O’Geary addresses countywide water talks By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer

Mayor Pete O’Geary at the start of Monday evening’s City Council meeting read a prepared statement saying that he felt compelled to respond to remarks that the city is not working fairly with Vance County for the sale of water for the proposed countywide water system. O’Geary said that there have been many comments made in the local media

Evans against privatized trash pickup By WILLIAM F. WEST

Daily Dispatch Writer City Councilwoman Mary Emma Evans proclaimed her opposition to privatizing the municipal sanitation service, saying, “I’m just not buying it.” Evans, playing on an old adage in saying, “If isn’t broke, we don’t need to try to fix it,” believes what Henderson has is better than what the city would get from Waste Industries, which was the lone company to submit a proposal for the collection of household garbage and recyclables. And Evans said that, according to the customers she has heard from, they are satisfied with the service provided by the city and that she believes the city is thinking about a few dollars over sanitation employees.

Mayor says city is working with, not taking advantage of, Vance County via letters to the editor and in conversations in the city. “Normally, I do not publicly address such comments; however, for the sake of transparency and good intergovernmental cooperation, I feel that I must do so now,” said O’Geary, who was elected Henderson’s chief execu-

tive in October 2007. County voters in May 2008 narrowly approved going to a countywide water system. Henderson, Oxford and Warren County are partners in the Kerr Lake Regional Water System, with Franklin County being a customer of Henderson.

O’Geary, in his statement, said that, first, Henderson is very supportive of Vance County’s efforts to build a countywide water system and that development of this type of infrastructure can only help the county and the city move forward in the future. Secondly “and quite

importantly,” the city has never once and will not tie countywide zoning to the sale of water, O’Geary said. “Both are important issues and both are separate issues that must stand on their own merits,” O’Geary said. Thirdly “and equally important,” the city is not trying to “hold up” the county on how much it must pay for water, O’Geary said. Please see O’GEARY, page 3A

Vance board updated on new school By AL WHELESS Daily Dispatch Writer

Besides approving final interior colors for the new elementary school Monday night, the Vance County Board of Education also got a construction update on the facility. The various hues that were chosen were for Building 200, which will house the second and third grades, and for Building 300, which will be for the fourth and fifth grades. As of two weeks ago, the overall project was 50 percent complete, according to Brad Williams, a representative of Hite Associates, a Greenville architectural firm. He said the school should be finished in June of 2011, and ready to open for business two months later. Williams gave the board this progression list: • Site Work — 90 perDaily Dispatch/ASHLEY STEVEN AYSCUE cent completed within the next three to four weeks.

Dabney Elementary volunteers (above) plant some of the 38 azaleas awarded to the school. (At right) Zeb Vance Elementary School staff members are shown as they plant some of the 50 azaleas received by their school near the front entrance.

Two local elementary schools get a boost to beautification projects Zeb Vance Elementary School and Dabney Elementary School have been selected by N.C. Beautiful’s 24th annual Azalea Celebration to receive azaleas for beautification projects at the schools. At Zeb Vance, a special beautification prize of 50 azaleas was awarded for use in the group’s 2009 Beautification Project. “We are very lucky to have been selected to receive this grant to help support our beautification project at Zeb Vance,” said Anne Garrison, principal. “We recently have completed the installation of a walking path around our school grounds, and are also continuing to work on a memorial garden to honor two of our students

who have passed away, Tyler Moss and Jamarri Johnson. This will be completed soon, and we will be able to then have our dedication ceremony. The azaleas look great, and we can’t wait for our students, staff and community to be able to enjoy this wonderful atmosphere of health, fitness and remembrance. Garrison also thanked the Vance County Schools’ Maintenance Department for their continued support throughout the path installation, and more specifically, with the removal of the overgrown landscaping at the entrance to Zeb Vance. “Without their support and assistance, this project would not have been able to be completed,” she said.

Dabney Elementary School was also selected by N.C. Beautiful to receive 38 azaleas for use in the group’s 2009 beautification project. Katherine Reed, chairperson of the school’s beautification committee, was very excited when she received notification that Dabney had been chosen. The committee has made extensive plans to improve the school campus and to make it look more attractive. Both awards are part of N.C. Beautiful’s 24th annual Azalea Celebration, which rewards North Carolina community groups for improving their communities through creative landscape projects. The annual Azalea Celebration, developed

“While negotiations continue, the proposed sale price has always been, and still is, less than that established for both Kittrell and Franklin County,” O’Geary said. “The lower rate is based on the fact that the county will be a large volume user for 40 years and the county’s success in developing its water system is good for both the county and the city’s future economic well being,” O’Geary said. And O’Geary cited one of the municipal government’s core values: “We value a good working relationship with the county of Vance and be-

lieve by working together in a cooperative effort we can better address the strategic challenges and opportunities facing our community.” “It is in this spirit that we will continue to work with and negotiate in good faith with the county regarding the proposed countywide water system,” O’Geary said. “It is also in this vein that we will continue to seek to meet with the county to discuss solutions for more equitable funding formulae for the several joint programs provided by both jurisdictions,” O’Geary said.

“Finally, we will always seek to work with the county to address opportunities that help improve the lives of our citizens and the quality of life within our community,” O’Geary said. No one on the County Commission has come up with specific figures at the regular commission meetings. The county’s focus has been on the creation of four water districts, obtaining grants and getting county residents to sign onto the system.

Oxford City Commissioner Paul Kiesow said the northern Granville County town of Stovall, which gets its water from Oxford, was not mentioned. Donham said Stovall will have to be in sync with Oxford. Henderson City Manager Ray Griffin credited Lipscomb with bringing the distribution officials together, starting in September. And Griffin noted Lipscomb has started an eightpoint process for improving the water that is coming out of the plant. “We’ve also talked about modeling the system to look at our times that water goes throughout the system” because the system has become so spread out, Henderson Assistant City Manager Frank Frazier said. Lipscomb told the Dispatch that Franklin County has had a couple of high readouts of TTHM, but that their levels have not been consistently high. Lipscomb said the next samples will be taken in January. The Kerr Lake Regional Water System is a partnership of Henderson, Oxford and Warren County. Henderson is selling water to Franklin County and Vance County voters in May 2008 narrowly agreed to a countywide water system.

service “percentage wise is pretty much the way it is across the state on that part of it.” The proposal calls for shifting from backdoor service to curbside service, with exceptions for those who are physically challenged. “But, this is where we are today,” said Frazier, who along with Leyen is continuing to recommend going with Waste Industries. The Dispatch will follow with a report about public comments made at the meeting against privatizing the service.

Evans made her remarks at Monday evening’s council meeting and at the end of another presentation by Assistant City Manager Frank Frazier and Public Works Director Linda Leyen. Frazier, in response, said that the city has “some very dedicated employees” and that the city appreciates their work. Frazier additionally said he is sure there are people who want to continue having backdoor garbage pickup service, but he said there is a cost involved with continuing this. And Frazier said surveys show curbside

Of 10 sanitation employees that would be impacted if privatization is approved, three are temporary workers. Waste Industries would need three workers with a commercial driver’s license and the remaining four workers will be offered a reassignment within the city’s operations or their positions will be eliminated by attrition. Evans said she hoped her fellow council members would consider

The Daily Dispatch

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Mutual of Omaha may have had its own “aha moment.” The insurance company has decided to settle its lawsuit against Oprah Winfrey’s production company over rights to the phrase. Jim Nolan, a spokesman for Mutual, and Angela DePaul, a spokeswoman for Winfrey’s Chicago-based Harpo Productions Inc., would only say Monday that the case was resolved amicably. Documents filed last month in U.S. District Court in Omaha do not outline details of the settlement. Mutual and Harpo began sparring earlier this year after Mutual starting using the slogan “official sponsor of the aha moment” in a national advertising campaign. Harpo asked Mutual in a letter to stop using “aha moment” to promote its insurance and financial products because it didn’t want confusion about whether there was a relationship between Mutual and Winfrey. Winfrey’s representatives argued in April that the phrase was synonymous with Winfrey and her show. Mutual responded with the lawsuit and documents showing it had obtained preliminary approval of a federal trademark. The insurance company said it conceived its slogan in February 2008 and unveiled the Web site www. ahamoment.com a year later. It began researching trademark rights to “aha moment” in July 2008 and filed an application with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office that August. Mutual said no opposition was made to its trademark application, and preliminary approval was granted in April. Mutual originally asked the court for a legal declaration allowing it to use the slogan and pronouncing that Mutual has not infringed on Harpo’s or Winfrey’s rights. Harpo never filed a formal response to Mutual’s lawsuit. Mutual asked for the lawsuit to be dismissed last month, and the judge entered his ruling Oct. 22. As part of its ad campaign, Mutual sent a crew on a 25-city tour to collect video stories of people describing a turning point in their lives when they realized something important. Visitors to Mutual’s Web site helped the insurance company pick ten of the “aha” stories to appear in television commercials starting next year.

