or anyone with children or teenagers in the house, it’s no surprise that being online is the in thing to do. According to research studies conducted by The Nielson Company, approximately 16 million U.S. children ages two to 11 are active online. This shows an 18 percent increase over the past five years, while the overall Internet population only increased usage by 10 percent. Furthermore, the amount of time children spend online is 63 percent higher than just five years ago. One problem that falls under the umbrella of Internet safety that children may face when they’re online, is cyberbullying. A cyberbully is a minor who uses the Internet, phone or other digital device to post hurtful messages or images to another minor. Parry Aftab, executive director of the charity that runs StopCyberbullying.org says, “They do it by posing as each other, stealing or misusing their passwords, stealing points in online games. They call each other names, or send offensive messages to their friends while impersonating them. They even take embarrassing pictures of others and post them online.” Cyberbullying affects children as young as seven and up through high school. According to a yearlong survey of students in the U.S. and Canada conducted by Aftab, results showed that: � Cyberbullying starts as early as third grade, peaks in fourth grade and again in seventh and eighth grade. � 75 percent of teens reported cyberbullying someone else and 85 percent of students reported they had been targeted at least once in the past year. When kids are still in grammar school, the direct attacks usually consist of making fun of each other and testing limits. In middle school, cyberbullies attack classmates’ reputations and it can escalate from there as children move into high school.

What Can Parents Do?

Aftab recommends open communication between parents and children. “Encourage discussions about what they enjoy online,” she says. “This way you can direct your children to safe sites that fit their interests and it helps your children know you want an active role in their life.” It’s important to make sure that your children feel comfortable coming to you with questions. This should apply to all situations including the computer. If your children feel they can trust you, they are more likely to come to you with tough problems and questions. A survey by WiredSafety found that only 5 percent of middle schoolers would tell their parents if they were cyberbullied, and that they have identified more than 50 different reasons not to tell their parents. If your child is the victim of cyberbullying, the most important thing parents can do, says Aftab, is to give them a hug. “Tell them you love them and how sorry you are that they were hurt. Let them know that the

cyberbully is not the boss of them. And promise not to overreact and take away the technology or call the school, the other parents or the media and make things worse.” The most important thing parents can do to protect children is to monitor computer and Internet usage. “Knowing you are watching, kids are less likely to put themselves in risky situations and you can safely oversee negative or dangerous behaviors,” says Aftab.

What Should Kids Do?

As part of its online community at buildabearville.com, Build-A-Bear Workshop promotes safety tips for kids that can be applied to any online experience.

Stop, Block and Tell

If someone is cyberbullying or trying to get personal information, Stop talking to them, Block them from talking to you and Tell a trusted adult. Aftab also says, “To help them keep a healthy perspective they should ‘Take 5’ when something or someone upsets them online. That means they should do something they love offline for five minutes to help calm down and not do anything they will regret.”

Password Protection �

Passwords should be easy to remember, hard to guess. If your kids have to write it down, it’s too hard to remember. If it’s a pet’s name, their middle name, their favorite sports team, etc., it’s too easy to guess. Sit down with your kids and talk about ideas for a password, and remember a combination of numbers and letters is always best. Don’t allow kids to give out their password to others. 85 percent of elementary school students and 70 percent of teens polled said they shared their password with at least one friend. That’s one friend too many! Friends can be cyberbullies too, signing onto your child’s account, impersonating them and possibly embarrassing them. They can also change your child’s password, locking them out of their account.

Online Safety Guidelines for Parents

Parry Aftab of WiredKids.org has additional tips to help keep kids safe online. � Personal information stays personal. While this is an important rule for children it’s also an important rule for parents. Giving information on your family and your children to the wrong person can be dangerous. � Make sure your child doesn’t spend all of his or her time on the computer. Other kids, not computers, should be their best friends and companions. � Remember to monitor their compliance with safety rules, especially when it comes to the amount of time children spend on the computer. � Warn them that people may not be what they seem to be. The Internet provides a cover for people to put on whatever personas they desire.

More homeowners looking to stoves for heat

Vance fair Warrenton Harvest Market Festival opening Tuesday By CARyN ROUSSEAU aSSOciated PreSS Writer

Five-day run with exhibits, rides, entertainment

For 23 years, Julie Gore has heated her Ada, Ohio, home with a wood-burning stove. When the old one wore out, she didn’t hesitate to buy another for her family room. “It’s warm and toasty,” said Gore, an administrative assistant at Ohio Northern University. “I wouldn’t trade it. If you get a chill you can stand by it and warm up.” Stoves as secondary heating sources are growing in popularity, and come in two basic varieties: wood stoves and pellet stoves. Some proponents say the stoves can be more environmentally friendly and help cut energy costs; other experts say that can vary from household to household. Traditional wood-burning stoves like Gore’s enjoy

stronger sales, but pellet stoves, which burn compressed sawdust, may be gaining, according to the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association, a manufacturers trade group. Wood stoves and wood fireplace inserts saw an 81 percent increase in shipments in 2008, the association said. Pellet stoves and pellet fireplace inserts increased 161 percent that year. Both kinds of stoves are meant mostly to heat specific rooms or groups of rooms, not entire houses. They cost between $3,000 and $4,500 including installation. The federal government is offering a 30 percent tax rebate in 2009 and 2010 for purchases of wood or pellet stoves that meet a 75 percent efficiency requirement. Here are some of the ways wood and pellet stoves compare:

Effort

Efficiency

Wood stoves must be fed with logs, while pellet stoves use 40-pound bags of pellets poured into a hopper. Most pellet stove hoppers hold an entire bag of pellets, which will last about 24 hours before needing to be reloaded, said Leslie Wheeler, spokeswoman for the trade association. With pellet stoves, look for a model with a large hopper opening to make it easier to load pellets, and check for an easily removable ash pan to make cleanup quick, suggested Bob Markovich, the home and yard editor at Consumer Reports magazine, which recently profiled heating stoves. A safety precaution: Homeowners should place carbon monoxide and smoke detectors near the stoves, Markovich advised.

Pellet stoves produce very little smoke, giving them a reputation as more environmentally friendly, Wheeler said. “There’s very, very little moisture in that pellet,” she said. “It burns very cleanly, very efficiently and leaves very little ash.” Ken Hellevang, an engineer with the extension service at North Dakota State University, noted of pellet stoves: “Even the most efficient burning units, there’s still ash that needs to be discarded. There’s some labor involved on a daily basis.” Pellet stoves also require electricity, since fans circulate the heat, so it’s a good idea to purchase a backup battery, Wheeler said. Wood-burning stoves don’t need electricity.

Markovich of Consumer Reports described all heating stoves as “a large version of an electric, $30 space heater.” “People have this sort of rising desire to be off the grid and control more of their own expenditures,” he said. “People are looking for any way they can to save.” But if you’re trying to lower home heating bills, Markovich said, you’ll need to turn down the heat in the rest of the home when using a wood or pellet stove. “To really save money, you have to keep the rest of your house colder,” he said. Another tip: Make sure the square footage you want to heat matches the square footage the stove can warm, Markovich said.

depend on natural gas for heating, according to the federal Energy Information Administration. The agency recently forecast that costs for heating fuels this winter — including natural gas, propane, oil and electric — should all be down. Based on today’s costs, Markovich said, burning pellets costs about 15 percent less than oil and 40 percent less than electric heat, but about 25 percent more than natural gas. “If you’re in fact burning natural gas now, buying a pellet stove is a mistake because it costs more,” he said. Wood stoves can be a bargain for some. “A lot of people are near rural areas where wood is cheap or free,” Markovich said. “If that’s you, that makes financial sense.”

Oxford have been unaccustomed to having an opportunity like this or whether they have been unaccustomed to speaking their minds. “I’m still trying to figure that out,” she said. The couple is posting audio recordings, with an example being the Tuesday debate at the Senior Center between candidate for mayor Frank Strickland and departing City Commissioner Steve Powell, who is campaigning as a write-in candidate for the city’s top position. Mayor Al Woodlief declined to participate in the debate. And Carole Jackson said one plan is to eventually video record and post footage of the City Commission and the County Commission meetings. The Dispatch asked her about her observations of Oxford’s and Granville County’s governments. She said she sees the City Commission and the County Commission as a bit different in how the respective bodies conduct their meetings. She said the county “seems very professional,” with a set process of doing business, while the city is “a little more relaxed in some ways,” with the latter probably being because Oxford is a smaller place and because everyone knows each other. Another observation, from having lived in the Raleigh-Durham area and elsewhere, she said, is she believed officials were responsive to the wants of the people. “I don’t yet know if I see that here,” she said. “I’m still learning. I’m still trying to figure out Oxford.” At the Oxford and Granville County meetings, persons will appear before the respective commissions, will speak their minds and the respective commissioners will listen,

but nothing happens and nothing changes, she said. “That surprised me,” she added. The City Commission limits each person wanting to address them to three minutes. The County Commission on Aug. 3 adopted a policy limiting speakers to three minutes at the podium and limiting the total public comment period to a maximum of 30 minutes per commission meeting. And the policy says the county commissioners will not be required to answer any spur-of-the-moment questions and says speakers will address all comments to the County Commission as a whole and not to an individual commissioner. County Manager Brian Alligood has told the Dispatch he had borrowed the details from another county and that the specifics were “pretty standard.” The commission, however, had been receiving much commentary since June 1 from speakers on both sides of the issue about whether the Confederate monument should remain near the entrance to what will be the expanded and renovated Richard H. Thornton Library. On June 15, the commission, with one member absent, voted without dissent to move ahead with transforming the Thornton Library building and grounds, but with the likeness of the rebel soldier to stay put. Carole Jackson did note to the Dispatch that County Commission Chairman Hubert Gooch has at county government meetings been telling the audience that the county commissioners are listening to the feedback they receive from speakers.

Jackson about what they wanted their finished product to look like and about management issues such as the moderation of comments and how to set up a comment filter to screen for profanity and sexual references. And he said he talked with them about issues related to anonymous blogging versus registration versus non-anonymous blogging. And he said he talked with them about liability issues. Jim Jackson, who manages security matters on Your Voice in Oxford, said that, “We’ve had some abusive comments that we’ve had to delete” and that, “We simply delete ones that violate our terms of use.” Otherwise, he said, he does not edit comments and notes he even refrains from checking for proper spelling. “What you post is what you get,” he said. Carole Jackson said one difference between Home in Henderson and Your Voice in Oxford is that, “We are more issues oriented.” “I try to get some of the news that’s local that I think would be of interest to people to discuss, but I probably do a little more editorializing,” she said, noting she additionally addresses national issues. Another feature of Your Voice in Oxford is her journal, which she said is “sort of my self-indulgent writing” she does on occasions. She said Your Voice in Oxford has approximately 250-300 readers and has received maybe 30 comments. When asked by the Dispatch about the lack of persons providing feedback for public viewing, she said she believes part of the reason is a lot of people do not know about Your Voice in Oxford. She said she does not know whether people in

company while living in Ohio and includes having been editor of The Peoples Forum of The (Raleigh) News & Observer. Jim Jackson, 66, who was born in Ohio and grew up in West Virginia, was a computer engineer who later formed startup companies. He likes to joke that, “I was getting old and running into age discrimination, so I formed a startup company so I could hire myself.” The couple, married since 1967, moved to Oxford because they wanted to live in a smaller community and because their oldest son and his family live at Bullock at the northern end of Granville County. Carole Jackson said that, before starting Your Voice in Oxford, she and her husband “absolutely” consulted with Home in Henderson Editor Jason Feingold, who reports on government meetings in Henderson and Vance County and who posts the text on his blog. Feingold’s wife, Angela, operates the camera, with video footage posted on Home in Henderson in a C-Span-like format. The story of Jason Feingold and Home in Henderson was published by the Dispatch on Sept. 16, 2006. Home in Henderson was the brainchild of Michael Jacobs, a former Dispatch news editor. Home in Henderson debuted on Feb. 1, 2005. Jacobs left Vance County later that year to head for a newspaper job in Atlanta. Feingold worked as a reporter for Home in Henderson for a time before taking over daily management of the operation in March 2006. Feingold bought Home in Henderson from Jacobs in July 2006. Feingold told the Dispatch that, regarding Your Voice in Oxford, he spoke with Carole and Jim

Business closing? Definitely maybe People don’t have the money to buy sale merchandise By AL WHELESS Daily Dispatch Writer

David Vick considers himself the victim of a twoedged sword. “This thing has become very complicated,” is his way of putting it. He says the country’s bad economy — which forced him to begin going out of business July 5 at his car-racing memorabilia and sports-products store in Crossroads Shopping Center — is keeping him from going out of business. When a curious customer asked Thursday morning how things were going, Vick replied: “If you’ll just go ahead and buy everything in here today, I can ride my horse tomorrow.” He thinks people don’t have the money these days to take advantage of merchandise discounted 25 percent to 75 percent. The variations are based on the quantity and quality of the goods yet to go out the door. His initial plan to lock up for good by Aug. 31 has now become one with Shiloh was rushed to no firm date in sight.

Girl with ‘mermaid syndrome’ dies at 10 PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Shiloh Pepin, a girl who was born with fused legs, a rare condition often called “mermaid syndrome,” has died. She was 10. Shiloh died at Maine Medical Center on Friday afternoon, hospital spokesman John Lamb said. She had been hospitalized there in critical condition for nearly a week. Being born with “mermaid syndrome,” also known as sirenomelia, meant that the Kennebunkport girl had only one partially working kidney, no lower colon or genital organs and legs fused from the waist down. Doctors told her parents that she would likely survive for only hours, maybe days. Some children who have survived sirenomelia have had surgery to separate their legs, but Shiloh did not because blood vessels crossing from side to side in her circulatory system would have been severed. She had received two kidney transplants, the last one in 2007. Her story was featured recently on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and other national television programs. Earlier this month, her mother, Leslie Pepin, said her daughter came down with a cold that quickly turned to pneumonia.

David Vick Racing as it appeared in July when the going out of business sale began. Today, shelves are 60 percent bare, but closing the business is now a little iffy. around for him and the company that supplied him with die-cast, miniature cars. Vick came up with the idea of calling it quits when the manufacturer of popular die-cast cars cut his shipments so the company could sell more of them on its websites and at race tracks to bail itself out of its own financial difficulties. Those had been caused by the company’s failing sales of its related accessories such as key rings and jewelry items at race tracks. Vick said the manufacturer — Motorsports Authentics of Charlotte — is considering trying to solve its financial woes by going into bankruptcy and emerging with a reorganization plan. If that were to allow the company to once again provide him with enough diecast vehicles to make a

reasonable living, Vick explained, then he would stop going out of business. However, he added, if the liquidation effort becomes 95 percent complete before that were to happen, if ever, “I’m gone.” The reasoning behind that, as Vick explained it, is simple: Having only five percent of his merchandise left to sell wouldn’t cover the overhead. His expenses include rent and utilities. At this point, he has become his only employee. His operating hours are almost the same as in the good ole days when a constant stream of racing aficionados with healthy amounts of legal tender came to see him. They are 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m.-3p.m. on Saturday. All kinds of discount deals are spelled out on cardboard signs relating to everything from tiny chariots of fire and colorful

racing jackets to clocks and caps bearing the insignia of baseball teams: • “Diecast Cars — 9/$99.” • “Jewelry — 1/2 Off.” • “All Caps — 3/$39.” • “Action-Boxed Cars — $5.” They are contained in or displayed on painted counters, metal stands, wooden shelves and glassed-in showcases that have similar blow-out advertising affixed thereto: • “Umbrella Rack — $75.” • “Drop Bin — $35.” • “12-Foot Cubbies — 1/$200 Ea; 2/$175 EA; 3 Or More/$150 EA.” • “Calendar Rack — $95.” And there was this inevitable, printed warning on a wall behind Vick as he stood at the cash register in an elevated area: “All Sales Final. No Refunds. Exchanges Only.” Contact the writer at awheless@hendersondispatch.com.

