2 held N.C. inmates being freed have prison infractions on drug charges By MIKE BAKER Associated Press Writer


Traffic stops by the Henderson Police Department’s Narcotics Unit have resulted in two drug-related arrests, Chief Keith L. Sidwell announced. William Barksdale Granger, 44, of 365 Willieville Lane, a passenger in a vehicle stopped in the parking lot of Burger King, 1817 N. Garnett St., was arrested Oct. 15. During the investigation, he and the driver were detained. Police said a search of Granger found approximately 10 grams of powder cocaine, digital scales and cash. Granger was charged with: • Possession with the intent to manufacture, sell and deliver cocaine. • Manufacture of cocaine. • Possession of drug paraphernalia. Granger is being held on $30,000 bond, with a court date of Nov. 9. Darrick Bullock, 32, of 430 John St., the driver of a vehicle stopped in the Please see CHARGES, page 7A

RALEIGH — The violent North Carolina criminals set to be freed later this month because of a court ruling and good conduct credits have racked up more than 250 infractions in prison for offenses such as fighting, weapon possession and theft. Department of Correction records reviewed Friday by The Associated Press show the viola-

tions go as far back as the 1970s but also appear as recently as 2008, raising questions about whether the prisoners are reformed. Each one of the 20 inmates has at least two infractions, and combined Bowden they have a total of 256. They have repeatedly been denied parole. The inmates are scheduled to

be released Oct. 29 after state courts sided with one of the inmates, double murderer Bobby Bowden, that a 1970s law defined a life sentence as only 80 years. The state’s Fair Sentencing Act in 1981 included a retroactive provision essentially cutting all those sentences in half, and good behavior and other credits have shortened the sentences to the point that they are now complete. Bowden had argued before the Court of Appeals in 2008 that

he had accumulated 210 days of good conduct credit, 753 days of meritorious credit, and 1,537 days of gain time credit. But the 60-year-old has also racked up 17 infractions in prison, including two for weapon possession, one for damaging property and several for disobeying orders. Others have equally long rapsheets: William Baggett, a 60-year-old convicted of a 1976

‘Green adventures’ have the potential to increase children’s attention spans Exposure to green spaces is calming and therefore helpful to children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) say researchers at the University of Illinois. This research confirmed earlier results showing that “green” walks improve two key issues of the disorder — atten- Mary Helen Jones tion and impulse Cooperative control. Extension Further, the “degree of green” appears to matter with greater effects from the greenest or most wilderness-like environment. A walk in the forest trumps a walk in the park or playing organized sports in recreational park fields. Park experiences reap better results than a walk in a neighborhood or downtown area. “Green” play more effectively reduced ADHD symptoms than active play in a gym or play on paved surfaces. This should be good news for parents, educa-

tors and child-care providers with approximately two million school-aged children in the U. S. diagnosed with this disorder. Although researchers haven’t investigated how long the “dose of nature” may last, these results do indicate that nature may favorably compare to a “dose of medication.” According to researcher Frances E. Kuo “as little as 20 minutes of outdoor exposure could potentially buy you an afternoon or a couple of hours to get homework done.” Parents and caregivers may want to replace all or part of after-school screen time (TV, computer, etc.) with a walk or outdoor play in the “greenest” area that is accessible to them. Presently, children between the ages of six months and six years spend an average of oneand-a-half hours a day with electronic media, while youth eight to 18 spend a whopping average of six-and-a-half hours a day with electronic media!

Other benefits Increased outdoor play may also reduce childhood obesity which has contributed to greatly increased rates of diabetes


among children. Although some parents are concerned about the effect of outdoor pollution on children’s health, indoor pollutants such as mold, lead, asbestos and secondhand smoke may be more damaging. Improved social competence may also be a benefit of outdoor play. Children not only engage in more creative play outdoors, but they also play more cooperatively in greener areas. When thinking about how to incorporate “green adventures,” remember to: • Plan for outside activities as part of your family routine. For example, after dinner take a family walk, then bath time and story time before bed. Routines make children feel safe because they know what to expect. • Show and teach respect for nature. All creatures have a purpose. Instead of squashing every bug, observe it, find out what it is and how it contributes to our world. • Take indoor activities outside: read books, play games, draw pictures, hold birthday parties, snooze in the sun. • If you enjoy any outdoor activities — gardening, fishing, nature photography — involve

your child in age appropriate ways. • Dress appropriately and enjoy the outdoors in all kinds of weather. • Use all your senses — see, smell, feel, listen and taste, if it is safe to eat. • Take time and get down at eye level with your child to look and talk about your surroundings. Don’t rush. • Advocate for outdoor time at child-care facilities and at schools. Voice support for green areas in town and in every neighborhood so all children have access to a green experience. • Contact the extension center regarding starting a 4-H club with an outdoor focus such as gardening, camping, bird watching, etc. For more information, contact the Vance County Cooperative Extension Center for a copy of the soon-to-be-released publication, “At Your Doorstep: A Family Fact Sheet on Outdoor Play and Learning.” The fact sheet contains many age-specific suggestions for green adventures.

Woodall said a person sent to prison for 10 years before structured sentencing frequently completed the term in just a couple of years. The new laws lead to shorter sentences in the courtroom but less opportunity for inmates to accrue credits, something he supports. Seven of the inmates set for release were once on death row. All but one of them have been convicted of murder or rape, including several who targeted young girls. “Any of these convicts

could be a danger to any man, woman and child in North Carolina,” said Thomas Bennett, executive director of the North Carolina Victim Assistance Network. “We have no assurance that these people have learned anything and changed.” North Carolina’s Supreme Court rejected an appeal from the state earlier this month after a lawyer from the Attorney General’s office argued that the 80-year law was ambiguous and likely was supposed to determine when somebody would be eligible for parole. The 1970s statute 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.”

GRANVILLE, from page one Burnette said. The number of those in the county who voted in the one-stop phase of the 2007 municipal elections was 539, with Butner’s election having been cancelled because Butner was undergoing changing from being a state-run town to an incorporated one. This year additionally marks the first time Stovall voters can participate in early voting. Stovall’s Town Commission previously did not have a resolution in place allowing absentee or onestop voting, but the town commissioners sent a resolution to the state, which gave the approval, and sent the resolution to the U.S. Justice Department,

tion to the text amendment. Two other recommendations from the Planning Board were promptly and unanimously dealt with by the council on Monday evening. One was approving a request by SRS of Henderson to allow the rezoning of a couple of small lots along First Avenue to allow the property to become the site of a clothing and a shoe business. SRS of Henderson wanted the land bordering First, which is the rear part of the property, to be rezoned from High Density Residential to Highway Commercial. The front part of the property, which is located along Andrews Avenue and is adjacent to a BP convenience store, already is zoned Highway Commercial. The other was approving a text amendment permitting tailors in the OIA zoning district as a matter of right. No one spoke in opposition to either of the latter two matters. Councilman Bernard Alston was absent from Monday evening’s council meeting. Sara Coffey, who defeated Alston in the Oct. 6 election, attended the meeting.

which gave the approval, Burnette said. The election is Nov. 3 for all five municipalities in the county. In Oxford, voters will be choosing a mayor for a two-year term and four city commissioners for a four- year term. Oxford’s seven commissioners serve staggered terms. In Stovall, voters will be choosing a pair of town commissioners for a four-year term. Stovall’s five commissioners serve staggered terms. The mayor is up for election to a four-year term, but is unopposed. In Creedmoor, voters will be choosing a pair of city commissioners for a

Attorneys, said many in the courts system believe that criminals become less active as they grow older. But he warned that nobody can be sure whether these inmates are ready to lead normal lives. “A person who has been in prison for a violent crime, and has gotten infractions throughout their time incarcerated, that’s the best predictor for their future activity,” he said. North Carolina inmates sentenced before structured sentencing came into effect in 1994 can rapidly knock time off their prison terms.

Rainey, Rice said the first 20 homeless men to arrive for registration will get in for the night. “It’s not the Durham Hilton,” Baxley told Rainey. “I know that,” Rainey said, with Baxley referring to the hotel to explain that there will not be multiple night reservations at the shelter. And Baxley said, “If we see someone who we think their needs could be better met somewhere else, we have that option of referring out.” Baxley said the nearest shelter for men is in neighboring Granville County and has six beds. City Attorney John Zollicoffer said he hated to be technical, but, “We’re getting into the specifics of your particular homeless shelter. And that is not something really before the board. “That’s what comes before the Board of Adjustment when you apply for a special use permit,” Zollicoffer said, with City Manager Ray Griffin moments later emphasizing the attorney’s point. “And it’s there that the board may impose additional restrictions and requirements that it feels creates the balance between the shelter and the needs of the community,” Griffin said.

Baxley noted that, before volunteers can staff the shelter, they will have to undergo a training process. “We can assure you that we’re going to establish structure and rules and procedures” for the shelter to protect everyone around, Rice added. The plan is to hopefully open the shelter early next month and keep the shelter open until the early spring, Baxley has said. The assumption is the shelter would take in up to 20 people in the first hour each night and, after that, the person would have to have a law enforcement escort or a note from the hospital to get in, Baxley has said.