Deadline in Google book deal extended to Friday SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A judge has given Google Inc. more time to revise a legal settlement that has drawn government scrutiny because it would give the Internet search leader the digital rights to millions of out-ofprint books. Under a change approved Monday, Google and groups representing U.S. authors and publishers now have until Friday to change an agreement reached more than a year ago. It marked the latest twist in a copyright lawsuit that the authors and publishers filed against Google’s digital book project four years ago. The revisions to the settlement were supposed to be filed by the end of Monday, but Google and its negotiating partners told U.S. District Judge Denny Chin they still needed to address objections raised in September by the U.S.

Justice Department. Chin signed off on the extension without comment. The Justice Department has warned it probably would try to block the current agreement from taking effect because antitrust regulators had concluded it threatened to thwart competition and drive up prices. Some of the Justice Department’s preliminary findings echoed concerns from a chorus of critics that include Google rivals Microsoft Corp., Yahoo Inc., and Amazon.com Inc. Google, based in Mountain View, Calif., had insisted the settlement merited court approval until the Justice Department raised red flags. In its current form, the settlement would entrust Google with a digital database containing millions of copyright-protected books, including volumes no longer being published.

The Internet search leader would act as the sales agent for the authors and publishers, giving 63 percent of the revenue to the copyright holders. The Justice Department believes the arrangement could lead to collusion that would raise the prices for digital books — a format that is expected to become increasingly popular with the advent of electronic readers such as Amazon’s Kindle. Google contends its plan to make digital copies of so many hard-to-find books would benefit society by making more knowledge available to anyone with an Internet connection. For that reason, the Justice Department has said it hopes an acceptable compromise can be worked out.

broad continuum of risk, and cigarettes are at the far risky end of that, and it’s possible to have far less hazardous products that would probably meet the needs for a very significant number of smokers,” Sweanor said. The possibility of a deal between Reynolds and Niconovum was first reported by the Wall Street Journal. Karl Olov Fagerstrom, an expert on smoking cessation and nicotine dependence, formed Niconovum in 2000, according to its Web site. Niconovum did not immediately return calls seeking comment. Reynolds American spokesman David Howard declined to comment. Reynolds, like all tobacco companies, is looking to cigarette alternatives such as smokeless tobacco for growth as demand for cigarettes has declined as taxes, health concerns, smoking bans and social stigma have increased.

Henderson Institute alumni chapter hears update on Vance County schools

Students take learning from classroom to concert hall

At the Henderson Institute Triad Chapter meeting in early October, Gloria J. White, chairperson, Vance County Board of Education, gave an informative talk on changes in the Vance County school system. Topics included the early college program, the decrease in public school enrollment due to the growing number of private schools and charter schools, and rezoning due to the closing of Clark Street Elementary and the opening of the new school (not yet named) on Garrett Road, which is scheduled for September 2010. Pictured with White is Louis Thomas, Triad Chapter program coordinator.

A group from Vance-Granville Community College poses outside Memorial Auditorium in Raleigh. More than a dozen VanceGranville Community College students recently moved their study of opera from the classroom to one of the state’s finest performing arts facilities. VGCC music instructor Michael Stephenson took a group of students, along with a few VGCC faculty and staff members, to Memorial Auditorium at the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts in Raleigh, to see Rigoletto, the opera by the 19th-century Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi. The opera was presented by the Opera Company of North Carolina at the opening of their 2009-2010 season. “This was the first opera performance that any of the students had ever attended,” Stephenson said. “It was a world class performance.” The students are enrolled in one of Stephenson’s three music appreciation classes — one taught at the college’s main campus, one taught at South Campus in Granville County and one taught online.

Daily Meditation What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Our Opinion

Life in prison not inherently cruel Supreme Court justices are often sharply divided. And frequently the cases under consideration have implications far beyond the fate of the specific plaintiffs or prosecution and defendants involved. On Monday, justices heard arguments on whether sentencing a juvenile to life in prison with no chance of parole is cruel and unusual punishment. At issue are two cases involving crimes committed by Florida teenagers. Joe Sullivan, now 33, was sent away for life after being convicted of the rape of an elderly woman; a crime committed when he was 13. Terrance Graham, now 22, received a life sentence for armed robberies committed when he was 16 and 17. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said that “because of immaturity, you can’t really judge a teenager at the point of sentencing.” Conservative justice Samuel Alito argued that a defendant who has committed rape perhaps deserves life in prison. We agree with both positions, and believe that is why a sentence of life in prison without possibility of parole can sometimes be a justifiable penalty, and certainly not cruel and unusual punishment. In the case of Graham, if nobody was hurt in the armed robberies he committed as a teenager, a life sentence might — someday — be deemed to have been too much. That could be for a future court or parole board to determine after he shows a large measure of rehabilitation in prison. But a 13-year-old who commits the very adult crime of rape — against an elderly woman, no less — is quite possibly already too dangerous a predator to ever be safely returned to society. Deeming a life sentence to be automatically cruel and unusual based on the offender’s age strips away the court’s ability to protect the public from the most dangerous of offenders. And that’s something that should never happen, regardless of the perpetrator’s age.

Quotable “This is an important milestone as the Iraqi people continue to take responsibility for their future. I want to congratulate Iraq’s leaders for reaching this agreement. The United States will continue to stand with Iraq as a strong partner and as a friend.” — President Barack Obama, in a statement after Iraq’s parliament passed a long-delayed law paving the way for the planned January election to go forward, sidestepping a crisis that could have delayed the U.S. troop withdrawal. “There is an accountability of their contracts, and there is a serious corruption in the implementation of those projects. And the responsibility for this corruption is (with) the international community. I am hopeful that by joint cooperation we will be able to overcome all these challenges.” — Afghan President Hamid Karzai, in a statement saying donor countries share some of the responsibility for rampant corruption in Afghanistan while also pledging that there would be no place for corrupt officials in his new administration.

When I was a kid, I went to Times Square and looked up at the billboards. They were massive. Biggest signs I ever saw. “How do you get up there?” I asked my grandmother. “You have to be famous,” she said. For the Mitch rest of my A lbom childhood, that was the Tribune Media mountaintop Services of celebrity. A billboard in Times Square. The fact that you had to crane your neck to see it, to squint into the blinding sun of fame, well, it was literally, figuratively and physically the top of the heap. On every visit, I took notice of what ruled the Times Square roost. Was it a new Broadway show? Was it someone modeling low cut jeans? Was it that famous coffee pot for A&P that opened

and emitted steam? Whatever loomed, it was larger than life. And now? Now it could be Phil. Or Jane. Or Irv. Or Tyler, Max, Freddy or Sam, your little brother, your next-door neighbor or the mailman. Thanks to a new promotion, you can be the giant face in Times Square — for 15 seconds. Andy Warhol was only slightly off.

What a great concept This new 25-story opportunity comes courtesy of American Eagle, the clothing chain, which is opening a store in Times Square and is offering anybody who buys anything from that store the chance to be on their massive billboard for 15 seconds. You don’t even have to buy something expensive. A shirt. Pants. Even a pair of socks will do. You fork over a few bucks, they take your photo, you run outside, and within 15 minutes, there you are, larger than life, for 15 seconds

— which, of course, is long enough to snap a gazillion photos, send them out all over the Internet and live in your moment of fame forever. On the one hand, it’s a brilliant marketing idea. Who wouldn’t buy a pair of socks for a chance at the Mt. Olympus of commercial exposure? This is the air space that once featured a giant winking penguin or a billboard of people’s butts adorned with smiley faces. “We’d love this to become the newest landmark in Times Square,” the marketing chief for American Eagle, Steve Kubinski, told USA Today this past week.

What a stupid concept On the other hand, if everyone is literally famous for 15 seconds — and for nothing more than buying a flannel shirt — how famous is famous? This is all part of the narcissism culture that moved from T-shirts with your kids’ faces to chest thumping to

celebratory rap lyrics through Me Cameras, reality TV, YouTube postings and now, the last pinnacle, a Times Square billboard. You used to have to do something to become famous. Now being famous is doing something. The most important currency in this country is not measured on green paper. It’s measured by how many people point at you and say, “Aren’t you...?” I have this vision one day of a world where it is so easy to be famous, that the only really celebrated person will be the one who escapes attention, like some fugitive, a dark knight, a Batman of anonymity. Of course, that will be hard to do when everyone gets his or her 15 seconds. Twenty-five stories high. It makes me wonder what my grandmother would have thought. Walking through Times Square, holding her grandson’s hand, seeing him look up, eyes wide, and ask her, “Who’s that?” And she’d say, “That’s Phil. And they were ugly socks.”

