A hundred years of Wester Local realty and insurance firm, in business since 1881, celebrates a century of family involvement

Please see WESTER, page 3A

OXFORD — Granville County Sheriff Brin Wilkins will hold a news conference at 4 p.m. today at his office about Kelly Currin Morris, who has been missing for more than a year. Wilkins, when reached by the Dispatch on Tuesday evening, said this would be an update, but he could not immediately say anything else about the matter. “I apologize for not being able to, but we’ve got to do some things here tonight,” Wilkins said. “And I wish I could, but I can’t right now.” Wilkins, when asked about whether Kelly Currin Morris’ husband, Scott, remains a person

This early sign, painted on a sheet of tin attached to a light wooden frame, bears the earlier name of the local company now known as Wester Realty & Insurance. The business was first founded in 1881. The Wester family first became involved in 1909 and on Thursday will celebrate their family’s centennial in business.

The Henderson-Vance Downtown Development Commission on Tuesday gave the go-ahead to seek funding to install security cameras in the city center. The commission’s executive committee had already given Downtown Development Director Phil Lakernick the authority to apply for a grant from

the U.S. Department of Agriculture. And Laknerick said merchants are telling him they would be happy to provide money should the mechanical eyes from above be focused within the purview of their buildings. The next step is to get in touch with companies with qualifications to see what their recommendations would be as to how many cameras would be needed and where and then start pricing. “Unfortunately, some people have the misconception that downtown is a dangerous place,” Lakernick said.

“It’s less dangerous than most areas of Henderson, actually,” Lakernick said, referring to Police Department statistics showing “it’s strongly larger” at the shopping area where the Walmart Supercenter is located. “However, it’s always a good idea to have proper security,” Lakernick said, noting the HOPE VI Main Street Revitalization Project that is officially set to start. “We want to give as much protection as possible to everyone.” Lakernick said the request will be through a USDA program that provides grants to assist the

development of businesses. Lakernick additionally said he is looking for grants from the Governor’s Crime Commission and the Weed & Seed program. “We are working directly” with Police Chief Keith Sidwell and Vance County Emergency Operations Director Brian Short, with the understanding the effort will not impact their budgets or personnel, Lakernick said. Tom Anderson cited reports about the cameras being successful in curbing crime. “Well, as you all know, Please see SECURITY, page 4A

New Christmas lights due downtown By WILLIAM F. WEST Daily Dispatch Writer

New Christmas lights will become part of the holiday scene in central Henderson. The Henderson-Vance Downtown Development Commission on Tuesday accepted a $2,250 bid by Breedlove Electric, with the cost to include taking

the lights down. The previous decorations were two-decade old ones, with some of them having shorted out or having become non-functional. The City Council in March agreed to appropriate $9,120 to pay for 42 new Christmas lights for the city center, with the understanding the commission would pay for the

installation of new pole attachments and repairs to the existing pole attachments so the decorations can be properly mounted. The city’s decision at the time to make the purchase saved money and helped expand the area of decoration coverage. Downtown Development Director Phil Lakernick on Tuesday told the commis-

sion the municipal government wanted Christmas lights along Rose Avenue, which is where City Hall is located, and along Breckenridge Street, which is where the Police Department and the H. Leslie Perry Memorial Library are located. The number of lights, Please see LIGHTS, page 4A

Kelly Morris has not been seen for over a year

By DAVID IRVINE Daily Dispatch Writer

A 33-year-old statement by a local businessman emphasizes the degree to which the histories of Wester Realty & Insurance Agency and Vance County are intertwined. “Our roots go back to 1881, the year Vance County came into existence,” said W.D. Wester, according to a 1976 Bicentennial edition of The Henderson Daily Dispatch. This year the agency is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the year the name “Wester” became associated with the company, which occurred some 28 years after the founding of the agency. The centennial celebration will be highlighted on Thursday when the Henderson-Vance County Chamber of Commerce sponsors a “Business After Hours” at the company’s 1020 S. Garnett St. location from 5:30 until 7 p.m.

Recipe courtesy of Sandra Lee, Servings: 10 Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 22 minutes 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon chopped garlic 1 teaspoon oregano 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 1 package (19.76 ounces) Johnsonville Hot Italian Links 1 large onion, cut into 30 pieces 1 green bell pepper, cut into 20 chunks 1 red bell pepper, cut into 20 chunks 10 8-inch bamboo skewers, soaked in water 2 tablespoons chopped parsley for garnish In large bowl combine balsamic vinegar, olive oil, chopped garlic, oregano, brown sugar and mustard. Season with salt and pepper and whisk until well blended. Set aside. Grill the sausage links for 5 minutes per side (turning once). Remove from grill. Cut each Italian link into 6 pieces. Slice onion into wedges and peppers into chunks. Thread a piece of pepper, then sausage, then onion onto skewer. Repeat, alternating pepper colors so there are a total of 4 pieces of pepper, three sausages and three onion pieces per skewer. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Cook skewers on a grill or grill pan over medium heat about 5 to 6 minutes per side. Halfway through cooking process, baste skewers with balsamic sauce. Serve garnished with fresh parsley.

Attempts by the Dispatch and other media to get a comments from a magistrate were unsuccessful. And Wilkins said his department and the State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) are continuing to investigate. The first signs of trouble surfaced shortly before 11:30 a.m. Sept. 4, 2008, when a caller to Emergency 911 reported a fire at Kelly Currin Morris’ residence off Tump Wilkins Road southeast of Stem.

Attorney says prisoners want reworked sentences RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s chief deputy attorney general says some prisoners have asked formally that their sentences be recalculated following a state Supreme Court decision. Grayson Kelley told a legislative committee Tuesday that four or five prisoners have filed petitions with the courts seeking reduced sentences. The Supreme Court ruled in October in favor of prisoner Bobby Bowden and determined a 1970s

law defined a life sentence as 80 years. Prison officials said at least 27 violent criminals qualified for release when the ruling combined with good-conduct credits. But Gov. Beverly Perdue stopped their release because she said those credits shouldn’t apply to people with these life sentences. Kelley said arguments for the first petition could be held next month, with Bowden’s case to follow in January.

Students study the art and science in nature Savi Sandhu, instructor for academically and intellectually gifted (AIG) students at Carver and E.O. Young Jr. elementary schools had an idea of how to tap the artistic, literary and technology talents of her students. She decided to incorporate the art, science and language arts studies of her AIG students in an “Art and Science in Nature” project. The students studied art and life forms and created art work from still life or natural scenery. They also composed poems or wrote paragraphs about their art work and included all of their works in

a PowerPoint presentation. Some of the students made oral presentations about their work and studies at their school’s PTA meeting and at the Oct. 12 meeting of the Vance County Board of Education. “The project really proved a great way to get the students to work on their art skills, writing skills and their public speaking,” Sandhu noted. “The art work was a bit of a struggle, because the children don’t have a lot of experience in doing art work. But, they kept on working at it and, eventually, they really did some very nice work.”

Their poems and paragraphs focused on their piece of art, which mostly included colorful impressionist works of flowers, fruit and landscape scenes. “I hope we can do more of this in the future,” Sandhu added. “It really was a positive experience for the students and they became more confident especially with their art work and their public speaking skills.”

WESTER, from page one The agency was established by James R. Young in 1881, the same year that Vance County was carved out of parts of Franklin, Granville and Warren counties. Young, himself, had a long career with the county and the state. He served as clerk of Superior Court of Vance County and later became the first commissioner of Insurance for the ctate of North Carolina. The fledging company had the distinction of insuring the state Capitol Building in Raleigh before the state began a program of self-insurance. In 1909, 16-year-old Alfred Benjamin Wester became affiliated with the agency, which by that time had been acquired by R.S. McCoin and Robert Lassiter and was named Henderson Loan & Real Estate. When McCoin disappeared in 1933, Wester acquired the agency, which then became known as Al B. Wester Insurance & Real Estate. He and his descendants have owned the company ever since. After Al Wester died, the agency was purchased from his estate by his son W.D. Wester, his daughter Dorothy W. Knott, and William Powell. In 1991, the agency was acquired by the current owners —

Alfred Benjamin Wester, right, in 1909 became affiliated with the company that now bears his name. The person at left is unidentified. Thomas W. Frazier III, John P. Wester and W.D. (Dan) Wester Jr. John and Dan Wester are grandsons of Al Wester. Changes in ownership have not changed the commitment of the agency to Henderson and Vance County, attested to by the fact that each change in the location of the company’s office has kept it in the Henderson business district. From its initial location on Garnett Street where Interiors & Gifts Too is now located, the company has moved to two different locations on Young Street and to 312 S.

