ball

forward. “We moved a couple of people around,” said Hicks. “I thought Joseph looked like he had a whole lot of energy. We thought, ‘let’s let him run a little bit in the middle.’” But Webb still managed to keep the Vikings scoreless and added an insurance goal at the midway point of the second half. Pruitt tallied his second goal on a cracking shot from center that was too tall for the outstretched mitts of Daeke. “Andrew has improved tremendously,” said Urbanski. “The last three games he has just stepped up and become a horse on the field. And he proved it again tonight with the two goals.” Webb will look for its second conference win of the season on the road against Southern Vance tomorrow at 6 p.m., while Northern (5-8-4, 0-4) will wait to visit the Raiders on Monday at 6:30 p.m.

RAIDERS, from page 1B Riverside called a time out to regroup with the score 24-17. The Pirates scored the next point to put the set away. Southern led 8-4 early in set 3. Durham rallied to within one at 11-10, but Southern held the lead until late in the set. After a long volley, the Pirates tied it at 20 and took the lead with an ace on the next volley. But they turned it back over to Southern when the next serve went into the net. Taylor put the set away with a kill that made it 25-22. Southern got strong play from the back row all night, particularly in the fourth set. Morgan Adcock made a dig on a hard spike that set up Terry perfectly for a kill, which brought Southern to within two, down 14-12. Riverside went on to claim the set 25-20. “I think sometimes they don’t think — they move,” said Turner. “There were moments out there when you can tell when the feet were thinking, and when they were thinking. I like it when their feet think.” “Morgan, I think she hit a zone there. Between her, Ashley (Meador) and Amber (Edwards) — they weren’t letting anything hit the floor. They were squaring up with the hitter... and reading what was happening.” Adcock led the team with 24 digs to go along with a kill and an ace. Edwards had 19 digs, and Meador had six digs, five assists and a kill. Sumner led the team in

She also had 21 digs and two aces. Meredith Moore had five digs, while Brittany Bishop had two. Southern wasted no time taking the advantage in the fifth set. Two Terry kills contributed to the 4-1 lead. The Pirates fought to within one at 7-6, but never could tie it up as the Raiders won 15-11. “I was glad to see they were able to focus and put (the fifth set) away and it not be a nail-biter,” said Turner. Taylor notched 25 kills, 15 digs and a block. Terry had nine blocks, 19 kills and 14 digs.

The Raiders have one game left to conclude their tough two-week run. Last week, they finished 3-0 with wins over Northern Vance, J.F. Webb and Wake Forest Rolesville. Cardinal-Gibbons ended their streak when they won in four sets on Tuesday. Southern hosts another Carolina 3A Conference opponent, Orange, today at 6 p.m. “I would say Orange is a lot like a Riverside. We’ve just got to be more consistent,” said Turner. The first time Southern faced Orange this season on the road, they were swept. But in that game, the Raid-

Yankees rally past Twins in opener

kees postseason debut. “This is what you come here for,” Sabathia said. “It was electric tonight.” Despite retiring the side in order just twice, Sabathia allowed one earned run and eight hits in 6 2-3 innings, striking out eight and walking none. “He got nasty. He was deceiving,” Minnesota’s Denard Span said. Sabathia, who twice got crossed up with catcher Jorge Posada, left with two on after 113 pitches. He tipped his cap to a ballpark record crowd of 49,464 that included actress Kate Hudson and rapper Jay-Z. Jeter’s home run had inspired the big lefty. “The place got loud,” Sabathia said. “Him starting out the game with a single and then tying the score up right back, it just made me want to go out there and get three quick outs.” Minnesota didn’t arrive at its hotel until nearly 4

a.m. and appeared to lack the energy that propelled the Twins during a 17-4 finish. The Twins struck out 12 times. “Guys are tired,” AL batting champ Joe Mauer said before adding, “this isn’t the time of year for that, to be worrying about that.” After a day off, the series resumes Friday night, when A.J. Burnett pitches for the Yankees against Nick Blackburn. New York will be trying to get off to its first 2-0 postseason start since 1999 against Texas. “We all need to go home, get a good night’s rest,” said Twins pitcher Carl Pavano, who will start Game 3. “We’re going to be a little fresher, I’m sure, on Friday.” Minnesota took a 2-0 lead in the third when Cabrera singled with two outs, Mauer doubled, Cuddyer hit an RBI single and Posada crossed up with Sabathia and allowed a run-scoring passed ball. Casey Stengel hit the first postseason home run across the street at original Yankee Stadium, an inside-the-parker that gave the New York Giants a 5-4 win in the 1923 World Series opener. Jeter tied the score with a drive about 10 feet fair down the left-field line. With his 18th postseason home run, he tied Yankees stars Mickey Mantle and Reggie Jackson for third on the career list behind Manny Ramirez (28) and Bernie Williams (22), another former New York star