WASHINGTON — The number of U.S. banks that have failed so far this year topped 100 on Friday — hitting 106 by the end of the day — the most in nearly two decades. Dozens, perhaps hundreds, of other banks remain open even though they are as weak as many that have been shuttered. Regulators are seizing banks slowly and selectively — partly to avoid inciting panic and partly because buyers for bad banks are hard to find. This year’s 106 bank failures are the most in any year since 181 collapsed in 1992 at the end of the savings-and-loan crisis. On Friday, regulators took over three small Florida banks — Partners Bank and Hillcrest Bank Florida, both of Naples,

three years. The FDIC won’t say how deep a hole its deposit insurance fund is in. It can tap a credit line from the Treasury of up to a halftrillion dollars to cover the gap. The list of banks in trouble is getting longer. At the end of June, the FDIC had flagged 416 as being at risk of failure, up from 305 at the end of March and 252 at the beginning of the year. Yet the pace of actual bank failures appears to be slowing. The FDIC seized 24 banks in July, 11 in September and 11 in October. Individual bank depositors aren’t at risk when a bank fails. Their money is guaranteed up to $250,000 by the government. Ever conscious of maintaining public confidence, agency officials hammer this point in public statements.

and Flagship National Bank in Bradenton — along with four elsewhere: American United Bank of Lawrenceville, Ga., Bank of Elmwood in Racine, Wis., Riverview Community Bank in Otsego, Minn., and First Dupage Bank in Westmont, Ill. When a bank fails, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. swoops in, usually on a Friday afternoon. It tries to sell off the bank’s assets to buyers and cover its liabilities, primarily customer deposits. It taps the insurance fund to cover the rest. Bank failures have cost the FDIC’s fund that insures deposits an estimated $25 billion this year and are expected to cost $100 billion through 2013. To replenish the fund, the agency wants banks to pay in advance $45 billion in premiums that would have been due over the next

Republicans bash Dems on health care proposals By WILL LESTER Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — With landmark health care votes expected in the coming weeks, Republicans are warning voters that the Democratic plan to expand coverage to millions who lack it will increase costs for the average American. In the GOP’s radio and Internet address Saturday, Nebraska Sen. Mike Johanns said the health care legislation would mean higher monthly premiums said Maria Calloway, GHS and taxes, as well as cuts to Chief Nursing Officer. Medicare for older people. “Our patients directly Democrats have denied benefit from our participathese claims, contendtion with the NCSCIP. I ing that health care costs am very impressed with are already spiraling out our medical staff, both by of control and will only the performance level they continue to rise if Congress have achieved and the doesn’t act.

The outstanding score set Granville Health System as the top provider for the orthopedic service in the Triangle area, including Oxford, Henderson, Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Cary and Smithfield.

Granville Health recognized for surgical care performance OXFORD — Granville Health System (GHS) announced the organization earned an NCSCIP performance award at the North Carolina Surgical Care Improvement Project’s (NCSCIP) year two celebration. The award is tied to the Surgical Care Improvement Project, which is a national quality partnership of organizations committed to improving the safety of surgical care through the reduction of postoperative complications. Launched in 2005, the goal of SCIP is to reduce the incidence of surgical complications by 25 percent by 2010. Granville Health System was awarded for Consistent “High Reliable” Performance with CARD2 Optimal Care spanning April 2008 through March 2009. “Quality health care is the cornerstone of our success,” said L.

treating uninsured patients in the emergency room that gets passed on to other patients. In general, the legislation would remake the nation’s $2.5 trillion health care system with a new requirement for most Americans to purchase health insurance, and government subsidies to help lower-income people do so. Insurers would face new restrictions against dropping coverage for sick people or denying coverage to people with pre-existing health conditions. But Johanns, a former agriculture secretary in the Bush administration, said the plan would hurt a cross-section of people struggling in the economic downturn. Factory workers would be hit with higher premiums, while college graduates saddled with student loans would be forced to pay for health care they might not be able to afford, he said.

Obama: Time has come for big banks to help small businesses WASHINGTON — Big banks that got big bailout bucks should return the favor by lending more to qualified small businesses, President Barack Obama says. In his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday, Obama said too many small business owners remain unable to get credit despite administration steps to jump-start lending, which was virtually frozen when the financial crisis took hold last year. “These are the very taxpayers who stood by America’s banks in a crisis, and now it’s time for our banks to stand by creditworthy small businesses and make the loans they need to open their doors, grow their operations and create new jobs,” Obama said. “It’s time for those banks to fulfill their responsibility to help ensure a wider recovery, a more secure system and more broadly shared prosperity,” said Obama. The president said the administration will “take every appropriate step to encourage them to meet those responsibilities.” He did not specify what those steps might be. Obama’s were the latest

instance of the populist tone he has employed to pressure the financial industry. Earlier this week, Obama criticized the banking and finance industries for working through Congress to try to weaken the Consumer Financial Protection Agency he has proposed. He accused them of “using every bit of influence they have to maintain the status quo that has maximized their profits at the expense of American consumers, despite the fact that recently those same American consumers bailed them out as a consequence of the bad decisions that they made.” The financial bailout package cost taxpayers $700 billion.

In his address Saturday, Obama said small businesses have created nearly two-thirds of the nation’s new jobs over the past decade and a half. “They must be at the forefront of our recovery,” he said. This year’s $787 billion economic stimulus package made $5 billion in tax breaks available to small business and cut the costs of Small Business Administration loans, Obama said. Last week, he asked Congress to increase the size of some SBA loans and announced a plan to provide low interest loans to small banks that agree to lend more money to small businesses.

Crime Briefs Teenager charged with murder of girl

Lost keys lead to burglary suspects

ST. MARTINS, Mo. (AP) — Authorities have charged a 15-year-old with firstdegree murder for the death of 9-year-old girl in central Missouri. Cole County Juvenile Court Administrator Michael Couty said Saturday that the 15-year-old is being detained for the death of Elizabeth Olten. Police did not release the teen’s gender or name. Elizabeth’s body was found Friday — two days after she went missing — after the suspect led police to a wooded area near her home west of Jefferson City. Cole County Sheriff Greg White said Saturday that the girl was found in an area that had previously been searched but she had been “very well concealed.”

PATERSON, N.J. (AP) — Police in northern New Jersey nabbed three alleged burglars who fled an apartment with just $2 in change and left behind the keys to their getaway car. Authorities say the gun-toting men entered an apartment in Paterson early Friday, expecting to find loads of money. Realizing they targeted the wrong residence after they woke up a man who then fought with them, the men fled with just a 3-foot, beer bottle-shaped piggy bank containing the coins. Police soon arrived.

malnourished animals were found at her home. Iris Marie Hedrick was sentenced Friday to nine years in prison with all but nine months suspended. A judge also ordered the 40-year-old Hedrick to pay thousands of dollars in fines and restitution and ruled that she can never own or care for any type of animal. She pleaded guilty this summer to 16 misdemeanor counts. In return for the pleas, four felony charges were reduced. Authorities went to Hedrick’s home Jan. 2 in response to an anonymous tip and found dead or dying dogs, cats, birds, goats, rabbits, pigs, sheep and a cow.

Janitor charged in priest’s death Episcopalians distance selves By VICTOR EPSTEIN Associated Press Writer

MORRISTOWN, N.J. — A janitor was charged with murder Saturday in the slaying of a priest whose body was found in the rectory of his northern New Jersey church. Morris County Prosecutor Robert Bianchi said that Jose Feliciano, 64, stabbed and cut the Rev. Ed Hinds 32 times on Thursday after the pair argued. Bianchi would not provide further details about the argument. “Mr. Feliciano had gotten into an argument with the pastor at approximately 5 p.m. the night before,” Bianchi said. “It was during that altercation that the pastor was assaulted. Mr. Feliciano

grabbed a knife inside of the rectory and inflicted the multiple stab wounds that led to the unfortunate demise of the pastor.” The 61-year-old Hinds was in his clerical robes when he was killed while in the rectory kitchen of St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Chatham. Feliciano, who also Hinds faces weapons charges, had worked at the church for 17 years. He was arrested Saturday. Bianchi said investigators found the priest’s cell phone, bloody clothing and a bloody towel at Feliciano’s Easton,

Pennsylvania, home. Bianchi said Feliciano was one of two people who said they found the body, and drew the suspicion of investigators when he made a halfhearted attempt at CPR on Hinds. They also said Feliciano’s son graduated from the church’s school and that his daughter is a student there. The priest had wounds on his upper torso, the back of his body and his head that were created by a kitchen knife, officials said. Hinds also had defensive wounds on his hands and face, Bianchi said. An autopsy determined that the cause of death was severe trauma. Hinds’ body was found at about 8 a.m. Friday after he failed to show up for Mass.

Woman convicted in kidnap stunt AP Photo/Phil Coale

Search for Somer’s killer Crime scene investigators Friday bag evidence found in a vacant house Friday, Oct. 23, 2009 in Orange Park, Fla., near where Somer Thompson disappeared Monday. Somer was last seen alive walking along the sidewalk in front of a vacant house, and authorities said they’re searching for anyone who saw what happened to the 7-year-old after that. Investigators sifted through evidence from that vacant house and the Georgia landfill where her body was found Wednesday. An autopsy has been completed and investigators know how Somer died, but authorities won’t disclose their findings or any details about the body. At a vigil held outside the Thompsons’ home Friday night, Somer’s mother said she would not be able to see her daughter’s body. “They are going to give me a lock of her hair,” Diena Thompson said.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Nevada woman accused of snatching a child to spotlight what she called lax school security has been convicted of conspiracy to commit kidnapping and false imprisonment. Elaine Clermont was led from the courtroom in handcuffs after jurors announced their verdict Friday. Her 9-year-old daughter sobbed. Clermont of North Las Vegas had been on her own recognizance before trial. After the verdict, Clark County District Judge Doug Herndon set her bond at $10,000. She was not listed as being in

custody Saturday, according the Clark County Detention Center’s Web site. She could face up to six years in prison on the felony conspiracy charge and another year in custody for false imprisonment, a gross misdemeanor. Sentencing was set for Jan. 7. Clermont and Laurinda Drake were accused of abducting a 6-year-old boy from Mackey Elementary School in September 2008. Clermont called a television news outlet before contacting police and school officials, and waited an hour

to call the child’s parents, authorities said. The unharmed boy was surrendered at school district headquarters about 90 minutes after being taken. Drake was acquitted by a jury of similar charges in May. Clermont’s lawyer Mace Yampolsky said he would seek to have the verdict dismissed on grounds of insufficient evidence. He said he was “dumbfounded” by the different verdicts for the two women. Prosecutors were pleased with the jury’s verdict Friday.

from church MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (AP) — The Diocese of South Carolina has voted to distance itself but not completely split from the national Episcopal Church because of church positions on same-sex unions and ordination of gays. Canon Kendall Harmon says clergy members passed the resolution after a lengthy debate during a special convention Saturday in Mount Pleasant. Bishop Mark Lawrence has said the diocese does not want a split but a discussion with the national church on issues that have prompted some dioceses and parishes to leave. In 2003, the national church consecrated its first openly gay bishop and last summer, at its national convention, authorized bishops to bless same-sex unions. The Diocese of South Carolina is one of two in the state and has about 30,000 members.

Egyptians conflicted over preserving Jewish past By HADEEL AL-SHALCHI and MATTI FRIEDMAN Associated Press Writers

CAIRO (AP) — The warren of slum alleys is called the Jews’ Quarter, but no Jews live there. The ancient synagogue still stands, but its roof is gone. The government is renovating it, but is doing so at a moment when antiIsrael feeling is running especially high in Egypt. The Ben Maimon synagogue exemplifies this country’s conflicted relationship with its Jewish past. The Jewish community that once flourished in the Arab world’s most populous nation left behind physical traces ranging from grand temples in central Cairo and Alexandria to a holy man’s humble grave in a Nile Delta village. But the modern-day Egyptian view of those relics lies within a narrow spectrum ranging from disinterest to outright hostility. On a recent morning, teenage workers were busy lugging planks across what was once the Ben Maimon synagogue’s sanctuary and pumping out greenish water flooding the dirt floor of an adjacent room. The bimah, the lectern where the Torah scroll was once read, was visible under plastic sheeting, and a niche in the wall facing toward Jerusalem was all that remained of the elaborate wooden ark that held the scrolls. Not everyone was pleased about the renovation. “We are a nation that doesn’t have enough to

But the modernday Egyptian view of those relics lies within a narrow spectrum ranging from disinterest to outright hostility. eat and doesn’t have clean water,� grumbled Mahmoud Fahim, a Muslim who runs a clothing store in the Jews’ Quarter. “Why are we paying for these temples to be developed?� He called it “a superficial act to make Egypt look good to the West and to Israel.� Fahim was touching on a sore point — the failed bid last month by Farouk Hosny, the Egyptian culture minister, to be elected head of UNESCO, the U.N. culture agency. The minister blamed his defeat on a Jewish conspiracy “cooked up in New York.� Egypt was the first Arab country to sign a peace treaty with Israel. Though the peace has always been

cool, the relationship is going through an especially rough patch because of the aftermath of Israel’s bloody offensive in Gaza, compounded by the UNESCO affair and Hosny’s remarks. Egypt’s Jewish community, which dates back millennia and in the 1940s numbered around 80,000, is down to several dozen, almost all of them elderly. The rest were driven out decades ago by mob violence and state-sponsored persecution tied in large part to the Israeli-Arab conflict, a story repeated across the Arab world. Egypt and Israel fought a war every decade from the 1940s to the 1970s until the 1979 peace treaty

was signed. Despite that treaty, Egyptian sentiment remains deeply unfriendly to Israel, and anti-Semitic stereotypes still occasionally appear in the Egyptian media. Some government officials take a more tolerant line. “Jewish sites are an important part of our heritage, and we place as much importance on the maintenance and development of the Jewish temples as we do to the mosques and the churches in Egypt,� said Zahi Hawass, Egypt’s chief archaeologist and the official responsible for fixing up the synagogue. The repairs got under way at around the same

World Briefs Last Titanic survivor’s ashes scattered at dock LONDON (AP) — The ashes of the last Titanic survivor have been scattered at the English port where the ship began its ill-fated maiden voyage in 1912. Millvina Dean, who was 9 weeks old when her parents took her aboard the ship, died May 31 at age 97. Her ashes were scatted on Saturday by her partner, Bruno Nordmanis, on the water at Southampton Docks in southern England. About 150 people including members of the British Titanic Society and friends of Dean gathered for the ceremony. David Hill, of the British Titanic Society, said Dean “was a lovely lady, and anyone who met her would say exactly the same.�

Lebanese court convicts men of al-Qaida links BEIRUT (AP) — A Lebanese court convicted 11 men of having links to al-Qaida and carrying out terrorist acts, and sentenced them to life in prison, a court official said Saturday. The men — six Palestinians, three Lebanese and two Syrians — were tried in absentia since they are still on the run, said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media. The men were convicted Friday of transporting fighters from Lebanon into Iraq and from Syria into Lebanon to carry out attacks, said the official. They were also found guilty of forming an armed gang with the intent to carry out terror attacks, forging government documents and giving shelter

to wanted people. On Tuesday, a Lebanese investigating judge indicted 21 members of an al-Qaida-inspired militant group, Fatah al-Islam, for a bombing in northern Lebanon last year that killed 18 people, mostly soldiers.

Malaysia baby born on plane to go home healthy KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — A Malaysian woman who gave premature birth aboard a plane said Saturday that doctors are expected to release her son from a hospital Monday or Tuesday. Liew Siaw Hsia had been flying home Wednesday after quitting her job as a waitress when she started having labor pains. A doctor on the flight helped her deliver while the plane was still 2,000 feet (600 meters) in the air. She and the airline said she had been 27 weeks pregnant, 11 weeks short of the full term. The airline, AirAsia, said it would give Liew and her child free flights for life. Liew told The Associated Press that doctors at

a hospital outside Kuala Lumpur have told her they do not expect any health complications and she can take her baby home Monday or Tuesday. She said her boy’s current weight was about seven pounds.