Factory production dips; wholesale inflation muted By JEANNINE AVERSA MARTIN CRUTSINGER AP Economics Writers


WASHINGTON — A decline in factory production in October signals that consumers and businesses remain cautious in their spending, with the economic recovery likely to be sluggish. At the same time, the weak economy is taming inflation. Wholesale prices rose less than expected last month, giving the Federal Reserve more leeway to keep interest rates low to try to spur a stronger economic rebound. Industrial production edged up 0.1 percent last month, the Fed reported Tuesday. It was the poorest showing since output fell 0.4 percent in June. Since then, industrial output had posted strong gains, helped by a rebound in auto production. But auto output slipped 1.7 percent last month. That helped drag down total factory output, the biggest portion of industrial production. Analysts say industrial production should post modest gains in coming months, consistent with their view that the economy has begun to recover from the worst recession since the 1930s. But they cautioned that the rebound in manufacturing, just as in other sectors of the economy, will be slow and halting. “We are still dealing with a number of headwinds,” said Sal Guatieri, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets. “Consumers are facing high joblessness and the need to pay down debt further. And other sectors including housing and commercial real estate remain under stress.” Overall industrial production would have fallen except for a 1.6 percent surge at utilities. That gain reflected an unusually cold October

In this Oct. 29 file photo, a line worker works near the Duke Energy Plaza, background in Charlotte, N.C. Industrial production edged up 0.1 percent in October, a smaller-than-expected increase that signals a bumpy recovery ahead. that boosted electricity production. Output in the mining sector, which covers oil and gas drilling, dipped 0.2 percent. The government next week will revise its initial estimate that the overall economy, as measured by the gross domestic product, grew at an annual rate of 3.5 percent in the July-September quarter. But weaker-than-expected reports in retail sales, foreign trade and industrial output, suggest that GDP is likely to be revised lower for the third quarter and remain modest next year. Nariman Behravesh, chief economist at IHS Global Insight, said he expects GDP to be trimmed to around 2.8 percent for the third quarter, then slip to 2.5 percent in the current quarter. Some analysts predict GDP growth will slip to around 1.5 percent in the first half of next year , a pace that will not be fast enough to keep unemployment from rising further. The Fed report showed that production cutbacks

last month affected not only autos, but also appliances, furniture and carpeting, clothing, computer and electronic products, paper products, petroleum and coal products, fabricated metal products and other things. The Labor Department report on wholesale prices showed that core inflation, which excludes volatile food and energy, actually declined 0.6 percent. In the past year, core wholesale prices have risen 0.7 percent, the smallest gain in more than five years. High unemployment helps restrain labor costs, which enables companies to hold prices down. The unemployment rate jumped to 10.2 percent in October, a 26-year high. Some economists say the jobless rate could rise as high as 11 percent by the middle of next year before starting to drift slowly downward. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke warned Monday that “headwinds” — including rising unemployment and hard-to-get credit — will restrain the recovery. The expectation of low inflation gives the Fed leeway to hold rates low for an “extended period,” Bernanke said Monday, repeating a pledge made at the central bank’s meeting earlier this month. The Fed isn’t expected to start raising rates until after the jobless rate peaks, probably around mid-2010. The overall rise in wholesale prices reflected a 1.6 percent jump in energy prices as gasoline rose 1.9 percent. Oil prices rose as high as $81 per barrel in October, up from a price around $70 in September. Elsewhere, food prices last month rose 1.6 percent, driven by a 24.2 percent jump in vegetable prices, the most in two years. Egg, fruit and milk costs also rose.

GM gets tax break to stay in headquarters By KATHY BARKS HOFFMAN Associated Press Writer

LANSING, Mich. — General Motors Co. is promising to keep its headquarters in Detroit in return for expanded state tax credits. The Michigan Economic Growth Authority on Tuesday approved extending If you miss your paper call before 11 a.m.


the credits the company won in June for agreeing to build a new small car at a plant near Pontiac. The tax credits will now cover some workers at GM headquarters. The agreement says GM must keep 22,500 employees in Michigan rather than just 20,000 to get tax credits, including

around 2,500 in the Detroit headquarters. About 4,000 people work there now. GM spokesman Greg Martin says the number of employees to remain in Detroit is being worked out with state officials. Martin says GM is looking at moving some Detroit employees to other GM sites in staff realignments.

WEDNESDAY Late Evening


One year ago: Detroit’s Big Three automakers pleaded with Congress for a $25 billion lifeline, warning of a national economic catastrophe should they collapse. Belgium-based InBev SA formed the world’s largest brewer with its $52 billion takeover of U.S.-based Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc.


On this date: In 1883, the United States and Canada adopted a system of Standard Time zones. In 1909, President William Howard Taft ordered two warships to Nicaragua, a day after the government of President Jose Santos Zelaya executed two American mercenaries along with several hundred revolutionaries. Lyricist Johnny Mercer was born in Savannah, Ga. In 1928, Walt Disney’s first sound-synchronized animated cartoon, “Steamboat Willie” starring Mickey Mouse, premiered in New York. In 1958, the cargo freighter SS Carl D. Bradley sank during a storm in Lake Michigan, claiming 33 of the 35 lives on board. In 1966, U.S. Roman Catholic bishops did away with the rule against eating meat on Fridays outside of Lent. In 1969, financier-diplomat Joseph P. Kennedy died in Hyannis Port, Mass., at age 81. In 1978, U.S. Rep. Leo J. Ryan, D-Calif., and four other people were killed in Jonestown, Guyana, by members of the Peoples Temple; the killings were followed by a night of mass murder and suicide by more than 900 cult members.

Shawn Allen Berry of murder for his role in the dragging death of James Byrd Jr., but spared him the death penalty. Five years ago: Former Ku Klux Klansman Bobby Frank Cherry, convicted of killing four black girls in the racially motivated bombing of a Birmingham, Ala., church in 1963, died in prison at age 74. Britain outlawed fox hunting in England and Wales. (Scotland had already outlawed hunting.)




Today’s Highlight: On Nov. 18, 1959, “BenHur,” MGM’s Biblical-era spectacle starring Charlton Heston and directed by William Wyler, had its world premiere at Loew’s State Theatre in New York.

included in the price. Also included are tips for writing a love letter -- and those letters that are the hardest of all, letters of condolence. Included are specific suggestions on what to say, and equally important, what NOT to say when someone is grieving the loss of a parent, a child or a spouse whether the death may be sudden or after a lingering illness. DEAR ABBY: When my husband and I married two years ago, we both wanted children. I am having second thoughts now. We recently discovered that there’s a genetic disorder on one side of the family, and it scares me to think we may not have a healthy child. To be perfectly honest, even if we could have a healthy child, I am also not sure I want to go through the challenge of parenting a teenager. How should I approach my dear husband about my change of heart? — SECOND-GUESSING IN N.Y. DEAR SECONDGUESSING: Be gentle, but be honest. Rather than say you don’t want kids, start by saying you are having serious doubts about whether you would be good parent material. Then tell him why. This will probably be the first of many discussions you’ll have with him on the subject, touching on whether your marriage can withstand your change of heart. Not every woman is meant to be a mother — and better to recognize that fact before becoming one rather than after. That said, you could also change your mind again. Many women have. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

DEAR ABBY: Please don’t think I’m stupid for asking this, but I need some help. The practice of letterwriting appears to be a dying form because of e-mail and texting — which I’m good at. But when I receive a nice gift, I know the proper way to acknowledge it is to write a thank-you letter. Can you please tell me how to do one that doesn’t come across as awkward? Christmas is coming and this is hard for me. When I try to get my thoughts down on paper, I am ... STUCK! DEAR STUCK!: There’s no such thing as a “stupid” question, and your problem Dear is one that is shared Abby by many. Universal Press A thankSyndicate you letter doesn’t have to be long and flowery. In fact, short and to-the-point can be more effective. I have found that keeping a notepad handy when I open a gift and jotting down the first thought that comes into my head when I open the package is helpful. (Hint: Is it soft? Cuddly? Tasty? Something you had wanted but had not been able to find? Clever? If the answer is yes, then write it down.) And by the way, Christmas isn’t the only gift-giving occasion when a thank-you letter is called for. There are also weddings, anniversaries, graduations. My booklet “How to Write Letters for All Occasions” offers samples that can be adapted and personalized. It can be ordered by sending your name and mailing address, plus a check or money order for $6 (U.S. funds), to Dear Abby, Letters Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447.

Kittrell Job Corps Center takes part in Make a Difference Day On Oct. 24, Kittrell Job Corps Center students joined millions nationwide in observing Make a Difference Day, a national day designated for helping others. Make a Difference Day was created by USA Weekend Magazine and is an annual event that takes place on the fourth Saturday of every October. A total of 29 students and staff participated in activities. Kittrell Job Corps Center partnered with the Henderson Boy Scouts Troops 607, Vocational Rehabilitation and the America Red Cross to conduct its Make a Difference Day activities. At Area Christians Together in Service (ACTS), students stocked and inventoried canned goods in the food pantry, and prepared and served lunch to the needy and homeless. The Boy Scouts worked alongside Job Corps students (above) washing windows, buffing floors and conducting general cleaning in and around the Workforce Solutions Thrift Store on S. Garnett St. The students also mentored Workforce Solutions clients working on computer assignments given by their Vance-Granville Community College instructor. Job Corps students also assisted the Department of Social Services with its foster care program fundraiser by donating cookies to sell that were made by the culinary arts students. Staff members also volunteered to prepare plates to sell.

Attorneys Donald D. Pergerson and Brandi Richardson accept the Henderson Community Appearance Commission’s quarterly award for improving and renovating their new law office located at 235 Dabney Dr. Jane N. Rush (left), co-chairperson of the commission with Grace O’Geary, presented the award.

News Briefs Navy sets new bird study at N.C. landing field site

Obama taps N.C. attorney for Federal Trade Commission

RALEIGH (AP) — The Navy is conducting another bird study at a proposed North Carolina site for a practice landing field for jets fighters. Surveys will be conducted from November through February to track migratory patterns. The Navy wants to build a landing field for F/A-18 Super Hornets to practice carrier takeoffs and landings before deployments. Three sites in southeastern Virginia and two in northeastern North Carolina are under consideration. Opponents of the landing field are questioning the need for an additional study, saying the Navy has at least two winter’s worth of data. U.S. Fleet Forces Command spokesman Ted Brown said the study provides a more complete picture of the site’s environmental impact.

RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s consumer protection chief for Attorney General Roy Cooper has been picked to join the Federal Trade Commission. President Obama nominated Julie Brill to the five-member commission that oversees consumer protection and lawful competition in the economy. The White House announced the nomination Monday. Brill joined Cooper’s Department of Justice in February as senior deputy attorney general. She previously served as an assistant attorney general in Vermont for more than 20 years. Brill is also a lecturer at Columbia University School of Law. The Senate must confirm the nomination of Brill, who would serve a seven-year term.

N.C. manufacturer to provide care packages to troops GREENSBORO (AP) — Workers at a North Carolina aircraft manufacturer will be sending care packages to troops who have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. The News & Record of Greensboro reported on its Web site that the 500 10-pound packages are being sent courtesy of the employees at Honda Aircraft Co., who are participating in Operation Deep Appreciation. They will go to soldiers from Fort Bragg and Marines from Camp Lejeune who have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Included in the packages are socks, Q-tips, batteries, mints and playing cards. There will also be a handwritten note asking the troops to work to come back home safe and sound. Honda expects to invest more than $100 million and create more than 600 jobs once the plant reaches full production in late 2011.

Vigils held after body of N.C. girl found By ALYSIA PATTERSON MARTHA WAGGONER Associated Press Writers


SANFORD — The father of a 5-year-old girl whose body was found off a rural North Carolina road regrets giving the girl’s mother a chance to raise their daughter, even though she seemed to be getting her life together. The girl’s father, Bradley Lockhart, said he had a one-night stand with Antoinette Davis and mostly brought up their daughter before letting Davis take care of her. Shaniya A month later, Shaniya Davis was dead, her body dumped off a rural road and her mother accused of selling her for sex. “Lord, I come to you with open arms and it is hard. It is hard,” Lockhart said Monday night as he stood among a crowd of about 500 gathered in a store parking lot for a vigil. “Don’t give up on me and don’t give up on Shaniya. She’s right there with you.” On Monday, searchers discovered the girl’s body off a rural road, nearly a week after her mother reported her missing from a mobile home park in Fayetteville. Fayetteville police said Tuesday that additional charges will be filed in the case, though they did not offer more specifics. An autopsy was being conducted to determine how Shaniya died. Hundreds of volunteers who helped look for Shaniya left the search area dejected, unable to bring her home to her father, 7-year-old brother and the dolls she so loved. “I still feel kind of sick to

Antoinette Davis listens Monday to charges against her. Davis is the mother of the missing 5-year-old who was found dead off a heavily wooded road in a rural area southeast of Sanford. my stomach,” said Angela Jackson, 27, of Sanford, who has a 2-month-old daughter and searched for consecutive days. A dog trainer who was there when Shaniya’s body was found said Tuesday that searchers initially overlooked the area because they saw only deer carcasses in trash bags. Jeff Riccio of Tarheel Canine Training Inc. said his team returned to the area after getting information that Shaniya’s body might be near deer carcasses. The searchers found the body Monday afternoon underneath thick vines. “It was nothing that anybody wants to see, but I’m glad that it’s over for her,” Riccio said. “It was very hard for me to see that.” Shaniya’s mother, 25-year-old Antoinette Davis, is charged with human trafficking and felony child abuse. She was calm and quiet during a court appearance Monday, providing oneword answers to the judge’s questions. She requested a court-appointed attorney and did not enter a plea.

Her sister, Brenda Davis, 20, said she does not believe the charges. “I don’t believe she could hurt her children,” said Brenda Davis, who spoke with her sister at the jail Sunday. Davis’ aunt, Yvonne Mitchell, said the mother had two jobs and would never harm Shaniya. Authorities also charged Mario Andrette McNeill, 29, with kidnapping after they said surveillance footage from a Sanford hotel showed him carrying Shaniya. Authorities said McNeill admitted taking the girl, though his attorney said he will plead not guilty. Fayetteville police spokeswoman Theresa Chance declined to talk about additional charges. She also would not comment on a cause of death or the condition of Shaniya’s body, except to say that investigators planned to retrieve it about 100 feet off the road. “Detectives have been running off adrenaline to find

this little girl and to bring her home alive,” Chance said. “You have a lot of people in shock right now.” Shaniya’s father said he raised his daughter for several years but last month decided to let her stay with her mother. He had pleaded for her safe return.Lockhart told The Associated Press on Saturday that he and Davis never argued about him raising Shaniya, and Cumberland County courts had no record of a custody dispute. He said he did not know McNeill. Davis struggled financially over the years, but she recently got a job and her own place, so Lockhart said he decided to give her a chance with their daughter. “I should’ve never let her go over there,” he said Saturday night.

“PINK EYE” Conjunctivitis, which is popularly referred to as “pink eye,” is one of the most common reasons for visits to the eye doctor’s office. This inflammation of the conjunctiva (the outermost layer of the eye and inner surface of the eyelids) is caused by an allergic reaction or a viral or bacterial infection. Not only are the viral and bacterial infections highly contagious (either from eye to eye on one patient or one person to another), they produce unsightly discharges, tearing, swelling, and redness. To make matters worse, the affected eyes often feel itchy and gritty on their surfaces. For all the above reasons, young children with conjunctivitis are often asked to stay home from school until the condition is resolved. Pink eye, or conjunctivitis, is a common eye ailment that has affected many of us, and is usually more prone in people who have allergic conditions. As in most diseases, early detection is important. Let us help you change the way you or your children see the world. At FOUR COUNTY EYE ASSOCIATES, we offer total eye care. For a comprehensive eye examination, we urge you to call us at 492-8021 to schedule an appointment. Our goal is to provide you with the most effective eye care. Our office is located at 451 Ruin Creek Road, Henderson Professional Plaza, Suite 204. P.S. While conjunctivitis usually runs its course in 10-14 days, antibiotics (for bacterial conjunctivitis) and topical corticosteroid drops (for viral conjunctivitis) can help reduce discomfort and inflammation.

Daily Meditation Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the Lord helped me. The Lord is my strength and song, and is become my salvation. Psalm 118:13-14

Our Opinion

Palin pans pic Sarah Palin — former Alaska governor and last year’s vice-presidential nominee on the losing Republican ticket — has created a stir with her new book “Going Rogue.” In the tome, Palin takes on not only Democrats and the media — which was entirely to be expected — but also lands a few blows against the John McCain campaign. The various targets all have snappy comebacks and we’re not in a position to judge exactly which party is right or has been wronged. But we are intrigued by another little Sarah Palin tiff going on in the media. That is, the use of a … well … sorta sexy photo of the 45-year-old former teen beauty queen that appears on the cover of the latest Newsweek. The news magazine chose to illustrate its cover story on Palin — a piece dubbed “How Do You Solve A Problem Like Sarah? She’s bad news for the GOP — and for everybody else too” — with a picture of the ex-gov that was originally taken from a photo-shoot for Runner’s World magazine months ago. Palin is wearing a tight-fitting red top and black shorts that highlight her, shall we say, “level of fitness.” “The choice of photo for the cover of this week’s Newsweek is unfortunate,” wrote Palin on her Facebook page. She called it “sexist, and oh-so-expected.” Newsweek editor John Meacham defended the photo selection. “We chose the most interesting image available to us … which is what we always try to do,” Meacham told “We apply the same test to photographs of any public figure, male or female: does the image convey what we are saying? That is a gender-neutral standard.” Meacham’s statement is, in our minds, something of a half-truth. Perhaps the shortshorts photo of Palin was indeed “the most interesting image available” to Newsweek — that is, the one most likely to make us all stop at the newsstand, gawk at Meacham’s magazine, and possibly buy it. But it’s hard to envision Newsweek deciding that “the most interesting” picture to illustrate the fitness for office of a male politician such as President Barack Obama or former President George W. Bush would be one of them in running shorts, though both men don workout gear and exercise regularly. And yet we doubt that Palin is really all that perturbed over the picture. After all, it sure seems to help her grab a potential voter’s attention.

Quotable “My priority is the population, before the insurgents. But when the insurgents prevent me from having contacts with the population or, like in this case, attack the population, then I react. I repeat my priority is the population and improving their life. The insurgents are a problem we treat separately.” — Brig. Gen. Marcel Druart, in remarks after rockets slammed into a market northeast of Kabul, killing 12 civilians but missing their presumed target: a meeting between France’s top general in Afghanistan and dozens of tribal elders and senior local officials. “U.S. consumers are no longer panicked, but they remain cautious. They are spending just enough to keep the economy out of recession, but not enough to fuel a self-sustained expansion.” — Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s in a statement after economists said that retail sales have exceeded expectations but they don’t expect to see significant spending until well after year’s end.

