Moonshine found in mountains 929 gallons one of biggest busts, N.C. official says; man, 63, arrested WILKESBORO (AP) — North Carolina authorities say they have found 929 gallons of moonshine under a shed in the mountains. State Alcohol Law Enforcement officials say 63-year-old Roger Lee Nance of Wilkesboro was arrested Wednesday on charges including possession of non-tax paid liquor for the purpose of sell. The director of the agency says it’s one of the biggest mountain busts he can remember. Crime Control and Public Safety spokeswoman Patty McQuillan says Nance stored moonshine in different-shaped containers under a shed in his backyard and was arrested following a two-month investigation. A number listed for Nance was disconnected and a woman who answered another number identified herself as Nance’s daughter-in-law and said she had no comment.

Donham: Public safety study in Dec. Release of report will come after Nov. 3 municipal election in Oxford By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer
OXFORD — Residents will have to wait until near the end of the year to see the outcome of a $40,000 study of public safety. “It is looking like it will probably (be) released in December,” City Manager Mark Donham said when asked in an e-mail by the Dispatch about when the document would be made available to citizens and the press. “This is an important study in
many ways and it is important to obtain the best information we can to make the best decisions,” Donham said in a follow-up e-mail question about why Donham the report would not be available until December. “Our plan is to release the information and study when it is ready and we are ready for (a) full and informed discussion,” Donham said.
Donham additionally said that he believes Police Chief and Acting Fire Chief John Wolford “has done an excellent job working with and managing our firefighters and I feel confident we are prepared to provide the services that are needed.” The International City/County Management Association was hired to conduct the study. Donham on July 23 told a joint session of four City Commission committees that he would be off for a week, but that he and

OXFORD — Granville County’s government is seeking a $500,000 grant from the N.C. Rural Center to help fund a proposed project to pipe reclaimed water from Oxford’s Wastewater Treatment Alligood Plant to irrigate the playing fields at the Granville Athletic Park. The County Commission authorized the request for the greenbacks earlier this week after County Manager Brian Alligood told the panel, “I’m not looking
at giving you any illusion that we are looking to fund that through any county money.” The total cost of the project is approximately $2.2 million, with the county’s next step being to ask the N.C. Clean Water Management Trust Fund for additional help. “Unless we have significant grant funding for this project, I don’t see it advancing because we just are not in a budget situation where we could do that,” Alligood said. Still, Alligood said this is worth a shot because the proposal is unique. The Granville Athletic Park is located off Belltown Road southwest of Oxford. And the park staff has had difficulty maintaining the site for guests in times of parched conditions. The park’s water is provided by wells and a pair of small, private Please see GRANVILLE, page 3A

Alien invaders — of the six-legged variety — have arrived in Vance Co. Yes, it’s true. Alien invaders have arrived in Vance County. They have six legs, two antennae, and a mean stinger. These vicious creatures are known as fire ants, and they are spreading. Fire ants have been slowly making their way across North Carolina for decades, and like Japanese beetles and kudzu, they are here to stay.

yellow-jackets, will attack en-masse if disturbed. Their attack weapon is a stinger at the end of the abdomen, just like bees and wasps (to which ants are closely related). One sting is unpleasant enough, but should you stumble upon a nest, the unpleasantness is magnified. As with bee stings, some people may be allergic and require medical attention. Managing them is not overly difficult. There are two basic approaches — poison baits and contact poisons. Contact poisons should be used when a quick kill is needed, such as when a mound is found in a high traffic area (e.g., next to a sidewalk). Contact poisons are available in either liquid or granular form. The pesticide is mixed with water, then sprinkled over the mound with a watering can (although some granular products are scattered over the mound and watered in). The key
to success is killing the queen, which may be several inches below the surface. You have to use enough water so that the poison gets down to her level. Baits are also effective, but slower acting. The ants consume the bait when foraging, then carry it back to the nest and distribute it to other ants. It may take a couple of days for the ants to be killed off. Baits can be used to treat individual mounds, or can be broadcast over an area with multiple mounds. Baits work best under specific temperature and moisture conditions. Otherwise, the bait turns rancid and is unpalatable to the ants. Before applying, make sure the ants are active by placing a cheese puff or potato chip near the mound, which should be consumed in less than an hour. When using any pesticide, read the instructions and follow them. Disturbing the mounds

by, for example, kicking or spraying with water will only cause them to pack up and move to a new spot in your yard. The word “irresponsible” is one of the more polite terms that comes to mind when I hear of people pouring gasoline onto mounds. You are likely to only kill some of the ants, allowing the remaining workers to move the queen. You will be left with dead grass, contaminated soil, and the same mound in a new spot. Most importantly, avoid stepping on mounds, especially in public. Doing so causes an irresistible urge to disrobe and jump around while swatting at your legs. At least, that’s what I hear, ‘cause it’s never happened to me. Paul McKenzie, horticulture extension agent for Vance and Warren counties, can be reached at (252) 438-8188 or (252) 257-3640.

Henderson police have charged a man with trafficking cocaine after evidence was uncovered during a traffic stop Thursday. A press release from Chief Keith L. Sidwell of the HPD reports that
what we’ll do is this: Probably we’ll spend August kind of going through committee and seeing how the committee wants to deal with it. And then probably in September we’ll bring something forward.” Donham was referring to the commission’s Public Safety Committee, which is chaired by Mayor Pro Tem Howard Herring and includes Commissioners Steve Powell and Bob Williford. The commission majority on Jan. 13 gave Donham, who was hired in May 2008, the go-ahead for the study. Commissioner Walter Cantley cast the lone dissenting vote, citing concern about the impact on municipal finances. Commissioner Bob Shope was absent for personal reasons. Frank Strickland called for delaying the hiring of the association because he

believed Oxford could do a self study. Strickland, who is chief of campus police at Meredith College in Raleigh, is opposing Mayor Al Woodlief in the Nov. 3 Oxford municipal election contest. Powell on Oct. 1 additionally entered the contest for the top position as a write-in candidate. Powell at the end of July had stated his intention not to seek re-election to the commission. Strickland unsuccessfully challenged Woodlief in 2005 and in 2007. And Strickland has repeatedly called for the resignation of Woodlief, has called for Wolford to step aside and had called for the ouster of Tommy Marrow when he was Oxford’s city manager. Supporters of the public safety study, led by Herring, have cited the Oxford Park residential area, the annexation of Rollingwood subdivision
agricultural ponds across Belltown Road from the park. The ponds are fed by surface water runoff. “We probably lost $40,000 or $50,000 worth of turf grass because we didn’t have enough water in the ponds out there to irrigate our fields,” Alligood told the commissioners, a reference to the drought of 2007. The county obtained a $25,000 grant from the Rural Center for a study conducted by McGill Associates. The Rural Center helps develop economic strategies to improve the quality of life in the Tar Heel State. The two options were an extension of Oxford’s municipal water system or having the reclaimed water system. The study recommended the latter, with Alligood saying the plan is for reclaimed water to
be pumped from Oxford’s Wastewater Treatment Plant through additional treatment at the plant site. The plant, which is located just off the Interstate 85/N.C. 96 interchange, was dedicated in May 2007 at the same location as the old one. The park is located down Belltown Road from the I-85/U.S. 15 interchange. And Phase II of the park was dedicated at the start of May of this year. Phase II, in addition to a multi-specialty facility, includes a pair of lighted fields for baseball and a pair of lighted fields for soccer. Two final projects of Phase II were an outdoor amphitheater to accommodate between 125-150 people and a pump house for a water spray park. Phase I of the park is

