Brothers maintaining family Oxford to replace cemetery, but access difficult

PD boiler 1978 model operating at half capacity

By DAVID IRVINE Daily Dispatch Writer

This weekend will focus the attention of the community and region on cars, cars, cars. Show, Shine, Shag & Dine — an annual event sponsored by Vance County Tourism — begins today with social events for guests at area hotels and motels, continues with a car show on Saturday, and culminates with the East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame reunion and induction ceremony on Sunday. Tourism Executive Director Nancy Wilson estimates that the event will involve 1,500 vehicles and will draw as many as 50,000 fans to the area. The car show on Saturday will include cars of various styles and vintages. They will grace Garnett, Williams and Breckenridge streets in downtown Henderson, where fans can view the cars, talk with the owners, sample foods and buy souvenirs offered by the many participating vendors. Numerous celebrities are scheduled to attend, many with their equally famous cars. Visitors will be able to inspect legendary cars, talk to the owners and drivers and have a photo made with them.

Alton Abbott drives his 1996 Jeep Cherokee 4x4 Thursday afternoon into a muddy portion of a rightof-way path provided for the Abbott family to access their family cemetery off Martin Creek Road. Generations of Abbott family are buried in this isolated half-acre site. Abbott and his brother, Wade, take turns cutting the grass and keeping the area clear.

Efforts for a better route into the half-acre site futile By DAVID IRVINE Daily Dispatch Writer

On the outskirts of Henderson between Vanco Mill Road and Martin Creek Road, the Abbott family cemetery contains some two dozen headstones that document the lives and life spans of the clan. The cemetery may not mean much to the Henderson community at large, but it holds a valued spot in the memories of the Abbott family. Two Abbott brothers, Alton and Wade, alternate maintaining the area so that they and their sisters, Peggy Clayton and Nancy Edwards, can feel it is an appropriate resting place for family members. Now, however, there is a blot on the family memory. The cemetery is all but inaccessible. It was cut off from access from Vanco Mill Road with the construction of the WalMart Distribution Center. The only remaining access to the cemetery is an unpaved and muddy trail from Martin Creek Road. It is navigable with difficulty in a four-wheel-drive vehicle. When the next member of the family is to be buried, it is questionable whether a hearse will be able to enter the cemetery. Alton Abbott has taken up the cause of obtaining more appropriate access to the cemetery. He has approached WalMart and the

Vance County administration without results. Abbott says that when property is cut off through the sale of adjacent land, as the cemetery is, reasonable access must be available. “Does this look like ‘reasonable access’ to you?” he asked a Daily Dispatch reporter, as he drove him along that unpaved trail. When the reporter called the WalMart Distribution Center to get the company’s position on the issue, he was referred to the

RALEIGH — A cadre of murderers and rapists, Obituaries, 4A several of whom victimized young girls, will be set free from North Carolina prisons this month after state courts agreed that a decades-old law defined life sentences as only 80

years long. Dozens more inmates could be released in the coming months unless the state can figure out a legal recourse to keep them behind bars, officials said Thursday. Gov. Beverly Perdue called them “dangerous criminals” who have repeatedly been denied parole.

WalMart home office in Arkansas. A call there connected him with a person who said she couldn’t respond but would have a company official contact him. No telephone call has been received. Meanwhile, when members of the Abbott family want to visit the cemetery to mow the grass or contemplate their relatives’s names, they must drive that muddy trail in a four-wheel-drive truck.

20 violent inmates going free under '70s law By MIKE BAKER Associated Press Writer

OXFORD — The City Commission on Tuesday evening gave the go-ahead to replace a worn- out boiler at the Police Department for a far less cost than was discussed at the previous week’s agenda meeting. The city will pay AireWise Inc. $5,421 from the municipal fund balance and additionally will rely on a $2,500 contribution from Walmart. “This is a bargain,” Commissioner Bob Williford said, drawing chuckles from his fellow commissioners as he noted his paying $6,000 for work on his residence. The boiler dates back to the 1978 dedication of the Police Department building, which is located at 204 E. McClanahan St. at the northeastern edge of the central business district. The boiler has been operating at 50 percent capacity, city officials said in documents. The boiler needed to be replaced for approximately three years, the officials said. And the boiler may not pass state inspection, the officials added. During the Oct. 5 agenda meeting, the commission had agreed to consider approving a budget amendment of $10,254 on Tuesday for the heating system, with the quote being $12,754 from Mike Brummitt Heating & Cooling and with the $2,500 contribution from Walmart to be used to cover the difference. During Tuesday’s regular monthly session, Com-

“I’m appalled that the state of North Carolina is being forced to release prisoners who have committed the most heinous of crimes, without any review of their cases,” Perdue said in a statement. One of the inmates, Bobby Bowden, had argued that a law adopted in 1974 clearly defined life

sentences as just 80 years. The convicted murder believed that the statute, combined with good conduct credits, means his life sentence is now complete. The Court of Appeals sided with Bowden last year. North Carolina’s Supreme Court rejected Please see INMATES, page 3A

an appeal from the state earlier this month after a lawyer from the attorney general’s office had argued that the 80 years likely was supposed to determine when somebody would be eligible for parole. Justices on the high court balked at that argument, and an attorney for Bowden called it “legal gymnastics.” The statute, which was in place for several years in the 1970s, says: “A sentence of life imprisonment shall be considered as a sentence of imprisonment for a term

of 80 years in the state’s prison.” A governor’s list of prisoners set for freedom describes a range of gruesome crimes: John Montgomery, 58, was sent to prison in 1973 for raping a 15-year old girl while on escape from Guilford Correctional Center. Faye Brown, 56, was convicted on a first-degree murder charge for the 1975 killing of a state trooper during a bank robbery. Steven Wilson, 52, went to prison in 1978 for abducting and raping a 9-year-old girl.

All but one of the inmates have been convicted of murder or rape. The 20th, 57-year-old Charles Lynch, was convicted of two counts of second-degree burglary and assault with intent to commit rape. Thomas Bennett, executive director of the North Carolina Victim Assistance Network, said the plan to release the prisoners is dangerous. “This is terrible. This is a disaster,” he said. “This is another example of victims not receiving

missioner Steve Powell recalled the agenda meeting discussion about Brummitt having been nursing the boiler for a long time. Powell, while acknowledging the savings by going with Aire-Wise, said he felt guilty and had concerns about the city awarding the work to someone else after Brummitt had been servicing the boiler. And while Powell praised City Manager Donham for finding another company to do the work for a lower cost, Powell questioned whether the city was following procedure by obtaining a price from the first company and then

N.C. GOP wants formal probe of Perdue campaign RALEIGH (AP) — State Republicans are asking the North Carolina State Board of Elections to investigate Gov. Beverly Perdue’s campaign and why it reported some campaign flights only recently. Republican Party chairman Tom Fetzer said Thursday he has written elections board leaders seeking a formal investigation into Perdue’s committee and the state Democratic Party.

