Israeli firm to open Granville plant Shalag Industries has a client list including Johnson & Johnson and Kimberly Clark By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer

OXFORD — An Israeli supplier of nonwoven fabrics in the hygiene and sanitary wipes markets will open a multi-milliondollar plant near the Interstate 85 and U.S. Highway 158 interchange just east of Oxford and will be employing 42 persons. “It’s exciting news, it really is,” Granville County Economic

Development Board Chairman William Adcock told the Dispatch on Monday afternoon when asked his reaction to a commitment from Shalag Industries. The company, which is based in Upper Galilee and dates back to 1984, already has a plant and has a client list that includes Johnson & Johnson, Nicepak and Kimberly Clark. Shalag produces nonwoven

fabrics primarily from polypropylene, polyester and viscose fibers. The fabric is used in the production of dry and wet wipes, diapers and personal hygiene products. In Granville, the fibers will be thermo-bonded into nonwoven fabric. “Shalag is looking forward to becoming a successful corporate citizen in North Carolina and in Oxford,” company Chief Execu-

tive Officier IlanPickman said. “North Carolina is a recognized center for nonwoven manufacturing andR&D and we have identified here a strong infrastructure to support ourbusiness,” Pickman said. The Granville project’s 42 new jobs will pay an average annual wage of$39,966, not including benefits, which exceeds the county average annualwage of $33,020.

County Economic Development Director Jay Tilley said the facility willbe at 917 Oxford Loop Road S.E. That is at what was the warehousing portion of the former Lenox Chinaplant. The specific location is called the Hancock Building, whichTilley said is a reference to local real estate man Wills Hancock. Please see PLANT, page 4A

Daily Dispatch/ASHLEY STEVEN AYSCUE

Henderson Police cruisers sit in the parking lot at Hardee’s on the corner of Dabney Drive and Oxford Road after an attempted armed robbery Monday afternoon. Reports indicate a gunman demanded cash, then suddenly fled from the store without it.

Would-be robber asked for cash, then just left without it By AL WHELESS Daily Dispatch Writer

Possibly getting cold feet, an armed, would-be robber fled a local restaurant empty-handed Monday. Police say a gunman entered Hardee’s at 120 Dabney Drive through the side entrance, demanded cash, and then fled without waiting for cooperation from a cashier in a crime that took place about midafternoon on Monday. Wearing a Halloween skeleton mask, the black male pulled out a black handgun, pointed it at a

cashier, demanded money, and then turned away before the employee could even open the register, according to Detective Lt. C.O. Pulley of the Henderson Police Department. He said officers searched the nearby area along Rollins Road, Oak Street and Oxford Road. The suspect was described as 5-foot-8 and 150 to 160 pounds, wearing braided hair, with a red shirt and blue jeans. The investigation was continuing.

Vance School Board members — their feathers ruffled when county commissioners recently began mulling the future of the soon-to-be-vacant Clark Street Elementary building — claimed final say-so on that building’s fate Monday night. Through its attorney, Jerry Stainback, and the legal wording in some related North Carolina General Statutes, the Board of Education made it known that it owns the facility and will decide the building’s fate after the doors shut at the end of the current school year. Students will be moving over to the new elementary school now under construction when it opens for business in August of 2010. School Board Chairwoman Gloria White mentioned that officials of the new Henderson Collegiate Charter School and the Boys & Girls Club need to come see her and her fellow board members to ask for permission to use the structure once it is vacated.

City gives Beacon Light owner 14 days to prove he has financing By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer

The City Council majority on Monday evening agreed to give the owner of the rundown former Beacon Light apartment complex 14 days to produce a letter from a bank or comparable evidence showing he has financing for a renovation and, through that bank, include a letter of credit to cover the city’s interest in demolition should he default on the project. All council members

except Garry Daeke voted for the extension. Daeke had stepped out of the council chambers at the time of the vote, but he told the Dispatch afterward he would have voted no. Councilman Bernard Alston was not present for Monday’s council meeting. The owner, Sharif Abdelhalim, maintained he could not come up with a letter of credit and instead wanted a stay of the council majority’s previously approved demolition ordinance and wanted

the council to allow him to work with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on a time extension to bring the 318 Boddie St. property into compliance. Abdelhalim maintained he wanted to do a renovation, bring the property up to code and meet a city requirement of the property being a place of homeownership. Griffin told the council, “The city needs to be able to maintain its independence for pulling the

trigger outside of HUD’s independence for pulling the trigger in dealing with this in order to protect our interest that, ultimately, this property will be renovated and in compliance or it will be removed, the blight will be removed.” The HUD-sponsored low-income complex, which dates to 1973 and is located on the southeast side of the city, was closed in 2006 at the request of the previous council after the property had become notorious for crime and

unsanitary conditions. The previous council wanted Beacon Light redeveloped with singlefamily homes. Abdelhalim acquired the property for $54,000 in a 2007 foreclosure sale. A majority of the present council in August stood firm in moving ahead with an order to demolish the structures down to a green field, but made clear the city would be willing to work with Abdelhalim.

Henderson-Vance Crime Stoppers receive three statewide awards The Henderson-Vance Crime Stoppers board has won three of the North Carolina Crime Stoppers Association’s five top awards throughout the state for 2008. President Frank Sossamon was presented the Thomas B. Hite Award, given to the “Board Member Of The Year.” The award is presented annually “in recognition of selfless devotion, persistent service and significant contributions to a member Crime Stoppers program.” A total of 92 boards belonging to the state association competed for the five plaques that were presented Sept. 28 during the awards banquet that was held in Boone at the Daniel Boone Inn. The local Crime Stoppers board’s honors also included: • “Board Program Of The Year” — Law enforcement and fire-fighting personnel were brought together to conduct Crime Stopper’s first Church Watch in the summer of 2008 in a large meeting room at South Henderson Pentecostal Holiness Church. The purpose was to give information to representatives of churches to help them prevent crime in the same ways that Community Watch programs work for neighborhoods. Church Watch sessions planned for 2009 were on risk management, fire prevention and terrorism. Plans for 2010 include a two-day program on terrorism by an expert from the North Carolina Crime Prevention Unit. Lt. Irvin Robinson, the Henderson Police Department’s crime prevention officer and coordinator for Crime Stoppers, used the Church Watch as a forum to remind churches that they could request inspections to help them reduce their chances of being victims of crimes. He shared tips that church officials and members could use to protect property and themselves. • “Best Promotional Idea” — In early 2008,

President Frank Sossamon (left) and Lt. Irvin Robinson, Henderson-Vance Crime Stoppers coordinator, with three of the five plaques the state association presented to various boards in Boone on Sept. 28. nine community forums hosted by Crime Stoppers were held at volunteer fire departments in Vance County. Residents were given the chance to gather in a familiar place to discuss the concerns and difficulties of their neighborhoods in relation to safety, crime and other issues. The application for the award said the forums served several purposes, including sharing tips on crime prevention with a wide audience and giving the public the opportunity to meet with law enforcement officers. During the forums, each area was encouraged to organize a community watch, and to create a partnership with Crime Stoppers. The average attendance at each of the sessions was 25 people.

In 2005, Robinson was named “Coordinator Of The Year” at the state level.

The small gatherings also gave Crime Stoppers an opportunity to distribute community watch signs that contained contact information and warned criminals of the presence of the neighborhood organizations. The application concerning Sossamon’s award nomination said he was instrumental in the development of the forums, the community watch signs and the Church Watch program. It credited Sossamon with working “passionately in 2008 to take the message and mission of Crime Stoppers to the communities of Vance County.” Sossamon, who is pastor of South Henderson Pentecostal Holiness Church, succeeded Sam Pearson as president of Crime Stoppers after Pearson died on Jan. 1, 2006.

Abdelhalim was given a 45-day deadline to work out a schedule to bring the property into compliance, with a nine-month compliance deadline. The 45-deadline expired at the start of this month. Griffin said Abdelhalim provided an incomplete response to questions last week, but subsequently provided more information. The terms back in August said if Abdelhalim did not meet the 45-day deadline, then the city would use a nearly $1.3 million letter of credit he has with HUD to pay for demolishing and cleaning the property and would seek a portion of the money posted with HUD to help do the same. One problem now, Griffin said Monday, is City Code Compliance Director Corey Williams talked with a HUD official in Atlanta, who is saying there is no protocol or procedure for the city’s ability to tap into the letter of credit to help proceed with a demolition. Griffin and Williams said the estimated cost of demolition is $250,000, meaning the bond would be approximately $375,000. During the council meeting, City Attorney John Zollicoffer expressed concern about the time Abdelhalim

has had the property and has not done any renovations. Zollicoffer pressed Abdelhalim about how much Abdelhalim has received in fire insurance proceeds Abdelhalim was supposed to spend on renovations that were not apparently done and that HUD was supposed to see were done. Abdelhalim said, “The insurance issue, that is my problem. The development of the property is my problem. And I will take full responsibility for that.” Zollicoffer reminded Abdelhalim the insurance proceeds were given to him under agreement with HUD to renovate the property. “And that’s part of the things that’s supposed to be covered by the bond,” Zollicoffer added. “If you had done that, we wouldn’t be here today.” Abdelhalim said he would not discuss insurance issues and throughout the meeting maintained he could not change what happened in the past. And Abdelhalim maintained, “If the city tells me, ‘Go ahead and start the development of this property tomorrow,’ we’ll go ahead and we’ll do it.” And Abdelhalim maintained HUD would inspect the property

with coverage would wind up paying more. Ignagni was unequivocal in her support for the PricewaterhouseCoopers conclusions. The company is “a world-class firm” with “a stellar reputation,” she said. Late Monday, the accounting firm issued a statement acknowledging it did not look at the entirety of the legislation, only the effects of four provisions that the insurance group wanted analyzed. While not retreating from its findings, PricewaterhouseCoopers underscored an overlooked caveat in its original report: “If other provisions in health care reform are successful in lowering costs over the long term, those improvements would offset some of the impacts we have estimated.” The firm’s study projected that the legislation would add $1,700 a year to the cost of family coverage in 2013, when most of the major provisions of the Baucus bill would be in effect. Premiums for a single person would go up by $600 more than would be the case without the legislation, it estimated. In 10 years’ time, premiums would be $4,000 higher for a family plan, and $1,500 more for individual coverage.