and the construction of the Walmart Supercenter and the Triangle North Granville business park. The Supercenter opened on Sept. 16. And the city’s No. 2 elected official has said the location and cost of a second fire station additionally was a factor in his concluding that there ought to be a professional evaluation of public safety. The present fire station was built in 1993 and is located at 112 E. McClanahan St., just northeast of the central business district. And there is the additional question about the fire chief position because of Lanny Dillehay’s service to the Fire Department having ended on Jan. 16. After Dillehay’s departure, Donham was asked by the Dispatch whether he was going to start a search process for Dillehay’s replacement and when he wanted to have
somebody aboard. Donham said his plan was to wait until after the association provided details from the study of public safety before making a decision. During an Oct. 1 forum of Oxford municipal candidates, Strickland cited the lack of a professional fire chief since Dillehay’s departure. “And that, to me, is a very important issue in this election,” Strickland said. “And I will fight for that.” Danny Currin, a businessman seeking election to the commission, told the forum audience that one of his objectives would be for Oxford to have a fire chief, noting both the departure of Dillehay and the retirement of Assistant Fire Chief Butch Ball. Currin was a volunteer firefighter from 1975-2001.

the vote and emphasizing this would be a plus for the wastewater treatment plant. Commissioner Dave Currin was absent for personal reasons.

Some Dell money can’t be recouped By EMERY P. DALESIO AP Business Writer
RALEIGH — North Carolina politicians wary they may be blamed for a boondoggle have assured that taxpayer money that helped lure a massive Dell Inc. computer assembly plant to North Carolina will be recovered. But millions of dollars spent on road upgrades and worker training may never come back after the plant near Winston-Salem shuts down in January. Dell announced Wednesday, four years and two days after its grand opening, 905 workers will lose their jobs when its desktop computer manufacturing plant closes. The vast majority of the tax breaks, cash grants and other promises worth up to $318 million that lured Dell was tied to the company meeting milestones for jobs created and money invested in the project. The company got the potentially rich deal by seeming to offer steady assembly work paying an average of $14 an hour for hundreds of dislocated furniture and tobacco workers in central North Carolina. State and local officials have stressed their contracts include provisions forcing
Dell to repay big chunks of money. “We made it very clear to them (Dell officials), and they already understood it quite frankly, that every red cent of incentives money had to come back to the people of North Carolina,” Gov. Beverly Perdue said this week. Winston-Salem Mayor Allen Joines said since the plant only operated for four years, the city’s contract spells out that Dell will repay all $15.5 million in upfront city spending. That includes $7 million for the 120-acre plant site Dell now owns, $8.5 million to clear and prepare the land before construction, and forgone city property taxes. “We will continue to comply with the agreements that were structured. If there is money to be repaid we will,” Dell spokesman David Frink assured Friday. But about $18 million in public money spent to help Dell gear up appears not to be repaid. A preliminary estimate by the state Commerce Department this week indicates Dell may have received about $3 million in tax breaks for meeting early hiring and investment goals. An agency spokeswoman was unable to offer more specific details Friday.
The state Transportation Department spent about $9.3 million widening roads and upgrading interchanges to accommodate the plant and traffic resulting from it, DOT spokeswoman Greer Beaty said. The state spent $3.6 million to train workers for the Dell plant, while the Golden LEAF fund provided another $1.3 million to screen about 8,000 job seekers and help train about 1,200 hired to work at the plant. The fund, which uses part of North Carolina’s share of payments from a cigarette industry lawsuit to encourage economic growth, is likely to seek that money back, foundation president Dan Girlish said. But improved worker skills represent “an investment that will continue to benefit individuals and employers” after Dell is gone, Assistant Commerce Secretary Kathy Nil said. Plant workers have declined to discuss their pending unemployment, fearing that if they were identified by reporters they would lose their severance packages and other benefits. Dell spokesman Frink said only that all employees sign a confidentiality agreement when they join the company.