Other Views Hearings show need to hold candidates more accountable

Dems find hope in GOP chaos Democrats took it on the chin in this year’s off-off-year gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey. Since those are two states that President Obama won last year, vulnerable Democratic lawmakers in next year’s elections are feeling as nervous as Glenn Beck at an ACORN convention. But the Dems can find a silver lining in the high-profile Democratic victory in a traditionally Republican upstate New York district. The lesson in that contest: National Republican leaders are taking the title for infighting away from the traditionally fractious national Democrats. That’s one important lesson to be come out of this year’s contests. Here are two more: 1. The magical Obamamania that energized young voters, in particular, last year was historic but not easily loaned out to other Democrats. 2. Colorful extremists fire up a party’s base and raise a lot of money, but moderate swing voters tend to decide who wins. Obama’s coattails were too short to give New Jersey Gov. John Corzine anything to grab onto as he struggled in vain to keep his seat. Exit polls show voters were fed up with high taxes and corruption scandals. Repeated campaign visits by President Obama, Mr. Change himself, could not save a governor who had come to represent a despised status quo. Nevertheless, the even bigger loss suffered by Virginia’s Creigh Deeds showed that it is better for a Democrat to have Obama by your side than out of sight. After failing to get anywhere by distancing himself from Obama, Deeds was delighted to have Obama campaign with him. But Deeds learned too late what Al Gore learned by spurning the help of Bill Clinton in 2000: Don’t distance yourself from people whom your voting base still adores.

The possibility that the 2009 contests are a preview of bigger Democratic losses in next year’s midterm elections puts a chill up the spine of vulnerable Democrats at a bad time. Party leaders need all the spine they can muster to pass a strong health care overhaul bill this year. With Deeds’ demise in mind, Democrats would do well to remember what the late Clarence Texas-based columnist Page Molly Ivins Tribune Media used to say, Services “Dance with the one that brung you.” The Democratic base expects to see a meaningful health care overhaul and they’ll be even more turned off next year if they don’t get it. With that in mind, Democrats can find some hope in Republican disarray, as evidenced by Democrat Bill Owens victory in New York’s 23d district. Party leaders anointed State Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava to fill Rep. John McHugh’s seat after he was appointed secretary of the Army. But she wasn’t conservative enough for purists like Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Bill Kristol, Sean Hannity and the Club for Growth. They backed Doug Hoffman, a self-described fan of anti-tax tea party protests and Fox News’ excitable Beck. When Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, a 2012 GOP presidential hopeful, endorsed Hoffman, the race became a test of clout for the talk-show-driven, populist-conservative movement born out of this year’s anti-tax, anti-Obama “Tea Party” movement and town hall protests. Former Speaker Newt Gingrich warned against dividing the party and handing Speaker

Nancy Pelosi another Democratic vote in the House. He was jeered by the Palin populists for that, but Newt turned out to be right. I don’t know if Obama had such a fight in mind when he appointed McHugh, but if I were him I would claim I did. Thanks to the tea party populists, the move bore sweeter fruit than Democrats had any right to expect. Undaunted, Palin declared on her Facebook page, “The race for New York’s 23rd District is not over, just postponed until 2010.” Of course, in the meantime, a Democrat will be filling the seat and casting the votes. But the Palin populists seem to care less about winning campaigns at this point than winning arguments. A better model for Republican success is provided Virginia’s governor-elect Bob McDonnell. He beat Deeds by moving to the center, soft-pedaling his background as a Pat Robertsonaffiliated social conservative and addressing practical issues like taxes and transportation. McDonnell didn’t have to reassure his conservative base, since Deeds’ negative ads ironically did that job for him. As a result, attacks from his left freed McDonnell to run as an Obama-style centrist, not a Palin-style barnstormer. That’s a lesson for charisma-challenged Republican leaders as they try to get back into power in Washington. The GOP’s angry tea-party conservatives can raise money and whip up excitement in the discontented Republican base. But when big problems like jobs and the economy are at stake, voters care less about who’s right or who’s left than with what’s going to work.

Mike Easley painted himself as Mr. Clean, but there was dirt under his fingernails. The State Board of Elections slapped his campaign with a $100,000 fine recently for assorted violations and is asking for a criminal investigation. His Wilmington lawyer says he welcomes the investigation as a chance to clear the ex-governor’s name. Time will tell. A federal grand jury also is sniffing around. Whether charges are forthcoming or not, however, (the) hearing shone a harsh spotlight on Easley, and he didn’t come out looking good. His “friends” — most of them major campaign contributors — depicted him as an amiable freeloader, happily accepting gifts and favors without feeling the need to offer repayment. Easley, meanwhile, pleaded amnesia about those and other financial dealings … Associates … also characterized him as a bit of a tightwad, reluctant to authorize spending. Apparently he didn’t apply that Scrooge-like philosophy to other people’s wallets. From testimony at the hearings, it seemed that Easley felt entitled to free flights, free use of an SUV for his son and the under-the-table deal that landed his wife a swell job with N.C. State University. The fact that many of these “friends” also received plum appointments or were seeking favorable action from state government … adds a sleaze factor. … Throughout his own testimony, Easley displayed a casual attitude about his campaign finances. That may have prompted State Board Chairman Larry Leake’s observation that North Carolina law should hold candidates more accountable for the actions of their campaigns. … Candidates should take responsibility for the actions of their campaign staffs, and should be punished for any violations. These hearings also illustrated the difficulty of controlling how soft money — donations to political parties and special interest groups — is used. If (donors who testified) were assured that their soft money would go to a specific candidate, it stands to reason that other donors got the same information. Does all this mean Mike Easley, a former prosecutor, attorney general and governor, is a criminal? That is for the justice system to sort out. But ordinary taxpayers can’t help but notice the political stench that followed him out of the Governor’s Mansion. — Star-News of Wilmington

DEAR ABBY: I am slightly overweight and want to lose 5 to 10 pounds. I admittedly have little self-control and always eat whatever is put in front of me. My problem is my wife continues to stock cookies, ice cream and other goodies in the house. Even though I have asked her on many occasions to stop, she refuses to honor my requests. She says “the kids” shouldn’t have to suffer because of my lack of self-control. Abby, I’d like our kids to eat better, too. What should I do? I’d hate to split up over this issue because we have preteens and everything else is going well. — FRUSTRATED IN SAN DIEGO DEAR FRUSTRATED: The print and television media have, for some time, been filled with stories about the importance of children learning healthy eating habits and urging parents to not only stock the fridge and pantry with healthy snacks, but also to set a good example. Your wife may have missed all of this, or she may have some ulterior motive for making sure you don’t lose the weight. Should this end an otherwise good marriage? No, but please understand that if you do not draw the line, your children may also wind up paying the price.

fact they can’t keep their hands off each other. Because you can’t seem to get through to your wife, enlist the help of a licensed marriage counselor.

DEAR ABBY: My wife, “Paula,” and I have a friend I’ll call “Mark.” I recently learned that before our wedding, Mark made a pass at Paula. (He was separated from his wife at the time.) Paula told him she wasn’t interested. I also found out that Paula kissed Mark while we were having some difficulties during the past couple of years. But when Mark and his wife Dear worked Abby things U niversal Press out, he Syndicate told Paula the behavior had to end. When I ask my wife about these things, she’s honest and tells me what happened. I try to keep an open mind and get past it, but haven’t been able to. It doesn’t help that Mark visits Paula at her job several times a week, and she stays there socializing with him after she’s done working. I’d estimate they spend at least 10 hours a week together. I don’t like to be around them anymore because they’re always touching and poking each other. I actually counted 22 “touches” once when I was with them for a couple of hours. I have told my wife I’m uncomfortable with their relationship, especially because of the past kissing business. She says I should stop being insecure and that they’re just friends. I feel she is choosing their friendship over our marriage. Please help me figure out what to do. — LEFT OUT IN MAINE DEAR LEFT OUT: Mark isn’t your friend.

