Kannapolis water vote delayed

RIGHT ON TARGET

City wants to buy water from Albemarle; Alcoa ownership in question B Y H UGH F ISHER hfisher@salisburypost.com

Representative demonstrates crossbows at Hill’s Minnow Farm BY SHAVONNE POTTS spotts@salisburypost.com

Carter Thomason has been hunting with his family and friends for years. The 14-yearold uses a rifle but is interested in expanding to crossbows. His grandmother, Barbara Thomason, brought him to Hill’s Minnow Farm where Rick Spoon talked to him about the advantages and components of a crossbow. Spoon, a representative for Parker Compound Crossbows, was on hand Monday at Hill’s Minnow Farm to talk to those interested in learning more about crossbows. Spoon travels with a trailer, target and a set of crossbows to educate people on the mechanics of using one and about a recently changed law. As of Aug. 1, it’s legal for licensed hunters to hunt with crossbows in North Carolina. It is now considered a legal hunting weapon anytime bow-andarrow hunting is allowed. This change in hunting regulations has prompted an increase in crossbow sales, but it hasn’t changed the requirements for legally purchasing a crossbow in North Carolina.

KANNAPOLIS – The question of whether Alcoa will get a new 50-year-license to operate on the Yadkin River has delayed Kannapolis’ consideration of a water sale agreement with Albemarle. Without any preliminary discussion, the Kannapolis City Council voted unanimously to remove discussion of an interlocal agreement and a water purchase agreement with Albemarle and Concord from Monday night’s agenda. After the meeting adjourned, City Manager Mike Legg said the decision was based on questions about the Alcoa licensing question that remain unanswered. “There are a lot of things going on with the Yadkin River issues and the State (of North Carolina),” Legg said. “… We have some information, but maybe not enough.” Legg said there’s no reason to believe Alcoa would try to block or limit Albemarle’s ability to take water from the Yadkin. But, he said, there may not be anything that keeps them from doing so, since Alcoa is not subject to the same regulations as a public utility. Alcoa formerly operated an aluminum plant on the Yadkin in Stanly county. Though the company no longer needs to generate electricity, its request for a new 50-year license has sparked debate over who should control the river. The company owns thousands of acres of land around and under the Yadkin. But cities in Cabarrus would like to buy water from Albemarle to meet growing demand. The Concord City Council approved the deal on August 12. If affected, the agreement would send water through a new $21 million pipeline to Cabarrus County.

School board finalizes budget, looks to future BY SARAH CAMPBELL

Prospective buyers must obtain a gun permit from the Sheriff’s Office first. It’s odd, Spoon admits, considering the crossbow shoots arrows and not ammunition.

“It has a rifle scope and rifle stock. Except when you cock it, it shoots an arrow,” he said. It’s precisely what Carter Thomason wanted to check out.

“I just want to see what it’s all about,” he said. Carter hunts deer, turkey and duck. He also does some

Murdock Study will focus on firefighters Program to determine the cause of higher rates of disease, cancer BY EMILY FORD eford@salisburypost.com

KANNAPOLIS — Firefighters have a deadly job. But flames and collapsing buildings are only some of the dangers they face. Others are silent killers — cancer and heart disease. Firefighters are more likely than the general population to develop several types of cancer, including testicular cancer, nonHodgkin’s lymphoma and multiple myeloma. They’re also at higher risk for coronary heart disease. To understand these risks and help find ways to live long after they’ve fought their last blaze, Kannapolis firefighters have turned to Duke University’s Murdock Study at the N.C. Research Campus. The study, named for campus founder and Dole Food

chairman David Murdock, will enroll 45 firefighters this week. The epidemiologic research project aims to enroll 50,000 people overall and identify genomic similarities across major chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes and arthritis. “Why am I at twice the risk as someone else?” said Scott Linebarger, assistant chief for the Kannapolis Fire Department. Linebarger became concerned in 2006 when the University of Cincinnati found an increased risk of 10 cancers for firefighters. Another study determined that heart attack is the leading cause of death for firefighters. Linebarger wants to know what he can do to lower the risk. “After reading these studies, what better place than the North Carolina Research Campus to seek help,” he said. Today’s forecast 86º/66º Periods of sun, thunderstorm

Duke University launched the Measurement to Understand the Reclassification of Disease Of Cabarrus/Kannapolis Study with a $35,000 gift from Murdock. “We’ve always known that firefighting is a very dangerous job,” Linebarger said. Firefighter go from asleep to “100 percent” in a matter of seconds, he said. “No one has to tell me that’s hard on my heart.” And firefighters have known for years that they are exposed to carcinogens, Linebarger said. They inhale benzene, diesel engine exhaust, chloroform, soot, as well as absorb them through the skin. The department has a mandatory physical fitness program and provides “the best personal protective equipment that we can buy, but that’s not the answer,” Linebarger said. “There’s something missing.” By enrolling in the Murdock Study, firefighters hope to learn “what we can do to even the playing field.” Linebarger wants to know

what he should eat to prevent cancer and heart disease. Duke’s study specializes in new biomarkers to help diagnose and treat chronic disease, not nutrition. But several other schools and companies at the Research Campus do. When Linebarger approached her two years ago, Dr. Ashley Dunham said she saw an opportunity to create a partnership in Kannapolis. Obtaining blood and urine samples from a high-risk group like firefighters will attract attention, she said. By partnering with someone who specializes in nutrition research or exercise science, Duke could help firefighters find answers, she said. “Part of what I hope this will do is move people to act,” Dunham said. While most Murdock Study participants must live in Kannapolis or Cabarrus County, any Kannapolis firefighter may enroll, regardless of where he or she lives. Contact Emily Ford at 704797-4264.

Rowan-Salisbury School System officials had to get creative to balance the current fiscal year budget and next year is likely to be much of the same. After months of cuts and looming uncertainly about state and federal dollars, the Board of Education adopted a budget that includes more than $165 million in operating costs Monday. The budget includes $6.1 million in federal stimulus money that will expire at the end of the year. “That means we’re automatically next year going to start with $6.1 million less,” board Chairman Dr. Jim Emerson said. Tara Trexler, the school system’s chief financial officer, said the district expects to receive a portion of the $298 million allocated to North Carolina schools through the federal Education Jobs and Medicaid Assistance Act. “There is a small glimmer of hope there will be jobs bill funding,” Trexler said. “Congress has recognized a need that school systems throughout the country are scrambling to try to make it through the next couple of years.” Personnel costs make up 83 percent of RSS’ operating costs. “That is why it’s critical that we minimize the effect of budget cuts as much as we can,” Trexler said. It is unclear at this time how much funding the $10 billion jobs bill will provide the school system. The state can distribute funding to school districts based on its own primary funding formula or districts’ relative share of federal Title I funds. The U.S. Department of Education estimates it will support about 160,000 jobs nationwide and about 5,700 in North Carolina. The Charlotte Observer reports CharlotteMecklenburg schools could receive $25 million in new federal money to restore teacher jobs.

In other news... • There’s still no word from rating agency Standard & Poor’s on the Kannapolis tax-increment financing plan. City Manager Mike Legg said he’d placed a call to his advisers Monday asking for information, but had heard nothing. “I guess you could say that no news is good news,” Legg said after the meeting. If Standard & Poor’s gives the city’s plan to issue TIF bonds for infrastructure a positive rating, the bonds are likely to sell. If not, the city will have to look elsewhere to fund or repay money fronted for millions in projects. • Council members unanimously approved two changes to the city’s Unified Development Ordinance. Minor changes to an ordinance on parking areas are designed to clarify regulations and, among other things, stop residents from permanently parking in their front yards. A second UDO change removed a potential loophole in the Adequate Public Facilities ordinance. • Council members heard an update on projects from the Water and Sewer

Authority of Cabarrus County. The Albemarle water agreement was not discussed. No action was taken. • City Clerk Bridgette Bell was recognized for receiving the title of Master Municipal Clerk from the International Institute of Municipal Clerks. Hired in 1987 by thencity manager Gene McCombs, Bell is one of only 67 to achieve this title for effectiveness in her role. Mayor Bob Misenheimer presented her with a plaque and thanked her for her guidance and aid throughout the years. • The council welcomed newly-hired finance director Eric Davis, who most recently has worked as a town manager for China Grove and Mount Holly. Davis thanked Legg for his confidence in him. “This is an exciting time for the city,” Davis said. • Mayor Misenheimer issued a proclamation asking citizens to set aside Sept. 11 as “a day to mourn, reflect and rededicate ourselves.” The proclamation also honors the heroism of rescue personnel, law enforcement and the military.

FROM 1a However, Superintendent Peter Gorman said he prefers to save the money until federal stimulus money expires at the end of the year, creating a “funding cliff.” Board member Karen South Carpenter said it’s important to take into account that the federal funding will help fill a void. “There seems to be some

making more than $1.5 million in cuts, which include: • Eliminating the exceptional children’s, science and math hiring incentive; • Eliminating two and a half vacant assistant principal positions; • Freezing three central office adminstration positions; • School system’s yearround employees working four 10-hour days this summer instead of the traditional five-day, 8-hour schedule; • A grant from the Robert-

son Family Foundation that will pick up the tab for elementary school trips this year, saving the school system $25,000. The district also slashed costs by reducing transportation costs and eliminating mentoring funds. The school system will offset the remaining shortfall of more than $700,000 with monies from its $6 million fund balance. Contact Sarah Campbell at 704-797-7683.

Other School board business... The following items were also discussed during Monday’s Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education meeting: • The board voted to add equine science and agriculture mechanics (small engines) to the course offerings at West Rowan High School. Principal Jamie Durant said the school hired an additional agriculture teacher who will be teaching the new classes. • Colby Cochran, director of assess-

ments and accountability, presented the school districts ABCs, Adequate Yearly Progress, graduation rate and test score reports. The reports are public record and links to the information are available through the school’s website at rss.k12.nc.us. • The board discussed its current policial advertising policy. The school district currently does not allow political candidates to advertise in school

publications. Board members Karen South Carpenter and Bryce Beard felt school board candidates should be allowed to purchase advertisements. Attorney Don Sayers said he would look at rewording the policy so that political parties, policies and causes were prohibited to advertise, rather than candidates. The board did not take action. Sayers will present the new policy at the next meeting for board approval.

Asked after the meeting why they voted to strike the item from the agenda, council members deferred to Legg. Legg said he felt the issue would ultimately be added to the Sept. 13 meeting agenda, though council members did not stipulate that in their vote. But Legg added, “Quite frankly, I don’t know how much will be resolved before this decision needs to be made.” He said he didn’t believe there were any misgivings about the agreement itself. “I think it’s an indication that we’ve got to make some pretty big decisions,” Legg said.

ing control of the Yadkin. “I would hope the State of North Carolina would protect Concord, Albemarle and Kannapolis in that scenario,” Legg said. The concern, Legg said, is whether there is any chance Alcoa could say it had no responsibility to supply Albemarle with water for sale to Concord and Albemarle. While it might be unlikely, Legg said it could conceivably happen. And for that reason, he said, more discussion is called for. “It’s not a big mystery,” Legg said, “it’s just that the answers are a big mystery.” Phone calls to Concord Mayor Scott Padgett and Albemarle Mayor Elbert Whitley were not immediately returned.

IS THAT A SNAKE WITH TWO HEADS?

ssmith@salisburypost.com

A Salisbury woman is offering a reward for the return of a Pekingese puppy stolen from the parking outside Old Navy on Faith Road while she and her daughters were shopping Friday afternoon. Ayana Thomas says the 6-month-old puppy, named Caramel, is sick and that she had planned to take the dog to the veterinarian. Thomas and her 11-year-old daughters were back-to-school shopping at Old Navy and left the dog in the car with the back windows rolled down. “We take very good care of her (Caramel),” Thomas said. “We have a portable water bowl.” Thomas told Salisbury police she ran out to the car to get a bag and noticed Caramel was trying to get out. She told Caramel to sit down, and went back inside the store. Thomas’ daughters went to check on Caramel to see if she was hot and needed water. A few minutes later, Thomas said, Caramel apparently attempted to jump out of the driver’s side window, which Thomas thought was rolled up. Salisbury Police Chief Rory Collins said the manager of Old Navy saw Caramel trying to jump, and he ran outside. But four other people saw Caramel, too, and went up to the car and took her, Thomas said. Collins said the Old Navy manager tried to convince the two women and two children who took Caramel to give him the dog so that when the owner came to the store asking about Caramel, he would have it there for her. The women refused, so he asked them for a name and telephone number. The manager gave the name and number to Thomas. But when Thomas called, the number did not match up with the name given — “Ginny Smith.” “They said they weren’t going to give him the dog,” Thomas said. “It turned out to be a bogus name and number.” Thomas and her girls have owned Caramel for two months. “My daughters are just heart-sickened over this,” she said. “My kids are not eating, they’re not sleeping, just sitting in the house upset all of the time.” Of the two women taking Caramel in front of their own children, Thomas said it makes her sick. “What kind of values are you teaching your children — that it’s okay to take someone else’s property,” Thomas said. “It’s not OK to take someone else’s dog. To do it in front of your children, it says a lot about your character. You’re an awful person.” The manager of the Old Navy told police the two women and children who took Caramel all had blonde hair, and one of the women was “older.” Thomas said the women and children are believed to be from the Statesville area. Caramel is a small Pekingese puppy, white and gold. She has big eyes, with dark circles. She is fluffy and has dark spots on the corners of her mouth. “She loves people and she loves to lick and give kisses all the time,” Thomas said. Thomas is offering a $500 reward for Caramel’s safe return. Anyone with information is asked to contact

Mike Lambert, a naturalist with Dan Nicholas Park and a snake breeder, bred a pair of corn snakes at his home in Salisbury. The female corn snake laid several eggs and one hatched out a two-headed baby snake, which is very rare. BY KARISSA MINN kminn@salisburypost.com

For some, it may be the stuff of nightmares. But for Salisbury naturalist and snake collector Mike Lambert, his two-headed snake is a “dream come true.” Lambert said the snake hatched last Wednesday from a clutch of 18 eggs. Each snake cuts a small hole in its shell and sticks its head through the opening. When Lambert noticed that there were two little heads poking out of one of the eggs, he began watching it more closely. “I assumed it was twins, because that happens fairly commonly,” he said. “But the more I watched it, the more I saw the heads always moved in sync, and I got to suspecting that it was a two-headed snake.”

See SNAKE, 6A A close look at the two-headed albino snake.

BB&T Sunset Run/Walk 5K to be held Sept. 3 I t’s funny how these things start.