every 30 days to ensure continuous progress. Abdelhalim then claimed the council was the obstacle, prompting Councilmen Michael Rainey and Michael Inscoe to ask whether Adelhalim meant for the entire time Abdelhalim has had the property. “That’s correct,” Abdelhalim replied. When Abdelhalim maintained he was not going to blame anybody, Rainey pointed out Abdelhalim had just done so. And when Abdelhalim maintained he could not do anything about the past, Zollicoffer said, “Two years from now we’re scared we’re going to hear the same thing: What happened today we can’t do anything about two years from now.” Daeke afterward told the Dispatch he had stepped out of the council chambers prior to the vote because he

needed to take a break. Daeke told the Dispatch he would have voted against the 14-day deadline because he believes Abdelhalim has had plenty of time to comply. “He had two years to try to sell it (the property). He tried to sell it,” Daeke said, noting Abdelhalim also unsuccessfully tried for a move toward making Beacon Light the site of rental property. And Daeke noted Abdelhalim still has not come up with a plan, would not talk about the insurance proceeds and would not give an idea about a line of credit. “I don’t feel positive going forward that he’s going to be able to comply with what he says he’s going to do. I hope he can,” Daeke said.

passed, to a conference committee that would reconcile differences in the bills. It’s at that final stage where many expect the real deal will be cut. “We’ve got ourselves a real health care shooting war now,” said Robert Laszewski, a former health insurance executive turned consultant. “The industry has come to the conclusion that the way things are going in Congress, we’ll have a ... formula that will be disastrous for their business, so they can’t stand on the sidelines any longer.” Questions about the technical soundness of the industry analysis by the PricewaterhouseCoopers firm was a big part of the discussion Monday. The release of the study late Sunday on the eve of the federal Columbus Day holiday had Democrats crying foul. “The misleading and harmful claims made by the profit-driven insurance companies are politicking for corporate gain at its worst,” said Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va. Democrats have reason to worry. Insurance industry opposition helped sink President Bill Clinton’s health care plan in the 1990s by fanning fears that people

WASHINGTON — Insurance companies aren’t playing nice any more. Their dire message that health care legislation will drive up premiums for people who already have coverage comes as a warning shot at a crucial point in the debate and threatens President Barack Obama’s top domestic priority. Democrats and their allies scrambled on Monday to knock down a new industryfunded study forecasting that Senate legislation, over time, will add thousands of dollars to the cost of a typical policy. “Distorted and flawed,” said White House spokeswoman Linda Douglass. “Fundamentally dishonest,” said AARP’s senior policy strategist, John Rother. “A hatchet job,” said a spokesman for Senate Finance Committee chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont. But the health insurance industry’s top lobbyist in Washington stood her ground. In a call with reporters, Karen Ignagni, president of America’s Health Insurance Plans, pointedly refused to rule out attack ads on TV featuring the study, though she said she believed the industry’s concerns could be

amicably addressed. At the heart of the industry’s complaint is a decision by lawmakers to weaken the requirement that millions more Americans get coverage. Since the legislation would ban insurance companies from denying coverage on account of poor health, many people will wait to sign up until they get sick, the industry says. And that will drive up costs for everybody else. Insurers are now raising possibilities such as higher premiums for people who postpone getting coverage, or waiting periods for those who ignore a proposed government requirement to get insurance and later have a change of heart. The drama threatened to overshadow Tuesday’s scheduled vote by the Senate Finance Committee on a 10-year, $829-billion plan that Baucus has touted as the sensible solution to America’s problems of high medical costs and too many uninsured. The Baucus bill is still expected to win Finance Committee approval. The insurance industry is trying to influence what happens beyond the vote, when legislation goes to the floor of the House and Senate, and, if

CLARK STREET, from page one Representatives of the charter school made that very request of the Vance Commissioners during their Oct. 5 meeting. Appearing before 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. Looking for a three-year site, they told the county commissioners 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 building 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 hope it will eventually become a tenant in

the proposed Zene Street REEF tobacco warehouse conversion project. 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. Contact the writer at awheless@hendersondispatch.com.

Dalton leads high school curricula panel RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina must be more earnest in creating specialty high schools and drawing up courses that match the needs of growing businesses in regions of the state, Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton said Monday in kicking off a new state commission. The joint legislative Joining Our Businesses and Schools Commission led by Dalton began what’s designed as a nearly threeyear effort to expand “early college” high schools and align them more closely with high-in-demand careers. For example, according to Dalton, a coastal or mountain high school with cooking and hospitality classes may help students win jobs in the tourism industry. “The early college program has had success so far,

“They were committed to doing the project when we first met them.” “They were looking up and down the interstate” from Petersburg, Va., to as far down as South Carolina and back toward Greensboro and Burlington, Tilley said. The state has pledged $110,000 in funding. Tilley said two other sources - a $750,000 Community Development Block Grant and a $300,000 grant from the county - are subject to county government approval. The total investment in the project is being pegged at $21 million, Tilley said. Tilley, when asked about whether Shalag representatives had told

him when they want to get started, replied, “Immediately.” Gov. Beverly Perdue, in making the announcement earlier in the day, said, “Our business-friendly policies, superb quality of life and skilled, productive workforce are helping companies build success in our state.” “North Carolina continues to be attractive to new companies because of our top-notch workforce and these new jobs are good news for Oxford,” said state Rep. Jim Crawford, D-Granville and who is a businessman in Henderson. State Sen. Doug Berger, D-Franklin, said, “During these tough economic times, I welcome this

but I think it needs to be a little more focused,” said Dalton, a former senator who with the commission is taking on his first highprofile issue since becoming lieutenant governor in January. “We are more likely to attract 21st century jobs.” North Carolina already has 70 early college schools — the most in any state nationwide. Dalton was the chief sponsor of the 2003 bill that helped create the early college schools with the backing of then-Gov. Mike Easley. They provide technical or academic programs designed to help students obtain both a high school diploma and college credit or an associate’s degree with only one extra year of high school, and without paying for college tuition.

billion in bonuses paid to Merrill employees and the investment bank’s mortgage lending losses, as well as whether BofA failed to tell shareholders that it considered backing out of the deal before it closed on Jan. 1. The attorney general’s office — and a U.S. district judge who is overseeing a separate Securities and Exchange Commission case — have questioned whether the bank knowingly hid details about the acquisition from shareholders ahead of a vote to approve the deal. Bank of America agreed to acquire Merrill Lynch in a hastily arranged deal in September 2008, at the height of the financial crisis, just as Lehman Brothers was preparing to file for bankruptcy. When it asked shareholders to approve the takeover, Bank of America said Merrill would not pay year-end bonuses without

its consent. But in August, the SEC said in court papers that BofA had already authorized Merrill to pay up to $5.8 billion in bonuses and didn’t share that information with shareholders. Merrill paid employees $3.6 billion in bonuses for 2008, a year in which it lost $27.6 billion, a record for the firm. Those losses hurt Bank of America, one of the largest recipients of U.S. government bailout funds. The bank received $45 billion in federal aid, including $20 billion to help offset Merrill’s losses. The SEC has said it was impossible to establish whether Bank of America executives knowingly violated securities laws because the terms of the bank’s takeover of Merrill — including the bonus payments — were laid out in documents prepared by outside attorneys for the two companies.

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

Our Opinion

Atkinson rightfully back in charge of state’s schools Congratulations, June Atkinson. You’ve been restored to your rightful place atop North Carolina’s public education system. With the passing of two deadlines for filing of appeals, the administration of Gov. Beverly Perdue has elected not to contest a trial court’s ruling that the State Board of Education violated the North Carolina constitution by naming its chairman, Bill Harrison, to also be chief executive of the state’s schools. Perdue had wanted Harrison in charge of running the Department of Public Instruction’s day-to-day operations. Inconveniently for Perdue, we happen to elect a person be in charge of the Department of Public Instruction. And presently, that person’s name is June Atkinson. Atkinson filed suit to regain her authority, and in July, Judge Robert Hobgood sided with her. As we believe he should have. And the situation really became a moot point when Harrison retired as CEO of the schools at the end of August, before the deadlines for appeal came and went. He remains the chairman of the State Board of Education, but Perdue had no reason to appeal a court decision yanking that fleeting authority away from Hobgood, considering it had already been willingly surrendered. We never did understand the desire of Perdue — North Carolina’s first woman governor — to strip another of the state’s duly elected female politicians of her authority, especially considering Atkinson is also a Democrat and certainly had done no worse with our public schools during her first term in office than did most of the elected men who preceded her. Now, Ms. Atkinson can really breathe easier and get back down to the business of improving North Carolina’s public education and making a strong case that voters had chosen the right woman for the job all along.