park. “Had we not been dealing with the wind conditions, that ball would have been hit out of the ballpark,” Tracy said. Werth, who didn’t even see Tulowitzki’s ninth-inning double until it passed him, said the sun and wind made it “the toughest day I’ve ever seen in Philly.” Joe Beimel came in to face Ibanez after Werth’s hit, and allowed an RBI single that made it 5-0. That was plenty of support for Lee, who made sure everyone has to wait another day to see if Brad Lidge gets the chance to be Philadelphia’s closer. Ryan Madson and J.A. Happ were warming up in the ninth in a non-save situation. Just two years ago, Lee watched from the bench as the Cleveland Indians reached the ALCS. He was left off the postseason roster after a poor season in which he was demoted to the minors and relegated to the bullpen. But he went 22-3 last year and was shipped to Philadelphia on July 29 when the cost-cutting Indians purged their roster. “I tried to treat it as

much as a regular game as I could,” Lee said. “Obviously, there’s more excitement with a playoff game but it’s still 60 feet, 6 inches to the plate and it’s the same strike zone.” Jimenez showed off his blazing fastball early. He reached 100 mph against the second batter, Shane Victorino. The 25-year-old right-hander didn’t wait long to mix speeds, either. He froze Howard with an 80 mph curveball for a called third strike in the second. He got Utley on the same pitch in the fourth. The Phillies have been on cruise control for a while, waiting to start the postseason and have a chance to be the first repeat champions since the New York Yankees won three World Series in a row from 19982000. Though they didn’t clinch their third straight NL East title until the final week, it was never in doubt. Philadelphia moved into first place for good on May 30, and had a comfortable lead the rest of the way. Colorado rebounded from an awful start and finished a franchise-best 92-70, including 74-42 after Jim Tracy replaced Clint Hurdle as manager on May 29.

NEW YORK — Derek Jeter got a big hit, just as he did in Octobers past at the famed ballpark across the street. CC Sabathia joined in the postseason fun. Even Alex Rodriguez broke out of his playoff rut. It was like old times in the first postseason game at the new Yankee Stadium, with New York beating these tired Minnesota Twins 7-2 Wednesday night in the opener of their AL playoff series. “It felt just like the old place,” Jeter said. “We couldn’t have drawn it up any better for us.” After Jeter’s third-inning homer off loser Brian Duensing drew New York even at 2, Nick Swisher pulled a go-ahead double down the left-field line in the fourth that scored Robinson Cano from first as left fielder Delmon Young and shortstop Orlando Cabrera made a pair of poor throws. Rodriguez had gone 0 for 29 in the postseason with runners on base dating to Game 4 of the 2004 AL championship series before chasing Duensing with an RBI single that made it 4-2 in the fifth. From there the Yankees breezed to their first postseason win in exactly two years. On a night with sustained winds blowing to right-center at 20 mph, with gusts up to 43 mph, Hideki Matsui followed with a two-run homer into Monument Park on left-

The Yankees celebrated like kids, just as the Twins did when they beat Detroit in an AL Central tiebreaker at the Metrodome on Tuesday night. “Crazy. Nuts,” Swisher said. “Everyone knows I’m a little hyper. Probably the hardest thing was keeping myself under control.” Rodriguez added another run-scoring single in the seventh against Jon Rauch following an error by first baseman Michael Cuddyer, with A-Rod’s drive hitting halfway up the right-field wall. New York scored five runs with two outs. “It definitely felt good,” Rodriguez said. “There’s no questions the numbers aren’t good, but you’ve got to come out and play.” Wearing long sleeves on the blustery night, Sabathia got past a 22-pitch first inning and found a sharp cutter in his Yan-