Fetzer said he wanted to make sure elections officials looked closely at 17 private flights the Bev Perdue Committee didn’t disclose until August. Democratic Party spokeswoman Kerra Bolton said the complaint has no merit. The board already is examining private flights by former Gov. Mike Easley going back several years. The board will hold a hearing Oct. 26 about Easley’s campaign.

And Woodlief said the Aire-Wise representative was once connected with Brummitt’s company. According to Woodlief, “It’s basically the same people. They just parted ways.” “Okay, I’m fine,” Powell said.

consideration in the way the system works.” Bowden was convicted in 1975 of two Cumberland County killings and initially sentenced to death. The Supreme Court later took him off death row, sending the case back for Bowden to get concurrent life sentences. He has been denied parole every year since 1987. Corrections officials have worried that the case could eventually affect some 120 inmates sentenced when the law was in place.

N.C. pension falls on funding health at end of '08 By GARY D. ROBERTSON Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH — North Carolina’s state employee pension fund has fallen below a key threshold for measuring its financial health for the first time in 11 years, the state treasurer’s office said Thursday. Treasurer Janet Cowell said an annual actuarial study shows funding for the state employee and teacher pension below 100 percent at the end of 2008 to 99.3 percent. That means the retirement system wouldn’t have all the money needed to pay off all current and future retirees at once. The news won’t affect the benefits of pensioners who currently receive checks, Cowell spokeswoman Melissa Waller said. Funding for the Teachers’ and State Employ-

ees’ Retirement System had been most recently reported at 104.7 percent. The last time funding fell below 100 percent was at the end of 1997, Cowell’s office said. Cowell took office in January. The funding drop was expected as all public employee funds managed by the treasurer took a combined 19.7 percent loss on investments last year as markets fell during the worldwide recession. Markets have rebounded, and the funds were valued recently around $64 billion. The pension still ranks among the best funded in the nation, and the average funding ratio for public pension plans is around 80 percent, according to Cowell’s news release. Cowell said the news should cause lawmakers to consider putting more money in the fund to im-

prove its long-term health. More than 500,000 current and retired workers participate in the state employee and teacher pension fund. “Even if we achieve investment target returns as the economy recovers, it is very likely that the funded status will continue to decline as losses from the 2008 downturn are distributed over the next several years,” Cowell said in a statement. “State and local governments will need to continue to budget

for increased contributions to the system.” The Legislature this year approved raising the state’s contribution to the teacher and state employee pension by a combined $181 million through mid-2011. In February, Cowell had recommended an extra $359 million.

First living donor liver recipient at conference CHICAGO (AP) — Twenty years ago next month, University of Chicago doctors performed the world’s first successful living-donor liver transplant. Alyssa Smith was a 1-yearold from suburban San Antonio, Texas, when she got part of her mother’s liver in that milestone operation. Both are participating in a conference on how liver transplantation has advanced since then.

Local & State

Friday’s day-long conference is at the University of Chicago Medical Center. Smith had a fatal liver disease. Now, she’s a healthy senior at Meredith College in North Carolina. Her mother, Teri Smith, is also doing well. Alyssa Smith says the experience shaped her career choice. She’s majoring in social work and wants to work with kids who’ve had transplants.

According to the act, the AMS will provide an opportunity for all eligible persons to vote on the amendments to the order. Producers will have an opportunity to vote by mail or through their respective Farm Service

Agency County office and by mail for importers. All known cotton importers will be mailed a ballot and referendum instructions. Ballots will also be available on the Internet at cotton.

41 charged in mortgage fraud By LARRY NEUMEISTER Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK — A mortgage fraud crackdown announced Thursday resulted in the arrests of dozens of people, including six lawyers, seven loan officers and three mortgage brokers in four states. Thirty-one people were arrested in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and North Carolina. They were among 41 people charged with engaging in mortgage fraud scams that defrauded lenders out of more than $64 million in home mortgage loans. Of the 10 other defendants, one was expected to surrender later Thursday, four were previously charged and five remained at large. Authorities gathering for an afternoon news conference in Manhattan said the crackdown, dubbed “Operation Bad Deeds,” was aimed at the failure of gatekeepers in the

ConAgra to cut sodium in food products by '15 OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — ConAgra Foods says it will cut sodium from the food it manufactures by 20 percent by 2015. The decision will affect as many as 20 brands and 160 varieties of products. ConAgra says it plans to use different techniques to enhance how its food tastes. Since 2006, ConAgra says it has removed at least 2 million pounds of salt from its products. The company’s brands include Chef Boyardee and Orville Redenbacher’s, among many others.

mortgage industry to act responsibly and legally. “Unfortunately, instead of protecting our financial system, in some cases they abused their positions and joined criminal schemes to steal millions of dollars,” said Richard H. Neiman, the superintendent of banks for New York State. U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in a statement that he found it “especially alarming” that lawyers, loan officers and mortgage brokers treated their professions as a “license to loot banks and profit from other people’s pain.” Those charged also

included an accountant and a residential property appraiser. Authorities said the arrests resulted from a series of investigations conducted by state and local authorities along with federal prosecutors, the FBI, the New York State Banking Department, federal housing authorities, the U.S. Secret Service and U.S. Postal Service investigators. Most of the bank fraud, wire fraud and conspiracy charges brought against the defendants carry potential prison terms of 20 to 30 years each.

Boy feared floating away in homemade balloon found By IVAN MORENO P. SOLOMON BANDA Associated Press Writers


FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — A 6-year-old Colorado boy feared to have floated off in a helium balloon was found safe at his home Thursday, hiding in a cardboard box in the garage attic. Sheriff Jim Alderman turned to reporters during a news conference and gave a thumbs up and said, “He’s at the house.” Alderden said AP Photo/Gerald Herbert an investigator on the scene saw the boy and he was fine, and had apparently been in the attic the whole time.