Sales of recliners a bright spot for furniture industry RALEIGH — Ah, the recliner. The American invention that linked lazing in the living room to television and frozen dinners is one of the few bright spots in a well-worn U.S. household furniture industry. Sales of reclining chairs are getting a lift from the growing popularity of high-tech TVs, home theater equipment and video games, as well as an aging population that is less active. Even the recession, which forced many Americans to cancel vacation plans, seemed to have help sales of the comfy lounge chairs. “People think, ‘I’m not going to travel. Doggone it, when I go home I’m going to be comfortable,’” said Don Hunter, who heads Catnapper, a recliner-focused division of Jackson Furniture Industries in Cleveland, Tenn. Sales of reclining chairs and sofas totaled $3.5 billion last year and are expected to climb to $4 billion within five years, according to trade magazine Furniture/Today and New York-based Easy Analytic Software Inc. Nevada and Arizona, both popular states for retirees, will see sales jump 25 percent. That’s a stark contrast to the nearly 13 percent drop in sales furniture stores saw through September this year, compared with the same nine-month period last year, according to census data. That bad news includes a slight 1.4 percent rise in retail sales from August to September, the government reported this week. On Saturday, as the household furniture industry assembles in High Point for the start of its twice-ayear international trade show, several manufacturers will be showcasing recliners with more gizmos. Berkline is introducing a recliner line starting at $699 with installed stereo speakers, a subwoofer, and a plug for an iPod. The company has an existing model called the ButtKicker, which can be hooked up to a special amplifier that delivers the shakes and vibrations of the action on your

home theater system. Also new this year, is a top end to the line of massage chairs retailing for about $1,200 to $2,400. The deluxe version offered this year costs $2,599, conforms to the shape of the user’s body and includes a system of pressurized air bags for a massage that mimics human hands. For cash-crimped consumers, Berkline is targeting them with models that start as low as $299. That will help drive sales up 10 percent this year, said Rob Burch, CEO of the Morristown, Tenn.-based company. Industry executives also see opportunities for chairs that use electric power to tilt back or lift up a person who may be too weak to do it on their own. Manufacturers “benefit from an older population, and from some technological advances that make them not only comfortable but good for your health,” said Jerry Epperson, an industry analyst with investment bank Mann, Armistead & Epperson Ltd. The recliner was invented by La-Z-Boy in 1929, just months before the great stock market crash. And despite the current recession, recliner sales remain steady, said Paula Hoyas, vice president of upholstery merchandising for La-ZBoy. “They are a staple in American homes, and consumers consider recliners to be an easy and affordable

way to add a bit more comfort to a room,” Hoyas said. The U.S. is the world’s largest furniture market, accounting for about a quarter of global furniture sales, according to the Centre for Industrial Studies, an economic research and consulting company in Milan, Italy. Yet with the recession, American furniture manufacturers and wholesalers limped along with profit margins of less than two percent in the past year, while retailers have stayed afloat on profits of less than 0.5 percent, according to Sageworks Inc., which collects data on private companies. For Americans facing job insecurity and weak home sales — the strongest driver for people to buy new furniture — conserving cash has led some families to open the pocketbook just a bit so that they could at least ride out the recession in comfort. Mystery book author and retiree Pat Browning said she cashed in her stimulus check this spring and bought a $199 blue microfiber recliner at Big Lots! in May. “The comfort level is important because I am home all the time,” said Browning, 80, of Yukon, Okla. “I spend my life sitting at a computer, writing and doing endless research, but the mind can absorb only what the seat can endure. My best writing takes shape when I’m drowsing and dreaming at nap time in my new recliner.”

N.C. wants to create appliance rebate in April RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina consumers could get a break next year buying certain energy-efficient appliance, thanks to federal stimulus money. The state Energy Office has proposed spending nearly $9 million in recovery funds to give 15 percent rebates to people who buy Energy Star-rated appliances during four days in April. The rebate would reduce the price at the cash register on refrigerators, freezers, clothes washers and dishwashers.

Assistant state commerce secretary John Morrison says the rebate also would help cut power bills by getting rid of older

appliances. The U.S. Energy Department now must sign off on the idea, which is expected.

MINI DENTAL IMPLANT SYSTEM How can mini dental implants help denture wearers? The Mini Dental Implant System calls for four of the 1.8 mm mini dental implants, which are about the size of wooden toothpicks, to be gently placed into the front of the patient’s lower jaw. It is a relatively painless procedure that Dr. Ghodrat can perform, usually only requiring a mild anesthesia. Your denture is then carefully adjusted by the dentist to allow it to snap onto the four mini implants. The result? A tight fitting, completely reliable system, that allows you to speak and eat with confidence. All performed in less than two hours, then you may go out and enjoy your favorite lunch.

‘Mighty Mo’ undergoing $18 million preservation Battleship site of surrender of Japanese By JAYMES SONG Associated Press Writer

HONOLULU — Mike Weidenbach has walked across the historic teakwood decks and through the metal hallways of the USS Missouri countless times in the past decade. But he recently realized how massive the aging battleship is from a new perspective — underneath. “I touched the bottom of the ship,” gushed Weidenbach, curator of the iconic World War II vessel that now serves as a memorial and museum. The “Mighty Mo” — the last battleship built by the United States — is spending three months in dry dock at Pearl Harbor undergoing $18 million in maintenance and preservation. “I want it to be here forever,” Weidenbach said Thursday. “I want to die knowing we took care of the ship the best we were able. “For me as curator, this is our primary artifact, so it’s not like a normal Navy ship that has a life span of decades,” he said. “This is supposed to be like the U.S.

Navy tugboats move the historic battleship USS Missouri from its berth at Pier F-5 on Ford Island, Pearl Harbor, Wednesday, to Drydock 4 in the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard for maintenance. The visiting aircraft carrier, the USS Ronald Reagan, is seen in the background left. Constitution. It’s supposed to be hundreds of years.” Weidenbach visited the ship at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and said it was challenging to capture the size and scope of the 887foot vessel in a photograph. “It was overwhelming,” he said. “It’s bigger than you can see. I’ve seen it above the waterline for 10 years, and I knew it was massive. But when you see the other half of it ... gosh.” The 65-year-old warship, now called the Battleship Missouri Memorial, is best

known for hosting the formal surrender of Japan in 1945. Four tugboats guided the Missouri two miles from its historic spot on Battleship Row in Pearl Harbor to dry dock on Wednesday. It has been moored for the past 11 years in Pearl Harbor, where a Japanese attack on Dec. 7, 1941, plunged the United States into World War II. The 54,889-ton vessel now sits on 310 wooden blocks. The hull will be sandblasted and painted,

besides preservation work on top. The ship is scheduled to return to Battleship Row on Jan. 7. BAE Systems Ship Repair has been contracted for the work. Roger Kubischta, the company’s president and general manager, said there’s a tremendous amount of marine growth stuck to the hull that will need to be removed before

Debris found during search for missing F-16 pilot CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Crews searching for an F-16 fighter pilot whose jet hit another fighter off the South Carolina coast have spotted debris and an oil slick in the Atlantic Ocean. The search has been expanded for the pilot, who has been missing

since the planes collided during training exercises late Thursday about 40 miles off Folly Beach. The other pilot landed safely at Charleston Air Force Base. Capt. Michael McAllister of the Coast Guard in Charleston said Friday that the search area is now about 1,300 square

miles. The Coast Guard, Navy, Air Force and other agencies are using boats and planes to search for Capt. Nicholas Giglio of Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter. McAllister said Giglio and his ejection seat would have had beacons, but no signal has been picked up.

The “Mighty Mo” was launched in 1944 and fought in the battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa. It was decommissioned in 1955 but revived in the 1980s, after which it fired some of the first shots of the Gulf War in 1991. Its home now is just a few hundred yards from the USS Arizona, a battleship that was sunk by the Japanese with more than 1,100 sailors and Marines on board during the Pearl Harbor attack. Japan surrendered on Sept. 2, 1945, during a ceremony in Tokyo Bay. Gen. Douglas MacArthur signed for the Allied powers, while Pacific Fleet Commander Adm. Chester Nimitz, signed for the U.S. Foreign Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu and Gen. Yoshijiro Umezu, Chief of the Army General Staff, signed for Japan. Copies of the surrender documents are on display today on the deck where they were signed. Weidenbach said the Arizona and Missouri are connected in history. “The war started and it was a great tragedy with the Arizona, and it ended in peace on the Missouri,” he said.

it can be sandblasted and painted. “There’s corrosion in spots of the hull, but for the most part, the hull is mostly intact,” Kubischta said. In all, eight acres of the boat’s surface need to be preserved. Kubischta said a major challenge will be to tent the entire 1,050-foot dock to prevent dust from leaving the area. The enclosure will need to be airtight with ventilation and air blowers. Three hundred to 400 people will be working on the project almost around the clock. Ninety percent of the work force is from Hawaii, Kubischta said. The Missouri was last in dry dock in 1992, just after it was decommissioned for the second and last time. It’s been moored at Pearl Harbor for the past decade after local supporters beat out groups in Washington state, San Francisco and Long Beach, Calif., for the right to host the memorial. The USS Missouri Memorial Association now operates the ship. More than 400,000 visitors tour the vessel each year and interest seems to be growing. The ship had a record 49,856 visitors in July.

Nation News Briefs

Baptist official apologizes for Nazi comparison ATLANTA (AP) — A key Southern Baptist official has apologized for comparing proposals to overhaul the nation’s health care system with Nazism. Richard Land is president of the Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports he also apologized for bestowing a “Josef Mengele Award” on President Barack Obama’s chief health care adviser. Mengele was a Nazi doctor who conducted cruel experiments at the Auschwitz death camp during the Holocaust. Land said in a letter dated Wednesday that he did not intend to “actually equate anyone in the Obama administration with Dr. Mengele.” The Anti-Defamation League had criticized Land’s remarks, calling them “inappropriate, insensitive and unjustified.”

Baptists’ former president sues over lost election NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The former president of the National Baptist Convention USA has sued the denomination over an election he overwhelmingly lost. Delegates to the convention, the nation’s largest and oldest black denomination, chose the Rev. Julius R. Scruggs over the Rev. Henry Lyons in last month’s vote. In a lawsuit filed Oct. 9 in Washington, D.C., Lyons alleges election

fraud and improper votecounting. He lost to Scruggs on a vote of 4,108 to 924. Lyons, who was forced out as the group’s president in 1999 after an investigation revealed he abused his power and stole about $4 million, had sued in the same court to try to stop the election. Officials with the Nashville-based denomination did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

NOW’s president takes on men behaving badly NEW YORK (AP) — The new president of the National Organization for Women has some harsh words for men she believes are behaving badly — among them, director Roman Polanski and talk show host David Letterman. First, Terry O’Neill condemned as “dangerous” suggestions by some Hollywood luminaries that Swiss authorities were wrong to detain Polanski for possible extradition to the U.S. He faces a charge dating from 1978 of having unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl. O’Neill then fired another salvo after Letterman’s on-air revelation — prompted by an alleged extortion attempt — that he had sex with women working on his “Late Show.” She contended Letterman had created a poisonous workplace environment. Elected as NOW’s leader in June, O’Neill has plenty of other issues on her plate, including health care reform. But she says badly behaved men are at

the core of why women are unequal.

Feds charge man caught in pot bust SOUTH BEND, Wash. (AP) — A Mexican citizen has been charged in one of the biggest known marijuana grows in Washington state. In a Drug Enforcement Administration complaint Rafael Birrueta Mendoza of Michoacan, Mexico, is charged with conspiracy to manufacture marijuana. The complaint was unsealed Friday after Mendoza was taken into federal custody. On June 24, Pacific and Grays Harbor county investigators found nine pot farms in the Willapa Hills about 10 miles (16 kms.) southeast of South Bend. Authorities say more than 20,000 mostly young plants worth an estimated $60 million at maturity were removed. Investigators report that three men fled and one of them, Mendoza, was caught and jailed in Pacific County. According to the complaint, he was carrying a loaded Glock 20 10 mm handgun.