Quotable “I will end ‘don’t ask-don’t tell.’ I appreciate that many of you don’t believe progress has come fast enough. Do not doubt the direction we are heading and the destination we will reach.” — President Barack Obama, speaking at the annual dinner of the Human Rights Campaign as he restated his campaign pledge to allow homosexual men and women to serve openly in the military. “Black people of all people should not oppose equality, and that is what marriage is all about,” he said. “We have a lot of real and serious problems in this country, and same-sex marriage is not one of them. — Julian Bond, chairman of the NAACP, speaking during a rally at the Capitol after tens of thousands of gay rights supporters marched from the White House to the Capitol demanding that President Barack Obama keep his promises to allow gays to serve openly in the military and work to end discrimination against them.

Did you get yours? I didn’t get mine. Not yet anyhow, my Nobel Peace Prize. I hope it’s in the mail. I know it’s coming. And I have just the place for it. Above the fireplace, next to the photo of my parents. They’ll be so proud. Of course, they get one, too. And so do you. So does every American. Oh sure, it was President Barack Obama who was “officially” announced the winner Friday. But come on. The nomination deadline was Feb. 1, less than two weeks after his inauguration. What had Obama done by Feb. 1? Nothing. Except get elected. And who did that? We did. So. Did you get yours yet?

Anybody but Bush? I’m serious. Did you hear what Thorbjoern Jagland, the chairman of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, told the media after Obama was announced? He said: “The question we have to ask is, ‘Who has done the most in the previous year to enhance peace in the world?’ And who has done more than Barack Obama?” Hmm. I’d say a lot of people. Or that was a helluva 12 days. After all, Obama, in his first two weeks, didn’t stop any wars. He didn’t dismantle any nuclear plants. He still hasn’t. Afghanistan is a mess.

Iran is saber rattling. Near as I can tell, Obama now has an award that Mahatma Gandhi never won mostly because he is not George W. Bush. In fact, the five Norwegian committee members must have viewed Bush as such a warmongering, divisive Mitch force, that Albom Obama got 100 points Tribune Media just for Services moving in when Bush moved out. And, not to pat our own backs, but who was responsible for that? We were. The American people. OK, so not everyone voted for him, but we’re all in this together. Majority rules, everyone shares. Anyhow, who’s going to admit they voted against Obama today, when it means a nice little Nobel Prize to put in the basement, next to the signed Barry Sanders jersey? Congratulations, fellow planet-savers.

Hoping for the future “We want to embrace the message that he stands for,” Jagland declared. Right. So

did we. Of course, until this past week, we didn’t know you could get a Nobel Prize for that, or we might have voted earlier. But I guess the qualifications have shifted. How else can you explain a prize that has gone to monks, martyrs, surgeons, long-suffering civil rights activists, scientists who labor for peace, Nazi hunters, Albert Schweitzer and Mother Teresa — Mother Teresa! — now going to a man who spent most of last year campaigning for president, and most of this year trying to get a health care plan off the ground. Hey, I like Obama. But if that gets you a Nobel Peace Prize, there’s a lot of people this morning yelling, “Gyp!” Even Obama seemed embarrassed. “I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many transformative figures who’ve been honored by this prize,” he said. At least he’s honest. And humble. Which is more than you can say about the communications director of the Democratic National Committee, Brad Woodhouse, who lashed out at Republicans who criticized the award as having “thrown in ... with the terrorists.” That’s a little harsh, don’t you think? I don’t believe

Brad should get his award. We can give two to someone else. All of this controversy only proves what we have long suspected, that nobody really knows what a Nobel Prize is. It takes a controversy to get it noticed — kind of like Kanye West stealing the mike from Taylor Swift. Jagland readily admitted the whole thing was a gamble on the future, kind of like giving an Oscar to Russell Crowe’s 5-year-old son, figuring he’ll probably earn it one day. Geir Lundestad, executive director of the Norwegian Nobel Institute, told the New York Times: “We are very optimistic that this will turn out to be a success,” which is usually what you say when you give a loan, not a prize. But hey. The committee feels like Obama is a winner, and that makes us winners for electing him, and I am proud, and you should be proud, and we all should clear some space on the bookshelf, because suddenly, this long-time Scandinavian award has got red, white and blue all over it. After all, when Jagland was asked by a reporter if the committee feared being labeled naive, he shrugged and said, “Well, so?” If that’s not an American answer, I don’t know what is.

Letters to the Editor Thanks for support of wellness expo To the editor:

Congrats, Mr. President, now earn it Congratulations to President Barack Obama on his Nobel Peace Prize. I hope he now can do something to earn it. He could begin by bringing peace to American streets, such as those in his hometown. Less than nine months into his presidency, it obviously is early for Obama to be lauded for great achievements. Yet the Norwegian Nobel Committee seems to be saying, why wait? They’re giving him a big “E” for his efforts. According to their declaration, the committee decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 should be awarded to Obama “for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.” The committee “attached special importance to Obama’s vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.” Fine. I would like to attach as much importance to his vision and work for cities without kids killing each other for sport in senseless turf battles, if only I knew what his vision was. He still appears to be searching. A week before the Nobel was announced, Obama was compelled by the fatal videorecorded beating of Derrion Albert, 15, by a mob of teens on Chicago’s South Side to take action. He dispatched two cabinet officers to address a youth violence problem that already has been exhaustively studied. He sent Atty. Gen. Eric Holder and Education Secretary Arne Duncan to meet with local officials in Chicago. The problem is hardly new to Duncan. He was CEO of the city’s public schools before Obama brought him to Washington. He openly lamented in an April interview that, despite many achievements of which he was proud during his seven-year tenure as schools chief, he was

a “total failure” at curbing violence. At least he’s honest. Yet, everybody seems to think they have the answer to youth violence. Just ask them. If I had a dollar for every reader who has written to me, often in capital letters, “IT’S THE PARENTS, STUPID,” the windfall probably could pay my son’s college tuition. They’re Leonard right, of Pitts course. BroDistributed by ken families Cagle Cartoons lead to broken lives for kids. But what’s the prescription? For the black kids who disproportionately are victims and perpetrators of juvenile violence, for example, it is easy to blame black social problems on the absence of black fathers. It’s hard to argue with a black out-of-wedlock birth rate of almost 70 percent. But where are we going to find young marriageable men to marry those unwed mothers? How do we break the cycle of family dysfunction before yet another generation of kids is lost? More police are needed, but they’re not enough, says Phillip Jackson, founder of Chicago’s 13-year-old Black Star Project. “Derrion Albert and others are not getting jumped by organized street gangs,” Jackson told me. “These are just neighborhood kids who get together for what they call ‘mobbin,’ which usually means fighting. They’re not making money with their crime. They just don’t think they have anything better to do.” Jackson didn’t expect much from the surge in programs, services and promises by city

and federal officials that followed Derrion Albert’s death. “We need structural changes,” Jackson said, “not knee-jerk reactions.” Like what? He referred me to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which appropriately treats youth violence like the disease that it is. Their four sensible prescriptions: 1. Teach parents to talk with their kids and solve problems in nonviolent ways. 2. Teach children to resolve tough social situations without using violence. 3. Pair adults with youngsters to mentor and serve as role models for good behavior. 4. Reduce social and economic causes of violence in the young person’s environment. What doesn’t work is buckpassing. Each of these strategies require time, money and concern. Kids need more than cops. They need good mentors and role models. They need something better to do after school than the “mobbing” that leads to gang fights. They need people with whom they can provide early warnings of violence before it happens, without feeling stigmatized as “snitches.” We know these things from programs that have worked to measurably reduce violence in schools and neighborhoods around the country. So, congratulations on your prize, Mr. President. I hope you can earn it now, not just overseas but also here at home, too. We’ve diagnosed the youth violence virus for decades. It’s time to give more attention to prescriptions that work to stop it.

DEAR ABBY: Since my daughter left home several years ago, I have become extremely anxious on Sundays. In the afternoons it feels like the walls are closing in on me. I feel so depressed I have to leave the house. If I go someplace that is open and unconfined, with lots of people around, I feel fine. When I return to my house in the early evening and dote on my pets, I get back to feeling normal. Abby, some people have said I suffer from “empty nest syndrome.” Others say it’s “cabin fever.” Any thoughts on what I can do about this? — PHIL IN PHOENIX DEAR PHIL: If your daughter left on a Sunday, that may be the reason you become depressed and anxious on that particular day of the week. Or because you are less busy and distracted on Sundays, you become more aware of the fact you are alone. Whether you’re experiencing “empty nest syndrome” or “cabin fever” is irrelevant. Discuss your feelings of depression and claustrophobia with a licensed mental health professional so you can be properly diagnosed and receive help for your problem.