Ghanaian cardinal to head Vatican’s peace office VATICAN CITY (AP) — The pope has appointed Ghanaian Cardinal Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson to head the Vatican’s justice and peace office. The high-profile job cements Turkson’s position as a possible future papal candidate. The office is responsible for promoting the Church’s social teachings on justice issues, such as war, the death penalty and human rights. Turkson was informed of the nomination at a news conference Saturday concluding a three-week Vatican meeting on the role of the Catholic Church in Africa. The 61-year-old archbishop of Cape Coast replaces Italian Cardinal Renato Martino, who is retiring. Turkson told reporters three weeks ago that

U.S. military base in Romania to become permanent BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — A U.S. army official in Romania says an American military base near the Black Sea port of Constanta will become a permanent facility in the spring and be jointly used with Romanian forces. Lt. Col. Daniel Herrigstad says the U.S. government invested $48 million to modernize the base. Herrigstad told the news agency Agerpres on Friday that the base would initially host up to 1,700 U.S. and Romanian soldiers. Vice President Joe Biden visited Romania on Thursday to discuss the new missile defense system, and thanked Romania’s President Traian Basescu for “embracing� the new proposal.

time that Egypt started lobbying for Hosny to get the UNESCO job. Some suggested the renovation was an attempt to improve the image of an official whose candidacy to become the face of cultural preservation worldwide was complicated by his 2008 statement to Egypt’s parliament threatening to personally burn Israeli books. Hosny apologized for that statement and Israel dropped its opposition to his election, but he ended up losing all the same, to a Bulgarian diplomat, whereupon he blamed Jewish pressure. “It is the Israelis who caused Farouk Hosny to lose the bid in UNESCO, so I don’t know why he tries to please them by developing their temples,� said Sayed el-Iraqi, who runs a toy store near the synagogue. Hawass, the antiquities official, said the renovation was never connected to the UNESCO bid and would continue. Jewish sites exist in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, still home to a grand synagogue, and in the Nile Delta village of Nekraha, where Jewish worshippers make a yearly pilgrimage to the grave of Abu Hatzira, a 19th century rabbi and healer. Most sites, however, are in the capital, and more than monuments just to the Jews, they are reminders of a more cosmopolitan Middle East, when Cairo and other Arab cities housed a jumble of ethnic minorities in the midst of Muslim majorities.

Ezra, located among Christian churches and souvenir stores. The synagogue, with its marble pillars and ceiling painted in muted greens and reds, is believed to date to 882 A.D. The thousands of documents the Jews stored there over the centuries were discovered in the late 1800s and became famous as the Cairo Genizah, one of the most valuable troves of historical documents ever found. Today the defunct house of prayer is open as a tourist site. A man stands in front of a dusty glass case at the back, offering yarmulkes and postcards for sale. On a downtown Cairo street stands the monumental synagogue known as Shaar Hashamayim, the “gate of heaven,� a structure of gray stone with an interior of carpets and gold-painted walls. Sidewalk barricades and a dozen armed policemen give it the appearance of a besieged fortress. In the 1940s, upperclass Jews would fill its pews on the Sabbath. On a recent Sabbath it was empty except for a Muslim caretaker. Nadia Haroun Silvera, 55, a lawyer and one of Egypt’s last Jews, remembers her grandmother leading her in as a child. She said no guards were needed then. “They should take care of all the Jewish synagogues. It’s a part of Egyptian history,� she said.

Army captures Pakistani Taliban leader’s hometown By ASIF SHAHZAD Associated Press Writer

ISLAMABAD (AP) — Soldiers captured the strategically located hometown of Pakistan’s Taliban chief Saturday after fierce fighting, officials said, the army’s first major prize as it pushes deeper into a militant stronghold along the Afghan border. A suspected U.S. missile killed 22 people elsewhere in the northwest, but apparently missed a top Taliban figure, authorities said. Pakistan’s eight-day-old offensive in the Taliban and al-Qaida stronghold of South Waziristan is considered its most critical test yet in the campaign to stop the spread of violent Islamist extremism in this nuclear-armed, U.S.-allied country. The army operation has prompted a wave of retaliatory attacks by militants this month that have killed some 200 people. The battle for Kotkai town took several days and involved aerial bombardment as soldiers captured heights around the town. Army spokesman Maj. Gen. Athar Abbas said troops were now ridding the town of land mines and

roadside bombs planted by the insurgents. Kotkai is symbolically important because it is the hometown of Pakistani Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud and one of his top deputies, Qari Hussain. It also lies along the way to the major militant base of Sararogha, making it a strategically helpful catch. Pakistan is under intense international pressure to clear its tribal areas of insurgents, many of whom are blamed for attacks on U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan. The government has pressed ahead in South Waziristan despite a wave of violence that has put the nation on edge. Bombings on Friday alone killed 24 people, including 17 headed to a wedding. The army said Saturday that three more soldiers had died, putting the army’s death toll at 23, and 21 more militants had been killed, putting their overall death toll at 163. The U.S. has launched scores of missile strikes at militant targets in the tribal belt over the past year, killing several top militants including former Pakistani Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud. The latest strike hit Chuhatra

Strong quake hits eastern Indonesia, causes panic JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — A powerful earthquake struck deep under the sea in eastern Indonesia on Saturday, causing panic and sending residents running out of their homes, officials and witnesses said. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. The quake had a preliminary magnitude of 7.0, but at a depth of 86 miles was too far below the earth’s surface to cause a tsunami, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said. Saturday’s quake came as Indonesia is still recovering from a devastating earthquake last month that killed more than 1,000 people on western Sumatra. The U.S. Geological Survey says Saturday’s

quake — the second strong temblor in two days — was located 225 miles southeast of Ambon in the Maluku islands in the Banda Sea. The shaking was strong and people ran to higher ground fearing a tsunami, said Ian Kotualubun, an official with Indonesia’s Meteorology and Geophysics Agency in Saumlaki, the area closest to the epicenter, about 1,700 miles east of the capital, Jakarta. Indonesia sits above a series of fault lines that make the vast island nation one of the most earthquakeprone places in the world. A massive quake off the coast of Indonesia’s Aceh province caused the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami that killed 230,000 people, half of the victims on Sumatra island.

village in the tribal region of Bajur, local government official Mohammad Jamil said. The missile hit a hideout of the militants that included a tunnel. The target appeared to be Faqir Mohammad, a prominent Taliban leader, but he is believed to have escaped, Jamil said. Most of the 22 killed were Afghan nationals, he said. Pakistan formally protests the missile strikes, saying they violate its sovereignty and raise sympathy for the Taliban, while the U.S. rarely discusses the attacks. Analysts believe the two sides have a secret deal allowing the strikes.

Affidavit: Mom said balloon saga was hoax Pilot who overshot airport By DAN ELLIOTT Associated Press Writer

DENVER (AP) — The mother of the 6-year-old boy once feared missing inside a runaway helium balloon told Colorado sheriff’s deputies that the whole saga was a hoax, according to court documents. Mayumi Heene admitted to deputies that she and her husband Richard “knew all along that Falcon was hiding in the residence” in Fort Collins, according to an affidavit used to get a search warrant for the home. She allegedly told

N.C. family of 5 survives when SUV struck by train FAYETTEVILLE (AP) — Authorities say two people in North Carolina were injured after their sports utility vehicle got stuck on the tracks and was hit by a passenger train. Multiple media outlets reported Saturday that five people were inside the SUV when it got stuck on the tracks in a construction zone in Fayetteville. Four people had gotten out and were trying to move the vehicle when the Amtrak Train hit it at about 9:30 p.m. Friday. The train dragged the vehicle about 350 feet down the tracks before stopping. Authorities say 15-yearold girl still inside the SUV suffered minor injuries. The teen’s mother broke several ribs and was taken to a hospital. No one on the train was injured.

She and Richard had instructed their three children to lie to authorities as well as the media regarding this hoax,” the affidavit released Friday said. Richard Heene has denied a hoax. His lawyer, David Lane, said Friday he is waiting to see the evidence in the case. Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden has said he

Write-ins usually solve the problem, but Pinion says Spencer Mountain’s charter keeps incumbents in office until new officials are elected, so the seats won’t be empty. There are 29 registered voters in Spencer Mountain.

will recommend charges against the Heenes including conspiracy, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, making a false report to authorities, and attempting to influence a public servant. The most serious charges are felonies and carry a maximum sentence of six years in prison. Alderden said authorities also would be seeking restitution for the costs of the balloon chase, though he didn’t provide a figure. His office has said it will likely be next week before it forwards its findings to prosecutors to decide on charges.

denies crew was napping By BRAD CAIN STEVE KARNOWSKI Associated Press Writers and

MINNEAPOLIS — The first officer of the Northwest Airlines jet that missed its destination by 150 miles says there was no disagreement in the cockpit, neither he nor the captain was napping and the passengers were never in any danger. But in an interview with The Associated Press two days after he and a colleague blew past their destination as air traffic controllers tried frantically to reach them, pilot Richard Cole would not News Briefs say just what it was that led to them to forget to land 75 months in prison to be Flight 188. followed by 36 months of Air traffic controllers and supervised release.

Northwest’s Flight 188 includes just the last 30 minutes — only the very end of Wednesday night’s flight after the pilots realized their error over Wisconsin and were heading back to Minneapolis. Cole would not discuss why it took so long for the pilots to respond to radio calls, “but I can tell you that airplanes lose contact with the ground people all the time. It happens. Sometimes they get together right away; sometimes it takes awhile before one or the other notices that they are not in contact.” A police report released Friday said the pilots passed breathalyzer tests and were apologetic after the flight. Cheney and Cole had just started their work week and were coming off a 19-hour layover, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported Saturday, citing an internal Northwest document it said was described to the newspaper. The police report said that the crew indicated they had been having a heated discussion about airline policy. But aviation safety experts and other pilots were deeply skeptical they could have become so distracted by shop talk that they forgot to land an airplane carrying 144 passengers. The most likely possibility, they said, is that the pilots simply fell asleep somewhere along their route

from San Diego. Cheney and Cole have been suspended and are to be interviewed by National Transportation Safety Board investigators. The airline, acquired last year by Delta Air Lines, is also investigating. With worries about terrorists still high, even after contact was re-established, air traffic controllers asked the crew to prove who they were by executing turns. Audio from the cockpit voice recorder was downloaded at NTSB headquarters on Friday, Holloway said, adding that investigators may have more information about the content on Monday. During the flight, the pilots were finally alerted to their situation when a flight attendant called on an intercom from the cabin. Officials said a special concern was that the many safety checks built into the aviation system to prevent incidents like this one — or to correct them quickly — apparently were ineffective until the very end. Not only couldn’t air traffic controllers and other pilots raise the Northwest pilots for an hour, but the airline’s dispatcher should have been trying to reach them as well. The three flight attendants onboard should have questioned why there were no preparations for landing being made.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT Information from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control)

2009 H1N1 and Seasonal Flu: What To Do If You Get Sick How do I know if I have the flu? You may have the flu if you have some or all of these symptoms: • runny or stuffy nose • chills • fever (not everyone) • body aches • cough • fatigue • headache • sore throat • sometimes diarrhea and vomiting

What should I do if I get sick? If you get sick with flu-like symptoms this flu season, you should stay home and avoid contact with other people except to get medical care. Most people with 2009 H1N1 have had mild illness and have not needed medical care or antiviral drugs and the same is true of seasonal flu. However, some people are more likely to get flu complications and they should talk to a health care provider about whether they need to be examined if they get flu symptoms this season. They are: • Children younger than 5, but especially children younger than 2 years old • People 65 and older • Pregnant women • People who have: • Cancer • Neurological disorders • Diabetes • Blood disorders (including sickle cell disease) • Heart disease • Chronic lung disease (including asthma or COPD) • Kidney disorders • Neuromuscular disorders (including MD & MS) • Liver disorders • Weakened immune systems (including people with AIDS) Do I need to go the emergency room if I am only a little sick? No. The emergency room should be used for people who are very sick. You should not go to the emergency room if you are only mildly ill. If you have the emergency warning signs of flu sickness, you should go to the emergency room. If you get sick with flu symptoms and are at high risk of flu complications or you are concerned about your illness, call your health care provider for advice. If you go to the emergency room and you are not sick with the flu, you may catch it from people who do have it. How long should I stay home if I’m sick? CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other things you have to do and no one else can do for you. (Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine, such as Tylenol®.) You should stay home from work, school, travel, shopping, social events, and public gatherings. Are there medicines to treat 2009 H1N1? Yes. There are drugs your doctor may prescribe for treating both seasonal and 2009 H1N1 called “antivi¬rals.” These drugs can make you better faster and may also prevent serious complications. This flu season, antiviral drugs are being used mainly to treat people who are very sick, such as people who need to be hospitalized, and to treat sick people who are more likely to get serious flu complications. Your health care provider will decide whether antiviral drugs are needed to treat your illness. Remember, most people with 2009 H1N1 have had mild illness and have not needed medical care or antiviral drugs and the same is true of seasonal flu. What should I do while I’m sick? Stay away from others as much as possible to keep from making them sick. If you must leave home, for example to get medical care, wear a facemask if you have one, or cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue. And wash your hands often to keep from spreading flu to others. CDC has information on “Taking Care of a Sick Person in Your Home” on its website. For more information, visit www.cdc.gov or www.flu.gov or call 1-800-CDC-INFO. This PSA Brought to You

United Way kicks off fall campaign Goal $215,000; donations help 18 agencies By JAMES EDWARDS Daily Dispatch Publisher

Apparently coins really do make a difference. And so do dollars. The United Way of Vance County kicked off its 2009 fall campaign with a hamburger and hot dog cookout at its new location and a “Coins Make a Difference” fundraising drive for motorists at the intersection of Garnett Street and Dabney Drive. More than $2,200 was raised at both events on Friday, bringing the United Way’s total collections to more than $23,800 in this year’s campaign. Henderson Mayor Pete O’Geary and Vance County Board of Commissioners Chairman Dan Brummitt joined members of the board of directors of the local United Way, the staff, and agency representatives in officially kicking off this year’s drive to raise $215,000. Also helping to launch the campaign were Bill Edwards, president of the Henderson-Vance Chamber of Commerce; John Suther, treasurer for the United Way board; and James Edwards, this year’s campaign chairman. With Friday’s kickoff, the United Way took a lead from the school children of Vance County, campaign organizers said. “The children of our community raised more than $6,000 in coins for United Way last year by getting excited about helping others,” said Edwards. “Local citizens are being

Chris Kingsberry, right, of Autozone on Dabney Drive prepares to drop money into one of the United Way of Vance County’s coin collection boxes used Friday for the annual campaign kickoff. Accepting the donation is John Suther, treasurer for the local United Way. The kickoff netted donations of $2,208 bringing the total funds raised thus far this year to $23,847, more than one-tenth of the way towards a fundraising goal of $215,000 to support the 18 agencies United Way serves. encouraged to bring their coins to the United Way in a ‘Coins Make a Difference’ campaign similar to what the school kids did last year,” he said. “We believe we will find that by ‘digging deep’ into our pockets – or the cushions of our recliners – we can secure the funds necessary to meet the needs for assistance in the coming year in our community.” The United Way is asking local businesses to grant permission to run a campaign with the employees of their business. Critical also to the success of the campaign, Edwards said, are those companies who prefer to give a corporate gift on behalf of

employees. Businesses are also being asked to run a “Coins Make a Difference” drive within their companies, too, in order to give more people an opportunity to help those in need of United Way agency services in our area.

