could not be immediately reached for comment. Blanchard after the dismissal of the suit said of Iglesias, “She had a pretty strong personal ax to grind with the chief. She was beating a dead horse. There just wasn’t anything left there, other than her campaign to get rid of her boss, her crusade against the chief.” Monteith on Friday told the Dispatch that, eventually, the Court of Appeals will issue an order setting the time frames for both sides to submit legal briefs, that is, written arguments in support of their positions. And the briefs will be presented to a three-judge panel, which will make a decision, Monteith said. Dever in March 2008 had already dismissed part of Iglesias’ claims, including that there was a mass conspiracy against her. The claims left to be decided were regarding her federal rights to freedom of speech and whether there was a wrongful discharge under state law. Dever wrote that a public employer may restrain job-related speech in order “to maintain discipline and ensure harmony as necessary to the operation and mission of its agencies.” Iglesias began working for the city in December 1999 when Roger Paul was chief. Marrow hired Wolford as chief in June 2000. Dever wrote that Iglesias became concerned that Wolford allegedly began embezzling funds in November 2001. In May 2004, the city investigated Iglesias’ allegations about the chief’s alleged embezzlement and was satisfied with the chief’s explanation. The chief’s reason was he was trying to find out whether any Oxford police officers were protecting illegal drug dealers, Dever wrote. Iglesias spread rumors Please see LAWSUIT, page 3A

Saving seeds can help stretch a frugal gardener’s budget In these tough economic times, we’ve all had to cut back on optional expenses like fancy restaurant meals, name-brand clothing, and premium cable channels. But plants, seeds and gardening tools? Those can hardly be classified as optional! Nonetheless, saving a buck is Paul always a McKenzie good idea, Cooperative and seed Extension saving is one way to feed the gardening addiction without being forced into bankruptcy. After all, there is no cheaper way to increase the number of plants in your garden. My first attempt at seed saving was a bed of cosmos I planted a few years back. Like many flowers, the seeds are easily plucked
from the dried blossoms. Since they are already dry, they can go straight into storage. An envelope, plastic bag, or empty coffee can works fine. With some flowers, like zinnias and marigolds, the seeds must be separated from the dried petals and other flower parts. This is an easy, although somewhat tedious, chore. You would be wiser than me if you label the seeds you collect with the species and variety. Noting the date is also helpful, as viability of stored seed decreases over time. Collecting seed from hybrid varieties may be wasted effort. At best, the progeny will be less desirable than the parent, perhaps being leggier or less prolific or a different color. At worst, the collected seed may not germinate at all. Refer back to the original seed tag, plant label, or catalog description to determine which plants are hybrids.
Some flowers, like rudbeckia and celosia, have tiny seeds. They can be collected by harvesting the whole flower and shaking them upside down over a container. In general, the seeds will be dark when mature. In addition to those already mentioned, columbine, sunflowers and marigolds are good candidates. This year, I collected seeds from melampodium, so I’ll find out the results next season. Saving seeds from apples, peaches and other tree fruits is generally not recommended. First, you most likely have a cross rather than a clone of the parent. Second, most fruit trees are grafted onto desirable rootstock. Your seedling will instead be growing on its own roots, which may not be suitable for our climate. Many gardeners save seeds from the vegetable garden. I won’t go into details, since that train has already left the station for
New Vance County family heritage book to be published Efforts are underway to produce a family heritage book for Vance County that will include family stories and photos from current and former residents of the county. Anyone with family roots in the county is invited to submit a free 500-word family story and picture for the book, which will be published late next year. Additional space will be provided for founding families who have extensive backgrounds in the county. In addition to Vance Coun-
ty family stories and photos, the new hardbound collector’s edition book, entitled “The Heritage of Vance County, North Carolina - 2010” will feature stories and pictures of Vance clubs, churches, schools and communities. The book is part of the North Carolina County Heritage series, which already includes books from more than 80 North Carolina counties.

this year. Note, however, that seed maturity often occurs long after the fruit has become inedible, such as the missed cucumber or zucchini that looks like a football, or the sweet corn that has turned hard. The other challenge is separating the seed from the pulp and getting them dry. Don’t hesitate to experiment, and to collect from the gardens of friends and neighbors. At public gardens, check their policy before collecting, as some may prohibit it. Although, come to think of it, I may have found a use for the Army surplus camo I found at the thrift store, thinking I might take up hunting. Turns out, my wife has prohibited me from shooting Bambi. But a covert seedcollecting operation? How could she object to that?

about Wolford’s alleged embezzlement and about other alleged indiscretions in his personal life, Dever wrote. Iglesias’ behavior led her co-workers to complain to Wolford, Marrow and Jenkins that Iglesias was disrupting the workplace. Wolford’s alleged misconduct became an issue in the 2005 municipal election contest between Mayor Al Woodlief and Frank Strickland, which Woodlief won. Strickland again opposed Woodlief in 2007 and is again opposing Woodlief in a Nov. 3 contest in which departing City Commissioner Steve Powell additionally

So does a considerable amount of gossip, he acknowledged. “When people who used to live here come back to town, they come right here first to find out what’s happening,” Lumford said.
is seeking election to the top position as a write-in candidate. Woodlief, in a 2005 preelection advertisement, asserted the State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) had thoroughly investigated Wolford and had found no evidence of wrongdoing. Noelle Talley, a spokeswoman for state Attorney General Roy Cooper, told this reporter there never was an SBI probe of Wolford. District Attorney Sam Currin has maintained he did not find any proof of criminal wrongdoing by Wolford and, as a result, saw no need to ask the SBI to explore the allegations of embezzlement.
“Most of our advertising is word-of-mouth,” he added. “It’s a nice, friendly atmosphere that’s kind of laid back and conservative.” Venable, who graduated in 1973, remembers being a student at Vance High School and Lumford cutting his hair back then. “I enjoy the customers coming in,” Venable said. “I get along well with all of them. I appreciate to the highest Mr. Scarboro helping me get started at working in here.” Jefferson said a lot of the

Dever wrote that, “Even assuming that Iglesias’ initial allegations of misconduct touched on a matter of public concern, once the alleged misconduct had been investigated and not substantiated, the disruptive effect of her continued conduct outweighed any continued interest in her speech.” Iglesias’ claim of wrongful discharge under state law was rejected by Dever because she had relied on free speech rights in North Carolina’s constitution, which are similar to those in the federal constitution.

Iglesias gave an interview to Raleigh television station WRAL, which aired a story about Wolford’s alleged embezzlement. Wolford told the station that he had not wanted anyone to know he had been checking to see whether there were any “bad cops,” but the station also noted the city and Wolford had agreed to share control of the drug fund. The WRAL story came slightly more than two weeks before Iglesias was fired, with Iglesias saying on camera, “The fact is, there was a crime committed here and that’s my opinion.”

Statistical Areas, increased in one and remained the same in one. “ The global and national recession continues to affect our state,” said ESC Chairman Moses Carey Jr. “While 76 counties across North Carolina experienced an unemployment rate decrease, we must remember that most of these same counties remain at a high rate. We’re encouraged by some recent job announcements, but we are also aware of some continued layoffs. The ESC continues to help job seekers connect with employers all across the state.”

North Carolina had 45 counties which were at or below the state’s unadjusted unemployment rate of 10.4 percent, the ESC reported. Currituck County had the state’s lowest unemployment rate in September, at 5 percent, followed by Hyde, 5.9 percent; Orange, 6.3 percent; Dare, 6.8 percent; and Watauga, 6.9 percent.

Even though the local North Carolina Employment Security Commission office is handling “a few more job orders” and the September jobless rate dipped a bit, the local unemployment situation is little changed. The Commission reported Friday that the jobless rate decreased in 76 counties — including Vance, Granville and Warren. John Shea, assistant manager of the local ESC office, said that the job orders are for customer service and health care positions, but “basically, nothing has changed that much.”
In Vance, the September rate dropped to 13 percent from 13.3 percent. The rate mean that 2,580 workers out of a labor force of 19,867 could not find work. Other nearby counties also experienced declines in their jobless rates from August to September. Granville fell to 10.2 percent from 10.4 percent, meaning that of its 25,848 member workforce, 2,625 couldn’t find jobs. Warren had the biggest decline, 13.2 percent to 12.7 percent, meaning that of its 7,931 member workforce, 1,011 were unsuccessful in their search for jobs.