Thousands cheer 20 years since fall of Berlin Wall By MELISSA EDDY KIRSTEN GRIESHABER Associated Press Writers

and

BERLIN — Ulrich Sauff and his wife stared at the mammoth domino pieces marking the path where the Berlin Wall once stood and reminisced about life in the barrier’s shadow. “It was like a prison,” said Sauff, 73, who lived on the Western side of the wall. “For us ’Wessis,’ the few kilometers from our old home to our new home (in the East) was unthinkable.” The Sauffs were among those who gathered Monday to celebrate 20 years of unity, marking the day the wall came down. Thousands cheered as 1,000 colorfully decorated dominoes along a milelong route were toppled to symbolize both the moment the wall came crashing down and the resulting fall of communist governments in Eastern Europe. It was the finale to a day of memorial services, speeches and events that attracted leaders from around the world, including former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. Chancellor Angela Merkel and 78-year-old Gorbachev stood shoulder to shoulder as they crossed a former fortified border crossing point between East and West Berlin to cheers of “Gorby! Gorby!” “Looking back, we can see many causes that led to the peaceful revolution, but it still remains a miracle,” German President Horst Koehler told the leaders of all 27 European Union countries, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Merkel — Germany’s first chancellor to be raised in the former communist East — called the events of Nov. 9, 1989 an “epic” mo-

ment in history. “For me, it was one of the happiest moments of my life,” Merkel told a crowd of tens of thousands packed around the Brandenburg Gate. In a video message screened at the main event, President Barack Obama paid tribute to the dissidents and demonstrators who ushered in the fall of the wall 20 years ago. “Let us never forget Nov. 9, 1989, nor the sacrifices that made it possible,” Obama said to applause and cheers. Clinton paid tribute to Germany and other countries who shook loose communist bonds. “We remember the people of the Baltics who joined hands across their land ... we remember the students of Prague who propelled a dissident playwright from a jail cell to the presidency,”

she said. “And tonight we remember the Germans, and especially the Germans in the East who stood up to say ’No more.”’ Merkel also recalled the tragic side of Nov. 9 for Germans — the Nazis’ Kristallnacht, or Night of Broken Glass — an anti-Semitic pogrom 71 years ago. At least 91 German Jews were killed, hundreds of synagogues destroyed and thousands of Jewish businesses vandalized and looted in the state-sanctioned riots that night. “Both show that freedom is not self evident,” Merkel said. “Freedom must be fought for. Freedom must be defended time and again.” Uwe Kross, a 65-year-old retiree, fought back tears as he recalled watching the drama unfold two decades ago, hours after a confused announcement that East

NOTICE OF A CITIZENS INFORMATIONAL WORKSHOP FOR A TRAFFIC SEPARATION STUDY/RAILROAD CROSSING ANALYSIS IN THE CITY OF HENDERSON Tip Project No. P-4404

Vance

The North Carolina department of Transportation (NCDOT) will hold the above Citizens Informational Workshop on Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2009, beginning at 5p.m. and ending at h7p.m., in the Henderson City council Chambers, located in the Municipal Building at 1134 Rose Ave. NCDOT representatives will be available in an informal setting to answer questions and receive comments about the results of a traffic separation study that was performed in Henderson. The opportunity to submit written comments or questions will be provided and is encouraged, Interested citizens may attend at any time during the above mentioned hours. There will be no formal presentation. The NCDOT rail Division performed a traffic separation study that included a railroad crossing analysis in Henderson. The proposed project includes the closure of existing railroad crossings at St. Matthews Street, Spring Street, Orange Street, Winder street, Rock Springs Street, Carolyn Court. Harris Street band Railroad Street. The traffic separation study also includes the upgrade of safety equipment as well as other railroad crossing improvements. The proposed closure of these railroad crossings is part of an effort to reduce the number of redundant and/or unsafe rail highway at-grade crossings statewide.

Dominoes symbolizing the Berlin Wall sit on the ground after falling in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, Germany, on Monday during the commemorations of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Germany was lifting travel restrictions. “That night, you couldn’t stop people,” Kross said. “They lifted the barrier and everyone poured through. We saw it first on TV, normally it was very quiet up here, but that night we could hear the footsteps of those crossing, tap, tap, tap.” Merkel, who was one of thousands to cross that night, recalled that “before the joy of freedom came, many people suffered.” She lauded Gorbachev, with whom she shared an umbrella amid a crush of hundreds, eager for a glimpse of the man many still consider a hero for his role in pushing reform in the Soviet Union. “You made this pos-

sible — you courageously let things happen, and that was much more than we could expect,” she said. Later, Merkel also thanked Germany’s neighbors to the east. She welcomed several leaders who dared to stand up for democracy, including Poland’s 1980s pro-democracy leader, Lech Walesa, and Miklos Nemeth, Hungary’s last prime minister before communism collapsed. The two men were tapped to push the first domino. Music from Bon Jovi and Beethoven recalled the joy of the border’s opening, which led to German reunification less than a year later and the swift demolition of most of the wall — which snaked for 96 miles around West Berlin, a capitalist enclave deep inside East Germany. In the decades it stood, 136 people were killed trying to make their way across the border and the wall came to represent the split in ideologies between the communist East and the democratic West. “This wall divided not only a single country but, as we realize today, all of Europe,” Medvedev said, taking his turn in a series of speeches by leaders gathered at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate for the ceremonies.

He said the wall was “destined to fall” amid reforms that were gaining momentum in the Communist Soviet Union and other countries in Eastern Europe, which was dominated by Moscow. “The role of the Soviet Union in that period was truly decisive.” By the Brandenburg Gate, which stood in a no man’s land behind the wall for nearly three decades, Dieter Mohnka, 74, and his wife Helga, 71, shared a bowl of French fries on Monday afternoon and recalled the night the wall was opened. “We were shocked when we heard that announced, simply astounded,” Helga Mohnka said. “The next morning we went straight to visit my aunt in the West.” Dieter Mohnka, a high school teacher at the time, said he had long been fascinated with West Germany. “I was born in East Germany, I went to school in East Germany. I was supposed to teach the kids about the wonderfulness of the East, when I was secretly watching TV from the West,” he said. Associated Press writers Geir Moulson, Mary MacPherson Lane and Laura Stevens contributed to this report.

No. 800 Boeheim gets historic victory as Syracuse rolls in opener

Panther linebacker Davis out for season with torn ACL By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTE— The Carolina Panthers lost perhaps their most productive defensive player Monday when tests showed weakside linebacker Thomas Davis has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Heels’ D was the difference vs. Duke There’s a reason why the North Carolina-Duke “rivalry” game is no longer honored as the last game of the regular football schedule. The games are usually close – anybody’s game in the fourth quarter in seven of the last eight games – but North Carolina always wins. Saturday’s contest was no different, as Carolina out-played, out-bodied, and – yes – out-coached Duke 19-6 in Chapel Hill for the Heels’ 19th win in the Mike last 20. Sosna “I Dispatch thought our ACC Columnist defensive staff put together an outstanding game plan,” UNC head coach Butch Davis said, “and our players really executed it.” The Devils’ Thad Lewis came into the contest as the conference’s leading passer, averaging 383 yards in conference games, but Carolina shut down Duke’s passing attack. “The real story tonight is probably the defense,” Davis said. “Just relentless pressure on the quarterback, not giving him time to throw. I thought our secondary was as aggressive as they have been the entire season, trying to get up and challenge receivers and disrupt the timing.” Lewis, a 67 percent passer in conference games, was 16-for-33 for only 113 passing yards. More than recent Duke opponents, the Tar Heels took advantage of the Blue Devils’ impotent running game, with three running backs able to net only 5 yards rushing. “When you're unable to run the ball, like we've been,” Duke head coach David Cutcliffe said, “somebody as good as they are exposed us.” Curiously, despite their obvious inability to run the ball against Carolina – not an unsurprising result for the conference’s worst rushing offense against the league’s best rushing defense – Duke kept trying. The predictability of the Devils gameplan didn’t make its ground game any better – running on the first play in eight of its 11 possessions. Based on results at that time, two weeks ago I picked Cutcliffe as doing the best job among triangle ACC coaches. I rather doubt the Henderson Dispatch became bulletin board material for Butch Davis, but the Carolina coaching staff out-coached their opposite number Saturday. UNC was prepared for all of Duke’s favorite plays, Please see RIVALRY, page 3B

Davis’ season-ending injury came without getting hit in Sunday’s loss to New Orleans. He was backpedaling when stopped to plant and his knee buckled. He crumpled to the turf as Drew Brees threw a 17-yard pass to Pierre Thomas in the fourth quarter. A serious injury was imme-

diately feared, and it derails the speedy Davis’ most successful season in another blow for injury-plagued Carolina (3-5). “He’s played very well. I feel bad for the young man because he’s put a lot into it,” coach John Fox said before the team revealed the extent of the injury. “He was playing at a high level.

It’s unfortunate, and I feel bad for him and his family.” Davis, a 2005 first-round pick from Georgia in his fourth season with the Panthers, ranks second on the team behind fellow linebacker Jon Beason with 69 tackles. He also had two sacks and an interception and his teammates had begun

talking about him as a Pro Bowl selection. “This defense is pretty much made for the Will linebacker to be a playmaker,” safety Chris Harris said. “Thomas, with his physical skill and ability was making plays left and right. He Please see DAVIS, page 3B

Kurt Busch, Tryson continue to race hard By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

CHARLOTTE — Kurt Busch and Pat Tryson had every reason to coast through the season’s final 10 races in a long farewell before the crew chief bolts to a new team next year. Only they promised not to go through the motions, and Busch’s win at Texas Motor Speedway showed they kept their word. The victory Sunday moved Busch to fourth in the standings and gave him a solid shot at celebrating a top-five finish when NASCAR’s season-ending awards ceremony makes its debut in Busch’s hometown of Las Vegas. Not too shabby considering Tryson is only allowed inside Penske Racing once a week, for the Tuesday team meeting. He’s been banned from the shop the rest of the time as Penske officials prepare for 2010 without him.