Brian Miller credits 9-yearold Carter Jenkins for planting the seed leading to this year’s BB&T 5K Sunset Run in downtown Salisbury. Last fall, Miller was turning 40, angling for a Salisbury City MARK Council seat WINEKA and on the threshold of a big career change. He had recently taken up running again and decided to participate in the OctoberTour 5K run with his teenaged son. Miller and his son “had a ball,” he says. Miller also was impressed to see Carter Jenkins, then 8, running in the OctoberTour race. Miller had

coached Jenkins in baseball. This winter, after Miller had won a council seat and joined BB&T as its new city executive, he ran into Carter and his mother, Suzanne, at a basketball game. Their conversation went back to Carter’s participating in the fall race, and Miller began thinking about the potential a separate downtown run event might hold for his new bank, Downtown Salisbury Inc. and, possibly, some charitable organization. “The proverbial light bulb went off in my head,” he says. From the bank’s end, a run could be a great marketing tool, while also providing BB&T a vehicle for giving back to the community. For many years, Miller also

had been a Downtown Salisbury Inc. board member. He knew how successful the downtown’s Friday Night Out events had become, and especially how they could attract families. Betz McKeown, marketing and promotions manager for Downtown Salisbury Inc., immediately bought into the idea, and Sept. 3rd’s Friday Night Out seemed to be a perfect fit. It was going to be Kids’ Night, while also serving again as a kickoff to the Rowan County United Way’s fall campaign. Miller and others took the natural next step and asked whether the run they were talking about could be used to benefit the United Way. “So many ideas came together,” Miller says. “... We

got into a room, and we all started getting excited about it. It was a neat thing to be a part of.” Jackie Harris, campaign and marketing director for Rowan County United Way, says, “It was a natural fit.” During the three previous years, the United Way had used the Kids’ Night Out on a Friday to kick off its campaign. It has proved to be a good way for United Way agencies to set up kids’ games in the downtown and make themselves visible. The United Way also sponsors the soapbox derby race on North Main Street the same night. “To partner with us at this event made a lot of sense to us,” Harris says. “We definitely need all the help we can get.” So the BB&T 5K Sunset

School board race: Hogue says prepare children for the future BY SARAH CAMPBELL scampbell@salisburypost.com

Donna Ferguson Hogue said her children are her No. 1 priority. “First and foremost, I’m a parent,” she said. “This year, I have one child in elementary, one in middle and one in HOGUE high school in the Rowan-Salisbury School system” she said. Hogue is seeking a spot on the RSS Board of Education to make sure all students are

prepared for the future. She will face incumbent Kay Wright Norman and Eric Trail for the West area seat. “My mission is to bring a global perspective of education by ensuring effective spending, ready schools, parent and community education and career and college-ready students for the 21st century,” she said. Hogue said preparing children for the future is a twoway street. “Not only do we have to get the children ready to go to school but the schools have to be ready for the children,” she said. She said her career in early childhood education, working for Smart Start Rowan’s

More Program about eight years, made her realize the importance of identifying children’s specific needs and early intervention. “Schools have to be ready to face the challenges that come along and be able to meet children’s unique needs,” she said. Hogue said she thinks it’s essential to get parents involved in the learning process. “I believe parents are children’s first teachers,” she said. “We should educate parents on how to get their children college- and careerready.” Funding is one of the biggest challenges Hogue sees facing RSS in the future.

“We all know there are a lot of cutbacks in education,” she said. “We want to make sure that we are investing money in ways that are going to benefit the children and the family. “I was to make sure there is effective spending going on.” Richard Miller, Craig Pierce and W.F. Owens will compete for the North area seat. Mike Caskey, Troy Rushing and L.A. Overcash will face off for the South district seat. Incumbent Jean Kennedy is running unopposed for the special area seat. Contact Sarah Campbell at 704-797-7683.

5K FROm 3a Run/Walk was born. The night also will feature a half-mile Kids’ Fun Run, sponsored by Rowan Regional Medical Center. BB&T, with the help of 11 other sponsors, is underwriting the costs of the 5K run/walk, so all proceeds from registration fees can go to the Rowan County United Way. The same is true of the hospital’s sponsorship of the Kids’ Fun Run. It didn’t take long for everyone in the planning process to fall in love with the idea of a “sunset” run. “It really worked with the logo, too,” McKeown laughs. The 5K Sunset Run/Walk won’t take off from the 100 block of East Fisher Street until 8 p.m. All participants will be given glow-in-the-dark necklaces to wear, if they want. Miller has set a personal goal of having 150 runners in the 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk and 100 children (12 and under) in the Kids’ Fun Run. “I’d love to have twice that,” he says. The events will be held on the Friday night before Labor Day, and Miller and McKeown are hoping families view it as part of their “staycation” that holiday weekend. The BB&T 5K Run/Walk’s course will head down East Fisher Street to South Long Street, proceed to East Bank Street, hit South Main Street, proceed south to Fulton Street (at Curt and Geri’s Dairy Bar), travel north on South Fulton Street to Innes Street and loop over to South Church Street and a finish line near the Salisbury Post’s loading dock. Salisbury-Rowan Runners, under the guidance of David Freeze, are handling the details and organization of the race and making sure it’s a 5K distance. Registration on the day of the run will be at the Salisbury Post loading dock, though pre-registration already is under way online. The Kids Fun Run is ex-

pected to be an up-andback race in the vicinity of the Rowan Public Library so that participants are within sight of their family members throughout. It won’t start until 8:45 p.m. Miller also sees some tourism potential in the run. Overall and age category winners will be receiving “Downtown Dollars” to spend with downtown merchants. By the time the run finishes, most of the stores will be closed, meaning maybe those winners and others will return to Salisbury some other day, Miller says. McKeown says most of the people already preregistered for the Sunset Run/Walk are from out of town. Category winners will receive medals (gold, silver, bronze), a bottle of Cheerwine and the Downtown Dollars, in addition to the Salisbury goodie bag that comes with being a participant. The overall male and female winners receive a “Downtown Salisbury Experience,” which will include accommodations in Salisbury, a dinner at Stelia’s, ice cream at Spanky’s and tickets to this year’s OctoberTour. Winners will be recognized at the awards presentation, held on the stage in the 100 block of East Fisher Street. With its 6 p.m. start, the United Way’s soapbox derby race should be completed before the Sunset Run/Walk begins. Harris, of the United Way, says a lot of credit must go to Miller, McKeown, Freeze, Steve Clark (of the city), Melonie Thompson of the Salisbury Police Department and Peggy Link, vice president of public relations for the United Way. Link will be responsible for all the volunteers needed during the night of the run. “I cannot wait for this run,” Harris says. “They have worked so hard to make this the best it can possibly be in the first year.” Who will be the official starter for this first Sunset Run/Walk? Carter Jenkins, of course.

Rick Spoon sets up Carter Thomason for a demonstration of a crossbow at Hill Minnow Farm. Spoon is traveling to several hunting supply stores answering questions from hunters about new laws regarding the use of crossbows for hunting. His daughters have taken classes to explain and educate people locally about crossbows. Since being licensed a couple of weeks ago, Hill said he’s sold a couple of crossbows. And Hill disagrees with hunters who say the introduction of crossbows will diminish the deer population. “Other states have shown a significant increase in deer herd. It’s because it’s under management control,” Hill said. There aren’t a lot of does being killed, Spoon said. Killing more does would help balance the herds, Hill said. Sales of crossbows have increased, Spoon said.

helpful to women or children who are unable to pull a bow and arrow. Not everyone is excited about the new hunting law. Jeremy Mammano has bow hunted since his teens. He uses a compound bow, which still requires him to pull the bow and fire the arrow on his own strength. “The crossbow takes a lot of the sport out of it,” he said. “I really never thought they would legalize it.”

He acknowledges the crossbow opens the sport to people who otherwise might not have been able to take part. “It draws faster and it’s Contact Shavonne Potts at more accurate. It’s made bowing a whole lot easier,” he said. 704-797-4253. Terry Hill, owner of Hill’s Minnow Farm, said he recently became licensed to sell crossbows. He is the first business owner in Rowan County with a permit to sell, he said.

When it comes to travel reimbursements for Work First, the decision to pay up front or afterward is left up to each county. But after a client had a problem meeting the work experience component, Rowan County changed its policy. The client told the Department of Social Services board in July she moved from Stokes County, which provides weekly gas vouchers to clients to assist with transportation to meet their work experience. Rowan County did not.

Clients had to submit receipts and receive reimbursements. Essentially, the client was not paid up front for gas and thus could not afford to meet the requirements for the program. Now the program provides gas cards for clients with a need. Social Services Director Sandra Wilkes said at the time the problem was not addressed in time to help that particular client when she needed it, but it will help in the future.

The new law, Spoon added, says a person can hunt on private land using a bow and can hunt on Sunday, something that was previously not allowed. In March 2009, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission adopted the proposal to allow the use of crossbows without permit, but it was widely opposed. North Carolina is the only state in the southeast that requires hunters to get a pistol permit to hunt with a crossbow. The crossbow can be used to shoot small, medium or large game, he said. One big draw is that it brings back those hunters who, because of disability or age, could not pull a traditional bow. The crossbow also is

FROM 3a By midnight, Lambert’s curiosity had gotten the better of him, and he opened the egg slightly to find out for sure. Sure enough, it was a snow corn snake with two heads. The young snake came out of the egg on its own around midday Thursday, having fed enough on the egg sac to sustain it for nearly two weeks. Two-headed snakes are quite rare. They form when twins that develop in one egg fail to separate. They often have trouble eating and do not survive more than a few months, Lambert said. “If they live and eat and thrive, they become quite famous, normally,” he said. What about his newlyhatched snow corn snake? Lambert said survival depends on what other abnormalities the snake may have, but right now it appears to be healthy and may have a good chance. The telling point will be next week, when the reptile will shed its skin for the first time and be ready to eat. “I do expect this one to try to eat with both heads,” Lambert said. “It has two brains, and it has all of the sense organs, like the tongue, which it uses mainly to find food.” The snake already has developed a unique, hesitating

Marshall differs from Hagan on tobacco tax DURHAM (AP) — Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elaine Marshall said Monday she would have likely voted against a plan approved last year that increased tobacco taxes to pay health insurance for low-income children. She would have been the only Democrat in Congress to do so. The proposal that passed with the support of some Republican senators raised the federal tax on a pack of cigarettes from 39 cents to $1. Supporters of the program estimated that it will cover an additional four million low-income children under the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. “These are challenging times,” Marshall said told agricultural leaders in a speech Monday night. “Tobacco is under pressure. Providing health insurance to four million children was a worthy goal, but politicians cannot continue to look at tobacco as a cash cow for all their pet programs.” Marshall, North Carolina’s secretary of state, said in an interview after the event that she would have likely voted against the plan if she were in Congress at the time. Marshall’s campaign opponent, Republican Sen. Richard Burr, also voted against the bill. But his Democratic counterpart, freshman North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan, voted for it, angering some agriculture industry workers. Hagan said at the time that she vehemently opposed the funding mechanism, calling it unfair to states like North Carolina, the nation’s largest producer of flue-cured tobacco. She herself acknowledged that the tobacco tax increase could cost the state 3,000 jobs and up to $36 million in revenue shortfalls. “I will fight tooth and nail to fight any attempts to kill this important crop,” Marshall said. Marshall spoke at an event hosted by the North Carolina Agribusiness Council. Burr spoke separately at the event that touched on issues such as immigration and energy.

Lambert also maintains a collection of his own, which currently contains 150 snakes, at his Salisbury home. He said his w i f e , Gaynell, supports his passion and has even taken one of the snakes to Vacation Bible School for a demonstration. This has been Lambert’s first successful breeding and hatching season, he said. His home business is called Dunns Mountain Reptiles. “I’ve actually been selling babies to folks that want to keep a corn snake in the aquarium,” Lambert said. If it survives, the two-headed snake will stay with Lambert, he said — unless a particularly good offer comes along. He said healthy, grown snakes with two heads are quite valuable, and one expert estimated his snake was worth between $8,000 and $10,000. “It’s like a dream come true,” he said, “for a herp nut like me.” Contact Karissa Minn at 704-797-4222.

The five-inch-long, pencilthin reptile has very light pink and white coloring and pink eyes. Corn snakes are native to the Southeast, Lambert said. This one’s unusual coloring is the result of a certain genetic pairing. Its parents are albino corn snakes that lack black or brown pigmentation. Lambert said both parents also carry a recessive gene that produces snakes without red, yellow or orange pigmentation. Their offspring inherited both. Growing up, Lambert wanted to work in herpetology, which is the study of reptiles and amphibians. “When I was a kid, I just had a fascination with snakes,” Lambert said. “My mom was very supportive, and she would let me catch snakes in the summer and keep them in aquariums.” That interest was put on hold, though, and he ended up working in the textile business

Ex-Marine convicted of killing pregnant colleague GOLDSBORO (AP) — A jury on Monday convicted a former Marine of first-degree murder in the death of a pregnant colleague who had accused him of rape, a charge that stalled the military career he treasured. Cesar Laurean, 23, of Las Vegas, was found guilty of killing Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach, 20, of Vandalia, Ohio, in December 2007. The two were assigned to the same logistics unit at Camp Lejeune, the base in Jacksonville that is home to about 50,000 Marines. The former Marine corporal was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. The victim’s mother, Mary Lauterbach, read a statement before the judge imposed the sentence. She told Laurean to look at his mother and see the pain in her face.

“I feel so sorry for your daughter. She will have to live with the shame that her father is in prison for murdering not one but two people,” Mary Lauterbach said. Defense lawyer Dick McNeil told the court Laurean would appeal. The judge ordered the state’s appellate defender’s office to represent Laurean’s appeal. Laurean also faced three other charges of robbing Lauterbach of her bank ATM card, and of theft and attempted fraud for allegedly trying to use it to withdraw cash. He was found not guilty of the robbery charge, but Laurean was convicted on the fraud and theft charges. The jury of seven women and five men deliberated for three hours Monday before convicting Laurean. The rape accusation never was corroborated, and a

sual, Laurean could have been punished because it is against Marine Corps rules to have sex with a subordinate. McNeil had argued prosecutors failed to prove Laurean swung the crowbar that fractured Lauterbach’s skull. Laurean’s wife, also a Marine, could have exploded when Lauterbach appeared at the couple’s home on the day she disappeared. Authorities described Christina Laurean as a cooperating witness and have not charged her with any crime.

North Carolina elections board ready to discuss Perdue flights three Democrats and two Republicans, must decide whether that’s enough. It could expand the review to include a public investigatory hearing, issue civil fines against campaigns or take no further action. There have been partisan volleys since the original report was issued in June. Republicans say board chairman Larry Leake and director Gary Bartlett obstructed work by the board’s chief investigator, Kim Strach. Perdue’s campaign has cried foul because Strach’s husband was, until recently, the state GOP’s general counsel. Whatever the board decides, it almost certainly will lead to accusations of political bias. Any decision will make it easier “to doubt the validity, with all the stories that are surrounding the board right now,” North Carolina State University political science professor Andy Taylor said. “It sort of obfuscates the matters.” Bartlett attached a memo to Strach’s initial report in June saying there was no evidence the campaigns intentionally tried to break the law. Strach filed a supplemental report over the weekend with more information on Perdue’s flights. Republican Party leaders have said Perdue should be treated just like Easley, a Democrat whose campaign was fined $100,000 last October for failing to report dozens of flights he took. The board also referred the case to a local prosecutor to

consider criminal charges. The Perdue campaign has said that unlike Easley, Perdue campaign leaders told board officials in early 2008 about potential problems after they shifted to new campaign reporting software, agreed to perform a review in early 2009 and fixed problems voluntarily. No additional action is needed, said campaign spokesman Marc Farinella, calling the problems the result of an inadequate process for collecting, monitoring and reporting flight information. “If the board decides a fine is appropriate, that wouldn’t be an unreasonable resolution,” he said. He added, “there is no evidence anywhere that anything occurred other than sloppiness. It would seem hard to understand ... what the arguments for continuing this investigation would be at this point.” Board member Chuck Winfree, a Republican, said a public hearing, complete with subpoenas and witness testimony, may be needed if the campaign appeared indifferent to accurate flight reporting. That would be “something the state board needs to deal seriously with,” he said. Strach’s supplemental report said the Perdue campaign’s process for documenting and disclosing flights had reached “a sophisticated level” by mid2007. Strach also said campaign documents show there were three more campaign flights from 2004 to

2007 that have never been reported. Perdue campaign attorney John Wallace asked in April that Strach recuse herself from the investigation because her husband, Phil Strach, was GOP general counsel until recently. State Republican Party Chairman Tom Fetzer filed an initial complaint against Perdue last fall. “I believe that you need to recognize that you are not in a position to conduct an unbiased inquiry into issues raised by the Republican Party or on its behalf,” Wallace wrote Strach. Strach defended her work, pointing out she has investigated both Democrats and Republicans in her job. She said her husband’s position had nothing to do with it. “That in no way affected the way I made the review,” Strach said Monday. “I stand behind my work.” Fetzer said last week Phil Strach had no involvement in the GOP complaint. He’s called on Leake, a Democrat, to recuse himself from Tuesday’s discussion because Fetzer alleges Leake and Bartlett tried to limit the reach of Strach’s probe of Perdue’s campaign. Leake said Monday that he had participated in interviews with Strach to help the board complete its work

into the issues in a timely manner. He said he had been involved in previous investigations as well. “I don’t believe that trying to move an investigation along is in any way obstructing an investigation,’

he said. Strach’s supplemental report showed she interviewed seven more Perdue campaign workers this summer, including 2008 campaign manager Zach Ambrose.