Franklinton-born Soupy Sales, 83, dies DETROIT (AP) — Soupy Sales, the rubber-faced comedian whose anythingfor-a-chuckle career was built on 20,000 pies to the face and 5,000 live TV appearances across a half-century of laughs, has died. He was 83. Sales died Thursday night at Calvary Hospice in the Bronx, New York, said his former manager and longtime friend, Dave Usher. Sales had many health problems and entered the hospice last week, Usher said. At the peak of his fame in the 1950s and ‘60s, Sales was one of the best-known faces in the nation, Usher said. At the same time, Sales retained an openness to fans that turned every restaurant meal into an endless autograph-signing session, Usher said. Sales began his TV career in Cincinnati and Cleveland, then moved to Detroit, where he drew a large audience on WXYZ-TV. He moved to Los Angeles in 1961. The comic’s pie-throwing schtick became his trademark, and celebrities lined up to take one on the chin alongside Sales. During the early 1960s, stars such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Curtis and Shirley MacLaine received their just desserts side-byside with the comedian on his television show. Sales was born Milton Supman on Jan. 8, 1926, in Franklinton, N.C., where his was the only Jewish family in town. His parents, owners of

The family later moved to Huntington, West Viriginia. His greatest success came in New York with “The Soupy Sales Show” — an ostensible children’s show that had little to do with Captain Kangaroo and other kiddie fare. Sales’ manic, improvisational style also attracted an older audience that responded to his envelope-pushing antics. Sales, who was typically clad in a black sweater and oversized bow-tie, was once suspended for a week after telling his legion of tiny listeners to empty their mothers’ purse and mail him all the pieces of green paper bearing pictures of the presidents. Sales returned from the

Navy after World War II and became a $20-a-week reporter at a West Virginia radio station. He jumped to a DJ gig, changed his name to Soupy Heinz and headed for Ohio. His first pie to the face came in 1951, when the newly christened Soupy Sales was hosting a children’s show in Cleveland. In Detroit, Sales’ show garnered a national reputation as he honed his act — a barrage of sketches, gags and bad puns that played in the Motor City for seven years. After moving to Los Angeles, he eventually became a fill-in host on “The Tonight Show.” He moved to New York in 1964 and debuted “The Soupy Sales Show,” with co-star puppets White Fang (the meanest dog in the United States) and Black Tooth (the nicest dog in the United States). By the time his Big Apple run ended two years later, Sales had appeared on 5,370 live television programs — the most in the medium’s history, he boasted. He had a pair of albums that hit the Billboard Top 10 in 1965; “Do the Mouse” sold 250,000 copies in New York alone. Sales remained a familiar television face, first as a regular from 1968-75 on the game show “What’s My Line?” Sales is survived by his wife, Trudy, and two sons, Hunt and Tony, a pair of musicians who backed David Bowie in the band Tin Machine.

Food labeling program halts over FDA concern
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A food labeling program created by U.S. manufacturers is being voluntarily halted after federal regulators said it could be misleading to consumers. Companies such as Kraft, Kellogg and General Mills worked together to launch the “Smart Choices” program earlier this year. The program labels appear on the front of foods that meet certain nutritional standards. The Food and Drug Administration said earlier this week such programs may be misleading consumers about the health benefits of certain foods. Smart Choices has been criticized because its guidelines allow cereals

January, but are still down 23 percent from four years ago. Sales rose around the country, especially in the West, where they grew 13 percent from a month earlier. Foreclosure sales are booming in cities like Los Angeles, San Diego and Las Vegas. First-time homebuyers and investors are snapping up those homes and taking advantage of low mortgage rates. These buyers can also take advantage of a tax credit of 10 percent of the sales price, up to $8,000, if the sale is completed by the end of November. The tax credit is so important to some buyers that they are adding a clause to their contracts, allowing them to back out if the sale doesn’t close by Nov. 30. While home sales and housing construction have risen steadily after hitting bottom earlier this year, most economists believe that the worst isn’t over for home values. Prices could see a double dip because rising unemployment is causing more foreclosures. The jobless rate, currently at 9.8 percent is expected to rise as high as 10.5 percent next year, causing more people to be unable to afford their monthly mortgage payment.

“There’s more supply that’s going to come into the marketplace,” said Stan Humphries, chief economist at real estate Web site Zillow.com. “That additional supply will outpace demand.” With concerns about the housing market still prominent, Congress is considering several proposals to extend the tax credit for first-time buyers. Senators Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., and Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., want to extend it through June 30, and expand it to include all home buyers, at an estimated cost of $16.7 billion. Realtors and homebuilders are pressing lawmakers to do so, arguing that the tax credit is crucial to get the housing market back on its feet. One potential roadblock, however, emerged this week. There are concerns that some of the 1.5 million applications for the tax credit are fraudulent. At a hearing on Thursday the Treasury Department’s inspector general for taxes questioned the legitimacy of some 100,000 claims for the credit, potentially including some illegal immigrants and 580 people under 18. The youngest taxpayers to apply for the credit were four years old.

News Briefs ICE nabs suspected Cuban smugglers FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) — Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say they have dismantled a Cuban smuggling ring operating on Florida’s Atlantic coast. ICE spokeswoman Nicole Navas said agents arrested seven people Oct. 15. Local police arrested another suspect on drug charges. Another remains at large, officials said. The alleged Port St. Lucie-based group faces charges including conspiring to smuggle Cubans into the country between June and December of 2008. They could face decades behind bars if convicted. Overall, Cuban migration has plummeted in the last year. Authorities attribute the drop to stepped up investigations and prosecutions, the lifting of some U.S. travel restrictions, a bad economy and a crackdown on the communist island.
Priest found slain in rectory of his N.J. church CHATHAM, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a priest was found slain in the rectory of his northern New Jersey parish one day after police held a public safety seminar there. Morris County Prosecutor Robert Bianchi said Friday that the body of the Rev. Ed Hinds had wounds “consistent with a homicide.” The prosecutor would not say how the priest was killed, and no one has been arrested. The clothed body of the 61-year-old priest was
found in the morning at St. Patrick’s Church in Chatham. That’s about 10 miles west of Newark. Police held a safety seminar at the church Thursday in which they fingerprinted and photographed young children.
Two teens admit to role in Ore. school shooting plot SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Two Oregon teenagers have admitted their role in an alleged plot to shoot students at administrators at schools in the Willamette Valley farming town of Turner. The Statesman-Journal reported a 14-year-old girl admitted in a juvenile court hearing Thursday to conspiracy to commit assault. A teenage boy also admitted to a similar juvenile charge and was ordered to serve five years on probation. Authorities say two girls and two boys plotted to shoot specific administrators and students at Cascade Junior High School and Cascade High School in April. Marion County Deputy District Attorney Kurt Miller says the hearings took the place of a trial for the two teens. The girl is awaiting disposition, the equivalent of sentencing in adult court, on Nov. 4.
Would-be bounty hunters in Va. nab innocent woman BRISTOL, Va. (AP) — Police in Virginia say three would-be bounty hunters face charges after they impersonated drug task force agents and
nabbed the wrong woman. The innocent woman was mistaken for a suspect who had skipped bond. Bristol police say three people who hoped to collect a reward from a bail bondsman handcuffed the woman and sexually assaulted her during a strip search Oct. 9. Sgt. Steven Crawford says the three face charges of abduction, robbery, impersonating a law enforcement officer, conspiracy and sexual battery. Two of the suspects have been arrested, and police are searching for the third. A fourth person has been charged as an accessory. The innocent woman caught by the suspects was taken to a lockup but let go when jailers quickly realized she wasn’t the person wanted for skipping bond.
Marijuana clinic staged near Montana cop shop GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — A marijuana clinic is being held in a Montana civic center — just down the street from a police station — to teach hundreds of people how to get state-issued medical marijuana cards. The event Friday in Great Falls is one of many clinics held in the state by Jason Christ, founder of the Montana Caregivers Network, to ease fears and tell people medical use of pot is legal. Lighting a bowl of homegrown marijuana to ease his chronic back pain, Christ says people need to know the law. The clinic comes as the Obama administration is loosening guidelines on federal prosecution of medical marijuana.

U.S. swine flu deaths pass 1,000 ATLANTA (AP) — Federal health officials say swine flu is more widespread now than it’s ever been. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says there as much illness now as the winter peak of regular flu seasons. CDC officials said Friday that swine flu has resulted in more than 1,000 deaths so far. Public demand for the new swine flu vaccine has caused long lines and frustration in several parts of the country. But worries about flu has also prompted record interest in seasonal flu vaccine as well. About 60 million people have been vaccinated already — an unprecedented number for October. Most seasonal flu shots usually aren’t given until later in the fall. CDC officials say nearly 100 pediatric swine flu deaths have been reported.
N.Y. teen’s hidden camera catches adult locker thief SELDEN, N.Y. (AP) — An adult hall monitor at a high school on New York’s Long Island is facing petit larceny charges after she was apparently caught on video breaking into school lockers. The video camera was secretly planted by Newfield High School senior Tiana Rapp, who says she was victimized twice and had $190 taken from her. Rapp says officials at the school in Selden told her that a student was likely responsible, but she remained suspicious.
She and a friend set up the video camera, which captured the hall monitor rifling through their belongings. Police were contacted and the hall monitor was ticketed. A school statement says the woman has resigned.
Israeli team loses $22,000 to Staples Center thief LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police say $22,000 in cash and valuables were stolen from a visiting Israeli basketball team during an exhibition game with the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center. Lt. Albert Gavin says somebody apparently got into the locker room Tuesday and stole watches, jewelry and $15,000 in cash from 10 members of Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv. Gavin says the team noticed the theft during halftime of Maccabi’s 10896 loss. Gavin says police weren’t notified of the theft until after the game and weren’t able to get statements from the victims. Investigators hope to identify a suspect from the arena’s security video.
U.S. diocese pays $1.2 million in abuse case BELLEVILLE, Illinois (AP) — A Roman Catholic diocese in Illinois has agreed to pay $1.2 million to settle a 6-year-old lawsuit by a former altar boy who claimed he was molested by his parish priest. The settlement announced Thursday by the Diocese of Belleville and confirmed by the plaintiff’s
attorney followed negotiations worked out last week. Court papers only list the plaintiff as “John Doe.” His lawsuit stems from alleged abuse by the Rev. Raymond Kownacki of Dupo at St. Theresa’s Parish in Salem, the Belleville News-Democrat reported. Kownacki has refused to comment publicly. He has an unlisted telephone number. Last year, a St. Clair County jury awarded $5 million to another former altar boy who alleged that he was sexually abused by Kownacki at the Salem church. The diocese is appealing that verdict.
Russian gets 18 months in gay immigration fraud SEATTLE (AP) — A Russian-born man accused of advising straight immigrants to claim homosexuality — and potential persecution in their home countries — when they applied for asylum has been sentenced to 18 months in prison. Steven Mahoney touted himself as an expert in immigration affairs and ran Mahoney and Associates in Kent, which advised immigrants on how to stay in the U.S. He pleaded guilty in April, acknowledging that from 1998-2007 he filed as many as 99 false immigration documents and was paid between $1,000 and $4,000 for each. In addition to false claims of homosexuality, he advised some clients to claim they could be tortured due to their religious practices or political views. His ex-wife, Helen Mahoney, was sentenced to six months. Both are naturalized U.S. citizens from Russia.