Daily Meditation These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. Proverbs 6:16-19

Our Opinion

What the ‘Wild Things’ teach Maurice Sendak’s children’s book “Where the Wild Things Are” must be one of the literary world’s least-wordy classics. The 1963 book which has sold more than 19 million copies tells the story of Max, a little boy with a temper who is banished to his room. After escaping to a fantasy world filled with “wild things” — monsters that represent his own emotions — Max eventually finds himself lonely and returns to his bedroom, finding his supper waiting, still warm. A feature-length film adaptation of the book by director Spike Jonze, with Sendak as one of the producers, was the No. 1 movie in America last week. But it has raised concerns among some parents that the content is too frightening or dark for children. Often at the heart of the debate is this distinction: The 2009 movie is not particularly a children’s film; rather, it is a film for adults about being a child. We’ve seen the movie and found it neither too scary nor too brooding for most children. Granted, the “wild things” in the film are frequently unhappy. Each has his or her own sometimes-undesirable personality traits that mirror Max’s own. Their interactions are sometimes gleeful, at other times quite unpleasant. Max becomes king of the “wild things” by making a promise he can’t keep; the child tells them his powers include a “sadness shield to keep out all the sadness, and it’s big enough for all of us.” Later, Max designs a fortress which he says will fulfill “wild thing” Carroll’s desire for “a place where only the things you want to happen, would happen.” Of course we as adults know that neither of these utopian dreams can exist, a valuable lesson for children and one that is hard to teach with a film in which everyone is always happy and nothing ever goes wrong. In Sendak’s own words from an interview long ago, the author said that “Wild Things” and two other books from the trilogy sought to portray “how children master various feelings.” Anyone who has been a raised a child — or who has been one — surely knows that such mastery comes from experiencing, not being protected from, the darker side of their own feelings, and realizing that there can be light on the other side. In the film, Max comes to terms with the fact that he cannot be king of the wild things; that both they and he need something a 9-year-old boy can’t provide. As he departs, Max tells the monsters that he wishes they all had a mother. Then he sails away to be welcomed home with open arms — and warm supper — by his own. And that doesn’t seem such a bad theme for a children’s movie at all.

Quotable “All I’m saying is we were not asleep; we were not having a fight; there was nothing serious going on in the cockpit that would threaten the people in the back at all. … It was not a serious event, from a safety issue. I can’t go into it, but it was innocuous.” — First officer Richard Cole, one of the pilots of a Northwest Airlines jet that missed its intended destination of Minneapolis by 150 miles. “He was just a magnificent man. Everybody loved him.” — Jeannette Miller, cousin of the Rev. Ed Hinds, who was slain in the rectory of his New Jersey church.

A fun-free Halloween This column was originally published Oct. 27, 2002. Gather ’round, boys and girls, because today Uncle Dave is going to tell you how to have some real “old-fashioned” Halloween fun! Start by gathering these materials: a commercial air compressor, an acetylene torch, a marine flare gun and 200 pounds of boiled pig brains. Next, select a neighbor who ... Whoops! Scratch that, boys and girls! Uncle Dave did not realize that your parents were also reading this column. Ha ha! Hi there, Mom and Dad! Uncle Dave was just having a flashback to the Halloweens of his boyhood, an innocent time when parents were far more relaxed and clueless about what their kids were up to. “You kids have fun, and be home by Thanksgiving!” our parents would call to us on Halloween night, as we staggered out the front door, weighed down by hundreds of pounds of concealed vandalism supplies, including enough raw eggs to feed Somalia for decades. By morning, thanks to our efforts, the entire neighborhood would be covered with a layer of congealed shaving cream and toilet paper that, around certain unpopular neighbors’ homes, was hundreds of feet thick. This is how the Appalachian Mountains were formed. Yes, boys and girls, Uncle Dave and his chums sure had a lot of fun on Halloween! And when Uncle Dave says “a lot of fun,” he means, “a very unsafe time.” Because it turns out that we were violating many Halloween safety rules. In those days, we did not know about the importance of Halloween

safety, because the Internet did not exist, at least not the way it is today. Back then, the entire Internet consisted of two slow, boxcar-sized UNIVAC computers about 50 feet apart, connected by a wire. It would take one of these computers Dave an entire day to send an Barry e-mail to the Tribune Media other one, Services which would immediately delete it, because it was a Viagra ad. Thanks to technological progress, we have access to much more information today, so we understand how hideously dangerous pretty much everything is, especially Halloween. Uncle Dave looked up “Halloween Safety” on the Internet, and he found a Web site established by the National Safety Council, at http://www.crimemuseum. org/documents/Halloween%20 Safety%20Tips On this site, you parents will find numerous tips to ensure that your children have a safe Halloween. For your convenience, Uncle Dave has boiled these tips down to five: 1. Never allow your children outside on Halloween night. 2. Or in the daytime, either. 3. Your children should spend Halloween locked inside a windowless room, sedated and wrapped from head to toe in reflective tape. 4. If, God forbid, some neighbor, somehow, manages to actually give one of your children

Letters Feral cats are God’s creatures, too To the editor: Everyone knows someone who has taken in, fed or felt compassion for a stray or feral cat. It is not their fault they were born into the world that way. We should concentrate our energy toward the causes and contributing factors creating the rising number of Feral Cats. Some people simple do not have the means to spay or neuter their pets or the vision to see the importance of doing so. Next thing you know, it’s too late; they’ve populated! People need to act more responsibly. If the word was spread of the importance of spaying/neutering pets we could all do our part in helping to counteract the growing population of feral cats. In the meantime, we should respect feral cats. Like other animals, they share our environment with us in ways we don’t think of and balance the population of mice, rats, snakes, etc. Let us perceive them as friends, not the enemy. Karin Kwiatkowski, Henderson Editor’s Note: National Feral Cat Day was Friday, Oct. 16.

People do make a difference To the editor:

a treat, you must immediately snatch it away and destroy it with a flamethrower. 5. Never use a flamethrower while sleeping. Uncle Dave’s point is that Halloween is not the carefree holiday that it once was. These days, nobody goes outside on Halloween night except teenagers, which Uncle Dave--believe it or not!--used to be one of, although he now finds them terrifying. But does that mean that youngsters can no longer have fun on Halloween? Yes! No, wait, Uncle Dave means: No! There are plenty of Halloween activities that are both fun AND safe. For example, there is: CARVING THE PUMPKIN. This is a Halloween tradition that began in the British Isles, where one magical night several centuries ago, a group of people decided to put a lit candle inside a hollowed-out pumpkin, to symbolize the fact that they had been hitting the sauce pretty hard. Today, pumpkin-carving is an activity that the whole family can enjoy, except for Dad, who gets stuck with the job of actually carving the pumpkin, which means he has to stick his hand inside and grasp the pumpkin slime, knowing that at any moment he might encounter the North American Gourd-Dwelling Scorpion, whose toxic sting claims more American lives each year than cellular phones and asteroids combined. The best way to avoid this danger, advises the American Pumpkin Growers Council, is to make sure you buy a pumpkin “that costs a lot of money.” You’ll have to excuse Uncle Dave now, because he has a batch of pig brains on the stove. to the

What’s Perdue up to? To the editor:

There is much said about division in our community. I want to say something about the unity. In my position I have firsthand knowledge of the generous, giving people of all faiths and political ideals who are united in their actions. When ACTS held its first plate sale, there was not one sour face or conflict of purpose. It felt as if the real spirit of faith and hope was alive and electric. My friend jokingly remarked that all the Baptists, Methodists and Presbyterians were in harmony for a purpose. The people who made this event happen, starting with Donald Sanford, and ending up at the Presbyterian Church on that perfect Friday, with volunteers and customers pouring in, will be blessed for their gifts to the community. I believe I hugged as many of you as possible at the time, but this is my group hug. Thank you for showing you can make a big difference!

In 1980, the fast food chain Wendy’s created an ad touting their “fluffy bun,” when one little ole crochety lady, Clara Peller, asked the question that has become a part of America’s lexicon of any thing that was anticipated and expected that didn’t live up to expectations in the expression: “Where’s the Beef?” Thus, I’m inclined to ask the News & Observer, “Where’s the Beef?” after publishing a photo of the state governor before a microphone with a “Hickory Metro Convention” sign, and partial logo of the NAACP in the foreground, and three unidentified panelists with only the Rev. William Barber identified. I would like to know: “Where’s the Speech?” The headline of the story was “Perdue speaks at NAACP’s 100th Anniversary.” Where are excerpts from her speech? Is there a relationship between Hickory Metro Convention and the NAACP. If so, what? How far away is Hickory, N.C.?

Politicians often like to invoke the term “fuzzy math” when it comes to criticizing their opponents’ tax or spending policies. Perhaps none of the previous references to fuzzy math come close to the state of North Carolina’s decision to release 20 prisoners — all given life sentences — after being in prison for fewer than 40 years. In this instance, government has utterly failed at doing its most basic task enshrined in our nation’s founding document, the Declaration of Independence. That document declares that governments are instituted to secure our rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These 20 prisoners, most of whom violated the “unalienable rights” of Americans by murdering or raping them, deserved their life sentences. Now our courts using fuzzy math apparently precipitated by various state laws are to be set free by month’s end. Back in the 1970s, when these criminals were first put behind bars, a life sentence was defined as 80 years. One could have concluded that if prisoners stayed behind bars for 80 years, they would be in their late 90s or older when released and would not be all that likely to commit another violent crime. But somewhere along the way, that 80 years got halved to 40 years. And under older rules of good time and gain time, which is supposed to reward prisoners who behave themselves, these murders and rapists are now eligible to be put back on the street. Those eligible for release on Oct. 29 include: • Steven C. Wilson, 52, who was sentenced to life in a Lenoir County court in 1978 for the 1970s abduction and rape of a 9-yearold girl. • Alford Jones, 55, convicted of first-degree murder in Lenoir County in 1976 for shooting a man during a robbery attempt. • Bobby Bowden, 60, who according to an Associated Press report has had 17 infractions in prison, including two for weapons possession, one for damaging property and others for disobeying orders. He’s serving two concurrent “life” sentences for the murders of Larry Lovett and Normal Christman Ehrhart in Cumberland County on Aug. 7, 1975. • John M. Montgomery, 58, who raped a 15-yearold girl in Forsyth County back in the 1970s after he escaped from prison. These folks aren’t being released because they’ve been reformed or are model prisoners. In fact, The Associated Press reports that they’ve racked up more than 250 infractions while in prison for fighting, weapons possession and theft. They aren’t old and frail and they’re not being released for compassionate reasons so they can live out their remaining days with their families. Many of these people will be living in neighborhoods across the state. Some will have to register as sex offenders, if that’s any comfort to anyone. Our leaders in Raleigh need to put their best legal minds together and figure out a way to prevent this from happening again. Life sentences should mean life sentences. Meanwhile, those same leaders should understand that this will only increase the cynicism that North Carolinians have about their government. — The Free Press of Kinston

LETTERS, from page twelve Hey! I know I could look it up on a map, but I shouldn’t have to. People who elected her to office want to know; just like we want to know about Obama: What she’s doing, what she says, how’s she spending her time and the taxpayers’ money? Daniel A. Young Sr., Henderson

Whom do you worship? To the editor: I recently received an e-mail that I had seen at least once before. This time I really dug into it. It was about a Virginia preacher. He referenced Genesis 47:1326. I believe it was a very moving sermon. They say there is nothing new under the sun. The verses talk about the famine in Egypt. The Egyptians

were having a hard time. The people surrendered all their money for bread. When the bread ran out, they returned for more. Since their money was gone, this time they surrendered their livestock. This held them for a year. Then they were back for more. Verse 19 says, “Why should we die before your eyes, both we and our land? Buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants of Pharaoh; give us seed, that we may live and not die, that the land may not be desolate.” NKJV They willingly gave up everything to be taken care of. Now Pharaoh owned almost all the land and people of Egypt. They were given seed and 20 percent of every harvest belonged to Pharaoh. The first income tax. Now think about that for a minute. The Egyptians believed Pharaoh to be a

god. They looked to him to take care of them. They considered him to be the one who could help them when they were in need. What did they get for their faith in Pharaoh? They gave up their money, livestock, land, and freedom. In verse 25, the Egyptians say, “… and we will be Pharaoh’s servants.” So they were now essentially slaves. Pharaoh’s power was now absolute. Jump to today. Too many of our people put their faith in government. They rely on government and are more than happy to accept “free” money. Most never realize that the money they accept comes from the pockets of their fellow citizens. Recently in Detroit, stimulus money was available for a homelessness prevention program. (How this was to stimulate the economy is a whole other topic.) When the people lined up to receive

help were asked where the money came from, the sad truth revealed itself. Once they got to President Obama, they were asked where he got the money. One woman did not know, another said he got it from his “stash.” Government has become the new false god and its worshippers are just as bad off as Pharaoh’s worshippers from the Bible. The Israelites worshipped the one true God and verse 27 says that they grew and multiplied exceedingly. Our nation was founded on the principles of the true God and that is why we “grew and multiplied exceedingly.” Now our nation is constantly telling God He is not wanted here. Our dollar loses value every day and our unemployment is on the edge of 10 percent. History repeats itself. Rory Richardson, Chairman Warren County GOP

Healthy Moment

Skin Cancers Are Common on the Face Skin cancers are usually easy to find. They are right on your face. The areas that catch the most sun--the lips, cheeks, and nose--are the most likely areas to develop a cancer. These cancers are called basal cell cancers and are slow-growing. They grow so slowly that a person often ignores them assuming that they are only a chronic irritation. However, any skin ulcer that lasts more than a few weeks should be checked by your doctor. It is wise to remove these cancers early. Although they do not commonly spread like other cancers, they can damage deeper tissues in the nose, ears or around the eyes which will result in scarring and poorer cosmetic results. There are a few different ways to remove these cancers. Often they are simply cut out and the skin sewed together. This will leave a small scar. A scar can usually be avoided by using a more complex microsurgical technique and cautery. For precancerous skin changes, treatments that destroy the abnormal cells are quite successful. This can be done by freezing the skin with liquid nitrogen or with a lotion containing a chemotherapeutic medicine. You can reduce the sun’s damage to the skin and risk of skin cancers by protecting it with sunscreens, broad-brimmed hats and avoiding the outdoors during the peak hours of ultraviolet exposure. The damage from sun exposure accumulates over the years, so you should start using these protective measures at an early age.

Do I need to go to the emergency room if I am only a little sick? No. The emergency room should be used for people who are very sick. You should not go to the emergency room if you are only mildly ill. If you get sick with flu symptoms and are at high risk of flu complications or you are concerned about your illness, call your health care provider for advice. The best way to avoid catching the flu is to use good flu hygiene – remember to cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze, wash your hands frequently and avoid close contact with those who have cold and flu-like symptoms.

Lewis leads Devils past Maryland By JOEDY McCREARY AP Sports Writer

DURHAM — Thaddeus Lewis has been carrying Duke lately. This time, it was the defense’s turn to bail out the Blue Devils. Lewis threw for 371 yards and two touchdowns and Duke forced two late turnovers to wrap up a 17-13 victory over Maryland on Saturday. The Atlantic Coast Conference’s leading passer was 30 of 43 with touchdowns covering 24 yards to Donovan Varner and 1 yard to Danny Parker in his third straight 300-yard performance for the Blue Devils (4-3, 2-1). Duke never trailed, outgained Maryland 394-249, withstood the Terrapins’ late charges and held on for the Blue Devils’ third win in four games. They also claimed consecutive conference victories for the first time since 1994. “It isn’t about picking them up — we know we’re going to face adversity at times during the game, but it’s just about rebounding, coming back,” linebacker Damian Thornton said. “The offense knows what the deal is. They get our back whenever we’re down. We get their back. It’s about being a team.” More than one-fourth of Maryland’s offense came on one play — Chris Turner’s 67-yard touchdown pass to Davin Meggett. Turner was 16 of 23 for 182 yards and moved past Boomer Esiason into second place on the school’s career passing list. But Turner couldn’t keep the Terps (2-6, 1-3) from losing their third Please see DUKE, page 3B

Terrence Cody, the Crimson Tide’s 350-pound nose guard, blocked a 44-yard field-goal attempt on the final play and No. 1 Alabama escaped with a 12-10 victory over the rival Volunteers on Saturday. Cody broke through the line on the last play and practically ran into Daniel Lincoln’s low kick. Relieved Alabama fans chanted “Cody” as the All-American ambled toward the locker room. It was Cody’s second blocked field goal of the fourth quarter. Leigh Tiffin booted four field goals — including a 50-yarder and a 49-yarder — to provide all Alabama’s offense and the Tide (8-0, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) survived Mark Ingram’s first college fumble and some problems for the nation’s top defense.