RALEIGH (AP) — With more than 40 flights disclosed late and a few still unaccounted for, Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue should learn today whether her campaign has done enough to satisfy the State Board of Elections as it reviews aviation expenses that were left off of campaign reports. B o a r d members meeting in Asheville have in hand a review of private air travel by 17 PERDUE gubernatorial candidates since 2004. The review has uncovered shortcomings in how several candidates reported flights, but the examination has focused largely on Perdue. The board initially investigated only former Gov. Mike Easley’s campaign. The review began in earnest in February, but the issue of whether candidates are reporting flights donated to them by political allies has been in the panel’s sights for more than a year. Before the broader exam began, the Perdue campaign already had amended expense reports going back much of the last decade to add flights it says were uncovered during a self-audit of its finances. The Bev Perdue Committee also then paid tens of thousands of dollars in campaign funds to people who flew them around. The board, comprised of

RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina civil rights leaders are calling for new probes into the state’s crime laboratory following revelations of workers misrepresenting blood evidence in dozens of cases. Multiple media outlets reported that the state chapter of the NAACP, along with other groups, called Monday for reviews of the work done by the six other units in the State Bureau of Investigation’s crime lab. Pat McCoy, the brother of murder victim Kathy McCoy, says sloppy work and misconduct hurt families by calling into question the validity of verdicts. Along with new investigations, the NAACP wants an immediate moratorium on any new death penalty sentences. The group is also calling on Gov. Beverly Perdue to commute all current death sentences until those cases can be reviewed.

Powerful joint pill flying off drug store shelves Clinical trial; participants began to feel noticeable results in just 6 days (UMS) – Imagine a pill that can start helping you get around more easily in just a matter of days.5 Then think of how great it would be for your joints to begin feeling better too. Well there’s no reason to imagine, a team of scientists has delivered an amazing joint health supplement that’s been clinically shown to improve mobility and joint comfort.2 Now, after years of development and testing it’s hitting the shelves at all major U.S. pharmacies. This remarkable joint health pill is called Fast Acting Trigosamine®. It has been clinically shown to produce amazing results; 81% of the participants started feeling better just days after taking the recommended dosage and an incredible 100% reported their joints felt better just midway through the 8 week clinical trial.2,3,5 “I’ve never seen relief like this before,” said Dr. Joseph Dietz.1 “Our goal was to formulate Trigosamine so that people would start to feel results quickly, and based on the feedback from consumers along with the clinical data I’d say we hit the bulls-eye with this powerful pill,” added Dietz. National drug store shipments are being delivered, but as of today there’s no way to know which stores actually have product on their shelves. “Until we know all the shelves are stocked we’ll ship Trigosamine directly to people’s homes. As an added bonus, all local residents who call the Regional Health Hotline at 1-866-941-7632 before the 48-hour deadline expires can also qualify for a significant discount,” said Darla Miller, Distribution Director for the company. “We’re shipping pills on a firstcome, first-served basis; callers just have to be sure they give the bonus approval code of TG14069 when they call and we’ll take care of everything for them,” she said. “We know that people suffer-

ing with joint discomfort want Trigosamine, the phones have been ringing like crazy. We strongly recommend that local readers call right away to make sure they get their fair share,” said Miller. Trigosamine’s formula has a special combination of ingredients that until now have never been blended into a pill. It’s this special mixture that was clinically tested and is responsible for delivering the incredible results. One of the key ingredients is hyaluronate, which is a building block of “human joint oil” and known by medical professionals as synovial fluid. This remarkable molecule can absorb up to 1000 times its own weight in water helping to lubricate the joints which reduces friction while acting as a “shock absorber” allowing for effortless comfortable motion.5 “Synovial fluid is part of what allows young people to be highly active without getting sore joints. But as we age we produce less of this fluid which can force bones and joints to grind together causing nagging discomfort,” said Dr. Dietz. “This remarkable combination of ingredients is what makes Trigosamine work so well. It really helps people to move more freely and with greater flexibility,” said Dietz.5 Trigosamine’s powerful re sults are all supported by a recently completed randomized, doubleblind placebo controlled clinical study which is considered to be the “gold standard” for joint health supplements. While no pill works for everyone, during this clinical trial, every one of the participants that took this amazing supplement reported an improvement in their joint comfort. The data also shows that their joint comfort just kept getting better the entire time they were taking Trigosamine during clinical study.2,5 On the other hand, the clinical

N PROOF THAT IT WORKS: Dr. Philip Howren was so astounded by Fast Acting Trigosamine’s® clinical results that he said; “Yes, I am thoroughly impressed with the clinical data, in fact I now take the pill myself to get the joint relief I need. It’s my number one recommendation to anyone who suffers with joint discomfort,” added Dr. Howren.4 participants that were taking the placebo experienced much different results. Those taking the placebo developed increased joint discomfort and soreness during the clinical study, which is the exact opposite of what happened to participants taking the Fast Acting Trigosamine pills.2 “For participants to get this type of relief is simply amazing,” said Dr. Joe Dietz. “In all my years of clinical research, I’ve never seen that type of a response before. This powerful supplement is simply remarkable for those suffering with sore joints,” he added. The tough part now will be how to get it. “National pharmacy shipments are happening daily, but as of right now there’s no way to know which drug stores have it and which ones

don’t,” said Darla Miller. But for those who want to be among the first to get it the company has opened a Regional Health Hotline so people can have it shipped directly to their homes. Local readers can also qualify for a huge discount if they’re lucky enough to get through before the 48-hour deadline expires. The number to call right now is 1-866-941-7632. “Until shipments get to all the drug stores we’re shipping it directly to people who call our hotline,” said Miller. “All they have to do is

(Actual Size) Fast Acting Trigosamine combines three powerful compounds to quickly improve joint comfort.5 1. HYALURONATE-13: One tiny molecule of this remarkable compound can hold an amazing 1,000 times its weight in water. This allows naturally occurring hyaluronate to bind water, making the joints extremely slippery allowing them to slide smoothly over one another.2,5 2. GLUCOSAMINE SULFATE-15: Review studies show glucosamine maintains healthy cartilage in the joints by inhibiting joint destroying enzymes. The compound also builds up naturally present amounts in the blood stream used to build healthy cartilage.5 3. RAPIDFLEX FORMULA-61: The patented ingredients in RapidFLEX improve overall joint performance and one ingredient increases the speed in which nutrients are absorbed.5 N HEALTHY JOINT: A Diagnostic x-ray reveals a human knee joint that has the proper amount of synovial fluid to lubricate the joint and act as a comfortable shock absorber. 5

Clinical strength diet pill delivers 5 times more weight loss Drug store sales soar; clinical study data confirms results (UMS) – Over 10 million doses have already been shipped to dieters so far; and sales are expected to climb even higher for the diet pill called Apatrim®. “We knew we had a great product, but it’s even exceeded our expectations,” said Ken Geis, Manager of Call Center Operations. “People just keep placing orders, it’s been pretty amazing,” he said. There are some very good reasons for this diet supplement’s remarkable success. The results from the clinical trial were very impressive. Participants taking Apatrim’s active ingredient as directed lost an average of 5 times more weight than those taking a placebo during the 4-week U.S. study.1,3 These results were achieved without changing the participant’s daily diet or exercise routine.1,4 While no diet pill works for everyone, an amazing 100% of the participants taking Apatrim as directed either lost weight or inches off of their waistline during the 4 week clinical study. Some participants experienced great results, losing as much as 8 lbs and up to 2 inches off their waist.1,3,4 The U.S. clinical study was conducted in Los Angeles; the study included healthy, overweight individuals between the ages of 31 and 73. The caloric intake and level of exercise was not disclosed. The participants were instructed

not to change the food they were eating and not to add any exercise. They were specifically told not to change their daily routine; just take two pills 30 minutes before lunch and dinner. Apatrim’s active ingredient has a known ability to help control hunger pangs, this allows people to eat the foods they want and always seem to be craving; because they’ll just want to eat less.4 Industry researchers believe that Apatrim works by suppressing a person’s appetite.4 “By suppressing their appetite, dieters consume fewer calories which can lead to weight loss,” said Dr. Joseph Dietz, Director of Health Science, Research & Development for PatentHEALTH. “But consum-

ers should always keep in mind that there is no substitute for proper diet and exercise when it comes to losing weight.” Professionals in the weight loss and fitness industries also agree that Apatrim is the real thing. Mark Loy, a personal trainer, has had some of his clients use Apatrim with amazing success.2 “I heard about Apatrim so I checked out the facts then decided to try it as a part of my training program,” Loy said. “It’s really helped some of my clients to control their eating. I’ve seen people get unbelievable results while taking Apatrim,” said Loy. “Sign me up, I’m a believer.” Dr. Joseph Dietz was impressed

with the quality of the clinical trials as well as the U.S. patent. “When I read over the clinical results, the U.S. patent and all of the other scientific support I immediately knew we needed to use this weight loss compound,” said Dietz. “The results are real; Apatrim is a great product that’s been shown to help people lose weight.” All of the big retail pharmacies including CVS/pharmacy and Walgreens have placed orders for Apatrim. But to make it easier for people to get it now, the company has set up a Direct Order Hotline for the next 48 hours. Starting at 8:00 am today, all

consumers have to do is call 1-866-964-2349 and ask for Dept. AP9669; orders will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. “For those people who call the order line to have Apatrim shipped directly to them right now, we’ll guarantee they’ll get product and they can also qualify for a 33% discount,” said Ken Geis. “But this discount will only be available through the order hotline for the next 48 hours,” he said. So for those who choose not to call or miss the deadline you may have to pay more for Apatrim or possibly run the risk of not finding it at the drug store. N On the web : www.Apatrim.com

Where to get it: 1. IMMEDIATE HOME DELIVERY: For the next 48 hours call the Apatrim National Order Center at 1-866-964-2349 and ask for Dept. AP9669 (ask about the local readers discount*). Begin calling at 8:00 AM EST. 2. AT THE PHARMACY: It has been confirmed that CVS/pharmacy and Walgreens have placed orders for Apatrim. * local readers discount ends in 48 hours.

N GREAT RESULTS: Allison Garwood (front) and Renee Pellegrini pick up a bottle of Apatrim® at the drug store. Incredibly, 100% of the participants in the U.S. Clinical trial got results taking Apatrim.3 Consumers unable to find it can call 1-866-964-2349 to have Apatrim shipped directly to their homes.

Biologists offer advice on fox sightings The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is reminding residents that foxes sighted in urban and suburban settings are not necessarily rabid or dangerous, and residents can take a few simple steps to avoid conflict with the animals. Simply seeing a fox is not a cause for alarm. Catching a glimpse of one can actually be a rewarding experience in that it provides an opportunity to witness one of North Carolina’s most adaptable species. However, people still should not approach foxes or fox dens, even if they seem harmless. If the fox makes a den for pups, do not disturb them. Do not approach, touch or feed the fox or its pups. In most cases, citizens that simply see a fox do not need to take any action. However, some action might be necessary in situations where foxes have become habituated to people. In those scenarios,

people can and should take steps, such as yelling, banging pots and pans and setting off legal fireworks, to chase foxes from yards and neighborhoods. Be aggressive and repeat these actions if the foxes do not leave. In order to prevent a situation where this type of action is needed: • Don’t feed wild animals — they can lose their fear of people. • Make sure you are not indirectly feeding wildlife — by cleaning up pet food, securing trash in an animalproof container, keeping barbecue grills clean and removing bird feeders. • Establish protective barriers to keep wildlife from entering basements, crawl spaces, attics and beneath decks, where they might build nests or dens. • Secure pets or keep them indoors. Dogs can disturb dens, prompting aggressive behavior from the foxes.

• Clear overhanging tree limbs or other means of access that wildlife can use to enter a structure. • Clear fallen fruit from around trees. Encourage neighbors to follow these same methods. If the above solutions fail to remedy the problem, contact the Commission at 919707-0010. If a fox exhibits signs of rabies, such as aggression, stumbling and foaming at the mouth, call your local animal control office.

District 5 hearing The Wildlife Commissioners of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission voted to change the location for its District 5 public hearing on Sept. 8. The annual public hearing will be held in the auditorium of Central Carolina Community College, 764 West Street, Pittsboro. Previously, the Dis-

trict 5 hearings had been held in the second-floor courtroom in the Civil Courts Building, Graham. District 5 includes Rockingham, Guilford, Randolph, Caswell, Alamance, Chatham, Lee, Person, Orange, Granville and Durham counties A series of nine public hearings across the state solicits comments on proposed changes to hunting, fishing and trapping regulations. All hearings begin at 7 p.m. After the hearings and a review of all comments, the Wildlife Commissioners then vote whether or not to adopt the proposed rules. This year’s hearings are also the first to be held in September since the commission adjusted its rulemaking cycle.

Tough new rules ground some fishermen PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — Mike Secondo remembers the days when Plymouth’s docks outshone its rock. Tourists swarmed the town pier in the 1970s and ‘80s, snapping pictures and bantering with commercial fishermen as they unloaded another shimmering haul for Secondo’s company, Reliable Fish, to truck to points south. Secondo is convinced Plymouth tourists went home remembering the fishermen more than Plymouth Rock, which commemorates the Pilgrims’ landing in 1620. “You couldn’t move, (the tourists) were in awe of what they were looking at, the fish, the boats, the conversations that we were having,” he said. “I mean, it was something years ago.” Today, Plymouth’s fishermen are all but gone. Last year, according to federal statistics, Plymouth had zero landings of groundfish — such as cod, haddock and flounder. Tough new rules enacted in May have fishermen at New England’s major ports, Gloucester and New Bedford, worried their history will fade away as fishermen faced with low catch limits sell out to larger interests. It’s already happened in smaller ports, slowly changing the character of the New England coast. Groundfishing has historically employed large numbers in good jobs. The romance of the deep-sea pursuit of fin fish is embedded in a region where its most famous cape is named

after its most famous fish, the cod. People don’t want that way of life to become just a memory. “Is it progress to switch to a waterfront that produces food to a waterfront that hosts cocktail parties?” asked Warren Doty, a selectman in Chilmark on Martha’s Vineyard, where fishermen are struggling to preserve a working waterfront on Menemsha Harbor. A recent analysis indicates how densely the Northeast industry has consolidated around the major remaining ports. The study by Cap Log Group Inc. and funded in part by the Environmental Defense Fund indicates that 31 million pounds of the 38 million pounds of groundfish caught in 2007 in Massachusetts, or 82 percent, were landed by vessels from either New Bedford, Gloucester or Boston. Meanwhile, federal statistics show groundfishing has withered or vanished in numerous small and mid-

sized ports in the last 30 years. Rockland, in mid-coast Maine, landed 16 million pounds of groundfish three decades ago, but none last year. Jerry Carvalho said fishing boats once jammed city docks in Newport, R.I., where he’s fished for three decades. Now, Newport is a tourist town that sells its beauty and Gilded Age history — but almost no fish. The city went from 14 million pounds of groundfish in 1980 to a scant 37,000 in 2009. At the Boston Fish Pier in South Boston, the smells of fish and diesel and the beeps of a forklift in reverse mark a waterfront that’s still working, albeit with fewer workers. Veteran fisherman Mike Walsh remembers gear shops, an ice house and more fishing boats, not just at the pier, but stretching along the waterfront to berths downtown. Now, he sees types of vessels that weren’t there two and three decades ago, such as the water taxis that putter by and recreational boats like the one docked across the way. Walsh knows waterfront property is coveted by interests with deeper pockets than his: office buildings surround the pier. But the city and region would sorely miss his fresh catch if Boston’s fishermen disappear, he said. “Come on, this is all natural, no additives here,” Walsh said. “You cut the meat off the bone and you eat it, that’s it. You ain’t going to get better.”