PHILLIES, from page 1B Some questioned manager Charlie Manuel’s decision to give Lee the ball over the playoff-tested Hamels for the first game. But Lee made his manager look brilliant with a masterful performance. On a day when swirling winds made flyballs difficult to track, Lee ignored the elements and shut down the NL’s second-highest scoring offense. Avoiding the adventures that come with the Phillies bullpen, Lee mixed a deceptive fastball with off-speed pitches, had pinpoint accuracy and threw 113 pitches. “He was aggressive, he had good tempo and rhythm and he handled the whole flow of the game real good,” Manuel said. The hard-throwing Jimenez was equally impressive against the league’s No. 1-scoring offense for four innings, but ran out of gas in the fifth. He got chased with no outs in the sixth after allowing nine hits and five runs in five-plus innings. “Up until the fifth, it was one of the better games he had pitched over the course of the month,” Rockies manager Jim Tracy said. “He was really, really on his

game into the fifth. He had all his stuff.” A sellout crowd of 46,452 — the largest in the six-year history of Citizens Bank Park — rocked the ballpark, waving their white-and-red “Fightin’ Phils” towels. The Phillies were 7-0 at home last October and set a franchise attendance record this season. Werth, one of five AllStars in Philadelphia’s lineup, got it started with a walk in the fifth. He scored when Ibanez ripped a double into the right-field corner. Ibanez’s hit fired up the fans, who screamed “Rauuuuuuuul!” Carlos Ruiz followed with a single to right to make it 2-0. The Phillies got insurance runs in the sixth. Chase Utley led off with a single and stole second. Howard lined a run-scoring double to left that mixed up Carlos Gonzalez, who fell backward into the wall. Werth followed with a drive that hit high off the left-center field wall. Werth may have had a chance for an inside-the-park homer, but he trotted slowly to first before turning it on and settling for a triple after the wind kept the ball in the

San Francisco wide receiver Michael Crabtree smiles during an news conference at 49ers headquarters in Santa Clara, Calif., Wednesday.

CRABTREE, from page 1B missing all of training camp. The 10th pick overall, he also sat out offseason minicamps and organized team activities while recovering from a foot injury, but was a regular presence at the team’s training facility. Before Wednesday, Singletary had spoken to Crabtree just once since breaking offseason workouts in June. Crabtree and his agent, Eugene Parker, met with three top 49ers officials Tuesday to work through his contract impasse. Crabtree balked at a long-standing offer of approximately five years and $20 million, with a reported $16 million guaranteed. Instead, he sought money comparable to what higher draft picks received. “We came out of the gate and put a solid offer on the table,” 49ers general manager Scot McCloughan said, still unsure what Crabtree’s side didn’t like about it. “I’m curious to find out because it goes against the norm. Very seldom do you see this.” Oakland Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, the No. 7 choice, signed a five-year contract that will guarantee him at least $23.5 million. Jaguars top pick Eugene Monroe, taken eighth overall, signed a five-year, $25 million contract that includes $19 million guaranteed. Crabtree shook hands throughout the locker room to greet his teammates. “We accept Crabtree no matter what,” tight end Vernon Davis said. “I think his play will speak for itself.” Singletary acknowledged last month the 49ers discussed changing their offer to Crabtree,

and team president Jed York said in mid-September the team hoped for a face-to-face meeting with Crabtree. The 49ers received a call Sunday that Crabtree and Parker were en route to the area. That meeting finally happened Tuesday. Crabtree and Parker were joined by York, vice president of football operations Paraag Marathe and McCloughan. Hammer, a friend of Parker and client Deion Sanders, also participated. Singletary found out the deal was done when he woke up Wednesday morning. “This is a great day for the 49ers,” he said. “It showed the commitment in place in having Crabtree here. Obviously Michael missed a lot of time, a lot of valuable time, and has a lot of work to catch up.” Crabtree’s contract can be voided after five years with two solid seasons. It’s unclear when Crabtree will be ready after missing so much time, but San Francisco has a bye next week. It’s conceivable he could make his debut in a limited role Oct. 25 at Houston. “It’s going to be a process,” said Singletary, whose team leads the NFC West and at 3-1 is off to its best start since 2002. “Hopefully after the bye, Mike will be ready to go. Certainly it’s going to start small, a small role here and there, figuring out ways to get him on the field.” The 49ers needed to sign Crabtree by Nov. 17 for him to remain eligible to play this season. There would have been a seven-week window before the 2010 draft to trade Crabtree if he did not sign.

No,” Ryan said. “But, he’s going to catch enough of them and he’s going to make a lot of difference.” Edwards has a year remaining on his contract,

but the Jets had no immediate plans to sign him to a new deal during this season. “I don’t want to be a distraction,” he said. “All I want to do is play football.