Judge says Va. violated absentee voters’ rights RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A federal judge has ruled that Virginia violated the voting rights of military service members and other Americans overseas when officials failed to mail more than 2,100 absentee ballots in time for last year’s presidential election. U.S. District Judge

Richard Williams also ordered Friday that the Virginia Board of Elections count and certify the absentee ballots. The ballots from military service members and others living outside the state were the focus of a lawsuit filed by Republican candidate John McCain’s campaign, which alleged that they weren’t mailed in time for overseas voters to return them before the polls closed Nov. 4. The missing ballots would not have swung the election in Virginia where President Barack Obama won by nearly 233,000 votes.

Groups upset man wouldn’t marry interracial couple NEW ORLEANS (AP) — At least two civil and constitutional rights groups are calling for a Louisiana justice of the peace to resign after he refused to issue a marriage license for an interracial couple. The head of the American Civil Liberties Union in Louisiana and the Center for Constitutional Rights and Justice in New York said Keith Bardwell should quit immediately. Bardwell is a white justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish in southeastern Louisiana. He refused earlier this month to issue a license or marry Beth Humphrey, who is white, and Terence McKay, who is black. Bardwell said he always asks if a couple is interracial and, if they are, refers them to another justice of the peace. He says children of such unions face troubling futures.

JOBLESS, from page one of layoffs and the willingness of companies to add jobs. September also saw 9,700 more people in the work force of four million, a number too small to change the unemployment rate but still a good sign. “It looks like we are not decreasing as much as we were. If you’re not going down that’s a better situation to be in,” said Stanley Black, an economist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. “It’s mildly encouraging.” North Carolina has lost about 250,000 jobs since the recession started in December 2007. Trade, transportation and utilities companies

lost the most jobs in September after the sector cut 6,500 positions. Government added 13,000 jobs during the month, with teaching and others in education leading the way back onto payrolls. Construction picked up about 2,200 workers. Most economists believe the U.S. economy has started to rebound, but that increased business activity won’t translate into many new jobs for months. Black said employment won’t take off until consumers start spending again — a chicken-and-egg problem because today’s worries about job security are likely to keep checkbooks closed until prospects improve.

CHARGES, from page one parking lot of Wendy’s, 1516 Dabney Drive, was arrested Oct. 13. During the investigation, a search of the suspect found a felonious amount of marijuana, police said. Police said the investigation included a search of the John Street address. Bullock was charged with: • Possession with the

intent to manufacture, sell and deliver marijuana. • Manufacture of marijuana. Bullock is being held on $15,000 bond, with a court date of Nov. 2 Police said both investigations are continuing and more arrests are pending. Send comments to news@

Arizona sheriff launches immigration sweep PHOENIX (AP) — Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has launched a crime and immigration sweep in the Phoenix area, less than a day after officials in Washington limited his powers to make federal immigration arrests. The federal government stripped the controversial Arpaio of his power to let 100 deputies make such arrests but renewed another deal that lets 60 jails officers determine the immigration status of

people in jail. The sweeps Friday in some heavily Latino areas have drawn criticism that Arpaio’s deputies racially profile people, a charge that the sheriff denies. Arpaio says his deputies can still detain illegal immigrants as long as they are turned over to federal authorities within a day or two.

Our Opinion

Old cars, speed draw a crowd If you’ll pardon the play on the famous NASCAR rally cry, we’ll offer a shout: “Gentlemen, park your cars!” Upwards of 1,500 classic cars and drag racing vehicles have been making their way to Henderson for the eighth annual Show, Shine, Shag & Dine event sponsored by Vance County Tourism both last night and all day today and the East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame reunion and inductions on Sunday. These fancy vehicles and their owners will be parked up and down Garnett, William and Breckenridge streets and every where in-between downtown today. In addition, drag racing vehicles will be parked at Vance-Granville Community College’s Civic Center on Sunday. Event organizers project Vance County’s population could more than double for this one weekend if the 50,000 folks they are expecting all get here. There’s much to see, hear and do, and it’s a real boost for Henderson’s economy each third weekend in October. Today’s show in downtown Henderson will feature antiques, muscle cars, Chevys, Fords, Corvettes, Camaros, kit cars, dragsters and motorcycles, among the dozens of categories of vehicles to be on display for viewing and for prizes. Add to the mix a display of Henderson’s own Corbitt trucks, manufactured here during the first half of last century. In addition to the metal and leather on display, various race drivers will be appearing with their famous vehicles, giving visitors a chance to inspect legendary cars and talk to the owners and drivers. Danny Thompson, the son of speed record-holder Mickey Thompson, will be autographing his new book about his dad. The elder Thompson drove the Challenger for a record 406.6 miles per hour in 1960. Joe Timney, of the East Coast Timing Association, will talk with fans about one-mile land speed records set at North Carolina’s “Maxton Mile.” At Sunday’s Hall of Fame induction, Mickey Thompson will posthumously receive the Wally Parks Motorsports Statesman Memorial Award. Also, Dave Christie will be given the Ronnie Sox Memorial Award, and Gene Fulton and Tommy Mauney will get the Thomas “Woody” Andrews Memorial Award. More than a dozen other drag racing greats will be inducted into the Hall of Fame. There’s plenty of entertainment – performances by the Imitations Band, the Al Williams Band and D.J. “Koto” – and cars that will be of interest to the children today – the “Munster Koach,” a hot rod hearse built on a 1928 Model T Ford chassis, made famous on the TV show, “The Munsters.” The public is invited to attend the various events scheduled for today and Sunday. Times and locations are available in a special on Pages 10A and 11A in today’s Dispatch. Today’s forecast promised some sun in the morning before the clouds were expected to roll back in, but a high in the upper 50s/low 60s should make for a pleasant day in the downtown area. The event has drawn significant interest across the East Coast and the nation as thousands of visitors make their way to Henderson each fall. North Carolina Weekend featured last year’s show on their TV show on Thursday and Friday night. Other media, like Fox Sports News, have covered the event on shows like “Inside Drag Racing.” No doubt, the weekend is a huge boost for motels, restaurants and shops in our community. With gasoline about a buck-and-a-half cheaper than last year, we’re expecting that the projection for the number of attendees may be right – despite the economy. When it comes to old cars and speed, some folks just can’t sit at home. Here’s trusting that the weather’s good and that Henderson will again be a great host for all of our out-of-town visitors.

A prize for hope So much has already been said and written concerning President Obama’s startling receipt of a Nobel Peace Prize this past Friday that I don’t want to bore you with a regurgitated version of yesterday’s news. But with so many commentators and pundits, on both the left and right, raising understandable questions about the validity of conferring such an award on an American president who has been in office for less than a year and really accomplished so little… well, it’s gotten me thinking. As a country, we have had many successful past American presidents who have had such a significant, positive impact on the course of global affairs — too many of whom are no longer seen relevant or historically noteworthy, but from whom we must learn. According to Alfred Nobel’s will, the prize for peace was to be awarded to the person who “shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding of peace congresses.” Given that, we can only assume that Mr. Nobel intended the award be given to those who have achieved tangible accomplishments and invested considerable effort, not merely talked of the goals of peace. Interestingly, President Obama was especially recognized by the committee for his goal of nuclear arms reductions and focus on strengthening international diplomacy — certainly two worthwhile foreign policy goals. But President Obama’s one major speech on

nuclear arms reduction is just that…one speech. When compared to the policy aims of past presidents — including my father, who made nuclear arms reduction and eradication a centerpiece of his presidency and beyond — current political chatter seems so Michael broad. And Reagan when compared to the Distributed by foreign policy Cagle Cartoons successes of Ronald Reagan, who personally bridged the coldest of barriers to halt a spiraling nuclear arms race and aggressively confront the Red armies of oppression, the current political discourse looks little more than hope without substance. Ronald Reagan was successful not because of his strong opposition to nuclear weapons, but because he backed that opposition with real pressure on the rest of the world — pressure marked by action. He was able to walk into the 1986 Reykjavik negotiations with the Soviets and tell Gorbachev that a 50 percent reduction in weapons was insufficient and that together they needed to work for the complete elimination of all nuclear weapons. And then Reagan was able to walk out of that meeting and bring to bear all the needed economic, military, social, and political pressure. The next year Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev signed a treaty which abolished an entire category of nuclear

What’s your opinion?

Regime is Iran’s disease; nukes just a symptom The Nobel Peace Prize has renewed prestige in my book. No, not because Barack Obama won it for accomplishments to be determined later. It’s got new luster because Shirin Ebadi has, at great personal risk, effectively come out for regime change in her native Iran. Ebadi, who won the Peace Prize six years ago (under the old rules whereby recipients were expected to do something to earn the prize before receiving it), is Iran’s premier human rights lawyer. In an interview with the editors of the Washington Post, Ebadi “suggested that the nature of Iran’s regime is more crucial to U.S. security than any specific deals on nuclear energy.” Her point is precisely the same point made by so-called neoconservatives for years. The problem with Iran is its regime; its nuclear program is merely a symptom of that problem. Do you lay awake at night worrying about Britain’s nuclear weapons? France’s? Israel’s? Of course not, because stable democracies in general, and stable democratic allies in particular, aren’t a threat. If your neighbor is an upright and responsible citizen, who cares if he has a gun? If your neighbor is a complete whackjob and criminal, you sure as Shinola care if he has a gun. Armed neighbors aren’t a problem,

dangerous ones are. The same logic applies to nations. “Imagine if the government actually promised to stop its nuclear program tomorrow,” Ebadi told the Post. “Would you trust this government not to start another secret nuclear program somewhere else?” Jonah It’s a profound and Goldberg fundamental Tribune Media point. We’ve Services gotten many such promises from the North Koreans. They are worthless. Promises from oppressive regimes cannot be trusted any more than promises from Tony Soprano could be. If a government is willing to betray its own people on a daily basis, what makes anyone think that it won’t betray its geopolitical adversaries? A democratic Iran, Ebadi says, would be unlikely to pursue a nuclear program. The Iranian people fear sanctions more than the country’s corrupt, economically insulated rulers do. Moreover, the Iranian regime needs nukes for its own survival. The Iranian people may like the prestige of being a member of

the nuclear club, but they aren’t eager to pay any price to join. More important, the Iranian people aren’t interested in preserving the current regime, as has been demonstrated by the historic protests this summer. But even if Iran did go nuclear, who really cares as long as the nutty, messianic, totalitarian leadership is gone? A stable, democratic regime concerned with economic growth and normalcy might not be perfect, but which sort of government would you rather see in charge of nuclear weapons? Democracy is not necessarily a cure-all. Palestinians in Gaza held elections and swept Hamas to power. But the Iranians aren’t Gazans. And while America is despised by most nations in the region, the U.S. is actually popular with the Iranian people. Ebadi doesn’t want America to topple the Iranian regime the way it toppled Saddam Hussein’s. Or, if she does, she’s certainly smart enough not to say so outright, given that her family is under constant surveillance by Iranian authorities. What she wants is for America to get its priorities straight. Iran, which has been sponsoring terror for 30 years, is a threat because the Iranian regime is a threat. Change the regime and the threat diminishes or vanishes instantaneously. We had a golden opportunity to acceler-

ate regime change in June, but Obama blinked. Enamored with the idea that “engagement” with evil will produce good, and convinced that a brutal, undemocratic regime is the legitimate representative of the Iranian people, Obama was slow to recognize the moral authority of the democracy movement. By the time he did say what he should have said at the outset, it was clear that his grudging and qualified support for the protestors had no steel to it. The Iranian regime recognized that it would have a free hand to murder and intimidate its own people in order to reconsolidate power after it stole the election. This was a sad moment for the leader of the free world. “Mr. Obama has extended the hand of friendship to a man who has blood on his hands,” Ebadi told the Post. “He can at least avoid shaking the hand of friendship with him.” There are rumors — unconfirmed at this point — that the Supreme Leader of Iran, the Ayatollah Khamenei, is either dead or in a coma. If true, the resulting power vacuum might give Obama the chance for a do-over. That is, if he’s interested in earning a peace prize, not just winning one.

