JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

ARTINSBURG — Nearly 400 employees were stationed Monday at Potomac Edison’s Williamsport, Md., operational headquarters and about 150 line crews were poised to respond to potential widespread power outages in the Eastern Panhandle as the First Energy-owned utility company prepared for Hurricane Sandy.

It’s probably actually more than that with West Virginia, probably closer to 400 employees who are poised and ready to respond to the storm. “In addition to that, we have been able to get about 150 contracted line crews, and they’ll be used in both Maryland and the Potomac Edison area there in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia,” Meyers said. First Energy has warned customers to prepare for power outages that could last for as long as seven to 10 days across its entire coverage area.

gency responders, the Department of Highways, law enforcement officers, the American Red Cross and neighboring counties. Dr. Sheri Hoff, with the Jefferson County Board of Education, announced from her post at the EOC that Jefferson County Schools will again be closed today. All students and staff are to remain home, she said. Hoff said the Board of Education will make announcements regarding potential continued closing of school on a daily basis. She said the automatic email and telephone system will notify parents and employees as decisions are made.

Hoff said 10,685 phone numbers are programmed into the automated system, and she encouraged parents to make sure their information is up-to-date with the school system so that timely messages can be delivered. The county’s health department closed early on Monday and will remain closed Tuesday; however, representative Sandy Hite said that any public health issue could be addressed through the EOC. She, along with Jeff Jeffries of WVUH-East, Jefferson Memorial Hospital, indicated that emergency measures have been taken to secure extra food and water at the hospital for patients and staff. Jeffries said that often there is a potential surge of patients in a natural disaster and that the hospital is well prepared for any emergency. Jeff Polczynski, director of the Emergency Communications Center, said his department is ready for emergencies that could arise. “We have communication with all critical agencies including the Department of Highways, city streets and public safety” he said. “Extra staffing is on hand.

This is what we do every day, so we are prepared.” Polczynski said that citizens should report emergencies using 9-1-1; however, non-emergency concerns should come through the EOC hotline at 304-7286345. For those experiencing power outages, reports should be made to 1-888LIGHTSS. Miller asked for the public’s patience in dealing with emergency situations caused by the storm. “This is expected to be a long and extended event,” Miller said. “We appreciate the emergency responders who have worked for the last five days in preparation for the worst and for their efforts to come in the next few days.” Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin issued a State of Emergency in West Virginia that went into effect Monday at noon. The decision was made based on forecasts of snow and rain in counties throughout the state as well as high winds associated with the hurricane. Tomblin advised residents to be prepared for power outages and to stay off the roadways once the high winds begin.

Meyers said Monday line crews in the area were currently staged at different places, ready to go wherever the greatest need is. “We’re still at that point where we know it’s coming. It’s not quite here yet, and we need to see where the biggest problems are going to be,” Meyers said. He said the Eastern Panhandle area can expect anywhere from three to six inches of rain and wind gusts as high as 75 mph over the course of a 24-hour period. He said the greatest wind intensity was expected to begin around 8 p.m. Monday night, and lasting overnight into today. “We’re getting ready for all those contingencies. We’ve also reached out to retirees and continue to do that to see if they can come in and help out,” Meyers said. He said line crews that have come in from out of the area to help include crews from Indiana, Ohio and South Carolina. Other line crews are scheduled to arrive today from Florida, and Meyers said the utility company is continuing to reach out to get more. First Energy is reaching out as far north

Employees who work as meter readers will be used as hazard responders throughout the storm and will be tasked with protecting the public from downed electrical lines until line crews arrive to repair them. “We have multiple disciplines for multiple different jobs just ready and waiting to go,” Meyers said. “I know you’ll begin to see them move into certain areas.

Paw Paw hunkers down for storm

Tuesday, October 30, 2012 — Page A3

BY JOHN MCVEY

JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

PAW PAW — Officials in Paw Paw were preparing Monday for Hurricane Sandy’s onslaught. “We’re setting up a shelter at the senior center in Paw Paw if it’s needed,” Police Chief Timothy Harthun said in a telephone interview Monday. “We’ve beefed up staffing. We’re working with the emergency services in case there are water rescues and fire departments to make sure they have water supply.” Mayor Alton Wolfe added that the town’s water tanks had been filled manually to give the town an extended water supply. If W.Va. 9 along the Cacapon River floods , Paw Paw could be cut off, officials said. According to the National Weather Service, the Cacapon River near Great Cacapon is expected to quickly rise Monday afternoon, reaching flood stage of 9 feet at about 4 a.m. today and cresting at 14. feet at about 5 p.m. today. “We could be isolated for a brief period of time,” Harthun said. “If needed, we would set up a medical center and staff it with emergency medical technicians until we could get patients to a hospital.” “We can sustain ourselves,” he continued. “This community is remarkably self-reliant. The community pulls together, neighbors help neighbors.” “We’ll weather it,” Alton said. The Potomac River at Paw Paw is expected to reach flood stage of 25 feet at about 4 p.m. today and crest at 30.5 feet at about 3 a.m. Wednesday, according to the NWS. Morgan County Sheriff Vince Shambaugh said the residents were hunkering down. “We expect the worst (Monday night),” he said in a telephone interview Monday. “We’re opening shelters at Greenwood Volunteer Fire Department and the old War Memorial Hospital on Fairfax Street.” If residents have to evacuate their homes, Shambaugh said they should first try to find shelter with family or friends. If that is not possible, they should go to the shelters. “If you go to a shelter, take toiletries, medicines and bedding,” he said. “People should limit travel, do not drive through standing water and do not go near downed power lines.” As of Monday afternoon, David Michael, director of Morgan County’s office of emergency management, said conditions were worsening significantly. “I expect flooding by sundown,” he said.

Communication blackout likely

BY HOLLY SHOK

JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

MARTINSBURG — With Hurricane Sandy bringing high wind and rain, area residents should prepare for widespread power and communication outages for extended periods of time, according to a report issued by the National Weather Service in Baltimore/Washington. A flood watch and a high wind warning, which calls for expected rainfall of between three to six inches and possible higher amounts locally, was issued by the service and went into effect 2 a.m. Monday and will last through tonight. According to the City of Martinsburg Fire Department’s Captain Greg Hoover, residents should take refuge in the lower level of their house in instances of high winds and stay inside and off of the roads at all times, with the exception of emergency situations. Hoover said the fire department urges people to use caution and stay away from downed wires. If you see a downed power line that is not creating an emergency situation, he said, contact Potomac Edison directly. However, if the situation is creating an emergency, such as a tree fire resulting from downed lines, call 911. Residents, within the city of Martinsburg, may also contact the Martinsburg City Public Works Department to report fallen trees or blocked roadways.

Those using backup power sources, such as heaters, candles, gas appliances and gasoline or diesel-powered generators, should use caution dealing with an open flame, Hoover said. Additionally, portable heaters and gasoline or diesel-powered generators can produce deadly levels of carbon monoxide. Commercial buildings, Hoover said, should shut off items that are three-phase powered. Hoover asked residents to understand that in emergency situations affecting entire areas, emergency responders who are flooded with incoming calls will be delayed but as prompt as possible in responding. “Make plans. Everyone needs to understand that if they have an emergency we will get to them as quickly as possible,” Hoover said. “We cannot get to everyone right away. Everybody has to be responsible for themselves.” Hoover also asked that those who are capable and able check in on elderly or less able-bodied neighbors. The fire department’s No. 1 emergency preparation recommendation, Hoover said, is to have an emergency preparedness kit on hand. Hoover said to build an emergency supply kit based on the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) model. According to FEMA’s website, a basic emergency supply kit includes the following items: ¯ Water — one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days — for

In preparation for one of the most anticipated storms in recent memory, and with the safety of our staff and drivers in mind, The Journal hit the presses hours sooner than it normally would. At press time, the potential impact of Hurricane Sandy was still weighing heavily on the minds of Eastern Panhandle residents. By the time you read this we will have assessed some of the initial damage Hurricane Sandy has brought to our region and on the nation as a whole — knowing full well that more could be on the way. Be it flooding, power outages or downed trees across the region, we must keep our thoughts with those who, in the midst of uncertainty, head into the wake of destruction to help people they don’t even know. Emergency personal and power company workers throughout the country have descended upon the Eastern Seaboard in hopes of alleviating the effects of Sandy’s destruction as quickly as possible. While most of us are smartly heeding the warnings of officials from state to state, these brave men and women are leaving behind their own families to help ours. What we have learned from weather-related adversity in the past is that no amount of self-reliant preparation for such events is as much help as the first responders who serve and protect us — and the good neighbors who often take risks and make sacrifices to ensure others are not in danger. During the uncertainty of the next several hours, make sure we keep our thoughts and prayers with those putting themselves at risk for the safety of others.

‘Cooling out’ the voters

Page A4 — Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Confidence men know that their victim — “the mark” as he has been called — is eventually going to realize that he has been cheated. But it makes a big difference whether he realizes it immediately, and goes to the police, or realizes it after the confidence man is long gone. So part of the confidence racket is creating a period of uncertainty, during which the victim is not yet sure of what is happening. This delaying process has been called “cooling out the mark.” The same principle applies in politics. When the accusations that led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton first surfaced, he flatly denied them all. Then, as the months passed, the truth came out — but slowly, bit by bit. One of Clinton’s own White House aides later called it “telling the truth slowly.” By the time the whole truth came out, it was called “old news,” and the clever phrase now was that we should “move on.” It was a successful “cooling out” of the public, keeping them in uncertainty so long that, by the time the whole truth came out, there was no longer the same outrage as if the truth had suddenly come out all at once. Without the support of an outraged public, the impeachment of President Clinton fizzled out in the Senate.