Ted Nugent fined for deer-baiting MARYSVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Ted Nugent says he should have been better informed about California game laws after pleading no contest to misdemeanor charges of deer-baiting. Nugent said on his website Wednesday that he takes full responsibility for the hunting incident televised on a February episode of his Outdoor Channel hunting show. California game wardens watching the show saw Nugent kill an immature buck during the hunt in Northern California. Investigators found that the deer had been eating bait before being killed. Baiting wildlife is illegal in California. Nugent pleaded no contest last week to baiting the deer and not having a properly signed hunting tag. A Yuba County Superior Court judge ordered Nugent to pay a $1,750 fine.

Road signs help travelers find restaurants, gas stations, accommodations and various points of interest. If signs aren’t enough, modern vehicles are equipped with a G.P.S. and other helpful gadgets that allow the driver to easily locate almost anything along the highway. Wouldn’t it be nice if fishermen had similar resources available to help them find fish? They do, but most signs aren’t as obvious. Among the easiest fish signs to recognize are jumps, ripples, wakes and tails or fins protruding above the surface. Anglers get excited when they see fish break the water, because this is usually an indication that they are actively feeding. But, fish breaking the water, particularly small baitfish, are very difficult to see from afar. Therefore, savvy anglers watch for diving gulls and terns, another sure sign that fish are feeding on the surface. Fish signs can also be real signs, like the ones attached to the poles on Lake Norman that warn boaters of rocks and shoals. While shallow water is hazardous to boaters, it is a magnet for bass and other game fish. Two signs that have tempted people for years are, “Wet Paint and “No Fishing.” How many times have you ever tested to see if wet paint is really wet? And, often the best fishing in a given area is within casting distance of a “No Fishing” sign. Could it be possible that the fish have signs printed to provide them with a safe place to live? Those going for catfish look for signs of freshwater mussel shells scattered along the shorelines. Opened shells are an indication that a mussel bed is nearby. Muskrats and Arkansas blue catfish feast on them. Flying or floating insects also attract bass, bream and crappie. Bank and stream fishermen are always on the lookout for signs of an insect hatch, knowing full well that if they find one, fishing will be good. Dock lights attract insects, fish and fishermen! Since lights can be seen from great distances after dark, they are a sign that fish might be there. Probably the best fish sign of all is if you see an angler’s rod doubled over or hear the screech of the drag when a big fish is pulling line from the reel. Nothing draws an angler to a spot faster than another angler fighting a fish. If you don’t believe this, take a walk out on a fishing pier and notice the crowd gathered around the one who is reeling in a fish. A free 90-minute seminar titled “Learning to Use Your Depth Finder to Catch More Fish” is scheduled for Thursday from 6:30 - 8 p.m. at Gander Mountain in Mooresville, Exit 36 off Interstate 77. Lake Norman fishing guide Capt. Gus Gustafson and Jake Bussollini, author of “Freshwater Fighters,” will lead the discussion.

Ask Amy: Emotional affair not cool for school

Dear Betrayed: You should tell the school principal about this inappropriate relationship before the start of the new year. Even if the school doesn’t have a stated policy prohibiting relationships between a teacher and

the parent of a student, this shows terrible judgment on a multitude of levels — most importantly concerning your son. The school administrator should speak to this teacher about her actions, and your child should not be placed in any of her classes. Professionals who work with children hold an important trust. They have a responsibility to safeguard the child’s well-being. The teacher and your husband have destroyed her ability to work with your family. In terms of your husband, I suggest counseling and total transparency regarding any contact with her. (He should have none and should tell you if she contacts him.) You should notify her husband only if you feel doing so would benefit your marriage. Dear Amy: My 25-year-old daughter is living with my husband and me. During the past few years, while away at college, she gained about 40 pounds. She is only 5-foot-2, so that is a lot of extra weight on someone who used to be in perfect shape. She eats rapidly and chooses large quantities of fattening foods. People say I cannot say anything to her because it will make her feel that she is only loved when she is

perfect and will stress her into eating more. Why is it that if you suspect your child is on drugs or engaging in other dangerous habits it’s OK to intercede, but not if you see her eating toward obesity? Do I have to just watch her overeat until she has 100 pounds to lose instead of 40? (I am 60 and am very fit and healthy.) I am so worried about her that I cannot sleep most nights. I don’t know how to approach my daughter without putting her on the defensive. — Worried Mother Dear Worried: Any attempt you make to discuss this might put your daughter on the defensive — or the offensive. Understand this before you start. You can discuss weight with your daughter, but you should do so knowing that you can’t solve this problem for her. Sometimes, concern comes off as pressure, and a person with an eating disorder is very reactive to pressure. So you say, “Honey, I’m worried about you. Your eating seems out of control. I’d like to try to help, but first let’s talk about what’s going on with you.” Do not compare her to you — or to her formerly “perfect” self. The answer for your daughter might be more

complicated than diet and exercise. If she is bingeing her way into large weight gain, she may need clinical help. Dear Amy: A reader wondered what to do with a hideous gift of art from a friend. Because these people are very good friends, it is easy to imagine that the receiver of the gift had at some time praised her friend’s artwork. This was a time to be brutally frank. She could have praised the effort while making it clear that it was not her taste. This is also a cautionary tale. Be truthful or you, too, might end up with a horror in an expensive baroque

frame. — Avid Reader Dear Reader: Being frank without being “brutally frank” might also work. Send questions via e-mail to askamy@tribune.com or by mail to Ask Amy, Chica-

Dear Amy: My husband had an emotional affair with a teacher at my child’s school last year. They both lied to me repeatedly when I asked them to quit contacting each other, and the contact didn’t stop until school was ASK nearly over. AMY Being betrayed by two people whom I trusted has been extremely difficult. I think it’s finally over, but I’m quite paranoid about the new school year starting when they will see each other again almost daily.

Cheapskate: Recognize quality linens to find the best deals Years ago, a friend and I wandered into an upscale home furnishings store. Given my love for textiles, I was drawn to the bed linens department. Really, this was like sinking into the lap of luxury. I never had seen anything like the beautiful bed linens on display. Simply reaching MARY out and touchHUNT ing the beautifully made-up bed made me want to crawl in and take a nap. It’s difficult to describe just how lovely the sheets were. And they had a price tag to match, $400 for a fitted sheet and plenty more for its flat partner. Needless to say, I left that store empty-handed but determined to find out what made those sheets so much better than anything I ever had encountered. What I’ve learned is that bed linen knowledge is key: • The cotton. The cool, soft feel of high-quality bedsheets comes from 100 percent cotton. Cotton wicks away moisture, keeping you comfortable, not clammy. The softness you can find with highquality cotton is an addictive

luxury your skin will remember. Polyester may wear like iron and never need to be ironed, but your skin always will know the difference. Experts generally classify cottons into four main types based on appearance and staple length (extra-long, long, medium and short). The longer the staple the finer the fabric. Ninety percent of the world’s cotton crop is American upland cotton, which is not suited for “good” sheets. Egyptian cotton, however, is a long-staple variety. Growers in the U.S. have developed Egyptian varieties known as Pima cottons. These are preferable for sheets, both for their silky softness and their durability. • The thread count. This refers to the number of threads per square inch. The higher the thread count the finer the quality of the sheet. The highest count made in the U.S. is 310. European sheets can go much higher. “Highquality” sheets start at about a 200 thread count. Beware of double ply. Some manufacturers cheat by counting a twoply yarn twice in order to up the thread count. • The hand. This term, “hand,” refers to how the fabric feels. A sheet can be made of 100 percent cotton with a high thread count but feel

stiff and coarse against the skin. It all depends on the way the fabric is woven, who weaves it (Italians are known for being good weavers) and the finishing process — which can involve water, heat or chemicals, as well as the dyeing process. The only way to rate the “hand” of a sheet is to touch it. Finding bargains on great sheets requires knowledge and patience. Once you know your brands, terms and regular prices, you’ll be able to recognize great deals at walkin discount stores — such as T.J.Maxx, Marshalls, Costco and HomeGoods — and also online, at sites such as Overstock.com. But here’s a hint: Never order sheets online that cannot be returned should they not meet your full expectations.

Billionaire picks downtown LA site for art museum LOS ANGELES (AP) — Art museums in Los Angeles generally have pricey gift shops, haute fast-food cafeterias and billionaire Eli Broad’s name prominently etched on the list of supporters. Now the developer-turnedphilanthropist has plans for the first freestanding museum bearing his name, which will be built in an emerging downtown cultural district that also was formed largely with his backing. Broad on Monday announced his decision to build in Los Angeles, minutes after a committee of state and local officials voted to let him lease county-owned land along Grand Avenue for the structure that could cost as much as $100 million. The project is being cast as a boon to the ongoing cultural rebirth of downtown Los Angeles and has the support of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. The 35,000 square feet of gallery space would feature paintings, sculptures and photos from Broad’s 2,000-piece collection, which includes works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Salvador Dali and Joan Miro that are not currently on permanent public display. “There’s lots of art to go around,” Broad said after the vote by the Grand Avenue Au-

thority. “We want to show our art to the widest possible audience.” The Broad Art Foundation will also coordinate loans of artwork to other museums, among other activities, from the planned venue with a total of 120,000 square feet. Under the deal for the land for the new museum, the Broad Art Foundation will pay $7.7 million over the course of a 99year-lease for the 2.5-acre parcel that was originally set aside as part of a stalled $3 billion shopping, hotel and condo complex known as the Grand Avenue project. The deal also obliges 76year-old Broad, whose net worth was pegged this year by Forbes magazine at $5.7 billion, to finance construction of the museum and contribute $200 million toward its operation. Broad said the museum’s chief architect would be New York-based Diller, Scofidio & Renfro, which has designed the renovation and expansion of Lincoln Center in New York City and the new Institute of Contemporary Art on the Boston harbor. The design for the new Los Angeles venue will be unveiled in October, with construction possibly finished by the end of 2012, Broad said.

Broad had considered a site in Santa Monica, though he had spoken favorably about the downtown site beside the Walt Disney Concert Hall and across from the Museum of Contemporary Art, both of which he played a role in having built. He said he didn’t initially give serious consideration to the downtown location because it had been targeted for the Grand Avenue project. Broad said he started negotiating with project developer Related Cos. then launched the official approval process at the urging of Villaraigosa. “The museum will be an important cornerstone of the Grand Avenue project and play a pivotal role in the cultural and artistic renaissance currently under way,” the mayor said in a statement. Broad, who made his billions as co-founder of developer KB Home and through the sale of insurer SunAmerica, has already done much to advance the arts on Grand Avenue. He was founding chairman of the Arata Isozaki-designed Museum of Contemporary Art in 1979, one of the earliest cultural venues to join the Music Center performing arts complex among the high-rises coming to dominate Bunker Hill.

Squad budget needs a look he Rowan Rescue Squad’s request for more money raises questions about the amount of money needed and the direction of the Rescue Squad itself. The organization’s website lists more than a dozen personnel and boasts of 70 volunteers. It also shows an extensive array of rescue equipment. Anyone trapped in a crumpled car or stuck in some other life-threatening situation would be very happy the Rescue Squad is well-equipped. But heavy equipment often comes with a heavy price tag. There was a day in Rowan County when a funeral home ran the ambulance service and “rescue squad” was an unfamiliar term. Just as the county’s Emergency Medical Services have become more sophisticated and complex, the Rescue Squad has grown, too. Citizens started the Rescue Squad after a 1951 drowning highlighted the need. Seventeen-year-old Bill Barnes went under while trying to swim across the American Quarry in Granite Quarry. It took 10 days to locate the body. Then and there, Sheriff Arthur Shuping and others raised $1,103 to establish the Rescue Squad Nearly 60 years later, you probably couldn’t pay the light bill for the Rescue Squad’s buildings with $1,103. The budget has gone up, up, up, taking the most dramatic leap in 200607. The Rescue Squad was getting $196,000 annually from the county and asked for a $597,000 increase. At least part of the problem was paying for new equipment. Commissioners suggested the squad consult with the county before committing itself to big-ticket items and then OK’d a $118,000 increase. Soon the county’s contribution went up again. In a nonbinding vote in May 2008, commissioners supported then-Chairman Arnold Chamberlain’s proposal to dedicate just over three-tenths of a cent from county property tax collections to the Rescue Squad, which amounted to $337,000 for the following fiscal year. The allocation has been in the $400,000 range since then. Keep in mind, the Rescue Squad is a nonprofit agency, not a county department. The taxpayers’ bill would be much higher if that were the case. In addition to county money, the Rescue Squad has an annual fundraiser, a portrait drive, and is part of United Way. It also has received grants here and there — $6,000 from the Robertson Foundation for a commercial grade washer to handle protective gear, $5,000 from the Salisbury Community Foundation for vehicle extraction equipment, and another $10,000 for a high-tech electrocardiogram monitor/defibrillator. Now the Rescue Squad has requested a $68,000 increase. The squad has been helping the EMS cover the southern and eastern parts of the county, cutting emergency response time by an impressive two minutes. But the volume of calls has fallen below what the agency expected, hence the $68,000 shortfall. The Rescue Squad has become an essential part of the county’s emergency response system and seems more quasi-governmental than nonprofit. Commissioners are duty-bound to give this latest request serious consideration, but that consideration will have to include a close look at the agency’s books. No one is accusing the squad of anything, but the trend in its budget requests raises questions, and the county deserves answers. As President Reagan liked to say, trust but verify.

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought.” — Buddha

Get tough, governor Right on refund issue, Perdue should keep pushing ALEIGH — After the Raleigh News & Observer reported that changes in law and policy may have allowed the state of North Carolina to keep taxpayers’ money to which it was not entitled, Gov. Beverly Perdue did the right thing. She was “incensed,” according to her press office, that some North Carolinians who had mistakenly overpaid their taxes were being penalized by a process that seemed rigged in favor of the state. The Perdue administration has now assigned 80 people to work JOHN through the HOOD state’s backlog of flagged taxpayer files, authorizing a refund when appropriate regardless of whether the case falls within the three-year statute of limitations. Good for the governor. But I think she ought to go further. I don’t think the state’s flawed process for reviewing tax files was simply an accidental oversight. I think it was designed to maximize revenue to the state. You can call the strategy “aggressive cash-flow management” if you want to be diplomatic. If you’re inclined towards blunt cynicism, the term “mildly larcenous” might be a better fit. North Carolina’s incometax returns have long been reviewed by computers programmed to flag mistakes. Until recently, it was the policy of the Department of Revenue to consider a possible mistake to have been discovered when the computer flagged it, even though it would typically still be necessary for an employee to review the file before notifying the taxpayer of the error and

arranging for a refund. But in 2009, the department’s policy changed. Now, it would consider a possible mistake to have been discovered only when an employee reviewed and assessed the file. What’s the difference? Keep in mind that there is a statute of limitations. If tax-

How could taxpayers submit a timely request unless the department informed them of a possible problem? And what happened if the department failed to review a flagged file before the three-year window was up? The taxpayer was out of luck. Revenue officials denied that their change of policy was designed to increase how long the state held on to overpaid taxes. But the News & Observer obtained e-mail correspondence within the department that suggested at least some employees considered the policy change unfair and potentially abusive. One was Nancy Pomeranz, director of the personal taxes division. “My folks were told not to process any refunds in any situation where the statute has run now because no refund is ‘discovered’ until someone actually looks at it or handles it,” Pomeranz wrote in an October e-mail. “I do not agree and, as

LETTERS Scout testimonial: Learn and have fun

TO THE

I mentioned in my earlier email, this is contrary to our long-standing position.” Pomeranz went on to say that in her opinion the policy would harm some taxpayers who were owed refunds. Still, the higher-ups at the Department of Revenue didn’t budge. It took a newspaper expose several months later to force a change. I’m not going to deny that many flawed public policies persist not because of bad faith but simply because of inertia. In this case, however, Revenue officials seemed to have dismissed internal concerns about a policy that, at the very least, would be difficult to defend if made public — which it was. Consider the context here. North Carolina’s state government had been under fiscal stress for several years. Fearing the worst, policymakers had given the Department of Revenue new tools to go after what the state considered to be tax underpayments, from both individual and corporate filers. The result was hundreds of millions of dollars in increased revenue collections, money that legislators and administration officials were delighted to receive. They hoped for more. Is it really so difficult to believe that, given the pressure to maximize state revenue during a budget crunch, some Revenue officials thought it expedient to change the policy on overpayments in ways that would let the state hold on to taxpayers’ money longer, if not permanently? Gov. Perdue needs to ask some tough questions of Revenue Secretary Ken Lay and his subordinates. • • • Hood is president of the John Locke Foundation and publisher of CarolinaJournal. com.