Tennessee (3-4, 1-3) kept alive its hopes for coach Lane Kiffin’s first huge victory with Eric Berry’s fumble recovery and Jonathan Crompton’s 11-yard touchdown pass to Gerald Jones with 1:19 left. Then Tennessee’s Denarius Moore recovered the onside kick at the Vols’ 41 with no time outs remaining. Crompton hit Jones on a 14-yarder before Tennessee was pushed back by a false start. On second down, the much-maligned Crompton hit Luke Stocker for a 23-yard gain to get the Vols into position for the potential gamewinning kick. But Cody and the Tide made a big push, and Alabama still controls its destiny in the national title race. Tiffin’s 49-yarder with 6:31 left had barely cleared the uprights for the 12-3 lead and, it turns out, the decisive points. That came after Cody batted Lincoln’s 43-yard field goal atPlease see BAMA, page 3B

Susan and I had a ball last Saturday night at the Bank of America 500 in Charlotte. Our seats were right on the start/ finish line alongside many race fans that had been attending the race in the same seats for decades. The gentleman behind us said he had been sitting in that seat at each race since 1964. The way it works is each year people who have attended races in previous years get priority on buying newly available seats based on how long they have Walt attended. Bowen Over time, if you go On the Water every year, Weekly you move up to better and better seats as others relinquish their lease on their seats (so to speak). The people on the start/finish line are the most diehard of fans and we were lucky that a friend of mine at work happened to be unable to attend this year and let me have his seats. After some initial excitement at the beginning of the race, it got kind of boring up until the last 30 laps or so, when Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne challenged Jimmie Johnson for the lead, only to smell his fumes as he pulled away to a sizeable lead, despite numerous cautions and restarts that closed the field right up until the end. We saw some peculiar people, including a man dressed in everything made of American flags, including his shoes, and one woman pushing a scantily dressed mannequin around on a hand truck. There were a lot of booths giving away free stuff before the race and we took advantage of that. One tent at the end of an especially long line was giving away all the candy you could haul off, so trick-orPlease see FISHING, page 3B

Proctor, Navy slosh past Wake, 13-10 By DAVID GINSBURG AP Sports Writer

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Running the triple option is no easy chore, especially for a sophomore quarterback making his first college start. The task becomes even more complicated playing in a driving rainstorm with a water-logged football. Navy’s Kriss Proctor answered the challenge Saturday, AP Photo/Rob Carr deftly running for 89 yards and a touchdown in a soggy 13-10 win Wake Forest quarterback Riley Skinner is tackled by Navy linebacker Clint over Wake Forest. Sovie during the first half of Saturday’s game in Annapolis, Md. Subbing for injured Ricky

Dobbs (left knee), Proctor carried 23 times and didn’t pass once. Coming in, his lone experience over two seasons was playing the mop-up role in a 63-14 win over Rice two weeks earlier. The rain, which was torrential at times, made the football as slippery as a bar of soap. “I told the A-backs to be aware of the crazy pitches,” Proctor said. “I had one fumble on the goal line, but it’s tough running the option in rainy conditions.” Proctor ran 40 yards for a touchdown to make it 13-3 with 11:23 left in the third quarter. Navy (6-2) then held on downs,

and the Midshipmen moved to the Wake Forest 2 before Proctor lost a fumble after being hit by linebacker Matt Woodlief. But the water-logged Demon Deacons (4-4) couldn’t capitalize. “The conditions made it really, really tough to move the football. Not only to throw it, but catch it,” Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe said. Last year, against SMU in similar conditions, Navy became the first FBS team since Ohio in 1997 not to attempt a single throw. In this game, there was really no need to put the ball up after the first quarter.

College Football NC A&T beats Howard 30-19 WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) — Dontavious Payne rushed for two touchdowns and North Carolina A&T beat Howard 30-19 on Saturday. With Howard leading 13-7 thanks in part to a pair of Dennis Wiehberg field goals from 30 and 33 yards out, Payne scored on runs of 2 and 5 yards to help the Aggies (5-3, 3-2, Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) pull ahead 24-13. He finished with 113 yards on 21 carries. Wallace Miles kicked a 32-yard field goal for the Aggies between Payne’s touchdowns. Mike Mayhew also rushed for two touchdowns, including a 5-yard score with 4:26 remaining to give the Aggies a 30-19 lead. Less than a minute earlier, the Bison (2-5, 0-4) cut the lead to 24-19 on a 32-yard pass from Floyd Haigler to Willie Carter. Haigler went 14-for-34 for 191 yards with two interceptions.

CHARLOTTE — Steve Smith and Terrell Owens on the same field. A short, speedy, dominant and sometimes volatile receiver facing off against a tall, speedy, dominant and sometimes volatile receiver. In the past it would be billed as a matchup of big stars and bigger egos. This year, though, maybe the slogan should be: “Remember these guys?” When Owens’ Buffalo Bills visit Smith’s Carolina Panthers on Sunday, it’ll feature receivers ranked 49th and 92nd in the NFL in receptions. They’ve combined for only 474 yards receiving, one touchdown, four wins — and surprisingly only one blowup. That would be Smith’s outburst after catching just one pass last week against Tampa Bay and declaring that “I’m no longer an asset to this team.” “I feel his frustration,” said Owens, who was also held to one catch last week. “I know where he’s coming from.” Neutralized by constant double teams, poor quarterback play, stagnant offenses and the basic frustrations of playing for losing teams have left both players in uncharted territory. Smith is off to his slowest start since becoming a starter in 2002. Owens recently had his 185-game reception streak, third longest in NFL history, snapped. And consider the game plan for Carolina (2-3) as it seeks its third straight win and prevent Buffalo

Buffalo wide receiver Terrell Owens fights for the ball with New York cornerback Darrelle Revis during last Sunday’s game. (2-4) from winning road games in consecutive weeks for the first time since 2004. “We want to make them a one-dimensional team,” Panthers safety Chris Harris said, who clarified that meant making Buffalo throw the ball. The Bills will likely have Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback with Trent Edwards recovering from his second concussion in a little over a year. Fitzpatrick overcame windy conditions last week to lead the Bills to a 16-13 overtime win over the New York Jets that helped embattled coach Dick Jauron. Fitzpatrick attempted to get the ball to Owens more than Edwards had, but he managed one catch for 9 yards, stats that won’t help the Bills end a nineyear playoff drought. “It’s up to the coaching staff and everybody involved to communicate and try to create some ways to get myself more involved. And I think we’re doing this,” said Owens,

who has 15 catches for 215 yards and a TD. “It’s a work in progress. As of now you see that I haven’t had any gripes about anything.” Indeed, Owens has gone out of his way not to create the controversy that has dominated his stops with other teams. It was Smith who grabbed the headlines after he vented his frustration after catching one pass for 4 yards in Carolina’s 28-21 win over Tampa Bay. “I want to win and be involved in a win,” Smith said. Quarterback Jake Delhomme has been trying to get the ball to his playmaker — perhaps too much. Several of his NFLhigh 10 interceptions have come on passes intended for Smith, who is facing constant bracket coverage because fellow receivers Muhsin Muhammad and Dwayne Jarrett have done little. After Delhomme’s interception was returned for the tying touchdown early in the fourth quarter against the Buccaneers, the Panthers took the ball out of his hands. Carolina’s game-winning 80-yard drive included 15 runs and one pass. DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart were in 2008 form as they each surpassed 100 yards rushing. And with the banged-up Bills having the league’s worst run defense, Smith may have to wait for his catches. While the Bills tied a team record with six interceptions against the Jets, they allowed 318 yards rushing. In the past

four games, they’ve given up 961 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground. And defensive tackle Kyle Williams hurt his shoulder last week. “We all know they’re both good backs, they’re both real quick, shifty guys,” DT Marcus Stroud said of Williams and Stewart. “It’s definitely going to be a challenge for us.” Delhomme hopes an increased focus on the run game will give the fourtime Pro Bowl pick Smith more room to operate. He’s been held to 21 catches for 259 yards and still hasn’t caught a touchdown. “It’s frustrating when you’re a No. 1 guy, a starting receiver, to not have a catch in a game or only have one catch and really not feel part of a game,” Bills receiver Lee Evans said. “Especially for a guy like Steve Smith who’s a very seasoned veteran, who’s been around a lot, made a lot of plays. I can understand the frustration.” Owens, a six-time Pro Bowl pick, has that frustration, too. Consider if you combined Smith and Owens’ stats, it would still rank only fifth in the NFL in yards receiving and tied for fourth in catches. “Obviously he’s voicing his opinion, and I’ve been there before,” Owens said of Smith. “They have to deal with that on that side. But I totally understand where he is coming from. Especially when you feel like you have the talents to be a game-breaker, as you’ve always been, and for whatever reason, it’s not getting done down there.”

Keselowski holds off Busch to win at Memphis MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — As he hit the final turn at Memphis Motorsports Park, Brad Keselowski was loose, almost sideways, and trying to hold on as he reached the finish line. Having Nationwide Series points leader Kyle Busch right on his rear bumper only added to the pressure. “I was doing all I could do to stay in front of him,” Keselowski said. “I thought I was going to wreck to be honest.” Keselowski was able to grab enough of the Delphi Chevrolet steering wheel to hold on and beat Busch to the finish line Saturday, winning the Kroger on Track For The Cure 250. The race on the 3/4-mile oval came down to a green-

white-checker finish after the 14th caution of the day on the final lap. “I caught it at the last minute, and knew I was going to have to run hard to the line,” Keselowski said. “I couldn’t have beat him by more than 2 or 3 feet.” Keselowski was leading when a caution came out on the final lap because Stephen Wallace spun after tangling with Matt Kenseth. Wallace banged into Kenseth’s car after the race and the two had words on pit road. Keselowski, who had taken the lead with a bold move passing four cars on a lap 239 restart, held onto the advantage for his fourth Nationwide win of the year. Busch finished second and leads Carl Edwards by 215 points in the standings. “I guess I should be ecstatic with a second-place finish, seeing as though we didn’t have a car that should have finished in the Top 10,” Busch said. “I gave it all I had on the last few laps. I could have spun him out and wrecked him, but I couldn’t put myself to do it.” Jason Leffler finished third, while Mike Bliss and Brendan Gaughan completed the top five. Edwards was sixth.

“It’s always a matter of survival here,” Leffler said of the Memphis track, which holds the record for most cautions in a Nationwide Series race with 25 two years ago. “It’s that type of race track.” There were 14 cautions on the day, with the last one setting up the exciting finish. Keselowski led 34 of the eventual 254 laps in earning his first victory at Memphis Motorsports Park. Edwards, Busch and two other Sprint Cup drivers were sent to the rear of the grid to start the race because substitute drivers had qualified for them. The Cup drivers had been at Martinsville earlier in the day preparing for Sunday’s race. Edwards entered the race trailing Busch by 195 points, and his hopes of cutting into the lead appeared to take a hit on the 25th lap. Tony Raines got into the back of Edwards, sending him spinning between turns 3 and 4. Edwards took another shot to the back of his Ford before coming to a stop. That was one of three early cautions brought on by crashes. The third included pole-sitter Justin

It was the rookie’s first pole in 36 Nationwide races. He led for the first 34 laps, and eventually finished 19th, holding onto fifth in the points. Despite the early crash, Edwards was in fifth and Busch eighth by the 54th lap. Edwards took the lead on lap 62, but Keselowski passed him five laps later.

ACC FOOTBALL

Parker’s TD in OT lifts Clemson past Miami MIAMI (AP) — Jacoby Ford called the final play, promising Clemson’s coaches it would work. Did it ever. Kyle Parker threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Ford in overtime, giving Clemson a wild, wacky 4037 win over No. 8 Miami on Saturday night — the biggest win during Dabo Swinney’s tenure as coach, the Tigers’ first victory in their last nine tries over ranked teams, and their first road win over a Top 10 foe in more than eight years. “It was a play that we had never run before,” Clemson offensive coordinator Billy Napier said. It was a play Miami won’t want to see again. “We knew this game was going to come down to who made more plays,” Ford said. “And we did.” C.J. Spiller had a 90yard kickoff return for a touchdown — the sixth of his career — and a long catch for another score, on his way to a schoolrecord 310 all-purpose yards for the Tigers (4-3, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference). DeAndre McDaniel had a 23-yard interception for another touchdown and Richard Jackson hit a 30-yard field goal with 5 seconds left in regulation to tie the game. Clemson trailed seven times in the game, erasing every one, Ford’s TD catch the lasting blow. “I have a birthday next month and I think I’m going to turn 50 instead of 40,” Swinney said. “We

Clemson wide receiver Jacoby Ford (6) is surrounded by his teammates after he scored the game-winning touchdown in overtime against Miami Saturday. Clemson won 40-37. had to put on Superman capes. We made plenty of mistakes that could have lost us the game, but they played with poise and confidence. We just kept battling.” How stunning was this from a Miami standpoint? Since the start of the 1985 season, Miami is now 1132 when scoring 37 or more points. The ACC is now out of Miami’s control: Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Virginia all have one loss in the Coastal, meaning the Hurricanes will need help to reach the conference title game. “Not making any excuses,” Miami coach Randy Shannon said. “We just played sloppy.” Jacory Harris threw for two touchdowns for Miami (5-2, 2-2), but also threw three interceptions. The Hurricanes could have had fourth-andgoal from the Clemson

3 in overtime after Matt Bosher’s third field goal of the game. But Miami kept the three points on the board, turning it over to the defense. And Parker — who picked apart the middle of the field all day — found Ford, a South Florida native, for the winning score. Parker finished 25 of 37 for 326 yards. “I should have made the play on that myself,” said Miami safety Randy Phillips, who was near Ford but in a supporting role on the final play. “I should have taken it into my own hands.”

Eagles. Notre Dame (5-2) came up with three interceptions in the second half, the final one with 98 seconds left. The last five games the Fighting Irish had played were decided in the final minute. The Eagles (4-3) repeatedly burned the Notre Dame defense as Dave Shinskie threw for a season-high 279 yards and a touchdown, but the Irish came up with big plays, including two interceptions by Kyle McCarthy. Jimmy Clausen was 26 of 39 passing for 246 yards for Notre Dame.

Notre Dame 20, Boston College 16 SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Golden Tate had 11 catches for 128 yards and two touchdowns to lead Notre Dame to a 20-16 victory over Boston College on Saturday, ending a sixgame losing streak to the

No. 11 Georgia Tech 34, Virginia 9 CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — No. 11 Georgia Tech rushed for 362 yards and ate up the clock with four long scoring drives Saturday in a 34-9 win over Virginia. The Yellow Jackets’ touchdowns came on a 60-yard drive in the second quarter, an 82-yard marathon in the third and possessions of 66 yards and 71 yards in the fourth on a rainy day in Virginia. Quarterback Josh Nesbitt threw only two passes on those four drives. Georgia Tech (7-1, 5-1 ACC) broke an eight-game Charlottesville losing streak, winning on the road in the series for the first time since 1990. The Cavaliers (3-4, 2-1) had a three-game winning streak snapped, a run that followed an 0-3 start that had fans calling for coach Al Groh’s job.

