In Warrenton, five vie for three town commission seats By DAVID IRVINE Daily Dispatch Writer

WARRENTON — Candidates for municipal offices in Warren County are on the ballot for the election to be held on Tuesday, Nov. 3. Warren County Board of Elections Director Debbie Formyduval reminds voters that they have one last chance to cast early ballots — between 8:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. tomorrow. In the Warrenton mayoral race, Marc Steer is challenging incumbent Walter Gardner. Five candidates are vying for three town commissioner positions. Julius (Jules) Banzet III and Mary Lang Hunter currently hold commissioner’s seats. Hunter, who was appointed to fill an empty position, is running for re-election for the first time. Robert Davie, E. T. (Ted) Malone Jr. and William (Bill) Miller are challenging for positions on the town board. Incumbent Rob Evans faces Carroll Harris in the mayoral race in Macon. Six candidates are competing for five commissioner positions, including incumbents J. W. Beddingfield, David Harris, Allen Hobgood, Glenn R. Riggan and Wanda Thompson and challenger Benny Hilliard.

While Wake County’s population is expected to grow 62 percent from 2008-2013, other shares of the expected 275,256 new people could include: • Vance — .2 percent. • Warren — 0 percent. • Granville — 2 percent. • Franklin — 2 percent. • Person — .4 percent. • Durham — 8 percent.

• Orange — 1 percent. • Chatham — 3 percent. A lot of local shakers and movers intent on bringing jobs, prosperity and a better quality of life to Vance got to see an economically dull statistical portrait of the county Tuesday. It showed what industrial and business site-seekers across the country can see — and the impressions they could get — by pulling up Vance County on their computers without even setting

their feet on the ground in Henderson, the Hub site, the industrial park and other areas. “Vance County’s basic assets are good, but not distinctive,” said Bo Carson, vice-president of research for the Research Triangle Regional Partnership. Carson brought both current and futuristic figures with him in the form of a Power Point presentation on the first day of the Vance-Henderson Economic Development Commission’s two-

day retreat. “We’re home to 13 counties,” he explained to a lot of representatives of community stake-holders, as well as members of the EDC, the City Council and the county’s Board of Commissioners. “I handle all projects that come into the region,” Carson said. County population growth annually over the last five years included:

Arrests on drug charges From STAFF REPORTS


A line of inflatable horse-drawn hearses sits behind rows of tombstones on the lawn of Steve Vandall and Neal Carroll’s home on Gholson Avenue Wednesday night.

Here’s a house that’s really decorated By ASHLEY STEVEN AYSCUE Dispatch Photo Editor

Looking for a house that’s really decorated for Halloween? Take a drive along Gholson Avenue to see the home of Neal Carroll and Steve Vandall. Their lawn is covered in tombstones, webs, inflatable hearses, a skeletal organist and even a witch stationed by the front door. Don’t stay too long getting your Halloween candy, or a bat with red eyes may swoop down from the top of the porch and bite you. “It took us most of the day last Sunday to decorate the majority of the yard,” said Carroll during a short interview Thursday morning. “We still aren’t finished, we have been adding a few things every day since.” Carroll and Vandall have lived on Gholson Avenue for more than 10 years. They started building their bounty of decorations over the last few years but didn’t display them on a major scale until last year. “We usually would have had the decorations up sooner,” explained Carroll, “but we are a week behind because of a trip and bouts with the flu.” “Neighbors started asking if we

The eyes of the witch light up at the first sound of visitors at the door. were even going to decorate this year.” They have gotten really good responses from those around them and the community. A few neighbors even asked if they could help with performing scares and tricks on Halloween night. According to Carroll, the display will be visible Friday and Saturday nights, including handing out candy and treats during regular trick-or-treating hours Saturday. The display will go dark after Halloween night, as Carroll and Vandall will take their decorations down and put them in storage until next year.

“We enjoy Halloween, and just wanted to give back to the community because a lot of people turn off their lights at Halloween,” said Carroll. Despite their community goodwill, Carroll and Vandall got an unhappy trick performed on them Tuesday night when one of their first inflatables went missing. “We had an eight-foot-tall pumpkin with three ghosts coming out of the top, stolen,” said Carroll. “But we’re not going to let it dampen our Halloween spirit.” Contact the writer at

Strickland: Book goes behind scenes By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer

OXFORD — Frank Strickland said he has published a book about Oxford’s government and politics because he wanted to record some of what has gone on “behind the scenes.” “It’s always nice to say a lot of good things about a town, but it’s important also to remember the bad things that happened in town and to ensure that history is not repeated over and over again,” said Strickland, who is conducting his third consecutive campaign for mayor. “We’ve had some serious problems in the Police Department, especially



over the years, and, in my opinion, continue to have ‘em,” Strickland said. “And I think it’s important that people really know what happens.” Strickland, while making clear he has much to say in his publication about several persons, is particularly critical of Mayor Al Woodlief, Police Chief and Acting Fire Chief John Wolford and the previous city manager, Tommy Marrow.



Woodlief could not be reached for comment Thursday. Marrow, who is presently manager of Butner’s government, also could not be reached for comment Thursday. On Thursday, this reporter offered Wolford a chance to comment after seeing Wolford park his car along Williamsboro Street and start walking across the street toward the rear entrance of the Granville County Court-

The Henderson Police Department Narcotics Unit has arrested two people on drug charges, Chief Keith L. Sidwell said Thursday night in a press release. David Lee Davis of 934 Elm St. was charged with possession with the intent to manufacture, sell and deliver marijuana, manufacture of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Davis’ bond was set at $20,000, with a hearing set for Dec. 21. According to police, Davis previously was convicted of three felonies for drug offenses. Syreea Gill of the same address was charged with the manufacture of marijuana. Gill’s bond was set at $5,000, with a hearing set for Dec. 21. The arrests followed the discovery of four pounds of marijuana and drug paraphernalia during a search of the Elm Street address. Police also had received complaints of drug activity in the area.

The board was to begin meeting in private this morning before voting on a decision in public. It could exonerate the Easley committee, the party, or both groups, or issue fines in additional to referring the case to prosecutors. Referring the case to the Wake County district attorney would be difficult because Colon Willoughby is a longtime friend to Easley, requiring a possible independent prosecutor to be called. And the statute of limitations on misdemeanor election law violations has passed.

to the State Board of Elections that the party kept track of how much money Easley’s campaign raised for the party and the party had final control over how they were spent. Falmlen said the party decided to pay for Easley campaign expenses and that was legal. He says Easley campaign officials never asked for a cut of party funds they raised to pay for Easley campaign activities, which would be illegal. The board will rule whether the party and Easley’s campaign broke election laws.

RALEIGH — The personal attorney for former North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley has made an unusual request to the State Board of Elections — please send Easley’s case to prosecutors if necessary. Thomas Hicks gave closing statements Thursday to the board, which is investigating Easley’s campaign committee and the state Democratic Party. Hicks said Easley told him to ask board members to send the case to a prosecutor if there are questions whether laws

were violated. Hicks said otherwise the public will believe “Easley has slipped one over on the board.” Easley and political ally McQueen Campbell gave different testimony this week about campaignrelated flights Campbell piloted for Easley. The board also could issue fines or exonerate the party and the committee. Earlier Thursday, the former executive director of the North Carolina Democratic Party said there was no dedicated bank account for money then-Gov. Mike Easley raised for the party.

Deaths Eva E. Banks WARREN COUNTY — Eva Evans Banks, 78, died Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2009, at Maria Parham Medical Center in Henderson. She was born Sept. 9, 1931, in Mecklenburg County, Va., to the late Major and Polly Evans. She was educated in the Warren County public school system. At an early age, she was baptized and joined Burchette Chapel United Church of Christ in Manson where she was a faithful member until her health declined.

GM extends refund program By EMILY FREDRIX AP Marketing Writer

MILWAUKEE — General Motors Co. says its moneyback guarantee — key to its revival — is going so well it will extend the program into early 2010. The automaker launched its “May the Best Car Win” campaign in September as a way to get consumers to try GM cars and trucks with minimal risk. Consumers have been leery of the Detroit company since it filed for bankruptcy protection earlier this year. The program, which offers refunds within 31 to 60 days of purchase, was slated to last two months and end Nov. 30. But it will now last until Jan. 4, 2010. Jay Spenchian, GM’s executive director of the marketing strategy support group, told The Associated Press on Thursday that more people are considering GM’s four brands — Chevrolet, Cadillac, GMC and Buick — and few vehicles have been returned. “We’re starting to see big consideration changes and opinion changes,” he said. That’s what the company was hoping for when it created the campaign, which includes advertisements comparing GM vehicles to those of competitors. The nation’s largest automaker needs to improve sales so it can repay billions in government loans and stay in business. Spenchian said October’s numbers appear to be up. GM on Wednesday said it is likely next week to post its first year-over-year monthly sales gain in 21 months. Consumers have been holding off on big-ticket purchases in the recession, and even if they are spending, they’ve been reluctant to buy from GM, which emerged from bankruptcy protection this summer. So GM has been airing 17 television ads for its different brands, including the

Chevrolet Malibu, the Buick Lacrosse and GMC Terrain, comparing them with competitors and asking consumers to pick the best car. Andy Norton, general director, global consumer and product research, said one ad featuring the Lacrosse tested very well and showed consumers are thinking about Buick in a more positive light. Analysts say that the Buick brand has lacked a defined niche in the market and left consumers confused. In December, GM will

take the campaign to print, comparing more of its cars in ads mainly in magazines, but also in newspapers.