Court files: Blackmail threats ‘alarmed’ Letterman By JOHN CHRISTOFFERSEN Associated Press Writer

NORWALK, Conn. — David Letterman felt “threatened, alarmed and concerned” about the impact to his family life and career after a newsman tried to blackmail him by disclosing his sexual affairs, according to court documents released Thursday. CBS News producer Robert J. “Joe” Halderman told Letterman in a package of materials he sent that he had “a lot more” documents to back up his threat and needed to “make a large chunk of money,” according to search warrant affidavits. The additional evidence, Halderman said, included letters, e-mails and photos, authorities said. Halderman pleaded not guilty to trying to extort $2 million from Letterman to keep some of the comedian’s sexual affairs quiet. A message left Thursday with Halderman’s attorney was not immediately returned. According to the court documents, the package Halderman sent included a demand letter, a treatment for a screenplay, photos, personal correspondence and portions of a diary. Letterman “feels threatened, alarmed and concerned about the impact of the disclosure of his personal information on his family life and career,” the court records state.

Letterman is not named specifically in the court documents, but they refer to “Client No. 1” as a public figure who faced the threat of “a ruined reputation” and damage to his career and

family life. The documents referred to Letterman’s “great professional success” and said Letterman’s “world is about to collapse around him,” authorities said.

those black-and-white ones. I came down softly. I asked a police officer if the boy was OK and he said there was no one in it,” Humbert said. Neighbor Bob Licko, 65, said he was leaving home when he heard commotion in the backyard of the family. He said he saw two boys on the roof with a camera, commenting about their brother. “One of the boys yelled to me that his brother was way up in the air,” Licko said. Licko said the boy’s mother seemed distraught and that the boy’s father was running around the house. The Poudre School District in Fort Collins, where the boys attend, did not have classes for elementary schools Thursday because of a teacher work day. In a 2007 interview with The Denver Post, Richard Heene described becoming a storm chaser after a tornado ripped off a roof where he was working as a contractor and said he once flew a plane around Hurricane Wilma’s perimeter in 2005. Pursuing bad weather was a family activity with the children coming along as the father sought evidence to prove his theory that rotating storms create their own magnetic fields. Although Richard said he has no specialized training, they had a computer tracking system in their car and a special motorcycle. The Heene family appeared twice on the ABC reality show “Wife Swap,” most recently in March. “When the Heene family aren’t chasing storms, they devote their time to scientific experiments that include looking for extraterrestrials and building a research-gathering flying

saucer to send into the eye of the storm,” it says. While the balloon was airborne, Colorado Army National Guard sent a UH58 Kiowa helicopter and was preparing to send a Black Hawk UH-60 to try to rescue the boy, possibly by lowering someone to the balloon. They also were working with pilots of ultralight aircraft on the possibility of putting weights on the homemade craft to weigh it down. But the balloon landed on its own in a dirt field. Sheriff’s deputies secured it to keep it in place, even tossing shovelfuls of dirt on one edge. After the boy wasn’t found, a Kiowa helicopter was being equipped with an infrared camera to fly at 1,000 feet and help search the area where something reportedly fell from the balloon, Army National Guard Capt. Michael Odgers said. The episode led to a brief shutdown of northbound departures from one of the nation’s busiest airports, said a controller at the Federal Aviation Administration’s radar center in Longmont, Colo. FAA canceled all northbound takeoffs between 1 p.m. and 1:15 p.m. MDT, said Lyle Burrington, the National Air Traffic Controllers Association representative at the center. The balloon was about 15 miles northwest of the airport at that time. Before the departure shutdown, controllers had been vectoring planes taking off in that direction away from the balloon, Burrington said. Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Laura Brown said the agency tracked the balloon through reports from pilots. ___ Associated Press writers Dan Elliott, Sandy Shore and Colleen Slevin in Denver contributed to this report.

News Briefs Dallas man’s cow art sells for more than $500,000 DALLAS (AP) — An auction house says a Dallas man’s collection of cow art and collectibles has sold for a little more than $500,000. After about half a century of collecting, former Neiman Marcus fashion executive Derrill Osborn decided to part with his collection. The auction Wednesday evening featured about 350 items. Dallas Auction Gallery spokeswoman Lauren Shuford Laughry said Thursday that among the auctions highlights were a Donna Cook oil painting depicting 5,000 cattle called “Chisholm Trail Cattle Drive,� which sold for $10,755. Also, she says, a collection of more than 300 vintage toy cows and other farm animals sold for $5,975. Seventy-year-old Os-

born grew up on a New Mexico ranch and then went on to a 40-year fashion career before retiring in 2002.

County to sick workers: Stay home or risk firing PHOENIX (AP) — Employees of an Arizona county with flu symptoms or a temperature of at least 100.4 degrees must stay home from work or risk being fired under a new policy. Pima County Board of Supervisors chairman Richard Elias said Thursday that the new policy is aimed at lessening the spread of swine or seasonal flu illnesses among the county’s nearly 7,000 employees and people who go to government buildings for business. Employees with flu symptoms would be required to stay home until at least 24 hours after the

fever ends. A sick employee who ignores a manager’s order to go home could face disciplinary action or firing. Pima County includes Tucson and its suburbs and runs south along the Mexican border. The new rules will take effect Tuesday and probably be lifted in the late spring.

U.S. hikers’ families submit release petition BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Relatives of three American hikers detained in Iran are appealing to authorities for their quick release. A petition, signed by 2,500 people, was submitted Thursday to the Iranian Mission to the United Nations in New York. Twenty-seven-year-old Shane Bauer, 31-yearold Sarah Shourd and 27-year-old Josh Fattal

were detained in late July after straying over the border during a hike in northern Iraq. The petition says family and supporters of the three “share the deep hope that the Islamic Republic of Iran will show compassion in this unfortunate case and release them as soon as possible.� The three were visited by the Swiss ambassador to Iran in late September but have not had contact with their families.

Georgia to return $330,000 to suicide group ATLANTA (AP) — A judge has ordered Georgia to return $330,000 seized from an assisted suicide group in February. Forsyth County Superior Court Judge Jeffrey S. Bagley wrote in an order filed Oct. 7 that the money should be returned because the state hadn’t filed

the necessary complaint in seven months. Authorities seized the money after four people affiliated with the Final Exit Network, including the group’s president and its medical director, were arrested. They were charged with assisted suicide in the June 2008 death of 58-year-old John Celmer, who had suffered from cancer. Attorneys for the state had argued investigators were delayed because they had so much evidence to sift through. Lawyers for Final Exit said the group’s First Amendment rights were being violated.