Is the death penalty “obsolete in North Carolina”? It might be, says Jim Woodall, district attorney for Orange and Chatham Counties, reacting to the news that inaccurate reports from the State Bureau of Investigation’s crime lab may have been used by prosecutors to obtain guilty verdicts in capital cases. According to news reports, Woodall believes “the state should place a moratorium on executions.” The revival of the debate D.G. on the death MARTIN penalty is just one of the many fallouts from the News & Observer’s expose and the outside review of SBI procedures that it prompted. Prosecutors and courts are reeling as they face an expensive and time-consuming process of review and retrial of cases where the tainted testimony from the SBI lab results helped convict defendants, possibly affected the sentence, or was a factor in a plea bargain agreement. Even more disquieting is the realization that their use of misleading SBI evidence might have led to the execution of an innocent accused. Citizens serving on juries are going to be more skeptical of the prosecution’s expert witnesses. It is going to be much harder to prove guilt based on the conclusions of forensic experts on the state’s payroll. That skepticism will, at least to a degree, carry over to all the state’s witnesses in criminal cases. It is a matter of trust. And the trust factor is broken, at least for a while. How do you rebuild that trust? Some people, including Sen. Marc Basnight, may favor making the crime lab independent of the SBI. But prosecutors will be wary of this suggestion. While they certainly want the crime lab procedures and reports to be accurate, they also want witnesses who will help them by testifying with confidence and certainty. Witnesses from an independent lab are not going to be nearly as coachable as those from an affiliated lab. Coincidentally, this week new UNC-Chapel Hill students discussed a book that showed how eyewitness testimony delivered with confidence and certainty led to the conviction and imprisonment of an innocent accused. The book is “Picking Cotton: Our Memoir of Injustice and Redemption” by Jennifer Thompson-Cannino and Ronald Cotton (with Erin Torneo). Thompson-Cannino was the victim of a brutal rape. In a lineup she identified Cotton as the rapist. When she testified in court, she had no doubt and her confident testimony led to Cotton’s conviction in 1985. Cotton remained in prison for more than 10 years. In 1995, DNA evidence proved that another man, not Cotton, had raped Thompson-Cannino. In “Picking Cotton,” Thompson-Cannino tells how she came to her certainty about Cotton’s guilt — and stuck to it until the DNA evidence forced her to admit she might have been wrong. “Picking Cotton” should remind us (if the SBI mess had not) that our justice system is not perfect, and that all of us must take responsibility for its failings. Thankfully there is another, more hopeful, message in “Picking Cotton.” ThompsonCannino and Cotton, and their families, have become friends and colleagues, as well as co-authors of their powerful book. Instead of allowing the brutal rape and the long-term incarceration ruin their lives, they have developed a mutual trust and respect that could be a powerful example for the rest of us…as we work to repair the damage the SBI crime lab has done and to rebuild the trust its actions destroyed. • • • Martin hosts UNC-TV’s “North Carolina Bookwatch.”

US commander: Afghanistan more than a year away from building a good-sized security force

OAK BLUFFS, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama and his wife are dining out for the first time since beginning a vacation on Martha’s Vineyard. The Obamas sat down to dinner Monday night at The Sweet Life, a restaurant where they dined last August in their first summer on the island off Cape Cod. Since beginning this year’s planned 10-day vacation last Thursday, the president has mostly kept out of sight — only leaving his rented compound for golf outings, basketball, a beach picnic and a visit to a bookstore. Except for the bookstore visit, the outings have all been private.

No more than 2 egg farms involved in salmonella outbreak

Jury convicts man of stealing trucker’s identity

WASHINGTON (AP) — Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Margaret Hamburg says there is no evidence that there are additional farms involved in a massive recall of more than half a billion eggs. Officials also said Monday they do not expect the number of eggs recalled to grow based on what they know now. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it has not identified additional clusters of illness that would indicate the outbreak has spread beyond two Iowa farms. Also Monday, the House Energy and Commerce Committee said it is investigating the outbreak and sent letters to both farms asking for detailed information about company operations, communications with the government and what they knew when.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Trucker Earl Robert Hood says he didn’t know his identity had been stolen until his commercial driver’s license was suspended for four DUIs he never committed. Hood traveled from his home in Illinois to Wheatland, Wyo., to testify against 47year-old Danny Arnold Rodgers, who was convicted last week of stealing Hood’s identity. Prosecutors say Rodgers racked up four drunken-driving arrests in July 2008 under Hood’s name. Hood says he had given Rodgers a copy of his driver’s license and other information when Rodgers asked him to drive for a trucking company. Hood now warns other drivers to make sure they give information only to companies they know are legitimate.

Judge temporarily blocks stem cell regulations

AK man gets 8 years in prison for alleged hit list

WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal judge on Monday temporarily blocked Obama administration regulations expanding stem cell research. The nonprofit group Nightlight Christian Adoptions contends that the government’s new guidelines will decrease the number LAMBERTH of human embryos available for adoption. U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth ruled that the plaintiffs are entitled to bring their lawsuit in the courts. A federal appeals court had ruled that two doctors who were among those bringing the lawsuit, adult stem cell researchers James Sherley of the Boston Biomedical Research Institute and Theresa Deisher of AVM Biotechnlogy, had the authority to do so, prompting Lamberth to reverse a decision he made last October. Lamberth said that the injury of increased competition that Sherley and Deisher would face because of the guidelines “is not speculative. It is actual and imminent. Indeed, the guidelines threaten the very livelihood of plaintiffs Sherley and Deisher.�

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A man from a remote Alaska community who was accused of compiling a hit list of targets he believed were enemies of Islam was sentenced Monday to eight years in prison. Paul Rockwood Jr., along with his wife, Nadia, faced counts of lying to FBI agents when questioned about the list of 20 targets in May. They pleaded guilty to domestic terrorism charges last month, the first time such charges were brought in Alaska under the Patriot Act. It was enacted after the Sept. 11 terrorism attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The length of Rockwood’s sentence was the maximum penalty for the crime. His 36year-old wife, who holds dual citizenship in the U.S. and United Kingdom, was sentenced to five years probation. She will be allowed to return to her native country and take care of the couple’s 4year-old child. Authorities said Paul Rockwood, 35, of King Salmon, converted to Islam about a decade ago and followed the teachings of a cleric who supports acts of terrorism and espouses hatred for the United States. The alleged hit list include members of the military and media.

Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper said Monday that Ronald Perea resigned as the city’s manager of safety. Perea will step down Aug. 31. Hispanics and AfricanAmericans called on Perea to resign or fire the officers. The city’s independent police monitor has said the officers should have been fired for trying to cover up what happened. The video showed the officers striking a man talking on his cell phone as he watched his friend’s arrest. The police department recently opened an internal investigation, after which the FBI said it would continue with its own probe.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A senior U.S. commander on Monday wouldn’t predict when Afghanistan might take control of its own security and warned that NATO needs at least another year to recruit and train enough soldiers and police officers. The assessment by Lt. Gen. Bill Caldwell, the head of NATO’s training mission in Afghanistan, further dims U.S. hopes that the planned U.S. withdrawal next year will be significant in size. President Barack Obama has said that troops will begin pulling out in July 2011, the size and pace of withdrawal depending on security conditions. Defense officials, including Defense Secretary Robert Gates, have said they believe next summer’s pullout would be modest. In a Pentagon briefing, Caldwell told reporters that Afghan army and police forces won’t reach sufficient numbers until Oct. 31, 2011 — three months after Obama’s deadline to start U.S. withdrawals. NATO has set the goal of creating an Afghan military and police force of 305,600 personnel — 171,600 army and 134,000 police.

WORLD

Mayhem in Manila: 9 killed on hijacked tourist bus MANILA, Philippines (AP) — It looked like a hostage rescue in slow motion: Police creeping up on the bus with sledgehammers and smashing first one window, then another, then trying and failing to rip open the door. When they finally got inside, authorities said, they found nine bodies: eight Hong Kong tourists and the ex-policeman who had seized the bus to demand his job back. The bloody denouement to the 12-hour drama in the heart of the Philippine capital, witnessed live on TV, rattled a country already accustomed to kidnappings and violence blamed on Muslim rebels. It provoked demands from the Hong Kong government for an explanation, and an acknowledgment from Philippine President Benigno Aquino III that his police need more training and equipment. It was 10:15 a.m. Monday in Manila when Rolando Mendoza, 55 and married with three children, hitched a ride with the tourists as they visited historic sites in the city. He wore a camouflage uniform and carried an M16 rifle but didn’t seem unusual in the heavily policed capital. Then he announced that he was taking the travelers hostage to win back his job.

According to newspaper reports, the former senior inspector was among five officers who had been charged with robbery, extortion and grave threats after a Manila hotel chef filed a complaint alleging they falsely accused him of using drugs to extort money. Mendoza was fired last year but claimed he was innocent. With the bus parked on a Manila park parade ground, Mendoza stuck leaflets on windows, handwritten in English, saying “big mistake to correct a big wrong decision,” demanding media attention and threatening “big deal will start after 3 p.m. today.” At first, matters proceeded peacefully. The hijacker freed nine hostages — three women, three children and two men — leaving 15 tourists on board. Police sealed the area and brought food for the hostages, along with fuel to keep the bus’ air conditioning running in the 32-degree-Celsius (90 F) heat. Then negotiations began to go awry. Mendoza demanded a signed promise that his case would be reviewed, but its delivery was delayed for hours, in part by Manila’s notorious traffic, and when it finally arrived he rejected it as insufficient. The hijacker’s brother

Gregorio, a policeman, was flown in to talk to him through the driver’s window but grew so agitated in claiming Mendoza had been unfairly sacked that police hustled him away, fearing he would inflame the situation. That apparently angered Mendoza into firing a warning shot. Police made an initial attempt to board the bus, and the hijacker shot and wounded a police sharpshooter, said Nelson Yabut, head of the assault team. Single shots, then a burst of automatic fire, echoed through the night. The Filipino bus driver managed to escape and, according to police officer Roderick Mariano, reported that Mendoza had fired at the tourists. A freed hostage who gave only her surname, Ng, told Hong Kong reporters that she saw her husband killed by Mendoza after he tried to take him on. “He was very brave. He rushed forward from the back of the bus. He wanted to prevent the gunman from killing people. He sacrificed himself,” she said. Yabut, the assault commander, said that “when he started shooting the hostages, that’s the time I gave the signal to my sniper to shoot when there is a clear

Shortly before 9 p.m., police lobbed tear gas into the bus and commandos approached the vehicle, crouching beside it and ready to storm it. They smashed windows and the back door with sledgehammers. Once inside,

they found only the dead, one of them slumped on the bus steps. The Hong Kong government did not hide its displeasure at the handling of the incident. It issued a warning against travel to the Philippines, canceled planned tour groups to the islands and

asked Hong Kong tourists still in the country to leave. The bloodbath happened in front of a grandstand where Aquino had been sworn in as president on June 30. After midnight he was back there, staring at the bloodstained, bullet-riddled bus.

Supplies reach trapped Chilean miners; now, the long wait COPIAPO, Chile (AP) — Trapped nearly half a mile inside the earth and facing perhaps four months before rescue, 33 Chilean miners began accepting food, water and oxygen from above ground Monday as rescue teams worked to gauge their state of mind and brace them for the long wait ahead. Through a newly installed communications system, each of the men spoke and reported feeling hungry but well, except for one with a stomach problem, a Chilean official said. They requested toothbrushes. It was a positive sign, and Chile’s president said the nation was “crying with excitement and joy” after engineers broke through Sunday to the men’s refuge. It had been 17 days since a landslide at the gold and copper mine caused a tunnel to collapse and entombed them more than 2,200 feet below ground. Still, doctors and psychological experts were trying to safeguard the very sanity of the miners in the months to come, and said they were implementing a plan that included keeping them informed and busy. The miners reported that a shift foreman named Luis Urzua had assumed leadership of the trapped men. “They need to understand what we know up here at the surface, that it will take many weeks for them to reach the light,” Health Minister Jaime Manalich explained. Engineers worked to reinforce the 6-inch-wide bore hole that broke through to the refuge, using a long hose to coat its walls with a metallic gel to decrease the risk of rock falling and blocking the hard-won passage through the unstable mine. The lubricant makes it easier to pass supplies through in capsules nicknamed “palomas,” Spanish for dove. The first of the packages, which are about 5 feet long and take about an hour to descend from the surface, held rehydration tablets and a high-energy glucose gel to help the miners begin to recover their digestive systems. Rescue teams also sent oxygen down after the miners suggested there was not enough air in the stretches of the mine that run below where the main shaft collapsed. The shelter, a living-roomsized chamber off one of the mine’s lower passages that is easily big enough for all 33 men, is far enough from the landslide to remain intact, and the men can also walk around below where the rocks fell. Actual food will be sent down in several days, after the men’s stomachs have had time to adjust, said Paola Neuman of the medical rescue service. Rescuers also sent down questionnaires to determine each man’s condition, along with medicine and small mi-

ers heard them. The eighth attempt finally worked. Gomez wrote that the miners used vehicles for light and a backhoe to dig a channel to retrieve underground water. And while his message focused on faith and love for his family, his frustration also showed through. He wrote that “this company has got to modernize.” Chile is the world’s top copper producer and a leading gold producer, and has some of the world’s most advanced mining operations. But both

the company that owns the mine, San Esteban, and the National Mining and Geology Service have been criticized for allegedly failing to comply with regulations. In 2007, an explosion at the San Jose mine killed three workers. President Sebastian Pinera said Monday that “there is not going to be any impunity” and said investigations were under way. Shortly after the accident, Pinera fired two top executives of Sernageomin, Chile’s mine safety regulator, after

reports that the mine had reopened too soon, and without real security improvements, after a fatal accident three years before. Pinera has also asked a commission for proposals to increase worker safety in Chile. The miners’ relatives are suing and claim their loved ones were put at risk working in a mine known for unstable shafts and rock falls. Company executives have denied the accusations and say the lawsuits could force them into bankruptcy.