THOMAS SOWELL Syndicat ed Columnist

We are currently seeing another “cooling out” process, growing out of the terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi on September 11th this year. The belated release of State Department e-mails shows that the Obama administration knew, while the attack on the American consulate was still underway, that it was a coordinated, armed terrorist attack. They were getting reports from those inside the consulate who were under attack, as well as surveillance pictures from a camera on an American drone overhead. About an hour before the attack, the scene outside was calm enough for the American ambassador to accompany a Turkish official to the gates of the consulate to say goodbye. This could hardly have happened if there were protesting mobs there. Why then did both President Obama and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice keep repeating the story that this was a spontaneous protest riot against an anti-Islamic video in America? The White House knew the

facts — but they knew that the voting public did not. And it mattered hugely whether the facts became known to the public before or after the election. What the White House needed was a process of “cooling out” the voters, keeping them distracted or in uncertainty as long as possible. Not only did the Obama administration keep repeating the false story about an antiIslamic video being the cause of a riot that turned violent, the man who produced that video was tracked down and arrested, creating a media distraction. All this kept the video story front and center, with the actions and inactions of the Obama administration kept in the background. The White House had to know that it was only a matter of time before the truth would come out. But time was what mattered, with an election close at hand. The longer they could stretch out the period of distraction and uncertainty — “cooling out” the voters — the better. Once the confidence man in the White House was reelected, it would be politically irrelevant what facts came out. As the Obama administration’s video story began to slowly unravel, their earlier misstatements were blamed on “the fog of war” that initially obscures many events. But there was no

such “fog of war” in this case. The Obama administration knew what was happening while it was happening. They didn’t know all the details — and we may never know all the details — but they knew enough to know that this was no protest demonstration that got out of hand. From the time it took office, the Obama administration has sought to suppress the very concept of a “war on terror” or the terrorists’ war on us. The painful farce of calling the Fort Hood murders “workplace violence,” instead of a terrorist attack in our midst, shows how far the Obama administration would go to downplay the dangers of Islamic extremist terrorism. The killing of Osama bin Laden fed the pretense that the terrorism threat had been beaten. But the terrorists’ attack in Libya exposed that fraud — and required another fraud to try to “cool out” the voters until after election day. — Thomas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

TODAY IN HISTORY

Today is Tuesday, Oct. 30, the 304th day of 2012. There are 62 days left in the year. Today’s highlight in history: On Oct. 30, 1912, Vice President James S. Sherman, running for a second term of office with President William Howard Taft, died six days before Election Day. (Sherman was replaced with Nicholas Murray Butler, but Taft, the Republican candidate, ended up losing in an Electoral College landslide to Democrat Woodrow Wilson.) On this date: In 1735, the second president of the United States, John Adams, was born in Braintree, Mass. In 1893, the U.S. Senate gave final congressional approval to repealing the Sherman Silver Purchase Act of 1890. In 1921, the silent film classic “The Sheik,” starring Rudolph Valentino, premiered in Los Angeles. In 1938, the radio play “The War of the Worlds,” starring Orson Welles, aired on CBS. In 1944, the Martha Graham ballet “Appalachian Spring,” with music by Aaron Copland, premiered at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., with Graham in a leading role. In 1945, the U.S. government announced the end of shoe rationing, effective at midnight. In 1953, Gen. George C. Marshall was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Dr. Albert Schweitzer received the Peace Prize for 1952. In 1961, the Soviet Union tested a hydrogen bomb, the “Tsar Bomba,” with a force estimated at about 50 megatons. The Soviet Party Congress unanimously approved a resolution ordering the removal of Josef Stalin’s body from Lenin’s tomb. In 1974, Muhammad Ali knocked out George Foreman in the eighth round of a 15round bout in Kinshasa, Zaire , known as the “Rumble in the Jungle,” to regain his world heavyweight title. In 1985, schoolteacher-astronaut Christa McAuliffe witnessed the launch of the space shuttle Challenger, the same craft that carried her and six other crew members to their deaths in January 1986. In 1997, a jury in Cambridge, Mass., convicted British au pair Louise Woodward of second-degree murder in the death of eightmonth-old Matthew Eappen. (The judge, Hiller B. Zobel, later reduced the verdict to manslaughter and set Woodward free.) Five years ago: Democrats Barack Obama and John Edwards sharply challenged Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s candor, consistency and judgment in a televised debate in Philadelphia. Today’s birthdays: Actor Dick Gautier is 75. Movie director Claude Lelouch is 75. Actor Ed Lauter is 74. Rock singer Grace Slick is 73. Songwriter Eddie Holland is 73. Rhythm-and-blues singer Otis Williams (The Temptations) is 71. Actor Henry Winkler is 67.

The vanishing act of Dubya

WASHINGTON — One of the most telling aspects of the 2012 presidential campaign now racing to its end is the matter of the vanishing former two-term Republican president. His name is so seldom mentioned by his party’s nominee and other stalwarts as to take on the characteristic of a toxic distant uncle. That other GOP two-termer, Ronald Reagan, continues posthumously to enjoy the stature of political sainthood among the faithful. But the 43rd president, who is the son and namesake of the 41st, has been neither seen nor heard from in the blizzard of speech-making and television advertising by and in behalf of party standard-bearer Mitt Romney. Yes, the missing person in the picture would be George W. Bush, now seemingly under party house arrest back in Texas as Romney runs as far away as he can get from Bush and his White House tenure. Memories of the junior Bush economic hangover haunt not only President Obama, still struggling to recover from it, but also the Republican who wants Bush’s old job. At a time when his rival Obama plans a closing campaign swing with former twoterm President Bill Clinton, Romney keeps Dubya on the sidelines and out of mind. He’s obviously fearful voters will be reminded of what the previous Republican president wrought domestically and abroad in his eight-year reign. In the second presidential debate, when Romney was asked by an undecided voter how he differed from the junior President Bush, he pleaded that they were “different people and these are different times.” He said he would “crack down on China” and

On Minn. gay marriage vote, seniors a tough crowd

BY PATRICK CONDON ASSOCIATED PRESS

SHOREVIEW, Minn. — The word “homosexual” was rarely uttered in public when Louise Pardee was growing up, but now the 81-year-old is dialing up fellow Minnesota senior citizens trying to convince them gay relationships are nothing to fear. “Often I find myself saying, ‘I know this isn’t an easy thing to talk about,’” Pardee said, between calls at a phone bank in suburban St. Paul set up to fight a proposed constitutional ban on gay marriage. Minnesota is one of four states with gay marriage on the November ballot, and gay rights supporters hope this is the year they finally get a win after defeats in 32 previous state votes on the definition of marriage. They are encouraged by national polls showing increasing acceptance of same-sex marriage by younger generations. But the outcome may depend on winning over some senior citizens, who vote in high numbers and have been a key factor in the decisions in the other states, including socially liberal ones like California. “We’ve always been able to count on people over 65 voting our way in higher numbers than any other age group,” said Frank Schubert, the political strategist leading the campaigns against gay marriage in Minnesota, Maine, Maryland and Washington state. He expects the same this year. Recent polls have showed a tight race on Minnesota’s gay marriage question. Reaching seniors is a priority for campaigns on both sides of the issue, as they employ elaborate voter outreach operations to both motivate their natural supporters and reach demographic groups that might be persuadable. In Minnesota, people older than 65 represent 13 percent of the population, about average compared with other states, and reliably post the best voter turnout percentages of any age group. Gay rights organizations have recruited dozens of senior volunteers and given them lists of names culled from voter registration lists. The callers are trained, including by going through role-playing exercises to help them talk to older voters about a concept that was largely unthinkable for most of their lives.

Joe Norquist, a retired doctor, calls fellow senior citizens from a Shoreview, Minn, phone bank to urge them to vote against a proposed constitutional ban on gay marriage on Minnesota's statewide ballot next month. The phone bank was sponsored by Minnesotans United for All Families, the campaign trying to defeat the amendment.

The conversations can be awkward, says Pardee, but not impossible. “People think it sounds hard to convince seniors on this subject, because we grew up with the taboos. But we’re a group that’s more open to arguments about fairness and justice,” said Pardee, a widow and grandmother who once worked in public relations. Elderly voters cite religious concerns most often. The volunteers’ script suggests this response: “I’m a person of faith. One of the values important to me is to treat people the way I would want to be treated. This amendment is hurtful to so many people, which is why I’m voting

no. What do you think about that?” These volunteers are also encouraged to improvise. They bring up their children and grandchildren, gay people they’ve known, how their own faith informs their support for gay couples. Minnesotans United for All Families, the lead group fighting the amendment, has also mounted phone banks microtargeting other demographic slices: blacks calling blacks, Hispanics calling Hispanics and so forth. Campaign spokeswoman Kate Brickman said the group has reached at least 500,000 people through phone banks and other outreach efforts.

Sandy disrupts presidential campaign 8 days out

Page A6 — Tuesday, October 30, 2012

President Barack Obama pauses in the White House Briefing Room in Washington, on Monday, where he spoke after returning to the White House from a campaign stop in Florida to monitor Hurricane Sandy.