Daily Meditation Give unto the Lord, O ye mighty, give unto the Lord glory and strength. Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. Psalm 29:1-2
Honored as the ‘anti-Bush’ We can already see the “Saturday Night Live” skit. Fred Armisen as Barack Obama dials the White House phone. In a split-screen, gueststar appearance, former cast member Will Ferrell as George W. Bush answers. “George! It’s Barack!” Armisen says. “Did you know people were handing out global awards and a cash prize of more than a million dollars just for not being you?” The real Barack Obama on Friday received the humbling and surprising news that he was the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate. “I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many transformative figures that have been honored by this prize,” Obama said in response. Welcome to the club. It isn’t that Obama is not the sort of person who wouldn’t or couldn’t eventually win a Nobel Peace Prize. It’s just that everybody else who has won the prize has, well, finished doing something first. Obama has been chosen on expectations. Obama’s charisma and unproven plans are plenty for the prize committee, and for others around the world who are glad to bestow the award upon our president because — even in the words of those who presented the honor — Obama isn’t George W. Bush. “Those who were in support of Bush in his belief of war solving problems … probably won’t be happy,” said Aagot Valle, a committee member and lawmaker in Norway’s Socialist Left party. She said the award should show the committee’s “support and a commitment for Obama.” After all, the “not George Bush” criteria has been good enough before. Ex-U.S. President Jimmy Carter won the prize in 2002, when the Nobel Committee said Carter’s selection should serve as “a kick in the leg” to Bush for his buildup toward war in Iraq. In 2007, Al Gore, former vice president and loser of the 2000 presidential election to Bush, was honored for his campaign to raise awareness about global warming, a phenomenon that Bush long denied. Italian historian Massimo Teodori agreed with the choice. “The prize is well deserved after the Bush years, which had antagonized the rest of the world,” he said. Which provides an interesting study in perceptions. After all, Obama has yet to close the Guantanamo Bay holding facility for terrorism suspects as he promised, still has U.S. troops in Iraq (though the numbers are declining), has already ordered 21,000 new troops into Afghanistan and is considering a request for 40,000 more, and his administration has even defended some Bush-era surveillance and intelligence programs that Democrats decried as unconstitutional for years. That truth — and irony — hasn’t escaped even a teenager in Afghanistan. “I don’t think Obama deserves this. I don’t know who’s making all these decisions,” said Ahmad Shabir, an 18-year-old student in Kabul. “The prize should go to someone who has done something for peace and humanity. Since he (has been) the president, I don’t see any change in U.S. strategy in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.” With anywhere from three to seven more years in office to go, it is possible that Obama’s legacy will indeed be one of ending the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, reducing nuclear arms (he’s agreed to cutbacks in U.S. and Russian arsenals but hasn’t started scrapping any nukes and can’t seem to stop Iran from getting its own), and better relations with other nations. But Obama hasn’t actually done a single one of those things yet. And the Nobel committee admits it. “Some people say, and I understand it, isn’t it premature?” said Nobel Committee Chairman Thorbjoern Jagland. “… Well I’d say then that it could be too late to respond three years from now. It is now that we have the opportunity to respond — all of us.” What Jagland means — in no uncertain terms — is that waiting to see whether Obama accomplishes anything might result in finding out that he didn’t. And wouldn’t denying Obama a Nobel Prize because the free world didn’t actually respond to his leadership of it just be shame?
My mother gave me six months to get married. Or else. You must understand that my mother is not one of those meddling mothers. No, my ma is hands-off with her adult kids. She leaves us be until she sees one headed for a cliff. Thus, her first call about three months back. “You have six months to marry!” she said. I can’t fault her for her concern. She knows single men Tom can be knuckleheads — Purcell that we don’t Distributed by take care of C agle Cartoons ourselves as we should. The statistics bear it out. Married men are physically and emotionally healthier. They avoid risky behavior. They live longer. They earn more. Married men are much less likely to wake up in a pile of dirty laundry still clutching the tequila bottle they began drinking from just before the party broke up. Mark Twain found tremendous happiness in his marriage. He wrote that there is no greater beauty and sweetness than the closeness of a husband and wife who adore each other, and that is what I long for. The fact is, marriage is good for everyone. Married people
produce happier, healthier children. Marriage produces stable, thriving communities. Marriage has way more upsides than downsides. Thus, my mother has been phoning me regularly. “You have five months, one week, four days, two hours and 12 minutes to get married!” But, ma, I try to explain, the world is so complex these days. It’s not like the old days when you got a job, worked 35 years, then retired. The world is moving at light speed. It’s much harder to find a woman you can stay with forever. “You have four months, two weeks, six days, 12 hours and three minutes!” But, ma, I say, what’s the hurry? Being a fellow in his 40s isn’t like it was with your generation. Fortyish is the new thirtyish! More and more people are marrying and starting families in their 40s and 50s. “You have three months, three weeks, five days, 18 hours and 12 minutes!” But, ma, I say, fewer people marry these days. In 1970, close to 80 percent of adults between the ages of 20 and 54 were married. Today only 57 percent are. “You have two months, two weeks, six days, seven hours and 18 minutes!” But, ma, I tell her, younger generations are much more likely to get divorced than your generation did — some 45 percent of marriages end in divorce. Brad Wilcox, director of the National Marriage Project,
told the Associated Press why. He said people have a high degree of “expressive individualism” these days — people are demanding an unrealistic level of fulfillment in marriage. When their sense of fulfillment wanes, many don’t feel like being married anymore. “You have one month, three weeks, three days, four hours and 27 minutes!” But, ma, I continue, Wilcox is on to something. Everyone these days is looking for a soul mate — that perfect person who will make him or her feel warm and fuzzy all the time. Our expectations are impossibly high. We’re all thinking too much. No one person can ever live up to our ideals and so we stay single. “You have two weeks, four days, twelve hours and 18
minutes!” But, ma, I finally say, part of my problem is finding a lady just like you. You are the most honest, caring, compassionate woman I have ever known. You taught me what really matters in life: family, laughter, honesty, beauty. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a woman who holds all the qualities you hold. Ma, you have set the bar so high that… “Put a sock in it. You have one day, two hours and 24 minutes to get married!” Tom Purcell, a humor columnist for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, is nationally syndicated exclusively by Cagle Cartoons newspaper syndicate.

Letters to the Editor Why the U.S. didn’t get the Olympics To the editor:
Fix health care for the paying first In an ideal world every American would have comprehensive health care. In that same ideal world everyone would also have a house, a car, money for vacations, an attractive spouse, well-behaved kids and a local sports team that wins a world championship every year. In this magical fantasy land, everyone would also have white teeth, good hair, a surprisingly accurate jump shot and a chance to meet with the president regularly just to share your opinions. Here in the real world, we should not be focusing on creating an unattainable utopia. Instead, our president should be focusing on fixing the health care system for those who can actually afford coverage. While it would be wonderful to insure the uninsured, that seems like an absurdly ambitious (and ultimately impossible) goal when we can’t even provide decent coverage for those who already pay. My health insurance, which costs nearly $400 a month just for me (my wife and son have coverage through her company’s plan), comes with high deductibles, random denials and an ever-increasing amount of hoops to jump through. Were I to get sick, faceless insurance drones would play a significant role in deciding how I get treated, often overruling highly trained doctors. I base this assumption on the fact for my relatively minor stomach ailment my insurance company has entirely dictated my course of treatment. They
had a specific list of which medicines must be tried first — a list which contradicted what my doctor wanted me to take. If my insurer interferes for financial reasons over a relatively minor stomach medicine than I cannot imagine what the company might do Daniel B. were I to get a major Kline disease. Special to It seems The Daily Dispatch obvious that before we start extending health coverage to those who cannot actually afford it, we must fix it for those who can. It plays well to the populist left-wing audience to attempt to pass universal health care. Attacking the more manageable problem of making sure those who already have insurance get treated reasonably does not excite the Democratic base in the same way even though it is the more logical, more readily solvable problem. President Obama likes to pretend that everyone can have insurance without the vast majority of people already insured paying more. Of course, he intends to tack on extra taxes for the people he considers rich, but us regular middle class folks won’t feel a thing and all of our lightly more downtrodden friends will now have full coverage. Essentially Obama wants ev-
eryone to believe that perhaps through the power of his undeniable charisma everyone can be insured and almost nobody will pay more. Unless doctors and hospitals start working for free (which they already essentially do with most Medicare payouts, sadly enough) then the tab for universal coverage will be enormous. To make matters worse, that tab will be paid by people like me who work hard to pay for fairly crummy coverage. It’s hard to imagine that adding millions of nonpaying customers to the system will improve my care. And, well, though you seem like nice people, at the end of the day, I’m mostly worried about me and mine. While it would be nice for every American to have health care, we cannot provide it by further burdening those who can actually afford it. President Obama needs to stop playing Robin Hood and start solving real problems. Fix health care for the paying customers first and then see what we can do to make health coverage affordable for more people. That sentence won’t win you an election, but it’s practical, logical and, most importantly, achievable. Daniel B. Kline’s work appears in over 100 papers weekly. When he is not writing Kline serves as general manager of Time Machine Hobby New England’s largest hobby and toy store, www.timemachinehobby. com. He can be reached at dan@ notastep.com or you can see his archive at DBKline.com or befriend him at facebook.com/dankline.
There are and will be many explanations for our recent failure to “continue to get what we want,” regarding hosting the next Olympics Games. I would like to add mine. But first a question? When your kids act up or disobey you, do you extend to them favors? If your response is no, then you should understand what I am about to say. For the last few months, Americans have been acting like immature children throwing a fit! We have attacked our properly elected president, shouting our insults, and ridicule, when all he is attempting to accomplish is to aid most of those same shouting Americans. We have displayed total disregard for character and virtue, issuing out the sorts of Bernie Madoff, John Edwards, even David Letterman, etc. (I won’t even attempt to enumerate the politicians!) And if this was not adequate, how about culminating with the beating death of that honor student in Chicago! (The place where we wanted to host the Olympics.) Don’t know how you feel, but I think America doesn’t look like the kind of place you’d want to get too cozy with. Its way past time for “time out;” it is time for maturing into a more decent planetary citizen. Then others will be more likely to want to “come out and play.” John Mayo, Creedmoor