Motorcycle club president pleads not guilty, held CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A federal judge has ordered the indicted national president of the Pagans Motorcycle Club held without bond pend-

ing trial on racketeering charges. U.S. Magistrate Judge Mary Stanley held Thursday that David Barbeito is too dangerous to free. Barbeito pleaded not guilty at the hearing and is scheduled for trial in December. The 49-year-old Myersville, Md.-resident also faces state kidnapping and conspiracy charges in West Virginia. Barbeito, who admits holding the club’s top spot since 1989, is the lead defendant in a 44-count indictment accusing 55 members and associates of the Pagans of murder conspiracy, kidnapping and other crimes. Members facing charges are from West Virginia, Kentucky, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Florida.

Our Opinion

Potter fans mobilize to change the world After all these years in the news business, you’d think we would have heard and seen almost everything. “Almost” often proves to be a very big word. On Friday, this newspaper received notice of an event taking place in Maine. Clearly we won’t be covering the story. But the organizers no doubt are hoping to be mentioned in our paper — so score one for them, we suppose — and perhaps that alerting us to the event might get us to publish Associated Press coverage on the day afterward. But it’s one of the stranger press notices we’ve ever received, from the first sentence forward. “BOSTON — The Harry Potter Alliance, a global organization dedicated to bringing the themes of Harry Potter into the real world, is bringing together thousands of Harry Potter fans across the world to fight Proposition One, which threatens to end marriage equality in Maine.” We need not even get into the pros and cons of marriage equality — that is, the right of gay partners to be legally married — without being taken aback by the notion that there’s an entire “alliance” of Harry Potter fans around the world who are trying to “bring the themes” of that fantasy book series “into the real world.” It gets more interesting. “On Saturday morning, October 24, Harry and the Potters and Draco and the Malfoys (two indie rock bands that sing from the perspective of characters in the Harry Potter books) will perform at the North Star Café in Portland, Maine.” Wait — so there are not one, but at least two, “indie” rock bands in the world composed of Harry Potter-book character impersonators? We had no idea. The organizers plan to conduct a oneday “House Cup Competition” (it’s from the books, which we admittedly haven’t read) as part of their “magical day of activism.” We are making a bit light of this occurrence, but it’s obvious that the group is — while having fun — being quite serious. And the Harry Potter Alliance apparently has had success before in using “this model of friendly Hogwarts-house competition” to raise thousands of books that were sent to a youth village in Rwanda. After all, there are millions of Harry Potter book fans worldwide. The potential volunteer base indeed is massive. And mobilizing.

Quotable “It’s almost like an announcement that the bear market is over. That is an eye-opener — ‘Hey, you know what, things must be getting better because the Dow is over 10,000.”’ — Arthur Hogan, chief market analyst at Jefferies & Co. in Boston, on the Dow passing 10,000 and capping a 53 percent comeback since early March. “I’m greatly disappointed he’s not coming to Mississippi. There was no city hit harder than Waveland.” — Tommy Longo, mayor of Waveland, Miss., which took a direct hit from Hurricane Katrina. Longo is among those criticizing Obama for the brevity of his trip to New Orleans on Thursday and for leaving Mississippi out of his itinerary.

If the dress fits, marry Early last summer, my youngest sister, Audrey, called home with news. The baby of our family’s soft voice trilled: “I’m engaged!” Each family member’s reaction to Sister’s news varied. Mama’s was congratulatory. After 36 years, one of her daughters was finally getting married. Oldest sister, Wendy, screamed upon hearing the news. A good scream, mind you. As for myself, I heard the news as I collapsed into Granny Virgie’s house, just completing a dose of torture some call exercise. I sat across the table from my Granny. Numb. I scowled as Granny poured a glass of ice water for me and I mumbled, “Things will never be the same again.” My gloom suddenly faded upon learning the wedding resort destination — Tulum, Mexico. Funny how vacations prompt a swift change of heart. Oddly, when Daddy heard the news, he didn’t say much. Actually, he didn’t say anything. He still hasn’t. So it goes when a father loses his baby girl to matrimony. And so, with wedding engagements come important decisions — and among those, none is as personal as selecting the wedding dress. This quite consuming feat culminated Saturday afternoon, after several trips to various bridal boutiques. Joined by the mother-in-law

to be, Mama, Sister Wendy and I watched an excited Sister Audrey scamper to a fitting room with her favorite gown. Moments later, she emerged, beaming as she balanced herself on a floral pedestal, allowing the dress to flow to the floor. Audrey’s gleam Gina suddenly Eaves shifted to Daily Dispatch a look of Columnist disappointment. “You don’t like it!” she frowned, eyes on Mama. Mama appeared confused. “I didn’t say that,” Mama insisted, shaking her head. Her repeated attempts to convince Audrey failed. Acknowledging the snug fit of Audrey’s top pick, Mama commented, “Just make sure you can sit in it.” That didn’t help matters. Audrey defended her dress as Mama, more frenziedly, insisted, “I didn’t say that I don’t like it!” A dejected Audrey returned to the fitting room with Mama hurriedly shuffling behind her. After the pair slid behind the fitting room curtain, Sister Wendy and I could hear the muffled mother-daughter banter over the gown. Moments later, Audrey

emerged again, modeling another gown. She once more tiptoed onto the small pedestal. “I love it!” I cheered, throwing my hands in the air, ecstatic over the cream-colored satin that hung from my sister’s petite frame. Everyone else frowned. “If Gina likes it, you know it’s bad,” Wendy complained. Audrey agreed. As Audrey returned to the fitting room again, I scanned the boutique, observing other mothers and daughters who, with great similarity, tried one dress after another. Like our clan, the other women didn’t seem to agree on anything. As the sitcom continued, a little boy flashed across the room; an older woman, perhaps his grandmother, scolded him. Finally slumping in a chair with head resting in hands, the boy succumbed to his afternoon’s fate of female fashion. The older woman wrapped her arm around him, smiling as she hugged the disappointed lad. Between fittings for Sister Audrey came the commercial break: “So, are either of you married?” The curious bridal consultant watched as I stole a glance at my oldest sister. We both shook our heads “no.” I couldn’t tell if our spinster lot in life bothered Wendy, but I was proud. There’s much to be said of personal freedom. And with my streak of stubborn independence, I couldn’t imagine

life otherwise. With a raised brow, the bridal consultant continued, “So, what’s the age difference between you three?” Sister Wendy groaned, “I’m 11 years older than Audrey; Gina’s five.” “Oh. So the youngest is getting married first?” Long pause. “Isn’t that funny?” she laughed. She laughed alone. From the distance I overheard Mama and Audrey. “Well, you might gain weight between now and the wedding day,” Mama said as measurements were discussed. “We all have a tendency to spread out some, from time to time.” I laughed as I examined my stomach’s growing bulge, tugging down at my shirt to hide my “spread.” And I couldn’t help but wonder … if I keep losing my own Battle of the Bulge, then I can’t fit into any of these wedding dresses. And if I can’t fit into any of these wedding dress, there goes a lifetime of matrimony. Perhaps my bulge is my best friend? Later that evening, I sat down to a large bowl of Fudge Brownie Chunk ice cream. And then I had seconds.