“It makes it tough on for an offense when a lot of your game plan was based around the throw,” Skinner said. “But you can’t use that as an excuse for why the offense didn’t play well. We just didn’t respond to adversity as well as they did.” Adversity? Not for Wake Forest linebacker Dominique Midgett. “Best fun I’ve had in a long while,” he said. “It reminded me of back in the day, playing with your friends and Mama says come in because of the rain. But you don’t want to come in because it’s a

tie game.” Limited to a field goal in a 38-3 loss to Clemson one week earlier, Wake Forest continued its offensive struggles during a first half that ended with Navy ahead 6-3. With the wind at his back, Buckley kicked a career-long 50-yard field goal for a 3-0 lead. The Demon Deacons answered early in the second quarter with a 40yard field goal by Jimmy Newman. Navy then used a 35yard run by Murray to set up a 41-yard field goal by Buckley.

WAKE, from page 1B “We did have a few pass plays called,” Proctor said, “but I couldn’t get a grip on the ball, so I just ran it.” Fullback Vince Murray rushed for a careerhigh 175 yards — his second straight 100-yard game — and Joe Buckley kicked two field goals for the Midshipmen, whose five-game winning streak is their longest since a 5-0 start in 2004. Riley Skinner went 13 of 25 for 173 yards for Wake Forest. His 15-yard touchdown throw to Devon Brown made it 13-10 with 7:41 left, but the

Demon Deacons got only one first down the rest of the way. The game was a rematch of the 2008 EagleBank Bowl, in which Skinner went 11 for 11 in leading Wake Forest to a 29-19 victory. Although Wake Forest plays in the Atlantic Coast Conference and Navy is an independent, the teams have met four times over the past three seasons. Skinner was perfect against Navy back in December, but in this one he ran into a determined defense and a rain that came down in sheets.

FISHING, from page 1B treaters at my house this year can expect to have their choice of Airheads or Mentos. As far as local deer hunting goes, a young lady who lives off the Flat Rock Church Road in Vance County killed a wideracked 8-point buck with a shotgun this week. Other area hunters reported seeing a lot of smaller deer during muzzleloader season recently. I also heard that some local farmers are complaining about too many deer. In fact, in Bearpond, 80 acres of beans reportedly never got over 1 inch tall due to the grazing by the overpopulation of deer. Local angler Chuck Murray, Franklin County Finance Director, will be competing this week in the BASS Federation National Championship, held Oct 28-30 on the Harris chain of lakes in Tavares, Fla. He will be representing North Carolina after winning North Carolina’s 2009 Southern Divisional earlier this year on Lake Gaston.

Walt Bowen’s grandson, John Walter Bowen II, is getting adjusted to life on the water early. something. I also wanted to mention that last week’s column had a technical error where every place I put the symbol for “feet” was changed to the word “inches.” My cousin Jim would never catch a 7-inch tiger shark or worry about 6-inch barracudas. Next week’s article – I was supposed to compete in the Fall Brawl King Mackerel tournament out of Ocean Isle this weekend, but my cousin Jim and I decided to pass this year due to the forecast calling for 7-11-foot seas on Saturday. Whenever the waves are half as long as your

boat, you need to seriously consider staying on land. My son Jimmie and I are planning to spend the weekend fishing on Kerr Lake. It’s been a while since we have been out together and I am looking forward to these two days together. We should be able to catch a lot of bass, especially with this recent warming trend following the cold weather we had last week. Crank baits in shallow water should do the trick. Tip of the week – Don’t forget that infant and senior hunting and fishing licenses are available from the NCWRC at greatly

reduced prices over what you would pay if buying annually. Infants younger than 1 year of age can purchase a lifetime sportsman’s (hunting and fishing including big game stamps) for $200. That is the same amount you would spend in just five years on that license ($40 per year) if purchased annually, assuming that the prices don’t go up (and what do you think the chances of that are?). I am not sure how an infant is supposed to come up with $200, but it might be a great Christmas gift idea for your new grandson or granddaughter. As a matter of fact, I just received the license for my grandson, John Walter Bowen II, and it came in less than a week after I sent in the application. All I needed to do was send in the form and a copy of his birth certificate, along with a check. I went ahead and got him the saltwater coastal license for $75 more. Go to www. ncwildlife.org/Lifetime/lifetime_info.htm for details. You can also buy the same lifetime sportsman’s license for yourself for only $15 if you are 65 years of age or older, which is something that not a lot of people seem to know about.

then-No. 1 Florida earlier and Kiffin’s team came even closer this time. Tennessee was unranked the last time it beat a No. 1, topping Auburn 38-20 in 1985. After Cody’s first block, Greg McElroy passed for a first down and ran for another to move the Tide down the field. His underneath pass to Roy Upchurch was stopped short of a first down when Upchurch got entangled with an official. Tiffin came in to make it a two-score game, and Alabama forced Tennessee into one of its few three-and-outs. Ingram ran for one first down before the Tide was forced to punt again. But Chris Donald was called for roughing the kicker, giving Bama a first down.

DUKE, from page 1B straight game and fifth in the past six. “It just seems like no matter how hard we try, we can’t seem to break through,” Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen said. Still, the Terrapins gave themselves some chances in the fourth quarter before the ACC’s most turnover-prone team had problems keeping hold of the ball. After forcing Lewis to fumble at the 2 and later forcing a punt with about 5 minutes left, the Terrapins gave it right back moments later when Turner’s pass to Ronnie Tyler was intercepted by Vincent Rey. Duke ran some clock before punting with just less than 2 minutes left, but Tony Logan fumbled and Brandon King recovered to seal it. “Disappointed in yourself to let that one go,” Lewis said of his fumble, “but it’s good to know that the defense has your back.” Both teams kept the ball in the air despite rainy conditions — Maryland was held to 67 yards rushing, the fourth time in five games that the Terps failed to crack triple digits as a team, and Duke finished with just 23. Duke seemed to take complete control with Lewis’ second touchdown pass — a pretty playaction flip to Parker that made it 17-6 with about 5 1/2 minutes left in the third and came after a 44-yard down-thesideline heave to Connor Vernon. The Terrapins responded moments later with their only touchdown. Turner dumped off a screen pass to Meggett,

and he cut back to the left, dashed down the sideline and ran through a tackler at the goal line to make it a four-point game. “I thought it was a bigtime answer,” Friedgen said. For Duke, it was a rare matchup with an ACC rival it hadn’t beaten in a decade, and an even rarer position — as a 4-point favorite. The expanded conference’s rotating, divisional schedule kept Maryland off the Duke schedule since 2004. With representatives of the Champs Sports and Chick-fil-A bowls looking on, Lewis picked up where he left off two weeks ago when he threw for a career-high 459 yards and five touchdowns in a 49-28 victory over North Carolina State. Lewis regularly found receivers open across the middle, with his 24yard pitch-and-catch to Donovan Varner making it 7-0 about 7 1/2 minutes in. Varner and Vernon — the ACC’s only two players averaging at least 100 yards receiving — each hit that mark in this one, with Varner catching eight passes for 120 yards and Vernon finishing with five catches for 102 yards. They helped Duke open 4-3 for the second straight season; the Blue Devils closed last year with five straight losses. But perhaps of even more significance for the Blue Devils is this: They committed three turnovers and were penalized 12 times for 101 yards — and still won. “It’s good for Duke to win ugly,” coach David Cutcliffe said. “Is that a change or what?”

COLLEGE FOOTBALL TOP 25

Gators get tough win in Starkville; Iowa, USC survive No. 2 Florida 29, Mississippi State 19 STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Florida's offense got just what it needed: Help from Mississippi State. Chris Rainey scored from 8 yards out after the Bulldogs stumbled on a fake punt and Dustin Doe may have slipped a fumble on an interception return for a touchdown past the referees as the secondranked Gators came away with a tough win over old friend Dan Mullen Saturday night. The Bulldogs (3-5, 1-3 SEC) stymied the Gators (7-0, 5-0) near the goal line all night, but Rainey's run and Doe's 23-yard return helped Florida extend the nation's longest winning streak to 17 games. Tim Tebow scored on a 26-yard run and picked up big chunks of yardage outside the Bulldogs 20. But the Gators offense is still struggling and doesn't resemble the juggernaut that won last season's national title. No. 3 Texas 41, Missouri 7 COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Colt McCoy completed his first 11 passes and produced touchdowns on No. 3 Texas' first three drives. McCoy matched his season best with three touchdown passes, two of them to Jordan Shipley, while Texas' defense blocked a punt for a score in a nearly flawless first half that produced a 35-7 lead. The Longhorns (7-0, 4-0 Big 12) beat Missouri for the sixth straight time and Blaine Gabbert was held to 84 yards passing and a touchdown before getting pulled late in the third quarter. The Tigers (4-3, 0-3) have opened conference play with three straight losses for the first time since 2002 and by a combined score of 95-36. No. 5 Cincinnati 41, Louisville 10 CINCINNATI (AP) — Standing on the sideline in a sweat suit and baseball cap, injured quarterback Tony Pike watched his backup do a nearly perfect job. Sophomore Zach Collaros threw only two incompletions while passing for 253 yards and three touchdowns in the Bearcats' first game without their marquee quarterback. The Bearcats (7-0, 3-0 Big East) are off to their best start since 1954 despite losing Pike, a senior whose strong arm is the perfect fit for their no-huddle, spread offense. He didn't suit up four days after having surgery on his non-throwing forearm, watching from the sideline with his left arm tucked inside his jacket. His understudy proved to be a quick study against lowly Louisville (2-5, 0-3). No. 7 Iowa 15, Michigan State 13 EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Ricky Stanzi connected with Marvin McNutt for a 7-yard touchdown pass as time expired to remain undefeated. The Hawkeyes are 8-0 for the first time in school history and have sole possession of first place in the Big Ten at 4-0. Iowa, sixth in the BCS standings, has won 12 straight dating back to last season, the second-longest streak in the nation. Michigan State (4-4, 3-2) grabbed a 13-9 lead with 1:37 remaining when Kirk Cousins hit Blair White on a 30-yard touchdown. But the Hawkeyes stormed back with a

sharp, game-winning drive led by Stanzi. Stanzi hit Derrell Johnson-Koulianos with a 16-yard pass to move Iowa to the Michigan State 15. A defensive holding penalty moved the ball to Michigan State 7. Stanzi threw three incomplete passes in the end zone, but on fourth down with 2 seconds on the clock, he hit McNutt on a slant pattern in front of Michigan State defensive back Chris L. Rucker.

No. 9 LSU 31, Auburn 10 BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Jordan Jefferson followed the worst game of his young career with his best. Jefferson threw for a career-high 242 yards, including two touchdown passes, and scrambled for another score to lead No. 9 LSU to a 31-10 victory over Auburn on Saturday night. After passing for 96 yards in a 13-3 loss to Florida, Jefferson quickly put that performance behind him with a touchdown pass to Terrance Toliver on LSU's first series. Toliver had a career-high nine catches for 86 yards, Brandon LaFell caught a touchdown pass and freshman Russell Shepard ran 69 yards for his first career TD. LSU's defense was impressive as well, causing two turnovers and sacking Auburn's Chris Todd four times. No. 10 TCU 38, No. 16 BYU 7 PROVO, Utah (AP) — Andy Dalton passed for 241 yards and three touchdowns and No. 10 TCU remained unbeaten. The Horned Frogs (7-0, 3-0 Mountain West) continued their march to what they hope is a BCS berth with their eighth straight victory and routed the Cougars (6-2, 3-1) for the second year in a row. TCU was too fast for BYU on both offense and defense. The Frogs sacked Max Hall four times, the final one causing a fumble early in the fourth quarter that led to a touchdown to finish the blowout with 12:00 left in the game. No. 12 Oregon 43, Washington 19 SEATTLE (AP) — Jeremiah Masoli returned from a knee injury to run for two scores, and No. 12 Oregon blocked a punt for a touchdown and used a fake field goal to set up another TD. Oregon extended its dominance of Washington to six straight — longest in the history of the series — and like the previous five this one wasn't close. Oregon took advantage of Washington's mistakes and the Ducks' defense forced three turnovers, corralled Jake Locker and didn't get the Huskies (3-5, 2-3 Pac-10) into the end zone until the fourth quarter. All six wins in the Ducks' streak have been by more than 20 points. Unlike their last outing two weeks ago at UCLA, the Ducks (6-1, 4-0) got their offense moving. Masoli was a spectator against the Bruins and Oregon needed a kickoff return for a score and an interception return for another TD to get the win. Masoli completed 14 of 22 throws for 157 yards and a touchdown. He also added TD runs of 1 and 3 yards as part of his 54 yards rushing. No. 13 Penn St. 35, Michigan 10 ANN ARBOR, Mich.

(AP) — Daryll Clark threw three of his four touchdown passes to Graham Zug, helping the Nittany Lions to their first win at the Big House since 1996. The Nittany Lions (7-1, 3-1 Big Ten) shut down the Wolverines (5-3, 1-3) Saturday after they opened with a 70-yard TD drive. Clark connected with Zug on the ensuing possession to tie the game. He threw two more TD passes to Zug in the third quarter, giving Penn State a 32-10 lead that it had until taking 10-plus minutes off the clock and kicking a field goal in the fourth.

No. 14 Oklahoma State 34, Baylor 7 WACO, Texas (AP) — Zac Robinson beat his coach's school record by completing 23 of 27 passes and threw for 250 yards and three touchdowns to give the Cowboys their fifth straight win. Oklahoma State has (6-1, 3-0 Big 12) won its last four games without injured running back Kendall Hunter or suspended receiver Dez Bryant. Baylor (3-4, 0-3), which has a 20-game losing streak to ranked teams, has scored only 24 points in its Big 12 games. The Bears are 1-3 since standout sophomore quarterback Robert Griffin tore a ligament in his right knee a month ago. Oklahoma State, which plays No. 3 Texas at home next weekend, was again just fine without its top running back and top receiver from last season. No. 17 Houston 38, SMU 15 HOUSTON (AP) — Charles Sims ran for 105 yards and two touchdowns and No. 17 Houston took advantage of turnoverprone SMU. The Cougars (6-1, 2-1 Conference USA) jumped out to a 14-0 lead after taking advantage of two SMU turnovers and cruised to the victory in their first home game in almost a month. Sims scored Houston's first touchdown on a 20-yard run and had a 6-yard score with about six minutes remaining. No. 18 Ohio St. 38, Minnesota 7 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Terrelle Pryor threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score. A week after a 26-18 loss at Purdue, the Buckeyes (6-2, 4-1 Big Ten) made Minnesota (4-4, 2-3) pay for its bad plays. The Golden Gophers had two major misplays in the secondary and two turnovers inside their own 20. Pryor said he was a new man after four turnovers in the Purdue defeat. He played better against Minnesota, but it was difficult to tell how much because the Gophers made so many costly mistakes. Pryor hit on 13 of 25 passes for 239 yards with one interception and also ran for 104 yards on 15 carries. No. 19 Utah 23, Air Force 16, OT SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Stevenson Sylvester stuffed Connor Dietz on a fourth-down quarterback keeper in overtime. On fourth-and-2 at the 7, Dietz pulled the ball from the fullback and tried the same play that had worked all game long. This time, Sylvester filled the running lane and brought Dietz down for no gain. Dietz rolled on the ground in misery as the Utah players flooded the

field from the sideline to celebrate the Utes' fourth straight win.