victory over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night and a 2-0 lead in their AL playoff series. Game 2 was full of missed chances, plus a big miss by an umpire. The first-year Yankees star connected against Jose Mijares, hitting a drive that skipped off the top of the left-field wall and into the rollicking, sellout crowd. He tossed aside his batting helmet as he approached home before being mobbed by his teammates.

Mercury wins WNBA finals over Indiana
Teixeira wins it for Yankees in 11th
Heels want to jump-start offense vs. Ga. Southern CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina’s midseason breather just got a whole lot more significant. Not long ago, the Tar Heels figured their glorified exhibition Saturday against Georgia Southern would give them an opportunity to pad some stats and keep themselves flying high in the polls entering the heart of Atlantic Coast Conference play. But after consecutive league losses in which the offense struggled, The Tar Heels are approaching this as their last chance to figure out what exactly has gone wrong. “Are we trying to do too much with a young, inexperienced offensive football team?” coach Butch Davis asked. “Some of the things that we did last year, there were some guys that aren’t ready to do some of those things all the time, whether it’s the receivers, whether it’s the offensive line. And obviously, as the season has gone on, we’ve gotten younger and more inexperienced.” There isn’t much on the line during North Carolina’s second matchup with a Football Championship Subdivision member — except for the Tar Heels’ self-esteem. The game means nothing for bowl eligibility because teams may use only one FCS victory per season toward the six required to make the postseason, and North Carolina (3-2) already claimed one in the opener against The Citadel. But after averaging 164 total yards in losses to Georgia Tech and previously winless Virginia, the once-ranked Tar Heels hope to get things clicking again when they face a middle-of-the-pack defense from college football’s second tier. The Eagles (3-2) and their odd-stack defense have proven capable of surrendering large chunks of yards lately, allowing 338 yards passing to air-oriented Elon and 234 yards rushing to groundbased Wofford in consecutive weeks. But North Carolina’s across-the-board

New York’s Mark Teixeira celebrates with teammates after hitting a game-winning home run in the 11th inning of Game 2 of their division series against the Twins Friday.
NEW YORK (AP) — Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez stood together as Yankee Stadium roared. Teixeira had the chills. Rodriguez had a smile that said it all — a satisfied look after putting years of postseason failure behind him. Teixeira hit a leadoff drive in the 11th inning to give New York a 4-3
“I don’t think there’s anything better in sports,” Teixeira said. “Best place to play in the world.” Rodriguez hit a tying, two-run homer off Joe Nathan in the ninth after a leadoff single by Teixeira. Rodriguez also had his third two-out RBI single of the series as the Yankees patched together their first 2-0 postseason start since 1999 against Texas.

Webb rallies from big deficit to beat Southern in conference opener By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor
Down 20-6 at halftime Friday night, J.F. Webb relied on an effective running attack and a late fourth-quarter touchdown to spoil Southern Vance’s homecoming night. The Warriors won 34-32 in the Carolina 3A Conference opener for both teams. The duo of quarterback Joel Adcock and Akeem Daniel gashed the Raiders for 190 yards on the ground — the majority of them coming in the second half. “Being their homecoming, we knew they would come out and give us an early punch. We’ve been preaching all week, ‘just stay with it. Take the ebbs and the flow, it’ll come back our way,’” said Webb coach Brian

Turnovers costly for Vikes in loss to Orange By KELLEN HOLTZMAN Special to the Dispatch

Northern Vance’s Montrell Jefferson attempts to make a tackle on an Orange player in Friday’s 34-14 Panther win.
Orange’s balanced offensive attack was too much for Northern Vance to handle in its 34-14 loss Friday night. Orange (4-3, 1-0) piled up over 450 yards of total offense in the Carolina 3A Conference opener. Northern didn’t do itself any favors though, committing four costly turnovers in the first half. “We can’t do that. We’re killing ourselves,” said Vikings coach Cedric Crudup. “You just can’t do those things and think you’re going to win.” Holding a 20-0 halftime advantage, Orange scored quickly to open the second half when quarterback Fred Blanks found Donovan McCul-
ley for a 69-yard touchdown strike. Northern countered when a big kickoff return from Eric Jeffries put the Vikings in scoring position. On the next play, Jordan Branch connected with Brandon Epps for a 28-yard touchdown down the right sideline to bring the score to 27-7. “We show flashes of brilliance, but those flashes are very few and far between,” said Crudup. “We’re bad more than we’re good. We’ve got to get a little more consistent.” The Panthers wouldn’t give the Vikings any more openings. John Kenion scored from 15 yards out with 6:13 left in the third to put Northern away for good.

RALEIGH— Russell Wilson went so long — nearly 400 passes, in fact — without throwing an interception that it seemed like he might never throw one again. Yet he threw two last week to snap his NCAA-record streak, sending him into North Carolina State’s game against instate rival Duke on Saturday with the goal of starting another long mistake-free run. “I feel like that’s what I’m supposed to do,” Wilson said. “I’m expected not to turn the ball over. I’m expected to be successful every time I step on the field and that’s what I expect of myself. “In terms of the interception record, it’s definitely a good thing. It’s an NCAA record. That’s pretty cool. But at the same time, I want to try to beat that again.” Wilson set the Bowl Subdivision mark with 379 straight passes without an interception before Wake Forest’s Josh Bush picked him off on a poorly thrown deep ball during the second quarter of the 30-24 loss to the Demon Deacons. Then Kenny Okoro picked him off in the end zone with 2:02 left on his final throw of the game. Wilson’s ability to protect the football has certainly helped the Wolfpack (3-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) in his second season as a starting quarterback. He threw 17 touchdowns with one interception en route to becoming the first freshman quarterback named first-team all-ACC last year, and had thrown 12 touchdowns in the three games leading up to the Wake Forest loss. It was a reminder that Wilson is still a young quarterback, one that coach Tom O’Brien wants to see learn to step up in the pocket more as part of his development. “He’s been going out, back and around,” O’Brien said. “Now he’s able to do that, or he was able to do it against Pittsburgh and at Wake Forest, but he wasn’t able to against South Carolina. You have to do it right all the time. It can’t just be based on who you’re playing and what you’re seeing. Those are some of the things we have to work with him on. He’s still a young kid.” Still, that mobility and bigplay ability is enough to have Duke (2-3, 0-1) concerned as it Please see DUKE-STATE, page 3B