DEAR ABBY: My girlfriend gets weirded out and angry when I hold my kids from a previous marriage in my lap and want her to be close to me at the same time. She says it’s “gross and inappropriate.” She acts like I am trying to be sexual with her, but I’m not — I’m just trying to have

her near me while I’m sitting on the couch with my children. She says I should only be affectionate with them and her separately. Am I the one with the problem here, or what? — DAD IN LAKEWOOD, WASH. DEAR DAD: Your girlfriend may feel competitive with your children, or she may have something in her personal history that makes it difficult for her to differentiate between paternal affection and sexual closeness between adults. If you want concrete answers from her, you need to discuss this subject more fully with her so she can explain why she feels the way she does, because it’s odd.

DEAR ABBY: I have been married nearly a year. My husband and I were together for five years before that. I am his fourth wife. What’s bothering me is he gets most of his mail delivered to his mother’s — things such as his cell phone bill, his paychecks, etc. Everything he owns is in storage in another country. He makes all his phone calls from work and never Dear receives Abby any at U niversal Press home. I saw Syndicate his credit report. He has taken out loans I know nothing about. I love my husband with all my heart, but am I right to think a marriage isn’t supposed to be this way? I feel he has two lives. — IN THE DARK IN TENNESSEE DEAR IN THE DARK: I don’t know how many lives your husband is living, but the answer to your question is no, a marriage is not supposed to be the way yours is. Your husband’s behavior is unusually secretive — and when people are secretive, it is usually because they have something to hide. There are many red flags in your letter, and because of that I’m advising you to talk to an attorney and find out how loans taken out without your knowledge could affect you.

Harris County Constable deputies discovered 21-yearold Cody Jean Plant on Sunday at the home in Cypress, which is about 25 miles northwest of Houston. The deputies went to the home after the owner reported hearing voices and seeing signs of forced entry. Authorities didn’t immediately release the dead man’s identity.

NEW YORK — Owners of Sidekick phones may have lost all the personal information they put on the device, including contact numbers, because of a failure of servers that remotely stored the data. The incident is a huge blow to the reputation of the Sidekick and is a reminder of the dangers of trusting a single provider to safeguard information. The phones are made by a Microsoft Corp. subsidiary and sold by T-Mobile USA, which say many Sidekick owners’ information is “almost certainly” gone. T-Mobile gave customers a $20 refund to cover the cost of one month of data usage on the phone. It also will give certain customers who experienced a “significant and permanent” loss of personal data a $100 customer

appreciation card to be used toward T-Mobile products and services, or their phone bill. T-Mobile said it will contact those customers in the next 14 days. Microsoft spokeswoman Debbie Anderson said Monday there was still a chance some of the lost user data could be restored from a backup system. Engineers were working at it in the Microsoft data center where the failure occurred, she said. The phones were troubled by a data outage a week ago. Service was intermittent last week, and then users started reporting that their Sidekicks were wiped of all personal information. “This has been a terrible experience,” said Mary Boyle, of Silver Spring, Md. She lost more than 500 contacts, 100 pictures, a to-do list and dozens of Web site passwords. She also spent about eight hours on the phone with T-Mobile’s

On Saturday, T-Mobile and Microsoft warned customers not to restart their phones, remove the batteries or let the phones run down their batteries. Boyle said she did none of those things, yet her data disappeared anyway. She switched to a BlackBerry from Verizon Wireless on Monday, and said she had no intention of paying T-Mobile for quitting her contract early. “As far as I’m concerned, they very much broke their contract with me before I broke theirs,” she said. Although the underlying data services were working again Monday, T-Mobile was still advising customers not to reset their phones. T-Mobile also was listing all Sidekicks as “out of stock” on its Web site Monday. It’s not clear how many customers were affected.

Phillies rally to win Game 4, series

Significance of Duke’s ‘signature’ win obvious Sometimes a season-turning victory is not apparent until viewed with 20-20 hindsight at the end of the campaign. Only later did the importance of last year’s 27-17 N.C. State win at Duke become obvious, starting a four-game winning streak that sent the Wolfpack to the PapaJohns.com Bowl. But the significance of the Blue Devils’ 49-28 thrashing of State Saturday, for the year and for the program, is instantly eye-catching. “I don’t know how many wins are quote, ‘signature wins,’ I’ve always kind of kept those to myself,” Duke head coach David Cutcliffe mused afterwards. “But I probably will put Mike a ball that S osna recognizes Dispatch this game ACC Columnist in my office. It’s certainly worthy of that.” All post-game analyses started with the standout performance of Blue Devils’ senior quarterback Thaddeus Lewis, and with good reason. Lewis was 40-of-50 passing for 459 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions, setting school and career records in the process. If Duke receivers had not dropped five other catchable balls, the stats would have been even more phenomenal. But the success of the Devil’s passing game against the top-ranked conference defense — though so questionable against the pass that State head coach Tom O’Brien started his fifth defensive secondary combination in six games — impacted the game in other notable ways as well. Duke enjoyed a huge, twoto-one advantage in time of possession. Even when the teams were trading touchdowns the first six possessions of the game, State scored quicker – including a oneplay 63-yard Russell Wilson to Owen Spencer touchdown pass – meaning the Wolfpack defense had to work longer and harder on the field. Similarly in the second half, State’s only score came on a T.J. Graham 93-yard kickoff return – “he’s way too fast to be playing football,” joked Cutcliffe – sandwiched between two Blue Devil touchdown drives of 97 and 72 yards respectively, meaning the Pack’s defenders were on the field for almost nine consecutive minutes of playing time. That advantage kept the

Philadelphia’s Jayson Werth, back, jumps onto the backs of teammates as they celebrate their 5-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies in Game 4 of the National League baseball division series Monday.

DENVER — Chase Utley ducked near second base. The rest of the Philadelphia Phillies never flinched. Ryan Howard hit a two-run double with two outs in the ninth inning and scored on Jayson Werth’s single as Philadelphia rallied past the Colorado Rockies 5-4 in Game 4 Monday night to reach the NL championship series. Brad Lidge, bouncing back from a rugged regular season, earned his second consecutive save by again retiring cleanup batter Troy Tulowitzki with

runners on second and first for the final out. Tulowitzki, who flied out to conclude Game 3, struck out this time and the Phillies celebrated on the infield at chilly Coors Field before retreating to the clubhouse to spray champagne. Next, the World Series champions play Thursday night against Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium in an NLCS rematch from last season. This marked the fourth straight year that none of baseball’s first-round series went to a winner-take-all Game 5. Please see PHILLIES, page 3B

Starting from their own 30yard line with 5:05 left and trailing 27-24, Miami drove 70 yards in 13 plays for the winning score. The march included four wildcat plays for 25 yards, and Brown fell into the end zone on the last with 6 seconds to go. The Dolphins (2-3) climbed back into the AFC East race after losing their first three games. The Jets (3-2) fell into a tie with New England for first place and

CHARLOTTE — It was just a little over two years ago when two-time series champion Tony Stewart accused NASCAR officials of “playing God” by manipulating races through phantom debris cautions. Upset because a series of caution flags contributed to him losing a race at Phoenix, Stewart likened the sport to professional wrestling in complaining that the bogus debris calls changed the outcome of races. “I guess NASCAR thinks ’Hey, wrestling worked, and it was for the most part staged, so I guess it’s going to work in racing, too,”’ he fumed. “I don’t know that they’ve run a fair race all year.” The issue has come roaring back behind Kasey Kahne’s accusation that NASCAR threw a bogus caution Sunday to bunch up the field and avoid a boring runaway win by Jimmie Johnson at Auto Club Speedway. Kahne was likely headed to a top-10 finish when he was wrecked on a restart with 12 laps to go. Kurt Busch started the accident when he bounced off the wall and into Kahne. The contact sent Kahne into Greg Biffle, and both cars spun through the grass with enough damage to ruin their race. But Kahne didn’t blame Busch for the accident. His ire instead was directed at NASCAR, which had called a caution four laps earlier for debris on the track. At the time of the yellow flag, Johnson had an insurmountable lead over the rest of the field that could only be erased by a caution. “We worked hard all day, got ourselves in a good position and I think it was going to be a good points day,” Kahne said. “Then NASCAR threw a debris caution for no debris, which caused Kurt Busch to hit the wall, which caused me to go to the grass and Greg Biffle. ... “It’s disappointing that we had a bad race because of a caution to put a show on for the fans. That’s a good part of the sport — we have to keep the fans excited — but sometimes it ruins people’s days.” There’s one small problem with Kahne’s contention. There was clearly debris on the track. ESPN’s cameras showed a decent sized black wad of something laying on the backstretch when the caution was displayed with 16 laps remaining. A safety vehicle was also shown pulling off the grass and onto the track to presumably recover the item. Not that NASCAR was ever in doubt, though.

Rainy night for Warriors Webb shut out 4-0 in conference loss By KELLEN HOLTZMAN Special to the Dispatch

OXFORD — Even J.F. Webb’s rain-soaked field couldn’t slow down Cardinal Gibbons’ potent offensive attack. The Warriors held Gibbons (9-4, 4-1) to one goal after 40 minutes of play, but the Crusaders busted the game open in the second half in route to a 4-0 win Monday night. “They are a very skilled team,” Webb coach Allie Urbanski said of Gibbons. “A lot of their players play year-round and play on the Triangle teams. We knew coming in that they are definitely more skilled with the ball. We kind of had to adapt our play for their game.” Gibbons fired over 20 shots in the first half, but the Warriors defense didn’t break. “Even though we were down at halftime, it’s been a while since we could be proud of the way we were playing,” said

Urbanski. “And we did play with a lot of intensity. It was kind of like the old Webb team out there again.” Urbanski was content to hold the talented Crusader side to a one-goal half, but Gibbons pushed at the stacked Webb defense from the second half’s opening kick. The Crusaders scored just two minutes into the second when Derek Bartushak beat Webb goalkeeper Geoffrey Cash far post to make it 2-0. “It was tough with them scoring right off the bat, but our guys really did rise above it,” said Urbanski. “They didn’t get disheartened. We’re winning a lot of balls and continuing to play strong.” Down 2-0, the Warriors were still within striking distance when a Gibbons player was taken down inside the box in the 53rd minute, earning the Crusaders’ second penalty kick of the half.