Doctors may have a new treatment for swine flu that’s already on pharmacy shelves — cholesterollowering statin drugs like Lipitor and Zocor. Researchers reported Thursday that people who were already on these drugs when they caught seasonal flu and had to be hospitalized were twice as likely to survive than those not on such medicines. That’s not proof that statins are a cure for flu. More study is under way to see if the drugs might

be a good treatment. The study, presented at a medical meeting in Philadelphia, involved 2,800 patients during the 20072008 flu season. Statins have long been known to reduce inflammation along with cholesterol. Much of the damage that flu causes, whether it’s seasonal or the new H1N1 virus, is from inflammation, an overreaction by the immune system as it fights the virus. “It’s very promising,” said the study’s leader, Dr. Ann Thomas of the Oregon Public Health Division. Previous studies also

235 Dabney Drive • Henderson

have found that statins may help people survive pneumonia and serious bacterial bloodstream infections. The new research, sponsored by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is the first large one in the United States to look at statins for flu. Treatment is a crucial issue for swine flu, as the vaccine is slow to reach the public. Flu medicines like Tamiflu are being reserved for only the sickest patients. Statins are cheap, relatively safe and among the most widely used drugs in the world.

was convicted of raping and kidnapping in 1976, as well as a Southern California man who says he is Dugard’s biological father. Katie Callaway Hall and Kenneth Slayton said they want to support Dugard even though they have not spoken with her, and that monitoring the proceedings was their way of ensuring that Garrido is punished. Callaway Hall was kidnapped in her car and driven to a Nevada storage shed where Phillip Garrido raped her for hours. He served 11 years in prison for the attack before being released on parole. She said it said it was harder than she expected to see Garrido again up close. “The same old fear came back that I felt 33 years ago,” she said. “I feel so incredibly passionate about this. I am going to make sure this time he goes away forever.” The Associated Press does not identify rape victims as a matter of policy, but Callaway Hall has come forward to tell her story publicly, as have the Dugards. Slayton claims to be

Dugard’s father but says he has never met her because he did not know she existed until he briefly became a suspect in her 1991 kidnapping. He was more blunt about his feelings toward Garrido. “I just wanted to rip the guy’s face off,” Slayton said. “I would go ahead and take care of business right now.” Slayton has retained a lawyer of his own to help him establish his paternity and what he hopes is the opportunity to forge a relationship with Dugard, who has been staying in a secret Northern California location with her mother and daughters since she resurfaced in late August. “Is it ever too late to be a father?” said Slayton, who is married and has two other daughters. “I am here because Jaycee Lee Dugard needs a father. She needs a masculine role model.” The lawyer, Gloria Allred, said Dugard’s mother, Terry Probyn, so far has not tried to dispute that Slayton is the father, but has not permitted him to be in contact with her.

N.C. judge says his removal recommended CHARLOTTE (AP) — A North Carolina judge says a state panel has recommended his removal for misconduct after allegations he failed to resign as a corporate board director and fought with another judge. Mecklenburg County District Court Judge Bill Belk told WCNC-TV he learned Wednesday the Judicial Standards Commission recommended his removal. Belk did not return a call Thursday to The Associated Press. The grandson of the Belk department store chain’s founder says he expected the rebuke. He says he has been targeted for trying to reform the court system. Judicial Standards Commission executive director Paul Ross says he can’t confirm any possible recommendations to the state Supreme Court, which would decide Belk’s fate.

Four arraigned in alleged gang rape of girl in Calif. By TERRY COLLINS Associated Press Writer

RICHMOND, Calif. (AP) — Four teenagers face adult charges in the alleged gang rape of a 15-year-old girl outside her Northern California high school’s homecoming dance. Defendants Manuel Ortega, 19, Cody Ray Smith, 15, Ari Abdallah Morales, 16 of and Marcelles James Peter, 17 were arraigned Thursday in Contra Costa County Ortega Superior Court. Smith pleaded not guilty in the case, while the others didn’t enter a plea. All four will be back in court next week. Flanked by deputies and wearing bulletproof vests, Smith, Morales and Peter

were each charged with rape in concert and sexual penetration with a foreign object, along with special circumstances that could make them eligible for life in prison. They were charged as adults because of the severity of the crime, prosecutor Dana Cashman said. Morales is also charged with robbery. Ortega also is charged with robbery and assault causing great bodily injury. A fifth suspect arrested, Salvador Rodriguez, 21, also remained jailed but has not been charged. Richmond police said they’re still looking for more suspects in the Saturday night attack, which may have involved more than two dozen people watching as the girl was raped for two hours. A fifth suspect remains in custody but has not yet been charged.

Supremacist asks for death penalty SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — An Orange County jury has recommended the death penalty for a white supremacist gangster who asked to get on death row because he believes its prison amenities are better. Prosecutors say jurors Thursday recommended death for Billy Joe Johnson in Superior Court in Santa Ana. Johnson was convicted earlier this month for the murder of Scott Miller.

Prosecutors say Johnson took Miller to an alley where two other men shot him for divulging gang secrets during a TV interview. Johnson is serving a 45-year-to-life sentence. To try to convince the jury that he deserved death, Johnson testified he’s killed two other people. His attorney says the 46-year-old figures that by the time his appeals run out, he’ll be 65 or 70 years old and won’t want to live anyway.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — NASA says the booster rocket used in a test flight was badly dented when it fell into the Atlantic. The new Ares I-X rocket was launched on a brief flight Wednesday. NASA officials said Thursday that the first-stage booster was found to be dented near the bottom when it was recovered from the ocean. NASA spokesman Allard Beutel says there’s still no official word on whether all three parachutes on the booster deployed properly. A parachute failure could account for the damage. The Ares I-X is a prototype of what’s supposed to replace the space shuttles and ultimately fly to the moon. The White House, though, may nix those plans. Shuttle managers, meanwhile, have chosen Nov. 16 for the launch of Atlantis on a space station mission.

Nicolas Cage’s father, August Coppola, 75, dies LOS ANGELES (AP) — Nicolas Cage’s father, literature professor August Coppola, has died. He was 75. Coppola is the brother of filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, and he taught literature and served as dean of creative arts at San Francisco State University. Cage spokeswoman Annett Wolf said he died Tuesday after a heart attack. Besides Cage, Coppola is survived by sons Chris-

Calif. jury awards $16 million in radio contestant death SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A Sacramento County jury has awarded $16.5 million to the family of a 28-year-old woman who died after participating in a radio station’s water-drinking contest. Jennifer Strange, a mother of three, died of acute water intoxication in January 2007 after the challenge to see which contestant could drink the most water without going to the bathroom. A Nintendo Wii video game system was the prize for winning the “Hold Your Wee for a Wii” contest. On Thursday, jurors found Philadelphia-based Entercom Communications Corp. and its Sacramento subsidiary liable for the actions of its employees at Sacramento radio station KDND-FM. The station fired 10 employees after the death. During the trial, Entercom argued that Strange should have known the contest could be dangerous.

Hundreds arrested in Ky. prescription crackdown LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky officials say more than 300 people have been arrested and 200 more charged in a crackdown on illegal trafficking of prescription drugs. It’s the largest drug sweep in state history. Bob McBride with the U.S. Attorney’s Office says the sweep is trying to stop a massive influx of pills from other states, such as Florida. He says methadone and OxyContin are among the most prevalent drugs.

Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rodney Brewer says the roundup is the result of a threeyear investigation.

Suspects sought in Los Angeles synagogue shooting LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say a 17-year-old high school student is no longer a suspect in a shooting that wounded two men as they arrived at a North Hollywood synagogue. Police had detained the teenager near the temple on Thursday morning because he matched a loose description of the attacker, who was described as a black man wearing a hoodie. Police Detective Steve Castro says the student has no connection to the shooting that took place Thursday in the parking garage near the Adat Yeshurun Valley Sephardic Orthodox synagogue. He says police are investigating leads and a motive for the attack. Castro identified the victims as 38-year-old Mori Ben-Nissan and 53-year-old Allen Lasry. Both are in good condition at local hospitals after being shot in the legs.