Two-minute drill College Football S. Miss walk-on punter critically wounded HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — Peter Wilkes, a walkon punter at Southern Miss, is in critical condition at a Memphis, Tenn., hospital after being shot at his home in Union City, Tenn. Regional Medical Center officials said Friday that Wilkes was being treated in a critical care unit. Union City Assistant Police Chief Perry Barfield said the case is under investigation as an accident or selfinflicted gunshot wound. Southern Miss officials retracted an initial news release that said Wilkes was shot Thursday night in an accident and had died Friday morning. Southern Miss spokesman Jack Duggan said in a statement Friday afternoon that Wilkes suffered an “irrecoverable injury” Thursday night. Wilkes was not a member of the Golden Eagles’ travel party to Louisville for Saturday’s game and was at home during the school’s fall break. He made an early push to win the job at punter during preseason practice, but has not played this season.
Golf International stays close with late rally SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker dominated in a different format, and the International team again made a late rally to keep the matches close in the Presidents Cup. Ernie Els and Mike Weir won their last three holes in a fourballs match to turn a deficit into a 2-up victory, and Tim Clark made an eagle on the 18th hole of the last match on the course Friday for a 1-up victory. The Americans still have a 6 1/2-5 1/2 lead after both teams split the second session of matches. Woods and Stricker have yet to play the 16th hole this week, and they are the only players to have never trailed at Harding Park.
NFL Manning practices, no signs of injured heel EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning returned to practice Friday and showed no ill effects of the injured right heel that kept him out the previous two days. Yet the team is still being cautious about his status for Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders. Manning is listed as questionable and coach Tom Coughlin said it will more than likely be a gametime decision whether he will play. “If the medical people think he can play, then he will play,” Coughlin said. “We’ll evaluate him every day. “I know he wants to play in the worst way, but we’re not going to go against the medical people. We’re not going to pencil him in and say he’s playing.” Coughlin said that he was “encouraged” by the way Manning looked at practice.

Goals come easy for Canes in win over Panthers
those goals came long after Carolina had taken control. Tomas Vokoun managed 21 saves before being chased from the game after Cullen’s score made it 5-1 barely 90 seconds into the third period. Things didn’t go much better for backup Alexander Salak; he gave up goals to Brind’Amour and Harrison just 19 seconds apart in the final minutes. The Panthers — playing for the first time since traveling to Finland and splitting a two-game set with Chicago last week — certainly helped
Carolina with a couple of miscues that quickly led to momentum-seizing goals. That was part of a dominating first period in which Carolina outshot Florida 16-5. “Hats off to Carolina, they played a great first period, and the game was over in the first 20 minutes,” Florida coach Peter DeBoer said. First, with Florida on a power play, Kostopoulos reached out with his left arm as he skated by Florida captain Bryan McCabe and poked the puck loose between the circles. Kostopoulos quickly corralled the puck then pushed it under Vokoun from just outside the crease at the 7-minute mark for his first goal with the Hurricanes. “It was surprising. My eyes were pretty big there,” Kostopoulos said. “We were putting a lot of pucks on net and going to net, but nothing was happening (in past games). But I think tonight gives everyone more confidence that if we do the right thing, good things will happen.”
with a shoulder injury shortly before the Panthers took a 20-0 lead. Branch, who returned in the second half, sustained the injury covering a fumble that occurred on a botched snap. “He just got a little stinger,” said Crudup. “He’s probably going to be sore tomorrow. He’s got a little bruise on the shoulder, but he’ll be okay.”
Northern falls to 1-6 on the season and hosts Chapel Hill for homecoming next week. The Tigers (2-5, 0-1) are coming off of a 41-7 loss to Cardinal Gibbons. “We’ve got to worry about Northern Vance,” said Crudup. “We’ll get back to work on Monday and we’re going to try to prepare better than we did last week.”

RALEIGH — The Carolina Hurricanes looked ready to play from the moment the puck dropped. Throw in a couple of early turnovers from the Florida Panthers, and the Hurricanes had everything they needed for an easy win against a division rival. Tom Kostopoulos and Jussi Jokinen scored first-period goals off those turnovers in Florida’s end to help the Hurricanes beat the Panthers 7-2 on Friday night, earning their second straight win after an 0-2 start. Tuomo Ruutu also scored in the opening period for the Hurricanes, who led 3-0 after the first and cruised the rest of the way. Ray Whitney, Matt Cullen, Rod Brind’Amour and Jay Harrison also scored for Carolina, while Cam Ward finished with 25 saves — including on a pair of breakaway chances for the Panthers. Carolina’s offense had managed just three regulation goals through

This time, Jokinen had three points while three others tallied multipoint games. Six of Carolina’s seven goals came from players who hadn’t found the back of the net yet this season. “When you go three games and people you expect to score don’t, they feel it,” coach Paul Maurice said. “And they feel it right away. Hopefully those guys have just a little more confidence with the puck now.” Shawn Matthias and Michael Frolik scored for Florida, though
VIKINGS, from page 1B The Vikings added a late fourth-quarter touchdown when Branch found D.J. Williams for 9-yard score to bring it to 34-14. Branch finished the night 10-for-19 for 111 yards. Jeffries led Northern on the ground with 12 carries totaling 37 yards. He also chipped in with four catches for 27 yards. John Nelson led the Vikings in receiving with two catches for 29 yards. Orange rushed for over 200 yards, rarely resorting to a pass in the second half. Drevis Torain led the way with 71 yards and one touchdown. Kenion and Thomas Jones both ran for 46 yards. “Our young linebackers were a little bit confused on how they were supposed to fit and how to play the Iso. And they ran wild on us,” Crudup said. The Panthers opened the scoring with 3:06 re-
maining in the first quarter when Blanks connected with Jamaal Owens for a 50-yard touchdown strike. Nick Shriner capped off a 45-yard Orange drive in the second quarter with a 1-yard touchdown run to make it 13-0. The point after touchdown was no good. The Panthers offense kept rolling with a 15yard touchdown run from Torain, increasing the lead to 20-0. The Vikings were content to enter the half down 20, but fumbled at their own 30, giving Orange another scoring opportunity. Northern blocked a Panther field goal after two incomplete pass attempts to enter the half down 20. Blanks finished the night throwing 11-for-18 and 244 yards. Orange only attempted three passes in the second half. Branch left the game