SATURDAY Late Evening


One year ago: Wall Street ended a tumultuous week that turned out to be its best in five years. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 127 points, closing at 8,852.22, but turned in the strong week because of two huge days of gains — a record 936-point jump the previous Monday and an increase of 401 points on Thursday.


On this date: In 1907, Guglielmo Marconi began offering limited commercial wireless telegraph service between Nova Scotia and Ireland. In 1919, Radio Corporation of America was chartered. In 1931, mobster Al Capone was convicted of income tax evasion. (Sentenced to 11 years in prison, Capone was released in 1939.) In 1933, Albert Einstein arrived in the United States as a refugee from Nazi Germany. In 1939, Frank Capra’s comedy-drama “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,” starring James Stewart as an idealistic junior U.S. senator, had its premiere in the nation’s capital. In 1941, the U.S. destroyer Kearny was torpedoed by a German submarine off the coast of Iceland; 11 people died. In 1973, Arab oil-producing nations announced they would begin cutting back oil exports to Western nations and Japan; the result was a total embargo that lasted until March 1974. In 1979, Mother Teresa of India was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Five years ago: Betty Hill, who claimed that she and her husband, Barney, had been abducted, examined and released by extraterrestrials in 1961, died in Portsmouth, N.H., at age 85.




Today’s Highlight: On Oct. 17, 1989, an earthquake measuring magnitude 7.1 struck northern California, killing 63 people and causing $6 billion worth of damage. (The quake hit just before Game 3 of the World Series between the Oakland Athletics and San Francisco Giants at Candlestick Park; the Series was suspended until Oct. 27, at which time the A’s resumed their four-game sweep of the Giants.)

The Corbitt Truck Show and Reunion is held annually in conjunction with the Show, Shine, Shag & Dine Car Show. The Corbitt show is held at the city public parking lot at the intersection of Montgomery and Williams streets in downtown Henderson. Registration opens at 7 a.m. and the show runs until 4 p.m. Numerous Corbitt trucks and farm tractors are on display. Admission is free. The Corbitt Company started in the buggy business in 1899, and by 1907 was making crude high

wheeler automobiles. While they gradually became more sophisticated, R. J. Corbitt found it hard to compete with the large Northern firms, and started to produce trucks. These conventional assembled trucks were quite successful in the South and gradually gained acceptance in other parts of the country. Exports were important to Corbitt in the 1920s as they advertised sales in over 20 foreign countries. Corbitt gained government contracts in the 1930s and was favored by many large Eastern freight haul-

ers on the eve of WWII. The most productive peacetime year in the firm’s history was 1946, when it delivered over 600 units. Many configurations of trucks were offered, but 4 x 2 conventional tractors with Continental gas or Cummins diesels made up the bulk of sales. R. J. Corbitt retired in 1952 and shortly thereafter, the Corbitt Company was sold to the United Industrial Syndicate of New York, and liquidated. A comeback was attempted in the late 1950s, but failed, and the proud Corbitt name was gone.

East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame: a history By Jim Hill Special to the Dispatch

It is hardly a secret that the sport of drag racing had its earliest roots in California. Sources peg the year at about 1938 or 1939, perhaps even earlier. But just as the new shoots began to reach skyward, the dark clouds of war postponed such frivolities as the hot rodders found themselves in uniform, off to fight for their country’s survival. It was during that time of war that these same young men acquired new knowledge and skills that they would utilize for the design and building of automobiles. They returned with their skills vastly improved in ways to make engines roar and chassis handle the power produced. In the process, they met other military servicemen with an equal thirst for the thrill of speed in a machine built, maintained and driven with their own hands. It was from this that a nationwide, coast-to-coast hot rodding culture was spawned. Why then, did the hot

rodding sport, and ultimately drag racing, become so identified with California, when there was as much activity happening back East? The answer lies in the media coverage of the sport. Perhaps even more pointedly, “the media” pretty much consisted of one Robert E. Petersen and his fledgling Trend Publishing Company. Hot Rod Magazine, first published in 1948 and edited in the Los Angeles area, established California as the place where hot rodding, and soon drag racing, was “happening.” From the outset, Petersen’s realm of editorial coverage focused on Southern California, and this quickly, if unintentionally, led his readers to assume that hot rodding was indeed a California invention. Since then, hot rodding and drag racing have blossomed to become far more than a mere weekend diversion and a hobby for restless young men. In the half century since it’s beginning — on both the West and East coasts — hot rodding and drag racing have become a major motorsports

activity and have spawned an industry that now boasts a more than $1 billion dollar contribution to the economy. All well and good, except that there remained, until a scant five years ago, very little recognition for the contributions to this sport and industry made by those from “The Right Coast.” Perhaps the only exception to this is the outstanding Museum of Drag Racing, founded and operated by drag racing legend Don Garlits, and his national Drag Racing Hall of Fame, which chooses its annual inductees from candidates whose careers occurred on both east and west coasts. In 2002, Nancy Wilson, executive director of the Vance County Department of Tourism, gathered a small yet determined group of Easternbased drag racers, media types, and fans. The group formed the East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame, with the annual induction ceremony held in Henderson. Wilson and her colleagues created the entire East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame

weekend. Held each year in mid-October, this event has grown to become one of the Southeast’s largest car shows. The show part of the weekend literally closes down the main street of Henderson, forming a pedestrian mall that showcases hundreds of rods, muscle cars, antique vehicles and race cars for a crowd of 20,000 plus spectators. Each year’s list of honored inductees gather on Friday evening at three different Henderson motels to enjoy cocktails and re-establish old friendships and racing rivalries from days past. A cruise-in that same night gives the car show participants the opportunity to show off their cars and return to the hallowed cruising scene of the 1950s and 60s. On Sunday, at the VanceGranville Civic Center, the inductees are gathered for recognition and formal entrance into immortality within the East Coast based drag racing community. There, old photographs, stories and memories are shared for those on hand as well as those to be honored posthumously.

Racing pioneer and innovator Mickey Thompson to receive 2009 Wally Parks Motorsports Statesman Of The Year Award The late Mickey Thompson, a backyard hot rodder who dreamed big and achieved even bigger, has been selected to receive the Wally Parks Motorsports Statesman Award during the East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame ceremonies this weekend in Henderson. “Few individuals in any form of motorsports accomplished as much as did Mickey Thompson,” said Nancy Wilson, executive director of both the East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame and the Vance County Tourism Department. Thompson began his career as a teenaged, backyard hot rodder, and in his lifetime

became a world class racing driver, engineer, promoter and entrepreneur whose life and activities touched nearly every facet of motorsports. His contributions to drag racing include the design and creation of the first slingshot dragster, aluminum hemicylinder heads for Pontiac and Ford engines, a revolutionary redesign of the funny car chassis, “zoomie” exhaust headers for funny cars, and drag racing’s first monocoque, funny car chassis. He set hundreds of land speed records in dozens of different vehicles and was the first American to top 400 mph. He established an official one-way land speed

record, created the concept of indoor and outdoor stadium off-road racing, designed the first low-profile, “wide-oval” tires for Indy racing, founded a major racing products company, and was responsible for achievements in all forms of motorsports. He also founded, managed and promoted the legendary Lions Drag Strip, in Long Beach, Calif. “Mickey Thompson truly was the ‘Renaissance Man’ of motorsports,” said Wilson. Thompson’s son, Danny Thompson, and other family members will accept the award in his honor on Sunday during the East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame induction and awards ceremony at the

Vance-Granville Community College Civic Center. The ceremony begins at 12:30 p.m. and is open to the public at no charge. Wally Parks, for whom the award is named, was the founder of the National Hot Rod Association and a primary force in the creation of the National Hot Rod Association/Wally Parks Motorsports Museum, in Pomona, Calif. Parks and Thompson have been internationally recognized for their efforts at taking drag racing off the streets, organizing it, implementing safety rules and moving it into becoming a professional motorsports activity now contested around the world.

Orange too much for Webb, 35-9 From STAFF REPORTS

The Orange rushing attack behind Drevis Torain proved too much for J.F. Webb Friday in a 35-9 loss for the Warriors. Torain had two touchdowns, and tallied 137 yards on 18 carries. The Warriors couldn’t find the end zone until the fourth quarter, when quarterback Joel Adcock scrambled in from the 4. Adcock was 9-of-26 passing for 112 yards, and rushed for 30 yards on 15 carries. Akeem Daniel totaled 74 yards on 20 carries for Webb. After Orange took a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, D.L. Howard got Webb on the board with a 23-yard field goal. The Panthers took a 21-3 lead into the half. Orange improves to 5-3 and 2-0 in Carolina 3A Conference play. Webb (3-5, 1-1) hosts Chapel Hill next Friday on homecoming night. The Herald-Sun contributed to this report.

Warriors have their way with Rockets, 9-0

Raiders fall short of Crusaders Despite a solid performance from their rushing game, the Raiders of Southern Vance came up short against Cardinal Gibbons in Raleigh Friday night, 28-13. The tough Crusaders squad currently sits atop the Carolina 3A Conference with a record of 7-1. Their lone loss is to Louisburg. The Raiders took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, but went into the half trailing 21-13. The Crusader defense clamped down in the second half and kept Southern off the board. Senior quarterback James Harris and running back Nunu Henderson led the ground game. Henderson totaled about 100 yards rushing. Raider coach Mark Perry said his team needs to work on cutting down on the penalties, which cost them on a couple of good drives in the game. The Raiders (3-5, 0-2 Carolina 3A) host Orange next Friday.