Feds still searching for suspects By ED WHITE Associated Press Writer

DETROIT — Federal authorities in Detroit say the son of a slain leader of a radical U.S. Sunni Islam group has been arrested across the border in Windsor, Ontario. The FBI says 30-yearold Mujahid Carswell was arrested Thursday by local police in Windsor. No other details were released. He was considered armed and dangerous. Carswell was among 11 people charged Wednesday in a criminal complaint in federal court in Detroit. Their leader, his father, 53-year-old Luqman Ameen Abdullah, was killed in a shootout with agents. Andrew Arena, the head of the FBI office in Detroit, says the men follow “a very hybrid radical ideology” that mainstream Muslims “would not recognize.” Two were still at large: 30-year-old Yassir Ali Khan of Warren and Ontario, and 33-year-old Mohammad Philistine of Ontario.

Our Opinion

Time to seek education, and a place to find it At a time of historic economic woe, Americans are recognizing education as the path out of hardship. The Associated Press reports that a record high of about 11.5 million Americans ages 18 to 24 — nearly 40 percent of all people in the age group — attended college in the fall of 2008. Virtually all of the 300,000-student increase came in America’s community colleges, and those schools are expected to grow again this year. The American Association of Community Colleges reports enrollment growth rates of 10 percent and higher at schools nationwide. Are we finally getting smart? Or do some of us simply have no other choice? When there are few jobs to be had, some folks collect unemployment and mope. It is encouraging to see that a growing number — particularly among our younger set — are seeing the benefits of an education. While the recession has carved jobs out of all sectors, including white-collar workers, it always seems to be the blue-collar crowd that bears the brunt. The bad economy, of course, also sends older workers back to school. A lost job and lots of time on their hands can be a depressing setback, but it also can be an opportunity. And community colleges — where average tuition runs around $2,372 compared to $7,020 at four-year schools — is the most affordable way. We are fortunate in the Tri-County area to have Vance-Granville Community College. For 40 years, VGCC has provided collegetransfer courses to prepare students for a four-year degree, continuing education for businesses, and technical education in fields such as law enforcement, occupational health care and other programs. Unfortunately, our region didn’t experience the economic highs of the 1990s felt by much of the country, and we seem to be suffering at least as badly if not worse during outright recession. But in either case — be it economic hard times or a period of relative plenty — getting an education is always a good idea. And local residents are lucky to have VGCC as a good place to start.

Quotable “Americans’ health care is too important to risk on one gigantic bill that was negotiated behind closed doors. The Medicare cuts will hurt seniors, the tax increases will kill jobs and the government takeover of health care will increase premium costs.” — Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich, in a statement after House Democrats reached agreement on key elements of a health care bill that would vastly alter America’s medical landscape, requiring virtually universal sign-ups and establishing a new governmentrun insurance option for millions. “I want you to know this fight is not Pakistan’s alone. These extremists are committed to destroying what is dear to us as much as they are committed to destroying that which is dear to you and to all people. So this is our struggle as well.” — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, at a news conference in Pakistan after suspected militants exploded a car bomb in a market crowded with women and children, killing 100 people.

To the editor:

Hands of experience show mastery in manly art of the gun The current nip of autumn air and her multicolored shower of leaves bears great import for many a man in these rural parts. Hunting Season. Nature’s autumn transition, a catalyst to the rut, doesn’t solely announce hunting season’s arrival. A stop by any convenience store this time of year provides quite the dose of wild game conversation — the seasonal tales of man against animal. Turkey-shoot signs decorate lawns, such as my community’s volunteer fire department. And the Friday shoot’s rounds of fire further advertise this most macho of seasons. Whether driving down the road or skimming the aisles of your local Walmart, the seasonal signs are abundant. Camouflage is the “color of the day” every day, and spotlighting is the activity every night. Aware of its necessity, yet not eager to participate in population control, I am not a hunter. Not for the living, that is. Curiosity seized me a few days ago when a comrade, aware of my attitude toward the sport of hunting, approached me with the following question: “Well, have you ever shot skeet?” Reared in a house of women, save the one man — my dad — who sought refuge in the communion of convenient store camaraderie (a whole other column), I replied to my friend that I had never shot skeet. I’d barely shot a gun. And so, following a skeetshoot invitation from Comrade, I joined the male breed for a bit of outdoor sportsmanship in Wise, Warren County. The drive to Wise ended as Comrade parked his pickup near an open field, where a congregation of boys and men, cousins of all ages, gathered by the tailgate for afternoon greetings and ammunition inspection. Shotguns were readied for the afternoon’s shoot. Dipping my fingers into a jar of pickled okra, I observed the scene — the phenomenon of male companionship and weapon-worship. My afternoon snack was abruptly interrupted as Comrade grabbed my arm, along with his trusty gun.

“You ready?” he questioned, as my stomach growled, hungry for more of the okra I’d left behind. The cousins all gathered to watch my first shooting lesson. “Alright — shoot!” came the order. And so I aimed … I shot … and I miserable-missed. As Comrade and I continued our practice, (and I continued to fail), another truck pulled Gina up to the field and Eaves parked. Daily Disdpatch I’d met Columnist this fella before — Comrade’s brother. Slick, all of 21 years, poked his chest as he reached for his gun in the back of his truck, and then joined the growing company of boys, men, and firearms. My lesson soon ended, and the brothers’ rivalry began. Comrade fired a shot and missed. “You know,” Slick said, “it must be real embarrasin’ to miss like that … to know that I’m a better shot than you.” He laughed, encouraging the competition. “I’d be ’shamed!” Senior, resting in a folding chair behind the line of ammunition, shook his head as his sons’ banter began. “It’s O.K., little brother,” came the retort. “We know whose bank account’s the biggest.” I glanced at Senior again — we both shook our heads this time. My previous pessimism for skeet-shooting disappeared as I watched the two brothers fire one shot after another, hitting some of the speeding clay targets and missing most. As the number missed increased, Slick and Comrade’s shots became more sporadic. The skeet-shoot resembled more of an ill-attempted firing squad. “What was that?” Senior laughed, as Slick and Comrade fired about five or six shots a piece, and missed the lone target. There are instances in which the world stands still — one’s

breathing silences, and a moment is catalogued in memory … a moment dedicated to only the likes of legends. All shots silenced as guns were lowered. The boys looked to the dusty drive leading to the field. Like one of those scenes from an old Western, an older gentleman walked the trail towards our group. Ol’ Wise, himself. The man, handsomely gray and thin, a bit rugged in fact, approached the line of men. Ol’ Wise reached for a shotgun, simultaneously piling a wad of chewing tobacco under his lip. No verbal communication was required — only his authoritative stare — commanded the cousins to ready the skeetthrower. And with one slow, but precise move, Ol’ Wise shot the first target. And then he hit the next. And the next. Ol’ Wise didn’t have the swift, erratic motions of Slick or Comrade. Nor did he have their youth. But Ol’ Wise had skill. Awed by his accuracy, I glanced back at Slick and Comrade. Here I was, taking lessons from these two brothers, when I had Ol’ Wise standing right before me. I wondered how many hunting seasons Ol’ Wise had seen come and go, how many turkey shoots he’d won, or how many tales he’d told in the convenience store. And as expeditiously as this legend began his round of shots, blasting every “pigeon” that took to the air, he lowered the shotgun, handed it to Comrade, and slowly departed the group of speechless men. As Ol’ Wise retreated into the sunset, I think I finally understood hunters’ reverence for the sport — the lure of the seasonal tradition. What I’d considered merely man’s fixation with guns and a connection with nature is, in fact, more complex. Yet it’s fairly simple. It’s also about generational folklore. It’s about the legends.

Upon first hearing Commissioner Danny Wright’s explanation for why he will not vote for zoning, it does sound like a great defense of democracy. “He represents his district’s wishes.” However, there are two elements that suggest something different. One, great leadership in our country has always been found where leaders do what is good for the people even when the people do not want it. (“Profiles in Courage.”) Like a doctor giving a shot to a patient who does not want it. Our leaders are elected to make the hard decisions for the good of all of us. Second, from what I have read in the paper, the people of his district do not want the water project either, but he voted for that one. Every study, every discussion of economic development in the last fifteen years has recommended zoning for this county. Every prosperous county along I-85, from north to south, has zoning. We do not and we are the economically depressed county. My mother used to ask me if everybody wanted to jump off a bridge would you jump. Sometimes great leaders need to do what they know needs to be done even if their district says they are against it. Rick Brand, Henderson