Slain Fla. girl’s mom vows to find killer Police shoot, kill man in By RON WORD Associated Press Writer
ORANGE PARK, Fla. — Somer Thompson was last seen alive walking along the sidewalk in front of a vacant house, and authorities said Friday that they’re searching for anyone who saw what happened to the 7-year-old after that. Her teary but resolute mother warned her daughter’s killer: “We’ll get you.” The day after the child’s body was identified, authorities said they had ruled out all 161 registered sex offenders who lived within a 5-mile radius of Somer’s home. Despite doggedly pursuing hundreds of leads, police have not made an arrest. Investigators sifted through evidence from the vacant house and the Georgia landfill where her body was discovered Wednesday after investigators followed garbage trucks some 50 miles away from her neighborhood in suburban Jacksonville. Somer vanished while walking home from her elementary school on Monday afternoon. The vacant house is on her route through a heavily populated, well-manicured neighborhood, and witness-

Members of Somer Renee Thompson’s family hang a sign Thursday in the front yard of her home in Orange Park, Fla. es last saw the girl alive in front of it. She had become upset as she walked home with other children Monday and ran ahead of the group. Somer never came home. However, no witnesses have come forward to say they saw Somer attacked or abducted, sheriff’s spokeswoman Mary Justino said. “What we’ve been trying to figure out is who frequents that area, because obviously it’s more than just the people who live there,” she said. Neighbors said they were accustomed to watching out for each other’s children as they walked to and from school. “Everybody knows ev-
erybody here. If there was a stranger on the street, we’d be looking at watching where they were going, seeing what they were doing here,” said Monica Loeb, a family friend of the Thompsons. Somer’s mother, Diena Thompson, had a friend greet her children as they came home from school Monday because she was working, according to a police report. When Somer didn’t arrive with the other children around 4 p.m., the friend sent Diena Thompson a text message. She raced home, and flagged down a passing police officer while she, her other children and her boyfriend scoured the neighborhood.
An autopsy has been completed and investigators know how Somer died, but authorities won’t disclose their findings or any details about the body. Missing child posters featuring Somer’s face, framed by her thick brown bangs, still plaster nearly every utility pole along the mile-long route from her elementary school to her home. Diena Thompson declined to be interviewed Friday by The Associated Press. She spent part of the day making funeral arrangements, and a law enforcement officer was seen carrying a child’s white dress from the family’s home. A viewing will be held Monday night and a funeral will follow on Tuesday. But Thompson appeared red-eyed on all three network television shows and said on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that investigators will catch her daughter’s killer. “We’re coming for you,” she said. “We’ll get you, and hopefully justice will be served.”
drug raid at mobile home LILLINGTON (AP) — A man has been shot and killed in a drug raid and two North Carolina police officers have been placed on administrative duty during the investigation. The Fayetteville Observer reported that Adrian Castaneda was shot to death during a drug raid in Lillington early Thursday. Investigators say Harnett County sheriff’s detec-
tive Tommy Parker and special agent Michael Hall with the State Bureau of Investigation fired their weapons during the raid. The SBI says putting the officers on administrative duty is typical in an officer-involved shooting. Investigators say officers who went into a mobile home were confronted by two men with guns. Officers shot Castaneda, who died at the scene.
Gunman prays with clerk before finishing robbery
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Police say an armed robber spent nearly 10 minutes on his knees praying with a clerk at an Indianapolis check-cashing business before fleeing with $20 from the register. Security video from the Advance America branch clearly showed the man’s face during the stickup Monday, and a 23-year-old Associated Press writers Kate surrendered Tuesday on Brumback and Brent Kallestad a preliminary charge of in Orange Park and Jennifer robbery. Kay in Miami contributed to Police say the robbery this story. took an unusual turn after the gunman came around the counter when the clerk starting crying and talking
about God. The man said he had a 2-year-old child to support and asked for prayers about overcoming his hardships. Police say the man removed the bullet from his gun and gave it to the clerk before taking her cell phone and the money.

Police find body of missing 9-year-old Mo. girl ST. MARTINS, Mo. (AP) — The body of a missing 9-year-old Missouri girl was found in a wooded area near the state capital on Friday, two days after she was last seen walking from a neighbor’s home, police said. Cole County Sheriff Greg White said a juvenile, described only as a “person of interest,” was taken into custody. The juvenile was
acquainted with the girl, Elizabeth Olten, White said. The sheriff not give any details on how Elizabeth Elizabeth died or about the juvenile in custody except to say that the person lived in the area west of Jefferson
City and was older than the girl. White said police found written evidence and that the juvenile led searchers to Elizabeth’s body in a wooded area. He did not elaborate. Elizabeth was last seen when she started walking home from a neighbor’s house on Wednesday evening. A woman who answered a family spokes-
woman’s phone Friday said Elizabeth’s family had no immediate comment. Earlier Friday, about 70 people had searched for Elizabeth on horseback, with all-terrain vehicles and on foot while another 70 investigators checked leads, White said. Several hundred people had joined the search Thursday despite a steady rain and rough terrain.

Daily Meditation For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13
Stop the spending Remember Cash for Clunkers? Well, call this winding-down federal program “Bucks for Bungalows.” An unexpected tide of homebuyers pushed housing sales up 9.4 percent in September — much higher than projected by economic experts and the largest monthly increase in more than 26 years. But that high tide will certainly recede before the end of the year. Why? Because all those buyers were, according to the Associated Press, “racing to complete their purchases before a tax credit for first-time owners expires.” Part of the federal economic stimulus package, the $8,000 tax credit is set to expire Nov. 30. So buyers wanting free bucks better move fast. But that doesn’t mean you can’t bargain-hunt. Aldo Martin, 28, of Covina, Calif., said his family put in offers on 16 homes before having one accepted. “We’d go look at eight houses and if we liked five of them, make offers,” said Martin. “Your odds are better. We got aggressive.” Yet one Century 21 agent in California said that half of her transactions in September were low-priced foreclosures and “short sales,” where the seller made less than they owned on their mortgage. And economists predict that though prices have stabilized — thanks to the free money for buyers, perhaps? — the bottom of the price barrel has probably not yet been reached. Senators such as Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., and Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., want to extend the tax credit through June 30 — and expand it to all homebuyers — costing taxpayers another $16.7 billion. That’s a very poor idea. If there’s one thing we’ve learned from these government giveaway programs it’s that the stimulus is only temporary. Sure, the feds can convince people to buy a product or property by giving away money. But taxpayers can’t afford to do that forever. And the economy will only truly improve when government stops spending money it doesn’t have to convince us to spend money we don’t have.
Quotable “It just doesn’t make any sense. The pilots are saying they were involved in a heated conversation. Well, that was a very long conversation.” — Bill Voss, president of the Flight Safety Foundation in Alexandria, Va., after two Northwest Airlines pilots overflew their Minneapolis destination by 150 miles before discovering the mistake and turning around. “Had we not done this tactic, I believe that body would have been buried beneath hundreds of tons of debris, probably would have gone undiscovered forever.” — Clay County (Fla.) Sheriff Rick Beseler, on the quick discovery of 7-year-old Somer Thompson’s body, two days after she disappeared. Beseler said the discovery may have saved precious evidence that could lead to her killer. “If President Eisenhower would have walked down the street, no one would have recognized him as much as Soupy.” — Dave Usher, Soupy Sales’ former manager and longtime friend, after the comedian died at age 83.
There is much gnashing of teeth and rending of cloth these days about the death of civility. Apparently, like Cupid with his arrow or a pixie with fairy dust, some magical sprite used to enchant America’s political combatants, ensuring that all public discourse was full of beg-your-pardons and pleaseand-thank-yous. But we have offended our little leprechaun. He’s taken his Lucky Charms and gone home, leaving Americans angry, cranky and rude. Or at least that’s what I gather from all this talk of lost civility. Personally, I’m not sure I know what people are talking about. When was this Golden Age of civility? Was this glorious era of politeness during George W. Bush’s presidency? Funny, that’s not how I remember it. So maybe the 1990s was the last great outpouring of lovingkindness? Hmmm, no. At least I don’t think Clarence Thomas would say so. Nor do I think anyone who watched the Clinton show would claim it was a hallmark of sober debate on either side. Clinton’s minions attacked victims of his sexual aggression or revelations about his accomplices in his adultery as “bimbo eruptions.” Was civility the norm when Rep. Charlie Rangel said of Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America, “Hitler
wasn’t even talking about doing these things?” Was it the 1980s, when Ronald Reagan was routinely dubbed a nuclear-trigger-happy “amiable dunce?” I was young then, so I’ll check with Robert Bork and see what he thinks. Perhaps it was in Jonah the 1960s Goldberg and 1970s?
Sure, there was admirable civil disobedience in the beginning, but there was a lot more uncivil disobedience, what with all the domestic terror attacks and the protesters asking LBJ how many kids he killed today. The 1950s? Who knew the McCarthy era was such a highwater mark of domestic tranquility? What about the 1930s? America saw its worst labor violence, and FDR had to put up with demagogues like Huey Long and Father Coughlin (who attacked him from the left, by the way). How about the 1910s, when Woodrow Wilson threw political opponents in jail? Or in 1919, when he dubbed “hyphenated Americans” (i.e. “GermanTribune Media Services
Americans) traitors? “I cannot say too often -- any man who carries a hyphen about with him carries a dagger that he is ready to plunge into the vitals of this Republic. ... If I can catch any man with a hyphen in this great contest I will know that I have got an enemy of the Republic.” OK, enough of all that. And yes, let me offer a sincere denunciation of rudeness for rudeness’ sake. Let me also concede that there is no shortage of bilious, nasty rhetoric on the right. But here’s the thing. First, it was ever thus. American democracy has always been a hurlyburly. More important, a lot of the complaints about incivility today are really complaints from the people in power or their supporters in the media, aimed at the folks who won’t shut up and get with their program. And there’s something distinctly undemocratic about that. The civility caterwaulers claim that Obama’s opponents are trying to “delegitimize” the president, often suggesting that such efforts are racist. But what some see as delegitimization, others see as criticism. What strikes me as truly uncivil is the effort to demonize critics of the president with racial bullying. In fact, I think Obama really does have a problem with dissent. In August he said: “I
don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way ... I don’t mind cleaning up after them, but don’t do a lot of talking.” On health care he’s been saying the time for debating his plan is over, even though the president didn’t even have a plan to debate. Now his White House is targeting Fox News and urging other news outlets to ostracize it. Does any serious person in America believe that if Fox News were supportive of the president’s agenda, this White House would be bemoaning the network’s lack of objectivity? Democracy is about disagreement, arguments. Citizenship in America requires speaking your mind. Indeed, it’s worth recalling that the freedom of the press enshrined in the First Amendment always envisioned a partisan press. “Objective” journalism is a 20th century confabulation, as alien to the Founders’ vision as transporter beams and time travel. Civility came to mean politeness in the 16th century; before that it meant being a citizen. It seems to me that authentic civility requires some incivility.