Mercury even WNBA finals with 90-77 win over Fever By CLIFF BRUNT AP Sports Writer

INDIANAPOLIS — The high-scoring Phoenix Mercury saved their season with defense. The Indiana Fever led the WNBA finals series 2-1 and had a chance to clinch their first title in front of an active sellout crowd that included local celebrities such as Indianapolis Colts players Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne. None of that mattered as the Mercury beat the Fever 90-77 on Wednesday night to tie the series and force Game 5 Friday in Phoenix. Indiana shot 2-for 13 in the fourth quarter, stifling any chance it had of overcoming the 72-65 deficit it faced going into the period. The Fever scored 12 points in the quarter, the thirdlowest total in a fourth quarter in finals history. While Phoenix defended well, Indiana’s stagnant offense helped. “In the fourth quarter, nobody wanted to take the shot for them, so they were

She said this is the wrong time for that. “Hopefully, that’s out of our system and we’ll get to Phoenix Friday and we’ll be ready to play,” she said.

With Williams wearing pink, Panthers ready to run By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTE — DeAngelo Williams was a catalyst for the NFL’s decision to allow players to wear pink cleats to raise awareness for breast cancer. Then he and the Panthers were off with a bye when the initiative began last weekend. Williams will be a week late donning pink Sunday against Washington, while the Carolina Panthers hope the Redskins game marks the day they finally get their running game in gear and record a win. That would be coming a full month late. “We’ve kind of been behind a little bit in the games so we’ve had to abandon the run game faster than we would have liked,” Williams said Wednesday. “We’ll see. Each game takes on a different beast all in its own. We’ll see if we can control the clock.” A year after rushing for a franchise-record 1,515 yards and 18 touchdowns, and combining with Jonathan Stewart for the most yards rushing by NFL teammates since 1984, Williams’ numbers have declined in Carolina’s 0-3 start. Williams has been held to 41 carries for 180 yards and two touchdowns. Williams is getting 13.7 carries a game after averaging 17 a year ago. The Panthers, who last year attempted a leaguelow 25.9 passes a game, have been throwing it an average of 36 times this year — without success. “That’s what we do, we run the ball,” right tackle Jeff Otah said. “We’ve got to start out running the ball strong at the beginning of the game and keep on doing it.” Coach John Fox has attributed the decline in the rushing attempts to falling behind. That was the case in Carolina’s 38-10 loss to Philadelphia in Week 1. The Panthers were in games until late the next two weeks, yet had 41 passes to 25 runs against Atlanta and 33 passes to 16 runs against Dallas. “I can’t call the plays, man,” Williams said. “Whether we’re running the ball or whether we’re passing the ball we have to make our plays. That’s something we’ve been inconsistent in, making our plays, as opposed to a

year ago.” The running game last season took off after the bye week, and Williams would like a similar breakout Sunday while he honors his mom’s successful battle with cancer. Williams, who said he lost three aunts to the disease, didn’t know his mother was diagnosed until after she was treated. “She got it removed and she’s been in remission,” Williams said. “She’s a five-year survivor.” Williams has since done charity work for breast cancer awareness, and in July went to Panthers director of community relations Riley Fields about lobbying the league to let players wear pink cleats. The NFL had already planned to have pink-wrapped goalposts, wristbands and gloves, but hadn’t approved pink shoes. The NFL decided to allow five or six players per team to wear pink cleats over two games. Williams and receiver Muhsin Muhammad, whose mother and mother-in-law are breast cancer survivors, are among the Panthers who will wear pink Sunday. “She was flipping through the channels this weekend and she was calling me every time she saw somebody in pink,” Williams said of his mother. “It meant a lot to her, so I know it meant a lot to a lot of the cancer survivors and families out there.” Wearing pink and facing the Redskins’ suspect run defense would seem to be the perfect platform for Williams and Carolina to get out of their running funk. The Redskins rank 22nd in the league against the run, and the Panthers would like to take pressure off quarterback Jake Delhomme, who has seven interceptions and two lost fumbles. “We can’t throw a 30yard or 40-yard bomb and on the next play we have a fumble or a pick or we jump offsides or do something to push us back 10 or 15 yards,” Williams said. “We’ve just got to be consistent at what we do. “It’s not whether we run the ball more or less or that we pass the ball more or less. It’s just that we’re not making our plays on a consistent basis.”