I get where President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder are coming from. They think that if we change our way of life, the terrorists will have won. In principle, I agree. If upholding our values makes fighting the war on terror harder, then it should be harder. That’s why I don’t care much that it will cost more money to try suspected terrorists in the Big Apple than it would in the state-of-the-art facility at Guantanamo Bay. Similarly, while the security concerns stemming from a trial in New York are real, I think we can handle them. And, again, just because something is harder or more dangerous, that doesn’t necessarily mean we shouldn’t do it. That’s the whole point behind “millions for defense but not one cent for tribute.” Some things just aren’t for sale. Nonetheless, I think the decision to send Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and his buddies to a civilian trial is a travesty. Ultimately, the disagreement is one of first principles. If we are at war, then the rules of war apply. The fact that this is a war unlike others we’ve fought should not mean that it isn’t a war at all. Don’t tell that to Obama. He’s made it clear that he doesn’t see the threat as an unconventional war but as a conventional law-enforcement

problem. The attorney general insists that 9/11 is a matter for civilian courts. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says attacks such as 9/11 should be thought of as “mancaused disasters.” Her top priority after the Fort Hood shootings was to bring Maj. Jonah Nidal Malik Goldberg Hasan to justice Tribune Media — a fine Services answer for a law-enforcement official but not from someone charged with protecting the homeland. The war on terror itself has morphed into “overseas contingency operations.” Just as telling, Obama insists that the decision to move Mohammed to civilian court was entirely Holder’s. This is deceptive nonsense. Even if technically true, the choice to let Holder make the decision was the real decision. The commander in chief opted to hand off jurisdiction over enemy combatants to the cops. He can’t duck that responsibility by saying it wasn’t his call. But there’s a more immediate problem. This won’t be a show trial, strictly speaking. But it will be a trial for show.

Prominent defenders of the decision insist that this trial is at least partly to benefit America’s image around the world. That’s a laudable goal — and another example of why this is not a mere law-enforcement issue. But I’m dubious that will be the result. Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) defended the administration Sunday on Fox News, echoing suggestions from the White House that even if the accused are acquitted on a technicality, they won’t be released. They would go back to the legal purgatory known as “preventive detention.” That is the right policy; these are dangerous men, after all. But it is an affront to civilian jurisprudence. Under military law, preventive detention is a well-established norm. Under civilian law, it’s an affront. Throw into the equation that these men weren’t read their rights, were interrogated in a manner that is illegal in civilian courts, are being tried with little if any possibility of an impartial jury — and the fact that Holder all but insists they’ll be convicted — and it all adds up to a farce. Moreover, the administration has not abolished military tribunals. Holder is sending the al-Qaida suspects in the attack on the destroyer Cole to one. Hence, enemies who attack us abroad are treated like enemy combatants with fewer rights, while terrorists

who managed to kill civilians here at home are treated like American citizens. That is perverse. If history is a guide, this trial will unavoidably come at a cost in terms of leaked intelligence and propaganda victories for our enemies. Obama’s defenders don’t believe it. “Does anyone think,” asks Joshua Micah Marshall, a prominent liberal blogger, that the “Nuremberg trials ... advanced (the defendants’) causes?” Obama himself invoked the Nuremberg trials during the presidential campaign. “Part of what made us different was even after these Nazis had performed atrocities,” he explained, “we still gave them a day in court, and that taught the entire world about who we are but also the basic principles of rule of law.” Such arguments are revealing on at least two counts. First, the Nuremberg trials were military tribunals — it was understood that the Nazis were not mere criminals. Second, they took place after we had won the war against Nazi Germany. We could afford such a spectacle because the Nazi cause was dead. Meanwhile, the war on terror lives. Just don’t tell that to Barack Obama.

Army suicides to top 2008, but progress reported By PAULINE JELINEK Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — Soldier suicides this year are almost sure to top last year’s grim totals, but a recent decline in the pace of such incidents could mean the Army is starting to make progress in stemming them, officials said Tuesday. Army Vice Chief of Staff General Peter Chiarelli said that as of Monday, 140 active duty soldiers were believed to have died of selfinflicted wounds so far in 2009. That’s the same as were confirmed for all of 2008. “We are almost certainly going to end the year higher than last year ... this is horrible, and I do not want to downplay the significance of these numbers in any way,” he said. But Chiarelli said there has been a tapering off in recent months from large surges in suspected suicides in January and February. “Our goal since the beginning has been to reduce the overall incidence of suicide and I do believe we are finally beginning to see progress being made,” Chiarelli told a Pentagon press conference.

He attributed those hints of a turning to some unprecedented efforts the Army has made since February to educate soldiers and leaders about the issue. Officials are still stumped about what is driving the historically high rates across the military force. When asked whether the rates reflect unprecedented high stress from long and repeated deployments to provide manpower for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Chiarelli said he didn’t know. “The reality is there is no simple answer,” he said. “Each suicide is as unique as the individuals themselves.” The rising suicide rate is not unique to the Army. Marine Corps suicides also are higher again this year — there were 42 reported as of Oct. 31 compared with 42 for all of 2008, 33 in 2007 and 25 in 2006. Though the two ground forces have borne most of the fighting in the two current wars, both the Army and Marines have found that about a third of the self-inflicted deaths were among troops that had never deployed to the battles. Chiarelli said that on top of the 140 suicides reported from the

active duty Army force, there were another 71 suicides by troops in the National Guard and Reserve. All of the numbers are preliminary in that investigations into some of the deaths are still ongoing. Of the 140 so far this year among active duty troops, 90 have been confirmed as suicides and 50 are suspected but the probes are not yet finished. Each year, nearly all suspected suicides are eventually confirmed. For instance in 2008, there were 143 suspected and 140 were eventually confirmed. Chiarelli said officials will continue to focus on things that are symptoms of high-risk individuals such as undiagnosed brain injuries like concussions; on Post-Traumatic Stress, and on risky behavior such as poor diet and sleep habits as well as more serious behaviors such as drug and alcohol abuse. The Army widened its suicide prevention in March in an attempt to make rapid improvements. In October, the service introduced its Comprehensive Soldier Fitness program, which Chiarelli called “the biggest step ... taken to enhance wellness in the entire force through prevention rather than treatment.”

The program aims to put the same emphasis on mental and emotion strength as the military traditionally has on physical strength. Basic training now includes anti-stress programs as part of a broader effort to help soldiers deal with the aftereffects of combat and prevent suicides. Also last month, the Army started using a new screening questionnaire to try to determine preexisting or current mental health issues among troops as part of the enlistment process. Despite those campaigns, another jump in suicide figures for 2009 would make it the fifth straight year that such deaths have set a record within the military. Last year’s 140 record erased a high 115 in 2007 and 102 in 2006. Chiarelli said officials are concerned with increases this year at Fort Campbell, Fort Stewart and Schofield Barracks and are trying to learn why suicides rates are down at Fort Hood, Fort Bragg and Fort Drum. At Fort Campbell in Kentucky there were 18, while at Fort Bragg, N.C., which has almost double the population, there have been six all year.

Using some bases as examples of the trend downward, Chiarelli said that of the 18 suicides reported this year at Fort Campbell, 11 of those were in the first four months of the year. At Schofield Barracks in Hawaii, there were seven all year so far — five in the first five months of the year and only two since. The numbers kept by the service branches don’t show the whole picture of war-related suicides because they don’t include deaths after people have left the military. The Department of Veterans Affairs tracks those numbers and says there were 144 suicides among the nearly 500,000 service members who left the military from 2002-2005 after fighting in at least one of the wars. The true incidence of suicide among military veterans is not known, according to a report last year by the Congressional Research Service. Based on numbers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the VA estimates that 18 veterans a day — or 6,500 a year — take their lives, but that number includes vets from all previous wars.

News Briefs Catholic bishops say gay marriage hurts society BALTIMORE (AP) — The nation’s Roman Catholic bishops have affirmed that the church defines marriage between one man and one woman, and sex is meant for procreation. The pastoral letter was issued Tuesday in Baltimore by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. The bishops say they are disturbed that a growing number of people view marriage as a private or individual matter, instead of an issue critical to building a healthy society. They say in the pastoral letter that redefining marriage to allow same-sex unions would damage the common good and would ignore the proper role of husbands and wives.

Fox’s Garrett gets Obama interview NEW YORK (AP) — President Barack Obama

will give an interview to Fox News Channel’s Major Garrett, perhaps signaling a thaw in relations between the network and administration. The White House confirmed Tuesday that Garrett will be included among a round of network interviews that the president is giving Wednesday in Beijing. Garrett also posted news of the interview on Twitter. Fox and the administration have been in a public fight since former White House communications director Anita Dunn said the network acted like the research or communications arm of the Republican Party. The president pointedly avoided Fox when he gave a round of interviews to Sunday shows about his health care plan.

San Diego Zoo panda cub gets name SAN DIEGO (AP) — A baby panda born at the San Diego Zoo has been named Yun Zi — Chinese for “Son of Cloud.”

The black-and-white ball of fur was born on Aug. 5, but Chinese tradition calls for a 100-day wait before naming. The name announced Tuesday came from 6,300 recommendations by the public. Yun Zi is the fifth cub born to the zoo’s 300-pound mother panda, Bai Yun, whose name means “White Cloud.” Yun Zi weighed about 4 ounces when he was born but now weighs more than 10 pounds.

S.C. lawmaker: Affair not enough to impeach COLUMBIA, S.C.

Harrell’s statement came the same day a fellow Republican filed a measure to impeach Sanford because he left the state.

Authorities: Mom gave up baby to suspected dealer

she gave her 9-month-old daughter to a suspected drug dealer because she was homeless, addicted to methamphetamine and unable to care for the girl. Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Lt. Don Hutson says deputies found the child Monday while searching a home as part of a drug investigation. He says a 38-year-old woman arrested on suspi-

cion of distributing methamphetamine told officers that she had been caring for the child for a week. He also says the woman had a document allegedly signed by the girl’s 23-yearold mother transferring guardianship of the child. The child has been taken into state custody. The mother is not being investigated for possible charges.