Carlos Araya places the image of San Expedito, Saint Expeditus, with the name of a relative, one of the 33 miners trapped at the collapsed mine San Jose in Copiapo, Chile on Monday. crophones to enable them to speak with their families during their long wait. Rescue leader Andre Sougarret said they were organizing the families into small groups to make their talks as orderly as possible. Meanwhile, an enormous machine with diamond-tipped drills capable of carving a 26inch-wide tunnel through solid rock and boring at about 65 feet a day was on its way from central Chile to the San Jose gold and copper mine, outside Copiapo in north-central Chile. The machine was donated by the state-owned Codelco copper company and carried on a truck festooned with Chilean flags. Just setting it up will take at least three more days. Engineers were also boring two more narrow shafts to the trapped men, but stopped Monday just above their refuge while they made sure that the lifeline was fully secure. Only when these three shafts are complete will they begin carving out the tunnel large enough to fit a man, Mining Minister Laurence Golborne said. “We cannot be 100 percent precise, but the idea is to establish three or four points of contact so that we can guarantee better life conditions to our comrades down there,” he said. Besides their immediate physical needs such as medicine to restore their raw stomachs and sleep cycles, the rescuers were preparing psychiatric counseling. A first step was the questionnaires, which were also intended to help identify their natural leader — someone who can make sure the men are keeping busy and mentally focused. Above ground, rescuers and family members thought that might be Mario Gomez, who at 63 is perhaps the oldest of the veteran miners down below. Gomez’s letter to his wife, Liliana, which the miners tied to the drill bit, was full of expressions of faith and determination, revealing to the world that the miners were holding strong. “Even if we have to wait

months to communicate ... I want to tell everyone that I’m good and we’ll surely come out OK,” Gomez wrote, scrawling the words on a sheet of notebook paper. “Patience and faith. God is great and the help of my God is going to make it possible to leave this mine alive.” But Urzua, 54, was the shift foreman at the time of the collapse, and Golborne said Monday that “it seems the miners respect hierarchies.” For the miners’ families, euphoria and anxiety made for a sleepless night. They shivered through the cold and fog in Chile’s Atacama desert. “We stayed up all night long hoping for more news. They said that new images would appear, so we were up hoping to see them,” said one, Carolina Godoy. The men already have been trapped underground longer than all but a few miners rescued in recent history. Last year, three miners survived 25 days trapped in a flooded mine in southern China, and two miners in northeastern China were rescued after 23 days in 1983. Few other rescues have taken more than two weeks. The miners’ survival after 17 days is very unusual, but since they’ve made it this far, they should emerge physically fine, said Davitt McAteer, who was assistant secretary for mine safety and health at the U.S. Labor Department under President Bill Clinton. “The health risks in a copper and gold mine are pretty small if you have air, food and water,” McAteer said. Mine officials and relatives of the workers were determined not to give up hope that the men were safe below where the tunnel collapsed Aug. 5 at the mine, about 530 miles north of Santiago, the capital. Rescuers had drilled repeatedly in an effort to reach the shelter, but failed seven times. They blamed the errors on the mining company’s maps. According to Gomez’s note, at least some of those earlier probes were close enough that the trapped min-

CHARLOTTE — Elliott Sadler does a great job shilling for his sponsors, and he’s a natural in front of cameras. When his days as a NASCAR driver are over, the 13-year veteran probably is headed toward a healthy second career in television. He just isn’t ready to hang up his helmet yet. The future is uncertain for one of NASCAR’s most likable drivers. He’s in the midst of his sixth consecutive winless season, and his prospects of landing a solid ride in the Sprint Cup Series are fading with each week. Richard Petty Motorsports last week said Stanley, which currently sponsors Sadler, would move to Marcos Ambrose’s car when he joins the organization next year, and the team has given no indication it’s planning to bring Sadler back in 2011. So, when he pulled in last week to Bristol Motor Speedway, where he earned his first career Cup win in 2001, he

couldn’t stave off the emotions that come with so much uncertainty. “I told my wife, ‘This might be the SADLER last Bristol night race I ever race in,’ ” he recounted. “That’s hard to swallow.” It may not be totally over for Sadler, though. He’s shown new life outside of his Cup car and has proved throughout the industry that he’s still got something left in his tank when given the right opportunity. It came from Kevin and DeLana Harvick, who offered Sadler some seat time in their truck and Nationwide Series rides. Sadler won his first NASCAR race since 2004 when he drove a Kevin Harvick Inc.-owned truck to a win last month at Pocono, and in nine races between the two series, he has five top-10s and 132 laps led.

New York Mets reliever Bobby Parnell has fired the fastest pitch in Major League Baseball this season.

Carolina defense excelling

New York Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey struck out Geoff Blum with a 62-mph pitch against the Houston Astros last Wednesday. Mets reliever Bobby Parnell, an East Rowan High School graduate, turned up the heat in Houston’s Minute Maid Park later that evening. Parnell recorded the fastest pitch in the majors this season when, according to the PitchFX system, he hit 102.5 mph while facing Chris Johnson in the 11th inning. Parnell fanned three batters in two perfect frames and reached 100 mph 10 times for New York, which won 3-2 in 14 innings. “I know I’m throwing good, and I feel like I can let loose,” Parnell told MLB.com. “You just try to ride the wave.” Parnell, who couldn’t be reached by the Post for comment, has a 3.24 ERA with 26 strikeouts in 27 games for the

Mets. He has 23 scoreless appearances, and his ERA was at 0.96 in late July before two rough outings inflated the number. New York has used Hisanori Takahashi as its closer since placing Francisco Rodriguez on the disqualified list, but Parnell could also get the chance to finish games. He pitched a perfect ninth inning and hit 100 mph with one fastball in a 7-2 victory against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday. “You want to see a Parnell be a closer in this organization,” Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen told The StarLedger of Newark (N.J.).

PREP FOOTBALL

BY MIKE CRANSTON Associated Press

CHARLOTTE — The Carolina Panthers can’t move the ball, and it seems nobody can cleanly field a punt. Thank goodness for the defense. No, really. The unit that lost five-time Pro Bowl defensive end Julius Peppers in free agency, saw both starting defensive tackles released, the strongside linebacker cut, the strong safety traded and the weakside linebacker blow out his knee has been the lone bright spot in two preseason games. BEASON “Everyone has gone out there and played well and done their jobs,” linebacker Jon Beason said Monday. “The key is we’re just playing fast and guys aren’t making mistakes.” Despite being handicapped by two interceptions, two fumbled punts and another special teams turnover that had the New York Jets starting four drives in Carolina territory Saturday night, the defense allowed only three field goals and 112 yards in the Jets’ 9-3 win. The Panthers gave up just 225 yards and had six sacks in a 17-12 loss to Baltimore a week earlier. “You really don’t know how good you are until you put yourself against an opponent in a game,” said defensive end Everette Brown, who had two of Carolina’s five sacks against New York. “We know we have to prove ourselves. It’s not going to be one of those things where teams lay down just because we show up.” While the defense added team speed, it lost experience and added guys only die-hard fans would know. When asked if he was surprised at how quickly it’s come together, the two-time Pro Bowl pick Beason quickly replied, “Absolutely.” “There’s so many new faces, you don’t have much chemistry,” he added. “But I think we’re developing that.” Beason is adjusting to a new position. He was shifted to weakside linebacker from the middle after Thomas Davis tore a knee ligament in June.

Tech the Noble choice West senior picks Yellow Jackets over Penn State BY MIKE LONDON mlondon@salisburypost.com

MOUNT ULLA — West Rowan’s football team concluded Monday’s spirited practice with a group huddle and a shout-out to senior cornerback Domonique Noble. Noble is a football butterfly. He morphed from a sophomore who often got his first name spelled wrong into a national recruiting target. “Congratulations to our very own Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket,” coach Scott Young roared to his team before Falcons applauded, cheered

and slapped Noble on the back. Noble verbally committed to Georgia Tech a few hours before practice. N.C. State called minutes after Noble made his final decision, so the NOBLE Wolfpack was the first to hear the bad news from Young. “Domonique put himself in a great situation where he couldn’t go wrong with any of the schools that were recruiting him,” Young said. “The decision was his and his family’s, and

it’s the right fit. (Coach) Paul Johnson has won everywhere he’s been. Georgia Tech plays in bowl games every year. Domonique’s getting ACC football and very high-level YOUNG academics.” Noble’s commitment resolves a recruiting struggle that attracted Penn State, Notre Dame, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the ACC’s Big Four. Noble had solid offers from two dozen programs.

“What sold me on Georgia Tech is that the academics are great and the coaches are solid,” Noble said. “They win games, and I’ve gotten used to winning.” For Noble, mentioning academics is more than lip service. He owns a 3.7 GPA while taking honors courses. His post-football aspirations include a career as a nuclear engineer. Noble’s final-four list of potential destinations included Penn State, Wake Forest and Virginia, where he would’ve been reunited with K.P. Parks.

Salisbury’s boys soccer team beat West Rowan 7-1 in a nonconSalisbury 7 ference game played W. Rowan 1 Monday in Mount Ulla. The teams will meet for the county championship at East Rowan on Sept. 9. “West is very fast and skilled,” Salisbury coach Tom Sexton said. “We had 27 players over there and they had about 14, and we outlegged them.” “The assists are coming from all over,” Sexton said. “We’ve got about eight forwards and eight midfielders that we can

keep running in and out. That can really save our legs. We have a lot of depth.” Marco Mejia scored the first-half goals for the Hornets (2-0) on crosses by Emmy Turcios and Gerardo Sosa. CERVANTES Matt Cervantes chipped in a shot over the West keeper after an assist by Michael Mazur to make it 3-0, and Cervantes found Kenne Bonilla to extend the lead. John Romero scored on an assist by Turcios to make it 5-0.

Brown, Jordan reunited with Bobcats BY MIKE CRANSTON Associated Press

CHARLOTTE — The draft decision helped define both men in harsh terms: Michael Jordan was a failed executive, Kwame Brown a bust as a player. Now, nine years after Jordan took Brown with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, they’re reuniting in hopes of shedding both labels. The Jordan-owned Charlotte Bobcats on Monday came to terms with Brown on a one-year deal for the veteran minimum of $1.3 million. Agent Mark Bartelstein said Brown will sign on Tuesday. “A really interesting story,” Bartelstein said. “Instead of running away from the shadow of Michael Jordan, he kind of embraced it.”

While the Bobcats need help in the middle after trading Tyson Chandler to Dallas last month, Brown would seemingly be the last center Jordan would turn to as he begins his first full season as majority owner. Jordan was running the Washington Wizards in 2001 when he took the 6-foot-11 Brown straight out of high school with the first pick. The Georgia teenager wasn’t ready for the NBA, and Jordan was labeled as another superstar player unfit to run a team. Jordan was fired from the Wizards in 2003, shortly after a comeback as a player. The Hall of Famer returned to the NBA three years later as part-owner of the Bobcats with the final say on basketball decisions. Jordan bought the team outright in the spring.

The 28-year-old Brown has bounced around the league with little success. He averaged 3.3 points and 3.7 rebounds in 48 games with Detroit last season. He’s averaged 6.7 points and 5.4 rebounds with four teams over nine seasons, including two stints with the Los Angeles Lakers. Jordan couldn’t be reached on Monday, and Bobcats general manager Rod Higgins didn’t immediately return a message seeking comment. Bartelstein said his client was intrigued about playing for Charlotte coach Larry Brown because he has a “great history of teaching and developing players.” Larry Brown, who led the Bobcats to their first playoff berth last season, has always been intrigued with long, athletic shot-blockers who can play multiple positions.

It may be Kwame Brown’s last chance to show just that. “We felt this was a critical year for him to kind of rebuild his career,” Bartelstein said. “He had a couple tough years. There were a lot of expectations and things didn’t go exactly the way he had hoped. So now it was about making a really good choice. “There has been so much criticism in the past about him and Michael and the way it didn’t work out the first time in Washington. I think that was a really a challenge for Kwame, to come back and turn that around.” The move comes as the Bobcats still have to make a decision with center Erick Dampier, acquired in the deal for Chandler. Dampier has a nonguaranteed contract worth $13 million next season.

Spurrier suspends Saunders indefinitely Associated Press

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Weslye Saunders’ future at South Carolina is unclear after the tight end was suspended by coach Steve Spurrier on Monday. Spurrier said Saunders would be held out indefinitely for violating team rules — and not for any potential findings from this summer’s continuing NCAA inquiry centered around the 6-foot-6 senior. Saunders was questioned by NCAA investigators looking into possible rules violations at a party in Miami in May. Spurrier has said Saun-

ders told the coach he’d done nothing wrong. Saunders also was among several players Spurrier told to leave a local hotel and find other living arrangements. “I said suspended for violation of team rules. Team rules have nothing to do with the NCAA,” Spurrier said. Saunders has not spoken publicly this summer. Spurrier said on his radio call-in show last week that he expected the NCAA to have a ruling about the tight end’s eligibility before the Gamecocks open the season against Southern Miss on Sept. 2.  BOSTON — Boston Col-

lege wide receiver Colin Larmond Jr. will miss the season with a knee injury.

COLLEGE HOOPS LINCOLN, Neb. — Point guard Bo Spencer is transferring to Nebraska after having been declared academically ineligible at LSU.  MINNEAPOLIS — Trevor Mbakwe has returned to practice for the Minnesota basketball team for the first time since he was sidelined by an assault accusation. Mbakwe missed last season because of a felony assault charge stemming from an alleged incident while he was at

TENNIS NEW YORK — Seeking to complete the career Grand Slam, Rafael Nadal will be the top-seeded man when the U.S. Open starts next week, while Roger Federer will come to Flushing Meadows seeded second. Missing from New York will be defending men’s champion Juan Martin del Potro, who remains sidelined with a lingering wrist injury. At No. 9, Andy Roddick is the highest seeded American man.

Georgia Tech defenders adjusting to 3-4 scheme Associated Press

ATLANTA — Senior inside linebacker Brad Jefferson is the leader of the Georgia Tech defense. That may not seem like much of a distinction after the unit’s shaky performance last season. The Yellow Jackets won the 2009 ACC title and went 11-3 despite allowing more than 360 yards per game. The team’s high-powered offense made 67 plays of at least 20 yards, but the defense gave up 66. Former Virginia coach Al Groh was brought in as defensive coordinator to help fix things. Groh installed his 3-4 defense during the spring. Now it is up to the Georgia Tech players to make it work. “You know what I’ve found through the years? If you’re not

very good, it’s somebody else’s fault,” Yellow Jackets coach Paul Johnson said. “It’s exciting any time you change, but show me. That’s all we’ve got to do is show me.” Jefferson is confident that the defense will do just that. “We can be a lot better,” said Jefferson, who led the team with 95 tackles a year ago and was second on the team with eight of them for losses. “I’m sure of that. I think the 3-4 fits us, but we can’t count on just that. It’s on all of us to step up and play better. I know we can.” The Yellow Jackets open the season on Sept. 4 against South Carolina State, then play at Kansas before beginning ACC action at North Carolina on Sept. 18. “Coach Groh has brought so much energy to us,” Jefferson said. “He’s

a great teacher, and he really gets us flying around out there.” Defensive end Derrick Morgan and safety Morgan Burnett left a year early for the NFL, GROH leaving a couple of holes. But the Georgia Tech defense has plenty of experience and a renewed commitment. “I have high expectations for myself and the team,” said Jefferson, a graduate of Johnson County High School in Wrightsville. “Every team in America loses key players. We’re not dwelling in the past. It’s a new season and a new team. We’re just thinking about this year and how to be better.”

The 244-pound Jefferson will call out the defensive signals for the Yellow Jackets, making him a key in the transition from the team’s former four-man front. “Brad is a football guy,” Groh said. “A lot of the stuff that we have installed has come to him easily and he is a physically rugged player who brings a high energy level. “Leadership is about attitude and actions, not speeches. His actions put him in a position to set standards and that is a prime function of leaders. He sets the standards for toughness and effort and energy that hopefully will raise the whole defense.” Not giving up so many long gains is the key to Georgia Tech’s defensive improvement. “The elimination of big plays is

right there on the top of the list of things that we have to get accomplished,” Groh said. Johnson replaced former coordinator Dave Womack and made changes in his defensive staff. But the real responsibility belongs with the players, Johnson said. “Sometimes you have to look within,” Johnson said. “Sometimes you’ve just got to rush the passer and you’ve got to cover people and you’ve got to tackle people. “There is no magic scheme where they can hide somebody. If you’re getting your tail blocked six yards down the field, then you’re getting blocked six yards down the field. Nobody can help you there. You’ve got to man up and whip somebody’s tail occasionally.”