Catchings shot 11-for-17 and Ebony Hoffman scored 17 points on 7-for-10 shooting. The rest of the team shot 11-for-44. All-Star Katie Douglas, who was hoping to celebrate a clinching win in her hometown, scored seven points on 2-for-14 shooting. “I thought Katie got some great looks, looks she had been knocking down from the 3-point line to the

rim,” Indiana coach Lin Dunn said. “Maybe toward the end, she passed up some shots because she had missed them.” Indiana’s bench, which both coaches had said was the reason the Fever were leading the series, struggled on Wednesday. The Fever bench shot a combined 2-for-16 from the field. Indiana rookie reserve Briann January, whose quickness had been a matchup nightmare for the Mercury, shot 1-for-9 and finished with eight points. Phoenix’s Diana Taurasi said stopping January was a key. “In these games, we’ve struggled when everyone has gotten their points, especially Briann when she comes in and changes the game,” Taurasi said. “Sometimes you focus on certain things and you get them done.” Phoenix’s offense was in tune as usual. Cappie Pondexter scored 22 points, Penny Taylor added 17 points and Taurasi and Smith each scored 16.

the third quarter. Indiana trimmed its deficit to 72-68 on a steal and layup by Catchings, but the Fever went cold and the Mercury pulled away with a 12-2 spurt. A 3-pointer by Taylor made it 84-70 with 2:33 to go. Dunn was disappointed to lose at home, but focused on the fact that her team still could win the championship. “They had to win,” Dunn said of the Mercury. “They had to do it the hard way. Now, we’ve got to go out there and do it the hard way, too. The only situation we’ve got here is that we’re tied.” Taurasi was glad to earn another chance, but she wouldn’t promise a victory on Friday. “I’m going to guarantee that we’re going to come out and leave it all on the floor,” she said. “I’m going to guarantee that the minute the game ends, we’re going to be spent physically and emotionally — and hopefully we’re holding the trophy.”

The Mercury shot 10for-24 from 3-point range. Phoenix felt Indiana controlled the tempo and slowed it down the past two games, but the Mercury felt they regained control on Wednesday. “Our strength all year has been in our confidence in our attack, and I felt we got that back,” Taylor said. “We were playing with confidence and attacking every single time down floor, and that’s hard to defend for 40 minutes.” Phoenix shot 72 percent from the field in the first quarter to jump out to a 33-22 lead. The Fever held the Mercury to 16 points in the second quarter and cut their deficit to 49-47 at the half. Indiana tied the score at 59 on a layup by Catchings with 4:30 left in the third quarter, but Phoenix went on a quick 6-0 run to force a timeout and put the fans, who had been standing in anticipation of a Fever lead, back in their seats.

Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). Aristotle said virtue is its own reward. Then again, he never worked at your job. Fear not, your talent and initiative are rare, and you are about to be recognized for the valuable worker you are. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have excellent taste, and it would be a shame not to indulge it. So instead of a half-gallon of cheap ice cream, go for the pint of premium. Concentrated pleasures bring more zest to living. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re not bored, though you may be just a bit under-challenged. Now is not the time to strike out toward the unknown, but you can use that overactive imagination of yours to breathe a little more life into your daily activities. CANCER (June 22-July 22). A recent disappointment is about to be offset by a very pleasant surprise. You’ll forget about the past because the present is so rich with opportunity. A Gemini figures into the fun. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have the stamina of a world-class athlete, though your task may not be a physical one. Your commitment and strength of character propel you forward. A weaker person would have quit ages ago. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Just when you think you’ve hurdled every obstacle, your next challenge comes into focus. It’s a doozy. There’s no time to think, so remain fearless and rely on your instincts.





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





You’ll be brilliant. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A family quarrel between two beloved members forces you to intercede. Thankfully, your ability to see both sides of an issue has made you a natural peacemaker. You could have been an ambassador! SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll cash in on that stack of karma chips that has been steadily growing over the past few months. Your cheerful disposition is only one reason why good things happen to you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll have more help than you need or want. Be patient with colleagues, even if you think they are slowing down the process. You’re facilitating their education. Think of this as a training session. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). As you read this horoscope right now, five people are thinking about you. Four of them are either close friends or family. One is someone you don’t know as well as you’d like to. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Think of a book you read years ago that had a significant impact on you. Consider reading it again. It might be a helpful way to reconnect with your core values, which are being tested right now. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Take care to channel your passion in a mature way, and it will draw in just the thing you want. Ward against all forms of impatience, including frustration. Remain powerfully calm.