Study: Miniature heart pump boosts heart failure survival By MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Medical Writer

ORLANDO, Fla. — For the first time, a miniature heart pump shows the potential to become a widely used, permanent treatment for many older people with severe heart failure. But can we afford it? In a study of 200 patients, the new device increased by four times the number who survived at least two years compared with an older pump that had drawbacks limiting its use, doctors reported Tuesday. However, the HeartMate II costs $80,000 plus $45,000 or so for the surgery and the hospital stay necessary to implant it. “It will allow older people who are not heart transplant patients to stay alive but at a higher cost. It’s all about who’s going to pay,” said Cleveland Clinic heart chief Dr. Steven Nissen, who had no role in the research. Even now, “the amount of money spent in the care of advanced heart failure patients is extraordinary,” said Dr. Robert Harrington, heart research chief at Duke University, which helped test the device. “These are societal questions — how much is too much?” Study results were presented Tuesday at an American Heart Association conference and published by the New England Journal of Medicine. About 5 million Americans have heart failure, which occurs when the heart weakens over time and cannot pump enough blood. Heart transplants are one solution. But few patients find a donor, and many are too old or sick for a transplant. Left ventricular assist devices, or LVADs, can be implanted next to the heart to help it pump. However, current ones wear out too fast to be long-term solutions, and survival remains dismal — only half of patients live a year and only one-quarter live two years. The HeartMate II, made by Thoratec Corp. of Pleasanton, California, is the first of a new generation of smaller pumps that push blood continuously rather than simulating a heartbeat as older pumps do. A wire from the patient’s abdomen connects the pump to equipment outside the body — a small computer and batteries that the patient wears in a belt pack or harness. The device was approved last year for short-term use in people awaiting a transplant. The new study tested it as a permanent therapy in people with severe heart failure who were not candidates

for a transplant. The study was sponsored by Thoratec, and many study leaders consult for the company or rival device makers. While other manufacturers make similar pumps, the study was the first large test of these new-generation devices as a permanent treatment. It enrolled 200 severely ill patients as young as 26 and as old as 81. Two-thirds got the new device. The rest received an older HeartMate pump. After two years, 46 percent of those on the new pump and 11 percent of those on the old one were alive without having suffered a stroke or a device failure. A cost-effectiveness study has not been done, but doctors hope the new device will prove cheaper by preventing the many complications and hospitalizations these patients endure now, said Duke’s Dr. Joseph Rogers, a study co-leader. There is a high death rate from the surgery or soon after it: 14 percent with the newer pump and 25 percent with the older one. Even so, most patients will still risk the surgery “because the alternative is worse,” and far more perish without a device, said study co-leader Dr. Mark Slaughter, heart surgery chief at the University of Louisville.

It was an easy choice for Chuck Sixour, a retired school administrator in suburban Knoxville, Tenn. “I’m 78. My heart’s probably 90, but I feel 60, and the doctors tell me I look 60, mainly because I’ve been very active all my life,” he said. He received the new device in August 2007 as part of the study. And now? “You name it — I do it,” he said. “I golf two or three times a week. I go shopping with my wife.” Many older people are healthy other than having weak hearts, said Dr. Alfred Bove, a Temple University heart specialist and president of the American College of Cardiology. “There are so many of these people that would enjoy life if we could get them out of heart failure,” he said. Not all are old, either. Leonor Ortiz Childers, a 46-year-old lawyer in North Carolina, developed heart failure when she had to be treated for breast cancer while pregnant with twins. The federal Food and Drug Administration allowed her to receive a HeartMate II for emergency use a year ago. Now, with four children under 4, the device makes it possible “to live a fairly normal life,” she said. “Every day I can hug my children. And as long as I have that, I’m a happy woman.”

Neighborhood checkpoints in D.C. ends WASHINGTON (AP) — The District of Columbia has decided not to appeal a court ruling that found its police checkpoints in a highcrime neighborhood were unconstitutional. In a court filing Monday, D.C. Attorney General Peter J. Nickles said Police Chief Cathy Lanier has canceled the special order authorizing the Neighborhood Safety Zone program. Last year, police stopped cars in the Trinidad neighborhood, refusing to let in motorists who didn’t prove they lived in the area or reveal their destinations. A civil liberties group sued on behalf of three drivers. A three-judge panel of a federal appeals court found the program was unconstitutional and the full appeals court declined to grant a hearing on the case.

Royal Greinke named AL Cy Young winner By RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK — Zack Greinke won the American League Cy Young Award on Tuesday, easily beating out Felix Hernandez after a spectacular season short on wins but long on domination. Greinke went 16-8 with a major league-low 2.16 ERA for the Kansas City Royals. Hernandez was 19-5 with a 2.49 ERA for the Seattle Mariners. Greinke received 25 of 28 first-place votes Greinke and three seconds for 134 points in balloting by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. Hernandez drew two firsts, 23 seconds and

one third for 80 points. “I thought it was going to be real close between the two of us,” Greinke said. Detroit’s Justin Verlander was third with the remaining first-place vote and nine thirds for 14 points. He was followed by the Yankees’ CC Sabathia with 13 points and Toronto’s Roy Halladay with 11 points. The NL winner will be announced Thursday. Naturally shy, Greinke quit baseball for six weeks in 2006 because of what was diagnosed as a social anxiety disorder. He welcomed the award, mostly. “There’s a lot of positive to it and a lot of negative to it — not a lot but some,” he said during a telephone conference call. “I really don’t like having a bunch of attention.” Please see GREINKE, page 4B

Good start for Spartans

Kerr-Vance withstands late surge for season-opening win By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor

Franklin Academy made it interesting at the end, but the Spartan advantage was too much to overcome in KerrVance’s 63-55 season-opening win Tuesday night. KVA rolled into the fourth quarter with a commanding 4830 lead. But the Patriots were relentless in the final frame. The Pat defense pressured KVA into committing turnovers. They opened with a 15-4 run to close the lead to 52-45 with 3:30

to go. “We could not put them away. They kept scrapping,” KVA coach David Carrier said of the Patriots. It was the closest they would get, however, as KVA held them to just five points the rest of the way. “I don’t want to say we got selfish, but we got a little too sure of ourselves. We tried to take them one-on-one more than sharing the ball like we usually do,” said Carrier. “I give a lot of credit to Franklin Academy. I thought

they fought. They never gave up.” The Spartans jumped out to an early 16-8 lead after the first quarter. Franklin showed some early-season jitters, turning it over nine times. Several of the turnovers were KVA steals. “I think it was the first game for both teams, and I think it’s fairly typical. Everbody’s a little nervous, a little unsure on both teams.” Cameron Capell connected for two three-pointers, scoring Please see SPARTANS, page 3B

Pats early rally too much for KVA in opener By ERIC S. ROBINSON Dispatch Sports Editor

Franklin Academy set the tone early, opening up Tuesday’s game at Kerr-Vance with a 9-1 run and holding on to the lead the rest of the way in a 52-35 win over the Spartans. Trailing 16-5 after the opening quarter, the Spartans hung with the Patriots in the final three, getting out-scored 36-30 in those quarters. The Patriots put pressure on KVA early, and the Spartan offense had trouble getting anything going. A bucket from Candice Vaughn finally broke the game-opening run, and made the score 9-3 a little less than four minutes in. The KVA defense got stingy in the second quarter, creating turnovers and taking advantage. Shameka Valentine scored two straight baskets on Spartan steals, and Franklin’s Rachel Towner ended the brief run with a 3. Still, the Spartans out-paced the Pats 13-11 in the quarter and cut into their lead. Franklin carried a 27-18 lead into intermission. Despite turning it overs seven times in the third quarter, Franklin Academy extended their lead in the third quarter. The Spartans couldn’t get the big rally they needed in the

No. 2 Spartans rally to beat Gonzaga By LARRY LAGE AP Sports Writer

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Durrell Summers hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 3:02 left, made two at the line with 5.7 seconds to go and finished with 21 points to help No. 2 Michigan State rally for a 75-71 win over Gonzaga on Tuesday night. The Spartans (2-0) won their 41st straight game at home against a nonconference team, extending a streak that started after a lost to Duke on Dec. 3, 2003.

a three-point lead and finished with 19 points. Raymar Morgan scored 16 off the bench. Michigan State scored first, then was out played by Gonzaga for much of the game. The Bulldogs led by 13 midway through the first half and were ahead 35-30 at halftime. They built another double-digit lead early in the second half, but were hurt by the 7-foot Sacre getting called for a third foul and 7-5 reserve Will Foster getting a fourth foul shortly after halftime. Michigan State freshman Derrick Nix made a putback with 11:52 left in the game to put the home team ahead for the first time since the opening minute. The Bulldogs, though, re-

fused to wilt in the raucous Breslin Center despite having one of their youngest teams since becoming one of college basketball’s stronger programs. Sacre made a shot midway through the second half to put Gonzaga ahead by seven and a fadeaway with 4:42 to go for a 65-61 lead. The Spartans made enough shots and stops in the final minutes in a game that will get them ready to play Florida, North Carolina and Texas before Big Ten play. Gonzaga, hoping to reload instead of rebuild, also faces a tough schedule with games against Wake Forest, Arizona or Wisconsin, Duke, Oklahoma and 23rd-ranked Illinois before starting its West Coast Conference slate.