Pondexter, Taurasi lead Mercury to title
4 of 14 for 13 points after going 2 of 14 in Game 4. The Mercury made 10 of 17 3s. Phoenix won it with the super-speed style that thencoach Paul Westhead used in 2007 and Corey Gaines adopted when he took over. After a cold-shooting first quarter, the Mercury turned it on with one of their best 10 minutes of the season, shooting a finals record 76.5 percent (13 of 17) — and they even missed their last two shots — in a secondquarter blitz. Phoenix also set a finals second-quarter record for points, outscoring Indiana 35-19 to take a 51-42 lead at the break. Taurasi, after struggling with her shot against Catchings’ defense in the first four games, was 5 for 5 in a 13-point second quarter, three of them 3-pointers. Her NBA-length 3 from the top of the key with 6:19
left in the half gave her 10 points already in the quarter and put Phoenix up 33-31. The Mercury made 13 of their first 15 shots secondquarter shots. Bonner scored five in a 7-0 spurt that gave Phoenix its biggest lead of the night 51-40 on her two free throws with 1:10 to go. The Mercury led by as many as 10 in the third quarter, but rookie Briann January — from nearby Arizona State — sank a 3-pointer with 36.7 seconds left to cut Phoenix’s lead to 70-65 entering the fourth. January’s 3-pointer, followed by Sutton-Brown’s inside basket that made it 80-80 with 4:29 to go. The Fever shot out to a 14-5 lead and were up 23-16 after one quarter. Phoenix shot 36 percent (4 of 15) in the opening period. SuttonBrown had 14 points in the quarter, including 6 of 8 free throws, but was limited to two points in the second quarter. The previous record for shooting percentage in a quarter in the finals was 73.3 percent by Phoenix at Detroit in 2007. It was the fourth time the WNBA finals went to a deciding fifth game since the league went to the bestof-five format in 2005. Phoenix Suns captains Amare Stoudemire, Steve Nash and Grant Hill purchased the tickets in the upper bowl of US Airways Center, then gave them away, leading to a sellout crowd of 17,313.
the sophomore’s style of play “designed unpredictability.” “He’s not just running around like a wild man out there,” Cutcliffe said. “You’ve got to do a lot of things. He’s going to make some plays. The best thing you can do is not let him make two or three in a row. And once he makes a play, you can’t hang your head.”
To Wilson, that statement also applies to him in those rare moments when he throws an interception. While he appreciated setting a national record, he also knows he can’t be perfect forever. “I just have to make better throws,” Wilson said. “I’m going to keep throwing it. Interceptions are going to happen.”
For the Tar Heels, that won’t take much. After they were held without a touchdown for the first time under Davis, they heard boos from the few folks who stuck around Kenan Stadium until the end. “All week at practice, you’re counting on these
certain plays to work for you, and the first couple of times you run them, they’re just not going well at all,” quarterback T.J. Yates said. “It kind of shuts down your confidence — the things that were working for you that week at prac-
tice are kind of getting shut down during the game. It’s definitely frustrating when that stuff happens.” To reverse that, they spent the past week dialing back the playbook, simplifying things and getting back to basics. “Us identifying the
things that we think we can do and we can do well, and stay on the course that lets us do those things,” Davis said. “It may look like a great idea on Sundays or on Mondays during game-plan meetings, but if the kids can’t execute it, it doesn’t make any difference.”
“We got the opening kickoff, we went down and scored, started getting momentum and started running the ball more effectively and just rolled from there,” said Currin. “It just started clicking, and like a snowball, it just started getting bigger and bigger, and they started believing we could just run on them.” The Raiders had no answer for the Warrior rushing game in the second half. Adcock had 83 yards for the game, and Daniel had 107. Adcock was also 10-of-18 passing for 166 yards. In the second half, he was a perfect 5-for-5 through the air. The night began well for the Raiders, who scored on the opening possession. Facing third down on the Webb 22, Harris rolled right and took it into the end zone himself. The missed point after made it 6-0. Harris connected with Nunu Henderson from seven yards out on a swing pass that made it 12-0. The pass was set up by a 27yard run from Henderson, who finished the day with 80 yards on the ground. Webb converted a big third down on their next
drive. Adcock connected with Daniel on a screen, and the senior took it 63 yards into the red zone. Adcock punched it in from two yards out, and the missed PAT made it 12-6 Southern. Southern increased their lead later on a Henderson run. On first down from the 22, Henderson took the handoff, and looked to be dropped for a minimal gain by the swarming Webb defense. But the referee’s whistle never blew, as it was determined Henderson’s knee didn’t touch the ground. After a second or two of confusion from both teams, Henderson turned and ran it in the rest of the way. Harris’ pass to Warren completed the two-point attempt that made it 20-6. Harris missed a couple of series late in the second quarter and early in the third, and coaches said he was feeling light-headed. He didn’t seem phased when he returned to the field to lead the later drives. Southern Vance coach Mark Perry said his quarterback was fine following the game. “We couldn’t stop (their offense), and I think maybe they got a little bit of
momentum when James went out for a few series,” Perry said. “You’ve got to give it to them, they didn’t die out, and our kids didn’t die out.” Perry’s team falls to 0-1 in the conference and 3-4 overall. “It’s a thing you have to use as a learning tool, and come back and next week and get ready to go for Cardinal Gibbons,” Perry said. The Raiders travel on the road to play the Crusaders, who beat Chapel Hill 41-7 Friday. “Our goal for this season was to make it in the playoffs. That’s still our goal, it’s a very attainable goal,” said Perry. “Obviously we’re going to have win a couple more football games, but it’s a very attainable goal.” Currin’s team is now 3-4 (1-0). The Warriors travel to Orange next week. The Panthers defeated Northern Vance 34-14 Friday. “You can’t be 5-0 without being 1-0,” said Currin. “You can’t win the conference unless you take care of business every night in this conference.”

PHOENIX — The Phoenix Mercury are WNBA champions for the second time in three seasons, leaning on their ‘big three’ to pull out a 94-86 victory over the tenacious Indiana Fever in the deciding Game 5 Friday night. Diana Taurasi, Cappie Pondexter and Penny Taylor — the trio that led the team to its 2007 title — did it again in 2009. League and finals MVP Taurasi scored 26 points, Pondexter had 24, and Taylor sank two crucial free throws with 37.7 seconds left as the Mercury held off a late rally to win the intense series 3-2. “This is what we do, we make big plays,” Taurasi said, holding a towel over her head in the champagnedrenched locker room. “We have people that step up and love to live the moment. It’s a great team, great team.” Tammy Sutton-Brown scored 22 points, and Jessica Davenport had a career-high 18 for Indiana in its first finals appearance. Tamika Catchings added 16 points and nine rebounds for the Fever. Indiana rallied from 10 down in the second half to tie it at 80 on SuttonBrown’s layup with 4:29 to play, then Tangela Smith made two 3-pointers, her only field goals of the night, to put the Mercury ahead for good.

Pondexter’s 9-footer made it 88-82 with 2:22 left, but the Fever — who had led the series 2-1 — weren’t finished. Davenport’s inside basket cut it to 88-84, then Catchings’ rebound basket made it 88-86 with 2:07 to play. On the Mercury’s next possession, Taylor drove to the basket and was fouled by Davenport. Her two free throws made it 90-86. Two free throws apiece DeWanna Bonner and Taurasi provided the final margin. “Indiana’s a great team,” Pondexter said. “It just shows our resilience and how bad we really wanted to win.” Taylor added 14 points and Bonner 13 for Phoenix.