Letters to the Editor Cart before the horse To the editor: On Friday, Sept. 25, 2009, the Dispatch ran a front page story about the new Vance Water District. The story was basically a timeline of what’s next in the push for a county water system. Rube Goldberg sure would be proud! According to the story, residents in Phase 1A, Sandy Creek, were to be sent water bills on Oct. 1. A bit hard to believe, given that: • No water lines are in the ground; • No meters have been installed; • No water is flowing; • County leaders don’t know how much Henderson is going to charge them for water; • No cash-flow analysis has been made public; • The water advisory the Senate will allow terrorist committee, to be appointed suspects to come to the United on Oct. 5, has not been apStates once the president actupointed; ally comes up with a plan on • Public sign-up meetings what do with them once they are haven’t been held; and here. • The sign-up period for No word yet on when just customers doesn’t end until such a plan will be forthcoming.

Afghanistan, Gitmo, and an administration without a plan Over the last month our nation has focused a great deal of attention on Gen. McChrystal’s substantial troop request for our mission in Afghanistan. This is the sort of matter which we should be talking about, because the debate between a counterinsurgency versus counterterrorism approach, which is at the heart of this decision, is sure to set the tone for policies and missions well beyond the Afghan borders. But as important as the debate is, Secretary Gates and field commanders are reminding us that there comes a point where the lack of action makes the decision for us. This troop request comes with a reasonable window of opportunity attached. The president’s continued inaction on this front and his failure to come to a conclusion on a longterm strategy for our mission in Afghanistan creates uncertainty for our troops on the ground and puts into question our resolve in the ongoing war against international terrorists and those who aid and abet them. However, another key component of our approach to combating terrorism and terrorists is also lingering without a conclusive plan and course of action — the closure of the Guantanamo Bay detention facility and the handling of the remaining detainees. While the troop level debate has drawn all recent attention, this policy decision is also one with tremendous impact. As you will recall, on Jan 22, 2009, President Obama signed executive orders regarding Guantanamo Bay, interrogation techniques and detention policies. One of the executive orders required that Gitmo be closed within a year. However,
as the months passed, it has become obvious to all, including the administration, that such a timetable was unfeasibly aggressive. In fact, to date even some of the most basic aspects of closing the base remain undecided. Whether the facility is closed by January 2010 or at a later date is not the Michael only subject for discussion Reagan here. Rather, Distributed by this quanCagle Cartoons dary serves as yet another example of this administration’s inability to set and execute effective strategies when it comes to our fight against terrorism. With a backlog of detainees waiting for trial and no clear plan on where to house them once the facility itself is closed, it is clear just how vital it was for the administration to come up with a comprehensive plan before pronouncing the closure of the facility. Obvious as this it, it seems to have escaped the Obama administration, not just back in January, but even now, late in October. On Tuesday, the administration achieved a minor “victor”’ with the Senate’s passage of an amendment to the $44 billion Homeland Security budget which will allow the government to continue to transfer detainees from the facility to the United States for prosecution — with the very telling caveat that before any additional transfers take place, the administration put a plan in place. Yes, you heard that right —

Today In History
DEAR ABBY: My sisterin-law has just informed me that she doesn’t think it is as important for her daughters to attend college as it is her sons. My mother-in-law recently made a crack about my finances because she knows I’m paying off my student loans for two degrees. My father-in-law can’t understand what “all the fuss is about” now that my oldest daughter is preparing for college. Abby, I have friends in their 30s and 40s who, for one reason or another, are single women supporting themselves. Even some who have degrees are struggling, but they are able to own their own homes because they are able to earn decent salaries. What should I say when my mother-in-law and sister-in-law put me down for higher learning? Neither of them went to college or has ever worked. They would be on welfare if they didn’t have their husbands’ income. By the way, I’m not having any problem paying back my student loans, and my husband is proud of my accomplishments. — EDUCATED IN TENNESSEE DEAR EDUCATED: Your mother-in-law and sister-inlaw are misguided. They do not understand the financial realities that exist for women today because they have never been exposed to them. Nothing that you can say to them will change their mind-set. So rather than respond to their naive comments, take every opportunity to encourage your nieces to pursue their educations so they can live independent lives. And pray that your father-in-law and brother-in-law leave their wives well-provided-for should tragedy strike, because otherwise they could wind up on your doorstep.
DEAR ABBY: I was raised from an early age that if you play a game, you have to play fair and obey the rules. Those rules were never bent regardless of what the game was or who we played with. Over the years I have played games with many people, and while I realize it’s possible for people to play the same game slightly differently, the rules still applied. What I don’t understand is cheating. A couple Dear I know allow their Abby children to Universal Press play games Syndicate with adults and let them cheat. What they’re doing is obvious, and their parents even joke about it. I no longer enjoy playing with this family, but I don’t know what to do or say. I have tried to subtly discourage and stop the deceptions, but I don’t want to seem like a sore loser. Any suggestions? — PLAYS BY THE RULES, URBANA, OHIO DEAR PLAYS BY THE RULES: Yes. Do not play games with the family if the children are involved. It’s not about being a sore loser; it’s about not being a chump. By allowing their children to ignore the “rules,” these parents are sending the message that rules don’t apply to them. Because the children cheat when they play with you, it’s safe to assume that they think it’s acceptable to do it with other kids. And when their contemporaries realize what’s going on, who do you think won’t be allowed to join their games — or anything else? Look at it this way: From little cheaters, big cheaters grow.

Eagles stun Louisburg, 14-13 By GEOFF NEVILLE The Franklin Times
LOUISBURG — Louisburg’s Warriors almost dipped into their seasonlong cauldron of fantastic finishes once again Friday night. But this time, it wasn’t meant to be. Instead, Warren County held off two late Louisburg threats, including a missed field goal in the closing seconds, for a 14-13 victory in a Northern Carolina Conference football showdown at Patterson Field. Louisburg, which has four victories of less than seven points this fall,

dropped to 7-2 overall and 2-2 in the NCC. That leaves the Warriors in third place heading into next Friday’s home game versus Northwest Halifax. Warren County’s conquest was its first in conference action, as the Eagles are now 2-7 and 1-4. Louisburg scored on its fourth possession of the contest as quarterback Deandre Blacknall hooked up with Ryan Branch on a 10-yard fade pass for a touchdown at the 9:24 mark of the second stanza.