OXFORD — J.F. Webb had a dynamic offensive performance in a 9-0 rout of Person Friday night. The Warriors were in control the entire night, peppering the Rockets goalkeeper with shots and limiting Person to just two shots on goal. “I think we’re kind of still feeding off our past two or three games where we’re starting to play much better, and I think that we showed here tonight we’re still kind of

feeding off that past momentum,” said Webb coach Allie Urbanski. Senior Toby Bellisimo set the tone early by scoring in the first 1:20 of the match — the first of four goals for him on the night. “He really got some great shots off,” said Urbanski. The Warrior attack was relentless from the opening whistle. Leland Yancey fired a pretty arc over the goalkeeper’s head in minute 14, and Andrew Pruitt put it through three minutes later to make it 3-0.

Midway through the first half, Bellisimo accepted a nice pass, drove downfield in front of the goal and lightly pushed it past the keeper to make it 4-0. Jose Pelcastre scored the fifth goal on a Bellisimo assist with 3:45 left in the half. Yancey scored his second of the night in the 51st minute. His first shot was deflected by the goalkeeper, but Yancey got his own rebound to put it away and make it 6-0. After Bellisimo collected Please see WARRIORS, page 3B

first by taking advantage of a throwing error by left fielder Juan Rivera and a popup by Hideki Matsui that fell between third baseman Chone Figgins and shortstop Erick Aybar, who each thought the other would snag it. Angels starter John Lackey crouched and screamed in anger. The night didn’t get much better for Los Angeles. After Kendry Morales’ fourth-inning single cut the deficit in half, Matsui doubled in a run in the fifth to make it 3-1. Lackey’s

BOSTON — Tom O’Brien and Frank Spaziani were assistant coaches at Navy in 1975 when they made each other a promise. “It was probably one of those dumb things we did when it was 1975 where I said, ’If I ever get a head coaching job, I’ll hire you,”’ O’Brien said with a grin this week as he Spaziani prepared to bring North Carolina State (3-3, 0-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) back to Boston College to face his former assistant. “He held (me) to what I said.” O’Brien wound up bringing Spaziani in when he took over at Boston College in 1997, and the two worked together until O’Brien left to coach the O’Brien Wolfpack in 2006. Spaziani took over as interim coach for a 2006 bowl game, which BC won, and then stuck around when Jeff Jagodzinski was hired as O’Brien’s replacement. When Jagodzinski was fired for pursuing an NFL job last winter, Spaziani finally got his chance to be a head coach. And O’Brien wasn’t surprised. “I wanted him on my staff,” O’Brien said. “I knew he was a great coach. I knew he was a good guy and a great friend — somebody you can trust.” Boston College went 75-45 in 10 years under O’Brien, reaching eight consecutive bowl games and winning six in a row while recruiting a steady stream of NFL first-rounders such as Matt Ryan, Mathias Kiwanuka and B.J. Raji. Jagodzinski took BC to the ACC title game in consecutive years, though the Eagles lost both times. This year’s Eagles (4-2, 2-2) are in flux at quarterback, two years after Ryan left, struggling under redshirt freshman Justin Tuggle and 25-year-old freshman Dave Shinskie. They have not won on the road, including last week’s 48-14 loss at now-No. 4 Virginia Tech. And Spaziani will have to try to turn things

Tigers turn the tables

Chapel Hill scores 21 in second half to beat turnover-prone Vikings By KELLEN HOLTZMAN Dispatch Staff Writer

Northern Vance put itself in position to win late in the fourth quarter against Chapel Hill — but the turnover bug continued to bite the Vikings. Down 14-7 in the final minute, quarterback Jordan Branch connected with Marcus Hargrove for a reception across midfield on fourth down. But Hargrove fumbled on the play and Chapel Hill’s Russell Suitt scooped the ball up and ran it all the way back for a 55-yard score in the Tigers’ 21-7 win Friday to spoil Northern’s homecoming. “It’s just kind of how the ball has been bouncing for us. That’s just been our luck all year,” said Northern coach Cedric Crudup. “I think we had a good chance to go down there and score.” “He caught it, but he just made a mistake.”

Branch found Brandon Epps on a 40-yard pass play on the ensuing possession before he was again picked off to end the game. The Vikings (1-7, 0-2) led 7-0 at halftime, but Chapel Hill (3-5, 1-1) scored 21 unanswered points to earn its first conference vic-

tory. The two teams combined for just two completed passes for 8 yards in the first half. “If we don’t turn the football over, we’re a good football team,” said Crudup. “When we turn the Please see VIKINGS, page 3B

Sabathia, Yankees stop Angels cold By RONALD BLUM AP Baseball Writer

New York pitcher CC Sabathia reacts after Los Angeles’ Mike Napoli struck out swinging in Game 1 of the American League Championship series Friday.

NEW YORK — CC Sabathia and the New York Yankees stopped the Los Angeles Angels cold in the AL championship series opener. On a blustery night more suited to bobsleds than baseballs, Sabathia pitched eight superb innings of four-hit ball to win his second straight postseason start and New York took advantage of a rare sloppy night by Los Angeles in a 4-1 victory Friday. The Angels looked like chilled Californians wither-

ing in the unseasonable wintry weather, making three errors that led to two unearned runs and allowing an infield popup to drop untouched for an RBI single. Even Torii Hunter, an eight-time Gold Glove center fielder, allowed a single to roll past him. It was 45 degrees at gametime, and a 17 mph wind made it feel worse. Because of the cold conditions, the traditional foul line introductions before the first game were scrapped. Back in the ALCS for the first time in five years, New York built a 2-0 lead in the

College Hoops Defending champion Heels kick off season CHAPEL HILL (AP) — North Carolina lost a lot of talent from the team that won last season’s national championship, from a four-year star who was the program’s all-time leading scorer and rebounder to a couple of underclassmen-turned-NBA rookies. Then again, that might just mean more playing time for John Henson. The gangly, 6-foot-10 freshman scored 10 points in the intrasquad scrimmage during the Tar Heels’ annual “Late Night with Roy” event to kick off the season Friday night, a glimpse of the talent that could make him a huge matchup problem for teams already grappling with North Carolina’s talented front line. “That size and athleticism is just one of those things that’s tough to describe,” fifth-year senior Marcus Ginyard said of Henson. “He’s a guy who can do some interesting things out there. We’ve got to let it play out and see what he does, but there’s no question he can be a big help to the team.”

RALEIGH — Sidney Lowe made his reputation as the starting point guard on North Carolina State’s surprise national championship squad more than a quarter-century ago. Yet as he enters his fourth year as the Wolfpack’s coach, Lowe is still trying to find a guy to play his old position. The Wolfpack enters

preseason practice with the same point guards — Javi Gonzalez, Farnold Degand and Julius Mays — who spent last season in a revolving-door rotation that has yet to gain traction in the Atlantic Coast Conference. It’s been the most consistently glaring characteristic of Lowe’s brief tenure in Raleigh, and could ultimately be his undoing if the program doesn’t soon begin to show

some progress after failing to make the NCAA tournament since his arrival. Lowe, at the team’s preseason media day Friday, said he’s confident that the trio will get the job done. He said one — he wouldn’t say who — has an early lead in the race to become the starter, but that it’s too early to know for sure. “I think the main thing (we need) is some direction is some direction,”

Lowe said. “Direction and don’t turn it over. I don’t look for our point guards to try to lead us in scoring. Can that happen? Absolutely because there’s going to be shots available for them. And we’d like for them to be able to knock them down, which I think they can. But it’s more the control, having control of the game and having control of the team and the players out there on the floor.”

Dodgers rally to beat Phils, tie series By BETH HARRIS AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES — A grounder off a fielder’s glove. A bunt that slipped by two players. The Los Angeles Dodgers’ latest postseason rally began in the weirdest, wackiest way. Another throwing error by Chase Utley, a pinch-hit single and two walks also were part of the Dodgers’ crazy eighth inning that produced a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday, tying the NL championship series at one game each. The Dodgers took the lead after Phillies pulled Pedro Martinez, who allowed just two hits over seven shutout innings. Andre Ethier drew a basesloaded, two-out walk from rookie J.A. Happ, capping the Dodgers’ third comeback win of this postseason. “We’ve been doing it all year, it seems like. We’re relentless. We never give up,” catcher Russell Martin said. “We go out there and compete, play through 27 outs, and whatever happens, happens. But we never keep our heads down.” Game 3 in the best-ofseven series is Sunday in Philadelphia. “We only need three more games to do something special,” said Dodgers slugger Manny Ramirez, who went 0 for 4 with a strikeout. Vicente Padilla pitched brilliantly for 7 1-3 innings and the Los Angeles bullpen did the rest. Hong-Chih Kuo threw three pitches, getting two outs and the win. Jonathan Broxton worked a perfect ninth for the save.

Philadelphia reliever Chan Ho Park can't get to the bunt hit by Los Angeles’ Ronnie Belliard during the eighth inning of Game 2 of the National League Championship baseball series Friday. Philadelphia wound up using five relievers in the eighth, but not Brad Lidge, who didn’t get into the game. “I don’t think it will have any lasting effect on us,” Martinez said. “We didn’t execute. We made errors. If we hit like we normally do, I don’t think the game’s going to end up 2-1.” For the second time in this year’s playoffs, a visiting team let a late lead slip away at Dodger Stadium. Last week, St. Louis left fielder Matt Holliday’s twoout error on an easy fly ball in the ninth doomed the Cardinals, who got swept by the Dodgers. They perfected their lateinning magic during the regular season by winning 12 games in walk-offs, third best in the majors. Martinez and Padilla dueled through seven innings in a matchup of castoffs. Padilla allowed one run

and four hits, struck out six and walked one. He exited to a standing ovation from the sellout crowd of 56,000, tipping his cap as he walked off. “It’s my first time playing in front of a big crowd like this in a game that’s more important than I’ve ever pitched in my life, and I was very emotional,” Padilla said through a translator. An injury-plagued Martinez was let go by the Mets last season, while Padilla got dumped by Texas in August. He signed with the Dodgers two days later, excelled in their drive to a second consecutive NL West title and pitched well against St. Louis in the first round. “I was very happy with the way I pitched,” Padilla said. “Although we were losing, I knew that the guys were going to come back, and I think I’m more happy now because the team won.”