Angels’ Weaver, Izturis beat Red Sox to take 2-0 lead By GREG BEACHAM AP Sports Writer
ANAHEIM, Calif. — With Jered Weaver picking up right where John Lackey left off for the Los Angeles Angels, not even Josh Beckett could keep the Boston Red Sox from the brink of playoff elimination. Weaver yielded two hits while dominating Boston into the eighth inning, and Maicer Izturis drove home the tiebreaking run in Los Angeles’ 4-1 victory over the Red Sox on Friday night, extending the Angels’ first-round lead to 2-0. Game 3 is early Sunday at Fenway Park, with Boston’s Clay Buchholz facing Angels newcomer Scott Kazmir. Erick Aybar followed Izturis’ RBI single with a two-run triple during the Angels’ two-out rally in the seventh to break up a stellar pitching duel between Weaver and Beckett, Boston’s ace and most reliable playoff performer. Aybar’s hit chased Beckett, who yielded five hits and four runs in 6 2-3 innings during his first playoff loss in a Red Sox uniform. It was his first defeat in nine postseason starts since Game 3 of the
2003 World Series with Florida. The Red Sox eliminated the Angels in three of the past five postseasons, but they’ve mustered just one run and eight hits in the series’ first two games. After Lackey and Darren Oliver combined to blank the Red Sox 5-0 in the series opener, Weaver was better than Beckett, the former World Series MVP, in just his second postseason start. Although the Red Sox scored their only run of the series in the fourth on Victor Martinez’s RBI single, Weaver limited wild-card Boston to just four baserunners before his Los Angeles teammates came through at the plate and out of the bullpen — albeit just barely. Boston got the tying run to the plate in the ninth with Kevin Youkilis doubled off Kevin Jepsen and Jason Bay drew a two-out walk from Brian Fuentes. Although Red Sox fans might have conjured visions of Dave Henderson’s memorable ninth-inning homer for the Red Sox in Anaheim at Game 5 of the 1986 AL championship series, Fuentes retired Mike Lowell on a fly to center for the save.
HEELS-GSU, from page 1B athleticism presents coach Chris Hatcher with a new set of problems. “It’s very difficult when their 11 are going to be physically better than your 11, and that’s the case this week,” Hatcher said. “We’re not going to change the whole playbook, but you’ve
got to be careful about the mismatches that you have, put your guys in a position to be successful. ... The bigger picture, though, is we want to improve as a football team this week. That’s our ultimate goal — be better this week than we were against Wofford.”
WEBB WINS, from page 1B Warren on a 61-yard touchdown pass that made it 28-26 after the failed two-point attempt. Southern regained the lead with under seven minutes to go in the game when Harris, on a quarterback keeper, looked to be wrapped up for a minimal gain, but squeezed out of the grasp of the Warrior defender and scampered 55 yards for the go-ahead score that made it 32-28. Webb responded by driving down the field on a methodical drive that ate up the clock. Using optionread plays, Adcock and Daniel chipped away at the Raider defense. An eight-yard run from Daniel set the Warriors up on the 3-yard line. Adcock took the snap, faked the handoff to Daniel and pitched it to Darquis Thomas on the triple option. Thomas took it in for the eventual winning score. After Adcock was stopped short of converting the 2, the score was set at 34-32. Southern Vance squandered any chance of a final comeback when they muffed the ensuing kickoff. Webb took over possession and ran out the clock. “Any team can win this conference. There’s no

I’m just really glad that we came out on top in this one. But they’re (Southern) a good team, and I know that they’ll win a lot of conference games too. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if they beat everybody else in the conference.” Webb’s win spoiled an otherwise solid performance from Harris, who finished with 126 yards on the ground and was 10-of14 passing for 124 yards and two touchdowns. “They had a lot of suc-
cess early. Quite frankly, we couldn’t stop their running game or throwing game. No. 10 (Harris) is a heck of an athlete,” said Currin. The Warriors secondhalf comeback began on their opening possession. They took over with good field position after the Raiders couldn’t recover the onside kick. The Warriors capped off the touchdown drive with a 23-yard run from Daniel. After another touchdown run of 13 yards from Daniel and a 32-yard pass to Thomas for another score, Webb led 28-20.

Embattled Bowden needs win over No. 22 Ga. Tech By BRENT KALLESTAD Associated Press Writer
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Bobby Bowden is in dire need of a win against No. 22 Georgia Tech on Saturday, maybe as badly as any of the 514 times he has walked the sidelines as a college coach. Florida State (2-3, 0-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) is off to its worst start since Bowden’s first year in 1976 and fan disenchantment has grown during a decade of mediocrity. The 14-year run of top five finishes that produced a pair of national titles and two Heisman Trophy winners are a distant memory. Most Florida State students were in elementary school when the Seminoles made their last push for a national title. Bowden’s job status divides boosters, school administrators, trustees and students.

Florida State head coach Bobby Bowden is walks the sideline during the second half of last Saturday’s game against Boston College. After a tumultuous week, Bowden and the Seminoles face Georgia Tech today. Florida State student Michael Hoff, a freshman, says it’s time for the university to go in another direction. “He’s a vital part to our school as a whole and we all love him, but it’s time for someone new,” Hoff said of Bowden. “We have a lot of talent right now. I
ALDS, from page 1B enigmatic slugger was hitless in his previous 18 playoff at-bats with runners in scoring position. “This whole year I’m playing with no expectations,” said Rodriguez, who missed the first month of the season after hip surgery. “I’m going out and having fun doing the best that I can.” Minnesota was hurt by a blown call by left-field umpire Phil Cuzzi in the top of the 11th. Joe Mauer started the inning with a drive down the line that appeared to go off Melky Cabrera’s glove before clearly landing about a foot inside the line and bouncing into the stands. Cuzzi said it was foul — it’s been a tough week for umpires, with several missed calls — and Mauer ended up with a single when he should have had a ground-rule double. “You can’t see at all from the dugout, but I think we all know the ball was fair by a long ways,” Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. Nathan was watching the play on a TV in the visiting clubhouse. “I wasn’t the only one who had a tough night,” he said. “You don’t know how he missed it. There’s no red flag we can throw out there to get an instant replay.” Minnesota went on to load the bases with no outs but failed to score when David Robertson retired three straight batters. Delmon Young lined out to Teixeira at first, Mauer was cut down at home on Carlos Gomez’s grounder and Brendan Harris flied out. Crew chief Tim Tschida said he looked at Mauer’s ball after the game and admitted it was a blown call. “There’s a guy sitting over in the umpire’s dressing room right now that feels horrible,” Tschida said. “Nobody feels it worse than the umpire.” Those were the last of the 17 runners the Twins stranded. They’ve left 26 on base in the series, and also gave away a run when Gomez committed a baserunning blunder in the fourth. “We left a small village on base,” Harris said. Teixeira then hit New York’s first game-ending shot since Aaron Boone’s drive against the Boston Red Sox in Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS. Andy Pettitte will try to close out the series when he faces former Yankees pitcher Carl Pavano in Game 3 on
Sunday at the Metrodome. The Yankees improved to 9-0 against the Twins this season. Minnesota has led in all six games at the Bronx, but has failed to win any of them. Instead, the Twins saw the Yankees’ 16th walkoff win of the season, most in the majors. Nick Blackburn held New York’s lineup to one run and three hits in 5 2-3 crisp innings and three relievers retired seven in a row before Nathan imploded in the ninth. Rodriguez’s mammoth drive landed in the Yankees’ bullpen in left-center for his first postseason homer since Game 4 of the 2007 division series against Cleveland. He dropped his bat after the shot, looked into his dugout and clenched his fist as he started to trot around the bases. He raised his right arm as he rounded first while the crowd of 50,006 cheered wildly, shaking New York’s first-year home. “The fun part is I was just thinking base hit,” he said. “Hit the ball hard somewhere. And it went to the seats.” After a quick celebration with his teammates, Rodriguez popped his head out of the dugout for an October curtain call. It was the eighth homer allowed by Nathan this year but first with a runner on base. Rodriguez’s single in the sixth tied it at 1 but the Twins responded in the eighth, putting runners on first and third after the first two batters were retired. Nick Punto hit an RBI single off Phil Hughes and Denard Span added another run-scoring single off Mariano Rivera. New York’s winning rally washed away all the pregame talk about A.J. Burnett and batterymate Jose Molina, who started in place of longtime Yankees catcher Jorge Posada. Burnett walked five and hit two batters in his first postseason start, but allowed one run and three hits in six innings. Minnesota had a chance to take the lead in the fourth but Gomez slipped rounding second and was tagged out before Young could score on Matt Tolbert’s single. “It’s a mistake,” Gomez said. “A mistake I made today cost us one run. It’s my bad. That’s it.”
think we can be successful in the time coming.” A loss Saturday in the nationally televised game would only increase the pressure on Bowden, who is less than a month away from his 80th birthday. Bowden and his Seminoles would face 12 days of second-guessing before