No. 20 Pittsburgh 41, South Florida 14 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Bill Stull threw for two touchdowns, Dion Lewis ran for two more as the Panthers scored on all five possessions in the first half to extend their best start to a season in 27 years. The Panthers (4-0 in Big East) are 7-1 for the first time since 1982 — Dan Marino's senior season and the last time Pitt was ranked No. 1. They made this one look easy as Stull completed his first 11 passes against a Bulls defense that appeared geared to stopping Lewis at the start, before he took over and run for 111 yards in three quarters to push his season's total to 1,029 yards. Texas A&M 52, No. 21 Texas Tech 30 LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Cyrus Gray scored four touchdowns to help Texas A&M snap a three-game losing streak. Texas A&M (4-3, 1-2 Big 12) hadn't won in Lubbock since 1993. It was quite a turnaround from A&M's 62-14 loss last week to Kansas State. The Aggies had 334 total yards in the first half against the Red Raiders a week after they had 301 for the entire game. Jerrod Johnson completed 19 of 28 passes for 238 yards and a touchdowns, and added 71 yards and another score on 10 carries. No. 22 West Virginia 28, Connecticut 24 MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Connecticut nearly pulled out a win for Jasper Howard. Noel Devine's 56-yard touchdown run in the closing minutes lifted No. 22 West Virginia over the Huskies on Saturday in the Huskies' first game since he starting cornerback was fatally stabbed outside a university-sponsored dance a week ago. Devine ran for 171 of his 178 yards in the second half as West Virginia (6-1, 2-0 Big East) overcame the inspired play of the Huskies (4-3, 1-2). The determined Huskies outgained the Mountaineers 501-387. Sophomore quarterback Cody Endres threw for a career-high 378 yards and two scores. Marcus Easley caught five passes for a career-high 157 yards, including an 88-yard TD. "We really wanted to go out and get this win for Jazz, but we came up short," Easley said. No. 25 Oklahoma 35, No. 24 Kansas 13 LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Chris Brown scored three touchdowns, and No. 25 Oklahoma throttled Todd Reesing and the nation's second-leading offense. The Sooners (4-3, 2-1 Big 12) intercepted Kansas' career passing leader on the Jayhawks' first three possessions. Dominique Franks set the defensive tone with an 85-yard touchdown return of the second interception of the NCAA's fifth-leading passer. Landry Jones, starting for injured Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Sam Bradford, threw two touchdown passes and had little trouble with a Kansas defense that has been undergoing a midseason overhaul. Kansas (5-2, 1-2) hurt itself with penalties as well as turnovers and had only two field goals until Reesing's 5-yard TD run with 4:27 left.

Minnesota Wild’s John Scott reaches for Carolina’s Tim Conboy’s helmet during a fight in the first perioid of Saturday’s game. Both players were assessed five-minute fighting penalties.

Clutterbuck goal in OT lifts Wild past Canes Off the post, off his face, on the ice and into the net. Cal Clutterbuck might not score too many goals like that. In his first game back after missing five games with a high ankle sprain, Clutterbuck gave the Minnesota Wild a 3-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes with his improbable goal Saturday night. “The puck hit me in the face off the post. Then it dropped down in the slot and I managed to find it,” Clutterbuck said. “I just waved at it and it went in. Pretty lucky actually.” The forward, who was initially expected to miss a couple of months, knocked in a rebound of a shot by Greg Zanon as Cam Ward was sprawling back across the crease for Carolina. Andrew Brunette and Kyle Brodziak also had goals for the Wild, who are undefeated in three home games, but are pointless in seven on the road. Minnesota, which remained winless in regulation, has won twice in overtime at home and once in a shootout. Since last season, Minnesota is 9-0-4 in its last 13 home games. Sergei Samsonov and Joni Pitkanen scored for the Hurricanes. Carolina earned two points on a four-game trip, and remained winless in seven games away from the RBC Center. Clutterbuck set an NHL record with 356 hits last season, but was injured two weeks ago in San Jose. He began skating with the team earlier this week, but still needed clearance from the doctor Saturday afternoon to play. “He’s definitely a guy we need,” Zanon said. “He’s hard on the forecheck and makes the opposing team not want to go after the puck. His work ethic is unbelievable. He deserved that goal out there tonight.” Clutterbuck, who admitted his legs were a bit heavy, antagonized everyone in a different sweater by hustling, finishing checks and yapping a lot. “I probably couldn’t have dreamed it up any better. I’m just glad we won the game,” Clutterbuck said. “I’m glad I was able to have some sort of impact on the game.”

Late in the third period, he drew a roughing penalty on Pitkanen. “He had their whole bench up shouting at him, got them to focus on him instead of the game,” said Minnesota coach Todd Richards. Carolina entered the game last in the league in penalty minutes, averaging 22.4 minutes per game. The next closest team, Ottawa, was at 19 minutes per game. The Hurricanes were whistled for nine minor infractions; Minnesota had five. “The problem is there is such a gray area nowadays. One shift it’s a penalty, and then next shift it’s not. “Then either make them all penalties or make them all not,” Ray Whitney said. “It’s frustrating to us, but that’s not why we lost by any means. We’re not blaming refereeing.” Hurricanes coach Paul Maurice disagreed. “We have to be responsible for the ones that are stick infractions that are legitimate, but I wasn’t very pleased with the slant of the way that game went in terms of the calls that were made.” Samsonov tipped in a pass from Whitney midway through the opening period for a 1-0 lead. It was the first power-play goal allowed by Minnesota in 24 chances. Brunette tied it two minutes later with a power-play goal. A fortuitous bounce led to a 2-1 Wild lead early in the second. Preparing to make a line change, Owen Nolan tried to dump the puck in from in front of the Wild bench, but the puck deflected off a Carolina skate to Brodziak, who went in alone and beat Ward with a forehandbackhand move. Pitkanen tipped the puck past Niklas Backstrom to complete a 2-on1 less than six minutes later. Backstrom, 11-0-4 in his past 15 home decisions, finished with 21 saves, including a sprawling stop on Eric Staal early in the third, a glove save on Matt Cullen late in the period and a right pad stop of Cullen in the final minute of regulation. “We got four-and-ahalf, maybe five, breakaways in that game,” Maurice said. “You get one a game you’re pretty excited.”

NBA, referees agree to deal, ending lockout The officials voted to ratify the deal that was reached earlier this week. No details of the vote were provided, nor were terms of the agreement. “We are pleased to reach this agreement,” NBA commissioner David Stern said in a statement. “The negotiations extended further than either side had hoped, but when our regular season tips off on Tuesday we’ll have the

By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

NEW YORK — The regular referees made the call. They’re coming back to work. The referees union and the NBA agreed on a twoyear contract Friday, ending a lockout of more than a month and saving the league from using replacements when the regular season starts.

The 57 referees were set to begin a three-day training camp Saturday and be ready when the regular season starts Tuesday night. The league used replacement officials during exhibition play.

consented to a two-year deal at the request of the union, which hoped it could renegotiate sooner with the economy hopefully in better shape. The sides agreed on a salary structure that would give the refs a slight raise in the second year, but they remained apart on proposed changes to the referees’ pension and severance packages, as well as a plan to de-

velop younger officials by having them work in NBA games. The contract between the league and the National Basketball Referees Association expired Sept. 1, and the league announced on Sept. 18 that it was locking out the officials, saying they had rejected its final contract offer. The NBA decided to go with replacements late

LeBron James and a Cavalier team that posted the league’s best record last season. LeBron, who already took the MVP award that Kobe won a year prior, is now running with Bryant’s most formidable ex-sidekick. Thickening the plot, no team has won back-toback championships since the Bryant-O’Neal Lakers from 2000-02. The Shaq acquisition creates the tantalizing possibility of a LakersCavs finale but Cleveland is far from the only squad that upped the ante this offseason. The Lakers added talented hothead Ron Artest while maintaining versatile sixth-man Lamar Odom. The best of the rest – the Spurs, Magic and Celtics – got even better through key additions.The move that delivers the biggest payoff could determine which team is celebrating come June.

FAMILY FEATURES

or anyone with children or teenagers in the house, it’s no surprise that being online is the in thing to do. According to research studies conducted by The Nielson Company, approximately 16 million U.S. children ages two to 11 are active online. This shows an 18 percent increase over the past five years, while the overall Internet population only increased usage by 10 percent. Furthermore, the amount of time children spend online is 63 percent higher than just five years ago. One problem that falls under the umbrella of Internet safety that children may face when they’re online, is cyberbullying. A cyberbully is a minor who uses the Internet, phone or other digital device to post hurtful messages or images to another minor. Parry Aftab, executive director of the charity that runs StopCyberbullying.org says, “They do it by posing as each other, stealing or misusing their passwords, stealing points in online games. They call each other names, or send offensive messages to their friends while impersonating them. They even take embarrassing pictures of others and post them online.” Cyberbullying affects children as young as seven and up through high school. According to a yearlong survey of students in the U.S. and Canada conducted by Aftab, results showed that: � Cyberbullying starts as early as third grade, peaks in fourth grade and again in seventh and eighth grade. � 75 percent of teens reported cyberbullying someone else and 85 percent of students reported they had been targeted at least once in the past year. When kids are still in grammar school, the direct attacks usually consist of making fun of each other and testing limits. In middle school, cyberbullies attack classmates’ reputations and it can escalate from there as children move into high school.

What Can Parents Do?

Aftab recommends open communication between parents and children. “Encourage discussions about what they enjoy online,” she says. “This way you can direct your children to safe sites that fit their interests and it helps your children know you want an active role in their life.” It’s important to make sure that your children feel comfortable coming to you with questions. This should apply to all situations including the computer. If your children feel they can trust you, they are more likely to come to you with tough problems and questions. A survey by WiredSafety found that only 5 percent of middle schoolers would tell their parents if they were cyberbullied, and that they have identified more than 50 different reasons not to tell their parents. If your child is the victim of cyberbullying, the most important thing parents can do, says Aftab, is to give them a hug. “Tell them you love them and how sorry you are that they were hurt. Let them know that the

cyberbully is not the boss of them. And promise not to overreact and take away the technology or call the school, the other parents or the media and make things worse.” The most important thing parents can do to protect children is to monitor computer and Internet usage. “Knowing you are watching, kids are less likely to put themselves in risky situations and you can safely oversee negative or dangerous behaviors,” says Aftab.

What Should Kids Do?

As part of its online community at buildabearville.com, Build-A-Bear Workshop promotes safety tips for kids that can be applied to any online experience.

Stop, Block and Tell

If someone is cyberbullying or trying to get personal information, Stop talking to them, Block them from talking to you and Tell a trusted adult. Aftab also says, “To help them keep a healthy perspective they should ‘Take 5’ when something or someone upsets them online. That means they should do something they love offline for five minutes to help calm down and not do anything they will regret.”

Password Protection �

Passwords should be easy to remember, hard to guess. If your kids have to write it down, it’s too hard to remember. If it’s a pet’s name, their middle name, their favorite sports team, etc., it’s too easy to guess. Sit down with your kids and talk about ideas for a password, and remember a combination of numbers and letters is always best. Don’t allow kids to give out their password to others. 85 percent of elementary school students and 70 percent of teens polled said they shared their password with at least one friend. That’s one friend too many! Friends can be cyberbullies too, signing onto your child’s account, impersonating them and possibly embarrassing them. They can also change your child’s password, locking them out of their account.

Get Involved

Build-A-Bear Workshop encourages kids and adults to get involved in making the Internet a safer place. Build-A-Bearville recently became one of the first to earn the Socially Safe Kids Seal, reserved for the sites whose moderators and game designers have all been trained on Internet safety and cyberbullying. In addition to having suggested tips and resources for parents and kids available at buildabearville.com, the company has also incorporated the importance of safe play into their online play experience. Citizens of Build-A-Bearville are encouraged to take an Online Safety Quiz to receive a special hat for their avatar. They are also reminded of online safety tips in the Bearville Times, the site’s weekly newspaper. Build-A-Bear Workshop also recognizes kids for being good citizens in the online world. Their Jr. CyBearGuide program allows qualified kid citizens of Build-A-Bearville to act as guides by answering questions, providing information and even giving tours. If you or your child is interested in becoming a Jr. CyBearGuide member, visit Bear University in BuildA-Bearville. Click the paw under the big Jr. CyBearGuide blue star to learn more about the program.

Online Safety Guidelines for Parents

Parry Aftab of WiredKids.org has additional tips to help keep kids safe online. � Personal information stays personal. While this is an important rule for children it’s also an important rule for parents. Giving information on your family and your children to the wrong person can be dangerous. � Make sure your child doesn’t spend all of his or her time on the computer. Other kids, not computers, should be their best friends and companions. � Remember to monitor their compliance with safety rules, especially when it comes to the amount of time children spend on the computer. � Warn them that people may not be what they seem to be. The Internet provides a cover for people to put on whatever personas they desire.

Jody Proctor of the Henderson Police Department accepted a recent award honoring the efforts of the city and the police department to ensure safe roads for citizens and visitors of Henderson. The town was recognized for its focus on curbing speeding, increasing seatbelt use and apprehending impaired drivers. The police department has been very active in public awareness efforts and speaking with community groups. “More people have died on North Carolina roads since 9/11 than died in the attack on New York or in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq,” said Tom Crosby, president of the Foundation of Traffic Safety. “Making our streets safer is a team effort and North Carolina has several communities that have stepped up to the challenge.” Darrell Jernigan of the Governor’s Highway Safety Program and Bert Collins, a member of the board for the Foundation for Traffic Safety pre-

Granville Health System employees raise more than $27,000 for walkway Granville Health System has announced that the organization’s employees have raised more than $27,000 through the “Paving the Way” employee giving campaign. The funds raised will benefit the Granville Health System Foundation and a portion of the money will be used to construct a brick walkway leading to the entrance of the new Granville Medical Center Emergency Department. The employees exceeded the initial campaign goal of $5,000 within five days of the 30-day program. In mid-June, Granville Health System filed an application for a major expansion of Granville Medical Center’s Emergency Department with the Certificate of Need section of the Division of Health Service Regulation of North Carolina’s Department of Health and Human Services. The new

construction is slated to begin in 2010. “Leading by example, our staff has illustrated how an organization can stand in support of the community it serves,” said Gary Bowman, chairman of the Granville Health System Foundation. “GHS employees continue to show a commitment to Granville County and the surrounding areas by helping to improve the health system through programs like this giving campaign.” Employees that participated in the giving campaign received a “Paving the Way” pin, and those who sponsored a brick for the employee walkway are being honored on a campaign mural posted in the existing emergency department during the campaign. Employees who sponsored a brick for the walkway will have their name, or a name of their choosing, imprinted on the brick.