Tryson decided in late August to move to Michael Waltrip Racing next season to crew chief Martin Truex Jr., news that broke just a week before the start of the championship race.

Heels tip off hoops season Thompson, Heels spoil Thomas’ FIU coaching debut By AARON BEARD AP College Basketball Writer

CHAPEL HILL — Isiah Thomas stood on the sideline and ordered his undersized Florida International team to spread the court against the defending national champions. That’s when North Carolina’s Deon Thompson walked over and teasingly asked why Thomas had to make the bigger Tar Heels defend so much on the perimeter. “He just started laughing and said, ’Man, that’s the only thing I can do,”’ Thompson said. Yes, the Tar Heels were too talented and just too big in their 88-72 victory over the Golden Panthers in the 2K Sports Classic on Monday night. And it was a reminder that Thomas could be in for a frustrating debut season with the long-struggling FIU program. But for Thomas, it was a start. “The thing I liked about our team was we fought,” Thomas said. “The first thing you’ve got to do in order to win is you’ve got to learn how to fight.” Thompson scored 20 points to lead the sixth-ranked Tar Heels (1-0), who shot 56 percent and led by double digits much of the way to kick off their centennial season against Thomas — the Hall of Fame player and former NBA coach who inherits a program with nine straight losing seasons. His debut came on the same day his 86-year-old mother, Mary, had open-

He spent Sunday with her, then arrived in Chapel Hill early Monday for the Golden Panthers’ shootaround at the Smith Center and planned to return to Chicago on Tuesday. “My mom raised me basically to fight, just as I’m trying to put it in our team,” Thomas said. “Last night, when I was speaking to her, she just said she doesn’t want to die. And she’s going to fight to live. With that, she told me to go to work and fight for our team.” Marvin Roberts had 18 points for the Golden Panthers (0-1), who shot 37 Please see HEELS, page 2B

DENVER — Rarely has playing it safe paid off so well for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Tyrone Carter started in place of safety Ryan Clark as a precaution Monday night and made the big play that sparked the Steelers to their fifth straight win, taking the first of his two interceptions 48 yards for a touchdown in Pittsburgh’s 2810 win over the Denver Broncos. Clark nearly died following a game in Denver two years ago because of a rare blood disorder that is aggravated by playing in high altitude, so Steelers coach Mike Tomlin decided to hold him out of the game. He said he didn’t want to risk Clark’s health or burden his teammates and family members with

worry. Carter capped his night with his second interception with 15 seconds left, and Clark, dressed in charcoal sweats and a smile on the sideline, jumped up and down in celebration. Hines Ward caught two short touchdown passes from Ben Roethlisberger, including one in which he hauled in a pass in the flat and hurdled cornerback Champ Bailey on his way into the end zone, a final indignity for Denver that capped the scoring with 1:22 remaining and emptied the stadium. Rashard Mendenhall rumbled over the Broncos for 155 yards on 22 carries as the Steelers (6-2) handed Denver its second straight loss after the Broncos opened the season 6-0 under rookie coach Josh McDaniels.

NHL Hurricanes sign veteran Manny Legace RALEIGH (AP) — The Carolina Hurricanes are turning to veteran goalie Manny Legace to help replace the injured Cam Ward. The Hurricanes on Monday signed Legace to a one-year contract that will pay him $500,000 at the NHL level or $105,000 if he is sent to the minors. The 36-year-old has a career NHL record of 17792-36 and was 2-2 with a 3.21 goals-against average this season with the AHL’s Chicago Wolves Carolina was searching for help in net because Ward will be out for up to four weeks. The 2006 Conn Smythe Trophy winner’s leg was cut by a skate Saturday night in Columbus during the Hurricanes’ club-record 12th straight loss.

College Football Pac-10 reinstates Oregon’s Blount Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount, who was suspended for the season after punching a Boise State player in the wake of the season opener, has been allowed to rejoin the Ducks. The university requested Blount’s reinstatement, which was approved by Pacific-10 Conference Commissioner Larry Scott on Monday. Blount will be able to play for the No. 14 Ducks on Saturday night when they host Arizona State. He missed eight games. Blount issued a statement saying he was grateful to Oregon coach Chip Kelly for giving him a second chance. “Now it is up to me to prove to people that their lasting impressions of me are not what they saw in Boise,” he said. Blount punched Byron Hout following the nationally televised opener, bringing the Broncos’ defensive end to his knees. The next day he was suspended for the season by Kelly, but he was allowed to keep his scholarship and practice with the team. “We have tremendous respect for Oregon. Those coaches, we know most of those guys very well. And so, whatever they decide we’re 100 percent behind. I think that’s good for all involved if that’s what they chose to do,” Boise State coach Chris Petersen said.

MLB Boston exercises Martinez option, declines Varitek BOSTON (AP) — The Red Sox exercised their $7.7 million option on Victor Martinez and declined options on Jason Varitek and Alex Gonzalez on Monday. Boston also agreed to a $5 million, two-year contract with 43-year-old knuckleballer Tim Wakefield, replacing a perpetual $4 million annual club option. The moves on the options were expected after Boston obtained Martinez from the Cleveland Indians on July 31 and he replaced Varitek as the starting catcher. The club option for Varitek was worth $5 million, but he can stay with the team if he exercises his $3 million player option. The Red Sox also could try to keep Gonzalez at shortstop for less than the $6 million option. He receives a $500,000 buyout. Martinez and Gonzalez played well for the Red Sox while Varitek struggled offensively for the second straight season. Wakefield was sidelined most of the second half with a back injury after making the AllStar team for the first time.

Syracuse 75, Albany 43 SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Jim Boeheim became the eighth Division I coach to reach 800 wins with milestone coming over Albany, 75-43 on Monday night in the 2K Sports Classic. The 65-year-old Boeheim got his first victory, 75-48 over Harvard on Nov. 26, 1976. Bob Knight leads the career list with 902 victories. Only Mike Krzyzewski (833), Jim Calhoun (804)

and Boeheim are active among the eight who have reached 800. Arinze Onuaku scored 14 points, Scoop Jardine and Wes Johnson each had 12 for Syracuse (1-0) in the tournament that benefits Coaches vs. Cancer. After the final buzzer, Boeheim received a framed uniform with No. 800 stitched on it. Boeheim established an NCAA Division I record in 2008-09 with his 31st season with at least 20

wins. He has 800 in 1,088 games, including a record 356 wins in the Big East. Will Harris led Albany (0-1) with 14 points.

No. 16 Ohio St. 100, Alcorn St. 60 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Evan Turner recorded the second triple-double ever for Ohio State with 14 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists in the victory in the 2K Sports Classic. Turner needed one assist for 10 but his

teammates missed three straight shots. A bounce pass to Jon Diebler, who had 22 points, led to a 3-pointer with just over 7 minutes left for the tripledouble. William Buford added 19 points, Jeremie Simmons 12 and Walter Offutt 11 for the Buckeyes (1-0). Jonathan Boyd scored 20 points for the Braves (0-1), who are coached by former NBA star Larry Smith and are coming off a 6-25 season.

Holtz: Two injured Pirates lost for season GREENVILLE (AP) — East Carolina will be shorthanded as the Pirates continue defense of their Conference USA championship. Safety Dekota Marshall and tight end Rob Kass suffered season-ending injuries in last week’s loss to Virginia Tech, coach Skip Holtz said Monday. “The game came with a price,” Holtz said. Marshall broke two bones in his lower left leg midway through the first quarter of the 16-3 loss to the 20th-ranked Hokies when he took a hard hit while on punt coverage. Holtz says Marshall had surgery over the weekend.

Kass injured his right knee in the second quarter when he fumbled after a catch and had several players fall on him. Holtz also says defensive lineman Josh Smith Holtz is questionable with a shoulder injury and missed most of last week’s practices. The injury announcements weren’t unexpected, but they do cast a pall over the end of the season for the Pirates (5-4, 4-1 C-USA). After going 0-for-3

against the three powerconference teams on the schedule, they’ll have to be content to chase their second straight league title. East Carolina enters the final three games of the season alone in first place in the East Division, one game ahead of the four-way logjam in second place. “In spite of the injuries, I think this football team is very focused and hungry,” Holtz said. “This team has its eyes on the prize.” The Pirates are preparing for yet another nonSaturday game. They visit Tulsa on Sunday night in a rematch of last year’s C-

USA championship game. The Golden Hurricane (4-5, 2-3) are coming off a loss to No. 13 Houston, which trailed by eight in the final minute but kicked a winning 51-yard field goal on the final play to win 46-45. “There is more pressure playing in the conference games,” Holtz said. “There is carryover between each game that you play. Each game weighs more and more and the pressure starts to mount. I think the team did a nice job handling the pressure a year ago and I think that will go a long way to helping us handle things this year.”