Kerr-Vance’s varsity soccer team was eliminated from state playoff contention with a 2-0 loss at Fayetteville Academy Friday. The 15th-seeded Spartans kept Fayetteville off the board in the second half, but couldn’t make the best of some opportunities to overcome the two-goal halftime deficit. “We played great. Their keeper made some huge saves and we blew some really good chances that would have been the difference,” said KVA coach Rick Frampton, whose team finishes the 2009 campaign with a 10-12-4 record. Fayetteville scored their first goal 20 minutes into the match, and added their second three minutes before the half. “We had some really good opportunities that we didn’t finish. That’s been the story all year, it’s not anything new,” said Frampton. “We played them really tough and unfortunately we’d rather end the season on a win, but... we played really hard.”
Crusaders crush Vikes
Northern falls 43-0 to Cardinal Gibbons From STAFF REPORTS
Cardinal Gibbons built a 28-0 halftime and never looked back in its 43-0 win at home over Northern Vance Friday. Gibbons scored three of its touchdowns on Viking turnovers, including an interception return for a touchdown just before halftime. “We are just making too many mistakes,” said Northern coach Cedric Crudup. The Vikings held the Crusaders to one touchdown after the first quarter, but couldn’t get on the scoreboard with an answer. Northern (1-8, 0-3) put up just 70 yards of total offense on Gibbons, which improved to 8-1 overall and 3-0 in Carolina 3A. The Vikings host J.F. Webb next week before closing out the season with crosstown foe Southern Vance. “These next two games are rival games,” said Crudup. “We do have something to play for. They have to let this one go and come back strong next week.”

Orange seeing blue Raiders get a big night from Henderson, defense in conference win By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor
Southern Vance’s offense got things started with a big first half, but it was the defense that sealed the deal late in the fourth quarter. After their 24-6 lead over Orange dwindled to 24-21 in the fourth quarter, the Raider defense came up with two big interceptions to hold on for the crucial 30-21 Carolina 3A Conference win.
The Raiders got a big day from junior running back Nunu Henderson. Henderson carried it 22 times for 100 yards and a touchdown. He also caught three passes for 66 yards and a score. “What a great little package,” Southern coach Mark Perry said of Henderson. “It’s kind of like Christmas time, and everybody wants to open a big box, but all the real good things come in small packages.” “That kid does a world of
wonders. He runs his little heart out. I don’t know where we’d be without him right now because he’s come up with some big plays.” Already down 18-6, Orange put themselves in a deeper hole late in the first half. In the waning seconds before intermission, Fred Blanks threw a pass that was picked off by Josh Young near midfield and returned all the way into the end zone with Please see RAIDERS, page 3B

DURHAM — Maryland’s visit to Duke will only feel like a nonconference game. No, these two charter members of the Atlantic Coast Conference haven’t left the league. But with 12 teams in the ACC and a rotating, two-division schedule, sometimes it does seem like the Terrapins and Maryland (2-5) Blue Devils at Duke (3-3) live in differSaturday, 1:30 p.m. ent football universes. Hard to believe that a pair of schools that meet twice a year on the basketball court under Mike Krzyzewski and Gary Williams will match up on a football field Saturday for the first time since 2004. The Blue Devils’ roster is full of players who have never played against the Terps, and they’re led by a man who has never gone against them as a head coach. So David Cutcliffe turned to the film room to familiarize his team with its one-time rival. “They don’t know a lot about Maryland, so I’ve done a little education with them,” Cutcliffe said. “Kids don’t see much past now, today. So all they know is that Maryland had a difficult start. But when you put on the tape, they see a good football team. You don’t really have to convince kids — they’ve seen enough tape, they know what a good team looks like and what a bad team looks like. “Maryland, a lot of people will take exception to this because of their record, but they’re not a bad football team. They just haven’t taken care of the ball in critical situations, and that’s cost them games.” Indeed, the numbers haven’t been kind to the Terps (2-5, 1-2) so far. They rank near the bottom of the league in scoring offense (22.9 points per game), scoring defense (33.7 ppg), rushing offense (100.7 yards per game) and rushing defense (158.3 ypg), and are worst in the ACC with 20 turnovers.

Tigers too much for Webb, 27-20 By KELLEN HOLTZMAN Dispatch Staff Writer
Less than two minutes into the fourth quarter, J.F. Webb appeared to be in danger of being blown out on homecoming against Chapel Hill. Webb fell behind 27-6 in the fourth quarter before storming back to cut the lead to seven. The Warriors got the ball back with less than a minute to play, but couldn’t convert in their 27-20 loss to Chapel Hill Friday. “There’s no such thing as a moral victory. I don’t believe in it,” said J.F. Webb coach Currin. “I’m happy our kids fought back. To have the ball to go down and score and win the game — if you had said that at the beginning of the first quarter, I bet most people in the stadium wouldn’t have believed it.” After Joel Adcock rushed for a touchdown and a two-point conversion, Webb’s defense allowed a
first down before stuffing Tiger running back Daniel Watson on fourth and two to regain possession with 36 seconds left on the clock. However, the Chapel Hill drive burned all of Currin’s timeouts. Adcock connected with Ty Breedlove for a first down at the Webb 41 before another completion to Matthew Gumm around midfield. Gumm was tackled inbounds and the Warriors couldn’t get back to the line of scrimmage before the clock rolled to zeros. “We got a lot of momentum in the fourth quarter,” said Currin. “A few more seconds would have helped. Another timeout would have helped. When they made that first down, it kind of took us out.” Adcock brought Webb within a touchdown when he scored from five yards out on a quarterback keeper. Adcock plunged across the goal line for the two-point converPlease see WARRIORS, page 3B

NFL Panthers LB Davis questionable against Bills CHARLOTTE (AP) — Carolina Panthers leading tackler Thomas Davis is questionable for Sunday’s game against Buffalo with a hamstring injury. The starting weakside linebacker missed his second straight practice Friday with an injury apparently sustained in practice Wednesday. Kickoff specialist Rhys Lloyd, running back Jonathan Stewart, fullback Brad Hoover and linebacker Na’il Diggs are also questionable, but all practiced in full Friday. The speedy Davis is off to the best start of his career with 55 tackles, two sacks and an interception. He’s spearheaded Carolina’s improved play on defense the last two weeks. Landon Johnson would likely fill in if Davis can’t play, with James Anderson also seeing more time.
Ochocinco, Hope, English, Vilma draw fines NEW YORK (AP) — Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco was fined $10,000 by the NFL on Friday for a uniform violation. The colorful Cincinnati wideout was fined for wearing the wrong colored chin strap (black) during the Bengals’ loss to Houston last Sunday. Also fined $10,000 was Tennessee Titans safety Chris Hope for roughing-the-passer against New England in a 59-0 loss during which Tom Brady threw for six touchdowns. San Diego rookie linebacker Larry English was fined $7,500 for a horse collar tackle in the Chargers’ loss to Denver on Monday night. Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma received a $10,000 fine for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Giants quarterback Eli Manning. Earlier in the week, the league suspended Carolina safety Dante Wesley one game for launching himself into defenseless Tampa Bay returner Clifton Smith. Wesley will lose $36,000 in salary for the game.

Avalanche get the best of Hurricanes, 5-4 DENVER (AP) — Seeing Darcy Tucker injured on a check into the boards was bad enough. Colorado coach Joe Sacco tried to make sure things didn’t get any worse, urging his team to rein in its emotions after seeing Tucker taken off the ice on a backboard. The talk seemed to refocus the Avalanche, with Milan Hejduk and Wojtek Wolski scoring goals in quick succession after Tucker’s injury and Colorado went on to beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-4 on Friday night. “You can go two ways there,” Avalanche captain Adam Foote said. “Joe grabbed the guys and told them to regain their composure and not go running around trying to get guys back. “You can lose your whole team on a hit like that, end up in the box and lose the two points. It’s probably a good thing (Carolina forward Tuomo Ruutu) got the major and got kicked out of the game.” Tucker was hurt when he was slammed into the boards by Ruutu as he tried to play the puck in the Hurricanes’ end at 14:34 of the second period. Tucker’s face hit the glass hard and he fell to the ice on his back unconscious as Avalanche doctors and trainers attended to him, bringing a hush to both benches and the crowd. Medical personnel ap-
subsequent power play, converting a feed from Paul Stasny to put the Avalanche up 3-2 at 10 minutes of the second period. Forty seconds later, Wolski scored his team-leading fifth goal of the season, one-timing a shot off a pass behind the net from Chris Stewart. “After what happened there, we got two goals and got momentum in the game,” Stastny said. “First and foremost, I’ll keep him in my thoughts.” Carolina coach Paul
Maurice said he didn’t see Ruutu’s hit on Tucker. “All I can say is the league will take care of looking at it and I’m a huge, huge Darcy Tucker supporter and I hope he’s OK. I really do,” said Maurice, who coached Tucker with Toronto. He added that Ruutu’s hit also cost the Hurricanes. “We missed him,” Maurice said. “There’s no question. On the road, to lose a forward like that, we missed him.” Carolina, trying for its first win in five road games, pulled within one on Matt Cullen’s goal at 16:15 of the second period and was in position to tie it early in the third period when Ray Whitney was awarded a penalty shot after David Jones interfered with his path to the net from behind. Whitney rushed up to net and let loose a shot from up close that goalie Craig Anderson blocked by getting his stick out front and dropping to his knees. Anderson had 32 saves on the night while making his 10th consecutive start to open the season, a franchise record. He had his seventh win this month, tying the team record for most wins in October. The teams traded goals in the third period, with Paul Stastny scoring his second goal of the night with Colorado in a 5-on-3 power play.