Monroe’s lay-up gives No. 19 G’Town 46-45 win over Temple By JOSEPH WHITE AP Sports Writer

WASHINGTON — Greg Monroe scored on a driving layup with 6.5 seconds to play, rescuing No. 19 Georgetown from a lackluster Tuesday afternoon performance to give the Hoyas a 46-45 win over Temple. Georgetown won despite having more fouls (18) and turnovers (16) than made baskets (15). The Hoyas blew a 12-point second-half lead, shot 36 percent from

the field and 3 for 18 from 3-point range. Chris Wright had 15 points, and Monroe had 11 points and nine rebounds for the Hoyas (2-0). Lavoy Allen had 12 points and 14 rebounds for the Owls (1-1), who nearly recovered from an abysmal first half to pull out the win. Temple could have put the game away if it had made its free throws down the stretch. The Owls made 6 of 13, and Ramone Moore’s miss on the front end of a 1-and-1 with a

one-point lead and 23 seconds to play gave Monroe and the Hoyas the chance to win it. After Monroe scored, the Owls had a final chance to win, but Juan Fernandez was tied up for a jump ball while driving to the basket with 1.3 seconds to play. Temple had won 68 straight games when holding opponents to under 50 points. The Owls shot 19 percent (5for-26), Georgetown a relatively robust 30 percent (7-for-23). During one painful stretch, the

teams combined to miss 11 straight shots. The Hoyas appeared to get their act together at the start of the second half, opening with an 8-2 run, but Allen and Moore started playing as if they were ready to lead the Owls to a third straight Atlantic 10 title. A 24-6 run gave Temple a six-point lead and all the momentum, but Monroe looped in a high shot on a baseline drive and added a free throw for a three-point play that started a 9-0 Hoyas run.

(AP) — Jeff Allen recorded a double-double and Virginia Tech broke open a tie game with an 11-0 run midway through the second half en route to a 59-46 victory over UNCGreensboro on Tuesday night. “This time of the year, you’re going to see scores like this,” Virginia Tech coach Seth Greenberg said. “I’m not embarrassed by this.” UNC-Greensboro tied the game at 38 on a basket by Kyle Randall with 10:48 remaining. But Allen and Malcolm Delaney sparked Virginia Tech’s 11-0 run, with Delaney scoring seven of those points. Delaney’s 3-pointer with 6:39 left gave the Hokies a 49-38 lead and the Spartans got no closer than nine points the rest of the way. There are areas that I’m disappointed in,” Greenberg said. “But as we grow, if continue to win games, that’s fine. Let’s learn from this. That’s what we’re trying to do. If we were where we needed to be today, then we wouldn’t have anything to look forward to.” Allen finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds for his 20th career doubledouble. Delaney added 17 points for Virginia Tech (2-0) despite going just 6-for-16 from the floor. The Hokies shot just 37.5 percent and made just 1 of 13 from beyond the 3-point arc. “We played good on defense,” Delaney said. “I wasn’t disappointed in our defense. We just couldn’t hit shots and we missed a lot of free throws (10-of-18 from the line). That was disappointing, but we’ll be fine.” Randall and Mikko Koivisto paced the Spartans (0-2) with 10 points each. Koivisto scored all of his 10 in the first half, but in the second half, Virginia Tech’s Dorenzo Hudson blanketed him. Koivisto didn’t get a shot attempt in the final 20 minutes.

The Tigers (2-0), who needed to rally late last year to beat the Flames at Clemson, had no such issues in the game that began at 10 a.m. They led 17-1 before the Flames made their first field goal — with 13:02 left in the first half — and by a wide margin throughout. Potter matched his career high of 12 points on 4-for-4 3-point shooting in eight minutes. It never got better for the Flames (1-2) under first-year coach Dale Layer. Clemson led 42-19 at halftime, giving it enough points to win.

Price, Lapierre lead Canadiens to shootout win over Canes MONTREAL (AP) — Carey Price stopped all six Carolina attempts in the shootout, Maxim Lapierre scored the winner and the Montreal Canadiens beat the Hurricanes 3-2 Tuesday night. Price stopped Tuomo Ruutu, Jussi Jokinen, Rod Brind’Amour, Sergei Samsonov and Bryan Rodney before Lapierre finally beat Carolina’s Manny Legace on Montreal’s sixth attempt. Price then got enough of Matt Cullen’s shot off a deke on the Hurricanes’ next attempt to leave the puck on the goal line to the delight of the sell-out crowd. Price, who tied a team record with 53 saves Saturday, stopped 30 shots, including consecutive saves on Brandon Sutter and Erik Cole during the waning seconds of overtime while Carolina enjoyed a 4-on-3 advantage. Montreal was left shorthanded 3:01 into overtime after Jaroslav Spacek was assessed a double minor for

DUKE, from page 1B points to lead the overmatched 49ers (2-1). Sloppy play and 33.9 percent shooting kept them from their first 3-0 start since 1995 and denied them a second straight victory against a ranked opponent dating to last season’s win against then-No. 17 Xavier. They had 17 turnovers — 12 in the first half, when this one was decided. Charlotte was expected to provide some measure of resistance for the Blue Devils, who were shorthanded during their first two games due to forward Mason Plumlee’s broken left wrist and Smith’s two-game suspension yet routed North CarolinaGreensboro and Coastal Carolina by an average of nearly 30 points. But with Smith back in the lineup after sitting out for playing in an unsanctioned summer league, Duke had little trouble claiming its NCAA-record 71st straight nonconference victory at Cameron Indoor Stadium and 31st consecutive home win against an unranked opponent. The Blue Devils, three-time champions of the preseason NIT, improved to 20-2 in the event. “(Smith) changes the dynamic of their team,” Charlotte coach Bobby Lutz said. “They weren’t pushing the ball nearly as much (without him). We knew they would, and had we had days of preparation, we probably would have slowed the game down, but we’re not built that way. ... We wanted to pick our spots, but they almost wouldn’t allow that to happen.” If Smith wasn’t de-

termined to make up for lost time, it sure seemed that way. He reeled off eight quick points in just more than 3 minutes, surpassed his previous best — a 21-point outing at Wake Forest two seasons ago as a freshman — roughly 8 minutes into the second half and finished 9 for 15. “When I’m in the game, the coaches want us to look to push tempo and be aggressive, getting into the paint and making plays for myself and for others,” Smith said. “That’s what I went out there and did.” Meanwhile, Charlotte’s offense at times resembled a one-man show. Spears, a transfer from Boston College who was no stranger to the Cameron Crazies, had his second straight 20-point performance as a 49er. But none of his teammates had more than six points — a big reason why Charlotte was denied its first victory against a top 10 team since 2004. Miles Plumlee added 15 points and 11 rebounds and Brian Zoubek added 13 boards for the Blue Devils, who made the first half look like one 20-minute-long burst of dominance. They went up 14-2 before the 49ers’ first basket — Rashad Coleman hit a layup roughly 3 1/2 minutes in — as part of the 20-6 burst they used to begin the game. By the midpoint of the half, they were up by 20 on Scheyer’s 3-pointer in transition, and pushed the lead to 30 on Singler’s finger-roll with 3 1/2 minutes before the break.

Bills fire Dick Jauron after 3-6 start By JOHN WAWROW AP Sports Writer

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Dick Jauron was fired by Buffalo on Tuesday with the Bills off to a 3-6 start and among the lowest scoring teams in the NFL. The team said Jauron’s replacement would be announced later. Jauron’s successor is expected to come from the current staff and be on an interim basis only. Candidates include assistant head coach Bobby April and defensive coordinator Perry Fewell. The Bills are averaging just over 15 points per game on an offense that acquired Terrell Owens this season but remains unsettled at quarterback. The defense is riddled with injuries, and has allowed an NFL-worst 173 yards rushing a game. Bills owner Ralph Wilson called it “a very dif-

ficult decision,” but noted it was “one that needed to be made at this time for the best interest of our team.” The move comes two days after Buffalo returned from a bye week and were beaten 4117 by the Tennessee Titans. Jauron Jauron leaves with a 24-33 record over threeplus seasons. “I really don’t have anything to say,” was all Jauron would say when reached on his cell phone by The Associated Press. The Bills play at Jacksonville on Sunday. Buffalo, which has not made the playoffs since 1999, has now gone through four coaches since the end of the 2000 season, when Wade Phillips was

dismissed. Gregg Williams was not rehired after his three-year contract expired, while Mike Mularkey abruptly resigned after a front-office shakeup following the 2005 season. Jauron was hired by general manager Marv Levy, who took over the post following Tom Donahoe’s dismissal. Jauron has been on the hotseat ever since last season, after he led the Bills to their third consecutive 7-9 finish. Expressing a need for continuity, Wilson elected to retain Jauron. The Hall of Fame owner, however, noted that he was aware of Bills fans’ dissatisfaction with the team, and warned that he wasn’t going to be “complacent” in seeking improvements, particularly on offense. Those improvements haven’t come even after the team made a big splash in free agency by

signing Owens to a oneyear $6.5 million contract in March, days after the receiver was released by Dallas. Owens hasn’t provided a spark to an offense that has been undone by a young and inexperienced offensive line and poor play at quarterback, whether it’s starter Trent Edwards or backup Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Bills haven’t generated 300 yards offense in eight of nine games this season, including their past seven. They also haven’t had a quarterback generate 200 yards passing since Edwards had 230 yards in a 33-20 win over Tampa Bay in Week 2. Jauron opened the season by firing offensive coordinator Turk Schonert, and replacing him with Alex Van Pelt, who had no experience beyond being the team’s quarterbacks coach.