Grizzlies owner: Not sure of Iverson’s plans

Iverson, who signed a one-year, incentive-laden deal in September, missed the preseason with a partially-torn left hamstring. He made his Grizzlies’ debut on the road a week ago in California, playing in three games at Sacramento, Golden State and

in Los Angeles with the Lakers. Iverson averaged 22.3 minutes coming off the bench, and he hit 57.3 percent of his shots. He averaged 12.3 points per game for the Grizzlies (1-6). Heisley said he spent two days in California talking with Iverson and hopes his biggest star can get his personal life in order. He would love to see Iverson playing for the first time in Memphis on Tuesday night when the Grizzlies host Portland, but Heisley said he did not put any timetable on his return. If Iverson returns, Heisley said the challenge for the Grizzlies and the guard is figuring out how to use him to meet the team’s needs and those of the veteran. The Grizzlies are young with a roster filled with players like Rudy Gay, O.J. Mayo and Michael Conley who need to start and play to keep growing.

NBA’s New York Knicks. The game also had its own mild dose of offseason controversy when FIU initially balked at playing North Carolina in the 2K Sports Classic, saying it had expected Thomas’ opener would come at Ohio State instead. Thomas got a late start onto the court, barely walking out of the visiting tunnel before the national anthem had started. He walked across the court to the bench and was greeted with a handshake and a hug by Williams, who was on the bench as Dean Smith’s assistant when Thomas led Indiana past North Carolina for the 1981 NCAA championship in his final game as a col-

lege player. “It’s been a big whirlwind,” FIU junior Phil Gary said. “He’s a Hall of Fame player and is trying to become a Hall of Fame coach. It’s been a big transition from just a regular coach to Isiah Thomas, but we’ve adjusted quick.” North Carolina offered up its own reminder of the past. The Tar Heels wore throwback uniforms to honor the 1957 national championship team as part of is yearlong celebration of its 100th season, complete with the unusual sight of some red on the waistband of the shorts and the neckline of the jersey.

Memphis owner Michael Heisley says he is not sure of what Allen Iverson’s future plans are, though he hopes Iverson returns to the Grizzlies soon. Heisley granted the 10time all-star permission Saturday for an indefinite leave to deal with a personal matter. The Commercial Appeal newspaper reported Monday that Iverson is contemplating retirement. “I’m not in Allen’s head. I don’t know what he’s thinking,” Heisley told The Associated Press on Monday. “I know he went back to take care of a personal problem. Whether he does something else, I don’t know. I’m hoping he comes back. I think he could still play for us, somebody else, what have you. In my opinion, there’s two, three years of outstanding play that could come out of Allen

HEELS, from page 1B percent. North Carolina led 46-30 at halftime, then pushed the margin to 25 points in the first 5 minutes of the second half to eliminate any chance of a Hollywood-esque story line for Thomas. Instead, the game offered a glimpse of what remains from the squad that rolled Michigan State in last season’s NCAA title game. While four starters are gone — including four-year star Tyler Hansbrough and fellow firstround NBA draft picks Ty Lawson and Wayne Ellington — there’s still plenty of talent and, most notably, size on a squad that showed plenty of balance against the Golden Panthers. There just isn’t all that much experience outside of Thompson and fifth-year senior Marcus Ginyard, who missed much of last season with a foot injury. “Last year’s guys, I’ve been with them ever since I’ve been here,” Thompson said. “We all knew each other and knew each other’s tendencies: where guys are going to go, how guys like to get shots and things like that. Now you just have no clue where

that person is going to go, what he’s thinking in his mind or if he even knows the play. It’s definitely a big difference, but it’s also fun and exciting to experience something new.” Thompson, the top returning scorer from last season, was 7 of 11 from the field and had 10 rebounds, while frontcourtmate Ed Davis added 13 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots. Ginyard chipped in 12 points, while Larry Drew II — the sophomore following Lawson at point guard — finished with seven points, six assists and two turnovers in 21 minutes. Still, North Carolina looked ragged at times when the game was in hand, committing 26 turnovers to continue what coach Roy Williams said was a consistent theme through the preseason. “For the most part, I thought we were active. We were trying hard,” Williams said. “We just weren’t very sharp. But it’s what you should expect this time of year.” FIU made headlines when it hired Thomas, who was coming off a tumultuous stint with the

Kansas City releases Larry Johnson

Johnson has been high-maintenance since the Chiefs drafted him in the first round out of Penn State in 2003. Unhappy because he thought he was going to be taken by the Pittsburgh Steelers, Johnson brooded while playing behind Pro Bowler Priest Holmes. He even prompted then-coach Dick Vermeil to say it was time for him “to take the diapers off.” His last brush with controversy came two weeks ago when he posted on his Twitter account a gay slur, insulted followers and questioned the competence of head coach Todd Haley. He was suspended for two weeks, but Haley said the final decision to cast

him aside was not made until early Monday. “We decided it was in the best interests of the Kansas City Chiefs organization to move forward at this time,” he said. Behind a poor offensive line this year, Johnson has gained 2.7 yards per carry for the Chiefs (1-7) and appeared not to have the quickness and punishing power that enabled him to rush for more than 1,700 yards in Pro Bowl seasons in 2005 and ’06. Can he still be effective? “I don’t think I’ll answer that because he’s no longer on this team,” Haley said. Since rushing for a teamrecord 1,789 yards on an NFL-record 416 carries in 2006, Johnson has never been quite the same. In 2008, then-coach Herm Edwards benched him for three straight games for violating team rules and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspended him a fourth game for violating the league’s player-conduct policy. Johnson was later sentenced to two years’ probation after pleading guilty to two counts of disturbing the peace. One woman accused him of throwing a drink on her and another said he had pushed her head at a Kansas City night spot.

official as Orton was releasing the short pass over the middle, and Carter raced into the end zone untouched for a 7-3 lead. The Broncos’ defense retaliated on the opening drive of the second half when Kenny Peterson swooped in and punctuated his first sack of the season by punching the ball out of Roethlisberger’s hands. Rookie linebacker Robert Ayers scooped it up and rumbled 54 yards for a touchdown that gave Denver a 10-7 lead. It didn’t last long. Roethlisberger, who was 21 for 29 for 233 yards, drove the Steelers 80 yards in four plays, hitting Ward with a 3-yard strike over the outstretched right arm of linebacker D.J. Williams to put Pittsburgh ahead for good, 14-10. Roethlisberger drove the Steelers to the Denver

15 on the Steelers’ next possession, but he threw behind Ward in the end zone and cornerback Andre’ Goodman picked it off — Big Ben’s first red-zone interception since 2007. The Steelers dominated the second half by going no-huddle with three-wide receiver sets, which kept Elvis Dumervil, who has 10 1/2 sacks, on the sideline much of the time. Clark was one of three Steelers defensive starters sitting out, joining defensive end Travis Kirschke (calf) and linebacker Lawrence Timmons (ankle). It hardly mattered as Denver managed just 59 yards on six second-half drives. By the closing minutes, Invesco Field was a sea of yellow Terrible Towels and thousands of empty blue seats, orange giveaway pom-pons littering the aisles.

Landon Johnson, who led Cincinnati in tackles three times over four seasons but has been much less productive in two seasons with Carolina, will likely move into the starting lineup. Johnson had 10 tackles filling in for Davis against the Bills. “If I end up going in to replace TD it’s obviously big shoes to fill,” Johnson said. “I just got to go out there and practice as hard

as I can.” The Panthers did not immediately place Davis on injured reserve, which would open a roster spot for another linebacker. Reserve James Anderson can also play that position, but linebacker Na’il Diggs said it’s impossible to replace Davis. “I haven’t seen another one like him on any team I’ve played on,” Diggs said. “Just flat out crazy talent, crazy athleticism.”

going wrong and all of a sudden he put the fire out.” On Duke’s next possession, Cutcliffe gambled on four and 4 from Carolina’s 35-yard line, but Lewis’ pass was batted away. “If Bruce (Carter) doesn’t get his hand on the ball, it’s a completion,” said Lewis. “The game of football is something like chess, you gotta gamble sometimes.” The Tar Heel’s physical domination – and its almost two-to-one advantage in time of possession – took its toll after that, as Ryan Houston, who battered Duke all day, carried the ball on 10 of 11 plays, to set up the touchdown that put the game out of reach. “In the fourth quarter I really felt like they were

getting fatigued because I was getting a lot of arm tackles,” Houston said. The good news for Carolina is that, since the Florida State game, it rediscovered the play that had led to its preseason hype, with still time to make the season a successful one. “The ability to handle the type of things that this team has gone through over the last three weeks kind of speaks volumes,” Davis said about the turnaround. The best news Duke can take is that the loss is part of the process. “Losing to your big rival in a game where so much was on the line will be a great test,” Cutcliffe said, “one that we should welcome because it’s part of the growth of a program.”