BY JULIE PACE

ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Hurricane Sandy overran White House politicking Monday, with President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney calling off campaign rallies as the strengthening storm bore down on the East Coast. With eight days to go

before Election Day, Nov. 6, neither candidate could afford to totally shut down operations. The political barbs continued in campaign ads and between aides trying to show the upper hand in a race as tight as ever. Obama, trying to show effective leadership in a time of impending crisis across some of the country’s biggest

population centers, met with federal officials monitoring the storm from a video hookup and then addressed the country from the White House. He repeated that his administration is ready to help respond to and warned that the consequences could be deadly if people don’t follow instructions. “The great thing about America is that when we go through tough times like this, we all pull together,” Obama said in a six-minute appearance. The president turned aside a shouted question about the storm’s impact on the campaign, saying safety was his top priority. “The election will take care of itself next week,” he said, pivoting back to the microphone to answer after having turned to leave. “Right now, our number one priority is to make sure we are saving lives, that our search and rescue teams are going to be in place, that people are going to get the food, the water, the shelter they need in case of emergency and that we respond as quickly as possible to get the economy back on

track.” Romney didn’t have official duties to allow him to play a commanding role, and his Boston-based campaign staff debated whether to keep him on the trail away from the storm’s path. But they were mindful of the optics of politicking while millions of people faced grave hardships and canceled events Romney and running mate Paul Ryan had scheduled for Monday night and Tuesday. “Sandy is another devastating hurricane by all accounts, and a lot of people are going to be facing some real tough times as a result of Sandy’s fury,” Romney said at a stop in Ohio. He also planned to stop in swing state Iowa before standing down as the storm was predicted to make landfall Monday night. Romney’s campaign considered a plan to send him to New Jersey later this week, where he could meet with victims and gauge damage with political ally Gov. Chris Christie. The move would follow the path Romney took after Hurricane Irene following the Republican National

Convention, when he toured storm damage in Louisiana with Gov. Bobby Jindal, also a supporter. Romney urged the Ohio crowd to make a contribution to the Red Cross or other relief agency “in any way you can imagine to help those in harm’s way.” Then he turned to politics. “I know the people of the Atlantic Coast are counting on Ohio and the rest of our states,” Romney said. “But also I think the people of the entire nation are counting on Ohio because my guess is that if Ohio votes me in as president, I’ll be the next president of the United States.” Romney’s Ohio director, Scott Jennings, issued a public memo arguing that the candidate was surging there. “The daydream Chicago was having a few weeks ago about Ohio coming off the board has been replaced by their nightmare of Romney momentum fueled by our ticket’s performance, our goal-shattering ground game and an unmistakable feeling among independent voters that Barack Obama has no plan for the next four years,” Jennings wrote. Obama’s plans to campaign Wednesday in Ohio were still on, though campaign officials said they were evaluating travel plans on an almost hourly basis. The president rushed out of battleground Florida on Monday morning before a planned rally that went on with former President Bill Clinton as his stand-in. Obama also called off Tuesday’s trip to Wisconsin. Four critical election states are affected by the storm — North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio and New Hampshire. Polls suggest Obama has an advantage in reaching the required 270 Electoral College votes. But Romney’s campaign is projecting momentum and considering trying to expand the playing field beyond the nine states that have garnered the bulk of the candidates’ attention. Republicans concede that the storm essentially pushes a pause button on his efforts. They insist they are in strong positions in battlegrounds like Ohio, Florida, Colorado and Iowa, but acknowledge that Virginia could be a problem. Romney was forced to cancel three rallies planned for the state on Sunday and it’s unclear when he’ll be able to

return. Obama advisers said they said they were confident in their ground game even if Obama has to curtail his campaigning. “We’re obviously going to lose a bunch of campaign time,” senior campaign adviser David Axelrod told reporters in a conference call. “We’ll try to make it up on the back end.” Obama campaign manager Jim Messina told reporters on the same call that they would start running ads in Pennsylvania to counter a pro-Romney effort in the state. Restore Our Future, a super PAC founded by former Romney aides, planned to spend $2.1 million on television ads criticizing Obama’s economic record to put the state in play. But Messina insisted the state is safely in the president’s column. “The Romney campaign wants you to think they are expanding the map, but it’s not,” Messina said. Clinton appeared before voters in Orlando, Fla., in Obama’s absence and did not shy away from hot-button campaign issues, including the economy, education and energy policy, in making a case for the president’s reelection. Later Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden were appearing together in Youngstown, Ohio. Then Clinton planned a tireless swing to help fill Obama’s void this week in Minnesota, Iowa, Colorado, Ohio, Virginia, New Hampshire and Wisconsin. Both campaigns used social media to urge supporters to donate to the Red Cross and said they would stop sending fundraising emails on Monday to people living in areas in the storm zone. Romney staffers in North Carolina, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Virginia were collecting storm-relief supplies at campaign offices to be delivered via one of Romney’s campaign buses. In an email, Romney encouraged supporters in the storm’s path to help neighbors get ready. “For safety’s sake, as you and your family prepare for the storm, please be sure to bring any yard signs inside,” the email read. “In high winds they can be dangerous, and cause damage to homes and property.”

Romney scraps campaigning in light of superstorm BY STEVE PEOPLES ASSOCIATED PRESS

AVON LAKE, Ohio — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney curtailed his campaigning Monday as Hurricane Sandy churned closer to the Eastern Seaboard and urged supporters to donate to the Red Cross or other relief agencies gearing up to help millions expected to become victims of the powerful storm. “Do your very best to help,” he urged them. Romney will go ahead with a scheduled rally Monday afternoon in Iowa, but has canceled an evening event in Wisconsin. He also will not campaign in Ohio and Iowa on Tuesday as planned. His campaign has mobilized campaign staff across Virginia, which was being lashed by the storm, to collect donations for victims and he called on others in the storm’s path to remove yard signs that could become projectiles in windy conditions. Romney did not ignore politics completely while addressing more than 2,000 supporters in the gymnasium of an Ohio high school on Monday afternoon. “I know the people of the Atlantic Coast are counting on Ohio and the rest of our states,” he said. “But also I think the people of the entire nation are counting on Ohio because my guess is that if Ohio votes me in as president I’ll be the next president of the United States.” The storm has created major headaches for both presidential candidates. Aides at Romney’s campaign headquarters in Boston were sketching out political contingency plans should the

storm worsen. The former Massachusetts governor and Obama are locked in a close race eight days before Election Day, Nov. 6. Campaign officials say Republican vice presidential running mate Paul Ryan will also scrap some campaign rallies. The decision to suspend the events was announced shortly after President Barack Obama canceled his appearance at a morning rally in Florida to fly back to Washington to oversee the government’s response to the hurricane from the White House. Obama also canceled campaign events scheduled for Tuesday. Besides suspending rallies, Romney’s campaign also was considering sending him to New Jersey later in the week, where he could meet with victims and survey storm damage with Republican Gov. Chris Christie, a top Romney ally. The move would mimic Romney’s actions after the Republican National Convention in Tampa., Fla., in late August, which was cut short because of Hurricane Irene. He toured storm damage in Louisiana with Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal, another top supporter. Republicans concede that the storm essentially pushes a pause button on the momentum Romney had been building in key states. But aides insist he is in a strong position in critical battlegrounds like Ohio, Florida, Colorado and Iowa, but acknowledge Virginia could be a problem. Romney was forced to cancel three rallies planned for Virginia on Sunday. It was unclear whether he’ll be able to return before the election.

Hey, parents. The scariest day of the year is right around the

corner. Have your kids got their costumes yet? If not, then you’ll definitely want to take this checklist with you when you go shopping to ensure your kids’ costumes are safe. The safest Halloween costumes consist of: Non-toxic, hypoallergenic makeup in lieu of heavy, cumbersome masks. Properly fitting flame-retardant, colorfast, reflective garments. Flame-retardant accessories. Soft, flexible props. Sturdy, comfortable, double-tied shoes. In addition to purchasing a safe costume for your kids, you may also want to go over some safety rules with them before they go trick-or-treating. If your kids are young, you may even want to provide adult supervision on their outing.

Tomblin declares state of emergency

BY JOHN RABY

ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHARLESTON — Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin declared a state of emergency in West Virginia on Monday ahead of a storm packing high winds and heavy rain and threatening to bring flooding and dump as much as 3 feet of snow on the state’s highest ridge tops. Forecasters expanded a blizzard warning Monday to at least 14 counties. High wind warnings and flood watches also were posted, mostly in northern and eastern sections of the state. Eastern parts of the state can expect to get up to 6 inches of rain. Forecasters upgraded an earlier prediction that had said up to 2 feet of snow was possible on ridge

Gene Tracy. “We’re preparing for the worst — power outages — and getting ready to cut trees if they block the roads.” Tomblin on Monday opened a special communications center at the state Capitol. He advised residents to be ready for power outages and to stay off roads once high winds hit. “We’re looking at a three-punch

storm,” Tomblin said. “People looking out their windows may just see some clouds and a little drizzle. I’m asking them to make sure they have enough water, batteries, food, whatever they think they need for the next two days.” No significant outages were reported Monday. Tracy said Pocahontas County officials are spreading the word that “we ought to keep our heads up and be ready to open shelters.” Highway crews embarked on what could be a long week of snow removal, working along U.S. 219

Region shuttered as Sandy begins its pass BY JESSICA GRESKO ASSOCIATED PRESS

OCEAN CITY, Md. — Government offices, schools, courthouses and transit systems shut down in the mid-Atlantic region Monday as Hurricane Sandy off the coast kicked up a threatening combination of pounding rain, wind and tidal surges. Officials implored residents to stay off the roads while imposing evacuation orders that affected thousands of residents in low-lying coastal communities, primarily in Delaware. In Washington, the federal and local governments closed along with the courts, public schools and the Metro system that serves about 1.2 million weekday customers. Most of Monday’s scheduled flights in and out of the region’s three major airports were canceled. Tourist attractions like the Smithsonian museums were off-limits, and shelters opened to feed and house hundreds. With Sandy bringing top sustained winds of 85 mph and hurtling on a predicted path toward Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York, utilities warned power outages could affect millions and last for a week. Thousands of people in the region had lost power by early Monday afternoon, including more than 5,000 Baltimore Gas & Electric customers.