Local News

STRICKLAND, from page one 2005 contest in which Wolford’s alleged misconduct became an issue. Strickland again opposed Woodlief in 2007 and is again opposing Woodlief in a Tuesday contest in which departing City Commissioner Steve Powell, an educator, additionally is seeking election to the top position as a write-in candidate. The winner will serve a two-year term. Powell, when contacted by the Dispatch on Thursday, said he has a copy of Strickland’s publication. Powell said that there is some documentation in the publication “that does lend itself to some questions that need to be answered.” Powell said he is not really comfortable with saying what he thinks about those things at the present time “because I don’t think it would be helpful to my campaign.” “But, I do think that there are some things that bring, shed a different light on conversations and information that has been shared previously,” Powell said. Powell, while emphasizing he has not had the chance to quietly read the entire text and do his own research because he has been busy with own campaign, said from what he has read, “There seems to be some issues that would catch the attention of people who — would bring some questions to mind.” “Now, I don’t know whether it’s accurate or not, but there are some documentations that appear to be very accurate,” Powell said. Strickland said he had been working on the publication for approximately the past six months. “And for the last couple of months I’ve been so busy at work I didn’t have much of a chance,” Strickland said. “And I thought that it was important that I get this book out as soon as possible.” The publication includes clippings from newspapers, along with e-mails, letters and portions of minutes of past City Commission meetings. And there is correspondence calling for City Hall to take a second look at goings-on in municipal government and at the Police Department. “Of course I was ignored, always because of the Privacy Act,” Strickland said, arguing such an exemption to open records laws does not cover documents considered to be public. Strickland was asked about the most stunning part he has found in his inquiries and in his speaking out about Oxford government. “The fact that some people will go to any extreme to avoid the truth,” Strickland replied. “I think it’s very interesting that a lot has been said about a lot of things in public, but, then, behind the scenes, there’s a whole lot more that’s being said that people never hear.” And, according to Strickland, “They’ll tell you one thing in public, but they’ll you something different when you’re one on one.” Strickland in the publication does call former Police Chief Roger Paul “the best chief of police” in Oxford’s history and does praise former City Commissioners Carolyn Hardy, Jack Carey, Alice Currin and Clement Yancey.

Strickland additionally calls Yancey “the epitome of a Southern gentleman.” The title of the publication is “The Rest of the Story,” which is a play on the famous line of now-deceased nationwide broadcaster and commentator Paul Harvey. Strickland provided this reporter with a rough copy of the publication earlier this week and said he circulated approximately five rough copies because he wanted friends to take a look and provide their thoughts. Strickland said comments varied from praise for his having putting a lot of work into the publication to “I don’t know how it will affect the election.” “But, that’s not the important thing. This is not about the election. This is about what goes on and what has been done and said about people who run for public office,” Strickland said. Strickland said he will charge $5 per copy of the publication. “And I will deliver,” Strickland said. Strickland was chief of police at Meredith College in Raleigh until retiring last week. Strickland said that his retirement will not become official until the end of the year and that he will remain on call, but that,

“I’ve left a really good person in charge,” a reference to Eddie Wheeler, who was his assistant chief. Contact the writer at bwest@ Editor’s notes: Strickland’s publication includes clippings of news stories by this reporter. The publication additionally includes a reference to a criticism of this reporter, which was posted on the Internet and signed by Woodlief. This was after a story about alleged corruption in the Police Department and after a story providing the latest on a lawsuit by fired police administrative assistant Sharon Iglesias. Strickland made the reference to Woodlief in a document he provided to City Hall after Commissioner Walter Cantley had asked Strickland whether he had specifics to prove his claims against Woodlief.

OXFORD — Steve Powell said he is humbled by the support he is receiving to write him in for mayor. “I mean, it’s going very well,” Powell said, adding that his campaign has distributed approximately 3,500 pieces of literature. “And it’s been very encouraging.” One feature of Powell’s campaign is the use of Cyberspace, particularly the social networking site Facebook, to help get the word out. And a video of Powell on Thursday evening became part of his Facebook link. “We’re going to be very, very energized,” Powell said earlier Thursday of

Powell, who announced his candidacy for mayor at the start of October, at the time said that, if he is elected, this will not affect his ability to serve as a leader of the organization. Powell has said his reason for running for mayor is because he had been contemplating ways of trying to help the entire city get better and of trying to do something that would enhance the lives of people. Oxford’s mayor serves a two-year term. Powell, while acknowledging the position of mayor is limited to casting tie-breaking votes on the commission, said a mayor does have the power of influence.

Everyday we’ve got something going on,” Powell said. The election is Tuesday, with the One-Stop Early Voting process to end Saturday. On the ballot are Mayor Al Woodlief and 2005 and 2007 opponent Frank Strickland. Powell had decided at the end of July not to seek re-election to another four years on the seven-man City Commission. Powell at the time said he, his wife and Rev. “Coach” Rick Alexander formed a six-county nonprofit organization called Youth and Parent Empowerment.

Obama considers scaling down war in Afghanistan By ANNE GEARAN and MATTHEW LEE Associated Press Writers

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is considering sending large numbers of additional U.S. forces to Afghanistan next year but fewer than his war commander, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, prefers, U.S. officials said. Such a narrowed military mission would escalate American forces to accomplish the commander’s broadest goals, protecting Afghan cities and key infrastructure. But the option’s scaled-down troop numbers likely would cut back on McChrystal’s most ambitious objectives, amounting to what one official described as “McChrystal Light.� Under the pared-down option, McChrystal would be given fewer forces than the 40,000 additional troops he has asked for atop the current U.S. force of 68,000, officials told The Associated Press on Wednesday. Senior White House officials stressed, however, that the president has not settled on any

new troop numbers and continues to debate other strategic approaches to the 8-year-old Afghanistan war. The officials say Obama has not yet firmly settled on the narrowed option or any other as his final choice for how to overhaul the war effort. Obama is likely to hold off on making a decision until after Afghanistan’s presidential runoff election on Nov. 7, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Thursday in Pakistan. Two officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because Obama has not announced his decision, said the troop numbers under the narrowed scenario probably would be lower than McChrystal’s preference, at least at the outset. The officials did not divulge exact numbers. The stripped-down version of McChrystal’s plan still would adopt the commander’s overall goals for a counterinsurgency strategy aimed at turning the corner against the Taliban next spring. But that pared-down approach would reflect a shift in

thinking about what parts of the war mission are most important and the intense political domestic debate over Afghan policy. A stripped-down approach would signal caution in widening a war that is going worse this year than last despite intense U.S. attention and an additional 21,000 U.S. forces on Obama’s watch. Fourteen Americans were killed Monday in Afghanistan in two helicopter crashes, and roadside bombings Tuesday left eight U.S. troops dead. October has been the worst month for U.S. fatalities since the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan began in October 2001. Even if McChrystal gets less than he wants from Obama, the U.S. may still end up adding more troops later in 2010. The most likely reason would be to fill voids left by some NATO allies who have been considering troop cutbacks. Defense Secretary Robert Gates has pushed back hard against a faction of administration officials, led by Vice President Joe Biden, who contend

that much of the U.S. national security objective in Afghanistan could be accomplished by concentrating on strikes at al-Qaida along the Pakistan border. That approach would hunt terrorists with techniques such as missile-loaded pilotless drones, and could require little or no additional U.S. manpower. Gates has bridged both sides, officials said. Long wary of a large U.S. presence that could too easily look like an occupation army, he has suggested recently that he could support a carefully designed expansion. Obama meets Friday with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the military leaders who would have the responsibility for carrying out his strategy decisions. White House officials said the president will continue to consider his options with advisers over the next couple of weeks, adding that other broad war council meetings may still be called during that period. Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is on record supporting a troop increase. He has not quantified his

preference, but he signed off on McChrystal’s assessment of the worsening conditions in Afghanistan and the need for a change in approach and boost in manpower. Gates has not given a public opinion on McChrystal’s request but has pushed for the commander’s overarching strategy during recent weeks of review by the White House, officials said. “I think that the analytical phase is ... coming to an end,� Gates said last week in Europe. “Probably over the next two or three weeks we’re going to be considering specific options and teeing them up for a decision by the president.� As for McChrystal, he already begun carrying out elements of his targeted counterinsurgency plan, which focuses on the volatile south and east of the country and emphasizes protecting civilians even if it means allowing individual militants to escape. McChrystal’s recommendations got broad endorsement from NATO defense chiefs last week, with the suggestion that some nations will increase troops or other resources.

Dear Abby

News From The Light Side FRIDAY Morning / Early Afternoon 10/30/09

Today is Friday, Oct. 30, the 303rd day of 2009. There are 62 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight: On Oct. 30, 1938, the radio play “The War of the Worlds,” starring Orson Welles, aired on CBS. (The live drama, which employed fake breaking news reports, panicked some listeners who thought the portrayal of a Martian invasion was real.) On this date: In 1945, the U.S. government announced the end of shoe rationing, effective at midnight. In 1961, the Soviet Union tested a hydrogen bomb, the “Tsar Bomba,” with a force estimated at about 50 megatons. In 1974, Muhammad Ali regained his world heavyweight title by knocking out George Foreman in the eighth round of a 15-round bout in Kinshasa, Zaire, known as the “Rumble in the Jungle.” In 1975, the New York Daily News ran the headline “Ford to City: Drop Dead” a day after President Gerald R. Ford said he would veto any proposed federal bailout of New York City. In 1979, President Jimmy Carter announced his choice of federal appeals judge Shirley Hufstedler to head the newly created Department of Education. Ten years ago: Fifty-four people were killed in a fire inside a fourstory building crowded with weekend shoppers and diners in Incheon, South Korea.