Delhomme: no guarantee Panthers keep no-huddle By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTE — Jake Delhomme talks of being comfortable in it. Steve Smith raves about it. DeAngelo Williams is a fan, too. The no-huddle offense was a hit in Carolina on Sunday, producing two touchdown passes from Delhomme to Smith in a victory over Atlanta. But Delhomme hinted Tuesday that folks hoping it will become a regular part of the offense may be disappointed. Blame left tackle Jordan Gross’ broken ankle and the cramming going on ahead of Thursday’s game against Miami. “I enjoy it, but to say you can do that throughout the course of the whole season, I don’t think you can do that,” Delhomme said. “And certainly losing Jordan, I don’t know how much we can really dive into it, especially on a short week.” The new wrinkle has Dolphins coach Tony Sparano on notice, however. He acknowledged they had to adapt a game-plan they had already begun to put in place last week with only three days off between games. “It presents some challenges, particularly in a short week,” he said. The Panthers have had the no-huddle in the playbook since training camp, but had used it almost exclusively in the 2-minute offense. That changed on

the second series Sunday, when the Panthers surprised the Falcons with Delhomme calling his own plays at the line of scrimmage. It produced touchdowns on the first two drives as Carolina built a 21-10 halftime lead. Smith called it “controlled chaos,” while Williams, who rushed for 92 yards, said it opened up the run game. “It showed we’re not just a one-dimensional team,” he said. “We can pass the ball.” It also marked the third straight game Delhomme went turnover-free after 13 interceptions in the first six games. “It’s satisfying to see Jake get his confidence back,” said receiver Muhsin Muhammad, who had six catches for 91 yards in his return from a knee injury. It puts Delhomme his element. He breaks the huddle with a certain number of plays — he wouldn’t say how many — and makes the call based on what he sees from the defense. “Try to be a coordinator,” Delhomme said. “Try to call whatever plays we have called, and we have a wide variety we can choose from. The good thing is we can get into a lot of different formations. Guys can play multiple positions, so that’s always good.” Smith and Muhammad have experience playing both the X and Y receiver positions. Carolina’s tight ends can also block from

the fullback spot. It allowed the Panthers to keep the Falcons off-balance. “I feel very comfortable in that situation,” Delhomme said. But the win came at a cost. Gross was carted off the field in the second quarter with a broken right ankle. The Panthers moved veteran Travelle Wharton from left guard to Gross’ spot. Second-year pro Mackenzy Bernadeau replaced Wharton. Center Ryan Kalil thinks the new-look line could still operate effectively in the no-huddle. “Mentally it’s not challenging as much as it is physically,” Kalil said. “You’ve got to catch your breath and roll down the field, keeping making plays.” Delhomme completed 15 of 24 passes for 195 yards Sunday, while Carolina ran the ball 34 times. It’s close to the balance missing the last two weeks when the Panthers were one-sided with the run. Delhomme hinted Tuesday that they want to control time of possession more against the Dolphins, which might lead them to want to slow down the offense. Carolina held the ball nearly 3 minutes less than the Falcons. But history shows putting Delhomme in an environment where’s had success — the 2-minute offense — and letting him throw it some — but not too much — determines Carolina’s fortunes. Counting the playoffs,

GREINKE, from page 1B Even before winning, this was sure to be a big week for Greinke. He is getting married on Saturday to high school girlfriend Emily Kuchar, a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. Greinke’s ERA was the lowest in the AL since Pedro Martinez’s 1.74 ERA in 2000 and his 242 strikeouts were second in the league behind Verlander. It was quite a turnaround for the 26-year-old right-hander, who was the sixth overall pick in the 2002 amateur draft but led the AL in losses in 2005 when he went 5-17. He left spring training in February 2006 and went home to Florida. He started working out in the minors about six weeks later and returned to the majors in late September. Greinke was 7-7 the following year and 13-10 in 2008 before his breakout season. After speaking with a pair of pitchers on opposing teams — he wouldn’t identify them —

he credited an improved mental approach in which he put all his focus on the pitch he was throwing. His victory total matched that of Arizona’s Brandon Webb three years ago for the fewest by a starting pitcher to win a Cy Young Award in a non-shortened season and was the fewest by an AL starter to win in a fulllength season. Steve Carlton was the only Cy Young Award winner who pitched for a club that was worse. The Hall of Fame lefty was an astounding 27-10 with a 1.97 ERA for the 1972 Philadelphia Phillies, who went 59-97. Kansas City, which tied for last place in the AL Central at 65-97, scored just 13 runs in his eight losses and 21 runs in his nine no-decisions. He failed to get a victory in six starts in which he allowed one run or none. He was particularly sharp at the start and finish, going 5-0 with a 0.50 ERA in April and 5-0

with a 1.29 ERA in his last eight starts. He didn’t allow any runs in his first three starts and any earned runs in his first four, and his 0.84 ERA through 10 starts was the first below 1.00 in the major leagues since Juan Marichal’s 0.55 in 1966. He struck out 15 over eight innings against Cleveland on Aug. 25, then followed five days later by pitching a onehitter at Seattle. After Kenji Johjima’s soft second-inning single, Greinke retired his final 22 batters. Greinke, who agreed to a $38 million, fouryear contract last winter, receives a $100,000 bonus for winning. The first-place votes for Hernandez came from Chris Assenheimer of The Chronicle-Telegram in Elyria, Ohio, and Mark Feinsand of the Daily News in New York. Verlander’s first-place vote was cast by Steve Kornacki of Booth Newspapers in Michigan.

Delhomme is 50-7 when he throws 30 or fewer passes. He’s 9-31 when he throws more than 30. “What makes Jake such a great asset to our team is he’s a good field general,” Kalil said. “He’s somebody who in the huddle, outside the huddle, he does a great job coordinating and putting guys in the right positions. Obviously, in the no-huddle that’s extremely important.” NOTES: Delhomme said he visited Gross in the hospital Monday as he recovers from surgery. “Typical Jordan fashion, he apologizes for getting his leg broke,” Delhomme said. ... DE Charles Johnson (pectoral) joined the normal list of players missing practice, which included RB Jonathan Stewart (Achilles’), FB Brad Hoover (ankle) and S Charles Godfrey (ankle). DT Damione Lewis (shoulder) was limited. ... DE Julius Peppers wasn’t listed on the injury report and wasn’t wearing a cast in the locker room after being limited Sunday because of a right hand injury.

Newly acquired Cincinnati Bengals running back Larry Johnson, right, sits next to head coach Marvin Lewis as he speaks during a news conference at Paul Brown Stadium Tuesday in Cincinnati.

Larry Johnson agrees to terms with Bengals By JOE KAY AP Sports Writer

CINCINNATI — Running back Larry Johnson signed with the Cincinnati Bengals in a backup role Tuesday, giving the AFC North leaders depth at the position for the rest of the season. The Bengals waived defensive tackle Orien Harris to open a roster spot for Johnson, who will be fourth on the depth chart at the outset. The move comes eight days after the Kansas City Chiefs let him go as he was set to return from his second suspension in the last 12 months. The Bengals have one of the NFL’s leading rushers this season in Cedric Benson, but he has a strained hip muscle. Coach Marvin Lewis first spoke with Johnson last Thursday and told him he would be last on the depth chart. He said he told Johnson he essentially will be an insurance policy in case Benson or one of the other running backs got hurt during what’s shaping up as a playoff season. Benson had to leave an 18-12 win in Pittsburgh on Sunday with a hip injury. The Bengals (7-2) think he could play Sunday in Oakland. Johnson is moving into a low-profile role. Lewis plans to use him on the scout team in practice, where he would pretend he’s the other team’s running back. Lewis doesn’t

expect him to be active for any games soon. Johnson turns 30 on Thursday, and his production has declined in recent years. The Chiefs let him go following several controversies, releasing him last week on the day he was due back from his second suspension in the last 12 months. He found a second chance in Cincinnati, which has a history of providing them for troubled players. Owner Mike Brown has referred to himself as a “redeemer.” He brought Chris Henry back to the team before the 2008 season — over Lewis’ disagreement — and the receiver has stayed out of trouble since then. Henry is out for the rest of the season with a broken left arm. When injuries decimated their group of running backs last season, the Bengals signed Benson to a one-year deal despite his off-field problems. He had two alcohol-related arrests in Texas. The cases were dropped when grand juries declined to indict, and the Bengals offered a deal. Benson has revitalized his career in Cincinnati — he ranks sixth in the league in rushing with 859 yards and leads the NFL with 205 carries, only nine shy of his career high with roughly half a season to go. His backup, Bernard Scott, is a rookie chosen in the sixth round from Abilene Christian.

Knicks have to decide if Iverson is their Answer By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

GREENBURGH, N.Y. — The New York Knicks passed on a chance to sign Allen Iverson last summer. A few months and only one victory later, they have to decide if he’s worth reconsidering. Iverson will soon be on the market again after the Memphis Grizzlies announced they were parting ways with the former scoring champion. And while the Knicks weren’t interested in the offseason, they won’t rule him out yet.