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Given good blocking and a fresh start, Larry Johnson might still be the powerrunning Pro Bowler who had back-to-back 1,700yard seasons for Kansas City. Are you listening, Seattle? What do you think, Indianapolis? Chicago? Houston? Or he might be a declining malcontent who’ll only cost money and cause trouble. To that, every coach and general manager in the NFL is listening. The Chiefs released Johnson on Monday, the day he was due back from his second suspension in the past 12 months. Any team with a faltering running game is bound to be tempted by Johnson, despite his baggage and his age (he turns 30 on Nov. 19). “Any player that’s available, we look at,” said Bears coach Lovie Smith. “That’s been our standard policy throughout. That’ll be the case with Larry.” Houston coach Gary Kubiak agreed. “When a name like that comes on the free agent market like today, we’ll

The Kansas City Chiefs have released troubled running back Larry Johnson. obviously go back and take a look at him just like any other player,” Kubiak said. “Obviously, he’s been a good player in this league and I’m sure he’ll get a lot of interest from a lot of people.” The Seahawks have the league’s 30th-ranked rushing offense. Starter Julius Jones has sputtered. And last week, Seattle released ineffective backup Edgerrin James, the NFL’s active rushing leader. Yet coach Jim Mora doesn’t sound interested in Johnson. When asked if he was interested in adding a veteran running back, Mora said “No. ... Right now, we’ll just stick with what we’ve got.”

STEELERS, from page 1B Carter’s first interception return gave Pittsburgh a 7-3 halftime lead even though the Steelers had generated just three first downs and were outgained 183-54 in the first half. An ecstatic Clark was among the first players to swarm Carter, the first defender to pick off a Kyle Orton pass all season. His only interception before throwing three Monday night was a Hail Mary that Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss pulled down in a game last month. As he left the field, Clark clicked his heels and jokingly hollered, “I’m going home, and I’m not playing the rest of the year.” With the Steelers clinging to a 14-10 lead in the fourth quarter, safety Troy Polamalu snared another Orton pass, this one at

the Broncos 25-yard line, leading to Roethlisberger’s 25-yard TD toss to rookie Mike Wallace. Denver scored on its opening drive for the first time this season. But the Broncos had to settle for Matt Prater’s 40-yard field goal after cornerback William Gay broke up a pass at the 10 to Eddie Royal, who had three receptions for 47 yards on the 56-yard drive. The Broncos stopped themselves over and over again on offense, with Orton making poor passes and bad decisions and his receivers making uncharacteristic mistakes. Carter, who was Polamalu’s fill-in for a month when Polamalu had an injured knee earlier this season, had an easy pickoff when rookie running back Knowshon Moreno, Orton’s target, ran into an

DAVIS, from page 1B was having an excellent year, possibly a Pro Bowltype year.” Davis is the second defensive starter to be lost for the season, joining Maake Kemoeatu (torn Achilles’ tendon), who went down on the first day of training camp. Davis missed much of training camp with a sprained medial collateral ligament in the same knee, then sat out the Buffalo game last month

with a strained hamstring. The latest injury comes at an inopportune time for Davis, who will be a restricted free agent after the season. “I feel like that if the Panthers want to bring him back they’re not going to hold that against him,” defensive tackle Damione Lewis said. “He’s really done a great job this year. This has been his best season since he’s been in the league.”

RIVALRY, from page 1B stopping the quick passes to the flat for little gain and taking away the slant routes across the middle with tight man-to-man coverage. “I said during the week that I didn’t see a matchup in our favor,” Cutcliffe said, “and I was prophetic.” Yet, despite North Carolina clearly winning on the field, the score remaining tied 6-6 at the half, as Duke’s defense played well enough to keep the Devils in the game. Previously, Cutcliffe and his staff have shown the ability to give their team the edge with halftime adjustments. But this time, Davis and his staff countered every move. In the second half, Lewis was only 5-of-15 passing for a paltry 27 yards and

the Devils had only 43 yards of total offense, never getting deeper than Carolina’s 32-yard line. “We were fortunate to have a chance there in the fourth quarter to win the game because the bottom line is we got whipped,” said Cutcliffe. Then came the two decisive plays of the game. The first was Charlie Brown’s interception and 54-yard runback to Duke’s 20, just moments after the Blue Devils seemed to grab momentum when Leon Wright picked off a TJ Yates’ throw. That set up a Casey Barth’s 41yard field goal and a 9-6 UNC lead. “Charlie Brown’s interception was a huge emotional, psychological swing,” Davis said. “It looked like something was

Heels moving forward with Houston, no Draughn By AARON BEARD AP Sports Writer

CHAPEL HILL — Ryan Houston kept bulling his way through running lanes and using his 245-pound frame to drag tacklers an extra yard or two on every carry. It used to be the way North Carolina liked to attack short-yardage or goal-line running situations. Now, it’s the way the Tar Heels will have to run the football for the rest of the season if they want to get back to a bowl. Houston ran for careerhighs of 37 carries and 164 yards in the 19-6 win against rival Duke, a performance that came after starter Shaun Draughn was lost for the season with a shoulder injury suffered on the first offensive play. Now Houston is preparing for another big workload as the lead back heading into this weekend’s game against No. 12 Miami and his team one victory away from bowl eligibility. “I’ve been knowing (the plays) for going on three years, so I know the playbook,” Houston said Monday. “I’m not hesitating in there because I know everything that’s going on.” Before the Duke game, Houston had never had more than 18 carries or 74 yards rushing for the Tar Heels (6-3, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). But he

had 10 alone in the fourth quarter on the clockdraining drive that ended with Jheranie Boyd’s clinching touchdown on an end-around with about 7 minutes left. With Draughn out, the Tar Heels gave two carries to Anthony Elzy, who moved from fullback back to his original position of tailback about two weeks ago. Coach Butch Davis said Elzy will have to take more carries to help Houston, though he couldn’t help but chuckle when told that Houston was disappointed not to reach 40 carries against the Blue Devils. “He may have to get 40,” Davis said, “you never know.” At the least, Houston’s power running game might be better suited for the Tar Heels considering their offensive line has battled injuries and illness for much of the season. While Draughn was a home-run threat with more speed, Houston has always run through contact and kept the pile moving forward. That should help quarterback T.J. Yates, who has struggled with his consistency for much of the year. “It’s awesome handing the ball off to a guy and then watching him kind of punch people,” Yates said. “I’m looking forward to seeing how well he runs helps on our play-action pass.”

NASCAR, from page 1B cost Busch any shot at the title. Instead, they raced hard and overcame any limitations placed on Tryson’s preparation and planning. They also proved everyone wrong who predicted that Tryson’s lame duck status would keep Busch out of Victory Lane. “Pat, great job for you,” team owner Roger Penske told Tryson after Sunday’s race. “Appreciate the commitment you made in these last races. I want to say that publicly. I know you’re a first-class guy. What a great win for you and for the team.” Tryson simply thanked Penske for the kind words and the subject was dropped. It’s the same way Tryson has deflected talk about his departure since it became public knowledge. He’s chosen not to harp on it and instead make sure Busch had the very best race car possible each week of the Chase. That was evident early when Busch opened the Chase with consecutive top-10 finishes. There was an 11th at Kansas that hurt him in the standings, but he came back for another pair of top-10s. His only real off day was at Martinsville, where he’s struggled the last three years, and finished 17th. His Chase has been good enough to make Busch look back at Talladega two weeks ago with immense regret: He had a top-10 finish locked up on the final lap, only to be wrecked by new team-

mate Brad Keselowski and finish 30th. If Busch had brought his car home where he’d been running, he’d be a whole lot closer than 171 points behind leader Jimmie Johnson. “I’m kicking myself for what happened,” he said. “We find ourselves too far behind, but we’re still within a reasonable distance.” But Busch and Tryson have plenty to be proud of, most notably the professionalism they’ve shown during their farewell run together. Neither talks much publicly about why Tryson is leaving, but the crew chief has been absolutely adamant that it has nothing at all to do with Busch or his reputation as an emotional driver who is very hard on team personnel. It leaves Busch in a bind of having to replace a team leader who guided him to five wins and two Chase berths while probably resisting the urge to strangle him during one of his mid-race meltdowns. No matter how hard Busch might be on his team, though, the 2004 Chase winner is still the best option out there for a crew chief looking for a winner. And that’s why Victory Lane was a bit emotional Sunday night. “Right now, with the way that we’re situated, it’s bittersweet because, hey, Pat is leaving,” Busch said. “We wish that we could stick together. We want to get the best we can out of these last few races.”

Yet again, we have two winners this week. Cindy Abate and William Felts will take the prize for picking 10 games correctly and winning with the tiebreaker. We had some movement in the standings this week. It was a good week to be a Harris. Clayton Harris had a 9-3 week, which leaves him in sole possession of first place for the time being. Just three weeks ago, Dwight Harris was in 37th place. A 10-win week vaults him up into a three-way tie for 11th. Also, William Felts’ 10-2 week improves his standing from 32nd to 14th. Lots of good games are scheduled this week. North Carolina has had Miami’s number recently, but this is a much-improved Hurricane squad that seems to be on the upswing. The Canes come to Chapel Hill this weekend. Notre Dame will try to rebound from yet another loss to the Naval Academy when they travel to face a tough Pittsburgh team. Texas Tech will go to Stillwater to face Oklahoma State, where points will be scored.