No part of the region appeared safe from Sandy’s impact. Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley said his state was “right in the crosshairs” of the storm and urged people to stay off the road for the next 36 hours. “The days ahead are going to be very difficult,” O’Malley said. “There will be people who die and are killed in this storm.” In mountainous western Maryland, a blizzard warning was issued for sections of Garrett County for Monday night into Tuesday morning. O’Malley said the forecast for Mary-

land worsened Monday morning, and he predicted Chesapeake Bay flooding would be reminiscent of the worst hurricanes in the state’s history: Gloria in 1985 and Agnes in 1972. The stormy Atlantic Ocean covered the beach in Ocean City, where an ocean pier was significantly damaged. Tracy Lind, a front desk worker at a Holiday Inn & Suites, said the damaged pier was part of the fabric of the resort town, frequented by fishermen and visited by tourists and locals seeking a close-up look at the ocean.

Sales at department stores, clothing chains, jewelers and other sellers of non-essential goods are expected to suffer the most.

See ECONOMY B2

NEW YORK (AP) — Hurricane Sandy grounded thousands of flights in the U.S. northeast Monday and upended travel plans across the globe, stranding passengers from Hong Kong to Europe. The massive storm threatens to bring a near halt to air travel for at least two days in a key region for both domestic and international flights. Major carriers such as American Airlines, United and Delta cancelled all flights into and out of three area airports in New York, the nation’s busiest airspace. According to the flight-tracking service FlightAware, nearly 10,000 flights had been canceled for Monday and Tuesday, almost all related to the storm. The cancellations have already surpassed those from last year’s damaging Hurricane Irene. They’re now on par with a major winter storm in early 2011. Back then, 14,000 flights were scrapped over four days. Delays rippled across the U.S., affecting travelers in cities such as San Francisco to Chicago. Disruptions spread to Europe and Asia, where airlines canceled or delayed flights to New York and Washington from cities that are major travel hubs including London, Paris, Tokyo and Hong Kong. About one-quarter of all U.S. flights travel in or out of New York airports each day. So cancellations here can dramatically impact travel in other cities. Businessman Alan Shrem was trying to return home to Boca Raton, Fla. His Monday morning Cathay Pacific flight from Hong Kong to New York’s Kennedy airport was canceled. He learned he could be stuck in Hong Kong for nearly a week because the next available seat was Nov. 4. He was put on a waiting list for seats that could become available earlier. “They just say: Yeah, it’s a pretty big waiting list,” said Shrem, throwing up his hands. In the meantime, he’ll have to fork out $400 a night to continue staying at a nearby hotel. The airline won’t pay for accommodation for stranded passengers if delays are weather related. By early afternoon, the storm had strengthened to 90 mph and had already knocked out power to tens of thousands of people. Sandy was 110 miles southeast of Atlantic City, N.J., and had turned toward the west, as forecasters feared. Sandy is on track to collide with a wintry storm moving in from the west and cold air streaming down from the Arctic. Airports in the metropolitan New York City area are open, but air carriers are not operating. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said Monday that travelers shouldn’t even try to go to Kennedy, Newark Liberty, LaGuardia and Stewart airports. Angela Gittens, director general of the Airports Council International who was the aviation director at Miami International Airport Dade during several hurricanes from 2001 to 2004, said even if storm damage is minor it could be a week before operations are normal at major East Coast airports. “The storm has such a wide swath and so many major airports are involved that it’s going to take some time (to recover) because those airplanes are so far away,” Gittens said. JetBlue Airways Corp. expects its cancellations from Sunday through Tuesday to total about 1,200. The airline has hubs at Kennedy airport and Boston’s Logan. Rob Maruster, the company’s chief operating officer, hopes flights can resume in New York on Wednesday morning. But he’s worried about flooding of JFK’s runways since they are all basically at sea level and near bodies of water. Delta Air Lines Inc. has canceled 2,100 flights over the three days. American Airlines has scrapped 1,000 flights, including 260 on regional affiliate American Eagle. It’s still too early to assess the impact on airline’s bottom lines. Many of the customers on flights currently being cancelled will reschedule later on, so the airline will still collect the fare. But the cost of parking planes for days, along with potential damage, will undoubtedly cost airlines millions. International travelers could wait days to get to the East Coast of the U.S. All flights from Paris to Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington — a total of 14 — were canceled. Frankfurt airport canceled 12 flights, with German carrier Lufthansa scrapping three to the Northeast and one out of Newark. British Airways had to cancel all its flights to and from New York, Newark, Baltimore, Washington DC, Boston and Philadelphia — a total of 20. Eight flights out of Tokyo’s Narita International Airport to New York, Newark and Washington were canceled Monday.

In Preston County, one of 14 counties under a blizzard warning, rain and fog hugged Caddell Mountain at midday. People at the Shop N Save supermarket in Terra Alta picked up bread, milk and cat food, but all laughed off the dire predictions they saw on a cable television channel where forecasters didn’t differentiate in elevations. Snowshoe’s highest peak in Pocahontas County is more than 4,800 feet, while Terra Alta sits at an elevation of about 2,500 feet. Morgantown, about 40 miles northwest of Terra Alta, sits below 1,000 feet. “I never have been worried. ... The only guy that can keep a job is the weather man,” said Homer Bennett, who has lived in Terra Alta a little less than three years. “He can tell a lie, get paid and still have a job.” Judy Sines, who was restocking shelves as a few last-minute shoppers trickled in and out, has lived on the mountaintop for more than 30 years. She said big snows are nothing new to the area. “All we can do is get prepared and hope for the best,” she said. “People around here

... you know what it’s like and you know how to get through it. You do the best you can do, and it is what it is.” There was a big snowstorm a few days before Halloween last year, but Deane Foy is so used to storms, she can’t even remember how much fell. “I heard Saturday night we were getting 5 feet and I just laughed,” Foy said. “We have gotten 5 feet before. But they’re saying this is the blizzard of all blizzards, we’ve never seen a blizzard like this before. “I don’t think so,” she said. “It could be, maybe. And it could pass.” Doug Rumer threw two loaves of bread in a cart before heading the 10 miles home to Aurora. That was about the extent of his preparations. “I’ve got a generator. Most people up here do,” he said. “It’s no worries. We’re used to it. ... We just sit at home and play cards.” The most recorded snowfall from a single storm in West Virginia was 57 inches in Pickens in post-Thanksgiving 1950, the weather service said.

“It’s kind of like an icon in Ocean City. It’s the closest people can get to the ocean without getting in,” Lind said. “I always thought that it would withstand anything.” Mayor Rick Meehan said about 100 to 150 feet of the eastern part of the fishing pier was damaged. He also said there was significant flooding in a downtown area where officials had ordered a mandatory evacuation. About 200 people were staying in the evacuated area, police said. While no injuries have been reported, the flooding is the worst the town has seen since Gloria, Ocean City Emergency Services Director Joe Theobald said. “The sun will shine in Ocean City again,” Theobald said. In Delaware, Gov. Jack Markell ordered the evacuation of about 50,000 people in coastal communities while Wilmington, the state’s largest city, evacuated a low-lying area that is home to about 3,000 residents. About 700 people were

— Power outages and disruptions in major East Coast cities “may take a toll on demand unlike anything we have seen before,” Phil Flynn, a senior market analyst for Price Futures Group, wrote in a report. Some of the biggest oil refineries in the Northeast were closed, and others were running at reduced capacity. As businesses closed and drivers staying home, demand for gasoline was expected to fall. — The cost to insurers is expected to rival the insured damage from Hurricane Irene last year. Damage from Irene cost insurers roughly $5 billion, according to Sterne, Agee & Leach Research. Because the storm is hitting a highly populous region, with “one of the highest concentrations of wealth in the world,” the damages are likely to run into the billions, say analysts at Morgan Stanley. Hurricanes, like other disasters, can cause big losses but also big spikes in economic activity, once homes and buildings are rebuilt or repaired. And Americans may spend more before the storm when they stock up on extra food, water and batteries. Spending can also rise afterward as households restock. The overall economy expanded at an annual rate of 2 percent in the JulySeptember quarter. Zandi said he isn’t changing his forecast for similar growth in the current October-Decem-

ber quarter of 1.9 percent. Economic activity in October and November might slow if factory output declines and some workers are laid off temporarily and seek unemployment benefits. But the economy could strengthen in December as companies rebound. CoreLogic, a private data provider, estimates that there are 284,000 homes worth about $88 billion in the hurricane’s path. The airline cancellations have already surpassed those from Hurricane Irene last August and are on par with those from a major snowstorm that socked the East Coast early last year. The Airports International Council, a trade group for airports worldwide, said that even if storm damage is minor, it could be a week before operations are normal at major East Coast airports. The retail industry is entering the holiday shopping season, when many companies record up to 40 percent of their annual revenue. The retail indus-

Even home improvement chains and grocers that will benefit from shoppers stocking up on emergency supplies before the hurricane and cleaning and repair items afterward could lose sales in the long run if overstretched consumers feel they must scale back. “If you’re spending $400 on a generator, that could hurt discretionary purchases,” said Brian Sozzi, chief equities analyst at NBG Productions. Flickinger now estimates that holiday sales in November and December will rise 2.1 percent over last year instead of the 3.2 percent he had originally predicted. A better idea of how Hurricane Sandy is affecting the retail business will come Thursday, when some major retailers like Target Corp. and Macy’s will report sales figures for October.