Five years ago: The decapitated body of Japanese backpacker Shosei Koda was found wrapped in an American flag in northwestern Baghdad; the militant group led by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi later claimed responsibility. One year ago: A federal jury in Miami convicted the son of former Liberian President Charles Taylor in the first case brought under a 1994 U.S. law allowing prosecution for torture and atrocities committed overseas. (Charles McArthur Emmanuel was later sentenced to 97 years in prison.) Today’s Birthdays: Actor Dick Gautier is 72. Movie director Claude Lelouch is 72. Rock singer Grace Slick is 70. Songwriter Eddie Holland is 70. Actor Ed Lauter is 69. R&B singer Otis Williams (The Temptations) is 68. Actor Henry Winkler is 64. Rock musician Chris Slade (Asia) is 63. Country/ rock musician Timothy B. Schmit (The Eagles) is 62. Actor Leon Rippy is 60. Actor Harry Hamlin is 58. Actor Charles Martin Smith is 56. Country singer T. Graham Brown is 55. Actor Kevin Pollak is 52. Actor Michael Beach is 46. Rock singer-musician Gavin Rossdale (Bush) is 42. Actor Jack Plotnick is 41. Comedian Ben Bailey is 39. Actress Nia Long is 39. Country singer Kassidy Osborn (SHeDAISY) is 33. Actor Gael Garcia Bernal is 31. Actor Matthew Morrison is 31. Actor Shaun Sipos is 28. Actor Tequan Richmond (“Everybody Hates Chris”) is 17.

Karina is hurt and upset that I don’t want to continue sharing a room with her, pointing out that we’ve been “roommates” our entire lives and get along well, so why argue with success? It has nothing to do with her. I just think it would be easier to expand our horizons if we’re not just known as “the twins.” We would still see each other often, and if things don’t work out perhaps we can be roomies the following year. My mother is shocked and thinks there’s something wrong between us. I would appreciate another opinion. — THE OTHER TWIN DEAR TWIN: Have a private talk with your mother and explain that as much as you love your sister, the time has come for both of you to explore your individuality. While the concept may be foreign to her, what you are contemplating would be a healthy opportunity for both of you. As the daughter of an identical twin, I can assure you that some degree of separation will be healthy and give you both a chance to grow.



DEAR ABBY: My daughter insists that she’s a “multitasker” -- too busy to telephone or text except when she’s driving. It scares me to be in the passenger seat while she’s talking on the phone or picking up toys the baby has dropped from his car seat. I told her I won’t talk to her while she’s driving because I don’t want to be a party to an accident she might be involved in, so she has stopped calling me altogether. Don’t these selfdescribed multitaskers realize they are operating machines that can kill them or others Dear while they shift their Abby focus from Universal Press the road? Syndicate A man recently died in a head-on car crash as he crossed the interstate line. When the emergency vehicles arrived, his laptop was still running. What else can I say to my daughter when she doesn’t “want to hear about it”? — TERRIFIED MAMA IN CALIFORNIA DEAR TERRIFIED: The statistics I have read indicate that drivers using cell phones have the same risk of being involved in an accident as people who have been drinking. It is sad that your daughter is so overscheduled that she feels she must do two things at once. However, until your daughter is ready to sharpen her maternal instincts, grow up and stop being defensive, there is nothing you or anyone can say that will cut through the static. I am truly sorry.

Heels upset Hokies with last-second FG

Jayhawks take top spot in preseason poll

By HANK KURZ Jr. AP Sports Writer

By JIM O’CONNELL AP Basketball Writer

For the second time in its storied basketball history, Kansas is No. 1 in The Associated Press’ preseason Top 25. The Jayhawks were a runaway choice Thursday, receiving 55 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel to easily outdistance Michigan State, which was No. 1 on five ballots. There was little suspense as to which team would top the preseason poll. Kansas has all five starters and the top nine scorers back from last season’s team that went 27-8 and reached the third round of the NCAA tournament. The Jayhawks also feature a recruiting class considered among the nation’s best. “I’m not surprised,” said Bill Self, who was also the coach the other time Kansas was the preseason No. 1 in 2004-05. “But I know this — we aren’t practicing like a team that’s preseason No. 1 in the country. It has been a very few good days of practice but we do have good players. ... There’s a lot of excitement surrounding these guys.” The Jayhawks received great news when guard Sherron Collins and center Cole Aldrich, last season’s leading scorers, decided to return to school rather than test the NBA draft. Then brothers Xavier and C.J. Henry decided to enroll in Lawrence, making the Jayhawks the early national favorite as well as the choice to win a sixth straight Big 12 title. “My goal for this team isn’t to play to that ranking early in the season,” Self said. “My goal is to play to that ranking when it counts the most. I hope it happens soon.” Michigan State has seven of the top nine scorers back from the team that lost to North Carolina in the national championship game. Texas, Kentucky and Villanova rounded out the top five, while North Carolina, a unanimous preseason No. 1 last season, was sixth. Kentucky received three firstplace votes and Texas and North Carolina got one each. Purdue, West Virginia, Duke and Tennessee completed the top 10. While Kansas’ showing this preseason many not have been as impressive as North Carolina’s a year earlier when it became the first ever unanimous preseason pick, both had plenty of reasons to claim No. 1.

BLACKSBURG, Va. — Casey Barth kicked a 21-yard field goal on the final play and North Carolina stopped No. 14 Virginia Tech all night in a 20-17 victory on Thursday night. The Tar Heels (5-4, 1-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) got their first conference win after forcing a fumble by Ryan Williams at his own 24 with 2:02 left and turning it into the winning drive. The Hokies (5-3, 3-2), who until

losing to No. 11 Georgia Tech 12 days ago were in the national championship picture, lost their second straight. Virginia Tech for the first time in six meetings with North Carolina since joining the ACC in 2004. The Tar Heels held Virginia Tech to just 95 rushing yards and limited Williams, the nation’s No. 7 runner with an average of 119 yards, ineffective for most of the game.

Raiders fall short in upset bid at Chapel Hill By KELLEN HOLTZMAN Dispatch Sports Writer

CHAPEL HILL — The fourth time wasn’t the charm for Southern Vance. After losing to Chapel Hill three times in Carolina 3A play this season, the No. 3-seeded Raiders fell in a five-set thriller to the second-seeded Tigers in NCHSAA third-round play. Chapel Hill won nine of the 10 sets between the two sides in regular season and conference tournament meetings. Southern

was no pushover this time, forcing a fifth set after the Tigers went up 2-1. But the Raiders came up short in the final frame, giving Chapel Hill the 3-2 (18-25, 25-12, 25-13, 25-27, 158) win. Turner The loss ends an impressive run in the playoffs for Southern (18-12), which knocked off Western Harnett in the first round before upending

No. 1 seed Southern Guilford. “We felt like, ‘it’s the playoffs. It’s a new season,’” said Southern coach Tracey Turner. “I think they had that playoff mentality when they stepped into the gym tonight.” The Raiders started out strong in the fifth set, taking a 4-1 lead on a kill from Julia Sumner. But the Tigers roared back to an 8-4 advantage of their own. Southern cut the lead to 9-6 Please see RAIDERS, page 3B

MOORESVILLE (AP) — NASCAR placed driver AJ Allmendinger on probation Thursday following his arrest early in the morning on a charge of drunken driving. Mooresville police said Allmendinger failed a field sobriety test after he was pulled over. Late Thursday afternoon, he was placed on probation until the end of the year for actions detriAllmendinger mental to stock car racing. Allmendinger, who drives the No. 44 for Richard Petty Motorsports, said in a statement he had drinks with dinner on Wednesday and made a mistake by driving afterward. “I honestly felt fine, but I obviously should have erred more on the side of caution, particularly given what I do for a living,” Allmendinger said. “It was a bad judgment call and I apologize for that.” Allmendinger registered 0.08 on the breath test, the police report said. Under North Carolina law, that means his license will be automatically suspended for 30 days. NASCAR spokesman Ramsey Poston said the sanctioning body does not require a valid driver’s license to compete on the circuit. Under the probation, any type of further infraction, on the track or off it, could lead to a more severe punishment. “I am deeply disappointed this has happened,” team coowner Richard Petty said. “AJ has accepted full responsibility for his actions and will work to make this right. On behalf of everyone at Richard Petty Motorsports we sincerely apologize to our fans and partners.” Allmendinger is a major factor in RPM’s long-range plans, and team officials told The Associated Press that Allmendinger was going to be moved into Petty’s famed No. 43 next season. Best Buy is expected to sponsor the car.

New York’s Jorge Posada hits a run-scoring single during the seventh inning of Game 2 of the World Series Thursday.