Ethier led the Dodgers with a career-high 31 homers in the regular season, but he resisted his instincts with the bases loaded and a full count. “Of course, you want to get the job done by swinging, but at the same time, don’t be too aggressive and don’t get yourself out,” he said. “Donnie (hitting coach Mattingly) has been preaching to me a lot that once the playoffs start, be patient, get your pitch to hit and see it. Donnie’s voice was in my head the whole time, and I guess it came in handy there.” The Dodgers were down 1-0 when Casey Blake opened the eighth with a single off the outstretched glove of third baseman Pedro Feliz. Ronnie Belliard’s bunt single got past Chan Ho Park and first baseman Ryan Howard.

Vanguard volleyball in home stretch of first season By ANDREW BEAL Special to the Dispatch

The Vance-Granville Community College women’s volleyball team has a 2-11 record as its first season nears a conclusion. The Vanguards, coached by Ellis Crews of Oxford, lost four recent matches, each one three sets to none: Surry Community

College on Oct. 6, Guilford Technical Community College on Oct. 9 (at home), Brunswick Community College on Oct. 11 and Johnston Community College on Oct. 14 (at home). After several more matches on the road, the Vanguards will try to finish strong at home, with the final match of the season on Friday, Oct. 23

at 5 p.m. versus Louisburg College. Because of Louisburg’s status as a club team, the match does not count toward VGCC’s official NJCAA Region X record, but as a local rivalry, it will have significance for the players and fans. The Vanguards will also attempt to avenge a close loss to the Louisburg squad last

month, which went all five sets. All VGCC home matches, held at Aycock Recreation Complex in Henderson, are free and open to the public. On Nov. 6-7, the VGCC women will participate in their first regional tournament, which will be held at Lenoir Community College in Kinston.

Vance-Granville announces b-ball schedule By ANDREW BEAL Special to the Dispatch

The Vance-Granville Community College men’s basketball team is scheduled to play 26 games, including 12 home games, in the college’s second season as a member of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). First, the team will participate in several scrimmages: the Louisburg College Jamboree at Kerr-Vance Academy on Sunday, the second “Green & Gold Game” at home on Oct. 21, and a meeting with the Crimson Tide of Charis Prep in Wilson on Oct. 30. The Vanguards will open the regular season on the road, at Central Carolina Community College on Nov. 1. Next, the Vanguards will play their

home opener at Southern Vance High School on Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. versus Southside Virginia Community College (which was also VGCC’s first home opponent last season). All other home games, which are free and open to the public, will be played at Aycock Recreation Complex in Henderson. The regular season will continue through February. The conference schedule is again highlighted by area rival Louisburg College. VGCC will first take on the Hurricanes at home on Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. Louisburg will host VGCC on Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. Last year, the Vanguards went 0-2 versus the Hurricanes.

Lewis leads Pitt past Rutgers, 24-17 By TOM CANAVAN AP Sports Writer

Pittsburgh’s Dorin Dickerson tries to break the tackle of Rutgers linebacker Antonio Lowery during the second quarter of Friday’s game in Piscataway, N.J.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Freshman Dion Lewis ran for 180 yards and two touchdowns and Pittsburgh ended four years of frustration against Rutgers with a 24-17 victory on Friday night. Lewis scored on runs of 1 and 58 yards and Bill Stull threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Dorin Dickerson as the Panthers (6-1, 3-0 Big East) beat Rutgers (4-2, 0-2) for the first time since 2004. Dan Hutchins added a

career-long 45-yard field goal and the Panthers held Rutgers to a season-low 38 yards rushing in getting off to their best conference start since 2003. Pittsburgh still has No. 8 Cincinnati, West Virginia and South Florida left on its league schedule. Mohamed Sanu scored on an 11-yard run, Tom Savage threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Tim Brown and San San Te kicked a 23-yard field goal for the Scarlet Knights, who had a four-game winning streak snapped.

cepted Branch at the 35 and returned it to midfield. Nine of Chapel Hill’s 10 plays on the drive came on the ground. “We’re not making enough progress from week to week,” Crudup said. “Defensively, we can’t stop the run. We’re putting nine in the box and they’re still running on us. That just comes down to heart

and toughness.” Northern opened the scoring with 8:34 to play in the second quarter when running back Eric Jeffries burst past the Chapel Hill defense and down the right side for a 54-yard touchdown. Jeffries ran for 77 yards on 11 carries. “He is the go-to-guy. We have to get him the ball more,” said Crudup. “He’s having to play offense and defense, so he’s getting a little gassed. We just haven’t been able to get him the ball as much as we’d like to.” Viking linebacker Jonathon Chavis set up the one-play drive with a fumble recovery on a Watson fumble. Chavis recovered another Chapel Hill fumble on its next possession, but this time, Northern couldn’t capitalize. Branch finished the night completing four of 19 passes for 73 yards. Northern will travel to Cardinal Gibbons next week. The Crusaders (7-1, 2-0) are coming off a 28-13 win over Southern Vance. “We don’t have anything to lose,” Crudup said. “I want the kids to play loose and have fun. If we do that and don’t turn the ball over, I think we’ll be okay. I don’t think there’s any team in the league we can’t beat if we take care of business.”

rest of their games; the only ranked team on their schedule is No. 25 Notre Dame, which BC has beaten six times in a row. And Clemson would have to lose at least once in the conference; the Tigers play in Miami on Oct. 24. “This is a championship football game, there’s no doubt about that,” said McLaughlin, one of those who spoke at the meeting. “It doesn’t get any bigger than this as far as at division standings.” And that’s why he isn’t all wrapped up in the coaching matchup. “This is a huge football game for us — playing an Atlantic Division opponent,” he said. “You’re not putting a name on it, playing coach O’Brien and the Wolfpack. It’s good to

see the familiar faces. But when it comes down to it, you’re going out to win a huge game.” Safety Wes Davis doesn’t expect the pressure of coaching against his mentor to affect Spaziani. “It’s just human nature to have some sort of added motivation,” he said. “But he’s handled it the right way this far. He was here last year when we played against them, and I haven’t seen anything different.” Davis, who was a freshman when O’Brien left, doesn’t expect any tearful reunions with his old coach. “For me, it’s N.C. State,” he said. “Coach O’Brien — I hope he remembers my name.”

Watson had a huge night for Chapel Hill, racking up 177 yards on 17 carries. The drive began when Carlos Hill inter-

VIKINGS, from page 1B ball over, we’re a bad football team. In the second half, we were a bad football team.” Northern came up with a big third down stop with 2:55 left to play when Jonathon Adcock tackled Tiger quarterback Stephen Wistner for a loss to force fourth and 27. The Vikings kept rolling with a fourth and 8 conversion when Branch found Epps for a nine-yard play, setting up the final series of downs before the interception. Chapel Hill went ahead 14-7 in the waning moments of the third quarter when Wistner found Eddie Burgard for a 70-yard scoring strike. Burgard caught the pass in stride across the middle and bounced to the right, untouched down the sideline for the score. Wistner completed four of seven passes for 93 yards and one touchdown. Northern had a golden opportunity to get back in the game after the Tigers went ahead when Crudup called in a gutsy, fake punt call on fourth and 13 from the Chapel Hill 43. Punter Joseph Faulkner rolled to his left and found Epps for what would have been a first down — ­ if the Vikings hadn’t had an ineligible receiver downfield. “I was calling the fake — but the guy that calls it out didn’t hear me,” said

CONCORD — Kyle Busch is feeling better, thanks. The NASCACR star shrugged off walking pneumonia to dominate the Nationwide Series race at Lowe’s Motor Speedway on Friday night, picking up his seventh victory of the year to extend his points lead over Carl Edwards with four races remaining. Mike Bliss was second, followed by Dave Blaney and Brian Vickers. Edwards finished fifth to drop 195 points behind Busch. Busch led 137 laps at the 1.5-mile oval, and celebrated his first Nationwide win in nearly three months by doing a couple of burnouts after grabbing the checkered flag. The win was his 28th career Nationwide victory, but his first since Gateway in mid-July, an eternity for one of NASCAR’s top drivers. It was his fifth career win at LMS. “This is my house, at least on the Nationwide side,” Busch said. The workaholic Busch felt so poorly last weekend he actually hopped out of his No. 18 Toyota early in both the Nationwide and

Cup races at Auto Club Speedway. Teammate Denny Hamlin filled in during the Nationwide race before crashing his way to a 31st-place finish, allowing Edwards to gain valuable ground in the points race. Busch felt better this week, even after being diagnosed with walking pneumonia. He qualified fifth and wasted little time getting to the front, adding to his record lap-leading total. He has led over 2,400 laps this season and barring any catastrophe over the next month will wrap up his first Nationwide title. Joey Logano, hoping to become just the fifth driver to win three straight Nationwide races, was collected in a sevencar pile up on lap 70. He pitted eight times during the ensuing caution while his crew tried to bang out the dents. He flirted with getting back into the top 10, but was black-flagged late in the race when a part of his rear fender came dangerously close to breaking off. The crash also took out Cup star Matt Kenseth, who led 21 laps early before getting caught in the second wave of the incident.