DR. PAUL DONOHUE Your Good Healt h

Cause will determine treatment

New Khaled Hosseini novel out May 21

NEW YORK — Khaled Hosseini’s next novel will be a journey across time and space. The author of the millionsellers “The Kite Runner” and “A Thousand Splendid Suns” has finished his third book, “And the Mountains Echoed.” Riverhead Books, an imprint of Penguin Group (USA), announced Monday that the new book comes out May 21. Hosseini says in a statement that “And the Mountains Echoed” will be a story of family and love, betrayal and honor.

DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND ROACH: I am 70 years old and working as I did when I was 25. I am having trouble finding the answer to erectile dysfunction. Is there a way other than the pill to restore virility? I have tried them. — J.J. ANSWER: By “the pill,” I take it you mean Viagra, Cialis or Levitra. They have a good record for restoring potency. However, you have to take them by strictly observing the instructions that come with them. Viagra, for example, works best when taken on an empty stomach — no food for four hours. If you weren’t taking it like that, try again. Secondly, all three of these drugs have three dosages. If the lowest dose doesn’t work, a higher one might. Before taking any ED (erectile dysfunction) medicine blindly, you, along with your doctor, have to make a search for the cause of the problem. Clogging of arteries that deliver blood for an erection could be the cause. Such obstruction indicates that other arteries suffer the same condition. For your general health, you need to know if the process is occurring in other blood vessels, like the ones to the heart. Diabetes and high blood pressure are two other factors involved in ED. Have you been tested for them? Depression also leads to ED. Has your level of testosterone been checked? The male hormone is very important in maintaining sexual function. You might need a boost to the amount of testosterone you’re producing. You are 70 years old, and with age, testosterone production decreases. Devices that don’t involve taking medicines are an approach that should be considered. A vacuum pump draws blood into the penis, and a constriction ring around the base of that organ keeps blood there. Another device is an implant that pumps saline into the penis. You activate the pump by squeezing it. It’s implanted in the scrotum. Alprostadil is a medicine inserted painlessly into the penis with an applicator. The name of this device is MUSE. A talk with a urologist can give you detailed information on finding the cause and determining the best treatment for it. DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND ROACH: Please tell me why I should not drink cranberry juice cocktail. I’ve been drinking it for a long time. — M.M. DEAR DRS. DONOHUE AND ROACH: You once indicated that cranberry juice was a way to prevent bladder infections. Now you say not to drink cranberry juice cocktail. Why? — D.R. ANSWER: My advice was targeted only to those who use cranberry juice to break the cycle of bladder infections. The juice often works. Cranberry juice cocktail contains other juices in it. That dilutes the juice’s prevention properties. If you like the cocktail juice, drink it. It’s not, however, indicated for prevention of bladder infections.

Green Day cancels dates, postpones ‘13

NEW YORK — Green Day is canceling the rest of its 2012 club schedule and is postponing the start of the 2013 arena tour. Bass player Mike Dirnt says Billie Joe Armstrong’s “well-being is our main concern” in the band’s decision to clear the schedule through Feb 8. He says in a statement Monday that Armstrong is doing well in his attempt to shake substance abuse problems that emerged publicly in September when the singerguitarist had a profane meltdown on the stage of the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. The Grammy-winning punks also moved up the release date of “Tre,” the third installment in a trilogy of albums released over a period of months. The album will be released Dec. 11, more than a month ahead of schedule.

‘Skyfall’ opens with sky-high box office

LONDON — James Bond rules the box office — though he has failed to dethrone Harry Potter. Producers say the new Bond adventure, “Skyfall,” has had the second-biggest opening weekend in British movie history, taking 20.1 million pounds ($32 million) at the U.K. box office. That is the biggest opening weekend for any of the 23 Bond films, and ranks just behind last year’s final Potter movie, “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows — Part 2,” which took 23 million pounds in its first weekend in Britain. “Skyfall” opened this weekend in 25 global markets, taking in a total of $77.7 million between Friday and Sunday. The film, which stars Daniel Craig as agent 007 and Javier Bardem as a villain bent on revenge, opens in the United States on Nov. 9.

I want to do it for fun, but I don’t want any strange spirits or dark energies to attach themselves to me or anyone in the room. I’ve never done it before and don’t expect that anything will really happen, but I think it might be interesting. What do you think?” A seance is an invitation to unseen forces, including ghosts and others kinds of spirits, to communicate with a person or group of people. While many psychics and mediums conduct such activities, I’m not a fan. Maybe it’s the way I was raised, or maybe I’m just easily spooked. Either way, I’m a private person, and I would-

n’t open my house to just anyone who wanted to come in and visit — including spirits I don’t know. If you’re not discouraged, I suggest enlisting the help of a very experienced medium to conduct the ceremony. It couldn’t hurt to issue a mental guest list to the ether, letting the spirits know who exactly will be welcome. And since this is “for fun,” be sure to add a few great entertainers to the list like Elvis and Michael Jackson. CELEBRITY PROFILES: Matthew Morrison is a triple-threat Broadway entertainer who draws on all of his considerable talents to create the loveable teacher Will Schuester of the television series “Glee.” Morrison was born when the sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Uranus were all in the soulful realm of Scorpio, suggesting heightened powers of intuition. His natal Jupiter, the planet of luck, is in Leo. — If you would like to write to Holiday Mathis, please go to www.creators.com and click on “Write the Author” on the Holiday Mathis page, or you may send her a postcard in the mail.

Ukraine’s ruling party leads in biased election

Syrian warplanes bombard rebels with 60 airstrikes

More than 500 killed dead in days leading up to truce BY BASSEM MROUE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEIRUT — Syrian warplanes launched 60 airstrikes against rebel targets around the country on Monday, the most intense air raids across the country since the uprising began 19 months ago, according to antiregime activists. The suburbs of the capital Damascus were particularly hard hit. Activists said at least 500 people were killed over the four-day period ending Monday when a U.N.-backed truce was supposed to be in effect. They said the death toll for Monday so far has reached 80 and would likely rise further. In the period leading up to the truce, there was an average of about 150 deaths per day in the civil war, according to activists. A government official said a car bomb killed 10 people on the outskirts of Damascus and TV footage showed firemen fighting the blaze amid wide destruction after parts of balconies fell on cars parked on a residential

were many casualties. Monday was supposed to be the fourth and final day of a U.N.-backed cease-fire to coincide with the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, one of the holiest periods on the Muslim calendar. But the truce was violated almost as soon as it was supposed to take effect on Friday and violence continued unabated over the holiday weekend.

KIEV, Ukraine — The Ukrainian president’s party will retain its strong grip on power, according to returns Monday from a parliamentary election that was criticized by Western observers as unfair and biased against the opposition. The West was paying close attention to Sunday’s vote in the strategic ex-Soviet state of 46 million people, which lies between Russia and the European Union and serves as a key transit nation for Russian energy supplies to many EU countries. Observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe called the vote a setback to Ukraine’s democratic and European aspirations. That assessment could lead to a further freeze in Kiev’s ties with the West and push it closer to Russia. Monitors said the election was marred by the absence of jailed former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko and another opposition leader, the ruling party’s use of government funding for the campaign and the skewed media coverage that favored the ruling party. While the voting process got positive ratings at most polling stations observed, the vote tallying lacked transparency, the group said. “Considering the abuse of power and the excessive role of money in this election, democratic progress appears to have reversed in Ukraine,” said Walburga Habsburg Douglas, the special coordinator who led the OSCE election observation mission. “We do not think that this election was fair because it was not level.” “Ukrainians deserved better from these elections,” said Andreas Gross, the Head of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe delegation. “Unfortunately, the great democratic potential of Ukrainian society was not realized in yesterday’s vote.” President Viktor Yanukovych’s Russia-friendly Party of Regions was leading in the count with 34 percent of the vote. Tymoshenko’s pro-Western party was second with 23 percent, trailed by the Communists, Yanukovych’s traditional allies, with 15 percent. Another liberal party, Udar (Punch), led by world boxing champion Vitali Klitschko had 13 percent and the far-right Svoboda (Freedom) party had 9 percent. Yanukovych’s party benefited

strongly from an electoral change last year that replaced the strictly proportional electoral system with a mixed one, in which half of parliament’s seats are elected based on party lists and the other half in individual races. Despite a combined strong showing of opposition parties, Yanukovych’s party was poised to retain its parliamentary majority as its candidates were expected to take the lead in individual races, benefitting from greater access to government funds and the opposition’s fielding of multiple candidates. Tymoshenko’s party alleged widespread violations such as vote-buying and multiple voting. Tymoshenko, who was sentenced last year to seven years in prison for abuse of office in a trial condemned by the West as politically motivated, launched a hunger strike to protest the vote violations.