NEW YORK — Mark Teixeira and Hideki Matsui shook the New York Yankees from their lumber slumber and sent the World Series to Philadelphia all tied up. Teixeira and Matsui hit solo homers off familiar foe Pedro Martinez, backing a sharp performance by A.J. Burnett and giving the Yankees a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 2 on Thursday night. A night after getting stopped by Cliff Lee in the opener 6-1, the Yanks bounced back from an early deficit and won in the Series for the first time since taking a 2-1 lead against Florida in 2003.

New York’s Mark Teixeira, right, is congratulated by Derek Jeter after hitting a home run during the fourth inning of Thursday’s game. After a day off, Game 3 will be at Philadelphia on Saturday night. Light-hitting Matt Stairs put the Phillies on top with an RBI single in the second. Burnett

then used a biting curveball to keep Philadelphia from advancing another runner past second base against him. Please see GAME 2, page 3B

NBA Bobcats pick up third-year opion for Ajinca CHARLOTTE (AP) — The Charlotte Bobcats are picking up the third-year, $1.22 million option on the contract of center Alexis Ajinca for the 2010-11 season. The move announced Thursday comes two days before the deadline. The Bobcats wavered on Ajinca’s future as he has failed to fit into Charlotte’s rotation. A native of France, the 7-foot Ajinca was the 20th pick in the 2008 draft. He played in only 31 games last season and averaged 2.3 points. Bobcats coach Larry Brown then criticized his play and effort when he watched him try out for the French national team last summer. Ajinca had four points in 10 minutes of Charlotte’s 92-59 season-opening loss to Boston on Wednesday.

College Hoops Knight turns down HoF invite from Indiana BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Former Indiana coach Bob Knight will not attend next week’s induction into the athletic department’s hall of fame. Athletic director Fred Glass said Thursday that Knight contacted him directly to decline the invitation. Glass said Knight was concerned that the interest in him would be a distraction from the other six inductees. All living members of the 2009 Hall of Fame class, except Knight, are expected to attend in person. The General won a school-record 662 games and three national championships at Indiana before being fired by then university president Myles Brand in September 2000. Knight retired in 2008 with the most wins (902) of any coach in Division I men’s basketball.

NHL Penguins’ Malkin sidelined with shoulder injury PITTSBURGH (AP) — NHL scoring champion Evgeni Malkin will be lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins for two to three weeks because of a strained right shoulder. Malkin had been attempting to play through the injury, but coach Dan Bylsma said the team decided to rest the center. The Russian star would miss seven games if he is out two weeks and 10 games if he is out three. The injury will end Malkin’s streak of 254 consecutive regular-season games played. The Penguins play Friday at Columbus. “It’s early in the season. It’s fine,” Malkin said. “I feel good. It’s not a big problem.”

NBA to investigate new accusations by Tim Donaghy By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

NEW YORK — The NBA will review accusations by former referee Tim Donaghy that were posted online — even though the publisher is blowing the whistle on the book they were to appear in. Random House said Thursday it won’t go forward with the tell-all Donaghy wrote in prison. “After a close legal review of the final manuscript of “Blowing the Whistle” by Tim Donaghy, and our independent evaluation of some of the author’s sources and state-

ments, Triumph Books and Random House have decided not to go forward with the book’s publication,” spokesman Stuart Applebaum said in a statement. “Our decision is wholly our own and was made without consultation with any outside parties or individuals.” Still, the NBA said the allegations that appeared on the Web site deadspin. com will be forwarded to Lawrence B. Pedowitz, who conducted the review of the officiating program following the Donaghy gambling scandal that rocked the league in 2007. “As with all allegations concerning the integrity

of our officiating program, these latest assertions by Mr. Donaghy will be turned over to Mr. Pedowitz for a complete review,” senior vice president of communications Elizabeth Ventura said. The league also said it has been reassured that the Pedowitz investigation, which was completed last fall, found Donaghy to be the only official involved in criminal conduct. Donaghy admitted taking cash payoffs from gamblers for picks on games, including ones he officiated. He was sentenced to 15 months for conspiracy to engage in wire fraud and

transmitting betting information through interstate commerce. He worked on the book in prison. The excerpts include accusations of wagering between officials working games, favoritism toward star players, and desires by the league to extend playoff series. Donaghy, who already made similar allegations during court proceedings, also criticizes a number of referees, including Dick Bavetta, Tommy Nunez and Steve Javie, of misconduct. The referees say they are disappointed but not surprised by their former colleague’s actions.

days past his 38th birthday, was nearly as effective as the 32-year-old Burnett, fooling the Yankees with breaking pitches of 70-75 mph. In his first Series start since winning Game 3 for Boston five years ago, he allowed three runs and six hits in six-plus innings, striking out eight and walking two. There were a few muted chants of “Who’s Your Daddy?” but nothing like the booming taunts that serenaded Martinez when he came to New York in his final weeks with Boston in 2004. That was after he famously said, “I just tip my hat and call the Yankees my daddy” following a loss at Fenway Park. After singles by Jerry Hairston Jr. and Melky Cabrera put runners at the corners and no outs in the seventh, Martinez came out, pointing at the sky, tapping a fist on his heart and smiling at the crowd. Jorge Posada pinch hit for Jose Molina and singled up the middle off Chan Ho Park for a 3-1 lead. Several moves by Yankees manager Joe Girardi paid off. Molina made his fourth straight postseason start as Burnett’s personal catcher and picked off Jayson Werth at first base after a

leadoff single in the fourth — the Phillies next-to-last baserunner off Burnett. Hairston made his first postseason start for the Yankees as the replacement for Nick Swisher, batting just .114 (4 for 35) in the postseason. Hairston, who hadn’t started in right field since July 21, had good numbers against Martinez (10 for 27) but had not faced him since 2004. Philadelphia broke on top for the second straight game. Raul Ibanez blooped an opposite-field double just on the left-field line with two outs in the second. Stairs, who took over at designated hitter when Ibanez shifted from DH to left in place of Ben Francisco, followed with a one-hop single off the glove of Rodriguez at third. A-Rod could have come up with the smash by Stairs, who had been in a 4-for-51 (.078) slide dating to July 1. Since June 25, Stairs’ only RBIs had been on a solo home run against Pittsburgh on July 11 and a grand slam at Washington on Sept. 10. Ibanez made a diving catch on Robinson Cano with a runner at first in the second to prevent a possible RBI double.

The Tar Heels had done virtually nothing on offense until midway through the second quarter. On a drive that covered 84 yards in 13 plays, Yates hit Greg Little for 17 yards, Little ran for 23 around the right side to the Hokies 16 on a third-and-3 and Yates hit Jheranie Boyd for 13 yards in the right corner to make it 7-0 just 2:44 before halftime. Williams went around the right side for 25 yards

on the first play, and Taylor hit Jarrett Boykin for 20 yards on the second, but Tar Heels cornerback Charles Brown stripped the ball from him and Kendric Burney recovered for North Carolina at its own 27 yard-line. The Hokies also drove to the Tar Heels 38, 34, 37 and 35, 40 and got nothing. They finished the half with just 108 yards on 29 plays and Taylor was sacked three times.

GAME 2, from page 1B Teixeira, in an 8-for-44 (.182) postseason slump, tied the score when he led off the fourth with a drive into the Yankees bullpen in right field. Matsui then put New York ahead with two outs in the sixth, reaching down for a curveball below his knees and driving it a few rows into the seats in right. Burnett got his first win following three postseason no-decisions for the Yankees, allowing four hits in seven innings and retiring his last eight batters. He struck out nine, — including Ryan Howard three times — and started his first 11 hitters with strikes, nine of them looking. Burnett kept his control, walking two, one of them intentional. Mariano Rivera got six outs for his 38th postseason save, his 10th in World Series play. After the Phillies put two on with one out in the eighth, Game 1 star Chase Utley grounded into an inning-ending double play. He fanned Howard looking starting the ninth — the Philadelphia slugger’s first four-strikeout game since July 21 — then struck out Stairs with a runner at second to end it. Philadelphia, seeking to become the NL’s first repeat Series champion

since the 1975-76 Reds, lost for just the fifth time in 22 postseason games. The Phillies managed three runs in 14 innings off two starters, CC Sabathia and Burnett. New York won despite getting nothing from Alex Rodriguez. After carrying the Yankees in the playoffs against the Twins and Angels, he is 0 for 8 in his first Series appearance and struck out three times for the second straight night. When the Series resumes, Cole Hamels starts Game 3 for the Phillies against Andy Pettitte in an all-lefty matchup. Both teams will be making the trip through New Jersey by train. Twenty-eight of the 53 teams that won Game 2 to tie the Series went on to win the title — but just one of the last six, the 2002 Angels. There was another umpiring controversy. With two on and one out in the seventh, first base ump Brian Gorman ruled Howard reached down, caught Johnny Damon’s liner and turned a double play. A slow-motion replay appeared to show the first baseman gloved the ball on a short hop. The always entertaining Martinez, pitching four