Letters to the Editor Thanks to those who rendered aid, during and after fire To the editor:

True friendship stands the time and spans the space Putting my son on the bus for his first day of kindergarten caused a weird mix of pride and fear to swirl around my head. I was proud that he was going off on his own, achieving a tiny bit of freedom, and moving forward in life. The fear came from my having met my son and knowing that his unique mix of energy, curiosity and complete inability to follow directions may not endear him to his kindergarten teachers. I also remember my own kindergarten experience including the first few weeks which I spent crying -- uncharacteristically homesick -- likely due to the fairly serious surgery I had undergone a few weeks before. Once I stopped blubbering, I began making friends who remain part of my world to this day. It was sitting with one of them recently that made me wonder which of the kids in my son’s class would he still be sharing his life with 30 years later. This did not come as an epiphany, it developed slowly as I sat a few weeks ago surrounded by long-time friends and virtual family holding one of my oldest friend’s son on my lap. Lauren was not in my kindergarten class, but I did meet her that year beginning a relationship that would include a senior prom, dancing together at each others’ weddings and her standing up as godmother for my child. We were five when we met and now we were two 35-yearolds; me with a five-year-old

and her with a two-year-old and as I suspected, but would not learn for a week, another on the way. There remains an ease in our acquaintance, a familiarity that does not lessen because of time, distance or lack of communication. She lives in Chicago with her husband, Patrick, while I live Daniel B. in Connecticut with Kline my wife, Special to Celine. The The Daily Dispatch demands of children and work, as well the occasional need for sleep make it impossible to see each other or even speak as often as we would like. We spend most months letting email exchanges trial off, calls go unreturned and the best intentions go unfulfilled. That makes time spent together especially precious and surprisingly conducive to sharing our deepest fears and confiding in each other. There are few people in your life you can not see face-to-face for years at a time then pick up a conversation as if you had seen each other the night before. My list of people like that numbers six and it seems unlikely to grow as the years move forward. As we sat that day I shared with Lauren my fears about my son Joshua’s impending first

day of kindergarten. I wasn’t the typical parent lamenting his child growing up, I was worried as to how my son’s total lack of impulse control would play in classroom. Would he hit another student, or perhaps a teacher? How soon would I become a regular in the principal’s office and how would I assure my wife that our son’s troubles were not a reflection of her? We walked the beach that day, pushing her son in a stroller, talking as we always had, as if we did this everyday. I’m not sure if we found any answers, but just sharing with someone who loves you without judging you lessened the weight on both our shoulders. These moments are rare and I thought back to that day as I sat last week in the principal’s office surrounded by the principal, the school psychologist, my wife and my son’s teacher. Joshua would not have an easy go of kindergarten and neither would Celine and I. But, hopefully, 30 years from now, Joshua will have people to help him like I do who are always there even when they are not. Daniel B . Kline’s work appears in more than 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. He can be reached at or you can see his archive at DBKline. com or befriend him at facebook. com/dankline.

I would like to formally thank the Kittrell Volunteer and Bearpond Volunteer fire departments for their attempts to save my home from the devastating fire that took everything. It appears suspicious at this time and that is so sad that someone would do such a thing. We were blessed that no one was home to be injured, but could have been. Thanks again you men and women that put your life out there everyday and night to save us and our property. And to the Vance County Sheriff’s Department, Det. Steve Lyles and the fire experts who are working on the case. Cynthia Ramsey, Kittrell

One year ago: A volatile Wall Street pulled off another stunning U-turn, transforming a 380-point loss for the Dow Jones industrial average into a 401-point gain.


On this date: In 1916, Margaret Sanger opened the first birth control clinic, in the New York borough of Brooklyn. (The clinic ended up being raided by police and Sanger was arrested.) In 1959, American military leader and statesman George C. Marshall died in Washington, D.C., at age 78. In 1962, the Cuban missile crisis began as President John F. Kennedy was informed that reconnaissance photographs had revealed the presence of missile bases in Cuba. In 1968, American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos sparked controversy at the Mexico City Olympics by giving “black power” salutes during a victory ceremony after they’d won gold and bronze medals in the 200-meter race. In 1978, the College of Cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church chose Cardinal Karol Wojtyla be the new pope; he took the name John Paul II.

Five years ago: The Soyuz spacecraft was forced to manually dock with the international space station after it closed in on the station at a dangerously high speed.




Today’s Highlight: On Oct. 16, 1859, radical abolitionist John Brown led a group of 21 men in a raid on Harpers Ferry in western Virginia, where they seized a U.S. arsenal in hopes of sparking a slave revolt. (In the siege that followed, 10 of Brown’s men were killed and five escaped. Brown and six followers ended up being captured; all were executed.)

Spartan volleyball powers past Pats By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor


Southern Vance’s Shauna Terry spikes the ball as Northern Vance’s Robin Butler defends while teammates Hannah Thompson, Ashley McGhee, Lauren Abbott and Natalie Reavis look to dig the ball during the Raiders’ 3-0 win over the Vikings Thursday night.