The Bengals (6-2) can take control of the division by winning next Sunday at Pittsburgh; the Steelers (5-2) play Denver on Monday night. Cincinnati has won all four games in the division, including a sweep of the Ravens (44), who started fast but have self-destructed into mediocrity. They’ve been at their worst against the Bengals, who took advantage of three Ravens penalties to pull off a winning drive in Baltimore on Oct. 11 for a 17-14 win. Benson was coming off the best game of his career: 189 yards against his former Bears team, a dominating performance that sent Cincinnati into its bye on an upbeat note.

Cowboys 20, Eagles 16

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Tony Romo threw a 49-yard touchdown pass to Miles Austin midway through the fourth quarter and the Cowboys won the 100th meeting between the division rivals. On the final day of the 2008 regular season, the Eagles dominated Dallas 44-6 in a do-ordie game for both teams. Philadelphia earned a wild-card berth with that victory, won two playoff contests on the road and advanced to the NFC championship game, losing at Arizona. The Cowboys (6-2) spent the whole offseason thinking about that horrendous ending. They got their revenge and took over sole possession of first place in the NFC East with their fourth straight victory. The Eagles fell to 5-3 and the New York Giants are 5-4 after a 5-0 start.

Colts 20, Texans 17

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Running back Joseph Addai scored the go-ahead touchdown with 7:11 left and Houston’s Kris Brown missed a 42-yard field goal as time expired, keeping Indianapolis undefeated. Indy is the fourth team in league history with 17 straight wins. New England has done it twice and Chicago did it in 1933-34. Jim Caldwell became the first rookie coach to go 8-0 since Potsy Clark in 1930. The Colts now have a 3 1/2-game lead over Houston (5-4) in the AFC South. Indianapolis blew a 13-0 first-half lead and trailed 17-13 when Steve Slaton opened the fourth quarter with a 1-yard TD run. But Addai answered with a 2-yard TD run to rally the Colts. Peyton Manning also became the first quarterback in league history to throw for 40,000 yards within a decade.

Chargers 21, Giants 20

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Philip Rivers capped an 80-yard drive with an 18yard pass to Vincent Jackson with 21 seconds to play and the Chargers handed New York its fourth straight loss. Rivers was 24 of 36 for 209 yards and three touchdowns, including two to Jackson, in helping San Diego (5-3) win its third straight. The Giants are 5-4 heading into a bye week and not looking very much like a playoff team. In the first meeting between Rivers and Giants quarterback Eli Manning since they were dealt for each other on draft day 2004, Terrell Thomas intercepted Rivers’ pass late in the fourth quarter and returned it 33 yards to the San Diego 4. A holding penalty on first down pushed New York back 10 yards, and it had to settle for a short field goal and a 6-point lead that Rivers and Jackson erased.

Titans 34, 49ers 27

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Six plays after his 81-yard touchdown run was overturned, Chris Johnson took a pitch from Vince Young and ran 2 yards for a go-ahead score. Young showed his comeback is legitimate, outplaying fellow first-round draft pick Alex Smith down the stretch. Young has been clutch twice in as many weeks, getting the Titans (2-6) in the end zone when it mattered. Johnson converted on fourth-and-inches for his TD, making up for those six points negated only a few minutes earlier after video replay determined he stepped out of bounds on the long run. Johnson ran for 135 yards and has 959 halfway through the season. Stunned San Francisco (3-5) has lost four straight following a 3-1 start — and the 49ers have little time to recover. The Bears come to town for a Thursday night game.

Patriots 27, Dolphins 17

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady and Randy Moss connected on two highlightreel plays. Moss set up the Patriots’ first touchdown with a one-handed, 36-yard grab at the Dolphins 1-yard line, then scored on a 71-yard play after catching the ball about 10 yards beyond the line of scrimmage. Miami’s two touchdowns came on possessions on which it used the wildcat most extensively — after gaining just 36 yards on 21 wildcat plays in its previous two games. But New England’s quick-strike ability took back the momentum. The Patriots (6-2) lead the idle New York Jets (4-4) and Miami and Buffalo (both 3-5) in the AFC East. The win was especially important because Miami had been 3-0 in division games and New England only 1-1. Moss caught six passes for 147 yards, while Brady went 25 for 37 for 332 yards, his third straight game with more than 300 yards and team-record 27th of his career. Miami’s Ted Ginn Jr. was held in check after kickoff returns of 100 and 101 yards in last Sunday’s 30-25 win over the Jets.

make it through one season with the Raiders and landed in Washington. Turner and the Falcons (5-3) got the last laugh. The burly running back broke off two long touchdown runs, also scoring from 30 yards as the Falcons built a 24-3 halftime lead. Washington (2-6) looked down and out, losing running back Clinton Portis to an apparent concussion, and Hall lost his cool after LaRon Landry delivered a late hit to Matt Ryan along the Falcons sideline. As flags flew, the outspoken cornerback jumped into the middle of things, surrounded by Atlanta players and coach Mike Smith. Hall was yanked away before any punches were thrown.

Jaguars 24, Chiefs 21

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — David Garrard threw for 264 yards, including a 61-yard touchdown to Mike Sims-Walker. The Jaguars (4-4), up and down all season, responded in similar fashion following losses to Arizona and Seattle earlier this season. The latest turnaround after a defeat came after coach Jack Del Rio ripped his team’s defensive effort in a 30-13 loss at the Titans, calling it “insulting, ugly and embarrassing.” It worked, at least against Kansas City (1-7). Playing without running back Larry Johnson, the Chiefs managed little offense until late in the fourth quarter. With left tackle Branden Albert and center Rudy Niswanger back in the lineup, Matt Cassel threw for 262 yards and two scores — both to newcomer Chris Chambers, claimed off waivers Tuesday from San Diego.

Seahawks 32, Lions 20

SEATTLE (AP) — Matt Hasselbeck rallied the Seahawks from a 17-0 deficit with a franchise-record 39 completions, and Seattle avoided the embarrassment of being the first home team to lose to the Lions in 25 months. Hasselbeck threw an interception on his first play, but finished with the first 300yard passing game in two seasons for the Seahawks (3-5). He was 39 of 51 for 329 yards. Josh Wilson returned an interception 61 yards for a touchdown with 22 seconds left, the last of five interceptions by rookie Matthew Stafford, the top overall pick playing his second game since missing two weeks with a knee injury. That kept the Lions (1-7) from finally flying home happy. Seattle’s first six plays included an interception by Hasselbeck on the first snap; a lost fumble by Justin Griffith forced by former Seahawks linebacker Julian Peterson on the second; two negative-yardage runs by Julius Jones; then another for no gain on a fourthand-inches gamble in their end.

Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll spend time appreciating a recent find — playing with it, admiring it, loving it. This is one of the ways you show gratitude, and it increases your good fortune. It’s not getting what you want that matters, it’s wanting what you get. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re not all smiles and sunshine — not all the time. The tough, funny, angry moods are sprinkled in between your lighthearted ones. And that’s what makes you a real and down-to-earth person. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A champion of the underdog, you sometimes find heartbreak where victory should be. But that just makes the winning all the sweeter, as this roller coaster of a day will demonstrate. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be pushing the boundaries with your attitude. Wear something a little edgy to reflect your rebellious mood. You’re so often perfectly appropriate that you can afford to take a chance once in a while. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Several people want you to do something for them, and you can’t do it all at once. Prioritize your tasks, and feel flattered to be in such great demand. Aquarius and Gemini ties will bring luck. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Some of the communication you receive will be cryptic. It’s perfectly fine to return e-mails and texts with a phone call. Talking in real time will bring instant clarity, plus your phone voice is

FOR BETTER

very appealing to someone. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Take that finicky problem and break it down into littler ones. First approach this, then that... Itemizing your tasks will remove most of that overwhelmed feeling. This will be solved before you know it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You will win over an influential person. No, this is not luck. This is something you earn because of the choices you make. Make plans to celebrate this turn of events, and do it with gusto. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You can sleep easy. Your fears are unfounded. Your friends won’t betray you, your children won’t disappoint you. Create a mantra for yourself along these lines: “I am safe and my relationships support me.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There’s an area of interest you have yet to explore. You didn’t have the time or the means before, but now there is a chance for convenient education, should you pursue this. You will be successful at it, too. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). That thing you feel ridiculous for wanting to try? That’s your heart asking you to take it outside to play. All is fair in life and fun, break-dancing included. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ve been asked to sit through so many tedious, time-consuming explanations that you’ve become adept at pretending to listen. Perk up your ears for real now. Sweet and condensed information is coming your way.