HEELS, from page 1B season and Deunta Williams recovered, setting the Tar Heels up at the Hokies 24. After six carries by Ryan Houston got it to the 4, Barth’s second field goal finished off the big upset. T.J. Yates, who was knocked out of the Tar Heels 20-17 loss to the Hokies last season, finished 18-for-28 for just 131 yards, but made all the big throws his team needed. He hit Jheranie Boyd from 13 yards in the first half for the game’s first points, and Greg Little from 15 yards as the Tar Heels answered immediately after the Hokies tied it. Yates did make one big mistake, throwing a dump pass that Rashad Carmichael intercepted at the North Carolina 11, setting up the second of Tyrod Taylor’s two touchdown runs. That gave the Hokies a 17-14 lead with 11:51

left, but Yates engineered a 16-play, 78-yard drive to a tying field goal and then the defense, fittingly, made a big play to get the win. The Hokies finished with just 256 yards and 11 first downs. They finally came to life with their first possession of the third quarter, and a huge play by Taylor early in the drive saved it. Facing a third-and-17 from his 11, Taylor dodged pressure and rifled a 22-yard pass to Dyrell Roberts for the first down. Taylor followed with passes of 16 yards to Danny Coale and 15 to Xavier Boyce, Williams ran for 22 to the Tar Heels’ 14 and Virginia Tech needed seven plays to punch it in. Taylor did that on fourth-and-goal from the 1 to tie it at 7. The Hokies other scoring drives covered 35 yards to a field goal and 5 yards to a TD.

RAIDERS, from page 1B and 11-7, but Chapel Hill wouldn’t be denied, winning the set 15-8. “We were watching each other rather than attacking the ball,” said Turner. “I felt like we beat ourselves more than they beat us.” Sumner, Ashley Meador, Katelyn Moore, Shauna Terry, and Tremanisha Taylor all took the court for their final time as Raiders. “How do you not miss a Shauna Terry and a Tremanisha Taylor? Powerful on the net, powerful on the attack,” Turner said of her seniors. “And a setter like Julia. Julia is awesome. She’s probably the best all-around volleyball player on the team.” “Replacing them is going to be very difficult, replacing that chemistry and confidence.” After being out-scored 50-25 in the second and third sets, Southern completed an improbable comeback in an up-anddown fourth set. Jeanna Gentry gave the Raiders a lift off the bench with a kill to put Southern ahead 10-9. The Tigers went ahead 13-11 before the Raiders got within one and then tied it on a Taylor block. Southern seized control of the set after a pair of Chapel Hill errors gave the Raiders a 21-18 advantage. With Taylor serving, Southern stretched the lead to 23-19. The Tigers rallied and tied the game on two straight kills from Katlyn Layden. Terry gave the Raiders a lead three different times before a little luck came their way on the final point.

Below: Southern’s Amber Edwards spikes the ball over the net during Thursday’s game. Taylor sent a ball over the net that the Tigers dug out — however, the ball made contact with a raised basketball goal hanging over the court. The ball bounced downward and hit the floor untouched, giving Southern the set. “You can always use a little bit of luck,” Turner said of the play. “That’s the magic of the game. When you’re in it and you’re fighting, you get those points if you continue to fight.” Southern was competitive early in the third set before a Chapel Hill rally put the game away. The Raiders pulled within 1612, but the Tigers reeled off seven straight points to extend the lead to 11 and ultimately win the set 25-13.

Chapel Hill never trailed in the second set after taking a 2-1 lead. Southern closed within 11-6, but couldn’t get any closer. “We weren’t communicating and we were just committing unforced errors,” Turner said. Similar to its second-

round matchup with Southern Guilford, the Raiders set the tone for the match with a first-set victory. Southern scored the first three points and maintained momentum throughout the set. The Raiders went ahead 15-14 and never relinquished the lead. Terry gave Southern a 23-18 lead before an ace from Sumner and a kill from Morgan Adcock sealed the set. “We kind of caught them on their heels,” said Turner. “We took advantage of it. We attacked. We covered floor and we kept the ball coming back at them.” Chapel Hill (24-5) came into the match with three conference losses ­— all to Cardinal Gibbons. The Tigers’ combination of size and heavy-hitting attackers kept Southern off balance for a fourth straight time. “It’s hard. I told them to keep the ball away from them,” Turner said of defending against Chapel Hill. “In the second and third, they outattacked us. We were getting the ball back over, but they were positioning themselves, getting the ball to the setter and pounding it.” The Tigers will face the winner of Cardinal Gibbons and Orange on Saturday. Terry led the Raiders with 22 kills, 10 digs, two blocks, and an ace, while Taylor had 10 kills, a block and two aces. Sumner closed out her setting career with 31 assists to go with two kills and an ace. Amber Edwards led the defensive effort with 20 digs and added two

Wisconsin braces for Favre’s return By NANCY ARMOUR AP National Writer

Tennessee quarterback Vince Young passes against Indianapolis during the fourth quarter of their Oct. 11 game.

Young gets the nod at QB for Tennessee By TERESA M. WALKER AP Sports Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams wants more of Vince Young. He’s getting just that with his winless team switching from veteran Kerry Collins back to the 2006 Offensive Rookie of the Year. Coach Jeff Fisher announced the expected move Thursday following practice for the 0-6 Titans, and Young got the news from his coach in the morning. Fisher insists it was an organizational decision resulting from the team’s winless start and that he won’t play musical chairs with the position. “We’re in a unique situation right now. We haven’t won a game. We wouldn’t be having this conversation if we were 3-3,� Fisher said. That means Young will start Sunday against Jacksonville (3-3), the team that helped send him to the bench in the 2008 opener by picking him off twice and spraining his knee. Collins started 20 of the 21 games since then. Young has eight career interceptions against Jacksonville with only three touchdown passes. He also has more career interceptions (33) than TD passes (22). But he has won five of his last six starts and is 18-11 as a starter. Young thanked Fisher for giving him a chance to sit back, develop and learn from Collins. “For him to give me a shot again to go out and give it a chance again is big for me because I’ve been waiting,� Young said. The move appeared inevitable since the Titans lost 59-0 at New England on Oct. 18. Adams told The Tennessean newspaper after that loss in New England that he wanted to see more of Young. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2006 draft split the work evenly with Collins at practice Wednesday but took all snaps with the first-team offense Thursday. Collins wasn’t happy or surprised by the move, which came a day after

the Titans started prepping for their next game. “When you’re 0-6, then heads are going to roll. More times than not, it’s the quarterback,� Collins said. Young started the meaningless regular season finale at Indianapolis last December, so this will be his first start under pressure since that 2008 season opener. It’s a game best known for Young being booed by the home fans and refusing at first to go back on the field until prompted by Fisher. Young sprained his knee a few plays later, then sparked a police hunt the next day when he drove off from his home with a gun in his car. The quarterback blamed his mother for overreacting. “If we win, it’s going to be good,� Young said. “If we lose, it’s all going to be Vince Young’s fault. I just want to go out and play and get my rhythm back and put smiles on my coaches’ faces and my teammates’ faces and definitely the fans.� Collins led Tennessee to a 13-3 record and signed a two-year deal in the offseason to return as the starter. He hasn’t been helped by at least 18 drops by his receivers. But the Titans are off to a start that is their worst ever under Fisher, and Young is the quarterback the franchise drafted No. 3 overall in 2006 with a $4.25 million bonus due in March. He also is slated to count $14.2 million against the salary cap if on the roster in 2010. Linebacker Keith Bulluck said the start wasn’t Collins’ fault. “We’re going with V.Y., and I’m happy for him in the sense that he’s someone who lost his spot and had to sit back, take a back seat, be humbled out a little bit but has learned a lot in that time. I’m kind of looking forward to see how he’s grown as a player,� Bulluck said. Young replaced Collins in 2006 in the fourth game of an 0-5 start, and the Titans wound up winning eight of their final 11 that season to just miss a playoff berth.