NFL Panthers sign Dexter Jackson to practice squad CHARLOTTE (AP) — The Carolina Panthers have signed former Appalachian State receiver Dexter Jackson to the practice squad. Receiver Jason Chery was released Monday. The speedy Jackson was taken by Tampa Bay in the second round of the 2008 draft. But he played in only seven games last season with limited success as a kickoff and punt returner. He eventually lost his return job last season and was slowed by an ankle injury in preseason this year. The Buccaneers cut him on Aug. 31. Jackson could eventually get a chance as a returner in Carolina.

Dre’ Bly apologizes for showing off SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Dre’ Bly took Mike Singletary’s usual spot at the podium in a team meeting room and apologized. Profusely. His coach watched the whole thing. Bly embarrassed himself and the 49ers during Sunday’s 45-10 home loss to the Atlanta Falcons when he intercepted a pass by Matt Ryan in the third quarter and struck a Deion Sanders-like pose with his right hand to his helmet and the ball unprotected in his left. Problem was, Roddy White knocked the ball loose and Atlanta, leading 35-10 at the time, recovered. The Falcons marched downfield and quickly scored again. Bly said he approached Singletary on Monday morning to apologize for the display, which also included him saying after the game that he’d done nothing wrong because “Dre’s going to be Dre’.” He said he’s always had his antics after making plays, so why change now? “I want to publicly apologize for yesterday. My comments were totally inappropriate. I apologized to coach, I’m not a selfish guy,” Bly said Monday. “I didn’t mean to embarrass him if I did, embarrass my team, embarrass the ownership, embarrass the fans. I’m a prideful guy. I like to have fun. I got caught up in the moment and it was wrong.” Singletary said he would not discipline Bly, an 11th-year veteran and two-time Pro Bowler in his first season with San Francisco, because he didn’t see Bly’s stunt live and would have opted to deal with it then but not a day later.

College Football Miami LB Futch among those out for season CORAL GABLES, Fla.

Futch got hurt in Saturday night’s win over Florida A&M. The team did not reveal which knee was injured, or the severity of the problem. He had started two games, plus was a specialteams player for the Hurricanes. Also Monday, Miami officially ruled cornerback Ryan Hill (shoulder, undisclosed) and defensive end Dyron Dye (left knee) out for the remainder of the season. Hill played in three games for Miami (4-1), while Dye had been battling injuries since training camp.

Dominant Peppers returns just in time MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTE — The details surrounding any Jon Beason-Julius Peppers conversation remained murky Monday. Neither player spoke to reporters, just as they shied away from questions following Carolina’s game a day earlier. The results, however, were clear: Shortly after Beason called him out, Peppers was dominant and the Panthers tasted victory for the first time in 287 days. “Julius Peppers, who’s been under the microscope, so to be speak, I thought was much better,” coach John Fox said at his weekly news conference. Peppers, the four-time Pro Bowl defensive end making an NFL-high $16.7 million this season, entered Sunday’s game against Washington with one sack and 10 tackles in three games, all losses. After watching Minnesota’s Jared Allen record 4.5 sacks last Monday, Beason said on a local radio show that he planned to talk to Peppers about his lack of production. Beason has since clammed up and Peppers has continued his media boycott. Peppers, though, was quite loud on the field Sunday. Peppers had two sacks, two tackles for a loss, three quarterback hurries, four solo tackles and was instrumental in causing a safety in Carolina’s 20-17

But what he was also doing for us was keeping guys up. Whenever something bad would happen on offense, special teams, or even defense, he stepped in as a leader.” Peppers and leader haven’t been used in the same sentence often in Carolina. He seemingly went into a shell after owner Jerry Richardson publicly urged him to take charge of the defense before the 2007 season, finishing with a careerlow 2.5 sacks. He recovered to post a career-high 14.5 sacks in 2008, then spent the offseason doing everything he could to leave town, skipping offseason workouts after the Panthers placed the franchise tag on him.

Peppers eventually relented and signed his one-year tender. He reported to training camp on time and hasn’t missed a practice. Breaking down Peppers’ play has become a cottage industry around these parts. Is he still being double-teamed as much? Did he give up on the play? Has he slowed down? Does he care? Sunday against the Redskins — granted, a team in disarray on offense — Peppers was active. Teammates said he even was vocal in the huddle and at halftime. “He very seldom talks, so when he says something, it carries a lot of weight,” defensive tackle Damione Lewis said. “Guys like playing with him, they like playing hard for him, so it’s nice to have him out talking and being vocal.” Peppers blew through right tackle Stephon

Heyer, forcing Clinton Portis to the outside and allowing Davis to bring him down in the end zone for a safety, Carolina’s only first-half points. Then as Carolina rallied from a 17-2 thirdquarter deficit, Peppers sacked Jason Campbell on a key three-and-out. He later pressured Campbell on an incomplete pass that ended up being Washington’s final possession. “He just came out and made some plays,” Lewis said. “I think he’s always playing hard the whole season, it’s just a matter of getting used to the system.” Learning new coordinator Ron Meeks’ scheme has taken longer than expected, exacerbated by injuries. Beason and Davis were banged up in the preseason and the Panthers finally got starting strong safety Chris Harris (knee) back Sunday. The addition of 340-pound nose tackle Hollis Thomas, signed Oct. 1, finally provided a run-stopping presence in the middle of the line, too. Coming in allowing a league-worst 182.7 yards rushing per game, the Panthers yielded only 74 yards on the ground to the Redskins. “He’s a big body,” Fox said of Thomas. “Every once in a while you get double-teamed there and that size is a real advantage. ... He’s got the experience to do it, the technique.”

Sharpton, Jackson attack Limbaugh’s Rams bid By R.B. FALLSTROM AP Sports Writer

ST. LOUIS — The Revs. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson attacked the bid by Rush Limbaugh to buy the St. Louis Rams on Monday, saying the conservative radio host’s track record on race should exclude him from owning an NFL team. Sharpton sent a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, arguing that Limbaugh has been divisive and “anti-NFL” in some of his comments. Jackson said in a telephone interview that Limbaugh had made his wealth “appealing to the fears of whites” with an unending line of insults against blacks and other minorities. “The National Football League has set high standards for racial justice and inclusion,” Jackson said. “He should not have the privilege of owning an NFL franchise — and it is a privilege.” The civil rights leader said he’s had contact with numerous players and ex-players concerned about the bid. Limbaugh shot back at Sharpton on his radio show. “Now, this saddens me as well this disappoints me,” he said. “I know Rev. Sharpton. Sharpton is better than this. He knows better than this. You know, I didn’t judge Al Sharpton’s fitness to be in radio when he wanted

to earn an honest living for once, given his welldocumented past as the author of the Tawana Brawley hoax. I believe in freedom and I also don’t discriminate.” Limbaugh said last week that he is teaming up with St. Louis Blues hockey team owner Dave Checketts in a bid to buy the Rams. He has declined to discuss details of the offer, citing a confidentiality agreement. In 2003, Limbaugh worked briefly on ESPN’s NFL pregame show. He resigned after saying Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was overrated because the media wanted to see a black quarterback succeed. Transcripts posted on the radio host’s Web site also say that on a January 2007 show, Limbaugh commented: “The NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.” Asked about Limbaugh’s bid to purchase the winless Rams, McNabb said: “If he’s rewarded to buy them, congratulations to him. But I won’t be in St. Louis any time soon.” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league is aware of the concerns voiced by Sharpton and Jackson. “It is very early in the process and no transfer of ownership of the Rams

has been presented to the league for review,” Aiello said. The latest complaints came a day after executive director of the NFL Players Association, DeMaurice Smith, urged players to speak out against Limbaugh’s bid. “I have asked our players to embrace their roles not only in the game of football but also as players and partners in the business of the NFL,” Smith said in a statement Sunday. “They risk everything to play this game, they understand that risk and they live with that risk and its consequences for the rest of their life. “We also know that there is an ugly part of history and we will not risk going backwards, giving up giving in or lying down to it.” Players on the 0-5 Rams, who were routed by the Minnesota Vikings 38-10 on Sunday, tried to distance themselves from the controversy.

“I’m paying attention, but I’m not even touching that one,” running back Steven Jackson said. “Because if I start touching it I might go somewhere I don’t want to go.” Defensive end Chris Long said he just heard Monday that Limbaugh was part of a group seeking to purchase the team. His reaction: “Oh, is that the guy on the radio?” Reminded of Limbaugh’s statements about McNabb, Long seemed to disapprove while adding he didn’t care who owned the team. “I mean, those weren’t great comments at all,” Long said. “But it’s not my job to really comment on that.” Defensive end Leonard Little, the last remaining player from the Rams’ Super Bowl championship after the 1999 season, didn’t want to talk about it. “We’ve got a lot more things to worry about than who’s going to be our owner,” he said.