Arendell Parrott wasn’t on top of its game Thursday, and Kerr-Vance took advantage. The Spartan volleyball squad wasted no time defeating the Patriots in three straight sets (25-13, 25-13, 25-9). Parrott was missing three players due to injuries or illnesses Thursday. “It was nice to get a three-set win. Unfortunately it was against a team that was depleted. I think it showed with their play. You could tell they (Parrott) just weren’t into it,” said KVA coach Paul Ross. “It’s a conference win, we’ll take what we can get.” After the teams traded points early, KVA broke away in the first set when the Patriots began having trouble communicating. Tied at 7, a 10-2 Spartan run made it 17-9. The Spartans had more than enough momentum to put

the set away 25-13 and set the tone for the rest of the match. They opened up the second set with a 5-1 rally. KVA led 18-10 after a couple of Megan Burrows kills. A dink from Haley Ross and a Bailey Hughes ace made it 20-10, and the Spartans carried the set 25-13. The run spilled over into the third set, as the Patriots struggled to get anything going. KVA opened with a 9-1 run. Allison High stepped up to the stripe and served an ace, and three more service points from her made it 18-7 KVA. Parrott finally broke serve to make it 188, but KVA closed out the match with a 7-1 run. Spartan servers kept the Patriots off-balance for much of the third set. Hughes finished the day with 20 assists, three kills and three digs. Ross had six kills and three digs. Morgan Lloyd had seven digs, and Burrows had six Please see KVA SWEEP, page 4B

Raiders 6, Vikings 0

Southern beats Northern in three, sweeps season series By KELLEN HOLTZMAN Dispatch Staff Writer

Heading into the third set down 2-0, Northern Vance looked poised to win its first set of the season against Southern. But the Raiders, fueled by a packed house on senior night, rallied from a 20-14 deficit to take the last frame 25-23 and sweep the Vikings, 25-19, 25-15, 25-23, for the second time this season. Thursday’s win was an especially emotional one for coach Tracey Turner’s seniors. Julia Sumner, Katlyn Moore, Shauna Terry, Tremanisha Taylor and Ashley Meador all played in their final regular-season home match at Raider Gymnasium. “I think that may have helped some to make them realize that this is it,” said Turner. “This is the last go-round for the seniors. I think they did a great job of keeping focus.” Northern controlled much of the


Southern’s Kaitlyn Moore bumps the ball during Thursday night’s match. third set, but the Southern rallied for eight straight points to take a 22-20 lead. Back-to-back kills from Taylor tied the set at 20 and gave the Raiders the advantage. A Southern serving fault brought the Vikings within one at 24-23, setting up the final rally. Northern’s

Emily Ellington came up with a big dig off an emphatic Terry spike, but Taylor ended the Viking surge with a block to close the match. “Emotions are running high and both teams had great crowds. We had lots of enthusiasm in the crowd as well as the court,” said Northern coach William Hoyle. “I hate to lose in three. I think we played better than to get swept in three.” With the Vikings coming off a senior night win of their own against J.F. Webb, Turner anticipated a tough match. “When they beat Webb, we knew that they were bouncing back,” Turner said. “They were absolutely refusing to lose in that last set. I was proud to see that my girls didn’t fold.” Taylor had 11 kills and five blocks for Southern. Moore had 10 digs and fellow senior Meador came up with eight digs, three assists and an ace. Amber Edwards had a kill Please see RAIDERS WIN, page 4B

Rams’ run game too much for Eagles, 35-12 By GEOFF NEVILLE The Franklin Times

FRANKLINTON — Williams’ World was not a good place to be Thursday night for the Warren County Eagles. Reggie Williams, Franklinton’s sophomore standout back, rushed for five touchdowns as the Red Rams rolled past Warren County by a 35-12 margin in a key Northern Carolina Conference showdown at the FHS Football Field. Needing a victory to improve their playoff possibilities, Franklinton got one, and broke a two-game losing streak in the process. The Red Rams are now 4-5 overall and 2-2 in the NCC, while Warren County fell to 1-7 and 0-4. A sign of things to come was offered on the first play from scrimmage, as Williams raced 14 yards into Eagles’ territory — and a late-hit infraction by Warren County was tacked on to the end of the gain. After Williams converted a fourth-and-short inside the 10, he scored from two yards out to cap the opening march. A botched snap

One goal enough for Patriots to put away KVA By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor

Arendell Parrott got the one goal they needed midway through the second half and held on for a 1-0 win over Kerr-Vance on a cool, wet Thursday night. After a scoreless first half, the Patriots — ranked No. 4 among North Carolina 2A teams by the NCISAA — got on the board with a picture-perfect head shot off a corner kick in the 58th minute. The Spartans had some glimpses at the goal late in the second half, but couldn’t get the tying score. “You create the chances, you’ve got to at least be able to get one in, and Parrott did that tonight. They created a chance and they got one, and that’s all they needed,” said KVA coach Rick Frampton. “We had, I would say, four golden opportunities that could have led to goals and we didn’t finish. That’s been our thorn all year is finishing.” Possession went back and forth for much of the first half, but the Spartans

were out-shot 9-1. Kerr-Vance saw two starters leave in the first half due to injury. Brandon Dickerson was taken out in the first eight minutes for an injured knee, and Mark Falkner left with about 10 minutes to go in the half after he injured his knee. “So without two starters, we still take the No. 4-ranked team in the state to 1-0. That’s legitimate,” Frampton said. Parrott had a good opportunity to get their first goal in the first 10 minutes after intermission. After the ball bounced around the crowd gathered in front of the goal, Parrott finally got a good shot off, but it sailed wide. The Patriots continued to horde the momentum early, and had a nice shot from a cross saved by Chris Mitchell at minute 54. After Parrott scored their lone goal, Chris Frampton had a direct look at the net at the 60-minute mark, but had his shot saved. Tyler Bolton drove Please see ENOUGH, page 4B

College Hoops Drew gets the call at point for Tar Heels CHAPEL HILL (AP) — With Ty Lawson gone to the NBA, Larry Drew II is likely to inherit the starting point guard job for defending national champion North Carolina. The sophomore played behind Lawson last season, sharing minutes at the point with Bobby Frasor on a veteran-laden team that cruised through the NCAA tournament on the way to a second title in five seasons. Now coach Roy Williams wants to see Drew grow into the role, saying Drew doesn’t have to be like Lawson to be successful. Drew says he spent the offseason working on his shot and conditioning back home in California under the watchful eye of his father, a former NBA player and an assistant coach with the Atlanta Hawks.

Coach K hopes bigger is better at Duke DURHAM (AP) — Mike Krzyzewski’s 30th Duke team might be his biggest. The Hall of Fame coach has on his roster only two returning guards who arrived at Duke with scholarships — senior Jon Scheyer and junior Nolan Smith. That’s an unusual position for a program that has been dominated by guards through the years, from Bobby Hurley to J.J. Redick. Coach K said Thursday during the team’s preseason media day that for now, his starting lineup probably would include Scheyer, Smith and 6-foot-8 Kyle Singler on the perimeter with 6-foot-10 brothers Miles and Mason Plumlee in the post. The backcourt was thinned this offseason when highflying swingman Gerald Henderson entered the NBA draft early and Elliot Williams transferred to Memphis.