BC-NC STATE, from page 1B around against his mentor. “It’s easier to just compete against someone who you’re not quite sure you know. When you start to know somebody, it takes on more of a personal aspect to it,” Spaziani said. “The joy of winning and losing, it takes on a little different meaning when it is your friends.” In the wake of last week’s loss, the BC captains called a team meeting to get everyone together before playing N.C. State. The message: BC could still earn a trip to the ACC championship game without a major upset. “The main thing was, ’Keep your eyes on the prize. An ACC championship is still attain-

able,”’ defensive end Alex Albright said. “A lot of people felt really inspired, jumping up and down.” Linebacker Mike McLaughlin said the captains also called a team meeting last year after a loss to Clemson. They hesitated to do it again, but they saw something after the loss in Blacksburg that concerned them. “It took the life out of the guys a little bit. I don’t like to see that,” McLaughlin said. “Anytime you go down to a place like that and get beat like that, you’ve got to regroup. A good team moves on, that’s kind of what the message was.” For BC to reach the ACC title game for a third straight year, the Eagles would have to win the

YANKEES, from page 1B throwing error on a pickoff attempt allowed Melky Cabrera to take second in the sixth, and Derek Jeter followed with a runscoring single that got by Hunter. Sabathia, 2-0 with a 1.13 ERA in his first postseason with the Yankees, gave up a double and three singles, struck out seven and walked one, going to three-balls count just twice. The crowd repeated chanted the initials of Sabathia, who may start three times in the bestof-seven series goes the full length. The big lefty showed his heightened emotion with a couple of fist pumps. Mariano Rivera pitched a hitless ninth for his re-

cord 36th postseason save, his second this year. A.J. Burnett is slated to start Game 2 for the Yankees against Joe Saunders, who hasn’t pitched since Oct. 4. Rain is in the forecast for Saturday, and a postponement is possible. There was another disputed call, with first base umpire Laz Diaz ruling Hunter out on his sixthinning bunt. Angels manager Mike Scioscia argued that first baseman Mark Teixeira’s foot came off the bag when he stretched for Sabathia’s throw — replays were inconclusive. While players took batting practice in ski caps, sweat shirts and gloves, the giant video board in

center showed the NLCS game in Los Angeles, where the temperature was in the 90s and fans wore short sleeves. Nick Swisher, Johnny Damon and Teixeira wore special caps with Elmer Fudd-style ear flaps — Yankees equipment manager Rob Cucuzza said the team had stocked them all season but hadn’t used them before. Second baseman Robinson Cano wore a ski mask. Aybar appeared to be wearing a sweat shirt with a red hood — perhaps hindering his ability to hear on the popup that fell. In the stands, actress Kate Hudson bundled in a purple hood. Another fan in the sellout crowd of

49,688 wore a white Santa beard. Still, the Texas-born Lackey was one of the few players in short sleeves. After pitching 7 1-3 shutout innings in the opener of the Angels’ first-round sweep of Boston, he gave up four runs — two earned — and nine hits in 5 2-3 innings. New York won a World Series title in its first season at the original Yankee Stadium in 1923 and went on to play exactly 100 Series games there. Eliminated by the Angels in the division series in 2002 and 2005, the Yankees hope to get past their nemesis and reach the Series in the first season at their new $1.5 billion ballpark.

WARRIORS, from page 1B his hat trick at minute 57, Person had their first shot of the night saved by Geoffrey Cash at minute 65. The final Bellisimo goal came with 11:10 to go, and Stephen Hill added the punctuation mark less than two minutes later with his goal that made it 9-0. “Finishing is something we’ve been working on. I think in the past games, we really haven’t had a chance to get a lot of shots off, we’ve executed on the few that we had,” Urbanski said. “But tonight was good because I think it’s going to boost our confidence a little bit, especially going into next week when we have a really tough schedule.” Friday was a warm-

up for Webb. The Warriors have crucial games against Carolina 3A Conference foes Orange, Chapel Hill and Northern Vance next week. Former Warrior coach Scott Campbell was in attendance Friday night, and joined his former team on the sidelines. Last year’s Daily Dispatch All-Area Soccer Coach of the Year departed Oxford and moved to Alabama earlier this year. “I think it was really nice having him come back,” Urbanski said of Campbell. “I know the guys kind of feed off his energy. He is just so energetic and passionate about this game.” Contact the writer at

Longhorns looking for revenge in Red River Rivalry By JIM VERTUNO AP Sports Writer

DALLAS — First came the flyovers. Then the Big 12 tiebreaker that helped Oklahoma win the league title. A few months later in Austin there was — briefly — an asterisk. The annual Texas-Oklahoma rivalry at the Cotton Bowl is always a grudge match. Saturday’s game between the No. 3 Longhorns and No. 20 Sooners also carries national title implications and promises to be extra spicy after what happened last season. Forgot? Here’s a rundown. Texas beat Oklahoma to vault to No. 1. A few weeks later, the Sooners, Longhorns and Texas Tech were in a three-way tie in the Big 12 South. The border battle then became the banner war. A plane circled the stadium at Oklahoma’s regular-season finale with a banner: “Texas 45 OU 35 — Settled on a Neutral Field.” A few days later, a flying message over Austin teased Texas with “Hey Mack, quit whining. U knew the rules.”

Texas quarterback Colt McCoy is shown before his team’s 3814 win in last Saturday’s game against Colorado. Texas, ranked No.3, is set to play No. 20 Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl today. The Big 12 tiebreaker went to Oklahoma. The Sooners went to the BCS title game in Florida and Texas got bumped to the Fiesta Bowl. Still seething months later, the Texas staff claimed the 2008 Big 12 title on the champions wall in the team complex, putting an asterisk next to the year before coach Mack Brown ordered it taken down. So now Texas tries to

tries to get revenge against a team it beat last season. “I’m sure they’re a little bitter,” Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford said. “We’re a little bitter that they beat us last year. I’m sure both sides are going to be pretty amped up come Saturday.” The Longhorns (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) insist they’ve put the past in the past and that Saturday is about trying to win league and national titles in 2009, not

replaying 2008. “OU had nothing to do with keeping us out,” Brown said. “We lost at Tech. It was on us. We should have been mad at ourselves for letting it get out of the control of our own destiny.” The Longhorns opened this season at No. 2 eyeing three goals: the Big 12 and national titles and a Heisman Trophy for quarterback Colt McCoy. The first two are still in reach if they keep winning. McCoy’s trophy campaign needs a boost. McCoy, runner-up to Bradford for the Heisman last season, has 1,410 yards passing with 10 touchdowns but also has six interceptions. Some early missteps led to slow starts and the Longhorns managed just two offensive touchdowns in the first half of three games this season. McCoy has played some of his best games against the Sooners the last three years and knows another big game could vault into the favorite’s role again. “These four games I’ve played in have been some of the most fun. They’re Bra.Keselowski, 4,732; 4. J.Leffler, 4,019; 5. J.Allgaier, 3,632; 6. S.Wallace, 3,523; 7. M.Bliss, 3,514; 8. J.Keller, 3,495; 9. B.Gaughan, 3,403; 10. M.McDowell, 3,185. NASCAR Driver Rating Formula A maximum of 150 points can be attained in a race. The formula combines the following categories: Wins, Finishes, Top-15 Finishes, Average Running Position While on Lead Lap, Average Speed Under Green, Fastest Lap, Led Most Laps, Lead-Lap Finish.

the ones that you remember because of the tradition, the rivalry and what it means to your conference and your season,” McCoy said. Oklahoma (3-2, 1-0) and Bradford were in the mix for the same goals when the season started. Then Bradford hurt his throwing shoulder in the first game and missed the next three. Bradford returned last week in a win over Baylor and looked good. The losses may have ended their national title hopes, but with Bradford back, the Sooners are very much in the hunt for a seventh Big 12 title in 10 years. “How can he not make a difference? Last year he was the best player in college football,” Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said. “In the end, we’re not talking about just any old guy. He’s been pretty special over and over.” For McCoy and Bradford, it will be the last time the friends face each other on the field in college. McCoy is a senior and Bradford, a junior, will likely leave for the NFL after this season.

Bradford made it back in time to play Texas. “I thought it would be great for college football if it was Sam and Colt again,” Brown said. Saturday will be the 104th meeting between the schools in a rivalry that dates to 1900. Since 1912, they have met in Dallas, about halfway between each campus. The Cotton Bowl sits amid the rides, food and livestock shows at the State Fair of Texas, giving the game a carnival atmosphere unrivaled in college football. The game kicks off at 11 a.m. local time but fans still come early to taunt each other while chewing on turkey legs, corny dogs and trying to stomach the latest fried concoction. This year, it’s fried butter, a scoop of pure butter frozen and covered with dough. “It was crazy,” said Texas safety Earl Thomas, who was a freshman last season and got his first taste of the rivalry. “You would think it’s like 5 p.m., but it’s 11 in the morning,” Thomas said. “Everybody’s out there being rowdy.” Carolina Tampa Bay

Facing up to the cold, hard truth Surely the scale was wrong, I thought to myself. Being a bit obsessive about my weight, I regularly step on the scale to verify that no unwanted pounds have recently “snuck up” on me. But, alas, the cold hard truth was blatantly staring at me in the face. In the course of a month I had managed to gain a few pounds. Determined to demonstrate Rev. Seth the falsehood of the scale, Miller I looked for Sulphur Springs my 30-pound Baptist Church weight to check the scale’s accuracy. The cold truth did not budge. The scaled had correctly assessed that the weight was indeed 30 pounds. Impossible, I screamed in my head. So I did the only thing I thought would help remedy the situation. I reached down and turned the “knobby” thing so that the scale would say what I wanted it to say. I wonder how many folks approach the Bible with the same mentality? Do we have the right to change the divine message of Scripture so that it says what we want it to say? As Christians, we must respond in the negative. We must heed the words of Jesus when He said, “Therefore, whoever hears these sayings of mine and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of mine and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was the fall.” (Matt. 7:24-27). The message is clear in the words of our savior. Those who are genuinely following the lordship of Jesus will in fact heed his words and carry them out in their lives. Sadly, we live in an age in which people allow the culture to shape their understanding of the Bible rather than allowing the Bible to shape their understanding of the culture. But no matter how much we wish to change the truth for the sake of our convenience, truth is truth. The fact of the matter is that our twisting of scripture does not change its truth anymore than turning the “knobby” thing on the scale changed my weight. If I weighed 205 pounds (that’s right!), then I do not weigh 185 pounds, no matter how much twisting I do. So what do we do when faced with a passage of scripture that we do not like? Well, the same thing you do when the scale gives you the sad truth — you adjust! You discipline yourself to reach the standard that is to be reached! So when the Bible reveals a moral flaw in you, do not just throw it out like an unforgiving scale! Make the adjustments necessary to be pleasing to God.

Loyola law student Mona Elgindy poses in the law library. In her paper, one of the few studies on religious clothing laws in recent years, Elgindy noted she could find no evidence that the laws statutes have ever been invoked by students. Rather, the recent legal history has been created by teachers trying to keep their jobs after administrators confronted them.