Weather halts Fall Brawl

“Among famous traitors of history one might mention the weather.” —Ilka Chase

Once again the weather gods have conspired against Hagerstown Speedway on their year-ending Brawl In The Fall. A year ago, we had snow and this year, the side edge of a hurricane. They were able to complete qualifying Saturday, but they had to hold off the features Sunday. They are now scheduled for Nov. 11. Gates open at 9:30 a.m., and racing begins at noon. There is a nice who’s who in the field of qualifiers. In the Big Block Modifieds are the top runners such as Matt Sheppard, Brett Hearn and Tim McCreadie, who have dominated this class for some time. But back a little bit in the field are dark horses Larry Wright and Dom Buffalino, which means this race won’t be over until the last lap. In the 410 Sprint field are some of the newer drivers and a good class of veterans. Blaine Heimbach may have grabbed the pole, but he’ll have a mirror full of Cody Darrah, Daryn Pittman and Chad Layton. Hagerstown is a great track for the 410s, with the distance and banking in the turns. This is one of the best tracks to watch the 410s battle. The Super Late Model field will have an uphill battle. As the dust settled, the last thing any of the drivers wanted was Gary Stuhler on the pole. It’s a tough, experienced field behind him, with the likes of Kenny Moreland, Jason Covert and Greg Satterlee. You know it’s a powerhouse stack of cars when Glenn Elliot is the first alternate. Finally, new this year will be the 358 Sprints with Mike Bittenger on the pole, but that might not be the car to watch. Keep your eyes on the 11th starter, the No. 3 of Pat Cannon. He has been the class of the field in 358s this year winning all over central Pennsylvania. There are a lot of cars in this race, but if Cannon has the set up, watch out. For Richard Petty fans, Sunday’s race at Martinsville was another example of the progress they have been quietly making over the past two years since the near meltdown of Richard Petty Motorsports. Aric Almirola came in fourth. They are looking to resign both Almirola and Marcus Ambrose for 2013. It all means that Daytona, and the new season, cannot get here fast enough to see what they’ll do. A couple of other NASCAR notes on the year. Over at Stewart-Haas Racing, Darian Grubb wasn’t the man for the pit box for Smoke. Never mind that they won the championship. Maybe it was a personality thing, but now Stewart is 10th in points in the Chase, even with three wins on the season. Meanwhile, Kyle Busch, NASCAR’s Bad Boy, has had a disconsolate year with no wins in Sprint Cup, bad luck when he’s been doing good and missing the Chase. Meanwhile, brother Kurt very nearly ended up with possibly no better than begging around for a “start-andpark” ride after cranking off his NASCAR guardian angel, James Finch at Phoenix Racing.

Heat ready for rings, Celtics

Defending champs host Boston in NBA season opener today

MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James is finally getting his championship ring. Somehow, that seems like an ancillary element to opening night in Miami. It’s Boston vs. Miami, a rematch of last season’s Eastern Conference finals that went seven games before the Heat prevailed. It’s Ray Allen vs. the Celtics for the first time since he left after five seasons to join Boston’s biggest current rival. And, oh, it’s also the night where the Heat celebrate last season’s NBA championship with a splashy ring-and-banner ceremony. “We’ll honor and respect what we were able to accomplish before the

game,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. After that? All business — for both teams. The Heat and Celtics practiced simultaneously Monday in Miami, because Boston arrived a day ahead of schedule to avoid dealing with the brunt of Hurricane Sandy. And both preached the same mantra — yes, it’s a big game, but win or lose, both teams will still have 81 games left to go in the regular season when they wake up Wednesday morning. “If we win, do we get a trophy? We get one win and that’s it,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “And if we lose, which we don’t want to do, we get one

loss and it doesn’t mean we still can’t win it. But at the end of the day, we’re all human. ... These games, they don’t really have more meaning, but they do have more meaning.” It comes as no surprise to either side that the schedule-makers sent Boston to Miami for ring night. “Every time there’s something big going on,” Heat forward Chris Bosh said, “we’re playing the Celtics.” There has been a slew of upgrades at the arena over the summer — slightly different looks here and there, a new nightclub and restaurant, more concessions and bars for ticketholders to

enjoy. The Heat will even offer fans the chance to purchase championship-ringrelated merchandise, designed in the same manner as the players’ title-reward jewelry. The upgrades extend to what’s going to be on the court as well. Miami kept its championship rotation intact, plus added Allen and Rashard Lewis to the mix. Allen knows it will be unusual to see the Heat get their rings, especially since five months ago, he was busy trying to thwart their title march.

Members of the Wildwood Middle School volleyball team celebrate their Mountaineer Athletic Conference championship. The win capped off a perfect season for the Mustangs.

Dream Season

Wildwood volleyball team achieves perfection in 2012 BY SPENSER LEATHERMAN FOR THE JOURNAL

SHENANDOAH JUNCTION — A perfect season is every team’s dream in the beginning — no matter what sport is being played. The Wildwood Mustangs, the twotime defending Mountaineer Athletic Conference champions in volleyball, had their dream come true. The deal only got sweeter as not only did the Mustangs spikers finish undefeated in match play (23-0), but also never dropped a single set en route to their third straight conference championship, both of which are firsts in school history. First-year coach Tim Staubs never thought of a perfect season when arriving at Wildwood after four years as the Charles Town Panthers volleyball

coach. “Wildwood had two good coaches before I came along thanks to having a great connection with the athletic director,” Staubs said. “I literally thought Charles Town was going to get a win on us, because they are talented as well.” The players showed desire under Staubs by putting in the extra work that took them to new heights. “These players practiced six days a week with me, and it paid off,” Staubs said. “The other coaches normally gave them four days of practice, mostly giving them Friday and Saturday off. “Our girls bought into the system and worked hard, even on the extra days of practice because they wanted to repeat as champions.” One set away from their perfect season being complete, the Mustangs were challenged by the East Hardy Cougars,

having to rally back from seven points down to take the final set. “Our emotions really showed in the last match,” Staubs said. “The championship was near us, and we lost sight a bit, but we were able to turn it around and get the win.” After a third straight championship and a flawless season, Staubs is looking forward to repeating again and keeping things exactly the same. “I can’t wait ‘til next year,” Staubs said. “I had four seventh-graders on varsity this season, including one that started along with players on JV, that I could have easily placed on varsity this year. “These players stay after practice working on every aspect of their game, and the depth we have for the next three years could set us up for a few more titles.”

FREMONT, Calif. (AP) — Learning how to play tennis is hard enough. Now try it when you can’t see. That’s what students are doing at the California School for the Blind. They’re learning a form of tennis adapted for the visually impaired — and expanding the boundaries of what the blind can do. The state-supported campus in Fremont is one of three American schools for the blind that recently began teaching adapted tennis, which was invented in Japan in the 1980s. A nonprofit group called Tennis Serves is working to promote the sport throughout the U.S. “I didn’t know someone with no vision could play tennis until I came to this school,” said a 16-year-old student from Modesto named Jonathan. The school declined to provide his last name, citing a state law that protects the privacy of students with disabilities. Blind tennis features a smaller court, lower net and junior tennis rackets with bigger heads and shorter handles. String is taped to the floor so players can feel the boundaries with their feet. Players use a foam ball filled with metal beads that rattle on impact, allowing them to locate the ball when it hits the ground or racket. Once served, they have to return the ball before it bounces three times. “The most difficult thing to teach is timing their stroke,” said Sejal Vallabh, the 17-year-old founder of Tennis Serves. “Being able to listen to the ball, locate it using their sense of hearing and swing at the precise moment the ball goes by is really difficult to teach.”

Steelers recharged after win Pittsburgh looks sharp in easy win over Redskins

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger talks constantly about the weapons at his disposal. Mike Wallace. Antonio Brown. Heath Miller. Jerricho Cotchery. Whatever running back happens to be healthy during a given week. So of course the first touchdown pass the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback threw during Sunday’s 27-12 win over the Washington Redskins went to little-used tight end Leonard Pope. And the third went to fullback Will Johnson, a little 1-yard flip in which Johnson seemed to be surprised the ball was heading in his general direction. “I was kind of yelling, ‘turn around, you’re open,’” Roethlisberger said. Johnson’s score capped a AP photo surprisingly easy victory for Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger the Steelers (4-3), who looks to throw down field against the Washington Red- looked very much like a team skins during the first quarter of an NFL football game Sun- starting to round into form day in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh won 27-12. midway through the season.

The defense suffocated Washington’s vibrant offense while the offense continued to work with its typical efficiency. Pittsburgh held the ball for more than 33 minutes for the sixth time in seven games on a day Jonathan Dwyer became the first Steelers running back since Willie Parker in 2008 to top 100 yards in consecutive games. This is the same team that struggled to put away underachieving Philadelphia at home and lost on the road to the likes of Oakland and Tennessee? “We’re going in the right direction,” offensive tackle Max Starks said. “We stopped digging a hole for ourselves. Now we can start laying a foundation.” It’s one that starts where it always seems to start in Pittsburgh, with the defense. The Steelers endured stinging criticism after letting three sec-

ond-half leads evaporate. They defended coordinator Dick LeBeau’s 3-4 scheme and insisted the problem wasn’t the calls but the execution. After convincing victories over two explosive teams in Cincinnati and Washington, it looks like they were right. The Bengals managed just 185 yards of total offense while Washington had a season-low 255. For all the concern bubbling three weeks ago, the Steelers are second in the NFL in yards allowed as the season nears its midway point. “We still got that ‘3’ in the column there, but we’re improving,” linebacker Larry Foote said. “We know it’s a long season. It’s always long for us. We ain’t saying we’re there yet.” Not with the defending Super Bowl champions looming.

SSAC gives football player eligibility back

PARKERSBURG — The Secondary School Activities Commission has decided to let an Elkins High School football player continue competing. The SSAC declared running back James Lawrence ineligible last week and stripped Elkins of its seven wins this season. The SSAC based the ruling on a residency requirement. But the Randolph County Board of Education reviewed the facts and determined Lawrence was protected by a federal statute under which he is considered to be homeless and therefore eligible to compete. SSAC Executive Director Gary Ray says Elkins won’t be required to forfeit any games. Elkins is 7-2 this season and was eighth in the latest SSAC Class AAA computer ratings. The top 16 teams at the end of the regular season make the playoffs.