‘Borderlands’ a blast for gamers By LOU KESTEN Associated Press Writer

Like most video gamers, I’ve wielded enough virtual weapons to equip a small army. We all have favorites, from the classic BFG-9000 in “Doom” to the chainsawequipped assault rifle in “Gears of War” to the awesome RYNO (“Rip You a New One”) in “Ratchet & Clank.” “Borderlands” (2K Games, for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, $59.99) is dedicated to aficionados of fantastic weaponry. Developer Gearbox Software says the game has “bazillions” of guns, thanks to a random content generator that mixes and matches parts, ammunition and enhancements, like bullets that also set their targets on fire. Whether you find all bazillion (actually, more than 17 million at last estimate), guns are everywhere in “Borderlands.” You have pistols, revolvers, shotguns, machine guns, sniper rifles, rocket launchers and even some exotic alien ordnance. And you will need all of it on the

desolate planet of Pandora, home of the galaxy’s deadliest beasts, bandits and mutants. “Borderlands” feels like a sci-fi version of the classic fantasy role-playing game “Diablo.” Their goals are the same: Kill everything, steal weapons and loot, upgrade your weapons and kill bigger things. The major difference is that this is a first-person shooter, so you get a little “Halo” mixed in. It’s an addictive formula. It’s also reminiscent of last year’s “Fallout 3,” which also took place in a blasted, lawless, mutant-filled landscape. But “Fallout 3” thrived on a brilliant story, filled with memorable encounters with distinctive characters. The story in “Borderlands” is so thin, you often forget it’s there, and the only interesting characters are the ones you meet in the introductory movie. The eye-catching, cel-shaded graphics in “Borderlands” give it a more cartoonish look than most shooters. And the soundtrack has a slight country twang reminiscent of the sci-fi TV series “Firefly.” Three stars out of four.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You know exactly what you want to say. You will give calm and clear directions, and you will explain things simply and be understood. Your quiet voice is the one that will move mountains. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A friend’s recent triumph over a longstanding challenge inspires you to look at your own life. Boldness is contagious, so it’s only fitting that you’re considering a chapter of self-improvement. The omens are with you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Take a break. Really take it. There is genius in stillness. Doing as little as possible is the perfect way to get centered. When you feel like you must move, let caprice be your guide instead of that long to-do list. CANCER (June 22-July 22). A nice long walk will improve even the best of moods. And if you feel a little off, whatever ails you will be cured in stride — literally. Especially if you can go solo and take your sweet time. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Long, flowing lines in your clothing accentuate that sense of gracefulness you feel in your spirit right now. Your heart is pounding out a dancer’s rhythm. Move to it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Friends are always asking for your opinion, and for good reason. You are modest and unaware of the poignant nature of your own advice. Your wisdom is applied more often than you know or are credited for. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re like a cinematographer doing a close-up of your life. It’s time to pan out to get more into the picture. As you broaden your view, you’ll see that your straits aren’t as dire as they sometimes feel. Actually, things are quite good. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your magnetic personality is irresistible to most but, alas, not all. There are always a few magnets out there charged the opposite way. It’s just a law of nature. Don’t sweat it. Revel in your many fans. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). Your energy increases because of the healthy choices you make. This could be physical, like doing something to get your blood pumping, or emotional, like refusing to take part in gossip and negativity. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Those who mean the most to you will take your ideas and feelings into account as they make their daily decisions. You’ll see evidence of this consideration and recognize it as love in action. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s a goal you’ll want to accomplish by the end of the day. Follow the strategy that has worked for someone you trust. It won’t be a perfect fit, but it will get you going in the right direction. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are so determined to complete your task that not even the forces of nature can get in your way. Your internal strength of mind and heart will keep the so-called “whims” of circumstance working in your favor.

teur sleuth whose personality and background equips her or him with a variety of skills that aid in crimesolving, a small town setting, and a fast-paced and engaging storyline that is mostly free of profanity and graphic violence or sex. Many cozy mysteries are part of a series. Often there is a main character that draws one or more friends into puzzling through clues and ultimately solving the crime. Amateur sleuths hail from a range of occupations, professions, and hobbies including shop owners, animal lovers, knitters, quilters, fishermen, home repair experts, florists, librarians, professors, lawyers, and even psychics or ghosts. Perry Library has a solid selection of cozy mystery authors. Get to know them and their quirky detectives: Lydia Adamson’s “Alice Nestleton Mysteries;” M.C. Beaton’s “Agatha Raisin” or “Hamish Macbeth” series; Blaize Clement’s pet-sitter “Dixie Hemingway;” Diane Mott Davidson and her caterer-detective “Goldy Bear;” and Earlene Fowler’s “Bennie Harper,” curator, quilt lover, ex-rancher.

DEAR ABBY: My husband, “Adrian,” and I have been married five years, but there is something looming in our future that both of us dread — our parents’ old age. Adrian is an only child. I have one sister, but when it comes to caring for our parents, I might as well be an only child. Adrian’s parents live month-to-month on Social Security and pension checks. If they ever have any extra money, they don’t save it. They buy each other expensive gifts and eat out. Neither one of them is in good health, and the day will come when they won’t be able to care for themselves or each other, and I know they’ll expect us to do it. My parents are about the same, except they’re banking on an inheritance to see them through retirement. That money may or may not be enough, considering how long people live now. My grandparents were frugal. They saved and were determined not to be a burden on their children. Our parents think it’s our duty to care for them. His parents are in their late 60s, and we have young children. We cringe at the idea that after all our hard work we’ll go from caring for our children to caring for our parents with no time for ourselves. — AFRAID FOR THE FUTURE IN SAN ANTONIO DEAR AFRAID: No one can foresee the future, so stop ruining the present by obsessing about what “might” happen. You say your in-laws are not in good health? One or both of them could die before they become completely dependent on you and your husband. The same is true for your parents. Forgive me if this seems cold, but it happens will fill to be the truth.

DEAR ABBY: My husband, “Harvey,” and I have operated a home-based business for more than 20 years. Harvey is an amazing technician, extremely efficient with his time on the job. The problem is, he is always in a hurry to get to the next job. I receive calls from angry motorists complaining that “the driver of one of our trucks” cut them off, yelled at them or flipped them off in traffic. When I receive one Dear of these Abby calls I say, Universal Press “Thank you for Syndicate calling. I’ll be sure to speak to the appropriate driver about the incident.” Harvey feels I should support him by telling the caller it was probably his own fault for talking on a cell phone, driving too slow or cutting him off. I have no doubt that some of these motorists actually do those things, but my husband is driving around with his phone number on his truck and they’re not. When I mention the complaints, he wants to call them back using caller ID. Am I handling this appropriately? I don’t feel I should reprimand someone for bad driving if I wasn’t present when something happened, nor do I want anyone to know it was my husband — the owner of the business — who flipped them off. Harvey is angry at me because I’m “not supporting” him. Any suggestions? — BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE DEAR BETWEEN: Harvey may be a great technician, but it appears he’s a little short on common sense and good manners. I see no reason why you should defend him. His behavior is not only childish but also dangerous. Because other motorists are actually calling to report his client erratic driving, it’s a pretty

Kidman: Hollywood probably contributes to violence against women By CHRISTINE SIMMONS Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — Nicole Kidman conceded Wednesday that Hollywood has probably contributed to violence against women by portraying them as weak sex objects. The Oscar-winning actress said she is not interested in those kinds of demeaning roles, adding that the movie industry also has made an effort to contribute to solutions for ending the violence. Kidman testified before a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee that is considering legislation to address violence against women overseas through humanitarian relief efforts and grants to local organizations working on the problem. Asked by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., if the movie industry has “played a bad role,” Kidman said “probably,” but quickly added that she herself doesn’t. “I can’t be responsible for all of Hollywood but I can certainly be responsible for my own career,” she said. Kidman appeared before the committee in her role as a goodwill ambassador the U.N. Development Fund for Women, known as UNIFEM, to promote the International Violence Against Women Act.

Actress Nicole Kidman listens during the House International Organizations, Human Rights and Oversight Subcommittee hearing on violence against women on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2009. “In the real world, the laws go unenforced and impunity is the norm,” she said. The legislation has stalled in the past, but a sponsor, Rep. Bill Delahunt, D-Mass., said he and others plan to reintroduce it soon. The Australian star told Congress that the U.N. women’s fund needs more resources. “We need the money,” she said. Before the hearing began, a crowd of people lined the hall and around the corner to hear her speak.

In this undated image originally released by Boneau/BryanBrown, Brian d’Arcy James is shown as the title character in “Shrek the Musical,” in New York.

‘Shrek the Musical’ to close on Broadway in 2010 NEW YORK (AP) — Say goodbye, New York, to that smelly green ogre. DreamWorks Theatricals producer Bill Damaschke (DAH’-mash-kee) says “Shrek the Musical” will close Jan. 3, 2010, on Broadway after a yearlong, 441-performance run. The expensive musical has seen its grosses dwindle since the end of summer. Last week, the show grossed

about $580,000, filling less than 60 percent of the seats at the Broadway Theatre, one of New York’s largest playhouses. “Shrek” is based on the company’s successful animated film and the characters in William Steig’s book. The show opened last December to mostly mixed reviews. A national tour is to begin in July at the Cadillac Palace Theatre in Chicago.

Facebook to allow 10-cent Web song gifts from Lala By RYAN NAKASHIMA AP Business Writer

LOS ANGELES — Facebook will soon allow friends to send each other 10-cent Web songs to stream online or 90-cent songs in the MP3 format that recipients can download as gifts from online retailer Lala. The offering will be available by Thursday afternoon, starting with a limited group of Facebook users and spreading gradually. The development, which both companies confirmed Wednesday, bolsters Facebook’s existing gift offerings that include virtual birthday cakes and pints of beer, while putting Palo Alto startup Lala in front of millions of potential new customers. The service will only be available in the U.S.

“Instead of just selling an MP3, we’re selling an event for someone,” Lala co-founder Bill Nguyen told The Associated Press. Purchases will use Facebook’s payment system, in which customers buy credits worth 10 cents each with a credit card. Nine-credit song downloads will be of higher quality than one-credit streaming song gifts. More than 8 million songs from all the major recording companies and independent labels will be available at launch. Facebook, also based in Palo Alto, downplayed expectations for a big revenue increase from the new service. “Some revenue is generated from the Gift Shop, but advertising is still our core business and we are focused on growing that,” the company said in a statement.

Kid stuff: Decorating with your child’s artwork By DIANA MARSZALEK For The Associated Press

Having moved five times in the last nine years, Pam Syx, now of Venice, Fla., had many opportunities to chuck some of her two children’s artwork along the way. Instead, a picture of a train that 6-year-old Preston drew with neon gel pens when he was 4 remains preserved in a frame. A self-portrait by 9-year-old Veronica is immortalized on a coffee mug and coaster. Other creations plaster Syx’s office walls and refrigerator, and fill tote bags and boxes around the house. “I just can’t get rid of anything their little hands do,” said Syx, explaining that her habit of holding on started as an effort to spur her kids’ creativity. “My husband thinks I’m a packrat. He’s right,” Syx said. “I’m concerned that I’m going to pass down an undesirable

habit to my kids or burden them with thinking they have to keep everything like I do.” Parents of children big and small struggle with how, what and where to store the tons of arts and crafts that kids bring home, from the earliest days of preschool, when every scribble seems a stroke of brilliance, to later education when creativity often takes on more dynamic (read: larger) proportions. Some hard-line parents opt for what could seem like the easy way out: tossing the bulk of their kids’ various renditions out with the rubbish. Others, however, say their offspring’s creations — even sans signs of early brilliance — pose a continuing dilemma between saving pieces of childhood and getting mired in — dare we say? — junk. “If it can’t go on a wall or be given to grandma for Christmas, then throw it out,” said Joanne Walker, a former

kindergarten teacher who now owns the crafts studio Children’s Creative Corner in Larchmont, N.Y. With 11 and 12-year-old daughters of her own, Walker has come up with a system at home that preserves her girls’ creations for posterity and keeps clutter at bay: She saves only artwork that has particular significance, but takes a picture of the stuff that doesn’t make the cut. “You can’t possibly keep every project they come home with,” she said. Experts at staying clutterfree said Walker has it right. Ruth Phillips, a professional household organizer based outside Atlanta, suggests letting children help decide which projects are saved or scrapped. That makes the decisions easier, she said, and averts potential disaster when children discover their work in the recycle bin. “It’s very traumatic for

them to open the trash can and see all their papers in there,” Phillips said. In time, even saved artwork can be relinquished in a meaningful way, Phillips said. Now that her children are grown, she has sent the art collections on to them. One daughter, Phillips said, was particularly thrilled recently to receive a framed painting she did as a child. “She was so excited,” Phillips said. “And she’s 39 years old.” Althea McDonald, a Raleigh, N.C., “art enthusiastic,” proudly displays walls’ worth of her children’s work. Her family’s guest bathroom is covered floor to ceiling with art by her 11- and 13-year-old daughters. On a bookshelf in the house’s entryway, there is a collection of the girls’ threedimensional pieces. “I really enjoy it. It’s happy. And my kids are proud of it,” McDonald said. “It’s a really positive thing.”

Quick tips for creative kids Some tips to make storing — or trashing — kids’ artwork easier: • Let the kids help decide what stays and what goes. It helps to know which pieces they care about. • Weigh each piece’s significance or eye appeal. You might keep children’s art that exemplifies a particular age, a significant change or is simply really good. • Set aside limited storage space for arts and crafts. For example, designate a large box for each child’s work. Have the children revisit their creations once or twice a year, eliminating some. Long, under-the-bed containers work well for storing drawings, too. • Designate a “gallery” at home where framed art can be displayed. Hang as much of your children’s work as you like — it’s your house, and theirs. • Take pictures of the projects you’re not going to keep. They’ll be immortalized but won’t take up space. — The Associated Press

More homeowners looking to stoves for heat By CARYN ROUSSEAU Associated Press Writer

For 23 years, Julie Gore has heated her Ada, Ohio, home with a wood-burning stove. When the old one wore out, she didn’t hesitate to buy another for her family room. “It’s warm and toasty,” said Gore, an administrative assistant at Ohio Northern University. “I wouldn’t trade it. If you get a chill you can stand by it and warm up.” Stoves as secondary heating sources are growing in popularity, and come in two basic varieties: wood stoves and pellet stoves. Some proponents say the stoves can be more environmentally friendly and help cut energy costs; other experts say that can vary from household to household. Traditional wood-burning stoves like Gore’s enjoy

stronger sales, but pellet stoves, which burn compressed sawdust, may be gaining, according to the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association, a manufacturers trade group. Wood stoves and wood fireplace inserts saw an 81 percent increase in shipments in 2008, the association said. Pellet stoves and pellet fireplace inserts increased 161 percent that year. Both kinds of stoves are meant mostly to heat specific rooms or groups of rooms, not entire houses. They cost between $3,000 and $4,500 including installation. The federal government is offering a 30 percent tax rebate in 2009 and 2010 for purchases of wood or pellet stoves that meet a 75 percent efficiency requirement. Here are some of the ways wood and pellet stoves compare:

Effort

Efficiency

Wood stoves must be fed with logs, while pellet stoves use 40-pound bags of pellets poured into a hopper. Most pellet stove hoppers hold an entire bag of pellets, which will last about 24 hours before needing to be reloaded, said Leslie Wheeler, spokeswoman for the trade association. With pellet stoves, look for a model with a large hopper opening to make it easier to load pellets, and check for an easily removable ash pan to make cleanup quick, suggested Bob Markovich, the home and yard editor at Consumer Reports magazine, which recently profiled heating stoves. A safety precaution: Homeowners should place carbon monoxide and smoke detectors near the stoves, Markovich advised.

Pellet stoves produce very little smoke, giving them a reputation as more environmentally friendly, Wheeler said. “There’s very, very little moisture in that pellet,” she said. “It burns very cleanly, very efficiently and leaves very little ash.” Ken Hellevang, an engineer with the extension service at North Dakota State University, noted of pellet stoves: “Even the most efficient burning units, there’s still ash that needs to be discarded. There’s some labor involved on a daily basis.” Pellet stoves also require electricity, since fans circulate the heat, so it’s a good idea to purchase a backup battery, Wheeler said. Wood-burning stoves don’t need electricity.

Markovich of Consumer Reports described all heating stoves as “a large version of an electric, $30 space heater.” “People have this sort of rising desire to be off the grid and control more of their own expenditures,” he said. “People are looking for any way they can to save.” But if you’re trying to lower home heating bills, Markovich said, you’ll need to turn down the heat in the rest of the home when using a wood or pellet stove. “To really save money, you have to keep the rest of your house colder,” he said. Another tip: Make sure the square footage you want to heat matches the square footage the stove can warm, Markovich said.

Cost About half of all households nationwide

depend on natural gas for heating, according to the federal Energy Information Administration. The agency recently forecast that costs for heating fuels this winter — including natural gas, propane, oil and electric — should all be down. Based on today’s costs, Markovich said, burning pellets costs about 15 percent less than oil and 40 percent less than electric heat, but about 25 percent more than natural gas. “If you’re in fact burning natural gas now, buying a pellet stove is a mistake because it costs more,” he said. Wood stoves can be a bargain for some. “A lot of people are near rural areas where wood is cheap or free,” Markovich said. “If that’s you, that makes financial sense.”