LHS ran one play up the middle and then spiked the ball to set up an attempt by Ragland. The kick was long enough, but sailed wide left. Miles was 10-of-16 passing for Warren County for 120 yards. The Eagles compiled 186 total yards and took advantage of four
Louisburg turnovers. LHS racked up 257 yards — 182 on the ground and 75 through the air. Blacknall combined for 125 total passing/rushing yards, and Hunt ran for a game-high 80 yards on 17 totes. Markeith Kearney was Louisburg’s tackle leader with 10. Warren County will return home next Friday to meet Bunn, which is currently in second place in the NCC.

Both teams picked up defensive stands on fourth down in the final quarter before Louisburg eventually took over at its own 41 with 4:03 left. Aided by a 15-yard face mask infraction by the Eagles, LHS methodically moved downfield and got to the WC 8 before fumbling the ball. Warren County’s Tevin Henderson recovered with 57 seconds remaining, but Louisburg still had three time-outs. The Eagles were unable to move the ball and punt-

Florida State coach Bobby Bowden waves his hat after Florida State defeated North Carolina 30-27 Thursday in Chapel Hill.
Seminoles’ win quiets talk of Bowden retirement By BRENT KALLESTAD Associated Press Writer
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Bobby Bowden wanted to find out what his Florida State team was made of: men or mice. Trailing North Carolina 17-6 at halftime and playing badly, Bowden and his coaches tore into the Seminole players with a verbal lashing the coach said they deserved. “You are not playing up to your potential,” Bowden recalled of the scolding. “You’ve got 30 more minutes to go out there and become a man or a mouse.” The Seminoles gave up another touchdown and trailed 24-6 midway through the third quarter before they broke loose behind Christian Ponder’s brilliant passing. With Ponder hitting his last 16 passes, the Seminoles scored 24 points in less than 15 minutes to grab a 30-27 win over North Carolina on Thursday. “I can’t remember a better performance by a quarterback under the circumstances,” Bowden said Friday. “How could it be any better?” Bowden compared Ponder’s performance to a fourth-quarter comeback win that Charlie Ward led the Seminoles to at Georgia Tech in 1992 and a second-half comeback engineered by Chris Weinke that fell short at Miami in 2000. “They’re winners,” Bowden said, grouping Ponder with his two Heisman-winning quarterbacks. Ponder’s heroics saved Bowden from his first four-
game losing streak at Florida State and temporarily quieted critics who want the 79-year-old coach to retire from a program that has slipped from its status among the collegiate elite in recent seasons. “You can imagine what it would have been if we had lost,” Bowden said. “The only answer is to win. You have to win. That’s where the pressure comes.” Aside from Ponder, the Seminoles (3-4, 1-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) looked inept for much of the game — managing only 43 rushing yards and being tagged with 16 penalties. Bowden, hoarse on Friday from a lack of sleep, said he couldn’t remember a team that won while playing “that bad and that awful.” Ponder was the exception. He continued his near flawless play this season, completing 33 of 40 passes for 395 yards and three touchdowns while logging his sixth straight game without an interception. The junior from Colleyville, Texas, has completed 70 percent of his passes for 2,176 yards and a dozen touchdowns with just one interception. He has thrown 237 passes since his last interception. Despite their 1-3 ACC standing, the conference’s mediocre Atlantic Division remains up for grabs and the Seminoles will have a say in who wins it. Bowden knows that the morale boost from the comeback win at North Carolina won’t last long. “What does it mean?” Bowden asked. “Seven more days of peace?”
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Experience will not be on Navy’s side when the Midshipmen host Wake Forest on Saturday. Wake Forest’s spread offense is led by Riley Skinner, a four-year starter and the school’s all-time passing leader. Navy’s run-oriented triple-option attack will be directed by Kriss Proctor, a sophomore making his first career start. Proctor is replacing Rickey Dobbs. An MRI this week revealed that the Douglasville, Ga., has a cracked bone in his right knee. Dobbs, who has a team-high 579 rushing yards, leads the nation with 16 rushing touchdowns. Proctor played the final 24 minutes in Navy’s 63-14 win against Rice on Oct. 10. He rushed for 82 yards and three touchdowns on 14 carries. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound California native displayed a good grasp
tice repetitions with the first team and performed well, according to Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo. “Kriss has gotten a ton of reps in practice and knows what to do. I have complete confidence that coach (Ivin) Jasper will get him ready to go,” Niumatalolo said. “There might be more question marks if we hadn’t seen (Proctor) perform in a live Division I game. He got in there against Rice and did some good things.” Wake Forest head coach Jim Grobe did not know about Dobbs’ injury earlier this week when he talked about trying to stop Navy’s unique offense. The Demon Deacons gave up 520 yards rushing in two games against the Midshipmen last season, and that was when they had a pair of NFL draft picks in linebacker Aaron Curry (Seattle Seahawks) and cornerback Alphonso
Smith (Denver Broncos). “They run the tripleoption to perfection. Defensively, we’ve got some thoughts, but whether we can execute that or not ... we’ll have to wait until Saturday to find out,” Grobe said. “It’s not how much the coaches know, it’s how much we can teach the players in one week. We’ve got a lot of new guys playing them this year.” Free safety Josh Bush said it was invaluable to watch videotape of Wake Forest’s three games against Navy in 2007 and 2008. “It helps as far as knowing what they’re going to do and getting used to things they’re going to do,” Bush said. “I haven’t had a chance to play against Navy, so I can go back and watch film of Chip Vaughn and Kevin Patterson and see how they played their assignments, and hopefully that will help me on Saturday.”
non-losing season — since 1994. They’ve barely resembled the team that lost its opener to Richmond of the FCS. “It’s definitely a different team, a different atmosphere,” McCullough said. Duke hung close with nationally ranked Virginia Tech before claiming a three-touchdown victory at North Carolina State — its first road ACC win in
almost six years. “It’s going to change. I said it over in Raleigh (after the N.C. State win), and I meant it,” Cutcliffe said. “There’s a lot of people taking Duke football seriously. We’re serious about Duke football, and we will win (as a program). I don’t feel that’s arrogant to say that, and if it is, then I’ll be arrogant, because we’re going to win.”
receiver sweep to the right side of the field before the point after touchdown was missed to make it 27-12. Chapel Hill built a 13-0 halftime lead behind the rushing efforts of Daniel Watson, who finished with 31 carries for 138 yards. Watson scored with 5:50 left in the first quarter to make it 7-0 on a short, two yard rushing touchown. He extended the lead to 13-0 on another short goalline play, bursting through the middle for the score. Tiger quarterback Stephen Wistner set up the first touchdown with passing plays of 15 and 28 yards. Wistner was 5-of-12 passing for 90 yards. The Chapel Hill drive began when John Porter picked off an Adcock pass and returned it 32 yards to the Warrior 38. Another Webb turnover started the Tigers’ second scoring drive when Adock was stripped by a Chapel
Hill defender at the Warrior 29. “After four turnovers, we were really lucky to still be in it,” Currin said of the first half. “The defense played a heck of a game.” Webb wasted no time making up for the early turnovers as Devante Hicks returned the second half’s opening kick to paydirt for an 87-yard touchdown. Hicks bounced to the left and outran the Tiger defense down the left sideline for the score. The Warriors failed to cash in on a two-point conversion, leaving the score at 13-6. Chapel Hill responded with an aerial strike from Wistner. The quarterback found Eddie Burgaw sliding towards the left-side pylon with 6:04 left in the third for a 25-yard touchdown. The Tigers increased the lead to 27-6 early in the fourth quarter
when Watson skirted around the Webb defense and down the sideline for a 60-yard touchdown run. “They’re really good up front on the offensive and defensive line,” Currin said. “It took us awhile to get used to their size and speed.” Webb (3-6, 1-2) and Chapel Hill (4-5, 2-1) came into the contest with identical records. Now, Currin must turn his focus to preparing for Northern Vance in a crucial Carolina 3A game for the Warriors. “Your goal is to win every week,” said Currin. “We want to beat Northern Vance next week. We want to beat Cardinal Gibbons the week after that. Northern Vance is a big rival for us. Anytime we play one of the Vance schools or Granville schools, it’s going to be a rivalry.”
another pass — this one into the arms of Southern linebacker William Talley. The Raiders capitalized on the short field when Harris connected with Henderson for a 21-yard touchdown. The failed 2-point attempt made it 30-21. Octavius Holden clinched the win for Southern Vance by picking off another Blanks pass with a little over a minute to play. Harris took a couple of knees to run out the clock. Perry said the gameplan coming into the second half was to win the field position battle. “I think that made a big difference for us. I know three or four of their five drives, they started inside the 30-yard line. It’s hard to go 70-80 yards without having a penalty or having something bad happen on your way down there, especially in high school football,” he said. “We went back to simplicity this week and kept it simple and it’s paid off big dividends for us.” The game had the mak-
ing of a high-scoring affair early, with both teams scoring on their opening drives. Orange took a 6-0 lead after marching downfield after the opening kickoff. Blanks threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to McCulley. The Raiders responded with Henderson’s first big play of the game. Facing fourth down on the Panther 37, Harris completed a long pass down the sideline to Henderson, who was down at the 2. Harris kept it himself for the touchdown score that tied it at 6. Harris’ biggest run of the night set up the next Southern score. A 36-yard scamper gave the Raiders first down on the 13. On the next play, Henderson took the handoff off to the left and all the way in. The failed 2-pointer made it 12-6. A big return for Orange’s Drevis Torian to midfield was all for naught on the next possession, as the Panthers went three and out. Southern’s Hikeem Jones responded with a big punt return of
his own, taking it all the way to the Orange 29. The drive concluded with a 5-yard touchdown from Harris to Shaquille Lemay with 42 ticks left in the first half. Young’s interception came less than 30 seconds later, but McCulley’s kept hope alive for Orange. The Panthers’ potent rushing attack was led by Torian, who tallied 100 yards on 11 carries. Harris rushed for 59 yards on 11 carries for Southern. He was 7-of19 passing for 99 yards, but was hurt by several dropped passes on the night. Tommy Warren contributed 36 yards on the ground. The Raiders rebounded from a 28-13 loss at Cardinal Gibbons, while Orange was riding high after a 35-9 drubbing of J.F. Webb. With the win, Southern improves to 1-2 in conference play. They travel to Chapel Hill next week.
of the triple-option. “I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous, but I can’t let that affect the way I play,” Proctor said. “I have confidence in everybody around me and I think they have confidence in me as well.” There is history between Wake Forest (4-3) and Navy (5-2), which is looking forward to hosting an Atlantic Coast Conference on Homecoming in Annapolis. Wake Forest routed Navy 44-24 on its Homecoming in 2007. “This is one of those games you circle on the calendar before the season,” Proctor said. “They beat us in the bowl game last year and we want to get redemption. It’s a huge game and we have a good scheme so we feel like we can get the win.” Dobbs did not practice at all this week and was wearing an immobilizer brace on his right leg. Proctor took all the prac-
TERPS-DEVILS, from page 1B not show on the stat sheet, Maryland believes things are getting better. The Terps held Virginia to 67 yards rushing and held the Coastal Divisionleading Cavaliers’ offense out of the end zone until the fourth quarter of last week’s 20-9 loss. That’s a significantly better performance than in an overtime victory over FCS team James Madison or a loss to mid-major Middle Tennes-
see State. “We look at ourselves as making strides. Each game we’ve kind of improved,” Maryland defensive back Jamari McCullough said. “Now we have to continue to improve and work on getting some turnovers.” The Blue Devils (3-3, 1-1) are entering a stretch of winnable games that could help propel them to their first bowl — and first