McIlroy edges Tiger in exhibition match

ZHENGZHOU, China — Rory McIlroy shot a 5under 67 to beat Tiger Woods by one stroke in a head-to-head, 18-hole exhibition match between the world’s two top-ranked golfers at the Jinsha Lake Golf Club in central China on Monday. McIlroy, the World No. 1, took an early lead with two birdies on the first three holes and held on to beat Woods, who had two bogeys to go along with his six birdies for the day. The 14time major winner finished with a 68. Both players had to make long journeys to Zhengzhou, an industrial city in China’s Henan province, after competing elsewhere on Sunday. McIlroy finished second to Peter Hanson in the European Tour’s BMW Masters at Shanghai, while Woods tied for fourth in the PGA Tour’s CIMB Classic in Malaysia. The 18-hole medal-match, dubbed “Duel at Jinsha Lake,” marked the first time the two golfers had played head-to-head without other competitors.

Zeller, McDermott top preseason selections

Indiana sophomore center Cody Zeller and Creighton junior forward Doug McDermott are the leading votegetters on The Associated Press’ preseason All-America team. Also on the team announced Monday are Ohio State junior forward Deshaun Thomas and three guards — seniors Isaiah Canaan of Murray State and C.J. McCollum of Lehigh and sophomore Trey Burke of Michigan. McCollum and Burke tied for the fifth spot with 16 votes each. Zeller was one vote shy of unanimous from the 65member national panel that selects the weekly Top 25. McDermott was named on 62 ballots, Canaaan 43 and Thomas 26. McDermott, who averaged 22.9 points and 8.2 rebounds, was a first-team All-America selection last season, while Canaan, who averaged 19.0 points and 3.6 assists, was a second-team pick.

Messi given Golden Boot Award again

BARCELONA, Spain — Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has been presented with his second Golden Boot award in recognition for scoring the most goals in Europe’s domestic leagues last season. The 25-year-old Messi scored a Spanish-league record 50 goals for Barcelona, beating fellow Spanish league star Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid by four goals. Messi dedicated the award to his teammates, saying “it is a prize for scoring goals, but without my teammates I couldn’t have scored them.” The Argentina international won his first Golden Boot in 2010 for his 34 goals that helped Barcelona win the league title.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Thousands of baseball fans took to the streets of San Francisco to celebrate the Giants’ World Series victory, with revelers gathering on corners, in parks and at watering holes — and some turning rowdy. Fans across the city left their televisions and rushed outside, greeting diners, bar patrons and other merrymakers Sunday night after the Giants defeated the Detroit Tigers 4-3 to sweep the Series for their second title in three years. Some violence and vandalism was reported, with revelers setting a public transit bus on fire, flipping over a vehicle and breaking the windows of several businesses and vehicles, KTVU-TV reported.

“I’m excited for these guys, having spent time around them over the last two, three months, getting to know them and their families,” Allen said. “I’m happy for them that they won, but at the same time, they beat me and put us out. I understand the emotions that Boston will feel, watching the whole ceremony. But at the same time I’m excited for these guys. And once it’s over with, it’s business as usual.” Boston figures to be better as well. Jason Terry now comes off the Celtics’ bench, there’s an influx of youth in the rotation, Jeff Green is back after heart surgery, and the remaining members of what was a Big Four — Rondo, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett — are loaded up for another championship push. “It’s just another basketball game,” Rondo said. Not even he probably believes that. The rivalry and the Allen reunion, make no mistake, weighs heavily on both sides. Neither Garnett nor Pierce has spoken to their former shooting guard since he signed in Miami. “We’re not going to make this into a Ray Allen or Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Rondo thing,” Pierce said. “Right now my focus is on playing in the game tomorrow vs. the Miami Heat. Everything’s that happened has already happened. He’s here. He’s happy to be here. We wish him the best for his family and the situation, but I’m more focused on the Boston Celtics.” It’s the second ring-night in Heat history.

It’s almost certain to go better than the first one after Miami’s 2006 title. Any mention of the score from that Chicago-Miami opener — 108-66 — still makes Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem cringe. They’re the last two players remaining in Miami from that Heat team, which endured the worst opening-night loss ever for a reigning champion. “I just remember we got beat,” Wade said. “I don’t remember the game. That’s how long ago that was. Different time.” Haslem remembers plenty. “It sticks,” Haslem said. “But it’s six years later. You learn and you move on and you try not to let it happen again. We’ve got a different group of guys. We’re smarter, me and Dwyane are. And we understand the challenges of defending the title now. We were naive. At that point, we thought we could do it again the next year and just do it again and do it again and do it again.” Well, actually, that is James’ goal. He didn’t come to Miami for one title. He came for multiple ones. That’s one of many reasons why even he’s downplaying the ring ceremony and placing his focus squarely on another marquee matchup with Boston. That being said, he’s not overstating it, either. “Game one doesn’t determine who’s the better team,” James said. “I mean, it’s game one. Tomorrow night will not be what we want to be in April.”

his brother Luciano Yos, 15 and the two danced in an embrace with their parents. “This is the greatest thing,” Anthony said with a smile that could go no wider. “The Giants are my favorite team.” Someone in the crowd launched fireworks a few minutes after the game and the park was awash with fans, strangers hugging strangers and wine bottles and marijuana cigarettes being freely passed through the crowd despite a heavy police presence. “This is San Francisco, “said Laura Chu. “We know how to party.” Sara Vivas brought her 6year-old daughter Briana Cepeda from Oakland to view the game and join the celebration. They were both clad headto-toe in Giants garb. “This is something she will

seventh-best in the league and ahead of guys like Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice and Chris Johnson. “He’s answered the call and taken advantage of the opportunity and that’s what we expect from all our young people,” coach Mike Tomlin said of Dwyer. “This guy went over 1,500 yards in his last two years at Georgia Tech. He was ACC Player of the Year. He’s not foreign to running the football.” Dwyer isn’t quite ready to plead for more playing time, simply entrench himself as an NFL player. He’s done that with ease, giving the Steelers some needed balance to take some of the pressure off Roethlisberger. The offensive line has done its part too. The quarterback has been sacked just 13 times this season despite playing behind a shuffled unit that includes rookie right tackle Mike Adams. Throw in a passing scheme that has limited the number of hits Roethlisberger takes and the Steelers are building at the right time.

dreds of thousands fans, who lined the streets of downtown San Francisco. The parade ends at City Hall. The party started early in Civic Center park, with many showing up hours before the 5 p.m. game on a nice Indian Summer day in San Francisco. The city’s ubiquitous food trucks did a brisk business and drummers of all types beat their instruments throughout the game. “Where else in the world do you want to be tonight,” replied Dave Wormald of Toronto. Wormald and two other colleagues were in town for a business meeting and were watching the game at their hotel when they decided to embark for City Hall. “This is the place to be,” said Jim Vliet, Wormald’s colleague.

Pittsburgh travels to New York next week to face the Giants (6-2), though it suddenly doesn’t look as daunting a task as it did earlier this month after the Steelers pushed around Washington. The Redskins dropped 10 passes, many of the drops coming as a Pittsburgh defender closed in. “The Steelers, we’re going to run and hit,” Foote said. “Our safeties are going to hit. Our (defensive backs) are going to hit. You don’t see that in a lot of places with the corners coming up and hitting. That’s what makes this a special place.” One that prides itself on maintaining a certain standard regardless of who is on the field. When starting running back Rashard Mendenhall and top backup Isaac Redman went out with injuries while losing to the Titans on Oct. 12, Pittsburgh turned to third-stringer Dwyer. He’s hardly played like a benchwarmer. Legs churning constantly, Dwyer has run for 229 yards over the last two weeks and is averaging a healthy 5.2 yards per carry,

remember forever,” Sara said. Bars of all stripes, from the Castro to Chinatown were packed with supporters of the beloved Giants. So-called pedicabs whisked fans down roads blocked to traffic and revelers enjoyed a New Year’s Eve-like freedom to roam up and down streets usually clogged with traffic. Mayor Edwin Lee announced the ticker-tape parade would be held Wednesday at 11 a.m., down Market Street to Civic Center Plaza “The rain in Detroit couldn’t dampen the drive, talent and determination of the San Francisco Giants team tonight. Once again, the Giants brought our City together as we all cheered on our hometown heroes to another remarkable World Series victory,” he said. The 2010 parade drew hun-

While experienced players can keep the ball in bounds and stage extended rallies, just hitting the ball over the net can be a challenge for beginners. During a recent visit to the California School for the Blind, students mostly swatted balls into the ground, the net and toward the ceiling and walls. Few balls were returned, but teachers say some are developing that capability. Blind tennis was created in 1984 by Miyoshi Takei, a

“After I saw it there, I knew that I wanted to recreate the sport that I had seen back in the U.S.,” she said, so she started Tennis Serves. Vallabh first began teaching at Perkins School for the Blind in Watertown, Mass. with help from her high school tennis teammates. She then helped start similar programs at Lighthouse International in New York City and the California School for the Blind. Vallabh is working with

engineering students at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, Calif. to design a ball that continuously beeps to make it easier for blind players to track it. At the California School for the Blind, staff members said they were skeptical when Vallabh first approached them about teaching the adapted sport. “We were thinking, ‘How are we going to teach tennis?” said Mary Alice Ross, who teaches adapted physical edu-

cation. “My colleague said, ‘Tennis is like teaching football. It’s not something we really do.’” The California School for the Blind, which has about 90 students ages 5 to 22, offers many adapted sports activities and sports, including bowling, boating, swimming, hiking, ice-skating and goal-ball. Tennis is one of the most difficult sports for the visually impaired, but it brings unique rewards, teachers say. “When it comes to being

able to play a sport which is commonly only played by people with good vision, it’s a big self-esteem boost.” said John Healy, a dorm counselor who teaches adapted tennis. A 12-year-old student named Sebastian said he was surprised when he first heard about the adapted sport. “Tennis? How could blind people play tennis?” he said. “But then I was like, blind people can do anything they want. If you set your mind to it, then you can do it.”