Yankees pass first test; Angels next DAVE CAMPBELL AP Sports Writer

MINNEAPOLIS — CC Sabathia was superb, A.J. Burnett followed suit and Andy Pettitte added to his resume of postseason success. While everyone was talking about Alex Rodriguez's breakthrough playoff performance, the New York Yankees got three strong starts in a row during their first-round sweep of Minnesota. And that sort of pitching is probably the key to building a run through October. "We're good enough to get through this first round," Derek Jeter said. "But it's only going to get more difficult." The three-game whitewash gave the Yankees a chance to line up their rotation for the AL championship series. They'll host the Los Angeles Angels in Game 1 on Friday night, sending a well-rested Sabathia to the mound with Burnett and Pettitte waiting behind him. "People can say whatever they want about home runs and big hits. I mean, if you don't pitch and you don't defend, you're not going to win," said Rodriguez, who stopped a string of playoff failures with a huge series against the Twins. So far, Yankees newcomers Sabathia and Burnett

Oh, and Pettitte can still pitch, too. All three starters went at least six innings against the Twins, each allowing only one earned run. "The story of this series has been CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Andy Pettitte. All three of them were fantastic," Rodriguez said. "You throw on some good at-bats, you throw on some big clutch hits at the end, but only because of their great performance did we have an opportunity to do well." The 37-year-old Pettitte

won the clincher Sunday night, yielding three hits and striking out seven in 6 1-3 innings before manager Joe Girardi pulled him for Joba Chamberlain. Pettitte's 15th postseason win tied him with John Smoltz for the most in major league history. "Andy was awesome," Girardi said. None of the Yankees starters had career years, but with the highest-scoring team in the majors they didn't need to. Chien-Ming Wang got hit hard before season-ending shoulder surgery. Chamberlain, who moved back to the bullpen against Minnesota, was a mediocre starter during the regular season. Sabathia, Burnett and Pettitte form a fine trio, though. The relievers have delivered, too, with Mariano Rivera finishing things off in familiar fashion. "Once you see it, then you understand why pitching is so important — especially now," catcher Jorge Posada said. It was a big reason the Yankees didn't even reach the playoffs last fall, extending their quest by another year to win their first World Series title since 2000. They haven't won a pennant since 2003, and this is their first appearance in the ALCS since 2004. The Angels have eliminated the Yankees twice

this decade, in the division series in 2002 on their way to winning the World Series and again in the first round in 2005. The Angels have plenty of starting pitching themselves, which should make for a tight series. This time it'll be a bestof-seven instead of a bestof-five. The teams split the season series 5-all. "Home-field advantage is going to help a little bit," Posada said. "I think that's the key to this series." Jeter, Posada, Rivera and Pettitte go all the way back to 1996, when that group won the first of four World Series championships in five years. They'd like nothing more than to add another ring. "You have to pitch in the playoffs," Jeter said after Sunday night's 4-1 victory at Minnesota. "You're not going to have too many 10-9 games. Most of the games are gong to be close. We scored a couple runs late today, but even this game was 2-1 after, what, seven? We're going to have to pitch, have to execute." The Yankees celebrated in Minnesota by jumping on the mound and spraying champagne in the clubhouse, but the party was rather subdued. It's only the first round, after all, and that doesn't mean much in the Bronx Bomber book. They've got the look, however, of a team on track.

game but also showed a newfound ability to strike quickly. Ginn beat Darrelle Revis and two other Jets deep, catching Henne’s long pass just before crossing the goal line. It was a rare sudden strike by the Dolphins, who came into the game with only two completions of 20 yards or more to wide receivers. Jets rookie Mark Sanchez was 12 of 24 for 172 yards and benefited immediately from the addition of Edwards, who caught a 3-yard scoring pass to cap his first series with the Jets. In the fourth quarter,

Edwards made a leaping 34-yard catch on thirdand-21 to put the ball at the 1, setting up Thomas Jones’ score on the next play for a 20-17 lead. Edwards’ biggest play didn’t involve a reception. When Sanchez tried to hit him deep in the fourth quarter, Will Allen was called for pass interference, although video replays showed virtually no contact. The 49-yard penalty gave the Jets the ball at the 3, and Jones scored on the next play for a 27-24 lead with 5:12 left. The Dolphins answered with their winning drive.

because you think guys should be open because you know what kind of coverage they’re in.” This advantage paid off particularly in third down plays, keeping time consuming drives going. Duke converted 13 of 19 third downs during the game, 10 of 12 through the first three quarters, six times on third and seven yards or longer. “The coaching staff put us in a great position,” wide-out Austin Kelly said. “We caught them in the coverages that we wanted them in. Once again it comes back to knowing what they were going to do.” Coming into the game,

State was favored and had the better statistics in scoring and total yardage, both in offensively and defensively. Going forward in the season, the Duke football program has a new sheen and perhaps new respect. “When we look at people (recruits) and tell them we’re going to win, I think people understand we’re serious about football at Duke,” Cutcliffe said. “That’s huge. Whether they’re in the state of North Carolina or wherever people can run, play and compete, we’re going to go recruit them. We’re going to win at Duke. We’re going to win, and we’re serious about playing football at Duke.”

Jason Giambi’s two-out single. Fowler hurdled Utley, who stepped into the basepath to field Todd Helton’s slow grounder, and his quick flip to second base was wide right and mishandled for an error by Rollins. That put two on for Tulowitzki, and Ryan Madson relieved starter Cliff Lee in a double-switch that also brought in left fielder Ben Francisco to replace Raul Ibanez. It paid an immediate dividend when Francisco raced in and made a diving catch of Tulowitzki’s bloop to left for the second out. But Francisco couldn’t get to Giambi’s single fast enough to keep Fowler from

scoring the tying run from second base. Then, Torrealba sent a two-run double to the gap in right-center for a 4-2 Rockies lead. The Phillies led the National League in homers for the second straight season with a franchise-record 224 but they had only gone deep twice in this series before Shane Victorino sent a 99 mph fastball from Ubaldo Jimenez into the Rockies’ bullpen in the first. Werth sent an 85 mph changeup into the Phillies’ bullpen next door in the sixth for a 2-0 lead. Those were the only runs Jimenez allowed in seven otherwise spectacular innings that included seven strikeouts and six hits.

DOLPHINS, from page 1B have lost two straight. The lead changed hands five times in the fourth quarter as the game became a shootout reminiscent of the Dolphins’ Dan Marino days. Filling that role just fine was Chad Henne. In only his second NFL start, Henne completed 20 of 26 for 241 yards and two touchdowns. He threw deep to Ted Ginn Jr. for a 53-yard score to give Miami a 24-20 lead with 10:10 left. The Jets kept answering with Edwards, acquired in a trade with Cleveland a week ago. He caught one scoring pass and set

up New York’s other two touchdowns. The Jets also fooled Miami with fake punts twice to set up a TD and a field goal. The Dolphins’ trickery came via the wildcat, which they ran 16 times. On the game’s opening drive, Miami threw out of the wildcat for the first time this season, and Brown connected with tight end Anthony Fasano for a 21-yard gain. Ricky Williams then ran for 18 yards from the wildcat, and Brown scored on a 1-yard plunge on third down to cap a 7 1/2-minute drive. Miami relied on ball control for much of the

DUKE, from page 1B Duke defenders fresh when it counted – a fourth-andone stop of Tony Baker, who otherwise romped through the Devils defense at a 8.1 yards per carry clip, at the Duke 40, midway through the fourth quarter. “That was a heck of a play,” Cutcliffe said. “That one made me about as happy as anything that happened all night long.” Duke’s freshness and scoring advantage forced State to the air, minimizing Baker’s effectiveness on the ground and allowing the D-line to sack Wilson four times, one less than the Blue Devil season total coming into the contest. “It helped a lot because

we don’t have a lot of guys rotating in and out,” Duke cornerback Leon Wright said about his unit’s limited minutes. “So it gives our D-line a chance to get their legs under them and gives the linebackers and DBs a chance to recuperate.” Lewis attributed his success to the coaching staff’s game preparation, allowing him to anticipate State’s defense and which receivers would be open. “Coming into this game, they showed us exactly what they do on film,” Lewis said. Exactly? “Exactly what they were going to do,” repeated Lewis. “In the back of your mind you want to smile,

Daily Dispatch/ASHLEY STEVEN AYSCUE

J.F. Webb’s Kelby Perren clears the ball out of the Warrior defense during the first half of their 4-0 loss to Cardinal Gibbons Monday night. To view or purchase photos, visit us on the Web at www.hendersondispatch.com.