GREEN BAY, Wis. — For almost 20 years, Brett Favre was like a member of every Wisconsin family. To be from Wisconsin is to be a Green Bay Packers fan, and the fun-loving quarterback rejuvenated the storied franchise, brought the Lombardi Trophy back to Titletown and turned “Cheesehead� from an insult into a boast. That he liked to hunt, fish and, in the early days at least, have a beer or two, well, his birth certificate may have said Mississippi but he was Wisconsin to the core. No wonder an entire state is angst-ridden over Sunday’s game at Lambeau Field against the Minnesota Vikings, the Packers’ loathsome rival — and Favre’s new team. “I have a real problem with that. It was hard enough to see him with the Jets. But to see him in purple?� Tammy Rainville asked, watching her 9- and 7-year-old sons collect autographs outside the Packers’ parking lot Thursday afternoon. “I still believe he belongs to us.� There are no bystanders in the ugliest divorce in Wisconsin history, with the mere mention of Favre’s name enough to start squabbles this week between old friends, husbands and wives, parents and children. Those who support Favre think he should be appreciated for all the fun — and victories — he gave Wisconsin in his 16 years here, and blame Packers general manager Ted Thompson for his departure. Those on the other side say no one person is bigger than any organization, and that it’s no longer possible to be both a Favre and a Packers fan. Especially if he’s wearing a Vikings jersey. “I’m a Packers fan, so as far as I’m concerned, whatever it takes to win the game. If it takes knocking him out to win the game, that’s fine with me,� Dave Meyer said as his wife, Phyllis, shook her head. “I think that’s horrible,� she said. “Brett has done so much for the community over the years.� Wisconsin, and Green Bay in particular, has a bond with the Packers unlike anything else in pro sports. Oh, there are Bucks and Brewers fans across the state, and Wisconsin and Marquette each have their share of followers. But the Packers are like family, even for those who don’t have stock in the country’s only publicly owned professional team. The waiting list for season tickets has more than 80,000 names on it, and parents often put their newborns on it. If they’re lucky, they’ll get tickets when they’re, oh, about 30. Neighborhood kids gladly give up their bikes for players to ride during training camp, and Packers banners

Minnesota quarterback Brett Favre reacts during the second half of the Oct. 5 game against Green Bay in Minneapolis. If the way Packers fans have reacted to in-stadium video highlights of the Vikings’ games earlier this season is any indication, this much is clear: Brett Favre will be booed loudly in his return to Lambeau Field on Sunday. are more popular than American flags around Lambeau Field. There are oversized replicas of the Lombardi Trophy in the yards of two houses across from Lambeau. Try finding one of those babies in any other city in the country, let alone two of them. “When you’re in Green Bay, you’re a rock star,� said former Packers strong safety LeRoy Butler, a member of the 1996 NFL champions who still spends most of his time here, recently buying a car dealership near Green Bay and running a foundation that supports women with breast cancer. “You can feel like the Jonas Brothers with a bunch of 16-year-old girls running behind you. You go to your home state, you hear crickets,� Butler said — and he grew up in the football hotbed of Florida and played at Florida State. And no one was more beloved here than Favre. Green Bay, for all its titles and success under Vince Lombardi in the 1960s, went through a long streak of awfulness in the 1970s and ’80s. The Packers had 15 losing seasons in the 24 years after winning the second Super Bowl, and none of their quarter-

backs — Jerry Tagge, John Hadl, Lynn Dickey, David Whitehurst, to name a few — came close to living up to Bart Starr’s legacy. Then, in 1992, the Packers traded for that brash kid from Mississippi. He took over in Game 3 when Don Majkowski got hurt, and Green Bay, Wisconsin — the whole NFL, really — was never the same. The Packers made the playoffs in 11 of Favre’s 16 years in Green Bay, winning the Super Bowl in his fifth season and making it back the next year. He had one losing season. “He’s the best thing that ever happened to Green Bay,� fan Steve Kohler said. “I can’t see how people can boo him.� But it’s because Favre

was so cherished, gave so much to the Packers, that his departure cuts so deeply. Favre retired after the 2007 season in a tearful news conference, only to announce a few months later that he really did still want to play football. The only problem was, the Packers had already elevated Aaron Rodgers to the starting job. An ugly back-and-forth ensued, and Green Bay eventually traded Favre to the Jets. He retired again after last season and then unretired — to play for those hated Vikings. Minnesota was, most fans assume, where Favre wanted to go all along. Though he denies it, most believe he and Thompson didn’t see eye to eye, and that was the real reason for his (first) retirement. By going to a division rival, Favre could exact a measure of revenge on Thompson. In the process, though, he’s exacting revenge on the very fans who adored him. “If he’d have come back with any other team, we’d have had a parade for him,� Butler said. “We’d have had hot air balloons, dog shows, everyone in the state would be wearing a No. 4 jersey. But when you come with the Vikings? I mean, that’s bad. I don’t know that there’s anything worse than that. “It’s almost like divorcing your wife,� Butler added, “and then marrying her sister.�

Albert Pujols: ‘I want to be a Cardinal’ but “if they come tomorrow and say ’Albert, you know, we want to lock you up,’ hey they know that we’re open to that.” Pujols also praised the hiring of Mark McGwire as the team’s new hitting instructor. Manager Tony La Russa said he talked to Pujols about McGwire before hiring the former home run champion. McGwire has no coaching experience but Pujols said that wasn’t necessary. The 46-year-old McGwire has worked in the

terview with a Dominican radio station earlier this month. “I’m not desperate to sign a contract extension. I still have one year remaining in my contract for 2010 and a club option for 2011. I leave the rest in God’s hands,” Pujols told CDN 92.5 FM. The two-time NL MVP said he wanted the Cardinals to concentrate on signing Matt Holiday and other free agents first.

offseason in past years with several major league hitters, including Holliday and Skip Schumaker of the Cardinals. “He’s going to teach guys how to play the game. He’s going to say to the guys, ’This is what I have to offer you,’ and hopefully they’ll put it together and hopefully it will work,” Pujols said. “I’m looking forward to that, knowing he’s going to bring that hitting experience into the organization and hopefully we’ll learn.”

Delhomme claims he’s a “hermit” during the season and shuts out the criticism. What’s bothering Delhomme is that with a 56.5 passer rating and Carolina’s league-worst minus-14 turnover margin, he’s let down his teammates. “I haven’t played well enough for them. That means more than anything else,” Delhomme said. “I’ve always felt that I’ve kind of been one that they can lean on in the tough situations and to fight through and I haven’t done that enough this year. That’s something that’s bothersome.” Delhomme’s downward spiral started in January, where he turned in one of the worst performances by a quarterback in playoff history with five interceptions and lost a fumble in an upset loss to Arizona. He then got a contract extension — only to commit five more turnovers in Week 1 this year. Most teammates have rallied behind him, either because they truly believe he can again be the QB that’s led Carolina to numerous comeback wins or they realize his confidence is fragile. Delhomme said he was “almost numb” after the Buffalo loss and Fox said Monday they needed to get confidence back in the passing game. “The team collectively has to be better around him. Not all the interceptions are his fault,” tight end Jeff King said. “We all collectively have to pick up our game as does he.” Receiver Steve Smith, held without a touchdown this season, was more guarded after Fox’s decision to keep the status quo. “Jake is the guy,” Smith said. “It’s not my call.” It’s unclear if Delhomme will have a shorter leash Sunday against the Cardinals. The team is trying to make things simpler for him after new quarterbacks coach Rip Scherer focused on Delhomme’s unorthodox mechanics in the preseason. Delhomme’s best moments this season have come when he’s had to improvise in the 2-minute offense. Now Delhomme will get yet another chance to show he hasn’t completely lost it against the Cardinals, the team in which the horrible stretch began. “It’ll be full circle if we go out and play well,” Delhomme said. “It’d be a nice thing.”


















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

(Answers tomorrow) TWINE MYSELF JITNEY Jumbles: MERGE Answer: How the teens got along when they met at the pool — “SWIMMINGLY”


Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll wisely listen to the unspoken messages people send you today. Something that seems negative in the moment will help you become better and keep you on track. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There was a time in the not-too-distant past when things came easier. It might just feel uphill both ways today. That’s about to change, but when it does, don’t lose the fortitude you’ve developed. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The words you speak have a way of coming to pass. Even those offhanded expressions hold some power. You could have an epiphany about something you often say, realizing what it actually means for the very first time. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You do what you want to do, your way. That’s the natural order. When someone tries to boss you around, nip it in the bud. Make it known from the beginning that it isn’t going to work. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Some people make friends wherever they go. You are one of those people. So don’t be surprised when one of those new acquaintances turns out to hold a key to your career’s future. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You haven’t been doing anything that different lately, but for some reason you have more energy for your work, plus some left over for those you care about. Vitality sometimes comes in waves, and right now you’ve definitely got it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ve been considering an upgrade of your transportation situation, but you’ve been waiting for just the right moment. Pick out a color — that moment is near. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). An unexpected gift brings a momentary reprieve from financial pressure. It’s just a patch, not a plan. But do enjoy the stroke of good luck while you think about other ways you might make a bit more dough. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You learn something about your boss that makes him or her seem a little more relatable to you. You realize that beneath the roles we are compelled to play, we are all just people who need people. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Ask a friend for assistance. As hard as it is to do, the people who love you genuinely want and need to help. Giving will fill them with purpose. They just need the opportunity. Give them one. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Remember when you used to draw? There’s something therapeutic and anciently human about putting a seen or imagined picture to paper. Scribble for fun. It will release your true playful nature. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What do you do when you’re dancing to the beat of your own drummer and he starts playing a waltz? Why, you find a partner, of course. Then dance your way into a dreamy evening.