It’s one of those deals where you just want to punch somebody in the mouth and just punch it in there.” The Warrior drive started on the Chapel Hill 27 after the Tigers punter was tackled on fourth down following a mishandled snap. The one-two punch of Adcock and Akeem Daniel pushed the ball inside the red zone to set up the Adcock score. Adcock finished 8-of-12 for 41 yards in addition to 32 yards on the ground. Daniel carried the ball 19 times for 84 yards. Trailing 27-6, Webb came to life on a 60-yard drive, capped off by a Darquis Thomas touchdown. Thomas scored from five yards out on a wide

Senior wide receiver Donovan McCulley returned the next kickoff all the way in for a touchdown as the half ended. The 75-yard return and the successful two-point conversion made it 24-14 at the break. “Was that a heartbreaker or what? You’re getting ready to go in here at halftime with a three-touchdown lead and now all of a sudden it’s two,” said Perry. “But, you know, on... a positive note, we recovered from it and took one down there late and scored and won this football game.” “It showed a little character there.” After a scoreless third quarter, Orange’s offense got going in the fourth.

Newman, Gordon to start up front at Martinsville By HANK KURZ Jr. AP Sports Writer
MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Jimmie Johnson finally wasn’t flawless at Martinsville. The points leader and winner in five of the past six NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races on the smallest, tightest oval in the series qualified 15th Friday. Ryan Newman won
the pole for Sunday’s race with a lap at 96.795 mph, followed by Jeff Gordon at 96.519. Mark Martin, who trails Johnson and Gordon at the midpoint of the 10-race playoff, will start fourth, giving Hendrick Motorsports two cars in the front two rows. The pole is Newman’s second of the season and 45th of his career. “It’s the place to be, no
Redskins VP: Zorn’s job safe for now By JOSEPH WHITE AP Sports Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) — Well, that should quiet things down for a while. The Jim Zorn unemployment watch is over. Jerry Gray, as it turns out, isn’t a coach-in-waiting about to get promoted any day now. Another week of Washington Redskins craziness ended with an actual message of stability Friday: The front office said Zorn will be the coach for the rest of the season. “We were the soap opera for the NFL the last two weeks,” quarterback Jason Campbell said, “so hopefully it’ll calm down a little bit.” The unexpectedly strong vote of confidence was delivered in the morning by executive vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato. After letting anxiety build for several days following last week’s loss to Kansas City, Cerrato opened his ESPN980 radio show by saying: “Jim Zorn is the head coach of the Washington Redskins and will be for the rest of this season, and hopefully into the future.” The news dampens the rampant speculation that began when Zorn was asked to give up his play-calling duties following the 14-6 loss to the previously winless Chiefs. Zorn called the move “uncomfortable” and players expressed general concern over the state of the franchise, yet the powers-that-be remained silent until Friday. “The frustration is very high, everywhere around here,” Cerrato said. “But the relationships internally within this organization, quite frankly, remain the same.” Cerrato did not deliver a similar message to Zorn in person, but Zorn didn’t feel the need for it. The coach appeared to take the news in stride. “I don’t necessarily have a reaction to that because I am the head coach,” Zorn said. “I want to be here for the next 10 years. That’s my story.” The Redskins are 2-4 despite playing one of the weakest schedules in the league over the last five weeks. The offense, overseen by Zorn, has yet to score more than 17 points in a game and has twice failed to score a touchdown at home. Players, tired of answering endless questions about their coach’s job, welcomed the news as they prepared for Monday night’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles. “That should relieve a lot of tension and a lot of stress,” Campbell said. “Guys don’t have to worry about thinking about it or talking about it.” Linebacker London Fletcher said it was tough enough to win in the NFL without having to deal with uncertainty about the coach. “It allows us to go and

really exert all our energy and focus into the opponent,” Fletcher said. “I’m happy for him. I’m happy to know we’ll have stability this year, and into the future.” Zorn said if Cerrato’s endorsement makes for a more focused team, he’ll take it. “If it comforts the players — awesome!” Zorn said. “But I think our players are focused regardless of what the situation is. Whatever has to be said, I guess it has to be said, but we go on.” The uneasiness at Redskins Park began 2 1/2 weeks ago, when Snyder and Cerrato hired longtime NFL consultant Sherm Lewis as an offensive consultant. Lewis has now been promoted to play caller, even though he is still learning the play book and personnel. Those moves were seen as an attempt to undermine Zorn, positioning the franchise for a possible coaching change, perhaps to secondary coach Gray, during the upcoming bye week. Cerrato offered a different perspective, saying the moves were done to help Zorn, who is in the second year of a contract that’s guaranteed for three years. “Look at all the things that we’ve done to try to help,” Cerrato said. “You could have done other things drastically. No, you have confidence in him, because you want him to do well.” Cerrato said he now hoped Zorn’s status is “totally crystal clear.” “Hopefully we can just concentrate and focus on winning football games,” he said. Cerrato had several axes to grind during his radio show. He chided the media for reporting “false rumors,” but did not explain why he waited five days to break his own silence about the play-caller switch or Zorn’s overall status. He declined to speak to reporters after practcie. Cerrato also belittled what he called “off-thewall” comments made by Hall of Fame receiver Steve Largent, a close friend of Zorn’s who called the switch to Lewis
doubt, and it’s the place to finish,” Newman said. Newman downplayed Johnson’s poor showing, saying he noticed the three-time defending series champion spent very little time in practice working on his setup for the two-lap run. In all, only four of the 12 participants in the Chase for the championship qualified ahead of John-
son. Most chose to focus on their racing setup with prospects for additional practice sketchy. Heavy rain fell early at the speedway, and more is forecast for Saturday. The results, still, were a source of hope for Johnson’s Hendrick teammates and closest pursuers, especially Gordon, with only five races left to close a 90-point gap.
“Any time we can put a gap in between us, as well as the pit selection, that’s a step in the right direction for us, and we’re going to take anything good that comes our way and try to take advantage of it,” said Gordon, a seven-time polesitter on the 0.526-mile track. Johnson said he isn’t concerned with where he will start.
“It’ll hurt us on pit road for sure, but I really think that the way the car’s going to be and how well I can work traffic here, that it shouldn’t be too big of a problem,” he said. The top 10 also includes Martin Truex Jr., starting third, and David Reutimann, Casey Mears, Loey Logano, Bobby Labonte, Reed Sorenson and Kevin Harvick.