Homer-happy Phils beat Dodgers 8-6 in NLCS opener By BETH HARRIS AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES — Brad Lidge and the Philadelphia Phillies picked up where they left off a year ago against the Dodgers in the NL championship series. Carlos Ruiz and Raul Ibanez hit three-run homers, reliever Ryan Madson got a key out and Lidge finished the Phillies’ 8-6 victory over Los Angeles in Game 1 Thursday night. Manny Ramirez homered, but grounded out weakly with two runners on against a struggling Madson to end the Dodgers’ two-run rally in the eighth. Lidge then worked around a single and a walk in the ninth, making him for 3 for 3 in save chances this postseason — he posted three saves against the Dodgers in last year’s NLCS. Lidge was perfect in save tries last season when the Phillies won the World Series, but led the majors with 11 blown opportunities this year. Home runs dominated on both sides in a game that lasted 4 hours, 2 minutes. Ruiz highlighted a five-run burst in the fifth and Ibanez homered in the eighth for an 8-4 lead. James Loney also connected for the Dodgers. Ramirez, baseball’s alltime postseason home run leader with 29, hit a two-run shot. Los Angeles will start Vicente Padilla against Philadelphia’s Pedro

Los Angeles’ James Loney scores on a single by Russell Martin as Philadelphia catcher Carlos Ruiz scrambles to grab the ball during the eighth inning of Thursday’s game. Martinez on Friday afternoon in Game 2. Philadelphia’s Cole Hamels thrived under pressure last October, earning NLCS and World Series MVP honors. But the left-hander hardly resembled the same pitcher in earning the victory, giving up eight hits and four runs in 5 1-3 innings. It was his first outing since he left the ballpark in the division series against Colorado to be with his wife as she prepared to give birth. At 21 years and 211 days, Clayton Kershaw was the youngest pitcher ever to start a Game 1 in a league championship series, and it showed. The Dodgers lefty was tagged for five runs in the bad fifth, when he set a LCS record for most wild pitches in an inning with three. He also tied the record for most wild pitches in a LCS game, shared by

Tommy John and Juan Guzman. Kershaw allowed four hits in 4 2-3 innings and walked five in his second postseason career start. He worked out of the bullpen in last year’s NLCS, which the Dodgers lost 4-1 to the Phillies. He was 0-2 with a 5.23 ERA in two starts against them during the regular season. The Dodgers’ usually solid bullpen couldn’t contain the Phils. George Sherrill, their fourth reliever of the game, gave up Ibanez’s homer on the first pitch, the first homer off him by a left-handed hitter in 79 at-bats during the regular and postseasons. Ryan Howard and Jayson Werth drew consecutive walks to open the eighth. The Dodgers got two runs back in the bottom half on Russell Martin’s RBI single and a sacrifice fly by Rafael Furcal.

They had the tying runs at first and third with two outs, but Madson won a showdown when Ramirez grounded to third. Kershaw retired five of the previous six batters he faced before the Phillies got to him. Ibanez led off with a single and took second on a wild pitch before Kershaw walked Pedro Feliz. Ruiz sent a 2-1 pitch into the “Mannywood� section in left field for a 3-1 lead. Jimmy Rollins reached on a fielder’s choice, then advanced two bases on consecutive wild pitches. Chase Utley walked and Howard hit a two-run double, extending the Phillies’ lead to 5-1. Howard passed Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt with his 17th postseason RBI, most in Phillies’ history. The Dodgers closed to 5-4 with three runs in the bottom half. Ramirez hit his first home run since Sept. 18, a drive into the left-field pavilion off Hamels. Martin, who led off with a double, scored on Andre Ethier’s grounder. Ramirez’s RBIs gave him 78 in the postseason, putting him three away from breaking baseball’s career record of 80 by Bernie Williams. Los Angeles threatened in the sixth, loading the bases on consecutive singles by Loney and Ronnie Belliard off Hamels and a two-out walk to pinch-hitter Jim Thome by J.A. Happ. But Happ retired Furcal on a grounder to end the inning.

ENOUGH, from page 1B down the field with a little more than nine minutes to go, but his kick was also saved. Kerr-Vance had a couple of opportunities in the final two minutes. A throw-in near the goal yielded nothing, and a corner kick was cleared by the Parrott defense. “I thought we played

hard, I thought we played aggressively,” Rick Frampton said. “I thought defensively we played strong, although we had lapses where we weren’t organized. “We did not play the best our offense can play.” With the loss, KVA falls to 9-11-4 overall,

and is likely on the bubble for a state playoff bid. They travel to Rocky Mount Academy on Tuesday. “We have to win that game if we, in my opinion... have any chance to get into the state tournament,” said Frampton. The Spartans will know Wednesday if they

make the tournament after the selections are made. “I do think that we are one of the best 16 teams in the state. Our record has 10 losses on it, but all 10 are to ranked opponents,” said Frampton.

in control at 28-0. Warren County would pick up its first touchdown on the initial drive of the second half. Using a mixture of run and pass to get downfield, the Eagles went 64 yards in seven plays, with quarterback E.J. Miles converting a sneak from four yards out for a TD with 7:54 left in the third period. After an exchange of punts, Franklinton all but wrapped up the victory

when Williams, on a thirdand-seven situation, took off on a sweep — only to see his progress impeded outside. So Williams quickly turned toward the middle of the field and sped away for a 59-yard touchdown at the 3:43 mark of the third frame. Warren County would deliver the game’s final score courtesy of a 20-yard pass from Miles to Henderson with 1:25 remaining in the contest.