WEBB FALLS, from page 1B “That was a turning point,” Urbanski said of the third goal. “We got a little flat after that.” The Crusaders added a late goal in the 69th minute when Josh Schrame flicked an Austin Friend cross into the back of the net, stretching the lead to 4-0. Gibbons dominated possession for the duration of the match, rarely allowing Webb to move the ball past midfield. Crusaders keeper Chris Shannon was challenged only once — when he ventured out of his box in the 47th minute to clear the Warriors’ best counter attack opportunity of the game. “We knew we weren’t going to get a lot of chances, but we were hoping to capitalize on the chances we did get — which did

not happen,” Urbanski said. Cash was the bright spot of the game for Webb, coming up with 13 saves, including a few highlight reel-caliber stops in the second half. Gibbons first found the net in the 7th minute when the Warriors failed to clear a Quindlen corner that found its way into the box. The drenched field in front of Cash slowed the ball long enough for Robert Liberatore to connect for the game’s first goal. Webb (7-9, 1-4) will take the pitch again on Wednesday at 6:30 in a rematch of last week’s 4-1 loss at Southern Vance. “If we play with the intensity that we played with tonight, I think we can give them a run for their money,” said Urbanski.

KAHNE, from page 1B “There was debris on the track, it was talked about on the (NASCAR) radio, it was identified as something being there and the caution was thrown,” NASCAR spokesman Ramsey Poston said Monday. And if NASCAR had been wrong, and there was nothing on the track? Oh well. “NASCAR is always going to put the safety of the competitors first, and when it comes to identifying something on the track, we’re always going to err on the side of caution,” Poston said. And that’s what will forever keep this issue alive. Because sometimes there may not be debris on the track, competitors and fans will always form their own opinions on NASCAR’s intent at the time of the caution. In fact, there was a debris caution that went unproven shortly before Kahne’s accusation. Johnson had his normal monstrous lead when the yellow came out with 65 laps left. This time, though, ESPN was in commercial. When the network came out of the break, the debris was not shown, the commentators did not reveal what

was on the track surface and the issue was forgotten as soon as pit stops began. So, for the sake of argument, let’s just pretend we know it was a phantom caution call to “save the show.” It certainly added excitement to the event — Denny Hamlin wrecked as the leader on the restart to bring out another caution — and it prevented Johnson from winning by a half-lap or even more. Plus, NASCAR used that opportunity to sweep the track, a cleanup that wouldn’t have happened had there not been a caution. So view it as a timeout, a break in the action that is the norm in every other sport and often comes at critical moments of an event. Same thing in NASCAR, when a debris caution can both help and harm a driver. “It’s frustrating when you’re leading and pulling away and they say ‘debris caution,”’ thirdplace finisher Juan Pablo Montoya said after the race. “It could be simple, or it could be a screw. In Bristol, I had a flat tire from a washer, you know, with 20 laps to go. “What can you do? Nothing. It is what it is.”

PHILLIES, from page 1B “These couple of games have been kind of character builders,” Howard said. After Dexter Fowler’s hurdle of Utley sparked Colorado’s three-run rally in the eighth, Howard and the Phillies responded with a three-run rally of their own against closer Huston Street. Street was 35 of 37 on save chances this season, but took the loss in the ninth in Game 3 when he allowed Howard’s sacrifice fly to break a 5-all tie. He came in again to face the Phillies, and trouble ensued. Jimmy Rollins singled with one out and Utley drew a two-out walk on a full count. Howard tied it with two strikes when

he doubled up against the right-field wall and Werth followed with a soft single to right-center. “We were a strike away from making a trip to Philadelphia,” lamented Rockies manager Jim Tracy, who went 74-42 after taking over from Clint Hurdle on May 29. The Phillies, the NL’s best road team, swept both games at Coors Field, where the wild-card Rockies went 44-17 under Tracy’s tutelage. The Rockies looked as if they were going to send the series back to Philadelphia when Yorvit Torrealba’s two-run double broke a 2-all tie in the eighth. That came after Fowler scored the tying run on pinch-hitter

He left with the Rockies trailing 2-1 through seven innings after throwing 126 pitches, one shy of his career high. Lee, who gave up six hits in his complete game win in the series opener, allowed three runs on five hits in 7 1-3 innings, and only one of the runs was earned. Lee repeatedly worked out of jams until the eighth. The Rockies had hoped to rely on their resilience that saw them overcome a 18-28 start under Hurdle to finish with a franchise-best record of 92-70. They sent righthander Aaron Cook ahead to Philadelphia on Monday morning to rest up for a Game 5, but he’ll fly home instead. The Rockies made it 2-1

in the sixth on Tulowitzki’s RBI double, but Tulowitzki was doubled up on Garrett Atkins’ sinking liner to third baseman Pedro Feliz. At 45-29, the Rockies posted the best secondhalf record in the National League, but they missed out on a chance to win the division and secure home-field advantage when they lost at LA on the next-to-last day of the season, when Jorge De La Rosa, whose 16 wins after June 1 were tops in baseball, strained his groin and was shelved for the series against Philadelphia. “I’m sure they’re going to be back here in years to come because they’re good and they’re young,” Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said.

For the third time this season in our weekly contest, a Felts has been named the winner. Kayla Felts takes home the prize this week. Sherry Felts and Chris Felts have won in previous weeks, and Sherry holds a one-game lead in the overall standings. After Dispatch publisher James Edwards’ rough week last week, it was sports editor Eric Robinson that plummeted in the staff standings in week six. A homer pick of Georgia Southern pushed Robinson backwards, while Glenn Craven sits pretty at the top with a strong five-game lead after week six. Conference play is in full swing with our area schools. J.F. Webb at Orange should be a good one, and Chapel Hill comes to town to play a Northern Vance team hungry for a conference win. Southern Vance will hope to rebound from Friday’s loss to Webb when they travel to a tough Cardinal Gibbons team. Southern California renews their annual rivalry with Notre Dame this week. With Lou Holtz not a member of the Dispatch staff, the crew unanimously chose USC to win. But don’t sleep on the Irish in South Bend!

Southern Vance will hope to rebound from Friday’s loss to Webb when they travel to a tough Cardinal Gibbons team. Southern California renews their annual rivalry with Notre Dame this week. With Lou Holtz not a member of the Dispatch staff, the crew unanimously chose USC to win. But don’t sleep on the Irish in South Bend!

NFL Broncos 20, Patriots 17 (OT)

DENVER (AP) — Kyle Orton moved Denver from its 2 to the end zone to tie it Sunday, then Matt Prater kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime for a 20-17 victory over New England that made rookie Broncos coach Josh McDaniels a winner over his old boss, Bill Belichick. On a day when they wore mustard-yellow jerseys and vertically striped socks to celebrate their 50th anniversary, the Broncos improved to 5-0 for the first time since 1998 — the last time they went to the Super Bowl. Orton threw for 330 yards and two scores and did his best John Elway impression. After a quick wave to Belichick near midfield, McDaniels ran to the corner of the stadium near where his family sits and pumped his fist repeatedly before sharing bear hugs with his players. And the defense held New England (3-2) scoreless in the second half and looked a lot like the Orange Crush of yore. Denver's fourth-quarter drive certainly wasn't "The Drive" — Elway's classic, 98-yard march that helped beat the Browns 23-20 back in 1987 — but it will go down as one of the best in this franchise's history.

Cowboys 26, Chiefs 20 OT

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Miles Austin scored the winning touchdown in overtime on a 60-yard catch-and-run to cap a huge game in place of the injured Roy Williams. Austin had 10 catches for 250 yards as the Cowboys survived numerous mistakes against the winless Chiefs. Austin also had a tackle-breaking 59-yard touchdown catch to give the Cowboys (3-2) a 20-13 lead with 2:16 left in the fourth quarter. On both plays, he slipped the grasp of cornerback Maurice Leggett and then made safety Mike Brown miss. The loss dropped the Chiefs (0-5) to 2-28 in their last 30 games. Kansas City, winless for 315 days, tied it 20-20 on Matt Cassel's 16-yard touchdown pass to Dwayne Bowe with 24 seconds left. But Austin was unstoppable, rescuing Dallas, which was penalized 13 times for 90 yards. He erased the team record of 246 yards that Hall of Famer Bob Hayes set on Nov. 13, 1966 against Washington. Chiefs linebacker Mike Vrabel made his 11th career touchdown catch to give Kansas City a 10-0 lead.

Falcons 45, 49ers 10

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Roddy White had a 90-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown and a 31-yard TD reception, and Michael Turner ran for three scores to end San Francisco's fivegame home winning streak. White finished with eight catches for a career-high 210 yards against the 49ers' usually stingy defense. Six of those receptions were in the first half for 185 yards, as Atlanta (3-1) came out of its bye week sharp in all phases and finished with a 477-279 advantage in total yards. Matt Ryan completed 22 of 32 passes for 329 yards and two TDs and also ran for a late score. San Francisco (3-2) flopped in its biggest test yet, falling to its worst defeat since a 41-0 loss at Kansas City on Oct. 1, 2006, under former coach Mike Nolan. San Francisco's three turnovers were one more than the team had in its first four games combined.

Cardinals 28, Texans 21

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie returned an interception 49 yards for a touchdown with 2:20 to go and the Arizona defense stopped the Texans three times at the 1-yard line in the final minute. Matt Schaub brought the Texans back from a 21-0 halftime deficit to tie the game and had completed 11 straight when RodgersCromartie, playing with a fractured right index finger, stepped in front of intended receiver Kevin Walter. The young cornerback raced down the sideline, then high-stepped the final 20 yards for the score for the Cardinals (2-2). A 60-yard kickoff return by Andre' Davis helped set up the final Houston threat. Schaub quickly moved the team to the 1, but Chris Brown was stopped on second down, there was an incomplete pass on third and Brown was stopped again on fourth down with 40 seconds left. Kurt Warner topped 300 yards passing for the 50th time in his career: Warner completed 26 of 38 passes for 302 yards, but almost all of them came in the first half.