Section C Saturday, October 24, 2009
Dear God, this isn’t happening The groom and I were on the veranda, waiting to cross the bridge spanning a creek which led to an island where the guests were seated and the bride awaited us inside a gazebo. Then it happened. “Call 911! Stop the music!” I looked across the creek to see an elderly woman lying face down in the rocks of the creek bed. Now, at this point, the groom has left my side and is running across the bridge. The groom’s father is running back across the bridge. The groom’s sister, who is seven months pregnant, is up from her seat running and hollering “Nana, Nana!” in full panic mode. Suffice it to say, panic had now broken out. I learned later that “Nana” had actually been in a wheelchair that had been carried down the hill by its own velocity toward the creek. She was crying out, “Dennis, Dennis, Dennis!” all the way down Rev. Steven as she picked up momentum Harris and was cataCentral pulted into the Baptist creek. She was one tough lady. With a bloody nose, some mud, and a skinned knee, she was soon back in the chair, ready for the wedding to proceed. Unbelievable! That humid August evening, I learned that just because you have a lot of areas in your life that look “wedding perfect,” it doesn’t mean that there is not an area of dangerous exposure ready to wreak havoc at a most inopportune moment! We, as people, have a way of spending a lot of time and energy creating facades in our lives so that we look good. All the while, there are certain areas prone to devastation. The Lord calls these weak areas sin — anything we think, do or say that is against his righteousness. These sin issues have a nasty way of taking us with sweeping velocity into destruction. “Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool.” Isaiah 1:18 It’s important that we remember that: • God invites us to come and discuss the very issue that bothers him most. God is not afraid to deal with the skeletons in your closet. He is fully able to handle the worst you can throw at him. In fact, scripture says he welcomes it. • God can take the worst in your life and turn it around for the good. God is supernaturally transformational. • Whatever you have done in the past is the past with God. He makes all things new. He is not like you and me — he does not rehash the past. • You can have the nicest façade and be a disappointment to your creator. He knows your heart and your intents. Until sin is dealt with in your life, there can be no relationship of any kind with God. “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes. Cease to do evil. Learn to do good.” Isaiah 1:16 With this in mind, worry less about “wedding perfect” facades and think more about those unguarded creek-bank disasters on the horizon.

Former religion reporter now preaches from Wisconsin pulpit By PATRICK CONDON Associated Press Writer
FALL CREEK, Wis. (AP) — On the first Sunday morning of October, pastor Steve Scott looked far beyond the surroundings of his western Wisconsin congregation to find worthy subjects for their prayers: recent natural disaster victims in Indonesia and the Philippines. There’s nothing unusual about clergy taking inspiration from headlines, but for Scott it’s instinctive. He spent 23 years as a journalist at the St. Paul Pioneer Press, most of the last five as religion reporter for Minnesota’s second-biggest newspaper. “What you get with Steve is someone who is able to take current events and use them as a launching pad for sermons and biblical study,” said Glen Mabie, a parishioner and a former TV newsman in the nearby city of Eau Claire. Scott’s previous job seemed tailored to his lifelong interest in faith and spirituality and he figured it would be his for decades. But in 2005 his newspaper eliminated the beat, a step many other newspapers are making in lean times. At least seven other metro dailies also cut religion beats, and many others ended or trimmed weekly religion sections, according to the Religion Newswriters Association. Scott, now 49, was reassigned to cover several St. Paul suburbs. He was “petulant ... pouting ... not very professional,” he recalled. When the paper offered buyouts at the end of 2006, he took the opportunity without knowing what he wanted to do next. He was interested in religion even before he covered it as a reporter. His father, who died when Scott was 6, was a Methodist pastor; after his death, Scott’s mother for many years was organist at a Methodist church in Eau Claire, where Scott sang in the choir and was active in the teen youth group. Once at college Scott stopped worshipping regularly, but he said he never stopped believing in God, and he minored in religious studies. Even as a sports journalist, Scott kept that interest alive. In 1999, a year before he got the religion beat, he took a seminary class at United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities. He did so because it “sounded fun.” Scott likes to talk about the notion of a calling. Though the term is most often applied to clergy, he believes it’s pertinent to anyone trying to figure out how they can best use their abilities to make the world a better place. “I absolutely believe, as corny as it might sound, that I was called to be a journalist when I was 14,” he said. But one’s calling can change, he said. The buyout money gave him a few months to think about what to do with his life, and soon he returned to the seminary. He planned to earn a master’s degree and approach religion as an academic. He got work as a consultant for North Presbyterian Church in Eau Claire, but when the pastor there died unexpectedly, the congregation asked Scott to take over. “We can see the signs when we look back that there was something more coming for him,” said the Rev. Ann Scott, Scott’s wife since 2007 and a Methodist pastor in nearby Chippewa Falls. “We weren’t exactly sure what that was. But we believe now that God was at work.” Scott serves every Sunday at the churches in Fall Creek (9 a.m.) and Eau Claire (10:30 a.m.), tackling the challenges of two tiny, graying congregations. Next summer he’ll become a full-fledged Methodist minister and get his own congregation somewhere in Wisconsin.

Rev. Steve Scott worked as a newspaper reporter for 23 years at the St. Paul Pioneer Press before he took a buyout in 2006, went to seminary, and began his journey toward becoming a full-time pastor. At the Oct. 3 service, he apologized to his parishioners for the chill in the sanctuary. “You’ll be happy to know if you weren’t at the church council meeting — we discussed the furnace,” Scott told the 15 people scattered through the pews. He vowed it would be fixed soon. These days, Scott earns about a third of his Pioneer Press salary. It could approach half once he’s a commissioned minister; he won’t be ordained until the end of a three-year probationary period. Would he still be at the newspaper if he’d never lost his religion beat? “That’s a lot of ifs,” he said. Twice called to professions that are suffering declines, Scott ponders another “if” question about journalism and religion. “Cynically, some of my friends have asked me: ’What are you thinking? You left the newspaper business, and you’re going into the church business?’ They sort of share a demographic of a certain age, and they’re both wondering why young people don’t seem that interested. “Perhaps there’s a point. But I believe in newspapers, and I believe in the church, and despite their flaws, if we didn’t have either one ...” Scott trailed off, not completing the thought.
Grace Baptist celebrates 50 years of faithful service Uncertain of the outcome, Rev. Jesse Matthews knew two things — God had called him to preach, and he wanted to follow God’s will. On the cold Sunday morning of Nov. 16, 1958 with two old coal heaters to provide warmth, a small congregation sat on homemade pews and worshipped together for the first time in the old Caster Wood Shop. About a year later on Oct. 10, 1959, with Rev. U.G. Robertson acting as moderator, Grace Baptist Church was born with 22 charter members. Earlier this month on Oct. 4, both old and new members gathered together to praise and thank God for his blessings over the last 50 years. From the birth of the church until 1969, Matthews faithfully pastored the flock. Although he loved Grace Baptist, Matthews felt God calling him to once again plant another church. Rev. Aubrey Florence, who now pastors Eastside Baptist Church, led the congregation of Grace Baptist from 1969 to 1979. In 1980, Rev. Calvin Mills became the pastor of Grace Baptist, and has faithfully led the flock since. God has used Grace Baptist over the years as a place to grow and call future leaders for the local Christian community. Rev. Donnie Perkinson, who pastors Blessed Hope Baptist Church, and Rev. Ronnie Matthews, son of Rev. Jesse Matthews, who pastors Forest Hill Baptist Church, are two of the people who have grown up in stature and in faith at Grace Baptist Church. There have been many others who have followed God’s calling into missions, music and many other areas of
The Rev. Aubrey Florence (far left) served the congregation as its second pastor while the Rev. Ronnie Matthews (second from left) and the Rev. Donnie Perkinson (second from right) were members of the church before going into the ministry. The Rev. Calvin Mills (far right) is the current pastor. The church’s first pastor, the late Rev. Jesse Matthews, is shown in the separate photo. service. Grace Baptist has a rich history of supporting missions work. Under the leadership of Rev. Jesse Matthews, Grace Baptist first supported Jack and Thelma Moore as they served in Brazil. To this day, the church continues in this tradition of supporting local and international
missions. Grace Baptist would like to thank all of those who participated in and helped with the church’s 50 year anniversary. The church holds Sunday school at 10 a.m. and a traditional worship service at 11 a.m. each Sunday and the public is invited to attend.

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). Keep your eyes peeled for lucky opportunities, however small. Picking up a penny from the sidewalk is like saying to the universe: “Thank you for this unexpected gift.” Which inclines the universe to shower you more often. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A champion of the underdog, you get annoyed when you see stronger people taking advantage of their wealth and exploiting the less fortunate. When you witness this happening today, do something to right the balance. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The ones you love can hurt you the most. You prove how brave and compassionate you are by continuing to open up to them. To love is to be vulnerable. You wisely realize that it won’t work any other way. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re usually decisive, but today you’re having a harder time making decisions about the most mundane things. An experiment: Go with your gut, no second-guessing. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Basically, you wish a certain person would just go away. Maybe Mongolia would be a good choice. Unfortunately, this person doesn’t wish to go anywhere. So consider this an opportunity to learn more about cooperation. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A song on the radio catches you and makes you feel euphoric, sad or romantic for no specific reason. One of the greatest gifts of music is its power to soften the human heart with

a few bars of rhythm and rhyme. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Little bits of wisdom are suspended in the air all around you, like invisible bubbles you could pop with your finger. When you close your eyes and breathe deeply, they become part of you — cosmic osmosis. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In the past, sometimes you have taken on too much and managed to get through it, but there was a cost. You’re wiser now. Be as deliberate as possible about the work and responsibility you accept. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your self-deprecating ways are what make you so adorable. But sometimes — like today for instance — you need to step up and say, “I am great and this is why.” It keeps your humility/confidence ratio in balance. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Use euphemisms. It’s not a bad hair day; it’s a good hat day. And you didn’t eat too much last night; you just reveled in life’s abundance. Perception is a top: Spin it! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A flaky friend is frustrating you more than usual. Flakiness is just a mask for a lack of respect, after all. You might have to say something this time, lest your friendship be in jeopardy. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Tend to your responsibilities quickly, and then go have fun. If it seems that work is dragging on, consider that maybe you’re looking for a more inventive solution than is necessary. Simple fixes are the most effective.