More than the score JOn C. LaKey/SALISBURY POST

Domonique Noble (20) stands with his teammates and coaches after West Rowan beat Eastern Alamance last season.

NOBLE FROM 1B “There was a whole lot of love from those schools,” Noble said. Penn State made the cut for the final two because, like Georgia Tech, it has a nuclear engineering program. There probably aren’t many Nittany Lion players enrolled in that major, but Noble isn’t an ordinary student. He’s sharp enough to excel in courses with unpronounceable names. As a sophomore, Noble had an interception in the 3A state championship game while operating against West Craven’s prolific passing combination of Shrine Bowl QB Brett Mooring and current UNC receiver Erik Highsmith. Noble’s profile began its meteoric rise shortly after he posted two of his six picks as a junior in a 2009 state championship game victory against Eastern Alamance “We’ve had great defensive lineman, and that gave us an opportunity to make plays in the secondary,” Noble said. “After that game, Wake Forest, N.C. State and some others got psyched about me.” Last spring, football coaches from Wisconsin, Arkansas (where former West defensive end Chris Smith is now enrolled) and Penn State were stuffed into the cozy West gym

watching Noble play basketball. He’s not a shooter, but he threw down eyepopping baseline dunks. Those coaches were there to evaluate his athleticism, not his jumper, and they decided Nobel was a prize. Noble is calm and reserved, but he brings excitement to a gym or football field. He’s a physical specimen for a cornerback at 6foot-2, 190 pounds, and he runs 4.6 40s. He can move and he can hit, so he could continue as a physical corner or evolve into a fast safety. “Domonique is just terribly, terribly gifted,” West defensive coordinator David Hunt said. “He’s special because of how long he is, and he’s learning how to use that length to get leverage on the receivers he’s jamming or the people that are trying to block him. Plus, he’s a very smart guy. He’s a senior now, and he understands what we’re trying to accomplish as a defense.” West has the luxury of a secondary full of potential college recruits. In addition to Noble, Eric Cowan, Trey Mashore and Darryl Jackson Jr. could play on the next level. “As a unit, we could lock people down,” Noble said. Noble’s commitment is the first announcement out of West this season. Noble’s first cousin, dynamic quarterback B.J. Sherrill, also is being recruited by many schools. Settling the recruiting is-

sue early should help Noble focus on helping West pursue its seventh straight NPC title and third straight 3A championship. The Falcons have won 31 games in a row. “It really is a load off my back,” Noble said. Young said Noble plans to attend Georgia Tech’s opener against South Carolina State at Bobby Dodd Stadium on Nov. 4, and he’s happy a tough decision is out of the way. “Early is better,” Young said. “We’ve had a lot of guys — Parks, Smith, Tristan Dorty (Wake), Kendall High (UNC) — get it done early, and Domonique learned from those recruits.” The Jackets have announced 13 commitments so far, including four from North Carolina. Noble became friends with linebacker Tremayne McNair (Jacksonville White Oak) and quarterback Vad Lee (Durham Hillside) during the recruiting process. Athlete Airyn Willis, Southwest Guilford’s QB, is also an early commitment. A year ago, Noble didn’t envision a recruiting rush, but he’s deserving. “I always worked as hard as I could with the idea of being a good high school player,” he said. “To get national recognition, that’s very unexpected, and it means a lot. I appreciate my family, my coaches and my teammates for helping me get here.”

Rangers flirt with no-hitter Associated Press

ARLINGTON, Texas — Joe Mauer’s clean single to center field with one out in the ninth inning broke up the no-hit bid of four Texas Rangers pitchers. The Rangers beat the Minnesota Twins 4-0 on Monday night in the sixth no-hitter this season broken up in the ninth inning. Starter Rich Harden was activated from the disabled list earlier in the day and he went 62⁄3 innings before being lifted after throwing 111 pitches. Matt Harrison got the final out of the seventh. Darren O’Day pitched the eighth and All-Star closer Neftali Feliz got one in the ninth before Mauer singled. Texas prevailed in the matchup of division leaders but fell two outs shy of its first no-hitter since Kenny Rogers’ perfect game against California on July 28, 1994. Blue Jays 3, Yankees 2 TORONTO — Jose Bautista hit a two-run homer, then added a tiebreaking solo drive in the eighth inning for his majorsleading 40th of the season for Toronto. Scott Downs (5-5) pitched one inning for the win and Kevin Gregg finished in the ninth for his 28th save in 32 chances. Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow allowed two runs and four hits in six innings. He walked two and struck out 12. Red Sox 6, Mariners 3 BOSTON — Marco Scutaro’s second two-run single gave Boston the lead for good and John Lackey pitched eight strong innings. Adrian Beltre and J.D. Drew both had two singles for the Red Sox, who won their third straight after their most lopsided loss of the season last Friday. Lackey (12-7) gave up three runs — two earned — and six hits, striking out 10 and walking two in his best start since he took a no-hitter into the eighth inning at Seattle on July 22. Tigers 12, Royals 3 DETROIT — Ryan Raburn drove in three runs and scored twice to help Detroit continue a strong homestand. Jhonny Peralta and Brandon Inge also drove in three runs for the Tigers, who are 4-0 since returning home and have outscored the opposition 31-6. Jeremy Bonderman (7-9) got the win, ending a threestart losing streak by allowing two runs on eight hits in six innings. National League WASHINGTON — Mike Quade got his first major league win, and so did Casey Coleman. The post-Piniella Chicago Cubs are off to quite a start. Coleman, a rookie righthander, took a one-hitter into the seventh inning, and Cubs interim manager Quade had a successful debut Monday night in a 9-1 victory over the Washington Nationals. Making his second start and sixth major league appearance, Coleman (1-1) allowed one run and three hits with three strikeouts and two walks. Cardinals 10, Pirates 2 PITTSBURGH — Albert Pujols hit a three-run home run one pitch after injured Pirates starter Ross Ohlendorf was pulled during a four-run St. Louis first inning, and the Cardinals moved to within a game of the NL wild card lead by beating Pittsburgh. Kyle Lohse (2-5), making his second start since spending nearly three months on the disabled list with a right forearm injury, pitched five scoreless innings before giving up Garrett Jones’ tworun homer in the sixth. Astros 3, Phillies 2 PHILADELPHIA — Brett Myers threw seven sharp innings against his former team, Carlos Lee hit a go-ahead two-run single in the eighth and the Astros beat the Phillies. The wild card-leading Phillies lost for just the sixth time in their last 30 home games.

Second DL trip for Strasburg Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Stephen Strasburg is headed back to the disabled list, and his prized right arm will undergo yet another examination that will largely determine whether he pitches again this season. The Washington Nationals rookie will have a second MRI exam to see if anything more than a strained tendon in his forearm caused him to grimace after throwing a changeup in Saturday’s game at Philadelphia. Strasburg was removed from the game and underwent an MRI on Sunday. The MRI “showed some things on there that led us to set up another MRI,” general manager Mike Rizzo said Monday. The GM said the upcoming test will be done in the “next day or two” and will use an injection of dye that should render “a full view of what’s going on in there.” For now, the Nationals are still calling Strasburg’s injury a flexor strain in his throwing arm. He had been scheduled to start again Thursday, but instead will find himself on the disabled list for the second time in less than a month. The Nationals are expected to soon make the move official. “He’s anxious to find out what’s going on,” Rizzo said. “He felt good today. His elbow felt good. ... To say he’s little anxious, a little emotional would be fair to say.” Strasburg, who is 5-3 with a 2.91 ERA and 92 strikeouts in 68 innings, was hurt while making his third start since returning from the disabled list because of inflammation in the back of his right shoulder. Rizzo said Strasburg arrived at Nationals Park on Monday hoping do some throwing. The Nationals, who have been extremely cautious

with Strasburg’s development, told him no. Strasburg has told the team he had a similar problem in college at San Diego State and pitched through it. He was the No. 1 pick in the 2009 draft. “It’s discouraging for Stephen,” manager Jim RigSTRASBURG gleman said. The Nationals clarified remarks Rizzo made Sunday, when the general manager said Strasburg went through a normal post-start workout that including some light throwing. The Nationals said Rizzo misspoke and that Strasburg did not throw on Sunday. Rizzo wouldn’t speculate on whether Strasburg could be shelved for the season, saying the team will wait for the results on the next test and take a “prudent course of action after that.” Fellow Nationals starter John Lannan also had swelling around his flexor tendon earlier this season and missed one start. The Nationals have been careful to limit the innings and take every other precaution with their 22-yearold phenom — he was taken out of a game recently because of a protest in the outfield that delayed the game for a few minutes. Riggleman is familiar with promising pitchers who flame out early, having managed a young Kerry Wood with the Chicago Cubs. Riggleman said it’s important to properly deal with the “red flags” that arise early. “It just seems like pitchers get to a point where they’re past all the issues, guys like Livan (Hernandez) and Miguel (Batista),” Riggleman said. “It just seems like it’s the way it goes with these young pitchers.”

Damon has decision to make DETROIT (AP) — It’s all up to Johnny Damon now: Play out the season in Detroit, or rejoin the Boston Red Sox for another playoff chase. The Red Sox have claimed the 36year-old outfielder on waivers from the Tigers, and Damon was deciding Monday whether to go. Once a fan favorite at Fenway Park, he’s been booed there ever since he defected to the rival Yankees. Damon had a little time to make up his mind — teams have 48 hours to work out a deal — and the other Tigers were trying to help with the decision. “My teammates are making this

decision easier by saying they want me to stay,” he said after Monday’s 12-3 win over Kansas City. “My gut and everything else tells me that Detroit’s the place for me.” Damon, though, said he wants to talk to Tigers president Dave Dombrowski before making a decision. His contract includes a clause that gives him veto power over trades to all but eight teams. Because the Red Sox aren’t one of those clubs, he can block any move. Detroit could work out a trade with Boston to complete the deal if Damon gives the OK, and that might bring the Tigers a prospect in return.

Helton snaps out of funk DENVER (AP) — That’s the Todd Helton of old. Usually that Rockies 5 term’s been used Braves 4 in front of his name during his summer of struggles at the plate. Helton capped his first four-hit game in more than a year with a tiebreaking RBI single off lefty Jonny Venters in the eighth inning Monday night that lifted the Colorado Rockies to a 5-4 win over the Atlanta Braves. “I don’t know if it’s satisfaction or surprise,” Helton said of his first four-hit night since July 16, 2009, against San Diego. Helton dribbled a single over second base to score Carlos Gonzalez from second and make a winner of reliever Rafael Betancourt (4-1), who gave up the tying run in the top of the eighth. Huston Street got the final three outs for his 11th save in 15 chances. Venters fell to 4-1. Helton is starting to break out of a season-long slump this month — he’s hitting .308 (16-for-52) since coming off the DL on Aug. 3, and Monday night he raised his season batting average 10 points to .257. Two pitches before his gamewinner, he was knocked down by a wayward 97 mph fastball from Venters that glanced off his bat. Venters then buckled Helton’s knees with an inside curveball before leaving another heater out over the

plate. “It woke me up a little bit, right at my head, sinking in,” Helton said of the fastball that whizzed by his face. “It was almost a career changer.” And the fastball he hit up the middle was just as nasty. “The guy’s throwing 97 and it’s sinking all over the HELTON place,” Helton said. “I knew he was going to throw me a fastball. It was just a matter if I could hit it or not. There wasn’t much I could do with that, just put it in play and hopefully find a hole. Not a comfortable atbat, no.” Rockies manager Jim Tracy, who won his 700th career game, lauded Helton for his nerve to stay in there after getting dirtied. Pshaw, said Helton. “Yeah, I was pulling off a little bit. You saw the breaking ball before that. If he’d have thrown that for a strike, I’d have been out,” Helton said. “But I knew he was going to throw a fastball because his fastball’s that good.” Braves catcher Brian McCann was thoroughly impressed by Helton. “We were calling a sinker in but he kept his hands in and did the only thing you could do with it — drive it up the middle,” McCann said.

PARNELL

were four-seam fastballs, and the 102.5-mph offering to Johnson was a swinging third strike. Injured Detroit Tigers reliever Joel Zumaya hit 102.2 two times earlier this season, and a 102.0-mph pitch from Parnell to Jason Castro in the same appearance against Houston ranks fourth in the majors this year. According to Efastball.com, Parnell would be tied for sixth place in MLB history on the site’s “fastest pitchers ever” list. He’d join Nolan Ryan (career high of 108.1 mph in 1974), Bob Feller (107.6 in 1946), Zumaya (104.8 in 2006), Mark Wohlers (103.0 in 1995), Jonathan Broxton (102.6 in 2009) and Steve Dalkowski (102.5 in 1958).

FROM 1B “We’re moving into that direction where we have a lot of our own people going out there and doing a pretty good job. “Unfortunately, Parnell, in the eighth inning, we’ve used him in the past, he hasn’t closed out the innings. Very seldom has he gotten an out. But he’s got to mature into that, because he has the stuff to be a closer.” Parnell has received national notoriety for his performance against the Astros.

Titans defeat Arizona

Two more starters injured for Dallas Associated Press

BY TERESA M. WALKER Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — National 24 c h a m p i Titans Cardinals 10 onship, regular season or simply an exhibition. The setting doesn’t seem to matter, not when Vince Young is playing Matt Leinart. Young outdueled Leinart yet again, Chris Johnson ran for a touchdown and Tennessee beat the Arizona Cardinals 24-10 Monday night in the Titans’ preseason home opener. The Titans (1-1) never trailed as Johnson scored on his sixth carry, an 8-yard TD that capped an 85-yard drive. The All-Pro watched from the bench the rest of the night. The top two quarterbacks taken in the 2006 draft didn’t play very much in the preseason matchup. At least Leinart didn’t have to watch Young drive his team down the field late for the win like he did in the 2006 BCS national championship or on this very field last Nov. 29 with a 99-yard drive for a 20-17 win. Young has no competition for his starting job these days, and he was 9 of 13 for 128 yards. The former Texas star left after four series with a 10-0 lead. Leinart is trying to hold off Derek Anderson for the starting job in Arizona. Leinart, who starred for Southern California in college, was 4 of 6 for 28 yards but produced no points for a second straight preseason game. The Cardinals (1-1) went three-and-out on each of his three series. Young struggled a bit early but completed three of four passes for 67 yards to set up Johnson’s TD run. On his fourth drive, Young fumbled the ball off his chest while scrambling only to see the ball bounce right back to him as he finished off an 8-yard gain for a first down. Three plays later, Nate Washington got his hands underneath a low throw initially ruled incomplete. Coach Jeff Fisher challenged and the replay showed he made the catch. Young drove the Titans to first-and-goal before they stalled. He tried to scramble up the middle on third down and was sacked by Paris Lenon and Adrian Wilson. Still, Rob Bironas’ 29-yard field goal capped the clockconsuming drive.

albert Haynesworth said he shouldn’t have been playing with the reserves saturday.

Shanahan, Haynesworth mum about their meeting Associated Press

ASHBURN, Va. — Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan met with Albert Haynesworth on Monday and kept the conversation to himself, saying it’s “completely ridiculous” to keep talking about it publicly. “If you guys want to talk about football, we’ll talk about football,” Shanahan said. “But to keep on talking about things outside of football to me is completely ridiculous. I did have a conversation with him. If you want to talk about football, we’ll talk about football.” So Shanahan gave no response to the strong words uttered by the disgruntled nose tackle following Saturday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Haynesworth accused the coach of mischaracterizing the reason he missed practice last week and said he will stay away from the Redskins’ offseason workout program again next year. Reports say Haynesworth was suffering from a muscle condition called rhabdomyolysis, but Shanahan told AOL Fanhouse on Sunday that he was “not aware of that.” Shanahan had given various reasons for Haynesworth’s inability to practice, eventually attributing it to a headache. Haynesworth did not talk to reporters Monday but was back at practice for the first time in a week. Shanahan has maintained that the twotime All-Pro tackle must practice regularly to play and work his way back to a starting role. He has made Haynesworth practice and play with the backups.