their next game — another nationally televised game Oct. 22 at North Carolina. This past week board of Trustees chairman Jim Smith called for Bowden to retire at season’s end following a loss at Boston College. The Florida State administration also said this week that Bowden’s coaching future will be decided at the end of the season. And the rules have changed. It’s no longer Bowden’s option “I will evaluate the program with the athletics director at the end of this season,” Florida State president T.K. Wetherell said this week, adding that he expects “our teams to be competitive.” Some dissident students on Facebook are calling for a “Black Out Doak for Change,” on Saturday, encouraging fans to wear black to the game to emphasize their senti-
ments that it’s time for Bowden to leave the very field named after him. “This is a what-haveyou-done-for-me-lately business,” Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson said. “You would think he has done enough so that he can go out on his own terms. He put Florida State on the map with what he did.” Bowden has rejected the retirement overtures, even though his assistants found themselves denying reports of dissension among their ranks and the hometown newspaper, the Tallahassee Democrat, said it was time to step down. “If you listen to your critics, you’ll be sitting up there with ’em,” Bowden said. “If I was 40 years old I’d been shaking in my boots, but I’m 79.” Offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher is Wetherell’s choice to succeed Bowden and his contract
to become head coach is being updated. Bowden’s future has dominated the news in Tallahassee. It has been the lead story on the Democrat’s front page all week as well as the focus of radio talk shows across Florida and Internet Web sites and chat rooms. Athletics Director Randy Spetman acknowledged most e-mail coming to his office were not supportive of the venerable coach. Johnson expects there will be tremendous support for the embattled coach during Saturday’s game and that the Seminoles will be fired up. “I certainly think they’ll be circling the wagons,” Johnson said. “I fully expect them to have their best effort of the year. I think they’ll come out wired and ready to play.” Bowden, who has won 384 games, is counting on it.

Senior circle meets The Senior Circle met on Sept. 16 in the fellowship hall of Plank Chapel United Methodist Church. After a brief business meeting, President Faye Woodlief turned the meeting over to Kay House. House read a thought-provoking essay which described Jesus entering her house. He visited every room with the narrator, who saw her house through the eyes of Jesus. She became self conscious and wondered what items she had in her home which did not reflect a Christian way of life. From the living room, kitchen, and bedroom to the shed and attic, the hostess evaluated every item and action which took place. It was an examination of conscience, of heart, and of soul presented in a very human, understandable way. Following the program, the circle honored the life of Annie Laura Hock, who recently passed away. House wrote a poem describing the loving influence Hock had on all who knew her. The poem provoked many spontaneous remarks about all the kind things she had done in the community and the church. The poem was presented to members of her family who were present at the meeting. Conrad Hock and Rose Tart presented a financial gift to the circle designated by Hock to be given after her death. Jane Owen made a motion to invite a guest speaker from Lincare Medical Supplies for the next program, to be held Oct. 15 at 10 a.m. Anyone interested in finding out more about available home health supplies is invited to attend.

Answer: A (Answers Monday) TULLE LAVISH POPLIN Jumbles: SHEEP Answer: The shop owner’s donut discount amounted to — “HOLE” SALE
HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re getting better at relaxing. What might have stressed you out in the past is now causing you to have a good laugh. Additionally, your enthusiasm is more infectious than ever, prompting a social opportunity. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Life only sends what we can handle. So you can take this recent mammoth challenge as a compliment to your resourcefulness. Tonight you are like a child with the ability to remain absolutely true in all situations. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The spotlight is on your famous wit and keen sense of social propriety. After you put on a good show, you’ll be in need of someone with whom you don’t have to be so animated — perhaps a down-to-earth Taurus. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll wear a bewildered expression owing to some astounding good news. Your hard work was bound to pay off eventually. This result was inevitable from the outset. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Inspiration from without galvanizes willpower within. A friend’s determination to improve causes you to re-evaluate your own personal habits. It seems like everyone is making changes now! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ve been spending a lot of energy in sedentary mental pursuits, and now your body needs more attention. If you’re not in the mood for exercise, go enjoy games that get you moving. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A friend’s seemingly small gesture prompts an emotional reaction that

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2009
startles both of you. You forget sometimes just how deeply you feel things. Your emotional flexibility and availability is a wonderful gift. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your attraction secret is simple: You inspire people to feel good about themselves when they are around you. You ask questions and listen. You make them feel important, and they get addicted to your high esteem. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your stories are truthful, and yet you get a lot of incredulous looks in response to them. You can’t help it if your life is more colorful, interesting and complex than the movies! But you can help whom you opt to tell about it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are already unique and don’t need to go out of your way to cultivate any special aura. Believe in the strength of your current collection of talents and features. You have what you need, and all you have to do now is work it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be in an impulsive mood, but your inclinations may not be based in what’s good for you. Make sure you’re feeling calm and in control before you act, and consider all possible repercussions of your actions, too. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will be solving problems, though it doesn’t happen without going through a process. The first solution you try may not work, but there are many alternatives. Be experimental.