Seahawks 41, Jaguars 0

SEATTLE (AP) — Matt Hasselbeck returned from being sidelined two games with broken ribs to throw four touchdown passes, and the Seahawks rolled to their biggest home shutout in 25 years. The Seahawks (2-3) were still missing seven starters, including three-fifths of their starting offensive line. Didn't matter: Hasselbeck was back. The three-time Pro Bowl quarterback was in what coach Jim Mora called excruciating pain Monday, after overdoing rehabilitation work in his urgency to return and end Seattle's three-game losing streak. Yet he finished three consecutive practices. Then he emphatically finished off the Jaguars (2-3) and that skid. He completed 18 of 30 throws for 241 yards before resting in the fourth quarter. He last threw four against Arizona on Dec. 9, 2007. Hasselbeck has seven touchdown passes in the two games in which he's been completely healthy this season. Those are the only two games Seattle has won.

Bengals 17, Ravens 14

BALTIMORE (AP) — Carson Palmer threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Andre Caldwell with 22 seconds left to cap an 80-yard drive fueled by Baltimore penalties. All five of Cincinnati's games this season have been decided by seven points for fewer. It appeared the Bengals (4-1) were destined to come out on the short end of this one until Palmer masterfully directed the final drive — with the help of three yellow flags. An illegal contact penalty against Chris Carr and an unnecessary roughness call against Ray Lewis preceded the topper, a pass interference penalty against Frank Walker on third-and-16 from the Baltimore 30 — although the infraction was called by the officials against Ed Reed. On the next play, Palmer found Caldwell over the middle for the winning score. After the following kickoff, thousands of fans directed a derisive chant toward the referee crew. Baltimore (3-2) has lost two straight. The Ravens were limited to one offensive touchdown after averaging 32.5 points in their first four games. A 52-yard interception return for a touchdown by Reed gave the Ravens a 7-0 lead in the second quarter.

Eagles 33, Buccaneers 14

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Donovan McNabb showed he was fine after missing two games with a broken rib, throwing for 264 yards and three touchdowns. Rookie Jeremy Maclin had two TD catches and the lopsided score allowed Michael Vick to take extra snaps at quarterback in the fourth quarter. He completed his first pass in 33 months and had an 11-yard run. The Eagles (3-1) improved to 11-0 after a bye week under coach Andy Reid. The Buccaneers (0-5) remain winless under new coach Raheem Morris and extended their losing to streak to nine games, dating to an 0-4

December that cost them a playoff spot. McNabb was injured running for a score in the season opener at Carolina. He sat out the next two games while Kevin Kolb became the first quarterback to throw for 300 yards in his first two career starts. McNabb didn't hesitate to run, scrambling for 13 yards on his first play from scrimmage. On the next one, he fired a perfect 51-yard TD pass to Maclin to give the Eagles a 7-0 lead.

Steelers 28, Lions 20

DETROIT (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger had a season-high three touchdowns passes for the Steelers (3-2), supported by thousands of black-and-gold clad fans. They went ahead on Rashard Mendenhall's TD run midway through the first quarter and took a 15-point lead in the third on Roethlisberger's 47-yard pass to rookie Mike Wallace. Detroit (1-4) drove into Pittsburgh territory on the ensuing series, but Daunte Culpepper's up-for-grabs pass was intercepted by Ryan Clark. Culpepper bounced back with a 25-yard TD to Dennis Northcutt to pull within eight with 4:57 to go. The Steelers' three-and-out drive gave Detroit the ball back at its 29 with 3:07 to go and two timeouts, but it got to the Pittsburgh 21 before stalling. Steelers linebacker James Harrison had three sacks, matching the total he had entering the game, and forced a fumble, much to the delight of folks who filled Ford Field. The game drew 59,333 fans and at least half looked and sounded like they were rooting for the visitors.

Colts 31, Titans 9

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Peyton Manning's near-perfect start to the season continued as he had 309 yards and three touchdown passes, and the Colts never trailed in beating their AFC South rivals for their NFLbest 14th straight regular-season win. Manning joined Kurt Warner and Steve Young as the only NFL quarterbacks to open a season by throwing for at least 300 yards in the first five games. He will have to wait out a bye week to try and match them with a sixth such game. Indianapolis (5-0) has not lost since its last visit to Nashville and leaves now with a firm grip on the AFC South. The Titans (0-5) have matched their 0-5 start in 2006.

Panthers 20, Redskins 17

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Aided by a disputed call and Jake Delhomme's bold third-down run, the Panthers (1-3) jump-started a sagging season at the expense of embattled Washington coach Jim Zorn. The Panthers scored the game's final 18 points, with Jonathan Stewart's 8-yard run with 9:21 left the go-ahead touchdown. The TD was set up when the Panthers recovered a muffed punt at the Washington 12. The maligned Delhomme later ran a bootleg for a first down with just under 2 minutes left to give the Panthers their first win. The Redskins (2-3) and Zorn took another defeat against a previously winless team despite leading 17-2 early in the third quarter.

Giants 44, Raiders 7

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — After a week of concern over whether Eli Manning would make his 83rd straight start, he threw two scoring passes and led the Giants on touchdown drives on their first four series. Then Manning rested his sore heel. Manning tossed touchdown passes of 30 yards to Mario Manningham and 9 yards to first-round draft pick Hakeem Nicks. He finished 8 of 10 for 173 yards on a day the Giants gained 483 yards. New York (5-0) is off to its best start since winning the Super Bowl in 1990. Backup halfback Ahmad Bradshaw ran for 110 yards and scored on runs of 1 and 9 yards. Oakland quarterback JaMarcus Russell lost three fumbles and was sacked six times as the Raiders' league-worst offense was limited to 124 yards. Russell was 8 of 13 for 100 yards.

Vikings 38, Rams 10

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Brett Favre threw for 232 yards and a touchdown a day after his 40th birthday. Spry and efficient, Favre showed no signs of a letdown after beating the Packers, his former team, last week, dodging defenders and winging passes in every direction to give Minnesota its first 5-0 start in six years. Jared Allen returned one of his two fumble recoveries 52 yards for a touchdown and Adrian Peterson rumbled in for a pair of touchdowns, helping the Vikings to their 400th win (400322-9). St. Louis (0-5) wore throwback uniforms from 1999, a nod to the team's only Super Bowl victory. The Rams looked nothing like the Greatest Show on Turf, bumbling their way to four turnovers and an NFL-worst 15th straight loss.

Browns 6, Bills 3

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Backup kicker Billy Cundiff hit an 18-yard field goal with 23 seconds remaining. Cundiff's kick ended a display of offensive ineptitude between the Browns and Bills in a how-bad-was-it game. Cundiff also made a 24-yard field goal in the second quarter, while punter Dave Zastudil was the Browns' MVP. Zastudil downed seven of nine punts inside the Bills 20, including three inside the 5. Zastudil also provided the gameturning play when Roscoe Parrish muffed a rolling punt. The Browns (1-4) recovered at the Bills 16 to set up the winning score. The Bills (1-4) have lost to winless teams in consecutive weeks following a 38-10 defeat at Miami. They've dropped 12 of their past 15, and coach Dick Jauron's seat keeps getting hotter after the Bills had their third straight 7-9 finish last season. The Browns ended a 10-game losing streak, one short of matching a franchise worst.

Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). A mother figure has been leaning a little too hard on you. She means well, but her methods are misplaced. It would do the both of you some good if you interceded on your own behalf. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There is an article of clothing in your closet that you like but are saving for a special occasion. It's taking rather long for the world to create the opportunity, so why not make that occasion yourself? GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your essentially trusting nature could lead you into a sticky situation if you're not careful. Be more cautious. You don't owe anyone your trust. It's still something that should be earned. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll be pondering a domestic move. This brings up a good question having to do with your priorities. Clarity will come. For now, keep things in the hypothetical. When you hit the right solution, you'll just know. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). From the outside, it appears you've got it all together, though you may not exactly feel that way. If you can't talk to anyone, try to write down what's bugging you. Stating a thing clearly does a lot of good. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You thrive under deadlines. Not everyone is as thrill-seeking as you, so be patient with the steady, quiet ones. They have their place in the beehive, too, even if they don't buzz as much. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A disagreement between two of your friends has gone too far. Your gift for

diplomacy could bring these feuding factions around. Maybe you're not in the peacekeeping mood, but you're oh so effective. Rack up the karma points! SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your flexibility in dealing with conflict is what makes you such an effective employee. People who say you are shifty don't understand the values that inform your decisions. The treetops always sway the most. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The fashions change, and you change right along with them. Thanks to the influence of friends and colleagues, you'll be purging some tired phrases from your conversation and adding some new and interesting lingo. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your gift for impressions has put more than one friend in stitches. Particularly when it comes to people's mannerisms, your aptitude is just plain remarkable. Use this power for good, and make someone laugh. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you had to choose a yoga pose for the day, it would be Child Pose -lying with your forehead on the floor and your arms behind you, trusting yourself to the benign forces of a gentle universe. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Most of your recent concerns are unfounded. You may as well empty out that bucket of worry. Or at the very least, set it down for a second and walk over there where you can't look at it. Your shoulders are straighter already.