Haynesworth, who failed a conditioning test and missed the first nine days of training camp practice, said Saturday he shouldn’t have been playing with the reserves during the Ravens game. “We’re going to practice him as much as we can and get him ready to play,” Shanahan said Monday. “Hopefully he doesn’t miss any practices, and when he plays he plays well.” Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett, who has worked closely with Haynesworth amid the player-head coach feud, said Haynesworth is “in the mix” to become a starter before the regular season opener Sept. 12. “Obviously he’s a good football player when he’s in shape, healthy, ready to go,” Haslett said. “We need to find that out here in the next three weeks. ... He just has to get going, that’s all. It’s time to stop all this and just go.” Haynesworth’s teammates are looking forward to putting the dispute behind them. “Sometimes there’s frustration that takes place, but any time you have 80 players on the roster you’re going to have little things come up,” linebacker London Fletcher said. “Certain things should just stay in the locker room. Nowadays things get out.” Cornerback Carlos Rogers said players are more worried about their own jobs than Haynesworth’s situation. “I don’t think it affects nobody in this locker room,” Rogers said. “They worry about what they’ve got to do. That’s been going on since the summer. We’ve really been going without him.”

OXNARD, Calif. — Scratch two more Dallas Cowboys starters with injuries, making it four this preseason. And it’s looking less likely Dez Bryant will play in any exhibition games, either. The bright side, said coach Wade Phillips, is that almost everyone is expected back for the season opener. Free safety Gerald Sensabaugh and inside linebacker Keith Brooking are sitting out because of shoulder injuries. Both were hurt in the preseason game, against San Diego on Saturday night. Sensabaugh is likely to be back for the opener Sept. 12. He posted on Twitter, “I should be ready by Washington. Rehab going great ...” Mike Hamlin replaced Sensabaugh on the first team Monday. It was Hamlin’s first practice since suffering a concussion. Brooking’s injury isn’t as bad, but there’s a good chance he’ll get both games off. Besides the shoulder problem, he’s coming off knee surgery, he’s 34 and he’s played well in his limited action thus far. Plus, his absence means more playing time for second-round draft pick Sean Lee, who can use the extra work after missing the first two preseason games with an injury. Lee got off to a good start by making 13 tackles against the Chargers. Phillips said there were plenty of mistakes, too, but he raved, “That guy was all over the field.” “He made some plays a lot of people can’t make,” Phillips said. Dallas lost two offensive linemen last week, with right tackle Marc Colombo and left guard Kyle Kosier going down with knee injuries. Colombo is expected back for the opener but Kosier is out for up to three games; he’s the only guy already expected to miss the opener. Robert Brewster started in Colombo’s place against the Chargers and “still has a ways to go” before he’s ready. So veteran Alex Barron joined the first team Monday in his first practice since returning from an ankle injury. Barron was acquired from St. Louis in the offseason as an insurance policy at both tackle spots. Montrae Holland did so well in Kosier’s place that Phillips let him lead the end of practice cheer in the group huddle. Phillips picks a different player every day and this time he pointed out it was a reward for Holland’s steady performance against the Chargers. Players broke into a Flori-

fidence boost. “We’ve got a lot of new people there and I think they’ve seen some success,” coach John Fox said. “Hopefully, we can continue that and stay healthy.” Injuries were a concern Monday. Brayton, Martin, Marshall (knee), cornerback Captain Munnerlyn (calf) and safety C.J. Wilson (hip), who had a 31-yard fumble return for a touchdown against Baltimore, sat out practice. But none are believed to be serious injuries. So while the Panthers’ offense is still seeking its first touchdown of the preseason and special teams gaffes keeping the coaches busy, the mostly anonymous young guys on defense are carrying the team. “We have guys who know how to play the game, full speed and all out,” Beason said. “Sometimes you make mistakes, but usually when you’re giving great effort good things happen.”

DEFENSE FroM 1B Beason, who said he hasn’t missed an assignment there in two games, had two tackles against the Jets. The inexperienced Dan Connor, who replaced Beason in the middle, had a team-high six tackles, including one for a loss. “Dan’s doing great,” Beason said. “He’s out there having fun and he’s flying around making plays. He’s leading, he’s making calls. He’s speaking more than he ever has, so I feel real comfortable about what’s going on right now.” The biggest surprise is the defensive line. When Peppers and his franchise-record 81 career sacks left for Chicago, the Panthers entered training camp with a roster of 13 defensive linemen with a combined 361⁄2 career sacks. But that youthful, speedy group has produced 11 sacks in two exhibition games. Tyler Brayton, the only returning starter, had two sacks against the Ravens before sitting out the Jets game with a sprained left ankle. Brown, who started in Brayton’s place Saturday, rookie Greg Hardy, Nick Hayden and Eric Moore all have two sacks. The depth left Beason wondering aloud Monday “Who’s going to be here?” after final cuts. There are still a number of defensive tackles rotating in with the first team. “It’s scary, man. Good teams, they’re deep at the Dline position,” Beason said. “Guys rotate, just like running backs and receivers. Get a hot

da State chant, a nod to Holland’s alma mater. Bryant has been expected all along to be ready to face the Redskins. It’s whether he can get into a game before then that keeps changing. He was told Monday that he won’t be playing against Houston on Saturday night. GIANTS EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Eli Manning was wearing a blue Giants baseball cap to cover his head and the meding 3-inch wound on the left side of his forehead, but he was back at practice and getting ready to start Saturday’s nextto-last preseason game against the Ravens in Baltimore. RAMS ST. LOUIS — A.J. Feeley’s thumb injury put No. 1 pick Sam Bradford on the fast track. The rookie from Oklahoma gets his first start with the St. Louis Rams this week by default. With two preseason games to go, he has a chance to seize the position that everybody knows will be his eventually. “There’s no doubt in my mind that he will lead this team,” safety Oshiomoghe Atogwe said. “He has to play and he has to get a feel and make this offense his own offense, and that takes time.” “Whenever that does happen, it’s full speed ahead.” The Rams have a short week with only two practices before playing Thursday night at New England. BRONCOS ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver released running back Toney Baker, who joined the team as a college free agent out of N.C. State. JETS FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — All-Pro center Nick Mangold and the Jets are close on a contract extension, coach Rex Ryan acknowledged. The deal would make the two-time Pro Bowl selection one of the highest-paid players at his position. SAINTS METAIRIE, La. — Saints running back P.J. Hill is lost for the season because of an arm injury, and New Orleans has signed free-agent running back DeShawn Wynn. DOLPHINS DAVIE, Fla. — Miami Dolphins coach Tony Sparano says he doesn’t expect Pat White to play in the team’s exhibition Friday against Atlanta, an indication the second-year quarterback’s roster spot is in jeopardy. White is fourth on the depth chart behind Chad Henne, Chad Pennington and Tyler Thigpen, and Sparano has said he’ll keep only three quarterbacks.

India proud of Atwal BY C. RAJSHEKHAR RAO Associated Press

NEW DELHI — Arjun Atwal did more than win a golf tournament. He may well have changed how the sport is regarded in India. “Undoubtedly the biggest thing to happen to Indian golf,” said Gaurav Ghei, who in 1997 became the first Indian to qualify for the British Open. “An achievement that most of us never even dreamt of.” Atwal captured the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro by one stroke. He is India’s first PGA Tour winner and the first Monday qualifier to win on the tour in 24 years. Atwal, plagued with injuries the last year, finished at 20-under 260 to win by one stroke. He led by three shots entering the final round. He made $918,000 — more than double what he previously earned this year. The victo-

ry allows him to play on the PGA Tour for two years. Atwal had to play his way into the Wyndham after losing his tour card last month because he was too low on the money list when his medical exemption ran out. He had injured his shoulders weightlifting. “I do remember Atwal saying that he wanted to win on the PGA Tour,” said Ghei, who has three Asian Tour titles since turning pro in 1991. “Hats off to him for sticking it out in the U.S. on his own and doing it. It was a proud moment to see the Indian flag flying high. I hope this acts as a springboard for the game here.” Brandon De Souza, who has organized most of the golf tournaments in India the past two decades, called it a conquest of the “last frontier.” “Indians had already won on the Asian, European and Japanese tours, but this is a new high,” De Souza said.

Divorced. Single dad. Golf game still to be determined. And so, after nine months of turmoil over his extramarital affairs, now begins the next chapter in the life and times of Tiger Woods. In a hearing that lasted no more than 10 minutes in a Florida judge’s chambers, Woods and his Swedish-born wife officially divorced Monday. “We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future,” Woods and Elin Nordegren said in a joint statement released by their lawyers. The divorce was granted shortly after 2 p.m. in Bay County Circuit Court in Panama City, Fla., about 375 miles from their Isleworth home outside Orlando, where Woods drove his SUV over a fire hydrant and into a tree on Thanksgiving night. That set off shocking revelations that sports’ biggest star had been cheating on his wife through multiple affairs. Woods’ life and golf game have been in disarray ever since. He and Nordegren were married Oct. 5, 2004, in Barbados. They have a 3-year-old daughter, Sam, and an 18-month-old son, Charlie. Terms of the divorce — such as how much it will cost Woods — were not disclosed. They said only that they will “share parenting” of their two children. Nordegren, who for years tried to stay in the background, was captured on video by celebrity websites eating lunch or picking up her daughter from school. “We love Elin, and we are so proud of the grace and strength she has shown during this difficult time,” her father, Thomas Nordegren, a talk show host at national broadcaster Swedish Radio, told The Associated Press. “We know that she will come out of this even stronger and has a bright future in front of her.” The divorce was finalized by Bay County Circuit Judge Judy Pittman Biebel during a 10-minute hearing in a conference room in her chambers, according to Biebel’s judicial assistant, Kim Gibson. Woods and Nordegren were present, along with their lawyers, Gibson said. “I don’t comment on active cases,” Thomas J. Sasser, Woods’ divorce attorney, said. Asked why they chose to file in Panama City, Sasser said it was a joint decision by the lawyers. Nordegren’s attorneys — including

this photo from 2009 shows tiger Woods, daughter sam Woods and wife elin Nordegren standing before a stanford football game. her twin sister, London-based Josefin Lonnborg — referred all questions to the statement. Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, declined to comment when asked if the couple had a prenuptial agreement or terms of the settlement. “We’re not commenting beyond what was in the release,” he said. Nordegren’s mother, Barbro Holmberg, also declined to comment. Nordegren, who once worked as a nanny for Swedish golfer Jesper Parnevik, asked to have her maiden name restored as Elin Maria Pernilla Nordegren. The sordid sex scandal cost Woods three major corporate sponsors — Accenture, AT&T and Gatorade — worth millions of dollars, and he lost his stature the gold standard in sports endorsements. A month after the scandal became public, Woods spent two months in therapy at a Mississippi clinic with hopes of saving his marriage. “While we are no longer married, we are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness has been, and will always be, of paramount importance to both of us,” they said in the statement. “The weeks and months ahead will not be easy for them as we adjust to a new family situation, which is why our privacy must be a principal concern.” Some of the court documents indicated that Woods had to focus on his mari-

tal woes as well as his golf this summer. He completed a four-hour course on “Parent Education and Family Stabilization” on July 10, the day before he left to play the British Open. He had won the previous two times at St. Andrews by a combined 13 shots, but this time finished 13 shots behind in a tie for 23rd. The couple signed a marital settlement agreement on July 3 and July 4, the weekend of the AT&T National outside Philadelphia, where Woods failed to break par in a PGA Tour event for the first time in 11 years. Nordegren completed her four-hour program through FloridaParentingClass.com on Aug. 16, the day after Woods tied for 28th in the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits. It was the first time in nearly seven years he had finished out of the top 20 in consecutive majors. Documents also show that the children lived at their primary home at Isleworth until November 2009 — the Woods car crash was Nov. 27 — and that Nordegren had moved out to a nearby residence since then. Woods is to play this week at The Barclays, his first tournament as a single man in nearly six years. He needs a good performance just to get out of the first round of the FedEx Cup playoffs, which he won the previous two times he played, and he also is trying to show he is worth picking for the Ryder Cup.

Jeff Gordon (24) leads elliott sadler (19) and denny Hamlin (11) during the race at Michigan.

VETERAN FroM 1B In Cup, Sadler only has one top-10 this entire season and a grand total of six of them over his last 60 starts. But it’s not entirely Sadler’s fault. When he jumped from Yates Racing to Ray Evernham Motorsports midway through the 2006 season, he figured he was moving into the best opportunity of his career. Instead, the team was sold to George Gillett Jr., and what was left of the original organization later merged with Richard Petty Motorsports. As funding dried up, the team tried to push Sadler out before the start of the 2009 season. Sadler fought to keep his job, but it’s not exactly proven to be worth his while. He’s had six different crew chiefs since 2006 — four of whom had never held the position before — and has slogged along through financial uncertainty that seems to have affected to some degree everyone in the organization except Kasey Kahne. And Kahne, so eager to move on himself, announced in April a deal to drive for Hendrick Motorsports two years from now. He didn’t even care that there was no plan for what he’d do next season when he decided to leave. So now Sadler waits to see what’s next, and when he left Bristol this weekend, he had no idea. “I wish I had an answer,” Sadler said. “A couple of weeks ago I really thought I had something lined up and it kind of slipped away. I was thinking, ‘I’ve got to regroup

and try something else.’ What I want to do is be competitive and run up front. I don’t care what the vehicle looks like that I run in.” And that’s what likely will continue Sadler’s career. He drove for KHI at Bristol in both the Trucks and Nationwide races. He was in contention for the win in the truck, and finished third after winning the pole and leading 26 laps in Nationwide. Harvick has been impressed with Sadler’s performance and turned into one of his biggest supporters. “I think in the right stuff he can be competitive at whatever level he is in,” Harvick said. “You don’t just win all the races that he won ... and just forget how to drive, and at some point you are only as good as what you drive. “I don’t know all the ins and outs of that particular situation (at RPM), but every time he has been in our No. 2 truck, he is in the top-five and competitive every week.” It’s catching people’s attention, and giving Sadler a confidence that some think is what he’s been lacking in the Cup car. “I think he’s just been in a bad situation, and sometimes it takes really searching yourself to find out what’s going on,” Evernham said. “What’s happening is that Kevin Harvick is saying, ‘Hey, Elliott Sadler can still drive a race car.’ I’ve always believed he could, and I don’t know why he doesn’t run any better than he does in the Cup stuff. “Like every athlete, they get in a slump and it takes something to spark them out of it. Maybe this is the spark that brings him out of the slump.”

Racing notes Associated Press

OSKALOOSA, Iowa — A drag racer died of injuries from a crash at Eddyville Raceway Park in Oskaloosa, Iowa. Track co-owner Scott Gardner says Tim Hay of Burleson, Texas, died during an Outlaw Fuel Altereds race on Saturday. Gardner says the 49-year-old Hay lost control of his car, slammed into a safety wall and rolled over. The track says on its website that funeral arrangements were pending. 

GENEVA — Swiss bank UBS has signed a long-term deal to sponsor Formula One. The bank declines to say how much it is paying to be linked to the world’s biggest motor sport event. A statement by the bank says “commercial attractiveness was however a key consideration.”

Sadler would like to put something together with Harvick for 2010, and believes he will drive some for the team, he just doesn’t know to what extent. Either way, the Harvicks have given him a second chance that he’s not taking lightly. “The coolest thing about racing for Kevin is they believe in me 100 percent,” he said. “They believe in what I’m telling them, they believe when I get in the car or truck that they have a legitimate shot to run up front, lead laps and win races. To me, that’s a really good feeling.”