“We had our little group from last year we wanted to keep together and that was the decision in the summertime, not to disrupt what we had,” coach Mike D’Antoni said Tuesday. “Now, basketball’s fluid and things change every second.” D’Antoni and team president Donnie Walsh both praised Iverson’s abilities, but said the organization still had to discuss whether it’s worth bringing him to a 1-9 team that is off to the worst 10-game start in franchise history. Walsh wouldn’t say

much more, because Iverson hadn’t even been waived yet by the time the Knicks finished practice. “I’ve always had a lot of admiration for him because I had to play against him every year when I was in Indiana and I have a lot of respect for his career,” Walsh said. “He’s a small man who did everything he could to win games and took a lot of hard knocks and always got up.” But the Iverson of today would give any team pause. He’s been hurt and unhappy over the last two seasons, with the Grizzlies the only team to make

use up any future salary cap space. Plus, he’s still popular with many fans — some of whom have already grown impatient with Walsh’s plan to rebuild through free agency next summer that left the team so vulnerable this season. “I don’t think we’ve changed our philosophy in that we want to be competitive now. We want to do everything we can to win right now, within the framework of keeping 2010 open like we talked about,” D’Antoni said. “Whatever it takes that makes us competitive and

to win right now, I think we’ll do as an organization.” D’Antoni said both he and the former MVP could adjust to each other, even though Iverson might not be a natural fit in his offense. But he stopped short of saying the Knicks would or should pursue the 34-year-old guard. “He’s been a force in this league for God knows how long, so I’m not taking anything from him,” D’Antoni said. “But at the same time, there’s a lot of organizational stuff we’ll talk about and see if it makes sense.”

VANCE COUNTY 4-H A Rich History And A Bright Future

Vance County 4-H club work began in 1914 under Hattie F. Plummer, Home Demonstration Agent in Vance County from 1914-1946. Vance County 4-H had a youth win the state competition in food preparation in 1937 and another 4-H youth win in rural electrification in 1938. A female Vance County 4-H member was selected to represent North Carolina 4-H in 1938 on a trip to Bermuda. These were the first of many state and national recognitions for Vance County 4-H youth.

1920’s 4-H Encampment at Balance Rock in Bobbitt Community. Directed by Mrs. Hattie F. Plummer, Home Demonstration Agent, and Mr. J. W. Sanders, Agricultural Agent, Vance County Center of NC Cooperative Agricultural Extension Service, now NC Cooperative Extension.

Mrs. Esther Burgess Roscoe Winston, served as the first Negro home economics agent in Vance County from 1949-1976. In that position, she also had 4-H responsibilities. The state recognized Mrs. Winston when Vance County became the first county in the state to organize Negro 4-H clubs countywide.

Top 2009 Vance County 4-H Highlights Vance County 4-H has served 231 youth in 2009 with at least six hours of program contact. Overall, 644 youth received some form of 4-H programming this year. Thirty-seven adult and ten youth volunteers have led 4-H programs in Vance County so far in 2009. On November 7, 2009, the new Pine Lake 4-H Club held its first meeting. This is the first new 4-H club to be established in Vance County in many years. This year, we celebrate 100 years of 4-H in North Carolina. Please consider becoming a Vance County 4-H Centennial Donor by making a tax-deductible donation so that more Vance County youth can be served.

Good Taste

Spicy Italian Sausage and Pepper Skewers with Balsamic Glaze



s teams take to the field in a battle for victory, fans head into “Tailgateville,” firing up the grill and cooking a pre-game feast. More than 20 million Americans tailgate in a stadium parking lot yearly, and Food Network’s Sandra Lee has the winning recipe for the total tailgating experience — food, football and fun. “The best part of football is the tasty tailgate with your friends,” said Sandra Lee. When you are tailgating, you’ll want to consider SemiHomemade® recipes that are easy to make and full of flavor. To make sure you get to spend time with friends and still enjoy the game, Sandra Lee has some great recipes in her new cookbook, “Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade Weeknight Wonders” to help you keep entertaining simple and semi-homemade. Whether the hungry fans at your gathering are craving brats, Italian or smoked sausage, there are plenty of varieties to choose from. Sandra Lee makes the most of Johnsonville Sausage in these recipes for Turkey Sausage with Apple Sauerkraut, Spicy Italian Sausage and Pepper Skewers with Balsamic Glaze, and Beer Brats. Best of all, they can be prepared ahead of time and brought along to the game. No matter where you catch the action — in the stadium parking lot before kickoff, or from the comfort of home — a delicious tailgate is key to making game day something to cheer about. For more great recipes and grilling tips, visit or

Turkey Sausage with Apple Sauerkraut

Recipe courtesy of Sandra Lee, Servings: 6 Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 21 minutes 1 package (13.5 ounces) Johnsonville Smoked Turkey Sausage 2 tablespoons canola oil 1 small head green cabbage, thinly shredded 1 medium onion, sliced 2 teaspoons garlic, chopped 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 2 Fuji apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices 1 can beer, Guinness 3/4 cup cider vinegar 1 tablespoon brown or whole-grain mustard 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1 tablespoon fresh sage, chopped 6 grinder rolls, if desired Cook sausage on an outdoor grill or grill pan over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes per side. While sausage is cooking, heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add cabbage, onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until the cabbage has wilted slightly, about 4 minutes. Add apples, beer, vinegar, mustard, brown sugar and sage. Stir until incorporated; bring to a simmer for 5 minutes. Add sausage to cabbage mixture, cover partially with lid to allow some steam to escape. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until cabbage and apples are tender, about 8 minutes. Serve as-is or on grinder rolls.

Recipe courtesy of Sandra Lee, Servings: 10 Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 22 minutes 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon chopped garlic 1 teaspoon oregano 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 1 package (19.76 ounces) Johnsonville Hot Italian Links 1 large onion, cut into 30 pieces 1 green bell pepper, cut into 20 chunks 1 red bell pepper, cut into 20 chunks 10 8-inch bamboo skewers, soaked in water 2 tablespoons chopped parsley for garnish In large bowl combine balsamic vinegar, olive oil, chopped garlic, oregano, brown sugar and mustard. Season with salt and pepper and whisk until well blended. Set aside. Grill the sausage links for 5 minutes per side (turning once). Remove from grill. Cut each Italian link into 6 pieces. Slice onion into wedges and peppers into chunks. Thread a piece of pepper, then sausage, then onion onto skewer. Repeat, alternating pepper colors so there are a total of 4 pieces of pepper, three sausages and three onion pieces per skewer. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Cook skewers on a grill or grill pan over medium heat about 5 to 6 minutes per side. Halfway through cooking process, baste skewers with balsamic sauce. Serve garnished with fresh parsley.

Beer Brats

Reprinted with permission by Hoffman Media, LLC, Servings: 10 Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes Grill Time: 20 to 25 minutes 2 packages (19.76 ounces each) Johnsonville original bratwurst 2 14.9-ounce cans stout beer, Guinness 10 buns Sauerkraut Dijon mustard In large heavy-bottomed pot, combine bratwurst and beer. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Preheat grill to medium-high heat (350° to 400°F). Spray grill rack with nonstick, nonflammable cooking spray. Remove brats from pot. Grill brats for 20 to 25 minutes, turning every five minutes. Place one brat in each bun. Top with desired amount of sauerkraut and mustard and serve immediately.


















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









Now arrange the circled letters to form the surprise answer, as suggested by the above cartoon.

(Answers tomorrow) KNELL MAGNUM FARINA Jumbles: PIANO Answer: Important to have when you go hunting — A “GAME” PLAN


Today’s answer

HOROSCOPES ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you can’t seem to stick to the “program,” then don’t fight it. Let yourself stray into your own little world. Your imagination will take you to magical places perfectly catered to you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Quiet and calm is your style now, and keeping your environment hushed will be essential to your productivity. If you can’t control the various elements around you, go where they’ll be controlled for you — maybe the library. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll make connections, just like you always do. What’s remarkable is how immediately useful these ties will be. It seems that your prayers have been answered in the form of social opportunities. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The lengths some people will go to look respectable — take it as a tipoff. Those who try too hard are compensating for something. For business and pleasure, seek those with quiet, unassuming confidence. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be successful when you follow your nature. So don’t try to straighten your curly hair or be modest when you want to show off. Act on your impulses. Be free as a child. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ve heard it said a million times that money can’t buy happiness. Most of the things you want to buy today will only be a pain to maintain, insure and store. Consider renting.

by Mike Argirion and Jeff Knurek


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When you make a promise, you don’t rest until you deliver upon it. Use this fact to keep yourself in line with your own goals. Take the thing you want and promise someone else you’ll make it happen. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are growing your skill set. There is a task that you want to master, but it hasn’t been easy for you to do so. If you can’t do it right, do it often. Eventually you’ll get it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ve been fighting for your work. It would be a shame to turn a temporary defeat into a permanent loss. Use today’s respite to regroup. You have “weapons” you haven’t thought to bring out yet. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may have been up late last night. Either that, or your dreams were so engaging that they actually took a lot out of you. If you have trouble getting motivated this morning, lay low and wait for your second wind. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Even if you can’t eliminate the problem at its source, develop a few coping mechanisms to make the best of it. Look away from the computer regularly, indulge in a little celebrity gossip… PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Somehow you manage to put other people’s interests before your own without selling yourself short or making yourself small. You just love people, and serving others is as natural to you as breathing air.