Three states still have bans on religious clothing for teachers By WILLIAM McCALL Associated Press Writer

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A law backed by the Ku Klux Klan nearly a century ago to keep Catholics out of public schools is still on the books in Oregon, one of the last states in the nation to prohibit teachers from wearing religious clothing in classrooms. Both Pennsylvania and Nebraska have similar laws, which try to balance the constitutional conflict between protecting students from the establishment of religion in schools and the rights of teachers to express their beliefs through their dress. Oregon’s law, originally aimed at priest collars and nun habits, survived a legal challenge in the 1980s by a Sikh convert who wanted to wear her turban in the classroom and was recently upheld by the state’s Legislature. A Muslim teacher in Pennsylvania lost a similar challenge in 1991 to that state’s even older law for the right to wear a head scarf at school. So far, it has not posed any serious legal issues in Nebraska. That such a law still exists was a surprise for many Oregonians who learned about it when Gov. Ted Kulongoski signed the Oregon Workplace Religious Freedom Act in July, allowing workers to wear religious clothing on the job. But the law did not change the ban for teachers enacted in the 1920s, after that portion was opposed by the Oregon chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union on the grounds that impressionable children should not feel

indoctrinated by their teachers. The laws’ existence also surprised Mona Elgindy, a law student at Loyola University in Chicago who wrote a paper on the issue. She is a Muslim and a former teacher. “I kept doing research and research, and thought I must be finding something that’s overruling this, or repealing the law, and there was nothing,” Elgindy said. In her paper, one of the few studies on religious clothing laws in recent years, Elgindy noted she could find no evidence that the laws statutes have ever been invoked by students. Rather, the recent legal history has been created by teachers trying to keep their jobs after administrators confronted them. Court rulings in both Oregon and federal court in Pennsylvania rejected the claims by teachers and pointed out conflicts with the First Amendment: Teachers have a constitutional right to freedom of religion, but school districts must avoid supporting any religion. Michael Kaufman, one of Elgindy’s professors and an education law expert, said laws banning religious clothing used to be fairly common. But there has been a gradual shift away from them to protect teachers’ religious freedom as long as it does not disrupt the classroom. “It’s now sort of gone full circle,” Kaufman said. “The law now requires neutrality regarding religion, meaning the states or schools can neither favor nor disfavor religion.” The few remaining bans “are really suspect constitutionally now,” he said.

During her eight years as a teacher in the Chicago area, Elgindy says she never ran into a conflict over her style of dress and covering her hair. “It never was something that seemed to be in the way of my being a teacher,” she said, adding it was often the opposite reaction. “They said, ’Here’s somebody of a different background who can bring diversity to the staff.’ It was always seen as positive thing.” An example of a shift in court attitude may have been signaled when the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled unanimously in 1999 that Muslim police officers in Newark, N.J., must be allowed to wear beards. Tom Hutton, senior staff attorney for the National School Boards Association, said he did not know of any significant pending cases that might test the bans. “It’s really anybody’s guess, but my own personal view is it would be more of an uphill battle to defend a religious garb statute than attack it,” Hutton said. Oregon House Speaker Dave Hunt wanted to include teachers in the new workplace law.

Tabernacle United Methodist Church to celebrate 225th anniversary on Oct. 25 Tabernacle United Methodist Church on Rock Spring Church Road in Townsville will celebrate its 225th anniversary on Oct. 25 during homecoming services. In celebration of the event, Bishop Alfred Wesley Gwinn will preach at the 11 a.m. worship service and a dinner will be served following the service. A time of reflection and testimony will occur during a church-wide Sunday School session at 9:45 a.m., and pictures and memorabilia will be on display. Former members and former pastors are expected to attend. The public is invited to share in the festivities. The history of Tabernacle United Methodist Church is closely related to the story of the spread of Methodism in America. Records are scanty, but it appears that some of the early Methodist “circuit riders” from Maryland and Virginia stopped at “the tabernacle” on their way south after crossing the Roanoke River at Taylor’s Ferry. Some of these circuit riders stayed with Colonel Edmund O. Taylor near present day Townsville. In 1780, Francis Asbury rode a circuit in this area on one of his journeys south. Asbury recorded in his journal that he spent the night at Taylor’s home and rode six miles the next day to “the tabernacle,” where he preached to “about four hundred people rich and poor” on June 25, 1780. It’s not known how much time went by before Methodists in this area formed a society, but by 1784, Tabernacle Church was established as a congregation in the newly organized Methodist Episcopal Church in America. Tradition has it that the place of worship referred to in Asbury’s journal was a log lean-to building much like a “brush arbor” in construction, with sheds on either side. Just off an old Indian trail running from Taylor’s Ferry on the

Tabernacle United Methodist Church members worship in this building today, the third structure that has housed the congregation over the past 225 years. Roanoke River to Williamsboro, “the tabernacle” was located on the same site as the church’s present building. A deed to the church dating from 1848 records that “the tabernacle” has long been known in the Townsville area as a house of worship and that the land on which the church building was situated was given by Charles Hargrove. The building which the congregation currently uses for worship is its third. Church history does not record when “the tabernacle” was replaced by a second building, but that the second building was disassembled and erected across the road from the present building in 1888, at which time the church sanctuary was constructed. The second building then became known as “the hall” and was used for Sunday School for a time,

though it was owned by the Border Agriculture Club. In 1953, four Sunday School classrooms and two bathrooms were built at the rear of the church sanctuary. In 1957, a porch was added at the front of the building. Then in 1977, another building was built adjacent to the sanctuary, which houses the fellowship hall and Sunday School classrooms The sanctuary basically remained the same until 2002 when the windows were replaced with stained glass windows and a stained glass replica of “The Last Supper” was installed in the pulpit. The pews and light fixtures were replaced a short time later when some major renovations were done. The church’s current pastor is Rev. S. Mark Clark.

CLOTHING, from page 1C have changed. “It’s not an easy issue,” he said. Schools have been battlegrounds because “those who feel very strongly that their particular brand of religion is best feel the need to have their religion endorsed by public schools to attract more followers to their beliefs,” Fidanque said. The battle has not changed much since the 19th century when

Pennsylvania voters passed a law in 1895 aimed at preventing nuns from wearing religious clothing in schools, said Stuart Knade, attorney for the Pennsylvania School Boards Association. The effort to ensure religious neutrality in schools came from parents who had the strongest religious beliefs, “so there’s an interesting irony there,” Knade said.

Rajdeep Singh Jolly, legal director for the Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund, and Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, both say the laws are not only unconstitutional, but discriminatory because their enforcement now tends to fall on minorities. The Sikh group has asked the U.S. Justice Department to

investigate whether the Oregon law violates Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act, and received a letter this week saying the department would give it “careful consideration.” Jolly and Hooper say the best way to deal with any problem involving religion in classrooms is to discipline teachers if they try to proselytize students or advocate favoring a particular religion, not

for the way they dress. “I think it’s perfectly reasonable to expect that teachers will not talk about their religion in the classroom,” Jolly said. But when it comes to a Sikh turban or other clothing, he asked: “Why should I have to surrender something that is such an integral part of my life in order to pursue a career? It just doesn’t make sense.”

Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). Even though it may seem to you at times that you are moving in slow motion, at least you are moving. You’ll be surprised how it adds up. Remember what you were doing at this time last year? Well, you’ve come a long way. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You feel as if you have been blindfolded, spun around and asked to pin the tail on a donkey that might not even be there! An impossible situation, yes, but you’ve accomplished many impossible things in your lifetime. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Like a vegetarian who loves bacon, you have one or two personal idiosyncrasies that are inconsistent and endearing. Put the self-help books down for a while. You are right where you need to be. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have been considering a dietary change, and this is a good time to try it out. You can always go back, and in the meantime, you will learn something about yourself and probably discover a new kind of delicious, too. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Some days it rains, and some days the rain comes down sideways and splatters on your window like it’s mad at you. Your interpretation of dripping water — and everything else — makes all the difference in how you experience it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A health issue that’s been concerning you sees a resolution of sorts. Some things have once-and-for-all cures, and some require a little change in lifestyle. The important thing is that

you are basically healthy and loved. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A stickler for detail, your ability to pick out just the right color, line or song is why you are good at what you do. A rivalry between you and a colleague will only goad you on to better work. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Do you still have the same favorite color you did as a kid? Or do you have a favorite color at all? Silly as it might seem, even a little personal reflection such as this can bring a sudden wash of memory and a new self-appreciation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Sure, there’s a big contrast between your fantasy and the reality you’re experiencing. But don’t let it get you down. Take this as a signal that you’re finally dreaming big enough. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You get along so well with someone who doesn’t have such an easy time being nice to others. You focus on what they do well and try to ignore the rest. It’s not so easy, but there’s something good in it for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Ease up on that schedule. If you don’t feel completely wonderful about saying “yes” to something, then say “no” instead. Cramming too many activities into your day brings unnecessary stress. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you worry about how to make something happen, it never will. Keep your eye on the ball and do what comes naturally. You’ll be drawn to the people who can help you figure out your best next step.

“For 30 Years Charles Boyd Chevrolet Has And Always Will Be Your Best Dealer, Your Best Price, Your Best Decision, Guaranteed!”



Better than comparable Toyota Camry or Honda Accord with an amazing 33 MPG, 5 Star Safety with OnStar standard, and North American Car of The Year! “The Malibu is more adept than ever at cruising America’s highways and byways, ...With a quiet and lush interior, and newfound levels of refinement and style, the Malibu is a legitimate contender for best-in-class bragging rights..” - Motor Trend “It’s a first-class, affordable, four-cylinder, front-wheel-drive, midsize family sedan now equipped with a transmission worthy of the name. This is major. This is a breakthrough.” - Washington Post

“The 2009 Malibu looks wonderful, is solidly built and carefully crafted inside and out, offers good fuel economy, drives wonderfully and is priced to sell in serious volumes.” - Kelley Blue Book

Best in Class 32 MPG, 5 Star Safety w/ OnStar Standard, Oustanding Looks and a Great Value!

“Make no mistake, there are no excuses. This is the car the folks at Chevy should have built long ago, but they get serious props for making it happen today.” -- AutoWeek


“Perfect for a family of five, Equinox delivers versatility, handling, safety, roominess and a broad array of features at a low price point - $23,000. If less stress an more fuel economy are on your shopping list for a new vehicle, you may want to experience the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox before you make you final decision.” - “The 2010 Equinox is arguably the best-looking vehicle in the segment and uses some of the most advanced technology under the hood.” – Automobile “With improved fuel efficiency and an attractive look inside and out, it sould win over shoppers in this segment.” -

“It takes the brand and this particular model a huge step forward.” - BusinessWeek



Best in Class with 24 MPG, 5 Star Safety with Onstar Standard, and the option of 8 Passenger Seating!! “So, if you don’t want the stigma of driving a remarkably sensible vehicle -- a minivan -- and you don’t want the coarser manners of a body-on-frame truck-based SUV, you probably do want a vehicle like the Traverse.” -- Road and Track “Tasteful design, high quality materials, and one of the most accommodating interiors in the class.” - Kelly Blue Book

“OK, we’re going to get straight to the point here. The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro rocks. After years of anticipation, Chevy’s new Camaro not only lives up to the hype but also redefines what a muscle car can be.” -- Edmunds


“[T]his car should make quite a splash with its affordable price and classic muscle car feel because the 2010 Camaro really is the perfect blend of old and new.” -- Carseek “In an era when ‘mega-ultra-hyped blockbuster’ often means ‘I wasted my money on that?’ the new Chevy Camaro pushes back against unfulfilled expectations. It delivers. The look is there. The performance is there. The value is there.” -- Motor Trend