EAGLES, from page 1B possession, and the Red Rams took over again at their own 33. FHS took nine plays to reach the end zone, including a pair of third-down conversions. Williams finished the surge by blasting up the middle from nine yards out. Red Ram Tevin Brown tacked on the 2-point run, which sent FHS to a 14-0 cushion with 1:40 left in the first quarter. It didn’t take long for FHS to dent the score-

board again after Warren County went three-andout and followed with a six-yard punt. Two snaps later, Williams struck again from 14 yards out on the opening play of the second stanza. Franklinton was pulling away at 21-0. Another short punt led to FHS’ next touchdown — a one-yard drive from Wililams that closed out a brief 22-yard march. Following Matt White’s PAT, the Red Rams were

RAIDERS WIN, from page 1B and an assist and Meredith Moore added a dig. After the Raiders dominated the second set, Hoyle made adjustments to his squad to counter Southern’s powerful offensive attack. “To be able to beat this team, you have to be aggressive on offense,” said Hoyle. “If you give them a free ball or a tip or something, they can dig up and run their plays to the middle — it’s really difficult to stop, so we had to be aggressive on offense.” Turner attributed the third set turnaround to better communication between the setter, Sumner, and the rest of the team. “It was the little things that were killing us like not getting the ball to the setter,” said Turner. “She got vocal and told them where she wanted it... The communication improved between her and her hitters.” Communication wasn’t an issue in the second set as Southern dominated from the opening serve. The Raiders jumped out to a 8-0 lead with three aces from Sumner, who finished the match with 20 assists, 12 digs and four aces. Northern narrowed the gap to 15-11, but Terry answered with back-toback kills to silence the Vikings. Northern got close again at 21-14, but another Terry kill ended any hopes of a comeback.

When they get the ball set where they want, it’s tough.” After losing a couple of tough matches against

Cardinal Gibbons and Chapel Hill, Turner was eager to see her team return to top form in the second set. “We were in full control of the attack. That’s the position you want to play in,” said Turner. “Getting back there finally was a good feeling.” The first set was tightly contested, with neither side establishing control until the Raiders pulled

away in the end. Southern went in front 19-13, but Northern answered by scoring five straight. Ellington, who finished with 12 kills and nine digs, served up three aces during the rally that brought the Vikings within one at 19-18. Taylor responded for the Raiders with a kill and a block to push the lead back to three. Southern scored the last three points to take the set, 25-19. Morgan Adcock, who finished with 10 digs, landed the setwinning ace. Hannah Thompson led the Vikings with 12 digs and also tallied six kills and an ace. Ashleigh Blackmon contributed nine digs and a kill and Rebekah Edwards had eight digs and three kills. Setter Rebecca Esquivel spread around 18 assists and chipped in a kill and an ace. The Raiders improved to 14-10 overall and evened their conference record to 5-5. Northern finished the regular season 8-9, 1-8. Both teams will now gear up for the Carolina 3A Conference Tournament, which begins on Monday.

TAMPA, Fla. — Even with starting quarterback Tony Pike on the sideline, Cincinnati’s quick-strike offense kept rolling. The eighth-ranked Bearcats got two touchdown passes from Pike before he left in the third quarter with a sprained left wrist, then backup Zach Collaros ran 75 yards for a score in a 34-17 victory over No. 21 South Florida on Thursday night. Collaros squirted through an opening in the middle of the defense for the long touchdown three plays after replacing Pike. The senior was injured late in the first half, then left after being hit as he released an incomplete pass on Cincinnati’s first possession of the second half. Pike threw scoring passes of 3 and 8 yards to Armon Binns in the second quarter, helping the Bearcats (6-0, 2-0 Big East) to a 17-10 halftime lead over South Florida (5-1, 1-1). The Bulls led early on B.J. Daniels’ 28-yard touchdown pass to Jessie Hester, and closed within 24-17 late in the third quarter when safety Nate Allen intercepted an illadvised pass by Collaros to

set up a 1-yard TD run by Daniels. But Collaros, one of two freshmen quarterbacks who bailed Cincinnati out after two starters — Dustin Grutza and Pike — were injured early last season, was not rattled by the mistake. He came right back to lead a six-play, 70-yard scoring drive that restored the 14-point lead. The big play in the march was a 43-yard completion to Ben Guidugli, who stretched out to get the ball over the goal line for an apparent touchdown. The tight end was penalized for taking his helmet off in the ensuing celebration, and things got worse for the Bearcats when officials reviewed the play and determined his elbow was down at the 1. The penalty, which would have been walked off on the kickoff if it had been a touchdown, moved the ball back to the 16. After USF gave the stalled drive new life with a pass interference penalty on third down, Collaros scored on a 3-yard run, making it 31-17. Collaros finished with 132 yards rushing on 10 carries. Pike, who threw a TD pass for the 16th consecutive game, was 12 of 25 for 140 yards without an interception.

THAT SCRAMBLED WORD GAME Unscramble these four Jumbles, one letter to each square, to form four ordinary words.





SCULIE KAUMPE Ans: HE Yesterday’s



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

(Answers tomorrow) STEED BLAZER EXODUS Jumbles: DITTY Answer: What his domineering bride said at the wedding ceremony — YOU’D BETTER


Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). A mix-up at home must be sorted out. It’s not that big of a deal, so don’t make it into one. Escape into your own world for a while. A little youtime away from your loved ones brings a lot of perspective. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). An old song comes up on the radio, and you sing along. You might be surprised at how you know almost every word. The vast universe is harmonizing with your individual, unique self. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Stock up on a few simple universal gifts. Some opportunities for being charming and thoughtful are just around the corner, and a little preparation will serve you well. Everyone loves a bar of good chocolate. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You might let things interrupt you, throw you off your schedule and otherwise prevent you from being on time and on purpose. This stray from the original plan will actually be lucky for you, as long as you don’t stress out. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When you thumb through travel magazines, the sea seems bluer everywhere else. How warm are those waters exactly? Maybe it’s your turn to find out. Timing is everything. Investigate. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your first reaction to a situation may not be the best. Consider the opposite choice, too. When you think you have to prove yourself, humble yourself instead. Or when you think you can handle it all, ask for help. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Sometimes it seems that you can give of

yourself and your reserves are never exhausted. The well of love in your heart is deep — in fact, it’s infinite once you take away the limitations imposed by your expectations of a return. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ve dealt with the stresses of life in a highly responsible manner. Everyone deserves a free pass once in a while, and this is your turn to opt out and let the others handle things on their own. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you are not already in the habit of setting time aside to meditate, this is the perfect day to begin this lifechanging practice. Ten minutes of silent reflection a day will have a remarkably positive impact. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). That runaway imagination of yours envisions a future that’s very different from your present. Can you be thankful for what you have, even whilst leveraging it for something else? You’ll certainly try. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Those expressions you use often relate to real phenomena. Spirits really can be “raised” and “brightened,” as evidenced by your higher levels of energy when you are around that person who brings you up on all levels. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You join the ranks of the laid back. It’s not a group of slackers like some people think. Some of the most successful people in the world are easygoing. Relaxed people are happy people.