Annie’s Mailbox

Creating a problem with the ex Dear Annie: I was with my ex-husband for 18 years before I divorced him. We have three children, and he hasn’t been the best father or husband. Lately, however, he has been nice and comes around to visit the kids. I appreciate the fact that he is doing this, but he is now saying things to me that make me uncomfortable. He slept on my couch a couple of nights because he stayed late with the kids when I was out. But now he is coming every day and staying over every night. We often end up sleeping together. I told him to stop coming around with the expectation that we are getting back together, because we are not. But he refuses to listen, and now he has asked me to marry him again. He won’t take “no” for an answer. What should I do? — Think I’ve Been Too Nice Dear Think: For starters, stop sleeping with him. By allowing him to spend the night in your bed, you are leading him on, encouraging him to believe there is hope. If you are serious about keeping him as an ex-husband, you must put an end to the couch sleepovers. When you return home, insist that he leave the premises. If you don’t have the backbone for that, drop the kids at his place instead of letting him come to yours. Or hire a babysitter. You are creating this problem. You can stop it. Dear Annie: How do you handle someone who constantly interrupts? She always knows more about the story and makes me feel inadequate. She’s loud, abrasive and obnoxious. We had a good group of friends, and this person ingratiated herself into our clique. Only one of the other women likes her, but it’s enough to keep her around. I’d love to put her in her place, but don’t want to cause a rift with my friends. — Annoyed Dear Annoyed: Does she do this with everyone, or only you? If it’s just you, it could be that you take a long time to get to the point, or you monopolize conversations more than you realize. However, if she does it to everyone, you can say, “I’m sure you have something to add, but I’d appreciate it if you would let me finish first.” Many people who interrupt do not realize they are doing it and need to be reminded, nicely, when they overstep. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Bring Back Wedding Etiquette,” who thought it was tacky that the bridal couple requested that guests contribute to their honeymoon. My son and his fiance also set up a website for guests to contribute to certain categories of their honeymoon expenses. They did this because they reside in a foreign country, but the wedding ceremony is in the U.S. They cannot carry gifts back with them, nor do they have a place here to store them. They are making the suggestion that if people want to give them a wedding gift, they can donate online. It may seem tacky to some, but they came up with the fund in order to be helpful. It is in no way meant to coerce anyone into paying for their honeymoon. People should consider the circumstances of the couple involved before they criticize. — Proud Mom of a Considerate Couple

As it has done for many years, the Shepherdstown Rotary Club this fall has provided free dictionaries and thesauruses to students at the elementary schools in the northeastern half of Jefferson County, including C.W. Shipley, North Jefferson, Shepherdstown and T.A. Lowery elementary schools. The books are purchased with club funds. The dictionaries are given to all the third-graders at the schools and the thesauruses to all the fifth-graders. This year, the books were distributed by teams of Rotary members during the third week of October. Shown above are students in Ms. Gentry’s third-grade class at Shepherdstown Elementary School displaying the dictionaries they had just received Oct. 16. The Rotarians who distributed the books that day were Dana Orsini and Michelle Liefke.

Austin Gregoryk, 11, a Charles Town Middle School seventh-grader, recently won the school logo contest. The PTSO voted on the best four logos out of many, and then the student body voted on the best logo. Austin’s logo will appear on school apparel and many other things that will be sold during the 2012-13 school year to benefit the school.

STEPHENS CITY, Va. — The Independent School of Winchester has introduced the election process into a cross-curricular project for students in grades 3-7. Under the direction of Brigitte DeHaven, the school’s Quantitative Reasoning teacher, students will learn about the Electoral College by analyzing data such as population, geographic location and political leaning (red state vs. blue state) and how it affects the election process. Using graphs to represent their data, students will make their own predictions of the

R E A L

outcome of the presidential election. “Math is so much more fun when you can apply it to realworld situations,” DeHaven said. “And when those situations are something the kids are seeing in the media and able to understand on a daily basis, it becomes exciting to them. It creates a confidence that can’t be gained through simply solving problems in a textbook.” On Election Day, the students will perform an original Reader’s Theater Play featuring excerpts, researched and selected by

the students, from prior presidents’ famous and infamous speeches. In the play, past presidents will gather to offer advice to the newly elected president on issues identified by students as being key to the well-being of our nation. The Independent School of Winchester is a co-educational, progressive program that provides instruction to students in grades K-7.

Congratulations to all, and a big How-How. During the upcoming year, the Greensburg Go-Getters have a lot of community service projects planned. Some of the projects club members have to look forward to include: Adopt-a-highway cleanup, collecting Toys for Tots at the club Christmas party, the Autism Walk in Washington, D.C., and stuffing Salvation Army Christmas stockings. Along with these wonderful community events, the club also is having club fundraisers to make money to help spruce up the Berkeley County Humane Society in the spring. On Monday, Nov. 19, the club will host an achievement dinner, and a public meeting to celebrate the year which the club just completed. Anyone who is interested in coming out to see all of the club’s accomplishments — or just to see what 4-H is about — can do so then for some food and fun.

KEYBOARD CALAMITY Dear Readers: Someone in Heloise Central had a mishap, spilling water all over her desk and keyboard. Luckily, the keyboard was saved. So, if this happens to you, keep these Heloise Hints in mind: First, turn off the computer, unplug the keyboard and disconnect it. Turn the keyboard upside down on some paper towels and let as much of the liquid drain out as possible. This may take a few hours. Water and other nonsugary liquids sometimes can be removed from the keyboard by blowing air over it using a

hair dryer. Move the dryer around, and don’t allow the keyboard to get too hot. Liquids like coffee, tea, alcoholic beverages and soda can damage keyboards beyond repair, because they can be sticky and may leave a residue behind. More than likely, this type of spill will result in the purchase of a new keyboard. If the spill is on a laptop, notebook, e-reader, etc., the device will need to be taken to a repair shop immediately. — Heloise HANDY MAGNIFYING GLASS Dear Heloise: I need to

Gerard Butler, left, and Jonny Weston in a scene from ‘Chasing Mavericks.’

‘Mavericks’ feels formulaic BY CHRISTY LEMIRE

Rated PG for:

AP MOVIE CRITIC

By all accounts, Jay Moriarity was a lovely young man: a talented, dedicated surfer whose enthusiasm and optimism were infectious throughout the Santa Cruz, Calif., community where he was well known and loved. But that doesn’t exactly make him the most compelling figure to place at the center of a film, at least not in the onenote way in which he’s depicted in “Chasing Mavericks.” This cloyingly familyfriendly production tells the story of the late surfer (played by newcomer Jonny Weston) in 1994, when he’s only 15 years old and dares to take on the dangerous and potentially deadly Mavericks surf break just up the coast from his home. Jay wants to conquer these waves ... well, because

Thematic elements and some perilous action they’re there. And he enlists a gruff, reluctant local legend, Frosty (Gerard Butler, struggling to hide his Scottish accent), to help him train. This sets up a “Karate Kid”-style, mentor-student, father-son formula in which the plucky underdog awakens early each day to complete a series of arduous tasks in preparation for a once-in-adecade, five-story-tall wall of water. Every step of the way is accompanied by the plainly spelled-out reasons why it matters. Nothing is left to our imagination or interpretation.

plete the picture when Hanson was suffering from some health issues. Some of the surfing footage is spectacular but the film as a whole lacks the kind of tonal and aesthetic imprimatur you’d want to see from a respected veteran, much less two. The film features some well-known names from the world of surfing but that doesn’t add much authenticity; despite the inherent peril involved in the sport, and in this particular location, everything feels very clean and safe. The surfer dudes don’t go around spouting stereotypically idiotic bro slang to each other, but they don’t feel like real people, either. “Chasing Mavericks,” a Fox 2000 release, is rated PG for thematic elements and some perilous action. Running time: 115 minutes. One and a half stars out of four.

Simulator shows teens dangers of texting, driving BY LEE JOHNSON

FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

GAINESVILLE, Ga. — Imagine this: A teen and a friend are on the way home. The teen driver tries to send a text message: “Mom, be home in 20. What’s for dinner? Bringing a friend.” But neither the message, nor the teens, make it to their destination. According to distraction.gov, 11 percent of all drivers younger than 20 involved in fatal crashes were reported as distracted at the time of the wreck. That age group, the website claims, has the largest proportion of drivers who were distracted. “Everybody really is included in

this problem — this distracted driving,” said Dylan Richardson, a representative from PEER Awareness, an organization focused on educating youth about healthy decisions. “It’s an epidemic, almost. It’s become the leading cause of death among teenagers and it’s a huge problem.” PEER has teamed with AT&T and is campaigning across the country through its “Txtng & Driving ... It Can Wait” program. The program, which made a stop recently at Flowery Branch High School, places students in a driving simulator where they’re asked to text and drive, hopefully seeing firsthand the dangers of distracted driving. “What we hope they gain from

About three-quarters of the teens surveyed said texting and driving is “common” among their peers and that nearly 90 percent of teens

Ever since, she’s been a local voice for ending distracted driving. “I couldn’t figure out a way to really tell teens about it and that’s why I started entering pageants and that’s been my focus in my speeches,” she said.

If Stewart is riding in a car, expect her to act as the texting police. “I take phones away from my friends when they’re driving and even the girls in the back seat and I put them in my purse,” she said.

Many of them wound up off the road or in head-on collisions with oncoming traffic. “You couldn’t focus on the road,” freshman Abbey

Cantrell said. “You had to multitask and I’m not good at multitasking.” Christian Cummings, a freshman at Flowery Branch, wound up in a head-on wreck at more than 45 miles per hour during the simulation. “I learned not to text and drive,” he said of the experience. “It’s the worst.
